Medicare deal for Oregon as vote nears

K-12 funding boost now may hit state budget later

HEALTH CARE REFORM Inside • Obama makes final plea for support, with House vote scheduled for today, Page A2

By Keith Chu The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — Oregon doctors and hospitals would see a bump in Medicare payments, and seniors might have an easier time finding a doctor, under a late concession to Oregon Democrats as part of the health care bill slated for a vote today in

the U.S. House. The change by Democratic leaders would benefit Oregon and 16 other states with low Medicare spending, including Washington and Wisconsin. It came just two days after Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Springfield, threatened to vote against the $940 billion health care overhaul bill unless the

change was made. Doctors and medical providers in Central Oregon have complained for decades that Medicare’s formula penalized them for operating efficiently compared with high-cost states like Florida. Jim Diegel, CEO of Cascade Healthcare Community, said he and other members of the Or-

egon Association of Hospitals & Health Systems worked with Oregon members of Congress to push for the deal. “We’re really proud that our delegation has acknowledged that this has been problematic for Oregon hospitals and Oregon physicians for a long time,” he said Saturday. See Medicare / A7

SALEM — Last month’s decision by state lawmakers to put $200 million of reserves into K-12 schools presented local school administrators with bad news, as well as good. The decision, hailed by education advocates in Salem, boosted the level of state funding for Central Oregon districts by more than $10 million in the budget year starting this July. But even while improving schools’ short-term picture, the modified state budget hurt Oregon’s overall long-term picture, boosting its projected 2011-13 budget hole to nearly $2.5 billion. As a result, the funds available for local school districts could be hit even harder next year than they would have otherwise. Last month’s modified state budget released an additional $1 million each to the Crook County and Jefferson County school districts, as well as more than $2 million for the Redmond School District and more than $5 million for Bend-La Pine Schools. But in many cases, the new money does little more than fill existing funding gaps and doesn’t help schools’ long-term outlook at all. Ivan Hernandez, Crook County school superintendent, calls the funds “a soft Band-Aid.” And he said the short-term good news merely camouflages an untenable long-term situation. “You’re playing Russian roulette, and there are bullets in all the chambers,” he said. “We’re going to shoot ourselves eventually here.” See Schools / A6

UNSAFE CONDITIONS Doug Jackson, who lives with his family in a home on the Warm Springs reservation, is concerned about the excessive amounts of trash that border his property, left. Also, his teen daughter’s bedroom window has not been replaced after being broken by a thrown rock in December; instead, it’s been boarded up with plywood.

By Dennis Overbye New York Times News Service

Seven years ago, a reclusive Russian mathematician startled the scientific world by writing a series of papers claiming to solve one of the most famous and intractable problems in mathematics, called the Poincare conjecture, and then disappearing into the wilds of St. Petersburg. Grigoriy Perelman, who did not show up to receive a prestigious Fields Medal from the International Mathematical Union in Madrid in 2006, has been named the winner of a $1 million prize — the first of its kind — for solving the problem by the Clay Mathematics Institute in Cambridge, Mass. One question: Will he accept? See Prize / A6

STRAINED RESOURCES Grant Clements, a maintenance worker for the Warm Springs Housing Authority, replaces broken laminate tile Thursday in one of the agency’s homes on the reservation. Clements said six people are responsible for maintaining all of the authority’s 200 or so housing units. “We do everything from changing the light bulbs (to fixing) doorknobs. Sometimes the work is overwhelming.”

WARM SPRINGS — amaged walls, boarded-up windows, crumbling sidewalks and drug-dealing neighbors are commonplace for people living in homes and apartments run by the Warm Springs Housing Authority. In four years living in a housing authority home in the West Hills on the reservation, Doug Jackson, 52, has seen that for himself. In December, someone threw a rock into his teenage daughter’s bedroom. The window has been boarded up since, he said last week, pointing to the plywood covering. “There are no gutters; I’ve requested that,” he said. “My wife was pregnant and would slip on the ice in front of the door, because there are no gutters.” For years, while residents like Jackson have been dealing with unsafe conditions, the housing authority has continued to ignore crime, poor housing conditions and other problems flagged by federal investigators as far back as 2003, when government watchdogs found rampant misuse of federal funds by the housing authority. Top tribal officials say they’ve begun taking steps to clean up the housing authority, which is a semi-independent agency affiliated with the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. In recent years, they’ve disbanded the authority’s board of directors, reinstated many of the same directors, updated accounting procedures and now have begun the process of taking direct control over the authority itself.

Since 2003, federal inspectors have flagged low-income housing units in Warm Springs for poor living conditions, misused funds and crime. Now, the tribes want control of the project — but there are doubts that will help.

WASHINGTON — Immigrant advocates, frustrated with President Barack Obama’s lack of progress on legislation to overhaul the immigration system, called one month ago for a march in Washington that they said would display the strength of their numbers and would give the president the push he needed to get the debate rolling in Congress. That was then. In the space of a few weeks, with the acrimonious health care debate eclipsing other issues in Washington, the results advocates can expect from the scheduled rally of tens of thousands of their supporters here today appear to have diminished. Now the question for advocates, who planned their go-for-broke mobilization as a catalyst to jumpstart a bill in Congress, is whether it will at least help to keep a conversation about immigration going in Washington between now and the November elections.

Health vote backlash Advocates say the mobilization has already achieved results. In large part due to their prodding, Obama held meetings last week with groups engaged in the immigration debate. On Thursday, Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., unveiled a blueprint for a bill that would offer a path to legal status for an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants, and also included new provisions for expanded workplace and border enforcement. Obama immediately embraced the blueprint. But after repeated promises last year that he would move an immigration bill in early 2010, the president scaled back last week, saying only that he would work to “forge a bipartisan consensus” this year. Furthermore, Graham said Friday an immigration bill could be “the first casualty” if Democrats adopt health care legislation. The rally allows advocates a chance to show a coalition that has broadened since popular opposition roundly defeated a Bush administration immigration proposal in 2007. Evangelical Christian churches have joined the effort. African-American organizations, which in 2007 were concerned that immigrants could pose competition to black workers, are more fully on board. While the AFL-CIO did not support the 2007 overhaul proposal, this year organized labor has united. But business groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which strongly backed the 2007 legislation, are less enthusiastic this year and will stay away today. Schumer and Graham have said the rift between business and labor over their proposal will be one of the hardest to bridge.

Immigration overhaul outline The outline of immigration legislation in the Senate, released last week, calls for illegal immigrants to admit they broke the law, pay a fine and back taxes, and perform community service if they want to pursue legal status. They would also be required to pass background checks and be proficient in English. The draft also: • Gives legal permanent residence to people who graduate with doctoral or master’s degrees from U.S. universities. • Adopts zero tolerance for illegal immigrants who commit crimes and expands enforcement of immigration laws. • Creates a flexible legal immigration system that brings in more low-skilled workers when jobs are available and fewer in a recession. • Requires all U.S. workers (citizens and legal immigrants) to get fraud-proof Social Security cards with a biometric identifier.

New York Times News Service

President Barack Obama, in a politically charged visit to Capitol Hill on Saturday, tried to rally support for health care overhaul by telling the House’s 253 Democrats to ignore the gloom-and-doom midterm election scenarios that Republican leaders and pundits have suggested if they pass the health care measure. “You’re here to represent your constituencies, and if you think your constituencies honestly shouldn’t be helped, you shouldn’t vote for this,” Obama said. “But if you agree the system’s not working for ordinary families ... then help us fix this system.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is at left, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is at right.

Obama’s final health care plea Bulletin wire reports WASHINGTON — Victory within reach, President Barack Obama exhorted House Democrats on Saturday to stay true to their party’s legacy and make history by bringing health insurance to millions of struggling families now left out. Leaders exuded confidence as they defused thorny problems in the countdown to a landmark vote. Obama evoked Abraham Lincoln’s moral compass and extolled Democratic achievements such as Social Security and Medicare — once controversial, now an essential part of the social fabric — on a day marked by a frenetic hunt for votes inside the Capitol and angry tea party demonstrations at the door. Some protesters hurled racial insults at black members of Congress. “It is in your hands,” Obama said, bringing lawmakers to their feet, far from the chanting crowds. “It is time to pass health care reform for America, and I am confident that you are going to do it tomorrow.” In a carefully orchestrated appeal to unity ahead of a career-defining vote, Obama and House leaders were joined by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who brought a pledge from more than 50 of his Democratic colleagues to promptly finish the bill after

HEALTH CARE REFORM the House votes today. House Democrats have been wary of being left in the lurch by the famously unpredictable Senate. A series of last-minute flare-ups threatened to slow the Democrats’ march to passage, after more than a year of grueling effort. The most intense focus was on a small group of Democrats concerned that abortion funding restrictions in the legislation don’t go far enough. Determined to avoid votes on such a charged issue, Democratic leaders raised the possibility of addressing the concerns of abortion foes through an executive order from Obama. It would reaffirm existing federal law barring taxpayer-funded abortions except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. House Democratic leaders abandoned a much-challenged procedure for passing the legislation after an outcry from Republicans and protest from some of their members. According to the new plan, the House will vote up or down the health care bill passed by the Senate on Christmas Eve as well as a package of changes. The Senate bill would then go to Obama for his signature, the companion measure to the Senate, which hopes to pass it

within the week. Minutes after the leadership’s change of heart, Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Calif., announced his support for the health care legislation. Cardoza had criticized the planned maneuver.

Cost saving The 10-year, $940 billion measure represents the biggest expansion of the social safety net since Medicare was enacted more than 50 years ago. It provides health coverage to 32 million people now uninsured, bars insurance companies from denying coverage to those in poor health, and sets up new marketplaces where self-employed people and small businesses can pool together to buy coverage. Less certain is whether it will also deliver on Obama’s promise to slow the punishing pace of health care costs. Republicans, unanimous in their opposition, complained anew about the bill’s cost and reach. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said a fuller analysis of the bill’s long-term costs is needed, but Democrats have left no time to carry it out. Displaying a gritty confidence, House Democratic leaders said they were getting closer by the hour. “We are on the verge of making great history for the American people,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Obama praised two first-term

Democrats who switched from no to yes — Colorado’s Betsy Markey and John Boccieri of Ohio — for staying true to Democratic principles. “I know this is a tough vote,” the president said, adding he also believes “it will end up being the smart thing to do politically.” Obama’s appearance came on a frantic day bordering on the surreal and sometimes turning ugly. Inside the Capitol, Democratic leaders pursued the last few votes to reach the 216 needed to pass the sweeping legislation, sometimes in full view on the House floor. Several thousand demonstrators opposed to the bill swirled on nearby streets, with some surrounding lawmakers between the Capitol and their offices. Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., said that as he left the Cannon House Office Building with Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a leader of the 1960s civil rights movement, some among the crowd chanted “the N-word, the N-word, 15 times.” Both Carson and Lewis are black. Lewis spokeswoman Brenda Jones also said the incident occurred. “It was like going into the time machine with John Lewis,” Carson said. Democratic leaders and Obama focused last-minute lobbying efforts on two groups of Democrats: 37 who voted against an earlier bill in the House and 40 who voted for it only after first making sure it would include strict abortion limits that now have been modified.

“Is this the single most important step that we have taken on health care since Medicare? Absolutely. ... It is time to pass health care reform for America, and I am confident that (we) are going to do it tomorrow.” — President Barack Obama, on Saturday

Timeline: The yearlong battle over health care After nearly a year of debate, Congress is poised to reach a decision on health care overhaul. The legislation has been on the brink of failure a number of times, but President Barack Obama, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others have kept it alive.

June 2009

December

Health care dominates the domestic agenda in Washington. Sen. Ted Kennedy, suffering from brain cancer, circulates legislation proposing that all Americans have access to “essential health care benefits,” but does not indicate how he would pay for his proposals.

A legislative floor fight occurs through much of December, as many Republicans use various parliamentary weapons to block the bill, and many Democrats submit amendments.

Dec. 24: SENATE BILL PASSES On the 25th straight day of debate, the Senate votes 60-39 to pass the bill.

Jan. 15, 2010 Obama and top Congressional Democrats hold negotiating sessions for two days in an effort to resolve differences between the House and Senate bills. By the end, negotiators say they have reached a deal.

Jan. 19 Sen. Kennedy at the White House health care forum in March 2009.

July 14

Scott Brown, a Massachusetts Republican, wins a special election to fill Kennedy’s Senate seat. The victory leaves Democrats without the 60 votes needed to secure a supermajority.

House Democratic leaders introduce a bill that would expand health coverage, rein in the growth of Medicare and raise taxes on those with high incomes. President Obama holds a news conference in prime time to help round up votes among the growing minority of Democrats concerned by the size and cost of the legislation.

Scott Brown celebrates his victory as the “41st Republican senator.”

August During congressional recess, the debate turns hostile at town hall-style meetings. Members of Congress are shouted down, hung in effigy and taunted by vocal protesters.

Feb. 22 For the first time, Obama lays out a legislative proposal for overhauling health care, including several measures intended to appeal to moderate House Democrats. He challenges Republicans to come forward with their ideas.

Feb. 25 Obama hosts a live televised bipartisan meeting, but no agreement emerges.

March 3 A man is restrained at a town hall meeting with Sen. Arlen Specter, a newly turned Democrat.

Sept. 9

Obama calls for an up-or-down vote to be scheduled in the next few weeks. The tentative plan for approval is for the House to adopt the bill passed by the Senate, and for both chambers to pass a package of changes that would bridge gaps between the initial House and Senate versions.

To regain his political footing on the issue, Obama delivers a forceful speech before Congress.

Oct. 29 Democratic leaders unveil a combination of the bills approved by three House committees over the summer.

Nov. 3 Republicans present a more modest plan that would reward states for reducing the number of uninsured and limit damages in medical malpractice lawsuits.

President Obama rallies supporters of his health care reforms in Missouri on March 10.

March 18

Nov. 7: HOUSE BILL PASSES

The Congressional Budget Office issues a preliminary analysis on the final package, allowing House Democrats to point to significant cost savings in the decades ahead.

With the addition of a measure that would add restrictions to abortion coverage, the bill passes in the House. The House also defeats the Republicans’ plan.

MARJAH OFFENSIVE

U.S. turns blind eye to opium in Afghan town By Rod Nordland New York Times News Service

KABUL — The effort to win over Afghans on former Taliban turf in Marjah has put American and NATO commanders in the unusual position of arguing against opium eradication, pitting them against some Afghan officials who are pushing to destroy the harvest. From Gen. Stanley McChrystal on down, the military’s position is clear: “U.S. forces no longer eradicate,” as one NATO official put it. Opium is the main livelihood of 60 to 70 percent of the farmers in Marjah, which was seized from Taliban rebels in a major offensive last month. American Marines occupying the area are under orders to leave the farmers’ fields alone. “Marjah is a special case right now,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Eggers, a member of the general’s Strategic Advisory Group, his top advisory body. “We don’t trample the livelihood of those we’re trying to win over.” U.N. drug officials agree with the Americans, though they

“The Taliban are the ones who profit from opium, so you are letting your enemy get financed by this.” — Zulmai Afzali, Afghan Ministry of Counternarcotics acknowledge the conundrum. Pictures of NATO and other allied soldiers “walking next to the opium fields won’t go well with domestic audiences, but the approach of postponing eradicating in this particular case is a sensible one,” said Jean-Luc Lemahieu, who is in charge of the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime here. Afghan officials, however, are divided. Though some support the American position, others, citing a constitutional ban on opium cultivation, want to plow the fields under before the harvest, which has already begun in parts of Helmand province.

“How can we allow the world to see lawful forces in charge of Marjah next to fields full of opium, which one way or another will be harvested and turned into a poison that kills people all over the world?” said Zulmai Afzali, the spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Counternarcotics. “The Taliban are the ones who profit from opium, so you are letting your enemy get financed by this so he can turn around and kill you back,” he added, referring to how the Taliban squeeze farmers for money to run their operations. The argument may strike some as a jarring reversal of early tensions with Afghan officials, some of whom vehemently resisted allout American pressure to stop opium production in the years right after the 2001 invasion. Though the U.S. government’s official position is still to support opium crop eradication in general, some American civilian officials say the internal debate over Marjah is far from over within parts of the State Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Netanyahu does not want to be surprised again by a construction announcement. But will he act to stop the projects as they come up? He did just that two weeks ago when the mayor of Jerusalem was about to announce the redesign of a Palestinian neighborhood against the wishes of the residents. After Obama officials called him, Netanyahu called the mayor and got him to delay. “I don’t think anything official will be announced, but I can imagine that there will be little building for Jews in Arab neighborhoods,” said a former official who remains a consultant to the Israeli government and would speak only on condition of anonymity. Said another government adviser, however: “I don’t see any concessions possible in Jerusalem. It is politically impossible.”

Pope offers apology, not penalty, for abuse The Associated Press DUBLIN — Pope Benedict XVI’s unprecedented letter to Ireland apologizing for chronic child abuse within the Catholic Church failed Saturday to calm the anger of many victims who accused the Vatican of ducking its own responsibility in promoting a worldwide culture of cover-up. His message — the product of weeks of consultation with Irish Benedict XVI bishops, who read it aloud at Masses across this predominantly Catholic nation — rebuked Ireland’s church leaders for “grave errors of judgment” in failing to observe the church’s secretive canon laws. The pope, who himself stands accused of approving the transfer of an accused priest for treatment rather than informing German police during his 1977-82 term as Munich archbishop, pledged a church inspection of unspecified dioceses and orders in Ireland to ensure their child-protection policies were effective. He also appealed to priests still harboring sins of child molestation to confess. “Openly acknowledge your guilt, submit yourselves to the demands of justice, but do not despair of God’s mercy,” he wrote. But Benedict offered no endorsement of three official Irish investigations that found the church leadership to blame for the scale and longevity of abuse heaped on Irish children throughout the 20th century.

Warm Springs Continued from A1 A spokesman for the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department gave the tribes credit for taking some steps to improve the authority’s operations. But he said the tribes have acted far too slowly to rectify the dangerous conditions in homes where lowincome tribal members live.

Safety violations A January 2009 HUD monitoring report found major failures in the authority’s management of the roughly 200 homes and apartments it builds and maintains with federal funds. That report found that 91 percent of housing authority rental units had health and safety violations, such as range hood fans venting into kitchen cabinets and other problems, including: • 40 percent of rental units and 73 percent of homeownership units hadn’t been inspected in at least two years. • 63 percent of rental units had no working smoke detector. • 64 percent of rental units had major maintenance issues, including fire damage, exposed wiring and electrical shorts. • 42 percent of units showed poor-quality work, including unsafe water heater installation, collapsing subfloors and deteriorating concrete walkways on brandnew homes. On top of that, the inspection found widespread fear of violence, drug use and other crime in housing authority units. “Tenants are living in a state of fear, constantly being worried about criminal activity and drug abuse,” the 2009 HUD report said. “In some cases, they take matters into their own hands by creating physical barriers or hazards for potential criminals.” Sharon Jones, the housing authority office administrator and housing manager, said the authority has worked hard to fix damage and clean up the housing units. “We’ve improved the conditions over the last year, we’ve been more adamant about how it’s kept, the cleanliness, and we’re being more proactive with our tenants,” Jones said. At Jackson’s house last week, a maintenance crew was replacing some broken tiles he reported about three weeks earlier. One of the repairmen, Grant Clements, said six employees are responsible for maintaining all of the housing units. “We do everything from changing the light bulbs (to fixing) doorknobs. Sometimes the work is overwhelming,” Clements said. Former Housing Authority Executive Director Jeff Sanders estimated the waiting list for subsidized housing is between 200 and 300 families on a reservation with a population of 3,600. Meanwhile, criminals continue to live in housing authority units, even after the police share reports with authority officials, HUD found. Tribal police shared 27 reports of crimes committed by tenants with housing authority officials after a 2003 audit, but eventually stopped contacting the authority when it became clear the reports didn’t make a difference. “When no action was taken to evict tenants, the practice was discontinued,” the HUD report said. Jones said the housing authority does its best to report criminal activity to police and child protective services, but that proof is of-

“We’ve improved the conditions over the last year, we’ve been more adamant about how it’s kept, the cleanliness, and we’re being more proactive with our tenants.” — Sharon Jones, housing manager, Warm Springs Housing Authority

“Whether (or not) you take and put everything under the tribe, I don’t think that is going to solve the problems. The question is, how do you get affordable safe houses to the Indian community?” — Jeff Sanders, former director of the housing authority ten hard to find. “Obviously there is gang activity going on, and it’s pretty difficult to prove,” Jones said. “I need backup, substantial evidence.” Capt. Sam Williams of the Warm Springs Police Department said tribal police plan to hire two additional officers to address crime in housing authority units. These problems continue, despite the fact that the Warm Springs Housing Authority receives about $1.4 million annually to provide housing for the low-income residents of its reservation, through the Indian Housing Block Grant program.

History of problems These weren’t the first problems that HUD has found with the Warm Springs Housing Authority. Its troubles are laid out in detail in a series of federal audits, beginning in 2003 and continuing through September 2009. A 2003 HUD audit found widespread failures in the housing authority’s accounting system. The 2003 audit, and a follow-up inspection in 2007, also found: • $204,456 in travel expenses by housing authority board members and staff that weren’t supported by receipts or other records. • $11,176 in personal expenses for authority board members, including entertainment, meals and finance charges, on housing authority credit cards. • $119,861 in unjustified payments to housing authority board members and staff, including $1,000 bonuses described as “cost of living adjustments” that had no connection to wages or inflation. In response to those revelations, the Warm Springs Tribal Council disbanded the housing authority board in 2005, but restored it several months later. When Jeff Sanders was brought in as executive director of the housing authority at that time, he said he found an accounting system that was decades out of date. Sanders had previously served as the internal audit compliance officer for the tribal government, and was a longtime Jefferson County School Board member. “They just didn’t have sound accounting practices or principles,” Sanders said. “They had an audit firm that came out of Yakima. The staff would put all their bills in a box, and he would go through it by hand, and they had a hand ledger (for accounting records).” Sanders, Warm Springs Secretary Treasurer Charles “Jody” Calica and tribal Chief Financial Officer Ray Potter said the financial abuses had stopped after 2003, something mostly confirmed by the 2009 HUD report. However, the subpar accounting methods persisted into 2007, when another HUD Office of In-

spector General audit found $1.4 million in spending that was improperly accounted for. The tribes have disputed the finding. Sanders and the reconstituted board updated the accounting and inventory control system, which the HUD officials noted in their most recent monitoring report. “On January 16, 2009 (the Northwest Office of Native American Programs) toured the WSHA warehouse and noted significant improvements made to the internal controls,” the office’s grant evaluations director, Patricia Boydston, wrote in a letter to Sanders and Calica. That report did find that housing authority board members paid themselves $37,475 in stipends in 2003 and $24,125 in 2004, in apparent violation of the board’s own policy, which capped stipends at $50 per meeting, with a maximum of $100 each month per board member, the HUD report said.

Tribal control questioned Sanders, the former housing authority director, said he doesn’t see tribal control as a solution. “Whether (or not) you take and put everything under the tribe, I don’t think that is going to solve the problems,” Sanders said. “The question is, how do you get affordable safe houses to the Indian community?” Sanders and former housing authority board member Leroy Smith Sr. said Calica and the tribal council were closely involved in the authority’s operations over the past three years and are part of the problem. “They interfered in everything that we did,” Smith said. Smith was removed from the board after tribal officials noted he had been convicted of involuntary manslaughter 30 years ago. Smith said he had previously disclosed the conviction. Smith, like other housing authority board members, was appointed by the Warm Springs Tribal Council, the same council that now is charged with cleaning up the housing authority. The housing authority has received $12.6 million since 2003. But the HUD guidelines call for a detailed monitoring report on the authority’s work only every five to six years. Even after the 2003 monitoring report found rampant misuse of federal funds and the 2009 report identified pervasive safety problems with the homes owned by the housing authority, HUD elected not to begin its enforcement process against the housing authority. In fact, HUD spokesman Lee Jones said the department granted a handful of extensions to the housing authority, giving it more than a year to correct the 10 major

issues that auditors identified in their report. The most recent extension expired Thursday. And last year, through the federal stimulus bill, the Warm Springs Housing Authority was awarded a $626,000 grant to build more homes. That grant triggered a new federal audit, this one by the HUD Office of Inspector General, which chided the housing authority for operating without enough members on its board of directors. Calica said the tribal council is working to fix the problems at the housing authority. He and Jones said the tribes have ordered an assessment of the housing authority’s homes and apartments. They intend to hire two police officers solely tasked with cleaning up those homes. And the accounting and inventory system has been improved. “Those, if they proceed expeditiously, would be important steps to take,” Jones said. HUD is still considering whether to give the tribes more time to comply with the 10 issues raised in its 2009 audit, but as of last week, that appeared unlikely, Jones said. “The expectation is they will be considerable distance from us being able to certify that they have addressed all 10 of the findings,” Jones said. HUD has the option of cutting funding to Indian housing authorities that show consistent mismanagement, but only at the end of a lengthy enforcement process. The first step is a notice of warning, which has been sent only twice to Northwest tribes in the past five years, Jones said, adding that he knows of no tribe that has had its funding cut. In this case, though, Jones cautioned that the Warm Springs Housing Authority hasn’t moved quickly enough to improve conditions for its poorest tribal members. “We are becoming increasingly concerned, however, that these are steps that are being taken in many instances more than a year after the monitoring report came out,” Jones said. “We are very concerned about the pace of the improvements that are being performed there. We think it needs to be done much more quickly and much more systematically.” Keith Chu can be reached at 202-662-7456 or at kchu@bendbulletin.com.

