WASHINGTON — Western ecosystems capture and store 100 million tons of carbon each year, the equivalent of the emissions from 83 million cars, according to a new report from the U.S. Geological Survey. Altogether, forests, grasslands and shrublands in the West — all of Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah and Arizona and parts of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas — sequesterabout 5 percent of the country'sgreenhouse gas emissions, according to the report. That may not sound like much, but as scientists look ahead at potential factors to global warming, it will be important to know how much carbon the country's natural resources can accommodate, said Bradley Reed, a biogeographer with the U.S. Geological Survey and a co-editor of the study. "Documenting that is important to building up our knowledge base as to what we need to do to mitigate global warming," said Reed. "In order to make effective decisions, we need to understand what our resources currently are." SeeCarbon/A4

Geological Survey aims to catalog the carbon storage capacity of the nation's terrestrial ecosystems. Although forests occupy only 20 percent of western land, they store roughly 70 percent of the region's carbon. By contrast, grassland and shrublands cover 60 percent of the west and store 23 percent of the region's carbon.

Campaigns vs. polio are turning hazardous By Donald G. McNeil Jr. New York Times News Service

How in the world did something as innocuous as the sugary pink polio vaccine turn into a flashpoint between NAL$5I5 Islamic militants and Western "crusaders," flaring into a confrontation so ugly that teenage girls — whose only "offense" is that they are protecting children — are gunned down in the streets? Nine vaccine workers were killed in Pakistan last week in a terrorist campaign that brought the work of 225,000 vaccinators to a standstilL Suspicion fell immediately on factions of the Pakistani Taliban that have threatened vaccinators in the past, accusing them of be-

ing U.S. spies.

Polio eradication officials have promised to regroup and try again. But first they must persuade the killers to stop shooting workers and even guaran-

tee safe passage. That has been done before, notably in Afghanistan in 2007, when Mullah Muhammad Omar, spiritual head of the Afghan Taliban, signed a letter of protection for vaccination teams. But in Pakistan, the killers may be breakaway groups following no one's rules. SeeVaccination /A5

t wasn't long after Paul Rheault started working for the city of Bend in 2004 that he began to notice the problems that had quietly developed underground, where the city for years put off investments in its sewer system. The bill to fix those problems could now run as high as $174 million. Rheault, who was hired as the city wastewater reclamation manager, said recently that public works departments typically clean 20 percent of their municipalities' sewer systems each year, in order to completely clean the entire system every five years. But workers in Bend struggled to do this because they lacked the proper equipment. At Rheault's urging, the city purchased more equipment to clean and maintain the sewers, including small

Democratspush fortax cutsthey once opposed By Zachary A. Goldfarb The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Democrats seeking a deal to avert the year-end "fiscal cliff" are trying to etch into stone the signatureeconomic achievement of Republican President George W. Bush by permanently extending tax cuts en-

pushing to maintain lower rates on household incomes below $250,000. Those lower rates significantly reduce the taxes of nearly all American households that earn less than $250,000 — and many who earn more, even if tax rates are allowed to increase on incomes above that figure.

While it is increasingly unlikely that the two parties will reach agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff before Jan. I, it is all but certain that their ultimate deal, whenever it comes, will make permanent the lower rates for most Americans. SeeTax cuts/A4

Law enforcement officials say that, in theory, the ATF could take a lead role in setting a national agenda for reducing gun crime, a goal that has gained renewed urgency with the school massacre in Newtovm, Conn. But it is hampered, they say, by politically driven laws that make its job harder and by the ferocity of the debate over gun regulation. "I think that they've really been muzzled over the last several years, at least, from doing their job e ffectively," said Frederick Bealefeld, a former police commissioner in Baltimore. "They've really kind of been the whipping agency, caught in the political turmoil of Washington on the gun issue." The bureau's struggles are epitomized by its lack of a fulltime director since Congress, prodded by the NRA, decided that the position should require Senate confirmation.

An unlikely, decadelong journey that began with the discovery of a rapidly aging mouse has led scientists to a protein that seems to protect animals from cancer and other scourges of old age — with no apparent downsides. There are still lots of mysteries about the protein, called BubR1, but the work offers clues about how protecting chromosomes can enhance health. C ancer b i ologist J a n van Deursen at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and his colleagues were initially interested in studying a common feature of cancers, called aneuploidy. Aneuploid cells have too few or too many chromosomes. Nearly allcancer cells fall into this category, but it's not clear whether aneuploidy actually causes cancer. van Deursen, along with a then-graduate student, Darren Baker, engineered mice toproduce less BubR1, a protein that helps cells segregate their chromosomes when they divide. When BubRI is reduced, chromosomes can't properly separate into identical daughter cells, leaving some cells with the wrong number of chromosomes. Van Deursen, Baker, and their c olleagues wanted to see whether these mice would develop cancer. To their surprise, instead of tumor-filled mice, they wound up w i t h a n i mals that aged v er y q u i ckly. "These mice were clearly very, very different than a normal mouse," says Baker, who now studies the biology of aging at the Mayo Clinic. Last year, they reported that removing old cells — that is, cells with a genetic marker indicating senescence — from these mice could help them stay healthier longer. Adding intrigue is an extremely rare human condition caused by mutations in the BubRI gene. Patients with the disease, mosaic variegated

Psychological t raum a dims tens of millions of lives around the world and helps create costs of at least $42 billion a year in the United States alone. But what i s t r auma, exactly? Both culturally and medically, we have long seen it as arising from a single, identifiable disruption. You witness a shattering event, or fall victim to it — and as the poet Walter de la Mare put it, "the human brain works slowly: first the b low, hours a f terward t h e bruise." The w orld r eturns more or less to normal, but you do not. In 1980, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders defined trauma as "a recognizable stressor that would evoke significant symptoms of distress in almost everyone" — universally toxic, like a poison. But it turns out that most trauma victims — even survivors of combat, torture or concentration camps — rebound to live full, normal lives. That has given rise to a more nuanced view of trauma — less a poison than an infectious agent, a challenge that most p eople overcome bu t t h a t may defeat those weakened by past traumas, genetics or otherfactors. Now, a significant body of work suggests that even this view is too narrow — that the e nvironment just a f ter t h e event, particularly other people'sresponses, may be just as crucial as the event itself. The idea was demonstrated vividly in tw o presentations this fall at the Interdisciplinary Conference on Culture, Mind and Brain at the University of California, Los Angeles.Each described reframing a classic model of traumatic experience — one in lab rats, the other in child soldiers. In th e f i r s t c a se, P aul Plotsky, a neurobiologist at Emory University, described w hat h appened w he n h e tweaked one of the most widely used models of how maternal separation affects young rats. The model was created in the early 1990s by Plotsky himself to bring consistency to the way maternal separation is studied. Earlier experiments kept mother and pups apart anywhere from one to 24 hours;Plotsky reset those periods to 15 m i nutes (the amount of time rat mothers in the wild routinely leave their

roadkill"). After a 15-minute separation, a mother would typically sniff and lick each pup, then gather and feed them, all the while conversing with them in gentle, ultrasonic warbles. After a 180-minute separation, however, most mothers would dash about emitting panicky squeaks, often stomping on the pups or ignoring them. The pups too would squeak loudly. And for the rest of their lives, they had outsize physiological and behavioral reactions to stress and challenge. This "15/180" model quickly became a standard, generating scoresof studies showing that long separations created anxious rodents with permanent changes in stress-hormone activity, brain structure and many other measures. These findings became foundational to our view of trauma and its effects. Then about five years ago, Plotsky was thinking about the mother's post-separation panic when, he said, "it hit

me: Maybe she views her environment as unsafe" because she and her pups are back in the same cage as the one they were taken from. So he upgraded the simple cage toa complex one:a maze devised to test rats' navigational skills. The separated rat family now reunited not in the kidnapping site but in the antechamber ofan eight-room condo. Now, even after 180-minute separations, things went fine. The mother would sniff the

calmer and more in control, and she passed that on to the pups. Trauma seemed now to rise not from the separation alone but from the flavor of the reunion. But that is rats in a l a b. Does the same hold true for humans? A study of former child soldiers in Nepal suggests that it may. Since 2006, Dr. Brandon Kohrt, a psychiatrist and medical anthropologist at George Washington University, has followed the fates of Nepalese children who returned to their v illages after serving w i t h the Maoist rebels during their country's 1996-2006 civil war. All 141 in the study, 5 to 14 years old when they joined the rebels,experienced violence and other events considered traumatic, aside from t heir separation from family. Yet their postwar mental health depended not on their exposure to war but on how their families and villages received them. This finding is echoed in studies of U.S. soldiers returning home: PTSD runs higher among veterans who cannot reconnect w it h s u p portive people and new opportunities.

pups, check out a couple of rooms, then move everybody to one of them and coddle and nurse the pups much as she would after a 15-minute absence. Even if Plotsky separated the family again the next day (or even eight days in a row), she would do the same

thing, usually choosing a new room. But maybe the pups still suffered? Actually, no. Few showed any signs of trauma, either immediate or lasting. A separation that had been consideredpermanently scarring proved routine simply because the mother, having a m o re varied,secure environment in which to receive her pups, felt

BEIRUT — President Bashar Assad of Syria sits in his mountaintop palace as the tide of war licks at the cliffs below. Explosions bloom over the Damascus suburbs. His country is p lunging deeper into chaos.

Continued from A1 R. Glenn Hubbard, dean of Columbia Business School and an architect of the Bush tax cuts, said it was "deeply ironic" for Democrats to favor extending most of them, given what he called their "visceral" opposition a d ecade ago. Keeping the lower rateseven for incomes under $250,000 "would e nshrine the vast bulk of the Bush tax cuts," he said. Democrats say they have reconsidered their opposition to the Bush tax cuts for several reasons. The cuts were written into law from 2001 to 2003 aftera decade in which most Americans had seen robust income growth. Over the past decade, by contrast, median wages have declined, after adjusting for inflation, amid a weak economy. Allowing tax cuts for the middle class to expire would further reduce take-home pay. "We've had these tax cuts in place since 2001. The world changes, and the economy is where it is," said Steven Elmendorf, who was chief of staff to former House minority leader Richard Gephardt, D-Mo., a primary opponent of the Bush tax cuts. "With people's economic status, we should not be raising taxes

that is very much desired by Democrats and progress ives who've seen an i n come distribution more and more distorted toward the wealthy," said Betsey Stevenson, former chief economist in Obama's Labor Department and a professor at the University of Michigan, who added that taxes may have to rise even more than currently contemplated to meet the country's needs.

Vaccination Continued from A1 Vaccination efforts are also under threat in other Muslim regions, although not this violently yet. In Nigeria, another polioendemic country, the new Islamic militant group Boko Haram has publicly opposed it, although the only killings that the media have linked to polio were those of two police officers escorting vaccine w orkers. Boko H aram h a s killed police officers on other missions, unrelated to polio vaccinations. In Mali, extremists took over half the country in May, declaring an Islamic state. Vaccination is not an issue yet, but Mali had poliocases as recently as mid-2011, and the virus some-

Sewers Continued from A1 "You don't want to find it with an auger going through the line because then you break that line, you get sparks, there's the potential for an explosion," Rheault said. As workers further explored the sewers, their concerns only increased. Rheault, who is now director of Public Works, said the city began to uncover the true extentof the sewer problems in 2006, when it began monitoring the amount of water flowing through the system. "We really uncovered the magnitude of the problem in 2008," said Tom Hickmann, the city engineer and assistant public works director. By that time, the city was monitoring wastewater flow at 50 of approximately 7,000 manholes in the city. In some places, wastewater "surcharged," meaning it rose above the level of the pipes and began to fill the manholes until, in some cases, they overflowed. Historically, a manhole near the Cas-

cade Village Shopping Center overflowed sometimes during storms, Hickmann said. The list of sewer problems continues. By the time Rheault was hired in 2004, the wastewater treatment plant was already 20 years old, past due for an upgrade to increase efficiency and

Pakistani health workers take part in a rally Saturday in lslamabad to condemn the killing of their colleagues. Officials say gunmen killed a woman working on U.N.-backed polio vaccination efforts and her driver. Similar attacks across the country killed several female polio workers a day earlier.

backlash threatens the effort to eradicate polio in the three countries where it remains endemic: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. In 1988, long before donors began delivering m o squito nets, measles shots, AIDS pills, condoms, deworming drugs and other Western medical goods to the world's most remote villages, Rotary International dedicated itself to wiping out polio and trained teams to deliver the vaccine. But remote villages are often ruled by chiefs or warlords who are suspicious not only of Western modernity but of their own governments. The Nigerian government is currently dominated by Christian Yorubas. More than a decade ago, when word came from the capital that all chil-

dren must swallow pink drops to protect them against paralysis, Muslim Hausas in the far-off north could be forgiven for reacting the way the fundamentalist Americans of the John Birch Society did in the 1960s when the government in far-off Washington decreed that, for the sake of children's teeth, all drinking water should havefluoride. The northerners a l ready had grievances. In 1996, the drug company Pfizer tested its new antibiotic, Trovan, during a meningitis outbreak there. Eleven children died. Although Pfizer still says it was not to blame, the trial had irregularities, and last year the company began making payments to victims. Other rumors also spring from realevents.

