BEND-LA PINE SCHOOLS The Four Winds Foundation purchased 40 acres of vacant land from Deschutes County in 2002, for $120,000. Since then, the foundation has struggled to pay its $95,000 loan and has received two loan modifications from the county. The foundation recently requested another loan amendment, to allow more time for repayment and a lower interest rate.

Disquiet at Phil’s Trail: ‘Creepy’ man reported

Propane buses pitched to board By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin

Bend-La Pine Schools may soon purchase 28 new propane-fueled buses if the plan meets school board approval. The new buses would replace 16 diesel models with expiring leases and bring the district’s bus fleet total to 134. To make the roughly $3.2 million purchase this fiscal year, the district would either take out a bank loan or use a full faith and credit bond, neither of which requires voter approval because tax rates would be unaffected. Either option would be paid down over 10 years, according to the district. By also using a combination of money already reserved for transportation projects, the district would not spend any more general fund money than it already does on the expiring leases, according to Brad Henry, the district’s fiscal services director. “I believe we’ll more than get our value for any bus we own,” Henry said, adding that the district already owns most of its current buses. Bend-La Pine spends about $85,000 from its general fund each year on the expiring bus leases. That money would be used over the next decade to pay the new debt under the proposed purchase plan. The state refunds 70 percent of school transportation costs, and that money must be reinvested in transportation. The district will pay some of the debt with transportation reimbursements it has already saved, Henry said. Over the next decade, the state would reimburse Bend-La Pine 70 percent of the proposed bus purchase cost. That money would also pay down the remainder of debt, according to Henry. The Bend-La Pine School Board is scheduled to consider the proposal during its Tuesday meeting. See Propane / A4

Cyclists prepare for a ride Sunday near the Phil’s Trail trailhead. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has received two reports from women at Phil’s Trail complex made uncomfortable by the actions of a 40- to 50-year-old male cyclist speaking with a German accent. By Duffie Taylor

Women riding, running or walking at the Phil’s Trail complex may want to consider taking friends or a large dog with them just in case, after a suspicious man reportedly harassed at least two women there last week. A post that began circulating on Facebook on Thursday warned women frequenting the area off Skyliners Road to be on the lookout for a man in his 40s or 50s who has recently alarmed women with his “creepy” behavior. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office visited the area last week after receiving

two reports from women who were made uncomfortable by the man, but police have yet to identify him, said Sgt. Vance Lawrence on Sunday.

The unidentified writer of the post titled “Phil’s Strangeness” accuses the man of following close behind exercising women on his bike — even after repeatedly being asked to leave. It also says he has tried to lure solo women onto side trails. Lawrence said the post’s description of the cyclist as a 40- to 50-year-old male speaking with a German accent matches the reports police have received. Lawrence also said the man was described by police as “heavyset” but had no other information to identify him, he said. See Disquiet / A4

At his best friend’s wedding reception on the California coast, David Peterson stood to deliver his best-man toast. He held his Champagne glass high and shouted “Hajas!” The 50 guests raised their glasses and chanted “Hajas!” in unison. The word, which means “be strong” and is pronounced “hah-DZHAS,” has great significance for Peterson.

PANAMA: Noriega returns for more jail time, A3

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — As he waited for a disciplinary appeal hearing to begin this fall, the sixth-grade student began sobbing. He was barely 11 years old. He was slated to be expelled again — for a year — from his elementary school district, this time for alleged sexual battery and obscenity. The offense: “Slapping a girl on the buttock and running away laughing.” The boy’s pro bono attorney, Tim McKinley, was appalled. “This, on his record, puts him right up there next to the kid who raped somebody behind the backstop,” said McKinley, who spent 26 years as an FBI agent.

To save a species, you gotta hatch some eggs

It’s Monday, Dec. 12, the 346th day of 2011. There are 19 days left in the year.

By Nancy Szokan The Washington Post

The Ozark hellbender has finally been bred in captivity, scientists announced last week. No, this does not mean that they have raised backwoods party animals in jail. It means that a years-long effort by researchers at the St. Louis Zoo has resulted in 120 fertilized eggs laid by an endangered species of salamander found only in Arkansas and Missouri. The first hatched last week, and the scientists expected more than 100 more to hatch soon. “There is a lot of excitement here — we’ve been working on this for a long, long time,” Jeff Ettling, the zoo’s curator of herpetology and aquatics, said in a telephone news conference. The Ozark hellbender is one of the largest salamanders in the world, reaching about two feet in length. Long familiar to fishermen — the scientists repeated two of its many nicknames, “snot otter” and “old lasagna sides” — the species

Ozark hellbenders are large salamanders, but each is tiny at birth.

has declined precipitously in recent decades; fewer than 600 are believed to remain. Scientists think this might be due to degradation of its natural habitat — clean running water — and disease caused by an organism called the chytrid fungus. “The Ozark hellbender is essentially an aquatic canary in a coal mine,” Ettling said.

“If there is something in the water that is causing the hellbender to decline, it is likely to be affecting people who live near these rivers.” In fact, he added, researchers have noted a decline in the sperm count of human males living in the area where hellbenders are disappearing. The research may also help save other animals. “Amphib-

ians are in trouble worldwide, in large part because of the chytrid fungus,” said Eric Miller, director of the zoo’s WildCare Institute. “Anything we learn that helps us manage the chytrid fungus in captivity, and more importantly in the future in the wild, would have impact on all amphibians.” He and herpetologist Jeff Briggler said scientists could learn important information about the spread of chytrid fungus by tracking the newly hatched, disease-free hellbenders after they are released into the wild. “If we can catch them in the future and determine if they are infected in the wild ... it’ll help us address some of the reasons for decline,” Briggler said. The scientists bred the hellbenders in a spacious facility mimicking the creatures’ natural habitat: two outdoor streams 40 feet long and six feet deep, with large rocks for hiding and man-made nest boxes. Water was treated and sprinklers were timed to simulate the Ozark environment.

Madeline has asthma and remains petite — 4 foot 8 and about 65 pounds at age 20; Rumaisa at age 5 weighed 33 pounds and was 31⁄2 feet tall, smaller than about 90 percent of kids her age. Current information on the girls’ size was not in the report. Jim Mann, Madeline’s father, said having a baby born so small was “terrifying” at first.

But other than asthma, the only lasting effect his daughter has mentioned is having trouble finding age-appropriate clothes because she remains so small, he said. That she has done so well is a source of pride, and wonder, her dad said. “I don’t know why, we were just extraordinarily lucky,” Mann said.

T S Congress edges toward compromise on spending By Rosalind S. Helderman The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Put this in the “small accomplishments” category for Congress: It appears exceedingly unlikely that lawmakers will let the government close down at the end of this week, when a short-term funding measure expires. Partisan clashes have brought the government to the

brink of a shutdown three times in the past year. But this time appropriators from the House and Senate have been quietly working toward a presentation late today of a compromise spending measure that would outline how government agencies should spend nearly $1 trillion through Sept. 30, 2012. Their work has largely been overshadowed by a bitter fight

between Republicans and President Barack Obama over extending a one-year cut in the payroll tax, paid by 160 million workers, when it lapses at the end of the month. The payroll-tax fight will continue this week, as the House votes on a GOP-authored proposal that would link the extension of the tax cut sought by Obama with GOP priorities, in-

cluding a measure to speed the construction of the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline. On Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RKy., predicted that some Democrats who support construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast would vote for the Republican bill. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has said

the GOP measure is a “partisan joke” that cannot win approval in the Democrat-controlled Senate. Speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., acknowledged that the pipeline was “probably not going to sell.” He predicted Congress would find a way to broker a different bipartisan compromise to extend the tax cut.

With markets opening, euro deal to be tested By Steven Erlanger and Liz Alderman New York Times News Service

Ex-Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega gestures Sunday while being carried in a wheelchair by a police officer inside El Renacer prison on the outskirts of Panama City. Noriega returned home Sunday, concluding his extradition from France after more than 20 years in U.S. and French prisons.

Noriega back in Panama for more prison time By Randal C. Archibold New York Times News Service

PANAMA CITY — Nearly 22 years ago, a U.S. military plane whisked the de facto leader of this nation, Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega, off to Florida to face trial, and ultimately a prison sentence, for drug trafficking. On Sunday evening, a commercial airliner landed here with much less fanfare, carrying him back. After a flight of more than 15 hours from Paris, where he had served additional time for money laundering, Noriega arrived at El Renacer Prison, a former U.S. facility, to complete a 20-year sentence for three convictions stemming from several deaths and await possible further judgment in Panama’s courts. As the plane descended, a doctor checked Noriega, 77,

who appeared to react to seeing the capital city from the air for the first time in years, a correspondent on the plane said. Noriega was kept from public view after landing at 6:08 p.m. aboard Iberia Airlines Flight 6345. A photo released by the Panamanian government showed him at the prison in a wheelchair, with a thin smile and wearing a dark suit, a red tie and a dark windbreaker slung partly over him. Later, prison officials, responding to rumors that Noriega was not really in Panama, wheeled him to a doorway and Noriega, now in a red long-sleeve shirt and white sweatpants, gestured to reporters kept far away. The prison director, Angel Calderon, said Noriega was declining interviews and close-up pictures.

Military’s last detainee in Iraq a dilemma for Obama New York Times News Service WASHINGTON — As U.S. troops prepare to exit Iraq at the end of the month, the Obama administration is facing a significant dilemma over what to do with the last remaining detainee held by the U.S. military in Iraq. The detainee, Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese suspected of being a Hezbollah operative, is accused of helping orchestrate a January 2007 raid by Shiite militants that resulted in the death of five U.S. soldiers. The administration is wrestling with either turning him over to the Iraqi government — as the United States did with its other wartime prisoners — or seeking a way to take him with the

military as it withdraws, according to interviews with officials familiar with the deliberations. But each option for dealing with Daqduq has drawbacks, officials say, virtually guaranteeing that his fate will add a messy footnote to the end of the Iraq War. Daqduq is likely to be a subject of negotiation when Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of Iraq meets with President Barack Obama at the White House today. “There are serious and ongoing deliberations about how to handle this individual to best protect U.S. service members and broader U.S. interests,” said Tommy Vietor, a spokesman for the National Security Council.

VIENNA — The deal on Friday in Brussels to reformulate the rules of the eurozone has probably saved the shared currency for now — but there may be less to it than meets the eye. At least four major issues still need to be resolved: how much money is needed to protect Italy now from speculative attack; whether banks will stumble because of the crisis; the isolation of Britain, which does not belong to the eurozone; and not least, whether the Brussels cure, prescribed by Germany, fits the disease. With mounds of European debt due to be refinanced early next year, the crisis is far from over. “More tests will obviously come, and soon,” perhaps as early as the opening of financial markets today, said Joschka Fischer, the former German foreign minister. The agreement, under which the eurozone’s 17 member governments ac-

cept more oversight and control of national budgets by the European Union, “was a big step, which was pushed on the Europeans by the markets,” Fischer said. Germany got nearly unanimous agreement on a treaty to pursue its favored remedy for the sovereign-debt crisis: fiscal discipline, central oversight and sanctions on countries that break the rules about debt limits, which will be written into national laws. The rules themselves are not new: They recap the ceilings set when the euro was created, with deficits limited to 3 percent of gross domestic product and cumulative debt eventually held to 60 percent of GDP. Now, though, those formulas will have teeth. But many argue that the core problem is less discipline than the lack of economic growth

and the deep current-account imbalances — exporters versus importers — within the eurozone. Austerity tends to brings recession, not growth, and Europe needs growth to cope with its debt. But structural changes and investments to accelerate growth and competitiveness generally take years to bear fruit. In the meantime, analysts say, financial markets will continue to project an almost bipolar reaction to the crisis, lurching forward on hopes of political breakthroughs and slumping anew as the Continent’s economy and its banks deteriorate in tandem.

