Venezuela looks at life after Chavez By William Neuman New York Times News Service

CARACAS, Venezuela — The bottlenecks at a major port were so bad this year that Christmas trees from Canada were delayed for weeks, and when they did show up they cost hundreds of dollars. A government-run ice cream factory opened with great fanfare, only to shut down a day later because of a shortage of basic ingredients. And all of this took place

in a growing economy. Such frustrations are typical in Venezuela, for rich and poor alike. Yet President Hugo Chavez has managed to stay in office for nearly 14 years, winning over a significant majority with his free-spending of state resources and his abilitytopersuade Venezuelans that the Socialist revolution he envisions will make their lives better. Now that revolution is threatened. SeeVenezuela/A6

Silt buildup in the middle of Mirror Pond, seen in an aerial view Wednesday, has had those with a stake in it scratching their heads — and spending money — for years in search of a solution.

• It may be years before a steering commiteedecides on a solution for silt buildup By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

For six years, money has flowed from public agencies and private companies to solve the silt buildup that is creating mud flats in Mirror Pond. The Bend Park & Recreation District, City of Bend, Pacific Power and William Smith Properties Inc. spent nearly $86,000 since 2006 on work to help officials decide what to do, according to information provided by the city and park district. Yet the agenciesand companies represented on the Mirror Pond Steering Committee have not decided what to do, and it could be years

until a project to improve the pond gets under way. Work slowed last year, when the steering committee discovered that the study it had been planning would cost approximately $500,000. It was a sum no one was prepared to pay. The public and private partners had paid consultant Michael McLandress $48,000 for work that included a request for proposals and other groundwork. Then, earlier this year, the city and park district each pledged to spend $100,000 more on finding a solution. This includes paying for a different, less expansive analysis of options, and a public process to find out what the community wants. The park district also hired a project manager tooversee the public process to selecta preferred plan for Mirror Pond. SeeMirror Pond/A8

SALEM — While discussing a possible tax deal for Nike, State Sen. Chris Telfer, R-Bend, asked Thursday why the legislation specific to the sportswear giant shouldn't be simply called, "the Nike bilL" "Let's just do it," Telfer said, to which the room let out a collective chuckle. "Let's make it one bill for Nike, get the recognition from Nike that yes, they will stay in Oregon." Lawmakers will meet today in a special legislative session, convened by Gov. John Kitzhaber, to consider passing a bill that would guarantee companies a locked-in corporate tax structure if they spend at least $150 million and create 500 jobs over a five-year period. The contract could last up to 40 years. Representatives of the Beaverton-based sportswear company met with the governor to ask him to convene a special legislative session to pass the legislation. Officials from Nike said they were being wooed by other states, were at capacity and were ready to expand. The discussion in a special legislative committee lasted more than three hours, with some pushing to narrow the bill, like Telfer, to avoid unintended consequences, and others advocating expanding it to include smaller businesses. Sunset dates were discussed, as was the issue of whether there was enough time — the governor announced the special session Monday — to properly vet the legislation. Those in favor of the bill include the governor, who called it "a big win" for the economy and maintained that it will not be costly to the state. The benefit, proponents said, is the company expands in Oregon with no revenue loss. Kitzhaber did request a change in one section of the bill. If left unchanged, the section would apparently exclude Intel from being able to take advantage of the proposed legislation, according to reporting by The Oregonian. SeeNike/A8

Egyptian OppOSitiOnreSpandS —Twodays before aconstitutional referendum it considered boycotting, Egypt's secular opposition finally launched its "no" campaign Thursday in Cairo with

newspaper and TVads detailing the argument against the charter drafted by Islamist supporters of President Mohammed Morsi. The deadly violence and harsh divisions of recent weeks — combined

with the inability of most Egyptians to evencomprehend thedensely written 63-page document — have turned the vote into a stark choice on whether the largest Arab nation takes a serious step toward theo-

Court says CIA detained wrong man By Nicholas Kulish New York Times News Service

BERLIN — A German man who was mistaken for a terrorist and abducted nine years ago won a measure of redress Thursday when the European Court of Human Rights ruled that his rights had been violated and confirmed his account that he was seized by Macedonia, handed over to the CIA, brutalized and detained for months in Afghanistan. In a unanimous ruling, the 17-judge panel, based in Strasb ourg, France, found t h at Macedonia had violated the European Convention on Human Rights' prohibition on torture and inhuman or degrading treatment, and ordered it to pay him about $78,000 in damages. It was the first time a court had ruled in favor of the man, Khaled el-Masri, 49, in a case that focused attention on the CIA's clandestine rendition program, in which terrorism suspects were transported to third countries for interrogation. The decision, which Amnesty International hailed as "a historic moment and a milestone in the fight against impunity," is final and cannot be appealed. The CIA declined to comment.

Up, up andaway

The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The military's small, top-secret version of the space shuttle rocketed into orbit Tuesday for a repeat mystery mission, two years after making the first flight of its kind. The Air Force launched the unmanned spacecraft Tuesday hidden on top of an Atlas V rocket. As if on cue, clouds quickly swallowed up the rocket as it disappeared out over the ocean. It is the second flight for this original X - 37B s p aceplane. The craft circled the planet for seven months in 2010. A second X-37B spacecraft spent more than a year in orbit. These high-tech mystery machines — 29 feet long — are about one-quarter th e s i ze of NASA's old space shuttles and can land automatically on a runway. The two previous touchdowns occurred in Southern California; this one might end on NASA's three-mile-long runway once reserved for the space agency's shuttles. The military i sn't saying much if anything about this new secret mission known as OTV-3, or Orbital Test Vehicle, flight No.3. In fact, launch commentary ended 17 minutes into the flight and a news blackout followed. But one scientific observer, J onathan McDowell o f t h e Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, speculates

That means the craft flew over the swatch between 40 degrees or so north latitude and 40 degrees or so south latitude. That puts Russia's far north out ofthe spaceplane's observing realm, McDowell noted. "It might be studying Middle Eastern latitudes or it might just be being used for sensor tests over the United States," he sald. McDowell speculates that this newest flight will follow suit.

Distant galaxyregains title asoldest in universe By Alicia Chang


The Associated Press

L OS ANGELES — A galaxy once considered the oldest has reclaimed its title, scientists reported Wednesday. Poring through Hubble Space Telescope photos, the team recalculated the galaxy's age and determined it is actually 13.3 billion years old — not a mere 13.2 billion. The dim galaxy f i l led with blue stars was first noticed last year by a different group of researche rs, who also used t h e workhorse telescope to make the p r evious age e stimate. It r e i gned a s the most ancient galaxy observed until last month when it was knocked off its perch by another distant galaxy. N ow it's back o n t o p after the team used a longer exposure time to get a clearer view of the earliest and far-off galaxies. Seeing the most distant galaxies is like looking back in time and this one existed when the universe was in its infancy — about 380 million years old. M ore observations are needed to confirm the result, but astronomers think it's the best candidate to date. B esides r e f ining t h e galaxy's age, they found six more early ones. "People have found one object here an d t h ere," but never so many early galaxies, s ai d R i c h ard Ellis, an a stronomer at the California Institute of Technology who led the new work.

about the bounty o f e a r ly galaxies, which should help refine theories about the formation of the first stars and galaxies. Astronomers think galaxies started appearing about 200 million years after the Big Bang, the explosion believed to have created the universe 13.7 billion years

ago. Our Milky Way — one of hundreds of b i l l ions of galaxies — formed about 10

billion years ago. The new study adds further evidence that galaxies formed gradually over several hundred million years and not in a single burst. " We want t o k n o w o u r cosmic roots, how things got started and the origins of the galaxies that we see nowadays," said Harvard University astrophysicist Avi Loeb, who had no role in the latest research. Launched in 1990, Hubble has consistentlypeered back in time to reveal ancient and distant objects. The farther away something is, the longer it takes for its l ight to travel to Earth, which scientists use to estimate its age. As far back as Hubble can see, it still can't capture the e arliest galaxies. That j o b is left to its more powerful successor, the James Webb Telescope, to be launched in 2018.

Yes, maggots are creepy, crawly, and slimy. But that slime is a remarkable healing balm, used by battlefield surgeons for centuries to close wounds. Now, researchers say they've figured out how the fly larvae work their magic: They suppress our immune system. Maggots are efficient consumers of dead tissue. They munch on rotting flesh, leaving healthy tissue practically unscathed. Physicians in Napoleon's army used the larvae to clean wounds. In World War I, American surgeon William Baer noticed that soldiers with maggot-infested gashes didn't have the expected infection or swelling seen in other patients. The rise of penicillin in the 1940s made clinical maggots lessuseful,but they bounced back in the 1990s when antibiotic-resistant bacteria created a new demand for alternative treatments. In 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved maggot therapy as a prescription treatment. Although anecdotal reports suggested that maggots curb inflammation, no one had scientifically tested the idea.

So a team led by surgical resident Gwendolyn Cazander of Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands siphoned samples of maggot secretions from disinfected maggots in the lab and added them to donated blood samples from four healthy adults. The researchers then measured the levels of so-called complement proteins, which are involved inthe body's inflammatory response. Every blood sample treated with m a ggot secretions showed lower levels of complement proteins than did control samples — 99.9 percent less in the best case, the team reports in thecurrent issue of Wound Repair and Regeneration. For good measure, the team tested the maggot secretions again after a day, a week, and a month to determine their shelf life. They also boiled some. To their surprise, the secretionswere more effective after boiling and lost no potency after sitting on the shelf for a month. It's not surprising that maggot secretions would suppress the immune system, Cazander says. Otherwise, the larvae would probably be attacked by the body.

s us oi a ea, even i some axes o u By Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — With corporate tax rates and tax breaks up for grabs, chief executives

are personallystepping forward to lobby Congress and the White House on taxes, seeking to set priorities while conceding that some taxes will have to

go up. The business executives, while u n enthusiastic about higher taxes, say that avoiding the "fiscal cliff" is their No. I priority and that many other key issues can be taken care of in broader tax reform negotiations they hope would take place next year. "Most havefocused less on the particulars of a tax agreement and more on just the need to get something done to provide certainty," said Rep. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Budget Committee. The executives have been coming in waves, starting with a group brought in by Democrats last week to help push Republicans closer to making a deal. Although many of them supported GOP p residential candidate Mitt Romney, who opposed tax hikes, the executives are now ready to swallow higher rates for the wealthy and are leaning on both parties to compromise. "The idea that you're going to go over the cliff and work it out later, that is not really thinking about your customers," said Nicholas Akins, chief executive of Midwest utility giant American Electric Power. On Tuesday, more than 160 chief executivesfrom major companies signed a letter organized by the Business Round-

table pledging support for a "compromise" that would "result in market-credible spending reductions and revenue growth." On W e dnesday, s everal hedge fund executives met with White House aide Valerie Jarrett to discuss how to resolve the budget dispute, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Power-generation c o m panies jumped in, too, and unlike many groups they offered specifics. The chief executives from half a dozen of the nation's biggest utilities met Wednesday with Gene Sperling, head of the White House's National Economic Council, and fanned out to see 11 key members of the Senate in an effort to make sure new tax rates on dividends do not exceed the rates on capital gains. Both are now taxed at a 15 percent rate. A stalemate in talks about the fiscal cliff would mean that dividends start being treated as ordinary personal income taxable at the top marginal rate. That in turn would make it harder for utilities to raise capital for i nvestment, they said,and discourage retirees and others from buying utility stocks for substantial and steady dividends. But the executives said they would be satisfied if the rate for both dividends and capital gainswere raised to 20 percent, the level that has the support of the Senate Finance Committee and that would maintain parity between the two. Meanwhile, the A merican Wind E n ergy A s s ociation, which is seeking an extension of the production tax credit for wind farms, on Wednesday laid out a plan that would phase out subsidies to the industry by 2018. The group said that the f ull 2 .2-cents-a-kilowatt t a x creditshould be extended one more year then be ratcheted down 10 p ercentage points a year until 2017, then hold steady at 60 percent of current levels during 2018, and then

Liniversit Lisest e onors stem, an stress vanis es By Nick Anderson The Washington Post

LEXINGTON, Va. — At many colleges during finals week, students chug coffee in all-night cram sessions and worry about grueling schedules of back-to-back tests. Professors andteachingassistants circle exam rooms in an often fruitless quest to deter those tempted to cheat. Here at Washington and Lee University, an honor system rooted in Gen. Robert E. Lee's vision of the gentleman scholar means the campus is far more relaxed than the norm. Students choose when they want to take their finals, and faculty members leave them entirely u n monitored during the tests. This degreeoftrust,experts say, is a rarity in higher education and offers a counterpoint in the national debate about academic security. Schools across the country are wrestling with questions about cellphone access in exam rooms, Internet-facilitated plagiarism and identity verification for online students. This y ear, Harvard University faced a widely p ublicized c heating scandal involving student collaboration on take-home tests. Elements of W a s hington and Lee's methods can be found elsewhere. The U n iversity of Virginia and others have well-known honor systems. Many professorschoose not to proctor exams. But few schools replicate the format used here, with undergraduate final exams that are selfscheduled and unproctored. Haverford College, in Pennsylvania, has a similar testing system. "It gives us a lot of independence and a lot of leeway," Jackie Calicchio, 20, a thirdyear student f rom F l orida, said after she returned a history test Monday afternoon at Washington and Lee's Newcomb Hall. She dismissed any suggestion that th e c u lture of trust might invite abuse. "I

One-strike rule The rule here is simple and u nbending: one strike a n d you're out. Though faced with that severe p u nishment, s t udents do cheat from time to time at Washington and Lee. The 2 ,200-student p r i vate u n i versity in the Great Valley of Virginia makes no pretense of having reached academic utopia. Every year, a few students are forced to withdraw from the school after being found

guilty of lying, cheating or stealing under the student-run honor system. This week, a notice on campus bulletin boards revealed that a student who plagiarized a biology paper had left the school. "In the student's defense," the public notice said, "he/she said that he/she was under an i m mense amount of stress from events beyond his/her control that made it difficult for him/her to think

met are all good (people)."

Nowadays, honor is a selling point for the school, perhaps as powerful for recruiting as its tranquil campus, with a series of academic halls that form the historic Colonnade facing the chapel where Lee is buried. Trust runs so deep that students often leave backpacks, textbooks, cellphones and laptops for hours or even days on open desks in a publicly accessible library, assuming that their belongings will be there when they return. Details of exam procedures vary from building to building, but the essence of the finals week protocol — which

The university, which traces its history to the founding of a classical academy here in 1749, was named for George Washington after the nation's first president endowed it in 1796 with a $20,000 gift of stock. Lee, who was president of the college after the Civil War ended in 1865 until his death in 1870, is credited with articulating a statement on honor that still resonates. "Young gentleman, we have no printed rules here," Lee told a student named Wallace Colyar in 1866. "We have but one rule, and that is that every student must be a gentleman." Officials point to a cheating scandal in 1954 as a turning point for the university. Two football players were discovered thatyear to have cheated on a geology quiz. They then "blew the whistle on others," according to a 1998 alumni magazine article, revealing that some f ellow s t udents had access to master keys to professors'offices and stole and duplicated quizzes. The university, in the aftermath,

officials say has been in place since at least 1970 — is the same across campus: Students have three-hour windows in the morning and afternoon during which to take exams. They choose when they want to do so for each class. In Newcomb Hall's Room 105, a history department administrative assistant, Jennifer Ashworth, keeps a crate of about 300 manila envelopes stuffed with exams. Shortly before 2 p.m. Monday, Ashworth asked students to form two lines to pick up the tests. About 35 students, many clutching water bottles and coffee mugs, signed in on a spiral notebook, received their tests and dispersed to various spots in the building to take them. The exams were due

"You hear the same story three times in a row," DeLaney said, "the level of trust disappears.

