Meet the new airport manager

Kim Dickie, Redmond’s new airport director, is a colonel in the Air Force Reserves. She had been San Francisco International Airport’s director of security for the past seven years.

REDMOND — Redmond airport’s new director has decades of experience in airport security, facility planning and terminal management. But Kim Dickie says her new job will bring new challenges. “There are so many components to a small airport,” Dickie said. “When you come to an airport of this size, you find yourself working with many more consultants, many

She’s a colonel in the Air Force Reserves and comes to Redmond from San Francisco International Airport, where she worked for 17 years.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Just a week ago, what was most striking about the Republican presidential race was the possibility that the party’s least-dominant front-runner in many years, Mitt Romney, could effectively wrap up the GOP nomination faster than South Carolina anyone in primary results his party ever had. That came Gingrich 40% crashing Romney 28% down here Santorum 17% Saturday night.

By Lauren Dake • The Bulletin SALEM — On Feb. 1, Oregon will join a growing number of states that hold annual legislative sessions. Lawmakers have introduced ambitious

The Bulletin

Gov. John Kitzhaber hopes to push through legislation to change the state’s education and health care systems. The budget needs to be rebalanced. And legislators have already started working their colleagues, trying to secure votes for their individual bills.

What Democrats want Overall, Democrats say their take on tackling Oregon’s challenges is based more on a “value” approach rather than pointing to specific legislation. House and Senate Democrats released separate agendas, though they followed the same themes. Examples: • Help Oregonians who are struggling to stay in their homes. Like in the last legislative session, both sides of the aisle will propose bills addressing the foreclosure crisis. The Democrats, for example, want to ensure that a lender holds a mandatory meeting with a homeowner before the home can be foreclosed on. • Stand up for rural Oregonians hit hardest by the recession and declining federal funds. Democrats will be watching the recommendations coming from the timber payment task force and will push for a legislative fix that will help counties facing insolvency. • Allow a preference for goods made by Oregon’s small businesses and other American companies. Democrats have indicated their support for legislation that would, for example, help local transit agencies give a preference to buying vehicles made in the U.S. • Continue to foster job retraining and the health care transformation in Oregon. Democrats plan to work with the governor to continue overhauling the state’s health care system. They also support worker retraining and job placement programs through partnerships with businesses and community colleges. • Statement: “Protecting essential services that Oregonians rely on is the top priority for Democrats. We will balance this budget and eliminate waste in order to protect the vital programs that serve our seniors, kids, and most vulnerable.” — Senate Majority Leader Diane Rosenbaum Sources: 2012 legislative agendas from the leadership of both parties, accompanying news releases, interviews

Annual sessions and their challenges Voters gave lawmakers the go-ahead to make the switch in 2010. Oregon is now one of 45 states that hold annual sessions. “The legislative branch of the government had become unequal to the other two branches,” Courtney said. “It was suffering. It was supposed to be equal, but it was meeting so infrequently, and when it did meet it was cumbersome. It could not handle its workload in a meaningful period of time.” Rep. Gene Whisnant, RSunriver, said he’s concerned Oregonians who live east of the Cascades will have a difficult time attending public hearings. See Legislature / A6

agendas. The speed will be fast and the tasks many.

Some lawmakers have voiced concerns about the short session. Lawmakers have 35 days to meet, but they plan to adjourn after meeting for 29 days. Some say that restricts the ability of the public to testify or vet policy. Advocates of an annual session said it should increase transparency, giving the public another opportunity to weigh in on what’s happening at the Capitol. But both sides agree this first constitutionally mandated session in an even-numbered year marks a significant change in the way the state does business. “We’re all learning how to handle this session,” said Senate President Peter Courtney, one of the main backers of making the switch. Not to say lawmakers haven’t had some practice. Since 2007, they have held supplemental or special sessions during the interim, ensuring they met annually. There have been other special sessions in the past as well. Kitzhaber called four special sessions in 2002.

make sure the planes depart on time. “There are a lot of components that are different when you make that switch,” Dickie said. “Large airports are like a small city in a way. There is someone doing every job. Someone managing accounting, someone managing marketing. That’s different at a smaller airport.” In Redmond, Dickie will perform many of those manager-level roles. See Airport / A5

What Republicans want Lawmakers were more specific on their goals, and their potential targets: • Improve Oregon’s business environment: Republicans want to provide tax incentives to businesses that hire Oregonians — especially unemployed residents — and businesses that invest in the state. They also seek to strengthen enterprise zone rules and replace Measure 67’s corporate tax increases with “jobs-friendly” rates. • Provide tax relief to Oregon families. Specific GOP plans include doubling the two lower-income tax brackets and providing a $250-perchild tax credit. • Reform land use and take advantage of natural resources. Republicans want to ditch “onesize-fits-all” land use rules in favor of regional planning, and to extend sustainable tax credits to include some buildings constructed using Oregon forest products. • Make health insurance more affordable. Republicans want Oregonians who purchase their own insurance to be able to deduct the cost from their taxable income and forgo buying coverage that doesn’t fit their needs (their examples: men paying for mammography screenings, women for prostate screenings). • Increase education funding with a “School Savings Act.” Republicans plan again to push an overhaul of the Public Employees Retirement System to “significantly reduce the system’s unfunded liability” and to lower contribution rates for school districts. • Statement: “Republicans are returning to Salem with an aggressive agenda that empowers the private sector to create jobs and boost our economy. ... Our solutions will create a better climate for Oregon businesses, while putting more money in the pockets of Oregon families.” — House Republican Leader Kevin Cameron

When Linda Beck first heard that researchers wanted to use waterborne robots to help with the ongoing carp invasion of Malheur Lake, she and other scientists imagined fishlike machines gliding underwater. Instead, the robots, set to hit the lake’s waters in 2013, look like oversized toy boats. “We were a little disappointed by that,” said Beck, a fish biologist at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge’s managers are excited about what the robots could do in terms of controlling carp. The $2.2 million study starts this year with researchers from the University of Minnesota, Johns Hopkins University and Central State University in Ohio testing floating robots on lakes in Minnesota. It will continue in 2013 at Malheur Lake on the refuge near Burns, a lake that’s been plagued by carp for decades. If successful, the robot boats could accelerate research into where more than a million carp gather in the lake, possibly leading to their removal from its waters.

Fish finder There are 35 carp implanted with radio transmitters in Malheur Lake, Beck said. Using a boat and receiver gear to find those fish can take a scientists seven to 10 days. Enter the robot boat. Depending on how they are used they could find and follow the fish much longer than a human scientist, gathering boatloads of data about their movements. See Carp / A8

Dogs open to rare disease By Elizabeth Norton ScienceNOW

Thanks to inbreeding, dogs are more like us than ever before. Take the golden retriever. In the past few years, the breed has begun to suffer from one of a cluster of rare diseases that also afflicts humans, maladies that cause the skin to SCIENCE form scaly patchOF PETS es and that can sometimes be fatal. A new study of golden retriever DNA shows that the same gene is mutated in the dogs and in some people, offering a much-needed clue to the disease’s origins. Mating closely related dogs helps keep the breed pure, but it can also cause trouble. “When dogs are bred for qualities like size, temperament, or color, the selected genes may be physically close to other genes that cause disease,” explains geneticist Catherine Andre, who heads the Canine Genetics Group at the University of Rennes 1 in France. “The mutated copy of the gene can rapidly spread in a given breed.” And that can lead to an explosion of once-rare disorders such as hip dysplasia, epilepsy and syringomyelia (in which a too-small skull forces the brain against the spinal cord). Also cropping up lately in golden retrievers, Jack Russell terriers, and Norfolk terriers, are forms of a series of skin disorders collectively known as ichthyosis. Named after the Greek word for fish, the disorders are so rare in people that even the most common forms affect only about one in 2,500 individuals. Severe types such as Harlequin ichthyosis (which breaks the skin up into diamond-shaped plates outlined by deep cracks and is usually fatal in the first few days of life) occur so seldom that researchers can’t even make estimates

of their prevalence. So it was hard to track down the gene or genes responsible. But a clue has emerged — now that dogs have started coming down with the same condition.

To determine whether canine and human ichthyosis have a common basis, Andre and colleagues first checked for telltale mutations in golden retrievers. The investigators screened the entire genome with 50,000 genetic markers, ultimately finding mutations in a gene called PNPLA1.

For the next step, directed by co-author and geneticist Judith Fischer of the University of Freiburg in Germany, the researchers tested whether human patients had mutations in the same gene. Mirroring the results in dogs, family members with ichthyosis had mutations in both copies of the gene.

12th body found in capsized cruise ship GIGLIO, Italy — Divers plumbing the capsized Costa Concordia’s murky depths pulled out the body of a woman in a life vest Saturday, while scuba-diving police swam through the captain’s cabin to retrieve a safe and documents belonging to the man who abandoned the cruise liner after it was gashed by a rocky reef on the Tuscan coast. Hoping for a miracle — or at least for the recovery of bodies from the ship that has become an underwater tomb — relatives of some of the 20 missing appealed to survivors of the Jan. 13 shipwreck to offer details that could help divers reach loved ones while it is still possible to search the luxury liner. The clock is ticking because the craft is perched precariously on a rocky ledge of seabed near Giglio island.

Hamas’ leader will not seek re-election GAZA — The Palestinian militant group Hamas announced Saturday that its political leader, Khaled Meshal, would not seek re-election, opening the door to a possible leadership contest and adding to the uncertainty enveloping Hamas at a time of regional turmoil. Meshal, who has led the group’s political bureau since 1996 and is the face of Hamas’ leadership, told the Shura Council, the group’s highest decision-making authority, that he preferred not to run in elections scheduled in the coming months, Hamas said in a written statement. There was no immediate comment from Meshal, who is based in Damascus, the Syrian capital.

Egypt’s Islamists win 70% of seats CAIRO — A new political era began in Egypt on Saturday as Islamist parties won nearly three-quarters of the seats in parliamentary elections to inherit a nation mired in economic crisis and desperate to move beyond military rule and the corrupt legacy of deposed President Hosni Mubarak. The Muslim Brotherhood, the country’s dominant political and religious force, won 47 percent of the 498 seats in the lower house of parliament, ac-

cording to official final results. The ultraconservative Salafi Islamist party Al Nour won nearly 25 percent, followed by the secular parties New Wafd and the Egyptian Bloc, with about 9 percent each. The results confirm the dramatic transformation of the Brotherhood, which for decades was banned from politics and endured the mass arrest and torture of its members. The victory by the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party is a potent sign that political Islam is emerging from a year of uprisings to replace secular autocrats across the Middle East and North Africa.

Ousted Madagascar leader’s return halted JOHANNESBURG — A commercial airliner carrying the ousted president of Madagascar back to that country’s capital was turned around midflight, after government officials abruptly closed the nation’s airspace on Saturday, apparently to prevent the flight from landing. Thousands had gathered at the airport to greet the former president, Marc Ravalomanana, who was making his second attempt in two years to return to his homeland. Twice elected president, he was ousted in a military-backed coup in March 2009 and replaced by Andry Rajoelina, the former mayor of the capital, Antananarivo.

Radical Islamic group kills 165 in Nigeria ABUJA, Nigeria — At least 165 people have been killed in a series of attacks in northern Nigeria’s largest city, officials said Saturday, in what appears to be the deadliest strike yet by a radical Islamist group. The attackers in Kano on Friday evening struck eight government security buildings, the national police said, including the regional police headquarters, two local police stations, the local headquarters of the State Security Service, the home of a police official and the state police command headquarters. The radical sect Boko Haram, which has carried out an escalating campaign of violence in its battle to impose its version of Islamic law across Nigeria, claimed responsibility. — From wire reports


Obama to draw an economic line By Jackie Calmes New York Times News Service

President Barack Obama will use his election-year State of the Union address on Tuesday to argue that it is government’s role to promote a prosperous and equitable society, drawing a stark contrast between the parties in a time of deep economic uncertainty. In a video preview emailed to more than 10 million supporters on Saturday, Obama promised a “blueprint for an economy that’s built to last,” with

the government assisting the private sector and individuals to ensure “an America where everybody gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share and everybody plays by the same set of rules.” Obama has honed that message for months as he has attacked Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail, contrasting it with what he has described as Republicans’ “go it alone” freemarket views. Notably, Obama will again propose changes to the tax code so the wealthy pay more,

despite Republicans’ consistent opposition. Americans overwhelmingly support the idea, polls show, and the White House hopes that it gains traction with voters given last week’s acknowledgment by the front-runner in the Republican presidential race, Mitt Romney, that he pays a tax rate of about 15 percent because the majority of his income comes from investments. Advisers and other people familiar with the speech say Obama will flesh out his populist message with new proposals to spur manufacturing, in-

cluding tax breaks for companies that “insource” jobs back to the United States. Obama is expected to harden his challenge to China to increase its currency’s value for fairer trade — addressing the one area in which Romney has struck a more populist chord that appeals to the workingclass voters that Obama will need if he is to be re-elected. The Obama team still views Romney, despite his defeat in the South Carolina primary on Saturday, as the president’s most likely Republican challenger.

Japanese still struggling to protect food supply By Martin Fackler New York Times News Service

Laura Dekker hugs her family upon arriving in St. Maarten on Saturday. Dekker, 16, ended a yearlong voyage that made her the youngest person to sail solo around the globe.

Teen completes solo globe-circling voyage The Associated Press PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten — Laura Dekker set a steady foot aboard a dock in St. Maarten on Saturday, ending a yearlong voyage aboard a sailboat named “Guppy” that apparently made her the youngest person ever to sail alone around the globe. Dozens of people jumped and cheered as Dekker waved, wept and then walked across the dock with her mother, father, sister and grandparents, who had greeted her at sea earlier. Dekker arrived in St. Maarten after struggling against high seas and heavy winds on a final, 41day leg from Cape Town, South Africa.

Dekker claims she is the youngest sailor to complete a round-the-world voyage, but Guinness World Records and the World Sailing Speed Record Council did not verify the claim, saying they no longer recognize records for youngest sailors to discourage dangerous attempts.

ONAMI, Japan — In the fall, as this valley’s rice paddies ripened into a carpet of gold, inspectors came to check for radioactive contamination. Onami sits just 35 miles northwest of the wrecked Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, which spewed radioactive cesium over much of this rural region last March. However, the government inspectors declared Onami’s rice safe for consumption after testing just two of its 154 rice farms. Then, a few days later, a skeptical farmer in Onami, who wanted to be sure his rice was safe for a visiting grandson, had his crop tested, only to find it contained levels of cesium that exceeded the government’s safety limit. In the weeks

that followed, more than a dozen other farmers also found unsafe levels of cesium. An ensuing panic forced the Japanese government to intervene, with promises to test more than 25,000 rice farms in eastern Fukushima prefecture, where the plant is located. The uproar underscores how, almost a year after a huge earthquake and tsunami caused a triple meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, Japan is still struggling to protect its food supply from radioactive contamination. The discovery of tainted rice in Onami and a similar case in July involving contaminated beef have left officials scrambling to plug the gaps in the government’s foodscreening measures. The repeated failures have done more than raise concerns that some Japanese may have been exposed to unsafe levels of radiation in their food.

Airport Continued from A1 Dickie took the job because she wanted to serve as a top administrator. She also has family in the Redmond area, which made the job particularly attractive. After the city passed her over initially, Dickie went to City Hall during a trip here last year and pushed for more information. That initiative is what landed her the job, said City Manager David Brandt. Dickie says some of the responsibilities in Redmond will be new to her, and her first order of business is “to learn how everything works.” Initially, she says she’ll rely on the Redmond Chamber of Commerce for marketing. That shouldn’t be much of a problem, as Eric Sande, the chamber’s director, serves on the airport commission as well.

Before that, she served as head of airfield operations in San Francisco, which included managing construction projects and emergency planning. She also worked as a manager in terminal operations. In that role, she served as the representative for the airport director during day-to-day operations. Through the Air Force, she also trained in several different airport roles, such as maintenance and airport infrastructure. Dickie said it’s unlikely at this point in her career she will be called back to active duty. Her background in airfield construction will be critical this year as the Redmond field has a few construction projects planned. They include improving safety components of the runway and extending

taxiways for vehicles near the tarmac. And during the next five years, the main runway will be extended.

Airport growth The airport is a critical economic driver for the region, and Redmond has targeted the area around the facility as a prime spot for growth. Passenger numbers grew this year to 241,957 departures, about 5,000 more passengers than last year, and the airport’s best year since the economic downturn in 2008. Those numbers are likely to grow this year, with Allegiant adding flights to Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area. Outgoing airport manager Carrie Novick, who served in the lead position for 22 years, said she expects 2012 to be one of the airport’s best years on record with the additional flights and a recovering economy. Novick’s final day at the airport is Jan. 31. — Reporter: 541-617-7837,

years, according to Southern Metropolis Weekly, a southern Chinese magazine. Wang Qi, the manager of surrogacy agency daiyunivf. com, said the scandal hadn’t affected her business. The agency continues to be overwhelmed with applications from aspiring surrogate mothers, most of them “people who had emergencies and need a large sum of money.” Sales, she said, have been “quite good.” Wang is unperturbed by the media attention and government response. “There are so many dark things in society,” she said. “The woman caused quite a stir, but wait a few days and you won’t hear anything more about it.”

The babies have unleashed a barrage of editorials in state media about the ethics of surrogacy and in-vitro fertilization. “This completely topples the traditional meaning of parents,” said an editorial in the official People’s Daily. An editorial in China Daily denounced surrogacy as the “business of renting out organs.” Chinese hospitals have been forbidden to carry out gestational surrogacy procedures since 2001. However, surrogacy agencies seem to be booming in China, as evidenced by a profusion of websites and advertisements offering the service. An estimated 25,000 children in China have been born using surrogate mothers in the last 30



BEIJING — In America, a family with eight children is the premise for a reality television show. In China, where most couples are allowed to have only one child, it’s a national scandal. The revelation last month that a Chinese couple were the proud parents of two sets of triplets and one set of twins launched a round of soulsearching about how the super-rich circumvent the onechild policy. It is a tangled case involving a wealthy couple, two surrogate mothers, a gaggle of nannies and, to top it off, a team of government bureaucrats scrambling to figure out how they all came together. “We are focusing on the case of the octuplets and trying our best to find the medical institutions responsible,” a spokesman for the Guangzhou Health Office who gave his name as Sun said. He said the case poses “huge ethical problems.” The babies have stirred up fiery emotions on Twitter-like Chinese microblogs and Internet forums. “In this society, if you have money, you can have miracles!” one sardonic university student wrote on his Sina Weibo microblog. “Having children is now a luxurious game for the rich,” wrote a user in Guangzhou, the city where the family lives. A southern Chinese newspaper broke the news that the couple had four girls and four boys with the help of the two surrogates and in-vitro fertilization. The newspaper had been alerted to the case by an advertisement for a local children’s photography studio. In the photo, the babies, who were

born in September and October 2010, sit in a line against a pink backdrop wearing pink onesies and pointy white hats. Little is known about the family, which has moved away from its home amid the uproar. The article said the parents had tried to have children naturally for years before paying a surrogacy agency $158,000. A reporter from China Central Television interviewed former neighbors, who recalled witnessing an “extremely spectacular scene” when the family strolled around the complex. One neighbor said the couple had used an American doctor for the in-vitro fertilization. Many details reported in the state press focused on the family’s wealth. The parents hired a team of 11 nannies to look after the children, at a monthly cost of $16,000. For one set of babies’ one-month birthday, the parents held a drawing in which they gave away eight bars of gold as the prize. The one-child policy was introduced in 1978 to address economic, social and environmental problems in China caused by overpopulation. Although ethnic minorities and some rural couples have long been exempt from the policy, multiple children are also common among wealthy elites. An anchorwoman on China Central Television said the intersection of abundant wealth and abundant children has had a discomforting effect on Chinese society. “Where does this discomfort come from? It comes from unfairness,” she said. “Why? Because the vast majority of us strictly abide by the onechild policy. One family, one household, one child.”

Hundreds of moon rocks have gone missing over the decades. This one is on display at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.


But now that he says he has beaten cancer, he is asserting himself as the dominant figure in a tough campaign for re-election this year. As if to broadcast his renewed vigor, Chávez spoke for more than nine hours in his annual address to the National Assembly this month, never sitting down, and pausing only to take questions from legislators. Commentators said the speech, the equivalent of a State of the Union address, was his longest ever and that Chávez was intent on showing voters and politicians that his powers were not diminished. He said as much himself, concluding his speech by reading a passage from Nietzsche on the importance of will in overcoming obstacles. He ended with his own words: “Here I am, I have returned.” It was “vintage Chávez in campaign mode,” said Michael Shifter, president of Inter-American Dialogue, a nonpartisan policy group focused on the Western Hemisphere. “He’s basically saying, ‘I’m back, I’m in full control, this is the old Chávez.’ ” While Chavez may be seeking to recapture his momentum after a difficult year, he is also doing what politicians in other democracies often do in election years: moving to shore up the extreme wing of his party, which includes some of his most enthusiastic supporters. “He’s got to convince the base that he’s the Hugo Chavez he always was,” said David Myers, a professor of political science at Penn State. “And that’s what you’re seeing right now.”

HOUSTON — A longlost one in Colorado resurfaced at the home of a former governor, and another one in Arkansas was found among former President Bill Clinton’s memorabilia. Somebody swiped one from a museum in the island country of Malta, and somebody else who got his hands on one in Honduras tried to sell it in Miami to an undercover federal agent. Rare art? Priceless jewels? Nothing so terrestrial. All of these items were literally out of this world: moon rocks, meteorite samples and other so-called astromaterials that were lent to researchers by NASA or were offered as gifts to U.S. and foreign leaders. Hundreds of moon rocks and other space objects have been lost, destroyed, stolen or remain unaccounted for, some of which

59 researchers in the Houston and Washington areas who were audited could not account for all of the samples NASA had lent them, or the agency found other discrepancies, including researchers who had items that according to agency records either did not exist or had been lent to others. Spokesmen for NASA in Washington and Houston said the losses reported by the inspector general represented only a small fraction of the tens of thousands of astromaterial samples the space agency had lent to scientists around the world for more than 40 years. “Although such losses at any time are regrettable, and NASA agrees with the IG report that continuing to improve certain procedures could reduce the rate at which they occur, the benefits to science of making these samples available for study have vastly outweighed the tiny risk of loss,” a NASA spokesman in Houston, William Jeffs, said in a statement.


CARACAS, Venezuela — After a year shadowed by his cancer treatment, in which he appeared weakened and his strident voice was muted, Hugo Chávez, the colorful and obstreperous Venezuelan president who has made a habit of defying and taunting the United States, has found his swagger again. This month he hosted President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, embracing him as a friend, joking about nuclear weapons and laughing off the charge by the United States and its allies that Iran was seeking to develop an atomic bomb. He vowed to pull out of a World Bank arbitration process that could force Venezuela to pay billions of dollars to foreign companies, like Exxon Mobil, whose property he has nationalized. And, in one stroke, he found a way to irk both Washington and his political opponents at home, appointing a new defense minister who has been accused by the United States of supporting the drug trafficking activities of a Colombian rebel group classified as a terrorist organization by the State Department. Throughout the summer and fall, Chávez appeared frail, when he showed up in public at all. He curtailed a once busy schedule and stopped conducting his weekly television program, “Alo Presidente,” which for years had been a major factor in his ability to rouse his core supporters and shape the national dialogue.




GOP Continued from A1 Florida presents a major challenge, given its size and complexity. The stakes there will be sizeable. Romney cannot afford another defeat there, given that he has more resources to wage a campaign in a state where campaigning is costly. Gingrich, however, risks losing his momentum if he is not able to capitalize on his South Carolina success in Florida. Though Romney is clearly hurt, many Republicans still see him as the favorite to win the nomination. The overriding question is whether Saturday’s loss is merely a small setback of the kind experienced by many past presidential nominees. Or does South Carolina mark the beginning of real erosion in Romney’s standing that could lead to the former House speaker winning the nomination, something unthinkable only a month ago? That’s what Florida, and then Nevada, Michigan, Arizona and perhaps other states on the calendar will tell us. But there is no doubt that the defeat here on Saturday represents a setback to Romney, who now has won just one of three opening contests in the GOP race after it looked like he was positioned to start the year 3-0 (though he still has two second-place finishes and thus the best overall record of the field). Strong debate performances by the former House speaker and a week of missteps and stumbles by the former Massachusetts governor brought the race to this moment.

Down to a 2-person race? A week ago there were six candidates still standing in the GOP race. Now, though technically there are four, including former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, the Republican race is now the two-person contest that many once anticipated. That it is between Romney and Gingrich is the latest evidence of conventional wisdom being thrown into the wastebasket. In a head-to-head race, Romney enjoys superior resources and a superior campaign operation. His campaign long has

South Carolina underscored what has been known about Romney for a year, which is that he has not won the hearts of Republican voters. prepared for a protracted contest. Gingrich is riding the momentum of someone who twice went through near-death experiences, overcame the odds and emerged ready to fight on. Romney has the support of elected officials and what passes for a Republican establishment, many of whom see Gingrich as a risky nominee. Gingrich is trying to tap the energy of the conservative grass roots of a party whose base stands to the right of Romney and has never been comfortable with him. South Carolina underscored what has been known about Romney for a year, which is that he has not won the hearts of Republican voters. His appeal was that many nonetheless saw him as the party’s best hope to defeat President Barack Obama in the general election, and it is still the key to his hopes of winning the nomination. In South Carolina, however, Gingrich won a slim majority among the 45 percent of the electorate here that cited electability as the most important candidate quality in their vote. No doubt the debates played a critical role in those assessments. If that carries over to other states, the dynamic of the race may have changed fundamentally. A Gingrich adviser, who asked not to be identified in order to assess the state of the campaign, said that if the former House speaker has crossed the threshold of acceptability on the question of electability, he could defeat Romney on issues and ideology.

Romney’s errors South Carolina also exposed another problem for Romney, which is that he has not been an effective candidate in the closing days of a race. Though he won New Hampshire handsomely, he had two bad days there just before the primary. Here in South Carolina, there were more unforced errors, particularly the stumbling way he dealt with calls for him to release his tax returns. He will need a quick pivot to address that weakness. But Romney’s advisers said Saturday that they welcome a twoperson race with Gingrich and that the former governor is both ready and eager for the next phase of the contest. They said the contrast between a businessman and former governor versus a two-decade member of Congress who has been a Washington fixture for decades would work to Romney’s benefit. “Once you’re down to a one-on-one race, then it’s a binary choice and we like that choice,” said Russ Schriefer, a top Romney adviser. Drawing those contrasts began with Romney’s concession speech on Saturday night. He cast Gingrich, though not directly by name, as a rival who has never run a business or a state and who has attacked free enterprise. He suggested that Gingrich has picked up “the weapons of the left” to try to bring Romney down and said that someone “who demonizes success is not fit to be our nominee.” That will be part of the core message he takes into Florida beginning Sunday.

Optimistic Santorum presses on to Florida By Katharine Q. Seelye New York Times News Service

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Despite the cloud cast over Rick Santorum’s campaign by his third-place showing in the South Carolina primary on Saturday, his aides said he was pressing on to Florida today, while also pursuing a broad national campaign strategy. And his aides promised to wage a long campaign, battling state by state for delegates. Santorum plans to visit a conservative church in Pompano Beach, Fla., today and join a debate Monday night in Tampa, eight days before the Jan. 31 primary there. But he also intends to campaign in states that vote the following week, including Nevada, Minnesota and Colorado, as well as Arizona and Michigan, which vote at the end of February.

Legislature Continued from A1 “I think we’re disenfranchising a lot of citizens when we try to run legislation through in that (short period of) time,” he said. Whisnant would like to see annual sessions be more restrictive, rather than letting each lawmaker introduce bills. Each lawmaker can introduce two bills. In addition, each committee can introduce five bills. This is in addition to the bills the governor submits. The scope should be limited to focusing only on the budget, he said. There are states that have limited-scope sessions, according to Angela Andrews, a policy specialist with the National Conference of State Legislators. Wyoming meets annually and has 20 days in which lawmakers work only on the budget, according to Andrews. But Courtney disagreed with the limited-scope sentiment, saying public policy is often as important as budgeting. “This is no attempt to ramrod or rush, but make sure Or-

“Our campaign is small, and no state is a make-or-break state for us,” said John Brabender, Santorum’s top media strategist. “We are very frugal,” he added. “We can go on endlessly.” The possibility of picking up a smattering of delegates in these states makes them more enticing than Florida, a big, expensive state that awards its delegates on a winner-take-all basis. That means that even a second-place showing earns no delegates, making it a risky place to play. “We’re not parking ourselves in Florida,” Brabender said. “There are other good states with proportional voting that will give us delegates.” Looking on the bright side, campaign aides noted that Santorum had outlasted five other candidates who had dropped out. And at his campaign party

at The Citadel here in Charleston on Saturday night, Santorum, sounding more victorious than conciliatory, declared, “Three states, three winners, what a country!” He hoped to remind voters that he had won the Iowa caucuses, although the news came in a belated tally that denied him bragging rights until a couple of days ago. Until then, Mitt Romney had been the perceived winner, by eight votes. Santorum said Saturday that he was disappointed that his victory in Iowa was tallied so late. The Santorum campaign is counting on Gingrich’s firstplace finish in South Carolina to reconfigure the race substantially. For one thing, aides said, the victory hurts Romney more than it hurts Santorum, because Romney was supposedly the inevitable nominee.

egonians have a window and significant time to respond to policy and budget issues every year, instead of every other year,” he said. Despite the short time frame, both Republicans and Democrats are pushing for substantial changes. Some of the policies for which they are lobbying failed in the last legislative session, which lasted five months. Both parties are putting the focus on the economy and helping struggling Oregonians. House Republicans have put a “50,000 jobs in five years” theme on their agenda. Their goals include pushing for more harvests in state forests; expanding the state’s enterprise zones; and offering tax breaks for lower-income individuals and tax credits for businesses that hire unemployed Oregonians, according to House Republican Leader Kevin Cameron. They will also work to ease the state’s land use laws, strengthen teacher evaluations and put a hold on the state’s spending on travel, advertising and other things they deemed nonessential.

