A new, nine-unit hangar is under construction at Bend Municipal Airport, marking the first new building activ-

that extra helping of


ity there in more than three years. Aero Facilities, an aviation construction company operating out of the airport, started work on the 14,300-

square-foot hangar earlier this month on the airport's east side. The hangar is expected to be finished in February or March, said Gwil Evans,

president of Aero Facilities. The project represents a small leap of faith for Aero Facilities, which is building the hangar without buyers picked out in advance. "We think we have two interested buyers, but nothing is carved in stone yet,"

Evans said. He said the buyers were Central Oregon aviation companies but declined to provide specific information about the buyers. "I havesome very interested parties," he said. See Hangar/A4

to school security, if any result, remain to be seen. Many safety practices are already standard across schools. Among them: Only one entrance is the primary access point — all other doors are locked; visitors must check in at the front office and wear a visitor's badge. "It's just reinforcing what we do is important, and we have things in place for a reason," said Principal Susan Heberlein of High Lakes Elementary School in Bend. "That certainly has been prominent in everybody's thoughts this week." For example, on Wednesday Heberlein didn't immediately see a visitor's badge on a father who had dropped by to visit a student.

College graduates spend less leisure time than high school dropouts. More people are injured on toilets than by skiing or snowboarding. More households have dogs as pets than cats, but cat lovers are more likely to have multiple pets.

the national economy. Republicans should "peel off the war paint" and take the deal he's offering, Obama said sharply at the White House. But he drew a quick retort from Boehner when the White

House threatened to veto afallback bill drafted by House Republicans that would prevent tax increases for all but million-dollar earners. The president will bear responsibility for "the largest tax increase in his-

"I will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed at preventing more tragedies like this," Obama said. T he deaths Friday of 2 7 people, 20 of them children, in a school shooting in Newtown, Conn., appears to have softened opposition to gun control among some Democratic lawmakers, particularly in the Senate. But there has been little indication that Republicans who control the House of Representatives are willing to accept new restrictions. Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C., said in an interview that he thought the talk of gun control was "probably a rush to judgment" that missed the real issue. "I think it's more of a mental health problem than a gun problem right now," he said.

State Department reSignatiOnS — ThreeState Department officials resigned under pressureWednesday, less than aday after a damning report blamed management failures for a lack of security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, where militants

killed the U.S.ambassador and three other Americans on Sept. 11. The resignations came aslawmakers expressed anger andfrustration over the findings of an independent review panel, and the State

At the same time, schools took strides to keep the focus f or students on learning not lengthy discussions about security measures. "We're r eally t r y in g t o — especially at the elementary level — just try and keep things as normal as we can for kids," said Principal Matt Montoya at Bear Creek Elementary in Bend. Like the other educators, he said the events in Connecticut put increased focus on safetymeasures. Those include staff making sure visitors are signed in and being visible in hallways before and after class. Redmond School District Superintendent Mike M clntosh agreed. "People are more aware of the things we do every day and that changes sometimes the level of thought we put into who's walking across the parking lot," he said. Counselors were available in area schools for students to talk about the events in Newtown, Conn., where a young shooter on Friday killed six school staffers, 20 students

Continued from A1 The University of Connecticut honored the shooting victims Monday with a ceremony before a m e n's b asketball game, with 26 students standing at center court holding lighted candles. "I am feeling that there is more anger toward the mother than there is toward the son," said Lisa Sheridan, a Newtown parent. " Why w ould a wo m a n who had a son like this, who clearly had serious issues, keep assault rifles in the house and teach him how to shoot them?" she said. "To deal with that, there's a feeling here that we're just going to focus on the 26 innocent people who died at the school." Emotions in Newtown are painfully raw. A h alf-dozen more funerals and remembrances were held Wednesday, creating almost nonstop funeral processions during the day. Black hearses and limousines drove through the streets, led by police escorts. Nearly 50 police motorcycles, from departments all over the state, were parked outside St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church, waiting to escort the next funeral. Firefighters and police in formal dress uniforms lined the church driveway as a funeral procession arrived. A man in jeans and a flannel shirt watched from a nearby Starbucks parking lot, wearing a green-and-white ribbon in honor of the Sandy Hook colors. Men in b lack suits filed out of the funeral, many of them wearing white shirts and green ties. Women wept as they walked out of funeral services for yet another child. Nancy Lanza apparently broke no laws and suffered a violent, tragic death.

They see her as a victim like any of the others. But for some, how to refer to her — and what to think of her — is a subject of much conversation. While there are some who call her the first victim, many feel she bears at least some of the blame. "Maybe somewhere there is a deep thought that the shooter'smother could be responsible for leaving the guns available," said Himansu Patel, the Newtown Convenience and Deli owner, who decided to leave Nancy Lanza out of his memorial to the victims. When President Obama came to Newtown this week and spoke at an interfaith memorial service, he went out of his way to mention the names of all26students, faculty members and staff members who died at the school. He never mentioned Nancy Lanza. Much remains unknown about Adam Lanza and his mother. But everyone here knows that Nancy, 52, was the legally registered owner of the powerful .223-caliber, military-style Bushmaster rifle that was used in the nation's second-deadliestmass shooting. And they have heard that federal investigators have determined that mother and son visited numerous shooting ranges together. It is also known that Adam

Lanza had psychological or emotional problems that made the most basic elements of daily life — such as school and social settings — challenging for him. The state medical examiner said he had been advised that Adam had A sperger's syndrome, a developmental disorder that is not associated with violence. Those facts have left questions hanging over Newtown. Did Nancy Lanza do enough to keep her guns out of her son's hands'? Should she have helped a young man with psychological problems learn how to shoot? Alexander Isgut, a N ewtown pediatrician, said his daughter bought Nancy Lanza's house in Kingston, N.H., where sheli ved before moving to Newtown in 1998. He said his daughter still lives in the house and is friends with Nancy Lanza's brother, who lives next door. Isgut said he never met Nancy Lanza. But he said many parents in Newtown, some of whom he has been treating for stress, cannot understand how Adam Lanza gained access to his mother's guns, which also included several semiautomatic handguns. "If you are going to have an army, you have to be responsible for it," he said. "Nobody else but you should have access to it."

contacts with the world, law enforcement authorities said. Lanza attempted to destroy his computer's hard drive, the device that stores

and retrievesdata, before setting out on the Dec. 14 killing spree in Newtown,

Conn. Police havedeclined to provide information on the extent of the damage to the drive, but investigators remain hopeful that it can

"At any time I could lose my job, my security," says Duane Taylor, 24, sitting outside the ROOTS Young Adult Shelter in Seattle. "I'd like to be able to support myself. That's my only goal."

Those who can move back home with their parents — the s o-called boomerang set are the lucky ones. But that is not an option for those whose families have been hit hard by the economy, including Taylor, whose motherisbarely scrap-

ing by while working in a laundromat. Without a stable home address, they are an elusive group that mostly couch surfs or sleeps hidden away in cars or other private places, hoping to avoid the lasting stigma of public homelessness during what they hope will be a temporary predicament. These young adults are the new face of a national homeless population, one that poverty experts and case workers say is growing. Yet the problem is mostly invisible. Most cities and states, focusing on homeless families, have not made special efforts to identify young adults, who tend to shy away from ordinary shelters out of fear of being victimized by an older, chronically h omeless population. T h e unemployment rate and the number of young adults who cannot afford college "point to the fact there is a dramatic increase inhomelessness" in that age group, said Barbara Poppe, the executive director of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness. The Obama a d m inistration has begun an initiative with nine communities, most of them big cities, to seek out those between 18 and 24 who are without a consistent home address. New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Boston are among the cities included in the effott. "One ofour firstapproaches is getting a more confident estimate," said Poppe, whose agency is c oordinating the initiative. Those who provide services to the poor in many cities say the economicrecovery has not relieved the problem.

Staff members use a lottery system to decide who won't be able to sleep at the ROOTS Young Adult Shelter one night last month in Seattle. Across the country, tens of thousands of unemployed young people, many with college credits or work histories, are struggling to house themselves in the wake of the recession.

