If you missed the eclipse ... Euro crisis pits U.S., Germany in tactical dispute By Nicholas Kulish

New York Times News Service

BERLIN — Even as European leaders put together their latest response to the euro crisis, a GermanAmerican clash over how best to manage the broader financial crisis and put the world economy back on a sound footing has been set in stark relief. Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany defied skeptics and laid the groundwork for a deeper union that she said rights the mistakes of the euro’s birth and puts integration on a stable path for the long term. In the process, she forced German fiscal discipline on Europe as the prescription for combating the ills that afflict the region. Yet even as the cogs of the European agreement were being fitted into place, President Barack Obama issued a warning. See Euro / A4

Bend’s burning question The Bulletin

Part of the ambiance of buying a Christmas tree in Bend includes fire pits burning in the vendor lots. Drive past one on a cold day, and it’s hard not to notice the pall of smoke lingering fog-like in the air. But even though the city outlawed many types of open burning in 2009 to reduce pollution, these fires are allowed under current codes if used for warmth, recreation or cooking. If a vendor places Noble Fir branch trimmings in a pit, however, things become more hazy. That’s because the city’s code doesn’t allow the burning of yard debris, including branch-

As more dads lose their jobs, quality time with kids rises By Joel Stonington Bloomberg News

Jeff VanderHeijden didn’t expect to be a stay-at-home father for his 3-year-old daughter, especially after getting a raise and promotion as a counselor last year at a residential program for troubled teenagers. Two weeks later, he was fired. That’s when VanderHeijden, 35, of Carlisle, Pa., joined the growing ranks of American men spending more time caring for a child. One-third of fathers with working wives are now a regular source of care for their children, the result of the depressed economy and large numbers of out-ofwork men, according to the Census Bureau. “Certain projects like refinishing the basement kind of had to go on hold, but it really pays off in the long run,” said VanderHeijden, whose wife is a teacher. “You can’t put a price on a fatherdaughter relationship.” See Dads / A5

es, leaves and pine needles. Bend Fire Marshal Gary Marshall said the only thing residents or businesses should be burning in their outdoor fireplaces is dry, seasoned wood. “Usually when you just stick with dry wood, it burns clean and doesn’t impact the neighbors as much,” Marshall said. “That’s the type of fire that was intended to be allowed within the city of Bend.” Someone caught burning trash or other debris in city limits can receive a fine for a Class B civil infraction, though Marshall said the fire department will typically warn an offender first.

Syrian conflict threatens Iraq’s fragile balance The Washington Post

BAGHDAD — At the very moment U.S. troops are pulling out of Iraq, the revolt in neighboring Syria is threatening to disrupt the fragile political consensus that U.S. forces spent so long striving to uphold. As the Syrian conflict takes on increasingly sectarian dimensions, the crisscrossing rivalries that had been held somewhat in check among Iraq’s Shiite majority and its Kurdish and Sunni minorities risk being inflamed. Syria’s sectarian makeup is almost a reverse image of Iraq’s, with a minority, Shiite-affiliated Alawite regime confronting a protest movement drawn largely from the country’s Sunni majority. Iraq’s Sunnis have accused Shiites of helping Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Shiites here allege that Sunnis are fighting with the fledgling rebel Free Syrian Army. Both sides fear the consequences for Iraq of the region’s rapidly shifting balance of power. “Syria plays into a lot of the unresolved issues in Iraq,” said Toby Dodge, an international relations analyst at the London School of Economics. “It’s a destabilizing factor, and especially as we go into the post-withdrawal dynamic.” See Iraq / A7

The Freedom From Religion Foundation that is fighting Prineville’s Nativity display is no stranger to controversy. The Madison, Wis.-based nonprofit claims a membership of more than 17,000, operates with a staff of four attorneys and says it has filed 50 lawsuits since it was established in 1978. This year, the group has sent 500 letters of complaint to public agencies about alleged constitutional violations, co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor said. Forty of those complaints involved Nativity scenes on public property. “We are not searching the country for cases because we are overwhelmed,” she said. “The load has been just too heavy. More and more people find out about us and ask us for help.” Gaylor said the group had stopped at least 90 of those alleged violations without having to go to court. “It’s our goal to end violations through education and persuasion. We don’t want to waste taxpayers money. We are trying to defend the Constitution.” Prineville’s Nativity display had sat on city property during the holiday season for more than 20 years. Last year, the American Civil Liberties Union objected, saying it violated the separation between church and state. See Nativity / A6

Discoveries, breakthroughs, trends, names in the news — things you need to know to start your day.

Chandra X-Ray Center via The Washington Post

TOP: Giant galaxy Cassiopeia A. BOTTOM: Clouds of gas that will help make new stars and planets.

The Washington Post The history of the universe thus far: There’s a big bang. Matter inflates into nothingness, billowing clouds of gas. A dollop of it coalesces; a star is born. Then another and another and another, becoming uncountable billions. Stars fall into galaxies, including our own Milky Way. Soon enough, though, the process reverses. A star dies, exploding. Stardust — known less colloquially as “the elements” — spews deep into space. Dust collapses, victim to gravity. A star is born, again — and often, planets, too. We’ve got the pictures to prove it. More precisely, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History has them in a new exhibit called “The Evolving Universe,” a collection of dozens of shots from telescopes. It’s enough to ig-

nite feverish cosmic dreams in even the casual stargazer. Take the photograph of the giant galaxy Centaurus A. In its heart lurks a “messy eater” of a supermassive black hole, said Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who helped curate the exhibit. As the black hole sucks up stars, “it tries to swallow too much, and it can’t,” McDowell said. Instead of disappearing down the hole, some star stuff escapes and shoots out in dual luminescent jets plowing deep into intergalactic space. The bright spectacle of cosmic violence just about jumps off the wall. In the images, X-ray energy is painted as a hot blue, so we can see it; infrared light is colored orange; visible light, the stuff we can see, is white and brown.

Tips for good holiday letters

On one side of the goldwrapped chocolate coin in your Christmas stocking, there’s Kathleen Snider, of Alameda, Calif., who was stunned to get a holiday letter in the mail from a friend last year. She figured everyone is on Facebook now and no one sends holiday cards or letters anymore. “I have to say, I thought it was archaic. I mean, I’m 53, and I thought it was something really old people did,” said Snider, who added that she plans to send hard-copy Christmas cards only to a few relatives “who still like to get mail.” On the flip side, there’s Janice Hitchcock, of Albany, Calif., who uses Facebook but still snail-mails 90-plus cards every holiday season. “I think people realize a status update on Facebook is not a greeting,” Hitchcock, 63, said. “An e-card might be a greeting, but it’s so easy to just delete it. It feels so cold.” To be sure, the ever-increasing use of social media might someday freeze out the holiday card and letter. E-cards, apps and online photo sharing offer efficiency and the possibility of incorporating your own smiling face on a little animated reindeer doing the cancan, all while saving forests of trees. Yet while such methods may exclusively herald the holidays in the future, it hasn’t happened yet. Lots of folks see the Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or New Year’s card as a small gift, bringing joy to each friend. And with everyone spending so much time online these days, some say they’ve been invigorated to mail real cards and letters, often handcrafted with individual designs and family photos. A recent study by online marketing firm Vistaprint and Zoomerang Online Surveys and Polls showed that, despite the growth of social media, holiday cards are still popular, with 63 percent of 1,000 men and women surveyed nationwide saying they would mail tangible greetings in 2011.

• Keep it brief (never more than one page). • Don’t brag. Share good news, but avoid gloating. • Don’t embarrass your family members. Let them read it first. • Add a personal note so it doesn’t feel like a form letter. • Proofread for grammar. • Read it aloud before sending.

The Oakland (Calif.) Tribune

• Send only to people you feel will really care about your family’s news, not to mere acquaintances. • Above all, enjoy yourself. If it’s a chore, don’t do it. That will come through in print. • P.S.: Dec. 20 is the last day to mail holiday cards in time for Christmas. — The Oakland Tribune

Hemophilia B treatment is a gene-therapy breakthrough

RUSSIA

New York Times News Service

Mikhail Metzel / The Associated Press

Russian protesters demand a new election during Saturday’s rally in Moscow. Angered by alleged fraud in last Sunday’s parliamentary elections, Russians gathered across the country, challenging Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s hold on power.

Tens of thousands rally against Putin By Ellen Barry

Riot police detain a protester in St. Petersburg on Saturday.

New York Times News Service

MOSCOW — Tens of thousands of Russians gathered peacefully in central Moscow on Saturday to shout “Putin is a thief” and “Russia without Putin,” forcing the Kremlin to confront a level of public discontent that has not been seen here since Vladimir Putin first became president 12 years ago. The power of the crowd was marked by its diversity, liberals, nationalists and communists, a collection of constituencies best described as the urban middle class, a group so digitally connected that some were broadcasting the rally live using iPads held over their heads. Police estimated the crowd at 25,000, though organizers said there were more than twice that many. There was a massive police presence around the site, including rows of troop carriers, dump trucks and bulldozers, but when the crowd dispersed four hours later, no detentions had been reported. Equally remarkable was the fact that the

Dmitry Lovetsky The Associated Press

demonstration was covered on government-controlled television news, which has not aired criticism of Putin for years. Many in the crowd said the event marked a watershed moment perhaps not seen since the early 1990s, heady days when street politics brought down communism. “People are just tired; they have already crossed all the boundaries,” said Yana Larionova, 26, a real estate agent. Calls for protest have been mounting since parliamentary elections last Sunday, which domestic and international observers said were tainted by ballot-stuffing and fraud on behalf of Putin’s party, United Russia. But an equally key event, many said, was Putin’s

announcement in September that he would run for the presidency in March. He is almost certain to win a six-year term, meaning he will have been Russia’s paramount leader for 18 years. Demonstration organizers have put forward several main demands: the immediate release of prisoners arrested last week in connection with the protests; the scheduling of new parliamentary elections; the ouster of Vladimir Churov, who heads the Central Election Commission; the investigation of election violations; and the registration of so-called “nonsystem” opposition parties, ones that have been unable to win seats in Parliament or put forward presidential candidates.

Medical researchers in Britain have successfully treated six patients suffering from the blood-clotting disease known as hemophilia B by injecting them with the correct form of a defective gene, a landmark achievement in gene therapy. Hemophilia B is the first wellknown disease to appear treatable by gene therapy, a technique with a 20-year record of almost unbroken failure. The general concept of gene therapy — replacing the defective gene in any genetic disease with the intact version — has long been alluring. But carrying it out in practice, usually by loading the replacement gene onto a virus that introduces it into human cells, has been a struggle. The immune system is all too effective at killing the viruses before the genes can take effect. The success with hemophilia B, reported online Saturday in The New England Journal of Medicine, embodies several minor improvements developed over many years by different groups of researchers. The delivery virus, carrying a good version of the human gene for the clotting agent known as Factor IX, was prepared by researchers at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. The patients had been recruited and treated with the virus in England by a team led by Dr. Amit Nathwani of University College London; researchers at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia monitored their immune reactions. Hemophilia B is caused by a defect in the gene for Factor IX. Fatal if untreated, the disease occurs almost only in men because the Factor IX gene lies on the X chromosome, of which men have only a single copy. About one in 30,000 of newborn boys have the disease. Nathwani and his team reported that they treated the patients by infusing the delivery virus into their veins. Now, 20 more patients will be treated to assess the best dose of the virus.

The Associated Press MEXICO CITY — A 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck in Mexico’s western Guerrero state Saturday night, shaking buildings and causing panic in the nation’s capital and the Pacific resort of Acapulco. Officials said at least three people died, but there were no reports of widespread damage. The U.S. Geological Survey initially estimated the quake at magnitude 6.8 but downgraded it to 6.7 and then 6.5. A quake of that magnitude is capable of causing severe damage, although the depth of this temblor lessened its impact. The USGS said the quake occurred at a depth of 40.3 miles. It was centered about 103 miles southwest of Mexico City. Mexico’s Interior Department said the quake was felt in parts of nine states. Humberto Calvo, undersecretary of Guerrero’s Civil Protection agency, said three deaths had been reported in the state. He said one man was killed when a house’s roof collapsed in Iguala, a second died in the small town of Ixcateopan and the driver of a cargo truck was killed by rocks that fell on the vehicle driving on the toll highway linking Acapulco with Mexico City.

The Washington Post

Delegates to the U.N. climate talks adopted a significant agreement this morning, setting nations on a new path toward an international accord by 2015 to limit greenhouse gas emissions. The outcome of contentious negotiations taking place in Durban, punctuated by fingerpointing among the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters and heckling by activists, reflected a fundamental shift in the geopolitics behind global environmental disputes. Developing countries have long been a unified bloc, demanding that industrialized nations take most of the responsibility for cutting global greenhouse gas emissions. But faced with the fact that a handful of emerging economies, led by China and India, are helping drive carbon emissions to new heights, the world’s smallest nations joined forces with the European Union to demand decisive action from their former allies as well as the United States. The Durban agreement provides countries with the latitude to forge something that would apply to all nations, called an “agreed outcome with legal force,” a last-minute compromise that creates an alternative to a traditional treaty.

THE BULLETIN • SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011

Euro Continued from A1 In his most explicit comments on the matter to date, Obama warned that the European — read, German — focus on longterm political and economic change was well and good but risked coming undone if leaders did not react quickly and powerfully enough to the market forces threatening the euro’s survival in the coming months. At the heart of the debate is the question of how far governments must bend or even bow to the power of markets. Obama sees retaining the stability of markets and the confidence of investors as a primary goal of government and a prerequisite for achieving any major changes in public policy. Merkel views the financial industry with profound skepticism and argues, in almost moralistic fashion, that real change is impossible unless lenders and borrowers pay a high price for their mistakes. “It’s a battle of ideas,” said Almut Moeller, a European Union expert at the German Council on Foreign Relations. “There is a different understanding of how to set up a sustainable economy in a globalizing world. Here there is a major rift.” It will be difficult to know for weeks, or maybe even months, which approach is right. But it is clear the stakes are high, with the health of the world economy, the EU and perhaps Obama’s presidential hopes hanging in the balance. Economists have fretted for months that forcing austerity plans on Europe’s troubled economies — while a good long-term solution — could lead to deep recessions in the short term, compromising any chance for effective change. On a political level, Merkel could look back on last week’s meeting of leaders in Brussels and declare, “We have succeeded.” Where her mentor, former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, failed, Merkel managed to push through enforceable oversight of government spending that would allow the European Court of Justice to strike down national laws that violate fiscal discipline. Obama is fiercely proud of the record he achieved in

Now, the president and his allies say that in doing so, they may well have prevented the world from falling into another Great Depression. By ignoring the short-term threat, American officials say, Merkel is unwittingly courting the very threat they so narrowly managed to keep at bay. Strong governments can borrow cheaply, mainstream economists on both sides of the Atlantic argue, and have an obligation to intervene more aggressively than they would in normal times to make up for the slump of private demand. Germans are staunchly opposed to any solution that involves greater debt, but even more so to policies that might court inflation, their historic obsession. Policymakers in Berlin and at the Bundesbank headquarters in Frankfurt have urged restraint on the part the European Central Bank, insisting it should not buy up too many bonds from heavily indebted eurozone countries. “We will save the euro. We have to save the euro. We

have the biggest resources and the biggest interest. But we will harken fiscal probity,” said Josef Joffe, publisher of the German weekly Die Zeit, describing the German position. “We will not sacrifice our memories.” The Obama team argues that with recession on the horizon for Europe, the threat of inflation is low, and the real threat is a great depression. Administration officials, and many economists, argue that Germany is remembering the wrong crisis — it should be focused on a repeat of the deflation and contraction of the 1930s, not a repeat of the hyperinflation of the ’20s. Americans take a far more accommodating approach to the problem of moral hazard than Germans. The time for a reckoning is after financial stability has been restored, Americans say, otherwise it is ordinary people, not the rich, who suffer most in a downturn. Obama, of course, faces re-election and sees Europe as one of the biggest threats to his chances, as it could tip the American economy back into recession if austerity worsens the slump there. German officials are well aware of that and complain privately that electoral results are Obama’s chief concern.

The Germans, for their part, seem almost to welcome the collapse of market confidence: Without the rising pressure from markets, Silvio Berlusconi would not have resigned as prime minister of Italy. And most European partners would not have given the European Court of Justice the power to overturn laws inconsistent with fiscal discipline without the incentive of fear. “The Germans had a strategic insight or advantage to let the crisis get to the threshold within the European Union necessary for France to be willing to hand over the kind of sovereignty the country has always resisted,” said Jacob Funk Kirkegaard of the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington. “You could say that the crisis has either been the wake-up call or the tool that Germany has used to beat them into submission.” But Merkel’s strategy remains highly risky. She herself miscalculated when she insisted a year ago that any bailout had to include the private sector chipping in with the public sector, a requirement included in the Greek rescue. The markets punished Italy and Spain for that stance, and it was dropped last week at the Brussels gathering. Obama was worried enough to send his treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, to ring the alarm bells all over the continent ahead of the summit. But the other members of the eurozone swallowed their reservations and moved ahead with Friday’s agreement because their rising financing costs left them little choice but to follow Germany’s lead. “The countries that had resisted these kinds of moves in the past are under so much pressure currently that they see it’s necessary to regain credibility,” said Juergen Matthes, senior economist at the Cologne Institute for Economic Research. In the end, Merkel’s view clearly won out over Obama’s. “Merkel is calling the tune and writing the notes,” Joffe, the newspaper publisher, said. Whether Merkel’s defiant strategy works is a question markets will begin to ask on Monday, whether she likes it or not.

U.S. envoy: Troops may stay past 2014 deadline By Rod Nordland

New York Times News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan on Saturday raised the possibility that U.S. combat troops could stay in the country beyond the 2014 deadline that the White House had set for their withdrawal. The ambassador, Ryan Crocker, speaking at a roundtable event with a small group of journalists, said that if the Afghan government wanted U.S. troops to stay longer, the withdrawal could be slowed. “They would have to ask for it,” he said. “I could certainly see us saying, ‘Yeah, makes sense.’” He emphasized, however, that no such decision had been made. White House officials said Crocker’s comments were consistent with its

previously stated position. “The president never excluded the possibility that there would be some U.S. forces here, but he stressed that security would be under Afghan lead by 2014,” said the embassy spokeswoman, Eileen O’Connor. “The president has always spoken of a responsible winding down of the efforts here, so talk of the possibility of some troops still being here post-2014 is not a change in policy.” But Crocker’s comments were a strong articulation of that possibility and came as the administration is engaged in discussions with the Afghan government on what arrangements should be after 2014.

ARGENTINE PRESIDENT SWORN IN TO HER 2ND TERM

Natacha Pisarenko / The Associated Press

Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner waves to supporters after her swearingin ceremony at the government house in Buenos Aires on Saturday. Fernandez took the oath of office for the second time, the only female leader in Latin America to ever be re-elected. Fernandez extolled the country’s remarkable economic turnaround and promised to continue extensive social programs and subsidies that critics say are increasingly too costly. Before a full complement of Latin American leaders and legislators gathered in the National Congress building, she referred several times to her predecessor and late husband, Nestor Kirchner, who died of a heart attack in October 2010. “Argentina has made an incredible leap,” she said, referring to sharp reduction in poverty and joblessness since her husband took power in 2003. She succeeded him in 2007. “We have added 5 million jobs, and 96 percent of our retirees are covered” by government pensions, she said. — From wire reports

Hefty price tags hinder Congress on year-end deals By Robert Pear

New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The costs of last-minute items pending before Congress are formidable, and lawmakers say that is a major reason they have had so much difficulty reaching a year-end agreement on payroll taxes and other issues. Politics and ideology play a big role in the debate, but the sheer cost of the items — which could easily top $350 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office — is also a factor. No agreement between the House and the Senate is in sight. President Barack Obama and Senate Democratic leaders say Congress must not leave town for the holidays unless it extends unemployment benefits and prevents a tax increase for the middle class by extending a payroll tax break that is scheduled to expire Dec. 31. An employee’s share of the payroll tax, now 4.2 percent of wages, is scheduled to rise

Burning Continued from A1 Of the 100 to 150 warnings the department issues annually, Marshall said, about 1 percent become repeat offenders and are subject to fines. “We’d much rather be the person to educate, rather than bring down what some people call a ‘heavy hammer’ and give out a fine,” Marshall said. “We never write a citation on the first time that I’m aware of. It’s always been an educational program.”

Debris burning banned in 2009

City residents were able to burn yard debris, such as leaves and pine cones, for two days in November, until that practice was banned in 2009. A year before that, residents were allowed to burn yard debris for 20 days in the spring and fall. Bend city councilors prohibited open burning of yard debris as a way to reduce the health risks associated with having more smoke and particulate matter in the air. Local, state and federal rules for wood-burning stoves and indoor fireplaces aim to do the same, though Marshall said it’s nearly impossible to stop people from illegally burning garbage. State law requires emission certification for these devices from either the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The state can’t force someone to buy a new stove or fireplace to replace one that doesn’t have this certification. But should that individual sell his or her

to 6.2 percent in January, adding $1,000 to the taxes paid by a typical working family with income of $50,000. Keeping the tax rate at its current level for another year would cost the government $120 billion, the budget office says. Obama and congressional Democrats want to lower the payroll tax rate to 3.1 percent through 2012. Setting the rate at that level would cost at least $180 billion, the budget office says. Many lawmakers also want to extend jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed, who will begin to lose assistance early next year unless Congress acts. The cost would range from $34 billion to $55 billion or more, depending on specifics of the legislation. In addition, Congress is facing a deadline for action on Medicare. Unless lawmakers step in, doctors treating Medicare patients will see a 27 percent reduction in reimbursements in January.

home, the state’s “Heat Smart” law passed in 2009 requires the person to remove and dispose of the stove or fireplace. Bend has had a similar ordinance on its books since the 1990s. According to DEQ Air Quality Specialist Larry Calkins, it was the first city in the state to adopt such a law. While he said the rules governing wood stoves and fireplaces are straightforward, he admits that outdoor emission control can be difficult because of perceived loopholes, such as those associated with campfires and outdoor fireplaces. “For instance, with Christmas tree vendors and their wood burning, warming fires, it’s kind of hard to regulate that when they’re out there trying to keep warm while selling Christmas trees,” Calkins said. “What we’re more concerned about is waste debris burning, like big piles of leaves and big piles of pine needles, because it’s not keeping people warm.” Calkins said the DEQ doesn’t like to regulate open burning in residential neighborhoods, although he’s expecting new EPA rules in February that will take a broader look at certain devices, such as outdoor boilers that don’t emit clean smoke. He also said he doesn’t know what the future might hold for the various outdoor fireplaces and kilns people put in their backyards or on their porches. “It’s something that we’re aware of,” Calkins said, “but we haven’t gotten to the level of where we feel it’s important to clamp down on those.” — Reporter: 541-633-2160, ngrube@bendbulletin.com

Dads Continued from A1 The number of dads regularly caring for children younger than 15 increased to 32 percent in 2010 from 26 percent in 2002. Among those fathers with preschool-age children, one in five served as the primary caregiver, meaning adults such as VanderHeijden spend the most time with their children, the Census found.

A growing trend The recession has increased the number of fathers with an active role in child care, a trend that has been growing since at least 1988, said Lynda Laughlin, a family demographer at the Census Bureau. “The economy hasn’t completely rebounded, particularly for men,” she said. “What did they label it, a ‘mancession?’” The economic downturn initially had a greater effect on men than women, with males losing more net jobs between December 2007 and May 2011, according to a July report from the Pew Research Center. Men have regained jobs more quickly in the recovery, the Pew study found. During recessions, fathers spend more time as partial and primary caregivers of children, Laughlin said, partly because unemployment or changes in work hours increase their availability to do so. “It also can reduce available income to pay for child care outside of the home,” she said.

Good news, bad news The recession isn’t the only reason. Women are increasingly contributing more to family income than men, and there is a growing desire among men to take part in the lives of their children, according to Ellen Galinsky, president and cofounder of the New Yorkbased Families and Work Institute. “The good news is that kids are with their fathers more,” Galinsky said. “The bad news is that families are so squeezed economically.” The new statistics, from the Census Survey of Income and Program Participation, showed that 54 percent of unemployed fathers with a working wife and preschool-age children are primary caregivers, while 17 percent of employed fathers in the same situation fill that role. Some couples decide that the cost of child care cancels out the income from a lower-wage job, regardless of the recession. “If I’m making X and my wife is making X plus 10, who do you want making the money?” said Patrick Spillman, 42, of New York, who’s the primary caregiver for his 3-year-old daughter. “It’s a matter of dollars and cents.”

