TERREBONNE — n obscure water board in Terrebonne has become the focus of a battle over growth — and the target of complaints filed with the state. The five-member board of the Terrebonne Domestic Water District oversees a work force of just two people. Board members decide issues like disputed water bills, new hookups and whether — as discussed at a public meeting last week — a resident’s proposed fence will lead to his dogs attacking the district’s meter-reader. But for more than a year, the main issue swirling around the board — the only government Terrebonne can call its own — has been whether to incorporate the town into a city to enable growth. The debate over incorporation has led to a new majority on the water board that is solidly anti-growth. It’s also led to signs in yards, and public meetings marked by shouting, personal attacks and alleged threats. Some residents say the dispute — which continues to reverberate in the form of complaints to state agencies — shows how democracy works in a small

Chuck Forward, an unemployed former union representative who was ousted as board chairman last May, says he and other members of a group that wanted to explore cityhood were foiled by a “bigotry of ideas.” He says he dropped the effort because he was so tired of personal attacks. Others say the recent water board election and a series of public meetings held by Deschutes County planners demonstrate that the residents of Terrebonne are solidly against change. And they say the recent complaints against the water board, filed by a local developer, Mike Walker, are about payback. See Terrebonne / A4

REYNOSA, Mexico — The big philosophical question in this gritty border town does not concern trees falling in the forest but bodies falling on the concrete: Does a shootout actually happen if the newspapers print nothing about it, the radio and television stations broadcast nothing, and the authorities never confirm that it occurred? As two powerful groups of drug

traffickers engaged in fierce urban combat in Reynosa in recent weeks, the reality that many residents were living and the one that the increasingly timid news media and the imageconscious politicians portrayed were difficult to reconcile. “You begin to wonder what the truth is,” said one of Reynosa’s frustrated and fearful residents, Eunice Pena, a professor of communications. “Is it what you saw, or what the media and the officials say? You even wonder if

WASHINGTON — A long-sought facility for returning military veterans in Bend likely won’t be ready in time for the return of hundreds of soldiers next month, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Now, a local veterans group and U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden are urging the federal government to speed things up. Central Oregon military veterans fought for years for a VA facility on the east side of the Cascades. They declared a victory last August, when the VA announced it would place a vet center in Bend, where veterans could receive mental health screening, therapy and other services. But now, seven months later, the department is in just the early stages of finding a facility to house the center. The timing matters, veterans and Wyden say, because about 500 soldiers in the Oregon National Guard’s 41st Infantry Brigade Combat Team — which includes the Bend-based 1st Squadron, 82nd Cavalry — are scheduled to return to the states in mid-April. About 110 of those are from Central Oregon. See Vet center / A6

You can see the bodies. You know it’s bad.” See Drug cartels / A7

One fast-growing American industry has become a conspicuous beneficiary of the recession: for-profit colleges and trade schools. At institutions that train students for careers in areas like health care, computers and food service, enrollments are soaring as people anxious about weak job prospects borrow aggressively to pay tuition exceeding $30,000 a year. But the profits have come at substantial taxpayer expense while often delivering dubious benefits to students, according to academics and advocates for greater oversight of financial aid. Critics say many schools exaggerate the value of their degree programs, selling young people on dreams of middleclass wages while setting them up for default on untenable debts, low-wage work and a struggle to avoid poverty. And the schools are harvesting growing federal student aid dollars, including Pell grants awarded to low-income students. See Trade schools / A5

Vatican, defending pope, offers concessions over abuse

OBAMA’S SWEEPING EDUCATION OVERHAUL

Target: No Child Left Behind President to send his plan retaining testing but raising expectations to Congress this week

Bulletin wire reports As new details emerged on allegations of child sexual abuse by a priest in the Munich archdiocese then led by Pope Benedict XVI, the Vatican spoke out on Saturday to protect the pope against what it called an aggressive campaign against him in his native Germany. At the same time, a highranking official overseeing Vatican investigations acknowledged Saturday that 3,000 cases of suspected The Vatican abuse of mi- sprang to nors had come Benedict to its attention XVI’s defense in the past de- Saturday cade, of which amid accusa20 percent had tions that he been brought to tried to hide trial in Vatican reports of courts. The Vat- sexual abuse ican also insist- in Germany ed that church before beconfidentiality coming pope. doesn’t prevent bishops from reporting abuse to police. In a note read Saturday on Vatican Radio, the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said it was “evident that in recent days there are those who have tried, with a certain aggressive tenacity ... to find elements to involve the Holy Father personally in issues of abuse.” He added, “It is clear that those efforts have failed.” In Germany, a man who said he was sexually abused by a priest there in 1979 said Saturday that church officials had told him then that the priest would not be allowed to work with children again. Instead, the priest was allowed, under the future pope’s watch, to resume full duties almost immediately, where he went on to abuse more children. The church also sought to defend the pope against criticism that a Vatican rule requiring secrecy in abuse cases was tantamount to obstruction of justice in civil courts. Monsignor Charles Scicluna, the director of a tribunal inside the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican’s doctrinal arm, dismissed as “false and calumnious” accusations that Benedict covered up abuse cases when he oversaw investigations for four years as prefect of that congregation before becoming pope.

By Sam Dillon New York Times News Service

The Obama administration on Saturday called for a broad overhaul of President George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind law, proposing to reshape divisive provisions that encouraged instructors to teach to tests, narrowed the curriculum and labeled one in three American schools as failing. By announcing that he would send his education blueprint to Congress on Monday, President Barack Obama returned to a campaign promise to repair the sprawling federal law that affects each of the nation’s 100,000 public schools. His plan strikes a careful balance, retaining some key features of the Bush-era law, including its requirement for annual reading and math tests, while proposing far-reaching changes. The administration would replace the law’s pass-fail school grading system with one that would measure individual students’ academic growth, and judge schools based not on test scores alone but also using indicators like pupil attendance, graduation rates and learning climate. In addition, Obama would replace the law’s requirement that every American child reach proficiency in reading and math, which administration officials have called utopian, with a new national target that could prove equally elusive: that all students should graduate from high school prepared for college and a career. “Under these guidelines, schools that achieve excellence or show real progress will be rewarded,” the president said in his weekly radio address, “and local districts will be encouraged to commit to change in schools that are clearly letting their students down.”

Reaction While leading congressional Democrats and some governors, including Republicans, praised the plan, the nation’s two major teachers unions did not. “We are disappointed,” said Dennis Van Roekel, president of the Na-

The Associated Press file photo

In January 2009, President George W. Bush marked the anniversary of his No Child Left Behind education law at a school in Philadelphia. On Saturday, the Obama administration announced changes to the law, proposing to eliminate provisions that have labeled one in three schools as failing.

Lawmakers set to take up education reform this week In the proposed dismantling of the No Child Left Behind law, education officials would move away from punishing schools that don’t meet benchmarks and focus on rewarding schools for progress, particularly with poor and minority students. President Barack Obama intends to send a rewrite of the law to Congress on Monday.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM OBAMA’S BLUEPRINT

WHAT’S NEXT

• Standards for college or career: The proposed changes call for states to adopt standards that ensure students are ready for college or a career rather than grade-level proficiency — the focus of the current law. By 2020, all students graduating from high school would need to be ready for college or a career. That’s a shift from calling for all students to be performing at grade level in reading and math by 2014. • Beyond reading and math: States would be allowed to use subjects other than these two as part of their measurements for meeting federal goals, pleasing many education groups that have said No Child Left Behind encouraged teachers not to focus on history, art, science, social studies and other important subjects. • Federal funding: For the first time in 45 years, the White House is proposing a $4 billion increase in education spending, most of which would go to increase the competition among states for grant money and move away from formula-based funding. • Carrots and sticks: Give more rewards — money and flexibility — to high-poverty schools that are seeing big gains in student achievement and use them as a model for other schools. Punish the lowest-performing 5 percent of schools using aggressive measures, such as having the state take over federal funding for poor students, replacing the principal and half the teaching staff or closing the school altogether.

Obama’s blueprint goes before the House Education and Labor Committee on Wednesday as Obama pushes Congress to reauthorize the education law this year. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has been working behind the scenes on rewriting the law with a bipartisan group of senior lawmakers in both chambers, and administration officials say they hope to complete work on a new bill by August, when the elections will dominate the congressional agenda.

A SHORT HISTORY OF FEDERAL EDUCATION EFFORTS The nation’s first federal law — Elementary and Secondary Education Act — was passed in 1965 as part of Lyndon B. Johnson’s war on poverty. The law has been reauthorized several times since, most recently in 2001 under President George W. Bush. The No Child law, passed in 2001 by bipartisan majorities, focused the nation’s attention on closing achievement gaps between minority and white students. The law was criticized by educators for focusing too much on testing and not enough on learning. • What’s to become of No Child Left Behind? Obama’s education secretary has said the “No Child” brand will be dropped because it is associated with punishing schools for not reaching benchmarks. He said the administration will work with Congress to come up with a new name. — From wire reports

IN CONGRESS

tional Education Association. Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, said of the proposal, “This doesn’t make sense. From everything that we’ve seen, this blueprint places 100 percent of the responsibility on teachers, and gives them zero percent of the authority,” Weingarten said. Rep. John Kline of Minnesota,

the top Republican on the House education committee, was also skeptical. “From 30,000 feet, the blueprint seems to set a lot of right goals,” Kline said. “Yet, when we drill down to the details, we are looking at a heavier federal hand than many of us wish to see.” Administration officials laid out their proposals in briefings on Friday and Saturday with gover-

nors, lawmakers, education organizations and journalists. Meanwhile, Sen. Scott Brown, recently elected from Massachusetts, said in a Republican response to the president’s remarks that Obama in the first year of his administration spent too much time and energy on health care and other issues, and not enough at trying to end the recession.

10 years of abuse In a rare and unusually frank public interview that appeared on the front page of L’Avvenire, the Italian Bishops Conference newspaper on Saturday and was circulated by the Vatican Press Office, Scicluna acknowledged that the Vatican had received about 3,000 accusations of abuse of minors by priests in the past decade, 80 percent of them from the U.S. He said that about 300 priests had been accused of pedophilia in the past nine years. The cases involved both diocesan and religious priests, and regarded acts committed over the last 50 years, he said. He added that only 20 percent of priests had been tried — mostly in local dioceses but sometimes in Rome — and some of them had been acquitted. He said that 60 percent of the total cases had not come to trial, largely because of the advanced age of the accused, but that they faced other “administrative and disciplinary provisions,” including being required to live in seclusion and prohibition from celebrating Mass and hearing confession. “It’s true that there has been no formal condemnation,” Scicluna said, adding, “It must be made absolutely clear that in these cases, some of which are particularly sensational ... no absolution has taken place.” The Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, where Benedict served as archbishop from 1977 to 1982, says that a working group, established last month after allegations of abuse in a church-run school, would be expanded to include an external, independent legal office.

FEDERAL APPEALS COURT

Obama picks young, liberal scholar By Mark Sherman The Associated Press

Los Angeles Times LEADVILLE, Colo. — For the parents of Jamie PaulinRamirez, the news late Saturday that Irish police had released their daughter from custody did little to alleviate the question of how she may have become involved with suspects in a plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist targeted by Islamic radicals. When word of her release reached this mountain town, Paulin-Ramirez’s stepfather, George Mott, said it was “both good news and bad news.” Mott and his wife, Christine, said they still could not reach their daughter and feared that she and her 6-year-old son, Christian, may still be involved with radical Islamists she had followed to Ireland last year. Earlier Saturday, the Motts had described their daughter, a convert to Islam, as a lonely woman looking for acceptance.

N  B Blagojevich lawyers request trial delay CHICAGO — Lawyers for the ousted governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, say they need more time to wade through millions of pages of documents and hundreds of hours of secretly recorded telephone calls in preparation for his federal corruption trial. How much time? Until Nov. 3, the day after Election Day. Prosecutors did not comment on the defense motion, which a judge is expected to consider this week.

Sergeant discharged under ‘don’t ask’ Jene Newsome played by the rules as an Air Force sergeant: She never told anyone in the military she was a lesbian. The 28-year-old’s honorable discharge under the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy came only after police officers in Rapid City, S.D., saw an Iowa marriage certificate in her home and told the nearby Ellsworth Air Force Base. Newsome and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint against the western South Dakota police department, claiming the officers violated her privacy when they informed the military about her sexual orientation. The case also highlights concerns over the ability of third parties to “out” service members, especially as the Pentagon has started reviewing the 1993 “don’t ask, don’t tell” law.

Goodwin Liu is a law professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

WASHINGTON — Thirteen months into his presidency, Barack Obama finally gave liberal supporters the kind of judicial nominee they had sought and conservatives feared. Goodwin Liu, 39, is an unabashed liberal legal scholar who, if confirmed, could become a force on the federal appeals court for decades. There’s talk that in time, the Rhodes Scholar, former high court clerk, and current assistant dean and law professor at

the University of California, Berkeley, could be the first person of Asian descent chosen for the Supreme Court. “I can easily imagine him” as a high court nominee, said Erwin Chemerinsky, a Liu supporter and dean of the law school at the University of California, Irvine. Obama’s choice of Liu for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco drew quick and vociferous criticism from conservatives. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary

Committee, described Liu as “far outside the mainstream of American jurisprudence.” For the first time, Obama seemed to be taking a page from the playbook of recent Republican presidents who nominated conservatives in their 30s and 40s with the expectation they would have enduring influence in setting policy on the federal bench. Whether a string of younger, more ideological nominees will follow from the Democratic president is unknown.

In Afghanistan, sophisticated Taliban tactics challenge U.S. in new ways By Roy Gutman McClatchy-Tribune News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan — A decade ago, when the Taliban controlled the Afghan government, their militiamen — barely motivated, untrained conscripts — tried for five years to seize control of the entire country from more moderate forces but didn’t succeed, even with the help of Osama bin Laden’s Arab and other foreign volunteers. Today, although the United States and more than three dozen NATO allies and other countries are supporting Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the Taliban dominate a growing swath of territory, and their power trumps the government’s in three-quarters of the country. Although they’re often portrayed as mindless fanatics, the militant Islamists’ “life experience” from their years in the wilderness, their study of American military tactics and their analysis of the Karzai government’s shortcomings have helped reverse their fortunes, U.S. intelligence experts say. With President Barack Obama sending at least 30,000 additional American troops to knock the Taliban off balance and a U.S.-led offensive in Helmand province, a better understanding of today’s Taliban is central to the effort to defeat them and to begin withdrawing some American troops from Afghanistan in summer 2011. While much is made of the recent arrests of Taliban leaders in Pakistan and the deaths of others in U.S. unmanned drone attacks, the group appears to be a movement in transition, with greater sophistication along with limited central control and considerable autonomy for its local commanders in Afghanistan. Western intelligence officials cite varied signs of the “new” Taliban: • During and after every

Coordinated blasts kill at least 33 The governor of Afghanistan’s Kandahar province is demanding more troops to provide security after 12 explosions in the largest southern city killed dozens of people. Gov. Turyakai Wesa says he is talking to the central government in Kabul about getting Afghan military reinforcements following the coordinated attacks that killed at least 33 people, including 10 attending a wedding. He told reporters early today that he also wants to coordinate with NATO forces to improve security. — The Associated Press military operation, top Taliban leaders — who intelligence officials think move along the Afghan-Pakistani border but

sometimes retreat to Karachi and other Pakistani cities — routinely run circles around the Karzai government with rapidresponse public relations. • Some Taliban still fight as they did a decade ago, in flipflops and traditional baggy pants, but the hard-core “Taliban cavalry” is equipped with North Face jackets, good boots, warm clothing and swift motorbikes purchased in Pakistan. • The Taliban made some 8,000 improvised explosive devices last year, an astonishing rate of almost 22 a day. “An enemy that can generate 8,000 IEDS and bring 8,000 IEDS to bear and have a major effect, we ought to hire the J-4, the logistician,” said a top general with the U.S.-led International Security Assistance Force. • Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar issued a 67article code of conduct for his fighters last summer, ordering them to protect the civilian population.

Progressive PR firm declares for office Murray Hill might be the perfect candidate for this political moment: young, bold, mediasavvy, a Washington outsider eager to reshape the way things are done in the nation’s capital. And if these are cynical times, well, then, it’s safe to say Murray Hill is by far the most cynical. That’s because this little upstart is, in fact, a startup. Murray Hill is actually Murray Hill Inc., a small, 5-year-old Silver Spring, Md., public relations company that is seeking office to prove a point (and perhaps get a little attention). After the Supreme Court declared that corporations have the same rights as individuals when it comes to funding political campaigns, the self-described progressive firm took what it considers the next logical step: declaring for office.

FDA urges stronger spice safeguards The Food and Drug Administration is re-examining the safety of a culinary staple found in every restaurant, food manufacturing plant and home kitchen pantry: spices. In the middle of a nationwide outbreak of salmonella illness linked to black and red pepper — and after 16 separate U.S. recalls since 2001 of tainted spices ranging from basil to sage — federal regulators met last week with the spice industry to figure out ways to make the supply safer. — From wire reports

Hearts may swoon along with the stock market, study says By Marilynn Marchione The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Stock market slides may hurt more than your savings. New research suggests they might prompt heart attacks. Duke University researchers found a link between how a key stock index performed and how many heart attacks were treated at their North Carolina hospital shortly after the recession began in December 2007 through July 2009, when signs of recovery emerged. The trend weakened after they did a second analysis taking into account seasons of the year. Some research suggests heart attacks are more common in winter, meaning the initial finding could have been a statistical fluke. However, leading scientists unconnected with the work said they found it plausible and worth further research in a nationwide study. “I do think there’s merit to their first-round conclusion,” said Dr. James McClurken of Temple University in Philadelphia. He is chairman of the American College of Cardiology’s annual conference, where the study results were released Saturday.

Dr. Janet Wright, vice president of quality and science for the cardiology college, agreed. “This is an intriguing study and yet another example of how stress can affect a person’s heart health,” she said. “It is important to be aware that personal stress-

ors — in this case an economic one — can be a trigger for cardiac events.” Earlier studies have found higher rates of heart problems after World Cup soccer matches, earthquakes, Hurricane Katrina and other stressful events.

Kissinger recovering from stomach pains in Seoul By Jungmin Hong Bloomberg News

SEOUL, South Korea — Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is in stable condition in a South Korean hospital after being admitted with abdominal pains Saturday morning. Kissinger isn’t in danger and is recovering, Choi Kingdegar, a spokesman Henry at Yonsei Kissinger University’s Severa nce Hospital in western Seoul, said by phone Saturday. Results of his examination weren’t available yet, Choi said. Kissinger, 86, is suffering from a “stomach illness” and being treated for dehydration, Steven Pearson of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars said in an interview in Hong Kong. Kissinger had been scheduled to host a dinner for the Center in Hong Kong Saturday, Pearson said. “It sounded like a 24-hour bug or something he ate,” Pearson said.

Terrebonne Continued from A1 “I feel like I’m being targeted,” said 64-year-old Kay Walters, the new water board chairwoman who also led the fight against incorporation. “I know that some of the builders would like me to go away because they want their hands on properties they can break down to small housing developments.” Walker, for his part, says he just doesn’t like the direction the board is going. An ex-cop, he filed a complaint with the Oregon Secretary of State’s office against Walters’ son, Jay, who ousted Forward from the water board. Walker accused Jay Walters of “false swearing” by signing a state form that he was qualified to run for the board when, at the time, he couldn’t take the seat. That’s because a past felony conviction for methamphetamine delivery meant Walters couldn’t be bonded as required by the water district’s bylaws. Walker also has filed a complaint against Kay Walters with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission, accusing the new board chairwoman of a conflict of interest. Specifically, he says she shouldn’t have participated in the board’s efforts to fire the district’s insurance agent, get a new policy and change the district bylaws so her son, once elected, could take office. The bylaws were changed so board members no longer need to be bonded. Walker’s complaint against Jay Walters has been rejected, but the complaint against his mother, Kay Walters, remains active, according to the state.

Small town, big politics For passers-by, Terrebonne is little more than the area where a blinking yellow light marks an intersection on U.S. Highway 97, six miles north of Redmond. Founded in 1909 as a railroad town, county planners call it an unincorporated “rural service center.” It boasts two grocery stores, a gas station, a post office, three churches and a couple of restaurants. The county estimated Terrebonne’s population at 808, though several hundred more live on its outskirts. About 400 students between kindergarten and eighth grade attend Terrebonne Community School. Some go to Terrebonne for the rock climbing; three miles to the northeast lies the picturesque cliffs of Smith Rock State Park. Others go for the rural, unspoiled surroundings. Nike founder Phil Knight and his wife, Penny, keep a horse ranch there. Geology explains why Terrebonne remains a small town. Much of the community rests on 18 inches or less of soil covering a rocky plateau, making septic a challenge. And it has no sewer system. Some people, though, want a sewer system so more land can be developed. They think cityhood could help Terrebonne tap federal grants and better control its own destiny. In January 2009, a group of about 20 people began meeting to explore the idea, calling themselves the Future Action Committee of Terrebonne, or FACT. Forward, a 10-year veteran of the water board, served as spokesman for the incorporation group. But the effort foundered in the face of vocal opposition. By April, thanks in part to Kay Walters’ mobilizing people to attend the group’s meetings at the Grange Hall, about 60 people opposing the idea were showing up to criticize the effort, saying cityhood and sewer service would inevita-

FRICTION OVER GROWTH

Dave Molony, a 61-year-old war veteran from Prineville who owns this piece of property in Terrebonne, says that at a public meeting over growth last spring, Jay Walters took offense at Molony’s criticism of Terrebonne’s “small-town attitude.” Afterward, Molony says, Walters said “he was going to kick my butt.” Says Walters, 44: “I may have been boisterous at times ... but I’ve done nothing wrong.” bly raise taxes. At the same time, many of the same issues were debated at meetings held by Deschutes County planners to craft a Terrebonne Community Plan charting future growth. Not only that, but Jay Walters, a 44-year-old seasonal worker at Smith Rock State Park, ran for the water board seat held by Forward. Walters said he did it to protect the area against growth, incorporation and high water rates. He said he was not about to stand by while “big money” overwhelmed the will of the “common people.” “Where does it stop? How long until you get run out of Terrebonne because of taxes?” he said in a recent interview. “Nobody should have to move from Terrebonne. We’ve got a nice life here.” Forward says he’s never seen public meetings get so nasty. And other members of the incorporation group agreed. “They all wanted to argue and shut people down,” said Larry Wiehr, a 71-year-old retired auto mechanic who lives just south of town. Kay Walters agreed that the anti-growth side dominated both sets of meetings. “We got a pretty good turnout and a pretty angry side that said, ‘We don’t want to change, we don’t want another government over us telling us what we can do and taxing us.’ ... People took it to the personal level toward people who were on the committee.” Some people, she said, “got loud and boisterous about it.” Several people say one of the louder voices was Kay’s son, Jay, a small mountain of a man at 6 feet 2 inches and more than 300 pounds. Dave Molony, a 61-year-old one-armed war veteran who owns land in town, says that at a meeting last spring, Jay Walters took offense at Molony’s criticism of “the small-town attitude.” Afterward, as Molony tells it, Walters followed Molony into the parking lot and said “he was going to kick my butt.” At that point, Walters threatened Walker, the developer, when he tried to intervene, both Molony and Walker say. Wiehr reports a similar encounter with Walters after another meeting. “He cussed me out, and he said he wanted to try to whup my butt right out in the yard. ... He’s a great big honker. He’s got a temper on him. “I kind of laughed at him and

told him to get a life,” Wiehr added. “He kept swearing so I walked away.” Asked whether he threatened the men, Jay Walters said: “I may have been boisterous at times ... Yeah, there were some heated discussions and some misunderstandings, but I’ve done nothing wrong and was no more rude to them than they were to me.” When he’s representing the water board or working at the state park, he has to tolerate disrespect, he said. “But off the job, no, I don’t have to take that rude (behavior), calling me names and telling me I’m an idiot and all that b.s.” Despite what his critics say, Walters was popular with Terrebonne voters. He was elected to the water board in May with an overwhelming 75 percent of the vote, garnering 111 votes to Forward’s 40. In June, Forward says, he decided he’d had enough of the cityhood drive. He was disheartened by a sign that appeared on his neighbor’s property facing his house: “Love us as we are — or move.” He sent Kay Walters, who made the sign, an e-mail asking her to take it down and promising to step down from the incorporation drive. He wrote, “I found it difficult to explain to my son about how disagreeing with an idea can lead to bigotry, hatred and anger for some people, and I do not wish to continue to try to explain your actions to him.” Kay Walters wrote back that Forward’s neighbor had put the sign up, not her — but she felt Forward’s dropping out of the incorporation movement was a smart move. “I believe it is in your best interest to distance you from the remaining group who is seeking information and action to incorporate Terrebonne,” she wrote, according to a copy of the email. “I believe it will get very ugly before it is over.”

Criminal record raises concerns Instead of the situation getting uglier, the incorporation movement, without a spokesman, just shut down. Forward said his allies stopped going to meetings because they were intimidated, and turned off by the nastiness and abuse. The county then issued a draft version of its Terrebonne community plan that presented the anti-growth side with another

victory. The plan concluded that the public meetings displayed “an overwhelming desire for little or no change in Terrebonne.” Still, that was not the end of things. The board had a problem because the district’s bylaws require that board members be bonded. When Jay Walters was elected, the board’s longtime insurance agent told the board the 1999 felony conviction for meth delivery meant the district’s insurance company wouldn’t issue a bond. The conviction was based on an arrest by Bend police after Jay had bought more than 3 ounces of the drug from his brother, who was also convicted. In fact, Jay’s criminal record spans a decade, dating to the late ’80s, and includes numerous arrests on charges including menacing, harassment, assault and resisting arrest, court records show. Mike Walker, who worked for seven years as a police officer in

Glendale, Calif., filed a complaint in an effort to get Jay Walters off the board. He accused Walters of lying, in papers filed with the Secretary of State’s office, about being qualified to serve. Walters responded that he hadn’t lied; he just didn’t realize his conviction would be a problem. The state rejected the complaint, saying there was no proof Walters had intentionally deceived anyone. Walker filed another complaint with the state’s ethics commission, saying that since Jay Walters still lives with his mother, Kay Walters had a conflict of interest and should have stayed out of the subsequent discussion. Faced with Jay’s predicament, the board changed the district’s bylaws so bonding wasn’t required. It also fired the district’s agent and hired a new one who obtained a different type of insurance for the district, rather than bonding. Walker, who lives outside of town but owns land in Terrebonne, says he filed the complaints because it’s a “disgrace” that an ex-felon is on the board. “I don’t care who’s on that board other than I think the community is better than having a convicted felon on there,” he said. “I don’t think it reflects well.” Asked about the complaints, Jay Walters said he has paid his debt to society. In addition to drug rehab, he took an anger management course and says he hasn’t touched drugs, alcohol or even caffeine in a decade. He says his service on the water board is intended to give back to the community. “I may be one out of 1,000 or one out of 10,000 people that accomplishes a task such as this,” Walters says of his successful rehabilitation. “And you know, I’m awful damn proud of it. ... I really believe that everybody deserves a second chance.” He noted that he, alone among the board members, has returned a $250-a-year stipend that goes with the job. “I’m a common person, and that’s why I relate to the problems of the people out here,” he said. Kay Walters says the water board vote amounted to a referen-

dum on her son’s character. The district’s water users “have all known him since he was a baby,” she said. David Dow, a retired truck driver who is the water board’s treasurer and one of the Walters’ neighbors, called Jay Walters conscientious and a “good, solid young man.” “Mr. Walker apparently feels that anyone who has ever made a mistake is unfit for public service, which I’m very glad that Oregon doesn’t feel that way — because we’d lose an awful lot of good people if it did,” Dow said. Molony, for his part, said he has no hard feelings toward Jay Walters. He said his main concern is that he doesn’t think an antigrowth advocate should be sitting on the water board. Jay Walters, however, said he won’t let his personal beliefs interfere with his ability to be fair as a board member. “I will hear all sides of everything. “The people who want incorporation, I have no ill feelings toward them. This is America, everybody’s got a right to their opinion,” he added. “I just want to move on with stuff because there is more important business at hand than just rehashing and rehashing stuff.”

What’s next The county plans to hold one more planning meeting in Terrebonne on April 8, before adopting a community plan to preserve “its unique rural character.” Larry Wiehr, however, hopes Terrebonne is not done thinking about cityhood. Incorporating could help him subdivide his 80 acres and provide him the financial ability to build a home to retire in. “We’re going to try to get it going again,” he said.