Languages Continued from A1 Some people build model railroads or reenact Civil War battles; Peterson, a 30-yearold who studied linguistics at the University of California, San Diego, is a “con-langer,” a person who constructs new languages. Until recently, this mostly quixotic linguistic pursuit, born out of a passion for words and grammatical structures, lived on little-visited websites or in college dissertations. Today, a desire in Hollywood to infuse fantasy and sciencefiction movies, television series and video games with a sense of believability is driving demand for constructed languages, complete with grammatical

“There’s no increase in dollar amount, but we’re gaining so much more benefit we can offer schools. It just seems like a win-win all the way around.” —Denice Blake, Bend-La Pine Schools transportation supervisor, on the possibility of getting more propane buses

Propane Continued from A1 The district already has more than two dozen propane buses in its fleet, and they have proven to be cheaper to run than diesel buses, according to Denice Blake, the district’s transportation supervisor. The diesel and propane buses get similar mileage, but the fuel costs differ significantly, according to Blake. Bend-La Pine currently pays about $3.50 per gallon of diesel and $1.70 per gallon of propane. Additionally, the district receives a federal 50-cent refund for every gallon of propane purchased. Propane-fueled buses also require less frequent maintenance and, unlike the diesel versions, do not spit out black smoke, Blake said. “We can’t say enough good things about them,” she said. The additional buses would allow the district more flexibility. With the current fleet, Bend-La Pine has about three extra buses. That means only three buses at once can be taken out of service for maintenance. That shortage spreads to district extracurriculars, too. Bend-La Pine sometimes must borrow buses from surrounding school districts, and the new buses would help cut down on that, Blake said. “There’s no increase in dollar amount, but we’re gaining so much more benefit we can offer schools. It just seems like a win-win all the way around,” Blake said. — Reporter: 541-633-2161,

Disquiet Continued from A1 “We’re not sure if he’s trying to pick up women or what,” Lawrence said. “But we are aware of the situation, and we want to identify him.” Lawrence said police went to the area following reported incidents on Dec. 4 and Dec. 7, and notified deputies and U.S. Forest Service patrol officers working in the area. “It’s not anything that raises big red flags at the moment, but we are looking at the place,” Lawrence said. Bicyclists preparing for rides at the trailhead Sunday said they had not heard reports of the man or his behavior, but were alarmed that he was frequenting the trails. “Yuck,” said Bend cyclist Tyler Miller. “I come out here a lot, and I haven’t heard or seen anything. But I think that’s horrible.” Uriel Fox, another regular cyclist in the area, said she was upset that incidents had women feeling uncomfortable. “I see women riding alone here all the time and it makes me really happy,” Fox said. “It’s a bummer that that’s happening. I’m glad people are speaking up, though.” Anyone with more information to offer police is encouraged to call the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number, 541-693-6911. — Reporter: 541-383-0376,

rules, a written alphabet (hieroglyphics are acceptable) and enough vocabulary for basic conversations. In “Game of Thrones,” Dothraki-speaking characters greet each other by saying “M’athchomaroon!” (hello) give each other commands like “Azzohi haz khogare” (put down that cask) and occasionally utter sentiments like “Vezh fin saja rhaesheseres vo zigereo adoroon shiqethi!” (the stallion that mounts the world has no need for iron chairs!) that don’t seem to make sense in any language. And this being an HBO show, there’s also a fair bit of “athhilezar” (sex). “The days of aliens spouting gibberish with no grammatical structure are over,” said Paul

Suspensions Continued from A1 Having lost twice at the local level, McKinley will now appeal the boy’s expulsion on Tuesday before the Kern County Board of Education. These days, disagreements over discipline are common. And Kern County schools — 48 districts in all — are at the leading edge of a contentious debate. Teachers and parents want a safe environment, and school districts are ousting students for a range of reasons. Meanwhile, a national reform movement is growing, fueled by reports that suspension and expulsion policies are disproportionately targeting minorities, and putting many students on a fast track to failure. Since the 1970s, expulsions have been on the rise, many of them not for violence, but for

Foundation Continued from A1 Four Winds Foundation was founded to teach and preserve Native American traditions, such as the sweat lodges and initiation ceremonies for boys and girls that took place on the 40-acre property. The foundation charges for some programs — $125 for a boys initiation in 2010 — and requests donations for other work, such as native ways classes in Bend, according to its website. However, the foundation has struggled to pay for Deer Haven since it purchased the property from Deschutes County for $120,000 in 2002. Four Winds has not paid its loan since June, and currently owes the county approximately $3,600 in principal, interest and penalties, according to a letter from the county Finance Department to the foundation. An attorney working pro bono for the foundation recently asked county officials for a lower interest rate and more time to repay the loan. This would be the foundation’s third loan amendment. In fall 2009, county officials agreed to let the foundation pay only interest for one year; in October 2010, the county reduced the interest rate from 8.4 per-

Frommer, professor emeritus of clinical management communication at the University of Southern California who created Na’vi, the language spoken by the giant blue inhabitants of Pandora in “Avatar.” Disney recently hired Frommer to develop a Martian language called Barsoomian for “John Carter,” a science-fiction movie premiering in March. The shift is slowly transforming the obscure hobby of language construction into a viable, albeit rare, career and engaging followers of fantasies like “Lord of the Rings,” “Game of Thrones” and “Avatar” on a more fanatical level. “Game of Thrones,” based on the best-selling novels “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George

R.R. Martin, may be the biggest television showcase for an invented language. The books, which primarily follow feuding kingdoms in the fictional land of Westeros, had a scattering of Dothraki words, but the show’s executive producers wanted a fully formed language. Several scenes in “Game of Thrones” take place entirely in Dothraki with English subtitles. In one episode, the shirtless tribal leader Khal Drogo delivered a monologue for two and a half minutes in Dothraki, with its subject-verb-object structure and no copula, or linking verb. There have been many attempts to create languages, often for specific political effect. In the 1870s, a Polish doctor invented Esperanto, meant to

be a simplified international language that would bring world peace. Suzette Haden Elgin created Laaden as a language better suited for expressing women’s points of view. (Laaden has a single word, “bala,” that means “I’m angry for a reason but nothing can be done about it.”) But none of the hundreds of languages created for social reasons developed as ardent a following as those created for movies, television and books, says Arika Okrent, author of “In the Land of Invented Languages.” “For years people have been trying to engineer better languages and haven’t succeeded as well as the current era of language for entertainment sake

alone,” Okrent said. The watershed moment for invented languages was the creation of a Klingon language by the linguist Marc Okrand for “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” (on the original “Star Trek” television series, Klingons spoke mostly English). That led to a Klingon Language Institute (a registered nonprofit), a Klingon version of Monopoly, an official dictionary and a published translation of “Hamlet.” Klingon, with its throaty, harsh sound, is notoriously tough. (“I’ll admit, I’m not a very good speaker,” Okrand said in an interview.) Fewer than 20 people are fully fluent in Klingon, though thousands more know enough to get by.

lesser violations like insubordination, according to research by associates of the Civil Rights Project of the University of California at Los Angeles. The “zero tolerance” phenomenon accelerated after the 1999 shooting spree at Colorado’s Columbine High School. School boards and administrators began exercising discretion more broadly in deciding how tough to be in interpreting behavior codes. A vast expanse of 8,000 square miles, Kern County produces 10 percent of U.S. oil and has the third highest farm earnings of any county nationwide. But about 22 percent of residents lived below the poverty line in 2009. Latinos have grown to become the largest ethnic group in schools, at 61 percent. Last year, Kern County was home to about 173,360 students, or fewer than 3 percent

of all of California’s pupils. But 14 percent of the state’s total of 18,648 expulsions took place here, according to data reported to California Department of Education. Bakersfield High School, in Kern’s biggest city, reported ejecting 232 of its 2,755 pupils. Christine Lizardi Frazier, Kern County’s superintendent of schools, defends the policies. “They are not being expelled for pushing and shoving,” Frazier said. “It is really hard to look away when they’re bringing a gun or a knife or selling drugs.” But the statistics tell a more complicated story. A Center for Public Integrity analysis shows that few of Kern’s 2,578 expelled students were accused of serious violations — brandishing a knife or gun — that actually require expulsion. Instead, most expulsions encompassed a range of

allegations for which administrators have discretion to recommend some other punishment to school boards, which have the ultimate authority. Some 522 Kern students were ousted for “causing, attempting or threatening to cause physical injury.” Another common reason for expulsions: using intoxicants, from beer to illegal street drugs to prescription drugs. Schools expelled 843 students for this violation. Authorities here say their community supports tough discipline. “No one is running for the board on a platform of keeping obscenity-spewing or drugselling kids in (regular) school,” said Bryan Batey, a parent and president of the board of trustees for the Kern High School District. But for McKinley, now with Greater Bakersfield Legal As-

sistance, Inc., the evidence is troubling. “Those statistical anomalies ... show there is something seriously wrong going on here,” the former FBI agent said. “You can’t tell me kids here are any worse than in Los Angeles or other places.” McKinley’s complaints dovetail with recent studies. In July, the Council of State Governments released a study tracking all Texas seventhgraders through their senior year. About 60 percent had been suspended or expelled at least once, but on average, eight times. Data collected in 2010 in North Carolina showed that among black students cited for a first-time cellphone violation in schools, 32 percent were given suspension. Less than 15 percent of white students received the same punishment for the same violation.

cent to 5.75 percent and extended the term by three years, according to a county staff report. The foundation also received financial support and a tax break from the county. County commissioners were prepared at the end of November to cut the interest rate to 5 percent and give the foundation an additional nine years to repay the loan. However, attorney Tia Lewis asked the commissioners on Nov. 30 to give the foundation an additional 10 years on the loan. “It’s particularly difficult for them in the winter months to fundraise because their efforts are really related to natural resource education, cultural resource education on the site with children and … in the really winter months, they can’t get as many people on the site and do programs,” Lewis said. County commissioners said they would have county staff look again at the loan terms. Mann said he is not a board member and does not know the details of the foundation’s finances, but it is difficult to raise money because the group does not charge for people to participate in some of the ceremonies. “It’s tough,” Mann said. “Some of the Lakota teachings is, we don’t charge for

teachings. If someone wants to come and pray, we don’t ask for money. We just put out a donation basket.” The president of Four Winds Foundation, Sweet Medicine Nation, did not return telephone calls or an email. Deschutes County has been one of the foundation’s consistent supporters. In addition to twice changing its loan terms, the county made a one-time payment to the group several years ago for its education work. While Four Winds struggled over the years to raise private funds, Deschutes County pitched in with significant financial and in-kind contributions. In the 2006 budget year, the county gave the foundation $10,000 in federal timber payment monies designated for “forest related educational opportunities,” according to a county document. Congress began timber payment subsidies in 2000 to replace money that counties lost as a result of the decline in logging. The payments are set to end next year. The foundation used the $10,000 to take kids on field trips and teach them about wildfire and forest ecology and bird and fish habitat, county Forester Joe Stutler said in an

interview last year. Four Winds Foundation also receives a property tax break at Deer Haven, through a state and county program that reduces taxes for property owners who follow specific plans to protect and improve wildlife habitat on their land. Last year, the organization’s tax bill was only $2.67, instead of the nearly $1,500 it would otherwise have owed, according to county assessor’s data. In 2002, Four Winds Foundation reported income of $10,337 and expenses of $5,687 on a nonprofit tax return form. It was the only year the nonprofit appears to have reported information about its finances. Four Winds Foundation is incorporated in Oregon as a religious corporation, according to Secretary of State’s records, and the Internal Revenue Service also classified it as a religious organization, according to the Oregon Department of Justice. “We checked the IRS classification for this organization, and it appears that the IRS has classified it as a church, which could explain the lack of 990 filings,” Department of Justice spokesman Tony Green wrote in an email Thursday. Recently, Deschutes County stepped forward again to help

the organization. Planners applied for and received a $2,500 state grant to survey the property for Native American and other cultural artifacts. Sam Willis, a doctoral candidate in archeology and soil science at Oregon State University, was hired as a consultant to survey Deer Haven. Willis said he completed the survey in November and is currently writing the report. Most of what Willis found at Deer Haven was what archeologists call debitage, basically a French word for trash. In this case, Native Americans made stone tools on the site and left behind chipped stone. These types of artifacts are “pretty common for that area,” Willis said. There was also evidence of a wagon road that cut through the property, and piles of stones known as cairns. It is unclear whether the cairns were created by Native Americans or by more recent inhabitants in the area, such as ranchers, Willis said. State law protects archeological sites, but Willis said it’s too early for him to say whether Deer Haven qualifies for that protection. “I’m not sure yet,” he said. “That will have to wait until after the report’s done.” — Reporter: 541-617-7829,

A new way to sample the season


ext week marks the official start of winter. In Central Oregon, of course, that season has already been under way for weeks. Ski lifts are running, the sagebrush is frostbitten and we’ve thrown out any notion of eating “local” foods that aren’t found in a freezer or a can. Think again. Central Oregon Locavore, an online network of local food producers, is planning a community dinner in late January or early February to showcase seasonal fare grown and made locally. It’s part of a plan by Nicolle Timm, the group’s founder, to host four meals a year to celebrate the seasons. The group tested the idea in early November, when the challenge — to serve an affordable gourmet meal based on fresh, local foods — sounded nearly as infeasible as it will in February. But the result? Just try to read on without letting your mouth water. The Root Down Community Dinner, which sold out in advance, was held inside Primal Cuts Meat Market on Galveston Avenue. The first course was a buffet, with cheeses from Tumalo Farms and Cada Dia Cheese, a small dairy in Prineville. Bryan Tremayne, the owner of Primal Cuts Meat Market, assembled a platter of charcuterie from across Oregon. Gordon Benzer, owner of baked. bakery, prepared a variety of breads, including a rich challah made with eggs from three local farms. He even used wheat grown by Rainshadow Organics in Terrebonne and milled in downtown Bend. Pears, apples and plums — all foraged from Bend’s west side — were sliced and served alongside the hardier fare. And guests sipped hot spiced cider, pressed from apples also gathered from local yards. For the family-style dinner, 60 or so diners crowded around three long tables adorned with tea candles set in tiny, hollowed-out pumpkins. Chefs from Spork — an eclectic take-out joint housed in an Airstream trailer usually parked on Galveston — prepared side dishes. Mountains of mashed potatoes, for example, included purple potatoes from Juniper Jungle Permaculture Farm east of Bend; Yukon golds from Fields Farm in Bend; and sweet potatoes grown in a friend’s greenhouse near Sunriver. Tremayne cooked the main course: a whole pig, raised by DD Ranch in Terrebonne. He smoked it all day, periodically injecting the animal with brine and basting its skin with spices. For dessert, Benzer prepared a smorgasbord of cookies and pies. The meal ended with a standing ovation for the chefs and farmers. Then everyone waddled home. Stuffed. On local foods. In November. This supper was unusual in that nobody but the farmers profited. The $25 per plate fee covered only raw ingredients. Chefs and wait staff donated their time. And nobody was asked to donate to a charitable cause. According to the organizers, one reason for these dinners is to provide a special gourmet meal that’s relatively affordable. Another is to bust the myth that Central Oregon’s season for local foods is fleeting. “The climate is not actually the hardest thing for small farmers in Central Oregon,” Benzer says. The high price of real estate, combined with government policies that favor larger corporate farms, he says, pose a greater challenge. The next community supper will be held in a different venue, with different chefs collaborating. The exact date and menu will be announced later. But a few things are for sure: it’ll sell out quickly and, despite what the calendar says, it’s likely to feature a variety of delicious foods from local sources. The weather may be tough, but so are local farmers and food producers. Don’t underestimate them. — Lily Raff McCaulou is a columnist for The Bulletin. 541-617-7836,

Patent sought for fish bypass

Cold and cloudy skies this week

By Duffie Taylor The Bulletin

Madras businessman Paul Jensen says he has invented a way to separate fish passing through dams without harming them. He’s submitted an application to patent the invention he’s titled the Juvenile Fish Bypass System and is wait-

ing for approval. Those backing Jensen are waiting as well. The Jefferson County Commission loaned him $50,000 to help him move forward with the invention, which commissioners believe “could have worldwide implications” for the hydroelectric industry.

