Stands of trees burned by the Pole Creek Fire last year near Sisterscould be logged this coming fall. The U.S. Forest Service is planning to sell timber on 1,051 acres of the 26,120-acre fire zone, according to the Sisters Ranger District of the Deschutes National Forest. The timber would be divided into 39 separate harvest units and total about 13 million board-feet of wood, including about I million boardfeet cut as firewood. "It's about salvaging what is burned and trying to get something from the fire," said Kristie Miller, the Sisters district ranger. The agency also plans to cut trees that could pose a falling danger on about 42 miles of forest road, which could be done in the next couple of months.

The fire forced about 30 hikers and campers to evacuate the Three Sisters Wilderness and destroyed four cars parked at the trailhead, a popular summertime entrance to the wilderness. In early November the Forest Service announced that lightning caused the fire. Much of the fire occurred in the Three Sisters Wilderness, according to the Sisters ranger district.

ein ' i'ow a ia'isa u ious onor More than 100,000 crows are making Danville, Ill., their winter roost this year — about half as many as last year, but not an abnormally low number. Residents aren't happy about the annual avian invasion, because it means daily power washing of sidewalks and trying to avoid the "white rain." But little can be done. By Joan Cary

Ideal crow country

Chicago Tribune

Crows typically migrate this far south in early autumn, then stay put until late February or early March, when they fly north again into W isconsin and Michigan, and possibly Canada, Bailey said.

DANVILLE, Ill. — In this Vermilion Countytown known for having what just might be North America's largest winter crow roost,there are half the number of black birds there

were a year ago.

While neighboring Cham-

That said, when the tallying was done at the annual Middlefork River Valley Christmas Bird Count on Jan. 1, the crows still outnumbered the humans nearly 4-to-l. T his season, more t h a n 100,000 crows have roosted here at night, in the trees and on the rooftops, eaves, awnings, fence posts, parking garage, traffic lights and telephone wires. And folks in this town don't like to — what's the word? — crow about it. There ar e n o so u v enir shirts to advertise this "Crow Capital's" claim to fame, but through the years, there have been plenty of sidewalks and store awnings splattered with droppings, residents complaining of being bombarded and a whole lot of people who get increasingly tired of stepping around "it." "It is the largest winter roost of crows that we know about in the U.S. and Canada," said Steve Bailey, of Mundelein, an ornithologist with the Illinois Natural History Survey. Danville-area vo l u nteers led by Bailey counted 121,500 crows during the bird census on New Year's Day. A year ago, the count was 238,000. In the winter of 1999-2000, there were 267,000, the highest numberrecorded.

A resurgent species The numbers fluctuate from year to year, and the recent numbers aren't unusually low, but the reasons for the decline over the past 12 months weren't hard t o d e termine: West Nile virus and drought.

paign County attracts only a couple of thousand crows, B ailey said, D a nville h a s the large roost because it offers a smorgasbord to meet the crows' winter needs. The town is nestled in a warm valley, surrounded by grain and soybean fields, and home to the Vermilion River. A welllighted downtown allows the birds to watch for their enemy, the great horned owl, and tall, old brick buildings with poor insulation offer warm roofs for sleeping overnight. At p re-dawn, th e c r ows will move out to the fields, the cottonwood trees along the river, the large local corn mill, and the nearby landfill again to feed. Scientists say they will eat anything, including roadkill. "I don't like them, but I'm also awed by them. They're very i n t elligent c r eatures," said Shelly Larson, Danville superintendent of community improvements. "The problem is that these are not little birds, and these are not little drops they leave behind. They're big, slimy and disgusting."

E. Jason Wambsgans/Chicago Tribune

Crows flock along the Vermillion River in Danville, III., where a quarter-million of the birds roost during the winter in some years. Crows and blue jays are the birds most vulnerable to the m osquito-borne West N i l e, and the drought not only cut down on the seeds, nuts and berries available for wildlife, but it also caused a big resurgence of West Nile, said Mike Ward, professor of w i l dlife ecology for the Natural History Survey at the University of Illinois. "West Nile thrives in hot, dry weather," he said. Despite their vulnerability, crows seem to "rebound very well" from West Nile, Bailey said. That might not be good news to the humans in this town of 33,000, whose past attempts to keep the birds away have mostly proved fruitless. Bob Jones, owner of the Dan-

ville Dairy Queen and mayor from 1987 to 2003, when the roost was at its largest, tried to wage war on the crows. Jones had two of the city's white pickups outfitted with "cannons" that sounded like a gunshot when fired. City work-

of black as the crows came in from all directions, and later when the sky was black, the trees limbs dipped with the weight of the large birds. The hoarse cawing of the social creatures was penetrated only by the sounds of people in the distance shooting off fireworks or a pop bottle rocket, trying to scare them away. Noise is effective, but again, just a temporary fix. Later, around 7 p.m., local bird-watchers say, large flocks numbering in the thousands respond to the call of a few, and swoop off to their main roost for the night. They may settle downtown, or near it, but they don't always sleep in the same place. Some days they're more visible than others.

ers drove through the streets shooting the cannons to scare the crows away. And it worked. Temporarily. Soon the intelligent birds got to know the trucks and would leave before any shots were fired, Jones said. Inevitably, they'd return. Marilyn Campbell, editor of Illinois Audubon Magazine and a resident of nearby Georgetown, expected that. "The mayor gave it a tr y, but the c r ows j ust m oved from place to place," she said. "Crows are pretty smart, and when I heard the mayor was going up against the crows, I bet on the crows."

Late-afternoon gathering About 4p.m. on a day earlier this month, small gatherings of crows started landing in and around Danville after feeding all day in the surrounding grain fields and landfill. Soon the treetops in town became speckled with black silhouettes. By 5 p.m., a striking pink sunset was offset by ribbons

Council Continued from A1 In addition to members of the public, the City Council heard from engineer Bob Willis, who worked on a couple of reports on the city water system during the last tw o decades. Willis said he was in aunique position to speak his m i nd Wednesday night because he was there as a volunteer and no longer represented the city or a consultant for the city. "The Bridge Creek water supply is probably the most valuable utility supply asset the city owns," Willis said. "The two pipelines are in terr ible shape. They w ere i n t errible shape when I f i r s t reviewed those pipelines 20 years ago ... They are now showing signs of i m minent failure, imminent catastrophic failure." Craig Lacey, of Bend, said the city had not heard much about the environmental consequences ofproceeding with the water project.

"The study by (consultant)

It would also benefit fish and the Deschutes River, if the city were to stop taking that cold water, Lacey said. Bend Chamber President and CEO Tim Casey delivered a s u rprise a n nouncement. He said the group's board of directors discussed the water project at a recent retreat and plans to hire a "neutral third party" consultant to evaluate the options for the city water system. The board of directors will consider hiring the consultant at its Feb. 28 meeting. "We've never taken a stance on it," Casey said. "But we think it's important we do." Based on the consultant's findings, the Bend Chamber will then take a public position on the water project.

New York Times News Service

W ASHINGTON — T h e Federal Co m m unications Commission on Wednesday took a step to relieve growing congestion on Wi-Fi networks in hotels, airports and homes, where Americans increasingly use multiple datahungry tablets, smartphones and other devices for wireless communications. The commission proposed

making a large chunk of high-frequency a i r w aves, or spectrum, available for use by unlicensed devices, including Wi-Fi routers like those that many Americans use in their homes. The agency's five commissioners also expressed hopes that the new airwaves would unleash new innovations, just as unlicensed spectrum in the past has made possible such devices as cordless phones, garage door openers and television remote controls. After apublic comment period, the commissioners will try to issue final rules and regulations, a process that could take a year or more. But all of the commissioners expressed hope that the new airwaves could be put to use without unnecessary delay. P ossible roadblocks d o exist, however, mainly because some ofthe airwaves proposed for the new applications are already in use by private organizations and government agencies, including the U.S. military. Congress has mandated that the FCC undertake the expansion o f unl i c ensed spectrum, and the Obama administration has urged the freeing up or sharing of airwaves currently allocated to

the federal government. But various government agencies, including a division of the Commerce Dep artment, h a v e w a r n e d against allowing consumer uses to interfere with current applications. Lawrence Strickling, assistantcommerce secretary f or c o mmunications a n d information, said in a letter to the commission that the Pentagon, the Department of Homeland Security and NASA use parts of the same airwaves for communication between aircraft and ground stations. Those communications enable activities like drug i nterdiction, combat search and rescue, and border surveillance. Julius Genachowski, the FCC chairman, said he was confident that the commission's engineers would be able to work with the affected government and private entities to solve interference problems. "It's very i mportant for t he country t h a t w e a l l lean into this in a problemsolving way," Genachowski said. "This is not a new challenge for the commission to address." While "it will require sign ificant consultation w i t h stakeholders" to avoid problems, he added, "consultation can't be an excuse for inaction or delay." The commission also voted unanimously to approve a new regulation allowing consumers and companies to use approved and licensed signal boosters to amplify signals between w i r eless devices, like cellphones, and the wireless networks on which they operate.