'Years ago, you didn't see what looked like

people of college age sitting and waiting to talk to a crisis worker because they are homeless on the street. Now that's a normal thing." — Andrae Bailey, Community Food and Outreach Center, Florida the executive director of the Community Food and Outreach Center, one of the largest charitable organizations in Florida. "Now that's a normal thing." Los Angeles first attempted a count of young adults living on the street in 2011. It found 3,600, but the city had shelter capacity for only 17 percent of them. "The rest are leftto their own devices," said Michael Arnold, the executive director of the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. "And when you start adding in those who are couch surfing and staying with friends, that number increases exponentially." Boston a l s o att e mpted

counts in 2010 and 2011. The

homeless young adult population seeking shelter grew 3 percentage points to 12 percent of the 6,000 homeless people served over that period. "It's a significant enough jump to know that it's also just the tip of the iceberg," said Jim Greene, director of emergency shelters for the Boston Public Health Commission. In Washington, D.C., Lance Fuller, a 26-year-old with a degree in journalism, spent the end of last month packing up a one-bedroom apartment he can no longer afford after being laid off.

sity of Florida in 2010. "Thankfully, I have a girlfriend who is willing to let me stay with her until I get back on my feet again," said Fuller, who writes a blog, Voices of a Lost Generation. "It's really hard for people in my generation not to feel completely defeated by this economy." Taylor, the fast-food worker in Seattle, said he felt lucky when he could find a coveted space at Roots, a shelter for young adults in a church basement. Suchshelters are rare. For generations, services for the homeless were directed to two groups: dependent

children and older people. There was scant attention focused on what experts now call "transitional age youth" — young adults whose needs are distinct. "I see them coming back day afterday, more defeated, more tired out, wondering, 'When will it be my turn'?'" said Kristine Cunningham, executive director of Roots. "And it's

heartbreaking. This is the age when you want to show the world you have value." They need more than just clean clothes and shelter to move into a secure adulthood, experts say. "They want a way out," said

fundraising). But when his Poppe, whose agency is also $2,000 in savings withered to gathering evidence on what nothing, "I ended up sleeping kinds of programs and outreach work best. "They want an opportunity t o d e velop skills so they are marketable in the long term." "A more individualized approach seems to work," she

added. But two obstacles stand in the way: Young adults, eager for independence, are reluctant to admit that they need help and housing. And shelters designed with young adults in mind — those with career and trauma counseling, and education and training programs — are usually small. Roots holds only 35 people, and a nightly lottery decides who gets a spot, which in-

Asked whether she could go to her parents' home, Wiley said that her father is unemployed and that her mother works in a deli, making about as little as she does. "I don't like relying on other people too much, anyway," she sald. Across town, Roman Tano, 20, woke up recently at YouthCare's James W. Ray Orion Center, another shelter for young adults that offers training programs. In October, its capacity grew to 20 beds from 15. Two months ago, Tano gave up an apartment in his native Dallas after losing his job. He sold his Toyota and sought opportunities in th e Pacific Northwest. He rented a room and set out with his resume (expertise:

He has a new job as a canvasser for an environmental organization. "Coming into it, I was, like, completely out of my element," he said of YouthCare. "But in the time I've been here, it's a pretty diverse group of people. There are a lot of people just trying to work to get out of this." "After I get my paycheck," he said brightly, "I should be on my way."

The Bend City Council voted Wednesday night to spend up to $56,000 to cover the U.S.Forest Service's costs to review the latest city water proposal for a $20 million Bridge Creek water intake facility and pipeline project. The motion easily passed the council, 6-1. But the discussion leading up to the vote provided a taste of how this and other parts of the larger city water project could receivemore scrutiny when two new city councilors take office in January. City Councilor Sally Russell cast the lone "no" vote. Russell, one of three new councilors elected in November, was sworn into office early after former City Councilor Kathie Eckman resigned. Councilors-elect Victor Chudowsky and Doug Knight will be sworn into office in January. Also Wednesday, City Council evaluated City Manager Eric King, and King revealed the city is researching whether it can entice Nike to build its planned multimillion dollar expansion in Bend. The Legislature on Friday passed a measure, signed by Gov. John Kitzhaber, to lock in favorable tax rates specifically for Nikein order to encourage the company's expansion. See Water/B3

program's administrator in Oregon and other Western states in April 2013. For beneficiaries who live more than 40 miles from a military treatment facility, the only option would be TRICARE Standard, the basic fee-for-service plan offered by TRICARE. With only two military treatment facilities — in Astoria and North Bend — thousands of Oregon beneficiaries away from the Coast would lose access to TRICARE Prime. U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, announced Wednesday he had incorporated language from a recent bill co-sponsored with Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, D-Beaverton, into the larger defense funding bill.

Kitzhaber open to assault rifle ban

AROUND THE STATE Student findS gun in theater —Police sayapupil onanendof-the-year field trip Wednesday to see "The Hobbit" at a Tillamook

movie theater found aloaded handgun onthefloor beneath a seat. By Steven DuBois The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Last week's shooting in an Oregon shopping mall and the massacre at a Connecticut elementary school have made it all but certain that gun control will be on the table when the state Legislature convenes Jan. 10. It remains to be seen, however, whether any restrictions will be approved in a state where a majority of h ouseholds have guns, and where Democrats, who are generally more favorable to regulation, hold a slim 16-14 advantage in the Senate. When Gov. John Kitzhaber ordered flags at half-staff for the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, he said he supported President Barack Obama's call for meaningful action to limit future tragedies. Kitzhaber's spokesman, Tim Raphael, said Wednesday that the Democratic governor has asked his staff to bring forward a range of options to improve school security, expand access to mental health and address firearms regulations.

Water Continued from B1 Authorization to spend up to $56,000 more on a U.S. Forest Service review was one of a raft of items on the consent agenda that councilors were scheduled to vote on as a whole. However, Mayor Jeff Eager said he wanted to discuss the issue before voting on it. "I pulled this just because I thought it might help the council to receive some thoughts about the timing of doing this right now," Eager said. City councilors had previously agreed to a Forest Service review of a new city proposal for the water project, and "that work has alreadybegun." King said the Forest Service will conduct a lengthy public process and "pending appeals and other legal challenges, the soonest we could begin work if we stuck with this timeline is late July or August." The timeline is important, because the n e w p i p eline would run u nder Skyliners Road. City officials have said they want to install the pipe before Deschutes County reconstructs the road, to avoid the cost of fixing the road. The

A memorial note graces the marquee at the Clackamas Town Center mall entrance a week after a gunman opened fire in the mall, killing two people and himself. Gov. John Kitzhaber says he may ask the Legislature to pass new gun control measures, including a ban on assault rifles. The twin rampages caused everyone to reflecton these intertwined issues and there's " clearly a n o p p ortunity t o make progress," Raphael said.

Though improving school security and m ental health might find bipartisan support, a potential ban on militarystyle assault weapons would not.

county is r eceiving federal money for the Skyliners Road project, and must begin work on the road by 2014. City Councilor Jim Clinton a sked what happens if t h e council agrees to pay the Forest Service and new city councilors vote in January to stop that process. King said the city could ask the Forest Service to stop work at that point and pay only for the work actually completed by the federal

agency. Russell said that although the Forest Service bill might be small relative to the cost of the water project, "it is a lot of money for the city at this time." Russell said she wanted to postpone until January the decision on whether to pay for the review. Scott Ramsay said it h as bothered him for a while that people in the community are talking about derailing the water project. Ramsay said many opponents of the water project strongly support th e e ffort to expand the Oregon State University-Cascades campus into a four-year university and build a 200-bed hotel in southwest Bend. "I just would l ike people to keep in mind that without

Ceasefire Oregon, a nonprofit group that seeks to reduce gun violence, has pushed for a ban on such weapons and has support from several Democratic legislators, including Sen. Ginny Burdick and Rep. Mitch Greenlick, both of Portland. The governor also appears to be on board. "He really sees no reason for

proper infrastructure, I'm not quite sure how all these projectsthat everybody dreams of would move forward," Ramsay said. Delays in building the water project and other infrastructure also delay economic development, he said. Mayor Pro Tem Jodie Barram saidthe Forest Service review "provides additional time and public process for public input and I think that will be beneficial to councilors who take office in January." I n o t he r b u s iness, t h e council met b e hind c losed doors to review King's job performance. Councilors said afterward they gave King high marks but did not increase his pay, now more than $155,000 or nearly $ 160,000 i n cluding benefits, according to a city comparison with other similarly sized cities in Oregon. The council did not give King a raise due to the city's budget constraints, Eager said. The comparison showed K i ng's salary and benefits are 4.78 percenthigher than the average for the other cities, which include Gresham, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Medford, Corvallis and Springfield. Eager said King has im -

civilians to have assault weapons," Raphael said. Burdick also plans to introduce legislation that would ban ammunition magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. Greenlick, meanwhile, is sponsoring a bill to help schools pay for security enhancements. "I believe in a well-regulated militia," Greenlick said. "But I don't believe every person has to have an assault rifle, or an atomic bomb or atank or whatever." The support of Greenlick and Burdick is not unexpected because both have long backed gun control. There is no indication, however, that pro-gun legislators are ready to switch positions. Shortly after the Connecticut carnage, in which a gunman killed 20 children and seven adults, state Rep. Dennis Richardson, R-Central Point, emailed several school superintendents to say the death toll would have been lower if the gunman had been confronted with a w eapon. Richardson said at least three officials in every school should be trained in theuse offirearms.