But Jensen’s seven-year effort to produce and patent the system has taken its toll. He was recently turned down by the county when he asked for additional funds to pay for preliminary tests patent officials say they require to approve the product. See Fish bypass / B5

Scholarship shortage?

Central Oregonians should expect cold weather and clouds this week, with the chance that a storm may roll through the region by Wednesday or Thursday, according to the National Weather Service office in Pendleton. Forecaster Vincent Papal predicted a 20 percent chance of snow showers today and very little sunshine. High temperatures are expected to be in the 30s today and in the 40s Tuesday and Wednesday. Low temperatures throughout the beginning of the week should be in the teens, he said. A storm could come through by Wednesday, with a slight chance of rain and snow Wednesday night through Friday. Lows are expected to be in the 20s and highs in the 30s or 40s for the remainder of the week, Papal said.

Mountain View High School teams practice in the gym Thursday evening. The Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools, which offers need-based athletic scholarships, predicts $60,000 in requests this year with only $40,000 available.

• Demand for pay-to-play scholarships is outpacing fundraising efforts, officials say By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin


ocal school officials are alarmed by the growing disparity between the availability of pay-toplay scholarships and the demand for them. For the third consecutive year, requests for need-based sports scholarships in Bend-La Pine Schools has

outpaced fundraising efforts. The Education Foundation for Bend-La Pine Schools has for years raised money to help needy students cover the district’s pay-to-play fees. The last time, however, the foundation was able to pay for all requested scholarships was the 2008-09 school year. Though there have been promising signs of economic recovery, district

officials worry that local families are continuing to hurt financially. Mountain View High School Athletic Director Dave Hood has noticed more families than ever asking for help. In fall 2006, the school’s athletes requested $1,755 worth of scholarships. That number began growing about three years ago, Hood said. See Pay-to-play / B5

A Bend man and woman were arrested Sunday after police received information that the two were selling methamphetamine from their motel room. Elvira Anita Silva, 36, and Brian Matthew Fee, 46, of Bend, were arrested at about 2 a.m. on suspicion of the manufacture, possession and distribution of methamphetamine after police executed a search warrant at a motel on Northeast Division Street in Bend. Deputies found an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine and other related items in the room where Fee and Silva were staying, according to a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office news release. A third person, Tyler Scott Winkler, 33, of Redmond, was also arrested on suspicion of possession of methamphetamine and frequenting a place where drugs are used, kept or sold. The three remained lodged in Deschutes County jail on Sunday night. — Bulletin staff reports

Sisters Health center appoints new CEO from Prineville ranger retiring LA PINE

By Leon Pantenburg For The Bulletin

The La Pine Community Health Center has a new chief executive officer. Charla McKenzie DeHate, of Prineville, was chosen to fill the spot after the former CEO, Al Gugenberger, retired. “We’re excited to have Charla here,” Doby Fugate, chairman of the health center, said. “She has experience in managing a clinic and medical facility and is very qualified to handle the position.” DeHate was born in Redmond, grew up in Bend and graduated from Bend High School. After graduating from the University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine, she worked in Portland, Los Angeles and Vero Beach, Fla., before returning to Central Oregon 10 years ago. For the past 24 years, DeHate has managed and directed facilities in the medical field, most recently as CEO of Mosaic Medical in Prineville. DeHate moved to the La Pine health center, she said, because her experience at Mosaic reaffirmed her desire to work in a medically underserved rural area. “There is a high percentage of retired people on Medicare in this area,” DeHate said. “It takes more resources to assist these patients, and that means higher costs.” The center, located at 51600 Huntington Road, was established in 2002 as a medical facility to provide a range of primary care services. In 2007, a board of directors

was formed, Fugate said, and the center became a nonprofit in 2008. Since then, the facility has operated mainly on federal funds. The center also serves north Lake County, Christmas Valley, Silver Lake and Lakeview. DeHate sees continued funding as one of the major challenges of her new position. See DeHate / B5

Continued from B1 When the saws began to spin again, Anthony served as a mediator between groups calling for an end to logging and groups saying they wanted a return to the cutting of the previous 50 years. “This district used to have a large amount of large timber,” Anthony said, but he helped steer it away from heavy harvesting. “We just don’t have a large supply of large trees,” he said. And federal environmental rules and laws locked those trees away for spotted owl habitat and old-growth preserves, if they weren’t already protected in wilderness areas where logging isn’t allowed. The focus of the district moved to ways to thin the woods, clearing away smaller trees and overgrown brush that spur the spread of wildfire. In developing plans for these thinning projects, Anthony involved groups with differing views, said John Allen, supervisor of the Deschutes National Forest. “He’s always done a great job to collaborate and work with people through some tough issues,” Allen said, and in doing so, earned their respect. Sandy Lonsdale — an environmental activist who used to lead Sierra Club efforts in Central Oregon — said Anthony was gracious, smart and well-spoken. “He was one of the more enlightened district rangers,” he said. Anthony was open to new ideas about thinning and forest management, said Tim Lillebo, Eastern Oregon field representative for Oregon Wild — a Portland-based conservation group. “I thought he was one of the innovators as far as the Forest Service goes,” Lillebo said. In creating thinning plans, Anthony would involve timber companies, said Chuck Burley, timber manager for the Interfor mill in Gilchrist. “We didn’t always agree all the time,” Burley said, “but he was easy to work with.” That held true during stressful times, according to Eileen Stein, city manager for Sisters, and Tay Robertson, chief of the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District. “It’s been a great working relationship and I’ll miss him terribly,” said Stein. Both Stein and Robertson worked with Anthony during wildfires and through the development of thinning plans close to Sisters. In the last decade, more than 160,000 acres of the

district’s 318,000 acres have burned — about 90,000 of those acres in the massive B&B Complex Fire in 2003, according to Forest Service records. Thinning projects have covered about 80,000 acres of the district, Allen said, leaving about 75,000 acres unburned or untreated during Anthony’s tenure. Lightning caused the largest fires — which raged through forests made thick by close to a century of aggressive firefighting — in the district over the last decade, Allen said. He said Anthony’s management of the district didn’t contribute to the fires. “It was all conditions that were set and predisposed before Bill got there,” he said. Anthony, who has a master’s degree in forest management from Utah State University, started his Forest Service career with the Deschutes National Forest as a forest planner in the 1980s. He then worked at the national headquarters in Washington, D.C.; the United Nations for four months, focused on a tropical forest planning project in

Rome; and at the Forest Service’s regional office in Lakewood, Colo. Before becoming the district ranger in Sisters, he had the same post for five years in Boulder, Colo. In retirement, Anthony said he plans to spend time traveling with his wife of 26 years — Tracey, 58 — and seeing his son, Nick Anthony, 21, who is a physics major at the University of Oregon. The couple plans to keep living on their five-acre plot just north of Sisters. While Bill Anthony said he’s promised his wife that during his first year of retirement the only commitments he will make will be to her, he said he might eventually become involved with public lands or environmental education again. “I can’t imagine not being involved somehow,” he said. — Reporter: 541-617-7812,

O N Applicants seek state funds for projects The Associated Press SALEM — The Oregon Department of Transportation has received applications for 70 projects seeking a share of lottery proceeds aimed at improving air, rail, transit and water connections in the state. The Statesman Journal says projects include rehabilitation of Salem’s downtown transit mall and repairs of Willamette Valley Railway Co. bridges. The applications add up to $84.6 million. That’s more double the $40 million available from lottery-backed bonds for Connect Oregon. Department of Transportation chief spokesman, Patrick Cooney, said the applications have not yet been screened to determine whether they qualify for funding under the program. One application is for $3 million by the Salem-Keizer Transit District for rehabilitation of the downtown transit mall at Courthouse Square. The transit mall and office building have been closed because of numerous problems. State money would be matched by a 20 percent contribution by the transit district, said Allan Pollack, the district’s general manager. The money would go toward work on the transit mall, not the building, he said. McMinnville-based Willamette Valley Railway Co. has asked for $904,000 for bridge repairs. Region 2, which includes Marion and Polk counties, accounts for 23 applications for $29.3 million in projects. Each of the five transportation department administrative regions is guaranteed at least 10 percent of the total. Qualifying applications will be reviewed by several panels. Finalists will be approved in the summer by the Oregon Transportation Commission.


Ashland on a list of top retiree towns By Sam Wheeler Ashland Daily Tidings

Ashland is being called one of the nation’s top towns for on-the-move retirees to settle down in. Where to Retire magazine, a publication aimed at retirees in pursuit of a new hometown, will feature Ashland in its upcoming issue as one of the top eight tempting low-tax towns in the nation. “Ashland is a recreational and cultural playground, especially appealing to today’s active baby boomers and retirees,” said Mary Lu Abbot, editor of Where to Retire. “And, there’s the added bonus of a lowerthan-average tax burden on retirees.” The bimonthly magazine bases its tax burden rankings on in-house research methods made popular through a series of books and reports it has published since beginning in 1992. Abbot said the research takes into consideration state and local tax levies in 203 cities across the U.S., as well as health care, climate, crime and other factors before naming the eight cities to represent their respective regions. “Ashland has among the lowest total tax burdens of all those surveyed,” she said. “Having no state sales tax is a factor, and local

property taxes are low compared with other cities.” In addition, Abbot said individuals don’t have to pay personal property taxes in Ashland, whereas people in many other communities pay that sort of tax on their motor vehicles. In no particular order, Ashland will be featured alongside: Port Townsend, Wash., Kalispell, Mont., Carson City, Nev., Oxford, Miss., Vero Beach, Fla., Abingdon, Va., and Portsmouth, N.H. in the Where to Retire’s upcoming issue, available Dec. 20., under the title, “8 Tempting Low-Tax Towns.” “Ashland has been nominated in these types of polls before “... but we’re always working to invite a younger more active visitor.” said Katharine Flanagan, marketing director of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce. “However, we always Bend Redmond 541.388.2333 541.548.9159

invite back our loyal visitors, which makes up a good portion of the retiree population.” She said Ashland’s central location between San Francisco and Portland is probably one of the attributes that attract retirees, as well as the Rogue Valley’s benchmark healthcare providers. “It sort of underscores why we are on the map,” Flanagan said, of Ashland’s addition to Where to Retire’s list, “but any press is good press.” Ashland City Council member Carol Voisin said Ashland’s economic diversity is one of the things the city prides itself on. “I don’t think we’re so gentrified in Ashland yet; I think that’s one thing the council wants to prevent,” she said. “We want a diverse population, and hopefully we can get that “... It’s certainly not a goal to make it appealing to retired folk.” Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions

Portland woman may have died from fumes PORTLAND — Portland firefighters say a 70-year-old woman has died, apparently from toxic smoke from oxygen tubing that was melted by a cigarette. Firefighters were called to the home at the Mobile Estates late Saturday night and found a man performing chest compressions on his wife, whose name was not released. Fire officials say the man arrived home to find his wife on the floor. Firefighters were unable to revive the woman and paramedics noted burns on her face and fingers. They found what appeared to be cigarette remains and melted oxygen tubing that she had been using for medical reasons.

Man who fell from boat presumed dead PORTLAND — Authorities say a St. Helens man is presumed drowned after a weekend fall from a boat into the Columbia River. KGW-TV reports 43-yearold John Sullivan fell into the water about 9:15 p.m. Saturday from the docked Christmas ship Trilogy. St. Helens police told KGW he hadn’t been located by Sunday afternoon. The Trilogy was taking part in a Christmas Ships parade and was moored at St. Helens Marina when Sullivan fell from the ship’s bridge. Christmas Ships Inc. spokesman Doug Romjue says recovery efforts began immediately and continued until about 11:45 p.m. Saturday. Efforts resumed Sunday morning to find the man but were unsuccessful. — From wire reports

Elmira High School improves with a focus on the basics The Associated Press ELMIRA — An emphasis on reading and writing, no matter the subject, is being credited with helped a Lane County high school improve its rank to “outstanding,” putting it among 62 Oregon high schools — of 281 total in the state — to hold that rating. The percentage of students meeting or exceeding state benchmarks in reading at Elmira High School went from 69.5 percent in the 2008-09 school year to 76 percent in 2009-10 and to 85 percent last year, the Eugene Register-Guard reports. School officials say that one of the helpful changes in the school was an effort to emphasize reading and writing on assignments and tests. They also say that making sure students try hard on the state tests has also helped. “It didn’t take long, really, to start changing the culture,” said Elmira’s dean of students, Steve Lewellen. For example, students who blew through the state tests too quickly, suggesting they hadn’t bothered reading the

questions but just randomly marked the multiple choice answers, got a sit-down visit with the principal, often with a parent on the phone at the same time. The school also began holding post-test assemblies — complete with snacks — to celebrate the students who passed. Teachers organized an after-school homework club to help struggling students, and a college bulletin board showing where seniors were headed after graduation was another way of publicly acknowledging successful students. It also helps that test results, beginning this year, will be a factor for graduating seniors. Previously, the state test results only influenced how schools are viewed both at the state and federal level. But this year’s seniors must pass reading tests in order to graduate. Next year, seniors will also have to pass writing and math tests, or go through an extra step of demonstrating proficiency in some other way in order to get a diploma.



E Retesting change benefits students



B  M C G B  J C  R  C

n recent years, students who passed Oregon’s state math, science or reading tests were often required to take them a second or even a third time.

