Tumalo man arrested in fatal shooting of son By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

A 61-year-old Tumalo man is in the Deschutes County jail awaiting a Friday arraignment after police say he shot and killed his 29-year-old son in their home Sunday night. James Hargrave was arrested Monday at his home north of Tumalo, at 65180 Highland Road, and charged with one count each of murder and unlawful use of a weapon.

James Hargrave

At 10:42 p.m. Sunday, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call reporting that Hargrave had shot his son, Steven Hargrave. Sheriff’s Capt. Marc Mills said it appears the pair had had a dispute that was likely “fueled by alcohol.” Mills said Pamela Hargrave, the victim’s mother and the suspect’s wife, was on the property at the time of the shooting.

Group disputes Nativity scene at Prineville plaza By Duffie Taylor The Bulletin

Last December, the Freedom from Religion Foundation sparked controversy in Prineville by complaining about the display of a Nativity scene on public property. Now, one year later, the group is preparing to challenge the city again. This time, it’s focusing on

the city’s decision to allow a private group to erect a manger scene on public property rented out for the month of December. Annie Laurie Gaylor, copresident of the Madison, Wis.based nonprofit, calls the city’s solution “a new strategy to get around the law” and questions its constitutionality.

She said her group and its attorneys plan to send a letter to city officials this week, requesting a number of public records, including the permit process for allowing private residents to rent public spaces and a copy of the minutes from the May meeting during which the current solution was proposed.

Astronomers find biggest black holes yet

Don’t get too close. Astronomers are reporting that they have taken the measure of the biggest, baddest black holes yet found in the universe, abyssal yawns

10 times the size of our solar system into which billions of suns have vanished like a guilty thought. Such holes, they say, might be the gravitational cornerstones of galaxies and clues to the fates of violent quasars,

the almost supernaturally powerful explosions in the hearts of young galaxies that dominated the early years of the universe. One of these newly surveyed monsters, which weighs as much as 21 billion

suns, is in an egg-shaped swirl of stars known as NGC 4889, the brightest galaxy in a sprawling cloud of thousands of galaxies about 336 million light-years away in the Coma constellation. See Black holes / A6

On Oct. 16, a man paced through Bend’s Orchard District near Pilot Butte, screaming that he was going to kill someone. He was a patient at a nearby mental health treatment home on Northeast Edgecliff Circle. It’s unclear whether his comments were directed at anyone, and a woman later told police officers that he disappeared into the home when she came out to investigate. Nonetheless, the incident rekindled a year-old debate about the treatment center’s location within a residential neighborhood. The facility is one of two that Telecare Corp., an Alameda, Calif.-based company, opened a year ago in a northeast Bend neighborhood. The second home is on Northeast 12th Street. Nancy Gilbertson, who lives on Edgecliff Circle, said the home brought a group of strangers into a close-knit community. Along with others in the neighborhood, she still holds out hope that Telecare will decide it made a mistake and move the facility somewhere else. “There are more appropriate places,” Gilbertson said. Edgecliff Circle residents worried last year not only about safety but also about their property values, which they believed would fall as their quiet cul-de-sac became clogged with the vehicles of patients and employees. Many people felt betrayed by the company and by local officials for allowing such homes to open without warning neighbors adequately or giving them a say in the process. Lately, some neighbors have wondered whether the state has reneged on what they consider a promise not to place patients with criminal histories at the two homes. They have questioned a state policy that will force patients who smoke to do so off of the centers’ property, meaning they could end up smoking in front of neighbors’ homes. See Mental health / A5

LOS ANGELES — Sound has long been used as a weapon. The Germans put sirens on Stuka dive bombers in World War II to amplify the terror to unlucky souls below. Jamaican maroons — fugitive slaves — used the abeng horn to unnerve British colonial soldiers. The U.S. Army blasted rock music to torment former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega. And according to the Bible, Joshua brought down the walls of Jericho by having his priests blow rams’ horns. Now, the power of loud noise is being harnessed by police departments. A device known as the sound cannon is joining Tasers, rubber bullets and pepper spray in law enforcement’s expanding arsenal of nonlethal weapons. It’s officially called the Long Range Acoustical Device, or LRAD, and it has two primary uses. One is as a high-tech megaphone that generates a beam of sound that can cut through the din of a noisy protest far better than conventional public-address systems. It also functions as a tactical weapon — projecting a high-pitch chirping sound that makes people cover their ears and run away. And with a maximum volume of 149 decibels, the LRAD can get about as loud as a jetliner on takeoff. Pittsburgh police used LRADs mounted on an armored vehicle to break up demonstrations jamming the city’s downtown during the Group of 20 international economic conference in 2009. More recently, New York police officers used small, hand-held LRADs to bark orders as they ousted the Occupy Wall Street protest from Zuccotti Park. The Los Angeles Police Department has an undisclosed number of LRADs, but they are larger devices fixed to vehicles, which they say might have been helpful in breaking up the Occupy L.A. encampment at City Hall last week. Police did not have hand-held units. LAPD Cmdr. Bob Green said orders to disperse made with bullhorns went largely unheard because of the din of crowd chants and helicopters hovering overhead. The police had to use pickup trucks with

massive speakers to get the orders across. “It’s frustrating when you’re not heard in those situations because ultimately it’s all about communications,” Green said. “Bad things happen when the batons are out and the adrenaline is flowing. So, if there’s something better out there to get the message across, let’s have it.” The device was developed for the Pentagon by San Diego military contractor LRAD Corp. after the Sept. 11 terror attacks as a sonic weapon to help control unruly crowds, foil hijackers and keep other potential threats at bay. The Pentagon and law enforcement agencies are among the biggest customers, but there are civilian uses as well. LRAD sells sound cannons to yacht owners as a means of keeping pirates from boarding. In 2005, an LRAD sound cannon staved off an attack by pirates on a five-star German-built cruise ship, called Seabourn Spirit, off the coast of Somalia. Although it may be nonlethal, critics say that it could damage hearing or cause psychological harm. Although the New York Police Department denies ever using the LRAD for anything other than a loudspeaker, the device is capable of incapaci-

tating people. That was the sales pitch to the Pentagon when San Diego inventor Elwood Norris developed the LRAD idea. The device differs from previous sound technology in that the person standing behind or next to the device does not hear the sound as loudly. Conventional speaker systems generate sound that spreads out. On an LRAD, the sound is condensed into a single beam. “You can direct the beam wherever you want,” Stuckey said. “It hits the sweet spot of human hearing. It’s similar to having a really bright light in your eyes.” Its debilitating effect can be seen in a YouTube video of a crowd of protesters at the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh in 2009. Police rolled through the street in an armored truck with an LRAD device fixed atop like a turret generating a loud sound

beam into the crowd. In an instant, the highpitched chirping appears to compel nearly everyone in the crowd to cover their ears. In the crowd was Karen Piper, an English professor at the University of Missouri, who says she suffered immediate pain in her ears and became nauseous and dizzy. Piper said she was unable to cover her ears because she was holding bags, her purse and a camera. “All of a sudden I heard this excruciating high-pitched noise. It was debilitating,” she said this week. “I never heard anything like it before.” A federal lawsuit filed in September against the Pittsburgh Police Department by the American Civil Liberties Union on her behalf states that she suffered permanent hearing loss. LRAD declined to comment on the lawsuit.

ESSAY

A future where the cars drive, accident-free By Sebastian Thrun New York Times News Service

The Jetsons had them in the 1960s. They were the defining element of “Knight Rider” in the 1980s: cars that drive themselves. Self-driving cars appear in countless science fiction movies. By Hollywood standards, they are so normal we don’t even notice them. But in real life, they still don’t exist. So what if they were real? What if you could buy one today? When I was 18, I lost a close friend to a car accident. His friend had taken his father’s new Audi Quattro for a spin, and he took my friend along for the ride. On an icy road, the driver lost control of the car and collided head-on with a truck. Both he and my friend were declared dead at the scene. Too many people share the same fate. In 2010, the number of U.S. traffic fatalities was 32,788, according to the Department of Transportation. In recent years, nearly all states have passed laws prohibiting the use of handheld devices while driving. Nevada took a different approach. In a first, the state passed a law that legalizes texting, provided one does so in a self-driving autonomous car. This places Nevada at the forefront of innovation. I have spent the better part of my professional life trying to

They have driven from San Francisco to Los Angeles ... and have even descended crooked Lombard Street in San Francisco. create self-driving cars. At Google, I am working with a world-class team of engineers to turn science fiction into reality. Our cars memorize the road infrastructure in minute detail. They use computerized maps to determine where to drive, and to anticipate road signs, traffic lights and roadblocks long before they are visible to the human eye. Our cars use specialized lasers, radar and cameras to analyze traffic at a speed faster than the human brain can process. Our self-driving cars have now traveled nearly 200,000 miles on public highways in California and Nevada, 100 percent safely. They have driven from San Francisco to Los Angeles and around Lake Tahoe, and have even descended crooked Lombard Street in San Francisco. They drive anywhere a car can legally drive. I am confident that our selfdriving cars will transform mobility. By this I mean they

will affect all aspects of moving people and things around and result in a fundamentally improved infrastructure. Take today’s cities. They are full of parked cars. I estimate that the average car is immobile 96 percent of its lifetime. This situation leads to a world full of underused cars and occupied parking spaces. Self-driving cars will enable car sharing even in spreadout suburbs. A car will come to you just when you need it. And when you are done with it, the car will drive away, so you won’t have to look for parking. Self-driving cars can also change the way we use our highways. The European Union has recently started a program to develop technologies for vehicle platoons on public highways. “Platooning” is technical lingo for self-driving cars that drive so closely together that they behave more like trains than individual cars. Research at the University of California,

Berkeley, has shown that the fuel consumption of trucks can be reduced by up to 21 percent simply by drafting behind other trucks. And it is easy to imagine that our highways can bear more cars, if cars drive closer together. Some of these changes are far out in the future. But I envision a future in which our technology is available to everyone, in every car. I envision a future without traffic accidents or congestion. A future where everyone can use a car. — Sebastian Thrun is a Google Fellow and a research professor at Stanford.

T S Obama prods GOP on payroll tax cut Germany, By David Espo The Associated Press

President Barack Obama accepted a move by Senate Democrats to scale back his Social Security payroll tax cut extension on Monday, then prodded Republicans to support it despite a requirement for the very wealthy to pay more taxes. Obama also called on lawmakers to renew a program of extended unemployment benefits due to expire on Dec.

31. He said the checks, which kick in after six months of joblessness, are “the last line of defense between hardship and catastrophe” for some victims of the recession and a painfully slow recovery. The president made his remarks at the White House as Republicans and Democrats in Congress said a holiday-season package was beginning to come into focus that could cost $180 billion or more over

a decade. Elements include not only the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefit renewals, but also a provision to avert a threatened 27 percent reduction in fees to doctors who treat Medicare patients. While there are differences over the details of the three principal components — many Republicans are reluctant to extend the tax cut — there is at least as much disagreement among senior lawmakers in

the two political parties over ways to cover the cost so deficits don’t rise. House Republicans are drafting legislation to extend an existing pay freeze for federal workers as partial payment for the tax cut and unemployment benefits. Other costsavers are expected to include a proposal Obama advanced earlier this year to raise pension costs for federal employees, officials said.

Gingrich shown to have strong lead in Iowa By Dan Balz and Jon Cohen The Washington Post

DES MOINES, Iowa — Propelled by his debate performances and the demise of Herman Cain’s candidacy, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sits atop the Republican presidential field in Iowa with a clear lead over his closest competitors, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Gingrich, according to the survey, has advantages that extend well beyond the horse race that put him in an enviable position in the final weeks before the state’s Jan. 3 caucuses, which serve as the formal start of the long nominating season. On electability, empathy and handling the economy, he does as well as or better than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has long been described as the nominal front-runner for the nomination, or Rep. Ron Paul, of Texas. Gingrich’s emergence is the latest dramatic shift in the GOP contest that has made front-runners out of a series of contenders only to have them fall quickly back into the pack. Gingrich’s campaign was considered all but dead only a few months ago. The question now is whether he can capitalize on his current strengths to make himself a lasting contender. His support in national polls has been steadily increasing, and a victory in Iowa would probably give him a boost in the next two states to hold elections: New Hampshire, where he has been closing in on Romney, and South Carolina. But Romney’s advisers think they have the money and infrastructure to wage a protracted campaign even if he loses two of the first three states. No Republican has done that in the modern era, but the rules are different this year because some states will distribute delegates proportionally. With 33 percent support among likely caucus-goers in the new poll, Gingrich runs well ahead of his two main rivals, Romney and Paul, a libertarian whose passionate following and anti-government rhetoric have made him a durable force in the race. Both are at 18 percent.

An Egyptian street cleaner sits outside a polling station Monday in Cairo. A trickle of Egyptian voters headed to the polls Monday for two days of runoffs in the country’s first parliamentary elections since Hosni Mubarak’s ouster, a balloting in which Islamist parties already captured an overwhelming majority of the votes in the first round.

Mubarak’s old allies fare poorly in first Egyptian vote By Hannah Allam and Mohannad Sabry McClatchy-Tribune News Service

CAIRO — In a symbolic victory for Egypt’s revolutionaries, results from the first round of parliamentary elections show a popular rejection of any vestiges of deposed President Hosni Mubarak’s regime, with his old political allies trailing far behind Islamist and liberal blocs. Only weeks ago, analysts had predicted that Monday’s runoffs would be between the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist candidates and remnants from Mubarak’s now-disbanded National Democratic Party, which once boasted 2 million members and claimed to win 86 percent of the vote in the 2010 polls. Instead, parties led by former regime figures barely registered at the ballot box

last week, leaving voters in most runoff districts Monday to choose between conservative and ultraconservative Islamists. So far, only a couple of parties anchored by former Mubarak allies won parliamentary seats in the first round of voting, according to partial results. “Most expected the remnants to be on a par with the Islamists, and this didn’t pan out at all,” said Hani Shukrallah, a political commentator and the editor of the newspaper Ahram Online. “They’ve become more or less useless. The NDP was a big patronage system, and now people aren’t convinced it can still deliver after the revolution.” The old-guard parties’ dismal showing in round one was validation to Egyptian political observers that even if most voters are weary of disruptive demonstrations,

Monitors allege Russian vote fraud The Washington Post MOSCOW — Western observers reported Monday that the results of Russia’s parliamentary elections were seriously distorted by ballot stuffing and a lack of transparency, which suggests that the ruling United Russia party did even worse than the official count showed. The international monitors said the election process was slanted in favor of United Russia throughout the campaign and compromised by

the use of state resources on the party’s behalf. They especially criticized what they called partiality by the election commission. The widespread conviction that the results were inflated on behalf of United Russia set off a demonstration larger than any Moscow has seen in years, with 5,000 or more youthful protesters gathering around Chistye Prudy boulevard before police dispersed them Monday evening.

West pledges continued Afghan support By Juergen Baetz and Anne Gearan The Associated Press

BONN, Germany — The United States and other nations vowed Monday to keep supporting Afghanistan after most foreign forces leave the country in 2014, as the nation faces an enduring Taliban-led insurgency and possible financial collapse. “The United States is prepared to stand with the Af-

ghan people for the long haul,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a global conference on Afghanistan’s future that was overshadowed by the absence of key regional player Pakistan. The international community has “much to lose if the country again becomes a source of terrorism and instability,” she added. The Bonn conference is focused on the transfer of se-

curity responsibilities from international forces to Afghan security forces during the next three years, long-term prospects for international aid and a possible political settlement with the Taliban to ensure the country’s viability beyond 2014. About 100 countries and international organizations were represented among the 1,000 conference delegates, including some 60 foreign ministers.

they still support the revolution that unseated one of the world’s longest-serving autocrats.

France push for new rules By Steven Erlanger New York Times News Service

PARIS — Under the pressure of financial crisis and with the euro currency at stake, the two key leaders of the eurozone said Monday that they would together push to remake the EU into a more integrated political and economic federation, with tight legal restraints on how much debt national parliaments can issue. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, meeting here at the start of a crucial week that will end with a EU summit meeting taking place Thursday and Friday, called for amendments to European treaties that would include centralized oversight over budgets and automatic sanctions against any countries that violate firmer rules on deficits. The changes are among the most sweeping proposed since European countries began coordinating their economic policies in the aftermath of World War II. They would effectively subordinate economic sovereignty to collective discipline enforced by European technocrats in Brussels. “We want to make sure that the imbalances that led to the situation in the eurozone today cannot happen again,” Sarkozy told a joint news conference. Merkel, warmly embracing the French president despite their often testy relationship, insisted that the eurozone must be effectively reestab-

lished under a different set of rules. By pressing for a new treaty, the French and German leaders took big risks on two fronts. Their proposal threatens to divide the 17 countries that use the euro from the 27 nations that are part of the larger EU, some of which, like Britain, are likely to reject intrusive budget oversight from Brussels. And it remains uncertain how warmly national parliaments and voters even within the eurozone will embrace the changes. It is also unclear if promises of future action will be enough to pacify markets, which have been testing the resolve of European leaders for months. The two leaders are aiming to develop a clear consensus among the other members of the eurozone that they will push ahead with a new treaty. Sarkozy, saying that both leaders hoped the treaty changes would be adopted by all 27 members, and not just the 17 eurozone states, said that “risking disagreement would be risking the eurozone exploding.” Merkel used less dramatic rhetoric. “This package shows that we are absolutely determined to keep the euro as a stable currency and as an important contributor to European stability,” she said.

Iran blasts prompt speculation of secret attacks

U.S. mail may arrive a bit later By Steven Greenhouse New York Times News Service

The post office had bad news Monday for all those who like to pop a check into the mail to pay a bill due the next day: Don’t count on it. The United States Postal Service said it planned to largely eliminate next-day delivery for first-class mail as part of its

push to cut costs and reduce its budget deficit. Currently, more than 40 percent of first-class mail is delivered in one day. The agency said the slower delivery would result from its decision to shut about half of its 487 mail processing centers nationwide. The move is expected to eliminate about 28,000 jobs and increase the

distance that mail must travel between post offices and processing centers. It would be the first reduction in delivery standards for first-class mail in 40 years. Current standards call for delivering first-class mail in one to three days within the continental United States. Under the planned cutbacks,

those delivery times would increase to two or three days. The agency had announced on Sept. 15 that it would begin studying plans to close 252 of its mail processing centers. On Monday, the Postal Service said it would “move forward” with that plan, with closings to begin as early as March.

JERUSALEM — A series of mishaps at Iranian nuclear facilities and weapons sites may be part of a covert organized attack on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, according to Western intelligence officials. An explosion last week outside Iran’s third largest city, Isfahan, is thought to be the most recent strike, though details on the intended target are still unclear. A sprawling military base and nuclear facilities are outside Isfahan, and intelligence officials across the Middle East said there was strong evidence that the explosion had done some “significant structural damage.” “We have seen enough evidence to know something has happened, but we are unclear on what at this point,” said one Western diplomat whose work includes the region, speaking only on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. “There are a number of parties interested in sabotaging and weakening the Iranian regime.” The second such incident in as many weeks cast doubt on Iranian claims that these were “accidents” and “coincidences,” and it set off speculation of a coordinated attack by Israel, whose officials long have threatened a strike against Iran’s nuclear program. Israeli officials denied direct involvement, but the growing number of mysterious or unexplained blasts and deaths has many suspecting an official program of sabotage. Israeli newspapers declared last week that Israel’s war with Iran already had begun, but that the Jewish state, rather than launch massive airstrikes, had decided on a method of covert action in cooperation with other groups. Statements by current and former Israeli officials were being parsed for clues but did little to clarify the issue. “There aren’t many coincidences, and when there are so many events there is probably some sort of guiding hand, though perhaps it’s the hand of God,” said Israel’s former head of internal security, Maj. Gen. Giora Eiland.

Big targets? The sites in Iran that have been damaged would appear to be significant targets. The nuclear facilities in Isfahan are involved in converting yellowcake into uranium hexafluoride gas, a key step in producing enriched uranium. Two weeks ago, an explosion at a missile base west of Tehran killed more than 20 members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, including Cmdr. Hassan Moghaddam, described as the architect of Iran’s missile program. These, experts note, are only the most recent cases; a half-dozen other mysterious explosions and accidental deaths have been reported over the last two years. They include an October 2010 explosion at a military base housing Shahab-3 missiles near the city of Khorramabad and the July 2011 assassination of nuclear scientist Dariush Rezaei in Tehran. Stuxnet, a computer virus that wreaked havoc on the centrifuges in Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities, has rewritten the playbook for international cyber-terrorism. Experts say the incidents have set back Iran’s nuclear ambitions while allowing the country’s foes to deny involvement. “On the one hand, you have Iran’s nuclear weapons program slowed down. On the other hand, you don’t have to take responsibility for doing anything, and Iran will continue to deny them and call them accidents,” said one Western intelligence official, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly on the issue. He added that the method “served both parties for the time being” but that it could “only continue for so long.”

Peruvian anti-riot police officers stand in front of demonstrators shouting slogans against the government this weekend in Cajamarca, Peru.

W  B Peru moves to quell Assange to continue protests over mine extradition fight LIMA, Peru — Digging in his heels against opponents of a huge gold and copper mining project, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala declared a 60-day state of emergency and called on residents to maintain “serenity and calm.” Humala, a left-leaning former army officer who took office in July largely on the strength of support from poor voters, reacted to a continuing stalemate between the central government and impoverished groups in the Cajamarca region of northern Peru. Many residents fear the Conga project could ruin their water supply.

LONDON — Julian Assange, founder of the whistleblowing WikiLeaks website, is free to ask Britain’s highest court to decide whether he should be extradited to Sweden on allegations of sexual assault, judges ruled Monday. A lower court said that Assange could apply directly to Britain’s Supreme Court to hear his controversial case. The 40-year-old Australian has been battling extradition to Stockholm, the Swedish capital, since a judge ruled in February that he should be sent there to face accusations of raping and molesting two women.

Pakistan PM sees progress with U.S.

Seoul to resume sending aid north

LAHORE, Pakistan — In an overture to Washington, Pakistan’s prime minister said Monday his country wants to repair U.S. relations pushed close to rupture since NATO airstrikes on the Afghan border killed 24 Pakistani troops last month. Yousuf Raza Gilani’s interview with The Associated Press was the strongest indication yet that Islamabad realizes Pakistan needs an alliance with Washington even as it continues retaliating for the Nov. 26 raid by blocking NATO and U.S. supplies from traveling over its soil into landlocked Afghanistan.

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Monday that it would resume sending aid to the North through UNICEF, the United Nations children’s agency, which it had halted more than a year ago amid tensions over the sinking of a South Korean warship. The Unification Ministry, a government agency in charge of relations with North Korea, said that it would send $5.7 million through UNICEF programs for medicines, vaccines and nutrients for malnourished North Korean children. — From wire reports

Task force: BP spill fines should go to restoration New York Times News Service A Gulf Coast task force appointed by President Barack Obama recommended Monday that a “significant portion” of the billions of dollars in fines that BP is expected to pay for last year’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill go to ecological restoration. Issuing its final recommendations, the federal-state task force said that a permanent panel should be created to champion and coordinate actions like limiting excess nutrients flowing into the Gulf of Mexico from farm states along the Mississippi. It recommended that river engineers put freshwater and sediment flows on an equal footing with issues like

flood control. The recommendations of the task force, which was created by Obama in the aftermath of the oil-well blowout in 2010, were similar to those in a draft report it issued in October and are not binding. Under federal law, any civil penalties paid by BP under the Clean Water Act are to go to an oil spill liability trust fund with limited capacity to do restoration. Legislation being considered in Congress would allocate at least 80 percent of the possible Clean Water penalties to gulf restoration but would define restoration efforts in the broadest terms.

MADISON, Wis. — As states and cities struggle to resolve paralyzing budget shortfalls by sending workers on unpaid furloughs, freezing salaries and extracting larger contributions for health benefits and pensions, a growing number of public-sector workers are finding fewer reasons to stay. In part, the flood of retirements reflects a broader demographic picture. Baby boomers, wherever they work, have begun reaching the traditional retirement age. But increasingly workers fear a permanent shift away from the traditional security of government jobs, and they are making plans to get out now, before salaries and retirement benefits retreat further. “You start to feel like, ‘What will they do next?’” said Bob McLinn, 63, a labor union president who left his job with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections in March, earlier than he planned.

In some places, the rise in retirement has brought welcome and needed financial news. Kansas announced last month that it would save $34.5 million over two years because more than 1,000 workers had agreed to accept cash and health insurance incentives to leave. But some experts and workers question the ultimate result of so much leaving, saying it is already leaving some governments short-staffed and at risk of losing long-held institutional knowledge and technical expertise as older workers vanish. In 2009, a survey of more than 400 state and local governments found that about 85 percent of public workers were postponing retirement, while fewer than 9 percent were accelerating their retirement dates. This year, a similar survey by the Center for State and Local Government Excellence, a nonprofit research group, found 40 percent delaying their retirements, with nearly a quarter speeding up their retirement dates.

High court to decide if Cheney heckler can sue The Washington Post WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court agreed Monday to decide whether a Colorado man who touched and berated then-Vice President Dick Cheney can sue the Secret Service for arresting him. An appeals court said Steven Howards of Golden, Colo., could proceed with his suit that his arrest violated his free speech rights. The incident occurred during a chance encounter with Cheney at a Beaver Creek, Colo., shopping center in 2006. Howards told Cheney that the administration’s policies in Iraq were “disgusting,” to which Cheney said, “Thank you.” Howards then touched Cheney’s shoulder with his open hand, which he later denied when Secret Service agent Virgil “Gus” Reichle confronted him. Reichle and fellow agent Dan Doyle said the arrest was warranted because Doyle had overheard Howards on his cellphone saying he intended to ask Cheney “how many kids he’s killed today” and because he had lied about touching Cheney. Howards was handcuffed and charged with harassment, but the charges were later dropped. The Supreme Court has already ruled that there cannot be suits for retaliatory prosecutions when there was probable cause to bring charges. The lower courts are split on whether such a rule should also apply to arrests.

