Tensions rise between hospital, union amid talk of strike By Betsy Q. Cliff The Bulletin

As negotiations proceed at a slow pace, tensions have escalated between St. Charles Bend and a union representing about 600 employees in the past couple of weeks. Employees voted in favor of becoming a part of the Service Employees International Union in January and negotiations for the group’s first contract began in May. The union

represents primarily service and maintenance workers including food service, dispatchers and employees working in equipment processing. While there had long been tension between the sides, the current furor began last week when the hospital’s administration sent out an e-mail to all employees about the possibility of a labor strike. That, several employees said, sent rumors of a strike echoing through hospital halls and beyond.

The e-mail, titled “Frequently Asked Questions on SEIU Negotiations,” laid out the aspects of a labor strike, though it said the hospital believed no strike was imminent. It detailed the process that workers would take to strike, workers’ rights in event of a strike and contingency plans the hospital had made. The e-mail said the “hospital will bring in qualified people to provide coverage in areas where (employees)

choose to participate in the strike.” The hospital said it sent the e-mail in response to rumors it was hearing about a potential strike. “We had so many questions,” said Katy Vitcovich, senior vice president of human resources. “I must have been stopped 10 times in the hall about what if there was a strike. We were responding to questions that were in the rumor mill.” See Hospital / A5

Bend police suspending probe into credit scam By Rachael Rees The Bulletin

With no leads, the Bend Police Department is suspending its investigation on the credit and debit card scam that victimized more than 700 Central Oregonians last summer. Losses totaled $250,000 as people found their credit card numbers had been stolen and fraudulent charges had been made all over the United States and overseas. But with no new definitive information from banks or credit card companies, Lt. Ben Gregory said he’s reached a dead end. Gregory said he’s been working with three banks. Out of the three, one is confident of the location of the skimming, while the other two have only provided possibilities. “It sounds like a lot of cop-out to me but that’s the way it is,” Gregory said. “I can only work with what I’m given.” A computer forensic specialist went to the location suspected of the data breach, he said. After searching the computer systems, the specialist was unable to find a breach. Gregory said one problem is several fraud victims never shopped there. Gregory said the different banks don’t agree with the information he’s obtained. Bank investigators told Gregory the skimming was most likely happening overseas. With people shopping all over the country and throughout the world, he said it’s difficult to follow victims’ statement trails and isolate the skimming. Gregory said he’s weighing the chances of solving the case against other cases. He said he’s making crimes against people a priority. “It doesn’t mean the case won’t be reopened,” he said. “It’s just suspended for now. If I get additional information that takes me to a lead I’ll reopen the case.”

MINNEAPOLIS — A few weeks ago, the Mayo Clinic made an intriguing announcement: One of its scientists had discovered a possible way to prevent ovarian and breast cancer with vaccines. And Mayo was ready to start testing them in people. Within days, word had spread around the globe. Hundreds of women were suddenly vying for a few dozen spots in the clinical trials in Minnesota. Keith Knutson, the lead scientist, wasn’t surprised: If his experiments pan out, they could signal a turning point in the battle against cancer. The experiments, set to begin early next year in Rochester, are designed to see if the vaccines can prevent recurrences of ovarian and breast cancer in women who have survived earlier bouts.

One scientist called it a 25-year adrenaline rush. Today, though, the buzz will end. After a remarkable run as the most successful atom smasher in the world, the Tevatron, a four-mile underground ring about 50 miles west of Chicago, will smash no more. At 11 a.m., Pier Oddone, director of Fermilab, the Energy Department facility that operates the Tevatron, will command the shutdown of the mammoth machine. Operators will switch off dual beams of particles that have been colliding since 1985, sprouting terrific sprays of fleeting par-

ticles that offered a glimpse of the subatomic world. “That will be it,” said Gregorio Bernardi, a Fermilab physicist. “Then we’ll have a big party.” Conceived in the 1970s as an audacious effort to probe the subatomic realm, the Tevatron discovered three of the 17 particles thought fundamental to the universe. It became a prime training ground for two generations of young physicists. And in 1995, it bagged its biggest success, finding a subatomic particle called the top quark, the last of six fundamental building blocks of matter to be discovered. See Tevatron / A5

NEW YORK — Psilocybin, or “magic mushrooms,” can make people more open in their feelings and aesthetic sensibilities, conferring on them a lasting personality change, according to a study by Johns Hopkins researchers. People who had mystic experiences while taking the mushrooms were more likely to show increases in a personality trait dubbed “openness,” which is related to creativity, artistic appreciation and curiosity, according to the study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. The change was still in place a year later, suggesting a long-term effect. “The remarkable piece is that psilocybin can facilitate experiences that change how people perceive themselves and their environment,” said Roland Griffiths, a study author and professor of psychiatry and behavioral science at Johns Hopkins University of Medicine in Baltimore. “That’s unprecedented.” Magic mushrooms, also known as “shrooms,” are hallucinogens native to tropical and subtropical regions of South America, Mexico and the United States. The fungi were favored by former Harvard psychologist Timothy Leary, who founded the Harvard Psilocybin Project, and explored by ’60s writer and anthropologist Carlos Castaneda. They are typically eaten but can also be dried and smoked or made into a tea. Openness is one of five major personality factors known to be constant throughout multiple cultures, heritable in families and largely unvarying throughout a person’s lifetime. The other four factors, extroversion, neuroticism, agreeableness and conscientiousness, were unchanged by being dosed with the hallucinogenic mushrooms, the study found. This is the first finding of a short-term intervention providing a long-term personality change, researchers said. The 51 participants, who had an average age of 46, completed two to five eight-hour drug sessions at least three weeks apart. They were asked to lie down on a couch, use an eye mask and listen to music on headphones while focusing on an inner experience. Their personalities were screened initially, one to two months after each drug session and about a year after the last trip. In the test, 30 people had a mystical experience, as established by a set of psychological scales. On tests of major personality traits, their openness scores rose, suggesting a greater interest in imagination, aesthetics, feelings, ideas and values. The 22 patients who didn’t have a mystical experience showed no change. Psilocybin mushrooms are a schedule I substance in the U.S., which means the government considers them to have a high potential for abuse and no legitimate medical purpose, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

BEIJING — China launched an experimental module Thursday, marking a significant step in the country’s plan to build a space station. The Tiangong-1 module, or “Heavenly Palace-1,” was launched into space by the carrier rocket from a remote base in China’s northwest Gansu province ahead of the country’s National Day celebration Saturday. The unmanned module, which will be operated remotely from a center in Beijing, will serve as a space laboratory and a docking target for other spacecraft. It will remain in space about two years. The module is expected to rendezvous and dock with Shenzhou 8, another unmanned craft that is due to launch in early November. If the mission is successful, the module will dock with two more spacecraft, Shenzhou 9 and 10. Manned missions may begin in 2012. Joan Johnson-Freese, a space expert at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, R.I.,

The Associated Press

A carrier rocket loaded with the Tiangong-1 module blasts off in northwest China on Thursday. China launched the experimental module to lay the groundwork for a future space station, underscoring its ambitions to become a major space power. said China’s spaceflight technology is roughly as sophisticated as that of Gemini, NASA’s human spaceflight program in the mid-1960s. “Are they going over United States capabilities? No. But what

they’ve got that we don’t is political will, which translates into money,” she said. The launch Thursday was part of the second stage in China’s three-step strategy for the development of its space program. The first step was the development of the Shenzhou capsule program, which in 2003 made China the third country in the world to successfully launch a human being into space. The second step currently under way involves spacewalking as well as rendezvous and docking. Chinese astronaut Zhai Zhigang completed the country’s first spacewalk in 2008. A space station may be launched between 2020 and 2022. Wu Ping, a spokeswoman from China’s manned space program, said the technological advances facilitated by Tiangong-1 may also be “used for moon landings and deep space exploration,” according to China Daily. She emphasized that research for a potential moon landing is still in a nascent stage. Morris Jones, a space analyst based in Sydney, Australia, said a moon landing may be possible before the year 2025.

LOS ANGELES — A spacecraft sent to the least explored rocky planet in our Solar System is providing new and surprising information that may rewrite what scientists believe about the growth of planets. Mercury has a lopsided magnetic field, far too much sulfur and sports strange hollows across its surface that hint at present-day geologic activity, according to data gleaned by NASA’s Messenger spacecraft. The results, published in a package of seven papers in today’s edition of the journal Science, may force scientists to throw out many ideas about how Mercury first formed. Launched in 2004, the spacecraft flew by the planet three times before entering orbit in March. — Los Angeles Times

Killer cantaloupe, scary sprouts — what to do? By Marilynn Marchione

The Food and Drug Administration has recalled 300,000 cases of cantaloupe after connecting them with a listeria outbreak.

The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Avoid foreign produce. Wash and peel your fruit. Keep it refrigerated. None of these common tips would have guaranteed your safety from the deadliest food outbreak in a decade, the one involving cantaloupes from Colorado. Whether it’s sprouts or spinach, turkey or hamburger; whether the government doubled, tripled or quadrupled inspections, the truth is that no food will ever be completely free of risk. And a few foods have become so risky that certain people such as children, pregnant women and the elderly may do best to avoid them altogether until growers and the government figure out how to make them safer, some food experts say. An unappetizing fact: Although the current cantaloupe outbreak has been tied to just one farm in Colorado, it’s at least the 19th outbreak involving that melon since 1984. It’s also the first one caused by listeria, a germ that actually likes to be in the refrigerator and thrives in this fruit,

which cannot be cooked unless you want to eat melon mush. Listeria also prompted a California farm to recall bags of chopped romaine lettuce on Thursday because of possible contamination, though no illnesses have been reported. The greens from Salinas-based True Leaf Farms went to an Oregon distributor and possibly at least two other states — Washington and Idaho. So what should you do if you see cantaloupe on a salad bar or at the grocery store? Can you be sure all of the tainted stuff has been pulled from the market, since the last bad melons were shipped on Sept. 10? What if no one knows where the cantaloupe was grown?

“If the store can’t tell them or the restaurant can’t tell them, I would not buy it at all,” said Chris Waldrop, director of the Food Policy Institute at the Consumer Federation of America. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has confirmed 13 deaths and 72 illnesses in the outbreak so far, has not told people to stop buying cantaloupe. However, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration cannot even say where all of the tainted melon went, because it was sold and resold to many distributors across the nation. “When in doubt, throw it out,” is the CDC’s advice to consumers who have any cantaloupe whose origins they can’t determine.

Each outbreak brings fresh lessons on how to make produce safer. And while some of these things aren’t guarantees, they can cut the odds you’ll lose at the food safety lottery. Some new tips food experts offered Thursday: • Shop more often and consume fresh fruits and vegetables within a few days. This gives germs less chance to multiply and gives you more nutrients from your food, too. • Don’t just wash a melon. Scrub it under running water to rinse off any dislodged germs, and let it dry. If you cut it while it’s still wet, “you may be sliding the pathogens more easily from the outside to the inside” on the knife, DeWaal said. • Keep the fridge cold, 40 degrees or lower. Higher than that can let germs grow. • Don’t get a false sense of security if you buy organic produce. That just means less pesticide — not necessarily fewer germs. • Consider dropping risky foods from your diet. Bean sprouts are not safe for children, pregnant women or people with weak immune systems and certain diseases, but that doesn’t mean they’re OK for everyone else, said Michael Doyle, a Georgia microbiologist.

Biodegradable toilet could aid developing world New York Times News Service It looks like a plastic bag, but in fact the PeePoo is a single-use biodegradable toilet for the developing world. After it is used, the bag is knotted and then buried or sold back to the manufacturer. A lining of urea crystals in the bag helps transform the waste into fertilizer. By one U.N. estimate, about 40 percent of the world’s population — 2.6 billion people — does not have access to a toilet. Open defecation leads to contaminated water and diarrhea. About 1.5 million children die of diarrhea every year. The PeePoo’s creator is Anders Wilhelmson, a Swedish architect and professor. While taking his students on trips in Asia and Africa, he decided that urban slum populations needed toilets even more than they needed housing.

House passes stopgap bill

Health law adversaries share some common ground

By Robert Pear New York Times News Service

By Adam Liptak New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The 2010 health care overhaul law has provoked an unprecedented clash between the federal government and 26 states, dividing them on fundamental questions about the very structure of the federal system. But the two sides share a surprising amount of common ground, too, starting with their agreement in briefs, filed Wednesday, that the Supreme Court should resolve the clash in its current term. Until just days ago, it was hardly clear that the Obama administration would agree with the states on the need for prompt review, as there were good political reasons for moving slowly. The court’s decision is now most likely to come just months before the 2012 presidential election. Their briefs also reflect agreement on matters of substance. The two sides, along with the judges in the majority in the appeals court decision most likely to be reviewed by the justices, all said the dispute is about means rather than ends. There are other ways, they said, for Congress to achieve near-universal health coverage, some of them more expansive than what was enacted. “Both sides agree that Congress has the constitutional power to enact a national health care system that raised taxes to support a single government agency that pays all medical bills, just like Medicare,” said Walter Dellinger, who served as acting solicitor general in the administration of President Bill Clinton and supports the law.

Irony in harmony Randy Barnett, a lawyer for some of the plaintiffs who on Wednesday sought Supreme Court review, made essentially the same point. “What I’ve said from Day One,” he said, “is that if Medicare is constitutional then Medicare-foreveryone is constitutional.” Dellinger said there was irony in this harmony. “The constitutional attack is focused on a mandate that was necessary if the new system was to utilize the existing private market, which had traditionally been a conservative and Republican proposal for how to deal with health care,” he said. To be sure, the two sides dispute whether Congress has the power under the Constitution’s commerce clause to require people to buy insurance through what the federal government calls a minimum coverage provision and the plaintiffs call an individual mandate. But they agree that Congress could have achieved much the same thing through a slightly different mechanism, as Judge Stanley Marcus wrote in his dissent from the 2-to-1 decision issued in August by a panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in Atlanta. “The plaintiffs and, indeed, the majority have conceded, as they must, that Congress has the commerce power to impose precisely the same mandate compelling the same class of uninsured individuals to obtain the same kind of insurance, or otherwise pay a penalty, as a necessary condition to receiving health care services, at the time the uninsured seek these services,” Marcus wrote. Judge Jeffrey Sutton, one judge on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the majority in a 2-to-1 decision in June upholding the law, said the difference between the concededly proper approach and the disputed one was not enough to strike down a major piece of legislation.

Libyan revolutionary fighters pray outside Sirte, Libya, on Thursday. Rebel forces are struggling to make headway against loyalist fighters in the hometown of ousted leader Moammar Gadhafi.

On visit to Libya, U.S. senators offer praise, caution to leaders By Kareem Fahim and Rick Gladstone New York Times News Service

TRIPOLI, Libya — Four Republican senators visited Tripoli on Thursday, the most prominent official U.S. delegation to travel to the Libyan capital since the fall of Moammar Gadhafi’s government more than a month ago, and they said the former insurgents who toppled him were inspiring activists in Syria, Iran and even China and Russia. But they cautioned, as well, that the proliferation of postGadhafi militias here represented a potential threat. The delegation, led by Sen. John McCain of Arizona, also said U.S. investors were watching Libya with keen interest and wanted to do business here as soon as the National Transitional Council, as the interim government is known, had pacified the country and routed the vestiges of resistance by Gadhafi and his fugitive loyalists. The senators said they had raised the delicate subject of prosecuting the unpunished Libyan perpetrators of the Lockerbie bombing with the post-Gadhafi government and were told it was ready to cooperate. The 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killed 270 people, most of them Americans, during a period of Gadhafi’s rule when Libya was considered a pariah state.

The senators touched down in a country celebrating the toppling of Gadhafi but also struggling to find its way. The former rebels have been unable to defeat Gadhafi loyalists in the cities of Sirte and Bani Walid and have moved slowly to exert control over civilian militias that have claimed parts of Tripoli. The battlefield deadlocks have aggravated a leadership crisis that broke out into the open Thursday, when Libya’s embattled prime minister, Mahmoud Jibril, appearing at a rare news conference, seemed to dare the interim government to fire him. Speaking to reporters in Tripoli, Jibril, who has been under attack for weeks by rivals, including some who complained he spent too much time out of Libya, denounced his critics. “If there were groups or people that do not see Mahmoud Jibril as fit or they don’t want him, that’s totally up to them,” he said. “The only power on this ground is the power of the transitional council. “I’m not going to keep it a secret from you that they will do me a favor if their opinion was heard and I was relieved of this duty.” Even as he declared he would not serve in the government once the entire country was liberated, Jibril tried to strengthen his government’s legitimacy, announcing millions of dollars in payments to Libyans, including

the families of fighters killed in the conflict and people still on the front lines. There were unconfirmed reports that anti-Gadhafi fighters near Sirte had captured Moussa Ibrahim, Gadhafi’s spokesman. Jibril said he hoped the news was true. The congressional delegation, including Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Mark Steven Kirk of Illinois and Marco Rubio of Florida, toured Martyrs’ Square, known as the Green Square during Gadhafi’s four decades in power. McCain and Graham visited Tripoli as part of another congressional delegation in August 2009, when their attitude toward Gadhafi was much different. According to a confidential diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks, they met with Gadhafi and one of his sons, Muatassim, who is still on the run, and discussed Libya’s counterterrorism efforts and its cooperation in dismantling its nuclear program. McCain “described the bilateral military relationship as strong,” the cable said. On this visit, they met with former rebel officials, military commanders and fighters, and toured a prison. At an afternoon news conference, the senators mostly offered praise for the revolutionaries, saying they had “inspired the world.”

Pro-Assad mob traps U.S. ambassador By Joby Warrick The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — A tomatohurling mob assaulted the U.S. ambassador to Syria and several aides Thursday as they arrived for a meeting with an opposition leader, an incident the State Department later said was deliberately staged by Syrian officials. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sharply condemned the attack on Ambassador Robert Ford, who U.S. officials say was trapped for more than an hour when the mob besieged the Damascus office building where the meeting occurred. No Americans were hurt, but several embassy

cars were badly damaged. “This attempt to intimidate our diplomats through violence is wholly unjustified,” Clinton told reporters at a Washington news conference. A formal complaint was lodged with the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who Clinton said must “take every possible step to protect our diplomats.” The White House also denounced the attack, which spokesman Jay Carney termed “an ongoing campaign to intimidate and threaten diplomats attempting to bear witness to the brutality of the Assad regime.” The outspoken Ford, whose crit-

icism of government repression has repeatedly rankled Syria’s leaders, first came under attack as he arrived in a Damascus office building for a private meeting with a opposition figure, according to a State Department account. Accounts identified the man as Hassan Abdul-Azim, once the head of Syria’s outlawed Arab Socialist Democratic Union Party. A crowd, described by witnesses as numbering about 100 people, chanted slogans and hurled food at the ambassador as he arrived for the meeting. Afterward, some in the mob battered embassy vehicles while others tried to force their way into the building.

WASHINGTON — The House on Thursday gave quick approval to a stopgap spending bill that will finance the government for the first four days of October, until lawmakers can return and vote on a more ambitious seven-week spending bill. The stopgap bill, passed Monday by the Senate, goes now to President Obama, who is expected to sign it. The House action came in a brief session attended by just a few lawmakers. Both houses of Congress are in recess, holding only pro forma sessions like the one on Thursday. A partisan fight over the stopgap spending bill had raised the possibility that the government might have to shut down many of its operations starting on Saturday, the first day of the new fiscal year. The fight, like so many on Capitol Hill this year, involved a dispute over money, as Republicans and Democrats disagreed over how to pay for assistance to victims of natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and wildfires.

The dispute was not resolved but simply deferred as the Federal Emergency Management Agency discovered that it had enough money to continue providing disaster aid through the end of the current fiscal year on Friday. Administration officials had previously said that the agency’s disaster relief fund might be depleted early this week. The measure approved Thursday will be the 157th stopgap spending bill enacted since 1977, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service. Such bills have become a regular feature of government as Congress has had difficulty completing the regular annual appropriations bills in a timely way. From 1978 to 2011, Congress has enacted an average of more than four stopgap spending bills per fiscal year, according to the research service. In only three years were all the regular appropriations bills adopted on time. Congress resorted to temporary measures, also known as continuing resolutions, in the other years. The latest dispute revolved around the question of how much, if any, of the cost of disaster assistance should be offset by cuts elsewhere in the federal budget.

In 15 states, white population is decreasing, Census finds By Carol Morello The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — NonHispanic whites are a dwindling share of the U.S. population, with their numbers dropping in the Northeast and Midwest and growing only modestly in the South and West, the Census Bureau said Thursday. Whites declined in 15 states, almost all in the industrial and farming states from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, and from Kansas to Ohio. They also declined in California and three Southern states. A Census Bureau analysis of the 2010 count showed that the number of non-Hispanic whites rose over the decade from 194.5 million to 197 million, but the 1.2 percent growth rate fell far short of the national increase of 9.7 percent. Non-Hispanic whites are now 64 percent of the population, down from 69 percent a decade ago. The census also reported that the black population grew by 12 percent. African Americans now make up almost 13 percent of the population, a small increase over the decade. More than half, 57 percent, live in the South, up from 55 percent a decade ago. And six out of 10 blacks live in 10 states. The census analysis of the nation’s white and black population underscores the trans-

formative nature of growth in the 21st century. The number of Hispanics and Asians is soaring, the number of blacks is growing slowly and whites are almost at a standstill. Hispanics are an ethnic group of people who can be of any race. Most Hispanics identified themselves as white. The number of whites who indicated for the census that they are Hispanic increased by 56 percent. Whites who are not Hispanic are getting older on average, and have low birthrates that, when coupled with the high birthrates of Hispanics and Asians, make whites a smaller share of the population with every census count.

After campaign, China cancels dog meat festival By Edward Wong New York Times News Service

BEIJING — In the whirlwind of growth that is modern China, the loss of ancient traditions often provokes dismay and outrage. But people across the country cheered recently when officials in eastern China said they were doing away with a 600-year-old local custom: the slaughter of thousands of dogs to be eaten at an autumn festival. The Jinhua Hutou Dog Meat Festival, as it is called, was canceled last week after local officials were shamed by an online campaign begun by animal rights advocates. Gruesome photographs taken at past festivals that show canine carcasses, some bloody and others cooked, circulated

on Chinese microblogs, creating popular pressure against the festival, which was set for October. Pet ownership has grown rapidly among the Chinese, as has a greater consciousness of animal rights. In the Mao era, the Communist Party condemned pets as a byproduct of bourgeois decadence. “I once had a pet dog, and I’m not a huge fan of dog meat,” said a 36-year-old man in Guangdong province who is credited by a Chinese journalist with helping start the campaign against the festival on Sina Weibo, a popular microblog platform. The blogger declined to give his name and agreed to chat only over the Internet. “The reason why I posted that

message online is very simple — that is, I don’t want to see dog lovers’ feelings get hurt,” he said. The dog meat festival, held in the Wucheng District of Jinhua in Zhejiang province, is part of an annual three-day temple fair. The dog market has been part of the fair for centuries, according to the district government’s website. Local folklore says the tradition of feasting on dogs originated when Hu Dahai, a rebel battling Yuan Dynasty rulers in the 14th century, ordered all the dogs in Jinhua to be slaughtered because their barking had warned rebels in the city of his army’s approach. His soldiers were treated to dog meat, the story goes, and eating dog has been a custom at local temple fairs ever since.

Obama sees path to re-election beyond Rust Belt By Jackie Calmes and Mark Landler New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — With his support among blue-collar white voters far weaker than among white-collar independents, President Barack Obama is charting an alternative course to re-election should he be unable to win Ohio and other industrial states traditionally essential to Democratic presidential victories. Without conceding ground anywhere, Obama is fighting hard for Southern and Rocky Mountain states he won in 2008, and some he did not, in calculating how to assemble the necessary 270 electoral votes. He is seeking to prove that those victories on formerly Republican turf were not flukes but the start of a trend that will make Democrats competitive there for years. “There are a lot of ways for us to get to 270, and it’s not just the traditional map,” said David Axelrod, Obama’s chief strategist. “That’s why we’re laying the groundwork across the country to compete on the widest possible playing field next year.” While Obama’s approval ratings have slid across the board as unemployment remains high, what buoys Democrats are the changing demographics of formerly Republican states like Colorado, where Democrats won a close Senate race in 2010, as well as Virginia and North Carolina. With growing cities and suburbs, they are populated by increasing numbers of educated and higher-income independents, young voters, Hispanics and blacks, many of them alienated by Republicans’ tea party agenda. “The biggest challenge” for Republicans, said Tad Devine, a senior strategist for Al Gore’s

and John Kerry’s presidential campaigns, “is that they have to deal with what I would call the Obama electorate. And the Obama electorate is not the electorate that we have seen in America since I started working on presidential campaigns in 1980.” Even so, Devine and other Democrats do not expect an easy race. “It’s not going to be a triumphal march to almost 54 percent of the vote and 365 electoral votes” like in 2008, he said. “It’s going to be a hard slog, like the ones we did in 2000 and 2004 and came up short. The only difference is, Obama has got places to go that we couldn’t go. We couldn’t even target North Carolina when Kerry’s running mate” — former Sen. John Edwards — “was from North Carolina.” For Republicans, the reality of those changing demographics tempers their heightened hopes for beating Obama. Terry Nelson, a campaign adviser to George W. Bush, John McCain and, this year, former candidate Tim Pawlenty, said he was “pretty optimistic” for 2012, partly because Obama’s support among lower-income, less-educated white voters, never high, has dropped enough that Republicans see good prospects for winning industrial-belt states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. But, Nelson acknowledged: “The country is changing. In every election cycle, every year, every day, this country becomes more ethnically diverse. And that has an impact on the kind of coalition that you need to put together to win.” He added, “The truth is, Obama needs fewer white voters in 2012 than he did in 2008.”

President Barack Obama delivers his back-to school speech at Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in Washington Thursday. His approval ratings have slumped along with the economy, but his campaign is targeting traditionally Republican states like Colorado and North Carolina. Obama’s recent travel reflects his calculus. On Tuesday, he was in Colorado, at a high school in a heavily Hispanic Denver neighborhood, to promote his jobs plan. This month he was in Ohio, but also in Virginia and North Carolina; he may return soon on a bus tour of neighboring states, aides say. Vice President Joe Biden was in northern Virginia on Thursday to stump for the jobs bill. Virginia, North Carolina and Colorado together have more than double the number of Ohio’s electoral votes — 37 versus 18. And Obama advisers say that the same demographic factors at play in those states are also present in states Obama lost

in 2008 — like Arizona (whose senator, McCain, was his rival) and Georgia. Except for Indiana, a long shot, Obama advisers say the president will be favored or competitive everywhere he won before, including Ohio. But polls underscore how tough a task he will have with independents in the industrial belt, where income and education levels are below the national average, compared with states like Colorado and Virginia with higher-income, better-educated independents. The latest nationwide New York Times/CBS News poll this month showed that 51 percent of independents with household income below $50,000 disapproved

of Obama’s performance, as did 57 percent of those with income between $50,000 and $100,000. But independents with household income above $100,000 approved of his job performance by 50 percent to 43 percent. A challenge for Obama in Colorado and elsewhere is mobilizing Hispanic voters, many of whom complain that he has not tried hard enough to overcome Republican opposition to immigration legislation. And appealing to independents will require some deft politics, since Obama’s recent switch to a more confrontational approach to congressional Republicans could cost independent support even as he energizes Democratic voters. Virginia and North Carolina, with their respected universities, technology centers and diverse suburbs, are similar enough in their changing demographics that Devine suggests they can be viewed as a single state for purposes of presidential politics. Their combined 28 electoral votes are nearly equal to the 29 votes of Florida, which was traditionally joined with Ohio as must-haves for Democrats. The change is evident outside of Washington, where Virginia’s northern suburbs now dominate in state elections, and south around Richmond. “It’s the difference between the Old Dominion and the New Dominion,” said Mike Henry, campaign manager for Tim Kaine, the former governor and former Democratic Party chairman who is running for the Senate. Pointing to “an influx of Latinos, African-American families, Asians,” Henry said, “The demographic characteristics of the state are totally different than what they were 10 years ago.”

