WASHINGTON — Unhappy over an apparent formatting glitch that cost a Bend shelter for homeless teens a chance at a muchneeded federal grant, members of Oregon's congressional delegation wrote the Obama administration Monday, urging a fix to the online application protocol. Earlier this year, the Administration for Children and Families, a branch of the Department of Health and Hum an Services, rejected a grant application from the Bend-based Cascade Youth and Family Center for funding for its Living Options for Teens, or LOFT, shelter. The application was uploaded on the government website Government officials originally said it did not include a detailed, line-item budget for the upcoming year. But LOFT shelter manager Pat Gundy insisted the application included the necessary budget information. According to the letter written by Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, and Democratic Sens. Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, the federal agency later admitted a formatting glitch made the application exceed the length requirements. SeeLOFT/A6

SALEM — State lawmakers told Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber's chief education officer on Monday they're concerned the governor's education agenda is full of ideas but short on specifics. Rep. Sara Gelser, DCorvallis, co-chair of the House Education Committee, said that when school district superintendents, education advocates and parents ask her what legislation they should expect from the executive branch in the 2012 session, she doesn't know what to tell them. "The broad strokes are there," Gelsersaid."A nd I'm wondering when legislators can see specifics, so we can partner with you and fully vet these ideas and move them through the process." Gelser, who co-chairs the committee, told Rudy Crew it's important to "have a robust public process with hearings" and she urged him to have specifics nailed down soon in the form ofbills or legislative concepts soon.

WASHINGTON — U n der i ntense pressure to trim i t s budget, the Army is dismissing a rising number of soldiers who do not meet its fitness s tandards, drawing f rom a

growing pool of troops grappling with obesity. Obesity is now the leading cause of ineligibility for people who want to join the Army, according to military officials, who see expanding waistlines in the warrior corps as a national security concern. Between 1998 and 2010, the number of active duty military personnel deemed obese more than tripled. In 2010, 86,183 troops, or 5.3 percent of the force, received at least one clinical diagnosis of obesity, accordingto the Armed Forces

Health Surveillance Center in Silver Spring, Md. The trend ha s p r ompted the military to re-examine its training programs and is driving commanders to weed out soldiers who are deemed unfit to fight. "A healthy and fit force is essential to n a t ional security," Cmdr. Leslie Hull-Ryde, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said. "Our service members must be physically prepared to deploy on a moment's notice anywhere on the globe to extremely austere and demanding conditions." During the first 10 months of this year, the Army kicked out 1,625 soldiers for being out of shape, nearly 16 times the number eased out for that reason in 2007, the peak of wartime deployment cycles.

Egppt'S mllltarp mOVeS In —Egypt's military assumed responsibility Monday for protecting state institutions and maintaining security ahead of a Saturday constitutional referendum, as the country

braced for another round of massdemonstrations by the supporters of the country's Islamist president and the liberal opposition over the disputed charter. The referendum on a contentious new constitution lies at the heart of a bitter political battle that has deeply polarized

Egyptbetween backersand opponentsofPresidentMohammed Morsi. The opposition was still trying to decide late Monday whether to boycott the referendum or rally Egyptians to vote "no" on the draft

constitution, and hoping that a massive turnout for a rally today

Under a mandate to wean down the force by t ens of thousands in coming years, the Army has instructed commanders to make few exceptions when it comes to fitness, a strategy it also employed during the period after the 1991 Gulf War. "During a war period, when we were ramping up, the physical standards didn't have a lot of teeth because we needed bodies to go overseas, to fill platoons and brigades," said Stew Smith, a former Navy SEAL and fitness expert who has designed workout routines for service members and law enforcement personnelstruggling to meet workplace fitness standards. "During a period of drawdown, everything starts getting teeth and that's kind of where we are again."

A new technique has achieved a long-sought goal — giving a patient's own immune system the lasting ability to fight cancer. While the leader of the research team does not use the "cure" word, the new treatment provides hope for patients with leukemia and, down the road, perhaps other forms of cancer. Bulletin wire reports Emma Whitehead has been bounding around the house lately, practicing somersaults and rugby-style tumbles that make her parents wince. It is hard to believe, but last spring Emma, then 6, was near death from leukemia. She had relapsed twice after chemotherapy, and doctors had run out of options. Desperate to save her, her parents sought an experimental treatment at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, one that had never before been tried in a child or in anyone with the t yp e o f l e ukemia Emma had. The experiment, in April, used a disabled form of the virus that causes AIDS to reprogram Emma's immune system genetically to kill cancer cells. T he tr e a tment nea r l y killed her. But she emerged from itcancer-free and seven months later is still in complete remission. She is one of nine leukemia patientswho are cancer-free after being treated with genetically-altered versions of their own immune cells, giving strength to a promising new approach for treating the blood cancer. The trial includes 12 patients in t otal an d b olsters findings from 2011. Then, scientists from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia reported that two of the first three patients treated showed no traces of the malignancy after getting the therapy. Today's results were presented at the American Society of Hematology's annual meeting in Atlanta. For Walter Keller, 59, who had failed every other treatment for his chronic lymphocytic leukemia diagnosed in 1996, the regimen meant he's been in remission since his treatment in April. Before the therapy, "I thought I had a year to live," he said. "I feel better than I have in a long, long time," said Keller, of Upland, Calif., in a telephone interview. "I'm excited because I think this will help a lot of

people." The scientists, led by Carl June, a professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania and a study author, used genetic engineering to manipulate white blood cells extracted f rom the p atients. The r esearchers reprogrammed the cells to specifically target the leukemia cells and reinjected them into the patients. Similar approaches are being tried at other centers, including the National Cancer Institute and Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center in New York. "Our goal is to have a cure, but we can't say that word," said June, who leads the research team at the University of Pennsylvania. He h opes the new treatment will eventually replace bone-marrow transplantation, an even more arduous, risky and expensive procedure that is now the last hope when other treatments fail in leukemia and related diseases. CLL is a slow-growing cancer that starts from white blood cells in the bone marrow and interferes with the production of healthy blood cells. The condition leads to complications such as immune deficiencies and swollen lymph nodes. The disease strikes about 16,000

Emma Whitehead, 7, has been in full remission from leukemia for months after scientists used a disabled form of the AIDS virus to genetically reprogram her immune system to kill cancer cells. adults each year and 4,600 die from it, according to the American Cancer Society. The disease is treated with chemotherapy. Another ap proach is bone marrow transplant in which chemotherapy is first given to kill diseased c ells t he n r e p laced w i t h healthy ones from bone marrow extracted from the patient or a donor. Keller underwent chemotherapy and then a stem cell transplant in 1998 and 1999. He was in remission for 5 and a halfyears. He then underwent a different chemotherapy regimen and got a second stem cell transplant.The cancer came back again in 2010, and he had no options left. He was one of 10 adult patients treated so far. "No patientwho had complete remission has lost it," said Keller's doctor, David Porter, director of blood and marrow transplantation at the University of Pennsylvania's Abramson C a ncer C e nter. "It's unusual to have a treatment that can work to t h is magnitude and until now, this duration." Three adults with chronic leukemia treated at the University of Pennsylvania have also had complete remissions, with no signs of disease; two of them have been well for more than two years, said Dr. David Porter. Four adults improved but did not have full remissions, and one was treated too recently to evaluate. A child improved and then relapsed. In two adults, the treatment did not work at all. The Pennsylvania researchers were presenting their results Sunday and Monday in Atlanta at a meeting of the American Society of Hematology. Despite the mixed results, cancer experts not involved with the research say it has tremendous promise,because even in this early phase of testing it has worked in seemingly hopeless cases. "I think this is a m ajor breakthrough," said Dr. Ivan Borrello, a cancer expert and associateprofessor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. John Wagner, director of pediatric blood and marrow transplantation at the University of Minnesota, called the Pennsylvania r esults "phenomenal" and said they were "what we've all been working and hoping for but not seeing to this extent."

the research "fantastic" and said it had the potential — if the early results hold up — to revolutionize th e t r eatment of leukemia and related blood cancers. Researchers say the

same approach, reprogramming the patient's immune system, may also b e u s ed eventually against tumors like breast and prostate cancer.