GOP rivals gang up on Gingrich at debate By Dan Balz and Philip Rucker The Washington Post

DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican presidential front-runner Newt Gingrich came under sharp and repeated attack here Saturday night, accused by his rivals of being a Washington insider, a career politician and a serial hypocrite who has changed his views to suit the times and his political needs. The debate came at a crucial time in the Republican race, with little more than three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, and as Gingrich has been surging in the polls. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney led the attacks, ticking off a series of issues on which he disagreed with the former House speaker. But he said the biggest difference in their qualifications to be president was in the way they’ve led their lives the past quarter-century. “The real difference, I believe, is our backgrounds,” Romney said. “I’ve spent my life in the private sector. I understand how the economy works. … We need people from outside Washington, outside K Street.” Gingrich parried with a

counterattack on Romney. “Let’s be candid. The only reason you didn’t become a career politician is because you lost to Teddy Kennedy in 1994. … You’d have been a 17-year career politician if you’d won.” But Romney represented only the leading edge of the criticism aimed at Gingrich in the first candidate debate since Gingrich rose to the top of the polls. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas accused him of taking money from Freddie Mac at a time when Paul said he was trying to expose the housing bubble and of being inconsistent in his conservatism. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum joined in the fray, firing at Gingrich over his House record and for supporting an individual mandate in health care. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, trying to resuscitate his campaign, in turn attacked both Romney and Gingrich over the individual mandate. Romney said he favored the mandate only for Massachusetts, while Gingrich favored it for the nation. Gingrich said he supported the mandate as an alternative

to the health care plan being advanced by former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton, in 1993 and 1994. On another issue, the candidates disagreed sharply over whether Congress should extend the payroll tax cut, which expires at the end of the year. President Barack Obama has been pushing Republicans in Congress to approve the extension to prevent middle-class

Americans from seeing their taxes increase. Romney, Gingrich and Paul said they supported it, but managed to take swipes at Obama’s stewardship of the economy in their answers. Bachmann, Perry and Santorum said they opposed the extension. “I’m completely different from Barack Obama on this issue,” Bachmann said. “We have candidates on this stage

who are standing with Barack Obama on this issue.” The debate, the 12th this year among the Republican candidates and the first since businessman Herman Cain suspended his campaign, came at a time of dramatic change in the race. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and Diane Sawyer served as moderators. Gingrich was on the spot heading into the debate, having zoomed into the lead in the polls. A recent round of polls, including one by The Washington Post and ABC News, showed Gingrich with a double-digit lead over Romney and Paul, who were tied for second. But he is behind Romney and Paul in building an organization to turn out his supporters on caucus night. As he prepared for the debate, Gingrich was trying to clean up a controversial statement he made in an interview with the Jewish Channel, calling Palestinians an “invented” people. “You have to understand decades of complex history, which is exactly what Gingrich was referencing,” a Gingrich spokesman said Saturday.

Court reverses the conviction of man jailed for 19 years By Andrew Martin

New York Times News Service

In an opinion that harshly criticizes the tactics of the police and prosecutors, an Illinois appellate court on Friday night reversed the conviction of Juan Rivera, who has spent 19 years in jail for the 1992 rape and murder of an 11-year-old baby sitter in a suburb of Chicago. Rivera, 39 and serving a life sentence, has been convicted three times for killing the sitter, Holly Staker, based on the strength of a confession that was obtained after four days of questioning. There were no witnesses or physical evidence linking him to the crime, which occurred in Waukegan, Ill. DNA testing in 2005 excluded him as the source of semen found in Holly’s body.

Nativity Continued from A1 City officials developed a plan that would allow displays representing any belief or religion on public property known as a holiday plaza west of City Hall. One condition was that the property must be rented by a private citizen or group, much as a farmers market rents the property. The city rented the site to a private citizen, Bob Orlando, who is also the planning commissioner. He erected a new manger scene there at the beginning of the month. But this didn’t wash with Freedom From Religion members, who issued a complaint last week to city officials.

bendbulletin.com

Gaylor called the city’s attempt at a compromise “a new strategy to get around the law.”

Another dispute in Texas Prineville’s holiday plaza isn’t the only display the group is questioning. Henderson County in northeast Texas also received a complaint from the foundation last week about the Nativity scene displayed on its courthouse lawn. The county believes it has a right to display the manger scene that accompanies a variety of other secular displays on the lawn, including Smurfs, Santa Claus and white-tailed reindeer, County Commis-

sioner Wade McKinney said. McKinney said the county wrote a response to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, asserting the display is constitutional in the company of other displays and is willing to litigate the issue. “There’s plenty of case law as late as 2010 that says the Nativity cannot be the focal point,” he said. “But ours is not. It’s part of the display. We believe we are within our legal rights. They have to prove us wrong.” A rally has been scheduled near the courthouse this Saturday to protest the complaint, McKinney said.

Aiming for clear policy As in Prineville’s case, Gay-

lor said the county must have a clear public forum policy that allows everyone to assemble displays. Gaylor said her battle for the separation of church and state began in 1976 when anti-abortion activists were attempting to keep Wisconsin from legalizing birth control. At that time, she and her mother also worked to end prayer in local government meetings in the state. “It became very clear (at that time) that there was a growing lack of respect for the separation of church and state,” Gaylor said. “We never imagined we would still be here.” — Reporter: 541-383-0376, dtaylor@bendbulletin.com

Iraq Continued from A1 It is in the context of this complexity that Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari pleads for understanding of Iraq’s much-criticized stance toward Syria. Iraq’s abstention from an Arab League resolution suspending Syria’s membership and imposing sanctions should not be interpreted as implicit support for Assad’s regime but rather as a necessity born of Iraq’s own political fragility, he said. “My job is to find the mainstream view of all, in order not to allow the political situation to flare,” he said. “The conflict one way or another in Syria is taking on a sectarian dimension. (Iraq’s) Shiites would react one way, the Sunni would react another way, and the Kurds would react in another way.”

Aggravating tension That Syria would erupt in revolt on the eve of the American departure could not have been anticipated in 2008 when President George W. Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki signed the security agreement spelling out that U.S. troops must leave by the end of December 2011. And Syria is not the only potential source of friction that risks unsettling Iraq once the Americans have gone. Though sectarian violence has abated and Iraq has a coalition government in which the main Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish factions share power, many issues that the United States had assumed would be resolved remain unaddressed. They, too, are resurfacing as the last few thousand U.S. troops prepare to leave.

After disputed election, police abduct youths in opposition By Adam Nossiter

New York Times News Service

KINSHASA, Congo — Police were going door to door Saturday, taking youths out of houses in an opposition neighborhood and pushing them into unmarked vehicles, a day after the incumbent was declared the winner in a disputed presidential election here. Police officers, with automatic weapons drawn, were also seen beating one of the young men during the roundup that took place in the impoverished 20-Mai neighborhood here. The police officers, some in uniform and some in civilian clothes, ran through the neighborhood’s alleyways chasing down youths; the back of their vehicle appeared crowded with young men afterward. The purpose of the roundup was not immediately clear. But it was testimony to the tension that persists here after the official announcement Friday that the president, Joseph Kabila, had won re-election in this mineral-rich nation.

“If Syria becomes a democratic, liberal country, it will be fine. But if the Muslim Brotherhood comes to power, this whole Sunni-Shiite story will start again in Iraq.” — Neama Al-Ebadi, director of the Iraq Center for Research and Studies

A bold, and some would say reckless, deal signed by the oil giant Exxon with the regional government in northern Kurdistan has aggravated tensions between the semiautonomous region and the central government over control of the country’s oil wealth. The recent detentions of hundreds of suspected sympathizers of the outlawed Baath Party, many of them Sunnis, have fueled a push by three mostly Sunni provinces bordering Syria to form their own autonomous regions. It is, they say, a way to counter the growing influence of the Shiite-dominated government in Baghdad.

Difficult challenges These centrifugal forces are exacerbating long-standing Iraqi fears that neighboring countries will exploit the departure of the Americans to advance their own interests. Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran all are vying for influence in Iraq, as well as in Syria, and they have lined up behind the competing factions in both countries. “That is our main challenge beyond 2011, to keep the political consensus here in Iraq and not to allow any other power to fill the vacuum left by the Americans,” Zebari said. But the threat to Syria’s 48year-old Baathist regime only raises the stakes for regional powers in Iraq and especially

for Iran, which already exerts considerable influence in Baghdad but is even more closely allied to Assad’s regime. That Iran’s chief Arab ally is under threat increases the likelihood that Tehran will further seek to expand its influence in Iraq once the Americans have gone, said Mahmoud Othman, a Kurdish legislator. That will put it in confrontation with the expanding influence of Turkey, which has thrown its support behind the Syrian protest movement and also has close ties with several leading Iraqi Sunni politicians. “A big part of that conflict will be on Iraqi soil, and we will suffer,” he said. For Iraq’s Shiites, the bigger fear is that an Islamist Sunni government will seize power in Damascus and strike alliances with Iraq’s disgruntled Sunnis, who are still smarting from their loss of power after the fall of Saddam Hussein. Suspicions that Syria’s longbanned Muslim Brotherhood is emerging at the forefront of the protest movement have tempered sympathies for Syrians seeking to overthrow their government, said Neama Al-Ebadi, director of the Iraq Center for Research and Studies in the Shiite city of Najaf. “If Syria becomes a democratic, liberal country, it will be fine,” he said. “But if the Muslim Brotherhood comes to power, this whole Sunni-Shiite story will start again in Iraq.”

HAMLIN PRESTON ‘HAM’ PERKINS 1923-2011

WASHINGTON WEEK WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans successfully filibustered Richard Cordray, President Barack Obama’s nominee to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, on Thursday. The agency has gone without a director since it was created when the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was enacted in July 2010. Harvard University professor Elizabeth Warren oversaw the initial organization of the bureau and was seen as an obvious choice for the position, but Republicans made it clear they would not allow her confirmation. Republicans indicated they were not objecting specifically to Cordray, a former Ohio attorney general, but favored having a board of directors run the agency, not a single person. The 53-45 vote fell short of the 60 votes needed to override the Republican filibuster, with Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., voting with the Democrats and Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, voting present.

Solar car — team power • Trinity Lutheran and OSU students join forces to build sun-charged racers By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

T

he tattoo on Kathy Han’s right ankle commemorates one of the more miserable days in the life of the Oregon State University research assistant. In July, Han and other members of the OSU Solar Vehicle Team were in a parade in Corvallis, showing off their hand-built solar-powered car when it caught fire. Though the driver escaped with relatively minor burns, the spaceship-like craft was reduced nearly to ash, taking with it three years of work for the team and nearly $100,000. The silhouette of the car Han had etched on her ankle the next day looked as though it would be the last trace of their work. Then, it was discovered the original forms for the car’s carbon fiber shell were still around, stashed in Central Oregon with the Trinity Lutheran School solar car team. Saturday, Han and the rest of the OSU team were at the Lancair factory near the Redmond Airport, joining forces with the Trinity Lutheran team to start building a new vehicle. Alex Steidel, a member of the Trinity Lutheran team, said returning the favor was the right thing to do. “Since they let us borrow their forms, it seemed like we ought to help them,” he said. Tom Stueve, Trinity Lutheran’s science teacher and leader of the school’s solar car team, said the borrowed forms

A longtime Jefferson County sheriff and rancher Hamlin Preston Perkins died Saturday. He was 88. Former Jefferson County commissioner and Madras mayor Rick Allen recalled the man best known Perkins as “Ham” as a throwback to an earlier time. “Ham was sort of that oldschool sheriff that people see on TV and movies — he rode a horse and was in the parades, and the six shooter on the side type of sheriff,” Allen said. “His handshake about broke your hand.” Born in Portland, Perkins served in the Marine Corps during World War II. At the end of the war, he made his way to California to attend San Jose State College, then took his first job in law enforcement for the Laguna Beach Police Department. Perkins came back to Oregon to run a dairy farm near Tumalo in 1953 and with his wife, Bernadine, settled into a life of farming and ranching. In an interview with Perkins printed in the 2011 Jefferson County Fair guide, he recalled getting a haircut in Madras in early 1968 when his past police work came up in conversation with the barber. The barber recommended him to recently appointed Sheriff Ron Toms, and a short time later, he was hired on as a deputy. Controversy soon erupted in the Sheriff’s Office, and Toms decided not to run for re-election, clearing the way for Perkins to be elected sheriff that fall. Perkins won re-election four times, serving until he stepped down at the end of 1986 to attend to family obligations. Current Sheriff Jim Adkins was hired by Perkins near the end of his tenure, starting as a marine patrolman and moving to the jail a few months later. Adkins said he was never close with Perkins but remembered him as wellloved in the community. See Perkins / B4

Election result is in doubt

On the grounds that there were irregularities in voting at the city election held on the 5th, the city council has refused to ratify the election and is now conducting investigations. Three meetings have been held during the past week and last night a special committee of the

council consisting of Kelley, Aune and Allen was appointed to continue the inquiry and report at an adjourned session next Tuesday evening. The chief allegation is that many of the transient laborers belonging to the railroad construction gang here, as well as a number from Deschutes, some of them foreigners, voted illegally. City Attorney Forbes contends that the council has failed to do its duty, in that it has not yet canvassed and officially announced the result of the election, and has intimated that he will bring mandamus proceedings to compel the council to canvas the vote. Great interest is being tak-

en in the matter and at each meeting there have been many men in attendance. The meeting Thursday night was attended by a crowd that packed the room. The election committee opened the ballot box and proceeded to examine the returns. They had at hand a list of members of the railroad construction gang working here and found on comparing it with the voters list that there were a number of these railroad transients who had voted. It was also stated that men had come up from Deschutes and voted. Legal advice as to what the council might do was asked, and Attorneys Forbes and Benson addressed the council. See Yesterday / B2

Like many charitable organizations around the holidays, the South Central Oregon Outreach Toy Run, or SCOOTR, is stretched thin this year. While the all-volunteer group hopes to provide needy children with toys, coats, snow boots and other necessities, it will be hard-pressed to provide needs beyond the holidays. “We need to be pretty frugal,” says SCOOTR secretary Ann Gawith. “We have about $25,000, which should be enough to buy the toys and necessities, but that will wipe us out as far as the other youth programs SCOOTR provides.”

Every year, SCOOTR raises about $25,000 to provide more than 650 needy children with Christmas presents and clothing essentials. SCOOTR’s turf starts at Sunriver and goes south to Chemult and west to Christmas Valley. But in 2010, Gawith said, a record 720 children, including walk-ins, received help. Another 75 children received toys from SCOOTR at the La Pine Community Kitchen Christmas dinner. Gawith estimates that number again this year. Additional money is raised to promote other SCOOTR youth-related programs throughout the year. See Charity / B2

RAINBOW ROCKS

Lisa Williams snapped this photo of a rainbow in Poulsbo, Wash., in February 2010. Williams said she was under a pier that had plexiglass between wooden slats, and light shining through the glass illuminated the rocks below. Williams used a Sony Cybershot on automatic settings.

Yesterday Continued from B1 The question of the amount of time the council had for canvassing the vote came up and it was decided that it was not necessary that the canvass be completed within forty-eight hours after the returns were made but that it must be started within that period. Chairman May of the election board made a statement and Mayor Coe said he favored taking all the time necessary for a complete investigation, as he did not want to be mayor for another term if the correctness of the election was questioned. Saturday evening there was another big crowd present and the committee on elections reported that it had had a canvass of the town made and had found only about 212 voters, and some of them had not voted on the 5th. Mayor Coe raised the point the council had not yet canvassed the election returns and that the result was therefore not officially known. City Attorney Forbes said it must do this before anything could be done in regard to the question of illegal voting. Council Kelley called on J.H. Stewart for an opinion and he stated that the council did not have to place on the record returns which it has reason to believe showed fraud. Mr. Forbes replied to Mr. Stewart, and before they had concluded, both indulged in a few peppery personalities.

King reported ready to abdicate

The fate of the British monarchy was threshed out tonight at an emergency meeting of the cabinet in the small, oak-paneled office of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin in the house of commons. The world should know tomorrow whether King Edward VIII has decided to abdicate for love of Mrs. Wallis Simpson, twice-divorced American, or intends to announce his intention of marrying her and retain the throne. The government has informed the king decisively that it will countenance no law permitting a morganatic marriage, so that he has no choice but to renounce her, abdicate or fight his government — a fight no English king has ever won. The king is understood to have made his decision already and authoritative sources said it is for abdication. Baldwin was expected to make the announcement in commons today but deferred it. He said he “hoped” to make an announcement tomorrow — meaning that he certainly intends to do so unless there is a last minute change. Although anything might

happen in this historic situation, unprecedented in the annals of England, the best indications were that the king is on the brink of abdication. One explanation for Baldwin’s delay is that the details are taking longer to arrange than had been expected. The king’s personal finances must be taken care of if he abdicates, arrangements made for proclaiming the duke of York king or establishing a regency for his young daughter princess Elizabeth if he refuses the crown, and details of the process of abdication worked out. There is no precedent for the abdication of an English monarch. The king was at Fort Belvedere where he conferred with the duke of York and close advisors of the duchy of Cornwall, whose revenues would support him if he is permitted to retain the title after abdication. Mrs. Simpson was in seclusion at Cannes, on the French riviera. She conferred with her lawyer about her provisional decree of divorce, indicating that an effort may be under way to speed up making it final, or that she is considering dropping the suit, making it impossible for the king to marry her and permitting him to retain his throne unhampered.

Former king bids farewell to his empire

To his former subjects wherever the British flag flies on land and sea and to millions of others, wherever radio reaches, former King Edward spoke a last farewell tonight.

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending Dec. 10. 1961

It was quite a day — just 20 years ago

By Phil. F. Brogan It was not quite such a day as this in Bend 20 years ago. The day was December 7, 1941. It was a balmy Sunday, with a high of 52 degrees recorded. It was a quiet morning in Bend — up until the time news was received around town that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor. Within minutes, the switchboards in the local telephone office were ablaze with lights. Friends were calling others, in an attempt to confirm the grim news. There were long distance calls to relatives, and to Bend boys in camp. The news was soon confirmed. It was grim, especially for Central Oregon families with sons at Pearl Harbor and in the Philippines. Yet, few local residents realized the terrible significance of the news: America’s Pacific Fleet had been destroyed. The West Coast was open to attack. The news of war in the Pacific came 20 years ago when many in Bend were rejoicing:

on Saturday, December 6, it had been announced that the Brooks-Scanlon strike had been settled. It appeared that a joyous Christmas was ahead. Many Central Oregon residents well recall the grim day. Some were in the war theater. One was Tony Alvey, now night custodian at the Bend Post Office. Alvey, a Navy veteran, was chief radio man at Walilupi radio station when the Japanese struck the Hawaiian Islands. A bomb exploded across the street from his home, where his wife, Scotty, and their son Frank were living in Honolulu. Flags, waving in a stiff, chilly December breeze on Bend streets today, served as a reminder for many of Pearl Harbor Day 20 years ago. It is a sad day for some. They are the relatives of young men in graves on Pacific Islands.

Youngsters warned to stay off ice

Parents were cautioned to warn youngsters of the dangers of “testing” the ice in the Deschutes River in Bend today by Chief of Police Emil Moen. “Every year that even the smallest bit of ice forms on the river, the youngsters had to test it, mostly on route to and from school,” Moen said.

Skiers mob Bachelor for free skiing, new chairlift

Skiers used to shelling out big bucks for lift tickets came in droves to Mount Bachelor Friday for an almost unheard-of event — a free day of skiing. Eager schussers began arriving at Mount Bachelor’s parking lots at 4:30 a.m. And they began lining up at the chairlifts about 30 minutes before they opened, said Jeff Lokting, marketing and sales manager for Mount Bachelor Inc. “This is exactly the kind of day that we wanted to have,” a smiling Lokting said, adding that crowds were well-mannered and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Lokting said resort officials put on the first ever ski-forfree day to say thank you to the community. The day also served as an initiation for some first-time skiers, who packed the lifts to the easier runs. By noon, Lokting estimated about 3,000 of the ski areas 3,400 parking spaces were full. Lokting didn’t have figures on the number of skiers sliding down the slopes, but he estimated that the crowds were not as heavy as on Nov. 29, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, when a turnout of 11,621 skiers broke attendance records. Lokting said about 20 percent of the skiers were from a still snowless California — an observation Bud and Mary Cook of Klamath Falls

The nonprofit was started in 1998 as a motorcycle-oriented organization. SCOOTR founders Lynn and Denise Hatch, of La Pine, were originally part of the Bend-area Toy Run and decided to focus their fundraising efforts on their own community. SCOOTR finds out about needy children when families apply for a La Pine Christmas Basket Association food basket through St. Vincent de Paul or the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. The food basket application includes a section to name the kids in the family, along with their needs, what toys they want and their

tended to confirm. The Cooks said they followed a steady stream of outof-state cars up U.S. Highway 97 Friday morning. Skiing as a family for the first time — the couple brought their daughters, Sarah, 6, and Amanda, 2 — was what was hard to coordinate, Bud Cook said. The free-ski day coincided with the opening of the fourperson Pine Marten Express lift, which was dedicated Saturday. The Pine Marten Lift which will replace the Black Lift joins the resort’s Summit Lift as the only express lifts installed at a West Coast ski area. The lift, which takes less than half the time of a conventional lift to reach its midmountain end, has no problem gobbling up oversize crowds. Whoops and shouts could be heard as skiers boarded the special lift for the first time. “The lift holds a heck of a lot of people,” said 23-year-old John Conklin of Corvallis. “It goes about a hundred miles an hour.”

clothing sizes. But 2011 has been a bad year for fundraising, Gawith said. SCOOTR fundraising efforts are focused around three major events each year: the Casino Night Carnival, the May Icebreaker and July Summer Eruption motorcycle rallies, Gawith said, which generally bring in about $36,000. The Summer Eruption, which usually raises between $17,000 and $18,000, brought in just over $12,000 this year. Another major fundraiser had to be reconfigured. For the past four years, the Casino Night fundraiser had been held in the La Pine Community Center. The event typically raised about $10,000. This year, the community center was being renovated and was not available before December. That was too late for Casino Night, which is traditionally held the weekend before Thanksgiving, Denise Hatch said. There was no other suitWeekly Arts & Entertainment Inside

able building in La Pine large enough to host the event, she added, so a toy run and dance was held at the American Legion Hall on Nov. 18. That event brought in about $5,000. The Sunriver Rotary Club donated $1,000, Gawith said, and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office donated another $2,000. By shopping carefully, Gawith said, there should be enough money to cover Christmas. After that, SCOOTR may be out of funds and will have to rely on individual and corporate donations to tide the organization over until the May Icebreaker. “SCOOTR continually gets requests throughout the year for grants and funding of worthy youth programs,” Gawith said. “If a request meets our criteria, we’ll probably fund it. We’ll spend the money if we have it.” — Reporter: survivalsenselp@gmail.com

O!"#$% N"&' 2 counties get police cameras — but no funds for upkeep The Associated Press PENDLETON — Law enforcement agencies in Umatilla and Morrow counties are glad to inherit cameras from a federal emergency preparedness program but worry they won’t have the dollars to keep the cameras running. The Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program installed the cameras as part of its evacuation plan in the event of an emergency at the Umatilla Chemical Depot, the East Oregonian reports. The depot, which once stockpiled tons of nerve agent and mustard gas for potential military use, is preparing for a permanent closure. The Hermiston Police Department will spend about $25,000 to maintain eight of the cameras. Law enforcement agencies have access to camera video recordings and use them to review auto crashes or other incidents, such as the death of a woman who was hit by a truck as she attempted to cross a street in Hermiston. “There’s tremendous value in the cameras for us,” said police Lt. Jason Edmiston, acting chief of police for the Hermiston Police Department. But the Umatilla Police Department and Morrow County Sheriff’s Office say they’re struggling to find money to pay for the cameras’ upkeep. “We are inheriting the system fully up and operational,” Morrow County Undersheriff Steve Myren said. “Once it starts to deteriorate, that’s when we’ll have issues. To be honest, we just don’t know what that will cost us or how long we’ll be able to maintain the system.” Morrow County uses the cameras to review crimes and monitor weather conditions on major roads. Myren said the cameras also act as “virtual backup” when an officer pulls a motorist over, because a dispatcher can zoom in and watch the incident progressing. The program installed 36 cameras total, each of which cost about $4,000 to replace. “I suppose it could be seen as a ‘Big Brother’ thing, but it’s not like we’ll be looking into people’s windows,” said Umatilla City Manager Bob Ward. “It will be monitoring public spaces.”

SALEM — A candidate’s unexpected rejection of the position of state librarian has the Oregon State Library Board of Trustees scrambling to find a leader. Robert Hulshof-Schmidt was selected unanimously to by the board to the position in October after longtime state librarian Jim Scheppke announced his retirement.

Officials have refused to specify why HulshofSchmidt resigned his current position and rejected the state librarian position. A program manager for the state library will take over as interim state librarian on Jan. 1.

A MARINE IS MOURNED Carla Buyes touches the coffin holding her son, Marine Cpl. Adam Buyes, during a memorial service at New Hope Foursquare Church in Salem on Saturday. The 21-year-old was killed Nov. 26 while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan. The Saturday service drew about 400 people and several dignitaries, including Gov. John Kitzhaber, former Gov. Ted Kulongoski, Maj. Gen. Raymond Rees and state Sen. Peter Courtney.