Police Chief Terry Wright said it was a small, semi-automatic weapon with a round in the chamber and the safety off. Had the student

By comparison, the planning process for the water project drew criticism for being too opaque.

"I think we have a great opportunity, both in Bend and in Redmond for them, and I think it's the type of company and jobs that we've all been looking for," Knopp said. King said the city is working with the nonprofit Economic Development for Central Oregon "tosee ifthere's an opportunity to submit a proposal." City officials are meeting with EDCO on a range of issues Friday, and King did not know whether other Oregon cities are also trying to attract Nike. King saidthe news reports he has seen indicated the Nike expansion is "most likely to be in the Portland area, but it's definitely worth a shot."

Wright says he and his officers don't think that the weapon was brought by a student or that it had been stashed — leaving the possibility somebody accidentally left it behind. He says officers are working with federal agents to try to

widen existing runs, add 90parking spacesand regradethe beginners hill so that it's less steep. The ski association and environmen-

talists have beenstruggling over expansion plans for years. TheForest Service approved aplan in 2004 with a $3.5 million first phase, including new runs and lifts. Last week, environmentalists filed a new suit against the expansion. The ski area's general manager, Kim Clark,

told the Daily Tidings the group will rely on fundraising and operations revenue, not debt, to finance the work.

Foundation recovering from spat —Thefoundation that raises money for Jefferson Public Radio says it's regrouping and focusing on its plan to remodel a Medford theater as a venue for live

entertainment. TheAshland Daily Tidings reports that the president of the foundation, Steve Nelson, says plans to create a JPR headquarters in Medford are on hold, though not dead. The system of

22 stations heard in Northern California andSouthern Oregon was torn this year by tensions over the foundation's ambitions. Southern Oregon University, where JPR has broadcast studios, fired Executive

Director Ron Kramer. Heeventually resigned a dual role heading the foundation. — From wire reports

is likely to have far more impact than a similar gift to, say, an established institution. The $2 million is, in fact, the largest gift in the 11-year history of the branch campus. The Cuttings, both of whom are native Oregonians, have long known theywould leave money to Oregon State University, their alma mater. Mike Cutting says they also knew they would split their gift between academics and athletics. It wasn't until the last year or year and a half, however, that they began to focus on OSU-Cascades for the academic piece of their plan. Watchingthe branch campus develop and getting to know Becky Johnson, the university's vice presidentwho oversees the branch, the couple decided to put their money here rather than at the larger university. It was a chance, Mike Cutting says, to have a real impact both on the school and on the community it serves. That it will. Moreover, because the Cuttings left decision-making about how the endowment will be spent to the campus vice president, the money

will go where those who know the branch best think it will do the most good. That kind of freedom isn't unheard of in the world of charitable giving, of course, but neither is it the norm. Often gifts come with strings that direct spending to a pet program or some other element that has caught the donor's attention. The Cuttings' decision says plenty about their trust in the ability of those who run the campus to decide what is best for it. OSU-Cascades has had its share of good fortune in recent months. Its campaign to raise an initial $4 million to help expand the 2-year branch into a full-fledged 4-year school is going well and is about '/4 of the way to its goal. State support for the expansion was included in the governor's budget for the coming biennium. And nowaverygenerous couple has promised the school money to spend on its core mission, educating the men and women of Central Oregon. Good fortune continues.

Bend's noiseordinance needs to be changed


esleyLadd andthe Horned Hand were not vindicated by municipal Judge Brian Hemphill when the latter dismissed charges that the music venue had violated Bend's noise ordinance. At the same time, however, the city hardly came out a winner. Hemphill dismissed the charges because, he said, the city's ordinance is unclear. City councilors adopted the ordinance in May with the best of intentions. Noise from indoor and outdoor events can be a problem for neighbors, and the ordinance aims to limit the problem and give neighbors some leverage against blaring music that interrupts sleep. The new ordinance also increased the acceptable levels of noise allowed in some cases. It contains means for venues to get permission from the city to exceed the ordinance. What councilors did not do is include a couple of common-sense rules that would make the noise ordinance both fairer and easier to enforce. The way the ordinance is written, officers can issue a citation that carries a $750 fine, but they're not required to measure the sound. A second citation could be a $1,500

fine, a third is $5,000, and then it's $10,000. It's not fair to put the businesses at risk without requiring evidence that the ordinance is being violated. The ordinance sets out noise limits as measured in decibels, and without measuring it's impossible to decide accurately just how loud something is. Then there's this: Judge Hemphill said the ordinance is unclear about just where noise should be measured, at a venue's front door, perhaps, or on the property of the complainant. Surely the latter is the logical choice and the ordinance should be clear. Not many of us want to be awakened night after night by the noisy band next door. At the same time, deciding just what is "noisy" can be a mighty subjective task, as any teen and parent combination knows all too well. Bend residents, business owners and bands all deserve an ordinance that lays out clearly what's what — and also tells them specifically how that will be determined. This fall, councilors said they wanted toput that task off until after the judge ruled in the Horned Hand case. He ruled. The ordinance was found wanting. It needs repairs.

Don't be swayed by the rhetoric of GOP apologists By Mark Parchman want to comment on several recent letters, all related to current events in the U.S. The First i s " Republic reached point of no return" by Carol Orr. Initially it brought to mind Chicken Little! Please, the republic didn't die on November 6th! And check the facts, the Supreme Court is conservative by 5-4. Case in point: Citizens United. Is Congress to become irrelevant? Over the last two years of partisanship, Congress has already demonstrated it is irrelevant to most Americans. And I too am saddened by the deaths of American soldiers in service to our country, especially those who died in Iraq, after a previous administration ignored intelligence that did not support the Iraq invasion. Really, how do you recon-


cile that? The author is concerned about fiscal responsibility by Obama and Democrats. The Bulletin reported figures in summer 2011 citing that since 1980, 70 percent of our national debt has been accumulated under Republican administrations (63 percent today). Under G.W. Bush the debt rose by $6.1 trillion, averaging $750 billion annually. Fiscal destruction is not new and unique to Obama; it has been growing for decades but is commonly used as criticism by people who don't like Obama. Divine providence'? It would be nice if it could wipe out our debt but given the state of the world, I doubt our debt is a divine priority. Try praying for a functional congress! The second letter, "Media failed to report Benghazi cover-up n by Maralyn Thoma, states the only credible

According to the author and his sources, the GOP has ignored the Latino vote, the African-American vote, the female vote, the youth vote, the gay vote, the non-Christian vote and just about every other progressive or liberal group. Then the GOP lost this election with a platform based primarily on "Obama liberalism bad, GOP conservatism good." Now the plan is for the GOP to embrace the excluded groups and show them they actually care in order to win future elections. At the same time the GOP geniuses are winking to their minions thinking they can dupe the excluded ones and that all the people they excluded will somehow believe the GOP is sincere'? Another brilliant strategy! Don't be duped by this rhetoric. — Mark Parchman lives in Bend.

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his 1987 confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill. Bork, whose failed Supreme Court nomination made history, died Wednesday.

Bork, failed nominee to SupremeCourt, was conservative icon By Al Kamen and Matt Schudel The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Robert Bork, the conservative jurist who fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox during the "Saturday Night Massacre" in 1973 and whose failed nomination to th e Supreme Court in 1987 sparked an enduring political schism over judicial nominations, died early Wednesday at Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, Va., of complications from heart disease. He was 85. The death was confirmed by Bork's daughter-in-law, Diana Culp Bork. For decades, Bork was a major architect of the conservative rebuttal to what he considered liberal judicial activism. He criticized civil rights legislation and rulings in cases involving the "one man, one vote" principle and the constitutional right to privacy. His unrelenting calls for judicial restraint and his opposition to "imperialistic" liberal judges, who he said read their values into the Constitution, made him an iconic figure in conservative legal circles. In his writings and in debates on legal doctrine, the burly, bearded, chain-smoking exMarine was sharply confrontational. But friends and enemies alike found him a man of great charm, compassion and intellect, with a wit so sharp a close friend once called it dangerous. A 1987 Time magazine article reported that Bork had a disarmingpresence,even with his political opponents. When one Justice Department official said that a decision would be made "over my dead body," Bork is said to have quipped, "To some of us, that sounded like the scenic route." Bork was passed over for an opening on the Supreme Court in 1986, when President Ronald Reagan nominated Antonin Scalia, who was confirmed 98 to 0 by the Republican-controlled Senate. After the retirement of Justice Lewis Powell in 1987, liberals feared that Reagan might appoint a judge who would tilt the court toward the right. Judge Bork's nomination went to a Senate controlled by Democrats, with Sen. Joe Biden, D-DeL, as chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The White House tried to position Bork as a mainstream conservative,and conservative columnist George Will declared him"the most intellectually distinguished nominee since Felix Frankfurter" in 1939. But liberals vowed to defeat Bork and waged an all-out campaign, which included television commercials featuring actor Gregory Peck, to portray him as a n u n reconstructed extremist. Among those who testified against Bork was one of his former students at Yale Law School, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, five years before he was elected president. In five days of extensive hearings before the committee, Bork's detractors pointed to his earlier writings, in which he criticized Roe v. Wade — the high court's assertion of a constitutional right to privacy that extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion — affirmative action and aspects of