In Pakistan, resistance to vaccination, low overall, is concentrated in Pashtun territory along the Afghan border and in Pashtun slums in large cities. P akistan's government i s friendly with the United States, while the Pashtuns' territory in border areas has been heavily hit by U.S. Taliban-hunting drones, which sometimes kill whole families. So, when the CIA admitted sponsoring a hepatitis vaccination campaign as a ruse to get into a compound in Pakistan to confirm that Osama bin Laden was there, and the White House said it had contemplated wiping out the residence with a drone missile, it was not far-fetched for Taliban leaders to assume that other vaccinators worked for the drone pilots.

ers and the city installed pumps without designing a system for the pumps to work in tandem. In 2005, a power failure at a pump station in northwest Bend caused morethan 200 gallons of raw sewage to spill into the Deschutes River. Raw sewage also poured into the bottom floor of the Riviera Apartments and came out of manholes on Steidl and Portland Avenues, The Bulletin reported. Even when the wastewater remains in the sewer system, it can causea stink in some areas of the city. "When you've got as many pump stations as we have, including home sumps, there's a lot of potential for stirring up the water," Rheault said. Community D e v elopment Director Mel Oberst said 246 of the 336 total pump stations serve a single home. "It's nuts, because these people have pumps in their house, in their basement, in t h eir g arage," Oberst said. "The controls for the pump are in their house, and the city's going in there to maintain it. It's a very large cost and liability for the city to maintain that." H ickmann said h e wa s unaware of any other cities that do what Bend does, with pumps on p r ivately owned residential properties. "This is unheard of," Hickmann said. "The energy cost associated with running all those pumps

is really expensive."

ethnic groups, and brutal historical facts that make that fear seem justified. Unless it is countered, and quickly, the

The city a n d d e velopers building new subdivisions and commercial p r ojects a dded onto the sewer system in what several officials described as a piecemeal manner, so the city now has larger pipes that empty into smaller pipes. While the city uses gravity to bring much of the wastewater to the treatment plant, it also relies on a system of 336 sewer pumps that forcewastewater through pipes around the city.

10 years," Andrews said. That would increase the residential sewer rate from approximately $42 a month to roughly $81 by 2021. The current sewer rate will cover the expansion of the wastewater treatment plant, which the city is financing with $38.8 million in lowinterest loans from the Oregon Department of Environmental

provements necessary to serve new development will not be complete by the time the economy recovers and building takes off again in Bend. Construction on the expansion could begin as early as April 2013, but it couldtake three years to complete, Rheault said.


In many areas of the city, the sewer lines cannot handle any additional wastewater. There are acouple ofreasons forthis. "In some parts of the city, we have large lines flowing into small lines, and it should be the reverse," Rheault said. Also, some of the pipelines date to 1913, including the pipeline that collapsed at Olney Avenue in November and required emergency repairs. "At that age, they're a lot more brittle than they were when they were new," Rheault said. "At this point in time, there's more water flowing through them in some cases. All of that contributes to ... a potential for that pipe to break apart, as we saw on Olneya month ago." One of the most perplexing problems for public works officials is the system of 336 pump stations spread across the city. The pumps are more likely to fail than a gravity system, require more maintenance and create odors in some areas. To make matters worse, develop-

Work curtailed The city started work on the new system of major gravity lines to increase sewer capacity, but the City Council brought that to a halt earlier this year after deciding the cost to ratepayers would be too great. In the 1970s and 1980s, the state and federal government paid $44 million of the $53 million project that is still the backbone of existing sewer system. This included large gravity lines and the wastewater plant. That outside money is no longer available, according to city officials. The planned expansion of the water treatment plant, combined with the gravity lines and repairs to collapsed sewer lines and manholes, would cost the city $174 million, said city Finance Director Sonia Andrews. "Our analysis shows we would have to almost double rates in

The gravity l i ne s a l one would cost $106 million, and they would solve the problem of lack of capacity in the sewer system, Hickmann said in an interview earlier this year. The water treatment plant, operating at capacity, could hold up development, if it is not expanded in time to accommodate aneconomic recovery. The plant was designed to treat 6 million gallons of wastewater per day, and residents and businesses currently send 5.5 million to 6 million gallons of waste to the plant each day, according to a recent city presentation. If not for the recent slowdown in construction, the problem could be far worse. "If everything was to be built today that was approved to be built, we would be approaching 8.5 million gallons per day," Rheault said. "If that were to happen, I think we would have a real tough time." Rheault said his biggest fear is that the infrastructure im-

Aging pipes

Central Oregon geology is one reason Bend has more pump stations. The cost is high to dig through rock to install gravity sewer lines. However, Redmond has similar r o ck underneath it and only a fraction of the number of pump stations. Shannon Ostendorff, assistant public works director for Redmond, said the city has 13 pump stations. The Redmond sewer master plan calls for most of these to be eliminated in the future, in favor of a system that relies almost completely on gravity. "There'sless chance of failure," Ostendorff said. "Gravity doesn't fail, except for when sewer lines clog. Most cities are designed to be gravity flow wherever possible. ... When you have a lift station have a failure, that means a major backup will occur, either in the streetor in someone's house. That's a major danger to health and the environment." N one of t h e p u mp s i n Redmond serve i n d ividual single family homes, as most of the pumps in Bend do. "This is a nightmare. This is a disaster," said Hickmann of Bend's pump system.

The top official at a Seattle-basedenergy company says a subterranean experiment designed to create a multi-layer geothermal reservoir within Newberry Volcano this fall was a success. "It seems like we have done all we set out to do," Susan Petty, president of AltaRock Energy, said last week. In the enhanced geothermal system, or EGS, project, the company forced cold water down a 10,600-foot-deep well about five miles northeast of La Pine. The cold water caused hot rock deep in the well to fracture, making a web of cracks to serve as the reservoir. The three separate layers of the reservoir were made by adding tiny bits of biodegradable plastics into the water to clog the freshly made cracks so more fracturescould be created. The cracking set off shock waves and AltaRock used an array of ultra-sensitive seismic equipment to m easurethe growth ofthe reservoir. Information from the array is also available online at a website maintained by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The equipment detected 26 seismicevents magnitude I or greater since stimulation started in October.The largestwas a magnitude-2.39 temblor on Dec. 7, the final day of stimulation. See Newberry/B5

SALEM — Rep. Gene Whisnant, R-Sunriver, liked holding "half of the gavel." "It gives you lots of power as far as moving bills and not moving bills," Whisnant said. With the House in an even, historic divide last year of 30-30, Republicans and Democrats reached a unique power-sharing agreementon each committee. Democrats and Republicans as co-chairs each wielded gavels and with them, equal control. In the upcoming legislative session, with Democrats controlling both chambers, Whisnant will no longer hold a gavel. But House Co-Speaker designee Rep. Tina Kotek, D-Portland, said she assigned committees Friday in a continuing spirit of bipartisanship. The 2013 legislative committee assignments still include many Republicans assigned to top spots, such as chair,co-chair and vice-chair. "There are thoughtful, well-respected legislators on both sides of the aisle who have important ideas to offer," Kotek said in a statement. "Committees are designed in a way that will allow us to best tackle the challenges facing the state." She has made clear the upcoming session will focus on steeringmore moneytoward K12 schools and that education issues overall willbe a top priority. Whisnant said he's looking forward to sitting on the Higher Education and Workforce Development Committee and the House Education Committee. See Legislature/B5

Christmas greeted Bend with snowfall, presents, family and food. But the bravest Bendites spent the day in search of thrills. Thin sheets of ice blanketed Drake Park's sloping lawns as Christmas morning moved toward afternoon Tuesday. Perfect conditions for Jacob Stasny, 8, to try out the green, discshaped sled he had opened that morning. "I think I'm going to zoom down," Stasny said, before taking off down the hill to his parents' cheers. It was far from a typical day in downtown Bend. Quiet and calm replaced the usual crowds of tourists and shoppers on Wall and Bond streets. But for dozens of Bend residents, from select businesses to public safety workers and first responders, Dec. 25 was another day on the job. Christmas morning marked the halfway point of a 48-hour shift for Capt. Mike King and a four-man crew at the Bend Fire Department west station. The shift had been mostly quiet as of Tuesday afternoon, King said. SeeChristmas/B5

One of the most important moments in Lacey Wickersham's high school career had nothing to do with her own grades, praise, or awards. It had to do with watching a student with autism walk up on a stage and victoriously collect his high school diploma "Even though my part in his graduating wasn't the biggest, to be able to have some part in it was really cool," Lacey, 17, said. "It really takes a village to help these kids grow, and when you do see that growth,

it's amazing." Lacey, a Mountain View High School senior, is a 4.0 GPA student who spends her free time as a volunteer mentor in the school's Lifeskills program. She's also a My Future My Choice mentor for younger students, and a volunteer with the Red Cross Club. "I just think of all the people in my life that have influenced me in a positive way," Lacey said. "I just thought, what's stopping me from being that person for someone else?" SeeLacey/B2

By Randi Bjornstad The Register-Guard (Eugene) t,:

SPRINGFIELD — If memory serves — and it has to go back a long, long way — Dick and Velma Scharen met either the daybefore or after Valentine's Day. Ten months later, on Christmas Day, they married. The year was 1937, in the depths of the Great Depression. He was 18, she was 15. Now 93 and 90, the couple celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary Tuesday, snug in the Hayden Bridge neighborhood of north Springfield, surrounded by family members who provide round-the-clock support that allows the couple to stay where they've lived for nearly 50years since leaving the family farm near Goshen. T hey met o n t h a t f a r m . D ick's people w er e L a n e County pioneers. Coryell Pass,

Of th e 1 , 000-acre f a r m where Dick and his four brothers — Walter, Bill, Bob and Ted — grew up, Barcelona filberts took up about 70 acres and p rovided nursery stock f o r many of the area's other filbert orchards.

including sheep and pigs. "Even if they didn't have money during the Depression, I think their lives were fairly stable," says Vicki Nelson, one of Dick and Velma's three children and the younger of their two daughters. "They had the farm and could grow food. My mother's family situation was much different."