Solar Continued from B1 The trick, Stueve said, is to go as fast as possible without draining the onboard batteries any faster than the solar cells can recharge them — and OSU’s sleek, wind tunnel-tested design should allow his team to do that at an average speed of 45 mph. Getting to use their original forms a second time will eliminate a lot of work for the OSU team, Han said, and will hopefully allow them to compete in an event of their own in July. The college team has its eyes on the American Solar Challenge, an eight-day highway race between New York and Minnesota. Han said that while the competitions are fun, building the car is equally

Perkins Continued from B1 “I was a young guy, only served with him for a year and a half there, and everybody liked him because he was just an easygoing, fair boss,” Adkins said. Pat Neff served as Perkins’ assistant. Many who joined the department when he first took office were new to law enforcement, Neff said, and it was Perkins’ job to train them. Even after he got the department up and running, Perkins was as active as any deputy, she said, working in the jail, getting involved in car chases, and, on occasion, doing the jobs nobody else was willing to do. “One time, there was a dog on the railroad tracks going over Willow Canyon in Madras, and that poor guy went out there and got that dog,” Neff said, recalling Perkins’ crippling fear of heights. “I don’t know how he got it, but he did.” Neff said Perkins maintained close ties with the men he met through the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association, hosting an annual reunion for retired sheriffs at his ranch northeast of Madras every summer. Michael Sullivan, the Jefferson County district attorney from 1977 through 1988 and now a judge on the Deschutes County Circuit Court, said Perkins was an

Oscar Griffin Jr. won Pulitzer Prize at Texas paper By Douglas Martin

Judge Roy Bean, the 19thcentury Texas justice of the peace and saloonkeeper, called himself “the law west of the Pecos.” Not until the 1960s was Bean’s legend challenged — by Billy Sol Estes. Estes was a glad-handing wheeler-dealer who used cash from his $100 million agricultural empire to practically purchase the town of Pecos, buying up businesses ranging from a tractor dealership to a funeral home. Estes had two planes, a barbecue pit big enough for 10 sizzling steers and decidedly nonindigenous palm trees in his

FEATURED OBITUARY front yard. A monkey climbed the trees until he got mumps. Estes was also well connected politically, boasting that the president of the United States took his calls. On his wall at the time were autographed pictures of President John F. Kennedy and a longtime friend, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. In Pecos, population 12,728 then, Estes essentially ruled — until a 29-year-old journalist named Oscar Griffin Jr. toppled him. Griffin, who died on Nov. 23 at 78, was the city editor

of a semiweekly Pecos newspaper that competed fiercely with a daily paper owned by none other than Estes. On a five-person news staff, Griffin was by necessity a jack-of-alltrades, as much reporter as editor. And it was as a reporter that he brought down Estes, unraveling an elaborate fraud scheme in four articles that earned Griffin and his little newspaper, The Pecos Independent and Enterprise, a Pulitzer Prize in 1963 for distinguished local reporting. The series, which was as understated and meticulous as Griffin and took months to prepare, at first caused no particular fuss or fanfare in Pecos.

The articles carried no byline, ran under headlines smaller than those for the major articles and did not even mention Estes by name. But their description of how that businessman masterminded a byzantine scheme to borrow money using nonexistent fertilizer storage tanks as collateral caught the attention of the FBI. Congressional hearings into this and other Estes flimflams led to the highest levels of the Kennedy administration, particularly Johnson, who had been a business associate of Estes’ in several ventures. In 1963, Estes was convicted of a battery of fraud charges and spent years in prison.

rewarding and an important experience for the students involved. Too many talented engineers never get an opportunity to work as a team on a long-term project while still in school, she said, and with the solar car, they’re learning skills that are likely to be in demand in the coming years. “The electric car is the next big thing we need in transportation, and we’re graduating electrical and mechanical engineers that have never worked on an electric car, consistently, from most universities,” Han said. Stueve said between the forms from OSU and Lancair’s donation of materials and equipment used to build their kit aircraft, the team should be able to finish their car, but he’ll still have to figure out who will drive once he gets his team to Texas. Many members of the team

don’t yet have their driver’s licenses, and Texas won’t allow anyone without a license to race. Erienne McCray believes she has a good case for being the first person to climb into the cockpit once the car is finished and is willing to race long hours in the Texas sun if needed. A senior at Trinity Lutheran, McCray was out of the country when the team last had a working vehicle during her freshman year. Most of the past three years have been spent planning a new vehicle and trying to figure out how to pay for it, she said, and now that the new car is nearly here, the anticipation is growing. “This is my last year; we’ve got to get this done so I can race,” she said.

advocate for professional conduct who insisted his deputies treat everyone with respect. Perkins’ insistence on professionalism was tested when the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh moved into adjacent Wasco County in the early 1980s. Followers of the Indian guru were a common site in Madras in those days, Sullivan recalled, and were often unfriendly to law enforcement — but Perkins realized any confrontation between his deputies and the Rajneeshees would ultimately backfire. “He was provoked, but he always responded in a calm and thoughtful manner,” Sullivan said. “Lots of people who worked on that situation did a great job, but he was one of those people that never got

credit for being a calm and thoughtful person who always thought things through.” Sullivan said Perkins often told a story from his time with the Marines, when he outwitted a Japanese soldier who came after him with a bayonet and managed to wrestle the weapon away. But beyond that one story, Perkins largely went out of his way to avoid calling attention to himself, Sullivan said. “He was that quiet, nonassuming kind of fellow who was always there when you needed him, but didn’t say much,” he said. “Kind of your traditional, old-time sheriff who just did what he needed to do.”

Digging into the dust factor • Researchers are taking a closer look at air quality in the American West and what makes it vary

Part poor, part pristine The region’s air quality, then as now, was partly pristine and partly poor depending on when and where you looked — and which way the wind blew. But now a new and even more complicated chapter appears to be unfolding, researchers in many different fields say. From off-road vehicle use, which has in some places replaced the clumping trod of the old cattle herds, to drought’s impact on plants with their soil-anchoring roots, more dust appears to be up and moving. And scientists say they are also understanding for the first time the deep connections between the dust’s main source — a vast high desert region called the Colorado Plateau, which stretches through four states and is home to national parks like the Grand Canyon and Arches — and the economic, environmental and demographic life in cities and suburbs far removed. “Changing conditions on the Colorado Plateau affect high-elevation water sources, commerce and population centers with tens of millions of people,” said Richard Reynolds, a research geologist who has been studying dust at the U.S. Geological Survey, the federal science agency. And with climate models suggesting a hotter, drier future in much of the West — potentially compounding dusty conditions — the dust is also opening a window on how the region is changing. “It’s giving a glimpse of what we can expect,” Reynolds said.

Dust and snow In the last few years, winter dust storms on the high peaks of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado have sharply increased in number, affecting the rate of melting snows into the Colorado River — a key source of water for agriculture and drinking supply to more than 20 million people. Of 65 so-called “duston-snow” events since 2003, when tracking began, 32 have struck in just the last three years, according to the Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies, a nonprofit research group based in Silverton, Colo. Dust can accelerate how fast snow melts because it absorbs heat. “It’s not a mysterious process — anybody who has thrown coal dust on their driveway or sidewalk to melt it down knows the theory,” said Chris Landry, the organi-

DENVER — Oh say, can you see across the Grand Canyon? Not as well as you used to on some days. The question of how clean the air is in the American West has never been an easy one to answer, strange to say. And now scientists say it is getting harder, with implications that ripple out in surprising ways, from the kitchen faucets of Los Angeles to public health clinics in canyon-land Utah to the economics of tourism. It is at least partly about dust, something that has been entwined with Western life for a long time, and now appears to be getting worse. In the 1800s, the high deserts stretching west and south of the Rockies became a famed destination for respiratory sufferers like “Doc” Holliday, the gunfighter-dentist (and tuberculosis patient) who came to take what was called the desert cure. But cattle and sheep by the tens of thousands were at the same time trampling across those fragile landscapes, loosening once stable soils to the four winds and creating a kind of parallel — but equally true — Western mythology around the tumbleweed and the dusty trail.

Rare bird spotted in California bird normally breeds in a wide area spanning Northern Europe and Northern Asia and winters mainly in Southeast Asia. A few red-flanked bluetails have been spotted in the neighborhood of the Aleutians islands.

zation’s executive director. Much of the dust carries a distinct chemical signature, too, heavy in iron oxides. The same rust-colored mineral that makes red-rock canyon country of Utah and Arizona can also absorb solar energy — thus again potentially accelerating the rate and timing of snow melt in crucial watersheds. And perhaps most alarming are suggestions that asthma rates — though not definitively linked to dustier air — may be increasing. The Utah Department of Health said in its most recent survey that asthma rates in the state’s southeast corner — identified in other studies as a hot zone for dust deposition — had exceeded the statewide asthma prevalence for the first time in 2010 after gradually increasing over the last few years. The survey said that 13.6 percent of the adult residents in a deeply rural and mostly undeveloped region — compared with about 7.5 percent nationally, according to federal figures — suffer from asthma. A spokeswoman for the Department of Health said there was no clear explanation for the increase. Scientists caution that links between asthma and dust are not certain.

Pollution Other air problems in the West, from ground-level ozone in natural-gas drilling areas that has plagued some places in Wyoming, to pollution from coal-fired power plants, complicate the air story as well. Asthma rates have also gone up in many other parts of the country. But a study earlier this year looking at dust generated by off-road vehicle use at the Nellis Dunes Recreation Area near Las Vegas found dust samples with naturally occurring arsenic and palygorskite, a mineral similar to asbestos, which could under certain circumstances pose potential health risks. The study, commissioned by the federal Bureau of Land Management, said that four-wheelers and bikes stirred as much of the mineral-laden dust as natural wind. In any event, scientists say the new dust studies are highlighting a disparity in how air is regulated. Pollution research has mostly focused on urban areas, where air quality is historically worse, and on the tiniest of pollution particles from industrial sources, which are generally more dangerous because they can be inhaled more deeply into the lungs. The new dust problem in the West is flying under the radar: generally larger particles

in lower-population density areas involving mostly naturally occurring minerals from soil. And since dust is periodic rather than constant — like urban vehicle emissions — air-quality standards rarely exceed the federal thresholds of compliance that can trigger action or alert. The “Doc” Holliday sort of air, pristine mostly, is what state and federal records tend to capture.

“There’s a mismatch between urban issues and what appears to be emerging in these rural areas,” said Jason Neff, an associate professor in geology and environmental studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. “We’re not monitoring what we should be monitoring, and so we haven’t been able to put it together with the human health component.” Thomas Painter, a scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology who has written widely on dust in snow, said he can partly follow his own nose in chasing the story. “I have horrible allergies when it comes to dust,” he said.

A dust storm hovers over Queen Creek, Ariz., in August. Dust plays a major role in air quality across the American West, and researchers say defining just how clean the air is has become an increasingly difficult question.

“We’re not monitoring what we should be monitoring, and so we haven’t been able to put it together with the human health component.”

SALEM — For nursery owner Mark Krautmann, farming started early. As a 3-year-old, he said, he would fill his little red wagon with nuts from the local park. “I guess I have 56 years’ experience in seed collecting,” he said. “But it took me to age 30 to put that to practice and make a dollar out of it.” Conservationism and a fascination with plants also took root early in Krautmann’s life. His grandfather, Gene Poirot, whom Krautmann describes as his hero, was a farmer, an early advocate of environmentally sound farm practices and the author of two books. And Krautmann said his mother, who had a degree in botany, often would take him to see native plants. He recalls being fascinated as a child by the square stem of a mint plant. Add this together, and it’s easy to see why Krautmann ended up doing what he does. Krautmann owns and manages Heritage Seedlings, a nursery that specializes in unusual deciduous woodies and grows native plants and seeds for environmental restoration. Krautmann said his motivation for starting the nursery was to stop commuting to Port-

land from his home in Salem. “We rented 5 acres, and it just took off like a rocket,” he said. Today, Mark and his wife, Jolly, own several hundred acres, with 200 acres in field production and another 20 acres in greenhouse and hoophouse production. Heritage Seedlings also produces native wildflower seeds and sedges and grasses on a 400-acre farm near the city of Jefferson. Krautmann uses that farm to educate schoolchildren and decision makers about the benefits of native plants. “It is one thing to do native plant restoration on a farm, but if you can use that as an example for others, then it becomes a much more powerful tool for education,” he said. Krautmann’s environmental stewardship has not gone unrecognized. The Oregon Department of Agriculture in its annual Agricultural Progress Awards banquet this year honored Krautmann with its Excellence in Conservation award “for extensive work to rehabilitate and restore native habitat on lands associated with his nursery operation through numerous conservation efforts.” Krautmann grew up on a farm in Missouri and majored

in soil science at the University of Missouri. Later, he obtained a master’s degree in soil microbiology from Texas A&M. In 1978, on the advice of a Texas A&M professor, Krautmann and his wife packed their belongings onto a 1967 flatbed Ford and moved to the Willamette Valley. “We came through the (Columbia River) gorge at night, and it was just stunning,” Krautmann said. “We’ve never looked back,” he said. Krautmann runs Heritage Seedlings with a focus on efficiency and sustainability. His operation is powered by a $460,000 array of solar panels that he says will pay for itself in five years. He reuses soil from discarded plants and pushes 170degree steam through it to kill weed seeds. “We just had this mountain of soil building out here. Now we steam it all and reuse it,” he said. “That keeps it out of the waste stream and cuts down on our soil costs, accounting for about 30 percent in our new mix.” Steaming the soil frees up labor from pulling weeds, he said, allowing workers to do what he refers to as value-added jobs, such as staking and grafting plants.

ABOVE: Gunsight Mountain, elevation 8,342 feet, rises above the day lodge at Anthony Lakes Ski Area near Baker City. Established in 1961 on the site of a previous local ski jump and rope tow, Anthony is renowned for having the highest base elevation (7,100 feet) of any Oregon resort. AT TOP: Skiers take in the view of Mount Washington from the top of Hoodoo. Hoodoo’s five chairlifts serve 32 runs on 800 acres of terrain. From a summit elevation of 5,703 feet, the vertical drop is just over 1,000 feet to the base of 4,668 feet. Three lifts are lit for night skiing.

Party guest isn’t happy after finding photo online Dear Abby: Why do camera-happy people think it’s OK to snap someone’s picture and then post it on social networking sites without permission? I recently attended a party for an old friend. Of course, everyone wanted a photo of the guest of honor. Don’t get me wrong; I love pictures. But I think that if the photographer is intending to post it online, he or she should ask, “Is it all right if I post your photo on my Facebook page?” One considerate person asked if he could photograph our table and we agreed. Another person didn’t ask and just kept snapping away. I tried to duck out of the way when I knew it was going to be an unflattering shot, but it was posted anyway and I looked awful. I have some health issues that have caused weight gain and hair loss, and I’m very self-conscious and do not want my image plastered all over the Internet. I am usually a good sport but wonder if others feel this is a breach of etiquette and possibly security. What do you think? — Camera-shy in Pennsylvania Dear Camera-shy: You are definitely not the only person who feels this way. Most people prefer to be seen when they know they look their best. Feeling as you do, contact the person who took and posted the picture and ask that it be taken down from the Facebook page. Your reason for asking is valid — and if the person has any manners at all, your wishes will be respected. Dear Abby: My college roommate “Jillian” has become my closest friend. When we started discussing room assignments for next year, she informed me that she won’t be rooming with me because she wants to transfer to a different school to be with her boyfriend. She

DEAR ABBY will be transferring from one of the best schools in the state to one that’s much less prestigious. If Jillian’s boyfriend loved her, he wouldn’t pressure her into changing schools. How can I convince her that she’s giving up an opportunity to receive the best education here? — Wants the Best for Her in Georgia Dear Wants the Best for Her: It would be interesting to know how Jillian’s parents feel about her making the move. Has she told them her plans yet? If they are aware and have voiced no objection, you could debate this with Jillian forever and not convince her because she’s thinking with her heart, not her head. This may not be what you’re hoping to hear, but my advice is to start looking for another roommate. Dear Abby: When my sister’s husband comes to our house for a family dinner or other event, he immediately asks where he can take a nap. He then goes upstairs and sleeps for a couple of hours. This has been going on for more than five years and is not related to any medical condition. Should I mention this to my sister? I think he is being rude. — “Sleepy’s” B.-I.-L. Dear B.-I.-L.: You should definitely talk to your sister about her husband’s behavior — although she may wonder why it has taken you so long to do so. “Sleepy” may be uncomfortable interacting with people, which is why he retreats upstairs to sleep. Please withhold judgment until you have more information. — Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011 By JACQUELINE BIGAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011: This year many decisions and a lot of plans result from key partnerships. Your professional ties might be different from your immediate personal circle. If you are single, you will desire a close bond yet refuse to jump into a relationship. Shop around. A significant friend could be heading down the path after June. If you are attached, look to common goals. Accept another style, especially if success is stamped on it. Don’t take any financial risks. CANCER knows how to draw you in. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Remember, it is your Sunday, too. Make choices and plans accordingly. Allow a newfound impulsiveness to emerge. You bring others together naturally. Note a change in a person you look up to. Tonight: Keep it close to home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Whether going to church or meeting family for brunch, conversations strike up with ease. You might disagree with plans or news you hear. On some level, you feel manipulated. Your creativity adds a lot of fun. Tonight: Visit with friends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might feel like Santa with endless funds and the desire to give everyone what they want. OK, it is time to get real. Make a list and stick to your budget, even if you are very much in the Christmas spirit. You won’t like the end results otherwise. Tonight: Someone becomes difficult at the last minute. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your naturally magnetic manner attracts many. Touch base with your needs. Note that others are more than ready to go along with your ideas, with perhaps the exception of the one you want to join in. Don’t push. Tonight: As you like. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Step back from your immediate plans. You need to take more personal time, whether for holiday errands or just because. Unexpected developments might be the trigger allowing you to cancel. Tonight: Don’t stand on ceremony.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH A child or loved one could be determined to have his or her way, despite all your attempts to contain his or her demands. Continue to follow through on holiday errands. Make sure you don’t forget those at a distance. Tonight: Share some eggnog. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH An older relative or someone you must answer to calls. If you don’t have plans with this person already, make some. Hearing from you might be far more important than you realize. Also schedule time for your sweetie or a special friend. Tonight: If you need some personal time, look to another day! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Keep reaching out for a relative or friend at a distance. Listen to news, and be willing to move forward on plans. A sudden event could toss your present concerns to the side. Is the end result all bad? Tonight: A give-and-take discussion might be close to impossible to have. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You might be taken aback by a close friend or loved one’s caring gesture. Feeling valued, you seem to be able to endure pressure from various quarters of your life. Do finish off your Christmas shopping. Tonight: Don’t talk money. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Others run with the ball, leaving you with a choice of joining in or doing your own thing. Just because you wouldn’t handle a situation like a partner would, doesn’t mean you need to have a power play over the issue. Tonight: Is there a suggestion you like? AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You can only do so much to create comfort and ease for someone who is uptight and hurting. This person needs to reach out and accept your help. Don’t push. You have much to attend to, whether it involves a project or a holiday activity. Tonight: Don’t judge yourself or others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Whether it is the holiday season or you simply relax enough to let the spontaneous child in you out — you might feel very emotional about a passage. You don’t need to hide your feelings. What you are experiencing is normal. Tonight: Share some hot cider. © 2011 by King Features Syndicate

THE BULLETIN • SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011

John Gottberg Anderson / For The Bulletin

Mount Hood Skibowl is the largest night-skiing area in North America. More than half of the resort’s 960 skiable acres — including the steep upper slopes above a 1930s warming hut, and two terrain parks for snowboarders — are lighted seven nights a week.

Ski

Zach Wilken, of Bend, enjoys sunny skies last January near the Sunrise chair at Mt. Bachelor.

Continued from C1

Central Oregon Mt. Bachelor: Every Central Oregon skier is familiar with the mountain just outside Bend’s back door. The dormant 9,065-foot volcano, which rises alone above the High Desert within easy view of the city, is a magnet for storms that smother it with light, dry snow — 665 inches last winter, the most in the resort’s 53-year history. Located entirely within Deschutes National Forest, Bachelor has 11 chairlifts, seven of them high-speed quads, serving 71 runs. Its terrain park includes a half-pipe and a built-in super pipe. Bachelor’s base elevation of 6,300 feet is the highest of any Cascade ski resort, and its skiable acreage — nearly 3,700 acres — makes it the largest. When stormy conditions aren’t rolling over the summit, skiers and snowboarders have 360 degrees of terrain to conquer, with a vertical drop of 3,365 feet. The resort also features 56 kilometers of nordic trails, groomed nightly; along with snowshoeing and a lift-served tubing slope. It’s also the only resort in Oregon to offer dogsledding, led by Iditarod veteran Rachael Scdoris and her father, Jerry Scdoris. On the mountain are nine food-and-beverage outlets, headed by Scapolo’s fine-dining restaurant and the newly remodeled Sparks Cafe in the midmountain Pine Marten Lodge. Adult daily tickets run $53 to $73. Hoodoo Mountain Resort: A family-friendly resort 21 miles west of Sisters at Santiam Pass, Hoodoo has been around since 1938 — more than two decades longer than Bachelor. Its 60,000-square-foot lodge is a beehive of activity, with all dining operations, ski school and equipment rentals based here. Hoodoo also offers an alternative to skiing and snowboarding. It’s called snow biking, a sport in which participants ride small bikes with seats and handlebars, but with small skis instead of wheels. Half-hour lessons teach the basics of the sport, which has found a home at Hoodoo; Portland Monthly magazine says the resort “may be the capital of U.S. snow biking.” The mountain is also a regional home of Oregon Adaptive Sports, which teaches winter activities to visually and other physically impaired individuals. Hoodoo’s five chairlifts serve 32 runs on 800 acres of terrain. From a summit elevation of 5,703 feet, the vertical drop is just over 1,000 feet to the base of 4,668 feet. Three lifts are lit for night skiing. Other features include a terrain park, nordic and snowshoeing tracks, and a lift-served tubing hill. Adult tickets are $45 during daylight hours, $20 after 4 p.m. Willamette Pass Resort: A generation ago, this resort 30 miles southeast of Oakridge (and 20 miles west of Crescent) was a tiny family-owned ski area. It remains a family business, but it’s no longer tiny. Now it features five chairlifts that serve 29 runs spread across more than 1,800 acres of skiable terrain, rising above the 5,120-foot pass on state High-

es include a terrain park with a half-pipe, night skiing, Nordic and snowshoeing trails, and lift-served tubing. Adult tickets run $49, or $24 after 4 p.m.

Mount Hood There are three major resorts on or adjacent to 11,245foot Mount Hood, as well as a couple of minor rope-tow hills — plus Cooper Spur, which falls between the two categories. Sno-park permits are required at all areas. Timberline Lodge: Timberline is more famous as a National Historic Landmark than it is as a ski resort. Built by the Works Progress Administration in

way 58. No chairlift in Oregon is bigger or faster than Willamette’s six-person Eagle Peak Accelerator. This lift climbs a 6,683foot mountain that offers 360 degrees of skiing and boarding, notably including an often-ungroomed back-side powder

stash. It also provides access to “RTS,” a run so steep — 52 degrees in sections — that it once hosted the world speed-skiing championship, in which some racers attained 116 miles per hour. Willamette’s vertical drop is 1,563 feet. Facilities and servic-

the Depression era of the late 1930s, crafted by 350 laborers from trees and rocks gathered from the surrounding wilderness, the lodge is “a symbol of hope and purpose during some very rough times,” said Jon Tullis, Timberline’s director of public affairs. A twisting road from Government Camp, on U.S. Highway 26, climbs more than 2,000 feet in six miles to the lodge, which sits at 6,000 feet elevation. Today a high-tech “snow cave” provides warmth to visitors on arrival. The lodge has 70 guest rooms and several restaurants, including the romantic Cascade Dining Room. Ski-school headquarters, equipment rentals and a cafeteria are in the nearby Wy’East Day Lodge. Outside, six chairlifts serve 41 runs and 3,690 vertical feet of skiing, the most in the Northwest. The Magic Mile and Palmer chairs rise to an elevation above 8,500 feet. Here ski racers train on the Palmer Glacier through July and August. Timberline offers night skiing, a terrain park, snowcat skiing and snowshoeing. Total skiable terrain is 1,650 acres. Adult lift tickets run $58 to $64 by day, $25 after 4 p.m. Mount Hood Skibowl: Someday, perhaps, an aerial gondola will link Timberline Lodge to Skibowl via the Collins Lake Resort, a private condominium-style village in Government Camp. The lift has already been approved in principle by the U.S. Forest Service. But it may take an improved economy to lift it to reality. There was a precedent in the pre-Depression 1920s. When the ski industry first found a foothold in American recreation, Multorpor Mountain — now a part of Skibowl — offered both skiing and ski

jumping, and helped to make Government Camp a bustling little town. It’s now showing more signs of life than it has in decades. For expert skiers and snowboarders, Skibowl may offer the best terrain in the Mount Hood area. Certainly, it has the most challenging night skiing, with nearly two dozen lighted black-diamond runs. In all, more than half of the resort’s 960 skiable acres, including two terrain parks for boarders, are lighted seven nights a week. Skibowl incorporates three mountain peaks, topping out at 5,066-foot Tom Dick Peak, with 65 runs and a vertical drop of just over 1,500 feet. It also offers two terrain parks, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, guided snowmobiling trips and lift-served tubing on two hills. Adult tickets are $49, or $30 after 3 p.m. Women ski for $17 on Tuesday nights (except during the Christmas holidays). Continued on next page

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

From previous page Mount Hood Meadows: Most often compared to Mt. Bachelor, in terms of its extent and facilities, is this resort on the southeast flank of Mount Hood. Opened in 1968, Meadows has 11 chairlifts, the same number as Bachelor, including a halfdozen high-speed quads serving 2,150 alpine acres. From the 7,300-foot summit of the Cascade Express, views extend south on a clear day to the Three Sisters. The open bowls are perfect cruising country, and it’s only a short traverse to the steep Heather and Clark canyons, double-black diamond terrain that is never groomed. A half-dozen terrain parks, including a built-in super pipe, are on the lower part of the mountain beside the Vista and Hood River express lifts. Meadows claims to have introduced more Oregonians to skiing and snowboarding than any other resort. Average annual snowfall is more than 430 inches; the vertical drop is 2,777 feet. Nordic runs are at the foot of the resort. Adult tickets are $47 to $64, or $19 after 4 p.m. for five-nights-a-week skiing on 140 lighted acres. Cooper Spur: With a rustic lodge and resort at 4,000 feet on the east face of Mount Hood, Cooper Spur is primarily a beginner-intermediate ski and snowboard area. Located 12 miles north of Meadows and only 23 miles south of Hood River, it has a single double chairlift serving 10 runs with a vertical drop of 350 feet. A rope tow and two tubing slopes, each served by tows, are typical of the family and group emphasis. But Cooper Spur does offer night skiing, a terrain park for boarders, cross-country ski tracks and a snowshoeing area. Open Friday to Sunday only, except during holidays, it charges $25 for adult tickets.