Jerry Fisher, a gunsmith in Bigfork, Mont., creates firearms that have attracted customers from around the world. In nearby Kalispell, rifles are not only part of the culture but also an engine of the economy. But the city has not been immune to the debate over gun control.

Guns Continued from A1 Members of th e g r owing

group of high-end gunsmiths say it is the mountains, the air and the game that draw them, not the presence of other artisans. But the area's reputation for this kind of gunsmithing has also made it a growing destination for more prosaic manufacturing of gun parts

and guns — including highend semi-automatic rifles and military weapons. In Kalispell, the Flathead County seat, 250 people earn

a living making guns or gun parts, a tenfold increase since 2005. That growth helped mitigate the effects of the recession, which was a body blow to construction, a major local employer. Another longtime

industry, logging, has also withered. Clint W a lker's c ompany, New Evolution Military Ordnance, became one of the newest entrants in the business within the last couple of years, joining a roster of companies that included Montana Rifle, McGowen Precision Barrels and SI Defense. Walker, who had been an editor of trade magazines covering video equipment, said M ontana Rifle w a s "doing literally tens of thousands of barrels" for large gunmaking companies back East. "They have to slow down and stop what they are doing to help us out," he said. "And they've done that. They said: 'You guys are local. You're family.' " "That is a large part of the success of this area," Walker added.

Learning gunsmithing To provide trained hands for companies like these, Flathead Valley Community C o llege started a course in gunsmithing last s ummer. Students learn everything from hollowing out a barrel to checkering a stock — carving fine crosshatched indentations behind the trigger both for decoration and to create a solid grip. Jane Karas, a former New Yorker who i s t h e school's president, said the program "focuses on craftsmanship that maintains the h i storic values" of the area. Her coll eague Susan B urch, w h o worked with a t r ansplanted Oklahoma gunsmith, Brandon Miller, to teach the course, added, "You're looking at the i ntersection of ar t a n d t h e outdoors." Homicides with guns are

"When that pine sits there for a hot summer it loses a lot of its value," he said. Burley said he didn't know whether Interfor would bi d for the timber. It depends on the quality of the wood once the Forest Service offers it for sale. "We'll just have to wait and see what happens," he said. A m i l l ion b o ard-feet o f timber is enough to fill about 250 log trucks and supplies enough lumber to frame about 65 average homes, according to theOregon Forest Resources Institute. The timber being offered for sale is on public land designated forharvests, Burley said. "There is no reason they shouldn't be salvaging this

timber," he said. Chad Hanson, director of the John Muir Project of Earth Island Institute, disagrees. The timber salvage would destroy precious habitat for the black-backed woodpecker, he said. The name of the bird comes from it s d ark b ack, which provides camouflage when it perches on charred trees. The ideal habitat for the bird, Hanson said, is severely burned dense,mature forests.

The Pole Creek Fire logging plan targets this type of tree for timber salvage, Hanson said. The John Muir Project, based in Cedar Ridge, Calif., is among the environmental and conservation groups petitioning the U.S. Forest Service to consider Endangered Species Act protections for the black-backed woodpecker. Hanson said the bird is at risk of extinction because of timber salvage in burned woods. A Central Oregon birder and researcher, Steve Shunk, of Sisters, countered such concerns at an Eastern Cascades Audubon Society meeting last

month. Shunk has said the birds are more dependent on beetles than burned woods and doesn't think they're in peril in Central Oregon. Hanson said he plans to send in comments on the plan and will consider an appeal if the Forest Service doesn't make an adjustment and leave more snags for the woodpeckers. "If they proceed with this it is a punch in the nose to all the efforts to protect black-backed woodpecker habitat," Hanson said. Miller, the district ranger, said a variety of woodpeckers were considered in m aking the timber salvage plan and that "lots" of habitat will still remain for the black-backed woodpecker. — Reporter: 541-617-7812, ddarlingC<

Th e Bulletin

The magazine is distributed free in Italian parishes each Sunday. The fact that it initiated the poll is an indication that the Catholic establishment in Italy has itself questioned whether tarnished cardinals should be allowed to vote — a remarkableturn of events for a conservative Catholic country that has long kept quiet about priestly abuse and still is deferential to the church hierarchy in its backyard. That i n i tiative f o llowed a petition by a group in the United States, Catholics United, demanding thatMahony recuse himself.So far 5,600 people have signed the petition, according to spokesman Chris Pumpelly. "It's the right thing to do," Andrea Leon-Grossman, a Los Angeles member of Catholics United, said in a statement on the group's website. "In the interests of the children who were raped in his diocese, he needs to keep out of the public eye. He has already been stripped of his ministry. If he's truly sorry for what has happened, he would show some humility and opt to stay home." M ahony, h owever, h a s made clear h e w i l l v o t e. "Count-down to t h e p apal conclave has begun. Your prayersneeded that we elect the best pope for today and tomorrow's church," he tweeted earlier this week. He promised daily Twitter updates. Separately on Wednesday, New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan was deposed about clergy abuse in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which he led from 2002 until 2009. The Milwaukee archdiocese has sought bankruptcy protection from nearly500 abuse claims. The attorney for the Milwaukee archdiocese said Dolan was mainly questioned about his decision to publicly name clergy known to have molested children.


Pope maytry to hasten voteon successor VATICANCITY— PopeBenedict XVI may enact a new law governing the upcoming conclave to elect a newpope amid continued uncertainty over whenthevoting can begin. The Vatican spokesman, theRev. Federico Lombardi, said Wednesday that he didn't know for sure if the new law under consideration would address the timing of the conclave fol-

lowing Benedict's Feb. 28 resignation. Hesaid it would contain some "clarifications" on certain points. But given the crush of interest surrounding the conclave date, it seems only natural it

might clarify the issue. The current law says cardinals should wait15 days after the

papacy becomesvacant before launching aconclave to allow all eligible cardinals to arrive in Rome,making March15 the presumed start. That delay, however,assumed apapal death and funeral. In this case, the cardinals already know that this

pontificate will end Feb. 28and can get to Rome in plenty of time.

Some canonists and scholars havesaid the current rules allow for some wiggle room onthe15-day wait given that most if not all the cardinals will already be in Rome for Benedict's final general audience Feb. 27 and his farewell meeting with

cardinals on Feb.28. — The Associated Press

Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, one of the Vatican's top canon lawyers, told The Associated Press that barring any canonical impediments, Mahony has a right and duty to vote in the conclave. At best, he said, someone could persuade him not to come, but De Paolis insisted he wasn't suggesting that someone should. Bishop Charles Scicluna, the Vatican's former sex crimes prosecutor, said it was up to M ahony's conscience to decide whether or not to participate. "It's not an easy situation for him," Scicluna was quoted as saying by Rome daily La Repubblica. Last month, a court in Los Angeles ordered the release of thousands of p ages of confidential personnel files of more than 120 priests accused of sex abuse. The files show that Mahony and other top archdiocese officials maneuvered behind the scenes to shield accused priests and protect the church from a growing scandal while keeping parishioners in the dark. Mahony was stripped of his public and administrative duties last month by his successor at the largest Catholic diocese in the United States. But t h e d r e ssing-down by Archbishop Jose Gomez only affected Mahony's work in the archdiocese, not his role as a cardinal. Gomez

has since urged prayers for Mahony as h e e nters the conclave. Mahony ha s r e sponded directly and indirectly to the outcry on his blog, writing about the many " h umiliations" Jesus endured. "Given all of the storms that have surrounded me and the archdiocese of Los Angeles recently, God's grace finally helped me to understand: I am not being called to serve Jesus in humility. Rather, I am being called to something deeper — to be humiliated, disgraced, and rebuffed by many," Mahony wrote. He said in recent days he had been confronted by many angrypeople."I could understand the depth of their anger and outrage," he wrote. "Thanks to God's special grace, I simply stood there, asking God to blessand forgive them." Mahony is scheduled to be questioned under oath on Sat-

urday as part of a clergy abuse lawsuit about how he handled a visiting Mexican priest who police believe molested 26 children in the Los Angeles archdiocese during a n inemonth stay in 1987. The Rev. Nicolas Aguilar Rivera fled to Mexico in 1988 after parents complained. He has since been defrocked butremains a fugitive, with warrants for his arrest in both the U.S. and Mexico.