Hundreds of species up for new protections By Matthew Brown

The American eel — shown here in the Osage River in Missouri — is one of hundreds of plants and animals targeted by the Obama administration for federal protection.

The Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. — The Obama administration is taking steps to extend new federal protections to a list of imperiled animals and plants that reads like a manifest for Noah’s Ark — from the melodic golden-winged warbler and slow-moving gopher tortoise, to the slimy American eel and tiny Texas kangaroo rat. Compelled by a pair of recent legal settlements, the effort in part targets species that have been mired in bureaucratic limbo even as they inch toward potential extinction. With a deadline today to act on more than 700 pending cases, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service already has issued decisions advancing more than 500 species toward potential new protections under the Endangered Species Act. Observers said the agency’s actions mark a breakthrough for a program long criticized by conservatives and liberals alike as cumbersome and slow. But most of the decisions made under the new settlements are preliminary, and key Republicans vowed Thursday to press forward with their plans to put the brakes on a law they blame for jeopardizing economic growth. Still, said Patrick Parenteau, an environmental law professor at the Vermont Law School, “Here at a single glance, you see the sweep of the Endangered Species Act. They are moving through this large backlog at a fairly crisp clip now. This is the largest number of listing actions we’ve seen in a very long time, in decades.” Decisions on about 60 more species covered under the settlements are expected today, the Fish and Wildlife Service said. The flurry of action could help revive President Barack Obama’s standing among wildlife advocates upset over the administration’s support for taking gray wolves off the endangered list in the Northern Rockies and Upper Great Lakes, among other issues. It also could set the stage for a new round of disputes pitting conservation against development. In the Southeast, for example, water supplies already stretched thin could be further limited by constraints resulting from a host of new fish, salamanders, turtles and other aquatic creatures eligible for protections. In response to the administration’s decisions under the settlements, Republicans including U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, repeated their call to overhaul the 37-year-old endangered act. The Washington state lawmaker is planning hearings

Earlier this year, citing restrictions against development and other activities, GOP lawmakers unsuccessfully sought to strip the federal budget of money to list new species as threatened or endangered. The administration is seeking $25 million for the listing program in 2012, an 11 percent increase. No projections were available for how much it would cost if hundreds more species were listed as threatened or endangered. For those already listed, a 2006 study from the Government Accountability Office found projected recovery costs ranged widely — from $125 million for the whooping crane, to $58,000

for the decurrent false aster, a type of flower. The GAO pegged the average cost for the species it examined at $15.9 million, with recoveries often lasting decades. Determining the broader costs to the economy is more difficult. Lost jobs from restrictions placed on logging or agriculture might be offset by benefits to outdoor recreational industries like boating or fishing, said Jason Shogren, a natural resources professor in the economics department at the University of Wyoming. Under the current settlements, only 13 new animals and plants have reached the final step and been added to the almost 1,400 species on the government’s threatened and endangered list. Also, not every species made the cut to take the next step. Roughly 40 rejections have been meted out, including for plains bison, the giant Palouse earthworm of Idaho and Utah’s Gila monster. Those rejections are subject to court challenges.

52% say U.S. isn’t divided economically, poll finds By Michael Muskal Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — President Obama and Republicans are trading jabs over the phrase “class war” in dealing with the nation’s struggling economy, but a slight majority of Americans reject the idea of a country divided between haves and have-nots, according to a poll released on Thursday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post. According to the survey, 52 percent said it was wrong to think of the United States divided between those who economically have and those who are lacking. Still, 45 percent said that such a division, part of the basis for the historic definition of class and class war, was appropriate. Soon after Obama took office, the percentage of Americans who saw society as divided between haves and have-nots declined. In April 2009, 35 percent said the nation was divided economically, down from 44 percent in October 2008, just before the election that hinged in part on the candidates’ response to a plummeting economy. The number saying the nation is economically divided increased to 42 percent a year later and has remained relatively the same since, according to the poll.



Defense challenges key witness’ testimony By Harriet Ryan and Victoria Kim Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — A lawyer for Michael Jackson’s physician attacked the testimony of an important prosecution witness Thursday, suggesting that his damning account of the doctor’s actions was physically impossible and influenced by offers of money from tabloids. The witness, security guard Alberto Alvarez, is key to the

prosecution’s theory that Dr. Conrad Murray delayed calling for an ambulance for Jackson in order to hide evidence that he had given the singer the dangerous surgical anesthetic propofol and other drugs. Cross-examining Alvarez on the third day of Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, a defense lawyer said phone records cast doubt on the witness’s chronology. Those records established a window of 30 to 90

seconds for what the attorney identified as 14 separate events in Jackson’s bedroom, such as Alvarez comforting of the singer’s children to his placing of pill bottles into bags. “Do you think you could have performed all these events that are listed here in half a minute,” lawyer Ed Chernoff asked. “I’m very efficient, sir,” Alvarez said. A prosecutor asked Alvarez whether many of the events


of the agency’s Office of Science. “The LHC is very rapidly outpacing what we could do with the Tevatron,” Brinkman said in an e-mail. Tona Kunz, a Fermilab spokeswoman, said that 42 employees took “voluntary separations” prompted by the closure but that the rest of the lab’s 1,800 full-time workers will remain employed.

Continued from A1 Technology developed for the Tevatron, namely superconducting, super-cooled magnets, also primed the explosion in hospital MRI machines. Fermilab’s technicians and engineers invented what they needed on the fly, said Christopher Quigg, a theoretical physicist who has worked at Fermilab since 1974. “There were all these wizards walking around, which was exciting for someone who didn’t get to get his hands on anything,” he said.

Shift in power

Predecessor to the Large Hadron Collider The Tevatron’s magnet technology also forms the backbone of its European successor, the Large Hadron Collider. “There’s no way the LHC exists without the Tevatron,” Quigg said. In 2009, the 17-mile LHC, which straddles the FrenchSwiss border, took from the Tevatron the title of world’s most powerful atom smasher. The LHC is closing in on a theoretical particle, called the Higgs boson, which is supposed to imbue all the other particles in the universe with mass. As the final piece of the Standard Model of physics, the Higgs is the biggest prize in physics today; a Nobel Prize surely awaits its discoverers. The Tevatron, powerful as it was, was too weak to see it. “The machine has discovered what it could discover within its reach,” Bernardi said, adding that the Tevatron has, in fact, helped narrow the search for the Higgs. But some physicists say the Tevatron could have made more discoveries. “They were in the realm where they might have seen the Higgs if they had kept running for a few years,” said Lisa Randall, a

ning through 2014. But the Energy Department deemed the $25 million annual outlay too high and instead will spend those funds on two new experiments at Fermilab, said William Brinkman, director

Cancer Continued from A1 As the search for a cure drags on, there’s a surge of interest in prevention, said Fran Visco, president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition in Washington. “Without question, women are desperately looking for something new,” she said. “Keith is one of the people who is sort of leading the way.” Knutson is among an elite group of scientists trying to attack cancer the way that their predecessors fought diseases like smallpox and measles. “Ultimately,” he said, “we want to develop a vaccine that can actually prevent breast and ovarian cancer.”

‘Sitting ducks’ Knutson, who has spent a dozen years on the project, says many women are understandably eager to take a chance on cancer vaccines, even experimental ones. Cancer survivors, he says, “just feel like sitting ducks.” Long after treatment, they live in fear that the disease will return. Often, it does. “Those patients are still at very high risk, because it’s hard to get all the cancer out,” he said. So it’s only natural for them to ask: ‘What can I do to protect myself?’ ” Knutson, 47, began his quest for a vaccine long before joining the Mayo Clinic in 2005. One reason was personal: “I have family members with breast cancer,” he said. “I could see that we weren’t getting enough ideas into the clinic.” At the same time, as an immunologist, he saw untapped potential in the body’s natural defenses. One of the biggest problems is that cancer has a way of evading the immune system. The challenge, Knutson said, is to teach the immune system how to find it. In his lab, he and his colleagues focused on two distinc-

Chernoff listed had happened simultaneously. “This was all one fast paced series of events?” he asked. “Yes, sir,” Alvarez responded. The heart of Alvarez’s testimony, which he gave first at a January hearing and reiterated on the witness stand Thursday, is his claim that before Murray asked him to dial 911, he ordered him to gather drug bottles, vials and an IV bag of a “milky, white substance” consistent with propofol.

Dr. Keith Knutson heads research on a cancer vaccine. For cancer survivors, “it’s hard to get all the cancer out,” he said. “So it’s only natural for them to ask: ‘What can I do to protect myself?’ ” tive substances that are often found on the surface of cancer cells. One is a protein, called Her2/neu, found on some of the most aggressive types of breast cancer. The other, folate receptor alpha protein, is found on nearly all ovarian and breast cancers. He and his team designed vaccines to attack both of them. In experiments on mice that are bred to develop cancer, both vaccines were able to prevent tumors from growing. They worked best, Knutson found, when started at the earliest stages. “The animal models have clearly shown that the less disease you have, the more effective vaccines are,” he said. To see if they work the same way in people, Knutson decided to try the vaccines on patients who have been successfully treated for breast or ovarian cancer, and have little or no sign of disease. Now, for the first time, Mayo has the green light from the Food and Drug Administration to try it on people.

Still in early stages The first goal is to test safety, so fewer than 50 women will be in the first round of trials. “We have to make sure we’re

not going to do any damage to patients,” Knutson said. They’ll get the vaccine once a month for the first six months. Then the researchers will track them, both for side effects and any signs the vaccine is working. “They’re going to want us to watch them for a couple of years,” said Knutson. Only then, if all goes well, can larger studies begin to prove if the vaccines work. The field is still in its infancy, though there has been some success with other types of cancer vaccines, scientists say. The FDA has approved two vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix, to prevent a virus that causes cervical cancer; and a third vaccine, Provenge, to

The closure offers a bitter endnote for American scientists, who have long warned of a shift in physics power. European scientists once traveled to Fermilab in bunches. Now, droves of American physicists fly to Geneva, home of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, which operates the LHC. Of the 6,361 physicists registered to work on the LHC, the largest single contingent, 1,684, comes from the United States, said CERN spokesman Jim Gillies. The Energy Department and the National Science Foundation contributed $531 million of the estimated $10 billion in LHC construction costs. And in 2008, when the LHC malfunctioned during an early run, Fermilab workers helped fix it. But some American physics veterans would prefer to be operating on U.S. soil. Congress quashed that opportunity in 1993 when it canceled Tevatron’s successor, the Superconducting Super Collider, after spending $2 billion and digging 14 miles of what was supposed to be a 54-mile underground ring in North Texas. Over the coming days, the Tevatron’s 1,000 liquid-helium cooled magnets will slowly warm. Eventually, Oddone said, a section of the Tevatron’s tunnel and one of its massive collision detectors will be converted from atom-smashing into a more quotidian task: hosting visitors as a museum.

treat advanced prostate cancer. But Knutson’s goal is far more ambitious. Dr. Sylvia Adams, a breast cancer specialist and vaccine researcher at New York University Cancer Institute, cautioned that Knutson’s work is “just a start,” but added: “I’m very excited about this work.” She said studies at Mayo, the Cleveland Clinic and other sites have raised the possibility that vaccines could help people at high risk for cancer — such as women with the breast-cancer gene — and possibly offer longterm protection. For women with ovarian cancer, a vaccine would be a dream come true, said Kathleen Gavin, executive director of the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance, which helped fund Knutson’s research. Ovarian cancer “is a highly recurring disease,” she said. And “usually, once you recur, there’s no cure.” Daphne Sackett of Truman, Minn., agreed. “That would be awesome if they could give us more peace of mind,” said Sackett, 49, who was treated for ovarian cancer in 2008. “Not only (for) myself and my family, but a lot of others.” It may not happen anytime soon, but Knutson deserves credit for shooting high, says Christine Norton, president of the Minnesota Breast Cancer Coalition. “Keith is part of changing the whole conversation,” she said. “We have to change it from awareness and pink ribbons to, let’s focus on ending this.”

3,653 post offices for closure or consolidation.

Continued from A1 Fire sales of unused government property will not come close to closing the deficit, of course, and there are plenty of bureaucratic obstacles even if Congress approves. But the proposals could make a modest difference. With the government owning more than a million properties, the sales possibilities are plentiful, supporters say. Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate and a member of the special congressional deficit-reduction panel, has said that property sales is one area where the committee can probably agree.

Lots of red tape

Could raise $22B The White House figures it could raise up to $22 billion over the next decade, though there are plenty who doubt the government could raise anywhere near that amount. More than 80 percent of that figure might come from the auction of public airwaves now dedicated to broadcast television which the Obama administration believes can be better used for wireless broadband. The idea behind that plan, which is supported by both parties and the Federal Communications Commission, is to reclaim and sell a public asset that previously was given away. But it also could generate some serious opposition from the nation’s broadcasters, which have a powerful lobby. The other $4 billion would come from selling buildings and property. The Pentagon and the Postal Service have both sold buildings and generated a lot of cash. Sales of 350 closed military installations have produced $1.5 billion over the last 20 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The Postal Service raised $180 million from the sale or lease of properties last year alone, and postal authorities have identified an additional

Hospital Continued from A1 But those associated with the union say the hospital sent the e-mail to stoke the rumor mill. The e-mail “really shook our membership up” said Joanne Kennedy, a pharmacy technician at the hospital who is on the SEIU’s bargaining team. “We’re spending all week doing damage control.” Kennedy said the union does not and has never had any intention to strike. “We told them about that.”

2 sides ‘far apart’ Both sides have said negotiations are proceeding slowly. They have agreed on 12 of 31 contract items, said Vitcovich, though she said the hardest issues were still to come. On wages and benefits, she said, the two groups are still “far apart,” though they had only just begun talks about those topics. Kennedy said from the union’s perspective the hospital seemed unwilling to compromise on economic matters. “They are just planting their feet and crossing their arms and shaking their heads.”


Like a lot of things in Washington, selling federal property is tangled in red tape. To sell airwaves, for instance, Congress would need to pass a law. Selling off property requires a multistep process that includes other agencies looking it over to see if they could use it, and another check to see if it might be a good candidate for a homeless shelter or some other public purpose. Only if it fails various tests is property finally offered to the public. Denham of California has a bill that, along with a similar Senate bill sponsored by Scott Brown, R-Mass., would streamline the property sale process by creating a commission like those used by the military to close surplus bases. Both bills are similar to an idea that Obama sent to Congress in his 2012 budget. The Congressional Budget Office, the Government Accountability Office and the Congressional Research Service all are skeptical on the administration’s sales estimates, largely because of the spools of red tape. Theresa Gullo, deputy assistant director for budget analysis at the CBO, told a House committee in July that a review of the president’s plan found that it “was not likely to significantly increase receipts from sales of federal property.” In selling broadcast spectrum, the FCC wants small urban television stations to give up space on the spectrum in exchange for part of the proceeds from an auction of the airwaves to wireless telephone companies. The commission also would move other stations around on the dial to use airwaves more efficiently. But broadcasters, who spread a fair amount of political largess on Capitol Hill, are less enthusiastic — one reason the plan hasn’t happened so far. “It’s a very compelling initiative that has very broad national support,” Julius Genachowski, chairman of the FCC, said. “It’s market oriented, it contributes to deficit reduction, and it gets big things done that really everyone supports.”

The union negotiations are a large contributor to what CEO Jim Diegel called a “tense” mood at the hospital. He also said the poor financial performance of the hospital, a history of strained physician relations and general complexity of a large hospital contributed to that mood. “You mix all of that in, in a region that is already feeling significantly economically strained … it creates general anxiety,” Diegel said. “And a tense environment.” Betsy Q.

Banks roll out new debit fees By Tara Siegel Bernard and Ben Protess New York Times News Service

Bank of America said Thursday that it planned to start charging customers a $5 monthly fee when they used their debit cards. It was just one of several new charges expected to hit consumers as regulations crimp profits. Wells Fargo and Chase are testing $3 monthly debit card fees. Regions Financial, based in Birmingham, Ala., plans to start

charging a $4 fee next month, while SunTrust, another regional powerhouse, is charging a $5 fee. The round of charges stems from a rule, which takes effect Saturday, that limits the fees that banks can levy on merchants every time a consumer uses a debit card to make a purchase. The rule, known as the Durbin amendment, after its sponsor Sen. Richard Durbin, is part of the Dodd-Frank finan-

cial overhaul law. Until now, the fees have been 44 cents a transaction, on average. The Federal Reserve in June agreed to cut the fees to about 21 cents. Although the fee amounts to pennies per swipe, it adds up across millions of transactions. The new limit is expected to cost the banks about $6.6 billion in revenue a year, beginning in 2012, according to Javelin Strategy and Research. See Debit fees / B5

Baby wipe creator says stamp proves product about more than profit By Rachael Rees The Bulletin


hen consumers pick up Elements Naturals baby wipes, company co-founder and Bend resident Linda Naerheim wants them to know that producing sustainable products using sustainable practices — not simply making a profit — is a core principle of the business. So along with a picture of her daughter and “100% Natural” on the label, Elements Naturals’ baby wipes packaging will soon sport a designation indicating

the company meets environmental and social standards established by a Pennsylvania-based nonprofit called B Lab.

Matching principles Seeking the certification fits with Elements Naturals’ founding principles: people, planet and profit. Becoming a Certified B Corporation, Naerheim said, also provides companies networking opportunities. “Elements Naturals baby wipes are nature-made and parent-approved,” Naer-

heim said. “Overall it’s a well-rounded environmental and people-conscious product that is accessible and affordable to families on all levels.” Naerheim started Elements Naturals in 2008 after every brand of baby wipe gave her newborn daughter diaper rash. She took matters into her own hands, creating the market’s first compostable, bio-based baby wipes. The U.S. Agriculture Department defines bio-based products as those made from plant or animal materials. See Baby wipes / B5

After all, he’d recently started payments on an in-house mortgage modification with CitiMortage Inc. “I was speechless, didn’t know what to say. What’s going on? Why? They got our hopes high saying we got approved; everything was going to go through,” recalled Palomo, 23, a car salesman fighting to keep his small home in Riverside, Calif.

Group seeking probe of Facebook tracking By Sara Forden Bloomberg News

WASHINGTON — A privacyrights group said Thursday it is asking the Federal Trade Commission to examine Facebook’s tracking of Internet users after they log off the world’s most popular social-networking service. The Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a letter with the FTC on Thursday, according to Marc Rotenberg, the Washington-based group’s executive director. The group is also asking the agency to examine whether Facebook’s new Ticker and Timeline features boost privacy risks for users by combining biographical information in an easily accessible format, said David Jacobs, consumer protection fellow for EPIC. “We would like the FTC to investigate the extent to which Facebook’s recent changes and its secret tracking of users after they have logged out constitute unfair or deceptive business practice,” Jacobs said in a telephone interview. The letter to the FTC references a Sept. 25 blog posting by Australian blogger Nik Cubrilovic, who wrote that Facebook placed socalled “cookies” on users’ browsers that tracked their Internet activity even after they logged out of Facebook. Although Facebook moved to resolve the issue, “it’s unclear how complete the fix is,” Jacobs said. “There was no security or privacy breach,” Andrew Noyes, a Facebook spokesman, said in an e-mail. “Facebook did not store or use any information it should not have.” Facebook has “no interest in tracking people,” engineer Gregg Stefancik said in a recent blog post. “We do not share or sell the information we see when you visit a website with a Facebook social plugin to third parties and we do not use it to deliver ads to you.” The letter to the FTC is also signed by public interest groups including the American Civil Liberties Union, The American Library Association, the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, the Center for Digital Democracy, the Center for Media and Democracy, Consumer Action, Consumer Watchdog, PrivacyActivism and Privacy Times.

IMF draws fire from developing countries for double standards By Howard Schneider The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — As a financial crisis spread through Asia in the late 1990s, the International Monetary Fund prescribed some harsh medicine for countries such as Indonesia and South Korea. Private banks took losses, and there were dozens of bank closures, nationalizations and mergers. But now that Europe faces a crisis, the approach has been different. The IMF and others have tried to ensure that banks and insurance companies get repaid for their numerous loans to indebted countries such as Greece, Portugal and Ireland. The slow pace of confronting problems involving hundreds of billions of dollars in government loans that may or may not be worth their face value has been blamed for dragging out the crisis and has drawn complaints of a double-standard from Asian officials. Kaushik Basu, an Indian economist, said the IMF’s approach to the crisis buffeting Europe is “not quite what it would be for an emerging country getting into trouble.” Basu, who is vice chairman of a group that represents major emerging nations and advises the IMF, added that in “similar situations you take similar stands, and we are not quite there.” Basu’s criticism is shared by some other Asian officials, who say they wonder whether Europe’s heavy representation on the IMF board and among top management has allowed the developed world to escape the tough medicine forced on developing countries. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde is the former finance minister of France, whose banks are among the largest holders of risky bonds issued by the Greek government. The IMF is involved in negotiating a rescue plan for Greece that would include modest losses for investors in Greek bonds. Struggling European governments, meanwhile, are getting sums of money from the IMF that are disproportionately larger than what the agency made available for crisis-stricken developing countries. The terms of the Greek rescue program are being made more favorable to Greece after efforts by the IMF and European leaders over the past year and a half failed to stabilize the economy. Some economists and analysts say Europe’s spreading crisis

might have been snuffed out faster if losses would have been imposed on Greek bondholders when the debt problems surfaced early last year. Even if that approach had put some banks out of business, the strategy could have prevented Greece’s slide into a deepening recession, these analysts say. In countries such as Uruguay in 1993, several Asian nations later in the 1990s and recently on the periphery of Europe in Iceland, the decision to make private investors rapidly absorb large losses helped return the governments to a sound financial footing and lay the groundwork for the creation of smaller but stronger banking systems. The Greek program is expected to be stretched out over at least four years. And the IMF and the European Central Bank, among others, have put a premium on seeing that Greece repay its more than $300 billion in outstanding bonds. The IMF’s work in Europe is “uncharted territory” for the agency, said Gerd Haeusler, chief executive of Germany’s Bayern LB bank and a former top agency official, speaking at an Institute of International Finance (IIF) conference last weekend. The IMF has become involved in the financial and political intricacies of the world’s largest currency union, the euro zone, which is led by its own set of influential figures. The IMF is funding only about a fourth of the current emergency programs. So instead of its usual practice of conducting bilateral negotiations with a country, the fund is but one member in a troika whose other members, the European Commission and the European Central Bank, don’t always see eye to eye with each other or the IMF. In addition, IMF officials say the world has changed since the failure of the Wall Street investment bank Lehman Brothers in 2008. There’s now much greater concern, they say, about how an expected setback in one country can undermine confidence, lending and economic growth around the world. “The scale of interconnection between crises that emerge in one part of the world and another are altogether different from what we faced a decade ago,” said Tharman Shanmugaratnam, finance minister of Singapore and chairman of the IMF’s chief oversight body. “Everything is on a larger scale, and everything is far more connected than it used to be.”

Teller-ATM hybrids rove rural India taking deposits, processing transfers By Vikas Bajaj New York Times News Service

KOLAD, India — Time was, banks employed armies of human tellers. Later, they replaced many of them with automated teller machines. Now, India is using a hybrid of the two — the human ATM — to expand banking to its vast rural population. Swati Yashwant, a 29-yearold mother of one, is part of a growing legion of roving tellers intent on providing bank accounts to the nearly 50 percent of India’s 300 million households that do not have them. Using a laptop computer, wireless modem and fingerprint scanner, Yashwant opens accounts, takes deposits and processes money transfers for farmers and migrant workers in this small town 70 miles south of Mumbai, India’s financial capital. To reduce the risk of robbery or theft, no transaction by law may exceed 10,000 rupees (about $212). And in practice, many amount to no more than a dollar or two. But with the bulk of India’s population living in villages that have never had a bank branch, Yashwant, with her electronic devices, is a missionary of financial modernity. Many Indians “don’t know anything about banking,” she said in her small office here, which is decorated with a garlanded picture of Ganesh, the Hindu god believed to remove obstacles. “I want to open their accounts and help them understand banking.” Economists and policy makers say mobile agents like Yashwant — who also are employed in countries like Brazil,

“Right now, it’s more of a social obligation. But in a few years, it will be significant.” — Krishna Kumar, managing director, State Bank Mexico and Kenya — represent one of the most promising ways to help the rural poor save and protect their money. Many people in India who do not have bank accounts, for instance, buy gold necklaces or simply keep cash in their unlocked homes. “This is something that could be powerful,” said Abhijit Banerjee, an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who wrote “Poor Economics: A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty” with Esther Duflo.

Introduction to saving The banking agents enable the poor to easily save money they otherwise might be tempted to spend, Banerjee said. And when times are lean, people could withdraw money they had saved, instead of borrowing cash at high rates of interest. The accounts earn currently earn 4 percent annual interest, which is standard for savings accounts in India. There are no maintenance fees, or charges for deposits or withdrawals. “It’s true that this will not make them rich,” Banerjee said, “but it will make them less likely to face starvation someday.”

Yashwant is one of an estimated 60,000 of what Indian bankers call “business correspondents,” who are not bank employees but earn commissions that the banks pay them for each transaction. The Reserve Bank of India, the country’s central bank, began the push for banking correspondents about five years ago. After slow initial growth, the central bank predicts the ranks of correspondents will more than double, to 126,000, by March. The Reserve Bank has ordered commercial banks to set up correspondents in every village with more than 2,000 people and has assigned each of those villages to one bank or another. For India’s banks, it is a relatively inexpensive way to recruit customers. While about 70 percent of India’s population is dispersed among more than 600,000 villages, the entire country has only 33,500 bank branches. Correspondents like Yashwant have set up 74 million bank accounts in India. “If you used the traditional high-cost banking system, you will never reach these people,” said Jayant Sinha, who is managing director of the India office of Omidyar Network, a philanthropic investment firm set up by Pierre

Omidyar, the founder of eBay. Yashwant has been a correspondent in Kolad for four months, for State Bank, India’s biggest bank. The $200 or so she earns in an average month is a good wage in rural India, where the average monthly income is only about $65.

Balances growing Because of the small sums involved, State Bank says it loses money on most of the accounts opened by correspondents. The balances in those accounts total 1.1 billion rupees ($21.8 million), not even a rounding error relative to State Bank’s total deposits of about $200 billion. Still, officials said that while the average account balance was only 160 rupees ($3.30) at the end of August, it has increased steadily. As recently as March, the average balance was just 100 rupees. Over time, State Bank officials say, they expect the accounts to be large enough to be worth the bank’s investment. “Right now, it’s more of a social obligation,” Krishna Kumar, a managing director at State Bank, said in his wood-paneled 18thfloor office in Mumbai. “But in a few years, it will be significant.”

A N S&P boosts GM’s debt rating


By Brent Snavely Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Standard & Poor’s said Thursday that it has upgraded General Motors Co.’s debt rating after reviewing the company’s new four-year contract with the United Auto Workers union. “We believe the contract will allow for continued profitability and cash generation in North America,” Robert Schulz of Standard & Poor’s said in a statement. The UAW announced on Wednesday that its members had voted to ratify the contract by a 2-1 ratio. Standard & Poor’s increased GM’s debt rating from BB- to BB+. Higher credit ratings are desirable because they help to lower a company’s borrowing costs and interest payments. “Our fortress balance sheet and low break-even point are helping us succeed even in uncertain economic times, so we can stay focused on building great products and driving profitable growth around the world,” GM CFO Dan Ammann said in a statement.