Critics take aim at CIA’s Panetta over more drone strikes By Peter Finn and Joby Warrick The Washington Post

The plan was a standard one in the CIA’s war against extremists in Pakistan: The agency was using a Predator drone to monitor a residential compound; a Taliban leader was expected to arrive shortly; a CIA missile would kill him. On the morning of Aug. 5, CIA Director Leon Panetta was informed that Baitullah Mehsud was about to reach his father-in-law’s home. Mehsud would be in the open, minimizing the risk that civilians would be injured or killed. Panetta authorized the strike, according to a senior intelligence official. Some hours later, officials at CIA headquarters in Langley identified Mehsud on a feed from the Predator’s camera. He was seen resting on the roof of the house, hooked up to a drip to palliate a kidney problem. He was not alone. Panetta was pulled out of a White House meeting and told that Mehsud’s wife was also on the rooftop, giving her husband a massage. Mehsud, implicated in suicide bombings and the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, was a major target. Panetta told his officers to take the shot. Mehsud and his wife were killed. Panetta, an earthy former congressman with exquisitely honed Washington smarts, was President Barack Obama’s sur-

prise choice to head the CIA. During his 13 months in the job, Panetta has led a relentless assault on al-Qaida and Taliban operatives in Pakistan, delivering on Obama’s promise to target them more aggressively than his predecessor. The stepped-up drone strikes, Panetta’s opposition to the release of information about CIA interrogation, and his resistance to greater oversight of the agency by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have prompted criticism that he is a thrall of the agency’s old guard. In the meantime, the strikes have begun to draw greater scrutiny, with watchdog groups demanding to know more about how they are carried out and the legal reasoning behind the killings. Panetta says U.S. counterterrorism policies in Pakistan are legal and highly effective, and that he is acutely aware of the gravity of some of the decisions thrust upon him. “Any time you make decisions on life and death, I don’t take that lightly. That’s a serious decision,” he said. “And yet, I also feel very comfortable with making those decisions because I know I’m dealing with people who threaten the safety of this country and are prepared to attack us at any moment.”

Thousands rally to pull troops from 2 war zones By Matthew Barakat The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Thousands of protesters — many directing their anger squarely at President Barack Obama — marched through the nation’s capital Saturday to urge immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan. At least eight people, including activist Cindy Sheehan, were arrested by U.S. Park Police at the end of the march, after laying coffins at a fence outside the White House. Friday marked the seventh anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. “Arrest that war criminal!” Sheehan shouted outside the White House before her arrest, referring to Obama. At a rally before the march, Sheehan asked whether “the honeymoon was over with that war criminal in the White House” — an apparent reference to Obama — prompting moderate applause. The protesters defied orders to clear the sidewalk on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House, and park police say they face charges of failure to obey a lawful order. Activist Ralph Nader told thousands who gathered in Lafayette Park across from the White House that Obama has essentially continued the policies of the Bush administration, and it was foolish to have thought otherwise. “He’s kept Guantanamo open, he’s continued to use indefinite detention,” Nader said. The only real difference, he said is that “Obama’s speeches are better.” Others were more conciliatory toward Obama. Shirley Allan, of Silver Spring, Md., carried a sign that read, “President Obama We love you but we need to tell you! Your hands are getting bloody!! Stop it now.”

Smaller crowds The protest organized by Act Now to Stop War and Racism, or ANSWER, drew a smaller crowd than the tens of thousands who marched in 2006 and 2007. Protests in cities around the country also had far fewer participants than in the past. Protesters in Washington stopped at the offices of military contractor Halliburton — where they tore apart an effigy of former Vice President and Halliburton Chief Executive Dick Cheney — the Mortgage Bankers Association and The Washington Post offices. Despite the arrests, the protest was peaceful. At the outset, police closed a portion of the sidewalk in front of the White House fence after protesters tried to use mud and large stencils to spell out “Iraq veterans against the war.” Once the sidewalk was closed, the protesters stenciled the message on the street using mud they had carried in buckets to the rally. Sheehan has been a vocal critic of the war since her 21year-old son Casey was killed in Iraq in April 2004.

Last month, the Obama administration decided: As of Sept. 1, Operation Iraqi Freedom will become Operation New Dawn, a name designed to symbolize the dramatic drawdown of U.S. forces that is planned and “recognize our evolving relationship with the government of Iraq,” Defense Secretary Robert Gates wrote in a memo.

War Continued from A1 That means: inspiration to the troops, righteousness to Americans at home, partnership to allied countries, peace and promise to noncombatant civilians. And to the enemy: We’re-coming-to-kill-you aggression. The key question: “Who is your target audience?” said Brig. Gen. Sean MacFarland, who is credited with helping turn around the insurgent violence in Ramadi, the provincial capital of Iraq’s Anbar province. “If it’s just internal consumption, you want to give a name the soldiers and Marines will get pumped up about. But if it’s more for Iraqi consumption, it has to translate well. And if it’s going to be in newspaper headlines and be commented about on oped pages, then you have to give it a more politically correct name.” So when the military’s top brass decided recently that the denouement of the Iraq war merited a name, they treaded carefully, no doubt mindful of the chortling that followed President George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” announcement in 2003. Last month, the Obama administration decided: As of Sept. 1, Operation Iraqi Freedom will become Operation New Dawn, a name designed to symbolize the dramatic drawdown of U.S. forces that is planned and “recognize our evolving relationship with the government of Iraq,” Defense Secretary Robert Gates wrote in a memo.

All about PR Few recognized how intertwined the arts of public relations and war were as well as Winston Churchill, according to Gregory Sieminski, who wrote about operation names in Parameters magazine, a publication of the Army War College. Churchill developed guidelines during World War II that said battle names should not “imply boastful or overconfident sentiment” or “be names of frivolous character.” Adolf Hitler took operation names seriously, too, changing the name of the 1941 German invasion of the Soviet Union from “Fritz” to “Barbarossa,” after the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the architects of the war in Afghanistan sought a different approach. They wanted something lofty, a name with sweep and grandeur to evoke the American spirit. The initial offering, Operation Infinite Justice, was swing-for-the-fences big, to be sure. And it had a certain poetry to it, while at the same time conforming with Pentagon regulations that prohibit, among other things, names that “express a degree of bellicosity inconsistent with traditional American ideals or current foreign policy.” But infinite is awfully long, even for the most patient taxpayer — and the word offended Muslims who believe such benevolence can only be provided by Allah. After some called that name too propagandistic, the Pentagon changed it to Operation Enduring Freedom, which quieted critics and turned out to be accurate, too. As then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said in announcing the name: “Enduring

The Associated Press

U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Mathew Gorzkiewicz tries out an Afghan boy’s sling shot during a patrol in Marjah, Afghanistan, on Thursday. Since U.S., Afghan and NATO forces wrested Marjah from the Taliban — in an offensive officially known as Operation Moshtarak — they’ve been going to extraordinary lengths to cultivate townspeople who had lived under insurgent control for years. That’s a tall order in a place where many Taliban fighters are from Marjah and still in hiding — supported or at least tolerated by the surrounding communities. suggests that this is not a quick fix.” For the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Pentagon’s top brass settled on Operation Iraqi Freedom. But at least one administration official publicly called the assault Operation Iraqi Liberation, providing fodder for conspiracists and late-night comics. “They’re calling it ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom,’” TV comic Jay Leno quipped at the time. “They were going to call it ‘Operation Iraqi Liberation,’ then they realized, uh-oh, that spells ‘OIL.’” In Iraq and Afghanistan, most operation names are for relatively small missions — hunting for insurgents or weapons caches — many of which are named by low-ranking field officers who have little time or inclination to worry about public scrutiny. The names they choose range from the ominous (Operation Black Typhoon) to the curious (Operation Tangerine Squeeze) to the mysterious (Operation Soprano Sunset — something to do with the fat lady singing, perhaps?)

Snakes or rappers? According to a list compiled by globalsecurity.org, an Alexandria-based defense news Web site, operations have been named for Civil War generals, snakes, predators (both mammal and arachnid), violent acts of nature, weaponry, comic book characters, and, yes, rappers. Operation Slim Shady was a series of raids in Kirkuk, Iraq, that led to the detention of 37 suspected insurgents in 2004. There have been plays from football (Operation Flea Flicker) and baseball (Triple Play), and all manner of animal sounds — Roaring Tiger, Buffalo Grunt, Dragon’s Breath.

ing exercise before the invasion of Iraq — even practice runs get a moniker — he borrowed from the unit’s hallowed history, adding a little modern spice for young soldiers. The result, Operation Bastogne Smackdown, awkwardly combined a heroic World War II battle and the glossy shtick of cable TV wrestling, but it “sounded cool,” he said. And it took with the rank and file, who soon were joking about how they were going to “layeth the smacketh down.”

Getting creative Most oddball names come from young soldiers looking for a creative outlet amid the grind of war. “But once it gets at the battalion level and above, you have a little more adult supervision,” MacFarland said. “I never wanted to write home and tell a mom and dad their son was killed in Operation Grab Ass.” Or, as Churchill put it, names should not “enable some widow or mother to say that her son was killed in an operation called

‘Bunnyhug’ or ‘Ballyhoo.’” When Brig. Gen. H.R. McMaster got to Iraq in 2005, he looked askance at the harsh, blow-’emup rhetoric. He assigned one of his more erudite soldiers, an officer with a doctorate in Middle Eastern studies, to compile a list of names that would capture the mission’s ethos and be palatable to the Iraqis. Then McMaster took the list to the local mayor and police chief, and had them pick — or propose their own. The result was an Arabic phrase that the Americans translated to Operation Restoring Rights. “We knew it was important to bring the population with us,” McMaster said. Overly violent names “help the enemy portray the mission as an attack on the people and the city, rather than a security operation and an attempt to bring life back.” But how to write the ending of a long slog, when much of the country just wants the war to go away? That requires restraint. Poetry over prose. Thus, Operation New Dawn. Never mind that it’s redundant (aren’t all dawns new?). Churchill himself might have approved. Then again, he didn’t have to contend with late-night monologues. A day after Operation New Dawn was unveiled, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel took to the airwaves with a dishwasher detergent joke, proving that no name is immune to ridicule. “Starting September 1st — this is true,” Kimmel said, “the war will be known as ‘Operation New Dawn.’ It’s twice the grease-fighting power of the original ‘Dawn.’ It will make your war spotless.”

Mexico’s drug war takes growing toll on Americans By Mark Stevenson The Associated Press

MEXICO CITY — More Americans in Mexico are falling victim to a wave of drug violence sweeping the country, a change driven home by the recent killing of a U.S. Consulate employee and her husband who were gunned down after leaving a children’s birthday party. The number of U.S. citizens killed in Mexico has more than doubled to 79 in 2009 from 35 in 2007, according to the U.S. State Department’s annual count. No figures were available for the first two months of 2010. While only some of the killings are specifically listed as “executions” or “drug-related,” the increase in homicides appears to be related to drug battles. In Ciudad Juarez, the northern border city hardest hit by drug violence and where the consulate employee was killed, homicides of Americans rose to 23 in 2009 from two in 2007. The annual murder rate for the estimated 500,000 American citizens in Mexico at any one time has risen — but still remains lower than in some U.S. cities: about 15 per 100,000. Baltimore’s 2009 homicide rate was 37 per 100,000 residents. American deaths make up only a tiny fraction of Mexico’s 17,900 drug-related killings since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon launched a military-led drug war. The government says the majority of those killed in Mexico’s drug violence were involved in the narcotics trade. But an increasing number of bystanders are dying in the crossfire, and Americans

Schools Continued from A1 The explanation for why the short-term gain of schools contributes to long-term pain for the state is simpler than it might seem. The Legislature last year said the state’s K-12 budget would be only $5.8 billion, plus $200 million in reserves if the economy held steady. The economy didn’t hold steady, however. Rather, the picture got considerably worse in the state’s latest fiscal forecast. But lawmakers last month approved the $200 million anyway, saying the funding was vital for schools. The funding made the 2011-13 budget situation worse under the state’s budgeting rules. Because the $200 million will be doled out to districts in a single year — the second half of the two-year budget cycle — its impact will be doubled on the figure needed in 2011 to maintain the status quo in school services. It therefore increased Oregon’s projected overall budget hole for 2011-13 by $400 million, to nearly $2.5 billion. To put that figure in perspective, it’s more than triple the gap that would have appeared in the current budget if Oregon voters voted down two tax increases in January — a gap that supporters of the tax measures said would be disastrous for Oregon. “This is not a perfect situation, and that’s an absolute understatement,” said Chuck Bennett, a lobbyist for the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators, of the looming fiscal crisis. “As we look into the next biennium, we’re very concerned.” How the influx of new funding hit school districts this year, as well as how well situated they are for a far bleaker situation next year, varies from district to district based on their different philosophies. In Jefferson County, Superintendent Rick Molitor said his board last year braced for a worstcase scenario. They budgeted expecting the state would allocate $5.4 billion for schools, basically assuming that both tax measures, 66 and 67, would be defeated and that the $200 million in reserves would not materialize. He said the decision by lawmakers to use those reserves, even in the face of impending bad news, amounted to “let’s worry about the future when it arises.” “I don’t take that approach,” he said. “I don’t think that is a fiscally sound approach to take. ... We’re looking at that $2.5 billion figure and that’s a scary thing to look at for our future. ... It would be shortsighted on our part not to plan for that.” He said that, thanks to its fiscally conservative approach, the district will be able to use the funds to assure a healthy reserve going into the 2011 budget year, and potentially will even look at adding new programs. Bend-La Pine Superintendent Ron Wilkinson is looking at re-

are among them. Tania Lozoya, 15, of El Paso, Texas, was killed by a stray bullet at her aunt’s house across the border in Ciudad Juarez in May 2009, after gunfire broke out when two men chased another man into the backyard of the residence. In December, a California assistant school principal, Augustin Salcedo, was killed after he was abducted from a restaurant along with five other men while he and his wife were visiting her hometown of Gomez Palacio, in the northern state of Durango. The motive for the mass abduction remains unclear. Other Americans appear to have been specifically targeted. U.S. anti-kidnapping expert Felix Batista was abducted by gunmen in December 2008 in the northern city of Saltillo, where he had gone to advise local businessmen on how to avoid becoming victims of the country’s wave of kidnappings. He has not been found. “I see it as, my brother was interfering with their profit margin,” said Batista’s sister, Jackie Batista. “That’s their line of business. Other than drugs, it’s kidnapping, so people want to know how to keep themselves safe, and that intrudes into their profit margin.” More than a year after his disappearance, nobody knows for sure who took Batista. “I think that’s my biggest fear,” Batista said. “That this case will never be resolved. ... Excuse the phrase, and I hate to use it, that it has gone to the grave with those people who were involved.” Americans whose relatives have become victims of Mexico’s drug war have established an

ceiving an extra $5 million from the state, thanks to lawmakers’ decision to trigger the $200 million in reserves. But rather than representing a windfall, that is money the district had been counting on. Board members had adopted a budget predicated upon a $6 billion overall state schools budget. “Our philosophy has been that we really need to serve the kids we have with what’s available to us,” he said. The district’s decision to budget assuming $6 billion for schools on the state level included a “degree of gamble” but was based on “some pretty good information” from local lawmakers. “You could say that we were too confident, but the truth is we were dealing with the margins,” he said. “We had actually built some cushion in there for ourselves as we were going forward.” He said the decision means the district’s cuts this year won’t be as large as they would have been otherwise. But as for how to deal with the bleaker picture in 2011, his advice for school administrators: “Then it’s time to resign,” he joked. He said there is some potential good news on the federal front, in terms of decisions to boost special education funding. He said he is also hoping the economy recovers sooner than expected. “To try and say ($2.5 billion) would exactly be the amount would be premature,” he said. The fiscal wild card in the state’s projections is whether Congress steps in to provide another stimulus package, or “son of stimulus,” as some have called it. A recent jobs bill passed by Congress provides no direct, stimulus-like aid to the states, but there could be other help on the way. “This is not going to be the last word in jobs bills this year,” said Julie Edwards, a spokesperson for U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore. For instance, one measure being considered in the U.S. Senate could mean another $200 million in Medicaid funds for Oregon. Outgoing Redmond School District Superintendent Vicki Fleming hopes there’s more help on the way. But she says the real problem is a long-term gap between needs and available revenues.

Poincare’s conjecture, elucidated in 1904, is fundamental to topology. It essentially says any three-dimension space without holes in it is a sphere. Many distinguished mathematicians had grappled with the problem. Perelman, then a researcher at the Steklov Institute of Mathematics at St. Petersburg, posted three papers on the Internet sketching out a solution in 2003, and they attracted fevered interest. After a whirlwind tour of the United States, Perelman went back to Russia and gradually stopped answering e-mail messages and even resigned his post at Steklov. Several teams of mathematicians, using Perelman’s papers as a guide, completed a full proof of the conjecture in manuscripts hundreds of pages long, showing that Perelman was right. The Clay Institute plans to hold a conference to celebrate the solution of the Poincare conjecture in Paris on June 8 and 9.

In several states, teenagers who send or receive sexually explicit photographs by cell phone or computer, known as ‘sexting,’ have risked felony child pornography charges. That could change.

Rethinking sex offender laws for teen texting By Tamar Lewin

Marissa Miller, 15, had her scantily dressed image circulated among the cell phones of high school students, resulting in a Pennsylvania court case. Says Amy Adler, a law professor at New York University: “There’s a lot of confusion about how to regulate cell phones and sex and (teenagers).”

New York Times News Service

In Iowa, Jorge Canal is on the sex offenders registry because, at age 18, he was convicted of distributing obscene materials to a minor after he sent a picture of his penis by cell phone to a 14year-old female friend who had requested it. In Florida, Phillip Alpert, then 18, was charged with distributing child pornography and put on the sex offenders registry because after a fight, he sent a photograph of his nude 16-year-old girlfriend by e-mail to dozens of people, including her parents. In most states, teenagers who send or receive sexually explicit photographs by cell phone or computer — known as “sexting” — have risked felony child pornography charges and being listed on a sex offender registry for decades to come. But there is growing consensus among lawyers and legislators that the child pornography laws are too blunt an instrument to deal with an adolescent cyberculture in which all kinds of sexual pictures circulate on sites like MySpace and Facebook. Last year, Nebraska, Utah and Vermont changed their laws to reduce penalties for teenagers who engage in such activities, and this year, according to the National Council on State Legislatures, 14 more states are considering legislation that would treat young people who engage in sexting differently from adult pornographers and sexual predators. And on Wednesday, the first federal appellate opinion in a sexting case recognized that a prosecutor had gone too far in trying to enforce adult moral standards. The opinion upheld a block on a district attorney who threatened to bring child pornography charges against girls whose pictures showing themselves scantily dressed appeared on classmates’ cell phones. “There’s a lot of confusion about how to regulate cell phones and sex and 16-year-olds,” said Amy Adler, a law professor at New York University. “We’re at this cultural shift, not only because of the technology, but because of what’s happening in terms of the representation of teen sexuality as you can see on ‘Gossip Girl.’” There are real risks that sexually explicit pictures, meant to be shared only with a friend or partner, will make their way into wide publication on the Internet and into the hands of sexual predators. Last year, a 14-year-old New Jersey girl was arrested and charged with possession and distribution of child pornography after posting dozens of sexually

Medicare Continued from A1 Rep. David Wu, D-Portland, said the change will make it easier for older Oregonians to find a doctor. That’s been a problem for many in Central Oregon, as many doctors have stopped accepting new Medicare patients. “The shift to a Medicare payment system that is based on highvalue care means we will move away from the volume-based system that has exasperated geographic disparities and led to millions of American seniors being unable to find a doctor,” he said in a statement. Diegel said the increased payments would buoy Central Oregon’s medical sector, including Cascade Healthcare Community, which has seen revenues drop over the past year. “Any attempt at equity or increased payments ... is a move in the positive direction,” Diegel said. The new health care bill provision sets aside $400 million a year in 2011 and 2012 to increase Medicare payments to hospitals in counties receiving the bottom quarter of payment rates. After 2012, President Barack Obama promised to launch a study to change the Medicare payments formula to make it more fair to states like Oregon. The study is not included in the health care bill, however. That study, and the prospect of a long-term fix for Oregon hospitals and doctors, may be the most important part of the agreement, Diegel said. A similar agreement was included in an earlier version of the House health care bill, but wasn’t included in the most recent version until Saturday.

explicit photographs of herself on MySpace. Such cases, lawyers say, are far afield from what the child pornography laws were intended for. So, too, was the case of Canal, which was upheld last year by the Iowa Supreme Court. Canal was 18 when he sent the picture of his erect penis to a 14year-old schoolmate, along with another picture of his face, with the text “I love you” on it. The girl, identified only by her initials, thought she had erased the image, but her parents found it and passed it to the police. As a practical matter, young people are rarely, if ever, jailed under the child pornography laws for the practice. Some of the 14 states are considering legislation that would make sexting a misdemeanor, while others would treat it like juvenile offenses such as truancy or running away. “Many jurisdictions are creating a separate offense for these situations,” said Mary Leary, a law professor at Catholic University. “They’re moving it to family or juvenile court. The more choices available to a prosecutor, including diverting the case entirely from the juvenile justice system, the better.” She and many others believe that some criminal penalties should remain on the books. Jesse Weins, chairman of the criminal justice department at Dakota Wesleyan University, said that because the legal code functioned as a guide to acceptable behavior, “there should be something there, even if oftentimes it doesn’t make sense to prosecute.” But there are those who favor decriminalization. “Generally, this should be an education issue,” said Witold Walczak, legal director of the Pennsylvania American Civil Liberties Union. “No one disputes that sexting can have very bad consequences, and no parent wants kids sending out naked images.

Medicare spent $6,324 per beneficiary in the Bend hospital region, which includes Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties, along with a large part of Eastern Oregon. In comparison, the U.S. average was $8,304 per patient in 2006, the most recent data available, according to the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice. After the deal was announced, DeFazio and Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Canby, who had been undecided, said they would support the health care bill. The bill is scheduled for a vote today. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, has said he plans to vote against the health care bill, citing the hundreds of billions in new taxes it would create, along with a massive increase in government involvement in the health care system. Oregon Association of Hospitals & Health Systems President Andrew Davidson quickly issued a statement in support of the agreement and the health care bill. Davidson said the state receives the fourth-lowest Medicare reimbursement rate in the nation, costing hospitals $1.7 billion annually. “We are deeply grateful to the delegation, the current administration and to Democratic leadership for working with Oregon hospitals on this issue, which is tantamount to reducing the cost shift to commercial insurance and ensuring access to providers,” Davidson wrote. If the bill passes the U.S. House today, it will go back to the U.S. Senate, where votes are expected to begin Wednesday or Thursday. Keith Chu can be reached at 202-662-7456 or at kchu@bendbulletin.com.

But if you’ve got thousands of kids engaging in this, are you going to criminalize all of them?” One recent survey found that about one in five teenagers re-

ported having engaged in sexting. Another found that almost half the boys in coed high schools had seen a picture depicting a female classmate nude. There are two basic scenarios. In one, a teenager shares a nude picture, usually with a romantic partner. In the other, a partner, or more commonly an ex-partner, distributes the image. The Tunkhannock, Pa., case that produced Wednesday’s court

ruling illustrates how complicated such cases can be. Those pictures were discovered by the school authorities, who confiscated the students’ cell phones and turned them over to the district attorney. Walczak, the girls’ lawyer, said he planned to file a separate lawsuit charging that the school search of material on confiscated phones breached students’ privacy. The district attorney told parents of the students involved — both those in the images and those whose phones contained the images — that their children could be prosecuted for child pornography unless they took part in an after-school program. The program, divided by gender, involved random drug tests, probation and classes in which the girls would “gain an understanding of what it means to be a girl in today’s society,” by, among other things, writing essays on

why their actions were wrong. Only three of more than a dozen families refused to join the program — those of two girls, ages 12 and 13, who were pictured wearing bras at a slumber party, and of a third girl who was shown emerging from the shower with a towel wrapped under her breasts. The parents say the photographs were not pornographic, a question no court has yet considered. And there has been no evidence that any of the three girls played a part in circulating the photographs. The parents went to court, claiming that prosecution would amount to retaliation for refusal to join the program. “We need laws that deal with sexting more holistically, based on the facts of a particular situation,” said Weins, who has written a law review article on the subject. “And that’s not how the child pornography laws work.”