Private-school tax credits sought State Sen. Betsy Close, R-Albany, wants to ask voters to allow

tax credits to pay for tuition at private and

religious schools. The Senate Education Committee is scheduled to take up the idea today, although it's a long shot in the

Democrat-controlled Legislature. Boosting access to private schools would

create more options for parents and improve schools by increasing competition, Close said. She has proposed a ballot measure asking voters to create an

• Summit teacherfiles grievance; student is boardmember's son By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

A local school board member sparked a monthslong grievance process with the teachers union last fall after he asked a high school principal to have a failing grade removed from his son's transcript. Nori Juba has been on the Bend-La Pine Schools board since 2005. His son, last year a student at Summit High School, withdrew from a second-semesterbiology course in April and instead completed an online biology course. What happened next created the rift.

According to documents and interviews, Juba asked then-Principal Lynn Baker to alter his son's grade from an F, which he received for dropping the class, to a W for withdrawal, which has no negative consequence.Juba said he knew his position on the school board might complicate the situation, but believes he followed district protocol and was within his rights as a parent. District rules dictate that a student can drop a class within the first 10 class sessions. Dropping the class after

10 class sessions results in an F that is factored into the student's GPA. According to district policy, a principal can change the F to a W on a case-by-case basis, "based on extenuating circumstances." Juba said that after withdrawing from the course, his son earned a B in an online 12week biologycourse in fewer than six weeks. "Considering that he had succeeded in another Bend-La Pine program and did a lot of extra workto get a decent grade, I went to the principal and asked for the F to be re-

moved andtohave a Wbe put in its place," Juba said. Last school year, about 100 withdrawals were given out to students. "The majority are due to medical conditions," said BendLa Pine Schools spokeswoman JulianneRepman. "We did have onecontested lastyear and one contested the year before."

Crook County High officials said the funds will be used for just that purpose. "We're thrilled and excited about this wonderful gift," Principal Rocky Miner said. "I feel like we should party all day long." School officials are discussing how to best use the $100,000. News of the donation was disclosed to them prior to Wednesday's announcement, and Facebook officials met with the schoolto discuss some possibilities, Miner said. The high school will likely look at how school districts across the state use technology in their classrooms before making any final decisions, he said. Facebook also announced a donation of $82,000 to the Crook County Foundation to pursue economic developmentopportunities in the county. Foundation Executive Director Kristi Steber said it would also spend the coming weeks looking at how best to use its funds. Facebook entered Central Oregon in 2010 when it announced plans to build a 300,000-square-foot data center on the bluffs on the west side of Prineville. The company has since finished its first data center and expects to complete its second this summer. — Reporter:541-617-7820, egluchlich@bendbulletin

St. CharlesHealth Systemaccused

of not payingworkersfor training By Anne Aurand The Bulletin

A nurse who works at Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville has filed a lawsuit against St. Charles Health System. The complaint says St. Charles has not paid hourly employees for mandatory training, an alleged violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Carol Lynn Giles, who was a lawyer licensed by the state of Alaska and has been a registerednurse employed by St. Charles since 2008, filed the class-action lawsuit in U.S. District Court in January. The complaint seeks reimbursement for unpaid hours associated with required training and legal fees. The lawsuit says St. Charles Health System, which runs

Lawsuit Contlnued from B1 One such letter, dated Jan. 15, 2009, says: "Time spent in mandatory training is generally compensable." "The training at issue is required by (St. Charles Health System.) Attendance isnot voluntary. The trainingis directly related to the employee'sjob and is designed to make the employee handle his or he r job more effectively. Thus, it is compensable," said Roxanne Farra, Giles' attorney, in an email. St. Charles would not respond to any questions about the lawsuit or its allegations, according to Kayley Mendenhall, communications coordinator for St. Charles Health System. "It is the policy and practice of St. Charles Health System not to comment on pending litigation," according to Gary Bruce,general counsel for St. Charles Health System. "However, St. Charles is committed to compliance with all l aws and re g ulations, i n c luding laws and regulations governing employment and payment matters." Employeesof Bend Memorial Clinic, another regional health care organization, are "generally" compensated for training ti me, according t o Katy Sparks, a spokeswoman for Bend Memorial Clinic. "Generally, BMC em ploy-

eesrequiring specific training and/or continuing education in order to perform specific job tasks and functions as a

core part of their job are compensated for their time and the cost of the training is an expense of the organization," Sparks wrote in an email. According to Farra, Giles first notified officials at Pioneer Memorial Hospital about the need to pay caregivers for required training and study time in November 2010. Giles filed a small-claims complaint in December 2011. To date, Giles hasn't received any money for training time, according to the complaint. However, in December 2012, St. Charles enacted a "study and test-taking time policy" and has more recently "been offering to pay caregivers for their unpaid study and testtaking time dating back two years," Farra said. The claim for unpaid regular and overtime wages might affect more than 250 people, according to the lawsuit, if applicable individuals choose to opt in. Giles and her attorney do nothave employment and payroll records, so the exact number of class members and the total amount of compensation due each plaintiff is unknown, the lawsuit says.

SALEM — Legislative sessions can be dull and boring, but Oregon lawmakers Wednesday moved to comm emorate t h e hum d r u m — even if no one is quite sure how. Based on their m undane names, the rural communities of Dull, Scotland, and Boring, Oregon, formed an international partnership last year to build cultural and commercial connections. And Oregon House lawmakers took that a step further with a vote to make Aug. 9 Boring and Dull Day in the state, putting the name of the U.S. town first despite mild objections from their European counterparts. The plan, which now heads to the state Senate, is intended to boost tourism, and the date this summer marks one year from the day the towns were officially dubbed a "pair for the


Republican Rep. Bill Kennener, the proposal's sponsor, announced the measure with a meandering, tongue-in-cheek, 10-minute speech — that never got around to saying what Oregon residents might do in observance. "While some might be inclined to call this frivolous, the reality is that this attention is attracting tourism and com-

Grade Continued from B1 Bend Education Association President Mark Molner took up the cause, and Pfister, through the union, filed a formal grievance. Pfister declined to comment Tuesday on the issue. "We certainly wouldn't have brought a grievance forward if we thought we didn't have a legitimate concern that the grading of students could come under undue influences that ought not be involved in the grading of a student," Molner said. In Bend-La Pine Schools, the grievanceprocess has five levels, beginning with an informal grievance that a teacher takes to an immediate supervisor or principal and ending with an appeal to arbitrators with the Oregon Employment Relations Board. Fewer than one grievance each year reaches the superintendent, Repman said, noting there are no special rules for a grievance involving a school boardmember."Allparticipants are treated equally throughout the process," she said. Pfister filed a formal grievance in writing, through her union representative, on Aug. 10. The grievance alleged that Baker had broken policy in changing the boy's grade, failing to review the grade change with P f ister a n d im p r operly removing the F from his transcript. In a June 14 decision, Baker wrote that the extenuating circumstances were the student's high test grades; that the student had a D, not an F, when he dropped the course; that he was successful in the online course; that the student had decided to attend Redmond Proficiency Academy in the coming school year;that hewas considered for an education modification plan; and that "it doesn't make sense to punish his behaviors with

A fellow Republican, Rep. Kevin Cameron, quipped that he spotted an intern falling asleep during th e a d dress, d rawing l aughs f r o m t h e chamber. Stephen Bates, the unofficial mayor of Boring, said the idea to pair the communities came from a Scottish biker who had the rather interesting idea while cycling through the sleepy Oregon town last year. Excited by her Boring discovery, she brought news of the town's existence across the

pond to Dull, prompting talks between the two lazily named towns. Bates said he's amazed at the international attention the partnership has received. When tourists "come to Boring I think they realize people aren't so boring or dull," said Bates, who is — officiallychair of the town's Community Planning Organization. He and a handful of residents plan to visit the Scottish village with a population of 84 in October. Dull is located off a dead-end highway in a spot so precarious that the Boring visit

He said he spoke to Superintendent Ron Wilkinson to "mitigate the perception" that he was trying to use his role on the school board to help his child. "I was aware it could become politically controversial, but just from a common-sense standpoint, there was absolutely no reason for me or any other parent not to say, 'My son demonstrated he could do the work, showed a mastery of

Superintendent's ruling Pfister and the union then appealed the grievance to the superintendent's office. Former Deputy Superintendent John Rexford heard the appeal in October. During the hearing, Molner argued the union's collective bargaining agreement indicated no one should ever be able to change a student grade without teacher permission. Rexford denied the grievance, ruling the principal had the administrative authority to change the transcript and did not violate either the teacher contract or school policy. Instead of a ppealing t he grievance to the school board, Molner and the school district reached an a greement

A former resident and descendant of the town's namesake, Bob Boring said he's delighted the community i s getting so much attention. "It enjoys all the teasing it gets, and it does get a bunch," said the retired math teacher. It wasn't immediately possible to reach anyone in the village of Dull, set in the Scottish Highlands between the River Tay and the deer-filled Dull Wood. An article published in June in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper said residents generally welcomed the pairing — even if one or two didn't see much humor in the stunt. Business owner Donald Riddell was one of the supporters, saying: "People see it as a daft joke, but there is a very serious side to this." "We employ 30 local people here, on a (side) road, in a recession," Riddell was quoted by the newspaper as saying. "Anything that can put us on the map and keep our staff in jobs has to be a good thing."