Southern Oregon Mount Ashland: In keeping with Ashland’s fame as the home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Southern Oregon’s largest ski resort has named its runs in honor of the Bard. Romeo, Juliet, Caliban and Ariel are just a few of the 23 runs whose names honor William Shakespeare’s plays, presented in downtown Ashland, 17 miles north, from Feb-

Government Camp, established on the site of a U.S. Army cache on the old Oregon Trail, bustled in the 1920s but then entered a long period of slumber. Today the town of 200 has been reborn with new construction and plans to link it by gondola with Timberline Lodge and Skibowl.

ruary through October. Formerly a backcountry ski destination, the resort was first developed in 1963 when the lodge was built, along with one chairlift. Today it has four — two triples and two doubles — serving a vertical drop of 1,150 feet. Controversial plans to expand the resort are pushing forward. Reached via an eight-mile access road off Interstate 5, the resort spans 200 acres on the northern side of its namesake mountain, the highest in the Siskiyou Range at 7,532 feet. There’s a terrain park for boarders, and “twilight” skiing is offered Thursday and Friday evenings, Jan. 5 to March 9. Adult lift tickets run $34 to $41, or $24 after 3 p.m. Sno-park permits are required.

Warner Canyon: Native Oregonian Jean Saubert, a double medal winner in ski racing at the 1964 Winter Olympics, grew up on the slopes of this unique resort, far from the state’s population centers. Located atop Warner Summit in the heart of the Great Basin’s Warner Mountains, immediately south of the geologically unique Abert Rim, it is just 10 miles northeast of Lakeview on state Highway 140. Not surprisingly, Warner Canyon is friendly and uncrowded, offering light, dry snow and frequent sunny days. One triple chairlift rises 780 feet above the base elevation of 5,700 feet, serving 21 runs on 200 acres of terrain. The resort also has a terrain park and nordic trails. Adult lift tickets

run $32. A sno-park permit is required. Mount Bailey: For the truly adventurous skier, snow-cat skiing on 8,300-foot Mount Bailey, five miles north of Crater Lake National Park, is a memorable event. Six thousand acres of untracked and varied terrain — from steep headwalls to mellow glades to old-growth powder stashes — makes this a one-of-a-kind experience in the Northwest. Bailey is blanketed with about 600 inches of powder snow each year. A special-use permit with Umpqua National Forest restricts the cat operators to take no more than 12 skiers and riders onto the mountain each day, so reservations are essential. Cost is $350 per person (minimum five skiers).

Northeastern Oregon Anthony Lakes: Its base elevation is 7,100 feet, higher than any other resort in Oregon. Skiers used its rope tow in the ’30s, and its light, dry powder snow is legendary among skiers. Yet you may never have heard of Anthony Lakes. Locals like it that way. As early as 1933, the former Little Alps ski area had a tow

serving a ski jump in the Elkhorn Range of the Blue Mountains. Its remains are visible today from an extensive network of nordic and snowshoe trails. But a formal resort wasn’t developed until a Poma lift was added in 1961, followed by a chairlift when the lodge was built six years later. There’s still only one chair, albeit a new triple serving 1,100 acres and 21 runs, including a terrain park. Slopes rise 900 feet to a summit of 8,000 feet, from which backcountry snow cats periodically operate. Inside the lounge of the old lodge, a “Starbottle’s Saloon” sign leans against a wall. It’s the same one that graced the hotel of the ribald musical “Paint Your Wagon,” filmed here in the late 1960s. Anthony Lakes is open Thursday to Sunday only, except daily during the Christmas holidays. Adult lift tickets are priced at $35, and a sno-park permit is required. Golden South Sea Pearl & Diamond

Spout Springs: Also among Oregon’s oldest ski areas — established in 1948 — is this small family resort, located at 5,400 feet at the Tollgate Summit of the Blue Mountains. An hour’s drive from both Pendleton and Walla Walla, Wash., and 22 miles east of the town of Westin, it has two chairlifts as well as a T-bar that serves more advanced runs. The resort has 14 runs on 1,450 acres of skiable terrain, with a vertical drop of 600 feet from the summit at 5,600 feet. Facilities include a terrain park for snowboarders, nordic and snowshoe trails, and a tubing area. Adult tickets cost $32, or $25 for night skiing beginning at 5 p.m. Sno-park permits are required. Ferguson Ridge: Locals call it “Fergy,” even though it has no more than a T-bar and rope tow. But the location, on the lower slopes of the spectacular Wallowa Range, makes it a favorite for snow lovers who venture to Oregon’s remote northeastern corner. Open weekends and holidays only, Ferguson Ridge has eight runs served by a T-bar and rope tow. They rise 640 feet above a base elevation of 5,200 feet. Adult lift tickets run $15. At the base of the mountain are nordic and snowshoe trails. — Reporter: janderson@ bendbulletin.com

‘1,000 Places to See Before You Die’ It’s a big world out there, which makes it hard to decide on a vacation destination. The Web can seem just as vast when it comes time to research. That’s why Patricia Shultz’s “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” deserves a place on your bookshelf. The revised version of the 2003 bestseller is an inspirational tool for your travel bucket list. $13 www.amazon.com.

Lonely Planet kid guides Lonely Planet’s new “Notfor-Parents” series will appeal to the little backpackers out there. “Not-for-Parents: The Travel Book” is modeled on the popular grown-up version with information and trivia about every country in the world. Individual city editions on New York, London, Paris and Rome can help build anticipation for upcoming trips and keep the young ones busy in transit. Sample tidbit: In 1899, a New York taxi driver received the first speeding ticket in America for going … about 12 mph. We won’t blame Mom and Dad for “borrowing” the books for themselves. “The Travel Book” ($20) and city editions ($15) at www.lonelyplanet.com.

There’s no need to get your headphones in a knot with the Timbre Pro earbuds from iFrogz. The woven cord is sturdier than most, which means it’s more resistant to those annoying tangles that inevitably form when you stash electronic devices in your pocket or carry-on bag. Rubbery tips provide a comfortable fit in your ear, but the sound quality is the earbuds’ weakest link. The wooden sound chambers give music a weird acoustic quality that’s most suited for instrument-only audio. Dialogue on streaming video, however, comes out quite crisp. $50 at ifrogz.com.

With its own (removable) battery, this clever piece of luggage can charge up to four devices at once. Best of all, it comes equipped with connectors that fit smartphones and tablets — in addition to an on-board USB port — so you don’t need to worry about bringing loads of cords.

TRAVELING THE NATIONAL ROAD IN OHIO

Historical charm along America’s Main Street By Bob Downing

Akron Beacon Journal

BLAINE, Ohio — The Blaine Hill Bridge is a monument to the past, a 385-foot, brick-paved link to the historical National Road. It dates to 1828 and is the oldest surviving bridge in the Buckeye State, designated Ohio’s Bicentennial bridge in 2003. It also tells a tale of bridges and roads as they once were. With its three arches and sandstone blocks, it once carried travelers on the National Road over Wheeling Creek. It is about eight miles west of Wheeling, W.Va. Today, vehicles are banned from the bridge that lies in the shadow of the 1932-33 bridge of steel and concrete that carries a U.S. highway over Wheeling Creek. The Blaine Hill Bridge once took traffic west with its 20 dangerous curves. (Pasco Drive, which leads to the bridge, is paved with bricks from 1917-18.) It is the longest S-shaped bridge in Ohio. Such bridges were common on the National Road. It was easier for engineers to build bridges that were at 90-degree angles to the streams. Curved ramps were then added at both ends, creating shallow S-shaped approaches.

6 states, 620 miles

um at Norwich between Cambridge and Zanesville. It is operated for the Ohio Historical Society by the John and Annie Glenn Museum Foundation. Exhibits include a 136-footlong diorama of the National Road. It also honors writer Zane Grey (1872-1939), who hailed from nearby Zanesville and is well known for his western novels. The museum also spotlights art pottery from the area. In Pennsylvania, the National Road runs next to the Fort Necessity National Battlefield from the French and Indian War. In West Virginia, sites include the West Virginia Independence Hall and Museum. In Illinois, travelers will find the prehistoric Cahokia Indian mounds. The road is known for its distinctive milestones that stood at one-mile intervals along the highway. About three feet of the exposed concrete stood above the ground. Each marker indicated the distance to Cumberland, Md., at the top center, and the name of the nearest towns to the east and west, and the mile distances were carved on the sides. The first markers of concrete weathered poorly and were replaced by sandstone in the 1850s. Concrete was used later to replace weathered milestones. Historians have identified 83 original markers still standing in Ohio.

Today, the Blaine Hill Bridge is one of the biggest attractions along the National Road that some called America’s Main Street. The road ran 620 miles through six states from Maryland to Illinois. First envisioned by George Washington, it was the only land link between the East Coast and America’s western frontier in the early 19th century. It was America’s first federally funded interstate highway, opening the nation to the West and serving as a corridor for moving people and goods. It was the busiest road in the United States by the 1840s, the major means of transportation until railroads were developed. Today the National Road offers a step-back-in-time charm with sleepy pike towns, sections of old road, taverns and inns, cemeteries and more. It is, some say, an authentic experience. It runs parallel to U.S. Highway 40 and is a federally designated All-American Road, one of 31. That 700-mile designation stretches from Baltimore, Md., to East St. Louis, Ill. Sites in Ohio include the boyhood home of astronaut John Glenn in New Concord, the Camp Chase Confederate cemetery and the Red Brick Tavern in Lafayette that has housed six U.S. presidents.

In Ohio, the National Road stretches 228 miles from Bridgeport in the east on the Ohio River through Cambridge, Columbus and Springfield to the Indiana state line. It was used in the early days by settlers heading west in Conestoga wagons. Later it was used by motorists driving cars. Today, the National Road in Ohio is almost completely intertwined with Highway 40, built in the 1920s, and runs parallel to Interstate 70, built in the 1960s. The National Road was authorized in 1806 by Congress. Construction began in Cumberland, Md., in 1811. It reached the Ohio River at Wheeling in 1818. Debate over the constitutionality of internal improvements delayed the road’s extension for several years. In 1825, ground was broken in Ohio, with the National Road reaching Zanesville in 1830, Columbus in 1833 and Springfield in 1838. It stretches west to Vandalia, Ill., where money ran out. Small towns along the National Road boomed as thousands of travelers headed west over the Allegheny Mountains to settle in Ohio and beyond. The most common vehicles

were stagecoaches that covered 60 to 70 miles per day and the colorful Conestoga wagons pulled by teams of six horses that averaged 15 miles a day. Small towns along the road contained taverns, blacksmith shops and livery stables. There was one tavern for every mile of the National Road, according to some estimates. So-called stagecoach taverns were more expensive, catering to affluent travelers. The Mount Washington Tavern from 1828 in southwest Pennsylvania was one stagecoach tavern that is still standing. Wagon stands were cheaper, more like modern truck stops. Tollhouses appeared on the National Road from 1835 to 1910. That’s because fed-

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Baylor’s Griffin III wins Heisman

NEW YORK — Quarterback Robert Griffin III on Saturday became the first player from Baylor University to win the Heisman Trophy, college football’s top individual honor. Griffin received 1,687 points, beating by 280 Griffin III points Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, who finished as runner-up to 2010 winner Cam Newton. University of Alabama running back Trent Richardson was third with 978 points. The balloting was conducted by the Heisman Trophy Trust and the winner announced at a televised ceremony in New York. “This is unbelievably believable,” Griffin III said. “It’s unbelievable because in the moment we’re all amazed when great things happen. But it’s believable because great things don’t happen without hard work.” Griffin, a 21-yearold junior at the Waco, Texas, university, finished the season as the nation’s top-rated quarterback, completing 72.3 percent of his passes for 3,998 yards and 36 touchdowns, with six interceptions. He also rushed for 832 yards and nine scores as Baylor went 9-3, its best season in 25 years, and had a winning record against Big 12 Conference opponents for the first time. “Everybody associated with Baylor has a reason to celebrate tonight,” he said.

UCLA hires Mora as new coach LOS ANGELES — Although Jim Mora hasn’t coached college football in a quarter-century, the longtime NFL coach has spent the past two years preparing for a chance to go back to school. UCLA is giving him that opportunity in the hopes this polished pro coach can revitalize a beleaguered college program. Mora agreed to a five-year, $12 million contract with UCLA on Saturday, replacing Rick Neuheisel as the Bruins’ first football coach in more than 60 years with no ties to the school. “I think UCLA is truly a sleeping giant, and I realize that an opportunity like this, of this magnitude, doesn’t present itself more than once in a coaching career,” Mora said. “When the job was offered, I jumped at the chance to be a Bruin.” Mora was the coach of the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks, going 31-33 over four seasons while reaching one NFC title game.

Culver’s Bobby Mote scores 85.5 points to place fourth in the final round of bareback riding at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

NEW YORK — National League MVP Ryan Braun has tested positive for a banned substance and is appealing to avoid a 50-game suspension, according to people familiar with the case. ESPN cited two sources Saturday in first reporting the result, saying the Milwaukee Brewers slugger tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone, adding that a later test by the World Anti-Doping Agency lab in Montreal determined the testosterone was synthetic. A spokesman for Braun said in a statement issued to ESPN and The Associated Press that “there are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan’s complete innocence.” “There was absolutely no intentional violation of the program,” Matthew Hiltzik said in a statement sent by the four-time All-Star left fielder’s representatives. “While Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further, but we are confident that he will ultimately be exonerated,” he said. Major League Baseball does not announce positive tests and penalties in drug cases involving initial positives until all arbitration is concluded. See Braun / D4

For more than two weeks last month, climber Tommy Caldwell lived on a nylon ledge hung 1,200 feet up El Capitan, the massive sweep of granite that stands sentinel over California’s Yosemite Valley. One of the world’s best all-around rock climbers, he slept on the ledge, cooked on the ledge and went to the bathroom into a receptacle hanging below the ledge. And at the top of this solitary, silent sport, he was being watched by thousands of spectators around the world. From Singapore: “Inspirational, Tommy! Well done!” From Poland: “Smiles from Krakow. Keep pressing!!!” From Slovakia: “Go, Tommy, go!!!” Caldwell updated his progress on Facebook using his iPhone, which he charged with portable solar panels. See Climbers / D5

B&%$* Mixed martial arts • Jones retains light heavweyight title at UFC 140: Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones survived a challenging first round to choke out former champion Lyoto Machida at 4:26 of the second round in UFC 140 on Saturday night in Toronto. The Brazilian didn’t tap out and toppled when referee John McCarthy stepped in and the champ finally let go of the standing guillotine choke. Jones (15-1) became the first 205-pound champion since Chuck Liddell to make consecutive successful title defenses. Machida (17-3) darted in and out and got Jones’ attention in the first round with quick attacks and some counters. At one point, Machida drove Jones backward. It was more of the same in the second. Jones scored with some kicks, but was hurt on the counter. Jones restored the balance with an elbow that carved open a gash on Machida’s forehead. Machida got back up, only to have McCarthy call in the doctor. The fight was allowed to continue and Jones stunned Machida with a punch, then locked in the standing guillotine choke at the fence. In the co-main event, former heavyweight champion Frank Mir (16-5) rallied to submit Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (33-7-1 with one no contest) in the first round.

Golf • Donald closes in on money title, history in Dubai: Top-ranked Luke Donald is on the verge of becoming the first golfer to win the European and American money titles, shooting a 6-under 66 Saturday in the third round of the Dubai World Championship in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Rory McIlroy, who struggled with a 71, needs to win the tournament and Donald needs to finish outside the top nine for any chance of overtaking him for the European money title. Leader Alvaro Quiros heads into the final round holding a twostroke lead over Paul Lawrie (66) of Scotland. The big-hitting Spaniard shot a 70 on the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates for a 14-under 202 total. The 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizien (66) is third, followed by Donald. McIlroy is six shots behind the leader. • Bradley-Brendan Steele lead Shootout: PGA champion Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele shot a 10-under 62 in better-ball play Saturday to take a one-stroke lead over Mark Calcavecchia and Nick Price in the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Naples, Fla.

Kriss Proctor ran for 97 yards and two touchdowns Saturday as the Midshipmen prevailed 27-21 in the 112th Army-Navy game in Landover, Md. It was the tightest Army-Navy game in years. Navy had won every game since 2002 by at least a dozen points. • Houston coach to Texas A&M: Coach Kevin Sumlin and his prolific offense made Houston a power in Conference USA. His next challenge will be trying to replicate that success in the Southeastern Conference, the country’s toughest football league, as Texas A&M’s new coach. Sumlin was hired as the Aggies’ new coach on Saturday, less than two weeks after Mike Sherman was fired following a disappointing 6-6 finish. — The Associated Press

Chris Pietsch / The Associated Press

Fresno State’s Kevin Foster, left, and teammate Kevin Olekaibe, center, pressure Oregon’s Devoe Joseph (34) as he looks to pass during the first half of Saturday’s game in Eugene.

The Associated Press EUGENE — Devoe Joseph, playing for the first time since wearing a Minnesota jersey last December, scored 18 points to lead Oregon past Fresno State 74-70 on Saturday. Garrett Sim had 17 points for the Ducks (5-2). E.J. Singler added 14 points for Oregon, including a jumper with 22 seconds left to make the score 71-66. Joseph, who had to sit out until the end of the fall quarter after transferring to Oregon, came off the bench to shoot six for 13 with three three-pointers. He added four assists and two steals. “I was very anxious,” said Joseph, a senior guard. “That’s just how I like to play. I like to play with a lot of energy and get after it and leave it all on the floor. “These guys have been pre-

paring me for this moment all year long, so I knew what I could do.” Jonathan Wills scored 20 points for the Bulldogs (4-6), Jerry Brown and Tyler Johnson 13 each and Kevin Foster added 11. Kevin Olekaibe, who led Fresno State in scoring at 21.6 points coming into the game, scored just four points in 18 minutes and was in and out of the lineup with an apparent ankle injury. In a game with 10 ties and 10 lead changes, the Ducks went up for good, 53-52, on a three-pointer by Sim with

9:04 to play. But Joseph provided the dagger, hitting back-to-back three-pointers to push Oregon’s lead to 61-54 with 7:35 left. “Great energy,” Sim said of Joseph. “I think you can see what he can provide for us. It’s a big addition for our team.” The Ducks shot a seasonbest 56.3 percent from the floor. Sim led the way, going five for five. “Well, I thought in some regards, we took a step in the right direction,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. The Ducks led by as many as nine points, 22-13, midway through the first half before Fresno State used a 15-2 run to go up 28-24 with 5:07 to go until halftime. The Bulldogs’ run began with a three-point play from Johnson and ended with another from Wills.

ROUNDUP

Late shot leads Indiana over No. 1 Kentucky The Associated Press BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Christian Watford’s buzzer-beating shot Saturday night put Indiana right back on the basketball map. He never even got to see whether the buzzer-beating three-pointer counted. With students pouring onto the court and officials scrambling to reach the scorer’s table for a replay review, Watford’s teammates and Indiana’s fans didn’t even bother waiting for the call. They already knew Indiana’s 73-72 upset of No. 1 Kentucky would hold up. “I thought it was good, so I would have been like stunned if it wasn’t,” said coach Tom Crean, who stood next to the officials, pressed up against the table. “And I have no idea how we would have got that game finished if it wasn’t.” A few minutes later, when the call finally came, Crean pumped his fist and went racing through the crowd, looking for his wife and kids. He wasn’t the only one trying to get through the chaos. Victor Oladipo went into the stands looking for his mother, who had traveled from Maryland to watch. And Watford still had to get up after hitting the deck, looking up and seeing all the students, signs and raw emotion around him. “I was scared for him because there were people all over him,” said Jordan Hulls, a Bloomington native and the only player on the roster who could remember such a crazy scene at Assembly Hall. The last time it happened was Jan. 7, 2001 when Kirk Haston hit a buzzer-beating three from the right wing to beat then No. 1 Michigan State. “It felt great,” Watford said of the shot after scoring the last of his 20 points. “You can’t really tell if it’s going in.

Xavier’s win over Cincinnati marred by brawl By Joe Kay

The Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Xavier center Kenny Frease used a white cloth to soak up the blood streaming from a gash below his eye. Coaches from both teams bear-hugged their players and tried to yank them away from the bedlam. The latest crosstown shootout got out of control Saturday and ended in bedlam, a few seconds early. The repercussions haven’t even started. Eighth-ranked Xavier beat crosstown rival Cincinnati 76-53 on Saturday in a game that featured a steady stream of trash talking and was called with 9.4 sec-

onds left when the teams got into a brawl in a corner of the court. Words escalated into shoves and swings. Both benches cleared. Frease left the court with a stream of blood on his face after getting punched by Cincinnati’s Yancy Gates and then kicked as he lay on the floor. It left a black-and-blue mark on the annual rivalry. Suspensions are expected after the videotapes are reviewed. The Atlantic 10 and the Big East were examining the brawl, along with the schools. “There’s no excuse for any of them, on our side, on their side,” Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said angrily. “Guys need to grow up.

“There is zero excuse for that in basketball. You’ve got to learn how to win on one side, you’ve got to learn how to lose on the other side.” The past two games have been one-sided, leading to some heightened emotion. Cincinnati (5-3) won by 20 points on its home court last season, the most lopsided finish for one of the rivalry games in eight years. Xavier (8-0) answered with its secondbiggest win in the series’ history. There’s always a steady flow of trash talking in the games, and players have occasionally had to be pulled away from each other by referees and coaches. The brawl

on Saturday took it to a new level. Xavier guard Mark Lyons exchanged words with Cincinnati players as the teams passed each other on court and headed for the locker rooms at halftime, with the Musketeers ahead 34-25. Xavier took control of the game by opening the second half with a 9-2 run, and led by double digits the rest of the way. Xavier’s Tu Holloway got open for a layup with 18.6 seconds left, and the players headed down court. Holloway, a senior guard held to five points in the rivalry last season, said some things to the Cincinnati bench and got shoved, igniting the free-for-all.

Cowboys take second at wrestling tourney Bulletin staff report NORTH BEND — Competing in the always strong Oregon Coast Classic wrestling tournament Saturday, Crook County placed second at the 32-team event and Redmond finished third. The Cowboys, who scored 195.5 points — Roseburg won its fifth consecutive Classic with 257 points — had five wrestlers post top-three finishes. McKennan Buckner at 120 pounds and Mason Harris at 195 advanced to the finals in their brackets and each placed second. Collbran Meeker (126 pounds) and Rhett Smith (220) both turned in third-place efforts for Crook County. “It was a good showing,” said Cowboy coach Jake Huffman. “But we’ve still got a lot of work to do.” The Panthers also turned in an impressive performance at the two-day tournament. Ryan Haney (132 pounds), Chance Lindquist (138) and Sumner Saulsbury (220) finished second in their respective brackets and Jacob Breitling (285) placed third. “This is always a good measuring stick,” Panther coach Nathan Stanley said about his team’s early-season performance. “We’re never sure what we have at this point in the year and you don’t know what the rest of the state is like yet.” Redmond is back on the mat Tuesday with a home dual against Summit.