I don't deal with that kind of stuff here. It's a real joy." Larry Hurd, a biology professor, said he spent years at a large public university "walking around the (testing) room, seeing if students had cheat sheets. I hated it." But he was resigned to proctoring as a necessary evil. W hen H ur d a r r i ved a t Washington and Lee two decades ago, he considered stories about honor and testtaking trust to be malarkey: "I didn't believe any of it. 'No way that's true.'" Now Hurd is a believer. Student-faculty relations, he said, are based on t r ust. "We're not enemies here. It's not us against them. There's an implied conflict when you monitor an exam.

NEW YORK — Here's looking at you, piano. No one would mistake you for Ingrid Bergman, though you and she shared a moment. And what a moment it was. It made you one of the most famous pianos in movie history. You must remember that: The flashback scene in Paris, the one that turned "Casablanca" from simply a war story into one of the most enduring cinematic love stories ever told. Now you are to be auctioned off a t S otheby's by an auctioneer who has sold other famous movie props — the "Rosebud" sled from "Citizen Kane," for example. Sotheby's expects you to sell from $800,000 to $1.2 million

The piano used in the1942 film "Casablanca" will be auctioned off today at Sotheby's in New York. in the auction today. That is 34 to 48 times what Bergman was paid for sharing top bill-

ing with Humphrey Bogart. And she really had to work. She was in scene after scene. You appeared in only one, in the Parisian cafe known with the words "La Belle Aurore" on the window. Warner Bros. used a different piano in the scenes in Rick's Cafe Americain. That was the one Bogart slipped those "letters of transit" into, not you. You were not on camera for long — only about one minute 10 seconds. And while you were seen, you were not heard. Dooley Wilson, who played Sam, moved his hands up and down your keyboard as he sang. But he was not actually hitting any notes. Somewhere off camera was a real pianist, performing on another piano. The piano is w eathered,

and a bit sluggish. It cannot handle the thrill of a trill, as Michael Feinstein — the pianist and singer who, with Ian Jackman, is the author of "The Gershwins and Me: A Personal History in 12 Songs" — found when he tried it at Sotheby's on Monday. "It's not gratifying to play," he said, "but that's not actually what it's about." "Casablanca" was shot in black and white, but in real life, the piano is green and tan. Sotheby's said it still had several coats of paint, apparently left over from appearances in other movies, when a Los Angeles collector bought it in the 1980s.He scraped offthe layers, revealing colors that "Casablanca" audiences could only guess at.

A.M. Ahad /The Associated Press

Garment workers manufacture clothing earlier this month in a factory on the outskirts of Dhaka, Bangladesh. The month before, a fire at a similar factory killed 112 people.

Breed and Scott Mayerowitz The Associated Press

About a year and a half before a fire at a clothing factory in Bangladesh killed 112 people in November, executives from Wal-Mart, Gap and other big retailers met nearby to discuss ways to prevent the unsafe working conditions that have made such tragedies common. Representati ves from a dozen of the world's largest retailers and fashion labels gathered with labor groups and local officials in April 2011 at the threeday meeting held in the 15-story, glass-walledheadquarters of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers & Exporters Association in Dhaka, the capital. They were considering a firstof-its-kind contract that would govern fire safety inspections at thousands of Bangladeshi factories making T-shirts, blazers, and other clothes Americans covet. Under the terms of the agreement, eachcompany would be required to publicly report fire hazards at factories, pay factory owners more to make repairs and provide atleast $500,000 over two years for the effort.

They would also sign a legally binding agreement that would make them liable when there's a factory fire. Discussionsseemed promising. Then, on the second day, Sridevi Kalavakolanu, director of ethical sourcing for WalMart Stores Inc., spoke up. "In most casesvery extensive and costly m o difications w o uld need tobe undertaken to some factories," Kalavakolanu was quoted as saying in the minutes of the meeting obtained by The Associated Press. "It is not financially feasible ... to make such investments." T he statement f ro m t h e world's largest retailer, with $447 billion in annual revenue, essentially sucked the air out of the room, witnesses said. It also set the tone for the rest of the meeting, which ended the next day without a single company agreeing to the plan. "I think that really had quite an impact on ... everybody who was in the room," said Ineke Z eldenrust, who was at t h e meeting representing the workers' rights group Clean Clothes Campaign. "It was quite clear that we werevery far from a solution." The retailers' meeting and its aftermath highlighted a central issue for the $1 trillion-dollar global clothing industry: What role retailers play — and should play — in making working conditions safer at the factories that manufacture their apparel. Retailers often claim they know little or nothing about conditions at factories, because the long and intricate manufacturing chain runs through several contractors and subcontractors. Wal-Mart and others whose garments were found in the ruins of the fatal Tazreen Fashions Ltd. on Nov. 24 say they had severed ties with the factoryor were unaware their clothes were being produced there. The retail industry hasn't released estimates on how much it would cost to upgrade Bangladeshi factories to Western standards. But one advocacy group, The Worker Rights Consortium, puts the cost at about $1.5 billion to $3 billion over the next fiveyears.That's about 3 per-

Building fires have led to more than 600 garment work deaths in Bangladesh since 2005, according to research by the advocacy group International Labor Rights Forum. cent of the $95 billion expected to be spent on clothes manufacturing in the country during that time. It also amounts to about 10 cents added onto the cost of a T-shirt.

Safety steps taken Major retailers such as WalMart, Gap Inc. and Swedish c lothing chain H & M h a v e stepped up their own fire safety efforts,butthey'vestoppedshort of industry-wide standards that would hold them legally and financially accountable for fire hazardsatfactories. Gap, which owns the Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic chains, turned down the proposal because it did not want to be vulnerable to lawsuits, according to Bobbi Silten, senior vice president of global responsibility. The retailer also did not want to pay factories more money to help with safety upgrades, she said. "It seemed very challenging to agree to," she said. "We don't own these factories and we'renot the exclusive brands. It would be a different picture if we owned the factories." Since then, Gap has hired its own chief fire inspector to oversee factories that produce Gap brands in Bangladesh. In addition to about $1 million spent on safety measures in Bangladesh in the last two years, Gap has committedto another $2 million to ensure that people laid off because offire safety repairs are still paid. The San Francisco-

films for suppliers. H&M has also started to do electrical assessments at the factories it does business with, an expense shared by the factories. Wal-Mart, which ranks second in the number of apparel orders it places in Bangladesh, has also taken new steps. This year Wal-Mart i s r e quiring regular audits of factories, fire drills and mandated fire safety training for all levels of factory management. Spokesman Kevin Gardner said Wal-Mart's comments duringthe April2011 meeting, which were jointly edited by Wal-Mart and Gap in the minutes obtained by the AP, were taken "out of context." Auditors hired by Wal-Mart, based in Bentonville, Ark., inspected the Tazreen factory in 2011, giving it an "orange" or high-risk rating. Months later, the third-party auditor did a second inspection, giving it another "orange" rating. And early this year the factory was no longer authorized to produce merchandise for the retail giant. The company said a supplierwho has since been fired — had moved Wal-Mart production there without its knowledge.

Activist skepticism


• •







But Prakash Sethi, a professor of management at City University of New York, is skeptical that Wal-Mart has so little power or knowledge when it comes to safety conditions at factories. "How long will it take WalMart to identify a factory if they were making shirts or shorts that were uneven, or where the sewing was below acceptable quality? Less than two days," he said. "They would immediately figure out which factory, where it's being made and put a stop to it. Why is it that they can't do it about the workers?" Labor activists also doubt that the safety plans designed by retailers themselves will do thejob. "Voluntary codes of conduct are useless," said Charles Kernaghan, executivedirector of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, who is best known for exposing the use of Honduran child labor to produce clothing for celebrity Kathie Lee Gifford's line in the mid-1990s. "The monitoring is

At a meeting with about 100 members of the GOP-controlled legislature in Kansas — a state whose Republican governor, Sam Brownback, rejected the state-run option last month — Laszewski urged lawmakers to consider forming a partnership with the federal government rather than opting for an exchange entirely run by federal officials.

Many conservatives say the health care law is so objectionable that Republicans should not do anything to help implement it. The libertarian Cato Institute's Michael Cannon has been crisscrossing the country urging state leaders to steer clear of the exchanges. He said that the law grants states so little flexibility as to be meaningless. Such arguments have resonated with Republican leaders in Oklahoma. The state's attorney general, Scott Pruitt, has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court challenging the law. Last m onth, O k l ahoma Gov. Mary Fallin announced her intention to forgo operating an exchangebecause"any exchange that is health-carelaw compliant will necessarily be 'state-run' in name only and would require Oklahoma resources, staff and tax dollars to implement." Still, a handful of state GOP leaders have come around to Holtz-Eakin's argument that setting up a state-based e xchange i s b e t ter t h a n handing over control to the federal government. Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, after much publicagonizing, announced hissupport fora state-run exchange this week.

Pave pathup orpu liccomment By Dylan J. Darling The Bulletin

A Deschutes National Forest plan to pave a path between Sunriver and the Lava Lands Visitor Center is up for public review. The forest has completed an environmental review for the path and Thursday opened amonth-long comment window onthe documents, said Scott McBride, recreationsupervisor forthe Deschutes and manager of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. The Deschutes first proposed the path in 2009. "It essentially improves access to the National Forest

and the National Monument," he said. Construction of the 10-footwide path, which will cost just under $2.3 million, is set for next year. McBride said the plan is to have the asphalt path finished before snow falls next winter. The path would be about 18 miles south of Bend and just northeast of Sunriver. The path will be open for nonmotorized use and could be particularly attractive to casual bicyclists. "The grade is gentle," McBride said. A paved spur off the main path would lead to the Benham Falls East Picnic Area. SeePath /B2

As the largest building in downtown Redmond, the 84-year-oldRedmond Hotel is an iconic structure. But now the city is looking at whether a renovated, fully utilized hotel could become a catalyst for investment in the urban core.

"We're just now starting to find ourselves again. But a hotel is a must downtown, it's the only 'destination' down there."

The "New" Redmond Hotel, as it says on the vintage neon sign out front, was built in 1928 after its predecessor, a two-story wooden structure, burned in a fire that took several downtown businesses with it — including the nearby Oregon Hotel. The Redmond Hotel was hailed upon construction as a premier destination hotel, with 43,000 square feet of guestrooms, a restaurant, library, banquet/dance hall and grand lobby.

She had to find alternative housing for some of the residents, many on Social Security or public assistance, then get to work ripping out all the deteriorated flooring, furnishings and plumbing.

With the exception of a handful of rooms leased as office space, the hotel never reopened. It is currently on the market, with a $2.7 million price tag. "When we bought it we were uncertain about what to do with the upstairs,'" says Evert. "We spent a lot on renovations, trying to bring back the history by stripping sheetrock off the brick, exposing the 14-foot ceilings and removing fluorescent lights." SeeHotel /B3

Pilar Ash's attorney Kevin Lafky called the sheriff's employees' behavior unacceptable.

According to the lawsuit, in January 2012 Pilar Ash and her ex-husband, Deschutes County Sheriff's deputy Joah Ash, negotiated a custody arrangement allowing the woman to move to Nevada with their two children. The three were to move Feb. 25; five days before the move Joah Ash filed paperwork toprevent them from moving. On Feb. 22, the lawsuit alleges, Pilar Ash received text messages from the pair's 11-year-old daughter saying Joah Ash and his father were plotting to hide her 4-year-old brother. Pilar Ash called the county non-emergency line, requesting a deputy meet her when she picked up the kids. She then spoke with a deputy and explained her situation, the lawsuit states. After speaking with a watch commander,the deputy allegedly told Pilar Ash the Sheriff's Office wouldn't get involved. When the woman arrived at her ex-husband's house to pick up the children, Joah Ash allegedly told her she couldn't have the kids, the lawsuit states. Eventually the 11-year-old came out of the house and got to Pilar Ash's home, telling her the 4-year-old was being hidden at their grandfather's house. Pilar Ash went to pick up her son at the grandfather's house, but no one was home, and when she called the watch commander was told by dispatchers she had

been "red-flagged," and no one would talk to her, the lawsuit alleges. According to the lawsuit, she eventually called Deputy District Attorney Beth Bagley, who sent the Oregon State Police to the woman's house. The next morning, the lawsuit states, Ash and her attorney brought a writ of assistance signed by Judge Wells Ashby to the Sheriff's Office. A deputy there allegedly tore up the writ and said she would not execute it. SeeSuit/B2

There, a crossing arm and warning l i ghts wo u ld be installed. These improvements, as well as a bu r ied power line needed to supply electricity to them, added to the cost of the project. The path wo u l d f o l l o w the routes of ex i s ting fo r est roads, mainly a frontage road between road 9702 and a lava flow. The Forest Service would widen the roads and pave them, toppling 235 trees to make way for the path.

making upgrades and waiting for the economy to improve. "If this same building were in the Pearl District (in Portland) or Bend it would be a big hit," says Evert. "Lots of peoplehave tried to make a go of this hotel, but the rehab of downtown Redmond has been slower." It's the chicken-or-egg question of developing one site to promote development in other sites that city o f f icials are contemplating. "In the past, Redmond has deployed urban renewal funds for infrastructure like roads but the main reason for urban renewal is to prompt private investment," s ai d H e a ther Richards, Redmond community development director. "We looked back (at infrastructure investments) and asked 'was it successful?' But it seemed we still had plenty of blight downtown." When the city's urban renewal district was extended last year, the hotel was identified as a potential target for up to $2 million in public funds, given its importance in the downtown economy. "The big question is: What are the barriers to investment downtown?" said R i chards. "What we discovered is that with the hotel being such a large piece of downtown and mostly vacant, it was actually bringing down the amount of investment in the area." A p a r t nership b e t ween public and private entities can work several ways, according to Richards. Sometimes urban renewal agencies purchase land and seek investors who will develop it t o p r edetermined specifications with the land being the public's investment. Or public funds can be spent on certain aspects of the development, usually t h ose with specific public benefits. "For example, limited parking at the hotel hasn't been penciling out for investors who might need to buy more land

He and his partners purchased a half-block at Forest and Seventh Street for additional parking, but it is not adjacent to any part of the hotel.

The study was not limited to the building's use as hotel, rather it looked at three scenarios for development: apartments, office space and lodging.

of mortgage filing fees in recent years, but suing to collect them could becounterproductive. That's because the collection effort could slow recovery of the housing industry. The region — including government bank accounts — has more to gain from a healthy real estate market than from a lawsuit about filing fees. The complaint is that Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, known as MERS, has transferred ownership of millions of home loans without filing them with county governments and paying relevant fees. An appellate court ruling has largely stalled foreclosures in Oregon because of the MERS filing issue, preventing the marketplace from clearing that inventory so the housing industry can recover. Additional legal action relating to the possible uncollected fees could further delay resolution of the MERS issue, slowing economic improvement. Deschutes County c o mmissioners and legal counsel considered theproblem of unpaid fees Wednesday, discussing the possibility of joining a planned Multnomah County suit or filing one of its own. Multnomah has authorized but not yet filed its suit, which alleges that county lost $3

million to $24 million in unpaid recording fees. Lane County is also concerned about lost fee income. Deschutes doesn't yet know if or how much it has lost, so action is at least six months away, according to Commissioner Tony DeBone. Deschutes collects a $48 fee, plus $5 per additional page on every mortgage document filed. Commissioner Tammy Baney said Deschutes may have lost money, with MERS listed as the beneficiary on thousands of county homes between 2002 and 2007. The Oregon Court of Appeals ruling related to the legality of a Clackamas County f oreclosure proceeding involving MERS. The court agreedwith a homeowner, who argued MERS could not act as a beneficiary because it had no financial interest in the home. The case is now before the Oregon Supreme Court. Deschutes County's approach of researching while watching what happens in the courts seems a wise approach. When decision time comes, commissioners should give serious consideration to the benefits of speedy economic recovery versus collection of possible missed fees.

