What a cold way tosupport a cause! Bendites jumped into the Deschutes River at Riverbond Park onSaturday, raising money for the Special Olympics. But why immerse yourself in freezing water just so you can struggle to dry off and warm

12,000+ pltfngers In this country, polar bear plunges aren't for the cold-hearted — people often payto jump into ice-cold water to benefit charitable causes, suchas Special Olympics, collectively raising about $15 million ayear. In Maryland, there's onemassive plunge — "Plungapalooza," probably beating out all others in theU.S. It's a giant extremesports and musicfestival, but the mainevent is aplunge — usually in January, but this year in March — into ChesapeakeBay,all to benefit Special Olympics. Morethan 12,000 tookthe plunge in2008, with thousands morebundled onthe sidelines. InLongBeach,N. Y.,thousands of people havejumped into the ocean every SuperBowl Sunday.
Midwestern polar bearplungeshave happened in subzero surface temps. Probably not thecoldest dips ever, but aBritish man gave that a run(or a swim)for its money. Lewis Gordon Pugh,an ocean advocate, finished abone-chilling swim at the North Polein 2007. WearingonlySpeedosandaswim cap,hejumpedintoan icy crack andswam1 kilometer in minus-29-degree waters. A little closer to home, it's too cold to do much ofanything, let alone swim. Thesnowstorms that socked Oregonthis month forced plunge organizers to postpone events in Portland, Eugene and Corvallis. But Bend's event went just fine.

WHAT HAPPENS TOYOU IN THE WATER • First, yourskin (which feels cold faster than warmth) chills, leading to hyperventilation and a sudden increase in heart rate andblood pressure. This responsepeaks30seconds into the plunge. • Then yourbloodactually changes — the excessive breathing and inability to hold a breath affects carbon dioxide, calcium and pH levels, weakening your muscles. • As the cold sinks into your muscles andnerves, you may feel temporarily paralyzed. (Athicker layer of fat lessens the impact.) yourheart is strained. It's unlikely anyone would die of hypothermia during quick periods of exposure (for anaverageadult, a halfhour or less). Butheart attacks, cold shockanddrowning can, of course, kill you quickly.

Dedt Ceiling bill —President Barack Obamaon Saturday signed separate measures into law to lift the federal debt limit and restore benefits that had beencut for younger military retirees. Obama signed the bills during a weekendgolf vacation in Southern California. The debt limit measure allows the government to borrow moneyto pay its bills, such asSocial Security benefits and federal salaries. Failure to pass the measure, which theSenatepassed67-31 earlier this week andsent to Obamafor his signature, most likely would have sent the stock market into a nosedive. The Treasury Department is now free to borrow regularly through March 15,2015, meaning lawmakers won't have to revisit the issue until a newCongress is sworn in after the Novemberelections.

Syria talkS —U.N.-Arab Leaguemediator Lakhdar Brahimi ended direct talks between theSyrian government andopposition Saturday without finding a way of breaking the impasse in peace talks. Saturday's talks, which lasted less than half an hour, left the future of the negotiating process in doubt and nodate was set for a third session. Brahimi told a newsconference that both sides agreedthat the agenda for the next round should focus on four points: ending the violence and terrorism, creating a transitional governing body, building national institutions, and reconciliation. Toavoid losing another week or more before resuming discussions, Brahimi said heproposed that the first day should be reserved for talks on ending violence andcombating terrorism, the main thrust of the government's stance, andthe second for talking about how to create atransitional body.

WASHINGTON WEEK WASHINGTONBoth chambers of Congress voted last weekto raise the nation's debt ceiling, avoiding another political showdown like the one that closed the federal government for more than two weeks in October. Thebill suspends the limit on the nation's debt until March 2015, when theadditional debt incurred by the government would be added to thecurrent total of $17.2 trillion. The measure raising the limit was a "clean" bill, meaning neither Democrats nor Republicans tried to wring concessions out of the other side by attaching policy riders to the fiscal bill. In the House, the bill passed Tuesday by a221 to 201 margin, with all but 28 of the yes votes coming from Democrats. Two Democrats and199 Republicans voted against the measure. U.S. HOUSEVOTE

FRANKLIN ARTHUR TROSTEL April 4, 1936 - February 7, 2014 Frank Trostel had awonderful life, suddenly cut short. From a modestbeginning in Garrett, lndiana, hewent on to go to Manchester College in North Manchester, followed bymedical training at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. He graduated 3rd in his class in1961. Following graduation, hemoved to Portland, Oregon,where hewas in private practice for the next 34 years. Hewasloved by his patients, whodepended onhis expertise, as wellashis wisdom,humor andpractical advice to a wide range of problems. Oneof the favorite parts of his practice was the delivery of babies, whom hedelivered, took care of to adulthood andhelped deliver babies of their own.