China Continued from A1 IPv6 — Internet Protocol version 6 — offers advanced security and privacy options, but more important, many more IP addresses, whose supply on the present Internet (IPv4) is almost exhausted. “China must move to IPv6,” Wu said. “In the U.S., some people don’t believe it’s urgent, but we believe it’s urgent.” Many experts in the U.S. say it could very well be. Because of the ready availability of low-cost labor, China has already become the world’s dominant maker of computers and consumer electronics products. Now, these experts say, its booming economy and growing technological infrastructure may thrust it to the forefront of the next generation of computing. For China, the quest to develop advanced computing centers is not simply a matter of national pride. It is an attempt to lay the groundwork for innovative Chinese companies and to reshape the technological landscape by doing something more than assembling the world’s desktop PCs. Never mind that there may be no Chinese Steve Jobs, said Clyde V. Prestowitz Jr., president of the Economic Strategy Institute. “There are different kinds of innovation,” he said. “We tend to equate innovation with companies that start from garages based on brainstorms. “There is another kind of innovation that results in constant improvement that we are not good at — and they are.” The view is not universal. Still, other experts say it would be a mistake to underestimate China’s capacity for rapid progress. “When I went to China for the first time in 1978, I saw workers stringing together computer memories with sewing needles,” said Patrick J. McGovern, the founder of the International Data Group, an early investor in Tencent Holdings, one of the most successful Chinese Internet companies. “Now innovation is accelerating, and in the future, patents on smartphones and tablets will be originated by the Chinese people.”

The china challenge Going back six decades — to ENIAC, considered to be the first electronic computer — the U.S. has set both the pace and the path of modern computing and communication. From mainframes to iPhones, from the ARPANET to WiFi, innovation has been as American as

Mental health Continued from A1 Local officials and Telecare’s regional administrator, Jay Harris, said they believed last year that they would not need to place any patients with criminal histories at the two homes. But state mental health employees later said that such a promise would violate the federal Fair Housing Act. While residents continue to have many of the same concerns they had a year ago, the idea that the homes would be a magnet for police activity and criminal behavior has been largely unfounded. According to Bend Police Lt. Chris Carney, there haven’t been any major incidents involving mentally ill residents at either of the Telecare facilities. Officers have been called to the facilities about 20 times since patients moved in, and none of the calls have led to arrests. Most of the calls — roughly a dozen — were to the 12th Street home. On two of the seven calls that involved the Edgecliff Circle home, police were checking on a neighbor who wrote in an email to Telecare’s corporate office that “Our anger will find, must find, a target.” Said Carney, “I haven’t seen anything to indicate any of the neighbors or anyone inside of the facilities have been at risk of being injured or hurt.” Carney attributes a recent uptick in the Edgecliff Circle neighbors’ concerns to the Oct. 16 incident and another one shortly thereafter in which a patient got lost and went to a neighbor’s door. Two incidents in one year is “minimal,” Carney said, although he added that people who live in the neighborhood might react differently. “In my opinion, people are always afraid of what they don’t understand,” Carney said.

A bank of monitors shows the Tianhe-1A supercomputer, which though made from U.S. processors, is still seen as evidence that the Chinese had achieved world-class computing designs.

Norman Rockwell. And for more than a generation, the hub of innovation has been Silicon Valley, a multicultural melting pot that has supported the singular amalgam of computer-hacker ethos and entrepreneurial aggressiveness that made it the envy of the world. Probably the most serious challenge to the Valley’s dominance came in the late 1980s from Japan, which seemed on the brink of taking command of the semiconductor and computer industries until its economy foundered. Today, China poses a very different kind of challenge. While Japan’s economy has long been driven by exports, China will soon have the world’s largest domestic market for both Internet commerce and computing. The world took notice of Chinese technological prowess in late 2010, when a Chinese supercomputer, the Tianhe-1A, briefly became the world’s fastest. Though it was made from U.S. processors and was soon surpassed by a Japanese machine, it was still indisputable evidence that the Chinese had achieved world-class computing designs.

Obstacles to dominance Last year, in an interview that would have been seen as extraordinary if the remarks had been made by a U.S. president, Premier Wen Jiabao committed China to creating an “Internet of things.” Connecting homes and smart power grids has been a driving principle behind the

“And not many people really understand mental illness until they work in (the mental health) profession.” Harris, of Telecare, said the types of incidents that recently caused concerns for some neighbors are not unique to patients living at the two homes. For example, Harris said a neighbor called him on the last weekend of November to report that a man was in another neighbor’s backyard, peering into the home. “She called the police wondering if it was one of our patients,” Harris said. He was not.

Neighbors’ views differ The most vocal neighbors live on or near Edgecliff Circle. On Monday, three of them said their top concerns are traffic, the possibility that patients have criminal histories, smoking and a general mistrust of Telecare and local and state officials. “It’s alarming to me when I have a group of four smokers walking back and forth in front of my home, when my kid wants to go out and play basketball,” said Sue Pierce, who lives near Edgecliff Circle. Another problem, said Nancy Gilbertson, is traffic generated by employees, mail carriers, therapists and others who provide activities for residents, such as guitar lessons. She says these people have blocked her driveway, knocked over her trash cans and driven onto her lawn. However, some neighbors of the 12th Street home say the facility hasn’t caused significant problems. “It hasn’t been like people thought,” said Danny Schulte, who lives across the street with his mother. “There haven’t been any disturbances. It’s been low-key.” Holly Jackson lives next door to the 12th Street Telecare home.While she hasn’t experi-

next-generation Internet in the U.S. And it goes hand in hand with “ubiquitous computing,” the idea that computing power transforms everyday devices like smartphones and digital music players. But China’s efforts at dominance are hardly without obstacles. The country has fallen far short on a decade-long commitment to build the world’s leading semiconductor industry, and it still imports a vast majority of microchips for the products it assembles. Its best chip factories are two to three generations behind world leaders like Intel, in the U.S., and TSMC, in Taiwan. China’s great weakness may prove to be too much government control. Chinese innovation may also be limited by the relative lack of intellectual property protection, discouraging entrepreneurs from breaking new ground. What scares competitors is that China has begun producing waves of amazing hardware engineers and software programmers, winning international competitions and beginning to dominate the best engineering programs in the U.S. The University of California, Berkeley, is about to announce a deal to create an engineering campus in Shanghai, raising fears about transferring technology from one of the best U.S. engineering schools. Much has been made of computer science “returnees,” most notably Andrew Chi-Chih Yao, who left Princeton to create an institute at Tsingtao University in Beijing that has already made breakthroughs in game

theory and computer security. “Overnight there is lots of activity coming from Beijing,” said Christos Papadimitriou, a computer scientist at Berkeley. And there is little question that the structure of Chinese industry is becoming more innovation-oriented. This summer Dieter Ernst, senior fellow at the East-West Center, testified before a congressional commission that the Chinese had overtaken South Korea and Europe in total patents and were catching up with the U.S. and Japan. At the same time, there is a consensus that China’s entrepreneurs have a workaholic culture that is unmatched anywhere in the world. “What I found in doing five startups in China is the culture makes Silicon Valley look laid-back and slow,” said Tom Melcher, an entrepreneur who left California a decade ago to move to Beijing. “In Beijing, if you want to find a chief executive at 7:30 p.m. on a Friday, it’s guaranteed you will find him at the office.” Not every China specialist buys such comparisons. “When we look at China through the lens of American decline, we see the Chinese ascendancy, we see the modern skylines and the fastest computers and the new airports, and we see an invincible force building,” said Orville Schell, director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at the Asia Society. “Through Chinese eyes it looks tremendously uncertain and provisional. They are not filled with self-confidence.”

enced any problems with her neighbors, she said there are some “inconveniences,” such as the extra car traffic, loitering and littering of cigarette butts. She also has two young children and sometimes worries about what the backgrounds of some of the patients. “They’re not like the kind of neighbors you chat with or have a barbecue with,” Jackson said. “But they’re good neighbors.” Barb Campbell, who also lives next door to a Telecare home, wrote in a letter to The Bulletin that she was initially optimistic the facility would not cause problems. She was disappointed, however, to find that vehicles came and went through the night, as employees changed shifts, and traffic increased even more during the day. But that problem has been overshadowed by residents smoking outside the home, “in front of my house, in front of the school, walking down the street in our neighborhood.”

that they would never place these patients in the two homes. Len Ray, adult mental health services administrator for the state, responded in an Oct. 28 email that the state cannot promise to place any mentally ill patients — including those with criminal records — in certain treatment homes and not in others. “That statement in and of itself goes against federal fair housing language,” Ray wrote. “The statement in essence says that a certain group of persons, because of their status of being under the jurisdiction of the (board), and who by law have the right to live in the community when so ordered by the (board), would be denied the right to live in these two houses.” The Fair Housing Act prevents discrimination against people when it comes to where they live. The state is also adopting a new policy that will prohibit smoking at state facilities, including the treatment homes and the backyards where some residents currently light up. The homes held a couple of practice smoking days, which failed, said Harris, because residents lit up in inappropriate places such as the corners of neighbors’ lawns. Telecare staff will now tell residents who smoke to walk to major streets such as Neff Road and Greenwood Avenue. Telecare will also offer a smoking cessation program and tobacco replacement products. “For us, it’s a health issue,” Harris said. The state is revisiting its criteria for siting residential treatment facilities such as these and plans to release a draft of the proposed new process this week.

Change in policy Local officials said two of the recent issues that worried neighbors — a change in the smoking policy at the homes and a reversal of earlier promises not to place patients with criminal histories there — were mostly out of their control because the changes were based on state and federal laws and policies. “When we opened the homes, it was our understanding they would not receive (state Psychiatric Security Review Board, or PSRB) referrals,” Harris said. “Shortly after the homes opened, the state communicated to us there could be PSRB referrals.” The state board has jurisdiction over patients found guilty except for insanity by the courts. Deschutes County recently asked state officials to agree

Few parents remember doctor saying child overweight, study says By Lauran Neergaard The Associated Press

... to a campaign using billboards and bus advertisements, with examples below. More images can be found on the foundation’s website, www.ffrf.org.

WASHINGTON — Pediatricians are supposed to track if youngsters are putting on too many pounds — but a new study found less than a quarter of parents of overweight children recall the doctor ever saying there was a problem. Does that mean doctors aren’t screening enough kids, or aren’t frank enough in these tough conversations? Or is the real story parent denial? The research published Monday can’t tell, but makes it clear the message too often isn’t getting through. “It’s tricky to say, and it’s tricky to hear,” says lead researcher Dr. Eliana Perrin of the University of North Carolina. She analyzed gov-

Black holes Continued from A1 The other black hole, a graveyard for the equivalent of 9.7 billion suns, more or less, lurks in the center of NGC 3842, a galaxy that anchors another cluster known as Abell 1367, 331 million light-years away in Leo. “These are the most massive reliably-measured black holes ever,” said Nicholas McConnell, a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, in an email, referring to the new observations. These results are more than just cool and recordsetting. Observations with the Hubble Space Telescope have shown that such monster black holes seem to inhabit the centers of all galaxies — the bigger the galaxy, the bigger the black hole. Researchers said that the new work could shed light on the role these black holes play in the formation and evolution of galaxies. The previous record-holder was in the galaxy M87, a member of the Virgo cluster some 54 million light-years from here, where a black hole weighed in at a mere 6.3 billion solar masses. The new black holes, however, were even larger than astronomers had predicted based on the earlier measurements, sug-

ernment health surveys that included nearly 5,000 parents of overweight children from 1999 to 2008. Parents tend not to realize when a weight problem is creeping up on their children. When almost a third of U.S. children are at least overweight, and about 17 percent are obese, it’s harder to notice that there’s anything unusual about their own families. Plus, children change as they grow older. The new study suggests when parents do recall a doctor noting the problem, it’s been going on for a while. About 30 percent of the parents of overweight 12- to 15-year-olds said a doctor had alerted them, compared with just 12 percent of the parents

gesting that there is something special about how the most massive galaxies are built. “Measurements of these massive black holes will help us understand how their host galaxies were assembled, and how the holes achieved such monstrous mass,” McConnell said. McConnell and his thesis adviser, Chung-Pei Ma, led a team of astronomers who used telescopes in Texas, Hawaii and outer space to weigh the black holes in the centers of galaxies by clocking the speeds of stars zooming around them; the faster the stars are going, the more gravity — and thus mass — is needed to keep the stars from flying away. They report their work in the journal Nature, which will be published online Wednesday. Martin Rees, a cosmologist at Cambridge University, called the new work “an incremental step,” noting that the study of these monsters has been a part of his life for a long time. “It’s good to learn about even bigger ones,” he said. Black holes, regions of space where gravity is so intense that not even light can escape from it, are among the weirdest of the predictions of Albert Einstein’s curvedspace theory of gravity — general relativity — so weird that Einstein himself did not

of overweight preschoolers. Even among the parents of very obese children, only 58 percent recalled a doctor discussing it, says the report published Monday by the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. “Many pediatricians don’t worry until children are very overweight, or until they’re much older,” says Perrin, whose team has created stoplight-colored growth charts to help doctors explain when a problem’s brewing. “If we can notice a concerning trend early, we’re more likely to be able to do something about it.” That means taking a family approach, says Dr. Nazrat Mirza, medical director of an obesity clinic at Children’s National Medical Center

believe it. He once wrote to a friend that there ought to be a law of nature forbidding such a thing. But he was wrong. And some of his successors, like Rees and a colleague at Cambridge, Stephen Hawking, have spent their careers studying the implications for physics of objects that can wrap spacetime around themselves like a magician’s cloak and disappear. Such is the fate, astronomers agree, of some massive stars once they run out of fuel and collapse upon themselves. Indeed the galaxy is littered with stellar-mass black holes detectable by the X-rays spit by doomed matter swirling around them like water in a drain. And there seem to be giant ones in the heart of every galaxy. One question astronomers would like answered is how these black holes got so big, billions of times bigger than a typical dead star. Ma described it as a kind of nature-versusnurture argument, explaining that black holes could grow by merging with other black holes as galaxies merge to get bigger — “nature” — or by swallowing gas around them — “nurture.”

Prineville Continued from A1 Gaylor’s group argued last year that the presence of a Nativity scene on city property violated the Constitution by showing preference for a particular religion. City officials responded by considering alternatives, including the creation of a “holiday zone” in a public plaza near City Hall that would house the Nativity scene and other holiday displays. After the Oregon American Civil Liberties Union objected to that proposal, the city decided to let private citizens set up a Nativity scene on publicly owned property rented for that purpose. The plaza, which is owned by the city and Crook County, is rented to local farmers to hold Saturday markets June through October. Bob Orlando, who rented the plaza for the month of December, pays the same rate — $5 per day — as those who run the Saturday market. This idea passed muster with the Oregon ACLU, whose spokesman, Dave Fidanque, called it an “excellent idea” as long as the space is rented out in a nondiscriminatory manner. Fidanque said that “the Constitution guarantees a right of expression,” though he was “sure there will be people upset (over a) Nativity display in a public park.” He was right. Gaylor on Monday argued that “you cannot allow a person to earmark the plaza for the month of De-

cember for the manger without it appearing to be a further entanglement.” City officials, she said, are “leaving themselves open to litigation and a lot of divisiveness.” If the plaza is to act appropriately as a public forum, she said, “it has to be legitimate. You have to have a policy, and it has to be content-neutral.” Gaylor questioned whether the governing bodies who own the plaza abide by a public-forum policy or have any regulations regarding how the space can be used. Prineville Mayor Betty Roppe said she did not think the city has a public forum policy. However, she said, the park and recreation district, which rents the space on behalf of the city and county, does so “on a first-come, firstserved basis.” She said the district’s permit policy sets rules for parking, litter and tobacco use, but does not specify or restrict the purpose for which the space can be used. “I see nothing in these four sheets of paper that would address that,” Roppe said of the policies in question. Gaylor says her group intends to find out, initially, what the city’s policies are governing the use of the plaza rented out for the Nativity scene. After that, she said, the group may try to put up its “winter solstice message” on the site, as it has in government-owned spaces elsewhere. The message states that God does not exist. — Reporter: 541-383-0376, dtaylor@bendbulletin.com

Where Buyers And Sellers Meet 1000’s Of Ads Every Day

Continued from A1 Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty said police believe that Hargrave used a Ruger .357 Magnum in the shooting. An autopsy is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. today, and Flaherty noted that toxicology results could take weeks. “There’s virtually no question whatsoever that the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest,” Flaherty said. “But we’ll be asking the medical examiner to look at a couple of other things.” Flaherty said police believe the father and son worked as caretakers on the property, and that the family had lived there for about four years. Calls to the property owner were not returned. A history of 911 calls to the Highland Road address

shows that before Sunday, police had been called to the property six times since December 2007, twice for medical issues. Police went to the house on Jan. 14, 2010, for a domestic dispute. Hargrave has no criminal record. His son was convicted twice for being a minor in possession in 2000 and 2001. Hargrave is currently being held without bail and will be represented by attorneys with Crabtree & Rahmsdorff Defense Services. Flaherty said Hargrave will be arraigned on a grand jury indictment on Friday. If Hargrave’s defense attorneys request a bail hearing, the prosecution must provide convincing evidence that Hargrave murdered his son and can therefore be held without bail. — Reporter: 541-617-7831, smiller@bendbulletin.com

in Washington. Important changes — such as switching to low-fat milk and water instead of sugary sodas and juice, or cutting back on fast food — should be viewed as making the whole family healthier, not depriving everyone because Johnny needs to lose weight. “You do not want to single out one individual in the family. That’s enough to cause a lot of friction,” says Mirza, who wasn’t involved with the new study. Doctors have long tracked children’s height and weight during yearly checkups, but more recent guidelines urge them to calculate a youngster’s body mass index, or BMI, to screen for developing obesity.

“It’s a bit like asking: Are taller children produced by taller parents or by eating a lot of spinach?” Ma wrote in an email. “For black holes we are not sure.” Astronomers also think the supermassive black holes in galaxies could be the missing link between the early universe and today. In the early days of the universe, quasars, thought to be powered by giant black holes in cataclysmic feeding frenzies, were fountaining energy into space. Where are those quasars now? The new work supports a growing suspicion that those formerly boisterous black holes are among us now, but, having stopped their boisterous growth, they are sleeping. McConnell said, “Our discovery of extremely massive black holes in the largest present-day galaxies suggests that these galaxies could be the ancient remains of voracious ancestors.” Let’s try not to awaken them.

IN BRIEF Prineville could annex land Crook County has asked Prineville to annex into the city 160 acres of county-owned land in which a tech company has expressed an interest. Tonight, the Prineville City Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the proposal, which involves land a mile away from Facebook’s data center. Bill Zelenka, Crook County’s planning director, filed a petition for the annexation last month on behalf of the county. Zelenka has said a company interested in buying and building on the land is “in the tech field,” according to The Bulletin’s archives. The company, which uses the code name Maverick, is one of three with code names that have shown a desire to buy tax lots near Prineville. The Oregonian newspaper, citing unnamed sources, identified Apple Inc. as Project Maverick and reported that the company has the opportunity to purchase the land until the end of the year. The city’s planning commission will give its recommendation to the Prineville City Council, which is scheduled to vote on the annexation next week, Zelenka said.

Express Scripts-Medco merger draws Senate antitrust scrutiny By Reed Abelson and Natasha Singer New York Times News Service

Express Scripts’ proposed $29 billion acquisition of Medco Health Solutions is expected to face intensified scrutiny today when a Senate panel examines potential antitrust concerns raised by the merger of two of the country’s largest

pharmacy benefit managers. Together, the two companies now manage prescription drug benefits for more than 115 million people and handle one of every three prescriptions filled in the United States. With combined revenue of more than $110 billion a year, the merged entity would also become the largest player in the domestic

markets for supplying mailorder drugs to patients with chronic conditions and costly specialty drugs for conditions like HIV, hemophilia and rheumatoid arthritis. Senior executives at the two companies say the merger will significantly reduce the nation’s health care costs and deliver drugs in a safer, more

efficient fashion. “A combined Express Scripts and Medco will be well positioned to protect American families from the rising cost of prescription medicines,” George Paz, the chief executive of Express Scripts, told legislators at a House subcommittee hearing in September. See Merger / B5

BP: Halliburton destroyed data BP on Monday accused Halliburton of destroying test results showing that the company used unstable cement to secure the Macondo well that blew out in the Gulf of Mexico last year. BP made the allegations in a legal filing at the U.S. District Court in New Orleans that is overseeing a class action lawsuit tied to the 2010 oil spill. In response, Halliburton spokeswoman Beverly Stafford said in a statement that the company is reviewing details of BP’s filing, but that “we believe that the conclusion that BP is asking the court to draw is without merit and we look forward to contesting their motion in court.”

• 2 Bend dads will hold a grand opening for a store devoted to a sport that’s catching on among Central Oregon youths By Robert Husseman The Bulletin

RIM fires execs for flight incident BlackBerry maker Research in Motion said Monday that it had fired two executives whose drunken belligerence forced a flight to China to return to Canada for their removal and arrest last week. “RIM does not condone behavior that conflicts with applicable laws and employees are expected to act, at all times, with integrity and respect,” the company said in a statement. — Staff and wire reports

acrosse brought together Bend residents Dick Dolan and Mark McKinley five years ago, when they were coaching their sons on a youth team. Dolan is a retired software developer who played lacrosse for the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass.; McKinley, a native of Texas, is a real estate developer and entrepreneur with no prior background in the sport. The two have now joined forces to start the Bend Lax Shack, using the common

abbreviation for lacrosse. The store will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday. Dolan and McKinley say the Bend Lax Shack is the only brick-and-mortar sporting goods store devoted exclusively to lacrosse in Central Oregon, and one of a handful of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. U.S. Lacrosse, the sport’s national governing body, considers lacrosse to be one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. The organization counted 624,593 lacrosse players in the country in a 2010 participation survey, up from 253,931 players

Hollywood’s action heroes may thrill audiences with welltimed leaps from crash-bound cars, but trying such a stunt in the real world is bound to be painful. In fact, federal statistics make it clear that exiting a vehicle in the course of an accident almost always leads to serious injury — and is often fatal. A safety standard issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Jan. 13 is intended to prevent occupants from being ejected through the side windows in accidents. The final rule requires automakers to incorporate technology designed to protect both belted and unbelted passengers. In a news release, NHTSA said the newly mandated sys-

Curtain airbags, such as the ones in this 2012 Honda Civic, will get larger and stronger to meet federal safety rules intended to keep occupants inside vehicles during a rollover.

tem “prevents the equivalent of an unbelted adult from moving more than four inches past the

side window opening in the event of a crash.” According to NHTSA studies, more than half

of those who died in ejection incidents were unbelted. The agency says in 2001-07 more than 10,000 deaths resulted from rollovers. According to its Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 47 percent of vehicle occupants killed in 2000-09 rollover accidents were fully ejected. NHTSA estimates that the safety technology will cost $31 per vehicle and predicts that it will save 373 lives and prevent 476 serious injuries annually. The new rule will be phased in over several years. Largevolume automakers will have to install ejection-mitigation provisions in 25 percent of their vehicles starting in September 2013, with percent compliance required by September 2017.

A strange film finds a global cast of financial backers By Nicholas Kulish and Michael Cieply New York Times News Service

POTSDAM, Germany — The German craftsmen on Stage 15 in the Babelsberg studio were hard at work on a recent afternoon building a dystopian Korean slum, the thud of a nail gun and a whiff of sawdust in the air. Next door, Andy and Lana Wachowski, the U.S.-born team behind the “Matrix” movies, were filming black-clad storm troopers from an imagined future for their latest feature, “Cloud Atlas.” From its truly global parentage to its timebending story told by three directors using two separate production crews, the movie is unabashedly strange. The narrative, which starts near New Zealand and circles the globe, is bewildering in its complexity, featuring characters in six eras who might share a soul migrating through time. And the project’s primary backers are Asian. But “Cloud Atlas,” in all its glorious confusion, also serves as a guidepost to the future of the film business. Increasingly, sophisticated filmmakers who once relied on U.S. studios for backing are turning to a globe-straddling indie finance system for their most expensive projects. See Film / B2

In Ireland, austerity is praised but painful By Liz Alderman New York Times News Service

DUBLIN — As European leaders scramble to overcome the Continent’s debt crisis, many are pointing to Ireland as a model for how to get out of the troubles. Having embraced severe belt-tightening to mend its tattered finances, Ireland is showing glimmers of a turnaround. A year after it received a 67.5 billion euro bailout, modest growth has returned and the budget deficit is shrinking. But the effects of austerity have pummeled Ireland’s fragile economy, leaving scars that are likely to take years to heal. Nearly 40,000 Irish have fled the country this year alone in search of a brighter future elsewhere; the trend is expected to continue. “This is still an insolvent economy,” said Constantin Gurdgiev, an economist and lecturer at Trinity College in Dublin. “Just because we’re playing a good-boy role and not making noises like the Greeks doesn’t mean Ireland is healthy.” See Ireland / B5

Film Continued from B1 “Cloud Atlas,� with its $100 million budget and high-wattage cast, including the Academy Award winners Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, was an epic independent film too complicated, too expensive and perhaps too risky for any conventional studio to have backed. To move forward, the project broke free of national boundaries. Investors from China, Korea, Singapore and beyond contributed roughly $35 million, without which the film could not have been made. German subsidies account for $18 million more. In the United States, “Cloud Atlas� will be distributed, probably next fall, by Warner Brothers, which has made only a modest investment to date.