Highway project gets message fromnature M

other Nature has been sending a message about U.S. Highway 20 west of Eddyville. It's heartening to read that the Oregon Department of Transportation is listening. Since 2005, ODOT has been trying to replace a 10-mile stretch of the highway in the Coast Range between Corvallis and the coast. Starting with an original estimate of $140 million, it succeeded in building about half of the roadway, but the bridges to support the middle section were undermined by landslides and had to be destroyed. Today's estimate is $400 million, up sharply from $310 million just two months ago, according to a report in The (Eugene) Register-Guard. In addition to the landslides in the valleys, ODOT is now detecting soil movement along the mountain cuts where the roadway would run. "There's large cracks forming that (mean) literally the whole mountain in about three or four spots (is) potentially coming down on the roadway," ODOT's Paul Mather told a Senate committee

Tuesday, according to the RegisterGuard. To continue with the project, ODOT would need to install drains and buttress the cuts.

The projectseeks to replace a treacherous winding road that is at a lower elevation and not affected by the landslides. The new roadway was originally planned with a "design-build" model that turned over design to a contractor, who later returned $15 million of the $173 million ODOT had paid and was freed from the project. Later this month, ODOT will ask the Oregon Transportation Commission for $176 million to complete the project, but it will also present other options, including one that would widen and straighten the existing roadway instead. The original desire to eliminate the safety issues of the existing roadway was a good one, but the nature of the landscape clearly was not sufficiently understood. Unless ODOT can make a convincing case — far stronger than in the past — it's time to accept Mother Nature's message and abandon the realignment.

Suggestions for repairing Obamacare: Get rid of mandate By John C. Goodman fter the recent election, virtually al com m e ntators quickly concluded that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is safe;Republicans are powerless to stop it. The trouble is: Obamacare is a deeply flawed law. Here are five essential changes that could fix it: First, subsidize all insurance the same way. The way g overnment currently subsidizes health insurance is arbitrary and unfair. Employees w it h e m p l oyer-provided insurance get that benefit tax free. There is almost no subsidy, however, for people who must purchase insurance on their own. Under Obamacare the subsidies become even more arbitrary.Although the new law creates generous tax credits for low- and moderate-income families who buy insurance through the n ewly c r eated insurance exchanges, the subsidy in an exchange can be as much as $12,000 higher than the same fam-

ily would get if they received the exact same insurance through an

against very large medical expenses. But once we have that we face a employer. perverse incentive to get additional This is why many companies are — even wasteful — coverage beconsidering changing the employ- cause Uncle Sam is subsidizing the ment status of their low-wage em- extra premium. ployees from full time to part time Obamacare leaves these incen— so they can escape the require- tives in place and creates similar inment to provide insurance, while centives in the exchanges. making their employees eligible There is a better way. Make the for subsidized insurance from an subsidy a f i x e d a m ount, f unded exchange. through a tax credit — that is, a For higher-income employees, the dollar-for-dollar reduction in your arbitrariness goes in the opposite tax bill. For example, offer a $2,500 direction. They get the current law's credit against the first $2,500 of generous ta x s u b sidies t h rough health insurance premiums. For a t heir jobs, but no subsidy in t h e family of four, the credit would be exchange. about $8,000.These credits would All insurance should get the same be "refundable," a technical term tax relief, regardless of where it is meaning people would get the subobtained. sidy even if they owe no income Second, make the subsidy a fixed taxes. sum "tax credit." Under the current Third: Create and fund a safety system, there is no l i mit on h ow net option.Under Obamacare, 30 much health insurance we can remillion people are expected to receive through an employer with un- main uninsured. What happens to taxed dollars. Most of us get insur- them'? ance because we want protection If people turn down the offer of

a tax credit, make that credit available to safety net institutions that provide care to people without insurance. If people can't pay their medical bills, these funds would be there as abackstop. Under this ar-

rangement, money follows people. Fourth, don't let people "game" the system. Obamacare has a requirement (a mandate) to obtain health insurance, enforced with a fine. However, the fines are small compared to insurance costs. There isn't much the IRS can do to enforce the mandate, so the agency has announced that it has no plans to vigorously enforce it. This will leave individuals with strong incentives to game the system by remaining uninsured while they're healthy, obtain insurance afterthey get sick, and drop coverage after the medical bills are paid and they're healthy again. If large numbers of people do this, insurance will become prohibitively expensive. The answer hereisto give people a one-time opportunity to obtain

insurance on a g u aranteed issue basis, regardless of their health conditions. If they turn down the offer and apply later, insurers would be able to consider their medical condition and charge them a higher premium that reflects the full expected cost of their care. Finally: Get rid of the mandate. With the first four fixes in place, there's no n eed fo r a m a n date. Instead, there will be a strong financial incentive to obtain health insurance. Government offers everyone a generous subsidy to buy health insurance in the form of lower taxes. If they turn down the subsidy, they

pay higher taxes. That's not different in principle from the current system, except that the reforms suggested here would make that arrangement fairer and more rational. — John C.

The bar code would never have developed as it did without a chain of events noteworthy even in the annals of invention etiology: Had Woodland not been a Boy Scout, had he not logged hours on the beach and had his father not been quite so afraid of organized crime, the code would very likely not have been invented in the form it was, if at

all. As a Boy Scout, Woodland learned Morse code, the spark that would ignite his invention. After spending World War II on the Manhattan Project at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, Woodland resumed his studies at the Drexel Institute of Technology in Philadelphia (now Drexel University), earning a bachelor's degree in 1947. As an unde r g raduate, Woodland perfected a system for delivering elevator music efficiently. He planned to pursue the project commercially, but his father forbade it: Elevator music, he said, was controlled by the mob. The younger Woodland returned toDrexel for a master's degree. In 1948, a local supermarket executive visited the campus, where he implored a dean to develop an efficient means of encoding product data. The dean demurred, but Silver, a fellow graduate student who overheard their conversation, was intrigued. He conscripted Woodland. An early idea of theirs, which involved printing product information in fluorescent ink and reading it with ultraviolet light, proved unworkable. But Woodland, convinced that a solution was close at hand, quit graduate school to devote himself to the problem. He holed up at his grandparents' home in Miami Beach, where he spent the winter of 1948-49 in a chair in the sand, thinking. To represent i nformation visually, he realized, he would need a code. The only code he knew was the one he had learnedin the Boy Scouts. What would happen, Woodland wondered one day, if Morse code, with its elegant simplicity and limitless combinatorial potential, were adapted graphically? He began trailing his fingers idly through the sand. "What I'm going to tell you sounds like a fairy tale," Woodland told Smithsonian magazine in 1999. "I poked my four fingers into the sand and for whatever reason — I d i dn't know — I pulled my hand toward me and drew four lines. I said: 'Golly! Now I have four lines, and they could be wide lines and narrow lines instead of dots and dashes.'"

Pedestrians cannot resist getting close to Thursday's 'king tide' cresting along the San Francisco Embarcadero. The tide measured 7.2 at the Golden Gate and was the highest of the year. Tides are expected to peak during the next several days.

Joseph Woodland, who six decadesago drew a setoflines in the sand and in the process c onceived the m odern b a r code, died Sunday at his home in Edgewater, N.J. He was 91. His daughter Susan Woodland confirmed the death. A retired mechanical engineer, Woodland was a graduate student when he and a classmate,Bernard Silver, created a technology — based on a printedseries ofwide and narrow striations — that encoded consumer-product information for optical scanning. Their idea, developed in the late 1940s and patented 60 years ago this fall, turned out to be ahead of its time. But it would ultimately give rise to the universalproduct code, or UPC, as the staggeringly prevalent rectangular bar code is officially known. The code now adorns tens of millions of different items, scanned in r e tail establishments around the world at the rate of more than 5 billion a

Wildfire epidemicleavesstates searching forsolutions, funds By Jim Malewitz

SCOTTSDALE, A r iz. — To some people living in the drought-scorched A m e rican West, it may seem like the fires will never stop raging. Months after forests and grasslands in much of the re-

gion usually cease smoldering for the year, smoke still wafts across parts o f C o l orado's Rocky M o u ntain N a t ional Park. Hundreds of residents living nearby have returned to their homes, but firefighters have not fully contained the blaze, which they hope will be the last in Colorado's worst fire season ever. At one point this summer,

14 major fires were ripping through the state simultaneously. They included Colorado's most devastating single fire in history, the 29-square-mile Waldo Canyon fire, which devottred 350 homes in just four hours. Wildfires have scorched almost 9.2 million acres of U.S. land this year, the third largest one-year burn in the country's recorded h i story. T h e y've claimed lives, destroyed homes, killed animals and r avaged their habitats, spewing toxins that settle in water and on land. The fires have pushed government resources to their limits, and in some cases beyond them.

Ongoing budgetary struggles and the reality that the West is getting hotter and drier, stoking more frequent and destrttctive fires, are prompting fire officials to ponder ways to pack a better punch with fewer dollars. "We've got to do more with less," says Harris Sherman, undersecretary for natural resources and th e e nvironment at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The federal government has spent about $1.45 billion on fire suppression this year, according to the Department of Agriculture, far surpassing a budget of $950 million. Most of that money, however, has been spent reacting to fires, leaving

fewer dollars for prevention efforts. Of the 193million acres of forest managed by the U.S. Forest Service, as many as 82 million need to be treated to lower the fire risk. But it can cost $2,000 per acreto remove the buildup of fire-fueling materials, such as felled logs, certain grasses and low-lying branches. "They're spending so much fighting fires that they don't have the resources to prevent them," Rod Nichols, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Forestry, told Stateline. In Oregon, says Nichols, it's not uncommon for out-of control fires that start on federal lands to jump onto private lands, meaning the state has to pitch in its scarce resources — using money the federal goverrtment does not reimburse. Through mid-August, more than 1,000 fires in Utah had cost the state about $16 million — more than five times what the legislature had allocated, The Associated Press reported earlier this year. Washington state spent $19.8 million suppressing fires, far surpassing its $1L2 million budget. In Idaho, where fire tore through 1.25 million acres of land this year, federal and state agencies combined to spend about $200 million. "This impacts any governor's budget," says Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter. "That's less m o ney that I have for social services. That's less money I have for education." In Oregon, officials are trying to save on long-term costs by attacking small fires aggressively from the outset — with fire engines, bulldozers and hand crews, often supported by water-carrying helicopters and air tankers that drop fire retardant — in hopes of squelching the fires before they become more destructive and costly. Proposed legislation would bolsterthoseinitialresources. "If we can allow even one fewer large fire, that frees up the potential to save millions of dollars," Nichols says. But as budget struggles con-

tinue in several states, more firefighting resources — even those meant to cut long-term costs — may not be an option. Western governors h a ve asked formore federalhelp,requesting that Congress fully restorethe federal government's "Flame Fund," which was set up in2009 to ensure the Forest Service had enough money to fight fires without tapping into funds for other programs. That account has run dry, following the 2011 debt standoff and subsequent budget cuts. But with Congress still wran-

gling over how to avoid going over its self-made "fiscal cliff," few if any officials are expecting it to deliver more help. They can't count on Mother Nature to d eliver long-term relief, either. Hot, dry weather continues to grip much of the U.S., with the West bearing the brunt of it. As the climate continues to change, researchers expect those fire-stoking conditions to worsen. uWe are seeing the fire season today last tw o m onths longer," says Sherman, the Department o f A g r i culture undersecretary. A study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, found that rising temperatures will likely cause m ore fires across most ofN orth America and Europe over the next 30 years. "In the long run, we found what most fear — increasing fire activity across large parts of the planet," said lead author Max Moritz, upon the study's releasein June. "But the speed and extent to which some of

these changes may happen is

What's more, wildfires — at least in some part — are contributing to climate change. In the western U.S., wildfires release as much as 1.3 percent of thegreenhouse gases emitted from burning fossil fuels, according to a study from the U.S. Geological Survey, released last week. Those emissionsare expected to increase by as much as 80 percent over the next four decades.

Watson returns as U.S. captain NEW YORK — Weary

wint e

of two decades of defeat in Europe, the

Americans are breaking from precedent with a

captain uniquely suited


for the 2014 Ryder Cup in Scotland. Tom Watson will be byfarthe oldest man to fill the role and the first repeat Watson captain for the U.S. since1987. But he's also the last American to lead the team to victory on the road, and he knows how to win in the blustery Scottish weather.

LOS ANGELES — ESPN's "Octomom" family of networks hopes you enjoy this year's cavalcade of commercials and center snaps as it furiously tries to secure the two games it doesn't broadcast. Conspicuously missing from the lineup is Ohio State

(12-0) vs. Louisiana Tech (9-3)

"We are just really

tired of losing the Ryder Cup," PGA of America President Ted Bishop

said Thursday during a news conference at the Empire State Building. It won't be easy.

The Americans have lost seven of the past

nine Ryder Cupsand have not wonaway from home since 1993, when Watson was the captain at The Belfry in England.