He was deeply involved in the medical profession. Being Chief of Staff at Portland Osteopathic Hospital, serving asPresident and later Executive Director of the OregonOsteopathic Association, being on the Boardof Directors at Portland Osteopathic Hospital, servingasActing Administrator and Medical Director for four years at the same hospital, were only the beginning of his involvement. He wasappointed to the Board of Medical Examiners by Governor BobStraub andreappointed by GovernorTomMcCall. Many organizations and committees benefited from his participation. In addition to his verybusy life in the medical community, hefound time to start a family by marrying Dorothy Schreier. They had two daughters. Aviation had alwaysbeena passion, so in1963 he becamea pilot, qualifying for private, commercial and seaplane ratings, with an IFR endorsement. He joined the OregonCivil Air Patrol, serving asMedical Officer and check pilot in the L1 9"Bird dog" and Cherokee180 aircraft. In 1969 hebecamea Senior Aviation Medical Examiner for the FAA. This wasanaspect of his medical practice that he enormouslyenjoyed. Talking to pilots of the smallest single engine airplanes, to pilots of 747sandeverything in between, was always a highlight of his day. He continued asSeniorAviation Medical Examiner until retirement in 2001. He and hissecondwife, Ariste Lapschee,moved to Bend,Oregon in 1996. They lovedthe area andthe people. There he practiced medicine for 5 years inSisters,OR,followed by 4 yearsat Volunteers in Medicine, upon retirement from private practice. Thehonors hereceived in the course of his professional life were numerous. Frank Trostel wasa manof manyinterests. Medicine, aviation, wood-working, birding, wild flower hunting, photography, travel in the United States(Hawaii and the Southwest were favorite destinations), aswell asEurope, he found engrossing. Spending time in Pacific City at the cabin there, for fishing, crabbing, boating and family gettogethers, werefavorite pastimes. History, books,classical music (except opera) and languages,all filled his spare time. He was eternally curious about all aspects of life. One of the most important things in his life washis family. He is survived byhis belovedwife, Ariste; his two daughters, LisaandJill; and stepsons,Trentand Loren;all of whom are deeply saddened by his passing. In addition, there are six grandchildren,aswell ashis sister in Ohio andhis brother in the Portland area. He had anextended family and manyfriends that he cherishedandwho cherished him.

PREP SWIMMING: DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS
Tanaka proving not dorn to rnn TAMPA, Fla.— As dozens of cameras recorded his every move and perhaps 150media watched on acool and breezy morning, Masahiro Tanakaslowly jogged four laps on the warning trackaround a back field following his first official workout with the NewYork Yankees. The $155 million man looked gassed. Hemay pitch great, but Tanaka clearly was not born to run. "I actually didn't know I was going to run this much," he said through a translator Saturday. "And I'm a little bit of a slow runner. But that part I really can't help." The 25-year-old righthander jogged onto the field with Hiroki Kuroda and played catch with his 39-year-old countryman, who is preparing for his seventh U.S.season. When it was time to throw his bullpen session, Tanakatook a mound on field No. 3 between Kurodaand ace CC Sabathia, with Ivan Nova at the far end. Tanaka hasquickly found a senpai (respected elder) to his kohai (protege). "I feel very fortunate and very thankfulthat he is here," Tanakasaid. "He is a veteran here in the majors." Tanaka went 24-0 with a1.27 ERA last
year and led theRakuten Golden Eagles to their first Japan Series title. Media crowded the path to field No. 3when Tanaka emergedwith Kuroda, and cameramen jostled for position in foul territory behind third base and in left field to capture his tossing in the outfield and his 32 pitches, his second bullpen since arriving in the U.S. After the bullpen and fielding practice, he made the roughly one-mile run with Nova, Francisco Rondonand Danny Burawa. "Honestly, when I stepped out onthefield today, I wasvery, very surprised as tohow many mediathere were out there," hesaid. "As a player, I feelvery honored to get this muchattention. Some ofthefans were cheering today,and actually I wasvery happy to receive thosecheers. Butat the sametime I understand that I haven't given outany results on thefieldyet,so myfocus is to train and goout there and try to get those results."