A new blueprint In many ways, the producers are drawing a blueprint for a new era of genuinely international filmmaking. “We were just looking for a way to get it done,� said Grant Hill, one of the “Cloud Atlas� producers, “but I think there’s the basis for a model there.� He called the final push for financing an “exotic mixture� of deals, adding, “What a studio would have had to pay would have made it impossible.� The change has been coming for several years. In 2010, the international box office was up 30 percent over five years, twice the growth in domestic sales. And foreign sales accounted for roughly 70 percent of total receipts, both for the industry at large and for some of the biggest U.S. studio productions like “Avatar.� Meanwhile, the Oscar for best picture, for three consecutive years, has gone to films — “Slumdog Millionaire,� “The Hurt Locker� and “The King’s Speech� — that used globespanning financial networks to create pictures aimed at global audiences.

will simply make a stop on U.S. theater screens as they travel around the world.

Behind the scenes A peek at the back lot for “Cloud Atlas� testifies to the need for a budget that defies the term “indie.� Behind the yellow shipping containers that are part of the futuristic Korean set is a fine 19th-century sitting room with a rose-lined garden path outside the front door. The interior of an old tall ship shares the soundstage with the exterior of a space-age hovercraft and Styrofoam boulders. The performers, meanwhile, shift between jarringly different roles. “The biggest change for me as an actor is to have two different film units and two different film crews and to go between the two from one day to the next,� Berry said in a phone conversation. She described playing “a Jewish woman in the 1930s� for the third director, Tom Tykwer, then becoming “an old tribal woman� for the Wachowski siblings the next day, and losing track of fellow cast members amid the layers of makeup and costumes. “Some days I go into the trailer, I’ll be having a conversation — I won’t even know it’s with Hugh Grant until five minutes in,� Berry said. The gestation of “Cloud Atlas� is a winding tale of emerging markets and perseverance that breathed life into an unlikely project, which, if successful, will provoke still more change in the business of filmmaking. In 2005, while on the London set of “V for Vendetta,� the actress Natalie Portman gave a copy of “Cloud Atlas� to Lana Wachowski (formerly Larry), who became intrigued with the novel’s six obliquely connected stories. A year later, Lana and her brother Andy surfaced with a screenplay. Tykwer, a friend of the Wachowskis — the directors declined interview requests — joined in writing the numer-

ous drafts of the script, which were shared with the book’s English author, David Mitchell. “After two years of hard work, we were still about 30 percent short� of the necessary money, Hill said. “At that point you go home unless you can come up with something new, not part of the traditional model.� Rather than giving up, the producers translated the screenplay into more than half a dozen Asian languages and found that the film’s treatment of reincarnation resonated with potential investors in the East. The idea of shooting on parallel tracks, with the Wachowskis directing one unit and Tykwer the other, grew from a realization that the stars were more likely to work for a steep discount if the shoot could be finished in half the time. Actors also play different roles in different time periods, keeping them busy and, on certain days, turning stars into extras. “It’s sort of like guerrilla filmmaking in a way,� Berry said. “Even though there seems like there’s a lot of money, it’s not opulent. All the money’s going into the screen.�

Risky business Still, such an unusual project presents hurdles in capturing a mainstream audience. The Wachowskis brought in about $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office for Warner Brothers with the Matrix series. But their “Speed Racer,� also for Warner, was a highbudget flop in 2008. This time out, Warner agreed to distribute the film in the United States but was not a large contributor to its production budget. “To have taken the whole movie, given the expense, would have been a very risky proposition for us,� said Warner’s top film executive, Jeff Robinov. Whether it was smart business to jump in only part way, Robinov said, “I can’t tell you until we’ve seen more, that’s just the truth.�

T F Facebook acquires company’s talent, but not its app By Jeremy C. Owens San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Facebook announced Monday that it has hired the team behind the locationsharing service Gowalla, but will not acquire nor integrate the current service offered by the Austin, Texas-based company. Gowalla co-founders Josh Williams and Scott Raymond, along with other Gowalla workers, will join the Palo Alto, Calif.-based social network’s design and engineering teams in January, according to a Facebook statement. Neither company announced any price Facebook paid in the deal. “While Facebook isn’t acquiring the Gowalla service or technology, we’re sure that the inspiration behind Gowalla will make its way into Facebook over time,” a Facebook spokesman said in an email. The move follows a developing pattern for Facebook and other Silicon Valley technology companies to acquire other companies strictly for their personnel. For instance, in August, Facebook acquired Push Pop Press, which created imaginatively interactive e-books. Like the Gowalla purchase, Facebook at the time said that “the ideas and technology behind Push Pop Press will be integrated with Facebook.” Facebook announced last week that it is opening an engineering office in New York after opening a similar office in Seattle in 2010, part of the company’s effort to expand its search for top-notch talent.

With upgrade, Xbox Live challenges the cable box • Slick interface aims to create a better TV browsing experience By Nick Wingfield and Brian Stelter New York Times News Service

The old-fashioned cable television set-top box — long the hub of living-room entertainment for most people — is about to become less relevant. Beginning today and continuing through the month, Microsoft will give a face-lift to its Xbox Live online entertainment service that will allow subscribers to watch a wide array of mainstream television programming from the Xbox 360 console. In addition, rather than fumbling with traditional remote controls and the primitive program guides of cable boxes, Xbox Live users will be able to search for shows using voice commands and hand gestures, if they also have the popular Kinect peripheral for the Xbox. This month, Microsoft will begin adding dozens of other sources of programming to the service, including Verizon FiOS, Comcast’s Xfinity and HBO. Starting today, the few online video services that have been on Xbox Live for some time, including Netflix and Hulu Plus, will be able to be retrieved using voice searching and other methods. Microsoft’s deal with cable and content providers stops short of making it possible for people to ditch their traditional pay-television packages; people will still need to pay the cable providers to get channels through the Xbox. They will also have to pay the roughly $60 a year Microsoft typically charges for a premier membership to Xbox Live.

New York Times News Service

A Bing search delivers results from multiple services in the new Xbox 360 interface.

And the Xbox won’t be a true substitute for everything viewers can get through their cable boxes because content rights will have to be negotiated for some shows before they can be watched through the console.

21st-century TV But the agreement is nonetheless significant because there are more than 35 million worldwide subscribers to Xbox Live, making the Xbox one of the most common Internet-connected boxes in living rooms. And it is part of a growing effort by media companies to bring some 21st-century pizzazz to the experience of navigating and watching television, a medium that is largely watched using traditional remote controls and settop boxes that have changed little in the past 10 years. Most cable boxes require viewers to navigate through primitive on-screen program guides, pressing buttons on their remotes to scroll through the vast lists of shows. “The user experience through traditional cable settop boxes hasn’t kept pace with

the kind of user experience people get from all these other devices they use throughout the day,” Tom Rogers, chief executive of TiVo, said. With the update to the Xbox, all of the video available to users over the Xbox Live service from all of Microsoft’s media partners will be indexed, so people can search for programs using their voices and the company’s Bing search engine, instead of awkwardly tapping out search terms through remote controls. Mark Greenberg, chief executive of Epix, a company that streams films from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM, raved about the voice search and hand-gesture capabilities of the Xbox. Epix will stream a library of about 3,000 films through the Xbox. “Maybe it’s the beginning part of the process toward eliminating the set-top box,” Greenberg said, while adding that he did not expect the traditional box to go away completely.

Dated technology Cable executives have conflicting attitudes about the set-

Amazon bites into Apple’s market share By Jeremy C. Owens San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News

SAN JOSE, Calif. — In its first quarter of selling its own tablet computers, Amazon.com Inc. has become the second-biggest seller of the increasingly popular mobile devices by stealing market share from the still-dominant leader, Apple Inc., according to projections. Amazon will ship 3.9 million Kindle Fire tablets in the fourth quarter, according to analysis firm IHS, giving it 13.8 percent of the global tablet business. Cupertino, Calif.based Apple, which sells the popular iPad tablet, still controls 65.6 percent of the market, but that is down from 69.7 percent in the third quarter. “Nearly two years after Apple Inc. rolled out the iPad, a competitor has finally developed an alternative which looks like it might have enough of Apple’s secret sauce to succeed,” said Rhoda Alexander, the senior manager for tablet research at IHS. Amazon sells the Kindle Fire, a full-color tablet version of its popular Kindle e-reader, for $199 — much lower than the iPad, which starts at $499. The lower price and Amazon’s approach to the market have brought in “a brand-new set of media tablet buyers,” Alexander said.

top boxes. Many acknowledge that they seem outdated compared with other forms of consumer electronics, and realize that consumers have trouble using them, especially as more video becomes available. “It can be frustrating to consumers to be entitled to content and have difficulty finding it,” said Samuel Schwartz, an executive vice president of Comcast who oversees emerging Internet businesses. The Xbox, Greenberg said, “is an opportunity for the cable industry to experiment.” Executives would also love to get rid of the cost of buying and deploying the devices, even though their customers typically pay an extra monthly fee to lease the boxes. Among the most vocal about getting out of the set-top-box business is Glenn Britt, chief executive of Time Warner Cable, the country’s second-biggest cable company. “We’d rather not be in the set-top box business, believe me,” Britt said in an interview this year, calling the boxes cumbersome. “A world without them is a much better consumer experience.”

A quest for software that listens for lies By Anne Eisenberg New York Times News Service

She looks as innocuous as Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s famous detective. But also like Miss Marple, Julia Hirschberg, a professor of computer science at Columbia University, may spell trouble for a lot of liars. That’s because Hirschberg is teaching computers how to spot deception — programming them to parse people’s speech for patterns that gauge whether they are being honest. For this sort of lie detection, there’s no need to strap anyone into a machine. The person’s speech provides all the cues — loudness, changes in pitch, pauses between words, ums and ahs, nervous laughs and dozens of other tiny signs that can suggest a lie. Hirschberg is not the only researcher using algorithms to trawl our utterances for evidence of our inner lives.

A small band of linguists, engineers and computer scientists, among others, are busy training computers to recognize hallmarks of what they call emotional speech — talk that reflects deception, anger, friendliness and even flirtation. Programs that succeed at spotting these submerged emotions may someday have many practical uses: software that suggests when chief executives at public conferences may be straying from the truth; programs at call centers that alert operators to irate customers on the line; or software at computerized matchmaking services that adds descriptives like “friendly” to usual ones like “single” and “female.” The technology is becoming more accurate as labs share new building blocks, said Dan Jurafsky, a professor at Stanford whose research focuses on the understanding of language by both machines and

humans. Recently, Jurafsky has been studying the language that people use in fourminute speed-dating sessions, analyzing it for qualities like friendliness and flirtatiousness. He is a winner of a MacArthur Foundation fellowship commonly called a “genius” award, and a co-author of the textbook “Speech and Language Processing.” “The scientific goal is to understand how our emotions are reflected in our speech,” Jurafsky said. “The engineering goal is to build better systems that understand these emotions.” The programs these researchers are developing aren’t likely to be used as evidence in a court of law. After all, even the use of polygraphs is highly contentious. But the new programs are already doing better than people at some kinds of mind-reading. Algorithms developed by Hirschberg and colleagues

have been able to spot a liar 70 percent of the time in test situations, while people confronted with the same evidence had only 57 percent accuracy, Hirschberg said. Shrikanth Narayanan, an engineering professor at the University of Southern California who also uses computer methods to analyze emotional speech, notes that some aspects of irate language are easy to spot. In marital counseling arguments, for instance, the word “you” is a lot more common than “I” when spouses blame each other for problems. But homing in on the finer signs of emotions is tougher. “We are constantly trying to calculate pitch very accurately” to capture minute variations, he said. His mathematical techniques use hundreds of cues from pitch, timing and intensity to distinguish between patterns of angry and non-angry speech.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

Lacrosse Continued from B1 The following year, more than 200 boys and girls participated on parks and recreation lacrosse teams. The district continues to offer lacrosse for boys and girls ages 6-14. Bend, Mountain View, Summit, Redmond and Sisters high schools all have boys’ club lacrosse teams. The Bend United girls’ club lacrosse team draws participants from area high schools. Dolan and McKinley plan to sponsor a traveling boys’ team and organize a tournament in Bend, scheduled to launch in summer 2012. Bend Lax Shack also plans to offer clinics for aspiring coaches and referees.

We took that team to various tournaments. The shop really came out of the coaching. McKinley: I caught him on a weak moment. (He laughs.) Usually people do retail when (they’re) young. We’re doing it when we’re old. Dolan: We see it as more than selling sticks and gloves. We’re trying to grow the game. It remains to be seen whether the market is big enough to support this. We hope to treat (players and coaches) right and be a big part of the community. Lacrosse is a sport heavy Q: in equipment, from sticks and balls to protective gear and padding. Does the cost of equipment represent a barrier to entry? Dolan: There’s lowerpriced equipment. We have gloves that cost $200 and gloves that cost $40. I hope kids don’t get priced out of it. I know that boys go nuts over gear.

What was the impetus Q: for opening up a la- A: crosse-specific store? Dolan: Mark and I A: coached together at St. Francis (School) five years ago.

Ireland Continued from B1 The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, recently praised the Irish prime minister, Enda Kenny, for setting an “outstanding example,” while the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, declared that Ireland was already “almost out of the crisis.” Underneath the surface, however, the grinding reality of Irish life belies those glowing commendations. Salaries of nurses, professors and other public-sector workers have been cut around 20 percent. A range of taxes, including on housing and water, have increased. Investment in public works is virtually moribund. On Monday and today, Kenny’s government is announcing an additional 3.8 billion euros in tax increases and spending cuts for 2012 that will hit health care, social protections and child benefits. Retail sales fell 3.8 percent in October from a year earlier as spending was down even on things like school textbooks, shoes and other basic goods. At a Spar convenience store

in the center of Dublin, Samantha O’Donnell, a mother of two, filled her shopping basket with some necessities, then put a few back on the shelf. “A lot of people are just trying to get by week to week,” said O’Donnell, who said her salary as a nursing assistant had been cut. To Sean Kay, a professor of politics at Ohio Wesleyan University and the author of a recent book examining Ireland’s crisis, O’Donnell’s experience is typical. “The Irish are being praised for doing what they were asked to do, which is important for bringing investors back to the country,” he said. “But for the Irish people, it’s not paying off.”

Making progress There are signs of improvement. Compared with the previous year, exports are up 5.4 percent for the first nine months of 2011, fueled by gains from Pfizer, Intel, SAP and other multinational companies that were drawn to Ireland in the 1990s and 2000s by its low taxes, a well-educated Englishspeaking workforce and access to the European market.

There’s moderately priced equipment that’s perfectly safe for boys to play with. A kid could go through his career with a $40 stick.

You’ve got A: cause it’s a spring sport. kids on select teams that are Some girls are coming over top football players, kids coming over from basketball. McKinley: The kids like it because their parents don’t know the rules. Dolan: It’s more of a hustle sport than a skill sport. A good athlete becomes a good lacrosse player, but a kid who wants to can make himself good. It’s inclusive rather than exclusive. McKinley: It’s the culture. The kids all play with each other in certain leagues and camps.

from soccer. It’s new, it’s cool — you look at TV shows and there’s a lacrosse stick in the corner of the room. McKinley: The girls smile and laugh a little bit more (playing the sport). Dolan: The girls’ game is a distinct and separate sport. It’s developed its own culture and rules. They use different equipment, different rules than (the boys’ game).

panies like LinkedIn and Facebook have recently arrived. Prospects for local technology companies are improving, too. Brian Farrell founded Tethras with a partner three years ago to develop mobile applications for smartphones. He now has 16 employees and hopes to double his workforce in the next 18 months. “Every time you turn the radio on, companies in IT are hiring,” Farrell said, referring to information technology. Gross domestic product grew 1.2 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, compared with a decline of 0.4 percent for all of 2010 and 7 percent in 2009. The interest rates that Ireland would pay its international creditors if it were not on a financial lifeline have also fallen, to 8.7 percent today from 14 percent in August, in part because investors hope European policymakers will resolve the broader debt crisis. But that is still above the level that led Ireland to seek a bailout and too high to allow for sustainable finances. The budget deficit has fallen to around 10 percent of gross domestic product this year

from a staggering 32 percent in 2010. But even under the best circumstances, it will not reach the Europe-wide target of 3 percent until 2015.

Out-migration Joblessness would be much higher, economists say, if not for the rising tide of Irish people leaving for Australia, Britain and Canada as opportunities at home stagnate. Thousands of students and construction workers left this country of 4.5 million people after the economy slid into recession in 2008, most of them expecting to be away temporarily. But now, accountants, engineers, dentists and other highskilled professionals are moving with their families. Deirdre Cronin, 29, an accountant in Cork, plans to move in the new year with her husband and two young children to Australia, which has become a mecca for tens of thousands of Irish seeking a brighter future. “We feel we would never be able to give our children an opportunity” in Ireland, she said. “We’re going to work hard out there, and earn a decent living.”

Continued from B1 Smaller makers will not have to meet the phase-in schedule, but they must reach the 100 percent level in 2017. Convertibles and police vehicles are exempt, as are taxis and limousines with security partitions. Along with the rule, NHTSA developed test procedures to verify the effectiveness of the systems. The test requires that a linear impactor — a device shaped like a human head and attached to a shaft — be fired at the window area in several specific locations and at a designated speed. To pass, the system must prevent the impactor from traveling more than a limited distance beyond the plane of the window — a stipulation that might necessitate tethers attached to the car to keep the air bags in place. The safety agency has also encouraged automakers to install stronger window glass.

Merger Continued from B1 But some lawmakers are concerned that the merger will harm competition, and the Federal Trade Commission has requested additional information from the companies before it decides whether to approve the combination. Today’s hearing is being held by the antitrust subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The same committee has taken a hard look at other mergers, like AT&T’s proposed acquisition of T-Mobile, that have the potential to reduce competition and lead to higher prices. Regulators are expected to focus on whether the merger of Medco and Express Scripts, which would reduce the number of major competitors to two from three, would also leave customers, particularly large employers, with too few choices and limited bargaining power.

It is worth noting that NHTSA uses the term “ejection mitigation,” an acknowledgment that there is no practical way to provide total protection. In the vernacular of safety, there are few absolutes. In contrast to earlier safety standards, the government is not leaving it up to automakers to determine which technology is used to meet the standard. Rather, it is requiring carmakers to develop side-curtain air bags that, when deployed, will cover the full opening of each side window adjacent to the first three rows of seats and a portion of any windows in a cargo area. Steve Cassatta, a senior staff engineer at General Motors, said in a telephone interview that rollover-capable side-curtain air bags were part of GM’s strategy before the new rules went into effect. “From a technology standpoint, it isn’t inconsistent with our approach,” he said.

While the two pharmacy benefit managers say they face aggressive competition from other managers for their business, a recent analysis by Morgan Stanley Research indicated that the 50 largest companies in the United States rely heavily on the services of Medco, Express Scripts and the third major benefit manager, CVS Caremark. The smaller players typically do not have the geographic reach, bargaining power or data-handling capabilities of their larger competitors, said Dan Gustafson, an antitrust lawyer who recently helped write a letter to the FTC objecting to the merger on behalf of the American Antitrust Institute, a Washington organization. “These are customers who require a broad spectrum of services on a national level,” he said.

Sisters water rate hike debate ongoing By Erik Hidle T he B ulletin

Officials in Sisters have set a permanent water rate, but the debate about how much water should cost continues. For almost two years, the Sisters City Council has discussed the need for watersystem upgrades and deliberated about rates. In April, councilors approved a 4 percent water rate hike and a roughly 33 percent reduction in the “base allowance� of water — the volume residents may use every month without paying extra. The typical ratepayer will continue to be charged $20.59 for the first 1,000 cubic feet of water every month. For every 100 cubic feet used beyond that, users will pay $1.

Pick your colors carefully Decorate your frame like you would paint a living space By Pete Erickson The Bulletin

When the photo editor told me someone had thought up the “Well, shoot!� theme of “color palette,� I was a bit lost. The idea was a little over the head of a simple photographer like me. Then it came to me: Think of painting a room as a metaphor for choosing a palette for your photographs. A couple of years ago, I moved into a San Francisco apartment painted eye-wrenching pink. Being from San Francisco, I have a pile of photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, and I picked its colors to use in repainting the room. When taking pictures, I often see a color theme and try to use it to limit the composition. Fifty wild colors in a picture most likely won’t work as well as just two or three. Think of the amazing picture of the Afghan girl taken by the great photographer Steve McCurry and featured on the cover of National Geographic. The entire picture is green, red and tan. On a color wheel, green/ red and yellow/blue are opposites. These colors will usually go together extremely well. Her green eyes and green shirt under her torn scarf match the background green, while the red scarf provides the opposing color framing her face. It’s a great example of using color to create a picture. I haven’t been to Afghanistan lately, so I chose pictures from road trips and portraits that use simple color themes for this installment of “Well, shoot!� My version of using the same color palette as McCurry is a picture of comedian Morgan Preston acting like he’s writing on the red brick wall in Gasoline Alley, at right. It has similar colors as the photo of the Afghan girl, but is almost opposite in feel. Color provides an idea for the picture and can emphasize the subject, but it also can be used in an infinite number of combinations. For next week’s “Well shot!,� pick a color and make it your assignment to photograph that color in as many ways and in as many combinations with other colors as possible. You might be surprised at what you’re able to accomplish.

Wind energy project proposed By Dylan J. Darling The Bulletin

A Chicago-based company has expressed interest in building a 500-megawatt wind power project east of Shaniko. E.ON Climate & Renewables North America is evaluating 85,000 acres of private land in Wasco and Sherman counties for the Brush Canyon wind power project, said Diana Enright, spokeswoman for the Oregon Department of Energy. However, she said, “it could be smaller.� Wind development companies typically start with a large general area for a project, then trim it as the plan evolves, Enright said. The Department of Energy plans to hold a public meeting about the project Thursday in Shaniko and will take comments until Dec. 15. See Wind / C2

LOCAL BRIEFING 8 protesters arrested in Bend Bend police arrested eight protesters who refused to leave U.S. Rep. Greg Walden’s downtown Bond Street office on Monday. Twelve protesters arrived at Walden’s office at 11:30 a.m. and told his staff that they would not leave until they had a meeting with the Republican congressman, who was not there at the time. It was part of a larger movement in which people planned to “Occupy Walden� and stage sit-ins at his offices throughout his 2nd Congressional District. The event was closely aligned with the Occupy Wall Street movement that has spurred protests across the country. According to police, Walden’s staff allowed the protesters to stay in the office until 6 p.m. even though it normally closes at 5 p.m. By 6:35 p.m., Bend police arrived and told nine protesters who refused to leave that they would be arrested if they stayed. One person voluntarily left and the other eight people were arrested and escorted by police out of the building. A Bend police news release said the protesters “agreed to peacefully leave the building.� The eight people were cited for second-degree criminal trespassing. They included Bend residents Foster Fell, 63; Ann Havill, 62; Emilie Marlinghaus, 64; Christopher Lawler, 22; Susan Parks, 59; and Frances Lamb, 73; Redmond resident Rebecca Ince, 27; and Powell Butte resident Barbara Fontaine, 58.

Brady appointed top county judge Judge Alta Brady has been appointed presiding judge for the Deschutes County Circuit Court, the county said Monday. Starting Jan. 1, Brady will assume administrative responsibility for the court and continue to hear civil, domestic and criminal matters. She will also preside over the Family Drug Court program. Brady will take over for Michael Sullivan, who has served as presiding judge since 2004. — Bulletin staff reports

BEYOND RIPE Marianne Horrell, of Bend, snapped a picture of two sprouts growing from a tomato with her Apple iPhone 4. “After being away for three weeks, I thought the family would eat the tomatoes I’d set out in the ... kitchen window, but the family and the tomatoes never met,” she said.

— Matt Tulis, spokesman, E.ON Climate and Renewables

Wind Continued from C1 The number of turbines and the exact amount of power output of the proposal have yet to be determined, Enright said. If the project is 500 megawatts, it would be one of the largest in the state. E.ON Climate and Rewables owns wind farms in America and Europe and has 3,000 megawatts of wind power in its portfolio, according to the company’s Web site. The largest of its 13 wind farms in America is a 781megawatt, 600-turbine project near Roscoe, Texas, said Matt Tulis, spokesman for the company. The wind farm creates enough power for more than 200,000 homes. He declined to discuss details of company’s plans for Brush Canyon. “At this point we are not ready to really talk about it just yet,” he said. While the company doesn’t have any wind farms in Oregon, Tulis said, “we definitely see potential out there.” Wind farms have proliferated along the Columbia River gorge over the last decade. Sherman County is home to some of the largest of these farms, with the four-phase Klondike project — totaling about 400 megawatts — and the three phases of Biglow Canyon, totaling about 450 megawatts, according to the Renewable Northwest Project. The Portland-based nonprofit group advocates for renewable power in the Northwest. Neighboring Wasco County has yet to have any wind development. The private land E.ON Climate and Renewables is eyeing for the Brush Canyon wind power project parallels U.S. Highway 97 near Shaniko and state Highway 218 near Antelope. The Oregon Natural Desert

O N Facebook hires Salem lobbyist in tax dispute

FEW REMAIN AT OCCUPY PORTLAND SITE

Bend lawyer files appeal in PERS lawsuit

By Mike Rogoway The Oregonian

Oregon legislators: Expect a lot of friend requests this winter. Facebook has hired a Salem lobbyist to take up its cause at the Legislature’s session this February, pressing to ensure the company doesn’t face additional taxes on its massive — and growing — Prineville data center. The company has an enterprise zone agreement with Crook County that exempts its 333,000-squarefoot data center, and the thousands of expensive computers inside, from local property taxes. That saved the company a little more than $1.7 million last year, and the savings figure to grow substantially as the Prineville facility doubles in size — the property was assessed as of January, four months before the data center began operating. The enterprise zone agreement was the key reason that Facebook picked Oregon for its first data center, but the company is concerned that other state taxes could undercut its property tax savings. So Facebook has hired Jim Green of the firm Harrang Long Gary Rudnick to represent it in the upcoming legislative session. “We want to be a part of the conversation with Oregon legislators and the Department of Revenue,” Facebook said in a statement to The Oregonian. “Among the issues we are paying attention to in Salem is the ongoing discussion about the integrity of enterprise zones in Oregon and the power of counties to make their own economic development decisions.” Facebook is concerned in particular about “central assessment” by Oregon tax officials, which the company fears could levy taxes based on the value of the company’s brand and other intangibles. The Department of Revenue says any taxes would be negligible, because Facebook has few operations in the state. But the company is evidently unconvinced, though its worries didn’t stop Facebook from beginning construction of a second large data center building in Prineville last fall — the company first raised tax issue with public officials last summer. The state’s position on taxes has also been a concern for Apple as it considers a large data center near Facebook’s Prineville facility, according to Central Oregon officials. The Oregonian reported over the weekend that Apple is close to a decision on whether to buy 160 acres in Crook County for a large data center. The Dalles (Google), Morrow County (Amazon and, coming soon, Rackspace) and Crook County (Facebook and, maybe soon, Apple) all have large data centers in enterprise zones. Roger Lee, director of Economic Development for Central Oregon, said as many as 18 other communities in the state are exploring the possibility in hopes of diversifying their economies. “We are trying to educate legislators on this,” Lee said. “This is a quick session and they’re going to have to have a good grasp of the issues before the session starts.” Data centers cost hundreds of millions — sometimes billions — of dollars to build. Lee said companies want the tax issues cleared up before committing to large investments in Oregon. “They want some clarity and certainty about these things,” he said.