Oregon advances to title match LOUISVILLE, Ky. Liz Brenner had17 kills and17 digs to help fifth-

By Mark Morical The Bulletin

Josh Dirksen and friends have spent the last several days digging in the snow at Mt. Bachelor ski area. Building banked slalom courses with only shovels and rakes is hard work, but Dirksen believes it is well worth the effort. The sixth a n nual D i r ksen Derby snowboard rally race is set for this weekend, and more than 300 snowboarders are expected to attend. Boarders will race down parallel slalom courses that include berms, jumps and other features. This year, the two coursesare located near the Carrousel chairlift close to Sunrise Lodge. "Every year we get better at building the berms," Dirksen says. "We're getting really good. We have about 15 people, on

average, digging for six days. Everybody

is a volunteer. It's really satisfying when

you've got 15 guys working on building a berm, and in an hour, the thing is triple overhead." Designed as a fun, laid-back event, the Dirksen Derby brings local snowboard-

ers togetherto raise money for one of their own: Tyler Eklund, a Bend boarder who was paralyzedfrom the neck down in a snowboarding accident near Lake Tahoe in 2007. Dirksen, a pr o s n owboarder who splits his time between Switzerland and Bend, founded the event a few months after Eklund's accident and has helped the derby evolve into a weekend celebration of not just racing, but of music, art, and the Central Oregon snowboarding community. "It's incredibly fun to see how many people are involved, not just racing but doing art and thinking of clever ways to make the weekend more special for Tyler and everybody involved," Dirksen says. "That's definitely exciting for me to see." Dirksen, 36, calls Eklund, now 20, "a positive kid who always has a smile on his face." "Every time I talk to him he's making the most of it," Dirksen says. «His life definitely gets better. In seven years of knowing him, I've never seen him

unhappy." See Derby/C6

The Associated Press PORTLAND — Rookie guard Damian Lillard had a career-high 29 points and the Portland Trail Blazers handed the San Antonio Spurs their second straight loss with a 98-90 victory Thursday night. The Spurs, who have lost only six games this season, trailed by as many as 12 points in the second half but Manu Ginobili's layup cut the deficit to 89-85. J.J. Hickson answered for the Blazers with a running hook that made it 91-85 with 2:36 left. Danny Green hit a 3-pointer to pull the Spurs closer again, but Portland clung to the lead and Nicolas Batum — who has been bothered by a sore back — made a3 that gave Portland a 9690 advantage with I:08 left. Batum hit two free throws with 8 seconds to go for the final margin. It was Lillard's 13th game this season with 20 or more points. LaMarcus Aldridge added 22 points for the Blazers and Hickson finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds. Tony Parker had 21 points for the Spurs, who were coming off a 99-96 loss at Utah on Wednesday night that snapped a five-game winning streak. The Blazers were coming off a 92-74 victory over Toronto on Monday during which Portland set an NBA record by going zero for 20 from 3point range. The Blazers were without starter Wesley Matthews for the second straight game. Matthews strained his left hip in the fourth quarter of a loss last Saturday to the Kings. The injury put him on the bench in street clothes for the first time in his four-year NBA career. He had played in 250 straight games, second-most among active players behind Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. Matthews was replaced by Victor Claver against the Spurs. Batum also missed the victory over the Raptors, but he started on Thursday. Luke Babbitt made a 3-pointer to put Portland in front 32-25. But former Trail Blazer Patty Mills hit a 23-foot jumper to tie it 32-all, and Green added a fast-break layup to give San An-

tonio the lead. It didn't last long, however, and Portland reclaimed the lead with Will Barton's dunk and another 3 by Babbitt. Lillard made a long jumper to end the first half with the Blazers up 49-45. His pull-up jumper made it 61-57 midway through a tight third quarter. Already-hurting Portland got a scare a short time later when Aldridge fell hard to the court and took a few moments to get up. Lillard and Babbitt each hit long jumpers and Sasha Pavlovic added a 3-pointer to extend the lead to 72-61. Lillard had 23 points in the third quarter alone. Parker's layup and jumper pulled the Spurs to 85-81 with 5:16 left. San Antonio is 4-2 on the back end of backto-back games. The other loss came against the Miami Heat on Nov. 29, notable because coach Gregg Popovich did not play starters Tim Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Green. The Spurs were subsequently fined by the NBA.

Angels landHamilton for 125 million By Beth Harris The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Josh Hamilton is heading to the Los Angeles Angels, lured with a $125 million, five-year contract that steps u p t h e m i g r ation of high-profile stars to Southern California. The Angels persuaded the free-agent outfielder to leave the Texas Rangers with their third big-money offseason

signing in as many years. Hamilton heads to Anaheim after first baseman Albert Pujols came West for $240 million last December along with pitcher C.J. Wilson — Hamilton's Texas teammate — for $77.5 million. Still, the Angels failed to make the playoffs for the third straight year. They had bulked up their pitching staff earlier in the offseason with the additions of pitchers Joe Blanton and Tommy Hanson, along with relievers Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson. G eneral m a nager J e rr y D i p o t o had said Wednesday that he didn't think a major move was "imminent or required." But owner Arte Moreno pulled off another coup by getting Hamilton. The 2010 AL MVP, Pujols and AL Rookie of the Year Mike Trout combined for 103 home runs and 316 RBIs last season. "It's a great day to be an Angel/Angel fan!" Wilson said on his Twitter account. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Hamilton had reached a deal with the AL West rival Angels. Two people familiar with the talks disclosed the amount and length of the contract, speaking on c ondition o f a n onymity because the agreement was not yet final. Hamilton's $25 million average salary matches Philadelphia first baseman Ryan Howard for the second-highest in baseball, trailing only Alex Rodriguez's $27.5 million average with the New York Yankees. Since the contract wasn't final, the Angels didn't comment publicly. The team said in a statement, "We continue to look for ways to improve our team. As soon as we have something formal to announce, we will do so." Moreno and manager Mike Scioscia didn't immediately respond to phone messages. The Angels allowed free agent outfielder Torii Hunter to sign with Detroit, and he reacted to his former team's latest move on his Twitter account. "I was told money was tight but I guess the Arte had money hidden under a Mattress. Business is business but don't lie," Hunter wrote. He followed up with the comment,

"Great signing for the Angels. One of the best players in baseball." Texas had hoped to re-sign Hamilton, who led the Rangers to consecutive World Seriesappearances in 2010 and 2011. They made a $13.3 million qualifying offer at the Nov. 2 deadline, en-

decision to make on where in the batting order to slot in Pujols, Trout and Hamilton, a five-time All-Star. He has a.260 career average at Angel Stadium with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 150 at-bats. Daniels met with Moye last week at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn., and had talked about the parameters of a new contract along with numbers. While Daniels wouldn't get into any specifics, he said his understanding is the deal with the Angels "is certainly more guaranteed money." T he move keeps Hamilton in t h e same division with plenty of opportunities to play against his team — the first one coming fast next season. After the Rangers open with three games at new division foe Houston, they play their first home series April 5-7 against the Angels.

Better than ever, Be in eense, Ben as eatEa es Vikings' Peterson is not done yet By Rob Maaddt

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA — No w t h e C i ncinnati Bengals can focus on that other Pennsylvania team. Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and Cincinnati beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 on Thursday night.

By Dave Campbell The Associated Press

E DEN P R A I RIE, M i n n . — The injury, torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in A d r ian Peterson's left knee, couldn't have been much more devastating for an NFL running back. This is a game where splits econds, whether an e x t r a burst of acceleration or a stopon-a-dime cut,can mean the difference between reaching the end zone and being tackled at the line of scrimmage. Reconstructive surgery can quickly turn dominant players into ordinary ones in a league with don't-blink-short careers. Peterson has always been one ofa kind, though. On one hand, returning for M i nnesota's season opener roughly 8'/~ months after his operation and r ushing for 1,600 yards through 13 games is an almost-unfathomable accomplishment. On the flip side, this year for him has simply fallen in line with a long list of feats for this once-in-a-generation package of power, determination and speed. "You can't be surprised anymore," Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt said. "I've seen him do everything. You've just come to expect that kind of stuff out of him now." There are a few other tricks Peterson just might be able to pull off season, too: Become th e s eventh 2,000-yard rusher in history and carry the Vikings to the playoffs, without a competent passing attack in a l e ague dominated by strong-armed, super-accurate quarterbacks. — Win the Comeback Player of the Year award in a season when Peyton Manning's successful return from a neck problem that required a year off has already put Denver in the playoffs and thrust the 36year-old quarterback to the forefront of the Most Valuable Player discussion. With t y pical u n f l inching confidence, Peterson said in a recent interview with The AssociatedPress he's expecting to win the comeback award. " It w a s something t h at flashed across my mind, me knowing what I was going to be able to do, being where I'm at now," Peterson said. "I kind of have that in the bag, especially how I've been telling

people I'm going to come back strongerand betterthan ever. So I've prettymuchzip-locked that in a bag and sealed it. It'll be cool to win it." Manning has thrown f or 30 touchdowns against only 10 interceptions, ranking in the top 10 in a l most every passing category in the NFL. After four procedures to fix a nerve problem in his neck that weakened hi s t h r owing arm and switching cities, teammates, coaches and

p laybooks, Manning


transformed the Broncos into a real-deal Super Bowl contender. Peterson w a s h u r t on Christmas Eve, so he missed only one game last season, which will likely count at least a few votes against him. Quarterbacks have their hands on the ball every play, too, helping Manning's cause. Plus, Manning's injury had the potential to be just as debilitating to his job as Peterson's. B altimore r u n ning b a c k Ray Rice, for his part, did all he couldto consider Peterson before Manning's case won him over. "In my history of playing football, I've never seen a guy come back that fast off of an ACL. I know he's a beast, but ... when you hear about neck injuries, you u s ually h e ar about someone being done for their career," Rice said. "No matter what it was, the guy had surgery, lost all his strength in his arm, had to gain it back." Manning insisted he's too focused on his own team and his opponents to have paid much attention to Peterson in the other conference. "But what a heck of a player, what a heck of an athlete," he said.

The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game

GenevieveRoss/The Associated Press

Minnesota Vikings runnlng back Adrlan Peterson has rushed for 1,600 yards less than 9 months after an operatlon for torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. P eterson, too, s ai d h e ' s b een impressed with M a nning's exploits when he's had the rare chance to watch at home on television, though not enough to concede the award, of course. That's how he got t o t h i s p o int, after all. Relying on his top-flight medical treatment, his lifelong Christian faith and his freakishly athletic genes, Peterson refused to accept that he couldn't come back from the injury even better than before. That, he's done. With 161 more yards rushing, he'll be at his career high. "The injury that I had, the position that I play and what I've done, it speaks for itself," Peterson said. "Not to take anything away from Peyton Manning, but i f y o u 're r eally looking at it, it speaks for itself." Maybe if h e z ooms past that 2,000-yard mark with a strong final three games he'll even wind up with the MVP award. Of the six previous 2,000yard rushers, three of them either won or shared MVP honors that year: O.J. Simpson in 1973, Barry Sanders in 1997 and Terrell Davis in 1998. Two of them, coincidentally, watched Manning take the MVP award instead: Jamal Lewis in 2003 and Chris Johnson in 2009. Eric Dickerson has the all-time singleseason record of 2,105 yards rushing in 1984. Dan Marino was the MVP that year. "The M VP , m a n , t h a t 's something that I 've always wanted to grab. I work hard. I want to be the best player to play this game, so with that, MVP awards come," Peterson said. "But I know this league and how it is, man. They're kind of biased to the quarterback, which is unfortunate. They make it hard for other players to win it, but I will." Johnson said he's proud of the way Peterson has performed this season, even if one ofhispeers is able to pass his mark of 2,006 yards. "The way he's been running, the way he's been playing, he has a good chance of him doing that. It's still a hard thing to do," Johnson said. The Vikings need him more than ever, with quarterback Christian Ponder still trying to find his groove as a starter, so Peterson will probably get enough attempts to have a chance at the milestone as long as the Vikings don't fall too far behind in any of their games. They finish the season at St. Louis, at Houston and at home against Green Bay, hoping to win out and for a chance at the playoffs. Qualifying for the postseason isalways a stretch a year after a 3-13 record, but maybe more so with a passing attack that has netted 150 yards or fewer in six of 13 games this season. But after a c areermost 31 carries in last week's win over Chicago, Peterson isn't wearing down now. He has enough motivation and momentum, whether he's successfulin these quests or not, to accomplish more yet that NFL convention insists he's not supposed to. " They don't call m e ' A l l Day' for no reason," he said. "I don't plan on h i tting no walls."

lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one. "We've got nothing to celebrate here," coach Marvin Lewis said. "But we won and we do have some time to get ready for Pittsburgh." The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses at Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, likely would ruin Cincinnati's chances because it would lose the tiebreaker. "Our goal is to win games. Period. We did that. Doesn't matter how we got there," cornerback A d am "Pacman" We can Jones said. "We can be better. be higher. And that's what we take from this game. Listen, we all know we need to play better as a defense next week. Because we have ourselves a big one next week." The Eagles' season was lost a long time ago. They fell to 4-10, losing doubledigit games for the first time since 2005, the year after losing the Super Bowl to New England. There were plenty of empty seats at the Linc, where fans are hoping this is Andy Reid's final season as coach. Reid led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles and five NFC championship games in his first 13 years. But the Eagles will miss the playoffs for the second straightyear and owner Jeffrey Lurie already said 8-8 would be "unacceptable." "Five turnovers, 31 points. That says it all," Reid said. "Guys played hard, but you can't have those turnovers. You have to take care of the ball. Guys have to do it. I take full responsibility for them." An interception by Leon Hall set up Dalton's go-ahead 11-yard TD run in the third quarter. Then Wallace Gilberry picked up Bryce Brown's fumble and ran it back 25 yards for another score and an 11-point lead. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 106 y ards, including a I -yard TD ru n i n the first quarter for Cincinnati. Dalton

tossed a 5-yard TD pass to A.J. Green in the fourth to cap a 24-point outburst in a span of 3:23. "We realize what's at stake here, and we know we needed to put some football plays together," Lewis said. "We put ourselves at risk tonight, but we made plays when we needed to. We were able to get some things going with the turnovers and that definitely helped. We redirected some things at halftime and got everyone on the same page." The Eagles committed three turnovers on three straight possessions at one point and then fumbled a kickoff when defensive lineman Cedric Thornton let the ball fall through his hands on a short kick. After beating Tampa Bay on a last-second TD last week to snap an eight-game losing streak, the Eagles tried to make it two in a row. Turnovers got in their way again. They've committed an NFL-high 34 and forced just 12 all season. The Eagles snapped a drought of 22 quarterswithout a turnover by recovering two fumbles in the second. Both led to field goals by Alex Henery, helping Philadelphia to a 13-10 halftime lead. Rookie Nick Foles made his f i fth straight start for Michael Vick, who just returned to practice this week after sustaining a concussion on Nov. 11. Foles threw for 182 yards, one TD and one interception.

Down D-10, the Bengals started their rally with a turnover. Hall intercepted Foles' deep pass and returned it 44 yards to the Eagles 40. Foles underthrew Jeremy Maclin, who was a few steps behind Hall. "I feel really good anytime I have one of ourreceivers vertical on a guy," Foles said. "I just have to get the ball out there and make a better throw." Green made an acrobatic catch for an 11-yard gain on third-and-9 a few plays before Dalton ran for the score to put the Bengals up 17-13. Foles, who threw for 381 yards to lead that comeback against the Bucs, hit Riley Cooper on an 11-yard TD pass to cut it to 10-7. Foles connected with Maclin on a 46-yard pass during the drive. The Eagles then forced their first turnover since Nov. 5 against New Orleans. Brandon Graham sacked Dalton, the ball popped loose and Trent Cole recovered at the Bengals 29. "We win as ateam, we lose as ateam," said Eagles defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who replaced Juan Castillo after six games. "We lost as a team today." Just two plays in, Maclin fumbled after a 6-yard catch. Carlos Dunlap recovered and the Bengals started at the Eagles 44. Green-Ellis ran 29 yards on first down and scored a few plays later for a 7-0 lead.

By Andrew Dampf The Associated Press

V AL G A R D ENA , It a l y — Overall World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal has been nearly unbeatable in speed races this season. However, this weekend he could be challenged by hi s training partner and teammate Kjetil Jansrud. Jansrud and Svindal finished 1-2 in the final training session for the annual World Cup downhill on the Saslong course, which has traditionally been a challenge for the two Norwegians. Racing begins today with a super-G, followed by t h e downhill race on Saturday, then a giant slalom in nearby Alta Badia on Sunday. "This has never been my downhill, but a lot of small things have come together," Svindal said, adding that improving here and at the famed Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen, Switzerland, were big

Thursday. "Greg was trying to soldier through and clearly it wasn't possible ... he was quite ill," said PGA of Australia chief executive Brian Thorburn.