These moments of defeat paleto Bogataj's agony • Slovenian skier's fall lives on in sporting lore as'Wide World of Sports' opener By Rich Hofmann Philadelphia Daily News
The opening sequence, in many ways, defined sports television in the 1960s, '70s and
'80s. On Saturday afternoon, pretty much every Saturday afternoon, the familiar mu-
sic would play in the background and the great Jim McKay would read these words: "Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport. The thrill of victory ... ... and the agony of defeat. The h u man d r am a o f ath l etic competition. This is ABC's 'Wide World of Sports.' "
The video that accompanied the narration changed through the years, except for one part — the agony-of-defeat part. As soon as ABC got the tape of a 1970 ski jumping event in Oberstdorf, in what was
then West Germany, the image was set — of
Vinko Bogataj, a ski jumper from Slovenia, tumbling and falling off the ramp, taking out a sign and landing in the crowd. In what might be my favorite Olympic

moment, I got to meet the Agony of Defeat Guy in Sarajevo in 1984 — and to find out
that his attitude about the whole thing was just about perfect. As he said, "I look at it this way. I would
prefer it to be a shot of me being a champion. But if it can't be, well, why not?"
We see it every Olympics, the kaleidoscope of losing, the pictures of Shaun White and Shani Davis and the rest. This was dif-
ferent, though. Bogataj had made a universal connection with American sports fans and understood it well. Acclaimed ABC
producer Roone Arledgewrote the line, McKay delivered it, and Bogataj cemented

it in our consciousness. Even now, I cannot
watch ski jumping at the Olympics without thinking about it. The other day, I looked on-demand at a clip of a ski jumping fall during the competition and it was nothing — just a bit of a stumble and fall on the landing. Bogataj's fall was legendary. As weather conditions deteriorated that day in Oberstdorf, the jump was getting too fast to be safe
— but he went anyway. "I realized that something was wrong," he said. "I tried not to go, tried to stop my-
self. But the speed was too big, about 105 kilometers an hour (about 65 mph). So I did everything I was able to do.... "Twenty meters from the edge, I fell on the right side of the ski jump. When I was lying on the ground, everyone was afraid to even touch me. They were afraid something serious had happened. They went to get the doctor. The first reaction came when I tried
to get up myself. Then the people came. "I didn't feel any pain at first. I was just
angry it happened. People kept telling me that it had to hurt. It looked so dangerous." A few years after it began using the tape, ABC sent Bogataj a copy. He said: "I was aware that it probably looked pretty bad. But I had a feeling that I was going to see a certain picture. And as it turned out, it was
almost exactly like I picture it in my head. But I still get nervous when I see it."
In 1980, ABC had a big dinner in New York for some of the more memorable participants in the "Wide World of Sports"

arranged for a few reporters by ABC, he was in Sarajevo to work as a starter at the 70-meter ski jump. That day, as he stood on the hill, Bogataj watched as one of the few medal favorites from Yugoslavia, Primoz Ulaga, completely bombed and finished second-to-last in the competition. Bogataj and Ulaga were friends, both from Slovenia, which was one of the socialist republics that then stood un-
steadily beneath the same national umbrella. Sarajevo is in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a different republic. About 25,000spectators crowded onto the hill that day, ready to cheer on Ulaga. When he did so badly, they all left — but not before a vicious round of booing and whistling in derision. Bogataj explained away the reaction as coming from a group of people who did not

New suits, but same problems forspeedskaters By David Pace The Associated Press
SOCHI, Russia — Maybe it wasn't the suits after all.
After shedding their new, high-tech skinsuits for their old-fashioned gear, American speedskaters still were without a medal at the Sochi Olympics. Zbigniew Brodka won Poland's first gold medal in the men's 1,500 meters, finishing 0.003 seconds ahead ofKoen Verweij of the Nether-
lands. It was one of the closest 1,500 finishes in Olympic history. Brodka and Verweij were initially shown on the scoreboard to be tied for the top spot, but when the time was broken down to the thousandths, the victory went to Brodka in 1 minute,

By Irene Middleman Thomas Fort Worth Star-Telegram
I'm no wine connoisseur. I have enjoyed many a $10bottle without wishing it was a $100 bottle. Yet, I recently found myself beaming uncontrollably while visiting wineries in the picturesque Sonoma County town of Healdsburg, about an hour's drivenorth of San Francisco. Not only was I partaking of sublime sauvignon blancs and zinfandels in one of their best growing regions, but I was doing it via Segway. Three valleys in this northern Sonoma area — nick-
named "Winery Central" be-