Like their House counterparts, Senate Republicans hope to look at the state’s land use laws and allow counties with fewer than 50,000 people who have not had an increase in population for a decade bypass the state’s land use laws. They will also push for a twoyear moratorium on rule making, something that was discussed last session. Both House and Senate Democrats are pledging to “stand up for the middle class” this session. They want to ensure homeowners who are facing foreclosure are able to meet with their lenders before being foreclosed on. Democrats, which have so far outlined a more “valueoriented” approach to their priorities, according to Senate Democratic spokeswoman Molly Woon, will also be working to ensure teachers keep their jobs and to keep decreasing class sizes. They will be working with the governor to continue with the state’s overhaul of the health care system and prioritize funding to protect seniors and children. — Reporter: 541-419-8074,

For Gingrich, what’s next? For Gingrich, the question is whether South Carolina will be remembered as his high-water mark. His confidence grew by the day over the past week, beginning with his debate performance Monday and aided by a second strong debate Thursday. By the day before the primary, it was evident that he believed that he would win here and was now in a position to challenge Romney seriously for the nomination. But it has often been the case that Gingrich makes mistakes when he is riding high, and that is the danger he faces now. Call it overconfidence, hubris or whatever, Gingrich has been his own worst enemy in the past, and he will come under an even louder barrage from the GOP establishment who see Romney as a more reliable candidate to lead the party in the fall. Romney has the money and organization that give him a head start in Florida. Already nearly 200,000 Floridians have cast ballots in the primary, and several GOP strategists said it is likely that Romney leads among that group. But superior campaign money and organization count for less in this campaign than in some past ones. Debates have done much to supplant TV ads and direct mail as the most effective medium for delivering messages and for voters to assess the candidates. In South Carolina, nearly two-thirds said debates were either the most important or one of several important factors in their choice. Among that group, Gingrich won by better than 2-1. All that makes Florida as unpredictable as everything else in this race has been. After Florida will come Nevada and Michigan, both states that Romney carried in 2008 in his unsuccessful bid for the nomination, and Arizona. That gives the Romney camp some hope that they can absorb the lessons of Saturday’s defeat, rebound and eventually prosper. But thanks to the voters in South Carolina, who delivered another memorable primary campaign, Romney now faces a real test of his capacity to rally his party and fend off a competitor who long ago was written off.

Gingrich tapped into GOP’s anger By Gina Smith McClatchy-Tribune News Service

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina Republicans are frustrated, and it showed Saturday. Frustrated with a sluggish economy that won’t reverse course. Frustrated with the related stubborn 9.9 percent unemployment rate. And hopping mad with a federal government that, they say, has broken faith with the American people by running up huge debts and stripping states of their legitimate rights under the Constitution. Republican voters statewide found a mouthpiece for their anger Saturday in Newt Gingrich, overwhelmingly handing him a primary victory after he dominated two well-watched debates in the crucial last days before the primary. The former speaker of the U.S. House used the debates to launch a fiery attack on the media, Washington and his chief Republican rival, Mitt Romney, finding a kindred spirit with South Carolina Republicans disillusioned by the economy and Democratic President Barack Obama. With a series of debate one-liners, Gingrich convinced those voters he had the brains and the guts to go toe-to-toe with Obama in November. “It’s time for a bulldog president,” said Rema Thomas, 60, of Chapin, who decided to vote for Gingrich after watching the two South Carolina debates. “Grab ’em by the pants leg and don’t let go until you draw blood. That’s Newt.” Debate performance never mattered more. Gingrich received a standing ovation at Monday’s Myrtle Beach debate for saying he would teach the poor to work. And he brought a Charleston

Economy, Obama are top concerns, exit polls show CHARLESTON, S.C. — Concerns about the economy, the desire to defeat President Barack Obama and Newt Gingrich’s performance in the recent debates helped voters in the South Carolina Republican primary make their decisions. The contest was fluid until the bitter end — more than half made their decision within the last few days, according to a survey of voters. Gingrich was supported by men and women alike, evangelical Christians and Roman Catholics, those who support the Tea Party and those who are neutral about it. Mitt Romney, who until earlier last week was considered the front-runner in South Carolina, did the best among moderates, very affluent voters and those who oppose the Tea Party. — New York Times News Service

crowd to its feet during the first five minutes of the start of Thursday’s debate, turning a question about his relationship with his ex-wife into an assault on the media. Front-runner Romney may have had the cash, outspending Gingrich in the Palmetto State by nearly 2-to-1, and the air of inevitability, but he failed to galvanize the GOP base and proved to be lackluster in the debates, losing his train of thought and stumbling over whether he would release his tax records. All in all, it was a bad week for Romney, who was assailed for his role as a venture capitalist at Bain Capital, his offshoring of money in the Cayman Islands and had his Iowa win reversed by a recount that found former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania the winner.

As the cost of heating oil soars, users shiver and cross their fingers By Diane Cardwell and Clifford Krauss

David Harris added a wood stove to his North Brookfield, Mass., house to lower his heating oil bill.

New York Times News Service

NORTH BROOKFIELD, Mass. — When David Harris built his 2,000-square-foot hilltop home nine years ago, he wanted to put in natural gas, but the utility wouldn’t run a line to his house. Like many people here, he was stuck using heating oil. Harris added a wood stove to help cut costs and now uses only about one-third of the oil the house would otherwise need. But that did not stop a deliveryman for Crowley Fuel from handing him a $471.21 bill earlier this month for a refill that should get him to April. “You just cross your fingers and hope that it doesn’t get too much worse,” Harris said. Actually, it probably will — for him and the residents of the roughly 8 million other U.S. homes that use heating oil, mostly in a band from Maine to Pennsylvania. While natural gas prices have plummeted to 10-year lows, heating oil prices have been steadily rising for years and are expected to reach record levels this winter, precipitated by higher costs for crude oil and the shutdown of several crucial refineries in the Northeast and in Europe. The Energy Department projects a price of $3.79 a gallon over the next few months, more than a dollar above the winter average for the last five years. Analysts do not expect much relief in the longer term, either, because global oil prices are expected to stay high amid political instability in the Middle East and rising demand from developing countries. With electricity prices also down, utilities are trumpeting that bills will drop this season for customers using gas and electric heat. “The people who have been unable to switch off of heating oil will be increasingly penalized in the coming years,” said

Kelvin Ma The New York Times News Service

Jay Hakes, a former administrator of the Energy Information Administration and now the director of the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum. “There’s going to be a continuing incentive to get off heating oil, because every day the headlines and experts say that over the foreseeable future, we will have natural gas at attractive prices.” Nationwide, the average household using oil spent $2,298 on heat last year, compared with $724 spent by gas users and $957 spent by electricity users, according to the Energy Department. This year, heating oil users are expected to spend 3.7 percent more than last year, while natural gas customers are expected to spend 7.3 percent less and electricity users will spend 2.4 percent less, according to the department. Many oil users — living in places like Alaska, Maine and even affluent parts of Manhattan — do not have the option to switch to natural gas. Some are simply too far from a pipeline. For others, converting to natural gas is unaffordable, with costs that can run to tens of thousands of dollars for each home. As a result, they are trapped in a cycle of spending more and more for heat while those who use natural gas and electricity are generally spending less and less. That dynamic is at work in households across the economic spectrum, but the cost

gap looms as a crisis for the poor, experts warn, since the federal government has cut financing for energy assistance programs. “We’re concerned about a public health problem if there isn’t additional money found,” said Mark Wolfe, executive director of the National Energy Assistance Directors’ Association. “We’ve really never been in a situation before where we’re going into the winter with very high prices” for heating oil, he said, adding that the highest prices tended to come near the middle or end of the season. Heating oil could grow more scarce in the Northeast this winter, the Energy Department warned last month. Companies have been closing refineries that produce heating oil because of declining profit margins. Sunoco and ConocoPhillips recently announced the idling of two major refineries in Pennsylvania, and a third refinery owned by Sunoco may close next summer. Ultimately, heating oil faces a grim future, said Bob LaFlamme, who took over Crowley Fuel in North Brookfield from his wife’s family 23 years ago. “People are looking for alternatives,” he said, adding, “Even one of my own employees switched over, so that’s telling you something.”

About the common carp Scientific name: Cyprinus carpioro Characteristics: Native to Europe and Asia, the fish are bronze-gold or a golden yellow on the sides. Belly is typically a yellowishwhite. Adults range from a foot to 2 feet in length. Carp in Malheur Lake average 8 pounds each and weigh up to 15 pounds. Breeding: Spawning starts in late April and goes into June. Females lay between 100,000 and 500,000 eggs among plants found in water 1 to 4 feet deep. Habitat: Lakes, ponds and slow-moving sections of rivers. Food: Sift through mud in search of plants and insects along lake and river bottoms.

Carp Continued from A1 “It would cut down a lot of field work time,” Beck said. The 6-foot robot boats — and wheeled versions designed to drive on ice when lakes freeze over — could figure out where the carp gather during winter, giving refuge managers places to target netting them. Under development for about two years, the boats are loaded with electronics, Volkan Isler, the University of Minnesota professor leading the research, wrote in an email. He said the robot boats are designed to be completely autonomous. “In other words, they use computers and sensors on board to decide how to find and localize the fish,” he wrote. Researchers are developing four robot boats, Isler wrote, and Malheur Lake should provide a challenge due to its size and complexity. The National Science Foundation, a federal agency set up by the U.S. Congress in 1950 to fund scientific research, is providing $2.2 million in grants for the projects. The research could lead to advances in robotics and biology, said Lisa-Joy Zgorski, spokeswoman for the Virginia-based foundation. And it could lead to a revival of lakes like Malheur Lake. “It can potentially solve a real problem,” she said.

The carp have cut the food supply for migrating birds, so as long as there are carp in the lake, there likely won’t be birds. Beck said there likely are about 1.2 million carp in the lake, which typically covers about 34,000 acres but this year is experiencing high water and is covering 71,000 acres. Refuge managers have tried clearing the lake of carp by treating it with rotenone, a poison, five times since 1955.

While the poisoning will kill the carp — 1.5 million turned belly-up in the 1955 poisoning — the fish eventually return to the lake when its waters merge with the Silvies River about every seven years. The river has been infested with common carp since the 1920s when either the government or landowners plopped them into its waters to control vegetation, Beck said. The plan failed; the carp didn’t eat the plants that were targeted. Malheur Lake isn’t alone. The fish are invading waters all around the country, so the robot boat study could lead to a carp solution used nationwide. “It allows us to do something useful for society, so I’m very excited about it,” Isler said in a written statement. — Reporter: 541-617-7812,

4 snowmobilers rescued Friday

Deadline set for water decision

Deschutes County Search & Rescue personnel assisted two groups of two snowmobilers each who got stuck near Todd Lake on Friday. Both groups were in an area where trail grooming has been temporarily suspended because of recent heavy snows. In both cases, deep snow drifts and whiteout conditions had caused the riders to become disoriented. All four riders were found well dressed and properly equipped for the conditions. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office and the Deschutes National Forest are advising skiers, snowmobilers and snowshoers to be cautious when heading into backcountry areas hit by recent snowfalls. Many trails are ungroomed or poorly marked, and the avalanche danger is high. — Bulletin staff report

• City manager says Bend must choose by fall, regardless of EPA By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

Bend has until September or October to decide whether it will proceed with the Bridge Creek water system, City Manager Eric King said Saturday. King and other elected

officials and community leaders met Saturday morning at the Bend Chamber of Commerce offices with Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, to discuss the congressman’s efforts to push back an October 2014 deadline to begin treating city water for cryp-

tosporidium, a potentially deadly microorganism. Friday, Walden sent a letter to the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, asking the federal government to grant the city flexibility in meeting the deadline. If the EPA does not grant

an extension by this fall, King said the city must decide if it wants to go ahead with the project without facilities to remove cryptosporidium and risk getting fined by the agency. Walden said he expects the EPA will respond soon, but made no promises whether his request will be granted. See Water / B2

Putting their

‘dama’ tricks

Myles Franceschina, 10, attempts a trick with his kendama during a tournament at the Boys & Girls Club in Bend on Saturday.

to the test WASHINGTON WEEK WASHINGTON — In a largely symbolic gesture, the House of Representatives voted Wednesday against raising the nation’s debt ceiling by another $1.2 trillion. The vote was authorized by the deal struck last August resolving the impasse over whether to raise the country’s debt ceiling, which pushed the country to the verge of defaulting on its debt. But in order for Wednesday’s vote to have any effect, it would have to pass the Democrat-controlled Senate, and President Obama would have to opt not to exercise his right to veto. Both of those eventualities are unlikely. The vote passed the Republican-controlled House by a margin of 239 to 176, with six Democrats joining the majority and one Republican voting against. Two members — Rep. Jeff Landry, R-La., and Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill. — voted “present.” The $1.2 trillion of additional debt is expected to last until after the election in November, neutralizing it as an issue during the campaign.

Deschutes surveying public on wider ban on tobacco By Erik Hidle The Bulletin

The Deschutes County Health Department would like to ban smoking on all county property. Before recommending the sweeping ban to county commissioners, however, it wants to gauge public sentiment. To that end, officials have created an online survey that David Visiko, the county’s health educator, considers the first step in establishing the ban. “The survey is where we begin to gather information,” Visiko said. “From there we can take what we have into policy consideration.” County smoking regulations differ from building to building. While lighting up is prohibited at some properties, people may smoke in other locations as long as they remain 30 feet from an entrance. This relegates smoking to some county parking areas and lawns.

during the kendama tournament at the Boys & Girls Club in Bend on Saturday. The kendama is a Japanese toy consisting of a ball on a string connected to a wooden handle with two different-sized cups and a spike.

RULES OF THE GAME The goal is to perform tricks by juggling, catching or balancing the ball. For the tournament Saturday, rules were similar to those of the classic basketball game “horse.” Two participants competed at a time, with one performing a trick. If the trick succeeded, the other would have to duplicate the trick. If missed, the participant would get a letter in the word “dama,” short for Kendama. The person to spell out “dama” first lost. The winner of the competition received a kendama and a bag of candy. Proceeds from the tournament’s $5 entry fee went to the Boys & Girls Club. — Joe Kline, The Bulletin

1912 effort keeps curios in Bend This feature is compiled by Don Hoiness from archived copies of The Bulletin at the Des Chutes Historical Museum.

100 YEARS AGO For the week ending Jan. 21, 1912

Curios will remain here The highest bid received at the sale of the J. Anthony Mitchell collection of curios and books Saturday afternoon was $187, made by W.P. Vandevert on behalf of the people of Bend. If the sale is confirmed by the county court, the collection will become the property of the citizens of this town. Desiring to see the curios

remain in Bend as the nucleus of a museum, Mr. Vandevert circulated a petition Saturday and secured pledges of $187. It is proposed to place the collection in a public place, probably in a room with the library, where the many interesting things which Mr. Mitchell had got together from nearly all parts of the world may be seen by visitors and others. Persons having curios and relics which they are willing to part with will be asked to donate them to the museum, and eventually a large and valuable collection will be secured. A large crowd attended the sale Saturday afternoon, being attracted by the articles which were displayed in the Triplett building by Adminis-

trator West. The collection contains swords, firearms, maps, tapestries, Indian relics, stones, hides, flags, horns, books, etc. Some of the articles are rare and of much value.

Jolly time planned A unique entertainment program has been arranged for Friday night at the K. of P. Hall by the Fraternal Brotherhood lodge. The silhouettes of Bend young women will be thrown upon a screen and the boys will try their luck at guessing who the original is. The lucky ones will win the young lady as his partner for the evening, together with a box of good eatables which each will bring. See Yesterday / B2

Yesterday Continued from B1

Bachelors guests of the Priscillas At the Markel bungalow in Wiestoria, the Priscilla Club was “at home” having as their guests Bend Bachelors for the first time. Invitations sent out told the bachelors to bring “apron and sewing” and a number of them did. On arriving they found the young women wearing their Priscilla caps, busy sewing. Aprons, needle and thread and something to sew were supplied and some time was spent in sewing. The girls had much fun at the expense of the men who tried to sew but didn’t know how. After this part of the program came a “talking bee.” To each Priscilla had been assigned a word which she was to use at least three times in conversation with each man, and to the man making the most complete list fell the honors of the game. D.M. Davis proved to be the lucky guesser. During the game candy made by the girls was served and at the close the punch bowl was brought forth and healths drunk. At 10 o’clock the bachelors bade their hostesses good night, having had an evening of much enjoyment. There were 18 men and 18 young women present.

Howard Hughes sets cross country record Howard Hughes, wealthy young sportsman and pilot, established a new transcontinental airplane record today when he set his airplane down at Newark airport less than eight hours after taking off from Los Angeles. He completed today’s 2,490mile flight in 7 hours, 28 minutes and 27 seconds. On Jan. 14, 1936, Hughes crossed the continent from west to east in 9 hours, 27 minutes and 10 seconds. His average sped then was 265 miles an hour. Hughes, streaked across the country in his “mystery” racing plane this trip at an average speed of 332 miles an hour.

Roosevelt’s second term starts today Franklin Delano Roosevelt took the oath for his second term as president of the Unites States today and pledged his new deal administration to further reform to aid the underprivileged. “They have been challenged and beaten,” Roosevelt said of “autocratic powers.” “The legend that they were invincible … has been shattered.” He indirectly challenged suggestions for constitutional change to expand the powers of government. But he invoked the Constitution to achieve his ends. Roosevelt said our forefathers had created a strong government with powers of united action “sufficient then and now to solve problems utterly beyond individual or local solution.” “Nearly all of us recognize that as the intricacies of human relationships increase so power to govern them also must increase — power to stop evil; power to do good.” The president said progress out of the depression was obvious. But he found his program unfulfilled — saw and pointed for his listeners to see millions of under privileged Americans. He proposed to use the materials of social justice “to erect on the old foundations a more enduring structure for the better use of future generations. “We are beginning to abandon our tolerance of the abuse of power by those who betray for profit the elementary decencies of life.”

Our fun-loving friend, Paul Hosmer, has died; he will be missed by many of us. (Editorial) You will excuse the people around The Bulletin’s office today, if they appear not to be enjoying themselves. They aren’t. Most of us feel a real sense of loss. For it was this morning

that his long-time friend and neighbor, Henry Fowler, came into the office to tell us of the death of Paul Hosmer. This was kind of hard to believe. It seemed that it was only a few days ago that Paul himself was in the office, with his ready fund of jokes — most of them pretty good, a few of them pretty bad. Paul Hosmer had more fun out of life than almost any man we knew. He brought to Bend, in 1915, a background as a newspaper man, boxer, and musician, if you can imagine a combination like that. He came here as a stenographer for a lumber company, those being the days when lumber companies liked their stenographers to wear mackinaws, chew tobacco, and shave at least three times a week. He left Bend for a stint with Colonel Greeley’s timber regiment in World War I, and left an indelible impression on certain parts of France. He returned to Bend, crossed the river, and began running Pine Echoes, a house organ, for Brooks-Scanlon, Inc. And he ran it. He wrote all the copy, took all the pictures, read galley proof, dummied for the printer and for a time even ran his own mail room. Pine Echoes was eagerly awaited in hundreds of lumber offices around the United States. Not the least of these was the head office of the company which employed him. For one of Hosmer’s favorite pastimes was sticking a needle into some of the stuffed shirts (at least, he considered them to be stuffed shirts) in his own organization. He loved the sound of escaping hot air. Hosmer used to do a lot of freelance writing and photography, but had given them up in recent years. A new breed of editors had come on the scene. They wanted their lackeys to meet deadlines, which was an insult. They expected prompt answers to letters; Paul rarely answered letters at all, much less promptly. They expected their men to wear neckties on assignment; rumor had it Paul owned a necktie, but it was never confirmed. Hosmer was of an age that made it impossible for him to have been a Boy Scout in his earlier years. The organization just hadn’t started when Hosmer was that young. But he was a frustrated Boy Scout in some respects until the day he died. He was a walking catalog for Abercrombie and Fitch equipped with the latest in outdoor camping and cooking equipment, some with some added home-made touches. These went in the back of his car or station wagon, and gave him an excuse to stay in the woods for meals and nights, an excuse he managed to seize upon with some regularity. (Continued next week)

like blisters that burst from within the earth. Twisted juniper trees, some hundreds of years old, seem to desperately cling to the jagged rock formations. And beneath the trees and nearly hidden in narrow hideaways among the rocks are faint red drawings, messages left by prehistoric Indians who called this rugged part of the world home. This is the Badlands. Alice Elshoff loves this place just east of Bend on the edge of the High Desert. The self-described “desert rat” is the unofficial leader of a group urging the federal government to bestow a wilderness area tag on the Badlands. This “Badlands Bunch,” as they call themselves, includes about 100 local conservationists who believe that at least 23,000 acres of this fierce basin deserve wilderness protection. The Badlands, named in the 1920s because of its harsh terrain, is a surprisingly undisturbed area tucked in between Bend and Horse Ridge, only about 10 miles east of the city limits. Elshoff has spent a halfdozen years seeking wilderness protection for the Badlands and she predicts it will be several more before Congress is pressed hard enough to formally consider the idea. “I enjoy nature but I do not enjoy politics,” said Elshoff as she led two first-time visitors across the rocky terrain of the Badlands. “I’m doing this because I really think the Badlands is a place that needs protection,” she added. “It’s our responsibility to protect places like this for future generations.” Elshoff’s tour of the Badlands began on Highway 20 at the top of an ancient shield volcano that made a huge bulge in the High Desert centuries ago. She slipped under a barbed-wire fence and led the way across the uneven terrain on the south side of the Badlands. “This is a place to move slowly and notice little things,” she said. “You have to be patient and let the area reveal its secrets.” The first such secret was less than a mile from the highway. Hidden by juniper trees and imposing basalt rocks was a wide hole in the ground, so-called “Pit Crater” at the Badlands. And on the north edge of the crater was a fairly large cave — a place already robbed by amateur archaeologists who violated federal laws by digging up and removing Indian artifacts from the cave. Elshoff, a former teacher who used to take her classes on field trips to the Badlands, said a wilderness designation is crucial to protection from vandals and others who litter, cut wood and destroy the area.

Because Jones could be armed, nearby residents were evacuated and the Central Oregon Emergency Response Team was brought to the scene.

O N Smuggler who used Islamic charity free until ruling The Associated Press MEDFORD — A federal judge has issued an order allowing a man convicted of using a defunct Islamic charity to smuggle money to Saudi Arabia to remain free while waiting on an appeals court ruling. Pete Seda, also known as Pirouz Sedaghaty, was convicted in 2010 of tax evasion and conspiracy for using his Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation charity to help smuggle $150,000 from Oregon to Saudi Arabia in 2000 and signing a fraudulent tax return to cover it up. His lawyers said he’s not a risk to flee. U.S. District Court Judge Michael Hogan agreed, ruling that Seda will remain free while an appellate court decides on his appeals process, the Mail Tribune newspaper of Medford reported. Before that process gets under way, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will decide whether Seda should stay out on bail while it considers his appeal. Federal prosecutors did not oppose Seda’s defense team’s motion. The defense argument was based on a 9th Circuit ruling that essentially states defendants who get out on bail in U.S. District Court before beginning their prison terms should stay out on bail while the appeals court makes its own bail decision. The 9th Circuit judges have not indicated when they plan to rule on Seda’s request. Seda was ready to board an airplane next week for Colorado, where he was ordered to begin serving his 33-month federal prison term, before he learned of the ruling. At trial, prosecutors alleged that Seda’s motive was to fund Islamic terrorists in Chechnya. Hogan ruled they failed to show that connection. If the argument had been successful, it could have led to as many as eight years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines. For much of the past three years, the former arborist from Ashland has been living in Portland with his wife and working.

Welding mentoring melds technique and job security By Elida S. Perez The (Salem) Statesman Journal

SALEM — When two seasoned welders met a couple of years ago, they wanted to find a way to help other people interested in the industry learn the skills. That’s when Dave Rabe and James Stanton decided to form R&S Welding Mentors LLC. They started their mentoring program in Keizer in February 2011, but moved it to South Salem a few months later, Stanton said. The pair established their mentoring program to help displaced workers, people wanting to change careers or people wanting to learn a new skill set. The business is not a member of the American Welding Society, nor is it authorized to issue certification in welding.

Makes certification easier But students who pay to take their classes, which aren’t required, are finding it easier to acquire certification from the American Welding Society, the Oregon Building Association or the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. “We try to create a learning culture,” Stanton said. The mentoring program gives people the welding skills

they need to pass a certification test, Stanton said. But it also helps establish good work ethics and communication skills to be able to have staying power in the workforce. Wes Williams, who recently passed his certification test after completing his program with R&S, said his skills were “general” before the program. “They were just good enough to stick stuff together,” he said. The mentoring enabled him to learn more advanced skills and helped him get past areas where he struggled previously, he said.

Surviving layoffs Nathan Olivares enjoyed the fact that he was able to learn welding skills as well as the “softer” skills. He said the company expressed the importance of welders taking care of themselves physically, being good employees and being sociable on the job. Rabe said they try to teach in a relaxed environment so students can get comfortable with communicating and working with other people. If there were to be a potential layoff situation, Rabe said knowing how to be a good employee and being person-

Prison ends 3-day lockdown The Associated Press SALEM — The Oregon State Penitentiary has ended a lockdown that went into effect Thursday after high water from Mill Creek threatened the 146-year-old facility. Prison officials canceled visitations and most inmate pro-

able can make the difference between being fired or not. “We want these guys to withstand the layoffs,” Rabe said. The program is targeted toward structural steel, fabrication and production welders, but also offers training sessions for artwork and hobbyist welding. There are five-week sessions, two-week sessions and a 15-week package available, Rabe said. Prices start at $1,800. Rabe said the advantage of going through their program is that people can quickly learn the trade and get into the workforce. “They don’t need to put their lives on hold to get a job,” he said. Although the program doesn’t guarantee job placement, Rabe said R&S works with job-placement companies to help find jobs for its students.


Bomb victim was not intended as target, police say By Nigel Duara The Associated Press

CANBY — More than a month after a pipe bomb exploded in the face of a contractor who was helping friends to move, police in Canby say he was not the intended target but don’t know who — if anyone — was. Police Chief Bret Smith held a news conference Friday about the case of 31-yearold Ivan Velasco Rodriguez, who died Dec. 11 after opening or handling what’s described as a container resembling a toolbox. “Our investigative team feels pretty confident that Mr. Rodriguez was not the intended target,” Smith said.

Relying on tips Smith said police have no leads and no suspects in the killing. “It’s a very tragic event that has left a family with no answers,” Smith said. “Unfortunately for us, we still have not been able to find a suspect or motive.” Without a suspect or leads, they’re relying on tips from the public in the hope of discovering who built and left the pipe bomb that Rodriguez found. Canby Police Chief Bret Smith said Friday he hopes a fundraiser for the wife and four children of the 31-yearold Rodriguez will help elicit tips from the public. Rodriguez died of head trauma after the Dec. 11 explosion, which left the Oregon town on edge for weeks.

Witnesses told police that Rodriguez either poked or picked up a box resembling a toolbox that he saw in a driveway. At the time, Rodriguez was helping a family move from Canby to Salem and hoped to collect scrap metal during the move. Police did not identify the family. The blast was about 75 feet from a house located on a busy street.