Trade schools Continued from A1 “If these programs keep growing, you’re going to wind up with more and more students who are graduating and can’t find meaningful employment,” said Rafael Pardo, a professor at Seattle University School of Law and an expert on educational finance. “They can’t generate income needed to pay back their loans, and they’re going to end up in financial distress.” For-profit trade schools have long drawn accusations that they overpromise and underdeliver, but the woeful economy has added to the industry’s opportunities along with the risks to students, according to education experts. They say these schools have exploited the recession as a lucrative recruiting device while tapping a larger pool of federal student aid. “They tell people, ‘If you don’t have a college degree, you won’t be able to get a job,’” said Amanda Wallace, who worked in the financial aid and admissions offices at the Knoxville, Tenn., branch of ITT Technical Institute, a chain of schools that charges roughly $40,000 for two-year associate degrees in computers and electronics. “They tell them, ‘You’ll be making beaucoup dollars afterward, and you’ll get all your financial aid covered.’” Wallace left her job at ITT in 2008 after five years because she was uncomfortable with what she considered deceptive recruiting, which she said masked the likelihood that graduates would earn too little to repay their loans. As a financial aid officer, Wallace was supposed to counsel students. But candid talk about job prospects and debt obligations risked the wrath of management, she said. “If you said anything that went against what the recruiter said, they would threaten to fire you,” Wallace said. “The representatives would have already conned them into doing it, and you had to just keep your mouth shut.” A spokeswoman for the school’s owner, ITT Educational Services, Lauren Littlefield, said the company had no comment. The for-profit educational industry says it is fulfilling a vital social function, supplying job training that provides a way up the economic ladder. “When the economy is rough and people are threatened with unemployment, they look to education as the way out,” said Harris Miller, president of the Career College Association, which represents approximately 1,400 such institutions. “We’re preparing people for careers.” Concerned about aggressive marketing practices, the Obama administration is toughening rules that restrict institutions that receive federal student aid from paying their admissions recruiters on the basis of enrollment numbers. The administration is also tightening regulations to ensure that vocational schools that receive aid dollars prepare students for “gainful employment.” Under a proposal being floated by the Department of Education, programs would be barred from loading students with more debt than justified by the likely salaries of the jobs they would pursue. “During a recession, with increased demand for education and more anxiety about the ability to get a job, there is a heightened level of hazard,” said Robert Shireman, a deputy undersecretary of education. “There is a lot of Pell grant money out there, and we need to make sure it’s being used effectively.” The administration’s push has provoked fierce lobbying from the for-profit educational industry, which is seeking to maintain flexibility in the rules.

A lucrative business The stakes are enormous: Forprofit schools have long derived the bulk of their revenue from federal loans and grants, and the percentages have been climbing sharply. The Career Education Corp., a publicly traded global giant, last year reported revenue of $1.84 billion. Roughly 80 percent came from federal loans and grants, according to BMO Capital Markets, a research and trading firm. That was up from 63 percent in 2007. The Apollo Group — which owns the for-profit University of Phoenix — derived 86 percent of its revenue from federal student aid last fiscal year, according to BMO. Two years earlier, it was 69 percent. For-profit schools have proved adept at capturing Pell grants, which are a centerpiece of the Obama administration’s efforts to make higher education more affordable. The administration increased financing for Pell grants by $17 billion for 2009 and 2010 as part of its $787 billion stimulus package. Two years ago, students at forprofit trade schools received $3.2 billion in Pell grants, according to

At Portland’s Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, tuition can be as high as $35,000 a year. Long accused of overpromising and underdelivering, commercial trade schools are under fire in this downturn because they are attracting more students and more Pell grants.

“During a recession, with increased demand for education and more anxiety about the ability to get a job, there is a heightened level of hazard.” — Robert Shireman, a deputy undersecretary of education the Department of Education, less than went to students at two-year public institutions. By the 2011-12 school year, the administration now estimates, students at forprofit schools should receive more than $10 billion in Pell grants, more than their public counterparts. (Those anticipated increases may shrink, depending on the outcome of wrangling in Congress over health care and student lending.) Enrollment at for-profit trade schools expanded about 20 percent a year the last two years, more than double the pace from 2001-07, according to the Career College Association. Miller, the association’s president, said for-profit schools were securing large numbers of Pell grants because their financial aid offices were diligent and because the schools served many low-income students. But financial aid experts say the surge of federal money reaching such institutions reflects something else: their aggressive, sometimes deceitful recruiting practices.

‘Ripe environment’ The increase in market opportunities for the for-profit education industry comes as governments spend less on education. In states like California, community colleges have been forced to cut classes just when demand is greatest. “This is creating a very ripe environment for the for-profit schools to pick off more students,” said Lauren Asher, president of the Institute for College Access & Success, a California- based nonprofit research group that seeks to make higher education more affordable. “The risks of exploitation are higher, and the potential rewards of those practices is higher.” For-profit culinary schools have long drawn criticism for leading students to rack up large debts. Now, they are enjoying striking growth. Enrollment at the 17 culinary schools of the Career Educa-

tion Corp. — most of them operated under the name Le Cordon Bleu — swelled by 31 percent in the final months of last year from a year earlier. When Andrew Newburg called the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland to seek information, he was feeling pressure to start a new career. It was 2008, and his Florida mortgage business was a casualty of the housing bust. An associate degree in culinary arts from a school in the food-obsessed Pacific Northwest seemed like a portal to a new career. The tuition was daunting — more than $41,000 for a 14-month program — but he said the admissions recruiter portrayed it as the entrance price to a stable life. “The recruiter said, ‘The way the economy is, with the recession, you need to have a safe way to be sure you will always have income,’” Newburg said. “‘In today’s market, chefs will always have a job, because people will always have to eat.’” According to Newburg, the recruiter promised the school would help him find a good job, most likely as a line cook, paying as much as $38,000 a year. Last summer, halfway through his program and already carrying debts of about $10,000, Newburg was alarmed to see many graduates taking jobs paying as little as $8 an hour washing dishes and busing tables, he said. He dropped out to avoid more debt. “They have a basic money-making machine,” Newburg said.

More bills than paychecks Career Education says admissions staff are barred from making promises about jobs or salaries. The school requires students to sign disclosures stating that they understand that its programs afford no guarantees. But promotional materials convey a sense of promise.

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 14, 2010 A5 double-digit interest rates — debt that even bankruptcy cannot erase without a lengthy, low-odds legal proceeding. When TJ Williams arrived in Portland from his home in Utah to enroll at Le Cordon Bleu in 2007, he was shocked by the terms of the aid package the school had arranged for him: One loan, for nearly $14,000, carried a $7,327 “finance charge” and a 13 percent interest rate. “They told me that halfway through the program, I could probably refinance to a lower rate,” he said. When he tried to refinance, the school turned him down, he says. Career Education declined to discuss Williams’ case, citing privacy restrictions and saying he had not signed a waiver. Williams has been jobless since last fall and recently returned to Utah, where he moved in with his mother.

After graduation “Our students are given the tools needed to become the future leaders in the industry,” proclaims the Le Cordon Bleu Web site. “Many graduates have attained positions of responsibility, visibility and entrepreneurship soon after completing their studies.” The job placement results that the school files with accrediting agencies suggest a different outcome. From July 2007 to June 2008, students who graduated from the culinary arts associate degree program landed jobs that paid an average of $21,000 a year, or about $10 an hour. Oregon’s minimum wage is $8.40 an hour. The job placement list is cited in a class-action lawsuit filed against the Portland school — previously known as Western Culinary Institute — by graduates who allege fraud, breach of contract and unlawful trade practices. Executives at Career Education denied the allegations while asserting it would be wrong to judge the school on the basis of its grads’ first jobs. “You go out in the industry and work your way up,” said Brian Williams, the company’s senior vice president for culinary arts. On a recent morning at the campus in Portland, hundreds of students donning chef’s whites labored in demonstration kitchens stocked with stainless steel countertops and commercial gas ranges. A chef inspected plates of boeuf Bourguignon and risotto Milanese. Students melted and pulled sugar into multicolored ribbons. Others used a chain saw to sculpture blocks of ice into decorative centerpieces. “It’s employable skills; that’s what we teach people here,” said the school president, Jon Alberts. “We try to give them as much of an industry experience in the classroom as possible.” But several local chefs said the program merely simulated what students could learn in entry-level jobs. “When they graduate and come in the kitchen, I tell them, ‘I’m going to treat you like you don’t know anything,’” said Kenneth Giambalvo, executive chef at Bluehour, an upscale restaurant in Portland’s Pearl District. “It doesn’t really give them any edge.” What the school does give many students is debt, often at

The Career Education Corp. e-mailed The New York Times names and contact information for four graduates “with whom we hope you’ll touch base for important perspective.” One came with a wrong number. A second had graduated 15 years ago. A third, Cherie Thompson, called the program “a really positive experience” but declined to discuss her debts or earnings. The fourth, Ericsel Tan, graduated in 2003 and later earned $42,000 a year overseeing catering at a convention center near Seattle. He said his success reflected his seven years of kitchen experience prior to culinary school. Career Education notes that

only 5.9 percent of the federal loans to students at Western Culinary Institute that began to come due in 2007 — the latest available data — are listed in default by the Department of Education. But default rates have traditionally reflected only those borrowers who fail to pay in the first two years payments are due. The Department of Education has begun calculating default rates for three years. By that yardstick, Western Culinary’s default rate more than doubles, to 12.5 percent. For-profit schools have ramped up their own lending to students to replace loans formerly extended by Sallie Mae, the student lending giant. These loans are risky: Career Education and Corinthian recently told investors they had set aside roughly half the money allocated this year for private lending to cover anticipated bad debts. Financial aid experts say such high rates of expected default prove graduates will not earn enough to make their payments, yet the loans make sense for the for-profit school industry by enabling the flow of taxpayer funds to their coffers: They satisfy federal requirements that at least 10 percent of tuition money come from students directly or from private sources. “They’re making so much money off their federal student loans and grants that they can afford to write off their own loans,” said Asher of the Institute for College Access & Success.

Vet center Continued from A1 The vet center’s services can help the most when soldiers return home from serving in a combat zone, said Central Oregon Veterans Outreach board member Robert Bryce, who served in the Army during Vietnam. “It’s a pretty frightening situation for most of these people coming home,” said Bryce, 63. “They know they’ve changed.” Bryce sought help at a Riverside, Calif., vet center in 1997, after coping with combatrelated depression for decades, he said. Learning that other veterans were facing similar issues helped him, he said. Services like counseling and mental health screening, Bryce said, “need to be available immediately when these guys get out of uniform.” A spokesman for the VA said no timeline has been set for when the Bend center will open. “It is my understanding that they have yet to solicit bids” for the center’s location, spokesman David Bayard said in an e-mail. “I have no data on how long these contracts take. Bottom line is that we are committed to taking care of Veterans in your area of Oregon.” Bayard didn’t respond to an email asking for more information about the contracting process. Staffers for Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, have been pushing the VA to speed up its process since December. The senator’s office plans to send a letter to the department next week, asking for the center to be completed by May 1 under a streamlined contracting process. The VA is well-intentioned, but there’s no excuse for the current

delay, Wyden said in an interview Friday. “Our view is that this shouldn’t be the longest-running battle since the Trojan War to get this location,” Wyden said. “This is the kind of thing that gives government a bad taste in people’s mouths.” Even without the vet center, returning soldiers will have access to assistance from county veterans service officers and online through the Oregon Army National Guard and the U.S. Army, said Kay Fristad, chief of public affairs for the Oregon Military Department. Services at vet centers are free to veterans and their families. Many centers are staffed with social workers, psychologists, psychiatric nurses, counselors and outreach specialists, according to the news release from the VA that announced Bend’s vet center. COVO President Anne Philiben said the vet center would be a great resource for returning soldiers, but given the slow pace of federal bureaucracy, she never expected it to be done in time for the 41st Infantry Brigade’s return. Now, at least, there’s the prospect of a vet center in the near future. “It’s kind of scary that there’s that many of them coming back, but there’s not much we can do,” Philiben said. “We’re better off than we were four years ago when the last group came back and we had nothing to offer except COVO.” Keith Chu can be reached at 202-662-7456 or at kchu@bendbulletin.com.

60 years of catching the country’s worst criminals The Washington Post Today marks the 60th anniversary of the FBI’s Most Wanted list. Since the list began on March 14, 1950, 494 fugitives have been on it, and 463 have been apprehended, according to the FBI. The national list, as stated on the FBI’s Web site, began after a reporter with the International News Service asked the agency in 1949 for a list of men who were wanted by agents. The story was so popular that longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover started the fugitive list. The list continues to be popular and can be found at www.fbi.gov. It has included bank robbers, serial killers, drug traffickers and political activists. But it has not been without its controversies, such as during the social unrest of the 1960s and ’70s, when some of the agency’s tactics were especially questioned. Read on for 10 of the most intriguing fugitives who made the Most Wanted list:

Iraq vote signals shift from religious leaders By Lara Jakes The Associated Press

The Associated Press

In the northern city of Monterrey on Friday, Mexican Navy Marines escort an injured man after he was detained at a clinic. According to local media, the Navy detained six men and a woman at the clinic, where they were recovering from wounds allegedly suffered during a gunbattle against federal forces a day earlier.

Drug cartels Continued from A1 The Mexican government’s drug offensive, employing tens of thousands of soldiers and federal police officers, has unleashed everincreasing levels of violence over the last three years as traffickers have fought to protect their lucrative smuggling routes. Journalists have long been among the victims, but the attacks on members of the media now under way in Reynosa and elsewhere along a long stretch of border from Nuevo Laredo to Matamoros are at their worst. Traffickers have gone after the media with a vengeance in these strategic border towns where drugs are smuggled across by the ton. They have shot up newsrooms, kidnapped and killed staff members and called up the media regularly with threats that were not the least bit veiled. Back off, the thugs said. Do not dare print our names. We will kill you the next time you publish a photograph like that. “They mean what they say,” said one of the many terrified journalists who used to cover the police beat in Reynosa. “I’m censoring myself. There’s no other way to put it. But so is everybody else.” When they are not issuing threats, journalists say, the drug runners are buying off reporters with everything from cash to romps with prostitutes. The traffickers are not always so press shy. When they post banners on bridges expounding on their twisted view of the world or commit some particularly gory crime, they often seek out media coverage. But not now. And the current news blackout along the border has only amplified fears, as false rumors of impending shootouts circulate unchecked, prompting many parents to pull their children from school and businesses to close. It means that a mother can huddle on the floor of a closet with her daughter for what seems like an eternity as fierce gunfire is exchanged outside their home, as occurred here recently, and then find not a word of it in the next day’s paper. And it means that helicopters can swoop overhead, military vehicles can roar through the streets and the entire neighborhood can sound like a war movie, and television can lead off the next day’s broadcast talking about something else. Even some authorities, including Mayor Oscar Lubbert of Reynosa, acknowledge that without news reports, it is harder for them to get a full picture of how much blood is spilled overnight, partly because the traffickers sometimes haul their dead comrades away before the sun comes up. The violence was so fearsome last month that the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City temporarily closed the consular agency in Reynosa, which offers assistance to Americans, many of whom manage the hundreds of manufacturing plants based here. Closed on Feb. 24, the

office reopened on March 8 after a lull in the bloodshed, which has continued sporadically in recent days with clashes between traffickers and the police. What remains unclear is whether the combatants have called it quits or are merely reloading for more battles to come. Rarely, if ever, does the local news media mention the names of the groups engaged in combat or their top leadership. The Texas press broke the story that the Drug Enforcement Administration traced the upsurge in violence in Reynosa to Jan. 18, when a member of the Gulf Cartel killed a top lieutenant of the rival Zeta gang named Victor Mendoza. The Zetas, founded by former members of the Mexican special forces and known for both their organization and their brutality, demanded the shooter. The Gulf Cartel, which once used the Zetas as enforcers but now vows to eliminate them, refused. In the weeks that followed, fierce shootouts broke out along long stretches of the border, and the local reporters went silent. “Before, if there was a shootout, the scene would be full of journalists,” said one of the many reporters who has given up covering the drug war here out of fear and who insisted on anonymity for the same reason. “Now, sometimes there will not be a single journalist. Everyone stays away.” The fear extends to the Texas side of the border, where most news organizations bar their journalists from crossing into Reynosa. When journalists do try to get a glimpse of Reynosa’s underbelly, bad things can happen. A reporter and cameraman working for Mexico City-based Milenio TV were picked up by traffickers early this month and viciously beaten overnight, prompting them to catch the next flight out. Days later, a reporter for The Dallas Morning News quickly left Reynosa after he and a television crew were approached by a man on the streets who warned them they lacked permission to report there and ordered them to leave. They were the lucky ones. A local radio reporter died recently from a beating, according to local journalists, who say five other colleagues have gone missing in the last month. The authorities have confirmed only one of the disappearances, that of Miguel Angel Dominguez Zamora of Reynosa’s El Manana newspaper, who disappeared March 1. “We’re all watching our backs,”

24 killed in western Mexico, 11 at once ACAPULCO, Mexico — A series of shootings killed 24 people Saturday in a Pacific coast state plagued by drug gang violence. Nearly half died in one shootout between soldiers and armed men. The gunbattle erupted when attackers opened fire on soldiers patrolling the small town of Ajuchitlan del Progreso, said Valentin Diaz, director of the Guerrero state investigative police. Ten gunmen and one soldier were killed, he said. President Felipe Calderon has deployed tens of thousands of troops to Guerrero and other drug-trafficking hot spots across Mexico in an effort to root out cartels. Gang violence has surged since the crackdown began three years ago, claiming more than 17,900 lives. Thirteen other people were killed in Guerrero in several other incidents before dawn, according to a state police report. Several cartels are fighting over drug-dealing turf and trafficking routes in Guerrero. Gang violence occurs almost every day in the state, but Saturday was unusually bloody. — The Associated Press

said a Reynosa journalist, whose voice trembled as he spoke. One troubling aspect of the kidnappings and killings of journalists in Mexico is that nobody knows for sure which cases involve crusading reporters doing their jobs in revealing the truth and which involve careless or crooked reporters who had become too close to one cartel or another. “It’s understandable and worrying that you have a number of media organizations that are likely under the sway, either by corruption or intimidation, of the cartels,” said an American official monitoring the violence but who was not authorized to speak on the record. Ciro Gomez Leyva, the news director at Milenio who had sent the crew to Reynosa, wrote an angry column recently taking President Felipe Calderon to task for his declaration that no part of the country was outside the control of the government. “Journalism is dead in Reynosa,” Gomez declared flatly. The violence and what it has done to the news media has become, by necessity, a part of journalism instruction along the border. At one Reynosa university, communications professors talk about the importance of staying neutral and how it can be deadly to take sides. They also steer their students, until the climate along the border changes, into jobs covering politics, culture or sports. Anything but crime.

A rrests expose Basque terror group’s Venezuelan roots New York Times News Service CARACAS, Venezuela — The shadowy underworld of Basque exiles in this city is coming under sharp scrutiny after recent arrests in Europe and an indictment this month from one of Spain’s top judges asserting that Venezuelan intelligence officials were involved in training Basque separatists and Colombian guerrillas in Venezuela.

Venezuela has lured thousands of Basque immigrants since the 1930s, when some began fleeing persecution in Franco’s Spain. Spanish intelligence specialists say the armed Basque separatist group ETA has maintained a cell in this community since 1959, formed just months after ETA’s creation in Spain. The arrest of three highlevel ETA militants in France

last month further exposed the group’s roots here. Many in the Basque community, which numbers in the low thousands and includes prominent entrepreneurs and scholars, disavow ETA’s tactics. Basques here are also divided between those who oppose President Hugo Chavez and those who support him, with some exiles tied to ETA in the pro-Chavez camp.

BAGHDAD — Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s political coalition took an early vote lead Saturday in the election’s all-important battleground of Baghdad, pulling away from its two closest rivals in the latest indication that Iraqis want a moderate government instead of Shiite religious hard-liners leading the postwar nation. Partial results released by the Independent High Electoral Commission showed the State of Law coalition with about a 60,000-vote edge nationwide over its main moderate challenger, the secular Iraqiya coalition. The Shiite fundamentalist Iraqi National Alliance was in third. The partial Baghdad vote was released amid utter disarray in the election commission’s headquarters, where the results were flashed on big-screen TVs but yanked moments later, only to be released yet again. It was the latest in a series of blunders marring the counting process. The chairman of the electoral commission, Faraj al-Haidari, said preliminary nationwide results could be released as early as today — a full week after the vote for a 325-member parliament that will choose a prime minister to form a government that will lead the country as U.S. troops prepare to go home. Allegations of fraud also have plagued the ballot tally. The electoral commission said more than 2,000 complaints had been received as of Saturday but it gave no specifics, saying only that they would be investigated. So far, al-Maliki’s coalition is leading in five of the 11 provinces where the vote has been partially counted. Iraq has a total of

New fraud cases point to lapses in projects Investigators looking into corruption involving reconstruction in Iraq say they have opened more than 50 new cases in the past six months by scrutinizing large cash transactions made by some of the Americans involved in the nearly $150 billion rebuilding program. Some of the cases involve people who are suspected of having mailed tens of thousands of dollars to themselves from Iraq, or of having stuffed the money into duffel bags and suitcases when leaving the country, the federal investigators said. In other cases, millions of dollars were moved through wire transfers. Suspects then used cash to buy BMWs, Humvees and expensive jewelry or to pay off enormous casino debts. There have already been dozens of indictments and convictions for corruption since the 2003 invasion of Iraq. But the new cases seem to confirm what investigators have long speculated: that the chaos, weak oversight and wide use of cash payments in the reconstruction program in Iraq allowed many more Americans who took bribes or stole money to get off scot-free. The cases were uncovered during the first phase of a new, systematic inquiry into financial activities, which investigators said began in earnest last summer. A related investigation of rebuilding funds for Afghanistan began in February. — New York Times News Service

18 provinces. Nationwide, State of Law has so far amassed more than 357,000 votes, and Iraqiya was trailing with 295,400 votes. The INA was in third place with just over 280,500. Outside Baghdad, all of alMaliki’s leads are in southern provinces where Shiite hard-liners were expected to bring stiff competition. The south is generally considered friendly turf for the INA, made up of the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council and followers of the anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr — two groups that are linked to Iran. U.S. officials have long worried that religious hard-liners — especially those influenced by Iran — would take over the still-shaky government and undo much of the progress toward making Iraq a reliable ally

in the Middle East. Hakim al-Zamili, one of the INA’s Sadrist candidates, played down al-Maliki’s gains and said Iraqis still “are religious and they still respect religious parties.” Even so, al-Zamili acknowledged that some voters have grown tired of fundamentalist politicians. “We should confess that some people have turned their back on these parties because they were disappointed by the performance of inefficient officials linked to religious parties,” al-Zamili said.

CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES

Portraying hand-picked as a bad thing, politically By Carl Hulse New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — Rep. Brad Ellsworth will avoid a primary fight to become the Democratic candidate for the Senate in Indiana, which should be good news for him. But Republicans are preparing to cast him as the tainted product of shadowy dealings in smoke-filled rooms. The strategy grows out of a string of developments suggesting that efforts by both parties to anoint congressional candidates or manipulate the playing field can backfire, as they have in recent months in places like Delaware, Massachusetts and New York. The public, it turns out, prefers a say in the electoral process. “When you come down to it, it is probably best to let the voters pick the nominee,” said Stuart Rothenberg, a nonpartisan analyst of congressional races. In the Indiana case, Ellsworth, a former county sheriff and a twoterm House member, has emerged as the favorite of state Democratic leaders, who will select a nominee now that Sen. Evan Bayh has bowed out. Ellsworth would then be matched against the winner of the state’s Republican primary, which will be held May 4. Indiana is just one of the places where gamesmanship, the law and unique circumstances have short-circuited the conventional process and produced unexpected results. The special election for a vacant House seat in New York was a vivid example. When county Republican leaders selected a moderate, Dede Scozzafava, as their choice, it set off a fight within the party and led to a Democrat winning the seat in November. In Massachusetts, legislators engaged in some fancy footwork at the urging of Democrats in Washington. They changed state law to allow an interim successor to Sen. Ted Kennedy after his death, to help advance Democratic health care legislation before a special election for the seat in January. The maneuvering no doubt left a bad taste in the mouths of some voters and could have contributed to the upset win of Sen. Scott Brown, a Republican. And in Delaware, Democrats sought to clear the field for the Senate candidacy of Joseph R. Biden III, the state attorney general and son of Vice President Joe Biden. When the younger Biden, who is known as Beau, then decided not to run in what looks to be a difficult year for his party, Democrats had to scramble for a replacement. The popular Republican candidate, Rep. Michael Castle, became a solid favorite. There are other spots where the intrusion of the party has caused trouble, like Florida, where the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s early endorsement of Gov. Charlie Crist roiled conservatives who are rallying behind Marco Rubio, the former speaker of the State House. Now the senatorial committee is trying to seize on the way the Democratic nomination is being decided in Indiana to raise questions about the candidacy of Ellsworth. Republicans have been seething since the incumbent, Bayh, abruptly announced last month

Divided party? It’s not just the GOP For all the evidence of a divided Republican Party, the Democratic Party has its own widening cracks that could make a potentially bleak election year even more dour. In just the past two weeks, Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln became the latest Democratic incumbent to attract a primary challenger, anti-abortion Democrats fought hard to derail President Barack Obama’s health care measure, and civil rights advocates and environmentalists likened the Democrat to George W. Bush. Few pieces of the mosaic that is the Democratic Party seem happy. Labor and gays are restless. Blacks and Hispanics are grumbling. Liberals and moderates are battling. Even some in Hollywood are disappointed. Republicans are wrestling with their own deep splits. There’s a family feud over whether the GOP should strictly adhere to conservative principles or be more inclusive. That infighting is prominently on display in a slew of contentious primary contests. — The Associated Press that he would not seek re-election. His announcement came the day before the deadline to file nominating petitions, making it virtually impossible for any other Democrat to get on the primary ballot. So under Indiana law, that meant the 32 members of the Democratic State Central Committee — by definition, party insiders — would choose the nominee, and Ellsworth has been reaching out to them to secure the nod. In the meantime, Republicans are competing in their own primary, spending money and doing some damage to one another. Trying to do a little damage to Ellsworth, the senatorial committee is scheduled to go live on Monday with a new Web site and Internet advertisement that characterizes him as the choice of “party bosses, not voters” and the beneficiary of “another Washington-style backroom deal.” Republicans are hoping that message sticks with voters in a year when the public is showing signs of being fed up with business as usual. “At the end of the day, the nominee will have been chosen by 32 people,” said Rob Jesmer, executive director of the Republican senatorial committee. “That is not going to sell.” While Rothenberg, the election analyst, said it would have been preferable to have a Democratic primary, he doubts the selection process will be much of a liability for Ellsworth. In a potentially tough year for Democrats in a conservative state like Indiana, he will have other things to worry about. “I think the biggest baggage,” Rothenberg said, “will be the ‘D’ behind his name.”

“He’s basically the defense, the prosecution, the judge, the jury and the hangman in this scenario. It all comes down to him.” — Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H. Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, the senior Republican on the Budget Committee, whose staff has been meeting with Frumin on reconciliation matters for months. “It all comes down to him.” That makes some Republicans uncomfortable. The rumblings began in December when Frumin sided with Democrats as Republicans tried to delay a health care vote. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said in comments published in the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call that Frumin was “clearly biased” — a remark that was apparently too blunt for some of his colleagues, judging by the apology DeMint later delivered on the Senate floor. Now, with the White House pushing Congress to act on health

care by Easter, the warnings and caveats about Frumin are flying once again. “I think he’s an honest man, but we’ll see,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “Some people buckle under pressure.” Asked if he had evidence of partisan leanings by Frumin, Hatch shrugged. “I’m sure he’s a Democrat,” the senator said, “but I think he’s an honest man.” In fact, Frumin, 63, is a registered independent, voting records show. Parliamentarians are appointed by the party in power; Frumin, who joined the office as an assistant in 1977, is the only parliamentarian to have been installed in the top job by both Democrats and Republicans. Democrats put him there in 1987 when Sen.