Child of the Dust Bowl Velma Scharen, born Velma R obertson, blew i nt o t o w n from the Dust Bowl with her father and seven of her nine siblings, in an old truck with a canopy over the bed to hold them all. Back in the Texas panhandle, her mother, just 35, had died recently of "dust pneumonia," an inflammation of the lungs caused by breathing in dust particles carried by the prairie wind as it blew away topsoil throughout the nation's drought-ridden midsection. Breathed in too-large quantities, the dust couldn't be ex-

pelled, damaging the lungs and often leading to death. Velma's older sister, Jewel, was grown and stayed behind when the rest of her family left. Already married, she kept Velma's baby brother, David, to raise as her own, but she died eight years later, in childbirth. The others — J.D., Carl, Lloyd, Velma, Modene, Rozell, Jess and Dortha — made the trip. The family always had been desperately poor. They lived in Oklahoma when Velma was born, later moving to Texas. "My dad was a roamer," Velma recalled. "He worked in the oil fields, but during the Depression there wasn't much work to be had." Her own working life began at age 6. Along with her older siblings, "I worked sunup to sundown in the fields, for $1 a day," she said. "We picked cotton, peanuts, maize, all by hand — there was no machinery back then. I would come in crying. I was in so much pain I could hardly stand, and my mother would say, 'It's just growing pains.' " Just 13 when her mother d ied and the oldest girl at home, Velma stopped attending school after eighth grade, becoming a substitute mother to her younger brothers and sisters. On the t ri p f r o m T exas, which took a m o n t h, "We would stop and eat pork-andbeans and sardines and sleep

Dick and Velma Scharen were married on Christmas Day in 1937, when Dick was18 and Velma had just turned15. Now 93 and 90, respectively, they celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary

in math," she said — and she took care of record-keeping. In 1955, they took a vacation, driving a two-door Plymouth to the Southwest, where the car broke down in Provo, Utah. "There was a b r and-new 1955 red-and-white Chevy Bel Air coupe sitting there, and we traded in the Plymouth and bought it," Dick recalled. "We took the license plate off and put it on the Chevy and drove home. I remember it was a V8 and had overdrive — we went 55 to 60 miles per hour all the way home." From then on, they could afford to trade for a new car every threeto four years, Velma said, "although we kept one Mercury for about 17 years." In other ways, though, the lessons of thrift stayed with them. "They always worked very hard all t h e t i me," Nelson said. "They were always very careful — I think that was the way for most people who lived through the Depression." At the same time, her parents were generous — and still are — toward family members who need help, she said. "My mother had nothing when she was young, and I think she tried to make up for that with us," Nelson said. "She makes sure everyone has plenty of gifts at Christmas, because she didn't have that as a child." Remembering that long-ago combination Christmas-andwedding day, Dick chuckled. "I didn't have any presents to give," he said. "I guess I was the present." That worked both w ays, Velma agreed. Both considertheir 75 years together a great gift. "I would do it all again," Velma said. Dick nodded.

Thief hits Portland church —Officials at a Portland church believe a burglar attended a service, hid inside the church overnight and stole food, tools and recording equipment. KATU reported the

Lincoln Street Baptist Church lost $600 worth of tools. The freezer was also cleaned out of food. Pastor Dan Paxton said he found the burglary days before Christmas and thinks the thief's desperation in

a tough economy likely led to the crime. Paxton says the thief might have beensurprised by someone returning to the church, because several items were left in piles on the floor.

— Velma Scharen alongside the road," she said.

Finding a job When they arrived in Goshen, herfather had $50 to his name. "He met a man there who said he was working for a local farmer. My dad and my brothers went out to the farm to see if they could find work." The farm belonged to Dick Scharen's father, and Dick was the first person they saw: "I was going up to milk the cows, and her dad said to me that he understood we might have work pretty soon. I said, yes, we would have work in the filbert nursery before long." Her father got a job. Dick and two of his brothers were the same ages as two of her brothers, and from that day on, "We all horsed around together," Velma said. Almost immediately, she and Dick felt the attraction that led to their

wedding. C ourtship c o n sisted o f "dates" on which the young couplewere invariably accompanied by several of Velma's younger brothers and sisters. Her family was thrilled by the match. "They all loved him," she said. "I turned 15 on D ec. 19, and we decided I was old enough toget married. So we got married on Christmas."

Without a car or money for a honeymoon, the newlyweds spent their wedding night at the home of one of Dick's married brothers,on Cloverdale Road near Creswell. "They slept in the attic, and so did we," Velma said. "They hung a blanket in the middle, and they had one side, and we had the other." Life didn't change all that much after the wedding. Dick and Velma continued to live with family an d r a ise her younger siblings until t h ey could afford to move out on their own. "My sister, who is now 81, called us M o m a n d D a d," Velma said. "She didn't even remember our mother." It was six months after the ceremony before they could afford to have a wedding portrait taken. The Scharens had no children of their own until 1946 "We already had raised a lot of kids," they both say. The Depression continued, and they worked hard on their own farm and others, picking hops, digging carrots, whatever it took to earn a bit of cash to help make ends meet.

regon's Occupational Safety 8 Health Division lost a court battle in February over holding an employer responsible for a safety violation. It should not now move to change its rules to what it could not win in the courts. This issue began when an Oregon OSHA official cited two employees of CC&L Roofing Co., Inc., for a violation. The two employees were "working more than 10 feet above the ground without using fall protection equipment," according to court documents. That's not in dispute. The inspector found that both the lead man on thejob and the other employee had trainingin safety equipment. They just weren't using it. Such a violation is classified as "serious" by Oregon OSHA, so it must establish that the company actually knew about the violation or reasonably could have known. The roofing company argued that it did not actually know about the violation. It also argued that it should not be found to have reasonably known about the violation, because the lead man on the job was violating company policy. An administrative law judge found the roofingcompany had done everything it could to train and ensure employees follow OSHA rules for fall protection. The judge said the lead man's failure to obey the rules and follow the company's policy was "willful

misconduct." Oregon OSHA challenged the administrative law judge's decision in the Oregon Court of Appeals. It argued, essentially, that because a supervisor was involved in the violation, that fact satisfies the requirement that the employer knew. In February, the court affirmed the administrative law j u dge's decision. Then Oregon OSHA set up two meetings in November to promote a new, potential "employer knowledge" rule, changing its rule to reflect what it sought in court. The division's website says if there is a formal rulemaking proposal it would begin in February of next year after more meetings with employers. Obviously, employers should make reasonable efforts to ensure their employees are safe. They should provide safety training and equipment, refresher courses and make solid efforts to ensure safety procedures are followed. Employers should also be able to prove it. But it is not fair to hold an employer responsible for the act of a rogue supervisor who ignores company training and policies.

Pension obligation bonds

a risk for publicagencies here are no easy answers to Oregon's public pension problems. With th e s tate struggling to fill a $16 billion gap between what it has for its Public Employee Retirement System and what it will owe retirees, there's more than enough pain to go around. That $16 billion, by the way, is more than $1 billion greater than the state's general fund for the current biennium. Nor is the problem just the state's. Nearly every public agency in Oregon, from school districts to counties to cities to rural fire p rotection districts, will pay a larger percentage of their budgets to PERS next year than this year. Without change, the situation is unlikely to improve soon. Not surprisingly, knowing that they'll be forced to spend a larger chunk of their budgets on the retirement program — and have less to spend on teachers, social workers and other current government employees — some school districts and others have chosen another path, issuing something called pension obligation bonds to ease their pain. The public buys the low interest


bonds, giving the selling agency an immediate cash infusion that is then used to make higher-risk investments that pay more than the cost of the bonds. If all goes well, the agency makes enough money to reduce its annual public pension obligation. Like any such system, it works well — if. If the agency sells the bonds at the right time, for one thing. Portland Public Schools did just that, according to The Oregonian, selling bonds years before the stock market took a serious dive and watching the invested proceeds grow to three times the size of its payroll by 2007. The Lane Education Service District, by contrast, sold late and has seen its side investment drop by 27 percent since. To break even, an agency's payroll must grow by 3.75 percent each year and its side investment must return at least 8 percent. In reality, issuing pension obligation bonds is risky business, and agencies can make their financial situation worse by issuing them. They'd be far better off to work with lawmakers and their unions to reform PERS than to hope a bond gamble will pay off.

longer a model for the world. Don't blame our leaders, however. Blame us. We elected them. How then is it that we the people have chosen leaders whose stewardship has so badly compromised our future? A (square) root answer is in our educational system. We do not teach our children how to be objective. Our students' world ranking is 25th in math and 17th in science. We teach less of the quantitative subjects of mathematics, science, technology and engineering than almost all other socioeconomically advantaged countries. A s a result, we vote from t h e ground up with our feet, heart and limbic system instead of with our minds' higher centers of reason, judgment andknowledge. We vote with emotion instead of objectivity. We have difficulty sepa-

rating fact from fiction, truth from untruth, essence from hyperbole, core from exaggeration, reality from disinformation, and substance from (as the vice president would put it) baloney. We should not be surprised that from local precincts to higher offices we elect buffoons and our voting prowess attracts them. As the joke goes, the problem with political jokes is that they get elected ... by us. We the people have created political dysfunction and paresis. How else do we explain that half the country thought the vice president's debate performance was laudable? How else do we explain the anti-science that has emerged in our country'? That we let absurd political ads affect choice? The solution to this problem is long term: revamping our educational system to require proficiency in math,

science and other quantitative subjects for all of our students and from the earli estgrades onwards. Our children will need to learn quantitative skills so that they can teach them to t heir children and reverse the vicious cycle that has been turning for a generation in our country. Until we learn how to attract and select our best candidates for office, o ur sociopolitical system wil l b e mired in mediocrity and hypocrisy, our political campaigns will continue to be negative and prey on feelings, and we will fail to elect leaders we need to turn us, the U.S., around. But if we don't start now, it will take just that much longer. And we are running out of time. Until then, maybe we should follow the adage of P.J. O'Rourke: "Don't vote. It just encourages (them)." — Archie Bleyer livesin Bend.

T ULE R I VE R I N D I A N R ESERVATION — T his i s a sovereign land of otherworldly beauty. Mist spills down a v alley that w i nds from the giant sequoias to the elderberry and oak of the Sierra foothills. Stars in a black nightsky seem as close as the candles that have been lighted in vigil during this tribe's darkest moment. For nearly t w o w e e ks, Yokut tribal members have been coming to the Church on the Hill, lighting candles.

The gatherings began spontaneously Dec. 8, the night Hector Celaya, 31, killed his mother and two uncles, critically wounded Andrew, his 6-year-old son, and sped off in a Jeep with his two daughters, Alyssa, 8, and Linea, 5. "We held hands tight and Chris Pizzello /The Associated Press file photo

He was struck m u ltiple times, but the coroner concluded that the gunshot to his head was self-inflicted. Linea s urvived a gunshot to t h e head. She is in fair condition at a local hospital. Alyssa's autopsy showed that her father shot her at the reservation and she bled to death as he drove.

"Her grandson killed her children and shot his own c hildren. The grief i n h e r eyes as she took it in was unbelievable. But her manner of standing. She held herself. She would not crumble." In front of the candles, two teens beat out a rhythm with clap sticks. An older woman, with a voice that seemed to travel to the farthest hill, sang an ancient song of grief in the Yokut language. R oxanne C a r r illo, t h e minister and M i ke's cousin, opened the doors to the church, where services freely mix elements of Catholicism, evangelical Christianity and native traditions. The lights blazed, there was hot coffee and country songs spilled out the doors. As they entered, people swayed to "That's What ILove about Sunday."

mined yet. Snowfall this month has stopped work at the site, Petty said. Come spring, AltaRock plans to drill a well into the reservoir to test whether it could serveas a geothermal source. There are no immediate plans to build a geothermal power plant on the Newberry Volcano, but she has said the lessons learned in the experimentcould be us ed to create new power sources elsewhere. There is interest around the country and worldwide in e x panding g eothermal power production as nations try to expand their renewable energy portfolio, Hickman said. Wind and solar power are other options, he said, but don't provide a steady supply of power like geothermal. "You don't need the sun to be shining or the wind to blowing for geothermal to work," Hickman said.

She said seismic activity c ontinued a s e x pected a fter stimulation ended. At public meetings before and during the stimulation, critics of the project expressed concerns that the experiment could

Along with A l taRock, a team ofresearchers also kept watch on the experiment and saw nothing alarming, said Stephen Hickman, a research geophysicist with th e U .S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif. He said the small earthquakes showed where the reservoir grew. "That's all part of the plan," he said. Critics also aired fears that plastics and tracer chemicals used in the experiment could spread into groundwater. The well is lined with steel and concrete and the new reservoir is thousands of feet below the aquifer, Petty has said.