$5,000 reward Smith said four to five investigators are working the investigation full-time, including agents with the FBI and ATF, along with Canby detectives. The ATF has offered a $5,000 reward. Smith would not comment on the details of the investigation, but said a forensics team is still examining the blast. Smith would not comment on the type of explosive used or other materials in the bomb, or whether they’ve been identified. Rodriguez’s wife, Miriam Perez, said her eldest daughter understands what happened but that her preschoolage son believes his father returned to Mexico. “It has been very difficult,” Perez said through a translator. “Sometimes they forget what happened and they come back and relive everything.” Perez said she has no family in the area. She will use the money from the fundraiser to pay for rent and utilities. “It would be nice,” she said, “to get an answer.”

Sept. 15, 1918 - Jan. 19, 2012

Maxine Stenkamp died in Springfield, January 13, 2012. She was born in Baker, Montana, on November 22, 1926, and grew up in Mound Township and Rhame, North Dakota. She was the last of eight children born Maxine Harris to Gene Stenkamp and Clara Harris. She was a product of the Great Plains and the Great Depression. She moved to Bend after World War II, where she met Joe Stenkamp at the roller skating rink. They married in 1947, and lived in Bend for over 50 years until his death in 2001. Most of those years were spent in a house on Galveston Ave., where they raised two children, son, Ron and daughter, Sandy. Maxine was a stayat-home mom who took care of her husband and children at all times up until recently. Maxine moved to Springfield after Joe died, to live with Sandy and to be close to Sandy's children and grandchildren. Gran was there to witness and enjoy the kids as they grew and to make sure they knew how to twiddle their thumbs. She died peacefully and gracefully in the presence of many family members and friends. She is survived by two children, one daughterin-law, four grandchildren and their partners, and five great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held in the spring in Bend. Maxine wanted the birds to sing and the sun to shine for those in attendance. If so moved, the family suggests you celebrate Maxine's life of giving by donating to Hospice, Ronald McDonald House, or your favorite charity. Arrangements are under the care of NiswongerReynolds Funeral Home. Please sign the online registry for the family at www.niswonger-reynolds. com

Willard B. Hollenbeck died peacefully on January 19, 2012, in Portland, Oregon at the age of 93. Born on September 15, 1918, on a ranch outside of Pullman, Washington, Willard grew up in The Dalles and LaGrande, Oregon. His parents, Rueben Lawrence Willard B. Hollenbeck Hollenbeck and Nellie May Kamerrer Hollenbeck raised Willard along with his brothers, Carl, Clyde, Robert, and a sister, Faye all of whom have preceded him in death. It was not an April Fool's joke when Willard was drafted to serve in the Army on April 1, 1941. Willard was stationed in The Philippines and fought in WWII, where he received a Bronze Star. Willard was proud of his country and he continued to serve in Active Duty, and retired as a Lt. Colonel in 1974. Upon returning from the war, he married Dorothy Irene Vaught in Pendleton, Oregon, on October 20, 1946. It was in 1950, that Willard and Dorothy moved to Bend. Willard was hired as a ticket agent at Trailways Bus Lines. In 1953, Willard and Dorothy opened Cascades Travel Service with a desk located in the lobby of The Pilot Butte Inn. They were very blessed to be able to travel around the world. Willard also worked for many years at the State Employment Agency. Willard enjoyed volunteering, where he held almost every office, including President, at the Rotary Club of Bend. He also received Rotary's Paul Harris Fellowship Award. He was also a member of the Elks, Eagles and the Employer Support of the Guard Reserve. Willard is survived by his daughter, Linda Cohn (Scott), and two grandsons, Connor and Carson, and many nieces and nephews. His was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy, in 2001. A service is scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. at Deschutes Memorial Gardens in Bend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Deschutes County Historical Society. Deschutes Memorial Chapel is entrusted with the arrangements.

The Associated Press MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK, Wash. — With the weather clearing, a team of 26 rescuers are scouring Mount Rainier for four overdue climbers and campers. Mount Rainier National Park spokeswoman Patti Wold said avalanche conditions have subsided, which allowed the teams to span out to five different spots Saturday.

Wold said a helicopter was on standby at Joint Base Lewis-McChord waiting for flying conditions to improve. Park rangers said the two groups were equipped and hopefully had dug in to wait out the storm, but they could be getting low on supplies. They began their trips nearly 10 days ago. The missing campers are 37-year-old Mark Vucich, of San Diego, and 30-year-old

Michelle Trojanowski, of Atlanta. The climbers were identified Friday as 52-yearold Sork “Erik� Yang, of Springfield, Ore., and Seol Hee Jin, of Korea. Wold said five elite mountaineers spent Friday morning searching but blizzard conditions on the 14,410-foot volcano — including 40-mph winds and zero visibility — forced them back down the mountain for the rest of the day.


ensure and protect our visitors and employees is to have policies keep up with the changes in information about secondhand smoke,� Visiko said. “I think the trend we’re seeing now is creating tobacco-free campuses.� The survey itself asks participants to answer only seven questions ranging from their age to how often they visit county buildings. It also asks participants to weigh in on a complete ban on tobacco use on county property. County staff will present the results of the survey to commissioners by the end of February. Visiko said it’s then up to the commissioners to discuss potential policy changes, though he hopes the results will sell commissioners on the ban. “I have no idea what the commissioners will say about

this or what policy they will adopt,� Visiko said. “But for those that are elected to see the results of a survey saying people want (a smoke-free campus) is another piece of data to use.� Both Bend and Redmond city buildings have smoking bans and operate under state law, which dictates smokers stay 10 feet away from entrances. Representatives of both cities said that rule doesn’t leave many areas on city property where people are allowed to smoke. In 2010, the Bend Park & Recreation District Board banned tobacco use in all parks. Parks managed by Crook County’s Park and Recreation District are also tobacco-free.

School. The district, then, could pass a new bond without increasing the existing burden on taxpayers, Molitor said. The bond would pay for a number of facility improvements in addition to the new Warm Springs school. The facilities committee is weighing the need for driveway and parking lot resurfacing, the installation of new heating and air conditioning systems, and the upgrading of athletics facilities.

Continued from B1 Visiko said a blanket ban would make enforcement easier. The county wants as many members of the public as possible to take its survey by the end of the month. Visitors to Deschutes County’s website can access the survey through a page that expresses the county’s desire “to better understand resident and visitor tobacco and smoke-free preferences,� then describes the dangers of tobacco use and secondhand smoke. It notes, for instance, the number of carcinogenic substances found in secondhand smoke (50) and the estimated cost of tobacco in Deschutes County ($80 million in 2010). “One of the ways we can

School Continued from B1 The district cannot levy property taxes on tribal members. For the bond to pass, other property owners would have to agree to chip in for a new school in Warm Springs. “It’s such a tricky dynamic,� Superintendent Rick Molitor said. The existing Warm Springs school serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade; the new school would be large enough to serve students in grades six through eight as well. Building it would cost about $21 million, and district and tribal leaders have brokered a deal to split the bill equally, meaning a district bond would have to generate $10.5 million. Molitor said the goal is to show the public and taxpayers that both sides — the school district and the tribes — would share the project’s cost. The tribal membership will vote on a $10.5 million tribal

Johnny Otis was ‘godfather of rhythm and blues’ By Terence McArdle The Washington Post

Johnny Otis, an influential bandleader and a ubiquitous presence in rhythm-and-blues music who was credited with discovering singer Etta James and writing such hits as “Willie and the Hand Jive� and “Every Beat of My Heart,� the song that launched Gladys Knight, died Jan. 17 at his home in Altadena, Calif. His manager, Terry Gould, confirmed the death but did not disclose the cause. Otis was 90 and widely promoted as the “godfather of rhythm and blues.� At the dawn of the musical genre in the 1940s, Otis was an iconoclastic figure: a son of Greek immigrants who grew up in a black neighborhood in Northern California and embraced African American culture during a period of strict racial segregation. “As a kid, I decided that if our society dictated that one had to be black or white, I would

FEATURED OBITUARY be black,� he wrote in “Listen to the Lambs,� a 1968 book penned in reaction to the earlier Watts race riots in Los Angeles. The title was taken from a black spiritual. The book is a meditation on politics. In a career spanning more than six decades, he was a drummer, vibraphonist, club owner, disc jockey, record label owner and talent scout. He first made an impression in show business as a bandleader, notably with his 1945 hit recording of Earle Hagen’s jazz standard “Harlem Nocturne.� After further entries on the Billboard R&B charts, his 1958 recording of his own composition, “Willie and the Hand Jive,� sold more than 1 million copies; it was later covered by guitarist Eric Clapton. Another Otis composition, “Every Beat of My Heart� became a best-sell-

ing record in 1961 for Gladys Knight and the Pips. The Otis band, with Otis on drums, backed Big Mama Thornton on her original version of “Hound Dog� (1952), later a signature song for Elvis Presley. In 1994, Otis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “Over the years he has exhibited an uncanny ear for talent, and by bringing that talent to the fore has served to advance the growth and development of rhythm & blues,� his citation read. Johnny Alexander Veliotes was born Dec. 28, 1921, in Vallejo, Calif. Survivors include his wife of 70 years, the former Phyllis Walker; and seven children. His son, Shuggie, played guitar in the Otis band and recorded several albums under his own name. Otis began his career at 18 drumming with a juke joint pianist near his home. In his 20s, he went to Los Angeles to drum with Harlan Leonard’s

Kansas City Rockets, a popular draw on Central Avenue, the city’s black entertainment strip, and recorded with jazz saxophonist Lester Young. When a chain saw accident impaired his right hand and limited his drumming, Otis took up vibraphone. In part because it was too expensive to support a large band, Otis started a “jump combo� in the late 1940s. This group, usually with fewer than 10 musicians, focused on the blues and boogie-woogie. By the next decade, the band had evolved into the Rhythm ’n’ Blues Caravan, a touring revue. Several of its singers were discovered at talent shows sponsored by Otis’ Barrelhouse Club in Watts. Performers discovered at the Barrelhouse included James; jazz vocalist Esther Phillips, who first recorded with Otis as a 13-year-old blues singer; Little Esther; and the vocal group the Robins, which evolved into the Coasters.

Long rides to school Tribal students in grades six through 12 currently attend district schools outside the reservation, which can require a commute of 90 minutes in each direction. “We all like to have our schools be close to our backyards,� Molitor said. Ross said a new school is needed not only to reduce travel time but to create an adequate building for the community. “Many of our young parents and students are pretty excited about a new school in their community,� she said. About 35 percent of the district’s 2,800-student population is Native American. Molitor said the timing is good because the district is on track to retire a $15.8 million bond in 2013 that paid for Jefferson County Middle

Decision possible Jan. 30 All told, the range of needs and possible improvements for a bond, including the school, is $15 million to $27 million. The board could make a decision Jan. 30 or decide later whether to put a bond proposal out to voters, Molitor said. If a bond is pursued, it could go to voters as soon as this May. Other possible dates include this November or May 2013, Molitor said. — Reporter: 541-977-7185



Felix Adamo / Bakersfield Californian

Danielle Mailloux fights back tears as her grandmother Kaaren Shatswell, right, addresses the court during sentencing in Bakersfield, Calif., on Jan. 17. Mailloux’s attorney says she was suffering from postpartum depression when she attacked her baby last May. Police say Mailloux was under the influence of methamphetamine at the time.

Horror no surprise in the U.S. meth capital • Pure ‘poor man’s cocaine’ blamed in wave of domestic slayings By Tracie Cone and Gosia Wozniacka The Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. — When a 23-year-old Fresno woman fatally shot her two toddlers and a cousin, critically wounded her husband and then turned the gun on herself last Sunday, investigators immediately suspected methamphetamine abuse in what otherwise was inexplicable carnage. It turned out the mother had videotaped herself smoking meth hours before the shooting. In family photos, the children are adorable, the mother pretty. They lived in a large apartment complex near a freeway with neatly clipped lawns and mature trees. The father was recently laid off from a packinghouse job. “When you get this type of tragedy, it’s not a surprise that drugs were involved,” said Lt. Mark Salazar, the Fresno Police Department’s homicide commander. “Meth has been a factor in other violent crimes.” A Bakersfield mother was sentenced Tuesday for stabbing her newborn while in a meth rage. An Oklahoma woman drowned her baby in a washing machine in November. A New Mexico woman claiming to be God stabbed her son with a screwdriver last month, saying, “God wants him dead.”

‘Completely bonkers’ “Once people who are on meth become psychotic, they are very dangerous,” said Dr. Alex Stalcup, who treated Haight Ashbury heroin users in the 1960s and now researches meth and works with addicts in the San Francisco Bay Area suburbs. “They’re completely bonkers; they’re nuts. We’re talking about very extreme alterations of normal brain function. Once someone becomes triggered to violence, there aren’t any limits or boundaries.” The Central Valley of California is a hub of the nation’s methamphetamine distribution network, making extremely pure forms of the drug easily available locally. And law enforcement officials say widespread meth abuse is believed to be driving much of the crime in the vast farming region. Chronic use of the harsh chemical compound known as speed or crank can lead to psychosis, which includes hearing voices and experiencing hallucinations. The stimulant effect of meth is up to 50 times longer than cocaine, experts say, so users stay awake for days on end, impairing cognitive function and contributing to extreme paranoia. “Your children and your spouse become your worst enemy, and you truly believe they are after you,” said Bob Pennal, a recently retired meth investigator from the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement. Methamphetamine origi-

dicts steal any metal they can resell — agricultural plumbing, copper wiring, lawn sprinklers. “We lose five to 10 manhole covers a week,” said Ceres Police Chief Art de Werk, who said a woman was injured recently when she fell into an unprotected drain in a shopping center. “Meth is the poor man’s drug, and frankly, the Central Valley is an impoverished geographic area.”

Evolving chemistry nally took root in California’s agricultural heartland in the late 1980s and early 1990s as a poor man’s cocaine. Its use initially creates feelings of euphoria and invincibility, but experts say repeated abuse can alter brain chemistry and sometimes cause schizophrenia-like behavior. Meth’s availability and its potential for abuse combine to create the biggest drug threat in the Central Valley, according to a new report from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Drug Intelligence Center. From 2009 to 2010 methamphetamine busts in the Central Valley more than tripled to 1,094 kilograms, or more than 2,400 pounds, the report says. Large tracts of farmland with isolated outbuildings are an ideal place to avoid detection, which is why the region is home to nearly all of the nation’s “super labs,” controlled by Mexican drug trafficking organizations, said John Donnelly, resident agent in charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration office in Fresno. “They have the potential to make 150 pounds per cook,” he said. “There are more super labs in California than anywhere else. Every week another office calls us — St. Paul, Dayton, Kansas, Texas — and says, ‘We’ve got a meth case here’ and they say the suspects are from Turlock or Visalia. We’re slinging it all over the country from here.” Last month, a drug task force working in four central California counties busted 24 alleged members of the Mexican drug cartel La Familia Michoacana with 14 pounds of powdered meth, 30 gallons of meth solution, 17 guns, $110,000 in cash and a fleet of vehicles with sophisticated hidden compartments for smuggling. Most law enforcement agencies don’t keep statistics on how many homicides, burglaries and thefts are meth-related, but those responding to the National Drug Intelligence Center’s 2011 survey said the drug is the top contributor to violent crimes and thefts. “It drives more crime than other drugs do. Meth is in its own category, because it’s so much more addictive than other drugs,” said Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims. Across the valley, meth ad-

Authorities say the science involved in creating the chemical compound continues to evolve, including an easier recipe called “Shake and Bake” that is available on the Internet. Last month, an Oklahoma woman was arrested as she walked around a Walmart store — for six hours before she was noticed — mixing ingredients for Shake and Bake. In one of the recent attacks by meth users, Aubrey Ragina Mailloux received a ninemonth sentence in Bakersfield on Tuesday for stabbing her 6-week-old infant in the back and cutting her along her abdomen, jaw and neck during a binge. The baby survived. “It’s not illegal because we don’t want people to feel better. It’s illegal because it makes good people do crazy things,” said Mailloux’s defense attorney, Mark Anthony Raimondo. In Oklahoma, authorities charged Lyndsey Fiddler with second-degree manslaughter after an aunt found her infant daughter in a washing machine thudding off balance in the spin cycle. The aunt told authorities that Fiddler had been up for three days using meth. In Albuquerque, N.M., last month Liehsa Henderson, high on meth, claimed to be God and told police God wanted her son to die after allegedly stabbing him in the neck with a screwdriver. The boy survived. Last Sunday, Fresno police found Aide Mendez dead on the bathroom floor of her home. Her children — 17month-old Aliyah Echevarria and Isaiah Echevarria, 3 — were in the bathtub. Mendez’s cousin was dead in the kitchen. She had shot each in the head. The children’s father remains hospitalized with stabbing and gunshot wounds. Police recovered 10 grams of meth, $8,000 and scales — and the iPad the young mother used to videotape herself smoking meth. “If she had been on it for any length of time, well, it deteriorates your brain and central nervous system,” said Sue Webber-Brown, a former DA investigator in Butte County who now advocates nationally for children in drug cases. “If you are already depressed or feel like a loser mom and you don’t have a support system and there is no hope, the meth just fuels that.”

Surfers prepare their boards for a dash into the bay just south of the historic Santa Monica Pier. Duke Kahanamoku, an Olympic swimming gold medalist from Hawaii, helped spread the popularity of surfing to California when he taught the sport in Santa Monica in 1912.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. — “And all the

stars (who never were) are parking cars and pumping gas ....” Pie-eyed idealists are nothing new in


Southern California. For nearly 100 years, the promise of fame and fortune has lured young people to the land of sunny skies and palm trees in hopes of being “discovered”

In 1996, with area schools facing steep budget cuts, a group of concerned Sisters residents launched the Sisters Schools Foundation with the aim of preserving school programs. The following year, the foundation held its first fundraiser: Sisters Starry Nights. The concert series would become the primary funding source for the foundation, bringing to town name performers — Vince Gill, Keb’ Mo’, Amy Grant, Lyle Lovett, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and John Hiatt, to name a few — who donated their time to help fund, through concert ticket sales, equipment, programs and more at Sisters schools. Submitted photo Now, series founders and co- Susan Arends, left, and chairs Jeri Fouts Jeri Fouts are the foundand Susan Arends ing co-chairs of Sisters have announced a Starry Nights, a 15milestone for Sis- year-old concert series ters Starry Nights: that raises funds for the $1 million in net nonprofit Sisters Schools proceeds raised Foundation. over the past 15 years. Back when the series began, “We were just hoping to raise $20,000 or something. That was just short-term,” Fouts said. “I don’t think we could have imagined what was to come, and all of the different people that would somehow make their way to Sisters.” In fact, said Arends, her two children were just “babies” in those days, not yet in the school system. “Now they’re both at the University of Oregon,” she said. “It’s been that long.” Growing up with a mother who handled hospitality for artists who played the series, Arends’ kids grew used to service.

Winter ice dunes on Lake Erie are otherworldly

have succeeded,

Don’t climb the ice dunes, warn the rangers and the signs. Yet danger seemed remote as I scanned the serene frosted landscape near the entrance to Presque Isle State Park, a seven-mile spit of land arching into Lake Erie from Pennsylvania’s far northwest corner. Nevertheless, locals share tales of daredevils who’ve attempted ice dune ascents only to crash through and break an arm or a leg on ice jags, or succumb to hypothermia, or risk drowning in a frosted tomb. Then there was the woman stuck on a dune that broke free and drifted away from the shore.

Developed at the start of the 20th century by millionaire businessman Abbot Kinney, the canal system that earned Venice its Italianesque name was created from a seaside marsh. Only about two miles of canals remain, just north of Marina del Rey.

A surfer slices through a threefoot curl in Santa Monica Bay, just offshore from beach volleyball courts and a body-building stadium. On any given day when the surf is up, dozens of surfers may be seen challenging the waves near the Santa Monica Pier.

A  & A  

Drive-through etiquette can lead to a smooth ride Dear Abby: I hope you can help me pass along some tips on drive-through etiquette to your readers. I work in the fast-food industry, and on behalf of my fellow workers, may I dish out the following: Please have a general idea of what you’d like BEFORE you reach the speaker. The corporate office has us on a timer, which starts ticking as soon as you pull up. Please be patient. We know you’re tired of waiting behind the car ahead of you, but we’re trying our best to make sure you get quality food. If you have a large order or a special request, please come inside to order if possible. The people in the car behind you are waiting for their food, too. Speak clearly (but don’t yell!) into the speaker. Also, although it may seem cute to you, I can barely understand your 4-year-old when she asks me for her kiddie meal. If you can’t hear yourself over your car radio, I can’t either. But if you’re talking on your cellphone or to someone in your vehicle, I CAN hear you — and I’ve heard some wild stuff. If it’s raining, please turn off your windshield wipers before you reach my window. Otherwise, I get splashed. Finally, PLEASE treat me with respect! Yes, I know I “only� work the drive-through at your local burger joint, but you want that burger, don’t you? — Working the Window in Georgia Dear Working the Window: I hope your letter will be taken to heart because it deserves to be. Personnel in the food service business often must deal with customers who are less than at their best — people who are stressed, hungry and more — but that’s no excuse to treat the server rudely. Your suggestions are good ones, to which I would add that “please� and “thank you� are always appreciated. Now, may I please have a

DEAR ABBY double with extra-crispy fries? Thank you. Dear Abby: I am a single mom raising two kids. I work and also attend college full time. Every day we hear so many stories about what’s wrong with the world, it makes it difficult to appreciate the good in society. Sometimes it’s hard for me to make my paycheck stretch throughout the entire week. The other day, I was at the store and had just enough money between my bank card, my cash and loose change to buy a small bottle of laundry detergent. Well, my bank card was declined. Abby, I was mortified. Near tears, I told the cashier to go ahead and cancel my purchase. Just then, the woman behind me set some money on the register to cover it. I thanked her. This woman, a complete stranger, helped to pick up the slack for someone she may never see again. How many people would do that? I’d like to think it’s karma for my having helped others in the past. You never know when an angel is in your presence — yet one was standing behind me in a checkout line. — Touched in Oklahoma Dear Touched: I’m glad you wrote because it gives me a chance to remind folks that while bad events do occur, they do not overshadow the good ones. There are millions of caring and generous people in this country and one of them was the woman who helped you. It’s very possible that someone helped her in a similar situation. Good deeds are like pebbles thrown into a pond. The ripples can spread far beyond the original “splash.� — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you want to be more authentic, yet you get twisted up in language like “I should� or “someone expects.� By getting to know the real you, people will be more at peace with interactions. If you are single, different types of people will appeal to you. Try to avoid commitments this year. If attached, the two of you play many games. Take your interactions with a grain of salt, and continue to express your caring. AQUARIUS could be a soul mate. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH A partner could be far more out of sorts than you might realize. Be sensitive to his or her comments. Remain responsive, as the alternative is no fun for either of you. Make plans for later in the day with friends. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday? TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Keep reaching out for someone new. The dialogue could be interesting, as you are two very different people from equally different backgrounds. Make plans, if possible. You will gain much insight from this bond. Tonight: Up to the wee hours. You choose the activity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Relate to a partner or special friend. Make plans for the two of you. Even friendships need quality time. You could get flak from a loved one without intending to. Everyone wants time with you, so it seems! Tonight: Your imagination could take you on quite an adventure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Relate directly to a partner. This person will feel more valued, allowing more openness. You will discover that this is true, even if you have related to this person for many years. Tonight: Let the warmth in! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You might have plans to indulge in a favorite pastime. You might think your ideas are great, but someone who would like to join you doesn’t agree. You might be surprised by what he or she would like to do. Postpone your plans if this person’s ideas are more appealing. Tonight: Who said you need to be in bed early?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You could be taken aback by all that is going on. Why not toss yourself into the immediate activity? Fun often results from spontaneity. Whether learning a new hobby or simply being silly with a dear friend, you have a great time. Tonight: Slowly unwind. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You could be far more tuned in to what is happening around you than you share. You have keen powers of observation. Ask yourself how you feel about all the goings-on. Why not toss yourself into the mix? Tonight: Be proactive and create what you want. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH You might want to approach a situation differently. A discussion reveals a lack of sensitivity on one person’s part. He or she might not have intended to hurt someone’s feelings. Rather than internalize, clear out a misunderstanding. Tonight: Invite family over. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Be aware of what is not working in your life. You alone are in a position to turn it around. Tap into a deeply fertile imagination, loosening up any restrictions. Welcome the unexpected, as it might help a child or loved one to become more authentic. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Use the daylight hours to the max. Express your vitality and enthusiasm. A parent or someone you look up to might be slightly negative. Do not take on what is not yours. Let go of others’ judgments and just be you. Tonight: Make it your treat. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Maintain the low profile you desire. Whatever is occupying your mind is very important. Give yourself some space. Others would prefer to get together when you are more present. Make plans fluid. Tonight: The sign of friendship is finally ready to socialize. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Go where people are. You will feel most comfortable around crowds, friends and a happening of some sort. Remember, you could just get together with someone for a late lunch. Use caution with finances. The unexpected could strike your wallet! Count your change. Tonight: R and R.

Beach Continued from C1 On Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, a pedestrian mall where I once was thrown into a blind audition for a television commercial (I failed), salsa dancers performed a flash routine beneath giant theater marquees advertising “War Horse” and “The Descendants.” South of the storied Santa Monica Pier, whose Ferris wheel and roller coaster are visible for miles up and down the Pacific Coast, surfers sliced through 3and 4-foot waves that curled toward the broad sandy beach. In the Ocean Park neighborhood, where I once played in an informal Sunday roller hockey league, weekend warriors continued to do battle with large sticks and a very small ball, much to the amusement of tanned athletes at nearby beach volleyball courts. And on Venice Beach, two muscular men spotted one another as they practiced the iron cross position on the still rings. “I can pick up any girl on the beach and show her the best time she’s ever had,” I overhead one boasting to the other. “And as soon as I sell my script, I’ll be able to take her wherever she wants to go.”

A bit of history When visitors to the Los Angeles metropolis think of beaches, they typically think first of Santa Monica and Venice. Located about 13 miles west of downtown L.A. and five to eight miles north of the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the communities grew

purchased and developed the unincorporated south end of the former rancho property at the start of the 20th century.

Dance clubs and amusement parks were built atop a series of wooden piers that extended as much as a quarter-mile into the surf. Within a few years, however, fire had claimed all but one. Today the Santa Monica Pier, built in 1909, is the lone survivor, and its original Looff carousel is a national historic landmark. Aviation pioneer Donald Douglas founded his Douglas Aircraft Company (later McDonnell Douglas) at the Santa Monica Airport in 1922, and the first around-the-world flight started and ended here in 1924. Until 1968, the company maintained a presence here; today, its legacy is perpetuated at the impressive Museum of Flying, which will reopen this spring after a major renovation. Today the population of Santa Monica is about 90,000. Another 40,000 live in Venice, considered a neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Exploring Venice Beach There’s no more rapid way to immerse yourself in the spirit of the California beaches than to meander down Ocean Front Walk, also known as the Venice Beach Boardwalk. This byway, free of motorized traffic, is paved from Santa Monica through Venice and all the way to Marina del Rey, a distance of about four miles. It hasn’t been an actual “board” walk for a very long time. But you don’t necessarily have to walk. Vendors at several locations offer rental bicycles and inline skates at rates that, earlier this month, began at $7 for one hour, $10 for two hours, and $20 for all day. As you wander south,

condominium dwellings are eclipsed by colorful shops on your left. On your right, a long row of street vendors lend a flea-market ambiance. Behind them, closer to the beach, a broad, sandy strand extends to the Pacific surf. The beach is interrupted in numerous places by concrete recreational facilities: a skate park, basketball and handball courts, a body-building stadium, paddle-tennis courts and a children’s playground. There are public showers and changing facilities here as well. Remember, this is not far from Hollywood. The skate park starred in “Lords of Dogtown.” The basketball courts were a centerpiece of “White Men Can’t Jump.” And ac-

tor-turned-politician Arnold Schwarzenegger trained in the 1970s in the Muscle Beach body-building stadium at the end of 18th Street. Activity along the Boardwalk is forever changing, but you may encounter some of the same people I did on my recent visit. Mimes, jugglers and rock bands, most of them very talented, compete for applause and tips. You may see artist Jean-Joseph Monfort, a colorful Haitian immigrant who paints magical canvases as passers-by watch in awe. You may encounter musicians on skates, like 60year-old guitarist Harry Perry, a turbaned American Sikh who has been a fixture on the Boardwalk since 1973. Continued next page

From previous page You might be inclined to check out the Freak Show, a carnival sideshow-style attraction with living two-headed reptiles and formaldehyde-preserved two-headed mammals. But the best “freak show” is on the Boardwalk itself, with its break dancers and extemporaneous rap poets. You’ll find vendors selling beachwear and hula hoops, toe rings and hair extensions, temporary henna tattoos and permanent body piercings. You’ll find fortune tellers and festively painted Day of the Dead skulls, sage smudges and snow globes, wildly irreverent T-shirts and your name on a grain of rice. You may note the sickly sweet smell of marijuana emanating from Rastafarian-run street stalls, even as you stop to eat at Figtree’s or the Sidewalk Cafe. And you’ll see models and mannequins dressed headto-toe in green, urging you to pay $40 to consult with a “doctor” who might be inclined to prescribe a medical marijuana card. Several of these “offices” face the Boardwalk. For more upscale and less odiferous dining and shopping, look a few blocks inland, to Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Once a neglected avenue, it has been spruced up in the past couple of decades, and now is home to fine boutiques and a growing “restaurant row.” I enjoyed a moderately priced lunch at Hal’s Bar and Grill, one of the longer established eating spots. Only about two miles of the original canal system remain; they are mainly across Washington Avenue from Abbot Kinney Boulevard, nearer to the pleasure-craft metropolis of Marina del Rey.