"Next month it could have been a different kind of compromising issue or complicating issue," he said. A teacher should have the right and responsibility to determine a student's grade, Molner said.

tate Rep. Kim Thatcher, R-Keizer, wants the Legislature to create another government entity to help get rid of some government entities. It's not as odd a request as it sounds. Oregon's government programs — as a species — tend toward immortality. They don't face deep challenges to efficiency or their need to exist. House Bill 2373, sponsored by Thatcher, would create a Sunset Advisory Committee. The bill would give the committee some money and have it systematically review state agencies and programs and recommend whether ornot they should get the hatchet. There is some review already. There are occasional audits. When the Ways and Means Committee does state budgets, it reviews agencies and programs. The problem is there is only so much time in the few months of the legislative session. There are literally hundreds of agencies, boards and programs. Legislative staffs are small. And stateagencies don'tcome before the Legislature pleading for less. "Ways and Means doesn't have the time or the capacity to get to it" at the level that this bill proposes, said State Rep. Dennis Richardson, R-Central Point, co-vice chair of the Ways and Means Committee. The result is agencies and programs that continue without their merits truly being tested by the Legislature. The bill also does other things. It sets sunset dates for state agencies. For instance, it would outright abolish them if the Legislature didn't take action to renew them.

The idea is to force a review to ensure the agencies are set up the way they should be and do not need to be redesigned or eliminated. It also creates new requirements for state rules in an effort to make them more visible to the public. After the Legislature makes laws, state agencies produce rules to implement them. The bill requires that an agency that is proposing new rules include a link or a copy of the rules on its website. Some of them do now. But many new rules can be hard to track down if a person doesn't know where to look. The other piece of the bill is to prod agencies to comply with a law that Thatcher got passed in 2005. That law basically required state agencies to do a review every five years of rules that they implement to ensure that they are doing what they are supposed to do. When we asked around last year, it was easy to find an example. Thatcher said she would like to see the Attorney General's Office or the Department of Administrative Services issue "gentle reminders" to ensure agencies comply. Thatcher's bill got a polite reception at its first public hearing. Nobody testified against it. Thatcher said herself that its specifics may need to be tweaked. But if the Legislature is concerned with good governance, it needs to do more to weigh what works and what doesn't.

M IVickel's Worth Thorough discussion of water is needed

Get legislators out of PERS


s the contentious business of fixing Oregon's Public Employees Retirement System begins, members of the Oregon Legislature may find themselves unable to take part in that system. A bill barring lawmakers from PERS membershiphas been introduced, supported by, among others, Sen. Tim Knopp, R-Bend, and State Rep. Justin Conger, R-Bend. It's a good idea. Legislators are, by definition, the men and women responsible for creating and changing the system that pays retirement benefits for more than 100,000Oregonians, a numberthat wouldtriple if all PERS employees were to retire tomorrow. Legislators can join PERS and become eligible for benefits accrued during their time in the Legislature. Some, like the members of the Central Oregon delegation, have opted out of PERS, though most have not. And that,K nopp and others say, is a problem. Even if lawmakers could set aside their personal stake in PERS reform — or the lack of it — persuading others that they're able to

remain unbiased about a subject in which they have a direct and personal financial stake is difficult, at best. Yet doing so is darned important. PERS is the noisiest elephant in the financial room of nearly every school district, city and other government agency inOregon these days. Those agencies are legally obligated to ensure that the system is funded at a certain level, and to reach that level, they're being required to shell out more and more money each year. In the Bend-La Pine school district, as one example, next year's PERS payment could mean the lossofasmany as 74 teachers,ifreform goes undone. And the school district is far from an oddity where PERS is concerned. It's clear comingup with reforms that change that picture won't be easy. Unions from the Oregon Education Association to the Service Employees International Union will fight, and fight hard, to keep the system as it is. Taking lawmakers' personal stake out of the equation should make the job a bit easier.

Proceed with the water project

The Bulletin's Feb. 9 editorial on the waterproject says: "The city could have put more effort into involving the community at the beginning. You can't say the community has not been involved more recently." Do you not see the cause-and-effect relationship here? It's only after decisions are made that we see something isn't right. As the Surface Water Improvement Projectprogressed, evidence began to surface that the city had bought an Escalade solution when an F150 would have sufficed. Just getting facts on the table is still not easy. Example: We get conflicting stories on how much pipe has been fabricated. The city holds all the cards and knows it, and apparently loathes dealing with concerned taxpayers. "The city should continue to engage the public on the project." Continue? To this day, there has never been a full exposition and discussion with the city on these issues. Letters to the editor and three-minute sound bites to the council are no match for a steamroller in motion. The injunction slowed things down, enough to get some new blood on the council. But it was still not enough to encourage the city to attempt to fully understand or resolve the objections to SWIR And isn't it interestingthat citizens are asked to vote on bike trails but never once asked to vote on the water project? Would it not be productive to calmly and thoroughly discuss the issues in a way that leads to a mutual understanding and the best use of ratepayer dollars?

I heard a wonderful political admonition years ago from a senior legislator toa rookie: "When you have the votes, vote. When you don't, talk." Opponents of the Bend City Council's previous decisions on the Bridge Creek drinking water project believe there hasn't been enough talk. They will likely continue to feel that way until they have the votes to scuttle the project, at which point there will have been sufficient "public input." The Central Oregon Association of Realtors has supported the city's decisions on the water project despite our concerns about the impact on ratepayers. The city'sprimary responsibilities are infrastructure and public safety. One of Bend's great competitive advantages is safe, high-quality drinking water that also provides adequate gravity-fed fire protection flows. It only makes sensethat we preserve the flexibility of two sources of water and replace the aging infrastructure we need to accommodate future growth and attract the job creators we so desperately need. Regrettably, the city is being pressured by a n u n f orgiving federal mandate and a narrow window of opportunity presented by the r econstruction of Skyliners Road. We agree with former Mayor Jeff Eager's description that the city is makingthe best decision from bad choices. Councilors Jodie Barram, Mark Capell, Victor Chudowsky and Scott Ramsay deservethe public'sappreciRoger DressIer ation for their resolve on this difficult Bend issue and for resisting the pressure of

Focus onpeople's Use of guns Over the past several weeks, two claims have been repeated in letters to the editor and elsewhere. The two claims, "guns don't kill people" and "people kill people," are pre-emptive, meaningless statements that were fabricated to filibuster effective reasoning about gun regulations. The two claims have since been reflexively recited to create a stalemate, thereby guaranteeing a status quo. The focal point of gun regulation should be "the use of guns by people," just as the focal point of driver's licenses and traffic regulations has always been the interaction of "people and vehicles." Regulations for driving a passenger car are different than driving a school bus or taxi or 18-wheeler. The focal point of licensing pilots, and concomitant flying regulations, has always been the interaction of people and airplanes. Regulations are different for private pilots and air transport

(commercial) pilots. The responsibility to regulate "individuals by activity" is a general belief and value that is wildly held in our culture. Think about it.

of special effects was blue-screen pioneer By Valerie J. Nelson Los Angeles Times