West Coast girds for more tsunami debris By Alicia Chang The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Volunteers who patrol California beaches for plastic, cigarette butts and other litter will be on the lookout this winter for flotsam from last year's monstrous tsunami of f J a pan's coast. Armed w i t h ind e x-size cards,beachcombers will log water bottles, buoys, fishing gear and other possessions that might have sailed across the Pacific to the 1,100-mile shoreline. The March 2011 disaster washed about 5 million tons of debris into the sea. Most of that sank, leaving an estimated 1.5 million tons afloat. No one knows how much debris — strewn across an area three times the size of the United States — is still adrift. T sunami flotsam has a l ready touched th e P a cific N orthwest and Hawaii t h i s year.The West Coast isbracing for more sightings in the coming months as seasonal winds and coastal currents tend to drive marine wreckage ashore. Like the past winter, scientists expect the bulk of the debris to end Up in Alaska, Washington state, Oregon and British Columbia. Last week, the Coast Guard spotted a massive dock that p ossibly came from Japan on a w i lderness beach in Washington state. Given recent storm activity, Northern California could see "scattered and intermittent" episodes, said Peter Murphy, a marine debris expert at the N ational Oceanic an d A t mospheric A d m i n istration, which recently received a $5 million donation from Japan to track and remove tsunami debris. To prepare, state coastal regulators have launched a cleanup project to document possible tsunami items that churn ashore. Working with enVirOnmental grOuPS, Volttnteers will scour beaches with a checklist. It's like a typical beach cleanup, but the focus

will be to locate articles from Japan. Until now, efforts in California have been haphazard. The goal is to organize tsunami debris cleanups at least once every season stretching from the Oregon state line to the Mexican border and then posting the findings online. Debris from Asia routinely floats to the U.S. It's extremely difficult t o l i n k s o mething back to the Japanese tsunami without a serial number, phone number or other marker. Of the more than 1,400 tsunami debris sightings reported to NOAA, the agency only traced 17 pieces back to the event, including small fishing boats, soccer balls, a dock and a shipping container housing a Harley-Davidson motorcycle with Japanese license plates. No confirmed tsunami debris so farhas reached California. Even in the absence of a direct connection, California coastal managers said it helps to know if a beach is being covered with more marine debris than usual. «We Want to get an idea Of where to focus our efforts. We have limited resources," said Eben Schwartz, marine debris program manager at the California Coastal Comm ission, which h e ads t h e $50,000 NOAA-fttnded Project. "If we see the problem is hitting the north coast and not getting as far south as San Francisco, that tells us where to focus." L ast su m m er , NOA A awarded $250,000tofive West Coast states to help with tsunami debris removal. Alaska spent its share to clean up a 25-mile stretch of beach before the weather turned too bitter. Hawaii and Washington state have yet to dip into their funds.

Oregon racked up $240,000 to remove debris on beaches including a 66-foot dock that broke loose from the port of Misawa during the tsunami and splashed ashore over the summer. Part of the tab — $50,000 — was covered by NOAA.

Mike Riley usually has at least one question for H.D. Weddel. "I always ask H.D. every time he comes over what the r oads are like," says Riley, longtime head football coach at Oregon State University. As just about any Central Oregonian will attest, trips over the Santiam Pass to the Willamette Valley can be challenging. Yet Weddel — the 55-year-old principal at Bend High School — makes the trip to Corval-

lis just about every week during the football season. As one of OSU's two football team chaplains, a position for which he has volunteered for the past seven years and shares with Tom Ramsay of Corvallis, Weddel will accompany the team to San Antonio for Saturday's Alamo Bowl between the Beavers and Texas. He receives no pay for this job. But for Weddel, being a team chaplain is his role in an Oregon State football "family" that he says he loves like his own. SeeBeavers /C4

Eighteen seasons later, with President Obama set to embark on his second term, Stackhouse still has a shaved head but now has gray hairs sprinkled into a fully-grown goatee and chooses layups over dunks in re-releasedmodels of those same shoes. When he first pulled on his No. 42 jersey with the Philadelphia 76ers, Stackhouse didn't realize he would be around long enough to see the NBA undergo so many transitions — from Michael Jordan dominating the league to LeBron James taking the reins as its best player — or that he would still be competing against players who were born in 1993, the year he graduated from high school. "If you would've asked when I was 20 if I still wanted to play when I was 38, I would've been like, 'Nah,' " said Stackhouse, who was drafted third overall out of North Carolina in 1995 but now serves as a valued reserve with the Brooklyn Nets.

Taylor Townsend, left, the world's No. 1 junior girls tennis player, poses with her mother, Shelia, in Boca Raton, Fla., earlier this month. As Townsend, 16, gets ready to turn professional, she draws comparisons to Serena Williams — including unflattering references to her physique and fitness.

PLANTATION, Fla. — The tennis coach Kathy Rinaldi settled into her folding beach chair near the court, out of the sun's range but close enough for her encouragement to be heard by her teenage pupil, Taylor Townsend. A few feet away, awoman, dressed from visor to sneakers in tennis whites, was speaking on her phone: "I'm getting ready to watch Taylor Townsend. She's the girl who looks like Serena." The setting was a December junior tournament, the Orange Bowl International Cham-

pionship, sanctioned by the U.S. Tennis Association and the International Tennis Federation, here at Veltri Tennis Center outside Fort Lauderdale. The 16-year-old Townsend was competing in the girls 18-and-under division for the final time after declaring her intention to play for pay starting in January. Townsend enters the professional ranks with credentials that unfurl like a red carpet: the 2012 Australian Open junior singles and doubles titles and the junior doubles title at this year's Wimbledon and U.S. Open.

owned the TexasRangers from 1974 to 1980 and wasn't afraid to regularly switch out managers, died on Christmas Eve. He was 75. Corbett's daughter, Pamela Corbett Murrin, told The Associated Press that her

No.3Arizona edges No.17San Diego State,staysunbeaten By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

HONOLULU — No. 3 Arizona is off to its best start in 25 years, thanks to a defensive play that no one saw coming — except for Nick Johnson. San Diego State guard Chase Tapley curled around a screen and burst down the left side of the lane in the closing seconds for what looked to be an uncontested layup. Johnson raced across and swatted the ball away, preserving the Wildcats' 68-67 win over the 17thranked Aztecs in the championship

game of the Diamond Head Classic on Tuesday night. "He made one hell o f a p l a y ," Tapley said. "I just have to tip my hat off to him. I didn't even know he was around. He just came out of nowhere. I'm thinking the game is over. The next thing you know, the ball is going off the backboard." Mark Lyons drove to the basket on Arizona's final possession and was fouled, making two free throws with 13 seconds left for the final points of

12 Conference play with its best start since the 1987-88 season, and with its first win over a ranked team away from home in four years. "It took two great plays on both offense and defense to secure the win," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "And we made both of them." Solomon Hill, voted the tournament MVP, kept Arizona in the game with 21 points and a stellar defensive effort on Jamaal Franklin, who scored only nine points to end his streak of 32 straight the game. Arizona (12-0) goes into Pac- games in double figures. With the

game tied at 66, Franklin was fouled driving to the basket with 31 seconds left, but missed one of two free throws. That turned out to be the difference. Tapley led the Aztecs (11-2) with 19 points. "It hurts," San Diego State coach Steve Fisher said. "It's hard when you have a chance to win a championship, have a shot to beat an undefeated team, and you don't quite get it done, and you think you're going to do it right until the very last play of the game. It hurts

Miami's LeBron James (6) dunks as the Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook (0) and the Heat's Mario Chalmers watch during the first half of Tuesday's game in Miami.

ea an e un er in ina srema c, The Associated Press MIAMI — L e B ron James and Kevin D urant e x changed words. Dwyane Wade and Serge Ibaka did a little shoving. Five technical fouls were called, and Russell Westbrook punched a table in frustration. This NBA F i nals rematch met expectations. And like that series, it ended with Miami on top. James had 29 points, nine assists and eight rebounds, Wade scored 21, and the Heat survived a frantic finish to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 103-97 on Tuesday. "Felt a little bit l ike a di fferent month," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said."Regardless ofwhat your script is coming into the game, when you play this team, it's not going to go according to script. They're too good." But on this night, much like last June, the Heat were better. Mario Chalmers scored a seasonhigh 20 for the Heat, who were 19 for 19 from the foul line, the second-best effort in franchise historybehind only a 30-for-30 game in Boston on March 24, 1993. Chris Bosh added 16 for Miami, which has beaten the Thunder five straight times going back to last June's title series. Durant scored33 points and Westbrook added 21 for Oklahoma City, but both Thunder stars missed potential game-tying 3-point attempts in the final seconds. "It was a great game. I can't complain," Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. "We could have done a better job of not turning the ball over in the first half. All in all, it was a great game to play and agreat game to coach. Unfortunately, we didn't come out with the win." The game had a little of everything — a fast start by the reigning cham-

pions, a one-handed dunk by James on an offensive rebound that will be added to his copious highlight reel, a scrum after a hard foul that led to double-technicals on Wade and Ibaka early in the fourth, an easy rally by the Thunder from an early doubledigit deficit, and even workout partners in Durant and James barking back and forth in the final minutes. Such was the intensity that James slumped over the scorer's table with 1:08 left, exhausted. "I'm tired as hell right now," James said — and that was more than an hour after the game ended. With good reason. On an emotional day, there was a wild finish. Wade lost the ball on an ill-advised, behind-the-backdribble, andtheturnover set up Durant for a two-handed dunk that got the Thunder within 9695 with 44.1 seconds remaining. Needing a stop on the next trip, the Thunder forgot to play defense instead. Kendrick Perkins and Ibaka both were confused on the ensuing Miami possession, and Bosh was left alone to take a pass from James and throw down a dunk that restored Miami's three-point edge. "We wentover and helped," Durant said. "We just needed to help on the backside. There was miscommunication but we still had a chance to go into overtime." Two chances, actually. O klahoma City got w i thin o n e when Durant made a jumper over James, but no closer.Ray Allen's two free throws with 15.6 seconds left made it 100-97, and Miami's last three points came from the line. Durant missed a 3-pointer that James contested, Westbrook wound up with a secondchance thatWade defended, and the Thunder guard smacked a nearby table arguing that he was

You lose some...

Don't look so glum

Kyle Stanley is a quiet man. This was a quiet celebration. One week after he made triple bogey on the 18th hole at Torrey Pines and then lost in a playoff, he rallied from eight shots behind on the final day with a 65 in the Phoenix Open to win his first PGA Tour event. It was a remarkable turnaround. One week he faced the media after his meltdown and fought back tears. The next week he was a winner. Stanley was invited to a Super Bowl party that night at the home of Jim Mackay, the longtime caddie of Phil Mickelson. He was late to the party because of the media o bligations that come with w i n ning. When h e f i n ally a r r ived, Stanley knocked andthen walked in the door holding the oversized winner's check over his head. He quietly placed it above the TV, and then sat down to watch the

Continued from C1 She is the first American to hold the No. I year-end world ranking for junior girls since Gretchen Rush in 1982. Because she is black and has a sturdy 5-foot-6 physique and strong ground strokes, Townsend often draws comparisons to Serena Williams, a 15-time major singles champion. Townsend said she was flattered to be mentioned in the same breath as one of the greatest players in the game's history. But occasionally, the sutfacecomparisons cut deep. In the Orange Bowl doubles final, Townsend and her partner, Gabrielle Andrews, powered to victory despite the heckling ofan elderly man who zeroed in on her race and her baby fat. For all Townsend's success this year, her appearance was what thrust her into the spotlight at the U.S. Open, the year's final major. The USTA, which oversees her training, tried to discourage her from playing in the Open, declining to pick up her expenses because she was not in

Taylor Townsend hits a shot on her way to winning the girls singles final at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia, in January of this year.