Robert Byrd was majority leader; in 2001, he was reinstalled under Trent Lott, a Republican. The parliamentarian’s job requires years of apprenticeship, and the work is so obscure that few people in Washington can do it. For much of his career, Frumin has alternated with Robert Dove, who learned the hard way what can happen to a parliamentarian who irks a Senate leader. He was fired by Lott after advising Republicans that they could not add a $5 billion emergency allocation to the budget. That Dove called it “a slush fund” probably did not help. “I said, ‘You can’t do that,’” Dove recalled, “and I was let go that very afternoon.” The exceedingly cautious Frumin, who shuns publicity, does not worry about a similar fate, his defenders say. But questions about his integrity do seem to upset him. Tom Daschle, the former Democratic leader in the Senate, said Frumin was “extremely sensitive to any charge of favoritism,” which could be why Republicans

are making the claim. “They know it gets his goat,” Daschle said. The Senate has few rules but thousands of precedents, and Frumin is paid $167,000 a year to interpret them, operating something like a cross between Bartleby the Scrivener and a Talmudic scholar. It is a grueling job, but it does come with a choice piece of real estate — a sun-drenched, book-lined suite on the Capitol’s first floor. Whenever the Senate is in session, Frumin or one of his assistants is in the chamber, whispering advice to the presiding officer. Perhaps more important is the advice the parliamentarian gives in private to senators of both parties trying to figure out, in advance, how he might rule. It is kind of like being the lawyer for both sides. “He doesn’t suffer from this problem of trying to help people figure out how to do this or that — that’s not his role,” said Kevin Kayes, who worked as an assistant under Frumin. “They come in, you force them to ask questions and work through it themselves.”

Schools changing schedules face book costs Bids sought, Bend-La Pine Schools is looking at $145K for the necessary additional texts lawsuit looms over airport food and drink By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

Schedule changes high schools will put into effect for the 2010-11 school year are expected to cost Bend-La Pine Schools at least $145,000 in additional textbooks. Both Bend and Summit high

schools plan to conduct more classes that meet every other day over a yearlong basis, rather than having classes that meet daily for one semester. As a result, more students would need textbooks throughout the school year. And because Bend High, Summit and

Mountain View High School are all planning to increase time for interventions and enrichment, the district will have to purchase additional books and resources for those classes as well. “Each high school took a look at if they went to yearlong classes

what they had in inventory,” said Vicki Van Buren, the chief academic officer of high school programs. “And actually Mountain View, even though they’re not changing their schedule, they will need to pick up some resources to focus on reading, math and writing interventions. All three schools will.” See Textbooks / B2

Washington Week WASHINGTON—After two months of delay, Democrats appeared to be close to moving forward with their strategy to pass an overhaul of the U.S. health care system sometime in the next week. Last week, though, lawmakers continued to work on legislation intended to spur job growth and debated a number of smaller measures. Here’s how Oregon’s lawmakers voted last week.

U.S. Senate • EXTENDING EXPIRING TAX PROVISIONS AND FEDERAL AID TO STATES

By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

Passed 62-36 on Wednesday. The roughly $150 billion bill extends unemployment benefits, subsidies for temporary COBRA health benefits, and tax credits for individuals and businesses. It also reverses a cut in Medicare payments to doctors, among other provisions. The bill now may go to the U.S. House, or to a conference committee to settle differences with a House version of the measure.

Redmond officials have decided they want a single proprietor to run both a restaurant and bar at the Redmond Airport. The request for proposals comes after the city received no bids for just a restaurant, and a controversial deal to open just a bar there fell through. The RFP, which is expected to go out later this month, will require any company that wants to bid to operate both the bar and a restaurant. The restaurant will be located in the area before security while the bar will be in the area restricted to passengers. The city spent $40 million to expand the airport from a 23,000-square-foot terminal to 140,000 square feet. Finishing the restaurant and bar will complete the amenities, and City Manager David Brandt said a deal could be in place for both by early summer. Redmond officials hope putting both spaces into one bid will entice someone to open a restaurant outside security, according to Mayor George Endicott. The bar, in effect, is the carrot to open the restaurant. “The rest you have a hard time

making pencil out without the bar component. That’s where the money is,” Endicott said. “Chances are, we’d get lots of bids on the bar and none on the restaurant.” But finding anyone to fill the important dining and drinking spaces has proved difficult and controversial in the last few months. Deschutes Brewery was set to open a bar at the airport, but the city pulled back after David Shurtleff, a Redmond businessman, complained that the opportunity hadn’t been available for public bidding. Now that the city has decided to allow vendors to bid only on both spaces, Shurtleff, who owns Coyote Ranch Restaurant in Redmond, vows he will sue for discrimination. If the brewery had a chance to open just the bar, so should other bar owners, Shurtleff said. “I warned (the council), you do not write up the RFP that way, or we’re going to have some trouble,” Shurtleff said. “Nobody wants to do both.” The city is unmoved by a possible discrimination lawsuit. “He’s got nothing to stand on,” Brandt said.

Eli Whitney gets patent for his cotton gin in 1794 The Associated Press Today is Sunday, March 14, the 73rd day of 2010. There are 292 days left in the year. TODAY’S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY On March 14, 1794, Eli Whitney received a patent for his cotton gin, an invention that revolutionized America’s cotton industry. ON THIS DATE In 1743, a memorial service was held at Faneuil Hall in Boston honoring Peter Faneuil, who had donated the building bearing his name. In 1883, German political philosopher Karl Marx died in London at age 64. In 1923, President Warren G. Harding became the first chief executive to file an income tax report. In 1939, the republic of Czechoslovakia was dissolved, opening the way for Nazi occupation of Czech areas and the separation of Slovakia. In 1951, during the Korean War, United Nations forces recaptured Seoul. In 1964, a jury in Dallas found Jack Ruby guilty of murdering Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy, and sentenced him to death.

T O D AY I N H I S T O R Y (Both the conviction and death sentence were later overturned, but Ruby died before he could be retried.)

Local artists join Sisters residents Saturday to create a variety of art together during the Common Canvas Community Arts Day gathering in the art studio at Sisters Middle School.

Art Continued from B1 Brad Tisdel, executive director of the Americana Project, said the Common Canvas Community Arts Day is primarily a way of boosting participation in the arts and the auction from people who might otherwise be disinterested. Those who created a piece of art during the event have been invited to show it off at the Art Stroll on April 9. A few select pieces of art will be hung for display, while all of the other artists are encouraged to bring their painted bags and join a parade through the streets of Sisters. Inspiration for how to decorate a bag comes from a variety of places, with landscapes, geomet-

Textbooks Continued from B1 The estimated cost of $145,000 will come out of the district’s textbook fund. Although it’s early in the budgeting process, Finance Director Brad Henry said the district will likely budget about $900,000 for textbooks for the 2010-11 school year. Henry said the district budgeted $290,000 for textbooks for the 2009-10 school year, down from the $540,000 that was proposed in the original budget. In the 2008-09 school year, the district budgeted $900,000 for textbooks, but dropped that to about $700,000 partway through the year when the state announced it would cut some funding to schools. The additional textbooks will likely be mostly for core subjects like social studies, English, math, science and foreign languages. Lora Nordquist, the district’s director of curriculum development, said having enough high school textbooks is paramount. “Our number one priority has to be, if we have a schedule change, we have to have the instructional

ric shapes and children’s renditions of family pets all appearing on multiple bags. Carolyn Platt, one of the artists who came in to help the public on Saturday, said she’d transformed a bag into a flamenco dancer, complete with a flowing skirt and a shoe that doubles as a coin purse. Casey Warburton, 10, of Sisters, opted for an image of “The Magic Pickle,” a muscle-bound flying fermented cucumber that serves as the superhero star of a series of children’s books. Like most at Saturday’s event, Casey said his bag will be put to good use in the years to come. “It’ll be a shopping bag,” he said. “Probably for vegetables.” Outing himself as “a terrible visual artist,” Tisdel said artistic

skill isn’t nearly as important as taking enjoyment from the process of creation. Tisdel’s perspective wasn’t lost on Charley Seymour, 4, from Sisters. Scribbling away diligently on a red shape vaguely resembling a tropical fish, Charley leaned back from her work to study it, attracting the attention of her father. “Charley, what did you draw there?” asked father Jeff Seymour, 33. Charley looked at her father, shrugged, and wordlessly returned to her drawing. “It’s abstract,” Seymour said.

materials so teachers can teach,” she said. “That’s going to take some money from the budget.” Traditionally, Nordquist said, the district puts about $900,000 each year into the textbook fund, and officials are able to save up some of that cash to pay for more expensive textbook purchases. Each year, the state reviews all textbooks for one subject to approve materials for use in Oregon. Each subject is reviewed on a seven-year cycle. The district plans this fall to adopt new math textbooks for all grade levels. “That’s what we’d like to do, but we have to have enough money to be able to do that,” Nordquist said. “One thing that helps us is many textbook publishers are very aware (of the challenge of purchasing textbooks) and have two-year purchasing plans. We might be able to have all the materials in the fall of 2010 and stretch payments over two years.” The other option, Nordquist said, is to stagger the math textbook adoption over two years, putting new textbooks into some grades in 2010-11 and then the rest in 2011-12. “That’s our less-preferred

(choice),” she said. But because that amount was reduced for the 2009-10 school year, the district doesn’t have much money remaining to carry over to next year to pay for the math texts. “We don’t have a huge amount left in that budget right now, which makes it more of a challenge,” Nordquist said. “It is a priority with (Superintendent Ron Wilkinson) and the board that we are able to purchase materials, so we’re hoping our budget stays intact.” Although the budget is still uncertain, officials said the new high school schedules will move forward next year. “We don’t know what it’s going to be this year because we really don’t know what that budget is going to be,” Van Buren said. “We may have to go back to the drawing board. One possibility would be to stagger the math adoption and spread the cost of that math adoption over two years. ... But it would not be that we would stop moving forward with high school schedules.”

Airport Continued from B1 Opening the restaurant will cost several hundred thousand dollars, Shurtleff estimated, and said there was no way he could afford to open both. The roughly 700-square-foot bar would cost a fraction of the restaurant and would also have higher profit margins. But at least one company may be interested. Gary Fish, president of Deschutes Brewery, said once the RFP is complete, the company would review the possibility of opening both spots. Despite the change, it may still be an attractive opportunity, Fish said. “We remain interested in the airport,” Fish said. “We would like to try and find a way to have it make sense. If we can, great. If we can’t, great.” City staff believe Shurtleff is wrong, and hope that Deschutes and others will bid. Airport Manager Carrie Novick said the bar had not been part of the original plan, but now it could become an important piece of the airport. The airport will make some money on the deal, but its financial viability depends more on things like landing and passenger fees. The restaurant and bar are amenities for passengers, she said. “It’s more of a convenience for the public,” Novick said. Patrick Cliff can be reached at 541-633-2161 or at pcliff@bendbulletin.com.

O Portland airport halves bird strikes The Associated Press PORTLAND — Portland International Airport bird and wildlife hazard managers cut the number of bird strikes with aircraft in half last year. The number of bird strikes fell to 53 in 2009, and wildlife officers have also worked to keep other animals, including coyotes, from causing damage at the airport. The Port of Portland spends about $500,000 annually on

wildlife control efforts across 1,700 acres. Officials try to avoid killing any of the animals considered pests, and instead haze them and scare them off. Tools include pyrotechnics, a network of 20 noise cannons and even a small hand-held laser that shoots a beam of green light as far as a mile to scare birds. “The birds think it’s a light saber,” said biologist Nick Atwell,

who leads the team of four airport wildlife managers. “They do not like the laser.” From sunrise to sunset, at least one of the airport wildlife officers patrols the area, usually in a bright yellow pickup equipped with radios, maps and animal control tools. One of the tools used to manage red-tailed hawks is a trap called a Swedish Goshawk trap designed so that it automatically

closes after birds fly in. The birds are then banded and released away from the runway. The banding helps Atwell track which birds return and how quickly they come back. Animals on the ground also pose a problem. The grass between runways needed for stormwater drainage is mottled with trails made by voles, small rodents that eat bugs and worms and serve as dinner for larger predators.

Wine dilemma: more grapes, fewer sales By Mateusz Perkowski (Salem) Capital Press

EUGENE — The Oregon wine industry is facing a dilemma. The state’s grape production is continuing to expand even as wine sales have dropped off, prompting concerns about oversupply. “Not only are we producing more grapes, but more acres are coming online,” said Ted Farthing, executive director of the Oregon Wine Board. “We need to do a lot more work on the demand side.” Farthing and other wine experts recently gathered in Eugene to discuss the industry’s outlook at an annual symposium. With national unemployment still hovering at about 10 percent, the “jobless recovery” from the recession continues to rattle consumer confidence, he said. Wines produced in Oregon tend to be more pricey, making them less attractive to distributors who want to move large volumes of product, said Eugenia Keegan, a wine industry consultant. Oregon winemakers sold about 1.66 million cases of wine in 2009, down 5 percent in volume from the prior year, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. In terms of value, however, wine sales dropped about 16 percent, to $202 million, according to NASS. As high-end wineries have been forced to knock down their prices, they’ve begun competing more with midlevel wineries, said Rob McMillan, head of the wine division of Silicon Valley Bank in Saint Helena, Calif. As a result, the wine industry has felt pressure to reduce prices across the board, he said. Wineries can only lower their prices to a certain point without risking their overall business, McMillan said. For that reason, producers should now focus on consumer research and providing more value for the dollar, rather than engaging in a race to the bottom, he said. “Focus on the experience part, not the price part,”

Christopher Martin of Troon Vineyards speaks last month with Amy Lee of Tonnellerie Ermitage at the Oregon Wine Symposium in Eugene. The gathering was a chance for wine producers to discuss the outlook for the industry after Oregon wine sales dropped in 2009. McMillan said. Amid softening demand and lower prices for wine, Oregon grape production rose 16 percent in 2009, to 40,200 tons.

and wineries in 2009, hitting grape growers in late summer, he said.

A ton of pinot noir grapes, the region’s signature variety, fell in price last season from about $3,000 to $2,000, he said. “We’re the last people to feel it and the last to come out,” Novak said. In light of the economic situation, it’s a good time for growers to remove inefficient vineyard blocks, he said. “When in doubt, rip it out,” Novak said. Vineyards can be “mothballed,” but it’s not cheap or easy, since growers must still spend money on pesticides to prevent the blocks from becoming disease centers, he said. “It’s not a very attractive scenario.” During past down cycles, farmers in California have removed vast acreage to curb overproduction, Novak said. Hopefully, it doesn’t have to come to that in Oregon, which has much fewer vineyard acres, he said. “I’d prefer if we sell our way out of it.”

Opposing forces Nearly one-fourth of Oregon’s 19,300 vineyard acres has not yet reached maturity, so production can be expected to continue growing based on existing plantings. “You have two disjointed forces going on,” said Matt Novak, president of Results Partners, a vineyard management company in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. To make matters worse, there’s a lot of finished product left to sell. Inventories of Oregon wine from 2008, 2007 and earlier vintages have topped 2 million cases, according to NASS. Without much incentive to buy grapes, winemakers may decide not to renew contracts with farmers — particularly if they have enough of their own grapes, Novak said. “Wineries are favoring their estate vineyards,” he said. Trouble in Oregon’s wine industry began brewing in 2008, when the financial crisis hurt food service sales, Novak said. Slower wine turnover in restaurants affected distributors

O  B 4.9 magnitude quake reported off coast PORTLAND — The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., reported a magnitude 4.9 quake Friday night off the Oregon coast. There were no immediate reports of it being felt or causing damage. Geophysicist Randy Baldwin says the quake was centered about 330 miles westsouthwest of Portland at a depth of six miles — shallow in earthquake terms. He says quakes of that magnitude are common in that area, part of the Juan de Fuca Plate, and there is no danger of it generating a tsunami.

Papers in teen death may remain sealed EUGENE — A judge in Eugene appears unlikely to grant a newspaper’s request to unseal a search warrant affidavit containing details of the aggravated murder case against the mother and stepfather of a teenage girl. The Oregonian is seeking the document in the alleged

maiming and torture death of 15-year-old Jeanette Marie Maples. The mother of the teenager, 41-year-old Angela Darlene McAnulty, and her husband, 42year-old Richard McAnulty, both could face the death penalty if convicted.

Troopers write more cell phone tickets PORTLAND — Oregon State Police troopers cited nearly twice as many drivers in February for violating the new ban on most cell phones compared to the first month the law was in effect in January. Troopers issued 72 citations in February after writing 41 tickets in January. With some exceptions, it is unlawful in Oregon for a driver to use a cell phone without using a hands-free accessory while operating a motor vehicle. — From wire reports Black Psilamolean & Princess Diamonds

Rajneeshees accused in 1985 salmonella outbreak 100 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 13, 1910 BUILDING NEVER STOPS IN BEND Building operations did not cease during the winter, but are showing increased activity with returning spring. Plenty of lumber has at all times been available here, and it is not expected that there will be any shortage of building material. Among the buildings put up this winter are the blacksmith shop by George Brosterhous, at Minnesota and Bond; F.C. Rowlee’s bowling alley and two-story addition to the Grant building on Wall street; an addition 16x140 feet to the Aune feed barn on Bond street, and the two-story dwelling on Juniper street put up by the Central Oregon Realty Co.; the cottage of Barney Lewis in the Lytle acre tracts, and the Wenandy & Bunten garage 40x60 feet and addition to Wenandy barn. The chief building now under construction is an extension of the Pilot Butte Inn 28x66 feet and two stories tall. It will add 20 guest rooms to the present capacity of the Inn. The ladies parlor will also be in the new part. This will make the main part of the hotel 126 feet long and the total number of guest rooms in the establishment 40. Furniture for the new rooms is already arriving, and it will be moved in and the rooms occupied before the end of the month. James McCoy has charge of the construction. Floyd Dement has begun construction of a two-story frame building 30x140 feet on his lot just bought at the corner of Bond and Minnesota streets. The stone foundation is already well along. The first floor will be occupied by Mr. Dement’s general hardware store, and the upper story will probably be a theater, with roomy stage and dressing rooms. The H.H. Davies building on Wall street just north of Caldwell’s store will be ready to occupy by the end of the month.

Y E S T E R D AY It is 50x50 feet and is divided into three store fronts, the most northerly of which will be occupied by Whitsett & Turpin with a stock of gentlemen’s furnishing goods, the central one by the fruit stand of M.J. Kelly, and the most southerly room will be the automobile office of F.W. Stafford. “Dad” West this week completed the vault for the new state bank and is proud of the job, as he may well be. It is made of pink tuff laid in cement, built up from bedrock, and plastered 6 inches thick inside with concrete. Landlord O’Kane of the Bend Hotel, has remodeled for his dwelling the building on Oregon street formerly occupied as a bowling alley, and later by The Bulletin. A new front was put in and the interior rearranged to serve the new use. Henry Linster bought a lot from H.J. Overturf next to Millard Triplett’s residence on Wall street. Mr. Linster will erect there an opera house. The floor of the opera house will be of hardwood so it may be used for dancing or skating if needed.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 13, 1935 WORK IN CAVE SOUTH OF BEND IS COMPLETED SERA (State Emergency Relief Administration) improvements in Lava Caves park, about 12 miles south of Bend, have been completed, and the mile-long cavern, formed ages ago by a river of molten rock, now takes its place as one of the easily accessible natural wonders of western America. Work in the cavern was supervised by the state highway department. Improvements to the cave have eliminated one of the greatest fears of sightseers — that their lights would go out far back in the tunnel and that they would be

stranded in the darkness, unable to find their way to the exit. Nearly 5,000 feet of guide wire has been placed in the cave, and it is now possible to follow this wire from the rear of the cavern to the entrance without any trouble. A near tragedy resulted in the long lava river tunnel on May 12, 1923, when two Bend men, Carl Murphy and Joe Bigley, were left stranded in the cavern when their light failed. Battered and bleeding, Bigley made his way out of the cave. Murphy was found far back in the cave nine hours later. Effectiveness of the guide wire has already been proved. When the work neared completion, a party of visitors went into the cavern. About three-fourths of the way back, one of the visitors decided to test the guide wire and without light easily found his way to the mouth of the cave. Erection of the guide wire was only a minor part of the work accomplished under the SERA project. Slightly more than a mile of trail was built. This trail flanked by the guide wire, is 4 feet wide and has a 3-inch sand cushion. It is no longer necessary to dress in hiking shoes. The entrance to the cave has also been improved, with 135 steps, of native stone, leading down into the black cavern. These stone steps are 4 feet wide with a 12-inch tread and a 6-inch rise. There are four flights of stairs, with a rustic bench on an 8-foot landing about halfway down. The steps of native stone in no way spoil natural features at the approach to the tunnel, and an attempt has been made to retain all the natural beauty of this natural wonder.

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 13, 1960 J.W. THOM, PIONEER DOCTOR, HONORED BY MEDICAL SOCIETY By Phil F. Brogan Central Oregon Medical Soci-

ety members here Monday night honored the region’s pioneer physician. He is Dr. J. W. Thom, of Bend, who came to the sparsely settled interior country in 1904 following his graduation from Hamilton Medical Department in Minneapolis, Minn., seeking a place to locate. He found that Prineville, Antelope, Fossil and Bend all had at least one physician. So he moved to an Oregon outpost where there was no doctor. That outpost was Silver Lake, then the center of a rip-roaring stock country. History was being made at the gunpoint as ranchers cleared sagebrush from land once covered by a huge lake. One of Dr. Thom’s first patients there was a sheep man who had been shot by a cattle rancher. Over a period of 56 years, Dr. Thom has practiced medicine in Central Oregon. He came to Oregon in 1904, after completing his internship at St. Mary’s Hospital in Minneapolis. After coming to Oregon, he spent six months touring the state, looking over a possible location. He reached Bend only a few days after the late Dr. U.C. Coe established practice here. Residents of northern Lake County needed a physician. They offered Dr. Thom $1,000, plus fees he could collect, if he would move there. He accepted the offer, but did not get all the $1,000. Dr. Thom, in a short talk before the Central Oregon medical men, reminisced of some of his experiences in pioneer Lake County, and told of a long night trip by horseback to a rancher’s home, to care for a sick woman. On nearing the ranch on the snow-blanketed terrain, he came smack up against a barbed wire fence. In Dr. Thom’s medical kit was a wire cutter, for such emergencies. He snipped the wires and made his way to the ailing woman. Dr. Thom was a doctor of the horse and buggy days, but frequently made his trips on horseback. Once he spent 24 hours in the saddle. His fee for the sick person he attended in the isolated

Oregon man’s done a lot; now he’s got a country music CD James Payne, pictured with wife Pauline, has cut an album of his cowboy songs called “Old Cowhand” just in time for his 88th birthday.

By Randi Bjornstad The (Eugene) Register-Guard

EUGENE — Family and friends will shower him with gifts and good wishes on his 88th birthday, but James Payne intends to give as good as he gets: His get-together will double as a CD release party, with copies of “Old Cowhand” as the party favors. His voice is suitably gravelly as he sings the tongue-in-cheek title song — he grew up on a farm, but he wasn’t a real cowboy — but it’s husky with real love as he sings “That Little Girl of Mine” in honor of his own daughters, Charlotte and Valerie, and his twang ranks with the likes of Marty Robbins and Hank Williams on the final track, “Cool Water.” In fact, Payne has a peripheral connection with the renowned Williams, who died from a combination of alcohol and the morphine he took for a back injury. He died on New Year’s Day 1953, at age 29. Both Payne and Williams were born in Alabama, Payne in 1922 in Sandy Ridge and Williams the next year in Mount Olive. They never met, “but my brother was a firefighter in Montgomery, and when Hank Williams was really young, he used to come around and shine people’s shoes,” Payne said. “He would have a little guitar on his back, and people would say, “C’mon, Hank, play us a tune.” Payne sang and played guitar, too, but mostly with his family. The cover photo on his CD shows him as a teenager, wearing a cowboy hat and neckerchief, sitting on a steer and strumming a guitar. After his parents died within days of each other when he was 16, Payne decided to leave Alabama. “I was the baby of a generation, and I wanted to see the country, so I joined the Civilian Conservation Corps,” he said. “I landed in Junction City, and my first CCC camp was in Triangle Lake.” He did roadwork, felled trees and put in a lot of telephone lines. After a couple of years, “the CCC camps started folding up, but they still had one in Cottage Grove, and I ended up there.” That’s where he met Pauline

Willis. According to family lore, “Dad won Mom’s heart playing guitar and singing to her,” said their son, Ed Payne, of Bend. Pauline Payne remembers going to the movies every Saturday night “with my sister and our girlfriend, Ruth.” “There were CCC boys all over town, and we were three girls and a bunch of young men,” she said. “We eventually decided we should be friendly with some of them — and he was really cute.” Soon after their marriage, “Uncle Sam called him — it was 1942,” she said, and Payne shipped out to Southeast Asia with the U.S. Army, 96 Signal Battalion, Company C. He strung line there, too, helping create what then was the longest continuous telephone line in the world, running from Delhi, India, to Kao-ming, China. When he returned, he got a job with the contractor husband of one of her students. Payne worked “on a power gang,” using his CCC and Army experience to string lines to new houses in the Cottage Grove area. Soon after, he went to work for Bell Telephone, where he stayed 30 years until he retired. All that time, “I liked to sing and play my guitar,” Payne said. A dark brown Martin guitar — the one he’s had almost as long as he’s been married to Pauline — still sits on its stand in the couple’s living room at the Middlefield Oaks retirement facility in Cottage Grove. “She gave it to me for Christmas

in 1945,” Payne said. “It’s a family heirloom.” Ed Payne remembers a house filled with music as he grew up. “Mom, both sisters and my older brother (Kenneth), now deceased, all played piano and sang some, with Dad and me playing guitars and leading the singing,” he said. “Family and friends’ gatherings almost always included live music by my family and others.” The idea of his father lending his voice to a CD of the countrywestern songs of his youth began to germinate after the elder Payne suffered an aortic aneurysm two years ago. After surgery, three weeks in intensive care and more time in a rehabilitation unit, “my sisters and I made the tough decision to move our parents from their home of 56 years, three miles west of Cottage Grove, into a beautiful retirement center in town,” Ed Payne said. Once settled in, James Payne decided to borrow a cassette tape recorder, with the idea of committing his life history — and his favorite jokes — to posterity. Soon, though, the stories and quips turned to the songs he’d loved to sing in his youth and young adulthood. Becoming a recording artist had its ups and downs, though. “I’d be singing a song, and the clock would start striking, so I’d have to start over again,” Payne said. “Then I’d be singing again, and there would be a knock at the door. This was all new to me.”

range land was $25. “It used to be that doctors went to see their patients — now patients come to see their doctor,” Dr. Thom said. In 1911 Dr. Thom bought a car. By 1924 much of the ranch population of Silver Lake had drifted away. Dr. Thom came to Bend and has been here since. Twice during the meeting, the physicians gave Dr. Thom standing ovations.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 13, 1985 WEAVER SAYS 715 ‘POISONED’ Claims by Rep. Jim Weaver that 715 victims of a salmonella outbreak in The Dalles were “poisoned” possibly by followers of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, resulted in a storm of denials Saturday. “After investigation, I can only conclude — and very positively conclude — that sabotage did take place,” Weaver said. Investigators said they found 715 people who had contracted the disease, and all said they had eaten at one of more than 10 restaurants in The Dalles. “Who would do such a terrifying thing. The assault on the people of The Dalles was like a war on the town. Who would want to do it and have the capability to do it?” Weaver asked. “The poisoning was an insane act, an act of violent hatred, carried on with subtle means. “There must be such a person or persons with the motive and ability to assault this town for it actually happened. Rajneeshpuram,” Weaver said, launching

into a description of the troubles involving the guru and his followers since they moved to Central Oregon in 1981. “Mr. Speaker, I conclude my story by calling for an intensive police investigation of the salmonella outbreak in The Dalles,” Weaver said. Ma Shanti Bhadra, vice president of Rajneesh Medical Corp., said Weaver made his comments on the house floor so “he could hide behind the skirts of the Constitution. It’s outrageous, it’s a cowardly act,” she said. “The Rajneesh Medical Corporation has asked legal counsel to look into it, but I understand that congressmen are privileged and can say what they like,” Bhadra said. It reminded me of the Middle Ages, when the plague was really raging and they were accusing women of witchcraft.” “The sole intention is to get rid of Rajneeshees,” she said, calling Weaver one of several “third-rate politicians playing on people’s fear of the unknown.” Rajneeshpuram Mayor Swami Krishna Deva said “there’s 100 percent no basis” to the claims of any Rajneeshee involvement in the salmonella outbreak.” (Note to readers: One year after Weaver’s speech on the house floor, Ma Anand Sheela confessed in federal court to the poisoning.)