several civil rights laws. "Robert Bork's A m erica," Sen. Edward K ennedy, DMass., declared on the Senate floor, " is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters,rogue police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists could be censored at the whim of the government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is — and is often the only — protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy." During the nationally televised hearings, Bork, ever the professor and debater, seemed awkward and combative, unable to exhibit the deference demanded by the Senate. He displayed little of the charm and warmth that he was known for in private. Bork's s upporters r a i led that questions over his fitness for the high court crossed the line and became personal attacks — to a degree considered unprecedented in a j u d icial nomination. "They turned him into an absolute gargoyle, into a beast," Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., said. The nomination was defeated 58 to 42. For Bork and his conservative supporters, it was a bitter defeat — and one that would not be forgotten. Afterward, he issued a statement denouncing the process, saying that "the tactics and techniques of national political campaigns have been unleashed on the process of confirming judges. That is not simply disturbing. It is dangerous."

He became a popular public speaker in the following years, often attacking what he called " ultraliberals, r adicals a n d leftists." The bare-knuckle t actics used by D emocrats during Bork's nomination — probing the political views and legal

philosophy of a judicial nominee — were adopted by both parties in a practice that became known as "borking." Since the 1980s, judicial nominees have come under much greater scrutiny a nd have seldom sailed through the Senate without dissent, as they often had in the days before Bork. Robert Heron Bork, the only

LOS ANGELES — Surviving budget cuts, mobs of angry fishermen and death threats, California officials Wednesday completed the largest network of undersea parks in the continental United States — 848 square miles of protected waters that reach from the Oregon line to the Mexican border. The final s egment of marine reserves,along the state's North Coast, becomes official today. Its 137 square miles of protected waters reflect an unusual consensus reached between Native America tribes,conservation groups and fishermen to preserve tribal traditions while protecting marine life from exploitation. All told, the dozen-year effort has set aside 16 percent of state waters as marine reserves, including 9 percent that are off-limits to fishing or gathering of any kind. State officials got to work shortly after the Legislature passed the Marine Life Protection Act in 1999. It directed them to consider a statewide network o f protected waters, modeled after a familiar strategy on land — setting up parks and refuges to conserve wildlife, said Michael Sutton, a California Fish and Game Commissioner. "It's not rocket science," Sutton said. "If you protect w ildlife habitat and y o u don't kill too many, wildlife tends to do well. We've done that on land with the waterfowl population. Now, we've done it in the ocean for fish." Marine r eserves have proliferated in the past decade, particularly in remote areas such as the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, the Phoenix Islands and the Northern Marianas Islands. Yet California's network of reserves is the only one established near a h eavily populated coastline. The state issues 2 million fishing licenses a year. The network got its start from the late Jim Donlon, an avid sports fisherman from Oxnard who lamented the loss of the big fish he used to catch aroundthe ChannelIslands off Santa Barbara. He set in motion a first round of public meetings that resulted in protecting certain rocky reefs, sandy bottoms and other areas around the islands to allow fish populations to recover. Initially, these reserves were seen as "an insurance policy" against inadequate fisheries management that had allowed rockfish and other marine life populations to plunge to record lows, said Steve Gaines, dean of the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the U n iversity of California, Santa

Barbara. The idea: Protected waters would allow some fish to reach full size, and when they swam out ofthe reserve they would benefit local fisher-

men by getting caught. Now, he said, scientists realize that marine reserves, if properlylocated, can become a source of providing larvae to reseed larger regions and benefit entire fisheries. "That's what's exciting about California's network," Gaines said. "It's big enough that it's going to benefit the species that occur all along the coast." The size and scope of the network is exactly what filled auditoriums with red-shirted, shouting fishermen, angry at impending closures of favored fishing spots. The fight has continued inthe courts. So far, none of the lawsuits has prevailed. The American Sportfishing Association, the Virginia-based trade association of the tackle and sport f i shing i ndustry, hired Sacramento lobbyists, public-relations companies and organized anglers by the busload to derail the process. The organization was delighted when G ov. A r n old Schwarzenegger announced in 2004 that budget shortfalls required an indefinite postponement, said the association's vice president, Gordon Robertson. What happened next, he said, outflanked the sports fishing industry. Michael Mantell, a Sacramento lawyer who coordinates philanthropy and conservation, organized a group of foundations to pick up the state's costs, including paying for panels of local leaders to take testimony and make recommendations. So far, the foundations have spent more than $23 million. "The environmental communitypoured far more resources than the recreational fishing did," Robertson said. He vowed to not let this happen in other states. Richard Rogers, a lifelong recreational fisherman and scuba diver,said the science won him over on the issue. After Schwarzenegger appointed him to the Fish and Game Commission, his work to help establishthe reserves was, as he put it, "the single most important thing I've done in life, other than marrying my wife and raising my five kids." Yet it also put him in an awkward position: vilified as an enemy of his fellow fishermen. "We got death threats," Rogers said. He remains bruised that some question his allegiance to the sport. He supported the reserves for one reason, he said. "I want to make sure my grandchildren have some fish to catch."

Still unknown ifdock istsunami debris The Associated Press FORKS, Wash. — Stormy weather i s k e eping c r ews looking for t s unami debris away from a dock that washed ashore on a remote beach on the Washington state coast. A spokesman for the state Marine Debris Task Force, David Workman, says high winds and tides are making it hard to reach the site on the Olympic Peninsula. He says a team hopes to arrive today. Workman says there's no confirmation yet whether the dock is debris from the March 2011 tsunami in Japan. It appears to be similar to a Japanese dock that washed ashore last June at Newport. It was cut up and removed. Federal, state an d t r i b al agenciesare working together to reach the site and evaluate the dock for any potential invasive aquatic species that might be aboard, Workman sard.

The Coast Guard had been looking for the dock since a fishing vessel spotted it adrift in the Pacific Ocean last week. It washed ashore between LaPush and the mouth of the Hoh River. "The Coast Guard was out in challenging conditions looking for a needle in a haystack, and they found it,u Gov. Chris Gregoire said in a statement. A scientist studying tsunami debrisfrom Japan believes the newly arrived dock may be one offour pieces from the fishing port of Misawa, Terry Egan, tsunami marine debris lead for Washington state, said this week. The National Park Service has closed th e w i l derness beach in the area until more is known about any risks associated with the dock. Olympic National Park protects over 70 miles of wild Pacific coast. Much of the coastline, including the dock's loca-

tion, was designated by Congress as wilderness in 1988. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Marine Debris Program has been leading efforts to collect data, assess debris and reduce possible impacts to c oastal communities a n d na t u r al resources. The Japanese government estimated that the March 11, 2011, tsunami swept about 5 million tons of debris into the Pacific. Most of that sank immediately, while 1.5 million tons were dispersed across the North Pacific. NOAA estimates the bulk of what is coming either has arrived or will in the next year or so. NOAA ha s r eceived about 1,400 debris reports in the past year, including bottles and buoys. Of those reports, 17 have been confirmed,including a 20-foot boat, pieces of whichwere recovered earlier this month in Hawaii.

Hearing next step for Oregon/NGAA Yahoo Sports reported Wednesdaythatthe

University of Oregon is likely headed toward a


hearing with the NCAA

committee on infrac-

staff's use of a scouting service. Yahoo cited two un-

identified sources in its report. The NCAA inves-

tigated Oregon after questions arose over a 2010 payment of

$25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based

recruiting service. Lyles had a relation-

The Bulletin

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — After two seasons

as Notre Damecoach, Brian Kelly decided

he wasn't spending enough time doing the best part of his job:

coaching players. Kelly changed that in 2012, and he shuffled his staff. Then, with

Kelly more in tune to his team and the assistants in sync with the head coach, Notre Dame went from unranked to top-ranked. For leading the Fighting lrish to the BCS championship for the first time, Kelly was voted Associated Press

college football coach of the year. "When you're talking about the coach of the

year, there's so many things that go into it," Kelly said. "I know it's an individual award and

itgoes toone guy, but the feelings that I get from it is you're building the right staff, that you've got the right

players and to me that is a validation of the

program. That you put together the right busi-

ness plan." Kelly received 25 votes from the AP college football poll panel. Penn State's Bill O'Brien was second with 14 votes. Stanford's David Shaw

(four), Texas A8M's Kevin Sumlin (three), Kansas State's Bill

Snyder (two) and Alabama's Nick Saban

(one) also received votes. Kelly is the first

Notre Dame coach to win the AP award, which started in1998. — The Associated Press

Ben Ferguson, left, and brother Gabe Ferguson both learned to snowboard from a young age at Mt. Bachelor.