In the 2009-10 school year, that kind of retesting affected more than 100,000 kids, according to a report in The Oregonian, including 28,000 who had reached scores in the top range. This year, new legislation will give parents of elementary and middle school students the chance to opt out, so their children who passed can skip retesting. The new rules came after critics convinced the Legislature that students who have met the standards would benefit more from additional lessons than from taking the test again. Teachers have often complained about too much time being spent on testing instead of on learning, so avoiding unnecessary tests seems positive. The change, however, could hurt schools on their report cards from the state. That’s because having more students who “exceed� rather than just “meet� standards improves a school’s ranking. If those who “meet� standards don’t retest, they won’t have that chance to raise their scores into the higher category. Dave VanLoo, assistant director of student assessment for BendLa Pine Schools, said a study in Portland found that 10 percent to

15 percent of students moved from “meet� to “exceed� when retested. He said the numbers might actually be higher, depending on how such a study is designed. Schools will also have to find staff time for parental notification, and devise staffing and lesson plans for students who will be in class while their classmates are retesting. VanLoo said the district has a big interest in having test numbers that reflect the students’ highest achievement, because those scores are used to reevaluate teaching methods. For the student, the positive side of retesting is less clear, but VanLoo said some highly motivated students simply want the chance to get their best possible score. And for students on the edge of qualifying for the Talented and Gifted program, even a slight improvement could be critical. For those students, parents will be able to make their own decisions. We support rigorous testing, but we agree retesting can be a waste of time for some students. These changes are a small but valuable shift to ensure the individual student’s interests, rather than the school’s, come first.

Schools take different approaches to scandal


t’s hard not to notice the difference in the way certain schools have handled scandal in recent days. At Great Neck North high school in New York, problems were met head-on. At Penn State, they apparently were swept under the rug. Students at several high schools on New York’s Long Island, including those at Great Neck North, had discovered they could choose from among several college-aged men, pay them to take SAT and ACT tests and improve their chances of getting into better colleges. The service, if it can be called that, went for as much as $3,600, though apparently the test takers were willing to reduce fees for those who could not afford the higher ones. The scheme began to unravel late last year, when a student at Great Neck North told a college counselor who, in turn, reported the matter to the school’s principal. The school checked into the claims and found them credible enough to call the Education Testing Service, which did handwriting analysis on suspect tests. Since then, at least two phony test takers have been charged with

felonies, while the students who hired them have been charged with misdemeanors. According to The New York Times, the district attorney in charge of the case has argued the charges are appropriate because, “If we can’t teach 16-, 17- and 18-year-olds that cheating is wrong, shame on us.� Contrast all this with Penn State, where one assistant coach saw another, Jerry Sandusky, allegedly sexually assaulting a youngster in the shower; the former reported what he’d seen to head coach Joe Paterno, who in turn reported to the school’s athletic director, and so on up the chain of command. The school’s response was to tell Sandusky he could no longer bring young boys to Penn State. No cops, no investigation, no nothing. The problems at Penn State say nothing good about the influence college sports can have on a university, where, presumably, those in charge should know better. At the same time, those kids on Long Island have, we presume, learned the lesson the district attorney wanted them to learn. We’ll take the latter any day.

Government is the problem, personal freedom is solution W By Jon Joseph hy shouldn’t the Occupy Wall Street folk protest? For close to 100 years, these folk have been lied to by warmongering spendthrifts. And at the same time, in less than 100 years, the sacrifices of the two prior centuries have been eradicated by socalled “progressive liberals.� How can we owe money to the Chinese? But for the sacrifice of Americans, all Chinese would be speaking Japanese. How can we owe money to the Russians? But for the sacrifice of Americans, the Russians would be speaking German. How can any human believe that simply being born in what is called the USA means that you are entitled to benefits from birth to grave? Our poorest citizens today live better than did kings and queens in the dark ages. This government that you expect to care for you is nothing but an excuse for failure. Why were our black brothers and sisters doomed to decades of apartheid? Look no further than this government that, after the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands in the Civil War, including my relatives, pulled out federal troops at least three decades too soon. Isn’t this a perfect example


of duplicity? Why, with this postwar abandonment, did we fight the war in the first place? Technology would have doomed slavery and we would have another 20 million Euro-Americans and 10 million more black citizens here today. How did my father and his compatriots conquer the world at a per capita loss less than that experienced by Alexander the Great and then allow half of the world to be delivered into Russian and communist domination? They did not fight and die so people can be paid twenty (phantom) dollars an hour. Peace is not profitable. Peace never aids the powerful. 99 percent suffer in the USA? Please! People who are willing to work and sacrifice are succeeding in this nation every day of the week. This government is a barrier to success. It has made failure easy by saying, “Don’t blame the playa, blame the game.� How many of the Occupy folk maxed out their opportunity at a free, public education? Did these people try to excel and earn a college scholarship, or did they find it easier to simply drop out and complain?

Our nation was built on the back of individual sacrifice. Expecting the “rich� to hand you money in light of the history of this world is beyond stupid. This is the world and no spiritual savant worth her or his salt has ever taught anything different. Want peace? Want the unborn to have a fair shake? Then it is time to vote Libertarian. Freedom I understand. Equality I do not understand. Why? Because humans, just as they did in Nazi Germany, have to define “equal.� And as we know, “All animals are equal but for pigs who are more equal.� It’s this government and its unctuous servants who are destroying America. End the tax on productivity and tax consumption. Ignore the fools who have promised you checks they cannot cash. Republicans and Democrats both are serial war-mongering liars. Vote for peace. Vote for the unborn. Vote Libertarian! And for God’s sake, suck it up and look to yourself and not to the idiots in D.C. and Salem who seem to care the most about you right about election time. — Jon Joseph lives in Bend.

Gingrich’s character flaws overshadow his good ideas


f all the major Republicans, the one who comes closest to my worldview is Newt Gingrich. Despite his erratically shifting views and odd phases, he continually returns to this core political refrain: He talks about using government in energetic but limited ways to increase growth, dynamism and social mobility. As he said in 2007, “It’s not a point of view Libertarians would embrace, but I am more in the Alexander HamiltonTeddy Roosevelt tradition of conservatism. I recognize that there are times when you need government to help spur private enterprise and economic development.� Look at U.S. history, Gingrich continued: “The government provided railroad land grants to encourage widespread adoption of what was then the most modern form of transportation to develop our country. The Homestead Act essentially gave away land to those willing to live on it and develop it. We used what were in effect public-private partnerships to bring telephone service and electricity

to every community in our nation. All of these are examples of government bringing about public purposes without creating massive taxpayer-funded bureaucracies.� This was not one of Gingrich’s passing fads. It is one of the most consistent themes of his career. His 1984 book, “Window of Opportunity,� is a broadside against what he calls the “laissezfaire� conservatism — the idea that government should just get out of the way so the market can flourish. As he wrote, “The opportunity society calls not for a laissez-faire society in which the economic world is a neutral jungle of purely random individual behavior, but for forceful government intervention on behalf of growth and opportunity.� Though his ideas stray, his most common theme is that government should intervene in crucial ways to create a dynamic, decentralized, lowtax society. So why am I not more excited by the Gingrich surge? In the first place, Gingrich loves

DAVID BROOKS government more than I do. He has no Hayekian modesty to restrain his faith in statist endeavor. For example, he has called for “a massive new program to build a permanent lunar colony to exploit the moon’s resources.� He has suggested that “a mirror system in space could provide the light equivalent of many full moons so that there would be no need for nighttime lighting of the highways.� I’m for national greatness conservatism, but this is a little too great. Furthermore, he has an unconservative faith in his own innocence. The crossroads where government meets enterprise can be an exciting crossroads. It can also be a corrupt crossroads. It requires moral rectitude to separate public service from private gain. Gingrich was perfectly content to belly up to the Freddie Mac trough and

then invent a Hamiltonian rationale to justify his own greed. Then there is his rhetorical style. He seems to have understood that a moderate Republican like himself can win so long as he adopts a bombastic style when taking on the liberal elites. Most important, there is temperament and character. As Yuval Levin noted in a post for National Review, the two Republican front-runners, Gingrich and Mitt Romney, are both “very wonky Rockefeller Republicans who moved to the right over time as their party moved right.� But they have very different temperaments. Romney, Levin observes, has an executive temperament — organization, discipline, calm and restraint. Gingrich has a revolutionary temperament — intensity, energy, disorganization and a tendency to see everything as a cataclysmic clash requiring a radical response. I’d make a slightly similar point more rudely. In the two main Republican contenders, we have one man, Romney, who seems to have walked

straight out of the 1950s, and another, Gingrich, who seems to have walked straight out of the 1960s. He has every negative character trait that conservatives associate with ’60s excess: narcissism, self-righteousness, self-indulgence and intemperance. He just has those traits in Republican form. As nearly everyone who has worked with him knows, he would severely damage conservatism and the Republican Party if nominated. He would severely damage the Hamilton-Theodore Roosevelt strain in American life. It’s really too bad. We could have had a great debate about the progressive-conservative tradition. President Barack Obama is now embracing Roosevelt. Gingrich has tried to modernize this tendency. But how you believe something is as important as what you believe. It doesn’t matter if a person shares your overall philosophy. If that person doesn’t have the right temperament and character, stay away. — David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times.

Robinson co-created Batman’s Joker, Robin By Geoff Boucher Los Angeles Times

Jerry Robinson, a pioneer in the early days of Batman comics and a key force in the creation of Robin the Boy Wonder, the Joker, Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred and Two-Face, has died in New York City. He was 89. The illustrator with a farranging career died Wednesday, according to Michael Uslan, a family friend and an executive producer of the Batman feature films since the 1980s. Born on New Year’s Day in 1922 in Trenton, N.J., Robinson was a still a teenager when he stepped into the fledgling comic book industry. He had met Bob Kane, who showed him the just-published issue of Detective Comics No. 27, which introduced a masked manhunter called Batman. Robinson, fresh out of high school and selling ice cream, was impressed with the offer of an art-table job in New York City. Just 17, he began inking over the pencil drawings of older artists but eventually moved up to the job of penciling. Working with Kane — who was a decade older — opened new frontiers, but Kane also took the credit when Batman became a sensation. After Robinson started working with Kane and Bill Finger on Batman in 1939, he came up with the name “Robin” for Batman’s sidekick, and he was the creator or key contributor to the first and formative appearances of the Joker, TwoFace and Alfred the butler. Neal Adams, the comic book artist who became a fan favorite in the 1960s and a champion for creator rights, said that young Robinson brought energy and intuitive understanding of his audience to the Batman comics. Nothing showed that more, Adams said, than the addition of Robin, the plucky daredevil sidekick who provided an entry point for every kid who spent their nickels on Detective Comics. Comic books were just one stop in Robinson’s long and eclectic career. There was his work as a curator with a specialty in art-as-activism, which led to two major exhibitions, the Ecotoon collection of environmental art at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 and the Human Rights collection of political commentary in Vienna in 1993. Robinson’s satirical eye led to two award-winning newspaper features, “Still Life” and “Life With Robinson,” syndicated throughout the 1960s and ’70s and part of a threedecade career of published political commentary. The New York Times once praised Robinson and his newsprint humor for “a commentary more humorous and his approach more timeless than that of most other political cartoonists.” Far from Gotham City, Robinson considered this to be the defining core of his career. Still, Robinson was proud of his years working in comics, and the success of the recent Batman films brought him back into the spotlight, but watching Batman, the Joker, Alfred and Two-Face break box-office records was bittersweet. “It was based on a playing card and the character had a lot of mystery to him early on,” Robinson said of the Joker. “We had no idea, of course, that we’d still be talking about him all these years later. When I think of the money from that movie — a billion dollars — I get a chill. ... We should have copyrighted what we had done. ...We were young and no one could have seen all of this. ... It was a new industry and we were pioneering a new mythology. We had no past so we had very few rules. We also didn’t expect any of it to last.”



Fort Lewis: Front line of cyberwar By Mike Francis The Oregonian

JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. — In the next war, one of the battlescapes is likely to include a brick building shaded by fir trees, not far from Interstate 5, north of Olympia. The two-story building, with office space downstairs and shared computer work spaces upstairs, is home to the Washington National Guard’s 262nd Network Warfare Squadron, a unit assigned to provide cyberdefense and unspecified forms of cyberoffense to guard critical U.S. infrastructure, starting with military computer networks. While its roughly 100 members are fully qualified

DeHate Continued from B1 She said the center must also continue to provide quality care to patients, and that is expensive in an area such as La Pine. “The nearest hospital is in Bend, and on a good day, the distance there by ambulance is at least 40 minutes,” DeHate said. “Because of that distance,

Fish bypass Continued from B1 Jensen now plans to request money from the federal government, which has for years spent billions trying to preserve the fish populations his system is designed to protect. Pacific Gas and Electric Company head biologist Don Ratliff has good things to say about Jensen’s invention, which differs from systems used in most dams that separate and route fish with a screen. Those systems can result in the injury and death of fish. “I think it is very unique and appears to work well to separate fish from the majority of water (that would flow into the turbine),” said Ratliff, who has helped Jensen test the system. Jensen believes the current system used at area dams — called the Eicher screen — injures fish by removing their protective barrier when they scrape against the screen while traveling through the fastmoving water, exposing them to predation. Jensen said 20 to 30 percent of fish die as a result of this, but a third of fish also die through inadequate

Pay-to-play Continued from B1 This fall, athletes requested $5,500 in scholarships. Hood credits the foundation’s fundraising for keeping many students active. “It’s taken a while for the recession to filter through. Many families have a lot of pride and tap into their savings before asking for help,” Hood said. “Now, we’re seeing the end of that, and it’s going to take a while for the families to catch up and be able to pay fees.” The scholarships affect teams across the district, including the 5A state champion Mountain View varsity football team. About one-third of the school’s football players — from freshman to varsity teams — were eligible for need-based scholarships, according to assistant coach Brian Crum. Without the scholarships, not only would the teams have been less successful, but some of those athletes would have been left to find something else to do, Crum said. “(Sports) are not extracurricular activities.

