The Oregon Department of Transportation plans to unveil today a new proposal to ease traffic on the north end of Bend. The latest version of the plan substitutes an intersection north of Cooley Road where ODOT p r eviously p r oposed an interchange. Spokesman Peter Murphy said ODOT designed the intersection and other modifications in response to concerns from residents, businesses and others. "Essentially the change is we're not going through the Hunnell neighborhood, we're not doing an interchange with ramps

(north of Cooley Road)," Murphy said. "We're going to go with the intersection ... It's smaller, with less impact." Traffic at the intersection of U.S. Highway 97 and Cooley Road has impeded development at the 1,500-acre Juniper Ridge mixed-use project, which the city owns. For years, ODOT officials said the city must complete extensive roadwork to prepare the area for additional traffic that the development wasexpected togenerate. See Highway/A6

Investors not

waiting for a fiscal deal By Michael A. Fletcher and Dina EIBoghdady The Washing ton Pos t

As lawmakers struggle to agree on a plan to avert the series of tax increases looming next year, many investors are taking preemptive action to get out of harm's way. Americans are moving to sell investment homes, offload stocks, expand charitable donations and establish tax-sheltering gifts before the end of the year. Financial advisers and accountants say people are trying to avoid the higher taxes that will take effect in 2013 if Washington does not avert the "fiscal cliff." For the most part, the people moving their assets are the wealthy, who have the most to lose even if a deal is struck. Ordinary Americans also are in line for higher income and payroll taxes and fewer deductions and tax credits if the nation goes over the fiscal cliff. But since most of their earnings come through wages, there is little they can do to minimize the impact. SeeInvest/A6

over the running of the country.

Mali — Soldiers arrested Mali's prime minister and forced him to resign before dawn on Tuesday, showing that the military remains the real power in this troubled West African nation despite hand-

the country's military to try to take back Mali's north from Islamic extremists.

In the rain forests of Costa Rica lives Anelosimus octavius, a species of spider that sometimes displays a strange and ghoulish habit. From time to time these spiders abandon their own webs and build radically different ones, a home not for the spider but for a parasitic wasp that has been living inside it. Then the spider dies — a zombie architect, its brain hijacked by its parasitic invader — and out of its body crawls the wasp's larva, which has been growing inside it all this time. T he current issue of t h e p restigious Journal o f E x perimental Biology is entirely dedicated to such examples of zombies in nature. They are far from rare. Viruses, fungi, protozoans, wasps, tapeworms and a vast number of other parasites can control the brains of their hosts and get them to do their bidding. But only recently have scientists started to work out the sophisticated biochemistry that the parasites use. "The knowledge that parasites can m a nipulate their hosts is old. The new part is how they do it," said Shelley Adamo of Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, a co-editor of the new issue. "The last five to 10 years have really been exciting." In the case of the Costa Rican spider, the new web is splendidly suited to its wasp invader. Unlike the spider's normal web, mostly a tangle of threads, this one has a platform topped by a thick sheet that protects it from rain. The wasp larva crawls to the edge of the platform and spins a cocoon that hangs down through an opening that the spider has kindly provided for the parasite.

Manipulationin the genes To manipulate the spiders, the wasp must have genes that produce proteins that a lter spider behavior, and in some s pecies, scientists are n o w pinpointing this type of gene. Such is the case with the baculovirus, a virus sprinkled liberally on leaves in forests and

gardens. (The cabbage in a serving of coleslaw carries 100 million baculoviruses.) Human diners need not worry, because the virus is harmful only to caterpillars of insect

species, like gypsy moths. When a caterpillar bites a baculovirus-laden leaf, the parasite invades its cells and begins to replicate, sending the command "climb high." The hosts end up high in trees, which has earned this infection the name treetop disease. The bodies of the caterpillars then dissolve, releasing a rain of viruses on unsuspecting hosts below. David Hughes of Penn State University and his colleagues have found that a single gene, known as egt, is responsible for driving the caterpillars up trees. The gene encodes an enzyme. When the enzyme is released inside the caterpillar, it destroys a hormone that signals a caterpillar to stop feeding and molt. Hughes suspects that the virus goads the caterpillar into a

Ram Gal via The New York T>mes

A jewel wasp stings a cockroach, injecting a chemical that robs it of its ability to make decisions, at left, and lays an egg inside a cockroach at right. Scientists are just now working out how such parasites manipulate their hosts. Their host is a shrimplike c rustacean called a ga m marid. Gammarids, which live in ponds, typically respond to disturbances by diving down into the mud. An infected gammarid, by contrast, races up to the surface of the pond. It then scoots across the water until it finds a stem, a rock or some other object it can cling to. The gammarid's odd swimm ing behavior a l lows t h e parasite to take the next step in its life cycle. Unlike baculoviruses, which go from caterpillar to caterpillar, thornyheaded worms need to live in two species: a gammarid and then a bird. Hiding in the pond mud keeps a gammarid safe from predators. By f o rcing it to swim to the surface, the thorny-headed worm makes it an easy target. Simone Helluy of Wellesley College studies this suicidal reversaL Her research indicates that the parasites manipulate the gammarid's brain through its immune system. The invader provokes a strong response from the gammarid's immune cells, which unleash chemicals to kill the parasite. But t h e p a r asite fends off these attacks, and the host's immune system instead produces a n i n f l ammation that infiltrates its own brain. There, it disrupts the brain's chemistry — i n p a r t icular, causing it to produce copious amounts of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin influences how neurons t r a nsmit s i g nals. Helluy proposes that the rush of serotonin triggered by the t horny-headed worms c o r rupts the s ignals t raveling from the eyes to the brain. Normally,an escape reflex causes the gammarid to be attracted to the darkness at the bottom of its pond. Thorny-headed worms may cause their host to perceivesunlight as darkness, and thus swim up instead of down.

ma-infected rats lose their fear of cat odor — potentially making them easier prey to catch. Glenn McConkey of the University of Leeds and his colleagues have found a possible explanation for how Toxoplasma wreaks this change. It produces an enzyme that speeds the production of the neurotransmitter d o pamine, which influences mammals' motivation and how they value rewards. Adding extra dopamine might make Toxoplasma's hosts more curious and less fearful. But Ajai Vyas of Nanyang

T echnological University i n Singapore has found evidence that Toxoplasma simultaneously manipulates its hosts in other ways. Infected male rats, he found, make extra testosterone. This change makes the males more attractive to females, and when they mate the males spread the parasite to females. Bycausingmaleratstomake more testosterone, Toxoplasma may do more than spread itself to other rats. Testosterone also tamps down fear. The infected rats may thus become even less concerned when they pick

up the scent of a cat. This research could potentially provide important clues about human behavior. In the case of Toxoplasma, for example, humans can become hosts if they handle contaminated cat litter or eat parasiteladen meat. Some studies have linked Toxoplasma infection with subtle changes in personality, as well as with a higher riskof schizophrenia. Adamo, the co-editor of the journal's new issue, thinks this new science of "neuroparasitology" can offer inspiration to pharmaceutical companies that are struggling to find effective drugs for mental disorders. "A number of the big companies have given up on their neurosciencelabs," she said. "Maybe the parasites can teach us something." She points out that the way parasites manipulate brains is profoundly different from drugs like Prozac. "The way that a p a rasite goes about changing behavior is not the way a neurobiologist would do it," she said. A typical drug focuses on just one type of molecule in the brain. Parasites, on the other hand, often launch a much broader attack that still man-

agestocause aspecificchange in their host. "Perhaps tweaking several systems simultaneously might give better results than trying to hit one particular system with a sledgehammer," Adamo said. But she added that she and other parasitologists barely understand those zombifying tweaks. "All we know now," she said, "is they have their own ways."

2 cases

could provide an

array of outcomes By Robert Barnes The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court gave itself plenty of room to maneuver when it agreed Friday to review the issue of same-sex marriage. The justices could decide one of the great political and civil rights questions of our time, rule narrowly on the two cases it accepted or even punt,on the groundsthat the cases are not properly before them. But the court may have made it more difficult for President Barack Obama to avoid taking a stand on whether it is unconstitutional to exclude same-sex couples from the fundamental right to marry no matter where they live. Obama was both elected and re-elected with s t rong support from the gay rights movement. In May, he became the first president to endorse same-sex marriage, saying he had undergone "an evolution" on the matter. In literally the next breath, Obama endorsed a go-slow approach, saying he didn't want to "nationalize" the issue. But the court Friday did raise the possibility that the issue would be "nationalized" by agreeing to review California's Proposition 8. That is the 2008 referendum in w hich voters amended the state constitution to forbid same-sex marriage, which had been approved by the state Supreme Court earlier in the year. The Obama administration has never taken a position on the challenge to Proposition 8, which federalcourts have overturned. Theodore Olson and David Boies, who have led the high-

profile legal challenge to Proposition 8, said in a celebratory telephone call with reporters that they would defend a decision by a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. It overturned the referendum in a narrow way that restored the right to same-sex marriage in California. But they a lso s aid t h ey would push the court to rule that it is unconstitutional to e xclude gay c o uples f r om the right to marry, no matter where they live. And in response to a questionfrom Josh Gerstein of Politico, they turned up the heat a bit on the Obama administration. Boies called it "the defining civil rights question of our time," and Olson added: "Given the stand that the president of the United States and the attorney general of the United States have made with respect to marriage equality, we would certainly hope that they would participate." The justices did not ask Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, representing the federal government, to weigh in on the Proposition 8 case, and the administration is under no legal obligation to do so. But it would not be surprising for Verrilli to be pressed on the broader constitutional questions when he appears in the case the administration did want the court to take — a challengeof the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA. The law withholds federal benefits, such as preferential tax status, health insurance and medical leave, to samesex couples who are legally m arried w h er e t h e y l i v e . The Obama administration last year announced that it believed the law was unconstitutional, and courts have