SALEM

Several protesters stand next to a tent in Shemanski Park in Portland on Monday after police told them to take down tents or be kicked out. Authorities say they arrested a Portland teenager as they were warning protesters of the Occupy Portland movement about sleeping in the park. Police and park officers were at Shemanski Park on Monday morning and said they issued eight written warnings. The park in a downtown museum, theater and music district is

open from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. The police said 18-year-old Brian Matthew Burlingame wouldn’t give his name, was ordered out of the park, and resisted an attempt to detain him. After he was cuffed, the police said, he was booked on charges of trespass, failure to obey a park officer and offensive physical contact. On Saturday night, police arrested 19 demonstrators setting up structures in the South Park blocks.

300 witnesses shed little light on Ashland bike path killing The Associated Press Investigators have talked to some 300 people over the past three weeks without finding anyone to shed light on the near-decapitation of a grocery store clerk on a bike path in Ashland, police said Monday. Police Chief Terry Holderness said investigators would like to find and speak with three more people spotted on

surveillance video of the bike path around the time of the slaying of 23-year-old David Grubbs. Holderness said interviews with family, friends and associates of the victim have yet to turn up any kind of relationship or circumstance that could have brought on this kind of attack. “At this point, it is certainly looking more and more like

Worker impaled at Forest Grove plant FOREST GROVE — Firefighters say a door manufacturing plant worker has been airlifted to a hospital after a 2-foot-long piece of inch-wide wood pierced his abdomen. The unidentified 33-yearold man was transported to a Portland trauma center after he was injured Monday while operating equipment at Woodfold Manufacturing in Forest Grove. Forest Grove fire spokesman David Nemeyer says paramedics reported the piece of wood had broken off inside the man’s body and was close to puncturing his back. He was reported to be conscious and talking to firefighters. No report on his condition was immediately available Monday. Nemeyer says the man had been operating a straight line rip saw when the piece of wood came out of the machine and hit him.

Multiple fights at Salem penitentiary SALEM — Oregon officials say guards at the state penitentiary at Salem fired warning shots and used chemical spray to break up multiple fights involving about 50 inmates in the prison yard. Corrections Department spokeswoman Jeanine Hohn said two staffers and one inmate suffered minor injuries in the Monday afternoon fights. She says multiple inmates were taken to disciplinary segregation. Inmates who were not involved were being returned to their housing units. The prison has been placed on modified lockdown, with all activities and visits canceled. Oregon State Police have been notified and the fights are under investigation.

Coast Guard saves sailboat near Astoria ASTORIA — The Coast Guard rescued two people and prevented their 50-foot sailboat from sinking near the mouth of the Columbia River. The Coast Guard says it re-

sponded Sunday afternoon with a 47-foot motor lifeboat from Station Cape Disappointment. The crew helped pump out the boat and took it under tow, but it started sinking again. The Coast Guard helped pump it out again and sent a second 47-foot lifeboat to help. They finally arrived about 6 p.m. at the Port of Ilwaco, Wash. No one was injured.

Aging Oregon Zoo giraffe euthanized PORTLAND — Veterinarians at the Oregon Zoo euthanized an aging giraffe. Akeem was found lying still Saturday in the giraffe barn, and keepers could do nothing to help him. KGW reports zoo officials believe he succumbed to old age. He was 25. In the wild, giraffes live between 15 and 20 years. Akeem means “great one” in Swahili. He stood 18 feet tall and weighed 2,200 pounds. He sired three calves over the years in the zoo’s Africa Savanna exhibit.

Large crowd at slain officer’s memorial PENDLETON — More than 700 friends, relatives and law enforcement officers turned out for a memorial honoring an Eastern Oregon correctional officer killed when he stopped to help a person he thought was a stranded motorist. Oregon Corrections Chief Max Williams said the life and selflessness of 42-year-old Buddy Ray Herron should inspire others. Hundreds of Northwest police, firefighters, correctional officers and paramedics attended Monday’s ceremony in Pendleton. Herron was able to call 911 late on the night of Nov. 28 to report he’d been stabbed. He was on his way to work at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution. He was pronounced dead at a Pendleton hospital. The Umatilla County district attorney’s office has charged 22-year-old Joshua Weeks with murder. — From wire reports

a random event,” Holderness said. “Until the day we have someone in custody, we can’t be sure.” The three people that police were hoping to speak with are an unidentified jogger, a woman in a pink jacket walking two dogs, and a person riding a bicycle. All were in the vicinity of a cemetery a short distance from the slaying scene.

SALEM — A Bend attorney has filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate two Oregon Supreme Court decisions that have limited efforts to cut pension benefits for public employees. Daniel Re argues in a brief filed last week in the state Court of Appeals that the judges who decided the cases had a conflict of interest because they would eventually receive pensions from the Public Employee Retirement System. One decision overturned a 1994 ballot measure that limited public pension benefits. The other said the state can’t roll back benefits already promised to retirees. The decisions have limited the options available to state lawmakers who want to spend less on retirement benefits for public employees at a time when tax revenue is considerably constrained. “It’s really in the benefit of everyone to ensure that we’re treated fairly and that our right primarily to independent judges is maintained,” Re said. In deciding the earlier cases, the Supreme Court noted that the judges could have a financial interest in their decision but found that a “rule of necessity” allowed them to handle the case. No impartial panel of jurists could be seated because state law

requires nearly all Oregon judges to be part of PERS, the court found. Re’s legal challenge argues that the court was wrong because judges appointed at age 70 or older are not required to join PERS. The Supreme Court could have appointed older lawyers as temporary judges to a trial court, and then appointed them as temporary Supreme Court justices for the purposes of handling a PERS case, he argues. Furthermore, the state and U.S. constitutions guarantee a right to a fair hearing from an impartial judge, he argues. Joe O’Leary, policy director for the Public Employees Retirement System, said PERS will review the lawsuit and “our lawyers will respond to it within the schedule set by the Court of Appeals.” Re said he is primarily targeting Oregon State Police Officers’ Association v. State of Oregon, a 1996 case that threw out Measure 8, which was pushed by initiative guru Bill Sizemore and past by a narrow margin. The measure would have required public employees to contribute 6 percent of their salary to their retirement plan, prohibited a guaranteed rate of return for pensions and made it illegal for PERS to allow beneficiaries to boost their pensions with unused sick time.

Catch and release DUII case shows need for change

O

nce in 2008, once in 2010 and four times this November. Those are the drunken driving arrests for George

Walter Holroyd, 54, of Bend. Why do they keep releasing him? Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton said jail personnel aren’t necessarily aware of recent arrests when a drunken driving case comes in. So unless the same staff is on duty and happens to recall the earlier arrest, there’s no basis for a different approach. Normal procedure on a first offense is a release to a responsible adult with no bail. The jail handles an average of 16 arrests a day, Blanton said, plus providing numerous transports, so it’s not surprising that a repeat might not be noticed. In addition, he said, not all drunken driving arrests even come to the jail, with some being handled at police offices. Blanton said on Holroyd’s fourth arrest in November, his office made contact with the district attorney’s office, which in turn contacted a judge to get bail raised to $125,000. In Holroyd’s older cases, he completed the diversion program on the 2008 charge and pleaded guilty in the 2010 arrest, with sentencing scheduled for next week. Blanton said repeat arrests like this are rare, and information about all the cases will be available in the courtroom for

Imagine if your daughter had been hurt as a result of Walter Holroyd’s Nov. 28 intoxicated drive. How would you feel when you heard he’d been picked up on Nov. 3 and again on Nov. 15 and again on Nov. 23, and he was still out there on Nov. 28? Holroyd’s sentencing. That’s reassuring, but imagine if your daughter had been hurt as a result of Holroyd’s Nov. 28 intoxicated drive. How would you feel when you heard he’d been picked up on Nov. 3 and again on Nov. 15 and again on Nov. 23, and he was still out there on Nov. 28? We’re lucky that didn’t happened in this case, but we shouldn’t need to depend on luck. In this day of instant electronic information, jail personnel ought to have easy access to recent arrest information so they can take more aggressive action when appropriate.

Football title returns to Bend after 71 years

C

ome next year, the Mountain View Cougars will be old hands at the state football championship business. This morning, however, the state 5A title is less than 72 hours old. It’s still time to celebrate. Mountain View High School opened its doors to students for the first time in the fall of 1978. One year later, it put its first varsity football team on the field. Since then, it has done what most schools do: won some and lost others. It has played rival Bend High School more than 32 times, and Summit High School every year since the latter began playing varsity sports. What it had not done was win a state football championship. The championship drought was not limited to Mountain View, however. No Bend team from any of the three high schools had been a state football champion in 71 years, clear back in 1940. That was not only Bend’s last state football title, it was the state of Oregon’s first official football title. In that game, Bend played

Medford in Medford on Saturday, Nov. 30, and won the game, 20-7. The lead-up to the championship was not without controversy, meanwhile. La Grande, which at the end of the regular season was the only undefeated team in the state, saw no reason to take part in playoffs before the final game, according to an editorial in The Dalles Chronicle. There was no such disagreement leading up to last Saturday’s game. Football playoffs follow a pattern — though it has been adjusted from time to time — which is roughly similar to the one that led to that first championship in 1940. Instead, Mountain View’s victory Saturday can be taken at face value. The team is the best of those fielded by schools its size in the state. Its members played hard and they clearly played well. They may have been underdogs, but like all great underdogs, they overcame and won by a single point. You can’t ask for more than that.

My Nickel’s Worth Toys from an ‘enemy’ Christmas is just around the corner, and with it, the usual unloading of junk toys from China, usually painted with lead-based paint. Why aren’t these toys manufactured here, where people take pride in their work and lead-based paints have been outlawed? Doesn’t anyone in corporate America remember the Cold War, and that while the U.S. was fighting in Korea and Vietnam, we were also fighting the Chinese? Are corporate profits so important that we, as a country, have to resort to purchasing inferior goods from a sworn enemy, just to keep profit margins up? I hope not! Randy Avery Prineville

Ways to help animals Have you ever wondered why animals are abused, abandoned, neglected or endangered? Well, it’s because of us. You’ll see on most endangered species’ predator lists that mankind is the biggie. We’ve also been known to own puppy mills, dog fighting clubs and to leave our pets out on the streets. Here are some ways to help that: • Spay or neuter your pet. Seriously, people, is it worth it to let your pet have cute little babies, only to give them to the Humane Society? • Volunteer at the Humane Society — walking dogs and letting them in playpens, playing in play rooms with cats and kittens and giving the occasional bath. • Start a career in a nonprofit organization that supports endangered species. By doing this, you will get a job and the good feeling that comes with helping animals in need. • Set up a collection can at your workplace. This way, a fellow worker can pass by, see the can, decide

they have some change to spare and donate! Your can should say something like “All proceeds go to ...â€? • Go to any fundraiser or event that supports animals in need and raise awareness about the cause. With your help, we can produce a better future for these animals! Jessie Joyner, 11 Bend

Congress has final say It amazes me how Ronald Reagan detractors like John Poe — in his In My View column on Nov. 28 — either absolve or seem to forget about the Democratic-controlled Congress of that time. In 1982, Reagan did indeed raise some taxes with the promise from Congress to cut spending. Still waiting for those cuts. From 1980 to 1988, the revenue taken in by the federal government nearly doubled due to reduced tax rates like Reagan predicted. Yet spending, under control of Congress, continued unabated. Remember, under our Constitution, a president can only propose, but Congress has the final say in how revenue is spent. Jeff Bender Redmond

No means no, Lariviere The firing of Richard Lariviere, the president of the University of Oregon, has raised many protests from many of the administrators and faculty at the school. I can understand why. One thousand of these same people received pay raises approved by Lariviere despite the salary freeze that was put on for all state employees. In addition, he let some of them work overtime to make up for the furlough days that were directed by the state Legislature, thus defeating the purpose of saving money to help balance the budget. He refused

to attend Oregon University System meetings — which were required of all university presidents — and when he didn’t get his way on autonomy for the UO, he went around his bosses directly to the Legislature. He didn’t understand “no.� The protesting administrators and faculty laud Lariviere as a forward-thinking president who was poised to take the university to new heights and was only being held back by an incompetent OUS board — and the governor? However, his methods have questionable ethical ramifications. Exactly what values are these administrators and faculty teaching our young people? Tom Hall Bend

UO is being punished It appears to me that the firing of Richard Lariviere was a test for Gov. John Kitzhaber and the State Board of Higher Education. Who has the most clout? The board won out and the faculty and students will suffer the consequences. Unfortunate as it is, it may be hard to find an equally aggressive president as Lariviere. Anyone of that caliber would not want to be a puppet of the board. The major goal of any university or company is to be financially solvent. I don’t see the University of Oregon stomping its feet to get rid of Coach Chip Kelly. He has brought the football program to national prominence. The department is also very stable, financially. Lariviere was bringing UO to the same status. He should have been applauded by the governor and the board for accomplishing what other universities have not. John Davis La Pine

Oregonians have stake in Bristol Bay-Pebble Mine fight By Brian O’Keefe ’ve had the great fortune to have fished all over the world — in salt water, fresh water, tropical zones, cold water and everything in between. What started as a 30-plus year career traveling to exotic places with rod and camera began in Bristol Bay, Alaska — where I first traveled in 1975, then guided for a few years starting in 1979. Bristol Bay is like a fishing rite of passage. Last summer, more than 50 fishing guides from Oregon earned their wages helping clients land gorgeous rainbow trout on the fly. Others went to manage camps and lodges on remote rivers. Joining them in this migration north were several hundred commercial fishermen and crew from Oregon who haul in the huge, sustainable sockeye salmon run for which the region is famed.

I

In 2010, over 13,000 Oregonians bought licenses to sport fish in Alaska. Bristol Bay is host to all five salmon species, as well as the largest sockeye run in the world. Up to 60 million sockeye salmon return to Bristol Bay every year, and the region accounts for nearly half of the sockeye salmon harvest on the planet. Oregon businesses recognize this sustainable wild food source and bring it to customers here, at quality grocery stores and numerous restaurants around the state that serve Bristol Bay salmon. While there are some disagreements over fish policy here in Oregon between commercial and sport fishermen, both commercial and sport fisherman depend on Bristol Bay and there is no disagreement that this priceless place must be saved. That is why both sides have joined together

IN MY VIEW to fight for Bristol Bay and their livelihoods. What makes the fishing possible is not only an intact ecosystem, but also a healthy industry, community and infrastructure that support lots of jobs — for the people who guide, fly floatplanes and work in lodges, canneries, fishing boats, and on the docks. Their jobs and the very habitat and fishery that support them are under threat from a proposed gold, copper and molybdenum mine called Pebble. If built, Pebble Mine would be one of the largest mines in the world, excavating an open pit mine several miles wide and 1,700 feet deep, in addition to an underground mine of similar size. All of this — in addition to massive waste tailings “ponds�

held back behind 700-foot tall earthen dams — is planned for development near the headwaters of Bristol Bay in an area known for powerful earthquakes. Thankfully, there’s a broad coalition of folks working to protect Bristol Bay from the risks of Pebble Mine. Oregon has been in the fight from the start. Fifty Oregon business and fishing conservation groups have signed a letter asking the White House to support the Environmental Protection Agency’s Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment to determine whether such massive-scale mining projects would have an adverse effect on the natural resources and fisheries there. If the EPA determined that dredging and fill material from mining could have such an adverse impact, it could use a power under the Clean Water Act called 404(c) authority to block

development of the mine. Oregonians need to speak up for Bristol Bay. It is part of the heritage and livelihoods of our commercial fishing fleet and our sport fishermen, and a major source of the wild salmon we purchase. I hope you’ll join us for the Save Bristol Bay Road Show at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, at the The Old Stone, 157 Franklin Ave., in Bend. This free event includes a screening of the awardwinning film “Red Gold,� salmon appetizers and local brews. Plus, you’ll get an update on the Save Bristol Bay campaign. For more information, see www.savebristolbay.org. Another thing you can do is to write or call the offices of Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and urge them to protect Bristol Bay, helping ensure it’s there for future generations. — Brian O’Keefe lives in Bend.

Auctioned Indian artifacts net $338K for historical society By Damian Mann (Medford) Mail Tribune

One of the earliest examples of a Cheyenne war shirt, fringed with locks of human hair — along with several other artifacts — brought in $338,500 for the Southern Oregon Historical Society during an auction Monday in San Francisco. The society’s move to sell the shirt has drawn criticism from tribal officials. “It’s sad what’s happening,� said Steve Vance, tribal historic preservation officer with the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. “If I could stop it, I would.� An analysis by the historical society indicates the shirt could be the earliest example of its kind from the Cheyenne tribe, dating from the 1830s to 1840s. The auction was conducted by British-based Bonhams and included other American Indian artifacts from SOHS, such as a Cheyenne tobacco bag, a Sioux pipe and a bow case, quiver and arrows. Included in the collection are an Anglo-American mourning dress and an Anglo-American beaded purse. The estimated value of the collection, which the historical society sold as one unit called The Ben Bones Collection, was between $300,000 to $500,000. SOHS and other museums throughout the world undertake a lengthy process before selling or donating items that aren’t appropriate to their mission but take up space and resources to manage. SOHS rarely deacces-

Sisters Continued from C1 The rate was set to expire Dec. 1, but councilors voted 4-1 last month to retain the increase, which was intended to be temporary. They are now sending letters to community members on the subject. City Manager Eileen Stein said she expects that is where the rate will stay. “The sense I have is that council, with the 4 percent increase, is OK with where we’re at,� she said. “This leaves a modest ending fund balance that will probably get us through the next few years.� Maintaining the current rate will require the city to defer almost $6 million worth of water system improvements beyond 2016. It’s also likely to drive the water fund’s ending balance below the level recommended by city policy. In 2015 and 2016, the fund’s ending balance is estimated

sioned artifacts from its collection until two years ago, when financial pressures increased and the society began weeding out items that don’t have any connection with the history of Southern Oregon. Since May 2009, artifact sales have totaled $155,176.

Story behind the shirt The Cheyenne shirt, donated to the historical society by Grants Pass resident Benjamin Bones in 1957, was obtained by Bones’ ancestor — Marquis Fargo Cutting — at Fort McPherson, Neb., close to modern-day North Platte. How the artifacts fell into Cutting’s hands still is shrouded in mystery. But tantalizing shreds of information show the transaction involved a famous American Indian leader — Chief Spotted Tail of the Sicangu Lakota — and a U.S. senator named James Rood Doolittle, Cutting’s relative. Vance, who learned of the shirt only recently, said other institutions such as the Smithsonian have obtained American Indian artifacts over the years, and tribal officials have sought their return without success. The selling of the shirt is just the latest example of Indian artifacts not being returned to the appropriate tribes, he said. “It’s basically a slap in the

to sit at $25,367. That’s about $53,000 lower than city policy recommends. At least one City Council member considers the reserve inadequate. “Right now, if something breaks, we have to borrow from ourselves,� said David Asson, the lone council member to oppose the rate proposal. “That may be legal, but it’s not necessarily a wise thing to do.� Because of that, he wants to revisit the water rate discussion. “I would still like to start that again come January, but I don’t think I have much of a chance for that,� he said. Councilor Sharleen Weed said she believes the fund’s ending balance will prove sufficient while allowing the city to avoid hiking water rates during a recession. “We were able to postpone a lot of projects and keep the rates as low as possible,� Weed said. “The fund balances are going to be fine for the next two or three years. It’s always a positive balance, and we will

face, but we’ve seen worse,� Vance said. He cited an ongoing legal dispute with Skull and Bones, a secretive society at Yale University, over a skull and other artifacts belonging to the famous Apache warrior Geronimo. Dianne Desrosiers, tribal historic preservation officer for the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate in South Dakota, said she has forwarded information about the shirt to other tribal officials to determine its ceremonial significance. Based on her observations from a photo, Desrosiers said it appears to be a very old example of a Cheyenne shirt. “It’s exquisite, I will say that,� she said. Pat Harper, SOHS interim director, said a report was commissioned in August to make sure that the sale of the shirt wouldn’t violate the Native American Grave Repatriation Act. “Items such as shirts are not covered by cultural patrimony,� she said. “We wanted to be absolutely certain that we weren’t defying the law.� She said attempts to sell the artifacts to a nonprofit have met without success over the past two years. Harper said part of the historical society’s mission is to generate sufficient money to preserve the artifacts that relate to this region. “If money were no object, it would be a different story,� she said. “We wish we could have given it away. But that wouldn’t be responsible to our mission.� Tina Reuwsaat, associate curator of collections for the historical society, said an attempt was made to contact Cheyenne and Sioux tribal members through American Indians at Southern Oregon University. “We never got any responses,� she said.

be watching it, so it’s not a big concern.� Councilors and other officials have debated the need for infrastructure upgrades in recent years. The chief of the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District expressed concern about fire hydrant flows in a letter to councilors earlier this year. “Our concern,� wrote Chief Tay Robertson, “is that without upgrades, the water system will further degrade.� For the next five years, at least, significant upgrades are unlikely to happen. Mayor Lon Kellstrom acknowledged that council’s rate decision won’t solve the city’s water system problems in the long term. Nonetheless, he said, “I don’t expect this to be talked about again at least over the next year. A future council will have to address the water rate issue again because I don’t think there’s any interest in reopening that discussion.� — Reporter: 541-617-7837, ehidle@bendbulletin.com

In the latest case, Tracy is accused of illegally discharging a 1.5-mile long plume of sediment into a coho salmonbearing section of Galice Creek in June. According to a federal affidavit obtained by the Medford Mail Tribune, Tracy filed a notice with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to conduct a year-round mining operation on Galice Creek.

Cottage Grove gravel mine opponents win state appeal COTTAGE GROVE — Opponents of a gravel mining operation planned southeast of town have won a decision from the state that sends the project back to Lane County for review. The state Land Use Board of Appeals said the 40 landowners and residents with Families for a Quarry-Free Neighborhood deserve a chance to join a hearing on the 4-yearold proposal to mine land off Quaglia Road. Mining applicants Donald Overholser and Rodney Mathews sought county approval in 2007 for the 18-acre quarry operation, which could be mined at the rate of 20,000 cubic yards of rock annually for 35 years if approved. Their intent was to sell rock to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service and private forest landowners. Agencies and private companies typically need such rock

for forest roads. The county approved the project in March 2010 with 17 conditions meant to address concerns from the impact of mining on livability to wildlife. The applicants appealed nine conditions to Lane County Hearings Official Gary Darnielle, arguing in part that the requirements for road improvements weren’t proportional to the impacts on the roads the trucking would cause. Opponents asked Darnielle to let them participate in defense of all conditions. Darnielle blocked them, saying their arguments had already been

The BLM requested that Tracy further explain his intentions. According to the BLM, Tracy ignored the agency’s inquiries. On June 16, two BLM geologists were working on Galice Creek when they noticed the stream was unusually clouded by sediment. They followed the plume 1.5 miles and found it had originated from Tracy’s claim.

included in the record and that allowing more testimony would cause an unfair delay in rendering a decision. Darnielle affirmed the county’s approval of the project but changed the conditions to operate. Opponents said Darnielle removed key restrictions on the maximum size, number of trips and speed with which hauling trucks could use local roads. They appealed to LUBA. In a Nov. 22 decision, the state board said Oregon statutes protect the opponents’ right to be heard at the county level. “The hearings official must provide (opponents) a right to participate as a party in (applicants’) appeal,” the board said. Dan Stotter, attorney for opponents of the project, said the applicants could appeal the decision to the Oregon Court of Appeals or ask the county to revisit the issue. It could take a year or more to resolve the matter, he added.

Culver’s Mote back in the money • Defending champ takes third; Redmond rider Peebles injured

Bob Click / For The Bulletin

Bobby Mote, of Culver, scores 87 points riding Good Time Charlie to a third-place finish in bareback in Las Vegas.