Discord, rhetoric mount amid European debt crisis By Anthony Faiola The Washington Post

LONDON — After Greece recklessly spent its way into a debt crisis, potentially leaving German taxpayers to help fund a bailout, lawmakers in Berlin offered a suggestion to their profligate neighbors to the south: If you want to raise cash, why not sell off a few of your islands? That idea came only a few days after the Greeks, furious over earlier German criticism of their spending habits, suggested the Germans could solve the problem by making repara-

Jakarta photographer Ilham Anas has cashed in on his uncanny resemblance to U.S. President Barack Obama. Recently, with reporters in tow, the presidential look-alike toured the school the real Obama attended as a boy.

Looking like Obama pays off in surprising ways for Indonesian By John M. Glionna Los Angeles Times

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Striding purposefully, his smile lighting up a rainy afternoon, Barack Obama appears to have arrived here early to tour an elementary school he attended as a boy. But wait. It’s not him. The U.S. president is still back in Washington shepherding his health care bill toward passage. So who is this guy? He’s Ilham Anas, a 34-year-old teen-magazine photographer who has parlayed a striking resemblance to the American president into his own brand of celebrity — and wealth. Since his sister told him in 2007 that he looked like the then-presidential candidate, Anas’ face and megawatt smile have been seen on Southeast Asian TV and the Internet, pitching over-the-counter medicine and other products. He has also appeared on his nation’s premier television talk show and had a cameo in a movie, all while fielding offers from marketers across Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. Anas is the first to admit it: He’s an impostor, a walking mannequin out of Madame Tussaud’s. But he’ll also tell you this: He’s in incredible demand. “I’ve got so much work I can’t handle it all,” he says. He’s even penned an autobiography, “Because of Obama.” The jacket review says Anas’ resemblance to the president has “turned his life around 180 degrees.” But it hasn’t been easy. When his sister first commented on the resemblance, Anas says, he dismissed her with a wave of his hand. “I was in denial,” he recalls. “I said: ‘Nah. I don’t care.’” Then a colleague at the magazine where he works asked him to pose as Obama wearing a power suit, in front of an American flag. At first he refused. “I told him that I’m a photographer, not an object for the camera,” he says. As soon as he relented, his career took off. The married father of two small children now is rarely home. On a recent day, a horde of reporters followed him on a tour of the elementary school Obama once attended. Anas sat in the classroom where the future president studied. He mugged for the cameras and spoke a few lines in English. The moment he opened his mouth, however, the differences became apparent. “Obama is a baritone,” Anas says. “I’m not. I sound like a little boy.” He is also shorter than the president. But he makes up for that by practicing Obama’s mannerisms. Before public appearances, he says, he spends hours in front of the mirror posing, gesturing, flashing that smile. Otherwise, Anas says, he hasn’t altered his appearance much for the role. He wears his hair just like he did back in high school in Bandung, a few hours’ drive from Jakarta. But he did shape his eyebrows to look more like those of the president. Anas says he used to view his reflection and not like what

he saw. Now he no longer sees an average guy. Now he sees a superstar. Meanwhile, the offers continue to flood in, he says. A film crew in Singapore paid him to walk through a crowded market with “bodyguards” so it could gauge the crowd’s reaction. People stared. They gaped. They asked for his autograph. “One guy in an airport in Malaysia bought me a meal,” he said. Anas, who, like Obama, is a smoker, says he won’t use his resemblance to promote alcohol or cigarettes. He can’t say the same about indigestion pills. “I did a commercial in the Philippines where I posed with a woman who resembles President Gloria Arroyo,” he says. “We have dinner, and she makes me overeat. Then she gives me these pills to make me better. The ad is a hit across the country.” He denies rumors that he’s been offered a job as Obama’s security double when the president visits. The trip, originally slated for this week, has now been postponed until June. In this predominantly Muslim nation, which has seen its share of anti-West terrorist attacks, he has wondered if posing as the American chief executive could prove bad for his health. “I worried that I might be kidnapped,” he says. “But so far that hasn’t happened.”

W   B Flights canceled amid British Airways strike LONDON — British Airways canceled 1,100 flights on Saturday as some cabin crews started a three-day strike in protest over working conditions and pay. Talks between the Unite trade union and British Airways management broke down on Friday afternoon, and tensions between the two sides grew. The strike is expected to last until midnight Monday, and a second strike is scheduled to start March 27. British Airways was trying to keep the disruption to passengers to a minimum by retraining other employees to serve as cabin crew, using larger aircraft, and chartering planes and crews from other airlines. The airline published a revised flight schedule this week that included cancellations of more than 1,000 flights, mainly short-haul ones, which helped to keep confusion at the airports to a minimum on Saturday.

Thousands protest Russian government KALININGRAD, Russia — Thousands of people participated in anti-government rallies across Russia on Saturday, including nearly 3,000 residents of this Baltic province who defied police and staged a boisterous, rain-soaked protest calling on Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to step down. The coordinated demonstrations, which opposition leaders dubbed a “Day of Wrath,” occurred in dozens of cities and towns across 11 time zones, including Mos-

cow, St. Petersburg, Irkutsk and Vladivostok. Though turnout appeared limited, the string of protests hinted at widespread frustration with Russia’s most serious economic downturn in more than a decade. The unauthorized rally in Kaliningrad, the seaport capital of the province of the same name located far from the rest of Russia between Poland and Lithuania, took place despite a concerted effort by the Kremlin and local authorities to prevent it — and opposition leaders’ decision to cancel for fear of police violence.

Chinese official rejects Western democracy BEIJING — A Chinese legislative official has said that China will not adopt Western-style democracy, marking a rare instance in which a member of the government here openly rejects

in Brussels over the naming of high-level diplomats overseas, while EU nations have been unable to reach a key agreement on how — and whether — to save Greece and prop up the hard-hit euro. The frictions in Europe could further pressure global currency and bond markets, hamper expansion of the euro and derail attempts to boost the region’s clout on the world stage. They are also threatening to complicate efforts by Washington to work with the Europeans to solve long-standing problems, such as a massive gap in NATO

Western-style political reforms. The official, Li Fei, said in an interview published Saturday on the Web site of China Daily that “different countries have different election rules and a socialist China won’t follow Western election campaigns.” Li is deputy director of the legislative affairs commission of the standing committee of the National People’s Congress, a rubber-stamp parliament whose annual two-week work session ended March 14. Li told China Daily, an official English-language newspaper, that while some people wanted to expand direct elections, he believed that the priority was to improve on the so-called election system now in place. The Chinese system generally reinforces the rule of the Chinese Communist Party, which has governed the country in an authoritarian manner since 1949, when it won the civil war. Many Western scholars have said elections at local levels have not given voters true alternatives to the Communist Party.

financing, as well as newer ones, like the push to establish global norms for financial regulation in the aftermath of the “great recession.” “The creation and enlargement of the EU was one of Europe’s biggest achievements, but now its inability to speak as one, and its failure to agree on how to tackle its underlying economic and social challenges, is undermining Europe’s standing and potentially leading it into a period of decline,” said Simon Tilford, chief economist at the Center for European Reform, a London-based think tank.

Obama renews offer of Iranian dialogue President Barack Obama delivered his second message to the Iranian people for the festival of Nowruz, which marks the Iranian New Year, releasing a video on Saturday in which he again offered Iran’s leaders engagement with the United States. But he tempered his offer for dialogue with a threat of international sanctions if Tehran did not rein in its nuclear ambitions. “We are working with the international community to hold the Iranian government accountable because they refuse to live up to their international obligations,” Obama said. “But our offer of comprehensive diplomatic contacts and dialogue stands.” — From wire reports

Redmond may shift City Hall to historic school

Washington Week WASHINGTON — The U.S. House is scheduled to take what may be the deciding vote on a $940 billion health care bill today. The vote comes after more than a year of hearings, starts, stops and legislative horsetrading. If the House bill passes, as is expected, it will go back to the U.S. Senate to approve a package of amendments. That effort could take several days, though, depending on potential Republican procedural roadblocks. Here’s how Oregon’s lawmakers voted last week.

By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin

U.S. SENATE • LIMITING EARMARKS Failed 26-70 on Thursday. The motion came in an amendment to a Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill. It would have banned earmarks — money directed to a specific project by one or more lawmakers — during years in which the federal government has a budget deficit. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D ..........No Sen. Ron Wyden, D ...........No

U.S. HOUSE • ALLOWING THE USE OF ‘DEEM AND PASS’ ON HEALTH CARE LEGISLATION Passed 222-203 on Thursday. The vote rejected a Republican motion to prevent Democrats from using what’s been called the “Slaughter strategy,” after Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter, D-N.Y., to pass the health care bill. The maneuver would essentially combine a vote on the rules governing debate on package of amendments to the U.S. Senate health care bill, with a vote on the bill itself. A “yes” vote was to allow the use of deem and pass. Rep. Greg Walden, R .........No Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D....Yes Rep. Peter DeFazio, D ........Yes Rep. Kurt Schrader, D ........Yes Rep. David Wu, D ..............Yes

• CONGRATULATING THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM Passed 279-132 on Wednesday. The same week as the beginning of March Madness, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, offered a motion to congratulate senior guard Greivis Vasquez and coach Gary Williams. Motions like this are commonly passed unanimously. This time, however, most Republican lawmakers joined Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif., who wanted payback for Hoyer’s decision to deny a vote on an earlier resolution congratulating the University of California-Irvine men’s volleyball team. Rep.

The Whites and hundreds of other classic car and hot rod enthusiasts came together Saturday at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center in Redmond for the Central Oregon Rod & Custom Show.

Bend contracts auditor to ensure hotels pay fair share of fees, taxes By Cindy Powers The Bulletin

The city of Bend has hired a firm that specializes in auditing lodging properties to conduct an annual accounting of the franchise fees and room taxes paid by local hotels. The audit, scheduled to begin later this month, is one of several the city conducts each year to ensure that various businesses are paying franchise fees and, if applicable, room taxes in compliance with Bend’s tax code, said City Finance Director Sonia Andrews. An audit of Cascade Natural Gas last year revealed the company mistakenly thought some of its customers were outside city limits, and it did not charge them franchise fees. The company also failed to collect taxes on its

service charge and, combined with the fees not collected from customers residing in the city, paid $1 million in back fees plus interest to the city last fall. Now the city has contracted with California-based MuniServices, which works exclusively with governmental entities and specializes in several auditing areas, including lodging taxes, according to its Web site. The city will pay MuniServices $14,500 for its services, Andrews said. Bend City Manager Eric King said part of the MuniServices audit involves a recently removed section of the tax code that applied to hotels that offered breakfast to guests as part of the room rate. Until the Bend City Council changed the code last fall, hotels that included breakfast as part

of the guest stay could deduct up to $10 per person, per room — up to four people — from the taxable room rate. So a hotel offering a room rate of $100 could deduct as much as $40 from that rate, meaning the city’s 9 percent room tax would be charged only on the remaining $60. “We need to know if they applied this exemption correctly. If it was, then there is no problem,” King said. “What would be problematic is if they, themselves, took the exemption and didn’t pass (the tax savings) along to the customer.” King said not all area hotels serving breakfast as part of the room rate have applied the exemption because it was not widely known about before its removal from the tax code.

The city of Redmond may be on the verge of finding a new home for its City Hall: the historic Evergreen Elementary School building. At the end of this academic year, the Redmond School District will close Evergreen as a school and open a replacement in the southwest section of the city. About $20 million from the bond voters passed in 2008 will pay for the new building. But that move will leave the 30,000-square-foot school empty, and district leaders are concerned that the building, just west of downtown, will sit vacant for an extended time. The district put Evergreen up for sale last year, and it remains on the market for $3.5 million. Though details are vague at this point, a deal would allow the district to sell a property it will soon have no use for and Redmond to open a new City Hall near its downtown, all while saving money. Redmond had originally planned to spend about $8 million on a new City Hall. Though city officials would not disclose many details of the potential deal, City Manager David Brandt said a developer is trying to buy the building, upgrade it and then lease it to the city. Eventually, the city would buy the building. Neither city nor school officials would say how much the developer has offered or who the developer is. No deal is in place yet, Brandt said. “Nothing has been finalized. There are no documents and no agreement. It’s all, at this point, very informal talks,” added Brandt. Negotiations with the developer are ongoing, according to district Chief Operations Officer Doug Snyder. Even though no deal has been reached, this is the closest the district has come to a sale. The district put the school on the market just as the economy was falling into recession, and that has stalled any deals from happening, Snyder said. “This was the first offer,” said Snyder. Redmond had wanted to open a new City Hall in time for its centennial, which is this year. But budget problems forced the city to back off that plan in 2008 and save money in case of emergency. The city had gone as far as having a new City Hall designed. “My heart was sort of set on a new City Hall, but I’ve capitulated,” Mayor George Endicott said. See Redmond / B5

Roseburg teen’s kin hope sign saves lives By Inka Bajandas The (Roseburg) News-Review

ROSEBURG — Four years ago, Dawn Hutchison was awakened by a loud pounding on the front door of her Roseburg home. Her husband, Shane, tried to persuade her to get the door, but Hutchison told him her head hurt. After answering the summons, he returned to the bedroom and told her their daughter, Mandy, had been in a car accident. He then rushed to the scene of the accident. Soon after, several police cars pulled in front of Hutchison’s home, and a number of police officers converged at her front door. They told her she was probably aware of a car accident. Then one of them knelt down in front of her. “I’m sorry. You’ve lost your daughter,” he said. Hutchison asked him for a cigarette, even though she hadn’t smoked in years. She remembers looking up at a grandfather clock in her house. The face of the clock and the numbers were huge, consuming her vision. Everything else that happened that night is a blur, said Hutchison, now a Sutherlin resident. It was Sept. 18, 2006 — the night her daughter Mandy Cochran, 18, was killed in car accident on West Military Avenue. What happened to Hutchison on that night was every parent’s worst nightmare. Because of it, she has made it her mission, along with other relatives and friends of the Roseburg High School graduate, to try to prevent other accidents on the narrow, winding road where Mandy Cochran died. They also want to keep alive the memory of the caring teenager who aspired to be a nurse, and who loved the color pink. The family recently scored a victory in those efforts when the city of Roseburg installed new signs on Military Avenue late last week. “A lot of people don’t go through and fight like this,” said Cochran’s stepfather, Shane

Shane Hutchison and his wife, Dawn, stand with a sign alerting drivers of upcoming curves in Roseburg. The couple’s 18-year-old daughter, Mandy Cochran, was killed in an automobile accident on the narrow, winding road in 2006. Hutchison. “We swore from day one that we wouldn’t give up until something was done.” The two new signs, purchased by the family, have been placed on either end of the road that winds through trees on the side of Mount Nebo. They’ll replace signs that said “narrow, windy road” with wordless ones bearing squiggly lines as symbols. Underneath the warning, another sign says, “In memory of Mandy Renee Cochran 1988-2006.” The road’s narrowness, com-

bined with its steep drop-offs, make it especially dangerous, said Dawn Hutchison. She hopes the signs could save lives by helping to prevent accidents such as the one that killed her daughter. Hutchison admits Cochran and some friends were horsing around and driving too fast on the road on the night of the accident. While no drugs or alcohol were involved, poor judgment led to the teen’s death, her mother said. Cochran, a passenger, was thrown from the car when it went off the road and hit a tree.

Alcatraz is emptied of its last prisoners on this day in 1963 The Associated Press Today is Sunday, March 21, the 80th day of 2010. There are 285 days left in the year. TODAY’S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY On March 21, 1960, about 70 people were killed in Sharpeville, South Africa, when police fired on black protesters; the shooting drew international condemnation. (On this date in 1985, police in Langa, South Africa, opened fire on blacks marching to mark the 25th anniversary of Sharpeville; the reported death toll varies between 29 and 43.) ON THIS DATE In 1685, composer Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Eisenach, Germany. In 1804, the French civil code, or the “Code Napoleon” as it was later called, was adopted. In 1806, Mexican statesman Benito Juarez was born in Oaxaca. In 1907, U.S. Marines arrived in Honduras to protect American lives and interests in the wake of political violence. In 1940, a new government was formed in France by Paul Reynaud, who became prime minister, succeeding Edouard Daladier. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan began a four-day conference in Bermuda. In 1963, the Alcatraz federal prison island in San Francisco Bay was emptied of its last inmates at the order of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. In 1965, more than 3,000 civil rights demonstrators led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. began their march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala. In 1972, the Supreme Court, in Dunn v. Blumstein, ruled that states may not require at least a year’s residency for vot-

TEN YEARS AGO Pope John Paul II began the first official visit by a Roman Catholic pontiff to Israel. A divided Supreme Court ruled the government lacked authority to regulate tobacco as an addictive drug, throwing out the Clinton administration’s main antismoking initiative. FIVE YEARS AGO A high school student on the Red Lake Indian reservation in Minnesota killed five schoolmates, a teacher and an unarmed guard before taking his own life; Jeff Weise had earlier killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s companion. Armed with a new law rushed through Congress and signed by President George W. Bush, the attorney for Terri Schiavo’s parents pleaded with a judge to order the brain-damaged woman’s feeding tube reinserted. (The judge ended up refusing.) Ailing Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist returned to the Supreme Court bench to hear arguments despite his thyroid cancer. Cabaret singer Bobby Short died in New York City at age 80. ONE YEAR AGO The Oakland, Calif., police department saw its deadliest day when parolee Lovelle Mixon shot and killed two motorcycle officers; Mixon killed two SWAT team members while holed up in an apartment before he was killed by other officers.

Molalla driver who attacked bystander faces charges The Associated Press MOLALLA — A Molalla man has been charged with assault after a driver stopped and attacked a homeowner who yelled for him to slow down. Clackamas County sheriff’s deputies said they also charged 35-year-old Brian Scott Maloy with criminal strangulation after a man tending his horses and repairing a fence at his rural home was attacked. Michael Allen told deputies he saw a driver speeding at 80 to 90 mph in front of his house on Friday and yelled at him to warn about curves ahead. Allen said the man slammed on his brakes, backed up and confronted him, and choked him until he was nearly unconscious. The man broke off the attack when a motorcyclist approached. Allen suffered a severe knee injury.

O Jackson County conservation group wins land use fights and earns enemies By Damian Mann (Medford) Mail Tribune

Dawn breaks on downtown Klamath Falls earlier this month to reveal that sidewalks heated by geothermal energy have stayed clear while a park bench, trash receptacle and the street are dusted with snow.

Geothermal power at its most ambitious in Klamath Falls By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

KLAMATH FALLS — When snow falls on this downtown of brick buildings and glass storefronts in Southern Oregon, it piles up everywhere but the sidewalks. It’s the first sign that this timber and ranching town is like few others. A combination of hot rocks and water like those that created Yellowstone’s geysers have been tapped by the city to keep the sidewalks toasty since the early 1990s. They also heat downtown buildings, kettles at a brewpub and greenhouses, and keep the lights on at a college campus. Geothermal wells in this town of 20,000 mark one of the nation’s most ambitious uses of a green energy resource with a tiny carbon footprint, and could serve as a model for a still-fledgling industry that is gaining steam with $338 million in stimulus funds and more than 100 projects nationwide. “We didn’t know it was green. It just made sense,” said City Manager Jeff Ball. Geothermal energy is unknown in much of the country but accounts for 0.5 percent of the nation’s energy production. It can be seen on a snowy day in a handful of Western towns like Klamath Falls. That’s because hot rock is closer to the surface here, and comes with the water needed to bring the energy to the surface. Northern California is home to the world’s largest geothermal power complex. The Geysers, 75 miles north of San Francisco, produces enough electricity for 750,000 homes.

600 wells With more than 600 geothermal wells heating houses, schools and a hospital as well as turning the turbine on a small power plant, Klamath Falls shows what everyday life could be if stimulus grants and venture capitalists turn geothermal energy from a Western curiosity to a gamechanging energy resource. Until now, geothermal energy has been limited by having to find the three essentials ingredients occurring together in one place naturally: hot rock relatively close to the surface, water, and cracks in the rock that serve as a reservoir. Those limitations go away if engineers can tame a technology known as EGS, for Enhanced Geothermal Systems. A 2007 Massachusetts Institute of Technology report estimates that EGS, with support, could be producing 100 gigawatts of electricity — equivalent to 1,000 coal-fired or nuclear power plants — by 2050, and has the potential to generate a large fraction of the nation’s energy needs for centuries to come. “If we are going to try to achieve a transformational change in this country, geothermal should be part of that recipe,” said Jefferson Tester, chairman of the committee that produced the report and professor of sustainable energy at Cornell University. “It’s not treated that way. It’s typically forgotten.” One form of EGS involves drilling thousands of feet down

Nursery manager Jacqueline Friedman stands in a greenhouse heated by geothermal energy at IFA Nurseries in Klamath Falls. A brewpub, a hospital and schools are using the energy in addition to the nursery and sidewalks. to reach hot rock, pumping water down to fracture the rock to create reservoirs, then sending down water that will come back up another well as hot water or steam that can spin a turbine to generate electricity.

Quake concerns The system can be dropped in practically anywhere that hot rocks are close enough to the surface to make drilling economical. The major problem with EGS is the potential to create earthquakes. Pumping water into the ground to open numerous tiny fractures in the rock for a reservoir makes the earth move — what scientists call induced seismicity. Earthquakes stopped an EGS project in the middle of Basel, Switzerland, last year, and an international protocol has been developed for monitoring and mitigating earthquake problems. As long as the wells are not close to major earthquake faults, “it is not damaging, but very upsetting to the community that lives literally on top of it,” said Ernie Majer, a seismologist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, and lead author on the protocol. Federal funding for geothermal started during the 1970s Arab oil embargo, waned when oil prices subsided and essentially stopped when Texas oilman George W. Bush entered the White House, Majer said. With interest growing in energy with a tiny carbon footprint, the Obama administration revived support for geothermal energy. Besides handing out more than $40 million a year from the Department of Energy, it is funding 123 demonstration projects in 38 states with stimulus funds. Projects include home heat pumps, power plants, drilling, rock fracturing, exploration and underground mapping. “The goal of the department is to try to validate that a source of energy could be produced at an adequate price,” said Jacques Beaudry-Losique, deputy assistant secretary for renewable energy. He expects results in two to three years.

MEDFORD — With relatively little fanfare, a new group of Southern Oregon environmental activists has taken the lead in opposing controversial Jackson County planning decisions, earning praise from other environmental groups and condemnation from those who favor more development. Rogue Advocates formed

as a nonprofit organization in 2006, and has worked in both Jackson and Josephine counties against Measure 37, the property rights initiative. More recently, it has been resisting efforts to mine gravel in the Applegate Valley. Rogue Advocates’ main voice is Jimmy MacLeod, 53, a Williams resident who volunteers his time. MacLeod said the organization carefully chooses

the cases it takes and develops arguments that will stand up to legal tests. So far, that strategy has worked. “Mostly, for the stuff we’ve tackled, we’ve been successful either part of it, or the whole enchilada,” MacLeod said. That success has earned Rogue Advocates no friends among those who favor fewer restrictions on property rights and development. Jack Swift,

the lead attorney for Citizens for Constitutional Fairness, acknowledges he has referred to Rogue Advocates as a land use vigilante group. “If you are planning to do something, you have to anticipate this group is going to appear and challenge you,” the Grants Pass resident said. Citizens for Constitutional Fairness formed to battle in the courts for Measure 37 rights.