Frankie Jean (Hogland) Rastovich 11/21/1926 – 3/1/2010

Johnny Alf, bossa nova precursor New York Times News Service Johnny Alf, an influential Brazilian songwriter, pianist and singer whose delicately swinging music was a precursor to the bossa nova, died March 4 in Santo Andre, Brazil, just outside Sao Paulo. He was 80. The cause was prostate

cancer, said his manager, Nelson Valencia. Though he was not widely known outside Brazil and enjoyed mass popularity only intermittently in his homeland, Alf, born Alfredo Jose da Silva, was highly regarded among Brazilian musicians.

Frankie Jean passed peacefully in her sleep on Monday morning at her home in Kennewick, WA after a lovely weekend with her whole family and out of town relatives. Like her, and her life, it was a graceful passing. She genuinely delighted in life and every person she met. She never met a stranger. She not only listened – she heard, and in this simple way, she stitched lives. It’s just what she did. Born in Roaring Springs, Texas, Frankie was the first of five children. Her family traveled mining towns throughout the Southwest, eventually settling in Bend, Oregon. As a young woman, Frankie worked at Camp Abbott, an ordinance shop and as a telephone operator, and attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland. She met the love of her life, Mike Rastovich, in Bend and they married on December 10, 1949. After living in Portland and Clarkston, Washington, the family moved to Kennewick in 1957. They raised three children who, as Frankie would say “turned out good, in spite of her or because of her”. Drawn to faith at a young age, Frankie attended church on her own, often with her younger brothers in tow. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Kennewick for over fifty years where she was continually nourished by her church family, flourished in leadership, faith and life and was much cherished. Guided by her faith and innate compassion, Frankie used her gifts of friendship and comfort in service to children through school reading programs, Christian education and the Guardian Ad Litem program; to families through social services; and to individuals as confidant and friend. Over the years she found delight in square dancing, Red Hat Sisters of the Purple Sage, gathering together friends and family, and red toenail polish. She lost Mike, her husband and best friend in 1997, yet she still held with her the twinkle of his eye and a continued zest for life. While snow skiing in her twenties, Frankie received a bad sun burn, which in later years, took some of her sight. Nonetheless, in August of 2009 she went to a camp for visually impaired, loved white-water rafting and was looking forward to tandem sky-diving this summer. Her one gripe in life was daylight savings time. In honor of her, we mention it here to forward her mission to do away with this foolishness once and for all. Frankie believed we teach by the way we live and sought joy in people and new experiences. Her goal was to die young at an old age. Among many favorite sayings was one she said most mornings: “This is the day the Lord has made, and Frankie will rejoice and be glad in it.” And she did just that. Frankie was preceded in death by her mother and father, Minnie and Frank Hogland, her husband Mike Rastovich and her brother Wesley Hogland. She is survived by brothers Doug Hogland, Gerald Hogland and wife Lee, and Gordon Hogland; daughter Michele Rastovich, son Michael Rastovich, his wife Luann and son Joseph, daughter Bobi Wilson, her husband Scott and children Cara, her partner Mike, Teagan and Kirk along with many much loved nieces, nephews and friends. A celebration of Frankie’s life will take place Saturday, March 20, 2:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 2001 W. Kennewick Avenue, Kennewick, WA 99336. Donations in honor of Frankie may be made to the First Presbyterian Church or Edith Bishel’s Center for the Blind, 628 North Arthur Street, Kennewick, WA 99336

‘WELCOME TO ART’ IN COTTAGE GROVE

Student creativity, at home in new dome Volunteers, donations create a space for schoolkids at a time when artistic activities are more likely to be cut By Rebecca Woolington The (Eugene) Register- Guard

COTTAGE GROVE — A board with the words “Welcome to Art” written in wavy, rainbow letters sits next to the doorway of the new London School Art/Science Dome. Surrounding the letters are hearts and squiggly flowers. At a time when art is more likely to be cut from a school’s offerings than added, the dome — 45 feet in diameter with wood siding and white trim — is a space specifically designated for the K-8 school’s 90 students as an art and project center. The structure cost about $400,000 to construct — and the South Lane School District didn’t spend a penny. Instead, more than 80 community members and businesses built the structure, the brainchild

Students Becky McReynolds, 6, Kiaya Wright, 6, Amoline Foerstler and Claire Jenkins, from left, work on an art project underneath the new dome built behind the London School near Cottage Grove. The structure, which cost $400,000 and was funded with donations and built by volunteers, opened in January and already is decorated with students’ and local artists’ work.

“We’re just a little school in the country. If we can pull this off, anybody can. It just takes a community to come together.” — Laurie Briggs, principal, London School

of longtime arts advocate Laurie Mootz. The dome structure was donated by the Gray Family Foundation, Swearengin Family Construction, whose owners have children at the school, served as the project manager, and volunteers broke ground for the project in the fall of 2007. Recently, the school staff led community members on an open house tour of the dome. Students sang a song about gratitude. School Principal Laurie Briggs said she wants the structure to inspire other schools to keep art in their curriculums — even in an era of budget cuts. “We’re just a little school in the country,” she said. “If we can pull this off, anybody can. It just takes a community to come together.” The modern-style dome, jux-

taposed against the 100-year-old one-room schoolhouse at London, is an intriguing image. The dome sits behind the old white and green-trimmed school in a grass field that leads to rolling velvetlike hills of evergreen trees. In front of the dome is a lofty fir tree that Briggs said has been there forever. Walking out to the dome, said Selina Gonzales, the school’s grant-funded art teacher, is an artistic experience in itself. “It’s beautiful, right next to the big tree,” she said. “And the path out there curves, so it’s not just straight.” Inside the spherical structure, a string hangs with cards that have the name of each person who donated time, money or supplies for the building. Though it’s only been open

since January, the dome already is decorated with students’ and local artists’ work. Collages of nature scenes, one with red-leafed trees next to charcoal, ominous clouds, hang on one wall. Ceramic animal finger puppets sit in a glass display case, including a penguin with large, round eyes, and a light brown walrus. Boxes of crayons, paints, colored pencils, baskets of scissors and shelves of paper and art books, including “The World of Van Gogh,” neatly fill the room — a big contrast to how things worked before, Gonzales said. Without her own classroom, Gonzales for years jumped from room to room to teach art, and stored supplies anywhere she could: school closets, her car, her home. The routine severely cramped her creative style. “Before, the idea of papier-mâché was met with ‘Uh-uh, the rooms are carpeted: No!’” she said, giggling. “Now, I can take on bigger projects — like splatter paint.”

CANNON BEACH — ollege students may soon be heading for the coasts of Florida and Mexico to celebrate spring break. If I were their age, I’d choose a nearer beach. And if I were the parent of school-aged children, there’s no question I would take the whole family to the Oregon Coast. For one thing, I’d save a lot of money on travel costs, keeping it close to home rather than flying to a distant destination. For another, I’d have plenty of activities to keep me busy for a whole week. I consider Cannon Beach an ideal base for exploring the northern Oregon Coast. Earlier this month, I spent a couple of nights at the Ocean Lodge, my favorite beach-side oasis, and rediscovered the joys of this Pacific seaside community.

SPOTLIGHT Tour Bend chicken coops You’ve toured the heck out of homes and taken a gander at some great gardens, but if Liz Lotochinski has her druthers, you’ll join the inaugural Chicken Coop Tour in Bend on Saturday, May 8. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., participants will be able to tour somewhere in the vicinity of 25 Central Oregon chicken coops. Tour booklets will serve as tickets and map to coops, at a price of $8 or five items of nonperishable/non-expired food per booklet. Lotochinski has identified about 19 coop stops, and seeks more people interested in making their coop a stop on the tour, which will benefit Together For Children, Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center and Bend’s Community Center’s Feed the Hungry program. Sponsorships are also being sought for the event at $50, $100 and $150 levels. Contact: 541-420-2588, www.bend chickens.com or lizbend5@yahoo.com.

Author Alan Contreras, of Eugene, is seen birding at Steens Mountain in 2004. Contreras began birding when he was 11 and has written a memoir, “Afield: Forty Years of Birding the American West.”

Eugene author Alan Contreras, 54, has been watching birds in Oregon for 43 years. “I started around 1967, when I was a kid at Condon Elementary here in Eugene,” he explained by phone last week. “When I was 11, one of my classmates got a bird book for Christmas and invited me to go out. So, having nothing better to do, having moved to Eugene and not knowing anybody, that’s what I did.” From that trek, when the two saw Band-tailed Pigeons, and his first solo outing, when Contreras spied Cedar Waxwings and a Red-breasted Sapsucker, it’s been a life for the birds for him. It’s no surprise, then, that his

new memoir, “Afield: Forty Years of Birding the American West,” is being billed as a kind of love story by its publisher, Oregon State University Press. Contreras is the former president of Oregon Field Ornithologists and the author of field guides “Birds of Lane County, Oregon” and “Birds of Oregon: A General Reference.” He began working on a first draft of the memoir five years ago, then put it down to complete other projects. It was published in April, followed a few months later by his “Handbook of Oregon Birds: A Field Companion to Birds of Oregon.” Friday, he’ll present both books at Paulina Springs Books in Sisters (see “If you go,” Page C7).

Couple with a rocky marriage kept at arm’s length by friends Dear Abby: “Oscar” and I have been married for three years. We have had many ups and downs and a few near-separations, but we’re now on a better path and working hard on our relationship. Because my friends have seen the rocky times Oscar and I have been through, they are not as nice to him as I’d like. In particular, this applies to my best friend, “Tish,” and her husband. I have tried many times to get us together on double dates, but they always refuse. They socialize with other couples, but refuse to associate with Oscar and me beyond birthday and holiday celebrations. I’d love to have my friends and my husband all together for other social functions. What can I do, if anything? — In the Middle in South Carolina Dear In the Middle: Frankly, you can forget having the idealized relationship with Tish and her husband that you’re looking for. When you confided all the ups and downs you were experiencing with Oscar to them, they lost respect for him. Whether your husband will ever earn it back is questionable. Sometimes that’s the price you pay when you unload your marital problems on your friends instead of working them out with your husband and a counselor. Dear Abby: I recently canceled a party that has been an annual event. I did it because, of 20 invitations I mailed out, only three individuals bothered to respond by the requested RSVP date. This has happened before, and I am tired of trying to guess how many will attend. Some years I have been left with too much food, which went to waste. Other years there wasn’t enough to go around. Now, some of the invitees are upset. I am getting comments like, “I was going to reply,” or “You know we ALWAYS come, so we didn’t think we needed to reply.” I have also received e-mails bemoaning

the fact that I have ruined what was always a fun event. I refuse to allow them to bully me into throwing the party or feel like an ogre for canceling it. And no, I am not asking for advice. I just needed a place to vent about the cluelessness that seems rampant in our society. — Not a Psychic in St. Louis, Mo. Dear Not a Psychic: Because you’re not asking for my advice, I won’t offer any. However, I’m glad you wrote to vent because that’s what I’m here for, and it gives me a chance to remind readers that when they receive an invitation with “RSVP” on it, the RSVP means they should inform their prospective host as soon as possible whether or not they will attend. Not to do so is rude, rude, rude. Dear Abby: My work with seniors often places me in contact with caregivers for loved ones with Alzheimer’s. One woman told me about a gift she received from her son that I think is worth passing along. Abby, he gave her “Tuesdays.” He boxed the word, wrapped it nicely and ceremoniously presented it to her. Now, every Tuesday, she can participate in her church group without having to worry about rushing home to take care of her husband. She can have lunch with her friends, or do whatever she wants. She said that it’s the best gift she has ever received. — Jane in Menlo Park, Calif. Dear Jane: Her son’s gift shows compassion and insight. What he really gave his mother was the gift of peace of mind, and it is one that may add years — and quality — to her life. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby .com or P.O.

“The Pacific” 9 tonight, HBO In 2001, executive producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks presented “Band of Brothers,” a World War II colossus that, arguably, ranks as the best miniseries ever made. But it told only part of the story. While “Brothers” focused on the battles in Europe, this 10-part, Emmyworthy companion piece follows three real-life Marines involved in the brutal conflict with Japan, beginning shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Like its predecessor, “The Pacific” is epic in sprawl and spectacle, but also has an intimacy that allows viewers to get up close and personal with its young American heroes. The series airs every Sunday through May 16.

“Sons of Tucson” 9:30 tonight, Fox And now for a different kind of family sitcom: “Sons of Tucson” is about three young brothers who hire a scruffy slacker (Tyler Labine) to pose as their father while their real dad is in prison. What would Fred MacMurray think? “The Price of Beauty” 10 p.m. Monday, VH1 “Jessica Simpson’s The Price of Beauty” has the pop star traveling the globe to explore beauty regimens in various cultures. First stop: Thailand, for a look at skin bleaching and neck rings.

“FlashForward” 8 p.m. Thursday, ABC Fans of “FlashForward” can rejoice. Your show returns tonight from a long hiatus with a two-hour episode. However, there’s no guarantee that it will make any more sense than it did before.

Pepper is a wonderful 7 year old Border collie mix in search of a loving home. She was surrendered to the shelter because her owners were having trouble containing her. Since Pepper can climb a 5-6 foot fence she would be an excellent candidate for crate training, to keep her happy and safe while the family is away. Pepper is very sweet and loving and would greatly enjoy finding a family that not only has time for a hike on the butte, but also time for a good snuggle afterwards.

P  P Thanks for returning our lost dog to us Our 2-year-old miniature schnauzer got out of the yard one morning recently and led us on a wild chase. We lost track of him near U.S. Highway 97 and Greenwood Avenue. He had no identification on him. For 24 hours we were worried sick until I got a call from the animal shelter that someone had found the dog. I called the number they gave me at the shelter and the wonderful lady said she wanted to bring the dog right over because she knew we must be worried sick. She would not accept the reward, no matter how much I offered. She said the dog had been playing with a paper bag near Greenwood Avenue and Third Street. She had lost a dog only a few weeks ago in the Alfalfa area and it was gone for nine days, so she viewed getting our dog back to us as “payback.” We are so thankful to have our little guy back and so thankful to Melodie Holliday and the folks at the Bend animal shelter for fol-

lowing up and ensuring that this potential disaster for us ended up with a happy ending. And of course we thank God for answered prayers. Mike and Ninive Epstein Bend

Cannon Beach Continued from C1

On the beach The most popular reason to travel to the coast, of course, is to enjoy the beach itself. And the strand at Cannon Beach is awesome. Haystack Rock is the first thing that catches any visitor’s eye. The 235-foot monolith rises like a pyramid from the offshore surf. A rookery for tufted puffins, cormorants, guillemots and other seabirds, the massive rock and its colorful tide pools can be reached by foot at low tide. (Be sure to consult a tide table before you make the walk. If the tide comes in before you do, you’ll either have to brave the riptide — not recommended — or wait 12 hours for the next low tide.) But ocean lovers need not walk to Haystack Rock to appreciate the shoreline experience. As the surf rolls in, large waves crash upon the isolated rock towers flanking Haystack. The spectacle is especially impressive with the approach of sunset, as late-afternoon rays cast their glow through the rocketing spray. When the tide rolls out, this beach is a broad swath of white sand. Beach walkers are sure to find sand dollars (and half-dollars), clam and crab shells, occasional sea stars and other marine denizens. People young and old, frequently accompanied by dogs (and sometimes by colorful kites), make the strand a playground. The Ocean Lodge is a great place from which to observe the beach. Seagulls roosted on the rail of my deck, perched just above the high-tide mark. From my open-air seat, I could watch the tide roll in and out on Haystack Rock. Had the weather been stormy, as it so often is this time of year, a warming fireplace is standard issue in every room. And what I like best is the mezzanine library, where books and videos are free for guests’ use, and where a fine continental-style breakfast is served each morning at no additional charge. During spring break, the Ocean Lodge is offering a series of packages that take the entire family into account, including Fido. Visitors can ask about the kidsstay-free and Sunday-throughThursday (three nights for the price of two) specials.

An arts community Cannon Beach is also a major center for the arts. The weathered Coaster Theatre, built as a roller rink in the 1920s, has already begun its 2010 season of community productions, often featuring a cast from Portland State University. The Pulitzer Prize-winning “Crimes of the Heart” (once a Robert Duvall movie) will open a one-month run Friday. The Coaster is at the south end of downtown, which is actually the northern of three distinct segments of Cannon Beach. My hotel was in Tolovana, the south end; between the two is bluff-top midtown. Each has its shopping and dining attractions, but the lion’s share are in three pedestrian-friendly blocks of downtown. Not only is it nearly impossible to stay out of the art galleries, I can’t fathom why any visitor would want to. Among my favorites is the Bronze Coast Gallery, whose collection of cast sculptures is among the best in the state. The DragonFire Studio has an eclectic and unusual selection of art in many media, from canvases to painted tennis shoes. The Jeffrey Hull Gallery features Cannon Beach’s answer to Thomas Kinkade. Besides the galleries, there are shops aplenty, including Once Upon a Breeze, which sells colorful kites and other beach-side toys. The Cannon Beach Book Co. is the hub of a literary scene that draws noted Northwest writers for workshops and getaway weekends. Dena’s Shop on the Corner is one of several popular women’s boutiques, and antique lovers throng to a curious shop called The Butler Did It. There are numerous dining options near the galleries, including JP’s at Cannon Beach, a family-owned restaurant that serves outstanding seafood plates. But my favorite is Newman’s at 988, located in a bright and tiny yellow house in the heart of midtown. Chef-owner John Newman’s restaurant opened four years ago; his menu focuses on the Mediterranean cuisine of southern France and northern Italy, and it has been a resounding success. A sculpture of a gray whale, labeled “Endangered Species,” sits beside Ecola Creek at the north end of Cannon Beach. It’s a reminder that this section of coastline is considered one of Oregon’s best places for whale watching in the fall and winter. I didn’t see any of the marine behemoths on this trip, but their northward migration from warmer winter waters

Towering rocks, known as sea stacks, dominate the Pacific view from the heart of Cannon Beach. Serving as rookeries for cormorants, guillemots and even tufted puffins, these monoliths are especially stunning in a pre-twilight glow. An immature seagull shares the view from the deck of a guest room at the Ocean Lodge. When the tide is high, it washes nearly to the foot of the lodge; when it’s low, beach lovers can actually walk to 235foot Haystack Rock (in the background) without getting their feet wet.

should be starting any time now. No Cannon Beach visitor should miss Ecola State Park, which embraces forested Tillamook Head immediately north of the town. It’s reached by driving a narrow but well-marked strip of blacktop for a couple of miles through a dense growth of spruce and hemlock trees. Ample parking encourages a short stroll to a picture-postcard lookout point, with views south across the Bird Rocks to the town of Cannon Beach, and northwest to isolated Tillamook Rock lighthouse, battered by waves a halfmile offshore. A moderate and often-muddy 2-mile hike from the parking area leads to remote Indian Beach; it’s a worthy walk for those in search of a little exercise.

The drive north The 25 miles north from Cannon Beach to Astoria, near the mouth of the Columbia River, are filled with plenty to see. Sure, it’s possible to make the drive in little more than a half-hour, but it’s just as easy to take all day. Seaside, Oregon’s quintessential beach resort town, is immediately north of Tillamook Head, an 8-mile hike for hardy Ecola State Park adventurers. But the plea-

A replica of Fort Clatsop, where the Lewis and Clark Expedition spent the rainy winter of 1805-06, stands in a coastal forest outside Astoria. A parcel of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, the fort is reached from a visitor center with an excellent museum exhibit about the explorers. sures of Seaside are more commercial than environmental. Oregon’s answer to Atlantic City (minus the casinos), Seaside was the Northwest’s first oceanfront resort in the late 19th century. Bumper cars and miniature golf, carousels and cotton candy share amusement halls on Broadway with video-game parlors, once penny arcades. An intimate aquarium, the state’s first, occupies an Oceanside building that once was a saltwater swimming pool. Concrete has replaced the original wooden boardwalk, but the town’s famous 1½-mile promenade is as popular as ever. I didn’t linger long in Seaside. After a brief drive through tiny Gearhart — Seaside’s northern neighbor, as tranquil a community as Seaside is frenetic — I proceeded north to Fort Stevens State Park, where the 1906 shipwreck of the Peter Iredale is still a tourist attraction, its rusted hull buried in the wave-washed sand. A coastal defense installation from Civil War times through World War II, Fort Stevens guarded the mouth of the Columbia River. It was the only garrison in the continental United States to be attacked by the Japanese when, in

June 1942, a submarine fired 17 rounds, but the fort incurred no damage. Today, the park’s 3,700 acres include remnants of the gun batteries and a small museum of military history. Mostly, though, it’s a lovely place for hiking and camping among shore pines and grass-covered dunes. Inland a few miles is Fort Clatsop, a replica of the crude stronghold where the Lewis and Clark Expedition spent the rainy winter of 1805-06. This is the main Oregon site of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. An excellent visitor-center exhibit provides orientation to the famed explorers and their epic journey across North America. From there, a very short trail leads to the new fort reproduction. A recent replacement for its predecessor, destroyed in a 2005 arson fire, the log replica of Fort Clatsop is basically a bunkhouse. Three rooms slept eight expedition members each; the leaders and their main sergeants had less crowded quarters, as did the Charbonneau family of Native American scout Sacajawea, her translator husband and their young child. While it’s not the real thing, the replica gives a good sense of what a long winter’s residence must have been like.

In Astoria Just up the road is Astoria, imbued with a historic waterfront flavor. Founded in 1811 as the hub of John Jacob Astor’s New York-based Pacific Fur Co., it soon became an isolated outpost until Oregon Trail pioneers began arriving in the 1840s. Before long, it had become a key industrial center, both for

fishing (especially salmon processing) and logging, shipping timber to San Francisco and points south. Continued next page

Experience a bit of luxury at the Whale Cove Inn For a touch of luxury on the return drive from Cannon Beach to Bend, no place offers more than the Whale Cove Inn. Located just south of Depoe Bay, a twohour (90-mile) coastline drive from Cannon Beach, this luxurious hotel has just eight suites. But each one of them overlooks a pristine cove, rimmed by cliffs with sea caves. In this marine reserve, harbor seals snooze on rocks and whales sometimes venture in, searching for food. Binoculars provided to each room enable guests to keep a close eye on the wildlife, which also includes bald eagles and other avian life. On each deck is an outdoor Jacuzzi tub; in each room, a rain shower, gas fireplace and large flat-screen television. The hotel’s Restaurant Beck is one of the finest dining rooms on the coast. Owner-chef Justin Wills, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., serves a short menu (three starters, five entrees) of dishes that blend Northwest, Pacific rim and Mediterranean flavors. He’s a master of subtlety, encouraging a variety of flavors without allowing any of them to overpower a meal. Owners Carl and Vicki Finseth opened the Whale Cove Inn in December 2007 after razing a previous structure purchased at a

From previous page Huge container ships still ply the Columbia River. Skilled pilots guide the boats through a network of treacherous, shifting sand bars where the great river collides head-on with high seas. Although the river is nearly four miles wide at its mouth, the main channel is only a few hundred feet off the Astoria shore. About 2,000 vessels have been wrecked here, and more than 700 sailors have died, all but a handful before the pilots began their work. Their story is but one of those told at the Columbia River Maritime Museum, on the river just east of downtown. There’s lots more to see in Astoria. Visitors can climb the 164 steps to the top of Astoria Column, overlooking the town from the summit of Coxcomb Hill, for a glorious view of the surrounding area. They can board the Old 300 Trolley, built in 1913, for a narrated three-mile, 40-minute run along the riverfront. They can explore the renovated Liberty Theatre, a 1922 vaudeville palace, and the recently reopened Commodore Hotel, one of several impressive historic restoration projects in Astoria.

The wreck of the Peter Iredale has been buried in the sand at Fort Stevens State Park since the vessel ran aground in 1906. Fort Stevens guarded the mouth of the Columbia River from the Civil War through World War II and was the only mainland U.S. garrison to be attacked by the Japanese. Victoriana, it seems, is everywhere, from the 1883 Flavel House, where a sea captain once lived, to the home of “The Goonies.” First released in 1985, starring a young Sean Astin, Josh

Brolin and Corey Feldman, “The Goonies” is a Steven Spielbergauthored story about a group of kids who embark on a treasure hunt after finding a pirate map. Not only will the chamber of commerce tell visitors how to

find this house (38th and Duane streets, on the east side of town) and many other film locations, it will encourage them to return June 4-7 of this year, when Astoria will host the 25th anniversary celebration of “The Goonies.”

Mrs. Martin has lived in Central Oregon for 63 years, Mr. Martin for 66 years.

Years ago, the rules about breaking up were clear-cut. Done was done. Generally that meant no speaking or interaction unless you were bound by children, work or alimony. No longer. For starters, it’s politically correct to stay in contact. “The person who says she can’t be friends with her ex is seen as unsophisticated and insecure,” write Heather Belle and Michelle Fiordaliso, authors of “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Ex” (SourceBooks Inc.). “And you’re really lame if you can’t handle your boyfriend’s ex.” People are marrying later, which means they’ve typically had multiple relationships and breakups before they make it to the altar. Add to that the fact that half of all marriages end in divorce, and there are a lot of exes to go around. Plus, it’s much easier to stay in touch through social networking, cell phones and e-mail. And you can still run into an ex at a party, which is how a divorced couple started rekindling their relationship in the movie “It’s Complicated,” starring Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin. They portray a pair who were married 19 years and divorced for a decade when they start seeing each other again. Ardent Facebook users snickered when they heard the movie title because it refers to one of the ways people can describe their relationship status, along with “single,” “engaged,” “married” and “in a relationship.” But the truth is that technology has made dating so public now that boundaries get blurry. “The ex world is so much more dynamic and toxic now than it was 10 years ago,” said Belle. “You can become a Facebook friend, e-mail someone secretly and have emotional infidelities with a person from your past without it ever being in your day-to-day life.” Therapists say it’s OK to examine ex relationships but not to live in the past. When that e-mail or text is received, the feelings associated with “the one that got away” overwhelm our brain, says Denver psychotherapist Ben Leichtling. “When we fall in love with

the ex, we get carried away with those teenage fantasies about love and the way we think the romance should have been when we first got together,” said Leichtling. It isn’t about being able to see your ex in a new light or suddenly being able to tolerate their faults. It’s about you wanting something different, Leichtling says. “Your chances are better if you look for someone who matches that difference now.” Time and loneliness tend to delude us, says sex and relationship coach David Wygant. The longer we are single, the more we tend to look backward, getting stuck in a mind-set that we are never going to find someone, much less deserve someone new, says the Los Angeles blogger and author of “Always Talk to Strangers: Three Simple Steps to Finding the Love of Your Life.” That’s when thoughts turn to an ex-spouse, lover, flame or fling and memories start getting selective. Wygant warns that anyone who recycles an ex is being driven by loneliness, insecurity and fear. Daters forget about what caused the breakup — sex problems, an affair, fights about money, etc. Many never embraced the lessons they should have to increase the success of their next relationship. “It comes down to their own confidence level,” he said. When people can’t maintain their own sense of self or regulate their own emotions, they look for partners to pump them up. That process is called “emotional fusion,” said David Schnarch, co-director of the Marriage and Family Health Center in Evergreen, Colo. “(Emotional fusion) is like two people trying to walk with only one leg, holding each other up so both can stand,” says Schnarch, author of “Passionate Marriage.” “You can’t let go of your partner, and you are both constantly affecting each other both positively and negatively.” Schnarch says emotional fusion doesn’t end with physical distance, divorce or remarriage. “They keep going back because they want that validation, emotional regulation and identity they have with this other person,” Schnarch said.

Danielle Forbes displays a cape worn by Elvis Presley that is part of the memorabilia going on a U.S. tour in commemoration of his 75th birthday. The exhibit will eventually end up at his Graceland home.