Continued from A1 Prospective investors were often toldthat the search engine and the supplement distributor would soon be going public with an initial public offering, and that the search engine and auction site were on the verge



of being acquired by eBay. In fact, eBay had no plans to acquire Cooley's company — called "Bidbay" — and had sued Bidbay for t r ademark infringement. One of Cooley's business partners was paid a 50 percent commission onfunds received from investors, the documents state, though the commission was not disclosed to the investors. All together, approximately $1.1 million was transferred from investor accounts to the personal accounts of Cooley and hispartners in early 2002. Under the terms of his plea deal, Cooley has been ordered to pay $3.5 million in restitution to investors and $138,000 to the Internal Revenue Service. A Powell B utte r esident, Cooley in 1994 was less than two years into his first term as a state senator when longtime U.S. Rep. Bob Smith announced his retirement. Cooley won a c r owded Republican primary and was elected to Congress in N ovember, but ran into controversy during his re-election campaign in 1996. Cooley's troubles began with his statement in the voter pamphlet two years earlier, in which he claimed to have served with an Army Special Forces unit in the Korean War. Cooley was unable to provide documentation to support his claim. The resulting examination of other aspectsof Cooley's past called his credibility further into question. Despite his claims, Cooleyhad not been a member of theacademic honor society Phi Beta Kappa while in college, and had never earned a law degree or a master's degree. His residence in and thus eligibility for the district he'd represented in the Oregon Senate was also questioned, and it was alleged that his wife had kept her marriage toCooley secret so she could continue to get veterans benefits she received as a result of her prior husband's death. Under pressure from members of h i s p a r ty , C ooley dropped his re-election campaign; Smith was chosen to run forone more term in his place. Cooley attempted to win his seat back in 1998, but finished a distant third in the Republican primary won by U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, of Hood River. Cooley is scheduled to begin serving his p rison sentence March 11. — Reporter: 541-383-0387, shammers®

Highway Continued from A1 The two governments partially resolved that issue with a 2010 agreement to allow an initial increase in traffic volumes as long as the city helped pay for certain work, including an overhaul of the Highway 97 and Cooley Road intersection. On Tuesday, City Manager Eric King said the latest ODOT proposal is in line with the 2010 agreement and shows ODOT is open to considering some of the "mid-term" solutions the city has proposed to address issues at the Cooley Road intersection. "We're supportiveof the direction they're taking," King said of ODOT. ODOT has worked for at least six years on the plan to build a new four-lane section of Highway 97 just east of the current alignment, from the interchange of Highway 97 and U.S. Highway 20 to north of Cooley Road. ODOT held public hearings on previous versions of the highway realignment plan. The community raised concerns, and Murphy said ODOT "heard what they had to say." Now, ODOT is taking the latest version back out for public scrutiny, Murphy said. previous project estimates ranged from $150 migion to $200 million. M urphy s aid those numbers have not budged much, despite the changes. However, he emphasized that the estimates were never firm; ODOT has not completed a detailed project design. Murphy said he did not know when construction mightbegin. The project is not funded, which is normal at this stage because planning must be complete in orderto receive federal money, he said. "It's not uncommon to produce the study or analysis first, before you do go look for money," Murphy said. ODOT expects to complete a final environmental impact statement within six months. Michel Bayard, president of Hunnell United Neighbors Inc., is oneresident who raised concernsaboutpreviousprojectproposals. On Tuesday, Bayard said he had seen the latest plan but was not prepared to comment on it. "Before I can say anything about it, I want to make sure I understand it," he said. Bayard said that in the past,

PERS Continued from A1 For Bend-La Pine Schools, the anticipated increase to PERS costs next year without any changes amounts to about $4.5 million — or nearly $10 million for the biennium. If the governor's proposal were to go through, the district PERS system still would pay an increase next year of about $1.5 million. "The concern is that it doesn't do enough," Wilkinson said. "It's a good starting point." To put it in perspective, $4.5 million amounts to about 60 teaching positions, Wilkinson said. The $1.5 million would pay for about 20 teachers. That doesn't mean the district would trim teachers, as it would explore all options and look at the overall budget picture, Wilkinson said. "One of the last places we want to cut is teachers," he said. "I would never say that's the answer of what we're going to do." But there are no quick, easy answers, either. School districts

Ifyou go Bendnorth corridor project meeting When:6 p.m. today

Where:Oregon Department of Transportation Region 4 Office, 63055 N. Highway 97, Bend residentswere concerned "that heavy traffic would go through our neighborhood." Residents did not believe traffic data supported such a large project, and some people were concerned the project would hurt businesses by making it more difficult for people to access Cascade Village Shopping Center and other businesses. In May, a group of businesses that included Cascade Village Shopping Center and Lowe's, as well as the city of Bend and Deschutes County, sent a letter to ODOT outlining their concerns. The group wrote that although long-term problems with the highway needed to be addressed, ODOT should focus on finding short-term solutions. "We believe that financially feasible, phased solutions can significantly reduce congestion while allowing access to

devote much of their budgets to personnel, about 85 percent. Kathy Stienert, director of fiscal services at Redmond School District, echoed the sentiment of Bend-La Pine Schools. "The bottom line is that the governor's proposed funding really doesn't get us to being able to restore all of the days and all of the staff that we've had tocut,"she said." ...W e're more than delighted that he is supporting PERS reform; it's just not enough." Without changes to PERS, estimates of PERS increases for the 2013-14 school year leave the Redmond School District about $2.3 million short, which amounts to D school days or 30 teachers. The governor's recommended reforms would only cover about half the district's projected increase, Stienert said. "It's really going to take multiple changes to stem the negative impact on school district budgets," she said. Gauging the final outcome, Stienert said, is difficult because of other variables, like how proposed cuts to education

key commercial and industrial facilities, and will reopen Bend for business," the w o rking group wrote. Deschutes County Road Department Director Chris Doty said, "The biggest thing we were concerned with there was the project at a certain level didn't lend itself to phasing." An intersection instead of an interchange north of Cooley Road will make it easier for the project to be completed in phases,because an intersection has a smaller footprint and less impact on the surrounding transportation infrastructure, Doty said. For example, if ODOT built an interchange, it would typically eliminate any other road access to the highway within a quarter of a mile. "We all know we can't build a $150 million project any time soon on the north end," Doty said. "But hopefully we can do something for substantially less than that, that will still provide meaningful capacity and benefit, maintain access at Cooley (Road), maintain reasonable access to the shopping center and just overall manage the corridor, versus building expensive projects." — Reporter:541-617-7829,

service districts may impact the school district. Sisters School District Superintendent Jim Golden said he is happy with steps for reform, adding that he hopes they will pass any challenges in court. He estimates that any savings for the district are 18 months to two years away. Jefferson County S c hool District Superintendent Rick Molitor said any reform efforts are welcomed. "Anything will help," he said. "What's been proposed really helps us maintain where we're currently at, but not necessarily reducing the obligation of the district." Lonn Hoklin, spokesman for Oregon School Boards Association, said the organization supports any effort to look at PERS that reduces the costs to school districts. But the legislative session — and the full discussion — has yet to begin, he said. "It's just the beginning of the game," he said. "It's the first inning. We don't even have three outs yet."

Impending changes in the law could reduce the gift exclusion to $1 million for an individual or $2 million for a couple. An increase in the capital gains rate could potentially hit many middle-income families, particularly since it applies to the taxable portion of the profit from home sales.

state cash

on federal timberland By Lauren Dake The Bulletin

SALEM — Bruce Hanna, co-speaker of the Oregon House of Representatives, said it twice, enunciating slowly, as if trying to wrap his head around the idea: The governor plans to use state money to help manage federalforests. "I can't get that," Hanna told Brett Brownscombe, Gov. John Kitzhaber's naturalresources policy advisor, on Tuesday. Brownscombe spoke at a session of the joint county task force on legislative payments. So the plan, the Republican from Roseburg asked, is to spend $4.5 million of state money toward thinning, restoring and harvesting timber on federal lands'? The answer: yes. "Why are we spending state money to manage federalforests?"Hanna asked. Brownscombe agreed that the concept, part of Kitzhaber's budget plan unveiled last week, is unique. "If we want more of the same, we could continue to beat that drum and it's not without merit," Brownscombe said. "But we don't want more of the same." The idea is to use $4.5 million in lotterybacked state bonds to help fund local federal forest collaboratives. The state hopes to partner with the federal government with the idea that the state will spend its money toleverage federal funds. There are no specifics worked out with the federal government, Brownscombe said, but talks have

"The governor is willing to put state money into advancing the pace and scale of federal forest management work," Brownscombe said. "Most states have not been willing to do that. He's saying, 'I'm tired of the gridlock at the congressional level ... This issue is too important to not make an investment.'" The idea is that local federal forest collaboratives will have key stakeholders around the table figuring out ways to harvest timber and manage it more actively, in part so it is not wiped out by fires. The governor believes giving money to locals to figure out ways to manage the federal forests will spur rural economies, create jobs and help avoid litigation. Phil Chang, with the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, said the idea has worked so far with the Deschutes Collaborative Forest Project. SeeTimber /B5

days spent lounging around by the pool. There wasn't even any sunshine. Instead, Amy spent the week mixing concrete, sawing wood and hammering nails, all while getting continuously drenched by torrential rains. "It rained the whole time," Amy said. "We were in tents that were getting

soaking wet, but it was just the best experience, because I realized it's not about getting tan or being with friends. It's about getting the job done and help-

ing people." Amy, a Bend High School senior, has spent most of her spring breaks throughout high school in Tijuana, Mexico, with her church youth group, building houses for people in need there. Every spring, about 60 people from New Hope Church drive a bus from Bend to the Mexico border. SeeStudent/B2