Braun Continued from D1 The case is still being appealed to an arbitrator under MLB’s drug program, people familiar with the situation told the AP. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the appeal is still ongoing and said Braun and others involved in the appeals process have known about the positive test since late October. Appeals usually are heard by arbitrator Shyam Das. One of the people said the appeals process is not likely to be concluded until January at the earliest. That person also told the AP that after being informed of the positive test, Braun asked to have another urine test taken, and that the second test was within normal range. If suspended, Braun wouldn’t be eligible to play for the NL Central champions until May 31 at Dodger Stadium, barring any postponements. He would miss the first 57 days of the major league season, losing about $1.87 million of his $6 million salary. The 28-year-old Braun, the 2007 NL Rookie of the Year,

hit .312 with 33 homers and 111 RBIs last season and led Milwaukee to the NL championship series, where the Brewers lost to the eventual World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. Braun already was signed through 2015 when the Brewers gave him a new deal running through 2020 that added $105 million and guaranteed him a total of $145.5 million over a decade. With seven-time MVP Barry Bonds facing sentencing next week on an obstruction of justice conviction for giving an evasive answer to a grand jury investigating drug distribution, and Roger Clemens facing an April trial of charges he lied to a congressional committee when he denied using PEDs, focus on drugs in baseball won’t go away. Still, there have been just two suspensions this year for performance-enhancing substances under the major league drug program. Colorado catcher Eliezer Alfonzo was suspended for 100 games in September for his second violation. The annual report from the drug program’s independent administrator identified the substance as methenolone, which is contained in

steroids sold under the brand name Primobolan. Tampa Bay outfielder Manny Ramirez, confronted with a second positive PED test, retired in April and missed the final 156 games of the season. Ramirez wants to play next year, and under an agreement this month between MLB and the players’ association he will be suspended for the first 50 games of next season. Ramirez, then with the Los Angeles Dodgers, was suspended for 50 games in May 2009 for his initial violation. In addition, Milwaukee pitcher Mark Rogers was suspended for 25 games in August for a positive test for a banned stimulant. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, the former Brewers owner, has repeatedly said the sport has cleaned up in the last few years, toughening its testing rules. “It’s the strongest program today in American sports,” he said last month when management and players agreed to a new labor contract that includes for the first time blood testing for human growth hormone when players arrive for spring training next year. “One of the things that really gives me great pride.”

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

Climbers Continued from D1 His fans, more than 4,000 of whom he accumulated during his climb, could follow along in real time with commentary from the climber himself. No need to wait days, weeks or months for a print article or video. The Dawn Wall, as Caldwell’s project is known, is the latest example of what has become an increasingly accepted practice among professional climbers and the wider climbing community: from-the-route social media. Observers enjoy it, sponsors encourage it, and climbers get to share what is inherently a selfish pursuit. But a vocal minority questions what happens to a sport whose ideals of purity are traditionally based on adventure, commitment, self-sufficiency and individual achievement when online interaction happens instantly. “In the last six years, more climbers have started engaging in almost-live updates from the mountains,” said Katie Ives, the editor of Alpinist magazine. She worries that “instead of actually having the experience be the important part, it’s the representation of the experience that becomes the important part — something is lost.” David Roberts, a writer and climber, said from-the-route media “introduces a fatal selfconsciousness” to a climb. It removes the “blissful sense of being alone out there.” On his recent climb on El Capitan, Caldwell battled fatigue and the impending winter on what will be considered the hardest big wall free climb in the world (free as in free of aid; he used a rope and protection in case of falls, but only his hands and feet to go up). Driving home to Estes Park, Colo., Caldwell, 33, said the route did feel different from others. “It felt like there were a lot of people watching our progress, like a football game,” Caldwell said. “Usually when I climb it’s just me and my partner. It’s a very solitary thing.” “This is a whole new world,”

he added. As soon as mountaineering was considered a recreational activity, climbers were reporting their feats in one form or another. In 1336 the wandering Italian poet Petrarch wrote an account of his long walk up Mont Ventoux in France. By 1953, sponsors of expeditions wanted news quickly. On the first ascent of Mount Everest by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, a reporter was on the expedition, eager to report success to the Crown, which wanted the update — that a subject of the British Empire had conquered the highest summit in the world — before Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation. By the late 1990s, satellite linkups and the Internet had shrunk the possible interval between an event and coverage of it to virtually nothing. In 1999, on an expedition that made the first ascent of the northwest face of Pakistan’s Great Trango Tower, an unseen line was crossed. A highly visible, remote objective matched with a reported sponsorship budget of $50,000, a full camera crew and daily Web updates from the climbers on the wall (via an elaborate system involving a satellite linkup from base camp) drew the ire of the wider climbing community. Mark Synnott, one of three climbers on the expedition, said he came away from the experience conflicted. “It was a necessary evil,” he said of all the media. But without the computers and cameras there would not have been an expedition, and without the expedition there would have been no new cutting-edge route on the tower. “The idea is pretty cool if it can be done the right way,” Synnott said. Caldwell said people perceived the Great Trango Tower expedition as “bringing something into the mountains that didn’t belong there.” But something has changed, he said. “People started to realize it could add to the experience.” In 2008, nine years after the Great Trango Tower expedition, a young climber and artist named Renan Ozturk trad-

ed his sketchbook and pencils for a few new tools that would allow him to film, edit and upload media from the base of a remote wall in the Indian Himalayas. Ozturk, a sponsored athlete who was part of the climbing team, said his idea was to make media that was “authentic in a good way.” He added, “If the people are doing it for the right reasons, it will show.” Zack Smith, a climbing partner of Ozturk’s and a world class alpinist in his own right, said he has rejected the trappings of professional climbing, sponsorship and documentation of his climbs. “I want to make decisions from my heart, my gut, my brain,” he said. He invoked Kodak courage, the idea that people tend to push harder when being filmed or photographed. “Climbing mountains is a dangerous pursuit,” he said. “When you mix in the potential desire to impress people, that’s a very dangerous thing.” Up on El Capitan, Caldwell’s camp sat high above a busy loop road in Yosemite National Park. He had cellphone reception. Full bars. The cliff is perhaps climbing’s most public sphere. In high season, thousands of tourists a day scour the walls for the tiny specks creeping their way up its oceans of granite. Before an injury forced him off the wall, Kevin Jorgeson, 27, was Caldwell’s partner on the route. He began posting updates from the route via Twitter in 2010. Caldwell was skeptical at first, but came around. Last year, facing a heavy snowstorm, Caldwell and Jorgeson posed a question to a message board on a climbing website, to see if their hanging camp would be bombarded by falling ice after the storm cleared, making it too dangerous to stay. Out of hundreds of responses, a few people with experience on the wall after a storm explained that their camp was unprotected from above and would be showered with dangerous chunks of ice. They retreated the next day.

Rodeo Continued from D1 “Like I said, I wanted to come out here and dominate,” Feild said. “Beating the (aggregate) record wasn’t my goal coming in, but through the week I looked up the score and knew what I would have to do to beat it. So I kind of made that my goal.” Mote earned $37,212 for third place in the average. Feild’s six wins in one NFR set another bareback record. Mote, who was tied with Feild for most wins in one NFR with five in 2009, finished second in the aggregate with 10 rides for 833.5 points. Feild earned a season-record $319,986 and a 2011 NFRbest $179,327. Mote had held the bareback season record with $310,219 in 2009. Jason Havens, of Prineville, finished ninth in bareback on Saturday with a score of 80.5 points. Havens got a check in the average, as well, finishing eighth with 775.5 points, earning $4,327. Havens finished 12th in the world standings. Redmond’s Steven Peebles and Culver’s Brian Bain sat out Saturday’s round of bareback riding with injuries. Bain finished ninth in the world standings, while Peebles finished 10th. Terrebonne’s Brenda Mays earned a check in the NFR’s final round of barrel racing, placing sixth with a time of 14.09 seconds for sixth place ($2,885). She also finished third in the average to take home an additional $29,423. Mays ended the year seventh in the world standings. Powell Butte’s Brandon Beers, along with Jim Ross Cooper, of Monument, N.M., finished eighth in Saturday’s final round of team roping with a time 20.2 seconds. They finished 14th in the average; Beers was 14th in the final world standings for headers. In other action at the NFR,

Luke Branquinho won his third world steer wrestling championship and third NFR aggregate title, finishing sixth in the final round with a 4.7-second run. Branquinho, from Los Alamos, Calif., entered the final round in a three-way fight for the world and aggregate crowns with Jason Miller of Lance Creek, Wyo., and Shawn Greenfield of Lakeview. But Miller and Greenfield broke the start barrier and received 10-second penalties. Branquinho made $234,518 this season. Second-place Greenfield finished with $178,420, and third-place Miller earned $177,455. At the NFR, Branquinho led with $146,779, and Greenfield was second with $98,798. In the aggregate race, six-tenths of a second separated Miller, Greenfield and Branquinho after nine rounds, but Branquinho prevailed with a time of 41.9 for 10 rounds. Trevor Knowles, of Mount Vernon and Mickey Gee, of Wichita Falls, Texas, tied for first in the round with runs of 3.6 seconds. In barrel racing, Lindsay Sears, of Nanton, Alberta, won her second world championship with $238,064 by securing the $45,865 bonus that goes to the NFR aggregate standings champion. Sears, second in the round with a time of 13.75, won the aggregate title with a time of 139.5 for 10 rounds. In team roping, header Turtle Powell, of Stephenville, Texas, and heeler Jhett Johnson, of Casper, Wyo., won their first world and aggregate championships after placing sixth in a time of 10.00. Powell earned $195,407. while Johnson made $197,112. Header Clay Tryan of Billings, Mont., and heeler Travis Graves of Jay, Okla., were first in the world standings after nine rounds, but had a time of 11.20 and didn’t receive a check. Powell and

Johnson won the NFR aggregate standings title with a time of 57.5 on nine head. Header Chad Masters, of Cedar Hill, Tenn., and Jake Corkill, of Fallon, Nev., and header Spencer Mitchell, of Colusa, Calif., and heeler Broc Cresta, of Santa Rosa, Calif., tied for first in the round in 3.6. In bull riding, Shane Proctor, of Grand Coulee, Wash., won his first world championship with $238,249. He broke his arm in the round. Defending world champ J.W. Harris, of Mullin, Texas, was second at $209,361. LJ Jenkins, of Porum, Okla., won the NFR aggregate standings with 501 points on six rides. He tied for second in the round with an 87.5 on Mr. Slim. Wesley Silcox of Santaquin, Utah, won the round with a 90.5. In saddle bronc riding, Taos Muncy, of Corona, N.M., won his second world championship with $249,914 after finishing sixth in the round with an 81.5 on Spring Planting. Muncy, though, was second in the NFR aggregate standings with 801 points for 10 rides. while Jesse Wright, of Milford, Utah, won the title with a record 848.5 points for 10 rides. Wright’s brother Cody won the round with an 87.5 on Eight Ball. In tie-down roping, Tuf Cooper, of Decatur, Texas, claimed his first world title with $192,042 after finishing sixth in a time of 9.6 on Saturday. Matt Shiozawa, of Chubbuck, Idaho, won his first NFR aggregate title with a time of 88.3 for 10 rounds. Cooper’s brother, Clif, won the round in 7.4. In the all-around competition, Trevor Brazile, of Decatur, Texas, won his record sixth championship in the fifth round. He finished this season with a record $4,275,252 in career earnings.

The Associated Press GLENDALE, Ariz. — The streaking Minnesota Wild brushed off a series of injuries — and the Phoenix Coyotes. Kyle Brodziak scored twice, Niklas Backstrom returned from a three-game absence to make 35 saves and the NHLleading Wild beat the Coyotes 4-1 on Saturday night to run their franchise-record road winning streak to seven games. “I continue to use the word ‘impressed’ but I am,” Wild coach Mike Yeo said. “To see a group like that come in and have a start like that, I was impressed.” Dany Heatley also scored and Mikko Koivu added a goal and an assist for Minnesota. The Wild have won six straight overall and 17 of 21 after opening the season 3-3-3. “We can’t stop,” Koivu said. “We’ve got to keep working, go back at it and make it as good as we can. We realize if we keep working hard that can be fun as well. We recognize you work hard, get some wins and that’s what makes it fun.” Backstrom, who missed three games because of a strained groin muscle, returned to appear in his 300th career game. The Wild were without Devin Setoguchi, Cal Clutterbuck and Josh Harding, all of whom missed their second consecutive game with unspecified injuries. “It’s the character of our guys,” Yeo said. “There’s a ton of character in that room and they just like challenges.” Lauri Korpikoski scored with 3:57 to play for the Coyotes, who have lost two straight and four of six. “It wasn’t as if we didn’t try,” said Phoenix coach Dave Tippett, whose team has been outscored 9-3 in its past two games. “I mean, we had a lot of guys try hard. But trying is one thing. It’s what you do after the trying that counts and their opportunities counted and ours didn’t.” Brodziak struck early, tucking home a rebound off Mike Smith’s glove for a power-play goal at 2:08 of the first — 4 sec-

onds after Keith Yandle was sent off for high-sticking. “It feels good to contribute but that’s just a product of what we’re doing,” Brodziak said. The Wild struck quickly again in the second, making it 2-0 when Koivu took a pass from Jeff Taffe at the top of the left circle and pushed a one-timer past Smith for his seventh goal and team-leading 21st point. Brodziak added his second at 11:43 of the second, scooping up a loose puck to the right of the net and beating Smith on a wraparound for his 10th goal. “Why not,” asked Yeo, when Brodziak’s position as the team’s leading scorer was mentioned. “Why couldn’t he be?

Lakers pull out of trade talks for Paul, still looking at Howard

Blazers hit by news about Roy, Oden and Aldridge

From wire reports Attempts to revive a blockbuster trade that would send Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers died Saturday night, leaving the teams frustrated and Paul’s fate uncertain. “The deal is in jeopardy,” a person with direct knowledge of the negotiations said late Saturday. A short time later, the talks ended altogether, with the Lakers refusing to meet the NBA’s demands on a return package for Paul, the New Orleans Hornets’ star guard. The NBA owns the Hornets and is exercising authority over personnel moves. With the talks over, the Lakers agreed to send Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for a trade exception that can be used in later deals. Odom had been a key piece of the Lakers’ proposed trade for Paul. The Lakers, the Hornets and the Houston Rockets had been trying for two days to arrange a new deal after Commissioner David Stern vetoed their first attempt Thursday night. Under the original proposal, the Hornets would have received Odom and three Rockets players — Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic — and a 2012 firstround pick belonging to the Knicks. Houston would have received Pau Gasol from the Lakers. Although the Hornets’ front office approved the deal, it was overruled by Stern and his basketball advisers in the league office, who considered the return package insufficient. The league directed the Hornets to seek younger players and draft picks from the Rockets and the Lakers. When the Lakers balked at the league’s demand Saturday, the deal fell apart, according to the person with knowledge of the talks. It is not clear precisely what the NBA — through the Hornets — demanded, but the immediate speculation was that the league wanted the Lakers to give up Andrew Bynum, their promising young center. The Lakers want to hold onto Bynum, to pair with Paul for the future or as the main chip in a trade for Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic center, who is asking to be

It was once hoped that the trio of Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden would lead Portland to an NBA championship. That possibility was shattered when Roy unexpectedly decided to retire because of ongoing knee problems, Oden suffered another medical setback and Aldridge had a minor procedure to treat a heart condition. The bad news blew up on the Trail Blazers when they opened training camp for the lockout-shortened season on Friday. But it was Roy’s sudden departure that most stunned the team, their fans and the rest of the NBA. Roy issued a statement through the Blazers on Saturday morning. The three-time All-Star said he would seek a determination that he’s suffered a career-ending injury to his knees “pursuant to the rules of the collective bargaining agreement.” “My family and health are most important to me and in the end this decision was about them and my quality of life,” Roy said. The Blazers could still use the NBA’s new amnesty clause to waive Roy, but as of Friday night, the team was still looking at its options, acting general manager Chad Buchanan said. Team owner Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, also weighed in with a statement Saturday. He thanked Roy for his five seasons in Portland. “Like every Blazer fan, I am very sad to learn that Brandon’s playing days have ended. Up until Thursday night we were looking forward to seeing him back on the court Friday for the first day of practice,” Allen said. Roy has been dogged by pain for the past two seasons, explaining in the past that he lacks cartilage between the bones in his knees. He sat for stretches of last season because of soreness and had arthroscopic surgery on both knees last January. He returned to end the season with a career-low average of 12.2 points in 47 games. Miami’s Dwayne Wade paid tribute to Roy on Twitter: “I want 2 show my respect 2 1 of the best 2 guards 2day. The game will miss Brandon Roy as much as he will miss the game.” The Blazers were also blindsided by the reports about Oden, who by all accounts was progressing well after microfracture surgery on his left knee. There was speculation that the often-

traded. Otis Smith, the Orlando Magic general manager, made Howard’s request public Saturday afternoon in an interview with The Orlando Sentinel. Howard listed the Lakers, the Nets and the Mavericks as his preferred teams. Having already given Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, permission to talk to the teams, Smith said the Magic was open to offers. “We wouldn’t be who we are if we don’t take a look around all 29 teams and try to make the best deal for the Orlando Magic,” Smith said. Howard dropped hints about the Lakers before increasing scrutiny obliged him to adopt a neutral position last season, claiming that his preference was to stay in Orlando. Internet sites are now full of suggestions that the Nets are his first choice. Some deals are getting done: Tyson Chandler joined the New York Knicks via a sign-and-trade in a three-team deal and Boston resigned Jeff Green — but most of the focus remained on the status of the two All-Stars. Until those situations are cleared up, business is moving slowly around the NBA. Top free agents such as Nene and Marc Gasol remain unsigned and other transactions will wait, with one agent

describing the free agency process thus far as like “molasses.” With little time between the ratification of the new collective bargaining agreement and the Christmas season openers, the NBA had training camps and free agency open Friday. But because so many transactions still haven’t been completed, teams are being left short-handed as they begin preparations. The Knicks had only six players practicing as they maneuvered to fit in Chandler. The Hornets were similarly limited. “The league is just so backlogged, everybody is doing the same thing,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers, whose Celtics will visit the Knicks in the NBA season opener. “It’s hard. I haven’t looked, but I think some teams only have five or six guys.” The Chicago Bulls are waiting to add a piece, believed to be Richard Hamilton once his buyout from the Detroit Pistons is complete. Team officials couldn’t talk about him, but center Joakim Noah is sure the front office will make the right move. “I think Rip’s a hell of a player,” Noah said. “I have confidence they are doing the right things. For us, the only thing we can do is work hard.”

By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

injured 7-foot center might be ready to play in late January. A restricted free agent, he had even agreed to accept the Blazers’ $8.9 million qualifying offer for another year with the Blazers — the team that drafted him with the No. 1 pick in the 2007 draft and stood by him through numerous injuries. But on Friday Buchanan announced Oden had suffered another setback, revealed during an MRI of his surgically repaired knee. Buchanan would not say whether Oden could need additional surgery, or whether Oden would play this season. “We’re hopeful that Greg can get back out on the court this year — maybe not quite as optimistic as we were before — but we feel like Greg Oden is worth that risk for one more year,” Buchanan said. In light of the latest developments, the Blazers and Oden agreed to a restructured one-year contract, after which Oden becomes an unrestricted free agent. To top off the Blazers’ woes, Aldridge whet to a routine exam by his cardiologist on Friday and it was determined that he should undergo a procedure to treat Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, a condition which causes the ventricles of the heart to contract prematurely. The Blazers say he should miss less than two weeks and should be ready for the team’s opener on Dec. 26. Aldridge was first diagnosed with the condition in 2007. He had a similar procedure, and missed the final nine games of the 2006-07 season. Late Friday Aldridge posted to Twitter account: “Thanks for the support everybody. I’m feeling better and will be ready to go in a few days.” The 6-foot-11 forward from Texas led the team with 21.8 points and 8.8 rebounds per game last season, the best averages of his five-year NBA career. He had 36 double-doubles. Meanwhile, the Trail Blazers are left to embark on the lockout-shortened season with a young roster and depth questions. The Blazers are already over the salary cap, which limits their moves on the free agency market. “I still believe in the core of this team. It’s not going to be easy. We’ll have to rely on some younger players to step up off the bench for us,” Buchanan said. “We’ve been through a lot of challenges the last few years and I have no doubt (coach Nate McMillan) will rally the troops and get our guys going this year.”

L

ast week we commemorated Pearl Harbor Day, as we should. It was the 70th anniversary of the “date which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin Roosevelt declared. Four years later and a world changed forever, the United States and its allies emerged victorious, though hardly unscathed, over the Axis powers led by Germany and Japan. The war that changed the world also changed our country. A credible view is that the United States emerged from isolation as the world’s only sustainable superpower, broadly available higher education was launched through the GI Bill, women found gratifying, non-domestic employment in the wartime, war industry workplace and the nation began to grudgingly realize that you could no longer deny full citizenship to black Americans, many of whom distinguished themselves in service to their country. It is a tragic date to remember, but it was also the dawn of a new world. Can any day in our history compare to, or surpass the impact of Dec. 7, 1941? Many folks suggest 9/11. No doubt an earthshaking and painful day, but is it really the equal? Granted they raised the stakes, but terrorists have been around a long time. And we have retaliated often, and Patriot Act-like, altered our assumptions about civil liberties and freedom. Alien and sedition laws, and their like, share a rich American tradition, not to be outdone by Lincoln’s suspension of habeas corpus. There’s Guantanamo; but there’s Andersonville. Another day that comes close in terms of lasting importance, it could be argued, occurred during the Revolutionary War. I’m shamelessly stealing this idea from David Hackett Fischer’s brilliant book, “Washington’s Crossing,” a Pulitzer Prize winner. The Continental Army under Washington had been repeatedly routed, the British were in control of the central states, and Philadelphia, the center of government, was about to be occupied. In other words, the revolution was within a thread of being squashed and the new nation stillborn. Washington led his depleted, demoralized army across the Delaware River and whipped Hessian mercenaries at Trenton and British regulars at Princeton. Though the war had a long way to go, without those improbable, morale-boosting victories, our national anthem today would likely be “God Save the Queen.” The date I believe is the equal occurred nearly a century later on April 9, 1865. If it were so named, it would be Appomattox Day. Unlike the others, it is the end of a war, a war that caused greater death and destruction for Americans than any other. Astonishingly, the total American casualties in the Civil War nearly equal the total American casualties in all other wars combined. Appomattox is the place in Virginia where Gen. Ulysses Grant accepted the surrender of Gen. Robert E. Lee, all but guaranteeing a United States. Grant, a voracious if unimaginative commoner of the first order, gave generous terms to his formidable opponent, a military idol and member of one of the most prominent families in American history. The muddy loyalist respects the wishes of the gilded traitor at the home of a war refugee southwest of Richmond. Lee tells his troops to go home, don’t retreat into guerilla warfare, and try to be good citizens of the renewed union. He fears, but escapes imprisonment or hanging. Grant orders rations for the near starving confederate troops. The union troops salute their respected foe. To say there were tough times ahead is to insult the concept. There was Reconstruction, the Klan, Jim Crow and lynchings. But there was also the civil rights movement, voting rights and the revitalization of a post-segregation South. Most importantly, there was one nation, the indispensable condition of all our future success. And it was confirmed in a two-hour surrender meeting between former compatriots in a little house in Virginia. If only as a metaphor, there is no equal. — John Costa is editor-in-chief of The Bulletin. Contact: 541-383-0337, jcosta@bendbulletin.com

Digging up China’s NUCLEAR secret Evidence of China’s nuclear storage system

RUSSIA

The military branch in charge of China’s nuclear arsenal has acknowledged building a network of tunnels more than 3,000 miles long. For the past three years, a team of Georgetown University students has studied those tunnels, led by their professor, a former senior Pentagon strategist. Using translated documents, satellite imagery and online video reports, the students and their professor concluded that China could have many more nuclear weapons than previously assumed hidden in those tunnels.

THE WORLD’S NUCLEAR STOCKPILES, 2011 While some countries share numbers about their nuclear arsenals, China has maintained strict secrecy. In past years, government and independent studies have estimated the number of China’s nuclear warheads at anywhere from 80 to 400. The Georgetown study argues that a much greater number may be hidden in China’s tunnels.

E!"#$%"&'( Regional plan is a start for aiding the homeless L

ots of agencies in Central Oregon, from private charities to Central Oregon Housing Works, deal with home-

lessness in the region. Now, though, thanks to the area’s first comprehensive plan to deal with the problem, they’ll work together to solve it.

Homelessness has been a growing problem, not just in Central Oregon but nationally, for years. Supports that used to keep those with mental illnesses sheltered and safe have largely disappeared. More recently, a weak economy has pushed many who were on the edge of homelessness onto the street. Yet dealing with homelessness has often been left to nonprofit agencies, among them the Partnership to End Poverty, Central Oregon Veterans Outreach and Bethlehem Inn. City and county governments generally have not put much effort into improving the situation. That should change, thanks to the combined efforts of the three counties, several state agencies, cities and the nonprofit community, including the Homeless Leadership Coalition. Together, they’ve drawn up a 10-year plan to address homelessness and created a roadmap to put the plan into effect. Will it work? A chunk of what’s needed will require new money that must come from state and federal sources, though some will be local. Federal money provides virtually all the dollars that go to

subsidizing rent, for example, and the waiting list for such assistance is long. And so on. Other, less visible steps, are less expensive. As one example, some homeless people have no valid identification, barring them from obtaining driver’s licenses, bank accounts or food stamps. Providing help getting the things needed to obtain identification will require mailing sites in each community, among other things. Yet those involved with the project are hopeful. A regional plan backed by government is a far greater commitment to solving homelessness problems than has been made in the past, they note. And while much hinges on money, they say the plan is a living one, a document that can be updated and altered as circumstances change. They argue that without setting the bar high — and eliminating the problem in a single decade is a high bar indeed — no progress would be made. They have set the bar high. They may not get there in 10 years, but without a unified plan, they would get nowhere.