The Pier and the Prom When I think of Santa Monica, I think of the three P’s — the Pier, the Prom and the Palisades. The wooden Santa Monica Pier extends about 1,000 feet into the Pacific at the seaward end of Colorado Avenue. It comprises two adjacent structures, a 1909 Municipal Pier and a 1916 Pleasure Pier — the latter designed by Charles Looff, the architect of New York’s Coney Island, who became even better known for his carousels, now considered the epitome of that craft. An antique Looff carousel is one of the Pier’s big attractions today. Restored in the early 1980s, the 9½-acre Pier now boasts a small amusement park (Pacific Park) with a dozen rides, including a 130-foot-high, solar-powered Ferris wheel and a steel roller coaster that travels above the waves at 35 mph. There are also arcades and curio shops, food stands and full-service restaurants, fishing decks and an aquarium, and Heal the Bay’s Marine Science Center, which doubles as an educational facility for students of all ages. The Prom is the Third Street Promenade, three broad pedestrian blocks extending from Wilshire Boulevard across Arizona Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard to Broadway. Lining the Prom are several first-run movie complexes, high-end art galleries and fashionable cafes and boutiques. At its south end, between Broadway and Colorado Avenue and just two blocks from the Pier, is Santa Monica Place, an innovative 1979 shopping center (anchored by Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s)

Bright colors and flamboyant design bring attention to buildings along Ocean Front Walk in Venice. Paved for more than four miles from Santa Monica to Marina del Rey, the so-called Venice Beach Boardwalk is lined by shops on one side, street vendors on the other.

A theater marquee rises above the Third Street Promenade in downtown Santa Monica. The three-block-long pedestrian mall — lined with movie complexes, art galleries, boutiques and fashionable cafes — stretches from Wilshire Boulevard south to Broadway.

that was a midcareer work of trendsetting architect Frank O. Gehry. Many of the city’s finest hotels stretch along Ocean Avenue from Montana Avenue south past the Pier. North of Colorado Avenue, they overlook the Palisades, a long bluff above the Pacific Coast Highway and Santa Monica Beach. Lush Palisades Park, which extends along the seaward side of Ocean Avenue, is a favorite place from which to watch the sunset. Other locations in Santa Monica are worth a look for visitors with a little more time. Montana Avenue, four blocks west of Wilshire, is an upscale shopping and dining district that extends 10 blocks east from Seventh Street. The Bergamot Station Art Center, in a former trolley depot on Olympic Boulevard at 26th Street, is a center for contemporary art, film and design that incorporates the cutting-edge Santa Monica Museum of Art. On Main Street south of Pico Boulevard, extending toward Venice, a mile-long shopping district is highlighted by Edgemar Plaza (2435 Main St.), a multi-use 1989 Gehry creation of skewed geometric forms and such contrasting design elements as stucco and galvanized steel. As if to underscore architectural diversity, the nearby California Heritage Museum has a home in a restored 1894 Queen Anne manse. Single-topic temporary exhibits change every six to eight months; a current display on the short-board revolution in surf design, highlighting the period from 1967 to 1984, is scheduled to run until April 22.

Lodging and dining Santa Monica, in particular, has scores of great hotels and restaurants. When my budget allows, I’m

partial to Shutters on the Beach. A luxury hotel with a relaxed Cape Cod appeal, Shutters has a beachside location that most Southern California hotels can only imagine. A full-service spa, a fitness center with a staff of celebrity personal trainers, and two outstanding restaurants add to its allure. Only a couple of blocks away, the Viceroy Santa Monica is the flagship hotel of a small chain of luxury hotels. It may not be

on the beach — the sand is a couple of blocks away — but the poolside cabanas make it seem otherwise. And it has a great restaurant, Whist, whose chef de cuisine, Chris Crary, was a top-10 contender in the current season of “Top Chef” on the Bravo network. I also like Casa del Mar, which was an Italian Renaissance-style beach club when it opened in 1926, and the Shore Hotel, an eco-friendly property that opened three months ago facing Palisades Park on Ocean Avenue. Among less pricey options, the Hotel California has a sort of old-time charm, while Su Casa at Venice Beach has fully furnished suites overlooking the zany Boardwalk scene. And serious dollar watchers might opt for the international youth hostel in downtown Santa Monica. As local restaurants go, I’m a longtime fan of El Cholo, a standby for solid Mexican cuisine. But after my most recent visit, I’ve added two new favorites to my list. Owners of The Misfit say they adopted their name because their food didn’t seem to fall easily into any par-

ticular category; the tapas-style menu ranges from chickpea wraps to Dixie-fried chicken. The Hostaria del Piccolo, meanwhile, is Italian, but not typical Italian; never have I eaten better grilled octopus than was served here, and the roasted wild-boar sausage is wonderful. Many of the popular bars also have modestly priced menus — places like Chez Jay,

a 52-year-old celebrity dive; Harvelle’s, a jazz and blues club since 1931; and Ye Olde King’s Head, which always seems to have an international soccer match broadcast. The night before I left town, I stopped into the Cabo Cantina on the Promenade and found a seat at the bar next to a pretty blond woman. She told me she was a pop singer and songwriter under the name “Harleqwin Damsel,” but when I asked where I might see her in concert, she told me she was not yet performing live. Ah, yes, I thought to myself: Here is another idealist with her head in the clouds. But, do you know what? The Damsel is for real. Her catchy techno-pop tune “Status That — the FB Song” is a YouTube phenomenon. Her album is scheduled for a spring release. She appears in a couple of television commercials. She is, as they say, on her way. And she won’t be looking for a way back to San Jose. — Reporter: janderson@ Private, vintage, ocean front getaway Newport, OR 1-800-755-5674

MINNEAPOLIS — Emma Rosen is soon to become Emma Sugerman. Rosen, 25, who works in health care marketing, will legally take the last name of her husband-to-be, medical student Noah Sugerman, when the two marry this summer. Most married women in America have always chosen to legally assume their grooms’ last names. But at the end of the 20th century, more women retained their maiden names as a way of retaining individual identity. A widely noted Harvard study of college-educated women found that between 2 percent and 4 percent in 1975 kept their names. Those

numbers sharply increased through the 1970s and 1980s before declining in the 1990s to just below 20 percent in 2001. While it’s more socially acceptable than ever for brides to keep their surnames, fewer are, according to wedding planners and other observers. Of nearly 19,000 women surveyed by the wedding site last spring, 86 percent took their husbands’ names. “It’s something to think about, but I’ve always known I would take Noah’s name,â€? Rosen said. “For me it’s just practical. My career is very important to me, but I’ve only been in the working world four years. ‌ If it were five or 10 years from now I was getting married, it might be a different discussion.â€?

Lake Erie Continued from C1 In the 2007-11 “Politics of Snow” series, Philadelphia artist Diane Burko’s oil paintings of Alaskan glaciers and other geological formations reveal clues to accelerated, potentially cataclysmic ice melt. Having observed many of these natural wonders since the 1970s, Burko explains in an artist’s statement: “I now perceive the beauty and majesty of this landscape differently. I have lost my innocence.” She uses beauty to draw eyes, then grip minds. Another new show, “Lake Effect Lace,” features snowflake images taken by Carol Posch Comstock through a microscope in near-zero-degree conditions. Given their intricacy, it’s no surprise that this local artist also designs labyrinths. Other exhibits shake off the chill. One gallery features Ruth E. Newton’s watercolors of chubby, charming mischiefmaking animals. Newton, born in Erie in 1884, illustrated children’s books, including a 1938 edition of Beatrix Potter’s “The Tale of Peter Rabbit.” Also heartwarming: 120 songbirds carved by Ulysses Reynolds, a local farmer. To work up a vicarious sweat, have a look at Marion Sanford’s 1941 bronzes of brawny, butter-churning, clothes-washing femmes.

Starry Continued from C1 “Even when they were home from college for the last show here, they were once again, both of them, picking up water and delivering cases of this and that … any of the numerous crazy things that it takes to put on an event,” she said. “And they take great pride in it as well.” Such attitudes reflect the community’s high regard for education, said Fouts. “It’s really the essence of a small town and the value that it places on children and schools,” she said. “When you’re in a small town like Sisters, the schools are truly the heart of the community.” Starry Nights is run entirely by volunteers, who, like the artists, donate their time and efforts. That includes the students who benefit most directly from its financial impact. “One of the best things that happens at Starry Nights is getting to have the students participate on any number of levels, whether it be ushering or selling concessions or being an emcee at the show,” Fouts said. At the most recent Starry Nights event — a Dec. 17 Christmas concert by Gary Morris that carried it across the $1 million threshold — the high school jazz choir sang Christmas carols in the lobby. Music students also audition for the honor of performing on stage with visiting artists. “That’s so meaningful,” Fouts said, “this experience that these kids are getting to have.” In such ways, the benefits of Sisters Starry Nights go beyond the financial, said Sisters School District Superintendant Jim Golden. “Over these many years, we’ve been able to have our kids engage with professional musicians and entertainers and perform with them,” he said. “Authentic performances with world-class musicians

are rare to come by.” And, of course, there’s all the great stuff. “What I mean by ‘stuff’ is things like learning tools, computers, musical instruments, field trips,” Golden said. Thanks to funds raised by Starry Nights, he added, almost every classroom in Sisters now has a SMART Board, an interactive computer whiteboard. “Because of this, in arts and music and sports and all areas of our educational system, we’ve been able to supplement what the school district wouldn’t have been able to. That has greatly enriched our classroom experience for kids and given teachers tools that they’ve wanted,” Golden said. With Sisters possibly facing a fourth straight year of budget cuts, he added, it’s clear there’s a continued need for Starry Nights. When it comes to the future of the series, said Arends, “We have some great new committee members with great energy. And I think that’s what it’s going to take, is for newer members of the community and maybe some with younger kids involved to step up and raise their hand and say, ‘Hey, we want to continue this, and we want to help.’ “So many of us that started this 15 years ago, our kids

New Girl Scout badges recognize finance, tech ATLANTA — As a Girl Scout, Sandra Kennedy wants to create a comic book, finance her dreams and explore the science of happiness. Luckily, there are badges for that now. Girl Scouts USA recently unveiled 136 new badges, giving Scouts a new look — and new direction — in the year of its 100th anniversary. Designed to arm girls with modern-day skills, the insignias include everything from Digital Photography and Science of Style to Social Innovator. Sandra, who is 12, joins more than 2 million girls across the country on a quest to amass new talents — and new badges. “I like them a whole lot,” said

Sandra who lives in Roswell, near Atlanta. “I think they are very interesting, and I think it will motivate me.” Many Scouts are in the process of earning the new badges. Still, you may begin to see some of them as Girl Scouts canvass neighborhoods selling cookies. The annual cookie season kicked off earlier this month and continues through March. Beth Messer, director of Girl Leadership Experience with the Atlanta region, said the new badges are designed to reflect girls’ evolving interests and the importance of technology and finance in today’s culture. A major update was also long overdue, she said. The last time the badges were overhauled was 1987.

have moved on,” she said. “We’ve been doing it a long time. If this is going to continue, we really do need that extra enthusiasm.” The first 15 years would not have been so successful without the efforts of Fouts, Arends and a cadre of dedicated volunteers, Golden said. “It’s just been phenomenal. They’ve done it time and time again, behind the scenes, for free,” he said. “The one thing I’d love to get across is how appreciative I am, and how proud I am, to be associated with a community that values education to the point of dedicating the incredible amount of time that it’s taken to do this. Not one penny was paid to anybody. That’s the amazing thing. Everybody did this for free.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,

A pair of classic matchups for Super Bowl spots

Paterno in serious condition STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Joe Paterno’s doctors say the former Penn State coach’s condition has become “serious” after he experienced complications from lung cancer in recent days. The winningest major college football coach of all time, Paterno was diagnosed shortly after Penn State’s Board of Trustees ousted him Nov. 9 in the aftermath of the child sex abuse charges against former assistant Jerry Sandusky. Paterno has been getting treatment since, and his health problems were worsened when he broke his pelvis — an injury that first cropped up when he was accidentally hit in preseason practice last year. “Over the last few days Joe Paterno has experienced further health complications,” family spokesman Dan McGinn said in a brief statement Saturday to The Associated Press. “His doctors have now characterized his status as serious. “His family will have no comment on the situation and asks that their privacy be respected during this difficult time,” he said. Paterno’s sons Scott and Jay both took to Twitter Saturday night to refute reports that their father had died. Wrote Jay Paterno: “I appreciate the support (and) prayers. Joe is continuing to fight.” The 85-year-old Paterno has been in the hospital since Jan. 13 for observation for what his family had called minor complications from his cancer treatments. Not long before that, he conducted his only interview since losing his job, with The Washington Post. The second half of the two-day interview was conducted by his bedside. — The Associated Press

Mountain View wins at Hoodoo Bulletin staff report HOODOO — Mountain View posted boys and girls nordic ski wins Saturday at the Hoodoo Classic as both Cougar teams won the second Oregon Interscholastic Ski Racing Association nordic race of the season. Mountain View’s boys program scored 19 points to beat runner-up South Eugene (33 points) and third-place Sisters (46), while the Cougar girls tied Sisters with 33 points, but claimed top honors on a tiebreaker. (The tiebreaker in team standings is the No. 4 skier for each team but Sisters did not field a fourth skier, giving the Cougars the win.) South Eugene’s Trevor Merrifield won the boys 5,500-meter classic race in 21 minutes and 39 seconds, with Sisters skier Mason Calmettes finishing as the runnerup in 22:43. Imran Wolfenden (third place, 22:52), McKenna Hand (fourth, 23:04) and Sam King (sixth, 23:27) paced the Mountain View boys. The Cougars also won the boys 750-meter relay race, turning in a time of 8:37, easily besting second-place South Eugene (9:37). On the same course in the girls individual classic race, Cougar senior Hayati Wolfenden took first in 24:38, while Sisters skiers Amity Calvin (second, 24:45) and Courtney Blust (fifth, 28:38) also posted top-five finishes. The Outlaws won the girls relay in 10:33, holding off

o complaining about these championship matchups: prolific offense vs. stingy defense, or old foes renewing a storied rivalry. Whichever suits your preference, the NFL has it this weekend. When the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens today for the AFC title, four players who have come to represent the highest levels of achievement will be on each side of the ball. Tom Brady, seeking a fifth start in a Super Bowl, and Wes Welker on New England’s offense, Ray Lewis and Ed Reed on Baltimore’s defense. How juicy. “They’ve got a lot of guys over there that are very explosive,” said Reed, the Ravens’ star safety. “Obviously, they score a lot of points, and we’ve all seen that. It’s going to be an all-day affair for our defense.” The other championship affair today is at Candlestick Park, where the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers have played some memorable games, regular season and postseason. Despite the geographic separa-

PREP SWIMMING by 23 points. “Our depth really showed,” Madras coach Bobby DeRoest said about his boys team. “We had two swimmers in almost every event in the finals.” Summit finished second in the boys team standings with 76 points, and was followed by Mountain View (65 points), Bend High (49), Gladstone (15) and Molalla (13). Leading the Buffs was Ian Goodwin, who won the 500meter freestyle and placed second in the 200 individual

medley. Jordan Gemelas added a first-place finish in the 100 breaststroke for Madras. Jennifer Robeson led the Bend High girls with a win in the 500 freestyle. The Lava Bears also took first in the 400 freestyle relay. Summit’s Mackenzie Halligan won the 100 freestyle and 100 breaststroke for the Storm, whose team also won the 200 freestyle relay. Madras, Bend and Mountain View will all compete again in the Bend City Meet on Friday at Juniper Swim & Fitness Center.

MELBOURNE, Australia — It was a time-warp Saturday for Serena Williams at the Australian Open as she crushed the suspense out of a third-round match in Rod Laver Arena against an intimidated opponent and fielded questions in the interview room about her extracurricular activities: fashion, studies and even that old standard, acting. “I actually have a gig in a week or two,” she said. “I’m excited about it.” Despite the familiar setting and subjects, much has changed for Williams as she embarks on her latest tennis season down under. She is now 30: the same age as one of her measuring sticks, Roger Federer, although she was not prepared to concede the years at first.

Inside • Coverage of the Australian Open, D4

“I’ll be 26 instead,” she said in an interview later. After her health scares and on-court disappointments in 2011, she no longer holds any Grand Slam singles titles. The last of her 13 titles came at Wimbledon in 2010. She clearly recommitted herself to the chase in the offseason, however. She arrived in Australia trimmer and fitter than usual after changing her diet in the offseason, partly to show solidarity for her older sister Venus Williams, who is battling the anti-immune disorder Sjogren’s syndrome and did not make the journey here.

Quarterbacks Chandler Harnish of Northern Illinois and Tyler Hansen of Colorado had short TD runs for the West, which rallied from an early 10-0 deficit at Tropicana Field. Former Oregon quarterback Joey Harrington and one-time Kansas State kicker Martin Gramatica were honored at halftime as the latest inductees into the East-West Shrine Hall of Fame. • NationalteamwinsNFLPA Collegiate Bowl: Syracuse running back Antwon Bailey and Tulsa quarterback G.J.

Soccer • U.S. player Krieger has torn ACL, likely to miss Olympics: The U.S. women’s soccer team lost a valuable piece Saturday when defender Ali Krieger was diagnosed with torn knee ligaments, likely ruling her out for the London Olympics. Krieger tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in her right knee during Friday night’s 14-0 win over the Dominican Republic in a qualifying match. The injury requires six to eight months of rehabilitation, a timetable that does not bode well for the Olympics that begin in late July.

Cycling • Simon Gerrans wins Tour Down Under: Australia’s Simon Gerrans won the Tour Down Under for the second time today in Adelaide, Australia, giving newly formed Australian GreenEDGE its first victory in a World Tour event. Gerrans, who won the race in 2006 and has won stages of the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana, entered the 56-mile final stage around an Adelaide street circuit as the race leader, but with the same time as second-place Alejandro Valverde of Spain.

The Swiss standout, who announced his retirement at the end of the season two days ago, went down the mountain in 1 minute, 13.28 second in heavy snowfall to beat Austrian pair Romed Baumann and Klaus Kroell by 0.24 and 0.30 seconds, respectively. Because of the overhanging cloud cover and snowfall, organizers lowered the starting gate to shorten the 3.3-kilometer course to 2 kilometers. • American Davis grabs World Cup gold in men’s 1,000: Shani Davis won his first World Cup gold medal of the season on Saturday while Canada’s Christine Nesbitt stayed perfect in the 1,000 meters.

Oregon’s Tony Woods (55) celebrates in the second half during an NCAA college basketball game with UCLA Saturday in Eugene. Oregon defeated UCLA 75-68.

Ducks rally late for victory over Bruins Th e Associated Press EUGENE — Oregon played so poorly in the first half against UCLA on Saturday that Ducks coach Dana Altman said it was painful to watch. Redemption came after halftime. E.J. Singler scored a career-high 26 points and Oregon rallied from a 13-point deficit to defeat the Bruins 75-68. “Our passion and energy in the first half was really disappointing,” said Altman, whose Ducks (15-5, 6-2 Pac-12) are off to their best start since opening 18-1 in 2006-07. “We set basketball back 10 years there in the first half.” Garrett Sim added 16 points for the Ducks, including back-to-back three-pointers early in the second half to spark the comeback. Devoe Joseph had 10 for Oregon, which has won four straight conference games for the first time since winning six straight in 2007. Singler scored 20 points in the second half and was 16 of 17 from the free-throw line overall, including 10 for 10 in the final 3:30. All told, the Ducks made 28 of 32 free throws; UCLA made just 10 of 21. “We showed toughness and heart today,” Singler said. “Coming out and winning feels good and shows we have heart, and that means a lot.” Travis Wear led the Bruins (10-9, 3-4) with 17 points, Lazeric Jones added 14, and Jerime Anderson and David Wear had 10 apiece. The Ducks shot just 23 percent from the floor in the first half and trailed 37-24 at the break. But fueled by its pressure defense and suddenly hot shooting, Oregon opened the second half on a 15-2 run and tied the game at 39 on a put-back dunk by Tony Woods with 15:28 to play. “Our press produced energy for us,” Singler said. “Our defense stepped up in the second half.” The crowd of 10,830 — Oregon’s largest at home this season — finally ignited when Sim buried a three-pointer early in the Ducks’ run and was fouled. It also elicited an emotional response from Altman on the sideline before Sim completed the four-point play. “We needed something to get the crowd going,”

PAC-12 ROUNDUP Altman said. “Yeah, I was excited. I was excited the whole second half. It was a big shot and we needed it at that point.” The Bruins regrouped and eventually rebuilt a 5042 advantage with less than 10 minutes to play. Joseph and Sim made three-pointers on consecutive possessions to cut the Ducks’ deficit to 50-48. Then Singler took over. The junior scored 10 of Oregon’s next 14 points, including a basket off a rebound that made it 52-50 with 7:45 remaining for the Ducks’ first lead of the game.

The Associated Press CORVALLIS — Oregon State entered the weekend on a three-game losing streak and at a crossroads in its season. The Beavers exited Saturday with something to build on after a 78-59 win against USC for a two-game Pac-12 home sweep. Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said he thought the home series against UCLA and USC was the most important two-game stretch of his four years with the Beavers. “Getting back in the mix a little bit with our confidence was important, and I thought we did that tonight,” said Robinson, whose team beat UCLA 87-84 two days earlier. Jared Cunningham had 18 points and five assists, Devon Collier 12 points and Joe Burton 11 for the Beavers (13-7, 3-5), who got a pregame talk from Oregon State alumnus Gary Payton, an NBA standout from 1990-2007. “He said to keep working hard and he believes in us, and we’re a tough team,” Cunningham said of Payton, who has seen the Beavers play in the Los Angeles area numerous times since leaving Oregon State but rarely in Corvallis. Byron Wesley had 15 points and seven rebounds and Maurice Jones 13 points for the Trojans (5-15, 0-7), who gave up a season high in points. Cunningham’s three-point play with 16:20 remaining gave Oregon State a 47-26 lead. Jones scored four points in a 7-0 USC run that cut the Beavers’ lead to 14. Oregon State answered with four straight points, including a thunderous dunk by Cunningham off a steal. The Trojans got no closer than 13 afterward. USC had not allowed more than 66 points this season. Oregon State got its 67th point on Angus Brandt’s free throw with 4:02 left. Oregon State was held below its 82.9 scoring average, which was sixth-best in the country entering Saturday. The Beavers shot 30 of 59 (50.8 percent) from the floor, while the Trojans were 25 of 50 (50 percent). Oregon State had a 36-27 rebounding edge, including a game-high 11 by Eric Moreland. The Beavers equaled their average of 10 steals per game, which is second in the country. Cunningham scored seven points in a 16-2 first-half run that put the Beavers up 18-8. Collier dunked off a Cunningham assist to give Oregon State its biggest lead of the first half, 35-19.

Notre Dame hands No. 1 Syracuse first loss The Associated Press SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Mike Brey’s viewing selection for his players the night before meeting top-ranked Syracuse was an easy choice. The Notre Dame coach showed a video of former Irish teams upsetting No. 1 teams over the years. Brey and the current group of Irish now have their own spot in that collection. Jack Cooley had 17 points and 10 rebounds against a Syracuse team missing its shot-blocking, rebounding center Fab Melo and the Irish surprised the top-ranked and previously unbeaten Orange 67-58 on Saturday night. Fans stormed the court after the Irish’s rousing victory, hoisting players on their shoulders in a wild scene at the Purcell Pavilion. It was the eighth time Notre Dame has beaten a No. 1 team — that ties for fourth-most all-time, with North Carolina having the most with 12. “Notre Dame has an unbelievable history against No. 1 teams,” Irish forward Scott Martin said. “We saw a little video to just kind of pump us up a little bit.” Cooley was certainly inspired. Without Melo in the middle, Notre Dame’s 6-foot-9, 248-pound center was a major force as the Irish won the rebound battle 38-25. “I can’t even describe this right now. They were 20-0. I can’t put it to words how amazing this is,” Cooley said. “We came out with energy. This was a great opportunity and we didn’t want to squander it.” Also on Saturday:

Rangers beat Bruins in overtime

Rafael Nadal makes a backhand return to Feliciano Lopez during their fourth-round match at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia, today. The No. 2-seeded Nadal won 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.

Nadal, Clijsters advance to Aussie Open quarterfinals By Caroline Cheese

TENNIS ROUNDUP trol against Lopez. “I am fine,” Nadal said. “It was a very, very hot day. I think it’s positive to keep winning in straight sets.” Nadal will play Tomas Berdych, hoping to avoid a third straight quarterfinal loss in Melbourne. Defending the title in 2010, the Spaniard retired with a knee injury against Andy Murray. A year ago, he was hampered by a hamstring problem in a straight-sets loss to David Ferrer. “Hopefully, not happen this time,” Nadal said. “I had a bad experience last two years here. It’s tough have to go out of a tournament like Australia in quarterfinals.” Federer was up against 19year-old Australian Bernard Tomic in the first match of the night session later today. The 16-time Grand Slam champion hasn’t been beaten by a teenager since 2006, when he lost to Andy Murray at the Cincinnati Masters. Also today, defending champion Kim Clijsters defeated Li Na in a repeat of the 2011 final. Clijsters beat Li 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-4. Victoria Azarenka was the first player to reach the quar-

terfinals when she beat Iveta Benesova 6-2, 6-2. The thirdseeded Belarusian is yet to drop a set here and will next meet eighth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, who beat Julia Goerges of Germany 6-1, 6-1. With the win, 22-year-old Azarenka stayed in the hunt for the No. 1 ranking. Petra Kvitova and Maria Sharapova can also claim the top spot from Caroline Wozniacki. “I would be a liar if I said I didn’t care about it,” Azarenka said. “It’s in the back of my head and we’ll take it day by day, I guess.” Azarenka, like Wozniacki, is aiming for her first Grand Slam title. She has never gone past the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, but goes into her match against Radwanska with a 6-3 record. The last of those victories came at the Sydney International tournament, which Azarenka won before coming to Melbourne. Today’s win was her ninth straight, but the likes of Serena Williams and Clijsters are still attracting more attention. “For me, doesn’t really matter. I try to focus on myself,” Azarenka said. “I think I’m in the best shape physically right now, so it kind of helps other aspects of the game. I feel pretty good out there.”

fastest serve of the tournament so far at 118 miles per hour.) To sum up, the overall impression has been positive, and her opponent on Saturday, the 32-year-old Hungarian Greta Arn, who had never played her before, was certainly complimentary. She set the tone even before the match began by calling Williams “the player of the century” and saying it was a privilege to play her. She soon relayed the same message to Williams directly, meeting her at the net after losing, 6-1, 6-1, in just 59 minutes. “I’m a big fan of her, she’s the real No. 1, and so I think she’s going to win the tournament,” Arn said. “She does things differently than other players. The way how she walks into the court, the way she hits the ball, the way how she does everything is different, and that’s what I like.” The opposition should soon get stronger and less conciliatory, however. In the fourth round today, Williams will face Ekaterina Makarova, the unseeded Russian left-hander who upset a compatriot, seventh-seeded Vera Zvonareva, 7-6 (7), 6-1, in the third round. If Williams beats Makarova, she will play in the quarterfinals against the winner of the match between fourth-seeded Maria Sharapova and No. 14 Sabine Lisicki. Sharapova, playing with renewed ferocity, has dropped just five games in three matches. Petra Kvitova, the No. 2 seed who won Wimbledon last year, is also in the same half of the draw and advanced Saturday with ease after Maria Kirilenko retired with a leg injury. Kvitova was leading, 6-0, 1-0. “It’s only going to get tougher and tougher for Serena each round, but I think she’s ready for it, and I think she’s going to do well,” said Aleksander

Bajin, her longtime hitting partner. Williams is on anti-inflammatory medication for her ankle and said she remained on blood-thinning medication in the wake of the pulmonary embolisms she experienced last February, when she was rushed to an emergency room in Los Angeles. “I’m totally OK now,” she said. “I feel like I can totally go on, I’m still checking with my doctors, still take medicine for it. I still go in, and they check my lungs and it’s a lifelong process. This is a long trip for me, but when I go back, that is the first thing I have to do, get back situated with that whole kind of thing. But yeah, I just appreciate every moment. You never know what tomorrow brings, if tomorrow comes.” Williams speaks from experience: the murder in 2003 of her half-sister Yetunde Price and the death last month after an extended illness of Keven J. Davis, her family’s longtime legal adviser and confidant. “Life just comes at you so fast,” Williams said. “Just in February, he was visiting me in the hospital and hanging out in L.A. and having a blast and how quickly things go. When you lose someone that close to you, it’s definitely hard, but in this situation it was easier for him to go, because he was in a lot of pain. But it wasn’t easy for us, but you know, his sins are all forgiven now so we can take comfort from that.” Williams said she struggled to find a grand design. “I never believe things happen for a reason,” she said. “Like there’s a reason my sister was murdered? I never believed in that, but I do believe that unforeseen things happen at unforeseen times, which is actually a scripture from Ecclesiastes.”