Homeless village site chosen in Eugene The Associated Press

EUGENE Pitched as a "micro-housing pilot project" for the homeless, a s mall w o o d-and-vinyl village received initial approval from t h e E ugene City Council. Proponents said the dangers of living on the streets range from physical violence to the threat of arrest, in addition to the winter cold. On Monday, thecouncil voted 6-1 to pick a vacant city-owned lot for the homeless village, though it won't be ready by the winter deadline organizers hoped for. The vote will allow city staff to select a nonprofit to operate what will be called OpportunityVillage Eugene. The council also indicated it would approve 6-by-14-foot wood and vinyl structures called Conestoga huts. The village still needs a conditional use permit, so it may not open until spring, the Register-Guard reported. "We've got a bunch of citizens who've put a huge amount of work into this proposal," Councilor Alan Zelenka said after the vote. "I didn't want to wait another month (to vote). I felt we had enough information to move ahead now." Zelenka cautioned that the process of securing a conditional-use permit for the homeless site could take four to six months, which means the village might not be operational until April or June, at the earliest.

Slaughter plant supporters want to examine ci records The Associated Press PENDLETON — The group behind a pr o p osed h o rse slaughter facility in Eastern Oregon says it suspects the city of Hermiston coordinated with animal-rights groups in its fight to keep the slaughter facility out of the city. The group, United Horsemen, has requested all city records and documents pertaining t o h o rse slaughter, including any emails on the subject. "I've battled these groups l ike Humane Society on a national level," said Dave Duquette of United Horsemen. "I know that as soon as you start something lik e t h i s ( h orse slaughter facility), they start

funneling money in. I want to know what kind of help they received, and from who." The city recommended narrowing the city email accounts Duquetterequested from 155 to 11 in order to save time, arguing the search would take 775 hours if all city employee accounts were inspected. Those 11 email accounts include the mayor, city council, city manager, assistant city manager andcity planner,The East Oregonian reported. The city initially requested $651 for labor and materials.

LabOr talkSreSume — Pacific Northwest grain terminal companies and the longshore union have resumedcontract talks in hopes of averting a lockout. A federal mediator joined the sides

Tuesday and another session is scheduled for today. ThePacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association had given longshoremen until Dec. 8 to accept its final offer, but the deadline passed without a lockout. The association includes the owners of terminals in Port-

land, Vancouver, Wash., and the Puget Sound. Thecontract with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union expired Sept. 30. A quarter of all U.S. grain exports move through Northwest grain

terminals. A work stoppage would affect farmers from as far away as the Midwest.

Salazar: Wild horsesalesface scrutiny

Student charged withkilling grandma — Policehave charged a17-year-old college student with aggravated murder in the death of his grandmother in the Portland suburb of Milwaukie. A rela-

tive was unable to reach63-year-old Donna lrene Tennant and called The Associated Press C OLORAD O SPR I N G S, Colo. — Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is restricting the number ofwild horses people can buy from the federal government andpromises to prosecute those who sell mustangs for slaughter. Salazar's a n n o uncement comes afterreports about Tom Davis, a southern Colorado livestock hauler an d h o rse slaughter proponent who has bought more than 1,700 horses from the Bureau of Land Management since 2009. Davis' purchases account f or 70 percent of BLM w i ld horse sales since 2009. The Gazette previously reported that the BLM sometimes contacted him to see if he'd like to buy more horses. Davis has told Colorado of-

ficials that he shipped some horses out of state, in violation of brand inspection laws. The Alamosa County district attorney is investigating the transfers. But Davis has said he honored contracts promising the animals wouldn't be slaughtered. Salazar told The Gazette in an interview that buyers can be prosecuted for falsifying sales applications and for indirectly selling horses to slaughter by reselling to middlemen. Salazar also said buyers will be limited to five horses every six months. Larger orders must be approved by the BLM's deputy director. The BLM oversees most of the 35,000 wild horses roaming public lands in the West. They are protected by l aw from slaughter.

But the agencyhas struggled with how to manage growing horse herds, which can double naturally within five years if left unchecked. Horses have been injected with drugs and vaccines to slow reproduction and rounded up for adoption, but the BLM c u rrently has m ore horses in captivity more than 45,000 — than are left roaming the range. A BLM investigation of Davis' purchases was transferred to the interior department's inspector general in October when it became clear that federal employees could come under scrutiny, Salazar said. "When I became aware of the magnitude of his purchases and the concerns of illegal activity I asked the BLM to open an investigation of Tom Davis," Salazar said.

overnments and other public bodies in Oregon don't always have to take the lowest qualified bidder. There are exceptions under Oregon's bidding laws. Central Oregon Community College is considering using an exception when it bids out the construction of a new $22 million, 330-bed student dormitory. COCC's choice appears to be justified — at this point. There are good reasons why Oregon law generally insists on competitive bidding. Requiring the use of the lowest qualified bidder creates a level playing field for businesses seeking government contracts. It's a check on favoritism and other bad "isms." The exception COCC is considering is known as construction manager/general contractor, or CM/GC. Under CM/GC, COCC does not have to take the low bid. It is allowed to consider such things as the expertise of applicants. CM/ GC also gives the contractor more ability to weigh in during the design of a project. But one of the biggest benefits CM/GC can offer is greater certainty about price. Sometimes, buildings or projects turn out to be more expensive than anyone thought. Things are discovered during construction of the project that require change orders and can run up the cost. CM/GC offers some protection against that. COCC would get a guaranteed maximum price. As long as costly changes were not COCC's fault, the contractor has

to pay for them and the price of the building stays the same. CM/GC is not perfect. The city of Bend built the downtown parking garage with a CM/GC contract. The guaranteed maximum price was $9.7 million. It cost the city $10.7 million, though primarily because of changes the city requested. Governments that use CM/GC are also supposed to justify it. Under law, CM/GC bidding should still be competitive and there should be other benefits, such as cost and time savings. Governments are required to write up a report after the project ends to justify the use of CM/GC. That all sounds good. It's the execution that is flawed. When Bend filed its report on the parking garage, for instance, it said it had saved time and $500,000 on the project. But it didn't offer any details. And to whom does the government submit this report justifying CM/GC? To itself. That's not much of a check or balanceon CM/GC. COCC officials are aware of these concerns. We hope COCC will become a model of how CM/ GC should be used.

Kitzhaber's plan for Nike is a good one for Oregon he issue is jobs. If the Legislature will provide certainty on one particular tax issue, Nike, Inc., will commit to expanding in Oregon, spending at least $150 million and creating at least 500 jobs within five years. It's an easy choice; the Legislature should say yes. Under current Oregon law covering the so-called "single-sales factor," companies are taxed only on in-state sales. That matters to big companies like Nike or Intel, which sell most of their inventory outside Oregon. Nike wants a commitment that the state will continue that particular tax policy. The agreement would not,however, preclude other tax changes. A proposal from Gov. John Kitzhaber would empower the governor to make an agreement with Nike or with any other company making a similar commitment in jobs and capital investment. The length of the tax policy commitment would be part of that agreement,determined by the governor. Nike says it has outgrown its facilities, which include a large property near Beaverton, and that

it has been courted by other states. The company employsabout 8,000 people, and current average pay is reportedto be more than $100,000 a year. The governor said the Nike expansion could provide a $2 billion boost and as many as 12,000directandindirectjobsovera seven-year period. Kitzhaber has been working behind the scenes for more than a month and appears to have won the support of business and legislative leaders. He has called for a special session of the Legislatureon Friday to approve the plan. Why the rush? If the governor waits for the 2013 Legislative session, any new tax law wouldn't take effect until next July, according to The Oregonian. Nike is hoping for a swifter commitment. If the governor succeeds, the state would not be walking away from any existing tax revenue. It would be providing one piece of tax certainty to a critical state employer, and ensuring further economic development and job creation. The idea is clearly a good one for the state.

ever politicized judicial nominations. One of Roe'sstrongest supporters on the court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, noted in remarks at Columbia University in February: "It's not that the judgment was wrong, but it moved too far, too fast." At the time of Roe, abortion was legal in four states and legal under limited circumstances in about 16 others. We'll never know what would have happened if the court had let the democratic process play out in the matter of abortion. What we do know is that gay marriage also confronts the unelected justices with delicate issues of morality, equal rights, federalism and democracy. It does so at a time when democratic politics appear to offer advocatesofsame-sex marriage opportunities not available to, say, opponents of segregation at the time of Brown. Indeed, the political momentum behind marriage equality is so strong that its ultimate victory seems, if not inevitable, then nearly so. Even in the South, support for gay marriage is 14 percentage points higher than it was a decade ago, according to Pew. Political reality, in this case, may counsel judicial restraint. Procedural and other particularities of the two cases before the court could permit the justices to keep a door open to gay marriage without slamming another on its opponents. Marriage equality is important. So, too, are national harmony, selfgovernment and the rule of law. Whatever it d o es, the Supreme Court should make it possible for the American people, sooner or later, to have all three. — Charles Lane is a member of The Washington Post's editorialboard.