Slot machines banned in Bend 75 years ago 100 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 20, 1910 OUR EIGHTH ANNIVERSARY (Editorial) With this number The Bulletin starts upon its eighth year of publication. As a newspaper is a semi-public institution, a brief statement of the controls through which this publication has passed may not be deemed out of place on this occasion. When the first number of The Bulletin was issued, Max Lueddeman, of Antelope, was owner, Don Rea, of Madras, editor, and A.H. Kennedy, of Prineville, printer. On the first of the succeeding August, J.M. Lawrence, then U.S. Commissioner at Bend, bought a half interest in the paper, which he conducted from that time until his departure to be receiver of the Roseburg land office, January 1, 1906. There was no change in the ownership of the paper until May 1, 1908, when Mr. Lawrence sold his half interest to Mr. Lueddeman, and immediately, through E.A. Baldwin, the paper passed into the possession of Fred S. Staley, of Portland, who held it until the first of last February, when he sold to Don Steffa. On the first of the present month, the property was purchased by George Palmer Putnam, of New York, who came to Bend last year. With him is associated J.M. Lawrence who resigned his office at Roseburg to return to Bend. From the time Mr. Lawrence went to Roseburg until his return, the paper was conducted by Charles D. Rowe, but it was not owned by residents of Bend. It is now for the first time owned by Bend citizens. ON TO BEND IMMEDIATELY Says John F. Stevens, president of the Oregon Trunk, in an interview last week: “Right-of-way has been purchased from Madras south to Bend, and the company expects shortly to receive bids on this portion of its projected line — 50 miles — and that the work will be completed so that track laying will continue from Madras south without a halt.” As reported in a recent issue of The Bulletin, the work from Madras to Bend is of an exceedingly light character, three months being an ample time allowance for its completion, according to the authoritative statements of engineers familiar with the territory. As the Hill officials announce the present construction well under way and are confident of its completion to Madras by Autumn, the significance of the road’s immediate continuance to Bend is apparent. Putting two and two together, it now seems more of a probability than a possibility that Bend will hear the locomotives before the expiration of next winter, if not before Christmas.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 20, 1935 SLOT MACHINES UNDER OFFICIAL BAN IN BEND Slot machines had again disappeared from restaurants, pool halls and other places in Bend today, and, according to information from official circles, they are not to return, in view of the attorney general’s recent announcement that these coinswallowing devices are illegal — in fact, so illegal that they cannot be legally taxed. Not only have slot machines disappeared from Bend, but punch boards will be history after Saturday, March 23, according to information from the police station. The present disappearance of the slot machines followed a period of activity during which the number of these gambling contrivances more than doubled around town. Pending action in Salem, nothing was done to curb the machines, but when the attorney general ruled that the legislature could not tax the devices because they are illegal, it was known that more tough days were ahead for local owners of the machines. The matter was brought to a head when a pool hall attendant somewhat violently argued with a slot machine player who insisted on using slugs. That altercation found its way into municipal court, legally bringing to the attention of city officials the fact that these

Y E S T E R D AY machines were in use there. There were rumors around town today that the slot machines last midnight were merely temporarily withdrawn from business and placed behind the scenes until the present turmoil blew over. However, from the city offices this morning came a warning that the reappearance of these machines will result in drastic action. TO MAKE ‘BLIND FLYING’ DASH TO HONOLULU In a supreme test of new blind flying equipment, a U.S. Army transport plane is scheduled to fly from Oakland to Hawaii, but not until several more test flights over the Pacific have been made. The plane is guided by a robot pilot and is equipped with new radio compass devices. Eugene Vidal, director of the bureau of aeronautics, said today experiments would continue for several days before the Hawaii flight, and added that “the department is highly pleased with results in experiments for long-distance radio navigation for aircraft over water.”

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending March, 20, 1960 TOP ATTRACTIONS SET FOR ‘NEW’ PAGEANT By Phil F. Brogan Bend’s 1960 Mirror Pond Pageant will be a fete without a blazing arch or animated floats, but it will be a show with top attractions, including a three-day visit by “Miss America.” Pageantarians, comprising the Bend Chamber of Commerce committee in charge of the July fete, made this announcement today after setting definite dates, making work appointments and deciding on events in connection with the river show. The pageant will be on the nights of July 2, 3 and 4. This year, the Fourth of July falls on a Monday. There will be an advance sale of buttons, with 10,000 to be ordered. Swan buttons, bearing the pageant dates, will again be used. Pageantarians have definitely decided to obtain “Dancing Waters” in place of the costly arch and the floats. A contract with the producers will be signed in the immediate future. Tentative plans call for the presentation of major features of the show in the “cove” of the Drake Park shoreline, where the reserved seat sections have been set up in former years. Much of the action will center on a stage to be built on the river. “Miss America” of 1960, Lynda Lee Mead, entered the “Miss America” pageant at Atlantic City as “Miss Mississippi.” As “Miss America,” she was the winner of a $10,000 scholarship. Pageant posters and other literature will feature “Miss America.” If plans materialize, Richard Boone of “Have Gun, Will Travel” fame and members of his cast will be in Bend over the holidays, in connection with the filming of six television pictures in the Deschutes country. If Boone is in Bend at the time, he will head the pet parade. Gottlieb Baer will be pageantarian in charge of Miss America’s various appearances here. He will also be in charge of the merchants’ program, store decorations and will head up arrangements for a hot rod derby. Dick Geser will supervise the barbecue and buckaroo breakfast, and handle concessions and fireworks. Dolph Ellingson will be in charge of the princess court and the coronation ball. Dennis Marvin will head arrangements for entertainment on pageant nights. Eddie Berg, Mike Salo and Oscar Murray will be in charge of the float platform, stages construction and cleanup. Bill Griswold and Ira Moore will help on advertising in the preparation of a brochure. Bob Libby will handle ticket sales.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 20, 1985

Two men who led the Harney County sheriff on a high-speed chase and shot at him Monday were being held in the county jail today on three charges, including attempted murder. Richard Dugan of California and Ronny Tiffey of Oklahoma surrendered to police at a roadblock set up seven miles west of Hines on Monday. According to a Harney County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, the incident began at 3:50 p.m., when the Lakeview office of the Oregon State Police alerted other police agencies to watch for the two men. The pair, riding in a pickup truck that had been stolen in Alturas, Calif., allegedly had fired shots at a house in Valley Falls, just north of Lakeview. At 4:50 p.m., Harney County Sheriff Dave Glerup spotted the suspect vehicle about halfway between Wagontire and Riley on state Highway 395. Glerup, also in a pickup, began pursuing the pair. The two men refused to stop, however, and fired several shots at Glerup. A bullet fragment struck the sheriff and raised a welt on his leg. The two vehicles, traveling at speeds in excess of 80 mph, turned onto U.S. Highway 20 at Riley and headed toward Burns. Glerup radioed for help, and a roadblock was set up on the highway by police from several jurisdictions. When the two suspects reached the roadblock, they stopped the pickup, surrendered and were arrested by Glerup. Police found four firearms in the pickup, three of which were loaded. The spokesman said the two are suspects in the Monday robbery of $400 from a truck driver, who was held up at gunpoint at a rest stop near Alkali Lake in Lake County by the two men. The pair also is suspected of stealing a vehicle in Reno, Nev., and driving it to Alturas. In addition to attempted murder, the two men are charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and first-degree robbery. No bail has been set for the two men, and additional charges are pending, police said. The two were expected to be arraigned today in Harney County Circuit Court.

PORTLAND — Dick Gibson rocked side to side on his running shoes, gazing over the shoulders of other weightlifting competitors and catching a glimpse of the bench. Two nursing assistants helped Arthur Whinston, 85, out of his wheelchair and toward the weight bench, situated front and center in the ballroom of the Shilo Inns airport hotel in Portland. With his arms quivering and a few hundred people shouting encouragement, Whinston lifted the empty bar, pressed and set it down to loud cheers, including Gibson’s. In just a few moments, Gibson, of Springfield, would be taking his seat on that same bench, seeking to set a record for his age and weight class in the event sanctioned by the World Association of Benchers and Deadlifters. But he offered no hint of apprehension, only joy for the accomplishment of a friend who lives in an assisted-living facility. Gibson, also 85, works out regularly at the Oakway Fitness Center in Eugene. He knows he’s a symbol of longevity and vibrancy. He’s OK with that. If more older people see that an 85-year-old guy can pump iron and walk a treadmill and move around with the pain-free ease of somebody decades younger, then great. But it’s clear that physical fitness is only a side benefit for Gibson, a former truck body repairman. It’s the camaraderie of fellow lifters that motivates him to make those regular trips to the gym and occasional competitions. On March 13, though, he happened to be gunning for a record. “When I retired, my wife said, ‘You should be doing something,’” Gibson said, “‘Why don’t you join a club, a spa?’ So I went down and joined Oakway Fitness Center.” That was in 1989. In 1993, he met Don Frosland Sr., now 80, and his son, Don Frosland Jr., now 55. They both were competitive weightlifters, and they showed Gibson what they knew. Both Froslands have retired from the sport because of injuries. “You and your dad talked me into going to that meet in Creswell,” Gibson told Frosland Jr., who served as his spotter and coach at Saturday’s meet. “Your dad got first, and I got second.

But two of his sons, Rick, of Olympia, and Gary, of Eugene, were seated in the audience, watching as their dad walked purposefully toward the bench. The meet organizer, Gus Rethwisch, a one-time competitive lifter who played the role of “Buzzsaw” in the 1987 movie “The Running Man,” with Arnold Schwarzenegger, announced into a microphone that Gibson was up. “He will be going for a world record,” Rethwisch said. The record was 154.3 pounds. Gibson would try 155.3 pounds. With Frosland leading the way to the bench, Gibson marched behind, expressionless. Frosland said earlier that he was confident Gibson could press the record weight. He’d lifted 160

First you need to make sure that the title to the house is properly transferred from your mother’s estate to you and your siblings. That will likely involve a probate. Because the property will be owned by so many people, I suggest that you and your siblings enter into a written agreement which clearly sets forth what your respective rights and obligations are regarding the house. Issues that need to be addressed include how decisions are to be made regarding managing and rental of the house, responsibility for paying taxes, insurance and for necessary repairs, what happens if one of your siblings wants to sell his or her interest and what happens if one of your siblings dies before the house is sold.

pounds earlier in the week. But Gibson had tended to ignore the weight judge’s two commands: “Press,” telling the lifter it was OK to proceed with the lift, and “rack it,” when it was clear the press had been accomplished. Gibson sometimes would begin the press before the command or rack the bar once the lift was completed — which would earn him a disqualification. It was important for Gibson to concentrate on those commands, Frosland said earlier. With Frosland standing over him, Gibson steadily lowered the bar. “Press!” the judge said. Slowly, surely, it went up. “Rack it!” He did — and the ballroom erupted. “A world record, ladies and gentlemen,” Rethwisch said. Moments later, standing in a warm-up area behind the event room, Gibson was typically understated. “Well how about that?!”

I am new to the state of Oregon. I am retired, with very moderate savings. Do I need to pay a lawyer to set up a trust, since I own my home with no mortgage. I don’t want my two children to have to go to any extra bother and tax expense. You do not necessarily need a will or trust for your property to pass to your children upon your death. If you have neither, the intestate statutes for the state of Oregon will determine who will receive your assets after your death. If you are not married, the intestate statutes indicate your estate will be distributed to your children. Your children will likely have to go through probate to inherit your home. Probate is the legal process to have the title on your home transferred to your heirs after your death. By having a revocable trust established while you are alive, you can save your children the time and expense associated with a probate because the assets in your trust will generally pass to the children after your death without the need for a probate.

Sid Fleischman, well-known writer for kids Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES — Sid Fleischman was a successful suspense novelist and screenwriter, whose credits included the screenplay for his novel “Blood Alley,” when he decided to write a book that his young children could read so they would understand just what it was he did at home all day. “I seem to have written a children’s book,” Fleischman wrote to his agent in New York. “If you’re not interested, just drop it in the wastebasket.” The 1962 lighthearted tale of an Old West traveling magician and his family, “Mr. Mysterious & Company,” sold to the first publishing house that read it, launching Fleischman into a long and much-honored career as a children’s book author. Fleischman, whose book “The Whipping Boy” earned him the prestigious Newbery Medal in 1987, died of cancer Wednesday at his home in Santa Monica, the day after his 90th birthday, said his son, Paul. “Sid was a national treasure in the field of children’s books,” said Lin Oliver, a children’s book author and executive director of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. “It really is a monumental loss for the field.”

Oct. 6, 1930 - Mar. 14, 2010

Continued from B1 Since putting the property up for sale, district staff have said they want to keep the building a public space. That is a major benefit of moving City Hall into the school, Endicott said. “It would save a Redmond icon,” Endicott said. “The nice thing about this deal is that it would turn (Evergreen) into another public use.” There are financial benefits, too, Brandt said. Redmond would need less cash upfront to fund a new building. Also,

Richard "Dick" Charles Mitchell, 79 years old, of Bend, Oregon, passed away on March 14, 2010. Born Oct. 6, 1930 in Denver, Colorado, to Thomas and Ina Mitchell, he had two brothers, Donald and Roger, and one sister, Helen. He attended Richard ‘Dick’ high school Mitchell in Allentown, Pennsylvania, then enrolled in the labor relations program at Cornell University and played on the school football team. Restless, in 1952 he left Cornell, joined the United States Air Force, and began flight training. During his twelve years of military service he became a flight leader, deployed in support of the Korean conflict, attained the rank of Major, and met and married the love of his life, Aud. Following his military service, Dick joined United Airlines and flew for over 30 years before retiring in 1990. Throughout the years, Dick could be found backpacking with his children, fishing a backwoods stream, hunting over his bird dogs, or marveling at his good fortune to have a wife he so adored. Dick is survived by his wife, the former Aud Rundhovde of Bergen, Norway, three sons, Mark, Scott, and Todd, two daughters, Nina and Mona, and 10 grandchildren. Quick to smile, a dedicated family man, and a loyal friend; remembrances may be made to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. Dick, you are cleared for takeoff ... have a safe trip.

As Interior secretary, Udall was a guardian of wild places By Matt Schudel The Washington Post

Stewart Udall, who, as secretary of the interior in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations launched a series of far-reaching conservation reforms that made him one of the most significant figures in protecting America’s natural environment, died Saturday at his home in Santa Fe, N.M. He was 90 and had complications from a recent fall. Udall had served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat from Arizona when President John Kennedy tapped him for the top job at the Interior Department. Udall initiated the first White House conference on conservation since the administration of Theodore Roosevelt and stated his credo at the beginning of his tenure: “Nature will take precedence over the needs of the modern man.” He brought conservation and environmental concerns into the national consciousness, and was the guiding force behind landmark legislation that preserved millions of acres of land, expanded the national park system, and protected water and land from pollution. Despite having a testy relationship with President Lyndon Johnson, Udall remained in the cabinet after Kennedy’s assassination in 1963 and made concern for the environment a key part of Johnson’s Great Society. He helped secure passage of the Wilderness Act of 1964 (which now protects some 400 million acres of land in 44 states), as well as the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act (1965), the Water Quality Act (1965), the Solid Waste Disposal Act (1965), the Endangered Species Preservation Act (1966), the National Historic Preservation Act (1966) and the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act (1968).

because the new City Hall was going to sit where the existing City Hall does, Redmond had planned on renting temporary office space. If the Evergreen deal happens, city staff could instead move directly into permanent offices, Brandt said. But, until a deal is finalized, he said it was unclear just how much money the city could save. “I’m very hopeful,” Brandt added. “I think it’d be a great thing for the community if we can pull it off.” Patrick Cliff can be reached at 541-633-2161 or at pcliff@bendbulletin.com.

Audit Continued from B1 So auditors will determine which properties applied the exemption and then, based on records of how many guests stayed at those hotels, determine if it was used legitimately. “If they didn’t even know about this exemption, then that’s one thing, but if somebody took advantage of the loophole and kept the money, then that is a problem,” King said. Not all hotel properties in the city will be audited, Andrews said. “Some hotels, because of their size, like Shilo or Riverhouse, they end up being picked every year,” Andrews said. “But the little guys may not get picked. They may not hear from us for three or four or five years.” Andrews said some properties are selected at random, and others are chosen because auditors see accounting irregularities or a significant increase or decrease in revenues. She said past audits have

“Some hotels, because of their size, like Shilo or Riverhouse, they end up being (audited) every year. But the little guys may not get picked. They may not hear from us for three or four or five years.” — Sonia Andrews, Bend city finance director yielded mixed results, with some properties collecting too much tax and others collecting too little. “But they shouldn’t be surprised (by the audit) because it’s what we do every year,” Andrews said.

On Sunday, John went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was 94 years old. John was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He was born in Sylvester, Texas to Robert Lester McKinzie and Sarah Parsons McKinzie. He was the firstborn child and later had two sisters, Mildred and Correne, and a step-brother, Harrel Wayne. John joined the Navy at seventeen years old. He enlisted as a sailor in San Diego, CA and his first assignment was aboard the USS Wright. Later, John attended air traffic control school and parachute material training to sharpen his skills working with aviation on aircraft carriers. He became commissioned as a Chief Warrant Officer. During his Navy career, he served in World War II and the Korean War, and was on the carriers USS Essex and USS Lexington. John married Alice Marie Cooper, the love of his life on her birthday, February 16, 1944. They met while he was the Leading Chief of the Navy Base at Watsonville, California and she was working as a telephone operator. They made many moves together during his Navy career and also had long separations while he would be out at sea. John retired after 22 years of service to his country in 1956. Upon retirement, John, Alice and their daughter, Susan, settled in San Jose, California. John had a second long term career at John Middleton Tobacco Company from 1965 to his retirement in the late 1980’s, and then became a part-time consultant for them. He sold pipe tobacco. When he first started, his territory was only California but he became so successful his area was expanded across all the Western States and Hawaii. John Middleton Company was more than just an employer to John. They were a family-owned company, who truly cared about their people, and he became good friends with the Middletons and others he worked with. Upon his retirement, they gave him his company car. In 1984, John and Alice moved from San Jose to Bend, Oregon. They loved leaving the city life and settling into a beautiful home they called “the Blue.” which was out of town, peaceful, and they couldn’t even see their neighbors. When John completely retired from Middleton, he became a volunteer. He worked in the elementary school helping young children learn to read. He also volunteered at St. Charles Medical Center, giving tours to the school children who visited. John really had a rapport with kids, and they just loved the way he would relate to them, both in a serious way by trying to educate them, but also with his silliness and warmth. John also visited a home bound, senior gentleman to provide companionship. In 2003, John and Alice moved to Olympia, WA to be near their granddaughter, Alicia, and her family. John and Alice have always had a very special relationship with Alicia, who called them Pow Pow and Mau Mau. They bought a house in the same neighborhood and this time together was truly a blessing for both families. John was very engaging and had many friends throughout his life. He and Alice loved to entertain and have parties. John particularly liked to do a stand-up comedy routine and Alice would always participate in the skits. John was very sentimental and romantic as well and wrote excellent poetry. He has written 100’s of poems throughout his life commemorating many occasions. John recently completed a short story of his Navy experience, which he began writing forty years ago. John and Alice loved to travel. They made several trips to Europe and also went to Asia, the Panama Canal, Alaska, Mexico, Canada, and Hawaii (many times). John’s other favorite hobby was photography, both stills and movie making. He made many movies of their travel vacations as well as family movies and funny parodies reminiscent of Laugh-In. The whole family was part of the act. John is predeceased by his parents; his sister, Mildred; and his step-brother, Harrel Wayne. Surviving relatives include his wife, Alice McKinzie; daughter, Susan Knaver; granddaughter, Alicia Liston (Bob); great-grandchildren, Andrew and Shelby; granddaughter, Nicole Erdman (Rich), great-grandchildren, Randall and Julianne; daughter, Sharon Pigo; granddaughter, Kathie Maistead; granddaughter, Lynell Seabold (Joe); great-grandchildren, Christopher Malovic, Corey Malovic, and Rachael Malovic; granddaughter, Laurie Gentry (Jeremy), great-granddaughter, Hope; sister, Correne; niece, Linda Pinkston; nephew, Dee Wilson (Judy); and other family members.

Besieged by water, tribe seeks 37 acres of national park By Lynda V. Mapes

Ernest Penn, the Hoh Tribe’s fish and wildlife officer, launches his boat on the Hoh River. The river floods nearly every winter, steadily washing away chunks of the reservation.

The Seattle Times

HOH RESERVATION, Wash. — It chews, it gnaws and jumps around, avulsing in a tantrum of energy to new channels, taking anything in its way right along with it. Just ask members of the Hoh Tribe: The river that carries their name is shoving them right out of their reservation. The Hoh are a tiny tribe of fewer than 300 members, with an even smaller reservation — only a mile square when it was created in 1893. And the reservation is besieged by water from three directions: Storm surges barrel in from the Pacific. The river floods nearly every winter. And then there’s the torrential rain: The Hoh live in one of the rainiest places in the lower 48. The tribe’s community center and many members’ homes on the reservation are encircled by sandbags to hold back the water that is too often at their doors. Some homes have even been abandoned. As chunks of their reservation wash away, the Hoh have turned to Congress for help, seeking legislation to deed a chunk of Olympic National Park to the tribe to move the remote, isolated reservation to higher ground. Most usable land on the reservation is within the 100-year flood plain of the river, making economic development even harder for this tribe battered by high unemployment and poverty. The tribe has worked for several years to acquire a safe

homeland for its people and a viable land base for economic development. The tribe has purchased about 260 acres to move some of its reservation out of the flood zone, and has taken title to 160 acres transferred to the tribe from the state Department of Natural Resources. The tribe now is seeking 37 acres of national park land, to be deeded into trust as part of its reservation, through an act of Congress. While only a small piece of land, it is crucial to the Hoh because it would connect the tribe’s existing parcels into a contiguous swath of usable land. The tribe has plans for a new future on that land, from building housing for its people, to creating a publicly accessible trail from Highway 101 to the beach. The bill that would transfer the parkland to the tribe would

prohibit logging or hunting on the parcel, today in secondgrowth forest and an important wildlife corridor. The tribe also would be prohibited from developing a casino on the property. Written in collaboration between the tribe and the National Park Service, the bill is sponsored in the House by

Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Wash., and co-sponsored in the Senate by Democratic Washington Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. The measure was introduced more than a year ago, but the tribe still is waiting for approval of the legislation — and nervously waiting out another winter flood season.

The Hoh River moves a lot of water: more than 50 times the flow of the Green River in the Seattle area. To many tribal members, the Hoh is not the river they knew growing up. It floods more often and more violently, partly a result of various government agencies hardening river banks off the reservation for erosion control, and timber companies cutting the uplands, tribal members say.

“It’s not the river,” said Mary Leitka, a tribal elder. “It’s because of the things we human beings have done that have changed it.” Leitka came to the Hoh in the 1950s, when there was no road to the reservation, no running water and no electricity. Tribal members depended on the river for everything from the water they drank to the fish they ate, even transportation: Leitka used to take a canoe to get to school. “It was our life,” she said of the Hoh.

hey say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But diamonds can also be a boy’s best friend, especially if that boy is a lifelong baseball fan like me.

I grew up in an era when Hank Aaron and Ted Williams were household names. I was watching in my grade-school classroom when Pittsburgh’s Bill Mazeroski hit the home run that won the 1960 World Series. A year later, my young ear was glued to the radio as Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth’s single-season homer record. Beginning in my teens, I had the opportunity to cheer, in person, many of the greatest players of the mid-to-late 20th century: Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Reggie Jackson, Nolan Ryan and Cal Ripken Jr., to name a few. But until a couple of weeks ago, I had never been to Major League Baseball’s spring training. For the uninitiated, spring training comprises the six weeks before the start of the regular baseball season. It is a time when veteran players get in shape for the almost-daily grind of 162 games — the season runs from April through September (followed by a month of playoffs culminating in the World Series) — and when unproven rookies can try to prove that they belong on major league rosters. But spring training is much more than that. March is a month when fans can develop relationships, however fleeting, with the players. Smaller stadiums en-

NORTHWEST TR AVE L In 2 weeks: Roseburg and the Umpqua Valley able Everyman to chat behind the dugout with his heroes and to get autographs that security details wouldn’t permit in large urban venues. Fans can appreciate the hitting and fielding and pitching feats for what they are, because there’s no pressure to win, and the players are relaxed and smiling. There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball. Half play their March baseball in Florida’s “Grapefruit League”; the other 15 compete in Arizona’s “Cactus League.” Teams have been training in Florida since the World War I era, and in Arizona since the years after World War II. My visit was a brief one. But it was enough to allow me to explore leading Phoenix-area tourist attractions each morning before a game, and to check out some dining spots in the evenings.

Last spring, Greg Rubin answered an open-casting call for a show seeking a host for a new outdoor series to air on Comcast SportsNet. “I went up (to Portland) under the assumption it would be a little different than what it was,” the 33-year-old Bend skier and mountain bike guide told The Bulletin by phone Wednesday. Upon arrival, he got a dose of reality TV. “I thought I was going to audition for an outdoor TV host spot. And then come to find out it was more of a competition,” he says. “I kept doing well, so I stayed on.” The objective on “WANTED: Adventure Host” is to participate in “grueling outdoor challenges,” as press materials call the competitions. The winner lands a spot hosting on Comcast SportsNet’s new Northwest outdoor adventure show. That show doesn’t have a name yet, despite the fact that it’s set to begin filming after the final episode of “WANTED” airs May 3. The show was filmed largely in September in Portland and Central Oregon. Rubin can’t divulge just how well he did in the competition. For that, you’ll need to tune in to Comcast SportsNet on Monday at 8 p.m. on BendBroadband channels 40 and 640. The series’ nine one-hour episodes began airing March 1. But starting with Monday’s show, the fun moves to Central Oregon, where Rubin goes up against competitors from around Oregon and Washington. See Rubin / C7

Man travels incommunicado and causes wife frustration

S ION

Life on TV: ‘Big,’ ‘Biggest’ and ‘Bad’ By Chuck Barney

“Survivor: Heroes vs. Villians” 8 p.m. Wednesday, CBS Due to the NCAA Basketball Tournament, “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” moves to a special night. And it sounds like a special kind of episode with its own brand of March madness — a rare double elimination.