In the 1950s, special-effects p ioneer Petro V l ahos l a i d the groundwork that made a modern movie genre possible — the blockbuster. He did it by vastly improv-

ing a composite-image proc ess commonly k n own a s the "blue-screen effect" for the 1959 epic film "Ben-Hur." And he did it again when he created a r elated technique that made Dick Van Dyke appear to dance among the penguins in the 1964 movie "Mary Poppins." By devising new ways to combine separately shot footage of actors and backgrounds into asingle scene, he opened the door to such special-effect spectaculars as"Star Wars" and "Titanic." Scenes that had been too dangerous, expensive or difficult to film were suddenly possible. Every film since that has employed a form of the technique owes a debt to Vlahos, industry experts said. Vlahos, who received multiple Oscars for technological achievements, died Feb. 10, his family announced. He was 96. "It's hard to emphasize the import of his inventions," Bill Taylor, a visual effects supervisor, said at the Scientific and Technical awards ceremony held bythe Academy of Motion Picture A rt s an d S c iences thenight before Vlahos died. "He created the whole of composite photography as we know it." While serving as an assistant manager at the academy's Motion Picture Research Center, Vlahos spent six months thinking up his patented "color-difference system traveling matte scheme" for "Ben-Hur" and its spectacular chariot race, he later said. H e advanced th e b l u escreen effect in a major way by minimizing a strange side effect — halos that appeared around actors an d o b jects when footage shot against a blank screen was fused with action shots. Th e p r o cess would e v entually i n c l ude green screens. Vlahos also held a patent for a similar technique called sodium vapor composite photography, which unknown to him had been developed in Britain in the 1950s. His version yielded results that wereconsidered superior to the blue-screen process. The innovation was used in "Mary Poppins" and many other Disney films, including

"The Love Bug" (1969) and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" (1971). Alfred Hitchcock borrowed the technology for his 1963 film "The Birds." As an inventor of movierelated gadgets, Vlahos held more than 35 patents. They included low-cost screen-brightness meters, camera-crane motor controls and a method f or detecting d i stortion i n soundtracks.

T he parity shows in t h e standings, where a group of teams are bunched in the middle. There are no guaranteed wins. Last week, Oregon, which currently leads th e l e ague with a 10-3 record, was taken into overtime by l a st-place Washington State. "It's been really interesting to see and you don't have time as a staff or a team to take a breather and say, 'OK, we're playing X. That should be a win,' " Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said. eYou can't think that way." Robinson said the Pac-12 is

The Bulletin

Sixty-nine wrestlers from Central Oregon will be in Portland this weekend for the high school state championships. But none of them has had a season quite like Brendan Harkey's. Harkey is a sophomore at Crook County High and is the No. 1 seed at 160 pounds in the Class 4A portion of the two-day tournament. He takes an unblemished, albeit modest, 3-0 record to Memorial Coliseum after missing all of the regular season with a broken ankle he suffered during football last fall. See State /C4

The conference has been weakened in the recent past

by losing quite a few players to the NBA. The parity, combined with a lack of a highly ranked team or two, hurts the Pac-12's national reputation. "It's been really exciting to see so many games decided at the very end of the game," Robinson said. " If we h a d enough teams ranked, that would help us as a conference. It would be more like the Big Ten, where you have a lot of ranked teams playing each other closely."

Philadelphia useslate goal to slip past Pittsburgh6-5 The Associated Press PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers picked Up right where the tvvo rivals left off in the playoffs last season. Jakub Voracekscored the go-ahead goalwith 1:31 remaining in the third period to cap his first career NHL hat trick, leading the Flyers to a wild 6-5 victory over the Penguins on Wednesday. "It was a great game for the players, the fans, for everybody," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "It was good playoff-type hockey." It was the kind of wide-open, back-and-forth,

NHL ROUNDUP playoff-type hockey the two teams displayed during their Eastern Conference quarterfinal round series last season. The Penguins and Flyers combined for 45 goals through the first four games of the series, a best-of-seven set Philadelphia won in six games. Pittsburgh took a two-goal lead Wednesday before Philadelphia scored the next four goals. The Flyers had leads of 4-2 and 5-3 in the third period, only to watch as the Penguins rallied, ty-

ing the game with 2:03 remaining. Voracek'sthird goal came 33 seconds after Pittsburgh's Brandon Sutter tied the game on a wraparound. Voracek, who had a career-best four points Monday against the New York Islanders, threw a shot from behind the goal line, which bounced off Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun and into the net. "I didn't want to turn it over or do something stupid, so I just tried to throw it to the net,n Voracek said.

Blazer 'meant no harm'with tweets By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

P ORTLAND — Tr a i l Blazers forward J.J. Hickson found some trouble on Twitter. Hickson says he "meant no harm" with his Valentine's Day t w eets about when to cut of f c o ntact with a woman, insisting he was just joking around. The Trail Blazers' big man took to the social media site last week to post a series of tweets with the hashtag ¹girlbye that he meant to be funny one-liners. But some of the stream d rew criticism for c o ming across as demeaning toward women. He a l so i ncluded a s h out-out t o strippers. Hickson said he understood how some might be offended. "I meant no harm in any way. I'm not that type of person to cause harm or commit harm to anyone," he said. "It's an opinion and everyone has one. It just matters what side of the fence you're on." A spokesman for t h e Blazers said Wednesday that H i c k son's t w e e ts were treated as an internal matter that has been addressed. The team has a Twitter policy which it reviews with the players. Hickson is not the first person to say something considered o bjectionable on Twitter. But as a member of the Trail Blazers, he represents the team and the NBA. His Twitter profile says he plays for the Blazers. "I think I represent the Trail Blazers great. When I tweet, I tweet outside basketball. Like I said, it's my personal things I do and like I said, it's an opinion," he said. "I can do something good and a million people think i t ' s s o mething good and one person thinks it's wrong." Last T h ursday, w h i le the Blazers were on a sixgame road trip before the All-Star break, H i ckson fired off a few tweets that concluded with "¹girlbye." One example: "Your bag cost more than your rent ... ¹girlbye." Others made sexual references, and they d idn't go over well w i t h everyone. He posted about strip-

pers: "I know society (give) y'all a bad reputation. It's

good tho I don't judge. I definitely respect y'all hustle." Hickson has more than 17,000 Twitter f ollowers, and he's been a popular player in trade rumors, too, as the deadline approaches Thursday. The B l a zer s s i g n ed Hickson t o a on e - year deal worth a reported $4 million prior to this season. Because he has Bird rights, he has approval of any trade. He also gives up those rights if he agrees to any deal, which could impact the salary he could command infree agency. "I'm just here controlling what I c a n c ontrol,

playing the game of bask etball. Of f t h e c o u r t , things will t ak e care of t hemselves like they a l ways have in the past," he said. Hickson is in hi s f i f th season in the NBA, with previous stops in Cleveland and Sacramento. Hickson has c ertainly raised his stock with his performance this season. He's averaging 12.9 points and 10.4 r ebounds p er game. He has 28 doubledoubles, matching his ca-

reer high career high. And he's shot 50 percent or better from the floor for the last 17 games, a franchise record. On Tuesday night he had 25 points and 16 rebounds in Portland's 102-98 loss to the Phoenix Suns.

The Blazers (25-29) are mired in a six-game losing streak but still hoping for a

playoff spot.

Kansas center Jeff Withey (5) dunks against Oklahoma State during the first half of Wednesday night's game in Stillwater, Okla. Kansas won 68-67 in double overtime.

After he'd missed time and time again all night long, for some reason Naadir Tharpe's final attempt just felt right when it left his hand. And what a shot it was for No. 9 Kansas. Tharpe connected on a short jumper in the lane with 16.5 seconds left in the second overtime, lifting the Jayhawks over No. 14Oklahoma State 68-67 on Wednesday night for a critical win in the Big 12 championship race. Tharpe had made only one of his first 11 shots, and Kansas (22-4, 10-3 Big 12) hadn't made a field goal in either overtime, before one finally fell through at just the right time. "I knew I just had to make a play," said Tharpe, who was filling in at the point after starter Elijah Johnson fouled out. Travis Releford scored 18 points and Jeff Withey had three double-overtime free throws among his 17 points for the Jayhawks, who are tied with N o . 1 3 K a nsas Statefor the conference lead with five games to go.