Segway sightseeing I had never ridden a Segway, a fact that surely added to my senseofadventure.I'd onlyseen them at my kids' high school, where the security guards patrol corridors. Segways, also known as Personal Transport-
ers, were firstmade available in 2001, and are the first self-balancing, electric-powered trans-
portation machines, using five gyroscopes and a built-in computer to stay upright. Besides their use by police and security operations in venues such as high schools, shopping malls and an increasing number of urban areas, some 600 tour organizations worldwide employ Segways as a lively sightseeing tool. During the 20-minute in-
troduction given by our helpful tour guide, Josh, I was equipped with a helmet and a dose of confidence-boosting knowledge, and quickly lost my initial trepidation. In short
order, I was practicing and perfecting figure eights around the parking lot on my "trusty steed," aptly named "Chardonnay." We were individually coached on do's and don't's, and with a maximum speed of just 128 mph, I felt safe, even with the prospect of traveling to wineries.
"NO taking pictures, no texting, no drinking water, and no overindulging!" Josh warned the group of riders. He packed my camera and water bottle in

West took the ace and continued with the ten of spades, and South ruffed again and was in trouble: West had more trumps that he did. South cashed his remaining trumps, the AK of clubs and the A-K of diamonds, but when he led a diamond to his queen, West ruffed. The defense took the rest; down one. At the other table, West perpetrated a double of four hearts that was horrible in more ways than one. East's jump to tw o spades was preemptive, so West couldn't be sure of beating six hearts, much less four. Moreover, the double told South that trumps were splitting badly. When West led the jack of spades, South preserved his trump length by discarding a club. On the next spade, South threw a diamond. He ruffed the

prostaglandin E2, and other key enzymatic COX-2 pathway substances in the management of pain caused by inflammation. In a pilot study comparing it to 400 mg of ibuprofen over nine hours, results suggest that alpha acids from hops may represent a natural alternative for minor pain and inflammation, possibly providing important long-term safety advantages over OTC pain relievers.

Turmeric. Curcumin, in the Indian herb turmeric, is a powerful COX2 inhibitor; it also blocks 5-LOX and other inflammatory factors. Fu<hermore, its antioxidant activity neutralizes both reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitrogen oxygen species (NOS) preventing these free radicals from creating inflammation.
f you've eversuffered from a headache, joint pain, toothache, backache, or aching muscles after a hard physical event, you've experiencedthe body's infl ammatory processes at work. It' s the body's way of trying to heal itself. Unfortunately, sometimes the pain is difficult to bear. While there are plenty of common over-the-counter (OTC) medications, such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen, that will get rid of painful symptoms, they may upset the stomach. Worse, long-term use of these drugs can cause serious gastrointestinal issues like bleeding ulcers. Fortunately, there are natural alternative.
8%ite 8$lotp. The bark of this ancient botanical, used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since 500 A.D., contains salicin, which was later purified to salicylic acid and then synthesized into acetylsalicylic acid. Acetylsalicylic acid is what constitutes aspirin. Aspirin is often used to treat pain and fever, but the drug is notorious for causing pain and damage to the stomach mucosal lining and is not recommended in conjunction with blood-thinning medications. The salicin in white willow alone is not enough to reduce pain or inflammation; however, in conjunction with antioxidant polyphenol and flavonoid compounds, the bark's compounds were found to be effective for back pain without stomach distress.
The Pain Cascade It starts with the arachidonic acid cascade of inflammation. Arachidonic acid (ARA) is an omega-6 fatty acid that is produced from linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid. When there is too much of it, the body produces a variety of enzymes — COX-1, COX-2, and 5-LOX — to break it down. Unfortunately, these enzymes can cause some serious sideeffects.O ver expression of COX-1 may cause blood clots,leading to heart attacks and strokes. COX-2 and 5-LOX produce compounds involved in chronic inflammation, destroying joints, tissues, causing pain, and setting the stage for degenerative disease.

DHA helps build better memories The omega-3 fatty docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is essential for brain development in infants and is known to improve mood and memory in adults. Canadianresearchersconductedananima lexperiment to determine exactly why DHA improves memory. When they compared the effects of a regular diet and a high-DHA diet in mice, the researchers discovered that DHA levels in the hippocampus increased by 30 percent. The higher concentration of DHA in this part of the brain led to memory cells that better communicated with each other.