The fiscal cliff and the farm bill: a rice farmer's perspective By Michael SkalIcky Hearst Newspapers

A NADO, Texas — I a m a third-generation rice farmer. My wife and I farm about 300 acres of wheat, 500 acresofgrain sorghum, 400 acres of soybeans and 350 acres ofrice.We also own about 60 head of beef cattle. I also help my dad take careof his 400 acres of rice and his 650 head of beef cattle. My dad is 71 years old. My wife and I used to farm 500 acres of strictly rice, but the rice market has not enjoyed the market effects from the energy subsidiesthat corn and beans have. So I began to look for other options and discovered that in order to survive, I had to diversify. The problem with that is the land I farm is only good for growing rice and cattle. Rice is a totally different crop from any other out there. Rice is flood irrigated, while corn and beans are farmed in dry-land rows and sprin-

kler irrigated. I would have take on substantially more debt to buy new equipment and change my irrigation system in order to make the jump from riceto other crops. I had not farmed any other crop before and I had no idea what seeds were best, chemicals to use, or local merchants to market my crops. And I had to contend with all the typical uncertainties associated with farming — weather, markets, costs, insects, disease and water issues. I basically had to start over. So I have a lot of experience with uncertainty. What's going on in Washington is just another instance of it. I have no idea what Washington has in store for the Farm Bill's safety net. Congress may include the Farm Bill as part of a "grand bargain" to avert the "fiscal cliff" come Jan. I. But if they do, which version will it be: the one that passed the Senate — not rice-farmer friendly — or the one that

passed the House Agriculture Committee — a big improvement? Why do we need safety nets? Farming is not an occupation you can do when prices are good and get out of w hen prices arebad.You haveto build and maintain a farm long enough to justify the astronomical costs it takes to operate. Safety nets ensure that after a natural disaster or market collapse, there are still farmers left to feed America. Also, they give me a measure of certainty to present to my banker when I have to renew operating loans. My banker doesn't like to loan large amounts of money to businesses full of uncertainties. Actually, I don't like farm subsides. I don't like people assuming farmers are receiving a handout. I don't want the government meddling around in my business. But the problem is that U.S. farmers are not on a level playing field with the rest of the world. For instance, the U.S. has high food

safety standards; I can't use certain chemicals in crop production because they are known carcinogens. Y et the countries we impolt r i c e from are Third World nations that can usethe less-expensive, outlawed products. And the U.S. imports their products, no questions asked, and sticks them on shelves in the grocery store right next to ours at a cheaper price. I have to buy tractors with tier 4 engines that are way more expensive than other countries without U.S. pollution standards. Third W o rld countries are allowed to have market protective subsidies (WTO rules) that the U.S. is not allowed to have. I think that if Americans want their food produced to a certain standard, then substandardcommodities should not be allowed into the country. I admit, I don't know what the right answer is for U.S. farmers. But I have some suggestions.

First, Ithinkthat a lot of money could be saved in the Farm Bill if the government would require recipients of farm payments to actually be farmers. In Texas,tenant rice farmers have been kicked off the land so the landowner could get the farm subsidies. I know peoplehere in Ganado who have not produced a crop in 15 years and have enjoyed the Farm Bill's benefits. Second, we need to get out of the WTO. The U.S. can negotiate our own free trade agreements that are more favorableto our farmers. Third, we need to realize that if we want high food standards, a cleaner environment andbetterworker safety standards than any other country in the world, then our commodities/ productsare going to be more expensive than every other country in the world. — Michael SIEaliclEy farms rice, wheat, miloand soybeansin Ganado, Texas.

Plen of smoke clouds the future of legalized pot

Continued from B1 The committee gave the green light to i nvestigate how much in urban renewal dollars such a project might need. "The idea is to expand the scope into something more l ike we have in the Dr y Canyon," said Bill Duerden, Redmond director of public works. With those potential Urban Renewal funds, the city will initially look at a trail that extends from Quince A venue ( b ehind H o m e Depot) to Veterans Way, a stretch nearly three miles

SEATTLE — C u stomers have been drifting into Jay Fratt's alternative pipe and tobacco shop, Smokin J's, in the days since Washington's marijuana law took effect, wondering when c annabis would take its place on the shelves next to t h e h and-


blown glass pipes. Hold on, he told them. Fratt is, before anything else, a businessman, and he quickly realized there was a lot of smoke in the details. First of all, the law setting up the nation's first legal regulatory system for retail pot won't allow sales until next year. And the federal government still considers marijuana illegal. Then there are the taxation provisions: Can legal r etailers compete with t h e b lack market w h e n t h e y have to pay more than 25 p ercent i n ta x es? W h a t about the provision that says marijuana shops can't stock a nything but pot an d p o t supplies? What would happen to the Vancouver, Wash.,

Jeff Millar, the wordsmith behind the long-running comic strip "Tank M cNamara," which evolved into a biting satire of the sports world, died Nov. 30. He was 70. The Texas native,

drama of sports — and how seriously Americans take them — always amused Millar, said h i s wife. A t 6- f o ot-3, Millar had the p h y sique of an athlete, but he w a sn't necessarily a s p orts zealot. "Jeff's perspective

T he daily, syndicated comic strip — withahefty-jawedprotagonist who matured from a bumbling ex-NFL player into a reflective TV sportscaster — runs in about 150 newspapers nationwide. Bill Hinds, who draws the strip and took over the writing a couple of months ago, said Millar asked him to collaborate on the project from the start. Millar wanted to do something "satirical and sardonic" lik e "Doonesbury,"Hindsrecalled, but with a focus on sports. The

An e ventual s outhern portion of the trail would extend along Canal Boulevard to Ridgeview High School, at Redmond's southern city limit. The trail system is also plannedto have components that will route pedestrians and bikers into the historic downtown core. Problematic in the sectionsfrom Evergreen south are several busy intersections. "It's a matter of determining how much to invest in the key crossings versus how much people will use them," said Duerden. What kind of crossings — such as improved-at-grade crosswalks or underpasses — has yet to be decided. "This hasn't been fully designed o r en g i neered yet," said Richards. "Once that is complete we'll have better cost estimates." Early rough estimates are about $700,000 to $1 million for the entire project. The OPRD grant will be used, along with $30,000 from the Redmond parks fund, to complete the section from Maple to Quince because it is outside the Urban Renewal District. If approved by the City Council, the rest of the project would use urban renewal funds for the Maple-toVeteran improvements, including increased protections at intersections. "The urban renewal objective is to create a lot of utility for users, to connect with the business community," said Richards. "I see this moving forward in the next 12 to 18 months."

The state Liquor Control Board is asking for a staff of 40 to help set up a network of possibly300 or more state-licensed retail stores. The board must also figure out how to regulate growers and packagers. T hat process wil l t a k e much of the next year. While it has been legal since Thursday for adults to use small amounts of marijuana away from public view, they can't buy it, sell it or grow it until regulations are in place.

Suspensionsfor Saints tossedout

Liability in concussion suits may be costly

NEW ORLEANSFinding fault with nearly everyone tied to the New Orleans Saints' bounty

case, from the coaches to Roger Goodell, former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue tossed

out the suspensions of four players Tuesday and condemnedthe team for obstructing the investigation.

In a surprising rejection of his successor's overreaching punishments, Tagliabue wrote that he would "now vacate all discipline to

be imposed upon" two current Saints, linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith, and two players no longer with the club, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and free-agent defensive lineman An-

thony Hargrove. Tagliabue essentially absolved Fujita, but did agree with Goodell's finding that the other

three players "engaged in conduct detrimental to the integrity of, and public confidence in, the

game of professional football." It was a ruling that allowed both sides to claim victory more than nine months after the league first made "Saints bounties" a

household phrase: The NFL pointed to the determination that

Goodell's facts were right; the NFL Players

Association issued a statement noting that Tagliabue said "previ-

ously issued discipline was inappropriate." — The Associated Press

Nieri, the Outlaws' 5-foot-7 senior guard, tied the game 32-32 just before the end of regulation to send the contest into the extra period. In OT, Sisters hit seven of eight free throws to hold off Madras.

Sisters, which plays Gladstone in the first round of the Gladstone Tournament on Friday, went 13 of 22 from the line as a team and rallied back from a five-point deficit with two minutes left in regulation. "It came down to experience," said Madras coach Mike Osborne, whose program was hit hard by graduation this past spring. "We had a few untimely turnovers and they found a way to be aggressive and get to the freethrow line in overtime." Sophomore Mariah Stacona led the Buffs with 12 points. Freshmen Kalan Wolfe and Vanessa Esqueval added seven points apiece. Madras went to the foul line just 11 times Tuesday night and hit only five of those shots. Cassidy Edwards added eight points for the Outlaws and Jacobie Petterson contributed seven to help Horner earn her first victory against the White Buffaloes as a head coach. "These girls never give up," Horner said.