High school conference has some big pluses

I

t’s no simple matter to decide how the more than 200 high schools in Oregon should compete in sports and activities. The schools are different sizes. They are spread out. The sizes, the distances and the barrier of the Cascades can make forming competitive leagues a headache. Those challenges make the recent decision by the Oregon School Activities Association all the more refreshing. The OSAA decided to put Redmond’s new high school, Ridgeview, in a hybrid Intermountain Conference along with Redmond High School, Crook County, Bend, Mountain View and Summit. That creates a six-league rivalry across Central Oregon. Importantly, it should make competing cheaper for schools and make for less travel for the students. Those are some big pluses. Teams from Crook County had been making a three-hour trip to North Portland to compete against Roosevelt to qualify for state playoffs.

The roundtrip costs could be at least $450. But now teams can just travel to Redmond to play Ridgeview. There are some minuses, too. Some of the games and activities within the IMC may be one-sided because it contains schools of different sizes. Also the OSAA decision doesn’t eliminate the need for schools in the IMC to travel to play teams in other conferences. It cuts down on it. The OSAA has a complicated system of hybrid conferences, power rankings and playoffs. It’s so complicated that even coaches can get confused about which games really matter. Complicated doesn’t necessarily mean bad. But next year, the OSAA is going to be looking at it again, trying to find a way to make it better. It’s encouraging that the OSAA’s recent decision shows it recognizes that it’s not all about perfectly balanced competition. It’s also about money and travel time.

Walden does plenty to serve Oregon By Edward L. Kimball wish to rise to the defense of our fine legislator in the U.S. House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress! He represents our part of the state. There was an In My View column in September, “Is Greg Walden doing enough?” I am writing to bear witness that he does more than enough and then some! I have followed his career for some time, and I admire most of his positions on the laws that he supports. He has a rating of 46 percent from the Heritage Foundation, which rates our legislators nationally on issues that have to do with spending bills and all other legislation that affects a conservative viewpoint, whereas our two U.S. senators have a rating of just 2 and 5 percent. He is our only member in the Oregon delegation who is a Republican and tries to put a lid on the out of control spending put upon us constantly. The latest being millions in bonus monies to the head executives in charge of the failed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac housing mortgage programs that led us into the housing debacle by encouraging lending institutions to lend to persons not qualified on the basis of income or assets. I’ll itemize a few of his major contributions: 1. He has been in the corner of veterans and seniors to the hilt. Recently received a couple of two-page letters regarding his activities in

I

IN MY VIEW these areas, particularly in the field of the bonuses due our National Guard which were being withheld and housing vouchers for veterans in several cities. 2. He has made himself available to constituents through more than 12 meetings across his territory and has a hotline for questions and comments and complaints — and offices in Bend besides a staff in Washington, D.C., and offices in several other cities in his territory. 3. He has recently completed an extensive tour of the Middle East and reported to his constituents by two-page letter with some astute observations and suggestions on the Israeli and Palestinian situation. 4. He has been active in trying to get monies for schools to replace funds no longer available from timber receipts. 5. He can be reached in Washington at 202-225-6730 and in Bend at 541-389-4408. 6. He is in the news very often in The Bulletin regarding frontline issues. It has come to my attention recently that nationally more than 2,500 service personnel serving their country in the armed forces have had their homes foreclosed upon — probably some from Central Oregon. This was gleaned from

a national news service. These actions are criminal, and I hope Greg Walden will look into this situation ASAP and in-depth to discover how this was allowed to occur. Either with the House Armed Services Committee or whatever entity is involved in this investigation. This is indeed a hideous situation and should be remedied forthwith. We understand that the amount of funds for the defense department is part of the cutting plans being discussed in the House and Senate. In the present world situation, particularly with the bad and worsening situation with Pakistan, we certainly do not need to cut appropriations for our armed forces. Having to send National Guard units to fight in the Middle East was certainly not the use considered when this force was set up for use in domestic situations. This use of the National Guard is a definite indication of the weakness of our armed forces. Greg Walden is no doubt on the right side of this issue. No cuts! In summary, he is doing an outstanding job for us and our vital interests while trying to limit further spending in all areas possible. The above mentioned column maligned him on issues that he cannot influence and ignored his many good works. — Edward L. Kimball is a World War II veteran of the U.S. Marines and lives in Redmond.

Joining a dinner in a Muslim Brotherhood home CAIRO — f you want to understand the Islamic forces that are gaining strength in Egypt and scaring people here and abroad, let me tell you about my dinner in the home of Muslim Brotherhood activists. First, meet my hostess: Sondos Asem, a 24-year-old woman who is pretty much the opposite of the stereotypical bearded Brotherhood activist. Sondos is a middle-class graduate of the American University in Cairo, where I studied in the early 1980s (“that’s before I was born,” she said wonderingly, making me feel particularly decrepit). She speaks perfect English, is writing a master’s thesis on social media, and helps run the Brotherhood’s English-language Twitter feed, @Ikhwanweb. The Muslim Brotherhood has emerged as the dominant political party in parliamentary voting because of people like Sondos and her family. My interviews with supporters suggest that the Brotherhood is far more complex than the caricature that scares many Americans.

I

NICHOLAS KRISTOF Sondos rails at the Western presumption that the Muslim Brotherhood would oppress women. She notes that her own mother, Manal Abul Hassan, is one of many female Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated candidates running for Parliament. “It’s a big misconception that the Muslim Brotherhood marginalizes women,” Sondos said. “Fifty percent of the Brotherhood are women.” I told Sondos that Westerners are fearful partly because they have watched the authorities oppress women in the name of Islam in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan. “I don’t think Egypt can ever be compared to Saudi Arabia or Iran or Afghanistan,” she replied. “We, as Egyptians, are religiously very moderate.” A much better model for Egypt, she said, is Turkey, where an Islamic party is presiding over an economic boom.

I asked about female circumcision, also called female genital mutilation, which is inflicted on the overwhelming majority of girls in Egypt. It is particularly common in conservative religious households and, to its credit, the Mubarak government made some effort to stop the practice. Many worry that a more democratic government won’t challenge a practice that has broad support. “The Muslim Brotherhood is against the brutal practice of female circumcision,” Sondos said bluntly. She insisted that women overall would benefit from Brotherhood policies that focus on the poor: “We believe that a solution of women’s problems in Egyptian society is to solve the real causes, which are illiteracy, poverty and lack of education.” I asked skeptically about alcohol, peace with Israel, and the veil. Sondos, who wears a hijab, insisted that the Brotherhood wasn’t considering any changes in these areas and that its priority is simply jobs. “Egyptians are now concerned about economic conditions,” she said. “They want to reform their economic system and to have

jobs. They want to eliminate corruption.” Noting that alcohol supports the tourism industry, she added: “I don’t think any upcoming government will focus on banning anything.” I told her that I would feel more reassured if some of my liberal Egyptian friends were not so wary of the Brotherhood. Some warn that the Brotherhood may be soothing today but that it has a violent and intolerant streak — and is utterly inexperienced in managing a modern economy. Sondos looked exasperated. “We embrace moderate Islam,” she said. “We are not the ultra-conservatives that people in the West envision.” I heard similar reassurances from other Brotherhood figures I interviewed, and I’m not sure what to think. But opinions vary, and I’m struck by the optimism I heard in some secular quarters: from Dr. Nawal El Saadawi, an 80-year-old leftist who is a hero of Egyptian feminism, and from Ahmed Zewail, the Egyptian-American scientist who won a Nobel Prize and is passionate about education. Amr Moussa, a former foreign minister and Arab League secretary gener-

al who is a front-runner in the race for president, was similarly optimistic. He told me that whatever unfolds, Egypt will continue to seek good relations with the U.S. and will unquestionably stand by its peace treaty with Israel. When I raised U.S. concerns that Egypt under the Muslim Brotherhood and the more extremist Salafis might replicate Iran, he was dismissive: “The experience of Iran will not be repeated in Egypt.” I think he’s right. Revolutions are often messy, and it took Americans seven years from their victory in the American Revolution at Yorktown to get a ratified Constitution. Indonesia, after its 1998 revolution, felt very much like Egypt does today. It endured upheavals from a fundamentalist Islamic current, yet it pulled through. So a bit of nervousness is fine, but let’s not overdo the hand-wringing — or lose perspective. What’s historic in Egypt today is not so much the rise of any one party as the apparent slow emergence of democracy in the heart of the Arab world. — Nicholas Kristof is a columnist for The New York Times.

Envisioning an oil-rich America T

here is a revolution going on in America. But it is not part of the tea party or the loud Occupy Wall Street protests. Instead, massive new reserves of gas, oil and coal are being discovered almost everywhere in the United States, due to revolutionary methods of exploration and exploitation such as fracking and horizontal drilling. Current prices of over $100 a barrel make even complex efforts at recovery enormously profitable. There were always known to be additional untapped reserves of oil and gas in the petroleum-rich Gulf of Mexico, off America’s shores, and in the American West and Alaska. But even the top energy experts never imagined just how vast was the energy there — or beneath far more unlikely places like South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York. Some studies suggest the United States has now expanded its known potential gas and oil reserves tenfold. The strategic and economic repercussions of these new finds are staggering, and remind us how a once energy-independent and thereby confident American economy soared to world dominance in the early 20th century. America will soon again be able to supply all of its own domestic natural gas needs — and perhaps for the next 90 years at present rates of

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON consumption. We have recently become a net exporter of refined gas and diesel fuel, and already have cut imported oil from OPEC countries by 1 million barrels per day. With expanded exploration and conservation, the United States could also eventually supply half its own petroleum needs. If we were to eliminate just 5 million barrels of our current daily 9 million barrels of imported petroleum, the annual savings could reach nearly $200 billion per year. Eventually, the new gas and oil could add another 1.6 million new jobs and add up to nearly $1 trillion in federal revenue. That windfall would cut out about a third of our present annual trade deficit — well apart from additional income earned by new natural gas exportation. “Investments,” “shovelready jobs” and “stimulus” would finally become more than empty sloganeering. But America’s new oil discoveries are not occurring in a vacuum. The entire Western Hemisphere is enjoying a fossil fuel boom, from northern Canada to Brazil and Argentina. America’s backyard will soon be comparable to the oil-rich

Persian Gulf, keeping more American money — and troops — at home. Illegal immigration should taper off as well, as oil-rich Latin American economies reap huge cash bonanzas. Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela will soon be simply one of many regional exporters. Current crises in American foreign policy — Iran’s efforts to obtain the bomb, the protection of an embattled Israel, stopping the funding of radical Islamists — might be freed from the worries of perennial OPEC threats of cutoffs and price spikes. Federal subsidies for inefficient corn-based ethanol production in the Midwest also could cease. That would save the Treasury billions of dollars and allow millions of American acres to return to food production to supply an increasingly hungry world. The Obama administration’s efforts to subsidize “green” energy so far have proved both uneconomical and occasionally corrupt — as we have seen in the Solyndra affair. Yet more gas and oil can offer America critical breathing space until better technology makes wind, solar and electric power more price-competitive — without massive federal subsidies and a marked reduction in our standard of living. Of course, there are sizable interests opposed to the new American gas and oil finds — not all of them

foreign governments, but instead reflected in the current Obama administration policy of halting new pipelines, placing moratoriums on offshore drilling, and putting lucrative federal lands off-limits. Yet if the United States does not produce much of the fuel that it uses, will the oil-exporting Gulf sheikdoms, Nigeria or Iran better protect the world’s environment than American-based oil companies? Would our oil dollars or theirs be less likely to fuel terrorism, illegal arms sales and rogue regimes? For the American poor and unemployed, how liberal is it, really, to keep energy prices high while stalling millions of high-paying privatesector jobs that would both lower government costs in entitlements and empower the working classes? In the current presidential campaign, three issues dominate: national security, fiscal solvency and high unemployment. Development of America’s vast new gas and oil finds addresses all three at once. The idea of vastly expanding American gas and oil production in the 21st century is almost as unbelievable as the present administration’s apparent reluctance to capitalize on its windfall. — Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and historian at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and the author of the just-released “The End of Sparta.”

The reason I’m leaving the military By Paul Yingling

The Washington Post

I

’m a colonel in the U.S. Army, and next summer I will retire to teach high school social studies. My friends think I’m crazy, and they may have a point. Colonel is the last rank before general’s stars, and it comes with significant perks. My pay is triple the national average teacher’s salary. Military budgets have doubled over the past decade, while school districts have slashed funding, increased class sizes, cut programs and laid off teachers. The social status accorded to the military is wonderful, while teachers are routinely pilloried by politicians and pundits for student outcomes that are often driven by events and conditions far beyond the schoolhouse door. My friends express these concerns reluctantly; they may hold teaching in low regard but don’t want to be seen as holding it in low regard. More important, they remind me, I’m not just any soldier. Casting aside false modesty (the only kind we colonels know), I admit that my military career has followed an unusual path. Over the past decade, I’ve written articles and given speeches on the failure of senior officers to adapt to the challenges of irregular warfare. I’ve advocated reforming the military’s seniority-based personnel system to reward moral courage and intellectual rigor. My best-known article, “A Failure in Generalship,” appeared in 2007 and caused the Army to rethink the way it educates its generals. My work on warfare and leadership has been cited by

political leaders and included in the curricula of military academies and war colleges. My friends and colleagues assumed that I had a bright future in the Army, or else a lucrative new career as a defense contractor or consultant. They expected that I would do something more with the second half of my professional life. Not just different, but more. So why teach? For me, the answer lies in two moments. The first has occurred a half-dozen times over the past five years in conversations with four-star generals and politicians. Behind closed doors in Washington, D.C., there is widespread recognition that while our troops are remarkable, the great majority of our generals are not. In private meetings with senior leaders, I explain how parochialism, ambition and greed have corrupted our national security apparatus. Bad advice and bad decisions are not accidents but the results of a system that rewards bad behavior. When I finish, I see a glimmer of recognition in their faces, a sense that the problems I’ve described are real but not intractable. But soon the glimmer fades, and the eyes shift downward, as if to calculate the odds and costs of reforming an entrenched bureaucracy. The second moment is the polar opposite. Unbeknownst to all but my closest friends, my great passion is not military reform but youth baseball. I’ve coached since my 18-yearold son was old enough to hold a bat, and at all ages from preschool to high school. Every spring, I tell each kid to have fun, hustle every play, get better every day and be a good teammate.

Thinkstock

Every season, there is at least one kid who just doesn’t get it, who is embarrassed about not getting it, who leaves practice on the verge of tears, determined never to pick up a baseball again. Every season, I work with that kid one on one, before and after practice, on Sunday afternoons, any time when other kids aren’t looking. After about the third practice, I see in that kid a glimmer of recognition, a sense that he or she is getting it. There is no calculation of odds or costs, only a sense of expanding possibilities. The glimmer grows each day: If I can hit a ball, what else can I do? It spreads: If one of us can get better, why can’t we all? This moment becomes a series of moments, experienced individually and as part of a larger whole. Spring turns into summer, and this series of moments becomes a set of habits. These habits, a passion for excellence, a willingness to

work, a commitment to others, are more about character than baseball. Shaped carefully, they cement the foundation of a young person’s character. Weighing these two moments, and alternative futures filled with many more like them, my new career choice became as obvious to me as it was perplexing to my friends. I will leave the Army two years too early to retire with the benefits of a full colonel, but just in time to start teaching next fall. Though I lack an education degree or experience as a student teacher, the Troops to Teachers program helped me complete the requirements for certification as a non-traditional teacher, an apt description of me if ever there was one. Another high school teacher, Aristotle, believed that people form communities not just to preserve life but to pursue the good life. The iconic, life-preserving figures of the post-9/11 era, soldiers, police officers, firefighters, certainly deserve the adulation they receive. But security is merely instrumental; peace and freedom make a good life possible but not inevitable. Especially in a democracy, we ought to respect most those who foster the character traits that make self-government attainable: parents and teachers, coaches and ministers, poets and protesters. When I hear the Army motto, “This We’ll Defend,” it’s them I have in mind. — Paul Yingling is a colonel in the U.S. Army and a professor of security studies at the George C.

Obama’s regulations not tanking the economy

R

epublicans have many strong arguments to make against the Obama administration, but one major criticism doesn’t square with the evidence. This is the charge that President Barack Obama is running a virulently antibusiness administration that spews out a steady flow of job- and economy-crushing regulations. In the first place, Obama has certainly not shut corporate-types out of the regulatory process. According to data collected by the Center for Progressive Reforms, 62 percent of the people who met with the White House office in charge of reviewing regulations were representatives of industry, while only 16 percent represented activist groups. Nor is it true that the administration is blindly doing the bidding of the liberal activist groups. On the contrary, the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and its administrator, Cass Sunstein, have been the subject of withering attacks from the left. The organization Think Progress says the office is “appalling.” The Huffington Post published a long article studded with

DAVID BROOKS negative comments from unions and environmental activists. If you step back and try to get some non-hysterical perspective, you come to the following conclusion: This is a Democratic administration. Many of the major agency jobs are held by people who come out of the activist community who are not sensitive to the costs they are imposing on the economy. Obama has a political and philosophical incentive to restrain their enthusiasm. He has, therefore, supported a review agency in the White House that does cost-benefit analyses to review proposed regulations and minimize economic harm. This office is composed of career number-crunchers of no known ideological bent who try to measure the trade-offs inherent in regulatory action. Deciding among these tradeoffs involves relying on both values and data. This office has tried to elevate the role of data.

Overall, the Obama administration has significantly increased the regulatory costs imposed on the economy. But this is a difference of degree, not of kind. During the final year of their administration, presidents generally issue tons of new rules. 1988, under Ronald Reagan; 1992, under George H.W. Bush; and 2008, under George W. Bush, were monster years for new regulations. In his first years, Obama has not increased regulatory costs more than Reagan and the Bushes did in their final years. Data collected by Bloomberg News suggest that the Obama White House has actually reviewed 5 percent fewer rules than George W. Bush’s did at a similar point in his presidency. What has increased is the cost of those rules. George W. Bush issued regulations over eight years that cost about $60 billion. During its first two years, the Obama regulations cost between $8 billion and $16.5 billion, according to estimates by the administration itself, and $40 billion according to data collected, more broadly, by the Heritage Foundation.

That’s a significant step up, as you’d expect when comparing Republican to Democratic administrations, but it is not a socialist onslaught. Nor is it clear that these additional regulations have had a huge effect on the economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics asks companies why they have laid off workers. Only 13 percent said regulations were a major factor. That number has not increased in the past few years. Some of the industries that are the subject of the new rules, like energy and health care, have actually been doing the most hiring. There are two large lessons here. First, Republican candidates can say they will deregulate, but it will not produce a short-term economic rebound because regulations are not a big factor in our short-term problems. Second, it is easy to be cynical about politics, but, in reality, most people in government are trying to find a balance between difficult trade-offs. Obama’s regulations may be more intrusive than some of us would like. They are not tanking the economy. — David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times.

Egypt: The beginning or the end?

T

he fact that the Muslim Brotherhood and the even more fundamentalist Salafist Nour Party have garnered some 65 percent of the votes in the first round of Egypt’s free parliamentary elections since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak should hardly come as a surprise. Given the way that the military regimes in the Arab world decimated all independent secular political parties over the last 50 years, there is little chance of any Arab country going from Mubarak to Jefferson without going through some Khomeini. But whether this is the end of the Egyptian democracy rebellion, just a phase in it or an inevitable religious political expression that will have to coexist with the military and secular reform agendas remains to be seen. The laws of gravity, both political and economic, have yet to assert themselves on whoever will lead Egypt, which is why today I am in a listening and watching mode, with more questions than answers. Question One: Have the more secular reform parties, who led the Tahrir Square revolutions earlier this year and last month, learned from their mistakes? The more secular, prodemocracy reformist demonstrators, who revived the Tahrir protests last month, deserve credit for getting the Egyptian Army to limit its power grab. But that seems to have come at the expense of alienating some more traditional-minded Egyptian voters — who still cling to the army as a source of stability — and it seems to have hampered the secular reformists in preparing to compete in the first round of elections. The liberal Egyptian Bloc came in third with about 15 percent of the votes. Egypt’s secular reformers need to get more organized and unified. Question Two: Do the Egyptian Islamist parties, who could dominate a future cabinet, have any idea of how to generate economic growth at a time when the Egyptian economy is sinking? Egypt today is burning through about $1 billion in foreign currency reserves a month and is now down to $21 billion. The Egyptian pound has crumbled to a sevenyear low. Youth unemployment is 25 percent. Egypt’s main foreign currency earner is tourism, and hotel occupancy is way down. But the main focus of the Salafists is not boosting the economy. It’s segregating the sexes, banning alcohol and ensuring that women are veiled. The Muslim Brotherhood has been less doctrinaire but is a long way from liberal. How will they be able to advance their fundamentalist religious/social mores when this could drive away Egypt’s biggest source of income, not to mention foreign direct investment, not to mention foreign assistance from the European Union and the U.S.? Egypt’s only hope for growth is still free-market capitalism — spawning companies and workers who can compete on the global market. Therefore, whoever inherits power in Egypt will have to deliver a less corrupt form of capitalism, with more competition, more privatization and fewer government jobs, at a time when the Egyptian economy is sinking. Question Three: Will Egypt follow the pattern of Iraq? Religious and sectarian parties in Iraq also swept its first elections, and, after they performed badly, the Iraqi public swung away from them toward more secular, pluralistic parties. Arab voters want a clean government that creates jobs and provides stability. Iraq also demonstrates that once fighting stops, and politics starts, all kinds of square dancing begins between secular and religious parties. The Muslim Brotherhood and Salafists are arch enemies, so who knows what coalitions will emerge. Bottom Line: The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafis have been living underground, focused largely on what they were both against and confined in their ideology to platitudes like “Islam is the answer.” Now that they are emerging from the Arab basement to the Arab street, they not only have to define what they are for but do it in the context of a highly competitive global economy that will leave Egypt’s 85 million people, about one-third of whom are illiterate, even further behind if they don’t get moving. — Thomas Friedman is a columnist for The New York Times.

“Commander in Chic” by Mikki Taylor (Atria Books, 192 pgs., $26.99) By Simone S. Oliver

New York Times News Service

To most people, there is only one “O” as far as icons from Chicago are concerned. But when Mikki Taylor, the former beauty editor at Essence, speaks of “O,” there is no doubt whom she is talking about. “Mrs. O. doesn’t fall for every little trend,” Taylor said. “And she leads her life the same way.” As a magazine editor, Taylor spent the last 30 years helping to set the bar for black beauty and fashion. Now she has trained her eye on Michelle Obama, arguably the most style-conscious first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy (later to be another famous “O”), in her new book, “Commander in Chic” (Atria Books). Subtitled, “Every woman’s guide to managing her style like a first lady,” the book is not so much a how-to guide as it is an inspirational look book filled with perky little prescriptions that Taylor calls “Mikki-isms.” A typical pointer: “Your hair should be so fly that it looks as though you have a pro on speed dial.” Taylor comes across the same way in person, chipper and full of life. She’s like the cool aunt whose style gene and closet you pray is passed down.

Lee Clower / New York Times News Service

Mikki Taylor, a fashion editor, stylist and author, looks for inspiration in the Jason Wu boutique at Bergdorf Goodman on Nov. 4 in New York. Taylor’s new book, “Commander in Chic,” is a guide to managing style the way first lady Michelle Obama does.