Air National Guard troops, they control keyboards and wield digital network expertise — not fighter jets, nor aerial drones. Many of them are drawn from the rich information technology culture of the Seattle area, home to Microsoft Corp., Amazon Inc. and a profusion of software and networking companies. In many ways, their jobs in uniform aren’t very different from their civilian jobs. This squadron of 100-plus Air National Guard airmen is the tentpole of an emerging, coordinated military capability of the Washington National Guard that also involves an intelligence squadron, several air support squadrons, an engineering squadron,

a combat communications group and other units. The airmen of these units could be called to deploy, as some have already done to the Middle East, or they could operate at a distance. “It makes us a very elegant solution for future warfighting requirements,” said Col. Brian Dravis, commander of the Washington Air National Guard’s 194th Regional Support Wing. It’s not glib to say that this capability is being assembled on the fly. While the 262nd has been assigned to cyberdefense since 2002, other squadrons have begun to convert to new assignments only over the last year. They are part of the Air Force’s growing emphasis on

we have to maintain X-ray and lab equipment here on the site. That costs a lot.” Another goal, she said, is recruiting physicians and nurse practitioners to La Pine. One recruiting opportunity, DeHate said, is the National Health Services Corps. The federal program allows primary care providers to pay off student loans while serving in communities with limited access to health care.

Another aspect of the program allows students pursuing careers in primary care to receive scholarships for serving communities in need upon graduation and completion of training. “Confidence in the clinic went down over the past two years,” she said. “We have to work on that.” At the beginning of December, she said, the center implemented an electronic records

system that will help maintain the quality assurance required by the government and make medical records more accessible. “The system will also allow specialists and other medical facilities instant access to patient records,” DeHate said. “This aspect will be very valuable to the snowbirds or people who are traveling.”

separation, which inadvertently funnels them with the water through the turbine. Jensen’s system separates them with hydraulics rather than an actual physical barrier, allowing fish to pass through dams free from injury. Ratliff said Jensen’s system works by creating “a pressure wave that bypasses the fish through a conduit while most of the water goes into a turbine.” The water passes to the turbine through a screen, but the pressure created by the wave keeps the fish far enough away from the screen to protect them. On that wave of pressure, fish travel into a secondary pipe which then funnels them to water below the dam.

why not.” But after much tweaking and fine-tuning, Jensen tested a large prototype of the system last year in Opal Springs using 20 small steelhead and the help of Ratliff and Opal Springs Hatchery Manager Gary Lytle. His tests were 100 percent successful, he said.

federal government. Jensen said his progress on the project was slowed when his 30-year aerial spraying business went down the tubes as a result of a prolonged legal dispute with the city regarding his business lease. The court sided with Jensen, but by the time the legal process was over, he said it was too late to salvage his business, which generated between $250,000 to $300,000 a year. Now Jensen’s business, Precision Applications, mostly revolves around engineering designs he continues to produce. Though currently in a government bureaucracy waiting game, Jensen said he is optimistic that this system — as well as others in the works — will receive the patent and garner large commercial markets. “The government has spent about $10 billion trying to save salmon runs in the Columbia River system and haven’t been real successful. I hope that more involvement by citizens can improve that track record. I think we will see more and more of these small installations as we go forward trying to generate more power in an environmentally sound way,” Jensen said.

Some complications Though Jensen said he has run into some complications, the idea behind the project — which he began about seven years ago — is simple. “Everything that happens in the system is in accordance with the laws of physics. That’s the bottom line, which means it will work on any size model,” said Jensen. “Initially I thought, ‘Why didn’t somebody do this already?’ Then I ran into one problem after another and another,” Jensen said. “Now I see

They’re co-curricular activities, and they go hand-in-hand with being a student and an athlete and an artist,” said Crum, who also teaches social studies at Mountain View. “If kids missed out on that, I could see tragic results down the line.” Just as scholarship needs have been on the rise, so has the percentage of district students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch — the status that makes Bend-La Pine athletes eligible for scholarships. In 2008-09, almost 41 percent of district students were eligible, and that number was more than 47 percent last year.

Fundraising is up The foundation is falling further and further behind the need despite raising more money over the last few years. In 2008-09, the foundation spent about $16,000 and covered all scholarship requests. According to foundation projections, there will be about $65,000 in requests this year and about $40,000 for scholarships. Middle school sports fees are $40, while high school fees are $100 per sport. There is a $300 annual limit per high school family. “I just worry tremendously about this. ... We’re such a

County is short on funds Jensen approached the county for additional funds for the project last month, but the county refused, citing its limited funds for investment projects. Commissioners said the county has set aside an economic fund to invest in companies and entrepreneurial projects for more than 20 years. The fund started out at $200,000 but has since grown to about $850,000, though only $250,000 of that is liquid. “Our primary goal is to help him get his patents,” said Commissioner Mike Ahern. “But we have very limited economic funds and we’re as deep as we can go at this point.” Jensen said fees from the patent process alone have cost up to $10,000, and he expects he will have to put in at least $150,000 more than the $75,000 already invested to get the project approved by the

sporting community, and I want to see all our kids be able to participate,” said Cheri Helt, who is a school board member and active with the foundation. “Sports helps so many things. ... Kids are engaged in such a positive activity.”

Policy ensures participation District policy ensures that no student will be kept from playing fields for an inability to pay, so the foundation is not the only backstop for families who cannot afford sports fees. Still, Helt worries how long the district can afford that policy. The district and others around the state have made at least three years of budgetrelated cuts, cutting teaching positions and school days and shifting class schedules. “I don’t know where we continue to cut and how long we can continue to make sure (sports participation) continues to happen,” said Helt, who described herself as “anguished” over the scholarship shortfall. Districts commonly charge pay-to-play fees to help fund athletics and other activities. In the Redmond School District, for instance, a high school activity fee is $150, with a $300 family limit.

preparing to fight a non-traditional war that doesn’t necessarily depend on heavy equipment, such as jet aircraft. The definition of cyberattacks is broader than it might appear. Cyberattacks aren’t only probes and hacks that exploit network vulnerabilities, although there are millions of such attacks on military and civilian networks daily. “It’s how to fight the next war,” said Col. Steve Hilsdon, who commands the Washington National Guard’s 252nd Combat Communications Group, which includes the 262nd. When America is threatened by an attack from foreign aircraft, he suggested, what “if the plane can never take off?”

The middle school fee is $75, though the district offers sliding scales for families in need at both levels. As in Bend-La Pine, an increasing percentage of Redmond students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. In 2008-09, about 44 percent of students were eligible, and that number had risen to nearly 66 percent by last year. Redmond is reviewing its fees and could start next year with a new system, according to the district’s athletic director, Brent Walsh. District staff members are reviewing how much each sports season costs, and fees will likely be lower for the cheaper sports. The upper limit will remain about the same, Walsh said. Most families, Walsh predicted, will pay less with the new fees than they did this year. “We need to do everything we can to help those families out and make sure they’re doing OK,” he said. — Reporter: 541-633-2161,

Research uncovers empathy in rats

Scientists searching for silicon’s successor By John Markoff New York Times News Service

STANFORD, Calif. — In a cluttered chip-making laboratory on Stanford’s campus, Max Shulaker is producing the world’s smallest computer circuits by hand. Shulaker, a graduate student in electrical engineering, is helping to pioneer an extraordinary custom manufacturing process: making prototypes of a new kind of semiconductor circuit that may one day be the basis for TECH the world’s fastest supercomputers — not to mention the smallest and lowest-powered consumer gadgets. If the new technology proves workable, it will avert a crisis that threatens to halt more than five decades of progress by chip-makers, who now routinely etch circuits smaller than a wavelength of light to make ever more powerful computers. Even lightwaves, it turns out, have their limits. In an industry renowned for inventions both radical and resourceful, designers are in urgent need of new ways to make circuits smaller, faster and cheaper. This year Intel, the world’s largest chip-maker, introduced a 3-D transistor that pushes a thin pillar out of the plane of the silicon surface, in an effort to accommodate billions of tiny switches on a single microprocessor. That approach is controversial; the challenge is not just to squeeze in more switches but to get them to turn on and off quickly and cleanly, and many people in the industry believe there are less drastic ways to do that. And whichever approach proves most effective, there is a growing consensus among engineers and industry executives that silicon’s days are numbered. On the horizon is an even smaller manufacturing world, nanoelectronics, that will be characterized by the ability to build circuits on a molecular scale.

The next generation So at universities and corporate laboratories around the world, researchers are trying to develop the next generation of chip-making technologies. Shulaker is a member of the Robust Systems Group at Stanford, led by Subhasish Mitra, a former Intel engineer. The new switch he and other student researchers are making is called a carbon nanotube field effect transistor, or CNFET. To make prototype switches, Shulaker first chemically grows billions of carbon nanotubes — each only about 12 atoms wide — on a quartz surface. He coats them with an ultrafine layer of gold, and then uses a piece of tape — much like a lint remover — to pick them up by hand and transfer them gently to a silicon wafer. The difference is that for the first time circuits are not etched with light waves; rather, they are at least partly “self-assembling.” The ultrafine wires made from carbon nanotubes are being laid down using a chemical process as the first step in making a computer circuit. What results are nanocircuits that are far smaller and use far less power than today’s most advanced silicon-based computer circuits. The idea of scaling down electronic circuits goes back at least to 1960, when a young electrical engineer named Douglas Engelbart spoke at a radio and electronics technical conference in Philadelphia.

BIOMASS • Proposed rules for boilers could influence future projects in Central Oregon By Jordan Novet • The Bulletin New proposed federal regulations on boilers and incinerators announced earlier this month probably will not impact the boilers at biomass plants running now in Central Oregon. Future biomass projects in the region, however, could face federal limits and standards if the regulations go into effect. To enforce the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rolled out draft rules last year for all kinds of boilers, which burn fuel such as coal, natural gas and woody biomass, prompting concerns that it could hamper the growth of the biomass GREEN industry. The agency received more than 4,800 comments from the public, trade associations, companies, environmental groups and other organizations. On Dec. 2, the EPA released more targeted rules. The new proposed regulations, the EPA said, intend to simultaneously make standards more flexible and maintain “public health protections.” Rule changes include tailoring emission limits for different types of boilers and allowing greater emissions of certain chemicals, such as

Submitting a comment The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will accept comments on new proposed rules on boilers and incinerators, via fax at 202566-9744, by email to, over the Web at or by mail to Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center, Environmental Protection Agency, Mail Code 2822T, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20460.

hydrogen chloride and sulfur dioxide, and less of others. For boilers at schools, hospitals and other facilities that generate lower toxic emissions, the agency proposes less frequent tuneups after the initial one — every five years, as opposed to every other year.

The new proposed rules could loom large in decisions to build new plants in Central Oregon. “These projects are pretty economically marginal,” said Phil Chang, program administrator at the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council. “By jacking up this cost or that cost (to make emissions cleaner), you run the risk of killing the projects. It’s kind of the death of a thousand cuts.” Plants operating in the region now don’t seem to be affected by the proposed regulations, Chang said. The real question is how the rules would affect the construction of new biomass plants. Prineville-based Ochoco Lumber Co. fired up a biomass plant to make wood pellets at its sawmill in John Day in December 2010. Bruce Daucsavage, the company’s CEO, said the proposed rules do not affect the new facility. See Boilers / C6

CHICAGO — As charges of greed and self-interest fly in these hyper-partisan political times, humans might do well to look to rats for lessons in kindness and caring. A University of Chicago experiment to determine how much empathy rats have for each other had some surprising results, which were published SCIENCE Friday in the research journal Science. In laboratory studies, a rat was restrained in a small cage that could be opened only from the outside. A second rat, seeing the predicament of the trapped rat, immediately began tirelessly trying to find a way to free his fellow rat. Eventually, the second rat taught itself to open the cage door, freeing the restrained rat, leading to what strongly resembled a triumphal celebration between the two. Even when faced with an alternative choice of chocolate chips, the free rat would not be deterred from helping its caged fellow rat. As simple as it sounds, the experiment is being hailed as a new paradigm that will help scientists trace the development of emotion in mammals back through the evolutionary tree. Previously, scientists thought that empathy and pro-social behavior to help others were unique to humans, said Jeffrey Mogil, a researcher at McGill University in Canada who has done similar studies on mice. “This study shows the roots of human empathy didn’t just appear but evolved,” said Mogil, who was not connected with the University of Chicago study. “It is very impressive, showing really robust and conclusive evidence that rats show pro-social (helping) behavior. You can argue why the rats are doing it, but you can’t argue anymore that the rats are doing it.”