Ford, Chrysler talks UAW President Bob King has said he will use the contract with GM as a framework for discussions at Ford and Chrysler, where talks are ongoing, and has said that winning more U.S. jobs for autoworkers is a top priority. Ford has been in labor talks with the UAW for a new four-year agreement since the last week of July. The company’s current contract was scheduled to expire on Sept. 14, but was indefinitely extended. King and UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles have been involved in contract talks at Ford that have gone late into the evening for three consecutive days. The UAW has told its members that it is now closing in on a deal with Ford and is optimistic it can reach a new agreement by the end of this week. “Some of our subcommittees have finalized their language and are being closed out,” said Tony Vultaggio, president of UAW Local 228 in Sterling Heights, Mich., and a member of the UAW’s bargaining committee, in a phone message for members late Wednesday. “This is certainly good progress.”

Jorge Rodriguez installs a Bluetooth system on a Toyota vehicle at a port production line at Port Newark in New Jersey. Toyota’s 185 employees at the facility work to install optional features in millions of vehicles to be shipped up and down the Eastern Seaboard.

Far from the factory, adding final touches By Ken Belson New York Times News Service

PORT NEWARK, N.J. — To travelers landing at Newark Liberty International Airport, the vast asphalt fields of vehicles on the ground below look like so many livestock pens. Staged in these open-air waiting rooms are thousands of cars and trucks that will shortly be hauled to dealerships up and down the Eastern Seaboard. What can’t be seen from the air are the dockside finishing schools that apply the final touches to half a million vehicles that pass through each year. Here — as at other seaports — dedicated facilities owned by individual automakers, as well as giant multibrand processing centers, shepherd autos arriving from overseas and ready them for buyers. It’s not just a quick wash and wax. Within these nondescript buildings at the edge of Newark Bay, inspections are done, repairs are made, and hundreds of accessories, from satellite radios to alloy wheels to roof racks, are installed. Take, for example, the sprawling 250-acre operation of FAPS, which has the contracts for makers including Ferrari, Honda, Mazda, Nissan and Volvo. The company, which moved to Newark 55 years ago from New York, established itself repairing the damage done when imported cars were still hoisted off the ship by cranes. Today its services still include body repairs (although cars are now driven from the ship’s hold) but it also does the accessory installations and manages distribution logistics.

“Everything is now plug-and-play. No splicing wires like we did years ago.” — Nelson Noda, team leader at Toyota’s Newark facility Toyota’s 98-acre operation at Newark’s port is something of a scaled-down assembly plant, although the work — adding a range of so-called port-installed options into 21 different models — is done largely by hand using simple tools, not by industrial robots controlled by computers. About 185 employees work in Toyota’s carwash, quality control center and five production shops here. By adding items like floormats and GPS systems at its distribution centers instead of at its factories, Toyota gives customers a chance to tinker with their orders until just two days before the vehicles dock in Newark. And it gives dealers a way to stand apart from their competitors. “We want to tailor the vehicle to what the customer wants,” said Bill Barrett, the national logistics manager at the Newark location. “We build the car they want.” The facility, which Toyota has operated for more than two decades, serves as a way station for up to 12,500 cars at a time that arrive by ship from Japan. Nearly every Toyota, Lexus and Scion built in Japan and destined for sale from Virginia to Maine passes through the facility. In a typical week, two shiploads of Toyotas arrive, although since the March tsunami slowed production, the pace has slowed to one ship a week. The process

of customizing the roughly 3,000 vehicles that arrive on each ship starts the day before it docks in Newark. That’s when John Hagel, who runs the driving team, determines how many longshoremen and drivers will be needed to get the vehicles to their parking spots, which are assigned by the accessories to be added. One day last month, for instance, it took about 100 drivers eight hours to unload a ship that had made the four-week trip from Tahara, Japan, through the Panama Canal. Once parked, the vehicles are inspected; any damaged in transit go to the body shop. Only one vehicle that arrived on that boat in August needed work, Barrett said. Next, the bar codes on the shipping manifests, which include a list of accessories to be added, are scanned. Lexus vehicles, which receive more attention than Toyotas and Scions, are also driven on a bumpy track to check for squeaks and rattles. This month, Toyota’s production returned to pre-tsunami levels. That means more to do for Nelson Noda’s team of about a dozen workers, whose job is to install electronics, including alarms, satellite radios and remote starters. The work is done as the cars move down the middle of a building about the size of a football field. Employees at the work stations to the left and right complete a variety of tasks. One worker spent about 30 minutes installing a Bluetooth hands-free system under the steering column of a red Prius. He needed just a few tools to complete his task and test the system. “Everything is now plug-andplay,” Noda said. “No splicing wires like we did years ago.”

Ford said to discuss adding 10,000 U.S. jobs By Keith Naughton, John Lippert and Tim Higgins Bloomberg News

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Ford is discussing adding as many as 10,000 jobs in the United States in negotiations with the United Auto Workers union on a new fouryear contract, according to three people familiar with the talks. The job-creation discussion is part of high-level negotiations between Ford and UAW President Bob King over wages, benefits, and employment gains in the new contract and is still subject to change, said the people, who asked not to be identified revealing internal deliberations. As many as 4,000 of those jobs may come from Ford shifting production of the Fusion midsize sedan to the United States from Mexico, one of the people said. The UAW may reach an agreement this week on a contract covering Ford’s 41,000 workers, Joel Goddard, co-chairman of the union’s bargaining committee said in a recorded message Monday. Ford, which earned $4.95 billion in the first half of

the year, is seeking to lower labor costs in the new contract. New hires are paid about half as much as senior workers. “Jobs have been a central goal of the union in this round of negotiations,” said Harley Shaiken, a labor professor at the University of California at Berkeley. “Ford, which is the most advanced in its recovery, is a natural for this kind of job creation.” General Motors agreed to add or retain 6,400 jobs in a tentative agreement it reached with the UAW on Sept. 16. GM’s 48,500 hourly workers ratified that contract with 65 percent of production workers and 63 percent of skilled-trades workers voting for it, the union said Wednesday.

‘Obama stepped in’ “Two years ago, GM and Chrysler were hanging by a thread when President Obama stepped in and invested federal funds to help turn the companies and the U.S. auto industry around, protecting the auto supplier base and keeping good-pay-

ing jobs in America,” King said in a statement. Ford avoided the bankruptcies and bailouts that befell GM and Chrysler. Ford now produces the Fusion at a factory in Hermosillo, Mexico, which employs 3,335 workers, according to the automaker’s website.

Top seller Sales of the Fusion in the U.S., where it is Ford’s top-selling car, rose 16 percent this year to 168,929 models through August. Last year, Ford sold 219,219 Fusions in the U.S., according to researcher Autodata of Woodcliff Lake, N.J. King met Tuesday with John Fleming, Ford’s chief of manufacturing and labor affairs, to discuss new work the automaker may be willing to put into U.S. plants, one of the people said. King shifted to Dearborn, Mich.based Ford last week after talks faltered with Fiat-controlled Chrysler, which said it extended its contract to Oct. 19. “We have accelerated our

talks,” Goddard, the union’s Ford bargaining committee co-chairman, said in a telephone recording late Sept. 26. “We are optimistically hopeful we will have good news for our membership by the end of the week.” Marcey Evans, a Ford spokeswoman, declined to comment. “We’re not commenting on the details of talks,” said Michele Martin, a UAW spokeswoman. King is “confident that we are on track to secure an economic package that our membership deserves,” Anderson Robinson, recording secretary of the union’s Ford bargaining committee, said in a recorded message Tuesday. He added that King and UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles met “for several hours” with Ford bargainers yesterday. Hiring entry-level workers would help Ford lower its labor costs because they start at about $14 an hour, half what senior employees make, Shaiken said. Ford has said it has fewer than 100 entry-level workers among its hourly workforce, the fewest of the U.S. automakers.

Baby wipes

being upheld. To qualify, a company must score an 80 out of 200 on the B impact assessment created by B Lab’s Standards Advisory Council. Elements Naturals is one of 455 companies nationwide, one of 30 companies in Oregon and the only one in Bend with B Certification, according to the B Corporation website. The company earned a B Composite score of 93.2, earning its highest marks in accountability, environment and community.

Continued from B1 Headquartered in Bend, Elements Naturals has partners that manufacture the baby wipes throughout the United States. The wipes can be purchased through more than 300 retailers nationwide including several e-commerce sites and locally at Whole Foods, Nature’s and Sweet Peas Diaper Service. Naerheim also plans to expand the company’s product lines into feminine hygiene and outdoorrelated items, she said. In March, Elements Naturals received Certified B Corporation status from B Lab, an organization with a vision to change the ethos of the economy, according to its website. It wants to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The B Certification lets consumers know Elements Naturals and other companies are dedicated to having a positive social and environmental impact, sort of like the LEED certification for green buildings. B Lab was founded in 2007 to create mechanisms that support sustainable businesses whose bottom lines go beyond making a profit for their shareholders, said Jordan Chazin, ratings associate at B Lab. “We want to be able to enable companies to make decisions based not on just shareholders, but on the companies’ stake holders such as the local community, the consumer, employees or the environment,” he said.

‘Fully accountable’ “As a B Corporation, we are fully accountable to a legal business entity that can actually verify that we are performing in a socially and environmentally acceptable way that adheres to their standards,” Naerheim said. With so many types of certifications it is difficult for the consumer to tell the difference between a good company and good marketing. While smaller companies like Elements Naturals want to demonstrate their legitimacy to consumers, they often have to pay a hefty fee to get product certification, she said. In an effort to earn a level of accountability without the cost, Naerheim went to B Lab. The certification cost $500. In conjunction with the assessment, Chazin said a big part of certification is making a legal change to the DNA of the company. “(Companies with B Certification) make a fundamental change to their articles of incorporation,” Chazin said. “By making the change it doesn’t require the directors of the company to solely focus on shareholder profit. Instead, they can focus on environmental and socially responsible practices.” B Lab also seeks to codify the ideas into laws that recognize a business structure known as a benefit corporations. Five states have adopted benefit corporation legislation, and several others are considering it, according to the B Corporation website. But the movement, or specific legislation to create such corporations, has generated opposition, from organizations concerned about creating a special class of corporation that would get treated differently. A California State Bar committee opposed a bill to create benefit

B Lab’s criteria To achieve B Certification, Chazin said, a company must meet standards that measure its environmental and social impact. The assessment examines the diversity of the workforce and employee treatment, the company’s impact on the environment from production to use, community involvement with local suppliers, donations to charitable organizations, the impact of the product to consumers and the accountability of the company. B Lab even measures how the company builds social and environmental responsibility into the company’s governance, Chazin said. Companies earn high scores by having transparent practices that show how their missions are

corporations in that state, in part, because the legislation appeared to benefit B Lab. The state of Oregon does not include B Corporation in its legal structure, but having certification from a third-party organization such as B Lab gives companies like Elements Naturals merit to investors and consumers, said James Ellis, chairman of the Business Administration Department at Central Oregon Community College. “All of the B level requirements speaks to investors as a mandate for how you are going to run your business,” he said. “B Corporations hold each other accountable for sustainable products, processes and practices.” But Ellis said B Certification is also a tool for the consumer, not just a marketing ploy. “(B Corporations) are really trying to change and create a new type of corporation that is socially responsible,” he said. “Once the consumer becomes more familiar with B Corporations, they’ll be more likely to choose a B Certified product if they are trying to minimize their carbon footprint and participate in a more socially responsible world.”

Continued from B1 Today there are at least 4.2 million homeowners who, like Palomo, are late on their mortgage payments or somewhere in the delinquency and foreclosure process. The first wave of foreclosures came during the 2008 financial crisis as subprime mortgages given to weak borrowers imploded. Now the subsequent economic downturn and high unemployment keep housing depressed. The administrations of George W. Bush and Barack Obama both offered incentives for lenders to help homeowners modify their mortgages. Four years into the housing crisis, banks and their bill collectors, known as mortgage servicers, are still under fire

Debit fees Continued from B1 That comes on top of another loss, of $5.6 billion, from rules restricting overdraft fees, which went into effect in July 2010. And even though retailer groups had argued that lower fees were important to keep prices in check, consumers were not likely to see substantial savings. In fact, they are simply going to end up paying from a different pot of money. Or as Jamie Dimon, chief executive of JPMorgan Chase, put it after passage last year of the Dodd-Frank act, “If you’re a restaurant and you can’t charge for the soda, you’re going to charge more for the burger.” Chase is now charging customers for a paper statement. It also, like most other banks, scrapped its debit card rewards program. And customers that Chase inherited from Washington Mutual no longer enjoy free checking accounts. The bank is also exploring a number of other fee increases, including for online banking, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Bank of America’s debit fee is steeper than most of its competitors’, reflecting the broader

Not concerned with bottom line B Certified companies aren’t looking at the bottom line, but the impact on society, Ellis said. If consumers are concerned with social and environmental impact, they might want to start seeing that stamp more often. Although many baby wipes claim to be “natural,” they are actually plastic-based and use toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process, Naerheim said. The natural ingredients used in Elements Naturals baby wipes allow them to break down easily in landfills, she said. Elements Naturals is made from Ingeo, a man-made fiber created from dextrose, or sugar, found in feed corn, wheat and other plants, and from ingredients approved by the environmentally friendly organizations Ecocert and the Natural Products Association. “Our product is increasing the parenting green score, decreasing harmful exposure of chemicals and reducing waste,” she said.

for their response to troubled borrowers. From December 2009 through June, more than 1.6 million government-backed mortgage modifications had been started, but only 791,000 became permanent. These numbers remain well below the goal of 4 million modifications that the Obama administration set for itself. This year the Treasury Department began grading mortgage servicers. On Sept. 1, it determined that, based on performance during the first six months of 2011, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase needed serious improvement. Government payments for mortgage modifications were withheld from these banks. CitiMortgage escaped that fate but was found to be in need of moderate improvement.

challenges the bank is facing after the financial crisis. Citibank is one of the few that said it would not introduce a charge for debit card use. “We have talked to customers, and they have made it abundantly clear that ‘if you charge me to use my debit card, I would find that very irritating,’” said Stephen Troutner, head of Citi’s banking products. “Durbin essentially moves the cost of debit away from merchants, and now it’s more focused on consumers,” said Beth Robertson, director of payments research at Javelin. “There are all sort of things happening where banks are saying. ‘Where can we put fees in place for our service to generate revenue or how can we reduce our costs?’” In a statement on Thursday, Durbin, D-Ill., said that small businesses would benefit from the new limits. “Swipe fee regulation will still allow banks to cover the actual costs of debit transactions but will rein in the banks’ excessive profit-taking.”

B  B Pacific Pellet gets federal biofuel grant Pacific Pellet LLC in Redmond is one of seven Oregon companies to receive money from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for development of advanced biofuels. The USDA will pay about $6,100 to the wood-pellet manufacturer, according to a news release from the agency. The company began production last year in the former Crown Pacific plywood plant. The 2008 farm bill authorized the payments, which go to 160 companies in 41 states, according to the news release. Companies must apply to receive the payments.

Nokia will cut 3,500 more jobs in overhaul Nokia, the Finnish cellphone maker, said Thursday that it would eliminate 3,500 jobs, or 6 percent of its workforce, by closing a factory in Romania and transferring production to more efficient plants in Asia. The unexpected announcement, which sent Nokia’s shares up 2 percent in Helsinki, was the second wave of cuts this year from the company, a former global market leader, which began a 12 percent reduction in jobs in April. Nokia’s chief executive, Stephen Elop, described the Romanian plant closing as part of the company’s continuing effort to streamline production and meet consumer demand for smartphones and to prepare for Nokia’s software collaboration with Microsoft. The company’s shares have fallen by half since Elop, a former Microsoft senior executive, announced in February that new Nokia phones would include the Windows Phone operating system by Microsoft. — Staff and wire reports

Enrollment at Oregon State University-Cascades Campus grew by about 10 percent compared with last year, according to preliminary data released by the campus. Junior, senior and graduate

student enrollment is now 750, though that number will not be finalized until the fourth week of the term. OSU-Cascades does not yet have totals for lower-level students who are enrolled both at the campus and Central Oregon Community College.

OSU-Cascades’ growth has been driven by the economic downturn and an enrollment boom at Central Oregon Community College. The campus has also added programs in recent years, and it hopes to expand offerings in the near future.

The campus projected just 4 percent growth for 2011-12. That number, though, was lower than what campus officials hoped for as OSU-Cascades aims to hit 2,000 students by 2020 — the magic number campus officials believe will justify converting OSU-Cascades into a full-fledged four-year university.

SALEM — When it comes housing inmates, there are certain fixed costs — they must eat, they need clothes and their medical conditions can’t be ignored. At the governor’s request, and in light of the most recent economic forecast showing a dip, every state agency is penciling out how to slash another 5 to 10 percent from their bottom lines. For the Department of Corrections, officials said that task is proving to be exceptionally difficult. While the prison population is on the rise, state budgets are being tightened. Tim Walker, with the legislative fiscal office, pointed out that the department has mandatory sentencing laws that are difficult to change and limited flexibility when it comes to cost-saving measures. “Other agencies tend to have more flexibility,” he said. Today and for the first time, a new public safety commission created by the governor will meet to begin looking at the state’s criminal justice system. The commission will examine the state’s mandatory sentencing requirements and take a comprehensive look at how the system is working. While the state is experiencing some of the lowest crime rates in at least four decades, it’s also seeing an increase in inmate population. See Prisons / C5

During his tenure with High Desert ESD, Dempsey also served as superintendent of the Brothers School Dis-

He has worked in education for more than 36 years. “The highlight has been the opportunity to work with amazing students and people who are passionate about the children they serve,” he said.

The owner of a miniature donkey that was shot and killed last week is hoping somebody knows something that will help her unravel the mystery. On Sept. 22, Karen Skye found 5-year-old Little Cloud dead, leaning up against a fence on her property off Deschutes Market Road north of Bend. The donkey had been shot twice in the head, once in the nose and once between the eyes. Deschutes County Sheriff’s investigators determined the shooter had used a .22 caliber weapon and found fresh tire tracks and footprints leading from the shoulder of the road to the edge of Skye’s fence. “It appears that she was shot within about 10 or 15 feet, someone just decided to pull over and shoot her for heaven knows what reason,” she said. Little Cloud was shot within a roughly 24-hour window before Skye found her dead. See Donkey / C5

Couple found guilty in faith-healing trial The Associated Press OREGON CITY — A couple who prayed and rubbed olive oil on their sick infant rather than seek medical care for the dying boy was convicted Thursday of manslaughter, becoming the latest members of an Oregon faithhealing church to be blamed in their child’s death. Dale and Shannon Hickman, both 26, are members of the Followers of Christ Church, which has a history of rejecting medical care for congregants’ children and relying instead on techniques such as prayer and anointing the sick with oils. Five other church members have been convicted in Clackamas County for crimes related to the rejection of medical care for their children, said Greg Horner, chief deputy district attorney.

The Hickmans’ conviction on second-degree manslaughter charges typically requires a mandatory minimum sentence of six years in prison. But because of a religious exemption in state law at time of the crime, the couple likely will face no more than 18 months in prison and a $250,000 fine, The Oregonian reported. Clackamas County Circuit Court Judge Robert Herndon allowed the couple to remain free until they are sentenced Oct. 31. Prosecutors claimed Shannon Hickman never sought prenatal care when she was pregnant with David, who was born two months early at his grandmother’s home and died less than nine hours later when he had trouble breathing. He was born with a bacterial infection and

underdeveloped lungs. Medical experts for the prosecution testified that the baby had a 99 percent chance of survival if his parents had sought medical care. But prosecutors claimed the couple never considered taking the baby to the hospital. Defense attorney Mark Cogan said his clients were the victims of religious persecution. He argued that the baby died quickly and said there was no evidence that medical care would have saved him. Dale Hickman testified that he didn’t call 911 once he realized his infant son was ailing “because I was praying.� Shannon Hickman said that as a woman in the church, she must defer to her husband. “That’s not my decision any-

way,� she testified. “I think it’s God’s will whatever happens.� In response to deaths among Followers of Christ members, state lawmakers this year removed the religious defenses from criminal laws. Those exemptions had made it tougher to convict parents who shun a child’s medical care for religious reasons than those who shun it for other reasons like neglect. The change would allow prosecutors to seek stiffer manslaughter or murder charges in faith-healing cases. Two other parents from the Followers of Christ church were convicted earlier this year for failing to seek medical care for their infant daughter, who had a growth that could have left her blind in one eye. They were sentenced to 90 days in jail.

Trial set for man who crashed van, fled scene A La Pine man who flipped his minivan with four children inside and fled the scene will go to trial on various charges Nov. 1. Davin Wayne Davis, 30, rolled his van on a Forest Service road a few miles south of Pringle Falls on Aug. 22. He ran from the scene when law enforcement officers arrived, leaving behind his four children ranging in age from 2 to 13, but was later arrested by Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies. None of the children were seriously injured. Davis faces charges of secondand third-degree assault, failure to perform the duties of a driver, driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and four counts of recklessly endangering another person.

Bend man arrested in Wednesday shooting A Bend man was arrested Wednesday after police say he fired shots at a Bend apartment complex earlier in the week. Brandon Lee Wolf, 20, was arrested on suspicion of attempted assault, unlawful use of a weapon, reckless endangering, felon in possession of a firearm and criminal mischief after police determined he fired several shots at an apartment on Northeast Watt Way early Tuesday morning.

Three people, including a 2year-old girl, were home during the time of the shooting, but no one was injured during the incident. Police found evidence that someone associated with an apartment on Northeast Mary Rose Place was most likely responsible for the shooting. Police identified Wolf as a person of interest, and Wednesday located and seized a pistol believed to have been used in the shooting. Wolf was arraigned in Deschutes County Circuit Court on Wednesday afternoon. Deputy District Attorney John Char said investigators believe Wolf fired three shots, and that it appears he was attempting to target a man who had harassed his girlfriend. Wolf is being held on $10,000 bail.

PORTLAND — A federal agency has found that a contractor failed to act as quickly as it could have to protect soldiers and civilians from exposure to a carcinogenic chemical at an Iraqi water treatment plant. The report by the U.S. Defense Department’s inspector general faults contractor Kellogg, Brown and Root for failing to comply with safety and health standards, which led to nearly 1,000 Army soldiers and civilian employees being exposed to sodium dichromate over five months, The Oregonian reported Thursday. Sodium dichromate is an anticorrosive compound that can cause skin and breathing problems and cancer. The report said it took five months from the initial site visit until the military command required protective equipment. The report said Kellogg, Brown and Root did not fully comply with occupational safety and health standards required under its contract with the Army, so “a greater number of service members and (Department of Defense) civilian employees were exposed to sodium dichromate, and for longer periods, increasing the potential for chronic health effects.� Asked for comment, Kellogg, Brown and Root requested questions in writing but did not immediately respond after The Associated Press complied with the request. The company has previously denied knowingly exposing soldiers or contractors to health risks. Members of the Oregon National Guard have filed suit over alleged exposure to the chemical while they were at the Qarmat Ali water treatment plant. Rocky Bixby, of Tualatin, a

JUNCTION CITY — Gov. John Kitzhaber has told a town hall meeting that he’s committed to building a psychiatric care facility in the city as part of a plan for community-based mental health care in Oregon. He said Wednesday that the facility is needed to replace aging psychiatric hospitals that will close in Portland and Pendleton. “Those facilities are falling apart, and they’re inadequate,� he said. “It’s more cost-effective to build a new facility� than to renovate those hospitals. The Legislature will have to approve $29 million in construction bonds to keep plans on schedule to open a Junction City hospital in 2015, The Register Guard reported. “I would not be in support of building this institution if it wasn’t part of a larger mosaic of how we provide care to those with mental illness in this state,� Kitzhaber said. Kitzhaber, a medical doctor who has kept his license active, said he believes the state can deliver care cheaper with fewer restrictions to patients through community-based, preventative care. If that model is established, he said the Junction City facility could transition into a prison that specializes in treating mentally ill inmates.

O  B Armed Portland man Jackie O’s half-brother surrenders to police behind bars again PORTLAND — An armed man who surrendered to police early Thursday in Portland had 12 guns, 2,000 rounds of ammunition and body armor in his apartment. John Griffin had been reported for bizarre behavior in the past week, and on Wednesday night, he reportedly leaned out a downtown apartment window and pointed a rifle at a woman. Officers closed off the area while negotiators talked with him by phone. He came out several hours later. Last week police say the 50-year-old Griffin was walking the halls of the apartment building with a rifle, wearing a bullet-proof vest and telling neighbors “We are under the siege.” On Tuesday, police say he was seen screaming out the window wearing the vest and a gas mask. Police say he’ll get mental health treatment.

Medical marijuana grower James Anderson looks glumly over the remains of a Gold Hill garden Thursday that held hundreds of pot plants before federal agents pulled them out and hauled them away. Anderson said he and others growing on the property were within the limits of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Plan, but that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency took them anyway.

Agents raid medical pot garden Growers say their operation was within state regulations By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

GOLD HILL — An insurance agent whose rental homes were searched by dozens of federal agents said Thursday that he made sure the 20 people he allowed to grow medical marijuana on his property had checked out under Oregon’s medical marijuana law. But that didn’t stop the Tuesday raid in which 30 agents broke down doors on his five houses in the southern Oregon town of Gold Hill, pointed guns at his wife, ripped out hundreds of plants and seized shotguns, cell phones and a tractor, said Keith Rogers. He said that if state drug officials had searched the property, “they would have happily drove off and did nothing.” But he said “it was strictly (the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration). They are throwing their weight around and saying the voters of Oregon don’t have any rights.” The federal agency referred comment to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Portland, which did not respond to calls and e-mails from The Associated Press. The raid was first reported by KTVLTV in Medford. The search appeared to conform to guidance offered in U.S. Department of Justice memos directing federal agents to enforce drug laws, even in states that have legalized medical marijuana. A June 29 memo signed by Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole clarified guidance in such states, saying that federal agents should not waste their time on individuals such as cancer patients using medical marijuana. But it said “prosecution of significant traffickers of illegal

“They have an unspoken rule they tend to employ. They are really looking for anything over 100 plants. If it is below 100 plants, it does not invite civil forfeiture the way large patches do.” — Allen St. Pierre, National Organization to Legalize Marijuana

drugs, including marijuana, remains a core priority.” Allen St. Pierre of the National Organization to Legalize Marijuana said federal agents regularly bust medical marijuana growing sites in California and Washington. “They have an unspoken rule they tend to employ,” St. Pierre said from Washington, D.C. “They are really looking for anything over 100 plants. If it is below 100 plants, it does not invite civil forfeiture the way large patches do.” The search warrant that agents left with Rogers showed aerial photos of his property with distinctive round circles in regular rows that often indicate marijuana gardens. About 200 plants can be seen in the photo. Oregon law allows a grower to have six plants or 24 ounces of processed marijuana for each of up to four patients. It would mean that the total maximum amount allowed for all 20 growers would be 480 plants. That amount would cover the 472 that federal agents alleged was on the property, even

though grower James Anderson said the real number was closer to 200. Rogers said agents seized paperwork verifying that people growing on his property were within the law. “We poked the bear,” Anderson said as he stood in a guard tower and looked down at the churned earth that remained of the garden. “When you poke the bear, he come after you.” Anderson, who also lives with his wife and two children on the property, said he had just put his 6-year-old son on the school bus and returned to bed with his wife and the baby when “the dog went off.” He went to the door and found federal agents, who handcuffed him and his wife outside the house. A neighbor was hauled outside in her underwear and handcuffed in view of the freeway nearby, he said. No one was arrested. He said he did not see the search warrant until he was released and found a copy left inside. Anderson said he made $15 an hour laying sewer pipes for new housing subdivisions until the market collapsed. He accepts donations from patients he grew for but did not demand payment, which is prohibited by state law. Otherwise, he supports his family on odd jobs, some from his patients. James Bowman, who oversees a medical marijuana plantation that grows for more than 100 plants in nearby Jacksonville, said he was always nervous that federal agents could target his operation. “We are basically doing civil disobedience against the federal government by doing what we are doing,” he said.