COOLUM, A us t r a lia — Daniel Popovic shot an 8-under 64 to take a twostroke lead after the first round of t h e A u stralian P GA C hampionship o n Thursday, revealing afterward that his father is battling incurable cancer. P opovic, on h i s f i r s t year on the Australasian PGA Tour, birdied his first four holes at the Palmer Coolum Resort, and later had a string of five straight birdies. Fellow Australian Scott Strange shot 66 and was alone in second, followed by 2006 U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy and OneAsia Tour regulars Zhang Xinjun of China and Sin-

Snow is in the forecast for Saturday, which could affect the downhill. Last year's race was wiped out because of high wind after 21 racers completed their runs. Organizers h av e r a i s ed the possibility of dividing the race into two shorter runs this year t o a v oid adverse weather conditions above the tree line. "It's a r eally good idea," Svindal said. "Tough conditions I don't mind, unfair conditions are bad. A number of times we've skied the top flat here and it's been ridiculous head wind." French racers Johan Clarey and Adrien Theaux stood at 1-2 when last year's race was canceled. "I have a l o t o f m o t ivation every weekend, but this is somewhere in my m i nd," Clarey said. "I hope I can be as good as I was last year." While the powerful Austrian team has had mild success this season, the Swiss team featuring Olympic downhill champion D i d ie r D e f ago, f ormer overall W o rld C u p winner Carlo Janka and allarounder Silvan Zurbriggen is struggling. Swiss standout Beat Feuz is out for the season because ofpersistent problems with his left knee a nd four-time W o rl d C u p downhill c h ampion D i d ier Cuche retired at the end of last season. Feuz won the super-G here last season. Cuche is making his first appearance as a special adviser to the downhill squad this week.

BodeMiller likelywon'traceuntil Fedruary VAL GARDENA, Italy — Bode Miller likely won't start his season until February as part of his cautious return from left knee surgery. There's also a chance he might sit out the entire season. U.S. Ski Team head coach Sasha Rearick tells The Associated Press that Miller is scheduled to fly to Europe in early January to

begin training. Rearick says: "Let's train first. Step by step. Thefirst step is to get on the skis, then the race skis, then train.... I would love to have him race as soon as possible, but let's look long-term. Let's look

Olympics. "It would be stupid for me not to try to learn from (Svindal) and try to pick up what he does," Jansrud said. "I've learned from him and hopefully now we're at the point where we can benefit from each other by pushing each other in training." It also helps that they share the same ski providers and technicians, so they can trade information. "We work together todevelop the equipment," Svindal said. "We're pretty relaxed, too. We know we've trained well and we've prepared well and there's not much more we can do, just try to be fast."

Industrial production

S&P 500

The Federal Reserve issues data today on how industrial production fared in November. Production fell sharply in October, held back by temporary dis-

ruptions caused by Superstorm Sandy and companies' fears that a federal budget crisis could trigger a recession next year. Economists have forecast that industrial production bounced back last month, rising 0.3 percent.

Stocks fell Thursday on worries that budget talks in Washington are faltering. House Speaker John Boehner accused President Barack Obama of dragging out negotiations that would keep the economy from falling off the "fiscal cliff." That's the package of tax increases and cuts in government spending that will take effect automatically in 2013 unless Washington reaches a compromise on the budget. The worries about the cliff overshadowed an encouraging report on the job market: Fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, an indication that layoffs may be slowing. Retail sales also rebounded in November after falling in October.

Derek Sitter sands pieces of wood to be used as siding while Don Tompos hangs metal grates for the Volcanic Theatre Pub in Bend's Century Center on Wednesday.

ew t eater venue e veo in i n e n By Rachael Rees The Bulletin

About a year ago, Derek Sitter began work on a dream he's had for the past two decades — the construction of a community theater for performing plays and showing films. Sitter could learn as soon as next week if it becomes reality. He and his partner, Don Tompos, await the city's decision on their Volcanic Theatre Pub, a 60-seat venue they are creating inside a 2,500-square-foot industrial building within the Century Center, the development at Southwest Century Drive and Northwest Commerce Avenue. It's home to GoodLife Brewing, Backporch CoffeeRoasters and other businesses. Craig Chenoweth, development servicescoordinator for the city of Bend, said Wednesday a decision will be issued in about a week. The city initially approved the Volcanic Theatre Pub in July. But about a month later, Nosler Investments LLC appealed the decision to the Oregon Land

"This type of theater isn't all just taking place on the stage. The entire venue becomes the set. I'm not interacting with

you, but l'm sweating on you."

By Eric Pfanner New Yorh Times News Service

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — In a moment of high drama at the end of nearly two weeks of talks on an international telecommunications treaty, the United States rejected a proposal negotiated by more than 190 countries on Thursday after delegates were unable to resolve an impasse over the Internet. "It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that the United States must communicate that it is unable to sign the agreement in its current form," Terry Kramer, head of the U.S. delegation, announced mom ents after a finaldraft had

been approved by a majority of nations. The U.S. announcement was seconded by Canada and several European countries after talks that had often pitted Western governments against developing countries. The talks were held under the auspices of the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations agency. The acrimonious end to

the talks does not mean international telephone calls or cross-border Internet traffic will suddenly be cut off. Countries that approved the final document could implement it on their own, with holdouts like the U.S. putting separate agreements in place. The U.S. has consistently maintained that the Internet should not be mentioned in the treaty, which deals with technical matters like connecting international telephone calls, because doing so could lead to curbs on free speech and replace the existing, bottom-up form of Internet oversight with a government-ledmodeL "We cannot support a treaty that is not supportive of the multi-stakeholder model of Internetgovernance," Kramer said. His announcement came moments after the telecommunication union announced that a final version of the text had been adopted. The goal of the talks was to revise a document that was last updated in 1988, when the Internet was in its early stages of development.

— Derek Sitter, theater co-owner

Use Board of Appeals. Nosler, parent company of the bullet and ammunition maker, said it did not receive notice of the application or the city's decision, according to a letter from its attorney, Steven Hultberg, to the city of Bend. Access to Century Center, the former location of Bright Wood's Bend mill, from Northwest Columbia Street runs through Nosler's parking lot. The city withdrew its approval and has been reconsidering the theater request. Once the city issues a decision, Tompos said, there will be a 12-day

appeal period. Nosler spokesman Zach Waterman said he could not comment. The lengthy approval process has not deterred

Tompos and Sitter, who started work on the theater in July. The partners said they are paying for the remodeling themselves and doing most of the work. Their plans call for a 16-foot by 16-foot stage, a bar and deli. Sitter said he hopes to stage seven shows a year, along with showing a number of films that relate to the writers or themes of the plays being performed. "This type of theater isn't all just taking place on the stage," he said. "The entire venue becomes theset.I'm not interacting with you, but I'm sweating on you." If the city approves the theater and no one appeals, Tompos said, it should open at the start of the new year. — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

Joblessclaimspost 4th straight decline Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON — Initial claims for unemployment benefits posted their fourth straight big decline last week to their lowest level since early October as the impact of Superstorm Sandy on the jobs market continued to dissipate. There were 343,000 new jobless claims in the week that ended Saturday, down 29,000 from the previous week's revised level, the Labor Department reported Thursday. The drop was larger than economists had forecast. The less-volatile four-week average also dropped, to 381,500from the previous

week's reading of 408,500. Initial unemployment claims are now back to about the same level they were before Sandy hit the Northeast on Oct.29-30. Economists say that claims below about 350,000 a week are consistent with strong jobs growth. The economy added 146,000 new jobs in November as the economy weathered Sandy's impact better than expected. The unemploym ent rate dropped to 7.7 percent, but its continued high level triggered new efforts announced Wednesday by the FederalReserve to bring it down.

Best Buyrisesafter reports founder plans to makeoffer By Chris Burritt Bloomberg News

Best Buy Co., the world's largest electronics retailer, rose the most in almost four years Thursday after the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported founder Richard Schulze will offer to take the company private by Dec. 15. The shares climbed 16 percent to $14.12 at the close in

New York, the biggest daily gain since Dec. 16, 2008. Richfield, Minn.-based Best Buy has fallen 40 percent this year. Schulze will submit an offer to theboard before the Dec. 16 deadline, the newspaper reported, citing a person it didn't name. The bid will be about $5 billion to $6 billion, the StarTribune said. Best Buy declined to com-

ment on the report, said Matt Furman,a company spokesman. David Reno, a spokesman for Schulze, didn't immediately reply to telephone messages and an email seeking comment. Schulze, 71, has been working with three private-equity firms, including Cerberus Capital Management, on a takeover of the electronics chain,

people familiar with the matter said. Schulze and his allies had pressed for a 30-day extension of their due diligence period so they could see how Best Buy performs during the holidays, a person familiar with the matter said last month. Best Buy last month posted a $10 million loss for its fiscal third-quarter as sales at established stores fell. CEO Hubert

Joly is working to improve customerservice as customers defect to Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Schulze resigned as chairman in June after an investigation found he failed to tell the board's audit committee about allegations former CEO Brian Dunn was having an inappropriate relationship with an


SolarCity leapsin1st day of trading New York Times News Service SolarCity may not have raised as much in its initial public offering than it had once hoped. But at its lowered offering price, the solar power company found morethan a few takers. During the first day of trading for the company's stock, shares jumped as much as 59 percent during the day. The stock closed Thursday at $11.79, or about 47 percent above its offering price or $8. That valued SolarCity at nearly $867 million.

The strong market debut followed a few days of difficulty for SolarCity and its underwriters, none of whom fully prepared for the issues in bringing a clean technology company to market. SolarCity, whose backers include Tesla founder Elon Musk, prides itself on being different from other companies in the solar sector. It finances and installs rooftop solar systems in exchange for long-term monthly payments from its customers, and prefers to think of itself as an

energy company, rather than just a solar company. The solar leases typically run 20 years. That differentiation appears not to have been completely embraced by potential shareholders. As recently as Tuesday, SolarCity had expected to raise as much as $151 million, at a price of $13 to $15 a share.

ccording to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, today's 45- to 54-year-olds are spending more of their money on housing, health care and education than anyone else in their age group has for the past 25 years. Financial planners and advocates for older Americans fearthese increased li ving expenses, which are hitting people between the ages of 55 and 64 equally as hard, may force some to postpone retirement until they can afford to enjoy it. "For some people, (being able to retire) is a matter of postponing the date you quit working," said Joyce DeMonnin, the outreach director for AARP Oregon. The need to balance the higher cost of living with a robust retirement strategy may also force some parents in this age group to make difficult decisions when it comes to what they

at the mountain without parental supervision'? Julia Carr is the Sunrise Lodge work supervisor and often supervises children between the ages of 3 and 13. She has been with Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort since 2005. Denise Ellington is the day care supervisor at Mt. Bachelor. One of the factors that Carr and Ellington agree is important when parents are considering whether to let their child go skiing or snowboarding alone is knowing their familiarity with the mountain. "Do they know how to get on and off the lift?" Ellington said. "Do they know where the ski patrol is? Do they know where the bus will pick them up? Some kids can be independent and mature but may not know a lot of these things." Ellington suggests parents go with their child if he or she is still unfamiliar. Children should know where to go for help in case of an emergency when at the mountain without parental supervision.

or their children want and what they can afford.

Housing Between 1986 and 2011, the amount of money people between the ages of 45 and 64 paid for housing — including rent or mortgage payments and utilities — grew at a rate that outpaced their income growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Expenditure Survey. They spent anaverage of $9,040 a year, or 25.4 percent of their median household incomes, on housing in 1986 and $18,782, or 29.4 percent of their incomes, on this expense in 2011, according to the survey. Households headed by people between theages of 55 and 64 saw theirhousing costs go from 25.9 percent of their incomes to 30.7 percent during that 25-year period. SeeSpend /D2

Carr also says assessing the child's snowboarding or skiing skill level is also an important factor. "Ideally, children going up shouldn't be beginners," Carr said. "They should be able to get around the mountain comfortablyand have a general understanding of the mountain in order to get down safely." While Carr and Ellington agree that there is no way to put an exact age on it, they say there are certain indicators of maturity to look for. SeeQuestion /D4

Caring for family caregivers • Age Wide Open support group helps those taking care of their parents Editor's Note: The Bulletin's All Ages section regularly profiles local organizations designed to help families and seniors. To suggest an organization, contact Alandra Johnson at or 541-617-7860.

By Mac McLean The Bulletin

Ali Davidson knew she was doing some good when 55 people showed up to her caregiver support group's first meeting in June. "There was so much emotion in the audience," said Davidson, the co-founder of Age Wide Open. "You could tell they really needed something like this."

More than 10 million people — about one-fourth of the U.S.'s population of adults whose parents are still alive — are providing some sort of personalcare or financial assistance to their aging parents, according to a June 2011 report issued by the MetLife Mature Market Institute. These caregiving responsibilities cost the country an estimated $3 billion in lost wages and pension contributions, and have a devastating mental and physical toll on the people who provide them, according to the report, which found 18 to 27percent of caregivers are in "fair" or "poor" health. Davidson said she witnessed this first-hand when

she ran a home-health-care business in Bend. She wrote a book designed to help people talk with their parents about what they need and want in terms of care as they get older. She formed Age Wide Open with Chelsea Callicott, a public relations specialist w ho caredforher father until he died this summer, to help people through this process. "It's comforting to talk to someone who knows what

you're going through," Davidson said. Most of the attendees at Age Wide Open's first meeting had their caregiving duties under control, she added, but needed someone who understood their predicament.

00 in o rever S iS By Sara Glassman Tired of being told to act or dress your age? You're not alone. To dispel age-related fashion taboos, the women behind the website Agingbutdanger, Jean Ketcham, 71, and C. Suzanne Bates, 63, put on a fashion show. The duo cast 30 models who prove that short skirts, leggings and red lipstick don't have an expiration date. "There are so many rules that they say you can't do over 50 and we're sick of it," said Ketcham. "We want to show how great women over 50 look."

Spend Continued from D1 One reason isthat fewer p eople in t h ese t w o a g e groups owned their homes outright a nd mor t g agefree last year than they did 25 years ago. That's especially the case among 55- to 6 4-year-olds, according t o the consumer expenditure survey, which found 41 percent of the people in this age group owned their h omes debt-free in 1986 but only 32 percent of them had paid off their mortgages in 2011. "If you want to retire, getting out of your mortgage is definitely a good idea," DeMonnin said. People should be debt-free or have a pay-off date set in the horizon when they retire.

She said people may be able to lessen the housing expense by moving into a smaller home or consider a co-housing options where they rent out extra rooms in their house. Brian Stallcop, the owner of Bend's Sherpa W ealth Strategies financial planning

group, said people should try to pay off t heir mortgages before they stop w o rking. But he has many clients who have retired with mortgage payments; with today's low interest rates, this may not be quite the disaster it's cracked up to be. "It just gives (the retirees) less flexibility," he said. Unpaid mortgages can also have

a psychological impact, he added, because making payments may occupy seniors' thoughts and keep them from enjoying retirement.

Health care According to the consumer expenditures survey, 45- to 54-year-olds spent 3.5 percent of their income on health care, medical supplies and health insurance in 1986, and 5.3 percent of their total earning on health care in 2011. People who were 55 to 64 saw their health-care costs

She lists the A B I M Fou n d ation's " Choosing W i s ely" c a m paign, www.choosingwisely. org, and the Oregon Health Care Quality Corp.,, where people can turn to find out what is needed and what may not be. But she admitted some retirees may not be willing to take thesesteps because they may have problems finding a doctor due to Medicare's low reimbursement rates and they would rather not question his or her advice for fear it may make it harder to get an appointment.