Elvis (artifacts) on tour Graceland hopes memorabilia will bring more tourists to museum By Steve Johnson Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Elvis had entered the building. Not Elvis Presley himself, mind you. That would be impossible because, of course, the king died almost 33 years ago, on his throne. Any reports to the contrary are the stuff of conspiracy theory or urban legend. It was several of Elvis’ personal effects that visited Chicago’s Tribune Tower recently, perhaps drawn here by the fact that this place, too, was once run by a man named “the Colonel.” There was a suede shoe, size 11, not obviously stepped on, and not blue, but black. “Common misconception: Elvis never had blue suede shoes,” said Kevin Kern, the Graceland publicist who is shepherding the artifacts on a media tour. There was a cape, spangled with beads and baubles, from what is known as the “King of Spades jumpsuit.” Worn, it would have made Presley look like the superhero of Mardi Gras, the count of costume jewelry. Any network with an ounce of taste would have refused to shoot him from the waist up. Of course, there was a “TCB” ring, with an 11½-carat diamond over the “T” and sized to make Super Bowl rings look demure. A big part of the business Presley had to take care of, it seems, was getting things emblazoned with his slogan. The clothing was touring as part of a promotional effort by Graceland, Presley’s Memphis estate — a tourist attraction to some and near-religious shrine to others, with 600,000 visitors a year. The garments come from a new exhibit called “Elvis Presley: Fashion Icon.” It celebrates Presley’s personal style, which evolved to the point where he looked always ready to jump

The exhibit includes 200 items, including some 50 shirts, the same custom suit in each of three colors (green, blue and brownish red), scarves, cologne (Canoe and Brut), a comb and even a couple of guns. “We’ve done the jumpsuits, but we’ve never done an exhibit before which gives the visitor the experience of opening up Elvis Presley’s personal closet,” Kern said. Along with the clothing and accessories, also on hand in Chicago were Presley’s grade-school Crayola crayons — “Elvis” written in red on the box — and a seventh-grade report card suggesting that science would not be his calling. Those items are from a 75thanniversary exhibit that started in January, “From Tupelo to Memphis,” tracing his life from birth, Jan. 8, 1935, to the recording of “That’s All Right” at Sun Studios in July 1954 — “his time as a normal human being,” said Kern. Cirque du Soleil debuted a new show, “Viva Elvis,” in Las Vegas last month. And Graceland material is on loan to the Newseum in Washington, D.C., for an exhibit starting Friday called “Elvis! His Ground-breaking, Hip-Shaking, Newsmaking Story.”

Contreras Continued from C1 He describes it as a personal history mixed with the natural history of Oregon and the West, he says. Contreras says it’s difficult to verbalize what initially drew him to birding. “Birds are colorful. They move around. They are extremely varied from one another, everything from hummingbirds to albatrosses,” he says. “I think that I was at a point, as an 11-, 12-year-old, that it was just fun to be seeing these things that I sort of had never realized were there before. Lots of people know a dozen common birds that show up in their yard, but until you actually start paying close attention, you don’t realize that there are another hundred species in the area that are not that obvious, that you have to go and look for.” Birding has changed in the years since he began casting his gaze upward, largely due to technology. “The equipment is vastly superior. That makes a significant difference,” he says. Guidebooks are better now, too, with color photographs of males and females. Older guides typically illustrated just the adult male’s plumage, “so you would see something and you’d say, ‘Well, it doesn’t really look quite like that, but it looks sort of like that,’ and ‘I wonder if

Graceland’s challenge is to remain fresh, to persuade new folks to visit and people who’ve been there once to stop by again. But making new exhibits (“Fashion Icon” replaces “Private Presley,” about his military life) is also part of a broader effort to keep Presley in the public eye. Most prominent in that effort was the release in January, to coincide with what would have been his 75th birthday, of “Elvis 75,” a collection of top singles from Sony Legacy, which owns the recordings (Lisa Marie Presley controls Graceland and the estate). It is different from 2002’s “301 Hits” mostly in that the new CD has five fewer songs. There are, at Amazon’s Elvis Presley Store, no fewer than 784 albums available, the operational definition of market dilution. Presley has sold 120 million albums, more than anybody except the Beatles and Garth Brooks, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, but his top-selling record, “Elvis’ Christmas Album,” doesn’t crack the Top 100. Still, he remains one heck of a brand: Presley last year was No. 4 on Forbes’ list of the topearning dead celebrities, a tally that doesn’t even include record sales. Attendance at Graceland has remained solid, said Kern — up a little last year over the year before — and roughly half the visitors are 40 and younger, most from within a day’s drive. The attraction, which thinks of itself as historic home first, museum second, is active on Twitter: gracelandnews. Taking the artifacts on a monthlong tour to Graceland’s primary feeder cities is a nice new touch. There is, no denying, a mild thrill to being within hemof-garment distance of the things Presley actually wore and used. And although the tour will cover 19 cities throughout March, don’t look for it on the road. Instead of hitting the highways Elvis-style, in a big, old Cadillac from the singer’s collection, Kern and an archivist were tooling around in a rented Ford Explorer. That’s how people with valuable items to transport take care of business.

that’s what it is?’” Further, the Internet has brought the birds of a feather to flock together virtually, providing a means for communication about events and general reference information. “Things that would have been difficult to figure out on your own, you can now ask other birders in 30 seconds, and you’ll get 25 useful responses,” he says. Contreras lived in Missouri for three years and has made birding trips to probably 25 states, including Alaska, California and Florida. He also has a photo blog at http:// contrerasbirds.blogspot.com. After all these years of birding, what’s left for him to accomplish? “There are only two Oregonbreeding birds that I’ve never seen in the state. One is the

Spruce Grouse, which breeds in the Wallowas,” he said. “I’ve seen it in Alaska and Vermont, but not here. And I’ve never seen a Boreal Owl, which is an owl that occurs only at high elevations in the Blue and Wallowa mountains, and very locally in the Cascades.” He recommends beginning birders hook up with their local chapter of the Audubon Society. In Central Oregon that’s the East Cascades Audubon Society, which formed in January when the East Cascades Bird Conservancy merged with the Central Oregon Audubon Society. “It’s good to go out with people who know what they’re doing, just to get an idea of the basics,” he says. Don’t start with anything too complicated, he advises; just learn the local birds with a basic guide. But do get out there. “There’s no substitute for actually getting out,” he says.

Long haul to the rock hall Iggy Pop takes some convincing that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame really wants the Stooges By Brian McCollum

Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — Seven tries. Seven strikeouts. Surely you can forgive Iggy Pop a little skepticism about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. When he got the news in midDecember — his Stooges had finally, mercifully made the hall of fame cut — the frontman’s reaction was understandable. “My first thought was, ‘OK — now what are they going to do to kick us out?’” The line is followed by Iggy’s familiar cackle, but you get the sense he’s only half joking. Iggy’s favorite version of the Stooges story is that of the snake-bitten band — a tale of bad breaks, missed chances and untimely self-destruction for a group that cut its teeth on the vaunted Detroit scene of the late 1960s. But it’s probably about time we added “redemption” to that list: The little-band-that-couldn’t is now officially the historic force that has. Reunited in 2003 amid hosannas from younger acts who fully grasped the Stooges’ musical import, the band has enjoyed a new lease on limadofe, marred only by last year’s unexpected death of founding guitarist Ron Asheton. On Monday, Iggy and his bandmates — including Asheton’s brother, drummer Scott — will step before a tuxedoed crowd at New York’s Waldorf Astoria to graciously accept induction into the rock hall, joining the 2010 class of ABBA, Genesis, the Hollies and Jimmy Cliff. As is custom, the group will get a performance slot, during which the Stooges will play what Iggy sardonically describes as “our two big hits.” (He won’t divulge names.) He’d given up on the prospect. “It’s an honor,” said the 62year-old Iggy. “And I do think the group belongs there. If you’re going to take the honor at face value — ignoring the corruption that’s endemic to any institution — then it’s great. I mean, Fats Domino! Come on. It’s all the great musicians from a great music form.”

7 times a charm The Stooges became eligible for the rock hall way back in 1994, a quarter-century after the release of their self-titled debut record. What followed was like a replay of the band’s early days, when respect from hipster quarters failed to convert into a broader embrace. Seven times the Stooges made the nomination round, handpicked by a committee of rock experts; seven times they were shot down at the finish line by the 500 writers and executives who make up the hall’s electorate. “I kept hearing it’s a bunch of 40- to 60-year-old guys,” said Iggy of the balloters. “It’s funny to me: I still think like a kid, so when I hear ‘males 40 to 60,’ I think, ‘Ugh, yeah, they hate us.’ Then I realized, wait a minute — that means they’re all younger than me.” That cackle emerges again — a glimpse of the infectious, devilmay-care vibe that still permeates everything Iggy. It was the same spirit that guided classic work like “Funhouse” and “Raw Power,” the latter slated for a deluxe boxed-set release April 13. The Stooges’ primal rock maelstrom, a sinewy blast of punk and metal before those genres had names, was Detroit through and through. The Stooges got a taste of hall of fame pizzazz in 2008, when Madonna enlisted them for her induction performance, welcoming the band onstage as “another ass-kicker from Michigan.” Hours before the show, Ron Asheton had spoken with obvious bemusement about the whole odd affair. “Basically she was upset that we’ve been nominated so many times and never made it, so she asked us to play in protest,” he said. It wasn’t the first time: The previous year’s closing jam session saw inductees whipping up a version of the Stooges’ “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” The Madonna night was to be Asheton’s lone hall of fame appearance. Within 10 months he

ANSWER TO TODAY’S JUMBLE

Love or hate them, it’s all the same Filling the guitar role now is a returned James Williamson, whose gritty, roaring riffs drove the Stooges’ “Raw Power” in 1973. He left the rock ’n’ roll life in 1976, and embarked on a business career that made him a vice president with Sony Electronics. Williamsons’ wife, daughter and son will be on hand for the ceremony Monday the latest high point in what’s been a whirlwind few months since he rejoined the band. Williamson was deep into his globetrotting executive life in the ’90s as the Stooges’ historical revisionism kicked in. Amid the rise of Nirvana, punk’s rebirth and the garage-rock revival, the once-beleaguered Detroit band was getting a positive reassessment, two decades after its inglorious split. “It was astonishing to me,” Williamson recalled. “I didn’t believe it, having lived through the rejection of the Stooges by everybody. Literally, our tours were like death marches through the country. Everyone hated us. “So when people started giving us all these accolades, calling me for interviews, I thought they were just blowing smoke.” Grande Ballroom founder Russ Gibb was in the thick of it all in 1968 when the Stooges arrived on the Detroit scene from Ann Arbor, honing what became a legendary live show. Gibb, who saw Iggy Pop take the Grande stage wrapped in aluminum foil, singing into a prop toilet bowl, is convinced the herky-jerky frontman invented the art of stagediving with his high-charged Detroit audiences. He also gets why the Stooges faced a long haul to the rock hall. It was the same struggle he saw years ago, when the band captivated its hometown while

Rock culture may have couched itself against the conventional establishment, but the Stooges grated against rock’s own established conventions. “Early on, the people who liked them were the avant garde — the kids who had long hair long before anyone else in Michigan, wearing bell-bottoms, who liked their music loud,” said Gibb. “There’s always this group of people who are doing things the great masses don’t catch on to. “Part of the problem the Stooges had is their base was here in Michigan. It became a

very intense fan club. But New York and L.A. didn’t catch on. So the belly of the beast was filled, but nobody else understood what they’d eaten. Iggy put a show to rock ’n’ roll before rock ’n’ roll understood it had a show to put on.” Iggy takes it all in stride. He may not be convinced he’s made it until he’s handed a plaque. He needed some reassurance from friends after the December news. “No, you don’t understand — you’re in it. They can’t kick you out,” he recounts their telling him. “And even if they do, at least you’ve been in it.”

Oregon’s Eaton sets world record Mountain View High graduate establishes a new mark for indoor heptathlon in winning an NCAA title By Noah Trister

Seventh heaven Oregon’s Ashton Eaton secured a world record in indoor heptathlon with some outstanding performances in the seven-sport event. Like the outdoor decathlon, each distance or time is worth a certain number of points in heptathlon competitions: Event Eaton’s mark 60 meters 6.71 seconds Long jump 25 feet, 4 1⁄2 inches Shot put 43 feet, 1⁄2 inch High jump 6 feet, 11 inches 60-meter hurdles 7.77 seconds Pole vault 16 feet, 7 3⁄4 inches 1,000 meters 2 minutes, 32.67 seconds

The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Ashton Eaton’s teammates tried to keep quiet as he approached a world record in the heptathlon — as if the University of Oregon senior was somehow unaware of how close he was to Dan O’Brien’s mark. “I think everybody thought I didn’t know. At least my teammates were trying to be like, ‘Shhh, don’t tell,’ ” said Eaton, a graduate of Bend’s Mountain View High School. “I was like, ‘Come on, you know something like that.’” Eaton broke O’Brien’s 17-year-old mark Saturday at the NCAA indoor track and field championships, finishing the two-day, seven-sport event with 6,499 points.

Mountain View’s Seth Brent (No. 32) pulls down a rebound in front of the Jefferson defense during Saturday night’s Class 5A boys basketball final in Eugene.

So close, Cougars Mountain View stays with Jefferson in the state final before losing, 57-48 By Beau Eastes The Bulletin

EUGENE — It was not a bad run for “a bunch of kids from a snowboarding town.” Mountain View pushed top-ranked Jefferson to the brink Saturday before falling to the Democrats of Portland 57-48 in the Class 5A boys basketball state final at McArthur Court. The Cougars (23-2 overall) led at the end of each of the first three quarters, but Jefferson, behind the play of forward Stephen Madison, rallied late and outscored

Mountain View 21-10 in the final period. “We had them on the ropes,” said Cougar coach Craig Reid. “I’m so proud of these kids. They competed with a national power.” On Friday night, after Mountain View’s semifinal victory over Crescent Valley, Reid said while looking ahead to the championship matchup: “Jefferson’s a regional powerhouse and we’re just a bunch of kids from a snowboarding town.

On eve of NCAA tourney, expansion is hot topic By Pete Thamel and Richard Sandomir New York Times News Service

Former President Bill Clinton sat courtside at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, chatting with the Big East commissioner, John Marinatto. Inevitably, the conversation turned to the potential expansion of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Around the country, from the stands to the locker rooms to the executive offices of television networks, the possibility that the tournament will grow, most likely to 96 teams, has be-

come one of this March’s most heated topics. As the NCAA tournament unveils its 65-team field on what has become known as Selection Sunday, the possibility of radically altering the format — perhaps as soon as next year — is being seriously considered. Although the idea of changing the beloved bracket has been panned by fans and criticized by pundits, the promise of more television money and greater access to the tournament for teams has made change conceivable.

GOLF ROUNDUP

NBA SCOREBOARD STANDINGS

Locally

Track & field

• Climbing film showing Monday: InClimb Rock Gym in Bend is hosting a rock-climbing film titled “The Continuum Project,” by adventure filmmaker Chris Alstrin, this Monday at 7 p.m. Admission is $8 for InClimb members, $10 otherwise. Tickets will be sold at the door at InClimb, 1182 S.E. Centennial Court. Free food and beverages will be available. For more information, call 541-388-6764.

• Jones wins 60M hurdles, sets world indoors record: LoLo Jones recovered from near-elimination in the semifinals to defend her title in the 60-meter hurdles Saturday, setting the record at the world indoor championships in Doha, Qatar, and third-best time ever. Jones set the championships record in 7.72 seconds, 0.03 seconds better than Perdita Felicien of Canada in 2004. Olympic champion Bryan Clay also held on to his heptathlon title, adding to a successful day for the U.S. team. Christian Cantwell won his third shot put title and Debbie Dunn added gold in the 400 meters. Dwain Chambers of Britain beat Mike Rodgers in the 60 meters in a world-leading 6.48 seconds to edge his American rival.

Winter sports • Mackey snatches Iditarod lead: The race is on between Lance Mackey and Jeff King in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race through Alaska. On Saturday, Mackey, the defending champion with three back-to-back wins, snatched the lead, according to global satellite positioning information. King, a four-time champion, had been leading the race but Mackey grabbed the lead by being the first musher to leave the Kaltag checkpoint. The front-runners now head toward the Bering Sea coastline in the 1,100-mile race from Anchorage to Nome. • Karl, Sauerbreij win World Cup snowboard races, Klug is 13th: World Cup leaders Benjamin Karl of Austria and Nicolien Sauerbreij of the Netherlands won parallel giant slalom snowboard races Sunday in Italy. Chris Klug, an American Olympian and a parttime Sisters resident, finished in 13th place. Karl, the Olympic silver medalist, clinched the parallel and overall World Cup title. • American clinches World Cup speedskating title: Tucker Fredricks of the United States clinched the men’s 500 meters speedskating World Cup on Saturday despite finishing fourth in a race in the Netherlands. Jan Smeekens of the Netherlands claimed the race in 35.05 seconds, ahead of countryman Ronald Mulder and Akio Ohta of Japan. Fredricks topped the World Cup standings with 788 points, 46 more than Smeekens.

Football • Seahawks sign TE Baker: A second tight end will go down as the first free agent Seattle added under coach Pete Carroll. Chris Baker agreed with Seattle on a two-year contract Saturday, which was first reported by ESPN. Baker, 30, is an eight-year NFL veteran, who played last season with New England. He caught 14 passes in 2009 and was released. Before that, Baker played seven seasons for the New York Jets. He caught a careerhigh 41 passes for the Jets in 2007. • Browns agree with QB Delhomme: Jake Delhomme has a new NFL home, and the Cleveland Browns have another new quarterback. Delhomme, released last week by the Carolina Panthers, has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Browns, whose quarterback position has been nothing short of a merrygo-round of players. Earlier this week, the Browns acquired backup Seneca Wallace and released Derek Anderson, a one-time Pro Bowl selection who has struggled in the past two seasons. Delhomme is expected to compete for Cleveland’s starting job with Brady Quinn. • Cal adds Akili Smith to staff: California has hired former NFL players Akili Smith and Ronnie Bradford as administrative assistants on the coaching staff. Coach Jeff Tedford said Saturday that Smith will work with the offensive coaches and Bradford will work with the defense. Smith spent the past two seasons as the quarterbacks coach at Grossmont College in San Diego. He played college ball at Oregon when Tedford was an assistant. He was the third overall pick by Cincinnati in 1999 but lasted only four years in the NFL. Bradford played 10 seasons in the NFL with Denver, Arizona, Atlanta and Minnesota.

Horse racing • Zenyatta improves to 15-0, Rachel Alexandra loses: Zenyatta successfully returned to the races, winning the $250,000 Santa Margarita Handicap with an impressive stretch rally and extending her career victory streak to 15-0. The 6-year-old mare made her season debut Saturday at Santa Anita, trailing a field of seven rivals going 1 1⁄8 miles on the synthetic surface before unleashing her trademark late run to win under Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith. Across the country, 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra was upset in her season debut coming after a six-month layoff, possibly jeopardizing the highly anticipated first meeting with Zenyatta in the Apple Blossom next month in Arkansas.

Running • Marathons lead to heart complications?: Marathon runners are at risk for high blood pressure and heart complications, as endurance training can stress the cardiovascular system, researchers said. Marathon runners had increased blood pressure and stiffness in the aorta, the major artery to the heart, researchers said in a study to be presented on March 15 at the American College of Cardiology meeting in Atlanta. Findings from the research were released Saturday. While moderate exercise has a protective effect and people who don’t exercise have a higher risk of developing heart-related problems, exercising too much can do harm, said Despina Kardara, a researcher from the Athens Medical School and Hippokration Hospital in Athens, Ga., and lead author of the report.

Baseball • Beavers win two: Adalberto Santos hit his first home run of the season and the Oregon State baseball team overcame deficits of 4-0 and 5-2 for a 6-5 win over Portland Saturday night at Goss Stadium in Corvallis. Oregon State (9-3) improved to 2-0 on the day after downing Utah, 5-4, in the first game of the day Saturday. Santos hit a two-run home run in the fifth to cut Portland’s lead to one, 5-4. The Beavers then scored two more in the sixth on back-to-back bases loaded walks to Santos and Stefen Romero. • Ducks get doubleheader sweep: The University of Oregon baseball team ran its winning streak to seven games after sweeping Saturday’s doubleheader with Seattle University, 7-3 and 4-0, at PK Park in Eugene. Eddie Rodriguez continued his torrid hitting, going five for six in the two games with three runs batted in. Jack Marder and Danny Pulfer had three hits apiece on the afternoon. The Ducks (12-5) received two more stellar outings by their starting pitchers as Zack Thornton (3-0) and Justin LaTempa (1-1) combined to allow just two runs by the Redhawks (2-11).

Boxing • Pacquiao wins unanimous decision: Fighting on the star, Manny Pacquiao showed once again why he is the star. With the biggest fight crowd in the U.S. in 17 years cheering him on at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Pacquiao dominated a strangely passive Joshua Clottey from the opening bell Saturday night to retain his welterweight title and cement his status as the best pound-forpound fighter in the world. One ringside judge gave Pacquiao every round, while the two others gave him all but one.

Cycling • Contador still leads Paris-Nice: Xavier Tondo of Spain won the sixth stage of the Paris-Nice race in France after a long solo breakaway, and Alberto Contador of Spain kept the overall lead. Tondo broke away after 25 miles of a hilly 136-mile stage from Peynie to Tourrettes-sur-Loup and beat Alejandro Valverde of Spain by five seconds. Contador finished in the chasing pack in 17th place, and Valverde got a sprint bonus to shave six seconds off the Spaniard’s lead. Contador, the two-time Tour de France winner, is 14 seconds ahead of Valverde heading into today’s final stage. • Scarponi wins stage, takes overall lead: Defending champion Michele Scarponi won the fourth stage of the TirrenoAdriatico on Saturday in Italy and took the overall lead. Scarponi, an Italian with the Androni Giocattoli team, holds an 18second lead over Leonardo Vaugrenard in the overall standings.

Basketball • Texas A&M hands Nebraska women first loss of season: Nebraska’s unbeaten season finally came to an end. Now the Cornhuskers will try and regroup for the NCAA tournament. Danielle Adams scored 20 of her 22 points in the second half and 11th-ranked Texas A&M handed No. 3 Nebraska its first loss of the season with an 80-70 upset in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament on Saturday.

Auto racing • IndyCar qualifying postponed until today: Qualifying for the IndyCar season-opener on the streets of Sao Paulo was postponed Saturday because the main straight lacked enough grip to make racing safe. Drivers ran practice sessions on Saturday, giving officials time to try to improve track conditions overnight. Qualifying was rescheduled for this morning ahead of the race. Drivers complained that the temporary circuit for the inaugural Sao Paulo Indy 300 has severe bumps and was dangerous on the slick front straightaway. • Vettel takes F-1 pole: Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull will start Formula One’s season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix from pole position, while Michael Schumacher will start in seventh place in his comeback with Mercedes. Vettel set a fastest time of 1 minute, 54.101 seconds on Saturday to edge Ferrari pair Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso, who have both won at the desert track. Lewis Hamilton of McLaren will start fourth ahead of Nico Rosberg of Mercedes and Red Bull driver Mark Webber. Seventime champion Schumacher, racing for the first time in three years, was 1.423 seconds off of Vettel’s pace, but edged ahead of defending champion Jenson Button in eighth for McLaren. — From staff and wire reports

Ernie Els hits out of the sand onto the 16th green during the third round of the CA Championship in Doral, Fla., Saturday.

Two South Africans share lead at Doral The Associated Press DORAL, Fla. — Charl Schwartzel has been looking up to Ernie Els for as long as he has been around golf. Schwartzel was a toddler when his father and Els played together in a team event they won at a local club in South Africa. He remembers going to his first golf tournament, the Million Dollar Challenge, to watch the Big Easy. He even became an affiliate member of Els’ foundation, traveling with the team of junior golfers. “He was like my big hero,” Schwartzel said Saturday. The dynamics have changed dramatically at the CA Championship. His hero now stands in the way of Schwartzel shining on a world stage. Schwartzel ran off four birdies in the opening six holes, and the 25-year-old South African stayed in the game with three big par putts on the back nine for a 5-under 67. Els, a threetime major champion with 60 victories worldwide, made a few soft mistakes and had to settle for a 2-under 70 to join Schwartzel in a tie for the lead at 12-under 204. Els has rarely been so desperate to win. He is coming off a season in which he failed to win anywhere in the world for the first time since he was a 20year-old playing his first full year as a pro. He has rarely been so pleased with a guy he is trying to beat. “I think it’s a wonderful, cool story,” Els said. “It’s great for South African golf, obviously. A 25-year-old really making his mark this year. He’s won twice. He’s a force to be reckoned with. And I think it’s great. Tomorrow, we shake hands and play 18 holes as hard as we can. He’s going to

try and win. I’m going to try and win.” It will be an all-South African final pairing, three weeks after another World Golf Championship event produced an allEngland pairing in the final of the Match Play Championship. Only in this case, there are loads of other possibilities. Padraig Harrington of Ireland, who had downplayed his chances most of the week, ran off four birdies on the back nine only to have his streak of 26 holes without a bogey end with a three-putt on the 18th. He still had a 67 and was one shot behind. Robert Allenby, somehow, remains in the mix. The Australian missed eight putts from inside 15 feet and was falling out of contention until two late birdies allowed him to salvage a 1-under 71, leaving him only two shots behind. Bob Hope Classic champion Bill Haas nearly holed his final shot on the 18th for a tap-in birdie and a 70. He was three shots behind. Also on Saturday: Collins leads in Puerto Rico RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico — Chad Collins chipped in for eagle on the par-5 second hole to top the Puerto Rico Open leaderboard at 9 under before second-round play was suspended because of darkness in the rain-delayed PGA Tour event. Paul Stankowski, one of only six players to complete the second round, followed an opening 66 with a 70 to join Jeff Overton and Jhonattan Vegas at 8 under. Webb on top Down Under MELBOURNE, Australia — Four-time champion Karrie Webb shot a bogey-free 3under 70 to take a one-stroke lead in the Women’s Australian Open.

NHL ROUNDUP

Flyers top Blackhawks with goal in final seconds The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Chris Pronger scored with 2.1 seconds left to give the Philadelphia Flyers to 3-2 comeback victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. The defenseman took a pass from Claude Giroux and beat Cristobal Huet to the glove side to cap a five-goal third period. The Flyers tied it with 2:04 left when Scott Hartnell corralled Kimo Timonen’ pass near the blue line and beat Huet for his first goal since Jan. 30. Simon Gagne opened the scoring for Philadelphia 1:18 into the third with his sixth goal in seven games.

Cougars Continued from D1 “We felt like if we could get up early the pressure would be on them,” said Cougar forward Mark Claar, a second-team all-tourney selection who had 10 points against Jefferson. “If it was close late, we figured we had a chance.” Mountain View came right after the Democrats from the start and led 6-4 at the end of the first quarter and 23-22 at halftime despite nine turnovers. Claar hit two three-pointers in the first half, while Reid had five his 11 points before the break. “For three quarters we played with one of the best teams on the West Coast,” said Brent, who was also named to the all-tournament second team. “Give them credit. They were the better team. We did everything we could possibly do and they won.” Jones led Jefferson with 11 points in the first half, scoring half of the Democrats’ 22 points. The Cougars’ 2-3 zone defense was especially effective early, as Jefferson hit just nine of its first 28 shots and was just two of

15 from the three-point line. In the second half the Demos shot considerably better, connecting on 11 of their 23 shots after halftime. “We got a little tired,” said Craig Reid, whose squad shot 40 percent from the field (18 of 45) but went to the free-throw line just eight times. “We played eight kids for three days straight.” The 2009-10 Cougars ended the season, though, with the best boys basketball finish in Mountain View history. The Cougars also were only the second high school from Bend to ever play in a boys basketball state title game. (Bend High lost to Ashland 55-35 in the 1944 “A” state final.) A victory Saturday night would have made Mountain View the first boys basketball state champion from Central Oregon since Redmond won the title in Class 4A (then the state’s highest classification) in 2003. “I couldn’t be any prouder of these kids,” Craig Reid said. “These kids from a little town like Bend, and we had (Jefferson) on the ropes.” Beau Eastes can be reached at 541-3830305 or at beastes@bendbulletin.com.