Gabe Ferguson grew up snowboarding at Mt. Bachelor ski area, following his older brother Ben around the mountain. "That's basically how it still works," says Gabe, 13. Now Gabe has followed Ben, 17, all the way onto the U.S. Snowboarding Rookie Halfpipe Team. The brothers from Bend make up a quarter of the eight-member rookie team, a sort of feeder squad for the U.S. Pro Halfpipe Team. While Gabe has made a name for himself in the halfpipe, he admits he got noticed because he is Ben's little brother.

By Anne M. Peterson PORTLAND — While Portland rookie Damian Lillard has gabbed much of the attention, Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum has impressed the stat watchers. Batum had the NBA's first 5x5 since 2006 on Sunday in a 95-94 Portland victory over New Orleans. A 5x5 is a game in which a player has at least five points, five rebounds, five assists, five steals and five blocked shots in a single game. Noone in the league had reached that benchmark since 2006. The 6-foot-8 French forward's final line looked like this: 11 points, five rebounds, a career-best 10 assists, five steals, and a career-high five blocked shots. After the game, he posted to Twitter from Portland's famous Voodoo Doughnut shop: "Yes I deserve it!" What makes the feat even more impressive is that Batum has been dealing with a sore back that has hampered him for several games. He sat out Portland's 92-74 victory over Toronto on Dec. 10, and his back is still bothering him. "A little bit," he said. "I can't really jump and move like I want to." Batum's 5x5 game was the first since Andrei Kirilenko had one with Utah on Jan. 3, 2006. The NBA did not tally steals or blocks before 1972, but since then the 5x5 mark has been reached 15 times.

cially because I'm always with Ben and he's on the team," Gabe says. Gabe, the youngest member of the rookie team by nearly two years, found out this past spring that he was selected for the squad. Ben is in his second year on the team, coming off a stellar 2011-12 season during which he won the halfpipe event and finished second in slopestyle at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Austria. "It's good to have him around," Ben says of Gabe. "Last year I definitely wasn't riding with him as much, and I've got a good traveling buddy now, so it's good, for sure." Ben started snowboarding at Bachelor when he was 6. But Gabe started when he was just 4. "He's really talented," Ben says of his kid brother. "It's always kind of been easy for him. He's had natural talent forever." The Fergusons have spentthe past three weeks training with the team in the halfpipe at Copper Mountain, Colo. See Brothers/C3

Winthrop University men's basketball coach Pat Kelsey was in the national spotlight Tuesday night and used it to deliver an impassioned speech about last Friday's fatal shootings of 26 people in a Connecticut elementary school. "Parents, teachers, rabbis, priests, coaches ... everybody needs to step up," said Kelsey, firstyear coach of the Eagles. "This has to be a time for

change." Kelsey's team played Tuesday night at fourthranked Oh>o State, and that meant a large number of reporters was on hand for interviews following Winthrop's 65-55 loss in Columbus. "I know this microphone's powerful right now, because we're playing the fourth-best team in the country," Kelsey said, according to transcripts of his remarks from reporters on hand. "I'm not going to have a microphone like this the

COLLEGE BASKETBALL restofthe year — maybe the rest of my life." So Kelsey, who played

high school and college basketball in Cincinnati, used his moments of national attention to address the killing of 20 young children in Sandy Hook, Conn. By Wednesday morning, those remarks were gaining national attention. His comments were noted by nearly all the major national TV networks and on social media. Kelsey's remarks came on the same night when Syracuse University coach Jtm Boehetm, who has 900 careervictories,made a strong speechin favor of strengthening gun control. Kelsey did not necessarily argue for gun control, saying, "I'm not smart enough to know what needs to be done." But he said some type of change is needed. SeeCoach /C3

Penn State voted AP sports story of year again

2012 SportsStory of theYearVoting Total points based on10

By Rachel Cohen The Associated Press

NEW YORK — The Penn State child sex abusescandal was selected as the sportsstory ofthe year by U.S. editors and news directors in an annual vote conducted by The Associated Press. The news broke in November 2011, with a g r and jury r eport outlining charges against Jerry SaldusSy, and the outrage that followed led to the firing of Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno. But the aftershocks were felt long into 2012: Sandusky was convicted in June of assaulting 10 boys, and the NCAA handed down brutal sanctions in July. In both y ears, the scandal was picked as the top sports story, the first time since the AP began conducting its annual vote in 1990 that the same story was selected twice in a row. The results of this year's tally were announced Wednesday. There were 157 ballots submitted

from U.S. news organizations. Here are 2012's top 10 stories: 1. Penn State: Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator whose crimes led to such devastation for his victims and for his former employer, was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts. In October, the 68-year-oldwas sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison. 2. Lance Armstrong: In February, federal prosecutors closed an investigation into whether the star cyclist doped. That turned out to be only a temporary reprieve for a once-revered figure. In June, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency accused him of using performance-enhancing drugs, and in August, when he dropped his fight against the charges, USADA ordered his record seven Tour titles wiped out. 3. NFL bounties: This much is clear: Saints coach Sean Payton was suspended for the entire season and New Orleans started 0-4 to quickly fall out

of playoff contention. Much else about the bounty scandal remains in dispute. 4. Football concussions: The deaths of NFL greats Alex Karras — who sufferedfrom dementia — and Junior Seau — who committed suicide — were grim remindersof the angst over head injuries in the sport and their possible consequences. 5. London Olympics: Michael Phelps retired from swimming after setting an Olympic record with his 22nd medal at a Summer Games bursting with memorable performances. 6. College football playoffs: Instead of complaining about the BCS, soon we can moan about the selection committee. After years of carping, fans finally got a playoff system, which will debut after the 2014 season.

7. Replacement officials: Fans and pundits predicted a blown call would decide a critical game when the NFL started the season with replacement

officials. Sure enough, in Week 3 a missed offensive pass i nterference penalty and a questionable touchdown catch handed the Seattle Seahawks a win over the Green Bay Packers. Two days later, the league resolved its labor dispute with the regular refs. 6. Super Giants: A team that had been 7-7came from behind to defeat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, 21-17. 9. Summitt retires: Pat Summitt, the winningest coach in NCAA basketball history,retired from the Tennessee bench in April at age 59, less than eight months after revealing she had earlyonset dementia.

10. Manning's resurgence: Peyton Manning was released from the Indianapolis Colts in March. John Elway and the Broncos gambled that he still had some championship play left in that right arm, and so far it's looking like a brilliant move.

Coach Continued from C1 After b r i efl y d i s cussing the game, in which the Eagles gave the heavily favored Buckeyes a serious challenge, Kelsey changed the topic. "The last thing I want to say is, I'm really, really lucky, because I'mgonnaget on an eighthour bus ride, and I'm gonna arrive in R ock H i ll , South Carolina, and I'm gonna walk into my house, and I'm gonna walk upstairs, and I'm gonna walk into two pink rooms, with a 5-year-old and a 4-year-old laying in that pink room, with a bunch of teddy bears laying in that room," Kelsey began. "And I'm gonna givethem

the biggest hug and the biggest kiss I've ever given them. "And there's 20 families in Newtown, Connecticut, that are walking into a pink room with a bunch of teddy bears with nobody laying in those beds. And it's tragic." Kelsey paused, then picked up the intensity. "I'm not smart enough to know what needs to be done," he said. "I know this country has issues. Is it a gun issue? Is it a mental illness issue? Or is it a society that has lost the fact, the understanding, that decent human values are important'?" he asked. Kelsey then told reporters that he didn't vote for President Obama in the recent election but Obama "is my leader." The Winthrop coach said it is t i m e f o r O b ama a nd House Speaker John Boehner — who, Kelsey mentioned, is a fellow Cincinnati native — "to step up." And he said he will work for change himself.

"I'm going to be an agent

of change with the 13 young men I get to coach every day, and the two little girls that I get to raise," Kelsey said. "But hopefully things start changing, because it's really, really disappointing. "I'm proud to grow up American. I'm proud to say I'm part of thegreatest country ever.... But we gotta change." W hen Kelsey's team r e turned to R ock H i l l , S .C., about 6 a.m. Wednesday, he w as greeted by reporters from WSOC-TV. Th e W i n t h rop coach apparently was aware that his remarks had gained national attention. "It was just a d ad , concerned about the future," he told WSOC. "I just spoke from my heart." Syracuse's Boeheim focused on gun control as the issue. "If we cannot get the people who represent us to do something about firearms, we are a sad, sad society," he said. "If one person in this world — the NRA (National Rifle A ssociation) president, anybody — can tellme why we need assault weapons with 30 shots ... this is our fault if we don't go out there and do something about this."