Contra Costa Times

Dear Abby: I have been married for 12 years to a man who is an excellent provider, but not a loving husband. He works out of town every week and comes home on weekends. When he’s away, he ignores my phone calls and won’t answer any texts. If I do get him on the phone, he picks a fight with me for whatever reason — maybe I breathed too hard on the phone — and that’s enough for him not to answer anymore that week. We have three children, and he doesn’t even communicate with them. This has been going on for a few years. I love him, but I feel his attitude is belittling. It has reached the point that I’m afraid to say anything. I’m a loving wife and mother, and I feel I should be respected and treated like a wife and not a weekend fling. Please give me some advice as to what I should do. I’m at a loss for words. — Distraught in Texas Dear Distraught: Your husband appears to suffer from selective amnesia. When he’s out of town, he “forgets” that he’s married. It is in the best interests of you and your children to figure out what happened “a few years ago” that caused such a radical change in his behavior. You are right that you are not being treated the way a wife should be. That’s why you should consider hiring a private detective to find out what’s been going on. I am sure that once you understand, you will no longer be at a loss for words. Dear Abby: My uncle “Paul” died two weeks ago after a long illness. He and his daughter, “Nina,” had a difficult relationship, and after an argument eight years ago she cut off all communication with him. Uncle Paul developed the disease that led to his death after the estrangement. Nina’s brothers and other family members begged her to relent many times — to no avail. It was extremely painful for everyone. When Nina saw her father’s

DEAR ABBY obituary in the newspaper, she decided to attend the funeral. Her brothers and Aunt “Joan” sent a message telling her that her attendance would be hurtful and asking her to stay away. She came anyway — along with her husband, children, their spouses and babies my uncle — and Aunt Joan — had never seen. The rest of the family managed to shield Aunt Joan from them during the service, but Nina’s presence was very upsetting. Am I wrong in thinking she should have stayed away? — Grieving Cousin in Northern California Dear Grieving: Funerals are intended to comfort the living as well as honor the dead. By coming and bringing her entire family after being asked to stay away, Nina did neither and instead poured salt in the wounds. No, you’re not wrong, and the matter was handled properly — without creating a scene. Dear Abby: I find the “penny” stories I see in your column to be both amusing and interesting. Now I have one for you. I was on a bus trip with our church group when I saw a penny on the floor. I picked it up and offered it to an older woman with the comment, “A penny for your thoughts.” Her retort was, “You would be wanting change?” Her response caught me off guard, and gave everyone a laugh. Keep up the good work, Abby. — F.R.C. from Greenville, S.C. Dear F.R.C.: It gave me a laugh, too. Pennies may be worth less than they used to, but a smile can be worth its weight in gold. 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.

“Life” 8 tonight, Discovery Channel If you loved the eye-boggling documentary series “Planet Earth,” get ready for more “wow” moments from the same producing team. Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, this spectacular 11-part extravaganza travels the globe to capture a variety of animal behavior in stunning, up-close and crystal-clear style. Among the facts of “Life”: Crews spent more than 3,000 days in 52 countries while using state-of-theart filming techniques to create a visual masterpiece the whole family can enjoy. Just a quick warning: “Life” can get ugly at times. In one sequence, three cheetahs gang up to take down an ill-fated ostrich. So much for creature comforts. “Breaking Bad” 10 tonight, AMC They’re cooking up big trouble for Walt White (Bryan Cranston) as “Breaking Bad” returns for its highly anticipated third season. Walt’s wife, Skyler (Anna Gunn), is about to learn that he’s a drug dealer — and that’s there’s a meth to his madness. “Big Life” 10 tonight, A&E “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life” is about so much more than her ongoing battle of the bulge. The unscripted series also follows the former “Cheers” star as she looks for love, produces a feature film and tries to raise two well-adjusted teens in the Hollywood spotlight. Good luck with that. “Dancing With the Stars” 8 p.m. Monday, ABC Break out the sequins, it’s time to get our ballroom freak on. “Dancing With the Stars” is back with its crazi-

Among the happy hoofers: Kate Gosselin, Shannen Doherty, Pamela Anderson, 80year-old former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, “Bachelor” hunk Jake Pavelka and Olympic figureskating champ Evan Lysacek. We predict ratings gold. “Nurse Jackie” 10 p.m. Monday, Showtime Edie Falco returns for Season 2 of “Nurse Jackie,” and producers say our troubled caregiver must

“deal with the consequences of her actions.” Does that mean she’s going to quit popping pills and cheating on her husband? Don’t count on it. “The Biggest Loser” 8 p.m. Tuesday, NBC On “The Biggest Loser,” the good news is that the contestants are allowed to leave the ranch for a much-welcome home visit. The bad news? At home, plenty of temptations await.

“Grey’s Anatomy” 9 p.m. Thursday, ABC On “Grey’s Anatomy,” Teddy (Kim Raver) asks Hunt (Kevin McKidd) for help when one of her patients wants to end her life.

CARRIE

Carrie is a sweet 7 year old kitty in search of her forever home. She was brought to the shelter as a stray and was sadly never reclaimed by an owner.

Lily Tomlin’s comedy spans decades with timeless wit By John Wenzel The Denver Post

It’s great being Lily Tomlin. At least that’s how it seems from the outside. The actress, comedian, producer and writer is a onewoman culture machine, spanning decades and genres with her trademark wit and attention to character detail. From the groundbreaking ’60s-’70s TV comedy “Rowan & Martin’s Lily Tomlin Laugh-In” to more recent roles in “I (Heart) Huckabees” and “Desperate Housewives,” she’s been a constant in stage and screen culture. She’s won Tonys, Emmys and even a Grammy. In other words, been there, done that. But here’s a secret: Being Lily Tomlin means something different from year to year. And when you’re talking about a four-decade career, that’s a lot of meanings. “So much of what I do is character-based, and there’s such a variety of humanity speaking,” said Tomlin. Her shows are billed as “A Classic Evening of Lily Tomlin” and they are “more informal and interactive and depend on how demonstrative the audience is. It’s not me just speaking or getting on a rant!” Tomlin likes to revisit iconic characters from her career — such as nasal-voiced phone operator Ernestine; the precocious 5-year-old Edith Ann; the Lily Tomlin of one-woman Broadway shows such as “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe”; and nearly everything in between. But she also talks in her own voice about current events and takes questions from the audience. “I’m fortunate to have this kind of history of affectionate response from fans,” said Tomlin, 70. “I remember when I would do

‘The Merv Griffin Show’ back in mid-’60s in New York. I’d be on the street the next day after a show and a cabbie would say, ‘Hey, you’re funny!’ That was like being on the cover of Time magazine.” (Which, incidentally, she later was.) Characters and comedy were an outlet during Tomlin’s childhood. Growing up in an allblack housing project in innercity Detroit, Tomlin imitated the voices and body language of family, friends and neighbors. In the summer, she stayed on a Kentucky farm with her parents’ family. “I truly had a virtual feast of people,” she said. “You see them when they’re fantastic and noble and giving, and when they’re cruel and narrow and spiteful, and when they’re sad and funny. People pretty much operate on the same continuum, up and down, back and forth, but at some point they’ve touched you.” Tomlin honed her chops in theater and stand-up comedy before breaking through to TV in the mid-1960s, which led to her legendary “Laugh-In” characters. An Oscar-nominated role in the 1975 Robert Altman film “Nashville” and several stand-up albums positioned her as an allaround talent, leading to more roles in film and TV, as well as numerous one-woman stage shows. In typically modest fashion, Tomlin defers to her creations — a class of varied, memorable characters who have taken on lives of their own. “If people don’t like me incredibly, they probably love one of those characters,” she said. “Because they’re characters, it creates more of a multicolored tapestry.” Treating all Foot Conditions 541.383.3668 www.optimafootandankle.com Bend | Redmond | Prineville

Baseball Continued from C1

Tuesday, March 9 I had heard a lot about the Heard. Downtown Phoenix’s marvelous museum of Native American culture, the Heard Museum has been an integral part of the Arizona arts scene since 1929. That was when Dwight and Maie Heard began displaying their collection of Southwest Indian art and artifacts in the Spanish-style home they built around an open courtyard. Over the years, the Heard has expanded several times. Its most famous collection remains that of colorful Hopi katsina (or kachina) dolls. Hundreds are on display, each one different from the next. They are animals and clowns, warriors and fertility icons, each one carved from a cottonwood root and painted to represent a figure from Hopi mythology. Through January 2011, the museum is supplementing its regular katsina exhibit with a secondary show called “100 Years of Carving,” detailing the evolution of this art form through the 20th century. And there’s much more to the Heard Museum than katsinas. Indeed, 21 different federally recognized tribes make their homes in Arizona, and this museum pays tribute to each of them with remarkable permanent exhibits of native basketry, pottery, jewelry, weaving and much more. And there are continuing special exhibits, including (through May 30) a presentation of the art and sculpture of renowned Apache artist Allan Houser (1914-94). “In my work, I am striving for this dignity, this goodness that is man,” Houser told the Phoenix Gazette in 1981. “I hope I am getting it across. If I am, then I am doing what I have always wanted.” My favorite team, the Seattle Mariners, shares a spring-training facility with the San Diego Padres in Peoria, a northwest Phoenix suburb. Besides the main Peoria Stadium, which seats 11,300 fans (Seattle’s Safeco Field accommodates more than 47,000), the 145-acre complex has a half-dozen major leaguesize practice fields and state-ofthe-art training facilities. I had always envisioned spring baseball in Arizona as being played under warm, sunny skies. That was not the case on this first afternoon, as the Mariners and Cleveland Indians prepared for a 1 p.m. game. It had rained in the morning and dark clouds hung overhead. The weather was cool and blustery; tarps covered the pitcher’s mound and the infield dirt. By the fifth inning of the game, the sun had broken through. I didn’t see another drop of rain in Arizona. Ken Griffey Jr., beginning what may be the final year of a Hall of Fame career, got a hit. A couple of younger players played outstanding games. Although Cleveland scored more runs on this particular day, smiles still ruled the Seattle side of the field. From the fans’ standpoint, the Peoria Sports Complex has a great location. It’s directly across North 83rd Avenue from the Arrowhead Entertainment District, which boasts five hotels, 20 restaurants and a pair of theater complexes. That makes it a great place to talk with other baseball fans and, occasionally, a player or two after the games. I had my postgame dinner at Lis Doon Varna, as authentic an Irish pub as one is likely to find in the desert Southwest. I was a week too soon for St. Patrick’s Day, which promised to be quite an event here. But the Guinness and beef pie warmed me after a chilly day at the stadium, and I met a couple of other Seattle fans eager to converse about their team’s prospects for the upcoming baseball season.

The six-decade history of the Cactus League is the subject of an exhibit at the Arizona Museum for Youth in downtown Mesa. The multimedia display, which features a wide range of baseball memorabilia, appeals to children and adults alike. LEFT: A Chicago Cubs fan at Mesa’s Hohokam Park displays a baseball autographed by several players in the Cubs organization. This stadium has been the spring home for the Chicago team since 1952, when owner Philip Wrigley moved it to the desert from California’s Catalina Island.

A 15-year-old Chicago Cubs fan leads spectators in her rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch in a game at Mesa’s Hohokam Park. The number of teams practicing in Arizona has more than doubled since 1994.

Robert Brenton, president of Arizona’s Cactus League, is all smiles during a spring-training game between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants. Brenton said the 15 major-league teams with facilities in Arizona pump millions of dollars into the state’s economy each year.

Wednesday, March 10 The impressive Desert Botanical Garden in southeast Phoenix is a 50-acre preserve with trails that wind past lofty saguaro cacti, where Gila woodpeckers and cactus wrens hollow out homes. Here are spiny ocatillo and shimmering cholla, brightly blossoming yucca, prickly pear and barrel cactus. In all, the park features 1,350 different species of cactus, as well as other succulents, wildflowers and arid-climate shrubbery from around the world. This is a sculpture garden as well. Master glass artist Dale Chihuly’s “Desert Towers” greet new arrivals at the entrance gate. Allan Houser works are strategically located through the park. Docent-led tours, offered three times daily, describe the plants, animals and man-made additions to the garden. From the Desert Garden, I traveled to Mesa, a southeast Phoenix suburb, and to the Arizona Museum for Youth. An exhibit called “Play Ball! The Cac-

tus League Experience” had just opened, and I found that it was designed at least as much for adults as for children. From baseball cards to autographed bats, balls and jerseys, the multimedia display rekindled memories of 60 years of Arizona baseball. The man who made the exhibit possible is Robert Brenton, who wears multiple hats. Not only is Brenton president of the Cactus League, he’s also president of the Mesa Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the self-proclaimed “Big Ho” of Mesa’s Hohokam Park, spring home of the Chicago Cubs. “Mesa and baseball history have been closely entwined for a long time,” Brenton told me, as we sat together to watch the Cubs play the San Francisco Giants. His father, he said, had been instrumental in bringing the Chicago team to the desert in 1952, and his earliest toddler memories took place at the ballpark. “This is a great thing that happens each spring throughout the Phoenix area,” Brenton said. “We

had seven teams here in 1994. We have 15 today. (Two of those teams — the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies — are in Tucson, about two hours southeast of Phoenix.) “What most people don’t know is that major-league players are here 11 months a year. The teams have their tryouts here. They have rehabilitation facilities here for players on the mend. They conduct their amateur draft from here. They bring millions of dollars into our economy.” As we chatted, Giants’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit a line-drive grand-slam home run into the right-field stands off Cubs’ ace Carlos Zambrano. And San Francisco walked away with a 5-1 victory. But Zambrano still didn’t hesitate to sign autographs for fans waiting outside the Chicago locker room when the game ended. I had a marvelous steak dinner, a peppercorn filet, at Donovan’s Steak & Chop House in east Phoenix. Many of the Cubs, I was told, would be dining at Don and Charlie’s, near downtown Scottsdale. I dropped by for an after-dinner drink only to discover it closes at 9:30 p.m. A collection of signed baseballs was on display in the main entrance, and photos of decades of baseball stars hung on the walls.

Touch of Class Tours

Thursday, March 11 It’s not widely known that architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) built one of his acknowledged masterpieces in Scottsdale, the upscale city that flanks Phoenix on its east side. Wright began constructing Taliesin West as his winter home, studio and architectural campus in 1937, and continued to expand upon it until his death at the age of 91. Wright was famed for his ability to integrate indoor and outdoor spaces into a single unit. I joined a 90-minute tour that took me through terraces and walkways that tie the rambling single-story home to the Sonoran Desert landscape surrounding it. Wright even called his living room, with its low ceiling and wall of windows, the “garden room.” There is no excuse for any architectural buff who may be in the Phoenix area to miss this tour. Wright was the greatest architect of his generation, and this home displays his genius to the fullest extent. That afternoon, the Mariners ran away from the Giants with a 6-2 victory at Scottsdale Stadium. I sat with friends on a margarita porch in the right-field stands, next to the broad centerfield grass where festive families spread their picnic lunches. The temperature was near 80, and I was glad I had sunscreen. It was ArtWalk that night in the Scottsdale Arts District, centered upon a three-block stretch of Main Street. Virtually every storefront was home to a highpriced art gallery, featuring the work of world-class artists. My favorite was a quirky shop called Femmes Fatales & Fantasies; it specialized in vintage movie posters and other film memorabilia. Downtown Scottsdale has pumped $3.3 billion — yes, that’s with a “B” — into commercial development. Scottsdale Fashion Square is the largest shopping mall in the Southwest. The new Scottsdale Waterfront and SouthBridge projects are located on either side of a canal system that dates from the city’s founding. The performing arts center has been fully renovated. It’s no surprise that restaurants and nightclubs are legion in this part of the city. In my short visit, I found two worth recommending. As I entered the Saddle Ranch Chop House, a young woman was performing contortions astride a mechanical bull, much to the delight of spec-

The charge for a similar trip to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix aboard Delta Airlines, with a single change of flight in Salt Lake City, is not significantly more. Once you arrive, you’ll want a rental car. As it takes a good hour and a half to drive from one end of the metropolis to the other, from Mesa to Surprise, a vehicle is essential to any Phoenix-area visitor. I was quoted a price of $352 from Alamo for just four days. So I drove, even though it takes two full days to cover the 1,100-odd miles from Bend to central Arizona. I slept and ate inexpensively both southbound and northbound. And upon arrival, I stayed with my cousin, who lives in Phoenix’s Western suburbs. Only on my final night, when I was exploring Scottsdale, did I pay for a motel room, and it was at Motel 6. But many resorts offer excellent spring-training packages. Kimpton’s FireSky Resort & Spa

Fun with words? Just get in line By Ed Hayes The Orlando Sentinel

You gotta draw the line. You’ve heard that line before. OK, taking it from there — it can become a game, say, for travelers. Not simply to entertain, or kill time. Rather, to keep the brain animated, in pursuit of elegance. Listen. There’s nothing wrong simply sitting by the window in an automobile, bus or train, relaxing, mile after mile, soaking up classy countryside. Often, though, one needs a break from reading or daydreaming. Word game, anyone? This diversion requires only two players. From the top, then, contestants pick a word. In turn, each person comes up with a sentence utilizing the same salient word, as long as it carries a different meaning. Example? Well, look no fur-

ther. Return with me now to the first line atop this column. Obviously the key word is “line.” OK, ready to draw the line? I’ll start the ball rolling: “During WWII, I was sent behind enemy lines.” From there the script could progress along the following lines. “My cousin Jackie was in the long gray line. Snafus, line up. You’re being sent to the front line. Tsk-tsk, Humphrey forgot his line. Enos Slaughter hit line drives. Victoria’s Secret manufactures a fine line.” And so on. Oh, you want to play on? Go. “What’s your line? Who’s on the telephone line? Don’t cross crime line! Typically, pitchers bat ninth in line-up. Who’s on the firing line? Elmer’s hard to get a line on. The pages of my tablet are lined. Sis had a sip or two but still walks straight as a clothes line. Frances Farmer had gor-

geous lines.” OK, players, if I were referee here, the only word I’d haul in off the line for questioning is “lineup.” Still, the hyphen is such a thin line, I’d accept it. A confused Chinese friend of mine attending classes to improve her speech wonders if English is the only language with so many double-meaning words. She mentioned three quick everyday examples: their, there and they’re. “Is enough to confuse Confucius,” she say. You know, one of my regrets in being blessed to live a fairly long life is that I haven’t learned a new word every day. Once upon

a time that was my cacoëthes. Well, I’m crazy about words. Maybe I did come across fresh ones daily, but in time the expanding collection is an albatross to drag around. I have ample problems with my memory as is. You know what I mean. Truly, I can’t find enough words to thank God for life, and for my spouse who inoculates my life with unadulterated love and tender upkeep, and for the fact I don’t have to go online to tell them. No, I’ve not forgotten the irreplaceable you, the character reading these words. That’s the bottom line.

Your ability to resist eating a cookie, or your inability to control yourself, may have a lot to do with who you hang out with, according to a new study from the University of Georgia. Researchers say self-control is contagious. Ditto for lack of self-control. The series of studies involved hundreds of volunteers. They found that watching or even thinking about someone with good self-control made them more likely to exert their own self-control. The opposite was also true — so much so that seeing the name of someone with good or bad self-control flashing on a screen for just 10 milliseconds changed behavior. “The take home message of this study is that picking social influences that are positive can improve your self-control,” said lead author Michelle vanDellen, a visiting assistant professor in the Georgia department of psychology, in a statement. “And by exhibiting self-control, you’re helping others around you do the same.”

It’s been known that people tend to mimic behavior. This is true when it comes to smoking, drug use and obesity, the researcher said. But the new study is thought to be the first to show that self-control is contagious across behaviors. Researchers said that means that thinking about someone who regularly exercises can make a person more likely to stick with his financial goals, career goals or other things that involve self-control. The finding were published in the early online edition of the journal “Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.” VanDellen said the findings, however, do not absolve people of accountability for their actions. She said it was more of a “nudge” toward or away from temptation. So eat the cookie, but don’t blame the baker.

Greg Rubin makes a jump near the Phil’s Trail parking lot in 2009. The 33-year-old Bend man is among the contestants trying to make the leap to television on Comcast SportsNet’s reality show, “WANTED: Adventure Host,” airing Monday evenings through May 3.

Rubin Continued from C1 “On this one coming up, it’s kind of a shelter-building and first-aid thing,” he says. “There’s some getting wet involved, but it’s the first time we get outside, and really kind of see the outdoors a little more.” Born in Massachusetts, Rubin moved to Bend in 1996 to pursue freestyle skiing. “I moved here to ski and ride bikes. I’ve been here ever since,” he says. A Skjersaa’s Ski & Snowboard employee in winter and Sunriver mountain bike guide during summer, he knows the outdoors, especially the outdoors around Central Oregon. “It was kind of tragically ironic that I went on an adventure show to go see other things and was brought back to where I live,” Rubin says, chuckling. “But, overall, it was a great experience. You got taken care of, met a lot of good people and got to gain a lot of experiences. You work in the outdoors every

“I moved here to ski and ride bikes. I’ve been here ever since.” — Greg Rubin, of Bend day, but you’re not necessarily put to the test like they did for us.” This is the Northwest’s first outdoor reality show, according to Comcast SportsNet, and it’s judged by a diverse lot: Brian Wheeler, founder of the Northwest School of Survival-International Training Programs, Inc.; model, country singer and former “American Idol” contestant Kristy Lee Cook and “Danger” Ehren McGheary, of MTV’s “Jackass” franchise infamy. “It’s definitely a broad audience base with” Wheeler and McGheary, Rubin says. “I mean, even watching the early shows, my friends were like, ‘Wow, on one side they’ve got this guy

who’s all survival-oriented, and then the other guy could stick his finger in a light socket at any moment.’” Rubin’s fellow competitors also have a range of backgrounds; they include hunters, fishing enthusiasts, mountain climbers, world travelers and a stockbroker. “We all lived together and traveled together and ate together, so we got to know each other pretty well,” he says. “For the most part, I’d say … we all became good friends.” He’s as interested in seeing the outcome of “WANTED: Adventure Host” as anyone else watching the program. “We’re just as in the dark as you guys are,” Rubin says. “We were there, but other than that, how it all comes together and how it’s edited — there are definitely some things I’m real curious to see how they’re edited together.” David Jasper can be reached at 5 4 1 -3 8 3 -0 3 4 9 or at djasper@bendbulletin.com.

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, March 21, 2010: This year, your words have an impact. Others listen. Learn to flow from situation to situation, as quite a few surprises could greet you, especially during summer 2010. Holding on to the status quo won’t work any longer. Realize when to let go. If you are single, don’t count on a relationship being long term until it is. If you are attached, express the changing person within. Understand that your sweetie might be slow at the draw. GEMINI always is fun. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Communication continues to flourish. Make key phone calls. Once you start talking, getting off the phone will take talent! Your biggest issue could be fatigue. Take that nap, knowing you will revive! Tonight: Join friends for dinner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Be aware of the costs before you make an agreement. You might need to back off. How you handle yourself could make a big difference. Who is on the warpath — a roommate, or you? Calm down a situation rather than feed it. Tonight: Order in. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You know what to do. Follow your instincts, knowing others are likely to be highly responsive. A boss or parent seems to be unusually demanding. Just

like you, others feel strongly about their opinions. Listen. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Know when to chill or take some personal time. In your mind, you are sorting out a lot. Feedback might not produce positive results. Pretend that what you are concerned about has nothing to do with you, then think it through. Tonight: Get some extra zzz’s. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Draw others together, ignoring a squabble or two. If you consider what is happening on a deeper level, you will understand. Give attention to the positives, not the negatives. A partner has so many suggestions, you could be overwhelmed. Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH If you want events to flow a certain way, take the lead. Know that this is your choice. A partner or dear friend gives you a lot of feedback. So much is happening so fast. Be careful with spending. In the long run, a conservative attitude will pay off. Tonight: Could be late. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH If you feel off, be honest with yourself, as well as others. Too much is happening too fast. You are considering a different approach. For now, keep considering, and choose not to act. You know what you need and want. The path to get there might not be clear. Tonight: Return calls. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH The smart Scorp will allow his or her partner, loved

one or friend to make the plans. In many ways, that decision could make your life much easier. Your creativity spins out in the company of a child. Once more, there is no time like the present. Tonight: Go with a suggestion. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Defer to others, knowing full well new possibilities will appear on the horizon. If you really want to understand what others want, give them the power of expressing those desires and acting on them (within reason!). You could be delighted by what is revealed. Tonight: Say “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You could push someone away when you least intend to. Relax — it is Sunday. Give up thinking about this project or that one. Investigate alternatives more carefully, also asking for suggestion. Make it OK to allow this to become a lazy day! Tonight: Just for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Containing yourself could be close to impossible, especially when dealing with a key person. Join friends and family who allow you to be silly and frivolous. You need some time to be a kid or to “let the child in you out.” Tonight: Forget that tomorrow is Monday -- please. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Good intentions might be nice, but right now actions count. Make family, roommates and those at home your highest priority. If you live alone, take some muchneeded time out. When you recharge, you will feel so much better. Tonight: Happy at home. © 2010 by King Features Syndicate

Newly independent OK Go has more to offer than viral clips By Steve Johnson

thing also genuine and non-ironic and that’s not silly at all about just seeing a well-designed system do something that you sort of marvel at. You marvel at both it happening and the amount of effort and planning that goes into making such a good system.

Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — It’s been hard to miss OK Go lately. Not only has the power-pop band with Chicago roots taken another music video viral with its jaw-dropping, Rube Goldbergmachine take on “This Too Shall Pass” (youtube.com/user/OKGo), OK Go just shed its major-label affiliations to become a truly independent band. This came in the wake of a dispute with the band’s former label, EMI, that got to the heart of some of the music industry’s current woes. Despite the 2006 dancingon-treadmills video (for “Here It Goes Again”) that brought the band to national prominence, EMI no longer wanted OK Go videos to be embeddable on Web sites it did not earn money from, and lead singer Damian Kulash retorted — in a February Op-Ed piece in a national newspaper — that in the year 2010, letting your work flow freely is essential. “I imagine dropping us gets a lot more attractive when we start mouthing off,” Kulash said in a telephone conversation from Los Angeles, from which the following conversation is excerpted. “We’re a good band not to be associated with if we keep writing those things for the New York Times explaining how stupid they’re acting.” Kulash, thoughtful and talkative, elaborated on striking out on their own, how there aren’t really hard feelings toward EMI and why he doesn’t worry about being perceived as a video band. He ended our first phone call by saying, “Can you make me not sound like the pretentious pontificating (person) I was being at the beginning there?” He would later arrange a second call to talk some more. You said Paracadute (Italian for “parachute), the name of your new company, is your second-favorite word. What is first? Pamplemousse (French for “grapefruit”). But it didn’t really seem as appropriate to a band that’s jumping off the Titanic, you know what I mean?

Q: A:

In a nutshell, why did you go independent — and I know there’s no nutshell answer.

Q:

When you’re planning a new video now, is there just this overwhelming pressure? It’s only really pressure if you look at videos as advertisements or as stunts. And that’s largely how the traditional music industry has seen them and would like to see them. But we’re not really in the business of subscribing to their models, and it doesn’t work for us when we do. Music videos have been a part of our creative output as a band for a long time, and they’re just sort of part of what we make. It’s kind of like asking if you’re trying to have each of your children oneup the one before it. We love them all. In fact, I sort of see them the same way you do songs. They’re not all going to be singles. In fact, you don’t want them all to be singles.

Q: A:

Abaca Press via McClatchy-Tribune News Service

OK Go, seen at Radio City Music Hall in 2006, has recently freed itself from label EMI and dropped another viral music video on the Web, “This Too Shall Pass.” Well, there is one nutshell answer, which is because they let us. In the last five or 10 years, the only function that labels productively served was startup investment for bands. You don’t want to put your own money into it because you’re likely to lose all that money, and if you’re lucky enough to get to a point of solvency, the money you’re making should basically be paying back all the bands that are failing. That’s how the risk aggregation of the system works. So if you’re a band that’s already gotten your head above the water, the last thing you need is a label. All they’re doing is using your profits to prop up their new projects, you know? We don’t need their distribution anymore. And we promote ourselves way better than they do. There is no reason to stick with them except you are contractually bound to.

A:

What’s keeping you busiest these days? Is it handling the fervor over the video or the announcement about breaking off on your own? Essentially at this point, there are three things. One is press. Two is actually setting up the label. We have a pretty good team in place already, but

there are a few things we need to still solve. You make an announcement like that and every single person in the music industry who has some idea for a way forward has written to us. The third thing keeping me busy is we are shooting another video next week, so I am busy figuring it out.

Q: A:

Is that a high-concept one?

It’s the same level of concept as you would expect from us. Were going to attempt to do a single take that actually takes 24 hours. It’s not all the

same speed, so it goes from extreme high-speed photography to very time-lapsed, all in one take, for the song “End Love.”

Q: A. Q: A:

Is there choreography involved? Yes, there is. Woo hoo!

You’ve heard this question before, but is having a great video kind of a twoedged sword? Does it make it too easy for people to kind of ignore or otherwise discount the music? I hate to keep playing this semantic game. But if people are stuck thinking that we are supposed to fit into the models of creativity and capital“C” cool from 10 years ago or 40 years ago, that, to me, seems like their problem and not ours. I’m happy making the stuff. And I’m especially happy that enough people like it that we get to keep making it. Again, this isn’t some Machiavellian marketing plan to get people to pay attention to us. This is the stuff we like making. Imagine if people saw their food as having to get better every day. Do we have to outdo ourselves with the next pizza? No, it just has to taste really good. Or, like, is dessert undoing the appetizer? This is the stuff we like making, and we hope people like diving into it with the same gusto they would dive into a good meal. There are many courses to it.

Q: A:

Weekly Arts & Entertainment Every Friday In

Does there have to be choreography involved? No, there doesn’t have to be choreography involved. I mean, it’s funny to see guys who are not born dancers dancing. It’s funny to see a rock band not being cool. But there’s some-

BASEBALL Bend resident signs deal with Red Sox FORT MYERS, Fla. — Veteran relief pitcher Alan Embree, who lives in Bend, has signed a minorleague deal with the Boston Red Sox. Embree, a 40-yearold lefthander, on Alan Embree Saturday signed a contract that reportedly calls for him to make a $500,000 salary if he is added to Boston’s majorleague roster by April 15. An Oregon native who was born in The Dalles and attended Prairie High School in Brush Prairie, Wash. (near Vancouver), Embree has pitched for 10 different majorleague teams since he broke in with the Cleveland Indians in 1992. He previously pitched for the Red Sox (2002-05) and was part of Boston’s 2004 World Series championship team. Last season with the Colorado Rockies, Embree posted a record of 2-2 with a 5.84 earned-run average in 36 appearances. His 2009 season ended on July 10 when he was struck by a line drive and suffered a broken right leg.

Central Oregon gives residents and tourists a chance to ski and golf — and if the weather is right, sometimes all in the same day

Reason No. 1,001 to love the NCAA Tournament if you’re not a devotee of Kansas or Villanova: Although the odds are stacked heavily against their mid-major teams winning the national championship, the early rounds provide a platform for talent that operates largely below the radar. Davidson’s Stephen Curry in 2008, the George Mason guys Lamar Butler and Folarin Campbell in 2006, and more than a decade ago, Wally Szczerbiak from Miami, Ohio, used the tournament to introduce themselves to those whose hoop viewing is limited to the majors. Today, the college basketball world knows about Northern Iowa guard Ali Farokhmanesh and St. Mary’s center Omar Samhan, a pair of hoops heroes of Middle Eastern heritage. See Madness / D4

Resort’s Challenge Course in Redmond, made the day affordable. With skis and golf clubs packed, we set off on a sports-filled day that started in The Bulletin parking lot, lasted about 10 hours, and ended with four sore legs and two cranky backs. There was plenty of sunshine last week, and we took advantage with more than enough snow plows, shanks and slices. All in all, it was the kind of day that makes a weekend warrior feel lucky to live in Central Oregon. Zack: Our first stop was at Sisters Bakery. A couple of ham-and-cheese croissants made for a great start to the day.

Mark: I would have enjoyed my croissant more if Zack would have quit talking about the housing market. Z: Sorry to elevate the conversation.

Roddick advances to Indian Wells final By Beth Harris The Associated Press

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Andy Roddick took his beat-up body back home after losing in San Jose and Memphis last month. A couple weeks of workouts, practice, massage and chiropractic treatments later, he got his groove back. Roddick outlasted Robin Soderling 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 Saturday to make the BNP Paribas Open final for the first time after failing to get past the semis in his three previous trips to the desert. “I think I needed it,” he said. “It was good timing, and I’d love to see it one further.”

The American will play for the title today against Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia, who rode his big serve to a 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1) victory over defending champion Rafael Nadal — the first time in 26 years that both men’s semifinals went three sets. Nadal teamed with fellow Spaniard Marc Lopez to win the men’s doubles, 7-6 (8), 6-3 over top-seeded Daniel Nestor of Canada and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia. Jelena Jankovic and U.S. Open finalist Caroline Wozniacki will play for the women’s title today. All three of Roddick’s semifinal losses were against top-10 players, including Nadal last year.

No American man has won the singles at Indian Wells since Andre Agassi in 2001. “This is probably the only real big tournament in North America that I haven’t won,” he said. “I feel like the crowd was on my side and I would hope they’re there tomorrow. They certainly have an effect on a match.” Roddick and Soderling took turns throwing their rackets in frustration as the momentum swung back and forth. Roddick gained control when he held for 3-all in the third, then broke Soderling en route to winning three of the final four games.

Furyk in control as final round looms OSU sweeps Maine The Associated Press

From wire reports CORVALLIS — Tanner Robles scattered two hits over eight innings and the 18th-ranked Oregon State baseball team erupted for 12 runs in a 12-2 victory over Maine in the second game of a doubleheader sweep Saturday at Goss Stadium. “We came back after holding on to the first game win and we’re obviously happy to see that,” Oregon State head coach Pat Casey said. “Tanner threw well, and did so after having to sit awhile during a couple big innings. These are important wins as we get close to the end of nonconference play before Pac-10 games begin.” Robles struck out a careerbest 12 batters in the win, the most since Mike Stutes totaled 12 against UNLV in 2007. Robles allowed a hit to start the fourth, then gave up a triple in the eighth, but otherwise worked well through the Maine lineup. The lefty surpassed his previous career-best seven strikeouts, and his only run allowed — in the fourth — was unearned. The lefty improved to 4-1 on the year, lowering his earned run average to 1.72 from 2.31 in the process. The Beavers finished with 15 hits in the second game, just a day after posting a season-best 18. Stefen Romero paced Oregon State with three hits, giving him five on the day. Keith Jennette tied for the team lead, posting three hits as well. Rob Folsom, Matt Boyd and Danny Hayes each had two hits apiece for Oregon State, which pushed its win streak to seven games, its longest since concluding the 2007 season at 10 straight. The Beavers are 13-3 on the year, while Maine is now 7-11. In the first game, OSU held on for a 7-5 victory. Romero hit his second home run in as many games and Hayes drove in two in his second consecutive start as the Beavers opened the doubleheader with the win. Tyler Waldron made his fifth start of the season, and went six innings to improve to 3-1 on the year. Waldron scattered five hits and four runs while striking out seven.

UO takes two from Nevada From wire reports EUGENE — Oregon baseball won its third series of the season and will head into today’s series finale looking for its second sweep of the year after two wins over Nevada on Saturday afternoon at PK Park in front of 2,074. The Ducks (15-6) have now won 10 of their last 11. In game one of the doubleheader, the Ducks came back from a four-run deficit to defeat Nevada 12-7. The Ducks tallied 12 runs on nine hits, and were issued 11 walks. Sophomore right-hander Scott McGough picked up his third win of the season, pitching the final 4 1 ⁄3 innings of the game in relief of starter Zack Thornton. McGough held the Wolf Pack to two runs on four hits in his time on the mound while striking out two, facing just 16 batters during his time on the hill. At the plate, K.C. Serna produced three RBIs on a one for four day while scoring two runs and stealing two bases. Marcus Piazzisi was two for four with two RBIs and a run scored, while Jack Marder and Eddie Rodriguez also had twoRBI days. In game two, the Ducks won 5-2 in a seven-inning affair shortened for the doubleheader. Senior right-hander Justin LaTempa improved to 2-1 on the season, allowing just two runs in his six innings on the mound. Junior right-hander Drew Gagnier came on in the seventh to retire the side in order and pick up his third save of the season. Oregon got to Nevada starter Brock Stassi early, putting three runs on the board in the bottom of the first. Rodriguez, Shawn Peterson and Paul Eshleman all knocked in runs in the inning.

Chris O’Meara / The Associated Press

Jim Furyk tees off on the 14th hole during the third round of the Transitions Championship golf tournament Saturday at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Fla. Furyk finished in the lead at 11-under par.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Two straight birdies allowed Jim Furyk to pull away from the pack. Eighteen holes is what stands in the way of ending his longest stretch without a victory since he was a rookie. Furyk played bogey-free Saturday with a round almost as flawless as Florida weather, finishing off a 4-under 67 to build a three-shot lead at the Transitions Championship as he tries to win for the first time since the 2007 Canadian Open. “I’m in a great position in the tournament,” Furyk said. “I’ve got a three-shot lead. You kind of dictate what the other guys have to do.” Furyk was at 11-under 202, with a strong group of contenders behind him. Defending champion Retief Goosen birdied the last hole of a roller-coaster round that gave him a 1-under 70, part of four-way tie for second. The others at 8-under 205 were two past champions at Innisbrook — K.J. Choi (67) and Carl Pettersson (70) — and Bubba Watson, who has never won on tour. He scrambled for a 70. Padraig Harrington, a three-time major champion who hasn’t won since the 2008 PGA Championship, went 14 holes without a birdie to fall out of the lead, then dropped another shot on the 18th hole for a 72 that left him four shots behind. Furyk is zero for 58 on the PGA Tour since his last victory. This is his first 54hole lead since the Colonial nearly three years ago, when he lost in a playoff to Rory Sabbatini. There have been times when he let tournaments get away down the stretch, and times when he was beaten, such as the Memorial last year when he was three shots better than everyone in the field except one guy — Tiger Woods — who won by a shot. Sunday might be his best chance. The few times when Furyk made a mistake, such as missing the green on the par-3 fourth, he made up for it with his putting. Later in the warm afternoon, when he was giving himself so many birdie chances, he had to settle for par. The turning point came early on the back nine.

Four players had at least a share of the lead at some point, and eight players were within range until Furyk hit a 3-wood just left of the green on the par5 11th and chipped to 4 feet for birdie. On the next hole, he hit 7-iron to some 35 feet behind the flag, and poured in a long, slippery put that broke sharply to the cup. Suddenly, he was three shots clear and his prospects were looking up. Not so for Pettersson, who closed out the front nine with consecutive bogeys, or Steve Stricker, who was tied for the lead until hitting his tee shot in the water on the par-3 13th and scrambling for bogey. Stricker dropped another shot on a par 3 coming in for a 71, and wound up five shots behind. Choi is a two-time winner in Tampa and feels as comfortable on the Copperhead course as any. “I look at the tops of the trees to see the wind,” Choi said. “You have to know, and it can get frustrating. You can lose it out here. This course will do that. That’s why you see so many players who have won here before, because they know that.” Goosen also is a two-time winner, and while he didn’t light up the course, playing bogey-free on the back nine didn’t hurt. The wild card is Watson, the big hitter who was a little too crooked but scrambled well to stay in the game. Watson hit one tee shot that didn’t get beyond the forward tees on the par-3 eighth because it hit a tree. On the par-5 14th, his 3-wood into the wind wound up so far right of the green that players on the 15th tee had to back off the shot. Today features an early start because of storms in the forecast for the afternoon. Also on Saturday: South African shoots 64 in Morocco RABAT, Morocco — South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen shot a 9-under 64 to take a two-stroke lead over Wales’ Rhys Davies in the Hassan II Trophy. Oosthuizen had 10 birdies and a bogey on Royal Golf Dar Es Salam’s Red Courseto to finish at 20-under 198. Davies shot a 68. South Africa’s Thomas Aiken (67) and France’s Thomas Levet (68) were 16 under.

Shootout goal lifts Coyotes over Blackhawks The Associated Press GLENDALE, Ariz. — Radim Vrbata and the Phoenix Coyotes did what only three teams have done — rally after two periods to beat the Chicago Blackhawks. Vrbata scored the lone goal of the shootout and the Coyotes twice came back from two-goal deficits to beat the Blackhawks 5-4 on Saturday night for their eighth straight win. “It was the same as the last game,” Vrbata said. “We fell behind but we went out and had a really good third period. We never want to quit, and we came back and found two points.” Antti Niemi stopped attempts by Wojtek Wolski and Lauri Korpikoski before Vrbata scored on a backhand shot that lifted the water bottle off the top of the net. “The first game off the road can be a trap game,” said coach Dave Tippett, whose Coyotes were perfect on their just-completed four-game trip. “But our guys answered the bell.” Ilya Bryzgalov saved shots by Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp in succession for his 39th win of the season.

MEN’S BASKETBALL: NCAA TOURNAMENT

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL: NCAA TOURNAMENT

Northern Iowa shocks No. 1 Kansas in NCAAs By John Marshall The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Leading by one against the colossus of the bracket, Ali Farokhmanesh stood at the three-point line, no one around. The prudent play? Pull it out, burn some clock. Not a chance. Taking his shot at history, Farokhmanesh let fly from the wing. Swish! The biggest upset in a tournament full of them was done. Northern Iowa had taken down mighty Kansas. Playing with poise down the stretch and getting another big three-pointer from Farokhmanesh, Northern Iowa pulled off one of the biggest NCAA upsets in years by knocking No. 1 overall seed Kansas from the bracket with a programdefining 69-67 win on Saturday. “If anybody’s going to shoot that shot, I want it to be Ali,” Northern Iowa’s Jake Koch said. This year’s NCAA tournament has been defined by its upsets. Eight double-digit seeds moved through the bracket in the first round. No. 10 Saint Mary’s beat Villanova on Saturday and No. 11 Washington shoved aside New Mexico. This was the biggest shocker of all. Winning the tempo tug-of-war, ninth-seeded Northern Iowa (304) grounded the high-flying Jayhawks with in-their-jersey defense, then withstood a furious rally to become the first team to beat a No. 1 seed in the second round since UAB and Alabama did it to Kentucky and Stanford in 2004. Farokhmanesh, Northern Iowa’s first-round hero, had the biggest play of all. With Kansas charging and

The Northern Iowa bench runs onto the court after their 69-67 win over top-seeded Kansas in an NCAA tournament second-round game, Saturday in Oklahoma City. its fans roaring, the fearless son of an Iranian Olympic volleyball player caught the ball on the wing after the Panthers had broken Kansas’ press. The shot clock still in the 30s, he hesitated for just an instant, then cast his bracket-busting shot with 34 seconds left on the game clock. Trailing 66-62, Kansas had one last chance, but Tyrel Reed was called for an offensive foul and Farokhmanesh sealed it with two free throws with five seconds left, sending the Panthers to the round of 16 for the first time. Next up is the Michigan StateMaryland winner in St. Louis

— and another chance at history. “This team has done such a great job of turning the page to what’s next, and this would be the biggest challenge of the year,” Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson said. “A lot of positive things have happened because of the way these guys played.” Kansas (33-3) fell behind early and came up just short on one of its anticipated runs, ending a season that started with national-title aspirations on another disappointing NCAA loss to a mid-major. The Jayhawks trailed by as many as 12 points and used defense to pull within one with

44 seconds left. But they let Farokhmanesh sneak behind them for the deciding three to go down for the mid-major count like they did to Bradley in 2006 and Bucknell the year before, also in Oklahoma City. Cole Aldrich had 13 points and 10 rebounds, Marcus Morris added 16 points and Sherron Collins ended his stellar KU career with 10 points on four-of-15 shooting. “Obviously, everybody is disappointed on our team,” Aldrich said. “To work so hard and to go through so much adversity ... it’s disappointing that we couldn’t have let Sherron go out in a better way.”

Pac-10 rolls on: Washington knocks off No. 3 seed The Associated Press SAN JOSE, Calif. — Quincy Pondexter and Isaiah Thomas danced to Washington’s timeout huddle after finishing yet another second-half fast break with a basket and a bellowing vocal flourish. In their wake, the weary New Mexico players huffed and puffed to the bench, their shoulders sagging. The rest of the NCAA tournament’s East Regional had better listen to all that barking. When these surging Huskies are running in unison, they’re no ordinary 11th seed — and not even third-seeded New Mexico can keep up. Pondexter scored 18 points, Thomas added 15 and Washington extended its incredible lateseason roll all the way to the regional semifinals with an 82-64 second-round victory Saturday. Matthew Bryan-Amaning had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Huskies (26-9), who have won nine straight, including the Pac-10 tournament and wins over two higher-seeded opponents at the Shark Tank. Washington ran right past the Lobos (30-5), who simply couldn’t keep up with the breakneck offensive pace in their second loss

Madness Continued from D1 Their shining moments that authored major upsets on Saturday thrust them into NCAA tournament lore, as it did for Curry and the like, and now that their teams and not the Jayhawks and Wildcats are moving on, you’ll hear plenty about the game’s newest heroes as they prepare for the Sweet 16. Farokhmanesh wasn’t just hot with his long-distance shooting, setting the tone with his early bombs as the ninth-seeded Panthers took the game to No. 1 Kansas from the opening moments, but Farokhmanesh was gutsy throughout the game. Big-time upsets happen when teams take risks, and none was bigger than Farokhmanesh’s decision with 36 seconds remaining, and only six seconds into the shot clock. Northern Iowa led by one and the safe call here is to bleed the

ROUNDUP in three games, falling behind by 23 points midway through the second half. “We did a great job of forcing our tempo on them,” said Pondexter, who didn’t need another last-second tiebreaker as he did in beating Marquette two days earlier. “We wanted to show that we have another level of fast break and defensive intensity. That’s what really wore them down.” Washington advanced to next week’s regional semifinal in Syracuse, N.Y., against the winner of second-seeded West Virginia’s meeting with Missouri today. The Huskies are in the round of 16 for the third time since 2005. In other second-round NCAA tournament games on Saturday: EAST REGIONAL No. 1 Kentucky . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 90 No. 9 Wake Forest . . . . . . . . . . . . 60 NEW ORLEANS — Darius Miller scored a career-high 20 points and Kentucky made easy work of Wake Forest in the second round. It was the second consecutive blowout for the Wildcats (34-2), who crushed East Tennessee State 100-71 in their opener.

SOUTH REGIONAL No. 10 Saint Mary’s . . . . . . . . . . . 75 No. 2 Villanova . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 68 PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Omar Samhan scored 32 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead Saint Mary’s. Mickey McConnell stopped and fired an arcing 25footer that banked high off the glass to give the Gaels (28-5) a 68-65 lead with 1:15 left. Samhan used a two-handed block to turn back Reggie Redding, and McConnell made both ends of a oneand-one to make it 70-65. Star guard Scottie Reynolds struggled again, and the Wildcats (25-8) made an early exit a year after they played in the Final Four. No. 3 Baylor. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 76 No. 11 Old Dominion . . . . . . . . . . 68 NEW ORLEANS — LaceDarius Dunn scored 26 points and the third-seeded Bears outlasted Old Dominion. Baylor squandered a 14-point first-half lead but went on a late 8-1 run to pull away. Now, the Bears (27-7) head back to their home state to play Saint Mary’s in Houston in the round of 16. WEST REGIONAL No. 5 Butler . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 54 No. 13 Murray State . . . . . . . . . . . 52 SAN JOSE, Calif. — Ronald Nored’s three-point play snapped a tie with 25.4 seconds left, and Butler narrowly evaded a second

stunner by the 13th-seeded Racers in three days. Nored scored 15 points and Gordon Hayward had 12 before making the decisive defensive play for the fifth-seeded Bulldogs (30-4). No. 2 Kansas State . . . . . . . . . . . 84 No. 7 BYU. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 72 OKLAHOMA CITY — Jacob Pullen scored 20 of his career-high 34 points in the first half to help dig Kansas State out of an early 10-point hole, and the Wildcats turned away Jimmer Fredette and BYU in the second round. Pullen came alive with a scoring flurry shortly after he and Fredette got tangled up in transition in the first half, and K-State (28-7) didn’t trail again. MIDWEST REGIONAL No. 6 Tennessee. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 83 No. 14 Ohio . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 68 PROVIDENCE, R.I. — J.P. Prince scored 18 points, and Brian Williams and Wayne Chism had 12 rebounds apiece to lead Tennessee. It’s the third time in four years Bruce Pearl’s Volunteers have reached the NCAA’s second weekend. Tennessee (278) will play the winner of today’s Ohio State-Georgia Tech game in the round of 16. Tommy Freeman scored 23 points for Ohio, which was the lowest seed to get out of the first round.

clock. But Coach Ben Jacobson trusts his senior sharpshooter who had buried the game-winner against UNLV two days earlier and hits about 38 percent from beyond the arc. Don’t be deceived by that figure. When the ball leaves his hands, everybody believes it’s splashing in. So it was at the critical moment. Without hesitation, Farokhmanesh let it fly, and the dagger felled the nation’s topranked team and tournament’s prohibitive favorite. Farokhmanesh, who finished with 16 points, started his UNI career last year after transferring from Indian Hills Community College. His mom is an Iowan, his dad an Iranian who played on his nation’s 1980 Olympic volleyball team. And after today, Farokhmanesh will never have to buy a meal in Cedar Falls, Iowa, just as Samhan will always live large in Moraga, Calif., after his 32-point outpouring against Villanova, in what stood as the weekend’s big-

gest shocker until Northern Iowa trumped it. Samhan, who is of Egyptian descent and was named for the actor Omar Sharif, isn’t news in Moraga, Calif., home of St. Mary’s, or the West Coast Conference, where the Gaels usually play second fiddle to Gonzaga. Not now. St. Mary’s thumped the Zags for the conference tournament championship and unless the Bulldogs knock off topseeded Syracuse today, the Gaels will have advanced deeper into March Madness with a Sweet 16 date against Baylor in Houston next Friday. St. Mary’s had every reason to expect this kind of success. The Gaels have one of the nation’s best inside-outside games with Samhan, who became the first player in more than three decades to lead the conference in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots, and guard Mickey McConnell. Entering Saturday he led the nation in three-point shooting at 51.8 percent.