Bulletin staff report LAS VEGAS — It took Bobby Mote three months after suffering a lacerated pancreas to return to rodeo competition. Once back in the saddle, Mote took five days to return to his money-winning ways. A four-time world bareback champion from Culver, Mote placed third Monday night in his specialty during the fifth round of the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Winner of the last two world bareback titles, Mote posted an 87.0 — his best score of this, his 11th consecutive NFR — to earn the third-place prize of $10,673. Mote had been shut out of the

winnings (top six) in each of his first four performances in the 10-round NFR. Also in Monday’s bareback competition, Redmond’s Steven Peebles tied for fourth place with a score of 86.5 to finish in the money for the third time in these finals. But, according to an account by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, Peebles suffered a fractured right fibula and torn ankle ligaments when he went to dismount his ride. He will miss the rest of the 2011 NFR and, according to the PRCA report, he is expected to undergo surgery in the coming days. No other Central Oregon entry in the finals posted a top-six finish in Monday night’s performance. The 53rd annual NFR continues tonight at the Thomas & Mack Center.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Ducks dismiss CB Cliff Harris EUGENE — AllAmerica cornerback Cliff Harris has been dismissed from the Oregon Ducks for violating team rules. Harris was already suspended from the Ducks because of a traffic stop in October and wasn’t allowed to participate in team activities. He missed the last five games of the regular season and last weekend’s Pac-12 championship game. The Fresno Bee reported Monday that Harris was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana in Fresno, Calif., on Nov. 25. The junior is from the central California city and went to Edison High School. A spokesman for Oregon would not confirm the nature of the violation that caused Harris’ dismissal. Harris was suspended from the team indefinitely by coach Chip Kelly on Oct. 24 when he was cited for driving on a suspended license, without proper insurance and without a seatbelt. Harris was also suspended for the season opener after a he was cited for driving 118 mph on Interstate 5 in June. After the latest traffic stop, Harris provided proof of insurance on the car he was driving and that charge was dismissed. He pleaded no contest to the driving on a suspended license violation and was entered in a diversion program. He paid a $100 fine for the seatbelt violation.

S   B Football • Mississippi introduces Freeze as new head coach: Hugh Freeze choked up less than a minute after being introduced as Mississippi’s new football coach, acknowledging his wife and three daughters sitting on the stage behind him. “I’ve taken them all around the country to bring them back to one place,” an emotional Freeze said. “And that’s the University of Mississippi.” Freeze, 42, was named Ole Miss’ 37th football coach on Monday afternoon at a press conference on the university campus. He takes over for Houston Nutt, who was fired following one of the worst seasons in Ole Miss history. The Rebels finished with a 2-10 record, including a 0-8 mark in the Southeastern Conference. • Boise State coach says bowl system needs changes: Boise State football coach Chris Peterson is calling for an end to the current Bowl Championship Series system after the No. 7 Broncos were left out of the high-profile games. The Broncos (11-1) accepted an invitation to the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas on Sunday. It’s the fourth time the Broncos have finished in the top 10 of the BCS without getting a bid to one of the elite match-ups. This year, they were passed over along with Nos. 6 Arkansas, 8 Kansas State and 9 South Carolina. During a press conference Monday, Peterson said people are frustrated and tired of the BCS, the Idaho Statesman reported. Peterson also said the system needs to be changed, perhaps by using a committee like the men’s basketball tournament to rank the teams.

Contenders breaking away from pretenders in NFL playoff race By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

Stephen Morton / The Associated Press

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd scores on a 52-yard touchdown reception during the third quarter of Monday night’s game in Jacksonville, Fla. The Chargers won 38-14.

Chargers end losing streak, beat Jaguars The Associated Press JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — No matter how many interceptions he threw, no matter how many turnovers he committed, Philip Rivers refused to play it safe. He knew things would change. They finally did. On “Monday Night Football” no less, and with his San Diego Chargers in the deepest of holes. Rivers threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns, burning Jacksonville’s depleted secondary early and often, and the Chargers beat the Jaguars 38-14 to snap a six-game losing streak. The Chargers (5-7) had been waiting for the three-time Pro Bowl selection to return to form. Some questioned whether it would happen this season. But Rivers never lost faith even though he leads the NFL in interceptions (17) and turnovers (21) and was a key part of the team’s disappointing slide. “It’s been a rough six weeks,” Rivers said. “I haven’t put a complete game together, but I don’t care about the numbers. I just want to win.” Rivers was nearly perfect against Jacksonville (3-9), adding to the team’s tumultuous week. He completed 22 of 28 passes — hooking up with Vincent Brown, Vincent Jackson and Malcom Floyd for long scores — before sitting out the final few minutes. Rivers finished

New suit against NFL raises issue of painkillers A lawsuit filed by 12 former football players against the NFL about its concussion policies says there was widespread pregame use of an anti-inflammatory drug that could put someone with a head injury at increased risk. Pro Bowl receiver Joe Horn is among the plaintiffs named in the complaint that attorney Christopher Seeger says was filed in federal court in New Jersey on Monday. It’s one of about a half-dozen suits filed against the NFL in recent months by past players who say the league did not do enough to protect them from concussions. League spokesman Greg Aiello said: “Any allegation that the NFL intentionally sought to mislead players has no merit.” He declined to address the issue of the pregame use of painkillers. — The Associated Press

with a 146.1 QB rating, by far his highest of the season. The Chargers scored on five of their first six drives, then sent most of the home crowd scrambling for the exits with Ryan Mathews’ 31-yard TD

run in the fourth. Mathews ran 13 times for 112 yards. “That’s the type of chemistry coming into this season we knew we had,” tight end Antonio Gates said. “We stayed on course despite what we’ve been through these last six weeks. That we were able to get a win tonight speaks volumes for this team.” It was a much-needed victory for a team that trails Denver and Oakland by two games in the AFC West with four to play. And it was another blow to the Jaguars, who endured the most sweeping changes in the 17-year history of the franchise last week. Team owner Wayne Weaver fired coach Jack Del Rio and announced he was selling the club to Illinois businessman Shahid Khan. Interim coach Mel Tucker fired receivers coach Johnny Cox, reassigned quarterbacks coach Mike Sheppard and waived starting receiver Jason Hill. The moves seemed to invigorate a franchise that had seemingly gone stale in Del Rio’s ninth season. Fans showed up energized for a prime-time game that signaled the start of a new era. Some wore “Yes We Khan” T-shirts. Other donned fake mustaches to emulate the owner-in-waiting. It made little difference on the field, mostly because Jacksonville’s defensive injuries proved too much to overcome.

NEW YORK — With a month left in the regular season, the Packers, 49ers and Saints have separated themselves from the rest of the NFC, and perhaps from the rest of the league. Green Bay and San Francisco already have secured division titles, and New Orleans is almost there. The AFC’s elite, while not quite so accomplished, include the Ravens, Steelers, Patriots and Texans. Then there’s the muddle in the middle: teams with varied strengths and weaknesses. Nine teams sit at 7-5, and one (Giants) at 6-6. All are in the mix to either win their division or grab a wild-card spot. Most, if not all, will be watching the Super Bowl at home, no matter how bravely they talk. Yes, that means you, Justin Tuck, the Giants defensive end who said this after the 38-35 loss to Green Bay, his team’s fourth straight: “Hopefully something wakes us back up and lets us understand that we still have a great shot of getting to where we want to get if we come out with that intensity and come out with that passion and play like that every game, we aren’t going to lose a lot of games.” That said, here’s who really has a shot at making the postseason:

Contenders The Packers lead the list, naturally, just as they lead the standings at 12-0 and seem headed for an undefeated regular season — if they decide to chase it. Aaron Rodgers is in the midst of one of the greatest years for any NFL player, quarterback or otherwise. The offense is so dynamic the Packers can outscore the mistakes of their gambling defense, which makes a bunch of them. Green Bay also has been through the crucible, having won the Super Bowl at the end of a six-game winning string to finish off the 2010 season. “I think it helps to have done what we did last year,” receiver Greg Jennings said. Two years ago, it was New Orleans leading the charmed life. Drew Brees has an even deeper, more dangerous receiving corps and backfield than in 2009, and while the Saints also have issues on defense, they, too, can outscore them. Plus, the Saints understand the pressures of chasing a championship. The 49ers most certainly don’t as they have become one of the NFL’s surprise success stories. Having clinched their first playoff berth since 2002, the Niners have the kind of rugged, versatile defense that gives any team a chance. “It’s not a Hollywood team,” coach Jim Harbaugh said. “It’s a blue-collar team.” Four AFC teams are 9-3 and, barring collapses, are headed to the postseason. New England, Baltimore and Pittsburgh are the perennials, Houston the newcomer. Unlike the NFC’s best, though, each carries some hefty question marks. As long as Tom Brady is slinging the ball and Bill Belichick is masterminding game plans, the Patriots can’t be discounted. Their defense, though, isn’t particularly reliable, with a secondary that makes big plays and gives them up, and a so-so pass rush. Plus, they have lost their last three postseason games, two at home. There’s no air of invin-

cibility around them. Nor is there one around AFC defending champion Pittsburgh, which must protect Ben Roethlisberger better and create more turnovers on defense. Still, the Steelers are coming on. Baltimore might have the best balance of offense, defense and special teams in the AFC, with game-breakers (Ray Rice, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata) on both sides of the ball. If the Ravens have cured their tendency to play down to the level of the opposition and can get home-field advantage for the entire playoffs, they could be formidable. Houston, closing in on its first playoff appearance in its 10th season, is using a rookie third-string quarterback and has been ravaged by injuries, yet has responded superbly. The Texans need to maintain their winning formula even without some key players, a difficult enough challenge in the regular season. The remaining schedule is not the most rugged with Cincinnati, Carolina, Indianapolis and Tennessee still ahead.

Pretenders Even with the enticing story they are writing with Tim Tebow, a forceful defense and some great clutch performances, it’s difficult to see the Broncos riding deep into the playoffs. Same for the Raiders, who are tied with Denver atop the AFC West but who have huge issues on defense and with penalties. One of them will win the division — their schedules are similar and they don’t meet again — and not much more. Dallas can be dangerous in the NFC East, and also can be a flop, as it proved Sunday at Arizona and nearly did on Thanksgiving Day against Miami. You don’t face anyone on the Cardinals’ or Dolphins’ level in the playoffs. The Cowboys might not even get out of the division if they don’t at least split with the Giants, who trail them by a game and have significant problems running the ball and covering the pass. Cincinnati can’t beat any of the good teams on its schedule, Chicago is down to a backup quarterback and its key offensive player, RB Matt Forte, has an injured right knee. Undisciplined on the field, Detroit is in semi-free-fall. The Jets won’t match their last two Januarys, in which they made the AFC title game, unless their defense tackles and covers better, their special teams hold onto the ball and they get a running game to take pressure off QB Mark Sanchez. Tennessee probably needs to beat New Orleans or Houston to grab a wild-card slot, but at least its best player, Chris Johnson, is hitting his peak and is capable of carrying the Titans higher than projected. That leaves Atlanta, the one “outsider” with the best chance of having an impact in the final four weeks. For that to happen, the Falcons need to emulate their regular season of 2010, when they were the NFC’s top seed. And soon. Coach Mike Smith expects it will happen. “We have not played smart, we have not played consistent and I don’t believe we’ve played as focused as we need to be,” he said. “And I think that shows that during different parts of a football game, we’re hitting on all cylinders and then other times, we’re not. That’s something we’ve got to get fixed as a team and we’re going to do this thing together.”

Marlins become big players in offseason market By Ronald Blum The Asso ciated Press

DALLAS — Jeffrey Loria watched the news conference from the second row, beaming like a proud parent as Heath Bell talked about his new love for the Miami Marlins and reuniting with Jose Reyes. Trying to make a quick getaway, the owner was surrounded by reporters in the corridor who wanted to know who else would be migrating to South Florida: Albert Pujols, C.J. Wilson, Mark Buehrle? Instead of trading away their stars, the Marlins have become the biggest player in the offseason market, the riches from their new ballpark a freeagent attraction. “I want our team to be important,” Loria said Monday as the winter meetings opened. “It’s an energy city, and I think that’s one of the things that brings the players there. They see the energy.” Bell’s $27 million, three-year contract was finalized, giving the renamed Marlins an All-Star closer. Reyes’ $106 million, six-year deal is a satisfactory physical exam from conclusion. Pujols, who already has toured the new ballpark, would join Hanley Ramirez, Mike Stanton and Logan Morrison in the batting order — if the three-time NL MVP is willing to leave the St. Louis Cardinals, the only major league team he’s played for. “One big hitter?” Loria said out

loud, his 2003 World Series ring flashing from his hand. “Well, I don’t know about that, but there’s a possibility of another player or two we’re looking at.” Morrison, among others, was wondering. “Just out of surgery. Everything went well,” he wrote on Twitter after a minor knee operation, adding: “Have we signed Pujols yet??” On the mound, Wilson or Buehrle could be added to a rotation that includes Josh Johnson (if healthy), Ricky Nolasco, Anibal Sanchez and Chris Volstad. While the Marlins are being aggressive, traditional big spenders such as the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are moving cautiously, both with free agents and in the trade market. “It’s hey, take my older, expensive, over-the-hill guy for your young, better-performing guy,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “Let me think about that and get back to you, buddy.” Not that he’s acting any differently with opening day four months away. “I’m sure my ideas are as distasteful as the ones that I’ve received,” he said. As the four-day swap session began, the first piece of formal business was the annual meeting of the Hall of Fame Veterans Committee, which elected late Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo. He’ll be inducted in Cooperstown on July 22, along with any players elected by members of

MLB avg salary up 2.7 percent to $3.1M DALLAS — The average major league salary increased 2.7 percent this year to nearly $3.1 million, the largest rise since 2008. The 913 players on Aug. 31 rosters and disabled lists averaged $3,095,183, the Major League Baseball Players Association said Monday in its annual report, up from $3,014,572 last year when the average topped $3 million for the first time. The New York Yankees had the highest average salary for the 13th consecutive season, but at $6.54 million it declined for the second straight year, down from a peak of $7.66 million when they won the World Series in 2009. Philadelphia was second at $6.44 million. Kansas City was last at $1.34 million. — The Associated Press

the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Jan. 9. Pujols and Prince Fielder are the big bats on the market, and it remains unclear whether Pujols is willing to leave the World Series champions, where he’s joined Stan Musial as a franchise icon. “I always use the word hopeful,” Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr.

said. “I think it’s presumptive to say that I’m optimistic because we obviously have continuing discussions and have a good dialogue going.” No longer watching players like Josh Beckett and Miguel Cabrera getting hooked by other teams, the Marlins now have the bait to attract baseball’s best. They drew a major league-low 1.52 million fans to Sun Life Stadium, also home to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, last season. But Loria expects his team will draw 2.5 million to 3 million at the new ballpark. “When you have a ballpark that seats 78,000, there’s no great demand — and in the middle of nowhere in a football-configured stadium,” he said. “But with a ballpark half the size of that and a baseball-only ballpark, you create a different kind of experience and we’ve seen it in our sales already.” The rest of baseball has taken notice of a team that hopes to overtake Philadelphia and Atlanta in the NL East. “Good for the Marlins. I’m happy for them, and it’s something, of course, I’d like to see happen for us. But in the meantime, you can’t cry about it,” said Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, whose team along with Oakland are the last two trying to get new ballparks. Calling Reyes an “exciting young man” and Wilson a “very intelligent and very interesting guy,” Loria said he thinks the Marlins can become a

consistent winner in their retractableroof ballpark, not far from downtown Miami. “With the roster that we have and the things we hope we can do, the outlook is very good,” he said. “I’m not going to make any predictions. But we certainly want to be in position to compete seriously.” While the Marlins are poaching, other teams want to retain their stars. Texas may want Wilson back after he helped it come within one strike of the team’s first World Series title. “We basically felt they were going to test the market and we’d circle back to each other,” general manager Jon Daniels said. The Mets, plunging to losing records in all three seasons at Citi Field and plagued by losses from the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme, are cutting payroll from the $140 million range in 2008 and 2009 to about $100 million next year. General manager Sandy Alderson said the team lost $70 million but wouldn’t say whether it was all this year. “When I took the job, my understanding was the payroll was not at a sustainable level, that it would have to come down somewhat,” he said. “Perhaps it’s had to come down a little more than I would have expected.” Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to a $6 million, two-year contract with utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. and neared an agreement with pitcher Aaron Harang.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS

NCAA president considers guidelines for minors By Michael Marot The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Mark Emmert is willing to help colleges and universities do a better job protecting minors on campus. In the wake of two disturbing child sex-abuse allegations in the past month, the NCAA president said Monday he has contacted U.S. Education Secretary Arnie Duncan so he can advise school leaders about the best practices in dealing with ball boys, ball girls and students who attend summer camps.

“We’re looking into that right now,” Emmert told The Associated Press. “Because we’ve never been involved with this kind of thing before, we’re trying to determine what is the best thing to do.” Emmert did not provide specific details on what those guidelines may include, how extensive they could be or when they might be completed. No, Emmert does not intend to add the guidelines to the massive 400plus-page rule book, but he wants to prevent future improprieties from occurring and wants to find out if there

Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith, left, gets congratulated by teammate Shane Doan (right) after Phoenix beat Chicago 4-3 in a shootout on Monday night in Chicago.

Phoenix needs shootout to beat Chicago The Associated Press CHICAGO — One strong, convincing performance plus one tight shootout victory added up to four valuable points for the Phoenix Coyotes. Radim Vrbata and Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored in the shootout and Mike Smith stopped Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa in the tiebreaker to lead the Coyotes to a wild 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night. Phoenix had lost two games since a 4-1 victory over the Blackhawks last Tuesday. “Any way you look at it, to come in here twice in a week and get four points, we’ll take it,” Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. Vrbata, Raffi Torres and Keith Yandle scored in regulation for Phoenix, which recovered after blowing a 3-0 lead. Smith finished with 32 saves. Ekman-Larsson went first in the tiebreaker and beat Ray Emery into the right side of the net. After Toews failed to stuff the puck in at the left post, Vrbata converted a backhander. Smith then denied Hossa to give the Coyotes the victory. The puck trickled in after Smith made the save on Hossa, but the referee ruled he had already stopped the shootout chance. “We kind of let our guard down a little bit and got away from our game plan,” Smith said. “We regrouped in the third and came out with a big win. We got back to the way we were playing in the first. We’d been trying to make too many plays at our blue line.” Toews had two goals and an assist for the Blackhawks, who had won four of five. Toews has seven goals and six assists in six games. Emery replaced Corey Crawford early in the second period and stopped all 11 shots he faced before the shootout. Also on Monday: Bruins. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Penguins . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 PITTSBURGH — Gregory Campbell, Benoit Pouliot and Tyler Seguin scored, Tim Thomas stopped 45 shots, and surging Boston kept rolling with a win over Pittsburgh.

is a pervasive culture within athletic departments that could lead to coverups of criminal conduct. “When you have a veil of secrecy, you have the potential for abusive behavior whether it’s in the Catholic Church, a school or whatever, and that applies to all of us, not just the NCAA,” Emmert told reporters in Indianapolis. Penn State has already said it is considering a change to its school policy, too. “We are looking at issues such as you mentioned,” school president

Rod Erickson said. “For example, the sports camps, and who was allowed to participate in the supervisory or oversight kind of role. But we’re also relying on the special investigations task force, which is looking at every aspect of policy and practice. I’ve already said as part of my five promises that will implement the recommendations that come out of that investigation.” Emmert’s comments came in the final month of a scandal-tinged year that has damaged the images of athletic programs from Boise State and Tennessee to Miami and Ohio State.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Ranking the bowl games: 1-35

26. Hawaii Bowl, Nevada (7-5) vs. Southern Miss (11-2), Dec. 24: Southern Miss beat up on Houston in the Conference USA title game, spoiling the Cougars’ BCS hopes and earning a trip to Hawaii to boot. Not bad, huh? 25. Poinsettia Bowl, Louisiana Tech (8-4) vs. TCU (10-2), Dec. 21: TCU is in the same boat as Boise State — a really good season ends in a minor bowl. One difference is that TCU’s opponent definitely will show up ready to play. 24. Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, Ohio (9-4) vs. Utah State (7-5), Dec. 17: Ohio lost a heartbreaker to Northern Illinois on a last-play field goal in the MAC title game. As a result, the Bobcats get shipped to Boise to play on the blue turf. Utah State has a potent offense, and this could be a high-scoring affair. (A side note: Before the game, as part of the 75th anniversary celebration of the Idaho Potato Commission, a giant fake russet potato will be unveiled. How big is “giant”? The promotional materials say the potato is too large for a standard flatbed trailer. And, yes, we’re serious.) 23. New Orleans Bowl, Louisiana-Lafayette (9-3) vs. San Diego State (8-4), Dec. 17: ULL might be the nation’s biggest surprise, as the Ragin’ Cajuns were picked to finish last in the nine-team Sun Belt; instead, they finished second. Will SDSU have any fans in the stands? There should be a goodly number of points. 22. Liberty Bowl, Cincinnati (9-3) vs. Vanderbilt (6-6), Dec. 31: As far as we know, this is the only bowl this season in which both participants lost to Tennessee, which is sitting at home for the holidays. Cincy tied for the Big East title and Vandy went 2-6 in the SEC, so there’s a lot on the line for the Big East. 21. Independence Bowl, Missouri (7-5) vs. North Carolina (7-

5), Dec. 26: Both teams underachieved a bit relative to their talent level, so if each team is motivated, this could be quite entertaining. 20. Holiday Bowl, California (7-5) vs. Texas (7-5), Dec. 28: Both coaches have been at their schools forever, and the loser is going to hear a lot of grief in the offseason. (Actually, considering each team was so inconsistent, the winner is going to get some grief this offseason, too.) 19. Military Bowl, Air Force (7-5) vs. Toledo (8-4), Dec. 28: Neither plays all that much defense, so there should be points aplenty. And if you’re going to be watching a game on a Wednesday afternoon, you want to see points aplenty. 18. Belk Bowl, Louisville (75) vs. North Carolina State (75), Dec. 27: Louisville tied for the Big East’s regular-season title, while N.C. State was an ACC also-ran. In short, this is another important game for the Big East. 17. Sun Bowl, Georgia Tech (8-4) vs. Utah (7-5), Dec. 31: Both teams run well. Neither throws well. Thus, this could be the only bowl that takes less than three hours to finish. 16. Chick-fil-A Bowl, Auburn (7-5) vs. Virginia (8-4), Dec. 31: Auburn is No. 82 in scoring offense, Virginia No. 88. But both have some top-flight offensive personnel, so this actually could end up being a high-scoring game. 15. Gator Bowl, Florida (66) vs. Ohio State (6-6), Jan. 2: Two premier programs, but this has a car-wreck quality to it, as in, “Man, these teams aren’t that good — but I can’t turn away.” Florida is trying to avoid its first losing season since 1979; the Buckeyes haven’t had a losing season since 1988. 14. GoDaddy.Com Bowl, Arkansas State (10-2) vs. Northern Illinois (10-3), Jan. 8: This is the

last pre-title game bowl, and there should be a ton of points. Considering the defenses that will be on view the next night in New Orleans, this very well could be your final chance to see a touchdown in a college football game this season. 13. Sugar Bowl, Michigan (10-2) vs. Virginia Tech (11-2), Jan. 3: Or, to be more apt, the “Neither Truly Belongs in the BCS Bowl.” 12. Insight Bowl, Iowa (7-5) vs. Oklahoma (9-3), Dec. 30: After the 1998 season, both these schools were looking for new coaches. The assumption was that Bob Stoops, Florida’s defensive coordinator at the time, would take over at Iowa, his alma mater. Instead, he spurned the Hawkeyes and went to Oklahoma. Iowa hired Kirk Ferentz instead. This will be the first time they’ve met. 11. Armed Forces Bowl, BYU (9-3) vs. Tulsa (8-4), Dec. 30: Both have good records, but neither really has beaten anyone special. BYU owns one win over a bowl team, and Tulsa has two. So, are the good offensive numbers for both teams legit or a result of beating up on overmatched foes? 10. Champs Sports Bowl, Florida State (8-4) vs. Notre Dame (8-4), Dec. 29: Two of the bigger brand names in college football (even if both brands have lost a lot of luster in recent seasons). 9. Orange Bowl, Clemson (10-3) vs. West Virginia (9-3), Jan. 4: An intriguing meeting of the (offensive) minds between WVU coach Dana Holgorsen and Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris. Each defense has been inconsistent, so there could be a lot of points. A sub-plot: This is the ACC champ vs. the Big East champ. 8. Alamo Bowl, Baylor (9-3) vs. Washington (7-5), Dec. 29: This likely will be the final game for Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, a junior who seems

NFL-bound. Washington QB Keith Price has had a good season, too, with 29 TD passes. Both secondaries are suspect, so a game in the 30s (or even 40s) is possible. 7. Cotton Bowl, Arkansas (10-2) vs. Kansas State (10-2), Jan. 6: Both teams depend heavily on their quarterbacks. K-State’s Collin Klein can’t throw, but he heads a powerful rushing attack. Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson leads the SEC in passing. K-State’s pass defense was torched often this season — but the Hogs’ rushing defense hasn’t been that good, either. 6. Capital One Bowl, South Carolina (10-2) vs. Nebraska (9-3), Jan. 2: Both teams have been inconsistent on offense and neither wants to have to throw the ball. This is all about defense and the running game. And each coach, Nebraska’s Bo Pelini and South Carolina’s Steve Spurrier, should be good for a dozen or so sideline shots of anguish. 5. TicketCity Bowl, Houston (12-1) vs. Penn State (9-3), Jan. 2: This will be the final college game for Houston QB Case Keenum, who will graduate with almost every important NCAA passing record. He is 4-4 vs. Big Six opponents in his career. Penn State is the team no bowl wanted (with good reason), but the Nittany Lions’ defense will be the best Keenum has seen in a long, long time. Can he go out with a flourish? 4. Outback Bowl, Georgia (10-3) vs. Michigan State (10-3), Jan. 2: The Big Ten runner-up vs. the SEC runner-up. Michigan State was smoked by Alabama in last season’s Capital One Bowl. Will the Spartans have a better showing this time around? 3. Title game, Alabama (111) vs. LSU (13-0), Jan. 9: Alabama gets its second bite of the apple, this time away from home. Obviously, the defenses will be at the forefront again. 2. Rose Bowl, Oregon (112) vs. Wisconsin (11-2), Jan. 2: Wisconsin’s brute force likely will work well against the Ducks. Conversely, Oregon’s sheer speed likely will work well against the Badgers. In short, this is a fascinating study of contrasting styles. 1. Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma State (11-1) vs. Stanford (11-1), Jan. 2: Both lost in November to end their national title hopes, and this will be the final game for each team’s stud quarterback. You have to think that at some point during the game, Stanford QB Andrew Luck will gaze wistfully at the field and wonder what kind of numbers he could put up with Oklahoma State’s wide receivers. At the same time, you have to think Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden will gaze wistfully at the field and wonder what it would be like to play on a team whose defense ranks 25th nationally instead of 107th.

touchdowns. He has also run for 644 yards and nine touchdowns. And much like Luck, Griffin has led a long-struggling program to its greatest success in decades. Baylor is 9-3 this season, its first ninewin season since 1986. The best showing a Baylor player has ever had in the Heisman voting was quarterback Don Trull’s fourth-place finish in 1963. Richardson has been the

unquestioned offensive engine for No. 2 Alabama. He’s fifth in the nation in rushing at 131.9 yards per game and tied for fifth in touchdowns with 23. Richardson and the Crimson Tide will meet Mathieu and LSU in the BCS championship game on Jan. 9 in New Orleans. The sophomore cornerback is the second defensive player to be a Heisman finalist in the last three years. Defensive

tackle Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska finished fourth in 2009. Mathieu, though, is more like Charles Woodson, the do-it-all defensive back who won the 1997 Heisman for Michigan. Mathieu has forced five fumbles, intercepted two passes and scored four touchdowns, including two long punt returns in LSU’s last two games against Arkansas and

Georgia. He also was suspended for a game this season for violating the team’s drug policy. Ball has been a touchdown machine for Wisconsin and ranks fourth in rushing at 135.3 yards per game. He has 12 more touchdowns than any other player in the nation and if he can tack on two more in the Rose Bowl against Oregon, he’ll break Sanders’ record.