Brothers Continued from C1 Halfpipe snowboarders are judged on the difficulty, execution and amplitude of the aerial tricks they perform as they soar in and out of the U-

shaped pipe. Ben is qualified for the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix at Copper Mountain, Jan. 9-11. The first Grand Prix event, originally scheduled for this Friday and Saturday in Park City, Utah, was postponed until Feb. 1-2 due to lack of snow. Just 10 U.S. riders receive i nvitations t o G r a n d P r i x events, which include some of the country's best halfpipe boarders, such as two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White. Gabe is not yet old enough to compete in the Grand Prix events, so this season he will take part in th e Revolution Tour, a halfpipe and slopestyle circuit for r i ders who are not invited to the Grand Prix. Gabe, who t a kes o n line middle schoolcourses so he can be free to snowboard, says he developed his riding style by following the model of his big brother.

"He goes big and he's got

good tricks," Gabe says of Ben. Ben says he often gives Gabe tips and advice, but Gabe can be a bit stubborn, according to their mother, Jennifer Ferguson, who is currently in Colorado with her sons.

"He (Gabe) doesn't like to

The Associated Press EL PASO, Texas — Two days after missing a potential game-winning 3-pointer, UTEP's Konner Tucker got a second chance in a big home

game against an elite opponent Wednesday night. This time Tucker drilled it.

which gave UTEP (4-5) an 86-81 lead in the fourth tripleovertime game in school history. "I wish I had hit the last one. Keep shooting and good things happen. It was a great pass from Jacques(Streeter) and I was lucky to knock it down. After making one of 11 3point shots in regulation and the first two overtimes, UTEP was two for two in the third extra period, including the second career3-pointer from John Bohannon, who fouled out with 21 points. His 3 with 2:18 remaining put UTEP's lead at 84-80. " Playing this q uality o f team, the idea is to get better," said Miners coach Tim Floyd. "You get better or you wilt and you learn how to lose.

Batum also became the first player with at least 10 assists, five steals and five blocks in a single game since Jamaal Tinsley on Nov. 16, 2001. It was Batum's first d ouble-double with points and assists. "It was big for me," he said. "I've never had 10 (assists) in the NBA yet." The weight of Batum's accomplishment did not really hit until later, because the finish against the Hornets was so frantic. Lillard hit the gamew inning t h ree-pointer w i t h 03 seconds left.

figures. "There's going t o b e nights where one has the hot hand and there's going to be other nights the other does," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. Both top scorers were hot against the Hawks. Durant made six of nine shots in the final period, including three 3-pointers, and the Hawks couldn't find a way to slow the 6-foot-9 forward. "We double-teamed him, we zoned him," said Hawks coach Larry D r ew. "He still made shots. You can't stop him when he's hot like that." Durant said Westbrook's strong first h al f h e lped open more opportunities for him after the break. "He was a g g ressive and they were giving him jump shots," Durant said. "We just played off of that. He was very good and it o pened up for me in t h e second half." Durant acknowledged he launched some "questionable" shots. "But my teammates wanted me to do it," he said. Jeff Teague led Atlanta with 19 points, Josh Smith had 17 points and 12 rebounds, and A l H o r ford and Lou Williams scored 13 apiece.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell Wednesday for the first time this week on worries that budget talks in Washington are faltering. Politicians have less than two weeks to reach a compromise to avert a host of painful tax increases and cuts in government spending that are scheduled to take effect automatically in 2013. Investors were disappointed after the White House threatened to veto House Speaker John Boehner's backup plan, which would raise income tax rates on those who make more than $1 million annually. A weaker-than-expected report on housing also hurt stocks. L.S. builders broke ground on fewer homes in November.

The Treasury Department said Wednesday that it planned to sell off its entire 32 percent stake in General Motors within 15 months, eliminating another reminder of the bailouts precipitated by the financialcrash of2008. The news comes a week after the Obama administration completely sold off its entire

holdings in the American International Group, one of the m ost controversial rescues of the market crisis. According to a plan outlined Wednesday, the Treasury Department will sell a little less than half of its stake, or 200 million shares, back to GM

Tuesday. The Treasury Department will then sell its remaining 300.1 million shares within the next year to 15 months, depending on market conditions. Those sales could be through stockofferings or other means. "This announcement is an important step in bringing closure to the successful auto industry rescue, it further removesthe perception of

Members of H20 Photo, the winning team of the Bend Startup Weekend, are experiencing the challenges of getting a startup company off the ground. Troy Smith, who repairs leather and vinyl upholstery at Color Glo International in Bend, took his idea of an electronically controlled underwater camera housing to the Startup Weekend last month. "I had this idea, but I didn't know what to do with it on my own and Ididn'tknow if it was a good idea or not," Smith said. What's new about Smith's housing design, said Steve Minar, another member of the H20 Photo team, is its reliance on a single USB cord penetrating the housing to control functions such as zoom, focus, shutter and flash. The design eliminates the needfornumerous holes in a housing, reducing the potential for leakage. And the design is universal for any type of camera, he said. Currently, each type of camera requires a different housing. But while the idea landed them the grand prize, winning the event was just the beginning for H20 Photo. "It's not a fairy-tale story where we're all going to get rich," Smith said. "We're still working on really identifying if there is a good opportunity, and where in the market that

new rules toprotect children By Natasha Singer New York Times News Service



In a move intended to give parentsgreater control over data collected about their children online, federal regulators on Wednesday broadened long-standing privacy safeguards covering children's apps and websites. Members ofthe Federal Trade Commission said they had updated the provisions to keep pace with the growing use of mobile phones and tablets among children. The regulations also reflect innovations like voice-recognition

H20 Photo's Steve Minar, left, and Troy Smith, right, hope to create electronically controlled camera housings. Walt Bolton, center, who co-owns Central Oregon Diving in Bend, has helped educate the duo about the current underwater camera housing market.

What's theBendStaitupWeekend? Held in November, the Bend Startup Weekend gave

entrepreneurs 54 hours to pitch an ideaand launch astartup company. TheBendevent was part of a worldwide program that's an affiliate of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, a

Kansas City, Mo., nonprofit dedicated to entrepreneurship. Following the Startup Weekend, a three-week program called Next was held in Bend to help give Startup Weekend teams additional coaching. A four-week Next program launched in more than 25 cities Nov. 28, according to the Startup Weekend website. For more information about Bend Startup Weekend, visit http:// For more information about Startup Weekend's Next program, visit


After the Startup Weekend, Smith, Minar and their two other partners attended Startup Weekend Next, a three-week business facilitation program, to see if the idea had potential to transform into a company. "The goal was to determine ifthere really is a m arket for these, how big that market is

FTC sets

and what the value is that we have to offer," Smith said, referring to the Next program. Although the other two members of the startup team are nolonger involved, Minar said he's still pursuing the project with Smith, trying to validate the business concept before putting a lot of money

into moving forward. "We still think we have a really good idea, but we've learned the market is smaller than we hoped and there are two existing companies that have used a similar approach and didn't have very good results in the market," Minar said.

Minar said controlling the camera electronically via a single cable would make the housing easier and cheaper to manufacture. Currently, housings cost from $1,500 to more than $5,000, he said. Reducing the cost, he said, would allow more people to buy them, expanding the market and taking existing market sharefrom other housing companies. While Smith and Minar have their reservations, Walt Bolton, a co-owner of Central Oregon Diving who takes underwater video and sells housings, thinks there's a need for the duo's device. "If they can do what they're intending to do with their device, it's very clever," Bolton said. "I think they can do it and be very, very competitive." — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

systems and behavior-based online advertising — that is, ads tailored to an Internet user's habits. Regulators had not significantly changed the original rule, based on the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, or COPPA, since its inception. That rule required operators of websites directed at children to notify parents and obtain their permission before collecting or sharing personal information — like first and last names, phone numbers, home addresses or email addresses — from children under 13. Legislators who enacted that law said the intent was to give parents control over entities seeking to collect information about their children so that the parents could, among other things, prevent unwanted contact by strangers. The new rule, unveiled at a news conference in Washington, significantly expands the types of companies required to obtain parental permission before knowingly collecting personal details from children, as well as the types of information that will require parental consent to collect.

Music player upsthe ante in soundquality By Ron Harris The Associated Press

ATLANTA — It's hard to make headlines with aportable music player these days. It's old hat to carry around thousands of songs in your pocket, whether on an iPod or a smartphone. But there'sbeen a price for portability. You are listening to your favorite music delivered only after a host of technology has diminished the resolution of the audio, by necessity, so that it can exist in a small digital file and make its way to your ears. It sounds fine, but the makers of a new portable music player are betting there are still some people out there

who want even better quality. Astell 8t Kern's new portable music player, the AK100, delivers. About half the size of a pack of cigarettes, the AK100 boasts the ability to play music files with more than six times the information on your standard CD, and several times beyond that of a popular but lowly MP3 file. At $699, it's also nearly five times the price of an iPod Nano. The AK100's magic rests primarily in its Wolfsen 24-bit DAC, or digitalto-analog-convertor, which is a small piece of technology that converts the binary code of a digital music file into an analog signal your ears can hear.