Higher forms of empathy The experiment is the work of University of Chicago doctoral student Inbal BenAmi Bartal; her adviser, Jean Decety, a professor of psychology and psychiatry who studies human empathy; and Peggy Mason, a neurobiology professor who studies pain modulation and relief. Decety said it has been proved in past studies that rats also experience a primitive form of empathy called emotional contagion — the sort of thing where if one baby in a group of babies begins to cry, they all break out in tears. “Ben-Ami came to my lab to do her Ph.D. with an idea of using an animal model to study higher forms of empathy,” said Decety, who enlisted Mason for a study that wound up taking three years. The team first paired rats of the same gender for three weeks. See Rats / C6

A  & A  

Woman is ready to end a friendship of 15 years Dear Abby: I am a gay woman. My partner, “Jenny,� and I have been friends with another couple for 15 years. Over the last year I have come to realize that I no longer want to be friends with them. One of them has been particularly unkind to me, and frankly, we don’t have a lot in common. Jenny is uncomfortable with my decision and wants me to talk to them to discuss my feelings. They have already asked her if there’s a problem. If I talk to them, I’m sure they will be offended by what I have to say because I didn’t say anything when the issues first arose. I’m not good at confrontation, and it’s hard for me to tell someone my feelings are hurt. The bottom line is, I want out of this couple’s friendship. But I need to do it in a way that’s OK with Jen. I met the couple through her, and she wants to continue her friendship with them. Please help. — Moving On in Georgia Dear Moving On: It would not be confrontational to tell them that while you have known each other for a long time, you feel you have grown apart. You should also mention that your feelings were hurt when one of them said “( ).� At least that way they will understand why you have disappeared, and Jenny won’t be left with the responsibility of explaining it to them. Dear Abby: My fiance and I recently received a wedding invitation from a friend of his from high school. Our wedding is not far away, and I have an etiquette question. Although it wasn’t stated on the invitation where the bride and groom were registered, a Facebook message was sent after our invitation arrived in the mail. It said, “In lieu of gifts, people can donate monetarily to the couple� — by check or cash the day of the wedding, or via a Paypal account they have set up. I’m confused. I grew up (and still live in) the South, and this

DEAR ABBY doesn’t seem like a traditional approach to gift-giving. Isn’t it considered inappropriate to ask for money? — Mystified in Alabama Dear Mystified: Yes, it is. To solicit money the way that couple did is crude. An acceptable way to get the word out about the type of gifts couples prefer is by word of mouth. Guests usually ask if a couple is registered and where, and when the question is raised, it’s all right to tell them. If you have created a wedding website, the information can be included on it; however, it shouldn’t be so blatant that it appears gifts are uppermost in your mind. When couples prefer a gift of money, the proper way the information should be conveyed is verbally by your family or friends, but not by you. Dear Abby: I love the holiday season, but I often feel the blues and get a little depressed. I lost my father on Christmas Day several years ago and have since lost a brother to cancer. I’m tired of feeling this way when this is the season to be merry. What can I do? — Another Blue Christmas in South Carolina Dear Blue: I am sorry for your losses. Because of your father’s death on Christmas Day, it may always bring some sense of loss. However, an effective way to distract yourself would be to spend time in the company of friends who understand your feelings. Another would be to volunteer at a senior center, shelter or food distribution program. Helping someone else through a difficult time is the surest cure for the blues. Please give it a try. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Monday, Dec. 12, 2011 By JACQUELINE BIGAR This year you mix energy and caring in a way that makes others feel nurtured. The balance in your relationships could change as you transform into a much more expressive person. Your popularity soars. Your ability to communicate will expand as you grasp new styles of verbalizing or getting your point across. You feel evolved and more effective. If you are single, you could have a wonderful time dating, and might meet someone who hangs in there with you. If you are attached, you will naturally want to do the right thing to help your sweetie see the new you. VIRGO encourages a quietness within you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You are direct about what must be done, no matter what your immediate circle’s concerns are. Once a situation mellows out, you seem to be ready to lie back. Use care when shopping. Tonight: Happily head home. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Reach out for someone at a distance. You might be confused about a situation. Be proactive in order to gain clarity. Extremes seem natural, and not necessarily bad. The holiday season is taking its toll on others. Tonight: Chatting up a storm. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH There is a tendency to go to extremes — whether it is with spending or an emotional situation. Honor a change and examine what is happening with someone at a distance. You will tend to go overboard with spending and caring. Tonight: Your treat. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH You are full of energy. If you don’t get a call or someone doesn’t behave as you think he or she should, don’t stand on ceremony. Pick up the phone. Know what you want. You might want to indulge a friend or your sweetie. Tonight: Out. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Note what is going on behind the scenes. You also could decide to observe rather than participate. Others could be overly sensitive — you might be as well. Listen to your inner dialogue. If it is a repeat inner talk, you might want to really delve

into the issue. Tonight: Either alone or with someone you trust. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Your interest unites with others to make a goal more plausible. Just finding like-minded people seems like a reason for celebration. Walk toward a new opportunity. Tonight: Surround yourself with people. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Take a stand if need be. You have a way of knowing the exact words to say to make the right impression. Don’t sell yourself short. Investigate an offer that might be too good to be true. Some of you might feel manipulated. Tonight: A force to behold. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Reach out for an adviser or someone you respect. The feedback you get could be more important than you think. Be willing to demonstrate more of what others see that is so special in you. Tonight: Choose something different. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH A partner has an interest in working with you. At first you might try to avoid this connection. Once you decide to listen and brainstorm together, you could discover how much you like the interaction. Tonight: Continue the theme over dinner. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Others might act as if they know it all. Who are you to tell them otherwise? Know when you are better off heading in another direction. You might be surprised by how fast someone taps on your shoulder. Tonight: Go along with another person’s ideas. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Stay on topic in your head, as well as with others. You easily could be triggered by others. Follow-through counts, or else a close associate could push. Avoid an argument at all costs. Rather than criticize, praise. Tonight: Make it easy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Tap into your ingenuity in order to make what appears to be a boulder in your path but a mere pebble. Someone could be wildly hostile, and you can talk this person down. Remember that ultimately much more is gained by positive feelings. Tonight: Ever playful. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Rats Continued from C1 Then they placed one of the pair in a small, Plexiglas restraint cage, locked by a door that could only be opened from the outside. The cage was placed in a larger enclosure where the rat’s partner roamed free. By means the researchers aren’t sure of, the caged rat seemed to communicate its distress to the freed rat, and the freed rat sprang into action.

“The free rat jumps on the restraining cage immediately, pushing it, biting at it, touching its nose and whiskers through the openings in the restraining cage with those of the trapped rat,” Mason said. “Clearly it wants to help out the trapped rat.” After about six days, the free rat would accidentally open the door and from then on quickly learned how to deliberately open it, and then excitedly interact with its now-free partner as they raced around the enclosure.

“I can’t say that they are celebrating,” said Mason. “But sure looks like a celebration.” Because rats love chocolate, in some experiments the scientists placed two restraint cages in an enclosure with a rat that already knew how to open the cage door. One cage contained a rat, the other five chocolate chips. “We wanted to ask how much the free rat valued being able to liberate the caged rat,” Mason said. “They like their chocolate chips, but the free rat would open both cag-

es in no particular order. “The free (rat) could have done all manner of things to monopolize the chocolate chips, but on average it always left one and a half chocolate chips for the liberated rat. That’s impressive — a hard thing for primates to do — showing it puts equal value on chocolate and freeing its partner.” Eventually rats that did not know each other were used, and the free rat still worked hard to liberate the stranger from the cage.

to all of them at the same time. So some of the transistors are left unpowered — dark, in industry parlance. The new limits are particularly daunting for supercomputer designers, who are looking to build an “exascale” system — 1,000 times the speed of today’s fastest computers — by 2019. Using today’s components, that would require 10 million to 100 million processors — compared with almost one million today — and would consume more than a billion watts. At the annual supercomputing conference in Seattle last month, Jen-Hsun Huang, chief executive of Nvidia, a maker of graphics accelerator chips used in game machines and computers, warned that while supercomputing performance had improved one million times in the last two decades, the power needed to run a computer had increased just 40 times.

carbon nanotube technology “still has its catches.” Other technologies, too, may be contenders in the nanoelectronics sweepstakes. Researchers at HP Labs have said they are close to commercializing a new semiconductor technology based on a circuit element called a “memristor,” which can substitute for transistors, initially in a memory chip that might offer an alternative to both Flash and DRAM memories. The researchers previously reported in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that they had devised a new method for storing and retrieving information from a vast three-dimensional array of memristors. The scheme could potentially free designers to stack thousands of switches in a high-rise fashion, permitting a new class of ultradense computing devices even after two-dimensional scaling reaches fundamental limits. In a recent lecture at Stanford, Stan Williams, a physicist who is leading the effort at HP, said the group was focusing on a new type of semiconducting material, titanium dioxide, which he said could rival silicon. “Suffice it to say this is not in the deep dark future,” he said. “This is not 10 years out.”

Continued from C1 Engelbart had hit on the idea that shrinking the basic circuitry of the first digital computers could lead to a drastic increase in power. “Boy, are there going to be some surprises over there,” he told his audience. It turned out to be an understatement. A half decade later, Gordon Moore, then a chemist at Fairchild Semiconductor, formalized the ability of a new technique called photolithography to scale down components, saying it could be done at regular intervals and predicting that it would be exponential — doubling the number of transistors that could be put on a microchip every year. Moore’s Law, as it came to be called, was only a little optimistic: The doubling has taken place every 18 months or so for nearly five decades. Today several billion transistors can fit on a single chip, and the resulting era of microelectronics has transformed the world, touching virtually every aspect of human existence — from African subsistence farmers who can now get market prices via text message to supercomputers that can simulate

Approaching limits But with each new generation of technology, the obstacles have grown more imposing, and the cost of surmounting them is going up, not down. For example, the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, one of the world’s largest chip-makers, expects to spend almost $10 billion on its next factory. Moreover, as standard CMOS computer circuits pack more and more transistors, they tend to leak electricity — and thus generate excess heat. The warning signs began a decade ago, when Patrick Gelsinger, then Intel’s chief technology officer, warned that if the trends continued, microprocessor chips would reach the temperature of the sun’s surface by 2011. To prevent that, the company executed what it called a “hard right turn,” gaining speed by adding parallel computing capabilities rather than increasing the chips’ clock speeds. Even that approach has its limits, however. This year, researchers at the University of Washington and Microsoft warned of what they called “dark silicon.” With so many processors on a single chip, it is impractical to supply power

Computing contenders Here at Stanford, Mitra says a system based on carbon nanotubes may greatly outperform Intel’s current 3-D transistor technology. Indeed, it might be possible to stack multiple layers of these carbon switches, creating genuine three-dimensional circuits. But he acknowledges that

Boilers Continued from C1 “We were very concerned when we first received the (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) grant to build this facility that the left hand wasn’t exactly sure what the right hand was doing in the federal government, and they encouraged us to use biomass to create energy … and then say, ‘Well, I encourage you to do that but, sorry, you can’t do it,’” Daucsavage said. “I don’t think it was meant to go in that direction originally,” he continued. “It just got caught up in the fray. So it appears, with the input from our governor and certainly our legislators and the help of a lot of Western governors and congressmen, they were able to exclude what we were doing.” Daucsavage said the new standards are intended to limit emissions from “the bad boys,” including companies using coal-burning boilers. According to EPA projections, every dollar spent to meet the proposed standards would yield between $12 and $30 in health benefits for Americans. The Sisters School District began operating a biomass plant with a boiler at Sisters High School in October to generate heat. The boiler uses wood pellets from Redmond-based Pacific Pellet. Leland Bliss, the school district’s director of operations, said the plant shouldn’t have to respond to proposed emission limits, because the boiler’s heat capacity does not exceed 10 million British thermal units, or BTU, per hour. Still, Bliss said, the plant can change its heat capacity to comply with the rules. “The induction fan on this thing is adaptable, … so we can meet the guidelines,” he said. Bliss said the rules are meant to tamp down emissions at larger facilities. “They’re burning cord wood or huge amounts of … fuel and chips, that kind of thing,”

he said. “This thing, … it’s the cleanest-burning thing you’ve ever seen.” The new Deschutes National Forest headquarters on Deschutes Market Road in northeast Bend is the home of a new biomass plant with a boiler. Forest spokeswoman Jean Nelson-Dean said she didn’t think the new proposed rules would put limits on the boiler. “Our boiler here just burns wood pellets that we get from a local manufacturer, taking wood directly off of our local forests,” Nelson-Dean said. Biogreen Sustainable Energy Co. in St. Helens has proposed building a biomass plant in La Pine that would include a boiler, but the project has hit snags. The company did not respond to a request for comment. Mt. Bachelor ski area has considered building a biomass plant, said spokesman Andy Goggins. The U.S. Forest Service is reviewing the idea, which is part of the mountain’s current master development plan, Goggins said. A biomass plant at Mt. Bachelor would provide an outlet for slash and material generated by thinning and other forest management efforts, he said, and “it’d be a low cost and environmentally ideal source of generating electricity and heat for the ski area’s operations.” The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs has been considering a proposal from a company in Bellingham, Wash., to build a new biomass plant, said Jim Manion, general manager of Warm Springs Power and Water Enterprises. Employees from the company, Northwest Energy Systems, have assured tribal officials that the plant would meet emission requirements, Manion said. Chang said the capacity of those proposed biomass plants and others — in Lakeview and Klamath Falls, for example — will determine how EPA rules will govern emissions and standards.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Paterno falls, fractures pelvis STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Joe Paterno fractured his pelvis again following a fall at his home but will not need surgery, a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Sunday. The former Penn State football coach was expected to make a full recovery after slipping Saturday and was admitted to the hospital the next day, the person added. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. Paterno, who turns 85 on Dec. 21, is also undergoing radiation and chemotherapy for what his family has said is a treatable form of lung cancer. Son Scott Paterno has said doctors are optimistic about a full recovery from the illness. Paterno initially hurt his pelvis in August after he was blindsided on the field during preseason practice. It was determined Paterno should remain in the hospital now to facilitate his regimen of cancer treatments while recovering from the pelvis injury, the AP was told. The person declined to identify the hospital to maintain the family’s privacy. An operator at the hospital in State College, Mount Nittany Medical Center, said Sunday there was no patient listing for Paterno. Paterno was fired last month in the aftermath of child sex-abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who maintains his innocence. Paterno is not a target of the investigation.