Education Education costs went from representing 1.7 percent of a 45- to 54-year-old's income in 1986 to 2.9 percent of their incomes in 2011, according to the consumer expenditure survey. People who were 55 to 64 saw a similar increase as their education bills went from 0.9 percent of their in-

comes to 1.5 percent with most of this increase going toward their children's education, but sometimes their own. Stallcop wasn't surprised by this increase and noted one of his clients is delaying her r etirement so she can focus on paying off student loandebts she incurred while g o in g t o med i c al school as part of a late-in-life career change. But while Stallcop's example may be an extreme case, it certainly isn't out of the ordinary for people to be carrying large amounts of student loan debt with them into retirement. According to a report issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, people in their 40s had an average student loan balance of $27,103, people in their 50s had an average balance of $23,183 and people in their 60s had an average balance of $19,225. Stallcop said another reason people ages 45 to 64 could be seeingincreased education costs is that they've chosen to start families later in life.

" I'm 47 an d I ' v e go t a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old," the financial planner said, using himself as an example. "I've got r e tirement, wed-

dings and (my children's) college education happening all at the same time.... Right now, people in their 60s have kids in college." Stallcop said a p a r ent's desire to pay for their child's education can be tempting, but shouldn't get in the way of their own retirement savings plans. This is why it's important for parents to set a budget that includes saving money for collegeonly after money is set aside for retirement; he recommends saving 10 percent ofa person's income for retirement, but only if they can afford it. He also said people should look at alternatives, such as sending their children to community college for two years before they start their classes full time at a university. "It's just a r ealistic family discussion," he said. "We have to focus on what we can afford." — Reporter: 541-617-7816,

Care group Continued from D1 In addition to having people they can talk to and share resources with, Davidson said, its also important for caregivers to have either one of their parent'sfriends or a professional caseworker check up on their parent and provide routine updates about their needs. Parents may not be w i l ling to talk with their children about their problems, she said, which is why it's important the caregivershave a third party they can trust to keep them informed beforeany issues get out of hand. During its first six months, Age Wide Open has held informal support group sessions on the first Monday of each month that attract about 10 to 20 people. It's also held special programs on the third Monday of each month to look at various issues. This winter's events include an elder law ex-

pert in January, a talk on communication in February and a talk about taking care of one's self in March — that help caregivers perform their duties. Davidson said the organizations' future plans involve finding aspace to serve as a permanent home for its activities and raising money it can use to help caregivers hire a home-health-care worker or for airfarein case an out-ofstate parent has a crisis. "This is going to get more and more important as time goes on," Davidson said, adding more and more people will become caregivers as baby boomers continue to age. — Reporter 541-617-7816

Raymond GardiM cclatchy-Tnbune News Service

In June, Rosebud Gard jumped out of a plane to celebrate turning 90. That's her at right, hooked on to tandem master Steve Osner of Missouri River Valley Skydivers in Lexington, Mo.

f O'V /


Mcclatchy-Tribune News Service

Frances Keating, 90 (far right), went on a two-hour whitewater rafting trip in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

-an - ivin ont ewi Si e By Tim Engle The Kansas City Star

Every time former President George H.W. Bush jumps out of a plane, it makes news. Which means he has made news for tandem skydiving, anyway three times: on his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays. The elder Bush has said he also plans to take the leap as a 90-year-old, which is still a couple of years off, although lately Parkinson's disease has been bothering his legs. Well, Mr. Ex-President, you may get the headlines, but you're certainly not the only nonagenarian thrill seeker out there. Just look around. Rosebud Gard, for instance, has beaten Bush to the skydiving-at-90 trophy. George Roe, 92, just reached one of the highest points in the nation. He isn't even that impressed with Bush. "You know, anybody can sit in a paratrooper's lap and make a jump," he said. Meanwhile, Frances Keating recently returned from whitewater r a fting i n t he Smoky Mountains. She is 90, and while she doesn't have any desireto skydive,she could see herself on a zipline. W hat's g oing o n he r e ? Aren't folks in their 90s supposed to be feeble? Actually, what's going on is that people are living longer. Heck, 90 may be the new 80. Or 70. In 1980, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2.8 percent of the older-than-65 set were in their 90s. In 2010, that figure was 4.7 percent (an estimated 1.9 million Americans). Over the next four decades, the number of people in their 90s will quadruple, the Census Bureau estimates. Which means that before long, hearing about a 90-yearold skydiver won't elicit much interest. Even if he used to be the leader of the free world.

Jumping from Cloud 9 Rosebud Gard, 90, has two sons and has been widowed 11 years. She and her husband, Earl, who were married 59 years, used to drive out to the Independence, Mo., airport to watch skydivers there. Her big adventure: "I didn't want to say anything to him," Rosebud said, but the truth was, she wanted to try it. Earl wouldn't have liked the idea. She had already crossed one item off her bucket list: a hot-air balloon ride. That was for her 70th birthday. On a cruise with family in 2010, she parasailed with a great-granddaughter. She ziplined on the cruise ship, too. The plan was t hat she'd jump out of a plane for her big 9-0, but it didn't end up happening until June 23 in Lexington, Mo. An entourage of about 30 — family, friends and church family — turned out to cheer her on. Rosebud wore a pink floral top, pink shorts and her walking shoes. T he plane, piloted by a young woman, went two miles up. Once Rosebud jumped, she would free fall at 110 mph, at least until the parachute popped open. But she wasn't

in charge of that. "Oh, he was the sweetest kid," Rosebud said of Steve Osner, the Missouri River Valley Skydivers tandem master she was attached to. She was never frightened, she said. "I was really on cloud nine from the time we set it until I got to do it." She can't wait to do it again. Age-defying secrets: "I can't say I don't worry, because I do." But genetics seem to be on her side. Her maternal grandmother lived to be 97; her paternal grandmother,94. She has a big sister who's 94 and a little sister who's 84. Philosophy of life:"You have to have Christ in y our l ife, that's for sure."

Best advice she ever got:

"'Always remember w here you came from.' I think my dad said that."

'YOu'renOtleaVIng mebehind!' Frances K e a ting, w ho turned 90 Lt July, is a native Texan who has lived all over the country as well as in Taiwan, Italy and Germany. After her husband, J. Patrick Keating, died in 1990, she moved to Kansas City, Mo. These days, three of her nine children also live here. Frances worked for H&R Block for 28 years, eventually becoming a district m anager overseeing 20 o f fices. She retired from there in her late 70s. Her big adventure: At a big family reunion this summer in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, "everyone was going to go water rafting and I said, 'Well, you're not leaving me behind!'" It was a t w o-hour trip on rubber rafts down the Pigeon River. Everyone had to

paddle. But "it wasn't as wild as I thought it w ould be," Frances admitted. " Next t i m e I'll go on one that's rougher. Maybe down the Snake or the Colorado." Frances loves t o tr a v el — sometimes solo, sometimes with h e r o l d est d a ughter, Deborah Keating — especially on Amtrak. She has seen the Northern Lights before, but she'd like to get to Fairbanks, Alaska, in March to get an even better view. A big glass jug in her Plaza high-rise apartment contains m atchbooks from s ome o f her many trips. Not that she smokes: "Just liquor and sex. Those are my only vices." Age-defying secrets:For one thing, attitude. "I just get up and do it," Frances said. "Don't tell me I can't." She climbed a mountain in Glacier National Park in Montana when she was 70-something. She has never ziplined, but she saw one in a Vegas hotel she wanted to try. She's optimistic, "and I think that makes a lot of difference in a person." She has been sad but rarely depressed: "I may have been depressed 10 to 15 minutes once." Philosophy of life: "You should be very thankful to God for everything that he does for you." And don't hold a grudge,

"because (the other person) doesn't even care. It's harder on you than it is on them."

Ellington also said that parents should talk to their children specifically about bus etiquette if they're riding the bus up to the mountain. The buses are for visitors and mountain employees alike, and children need to understand that. It's about good behavior as much as it's about safety. "They need to understand the rules and consider the safety aspect," Ellington said. "The bus drivers are driving on snowy roads in white-out conditions sometimes. Distracting them could put everyone onboard in jeopardy." Ultimately, Ellington says, if

Continued from 01 For example, if parents are comfortable leaving their children at home alone,then he or she may be ready for skiing with friends. Ellington says kids who are involved in other sports often demonstrate the maturity and care that can later translate to skiing on their own. Generally, she suggests middle school is about the time when kids start showing this type of maturity. If the child is allowed to go, Ellington says parents should make sure they know who their child is going with and ensure theirfriends are also responsible. Sometimes sending them up with older siblings at first may be a better way to ease into the responsibility. She advises that parents set up times to check in by cellphone with their child, and make sure he or she adheres to the schedule. Inaddition, Carrrecommends parents have a sit-down discussion with the child before letting he orshe ride the bus to make sure they are familiar with the skier responsibility code.

A Awar snominations avor ramas,come ies TV SPOTLIGHT By Meredith Blake Los Angeles Times

AMC viaThe Associated Press

Jon Hamm received a Screen Actors Guild nomination for his role as Don Draper in "Mad Men."

NEW YORK — Cable dramas and network comedies dominated the nominees for the 19th-annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In the drama category, cable favorites such as "Homeland," "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad" and "Boardwalk E m p i re" picked up multiple nominations, while network series were all but overlooked. On the comedy side, the situation was reversed: Only one cable series, "Nurse Jackie,"

made the cut in the ensemble category, with S A G f a voring network sitcoms like "30 Rock," "Modern Family" and

"The Big Bang Theory."

And naturally, there were some surprises and snubs. After ignoring them l ast year, SAG voters nominated Damian Lewis an d C l a ire Danes, the E m my-winning leads of "Homeland," along with the rest of the show's ensemble. Although the cast of "Mad Men" received a nod, as did its star, Jon Hamm, none of its female stars — Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks,

Jessica Pare or January Jones — were nominated. SAG voters alsooverlooked perennial nominees Kyra Sedgwick and Glenn Close, whose respective shows, "The Closer" and "Damages," wrapped up this

year. The comedy actress category was mostly a repeat of last year, with the notable exception of "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen, who won her second Emmy in September.She was edged out of contention by Amy Poehler of "Parks and Recreation." Despite winning an Emmy f or h e r pe r f o rmance o n

"Veep," Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also neglected by SAG voters. A mong actors, th e b i g gest surprise may have been t hat Michael C . H a l l w a s overlooked for his work on "Dexter," while Jeff Daniels was honored for the critically scorned " Th e N e w sroom." L ouis C.K. edged out t h i s year's Emmy winner, Jon Cryer of "Two and a Half Men," on the comedy side. The SAG Awards will be held Jan. 27, at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center and broadcast on TNT and TBS.


PARENTS'GUIDE TO MOVI ES This guide, compiled by Orlando Sentinel film critic Roger Moore, is published here every Friday It should be used with the MPAA rating systemfor selecting movies suitable for children. Films rated G, PG or PG-13 are included, along with R-rated films that may have entertainment or educational value for older children with parental guidance.

'THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY' Rating: PG-13 for "extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence, and frightening images. What it's about: An unassuming hobbit is added to a company of dwarfs as they march off to recover a treasure from a dragon. The kid attractor factor: Dwarfs, wizards, dragons and goblins. And a hobbit, in over his head. Goodlessons/bad lessons:"True

courage is not knowing when to take a life, but when to spare one." Violence: Archery and swordplay, with beheadings and dismemberments. Language: Quiteclean. Sex: None at all. Drugs: Wine is consumed, along with lots of pipe-weed. Parents' advisory: More graphically violent than "The Lord of the Rings," probably too intense for the very young — OKfor10 and older.

'HYDE PARK ONHUDSON' Rating: R for brief sexuality. What it's about: President Franklin Roosevelt entertains the King and Queen of England at his mother's estate while carrying on an affair with a distant cousin. The kid attractor factor: "Kings Speech"-era history, played for laughs. Goodlessons/bad lessons: Greatfigures of history have their unseemlyhuman side.

consumed in copious quantities. Parents' advisory: A history lesson that teens will get more out of than younger children, suitable for 13-and-older.

Dear Abby: My husband and I have been married for seven years. Since our wedding, he has had increasing health problems. H e recently told m e t hat h e planned his funeral three months ago without saying a word to me. I am very concerned that • EAR he seems more focused on death than on life. Am I wrong to be upset? He says I am. — Wife in Burlington, N.J. Dear Wife: I don't blame you for being concerned because husbands and wives should be able to discuss important topics with each other, and this is one of them. When your husband has his next medical appointment, go with him so you can speak with his physician. It's possible that because of his "increasing health problems" he has become depressed, and if that's the case, his doctor should be told. Dear Abby: My 24-year-old son, "Dustin," moved out five years ago, but he expects me to keep all his

childhood and college items in his old bedroom because he says he doesn't have room for them in his apartment. I'd like to clear out his closet and dresserand use the space forthings 4="' I want to store. Dustin is c a lling me selfish because I want to change "his" room. I say I need the space, and if he wants to keep all his stuff, he shouldrent a storage locker. How long are parents obligated to keep their g r own c h ildren's keepsakes? — Wants My Space Dear Wants Your Space: You are asking an emotionally loaded question. While, rationally, five years should be long enough, clearing "his" room instead of maintaining it as a shrine may feel like abandonment to your adult child. Give Dustin a little more time to adjust — like six months — and then insist that he find a place for his things. That way it will be a little less traumatic. Dear Abby: During these hard

times, may I tell you about my daughter? Every year at Christmas, I let our children pick one present for around $30 for themselves. They know that we don't have a lot of money and that "Santa" brings only a few presents. My daughter chose to give her "Christmas money" to a charity so that another family can be blessed. She's only 9, and she understands there are families who are in more need than us. She truly is an angel for reminding me of that. I went to our local food pantry and told them what my daughter wanted to do for Christmas. The director wrote her a letter of thanks and explained how many families her $30 would be helping. I'm so proud of my girl. Sometimes it takes a child to remind us how all of us should act. — Blessed in Illinois Dear Blessed: Yes, it's true.

By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

I continue a series on managing the trump suit. Some players are so nervous about leaving trumps undrawn that they may draw an "insurance" round. In a duplicate event, South won the first club and drew trumps with the A-K. He next led a spade to dummy's queen, winning, and then wanted to return to his hand for another spade finesse. So South led a trump to his jack. "An insurance round," South said lightly.

club, you respond one heart and he bids INT. What do you say? ANSWER: Yo u h ave enough values to insist on game, but notrump doesn't look right. You may belong at four hearts or even at four spades or five clubs. Bi d t w o s p ades, a "reverse" that is forcing to game. If partner next bids three hearts, you'll try four hearts. If he bids anything else, you'll have room to probe for the best game. East dealer N-S vulnerable

NORTH 4IAQ J7 Q AQ74 3 03 4762

CLUB LOSER South led a spade to the jack, threw his club loser on the ace and led a diamond. East played low (!), and South's jack lost to the king. West led anotherclub, and South ruffed but could ruff only tw o o f h i s t h ree remaining diamonds in dummy. He lost a diamond at the end, making only five. South's extra round of trumps was costly: North-South got a b ottom score on the deal. Careful Souths finessed in spades at Trick Two. They drew trumps, finessed in spades, took a club discard, conceded a diamond and took the rest with a crossruff, making six.