peak shape. Her mother paid her way, and when Townsend's plight became public, several prominent women in the sport rushed to her defense, including Williams and Lindsay Davenport, another sturdily built former world No. I whose fitness was questionedearly in hercareer. Describingthe controversy as unnecessary, Williams said, "Women athletes come in all different sizes and shapes and colors and everything." Rush, a mother of three teenagers who is now Gretchen Rush Magers, has watched opponents and the daughters of friendsstarve themselves to reach a body ideal personified by supermodels starting with Twiggy. She said she was disheartened that the focus was on Townsend's appearance and not on her results. "I'veknown women who have battled anorexia who are no longer with us, so I'm very sensitive to body issues," Rush M agers, the women's tennis coach forthe Claremont-Mudd-Scripps team in California, said in a telephone interview. Her feelings about the subject are so strong that she said she has encouraged her team to attend a February campus lecture by the mother ofa young woman who died of complications from anorexia. Townsend eventually r eceived an apology from the USTA. The emphasis on her appearance has made Townsend stronger in ways that cannot be measured by any body composition test, said her mother, Shelia, who played tennis at Division II Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo. "I love the game of tennis so much because it mirrors the game of life so much," said Shelia Townsend, who continued: "At the end of the day, you have to stand on what you've learned and fall back on what you know and everything you've been taught. Overall, what Taylor's been through this year has helped her to become more self-assured and even stronger in who she is and not have to look for the approval of somebody else. At

NFL Continued from C1 When the season started, who could have expected Manning to recapture his MVP play so quickly with a new team? Or for Petersonto come back lessthan nine months after shredding his left knee? Or for Jamaal Charles to return better than ever after suffering a similar injury'? Then there's Pagano beating the biggest opponent of his life. A year ago, Manning was in the midst of fourneck operations to fix a nerve injury that had caused his right arm to atrophy and had sidelined him for an entire season. Soon, he would say a tearful farewell to Indianapolis, a city he'd put back onthe NFL map, and hook up with John Elway in Denver. Peterson's left knee was still swollen after he'd shredded it on Christmas Eve, an injury similar to the one Charles suffered earlier last season. Yet both would defy medicine and conventional wisdom alike to rebound as better runners than they were before getting hurt. Pagano's fight started three months ago when it was disclosed he had cancer, forcing the first-year Colts coach to take time off for chemotherapy treatments. He returned to work this week, taking the reins from assistant Bruce Arians, who guided the team to a surprising playoff berth in his absence. "When I asked for Bruce to take over, I asked for him to kick some you-knowwhat and to do great. Damn Bruce, you had to go and win nine games?" Pagano said. "Tough act to follow." If all goes well at practice this week, Pagano will be on the sideline for the regular-season finale against Houston. That's a final tuneup for the AFC wildcard playoffs that nobody saw coming for the Colts so soon after cutting ties with Manning, who switched teams, coaches, cities and colors and didn't miss a beat in 2012. Despite a new supporting cast and a 36-year-old body he insists continues to confound him, the quintessential quarterback has had one of the best seasons in his storied career. Manning set franchise orNFL records just about every week while completing 68 percent of his passes for 4,355 yards with 34 TDs and just 11 interceptions. And yet, he insists he's not anything close to what he used to be, that all he can do is maximize what's left in a body that's been slowed by so many surgeons' scalpels, and trips around the sun.

prise to Locey. "Once H.D. shared (his message) a couple times, it was just kind of like, 'Boy, this guy is special,'" Locey says. "So it didn't take long at all for H to be just who he is and just share the messagesthathe shares."

the end ofthe day, her results speak for themselves." A pro career was not the end game when Townsend and her older sister, Symone, took up the sport. Education is the family's focus. The girls' father, Gary, is a high school principal in Georgia, and their mother works as a budget manager at Boca Raton High. "Our goal was to have them be able to pick whatever college they wanted to go to," Shelia Townsend said. "Tennis was the vehicle." Symone Townsend is a freshman on the Florida A&M tennis team. When her family's budget could not keep pace with her progress, Taylor Townsend followed a different path. In 2011 she moved to Florida to immerse herself in tennis, with all expenses paid, as a player in the USTA development program. It mirrored the collegiate experience in that Townsend moved into a dormitory, worked in classes around tennis and was apart from her family until her mother, who is divorced from her father, joined her in Florida this summer. Townsend has always driven the bus, so to speak. At 5, her mother recalled, Townsend was accepted into a gifted program at a school across town. She had to take a school bus every day, which picked her up after her parents had left for work. A neighbor would keep an eye on her, but Townsend embraced her independence. "She's always kind of danced to a different drummer," Shelia Townsend said. Taylor Townsend'sgame reflects her disdain for being pigeonholed or penned in. It's a blending of Williams' power, Billie Jean King's soft hands and Pam Shriver's conviviality. At t h e O range Bowl tournament, she was quick to acknowledge her opponent's winners by clapping the face of her racket. After h e r fou r t h-round v i c tory, Townsend was on her way to grab a snack when she saw another American,

"I know you don't believe me when I say this; I'm still learning about myself physically and what I can do, it's still the truth," Manning said after guiding Denver to its 10th straight win. "I still have things that are harder than they used to be, so (there's) things I have to work on from a rehab standpoint and a strength standpoint. That's just the way it is and maybe that's the way it's going to be from here on out, I don't know." Maybe Manning's being modest, maybe he's suckering opponents into blitzing him more often so he can burn them again. Either way, it's a remarkable rebound for a man whose right arm was so weakened after one of his neck surgeries that he could hardly throw the football 15 yards. Long before Manning everdreamed he'd bewearing the orange-mane mustang on his helmet instead of the blue and white horseshoe, Manning met up with college buddy Todd Helton of the Colorado Rockies for a workout during last year's NFL lockout. They retreated to an indoor batting cage at Coors Field with a trainer in tow, and Manning's first pass nose-dived so badly that Helton told him to quit goofing around. Manning wasn't messing with him. He was dead serious. His arm was shot, his future in football in doubt. A few days later, he underwent spinal fusion surgery and would miss the entire 2011 season. If doctors had told him that was it, Manning said he would have called it a career without regret. But they gave him a bit of hope and that's all he needed to embark on his comeback in Colorado. Coach John Fox, never one to lobby for awards, suggested this week that Manning deserves a fifth MVP honor for the numbers he's put up, the obstacles he's overcome, the shift of culture he's engineered. Manning isn't interested in talking about MVPs or comeback awards. He just wants enough wins to get a shot at hoisting another Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans in six weeks. Peterson, on the other hand, is unabashedly clear in his desire for some recognition after overcoming torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, requiring the kind of reconstructive surgery that usually turns dominant players into ordinary ones. There's a long, long list of players who had shortened careers because of such injuries. But Peterson returned to the Vikings lineup less than nine months

the 17-year-old Allie Kiick, heading off to play her 18-and-under match. Townsend stopped to offer Kiick strategy for beating her opponent. "I kind of try to make friends with everyone so everything's nice and peachy," she said. Townsend's smile lit up the Orange Bowl courts when she nearly did splits as she slid in pursuit of a ball or hit a drop shot from the baseline that landed on the other side of the net with a sorcerer's spin. Using delicate drop shots and deft volleys to augment her fierce ground strokes, Townsend advanced to the semifinals in the singles on clay, not her favorite surface. She staved off a set point in a straightsets victory in the first round and outlasted her quarterfinal opponent in a threeset, 3-hour-49-minute endurance test, her run ending in the semifinals with a three-set loss to Ana Konjuh, a 14-yearold Croat with blinding power from both sides. Afterward, Konjuh, who is taller and more muscular than Townsend, weighed in on her opponent's fitness. "She's very talented and smart and plays great like that," Konjuh said. "But if she wants to be a pro, she has to lose some weight. In the second set, I felt she couldn't run as much. If she gets fit, she can be a really, really good player." Townsend said she planned to improve her conditioning in the weeks before her first two pro events in Florida in January. Her mothersaid:"When Serena came out, to have somebody who looks like her in every way — body shape and ethnicity — and has gone through similar experiences, it resonated a lot with Taylor. Taylor's never going to be a size 5, and that's OK. We just want her to be as strong and as healthy as she can be, where her body can perform at an optimal level. What it looks like at the end of the day, that's what it is."

after his operation, and with a leaguehigh 1,898 yards, he's 207 yards shy of Eric Dickerson's single-season record. He can topple it with another big game Sunday when Minnesota faces Green Bay with a playoff berth on the line for the Vikings. With typical unflinching confidence, Peterson said in a recent interview with The Associated Press he's expecting to win the comeback award. "I kind of have that in the bag, especially how I've been telling people I'm going to come back stronger and better than ever," he said. Carrying the Vikings to th e playoffs without a potent passing game in a league dominated by strong-armed, accurate quarterbacks would only burnish the credentials of this thoroughbred throwback. In any other year, the zenith of comebacks might be that of Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis, who battled back from three torn right ACLs — in 2009, 2010 and 2011 — to be a major contributor to the Panthers this year. No player in NFL history has returned after tearing the same ACL three separate times. Charles missed nearly all of 2011 with a torn left ACL. Yet the former All-Pro running back has run for 1,456 yards, the seventh-best season in franchise history. He can break his single-season-high set in 2010 with 12 yards against the Broncos on Sunday. Charles ran for 226 yards last weekend, when he surpassed 750 career carries, which also qualifies him for the NFL record for yards per carry. Charles is averaging 5.82 yards on 770 attempts, which far surpasses the 5.22 yards that Hall of Famer Jim Brown averaged in 2,359 attempts from 1957-65. Charles, Peterson and Davis are all better than ever. Manning might be, too, but he'll never say it. "I'm trying to be as good as I can at this stage," Manning said. "A 36-year-old quarterback coming offa year and ahalf off, playing on a new team, I'm trying to be as good as I possibly can in this scenario. "It's a different kind of body I'm playing in and just a different kind of quarterback play for me." Yet, as transcendent as ever. "If he's lost anything, I can't see it," said Broncos receiver Brandon Stokley, who played with Manning in his prime in Indianapolis. "I'm sure in some ways he'sbetter than he ever was. And he's always been great."

An Oregon State graduate and a former wrestler at the school, Weddel has deep roots in Corvallis. In college, Weddel struck up a close friendship with Jay Locey,OSU's current assistant head coach, and the two were roommates for a few years after college. And at tiny L i nfield College in McMinnville — where Locey coachedfootballfor 23 years, including 10 years as head coach — Weddel (who spent much of hi s teaching career in Tigard and McMinnville high schools) got his start as a chaplain. He spent 20 years as a spiritual leader of Linfield's football program. And along the way, Weddel forged a relationship with Danny Langsdorf, a former Linfield quarterback who is now the Beavers' offensive coordinator. So when Riley was looking for somebody to guide his players beyond just the field, Locey and Langsdorf knew the right man for the job. "He's always been gifted that way," says Locey of Weddel. "He just brings energy. He's fun, pleasant, positive, upbeat, enthusiastic. That's just the way he is. And that's the way he has always been." Weddel, who had taught at Bend High in the 1990s, returned to the school in 2005 as assistant principal. Still, he was willing to perform a balancing act between his school duties, his family responsibilities (he is married and the father of two daughters) and 275mile round trips to Corvallis. "It is a natural fit because of my relationship with a lot of

Riley considers Weddel an i mportant member o f " t h e family" at O SU, something Weddel does not take lightly. Weddel can turn most questions about his chaplain duties into a commendation of the Oregon State coaching staff,

especially Riley. One of Riley's traits, in particular, allows Weddel to have an impact with the team, the chaplain says. "Coach Riley is all about c haracter; it's really big t o him," Weddel says. "That's

why his program is deep and not just wide. There is depth to him, and the whole coaching staff, for that matter. That's why that coaching staff stays together." This season has been a high point for the Beavers: nationallyranked aftera 9-3 season. But the lows are still fresh. Just last year, the Beavers struggled to a brutal 3-9 season. Worse yet, in December, Oregon State freshman defensive tackle Fred Thompson collapsed and died while play-

ing an on-campus pickup basketball game. Weddel presidedover a memorial service for Thompson. "That was low," Weddel says of Thompson's death. "That one hurt." But Weddel speaks with pride about what has happened since, including a turnaround on the field. "Because there was such a foundation built around peo-

ple, (the program) survived

those guys," Weddel says. On the night before games, Weddel — who is not an ordained minister but describes himself as a deeply Christian man — hosts voluntary chapels for OSU's players and staff in the team's hotel, even for home games. And at 9 p.m., he addressesthe entire team with words of encouragement and lessons about character, something he draws from his 34 years as an educator, he says. "We make it very relevant to the week, relevant to the season, and relevant to their lives," says Weddel, who speaks on topics such a s m o t ivation, perseverance, dedication, sacrifice, teamwork, and dealing with adversity and v i ctory. "We'll tie in how it affects the game as well as their lives." Saturdays he spends on the Beaver sidelines, mostly as a cheerleader.But according to Riley, it is the work he does the night before that has endeared him to the OSU program.