Having style is not about spending a lot of money and endless shopping, she said on a recent Thursday. “It’s about establishing your dress code. True style is not something you put on.” Taylor, who was having lunch at Bar Americain in New York, wore a knee-length maroon-and-peach lace frock from Plenty by Tracy Reese, which she accessorized with a gold cuff. Her hair was slicked

back, as she has worn it for 20 years. To her, being fashionable is not about chasing the latest trend, but figuring out one’s personal style and releasing it. That, Taylor added, is part of what makes the first lady’s style so appealing. “Mrs. Obama makes her look work for her no matter what’s in or out,” she said. Taylor first met the entire Obama family when the

president was a senator. She styled them in their Chicago home for the photograph that became the September 2008 cover of Essence. Not paying any attention to designer tags, Taylor put Michelle Obama in a simple sleeveless deep-purple sheath dress from Michelle Obama’s personal wardrobe. Purple, she thought, complemented Michelle Obama’s skin tone and is the color of

Fewer than 85 Medal of Honor heroes survived at the time of publishing, but this update helps ensure that their inspiring stories are available to new generations. “Lost Worlds: Ruins of the Americas” (Antique Collectors Club, $49.95): Having chronicled “American Ruins” in 2007, Arthur Drooker returns with a photographic exploration of mystery-filled ancient sites in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

ATLANTA — A tough economy has had a way of turning even seasoned globetrotters into armchair travelers. Fortunately, the new crop of coffee-table books for holiday gift giving offers many titles for those with a taste for the exotic. Plus, we detail a few books that explore other topics in depth. “The World’s Must-See Places” (DK Publishing, $25) is a tour of more than 100 essential sites, from the renowned Sydney Opera House and the Great Pyramid at Giza to lesser-known destinations such as the Great Mosque of Kairouan in Tunisia or the mountaintop fortress of Masada in Israel. DK’s signature 3-D cutaway illustrations reveal highlights of each structure’s interior, and photo spreads and detail shots help put you there. “Secret Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World’s Best Hidden Travel Gems” (National Geographic, $40) explores some less traveled corners, including the Pang Mapha Coffin Caves in northern Thailand. In these serpentine caves where an ancient unidentified people deposited their dead in ornately sculpted coffins carved from giant teak logs, you can climb and belly crawl into “dark, dusty caverns littered in rotting wood, human teeth and bones.” At least no one will nod off during your vacation slide show. “The New 1,000 Places to See Before You Die” (Workman, $19.95) is in truth more of a guidebook than a coffee-table tome, an updated softcover volume that includes 200 new destinations and covers 28 new countries. It guides readers to a sunrise balloon safari over Masai Mara in Kenya, a round on the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland, and a tour of the moody moonscapes and stone castles of coastal County Clare, Ireland. The 600 color photographs are small, leaving more room for info on places to stay and shop and the best times to go. Because you are going before you die, right? “Pilgrimage” (Random House, $50): Annie Leibovitz

is one of the most celebrated celebrity portraitists of our time, but this project shows her interests in matters a little less fleeting, mainly historic places linked to genius or greatness. She began this series by shooting Emily Dickinson’s house, then Niagara Falls. And then, realizing she was maybe onto something, she started making out the equivalent of a bucket list of subjects she longed to shoot, such as Julia Margaret Cameron’s Isle of Wight, and the trails above Ansel Adams’ Yosemite Valley. From Elvis to Annie Oakley, her passions are eccentric, but her eye for detail is sharp, capturing everything from the pattern of the cane bed frame upon which Thoreau slept in his Walden Pond cabin to the sulfuric fury of an Old Faithful eruption. “Ocean Soul” (National Geographic, $31.50): As a contract photojournalist for National Geographic since 1998 covering marine wildlife and underwater environments, Brian Skerry has frequently journeyed to the Earth’s far reaches. And even there, he’s found the damaging footprint of industrialized man. Skerry shoots and writes with the eye of an environmentalist, and “Ocean Soul” makes you care about the protect-our-oceans cause. In the central Pacific — “where islands and atolls dot the sea like jewels tossed upon a blanket of blue velvet,” Skerry evocatively writes — he shares a positive discovery.

The family was photographed seated at the bottom of the stairs. “That cover is the cover that I’m most proud of in my career,” she said. “It’s the Obama family, it’s prior to the election and it’s one of the shots that was seen around the world.” But what many may not know about Taylor is that her knack for taste lies in her roots. Born in Newark, N.J., she was heavily influenced by her mother, Modina Davis Watson, a makeup artist and wardrobe stylist to the jazz singer Sarah Vaughan. Her mother’s circle included Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald and Quincy Jones. During the 1950s and early 1960s, her mother traveled by ocean liner to Europe and often returned with dolls and makeup. “I’m still playing with my dolls, in a way,” said Taylor, who refused to give her age. When she is not working, she enjoys cooking for her husband, a retired educator; her three adult children and the family dog at the family’s home in New Jersey. She is also diligent about staying fit, just like the first lady. The book devotes an entire chapter to exercise and health, filled with photos of Michelle Obama jogging, tending to the White House garden and, of course, Mikki-ism like “Don’t kid yourself: when it comes to mastering good health, it helps to be a little vain.”

‘Van Gogh’: Portrait James drops Dalgliesh of a complex man for Austen’s England “Van Gogh: The Life” by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith (Random House, 976 pgs., $40) By Peter M. Gianotti Newsday (MCT)

Vincent van Gogh’s autobiography is painted in luminous, powerful brushstrokes, the supreme portrait of the artist. “As my work is,” he said, “so am I.” “Van Gogh: The Life,” the intricate and panoramic biography by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith, is a provocative work about the volcanic man and his art. Van Gogh’s story has been romanticized and mythologized, especially in fiction and on film. For decades, his image has been fashioned as much from Irving Stone’s popular novel, “Lust for Life,” and the Oscarwinning 1956 movie starring Kirk Douglas, as it has been from scholars and historians. As much as any artist, he’s now part of popular culture. He’s everywhere, from posters and address books to song and music, television to Legos, Christmas ornaments to puppets — including at least one with a detachable ear. There are times when his “Still Life: Vase With Fifteen Sunflowers” seems reproduced almost as often as the face of a certain woman with an enigmatic smile. Naifeh and Smith treat “the life” with remarkable detail and, despite its imposing length, a very accessible narrative. In that way, it’s similar to their “Jackson Pollock: An American Saga,” for which they earned a Pulitzer Prize. This is an insightful and important work, unquestionably the essential biography for years to come. There are flaws, of course. Too often, Naifeh and Smith make it seem that great art flowed from the emotion of the moment, going directly from the artist’s immediate state of

mind to the canvas. And the book doesn’t fully address van Gogh’s mental condition and spiral into depression. But, subtly, it does underscore the connection between life and art in a “slow-igniting, fast-burning career.” What matters most is that their van Gogh is alive with the brilliance of cadmium yellow and cobalt blue. The authors describe his terrible childhood, innumerable failures and humiliations, and the deep loneliness and despair of “such a tormented soul.” Their picture, however, isn’t all sympathy. It’s fuller, also unveiling an abrasive, estranged, manipulative, obsessive, often delusional man. “Van Gogh: The Life” has gained some notoriety for questioning whether the artist shot himself. Naifeh and Smith speculate that he was killed by a teenager whose ways make him seem a character out of Caravaggio. “All that can be said with certainty is that he died of a gunshot wound,” they write. “No physical evidence of the shooting was ever produced.” The mythology, however, is that his “Wheat Field With Crows” amounted to a suicide note. Naifeh and Smith offer a “hypothetical reconstruction” based in part on interviews given by the possible killer, full of “faltering denials” and “boisterous confessions.” While tantalizing, it’s not entirely convincing. The tragedy and the mystery are partners. What is sure is that van Gogh’s grave is in Auvers, next to his beloved brother Theo’s. The simple, spare stone has his name and years of birth and death. Above are the words, “Ici Repose” — here rests. After reading the tumultuous “Van Gogh: The Life,” you’ll think it’s the only time he ever did.

The game is afoot in ‘The House of Silk’ “The House of Silk” by Anthony Horowitz (Mulholland Books, 304 pgs., $27.99) By Rhonda Dickey

The Philadelphia Inquirer

Sherlock Holmes will never die — no generation of writers would let him. Someone will always lovingly gather the classic pieces — Dr. John Watson, the Baker Street Irregulars, Holmes’ smarter brother Mycroft, even the cocaine use — and reassemble them. Generally, whether it’s a novel, a movie or a TV series, it’s either a homage to the much-loved stories, or a reimagining that takes the familiar elements into new and often darker places. Michael Dibdin’s “The Last Sherlock Holmes Story,” which added Jack the Ripper to the mix, might be the most extreme case of a reimagining. “The House of Silk” reads for most of its length like a homage. It’s enormously involving and entertaining, and even funny in parts: Kindly Watson describes Scotland Yard’s hapless Inspector Lestrade as having “the general demeanour of a rat who has been obliged to dress up for lunch at the Savoy.” But for large chunks of the novel, set in 1890, the reader wonders what the purpose of the new adventure is. It works just fine as a spirited Holmesian thriller, but could use more literary ambition. By the end, though, the novel shows itself to be something more. So

enjoy the ride, and be assured it’s going somewhere. “The House of Silk” is presented as a Holmes story too disturbing for Watson to publish in his lifetime. Aging, and suffering from an old war wound, as a new “terrible and senseless war rages on the Continent,” Watson plans to instruct that the tale be embargoed for 100 years. “It is impossible to imagine what the world will be like then … but perhaps future readers will be more inured to scandal and corruption than my own would have been.” A big challenge for Horowitz is juggling two separate inquiries with bewildering links to each other. The first one begins when Edmund Carstairs, a fine-art dealer from Wimbledon who feels menaced by a man in a flat cap who he believes has followed him from America, engages Holmes to investigate. Carstairs had been the accidental victim of a train robbery in Massachusetts that led in the ensuing weeks to half a dozen killings. The second inquiry begins when young Ross, one of the Baker Street Irregulars, is found beaten to death, his throat cut and a white silk ribbon knotted around his wrist. Holmes and Watson learn that the House of Silk “is a criminal enterprise that operates on a massive scale and ... has friends in the very highest places.” It’s also, as Holmes tells Carstairs at the end, “a crime more unpleasant than any I had ever encountered.”

“Death Comes to Pemberly” by P.D. James (Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 304 pgs., $25.95) By Hephzibah Anderson Bloomberg News

LONDON — Jane Austen famously refused to acknowledge the Napoleonic Wars in her books. The detective novelist P.D. James rectifies that in the first chapter of “Death Comes to Pemberley,” her followup to “Pride and Prejudice.” She even throws in a corpse. “Pemberley” is an intensely satisfying mystery that begins six years after Austen’s classic ends. The home of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy is abuzz with preparations for a ball. So far, so Austen. Then comes the discovery of a dead body in the woods nearby. As a paid-up member of the Jane Austen Society, the 91-year-old James had long pondered the idea of combining her two great enthusiasms: reading Austen and writing detective fiction. Unsure of whether her creative energy would hold out for a 15th book featuring Commander Adam Dalgliesh, her poetry-writing sleuth, she decided to give this shorter project a try. “It was fascinating to address what I saw as not defects in the plotting — that would be quite the wrong word to use — but problems, mysteries,” James says over a pot of tea in the living room of her London home. Though she has tinkered with some of the details, James channels Austen’s voice with brio. “I wanted to be an echo of hers,” she says. “Pride and Prejudice” is not James’s favorite Austen novel — that would be “Emma” — yet it was the first she read, finding it on the Sunday school bookshelf when she was 9. She loved it immediately. Years later, sheltering from the Blitz in a London cellar while heavily pregnant with her first child, she reached for it again. “The noise above was tremendous because of the anti-aircraft guns trying to shoot down these wretched flying bombs, interspersed, of course, with the noise as they landed. It was such comfort reading Austen.” She named her daughter Jane. A tiny woman in a turquoise cardigan with a silk

Mystery writer P.D. James has written a follow-up to Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.”

ruffle, her faced framed by a snowy bob, James sinks back into the sofa and rests her hands on her head to think, leaning forward when a topic seizes her. As dusk gathers outside, these topics range from Hillary Clinton (she would have been a better bet than Obama, James believes) to the Occupy movement’s London offshoot (she doesn’t have much sympathy for the protesters). She even has views on how much sex the dreary Mr. Collins, who marries Elizabeth Bennet’s best friend, might demand of his wife (lots). Though animated by exactly the kind of shrewdness you’d imagine a writer of detective fiction to possess, she also radiates an unhesitating warmth, calling a visiting reporter “dear” and laughing often. Yet even in this grand room, with its William Morris upholstery and antique portraits, a darkness dapples her conversation. It’s there when she speaks of her belief in evil, and of her ebbing faith in society’s ability to address current economic problems. In the very long term, she believes humankind will go the way of the dinosaurs. For all that, detective fic-

tion, she says, is an inherently optimistic genre, affirming belief in a rational, comprehensible and manageable universe, and she isn’t quite ready to confirm Dalgliesh’s retirement. Meanwhile, aging, though it curtails the immense independence she has known — an independence Austen herself would have envied — has its blessings. “When young, it seemed to me I was racing through life. One knew that the tulip was beautiful, but there wasn’t the sense of its beauty entering into one and giving one particular joy. I think also in one’s personal relationships — the ones that last — there is that feeling of something permanent and something good.”

China Continued from F1 But the strongest condemnation has come from nonproliferation experts who worry that the study could fuel arguments for maintaining nuclear weapons in an era when efforts are being made to reduce the world’s post-Cold War stockpiles. Beyond its impact in the policy world, the project has made a profound mark on the students — including some who have since graduated and taken research jobs with the Defense Department and Congress. “I don’t even want to know how many hours I spent on it,” said Nick Yarosh, 22, an international politics senior at Georgetown. “But you ask people what they did in college, most just say I took this class, I was in this club. I can say I spent it reading Chinese nuclear strategy and Second Artillery manuals. For a nerd like me, that really means something.”

Elite research team The students’ professor, Phillip Karber, 65, had spent the Cold War as a top strategist reporting directly to the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. But it was his early work in defense that cemented his reputation, when he led an elite research team created by Henry Kissinger, who was then the national security adviser, to probe the weaknesses of Soviet forces. Karber prided himself on recruiting the best intelligence analysts in the government. “You didn’t just want the highest-ranking or brightest guys, you wanted the ones who were hungry,” he said. In 2008, Karber was volunteering on a committee for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, a Pentagon agency charged with countering weapons of mass destruction. After a devastating earthquake struck Sichuan province, the chairman of Karber’s committee noticed Chinese news accounts reporting that thousands of radiation technicians were rushing to the region. Then came pictures of

strangely collapsed hills and speculation that the caved-in tunnels in the area had held nuclear weapons. Find out what’s going on, the chairman asked Karber, who began looking for analysts again — this time among his students at Georgetown. The first inductees came from his arms-control classes. Each semester, he set aside a day to show them tantalizing videos and documents he had begun gathering on the tunnels. Then he concluded with a simple question: What do you think it means? “The fact that there were no answers to that really got to me,” said former student Dustin Walker, 22. “It started out like any other class, tests on this day or that, but people kept coming back, even after graduation. … We spent hours on our own outside of class on this stuff.” The students worked in their dorms translating military texts. They skipped movie nights for marathon sessions reviewing TV clips of missiles being moved from one tunnel structure to another. While their friends read Shakespeare, they gathered in the library to war-game worst-case scenarios of a Chinese nuclear strike on the United States. Over time, the team grew from a handful of contributors to roughly two dozen. Most spent their time studying the subterranean activities of the Second Artillery Corps.

Compiling data While the tunnels’ existence was something of an open secret among the handful of experts studying China’s nuclear arms, almost no papers or public reports on the structures existed. So the students turned to publicly available Chinese sources — military journals, local news reports and online photos posted by Chinese citizens. It helped that China’s famously secretive military was beginning to release more information, driven by its leaders’ eagerness to show off China’s growing power to its citizens. The Internet also generated a raft of leads: new military forums, blogs and once-obscure

local TV reports now posted on the Chinese equivalents of YouTube. Strategic string searches even allowed the students to get behind some military Web sites and download documents such as syllabuses taught at China’s military academies. The main problem was the sheer amount of translation required. Each semester, Karber managed to recruit only one or two Chinese-speaking students. So the team assembled a makeshift system to scan images of the books and documents they found. Using text-capture software, they converted those pictures into Chinese characters, which were fed into translation software to produce crude English versions. From those, they highlighted key passages for finer translation by the Chinese speakers. The downside was the drudgery — hours feeding pages into the scanner. The upside was that after three years, the students had compiled a searchable database of more than 1.4 million words on the Second Artillery and its tunnels. By combining everything they found in the journals, video clips, satellite imagery and photos, they were able to triangulate the location of several tunnel structures, with a rough idea of what types of missiles were stored in each. Their work also yielded smaller revelations: how the missiles were kept mobile and transported from structure to structure, as well as tantalizing images and accounts of a “missile train” and disguised passenger rail cars to move China’s long-range missiles. To facilitate the work, Karber set up research rooms for the students at his home in Great Falls, Va. He bought Apple computers and large flatscreen monitors for their video work and obtained small research grants for those who wanted to work through the summer. When work ran late, many crashed in his basement’s spare room. “I got fat working on this thing because I didn’t go to the gym anymore. It was that intense,” said Yarosh, who has

continued on the project this year not for credit but purely as a hobby. “It’s not the typical college course. Dr. Karber just tells you the objective and gives you total freedom to figure out how to get there. That level of trust can be liberating.” Some of the biggest breakthroughs came after members of Karber’s team used personal connections in China to obtain a 400-page manual produced by the Second Artillery and usually available only to China’s military personnel.

TV melodrama Another source of insight was a pair of semi-fictionalized TV series chronicling the lives of Second Artillery soldiers. The plots were often overwrought with melodrama — one series centers on a brigade commander who struggles to whip his slipshod unit into shape while juggling relationship problems with his glamorous Olympic-swimcoach girlfriend. But they also included surprisingly accurate depictions of artillery units’ procedures that lined up perfectly with the military manual and other documents. “Until someone showed us on screen how exactly these missile deployments were done from the tunnels, we only had disparate pieces. The TV shows gave us the big picture of how it all worked together,” Karber said. In December 2009, just as the students began making progress, the Chinese military admitted for the first time that the Second Artillery had indeed been building a network of tunnels. According to a report by state-run CCTV, China had more than 3,000 miles of tunnels — roughly the distance between Boston and San Francisco — including deep underground bases that could withstand multiple nuclear attacks. The news shocked Karber and his team. It confirmed the direction of their research, but it also highlighted how little attention the tunnels were garnering outside East Asia. The lack of interest, particularly in the U.S. media, demonstrated China’s unique

position in the world of nuclear arms. For decades, the focus has been on the two powers with the largest nuclear stockpiles by far — the United States, with 5,000 warheads available for deployment, and Russia, which has 8,000. But of the five nuclear weapons states recognized by the Non-Proliferation Treaty, China has been the most secretive. While the United States and Russia are bound by bilateral treaties that require on-site inspections, disclosure of forces and bans on certain missiles, China is not. The assumption for years has been that the Chinese arsenal is relatively small — anywhere from 80 to 400 warheads. China has encouraged that perception. As the only one of the five original nuclear states with a no-first-use policy, it insists that it keeps a small stockpile only for “minimum deterrence.” Given China’s lack of transparency, Karber argues, all the experts have to work with are assumptions, which can often be dead wrong. As an example, Karber often recounts to his students his experience of going to Russia with former defense secretary Frank Carlucci to discuss U.S. help in securing the Russian nuclear arsenal. The United States had offered Russia about 20,000 canisters designed to safeguard warheads — a number based on U.S. estimates at the time. The generals told Karber they needed 40,000. At the end of the tunnel study, Karber cautions that the same could happen with China. Based on the number of tunnels the Second Artillery is digging and its increasing deployment of missiles, he argues, China’s nuclear warheads could number as many as 3,000.

Criticism It is an assertion that has provoked heated responses from the arms-control community. Gregory Kulacki, a China nuclear analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists, pub-

licly condemned Karber’s report at a recent lecture in Washington. In an interview afterward, he called the 3,000 figure “ridiculous” and said the study’s methodology — especially its inclusion of posts from Chinese bloggers — was “incompetent and lazy.” “The fact that they’re building tunnels could actually reinforce the exact opposite point,” he argued. “With more tunnels and a better chance of survivability, they may think they don’t need as many warheads to strike back.” Reaction from others has been more moderate. “Their research has value, but it also shows the danger of the Internet,” said Hans Kristensen of the Federation of American Scientists. Kristensen faulted some of the students’ interpretation of the satellite images. “One thing his report accomplishes, I think, is it highlights the uncertainty about what China has,” said Mark Stokes, executive director of the Project 2049 Institute, a think tank. “There’s no question China’s been investing in tunnels, and to look at those efforts and pose this question is worthwhile.” This year, the Defense Department’s annual report on China’s military highlighted for the first time the Second Artillery’s work on new tunnels, partly a result of Karber’s report, according to some Pentagon officials. And in the spring, shortly before a visit to China, some in the office of then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates were briefed on the study. “I think it’s fair to say senior officials here have keyed upon the importance of this work,” said one Pentagon officer who was not authorized to speak on the record. For Karber, provoking such debate means that he and his small army of undergrads have succeeded. “I don’t have the slightest idea how many nuclear weapons China really has, but neither does anyone else in the arms-control community,” he said. “That’s the problem with China — no one really knows except them.”

With rude names, wine stops minding its manners By William Grimes

Pension funds and Wall Street banks are pouring money into futures markets for cotton and other commodities, which is driving up cotton prices, and thus raising prices for apparel retailers and consumers alike.

Overstuffed cotton talk drives price volatility By Kevin G. Hall

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

WASHINGTON — Texas cotton grower Brad Heffington speaks Wall Street’s language of hedges, correlation charts and the like as easily as he discusses weevils and pesticides. Yet today his financial knowledge is of limited use. Heffington’s been sidelined from the cotton futures market, thanks to a surge of financial speculators into the market, which originally Heffington was designed to protect farmers like him against price shifts. “It’s something I watch but can’t use anymore,” Heffington said of the cotton futures market, where contracts for future delivery of 50,000 pounds of cotton are bought and sold. Today, pension funds and Wall Street banks are pouring money into futures markets for cotton, oil, natural gas, wheat, coffee and other commodities. Such financial speculation helped drive an overheated cotton market to record levels of $2.17 a pound March 7. Before peaking, cotton prices had risen by more than 140 percent in less than 18 months. Some analysts contend that this speculative money from investors who will never actually take delivery of cotton is distorting the futures market, driving up cotton prices, and thus raising prices for apparel retailers and consumers alike. The United States is the world’s top exporter of raw cotton, sending much of it to Asia for garment manufacturing. In a series of investigations this year, McClatchy Newspapers has reported how excessive financial speculation in commodities markets by companies with no intent of taking delivery of a product have punished consumers of gasoline and aviation fuel while doubling the price of coffee, all while there were no actual shortages in supplies. The latest McClatchy Newspapers probe finds that increased volatility in cotton prices has corresponded with the changing composition of the futures market, where speculators hold more contracts than do growers, producers, buyers and users of commodities. “What happens is the markets become unreliable and therefore unusable for them,” said Bart Chilton, a commissioner on the Commodity Futures Trade Commission, which regulates the futures markets, in discussing McClatchy Newspapers’ findings. “It’s the same thing with cotton, same in energy. If you look at the volatility in the markets, there are not many of them that have sort of been stable.” See Cotton / G3

hen stepping inside The Sound Garden, the reclining chairs and potted plants make it feel more like a living room than a recording studio. But this living room also comes equipped with a stage, recording gear and computers to stream performances live over the Internet, allowing people all over the world to watch their favorite band’s recording session from Bend. On Tuesday, The River Pigs, an Americana/pop/roots-rock band from Bend, played before 30 friends and family while recording a promotional DVD. Having an audience provided the energy of a live performance without the chaos of a bar scene. “We built this room to support musicians,” said Kim Schouw, owner of The Sound Garden. “It’s about the music. In Austin, (Texas,) they call a room like this a listening room.” Digital technology has remade

the music industry, and recording studios have had to adapt. The Sound Garden, one of a half dozen or more studios in the Bend area, offers traditional recording, mixing and mastering, but it’s also a performance venue and a broadcast studio. Because of the decline in CD sales, major recording labels aren’t providing artists with money to record demos or albums, said Lance Miller, recording technician for the University of Oregon’s School of Music and Dance. So artists either have to pay a studio or learn how to record their own music, which has a steep learning curve. Miller, who started his own studio 25 year ago, said it’s cheaper and easier than it used to be because of digital recording technology. “You need a computer, an interface, a selection of microphones, headphones, studio monitors and the software to start a studio in your bedroom,” he said.

They’re reinforcements for a growing army of rude, budget-priced wines that have shoved their way into wine stores and supermarkets in the past few years — most recently Happy B----, a Hudson Valley rose that made its debut last month. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, an agency of the Treasury Department, approves about 120,000 applications for wine labels every year. Most names are traditional, often genteel, especially at the lower price points. It’s natural for a chardonnay or cabernet priced below $15 or even $10 to buff the image a bit.

Secrecy surrounds Rock Hall of Fame selection process The Spinners, an American soal vocal group, were one of 15 nominees to be inducted into the hall of fame for 2012, which can be a boon for a musician’s career, though lobbying for votes can become intense.