Kansas missed its first seven shots after regulation, only escaping after Tharpe's play in crunch time. "Neither team had any offense and hecertainly made a huge play there late. Just huge," coach Bill Self said. "Biggest play of his life, I'm sure." Also on Wednesday:

The opening round of the Match Play Championship was suspended Wednesday when a cold rain that came down sideways quickly gave way to snow from a winter storm that dumped close to 2 inches on Dove Mountain in just over an hour. "I've never actually played golf to the point where we've actually stopped for snow, which is kind of crazy," said Jason Day of Australia, who was 6 up through 10 holes over Zach Johnson. "A little crazy for it to snow in the desert, as well. But that's just how it is. Mother Nature can do whatever she wants." Ten matches had not even started when players were called off the course as slush was starting to form on the greens. Two hours later, The Ritz-Carlton Club was a blanket of snow astemperatures dipped as low as 33 degrees. The rest of the day was called off. "I've seen snow on the course when I was a kid, but nothing like that on any of the tours," said Rory Mcllroy, who along with Tiger Woods was among those 10 matches that never had to hit a shot. Sergio Garcia, in the leadoff match, had just holed a 10-foot par putt to win the 15th

hole and go 2 up over Thongchai Jaidee when play was suspended. The openinground was to resume at 8:30 a.m. today, and the second round would start sometime that afternoon. The 64-man field is cut in half after each round, and with sunshine in the forecast the rest of the week, it should not be difficult to get caught up. So much for a tour that follows the sun. Ian Poulter's only other tournament this year was on Maui for the Tournament of Champions, where it took four days just to get started because of high wind, and then the 54-hole event was over 29 hours after it started. And now this. "I can't believe it. When have we ever seen that?" he said, taking off his rain gear in front of his locker. "The two events I've attempted to play this year have been three days of 50 mph wind and 2 inches of snow in an hour. It's absolutely, flippin' unbelievable." What does that say for the rest of the year? "Can't get worse," he said. "Just incredible. Bizarre. Have you ever seen it'? Especially where we are." Maybe he should consider himself lucky. At least he didn't play Torrey Pines, where fog wiped out an entire round Saturday and Woods had to wait until Monday afternoon to polish off his 75th career win. There were frost delays in the opening rounds of Phoenix earlier this month. But snow? "I remember one yearin Vegas in a collegiate tournament it was sleeting," said Webb Simpson, who played one shot. "We all charged toboggans to our coach in the pro shop and he wasn't too happy about it. This is crazy weather. But we've got a great forecast for the weekend, so hopefully, it will melt tonight." Poulter was cold from the start, rubbing his hands together in the morning chill of high desert — about 2,800 feet above sea level — and he jumped in place to keep warm. He built a 3-up lead over Stephen Gallacher through 12 holes. In only 3/z hours of golf, there was some impressive play. Bo Van Pelt, who took three shots to get out of a bunker early in his match against John Senden, won six straight holes — only two of them with birdies — to build a 5-up lead through 12. Matt Kuchar was 3 up over Hiroyuki Fujita through 14 holes, while defending champion Hunter Mahan was 4 up at the turn over Matteo Manassero. "We knew this was coming, so I think we were all somewhat prepared for the cold and everything," Mahan said. "We also didn't think we were actually high enough to get snow, and get this amount. We go sleet and ice, and you can't putt or hit shots with ice coming at you."

Draft Continued from C1 Running back Marcus Lattimore is trying to prove he can return from a gruesome knee injury. M athieu, a cor n e rback, a n d Da'Rick Rogers, a receiver, both were booted off the teams they intended to play for last fall after failing drug tests. Linebacker Alec Ogletree will have toanswer for a series of problems that included a suspension for violating team rules early last season, and linebacker Manti Te'o will likely contend with the girlfriend hoax all over again. And those are just the

big-name guys.

Lee Gordon, a former television anchor, runs a training program for Athletes Performance, whose client list includes Mingo and Lattimore. His advice: Be appealing, believable and accentuate the positive. "We tell them up front that coaching you on this is similar to tackling techniques and the things you do on the field, but you have to be yourself," Gordon said. "You can't be fake or people will see right through it. What we do is give them a chance to see the

Continued from C1 A state semifinalist last year as a freshman (he ended up taking fifth place at 138 pounds) he won all three of his matches at last weekend's Special District 2 regional in La Grande, includinga9-3 victory over teammate Dean Smith in the 160-pound final. "We'd moved on without him," Crook Countycoach Jake Huffman says about Harkey. "The doctors originally were going to take the screws and plate out (of his surgically repaired ankle), but they decided to leave the plate in and he ended up healing a lot quicker." Following a regimen of physical therapy and shadow wrestling until he received the doctor's OK, Harkey hit the ground running with an eye on this month's Special District 2 meet as his projected return date. "He just cranked it," Huffman says about his 160-pounder's surprise comeback. Harkey and the Cowboys lead the way for local squads with 21 wrestlers — including three No. 1 seeds — headed to Portland this weekend. Crook County took a school-record 22 wrestlers to the state tourney a year ago but finished a disappointing fourth when only one Cowboy advanced to the finals. This year, Harkey and f e llow s ophomores and top seeds Trayton Libolt (106

pounds) and Collbran Meeker (138) look to lead a pack of Crook County wrestlers deep into their respective brackets. "Obviously we have to have more kids win matches," Huffman says about the Cowboys' state-title goal this weekend. "The difference between this year and last is, this year, of the 21 kids we're bringing, 16 were in the district final." With the way seeding at state works, that is huge for Crook County. District champs face wrestlers that took fourth at another district in the first round of state, and district runner-ups wrestle those that took fourth. Last season the Cowboys were loaded with third- and fourthplace district finishers, which is not the case this year. Freshman 126-pounder Hayden Bates is a No. 2 seed for Crook County, as are sophomore Alex Urrea, at 152 pounds, and senior Gunner Crawford, at 195. "The bottom line is, we need to do what we've done all year," Huffman says. "Live for the moment, and wrestle one point and one match at a time." Ridgeview junior Boomer Fleming, one of two Ravens to qualify for state, is the top seed in 4A's 182pound bracket, and Madras senior Miguel Vasquez, a two-time state runner-up, is the No. 2 seed at 132 pounds for the White Buffaloes, who are taking six wrestlers to state. Redmond High, under first-year coach Kris Davis, won the team title at the Special District 4 regional meet two weeksago in Eugene and rolls into the 5A state tournament with 15 wrestlers.

Every little bit counts." In addition to the Panthers' four No. 3 seeds, Davis says seniors Brandon Short at 126 pounds and Jacob Breitling at 285 both could wrestle deep into their brackets, despite being unseeded. "Brandon's wrestled well allyear," Davis says. "He faltered in the final at regionals, but the way his bracket sets up, he's got a chance to get into the finals. "And Jacob, our heavyweight, if he catches fire, he could surprise some people," Davis adds. "With him being a bigger kid at the top

"Everybody on the bus can win at least one match (at state)," Bulldog coach J.D. Alley says. "That's the difference between a championship team and a team that just puts good wrestlers out there."

Armstrong will not interview with USADA CYCLING

By Jim Vertuno

The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Lance Armstrong won't do a tell-all interview under oath with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to reveal everything he knows about the use of performance-enhanc-

ing drugs in cycling. USADA officials had told A rmstrong he must speak with them if he wanted to reduce his lifetime ban from sports. Under their offer, Wednesday was the deadline for him to agree to the interview. Armstrong's attorney Tim Herman said that, after two months of negotiations, the cyclist re-

fused to participate in a process designed "only to demonize selected individuals." Armstrong said previously he is willing to participate in an international effort to clean up a sport that is based mostly in Europe. USADA chief executive Travis Tygart said the agency had expected Armstrong would agree to talk and would be "moving on" without him. "Over the last few weeks he has led us to believe that he wanted to come in and assist USADA, but was worried of potential crimi-

media and the (team) interviews as a know you'regoing to be the man." All this coaching has made things business opportunity." Obviously, the a d vice deviates infinitely more difficult for the teams greatly from player to player. to sort out.

"Today we learned from the media that Mr. Armstrong is choosing not to come in and be truthful and that he will not take the opportunity to work toward righting his wrongs in sport." For more than a decade, Armstrong denied using performance-enhancing drugs. But last year, USADA released a report that detailed extensive doping on his seven Tour de Francewinning teams and stripped him of those titles. Armstrong then admitted last month in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he doped to win those races.

" Breaking down that information is entirely up to the teams, and that's not the only thing that has changed about the combine.