With the AK100, you won't be able to view photos or video or make phone calls, as the iPod Touch offers. The AK100 does one thing — play music — and does it really well. Is the difference worth it? For some, maybe. Others won't care about that difference, can't hear it, or would decide it's not worth the additional cost it even if they can hear it. But for those who truly appreciate a good recording, and would like to hear something as close to the original as possible, the Astell & Kern player is a refreshing device they'll likely embrace.

John BazemoreiThe Associated Press

The Astell & Kern AK100, which retails for $699, is capable of playing 24-bit, audiophilequality digital music files.

• Women seeknutritional answers to treat hot flashes, menopause By Anne Aurands The Bulletin

ike many women herage,Mary Huntsman, 52,had been dealing with night sweats, a common symptom of menopause. Several times a night, her body temperature would spike and she would wake to kick off the covers. Then she'd cool off and pull them back on. She struggled to get a good night's sleep. She tried hormone therapy for about a year, which included estrogen and progesterone. That helped a little. But in October, she decided to stop the prescription hormones and focus instead on nutrition, which she says has helpedrelieve her symptoms. She followed a Mediterranean-type diet, a widely lauded eating pattern that emphasizes unprocessed, whole, plant-based foods. She started takingprobiotics and prebiotics to boost her digestive health. She weaned off wheat, which seemed to disagree with her. She took herbal and nutritional supplements to support her adrenal gland, which produces hormones. Within a couple of months, she found that she didn't need to keep the bedroom so cool

Menopause, when a woman's periods stop, typically happens in one's 40s or 50s. The time around menopause — when the egg supply declines — is often marked by annoying symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats, vasomotor symptoms believed to be caused by fluctuating and decreasing levels of the female hormone estrogen. These symptoms can go on for several years for some women.

isoflavones inhibit a number of cell-signaling pathways linked to cancer growth, according to the AICR. A 2011 study out of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland, Calif., followed more than 3,000 breast cancer survivors for a median of 7.3 years. Researchers found that as isoflavone intake increased, the risk of death decreased. They said there is adequate evidence that "clinicians no longer need to

Menopause Continued from D1 Hormonetherapy, acommon treatment for such symptoms, involves the use of several different hormones — including

estrogen, progesterone oraprogestin — in varying combinations, forms and doses. While hormone replacementtherapy has greatly relieved symptoms for many women, research has found that for some women it brings serious risks, including an increased chance of heart disease, stroke, blood clots and breast cancer. Leading medical organizations, such as the American Congress o f Ob s tetricians and Gynecologists, the North American Menopause Society, and the Endocrine Society, have all said if a woman chooses hormone replacement therapy t o m a n age symptoms, she should use the least amount for the shortest period of time possible. Huntsman is a physician and obstetrician who specializes in women's care and has her own private practice in Bend. Recently, she has been studying "functional medicine," which looks forroot causes of common health concerns. Since Huntsman's symptoms were pretty mild, she wanted to see ifshe could manage them through nutritional and lifestyle interventions. She could.

Soy In light of c oncerns surrounding hormone therapy, scientists have i n vestigated food and supplements that

may helpmanage menopause symptoms. The most studied botanicals for menopause-related conditions are isoflavones, a subset of phytoestrogens, which are compounds with estrogenlike biologic activity and a chemical structure similar to that of a form of estrogen found in the

body. Soy is t h e m o s t w i dely used i s o flavone-containing food, so soy foods have been researched and debated in the treatment of menopause — producing confusing and conflicting results. Ellen Gold, a professor and chairwoman of th e D epartment of Public Health Sciences at University of California, Davis, studies lifestyle and ovarian function i n m i d life women and has been involved with several large studies on the subject. She said part of the reason conclusions concerning soy seem inconsistent is because methodologies among studies vary w idely. Also, many studies are quite small. Some look at foods, others at supplements. And, various studies have examined differentsubsets, or types, of estrogen. Most research focuses on postmenopausal women, and w hether eating so y c o u l d help reduce their symptoms. The majority of the literature shows that soy works slightly better than placebos in women who already have symptoms, Gold said. A recent study published in Menopause, The journal of the North American Menopause Association, reviewed 19 previous studies that encompassed more than 1,200 women and found that two d aily servings of soy — a t least 54 milligrams of soy isoflavones — for six weeks to a year can reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes by up to 26 percent, compared to a placebo. The study found that isoflavone supplements with higher levels (at least 19milligrams) of genistein, one of the two main types of i s oflavones, were more than twice as effective at reducing hotflash frequency than supplements with lower amounts of genistein. Since t he genistein compound i s

"We don't ever want to have to do that," Schueler said. The center largely serves those who are admitted to the hospital — inpatient — rather than those who undergo dialysis several times a week and then go home. It also performs more specialized treatments, said Mary P aulson, a n urse wh o h a s worked in dialysis for several decades. When Paulson first began at St. Charles, she said, inpatient dialysis took place in a converted closet with a cart. Then it moved to its own room. The new center has six dialysis chairs available, all heated, instead of the three in the previous room. A makeshift fourth was sometimes added when necessary, shoved in front of the nursing station, Paulson said. One of the chairs is in a separate room, in case a patient with an infectious condition needs to remain isolated from the others. The comfort of the patients is of p articular importance in dialysis, Paulson said, because they must sit in the chair for three to four hours,on

The second half of it, now under way, is turning the smaller, vacated space into another intensive care unit room. Kirk Schueler, chief administrative officer for St. Charles Health System, said adding one more ICU room — bringing the Bend total to 18 — will mean less of a chance that all the beds are full. That presently happens on occasion, and then patients must be transported away from their families and over the mountains to facilities in Portland or

"They're here for us," she said. Don't worry about wasting time; it's better to spend a few minutes getting yourself taken care of than to stumble through the last five miles in discomfort.

T his goes back t o y o u r training, Wilson said. "I don't usually have this fear because I know what I need to eat the night before and the morning of because I've been practicing for weeks. I know I can do gel and fluids consistently until around mile 22, and then I need real food." What's her fuel of choice? A handful or two of Teddy Grahams.

Needing the bathroom

Falling short of your goal

Bathroom issues happen, Wilson acknowledges. Even if you learn during training what you can and can't eat, on race day, "nerves can take over." What to do? "Stop at the Porta-John'? Waste the time standing in line? Risk there not being toilet paper? Or do you wait it out?" she asked.

Wilson didn't hit her time goal in Philadelphia, but she had a great time, she says. "Go into this with the right mind-set," she said. "Running a marathon isn't easy, or everyone would do it. We forget that, because we spend a lot of time training and are around runners all the time, some of whom are much faster than we are. Well there's always someone faster, right? It's just another day, and it's a great day because you can run a marathon! "If you hit your goal all the time, what would you reach for'?"

The longer you do long races, the better you know your body, she s aid. "It's funny how you can talk yourself out of having to use the bathroom. The good news is that supported events usually have more Porta-Johns than you can count, so try another mile and see how you feel. Then, if you gotta go, it really won't burn that much time."

"Train N EW Y OR K wreck." That's what I hear, again and

again, when I ask people why they watch "Jersey Shore." "It's such a train w reck!" they chortle. I nod blankly and change the subject. Am I m i ssing the essential train-wreckiness that has made "Jersey Shore" such an audience-pleasing, buzz-generating hit'? Or is my immunity to its charms explained simply by the fact that if I wanted to watch a train wreck, I'd choose a swifter railroad'? But this will al l b e moot soon. After three years and six seasons of boozy, rowdy wrecktitude, "Jersey Shore" concludes its MTV run tonight at 10. Can it really be just three years since Snooki and memes like "smoosh" and " G.T.L." drilled their way into our consciousness? Since a group of millenial party animals challenged Speaker of the House John Boehner as the nation's

caught on big, attracting nearly 9 million viewers at its peak. At the same time, it undid decades of headway by Bruce Springsteen in ennobling his native state, forever cementing its status as a punch line. (Filming of the series wrapped before Hurricane Sandy, with its many victims and heroes, reminded everyone that New Jersey isn't defined by a handful ofcamera-crazy beachside interlopers.) The show didn't do a lot to burnish the image of ItalianAmericans, either, as the cast let it all hang out with timeworn s t ereotypes. ( D eena Nicole Cortese: "It's like fingerprints: How are you going to tell a guidette apart without her extensions?") And it made the cast members - with skills b arely advanced beyond strutting, scrapping, carousing and mangling the King's English — into stars. Thus were these highwattage dim bulbs instantly deprived of their last shreds of authenticity as nobodies with nothing to lose, their status at the outset of the series. Now th e h o usemates of "Jersey Shore" can look back proudly at their accomplishments. They have all d one their part to lower the bar, even as they stumbled over it. And they have enjoyed a dream job. They got paid to party. And the bigger the spectacle they made of themselves, the greater their appeal and,