As the National Football League confronts a raft of lawsuits brought by thousands of former players who accuse the league of hiding information about the dangers of concussions, a less visible battle that may have a greater effect is unfolding between the league and 32 of its current and former insurers. The dispute revolves around how much money,if any, the insurers are obligated to pay for the league's mounting legal bills and the hundreds of millions of dollars in potential damages that might stem from the cases brought by the retired players. Regardless of how it is resolved, the dispute could hurt teams, leagues and schools at all levels if insurers raise premiums to compensate for the increased risk of lawsuits from playersand theirparents who play hockey, lacrosse and other contact sports. The NFL, which generates about $9 billion a year, may be equipped to survive these legal

challenges. But colleges, high schools and club teams may be forced to consider severe measures in the face of liability issues, from raising fees to offset higher premiums to

Lates ot ro es roo oun Bulletin staff report PRINEVILLE — Troy Benton hit a game-winning floater in the lane with 2.8 seconds to give Crook County a 61-59 boys basketball victory over Burns. Marcus Greavesscored a game-high 18 points for the Cowboys, Dillon Dees added 13, and Jacob Mahurin connected on three three-pointers en rout to 11 points to help Crook County improve to 4-1 on the season. The Cowboys avenged

BOYS PREP BASKETBALL their lone loss of the season with the nonleague win. The Hilanders topped Crook County 57-50 on Saturday in the final of their own Burns Tournament. "I don't know what the numbers are, but we shot a lot better tonight," Cowboys coach Jeff Lowenbach said. "It was a hard-fought, back-and-forth game."

Burns (4-2) hit a free throw with 25 seconds left in the game to tie the nonleague contest 59-59. Benton drove the lane, though, on Crook County's next possession and lofted a shot into the basket with just under three seconds left. The Hilanders' half-court desperation heave missed and the Cowboys held on for the win. "It was fun to be apart of," said Lowenbach, whose team hosts Douglas on Friday.

requiring players to sign away their right to sue coaches and schools. Some schools and leagues may even shut down teams because the expense and legal risk are too high. "Insurers will be tightening up their own coverage and make sports more expensive," said Robert Boland, who teaches sports law at New York University. "It could make the sustainability of certain sports a real issue." The NFL contends that the insurers, some of whom wrote policies as far back as the 1960s, have a duty to defend the league, which has paid them millions of dollars in premiums. The question for the NFL is not whether the insurers are required to help the league, but rather what percentof the league's expenseseach insurer isobliged to cover. Determining how to allocate those costs, though, is complicated because the insurers are so diverse. Some of them wrote policies for one year, while others did so for a decade or more. A few went bankrupt or merged with rivals, or insured only NFL Properties, the league's merchandising arm that the retired players also sued.

No. 3 Michigan roLits Binghamton The Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Jordan Reed leaped high into the air, slamming home a missed shot and giving Binghamton at least one highlight to remember from its visit to Crisler Center. The rest of the night was forgettable. Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over the Bearcats on Tuesday

night. "That's a great team — a team that could win a national championship — so coming into their building was taking an awfully big bite at the apple," Binghamton coach Tommy Dempsey said. "I'm not sure that I thought it was realistic for us to come in here and beat Michigan, but I thought we were competitive, and at this stage of our program, that's a great step in the right direction." The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89, and this win was every bit the mismatch it looked like before the opening tip. The Bearcats (2-9) were coming off a 22-point loss to Bryant. They led Michigan 10-8 before the Wolverines went on a 19-2 run. It was 34-14 at halftime. Reed scored 11 points and was Binghamton's only player in double figures. He also had eight rebounds. "If you are a small school and you want to upset a top-five school, you have to hit a ton of shots, especially from 3-pointers. That team is awfully tough in the paint, so we knew we were going to need 3s. I thought we had some great looks in the first half, but we only made one or two, and after that, you're trying to come from 20 down against a team like that," Dempsey said. "I thought we really competed on defense, because they have so many players who can score the ball. To hold them in the 60s is a pretty nice achievement."

inosaur eaves im rint in ustraia By DENNIS PASSA The Associated Press

C OOLUM, A ustr a l i a — Golfers at the Australian PGA Championship might feelas if they are going back in time. Way back in time. T he new o w ner o f t h e Palmer Coolum Resort has erected a 26-foot mechanical T-Rex between the ninth green and 10th tee, which flips its tail and opens its mouth for a menacing roar

when anyone approaches. The owner, billionaire Australian m i n i n g ma g n ate Clive Palmer, has at l east agreed to turn it off during the tournament. But it's one reason the Australian PGA will be leaving Coolum after 11 years. "I've heard it sounds like we are going to Jurassic Park, so this will be interesting," Robert Allenby said. Palmer wants to i m port more molded dinosaurs and turn the ocean resort into a theme park, or maybe a casino. But his plans have clashed with a tournament that dates to 1905. The owner already has put up more than 60 signs around the golf course to promote his interests, which includes his plan to build a replica of the Titanic. Some of those signs, however, are in the landing areas on the fairways. That forced organizers to mark those areas "ground under repair," where golfers will be able to move the ball if the shot is affected by the signs. On Sunday, the issue came to a head with Australasian PGA Tour officials, and the tournament appeared in jeopardy. The show will go on, at least this year. PGA chief


U.S. set toname captain Thursday By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

The PGA of America is

bringing a mystery guest to the "Today" show — its next Ryder Cup captain. An organization that is not shy about giving rockstar treatment to the Ryder Cup, the PGA of America said Tuesday it would reveal the next U.S. captain during a segment Thursday of N B C ' s m o r ning show, followed by a news conference in the Empire State Building. NBC i s t h e l o n gtime broadcast partner of the Ryder Cup. Adding to the intrigue is which direction the PGA of America decides to take — its model of choosing

former major champions in their late 40s, or a stately

figure. The next Ryder Cup will be in 2014 at Gleneagles, Scotland, and there has been recent support for Tom Watson, who is revered in golf's homeland for having won four of his five British Open titles in Scotland. W atson said over t h e weekend at the Australian Open that it would be a "great honor if I got tapped on the shoulder." Watson, who came within an 8-foot putt of winning the British Open at Turnberry in 2009 when he was 59, said in Sydney he had not spoken to PGA of America officials. There also has been a push for L a r r y N e l son, who was overlooked as a captain two decades ago. Nelson is a three-time major champion — twice at the PGA Championshipwho had a 9-3-1 record in the Ryder Cup and won all five of his matches in 1979, beating Seve Ballesteros in four of those matches. At least two former captains have lobbiedthe PGA on behalf of Nelson.

Where the top 20golfers in the world tend to play By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fl a. — Two of the golf tournaments Jeff Maggertonce considered his favorites were part of the Fall Series that didn't attract any of the top players. One of them was Disney, which began in 1971 and was played for the final time last month. Having finished his 22nd year on the PGA Tour, Maggert says the introduction of the World Golf C h ampionships, the FedEx Cup and the influx of so many top international players have changed the landscape. "When I started, the tournaments were very consistent week to week," Maggert said. "Now there seems to be a real up-and-down on strength of fields. That's just the way the tour has evolved. The World Golf Championships have really hurt the consistency of the rest of the tournaments out here." T he exceptions when h e was a rookie would have been the four majors, the invitation events like Memorial, Bay Hill and Colonial, and even Las Vegas, which back then had a higher purse than all the majors andevery tournament except for the Tour Championship. It led Maggert to do some math. Throw out the World Golf Championships, the four FedEx Cup playoff events, the four majors and that leaves only a dozen tournaments for the top players. He figured they all migrated to the same regular PGA Tour events, and while some stops are predictable, there is surprising balance. Here's the drill: Take the top 20 PGA Tour members from this week's world ranking (that goes down to Dustin Johnson at No. 21). Throw out the majors, WGCs, playoff events and The Players Championship. The strongest tournament not on that list was the Memorial, which attracted 15 of the top 20 players in this week's world ranking. The only other regular tournaments that had at least 10 of the top 20 were the Northern Trust Open at Riviera (12) and the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill (II).

GOLF NOTEBOOK The surprise was that nine players were at the Transitions Championship outside Tampa, Fla., which is in dire need of a title sponsor. The Copperhead course at Innisbrook is one of the best-kept secrets on tour, and some believe it's the best tournament course in all of Florida. The other tournaments drawing at least nine players were the Phoenix Open and the Zurich Classic, which has a separate ambassador program that compensates some players in the field. The Greenbrier C lassic also offers "incentives" — it got Tiger Woods and Phil M ickelson this year — so perhaps it's not surprising that it had more players from

today's top 20 (eight) than the Wells Fargo Championship

at Quail Hollow (seven). Three tournaments in the Fall Series — the Open, McGladrey C lassic and Disney — were the only ones on tour that did not have anyone from today's top 20. Narrowthe group to the top 10 in the world, and Memorial still had eight of those players in its field. It was followed by four tournaments that had five players from today's top 10 — Tampa, Riviera, Bay Hill and the Honda Classic. Even so, the PGA Tour is deeper thanever,especially

while going through a generational shift. There were 18 tournaments (besides the WGCs, majors and playoffs) that had at least five of the top 20 at their events. The s even tournaments in t h e regular FedEx Cup season

that did not attract at least five of the top 20 were the Sony Open, ATS.TNational, Wyndham C h ampionship, St. Jude Classic, Canadian Open, John Deere Classic and Texas Open. Most of those are products of their spot on the calendarfour are immediatelybefore or after a major. The AT8 T National, despite being played at Congressional, is two weeks after the U.S. Open, when the European Tour gets its players to come home for the meat of its schedule.