The holidays can be stressful, and once the Christmas “season” hits, free time is precious. Thus, in the holiday spirit of selflessness, here is our annual rundown of the “attractiveness” of each of the 35 bowls, listed in reverse order, to help you best adjust your calendar around the holidays. 35. Kraft Fight Hunger, Illinois (6-6) vs. UCLA (6-7), Dec. 31: Neither has a coach. And UCLA had to get a waiver from the NCAA to be allowed to play in the game because it has a losing record. There is one positive: You get to spend New Year’s Eve in San Francisco, so drink a few Anchor Steams and hit all the great Italian restaurants in North Beach. 34. Music City Bowl, Mississippi State (6-6) vs. Wake Forest (6-6), Dec. 30: Mississippi State was 2-6 in SEC play. Wake is coming in off a 34point beatdown at the hands of Vanderbilt. 33. Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, Purdue (6-6) vs. Western Michigan (7-5), Dec. 27: Western Michigan certainly can throw the ball around but can’t play defense. Purdue lost to Rice. 32. BBVA Compass Bowl, Pitt (6-6) vs. SMU (7-5), Jan. 7: Will SMU coach June Jones be around to coach the Mustangs? This is the second season in a row Pitt will play in this game, so who, exactly, says bowls are a reward? 31. Beef O’Brady’s Bowl, Florida International (8-4) vs. Marshall (6-6), Dec. 20: FIU WR T.Y. Hilton is a big-time talent and this game is played at Tropicana Field. Other than that ... 30. Pinstripe Bowl, Iowa State (6-6) vs. Rutgers (8-4), Dec. 30: A Big 12 also-ran meets a Big East also-ran. One selling point, though: That Big 12 also-ran kept Oklahoma State out of the national title game. 29. Las Vegas Bowl, Arizona State (6-6) vs. Boise State (111), Dec. 22: Boise State is an excellent team stuck with an opponent who ... how can we say this nicely? . . . didn’t play as hard as it could’ve down the stretch. This will be the final game for Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson. Will his players ratchet up their intensity in an attempt to send him out a winner, or will it be business as usual? 28. New Mexico Bowl, Temple (8-4) vs. Wyoming (8-4), Dec. 17: Wyoming has had a surprisingly good season, and Temple has a strong rushing attack led by TB Bernard Pierce. This is the first bowl of the season, so it moves up a spot because of that. 27. Texas Bowl, Northwestern (6-6) vs. Texas A&M (6-6), Dec. 31: The potential exists for a lot of points. And when 6-6 teams get together, the potential for a lot of points means it might be worth tuning in, if just for a little while.

Heisman Continued from D1 But the competition has been so fierce that it’s been tough for Luck to hold onto his front-runner status. In fact, Griffin seemed to take the lead in the race over the last month of the season. The quarterback called RG3 by Baylor fans leads the nation in passer rating (192.3), with 3,998 yards and 36

SKIING

Surging Vonn finds respite on the slopes By Pat Graham The Associated Press

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Lindsey Vonn remains on top of her game despite the turmoil in her life. She dominated at Lake Louise last weekend, winning two World Cup downhills and a super-G by a combined margin of 3.82 seconds — a landslide in skiing. Her success comes in the midst of divorce proceedings from her husband of four years, Thomas Vonn, who also served as her adviser and personal coach. But if the tumult is affecting her, Vonn certainly isn’t showing it on the slopes. Now, the Olympic gold medalist returns to the comfort of home as she races in a rescheduled super-G on Wednesday at Beaver Creek. The Birds of Prey course is just five minutes from her place in Vail. “I really would love to win at home, so I’m going to look at the video and make sure in Beaver Creek that I clean some turns up and make sure I’m skiing a little more aggressive than I skied (Sunday),” Vonn said. That performance is going to be difficult to top. She crushed it in Lake Louise, winning her 11th race on that hill. So commanding has Vonn been at the venue that it’s now kiddingly become known as Lake Lindsey. With her three-day sweep, Vonn now has 45 career wins, leaving her one behind Austria’s Renate Goetschl for third on the career list. “This whole weekend I had a huge smile on my face,” Vonn said. A reprieve from what has been going on away from the slopes. Vonn announced her split Nov. 27, the same day she withdrew from a slalom in Aspen. She cited a back injury during training. Many wondered how she would fare without Thomas Vonn, who had become a rock in her life. He made sure she wasn’t overextending herself with appearances and interviews, helped with logistics and kept everything running smooth so Vonn could keep her focus on speeding down the mountain. A network of family, friends, coaches, teammates and even competitors has now stepped in and supported her through a difficult time. She also has this — the slopes. Skiing has always been her sanctuary, a place where she can retreat and forget about whatever is troubling her for a little while. “It’s where I go to be myself and to really enjoy life,” Vonn

said. “Up in Lake Louise, it was perfect timing for me to go up there to do what I love and ski fast. I just was focused. It took my mind off everything else. “This whole season is going to be a great chance for me to look at myself from a different perspective and to really learn more about myself. Skiing is just my happy place.” Last weekend was more than Vonn could have ever imagined. She won a downhill Friday by 1.95 seconds, her largest margin in that discipline. And with her win Sunday, Vonn earned the second three-day sweep of her career. She also had a hat trick at Haus im Ennstal, Austria, in January 2010. “I think I proved to myself and everyone else that I can ski well under the most extreme circumstances,” Vonn said. “It just gives me more personal strength.” With her performance in Lake Louise, Vonn also extended her lead in the World Cup standings to 422 points, opening a sizable gap on top rival Maria Hoefl-Riesch, who ended Vonn’s reign as overall champion last season. Once close friends, the bond between Hoefl-Riesch and Vonn became strained last season when Hoefl-Riesch blamed Vonn for not congratulating her on the overall victory. Steadily, their relationship

is on the mend. They began ironing their differences out in New Zealand during preseason training and chatted again in Lake Louise, which brought them even closer. “We wanted to be back as friends the way we used to be,” Vonn said. “We wanted to put everything aside and start over again. It’s been really great to have her support through all my personal struggles. She’s definitely been extremely supportive.” Vonn’s elated over having a super-G basically in her backyard. The race was moved to Beaver Creek because of a lack of snow in Val d’Isere, France. There’s also a men’s giant slalom today and a men’s slalom Thursday. The 27-year-old Vonn has never really raced on the hill, but did side-slip the course during the 1999 championships when she was a teenager. The only U.S. female skier who really has taken a racerelated run on the course is Resi Stiegler, a forerunner for the men’s super-G in 2007. And while being at home will be a boost for Vonn, it will also be a weight. “For me, the hardest thing about this race is the pressure and trying to do well for the home crowd,” Vonn said. “I always put a lot of pressure on myself anyway. I’m probably going to put too much pressure on myself to do well for everyone.”

Continued from D1 For the first two-thirds of each practice for the youth program, which take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. weekly through mid-March, players focus on skating skills and fundamentals. Twelveyear-old Spencer Wallace, Scott Wallace’s son, says a typical practice session includes skating around the less-than-full-size rink and stretching to warm up. Then the players perform passing and skating drills, he says, before finishing up with a scrimmage. Spencer is in the third generation of Wallaces who have been involved with ice hockey here in Central Oregon. Though the sport has a relatively small following in the area, its roots do go back dozens of years, a history in which Scott Wallace is pretty well versed. For well more than two decades, he says, his father, Roland “Wally” Wallace, operated local youth hockey and adult broomball (similar to ice hockey but played with broomlike sticks and a ball) programs at the skating rinks at Sunriver and at what was then The Inn of the Seventh Mountain (now Seventh Mountain Resort). “He’s the father of ice hockey, or skating, in Bend,” Scott Wallace says of his father, who is now 81. Before that, as a child, Wallace, now 49, learned to skate on ice located in Bend’s Juniper Park, where the 50-meter pool now sits. The ice sat on a slab of concrete that was sunk into the ground about 3 or 4 inches. The Bend Park & Recreation District, Wallace recalls, would turn on fire hoses to freeze over the slab during the winters, creating an ice rink that would last for two or three months each year. After living outside of Central Oregon for most of the 1980s and 1990s, Wallace moved back to Bend in 1998

and has been involved in the local hockey scene ever since. This year is his third running the youth program at the Sunriver rink. His kids were getting big enough that he “wanted to have something for them to do,” Wallace explains. The youth program, as Wallace explains, is “much more mellow” than the Steelheads group, which plays drop-in games from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Monday evenings. Both boys and girls are welcome to skate in the youth program. In fact, Wallace’s daughter Rachel has played with the youth group before. Women are also welcome to mix it up with the Steelheads, who play games of three-onthree and in which checking is not allowed. For kids like Jake Hodgson, 13, the youth program provides a place to keep playing ice hockey. The Sunriver resident picked up the sport about six years ago while living in Orange, Calif.

gram “kind of more relaxed, so it’s fun.” Youth players do not need to be the second coming of Sidney Crosby or be fully outfitted to participate. As far as equipment goes, players should turn out with their own skates and helmets, but the coaching staff can work with them for the other equipment, such as pads and gloves. (Hockey equipment is available online at some sporting goods stores.) And as for experience, not much is needed. For example, one of assistant coach Blaise Cacciola’s sons, Vince, 8, has been on skates before, but last Wednesday’s practice was his first time on the ice using a stick and a puck and with his hockey gear on. “He keeps telling us … ‘Bring your friends if they want to,’ ” Spencer Wallace says of his dad. “So yeah, you don’t really have to have any experience.” The youth hockey program is free to join for the rest of this month. Starting in January, the program will stage two five-week programs through the Bend park district. Scott Wallace estimates the cost to participate in the park district program will be about $50 or $60. And the more skaters, the merrier. Says Hodgson: “It would be more fun if we had a lot more people out here.” — Reporter: 541-383-0393, amiles@bendbulletin.com.

Reviled and revered by mankind through the ages, rodents are now prized pets in 5 million American households, according to the American Pet Products Association. “You can keep them in a small space, so they are great for apartments,” said Allison Assur, of Bend, a small animal expert with a national pet store chain for the past eight years. “Pocket pets don’t require the time commitment of, say, a dog, but you still get that ‘cute little friend’ experience.” “Rodents are really extremely clean,” Assur continued, “they groom themselves like cats and can be easy to litter train.” They are also extremely good at making babies, some becoming fertile at the tender age of 2 months, and are capable of producing litters of 10 or more several times a year, according to Jodie McDonald, Small Animal Department Manager at Petco in Bend. “Hamsters (for example) can come into season every two days,” McDonald continued. “They can be weaning babies, nursing babies and still be pregnant.” Unless owners want to breed their animals, she recommends keeping social rodents — all in the following sample except the hamster — together as same-sex pairs. While all rodents have the potential to spread some contagious diseases to humans, including colds, flu and E. coli, Assur has never known of a case transmitted from pets to their owners. Still, Petco’s care sheets specifically warn pregnant women and potential owners with compromised immune systems of the possibility of disease transmission from these animals. Disease prevention is the main reason good personal hygiene is essential for pocket pet owners. Washing hands is very important, before and after handling the animals,” McDonald said. Maintaining a clean environment is equally important, McDonald continued, as, “(pocket pets) are only as clean their habitats.”

All are cute and some are nippy; they come from all points on the globe. Here’s a sample of the warm, fuzzy pocket pets available in Bend.

n June, after 10 years in the Bend Senior Center, the United Senior Citizens of Bend found itself in need of a new home. The group’s president, Virginia Reddick, turned to Taffy Gleason, executive director of Bend’s Community Center. “I told her, ‘Come home,’” Gleason says. “She was distraught. Hugely.” The weekday lunch program that had also called the Bend Senior Center home for a decade also required a new location. “They didn’t have anyplace else to go,” Gleason says. The Bend Senior Center, owned and operated by the Bend Park & Recreation District, sought more room for other programs and activities appealing to the growing baby boomer population, as park district officials told The Bulletin in August. That same month, the lunch program, the volunteerrun, 400-member USCB, Tuesday dances and twicemonthly bingo games all moved in to the community center. “We wouldn’t have moved back without them,” Reddick says. Prior to the opening of the Bend Senior Center on Reed Market Road in 2001, the former church at 1036 N.E. Fifth St. — home to Bend’s Community Center since 2002 — was the Bend Senior Center.

Bend’s Community Center began hosting weekday lunches for seniors in August, and serves between 300 and 400 such meals weekly.

By 1976, the group, which started Dial-A-Ride in 1973 and operated it until 1986, had outgrown its bus station office, and so began renting a house on Irving Avenue. By 1978, its services had grown to include legal aid, classes and health projects including a blood pressure clinic. But there was also growing interest in starting a nutritional program; again, a bigger home would be needed to accommodate it. In 1979, the USCB bought the building at on Fifth Street from the Free Methodist Church, which was erecting a new home of its own. Originally built by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the mid-’30s, the structure was already getting along in age by the time USCB began calling it home. The organization raised funds for a nearly $140,000 addition; about $80,000 in labor and materials was donated. See Seniors / E6

TV & M ‘Anarchy’ guns it for finale “Sons of Anarchy� finale 10 tonight, FX By Eric Deggans St. Petersburg Times

Blink and you may miss the coolest moment in tonight’s season finale of FX’s high-octane drama, “Sons of Anarchy.� As a character sits in a jail cell, the TV plays a scene from “The Shield,� the high-octane FX series where Sons creatorexecutive producer Kurt Sutter worked before building his Shakespearean drama about a California biker gang (excuse me, motorcycle club). The move is complete Sutter, a subtle shout-out to reward fans and friends that adds extra flavor to an action-packed episode capping a completely compelling season. And it comes during an episode that wasn’t supposed to happen at all. But Sutter, as the show’s rebellious mad scientist, convinced the suits at FX to let him turn the last third of a planned 90-minute season finale into a new episode. It helps that Sons has been leading cable shows in ratings for viewers ages 18 to 49, even beating many network TV shows by leveraging a crackling season filled with blood and intrigue. This season is resolving storylines Sutter first hinted at in the show’s 2008 debut, as energetic hero Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam) realizes his stepfather and club leader Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) killed his biological father and tried to kill his wife after she learned about the murder. Last week, we saw Morrow barely survive being shot by the son of another club member he killed. Tonight, as police prepare to bust a high-stakes meeting among the club, Mexican drug cartel members and Irish drug runners, the question hangs: What can possibly come next? Sutter, known for his brutal

honesty both on Twitter and his blog Sutterink, was nice enough to answer some questions about all things Sons via email. Here’s his take on wrapping another murderous season with Jax and the boys. Deggans: Is this season about Jax realizing he can’t live a healthy life in the club or being forced to excise Clay’s evil from the club? Sutter: Yes Deggans: You’ve built some of the best antiheroes around. What’s the key to keeping people engaged by characters who can be racist, sexist, gun-running murderers? Sutter: No secret. It’s what all good dramas are supposed to have; real relatable characters. Whether they’re dealing meth, saving children from burning buildings or shooting guys in the head. If you open them up, show layers of vulnerabilities and flaws, it makes them accessible. You don’t have to like them; you just have to be drawn to them. Deggans: Your wife, Katey Sagal, plays the show’s matriarch and she has been through a lot, from sexual assault to the ultimate beatdown from Clay. The only living character to get it worse is the character you play, imprisoned club

member Otto Delaney. Are you guys just gluttons for punishment? Sutter: It’s not so much about punishing as it is showing the violence that comes with the life. It’s real. It happens. My goal on this show is to never let any bad deed go unkarmaed. S--- doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Violence begets violence. Rage begets rage. Betrayal begets betrayal. These are dangerous people making dangerous choices. This ain’t the f------ “Good Wife.� Deggans: Your new character, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lincoln Potter (Ray McKinnon), was wonderfully quirky; mysterious and human at the same time. Is he based on a real person? Sutter: We did the research on federal DAs. They are the new rock stars of (organized crime prosecution). We rooted the character in reality, gave him a backstory, then turned the idea on its head to make him more interesting and unpredictable (the same way I did with Forest Whitaker’s character on “The Shield�). Deggans: Any idea what project you’ll tackle after Sons ends? Sutter: I’ll continue in both features and TV. I want to direct a feature I wrote, Delivering Gen, which I realized I couldn’t do during a hiatus. That’s the first thing I’ll probably do when I finish Sons. Then hopefully do another show. I love TV.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

A  & A  

Airlines are thinking smaller as Americans getting bigger Dear Abby: This letter is to offer sympathy to “Trish in Louisiana� (Sept. 25), who was seated next to two large passengers on a three-hour flight. It has happened to me. The airlines control the size and weight of baggage, whether it’s checked or carry-on, and charge when it’s overweight. So why do they turn a blind eye when it comes to passengers who must endure being crowded out of the seats we have paid for? If airlines aren’t willing to screen passengers for size, perhaps they should provide a few rows of larger seats to accommodate them. Airlines have sacrificed comfort for economy to the point that the seats are simply too small. I’m an average- size woman, but I find the seats are barely large enough. They’re crowded so close together you can’t move your legs, and they don’t actually recline. I agree with your advice to speak up if you find yourself being squeezed. — Ellen in Las Cruces Dear Ellen: While your letter reflects the views of many readers, they ALL emphatically agree that airlines need to do a better job of customer service regarding the seating on passenger planes. My newspaper readers comment: Dear Abby: As America grows larger, airline seats grow smaller. Trish was right to be compassionate. If airlines treat large people (who are also paying customers) like dirt so they can turn a profit by squeezing passengers into every inch of space, they are WRONG. There are ways to be creative and not humiliate anyone. The flight attendant could have moved a child to her seat with Mom across the aisle. I recommend that flight attendants think along those lines, because having a gate attendant drag people off flights is not the best way to handle this and should only be a last resort. We’re all customers, and we all deserve to be

DEAR A B B Y treated with dignity. — Mary in Virginia Beach, Va. Dear Abby: The fault lies with airline management. They should specify up front in their ad campaigns that if the passengers’ dimensions exceed certain parameters, they must buy two tickets. — Comfortable On the Ground Dear Abby: My heart goes out to all three. I am a plussize woman and my husband is “normal� size. His field is marketing, and I showed him your letter. He said recent surveys have shown that onethird of people who refuse to fly do so because of the tight seating, and not fear of an accident. Airlines pack people in like sardines to make more money, and it is resented. I quit flying years ago because of claustrophobia. If I had to fly now, I’d buy a firstclass ticket. I wonder why the planes don’t have six or eight seats in the back of coach that are larger and cost more money, but less than first class. Something has to be done to make flying safer and more comfortable for everyone. Surely we have the intellectual capacity to solve these problems. — No Longer a Frequent Flier in New York Dear Abby: It’s unfortunate that Trish didn’t stick to her guns and continue with her complaint. I believe airlines should head these problems off at the gate. They have a box to check the size of carryon luggage; they should also have a passenger seat to check the size of people. If someone doesn’t fit, then that person must buy an additional ticket for a second seat. — Refuses to be Squished — Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011 By Jacqueline Bigar Understand that negativity breeds more negativity. At times this year you could feel pushed to the max. Instead of a knee-jerk reaction, why not figure out what is creating this automatic response and what you can do to eliminate it? Perhaps you need more mutual support or more time to yourself. Even if you see no way to reach either goal, honor the feelings. You will find someone or a path to fulfill more of your needs. If you are single, you could meet someone incredibly upbeat, happy and close to perfect. Careful — make sure you are not projecting. If you are attached, the two of you could have a very special year if you would just lighten up. TAURUS is anchored but can be dull at times. 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) HHH You might have a tendency to go overboard and lose some control. Your perspective about a boss, parent or authority figure might be changing rapidly. How you see a situation could transform as well. Tonight: Treat yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You wake up well. Stop and consider revamping your day accordingly. You could be tired of dealing with the same old routine. Right now would be a perfect time for some variation. Go for what you want. Tonight: Only what you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Let others take a stance. Understanding where they are coming from could make all the difference in how you relate to them. Grow past an immediate hassle. Take all the time you need to reflect on what change you would like to make and how you would like to make it. Tonight: Get plenty of R and R. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Meetings point out the path to success. You understand what is happening and what is necessary to make it happen. Your sense of humor emerges when a friend rolls right into a situation. Tonight: Take the lead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You could be stuck on a certain point or having to have someone agree with you. Don’t push yourself too hard, and remain sensitive to a changing situation. You cannot format others’ reactions.

Accept them, and you will be happier. Tonight: A must appearance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Look past the obvious. Detach from a problem — that is the first step in gaining new insight. You will evolve in a new direction through accepting what is going on and letting go of your judgments. Tonight: Put on a great piece of Christmas music. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Relate one-on-one with others. You’ll gain greater insight by letting others feel secure. Allowing this type of situation to evolve, another person feels more secure and becomes more authentic. Tonight: Have a long-overdue chat during dinner. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Defer to others. Listen to news that is forthcoming and remain open to a loved one, friend or family member who has a great impact on your thinking. Note what goes on with this person when you no longer lead. Tonight: Sort through your invitations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You move from creativity to effective ingenuity applied to key situations. A pile of projects might be on your desk or mind. Apply yourself just a little, and you might be delighted by how much you get done. Tonight: Think of holiday musts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might not be saying what is on your mind, but your body language and smile give you away. Many of you will have romance on your mind. You might be up for a risk. Take your time rethinking a decision that could cause you a problem. Tonight: Lighten up the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Others could judge you as being solemn and/or quiet. You need some time for thought. Look at where you have made a judgment that ultimately just might not work for you or your life. Feel free to move forward. Tonight: Head home. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Pressure builds at work or with someone you need to answer to. A discussion flourishes, and you gain a better rapport with this person. Stop lecturing or saying things for impact. Stay open to what you are hearing. It might change a goal. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Gifts for pet lovers

Rodents Continued from E1 They are social, vocal animals and purr like cats when content (or upset). They are crepuscular, meaning they are most active near dawn and dusk, and come in many colors and fur length. After their introduction to Europe in the 1500s, guinea pigs became a favorite pet of royalty, including Queen Elizabeth I, of England. Later, they were used widely for biomedical research, spawning the epithet “guinea pig,” meaning an unwilling or ignorant test subject. They don’t bite and are excellent pets for youngsters.

HAMSTERS Natural range: Eurasia Diet: Herbivores Life span: Up to three years Size at maturity: Up to 4 inches Special Notes: Hamsters are solitary, nocturnal animals that run an average of two miles a night. They have a stub of a tail and are very clean. Hoarders, they stuff their pouched cheeks with food, which they deposit in various hiding places. Hamsters come in many colors and sizes. Biting is their first defense when threatened, so they may not be appropriate for young children.