MELBOURNE, Australia — His right knee and left ankle taped, Rafael Nadal didn’t look to be in any pain as he gave friend Feliciano Lopez the runaround today, winning 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 to reach the Australian Open quarterfinals. Nadal, who bizarrely hurt his knee while sitting in a chair the day before the tournament began, is one win away from a possible semifinal against old rival Roger Federer after beating his fellow Spaniard for the ninth time in 11 matches. “Feliciano is one of my best friends on tour. That’s the game. That’s the sport,” said Nadal, who hasn’t dropped a set in four matches. “You understand that’s only a game. You understand that everybody wants to win; everybody wants to finish the match with the best result.” On a sunny day with the temperature rising to 91, both players sat with ice towels around their necks during the changeovers. Nadal needed treatment from the trainer for a left ankle problem after three games of the first set. By that time, he had already broken serve and he did the same early in the next two sets to maintain con-

Serena Continued from D1 “Venus changed her diet, and we live together, so I can’t bring bad food into the house,” Serena said. “I kind of joined the train instead of being off it. I’ve always been a pretty clean eater, but I’ve just never, like, been this clean. I’m eating more veggies now, and I’m just eating more, not necessarily raw, but more raw. Not eating a lot of meat. I’ve never been a huge meat eater, but I don’t even like meat so much anymore.” The benefits might have been more noticeable on court here if she had not torn ligaments in her left ankle during her warm-up tournament in Brisbane. That forced her to race the clock in an attempt to get healthy for the Open, which she first played as a 16-year-old and has won five times, including the past two times she played it, in 2009 and 2010. “I felt like if I hadn’t got that injury, then I would have been able to do more things and felt even better, so I’m kind of trying to work my way into this event,” she said. “So I’ll see next event, see how it goes.” She remains very much a part of this one, however. She has yet to drop a set in three matches, getting her best test in the opening round against the counterpunching of the Austrian Tamira Paszek. There have been some shaky patches of play: some gaffes at the net, some backhand errors linked perhaps to the fact that her backhand requires her to push off her left leg. But she has moved surprisingly well so far and served patiently and effectively on the few critical points she has faced, continuing to generate the intimidating pace that has helped make her a champion. (She had the

The Associated Press BOSTON — The New York Rangers finally broke their power-play drought with just 3.6 seconds to spare. Ryan McDonagh wasn’t around to help them celebrate. After Andrew Ference was ejected for sending McDonagh crashing into the boards in overtime, Marian Gaborik scored a third-try goal and the Rangers beat Boston 3-2 on Saturday in a matchup of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference. “We don’t care about first place, the division, the conference,” Rangers coach John Tortorella said. “We are just trying to play the right way.” The Rangers hadn’t scored a power-play goal in seven games — a total of 15 opportunities after going zero for two in regulation on Saturday — and had just one since Christmas. But they earned one during a four-on-three advantage after Ference pushed McDonagh into the boards, shoulders- and chest-first, with 3:10 left in overtime. Ference was given a fiveminute major and game misconduct. Both teams said they expect the NHL to review the hit, and a suspension is possible. “It was one of the most dangerous hits I’ve seen in a while,” Tortorella said. “Nothing needs to be said about what has to be done.” McDonagh remained on the ice for a few minutes before he skated off with a trainer. The Rangers wouldn’t specify the injury except to say it was to his upper body. “The five minutes, obviously, didn’t help the team, but on top of that you just hope you didn’t put a guy in a bad spot,” said Ference, who scored for the second consecutive game. “It’s a bad feeling both ways.” Bruins coach Claude Julien defended his defenseman, saying the hit was more damaging because McDonagh was off-balance. “Andrew Ference is not a dirty player,” Julien said. “He’s a guy who is trying to support what the league is trying to do as far as preventing injuries.” Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves for the Rangers. Ryan Callahan also scored for the Rangers, who lead the Eastern Conference with 64 points. Tuukka Rask stopped 30 shots for the Bruins. It looked as though they might make it to a shootout, but in the closing seconds Rask saved a shot from Callahan and then knocked away a backhander from Brad Richards with his glove. Gaborik put in the rebound for the game-winner. “We didn’t generate a lot of scoring chances,” said

NFL Continued from D1 It could shape up as an awesome weekend. Certainly an intriguing one. New England (14-3) hasn’t won the AFC crown since 2007, when it was unbeaten until the Giants pulled off a shocker in the Super Bowl. The Patriots’ last NFL title came in January 2005. To get their fourth league championship under coach Bill Belichick and with Brady at quarterback, they’ll need to have their offense in high gear, which it has been nearly all season. The Patriots scored at least 27 points in all but three games and averaged 32.8, including last week’s 45-10 rout of Denver, their ninth straight victory. But New England didn’t beat an opponent that finished with a winning record, and lost to its two most difficult foes, Pittsburgh and the Giants. Baltimore (13-4) most assuredly presents a difficult challenge, with a defense that yielded 266 points, more than only two teams. “I think we have a lot of confidence, we are a confident type team, have a lot of good players and they feed off each other,” All-Pro receiver Welker said. “We feel someone will step up and make a play ... and it makes it tough on defenses. “I understand we are playing a great football team this week and have to be on top of everything. No mental errors, no bad mistakes, knowing your job and taking care of your business.” Brady usually does that, although before the romp past Denver, he and the Patriots had lost three straight postseason games. He is 4-0 in regular-season meetings with the Ravens, but lost their only playoff matchup. If he isn’t at his best, it will be because of Lewis, Reed and that staunch Baltimore D. The Ravens are as physical as anyone, and one thing that historically has slowed Brady has been when a defense gets in his face, disrupts his rhythm — and hits him. Many times. “It’s more important that we stop their whole offense,” said Reed, whom Belichick called the greatest safety he has faced during his coaching career. “We can’t focus

Sizing up the games A look at the conference championship games by Newsday’s John Boell: NFC CHAMPIONSHIP: I’ll admit it. I’ve been a non-believer the past few weeks when it comes to the Giants. But I’ve seen the error of my ways. As tough as the Niners (13-3-1 against the spread) are, I like the G-Men getting 2½. Neither team is the same from their Week 10 meeting (won, 27-20, by San Fran). The Giants are healthier, playing better defense, rushing the passer well, and even running the ball more efficiently than they have all season. Plus, Eli Manning has left no doubt that he is an elite NFL QB. I believe Tom Coughlin’s “Road Warriors” (7-0 against the spread in their past seven playoff road games) win outright, and advance to their fifth Super Bowl. The pick: Giants, 27-24. AFC CHAMPIONSHIP: We’ve seen two powerful offenses get kicked to the NFL playoff curb last weekend when Green Bay and New Orleans lost in the divisional round. Can Baltimore make it a trifecta by taking care of New England today? I’m not so sure. Since the Pats lost in Week 9 to the Giants, 24-20, they have outscored their opponents by an average of 37.3-18.7. I know they haven’t beaten a team with a winning record this season. But they have scored at least 31 points in all but one of their past nine games, and have given up more than 24 points just once in that span. The Pats suffered a 33-14 home pasting vs. Baltimore in an ’09 firstround game. That was then, this is now. The Patriots are 6-1 overall in AFC title games, 4-1 with Tom Brady as QB, and 3-0 at home. The pick: Patriots, 34-23.

on one particular player, because Brady doesn’t. Brady throws it to everybody. I’ve been saying that all week. He’ll throw it to an offensive lineman.

the field. We have 11 guys on the field. Everybody has to do their responsibility.” The 11 guys on each side of the ball at Candlestick Park for the NFC championship game will carry on a tradition of notable meetings that dates back to when the 49ers (14-3) and Giants (11-7) were dominating the conference in the 1980s. Their only faceoff in the title game was in January 1991, when New York kicked five field goals for a 15-13 victory, preventing San Francisco from going after a third straight Super Bowl trophy. While it’s fun to conjure up memories of Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Lawrence Taylor and Matt Bahr, this year’s participants are more concerned with adding to a winning legacy. This is the 49ers’ first playoff appearance since the 2002 season, when they won a wild 39-38 wild-card game against the Giants. New York, of course, won it all four years ago. “Winning is what it’s all about and it definitely makes coming to work a lot better than hearing, ‘Who’s going to be your new head coach or defensive coordinator?’ All-Pro defensive tackle Justin Smith said. “I’ll take this over the other for sure.” No worries on the coaching front after Jim Harbaugh made his first year in charge one of the most successful for any rookie coach. Harbaugh doesn’t have much of a feel for Giants-49ers, though; he didn’t play for either team. Giants coach Tom Coughlin, who was on the 1990 championship staff, knows all about it. “I have thought about that and we will talk about some of the things that occurred there,” Coughlin said, “but only from the standpoint of the history and the tradition and what a great event that was at that particular time. That was a long time ago and I think some of our players, because they are historians, will know a little about that game and the great players that played in that game.” More appropriate, perhaps, is the 27-20 win by the 49ers in November, a game decided only when Smith blocked Eli Manning’s last-minute pass deep in San Francisco territory. It was the latest installment of a grand rivalry. Until today.



High wind halts third round of Humana Challenge The Associated Press LA QUINTA, Calif. — When the wind knocked a big scoreboard into a lake and ripped a few trees out of the ground Saturday, Mark Wilson realized he really didn’t mind if he couldn’t finish his third round at the Humana Challenge. Wilson and his fellow pros were more than happy to wait out the windstorm and just come back today, when Wilson will attempt to maintain his momentum for what might be a marathon finish to the erstwhile Bob Hope Classic. Wilson held a threestroke lead over Ben Crane at 21 under when play was suspended midway through the third round. Ferocious wind reaching 35 mph caused damage on all three courses, even interrupting former President Bill Clinton’s round with Greg Norman. “I think they made the right call,” Wilson said. “You don’t want to see anybody get hurt.” The pro-am tournament will resume third-round play this morning without the amateurs. They’ll also attempt to finish the fourth round, which could be tough after the event’s first wind delay since 1999 — the first on the PGA Tour since 2009 in Houston. Nobody was hurt by the wind at the Humana Challenge, even after an awning collapsed in the Bob Hope Square fan area. Conditions weren’t terrible on two of the tournament’s three courses, but several trees were toppled at the La Quinta Country Club course, making the decision easy. “It’s really bad,” said Slugger White, the PGA Tour’s vice president of rules and competitions. “They’ve got a lot of trees down. It’s a real mess. ... We knew (the wind) was going to be bad, but we thought it would be something we could play with, and then the bottom fell out.” La Quinta didn’t even get the worst of the Coachella Valley craziness: A 66-mph gust was recorded at the Palm Springs airport. White said he believes they can finish the fourround event today “in a perfect world.” Wilson doubts it after vicious gusts interrupted a previously perInterior Design & Finishes by

Also on Saturday: Birdies help Forsman to lead KAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii — Dan Forsman had six back-nine birdies for a 7-under 65 and a two-stroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour’s season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship. Forsman, a two-time winner on the 50-and-over tour, had a 12-under 132 total at Hualalai Resort. Brad Bryant had the day’s low round, an 8-under 64, to match 2010 champion Tom Watson (65) and Jeff Sluman (66) at 10 under. Third round ends with two tied GEORGE, South Africa — Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts shot a 4-under 69 in windy conditions for a share of the third-round lead with South Africa’s Branden Grace in the Volvo Golf Champions. Grace, the Joburg Open winner last week for his first European Tour title, shot a 75 to match Colsaerts at 10-under 209 at The Links at Fancourt. South African stars Charl Schwartzel (68) and Retief Goosen (70) were a stroke back.

Pistons hold on to beat Blazers The Associated Press AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Rodney Stuckey returned to the lineup and helped the Detroit Pistons shake their turnover problems. Stuckey scored 28 points, part of a crisp offensive performance by Detroit in its 94-91 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. The Pistons led by 16 in the third quarter then held on to win when Raymond Felton lost the ball near midcourt in the final seconds. Detroit turned the ball over 25 times in a loss to Memphis on Friday night. The Pistons reduced that number to 11 on Saturday and looked more comfortable with Stuckey in the backcourt alongside rookie Brandon Knight. Both players are capable of playing point guard. “We can play off of each other,” Knight said. “It’s definitely good having two ball handlers that can both attack and both create for the team.” Stuckey had been averaging only 11.3 points, but he was aggressive from the start after missing the previous game with a groin injury. Detroit was without guard Ben Gordon (left shoulder). “I was just trying to come out and be aggressive for my team tonight,” Stuckey said. “With the injury, it’s just going to be a nagging thing throughout the whole year.” The Pistons won for only the second time in 12 games. The Trail Blazers were down three after Felton made two free throws with 37 seconds remaining. Stuckey missed a wild driving attempt, and Portland rebounded and called a timeout with 15.6 seconds left. Jamal Crawford drove for a layup with 8.4 seconds to go, and Stuckey answered with a pair of free throws. Detroit fouled Felton at midcourt, preventing Portland from trying a three-point attempt. He made both free throws, but Stuckey made two of his own with 4.4 seconds left to make it 94-91. The Pistons were ready to foul Felton again but didn’t have to. “It was a perfect situation,” Detroit coach Lawrence Frank said. “They had no timeouts — had to go the length of the court. It worked out for us.” Tayshaun Prince added 17 points for Detroit, which led by as many as 16 in the third quarter. LaMarcus Aldridge led Portland with 25 points, one night after a 33-point, 23-rebound effort against Toronto. Felton had 20 points and nine assists. The Pistons turned the ball over only four times in the first half. Detroit went on a 21-5 run in the second quarter to take a 47-34 lead. Stuckey scored 16 points in the half and Prince added 12, helping the Pistons to a 54-43 lead at the break. “You can’t flip a switch in this league. I thought we tried to flip a switch against these guys tonight. That’s not going to work,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “You’ve got to come in here ready to play. Offensively, we didn’t work to establish ourselves inside tonight. We settled for jump shot after jump shot. Not only did we settle for jump shots, but they were contested shots.” Stuckey’s three-pointer at the shot clock buzzer put Detroit ahead 67-51, but the Trail Blazers finally answered with a 16-2 run, cutting the lead to two on a three-pointer by Nicolas Batum. Portland trimmed the deficit to one on several occasions in the fourth, but Detroit responded each time. The Pistons finally gave themselves some breathing room when Greg Monroe tipped in a miss, Jason Maxiell added a putback of his own, and Monroe made two free throws to push it to 87-80 with 3:02

Wealth not the issue for Romney


itt Romney is a rich man, but is Mitt Romney’s character formed by his wealth? Is Romney a spoiled, cosseted character? Has he been corrupted by ease and luxury? The notion is preposterous. All his life, Romney has been a worker and a grinder. He earned two degrees at Harvard simultaneously (in law and business). He built a business. He’s persevered year after year, amid defeat after defeat, to build a political career. Romney’s salient quality is not wealth. It is, for better and worse, his tenacious drive — the sort of relentlessness that we associate with striving immigrants, not rich scions. Where did this persistence come from? It’s plausible to think that it came from his family history. Philosopher Michael Oakeshott once observed that it takes several generations to make a career. Interests, habits and lore accrue in families and shape those born into them. The Romney family history, which is nicely described in “The Real Romney” by Michael Kranish and Scott Helman, is a story of tenacious work, setbacks and recovery. People who analyze how Mormonism may have shaped Romney generally look to theology. But the Mormon history, the exodus, matters most. Mitt Romney’s great-great-grandfather Miles was a member of the church in Nauvoo, Ill., and spent years building a temple there. Even after Joseph Smith was killed by a mob and most of the Mormons fled, Miles stayed to finish his temple. Then, in 1844, as it was being completed, mobs burned it to the ground. Most Mormons made the trek to Salt Lake City, but the Romneys could not afford an ox cart. They were part of a small, malnourished band that took four years to make it the 1,300 miles. Mitt’s great-grandfather, also Miles, made the trek starting at age 7. He was married in 1862, but a month after his marriage Brigham Young told him to leave his wife, Hannah, and become a missionary for three years in Britain. Hannah supported herself by taking in other people’s washing. Miles returned in 1867 and bought a two-room house. Young commanded him to take another wife, and Hannah had to prepare the room for the woman who would be her rival. “I used to walk the floor and shed tears of sorrow,” she recounted in her own private memoir. Then they were commanded to leave family and friends and build a settlement in the desert 300 miles south of Salt Lake City. Then came another command to move 400 miles across the wilderness to settle a desert patch in Arizona. Again the Romneys were thrown into hardship. Miles, his three wives and their many children lived in a small wooden house and survived on bread, beans and gravy. There, as elsewhere, the locals detested the Mormons for their polygamy, for their religion and for the fact that the Mormons tended to outwork them. The local newspaper said Miles should be hanged for polygamy, so two of his wives were sent to hide. They were compelled to move again. Romney left his family to build a colony in Mexico. Eventually, all the wives and the 21 children were reunited. Miles and his son Gaskell, Mitt’s grandfather, built a successful community. George Romney, Mitt’s father, was born in Mexico. But when he was 5, in 1912, Mexican revolutionaries confiscated their property and threw them out. Within days, they went from owning a large Mexican ranch to being penniless once again, drifting from California to Idaho to Utah, where again they built a fortune. Mitt Romney can’t talk about his family history on the campaign trail. Mormonism is an uncomfortable subject. But he must have been affected by it. Romney seems to share his family’s remorseless drive to rise. He may have character flaws, but he does not have the character flaws normally associated with great wealth. His signature is focus and persistence. The wealth issue is a sideshow. — David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times. John Costa’s column will return.

Fighter jets on the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, in the North Arabian Sea, fly sorties into Afghanistan. The use of air power has changed markedly during the long Afghan conflict, reflecting the political costs and sensitivities of civilian casualties caused by errant or indiscriminate strikes and the increasing use of aerial drones.


A changed view of aerial warfare • A new mentality has U.S. fighter jets taking a largely nonlethal support role By C.J. Chivers New York Times News Service

INSIDE STRIKE FIGHTER VENGEANCE 13, over Kandahar province, Afghanistan —


mdr. Layne McDowell glanced over his left shoulder, through the canopy of a Navy F/A-18, to an Afghan canyon 9,000 feet below. A U.S. infantry company was down there. The soldiers had been inserted by helicopter. Now a ground controller wanted the three strike fighters circling overhead to send a sign — both to the grunts and to any Taliban fighters shadowing them as they walked.

McDowell banked and aligned his jet’s nose with the canyon’s northeastern end. Then he followed his wingmen’s lead. He dived, pulled level at 5,000 feet and accelerated down the canyon’s axis at about 620 miles per hour, broadcasting his proximity with an extended engine roar. In the lexicon of close air support, his maneuver was a “show of presence” — a mid-altitude, nonlethal display intended to reassure ground troops and signal to the Taliban that the soldiers were not alone. It reflected a sharp shift in the application of U.S. air power, de-emphasizing overpowering violence in favor of sorties that often end without ordnance be-

ing dropped. The use of air power has changed markedly during the long Afghan conflict, reflecting the political costs and sensitivities of civilian casualties caused by errant or indiscriminate strikes and the increasing use of aerial drones, which can watch over potential targets for extended periods with no risk to pilots or more expensive aircraft. Fighter jets with pilots, however, remain an essential component of the war, in part because little else in the allied arsenal is considered as versatile or imposing, and because of improvements in the aircraft’s sensors.

Don’t conceal state pension information


axpayers, beware. Public employees are asking the Oregon Legislature to make it harder to find out how the government spends your money.

A bill planned for the February session would block the release of employee and retiree names by the state pension system called PERS. A coalition of employees and retirees say their argument is about privacy. They don’t want others to know their pension benefits. There is no need, they argue. “This doesn’t interfere with any of the other information being released, but we don’t think that the name itself is necessary,� Greg Hartman, a Portland attorney representing employees and retirees, told The Oregonian. Doesn’t interfere? Not necessary? Who do they think they are fooling? What a wonder it would be if a coalition of government employees ever argued for more open government.

PERS records are public so the public can understand how the system works. The pension system is a $60 billion responsibility for the state. Right now, the state is not projected to be able to pay all its future obligations. School districts and other entities are being squeezed for more money to cover. Bend La-Pine Schools is paying $5 million more a year to PERS. That’s $5 million a year that cannot be spent on more teachers, new books or computers. That overall picture is bleak enough. Oregonians can’t understand it fully without knowing the details. They need to know individual names to be able to find abuses, outliers and other problems. Government employees and retirees have known for years that they are held to a higher standard. They serve Oregonians. They get paid by Oregonians. They don’t get to hide from Oregonians.

A better approach to Internet piracy


ikipedia, the free multilingual Internet encyclopedia, went dark Wednesday. At least its English-language website went dark to call attention to its problems with two bills now before Congress that aim to curb Internet piracy, particularly movies and music. The U.S. Senate’s Protect IP Act, PIPA, and its counterpart in the House of Representatives, have raised concerns from a host of Internet companies, among them Google, Twitter, Reddit and Facebook. Both would give the U.S. Justice Department power to obtain an order requiring Google and others to block links to foreign websites where piracy occurs, among other things. Those who oppose the pair note that they fail to protect social media and are inconsistent with U.S. calls for open Internet access even in closed societies. Not surprisingly, Sen. Ron Wyden, who has long been a champion of a free and open Internet, has joined forces with Congressman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and others of both parties to introduce legislation that they believe will accomplish the same end with a much more carefully created law. The Online Protection and Enforcement of Digital Trade Act (OPEN) would move action against foreign sites that allow piracy from the U.S. Justice Department to the International Trade Commission.

The OPEN bill works to protect free speech and property rights without forcing providers like Wikipedia and Google to become the heavies in the fight. It makes more sense than either PIPA or the House’s SOBA. Wyden argues the shift would give the ITC, which already has expertise in the area, the power to go after copyright abuse. What it wouldn’t do is require legitimate websites to deny their customers access to those websites. There’s no question Internet piracy of copyrighted material is a huge problem. The Recording Industry Association of America places losses due to music piracy at more than $12 billion per year, while the illegal downloads of popular movies number in the millions each. Toss in software piracy and you’re starting to talk about a truly staggering problem. The OPEN bill works to protect free speech and property rights without forcing providers like Wikipedia and Google to become the heavies in the fight. It makes more sense than either PIPA or the House’s SOBA.

Crisis talk fails reality check By Jonathan Weil Bloomberg News

NEW YORK — f you and I were in a bar together, and you suffered a nasty bump on your head when I accidentally whacked you with a pool cue, there probably would be no disputing that my action caused your harm. But for my careless swing of the stick, the injury wouldn’t have happened. Not all examples of causation are so simple. Often there is more than one cause when a person is hurt, just as there are usually multiple causes for any major historical event. This brings us to the long-running kerfuffle over the role that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac played in causing the financial crisis of 2008, which hasn’t really ended. The way the discussion gets framed tends to go like this: Did Fannie and Freddie cause the crisis? Although this is the wrong question, I’ll try to answer it anyway by highlighting the difference between the meaning of the words “a� and “the.� Here it goes. Fannie Mae was a cause of the financial crisis. So was Freddie Mac. U.S. government housing policies, which often encouraged people to take out loans they couldn’t repay to buy homes they couldn’t afford, were also a cause. None of these was “the� cause of the crisis, because there was no single cause. What we can say is this: But for the actions of a vast number of actors, including Fannie and Freddie, the crisis


wouldn’t have happened the way that it did. That seems straightforward enough. Yet this silly debate — over whether the government-backed housing financiers and their enablers were a cause or the cause — keeps raging anyway. Two people often cited as proponents of the notion that Fannie and Freddie caused the crisis are Peter Wallison and Edward Pinto. Both are fellows at the American Enterprise Institute, a Washington think tank. Wallison was a Republican member of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission who wrote a 98-page dissent to the panel’s final report in 2011. Last month, in an article responding to a column by Joe Nocera of the New York Times, Wallison and Pinto framed their thesis this way: “Our argument is and has been that the financial crisis would not have occurred but for government housing policy implemented principally through Fannie and Freddie and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.� It’s a debatable, if not a particularly useful, observation. One reason Wallison and Pinto have drawn so much criticism for their work is that they consistently dismiss every other possible cause of the crisis, so that only Fannie, Freddie and U.S. housing policies survive the scholars’ own “but for� test. Never mind interest rates held too low for too long, worthless regulators or banks with excessive leverage, for instance.