5 A B OYS BA S K E T BA L L S TAT E TO U R N A M E N T

Storm go cold, settle for sixth place at state Bu lletin staff report EUGENE — The same Summit basketball team that had shot the lights out Friday at McArthur Court just one day later could hardly score at all. The Storm were outscored 11-0 in the first quarter Saturday and, except for a flurry by Mitchell Wettig early in the second period, were never really in the game against Wilsonville, which throttled Summit 44-19 in the fourthplace final of the Class 5A boys state tournament. Saturday’s setback brought a disappointing end to the best boys basketball season in Summit High’s nine-year history. And the lopsided nature of the defeat was surprising, especially after the Storm had looked impressive Friday in their 70-63 victory over Glencoe in the fourth-place semifinal round. But Wilsonville was a formidable opponent. The Wildcats (26-3) ended the regular season as the No. 2-ranked team in the state 5A coaches poll. They were the No. 1 seed from the Northwest Oregon Conference, and they thumped Pendleton, the No. 2 seed from Summit’s Intermountain Conference, 55-47 in Friday’s other fourth-place semifinal. The Storm (15-15), No. 4 from the IMC, figured to have their hands full Saturday against a Wildcat team that managed to stay close with top-ranked powerhouse Jefferson of Portland

in a 49-41 quarterfinal loss on Thursday. “It’s too bad we ran out of gas today,” said Summit senior forward Justin Huckins. “We just didn’t have it in us.” The Storm missed all seven of their shots from the field in the first quarter, which ended with Wilsonville up 11-0. Wettig almost single-handedly kept the Storm from being blown out in the first half. The 6-foot-4inch junior, a reserve wing, sandwiched two three-point baskets around a two-pointer during a 95-second span early in the second quarter to get Summit within 14-8 with 5:50 left in the first half. The Wildcats led 21-10 at halftime, and they outscored the Storm 14-2 in the third quarter, when Summit shooters again went stone cold, making just one of eight attempts from the field. The Storm also committed six turnovers in the decisive third period. Against Glencoe on Friday, Summit played assertively on offense and did a lot of its damage from the foul line, converting 17 of 24 attempts. Against Wilsonville, the Storm shot not a single free throw. Wetting finished with 13 points on five-of-11 shooting that included three three-point baskets. No other Summit player scored more than two points. Senior post Matt Meagher led the Storm on the

boards with five rebounds. For the game, Summit shot just 25.8 percent from the field (eight for 31). Wilsonville got a game-high 14 points from post Seth Gerhart, and Wildcat forward Michael MacKelvie posted a doubledouble with 13 points and 13 rebounds. When the game — and their season — was over, the Storm collected their school’s first state trophy for boys basketball (sixth place) and reflected on what they had accomplished in 2009-10. “It’s pretty special to be one of the last six teams in your division to still be playing,” said Dan Munson, the Summit coach. “These guys found a way to overachieve. “These seniors set the bar high,” Munson added. “They developed a tradition here (at Summit).” The Storm started five seniors in all three of their games at the state tournament. “We wanted to start a program, not just have a good team,” said Huckins. “I’m really proud of the way we bounced back (from Thursday’s quarterfinal loss to Crescent Valley to beat Glencoe in the fourth-place semifinals). That showed exactly what we’re about.” “I couldn’t be more proud,” said Munson. “These guys achieved greatness. This is like the state championship trophy in our eyes.”

4A GIRLS BASKETBALL S TAT E TO U R N A M E N T

La Pine takes third place with consolation win Kassi Conditt scores a game-high 15 points as Hawks defeat Central Bulletin staff report CORVALLIS — For a team that was only third in its own league, taking third at state is something to shout about. A year after winning the Class 4A girls basketball state championship, La Pine on Saturday claimed its second state trophy in as many seasons, drubbing Central 36-20 in the third-place final at Gill Coliseum. “At first it’s a little disappointing, because you’re not playing for the championship,” said Kim Beer, the Hawks’ head coach. “But you get past that, and I’m really happy for the girls. It’s a great feeling to end with that win.” La Pine, the No. 3 team from the Sky-Em League, saw its chance at a state-title repeat slip away Friday night with a 52-40 semifinal loss to leaguerival Cottage Grove. Beer said he believed his team was naturally disheartened by the defeat — and it showed in the early going Saturday afternoon against ValCo League champion Central. The Hawks made only one basket in the first period against the Panthers (22-6) and trailed 8-3 going into the second quarter. “I think we came in a little draggy, a little disappointed after last night,” said Beer. Central packed its zone defense and challenged La Pine to shoot from the outside. That posed a problem for the Hawks (21-10), who were without one of their better perimeter shooters: Sammie Mellott, a senior wing, injured a knee late in Friday night’s game and did not suit up for Saturday’s contest. That meant others had to step up, and among those to answer the call was Ryan Fogel. A sophomore guard who played sparingly in La Pine’s first two state tourney contests, Fogel entered the game against Central in the second

quarter and gave her team an instant lift. First, she assisted on a layup by Kassi Conditt that pulled the Hawks within 10-9. Later in the period, Fogel made two consecutive mid-range jump shots that put La Pine ahead 15-12. The Hawks would lead the rest of the way. “Ryan gave us a spark,” said Beer. “She brought in some energy and was hustling after loose balls and really helped get us going.” Outscoring the Panthers 13-4 in the second period, La Pine held a 16-12 halftime lead. The Hawks’ defense dominated the second half, in which Central made only one field goal — a jumper by Brianna Berg with 5:02 remaining in the third quarter. “We played probably our best defense that we’ve played here (at the state tournament),” said Beer. Fogel finished with seven points, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes of playing time, and the La Pine regulars all made meaningful contributions as well. Conditt scored a game-high 15 points. Meagan McReynolds booked nine points and a gamehigh four assists. Brittany Glenn was credited with a team-best five steals. And Casey Wright led the Hawks in rebounds with seven. Berg was the leading scorer for Central with 12 points to go with her seven rebounds, five blocked shots and five steals. For the Hawks, Conditt was named to the all-tournament first team, and Wright was named to the second team. La Pine’s victory gave the Sky-Em League the top three 4A state trophies. Later Saturday night in an all-Sky-Em final, Cottage Grove edged Marist of Eugene 53-51 for the tournament championship.

Jerome Randle halved the Huskies’ lead on a three-pointer with 1:02 left, and Pondexter committed a turnover — but Randle was fouled on a loose ball with 4.4 seconds left, preventing him from trying a tying three. The Pac-10 player of the year made the first shot and missed the second intentionally, but Randle was called for stepping over the line too quickly before Jamal Boykin could grab the rebound, and Overton’s free throws sealed it for Washington. Theo Robertson scored 25 points and Boykin added 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Bears, whose six-game winning streak ended in a fitting final between the Pac-10’s last two regular-season champions. Randle managed just 12 points while battling foul trouble.

PAC - 1 0 TO U R N A M E N T

LOS ANGELES — Only a few hundred Washington fans were left in Staples Center when the celebrating Huskies started an impromptu dunk contest. They tried one elaborate slam after another on the net-less hoop, their purple Pac-10 tournament title hats flying off their heads to the barking crowd’s delight. Now that these Huskies are rolling after an inconsistent season, they just don’t want to put down the basketball. With a thrilling 79-75 victory over California to win the conference tournament Saturday, they assured themselves of at least one more big-time game together. Quincy Pondexter scored 18 points, Isaiah Thomas added 16 and Washington furiously rallied from a late deficit before barely protecting its own lead. Venoy Overton hit two free throws with 2.1 seconds left for the third-seeded Huskies (249), who emphatically salvaged their up-and-down season with seven straight wins — none more entertaining than this back-and-forth finale. “What a college basketball game,” said coach Lorenzo Romar, who triumphantly cut the last strand on the net before holding it aloft to Washington’s fans. “It was obvious something was on the line for both teams. I couldn’t be happier to see these guys experience a championship-type situation.” The Huskies brought the net and the Pac-10’s automatic NCAA tournament bid home to Seattle with a come-from-behind win over the top-seeded Golden Bears (23-10), who also are almost certainly headed to the NCAAs with their first regular-season league title in a half-century. “We’re going to be able to sleep tonight — finally, man,” said Pondexter, the Huskies’ only senior. “There’s so many questions that come about, but we told each other that if we take care of business, we don’t need a committee to tell us if we’re good enough.” After a four-day tournament filled with blowouts and poorly played games, Cal and Washington finally put on a show worthy of the Staples Center stage — albeit in front of thousands of empty seats. Both teams made impressive rallies while the lead swung wildly in the final minutes. Cal trailed 61-52 with 11 minutes to go before scoring 14 consecutive points and holding Washington scoreless for more than 5½ minutes. The Bears led 66-61, but the Huskies made their own 12-2 rally, reclaiming the lead with 3:22 left on a

Continued from D1 “The opportunity to decide what’s going to happen with our revenue is a big deal,” said Greg Shaheen, the senior vice president for basketball and business strategies with the NCAA. “It’s what a lot of institutions rely on for their athletic programs. That’s a centerpiece to why all this happens. It’s easy to say you don’t want change. But simply put, it’s what’s appropriate to operate in our best interest.” Many models, including a 68team tournament, have been suggested. Most discussions have involved a 96-team field. Expansion is essentially a numbers game, driven by the potential for more television revenue. The NCAA, which generates about 90 percent of its revenue from the men’s tournament, has a July 31 deadline to decide whether it will opt out of the three years remaining on its 13-year, $6 billion contract with CBS. The most obvious suitor is ESPN, which broadcasts hundreds of college basketball games on its array of networks but spends the postseason broadcasting the second-tier National Invitation Tournament. “College sports is a significant part of the culture of our company, and we have a wonderful position in college basketball,” said John Skipper, ESPN’s executive vice president for content. He added, “We love our involvement, and it feels somewhat unfulfilling to stop before the end of the year.” CBS’s contract with the NCAA is heavily backloaded, scheduled to pay $2.13 billion for the rights to the tournament over the final three years. If the tournament expanded and remained on CBS, the network would probably have to strike a deal with a cable partner to carry some of it. ESPN owns enough networks to broadcast the entire tournament. Either option would probably eliminate the regional airing of early-round games and could generate significantly more revenue. Shaheen said it was a misconception that the NCAA was aiming to command greater attention over a longer period because the expanded tournament would still be played in a three-week window. In the 96-team model, he said, the top 32 teams would get a first-round bye. Shaheen said that since the tournament last expanded significantly, in 1985, the number of Division I men’s basketball teams had increased to 343 from 284. In 1985, the television contract was worth $27 million. The final year on the current deal pays more than $750 million. “That puts in perspective how far we’ve come in 25 years,” Shaheen said. “How best to move forward is really our focus. The reality of this great event is that it’s buoyed us.”

“Honestly, this year is the argument for 48 [teams]. This year’s field is so horribly unaccomplished compared to the last few years.” — Jerry Palm of CollegeRPI.com

Although the tournament has carried the NCAA, the issue has become divisive in college basketball circles. This year, the quality of teams on the NCAA bubble has been particularly low, and the notion of adding more weak teams to the tournament is not particularly appealing to some. “Honestly, this year is the argument for 48,” said Jerry Palm, who runs the Web site CollegeRPI.com and does commentary for CBS College Sports. “This year’s field is so horribly unaccomplished compared to the last few years.” Most coaches who have voiced opinions are in favor of expansion. But they will ultimately have little say as Jim Isch, the NCAA’s interim president, and the 18 university presidents and chancellors on the Division I board decide on the TV contract and the tournament’s format. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim went so far as to say that “any coach that is against expansion is not a good brother.” Boeheim said he thought that adding teams would be a step forward. “This tournament has been expanded four or five different times,” he said. “The only reason now people don’t want it is it fits in a nice little pocket. Maybe we only need five, six or seven teams, but that doesn’t make any financial sense.” But a small segment of coaches have said that bigger may not be better. “It takes away from the special nature of it,” said Steve Donahue, who has coached Cornell to the NCAA tournament for three straight years. “It’s supposed to be an incredible award for a great, great season. If you

expand it, it’s not that. Everyone thinks more is better. It’s not.” Davidson coach Bob McKillop went a step further. “Isn’t this whole thing a window into society?” he said. “We’ve diminished so many other things. We’ve diminished test scores. We’ve diminished admission policies. We diminish so much for reasons that are not accentuating excellence and performance. It’s almost too inclusive.” One factor that must be considered is the effect of an expanded tournament on the regular season. With mock tournament brackets released before practices even begin, many teams essentially spend the regular season jockeying for postseason slots and positioning. Marinatto said he told Clinton that if the tournament expanded to 96, every Big East team would have a chance to qualify. That may be a stretch, but the expanded tournament would certainly alter some of the fundamental tensions of the season. Coach Tom Izzo of Michigan State said that more tournament invitations might eliminate the practice of teams from power conferences scheduling a dozen so-called “buy games” against weak teams each season to pad their records. That would help midmajor programs that struggle to find quality opponents for home games. They are pushing for the NCAA to give automatic bids to both their regular-season and postseason conference champions if the tournament goes to 96 teams. Izzo said that teams from the six power conferences might feel more comfortable upgrading their schedules because they would have more margin for error in the regular season. Between now and July 31, the debate will continue. “Let’s just be real,” Nebraska coach Doc Sadler said. “It doesn’t matter what you think or I think. It’s going to come down to dollars and cents. They can talk about all the other things, but if it makes sense financially, it’s going to happen. If it doesn’t, it’s not going to, no matter.”

D6 Sunday, March 14, 2010 • THE BULLETIN

Eaton Continued from D1 With the crowd of 5,475 at Randal Tyson Track Center on its feet urging him on, Eaton surpassed the old record of 6,476 points by running a personal best in the 1,000 meters. Eaton finished the 1,000 in 2 minutes, 32.67 seconds — nearly two seconds faster than needed for the world mark. His previous career best was 2:38.02. “I didn’t think I was going to have what it took to get it,” Eaton said. “I was like … ‘I guess I’m just going to run as fast as I can.’” Eaton’s performance was not quite enough to lift Oregon to the men’s team title, which went to Florida. The Ducks did win the women’s title, though. Brianne Theisen of Oregon gave her team an early boost, winning the pentathlon with 4,396 points. Theisen was competing in the pentathlon long jump while Eaton ran his heptathlon 1,000. It was a welcome distraction. “Right between my first and second jumps, I was screaming at him the entire time,” she said. “I think I jumped so well because I wasn’t even thinking about the long jump. I just did it.” Between Eaton and Theisen, Oregon has now won six national titles in combined events in the last three years, between the outdoor and indoor national championships. Eaton is the two-time defending NCAA champion in the decathlon, while Theisen is the reigning champion in the women’s outdoor heptathlon. Duke’s Curtis Beach finished 12th in the heptathlon, but he ran the 1,000 in 2:27.88, which is believed to be the fastest anyone in the world has run a heptathlon 1,000. The heptathlon includes the 60 meters, long jump, shot put, high jump, 60-meter hurdles, pole vault and 1,000 meters. Eaton was the meet’s top performer in four of the first five sports Friday and Saturday, putting himself in a position to make a run at O’Brien’s record. After breaking that mark, Eaton came back later to run in the 1,600 relay, although Oregon finished sixth. At the same time as the NCAAs, the world indoor championships were taking place in Doha, Qatar. Eaton’s score easily would have won the pentathlon there, as American Bryan Clay won with a score of 6,204 points. The top performance of the night, other than Eaton’s, was probably by Hampton’s Francena McCorory, who set an American record of 50.54 seconds in the 400. Georgia’s Torrin Lawrence won impressively in the men’s 400 in 45.23. Florida’s Jeff Demps, who also plays football for the Gators, won the 60 in 6.57. Texas-El Paso’s Blessing Okagbare took the women’s 60 in 7.172 seconds — .003 of a second ahead of Texas A&M’s Gabby Mayo. The Florida men finished with 57 points. Texas A&M and defending indoor champion Oregon tied for second at 44. Oregon won the women’s race convincingly, finishing with 61 points. Defending champion Tennessee was second with 36. The Florida men and Oregon women each won the indoor title for the first time.

WORLD CUP SKIING

Riesch wins slalom title for Germany The Associated Press

April L. Brown / The Associated Press

Oregon’s Ashton Eaton, a senior from Bend, reacts as he crosses the finish line to place third in the 1,000 meters competition of the indoor heptathlon during the NCAA Division I indoor track and field championships in Fayetteville, Ark., Saturday. Eaton broke the world record in the indoor heptathlon.

GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany — Olympic champion Maria Riesch of Germany won her second straight slalom World Cup title with a third-place finish in the final race of the season on Saturday. Marlies Schild of Austria won the race by a big margin, with teammate Kathrin Zettel placing second. But Riesch’s third place was enough to give her the slalom title with 493 points, just three ahead of Zettel. “It was not a very good day on the slope for me,” Riesch said. “The first run was not good at all, and in the second I never managed to release the hand brake. I was really very, very lucky to get the title.” Riesch, who won the combined gold medal at the Olympics, could have lost the title if Zettel had won. Schild, the Olympic silver medalist, had a comfortable lead after the first run and increased it to a massive 1.20 seconds over Zettel. Schild clocked an aggregate time of 1:49.57. Riesch was 1.90 seconds behind in third. Schild’s 21st slalom career victory moved her into a tie with Erika Hess of Switzerland in second place on the all-time list for slalom wins. Vreni Schneider of Switzerland had 34. Schild also has two other wins. Riesch also won the world championship slalom title last year. She finished second in the overall standings this season behind good friend Lindsey Vonn of the United States. Vonn clinched her third straight title by winning Friday’s super-G race and then decided to skip the final event. She watched the race in the finish area. Riesch’s slalom title and Felix Neureuther’s victory in the men’s slalom set the stage for a massive party in the German resort that will stage next year’s world championships. Riesch and Neureuther come from Partenkirchen. Also on Saturday: Herbst of Austria wins men’s slalom title GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany — Reinfried Herbst gave Austria its only men’s title of the season, clinching the slalom crystal globe in the final race on Saturday. Ted Ligety of the United States, who clinched the giant slalom title Friday, clipped the first gate of the second run and dropped out. Felix Neureuther delighted his hometown crowd by posting the fastest second run after finishing fifth in the first. He finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 43.63, with first-run leader Manfred Pranger of Austria finished second, 0.29 seconds behind. Olympic bronze medalist Andre Myhrer of Sweden was third. Herbst won the title ahead of Julien Lizeroux of France, who finished fourth.

JOHN COSTA

In the health care debate,

Westlund’s journey I f ever there was a person who gave life to the notion that there are no cardboard cutout heroes in this world, it was Ben Westlund. That’s not to denigrate the memory of the former state treasurer, who died a week ago. It’s simply to make him more human and understandable as a political leader who did a lot of good at the same time he angered and confused a lot of people, including onetime allies, supporters and voters. The same could be said of FDR, LBJ, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and virtually anyone else with their calling. Even Abraham Lincoln, as a lawyer, once represented a slaveholder trying to reclaim a black man. There are very few perpetually straight lines in American politics. But even by that standard, Westlund took the scenic route on his political journey. A frequent visitor, Westlund was very well-known at The Bulletin. Given his elected positions in the Legislature, and his subsequent position as state treasurer, he liked to visit and, lordy, did he like to talk. Sometimes he made an appointment, but often we’d get a call from him asking, “I’m in the parking lot, have you got a few minutes?” Of course those minutes would stretch literally into hours. On one visit, he came in at 3 p.m. and left sometime after 5 p.m., only after we threatened to call his wife, Libby, and have her haul him away. After that, the punchline to any Westlund call was, “Hi, I’m in the parking lot, have you got three hours?” I got to know Westlund well when he was in the Legislature and I was a member of the committee that helped formulate the Central Oregon campus of Oregon State University. That he was instrumental in getting the branch for Central Oregon goes without saying. It may have been his greatest legislative accomplishment. What was far more important to all of us, however, was that he was the elected state official who most believed it could be done when virtually everyone else said we were tilting at windmills. Unlike most, he thought it could be done, and he fought for it, and that meant a lot. That explains some of the hostility Westlund engendered when he began his political transformation from Republican to Democrat with a rest stop as an independent. Accustomed to counting on him, many thought they didn’t know or trust him anymore. He wasn’t just a Republican who, on the road to Salem, was struck by Democratic principles. He was state chairman for Kevin Mannix, the darling of the pro-life, right wing of the Republican Party. He was an ardent critic of Democratic Gov. Ted Kulongoski. I know. I listened to him. He was also a leader in the effort to ban gay marriage. Then presto, he changed. He ran for governor as an independent, then pulled out and endorsed, after reportedly telling some people he wouldn’t, Kulongoski’s re-election against Republican Ron Saxton. He then accentuated his solidarity with unionized workers, particularly public employees, and ran for treasurer with their support. And he saw no conflict in this transformation. He said this was a matter of principle, though for many it had the odor of rank opportunism. In any case, the very good part of Westlund, something not shared by many partisans, is that he kept coming back to talk and argue with the editorial board no matter how aggressive the editorials. And he tried to maintain a personal connection. I wrote a column a year or so ago about my love for the New York baseball teams, except the Brooklyn — now Los Angeles — Dodgers. He sent me a note declaring, as a native Californian, his love for the Dodgers and pitcher Ralph Branca. I replied that I fondly remembered Branca, too, particularly when he threw the shot heard around the world to Bobby Thomson, allowing the New York Giants to go to the World Series. I’m sorry that I never heard from him again.

NO WILL

TO CUT Both parties are side-stepping the larger issue of long-term costs By David Leonhardt • New York Times News Service

F

or anyone who cares about medical costs — which is to say anyone who cares about the take-home pay of American families or about the budget deficit — President Barack Obama’s health

care reform plan is a terribly mixed bag. It does so much less than the ideal plan would do. It would not come close to eliminating Medicare’s long-term budget deficit. It would reduce that deficit only if a future Congress did not tinker with the various taxes and spending cuts scheduled to be phased COMME in over the next decade. On the other hand, the plan would make progress in all sorts of areas. Insurance exchanges would create more competition. A Medicare oversight board would gain authority over reimbursement rates. Hospitals that committed certain medical errors — harmful, costly errors — would face financial penalties. So, which matters more: what the plan does, or what it fails to do? It’s a tough call,

and the answer depends on what you see as the alternative to the current plan. If the past year of health care debate has offered a single lesson, it’s that the politics of cutting costs are miserable. We pay for most of our health care N T A R Y indirectly, through taxes or paycheck deductions, which lulls us into thinking that the care is somehow free. As the Stanford economist Victor Fuchs notes, many Americans say they want to control costs — but oppose just about any policy to do so. It should be no surprise that politicians do the same. In recent weeks, critics have done a nice job highlighting flaws in the White House plan (which Congress is now turning into an actual bill). What the critics have not done nearly so well, however, is explain which politically realistic plan they prefer. See C ost s / F5

Drop gas tax ban on cities

P

aul Romain’s job is simple: Do what he can, when he can, to advance the wishes of the Oregon Petroleum Association’s members, mainly fuel distributors and gas stations.

To that end he’s fought hard to keep proposed local gas taxes off the ballot around the state and has vowed to take the city of Sisters, where voters approved a 3-cent tax earlier this week, to court. Romain argues that the tax, which was adopted by the City Council last August, is illegal because voters did not approve it in an advisory election until this month. The law bars communities from adopting a tax from last September until 2014. It’s unclear under the law, though, if that means Sisters missed the deadline. Romain has said that he would do whatever it took to see that no communities were brazen enough to actually add the tax, and he’s being true to his word. He’s doing so, unfortunately, at the expense of the people of Oregon. Sisters residents are like those of us in many communities: They know their city has too little money coming in to do all the things its citizens want done. The gas tax, if it is not overturned, will help ease the situation that not only brings money in to city coffers, but gets the community’s many tourists to pick up a portion of the tab.

The result is that streets in Sisters will be better maintained than they would had the tax not been approved. The gas tax won’t provide all the money for street maintenance, of course, but it will mean the difference for some street problems. The state, meanwhile, continues to struggle with its own lack of funds for highways. It looked at a mileage tax that would have hit hardest those who drive the most. It has looked at using tolls to build new highways, but the response from Oregonians has been negative. It fell back on a straightforward gas tax increase as a kind of final resort. Even that won’t answer all the state’s problems. A city gas tax ban only increases the problems for communities that find themselves in the same bind. If lawmakers do nothing else when they meet next year, they should give cities back the right to tax gasoline.

Drivers’ cell phone use should be stigmatized

O

regon drivers have been prohibited from using hand-held cell phones for more than two months, not that you’d know it by standing on a sidewalk and watching traffic pass. If there’s a rule of the road that motorists take less seriously than the phone ban, we don’t know what it is. Then again, maybe most of those chat-happy motorists are making job-related calls, using a giant loophole in the law that practically invites noncompliance. If it’s any consolation, compliance doesn’t seem to be much better in Washington state, where using hand-held phones behind the wheel has been a no-no for a couple of years now. There are differences between our law and theirs, of course. Most significantly, phone use in Washington is not a primary offense. That means cell phone rebels can be fined only if they’re pulled over for other reasons. Still, the message is the same: Phoning while driving is unsafe. On Tuesday, a University of Washington communications professor released the preliminary results of an audit of cell phone use by Seattle drivers. Scores of students gathered the data by lurking at busy intersections and taking notes. Of the drivers

observed, one in 16 was using a handheld phone. The students also noticed some “impressive multitasking,” including “combinations of eating, smoking, putting on make-up, driving with pets in laps, and using a cell phone.” Fifty-five percent of the chatters were male, by the way, though 57 percent of those judged to be younger than 25 were female. Why do people continue to engage in behavior that is both illegal and dangerous? The trend can be explained in Washington, at least partly, by the fact that phoning while driving isn’t a primary offense. But the University of Washington report offers a second explanation: “such unsafe behavior may not be consistently stigmatized.” Those who phone while driving ought to feel ashamed of what they’re doing. But lawmakers can’t stigmatize behavior. That job belongs to the rest of us. There may be yet another solution, however. “The one consistent qualitative observation made by the research team members,” says the report, “was that the drivers who used a cell phone while driving were almost always alone in the car.” Who says car pooling improves only traffic flow and air quality?

My Nickel’s Worth Try cutting salaries The front-page article in a recent Bulletin (Feb. 22) reports that “City officials explore options, including a levy and property tax, to avoid cutting fire and police services.” Further, if additional funds cannot be found the city “faces a $21 million shortfall in the next six years.” The article goes on the say Bend’s officials are focused on two ideas to generate revenue by annexing the city into a rural fire protection district, or asking voters to approve a levy to pay for these services. In other words, no matter which option is chosen the taxpayer loses. A consultant for the city of Bend is making a survey of 400 people to determine how much support there is for each option. How much is the consultant costing us? I have another idea; reduce the pay of each city employee by a percentage sufficient to cover the shortfall. In other words, the city should learn to live within its means. How much of a reduction would that be, 1 percent, 2 percent? The council members should publish that option and let the taxpayers, (property owners), be fully informed. A recent Bulletin article noted that an average of 150 people, per month, are losing water service due to lack of money to pay their bills. How many are losing electric and gas service for lack of funds? Official unemployment is around 15 percent, with the underemployed at more than 20 percent. Foreclosures and personal bankruptcies are at an all-time high, and yet the city officials have no qualms in asking

the citizens for more funds for emergency services. Where are those funds to be found? Apparently it is acceptable for the citizens to take pay cuts, or adjust their household budgets, but unheard of for the city to even consider. Our city officials are sadly lacking in courage and leadership, and we all suffer the consequences. Jack L. Cook Bend

The source of the deficit The claim is that Obama inherited a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense. Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that has controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. Democrats controlled the budget process for fiscal year 2008 and fiscal year 2009, as well as fiscal year 2010 and fiscal year 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending. For fiscal year 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the fiscal year 2009 budgets. Obama was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as president to complete fiscal year 2009. If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the fiscal year 2007 deficit,

the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for these budgets., In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is, I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since Jan. 20. Now the president has appointed a commission to pass the blame to someone else. This commission Congress refused to create. Francis Bortner Redmond

Pay more for studded tires You don’t have to go very far out of your driveway to see the damage done by the gazillion ball bearings beating up the pavement every day in Central Oregon from the use of tire studs. With all the problems with the economy and shortfalls in every sector, I don’t see why people using studded tires should not pay for their use. If they feel safer driving with studs why not make them pay a yearly use fee or maybe they can just pony up for the next resurfacing of the parkway? People using studs could buy their yearly fee stickers at Les Schwab just as skiers buy a sno-park passes from vendors. Maybe we need a ballot measure because our legislators seem to be afraid to upset their political contributors. Larry Sharp Bend

Pilgrim non grata in Mecca wanting to learn a bit about Islam

I

was tempted to turn my abaya into a black masquerade cloak and sneak into Mecca, just hop over the Tropic of Cancer to the Red Sea and crash the ultimate heaven’s gate. Sir Richard Burton, the 19th-century British adventurer, translator of “The Arabian Nights” and the “Kama Sutra” and self-described “amateur barbarian,” was an illicit pilgrim to the sacred black granite cube. He wore Arab garb and infiltrated the holiest place in Islam, the Kaaba, the “center of the Earth,” as he called it, in the Saudi city where the Prophet Muhammad was born. But in the end, it seemed disrespectful, not to mention dangerous. So on my odyssey to Saudi Arabia, I tried to learn about the religion that smashed into the American consciousness on 9/11 in a less sneaky way. And that’s when the paradox sunk in: It was nearly impossible for me to experience Islam in the cradle of Islam. You don’t have to be a Catholic to go to the Vatican. You don’t have to be Jewish to go to the Western Wall (although if you’re a woman, you’re squeezed into a

slice of it at the side). You don’t have to be Buddhist to hear the Dalai Lama speak — and have your picture snapped with him afterward. A friend who often travels to Saudi Arabia for business said he thought that Medina, the site of Muhammad’s tomb, was beginning to “loosen up” for nonMuslims. (As the second holiest city in Islam, maybe they needed to try harder.) But the Saudis nixed a trip there. I assumed I at least could go to a mosque at prayer time, as long as I wore an abaya and hijab, took off my shoes, and stayed in the back in a cramped, segregated women’s section. The magnificent Blue Mosque in Istanbul, once the center of one of the greatest Muslim empires, is a huge tourist draw. But at the Jeddah Hilton, I was told that non-Muslims could not visit mosques — not even the one on the hotel grounds. A Saudi woman in Jeddah told me that the best way to absorb Islam was to listen to the call for prayer while standing on the corniche by the Red Sea at sunset. That was indeed moving, but I didn’t feel any better equipped to understand

MAUREEN D O W D the complexities of Islam that even Saudis continually debate — and where radical Islam fits in. Or to get elucidation on how, as Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria put it, “the veil is not the same as the suicide belt.” Couldn’t Mecca, I asked the royals, be opened to non-Muslims during the offseason? But couldn’t they build a center to promote Islamic understanding in Mecca or Medina? Saudis understandably have zero interest in outraging the rest of the Muslim world by letting members of other faiths observe their deeply private rituals and gawk at the parade of religious costumes fashioned from loose white sheets. (Osama bin Laden’s jihad, after all, began with anger about American troops

being deployed to Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War, which he considered a profanity against sacred ground.) Still, I pressed on with Prince Saud alFaisal. With his tinted aviator glasses and sometimes sly demeanor, the Saudi foreign minister has the air of a Hollywood mogul — if moguls wore thobes. I noted that when 15 Saudi hijackers joined four more proponents of radical jihad and flew into the twin towers, Islam had been hijacked as well. He nodded. King Abdullah’s formal title is “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.” And Saudis are very eager to remove the restrictions on visas and enhanced airport security measures slapped in place by America after 9/11. So isn’t there a way for Saudi Arabia to shed light on Islam and reclaim it from the radicals? “Well, at least leave one place closed for the moment,” he said, looking askance at the mere question. “We only have Mecca now and Medina. Everything else is wide open now.” Wide open is not a description that applies to anything in Saudi Arabia. Besides, I said, there were objections when I

tried to go to a mosque. “Well, you know, it depends who you ask,” he said. “Somebody in the hotel who doesn’t want to run into trouble may tell you no. Mecca is a special case. It’s written in the holy book that only Muslims can enter it because of an incident in the past where somebody desecrated the mosque in Mecca. “But for other mosques to be entered, there is absolutely no reason why not. If you go to a mosque and you want to see the mosque and somebody prevents you, you can go to the emir of the region and ask to see the mosque and he will take you there.” Sure. Just call the emir. I bet he’s listed. In the end, I did see the hajj. When I got home, I went to the Imax theater at the Smithsonian and bought a ticket to “Journey to Mecca.” I was surprised when the movie said that the Kaaba was built by “Abraham, the father of the Jews” — a reminder that the faiths have a lot to learn from each other.