Meteyer finally r ealized what had happened: In the struggle to fight off the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome, the b ats w e re killed by their own hyperaggressive immune systems. Meteyer, a s cientist for the U.S. Geological Survey, had stumbled upon a phenomenon never before seen in mammals in the wild. A similar finding had been observed only once before — in people with AIDS. N ow s c i e ntists ho p e studying th e i m m unology of bats might help in the development of treatments for AIDS. The devastating immunesystem attack, called IRIS for immune reconstitution inflammatory syn d r ome, plays out differently in humans and bats, according to an article by Meteyer and two colleagues that recently appeared i n t h e j o u r n al

Virulence. When bats hibernate in winter, their heart rates slow and their immune systems all but shut down, making them vulnerable to the cavedwelling f u n gus G e omyces destructansthat causes white-nose and eats away skin, connective tissue and muscle. When bats wake up in late March, their immune systems react like startled homeowners who realize prowlers are inside the house. They launch a wild searchand-destroy mission that annihilates the disease, but also healthy cells and tissue. "It's not natural. It's cellular suicide. It comes out in a huge wave, going out to those areas of infection and kills everything," said M eteyer, who was a veterinary pathologist for the USGS in Madison, Wis., at the time of her discovery but now is the deputy coordinator for contaminant biology for the agency in Reston. For AID S p atients, the immune-system syndrome plays out differently. After antiretroviral treatment improves patients' health, their restored immune systems can launch an exaggerated attack against any p r eviously acquired opportunistic infection the treatment didn't catch, c ausing e x t ensive damage. S cientists now h ope t o study the i m munology of bats to try and uncover findings that can assist the development of treatments for AIDS.

Tenderizing meat: apotential hazard Mechanical tenderizers use blades or needles to help tenderize steaks and roasts. As much as 90 percent of those cuts are sold to hotels, family-style chain restaurants and institutions, such as hospitals and group homes. The process exposes consumers to a higher risk of E. coli poisoning compared with meat that has not been mechanically tenderized.

How a typical mechanical tenderizer works Dozens of needles or blades pierce the beef and sometimes inject it with marinade.

How E. coli goes fromthe machine to the mouth coli bacteria, a common 8 0 E.pathogen carried by cow manure, can end up on the surface of the meat; normal cooking destroys it.

Conveyor moves chunks of meat along the line. Plates press down on the meat while the blades penetrate.

The tenderizing process, however, can force contamination deep into the interior of the meat; cooking those cuts to a rare or medium-rare temperature allows the pathogens to survive.


A USDA study shows that some E. coli can survive in cold spots even when steaks appear to be fully cooked.

begins." E. coli 0157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can causebloodydiarrhea, dehydrationand,in severe cases,kidney failure. The very young, seniors and people with weak immune systems are most at risk. A recent lawsuit against National Steak and JBS noted that there are an estimated 73,480 illnesses linked to E. coli 0157:H7 infections each year in the United States, leading to 2,168 hospitalizations and 61 deaths. USDA data analyzed by The Star showthat large plants have had higher rates of positive E. coli tests than smaller plants. Federal meat safety officials said the latest data show those differencesare disappearing. But they acknowledged that the volume of meat a plant produces is a key issue. A USDA s tudy published i n Ma r c h showed that from 2007 through 2011, E. coli positives at very small plants resulted in only 465,000 pounds of contaminated beef. A slightly lower rate of positive tests at large plants, however, produced more than 51 million pounds of contaminated beef. Regardless, USDA officials and other expertsagree that most E. coli generally originates at larger slaughter plants, where pathogen-laden manure is a biggerproblem because that's where cattle are coming in from the feedlots. Federal inspectionrecords obtained by The Star under the federal Freedom of Information Act include hundreds of referencesto fecal contamination problems at four of the largest beef slaughter plants in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. For example, at Tyson's Dakota City, Neb., beef plant, inspectors noted: "massive fecal contamination; multiple carcasseswith varying degrees of fecal contamination; periods of very significant fecal, ingesta and abscess contamination." Another f e deral i n s pector at Tyson found "a piece of trimmed f a t a p p roximately 14 inches long with feces the length of it," and another noted, "fecal contamination ... was so great... couldn't keep up." But Tyson offlcials said such reports only provide a "snapshot of beef production." The company said it has added two full-time safety technicians at the plant, as well as additional workers, to assess carcasses and make sure fecal contamination is eliminated. USDA and beef industry officials point out that E. coli illnesses have dropped dramatically in recent years, although the Food Safety and Inspection Service cautioned that no "consistent trend" has emerged in recalls of contaminated beef.

Health department records show that 14 of the 25 known victims reported eating steak, some of which were mechanically tenderized, at one of several family-style restaurants. Health officials believe, and lawsuits alleged, that the original source of the contaminated steaks was a JBS plant. Those records indicate JBS' Colorado plant may have provided contaminated meat that was mixed into ground beef in Kansas and distributed in Minnesota and elsewhere. But the USDAtold Minnesota health officials that "the trace back investigation was not considered sufficiently strong to conclusively implicate that com-

pany (JBS)." After Lamkin sued National Steak Processors, the company then sued JBS, alleging that JBS had provided them with the E. coli-contaminated steaks in the first place. JBS denied the allegation in court, but when Lamkin's lawsuit was settled in August, JBS and National Steak both contributed to her settlement. The details of that settlement, which did not assign blame, are not partofthe courtrecord. JBS told The Star that the settlement is not an acknowledgement that they sold the contaminated meat blamed for Lamkin's illness. Instead, spokesman Cameron Bruett insisted, it is an acknowledgement of the "potential costs and the uncertainty in any litigation daim like this. I think both us and National felt it was in the best interest of the consumerto...sharethecostsof this settlement."