Katherine Bell says her sister goes wild buying Christmas gifts for their three dogs and two cats. But it was Bell who bought Kaya the golden retriever her first Christmas outfit this year. In a pet store with Kaya, Bell spotted the red-andwhite Christmas dress and thought: “This is so cute, but it is so ridiculous.” About half of U.S. pet owners will buy holiday gifts for their pets this year, according to an Associated Press-Petside.com poll conducted in October. Sixty-eight percent of pets will get toys, and 45 percent will get edible treats. Spending is predicted to be up slightly, with shoppers likely to spend an average of $46 on gifts for pets compared to $41 last year. Seventy-two percent said they would spend $30 or less. While dogs and cats will find new collars in their stockings in addition to toys and food, don’t forget the pet lovers on your gift list. • Dog wardrobe closet (Pltd/Wood Furniture, $90$125). Check with your local pet fashion outlet or DazzleDogDelight.com. •“Crafting With Cat Hair” (Quirk Books, $14.95). This book isn’t a joke. Japanese cat lover Kaori Tsutaya has combined her interests for a quirky book with easy projects. • Pet blueprint (Animal Blueprint Co., $110). The 18by-24-inch cat and dog portraits are created in a 1950s blueprint style with schematics and design notes specific to each breed. • Bubbletastic Dog Bubble Machine (Bubbletastic, $26). Who will be more fascinated by the baconscented bubbles? • 6 Packs/9 Lives calendar (Browntrout Publishers, $14). Men and cats. What more do you need to know? Found Animals Foundation hopes the sassy images will raise awareness of the need for pet adoptions.

Volunteers Heidi Renoud, 42, left, and Amy Chadwick, 35, both of Bend, prepare a casserole during lunch at Bend’s Community Center.

Seniors Continued from E1 Construction began in 1980 and added nearly 4,000 square feet, doubling the space and adding offices, a kitchen and dining room in order to provide a square meal for the seniors. The USCB had proudly paid off its debt and burned its mortgage by February 1986. The Fifth Street location would remain its home until the “new” Bend Senior Center on Reed Market Road opened in November 2001. At the time, Reddick said of the new Senior Center, “It’s a very warm building … we want everyone to feel welcome there.”

‘Nowhere else to go’ No one would have predicted that nearly 10 years later, the USCB would again find itself in search of a home. The USCB had helped fund the Reed Market location, in large part by selling its old home, which reopened a year later as Bend’s Community Center. “They truly had nowhere else to go,” Gleason says of the USCB’s move back to Fifth Street. “Our mission here is to (help) the low-income and the needy. The low-income seniors certainly fell into our mission.” Reddick says that “the seniors were very upset (with) moving the meal site, but we did a good job with moving. There was a lot of work that went into that.” The community center had just two months to get ready for the move-in, and many upgrades are needed to further accommodate the influx of seniors and to serve 300-400 lunches a week, Gleason says. That’s separate from the roughly 1,200 meals served weekly to homeless and lowincome citizens; some seniors also partake of those meals.

Need for upgrades Some improvements to the center have been made already, including the installation of new cabinets in the serving area to store plastic plates and bowls. Most urgent is the need for a new walk-in refrigerator, which would have to be built outside the existing kitchen. Because the senior lunches and the three Sunday meals are funded separately, the food for the programs must be labeled and stored separately as well. “We’re needing to build a second cooler so that we can keep the food completely separate, so there’s no confusion between the two programs,” says Gleason, who adds that the cooler will cost $25,000. The building also needs awnings for inclement weather, which will cost about $8,000, as well as new railings on its front steps. Better lighting is also needed. “It’s hard for them to read their bingo cards,” Gleason says. USCB’s members range in age from early 60s to 90s, which means “we’re trying

to essentially ‘senior-proof’ this building,” Gleason says. “We’re doing everything we can to address the problems as they arise, because we’ve never had seniors before. But we’re learning.” Monetary donations are welcome. For some seniors who no longer cook, lunch is the only hot meal they’ll have that day. Says Gleason, “We try to not just meet the minimum standards. We want to give them the best possible food we can.”

Critical contact In addition to rancor over the move of the lunch program, some USCB members were angry that Bend Park & Recreation took over the building the seniors helped get built in the first place. The USCB has retained the services of attorney Bill Buchanan, of Karnopp Peterson, LLP, to look into the possibility of being paid for its efforts to get the Senior Center built. “We’re looking for ways to bring this community together, and give the United Senior Citizens of Bend a place at the table,” Buchanan says. Yet at the same time, Reddick says, “They’re happy here” at Bend’s Community Center. “They love the food. It’s great.” Prior to moving to Bend’s Community Center, food for the weekday meal was prepared by Central Oregon Council on Aging in Redmond. The lunches are still paid for by a federal grant that COCOA administers, Gleason explains, but now the meals are prepared on-site by volunteers working in the Community Center’s kitchen. The meals are free to low-income seniors, $6.50 for other folks, such as family members who may want to dine with loved ones. “Let’s put it this way: It almost breaks even,” Gleason says. Back at Bend Senior Center, lunch was restricted to a 40minute window, which could feel rushed even for much younger, fleeter eaters. It’s now offered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and that means more quality time, say Gleason and Reddick. “People can come in any time for a coffee and a roll, but then they can have a meal. They’re not rushed. They visit, and they’re very happy here,” Reddick says. “Who better to understand a senior than an-

other senior?” More elderly are coming in for the meals, they say, and are taking an interest in volunteering with the community center’s homeless and low-income services, which include showers and free Sunday meals. “That’s one of the other perks,” Gleason says. With fewer volunteer opportunities at the Senior Center, some seniors had drifted away. “They lost the sense of community that they used to have … Now that they’re back here, they’re able to volunteer in a wide variety of ways.” “And they came back,” interjects Reddick. Continues Gleason, “So many of them have health issues, they need to find ways that they can give that works for them.” On Thursday, USCB board member Elaine Swanzy dined at a table with Reddick and Earl Williams. Swanzy proudly brought up the fact that she does laundry and folds towels for the homeless who shower at the center. Along with opportunities to contribute, the social contact the center is providing is crucial for older seniors. “So many people are alone and isolated, and this place is providing a place to be, and be known and to have a good time,” Reddick says. Gleason says, “We took this on because we care. We don’t have the finances to pay for what we need to do to make the seniors safer and all of that. We’re hoping the public will step in and help us.”

Natural range: Eurasia and North Africa Diet: Omnivores Life span: Up to five years Size at maturity: Up to 10 inches Special notes: Once known only as “desert rats,” gerbils are nocturnal, meaning they are most active at night. They are burrowers and love playing in tubes and boxes. These social animals need frequent dust baths — an opportunity to groom and clean their fur by rolling in dust — are very clean and have little odor.

CHINCHILLAS Natural range: Andes Mountains of South America Diet: Herbivores Life span: Up to 10 years Size at maturity: Up to 12 inches Special notes: Wild chinchillas are rare due to overhunting for their fur; today, pets are farm raised. Their fur is extremely dense, with as many as 240 hairs per follicle. They are social, inquisitive and gentle. Chinchillas can jump six feet high, and need a large enclosure. They should never be bathed in water — this can kill them, as their fur is virtually impossible to dry — but require frequent dust baths. They have exacting dietary requirements.

RATS Natural range: Everywhere but Antarctica Diet: Omnivores Life span: Up to five years Size at maturity: 8-plus inches Special notes: Rats have generally gotten a bad rap. Rather than disease-ridden, sneaky parasites, they can be clean, intelligent and loving pets. Rats were fashionable with upper-class women in Victorian England, who often kept their beribboned companions in their blouse pockets, tethered with little leashes. Rats have proportionately more DNA dedicated to the sense of smell than any other known animal and are now being trained to detect land mines and tuberculosis in Africa. They are nocturnal, rarely bite, and an excellent choice for youngsters.

MICE Natural range: Everywhere but Antarctica Diet: Herbivores Life span: Up to three years Size at maturity: Up to 3 inches. Special notes: Domesticated mice can be playful and loving. These nocturnal pets are careful groomers and never need bathing. Like rats, their sense of smell is exquisite. Israeli scientists have trained mice to detect explosives; mice are said to be more accurate than dogs at the task.

Peppers Stuffed with Mushrooms, Onions and Sausage.

Peppers have all the right stuff(ing)

By Leon Pantenburg For The Bulletin

The snow falls, wind blows and the idea of gardening or plant care gets shoved onto the back burner. After all, there can’t be much to do, and the plants are dormant, so they don’t need any ongoing care, right? Wrong. If you live in Central Oregon and are not watering your trees and shrubs throughout the cold months, then you may lose them in the spring. Moisture is critical because new or non-established trees or shrubs can dry out over the winter. Central Oregon has one of the most challenging environments in the country for growing anything, says Linda Stephenson, owner of L&S Gardens in La Pine. “If you’ve planted a new tree or shrub this year, you need to continue watering throughout the winter,” Stephenson said. “The biggest detriment to a plant thriving next spring will be if it goes into the winter dry.” Growing anything in Central Oregon is a challenge, as gardeners soon discover, but there are several unique factors that affect plant growth. This area isn’t called desert for nothing. Central Oregon gets different amounts of precipitation during the winter, depending on the location. Redmond is the driest, with about eight inches per year, while La Pine is the wettest, with approximately 22 inches per year, according to the Oregon State University Extension Service. Most of this precipitation occurs in the winter in the form of snow. “Our snow is even dry,” Stephenson says. “It tends to be light and fluffy and there isn’t a lot of moisture in it.” Added to the lack of moisture is the poor soil structure. Most Central Oregon soils are coarse, according to OSU, and have a sandy texture. See Watering / F5

head into our beautiful forest and cut down a Christmas tree. After that, I would decorate it and my home on a budget. I’d still be allowed experts in the field to help me with the tasks. How hard could that be? Gulp. That was the wrong question to ask of someone who is neither artistic nor handy. I admit it: I am downright design challenged. But first I had to get the Christmas tree. I felt ready. After all, there are millions of trees out there, just ready for my Paul Bunyon doppelganger to chop down. As fate would have it, my husband was conveniently out of the country on business and the kids were in school, so it was up to me to go get the tree. But I’m not a complete fool; I know my limitations. It’s good to have loyal friends you can count on to lend a hand. Not only is Charlotte Van Valkenburg my good friend, she also happens to be something of a Christmas tree expert, as she and her husband have been cutting their own for at least a decade. She not only volunteered to help with the tree hunt, she also enlisted her visiting parents from Missouri to help. See Christmas / F4

Editor’s Note: This is an installment of the bimonthly feature DIY Adventures, in which reporter Penny Nakamura tackles a home project and reports about the process.

A pepper plant all decked out for harvest — the riot of color blushing from rich emerald green to luscious purple, red and orange — is a grower’s ultimate reward. Until late autumn’s frost moves the show from garden to kitchen that is. Indeed, peppers perform well on many culinary levels: as a snappy, colorful addition to a platter of crudite; roasted and pureed into a rich soup or zesty romesco sauce; stir-fried into tender submission; or simply pickled. But I grew up on my mother’s stuffed peppers. Nothing fancy. Just a classic Spanish rice and ground beef filling, tomatoey-rich, with a crusty layer of cheddar cheese on top. For a youngster hostile to the thought of vegetables as a food source, those stuffed peppers represented a non-threatening form of vegetable eatery. And so, when the weather’s brisk, stuffed peppers transport me back to the comfort of my childhood kitchen — a warm and cozy place indeed. Of course, no two pepper recipes are the same. Just like so many other dishes that rely on a cook’s imagination and whim, stuffed peppers come in many colors, flavors and textures. Hence, the recipes that follow are mere road maps for discovery. You will inevitably inject your personal style into a given pepper dish based on all of the factors that go into making you the kind of cook you are. But before heading in that direction, here are a few things to consider: • Think about the pepper as a vessel. Do you want it to have a little firmness once it’s been stuffed and cooked, or are you more interested in a soft exterior? Some recipes instruct you to parboil the peppers before stuffing, which will produce the soft outer shells, so if you are aiming for a crisper experience, skip the parboiling maneuver. • Rice is one of the most traditional fillings, but there are plenty of other non-meat fillings to consider, including pasta, potatoes, barley, couscous, quinoa, artisan bread, corn and winter squash. • It’s easy to convert a meat filling into a vegetarian filling, so be flexible when reading through a recipe. With just a small amount of tweaking, you may be able to alter a promising recipe into a perfect offering by switching from chicken broth to vegetable broth, for example, adding tofu in place of ground meat, folding bits of shredded cheese into a basic rice filling instead of the chicken it calls for … you get the idea!

Next week: Flavored vodka is a new twist on an old favorite

Peppers Stuffed with Mushrooms, Onions and Sausage

Peppers Stuffed with Wild Rice, Cranberries, Hazelnuts and Hickory-Baked Tofu Makes 4 to 6 servings. The first time I had this filling it was stuffed into delicata squash halves. Very delicious! But the filling is equally wonderful inside a pepper and slightly less filling. It would make a lovely presentation on your holiday party buffet.

Makes 4 servings. If you don’t want to use pork sausage, consider turkey or chicken sausage, or even ground chicken or turkey with a little extra seasonings (such as thyme, basil and rosemary).

4 lg or 6 med sweet bell peppers 4 TBS butter 1½ C wild rice 3¾ C canned or homemade vegetable or chicken broth Heaping ¼ tsp salt 3 TBS olive oil 1 lg yellow onion, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 lg ribs celery, finely chopped 1 lg carrot, peeled and finely chopped

4 lg sweet bell peppers 12 oz well-seasoned bulk pork sausage 2 C chopped yellow onion ¼ lbs mushrooms, finely chopped (a food processor is okay) 1 C finely chopped celery 1 C soft bread crumbs (preferably made from a sourdough French bread) ¼ tsp salt ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper ¾ C chicken broth ¾ C dry white wine (such as pinot gris or Sauvignon Blanc) or dry sherry Slice the tops off the peppers and remove all ribs and seeds. Cut a very thin slice from the base to help the peppers stand up. Finely chop the fleshy portions of the tops and bottoms that you sliced away from the whole peppers (these will be sautéed with the other vegetables). In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium-high heat, breaking the meat up as it cooks with a spatula or flat-edged wooden spoon. Spoon off any fat that has accumulated. If the pan seems very dry, add some or all of the olive oil, along with the onion, mushroom, celery and reserved sweet bell peppers, and sauté until the mushrooms release their moisture and most of it has cooked off, which will take about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the bread crumbs. Adjust the salt and pepper, then spoon the stuffing into the pepper shells, mounding it slightly for an attractive effect. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the peppers in a shallow, oven-proof dish or casserole that holds them snugly. Pour the broth and wine into the dish, then cover it with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees, remove the foil, and continue cooking until the peppers are softened and browned. Baste each pepper frequently with the cooking liquid during the final stages. Just prior to serving, spoon additional liquid over them.

Jan Roberts-Dominguez finds bell peppers a good subject for painting as well as a delicious recipe ingredient.

Orzo Stuffed Sweet Bells Makes 4 servings. Orzo is used instead of rice for a different twist to an old favorite. 4 sweet bell peppers ¾ lbs of lean ground beef or ground chicken ½ yellow onion, chopped 3 cloves garlic, finely minced 3 TBS fresh basil (or 1 TBS dried) 1 TBS fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dried)

1 TBS Worcestershire sauce ¾ tsp salt ¼ tsp cayenne pepper Freshly ground pepper to taste 1 C cooked orzo 1½ C canned tomato sauce 1 C grated Parmesan cheese ½ C grated medium or sharp cheddar (or Monterey jack)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Slice the tops off the peppers and remove all ribs and seeds. Cut a very thin slice from the base to help the peppers stand up. Finely chop the fleshy portions of the tops and bottoms that you sliced away from the whole peppers (these will be sauteed along with the other vegetables). If you want the pepper shells to turn out very soft, blanch them in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and drain. Place the peppers cut sides up in a pie plate or shallow casserole that is lightly coated with cooking spray or oil. In a medium skillet over medium heat, saute the beef until it begins to brown and release its juices. Add the onion, garlic and the chopped sweet pepper. Continue cooking until the onions are soft and the meat is lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the basil, oregano, Worcestershire, salt, cayenne and freshly ground pepper. Stir to blend, then fold in the cooked orzo. Add ½ cup of the Parmesan and ¼ cup of the cheddar (reserve the rest for topping). Spoon the mixture into the pepper shells. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce on top of each pepper, then sprinkle each one with a portion of the remaining Parmesan and cheddar cheeses. Pour the remaining tomato sauce into the baking dish around the peppers. Bake until the filling is very hot and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. About mid-way through the baking process, spoon additional tomato sauce that has been cooking over the tops of the peppers.

1 TBS minced fresh sage 1 TBS minced fresh parsley 1 C chopped roasted hazelnuts (see note) 1 package (6 oz) hickorybaked tofu, cut into ¼-inch dice (see note) ¾ C sweetened dried cranberries ¾ C grated Pecorino Romano cheese Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Slice the tops off the peppers and remove all ribs and seeds. Cut a very thin slice from the base to help the peppers stand up. Combine the rice, vegetable broth and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, partially cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, about 40 minutes. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Swirl to coat the pan, then add the onion, garlic, celery and carrot until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Cover the pan, adjust the heat to medium-low, and cook the vegetables until crisp-tender, about 5 more minutes. Add the sage, thyme, and parsley and sauté 1 more minute; remove from heat. In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice with the sautéed vegetables, tofu, hazelnuts, cranberries and Pecorino Romano. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more salt and pepper as needed. Mound the rice mixture into the peppers, dividing it evenly. Dot the surface of each stuffed pepper with the butter. Bake the peppers in a preheated 350-degree oven until heated through and lightly browned on the surface, about 20 minutes. Thinkstock Note on roasting hazelnuts: Bake raw hazelnut kernels in a 350 degree oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. They will smell very fragrant. Remove from oven and let cool, then skin them by rubbing the nuts in a clean kitchen towel, or by placing the nuts in a 1-quart plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and shaking the nuts vigorously until the skins fall away from the nuts. Spread the nuts onto a wide pan, go outside and blow away the skins. Note on hickory-baked tofu: Unlike fresh tofu, which is packaged in liquid, baked tofu has a firmer, dryer texture because much of the moisture has baked off. You can buy it in markets where the emphasis is on regional, organic foods. Teriyaki baked tofu is somewhat easier to find and is an appropriate substitution. But you can also bake your own tofu. Start with firm or extra firm, cut it into ½-inch thick slices, blot each piece dry (although it will remain relatively wet until it’s baked), then pour on a marinade — either teriyaki-based, or some sort of barbecue sauce. Marinate for several hours or overnight, then lift it from the marinade, place in a lightly greased baking dish and bake in a 375 degree oven, turning once, until both sides are somewhat crusty and the center is tender, but still somewhat moist. This usually takes about 40 minutes. You can bake tofu ahead and refrigerate for several days until ready to use. It’s really good stuff and even makes a great snack, so bake extra! — Adapted from “The Thanksgiving Table,” by Diane Morgan

Malbec: A red wine that’s soft, sweet and user-friendly By Fred Tasker McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Thinkstock

Take a chocolate-covered cherry candy, turn it somehow into a red wine, and you’d have malbec — maybe the world’s most userfriendly red wine. The more inexpensive ones are soft and sweet, good starter reds for those who only drink white but

want to expand their horizons and find a wine to go with a burger or steak. Malbecs are good with spicy barbecue because of their sweet fruit. Good with chicken, spaghetti with red sauce or even tuna because of their soft tannins. The more powerful, somewhat more expensive malbecs have the big, ripe tannins to go well with

grilled steak or chicken, even that holiday roast goose. Highly recommended: • 2008 Clos de los Siete Malbec Blend, Canton de Tunuyan, Mendoza, Argentina: powerful, smooth and aromatic, with aromas and flavors of black plums, spice and mocha, big, ripe tannins, long and smooth finish; $18.

• 2010 Bodega Elena de Mendoza Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina: deep purple hue, aromas and flavors of black raspberries and dark chocolate, soft tannins, very smooth; $11. • 2008 Pulenta Estate Gran Malbec, by Paul Hobbs, Mendoza, Argentina: inky hue, hints of flowers and oak aroma, spicy black plum flavors, ripe tannins; $40.

Sweet Bell Peppers Stuffed with a Risotto of Barley, Wild Mushrooms and Smoky Bacon Makes 12 to 14 servings. You can easily cut this recipe in half. But because it makes such an outstanding side dish for a crowd (again, consider it for your holiday party menus), I’ve left it in the serving size for which I originally created. You see, it was designed to feed a gang of barley researchers from around the world who were convening at Oregon State University this summer for a conference. The barley risotto is rich in earthysmoky-cheesy-nutty flavors, and was a major hit among the scientists. Stuffing this heavenly mixture into a pepper adds another level of flavor and texture. Plus, it’s a great make-ahead dish since you can prepare the risotto up to three days ahead, and even stuff the peppers up to 24 hours ahead. Then it’s just a matter of baking them 40 minutes prior to serving. FOR THE RISOTTO: ½ lbs smoked bacon, thin sliced and cut into ¼-inch pieces ½ C butter 4 C chopped yellow onion 2 C (16 oz) pearled barley (see note) 2/3 C dry white wine (such as pinot gris or pinot blanc) 8 C chicken broth 1 oz (1 C) dried porcini mushroom pieces (see note) 2/3 C grated Parmesanio Reggiano Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste FOR THE STUFFED PEPPERS: 6 or 7 lg sweet bell peppers (green, red, yellow or orange) Olive oil (for brushing on the skins of the peppers) Prepare the risotto up to 3 days ahead of serving: In large, heavy-bottomed pot, saute the bacon over medium heat until richly browned. Remove bacon with slotted spoon and reserve for later. Spoon off all but 4 tablespoons of the bacon grease. Add the butter and the onions to the pan and sauté over medium heat until the onions have softened and turned slightly golden. Stir in the barley, wine, broth and prepared mushrooms. Stir and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the barley has absorbed most of the liquid and is very tender. It should have a creamy character, but not “soupy,” and definitely not overly dry — just like risotto. Remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan, along with the reserved bacon pieces. To prepare the peppers for stuffing: Using a very sharp chef’s knife, and beginning at the base of each pepper, cut lengthwise from its base through its stem, creating two equal halves, each half containing a portion of the stem, if possible, so they all look equally charming. Gently remove the seeds and ribs from the insides of each half. Stuff each half with a portion of the risotto, mounding the filling inside each pepper half. The peppers can be stuffed up to 24 hours ahead and refrigerated until you’re ready to bake them. About 1 hour before serving, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brush the outer surface of the peppers and the top of the rice with a light coating of olive oil and bake them until hot and golden, about 40 minutes. Note on pearled barley: You will find boxes and packages of “pearled” barley in the grocery aisle where the rice and other grains are sold. It is also usually available in the bulk foods section of a well-stocked market. Note on porcini mushrooms: I don’t reconstitute the dried mushrooms, but I do chop them before adding to the pot. I use a food processor and just run the motor in quick bursts so most of the pieces are about ¼- to ½-inch in dimension; some can be smaller. But you want to avoid very large pieces so that the mushroom flavor is evenly distributed.

Exploring new frontiers in salad

Chanterelles and other ingredients are destined to end up in a mushroom soup. The differences between farm-harvested food and wild-foraged food can often correspond to depth of flavor, such as a wild mushroom tasting deep and earthy in a way no ordinary button mushroom can.

Wild mushrooms make the soup By David Tanis New York Times News Service

Cool fall weather brings to mind woodsy flavors. Maybe it’s the smell of autumn leaves and damp soil, coupled with the occasional sunbeam. You want something hearty bubbling away on the stove. As I prowled the market the other day, wondering what might go into a simmering pot, a pile of golden chanterelles seemed destined to be turned into soup. I decided to add a hint of parsnip for its complementary sweetness, then grabbed a couple of onions, some thyme and some parsley. There’s a difference between farm-harvested food and wild-foraged food that often corresponds to depth of flavor. This is certainly the case with mushrooms. A wild mushroom always tastes deep and earthy in a way no ordinary button mushroom can. Though many kinds of mushroom can be cultivated, the wild mushrooms we prize the most, like chanterelles, morels and porcini, must be collected by hand. Lest you think wild mushroom foraging is a simple idyllic walk in the woods,

basket in hand, take it from me that this is most often not the case. Wild mushrooms pop up according to their own rules, when conditions are correct, and the sunshine-moisture ratio is just so. While a lucky hunter does sometimes happen upon a bonanza cluster of easy-access beauties, far more likely is the very unglamorous experience of crawling on your belly through the moss and mud, dodging thorny branches, and generally getting rather cold and soggy. And it can take years to build up the experience required to tell the edible mushrooms from the deadly ones. Hence the price: You’re paying an expert to roam the forest and bring back the goods. Never mind. This wild mushroom soup needs just a half-pound, along with little boost from dried ones. For a creamy texture (but without dairy, except a little butter), the soup is pureed, and a wild mushroom crouton tops it off. If you do want a touch of real cream in your cream-ofwild-mushroom, add a drizzle of crème fraîche.

Creamy Wild Mushroom and Parsnip Soup Makes 4 to 6 servings. 2 TBS butter 2 med onions, sliced, about 2C 2 sm parsnips, peeled and chopped 1 sm carrot, peeled and chopped 1 thyme branch, plus 1 tsp thyme leaves, finely chopped 1 bay leaf Salt and pepper 6 C chicken or vegetable

LOS ANGELES — Wellthumbed and food-splattered pages may be the fate of the latest compilation of recipes from The Good Housekeeping team. The hefty, neatly organized and deliciously photographed “The Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen Cookbook — Essential Recipes for Every Home Cook” (Hearst Books, $29.95) will appeal to home chefs looking for one-volume inspiration. Foodstuffs are pricey and time is precious, so the assur-

ance that recipes are at least triple-tested for success should be a comfort. The collection includes portions of recipes published in other Good Housekeepingspecific title cookbooks, such as “Budget Dinners!,” so there isn’t a basic meatball recipe, for example. Strong points include an eclectic group of recipes — some with international appeal, as in the Israeli Couscous with Currants Salad and Indian Cauliflower Curry Stew — and the sections for breakfast and brunch, meatless and weeknight meals.