Villanova didn’t have an answer for either one, just as Kansas could do little with Farokhmanesh. Sadly, for the losers, their stars were dimmed. Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds, who carried the Wildcats to the Final Four last year, made two of 11 from the floor and finished with eight points. Kansas guard Sherron Collins missed all five of his three-point attempts and committed five turnovers. The pain of the crushing defeats won’t soon subside for both seniors. But neither departs without a contribution to the NCAA tournament story. Reynolds last year, and Collins in 2008, when his steal and three-pointer in the waning moments sparked Kansas’ comeback triumph in the national championship game against Memphis. Now, they’ll be joined by Farokhmanesh and Samhan, players who added another layer of memories to the madness.

Late run pushes Gonzaga past UNC The Associated Press SEATTLE — Tiffany Shives’ baseline jumper finally snapped Gonzaga’s scoring drought. Her four three-pointers that followed finally broke North Carolina. Scoreless for 31 minutes, Shives scored 14 of her 16 points in a crucial 5-minute stretch of the second half and the seventh-seeded Bulldogs held off No. 10 seed North Carolina for a wild 82-76 win on Saturday night in the firstround of the NCAA women’s tournament. Trailing 58-56, Shives hit from the baseline in front of the Gonzaga bench with 8:59 left. But that was just the start for the senior. She hit four consecutive three-pointers as Gonzaga (28-4) surged into the lead for good and extended its win streak to 19 games. Shives came into the tournament averaging just 8.1 points, but was a 40-percent three-pointer shooter during the season. The reward for the Bulldogs’ second tournament win in school history is No. 2 seed Texas A&M on Monday night in the second round.

PREP ROUNDUP

Gilchrist vaulter wins at 12-team meet

Continued from D1 Z: We wasted no time and headed to the top of the mountain. The snow was not bad, and even the black-diamond runs we started with at Hoodoo were manageable for a skier of my intermediate level. M: The corduroy was nice for carving quick turns, but I found myself waiting for Zack back at the chairlift after every run. (He claimed it was because his skis are shorter.) Z: I was busy trying to make a fool of myself. M: With ice, slush and no new snow, it was a day for groomers. But Bulletin photographer Andy Tullis just had to get us off-piste. We dropped in off the east side of the summit, making dorky turns through the corn snow. But Zack’s turns were decidedly dorkier. As I traversed back to the groomed snow, Zack’s uphill ski popped off in a yard-sale crash. But not 20 minutes later, his ski was back on and he was cruising down the mountain — winded, but injury-free. Z: Winded was right. I was without a ski on one leg and Mark was nowhere to be found. I’m sure he was busy hiding behind a tree and laughing as I dug myself out of the powder. By the time I got down the run, both my pride and legs were shot. But at least I made it.

Bulletin staff report OAKRIDGE — Gilchrist senior Ryan Stinson won the boys pole vault and placed third in the high jump to lead the Grizzlies at the Warrior Relays on Saturday. Stinson cleared 12 feet in the pole vault, besting runner-up Bebo Clark of Chiloquin by four inches. The meet featured several nontraditional events, such as a coed 3,200-meter relay, an event Gilchrist took third in, and a strong-man relay that used a banana instead of a baton. (Teams had to eat the banana before they crossed the finish line.) “We had a ball,” said Gilchrist coach James Anding. “It was beautiful out and everyone had a lot of fun.” Lizzi Pannel paced the Grizzly girls with a fourth-place finish in the shot put while Chelsie Anding finished fifth in the javelin. Gilchrist is off until March 31, when the Grizzlies compete at Bend High. In other prep events Saturday:

PREP SCOREBOARD BASEBALL Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin

Bulletin reporter Zack Hall, top, helps fellow reporter Mark Morical line up a putt at Eagle Crest Resort’s Challenge Course in Redmond on Tuesday. No. 16, one of maybe five birdies in my lifetime. Z: Yeah, but I probably had to line up the putt for you.

Z: We skied a few more runs — without incident, thankfully. We made a quick change into golf attire in the Hoodoo locker room and loaded up the car. By then, the back of my small SUV looked like a sporting goods store in the aftermath of a tornado. M: After the 45-minute drive to Eagle Crest, we teed it up at the Challenge Course. I hit a perfect shot off the first tee — but three straight 7s and a snowman soon appeared on my score card. God I hate golf. Z: It was a perfect shot if you consider 10 yards short of the putting surface “perfect.” We skipped warm-ups altogether, and after a few hours of skiing, I felt like I was wearing concrete boots. Mark even outplayed me on the first hole. But already he was saying his clubs were too short, setting up an afternoon full of excuses.

Z: Mark is a feast-or-famine golfer. He can hit the tar out of a golf ball, but he can also look lost at times. It was pretty interesting to watch. And his struggles started after the first couple of holes. M: No doubt. I typically measure my golf success by how many balls I lose. By the turn at Eagle Crest, I was down to a driving-range golf ball I dug out of my bag. Z: In defense of Mark, the wind kicked up in the midafternoon. Just before the turn, my legs finally loosened up and I played a nice series of holes. That all unraveled on the 130-yard 14th hole, when I smoked an 8-iron into the teeth of the wind only to watch it fall short of the green into a lake. I guess it was a three-club wind.

M: I didn’t need any excuses after sinking a 20-foot birdie putt on

M: Tell me about it. I hit two in a row into the lake, including one

that skimmed across the water’s surface like a flat rock I was trying to skip. For a couple holes there, I didn’t even know my score. Z: That is because we neglected to bring an abacus. But the birdie on 16 did spark Mark into the best golf I have ever seen him play. He almost drove the green on the 259-yard, par-4 17th. Pretty impressive stuff. However, morning skiing, a 16-hole walk and a lessthan-ideal workout regimen had taken their toll on me. I was just counting down to the finish. M: My feet hurt, my back ached — but we were finally done. Z: Not exactly. I still had to drive us home. By the time we got back to The Bulletin at about 6 p.m., we were both exhausted. It made for a long haul. But on a glorious March day in Central Oregon, it sure beat sitting in the office. Zack Hall can be reached at 541617-7868 or at zhall@bendbulletin. com.

Bud Selig lightheartedly talks MLB realignment BASEBALL

The Associated Press PHOENIX — Baseball commissioner Bud Selig admitted Saturday that he has put his ideas for realignment on paper, but that’s as far as it has gone thus far. “When I am on long airport rides I will fiddle around with divisions and things,” Selig said at Maryvale Baseball Park during a spring training game between the Kansas City Royals and Milwaukee Brewers. “The one thing about it: you come up with 100

different (scenarios).” There have been reports in recent weeks that one of the subjects the 14-person special committee Selig designated four months ago was the idea of “floating realignment” in which teams would not be fixed to a division, but free to change divisions from year to year based on geography, payroll and their plans to contend or not.

Selig wasn’t ready to go that far with the possible concept just yet. At the same time, he said it will be looked at by the committee. “I’ve always believed in realignment and we have done a lot in the last 18 years, but we really have not discussed that subject,” he said. “It’s a subject that has been on my mind for a long time, but is there anything to report? No. There have been some stories but that is way ahead of where we are.”

AUTO RACING: NASCAR

Celtics beat Mavericks to stretch win streak

Feuding drivers seem happy after meeting with officials

The Associated Press

BRISTOL, Tenn. — It took roughly 40 minutes with NASCAR for Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski to put their long-simmering feud to rest. At least that’s how it appeared as the two smiling drivers exited their highly anticipated Saturday meeting at Bristol Motor Speedway. “We laughed. We cried. In the end, I think it’s going to be good,” said Edwards, who playfully slapped at Keselowski’s shoulder as the drivers hustled to their cars after the meeting. NASCAR president Mike Helton summoned Edwards, Keselowski and their car owners into his at-track office to discuss a long-running feud between the drivers that exploded when Edwards intentionally wrecked Keselowski two weeks ago in Atlanta. The accident caused Keselowski’s car to sail into the air before bouncing on its hood. Although Edwards wrecked earlier in the race after contact with Keselowski, he’s maintained his deliberate retaliation stemmed from animosity created from several past incidents with the young driver. Aggressive and ultra-confident, Keselowski has gone bumper-to-bumper with several veterans the past two years and refused to back down. “This meeting wasn’t about Atlanta,” Helton said. “(It) wasn’t about trying to fix Brad. It was about Brad and Carl’s relationship. A conversation that we’ve had with other drivers in the past.” More than a dozen photographers and television cameras crowded the back of NASCAR’s trailer to capture the drivers’ exit, and the crowd followed them to pit road to meet them after their Nationwide Series qualifying laps. They parked side-by-side after their laps — Keselowski won the pole for Saturday’s race, while Edwards qualified fourth — and Edwards leaned over Keselowski’s hood to speak to his rival. Then both drivers vowed

Allgaier gets first NASCAR victory in Nationwide race BRISTOL, Tenn. — Justin Allgaier grabbed the first win of his NASCAR career Saturday by passing teammate Brad Keselowski on a late restart, then holding him off over the closing laps at Bristol Motor Speedway. Allgaier, last year’s Nationwide Series rookie of the year, had to hold his line over the final 27 laps to keep Keselowski from passing him. “That battle with Brad at the end was awesome, and I couldn’t have been happier at the end to see two Penske cars up there running for the win,” Allgaier said in his first visit to Victory Lane. The win was the first for Dodge at Bristol since Aug., 2007. Keselowski, the pole-sitter who led 73 laps, finished second to give team owner Roger Penske his first 1-2 finish in the Nationwide Series. Keselowski said he didn’t mind Allgaier passing him on the restart with 27 laps to go because of an incident at Bristol last year, before they were teammates, when Keselowski wrecked Allgaier in a similar situation. “I had one coming,” Keselowski smiled. — The Associated Press

to move on in their relationship. “Hopefully it will be productive to where we can move forward and continue to race each other hard and not have any more incidents like we did at Atlanta,” Keselowski said. “You have to understand that Carl and I have a mutual respect. In a sense, we’re almost the same people. We come from similar backgrounds and drive the same way. “I had a lot of respect for him before and after the accident, so hopefully that will stay the

same.” What remains to be seen is how other drivers react ontrack, beginning with today’s race at Bristol. The .0533-mile bullring is a venue that creates aggressive driving, excessive contact and extreme tempers. Edwards begins a three-race probation period this weekend that has him under careful scrutiny from NASCAR, which won’t tolerate anything out of line from him. But Keselowski still has a long list of drivers who are adamant the youngster needs to turn his aggression down a notch, and Bristol is an easy place to send a message that could go unnoticed by NASCAR officials. “I think he’ll learn. He’s going to say he’s going to race the same way, but I’m sure he won’t,” said Juan Pablo Montoya. “And if he does, somebody else will wreck him again. Race hard because you want to show you can get the job done. But you’ve got to learn to respect everybody.” Roger Penske, owner of Keselowski’s car and one of the most respected leaders in the racing industry, vowed his support for his newest driver. Keselowski got his break in the Nationwide Series driving for Dale Earnhardt Jr., spent time in development with Hendrick Motorsports, but signed with Penske last fall when a Sprint Cup Series ride with HMS didn’t materialize. Aside from the Atlanta incident, none of Keselowski’s issues have occurred under the Penske banner. “He’s a terrific talent,” Penske said. “I don’t tell my drivers to run hard or to run soft. I think he knows what he has to do on the race track with his peers and quite honestly, he’s not making any statements about what he’s going to do or not do. I think the media has taken some of that and moved it further and made him with a bigger circle around him. “What I want him to do is run fair on the race track and be competitive. But he’s got to respect the other drivers. They have to respect him.”

DALLAS — The Boston Celtics got the split they wanted with the Dallas Mavericks. Paul Pierce scored 29 points, Rajon Rondo added 20 points and 10 rebounds, and the Celtics stretched their winning streak to four games with a 102-93 victory over the Mavericks on Saturday night. Ray Allen had 21 points for the Celtics, beaten by the Mavericks 99-90 in Boston on Jan. 18 in their only other meeting this season. Boston’s Rasheed Wallace vowed “retribution” in the rematch, complaining after the game in January that the referees give Dallas’ top scorer Dirk Nowitzki preferential treatment. Wallace refused to comment after Saturday night’s game, but Rondo said the Celtics weren’t dwelling on the past. “We don’t look at it as payback,” Rondo said. “That game was over when it happened. It’s a new time for us and we just needed a win.” Nowitzki had 37 points in the first meeting, but Boston’s Kevin Garnett, a longtime Nowitzki nemesis, missed the game with a hyperextended right knee. Had he been healthy, Garnett would have been the primary defender on Nowitzki. This time, Garnett and Wallace took turns guarding Nowitzki, who still went 11 for 19 from the floor and finished with 28 points. Nowitzki had 12 points in the final quarter, but teammates were only able to provide nine more. The Celtics were coming off Friday night’s 94-87 victory at Houston. The Mavericks had been off since Wednesday night’s 113-106 home win over Chicago. “They had three days off, had prep time for us, and we played last night, so to come back at the end and take the game away from them was huge for us,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. Jason Terry added 18 points, and Shawn Marion had 16 for the Mavericks, who had won 14 of 15. “It’s frustrating,” Terry said. “These are games we’ve been winning.”

The tragedy of Ernie Kent

I

don’t know Ernie Kent, except that he spent 13 years building a basketball program at the University of Oregon under circumstances not exactly ideal in the modern age of college sports. During that time he took his team to the NCAA tournament five times — twice advancing to the round of eight — ran a pretty clean program and, according to those who track such statistics, graduated an admirably high number of his student athletes in a sport notorious for exploiting its players and dumping them overboard when they exhaust their usefulness. But, so far as I can tell as an amateur observer, Kent had one big flaw. He had back-to-back losing seasons, and not just any back-to-back losing seasons. His, unfortunately, came during the two seasons before Oregon is set to open its $200 million-plus basketball palace. And for a university that is continually crying the blues over the lack of state support, the need for a “proven” national glamour coach is absolutely essential to attract the ticket revenue to repay the state for the bonds it extended to build what is now said to be the single most expensive college basketball facility in the nation. So, Coach Kent, you’re out. Sorry, all that loyalty and integrity doesn’t stack up against the needs of the television-driven entertainment cartels that are now major conference college sports. That’s a tragedy on a number of levels, and not just at Oregon. In the past, the University of Oregon has maintained that building the basketball palace would be done with money completely separate from that which underwrites the academic side of the school. Contributions by donors, ticket and entry fees and state bonds that will be repaid are what are putting up this structure. I’m sure that was the honest intention of those behind the construction of this building. But it has the ring of all those professional sports franchises that blackmail cities and states into floating construction bonds to build arenas, else they will leave town. Given the experience of many municipalities, let’s hope the Oregon math works. One college president after another has sworn that this extravagance in sports is necessary. It, they say, builds alumni support and attracts donations, not to mention picks up a lot of television revenue. Successful football and basketball programs, they argue, underwrite all sports at many schools and help academics. That might be true, though the NCAA has been challenged by Congress to demonstrate that connection or lose some of its tax advantages. In a recent story on profits in college sports, The Wall Street Journal reported, “You name it, and colleges lose money on it. In a list examining the athletic departments of 119 Division I schools, 15 of the 17 men’s sports the NCAA examined lost money. Baseball and track and field were the most costly, and even fencing had a median loss of $114,000. “Only basketball and football were profitable, but they don’t bring in enough cash to offset the money-draining volleyball and wrestling teams of the world. “The combined annual profit for football and basketball (using median figures) was about $2.5 million. But if you take the median profits of every sport the NCAA documented, the typical athletic program lost almost $4 million. (And that doesn’t include women’s sports; all 19 the NCAA examined lost money, including basketball.)” Other reports only confirm that once state, school and student fee support is removed from the athletic programs, the notion of great financial benefit from athletic programs is challengeable, to say the least. Perhaps the University of Oregon is the exception to this. In any case, Coach Kent, you are out. After 13 years, you don’t even get the honor of one season in the new basketball palace. You were fired by a university athletic department that is prepared to let a convicted thief return — after a year out — as quarterback of its football team because he wins. And, unfortunately, for two important years, you didn’t.

Moving east China is drawing high-tech research from the U.S. By Keith Bradsher New York Times News Service XI’AN, China —

or years, many of China’s best and brightest left for the United States, where high-tech industry was more cutting-edge. But Mark Pinto is moving

in the opposite direction. Pinto is the first chief technology officer of a major American tech company to move to China. The company, Applied Materials, is one of Silicon Valley’s most prominent firms. It supplied equipment used to perfect the first computer chips. Today, it is the world’s biggest supplier of the equipment used to make semiconductors, solar panels and flat-panel displays. In addition to moving Pinto and his family to Beijing in January, Applied Materials, whose headquarters are in Santa Clara, Calif., has just built its newest and largest research labs here. Last week, it even held its annual shareholders’ meeting in Xi’an. It is hardly alone. Companies — and their engineers — are being drawn here more and more as Chi-

Reasonable end for one grievance

O

ne of the Redmond School District’s two sick-time grievances has been resolved, and the outcome could have been worse. Much worse. But district residents still have

much more cause for anger than relief. Being mugged is a lousy experience, whether the mugger gets away with $10 or $1,000. In order to save money, the district is operating on a four-day school week this year rather than a standard five-day week. While classes aren’t held on Fridays, workdays during the rest of the week tend to be longer. Compressing the week has allowed the district to pay its teachers for the same number of hours this year as last. The district also “bent over backwards” to maintain the hours of classified workers (non-teachers) this year, according to Marcy Tretheway, president of the Redmond chapter of OSEA, the classified workers’ union. The unions representing these two groups responded to the district’s extraordinary efforts on their behalf by brandishing their contracts and saying, in effect, “give us more money.” The contracts for both groups provide paid time off by the day. Because the working day is now longer — even though there are fewer working days — the teachers union demanded a bump in the number of paid hours contained in each sick day and emergency leave day. The demand could cost the district $470,000 over the next five years. That grievance is working its way through the resolution process. The classified union followed suit with a grievance of its own, based on similar logic. However, as Tretheway told us last month, many of Redmond’s classified employees were absolutely appalled by the demand, which was driven by the union at the state level. Perhaps the good sense of local classified employees explains the grievance’s fairly painless resolution, which will cost the district no more than $15,000. Those classified workers who qualify for personal leave (up

to three days per year) will be paid for the full length of the current work day. For all other paid leave, however, one “day” will continue to contain eight hours, as the district prefers. The district’s decision to accept this settlement was right. Redmond residents still have two reasons to be angry and one to be concerned. They should be angry, first, that any union has the gall to demand more money at a time like this. The classified contract under which the grievance was filed provides three paid personal leave days and 10 paid sick days. Employees who work 10 months per year also get 13 paid vacation days if they’ve been with the district for more than five years. That number climbs to 17 days for anyone who’s been with the district for more than a decade. Isn’t this enough, even if each “day” contains only eight paid hours, during a school year with a four-day workweek? Of course it is. Redmond residents should be angry, too, about the grievance process itself, which in cases like these ends in binding arbitration. If the classified employees and school district hadn’t settled the issue, it could have ended up in the hands of a single person — an arbitrator — whose decision would have been both final and, potentially, extremely expensive. Finally, Redmond residents should be concerned about the fact that the teachers’ grievances haven’t been resolved yet. Apparently, they want those extra hours no matter how much they actually need them and regardless of the effect on the kids they’ve been hired to teach. That’s some lesson.

It’s Madras madness W e’ve seen some dumb things over the years, but the likely fate of Madras High School Principal Gary Carlton might be the dumbest. Madras High has languished in Oregon’s academic basement for years. There are many reasons for such poor performance, and some (perhaps most) are beyond the control of school employees. We believe in holding teachers and administrators accountable for what they can control, which is why we support merit pay and oppose ironclad job security. But punishing people for things they can’t control is like shooting your dog because your cat missed the litter box. Carlton might soon find himself in just that position. By all accounts, he’s distinguished himself during his tenure at the high school. District Superintendent Rick

Molitor calls him a “passionate and involved” leader, and the Oregon Business Education Association named him 2009 Administrator of the Year. But when some kids enter high school at a third-grade reading level, as one teacher noted, there’s only so much you can do. Owing to its persistently unimpressive academic performance, Madras High qualifies for federal grants that could reach $6 million over three years. The catch: The district can’t have the money unless it removes Carlton from his position. Fortunately, the district can move him to another position. The district’s decision is a nobrainer. It has to take the money. Still, the trade-off is senseless and rigidly bureaucratic. If this is how the federal government handles educational reform, we shudder to think what it’ll do with health care reform.

In My View Help make this the Year of the Volunteer By Ed Onimus Bulletin guest columnist

T

hroughout Central Oregon, every city council and all three county commissions have adopted resolutions declaring 2010 as the Year of the Volunteer. As a fellow city councilor, we recognize the importance and value of volunteers in building quality of life and addressing the social issues that affect every community. We recognize, as President Bill Clinton did, “though government has an important role to play in meeting the many challenges that remain before us, we are coming to understand that no organization, including government, will fully succeed without the active participation of each of us. Volunteers are vital to enabling this country (and this community) to live up to the true promise of its heritage.” The Year of the Volunteer resolutions are a call to action. It is much like the old World War II poster of Uncle Sam with his figure pointing out to everyone that passes by, and emblazoned with the immortal words, “I Need You.” The Year of the Volunteer resolutions are calling out to the citizens of Central Oregon, “We Need You!” We need you because the need for volunteers is clear. The one night homeless count that was conducted this past January has not been published yet, but Central Oregon had nearly 2,300 homeless citizens in 2009; almost 40 percent were children. We were sixth in the country. With the current economic climate, it is not a stretch of the imagination to believe that the numbers will go up. Bend’s Community Center serves 800

to 1,000 meals every Sunday. That does not include what Jericho Table serves at the Redmond Senior Center. It does not include the communities of Madras or Prineville or Sisters or Warm Springs or any other Central Oregon community. It also does not include the food baskets that are distributed to families by NeighborImpact or any of the regional food banks. We have children — and adults — that cannot read. We have youth that are at-risk and in need of a mentor to lead them into adulthood. We have families without health insurance making choices between rent and medication. To address these issues, we have initiated this call to action called Year of the Volunteer. We want you and your action will depend on whether you are one of the 27 percent or one of the 73 percent. If you have volunteered for an organization in 2009, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Volunteerism in America report just published, you are one of the 27 percent. If you know someone: a friend, a co-worker, a family member who does not volunteer for an organization, they are one of the 73 percent. Here is where the call to action begins. For those in the 27 percent, if possible give a little bit more. We are asking for an extra 10 hours of volunteerism in 2010. If you volunteer 50 hours, give us 60. But here is the really important call to action. I can write letters to the editor and have interviews on TV and radio, and speak to various interest groups, but for the most part, I am preaching to the choir. I am asking volunteers to

volunteer. I am not reaching enough of the 73 percent. I want the 73 percent to pick their passion. I want them to find an issue that is important to them? Is it homelessness; is it hunger; is it illiteracy; is it the environment? If they see it happening and believe it to be wrong and think something should be done about it; that is their passion. And the responsibility to take action rests with them. Comedian Lily Tomlin said “I always wondered why somebody doesn’t do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.” Our call to action to the 27 percent is to help get the 73 percent to pick their passion and get involved. Studies published by the Corporation for National and Community Service show that non-volunteers would likely volunteer if invited by a friend, and the study just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 44 percent of current volunteers got their start when they were invited by someone else. The next time that you are going out on a volunteer event, invite a friend. The next time you are going to swing a hammer with Habitat for Humanity, invite a friend. The next time you are going to walk a relay or run a race for cancer or diabetes or Alzheimer’s, invite a friend. The next time you are going to serve a hot meal to a hungry family, invite a friend. Invite a friend: reach out to that 73 percent, and we could double the number of volunteers in 2010. We want you to invite a friend. We want you to help make 2010 the Year of the Volunteer. Ed Onimus lives in Redmond.