Kid Rock "REBEL SOUL" Atlantic Records Heartland rock and country epics — that was Kid Rock, vintage 2010. Kid's "Born Free" that year was a good one, filled with the grandeur, grit and fresh air of a Bob Seger record, without Kid's usual hip-hop lean or strip-club soliloquies. Problem was, few people bought into the idea of a Chevy truck-driving, wind-in-your-hairstyled Kid. They like their Kid with dirty hair and a dirtier mind. So he gave it to them. "Rebel Soul" is more clichedriven than Rock's foul, funkier previous albums. Then again, you don't come to Kid's albums for innovation. You come f or tried-and-true rock-out axioms, ideas as worn as old motorcycle boots, and how Ki d s omehow makes them inviting.

fashion, it's easy to forget that less than a year ago, it was home to another fine Thai restaurant, Typhoon! Owners J.J. Chaiseeha and his wife, Noi Lapangkura, are part of a Seattle-area restaurant family; highly regarded Bai Tong, in Tukwila and Redmond, Wash., was started by Noi's mother and grandmother. "J.J. wanted to start his own project," said Noi general manager Brianna Brending. eHe looked at expanding with a similar idea but a different identity than Bai Tong.

"After Typhoon! closed last February, J.J. was encouraged to look at the space, even though it was further from Seattle than he had planned. When he came down, he immediately fell in love with it." That was in July. Noi, the restaurant, opened two months later, on Sept. 21.

Service questions

Noi is not a casual cafe, even if some ofits menu offerings resemble Bangkok street food. This is elegant, fine dining in the style of Thailand. The flavors of its dishes are delicately interwoven; even though I recognize coconut milk or lemongrass or basil in an order, it isn't forced upon me. On three visits, my dining companion and I were able to try a wide variety of dishes, beginning with appetizers. Noi's crab wontons were one of the best versionsof Chinese "crab Rangoon" I've had anywhere. The folded,

One of my favorite Southeast Asian desserts is black rice pudding, only occasionally found in American Thai restaurants. Unhusked sticky rice is cookedto a glutinous consistency and served warm with sweetened coconut milk on top. Noi's was very good. My companion preferred pa-tongko, or Thai doughnuts, afavorite street snack in Asia. A little like sliced beignets, they are served with two dipping sauces, one of condensed milk flavored with honey, the other of custard from sweet tropical pandan leaves. If we had a complaint at Noi, it had to do with inconsistent service. For the mostpart,serverswere very gracious, quick to take drink and food orders and to recommend menu selections. But we were once delivered the wrong order (tom kah instead of tom yum soup). My friend's tea order was once delivered with two cups, the other time with only one cup. And twice in t h ree visits, our server failed to ask how spicy we like our food. Noi offers a "I to 5" spice measurement that ranges from mild to Thai-hot. I am normally a "3." Yet even a happy-hour plate called "spicy chicken wings" was not spicy in the least. I requested a tray of chilies and other condiments that was subsequently forgotten. Service is a concern that has not gone unnoticed by Brending, the general manager. "Training is something we're working on with all of our servers," she said. "It's important that we're all asking the same questions — that diners can returntime after time, have differentserversbut getthe same product."

and flaky as good Japanese tempura. The excellent filling of crab meat and cream cheese included a bit of crunchy celery, and an accompanying plum dipping sauce added a touch of sweetness. The fresh rolls had prawns and barbecued pork w rapped in s oft rice skin with lettuce, cilantro, basil leaves,carrots, sprouts and rice vermicelli. They were cut into four pieces and served with what Noi calls its "famous peanut sauce." I think it's a bit early for fame, and the sauce was a bit thick for my taste, but it had great nutty flavor. Both soups are wonderful. Tom yum is the quintessential Thai soup, a spicy-sour broth simmered with lemongrass and sliced galangal (a close relative of ginger). It is also flavored with cilantro, green onions and straw mushrooms, and I enjoy it most with prawns. Its counterpart is tom kah, cooked with coconut milk to give it a milder flavor and slightly creamy consistency. I like it best with chicken. The soups are served in individual tureens. At many other Thai restaurants, when two or more people share the same soup,they are presented in steaming hot pots with a flame beneath, allowing diners to ladle their own portions. This is something I miss at Noi. The larb salad is excellent, a characteristic concoction of minced meat (I recently had pork, but chicken is also good) that diners wrap in large leaves of fresh lettuce. The meat is sauteed with red onions, cilantro, green chilies and lime juice.

A happy hour-sized order of fresh rolls with prawns waits to be served at Noi Thai Cuisine in Bend. at least one curry dish. Here, we tried two, both of them simmered in coconut milk with basil, bell peppers and bamboo shoots. Noi's red curry, with slices of beef, had a very rich flavor that might be attributed in part to kaffir lime leaves and bay leaves in the mix. The green curry, a little spicier than the red with green chilies, added sweetness with lime peel and palm sugar. We enjoyed it with soft squares of tofu. Crispy garlic chicken is a house favorite, a dish best shared between several diners. A sweet honey-andgarlic glaze locks the juices into the tender bites of chicken breast meat, which are then sauteed with flashfried basil leaves. Our dish was served on white cabbage. Simple but t a sty, "Swimming Rama" featured pieces of chicken on a bed offresh baby spinach leaves.Its key ingredient is the same rich and heavy peanut sauce served with the fresh rolls. Were it not for a dash of chilies, it might almost be like peanut butter. All of Noi's entrees come with a choice of rice — nutty brown rice, aromatic jasmine rice, coconut rice, garlic rice, ginger rice or even sticky rice, served in a plastic steamer wrapper within a tiny bamboo basket. But many diners prefer noodles, principally pad thai, the best known of any Thai dish. Thin rice noodles are stir-fried with tamarind sauce, lending a sweet-and-sour flavor. 0ther ingredients are eggs, tofu, bean sprouts, ground peanuts, radishes and green onions. At Noi, it was finished with a lacy net of eggs that resembled a yellow spider's web. Even though I liked the restaurant's pad thai, it was one of my least favorite dishes. My companion preferred the rard nah, made with wide rice noodles stir-fried with egg and garlic in a light soy sauce. They were then blended in a brown gravy withbeef, broccoli blossoms, carrots and shiitake mushrooms.

Clinton K. Clark rehearses a scene from "The Santaland Diaries," a comedic holiday play by David Sedaris and Joe Mantello. The show returns to Bend this week at 2nd Street Theater.

• Popular 'SantalandDiaries' comedywil playat 2ndStreetTheater in Bend By David Jasper The Bulletin


ear not, fans of the irascible, witty elf named Crumpet: Innovation Theatre Works may have recently closed, but one of its most popular productions, "The Santaland Diaries," is being revived by the same pair who brought the play to the stage last season. The play opens Wednesday with actor Clinton K. Clark once again donning his tights and silly cap to star in the one-man show — or, if you prefer, one-elf show, and Innovation cofounder and

artistic director Brad Hills will again serve as its director. The main difference is the venue, 2nd Street Theater in Bend (see "If you go"). 2nd Street stepped in to host "The Santaland Diaries" just in the St. Nick of time; when Clark attempted to take Crumpet the elf off the shelf himself this holiday season, he ran into a paperwork problem. "I essentially tried to take it on myself, and ... I screwed up the rights," Clark said. "They (the play's owners) wanted a bunch of money, and so I had to pull the

plug on myself being a producer.

But the cool thing is, when I did that, 2nd Street offered to take it on. It's been going good since then." According to Hills, "The Sant aland Diaries" is on e o f t h e most frequently produced plays in America. Humorist David Sedaris wrote the essay on which the play is b ased, chronicling h is experience working a s a lowly Macy's elf during the busy Christmas season. Writer Joe Mantello later turned it i nto a play, which is highly similar to its source material, said Hills, who adds that he always intended to

bring it back to ITW's stage. "We did very well with it last year," said Hills. "It's such an easy show to put up, and I was really glad that Clinton wanted to do it.

But we still had bills to pay, so we had no money to take on getting the rights to produce it and what not. It's really Clinton's impetus in getting the whole thing going. I'm just helping him make it happen." The essay and its offshoot stand in direct defiance of the annual films and TV specials trotted out to reflect our best side this time of year. "Santaland" captures us at our most greedy, selfish and commercially crass, burbling as it does with Sedaris's trenchant humor as he holds up a mirror to a society of truculent shoppers, flirty elves, obnoxious kids, cynical managers and wannabe-philanderer Santas.

What's Crumpet like'? Well, if you've ever seen the film "Elf," in which Will Ferrell bubbles over with cheer and good-natured holiday giddiness as Buddy, a human who thinks he's an elf, go ahead and think o f C r umpet as Buddy's polar opposite. When peevish customers threaten to have him fired, he wants nothing more than to reply icily, "I'm going to have you killed." Playing the role of an elf may comes across as demanding and demeaning work, but it p roved to be the then-unknown Sedaris' breakthrough. National Public Radio first aired him reading it in his telltale voice 1992. Over the next 20 years, "Santaland" b ecame a holiday staple of radio. It's among his collected essays in "Barrel Fever" and "Holidays on Ice," and a recording of him reading it is easily found at Hills and Clark say that this year, they'll be taking Crumpet to the next level. In short, they want to approach it from a perspective of "a little less nice and a little more bitchy," Hills said.

"(Crumpet) really doesn't (care) — and that's what makes him funny." — Clinton K. Clark, actor Sedaris' C r umpet "really just doesn't care," said Clark. "He really doesn'tand that's what makes him funny." " But it's a f i n e l in e t o walk," added Hills. Sedaris is loved for that ornery side, he said, but there are "these moments of redemption almost, that pervade everything he writes. There's always that little moment where he gets it, but only for a moment. Then he remembers who his audience is, and goes back." Clark, who is moving to Portland in January to further his acting career, said he also wanted to play Crumpet again "because it's such a good piece," he said. "As an artist, you're always striving to do better, and always second-guessing yourself and thinking you can do better."

Analyst Arvind Bhatia ofSterne Agee estimated that the new game would sell 10 percent to 15 percent

it appears that even if "Black Ops II" didn't do better on its first day, it has

It remains to beseen, of course, whether gamerswill keep upthe pace. Analyst Evan Wilson at Pacific Crest Securities estimated that "Black Ops II" will sell 27.5 million units in the current fiscal quarter, up from 27 million for "Modern

Warfare 3." It now seems certain, though, that "Call of Duty" remains the blockbuster franchise that it has been for most of the last decade. — Ben Fritz, Los Angeles Times

from people on your friends list and people you "follow" similarly to Twitter. The days of entering a string of impossible-t o-remember numbers to lock in Wii friends are over. To add a person to your friends list, simply enter in their Nintendo Network ID (which is basically their screen name). Then the other person has to enter yours and, bam, you are now friends! It's not as elegant as simply saying yes to a friend request on Xbox Live or PSN, but it's better than friend codes. Un-


fortunately, your ID is tied to a single console, so if it's stolen or breaks you lose all of your digitally purchased content and saves. We messed around with "FIFA 13's" online multiplayer, and both players have to be in the game itself and logged into EA's Origin servers to receive game invites. Voice chat is sup-

ported on a game-by-game basis, and you can't use the GamePad mic and speakers. You have to buy a headset like the officially licensed model from Turtle Beach. The lack of universal chat and game invites is a major bummer, and without a packed-in headset there are going to be a lot of silent multiplayer matches.

Final grade: BWe love the Wii U's HD visuals and surround sound, and the GamePad opens up new possibilities with the extra screen. Nintendo launched with tw o s o li d f i r st-party games and finally gave fans a wide array of third-party titles that were never coming to the old Wii. The bothersome update installation, short GamePadbattery life, and long loads bring things down, but the notquite-there online structure is the biggest letdown. G raphically, w e w on ' t know what the Wii U is capable of u n t i l d e velopers have had more time with the system.

Instead of firing up a Wii game from in the normal Wii U menu, players have to head into an emulation of the original Wii menu. If you've transferred content from your old system, it appears here. Gamers expecting mega up-rezzed versions of Wii classics will be disappointed, but the visuals are slightly cleaner than before when the signal is run through a digital HDMI connection instead of analog component cables. The GamePad is not compatible with original Wii content. Nintendo claims it's working on getting Virtual Console titles playable on the small screen, but it's unclear how or when this will happen.

The Nintendo Wii U's main selling point is the touch screen controller, pictured in the black deluxe version. The Gamepad is a cross between a tablet and a traditional video game controller.

Martin Freeman stars as a young Bilbo Baggins in the epic adventure "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

sa or eouse


• The short 'Hobbit' story is probablynot worth a trilogy of this magnitude or those who simply cannot get enough of Middle-earth, Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" promises to be the ultimate Travel New Zealand miniseries. He and his "Lord of the Rings" team have taken J.R.R. Tolkien's dense but slight and more comical "Rings" prelude, a simple quest to rob a dragon, and blown it up into a trilogy. And since the first installment,


"An Unexpected Journey," clocks in at almost three hours — well, you see what lies ahead of us. The settings are gorgeous. The effects are spectacular. (Well, most of them.) Gollum looks more real than ever. But in adding a prologue, in transposing characters from the "Rings" films into the narrative, and in having the luxury of including "Hobbit" minutia by the

bushel basketful, I have to say the bloat shows. The hardcore faithful won't admit it, but less cynical studios could have told this entire tale in three hours. Ian Holm, in the days before t he party t hat set " Th e L o r d of the Rings" in m o tion, narrates his first great adventure to his nephew Frodo (yes, Elijah Wood). In his youth, he was rousted from his comfy hobbit

u over one hole by the great wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen). And in his youth, he looked an awful lot like Martin Freeman, a bit of inspired casting that pays off right away. Not only does Freeman resemble a younger Holm, the actor's quirky Dr. Watson to Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes sensibility (in the latest British TV version of Holmes and Watson) shines through here. No one is better suited to be this "reluctant hero."

PAGE 26 • GO! MAGAZINE From previous page All the dwarfs want Bilbo for, of course, is his burglar skills. Not that he has any. But Gandalf told the dwarfs, Middle Earth's h omeless diaspora, t ha t t h i s bookish homebody Bilbo Baggins was just the sneaky fellow to take with them as they try to recover the treasure that the dragon Smaug stole from them when he destroyed and occupied their cav-

ern-city ages ago.