Recipes have guideline icons for 30-minute or less, heart-healthy, low-calorie, make-ahead and slow cooker. The opening “Basics” section is a good guide to equipment for setting up a first-time kitchen; rules for cutting and measuring; food safety; setting a proper table; and a brief on types of wines. This general cookbook would be a good choice for beginners looking for tasty but basic recipes and also as a spark to pursue specific genre cookbooks, and for seasoned cooks looking for a fresh take on traditional favorites.

It all started with a raw kale salad I sampled at a restaurant several years ago, showered in bread crumbs and anchovy-garlic dressing. A salad of raw Brussels sprouts with pecorino and walnuts came next, followed by a raw beet slaw with orange. Everywhere I looked, the latest in vegetable fashion seemed to be serving things raw that were once generally cooked. I like this trend. The salads are appealing — crunchy, full-flavored, sprightly — and easy to make, with no cooking required. The only potentially tricky part is procuring truly fresh, tender vegetables. The older and tougher they are, the chewier and less pleasant to experience in the raw. Once I started expanding my uncooked-salad horizons beyond lettuce, it was hard to stop. Every young, supple vegetable that came into reach was potential salad fodder. I discovered the joys of raw chard, raw corn, raw butternut squash and, perhaps most surprisingly, raw turnips. I sampled this last delicacy at the Greenmarket, where Ray Bradley, one of my favorite farmers, was carving up some kind of oblong white root with a pocketknife. He handed me a chunk. It was as juicy and crisp as a radish, with a similar snap. But the flavor was sugary and soft, not at all spicy. I assumed it was some kind of mild daikon. The farmer shook his head. “Turnip,” he said succinctly.

A shaved raw turnip salad with arugula and prosciutto.

Now, I like roasted and braised turnips well enough, but I can’t say I crave them very often. Raw turnips, however, are magical — as gentle as carrots but juicier, with a very slight tang that makes the sweetness even more pronounced. Since that day, I’ve been eating the majority of my turnips raw. Usually, I just peel them, cut them into cubes and drizzle them with olive oil. When they are set out on a plate for snacking, I can polish off an entire bunch with my predinner cocktail, in lieu of olives or nuts. In this salad, I use a mandoline to slice small turnips, about 11⁄2 inches in diameter, into gossamer rounds, then toss them with peppery arugula, slivers of soft prosciutto and a honey-laced red wine vinegar dressing. It’s simple and straightforward, but the raw turnips make it unexpected. At least for now. I suspect raw turnip salad might soon be joining raw kale salad on menus everywhere. And that would be a very good thing.

Shaved Turnip Salad with Arugula and Prosciutto Makes 4 servings. 4 tsp red wine vinegar 1 ⁄4 tsp fine sea salt 2 tsp honey 1 ⁄4 C extra virgin olive oil Pepper

4 sm turnips, about 5 oz, peeled 8 C arugula, wild if possible 4 oz thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into bite-size pieces

In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar and salt until the salt dissolves. Whisk in the honey, oil and pepper. Using a mandoline or sharp knife, slice the turnips into paper-thin rounds. In a large bowl, combine turnips, arugula and prosciutto. Toss with the dressing. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

broth, more if necessary 2 TBS chopped dried morel or porcini mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 15 minutes, then drained 2 TBS olive oil 1 ⁄2 lb chanterelles or other wild or cultivated mushrooms, in roughly 1⁄8 -inch slices 2 garlic cloves, minced 6 slices day-old baguette 2 TBS chopped parsley Crème fraîche, optional.

Melt the butter in a deep heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium heat. Add the onions, parsnips, carrot, thyme branch and bay leaf. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add the broth and the soaked dried mushrooms. Bring to a boil, then adjust the heat to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil over high heat in a wide skillet. When the oil is hot, add the chanterelles, stirring with a wooden spoon, allowing them to brown a bit. Season with salt and pepper, then turn the heat to medium and sauté 5 to 7 minutes, until the mushrooms are cooked through. Add the garlic and thyme leaves and cook 1 minute more. Transfer ½ cup of the cooked chanterelles to a small skillet and add the rest to the soup. Let the pot simmer until the parsnips and carrot are quite tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaf and thyme branch. Puree the soup in a blender and strain through a fine-meshed sieve. Thin with more broth if it is too thick, and correct the seasoning. Keep hot. Warm the reserved mushrooms. Toast the baguette slices lightly and put a spoonful of mushrooms on each. Ladle the hot soup into bowls. Top each bowl with a mushroom toast, a little chopped parsley, and a drizzle of crème fraîche if you like.

Inexpensive tips

Let the fun begin I was conflicted about cutting down a perfectly good tree in the forest. We are so blessed in Central Oregon to have all these beautiful trees surrounding us all the time, so I’ve always opted for a reusable faux tree. U.S. Forest Service Forest Product Manager Becky Zimmerman says it’s actually healthy for our forests to be thinned down by Christmas tree hunters. “It helps with fire abatement, but we do have rules so the forest won’t look like it’s been clear cut. For instance, you can’t cut down a lone tree — there must be other trees within 15 feet in the area,” said Zimmerman. “This helps all the other remaining trees stay healthy and it helps clear the underbrush, which is the fuel for fires.” When you purchase your $5 tree permit, you’ll also be handed a list of rules to follow when tree hunting.

After speaking with Zimmerman, I felt better about the Christmas tree hunt. She was also kind enough to point me in the direction of some good fir stands outside of Sisters.

Let the hunt begin What the Forest Service doesn’t tell you is that it’s much harder to haul a cut tree up a hill than down a hill. So when you go for the tree hunt, climb uphill first; then gravity will work with you as you pull the tree back down to your car. Also, when you go get your

tree, wear warm hiking boots. There are no trails to lead you to the perfect tree. This isn’t a tree farm; you’ll be going over and under downed logs and a ton of brush. We came to several different stands of trees, and we all had our own opinion on what was the best tree. When you’re in the forest, your mind plays tricks on you, so bring a tape measure. The trees don’t seem so tall until you try to load one onto the roof of your vehicle. We dutifully measured our

tree and got the maximum height limit of 12 feet. I thought I’d need 12 feet because I have vaulted ceilings in my living room. Big mistake, but more on that later. Bring a sturdy tarp along, so when you fell your tree, you can drag it down to the car without losing too many limbs and branches. We were lucky because the snow started to accumulate and the tree easily slid down on top of the tarp like a sled, with each of us carrying a corner of the tarp.

An astute teenage observation As we unloaded the Christmas tree and brought it into the house, I was a little worried about what the neighbors would think: “There goes that crazy neighbor lady again, bringing in a giant Christmas tree and knocking down all her pumpkins on the porch.” Thankfully, I think most of my neighbors were probably at work when we brought the tree in. But there’s always a critic out there, and in this case, that would be my daughter, Kiki. I was feeling pretty smug and proud about the new Christmas tree standing bare but tall — very tall — in our living room. It smelled like a pine forest in our house. “Wow, it’s really tall,” said Kiki, 16, staring up to the very top of the tree. Long pause. “It’s kind of sparse-looking, don’t you think?” I remained undeterred.

Penny Nakamura saws down her Christmas tree, which she found (with a little help from some friends) in a fir stand outside of Sisters.

Affordable Prices FREE Estimates

This part of the DIY project should have been the fun part — decorating the tree and living room. That is, unless you’re completely design impaired. Let it be noted that for nearly 20 years, I’ve let the Christmas tree decorating fall to the kids. We have many, many ornaments that they’ve made with love, from preschool up through sixth grade. Multiply that by three children and you’ll understand why we have dozens of these handmade ornaments. Every parent gets these very “special ornaments” — and don’t get me wrong, they are special. I wouldn’t toss one away for $20, but offer me a million and you’ve got yourself a deal. You know the ornaments: They’re made with dyed green and red macaroni noodles. We also have the beaded ornaments, the pipe cleaner ornaments and the ornaments with the kids’ school photos sticking out of a snowman head. But as cute and special as these ornaments are, they don’t exactly lend themselves to a designer-looking Christmas tree. So this year, my girls pleaded, “Mom, please can we have a Christmas tree that isn’t a hodgepodge of everything?” For the record, I didn’t even think of our Christmas tree as hodgepodge. I’m kind of sentimental that way.

Professionals welcome As I was watching that intellectual bastion of television, “Project Runway,” I remember fashion consultant Tim Gunn telling one of the designers that too much glittery and blingy material cheapens the overall look. Something to ponder as I looked through our boxes of glittery Christmas decorations. I would certainly need

help. Lots of help. Decorator and co-owner of Pomegranate Home & Garden shop Jan Brockway was kind enough to take on the design challenge, along with decorator Michelle Thorstrom, who owns Haven Home Design in downtown Bend. The decorators went through my boxes of Christmas decorations, and they were nice enough not to cry in despair when they saw what they had to work with. “Wow, you have a lot of different glittery stuff,” remarked Thorstrom, keeping a brave smile on her face, as she pulled out yet another nonmatching glittery ceramic Christmas tree. What made this mock “Christmas Project Runway” challenge even more challenging was that I gave each designer just $100 to spend to create and decorate part of the tree, the entryway display, a table and a mantle. I’ve always wanted to say it, just like Tim Gunn, so here it is: “Make it work, designers.”

Making it work While both designers said it was very challenging to work with a limited budget, they more than made it work, which proved their skills. Both Brockway and Thorstrom had one week to figure out what they wanted to do and what type of theme to go with. For the tree, they decided on a natural look, with the colors of gold and brown with accents of red, and ornaments of birds’ nests, birds and pinecones. Here I will confess: I didn’t do much DIY during the decorating part, because I don’t have the touch like they do. I realized I was probably hindering the process when I hung up an ornament and a designer subtly took it down and placed it in another spot on the tree. I was, however, allowed to use a glue gun to put string on the pinecones. All told, I was simply blown away as the designers worked their magic.

Outside elements Thorstrom also brought in another Haven Home decorator, Jackie Anderson. Together, the two decorators went bough hunting and berry clipping in my front yard to add layers to the tree and mantle area. “People probably don’t realize it, but your yard is a natural bounty of items to decorate with, especially here in the Northwest,” said Anderson as she grabbed her garden shears to cut down, in my yard, more tree limbs that had perfect red berries for this project. “If you live in an apartment or don’t have access to a yard, you can go to Safeway and pick up a set of greenery that includes cedar and pine boughs for only $3.99.” Some of the best natural decorations are pinecones, which you can gather from your property; or, if you get a USFS permit, you can collect them in the forest. The decorators collected dozens of pinecones in all shapes and sizes and washed them or baked them on low to get the pitch and bugs out of them. Then they dried them and either spray-glued them and sprinkled delicate glitter on them, or sprayed them with flock.

Thorstrom worked her magic on the mantle above the fireplace. “Here I bought an inexpensive fake garland that has little lights in it already, and I will put real tree trimmings in it. The fake garland is just a nice base, and from there you can add layers,” said Thorstrom as she coaxed the natural boughs to lie a little flatter. “Then you can add real fruit for color and texture. Here we’ll use the pomegranates — they were 2 for $4 at the store — and we’ll save the pears for the table centerpiece ... these are inexpensive, I think 99 cents a pound, and look how beautiful they look.” Brockway tackled the entryway lowboy holiday display, and remarked that this type of display can cost less than $10. “For this area, I Xeroxed sheet music of old Christmas songs on parchment paper. We’ll use this as our base,” said Brockway as she placed the antique-looking sheet music down at various angles. “Then this is a mirror tile with beveled edges; you can get this at Home Depot for something like $1.60 a tile. Use this as your anchor, and then place these old silver candleholders that usually everyone has in their home. We’ll place this bough with silver ornaments around this area, and put candles in, and it’s a nice display.” Brockway also found a clever way to repurpose old clip earrings, which she finds in thrift shops and at garage sales. “I use them as napkin holders. They add a lot of bling to a dinner table,” said Brockway. “After all, the holidays are an elegant time — you don’t want it be a summer party — so this is a way to add some elegance without spending a lot of money.”

Sustainable wrapping All the designers had helpful hints on keeping the giftwrapping green. After watching the “Clean Bin Project” at the Bend Film Festival this fall, I did some research and found that if every family in America wrapped only three presents in reused materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields. Thorstrom says reusing old maps, sheet music and newspapers is one way to wrap gifts. People can also utilize reusable bags and decorate with reusable ribbons. Brockway likes to wrap presents in recycled brown paper grocery bags turned inside out. The plain brown look can be dressed up with recycled paper ribbon. “I always like to add a little Christmas ornament on top of the gift too, to add some elegance to the gift,” said Brockway. “You can also use recycled tissue paper to wrap clothing in a Tootsie Roll shape, which eliminates using a box. But my favorite way to wrap is using a beautiful tea towel to wrap a bottle of wine or some jams. A ribbon can always be reused.”

“Timber!” Murphy’s Law always comes into play whenever I’m feeling smug. As I was writing this article, I heard a big whoosh, crack and bang downstairs. My beautiful tree had crashed to the floor, spilling its base water and disgorging ornaments and boughs onto the floor. Note to self: A 12-foot tree might be a tad too tall. Also, in an effort to save money and stay within budget, we more or less decorated the front side and left the very bare side toward the wall. I’m no physics expert, but my hunch is that we may have weighted the front side too much, and “Timber!” became the effect. I went directly to Ace Hardware and bought two bags of river rock, weighted down the base and raised the tree again. Here’s the disclaimer: The tree looked unbelievably fantastic right after the designers left. Having to redo it, I tried my best, but it doesn’t quite look the same. But my family isn’t complaining; they say it still looks way better than our usual hodgepodge Christmas tree. (Thank you to the designers, and to my friend Charlotte and her parents, for making this DIY project possible. ) — Reporter: 541-382-1811, pnakamura@bendbulletin.com

Chestnuts worth singing about • Feeling the urge to roast some over an open fire? You may not have to look farther than your own backyard

To sow or to roast?

By Michael Tortorello New York Times News Service

Nat King Cole owes an apology to the nation. With “The Christmas Song,” in 1946, Cole conjured the sentimental image of “chestnuts roasting on an open fire.” The song’s power is Pavlovian. The strings swoop; Cole croons. Ten minutes later, we find ourselves pulling into the parking lot at the Shop & Slop, still wearing our house shoes. Alas, when we arrive at the produce aisle, the chestnuts are a grim sight. The glossy brown shells appear dull and spongy. Moldering, even. Back in the kitchen, the disillusionment grows. The casing seems to be made of stabproof Kevlar. The chestnut’s astringent pellicle (its pinkish inner skin) is harder to peel than old wallpaper. Bah, humbug to you, Nat King Cole. Chestnuts should be sweet, crispy and perishable. And the chestnut at the store is bound to disappoint, said Nancy Petitt, a co-owner of Delmarvelous Chestnuts, an 1,100-tree orchard in Townsend, Del. “They don’t have the fat content that protects things like walnuts and peanuts from degradation,” Petitt said. A chestnut demands steady refrigeration; the imports from Europe and China that dominate the market often sit in warm warehouses or unrefrigerated trucks before getting lost on the sales floor behind the Duraflame logs.

Right behind you Yet it’s not impossible to find a chestnut worth singing about. One place to look is your backyard. The fresh “culinary chestnut” that you roast in the oven could be the same seed stock you plant in the yard. Indeed, this is food gardening you can do on a bright day in November, before settling down to watch the Detroit Lions (like the chestnut tree, a great American underdog) play the Thanksgiving classic. A dozen-odd growers will mail a few pounds of fine chestnuts in time for the winter holidays. One is Mark Shepard, whose 106-acre orchard in Viola, Wis., called New Forest Farm, lies on a dirt road about two hours from anywhere. Nonetheless, visitors flock to hear Shepard, 49, expound on why chestnuts should replace corn as a staple of Americans’ diet.

ing program at the American Chestnut Foundation. “Most of them are sprouts. Sometimes they fruit.”

Christopher Gardner / New York Times News Service

Sara Fitzsimmons, who coordinates the Appalachian tree-breeding program at the American Chestnut Foundation, studies a canker blight on a 7-year-old chestnut tree in State College, Pa.

On a blustery afternoon last month, his nut orchard had already been worked over by the “cleanup crew”: Shepard’s seven hogs, ginger-haired crosses of Berkshires and Tamworths. But the chestnut harvest is a messy, drawn-out affair. “The chestnuts ripen,” Shepard said, “and the burr” — the fruit’s outer armor — “opens up, and the nuts fall free on the ground. Look at this tree here. This one still has nuts on it.” The spiky burr, halfbreached by a nut, appeared almost anatomical, a Georgia O’Keeffe painting touched up by Matthew Barney. No paring knife was needed to get at the meat. “Bite into it widthwise between your incisors,” Shepard said. “Not your canines, your incisors. And it will just pop out, whole.” Out of the peel and pellicle, the kernel appeared lightly whorled and the color of an antique piano key. It tasted sweet and crunchy. Faintly grassy, even. “Kind of like carrots,” Shepard said.

Tips on stabilizing a sloping rock garden Akron Beacon Journal I have a front yard rockery that was entirely covered in juniper and heathers and is at the bottom of a slope. I removed all the plants because I wanted to start over and create a beautiful flower and succulent rockery garden in its place. Should I be concerned about the stability of the rocks now? Do I need to replace the junipers with some kind of plant that will help with soil erosion and rockery stability? — Laura Vanderpool, West Seattle, Wash.

Q:

A:

Landscape architect John Vittum said ideally the rocks should be repositioned so they’re more stable. He suggested starting over from the base of the slope and partially burying the first course of stones in a trench, and then placing the other rocks above them at an angle so they rest against the slope. Backfill with soil. If you don’t want to move the rocks, he suggested planting shrubs such as Gro-Low sumac, Blue Rug juniper, Japanese Garden juniper or a lowgrowing variety of cotoneaster.

Hanging in there Before going any further, let us address the lingering rumor that the chestnut tree is extinct. The chestnut tree is not extinct. That said, the American chestnut (Castanea dentata) had a worse 20th century than the British Empire, the ice-delivery trade or rhyming poetry. It was a foreign pathogen that routed this 115-foot-tall giant from the Eastern forest. Starting as a cluster of orange dots, the blight, Cryphonectria parasitica, forms a webbed fungal ring and chokes off the tree’s vascular flow. When this parasite hitchhiked into the Americas will probably never be known, although it likely came on infected Asian chestnut stock. But while the parasite devastated the chestnut’s limbs and trunk, it somehow spared the root collar. So “there are millions of American chestnuts out in the woods,” said Sara Fitzsimmons, 34, who coordinates the north-central Appalachian tree-breed-

The best time to order and plant chestnut seedlings is probably mid-April. But if the ground isn’t frozen, it’s not too late to sow seeds now. What’s the best approach? “You put them in the ground, and they grow,” Shepard said. On a backyard scale, he recommends cutting the bottom off a five-gallon bucket. Bury the bucket so the lip is level with the earth. Then fill it close to the brim with compost or dirt. (A sandy, slightly acid soil will help; wet clay won’t.) Scatter, say, two dozen chestnuts on top and cover the seeds with an inch of dirt. Fitzsimmons proposes laying the seeds on their sides — that is, with the points facing right or left, an orientation that gives the shoot an easier path to sunlight. A heap of mulch might shelter the nut from a killing freeze, Shepard said. Or it might introduce a pest or a pathogen, Fitzsimmons countered. It’s your call. Unless the spirit of the season has left you eager to feed all the critters in creation, plan to cover the top and bottom of the bucket with a rigid wire screen, like ¼-inch hardware cloth. Before the stems bud in springtime, replace the leafshredding screen with a deerproof grow tube. You’ll need to groom at least two survivors. Chestnuts “don’t like to selfpollinate,” she said. The trees typically begin fruiting in five to seven years. It’s a long wait. Until then, when the open fire beckons, you can always dip into a cache of chestnuts in the crisper.

Christmas should come in October. By Thanksgiving, most chestnuts have been off the trees for six weeks or more. Even when a chestnut seed is stored properly — in the refrigerator crisper, in a perforated sealed plastic bag filled with damp peat moss — the kernel may cure and shrink away from the shell. By now, most orchardists have sold out of their special seed stock, from trees that ignore cold winters, shrug off the blight and bear large and easily peeled nuts. But domestic “culinary chestnuts” may yet grow into seedlings. The Empire Chestnut Co. (330-627-3181 or empirechestnut.com), in Carrollton, Ohio, wins endorsements from other growers, and offers an impressive variety of chestnut cultivars and species, like Allegheny chinkapin seeds (Castanea pumila). Seed orders (starting at $12.20 a pound) may be finished for the season, but there’s always spring, when Empire ships bare root stock ($8.50 each). Mark Shepard will ship cold-hardy, hybrid chestnuts ($10 a pound) and bare root stock ($50 for a bundle of 10 trees) from his Wisconsin nursery, Forest Agriculture Enterprises (747-3338733 or forestag.com). Gardeners with tree-mortality anxiety have two alternatives: raise blight-resistant Asian trees or join the American Chestnut Foundation (828281-0047 or acf. org). Longstanding members (who pay $40 a year) have already been offered a small supply of potentially blight-resistant seeds from newly developed American chestnut trees, said Sara Fitzsimmons, the group’s science coordinator for the north-central Appalachians. Sponsor members ($300) can jump ahead in line. — New York Times News Service

Watering Continued from F1 The dirt tends to be very sterile with minimal organic matter, and it needs to be amended with organic material such as compost or aged manure to improve water holding capacity, increase soil microorganism activity levels and improve the overall health of the soil. And, if that isn’t enough, the wildly-fluctuating day and night time temperatures will kill most plants. It is not uncommon, Stephenson said, during the Central Oregon winters to have a high in the 70s and a low below freezing that night. So a typical Central Oregon winter scenario, Stephenson says, is that the snow melts, but the ground remains frozen. There is minimal penetration of moisture because the top layer is frozen. Then, the snow melt may run off, leaving the plant dry. If nothing is done to prevent this situation, the plant may “freeze dry,” Stephenson said, and it will probably not survive through to spring. One way to mitigate some of these challenges, she added, is to water frequently throughout the winter. But do it right, and this starts in the fall, before it freezes. Applying an organic mulch, an insulative material such as pine needles, straw or compost, around the base of a tree or shrub will keep the roots warmer and help prevent moisture loss. Then, Stephenson recommends regular watering until the ground freezes. “Once the ground is frozen, water won’t reach the roots,” she said. “You want the roots to be moist underneath the layer of frozen soil.” The bad days for new plants, she said, are the ones where it is bright, sunny and windy. The ground may thaw during the daytime, and the moisture may evaporate. If the roots are not kept moist, she said, the combination of conditions will quickly dehydrate the plant. During times like this, Stephenson recommends hooking up a garden hose, or hauling buckets to water plants. Water deeply, she recommends, and make this a regular routine when possible. “The tops of the trees and shrubs are dormant, but root growth is still going on,” Stephenson said. “If you want your new plants and shrubs to make it to spring, and thrive, you need to water throughout the winter.” — Reporter: survivalsenselp @gmail.com.

Holiday gifts for your boss MARTHA STEWART

There’s no need to go overboard on holiday spending for your boss. A box of homemade cookies or a well-worded card may be the most appropriate gift.

Q: A:

Should I give my boss a holiday gift? Generally, it’s best not to give presents to your manager. That’s because a gift — especially a costly one — could be construed as an attempt to curry favor. But the answer isn’t onesize-fits-all. It depends on the relationship you have with your higher-up. If your boss is particularly supportive and you want to show your appreciation, give her a beautifully wrapped box of homemade cookies or a wellworded card. But make sure you do so discreetly. You don’t want your coworkers — or your boss — to get the wrong idea.

Q:

I’d like to decorate my barn with holiday lights, but it’s not wired for electricity. Can you recommend any options? Solar string lights are a perfect option, because they require no electricity or outlets and can be strung anywhere you like, says home editor Anthony Santelli. The solar collector can be anchored to the ground with clamps or stakes. Before the lights will shine, the panel needs some time in the sunlight, which it will convert to electricity. Once charged, the lights

will go on automatically when darkness sets in. You can find the lights in different shapes, colors and sizes, including tiny cylinders, clear stars and colored glass bulbs. Plowhearth. com has a good selection Battery-powered LED lights are another option. You could place several LED votive lights in your barn’s windows. These glow for about eight hours. You’ll need to use an outlet to recharge them. For options, try oxo.com.

Q:

I like to give plants as gifts for the holidays, but I’m tired of the same old amaryllis bulbs. What’s an alternative?

A:

How about a topiary? Less expected than traditional holiday bloomers, such as amaryllis and even Christmas cactus, woody perennial plants can be potted and shaped into attractive topiaries. Myrtle and ivy are common choices, but we’re particularly fond of rosemary. The herb’s pleasant, warm fragrance suits the holiday season, and its branches can be snipped and added to savory dishes all winter. Local nurseries and florists are good places to find gift-worthy rosemary plants — usually trimmed into either a sphere or the shape of a pine tree.

Be sure to include care instructions with your gift: The plant’s needles should be misted regularly, and the surface of its soil allowed to dry between waterings. Keep the plant in a cool, sunny spot indoors, then move it outside once the weather warms to 50 degrees or higher. Trim the rosemary regularly to keep its shape and encourage new growth.

Q: A:

Should I wrap my boxwood in burlap? Broad-leaved evergreens, such as boxwood and rhododendrons, can benefit from the shelter that a coat of burlap provides during winter. It protects the shrubs from the drying effects of winter wind and sun. The covering also helps prevent water in the leaf cells from repeatedly freezing and thawing, which can mar the leaves. The layer of material distributes the weight of snow over a wide surface area, helping to maintain the appealing, dense shape that is characteristic of boxwood. To cover your shrubs, make a framework around the plants with bamboo stakes or lumber (a tepee shape is one option); secure burlap to the structure with wire. The wrapping should not lie directly on the foliage. Remove it when the ground begins to thaw. Keep the shrubs strong year-round with mulch around roots and watering during dry periods, right up until the ground freezes.