L-tryptophan influences gut inflammation The relationship between diet, intestinal bacteria, and immunity continues to expand. A team of Austrian and German researchers were studying the role of an enzyme, angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), which is involved in blood pressure. In the process they discovered that the enzyme also controls how L-tryptophan, an amino acid found in protein, functions. When people do not consume sufficient L-tryptophan, the types of bacteria in our digestive tract changes, leading to diarrhea and infIamed intestines. When the researchers increased the amount of L-tryptophan in the diets of laboratory mice, their gut bacteria returned to normal and their inAammation decreased. The findings are particularly relevant to people who suffer from protein malnutrition, who often develop diarrhea and inflamed intestines.

Travail Kitchen & Amusements, a restaurant in a Min-
neapolis suburb with a cultlike following, became a prime example of these concerns when it completed an immensely successful Kickstarter cam-
paign in October. Seeking $75,000 for a relocation and expansion, Travail netted almost twice that amount in 24
hours. The monthlong drive eventually brought in more than $255,000. "I don't get it," a local columnist, Jon Tevlin, wrote in The
Star Tribune. Why, he asked, were so manypeople willing to subsidize a for-profit business'?
How crowdfundingworks The money raised through sites like Kickstarter is essen-
tially a donation. Creators seek fundsforaspecificprojectand typicall y off er goods or services in return, but those who back the project receive no
stake in the enterprise. Congress legislated "equity crowdfunding" in 2012, but the Secu-
rities and Exchange Commission is still drafting the rules. Tevlin said his column drew
amixed response. While many agreed with his skeptical take, younger readers tended to take
a different view. "They saw it as a contribution to the local culture, almost like giving to the local art institute," he said. "It's not how I would choose to
spend my money. If I give to a startup restaurant, I would expect stock or a cut of the
proceeds." Lynette Krajewski started a fundraising campaign in September to open Community Oven, a bakery and pizza shop in Rockland, Maine. Her previous restaurant, which closed

Outlook:Consider airlines as long-term investments Vicki Bryan
Airline shareholders had a very good year in 2013, as stocks of the leading carriers soared on growing revenue and profits. In 2013, the Arca index of global airline stocks rose 58 percent, more than doubling the gain of broader indexes like the Dow Jones industrial average and the Standard 8 Poor's 500. Most U.S. airline stocks did even better, with some more than doubling. The airlines' newfound prosperity will last, says Vicki Bryan, a credit analyst for bond-research firm Gimme Credit.

Will airlines get stronger or weaker thls year? I see more chances for them to actually strengthen.

ith good reason, most eyes are on Oregon State Univer-
sity — Cascades Campus. Its rapid development and pending expansion promise educational opportunities once unimaginable in Central Oregon. No wonder it's the brightest star in
NEIN ARIZONA CA L IFORNIA
And yet, it's important that other institutions do not get lost in the glare.
Two of particular importance come to mind: St. Charles Health System and Central Oregon Community College. Both are critical to the wellbeing
and prosperity of our area, if not the
region and state. Both exist in a whirlwind of change, and both face significant leadership decisions.

Those factors addup to the perfect storm of opportunity — if handled well. Where the two differ is that one is a public institution and the other is a
private, not-for-profit corporation. That said, however, theyboth are public trusts.
A nd, whichever waythey decideto go, we'll all live with the impacts. Jim Middleton, who is retiring as president of COCC at the end of this
academicyear, has been at the helm of thecollegeforadecade. Inthat time, the branch of Oregon
State University set up house on his campus as a two-year, degree-granting capstone partner with COCC. The plan at the beginning was that students could satisfy the first two
years of college at COCC, then finish theirbaccalaureat edegreesatOSU. Integrating those two couldn't have
been an easytask, but Middletonand of course OSU-Cascades leader Becky Johnson-pulled it off. Thousands of students who would not have finished college now have degrees. But the challenges remain and are growmg. There are questions — shortsight-
ed, Ibelieve — about the value of higher education, usually expressed in the pecuniary language of Return on Investment. Gov. John Kitzhaber has plans to
substantiallyincrease the number of degree holders, whichputs further demands on both COCC and OSU.
And OSU is in theprocess of developing a separate campus for what it hopes will someday be an independent university.
Now, we have to select a new leader for COCC. If there is good news in this, the
process at a public institution is public. Meetings are open. We can all watch
the discussions and count the votes. And we can judge whether there is a match between mission and leader.