At most these may have been contributing factors, not causes, Wallison said in his dissent to the crisis commission’s final report last year. It’s an extreme position, for sure. Last week in an article for the Real Clear Markets website called “How Fannie, Freddie and Politicians Caused the Crisis,� Pinto concluded by saying that “government housing policies and the toxic mortgages they spawned were the sine qua non of the financial crisis.� (Plain English translation: Each was something absolutely essential or indispensable to the crisis.) The same could be said of so many other things, though. There were the credit raters that dispensed AAA ratings for garbage mortgage bonds that otherwise never would have been issued. There was the recklessness of top executives at American International Group and Lehman Brothers Holdings. No doubt, it’s an outrage that Fannie and Freddie still exist, more than three years after they collapsed into government conservatorship. Let’s just stipulate that Fannie and Freddie were a cause of the crisis, even a big one, and leave it at that. The crucial discussion our leaders need to be having now is how to end them. If they can’t come up with an answer, it’s probably by choice. Nobody is willing to take the hit today any more than they were in 2008. Some things seem to never change. — Jonathan Weil is a columnist for Bloomberg

Future bankers need to rescue capitalism from cronies


hen I spoke at Swarthmore College recently, I was startled by one question: Is it immoral for students to seek banking jobs? The corollary question, with Mitt Romney’s business career under attack even by staunch Republicans, is this: Is it unethical to make millions in private equity? My answer to both questions: no. I’ve been sympathetic to the Occupy Wall Street movement, but, look, finance is not evil. Banking has contributed immensely to modern civilization. By allocating capital to more efficient uses, banking laid the groundwork for the industrial revolution and the information revolution. Likewise, the attacks on private equity seem over the top. Private equity firms like Bain Capital, where Romney worked, aren’t about destroying companies and picking

over the carcasses. Rather, the aim is to acquire poorly managed companies, make them more efficient (sometimes by firing people but often by rejiggering the business model) and then resell them at a profit. That’s the merciless, rugged nature of capitalism. Liberals should also be wary of self-selecting out of certain occupations. After Vietnam and revelations of CIA abuses in the 1970s, many university students avoided the military and the intelligence agencies. So slots were filled disproportionately by ideological conservatives in a way that undermined everyone’s interests. We would have been better off if more Swarthmore idealists had become generals and CIA officers — and we may be better off if some idealists become bankers as well. Now for my caveats. When young people go into fi-

NICHOLAS K R IS T O F nance, I hope that they’ll show judgment, balance and principles instead of their elders’ penchant for greed and rigging the system. Just as communists managed to destroy communism, capitalists are discrediting capitalism. Public skepticism is warranted, in my view. Corporations have vastly overpaid CEOs, handsomely rewarding not only success but also failure. Banks that helped cause today’s financial mess lobbied successfully for bailouts for themselves; they privatized profits and socialized losses. Meanwhile, more than 4 million families have lost their homes to foreclosure, according to Zillow

.com, a real estate company. Bankers and shareholders found a safety net, but not working-class families. One reason is that the campaign finance system allows financiers to buy access and special favors. If you’re a tycoon, your best investment often is a lobbying firm in Washington to create a tax loophole for you. The past few years have been a showcase not of capitalism itself, but of crony capitalism. Romney’s average tax rate, which he says is probably about 15 percent, exemplifies the problem. The Romneys benefit because capital gains tax rates have been slashed to just 15 percent, much lower than rates paid on labor income. Then there’s the most egregious tax loophole of all, for “carried interest.� A triumph of lobbying, it allows private equity and hedge fund managers to pretend that their labor income is a capital gain. So

they sometimes pay a tax rate of just 15 percent, compared with up to 35 percent for almost everyone else. When financiers rig the system, they should remember the warning of John Maynard Keynes: “The businessman is only tolerable so long as his gains can be held to bear some relation to what, roughly and in some sense, his activities have contributed to society.� So university students would be wrong to mock their classmates who choose Citigroup over CARE. Banking and private equity aren’t evil, and I would never urge college students to stay away. Maybe today’s young socialist sympathizers, along with healthy regulation and a loud public outcry, can help rescue capitalism from the crony capitalists. — Nicholas Kristof is a columnist for The New York Times


C U.S. should learn lesson from Greece I

n Greek mythology, the prophetess Cassandra was doomed both to tell the truth and to be ignored. Our modern version is a bankrupt Greece that we seem to discount. News accounts abound now of impoverished Athens residents scrounging pharmacies for scarce aspirin — as Greece is squeezed to make interest payments to the supposedly euro-pinching German banks. Such accounts may be exaggerations, but they should warn us that yearly progress is never assured. Instead, history offers plenty of examples of life becoming far worse than it had been centuries earlier. The biographer Plutarch, writing 500 years after the glories of classical Greece, lamented that in his time weeds grew amid the empty colonnades of the once-impressive Greek city-states. In America, most would prefer to live in the Detroit of 1941 than the Detroit of 2011. The quality of today’s air travel has regressed to the climate of yesterday’s bus service. In 2000, Greeks apparently assumed that they had struck it rich with their newfound money-laden European Union lenders — even though they certainly had not earned their new riches through increased productivity, the discovery of more natural resources, or greater collective investment and savings. The brief Euro mirage has vanished. Life in Athens is zooming backward to the pre-EU days of the 1970s. Then, most imported goods

The United States should pay heed to the modern Greek Cassandra, since our own rendezvous with reality is rapidly approaching. The costs of servicing a growing national debt of more than $15 trillion are starting to squeeze out other budget expenditures. Americans are no longer affluent enough to borrow hundreds of billions of dollars to import oil, while we snub our noses at vast new oil and gas finds beneath our own soil and seas. In my state, Californians for 40 years have hiked taxes; grown their government; vastly expanded entitlements; put farmland, timberland and oil and gas lands off limits; and opened their borders to millions of illegal aliens. They apparently assumed that they had inherited so much wealth from prior generations and that their state was so naturally rich, that a continually better life was their natural birthright. It wasn’t. Now, as in Greece, the veneer of civilization is proving pretty thin in California. Hospitals no longer have the money to offer sophisticated long-term medical care to the indigent. Cities no longer have the funds to self-insure

In 1960 there were far fewer government officials, far fewer prisons, far fewer laws and far fewer lawyers — and yet the state was a far safer place than it is a half-century later. Technological progress — whether iPhones or Xboxes — can often accompany moral regress. There are not yet weeds in our cities, but those too may be coming. The average Californian, like the average Greek, forgot that civilization is fragile. Its continuance requires respect for the law, toughminded education, collective thrift, private investment, individual self-reliance, and common codes of behavior and civility — and exempts no one from those rules. Such knowledge and patterns of civilized behavior, slowly accrued over centuries, can be lost in a single generation. A keen visitor to Athens — or Los Angeles — during the last decade not only could have seen that things were not quite right, but also could have concluded that they could not go on as they were. And so they are not. Washington, please take heed. — Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and historian at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

Madison sought ‘well constructed union’ By J.C.A. Stagg The Free Lance-Star

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — n Nov. 22, 1787, James Madison published, in the New York Daily Advertiser, what would become arguably his best known work — the much celebrated 10th Federalist essay. Among the advantages promised by “a well constructed union,” Madison wrote, “none deserves to be more accurately developed than its tendency to break and control the violence of faction.” By 1787, faction or party — the terms were interchangeable in 18thcentury English — had reduced politics in both the states and the nation to a condition of near chaos. The national government, the Continental Congress, in particular had become a byword for incompetence and impotence. Madison accordingly sought “a republican remedy for the diseases most incident to republican government.” The young Virginian did not propose to accomplish his goal by eliminating faction or party. That, he believed, would be impossible and undesirable — impossible because the causes of faction were “sown in the nature of man” and undesirable because faction could not be suppressed without destroying liberty itself. Instead, he proposed to construct a government that would fairly represent all the various factions and interest groups in American society, in part in the hope that none would then be able to gain an undue ascendancy over the others. But, more important, Madison did not assume that extending “the sphere of government,” as he described it, would become a formula for factional or partisan gridlock. That state of affairs could be avoided by devising systems of representation that would elect men of discernment and reputation to public office — and in those days they would all be men — and make them responsible, in the manner that an umpire calls balls and strikes, for framing wise and impartial laws to safeguard the “more perfect union” that had been established by the Federal Constitution. At this point, some two and a quarter centuries later, we might ask how well Madison’s carefully crafted union is doing and what the “Father of the Constitution” himself might make of it. It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that he could only be sorely disappointed — for the all-too-obvious reason that the American political system is now clearly failing to break or control “the violence of faction.” With the exception of the state of national politics on the eve of the Civil War, at no point in the history of the republic have its political leaders seemed less capable of transcending their personal and partisan differences in order to make policies


that serve the common good — or, as Madison described it, “the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” And at no time, again excepting the Civil War era, has the tone of national politics ever been more disheartening and uncivil. It is true that some commentators today argue that contemporary politics are no worse than they were in the 1790s, during the emergence of the first American party system, and that the government continues to function more or less as Madison intended it to do. But to argue thus is to misunderstand, very badly, Madison’s politics and his hopes for the new nation. Had that truly been Madison’s intention, he would never have bothered at all to have labored so strenuously to replace the radically defective Articles of Confederation as the nation’s political system. Madison may have been an intellectual in politics, but he was also a practical politician. He desired, above all else, a government that could work in accordance with his republican ideals — and one that would make policy to address national problems. Were he with us today, Madison could easily identify many of the causes contributing to the current dysfunction of government — among them being the proliferation of factions to an extent inconceivable to anyone born in the 18th century and the growth of a lobbying industry that is funded with more than abundant means to permit its clients to manipulate the checks and balances that Madison designed to protect the rights of groups and individuals without paralyzing the legislative process at the same time. He would, moreover, deplore the extent to which many Supreme Court rulings have allowed religious organizations to influence public policy for particular or sectarian agendas. He would also truly lament the enormous growth in executive power created by the expansion of the nation’s military establishments and our almost constant involvement in wars over the past three quarters of a century. In response, Madison would call for a smaller government than we have today, but that is not to say that he would necessarily wish for a weaker government and one that was unable to translate the will of the majority into legislation to advance the public good. He would, almost certainly, seek reforms in campaign financing laws and in legislative redistricting — to avoid the problems arising from corruption and an excess of gerrymandering, both phenomena with which Madison was perfectly well acquainted. And he would also want the removal of informal super-majorities

With the exception of the state of national politics on the eve of the Civil War, at no point in the history of the republic have its political leaders seemed less capable of transcending their personal and partisan differences in order to make policies that serve the common good — or, as Madison described it, “the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” in the conduct of the nation’s business, especially in the U.S. Senate, where Madison thought that proportional representation, and not state equality, should prevail. There is no place in Madison’s political philosophy for the filibuster as it has evolved in recent years. The abuse of that tactic by the Senate now threatens to take us far from James Madison’s republic and bring us uncomfortably closer to the system favored by John C. Calhoun, the quintessential architect of the minority veto. And any student of

American political history should understand how dangerous that development could be. Finally, Madison might look for more evidence of “virtue” in the American people themselves. And by “virtue” he meant not so much moral rectitude in sexual matters — though he might see room for improvement on that score too — as he did a willingness among people and leaders alike to set aside personal and selfish goals in order to serve “the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.” Even in 1787, Madison was well aware that virtuous and enlightened leaders would not always be in steady supply. Indeed, he explicitly said as much in the 10th Federalist and he repeated the point more eloquently in his 51st Federalist essay: “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” Madison, nevertheless, hoped that a “well constructed union” could operate in ways that might compensate for a shortage of angels and “virtue.” He was, alas, mistaken. Madison’s system needs reform and the American people need to regain their “virtue.” J.C.A. Stagg is professor of history and editor in chief of the Papers of James Madison at the University of Virginia. In March, Cambridge University Press will publish his book “The War of 1812: Conflict for a Continent.”



Layers of diplomacy needed in new Egypt


few items came across the desk last week that underscore the challenge America faces in making policy toward the Islamist parties that are emerging as the early beneficiaries of the uprisings across the Arab world. The first was a news article about the Jan. 11 meeting in Cairo between Bill Burns, a deputy secretary of state, and Muhammad Morsi, the chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, during which Morsi said his party “believes in the importance of U.S.Egyptian relations,” but said they “must be balanced.” Two days later came a report from the Middle East Media Research Institute, which tracks the Arab media, about recent writings on the Muslim Brotherhood website, Ikhwanonline .com. It said the site “contains articles with anti-Semitic motifs, including Holocaust denial and descriptions of the ‘Jewish character’ as covetous, exploitative, and a source of evil in human society. … Among these are articles calling to kill Zionists and praising the Sept. 9, 2011, attack on the Israeli Embassy in Cairo — which one article called a landmark of the Egyptian revolution.” Finally, came the news that Naguib Sawiris — an Egyptian telecommunications mogul and Coptic Christian who is the founder of one of Egypt’s new secular, liberal parties — was being charged with “contempt of religion” for re-tweeting images from last June that show Mickey Mouse with a full beard and wearing a traditional Islamic robe and Minnie Mouse wearing a full-face veil with just slits for her eyes. There are two ways to read these news reports. One is that the Brotherhood and other Islamists are cleverly hoodwinking the naive foreigners, feeding them the lines they want to hear. The other is that the Islamists never expected to be dominating Egypt’s new Parliament and they are trying to figure out how to reconcile some of their ideology, with all of their new responsibilities. My view is that both can be — and are — true at the same time. In my mind, we all have to guard against lazy happy talk about the rise of the Islamist parties in Egypt (“I’ve met with them; they all seem reasonable”) and lazy determinism (“Just read what they say in Arabic. They clearly have a secret plan to take over Egypt”). U.S. policy needs to be based on the assumption that, like all parties, Islamist parties contain moderates, centrists and hard-liners — and, in the case of the Muslim Brotherhood, lots of small businessmen. Which wing will dominate as they assume the responsibilities of governing is still an open question. America needs to offer the Islamists firm, quiet (you can easily trigger a nationalist backlash) and patient engagement that says: “We believe in free and fair elections, human rights, women’s rights, minority rights, free markets, civilian control of the military, religious tolerance and the Egypt-Israel peace treaty, and we will offer assistance to anyone who respects those principles.” Egypt is not destined to be Iran, but the Muslim Brotherhood is not destined to be the Muslim version of Christian Democrats either. There is an evolution under way — this is a very plastic moment — and our best chance of having an effect is to make sure we deal in a principled way with the Islamists (and also, by the way, with Israel, as the Islamists will be watching for any double standard) and with the Egyptian Army. The Egyptian Army is also trying to figure out its role in this new Egypt. It is balancing its desire to protect its economic interests, avoid prosecution for any killings of demonstrators and maintain its status as guardian of Egypt’s secular nationalist tradition. We need the Egyptian Army to play the constructive role that the Turkish Army once played and not become the Pakistani Army. In short, the days of dealing with Egypt with one phone call to one man just one time are over. This is going to require really, really, really sophisticated diplomacy with multiple players — seven days a week. — Thomas Friedman is a columnist for The New York Times.

Robin’s ‘Reactionary Mind’ ignites Internet battlefield “The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edumund Burke to Sarah Palin” By Corey Robin (Oxford University Press, USA, 304 pgs., $29.95) By Jennifer Schuessler New York Times News Service

For Corey Robin the author it’s been a bruising few months. Shortly after his essay collection “The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism From Edmund Burke to Sarah Palin” appeared last fall, The New York Times Book Review published a review by Sheri Berman dismissing the book as “a diatribe that preaches to the converted,” “so filled with exaggeration and invective that the reader’s eyes roll.” Then in late December, The New York Review of Books ran a withering assessment by Mark Lilla, who dismissed the book as “history as WPA mural,” if not the left-wing scholarly equivalent of Glenn Beck’s blackboard scribblings. For Corey Robin the blogger, however, the past few months have been quite excellent. Since starting CoreyRobin .com in June, Robin, an associate professor of political science at Brooklyn College, has established himself as a lively and combative online presence. He has racked up links from prominent bloggers and this month won the 2011 “best writer” award from Cliopatra, the blog of the History News Network, which called him “the quintessential public intellectual for the digital age.” So when Lilla’s review hit the newsstands, Robin’s online admirers were ready to pounce, setting off a cycle of learned (and often lengthy) commentary and counterreviews that trickled up from smaller blogs like U.S. Intellectual History to big ones like Crooked Timber. As one commenter on U.S. Intellectual History wrote, “Bashing Lilla’s review of Robin’s book seems to be the newest Internet meme.” If Robin seems to be enjoying the online tumult, filing regular updates on his blog, he professes to remain puzzled by the hostile reviews that touched it all off. “I don’t know what is driving the critics,” Robin, 44, said in a recent interview at his apartment in New York City. “The

argument itself just bothers them, and I don’t know why.” “The Reactionary Mind” certainly cuts hard against the common view that the radical populist conservatism epitomized by Sarah Palin represents a sharp break with the cautious, reasonable, moderate, pragmatic conservatism inaugurated by the 18th-century British statesman Edmund Burke. For Robin even Burke, that great critic of the French Revolution, wasn’t a Burkean moderate, but a reactionary who celebrated the sublimity of violence and denounced the inability of flabby traditional elites to defend the existing order. This counterrevolutionary spirit, Robin argues, animates every conservative, from the Southern slaveholders to Ayn Rand to Antonin Scalia, to name just a few of the figures he pulls into his often slashing analysis. Commitment to a limited government, devotion to the free market, or a wariness of change, Robin writes, are not the essence of conservatism but mere “byproducts” of one essential idea — “that some are fit, and thus ought, to rule others.” These are fighting words,

and to some of Robin’s readers they serve a useful purpose. “By the standards of intellectual history it may be found wanting,” the political scientist Alan Wolfe, who gave “The Reactionary Mind” an appreciative if mixed review on The New Republic’s website, said in an interview. “But the argument is valuable at this moment because Robin’s analysis helps explain why there is so much fury and resentment in our politics.” But to Lilla, a professor of humanities at Columbia, what he sees as the incoherent Manicheanism of Robin’s vision is more a symptom of our polarized politics than an explanation of it. “He is interested in an anthropological, or maybe entomological, way of looking at how these little bugs are behaving or changing,” Lilla said. “But he can’t take conservative ideas seriously as ideas. Everything is just positioning.” Robin counters that his own arguments are the ones that aren’t being taken seriously — or even really being read. The true subject of “The Reactionary Mind,” he said, isn’t the eternal sameness of conservatism but the way it transforms

itself in response to threats to existing hierarchies, often by borrowing from the very movements it seeks to oppose. “We see the left initiating a politics, whether it’s the French Revolution or abolition,” he said. “What’s fascinating to me is how the right reacts to that, how it learns from the left a whole capacity for political agency.” Robin, who was the lead organizer for the graduate student union campaign at Yale while getting his doctorate there in the 1990s, dates his fascination with the right to 2000, when he got a magazine assignment to write about former free-marketeers who had become sharp critics of capitalism. That assignment yielded some juicy sound bites, as when William F. Buckley (who was not one of the apostates) told Robin that conservative fixation on the market was as boring and repetitious as sex. But it also opened his eyes to what he calls “the agonies and ecstasies of the conservative mind,” a deep political romanticism that colleagues on the left often fail to appreciate. Take, for example, the war in Iraq, which Robin argues was less about oil than the neoconservative longing for a project of national greatness more noble than simply making money. “When I said that the neocon project was not about defending oil, that it was much more a Kulturkampf that goes to the heart of conservatism’s deep ambivalence about the free market, people on the left didn’t buy it,” he said. “To them it’s all just the pursuit of economic interest.” As for his argument with Lilla, the two do find at least one point of agreement: There are few if any true Burkean political actors in U.S. history, and certainly none anywhere near the Republican presidential primaries. Lilla does see real Burkeans in Europe. But to Robin there is no actually existing Burkeanism anywhere, making those who cite the ideal of a reasonable, pragmatic, nonreactionary conservatism guilty of the kind of utopianism the left is more commonly faulted for. “Their whole claim to credibility is, as William F. Buckley put it, ‘We are the politics of reality,’” Robin said. “But if you can only find two examples across two centuries, it’s not a political theory anymore.”

‘Wanted Women’ looks at opposing sides of terror “Wanted Women: Faith, Lies & the War on Terror: The Lives of Ayaan Hirsi Ali & Aafia Siddiqui” By Deborah Scroggins, (HarperCollins) 539 pgs., $27.99 By Dwight Garner New York Times News Service

If you were the Franklin Mint and wanted to issue a set of four “collectible” dinner plates devoted to “The Women of the War of Terror,” whose faces would appear on them? Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush’s national security adviser during 9/11, would surely smile up from one. As would Lynndie England, “the lady with the leash,” as Mick Jagger sang on the 2005 Rolling Stones song “Dangerous Beauty.” Plates three and four? They would almost certainly depict Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Aafia Siddiqui, the subjects of Deborah Scroggins’ sober and provocative new book, “Wanted Women.” Scroggins has composed a dual biography of these dissimilar Muslim women, intricately braiding their stories. They are such opposites that, as the author memorably observes, “Like the bikini and

the burka or the virgin and the whore, you couldn’t quite understand one without understanding the other.” If you are wondering who is the bikini (and thus the whore) in that formulation, Scroggins leaves little doubt that it is Hirsi Ali, whom her book relentlessly attacks, sometimes persuasively but often tendentiously. But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Hirsi Ali is, you will recall, a Somalian-born former member of the Dutch parliament. She is the author of the best-selling memoir “Infidel” (2007) and, once seen, hard to forget. In the words of the British journalist Andrew Anthony she “looks like a fashion model and talks like a public intellectual.” Raised as a Muslim fundamentalist in Kenya, where she was subjected to female genital cutting, she escaped to the West and has emerged as an incendiary critic of Islam, especially on issues regarding women. She is married now to the British historian Niall Ferguson. Siddiqui’s story is just as unlikely, and seemingly made for a tense Kathryn Bigelow

film. Born in Pakistan, she left for the United States to study neuroscience and earned degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brandeis University. She married a Pakistani doctor who was accepted to study for a master’s degree at Harvard, and had three children. She also became a nearly psychotic anti-Semite, and began dabbling in pro-jihad organizations in the United States. In 2003 the FBI named her the only known female operative of al-Qaida. Scroggins is a veteran reporter whose very good first book, “Emma’s War” (2002), was about a young British aid worker and tarnished ide-

alism in Sudan. In “Wanted Women,” she seeks — and abundantly finds — what she calls the “weird symmetry” between her subjects. The bulk of “Wanted Women” is sturdy, well-reported, boots-on-the-ground biography. Scroggins moves through these women’s lives, seizing upon piquant details. Thus we find Hirsi Ali as a young woman in Nairobi, where her family had moved, devouring Western writers from Dostoyevsky to Jacqueline Susann and thinking: “White people were always having these wonderful adventures that we couldn’t have, either because we weren’t allowed or because we couldn’t afford to.”




An ‘un-Korean’ ‘I Want My MTV’ offers an inside look novelist tackles Dear Leader “I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Revolution” By Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum (Dutton, 608 pgs., $29.95)

By Rene Rodriguez

“The Orphan Master’s Son” By Adam Johnson (Random House, 464 pgs., $26) By Reed Johnson Los Angeles Times

SAN FRANCISCO — The Dear Leader is dead — long live the Dear Leader! That, of course, would be North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, who transitioned into the afterlife last month, leaving behind his long-suffering nation in a mass state of camera-ready mourning. But the Dear Leader — very alive and more or less well — looms as a menacing presence over “The Orphan Master’s Son,” a new novel by Adam Johnson set in a country that, along with Iran, is one of the planet’s foremost pariah states. Like many Westerners, Johnson initially saw Kim Jong Il as a kind of comic-opera figure and Korea’s Cold War-vintage society as a potential wellspring of satiric material. “I must admit that at the beginning the absurdities and the ironies attracted me,” Johnson said last week at a coffeehouse in the fashionably bohemian Cole Valley neighborhood where he lives with his wife and three young children. Several years ago, he started writing a short story inspired partly by Kim Jong Il’s extravagant eccentricity, “his jet skis and his sushi habit, and he has a whole division of girls to pleasure him.” But that Comedy Central scenario changed as the author began to grasp the Orwellian dimensions of the regime’s power and the hopelessness and fear that pervade its citizens’ lives. “It’s not just the Kim Jong Il bouffant hairdo,” said Johnson, whose previous short stories and novels have evinced a taste for the bizarre and humorously tragic that reminds reviewers of Kurt Vonnegut and T. Coraghessan Boyle. “When I sit down and talk to people about what I discovered about that place … people are horrified about the gulags and the starvation and things like that.” Johnson, 44, a Stanford University associate professor in creative writing and author of a well-reviewed previous novel, “Parasites Like Us,” spent years doing research on the notoriously insular Asian nation. He also took a trip there in 2007 to gain insight for his book, a tragicomic, “Manchurian Candidate” mutant of a thriller, romance, bildungsroman and Victorian social novel, spiked with DNA samples of “The Bourne Identity,” “Casablanca,” “David Copperfield” and “1984.” Divided into two parts — “The Biography of Jun Do” and “The Confessions of Commander Ga” — the book traffics in themes of mistaken and stolen identity, loyalty, honor and the struggle of individuals to find personal meaning in a country where individualism is virtually illegal and the collective is all. Its main characters are Jun Do (a play on “John Doe”), a smart, professional, vaguely cynical young man who was raised in an orphanage run by his father and earns his keep as a soldier, spy and kidnapper; and the beautiful, beloved film actress Sun Moon, a despondent domestic prisoner in the luxurious home where she lives with the fearsome national hero Commander Ga. In a Washington Post rave review last week, novelist and critic David Ignatius said Johnson’s work makes “the reader feel as if he is in Chongjin, where starving people ate the bark off trees; or atop Mount Taesong with the elite of Pyongyang, whose existence is a mix of sadism and whimsy; or with the masses who are bombarded day and night with the propaganda of North Korea’s alternate reality.” Envisioning this parallel world was no easy literary task, Johnson said. Because reliable insider accounts seldom leak from behind North

Korea’s propaganda fortress, the author turned for detailed information to the handful of books written by escaped dissidents (notably Kang CholHwan), to Pierre Rigoulot’s “The Aquariums of Pyongyang” and to Western foreign correspondents.

Inner lives Possibly Johnson’s greatest challenge was trying to infiltrate the inner lives of characters in a country where self-censorship and blending in with the anonymous throng are essential for survival. The author soon realized that the master narratives of Western literature — that each of us is the central character in a unique, private drama, overcoming obstacles as we strive toward self-realization — had little bearing on people who can’t be the authors of their own life stories, which are largely dictated by the state. Reading online translations of North Korea’s governmentrun paper Rodong Sinmun, Johnson said he came to see that in North Korea there is only one central character, Kim Jong Il, and before that his father, Kim Il Sung, “and then there are 23 million secondary characters.” In such a narrative, orphanhood emerges as a metaphor both for the abandoned North Korean nation and for the human condition. Like Jun Do, a number of Johnson’s characters have been hyper-talented freaks and misfits, such as the hero of his short story “Teen Sniper,” about a 15-year-old elite marksman on the Palo Alto police force and his robot best friend. A main current running through his fiction has been what New York Times book critic Michiko Kakutani, reviewing his 2002 short-story collection “Emporium,” described as “a melancholy melody of longing and loss: a Salingeresqe sense of adolescent alienation and confusion, combined with an acute awareness of the randomness of life and the difficulty of making and sustaining connections.” Johnson wouldn’t argue the point. But he doesn’t see his invented worlds as “surreal,” an adjective sometimes attached to them. “The true absurdities to me are, like, that two people love each other and they break up,” he said. “Or that a kid needs both his parents and he doesn’t have them. Or that we reach out to someone and it’s repelled. Like, the most basic human things are thwarted in everyone’s experience in some way. And we take that for granted, like, ‘Oh, that’s life.’”

Some of the fun facts recounted in “I Want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Revolution”: • When an Epic Records executive started showing a video from a new group called Culture Club for the song “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?,” everyone who watched it said, “Man, she’s really ugly.” • On the shoot of the first video for The Police’s “Synchronicity” album, lead singer Sting told the director, “Just keep the camera on the money,” and pointed to himself. It was the last album the group would ever record. • MTV programmers didn’t think much of Guns N’ Roses’ first video “Welcome to the Jungle” and initially aired it only once or twice after midnight. Then David Geffen called the channel and requested the clip get more airplay. A couple of weeks later, Guns N’ Roses became superstars. • On the set of the Black or White video, director John Landis had to keep asking Michael Jackson to stop grabbing his crotch and rubbing himself on camera. “Madonna does it. Prince does it,” Jackson pointed out. “You’re not Madonna

or Prince,” Landis replied. “You’re Mickey Mouse.” • When Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares to U” beat out Madonna’s “Vogue” for the Video of the Year award, Madonna was furious (“Sinead O’Connor has about as much sex appeal as Venetian blinds”) and Sinead gloated (“I was very pleased to beat the s--- out of her.”) Every page of this fat, addictive, ridiculously entertaining book, which covers the rise and fall of MTV from 1981-1992, is overstuffed with such anecdotes. Authors Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum interviewed more than 400 musicians, directors, executives and VJs to create an unusually candid oral history of the music video channel and its enormous impact on pop culture. Although the writers couldn’t land any of the really big names — Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Madonna — they did get enough people who knew and worked closely with the superstars to make their absence irrelevant. Prince, for example, was “cuckoo paranoid,” barely spoke to anyone outside his inner circle, directed most of his videos himself via passive-aggressive tactics, showed up to meetings wearing different-colored high heel shoes and used so much smoke on the sets of his clips that everyone got diarrhea. Springsteen was initially suspicious of music videos, but he eventually embraced

them — only on his terms, though. For his famed video for “Brilliant Disguise” — a single shot that gradually pulls closer to his face as he plays the song on a guitar — director Meiert Avis scoured homes in New Jersey until he found one with a kitchen big enough to film in. But the day before the shoot, with the trucks carrying equipment already in route, the man who lived at the house returned from a business trip and nixed the whole thing. Panicked, the director called the National Guard and found a kitchen at an abandoned military base big enough to house the production. Although it focuses exclusively on the channel, “I Want My MTV” doubles as a cultural history of the 1980s, showing how the network influenced everything from fashion trends to hairstyles to filmmaking. The book argues that trends such as rap music and hip-hop

might have never entered the mainstream if MTV executives, who hailed from rockoriented radio, hadn’t gradually relented and started playing videos by black artists (most notably, of course, by Michael Jackson, but also Run-DMC, MC Hammer and Public Enemy). Pretty much every member of Generation X watched MTV obsessively at some period in their lives, so reading about the time Bobby Brown dropped a vial of cocaine on the stage while performing at the Video Music Awards or the uproar that greeted Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” video feels like leafing through a yearbook of your youth. For readers who know MTV primarily as the home of “Jersey Shore” and “16 and Pregnant,” the book will seem like a work of science-fiction. Yes, there was a time when MTV aired nothing but music, when VJs were huge stars (and treated horribly by their bosses), when President Bill Clinton went on the channel to secure the youth vote, when the world premiere of a new video was the sort of thing you marked down on your calendar. Like the era it covers, “I Want My MTV” is filled with excess, drugs, egos and tragedy. It is also a legacy to the music of that decade, some of it garbage, but a lot of it better than you might remember. It also helps to explain the ambivalence most everyone feels about the era: The 1980s weren’t just something you lived through. They were also something you survived.

‘Running the Rift’ finds hope amid horrors of war “Running the Rift” By Naomi Benaron (Algonquin Books, 384 pgs., $24.95) By Lisa McLendon McClatchy-Tribune News Service

When a book wins an award for promoting social justice — in this case, the Bellwether Prize, established by writer Barbara Kingsolver — one might expect it to be heavy-handed or preachy. “Running the Rift” is neither of those: it’s a nuanced, complex portrait of people in a nation riven by conflict. When a book is set during genocide — in this case, the Rwandan genocide of the 1990s — one might expect it to be irredeemably depressing. “Running the Rift” is unsparing in its depiction of the hatred and violence, but doesn’t let that crowd out the goodness of family and friendship and the power of hope.