Magistrate recommends vacating logging plan By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

GRANTS PASS — A federal magistrate recommended Thursday that a Bush administration plan to double logging on some federal lands in western Oregon should be vacated. U.S. Magistrate Judge James Hubel found that the Bureau of Land Management failed to properly consult federal biologists over the potential harm to endangered species like the northern spotted owl before adopting the Western Oregon Plan Revision, known as the WOPR. His recommendation must be approved by a federal judge. If it is endorsed, the Bush-era plan would be replaced by the Northwest Forest Plan, which

was adopted in 1994 to settle bitter court battles to protect spotted owl and salmon habitat from logging. That plan cut logging by more than 80 percent. Conservation groups said they looked forward to returning to a more balanced approach to managing federal lands to protect fish and wildlife. “The judge confirmed what everyone’s been saying for years — that BLM took an illegal shortcut to avoid scientific scrutiny of its plan,” said Kristen Boyles, an attorney for Earthjustice who represented conservation groups. Timber industry spokesman Tom Partin said they were disappointed with the outcome, because it meant fewer timber jobs

and less money for rural counties that share in federal timber revenues. “It was the best science BLM and all the regulatory agencies could come up with in the five years they were working on the western Oregon plan revisions,” said Partin, president of the American Forest Resource Council in Portland. He said he believed the BLM’s decision to make Endangered Species Act consultations over individual logging projects rather than the plan as a whole was valid, though the magistrate disagreed. A timber industry lawsuit claiming the logging volumes set out in the plan were too low was still pending.

Then he allowed all five renters, as well as others, to grow on the property. “It was agree to what was going on, or let the bank have the property back,” he said. “I’m just a guy trying to keep my property. I’m just certain this is gonna push me into bankruptcy.”

Cornelius mayor, 2 councilors recalled CORNELIUS — The mayor of Cornelius and two City Council members who aligned with him have been recalled. The Oregonian reported voters Tuesday turned out Mayor Neal Knight and councilors Jamie Minshal and Mari Gottwald. They had been elected in November, promising to downsize local government. The recall campaign was started by residents who objected to the firing in June of City Manager Dave Waffle.

MEDFORD — The half-brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, James Auchincloss, is back in jail in Medford, accused of violating terms of his probation in a child pornography case. A Jackson County sex offender program manager, Nate Gaoiran, told the Mail Tribune the 64-year-old Ashland man was arrested Tuesday and is being held without bail for a hearing. He did not say how Auchincloss violated probation. He pleaded guilty in August 2010 to encouraging child sexual abuse for having computer images of naked boys. As part of his sentence he was ordered to undergo sex offender treatment.

5 antelope carcasses illegally dumped SUTHERLIN — The Oregon State Police are investigating the dumping of five antelope carcasses on the property of a timber company in southern Oregon. The state police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the person or people responsible for dumping the remains. The antelope carcasses were discovered Thursday morning in Marvin Hill, about 20 miles north of Roseburg. Troopers also found several other items littering the site. — From wire reports

Skatepark needs a high priority


he Bend Park & Recreation District built its skatepark at Ponderosa Park on 15th Street nearly two decades ago, during “the infancy of skateparks,” according to district

Executive Director Don Horton. Since then, the design and audience for skateparks has changed dramatically. Other communities across the nation, state and region have built modern facilities. Not Bend. Skateboard enthusiasts say there’s been lots of talk, and a new skatepark has long been on the list of the park district’s projects, but somehow it never happens. How can it be, they say, that a recreation mecca like Bend hasn’t moved into the modern age on skateboarding? Horton says the district does regular surveys of taxpayers’ priorities, and a new skatepark has not received the support that would push it to the top of the list for funding. He didn’t speculate on the reason for that, but he did say the old stereotype of skaters as hoodlums is longsince out of date. There’s a whole new audience, he says, that involves adults as well as kids. Market research indicates there are approximately 9.3 million skateboarders in the United States today, according to Peter Whitley, program director for the Tony Hawk Foundation, which supports the building of skateparks. Locally, Madras and Redmond have both built skateparks in recent years, and an effort in Sisters that involves community leaders and high school students is moving toward construction in the spring, according to Sisters High math teacher Daniel O’Neill. In Bend, the park district did try a small satellite skatepark about four years ago at Quail Park across Mt.

Washington Drive from Central Oregon Community College. Such satellite or “spot” skateparks have been popular elsewhere, but complaints about noise caused the district to shut it down. For Horton, the message from that experience is that the need is large and location is critical. Despite a recent push for a skatepark at Miller’s Landing, Horton says the district is focused on a revamp at Ponderosa. There’s a new master plan for Ponderosa, and phase one is about to go to the city for permitting. That phase fixes parking issues, he said, which are necessary before a new skatepark could be built. A separate private effort to build a park at Division Street on land owned by the Oregon Department of Transportation is moving forward, according to organizer Travis Yamada, but there’s general agreement that it’s not a substitute for a park district effort. Horton is working on setting up meetings with skatepark advocates to get their help on a design for a new facility, which he expects to cost about $400,000. The district needs to look beyond those taxpayer surveys. It’s not that the surveys are unimportant, but they’re only one piece of information. And skateboarders may be less likely to fill out surveys than other residents. We hope the district will find that a full consideration of the issues supports a swift move forward on a skatepark.

Demand more from Commission for Blind I

f the Oregon Commission for the Blind were a recalcitrant child, it would have been sent to bed without supper years ago. That it hasn’t is a condemnation not only of the agency but of a system that until now has had no real teeth. The Secretary of State’s office audits state agencies to assure their financial practices are sound and has done so for years. Back in 1995 just such an audit pointed out areas in which the commission’s fiscal management was poor; those or similar problems were found again in audits in 2000, 2001 and, most recently, 2009. Now a follow-up to the 2009 audit reports that, while some progress has been made, the agency overstates its accomplishments, and many of the problems continue. These are not minor matters. Among other things, the agency continues to allow workers to take state automobiles home in violation of state policy, it failed to keep adequate track of where and how its money is being spent and it continued for several

years to lease office space in Lincoln City for a staff expansion that never occurred. The commission’s response was far from satisfactory. Our resources have declined in recent years, Commission Chair Jodi Roth wrote. The state supplies only 9 percent of our budget, she said. We asked for more money but we didn’t get it. Our mission is our most critical concern, more critical than managing our money well. While it is true General Fund dollars make up only a small part of the commission’s budget, the balance comes either from the federal government (tax dollars, again) or from private donors. In both cases, the need for transparency and careful management is still there. Meanwhile, the Secretary of State’s office has been able to do little, says Secretary of State Kate Brown, though that may be changing. Her office is working closely with legislators to hold agency heads accountable for management improvements.

Preserve Bend’s water source By Jeff Eager


n Bend, we are blessed with an abundant supply of some of the finest drinking water in the United States. Our water comes from two sources: yearly, about half from groundwater, pumped to the surface with wells; and about half from Bridge Creek, originating from springs high up in the Cascades. For almost 90 years, Bend residents have put the water they have gotten from Bridge Creek to good use, drinking it, bathing in it, and, of course, brewing beer with it. The water from Bridge Creek is the type of water you want for drinking: clean and cold. Better yet, because the water is diverted from Bridge Creek around 1,000 feet higher in elevation than Bend, it does not need to be pumped, saving money. The Bridge Creek water source is a tremendously valuable asset for our community. Unfortunately, federal regulations, risk of fire in the forest around Bridge Creek, and deteriorating old transmission pipes require investment to preserve this asset. The current estimate of the cost to make the necessary improvements is around $68 million, including a hydroelectric facility, which is a revenue generator. This cost will be paid by ratepayers in the form of increased water rates during a time when few can afford to pay more. Given the high cost of the improvements, some have suggested that it would be better to abandon the Bridge Creek source and rely exclusively on groundwater. Originally, I was inclined to agree. When revenue projections for the surface water project changed, I asked staff to provide the council with a new alternatives analy-

IN MY VIEW sis based on the new numbers. I was, frankly, searching for a reason to avoid the expenditure that will be required to retain the Bridge Creek source. Having weighed the arguments and analyzed the data and projections of the alternatives, however, I have come to believe that it is critical to Bend’s future to maintain its dual-source water system for the following reasons: First, the Bridge Creek source provides a reliable supply of water via proven water rights, a precious combination. Bend owns, on behalf of its ratepayers, rights to divert water from Bridge Creek. Were Bend to abandon that source, there is a grave risk that Bend would be unable to obtain rights to replace the supply with additional groundwater. In fact, one of the environmental interest groups urging abandonment of the Bridge Creek source earlier this year lobbied against legislation extending the program which allows for development of new groundwater rights in the Deschutes Basin, claiming that the program harms the Deschutes River. Abandoning proven Bridge Creek rights for uncertain and likely contested groundwater rights would be irresponsible. Faced with similar choices, other water providers have opted for two sources. The City of Portland, faced with the same federal regulatory requirements as Bend, recently decided to upgrade its Bull Run surface water system. The Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB), currently a sole-source water supplier to Oregon’s second-largest metropolitan area, has spent large sums attempting to develop a second

source of water. EWEB and other water providers strongly urged Bend to retain its dual-source system. The city of Prineville has struggled in recent years to develop sufficient groundwater supplies to grow its struggling economy. One of the obstacles to economic growth in Prineville is the availability of water, in part because Prineville relies on groundwater only and must fight tooth and nail for new groundwater rights. Bend has enough economic problems; we should not add lack of water to the equation. Second, even if Bend could obtain sufficient groundwater rights to replace the Bridge Creek source, the cost of the new infrastructure and electricity to pump the water out of the ground would be more expensive than making the investments needed to the Bridge Creek source. Bend’s analysis shows that the groundwater-only option would be at least $350 million more expensive over the next 50 years. Third, abandonment of the Bridge Creek source, with the attendant risk and cost, is not the best means to achieve the laudable goal of increasing flows in Tumalo Creek (into which Bridge Creek flows downstream from Tumalo Falls) and the Deschutes River. Far more water can be left in stream more cheaply by continuing to strengthen partnerships with environmental, agricultural, tribal and municipal interests, who have a proven track record of results that have led to increased flows in many of the rivers in the Deschutes Basin. Bend should preserve the dualsource system that has served it well for generations. Jeff Eager is the mayor of Bend.

With so much sitting around, vilifying fast food is too simple


f you’ve followed the food wars lately, you’re likely to come away with the notion that McDonald’s and other fast-food outlets bear most of the blame for American obesity, particularly the obesity of poor children. While I’m no particular fan of fast food, experience tells me that view is simplistic at best and downright wrong in some respects. Finding the sorts of fresh fruit and vegetables we all know we should be feeding our kids can be both difficult and expensive if you’re poor. Students of city life know that for a variety of reasons inner-city dwellers often find themselves so far from the supermarket shopping most of us take for granted as to be unable to take advantage of it. A quick Web search turns up studies, newspaper articles and urban planning proposals pointing out the

problem in cities from New York to Los Angeles and looking at ways to address it. Distance to a supermarket is an even bigger problem for the rural poor, and for both groups that leaves reliance on small quick-stop markets that seem to specialize in canned, frozen and other processed foods. Shopping fresh in such establishments is difficult and the quality of what is there is often poor. Convenience is only part of the problem, however. Price is another consideration. The U.S. Department of Agriculture releases its National Fruit and Vegetable Retail Report each Friday, and it tracks the cost of fresh produce across the country. Guess what? In almost every case, fruits and vegetables cost more, sometimes a lot more, than they did a year ago. Moreover, to feed a family of four the 21⁄2 to 61⁄2 cups of fresh

JANET STEVENS fruits and vegetables the government says we each need every day will set you back at least $25 or $30 a week. Many of the vegetables, in particular, require cooking before they can be served. That’s fine if your time is your own. It’s something else again if you get off work at, say, 5 p.m., rely on mass transit to get you to a market miles from your home and back at a cost of as much as $5 or more and finally arrive on your doorstep at 6:30 or 7 p.m., to be greeted by two or three hungry mouths who want their dinner now, please. As one

woman told the Christian Science Monitor, it’s far easier and far, far faster to skip the distant market, go to the neighborhood convenience store and serve canned ravioli, complete with fat and too much salt, that you know your kids will not only eat but enjoy. All of that combines to make a quick trip to McDonald’s look pretty attractive, it seems to me. And yes, fast food companies could do more to improve their menus, though some have made great strides in recent years. Again, however, substituting apple slices for french fries poses a problem for the burger joint. Fries are frozen; until they’re thawed and cooked, the store owner need not worry about spoilage. Apples, meanwhile, are fresh and must be tossed out if they’re not used in fairly short order. Too, apples cost more than potatoes do, making spoilage a two-edged problem.

There are all sorts of reasons for the bulking up of America, and no doubt fast food has played a role. But so, too, have the computer and the television set, the loss of physical education in some classrooms, the reliance on daycare providers who fail to push kids to get outside and play, the moms and dads who plunk kids down in front of the TV because it’s easy and their children like it. In fact, there’s no one reason, no simple solution to the problem. Vilifying fast food chains isn’t productive. Far better to address such things as availability of something better, not only in food but in lifestyle choices that find too many of us, young and old, glued to a screen for hours at a time.

Claude Kirk, ex-Florida governor Dr. James By Matt Schudel Claude Kirk Jr., who during his single, spectacularly colorful term as Florida’s governor from 1967 to 1971, hired a private police force, defied federal court orders and was a herald of a Republican resurgence in the state, died Sept. 28 at his home in West Palm Beach, Fla. He was 85. He had had a heart attack in February, his son Erik Kirk said, and apparently had another heart attack in his sleep. Kirk was elected to office only once, winning Florida’s gubernatorial race in 1966 as the first Republican to hold the seat in 94 years. He promised to improve the state’s recreation, tourism and business climate without raising taxes. He called Miami — the home of his Democratic opponent — a “cesspool of crime” and proffered a slogan that was seen, even in 1966, as a thinly veiled segregationist plea: “Your home is your castle; protect it.”

10,000 miles a month He called the legislature into session to write a new state constitution, hired a private company to look into statewide corruption and traveled 10,000 miles a month to deliver speeches around the country. He once rode a horse to a news conference and planted the state flag on the ocean floor, vowing to use state-owned airplanes to defend Florida’s territorial rights. A New York Times magazine profile in 1967 declared that Kirk was “playing Governor the way Errol Flynn used to play Captain Blood — charming, daring, somewhat arrogant, seldom going by the rules.” As one of the first two GOP governors in the old Confederacy since Reconstruction — Winthrop Rockefeller of Arkansas was also elected in 1966 — Kirk helped lead a Republican revival in the South. He encouraged speculation that he was a favorite for the 1968 Republican vice presidential nomination, which

When Little Cloud didn’t turn up for dinner the following night, Skye went looking for her and found her on the edge of her five-acre property. Little Cloud was the more sociable of the two donkeys, Skye said, and would have been more likely than her mother to be lured to the edge of the pasture by someone outside the fence.

Brazil. Before they could go on their honeymoon, the governor’s political honeymoon was all but over. His short-lived personal investigative agency — provided by the Wackenhut Corp. — prompted charges even from members of his own party that the governor was presiding over a police state of vigilante justice.

ultimately went to Maryland Gov. Spiro T. Agnew. Early in his term, Kirk set up a statewide environmental protection agency and killed a plan to build a barge canal across Florida. Historian and biographer Edmund Kallina Jr. told the Palm Beach Post in 2002 that Kirk “defined the three major issues in Florida for the 20th and 21st centuries: crime, education and the environment.” Interest in Kirk’s dazzling, if brief, political career was heightened when he appeared at his inauguration with a mysterious green-eyed blond beauty, whom he identified only as “Madame X.” About a month after taking office, Kirk married “Madame X,” Erika Mattfeld, a Germanborn actress he had met during a failed business venture in

When he vetoed 48 bills his first year in office, newspapers dubbed him “Claudius Maximus.” In 1970, after federal courts had ordered the desegregation of public schools in Manatee County, Kirk dismissed the superintendent and school board. “Ain’t nobody gonna lay a hand on Claude Jr.,” he taunted federal marshals. “Anybody who lays a glove on a sovereign is committing an illegal act. There is nobody who can bodily force the head of a sovereign state into court.” He relented only when a judge threatened to fine him $10,000 a day. “The garden of controversy must be continually cultivated,” Kirk told Time magazine in 1967.

ergy on the rise, Allen said the department is just now entering the “painful part” of trying to see where more cuts can be made. Right now, he said, there is only one area he can envision to save the amount the state is requesting — and it’s never a politically popular option. “We’ve made proposals around (prison) closures,” he said. “Which is really where you have to go to (get these type of savings.)” There was talk of suspending Measure 57 this session, which cracks down on repeat offenders. But that didn’t happen. The measure is slated to take effect in 2013.

The prison’s population is projected to increase by 600 inmates before the end of 2013. Allen said he could not give specifics of what institutions are being considered for closure. “We have not gotten a response in regards to change of sentencing law or release authority or any legal means by which we could reduce our population,” Allen said. “So, we’re in a bit of a quandary.” Locally, for the state’s newest prison in Madras, the mediumsecurity portion of the facility is scheduled to open in August 2013. With the current prison population projection, the depart-


The energy engineering management program is unique in the Northwest, program lead and instructor Robin Feuerbacher said. Campus officials describe the energy engineering management program as one that makes OSU-Cascades stand out, and now it’s starting to pay off. Last year, the program received approval from the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in October and had four students. Campus officials were unable to recruit for the program because it had not been approved until school started. Now, 22 students are enrolled. Feuerbacher expects the number to hit 50 next year. The program has been around for nearly a year, making it easier for Feuerbacher and others to recruit new students. Feuerbacher, for instance, will soon visit the Corvallis campus to pitch engineering students there on the OSU-Cascades program. Six students are currently enrolled at OSU-Cascades who moved to Bend from Corvallis, a number that could double next year, ac-

Continued from C1 Had growth been at 4 percent, the campus would have had catching up to do. “(Growth) is right on target. This keeps us on track,” said Becky Johnson, the campus vice president who runs OSU-Cascades. Johnson believes several factors are driving the growth. COCC increased enrollment by more than 500 students to about 6,900 this fall. That’s critical for OSUCascades because the two institutions are connected by a two-by-two arrangement, in which students spend two years at COCC before moving on to complete a bachelor’s degree at OSU-Cascades. Additionally, high unemployment rates have driven people back to college. Then, there is OSU-Cascades’ push to add academic programs. OSU-Cascades’ growth occurred in several programs: American studies, natural resources, and human development and family sciences. But it was one of the campus’s newest programs, energy engineering and management, that showed perhaps the most dramatic growth.

“Otherwise, nobody knows you are alive.” Claude Roy Kirk Jr. was born Jan. 7, 1926, in San Bernardino, Calif. His family later moved outside Chicago and to Montgomery, Ala., where his father manufactured vending machines and his mother was a clerk in the Alabama Legislature. Kirk joined the Marine Corps near the end of World War II and then attended Emory University in Atlanta and Duke University before graduating from the University of Alabama law school in 1949. He saw combat with the Marines during the Korean War and then sold insurance in Alabama before moving to Jacksonville, Fla., with $408 to his name. After founding a life insurance company that catered solely to the rich, he earned a small fortune. He had an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate in 1964, and he launched a short-lived investment business in Brazil before returning to Florida for the 1966 governor’s campaign. When criticized for being an outrageous huckster as governor, Kirk replied: “I’m just sellin’ orange juice. Sellin’ orange juice, sellin’ Kirk, sellin’ Florida. People are payin’ attention.”

CHICAGO — Dr. James E. Bowman, a widely recognized expert in inherited blood diseases and population genetics, was the first tenured African-American professor in the University of Chicago’s Biological Sciences Division. Dr. Bowman, 88, died of renal cancer Wednesday at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to the university and his daughter, Valerie Jarrett, who is a senior adviser to President Barack Obama. On Thursday, Jarrett recalled that in all the times she played chess with her father, she won only once — he never let her win just to boost her ego. He took a similar approach to at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine, where he was an assistant dean for minority affairs at the U. of C’s Biological Sciences Division. “His goal was try to increase the number of underrepresented minority students who came to Pritzker, but he really wanted to emphasize that they had to be excellent,” said William McDade, deputy provost for Research and Minority Issues at the University of Chicago. “He didn’t want to see different standards for minority students, he just wanted to have the most excellent minority students that we can train.” Bowman was born Feb. 5, 1923 in segregated Washington, D.C. After graduating from Howard University in 1943, he entered Howard’s medical school that fall and was then drafted into the U.S. Army as part of a three-year medical training program. Bowman eventually came Chicago for an internship at Provident Hospital then accepted a residency at St. Luke’s Hospital (now part of Rush University Medical Center). According to the University of Chicago, he was the first black resident to train at St. Luke’s. Around this time, he met Barbara Taylor, the daughter of Robert Taylor, the first black chairman of the Chicago Housing Authority. The couple married in 1950. Bowman was chairman of pathology for three years at Provident Hospital, then was drafted again into the military, serving as chief of pathology for a laboratory in Denver. After his release, he found himself being offered jobs at pay far less than that of white counterparts, his daughter said. Unhappy with pervasive racial discrimination., Dr. and Mrs. Bowman left the country in 1955 and settled in Shiraz, Iran, where they worked with other foreign doctors to establish Nemazee Hospital.

Central Oregon pros shine in Fall Tour finale By Zack Hall The Bulletin

BLACK BUTTE RANCH — Jeff Fought was hoping to get his game in shape before next week, when he travels to Virginia to play in the Senior PGA Professional National Championship. Fought, the director of golf at Black Butte Ranch, put his home-course knowledge to work Thursday to do just that. Fought shot a 6-under-par 66 at Black Butte’s Big Meadow course to win the final two-round

portion of the Fall Tour. And for Fought, who will tee it up Thursday at the Senior PGA national championship with a chance to earn a berth in the 2012 Senior PGA Championship, the round came at a perfect time. “It feels good,” said Fought, who was celebrating his win by washing off his course’s golf carts after the round. “I just wanted to get a good round under my belt. I feel good about it. It is always fun to win on your home turf.” See Fall Tour / D4

Underdog D’backs ready to keep rolling By John Marshall The Associated Press

BASEBALL Ducks baseball scrimmage, clinic Saturday in Bend Bend’s Vince Genna Stadium will be host Saturday to one final baseball game in 2011, as the University of Oregon Ducks play an intrasquad game starting at 1 p.m. The Ducks will be playing a scrimmage in Central Oregon for the third year in a row as part of their fall schedule.

Following the intrasquad game, UO players and coaches will conduct a free baseball clinic for kids. For more information, visit —Bulletin staff report

Francona might be out as manager for Red Sox Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona may be out as the team’s manager, reported late Thursday night. The story by Ken Rosenthal reported that Francona would meet with team management today, and that the club may decline options on Francona’s contract for 2012 and 2013. Earlier in the day, Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said he wouldn’t make a scapegoat of Francona after the team’s unprecedented September collapse. The Red Sox led the AL wild-card race by nine games on the morning of Sept. 4, but their loss on Wednesday, coupled with a Tampa Bay win, kept them out of the playoffs. — From wire reports

Several tricky turns with sidehill exposure mark the Marsters segment of the North Umpqua Trail.


North Umpqua Though not as demanding as other sections of the trail, the Marsters, Calf and Panther segments offer a scenic challenge Editor’s note: Mountain Bike Trail Guide, by Bulletin outdoor writer Mark Morical, features various trails in Central Oregon and beyond. The trail guide appears in Adventure Sports on alternating Fridays through the riding season.



he North Umpqua Trail is so long and challenging that I could never ride the entire 79 miles in one day — and I would not want to. The renowned trail runs from its east end near Miller

PHOENIX — Asked whether he would play up the underdog role to his upstart Arizona Diamondbacks, Kirk Gibson initially bristled. “Who says we’re the underdog?” the grizzled manager fired back. “I don’t think we feel we are. That’s the most important thing.” But, the more Gibson talked, the more it sounded like he was relishing the role of dark horse. After perfecting the chip-onthe-shoulder thing during 17 bigleague seasons, it seems Gibson doesn’t mind if his team plays that way, too. “We don’t need credit from people with their comments,” he said. “We just need to validate ourselves through our performance, and if we do, they won’t have a choice to give us the credit. And if we don’t? Then who cares. We’ll move on.” Gibson instilled an us-againstthem mindset from the first day of spring training, telling his players to become their own experts, let their hard work and play on the field dictate where the team was headed, not where the prognosticators said they would go.

Lake in the southern Oregon Cascades to its west end at Swiftwater Park, 22 miles east of Roseburg. The path follows the North Umpqua River as it roars through the lush Umpqua National Forest of southwest Oregon. Because the trail is a relatively long drive from Bend, I’ve been traveling there just once a year to conquer different segments each time. The trail is divided into 11 segments, varying from 3.5 to 15.7 miles in length. See Umpqua / D5

Storm knock off Cougars in battle of 5A contenders Bulletin staff report In what could be a Class 5A state volleyball final preview, Summit High knocked off crosstown foe Mountain View 25-18, 27-25, 25-18 on Thursday in both teams’ 5A Intermountain Conference opener. Storm setter Nicole Ruttke led Summit at the service line, recording with two aces. “She had a solid night,” Storm coach Jill Waskom said about Ruttke. Gabby Crowell posted a match-high 15 kills for Summit, and teammates Laney Hayes and Hannah Harrer recorded seven kills apiece. The Storm’s Courtney Langer also contributed three blocks in the match at Summit High that pitted 5A’s No. 1 (Summit) and No. 2 (Mountain View)

ranked teams, based on the Oregon School Activities Association’s power rankings. Waskom said her team could have been a little more aggressive, “but to walk out with three games and a win felt great.” Cougar middle blocker Jill Roshak logged eight kills to lead the Mountain View offense, while Hannah Steria paced the defense with nine digs. “It was a hard-fought match,” Cougars coach Jill McKae said. “Our girls challenged (Summit) and worked hard.” Mountain View and Summit are both back on the court Saturday, as both teams are expected to play at the South Albany State Preview tournament.