Labeling controversy Lamkin's and Danell's illnesses, and those of two dozen others, shouldn't have come as a surprise to federal regulators and the beef industry. For years, the USDA has urged the industryto voluntarily label such products, but found in 2008 that few beef plants were doing so. Costco is among stores thatdolabel suchproducts asbeing bladed. Those labels advise consumers that "for your safety USDA recommends cooking to


a minimum temperature of 160 degl ees. Not labeling mechanically tenderized beef jeopardizes consumers and puts health officials at a disadvantage if there's an outbreak of E. coli, experts said. "The meat associations do not want labeling on their products because they believe that it will causeconfusion and reluctance to buy the product," said Buck of the Center for Foodborne Illness. Pleas to the USDA to force the labeling of mechanically tenderized meat went unheeded for

years. Even one food industry group complained that r estaurants can't tell the difference between a regular steak and a mechanically tenderized steak. The Conference for Food Protection asked the USDA in 2010 to require labels for it. "Without clear labeling ... food retailers including restaurants and retail stores, and consumers do not have the necessary information to safelypreparetheseproducts,"the confer-

ence said. The recent Canadian E. coli outbreak prompted health officials there to consider labeling mechanically tenderized steaks and theCanadian government advised food preparers to cook them to 160 degrees. In the United States there has been no such public advisory and there still are no special labeling requirements. For now, the USDA recommends cooking allbeef steaks — mechanically tenderized of not — to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, then lettingthem sit for 3 minutes. While slow to respond, however, the USDA has begun a complex and lengthy process that could eventually require more specific labels for mechanically tenderized beef steaks. As part of that process the beef industry, the public and consumer groups will have an opportunity to comment on the proposal, which could be changed, or even dropped. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service declined to discussspecifics of the proposal, including its risk assessment, because it's under review. Read the rest of the series at

to actually turn a framework into enactable legislation and then actually get it passed," said Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., who is anticipating a complicated bill with "many real consequences for average Americans' lives." He added: "For senators to responsibly vote on a big,bold framework or package, we need time to review,

debate and discuss this. And we are rapidly running out of running room." In recent days, Boehner has called repeatedly on Obama to respond to an offer the GOP laid out last week. By Friday, a frustratedBoehner was complaining that, while the two sides continued to talk, there was "no progress to report."

The 'fiscalcliff'. Whatchangedafter Sunday's meeting? That's not immediately clear. But with written proposals from both sides now on thetable, senior aides say the elements of a dealare coming into focus:

FreSh tax revenue —As Obamawants it, this would be generated in part by raising rates on the wealthy and in part by limiting their deductions, as Republicans prefer. The top rate could be held below 39.6 percent, or the definition of the wealthy could be shifted to include those making more than

$375,000or$500,000,ratherthan$250,000asObama hasproposed. Obama wants $1.6 trillion over the next decade, but many Democrats privately say they would settle for $1.2 trillion. Boehner has offered $800 billion, and Republicans are eager to keep the final tax figure

under $1 trillion, noting that a measure to raise taxes onthe rich passed by the Senatethis summer would have generated only $831 billion.

Bipartisangroup talks defensecuts WASHINGTON — Substantial reductions in military spending should be part of any budget deal that President Barack Obama negotiates with Congress to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff" of automatic tax hikes and

spending cuts, a group of House Republicans and Democratssaid Monday. With just three weeks to the double economic hit, 22 lawmakers endorsed further cuts in projected military spending to address the nation's debt, arguing that long-term, strategic

increase. Thesequester, perhaps paired with an automatic tax hike, could then serve as anew deadline, probably sometime next fall, for wringing additional revenue from the tax code and more savings from entitlement programs.

nation's fiscal challenges, future defense budgets should reflect the conclusion of these wars and acknowledge that our modern military is able to approach conflicts utilizing fewer but more

advanced resources," the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Obama and con-

gressional leaders. The lawmakers said "substantial defense sav-

ings" could be achieved without undermining

What'snext:legislativesausage-making If Obama and Boehner can agree on substance, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., are already at work on a legislative structure. "We're trying to get ahead of the curve here ... to answer a lot of these technical questions about frameworks, guidelines — for both tax and entitlements," Baucus said. Policy aides say both sides want to avoid the constraints of the budget reconciliation process and are instead focused on drafting two relatively simple bills. One would instruct the tax-writing committees to undertake an overhaul of the tax code and the other would order up legislation to improve the solvency of Medicare and Social Security.

care initiative, analysts say, and the second would affect programs well beyond Social Security. "Would a reduction in the COLA apply to disabled veterans'"benefits,D urbin asked skeptically. "Ready for t h at vote on the floor?" Durbin s a i d De m ocrats would prefer raising Medicare costs or reducing benefits for better-offseniors. After a presidential campaign focused on attacking Democrats for cutting Medicare to pay for "Obamacare," Republicans, too, might find that approach more palatable. "My little sister, who makes (an average income), shouldn't be paying for Warren Buffett's Medicare. So there are different ways to skin this cat," said Rep. Patrick Tiberi, R-Ohio, a senior Ways and Means Committee member. Some Republicans have also suggested scalingbackthe new health care subsidies, which are scheduled to begin in 2014 for people making as much as 400 percent of the federal poverty level, about $92,000 for a family of four. And there's interest in setting per capita caps on payments to state governments for Medicaid, the health program for the poor.

that would maintain current tax rates for 98 percent of taxpayers and let rates rise for the top 2 percent. That measure would leave a huge mess in January: It contains no extension of emergency unemployment benefits, no payroll tax cut and no protection for doctors from a looming 30 percent cut in Medicare reimbursements. Most pr o b lematic for Obama, the measure would not lift the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling. With the debt already nudging up against that cap, Republicans would have leverage to resume the fight over

spending early next year.

" We don't have a l o t o f cards as it relates to the tax issue before year's end," Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said on "Fox News Sunday." "So a lot of people are putting forth a theory, and I think it has merLacking in specifics? it, where you go ahead and Those measures are likely give the president ... the rate to contain little more than savincrease onthe top 2 percent, ings targets and some prinand all of a sudden the shift ciples to guide work next year, goes back to entitlements." aides said.

SALEM — Gov. John Kitzhaber called lawmakers into a special session this Friday with the hope of paving the way for sportswear giant Nike to expand its operations in Oregon. The deal: Nike invests at least $150 million and creates a minimum of 500 good-

Josh Hart smiles while talking about the families Operation Elf Box has helped during its last three years of operation.

Prineville fire displaces family A Prineville family of six will temporarily beout of its homewhile damage from a weekendfire is repaired. After seeingsmoke coming from thehouse in the 400 block ofElm Street, a neighbor reported the fire at 6:10a.m. Saturday, CaseyKump, fire marshal for Crook County Fireand Rescue said Monday. The family — ahusband, wife andfour children — wereawayfrom town over theweekend and returned to find the smoke-damagedhome. Crook County Fireand Rescue didnot release the name ofthe family. Overloadedelectrical wiring under thehouse started the fire, Kump said, which burned inthe garage andlaundry room and sent smokethrough the home. The family's dogand rabbit wereoutside and survived the fire, which killed a bird inside the house. Kump didn't havean exact damageestimate. "It's going to be inthe tens of thousands ofdollars for sure," hesaid.

took the bird with it when

it left," he said. The womanreported the sighting to the Sheriff's Office around 9:45 a.m. Deputies searched for the cougar for about a half-hour but did not locate the animal, Dizneysaid. Deputies found tracks that indicated therewas one cougar.Because the cougar didn't show an interest in people, deputies won't be looking for it again, although the Sheriff's Office is alerting Deschutes River Woods residents that a cougar may be intheir neighborhood. As deer move to lower elevations close to town for winter, cougars will likely follow them, said Steven George, district wildlife biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish andWildlife in Bend. "Where youseedeer is where youhavea high chance of seeingwhat eats them," hesaid.