The book isn’t a war story; it’s the story of a boy growing up in Africa, a boy who can run very fast, fast enough to dream of Olympic gold. Jean Patrick Nkuba, the runner, is a Tutsi, a distinction that shouldn’t matter but does. Because of who he is, his path is set in ways he can’t control. Because people are focused on the distinction between Hutu and Tutsi, and are willing to kill because of it, his country is forever changed. As a boy, Jean Patrick loses his father not to war, but to a car accident. He and his family leave their home at the school where his father taught to move in with an uncle, but because Jean Patrick is a skilled student as well as a gifted athlete, he is able to continue his schooling. And he has the love and support of his extended family in doing so. As he pursues higher education — and moves up the

ladder of competitive track — he becomes more aware of the tenuous political situation in Rwanda. He watches with alarm as longstanding tensions flare between Tutsi and Hutu; he must tolerate the casual slur of “cockroach” applied to all Tutsi. And he must make a difficult choice when an opportunity presents itself: should he take a Hutu ID card to ease his way? As Jean Patrick closes in on his goal of the Olympics, he realizes that there is far more to it than winning a medal for Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions


himself. “Run as if your life depended on it,” a friend’s father tells him. “As if all our lives depended on it.” “Running the Rift” does not spare readers the horrors of the violence in Rwanda, but never loses sight of the beauty — the love and, yes, the hope — that persists even amid such a desperate situation.

‘Hope: A Tragedy’: Anne Frank, writing in an attic ‘Hope: A Tragedy’ By Shalom Auslander (Riverhead Books, 292 pgs., $26.95.) By Janet Maslin New York Times News Service

Tyler Hicks / New York Times News Service

F/A-18F jets fly above the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis in the North Arabian Sea on Jan. 8.

Fighter jets Continued from F1 McDowell’s career has followed the arc of this changing role. At the outset of the war in 2001, U.S. aircraft often attacked in ways that maximized violence, including carpet bombing, dropping cluster munitions and conducting weeks of strikes with precision-guided munitions. Flying in an F-14 squadron from the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, McDowell dropped 6,000 pounds of munitions in the war’s first week, destroying Taliban aircraft and vehicles at Herat airfield and striking training camps and barracks in Kandahar province. He had already flown two years in Kosovo and Iraq, where in 32 combat sorties he dropped 35,000 pounds of guided munitions, including on Serbian barracks that were struck when the largest number of soldiers was believed to be inside. “Our culture is a fangs-out, kill-kill-kill culture,” he said. “That’s how we train. And back then, the mindset was: maximum number of enemy killed, maximum number of bombs on deck, to achieve a maximum psychological effect.” That was then. A little more than a decade on, his most common mission is what is called an “overwatch,” scanning the ground via infrared sensors and radioing what he sees to troops below. In 953 close-air support sorties by the 44 F/A-18 Super Hornets aboard the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis, from where McDowell flies now, aircraft dropped ordnance only 17 times. They flew low-or midelevation passes 115 times. The shifts in missions and tactics partly reflect adaptations by the Taliban. But guided by complex rules of engagement and by doctrine emphasizing proportionality and restraint, they also reflect what McDowell calls “a different mentality.” These days, striving for certitude in target selection and minimizing civilian casualties have become standard practice. Projecting power nonlethally is routine. Dropping bombs is not. “So much has changed from when I was here the first time,” he said, looking down at Afghanistan on a six-hour flight early last week. “Now I prefer not dropping — if I can accomplish the mission other ways.”

A day’s work McDowell’s workday began at 4:30 a.m., when he woke in a small stateroom and readied for a long sortie. At 5:30 a.m., he gathered for his preflight briefing. Lt. Cmdr. Fran Catalina, a pilot who would be one of his wingmen, offered a reminder that the Afghan war, in its 11th winter, was grinding on, and that the reach of the Navy’s carrier aircraft was welcome — even far inland. “There were 43 enemy-initiated attacks in the last reporting period,” he said, showing a map. “Lots of kinetics yesterday.” Each pilot and weapons-systems officer, who flies in the rear seat of an F/A-18F, was assigned a mission supporting a different ground unit. At 7:15 a.m., after donning ejection-seat torso harnesses and survival vests and collecting their pistols, they climbed into their aircraft, which waited, armed and fueled, on the flight deck. The carrier was

steaming into the wind in the North Arabian Sea. Shortly before 8 a.m., after preflight checks, McDowell taxied to one of the ship’s four catapults, where sailors attached a hold-back bar to the jet’s nose wheel. He pushed Vengeance 13’s dual engines to full power. The engines roared. The aircraft shook. He saluted a sailor on the flight deck. The sailor saluted back. “Five seconds,” McDowell said. He raised his chin, pressed the back of his helmet against the seat and flexed his muscles as he braced for the rush. The bar released. The steamdriven catapult slammed forward. Vengeance 13 accelerated to 180 miles an hour in about 200 feet. It vaulted off the carrier’s bow. Perhaps two seconds had passed. He had just experienced 3.5 Gs, and he was flying, just above the waves. “And we’re airborne,” he said. McDowell is scheduled to assume command of an F/A18 squadron in May. He is 38, a graduate of the Naval Academy and a former test pilot. His call-sign — Keebler — reflects what he calls his elfin stature (he is 5 feet 7 inches tall) and insatiable sweet tooth. The nickname also suggests a compliment. Shorter pilots can typically withstand greater gravitational forces when in fast minimum-radius turns or the dives, rolls and climbs involved in dogfighting and strafing. McDowell, who has withstood seven Gs without losing consciousness, is known, in his trade, as “a G-monster.” He flew level at 500 feet for seven miles, banked left and climbed to 25,000 feet, where he was joined by two other Super Hornets. The trio headed north for their first mission, to support the company freshly landed in the valley in Kandahar. To get there, they flew toward a designated slot of airspace in western Pakistan. Known as “the Boulevard,” the corridor is a busy air bridge — the route through which Pakistan allows NATO aircraft access to Afghanistan. For planes from air bases in the Persian Gulf, this is the way around Iran. McDowell’s flight, commanded by Capt. Dell Bull in Vengeance 11, overtook slower aircraft heading to the war. Around 9:15 a.m., the flight crossed over the Afghan border. An Air Force KC-10 tanker waited ahead, flying a wide circle over a Central Asian desert. It dragged a hose ending in a basket surrounding a small valve. It was time to refuel. Vengeance 13 went first. After Vengeance 11 had refueled, too, the two aircraft broke off and headed to their mission; Vengeance 12 would join them later. Dell checked in with the ground controller, who said the company had taken fire earlier in the morning. For about an hour, the aircraft used infrared sensors to watch buildings and the canyon, covering the soldiers’ movement. The Taliban did not show themselves.

A new mindset After refueling a second time, the jets checked in with a ground controller near the Arghandab River, the area that in late 2010 was a high-profile part of the offensive to displace the Taliban. Before that offensive, the American presence along the river had been light. Now,

from the air, the military footprint was clear. The river was a network of outposts and bases with high walls, many watched over by cameras mounted on tethered blimp-like balloons. If one place might suggest the way McDowell’s role on the battlefield had changed over his career, this was it. He flew a slow left turn, pointing to an area where several days before an infantry patrol had skirmished with Afghan gunmen. The gunmen had fired from a field not far from Forward Operating Base Wilson and then dashed into a cluster of mud-walled buildings, he said. McDowell had arrived overhead within minutes. What happened next framed the contrast between the old practices and the new.

To bomb or not to bomb? The infantrymen talked him toward the building. Then they marked it by firing a smoke grenade at its walls. Above the river, McDowell fixed his infrared sensor on the compound, sharing the video feed with a ground controller, who confirmed he was looking at the right place. What to do? In 1999, late in the war in Kosovo, McDowell said pilots routinely killed. On one sortie, in the rush to stop Serbs from killing ethnic Albanians, McDowell dropped a 1,000pound, laser-guided bomb at the mouth of a tunnel that five trucks carrying Serbian soldiers had just entered. The shrapnel and pressure wave from the blast probably killed every man.

A little more than a dozen years later, he was above a home in which at least two Taliban fighters had taken shelter after firing on a U.S. patrol. But he did not know who else might be inside. Neither he nor the soldiers requested clearance for an airstrike. “What if we hit that house and two guys inside had guns and we get eight kids, too?” he said. High over the Arghandab River, he banked over the home that he and the rules had spared. Referring to the targeting display in the cockpit, he pointed out its proximity to other homes, and described the limits of what he knew about socalled “patterns of life” — the rhythm of the human activity at the compound where Taliban fighters hid. “I didn’t think about these things at all in Kosovo,” he said. The reach of a nuclear carrier, augmented with aerial tankers, made it possible for strike aircraft to penetrate 800 miles from the ship. But what was the point of projecting power if it was not projected responsibly? The changes, he said, have been good. “I would say that in my younger days I would have been frustrated, because we have ordnance and we know where the enemy is, and I would have wanted permission to strike that building,” he said. “Did I feel frustrated this time? Not in the slightest. It is a different mission. It calls for a different mentality.”

At the start of Shalom Auslander’s staggeringly nervy new novel “Hope: A Tragedy,” a doleful Jewish non-farmer named Solomon Kugel climbs fearfully into the attic of his recently acquired farmhouse. He hopes the tapping sounds in the attic are being made by nothing worse than mice. No such luck. The tapping is coming from a typewriter. And the typist, a stooped, foul-mouthed old lady who does not suffer fools gladly, is the single person about whom Jewish writers most avidly fantasize: Anne Frank. Other fiction writers have gotten this fresh with Anne Frank. But they don’t get much funnier. Auslander (not to be confused with Nathan Englander, whose “What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank” is imminent) is neither a voyeur nor a romantic when it comes to conjuring Anne. He is an absurdist with a deep sense of gravitas. He brings to mind Woody Allen, Joseph Heller and — oxymoron here — a libido-free version of Philip Roth. “While there’s never a good time to find Anne Frank in your attic, this was a particularly bad time,” Auslander writes. The Kugels are recent transplants from New York City to the countryside; they have a dangerously nosy tenant who demands storage space in the attic where Anne is liv-

ing; and Kugel’s mother lives with the family, pretending to be dying. She is also obsessed with the Holocaust. She travels with baggage that she will never unpack, “just in case.” The only item for which she will make an exception is a large framed picture of Alan Dershowitz that she hangs on the wall. When Kugel contemplates calling the police about Anne Frank, he can imagine his Roth-worthy mother saying: “What’s the matter, you didn’t have Dr. Mengele’s number? He doesn’t make house calls?” When he recalls being taken on a tour of Holocaust sites as a young boy, he remembers his mother’s fury when he smiled for a snapshot taken in front of a crematorium. “You ruined the whole concentration camp for me, you know that?” she scolded. “You ruined the whole damn camp.” It’s a tall order for Auslander to raise an essentially comic novel to this level of moral contemplation. Yet “Hope: A Tragedy” succeeds shockingly well. For every stroke of facetiousness here, there is a laceratingly tough appraisal of the way suffering is made holy. “Me, I’m the sufferer,” Anne finally says. “I’m the dead girl. I’m Miss Holocaust, 1945. The prize is a crown of thorns and eternal victimhood. Jesus was a Jew, Mr. Kugel, but I’m the Jewish Jesus.” And Kugel, nebbish that he is, can go toe to toe with her, in ways sure to polarize Auslander’s readers. This book never aspires to be pious or politically correct. “Six million he kills,” Kugel tells himself, “and this one gets away.”

Following his father’s


The image officer with a lot to fix By Louise Story and Gretchen Morgenson New York Times News Service

It’s showtime for Anne Finucane. Her co-star on this day, Bill Clinton, is waiting offstage. The audience shifts in its seats. The spotlight goes up and … action! It’s a Thursday in early December, at a conference center near Orlando, Fla., and Finucane is busy shaping an image. Or, rather, trying to reshape one. This choreographed interview with the former president before a select group of businesspeople is, in fact, part of a much larger effort to rehabilitate one of the most demonized corporations in the United States. That company is Finucane’s employer, Bank of America. Finucane Until recently, this colossus, assembled through a heady run of acquisitions, was the nation’s largest bank. But since the 2008-09 financial crisis, no big bank has lost more of its luster. Today, Bank of America is often held up as a symbol of all that’s wrong with banking, from stick-it-to-’em fees to dubious home foreclosures. Investors have given it a black eye, too. Last year, its share price plummeted 55 percent, making it the biggest loser among the Dow industrials. The bank remains under unusually close scrutiny by regulators. See Finucane / G2

Steve Gibson stands in the doorway of the Red Hanger, the crossroad of his past and present with Gibson Air Service.

• Steve Gibson brings back Gibson Air Service — and its nostalgia — to Bend airport By Rachael Rees

“I was in diapers on the floor of this hangar,” recalled Gibson as he expressed his excitement in bringing back the company name after a longtime absence.

The Bulletin


hen Steve Gibson walked into the Red Hanger at Bend airport in 2009, he entered through the same door that housed his father’s airplane mechanic shop 30 years before. “I remember all of the mechanics working here for hours,” he said. “My dad would build airplanes from the ground up.” Gibson dreamed for years about bringing back Gibson Air Service, the business his father started more than a half century ago. In November, the 57-year-old Bend resident resurrected Gibson Air Service in the old red Quonset hut at the Bend Municipal Airport on Powell Butte Highway. “Every time I’d wash an airplane or change the oil I’d get to go fly it around the patch,” he said, referring to the designated flight pattern. “I was the little kid that hung out with a big smile on my face and got to fly everybody’s airplanes.” Gibson estimates he’s spent more than 8,000 hours in the air. When he wasn’t flying, he said he was either helping his dad in the shop or eating sandwiches with the pilots and listening to their tales. “My folks started the first FBO (fixed-base operator) on the field here in 1950,” he said. “Dad and mom pret-

ty much built it. There were only two hangars and an office, and that was of course where we lived.” Gibson said he decided to restart Gibson Air Service for the nostalgia and to bring back his family’s legacy. While it will not serve as Bend airport’s FBO, the company will offer airplane maintenance and flight instruction through a company partner. “I’m looking forward to hangar flying, when people come in, drink coffee and talk about the good old days,” Gibson said.

Dear Starbucks: A penny for your thoughts • Tall cup of black coffee now costs Manhattanites an annoying $2.01 By Jeff Sommer New York Times News Service

A “tall” Starbucks coffee now costs $2.01, with tax. Tony Cenicola New York Times News Service

Strong coffee gets me out of bed in the morning. I start gulping it at home, and after a train ride into Penn Station I usually stop at a Starbucks in Times Square for another jolt. On Jan. 3, my first working day of the year, I got a jolt all right. So did hundreds of other Starbucks customers in Manhattan.

Until that morning, a “tall” cup of coffee — 12 ounces of joe — cost less than $2. In that blissful, prelapsarian time, you would hand over two $1 bills and get back coffee and some small change — 9 cents, actually, but it seemed inconsequential. I usually dropped the coins into the tip jar, not so much out of generosity but selfishness. Why carry those annoying coins in my pocket?

That was so naive. Now Starbucks is making a certain class of New Yorkers count pennies. On Jan. 3, without warning, it set the net price of a tall cup of coffee in Manhattan at precisely $2.01, including tax. Starbucks menu boards list the new price as $1.85. But when it’s time to pay, and when local taxes are added to the bill, a tall cup of coffee comes to $2.01. See Starbucks / G3

A glass of red wine poured from a tap at St. Michael’s Alley in Palo Alto, Calif. More restaurants are storing and serving their wines from tap systems because it’s preserved indefinitely and there is no wasted bottle, cork or foil.

Tapping into a wine trend By Jessica Yadegaran San Jose Mercury News

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Ten years ago, while restaurateur Mike Sabina and winemaker Dane Stark were working the Livermore Valley, Calif., harvest, the men had an oenophilic epiphany. Stark, of Page Mill Winery, was lamenting the high cost of bottling. If only wine, like beer, could live in a keg, he said. Restaurants could serve wines by the glass without having to chuck half-full bottles, and the industry could lower its carbon footprint. “It can,” Sabina said. “You use wine that’s stored in a keg when you top off your barrels during the aging process.” Duh. When it came time to build the bar in his Palo Alto, Calif., restaurant, St. Michael’s Alley, Sabina bought a draft beer tap system and converted it for wine. He replaced the galvanized steel lines with wine-friendly stainless steel and used nitrogen, an inert gas, to push the wine from keg to tap. By the end, Sabina had drilled through 29 inches of concrete to create a 95-foot run from the spouts at bar level to the refrigerated kegs stored underground. And he says it was worth every bead of sweat. “My only regret is that I only put in four lines,” he said. “This is simply the best way to serve wine.” When Sabina started his project, no one had heard of wines on tap. Now, ready-made systems can be spotted all over California, from Handles Gastropub in Pleasanton and Chop Bar in Berkeley, to Vino Vino in San Jose. Experts say it is a cheaper, fresher and greener way to serve wines by the glass. See Tap / G3

Anne Finucane, right, global strategy and marketing officer for Bank of America, with Caroline Kennedy, left, and Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, at a New England Council annual dinner in Boston.

DEEDS Deschutes County

Bill Brett The Boston Globe

Finucane Continued from G1 All of this — and more — poses daunting challenges for Finucane (pronounced finNEW-kin), one of the most powerful figures at Bank of America and, indeed, in U.S. banking. Yet given her position, it might come as a surprise that she isn’t a financial whiz or, for that matter, even a banker. Her official title is global strategy and marketing officer, but the designation only hints at her influence within the bank, on Wall Street, in Washington and beyond. Over a 17-year career at the bank and its predecessors, Finucane, 59, has spun a web of relationships in business, politics, the media and philanthropy. For years, she was a confidante of Kenneth Lewis, the executive who built Bank of America with a string of daring takeovers, and whose downfall is remembered as a pivotal moment in the financial crisis. Now she is a confidante of Lewis’ successor, Brian Moynihan, who has been struggling to turn this battleship around. Moynihan is the chief executive, but Finucane is, in effect, the chief image officer. “We all report to Anne,� Moynihan once joked. Finucane shrugs off such wisecracks. But she is serious about the challenges confronting the bank. For despite deep ties to Washington, as well as to Boston, where she and her husband, Mike Barnicle, are an A-list power couple, she isn’t having much fun these days. Yes, she’s tight with Rep. Barney Frank, one of the most powerful and colorful figures on Capitol Hill. Yes, she vacations on Cape Cod, near her friends the Kennedys. And, yes, she is a powerhouse on the charity circuit. But fixing Bank of America, in the eyes of the nation, is a tall order. Colleagues describe her as “blunt,� “brutal� and “a political operator;� on the positive side, they say she always has her ear close to the ground and is effective at getting what she wants. “This is not the best moment,� she said in early December. “This is the most complicated and the most challenging of my professional life.� She continued, saying that you can’t fix a reputation just with new slogans. “In order to repair reputation,� she said, “you have to repair the issues that underlie that.� Still, last week, the bank announced that it had begun reviewing its advertising and image strategy. In an interview, Finucane explained that the bank was operating in a “very distracted environment with a lot of fingerpointing and a lot of missteps.� She added: “I would like to demonstrate setting a new course, which Brian put in place, but we need to articulate.�

Before PR headaches By almost any measure, Bank of America has fallen hard. In 2008, before the crisis hit and taxpayers bailed it out, its brand was considered topnotch. It ranked 14th worldwide among all corporations, according to Millward Brown BrandZ, a brand database. Today, Bank of America is 92nd, well behind rivals like Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. No wonder Bank of America has become a punch line for Jay Leno. Last year, as protesters in Zuccotti Park waved signs disparaging the bank, even Brett Ratner’s crime caper film, “Tower Heist,� took a shot: At one point, Eddie Murphy, posing as a banker, tells someone that if you want

to wear a black leather hood and flagellate yourself, work at Bank of America. The joke alluded to the bank’s biggest business challenge, as well as its biggest PR headache: home mortgages. Five years after the housing market came unhinged, the bank still faces tens of billions of dollars in potential damages from lawsuits over mortgage investments that went bad, according to McCarthy Lawyer Links, a legal consulting firm. Most of those investments were sold by Countrywide Financial, the sub-prime mortgage giant it acquired amid the crisis. Bank of America and other lenders hope to cut a deal with state attorneys general over improper foreclosures. Finucane isn’t directly involved in the mortgage business or in the bank’s legal decision-making. But when a problem threatens the bank’s reputation, it lands in her lap. Sensing the public’s animosity toward banking, for instance, she persuaded Moynihan to eliminate overdraft fees on debit card purchases in 2010 and to reject those purchases instead. Other banks later introduced a less stringent version of that policy, prompted by new regulations. But she and Bank of America stumbled badly last fall with plans to impose a $5 monthly fee on customers who use debit cards for purchases. It was a PR disaster, and the bank quickly backpedaled. In Florida in December, Clinton brought up the nation’s mortgage mess at the private conference. He praised Bank of America’s efforts to ease mortgage terms for some troubled homeowners but said the lingering housing troubles represented a chain around the nation’s neck. “We’ve got to do something to clean these books up, and to do it in a hurry, in my opinion,� Clinton said. Stabilizing housing and dealing with foreclosures is vital for the entire economy, he contended. “I still think that’s the single most important thing we could do to loosen everyone up, go back to a free-market, full-employment economy and have the normal transactions occurring again,� he said. Finucane agreed. “Sounds like we need a workout deal,� she said flatly.

Fleeting era Few friends would have predicted that Finucane would go into banking. But in 1995, she joined Fleet Financial as head of corporate affairs and marketing. She soon discovered how dangerous shoddy lending could be. It turned out that Fleet had pushed high-risk and costly mortgages in the South. Georgia regulators eventually sued Fleet, accusing it of predatory lending; in 1993, the bank paid more than $100 million to settle the case. From her perch in Boston, Finucane tried to isolate the sub-prime problem. “I didn’t want it to define the company,� she recalled. But the damage was lasting. “We still remember how bad Fleet was,� said Diane Thompson, a lawyer with the National Consumer Law Center in Boston. “I think the general consensus is it was four or five years before it cleared from their brand for most people.� Amid that storm, Finucane also began spending more time helping Fleet expand through acquisitions. Each deal was accompanied by delicate negotiations with local regulators and elected officials, many of whom worried that the mergers sweeping the industry would cost jobs and hurt consumers.

Finucane deftly allayed such fears, said Thomas Ryan, former chief of the CVS Corp. and, for years, a member of Fleet’s and then Bank of America’s boards. “If we were buying a bank in Albany, she would meet with the mayor of Albany or the governor of New York and assure them about how we were going to operate the bank, what kind of people we’d hire,� Ryan said. “She knew the right people to talk to and the right message to give.� Fleet, so long the predator, became the prey. In 2004, Bank of America, swooped in and bought it. The deal vaulted Finucane onto a national stage. She defended the merger in a contentious congressional hearing, rebutting policymakers who warned that a handful of outsize institutions were coming to dominate banking. Frank initially opposed the Fleet deal. But he changed his mind after Finucane personally assured him she would oversee Bank of America’s pledge to safeguard local jobs. (The bank lived up to that pledge, but overall its mergers have cost the nation jobs — unless the acquired companies would have failed without them.) The two have remained friends, although Finucane will soon lose her ally, at least in official circles: Frank has announced that he won’t seek re-election. After the Fleet deal, Finucane shepherded Lewis around Washington. But, uncomfortable inside the Beltway, Lewis often left high-level talks to her. Among other things, she lobbied to lift federal limits on the amount of deposits any one bank could hold, a restriction that kept big banks from getting bigger. She failed, although several banks, including hers, were able to get around the restriction during the financial crisis so they could buy troubled institutions.

Seeking resolve Can anyone pull Bank of America out of this quagmire? Finucane says it is vital to resolve the foreclosure crisis, an issue that angers millions of Americans. “I can’t tell you how serious this company is about dealing with these issues head-on and doing the right thing, but also fighting where we think we should,� she said last week. Over the last year, she has been meeting with borrower advocates to help develop a plan to appease the state attorneys general. According to people briefed on the matter, the plan would reduce the principal owed on some mortgages; it has been presented to the Justice Department and attorneys general. Whether she will succeed is anyone’s guess. But Martin Eakes, founder of the Center for Responsible Lending, praises Finucane for responding to his complaints about overdraft fees. “The bank’s decision was really a watershed event on the overdraft issue,� Eakes said. He says Bank of America probably lost $600 million by dropping that fee. But Finucane says the bank would be worse off, particularly in the public’s eyes, if it hadn’t taken the step. She said, “It’s the right thing in the long term to have done.�

High-tech firms take on designs of ‘smart cities’

Tap Continued from G1 Consider this: When you order a glass of wine on a Saturday night, there’s a good chance it was poured from a bottle that was opened three days earlier. Even a newbie would notice the notes of vinegar. “It’s just not the same,” said Sabina, who pours Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot from the tap for $8 a glass. “And most customers can tell.” Because wines served from kegs are never exposed to oxygen, they remain fresh for months. Trash bins remain free of corks, glass and cardboard cases. And customers are more likely to buy wine when they can have a quick, tiny sample that is often free. Experts estimate that all of this efficiency — no frazzled bartender pulling corks and spilling wine, no busboy making recycling runs — cuts costs by up to 20 percent. It’s a savings Chris Hampton, wine director of Pleasanton’s Handles Gastropub, happily passes on to his customers. Hampton built eight wine taps on both sides of Handles’ beer system. The glistening stainless steel takes up nearly an entire wall of the gastro pub’s bar. The kegs, which each hold 5.15 gallons, or about 26 bottles of wine, are housed just behind it. “It’s a win-win-win,” Hampton said. “The wineries eliminate bottling costs, we benefit from the efficiency, and customers are guaranteed a fresh glass of wine every time.” Kegging also offered Hampton a chance to work with Vintap North America, a company that brokers and distributes stainless steel kegs, to create an exclusive Handles Gastropub wine to complement the joint’s burger fare. The result, the HOM (Handles on Main) Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, fetches

Starbucks Continued from G1 Libby Schmais, a novelist who works part time as a researcher at JPMorgan Chase, confronted the new price at the cash register of a Starbucks on Park Avenue near 48th Street. “I didn’t have the penny,” she said. The barista reached into the tip jar — into which Schmais had intended to put her change — took out a penny, and put it in the cash register. This also happened to me when I offered the barista an extra dollar in Times Square. She wouldn’t take it, and dipped into her tip jar instead — a practice that would cut the baristas’ income, if it continued.

Sensible or ridiculous? Schmais wasn’t especially irked by the price increase, which comes to 10 cents for a tall cup. But that orphaned penny had her fuming. “It’s the stupidity of it,” she said, “It’s what I’d call ‘the annoyance factor.’ It’s ridiculous. Why the extra penny? Who has pennies? Didn’t anyone think this through? Couldn’t they round down or even up? Why leave it at a penny?” When David Turnbull presented two $1 bills for coffee at the Starbucks on Astor Place, he met the same problem. He wasn’t carrying any pennies. “I can’t believe it,” he said. “Now I need to walk around with pennies? Who could possibly think a price of $2.01 makes sense?” Ari Melber, a Seattle native who writes for The Nation, was forced to fumble for change at a Starbucks on the Lower East Side — and the new price tag also struck him as puzzling. “Growing up in Seattle, I feel I know the company well,” he said. “This is a scientific company that studies everything it does very carefully. They tend to know what they’re doing. So I wonder, how could this absurd price happen? Is it an oversight, or a really smart, invasive strategy to encourage people to carry change — or maybe shift to plastic?” I tried to find out. In a cordial telephone conversation, Jim Olson, Starbucks’ vice president for global corporate communications, said the company’s prices vary from place to place, but for competitive reasons it chooses

Bar manager Nate Houston, of Residual Sugar, pours a glass of wine from a tap system at the Walnut Creek, Calif., business. Taps have been popular forever as a means of distributing beer and are become increasingly popular as a means for pouring wine, too.

Restaurateur Mike Sabina pours a glass of red wine from a tap at St. Michael’s Alley.