well because the priorities are in the right spot," Weddel says. "So when you face adversity like that, you are able to handle it better because the right things are in the right place." Weddel has played no small part in making sure the direction of the football program stays true, Riley says. He has forged a close bond with Riley's players and inspires them to make better decisions in life. "It's bigger than a half-hour on a Friday night," Riley says of Weddel's mentoring. "Those kind o f t h i ngs ar e r e ally, really meaningfuL Those are what I hope are the meat of the

By Bob Clark The (Eugene) Register-Guard

It could be the biggest advantage Kansas State has over Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. Or will penalties not matter at all? The difference statistically is striking. The Wildcats are one of the least-penalized teams in the country, finishing tied for second-fewest with 42 total and third in yardage with an average of 28.8 in their 12

games. In the same number of games, Oregon was flagged 98 times, and the average penalty yardage of 74.3 for the Ducks ranked them 116th in the nation. Here's why the numbers could be much closer in the Fiesta Bowl: These officials come from the Atlantic Coast Conference, where teams are typically among the leastpenalized in the nation. Officials are always supposed to be impartial. In bowl games, there's an extra attempt to make sure of that by assigning the officiating crews from leagues that don't include either of the participating teams. Not, of course, that there should be any difference in the officiating from one conference to another. "It was always different," said Mike Bellotti, now an ESPN analyst who was head coach atOregon for a dozen bowl games. "There is not supposed to be a big difference, but there always is." Bellotti said before he coached in a bowl game, he had two questions for the officials: how do they interpret holding by offensive blockers, and what is pass interference? "I'd always get answers," Bellotti said, "but what I was trying to get a sense for was, are they sticklers?" It certainly seems as though Pac-12 officials are just that. Along with Oregon, four other Pac-12 teams ranked among the 11 most-penalized teams in the country this season. Is it a conference made up of teams that push the rules? "I don't see that necessarily," Bellotti said. "But statistically that's what comes out." C ommissioner Larr y S c ott e ven a d dressed the issue of Pac-12 officials calling a tighter game than the rest of the nation in a late-November posting on the conference's website, explaining that "I've asked our head of football operations and head of officiating to ... do a comparative study. I'd like a thoughtful answer to that question" of why Pac-12 games include more penalties than elsewhere. Most conference coaches willbe anxious tohear the answer, weary of seeing so many penalty flags in a typical Pac-12 game. So maybe a Pac-12 team should be welcoming an officiating crew from the ACC. Of that conference's 12 teams, eight ranked in the top half of the country in fewest penalty yards during the regular season, and just one was lower than 86th out of 120; among Pac-12 teams, only Arizona State ranked in the top half nationally, and seven came in lower than 86th. Oregon had an officiating crew from the ACC for last year's Rose Bowl against Wisconsin. Afterthe Ducks averaged seven penalties for 65 yards during the 2011 season, they were almost exactly on that in the Rose Bowl as ACC officials flagged them seven timesfor56 yards. So what happens in the Fiesta Bowl'? Asked about officiating in bowl games, UO defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti said, "I know I've got to be careful with what I say here, but I think officials from other leagues are a lot more lenient. I'll use that word: lenient." Which is what Aliotti wants on calls such as passinterference, though he'd naturally prefer that offensive holding was called more closely. For Oregon's offense, coordinator Mark Helfrich primarily wants consistency. He said the differences in the interpretation of rules from conference is somewhat to be expected. "You think about it a little bit and maybe try to influence it a little bit beforehand," Helfrich said of officiating and possible differences. "It's fairly standard, but everybody is human and one umpire is going to be different from another." Helfrich's primary plea to officials would be to treat both teams the same throughout the game. Where he sees that isn't true is when an opponent's offense tries to speed up its pace of play late in the first half or when trailing late in the game, and officials "are sprinting around" to put the football in place and quickly allow the offense to snap it. "We want to do that the whole game" but aren't always allowed to, Helfrich contends. "That is sometimes a source of frustration."

ting drafted after one or two years in college, many of those older players, such as Bryant, Nash, Garnett, Allen, Kidd, Paul Pierce and Tim Duncan, are still playing prominent roles on relevant teams in the championship hunt. "I think it's great," said Kidd, who is averaging 29.4 minutes per game for the New York Knicks and will turn 40 in March. "That goes to show that the wisdom and understanding how to play the game sometimes can overshadow talent." Kidd hugged Bryant before the Knicks played the Lakers in New Yorktwo weeks ago and said, "What up, young fella?" But Bryant is proving that while he may lack the same athleticism as in his Afro-rocking youth, his talent hasn't eroded much as he gets older. Bryant, is leading the league with 29.7 points per game, the highest

scoring average of any player age 34 or older. He is also shooting a career-best47.1 percent from the field, playing heavy minutes despite a litany of ailments, including a bad back. "I'm sore, but I'm just in really good condition. I'm just not tired," Bryant said recently. He told reporters earlier this season that he still plays at an elite level because, "I'm just a bad mother." Pierce,35, recently became the second-oldestplayer to record consecutive games with a t l east 35 points, trailing only Jordan, who had games of 51 and 45 at age 38 in the first year of his comeback with the Washington Wizards. Duncan continues to tap into the Riverwalk of youth in San Antonio; last week in Denver the 36-year-old power forward had his first game with at least 30 points, 18 rebounds and five blocked shots in 11 years. His production per 36 minutes is almost identical to what he contributed 10 years ago, when he won the second of consecutive league MVP awards. Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich keeps Duncan at a minutes limit to keep him rested and fresh, but marvels at how he can stay so effective after appearing in 1,139 regular season games and another 190 postseason games. "For some magicalreason, some strange elixir that he's found. He and Kevin Garnett have found it, and nobody else has, besides, maybe Jason Kidd," Popovich said with a laugh. "The training techniques are really advanced and they go year-round, so it's not surprising that they can extend their careers the way they have. What they put into their bodies are real important to them. The contracts are big. They know somebody is waiting in line, so they better take care of themselves." The Knicks have taken veteran p resence to t h e e x t r eme. W i t h

Thomas (40), Kidd, Camby (38), Rasheed Wallace (38) and 35-year-old rookie Pablo Prigioni, they have fielded the oldest team in NBA history, with an average age of nearly 33. "Those are the guys that are winning titles, when you look at it," Knicks Coach Mike Woodson said of 30-somethings."We didn't ask our old players to come in and play 30 or 40 minutes. We asked them to be a nice piece to the puzzle and that's what we think we've assembled here." Ten years ago, the NBA had 54 players that were born in the 1960s. This season, there are 37 players that were born in the 1970s. But the currentgeneration of NBA veterans has played during the most lucrative financial period in league history, as nine of the 11 players with at least 16 years of experience have earned well over nine figures.

Chevrolet, GMC trucks recalled A welding error by a supplier has forced the recall of 119,000 Chevrolet Colorado and

GMC Canyon trucks from the 2010 through

2012 model years, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The error, discovered

by General Motors during the inspection of

faulty hoods on several vehicles, caused asecondary latch to be left off the construction of the hood. That is a safe-

By Elon Glucklich The city of Bend will distribute $900,000 in loans for affordable housing and lowincome rental development in 2013. Developers have a chance to submit bids for city assistance on housing projects that increase the supply of lowincome housing in the city, according to a news release. The funds are part of the city's Affordable Housing Fee Program. Since 2006, the city has added a fee of one-third of I percent of the value on

Eligible proposals must meet a number of priorities set by the Bend Affordable Housing Program. The city's highest-priority needs are to increase the supply of rental housing for residents at 30 to 50 percent of Bend's median income. For a family of four, that would be an annual income of $19,900 to $33,200. Other high priorities are low-income housing for elderly residents and victims of domestic abuse, along with facilities for the homeless, according to the city. But a number of different

a store's overall profits. It's also a fast-growing category. "If you can figure out how to deliver consistent quality and the products consumers want, fresh food is attractive because margins are higher, and it addresses some of the competitive issues you're facing," said Richard Meyer, a longtime consultant for the conveniencestore industry. "But it's not easy to do." A s 7-Eleven refocuses its lineup, the retail chain has assembled a team of culinary and food science experts to study industry trends and develop new products. Such groups have been around for a while at fast-food restaurants like McDonald's and packaged-goods manufacturers like Kraft. But it's a relatively new concept for players like 7-Eleven, which have typically relied on their suppliers to provide product innovation. "We're working to create a portfolio of fresh foods," said Anne Readhimer, senior directoroffresh food innovation, who joined the company in May from Yum! Brands, where she had worked on the KFC and Pizza Hut brands. "Some will be for snacking, some for a quick meal, but we hope everything we offer our guests is convenient and tasty."

The chain that is home of the Slurpee, Big Gulp, and self-serve nachos with chili and cheese is betting that consumers will stop in for yogurt parfaits, crudite and lean turkey on whole wheat bread. 7-Eleven, the convenience store chain, is restocking its shelves with an eye toward health. Over the last year, the retailer has introduced a line of freshfoods forthe calorieconscious and trimmed down its more indulgent fare by creating portion-size items. The change is as much about consumers' expanding waistlines as the company's bottom line. By 2015, the retailer aims to have 20 percent ofsalescome from fresh foods in its U.S. and Canadian stores, up from about 10 percentcurrently,according to a company spokesman. "We're aspiring to be more of a food and beverage company, and that aligns with what the consumer now wants, which is more tasty, healthy, fresh-food choices," said Joseph DePinto, the chief executive of 7-Eleven, a subsidiary of the Japanese company Seven 8r i Holdings.

LOS ANGELES — Some blockbuster new characters — Katniss Everdeen, Ted the foul-mouthed bear — joined some familiar ones (Batman, Bond, Baggins) to deliver a lift to moviegoing in North America in 2012, increasing attendance by 5.6 percent after two years of declines. Projections show that about 1.36 billion people will see films this year, compared with 1.29 billion in 2011. Ticket revenue at North American theaters is projected to jump by 6 percent, to $10.8 billion, according to Paul Dergarabedian, a box-office analyst for What really matters, however, is that Hollywood achievedthe increase without raising prices. The anticipated lift in attendance, which factors in crowds for two big movies that are to open on Christmas

Day, "Django Unchained"

and "Les Miserables," would be the industry's biggest yearly increase since 2002. Lately, studios and publicly traded theater chains like Regal Entertainment suffered drops in annual attendance, forcing them to prop up revadmission and concessions. "I really believe that momentum from weekend to weekend is crucial — that was fun, let's come back — and we had sustained periods of that this year," said Greg Foster, chairman of Imax Filmed Entertainment. Imax's domestic ticket revenue will end the year up 50 percent, he said, the result of popular movies and an increasing reliance on Imax by studios as a way to differentiate releases.