• As the founderof Operation ElfBox,JoshHalt's mission ismaking kids' spirits bright By Megan Kehoee The Bulletin

Over the years, Bend resident Josh Hart has held many titles. Motorcycle salesman. Wholesale mortgage salesman. Musician. But none of those titles were nearly as meaningful or gratifying as the one he holds now: Elf. "We've watched as so many nonprofits these days go under and be unable to continue their mission," Hart said. "We're just trying to change things one toy at a time. It's simple. We just want to make a brighter Christmas for less fortunate kids." Local toy drive Operation Elf Box has grown from a fledgling idea two years ago to help a few local kids around Christmastime to a program that's in more than 128 businesses and counting in Central Oregon and Salem. Hart, the founder of Elf Box, designed the toy drive to be unlike many others. Any family in need of toys

during the holidays can contact the organization and make an appointment to visit the store located in the St. Clair Place building in downtown Bend. From there, parents can go shopping at the "elf store," choosing which toys best suit their children. "Before all this, I had no idea how empowering it was for a mother to make choices for her children," Hart said. "She's able to make choices at a time when there are few choices she could make." Hart says the shopping appointments, in particular, are a key part of the program.

"Every family gets their own appointment," Hart said. "Because you feel important when you have an appointment. You think 'They're expecting me. I'm on the list.'" In the 2010 holiday season, Hart met with 153 families who got a chance to shop for their children's presents at the elf store. Last year, he and a group of volunteerswere overwhelmed by 405 appointments. The program has even expanded to Salem this year with an elf store that gives toys to local families there. Another location will also be opening soon in Redmond. See Elf/B3

You canhelp To volunteer or donate to Operation Elf Box, call 541-419-4159 or go online to a list of locations to drop off toys. Those in need and interested in scheduling a shopping appointment with the toy drive should call 573-353-3126 or go


A 53-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman with autism is expected to enter a plea next month. Jay Allen Palmer was arrested Nov. 13 and indicted Nov. 20 on four counts of fir st-degree sexual abuse and one count of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration. The charges are Palm e r aggravated because the woman involved has a mental disability, and is described as a "vulnerable victim." Palmer is being held in the Deschutes County Jail in lieu of $155,000 bail. According to a search warrant, on Oct. 6 members of the county Sheriff's Office responded to a reportofa mi ssing 20year-old autistic woman in Deschutes River Woods. The woman had been missing for three hours, and was described as having a mental capacity similar to someone between the ages of 7 and 15. She is not being identified because she is the alleged victim of sexual abuse. While deputies were headed to the family's home, the woman's mother called to report her daughter had returned. When a deputy arrived and spoke with the young woman, he reported it was clear she was developmentally delayed. "She said she went next door to give the neighbors some root beer, and then walked around the neighborhood," the search warrant states. The deputy told the woman to make sure she let her parents know before she left the house. As the deputy prepared to leave, the woman told the deputy she'd met a man while walking and had sex with him in some bushes. She identified the man as having a beard, but did not know the man's name and had not previously met him. A neighbor told police she had seen the woman earlier in the day, walking with an older white man with a beard. The man, she said, had his arm around the woman. The 20-year-old's parents told deputies she was not capable of caring for herself and needed help with basic daily tasks. See Plea/B3

Madras' youngestmayorstill hasfond memories • Now living in the Seattle area,JasonHalesays his brief mayoraltermwasavaluable experience By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Former Madras Mayor Jason Hale drew local and international attention when he began his political career in 2007 as the city's

youngest mayor. Hale won election at age 26 and,

because ofhisKorean heritage on his mother's side of the family, the story of Madras' youngest

mayor soon appeared on a major TV outlet in South Korea and Hale received congratulations from the mayor of a district of Seoul. At the time, he was a small-business

owner, operating Ahern's Grocery & Deli and the Backstreet Pub. Just two years later, Hale sold the Hale businesses, resigned from the City Council and moved to Washington to study heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration. ~

Although some people con-


nectedwith Hale on Facebook, he acknowledged he lost touch with many of the people he knew in Madras. Now 32, Hale lives Lynnwood, Wash., a suburb of Seattle, and works for the aerospace company Boeing. He recalls his time in Madras fondly, and said that serving as mayor was a valuable experience.

Operation Elf Box is a grassroots effort in Bend to help make Christmas brighter for disadvantaged children in the community. It's grown from just six locations in local businesses to over 128 throughout Central Oregon.

Elf Continued from B1 Despite the enormous spike in needy families, Operation Elf Box has yet to turn away any family that has asked for

help. Toy boxes for the drive are located at TJ M a xx , BendBroadband and every Central Oregon McDonald's — along with local stores like Leapin' Lizards, Thump Coffee and Cuppa Yo, to name a few. Initially, Hart distributed the boxes at just six local business locations. Since then, Lowe's has gotten involved, and has donated the St. Clair Building space to the toy drive. "It's grown very organically," Hart said. Suzy Reininger, the owner of Leapin' Lizards, has been involved with t h e p r ogram since Hart walked into her store two years ago asking if he could leave an Elf Box there. The store now offers a 20 percent discount to anyone who purchases toys to be do-

nated to the drive. "What I liked about it was the fact that parents can go (to the Elf store) and pick out the items themselves for their kids," Reininger said. "It's just a more personal touch, and it's something that really r i ngs true." One big difference between two years ago and today is the fact that Hart isn't alone in his ambition to help underprivileged kids. Several steady volunteers participate in the

program, helping with the appointments, toy d i stribution and volunteer organization. All together, there were 50 volunteers last year. Resident elf Jenn Snyder joined the cause last year after finding herself unemployed in December. Though she now has a job at Broken Top Bottle Shop, she remains a crucial part of the drive, working with families and volunteers. "I really believe in it," Snyder,who issometimes referred around the Elf Box office as "Angel Elf," said. "I think that

An analysis of Nike by a global professional services firm that Kitzhaber noted in his speech estimates the economic impact of a potential expansion could be more than $2 billion a year and more than 12,000 jobs by2020.

mong the changes Gov. John Kitzhaber would like to make to Oregon's education system is this one: He would like to allow some young men and women to pay in-state tuition to attend college in Oregon even though they are in this country illegally. It's a worthy idea. There's a good case to be made for the proposed change. Federal law already requires that states provide a free K-12 public education to all comers of school age, and those providing that education may not inquire about a student's immigration status. As a nation, we clearly believe the most basic of education is so valuable that all children living here should be allowed to take part. Kitzhaber's suggestion simply acknowledges that an education's value doesn't end with high school graduation. And, unlike K-12 education, the cost of college would not be borne by the state, but by the young men and women going to school. No legal immigrant or American citizen would have to give up his seat in class so an illegal could sit there free. As with most proposed changes to the law, however, the value of this one will lie in the details. Kitzhaber has said he believes students should be required to

have attended an Oregon high school for at least three years to qualify for the program. We'd make the standard somewhat tougher by adding that eligible students would have to have arrived in the United States when they were still too young to have made the tripacross the border by themselves. We would also like assurances that eligible students have had no brushes with the law while here. Kitzhaber's proposal, meanwhile, isn't a case of a liberal governor getting into the immigration reform act through a side door. Immigration policy is a matter for Congress and the president to decide — although theyhave been mighty reluctant to do so in recent years. That's where the bigger problem must be solved. But Kitzhaber recognizes that Oregon benefits when its young people, here legally or not, are well educated. His proposal is simply a way to help ensure that happens.