presumably, the fatter their paychecks. (Paul "D J Pauly D" DelVecchio: "One minute you got three girls in the Jacuzzi, the next minute somebody's in

jail.") But the time has come to say goodbye. Or not. The Season Two premiere of "Snooki 8c JWoww" (starring "JerseyShore" alumnae Nicole Elizabeth "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley) is just around the corner. And in th e i ndeterminate future, MTV plans to launch "The Show with Vinny," which MTV calls a hybrid talk/reality show that "will shatter the typical talk-show format by taking the biggest celebrities out of the studio and into Vinny Guadagnino's family home in Staten Island, N.Y." That's all ahead. But looking back as "Jersey Shore" exits, the question persists: Why'? Maybe people watched "Jersey Shore" because it was a welcome, wacky l i b eration. A break from the confines of parents, kids, partner, boss. Within their world, the "Jersey Shore" housemates have been privilegedto serve as your surrogate id, treating you to visions of irresponsibility while sparing you f rom it s c osts — whether embarrassment, a hangover or an STD. Call "Jersey Shore" a train w reck, then, albeit with n o casualties. But does that beat a show that really takes you somewhere'?

Proponents of breast feeding believe that the suckling reflex is enhanced when the child isn't meeting their nutritional needs. Regardless of the reason, a child with an enhanced suckling reflex will commonly get satisfaction from a digit, most commonly the thumb.

Sucking on the thumbcan and will cause serious developmental growth problems of the face. The onset of these problems begin as soon as the thumb sucking starts but may not be revealed for years, although the damage is done. Prevention of the habit as soon as it starts is critical to avoiding the growth problems later. The use of a pacifier can be an option in preventing thumb sucking. It must be noted that you cannot use just any pacifier. An orthopedic pacifier such as "NUK" style is

preferred. Some pacifiers will have the same effect as a thumb. The results of thumb sucking can cause serious problems and have impacts that last far beyond the thumb sucking years. Thumb sucking will almost always have a negative impact on one's airway and can even be linked to sleep apnea resulting in life threatening conditions later in life. I would recommend prevention of thumb sucking with the use of an approved pacifier.

distance and reading vision and no longer needs her reading glasses.Is this possible? ANswER: Contact lenses have continued to evolve over the past few years. We now have a wider range of lens designs that allow us to tailor the fitting process to meet each individual's specific visual needs.

o p F A Ao

Bifocal and monovision contact lenses allow for a wide range of focus with minimal need for reading glasses. Bifocal lenses are superior for the office setting, providing good intermediate and reading distances while maintaining good useable distance vision. Monovision, where we set one eye for distance and one eye for near, provides a strong distance vision with a nice "sweet-spot" for reading. If you have never wom contacts before, now is a good time to consider. Changes to lens material offer improved comfort and potential longer wearing time then older generation lenses.See your eye care professional to see which lens is right for you.

ANswcR: Thanks for the great question. Thumb sucking is a developmentally harmful habit that is increasing in its prevalence. To understand why a child desires to suck his thumb requires some background in the developmental needs as well as the environmental impact.

ANSWER: Weight m anagement can be a tricky business, with problems due to many reasons. First would be to ensure that there is not any chronic disease or medical reasons such as insulin resistance, thyroid, adrenal or sex hormone imbalance. Next would be a liver detox or metabolic cleanse. We tend to store our toxins in fat tissue and it is difficult to lose the fat until we lose the toxins. Then there are a few myths we need to bust. Metabolism is set and can be reset by a variety of mechanisms. If we "fast" by not eating, our metabolism slows deliberately to compensate for the lack of fuel. To lose weight we need to eat, especially a breakfast high in protein, low in sugars. Coffee is our enemy here also by stimulating insulin and cortisol. "The Weight Loss Cure" book re-popularized Dr. Simeon's HCG protocol which we utilize in our clinic along with other medically supervised weight management programs. We provide all hormone testing, programs and tools to get you started looking and feeling better.

3. Play with walking on your toes, heels, insides and outsides of your

if I should discourage it or shouldI try to replace his thumb with a pacifier?

The sucking reflex is initiated just prior to birth and serves as a mechanism to provide nutrition to the baby.

Answea: Have you ever heard the expression "use it or lose it"? Well, challenging one's balance falls into this category. As we age, get busy with work and family, and often become more sedentary, we stop challenging our body's sophisticated ability to maintain balance on a variety of surfaces. For the following exercises, use safety precautions like using a chair, counter or wall to hold onto if necessary:

2. Practice balancing on one foot while brushing your teeth or shaving.

QUEsTIQN: My child suckshis thumb. I'm not sure


QUESTION:.I am trying to lose weight, hardly eating anything, and exercising like crazy. Why can't I lose weight?

1. When putting on/off your socks, balance on the other foot instead of sitting down.

QUEsTIQN: Why a colonoscopy? ANswER: Colon cancer is the second leading causeofcancer death in both men and women in the United States today. A colonoscopy is the primary preventative tool used by doctors to detect colon cancer, and is highly recommended because this is one cancer that Jana VcnAmburg, screening not only detects but helps prevent colon cancer. Colon cancer is a fast growing cancer and early detection inhibits this deadly cancer from becoming untreatable. A lighted camera called a colonoscope, is used to visually examine the patient's colon and rectum. During a colonoscopy, removal of cancerous and non-cancerous polyps, diagnosis of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, biopsies of tissue and repair of abnormalities such as gastrointestinal bleeding are also performed. If you are 50 or older, contact your primary care physician and ask to be referred to our office. The message is clear: COLONOSCOPIES SAVE LIVES

often lead to symptoms such as bloating, pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding or pain with sex. Fibroids are very sensitive to estrogen, although progesterone

JocelynCooper, ND

may also play a role in their development. Naturopathic t r e atment goals for a patient with fibroids include supporting the liver to promote hormone detoxification

and targeted supplement and botanical medicine to inhibit further fibroid growth. These goals are achieved by encouraging a diet that is low in saturated fat, sugar and processed foods. Fiber and cruciferous vegetables are a staple part of the treatment plan in order to encourage adequate estrogen metabolism. There are also many functional foods and herbs that have phytoestrogenic activity. This means that they bind to estrogen receptors and block the body's own powerful estrogen from having an effect on the fibroid. Herbs like Chaste tree (Vitex agnus castus), Saw palmetto (serenoa repens) and Burdock root (Arctium lappa) along with foods like soy and flaxseed all may benefit a woman with uterine fibroids. Often, a comprehensive naturopathic treatment is able to decrease symptoms of uterine fibroids and patients are able to avoid common surgeries like a hysterectomy.

pulling, or itching, deep in the legs. Symptoms usually get worse as the day moves on, and

they are worst at night. Often, their legs move on their own during sleep; some people have to get up during the night and walk around to get the pain to go away. Recent studies show that for many people, leaky veins are a significant contributing factor. Studies show that in some cases treating these veins will improve or totally relieve symptoms of RLS. Unfortunately, the many causes of RLS are not well understood, and it is therefore often treated with powerful medications aimed at symptom relief, rather than eliminating the cause. Current medical recommendations are that BEFORE starting medications for RLS, sufferers should have their veins checked by a specialist and possibly an ultrasound evaluation for leaky vein valves. If leaking veins are identified, treating these veins may prevent the need for starting powerful medications. If you have symptoms of RLS, feel free to call Inovia Vein Specialty Center at 541-382-8346 for an appointment for evaluation. Andrew Jones,

Christmas carols By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

A friend of mine was listening, enchanted, as his 7-year-old sang Christmascarols when he heard her carol this: "Noel, Noel, Barney's the King of Israel." We all have favorite carols. At Unlucky Louie's house, always filled with kids and grandkids, it's "Peace on Earth and nurseries wild." Joe Overberry'sfavorite must be "All I w a n t f o r C h ristmas is an overtrick." Joe thinks it's nobler to go down in pursuit of an overtrick than to make his bid. As today's declarer at four spades (North's 2NT was a conventional raise), Joe took the ace of clubs, drew trumps, cashed the ace of hearts and finessed with dummy's jack.

(15 to 17 points). The next player bids two diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: You could turn a profit by doubling, and you might survive by bidding 3NT, but your best call is a cue bid of three diamonds, which acts as a substitute for a Stayman two-club bid. If partner bids a major suit next, raise to game. If he bids 3NT, you'll hope he makes it. South dealer Both sides vulnerable