Most importantly, during a job interview, you need to be able to explain why your employment was terminated. You can count on every employer asking: "Why did you leave

Take the negative and turn it into a positive. A suggested response could be: "For years, I was a valued, hardworking employee who al-

• Createnostalgiaat oneof Central Oregon'sskating rinks By Heidi Hagemeier The Bulletin

I didn't grow up with bucolic scenes of ice skating on frozen ponds and earmuffs fluffy and cute on my head. Instead, my early ice-skating memories take place in the mall. Whitesnake, Journey or something else tres '80s blared as we teetered around under fluorescent lights. Then, famished, we went to a parlor to eat deep-dish pizza and play Ms. Pac-Man. Yet I still feel a Rockwellian longing about ice skating during the holiday season. Last week during a visit to Seventh

Mountain Resort, I felt that wave of nostalgia at the idea of gliding on ice, perhaps with hot cocoa in hand. I hadn't even come to ice skate — my daughter's school holds its annual holiday recital there. But a storm had swept through just moments before, coating the ground and trees with fresh snow. A twinkling spray of stars filled the sky. The natural splendor, plus festive white lights, framed the Seventh Mountain's outdoor ice rink. And those people gliding on the ice genuinely looked like they were having fun. SeeOuting /D4

• Piles of powder iswhat manyskiers andsnowboarders dreamof, but theyshould take precautions MOUNT BACHELORhe snow was thigh-deep, and like every powder day, it was a mad scramble to get fresh tracks before the opportunity was gone. It was last Tuesday at Mt. Bachelor ski area, but it felt like a Saturday. The parking lot appeared nearly full with cars after 26 inches of light, dry snow had fallen in the previous 24 hours. The temperature was holding steady at a frigid, champagne-powder-producing 10 degrees. I hopped off the lift and onto the run, and immediately my board sank into the snow. I could not see my knees as I concentrated on leaning back and not getting mired in the 2 feet of powder. I turned my way down the run, the light snow spraying over my head on the heel-side turns and shooting be-

Powder days have been a near constant at Oregon ski resorts during the latter half of December. By last Friday, Bachelor had been pounded with 4 t/~ feet of snow in five days, and Hoodoo Ski Area, near Sisters, had received nearly 4 feet in five days. While fresh snow is what many skiers andboarders live for,they should be advised that extremely deep days, like last Tuesday, call for a heightened focus on technique and safety. SeeDeep/D2

Up on Goat Mountain with a bow and arrow Last season, 8,328 Oregon hunters applied for II Rocky Mountain goat tags. Redmond's Lucas Schmidt, 26, beat the odds. At daybreak Sept. 7, Schmidt and his father, Keith Schmidt, as well as Kevin Samuel, Jeff Dunn and David O'Connor started up the trail to Goat Mountain. Goat tags are awarded without respect to experience, fitness or age. A hunter has less than three months to get in goat shape and some give up before they start. Few hunters opt to make it harder. Lucas Schmidt carried a Hoyt AlphaMax 35 compound


bow. Yes,hehadariflefora backup, but he planned for a shot with his bow at 50 yards or less. Only a few hunters have attempted to take a goat with a bow. Schmidt knew of only one othermodern archer that had succeeded. To add to the difficulty, he enlisted Dunn and O'Connor, of Faith in the Field, to film his hunt. SeeLewis/D5

Howourgadgets drive usnuts • British psychologists

By Brett Prettyman The Salt Lake Tribune

Humans have long recognized the value of " getting away from it all," but a new study, co-written by a Univer-

sity of Utah psychology professor, attempts to put a measurable meaning on the old

saying. David Strayer pondered the value of respites from the real world during trips to southern Utah starting tw o d e cades


wild were an average of 6.08 correct with a 4.14 average for those who took the test before thetrip. "The constant bombardment oftechnology and urban life is draining the frontal portion of the brain, suppressing problem-solving, decision making and creativity," said Strayer, who teaches a "Cognition in the Wild" class through the University of Utah in the backcountry of southern Utah. "When you get away from that hustle and bustle and out in nature, where it is soft and fascinating, your brain can replenish, become sharper and focus on thinking." Author and longtime escaping-to-nature advocate Richard Louv says it is unfortunate that an argument for the value of human connection with nature has to depend on numbers, but he is glad to see researchers f i nally g e t ting around to it. "Only recently has the science world looked into the connection with any seriousness," Louv said when contacted about the new study. "Nobody thought to ask these questions 30 or 40 years ago. Everything now seems like it has to be evidence-based. It is good tosee strides being made in that direction." Louv, who coined the catchphrase "Nature Deficit Disorder" in his book Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder, said all humans crave time in the outdoors. "It is there but it is increasingly more and more extremel y subliminally b u r ied b y all the sirens of technology," Louv said. "The desire isthere and we feel it, but we can't focus on it because of all of the distractions." Louv is leading a charge to inform people of the inherent need to enjoy nature.

As his own studies eventually revealed, those moments spent i n r e d r ock c o untry turned out to be the best time for Strayer to b e t h i n king about the connection. "We start to t hink differently when out in nature. Our thoughts become more clear, more coherent,not as fragmented," Strayer said. "I started looking at this idea 20 years ago when I moved to Utah. I started building a library on some of the research that had been done. I was surprised there was not as much research as should have been done." R esults of t h e s t udy b y Strayer and University of Kansas psychologists Ruth Ann Atchley and Paul Atchley in PLOS ONE, an online journal of the Public Library of Science, were released recently. The most-telling n umber from the research is 50 percent: As in backpackers scored 50 percent better on a creativity test after four days in nature and away from smartphones, iPods and laptops. Strayer and the other researchers sent 56 people, with an average age of 28, on fourto six-day wilderness trips in Colorado, Maine, Alaska and Washington state. Twenty-four of the Outward Bound expedition participants took a 10-question creativity test the morning before they began the backpacking trip.

about the right to be disconnected from all technology'?" he asked. "We need that affiliation, that connection with nature. Without it, we do not remain fully human." Strayer and the A tchleys used the long-standing and widelyrecognized Remote AssociatesTest for the research. The exam gives participants 10 sets of three words with the task of coming up with a fourth word linked to the others. Researchers pointed out in their report that the in-thefield testing was different than previous studies. "The current s t ud y is unique," the study said, "in that participants were exposed to nature over a sustained period and they were still in that natural setting during testing."

Continued from D1 When snowboarding in deep snow, I try to shift my weight onto my back foot and lean back, not wanting to get the tip of my board stuck in the snow on a flat stretch. But effective technique for boarding and skiing involves more than just getting your weight back. "You need to be centered, and just working that ski or board so that you keep moving and you don'tget completely buried," said Tom L o m ax , B a c helor mountain manager at Mt. Bachelor. "You don't want to dive your tips all the way down. It's sort of a balancing act. You don't want to go over the front and bury yourself, and y o u d o n 't want to be way in the back because you won't have any control." It is also crucial to select a good stopping point during a run, as I realized last week. Stopping in the flats in 2 feet of unpacked snow can make gettingback up quite a challenge. It's best to stop on a steeper portion



of a groomed run. A fter faew runs near the Pine Marten and Skyliner chairlifts, I got word from a lift operator that the Northwest Express chairlift had just opened for the day, offering access to more than 3 feet of untouched snow because it was closed the previous day. But I was late in getting there, and a huge line had formed as the lift had stalled. After a h alf-hour of waiting in line, I finally boarded the Northwest lift. But by the time I reached the top, I w a s shivering cold and not interested in a nother long wait at t h e bottom. So Iheaded back to Pine Marten — probably a wise choice considering the potential for danger on a deep snow day off the Northwest hft. "Northwest has the longer, steeper, deeper slopes that everybody is a fter," Lomax said. "And again, that's the area where people really need to t h ink about what they're doing and make sure they're with a partner and in view of them." If skiing the bowls west of the Northwest lift, perhaps the most important thing to know is to not cross the catch line — a groomed, flat track that leads back to the lift. When snowriders cross the well-signed track, they are out of the ski-area boundary. L omax says a s n o w boarder last week separated from a group of friends, crossed the catch line and had to post-hole in waistdeep snow for nearly two hours to make it back to the Northwest lift by 3:30 p.m., when the lift typically closes and just an hour before dark. The boarder had no cellphone, so his friends eventually contacted ski patrol. The snowboarder

Two ski patrollers test out the fresh new powder while skiing below the Pine Marten chairlift. was fine — but it could have been much worse. "I told him he would have died that night," Lomax said. "Because of those conditions, he really put himself at risk. I've ran into that before. They think they're riding together, but they're not keeping an eye on each other." Lomax stresses the importance of not only riding with a partner, but keeping a visual on that partner at all times. This is particularly crucial on deep powder days when tree wells become perhaps the most significant danger on the mountain. Heavy snowfall in a short period of time, like last week's conditions, can create serious tree-wellhazards, according to Lomax. Boughs of trees create voids or areas of unconsolidated snow around the trunks of trees. Skier or boarders can get stuck in these areas — and a head-first landing in such an area is often lethal. "You think about your body size and your w eight, and it pretty much is like a torpedo going down toward that trunk," Lomax said. Lomax touts the w ebsite as a leading r esource o n t r e e-well safety. He says one of the most important things for snowriders toremember is to focus on the gapsbetween trees,rather than the trees themselves. "Even in mountain biking, when you're riding singletrack and you start focusing on that tree on the corner, you're go-

focus on the openings between the trees. If you find yourself falling toward a tree, you need to do whatever you can to try to throw yourself to the side,

grab a hold of the boughs, or throw your skis or snowboard up in front of you."

Avalanche safety

Another danger on d eep snow days is avalanchesyes, even at ski resorts. Bachelor and most other resorts have ski patrollers who mitigate avalanche danger each morning, but that does not mean avalanches do not occur at resorts. Last week, a 20-year-old skier, Emily Anderson, was reportedly caught in a slide at W a s h ington's C r y s t al Mountain Resort near Mount Rainier. She was buried with her left hand near her mouth, a ccording t o A B C Ne w s . Slowly, she was able to dig the snow away from her face and clear a small space in order to breathe. A friend saw Anderson get caught in the avalanche and ski patrol dug her out after she was buried for 15 minutes. "If you're caught in a slide, you need to do whatever you can to stay on the surface," Lomax said. "If you feel yourself getting buried in the snow, you try to get an arm up and create an air pocket. And hopefully you have a partner that has seen what's happened to you."

Trail update Continued from 01 Snowshoers are welcome to use the standard blue diamond ski t r ails but should not walk on the ski tracks. Snowshoers are encouraged to seek out snowshoe trails where available and m a ke use ofthose before using the ski trails. Inevitably snowshoers will end up walking on a broken ski track, and because snowshoes have a wider track and there is no center line it m akes things more difficult for them. On the flip side, skiers have rec eived injuries when a s k i track has b een obliterated by snowshoe tracks. There are d e signated s n owshoe trails (blue diamond with a yellow snowshoe symbol) at Meissner, Swampy, Dutchman and Edison sno-parks — a total of 22 miles of trail. Skiers should be aware that if a snowshoer has set the track in a ski trail, the skier should set a separate track to the side, preferably leaving a 2- to 3-foot space between the them. The motto for skiers and snowshoers is "share the snow, not the tracks."

Outing Continued from 01 It was an ah-ha moment: An ideal time to try out your skating legs — particularly if you adore Jingle Bell-schmoopiness like I do — is during the holidays. There areopportunities for ice skating throughout Central Oregon, with supervised, m aintained rinks i n B e n d, Redmond and Sunriver (see "If you go"). All rent ice skates. While they will all be operating for the winter months, weather permitting, Seventh M o untain Resort and The Village at Sunriver Ice Rink both are offering extended hours through the next week and a half. Days later, full of cheer, I packed myhusband and daughter into the car for an early evening outing at The Village at Sunriver's ice skating rink. Central O r e gonians w h o haven't been to Sunriver lately will find th e v i l lage transf ormed. T h e '70s facades are gone, and the multimillion-dollar r e m o deling j o b has attractednew businesses to make for vacation-in-mybackyard quaintness. The ice r i n k u n d erwent an upgrade about two years ago as part of that process. It's open-air yet covered, and see-through screens can be pulled down along the sides to accommodate for blustery weather. There is also a heated room where one can sit and watch the skaters through large windows. Its best feature is a gas fireplace that also faces the outside, where there are several stone benches facing it. We gingerly stepped out on to the ice. I'm not sure Norman Rockwell envisioned his skaters listening to a reggae version of "The Little Drummer Boy." But even so, the snow was fluttering down and the scene was lovely. Hockey players also regularly u se this r i n k, a s t h e paint beneath the ice indicates. Several skaters thi s night seemed to know what they were doing. One tween in royal blue pants executed spins and extended her leg behind her like a ballerina, producing wide-eyed delight in my 4-year-old.