Why foist Anna Wintour on a close ally? By Lane Filler


On foredosures, avoid unintended consequences he idea behind 2012's Senate Bill 1552 was appealing: Allow homeowners facing foreclosure to talk with their lenders and a mediator to seek ways to avoid losing their homes. The reality is a handful of mediations and a frozen foreclosure system that's slowing the housing industry's recovery. As the Legislature goes back to the drawing board in 2013, it needs to ferret out such potential unintended consequences in the new proposals it considers. The effects of SB 1552 were complicated by an Oregon Court of Appeals ruling about the legal recording of mortgage ownership. That ruling forced many foreclosures into the courts, where the mediation r e quirement d i d n't


apply The courts are now flooded, foreclosures are stalled, and the recovery of the state's economy is threatened. Is the goal to keep homeowners in their homes'? If possible, certainly. But it must also be about settling conflicts so the homeowner can move on and the housing industry

can clear the inventory of properties and start to recover. Players at the table have different goals. Bankers hope the Legislature will resolve the uncertainty created by the law and the court ruling. Homeowners need protecti on from lenders who were talking with them about refinancing while foreclosing behind their backs. County governments have an interest in filing fees they didn't collect on mortgage transfers. And newspapers, including The Bulletin, have an interest in the legalnotice fees lenders pay when foreclosures proceed. Finally, th e a l r eady o v erwhelmed court system needs relief from this new load of cases. Most important, all of us have an interest in seeing economic recovery, which depends largely — though certainly not exclusively — on the housing industry. The stakes are high, the risks are many, and legislators should be well aware — as they may not have been earlier this year — of the need to anticipate the unexpected.

Reports saidshe forced employees to spend days seeking the perfect umbrella for her patio. Which type is W i ntour? She's most famous for a fictional film depiction of her life, "The Devil Wears Prada," in which she was ... the devil. She insists on sitting separately from other journalists at fashion shows. She cannot bear to be at parties for more than 20 minutes. It's said her employees are not allowed to ride elevators with her, or start conversations.

Love to read, kids? Get ready for the Age of the Manual By Alexandra Petri The Washington Post

orget "The Catcher in the Rye." New Common Core standards (which affect 46 states, including Oregon, and the District of Columbia) will require that, by 2014, 70 percent of high school seniors' reading assignments be nonfiction. Some suggested texts include "FedViews" by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the EPA's "Recommended Levels of Insulation" and "Invasive Plant Inventory" by California's Invasive Plant Council. F orget "Huckleberry Finn" a n d "Moby-Dick." Bring out the wood-

chipping manuals! I like reading. I love reading. I always have. I read recreationally stilL I read onbuses, in planes,while crossing streets. My entire apartment is covered in books. And now, through some strange concatenation of circumstances, I write for a living. And it's all because, as a child, my

parents tookthe time to read me "Recommended Levels of Insulation." Oh, "Recommended Levels of Insulation." That was always my favorite, although "Invasive Plant Inventory" was a close second. (What phrases in literature or life will ever top the rich resonance of its opening line? "The I nventory categorizes plants as High, Moderate, or Limited, reflecting the level of each species' negative ecological impact in California. Other factors, such as economic impact or difficulty of management, are not included in this assessment." "Call me Ishmael" has nothing on it!) H It is important to note that even Limited species are invasive and should be of concern to land managers," I frequently tell myself in moments of crisis. "Although the impact of each plant varies regionally, its rating represents cumulative impacts statewide." How true that is, even today.

My dog-eared copy of HRecommended Levels of Insulation" still sits on my desk. That was where I first learned the magic of literature. "Insulation levels are specified by R-Value. R-Value is a measure of insulation's ability to resist heat traveling through it." What authority in that sentence! And then came the table of insulation values. I shudder every time that table appears. It is one of the great villains in the history of the English language. Uriah Heep and Captain Ahab can't hold a candle to it. In fact, I do not know who these people are. I have never read about them. I do remember curling up w ith "Recommended Levels of Insulation" and reading it over and over again. It was this that drove me to pursue writing asa career — the hope one day of crafting a sentence that sang the way "Drill holes in the sheathing and blow insulation into the empty wall cavity before installing the new

siding" sings. Look, I wa s a n E nglish major, so I may be biased. But life is full of enough instruction manuals. The best way to understand what words can do is to see them in their natural habitat, not constrained in the dull straitjackets of legalese and regulationish and manualect. It's like saying the proper way of encountering puppies is in puppy mills. Words in regulations and manuals have been mangled and tortured and bent into unnatural positions, and the later you haveto discover such cruelty,the better. The people behind the core have sought to defend it, saying that this change is not meant to supplant literature. This increased emphasis on nonfiction would not be a concern if the core worked the way it was supposed to, with teachers in other disciplines, like math and science, assigning the hard technical texts that went along with their subjects.

But teachers worry that this will not happen. Principals seem to be having trouble comprehending the requirement themselves. Besides, the other teachers are too busy, well, teaching their subjects, to inflict technical manuals on t h e ir students, and they may expect the English department to pick up the slack.Hence the feared great Purge of Literature. The core has good intentions, but it will be vital to make sure the execution is as good, or we will head down the road usually paved with good intentions. There, in the ninth circle, students who would otherwise have been tearing through Milton and Shakespeare with great excitement are forced to come home lugging manuals of Exotic Plants. All in all, this is a great way to make the kids who like reading hate reading. — Alexandra Petri is a member of the Washington Post's editorial staff.

P ORTERVILLE, Cal i f . G ravediggers work t h e old-fashioned way on the Tule River I n dian R e servation, chipping away at the hard pan by hand with pickaxes and shoveling the dirt aside. They say it's a sign of respect not to use machinery, but never has the crew had to dig so many graves at one time. On Monday, the brothers who run thereservation cemetery were preparing to dig a grave for Alyssa Celaya, 8, who died Sunday following a rampage the previous day that also took the lives of her grandmother and the grandmother's two brothers. It will be the first of five they'll dig this week. The killings have shaken this peace-preaching t r ibe because it goes against their teachings that love for family exists above all. Authorities said the killer was Alyssa's father, Hector Celaya, 31, who died Sunday after a shootout with sheriff's deputies. Investigators were still searching for a motive. A long w it h k i l l in g h i s daughter, mother and uncles, Celaya wounded his 5-yearold daughter and 6-year-old son, whose injuries are lifethreatening, authorities said. "The community i s a peaceful one, and the tribe tries to teach children to be nonviolent," said Tribal Council Secretary Rhoda Hunter. "We teach our children to not even kill insects. The battle b etween good and evil i s there. Bad is always going to be there. I tell my grandkids that. I tell them to work for

touchdown passes, leading the Patriots to a 42-14 rout of the Hous-

ton Texans. If the gamewas a measuring stick in the AFC, New England and its star quarterback aced the test with a seventh

take player, coach of year

Last season Summit swimming pulled off a rare double, winning both boys and girls team state

championships. Tommy Brewer led the Storm boys at state with victories in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle races, while Madi Brewer and Mackenzie Halligan combined for four topthree individual finishes for the Summit girls.