Jones Award Davis Love III goes from one prestigious honor to another. Unlike the Ryder Cup captaincy, the Bo b J ones Award won't take two years out of his life. The USGA selected Love to receive its highest honor. The Bob Jones Award began in 1955 and recognizes an individual who demonstrates the spirit, personal character and respect for the game that w as reflected in Jones, golf's greatest amateur and a ninetime USGA champion. Love has won 20 times on the PGA Tour, along with the 1997 PGA C h ampionship at Winged Foot. The reason for being chosen for the Bob Jones Award perhaps was summed up best by longtime friend Tom Kite. "Davis has conducted himself with such style and grace that everyone in the game respects and admires him," Kite said. "And Davis respects and admires those who make our game so rich. The big thing Davis has in common with Bob Jones is that as much as he loves golf, he loves the

Continued from C1 Some insurers wrote primary policies that covered up to the first $1 million of claims; the rest insured obligations in excess of that amount. Creating a formula for how t o apportion liability will i n s ome cases depend on t h e b roader case between t h e league and its players now in federal court in Pennsylvania. If the NFL persuades the judge to dismiss the case, it will be left trying to recoup its legal costs from the insurers. If the judge allows the players' case to proceed, the d efinitions of when, how and whether a player's concussions led to his illness will become critical in shaping the insurers' exposure,a process that could take years to sort out. "This is baby step I in the process for everyone figuring how deep in the soup they are," said Christopher Fusco, a lawyer who has worked on similar insurance cases but is not involved in the NFL litigation. "Baby step 2 will be to figure out the facts." The facts, Fusco and other lawyers said, w i l l l a r gely come from t h e u n derlying suit between the league and the retired players, including determining when the players sustainedthe head trauma and their injuries. This will most likely be a long process because many of th e t housands of retired players in the underlying suit, some of whom are now experiencing memory loss, played decades ago, when concussions were o ften undiagnosed o r n o t recorded. Many of the insurance companies named in the suits declined to comment, citing the c ontinuing litigation. As o f early Monday afternoon, the NFL had notcommented. The two-tiered battle between the league and its former players an d i n s urers echoes the litigation stemming from asbestos claims because both cases center on so-called long tail claims, or injuries that take years to manifest themselves. One of the critical points of contention in those cases was how to define an occurrence to determine an insurers' liability. In the context of the NFL case, the question will be whether a player's injuries should be treated as a single claim or a series of claims based on the number of concussions he received or the number of seasons he played. "This is an issue that gets to the crux of asbestos and environmental litigation," said William M. Wilt, the president of Assured Research, an insurance advisoryfirm. "If an occurrence is defined as each player and each season he played, you could hit the policy limits multiple times." The current case, though, is far smaller than the asbestos cases because the potential p laintiffs are limited to t he number of former pro football players. The effects of the legal

wrangling, though, may reverberate throughout the sports world regardless of how the retired players do in court. Fearful of future lawsuits, insurers may start raising premiums or excluding concussions and other injuries from their policies not just for the NFL, but also for hockey and lacrosse and other c ontact sports. As information about the link between head trauma and long-term injuries grows, coaches, athletic directors and others will have a harder time claiming they did not know of the connection if they are named in lawsuits.

"A common misconception is that no one's going to sue their youth league or n onprofit, but that's not the case," said Dan Pullen, who runs an insurance brokerage in Fort Worth, Texas, that specializes in policies for teams, players and leagues. "Maybe the league i sn't n e gligent, but there might be $50,000 in legal claims" for a lawyer to chase. The cases against the NFL are likely to be the most explosivebecause of the media spotlight and because so much money is at stake. The players are also more organized than, say, collegiate players, who lack a u n ion. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of plaintiffs' lawyers willing to represent former players. "The handwriting is on the wall, there's no question," said John Kircher, a law professor at Marquette University who specializes in the insurance industry. "Insurers will look at the dangers and might look at increasing premiums, and the insurers and the insured will ask whether the game is worth a candle." Kircher and other experts say they expect the courts to forcethe league's primary insurers to at a minimum pick up the NFL's legal fees, which are already in the millions of dollars. T he larger issue for t h e c ourts w il l b e to de c i d e whether the primary insurers will have to carry more of the burden than the insurers who wrote the excess policies. Because insurance laws vary from state to state, the answer may depend on w here the cases are tried, and here, the insurers may have the upper hand. New York law is thought to be more favorableto insurers, which may be why in August, Alterra America Insurance, which wrote an excess liability policy for the NFL, sued the league in a state court in New York. In its complaint, Alterra said it chose New York because the NFL has its headquarters there. The league shot back by suing 32 insurers, including Chartis Specialty Insurance, Fireman's Fund Insurance and several subsidiaries of Travelers, in state Superior Court in Los Angeles, arguing that it was the right venue because, among other things, California has three NFL teams and has hosted 11 Super Bowls and NFL Properties was incorporated there. California law is also considered friendlier to p olicyholders, insurance specialists said. But in late November, the court said that the NFL was " selective an d t a ctical" i n choosing California and ruled that New York was the better venue for the case. The judge, John Wiley, did not dismiss the case but said he wanted to see what happened in New York first. "The superfluous effort is not simply wasteful: It also poses the added threats of confusion and inconsistent results," Wiley wrote in his decision. "It is better to streamline and to simplify."

The Dow Jones industrial average rose for a fifth consecutive day Tuesday amid hopes that Washington is making progress on budget talks. If politicians reach a compromise on the budget, they could avert the collection of sharp tax increases and spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect automatically in 2013. The Dow had been down as much as 5.3 percent following the Nov. 6 presidential election on worries that a compromise wouldn't happen. The Dow has since recouped all of its post-election losses. Investors also expect the Federal Reserve to announce more stimulus for the economy when it closes its two-day policy meeting Wednesday.

Customershave been stepping up their spending at Costco this fall. The wholesale club operator disclosed last month that revenue in the September-to-November period jumped 10 percent from a year earlier to $23.2 billion. Costco reports earnings for the quarter today, and Wall Street will be listening for any insight into holiday shopping trends, as the company often puts its special holiday offerings out earlier than other retailers.

A group of 20 investors has purchased a majority stake in Bend-based High Desert Bank and also infused the financial institution with $1.4 million in additional capital, the bank announced Tuesday. The sale puts High Desert Bank on more solid financial footing, and will allow it to grow and add services beyond its mostly commercial lending, said Cynthia Kane, chairwoman of High Desert Bank's

board of directors. "It's given us the capital to be able to move forward," she said. Founded in 2007, High Desert Bank has one office, on Southwest Disk Drive, assets of about $30 million as of Sept. 30,and five employees, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. documents. Joining Kane, who owns her own health care consulting business, on the bank's board are Gary Fish, founder of Deschutes Brewery; Dr. Bruce McLellan, president of

Heart Center Cardiology, and executivesand owners ofother companies in the region. Previously, Capitol Bancorp Limited, a bank holding company based in Lansing, Mich., owned a majority interest in High Desert Bank. In 2008, Capitol Bancorp had 64 banks operating in 17 states, but the economic collapse pushed it into financial trouble. Federal banking regulators issued a cease and desist orderforCapitolon Dec. 29, 2009; the company began sell-

ing off banks, and it filed for bankruptcy in August. Capitol's difficulties had the potential to overflow onto High Desert Bank. FDIC documents said High Desert may have been on the hook for costs related to failures of other Capitol Bancorp-controlled banks. As of Sept. 30, High Desert was listed as adequately capitalized, a step below the top level, well capitalized, according to Capitol Bancorp's thirdquarter financial statements. Along with purchasing

Capitol's majority interest, however, the group of 20 investors also bought additional shares totaling $1.4 million, which will move High Desert Bank up to the well-capitalized classification, Kane said. It also means no one shareholder owns more than 9.9 percent of the bank, she said. Bank officials are finalizing a business plan for 2013 and considering offering more home mortgages, she said. — Reporter:541-383-0360,

The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — The FederalReserve isexpected to announce a revamped bond-buying plan today to maintain its support for the U.S. economy. The Fed's goal would be to keep downward pressure on long-term interest rates and encourage individuals and companies to borrow and spend. If it succeeds, the Fed might at least soften the blow from tax increases and spending cuts that will be triggered in January if Congress can't reach a budget deal. But its actions wouldn't rescue theeconomy. Chairman Ben Bernanke warned last month that if the economy fell off a "broad fiscal cliff," the Fed probably couldn't offset the shock. Fears of the cliff have led some U.S. companies to delay expanding, investing and hiring. Manufacturing has slumped. Consumers have cut back on spending. Unemployment remains a still-high 7.7 percent. If higher taxes and government spending cuts lasted for much of 2013, most experts say the economy would sink into another recession. On Tuesday, the Fed began a two-day meeting, which will end this afternoon with a statement announcing its policy decisions. Afterward, the Fed will update its forecasts for the economy, and Chairman Ben Bernanke will hold a news conference. The expectation is that the Fed will unveil a program to buy $45 billion a month in long-termTreasurys.This would replace an expiring program called Operation Twist. With Twist, the Fed sold $45 billion a month in short-term Treasurys and used the proceeds to buy the same amount in longer-term Treasurys.