With eye on clock, NBA owners, players seek deal By Brian Mahoney The Associated Press

NEW YORK — They don’t have a deal yet, and they are just about out of time. After some two years of on-and-off negotiations, that’s about all NBA players and owners agree on. The gaps in their financial proposals have been so great that they sometimes decide it’s best to just talk about something else. Now they have to figure it out quickly. Without at least getting very close to the framework of a new collective bargaining agreement this weekend, hopes of the 2011-12 season starting on time would be all but lost. “We realize that the calendar, the clock, the watch, whatever you want to say, is running out in terms of starting our regular season on time. So we’re going to try to get some things done this weekend and see what we can do,” said the Lakers’ Derek Fisher, president of the players association. The owners’ labor relations committee and the union’s executive committee — perhaps joined by some All-Stars — will meet today and have committed to keep talking throughout the weekend. Both sides have cautioned that bringing back the large groups after a series of discussions among smaller parties doesn’t mean they are close, but rather that more voices are required to consider the crucial decisions. There are 11 owners and nine players on the

BASKETBALL committees, including All-Star Chris Paul, who may try to bring along friends such as Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James who are scheduled to join him Saturday in a charity game in his hometown of Winston-Salem, N.C. It’s doubtful the presence of the superstars makes much impact — Anthony acknowledged this week that “we really don’t know how powerful we are at this moment” — but opening up the room beyond the top negotiators has backfired before. Talks broke down last time the large groups were together on Sept. 13, but Commissioner David Stern said he and union executive director Billy Hunter believe it’s necessary to summon them again with the Nov. 1 opener at stake. “If we’re at a period of enormous opportunity and great risk, the larger the group that is assembled to focus on that, the better from my perspective,” Stern said. “And I think Billy and I are on the same page on this.” They aren’t, though, on major salary and system issues. Owners are seeking a more restrictive salary cap system, while the players favor the current one that allows teams to exceed it through use of certain exceptions. Players fear a harder cap system would eliminate fully guaranteed

contracts for all but the top players. And that may be the easier one. Owners want a significant reduction in the players’ guarantee of basketball-related income, which was 57 percent in the previous deal. Players proposed lowering it to 54.3 percent before the lockout began July 1, though Hunter indicated this summer they were prepared to go lower if owners would agree to leave the cap system untouched. Union officials have said the league’s proposals would have them in the mid-40s. Each percentage point equates to at least $30 million. Players totaled $2.1 billion in salaries and benefits earned this season. “We just haven’t been able to get to a space, at least the formal proposals that have been on the table, get us to place where we can agree on a deal at this point,” Fisher said. “And so economically, we’ve tried to kind of leave that one floating and deal with some system issues and see what we can carve out there, but we’re working at it.” Hunter has said players have instructed union leadership that they would rather sit out than accept a bad deal. But Stern has warned that offers will only get worse once games are missed, which he seemed to be alluding to Wednesday when he said without progress in the upcoming talks “then it won’t be a question of just starting the season on time, it will be a lot at risk because of the absence of progress.”

Football • Graham leads Pittsburgh past No. 16 USF: Ray Graham rushed for 226 yards and two touchdowns and Pittsburgh dominated No. 16 South Florida 44-14 in Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Graham’s 13-yard touchdown gave Pitt (3-2, 1-0 Big East) the lead for good late in the first half and his 8-yard sprint up the middle early in the fourth quarter sealed it as the Panthers broke a fivegame losing streak against ranked opponents. Pitt kept USF’s BJ Daniels under wraps all night. Daniels ran for 43 yards — almost all of it coming on a last-gasp drive — and completed 18 of 36 passes for 223 mostly ineffective yards. Tino Sunseri threw for 216 yards and a score for the Panthers, who avoided a second-half meltdown for a third straight week and instead poured it on against the sloppy, inconsistent Bulls (4-1, 0-1). • Congress wants to talk HGH with NFL: Congress is stepping up its efforts to push the NFL and its players toward an agreement on testing for human growth hormone. In letters obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday, leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee invited NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFPLA executive director DeMaurice Smith and the chief executive of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to a meeting on Capitol Hill. Blood testing for HGH was part of the collective bargaining deal struck between the league and players this summer — but only if the union agreed to the methods. • Tennessee AD says SEC will expand beyond 13 teams: Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart says the Southeastern Conference will expand again and officials at each school need to have a number of frank discussions before moving forward. The addition of Texas A&M as the SEC’s 13th team was a good one, Hart said, but the league’s leaders must take their next steps deliberately. “I think a lot of the conversation is just where we go from here, obviously, because at some point 13 will not be the number,” Hart told The Associated Press. “There are a multitude of components to this that we have yet to really delve into. We will do that in relatively short order, but it’s very complex in nature.” The SEC announced Sunday that Texas A&M will join the conference in July after leaving the Big 12. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said later in the week that the league’s presidents and chancellors are not currently considering any other schools for admission and that he anticipates having no additional members for the 2012-13 season. • Colts QB Collins still out: The Colts are preparing as though Curtis Painter will be their starting quarterback at Tampa Bay on Monday. Kerry Collins is still recovering after suffering concussion-like symptoms Sunday against Pittsburgh, and his status remains in doubt. That means the Colts are getting Painter ready for what would be his first NFL start. Indy signed quarterback Dan Orlovsky to the active roster on Wednesday to provide depth. Peyton Manning isn’t expected to return until November or December as he recovers from neck surgery.

Golf • Johnson not bitter after losing caddie to Woods: Dustin Johnson doesn’t begrudge Tiger Woods for hiring his caddie, saying such decisions are part of the business of golf. Joe LaCava left Johnson on Sunday to become Woods’ third full-time caddie. “I spoke to Tiger about it. There’s no hard feelings at all,” Johnson said Thursday after shooting a 1-under 71 in the first round of the Dunhill Links Championship. “We had a great conversation. He just did what he did.” LaCava was the longtime caddie for Fred Couples but joined Johnson this summer. Johnson, one of the most talented American players, was looking for a caddie. Johnson won The Barclays last month with LaCava on the bag.

Baseball • MLB attendance up by under 1 percent: Another sellout at AT&T Park, a fine showing at Petco Park and a nice send-off at Sun Life Stadium. In a season full of comebacks, Major League Baseball attendance also rallied. MLB’s average attendance rose by about half of 1 percent this year, ending three straight seasons of drops. The World Series champion San Francisco Giants sold out every home game this year and drew rousing ovations in their wrapup Wednesday. San Diego drew more than 32,000 fans to Petco for the season finale against the Cubs, while Florida attracted 34,615 in the final game at Sun Life before moving into a new ballpark next year. The NL East champion Philadelphia Phillies led baseball’s attendance chart for the first time, drawing 3,680,718 fans. The Phillies have had 204 straight regular-season sellouts at Citizens Bank Park — Boston has sold out 712 straight games at Fenway Park. The overall attendance of 73,425,568 this year was the fifth-highest in MLB history. • Manager Acta’s option picked up by Indians: The Cleveland Indians have picked up manager Manny Acta’s contract option for 2013. Acta kept the Indians in contention for much of this season before injuries overwhelmed the young club, which finished second in the AL Central. Cleveland went 80-82, an 11-game improvement over last season. Acta was signed through 2012, and the Indians rewarded him by exercising the option for 2013. He’s 149-175 in two seasons with Cleveland. “I’m very happy that I know I will be here for at least two years,” Acta said. “This is a place I want to be.” Acta was hired following the 2009 season. He also was a candidate for the Houston job at the time but thought the Indians were closer to winning.

Basketball • Pistons’ Wallace arrested for drunken driving: Authorities in suburban Detroit say Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace has been charged with drunken driving and unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon, after a traffic stop. Bloomfield Township police said Thursday that the 37-year-old Wallace was arrested about 3 a.m. Saturday after officers observed a Cadillac Escalade being driven erratically. Police said they found an unloaded pistol in a backpack. Officers say Wallace was given a blood-alcohol test and he was above Michigan’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Motor sports • Indy 500 winner arrested for DWI: Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Al Unser Jr. was arrested early Thursday morning on charges of drunken driving and reckless driving in New Mexico after authorities said he was driving more than 100 mph, officials at the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department said. Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jennifer Brown confirmed that Unser, 49, was arrested around 3 a.m. just outside of Albuquerque, where he lives. Brown said Unser was drag racing another car in his Suburban and was going around 101 mph before sheriff’s deputies caught up to him. He was charged with reckless driving and aggravated driving while intoxicated. — From wire reports

D4 Friday, September 30, 2011 • THE BULLETIN



Don Ryan / The Associated Press

Oregon State running back Malcolm Agnew (35) is expected to suit up Saturday night when the Beavers play No. 25 Arizona State.

Freshman running back set to return for Oregon State The Associated Press CORVALLIS — The youth movement is on at Oregon State, and no one has bigger shoes to fill than Malcolm Agnew. The true freshman tailback is the heir apparent to former Beaver Jacquizz Rodgers, who moved on to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons this year after three seasons as the focal point of the Oregon State offense. Agnew rushed for 223 yards in his debut, the Beavers’ season-opening loss to Sacramento State. However, he pulled his hamstring three days later in practice and has missed the past two games. The Chesterfield, Mo., native was cleared to practice Tuesday and is expected to suit up when the Beavers go looking for their first win of the season Saturday night at No. 25 Arizona State (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12). “I am feeling pretty good,” Agnew said. “I’m about 90 to 95 percent. Throughout the week of practice I should keep progressing and getting better.” In Agnew’s absence, the Beavers have struggled running the ball, gaining just 23 yards on the ground at Wisconsin and 88 against UCLA. During those two games the Beavers have employed a committee of backs, including freshman Terron Ward, sophomore Jovan Stevenson and junior Jordan Jenkins, and none of the three has been consistently effective. Oregon State coach Mike Riley suggested some of the blame for that lies with an inconsistent line. Offensive tackle Mike Remmers agreed there have been problems with run blocking. “It’s always seemed like we’re just one guy short or one thing went wrong and ruined the whole play for us,” he said. “We’re working really hard to get everyone on the same page and get it put together.” At 5-foot-8 and 188 pounds, Agnew has a similar build to Rodgers, and his 33 carries against Sacramento State suggest he has the endurance to be a featured back. The question is whether his legs have the durabil-

ity. Agnew suffered multiple hamstring injuries in high school, including one that cut short his senior season. He said Tuesday that his recent injury may have been related to scar tissue remaining from his previous injuries, and that doctors have used lasers to treat it. “I don’t know what it does,” he said. “But it works.” Riley decided to be cautious with Agnew, holding him out against UCLA even though Agnew said he wanted to play. Agnew acknowledged that his hamstring is likely to be in the back of his mind when he steps on to the field. “I am just looking forward to that one time where I’m not thinking about it, so I can say, ‘It’s OK. I’m ready to go,’ ” he said. “Once I get that, I’ll be good.” The Beavers (0-3, 0-1 Pac-12) have played 17 first-time starters this season. Several other freshmen have already been staples of the Beaver rotation, including defensive ends Scott Crichton and Dylan Wynn, cornerback Rashaad Reynolds, safety Ryan Murphy, receiver Brandin Cooks, and Sean Mannion, who has supplanted 2010 starter Ryan Katz at quarterback. Agnew has the weight of expectations on him. Rodgers, who rushed for 3,877 yards and scored 51 touchdowns in his career, was one of the greatest players in Oregon State history, along with predecessors Ken Simonton, Steven Jackson and Yvenson Bernard. Agnew’s breakout performance in his first-ever game set the bar pretty high, and he has anxious Beaver fans awaiting his return. Agnew has genuinely seemed unconcerned about that, saying he is simply excited to play again Saturday because the game is on TV and it’s his first road game. He noted that Arizona State is very good, and said there is no sense in dwelling on Oregon State’s slow start. “Our heads are up,” he said. “We’re still working hard and working toward our goals.”

Fall Tour Continued from D1 The Fall Tour, an annual event in the PGA of America’s Oregon chapter, is hosted by four different Central Oregon golf courses. The tournament is split into a pair of two-round events and includes club professionals and amateurs. Cash prizes are awarded for the lowest rounds each day, lowest two-day totals, team competitions and other contests. And the final two days of the tournament were kind to Central Oregon pros. Bend’s Brandon Kearney and Terrebonne’s Scott Cravens joined Fought in the two-day top five. Fought earned $900 for his two-day win and his secondplace final-round finish. Kearney, a golf pro at Bend Golf and Country Club, shot a 7-under 65 to card the low professional round Thursday. He earned $825 for the best round and finishing third in the two-day tally. Kearney, who has played sparingly since injuring his wrist earlier this year, shot his

best competitive round of the season even though he still limits warm-ups and practice time to protect his injury. “I am just happy to be back playing,” said Kearney, who will increase the number of events he will play this fall and winter to make up for the lost time. “We’ll see what the winter brings and how healthy I am,” Kearney added. A Portland amateur actually upstaged the pros Thursday. Moose Adams — a former minor league baseball player who was a star on the famed 1982 Little League World Series championship team from Kirkland, Wash. — shot an 8under 64. Adams, a 41-year-old former assistant golf pro, said it was his best competitive round. It was the final act in an impressive week for Adams, who scored the lowest amateur round and led his team to wins in three of the Fall Tour’s four rounds. How does his 64 compare with his other athletic exploits? “You can’t put anything up against winning the Little

League World Series,” said Adams, whose team included his friend, Greens at Redmond pro Craig Melott. “Shooting a 64 with friends at the Fall Tour has a different level of priceless.” Fought, a former BYU golfer in the 1970s, will be trying for an impressive feat himself next week. The Senior PGA Professional National Championship — hosted by Creighton Farms in Aldie, Va., and River Creek Club in Leesburg, Va. — will attract 264 of the best club pros age 50 and older from around the nation. The top 35 finishers in the tournament earn a berth in the 73rd Senior PGA Championship in 2012. And getting his game in tune at the Fall Tour was a welcome confidence booster, Fought said. “It’s going to be fun,” Fought said of the Senior PGA national championship. “I’m just going to go back and work hard on my golf and see what I can do.” Zack Hall can be reached at 541-617-7868 or at zhall@

Continued from D1 It couldn’t have worked out too much better. Predicted to be headed toward another so-so year after a pair of 90-loss seasons, the Diamondbacks were one of the surprises of baseball, earning their first NL West title since 2007 on their way to winning 94 games. Now, the team that had so few preseason expectations — even by some within the organization — is headed to the playoffs, opening the NLDS on Saturday at Milwaukee with ace Ian Kennedy facing Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo. “The guys love it that way, flying under the radar so to speak,” said second baseman Aaron Hill, who came over to Arizona with shortstop John McDonald in a midseason trade with Toronto. “It’s been like that all year. The guys talked about how bad of a spring training it was and maybe they didn’t believe it was going to be this good, but at the same time they did all the little things right, kept grinding it out and never quit,

and now we’re where we’re at.” That never-quit attitude, one fostered by Gibson, is a big reason Arizona got here. Making the cliché of one pitch at a time their mantra for the season, the Diamondbacks were the masters of the comeback, rallying from behind to win 48 times. Arizona’s most improbable comeback win came in the penultimate game, when the Diamondbacks allowed five runs in the top of the 10th inning against the Dodgers and scored six in the bottom half, winning it 7-6 on Ryan Roberts’ grand slam and Gibsonesque fist pump around the bases. Arizona nearly did it again in Wednesday’s season finale, getting a grand slam from Cole Gillespie and a solo shot by Henry Blanco in the ninth inning before falling 7-5. “It has been pretty interesting that it hasn’t been one guy carrying the entire team — it could be anybody on a nightly basis,” Hill said. “I think that’s a reason for a lot of their success.” That and an everybody-gets-aturn approach. Playing with the confidence of a team instead of a group of

individuals, the Diamondbacks spent the season as if they were on a hero carousel, getting regular contributions by players like Kennedy and Justin Upton to go with plug-into-the-lineup chip-ins by rookies like Collin Cowgill and Gillespie. Gibson cultivated that approach, too, making sure everyone was ready to play every day by juggling his lineup and not telling guys they were playing until the day of the game. “Just grinding it out, continuing with each pitch, that seems to be what we’ve done to the last out and what we’re going to continue to do,” Diamondbacks reliever Micah Owings said. It still hasn’t earned Arizona much respect. After spending most of the regular season as the underdogs, the Diamondbacks again are the team nobody is banking on, their odds of winning the World Series at 14-to-1 or worse, in the longshot category well behind the frontrunning Yankees and Phillies. Not that anyone in Arizona is complaining, particularly Gibson. “It’s a good position to be in,” he said.

Division series, at a glance A look at division series for the National League and American League, which start this weekend:

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Milwaukee Brewers Rotation: Edge, Brewers. Arizona ace Ian Kennedy has had the best season, but Milwaukee’s rotation is much deeper with Zack Greinke, Shaun Marcum and Randy Wolf behind Yovani Gallardo. That group helped the Brewers give up fewer runs in the second half of the season than any other playoff team — an impressive feat based in hitter-friendly Miller Park. Daniel Hudson, traded from the White Sox to Arizona, won 16 games in his first full season but lost his past three starts. Bullpen: Brewers. Francisco Rodriguez wishes he was still getting save chances, but he and John Axford (46 for 48) have given Milwaukee a terrific bullpen since Rodriguez was acquired in a July trade. Takashi Saito, LaTroy Hawkins and Kameron Loe are solid in front of them, but there’s no reliable lefty in the mix. Overhauled by general manager Kevin Towers, the Diamondbacks’ pen has gone from overwhelming weakness to a solid piece of the team. Closer J.J. Putz (45 for 49 in saves) is the key, but newcomer Brad Ziegler, David Hernandez and lefty Joe Paterson are big pieces. Hitting: Brewers. How do you not like a team with two MVP candidates in the middle of the lineup? Shutting down Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun is a big concern for Arizona, but the Brewers know they also need big hits from guys like Corey Hart, Rickie Weeks and Nyjer Morgan. Arizona is counting on Justin Upton and Miguel Montero to make things easier for newcomers like Paul Goldschmidt and Ryan Roberts. Aaron Hill has been a major upgrade at second base. Fielding: Diamondbacks. There’s not much difference between these teams, but Milwaukee’s middle-infield (Weeks and Yuniesky Betancourt) can be a mistake waiting to happen. Upton has a cannon but is prone to becoming overaggressive and making mistakes. Bench: Brewers. Talk about experience. Milwaukee’s bench includes Craig Counsell, hero of the 1997 playoffs for Florida, alongside Mark Kotsay and Jerry Hairston Jr. The journeyman Sean Burroughs is the most-used reserve for Arizona. Manager: Diamondbacks. Both Kirk Gibson and Ron Roenicke are taking their teams to the playoffs in their first full seasons as managers. But this is the first time that Roenicke will be in such a high-tension situation. Gibson knows about big moments. Gut read: Home-field advantage figures to be huge for the Brewers, who are 5724 at Miller Park. Gallardo and Greinke, the Games 1-2 starters, thrive there. Pick: Brewers in 4.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees

Rotation: Edge, Phillies. The addition of Cliff Lee has made Philadelphia’s rotation the best in the majors, with Lee, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt lined up to follow ace Roy Halladay. Factor in Lee’s ability to raise his game in October, and the 2011 Phillies have one of the toughest postseason rotations ever. The Cardinals’ starting pitching hasn’t been as strong as the names suggest it should have been but has gotten a big lift from Edwin Jackson, acquired from the White Sox in late July. Bullpen: Phillies. Brad Lidge finished strong, but Ryan Madson has been the Phillies’ most valuable reliever. The bullpen could also get a lift from Joe Blanton and Vance Worley, who aren’t needed in the rotation. The St. Louis bullpen is an exposed weakness despite late-season trades to add Octavio Dotel and lefty Marc Rzepczynski, whose arms must be hanging by threads. Hitting: Cardinals. Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman are killers in the middle order, making it less significant that Matt Holliday continues to be limited by a torn tendon in his right middle finger. The Cardinals have outscored the other NL playoff teams despite center fielder Jon Jay being the only regular to play 150plus games. The Phillies have big-name hitters and have been more productive since adding Hunter Pence at the trade deadline but are something of a paper lion. They don’t get runners on or hit home runs at the same pace as the other three NL playoff teams. Fielding: Phillies. Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley are a modern Alan Trammell-and-Lou Whitaker combination. That’s the biggest reason the Phillies almost never beat themselves. The Cardinals have allowed 84 unearned runs, most in the playoffs, but improved when Rafael Furcal took over shortstop from Ryan Theriot. Bench: Phillies. Veteran Ross Gload remains one of the most-used pinch hitters in the majors. Raul Ibanez and John Mayberry Jr. share left, so there’s always a strong part on the bench. The Cardinals have had to use a lot of players this season, giving Tony La Russa a great read on what his bench guys can do. Manager: Phillies. This is no knock on La Russa, but Charlie Manuel has had a great feel for his team through a five-year playoff run. The Phillies have gone 25-13 the past three Octobers. This series is blessed with two of the best managers — country-smart vs. a brainiac in spikes. Gut read: The Phillies’ rested, focused starters should not make much of a difference. The Cardinals don’t have enough pitching to expose the overrated nature of Ryan Howard and Philadelphia’s lineup. Pick: Phillies in 3.

Rotation: Edge, Tigers. Justin Verlander, an MVP candidate and Cy Young favorite, is the most important guy among the 200 on playoff rosters. He’s got to beat CC Sabathia in Game 1 to keep this series interesting. The Yankees will go with a three-man rotation that has Ivan Nova, and A.J. Burnett, Bartolo Colon or Freddy Garcia behind Sabathia. Sabathia-Nova is a better one-two punch than was Sabathia-Burnett a year ago. The Tigers are deeper with newcomer Doug Fister alongside Max Scherzer and possibly Rick Porcello, if Jim Leyland uses four starters. Bullpen: Yankees. Mariano Rivera has the save record for the playoffs and regular season, and the cast behind him is relatively deep with Rafael Soriano and David Robertson. Until the eighth inning against Tampa Bay, Luis Ayala also had a head of steam. The Tigers’ Jose Valverde was a perfect 49 for 49 in saves. Hitting: Yankees. Miguel Cabrera could be a big factor for the Tigers, but the Yankees’ lineup is deeper and more dangerous, in part because Curtis Granderson has helped them lead the majors in homers. The Yankees have power, speed and all the big names, along with dangerous rookie Jesus Montero. The Tigers’ Victor Martinez is making it tough to pitch around Cabrera, and Delmon Young has been a welcome addition. The Tigers ended the year on a roll, averaging 6.3 runs in their past 16 games. Fielding: Yankees. Derek Jeter has won five Gold Gloves. Granderson and Mark Teixeira play Gold Glove-caliber defense, and the Yankees really play well together, limiting unearned runs. The Tigers’ Alex Avila is tough to run on, but his teammates are prone to costly mistakes. Bench: Yankees. Nice collection of veterans on the Yankees with Andruw Jones, Eric Chavez and Jorge Posada, and speed in Ramiro Pena. The Tigers have two versatile players in Ryan Raburn and Don Kelly. Manager: Yankees. Both Jim Leyland and Joe Girardi have managed in the National League, and aren’t afraid to take some chances. Girardi works a little harder trying to manufacture runs, doing a little more to force opponents to be on their toes. Gut read: The Yankees should be good enough to win even if Verlander neutralizes Sabathia. The Yankees should score a lot of runs when someone other than Verlander is on the mound. Pick: Yankees in 4.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Texas Rangers Rotation: Edge, Rangers. These are the deepest AL rotations, and Texas gets an edge because its guys are fresher and lined up while the Rays figure things out on the fly after securing a playoff spot late Wednesday night. C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis have been fixtures in a constantly changing Texas rotation. Derek Holland, Texas’ Game 2 starter, has thrown four shutouts this season but can go bad in a heartbeat. The Rays have six talented starters, including September addition Matt Moore, but are set to lean heaviest on Wade Davis, who had a 5.08 ERA in his last six starts. Bullpen: Rays. A strength for the Rangers a year ago, the bullpen is an unknown for Texas this season even after Mike Adams, Koji Uehara and Mike Gonzalez were added late. Regularseason starter Alexi Ogando could play a bigger role than any of those guys. The Rays lost an entire bullpen to free agency last winter, including 2010 AL saves leader Rafael Soriano, but have done remarkably well this season with Kyle Farnsworth and Joel Peralta as anchors. Farnsworth, a part of Florida’s eight-run eighth against the Cubs in 2003, isn’t known for grace under pressure, however. Hitting: Rangers. Only the Yankees have outscored Texas among the playoff teams, and at full strength the Rangers might be better. They missed Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz for long stretches. Ian Kinsler and Michael Young have been constants. The Rays scored the fewest runs among the eight playoff teams. Don’t be surprised if the Rangers pitch around Evan Longoria, who was a second-half terror. Fielding: Rays. Texas is sacrificing defense by playing Hamilton in center, next to gimpy-legged right fielder Cruz. But Elvis Andrus and Beltre are terrific on the left side of the infield. The steady Rays have allowed fewer unearned runs than any of the AL playoff teams. Bench: Rangers. Dan Johnson can hit dramatic home runs. But Texas has a deeper roster, with .300 hitters Mike Napoli and Endy Chavez and speedster Craig Gentry (18 for 18 in stolenbase tries) available. Manager: Texas. Ron Washington sets a terrific tone for October, keeping his players relaxed and the opposing manager confused as he goes against the book. Joe Maddon was a step behind when these teams met in the first round a year ago. Gut read: The Rays won both of their games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington last October, which will give them a comfortable feel at the start of the series. But Texas has a better lineup and an ace on a roll (Wilson). Pick: Rangers in 5. — McClatchy-Tribune News Service


THE BULLETIN • Friday, September 30, 2011 D5

Umpqua Continued from D1 This year, my third consecutive year visiting the North Umpqua Trail, I took on the Marsters, Calf and Panther segments of the trail. These sections make up about 12 miles of the middle to western portion of the North Umpqua Trail. My original plan was to ride the Jessie Wright section (just west of the Marsters segment) to the Calf section, but because of construction on the Soda Springs Dam, the Soda Springs Trailhead and most of the Jessie Wright segment are closed through Nov. 25, 2012. Fortunately for me, that part of the trail constitutes just four of the 79 miles. When I was there Tuesday, a cloudy day in Douglas County, I merely shifted my starting point west a few miles and drove to the Marsters Trailhead. After surviving the Dread and Terror segment of the North Umpqua last year, I was eager to ride a more tame portion of the trail. The Dread and Terror is one of the most technically challenging sections of trail I have ever ridden — it features endless rocky sections, steep climbs and frightening drop-offs. The three segments I rode on Tuesday included much of the same type of trail, but not as extreme. I was expecting a smooth ribbon of wet dirt along the river, and while that adequately describes some of the trail, much of it was steep and rock-strewn. A full-suspension mountain bike to absorb the rough trail is highly recommended. The Marsters Trailhead of the North Umpqua Trail is located near the Weeping Rocks Spawning Beds. From September through November each year, adult chinook salmon return to that spot from the Pacific Ocean to spawn. After observing the dark salmon in the blue river, I hopped on my mountain bike and was soon riding through a grove of old-growth Douglas fir. According to signs at the trailhead, some massive trees in the grove are more than 800 years old and measure 5 to 7 feet in diameter. I climbed above the river, past moss-covered rocks and along hairpin turns on the cliff side. Soon, the river was hundreds of feet below me as I pedaled through the fern-dotted forest. Because the North Umpqua Trail continuously runs up and down through creek drainages, the amount of flat trail is minimal. I was constantly chugging up steep climbs, followed immediately by equally steep descents. The short, precipitous climbs are particularly challenging because of their frequency, and because the trail is often covered with rocks in those sections. After about 40 minutes, I made it to the Calf Trailhead. That section of trail began with a fast descent, sending me into the burn area of the 17,000-acre Apple Fire of 2002. The river stopped the fire from spreading farther north, according to trailhead signs. Giant blackened tree stumps rose from the ground near the rushing river as I continued to negotiate the tricky trail. Soon thereafter, I found myself at the Panther Trailhead. By then, I had ridden for an hour and a half, and I was already beginning to feel exhausted. I decided to ride just a portion of the Panther segment, which cuts through lush, green vegetation. The first part of the path was a long climb, but the makeup of the trail was a welcome sight: mostly dirt with few rocks. At the end of the climb, I decided to turn around and head back to

the car the way I had come. I flew back down the Panther section, then maneuvered my way back along the rocks and short climbs of the Calf and Marsters segments. By the time I returned to the Marsters Trailhead, I was spent. The out-and-back ride of about 18 miles took me 3 hours, 40 minutes. Construction on the North Umpqua Trail began in 1978 and was completed in 1997 through the cooperative efforts of volunteers, the Umpqua National Forest, the Roseburg District Bureau of Land Management and the Douglas County Parks Department. The trail is a well-maintained jewel of the Cascades and a testament to what government agencies can accomplish when they work together. I plan to return as soon as next summer. I have five more sections — 37 miles — of the North Umpqua Trail yet to ride. Mark Morical can be reached at 541-383-0318 or at mmorical@

For simplicity’s sake, let’s call me a childless spinster. When my younger brother and his wife announced their first pregnancy, I — then in my mid-30s — listened hopefully for that famous tick-tock, and when it didn’t sound, slunk back to my familiar unknown. My indecision, I was forced to accept, was fast reaching its expiration date. And then on a bright March afternoon I entered a hushed delivery room, and my brother handed me a small white bundle, and I felt something, not maternal exactly, but decidedly formidable: a primal pull, a plummet. It was my niece, Sophie, 2 hours old. That was 3½ years ago. Ever since, I’ve been going around telling people that Sophie is my most passionate relationship. I play it as a rueful quip about the state of my romantic life, but in truth, I’m deadly serious. When I’m low, I scroll through the latest batch of digital photos sent by her mother and sit back as my brain floods with endorphins. A real-life visit, when Sophie leaps into my arms, presses her tiny cheek against mine and won’t let go, is an endorphin tsunami. Later, when she starts shrieking in tongues and throwing handfuls of pennies across the room, her parents whisk her off to bed and I settle down with a novel. In June, the Pew Research Center reported that nearly one in five American women in her early 40s has never had a child — compared with one in 10 in the 1970s. I suspect the Census Bureau doesn’t have a line tallying the current aunt population. But it stands to reason that as women marry and have children later, if at all, they have more time to enjoy being an aunt. How many of these single, childless women wonder, as I have, if being an aunt beats being a mother? Certainly the aunt’s public image is far more appealing than that of the modern “mommy,” that bedraggled, desexualized creature forced to spend her disposable income on mammoth strollers or careen about in “I Don’t Know How She Does It” fashion.