CENTRAL ZONE ANTELOPEFLAT RESERVOIR: Fishing has been fair. The changingweathermay make travel difficult so be prepared for muddy or snowy road conditions. Anglers should be very careful when venturing onto the ice and follow safety procedures. BEND PINENURSERYPOND: The most recent stocking was in late September with a number of one-pound rainbow released. CRESCENT LAKE: Opportunities for rainbow and brown trout are good. CROOKED RIVERBELOW BOWMAN DAM: Fishing for trout has been good. Water levels have been consistent and fish are feeding on small mayfly and midge nymphs. It appears the whitefish spawn is tapering off. The use of bait is prohibited until May. DESCHUTESRIVER(MOUTH TO THEPELTON REGULATING DAM): Summer steelhead fishing on the Lower Deschutes is fair, as water clarity has improved significantly. Fish arenow welldispersed throughout the river, with good numbers of fish found by anglers from the mouth upstream to theWarm Springs area. Fishing remains good for trout downstream from theWarm Springs Reservation Boundary. FALL RIVER: Fishing is good. The river belowthe falls closed on Sept. 30; the river above the falls is open all year. Fishing is restricted to fly-fishing only with barbless hooks. LAKE BILLYCHINOOK: Fishing for bull trout has been good. Anglers are reminded there are small numbers of spring chinookand summer steelhead in Lake Billy Chinook as part of the reintroduction effort.

Lewis Continued from D1 From the trailhead to camp, theelevation change was 3,000 feet in 6.5 miles. Schmidt's party based camp a half-mile short of the hunt area. That evening they spotted goats from theridge. One of the hardest parts of hunting mountain goats is field-judging; nannies and billies grow horns, both are legal game. Sometimes the nanny's horns are longer than a billy's, although the horns on a male have more mass. The biggest difference is that the horns of a male curl over their entire length while a nanny's horns rise straight up and then curl back. And trophy goats are loners, which makes them hard to gauge against each other. For length, the hunter can compare thehorn to the ears. For a trophy, the length should be two-and-one-half times the visible length of the ear. Next, look at t h e b ases. Viewed straight on, the horns of a trophy billy appear to almost touch, while an animal with lesser horns will have more white between the bases. Oregon's best billy was a 12year-old taken in 2005, with one horn that measured 11 inches and another that measured 10 6/8 inches and, with 5 6/8 inch bases, scored at 53 inches. Qualification for the "Record Book for Oregon's Big Game Animals," requires a minimum score of 42 for a rifle hunter,41 for a muzzleloader and 40 for a bowhunter.

Opening day dawned clear with a breeze that bent the tops of the few trees that grew high in this alpine basin. From v a r i ou s v a n t age points, the hunters glassed openings for the big mature g oats they k new m ust b e there. A mile and more away, other goats were visible. Schmidt began to doubt he could get close enough. He thought about the rifle back in camp, a Browning A-Bolt 7mm Short Magnum and a box of Nosler AccuBonds. As the l ight w ent d own in the evening, the hunters watched goats across the basin. Around the campfire, they plotted the next day's hunt and the other guys kept Schmidt's spirits up. They started the morning with a slow two-mile stalk. From overlook to overlook, they moved until they spotted a big goat below a rocky crag. The billy fed uphill toward a grassy meadow. Schmidt and Dunn donned "goat suits," white painter's coveralls and made their way across a timbered ridge to stop behind a fir tree. There, just topping out on the ridge, was their goat. With a minimum of movement, Schmidt pulled out his range finder and hit the button: 58 yards. Back behind the tree, he caught his breath. When he looked again,the goat had closed the gap to 38 yards. At the next glimpse, the goat stood at 20 yards. Concealed, Schmidt drew his bow and eased around the left side of the tree. Startled, the goat bolted. Schmidt shifted around the tree to the right at full draw. The goat was in the open — 10 yards. Schmidt tickled the release; the arrow vanished behind the goat's shoulder. At the shot, the goat headed for the rocks, tumbled, rolled



a nd crashed down a n e a r vertical cliff to come to rest 300 yards below. They were almost four miles from camp with an hour before dark and a big goat to recover. Cautious, they zigged and zagged down s hale s lides, over bluffs and goat trails. In the dark they risked losing their way or reaching an impasse where they could go no farther. Finally, they reached the goat where it had lodged on a narrow ledge. Shocked, Schmidt bent to touch the horns. This was not the animal they had stalked, but an old nanny that just happened to be in the spot where he expected to see the billy; a nanny with trophy horns. At a bit more than 40 inch-

es, Schmidt's archery goat is expected to qualify for the Oregon record book. There is still a bi g b i lly o n G oat Mountain. Many hunters, when they draw a mountain goat tag, surrender beforethey even start. It takes a measure of luck to draw the tag, but it takes toughness, skill, discipline and determination to bring home the trophy. This year we present the High Desert Backcountry Outdoorsman award to Schmidt. — Gary Lewis is the host of "Adventure Journal" and author of "John Noster — Going Ballistic," "Black Bear Hunting," "Hunting Oregon" and other titles.

release these fish unharmed. The Metolius Arm closed to fishing Oct. 31. METOLIUS RIVER:Trout fishing has been good. Insect hatches should offer lots of opportunities for good dry fly-fishing. Angling for post spawning bull trout should be excellent. Large streamer flies fished in the deeper pools and slots are the best bet. NORTH TWIN: Excellent fall fishing opportunities are available. OCHOCORESERVOIR: Recent sampling shows there are plenty of trout available ranging from 8 to

16 inches long. The low water may make launching a boat difficult. PRINEVILLEYOUTHFISHING POND: Trout are still available to be caught aslong asthepond is not covered in ice. Due to safety concerns, no one is allowed to be on the ice if it's present. SHEVLINYOUTH FISHING POND: Shevlin Pond is fishing well and typically fishes well throughout winter if not iced over. WALTONLAKE: Fishing has been fair. Anglers should be very careful when venturing onto the ice and follow safety procedures.

'T efo owin '.Boo , TV SPOTLIGHT "The Following" 9 p.m. JarL 21,Fox By Frazier Moore The Associated Press

NEW YORK — I got a look at the first episode of "The Following," Fox's upcoming crime thriller, a few weeks ago. Its level of graphic violence left me disgusted and dismayed. But with plenty of time to spare before its Jan. 21 premiere, I set it aside, wondering if I was just having a

bad day. More of " Th e Following" arrived from Fox on Dec. 14, a really bad day. But I made time to watch those additional three episodes over the weekend, between h e artbroken stretches viewing coverage of the shootings in Connecticut. Yes, I was hypersensitized to the senseless real-life violence and bloodlust plaguing this country as I screened the series' dramatized savagery. B ut my r eaction to " T he Following" was no more pronounced than weeks earlier: "The Following" is a showcase for gratuitous carnage and cruelty that might best be de-

scribed as pornographic. No doubt about it, "The Following" will be hard to overlook. To be fair, there's much to like about the show. It has a fine cast, in particular Annie Parisse (r Law 8 Order"), Natalie Zea ("Justified") and

Kevin Bacon stars as Ryan Hardyin "The Following," premiering Jan. 21 on Fox. James Purefoy ("Rome"). And who doesn't love Kevin Bacon, making his entry into series television'? Plus, it was created by Kevin Williamson, known for the horror films "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and the TV series "The Vampire Diaries," but also for "Dawson's Creek." Never mind all that. (Alert:

He was convicted a decade ago for the murder of 14 young women at the university where he taught.

The premise is a r i ckety But the bulk of the brutality c ontrivance. B a co n p l a y s is delegated by Carroll (who is Ryan Hardy, a f o rmer FBI back in jail by the end of the agent pulled out of retirement premiere) to a legion of psyto track down a serial killer he cho-disciples — that is, his Folnabbed years before but who lowing.

ast,i -time It's "the pathology of today's Internet-techno-bred minds," explains Debra Parker (Parisse), an FBI cult specialist. "Enter a handsome, charismatic man who can touch them, make them feel their lives for the first time. He conditions them: The only way to truly live is to kill. Or some crap like that." Well, she said it. And that seems to be the show's lone, hackneyed message. So Hardy is roused from the drunken funk he sank into when the case was closed a decade before,to resume battle with this diabolical foe. And Carroll seems intent on targeting individuals whose deaths will be especially traumatic for Hardy. These innocents include Carroll's ex-wife, Claire (Zea), with whom Hardy fell in love while chasing Carroll before, triggering rage in the cuckolded husband. Protecting her f rom C arroll's wrath is now priority one for Hardy. But he and his team seem forever outsmarted by the bad guys, which sets the stage for lots of killings Hardy seems helplessto prevent.Any time he tells someone, "Noth-

But maybe other viewers will just love "The Following." And maybe rival networks will soon be scrambling to further up the ante with savage dramas of their own. Bring 'em on! I don't autom atically condemn TV v i o lence. Series like "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead" and stomach-churning "Dexter" regularly bust taboos. But they put violence in the service of a larger storytelling mission, not just gory sensation. That's how it should be. A series ought to earn the creative license to go extreme. It ought to justify it s excesses with even bigger meaning. "The Following" demonstrates no such responsibility. If the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School has made some viewers queasy about violence on TV, they've got a whole month to get over it. Sometimes memories are short-lived. And though there's been a call the past few days for a "national conversation" about violence, there were similar hopes voiced for a conversation about race after Trayvon Martin's shooting last February. That conversation didn't last long. To me, "The Following" looms as the wrong show at the wrong time, a red flag being waved at a sorrowful nation. But it isn't just a matter of too much too soon. I think any time would be too soon for this kind of show.

promise you that," the viewer might as well brace for another bloodbath. Poe's famous catchphrase, "Never more," is repeatedly invoked in the series. "Never more" is what I'd say about the show.

Our sex life has not been thesame since she discovered the images on the computer.

I don't know how I'm supposed to teach him to read, and it scares me. ®k„ On top of that my dad got mad at my sister and me and said R'~ that when we were younger we were just like my brother, only worse. Sometimes Dad says we're worthless, stupid and asks why we're even in this world. I have a slight form of autism, so I'm sort of slow doing certain things other kids do at my age. I feel like I'll never be as smart as anyone else, and I have no clue how I'm going to teach my disabled brother to read. Help! — Lost, Alone and Worried in Urbana, Ill. Dear Lost:It would be wonderful if you could teach your learning disabled brother how to read, but you are not equipped to do that. Your brother should be in a special education class with a teacher who has the specialized training — and, possibly, atutor. Sometimes, when parents are ex-

Caught napping


By FRANK STEWART Tribune Media Services

he rebids two hearts and you try 2NT. Partner then bids three diamonds. What do you say? ANSWER: This is a n u n easy problem. Partnershows six hearts, four diamonds and minimum values. Since you have good intermediates in the black suits, you might get away with bidding 3NT, but that action would be undisciplined. A technically correct call is pass or three hearts. North dealer Both sides vulnerable

I got to the club for a match and found Cy theCynic snoozing on a couch in the lounge. "Sometimes," Cy said when I roused him, "I'd like to totally take back all the times I didn't want to take a nap when I was younger." I like a nice nap, but the bridge table isn't the place for one. When Cy was declarer at today's four spades, West led the king and ace of hearts, and the Cynic ruffed and took the KA of trumps expectantly. Alas, West threw a diamond.



IvI Q2

OA974 AKJ73

If Cy drew trumps, he'd have none left, and West would cash hearts when he took the ace of clubs. So Cy led a club, but West ducked, and East signaled with the nine. West won the next club and gave East a ruff, and the defense also got a d i amond. Down one. Cy's play was somnolent. To guard against a 4-1 trump break, Cy should discard his diamond loser at Trick Two instead of ruffing. West can't gain by leading a third heart since dummy can ruff, so Cy has time to draw trumps and set up his clubs safely.

Youhavearight toknowwhat your government isdoing.


Current Oregon iaw requires public notices to be printed in a newspaper whose readers are affected by the notice. But federal, state, and local govern-

ment agencies erroneously believe they can savemoney by posting public notices on their web sites instead of in the local newspaper. If they did that,you'd have to know in advancewhere, when, and how to look, and what to look for, in order to be informed about governmcnt actions that could affect you directly.

Less than 10% of the U.S. population currentlyvisits a government web site daily,* but 80% of all Oregon adults read a newspaper at least once during an average week, and 54% read public notices printed there.**