Hundreds of reporters are now credentialed to cover the event as opposed to the dozens who used to show up 15 years ago, ascene Te'o might have to contend with this weekend for the first time since the hoax story broke. This year, the league will introduce a new measuring tool — the NFL Player Assessment Test, which has been billed as a compliment to the Wonderlic intelligence test. Polian described it as more of a personality test than a psychological examination but acknowledged most teams have been examining the personality traits of draft hopefuls for years. What else is different? The lessons Gordon gives on social media, the same medium that turned

Te'o from a national inspiration into a national punch line. "What we do is have interns go find out who we'll be working with and try to friend them, and usually about 85 percent of them will say yes," Gordon said. "We'll tell them we're all real people with real pictures and then we'll show them how easy it is to get access to their life and their world. We'll tell them that people are truly disguising themselves as other people, and if you don't know them to defriendthem because regardless of who it is,these people can see your pictures and all that stuff. We explain that these NFL guys, they know everything. So we tell them to clean it up before it's too late." And he does mean everything. While the stories of Mathieu, Ogletreeand others have been well-documented over the past year, it's not just those players who will face questioning this weekend. "I've been asked that already," Mingo said. "He knows he messed up, he made it harder on himself. He'll be prepared for it (the questions)." Just like all the other pro prospects this weekend.

Holiday season bounty?

1,520 "

Wall Street expects that Wal-Mart Stores enjoyed a decent holiday shopping season. The world's largest retailer, due to report fourth-quarter results today, plied shoppers with low prices and other enticements like product layaways. Investors will be listening for clues as to how Wal-Mart's low-income customers are reacting to a 2 percent rise in payroll taxes that started last month, delayed tax refunds and rising gas prices.

Stock indexes fell Wednesday. The sharpest drops came from stocks of raw materials producers, which were hurt by falling prices for platinum, copper and other metals. Aluminum producer Alcoa had the sharpest drop among the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones industrial average. Stocks in the energy industry also fell more than the rest of the market following a sharp drop in the price of crude oil. The drops pulled the Standard & Poor's 500 index down from the highest level it had reached since 2007. The index is within 4 percent of its record high, which was set in October 2007. The Dow is within 2 percent of its record high. Millennial Media

WASHINGTON — There are widening divisions among Federal Reserve officials about the value of its efforts to reduce unemployment, but supporters of those efforts remain firmly in control, according to an official account of the Fed's most recent meeting in January. An increasingly vocal

minority of Fed officials are concerned that buying about $85 bill ion ofTreasury securities and mortgage-backed securities each month is doing more harm than good. They argue the purchases may need to end even before unemployment drops, becausethe Fed's effortsare encouraging excessive risktaking and may be difficult to reverse.

But the Fed's policymaking committee reiterated its determination in January to hold course until there is "substantial improvement" in the outlook for job growth, and several officials cautioned at the January meeting that the greater risk to the economy was in stopping too soon, according to the account, which was published after a standard

three-week delay. "A few participants noted examples of past instances in which policymakers had prematurely removed accommodation, with adverse effects on economic growth, employment and price stability," it said. "They also stressed the importance of communicating the Committee's commitment to main-

taining a highly accommoda-

tive stance of policy as long as warranted by economic conditions." Proponents of strong action to reduce unemployment raised for the first time the possibility that the Fed should maintain a portion of its asset holdings even as the economy recovers, because

doing so could magnify the benefits. Its holdings now total almost $3 trillion.

• Prineville continues to benefit greatly, says themanagerof the Facebookfacility By Elon Glucklich The Bulletin

PRINEVILLE — The manager of Facebook's data center outlined the progress of construction and its economic impact at an hourlong discussion Wednesday morning, attended by about 50 community members: • More than 1,200 Central Oregon construction workers have helped build Facebook's two Prineville data centers. • The social media giant's completed data center on the bluffs just west of town uses 52 percent less energy than most comparable facilities. • And the company's second Prineville data center, under construction since last year, is on track to be com-

plete by July.

Data Center Manager

Joshua Crass said Prineville is home to "the world's most energy-efficient data center." Facebook officials have said Prineville's cool, dry air made building in the High Desert attractive, letting the company save on the cost of chilling computer servers to minimize overheating. It has also attracted Apple, which is building a data center nearby. Facebook's completed data center, referred to as Building I, "uses 70 percent less water than a chilled data center," Crass said. Announced in early 2010, Building I was Facebook's first company-owned data center. It is 300,000 square feet — about the height of an 81-story building if it were repositioned vertically, Crass sard.

Facebook has since built data centers in North Carolina and is working on another in Sweden modeled after the Prineville facility. Building 2 is progressing, Crass said. The two buildings are designedtobe mirror images of each other, both containing four halls stuffed with an undisclosed number of computerservers that store the information and photos of milli ons of Facebook users around the world. One of the four halls in Building 2 is complete, Crass said. The remaining three should be finished this summer. One of the largest projects in Crook County history, the data centers have been a major boon to the construction industry. Of the 2,500 workers contracted to build the centers, about half have come from Central Oregon, Crass said. The centersalso employ

about 70 full-time workers, made up ofemployees who monitor the servers, track power usage in the facility, and handle shipping and receiving, janitorial and security duties. In addition to the two primary data centers, Facebook is also working to build a smaller, 62,000-square-foot "cold-storage facility," to store data accessedless frequently by Facebook users, such as old photos that haven't been looked at in a while. Facebook also has space on its Prineville property to build a third large data facility, "as business needs dictate," Crass said, though there are no plans to do so anytime soon. "We have some room to grow," he said. "But we don't know what that will look like in the future." — Reporter: 541-617-7820,

The Japanese electronics giant said the console will be part of a new ecosystem focused on hardware, software and "the fastest, most powerful gaming network." The PlayStation 4 will be Sony Corp.'s first major game consolesince the PlayStation 3 went on sale in 2006. Microsoft Corp. is expected to unveil the next Xbox in June at the E3 video

game expo in Los Angeles. Last fall, Nintendo started selling the Wii U, though it plays catch-up in some respects in bringing the ability to play high-definition

games. Although the Xbox 360 came out a year before PlayStation 3, Microsoft's game machine has been more popular, largely because of its robust online service, Xbox Live, which allows people to play games with others online. The original Wii has sold more units since its launch than both its rivals, but it lost momentum as the novelty of its motion controller faded. Sales of the new Wii U have been slow. Underscoring the importance of a new PlayStation and the U.S. market, Sony held its announcement eventin Ne w York rather than in Japan, as it had in the past.

increase hunger, especially cravings for high-fat and high-carbohydrate food. Insufficient sleep is a known risk factor for weight gain. Now, a new study says it's possible that a person's eating habits have something to do with how much he or she sleeps.

Generally,sleep researchers say people who report sleeping between seven and eight hours per night are most likely to have better overall health and wellbeing. So researchers wanted to examine the eating habits of the healthiest sleepers. In the study, published online in Appetite, a research journal about behavioral nutrition, those who reported eating a large variety of foods had the healthiest sleep habits. "There really aren't any (specific) foods that will help

you sleep better tonight, that we know of," the study's author,Michael Grandner, a research associate at the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at University of Pennsylvania, wrote in an email. "But in general, a healthy diet will likely help you sleep better overall. More importantly, remember that sleep is an important part of health and it is important to make healthy sleep a priority."

deterred many women from trying them, women's health advocates say, even though they are cost-effective in the long run compared with other methods, because they last far longer. Under the Affordable Care Act, new plans or those that lose their grandfathered status are required to provide a range of preventive benefits, including birth control, without patient cost-sharing. Yet even when insurance is covering the cost of the device and insertion, some plans may require women to pick up related expenses, such as lab charges. SeeIUD/D2

Drugmak ers say discount program is being abused New York Times News Service When a private oncology practice in Memphis, Tenn., formed a partnership with a nearby hospital in late 2011, the organizations proclaimed that the deal would "transform cancer care" in the region. What they did not emphasize was that it would also create a windfall for them worth millions of dollars a year, courtesy of an obscure federally mandated drug discount program. T he program, known a s 3 40B, requires most d r u g companies to provide hefty discounts — typically 20 to 50 percent — to hospitals and clinics that treat low-income and uninsured patients. But despite the seemingly admirable goal, the program is no w u n der siege, the focus of a fierce battle between the pharmaceutical industry, which wants to rein in the discounts, and the hospitals, which say they might have to cut services without them. One issue is that the program allows hospitals to use the discounted drugs to treat not only poor patients but also those covered by Medicare or private insurance. In those cases, the hospital pockets the difference between the reduced price it pays for the drug and the amount it is reimbursed. In a new report, pharmaceutical industry trade groups say some hospitals have gone overboard in using the program to generaterevenue, straying from the original intent of helping needy patients. The report called for the discounts to be more narrowly focused. Hospitals say 340B was never meant to merely provide cheap medicines to poor people; rather, it was meant to help the hospitals that treat such patients. Itistooearlytosaywhat, if any, changes will be made. Hospitals say restricting the discounts to drugs actually consumed by poor patients would eviscerate the program's benefits.