Time to talk Speech delay among toddlers doesn’t necessarily mean something is wrong By Alandra Johnson The Bulletin

ormal development for babies and toddlers fits into a fairly loose timeline. Some babies start walking at 9 months old, while others don’t take their first steps until 15 months. Yet both are right on track. On the other hand, if kids don’t hit certain developmental milestones by a certain age, it can be a sign of serious issues such as autism or other special needs. It’s a tricky balance for parents to know when to relax and when to worry. Inside So the question is: When Signs there does a missing skill become may be a the sign of something wrong? problem, Depending on who you Page E6 listen to, the answers can vary — especially when it comes to speech delays. Bend mom Stephanie Utzman, who has two sons who experienced speech delays, said, “There is so much conflicting advice, the only thing (I could) rely on was my intuition.”


Conflicting information Having a child who doesn’t talk can be worrisome for parents, but one recent piece of news may have soothed some fears about so-called late talkers. A study that appeared in the American Academy of Pediatrics journal Pediatrics this summer attracted a lot of attention in the speech therapy world. Researchers showed that 2-yearolds who were experiencing significant speech delays did not experience any adverse effects by age 6. Many of these late talkers simply needed more time to catch up and did not experience any lasting behavioral or emotional problems. See Speech / E6

There’s more to fatherhood than using your wallet By Armin Brott McClatchy-Tribune News Service


I have a 13-year-old daughter. I was never married to her mother. But recently the mom got married to someone else, had another child, and moved away, taking my daughter with her. Do I still have to pay child support even though she’s married and has full custody of my daughter? There are a number of factors at play here. However, what surprises me most about your question is that you seem to be focusing on the finances rather than on the fact that your daughter is now living in another state and you don’t get to see her. Doesn’t that bother you? Most guys would be investigating whether the mother has violated a court order by moving the girl away without an agreement between the parents, or figuring out how to see their child more often. That said, you do raise some interesting financial questions. See Mr. Dad / E3

Second chance at romance fraught with consequences Dear Abby: I’m a 50-year-old female, married 26 years, with three grown children. When I was 16, I dated a guy, “Oliver,” I cared for very much. We got along, never argued and were very close. The attachment we had I have never experienced since. Months after we broke up, my mom told me that because we were of different races, she had called Oliver’s parents and told them to keep him away from me because we were getting too close. We both moved on, but through the years I have thought of him often. Sixteen months ago, I found him online. He lives a half-hour away, has two teenagers and is unhappy in his marriage. We spoke on the phone or online for a year. Over the last few months we have been meeting at a nearby park. Our connection is still there. We are soul mates and no longer want to be without each other. And no, we have NOT had sex. My husband has been good to me. I love him, but I’m not “in love” with him. I am torn between staying with my husband to honor the commitment to my family, or following my heart with Oliver. I’m in love with him and don’t want to lose him a second time. — Another Chance in California Dear Chance: You say you’re torn between your commitment to your family or following your heart. But what about Oliver’s commitment to HIS family? Although your children are grown, his aren’t. They still need a father at home.

‘Hung’ star says she ‘just got lucky’ By Luaine Lee



McClatchy-Tribune News Service

PASADENA, Calif. — Ask actress Jane Adams how she landed in HBO’s modern fable “Hung” and she has no idea. Unlike most actresses, Adams doesn’t take credit for any of it. “More and more in life I don’t think I did anything,” she said. “Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of a collective unconscious. And I always felt like movies and plays and theater and television was reflecting back — at best — is reflecting back life. “Why is that moving people has always fascinated me. I would say I don’t know why I’m doing this, I never did.” She dropped out of two schools before she landed at Juilliard. The first was an acting institute in Seattle. “I finished a year of it. And I was too afraid to be an artist. I said, ‘I can’t do this.’ I said, ‘I don’t see how this is going to work out. I’m going to go to the University of Washington and study political science.’ “So I did that and pledged a sorority even, and I thought, ‘OK, I’m going to do this.’ And it lasted three months ...” She doesn’t even take credit for earning one of her first theater roles. “You never know where you’re going to find a mentor,” said Adams. “One of my sorority sisters, this great girl, helped me learn my lines and get ready for an audition for a play in Seattle. And if she hadn’t been there to help ... it was 11 monologues and I was the Pentecostal snake handler,” she said. “My parents don’t do it. No one in my family did it. The closest I can come is it’s the opposite of saying I feel like I’ve been pushed, it’s more

two of you can decide. Dear Abby: I have a close friend, “Lindy,” who is dying from liver cancer. She could no longer eat or drink even before the chemo was started, and she sleeps most of the time. The chemo has done nothing more for her than make her lose her hair. Lindy is adamant that she’ll beat the cancer. To that end, she wants nothing “negative” passed on to outsiders, including her relatives who live eight hours away. She has no family here except her boyfriend, whom she won’t allow to talk to her doctor. He refuses to go against her wishes. I am torn between being loyal to my friend’s belief that she’ll get better, or notifying her family about how sick she really is so they can visit her before she passes. If they come, Lindy will be furious (if she’s still coherent). But if they don’t have the opportunity, it will be unfair to them. My heart tells me to call Lindy’s family and tell them to consider a visit sooner rather than later. What do you think? — Caught in the Middle Dear In The Middle: I think that if Lindy were as close to her family as you imagine, they would have some inkling that she’s ill. That you are aware of her illness shows how much she trusts you and cares for you. The people who are most important to her know about her condition, so please respect her wishes.

I could’ve been working more, I think, if I’d known how to better navigate that. I was very impulsive. ‘Oh, I don’t like L.A. because I don’t understand this. Business things scare me so I’ll run back to New

York to do another play.’ Which, that’s maybe a good thing, but it wasn’t necessarily a choice.” She earned a variety of roles in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Happiness,” “Wonder Boys” and “Frasier,” before she landed the role of Tanya Skagle in “Hung.” Even so, she said, “I don’t think they’ve changed their attitude about me. I think I just got really lucky.”

Though she sees herself as passive in an active world, Adams has undertaken some courageous steps in her life. Nine years ago she stopped drinking and smoking pot. “It was meeting a couple people who’d done that, and were more themselves. It was inspiring. I was 37. They just made me aware of the cause-and-effect nature of that kind of thing. Believe me, it was not me. It was seeing other people. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I’m so smart I figured it out.’ It was nothing, it was just kind of revealed to me.” Then her mother became ill with cancer and died a month ago. “I think my mom’s illness didn’t change me as much as her recent death did. It significantly changed my outlook,” she said. “Holding my mother’s hand and watching her take her last breath and being with her for days while she was dying, that death process, I feel if I ever had a child I might encourage her and I’d talk about my experience. I get it now why parents would encourage someone young to be a candy striper or go into a hospital and see what’s going on.” She says she’s never married and isn’t eager to. “I’m not thinking I would like to, no. There was a time in my mid-30s where I thought I had to hurry up and do that thing. Now if I could talk to that woman I’d say, ‘Don’t worry about it. Go to Paris.” “Hung” begins its third season Oct. 2.

Mr. Dad Continued from E1 But before we go on, it’s important that you hire a lawyer. This situation is quite complicated and you need someone in your corner who has a lot of expertise in custody matters. An experienced attorney will be able to tell you about the child support rules in your state. Some states count a new spouse’s income when calculating support. Others don’t. Either way, in most states, there’s an inverse relationship between the amount of time the child is with the noncustodial parent

Kids can get a chance to ride in an early 20th-century freight wagon at the Harvest Festival at the High Desert Museum on Saturday.

and how much support is paid. Child support is supposed to be for the child’s benefit and is designed to help the custodial parent cover increased child-related expenses. Time your daughter spends with you would reduce her mother’s expenses because yours would be increased. Makes sense, right? Simply put, the less time your daughter is with you, the more you’ll owe. So if she’s with her mom 100 percent of the time, you’ll most likely be ordered to pay the max amount. The big question is, why don’t you want to pay? If you’re having financial troubles — and

you certainly wouldn’t be alone in this — your attorney should be able to get your support order reduced, at least temporarily. If you’re concerned that the mother is pocketing your support checks or spending them on non-child-related things, again, your lawyer may be able to get the support order modified so that you can put the money into a college savings account or other savings vehicle for your daughter. If you’re using financial leverage to punish or get back at your ex for something she did to you, stop right now. Whether you’re legally required to pay support or not, I think you have a moral

obligation. Does it really matter where your daughter lives or whether her mother now has enough money to pay for everything she needs? She’s your daughter and you should be doing everything you can to support her. If that means sending money, so be it. The one who gets hurt the most by you ducking your responsibility is your daughter, not her mother.

Continued from E1 Who is popular culture’s most popular aunt, the glamorously madcap Auntie Mame, if not Holly Golightly with crow’s feet? (Both heroines, as it happens, emerged nearly simultaneously in the late 1950s, each with a long and slender quellazaire between her fingers.) There are many less glamorous aunts, of course — Aunt Jemima, Auntie Em, Spider-Man’s Aunt May. But the eccentric and single socialite Mame Dennis, with her colorful wardrobe and ever-changing decors, best encapsulates the aura of self-sufficiency we like to assign to the role. The aunt exists outside the immediate family unit, ambassador to a universe of other options, as well as — crucially — a grown-up who isn’t an authority figure or disciplinarian. Why popular culture hasn’t coughed up a more recent specimen is a mystery to me, particularly given all the family-oriented shows currently on the air. You’d think “30 Rock” and “Mad Men” would deliver, but Liz Lemon and Joan Holloway only seem like aunts — at least thus far. I have a soft spot for Bart Simpson’s craggy old aunts, Marge’s identical twin sisters, Selma and Patty Bouvier, who live together at the Spinster City apartment complex, but they’re more like a cautionary tale, the kind of aunt I’ll become if I’m not careful. (Matt Groening once told TV Guide that the pair is meant to “suck the life out of everything they see.”)

Continued from E1 The researchers said some parents may want to take a “wait-and-see” approach for kids this young. “We certainly hope that the findings may (ease) some of the worries that parents have,” said researcher Andrew Whitehouse via e-mail. “Having a child who is not talking as much as other children can be very distressing for parents. Our findings suggest that parents should not be overly concerned that late-talking at age 2 years will result in enduring language and psychological difficulties for the child.” On the other hand, parents of late talkers may have also seen some public service announcements from Autism Speaks, a national organization dedicated to autism awareness and research. The ads encourage parents to seek help for kids who haven’t started talking by 16 months. Any parent who saw information from these sources might be rightfully confused. Not talking at 16 months is cause for concern, but not talking at 2 can be OK? Whether or not to seek an intervention depends, of course, on the child. Some may just need time to acquire language skills; others may be showing signs of some developmental delay.

The forgotten Several years ago, Robert Milardo, a University of Maine sociologist, noticed that aunts and uncles were also conspicuously absent in his academic field of family studies. “There is a curious disconnect between public discourse and lived experience,” he told me in a phone interview. “I trace it back to the 1950s, when certain social scientists started lamenting over the decline of the family. The culture picked up on that and accepted as fact that extended families are declining in importance, to the point of being almost nonexistent. Nothing could be further from the truth.” Last year, Milardo published the first comprehensive study of aunts and uncles, “The Forgotten Kin” (Cambridge University Press, 2010), in which he explains that parents’ siblings have the opportunity to wield a very specific influence on children. “Their knowledge is unique, and to a certain extent, unburdened by the conventional expectations held of parents,” he writes. “This may be especially true of childless aunts who are free to deviate from traditional views of mothering, domesticity, and femininity.” He cites a study participant who was especially fond of a single aunt who worked as a legislative assistant on Capitol Hill. “I was attracted to her because she was kind of magical and also because she was so independent,” she recalled. “Who knew a single woman?” I asked if he bought my theory that the appeal of the eccentric aunt has endured because it’s a way for parents, who might find her unconventionality threatening, to undermine her power by condescending to it. “No close relationship in this world doesn’t have conflict, and jealousy or doubt about roles could be one place where siblings have conflict,” he said. “Either that, or the opposite: By depicting aunts as eccentric, we’re exaggerating a quality that we find very important.” It was only upon the arrival of Niece No. 2, in August, that I crossed over to the dark side of aunt-dom. Whereas Sophie had been the first child ever born to humankind, conferring a gravitas to all present, including secondary relatives, Annie was the final link in a now-complete nuclear unit, and me a pushy bystander. This time I skulked around the hospital room like an overdressed wallflower — an overeager mistress. I’d worn a new green frock to impress Sophie, but she didn’t even notice.

The Utzmans Utzman knows a great deal about speech delays, having dealt with them with both of her sons. She knew from the beginning that her son Adler would need extra help. Born eight weeks premature, he had medical issues from the start. Adler never met the milestones for his age and was eventually diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a disorder that affects motor skills and muscles and can have other complications. Adler has a neurological disorder and a feeding issue. Utzman knew speech would be a tricky skill for Adler. He has been through speech therapy and was diagnosed with apraxia of speech, a specific motor speech disorder which means he has difficulty planning the movements required to speak. At 6, he couldn’t say any words. The now 8-year-old can say three words and is working on more. Jonah, on the other hand, appeared to be a typically developing infant and toddler. But speech eluded him. He wasn’t saying any words at 14 months; he still wasn’t talking at 18 months. Just now, at just over 2 years, he can say more than a dozen words, but is still far behind most kids his age. “My perspective was so skewed,” said Utzman, referring to her experience with Adler. “I had no perspective about what’s normal.” For a while, they thought “let’s just kind of see what happens.” Jonah was meeting all of his gross-motor-skill and cognitive milestones. He also underwent autism screenings during his well-baby visits and the pediatrician found no warning signs. “I always all along believed he was just going to be a late talker,” said Utzman. But when he was about 2 and still not saying any words, Utzman started to worry that she might have two nonverbal children. Around that time, Jonah was referred to Early Intervention, a publicly funded program that offers extra help for kids who have developmental delays. Utzman says the professionals who eval-

Stephanie Utzman holds her 2-year-old son, Jonah, next to her husband, Steve, and her 8-year-old son, Adler. Both of the Utzmans’ sons have experienced speech delays. uated him felt there was “nothing wrong with him,” he was just a late talker. Jonah is continuing to receive speech therapy services from EI and will do so until he catches up. “He’s on a roll now,” said Utzman, but is still “very delayed.” The goal is for him to be able to say 75 words and 10 two-word phrases. She feels the extra intervention can only help. She guesses Jonah’s delayed speech may have something to do with his brother. He sees Adler “doesn’t have to talk to get his needs met.” Utzman says knowing what to do — whether to wait or to take action — can be tricky. She suggests other parents learn about the wide range of typical development. “If their child appears to be delayed in speech but is otherwise developing normally, then adopting a ‘waitand-see’ approach may be more appropriate if it is something the parents are comfortable with. However, if there are signs of developmental delay, odd behavior traits or they even have a hunch something is not right, then absolutely seek intervention as early as possible,” said Utzman.

Case for intervention When toddlers don’t use words, it can be alarming. But, up to a point, this isn’t necessarily something to worry about unless accompanied by other missing milestones. Children in Whitehouse’s study — the kids who were late talkers who ended up doing just fine — didn’t have any other obvious developmental delays. They could communicate in other nonverbal ways, such as using gestures and eye contact. The same holds true for Jonah Utzman, a late talker who seems to be doing just fine.

“If their child appears to be delayed in speech but is otherwise developing normally, then adopting a ‘wait-andsee’ approach may be more appropriate if it is something the parents are comfortable with.” — Stephanie Utzman, mom of two boys with speech delays Bend speech and language pathologist Caroline Skidmore says she sees kids who are 2 and not talking, but they have a lot of other “pre-verbal” skills in place, such as gestures and pointing. “This kiddo may be a little slower, but they are going to come along.” In these cases she suggests monitoring the child and then gives the parents some things to work on at home. Other nonverbal 2-year-olds come in and cannot make eye contact, don’t gesture and don’t have other basic skills. These kids are the ones who end up diagnosed with autism or a speech/language delay. She says each parent deals with issues differently. Some may be hyper vigilant, others may wait a long time. Skidmore strongly encourages parents to seek out help if they have any concerns. A speech delay in a 2-year-old is a lot easier to work on than a delay in a 6-yearold. At that point, the delay can also cause social and emotional problems. “My job is so much more difficult. I wish I’d seen that kiddo at 2,” said Skidmore. She uses this analogy: It’s like when you have a really persistent cold. You finally decide to

go to the doctor — eight out of 10 times the doctor will probably tell you nothing is wrong and you just need to rest and wait. But in some cases you may have pneumonia. Alycia Halladay, director of environmental research for Austim Speaks, says parents should feel comfortable bringing any concern — no matter how trivial — to the attention of a health care provider. She understands some parents are fearful about a diagnosis, which is why they may wait. Some parents also worry about being dismissed, she says. “The take-home message is if you have concerns, ask,” said Halladay.

Concerns By age 1, Skidmore says, kids should be using gestures, pointing, following some directions and looking when their name is called. Halladay says children should be babbling by 12 months and should also reach for things and be able to make back-and-forth gestures to communicate. Not returning smiles is another red flag. Not doing these kinds of things, she says, is not a diagnosis. It is a warning sign. She says children are commonly screened for autism at the 18- and 24month well-baby visit. Some of the signs of autism, specifically, can be more subtle. Autism Speaks offers an informative video series on its website that compares typically developing children with those at risk for autism. The side-by-side videos show similarly aged children engaging in the same activities, say playing with bubbles or a toy truck, and how they differ. The videos are fascinating and highlight less obvious skills that

These indicate a child may need a professional evaluation and may be at risk for atypical development. • No smiles or joyful expression by 6 months • No back-and-forth sharing of facial expressions, sounds or smiles by 9 months • No babbling by 12 months • No back-and-forth pointing, reaching, waving or showing by 12 months • No words by 16 months • No two-word phrases by 2 years • Any loss of speech or social skills at any age Source: Autism Speaks

typically developing children possess. Typically developing children, for instance, tend to interact with a toy and then with their parent then go back to the toy, almost as if they are sharing the experience; the children at risk for autism focus only on the toy. “Not enough people are aware of the early signs of autism,” said Halladay. And the reason to intervene, versus wait and see, is that intervention can make a difference. She points to several studies showing that interventions prior to age 3½ are shown to be more effective than interventions after 5. Language, communication, social interaction are all improved. “Acting early can improve the outcomes,” said Halladay. Whitehouse doesn’t discourage early intervention. He also agrees that, if parents have concerns, or see broader developmental delays beyond the ability to talk, they should consult a speech therapist. He says the next big question to tackle is trying to identify, of the late talkers, “which children are likely to catch up to their peers and which children will have persistent language problems.” Alandra Johnson can be reached at 541-617-7860 or at

e was born into a world of expectation and presumption based on genetics, not on who he really is,” says producer Don Was in a YouTube video interview about Ziggy Marley’s new album, “Wild and Free.” Marley — a Grammy-winning reggae artist and son of the legendary Bob Marley — will play the Athletic Club of Bend tonight (see “If you go”) on his “Forward to Love” tour, which launched in Tucson, Ariz., earlier this month. He’s touring in support of his fourth solo album. Since its June release, Marley, 42, has toured South America with Shakira, and has appeared at festi-

vals in Japan, Switzerland and Britain. Joining him on much of the tour is Natty, a young reggae artist of British and African heritage who cites as influences Neil Young, Fela Kuti and Ziggy’s dad. The Bulletin caught up with Marley by phone a week ago. I’m not what you’d call a Marley expert, so I put out a call on Facebook, asking friends and acquaintances what they’ve always wanted to know about him but haven’t been able to because he never calls them. They’re an admixture of smarty-pants, smartalecks, music and tech nerds and people I hardly know, great if you want to know whether the phrase “Ziggy Stardust” or “Ziggy Marley” is searched more often on the Internet. (They’ll even

provide a helpful link to Google Trends as they write, “In Sweden, Google searches on ‘Ziggy Stardust’ occur more than ‘Ziggy Marley’ and in the USA, the two terms are close.”) Another friend, with whom I grew up in Miami, wanted to know if Marley went to Palmetto, a rival high school of ours. Instead, I asked him if he spent part of his childhood in Miami. “No, I didn’t,” the Kingston native answered in a Jamaican lilt flavored with an underlying hint of tired. “When my grandmother moved to Miami, we would come up (there) during the Christmas time. But … one of my brothers did (go to school in Miami), and a couple of my uncles did.” Continued Page 5

Big Pine and the Pitchtones celebrate their diversity on new CD By Ben Salmon The Bulletin


hen Big Pine and the Pitchtones celebrate their new album tonight with a show at Dudley’s BookShop Cafe in downtown Bend (see “If you go”), a little rearranging of the furniture may be in order to accommodate those who want to dance. “Dudley’s has this great vibe,” said Pitchtones bassist Tom Freedman in an interview Monday. “We’re gonna have to move all the bookshelves off to the side.” Indeed, a Pitchtones show isn’t exactly a sit-still-and-listen kind of experience. The band’s sound is rooted in bluegrass, folk and Western swing, with regular forays into Cajun/Zydeco, and rock ’n’ roll and beyond. And it’s a high-octane blend, unafraid of solos, drums, showmanship, and other things that make traditionminded string-band fans blush. “That’s one of the things … I

think is our strength is we’re such diverse musicians coming together and really enjoying each other,” Freedman said. “Fundamentally, I’m a jazz bass player, so normally if it was pure bluegrass, I would just play like bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp. But it’s all over the map.” The Pitchtones’ origin story starts around a campfire at Waldo Lake, where Freedman met veteran bluegrass picker Pat Erwert and Gary Bowne, who led a popular Bend band called Loose in the Saddle years ago. The trio started playing together, including many informal gigs at Harp Hall, a small “juke joint” near Bend’s Midtown complex that Freedman ran for a while. There, the Pitchtones began to take shape. “We were just doing it for fun for the longest time but we got a really good response over there at Harp Hall,” Freedman said. “And then a couple years ago, we sort of decided to take it more seriously.”

They recruited Jo Booser, an in-demand fiddler with a background in both folk and classical music. Since then, they’ve stayed busy playing weddings and other private gigs, festivals and the occasional show at Dudley’s and the like. They also began making their debut album at J-Wolf Studios in Sisters with the help of Lino, a local musician and producer who Freedman cited as a major help in the album’s direction. The result, “Cold Wind Blowin’,” is a 12-track tour of rootsy musical styles, tight harmonies and skilled picking, including four covers (Darrell Scott and Bob Wills among them) and eight originals penned by Bowne and Erwert. “In the process of doing a CD, we really kind of coalesced in a way that we hadn’t before,” Freedman said. “And it was inspiring to the writers in our band to do more writing. We wanted to have as

many originals as possible.” The quartet’s disparate backgrounds helped tighten up the songs, and in some cases took them to places their composer couldn’t have predicted, Freedman said. “When Gary wrote ‘Bud’s Cove’ it was just him and his guitar,” he said. “And then when we played it as a whole band we got into this Cajun/Zydeco groove and completely changed it. And Gary loved it. He had never imagined that was a possibility.” The group also invited local drummer Georges Bouhey in to lay down some rhythm tracks. Said Freedman: “It started sounding so good we kept calling him back.” It’s that willingness to stretch and experiment that endears the Pitchtones to their fans and keeps things fresh for the band itself. “That’s kind of the beauty of it,” Freedman said. “You have a jazz bass player, a classical and blue-

grass violinist, a country-rock singer and a bluegrass banjo/Dobro/guitar player, and we’re kind of trying to celebrate that fact.” Even if sometimes, people don’t quite get it. “We played at the High & Dry Bluegrass Festival, and I actually took solos on the bass. Imagine that.” Freedman said. “And I had a woman come up to me and say, ‘I didn’t know a bass could do that!’” Ben Salmon can be reached at 541-383-0377 or bsalmon@

From Page 3 The rest of the questions my friends suggested tended toward Marley’s fame, or lack thereof, and jokey questions about marijuana. Indeed, Marley is an advocate for marijuana and its legalization. “I’m pro-hemp, I’m pro-cannabis, I’m pro the use of this natural resource both as medicinal and industrial,” he said. “I think we need to address the plant as a whole, instead of just talk about the recreational or medicinal use. “The cannabis plant is a whole plant,” he continued, “and I think if people understand the bigger picture and not just the stereotypical ‘Oh, people want to smoke weed’ picture, then they will have a better understanding of the purpose and the benefits that this plant could have on the planet, you know.” On the album’s title track, written in support of California’s promarijuana Proposition 19, Marley collaborates with his good friend and fellow hemp advocate, Woody Harrelson. The two trade verses like so over bouncy, organic organ playing: “Sold us the kiss of death denied us the tree of life/ This damn hypocrisy cost so many lives/ Corporation greed can’t own this seed/ Small farmers will survive by planting a weed.” Asked what it was like to work with the movie star who once killed a zombie with a banjo (in

“My mind is pretty open. I’m not closed, so I think that helps to keep fresh ideas coming in.” — Ziggy Marley

“Zombieland,” that is), Marley explains that it wasn’t. “It wasn’t like work. It was just us hanging out and doing some music,” he says. “But Woody’s a good friend of the family. We share certain philosophies. It was fun, you know.” Joining Marley at the recording helm of “Wild and Free” was producer Don Was (of Was Not Was fame), with whom Marley has worked a few times. Past collaborations include “Spirit of Music,” a 1999 album by Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers, his previous band with his siblings, and 2009’s “Family Time,” which won Marley a Grammy for Best Musical Album for Children, his fifth. Was is quoted in press materials as saying, “The thing that makes this new album special is that Ziggy has embraced the more traditional and familiar textures and rhythms of reggae while further defining the unique artistic vision that sets him apart. His quest to find his own voice within the framework of tradition is the real story of the album.”