Trail Blazerscruise past Raptors, 92-74 The Associated Press PORTLAND — I njuries, an ejection and a dubious record. The Portland Trail Blazers' 92-74 victory over the Toronto Raptors on M o nday night had a little bit of everything. Both sides were beset by injuries, with Portland missing starters Wesley M atthews and Nicolas Batum, and Toronto losing starters Andrea Bargnani and Kyle Lowry during the game. T hen T o r onto's A m i r J ohnson p u n ctuated h i s ejection from the game by throwing his mouthpiece at the official who tossed him. And finally, the Blazers went zero for 20 from 3point range, a new NBA record for futility. "I don't w ant t o b r e ak r ecords l i k e t h a t, " s a i d Portland star LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 30 points and 12 rebounds. J .J. Hickson added 1 6 points and 11 boards for the Blazers, who led by as m any as 18 points in t h e second half. DeMar DeRozan had 20 points for the Raptors, who have dropped eight straight games against Portland. But the game was more about who didn't play — or had to leave. Batum was shelved bec ause of b ack p ai n t h a t hampered him in Portland's 99-80 home loss to Sacramento on Saturday, while Matthews was out because he strained his left hip in the fourth quarter against the Kings. Matthews tried to drive to the basket during warmups and limped off to the locker room, wincing. Matthews missed a game for the first time in his fouryear NBA career. He had

played in 250 straight games, second-most among active players behind Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. To replace Matthews and Batum, the Blazers started Sasha Pavlovic and rookie Victor Claver. "It felt great to know we could be d ow n a c o u ple of players and still get the win," H i ckson said. "We knew we were going to have to play extra hard because we were short-handed, but

guys stepped up and we got the win." Also on Monday: Heat.... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 101 Hawks..... . . . . . . . . . . . . . 92 MIAMI — LeBron James scored 27 points, Dwyane Wade had 26 and M i ami pulled away in the second half to beat Atlanta.

Despite being the reigning state freestyle champion at both 50 and 100 yards, Tommy Brewer this season will likely compete in the 200 IM and 100 breast, the latter being an event in which he could potentially set a national high school record. Less than two weeks ago at the Husky Invitational in Seattle, an all-age club meet, Brewer turned in a 100 breast time of 54.52 seconds. The national high school record is 53.66 seconds. " It's realistic," Amy H a l ligan s ay s a b ou t B r e w er breaking the national record. " That's really got to be hi s goal this year. Even though he won the 50 and 100 freestyle last year, he's so much stronger in the 200 IM an d 100 breast." For the girls, Madi Brewer, Tommy's sister, and M ackenzie Halligan, the coach's daughter, hope to build off last year's title, the Storm's first girls swimming state championship. Summit won the 200 medley and 400 freestyle state relay races last winter and expects to contend in those events again this season. Halligan and Brewer both swam on the 400 relay squad, and Brewer, Sydney G o odman and Abby Sorlie are all back from the 200 medley team. Mackenzie Halligan figures to be the favorite in the 500 freestyle this season after taking second at state last winter to a graduating senior. "The 500 is her strongest event," Amy H a l ligan says about her daughter. "Her goal this year is to hit All-America standard (set by the National I nterscholastic Sw i m m i n g Coaches Association). That's moving pretty fast."

a popular technique among fitness skiers, and the rise of mountain biking. " It just h appened to b e the time (the early 1980s) when mountain bikes took off, (cross-country) skating became popular," Leet said. "And mountain biking (and) Bend is a perfect match." Over the years, Sunnyside has seen the decline in popularity of bike brands such as Schwinn, Peugeotand Motobecane and the rise of brands like Trek and Cervelo. And the race that Leet and others helped start, the Cascade Cycling Classic, has continued to remain relevant, bringing in riders such as Eric Heiden (the Olympic speedskaterextraordinaire), 1984 Olympic cycling gold medalist Alexi Grewal, and Lance Armstrong, who would go on to win — and then be stripped of — seven Tour de France titles. Miles upon miles of mountain biking trails were built — and construction of even more trails has continued on the abundant government land in the region. And for cross-country skiing in Leet's eyes Meissner for which donations are accepted but no fees are charged, has opened up skiing to the masses. "We like the idea that this isn't just a sport for the elite," Leet said. "It's become a sport for anybody, and M eissner

Wall Street expects another round of strong quarterly results from Dollar General today. The discount retailer's sales have been growing, driven by demand for candy, snacks and

perishable foods, as well as seasonal products. The company, due to report its third-quarter results, increased its full-year earnings forecast in September. Will its latest results prompt Dollar General to raise its estimate again? $60 50

Fed meeting The Federal Reserve's latest Beige Book report found economic growth was up in most parts of the L.S. in October and November. The report, a snapshot of business conditions in each of the Fed's 12 regional districts, credited the gains to solid consumer spendingand steady home sales. Even so, economists are anticipating that the Fed's monetary policymaking body will probably decide to provide more support for the economy during a two-day meeting that kicks off today.

Pantry's struggles Declining fuel sales and higher wholesale fuel costs have hurt The Pantry's profitability this year.

The company, which runs convenience stores and Kangaroo Express gas stations in the Southeast, has made up for that with improved merchandise sales and by slashing costs. Wall Street is expecting that the company's fiscal fourth-quarter earnings, due out today, will fall short of its results in the same period last year.

Mcoonald's Novembersales rise A limited-time offering of a Cheddar Bacon O nion sandwich helped McDonald's sales climb in November. The increase follows a decline in October, the first drop in M cDonald's key monthly sales gauge in nearly a decade. The company, based in Oak Brook, III., said that its global sales at restaurants open at least thirteen months rose 2.4 percent for the month ended Nov. 30. The figure is a key metric


by popular of breakfast options, its value menu and limited-time Cheddar Bacon Onion sandwiches. The figure rose 1.4 percent in Europe, where McDonald's gets 40 percent of its business, as strength in the U.K., Russia and other markets were offset by weakness in Germany.

Commodities Worries about weaker demand dragged down prices for energy commodities. Crude oil fell for a fifth straight day, and natural gas fell to its lowest price since October.

Exchange The euro rose modestly against the dollar. Traders expect the Federal Reserve to announce more stimulus at its meeting this week, a move that can hurt the value of the dollar.

Stock indexes inched higher Monday as investors continue to wait on budget negotiations in Washington. The top concern for investors since November has been whether politicians will reach a deal to avert the fiscal cliff. That's what economists call the collection of tax increases and spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect automatically in 2013. Astrong sales report from McDonald's helped to lift stocks. The burger chain said that a key sales figure rebounded in November on strong demand for items on its breakfast and value menus. Strong economic reports from China also helped. They calmed worries about the world's second-largest economy.