MEDICINE Aftercare Continued from D1 "Patients leave the hospital not necessarily when they're well but when they're on the road to recovery," said Dr. David Goodman, who led a new study from the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care that shows different parts of the country do a better job at keeping those people at home. And The Associated Press, teamed with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, found that hospitals are hunting inn ovative ways to fi x a k e y hole in this health care: Those missed instructions. In Portland, nurses at Oregon Health & Science University start teaching heart failure patients what they'll need to do at home on their first day in the hospital, instead of just on their last day. In Salt Lake City, a nurse acts as a navigator, connecting high-risk University of Utah patients with community doctors for f o llow-up treatment and ensuring both sides know exactly what's supposed to happen whenthey leave the hospital. Some techniques are emerging as key, Coleman said: Having patients prove they understand by teaching back to the nurse. Role-playing how they'd handle problems. Finding a patient goal to target, like the grandmother who wants her heart failure controlled enough that her f eet don't swell out of her Sunday shoes.

Poor follow-up You'd be mad athaving to return your car tothe mechanic within a m onth, yet rehospitalization after people get their hearts repaired too often is treated as business as usual, laments Dr. Ricardo Bello, a cardiac surgeon at New York's Montefiore Medical Center. Heart surgeons try to prevent that by re-examining patients two to three weeks after they go home. But Montefiore patients tend to be readmitted soonerthanthat. So last fall, Bello's team began a special clinic where nurses check heart surgery patients about a week after they go home, at no extra charge — and have a chance to reteach those discharge instructions when people are more ready to listen. Plus, for that first month at home, patients are supposed to wear a bracelet with a phone number toreach Montefiore's cardiac unit 24 hours a day with any worries. "It changed my conception of dealing with a doctor," said Michael Lee, 60. Montefiore surgeons repaired a life-threatening crack in Lee's aorta, the body's main blood vessel, but his recovery derailed days after g etting home. He quit some medications. He was scared to wash the wound that ran from chest to navel, an infection risk. He

developed a scary cough and called that special clinic in a panic. It turned out t h e c ough was a t emporary n uisance — but nurses discovered a real threat: Lee's blood pressure was creeping up, a risk to his healing aorta. Those pills Lee quit were supposed to keep it extra low, a message he'd missed. And some hands-on instruction reassured Lee that he could handle his wound without tearing it. Without th e c l i nic, "he's definitely somebody we would have been called to see in the emergency room," said physician a s sistant J a s on Lightbody.

ing salty food. Step 2: These patients need a checkup a week after they go home. The hospital makes the appointment with a primary care doctor before they're discharged, to ensure they can get one. And for some high-risk patients who live too far away to easily track, Mitchell is pilottesting whether a h i gh-tech option helps them stick with care instructions.

During that first vulnerable month at home, those patients record their morning weight, blood pressure an d h e a rt rate on a monitor called the Health Buddy. It automatically sends the information back to Mitchell's team at OHSU and also will flash instructions to the patient if it detects certain risks. In Sunriver, Richard Pasmore's phone rang one morning. Nurses three hours away in Portland sawthat his weighin was high and adjusted his medications over the phone. The 67-year-old Pasmore thinks it prevented a return to the hospital: "It kept them totally abreast of everything that was happening with me." And by the end of the month,

The customized programs reflect the Dartmouth study's findings that there's great geographic variability in hospital readmissions. In Miami, for example, more than a quarter of Medicare patients with heart failure returned to the hospital within a month in 2010, the latest data available. That's double the readmission rate for those patients in Provo, Utah. In Dearborn,Mich., the readmission rate for pneumonia was 20 percent, twice that of hospitals in Salt Lake City.

Report: Tracking

system isneeded to fight fakedrugs

0 •

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Fighting the problem of fake drugs will require creating a n a tional drug-tracking system, the Institute of Medicine said in a new report. The call for putting medications through a chain of custody, like U.S. courts require for evidence in a trial, comes not long after the Food and Drug Administration warned doctors that it had discovered a counterfeit batch of the cancer drug Avastin. Fake and substandard drugs have become an increasing concern as U.S. pharmaceutical companies move more of theirmanufacturing overseas. A mandatory drug-tracking system could use barcodes or electronic tags to verify that a medication and the ingredients used in it are authentic at every step, from the manufacturing of the active ingredient all the way to the pharmacy, said Lawrence Gostin, a professorof health law atGeorgetown University who led the IOM committee that studied

the growing problem.

Personal trainer Katie Mital guides Lisa Arredondo through exercises at Mital's Personal Fitness studio recently. Arredondo, who has fibromyalgia, said gentle exercises that cater to her individual condition have helped improve her strength and her quality of life.

Continued from 01 The American Pain Society first published guidelines

for treating fibromyalgia pain in 2005. The Food and Drug Administration appr o v ed medications (Lyrica, an anticonvulsant, and Cymbalta, an antidepressant) for the condition in 2007 and 2008, said Kim Dupree Jones, an associate professor in the School of Nursing at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland and one of the authors of the The Nurse Practitioner journal report. The new generation of medical professionals believe it's a real diagnosis, said Jones, who has done considerable fibromyalgiaresearch and is president of the Fibromyalgia Information Foundation.

irewoo TV SPOTLIGHT By Sarah Lyall New York Times News Service

OSLO, Norway — The TV program, on the topic of firew ood, consisted mostly o f people in parkas chatting and chopping in the woods and then eight hours of a fire burning in a fireplace. Yet no sooner had it begun, on prime time on Friday night, than the angry re-

sponses came pouring in. "We received about 60 text messages from people complaining about the stacking in the program," said Lars Mytting, whose best-selling book "Solid Wood: All About Chop-

ping, Drying and Stacking Wood — andthe Soul ofWoodBurning" inspired the broadcast. "Fifty percent complained that the bark was facing up, and the rest complained that the bark was facing down." He explained, "One thing that really divides Norway is bark." One thing that does not divide Norway, apparently, is its love of discussing Norwegian wood. Nearly I million people, or 20 percent of the population, tuned in at some point to the program, which aired on the state broadcaster, NRK. In a country where 1.2 million households have fireplaces or wood stoves, said Rune Moeklebust, NRK's head of programs in the west coast city of Bergen, the subject naturally lends itself to television.

bolically and literally, to share conversation, to share food, to share silence, is essential to the Norwegian identity," he said in an interview. "Solid Wood," the title of Mytting's book, has a double meaning in N orwegian, signifying also a person with a strong, dependable character. Its publication appears to have

given older Norwegian men, a traditionally taciturn group, permission to reveal their deepest thoughts while seemingly d iscussing firewood. In t h i s way they are akin to passionate fishermen roused from monosyllabic interludes by topics like which fly to use and how to really understand what a trout is thinking. "What I've learned is thatyou should not ask a Norwegian what he likes about firewood, but how he does it — because that's the way he reveals himself," said Mytting. "You can tell a lot about a person from his firewood stack." The book has proved particularly popular as a gift for hard-to-shop-for men. "People buy it for their dads, their uncles - 'I don't know what to get him, but he has always liked wood,'" said William Jerde, a clerk at the Tanum bookstore in downtown Oslo. Tobias Sederholm, a clerk in a different store, said that one customer came in after Christmas having received copies from seven different family members.

By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

"I know about squeezes and end plays," a club player told me, "but if I had to execute both in the same deal, I'd feel like a r ight-handed pitcher throwing left-handed." In a "stripsqueeze," a defender must discard to a point where he can be end-played. Today's North-South pushed to five hearts over East-West's sacrifice, which might havebeen down only one. When West led a spade, South ducked (a key play), won the next spade, led a diamond to his king, drew trumps and led a club from dummy to his jack.

and he raises to three hearts. What do you say? ANSWER: Your jump-response promised nine to 1 I p o ints and invited game. You jumped to show values: A one-heart response would have promised none. You would go on to four hearts with A 4, K Q 3 2, 5 4 3, Q 6 4 2, but in your actual hand the queen of d i amonds may be worthless. Pass. East dealer N-S vulnerable

South then ran his trumps. After 10 tricks, dummy had the queen of diamonds and Q-6 of clubs; South had a diamond and A-5 of clubs. East had been squeezed: To guard the king of clubs, he bared the ace of d iamonds. South e x ited w i t h a diamond, and East had to lead from the king of clubs. Many strip squeezes are harder to play than simpler squeezes. The defender who i s s q ueezed may discard deceptively, forcing declarer to guess how the cards lie at the end.