O Our reset reset foreign policy A

lmost every element of Barack Obama’s once-heralded new “reset” foreign policy of a year ago has either been reset or likely soon will be. Consider Obama’s approach to the 8-year-old war on terror. Plans made more than a year ago to shut down the detention center at Guantanamo Bay by January 2010 have stalled. Despite loud proclamations about trying Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the architect of 9/11, in a civilian court in New York, such an absurd pledge will probably never be kept. Talk of trying our own former CIA interrogators for being too tough on terrorist suspects has also come to nothing. And why not put an end to the second-guessing of anti-terrorism protocols since the Obama administration, in a single year, has quadrupled the number of assassinations by Predator drones of suspected Taliban and al-Qaida operatives in Pakistan? After all, the targeted killing of hundreds of suspects is far more questionable than waterboarding three confessed killers. The Obama administration seems to have embraced the once widely criticized Bush-Petraeus strategy in Iraq of gradual withdrawal in concert with Iraqi benchmarks. Indeed, Vice President Joe Biden in Orwellian fashion claims that our victory in Iraq may be one of the administration’s “greatest achievements.” Was it not a defeatist Biden who not long ago advocated the trisection of Iraq into separate nations?

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON And after months of waiting, Obama finally sent more troops to Afghanistan, adopting a surge strategy that looks a lot like Bush’s 2007 escalation in Iraq — this after he once assured the country that Bush’s surge, in a tactical sense, “wasn’t working.” Almost all of the once derided Bush anti-terrorism protocols are still in place — wiretaps, intercepts, tribunals, and renditions. And given that there were more foiled radical Islamic terrorist plots in 2009 than in any year since 2001, President Obama will probably stop his outreach speeches to the Islamic world and his serial recitations of American sins. Our efforts to reach out and negotiate directly with Iran failed. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton effectively acknowledged the impasse, citing the unexpected de facto military coup by the Revolutionary Guard. In any case, does anyone believe that more Obama speeches, videos, new diplomacy and imposed deadlines will halt an Iranian nuclear bomb? President Obama was once a fierce critic of the former administration’s Mideast policies. A year ago, he thought new outreach to the Palestinians and rebuke to the Israelis might

lead to a breakthrough. It did not. In a Time magazine interview with Joe Klein, Obama confesses of the 70-year struggle: “I’ll be honest with you. This is just really hard.” Obama assumed we could borrow a trillion dollars from the communist Chinese and then turn around and lecture them on Tibet, human rights, and international trade and currency — sort of like a debtor admonishing his lender about his bank’s shortcomings. Now the Chinese claim that their relations with America are “seriously disrupted,” as they seek to dethrone the dollar as the global currency. I don’t think there will be anymore grand deals with the Russians either, the sort that saw the United States withdraw anti-missile defense accords with Poland and the Czech Republic in hopes of halting the Iranian nuclear program. Instead, Russia and China are blocking American efforts to impose tougher sanctions on Iran. For all the outreach to Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan strongman is still causing trouble in Latin America. So why is the reset foreign policy being reset? First, too often Obama boxed himself into a corner by being against, in knee-jerk fashion, almost anything George Bush was for. Yet most of America’s problems predated George Bush, who, especially in his second term, followed mostly centrist policies. Old enemies were enemies for a reason — and it had nothing to do with Bush. Second, Obama’s utopian rhetoric created impossible expectations of a

new international brotherhood. So the disappointment became greater when nations simply acted like their usual self-interested selves instead of idealistic groupies at an Obama hope and change rally. Third, the constant televised presence of Obama on his 24/7 bully pulpit has surely resulted in Obama fatigue. Most nations don’t seem to fear any of his deadlines or appear mesmerized by his soaring rhetorical flourishes. Fourth, the nearly $2 trillion dollar annual deficit curbs both the moral and material power of the United States, which has gone into hock to unsavory nations. Fortunately, for the country, Obama did not take three years to reverse course, unlike Jimmy Carter whose inaction led to a series of foreign policy catastrophes like the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. By voluntarily backtracking — or being rebuffed — on almost all his initiatives, an idealistic Obama is reminding the world that anti-Americanism abroad is not caused so much by what the United States does, but largely by preconceived hostility to the values of liberty, free markets, and individual rights that the United States represents.

T

his country began with a fierce debate, and it does not appear to be over. The folks rallying to the tea party campaign espouse a program that goes right back to the Articles of Confederation. Whatever we think of it, the movement is as American as apple pie. And its followers think so too, calling themselves “patriots” rather than Republicans or Democrats. Mark Skoda, the president of a Tea Party PAC, recently summed up what he calls their first principles: “less government, fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, states’ rights and national security.” There’s an irony here, though. The tea party-ers lustily cheer at every mention of the U.S. Constitution yet their principles were most fiercely embodied not in our current Constitution, but in the Articles of Confederation. Remember those? The same month that Congress was debating a declaration of independence, a committee was drafting the articles. Its purpose was to form a new government, which it called the United States of America. The states completed ratification of the articles in 1781. Eight years later the Constitution supplanted the articles and brought to an end the political institution that tea party members now seem intent on reviving.

The articles allowed the new central government — solely a legislative body — to make war but not to tax or regulate interstate commerce. States, nervous about losing their independence, had designed a weak government intentionally. That was why it was called a confederacy. (The Southern states, equally determined to protect states rights, created another one 80 years later.) The first confederacy failed. Unable to tax, it struggled to raise money from the states to finance the Continental Army; after the war ended, it could not help states floundering with war debts. By 1786, it was clear to many that the confederation needed to be replaced by something stronger, a federation. The second constitution, the one we live under now, became law in 1788. It gave the central government powers to tax and to regulate interstate commerce and created a national government that for the first time had executive and judicial branches. Many Americans,

known as the Antifederalists, had their doubts about the new constitution. Their spiritual descendants are the tea party-ers. Like the Antifederalists, the tea party folks are fiercely distrustful of the national government, especially its power to tax, even though they completely trust its power to defend the nation. They also dislike the two-party political system created in Washington’s first administration. Sarah Palin recently declared her disapproval of both the Republican and Democratic parties in her speech to the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville and sparked an explosion of approval from her audience. Today’s defenders of the Constitution are the progressives. Led by President Obama, they believe that the national government should not only protect the nation from attack, promote interstate commerce and protect individual rights but also solve national problems through federal legislation — from building infrastructure to promote eco-

DAVID BROOKS health care, finance or energy. Democrats hear them, but those concerns take a back seat to other priorities. Small-business owners have been screaming about the heath care bill that forces them to offer coverage or pay a $2,000-per-employee fine but doesn’t substantially control rising costs. Democrats hear their concerns, but push ahead because getting a heath care bill is more important. Then there is the larger issue of exploding federal deficits. A few Democrats are genuinely passionate about this, President Barack Obama among them. He has fought tenaciously to preserve a commission that might restrain Medicare spending. But 90 percent of the people in Congress have no emotional investment in this issue. They’re going through the motions. They’ve stuffed the legislation with gimmicks and dodges designed to get a good score from the Congressional Budget Office but don’t genuinely control runaway spending. There is the doc fix dodge. The legislation pretends that Congress is about

to cut Medicare reimbursements by 21 percent. Everyone knows that will never happen, so over the next decade actual spending will be $300 billion higher than paper projections. There is the long-term care dodge. The bill creates a $72 billion trust fund to pay for a new long-term care program. The sponsors count that money as cost-saving, even though it will eventually be paid back out when the program comes on line. There is the subsidy dodge. Workers making $60,000 and in the health exchanges would receive $4,500 more in subsidies in 2016 than workers making $60,000 and not in the exchanges. There is no way future Congresses will allow that disparity to persist. Soon, everybody will get the subsidy. There is the excise tax dodge. The primary cost-control mechanism and long-term revenue source for the program is the tax on high-cost plans. But Democrats aren’t willing to levy this tax for eight years. The fiscal sustainability of the whole bill rests on the naïve hope that a future Congress will have the guts to accept a trilliondollar tax when the current Congress wouldn’t accept an increase of a few billion. There is the 10-6 dodge. One of the reasons the bill appears deficit-neutral in the first decade is that it begins collecting revenue right away but doesn’t have to pay for most benefits until 2014.

O

That’s 10 years of revenues to pay for 6 years of benefits, something unlikely to happen again unless the country agrees to go without health care for four years every decade. There is the Social Security dodge. The bill uses $52 billion in higher Social Security taxes to pay for health care expansion. But if Social Security taxes pay for health care, what pays for Social Security? There is the pilot program dodge. Admirably, the bill includes pilot programs designed to help find ways to control costs. But it’s not clear that the bill includes mechanisms to actually implement the results. This is exactly what happened to undermine previous pilot program efforts. The Democrats have not been completely irresponsible. It’s just that as the health fight has gone on, their passion for coverage has swamped their less visceral commitment to reducing debt. The result is a bill that is fundamentally imbalanced. This past year, we’ve seen how hard it is to even pass legislation that expands benefits. To actually reduce benefits and raise taxes, we’re going to need legislators who wake up in the morning passionate about fiscal sanity. The ones we have now are just making things worse.

nomic growth to making the schools better to protecting workers from unjust employment practices. It is not surprising that the tea party-ers hate President Obama. He embodies the Antifederalists’ worst fears. What is perhaps most interesting about the tea partyers is that they have no interest in the socially divisive cultural issues — abortion, gay marriage, euthanasia — that have so dominated our recent national political debate. That is refreshing. Instead, these Americans have returned to the oldest argument arising from this nation’s founding — what should the role of the national government be? Should it help Americans who are struggling or should it not? Should we maintain (and even strengthen, as through health reform) the progressive apparatus of laws and programs that keep the unemployed, the poor and the elderly sick, and even all citizens, from suffering, and increase total federal tax revenues to pay for it, or should we deconstruct that apparatus and reduce those revenues? This is the debate we should be having. May it recommence! Louise W. Knight, who writes for the History News Service, is the author of “Citizen: Jane Addams and the Struggle for Democracy” and “Jane Addams: Spirit in Action.”

The emotion of health care reform e all have our emotional hot and cold spots. If you asked me about the New York Mets, you’d see a glow in my eyes. If you asked me about banking reform, words might come out of my mouth, but you’d notice me nodding off midsentence. For the Democrats, expanding health care coverage is an emotional hot spot. Over the past year, Democrats have fought passionately for universal coverage. They have fought for it even while the country is more concerned about the economy, and in the face of serial political defeats. They have fought for it even though it has crowded out other items on their agenda and may even cost them their majority in the House. And they’ve done it for almost no votes. The 30 million who would be covered under the Democratic proposals are not big voters, while the millions who would pay for the coverage are strikingly unhappy. There is something morally impressive in the Democrats’ passion on this issue. At the same time, it’s interesting to compare it to their behavior on other issues in which they have no emotional investment. For example, Democrats say the right thing when it comes to helping small businesses create jobs, but there’s no passion there. For the past year, small business owners have been screaming that they can’t hire people because they don’t know what the rules will be on

It’s up to Iraqis now; good luck f all the pictures I saw from the recent Iraqi elections, my favorite was on nytimes.com: an Iraqi mother holding up her son to let him stuff her ballot into the box. I loved that picture. Being able to freely cast a ballot for the candidate of your choice is still unusual for Iraqis and for that entire region. That mother seemed to be saying: When I was a child, I never got to vote. I want to live in a world where my child will always be able to. God bless her. This was a very good day for Iraq. To say that mere voting or an election or two makes Iraq a success story would obviously be mistaken. An election does not a democracy make — and Iraq’s politicians still have yet to prove that they are up to governing, nation-building and both establishing and abiding by the rule of law. But this election is a big deal because Iraqis — with the help of the U.N., the U.S. military and the Obama team, particularly Vice President Joe Biden — overcame two huge obstacles. They overcame an array of sectarian disputes that repeatedly threatened to derail this election. And they came out to vote — Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds — despite the bombs set off by al-Qaida and the dead-end Baathists who desperately want to keep the democracy project in Iraq from succeeding. This latter point is particularly crucial. The only way al-Qaida, Baathism and violent Islamism will truly be defeated is when Arabs and Muslims themselves — not us — show they are willing to fight and die for a more democratic, tolerant and progressive future. And how about you, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran? How are you feeling today? Yes, I am sure you have your proxies in Iraq. But I am also sure you know what some of your people are quietly saying: “How come we Iranian-Persian-Shiites — who always viewed ourselves as superior to Iraqi-Arab-Shiites — can only vote for a handful of pre-chewed, pre-digested, ‘approved’ candidates from the supreme leader, while those lowly Iraqi Shiites, who have been hanging around with America for seven years, get to vote for whomever they want?” Unlike in Tehran, Iraqis actually count the votes. This will subtly fuel the discontent in Iran. Yes, the U.S.’s toppling of Saddam Hussein helped Iran expand its influence into the Arab world. Saddam’s Iraq was a temporary iron-fisted bulwark against Iranian expansion. But if Iraq has any sort of decent outcome — and becomes a real Shiite-majority, multiethnic democracy right next door to the phony Iranian version — it will be a source of permanent pressure on the Iranian regime. Former President George W. Bush’s gut instinct that this region craved and needed democracy was always right. It should have and could have been pursued with much better planning and execution. This war has been extraordinarily painful and costly. Some argue that nothing that happens in Iraq will ever justify the costs. Historians will sort that out. Personally, at this stage, I only care about one thing: that the outcome in Iraq be positive enough and forward-looking enough that those who have actually paid the price — in lost loved ones or injured bodies, in broken homes or broken lives, be they Iraqis or Americans or Brits — see Iraq evolve into something that will enable them to say that whatever the cost, it has given freedom and decent government to people who had none. That, though, will depend on Iraqis and their leaders. It was hopeful to see the strong voter turnout — 62 percent — and the fact that some of the largest percentage of voting occurred in regions, like Kirkuk and Nineveh provinces, that are hotly disputed. It means people are ready to use politics to resolve disputes, not just arms. We can only hope so. President Barack Obama has handled his Iraq inheritance deftly, but he is committed to the withdrawal timetable. As such, our influence there will be less decisive every day. Iraq will be said to have a decent outcome not just if that young boy whose mother let him cast her ballot gets to vote one day himself. It will be a decent outcome only if his life chances improve . I wish I could say that that was inevitable. It is not. But it is no longer unattainable, and I for one will keep rooting for it to happen.

“You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes, and Their Impact on a Generation” by Susannah Gora (Crown, 367 pgs., $26)

By Rafer Guzman Newsday

Anyone who has read even a little about John Hughes, the writer-director who portrayed teenagers with rare sensitivity and respect in 1980s films like “The Breakfast Club” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” probably knows he did not grow up an alienated, overly sensitive outsider. By all accounts, he was a normal, fairly popular Midwestern kid untroubled by the sneering socialites, out-of-reach girls and vengeful teachers who populated his movies. How, then, did he create such wonderfully true characters as Molly Ringwald’s sulky Samantha Baker in “Sixteen Candles,” Judd Nelson’s swaggering John Bender in “The Breakfast Club” and Jon Cryer’s selfless Duckie Dale in “Pretty in Pink”? In other words, why did Hughes become the most resonant and enduring voice of adolescent experience since J.D. Salinger? Susannah Gora’s affectionate, featherweight book “You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried” (Hughes fans will recognize the title’s origin) gives us the Hows and Whens but never the big Why behind Hughes’ films. That’s not entirely Gora’s John Hughes fault: Her primary source, the filmmaker himself, long ago stopped granting interviews (like Salinger). Hence Gora’s broader, catchall subtitle, “The Brat Pack, John Hughes and Their Impact on a Generation.” Chatty, upbeat and rarely critical, Gora invites us to pop in our favorite DVDs, break out the junk food and listen to her stories. She’s short on insight but long on minutiae: casting choices, on-set smooches, soundtracks that could have been, scripts that never were. It’s fluffy stuff, but Gora’s solid research — she interviews most of the principal players — produces some fun facts. Maybe you already knew that Hughes’ go-to geek, Anthony Michael Hall, began dating Ringwald on the set of “The Breakfast Club,” despite his braces (which he no longer needed but kept for the character). But did you know that Duckie would have ended up with Ringwald’s Andie in “Pretty in Pink” had a teenage test audience not booed them down? And that it was Rob Lowe’s idea to use a Bic lighter and an aerosol can to visually illustrate the theme of 1985’s “St. Elmo’s Fire?” Wait — what does that execrable yuppie film have to do with John Hughes? Nothing, but remember: This is a Brat Pack book. Actually, it’s a Gora’s-favorite-movies book: She devotes a whole chapter to Cameron Crowe’s non-Brat movie “Say Anything” (1989), mostly because she loves it.

Actor Matthew Broderick starred in the 1986 film “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” The film was directed by John Hughes, who also wrote and directed “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and “Weird Science.” Gora’s journalism skills kick in when she explores the ramifications of the media-created term “Brat Pack.” In 1985, New York magazine sent writer David Blum to profile Emilio Estevez, who showed up at the Beverly Center Hard Rock Cafe with Lowe, Nelson and other friends in tow. After a high-spirited night with these good-looking, high-living Hollywood youngsters, Blum came up with a snappy name for them — and boy, did it stick. The June 10, 1985, cover story made instant celebrities of Estevez and Nelson; it also tried to rope in Nicolas Cage and Matthew Modine. As for Ringwald, Hall and Ally Sheedy, they became Brats by association. Whether Blum’s story made or destroyed careers is debatable, but it clearly split up the Pack. Gora talks to actor after actor whose freewheeling evenings came to a sudden halt when everyone began avoiding each other to shake the dreaded Packer label. “We were friends,” Sheedy says. “I had felt truly a part of something, and that guy blew it to pieces.” And what of Hughes? After 1987’s “Some Kind of Wonderful,” he was done with teen movies: “I had shot enough high school hallways,” he said in a 1988 Newsday interview. He discarded his young muses, Ringwald and Hall — Hughes was known for ending long friendships brusquely — and began making broad, high-grossing comedy fare like “Home Alone.” The hits dried up in the late ’90s, but by then he was independently wealthy and had moved his family from Los Angeles back to Illinois, the place he always called home. Hughes stayed out of the public eye but, again like Salinger, kept writing. At least one person in Gora’s book is convinced he was sitting on a treasure trove

of scripts. There’s another Salinger similarity: Hughes’ death by heart attack last year means we can stop knocking at his door, hoping to discover the big Why behind his particular genius. His works simply stand, and we’ll have to let them.

If Alfred Hitchcock were alive and kicking, he’d have done well to acquire the rights to William Boyd’s latest, “Ordinary Thunderstorms.” A wrong-man setup in the vein of “The Thirty Nine Steps” (and, of course, “The Wrong Man” and “North By Northwest”) — a likable guy is mistakenly tagged as a murderer, a baddie — Boyd’s 10th novel is set in modern-day London. Here, on the first page, an American climatologist, Adam Kindred, stands looking down over the balustrade of the Chelsea Bridge into the Thames, and looking at his bright future. He’s just had a job interview, and he’s feeling good, envisioning his life as an ex-pat, with a messy relationship left behind in Arizona. But as Boyd moves his protagonist (tall, in his early 30s) away from the bridge and toward a chance meal in an Italian eatery, well, Kindred “crosses the road, having no idea how his life is about to change in the next few hours — massively, irrevocably — no idea at all.” In the restaurant, he meets Philip Wang, an immunologist with a drug company. The two men chat. Wang leaves. And leaves behind a file. Kindred decides to return it to Wang. He calls the number on Wang’s card, and Kindred takes the file to Wang’s apartment, where he finds the doctor on his bed, a knife plunged into his chest. Wang urges Kindred to pull the knife out, which Kindred does, getting his fingerprints on the knife and Wang’s blood on his clothes. Then Wang dies, and Kindred hears a noise — the killer? — out on the bal-

cony. Kindred flees. And flees, and flees, because, well, the hit man who murdered Wang discovers where Kindred is staying. Then the police are onto him. And the pharmaceutical giant where Wang was working, developing a new asthma medicine, has offered a substantial reward for Kindred’s capture. And so, in the thick of London, in the thick of this nightmare, Kindred goes off the radar — finding a secluded patch of turf beneath the Chelsea Bridge to sleep, to hide. He grows a beard. He becomes one of the city’s thousands of homeless, scrounging for change, for food — and he has to figure out how to clear his name and find the killer, and find the reason Wang was wanted dead. Boyd, whose most recent novel, “Restless,” was a deft generational espionager, has hopped genres and styles over the years, but his books — from his first, “A Good Man in Africa,” to “An Ice Cream War” to “Stars and Bars” (another stranger-in-astrange-land scenario) — have all been marked by a dark wit and a keen sense of the absurd. And so Kindred meets a streetwalker and her doped-up baby boy. He encounters an offduty female police officer, newly attached to the Thames marine unit, and newly unattached from her philandering beau. There are a millionaire drug tycoon and his foolish playboy brother; Jonjo Case, the hired assassin; the denizens of a soup kitchen housed in a peculiar fundamentalist church. “Ordinary Thundersorms” is a snappy pageturner, a true thriller, but also a morally tricky piece of work. But it’s that kind of ethical complexity that makes “Ordinary Thunderstorms” anything but ordinary, indeed.

Author’s heroine is a plain Jane “Becoming Jane Eyre” by Sheila Kohler (Penguin, 234 pgs., $15)

By Tom Beer Newsday

Jeff Roberson / The Associated Press

President Barack Obama speaks about health care reform at St. Charles High School in St. Charles, Mo. Experts say Obama’s health care plan, which Congress is now formulating into a bill, is flawed in some areas, but on the whole it is a great step forward.

Before Jane Austen seized control of the popular imagination, zombies and sea monsters trailing behind, the Bronte sisters were the reigning queens of English literature. As Lucasta Miller observed in her 2004 study, “The Bronte Myth,” these Yorkshire spinsters were as celebrated for their romanticized life stories as for their classic novels, “Jane Eyre” and “Wuthering Heights.” The Bronte narrative — three wildly imaginative women, scribbling away on the bleak moors, with a tragic drunken brother and stern parson father, one by one succumbing

to consumption — has inspired countless films and novels. The Bronte cottage industry shows no signs of slowdown. Last year we saw novels by Denise Giardina (“Emily’s Ghost”) and Syrie James (“The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte”), and this month brings “Becoming Jane Eyre,” by Sheila Kohler, author of “Cracks” and “The Perfect Place.” Kohler opens the story in Manchester in 1846, where Charlotte sits by her father’s bedside, with pencil and pad, as he recovers from an operation to restore his eyesight. She already is depressed by a publisher’s rejection of her first novel, “The Professor.” “What is she to write about now, in the silence of this darkened room?” Why, the tale of Jane Eyre, of course: an orphan girl turned

governess, who finds a soul mate in her employer, Mr. Rochester, despite the complications of age, class, temperament and that crazy first wife in the attic. Kohler chronicles the unfolding of this literary creation, as Charlotte works bits and pieces of her own experience — especially her tenure as a schoolteacher in Brussels and a passionate crush on the headmaster. Along the way, we encounter Charlotte’s sisters and their selfdestructive brother, Branwell, as well as publisher George Smith, whose championing of “Jane Eyre” will transform “this small, frail person, hardly five feet tall, with these dainty hands and feet” into an unlikely London celebrity. The point-of-view shifts among these and other peripheral characters, including the

Rev. Bronte’s nurse and Smith’s mother. It’s all recounted in accomplished literary prose, but the problems are twofold: One, the story is familiar to Bronte enthusiasts; and two, it’s difficult to fashion much drama out of the writing and publication of a novel. In other words, “Becoming Jane Eyre” is, well, a bit dull. Perhaps most lacking is the vitality that courses through “Jane Eyre” and “Wuthering Heights.” Completists may feel obliged to check “Becoming Jane Eyre” off the long list of Bronte-inspired fiction, but the rest of us would no doubt find more pleasure in re-reading the sisters themselves; they novelized their own lives and concerns better than anyone.

Tech space for working, and networking New social setting downtown geared toward telecommuters By Andrew Moore

B U S I N E SS IN BRIEF

The Bulletin

Lawsuits could cost Toyota $3 billion-plus Toyota owners claiming that massive safety recalls are causing the value of their vehicles to plummet have filed close to 100 class-action lawsuits that could cost the Japanese auto giant $3 billion or more, according to an Associated Press review of cases, legal precedent and interviews with experts. Those estimates do not include potential payouts for wrongful death and injury lawsuits, which could reach in the tens of millions each. Still, the sheer volume of cases involving American Toyota owners claiming lost value — 6 million or more — could prove far more costly. Such lawsuits “are more scary for Toyota than the cases where people actually got injured,� said Tom Baker, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. “A super-big injury case would be $20 million. But you could have millions of individual car owners who could (each) be owed $1,000.� A key decision could come at a March 25 hearing in San Diego, where federal judges will consider whether to consolidate the mushrooming cases into a single jurisdiction. Lawsuits started appearing on state and federal dockets last fall, when Toyota began recalling some 8 million vehicles worldwide because of persistent complaints about sudden unintended acceleration.