To Bilbo, Gandalf c ounsels "The world is not in your books and maps. It is — out there." So out there Bilbo goes, on "An UnexpectedJourney" to the land of elves, and into a Middle Earth

made increasingly dangerous by the incursions of trolls and goblins. He's a hobbit ("halfling") who acquires an elvish sword, a magical ring, an enemy for life (the fellow whose ring he stole) and the respect of a company of dwarfs along the way. Jackson has the time to settle on details — the moths who fly out of th e l iterally moth-eaten beard of the dwarfs. He can show us, in detail, Radagast the Brown (Sylvester McCoy), Gandalf's nature-loving brother wizard, with a team of rabbits driving his sledge, even if he's barely mentioned in "The Hobbit." Some of this is welcome, but one struggles to find a perform ance that stands out in t h i s opening exposition-packed chapter,aside from Freeman and the reliably g r a n diose M c K ellen. Richard A r mitage i s p r operly heroic as Thorin, the heir to the dwarf throne. But frankly, he's no Sean Bean. I t's a l i ghter f i lm, th e w a y the book is a lighter novel. But it's quite v i olent. One v i l l ain (voiced by Barry "Dame Edna" Humphries) even j okes about his manner of death. And there's

singing. Scenes and sequences are rich, but they go on too long, which turns this "Hobbit" from a brisk stroll into a bit of a slog. Jackson hasn't forgotten his lessons inforced perspective — using the camera, doubles, and the like to make Gandalf, men and elves tower over the hobbits and dwarfs in the "Rings" movies. But the contrast is less pronounced, less emphasized here. And that lesson screenwriters learn when studying the masters s eems utterly forgotten in t h e headlong march into making this book into a trilogy: Even Shakespeare needs editing. — Roger Mooreis a film critic for McClatchy-Tribune tqetvs Service.


an c e en returnsas an a • After the epic 'Rings' trilogy, the British actor is nostranger to Middle-earth By Steven Rea The Phi ladel phi a tnquirer

PHILADELPHIA - "Gandalf is in Middle-earth to keep an eye on everybody, and that can be a rather serious matter," said Ian McKellen, not all that seriously, on the phone from his London home the other day. A bsent last week f rom t h e Wellington, New Zealand, world premiere of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,"McKellen, of course, is Gandalf — the wise old wizard and guiding spirit in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, and now in "The Hobbit" prequel tril-

ogy, too. "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," Peter Jackson's hugely anticipated first installment, shot at 48 frames per second (twice a film's normal speed) and in 3-D, opens Friday. Set, as J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, in a time "between the Dawn of Farie and the Dominion of Men," "The Hobbit" follows the furry-footed, reluctant hero Bilbo Baggins as he embarks on a mission to claim a huge treasure guarded by an evil dragon, Smaug. He is joined on his quest by D dwarves, and here and there — when crises arise — by the mysterious, mischievous Gandalf. "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" are to be released in late 2013 and 2014, respectively. Although it has been a dozen years since McKellen donned the wizard's hat for the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy — and although "The Hobbit" takes place more than a half century earlier in Middle-earth chronology — the actor, now 73, believes age is not an issue. "Here's the good news for the fans — or the bad news, rather," he says with a laugh. "I'm exactly the same as I was before. I hope that I don't look 12 years older. It's true, Gandalf is actually meant to be 70 years younger — or is it 60? — but actuallyhe's 7,000 years old, so who's counting'? I think we'll be OK.... I don't know in what sense he could be younger. He's very much the same old soul."

lan McKellen starred as Gandalf in Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. "Gandalf the Grey was always the guy I prefer," McKellen said. "Gandalf the White was driven to do a particular job, whereas Gandalf the Grey is a bit more humane. He likes to party, and smokes and drinks and so on." That said, McKellen is happy to be returning as Gandalf the Grey, not Gandalf the White — the backfrom-the-dead incarnation seen in the later, darker stages of "The Lord of the Rings" narrative. "Gandalf the Grey was always the guy I prefer," he noted. "Gandalf the White was driven to do a particular job, whereas Gandalf the Grey is a bit more humane. He likes to party, and smokes and drinks and so on."

From hobbits to rings Tolkien published "The Hobbit" in 1937. The children's book is much shorter, and jauntier, than the trilogy that followed, and McKellen says that Jackson's prequel reflects that difference. "The whole atmosphere of the book, the tone of 'The Hobbit,' is of a kid's adventure story, told in the first person by Tolkien who is introducing young people to the notion of Middle-earth. A lot of it is very light-hearted. "It gets considerably darker in 'Lord of the Rings,' where, of course, it's about saving the world.... "However, 'The Hobbit' films a re going t o l ead o nto ' T h e Lord of the Rings.' Peter sees it as a six-part film and so there

are dark areas, and a lot of that lands on Gandalf's door, because he's the guy who is keeping an overall watch on the quest of the dwarves to regain their land and their gold from the dragon — and that will affect the actual stability of M i ddle-earth as a whole. "And so there's a sense of foreboding, and it's Gandalf who goes and roots that out whilst the dwarfs get on with having fun, really."

Not much haschanged For a time in the late-2000s, Guillermo Del Toro was going to direct "The Hobbit." The "Pan's Labyrinth" creator moved to New Zealand and spent several years working on the scripts and production strategies for what was then envisioned as a two-parter. But frustrated by the slow pace, the Mexican filmmaker finally quit the project. "I was disappointed not to have a chance to work with him," said McKellen, who met with del Toro several times. "And then disappointed that the film apparently wasn't going to be made at all. Then it all changed because Peter decided he would take it on after all."

M cKellen said t hat f o r a l l Jackson's success — "The Lord of the Rings" is one of the highe st-grossing film series of a l l time, and Jackson's Down Under studio complex and visual effects companies have transformed the New Zealand economy — the director is still very much the same fellow. "Everyone is older, and one would expect some changes, but only those that come with age," McKellen observes. "I don't detect that anyone's radically different. Peter, of course, is now a national hero in New Zealand. H e's knighted, he's now SirPeter, he hobnobs with prime ministers, he owns a lot of real estate, he owns a lot of aeroplanes ... and that's bound to have given him a self-confidencewhich perhaps he didn't have before. However, it's still the Peter Jackson who's absolutely enthralled by movies and by excess and fun, and that's all firmly in place." There is one notable change, however. "He wears shoes — he didn't usedto wear shoes. But I wouldn't say he's become more sophisticated. It's just that he wears shoes now. Perhaps his feet were beginning to ache."




y• • Film is more about the behind-the-scenes relationshipsthan the making of 'Psycho'

t><i '


ir Alfred Hitchcock remains one of the most famous directors in movie history, not only because of his droll public image but because of the enduring appeal of so many of his films. As someone who has tried with mixed success to show Hollywood classics to non-buff audiences, I've noticed how his very name inspires fond grins from many viewers, and how even some of his less-famous works undeniably hold their attention. He knew something universal a bout moviegoers, and it m a y come down to his most familiar theme, TheInnocent Man Wrongly Accused. It's surprising, then, that his most successful and in-

famous film, "Psycho" (1960), had no leading characters who were innocent, certainly not Norman Bates and not even the purported heroineplayed by Janet Leigh. "Hitchcock" is the second feature in a few months, after the made-for-HBO "The Girl," based on the life of the great man. "The Girl" is based on his unrequited lust for his leading lady Tippi Hedren, of "The Birds" and "Marnie," who so adamantly refused his advances. Her daughter Melanie Griffith told me that he cruelly sent the young girl a doll of her mother,displayed as a corpse in a coffin. No similar outrages are dramatized in "Hitchcock," which adopts the conventional feminist truism that behind every greatman therelurks a great woman. There may be truth in that, but the screenplay for " H itchcock" centers to a distracting degree on his marriage to the screenwriter and editor Alma Reville. As "Hitchcock" tells it, Reville (Helen Mirren) acted as his chief adviser, censor, muse and f r iend, and steered him through the uncertain waters leading up to "Psycho." It was a troubled time for Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins), who afterthe great popular success of "North by Northwest," could focus only on those critics who charged he was growing old and losing his

Heand his "Lord of the Rings" teamhave takenJ.R.R.Tolkien'sdensebut slight and more comical "Rings" prelude, a simple quest to rob a dragon, and blown it up into atrilogy. And since the first installment, "An Unexpected Journey," clocks in at almost three hours ... well, youseewhatliesahead ofus.The settings are gorgeous. Theeffects are spectacular. But in adding a prologue, in transposing characters from the "Rings" films into the narrative, and in having the luxury of including "Hobbit" minutia bythe bushel basketful, I have to say the bloat shows.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson portrays Vronsky and Alicia Vikander portrays Kitty in the drama "Anna Karenina."

From previous page The hardcore faithful won't admit it, but less cynical studios could have told this entire tale in three hours. Scenesand sequences are rich, but they go on too long, which turns this "Hobbit" from a brisk stroll into a bit of a slog. Andthat lesson screenwriters learn when studying the masters seemsutterly forgotten in the headlong march into making this book into atrilogy: Even Shakespeare needsediting. This film is available locally in 3-D and IMAX. Rating: Twoand ahalf stars. 169 minutes. (PG-13) — Roger Moore, McDlatchy-Tribtjne News Service "The OtherSon" —Two babies are born atabout the same time in anIsraeli hospital. One is Israeli. The other is Palestinian. They're evacuatedduring a missile attack, accidentally switched, andraised by each other's family for the next18 years. When the mistake is discovered, the repercussions on both sides arefraught, and it's revealing how the fathers are quicker to think of their "wrong" sons as nowbelonging tothe other side, while the mothers instinctively reach out to the boyto whom they gavebirth, while still embracing their switched son. Aportrait involving race, religion and identity. Directed andco-written by the French filmmaker Lorraine Levy.Rating: Three and a half stars. 105 minutes. (PG-13)

STILL SHOWING "Anna Karenina" —JoeWright's daringly stylized newversion of "AnnaKarenina" is staged largely within an actual theater, and usesnot only the stage but the boxesandeventhe mainfloor — with seats removed — to present the action. Keira Knightly, almost distractingly beautiful here, stars asTolstoy's heroine. Jude Lawis her dry and proper husband, agovernment minister, and AaronTaylor-Johnson plays Vronsky, the young military officer with whom she begins a disastrous affair. A sumptuous film, extravagantly staged andphotographed, perhaps too much so for its own good. There are times when it is not quite clear if weare looking at characters in a story or players on astage. Rating: Two and ahalf stars. 129 minutes. (R) "Argo" —BenAffleck directs and stars in the incredible true story of how, at the height of the Iranian hostage crisis, a CIAagent and a couple of Hollywood professionals dreamed upa cockamamie scheme to free six Americans who were not being held in theAmerican Embassy but had found refuge with the CanadianEmbassy. Kept top secret for18 years, the operation

created afake sci-fi production named"Argo," convinced the lranians it was real and used it to spirit the Americans out of the country. With lots of tension andalso somehumor from John Goodman andAlan Arkin as the Hollywood pros involved. Rating: Four stars. 120 minutes. (R) "End ofWatch" —Oneof the best police movies in recent years, a virtuoso joining of performances andstartling action. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena asTaylor and Zavala, two LosAngeles street cops who bendafew rulesbutmustbeacknowledgedas heroes. They're transferred to a tough district, where their persistence leadsthem to aMexican drug cartel operating in L.A. This is really an assignment for a detective, but they don't avoid risk, and eventually become sodangerous to the cartel that a hit is ordered against them. Rating: Four stars. 109 minutes. (R) "Flight" — After opening with one of the most terrifying flying scenes I've witnessed, in which an airplane is saved bybeing flown upside-down, Robert Zemeckis' "Flight" segues into a brave and tortured performance byDenzel Washington — one of his very best. Not often does amovie character makesuch aharrowing personal journeythat keeps us indeepsympathy all of the way. Washington plays aveteran commercial pilot who has built up a tolerance for quantities of alcohol and cocaine that would belethal for most people. Rating: Four stars.138 minutes. (R) "Holy Motors" —Anexasperating, frustrating, anarchicfilm about an unexplained man(Denis Lavant) whospendsa long dayinthe backofa white stretch limousine, being driven from one "appointment" to another. In eachappointment he embodies a different bizarre character, linked only bythe desire of a mime orcomedian to entertain and amazeus. Hispersonas areso diverse it would be futile to try to linkthem, or find a thread of narrative or symbolism. The first film in13 years from LeosCarax, who may bethe new JacquesTati. This film screens atTin Pan Theater in Bend.Rating: Threeand ahalf stars. 116 minutes. (no MPAArating) "Killing ThemSoftly" — Set in a dreary and barren post-Katrina NewOrleans, a cruel drama about organized crime with a cast muchbetter than it deserves. After an ill-advised stickup of a high-stakes mob-organized poker game, a series of mobexecutions threatens to pretty much wipe out the local syndicate. OK.But no suspense, romance orhumor? Only dry, weary dialogue, suffering and blood?Afraid so. Starring Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, JamesGandolfini, Richard Jenkins. Rating: Twostars. 97 minutes. (R)

Tosave himself and the experimental medication that gives him great physical and mental power, he travels from Alaskato Manila, fighting off wolves, drone missiles and assassination, while hooking up with Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz), a biochemist who knowsall about the medication. The action scenes are gripping in the moment, but go ontoo long and don't add up; the dialogue scenes(with Edward Norton, Stacy Keach andScott Glenn), are well-acted; the plot is a murky muddle.

"Life of Pi" — A miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery. Inspired by aworldwide best-seller that seemedunfilmable, it is a triumph over its difficulties. It is also a moving spiritual achievement, a moviewhose title could have been shortened to "Life." The story involves the 227 days that its teenagehero (Suraj Sharma) spends drifting across the Pacific in the same lifeboat as aBengal tiger. Themovie quietly combines various religious traditions to enfold its story in the wonder of life. How remarkable that these two mammals, and the fish beneath them andbirds above them, are all here. One ofthe year's best. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Four stars. 125 minutes. (PG) "Lincoln" — Steven Spielberg's newfilm focuses on only afew months of Lincoln's life, including the passage of the13th Amendment ending slavery, the surrender of the Confederacy andhis assassination. Rarely has a film attended more carefully to the details of politics. Daniel Day-Lewis creates a Lincoln who is calmly self-confident, patient and willing to play politics in a realistic way. Not about an icon of history, but about a president who wasscorned by someof his opponents asahayseedfrom thebackwoods. He understood them better than they did him.

From previous page "Samsara" — Afilm composed of powerful images, most magnificent, some shocking, all photographed with great care in the highest possible HD resolution — or in 70mm, if you can find it. Filmed over a period of five years, in locations in 25 countries, it is the kind of experienceyou simply sink into. It intensely regards the strangeness andwonder of our planet, drawing a sharp contrast between the awe of nature andthe sometimes ruthless imposition of man's will. Directed by RonFricke, who also made the notable "Baraka" (1992). Rating: Four stars. 102 minutes. (PG-13) "Seven Psychopaths" — Colin Farrell stars as ablocked Hollywood screenwriter who finds inspiration from a loony group of psychopaths, some in his life and some in his imagination. Christopher Walkenexcels as a professional dog-napper, Sam Rockwell is his partner andWoody Harrelson is a relentless gangster who comes looking for Bonny, his beloved Shih Tzu, which they hold ashostage. Inspired goofiness written and directed by Martin McDonagh ("In Bruges"). Rating: Threeand ahalf stars. 109 minutes. (R) "Skyfall" - wSkyfall" triumphantly reinvents 007 in oneof the best Bonds ever made.This is afull-blooded, joyous, intelligentcelebration of a beloved cultural icon, with Daniel Craig taking full possession of arole heearlier played unconvincingly. Thefilm at last provides a role worthy of Judi Dench, returning as M,who is oneof the best actors of her generation. She isall but the co-star, with a lot of screen time, poignant dialogue, and a character who is far more complexand sympathetic than we expect. In this 50th year ofthe James Bondseries, with the dismal "Quantum of Solace" (2008) still in our minds, I don't know what I expected in Bond No.23, but certainly not an experience this invigorating. If you haven't seen a 007 for years, this is the time to jump back in. Rating: Four stars. 143 minutes. (PG-13) "The Twilight Saga:BreakingDawn — Part 2" —Fifth and final installment of the "Twilight" series, beginning where the previous oneended, as Bella Cullen (Kristen Stewart) gives birth to little Renesmee,and isintroduced by her husband, EdwardCullen (Robert Pattinson), to her new life with vampire powers. In the process Bella hasalso been miraculouslytransformed into a much more interesting character. The birth of the infant leads to asensational climax involving the Washington state vampires andthe Volturi of Italy, self-appointed rulers of vampiredom. Rating: Twoand ahalf stars. 115 minutes. (PG-13) "Wreck-It Ralph" — Thenew Disney animated feature for families takes place inside several arcade-style videogames,providinganexcuse for the backgrounds, ground rules and characters to constantly reinvent themselves. Its hero is one of those clumsy, misunderstood big guys who dream only of being loved.

Lively, endlessly colorful nonstop action, also with JaneLynch andSarah Silverman. Rating: Three stars.101 minutes. (PG)