ipping beer along the Bend Ale Trail and floating down the Deschutes River has led to an increase in tourism, according to data released Tuesday. Overall tourism in the city of Bend increased over the summer, based on lodging tax collections and occupancy rates, and the number of visitors from outside the state also went up, according to a 2012 summer survey conducted by RRC Associates, of Boulder, Colo., for Visit Bend, the city's tourism promotion agency. "In addition to the increase in tourists visiting Bend, they are also spending more money than they have in the recent past" said Doug La Placa, Visit Bend president and CEO. Visitors also participated in various activities at different rates than they did when last surveyed in 2009. Dining showed thelargestincrease, with 70 percent of visitors dining out in the summer of 2012, compared to56 percent in 2009, according to the survey. Kinley Sbandati, co-owner of Trattoria Sbandati, an Italian restaurant on Northwest College Way, said while the restaurant industry had a couple of rough years, it is

picking up. "This summer we saw a huge rise in the amount of

Floating down the Deschutes River is becoming a key attraction that draws tourists to Bend. With the reconstruction of the Colorado Street Dam, allowing safe passage for floaters, tourism experts think the popularity of the activity will continue to increase. diners that came through our establishment ... We were full almost every day," she said, noting about half her customers were tourists. "It seems like the word is getting around about Bend." While the research doesn't explainthe variance between 2009 and2012, La Placabelieves a rebound in the economy would affect visitors' discretionary income when it comesto diningout while on vacation. Participation in the Bend Ale Trail and the amount of brewery visits also increased, rising 12 percent over 2009, according to the survey. "Over 25 percent of visitors

coming into the Bend Visitor Center now are participatinginthe Bend Ale Trail,"La Placa said. "Sixty thousand maps were printed last year, and they are all gone." Bend was not simply a destination for beer lovers. Standup paddling, floating the river, kayaking and canoeing all gained in popularity between 2009 and 2012, and they are quickly becoming another staple visitor experience in Bend, La Placa said. Those activities have been aided by the creation of the Deschutes Paddle Trail, which maps out the different lakes and rivers, by the Bend Paddle

Trail Alliance, he said. It also helped Visit Bend book the National Paddle Sports Conferencein Bend forSeptember 2013. He said the reconstruction of the Colorado Street Damto providesafepassage forfloaters and whitewater for kayakers will likely increase participation in river activities. "With the growth of paddle sports that we are already seeing among visitors to Bend, any enhancements ... to the paddling assets in our destination are going to attract additional visitors to the area," he said. — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

Yahoo aims for mobile-friendly email By Douglas MacMillan Bloomberg News

Yahoo! Inc. upgraded its email service to appeal to mobile users, the company's first major product announcement since Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer took the helm, pledging to improve tools and services to lure back customers. The revamped email ser-

vice is designed to be faster and easier to navigate on the Internet, smartphones and tablets, the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company said Tuesday in post on its website. Mayer, a former Google executive, is seeking to reverse three straight annual sales declines by updating existing, widely used

products — including mail, the Yahoo Messenger chat service, and Yahoo's home page. The efforts are poised to stoke competition with her former employer, which has added millions of users to Gmail as Yahoo Mail has stagnated. "Because mobile is everything these days, Yahoo! Mail now has a consistent

look and feel across devices," the company said Tuesday. Versions of the new email will be available for smartphones and tablets running softwaresuch as Microsoft's Windows 8, as well as Apple"s iPhone and iPad and machines powered by Google's Android operating system.

om Lomax talks excitedly about how the early-season storms have set up the snow base at Mt. Bachelor ski area. The last three weeks have featured warm fronts, followed by cold fronts, allowing the wet, dense snow to cover the mountain without being swept away by wind, and the lighter, drier snow to fall on top. "It's not a typical earlyseason coverage where the rock ridges are still bare," said Lomax, the mountain manager at Bachelor. "The way this snowpack has come in, it's really covered things uniformly, which is fantastic for us moving forward." But Lomax still cautions that early-season conditions exist, and skiers and snowboarders need to be aware of hidden dangers that can harm their equipment — or worse. Rocks and treestumps under the snow can ruin a day on the slopes by thrashing a board or skis or injuring a snowrider. Lomax notes that warm air pockets surrounding the lava rock at Bachelor can melt the snow and make for hard-to-see hazards as well. Ridges and areas in the trees are also locations where skiers and snowboarders should ride with care. "If you've ever been up on the mountain in the summer, you know that there's a lot of lava on the ridges, and you need to be careful on the ridges," Lomax said. eYou need to be careful in the woods; there could be a bent-over small tree that's completely covered up with snow that could be a hazard just under the surface ... or your typical tree that's been blown down and maybe isn't covered up yet." Many natural hazards are marked with bamboo sticks by ski patrol at Bachelor, but, as Lomax notes, "we can't mark everything." So avoiding obstacles and staying safe is ultimately the responsibility of the snowrider. See Early/D3

Seasons of the predator e bounced the coyote out of his bed in a draw and caught our first glimpse before he rounded a small hill. When we saw him again, he was 600 yards away. There were nine deer on the ridge line. He ran straight at the herd and, as we watched through our binoculars, he separated one doe from the group and ran her over the top of the hill and out of sight. I didn't see the outcome because we didn't have permission to be on that sideofthe fence. Folks tell me four-legged predators only prey on the weak and the sick. Others say coyotes only eat mice and rabbits. There is truth in both statements, but partial truth. Predatorsare opportunists



LEWIS and if a healthy deer makes a mistake, a coyote, bobcat, mountain lion or bear is going to exploit it. How much damage do predators do to our elk, deer and antelope herds? What effect do they have on mountain goats and wild sheep'? The answer variesfrom region to region, and from individual to individual. Bobcats focus on smaller prey like mice, birds and rabbits, but they can have an impact on big-game populations as well. See Lewis/D4

Trail Update

Continued from D1 The snow base at Bachelor's West Village Lodge was 44 inches as of Tuesday, according to As the base continues to build, rocks and other hazards will be covered. But new ones can always present themselves. "It can just move you into a new set of hazards, because now we'reinto the tree branches," Lomax explained. "Even if it's 100 inches of snow, there's new things that will be (barely) coveredup. By 80 inches, things are really covering up, but you still need to be aware of the hazards that are out there." Skiers and snowboarders should also be aware of their own fitness in the early season. Muscles will be used that possibly have not been used since last spring, and overdoing it on the slopes is a common problem in December. Especially if they did not en-

gage in any preseason conditioning, snowriders would be wise to limit their runs during their first couple of days on the mountain. "They should just take it easy and don't ski until they're completely tired," Lomax advised. "Leave a little bit on the table for the next day. And just watch their speed." And watch for other skiers as well. On crowded weekends, fellow skiers and snowb oarders ca n b e come y e t another hazard on the slopes. All snowriders should know the National Ski Areas Association's Skier's Responsibility Code. Perhaps the most important part of the code is that skiers or snowboarders ahead have the right of way. Getting lost can also be a concern in the early season, and all season long. Snowriders should always be aware of which chairlifts are open and never leave the ski area boundary. Because ofthe sheer size of Mt. Bachelor— 3,700 acres of lift-accessible terrain, 10 chairlifts and 71 runs — skiers and snowboarders need to orient themselves to their surroundings and know where they are at all times. For skiers who keep skiing downhill without really knowing where they are, the results can be disastrous. "Bachelor's a big mountain," Lomax said. "Being a cone, everything is close together at the top, but if you make a mistake, when you get to the base of that cone you're much farther apart from everything else. People don't understand the shape of the mountain, if you think about the angles." Lomax adds that if snowriders believe they could be lost, they should stop. Continuing downhill is often the wrong decision, but it is an easy one to make. "Mentally, your brain wants you to go downhill," Lomax

•Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others. Early-season skiers should be watchful for natural hazards not quite buried in the snow. "You need to be careful in the woods; there could be a bent-over small tree that's completely covered up with snow that could be a hazard just under the surface ... or your typical tree that's been blown down and maybe isn't covered up yet," Lomax said. said. "In my experience, lost skiers, 99 percent of them, the mistake they make is continuing downhill. Pretty s oon, you're outside the ski a r ea boundary, and you're continuing downhill, downhill and downhill, and what's at the bottom is Sparks Lake." Lost skiers and snowboarders can be found and returned to safety by ski patrol with the use of snowmobiles or Sno-Cats. In the last five years or so, Lomax notes, cellphones have made search-and-rescue operations much more efficient. If a snowrider has a charged cellphone and has service, he or she can call 911. "We ask 911 to ping the phone, and get the latitude and longitude," Lomax explained. "We plug it into Google Earth

and we can know where you're at. Sometimes that process takes less than five minutes." T he d ownsides t o c e l l phones are that sometimes the phone has died because it was not charged, or the snowrider does not get service at his or her location. Also, cellphones can give a false sense of security. "They should not think that that's going to be a fix all, because there'sa lot of areas on the mountain that don't have

a lot of (cellphone) coverage,"

Lomax warned. "It's a great thing, but you still need to rely

on good judgment." Snowriders should use that same good judgment at Central Oregon's smaller resorts as well. Hoodoo Mountain Resort, just northwest of Sisters, opened this past Friday with

According to my journals, the magic minute comes when the long hand has cycled 13 times. That was the timing for that big dog on the ranch near Arlington. We set up with the wind in our faces, our backs against a haystack. Thirteen minutes in, he trotted out of the same draw we had jumped him from the last time. When he stopped for a v i sual, 50 yards out, I connected with a Nosier Ballistic Tip. I told the rancher about it

FISHING REPORT For the water report, turn eachday to the weather page, today on B6 Here isthe weeklyfishing report for selected areas in andaround Central Oregon, provided by fisheries biologists for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife:

CENTRAL ZONE ANTELOPEFLATRESERVOIR: Fishing has been fair. There are still plenty of large trout up to 22 inches long available. The changing weather may make travel difficult, so be prepared for muddy or snowy road conditions. BEND PINENURSERYPOND: The most recent stocking was in late September, with a number of one-pound rainbow trout released. Fishing for them should be fair to good through the fall. CLEAR LAKERESERVOIR:W ater in reservoir is at low levels due to irrigation demand. Recent snow will limit access. CRESCENTLAKE:Opportunities for rainbow and brown trout are good. CROOKED RIVERBELOW BOWMAN DAM:Fishing for trout has been excellent. The use of bait is prohibited until May. DESCHUTESRIVER(MOUTHTOTHE PELTONREGULATING DAM): Summer steelhead fishing on theLower Deschutes is fair, aswater clarity has improved significantly. Fish arenow well-dispersed throughout the river, with good numbers of fish found by anglersfrom the mouth upstream