Freelance computer programmers, telecommuters and remote workers tired of using the kitchen table for desk space have a new resource when it comes to meeting deadlines. Central Oregon’s Tech Alliance, in

partnership with other groups, has launched a new office space in downtown Bend geared toward untethered technology workers, with the hope they socialize and spawn new business ventures. The Old Cigar Building, at 916 N.W. Harriman St., is being rebranded

ukulele unit Project marks the next big thing for evolving Bend guitar maker

T

he sweet, clear melodies of Hawaii are soon coming to Central Oregon — in the form of the ukulele. Breedlove Guitar Co., which has been manufacturing guitars and mandolins since the late 1980s, is beginning to expand production in its Bend facility to build the Hawaiian-style instrument. President Peter Newport said the ukulele production — a pet project of vice president, master luthier and artist Kim Breedlove — will get into full swing in the coming months. “This project is dear to his heart,� Newport said of Breedlove, whose family the company is named after. “It’s one of our favorite parts of the acoustic world that we had not addressed.� Initially, the company will produce one main design, a tenor ukulele, out of the 20 or so different shapes, sizes and models of ukuleles developed by Breedlove while at his Hawaii home. The tenor is the second largest of the four traditional styles of the instrument. Breedlove, 60, lives part time in Bend and part time in Hawaii. “Anything with strings on it, I’ve always had an interest in,� Breedlove said about why he added ukuleles to the mix.

The average interest rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage dropped for a second straight week, to 4.95 percent last week from 4.97 percent the week before, Freddie Mac reported Thursday. However, mortgage rates are widely seen to be on an upward trend this year as the Federal Reserve’s asset purchase programs end. Rising rates do not bode well for the housing market, which remains vulnerable to setbacks and reliant on government intervention.

30-year rates drop

Gasoline prices almost always rise in the spring, and this year won’t be an exception. Government forecasters see the national average price per gallon rising from $2.76 now to $3 a gallon by the start of the summer driving season. But that’s a very modest increase compared with the past few years when oil prices rose and fell sharply. Now, crude oil demand — and prices — are rising slowly as the global economy improves. That slow, steady increase should make it easier for consumers to adjust their budgets to cope with spending more for gas. — From wire reports

CHICAGO — Ethanol, the commodity that cost Bill Gates more than $44 million the last time prices collapsed, is poised to rally as much as 20 percent as the fastest drop since 2008 spurs demand. Falling corn prices and record ethanol supplies have driven the price down 17 percent in three months to $1.634 a gallon, its worst run since 2008’s fourth quarter. It will average $1.96 a gallon at the peak of the U.S. summer driving season as refiners from Valero Energy to Sunoco mix more into gasoline made from increasingly pricey oil. Four years after George W. Bush made ethanol a centerpiece of his presidency’s push to cut dependence on foreign oil, three of the biggest producers have sought bankruptcy protection, and prices have fallen 61 percent from their mid2006 record. Now demand is rebounding because ethanol is almost 66 cents cheaper than gasoline, the biggest discount in 14 months. See Ethanol / G3

Wanna be the first with a 3-D TV? It’ll cost you about $3,000 By Peter Svensson The Associated Press

The most-hyped home electronics product in years, 3-D TV, has arrived. Samsung and Panasonic have begun selling 3-D TVs in U.S. stores, inaugurating what manufacturers hope is the era of 3-D viewing in the living room. But because the sets require bulky glasses, and there is for now little to watch in the enhanced format, it will take at least a few years for the technology to become

mainstream, if that happens at all. Although it’s clear that 3-D sets will appeal to technology and home-theater enthusiasts, it remains to be seen whether others will be enticed to spend at least $500 above the price of a comparably sized standard TV and Blu-ray player. TV makers hope so, because sets with the last big technological improvement — high definition — have come way down in price, below $500. See 3-D / G5

Moving on after layoffs

O

ne person started a clock-repair business. Another plans to become a truck driver. Two others are attending Central Oregon Community College, one to become a nurse, the other a marketing or management professional. While their pursuits are different, they all share something in common: They’re former Cessna employees who lost their jobs last year when the company trimmed its work force and later shut the doors of its airplane manufacturing plant in Bend, idling several hundred people. The four are moving on, not bitter, but wiser — realizing they need to adapt, learn new skills or tap old ones to lay the foundation for stability. They liked their jobs, but realize they need something more secure than a manufacturing job susceptible to downsizing. “Some people can be bitter about it, just losing their job, ‘Now what do I do?’ Or accept reality and make yourself better from what happened,� said Jon Howard, 25, who’s doing the latter while attending COCC with an eye on a future in marketing or management. Howard worked as an assembly and composite technician for four years at the plant that Cessna took over in late 2007. Because of circumstances surrounding Cessna’s layoffs, his tuition and books are paid for through a federal program administered by the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council, and he can earn unemployment while in school. He hopes to find work after he gets his associate degree and eventually earn a bachelor’s. His friend, A.J. Reel, 26, is on the same program, pursuing a general sciences degree and laying the groundwork for what he hopes is entrance into COCC’s nursing program. Reel had been a production controller at the airplane plant for five years and been through layoffs before. “It wasn’t easy on my home life,� said Reel, who has two children. “It was really stressful to not know if you’re going to have a job in a week or month.� When he saw his job was going to be eliminated, he took a voluntary leave to enter college last March. “I knew that it was time to start aggressively getting retrained if I wanted to be marketable.� Reel and Howard are among many former Cessna employees and others who have lost jobs or are underemployed who are swamping COCC and straining the school’s ability to serve everyone. They demonstrate the necessity of the school’s planned expansion. Geniene May, 53, a friend of Reel’s and former team leader in Cessna’s composite shop, had been making airplanes since 2001. She was let go last October after spending the final weeks helping train workers at a plant in Mexico how to do work she did here. She weathered a sixmonth layoff earlier in the decade, but liked her job. She thought workers had it good and her job would always be there. But she learned manufacturing jobs can come and go with the economy. A mother and wife, she’s anticipating funding from the federal Trade Act program this spring will pay for her to attend the International Institute of Transportation Resources Inc. truck-driving school in Redmond. She wants to get a commercial driver’s license and hopes her husband, who repairs roofs, can eventually get a commercial license and that they can drive as a team. “It’s a job I know that’s going to be there,� May said. Howard’s father, Lance Howard, 63, worked at Cessna about two years when he got cut in January 2009. After about nine months on unemployment, he decided to tap skills he used in a business he ran in Portland for 28 years, so he opened a tiny clock-repair shop, Central Oregon Clock, next to H&R Block on Third Street. From desk clocks to grandfather clocks — the latter of which he’ll make house calls to service — he’s putting his former clock-repair tools and skills to work. He bought a work bench at a garage sale and a spice rack at Goodwill that’s perfect for holding small parts and tools. The many clocks in his shop awaiting service or already repaired seem to indicate Howard has latched onto something promising. He’s relied on word of mouth and a small sandwich board sign to advertise his business on Third Street. “You have to kind of create what you can do for yourself,� he said, which is basically what his son, Reel and May also are doing. All four lost their airplane jobs, but each sees their future just taking off. That kind of spirit is uplifting in what remains a very difficult time.

Tony Gebely pours an oolong tea during a party in his Chicago apartment. Gebely has just launched an online tea business in Chicago, but he is finding it hard to direct Web traffic to his site because search engines have become so cluttered with sites about the tea party political movement.

‘Tea party’: a term steeped in confusion Political movement complicates online marketing of the actual beverage By Rex W. Huppke Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — On a trip to China in 2006, Tony Gebely fell in love with tea, both the drink and the ceremony of enjoying a calm cup. Embracing his passion, the Chicagoan has launched an online tea business but has already run into unexpected problems making sure his chicagoteagarden.com site gets noticed on the Web. “When I look at search engine results for ‘Chicago tea,’ I find a whole bunch of Chicago tea party movement sites,” Gebely said. “There are a few tea places and then all this political stuff. It’s pretty annoying.” Purveyors of fine tea and tea enthusiasts in general find themselves steeped in a linguistic shift, their beloved beverage now associated with a conservative political movement routinely praised or pilloried on talk radio and cable news shows. The tea party movement’s name, a reference to the tax protests that led to the Revolutionary War, has nothing, really, to do with tea. But that doesn’t seem to matter. “I certainly ... have seen some confusion with regard to the name they’ve chosen for their movement,” said Dan Robertson, owner of The Tea House in Naperville, Ill., a major tea distributor. “When I first heard about it, I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I can sell them some tea.’ Then I realized that probably wasn’t going to happen.” He said he recently sent tea samples to a prospective client in Memphis, who is starting a business called The Memphis Tea Party. He searched that on Google and came up with nothing but news of political rallies and links to the actual Memphis tea party organization. “Clearly,” Robertson said, “that name is going to

cause some confusion.” Steve Stevlic, coordinator of Tea Party Patriots Chicago, sees confusion over “tea party,” the event, and “tea party,” the movement, as evidence of a successful message. “I think what we’re doing is resonating,” Stevlic said. “I think it also signifies that it is, in fact, a movement.” So fast, in fact, that in its early stages it managed to catch at least one longtime tea connoisseur off guard. Pearl Dexter, editor of Tea: A Magazine, was invited to a tea party meeting last year in Connecticut, where her magazine is based. She showed up with several copies of the magazine, including one that had an image of newly inaugurated President Barack Obama on the cover. “When I started to read the information they had there, I thought, ‘Well, this is not going to be for me,’” Dexter said. Of course, not all tea partiers would clash with the tea party. Don Shapiro has gone to afternoon teas in Chicago for about 25 years, savoring the serenity and civility of the tradition. “I am a tea enthusiast, and I have been for years. Lately I’ve been embracing some of the ideas behind the tea party movement,” said Shapiro, who can be found almost weekly sipping a vanilla black tea at the Four Seasons. Shapiro and many others in tea circles admit that the juxtaposition between the often rowdy media images of political tea partiers and the serene images of whole-leaf-organic-tea tea partiers reveals an unmistakable dissonance. Sipping a cup of king-grade Tie Guan Yin tea in his Naperville shop, Robertson, the tea importer, took a politically neutral stance on the movement. He did, however, wonder whether tea party members might be “calmer” if they drank something better than tea made with the cheap tea bags they hoist at protests and mail off to politicians. “I worry that they’re drinking bad tea. They don’t know how to relax. If you just sit back and have a good cup of tea and talk, things tend to work out.”

Questions of risk in Fannie, Freddie investments By Zachary A. Goldfarb The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — An influential voice on Capitol Hill has unexpectedly called into question the safety of investing in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, raising the specter that investors who have lent money to the two firms or bought their mortgage-backed securities could one day suffer losses. The comments by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, come despite the assumption of many investors that investments in the two mortgage finance giants are risk-free. Until now, federal officials — who took over Fannie and Freddie two years ago to save them from collapse — have signaled to the market that lending the companies money is just about as safe as lending to the U.S. government itself. “People who own Fannie and Freddie debt are not in the same

Ethanol Continued from G1 The potential gains prompted Valero and Sunoco to buy failed distilleries. “Margins today are better than a year ago, absolutely,” said Todd Becker, the chief executive officer of Green Plains Renewable Energy Inc., the fourth-biggest producer. “The industry is on pretty good footing for 2010.” The Omaha, Neb., company reported a record fourth-quarter profit of $23.1 million last month, up from a $1.85 million loss a year ago. Green Plains sold new shares in March, the first producer to do so in almost two years.

Fuel demand Producing gasoline became less lucrative as the worst recession since World War II cut fuel demand. After selling for a record $37.48 a barrel more than crude oil in May 2007, gasoline now goes for $14.276 more. The 62 percent decline in that so-called crack spread is being exacerbated by rising oil prices, which have almost tripled since February 2009’s low of $33.98 a barrel. Using more ethanol can improve profits for refiners who get a 45-cent tax credit for each gallon they blend. The incentive has effectively been more than doubled by falling corn prices, which account for 70 percent of the alternative’s cost. Corn has plummeted to $3.75 a bushel from a record $7.9925 in June 2008. Corn has fallen 17 percent from its 2009 high in June as oil rose 19 percent. Ethanol has been depressed further by increased production, which averaged an unprecedented 788,000 barrels a day in December, 20 percent higher than a year ago. Stockpiles that month totaled a record 16.7 million barrels, Energy Department data show. The result: a 65.5-cent difference between gasoline and ethanol that producers can combine with the tax credit, for a total discount of $1.11. Production of conventional gasoline mixed with ethanol ballooned 22 percent to a record 4.4 million barrels the week ended Feb. 19. “Considering what we see in gasoline, there will be a formidable amount of resiliency for ethanol,” said John Kilduff, a partner

Frank’s comments come after some on Capitol Hill have called for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s books to be incorporated onto the federal budget. The companies have more than $5 trillion in outstanding liabilities, not much less than the U.S. government. But the White House, and Frank, have rejected incorporating that debt into the federal books. Doubts about the safety of Fannie and Freddie led to a steep selloff of the firms’ stock in summer 2008, eventually leading to their seizure. The Treasury Department, which is largely responsible for ensuring that Fannie and Freddie can meet their financial obligations, released a statement Friday repeating a vow late last year to back the companies.

— Todd Becker, CEO of Green Plains Renewable Energy Inc., one of the biggest producers of ethanol at Round Earth Capital, a hedge fund in New York that focuses on food and energy commodities.

U.S. energy staple Ethanol is made by fermenting starches from corn to create an alcohol that’s indistinguishable from moonshine. The fuel has been a staple of U.S. energy policy since Jimmy Carter’s administration in the late 1970s. The state of Oregon requires that gasoline contain 10 percent ethanol. Gates, Microsoft’s founder, completed his bet on ethanol four months after Bush declared the U.S. “addicted to oil” and vowed to increase use of the alternative in his Jan. 31, 2006, State of the Union address. The billionaire’s Cascade Investment purchased an $84 million stake in Sacramento, Calif.-based Pacific Ethanol for the equivalent of $8 a common share. Gates originally bought preferred shares that were later converted to common. About eight weeks later, ethanol started an unprecedented threemonth, 60 percent slide as supply outpaced demand. Production soared 27 percent that year. By the time Cascade signaled intent to sell its stake on Nov. 16, 2007, ethanol had fallen 56 percent. It unloaded shares in a series of transactions the next year as ethanol fell 32 percent, Securities and Exchange Commission filings show. Three publicly traded producers who provided 11 percent of 2008 U.S. supply have sought bankruptcy court protection. VeraSun Energy Corp., once the largest American distiller, went first, in October 2008, followed five months later by Aventine Renewable Energy Holdings Inc. as wrong way bets on corn led to a shakeout. Pacific Ethanol’s refining units succumbed in May 2009 as a rebound in prices the previous year gave way to a 50 percent rout. Higher corn prices would squeeze refiners’ profits. Corn prices are forecast to jump 20 percent to $4.64 a bushel by Dec. 31,

according to the median of eight forecasts. A loss of political support also would undercut ethanol. The 45-cent tax credit and a 54-cent tariff on imports from Brazil, the biggest exporter, will expire at the end of this year if they’re not extended. Production of biodiesel, a diesel additive, has ground to a near halt since its $1-a-gallon tax credit ended on Dec. 31, said the National Biodiesel Board, a trade group in Jefferson City, Mo.

Ethanol and the environment Ethanol got a boost from President Barack Obama’s administration when the Environmental Protection Agency concluded last month that it produces 20 percent less greenhouse gases than gasoline, clearing the way for more use. Under a 2007 law, gasoline refiners must use 12 billion gallons of ethanol this year, up from 10.5 billion gallons last year. The EPA plans to determine by midyear if it will raise the 10 percent blend limit for cars made after 2001. The industry is lobbying for 15 percent. The U.S. requires refiners to have at least 8.3 percent of renewable fuels in their gasoline. Kevin Book, an ethanol analyst and managing director of Clearview Energy Partners in Washington, said the administration is likely to approve higher blends as it pushes to create more “greencollar” jobs. American distillers also are benefiting from the highest sugar prices in almost three decades, which are driving up costs for Brazilian competitors that make ethanol from sugarcane. The country reduced domestic blending requirements to 20 percent from 25 percent because of shortages. “I’m not sure there’s a lot of extra capacity or extra ethanol in Brazil really coming into the U.S. anyway,” said Green Plains CEO Becker. “It is an underlying factor that is favorable to the industry overall.”

up working out of their homes,” said Ruth Lindley, the marketing manager for EDCO and a member of the Tech Alliance. “We’re trying to strengthen the tech community here, so we think this building will provide a nice place for people to get some work done and have some causal conversation,” Lindley said. The Tech Alliance and other tech leaders in the community had been in discussions with NedSpace, a Portland group that manages similar office spaces in two locations in that city, to open a space in Bend. However, Howell said he and Kieffer decided to go ahead on their own after meeting the Old Cigar Building’s owner, Dan Hobin, who was supportive of the idea. Hobin, the CEO of G5 Search Marketing Inc., owns the building along with business partner Greg Meier, who co-founded G5 with Hobin. G5 formerly used the building as its office before relocating several months ago to the Franklin Cross-

ing building in downtown Bend. Hobin, who also helped cofound the Bend Venture Conference, originally intended for the building to be a collaborative office space for tech workers after purchasing and renovating it in 2004. The growth of G5 ended that vision. “For some time, there’s been a need for communal tech space that’s affordable,” Hobin said in a statement announcing the site. “There’s enormous value in having a nexus — and activity hub — that draws the tech community together for ad hoc collaboration.” Mark Grimes, a partner with NedSpace, wishes TechSpaceBend well, adding that NedSpace will likely look elsewhere to open a new office but doesn’t have any hard feelings. “We wish them the best of luck and know they will do great,” Grimes said.

“We want to become the No. 1 acoustic builder in the world. We’re really on nonstop continuous improvement.�

Breedlove Continued from G1 The new line of instrument, which will start at about $1,000 and get pricier based on additional features and specifications, is only a part of the undercurrent of change swelling within Breedlove Guitar Co. during the past two years. Along with moving from Tumalo to a more spacious building off Lolo Drive in NorthWest Crossing in mid-2008, Breedlove Guitar has replaced two of its lower-priced series of guitars — which were partially manufactured in South Korea — with a U.S.-made series. The new guitars are aptly named the American Series, and having them built in the U.S. helped Breedlove bring 14 new jobs to its Bend manufacturing plant this year, Newport said. The company also has altered some of its manufacturing procedures, limiting the variety of work some employees do, thus making them more specialized in one or two aspects of Breedlove’s instrument production, Newport said. That specialization has been happening since Newport came to Breedlove Guitar in 1999, partially because of the growth the company has experienced. Only five employees worked at Breedlove in 1999, while 49 are employed by the company today. The company could add 10 additional jobs if sales continue to outpace production, Newport said. Newport is optimistic about sales, projecting 15,000 to 20,000 guitars will be produced in 2010, compared with about 13,000 in 2009. He hopes to sell between 400 and 500 ukuleles this year. “We want to become the No. 1 acoustic builder in the world,� said Newport, who added that Breedlove stopped manufacturing its line of electric guitars, though the company will still

build them on special request. “We’re really on nonstop continuous improvement.� Not everything has gone perfectly for Breedlove Guitar in its recent history. Four experienced craftsmen were let go last month, mostly because of conflicts over some of the changes to the business, such as the manufacturing procedures, Newport said. “If we were to use technology we used 20 to 30 years ago, we would have the same problems

we had 20 to 30 years ago,� he said, explaining why he believes changes to the business were, and continue to be, necessary. Additionally, during 2009, business was 10 percent below 2008 and Breedlove was forced to reduce its work force to about 35 employees, Newport said. Even so, the two new instrument lines, the 14 new employees added so far this year and a successful marketing tour seem to back up what Newport contends:

Continued from G1 Samsung Electronics Co. announced it is selling two 3-D sets. For $3,000, buyers get a 46-inch set, two pairs of glasses and a 3D Blu-ray player. Last week’s sales debut comes as moviegoers have shown considerable enthusiasm for the latest wave of 3-D titles in the theater. Last weekend, “Alice in Wonderland� grossed an estimated $116.2 million at the box office, beating the first-weekend receipts of “Avatar,� the winter’s 3-D blockbuster. One challenge will be that the 3-D effect requires viewers to wear relatively bulky batteryoperated glasses that need to be recharged. They are not like the cheap throwaways that have been used in theaters since the 1950s. When you’re wearing these 3-D TV glasses, room lights and computer screens may look like they’re flickering, making it difficult to combine 3-D viewing with other household activities. Anyone who’s not wearing the glasses when the set is in 3-D mode will see a blurry screen. (The sets can be used in 2-D mode as well, with no glasses required.) To give buyers something to watch, Samsung is including with its packages a 3-D copy of “Monsters vs. Aliens� on Blu-ray, in a deal with the studio, DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. Its CEO, Jeffrey Katzenberg, said it will convert its “Shrek� movies to 3-D for Samsung TV buyers later this year. “We continue to see this amazing level of enthusiasm and excitement for 3-D. The rate of adoption for this into the cinema

has been a rocket ship these last couple of months,� Katzenberg said.

What to watch? Sets with 3-D capability have been available for a few years from Mitsubishi Corp. But 3-D for the home is now coming together as a complete package with the arrival of more 3-D television models, as well as 3-D video players and 3-D movies. But there’s still a notable lack of 3-D material to watch. Eventually, sports and other programming that will benefit from a more immersive experience should be offered in 3-D. ESPN has said it will start a channel that will broadcast live events using the technology, starting with FIFA World Cup soccer in June. The sets could also be used for 3-D video games, when game consoles catch up to the new technology. Samsung, the world’s largest maker of TVs, has high hopes for

3-D. Tim Baxter, head of the company’s U.S. electronics division, said he expects 3-D systems to be in 3 million to 4 million of the 35 million TV sets sold in the U.S. this year by all manufacturers. Research firm iSuppli Corp. puts the figure at 4.2 million units globally this year. It expects the numbers to ramp quickly, to 12.9 million next year and 27 million in 2012. For comparison, there were more than 210 million TVs sold worldwide year.

Cost estimates Sony Corp. said Tuesday it will start selling 3-D televisions in June. U.S. prices were not revealed, but the sets will cost $3,200 and up in Japan. The company hopes that 10 percent of the TVs it sells in the next fiscal year will be 3-D units. Sony also plans to issue software upgrades for its PlayStation 3 game consoles and some of its Blu-ray players so they will be able to play 3-D discs.

Things are looking up. The marketing tour, which is still going on, has consisted of a group of Breedlove employees who know how to sell, repair and play guitars, driving crosscountry for more than a year in a Breedlove-customized RV to each dealer that sells Breedlove Guitars, as well as those that don’t. The group shows off a line of the company’s current and new products. Through that tour, Breedlove has landed its guitars with about 150 additional guitar dealers, putting Breedlove with about 550 total dealers nationally, Newport said. “It’s really hard to tell people about guitars over the phone or the Internet,� he said. “We thought it would be better if we left here with 100 guitars and a beautiful RV.�

Panasonic has not revealed what its sets will cost. It’s taking a slightly different tack than Samsung, by introducing 3-D only on plasma screens, for maximum image quality. And rather than selling 3-D sets broadly, it’s going only through Best Buy Inc.’s Magnolia Home Theater stores. Samsung’s two new sets will be followed by another 13 3-Dcapable models in the next two months. Soon, 3-D packages with plasma sets will be available for about $2,000, Baxter said. ISuppli analyst Randy Lawson said it’s a fairly simple, inexpensive move for manufacturers to modify their high-end sets to be 3-D capable. That’s part of the reason iSuppli expects a quick increase in sales of such 3-D TVs. Whether people will use the feature is another matter, he said. A report released last month by the analyst firm NPD Group on consumer attitudes toward 3-D TV found that about a third of consumers were somewhat interested in 3-D TV, but the cost of a set and glasses was a concern for more than 60 percent of people surveyed. The inconvenience of wearing 3-D glasses was cited as a downside by 53 percent of those polled. Consumers should be more interested in the ability to connect the TV to the Internet, Lawson said. That feature, which started showing up last year, is more immediately useful, because it gives access to a vast array of online movies and TV shows. “I don’t believe that everyone will be watching 3-D all the time in two to three years,� he said. “I don’t think it will be a predominant� concern among average consumers.

Breedlove’s marketing, such as the national tour, has played a part in increasing the company’s market share nationally, said Brian Majeski, editor of Music Trades Magazine, based in Englewood, N.J. Majeski said that unique marketing, as well as an instrument with a different body shape and sound than most other guitars, has drawn more people to Breedlove. “They’ve tried to push the boundary,� Majeski said. “They sort of redefined what people think of as the contemporary acoustic guitar.� A few big names in the music business have jumped on Breedlove’s bandwagon. Madonna and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy use Breedlove guitars. After being in Bend for nearly two years, Breedlove is doing more to reach out to the com-

munity. Few residents, Newport said, know Breedlove is even located in Bend. On Thursday evenings, the company hosts a bluegrass music night. Those types of music events may become more frequent after Breedlove converts its main lobby, located at 2843 N.W. Lolo Drive in Bend, into a cafe, music venue, showroom and gift shop. Newport said the new space, which could be open as early as this summer, would primarily be used as a showroom and to sell merchandise, but it also will have art and be used to potentially sell drinks and food. Two people will staff it initially, he said. “It’ll be an extremely limited, but tasty menu,� Newport said. The new ukulele line, which will be mass-manufactured right next to Breedlove’s guitars, will use wood from Hawaii and Oregon. Kim Breedlove, who has been building guitars for nearly 40 years, said the ukulele manufacturing process uses all of the same techniques as the company’s guitar-building process and is a nice transition for him as he brings his career to an end. “It seemed like a logical progression,� Breedlove said.

How do I know when it’s time to replace my shock absorbers? I saw an ad on TV recently that said my car could be dangerous to drive if I didn’t replace them every 50,000 miles. Is this actually true? Also I confess to not really understanding the difference between a shock and a strut — how can I tell which kind my car has? It’s flat wrong to use scare tactics to sell services. Shocks and struts play an important role in keeping your tires firmly planted on the ground and providing vehicle stability, but aren’t nearly as important — in my opinion — as properly maintained tires and prudent driving practices. Your car’s suspension system uses springs at each of its corners to provide a smooth ride. Tires, wheels, brake parts, and suspension members combine as un-sprung weight. Upon hitting a bump they enter what’s called jounce. The spring is compressed, storing energy, which is soon released in rebound, as the bump is passed. But the combined mass of parts overshoots its original position and additional oscillations occur, disrupt-

A:

ing traction and vehicle stability. Heavier wheels, tires, brakes or suspension parts make matters worse, and are a performance trade-off. Modern shocks and struts use a piston that plunges back and forth in a tube filled with hydraulic fluid to dampen suspension movement. The suspension jounces and rebounds in a more controlled fashion, and subsequent oscillations are greatly reduced. Shock absorbers (usually one per corner) are typically found on trucks and older/larger cars and are a fairly inexpensive bolton part. Front wheel drive cars need greater width in the engine bay to fit a sideways engine and transmission, so a more compact, integrated suspension system, known as a MacPherson strut suspension, is used. The shock absorber, upper control arm and coil spring are integrated into a single vertical suspension member called a strut. Struts may also be found in the rear of many vehicles to reduce weight and/or improve performance. When it’s time to renew the shock absorber, either the entire strut (minus spring) is renewed, or a shock cartridge is inserted into the original strut. Replacement typically costs more than a

shock renewal due to the greater labor required in disassembly and reassembly. Also, realigning the suspension is recommended, as the new parts may differ very slightly in dimension and reinstallation position. Worn shocks and struts sneak up on you gradually. One day while slowing on a curving, bumpy road, you’ll get a queasy feeling the vehicle just isn’t as nailed down as it should be. Or, expansion joints on a rough section of road make you feel seasick, or your tires develop choppy tread wear. Also, if a shock or strut shows signs of fluid leakage, it’s time to renew it. Every vehicle is different, as well as roads travelled, driving habits and operator expectations. Replacement at 50,000 miles is a good recommendation for a bulky vehicle driven on windy, bumpy roads, or if stellar handling is desired. Being a skinflint, I go half again further than this for my around-town car. After replacement I usually say, “Wow. I should have done this sooner!” Brad Bergholdt is an automotive technology instructor at Evergreen Valley College in San Jose. E-mail questions to under-the-hood@earthlink.net.

Too hot or cold? Seat Glove makes bucket seats just right By Bob Plunkett New Car News

A car’s front bucket seat can be a comfortable spot to roost, as cushy con- G I Z tours and side bolsters seem to mold against your backside for a snug fit. Add the inevitable influence of climate conditions, however, and that upholstered bucket may

seem less than cozy. What to do? Install a Seat Glove. Each Seat Glove cover applies Coolmax fabric to a M O S bucket and allows the seat to breathe — and that air circulation means more comfort in warm or cold months. Seat Glove has a form-fitting border that stretches to fit the

bucket, with Coolmax in the seat section tinted either blue, red, gray, tan or yellow. The cover installs easily with hook-and-loop tape, but the fit is customized for each car’s make and model. Seat Glove sells in pairs at www.autosportcatalog.com. Example: Two Seat Glove covers for a Ford 2010 Explorer SUV (item #9755) tally to $132.