$8.50 a glass. “It was great fun and produced a wine that far surpassed our expectations,” Hampton said. “We’ve blown through an eight-month supply in four months.” Wine conglomerates such as Diageo and Southern Wine & Spirits have begun tapping into kegs for their brands as well. But many restaurants are giving local, artisan winemakers a shot at the spigot. Collin Cranor of Livermore’s Nottingham Cellars

started kegging last summer and loves it because he has the freedom to experiment with off-the-wall blends and tiny batches of rare wine. Recently, he worked with Victor Klee of Vino Vino in San Jose to create a blend of syrah, petit sirah and cabernet sauvignon to serve among the wine bar’s 13 wines on tap. “The wine ended up tasting awesome, “ said Cranor, who works in 120-gallon — roughly two barrels — increments.

not to list them. He assured me that Starbucks “thinks holistically about prices and about the total value it provides its customers,” and said it certainly was aware that it was raising the tall coffee price in Manhattan to $2.01. “It wasn’t an accident,” he said. While he wouldn’t provide numbers, he said that only a small proportion of customers buy just a tall coffee when they visit a Starbucks, and that an even smaller proportion pay in cash. “If you bought a coffee and, say, a bagel, you might not notice the price so much,” he said. People who pay with credit and debit cards, or with Starbucks prepaid cards or iPhone apps or reward cards are likewise insulated from the penny shock. And many popular items — including larger coffees, as well as lattes and Frappuccinos — haven’t gone up in price, he said. Moreover, prices didn’t go up nationwide, only in Starbucks stores in the Northeast and much of the Sun Belt. And as it turns out, the $2.01 price for a cup of coffee may not exist anywhere but Manhattan. Olson wouldn’t say. Perhaps by design, the company’s regional pricing resembles a patchwork quilt. Even in the New York metro area, where the price of a tall cup of coffee rose 10 cents, the actual price in stores depends on the town or borough in which you buy your coffee. With the help of family and friends, I conducted an informal survey. In Brooklyn, the home borough of Howard Schultz, the Starbucks founder, a tall cup in Park Slope cost $1.91, with tax. In Great Neck in Nassau County and in West Nyack in Rockland County, it cost $1.79, with tax. In other words, if you leave Manhattan, you don’t have to pay $2.01. Still, Manhattan is the media capital of the world, and journalists tend to drink strong coffee. Even if the $2.01 price is a tempest in a teapot, the one-cent storm was sure to be noticed. Reporters are expected to call experts for comment, so I did.

environment for commodities like coffee and milk, a modest retail increase like this would most likely keep Starbucks right on track. Each day, the company’s stock seems to flirt with a new high. “They’re doing a lot of things right,” he said. “Maybe not setting this price at $2.01, but a lot of things.” Dan Ariely, the behavioral economist at Duke University, said that “making people pay in pennies is obviously a very annoying thing,” but that people make initial purchasing decisions based on the posted price, not the price at the cash register. “If the experience at the cash register is annoying enough, it might cause people to make a change,” he said. But that may be good for Starbucks if it induces people to buy more expensive items that haven’t risen in price, or if penny shock switches people to using credit cards. “We know that people using credit find it easier to buy more,” he said. Furthermore, Ariely said, Starbucks may want to gradually move its prices even higher, “so it may have been time for Starbucks to breach the $2 price barrier for a tall coffee and get people thinking differently.” Peter Rossi, a marketing expert at the University of California, Los Angeles, said the unusual pricing touches on a national issue. It “exposes the absurdity of our current currency system, the feeling among many people that we need to get rid of the penny,” he said. There are, in fact, continuing efforts in Congress to abolish the penny. Mike White, a spokesman for the United States Mint, said a penny cost 2.41 cents to produce last year. “Basically,” he said, “it’s cost more than a penny to make the penny since 2006.” Research is under way into cheaper methods. So is penny shock more important than the pleasure of sipping a strong cup of coffee? Caffeine addiction is a powerful thing. I wrote most of this column while sipping Starbucks coffee, and I’m counting my pennies and saving extra change for the tip jar. For his part, Ariely expected to be in Manhattan this weekend. “I will be buying a tall coffee at Starbucks myself,” he said. He’ll go for the full experience and pay cash.

Penny power Andrew Barish, an equity analyst at Jefferies & Company in San Francisco, said that from the standpoint of corporate earnings, in a volatile

He fills and delivers the kegs personally. “The benefit for me is creating these blends that I wouldn’t necessarily bottle. It’s sort of like a microbrewery.” Unlike beer, however, not all wines were meant to see the inside of a keg. A small percentage of wines are age-worthy and thus benefit from the slow oxidation that occurs when they are laid down for years, explains Jim Telford, sommelier and owner of Residual Sugar in Walnut Creek, Calif. Keg wines are meant to be consumed right away. “Will we see 1855 classifications in a keg? I don’t know,” said Telford, referring to the system that classifies France’s best Bordeaux wines. “Those wines are so tight (in character) that if you never allowed them the time to mellow, it would be a big problem.” Still, kegs are the future. Telford estimates that within 10 years the majority of wines-by-the-glass will be served via keg — giving new meaning to the term keg party.

The Yomiuri Shimbun TOKYO — Hitachi Ltd., Toshiba Corp. and other major Japanese electronics makers are increasingly turning their sights toward “smart city” projects designed to create ecofriendly, energy-efficient communities. In the wake of the March earthquake in Japan, smart cities are considered to be a crucial part of the government’s energy-saving policy. Such projects are already under way overseas, particularly in urban developments in newly emerging economies. Other electronics companies, including General Electric Co., are also gearing up to enter the smart city market, intensifying competition for orders. The concept of a smart city refers to urban designs that maximize conservation of the environment by utilizing such renewable energy sources as solar and wind power, based on the introduction of a nextgeneration power supply control technology called a smart grid. Hitachi plans to take part in smart city plans in Dalian, China, as well as one in the city of Kashiwa, Japan. Urban development plans inspired by the smart city concept have been spawning a wide range of new demand for technologies such as rechargeable batteries and electric vehicles. The market for smart city projects worldwide is expected to expand to about 160 trillion yen in

2015 and 230 trillion yen in 2030, according to estimates by Nikkei BP Clean Tech Institute. To ramp up its smart city development activities, Hitachi is considering setting up an in-house group specializing in smart city planning that would be self-supporting and responsible for its sales and profits. The company has set a sales goal for its smart city department at about 350 billion yen ($4.6 billion) for fiscal 2015, up 50 percent from fiscal 2010. Toshiba plans to participate in 20 smart city projects in various parts of the world, including a demonstration model in Lyon, France. With the aim of winning a large number of smart city contracts, Toshiba established Jan. 1 a department for planning information technology services under the direct supervision of the firm’s president. The company set a sales goal for its global smart cityrelated business activities for fiscal 2015 at about 900 billion yen, more than double the projected sales for fiscal 2011. The smart city concept is also being incorporated into recovery projects for Japanese regions struck by the March’s earthquake and tsunami. Hitachi plans to help create an eco-friendly, energy-efficient city in Sendai, Japan, while Toshiba plans to realize its smart city ideas in the city of Ishinomaki, Japan.

Gibson Continued from G1 When the Red Hangar, one of the two original airport buildings, became available for lease nearly three years ago, Gibson said he jumped on the opportunity to rent it from the city with his business partner Don Peterman, co-owner of the Airport Cafe. They made it the Gibson Air Service headquarters in the fall. Around the same time, Peterman, 57, purchased the cafe, which he runs in tandem with the air service company to serve customers, even sharing its logo. Peterman said he and Gibson want to bring back the old-fashioned fun of flying, as well as the friendly atmosphere of the Bend airport, to existing pilots, traveling public and the surrounding community. “We’re trying to bring back the nostalgia with personalized service,” Peterman said. “The younger, faster, hightech world is becoming a little bit too high paced for us guys in our 50s, and we’re losing the one-on-one, ‘customer-isking’ type world.” But to appeal to those interested in more modern forms of aviation, Peterman said the company took on Scott Fordham. “We’re trying to bring back the fun of flying, but Scott is into the more technical airplanes,” Peterman said. “We hope to have the best of both worlds.” Fordham, 42, owns Northwest Professional Aviation Services. He said he flies high-performance carbon-fi-

ber aircraft, such as the Lancair Evolution and the Cessna Corvalis. When he started his company in 2007, Fordham said there was a shortage of qualified instructors to teach owners how to fly the more advanced airplanes. “There’s a future vision with new pilots,” Fordham said. “There wasn’t a lot of people out there who did what I did, so I started my own company and was holding myself out to provide flight instruction for the owners of (new) airplanes … .” In October he moved his business into the Red Hangar and quickly became part of the Gibson Air Service team, offering flight instruction, pre- and post-maintenance flights and pilot services for the company. Gibson Air Service offers aircraft maintenance for $75 an hour as well as flight instruction through Fordham ranging from $45-$75 an hour, with additional cost for the aircraft rental. In addition to those services, Fordham said the company is also a certified Hertz car rental center. This month, Gibson Air Service plans to launch a complete pilot supply store with items including charts and flight instruction materials, Fordham said. The company is also in the process of establishing a pilot club membership that will offer a concierge level of service to aircraft owners and operators providing coordination of fueling services, aircraft detailing and aircraft staging. — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

Facebook makes listening to music social

By Alex Pham Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Everywhere you look, people are going about their lives to the tunes of their own personal soundtrack. They sweat through “YMCA” at the gym, pound out programming code to Rammstein’s brutal beats and nurse broken hearts with a mournful Bach cello concerto. In the last few decades, technology has transformed music from a social gathering experience to an intensely solitary one in which donning a pair of headphones in public is equivalent to shouting, “Leave me alone!” But in a move that shows the pendulum is swinging back toward a more social listening experience, Facebook just rolled out a feature that allows users to listen to music online with their friends — and host virtual DJ parties. “You can listen to the same song, at the exact same time,” Alexandre Roche, a product designer at Facebook, wrote in a blog post last week announcing the new feature, “so when your favorite vocal part comes in you can experience it together, just like when you’re jamming out at a performance or dance club.” The concept of “social listening” is a modern day twist on the days when friends got together to take turns playing music for each other. A Saturday night’s entertainment meant bringing a stack of albums and a six-pack to some-

“There’s a powerful experience you get when you hear music with someone else. You have these shared, connected moments with your friends.” — Alexandre Roche, Facebook product designer

one’s house. On Facebook, listeners can be miles away, engaged in different activities but still be sharing a narrow slice of life. “Someone else can be going about whatever they are doing, and through music, you can just jump into that reality and experience what they’re experiencing,” Roche said in an interview. “If they’re having a bad day, you can experience that with them. If they see that a friend is listening with them, it might even brighten their day.” The key is in simultaneous listening. It’s a concept that until recently has run counter to the nature of the Internet and other modern conveniences that have allowed people to time-shift their lives as easily as pressing the pause button on TiVo. Birthday messages can be written months in advance and scheduled for delivery on the appointed date. An entire year’s worth of “Entourage” can be vacuumed in one sitting. But that “asynchronous” lifestyle has loosened some of the social mortar that binds people. “There’s a powerful experience you get when you hear music with someone else,” Roche said. “You have these shared, connected moments

with your friends.” If Facebook’s new feature sounds like deja vu, it may be because there’s a similar service called that allows users to take turns playing DJ in virtual rooms. The service took music geeks by storm last year and is being used by some artists such as the rapper Wale and dance music group VHS or Beta to introduce new albums. There are notable differences between the two. rooms are generally open to all other users whereas Facebook’s listening sessions are private, limited to friends of the host. Facebook users are able to further fine-tune which of their friends are able to listen in, preventing, say, bosses from eavesdropping. But there are similarities as

well. As with, Facebook listeners can chat together via an instant message feature within the site. The Facebook feature works with two streaming music services presently on Facebook — Spotify and Rdio. But the company said it expects other services will follow suit in the coming weeks. For Facebook, the feature hints at the company’s ambition to be the online entertainment hub of the future. Though the feature currently works only with streaming music, one can easily entertain the possibility that the platform can extend to videos as well, said David Pakman, a New York venture capitalist who invests in media and technology startups. The idea, Pakman said, is to establish the social network as an indispensable conduit for its 750 million users and their far-flung friends, re-creating “real-life” social interactions within Facebook. If that’s the case, feel free to bring your favorite brew and pass the virtual popcorn.

S D  False alarms point to fault in vehicle’s anti-theft system By Brad Bergholdt McClatchy-Tribune News Service

I am having a problem with my 2002 Q : Ford Explorer anti-theft

McClatchy-Tribune News Service


The 2012 Kia Rio is one of the growing number of much-improved subcompact cars that are winning over former SUV drivers.

Kia Rio makes downsizing for economy nearly painless By Terry Box The Dallas Morning News

Downsizing can be about as much fun as leaving your shoes on the side of the road to lighten your load. It sure makes life’s jagged little rocks a lot sharper, Hopalong. Besides, we’re a nation of extravagants who used to love 10,000-square-foot homes, 2foot-high hair and dual fourbarrel carburetors. No more, I guess. The graybloods in Washington say we need to conREVIEW sume less energy, eat fewer calories, live in smaller houses and drive cars that get 50 miles per gallon — and they have fostered a wheezing, uneven economy to ensure that we walk those hard new lines. Whoopee. Pass me that tin plate of cold beans, please. But, hey, here’s the good news: Your palm-size birthday present just might contain keys to one of the growing number of much-improved subcompact cars, like the 2012 Kia Rio. And that really is significant. Not long ago, most subcompacts seemed to be stamped from old soup cans and powered by Third World tractor motors. (Remember the Chevrolet Aveo and the Toyota Echo?) Now, though, dramatically higher federal fuel-economy requirements are scrambling the old automotive order. Some of the development dollars previously spent on full- and midsize sedans are trickling down to compacts and subcompacts — quite possibly the mainstream cars of the near future. I’m pretty sure you’re modern enough to get used to small nights out and little surprises. I’m not so certain about me. It’s not beautiful, but at least the Rio no longer looks

system going off by itself all the time. Do you have any recommendations on how to fix this? —Jeff Sanchez Let’s see if we can get you out of the doghouse with your neighbors. Your Explorer has two antitheft systems. The passive anti-theft system, or PATS, uses a transponder ignition key to deny engine function if the appropriate key isn’t used, and there’s also a perimeter anti-theft system which monitors door, hood and back hatch position while parked. Your symptom indicates a fault in the perimeter system. In a follow-up message, you indicated the anti-theft system arms and disarms properly. This can be done by pressing a door-lock button upon departure and using the key to open the door from the outside. The remote key fob and door keypad, if you have one, can also arm and disarm the system. The reason I mentioned these is it’s always a good idea to begin diagnosis by knowing what does work properly, and successful arming indicates there isn’t a continuously occurring fault. The recommended diagnostic approach for an anti-theft system fault is to connect a manufacturer specified or competent aftermarket scan tool to the vehicle and check for successful module to module communication and body system diagnostic trouble codes. The Explorer’s on-board diagnostics are really smart, with monitoring of all the perimeter system inputs and some outputs for rationality. My concern is that you have an intermittent problem while parked and the diag-

2012 Kia Rio EX Base price: $13,400 As tested: $18,345 Type: Front-wheel-drive, five-passenger, four-door subcompact (four doors and a hatchback) Engine: 1.6-liter fourcylinder with 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque Mileage: 30 mpg city, 40 mpg highway

like an industrial device designed in Yugoslavia for ice rinks. I would describe it as appealing. Big, swept-back headlamps complemented a short, sloping hood on my red Rio EX. As with all Kias now, the Rio grins kind of crookedly through its so-called tigernose grille. Although small, the car rides on a relatively long wheelbase with short overhangs front and rear, providing room for big doors and good interior space. Its slab sides are relieved some by an interesting character line that curves beneath the door handles before nosediving rakishly for the rocker panel behind the front wheel. Unfortunately, the fourdoor hatchback I had was a midlevel Rio with 18 5/65 tires on small 15-inch alloy wheels. If you opt for the 17-inch wheel package, the car looks vastly better — though no matter which options you select, you still get the pleasure of driving a hatch whose name sounds like a Brazilian dancer. Can Honda or Toyota claim that? My Rio had a tan cloth interior that felt nicely finished. With its large, sloping windshield, the Rio is saddled

with a big, flat dashboard that thankfully is saved by decent plastic. Moreover, as the dash wraps down into the instrument-panel area, it becomes tan plastic that matches the pleated seats, stitched in white. As you would expect in a car with a window sticker of $18,345, the Rio offers plenty of hard black-plastic surfaces inside — such as the center stack and console. But the black plastic door panels, for example, feature tan plastic inserts, and the back seat provides enough space for two real adults. The point is the Rio feels like good value, and Kia backs that with a 10-year, 100,000mile warranty. Even better, it’s a pretty nice scooter. Like its cousin, the Hyundai Accent, the Rio gets a directinjected 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 138 horsepower. It spins the front wheels through a slick six-speed automatic. At about 2,400 pounds, the Rio is light enough to feel lively with this powertrain stuffed under its truncated hood. Though a little soft down low, the Rio acquits itself nicely above 2,500 rpm, pulling happily to its 6,500 red line. It’s still kind of slow, running to 60 in a very average 8.9 seconds, according to Motor Trend. But the motor is smooth and fairly refined, and the six-speed automatic clicks off tight shifts that give the Rio the feel of a bigger, quicker, more expensive vehicle. If you trust Big Oil as much as I do — and what’s not to like about profiteering multinational corporations? — you have to figure that the low gas

prices today are just a respite. With the Rio’s rating of 30 miles per gallon city and 40 on the highway, you can spend less time worrying about volatile gas prices and more on saving polar bears or something. Toss the Rio into corners, and its runt Kumho tires will squeal like kids at recess. But it turns in pretty crisply, and its body motions are wellcontrolled for an econobox — thanks partly to standard stability control. The ride, while firm and a bit springy over bumps, is smoother than my Mustang. You won’t find much to like about the Rio’s steering, however — an irritation I’ve found in other Kias as well. Light and overly boosted at low speeds, the steering gets weirdly thicker at speed, losing a lot of its road feel. While quick, it rarely seems natural. Perhaps now that Kia has largely conquered styling, it can attack the mysteries of variable-ratio steering boxes. Still, the Kia Rio joins other highly credible subcompacts such as the Chevy Cruze, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit and Hyundai Accent. But you really have to wonder: How high must gas prices go before our nation of pickup drivers and SUVers agrees to slide down this far — no matter how soft the landing?

nostics are oriented towards continual irrational inputs with key-on, so this check may prove unfruitful. The most likely cause of a false alarm condition is a flaky door, hood, hatch or hatch glass ajar switch. These are normally closed grounding switches, which open a circuit when a particular door, or the hood or hatch is ajar. I believe it’s designed this way to detect tampering, but the downside is a connection fault — the most common of all electrical problems — in any of the switch circuits or a dirty switch that results in an ajar message being delivered to the control unit. Let’s try to tease the system into a false alarm. While armed, try applying various applications of force — pushing and pulling continuously, then wiggling — to each door, the hood, hatch and hatch glass. With luck, you may trigger the alarm, indicating which of the switches is the culprit. If this doesn’t work, try doing this again under similar conditions to other false alarms, in terms of ambient temperature, humidity, etc. As a last resort, I looked for a way to disable the perimeter anti-theft system, but it’s firmly integrated with other desired body functions you won’t want to do without. Another desperation ploy is to access and ground each ajar switch connection, one by one, checking to see when the fault no longer occurs. Rather than simple pin switches, the Explorer’s ajar switches are piggybacked atop each latch, making them tougher to get to. Begin with the hatch and glass switches. — Bergholdt teaches automotive technology. Email questions to

Q: Shorty Rossi from Animal Planet’s Pit Boss spent some time in prison. How did he survive such a tough environment as a little person? —A. N., West Hollywood, Calif.

A: “It was like a neigh-

borhood reunion,” says Rossi, 42, who opens up about his rough childhood and days as a gang member (he served more than 10 years for attempted murder) in his memoir, Four Feet Tall & Rising, out now. “If I was a kid from Beverly Hills, I would have had issues, but I grew up with half the people in there.” Read more from him (including what he thinks of Michael Vick!) at

Where did the idea for the Honest Company come from?

I did research when I was pregnant with my first daughter and was horrified by the chemicals in products, even those meant for babies. I would have to go to 50 different places just to get my house and my kid clean. I thought moms needed one place that curated safe items that are affordable and stylish.

Are you still feeling pressure to be a sex symbol?

That’s how I was marketed; I never put much effort into it. I don’t really care. I never did. Does being 30 feel different? Oh yeah, I am way more secure than I was in my 20s.

Is Donald Trump’s hair real? —Linda Simon, Las Vegas

Yes, according to the tycoon himself. “It may not be pretty, but it is mine,” Trump, 65, has said. In a recent attempt to prove naysayers wrong, he let Barbara Walters tug his coif on TV. And how does he maintain his awesome mane? He told Rolling Stone that he washes with Head & Shoulders, air-drys, then combs.

You answered a different question: “If an individual has not been selected over the first three quarters, what are the chances that he or she will be chosen in the fourth quarter?” The answer to the latter question is indeed 25 percent, as you wrote, but the answer to the former is about 68 percent. —George Land, Tyler, Tex.

You’re right, and I apologize for the mistake. My neurons must have been napping. The reasoning works this way: Of the 400 names, 25 percent (100) are selected in the first quarter. Assume “perfect” randomization for the purpose of calculation: Of the 300 that weren’t chosen, 25 percent (75) would be selected in the second quarter. Of the 225 still-unchosen names, 25 percent (about 56) would be selected in the third. And of the 169 remaining unchosen names, 25 percent (about 42) would be selected in the fourth. So a total of 273 different people (100 + 75 + 56 + 42 = 273) will have been selected— about 68 percent of all the employees. (Many names will have been chosen more than once, so 400 tests are still administered.) Yet the chance of any individual’s name being chosen in the next random selection (or in any future selection) never rises above 25 percent.

s a father of four, a surgeon, and a talk show host, I know all about sleepless nights. More than 25 years ago, when I was a surgical resident, I conditioned myself to get by on just two or three hours of sleep a night. I can recall walking down an empty hospital

corridor after a long shift and seeing the sun rising silently over the city. I often had trouble drifting off when I got home—and continued to have insomnia even after my residency ended. I wasn’t alone. Nearly half of all Americans have occasional insomnia, whether because of stress, hormonal changes, or poor bedtime habits; about 15 percent are plagued by chronic sleeplessness.

And that’s a problem. Waking up exhausted doesn’t just take a toll on your mood and your performance at work; inadequate sleep can lead to serious health problems—including obesity, cancer, and heart disease— and shortened life expectancy. While you’re sleeping, your body rejuvenates the connections between brain cells, renews its immune function, improves the response to insulin, and secretes growth hormone, which is essential for healthy skin and muscles. People who sleep fewer than six hours a night have a 50 percent higher risk of viral infections and an elevated risk of heart disease and stroke. A new study even suggests that a lack of sleep heightens your risk of Alzheimer’s. That said, insomnia isn’t something to lose sleep over; plenty of simple strategies can help you get the rest you need. I’ve put together this four-week plan to ensure you sleep better and longer, starting tonight.




Dim the lights. Insomnia feeds off the

minor details of modern life, like the soft blue glow from a TV, a computer, a cell phone, a PDA, or even the digital clock on your nightstand. That blue light suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a sleep-promoting hormone. Crack open a book rather than watching reruns just before bed, and cover up blue displays you can’t shut off. Place an orange lightbulb (available at Home Depot or other home improvement stores) in your bedside lamp; its glow lets you read or relax without actively inhibiting melatonin. Go mattress shopping. As anyone who’s ever been up coughing, wheezing, or blowing his nose can attest, asthma and allergies can significantly affect the quality of your sleep. And one very common cause of both conditions could be living in your mattress. Dust mites are microscopic arachnids that feed on human skin and are a major trigger for asthma and allergies. These bugs like to make their home in beds because of the steady



THIS IS YOUR BODY ON INSOMNIA Sleeplessness can have wide-reaching effects on the body. Here’s what happens to … YOUR BRAIN A new study shows that sleep is necessary to rejuvenate the connections between brain cells; these connections become increasingly erratic the longer you’re awake. According to researchers, the most easily disrupted connections were those essential for memory, executive functioning, and attention. YOUR MUSCLES The body produces growth hormone during sleep, a function necessary for building and maintaining healthy muscle tissue. So over time, insomnia can zap strength. YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM Sleep deprivation

lessens white blood cell activity, which ups the risk of getting sick. In turn, a healthy immune system promotes deep sleep, so long bouts of insomnia can create a vicious cycle. YOUR BLOOD SUGAR

Insomnia interferes with the body’s ability to metabolize glucose, leading to early signs of diabetes. One study showed that regularly snoozing less than six hours a night makes you 4.5 times more likely to develop prediabetes. YOUR MOOD Sleepless nights don’t just make you irritable; new research shows that people who suffer from chronic insomnia are five times more likely to become depressed and 20 times more likely to develop panic disorder.



supply of food; the older the mattress, the more likely that mites have taken up residence. If yours is more than five to seven years old, it may be time for an upgrade. (If your mattress is newer than that, consider buying a mite-resistant casing instead.) Chill out. Keeping your body cool slows down all of the metabolic processes, including the mental whirring that prevents you from drifting off. The worse your insomnia, the colder your bedroom should be. Start at 68 degrees Fahrenheit and crank it down to 65 degrees (or even as low as 60 degrees) if you still can’t get any rest.

CREATE A BETTER BEDTIME ROUTINE Don’t go to bed hungry. You may think you’re doing your waistline a favor by skipping dinner or not eating after 6 p.m. when your bedtime is midnight, but a growling, empty stomach makes it harder to fall asleep, and that can derail your diet. Researchers at the University of Chicago withheld sleep from study participants and found the lack of shuteye altered appetite-regulating hormones. The subjects reported feeling hungrier, with strong cravings for calorie-dense, carb-rich foods, such as sweets, salty snacks like potato chips, and starchy foods like pasta. Put a cap on your nightcap. Surveys show that up to 19 percent of people use alcohol to help nod off at night. But after the initial tranquilizing buzz wears off, alcohol often results in more fitful sleep. As your body withdraws from the drug, you may experience symptoms such as waking up in the middle of the night or the inability to reach a deep sleep. A better pre-bed beverage: chamomile tea, which research shows may have a calming effect. Slip on some socks. Feet often feel colder than the rest of the body because they have the poorest circulation. A study published in the American Journal of Physiology in 2000 suggests that wearing socks to bed keeps the blood vessels in your feet dilated, drawing blood away from your core and cooling you off, which initiates sleep.

Don’t just lie there. If you suffer through hours

counting sheep, you may soon come to associate your bed with the stress of insomnia. In fact, studies show that spending less time between the sheets—a technique known as sleep restriction—may promote more restful snoozing and, with time, help make your bed a welcome sight at the end of a long day. Calculate the number of hours you actually spend asleep, and then limit your time in bed to no more than that amount. Start with a routine that gets you up at the same time every morning—even if it’s quite early, and even on the weekends. Once you’re falling asleep more easily at night, you can slowly push your wake-up time forward. Time your workouts right. Combined with a regular bedtime routine, exercising four times a week may increase your overall sleep time by 1.25 hours each night, according to a recent study published in the journal Sleep Medicine. Why is working out so effective? Exercising significantly increases your core temperature; as your body returns to its baseline a few

90 SECOND EYE LIFT Instantly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It lifts the brow and reduces the appearance of under eye circles and puffiness for smoother, younger looking eyes.





FLAWLESS hours later, your temperature measurably drops, making it easier to drift off. The best time to work out: late afternoon or early evening (at least two hours before bedtime), so your body temperature begins falling just as you’re getting ready for bed. Break your smartphone addiction. Constantly checking email or scanning your favorite websites stimulates the brain, preventing you from winding down at night. Some research suggests that simply exposing yourself to wireless signals may interfere with sleep. In a major joint study, researchers in Sweden and at Wayne State University in Michigan found that people subjected to a substantial amount of these signals right before bed reported headaches, more difficulty falling asleep, and less restful slumber. The solution: Keep your cell phone out of reach at night, and try to spend less time on it during the day.

TAKE CONTROL OF SLEEPROBBING HEALTH CONDITIONS Put your shower massager to good use. A warm bath and a massage can help anyone nod off more easily, but they can be particularly helpful if leg cramps keep you awake. Evidence shows that heat and leg massage can improve the symptoms of restless legs syndrome, a disorder that affects up to 10 percent of the population and is characterized by cramping and an unpleasant urge to move your legs, especially WEEK

Melatonin is a sleep-promoting hormone that’s naturally produced by the body at night. Available as a supplement, it can help you fall asleep if taken two to three hours before bedtime. Keep in mind that the commonly listed dosage (five milligrams) is more than what most people require; instead, start with one milligram and work up to 2.5 milligrams if necessary. Research suggests that valerian root may have a sedative-like effect, helping you drift off more quickly and prolonging total sleep time. Try preparing it in a tea and drinking a cup before bed.


I’ve been living on my own for about a year, and I’m not the most talented chef—I can make a great sandwich, but it’s my brother Joe who’s amazing in the kitchen. So my mom, Denise, makes me this casserole, my favorite meal growing up, whenever she feels I need some home cooking. I first watched her make this when I was 5, and was apprehensive since I’d never liked cottage cheese—I think it was the texture thing. But as soon as I tried it, the love affair started, and it quickly became breakfast, lunch, and dinner for me. The eggs and cheese are perfectly matched; it’s like an omelette, only thicker. I have type 1 diabetes, which is managed by insulin delivery, but I still try to go with low-carb options like this. I get really excited when my mom brings it over.

the back of the throat collapses, causing your airway to become blocked during sleep. OSA increases the risk of heart disease and stroke; the hallmark symptom is loud snoring with intermittent pauses in breathing, as air tries to squeeze through the narrowed passageway. Research shows that losing just 10 percent of your body weight significantly improves symptoms of OSAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including snoring. See your dentist. Snorers may also benefit from a mouth guardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a small plastic device worn during sleep to help prevent the soft palate from collapsing. Even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have OSA, controlling snoring is important; a recent study showed that snoring more than doubles your risk of developing metabolic syndrome, one of the major predictors of future cardiovascular disease. Interrupted sleep, often a result of loud snoring, increases this risk even further.