Big race fills the ’cross void • Deschutes Brewery Cup brings some of the best cyclocross riders back to Bend

t is two weeks into December, and fall athletics have finally given up center stage to winter sports here in Central Oregon. Mountain View football, Summit boys crosscountry and Summit volleyball all claimed their first state titles over the past six weeks, while the Storm’s girls cross-country team and Crook County’s volleyball squad cemented their dynasty status with their fourth and sixth consecutive state championships, respectively. It’s a tough act to follow, but the area’s winter sports teams have their own storylines that should be just as compelling to follow. In girls basketball, if you haven’t had a chance yet to watch Madras senior guard Abby Scott, find a way to get to a White Buffalo basketball game this season. Scott, who last month signed to play at New Mexico State next season, is a legitimate 6-foot-1-inch perimeter player who can play every position on the floor. With a supporting cast that includes outside shooter Rosey Suppah and point guard Mariah Stacona, the White Buffaloes are among the favorites to win this season’s Class 4A state title. The Madras High gym is an exciting environment in which to watch prep basketball, so even if you’re not a local, consider making the trip there to see a game. It’s well worth the drive. Boys hoops should be just as fun to watch this winter. It may be tough to envision now with several key contributors still limping a bit from football, but Mountain View has as good a shot as anyone to make a run at the 5A title. Defending state champion Corvallis, with all-state forward Jake Ehlers — who has signed with the University of Portland — is probably the favorite, but 5A is more open this season than in past years when Jefferson and North Eugene were dominant programs in that classification.

fter two years of hosting national cyclocross championship events, the Deschutes Brewery Cup filled a void in the Bend cycling scene. The Deschutes Brewery Cup, staged Saturday and Sunday in Bend’s Old Mill District, was the final stop of 2011 for the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross. The USGP is an eight-race domestic series that began in Wisconsin in late September, and it brought high-level cyclocross racing to Central Oregon once again. “It’s gone smooth,” race director Brad Ross said of the Gran Prix’s first time in Bend in series history. Prior to this year, the U.S. Gran Prix had always made an appearance in Portland. This weekend’s participants were treated to a championship course, as the Old Mill District was also the location of the 2009 and 2010 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships. “This is such a great venue, and we had such good national championship (events the) last two years, that it was kind of a sin to not use this thing for some high-profile event,” Ross said.

The coach who is most credentialed in her sport to speak her mind and was never shy about expressing herself no longer addresses the news media after a game. Such is the new abnormal for Pat Summitt and her famous Tennessee women’s basketball team. Orange-clad loyalists still follow Summitt and company out of Knoxville wherever they go. Clusters made up a large portion of the crowd at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, when the Lady Vols posted a routine 84-61 victory over DePaul in the second game of the annual Maggie Dixon Classic doubleheader.

S   B Golf • Alvaro wins Dubai World Championship: Alvaro Quiros holed an eagle putt on the 18th hole to clinch a two-shot win over 1999 British Open champion Paul Lawrie at the Dubai World Championship on Sunday in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Quiros finished with a 19-under total of 269 at the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. The Spaniard was tied with Lawrie for much of the day and fell a shot behind heading into the back nine. But Lawrie bogeyed the 12th and Quiros then birdied the 14th to take the lead for good. He clinched the win with a 40-foot eagle putt on the 18th. Luke Donald, who became the first player to win the American and European money titles Sunday, was third at 16 under. Donald’s only rival, U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy, needed to win the tournament but finished at 9 under in a tie for 11th. • Bradley, Steele win Franklin Templeton Shootout: PGA Champion Keegan Bradley and Brendan Steele shot a 13-under 59 in scramble play Sunday in Naples, Fla., to become the first PGA Tour rookies to win the Franklin Templeton Shootout. Bradley and Steele took control with an eagle by Steele on No. 14 and a birdie on No. 15, finishing at 32-under 184 for a threestroke victory over two teams.

Soccer • North Carolina wins men’s soccer title: Ben Speas lofted a 25-yard shot over goalkeeper Klay Davis midway through the second half to give North Carolina a 1-0 victory over Charlotte in the NCAA championship in Hoover, Ala. The Tar Heels (22-22) earned their first men’s soccer title in 10 years.

Basketball • Cincy suspends Gates for 6 games after brawl: Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates got a sixgame suspension on Sunday for throwing punches during a brawl with No. 8 Xavier in the closing minute of their annual crosstown rivalry game. Gates punched Xavier’s Kenny Frease in the face, causing a nasty gash below his left eye, and hit at least one other Musketeer during the fracas on Saturday, which prompted the referees to call Xavier’s 76-53 win with 9.4 seconds left. The Bearcats also gave Cheikh Mbodj and Octavius Ellis six-game suspensions. Ge’Lawn Guyn was suspended for one game. Xavier suspended point guard Tu Holloway for one game, guard Mark Lyons for two games, and Dez Wells and Landen Amos for four games each. • David West says he has deal with Pacers: David West is headed north to Indiana, where he will join forces with Danny Granger and former Hornets teammate Darren Collison. West agreed to a two-year deal with the Pacers on Sunday that his agent, Lance Young, said was worth $20 million. The Pacers have not yet announced the freeagent signing, but West said he planned to be in Indianapolis today. West, a two-time All-Star who was drafted 18th overall by

New Orleans in 2003, started 70 games for the Hornets last season, averaging 18.9 points and 7.6 rebounds before tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a victory at Utah on March 24. • Kobe is upset about Odom’s looming departure: Even Kobe Bryant can’t figure out why the Los Angeles Lakers apparently are trading Lamar Odom to one of their biggest rivals. “To be honest with you, I don’t like it,” Bryant said Sunday when the Lakers showed up for their third day of training camp knowing their top reserve probably will be shipped to the Dallas Mavericks for nothing but a trade exception. “It’s tough to lose Lamar,” Bryant added. “Pau (Gasol) is still here, and we’re all thankful for that. It’s hard when you’ve been through so many battles with players to just see them go somewhere else. It’s tough.” Neither team formally announced a trade early Sunday.

Winter sports • Randall, Petukhov win cross-country skiing sprints: Kikkan Randall of the United States won her second straight freestyle sprint in cross-country skiing’s World Cup on Sunday in Davos, Switzerland, and Russia’s Alexey Petukhov won the men’s race. Randall got her fifth career World Cup victory by completing the 1.5-kilometer course in 3 minutes, 2.4 seconds. Natalia Matveeva of Russia trailed Randall by 1.7 seconds. Norway’s Maiken Caspersen Falla was third. Randall, who won last weekend in Duesseldorf, Germany, climbed to third in the overall standings. • Hamelin takes gold for Canada in Shanghai: Canada’s Charles Hamelin won the 500 meters at the World Cup shorttrack speedskating event on Sunday, while Kwak Yoon-gy of South Korea won the 1,000 in Shanghai. Hamelin claimed his fourth gold medal this season after clocking 40.905 seconds to beat Britain’s Jon Eley (41.054) and Liang Wenhoa of China. Kwak finished in 1:25.300 in the 1,000 to beat Canada’s Olivier Jean (1:25.451) and Noh Jinkyu of South Korea. China took the relay gold ahead of Canada and Britain after South Korea was penalized and eliminated.

Football • Goodell hoping for resolution on HGH testing: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he’s hoping a human growth hormone testing program can be implemented “sooner rather than later.” Goodell spoke with reporters after hosting a fan forum at Ford Field before Sunday’s game in Detroit between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. The latest collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and union includes a provision to begin testing players for HGH — but it’s contingent on the union agreeing to the testing methods. The NFL Players Association has asked for more scientific data to prove the most popular test is reliable. — The Associated Press

Chicago rallies for win over San Jose The Associated Press CHICAGO — Patrick Sharp is working overtime on an impressive goal-scoring roll. Sharp steered in a loose puck off a rebound at 4:26 of overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday night. Antti Niemi stopped Marian Hossa’s shot from the top of the right circle, but kicked the puck toward the goal line. Sharp swooped in to bury the rebound for his 16th goal of the season, and second overtime winner in the Blackhawks’ last two games. Sharp, who also connected in the extra period Thursday night in Chicago’s 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders, has six goals in his last six games and nine in his last eight. “We stole it in overtime,” Sharp said. “It wasn’t the prettiest game, but it’s what we’ll have to do down the stretch the rest of the way — win games like that, find a way to win the ugly ones.” Sharp, who helped Chicago improve to 4-0-1 in its last five, was dizzy from an eventful week. His wife, Abby, gave birth to the couple’s first child, Madelyn Grace, on Friday. “It was a pretty emotional goal,” Sharp said. “It was tough to focus on hockey with so much going on back home. We have a great locker room. It’s pretty easy to turn things off when you come to the rink, but I was space cadet the whole game.” Also on Sunday: Rangers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6 Panthers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1 NEW YORK — Derek Stepan scored twice, including a pretty coast-to-coast goal just after the Rangers killed a penalty, and New York beat Florida. Stepan also assisted on Marian Gaborik’s goal late in the second period that made it 5-1 and seemed to take what spring remained out of the Panthers. New York looked nothing like a team playing for the second night in a row, putting away the Panthers for their fourth win in six games.

Texans earn first playoff berth The Associated Press CINCINNATI — Eighty yards to cover, little more than 2 minutes left, no timeouts to help. Rookie quarterback T.J. Yates faced his biggest challenge as he lined up for the snap. With savvy and a scramble, he pulled it off. Yates led the biggest drive in Texans history on Sunday, one that put them in the end zone and the playoffs. He threw a 6-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left for a 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that sent the expansion team into the playoffs for the first time. “It’s pretty crazy,” Yates said. “A lot of people in this organization have waited a long time for this. This is a special day for this team and this organization.” In the span of a few wild minutes, everything broke their way. With their seventh straight win, the Texans (10-3) moved to the threshold of the playoffs. They hugged on the field then headed to the locker room, where they huddled around a television set and watched the final minutes of Tennessee’s game play out. They needed a Titans loss to clinch the AFC South. When time ran out on the Titans, preserving New Orleans’ 22-17 victory, the Texans screamed, hugged, and donned black championship caps and white T-shirts. Injured receiver Andre Johnson, who didn’t play because of a strained hamstring, got a game ball for his part in turning the team into a winner. “Words really can’t describe it,” Johnson said. “It’s something I’ve been waiting for for a long time.” Since their inaugural season in 2002, the Texans have been little more than a tease. They’d come close to reaching the playoffs, only to fade and fumble in the big games. They couldn’t quite get that breakthrough win. An unlikely rookie took them the last step. Yates, a fifth-round draft pick, got his chance when Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart suffered season-ending injuries in consecutive weeks. Making only his second start, Yates led the Texans on their biggest comeback of the season. With everything on the line for both teams, the Bengals (7-6) couldn’t stop him. “A rookie quarterback beat us today,” safety Chris Crocker said. “He did it with both his arm and his feet. I don’t even know what to say. Wow.” Wow, indeed. Yates scrambled 17 yards on third-and-15 to keep the drive going. A pass interference penalty on Adam “Pacman” Jones put the ball at the 6-yard line with 12 seconds left. After an incompletion, Walter lined up wide right, cut to the middle of the field and was uncovered at the goal line. Offensive tackle Duane Brown ran to Yates and repeatedly slapped his helmet in celebration. The kid had come through when it mattered most. “Hey, we’re champs!” receiver Jacoby Jones said. “All my years I’ve been playing, I’ve never been on a team that

got over the hump.” Only 41,202 fans — the second-smallest crowd in Paul Brown Stadium history — showed up to watch the Bengals turn themselves into a long shot for the playoffs. They’d lost three of their last four, including a 35-7 drubbing in Pittsburgh last week that essentially eliminated them from the AFC North race. Now, they’re going to need help getting the final wild card berth. “As far as the team goes, they are very disappointed and I’m going to have to pump some air in them,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “Before this game, we controlled our own destiny, and now I can’t tell you what is going to happen.” The Texans have kept winning while losing quarterbacks. They took the final step into the playoffs without Johnson, who was inactive Sunday because of a strained left hamstring. Yates and a solid defense pulled them through. Yates went 26 of 44 for 300 yards with two touchdowns, one interception and five sacks. Houston’s defense was the stingiest in the AFC, and came through after the Texans fell behind 16-3 at halftime. Andy Dalton was sacked and fumbled, setting up Yates’ 6-yard touchdown pass that got the Texans some momentum early in the third quarter. “It did not look like we had any chance of getting out of here with a win,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “But we have a young quarterback who believes in what he’s doing.” In other games on Sunday: Broncos . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 13 Bears . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 DENVER — Tim Tebow led Denver to another comeback victory, with Matt Prater’s 51yard field goal with 8:34 left in overtime giving the Broncos a win over Chicago.

Murray State beats No. 21 Memphis The Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Donte Poole connected on his first three-pointer of the game then made more than he has ever made in his career at Murray State. Poole connected on a career-high six threes and had 20 points as Murray State remained undefeated with a 7672 victory over No. 21 Memphis on Sunday night. The Racers (10-0) took control early then had to weather a late Memphis rally to hold on for the victory. Each time Memphis made a run at the visitors, Murray State had an answer;


several times it was a longrange shot by Poole. “Anytime the first shot you take goes in, it’s always a big confidence booster,” Poole, a senior guard, said. “When that one went in for me, I just got in a groove early, so it kind of just felt good.” Murray State was up 71-60 with just under 2 minutes left before Memphis (5-3) scored eight straight points to make it a one-possession game. The Tigers trailed 73-72 with 14 seconds left. But Isaiah Canaan, who had 15 points, connected on two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and the Racers

remained one of only nine teams in Division I still undefeated. Ed Daniel finished with 13 points and nine rebounds for Murray State, and Ivan Aska had 12 points.

Dallas appeared to tie the game with a 47-yard field goal as time expired, but New York called a timeout. Given another chance to force overtime, rookie Dan Bailey’s kick was blocked by Jason Pierre-Paul — who also had a sack for a safety and forced a fumble.