saesu o hould Oregon taxpayers borrow $200 million to advance cancer research at Oregon Health 8 Science University? If it does, say advocates, the state will gain $1 billion in philanthropic donations, half f r om Phil and Penny Knight and the rest from other donors around the country who will respond to the Knights' challenge gift. The result, they say, will be groundbreaking cancer research that will change the face of the disease and the lives of those who suffer from it. Heady stuff. But it's not a simple question. There are hundreds, probably thousands, of projects that could benefit from an infusion of cash via the state's borrowing power. This one rises to the head of the line because of the Knights' offer, the promise that the benefit is not just $200 million but really $1.2 billion. Is that an unfair advantage, as somecriticshave said,oran opportunity to be embraced? Clearly the latter, and not just because of the significant dollars i nvolved. Those dollars will b e matched with the vision of Brian Druker, the head of the Knight Cancer Institute at OHSU. His work led to development of the drug Gleevec, which has dramatically improved cancer treatment.
OHSU PresidentJoe Robertson says the project will be transformational for cancer and for Oregon. He describes bringing 20-30 world-class scientists into a Bell Labs, Apollo space mission-type effort to improve early cancer detection and treatment. Collateral benefits include hundreds of jobs, both in construction and research, constituting a significant economic stimulus. The state'smoney would be used to construct buildings, and a prompt decision from the Legislature would allow the university to start the planning process even before it receives the funds. There's plenty of precedent for the state to provide bonding capacity for OHSU infrastructure. The Legislature must balance the many demands for taxpayer resources, large and small. It's likely this project would go forward without a state investment, although at a smaller level and a slower pace. OHSU is seeking to capitalize on the confluence of Druker's vision and the Knights' money. The potential payoff is huge — in jobs, in science, in health and in prestige — and the state should help assure its success.
Deschutes should use discretion on weed fines Deschutes County commissioners have put off adopting a new noxious weed ordinance to give the public more time to comment on it. That's a good thing. The ordinance wouldgive the county a smoother path to fining those who refuse to address noxious weed problems on their property.Currently only a sheriff's deputy may write a ticket for the violation of state law; the new ordinance would allow the county weed inspector to do so, as well. There would be limits on that power. The proposed ordinance requires the inspector to follow county policy on code enforcement. That policy, in turn, sets out how enforcement would work. First, the county would become involved only if someone complained about weeds on a particular piece of property. Second,the policy aims at getting voluntary compliance with code and uses fines as a last resort. County officials can ask the court to dismiss charges as late as the scheduled court date if a property owner agrees to work on the problem. There are good reasons for wanting to keep noxious weeds
native plants and animals. Puncturevine, as one example, can flatten bike tires and hurt people if stepped on. There's not much of it in Deschutes County, says Ed Keith, the county forester, and in an area where biking has become a tourist draw, officials don't want it to gain a foothold. Other plants, among them water hemlock, are poisonous. Still others — knapweed and mulleinare eyesores. County officials admit that not all noxious weeds can be eradicated. Their presence can be reduced, however. Some can be wiped out and others can be kept at bay. All three are valuable goals. Weed control is, ultimately, up to property owners. State law recognizes that by making property owners subject to fines ranging from $130 to $2,000 when they refuse to do so. The county has promised touse persuasion as a first line of defense against weeds and use fines only as a last resort. The only way it's good to give the county the authority to hand out $2,000 fines is if commissioners track it and ensure that the fines are issued with the proper in check. They go beyond loss of discretion.

anyahu is asking Palestinians to recognize Israel as the "nation state of
the Jewish people," confirming that if Israel cedes them a state in the West Bank, there will be two-states-for-

BOOKS INBRIEF Kaion to revive Mitford Yearsseries NEW YORK — Jan Karon is going backto Mitford. Nearly a decadeafter the novelist announced she was done with her multimillion-selling Mitford Years series, she has signed up with G.P. Putnam's Sons for two more installments about the fictional North Carolina town and such residents as Father Tim Kavanaugh and his wife, Cynthia. The next release, "Somewhere SafeWith Somebody Good," is scheduled for September. Karon said in a statement issued Tuesday by Putnam that her decision to resume the Mitford series proves that one should "never say never." She has written nine previous Mitford books, most recently "Light From Heaven," published in 2005. Putnam is an imprint of Penguin RandomHouse.

many as the court's cells can hold. (If Velasco is the fastest, Magistrate Judge Charles Pyle is known for takingthe longest — two hours and 35 minutes
for 70 defendants last week.) "The whole thing is basically about meeting the minimum requirements so as not
to violate your rights," Saul Huerta, a lawyer hired by the government at $110 an hour to