Old rock ’n’ rollers don’t fade away. They just hope for a nod from Cleveland. Specifically, for a nod from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, where the stars who once filled our ears get another shot at immortality, or at least some big money. With the recording industry under financial attack from many sides, one of the few ways for old acts to pique new interest is to be inducted into the hall of fame. So, each fall, managers and record labels dive into a mosh pit of monster egos, clashing tastes and rival interests in the industry, all in the hope of placing their artists among the royalty of rock. Guns N’ Roses, the Beastie Boys, Donovan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Laura Nyro and the Faces have been announced as the 2012 inductees to Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 15 nominees for 2012 included The Cure, Donna Summer and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. For the inductees, the reward can be enormous. Weekly record sales for a performer or band leap 40 to 60 percent, on average, in the weeks after selection, says David Bakula, a senior vice president at

Nielsen SoundScan. While winning a Grammy often helps one album, a nod from Cleveland can lift an entire back catalog. These days, labels and artists need all the help they can get. The music business is worth half of what it was 10 years ago, and the decline doesn’t look as if it will slow anytime soon. Total revenue from shipments of CDs, DVDs and other music products in the United States was $6.85 billion in 2010, according to the Recording Industry Association of America; in 2000, that figure topped $14 billion. But the path to the hall of fame can be long and difficult. Controversy surrounds the selection process, which is shrouded in secrecy. What is known is that a nominating committee of about 30 music critics, entertainment lawyers and recording executives winnows the field each year to 15 artists. Then another committee, this one of about 500 people, including past winners, selects five inductees. Artists can qualify for a spot 25 years after their first recording, which means that performers from the 1980s now have a chance to rank up there with Elvis. (The winners will be inducted at a ceremony next April.) See Rock Hall / G5

‘Tis the season for the unusual • Seasonal shops make the most of increased holiday shopping traffic By Joyce Smith

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Andrew Lindsey, 4, of Overland Park, Kan., doesn’t just like pandas, his mom says. He’s obsessed. So when he spied some furry slippers at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park this week, he put on the full sales job, quickly slipping off a boot to try on a slipper — adult size, of course. Though Andrew failed to make a sale this time, his mom, Monica Lindsey — or perhaps Santa — might be back to the Pillow Pet Store soon. Seasonal stores such as this one bring in stock not normally seen year-round at a time when consumers are most in search of the unusual in gifts and decor. For the next few weeks, malls will offer such items as a small speaker that can be plugged into everything from cellphones to laptops for instant amplification, remotecontrol flying fish and sharks, blankets with dinosaur heads, nativity scenes made out of olive tree wood, glass hummingbirds and, of course for the New Year, calendars. Retailers like the temporary stores because they can take advantage of the high-dollar and high-traffic holiday season without having to pay overhead all year. It also allows them a chance to test their idea, and the market itself, before signing a longterm lease. One potential downside? The location is going to depend on mall vacancies. Seasons has set up in the Oak Park Mall for 20 years, for the last three in the highertraffic and more visible main drag of the mall. This year, with few spots available, the store was lucky to get a spot by Nordstrom. When it opened in October, it also sold some Halloween and Thanksgiving items. Now it’s all about Christmas, expanding on its website offerings with more collectibles, along with more ornaments, which are displayed on about 30 trees. “We even have a group of women who make the threehour drive from Des Moines. We have customers who have something from us from when they were little who are now bringing in their children,” said manager Michele Parrish. The Overland Park Golf Division, owner of St. Andrews Golf Course and Overland Park Golf Club, has opened Santa’s Golf Shop at Oak Park Mall. The shop sells clubs, bags, apparel, golf club covers and golf-themed gifts. “It’s a revenue stream during the offseason. When we are done, we will bring all the inventory back to the pro

shops at the two golf courses,” said Curt Nelson, general manager of the Overland Park Golf Division and a PGA master professional. About Home, a home furnishings, decor and gift store in the Great Mall of the Great Plains in Olathe, Kan., is so new it is still unloading boxes. But many items are already on display from home decor to jewelry — University of Kansas aprons, Kansas City Chiefs hot pads, “Little Cowgirl” picture frames, “lures of the past” playing cards, metal signs and more. Sugar Plums has put in a seasonal store in the Great Mall for four years. Holiday items are 50 percent off with other weekly specials (currently all snowmen are 60 percent off). Buy five ornaments and get the sixth one free — foxes, dogs with Santa hat and bone, cats with fiddles, policemen, doctors, graduates, Santa firemen and Santa in shorts on a treadmill, sparkly reindeer. There are penguin ornaments and stuffed penguins, and rows of angels. A life-size Santa with chaps and cowboy hats greets customers at the door. It also has all-occasion greeting cards at half-price. After Christmas, there will be discounts on Christmas items as well as new Easter merchandise before the store closes in early 2012. The Great Mall’s Sportibles Outlet sells overstocks from the four area Sportibles stores at half off, including apparel,

hats and novelties. In downtown Kansas City, the Town Pavilion does its season a bit differently by holding a holiday mart at 1111 Main St., which it has done for a decade. Participating vendors will sell candles, Silpada jewelry, Avon beauty products and baked goods. At Zona Rosa in Kansas City, seasonal stores include Pink Chandelier, a Parisian-

flea-market-inspired shop selling antique and vintage home decor, furniture and fashion. “It helps us get some different uses we don’t have. Empty spaces are activated for the holidays, and we’ve been successful in incubating some tenants and rolling them to full time,” said Rosemary Salerno, general manager of Zona Rosa. “They can dip their toes in and see what they think.”

Sound Continued from G1 Musicians buy equipment to record themselves and then decide they can make money by offering their engineering services to other artists, he said. As a result, Miller said he’s seen larger studios going out of business and more doit-yourself project studios popping up. Dave Turnbull, the owner and operator of Studio 7 DJ & Recording Services, said after 18 years of being in rock ’n’ roll bands, he decided in 1995 to take his equipment and start a studio in Bend called The Bayou. In 2002, Turnbull moved the studio to Tumalo and named it Studio 7 Recording. When Turnbull changed locations, he said, he also made the transition from analog to digital equipment. Turnbull said his production increased and the quality improved. “The age of digital changed it for everybody,” he said. “If you’re intelligent and have the programs, you can record something that is radio ready.” Turnbull said artists don’t

necessarily need recording studios anymore, but do-ityourself projects can take time and may not sound professional. “The reason (artists) would come to my studio is for the production quality and (my) input,” he said. After being at the top of his recording-school class, Rory Restani, owner of Oxiliary Recording Studio in Bend, said it

still took him five years to cultivate the skills that made his productions radio quality. “To be your own sound engineer and to record yourself is very cheap for the gear,” he said. “For the experience and the knowledge to do it well and be able to translate what you want it to sound like into reality is very difficult.” When people think of the word studio, Restani said, they

Cotton Continued from G1 Sifting through CFTC historical data, McClatchy Newspapers found that the total number of outstanding futures contracts grew by about 80 percent from 1990 to 2010. That’s big growth in a historically small market. Moreover, the number of contracts doubled between 2004 and 2010. This parallels the timeframe when institutional investors began to play seriously in commodity markets, aided by popular commodity indices developed by investment bank Goldman Sachs and the now-disgraced financial giant American International Group. For much of the past two decades, Wall Street banks and other big financial firms’ activities in the futures markets were hidden in the data. Prior to September 2009, they were listed as if they were a grower or buyer of cotton, since they were hedging private bets they’d made on cotton, just like growers and buyers who deal in the actual goods. It was hard to tell what portion of the overall market the speculators represented. That changed after the first week of September 2009, when the CFTC began providing data that separated out futures contracts held by swap dealers — financial players betting on cotton but not producing, processing, merchandising or using it. The agency also began reporting contracts held by money managers — big pension funds and the like that trade cotton contracts on behalf of pensioners or investors. For much of the prior 20 years, the data showed commercial players, presumably growers and buyers, accounted for roughly 70 percent to 75 percent of cotton trading. That’s in line with historical

trends for crude oil and other commodities, where speculators had until recent years accounted for only about a quarter of all futures contracts held. But on the very first week of the broader reporting, the data shows that financial speculators actually had 61 percent of all cotton contracts. Since then, the percentage has come down to the 50 percent range, but it’s still high by historical standards. That’s where farmer Heffington comes back into the story. He’s a savvy grower who used to augment income from farming in the Lubbock area with well-placed bets in the futures market. “You can’t afford to hedge your costs in the market like you used to. I don’t know what the answer is. This is a big problem,” he said. “In the last few years, that’s really become futile. ... It’s just not working ... right now for us.” The wild gyrations in the

price of cotton are also claiming other victims. Retailers such as Macy’s, Ralph Lauren and Levi Strauss & Co. all have said in recent earnings reports that they’re unable to pass along fully to consumers their rising cotton prices, and they have seen profits slip. “The pricing issue, because of cotton, is a unique issue to this timeframe,” Blake Jorgensen, Levi’s chief financial officer, said during an Oct. 11 earnings call with investment analysts. He warned that volatile cotton prices would continue to cloud earnings forecasts. Cotton futures prices have tumbled since the March peak, settling around $1 per pound in recent weeks, down about 55 percent. Both growers and buyers complain that it’s hard to run a business when cotton prices oscillate so wildly month to month, week to week, even within a day. “The volatility has been maybe the bigger concern — going

picture a multimillion dollar building constructed for perfect acoustics. But, that isn’t necessary for those who know how to use today’s technology, he said. Restani recalled that when he recorded local hip-hop artist, Jay Tablet’s album, “Put It On The Tab,” he recorded in a closet with blankets using a $50 interface and a $100 microphone. “The industry has changed, and you don’t necessarily need a quote, unquote, studio,” he said. “The untrained ear wouldn’t be able to tell if I did (recordings) in my room or in some studio in L.A.” While Restani said he could create quality music out of his home, he realized that a home studio required more work and didn’t project a professional image. He recently decided to move into a location on Wall Street, investing more than $15,000 in recording equipment. To differentiate his studio from others, Restani also builds websites for artists and integrates their music. “It’s not just music anymore,” he said. “It’s all come together and it’s media.”

He said it is important for artists to connect with their fans though Facebook, YouTube, SoundCloud and live stream networks. But many artists struggle with incorporating media into their business, he said, because they would rather focus on their music. The Sound Garden wants to give them both, quality recording services and an outlet to the Internet, Schouw said. “The community is really confused about what we do,” he said. “They’re used to playing in bars … . They’re a little slow on picking up on the space and what they can really do in here … .” Along with offering traditional recording services and a venue for bands to practice and perform, The Sound Garden will stream musicians’ performances, rehearsals or recording sessions live over the Internet for $6. “We shoot video just like anybody shoots a video, but then we run it though some processing that allows us to upload it into the Internet at a really high rate of speed, “ Schouw said.

Some bands use The Sound Garden’s streaming capability to reach out to their fans while they’re on the road. People watching the live stream can comment through a chat window, he said. Bands aren’t necessarily playing for a Bend audience, but for their online audience all over the world. “A lot of artists say, ‘How do I get out of Bend?’” Schouw said. “We can put you in any body’s living room from here to the south of France.” Steven Hartwell, owner of Featherlight Studios in Bend, said new technology not only allows musicians to perform for wider audiences, it also gives artists in various locations the opportunity to record together. They have the ability to do live session work online. “Its like the musical version of teleconferencing,” he said. “It allows people to play in real time with you and other musicians. “I think this is going to be the future of recording, getting people together in virtual domains.”

up so high, and then coming back down. That is one of the things that has caused much uncertainty,” said Gary Adams, vice president of economics and policy analysis for the National Cotton Council of America. “I think a lot of them can adjust more easily to the price level if they have some comfort of knowledge that prices are going to stay at that level.” The rise in commodity prices couldn’t happen without some underpinning in growing demand from big developing nations such as China and Brazil, which both host a rapidly expanding middle class. There have also been global cotton supply disruptions, including devastating flooding in Pakistan and an export ban on cotton from India in 2010. That’s why some experts see supply concerns, rather than financial speculation, as the primary driver of volatile cotton prices. “I think that there is a growing demand, a growing middle

class, particularly in Asia, that’s going to be consuming more and more goods,” said Tracy Linton, a veteran textiles industry executive with GSL Inc. in Tulsa, Okla. “You impact real supply a year at a time based on planting. There is a rising demand globally for cotton and cotton goods.” But there are other complicating factors. One is the rise of index-fund investment, where pension funds and other big institutional investors began viewing commodities as an asset class that often moved in the opposite direction of stocks. Toward the middle of the last decade, these funds began spreading a large amount of money across a range of commodities, from cotton and coffee to oil and natural gas. They took buy-and-hold strategies, rolling over their holdings as contracts expired as if they were holding a stock that they believed would increase in value over time.

Their expectation is that global growth over time will pull up demand for these raw materials and food products. Futures markets, however, aren’t designed to operate like the stock market. Instead, they’re supposed to help buyers and sellers find an equilibrium price. That’s why Heffington and others favor forcing speculators to take actual possession of some cotton. “I think the threat of a real delivery would be a real deterrent for speculation,” he said. Some analysts, such as the advocacy group Better Markets, argue that the influx of money into commodity markets has created a self-fulfilling prophecy of upward prices. In a March filing to the CFTC, which is in the process of finalizing limits for individual speculation in commodity markets, Better Markets said wheat prices had risen almost 80 percent over a 12-month period, heating oil 47 percent and cotton 140 percent.

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2011 • THE BULLETIN

Rock Hall Continued from G1 With fame and money at stake, it’s no surprise that a lot of backstage lobbying goes on. Why any particular act is chosen in any particular year is a mystery to performers as well as outsiders — and committee members say they want to keep it that way. The Bee Gees were passed over 11 times before being inducted in 1997; some fans and managers say the long wait reflected an anti-disco bias within the selection committees. And despite 27 studio albums and 45 years of touring, as well as a style that would influence many other artists, Alice Cooper was passed over 16 times before finally being inducted this year.

The hall-of-fame effect This hall-of-fame effect is well established in the recording industry. For instance, sales of Bee Gees albums surged to 1.1 million in 1997, the year of the group’s induction, from 210,000 in 1996. Sales of Fleetwood Mac albums jumped to 3.2 million in 1998, when that band was inducted, from 483,000 in 1997, according to SoundScan. In 2009, good news from Cleveland bolstered the career of Wanda Jackson, “the queen of rockabilly,” who gained fame in the mid-1950s and 60s. After Jackson was

inducted, she collaborated on an album with Jack White of the White Stripes. Suddenly Jackson, who is now 74, was everywhere, opening for Adele’s 2011 tour and even rocking out, alongside White, on the “Late Show With David Letterman.” “She had a phenomenal and, frankly, deserved refocus on her life and career,” says Joel Peresman, the president and chief executive of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. “I think we give some really deserved artists another chance at the spotlight.” Bands that split up near the peak of their popularity and then get back together for the induction ceremonies can reap the biggest rewards, because fans often dream of a big reunion tour, a la the Eagles. “With certain artists, it really gives them another bite at the apple,” Peresman says. But this being rock ’n’ roll, things don’t always go smoothly. The Sex Pistols were noshows at their induction in 2006. When Van Halen was inducted in 2007, fans buzzed that David Lee Roth would get back together with his old band mates and, possibly, agree to a reunion tour. But old squabbles resurfaced, several Van Halen members didn’t show, and Velvet Re-

Roger O’Donnell, left, and Robert Smith, of the British rock band The Cure, perform Nov. 25 at the Beacon Theater in New York. The band was one of the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

volver was brought in to play some Van Halen hits as a tribute. This year, many in the industry are watching Guns N’ Roses. The front man Axl Rose and the guitarist Saul Hudson, known as Slash, had a fallout during the early 1990s, when the band was at its peak. Speculation is rife that Rose and Slash might reunite for the ceremony. Rose has been playing with a rotating roster of musicians under

the Guns N’ Roses name, a move that has sharply divided fans. Big-name managers like Irving Azoff, who successfully reunited the Eagles, have tried and failed to get the original band together.

Keeping it secret Cooper, who is a friend of both Rose and Slash, says a reunion tour would be a huge hit. The payoff could be tens of millions of dollars, if not hundreds of millions.

Wine Continued from G1 Like a slap across the face, B---- grabbed the attention of a certain type of consumer, primarily young women en route to a bachelorette or divorce party, or looking for a special way to say, “I love you” on Mother’s Day. “They can buy it and say, ‘Here, b----, I bought you a present,’” said John Umbach, the owner of Joseph Victori Wines, which distributes Royal B---- and Sweet B----. Chatham Imports sensed the appeal of an irreverent women’s drink in 2005 when one of its distributors developed a promotional rum cocktail called Jealous B---- and shopped it around, diffidently, to bars and nightclubs. The sales representatives were a little nervous about how the name might go over. But young women loved it, and the company developed a wine to match the name. “The thing is, if you come out with a conservative label, it’s hard to separate yourself from the herd on the shelf,” Umbach said. “The competition is just brutal.” The competition is especially keen at the lower end of the market, where winemakers clamor for the attention of consumers looking for a drinkable chardonnay or cabernet for under $20. For years, winemakers and marketers have been frantically popularizing their products, shedding the chateau image and embracing a blue-collar beer aesthetic. Last year, the top-selling wine brand in the United States was Barefoot. The label shows not a stately mansion among the vines, but the footprint of one of the winery’s former owners. That irreverence reflects an evolution in the cultural presentation of wine that the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art mapped in the recent exhibition “How Wine Became Modern: Design and

Winemakers are labeling their product with eye-grabbing risque language to help market and sell their vino. “The thing is, if you come out with a conservative label, it’s hard to separate yourself from the herd on the shelf,” said John Umbach, owner of Joseph Victori Wines.

Wine 1976 to Now.” Traditionally, wine labels were purely informational. “Around 1980, however — earlier in the New World, somewhat later in Europe — labels became surfaces for communication, projecting a brand identity for the wine and trying to reach a target audience,” said Henry Urbach, an architectural curator who organized the exhibition with the architects Diller Scofidio & Renfro. Casual became cheeky. Now, cheeky has given way to saucy. In 2005, Brandever Strategy, a Vancouver brand consultancy, was hired by Scherzinger Estates, a sleepy winery in British Columbia, to create a new image and name. It came up with Dirty Laundry Vineyard — an allusion to a Chinese laundry and bordello that flourished nearby during the gold rush era. “Your immediate reaction is, this is not a good name for a wine, but that’s why it is a good name,” said Bernie Hadley-Beauregard, a principal in Brandever. “It has a scratchy hook to it.” Highway workers posted a new sign along the local wine route. Traffic into the winery increased tenfold. “The owner called me and said, ‘We haven’t done any advertising,

and co-founder of Rolling Stone magazine and cofounder of the hall of fame, says that most artists put aside their differences when inducted, even if it’s just for a night. The Van Halen fiasco was an anomaly, he says. Such dramas aside, the big issue for many industry insiders is the selection process itself. Doc McGhee, who manages Kiss, has been particularly critical. He says the hall of fame has had a bias against certain hard-rock bands like Kiss, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. (Kiss fans have gone so far as to stage rallies outside the hall of fame.) Peresman of the hall of fame says plans are in the works to get the public more involved. The hall recently introduced a feature on its website that lets fans vote for nominees. The poll, however, will have no impact on the committee’s decisions. Jon Landau, who manages Bruce Springsteen and is chairman of the nominating committee, concedes that the choices are subjective. But he defends the status quo. The hall of fame, he says, recognizes quality and influence, not record sales or flavor-ofthe-month popularity. “We’ve done a good job of keeping the proceedings nontransparent,” he says. “It all dies in the room.”

but suddenly we’re the toast of the Okanagan Valley.’” The newer, racier-sounding wines are unlikely to displace Barefoot, but they all chase the same dream. On the golden horizon, they see Fat Bastard, a line of wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region that was introduced in the United States in 1998. Imported by Peter Click of Click Wine Group, the line sold just over 2,000 cases at $10 a bottle in its first year. By 2004, Fat Bastard was selling 425,000 cases, making it one of the most popular French wines in the United States. The other wines do not come close to those numbers, but they have their little niche.

S!"#$% D&'()& An American icon gets some Persistent clunking a Pontiac family trait much-needed improvements By Jason H. Harper Bloomberg News

A freak snowstorm frosted over the Northeast in October when I was testing the 2012model Jeep Wrangler. Fortunate, since I was heading into Pennsylvania’s Pocono mountains, where snow was falling hard. As I turned REVIEW onto a rutted dirt road in the late afternoon, tree boughs were hanging heavy with the white stuff. The forest was beautiful, but the road was a mess. I slipped the $28,770, twodoor Sahara model into fourwheel drive and easily plowed through. Nothing like big knobby tires and plenty of ground clearance to joust with mother nature. The word iconic gets thrown around way too often, but in the case of the Jeep it qualifies. With roots that stem from the World War II runabout, you’ll find generations of the vehicle still on the road. Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari famously called the Jeep America’s only true sports car. That’s not entirely the case, but it’s not wrong-headed either. Its boxy shape is virtually imprinted with a go-West-and-find-adventure spirit. That undiluted design is deeply desirable. The brand is owned by the Chrysler Group. As Chrysler’s fortunes slid in the last few years, so too suffered the Wrangler. Lack of innovation left it with an inefficient, underpowered engine and creaky transmission. While the interiors were never luxurious, the latest generations just felt cheap. Chrysler has been sprucing up all its models, and the 2012 Wrangler’s makeover is a good one. They left alone the exterior — don’t mess with a classic — and focused on the powertrain. The former asthmatic 3.8liter V-6 was ousted in favor of an all-new, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6, also found on the latest Grand Cherokee. Despite a smaller displacement, it has more than 80 extra horsepower and 20-plus pound-feet of torque, bringing it to 285 and 260 respectively. Better if not great. Buyers who want an auto-

Chrysler has been sprucing up its models, and its Wrangler makeover is a good one.

2012 Jeep Wrangler Sahara and Unlimited Rubicon Price as tested: $28,770 (Sahara); $37,900 (Rubicon) Engine: 3.6-liter V-6 with 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Mileage: 17 mpg city, 21 mpg highway (automatic Sahara); 16 mpg city, 20 mpg highway (automatic Rubicon)

matic transmission will now get a five-speed rather than a four-speed. That’s about as cutting- edge as FM radio, but it’s also an incremental step toward modernity. Both the automatic Wrangler and the standard six-speed manual get 17 mpg city, 21 highway. Several weeks after playing in the snow — the Wrangler looks best when dirty — I tested the four-door model on the same roads. This longer, pricier Jeep is called the Wrangler Unlimited. The four-door looks and drives like a much bigger vehicle than the regular Wrangler. Little wonder that the extra room entices many buyers.

You can fit five passengers plus gear. With wide flared fenders, however, it can be a beast to navigate into garages or tight parking spaces. The Unlimited Rubicon is the top of the range, starting at $34,370. My test model had an automatic transmission and came to $37,900 with add-ons. For that price, you’d better be serious about your off-roading. Otherwise, a lesser Wrangler should suffice. Available with either a removable hard or soft top, the Unlimited is the only four-door convertible on the market. (A good trivia question.) Heavy-duty axles are able to take a beating from the roughest roads and the standard electronic locking front and rear differentials enable the vehicle to navigate through heavy snow or thick sand. No matter how much of a dirt-rock-and-snow hound you might be, at some point you’ll be driving on asphalt. And all those throwback 4X4 elements like the body-on-frame design and live axles take a toll on smoothness and stability when you’re doing 65 mph on the freeway. Nonetheless, I found both the two- and four-door models to be surprisingly forgiving on three-hour highway drives.

Road noise was significant but tolerable, and it tracked down the road confidently. I liked the steering. Drive older models with oversized tires and you feel like you’re going to tip over every time you turn. While I wouldn’t care to do a sudden evasive maneuver at high speed, this generation feels stable even when quickly changing lanes. But if you expect a high level of refinement, think again. The automatic transmission pushes through the gears with the subtlety of a divebar bouncer. Charge up a hill and the ensuing downshift is abrupt, with a corresponding rise in engine noise. That’s OK, though. While a lot of customers buy a Wrangler for the attitude and tough looks (and probably live to regret it), many others really do rely on its go-anywhere ability, as evidenced by my trip through the woods. You’ll see plenty of aging Wranglers in snow country with plows attached. And the latest interior is far easier to live with. It was updated for the 2011 model year, and includes options like touchscreen navigation system, automatic temperature controls, and heated seats. Those who want their vehicle a whole lot fancier should look at other SUVs like the Grand Cherokee or Ford Explorer. No, the new Wrangler isn’t perfect. You may have to wait for the next generation for more power, more gears and better gas mileage. But the most glaring foibles have been worked out and its pure design remains undiluted. Enzo would have approved.

My problem is with a Q: 2007 Pontiac G6 that I recently bought used from a

private owner. It has about 63,000 miles on it, and it’s a base model. I have a clunking noise coming from the steering area around the foot well, only in slow speed and parking maneuvering. Could you please give me some insight into what the problem may be? Thank you. —Sally Smor Great symptom description, Sally. This is a fairly common concern with this vehicle and its Chevy Malibu and Saturn Aura siblings. Like many vehicles, your G6 employs an intermediate steering shaft, which is situated between the steering column and rack and pinion, or steering, unit. The intermediate shaft contains two small universal joints to allow angular changes and a telescopic joint to protect you in the event of a major front collision. Among the possible causes of steering noises, the one most commonly mentioned for this vehicle is a lack of lubrication in the intermediate shaft’s telescopic joint. GM’s technical service bulletin 06-02-32-007G addresses this concern and lists a procedure to remove the intermediate shaft, lubricate the telescopic joint, and reinstall the part. The only problem is the fix doesn’t seem to last very long, and the clunk recurs. I don’t believe a little slop in the telescopic joint poses a safety concern, but

A:

the noise can certainly be discomfiting. The prudent course of action is to have the G6 checked for the exact cause of the noise and then determine a solution. Other possible causes of a clunk noise are loose subframe cradle bolts, a loose pinch bolt at the column to intermediate shaft connection, or a loose pinch bolt at the intermediate shaft to steering rack connection. The pinch bolt clamps can also be mispositioned. While these procedures and checks could be performed by any qualified automotive technician, I recommend taking the G6 to the dealer for this situation for two reasons. The dealer is privy to the most recent and hopefully effective repair option, and you want to build the most credible paper case related to this concern. I hesitate to mention this, but I would be remiss if I didn’t: Another rare concern that can occur with earlier versions of this vehicle platform, and possibly your model year, is a fault with the electric power steering system. The driver, alerted by a warning chime and a powersteering error message on the radio display, may lose steering assist, which results in very stiff but manageable steering. To repeat, this is a very rare situation, but is under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and it’s worthy of keeping an eye on. — Bergholdt teaches automotive technology.