Said Marley: “I like working with Don because it’s all about the music. It’s not about pretending, it’s not about what you want it to be. It’s about what the music is, and letting it live, you know.” Asked which of the new songs have been going over well with audiences, Marley says, “‘Forward to Love,’ ‘Wild and Free,’ ‘Changes’ — all of them, basically, ‘cause one of the things I went into the album wanting was to make an album that could translate live well, and that’s been working out for us.” While he can’t predict how a song might go over outside studio environs, he says, “experiences I’ve had kind of help point me in the right direction, you know, (after) 40 years.” That 40 years is no exaggeration; Marley and his siblings sat in on recording sessions with his father and the Wailers as children in the 1970s. How does one so predisposed to a musical life stay the course decades into his career? “My mind is pretty open. I’m not closed, so I think that helps to keep fresh ideas coming in,” Marley said. “I have a really young spirit. I’m always learning things and always seeking to learn things, so that keeps things kind of fresh.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or djasper@

music Around the world with Delhi 2 Dublin Delhi 2 Dublin is true fusion music. None of this “we mix Americana, folk, bluegrass and country” stuff here. That’s like saying you serve cookies, cupcakes, brownies and different cookies on the same plate. There are differences, of course, but they’re all sweet. Delhi 2 Dublin, on the other hand, draws from two disparate corners of the globe, and I’ll bet you can guess where they are. Yup, this funky little worldbeat band combines the driving sound of traditional Irish fiddle music with the beat of Indian drums (tabla, dhol), sitar and Indian vocals, all encased in a slick, electronic sheen. It works. Furthermore, it’s cool and it’s interesting. Visit www for more.

There, Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti will play a solo set, which usually means a twangier and more mellow vibe than his band’s shows, but your regular dose of punk attitude.

More musical options over the next week Bands at bars. This is what we do here. So let’s do it. • The Northstar Session’s likable sound draws heavily from

the ’70s, mining that decade’s easygoing pop, classic rock and Laurel Canyon-style twang. Finish it all off with a highly polished and modern aesthetic and you’ll forget what era you’re in. Timeless music can do that to you. 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, free, McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 N.W. Bond St., Bend. • Big Jugs makes no bones about what it does. This is dirty country and bluegrass music, a bawdy, booze-fueled comedy act led by former Bendite Matt Sayles that has opened for the likes of The Devil Makes Three and Trainwreck. Appropriately, they’re playing alongside wet Tshirt contests tonight at Mountain’s Edge (61303 U.S. Highway 97, Bend) and Saturday at Timbers (3315 S. U.S. Highway 97, Redmond). Both shows are free and will start at about 9 p.m. with opener The Mutineers. Continued next page

This weekend in Community Life

SATURDAY Renowned jazz pianist Michael Kaeshammer kicks off the 28th season of the Redmond Community Concert Association’s annual concert series.

SUNDAY Thanks to Facebook, local musician Joe Leonardi reunited with three old friends at the Bend Roots Revival after nearly 50 years apart.

The Changing Colors Courtesy Kevin Shiramizu

From previous page • The Beautiful Train Wrecks are from Portland, but they have a local connection: frontman Lucas Alberg moved to Bend earlier this year. Now, he’s bringing his mates over for a show. The Wrecks make extra-twangy roots-rock that sounds like it’d go nicely with a cold beer and a bar stool; fortunately, where they’re playing has both. 9:30 p.m. Saturday, free, Silver Moon Brewing & Taproom, 24 N.W. Greenwood Ave., Bend.

Sean Hayes returns to Bend yoga studio The San Francisco-based singer-songwriter Sean Hayes will bring his soulful blend of blues, folk and pop back to Bend Saturday night. Hayes travels through town regularly to wow sold-out rooms with his seductive music, which sounds a bit like a more deeply rooted Brett Dennen if he wrote tunes not for sunny skies, but for overcast days. Find him at, and if you decide you want to go but don’t have tickets, don’t hesitate. If they aren’t already gone, they will be. Sean Hayes; 7:30 p.m. Saturday; $18, available at the website below or at the door; Mandala Yoga Community, 55

N.W. Minnesota Ave., Bend; or 541-678-5183.

Two shows at The Horned Hand Fans of downcast rock and/ or Americana should visit The Horned Hand (507 N.W. Colorado Ave., Bend) tonight or Thursday. Here are the details on the shows: • Wires in the Walls is a Los Angeles-based quintet that infuses its rootsy rock ’n’ roll with touches of melodic indie-pop and soaring post-punk, plus DIY attitude. After spending all year recording it, they’ll release their impressive debut album “New Symmetry” in October. Find ’em at www.wiresinthewalls .com. 8 tonight, $5. Third Seven opens. • Led by twin brothers Conor and Ian Bourgal, The Changing Colors come from the rustic Colorado music scene, where it’s easy to imagine their sad, sweeping folk tunes caroming around the craggy face of the nearby Rockies. The Bourgals excel at making sparse songs sound resonant and atmospheric. They’re here: www.thechangingcolors .com. 8 p.m. Thursday, $5. Rural Demons open. — Ben Salmon

St. Vincent STRANGE MERCY 4AD Annie Clark is perfect. This is both infatuating and infuriating. On “Strange Mercy,” her third album as St. Vincent, she is still very comfortably more of the former. But the gap is starting to shrink. After two albums of immaculate chamber-pop, the 28-year-old’s “Strange Mercy” offers more of the same, except this time even more lush and squeaky clean. It begins with a song whose title sounds like a French New Wave film (“Chloe in the Afternoon”), segues into

the breezy disco gallop of “Cruel” and follows with “Cheerleader,” in which she alluringly whispers, “I’ve had good times/ With some bad guys/ I’ve told whole lies/ With a half smile.” It’s all completely irresistible up until the point you want to smash it into a thousand pieces. But even then, it would surely congeal into the most beautiful mosaic ever. Clark’s songs are deliberate and considered, notable both for the variety of sounds she employs (sudden strings, soft synths, all manner of electric guitar) and the structures she stuffs them into. Each is a minisymphony that deftly balances the delicate with the rough. Her guitar playing is clinical, delivered with militaristic precision. — David Malitz, The Washington Post

Lady Antebellum OWN THE NIGHT Capitol Records Nashville For country fans who believe Rascal Flatts rocks too hard, Lady Antebellum appeared five years ago like an adult-contemporary dream, a sweet-singing, fantasticlooking boy-girl-boy trio obsessed with kisses in the moonlight and the things that happen afterward. The Nashville band, famous for 2010’s “Need You Now” and subsequent Grammy dominance, spends its third album honing an unobtrusive formula to precision — beautifully interlocking harmonies plus love songs plus electric guitars plus a requisite change-of-pace rocker (“Friday Night,” which has the aspirational feel of Blake Shelton’s summer hit “Honey Bee”). Built for relentless repetition on many radio formats, “Own the Night” is mostly midtempo ballads, with understated instrumentation designed to showcase Hillary Scott’s unbelievably smooth vocals pitching woo with Charles Kelley’s deeper and somewhat grittier tone. (Dave Haywood drops in to flesh out the harmonies where necessary). The lyrics, mostly penned by the band and rotating co-writ-

ers, are singularly focused: “We Owned the Night” chronicles a new relationship so exciting it moves Kelley to declare “aw, yeah!”; “Dancing Away With My Heart” dreams of The One That Got Away (“For me, you’ll always be 18 and beautiful”); “As You Turn Away” is a dark breakup ballad; and “The Love I’ve Found In You” is about, well, maybe you’re detecting a theme, here. There’s nothing wrong with “Own the Night.” It’s well-written, pristinely sung and is likely to be a huge hit. But would a little spontaneity kill anybody? Come on, Lady, make a mistake. Hit the wrong note. Knock over a microphone. Something to remind us you’re human. — Steve Knopper, Newsday

Blondie PANIC OF GIRLS Eleven Seven Music At Blondie’s post-’80s gigs, fans have tended to respond most strongly to the New York band’s early pop-punk material. But that style didn’t yield the group’s biggest hits and is barely represented on its latest release, “Panic of Girls.” Instead, Debbie Harry and her five cohorts (three of them are recent recruits) explore synthpop, reggae, salsa and French chanson. The album, Blondie’s third and best since its 1982-1997 layoff, opens with three upbeat numbers. “D-Day,” “What I

Neon Indian ERA EXTRANA Mom + Pop Music Last year, Neon Indian, Toro y Moi and Washed Out became the standard bearers of the chillwave microgenre, so named for its reverb-soaked vocals and simplistic danceable beats made from loops, synthesizers and laptop programming. Those qualities also caused critics and bloggers to write off chillwave as nothing more than a fad. But this year, Toro y Moi and Washed Out have proven that chillwave can be much more sophisticated. And now from Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo), there’s “Era Extrana,” a wonderfully weird album that pairs M83’s ’80s synthesizer fe-

Heard” and “Mother” recall the group’s original blend of punk and girl-group pop, yet their timbres are heavily electronic and their arrangements closer to ABBA than to the Ramones. If Blondie can’t recapture its ’70s urgency, the band still has two significant assets: its singer and its songs. At 66, Harry has a remarkably strong, clear voice, and she and longtime writing partner Chris Stein have always been willing to record other people’s tunes. “Panic of Girls” includes collaborations with new keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen and album co-producer Kato Khandwala, as well as covers of songs by Jamaican singer Sophie George

tishism with what sounds like the soundtrack to an old sci-fi flick. The beats are just as arresting as those in Neon Indian’s debut album, “Psychic Chasms,” while being altogether more complex, with tightly packed swirling synths, theremin weeps and electronic effects washing over the songs. “Fallout” sounds like a dreary Human League number bathed in electronic fuzz, and “Arcade Blues” is a catchy electro-pop tune that samples

video game sound effects. Simply put, “Era Extrana” takes the microgenre, which many saw as a punch line, and pokes, prods and deepens it. Further proof that Neon Indian and his ilk are here to stay. — Brandon Weigel, The Washington Post

and large festival appearances. With the release of “We Are the Tide,” fans will know Nebeker even better, even though it’s not the release many expected. The methodical and mellow new record is every bit as luscious as “3 Rounds,” but where-

as Blind Pilot’s debut was an eyes-wide-open exploration of a new world, “We Are the Tide” is a more thoughtful, melancholic treatise that looks in the rearview mirror while sounding more assured than ever. The centerpiece here is the title track, of course. Fans of Blind Pilot’s stunning live shows are familiar with “We Are the Tide,” a song the band has been playing live for more than a year. And while the island percussion is more intense in concert, this recorded version is a sunny jaunt that reveals a new side of Blind Pilot — one that could easily provide the band with a crossover to more popular channels. — Richard Baca, The Denver Post

Blind Pilot WE ARE THE TIDE Expunged Records Israel Nebeker and his band had the unenviable task of following up a lauded debut LP that was both a critic’s darling and an indie fan favorite. Portland-based Blind Pilot’s debut, 2008’s “3 Rounds and a Sound,” captured our imaginations and introduced us to an important new songwriter, Nebeker, whose fresh approach to literate chamber-pop music was both emotional and impressionistic. The record grew as the band got the word out, first via a self-produced bicycle tour of the West Coast and later via opening slots for The Decemberists

and Beirut, a Balkan-flavored American alt-pop outfit. There may not be a comeback hit in the bunch, but neither are there any throwaways. — Mark Jenkins, The Washington Post

nip in the smoky air. An orange tint spreading across leaves. Neighborhood kids hucking crabapples all over the place. Autumnal imagery trotted out in articles concerning the season. All telltale signs that it’s getting to be fall. Another sign: Bend Fall Festival, that yearly confection of food, shopping, music, art and fun, happening Saturday and Sunday smack in the middle of downtown Bend (see “If you go”). C3 Events’ Cameron Clark said his company has learned something in its 10th year of producing the festival. “We’ve learned that there’s a balance one has to accomplish when producing these events. It’s that people are enthusiastic about expecting some basic elements of the festivals to stay the same — pony and wagon rides, lots of hay, best baked-pie competitions, pumpkin painting contests, fine art, crafts … beers, wines, live music, and other fall-themed activities.” Make that more than 100 juried arts and crafts booths, which is

nothing to sneeze at. But, Clark added, one can’t let things grow stale by offering the same year-to-year fall fare. To that fresh end, this year’s event will feature a Saturday harvest market, “with farmers’ market vendors selling fresh produce, meats, specialty foods, cut flowers, and baked goods,” he said. “We think it’s going to be a huge hit.” Then there’s the live music, arranged with the help of local concert promoter Random Presents. Headlining the Main Stage on Saturday will be everyone’s favorite Seattle band, Supersuckers, dosing your ears with a special blend of Ramones-meets-AC/DC rock. On the local front, Clark said, “The KPOV stage will be smokin’ with some the this area’s most exemplary talent, including the Moon Mountain Ramblers headlining on Saturday night.” (See schedule for more of this year’s acts.) Fall Festival also features the Dash for Dads Race to Cure Prostate Cancer, a one-mile family run and walk at 11 a.m. Saturday.

he credits at the end of “Gears of War 3” go on for 14 hours or so. It’s easy to see why: “Gears 3” is a fantastic idea polished to near perfection by an enormous crew of talented developers and a bottomless budget. If you’re not a believer yet this probably won’t convert you, but I can’t think of anything I wanted in this installment that Epic doesn’t deliver on. The nuts and bolts of the “Gears” machine are the same innards the franchise has always been built on. The tactical, coverfocused combat demands equal parts strategy and execution and rewards excellence in each. The intensely violent audiovisual presentation puts weight behind every action in the game, selling a real sense of physical space and contact. “Gears of War” is every bit the triple-A shooter “Call of Duty” or “Halo” is, but its slower-paced combat provides a unique and fascinating take on the genre. I would have been happy with 10 more hours of “Gears” campaign. Epic hit the 10 hours on the nose, but made it better in every way. Including female “Gears” helps keep the dudebro locker-room machismo to a reasonable level. The few touchy-feely scenes are handled competently. Levels are the same linear series of combat arenas and atmospheric mood pieces, but both aspects are top-notch and the pacing is markedly better than in the earlier games. I can count

Network play in “Gears of War 3” includes an easy way to play the modes you want with the people you want. on my hands the number of times the squad AI annoyed me by jumping into my line of fire or letting a hostile waltz past them to flank me. The encounters provide a constantly shuffling deck of threats that encourage players to experiment with new weapons and tactics. The presentation, of course, is outstanding. Four-player co-op makes it all the sweeter. The finale puts a satisfying, unequivocal endcap on the story line, such as it is. “Gears” has never had terribly compelling fiction and the entire arc of this final chapter is beyond predictable, but at least it’s a coherent story that doesn’t need a wiki and a three-month ARG to decipher. I’ll never hate on anyone declaring their indifference to “Gears’” plot, but that’s not the reason to play through the campaign.

I would have been entirely satisfied with new maps to shake up the outstanding multiplayer from “Gears 2.” Epic easily takes care of that with classic modes like Team Deathmatch and “Gears” favorites like Wingman on brilliant, varied maps. An amazing new mode reminiscent of playing the Infected in “Left 4 Dead” joins Horde mode on the co-op front.

I love the Counter-Strike style economy of earning cash for breaking fortifications and killing humans, then spending that cash to respawn as anything from a Ticker to a Boomer. This new Beast mode is as compelling to me as Horde mode, “Call of Duty’s” Spec Ops or Zombies, or any other innovative co-op mode from the last decade. “Gears 3’s” smart approach to network play makes it easier than ever to play the modes you want with the people you want, keeping parties together and carrying all of your stats and achievements between co-op, competitive, and campaign play. “Gears of War 3” doesn’t do anything radical, not that anyone expected it to. Only the staunchest “Gears” haters will find much fault here, though. This is the best execution yet of an idea that spawned one of the biggest modern franchises in all of gaming.

Weekly download ‘RED BULL X-FIGHTERS’ Reviewed for: Xbox 360; also available for Windows PC, PlayStation 3/PSP From: Xendex/Konami ESRB Rating: E for Everyone Price: $10 It’s hard to describe “Red Bull X-Fighters” without blowing a kiss over to “Trials HD,” because much of what “RBXF” does was done two years ago in “Trials.” It’s a motorbike game, the events are a mix of stunt challenges and time trials, and even the design and semi-diagonal camera perspective are more than a little familiar. Fortunately, while “RBXF” isn’t fresh, it at least copies the idea competently. The bike physics are believable without being as unforgiving as they were in “Trials,” and the controls are a textbook case of easy to learn and tough to master. Basic riding and trick execution is elementary, but popping subtle wheelies for speed boosts and expertly timing an advanced trick that requires some seriously awkward simultaneous button presses (RT+RB+LT+Y+B) is anything but simple. There are fewer events and less variety to them as well. Trying to achieve gold trophy scores in every event is a beastly challenge that will keep the right kind of player busy for a good while, but those happy to just settle for bronze and go home can feasibly see all of “RBXF’s” tracks and events in a few hours’ time. — Billy O’Keefe, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Sherrise, a Bend artist, opened Inspiration Community Creativity Center in a warehouse off of Carmen Loop in Bend. The center will offer workshops and community events.

Inspiration Community Creativity Center opens its doors to artists — and non-artists — alike By David Jasper T h e Bulletin


t’s hard to ignore a press release titled, “Inspiration Community Creativity Center launches dynamic community arts space geared towards adults.” Hmm, a kind of Art Station for big kids? That’s intriguing. Let’s hear more. “Inspiration, the brainchild of local Bend artist who goes by Sherrise, is not your average art studio and gallery,” the release

says. “Through community art space, classes and events, and special nights and gatherings, Inspiration seeks to provide a space that encourages and supports creativity.” Heck yeah. That’s some solid Fine Arts section raw material right there. So it’s off to the center we go. It’s located on Carmen Loop, a well-kempt warehouse district in what is perhaps Bend’s least artsy neighborhood, the Old Farm District. The 2,000-squarefoot warehouse is bordered by

other warehouses, and trains idle on the tracks to the east. That’s just how Sherrise — who moved to Bend three years ago — prefers it. The 32-yearold is graduate of Art Institutes International Minnesota, where she studied multimedia and Web design. She worked as a designer both before and after, a career that led her to the East Coast, and then back to Minnesota. When the company she worked for sold, she decided “I

really wanted to get away from designing websites because I was really tired of creating things that didn’t really actually exist. It was frustrating after a while.” She decided to head west. “I came up to visit an aunt and uncle (in Powell Butte) and never left,” she said. Career-wise, she gave into her art yen, wanting “to use my hands to create things that will last, that people will appreciate and can see and touch and feel.” Continued next page

fine arts From previous page As an artist herself, Sherrise said, “I do a lot of different things.” Some of those things are on display in the center, including paintings of multicolored circles — done with house paint, no less — and a life-size welded guitar sculpture. Now that’s what you call metal. She also does ceramics. The inspiration for Inspiration was a friend’s idea of cofounding an art-focused magazine. “She kind of fell out of the picture, and I kind of took the magazine idea and, well, made it a lot more,” she said. Sherrise hasn’t ruled out the idea of launching a magazine, but she’d prefer it come as an after-effect of “some of my big events here.” The center launched a month ago with Ignition, an event featuring projector art and drawings, paintings and more, all focused on the evening’s theme. Four times a year, Inspiration plans to hold other events derived from an “I” word. For example, the Jan. 22 theme is “Impetuous.” (Plan accordingly, or don’t, given the word’s

meaning.) You won’t have to wait till then to enjoy Inspiration’s offerings. Beginning in October, the center will host Figure Drawing Open Labs Tuesdays at 6 p.m., a monthly “Stitch n’ Bitch” circle at 1 p.m. the first Saturday of each month, and a 12-week workshop focusing on Julia Cameron’s “The Artists’ Way” at 5:30 p.m. Thursdays. For those in need of studio space, Inspiration will hold open studio sessions from 2-5

Piano concert set at COCC campus Saturday Central Oregon pianists Jean Shrader and Kathy Gault will perform a little Mozart, some ragtime and other piano duos at the “Four Hands, Two Pianos” concert 7:30 p.m. Saturday. A press release for the free event promises it will be “a fun concert filled to the brim with beautiful music that will include some surprises.” The Central Oregon Symphony Association is presenting the performance, to be held at Central Oregon Community College’s Wille Hall at 2600 N.W. College Way in Bend. No tickets required. Contact: www.cosymphony .com or 541-317-3941.

‘Chicago’ sets Tower attendance record The recent eight-performance run of Cat Call Productions’ “Chicago” (Sept. 16-24) was the most successful and highly attended stage production in Tower Theatre history. Nearly 3,200 people saw the musical vaudeville set in 1920s Chicago, according to Ray Solley, executive director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. The previous attendance record was held by Obsidian Opera’s January 2007 production of “Fiddler on the Roof.”

“The support from the Bend community was amazing,” a press release quoted Tifany LeGuyonne, co-founder and co-executive producer of Cat Call. “This was the right play at the right time, with an incredible team of local talent. We’re thrilled that so many people were inspired and entertained by our production.”

Deadline nears for Northwest Ten Festival The Northwest Ten Festival of Ten-Minute Plays is accepting submissions for its 2012 show, open only to Oregon residents. For the first time in its fouryear history, the festival will incorporate a theme: “Writing on the Wall,” and all plays submitted to the festival should address this theme in some manner. “We’re excited to mix it up

and offer something new in this year’s festival,” Paul Calandrino, executive producer of Northwest Ten, said in a press release. “The idea of ‘writing on the wall’ can be interpreted broadly. It can refer to an omen or inevitability. It might refer to text: graffiti, the press, signage, displays. Or it might simply refer to the action of writing, what writers do. We encourage playwrights to be creative with it.” Authors may submit only one script. Winning plays, which should be no longer than about 10 pages in length, with a running time of 8 to 10 minutes, will be staged in April at the Lord Leebrick Theatre in Eugene. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 31. Contact: nw10festival@gmail .com. —David Jasper

— will be featured, but others will also be available. Finally, Guided meditation sessions will be held at 6 p.m. on alternate Mondays beginning next week, and a monthly Community Dinner and Movie Night at the warehouse will start at 7 p.m. Oct. 19. An R.S.V.P. is recommended for

all events. Sherrise takes business and art classes at Central Oregon Community College, and other than running Inspiration, has no current day job. In fact, she said, she put all her eggs in one basket when she launched the center as a birthday present to herself. “This is actually the beginning of my 30-year plan,” she added, laughing. “I’ve always been told you have to start small, and that’s never really worked for me. So I decided to go big and try to make it work. “I’d like to start a collective. I just need people who want the same thing, who want to be involved in something cool,” she said. “If you combine people’s talents and ambitions together, you have trust that you can share your ideas with each other and you can create much bigger things than you often do on your own. It might lead you into a whole new area that you never would’ve experienced.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or djasper@

Patrons dine on the patio of Pilot Butte Drive-In Westside. The iconic restaurant opened its west-side Bend doors June 10.

Pilot Butte Drive-In’s burgers are as good as you’ve heard By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin


hen I was a teenager in Eugene in the 1960s, the one-mile stretch of Willamette Street south of 18th Avenue was like something out of the film “American Graffiti.” Each Friday and Saturday night, every revved-up Chevy, Ford and Dodge owned by a local high-school student could be spotted cruising first one way and then the other, making a U-turn at the A&W diner that could have doubled for Arnold’s Drive-In in the “Happy Days”

television series. I hadn’t thought much about those days until I began visiting Pilot Butte Drive-In’s new location in the Century Plaza shopping complex on Bend’s west side. The restaurant has no car-hop service, but the music is there; classic ’60s rock blares through the sound system 15 hours a day. And the cars are there, although they are now miniatures; about two dozen tiny “rods” are mounted on the inside walls, their flame designs seeming even brighter when the Beach Boys’ “Little

Deuce Coupe” begins to play. The food and service are there, too, although in both cases, they are a whole lot better than I can recall them ever being at the A&W in Eugene. Almost since it opened on Northeast Greenwood Avenue in 1983, Pilot Butte Drive-In has consistently placed at or near the top of every “best burger” survey conducted in Central Oregon. It took 28 years for the Bend institution to expand beyond its original digs at the foot of Pilot Butte. On June 10 — about the time school was out for summer — owners William and Tammy Falconer opened their Pilot Butte Drive-In Westside in the former Tony’s Delicatessen space between Safeway and Starbucks Coffee.

Scorecard OVERALL: AFood: A-. Burgers and other entrees are excellent; it’s just the extras that slip. Service: A-. Friendly, fast and more responsive than at other diner-style restaurants. Atmosphere: A. Simple, bright and fun, with classic rock and miniature cars mounted on walls. Value: A-. Not the cheapest burgers in town, but you get a lot for your dollar.

‘Gooey and drippy’ The first test of a burger joint, of course, is: How are the burgers? At Pilot Butte Drive-In Westside, they are big and juicy, served on oversized bakery Kaiser rolls with enough extras that no human mouth could possibly get around the entire sandwich. I ordered a mushroom cheeseburger, made (like most Pilot Butte burgers) with 6 ounces of ground chuck. The bottom layer of the sandwich was, I expect, similar to what I might find on other PB burgers: a tomato-based sauce piled with shredded leaf lettuce and slices of tomato, red onion and dill pickles. On top of that was the meat, topped with an ample quantity of fresh mushrooms, sliced and lightly sauteed. Next came cheddar cheese, melted into the meat and mushrooms, and the top bun dripped with a spread of mayonnaise. It indeed lived up to a statement made years ago by Jack Mangin, Pilot Butte’s founder, and repeated on the restaurant’s website: “A great burger must be gooey and drippy.”

My only complaint was that I was not given the choice of cheese that the menu promised. I might have chosen Swiss, jack or pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar.

Chicken and soup Are all of Pilot Butte’s offerings as satisfying as its burgers? More often than not, the answer is “yes.” A grilled chicken breast sandwich was as thick as my burger had been, with most of the same extras and a knife that protruded from the heart of the bun. The presentation was much the same as the burger, although the sauce was replaced by tangy mustard

I found them thick and overcooked. A manager — who told me they are delivered pre-sliced but fried in-house — confessed that he agreed. “But if we don’t cook them that long,” he said, “they’re too chewy.”

There are too many good potato chips on the market to diminish a meal with these. I especially liked a cup of the house-made soup of the day. It had a little of everything, especially mushrooms and wild rice, but also diced ham and chicken, green and white onions, celery and potatoes, all in a light broth seasoned with various herbs. Although I don’t do backflips for deep-fried food, I thought a side order of fried zucchini and mushrooms wasn’t bad. The vegetables were dipped in a thin tempura batter with Japanese panko bread crumbs and fried just crispy, leaving the veggies lightly cooked through.

Breakfast fare Pilot Butte also does an excellent job with breakfasts, which it serves from 6 to 11 a.m. daily. The menu features at least two dozen eye-opening meals, from chicken-fried steak and eggs to build-your-own omelets, and cinnamon French toast to old-fashioned waffles. I opted for the Mexican-style Huevos Rancheros Supreme and was treated to a stratified meal so filling it pre-empted any desire I may have had for lunch that day. Cheddar cheese was melted upon refried beans that were spread across two corn tortillas. This was topped with two eggs, cooked over easy per my request. Then came bites of grilled tri-tip steak with multicolored bell peppers, followed by a layer of salsa and big scoops of guacamole and sour cream. Neither the salsa nor the guacamole could have been considered gourmet. In particular, the tomato-based salsa was thick and bland and the guacamole was pasty. But the rest of the dish was excellent. I was delighted with the service

I received at Pilot Butte Westside. Although diners order at the counter, meals are delivered directly to tables. These seat about 40, and bar stools accommodate another 14. Another eight tables beckon diners outside for patio dining. There’s always a friendly employee standing at the counter to take additional orders and to answer questions. At breakfast, I even had a server check back to see if I was satisfied, an action that is exceedingly rare at a fast food restaurant. Then again, Pilot Butte’s fare is not “fast food.” Each order is individually prepared, even the 18-ounce Pilot Butte Burger that has become the restaurant’s trademark. Back in the day, that might have fed an entire car full of hungry teenagers. John Gottberg Anderson can be reached at janderson@

SMALL BITES The Bend Food Pod, a gathering of six separate mobile kitchens, opens today at Northeast Third Street and DeKalb Avenue. Justin Brown, owner of So Wild Fish and Chips, said he would be joined by Bee’s Thai, Crazy Delicious Chicken and Waffles, Mr. D’s Grill, Parrilla Grill and the Patty Wagon at this location. Beer and wine are served. Live music will begin at 7:30 tonight to celebrate the grand opening. Open 7:30 (10:30) a.m. to 11 p.m. (or close) Monday to Saturday. 344 N.E. Third St.; 541-639-1372.