Time for Colts to face future with Luck, not Manning By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press


he drama was gone by the first drive of the game, not that anyone expected the Indianapolis Colts to be competitive Sunday in Baltimore. Another loss, another miserable performance, and the countdown to imperfection still ticks away. That Peyton Manning will not play a down this season is now a given. That he may never play again for the Colts — a prospect that was once unthinkable — is now very much a part of any conversation about the most hapless team in the NFL. There’s still three more games to lose before the Colts gain a measure of notoriety by joining the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only NFL teams to go 0-16 in a season. Oddsmakers in Las Vegas are split on whether it will happen, though the play of quarterback Dan Orlovsky and others against the Ravens suggest money wagered on the possibility could bring in some extra cash for the holidays. If there was ever a sure thing, though, it’s that the Colts will turn in-

eptitude to their advantage by taking Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick of the NFL draft. They can’t afford not to, because the Stanford quarterback is as much a lock to be a star in the NFL as Manning was when the Colts last had the top pick in 1998. The question then becomes what happens to the man who has been the face of the franchise for more than a decade. The self-deprecating quarterback who made the Colts perennial contenders and took them to two Super Bowls, winning one. A certain Hall of Famer with a suddenly very uncertain future. The good news for Colts fans is the decision won’t be long in the making. Manning is due a $28 million bonus payment in early March, and by then owner Jim Irsay surely will have tweeted his intentions about a player who not only resurrected the Colts but helped Irsay build a brand new stadium. Do you keep a 36-year-old quarterback who had three neck operations in the last 19 months and missed an entire season because it just seems

NFL COMMENTARY like the right thing to do? Overpay at the quarterback position at the expense of not filling other gaping holes on the team out of respect for everything Manning has done for the franchise and the city? No, and no. Gratitude only goes so far in the NFL. Business decisions must be made, as hard as they may be. The Green Bay Packers didn’t understand that a few years ago when they let Aaron Rodgers stagnate on the sidelines for three seasons while Brett Favre dictated his terms of employment with the team. Favre gave them one last great year, but it came at the expense of the development of their quarterback of the future. Manning might have a great year left in him, too, though his slow recovery from his neck problems would give any general manager some pause. Still, the clock is ticking on his career and the Colts don’t have the luxury of time to rebuild behind him — especially if they spend so much at quar-

terback that they can’t keep pending free agents like Jeff Saturday, Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis. They also can’t draft Luck and expect him to sit and wait for his turn. Make him the No. 1 pick and he has to play. Manning could always offer to restructure the contract he signed before this season, of course, to help the Colts out. He already made some $25 million this season without taking a snap, and might be willing to consider a lesser payment as he works his way back from injury. That still doesn’t solve the problem of having two quarterbacks wanting to play. And Manning’s father, former Saints quarterback Archie Manning, suggested in a radio interview earlier this week that the arrangement would not work. “I don’t think it’d necessarily be great for either one,” the elder Manning said. “I think Andrew’s the type of mature player . . . he can walk right in. I mean, these other three or four guys that are playing this year, (if) they can walk in and contribute, An-

drew can, too.” Archie Manning later backtracked and said his son and Luck could coexist on the Colts. Team vice chairman Bill Polian said last month that Peyton Manning believes the same thing. The reality is drafting Luck and keeping Manning is a situation that might last a year, at best. After that, it wouldn’t be fair to Luck to keep him from getting quality playing time and it would be just as unfair for Manning to face a future where he might not be the starting quarterback. Far better to cut ties before the $28 million bonus is due and let Manning become a free agent. Use the money on contracts that will make the team younger and better. Give Manning a fresh start somewhere else. Give the Colts a chance to build for the future. And always remember, it’s just a business.

Winter Continued from D1 Senior James Reid, a third-year starter at point guard, carried a young Cougar squad last March into the state tournament. He’ll have more help this season as Mitch Modin, Blake Bosch and, eventually, John Carroll — he is expected to be out for several weeks recovering from a football injury — are all back after making major contributions in 2010-11. Looking at the wrestling season, Culver seems well positioned for a sixth consecutive Class 2A/1A state championship. The Bulldogs’ senior class is loaded with wrestlers who have been varsity contributors since their freshman years. But as Culver coach J.D. Alley points out, only one senior on this year’s team — Josue Gonzalez — has won an individual state title. Seniors Ryan Kasch, Jesus Retano and Miguel Gutierrez all have top-three state finishes in their careers, but no individual state championships — yet. In 4A, Crook County looks to take on defending champion Henley of Klamath Falls for the state crown. The Cowboys are off to a fast start this season, having defeated Henley 37-30 in a dual last week before taking second behind only Class 6A power Roseburg at this past weekend’s Oregon Coast Classic. The Cowboys’ biggest hurdle might be qualifying enough wrestlers to state through a regional tournament that includes four of the top 10 teams from last season. Henley’s road to state figures to be much less competitive, as the Hornets are the only program in their regional that finished in the top 10 at last February’s state tournament. Also in the season ahead, Central Oregon swimmers expect to bring home their share of hardware from state competition. Mountain View sophomore Brandon Deckard is back for the Cougars after winning two state titles — in

Summitt Continued from D1 But even as Summitt assumed the familiar position she has held for 38 years — at the head of the Tennessee bench, arms folded, eyes darting — there was the inescapable feeling so much has changed since Summitt, 59, revealed in August that she has early onset Alzheimer’s. Standing tall in her trademark pantsuit, Summitt still barked commands to her players — “hands up, get back, box out.” But in the huddles, the coaching trenches, it was her assistants whose words rang loud. “Life isn’t fair, it’ll happen to anyone, it just so happens to be Pat Summitt,” said Holly Warlick, who has been with Summitt at Tennessee for 27 years and now handles the postgame meetings with reporters. “She’s battling. She’s making sure these kids understand that you can function with the disease and still be productive. I think that’s the message Pat Summitt wants.” Summitt still does her postgame radio show broadcast in Knoxville. On some days, after practice, she banters with reporters who cover the team on a full-time basis. But seven games into the season, the awards seem to be lining up — Sports Illustrated’s sportswoman of the year last week, the Maggie Dixon award for courage on Sunday — as if this just might be a farewell tour. The imagined end for the woman with the most coaching victories (1,076) and na-

the 200-yard individual medley and 100 backstroke — last February as a freshman, while Bend High senior Doug Steinhauff looks to defend his 100 freestyle state championship. At Summit, junior Madi Brewer returns for the Storm after winning the 100 backstroke at state last season. And don’t forget the area’s dominance in alpine and nordic skiing. While each of the two ski disciplines has multiple governing bodies in Oregon, Central Oregon is expected to compete again for state boys and girls titles in each sport. Make sure to look for our previews of the local downhill and cross-country ski teams later in the month.

Tri-River going coastal The Oregon School Activities Association made several significant changes at its executive board meeting last Monday. Those changes included the placing of Redmond’s new Ridgeview High in the Intermountain Hybrid when the school opens in fall 2012, and moving Redmond High from Class 6A to 5A the same year. Another move by the OSAA will directly affect Culver: Scio, which has played in three consecutive 2A state football finals, will move to 3A for the next school year and out of Culver’s Tri-River Conference. While competitively the move makes sense, Scio, which is located about 20 miles northwest of Albany, will be replaced in the TRC by Waldport, located on the central Oregon Coast and a drive of about 200 miles from Culver. Waldport, which is currently competing in 3A, has had declining enrollment numbers that now put the school in the 2A classification range of 106 to 225 students. The move may be only a two-year fix, as the OSAA’s next fouryear time block is set to begin with the 2014-15 school year, at which time Waldport could find itself in another classification or league. — Reporter: 541-383-0305;

tional championships (eight) was on Kim Mulkey’s mind after her top-ranked Baylor team opened the Garden doubleheader with a 73-59 victory over St. John’s. “When you all let us out of here, I’m going to go out and watch her team play, because you never know how many games she’s got left in her to coach,” said Mulkey, who played against Summitt as an undergraduate at Louisiana Tech and for her on the 1984 United States Olympic team. Mulkey is one of an expanding cadre of women around the country to carve out a lucrative living coaching college basketball, and she knows exactly who to thank for that. “She means to the women’s game what John Wooden means to the men’s game,” Mulkey said of Summitt. “Her presence on that floor and what she means to all of us, I don’t think that anybody will ever have that presence.” Mulkey was in a staff meeting last August when her cell phone buzzed, again and again, until she picked it up and read the text message. She sent her assistant away, took a deep breath and called Warlick in Knoxville to hear the news for herself. She watched Summitt’s interview with Robin Roberts on ABC last month and was overcome with emotion hearing the frank talk about what awaits her. She thought of Summitt’s son, Tyler Summitt, a Tennessee basketball player, and her own children — a son and a daughter of similar age. “No son should have to stand there at his age and hear that his mom is getting that kind of

diagnosis,” Mulkey said. “The special with Robin Roberts did hit me really hard because it kind of gave a description of what we’re dealing with and I didn’t want to hear that.” In the second half of the Baylor game, Summitt walked out to center court to receive the Dixon award, named for the former Army coach who died of heart failure just short of her 29th birthday in 2006. When Summitt passed the Baylor bench on the way back to the locker room, Mulkey broke her timeout huddle and gave her old friend a hug. “I just told her I loved her,” she said. Summitt was also embraced by Brittney Griner, the 6foot-8 center, who along with the guard Odyssey Sims has made Mulkey’s team a strong favorite to win Baylor’s second national title. Tennessee (5-2), headed to Rutgers on Tuesday night, is a top-10 team, with obvious motivation to be much more. Asked if the desire to win another title for Summitt might be a burden for the players, Warlick said: “I think at Tennessee every year we’re always supposed to win the championship, and if we don’t we haven’t had a good year. That’s what Pat Summitt has built. But yeah, instinctively they’re playing for Pat.” Glory Johnson, the Lady Vols’ star forward, said, “We’re playing for everyone with the disease, not just Pat.” But Summitt, sounding much like her usual self, has told her team to just play to improve and to win. She gets her message across, one way or another.

In the late stages of the elite men’s race, Jeremy Powers leads the way during the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross in the Old Mill District in Bend Sunday afternoon. Powers went on to take the victory.

’Cross Continued from D1 The final day of the U.S. Gran Prix was one for the favorites in the elite races. Czech Republic rider Katerina Nash and defending series champion Jeremy Powers rode away from their respective fields to earn commanding victories. Nash posted a 9-second win against runner-up Nicole Duke in the elite women’s race. The victory was Nash’s fifth of the series, and she easily captured the overall title with 364 points. Duke was second with 197, and Meredith Miller, who was second on Saturday, finished third, another seven points back. For Nash, who took third in the cyclocross world championships earlier this year, racing in Bend also offered the chance to explore a town in which she had stopped once only briefly. “I am excited that I finally had a chance to just kind of hang out for a couple days,” Nash explained after her race. “It’s a beautiful place. It would be fun to come back and ski around here, too.” On the men’s side, Powers motored away from eventual second-place finisher James Driscoll at the start of the penultimate lap before posting a 10-second victory. Like Nash, Powers won five races in the series — the final five — en route to the overall title, his second consecutive. “To have this, I’m really happy about it and I’m proud

“To have this, I’m really happy about it and I’m proud of it, and two years in a row is great.” — Elite men’s race winner Jeremy Powers

of it, and two years in a row is great,” Powers said of his series win. Canadian Geoff Kabush used a third-place finish on Sunday to propel himself into second in the overall series standings with 226 points. Bend pro Ryan Trebon, who was unable to compete in either race of the weekend due to a leg injury, still took third in the overall standings. He finished with the same number of points as Kabush but one spot lower because of tiebreaker criteria. In all, Ross said, about 500 riders participated in each day of the Deschutes Brewery Cup, numbers he described “a little down, but not terrible.” A couple of reasons for that, Ross noted, are the extension of the 2011-12 cyclocross season compared to prior ones, and the travel distance to Central Oregon for a number of competitors. This year’s national championships will take place Jan. 4-8 in Madison, Wis. — about a month later in the season than they did when

they were staged in Bend the past two years. But riders and spectators alike were treated to relatively pleasant Central Oregon weather, at least for December. Saturday was especially mild. “The weather has cooperated with us this year,” Ross said. “It makes my job a lot easier when the weather’s like this.” And while the crowds for Sunday’s elite men’s race did not seem quite as densely packed as for the same event at cyclocross nationals a year ago, spectators did turn out

in respectable numbers and cheered robustly — with plenty of dogs and clanging cowbells on hand. Among results of note for local riders, in the men’s masters 35+ division, Bend resident Ben Thompson made a spirited attempt at his second victory of the weekend. Thompson charged hard on the final lap and whittled away almost all of Grant Berry’s lead before falling just four seconds shy of Berry at the finish line. Other top local finishers include Lance Haidet, of Bend, who won the boys 10-14 division Saturday and Sunday, and Alice Drobna, who prevailed in the Category 2/3 women’s division on both days. — Reporter: 541-383-0393,

Legal Notices LEGAL NOTICE Arnold Irrigation District Monthly Board Meeting The Board of Directors of Arnold Irrigation District will hold their monthly board meeting on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 3:00 pm at 19604 Buck Canyon Rd. LEGAL NOTICE Notice of Preliminary Determination for Water Right Transfer T-10845 / Mitigation Credit Project MP-129 T-10845 filed by Deschutes River Conservancy (PO Box 1560, Bend, OR 97709) and Central Oregon Irrigation District (1055 SW Lake Court, Redmond, OR 97756), proposes a change in place of use and a change in character of use under Certificate 83571. The right allows the use of up to 2.977 Cubic Feet per Second (CFS) (priority dates of October 31, 1900 and December 2, 1907) from a diversion (COID North Canal) on the Deschutes River in Sec. 29, T 17 S, R 12 E, W.M. for Irrigation in Sec. 14, T14S, R13E, Sec. 3, 4, 5, 9, and 10, T15S, R13E, and Sec. 14, T16S, R12E, W.M. and Pond Maintenance in Sec. 8 and 9, t15S, R13E, W.M.