Outing Continued from 01 I couldn't wait to put back on the boots I'd rented. They're more comfortable than anything else I've worn on my feet, including socks. I'd have driven up th e h il l w e aring them, but I was afraid the little bar at the front for clipping into the skis might snag on a

pedal. I slipped back into the boots feeling like C i nderella. We carried our gear across the

full (of Subarus) parking lot, where clustersof people were coming and going. We wove through a cluster of y oung skiers, and next thing I knew, Map Guy clicked into his touring skis. There were far too

many people around for my liking; if I was going to fall on my face or other part of my body, I'd have preferred to do it in a more private setting. No such luck. Before I could figure out skis, I had to fumble around w ith th e p o les. Ma p G u y showed me how put my hands through the loops near the ends of the handles. So far, so

good. Snapping into the binding had sounded so easy back at the store. "Oh, OK, sure, OK, Ithink I get it," I had said back when it had first been explained to me. In practice, however, it was a little more difficult. After a few failed attempts, the toe of each boot magically clicked into place. We were all set to go. Gulp. I slid one foot tentatively forward, then th e n ext. H oly moly, I was sort of skiing, my face ata safe remove from the snow. At the speed I was going, it would be spring before I got to the shelter. "You make it look so easy," I told Map Guy, who skied effortlessly ahead. "It is easy," he said, exhibiting the cloying confidence of the experienced. "Easy" is a relative term, and my relatives come from Florida, where skiing is done on water or not at all. We were headed north on the Tangent Loop, and went directly to the right side of the groomed path, where two grooves maybe a foot apart notched the perfect track for classic skiing, especially for a beginner. There were mirror tracks on the left side, for skier traffic headed the other way. I made a silent wish to survive long enough t o e x perience them. The groomed track made the going easier, but there was

Fishing remains good fortroutdownstream from the WarmSprings Reservation Boundary. DESCHUTESRIVER(LAKEBILLY CHINOOK TOBEND): Flows have increased with the end of irrigation season. This will make the river more difficult to wade but often triggers trout to feed more heavily and seek out new territories. Rainbow trout are averaging 10 to 16 inches, while brown trout up to

26 inches are available. Anglers will find better access downstream of Lower Bridge. Remains open yearround; however, gear is restricted to artificial flies and lures only. FALLRIVER:Fishing is good. The river below the falls closed Sept. 30. The river above the falls is open all year. Fishing is restricted to flyfishing only with barbless hooks. HOOD RIVER: The bulk of the summersteelhead run has passed the fishery in the Hood River,

although a few late fish may be present. Anglers may encounter a few stray fin-clipped coho in the lower river, but success will be limited. LAKE BILLY CHINOOK: Fishing opportunities for post-spawning bull trout are excellent. Anglers are reminded there are small numbers of spring chinook and summer steelhead in Lake Billy Chinook as part of the reintroduction effort. METOLIUS RIVER:Trout fishing has been good. Insect hatches should offer lots of opportunities for good dry fly-fishing. Angling for post-spawning bull trout should be excellent. Large streamer flies fished in the deeper pools and slots are the best bet. NORTH TWIN:Excellent fall fishing opportunities are available. OCHOCO RESERVOIR: Recent sampling shows there are plenty of trout available ranging from 8 to 16 inches long. The low water may make launching a boat difficult. PRINEVILLEYOUTHFISHING POND:Fishing should be great. SHEVLINYOUTH FISHING POND: Shevlin Pond is fishing well and typically fishes well throughout wtnter tf not tced over. SUTTLELAKE:Recent fish sampling showed excellent trophy brown trout opportunity. Kokaneefishing is poor. WALTONLAKE:Fishing has been fair.

Manzanita Loop, another 1.5 miles that would bring us back to Tangent Loop and eventually the parking lot. I said "sure," not realizing until a later map study that this stretch of Manzanita is labeled "intermediate." From the start, I was going too fast for comfort, and began falling like a true beginner, mostly out of cowardice, but also because I hadn't yet learned how to turn on skis and this trail had sharp turns. For about five minutes, I spent more time lying or kneeling in snow than skiing. Map

even skiing, gliding along on my left foot and right foot, feeling — could it be? — natural. "You got it!" Map Guy said. I may have broken into one of those oddly big skier grins, only interrupted by the sight of a car roof with one of those plastic containers on the roof. "Aw. Are we back already'?"

I asked. Map Guy suggested we turn back and go another

Guy wisely suggested we head mile, but three miles seemed back the way we'd come in, on a trail designated "beginner." All was going well. Then we reached the large hill we'd come up earlier. I'd have to negotiate it if I was going to get back to the car. I'll spare you the details except to say that at one point and desperate to get down, I tried to sit on my skis and ride down toboggan-style, but they were too narrow — or I was too wide. After yet another fall, I started to take off my skis to hike down, but Map Guy wouldn't hear of it. He showed me how to side step down, which was e xactly as slow a s h i k i n g down facing forward. I managed to make it down alternating between side-stepping and the most enfeebled s now plowing that hill h a s ever seen. The tips of my skis

"Skyler nags, Betty is cold and personality-less. Lori is lame and stupid enough to get pregnant during an apocalypse." Ultimately the biggest problem for the wives of AMC may also be the most intractable: "Women are socialized to identify with both male and female protagonists, but I don't think men are socialized to identify with female protagonists.

NEW YORK — Even by the gruesome standards of AMC's zombie megahit "The Walking Dead," the death of Lori Grimes, the heavily pregnant wife of protagonist Rick Grimes, was unusually brutal: a crude prison-floor C-section followed by a bullet to the head dispatched by her young son, Carl. Yet many viewers greeted t he development no t w i t h despair or horror but with a sadistic kind of glee, flocking to Twitter, Facebook and online comment threads to post heartwarming eulogies like this one: "Lori left The Walking Dead the same way she came in. With her pants off." The incongruous reaction to Lori's demise in the Nov. 4 episode fits in with a broader trend at AMC, where unpopularfirstwives have become a network hallmark in the same way incest plot lines and gratuitous female nudity have at HBO.

Yet Lori, Betty and Skyler have all committed minor sins that make them wholly unsympathetic — or at least "annoying" — to certain viewers: They've each slept with men other than their husbands, made parenting mistakes, and, perhaps worst of all, gotten in the way of their partner's bad behavior.

insecure, you should be furious. How would he feel if the person answering that poll had been you? You have my sympathy because his first marriage has been over for nearly two decades and he — along with h i s ob v i o us shortcomings — are no longer her problem, but yours. How-


ever, your pain may

lessen if you look at the bright side: He treats you well 363 days a year, and many of the women who write to me are not so lucky. Dear Abby: I have been involved with a man in a long-distance relationship for two years. I care about him very much and I believe he cares for me. Things were going great until he was devastated by a downturn in his business. He had planned to move here, but was unable to sell his home. We used to see each other every two weeks, but no longer. It has been almost two months. He calls once a week, but nothing else. We have been close and he has shared his life, his worries and personal information with me. I haven't pressured him and I don't need a commitment now, although

HAPPY BIRTHDAYFOR WEDNESDAY, DEC. 12, 2012: This year you express your unique creativity, as an endless amount of unusual solutions and fun ideas seem to come from you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) ** * * K eep reaching out to others, especially if recent circumstances caused a problem or a stunned reaction. Focus on conversations, yet maintain an even pace. You'll cover a lot of ground if you let others open up. Detach if you have a strong reaction. Tonight: Take a risk.

I would like one someday. Abby, he seems to be drifting away. Is it OK to write to him, email him, send encouraging notes once a week and continue to support him'? Is it too much to ask for more f requent c o m munication f r o m him? I have offered to travel the 1,000 miles, but he has evaded my offer. I'm not ready to walk away. We have been greattogether and this is difficult for me. Advice? — Holding On in Coastal California Dear Holding On: It's fine to be supportive, but don't overwhelm him right now. You may have to let this play out in its own time. Your friend may haveretreated because he's concentrating his energy on reviving his business. He may be licking his wounds or he may have met someone, which is why he discouraged your visit. That he still calls you is encouraging. Because you have known him for two years, I recommend you simply ASK him if he's met someone else. If the answer is no, it will put your mind at ease. But if the answer is yes, at least you'll be clear about what happened. — Write to Dear Abby at

Wait to draw trumps

2 Automaker with the slogan "Born from jets" sWee hour

By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

Between sessions of an event at my club, some of us went to a restaurant that had a sign on the wall: "Eat now, pay waiter." Some players insist on drawing trumps first — and they often pay for it later. Managing your trumps may require waiting to draw them. If trump control may be a problem, attack your side suit early. Today's declarer took the ace of diamonds and cashed the K-A of trumps. When East discarded, South led theA-K of clubs. West ruffed, took the queen of trumps to draw d ummy's last trump, and led a diamond. South ruffed but lost two clubs to East.

ANSWER: T h i s p r o b lem i s difficult, and expert opinion would vary. Some players would risk an overcall of one heart, hoping to hear another bid from someone. A few would bid 2NT, "Unusual," showing length in t h e t w o l o w er-ranking unbid suits. I t hink most experts would double, even though showing both of the long suits might prove awkward.