RECENT REVIEWS Seven Restaurant & Nightclub (B-): A reasonably priced menu, split between Irish and American classics, offers good meat but unexciting preparations. Friendly bartenders double as food servers in adjoining dark, austere rooms. Open 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday to Saturday. 1033 N.W. Bond St., Bend; or 541-760-9412. Pisano’s Pizza (B+): Gourmet New York-style pizza, along with outstanding sandwiches and salads, make Pisano’s the place for Italian pies in northwest Bend. Service, however, can be less than reliable when business is brisk. Open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. 2755 N.W.

The Associated Press

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, left, and Seth Rogen star as best friends in “50/50.”

‘50/50’ will make you smile Film about cancer isn’t accurate, but it’s a comforting look at survival


oung people should not get sick and die. Most of us do eventually, but how sad it is to learn in your 20s that you have a dangerous cancer and your chances of survival are 50/50. How crueler still if the news is delivered by a doctor who seems almost deliberately sadistic. Start with those odds. They may indeed be accurate,

but would it kill the guy to make them 60/40? Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a writer for public radio in Seattle, which makes him almost a poster boy for someone who should grow old and wise. He has a nagging back pain. The oncologist says it is a rare form of cancer of the spine. “50/50” was written by Will Reiser, who himself was di-

agnosed with a spinal tumor. Seth Rogen, who plays Adam’s best friend, Kyle, is a close friend of Reiser in real life, and the movie is based on what happened in their friendship after the diagnosis. After surgery and treatment, Reiser is currently in the sixth year of remission, and cheerfully observes, “Remission apparently lasts forever … or until you die.” In an interview by Jen Chaney with the two of them in The Washington Post, they joke endlessly, which is perhaps inevitable between a comedy writer and a comic actor, and although “50/50”

is structured with the efficiency of a sitcom, there’s an undercurrent of truth and real feeling. Adam turns to his best buddy for support and encouragement. Kyle rises to the occasion, unlike Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard), his girlfriend, who (as he learns) wasn’t all that committed even before the awful diagnosis. Rachael of course vows to stand by him and help him, as society says we must do, but in fact, cancer is a messy and depressing business, and she signed on to be a girlfriend, not a nurse.

A parab le of truth and tragedy ‘Life, Above All’ is a tear-jerker but a worthy one with stellar acting


liver Schmitz’s “Life, Above All” earns the tears it inspires. The film is about deep human emotions, evoked with sympathy and love. It takes place entirely within a South African township near Johannesburg, one with modest prosperity and well-tended homes. It centers on the 12-yearold Chanda, who takes on the responsibility of holding her family together after her baby sister dies. As the film opens, Chanda (Khomotso Manyaka) visits an undertaker to examine the inexpensive coffins on display. This is a task no 12-year-old should ever have to bear. But her mother, Lillian (Lerato Mvelase), is immobilized by grief and illness and her father by drink. The nextdoor neighbor woman, Mrs. Tafa (Harriet Manamela), helps her care for two younger siblings. Suspicion spreads in the neighborhood that the real cause of the family’s problems is AIDS, although the word itself isn’t said aloud until well into the film. Its absence forms a fearful echo chamber — reflecting South Africans’ own insistence, until recent years, of denying the reality of AIDS. A family linked to the disease by rumor or gossip is ostracized, which is why Mrs. Tafa facilitates Lillian’s “visit” to distant relatives. Chanda does what she can to care for her siblings, attend school and keep up appearances. Her own good heart is demonstrated by her friendship with a schoolmate named Esther (Keaobaka Makanyane), who is forced

into prostitution to earn the funds for survival. It goes unspoken between them that this could lead to AIDS for Esther herself. The South African tragedy was that former president Thabo Mbeki persisted in his puzzling denial about the causes and treatment of AIDS, so many who suffered and died of AIDS need not have. This contributed to a climate of ignorance and mystery surrounding the disease, which only increased its spread. By directly dealing with the poisonous climate of rumor and gossip, the film takes a stand. But in nations where AIDS has been demystified, “Life, Above All” will play strongly as pure human drama, about two women, one promptly and one belatedly, rising courageously to a challenge. The performances by the two young girls are remarkable here. They have seen and internalized unspeakable experiences. Their faces are young, but their eyes are wise. Whenever I see such early performances by inexpe-

From previous page She doesn’t have the right stuff. And believe me, the challenges Adam presents for her in “50/50” are nothing compared to real life. If you’ve been involved in the case of a loved one with cancer, you’ll observe that girl gets off easy. Adam is also supported, maybe too much, by his mother, Diane (Anjelica Huston), who actually moves into the house. Her husband has Alzheimer’s, and she’s stuck by him, so she has the right stuff, but when you’re sick you

need quiet time, and the constant presence of a determined mother is not always what’s called for. The movie places Adam in a cancer patients’ support group, where his fellow patient Alan (Philip Baker Hall) provides dry, realistic input. Alan is a model of Acceptance, the fifth stage in Elisabeth Kübler-Ross’ Five Stages of Grief. His work here is a reminder of what an effective actor Hall always is. Anna Kendrick plays Katherine, Adam’s therapist, who gets just as involved as his oncolo-

Khomotso Manyaka stars as Chanda, a 12-year-old South African who takes after her family after her sister’s death in “Live, Above All.”

In nations where AIDS has been demystified, “Life, Above All” will play strongly as pure human drama, about two women, one promptly and one belatedly, rising courageously to a challenge. rienced actors, I wonder where they come from. No doubt director Oliver Schmitz had much to do with these. The casting process must have been crucial. But Manyaka and Makanyane have grave self-possession; they never even slightly overact. I met Khomotso Manyaka at Ebertfest 2011 and found her a cheerful, friendly teenager. Where did she find these resources? Where does any actor?

As for Harriet Manamela as Mrs. Tafa, she has a central role. This township is far from the poorest in South Africa. In the terms of that neighborhood, many households are middle-class. Mrs. Tafa embodies authority. She is fiercely proud of her son, a star athlete. She shares the general taboos about AIDS, but she is a good person, kind, sympathetic, which she sometimes keeps concealed.

gist is aloof. I know therapists are supposed to observe a certain distance, but in a case like this I don’t see how one can. I would make a terrible therapist. The screenplay perhaps benefits from Reiser’s experience on television, and proceeds in an orderly way through a basic sitcom structure. Some of the comedy aspects may seem unlikely, but Seth Rogen has a winning way about him and reveals genuine affection. If a movie like this were as relentlessly realistic as a mas-

terpiece like Mike Nichols’ “Wit,” it would probably not be commercial and end up, as “Wit” did, on HBO. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. What I appreciated was the third act. Sitcoms and film comedies in general have a way of going haywire with comic desperation toward the end. This one doesn’t. Director Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) has established the characters with enough care that the audience is prepared when they reveal greater depth to-

There is a scene here where fearful neighbors gather outside Chanda’s house, inflamed by their suspicions about her mother. Mrs. Tafa confronts them, surprising even herself, perhaps, by how she rises to the occasion. Schmitz’s camera placements here are confident and underline the drama. The film’s ending is improbably upbeat: magic realism, in a sense. It works as a deliverance. Dennis Foon’s screenplay is based on the novel “Chanda’s Secrets,” by the Canadian writer Allan Stratton. It is a parable with biblical undertones, calling back to “Cry, the Beloved Country.” Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

ward the end. Anjelica Huston is especially good at breaking free of what seem to be the boundaries of her role. “50/50” isn’t completely true to life, but the more you know about cancer the less you want it to be. Like another recent feel-good film about the disease, Gus Van Sant’s “Restless,” it creates a comforting myth. That’s one of the things movies are good for. Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.




This ‘Number’ has already been dialed B

ad timing allowed “What’s Your Number?,” a mildly raunchy romantic comedy about a woman lamenting her sexual history as she resolves to finally save herself for Mr. Right, to come out mere months after the too-similar “Bridesmaids.” And bad timing is evident on the screen, as well, as this comedy struggles to find a tone, find its footing, find any comic momentum that two generally funny leads could carry across the comic finish line. Anna Faris and Chris Evans don’t have enough scenes together, don’t have enough funny lines and aren’t surrounded by enough funny people to give this “Bridesmaids”-lite a shot. Faris plays 30-something Ally Darling, who uses the day she is laid off from her marketing job to read an article detailing research that shows that women who have had more than 20 sexual partners are less likely to marry. Ally tallies her-

Anna Faris has a coiffure malfunction as she searches for the best “ex” of her life in “What’s Your Number?” conquests. “You’re a peach,” he tells her, for letting him avoid “hurt feelings” amongst his bevy of babes. “You’re a pig,” Ally snarls back. A cute running gag — Ally has flashbacks to her exes, then meets them today and each is

odd in his own odd way. And she was odd around them in an effort to court them. She dated a Brit, and faked a British accent to seal the deal. Does she still remember her “My Fair Lady” lines, guvner? Ally is also helping her younger sister, Daisy (Ari Graynor), prep

for her wedding, giving Faris a chance to show off her “drunk” engagement toast shtick. She stuffs her face with samples of the wedding cake Daisy might choose. “Nobody’s ever going to see me naked again,” is her excuse. It’s no longer a shock to hear the buxom blonde next door swear like a frat boy as she talks of her frat-boy-friendly sex life. And it doesn’t help that we meet Faris in a scene identical to the opening moment of “Bridesmaids” — slipping out of bed, freshening up so that she can pretend to be that pretty even when she awakes. The banter with Evans is often first-rate (“If these girls can’t see you coming, they deserve what they get!”). There’s just not enough of it. They have a few cute set-piece scenes, just not that many. It’s a movie that lacks urgency, despite Ally’s protests that “I’m running out of time, money and viable eggs” during her manhunt. The director, “Entourage” vet Mark Mylod, doesn’t have either a light touch or a pound-out-the-laughs feel for the material, so lines are lost, situations fail to deliver and Faris and Evans never quite click the way the script ordains that they must Thus, “What’s Your Number?” fails to add up to anything we haven’t seen before, recently and now available on video.

WHAT’S NEW “50/50” — Adam (Joseph GordonLevitt) is a writer for Seattle public radio whose nagging back pain is diagnosed as a rare form of cancer of the spine. His chances are 50/50. Seth Rogen plays the best pal who tries to cheer him up, Bryce Dallas Howard is the girlfriend scared away by cancer,

A magazine for your mind, body and self.

G eor g e Kraychyk / Universal Pictures

Will (Daniel Craig) and Libby (Rachel Weisz) console their children in “Dream House.” and Anjelica Huston is the protective mom. Written by Will Reiser, and somewhat autobiographical (Rogen is his good friend). Not depressing; more comforting. Rating: Three and a half stars. 99 minutes. (R) “Courageous” — It’s interesting to track the growing cinematic sophistication of those preaching / filmmaking brothers of Sherwood Baptist Church — from “Facing the Giants” to their breakout hit “Fireproof” to their latest film, “Courageous.” Writer Stephen Kendrick and writer-director-actor Alex Kendrick have mastered building suspense, hiding surprises, action beats (chases, shootouts) and even humor, and that makes their latest faith-based drama a cut and many,

many edits above “Fireproof” in simple movie terms. But it also has signs of that sophomore jinx that so many start-up moviemakers suffer after delivering a box-office hit. It’s preachier. Rating: One and a half stars. 124 minutes (PG-13)

— Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel “Dream House” — Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz (who recently married in real life) star as a couple who discover their beautiful new home was the site of a horrific murder. Naomi Watts co-stars as the meddling neighbor who knows what really went down. This film was not screened in advance for critics. 92 minutes. (PG-13)

“Life, Above All” — A drama inspiring tears, centering on the 12-year-old Chanda (Khomotso Manyaka), who takes on the responsibility of holding her family together after her baby sister dies. As the film opens, she visits an undertaker to examine the inexpensive coffins on display. This is a task no 12-year-old should ever have to bear. But her mother is immobilized by grief and illness and her father by drink. The next-door neighbor woman helps her care for two younger siblings. Rumors of AIDS swirl around the family, and there’s a dramatic confrontation with the neighbors. Gravely and powerfully acted, good-hearted and brave. Rating: Four stars. 102 minutes. (PG-13) “What’s Your Number?” — Bad timing allowed “What’s Your Number?,” a mildly raunchy romantic comedy about a woman lamenting her sexual history as she resolves to finally save herself for Mr. Right, to come out mere months after the too-similar “Bridesmaids.” And bad timing is evident on the screen, as well, as this comedy struggles to find a tone, find its footing, find any comic momentum that two generally funny leads could carry across the comic finish line. Anna Faris and Chris Evans don’t have enough scenes together, don’t have enough funny lines and aren’t surrounded by enough funny people to give this “Bridesmaids”-lite a shot. Rating: One and a half stars. 105 minutes. (R)

— Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel


— Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald

“Abduction” — “Twilight” alumnus Taylor Lautner makes his debut

as a leading man in an action film tailor-made — ahem — for him. “Abduction” puts Lautner in motion and never goes very far wrong as long as he remains in motion. The buff teen werewolf of “Twilight” plays a young man who has his world upended and finds himself on the run when enemy agents attack his home and the people he knew as his parents aren’t who they say they are. With its violence, underage drinking, reckless behavior and profanity, “Abduction” falls in the same corner of the youth market as the “Twilight” movies. Some moments and many lines (“Sometimes, I feel like a freak”) feel cribbed from that series. And with a plot that most adults will stay a step or two ahead of, “Abduction” isn’t going to challenge anybody who has seen more than one “on the lam” picture. But Lautner as action hero doesn’t embarrass himself, not by a long shot. Rating: Two stars. 106 minutes. (PG-13)

— Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel “Captain America: The First Avenger” — A real movie, not a noisy assembly of incomprehensible special effects. Of course it’s loaded with CGI, but it has texture and properly tells a full story. Chris Evans stars as Steve Rogers, a puny kid who is transformed into a muscular superhero and battles a Nazi uber-villain known as the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving). With Hayley Atwell as a sultry WAC, Tommy Lee Jones as an Army colonel, Stanley Tucci as a scientist and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, who will go on to father Iron Man. Rating: Three stars. 125 minutes. (PG-13)

movies From previous page “Cars 2” — The inventor of a new alternative fuel (voice by Eddie Izzard) sponsors a World Grand Prix, which comes down to a duel between Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Francesco Bernoulli (John Turturro). They get mixed up in a secret war involving defenders of fossil fuels and the British spies Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer). Great fun by the animation master John Lasseter, and better than “Cars” (2006). See it in 2-D if you can. Rating: Three and a half stars. 107 minutes (G) “Contagion” — A realistic, unsensational film about a global epidemic. It’s being marketed as a thriller, but it’s more of a chiller: A frightening speculation about how a new airborne virus could enter the human species and spread relentlessly in very little time. With Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law. Rating: Three stars. 105 minutes (PG-13) “The Debt” — A legendary 1965

raid by three agents of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, is celebrated by the publication of a book in 1997, unfortunately just as new facts are emerging. A good cast, but the older and younger versions of the characters don’t match up well, and the plot loses its way. Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, Ciaran Hinds, Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, Marton Csokas. Rating: Two and a half stars. 112 minutes. (R) “Dolphin Tale” — A sweet, feel-good film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin helps save him. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) discovers a beached dolphin with its tail entangled in the ropes of a lobster trap. A shy, closed-off boy, he is drawn out of his shell through attempts to save the dolphin and provide it with a prosthetic tail after its own tail must be amputated. Incredibly, this is inspired by real events, and the dolphin involved, named Winter, plays herself. A good cast: Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., Kris Kristofferson, Morgan Freeman, and young Cozi Zuehlsdorff as Sawyer’s new friend at a marine animal hospital. Uplifting

family entertainment. Rating: Three stars. 112 minutes. (PG) “Drive” — Ryan Gosling in an extraordinary performance as a man who drives for a living — as a stunt driver in movies, and as a getaway driver for hire. He seems to have no personal life, betrays no emotions, lives simply to function. When he begins to feel fondness for the little boy of his neighbor (Carey Mulligan), he grows involved in a $1 million heist that’s a test of his conscience and loyalties. It looks like a routine action picture, but believe me, it isn’t. Even the car chases look like the real thing. We care about them. We’re not just looking at technology. Rating: Three and a half stars. 100 minutes. (R) “Friends With Benefits” — Follows romcom formulas as if directed by an autopilot, but that’s not to say it isn’t fun. Mila Kunis plays Jamie, an executive headhunter in New York City. Justin Timberlake plays Dylan, the hotshot behind a popular website. They agree to have sex without emotional attachment, and you know how well that works. But they’re both the real thing when it

comes to light comedy. Not a great movie, but I enjoyed them in it. Rating: Three stars. 109 minutes. (R) “The Guard” — Brendan Gleeson is wonderful as an Irish cop with shaky standards; he steals drugs from accident victims, parties with hookers and deals in graft. But he loves his mother. Partnered against his will on a big drug case with an FBI agent (Don Cheadle), he rises to the occasion, but not before much dialogue of sly wit. A rich human comedy with a gripping ending and much humor along the way. Rating: Three and a half stars. 95 minutes. (R) “The Help” — A safe film about a volatile subject. Presenting itself as the story of how African-American maids in the South viewed their employers during Jim Crow days, it is equally the story of how they empowered a young white woman to write a best-seller about them. At the end, the story has punished the racist and redeemed those who have changed, but it’s still Jackson, Miss. Still, this is a good film, involving and wonderfully acted. I was drawn to the characters and moved. Wonderful performances by Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jessica Chastain. Rating: Three stars. 146 minutes. (PG-13) “I Don’t Know How She Does It” — “I Don’t Know How She Does It” is an old-fashioned spin on the manic pace of motherhood for today’s working woman. With high unemployment and those of us still working too scared to say “No” to the boss, “juggling” has become not just the norm, but positively blase over 20 years after “Parenthood” and “Baby Boom.” Sarah Jessica Parker gamely plays the slapstick, the little wardrobe disasters that anybody with kids will recognize. But she’s swimming

against a riptide of a script, a movie that no endless voiceover, no cute testimonial and no number of freeze frames — where she stops the action to address the camera — can save. She looks exhausted, first scene to last, and that fatigue spills off the screen onto us. Rating: Two stars. 90 minutes. (PG-13)

— Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel “Killer Elite” — Two teams of ex-SAS men find themselves on opposite sides of an ingenious plot. An oil sheik from Oman wants revenge for the murders of his sons. He kidnaps Hunter (Robert De Niro) to force Danny (Jason Statham) to come out of retirement and undertake the vengeance. Spike (Clive Owen) leads a team whose job is to protect former SAS men. The two teams find themselves in a diabolical cat-and-mouse game where we’re hard-pressed to divide the characters into good and bad guys. Rating: Three stars. 105 minutes. (R) “The Lion King 3-D” — “The Lion King” was the movie that Disney insiders regard as a high-water mark for traditional Disney animation, the exclamation point on the success story that began with “The Little Mermaid” and continued with “Beauty and the Beast.” That cell-animated (with some digital sequences) classic earns a nice 3-D dressing up in “The Ling King 3-D.” It still looks lovely, with beautifully drawn lions and hyenas — plus a warthog, a meerkat, a mandrill and a hornbill, and assorted other denizens of the African savannah. The wildebeest stampede is almost as novel and breathtaking as it was when the film was new. Rating: Three and a half stars. 89 minutes. (G)

Bend Marathon: Race by race The Bend Marathon will be staging three races in Central Oregon on Saturday. Here is a look at the schedule of events:

BEND MARATHON (26.2 MILES) Time: 9 a.m. Start: Village Green Community Park, Sisters Finish: Northwest Crossing Drive in west Bend Breaking down the race: The inaugural Bend Marathon will actually start in Sisters at Village Green Community Park, after which participants will make their way along a 26.2-mile route to Bend. The course mainly winds along backcountry roads that roughly parallel U.S. Highway 20. Along the way, runners will pass Tumalo Reservoir and Shevlin Park, as well as traverse a total of nine miles of gravel road before finishing in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing neighborhood Registration: Will be available in person through today at Fleet Feet Sports Bend and FootZone in downtown Bend Packet pickup: 3 to 6:30 p.m. today at Fleet Feet Sports Bend, 1320 N.W. Galveston Ave.; day-of-race pickup available beginning at 6:30 a.m. at the finish line in NorthWest Crossing

BEND MARATHON HALF MARATHON (13.1 MILES) Time: 9:30 a.m. Start and Finish: Northwest Crossing Drive in west Bend Breaking down the race: The course is a primarily out and back with a small loop section about midway between the start/finish line and the turnaround point. Half-marathon racers will start and finish in NorthWest Crossing before hitting Shevlin Park Road and then traveling along some quieter back roads northwest of Bend. Participants will turn around on Johnson Road before reaching Tumalo State Park and running the last six miles or so along the same course as the marathon Registration: Will be available in person through today at Fleet Feet Sports Bend and FootZone in downtown Bend Packet pickup: 3 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Fleet Feet Sports Bend, 1320 N.W. Galveston Ave.; day-of-race pickup available beginning at 6:30 a.m. at finish line in NorthWest Crossing

KIDS MARATHON (1.2 MILES) Time: 9:45 a.m. (approximately) Start and finish: Northwest Crossing Drive in west Bend Breaking down the race: The Kids Marathon is an event for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade who have been logging 25 miles during the weeks leading up to race day. They will complete the final 1.2 miles of their own marathon journeys on Saturday by running two laps of the NorthWest Crossing circuit that was used this past summer for the OBRA Criterium Championships and USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships cycling events Registration: $10, available at packet pickup, which will take place from 3 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Fleet Feet Sports Bend, 1320 N.W. Galveston Ave.

A tough 26 miles Organizers designed Saturday’s Bend Marathon to be a difficult run from Sisters to Bend By Amanda Miles The B ullet in

Make no mistake about it: The Bend Marathon will be no leisurely stroll. Of course, running 26.2 miles seldom is easy, but some marathons are more challenging than others. Set to make its Central Oregon debut on Saturday, the Bend Marathon has been designed to fall into the former category. “We wanted a hard course,” said race co-director Leslie Cogswell. “We wanted something different.” What Breakaway Promotions, the event-organizing company that is staging the Bend Marathon, has put together is a course that will include more than 1,400 feet of elevation gain from the start in Sisters to the finish in west Bend. The race, to be run mostly on back roads west of U.S. Highway 20, starts at 9 a.m. at Village Green Community Park in Sisters and ends in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing neighborhood near the La Rosa restaurant. In between, most of the climbing takes place after the 10-mile mark. Though many of the inclines are not overly steep, they do hit grades of up to about 8.5 percent for a couple of short stretches. As of about 10 days ago, some 125 participants had signed up to race in the Bend Marathon and its half marathon counterpart, according to Cogswell. She said she expected that number to reach about 200, but with the difficult course, she added that she is not surprised by the relatively modest turnout. “We don’t expect to ever be huge,” Cogswell explained.

Running a marathon: Race-day tips 1. Go out conservatively.

2. Stick with what is familiar on race day.

3. Dress for the weather.

This is a wise idea for any marathon (or half marathon, for that matter), but it is particularly true for the Bend Marathon, which includes more than 1,400 feet of elevation gain — most of which comes after the 10-mile mark. “This is one marathon that you need to conserve for because it’s just kind of (rolling) the whole way through,” says Leslie Cogswell, Bend Marathon race co-director. If you have a goal pace, try to run the first few miles or so a little slower and then gradually ease into that goal pace. You can always speed up if you feel good at the end of the race, which is more likely to occur if you go out too slow rather than too fast.

If you have just purchased some new running apparel items or a new pair of running shoes, think again before donning them on race day. “You want to know how everything’s going to perform,” Cogswell explains. Changing something on race day can lead to all sorts of unpleasantness — from chafing to blisters — so stick to clothing and shoes that are broken in. Ideally, you should have already completed at least one or two long runs in the gear you plan to wear on race day so you know what to expect. Running a marathon is hard enough even when you do not have to deal with surprises.

Fall often provides ideal conditions for marathon running, but the season does present some considerations. As of Thursday the high temperature for Saturday in Sisters and Bend is forecast to reach the low 70s, while lows could easily dip into the 40s. With a 9 a.m. start time for the marathon, participants could endure quite a range of temperatures before they hit the finish line, so plan accordingly. Race organizers will have a gear dropoff at the start in Sisters, so you can wear layers until just before the race starts, or you can choose to remove some of those layers as you run along. Items such as hats, gloves and arm warmers can prove useful, as runners can shed them as they heat up, and they are light enough to carry or tuck into clothing.

A road marathon was staged in Central Oregon from 2000 to 2002; it was called the Bendistillery “It Goes Down Easy” Marathon. Above, runners run near Mount Bachelor in the 2000 edition of the race.

Marathon Continued from previous page That said, Breakaway Promotions knows how to grow a marathon. The company first put on the Columbia Gorge Marathon in the Hood River area two years ago with a field of a few hundred participants. That number swelled to about 1,000 in 2010, Cogswell said, and she expects at least 1,500 for this year’s race, scheduled for Oct. 23. While Bend Marathon runners will have to traverse an undulating course, the scenery could make up for their troubles. Cogswell noted that marathon participants will encounter mountain vistas of the Three Sisters, Mount Bachelor and Broken Top. They will also run past the

scenic Tumalo Reservoir about halfway through the course. “It’s so pretty,” Cogswell said of the route. If the challenge and the views sound enticing, registration is still available. Prospective participants can register in person today at running shoe stores Fleet Feet Sports Bend and FootZone in downtown Bend. Packet pickup will also take place today at Fleet Feet, from 3 to 6:30 p.m., and starting at 6:30 a.m. at the finish line on Saturday. Of course, if the full marathon sounds like too much of a challenge, runners can opt for the half marathon, which will start at 9:30 a.m. at NorthWest Crossing. That race follows a mostly out-and-back course. Runners will turn around on Johnson Road before reaching

Tumalo State Park and will run the final six miles along the same course as the marathoners. Though it may require a little work, spectators can cheer on their favorite runners from multiple vantage points, which can be more difficult in races with larger fields. “Where I really would like spectators is that hill coming up from Shevlin (Park),” Cogswell said of the short but steep pitch on the west edge of Bend along Shevlin Park Road just south of the park entrance. “That would be a good spot.” The route is also a “great bike course,” Cogswell noted. But cyclists who plan to follow the race on a road bike should keep in mind that the course includes two stretches of gravel road: from Mile 1.1 to Mile 4.6, and from Mile 8.4 to Mile 14.5.

Filling out the event is the Kids Marathon, for boys and girls of elementary school age. Participants in this event have been tracking their miles in the weeks leading up to race day, with the goal of running a total of 25 miles. They get to conclude their own “marathon” with a 1.2-mile run in NorthWest Crossing by completing two laps of the circuit course used this summer for cycling races such as the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association Criterium Championships and the USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships. Registration is available through race day for the Kids Marathon, though the field is limited to 200 participants. The entire Bend Marathon event serves as a fundraiser for The Education Foundation for the Bend-La Pine Schools, which provides an Activity Fee Scholar-

ship Fund for area students who cannot afford the registration fees required to participate in school sports and other school activities. Bend Marathon participants who fundraised above a certain dollar amount were eligible for free entry to the race. Of course, everyone who races on Saturday will be eligible for a lot of hurt. For some of the marathon- and half-marathon-running population, Cogswell said, that’s exactly what they want. “There’s a portion of those looking for not a (personal record),” Cogswell said, “but just a good experience and a challenge.” Amanda Miles can be reached at 541383-0393 or at amiles@bendbulletin. com.