"It's like a safe because there's no accessfrom the outside," said Hultberg, a 74-year-old Powell Butte resident who owns Pro Steel Fab 8r Consulting. The device is mounted to the inside of a trailer door right above the latch, said Matt Dickerhoof, co-owner of Invizi-Lock. When the lock-button on the keyless remote ispushed, he said,a threequarter-inch rod extends into the framework ofthe trailer.When unlocked, the rod retracts. "There's nothing to cut," Dickerhoof said, comparing the system to a padlock. "It's basically a remote-control deadbolt-locking system for your trailer." Hultberg invented the product in 2007, and in 2010, he and Dickerhoof modified Invizi-Lock, giving it two backup features: a

battery backup in case the trailer

power goes out and a physical key that allows access if the remote gets lost or broken. The patent is pending, said Dickerhoof, who also works as a generalcontractor and commercial developer for Dickerhoof Properties. Over the past year, about a dozen ofthe devices have been sold for $595 each, plus installation, which rangesfrom $150 to $200, depending on the trailer, he said. "We didn't push it really hard because we wanted to take time to test it," Dickerhoof said, referring to slowly putting the product on the market. But now that the product has proven itself, the duo has big plans. "Our goal is to get the trailer manufacturers to install them at the factory or dealership as an option," Dickerhoof said.

Mobile apps for children seeretly collect and share data, FTCsays By Jessica Guynn Los Angeles Times

SAN FRANCISCO — A study from the Federal Trade Commission has found that most mobile apps for kids are secretly collecting information from children — including device IDs, phone numbers, locations and other private information — without their parents' knowledge or consent. Nearly 60 percent of the mobile apps the FTC reviewed from the Google Play and Apple App stores transmitted the device ID. They also often shared that ID with an advertising network, analytics com-

More than half of the apps also contained interactive features, such as in-app purchases and advertising that were not disclosed to parents. Because a large number of the apps sent information to a small number of third parties, those third parties could potentially develop detailed profiles of kids based on their behavior in the different apps, the study found.

Federal and state authorities plan to announce a record $1.9 billion settlement with HSBC today, a major victory in the government's broad crackdown on money laundering at banks. The settlement with HSBC stems from accusations that the British banking giant transferred billions of dollars on behalf of sanctioned nations like Iran and enabled Mexican drug cartels to launder money through the U.S. financial system, according to officials briefed on the matter. The deal, which will force the bank to forfeit more than $1.2 billion and pay additional penalties, is the largest to emerge from an investigation that has spanned several years and involved multiple government agencies. The settlement is expected to include a deal with the Manhattan district attorney's office and a deferred prosecution agreement with the Justice Department, according the officials. The Treasury Department is also expected to join the settlement.

"While we think most companies have the best intentions when it comes protecting kids' privacy, we haven't seen any progress when it comes to making sure parents have the information they need to make informed choices about apps for their kids. In fact, our study shows that kids' apps siphon an alarming amount of information from mobile devices without disclosing this fact to parents," FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz said in a written statement.

Google sent cash to Bermuda By Jesse Drucker Btoomberg News

ROME — Google avoided about $2 billion in worldwide income taxes in 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues into a Bermuda shell company, almost double the total from three years before, filings show.

By legally funneling profits from overseas subsidiaries into Bermuda, which doesn't have a corporate income tax, Google cut its overall tax rate almost in half. The amount moved to Bermuda is equivalent to about 80 percent of Google's total pretax profit in 2011. The increase in Google's revenues routed to Bermuda, disclosed in a Nov. 21 filing by a subsidiary in the Netherlands, could fuel the outrage spreading across Europe and in the United States over corporate tax dodging. Governments in France, Britain, Italy and Australia are investigating Google's tax avoidance as they seek to boost revenue during economic doldrums. Google said it complies with all tax rules, and its investment in various European countries helps their economies.

or many people, it's not Christmas without a tree in the house. U.S. households purchased approximately 21.6 million real trees and 12.9 million artificial trees in 2011, according to a Nielsen Research survey last year.

< For people looking for a different artificial option, www.treefopia .com offers a pre-lit clump of palm trees.

A lot of people decorate their homes with both. "Many people are decorating their homes with more than one tree. People often put a traditional green tree in their formal living room and have some fun with a colored tree in their great room or den," said Meredith Bradford, spokeswoman for the website, which is known for its wide selection of traditional, artistic and, frankly, wild artificial trees. Christmas tree options have multiplied since America adopted this rather odd but

charming tradition in the early to mid-1800s. Greenery hasbeen a part ofw inter festivals around the globe since ancient times, and may be a precursor to our modern Christmas tree, explains Bruce David Forbes in his fascinating book, "Christmas: A Candid History" (University of California Press, 2007).

'Gypsy' cakecombines spice andchocolate By Julie Rothman


The Baltimore Sun

Alice Rohart, of Baltimore, was looking for a recipe for a cake that her mom used to make when she was growing up that she called a Gypsy Round Layer Cake. She said her mom baked a lot and she fondly remembers this cake as being a lovely combination of spice and chocolate with chopped nuts topped with a delicious buttercream frosting. I located a recipe for a Gypsy Round Cake in the American Profile magazine Hometown Cookbook that likely is the one Rohart was searching for. Octavia Fleck, of Morehead, Ky., sent in the recipe for the Gypsy Round Layer Cake. She said that she has been bringing this special cake to holiday gather-

fruitcake came to mind, and I wondered whether I could find other worthy recipes that didn't rely on sugar-injected fruit and buckets of booze. It turns out I could.

Check the cake every other day. If it seems dry, lightly brush more brandy or rum on top. Continue checking and soaking the cake until you serve it or give it away.



Note:To toast the pecans, spread them on abaking sheet and place in a 350-degree oven, shaking the sheet occasionally, for 8 to10 minutes. Watch carefully; nuts burn quickly.

Trees Continued from D1 "Riga, in Latvia, claims to have been the site of the first Christmas tree in 1510, and France also exhibits early evidence," Forbes writes. The German nobility popularized Christmas trees i n the 1800s, and, as the custom spread throughout the region, it eventually took hold in Eng-

land during the reign of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. From there, Forbes writes, the influence of the Christmas tree made its way to the United States. By the early 1900s, most American homes had Christmas trees, an d P r e sident Theodore Roosevelt worried about the consequences for our national forests. "He temporarily d i scontinued the custom of a White House Christmas tree, but he eventually relented because the tree was so important to his childrenand because his main forestry adviser argued that cutting small trees could provide a healthy thinning of the forests," Forbes writes. Next came Christmas tree farms, an d t h e n a r t i f icial trees. The first fakes came f rom G ermany a n d w e r e

Gifts Continued from D1 Usually they are at a price point that exceeds what we would spend on ourselves, and that is what makes their purchase such an excellent gift choice. I did some prowling around recently and found that the Earthbox Gardening System continues to be a popular gardening item. The system consists of a 29-by-14-by-11-inch lightweight box on casters for easy mobility. The system has the capacity to hold 2 cubic feet of potting soil with a 3gallon water reservoir and a mulch cover. The system also comes with an optional staking system for taller plants.

Artificial tree trends "White and pink trees continue to be very popular again this year," said Bradford of "People who choose colored trees are willing to try something fun. We hear about them putting their kids' ornaments on them, or they'll go monochromatic. Some people do a w h ol e s ports-themed tree. The white and pink trees look good with red and green ornaments. Some customers have decorated with all silver, all gold or all red. These trees are versatile, and the decorating style can be modern or classic," Bradford said.

Live trees For some people, going green means a live tree inside the house, or outside, to decorate a deck. Cindy J effers, n u rsery manager of L a n dsystems Nursery in Bend, told us it's a good idea to plant a live Christmas tree assoon as possible after the holidays. "It shouldn't be inside for more than 10 days or two weeks. You don't want the tree to come out of dormancy and start growing. "Acclimate it before you bring it inside: Leave it in the garage for a day or two, and water i t t h o r oughly, then place it i n side away from heater vents, wood stoves and windows. Water it while it's inside, and then acclimate it coming outside again. Put it on a porch or in the garage for a couple of days. Then, if you can, plant it on the north side of the house; it's not as windy

there,"Jeffers said.

Most unusual of all: go treeless A radical alternative is to go completely treeless at Christmas. In "Green C h r i stmas: How to Have a Joyous, EcoFriendly Holiday Season," by Jennifer Basye Sander and Peter Sander (Adams Media, 2008), the authors suggest that instead of buying any kind of Christmas tree, decorate an indoor ficus tree or other plant that you already have, or hang ornaments on an evergreen swag on the mantel. Whether you choose a live tree, a cut tree, an artificial one or no Christmas tree at all, we wish you a merry decorating season!

New York Times News Service

The urge to downsize is not limited to empty nesters and retirees. It can hit anyone at any time. And sometimes it's the family dog that helps you realize you have more space than you need. This is how it was for Greg Kelly, a 50-year-old business appraiser in R a leigh, N.C., and his wife, Laura Herring, a 45-year-old pediatrician, who have two teenage sons, Troy and John. Earlier this year, they downsized from a house of morethan 3,000 square feet to one that is half that size, cutting their property taxes in half and their aggravation even more. Looking back on the unused space they once had, Kelly laughs. "It was a five-bedroom house, one bedroom used for a playroom, one for an office, with a separate dining room and a bathroom upstairs that literally we only used to wash the dog," he says. "We had a dining room and a formal living room — that was where the dog lay on the couch, that was his room." So if the dog, a collie named Toby, was in the living room, where did the family hang out? "The eat-in kitchen and the family room in the back of the house," Kelly says. "If we looked at where we lived as a family, it was the back of the house. When I thought about it, I realized we never spent any time i n t h e b edrooms, except to sleep. The boys did their homework in the kitchen. The house was a waste. My wife and I don't pay to have houses cleaned, we're justnot w ired that way, and it w a s killer to vacuum and clean a 3,200-square-foot house. It's a breeze now. We were heating and cooling this huge house, it took a lot of physical and emotional energy to maintain it, and we were not living in that space." The couple began by figuring out how much space they actually used — about 1,300 square feet. Then they started looking around. They wanted to stay in the same neighborhood, so Troy, who is now 17, and John, now 13, would not have to change schools. Lastyear, they found what they were looking for: a 1954 ranch house, just around the corner, that was 1,215 square feet, with three s mall bedrooms, a d i n i n g room that was partly open to the living room, a separate kitchen, a small screened-in porch and a classic peaked roof. The Kellys sold their old home for $675,000 and paid $245,000 for the new one. From left: Laura Herring, Greg Kelly and their two sons, John and Troy, at their home in Raleigh, N.C. The move to a smaller house was triggered by the realization that the family dog had the living room to himself in the family's old house.

animals serve by merely being present. The most common facilities where teams work are nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, schools and libraries. The therapeutic benefits these certified animals impart range from entertaining sick children to soothing veterans suffering from the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.

According to Rachel Wright, Delta Society's Pet Partners program manager, one of the most vital steps is pairing the right dog to the right type of service. Evaluations help determine the program or setting that best complements the team's strength. A pet's personality and maturity also dictate where it works: A young, energetic pooch probably isn't a great fit for seniors but might be a perfect match for teens.

The living room ceiling rises to nearly13 feet and wall of windows opens onto a large deck, which extends the living space. The renovation cost a little more than $300,000.Working with Richard Hall D esigns, a local firm, the Kellys kept the house's original footprint and left the bedrooms where they were. But they knocked down the walls separating the kitchen and the dining and living rooms, and extended the roofline from the carport, creating a great room with ceilings that rise to 13 feet. And at one end of the house, they installed a wall of glass, with NanaWall glass doors that open onto a 15-by-45-foot deck. That glass wall, the deck and a privacy fence represented a big part of the renovation costs, about $35,000. But to Kelly, it was worth it. "It's a big deck, but it's a lot cheaper to have that," he says, than an enclosed room you have to heat and cool. And "the doors open up 20 feet wide with no obstructions. It looks visually big with them closed, but with them open, it's amazing." Another big-ticket item was the built-in storage. Made by Bo Taylor Custom Woodworking, a local company, it cost the Kellys $52,000. But it includes

an entrance closetwhere the boys can drop their book bags, and cabinetry throughout the house. It's so extensive, in fact, that none of th e bedrooms have a dresser. "Our bedroom in our old

glli l h«tfU t

house was probably as big as all three bedrooms in our new house, but we never used the space," Kelly says. "There was a chair in the corner, but all that we ever put there was my wife's clothes. We never sat in it. Our bedroom now has no furniture, just a floating bed, so it feels really large." This new a w a reness of s pace has made th e f a m ily more selective about what they keep and where they keep it. In t heir old home, boxes of the boys' old drawings and schoolwork w ere stored inthe 900-square-foot attic. In the new house, Kelly says, each member of the family has one box for keepsakes. A few prized photos are displayed in th e e ntry hall; other photos and papers are scanned and kept as electronic files. Kelly is j ust a s r u t hless about his home office, where he scans much of his work, then disposesof the paper using a shredder installed in a cabinet — a strategy that has enabled him to get rid of three large file cabinets, he says. The family's gas and electric bills have dropped from $300 a month to $100, and their annual propertytaxes from $7,262 to 33,672, saving them nearly

$6,000 a year. And although their new house is half the size of the old one, it feels larger, Kelly says, because they have less furniture and so much outdoor living space. There has been one sad downside to the downsizing, though. The new house, the Kellys realized, was too small for a dog the size of Toby. So he has gone to live with a family that has a bigger house, as well as another collie to keep him company.

qualifying.) Itembarrasses me when he does it. I'd much rather pay the full adult price. Even if it's only 50 cents, I still feel like it's cheating. — Kim in Iowa City Dear Kim:Senior discounts are intended toaccommodate people who are presumably retired and living on a fixed income. That said, various restaurants make their own rules. If they are willing to comply when your mother's boyfriend asks that everyone be included in the discount, it's no reflection on you if he's the one — Write to Dear Abby at or P0.

and more humble since a stint he did in a substance-abuse rehab program this year, agreed, in his own way, that "Jersey Shore" had not always allowed its ensemble members to display their full range of emotions and abilities. "We're all very dense human beings with lots of different facets," he said. "And I think you only get to see that one side — the party side." Perhaps more than t h eir constant falling down, their drunken fistfights and shouting matches, it was the cast m embers' rare aptitude forexpressing themselves, candidly and without varnish, that won them acknowledgment from President Barack Obama and fans like Leonardo DiCaprio. Maybe it was the way they reaffirmed v i ewers' u n derstanding of a certain middleclass vacation culture, or introduced it to audiences who found it completely alien.

South has several ways to succeed but must focus on trump control. He can finesse in clubs at Trick Three. When East wins and leads a heart, South discards instead of ruffing. If East leads a fourth heart, South can ruff in dummy, preserving the trumps in his hand, draw trumps and take his winners to make the contract. Incidentally, I'd suggest that you stay in shape: You never know what you might be asked to do w hen you're 600 years old.