The political sex scandals we don’t really learn anything from

L

et’s consider the story of Rep. Eric Massa, a freshman Democrat from upstate New York who made headlines recently when he resigned from office amid talk about sexual harassment of male staffers. Massa’s defense was that the questionable conduct was boisterous horseplay by an old ex-Navy officer and five of his single male aides, who roomed together in one small Washington townhouse. “Not only did I grope him,” he said of one of his roommates, “I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe and four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday, and it was: ‘Kill the old guy.’” Already we have extracted our first important lesson from this scandal, which is that voters are going to have to pay more attention to where their elected officials bunk while they’re in the nation’s capital. Remember that last year we had the Prayer House, a much larger and nicer townhouse full of conservative Christian congressmen? They were supposed to be

engaged in discussions of the Bible, but, in fact, seemed to spend most of their time trying to bail each other out of adultery crises. The extremely overworked House ethics committee is looking into charges that the Democratic leadership should have done something about Massa sooner. It might have been a warning signal when he told a reporter that rather than pay substantial salaries to a handful of aides like most members do, he preferred to hire lots and lots of people who made so little that several of them were forced to economize by living with their boss. Massa has offered a raft of explanations for his sudden resignation, ranging from a possible cancer recurrence to a plot by the Democrats to drive him out of office because he opposed the health care reform bill. This last one instantly excited Glenn Beck, who invited Massa on his program in hopes of hearing more. The Beck interview was mesmerizing. Whatever Massa did or didn’t do with his

GAIL COLLINS aides, it was obvious that as a legislator, he is utterly loopy. His examples of political corruption consisted of Democratic leaders begging him to support the president and donors telling him that they wouldn’t give him more money if he voted against the programs they care about. To clean up the mess in Washington, Massa told Beck, voters should call their representatives and urge them to forget about the party or the president or even said voters’ own personal convictions and just “do what you think is right.” Now, people, here is the problem exactly. Do we really want to see them all follow their own private drummers?

Another star of this week’s political sex scandal headlines was Rielle Hunter, the John Edwards mistress. This particular saga is less interesting than it would have been if Edwards was actually an elected official rather than a man who has spent the past six years being consistently rejected by the American voters, state by state, primary by primary. Plus we have already learned the most important tip the story had to teach us, which is to avoid any candidate who makes his or her marriage the centerpiece of a campaign. Nevertheless, Hunter was eager to tell her version of the affair. As soon as Edwards told a national TV audience that the only woman he had ever loved was his wife, she reported, he called to assure her that he didn’t mean it. If Hunter was a more credulous soul, I would have taken all this as a terrible failure on the part of the national news media. Really, the whole point of writing about one straying, lying political alpha

dog after another is to alert the next generation that when a powerful pol invites you to come to his hotel room for a date, and suggests you arrive disguised as the turn-down maid, he is not going to stick with you through thick and thin. But Hunter is 45 and has been around the block a time or three. So I think it’s safe to say that she is not deluded so much as a woman intent on rearranging reality to suit her convenience. “Before I met Johnny, I had a lot of judgment about infidelity. Now I have a deeper and greater understanding and acceptance of people’s processes,” she told an interviewer for GQ. This was in happier times, before Hunter professed herself to be shocked by the magazine’s pictures of her lying on a bed wearing pearls and no pants, since she was sure the photographer would be interested only in face shots.

O Another ‘Comprehensive Reform’? C

andidate Barack Obama promised immigration activists, “I think it’s time for a president who won’t walk away from something as important as comprehensive reform when it becomes politically unpopular.” Now pressure groups are demanding Obama come through on his pledges. In response, the administration may trump the health care debate with another divisive issue — “comprehensive reform” on immigration — that is surely just as “politically unpopular.” After the failure of the polarizing cap-and-trade bill, and the current blood-on-the-floor fight over “comprehensive health care reform,” tackling illegal immigration right now would be a political nightmare. Activists at next week’s planned immigration “reform” rally in Washington, D.C., may use euphemisms like “comprehensive immigration reform” or stage demonstrations about “immigrant rights.” But most Americans have few problems with immigration per se — as long as it is legal and in numbers that facilitate assimilation and integration into American life. So let us be honest for once on this issue. The problem is almost exclusively one of illegal immigration — namely, the until-recent unlawful entry of somewhere between a halfmillion and 1 million new arrivals annually, mostly from Mexico and Latin America, that resulted in the current 11 million to 15 million illegal aliens

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON already living here in the shadows. Wiser counsel would insist on quietly continuing to close the border through increased security, employer sanctions, the use of tamper-proof IDs, and completion of the border fence. Without massive new influxes of illegal immigrants, society gains time to debate hot-button issues like guest-worker programs, amnesty and deportation. In the interim, the illegal community would become static — and far more rapidly integrate, assimilate, intermarry or voluntarily return home. But even as the number of illegal arrivals temporarily lessens due to stricter enforcement and the recession, the impatience of uncompromising activists increases — especially calls for amnesty as a reward for Hispanic bloc support in the 2008 election. If the administration is foolish enough to go along with their demands for such a blanket amnesty, President Obama may gain probable new registered voters, but it would be a political disaster that dwarfs the failed Bush administration attempt at addressing illegal immigration. Bush, remember, was a conser-

vative who tried both to work with Democrats and finesse his suspicious right-wing base into supporting a Republican-sponsored plan. And he still failed when his opponents equated his earned-citizenship proposals for illegal residents as euphemisms for blanket amnesty. But as a liberal with close ties to pressure groups like the National Council of La Raza (“The Race”), Obama won’t have nearly that bipartisan advantage, especially coming off a polarizing health care debate. In addition, the economy remains stagnant. The old argument that cheap laborers from the south do the work Americans won’t is now dated. Unemployed Americans might be more willing to hammer shingles, wait tables or mow lawns in the current depressed climate. And you can bet they are less willing to pay out unemployment, welfare and food and housing subsidies for those who are neither lawful residents nor always fully employed. More importantly still, violence-torn Mexico is constantly in the news. Members of drug cartels butcher each other, the innocent, the Mexican police — and Americans. Much of the frightening violence — far worse today than in Iraq — is right on the border. Sometimes it spills over, convincing most Americans to keep the border more, rather than less, concrete. We should also not forget that in cashstrapped times, politicians are taking a second look at all income and expendi-

ture. Illegal aliens are far more likely to work off the books for cash and thereby avoid normal paycheck tax deductions. Estimates put private remittances from the United States to Mexico and Latin America at anywhere from $30 billion to $50 billion a year. Much of that sum is believed to be sent by millions of illegal aliens. If low-paid residents choose to send billions southward, aren’t they more likely to need government subsidies to make up the difference? If next week’s protests turn out like some of the May Day rallies of the past — when chanting demonstrators waved the flags of nations that illegal aliens do not wish to return to while criticizing the country they most certainly wanted to remain in — it will only further turn off the general public. In a multiracial society, our system will implode if some residents can pick and choose which federal laws to follow. So the idea of yet another partisan knockdown, drag-out fight over “comprehensive reform,” begs the question: Would an Obama effort to offer another polarizing fix really be about solving pressing problems — or perhaps, once again, be more about creating bigger and permanent political constituencies?

RUBIN beard who was forced to abandon his own formal education when he fled the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s. He educated himself and began setting up schools in Afghan refugee camps in Pakistan. Royesh returned to Kabul after U.S. troops drove the Taliban out in 2001. He wanted to build schools there, especially for his own Hazara minority group, members of the Shiite Muslim sect who had faced severe repression under the Sunni Taliban. He ventured into Dasht-e Barchi, a dusty slum of around two million people, with dirt streets and open markets, with the goal of getting the community involved. He got locals to contribute land and started his school in a bombed-out building. Fees were modest, much lower than at other Afghan private schools, and they went almost entirely to teacher salaries, with some set aside to pay for the poorest students. When community members were able to raise more money, another classroom would be added. And Royesh, who has studied the Quran and

comparative political theory — on his own — put together a curriculum that stressed human rights and civic duties. “We did not wait for highly educated people as teachers,” he told me last week in Philadelphia. “I was not highly educated. We got people with a high school education and they could teach through grade six and educate themselves further, and now we have thousands of graduates who can read and write and teach others. “This is a model that can give a sense of responsibility to the community and help them recognize the value of education,” he said. When I visited the Marefat School in April — driving over roads so rutted and filled with water that I wasn’t certain we’d make it — it was buzzing with activity. The boys’ building consisted of two simple concrete levels of classrooms with an outdoor balcony and stairways around an open courtyard. Royesh wanted boys and girls to study together but was forced by Afghan law to put the girls in a separate building. When I visited a senior girls class, the students were talking about their demonstration against a draconian draft law that would have legalized marital rape in the Shiite community. These brave young women had all persuaded their fathers to let them demonstrate — a step unimaginable in the past — because such a law would violate their human rights.

KRAUTHAMMER tration went nuclear. After discussing with the president specific language she would use, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Netanyahu to deliver a hostile and highly aggressive 45-minute message that the Biden incident had created an unprecedented crisis in U.S.-Israeli relations. Clinton’s spokesman then publicly announced that Israel was now required to show in word and in deed its seriousness about peace. Israel? Israelis have been looking for peace — literally dying for peace — since 1947, when they accepted the U.N. partition of Palestine into a Jewish and Arab state. (The Arabs refused and declared war. They lost.) Israel made peace offers in 1967, 1978 and in the 1993 Oslo peace accords that Yasser Arafat tore up seven years later to launch a terror war that killed a thousand Israelis. Why, Clinton’s own husband testifies to the remarkably courageous and

visionary peace offer made in his presence by Ehud Barak (now Netanyahu’s defense minister) at the 2000 Camp David talks. Arafat rejected it. In 2008, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert offered equally generous terms to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. Refused again. In these long and bloody 63 years, the Palestinians have not once accepted an Israeli offer of permanent peace, or ever countered with anything short of terms that would destroy Israel. They insist instead on a “peace process” — now in its 17th post-Oslo year and still offering no credible Palestinian pledge of ultimate co-existence with a Jewish state — the point of which is to extract pre-emptive Israeli concessions. Under Obama, Netanyahu agreed to commit his center-right coalition to acceptance of a Palestinian state; took down dozens of anti-terror roadblocks and checkpoints to ease life for the Palestinians; assisted West Bank economic development to the point where its GDP is growing at an astounding 7 percent a year; and agreed to the West Bank construction moratorium, a concession that Secretary Clinton herself called “unprecedented.” What reciprocal gesture, let alone concession, has Abbas made during the

U

Obama presidency? Not one. Indeed, long before the Biden incident, Abbas refused even to resume direct negotiations with Israel. So why this astonishing one-sidedness? Because Obama likes appeasing enemies while beating up on allies — therefore Israel shouldn’t take it personally (according to Robert Kagan)? Because Obama wants to bring down the current Israeli coalition government (according to Jeffrey Goldberg)? Or is it because Obama fancies himself the historic redeemer whose irresistible charisma will heal the breach between Christianity and Islam or, if you will, between the post-imperial West and the Muslim world — and has little patience for this pesky Jewish state that brazenly insists on its right to exist, and even more brazenly on permitting Jews to live in its own capital? Who knows? Perhaps we should ask those Obama acolytes who assured the 63 percent of Americans who support Israel — at least 97 percent of those supporters, mind you, are non-Jews — about candidate Obama’s abiding commitment to Israel.

So it seems entirely fitting to see some of these same girls visiting the Constitution Center. Royesh says his students were fascinated by the story of the three U.S. Founding Fathers who refused to sign the Constitution without a Bill of Rights. “I told them that, even if you are a minority of three individuals, you can have an influence.” The Afghan students have taken photos — with digital and Flip video cameras provided by the program grant — of their elections and of symbols of their culture. Some of the initial pairings show an Afghan Hazara boy with raised prayer beads alongside a photo of African Americans with hands raised in church, and photos of Afghan girls and African American Muslim girls wearing headscarves. Both groups of students say they’ve been startled by the similarities between them and by how mistaken their previous stereotypes had been. “My grandmother prayed that I wouldn’t go,” Zainab Haidari said, “because I’d be a lonely girl in a kafir (infidel) city. I want to bring her another message … and give my message about (the need for) change in Afghanistan.” Royesh would like to see the State Department fund more such cultural exchanges, and more enrichment programs for Afghan schools, such as one that sent English teachers to 300 Afghan high schools, including his own. Helping Afghans who want to help themselves learn is clearly a terrific investment for both countries. If the Marefat model could be cloned in Afghanistan and elsewhere, we’d all be better off.

Obama administration creates Israeli crisis W CHARLES

WASHINGTON — hy did President Barack Obama choose to turn a gaffe into a crisis in U.S.-Israeli relations? And a gaffe it was: the announcement by a bureaucrat in the Interior Ministry of a housing expansion in a Jewish neighborhood in north Jerusalem. The timing could not have been worse: Vice President Joe Biden was visiting, Jerusalem is a touchy subject, and you don’t bring up touchy subjects that might embarrass an honored guest. But it was no more than a gaffe. It was certainly not a policy change, let alone a betrayal. The neighborhood is in Jerusalem, and the 2009 Netanyahu-Obama agreement was for a 10-month freeze on West Bank settlements excluding Jerusalem. Nor was the offense intentional. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not know about this move — step four in a seven-step approval process for construction that, at best, will not even start for two to three years. Nonetheless the prime minister is responsible. He apologized to Biden for the embarrassment. When Biden left Israel on March 11, the apology appeared accepted and the issue resolved. The next day, however, the adminis-

Let’s fight over a big strategy nderlying the latest U.S.-Israel spat over settlements is the deeper — real — problem: There are five key actors in the Israeli-Palestinian equation today. Two of them — the Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and the alliance of Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah — have clear strategies. These two are actually opposed, but one of them will shape Israeli-Palestinian relations in the coming years; indeed, their showdown is nearing. I hope Fayyad wins. It would be good for Israel, America and the moderate Arabs. But those three need their own strategy to make it happen. Fayyad is the most interesting new force on the Arab political stage. A former World Bank economist, he is pursuing the exact opposite strategy from Yasser Arafat. Arafat espoused a blend of violence and politics; his plan was to first gain international recognition for a Palestinian state and then build its institutions. Fayyad calls for the opposite — for a nonviolent struggle, for building noncorrupt transparent institutions and effective police and paramilitary units, which even the Israeli Army says are doing a good job; and then, once they are all up and running, declare a Palestinian state in the West Bank by 2011. The strategy of Fayyad — and his boss, President Mahmoud Abbas — is gaining momentum and is in “direct conflict with the network of resistance: Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas,” said Gidi Grinstein, the president of the Reut Institute, one of the premier Israeli policy research centers. Iran’s strategy, explains Grinstein, is simple: Destroy Israel through a combination of asymmetric warfare — like Hezbollah’s war from South Lebanon and Hamas’ from Gaza; delegitimize Israel by accusing it of war crimes when it combats Hamas and Hezbollah, who fight while nested among civilians; “religiousize” the conflict by making it Muslims versus Jews, focusing on symbols like Jerusalem; and, finally, suck Israel into “imperial overstretch,” e.g., keep Israel occupying the 2.5 million Palestinians in the West Bank, which Iran & Co. believe will lead to “Israel’s implosion.” Therefore, today, Fayyadism, which aims to replace the Israeli occupation of the West Bank with an independent Palestinian state, is the biggest threat to Iran’s strategy. So the smart thing right now would be for the other three parties to have a clear strategy to back Fayyadism. If only … Ever since Israel occupied the West Bank and its Palestinian population in 1967, Israelis have faced a dilemma: Do they want a Jewish state, a democratic state and state in all of the land of Israel (Israel plus the West Bank)? In this world, they can have only two out of three. I am certain that Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu understands this, which is why he has accepted the principle of a two-state solution. But his government is an impossible mix of moderate Labor Party and hard-line religious and nationalist ideologues who actually believe Israel doesn’t have to choose two out of three but can have all three if it just hangs tough. As a result, Bibi’s government can’t ignore the U.S. and Fayyad, but neither can it move decisively to help. The columnist Nahum Barnea of the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot compared Netanyahu “to one of those elderly drivers who straddle two lanes for fear of making a mistake, making the drivers trailing after them crazy and cause accidents. When he signals left, he turns right. When he signals right, he continues straight ahead.” Most of the pro-U.S. Arab states lack both vision and courage, so that leaves the Obama team to promote Fayyadism, which is a big idea but faces a huge structural challenge. In 2006-07, the Palestinian political system fractured between Hamas-controlled Gaza and a West Bank controlled by Fatah, led by Abbas and Fayyad. So, today, the Palestinian Parliament may not have the unity or legitimacy to endorse any agreement with Israel. Therefore, America must figure out how to bring about a West Bank Palestinian state next to Israel in this context. President Barack Obama was 100 percent right to call out Israel on its settlement expansion, which undermines the opportunities inherent in this moment. But he also needs his own clear strategy to exploit the opportunities inherent in this moment — and that has been lacking up to now from his foreign policy team. If we are going to fight with Israel — or better yet, work with it — let’s do so over a big U.S. strategy that we think can shape a more stable Middle East.

A grass-roots effort for Afghan education W TRUDY e all know the importance of educating girls (and boys, too) in poor Muslim countries. So it is exciting to come across a successful educational model developed by an unusual Afghan educator to teach poor minority children. And it’s a model with a special link to this country. Kabul’s Marefat School, the brainchild of Aziz Royesh, was built by the residents of a minority slum and teaches not only educational basics but principles of civic responsibility and humanistic values. I have visited the school and was bowled over by what it has accomplished. But equally fascinating: Last week, the National Constitution Center brought Royesh and a gaggle of Afghan boys in suits and girls in headscarves to Philadelphia, where the Marefat School has been paired with Constitution High School, a predominantly minority charter school. The link with the Marefat School was made by a young Philadelphian, Jeffrey Stern, who spent two years in Kabul and now manages international projects for the Constitution Center. Students of both schools are putting together an exhibit of photos about the meaning of freedom to minority groups. It will be shown the second week in May at the Constitution Center and later at the National Museum in Kabul. “Our school should be regarded as a branch of the Constitution Center,” says Royesh. And the Marefat School should be regarded as a model for how Americans can help Afghans get the education they need. What makes the Marefat story so exceptional is that it was built by poor Afghans who wanted better education for their children using small contributions and sweat equity. The inspiration came from Royesh, a compact man with a neat

A love story, with zombies An unlikely author sets her sights on apocalyptic stories

“Hell Gate” by Linda Fairstein (Dutton, 416 pgs., $26.95)

By Oline H. Cogdill Sun Sentinel

By Pam Kelley McClatchy-Tribune News Service

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carrie Ryan seems an unlikely chronicler of the undead. A debutante from Greenville, S.C., she swore off horror movies as a child after being traumatized by “Poltergeist.” Her goal, for years, was to write chick lit. Instead, her debut novel last year was “The Forest of Hands and Teeth,” a young-adult book set in a future where a zombie plague has destroyed modern civilization. Not exactly a 20-something romantic comedy. The critically acclaimed novel just cracked The New York Times best-seller list for children’s paperbacks. Last week, her equally creepy sequel, a dark romance called “The Dead-Tossed Waves,” hit stores. Ryan, a rising star in the world of young-adult literature, is embarking on a nationwide publicity tour. The campaign includes stickers with this line: “Eat. Prey. Love.” How’d she go from chick lit to zombies? The answer involves law school, George Romero, and, like so many good stories, true love. It began soon after Ryan, 32, graduated from Williams College in Massachusetts with an English degree. She wanted to write chick lit set in a big city. She had zero experience with big cities, however. So she decided, in what she calls “my grand plan,” to go to law school. Her logic? With a law degree, she could work in a glamorous city, gleaning material. She enrolled at Duke University, where she met J.P. Davis, a fellow law student from Chapin, S.C., who shared her passion for fiction writing. Somehow, probably because she was in love, she let Davis talk her into watching “Dawn of the Dead,” the 2004 remake of George Romero’s classic zombie movie. When it was over, she realized she had enjoyed herself. By the time she and Davis got their law degrees and moved to Charlotte, Davis had read her “The Zombie Survival Guide.” She was hooked. “What I find fascinating,” she says, “is not necessarily the zombies, but the surviving.” In Charlotte, the couple worked as lawyers by day. In the evenings, she wrote chick lit and Davis worked on his short stories. They talked about zombies. On walks, they’d imagine a world decimated by the undead. Then, one evening in 2006, Ryan was leaving her office in the Bank of America building, contemplating an article she’d read on the overfishing of tuna. How strange, she thought, to imagine a future where something as common as canned tuna was unknown. What other parts of our civilization, she wondered,

‘Hell Gate’ is first-rate in thrills, realistic plot

Diedra Laird / Charlotte Observer

Lawyer-turned-young-adult author Carrie Ryan poses with copies of her first book, “The Forest of Hands and Teeth,” and other zombie-related stuff in her home in Charlotte, N.C. might be forgotten in a future world? Suddenly, she had an idea — a story about a world nearly destroyed by a zombie plague, a place where people have lived so long in their fenced-in village, sealed off from the zombie-filled forest, that they’ve collectively forgotten about the world’s oceans. She pulled out her Blackberry and e-mailed herself a single sentence: My mother used to tell me about the ocean. After working for a couple of evenings, she told Davis she was writing about zombies. I hope you don’t mind, she told him, but I’m using your world. Ryan’s sentence about the ocean became the first line of her book. In 2007, she sold “The Forest of Hands and Teeth.” Her agent had sent the book out on a Friday. On Monday, she had a six-figure offer from Delacorte Press for a two-book deal. In late 2008, she quit her job. Today, instead of working in trusts and estates, Ryan writes at her computer near the fireplace in her home. She wears sockmonkey slippers and rainbow fingerless gloves that keep her wrists from aching as she types. On a good day, the weather is rainy gray, and she’s asking herself one of her favorite questions: What’s the worst thing that could happen? When you’re writing about a zombie-ridden post-apocalyptic world, it’s an excellent question to ask. Recently, Ryan sent the third and final book in her series to her editor. It’s scheduled for publication next year. Her apocalyptic vision was well timed. Teen readers are eat-

ing up end-of-the-world dystopian novels. Ryan never uses the word “zombie.” In her first book, the undead are called the Unconsecrated. In the second, set years after the first, the townspeople call them Mudo, the word for mute in the Caribbean language of Papiamento. But they’re definitely zombies. They moan and seek human flesh. With one bite, they turn the living into the undead. In the world Ryan creates, they’ve been around so long they’re viewed as a part of life, unfortunate but inevitable. Ryan and Davis have been engaged two years now. They plan to marry in April. In addition to practicing law with James, McElroy & Diehl, Davis has published several short stories. He also serves as Ryan’s first reader. “He’s so good at seeing what the story needs,” she says. “He’s honest, but in a kind way.” The undead remain a part of their relationship. You can imagine dinner conversations in the Ryan/Davis house: How could you quarantine a continent? If zombies attack, where would you flee for safety? The practical among us might point out that Ryan wasted a good bit of money on a law degree. She doesn’t see it that way. Because if she hadn’t gone to law school, she wouldn’t have met Davis. She wouldn’t have discovered zombies. She’d have no book. So of course she dedicated her first book to her fiance. The line seems cryptic — unless you know their story. To J.P., it says, “for giving me the world.”

In each of Linda Fairstein’s legal thrillers, the author gracefully melds New York City’s hidden spots and history into a contemporary novel, showing how little has changed in crime and the ways that people treat each other. This theme is well served in Fairstein’s 12th novel featuring New York City Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper, who specializes in sex crimes. A top-notch plot and realistic situations make “Hell Gate” a first-class tale of New York and the people who built it and now control it. Politics, sexual trafficking — age-old issues that never go away — and New York’s historical, tax-supported mansions provide a sturdy foundation for “Hell Gate.” The novel’s title refers to the treacherous narrow strait located near Gracie Mansion, the home for New York City’s mayor. In “Hell Gate”, Alex is called to the scene of a rusted freighter that has run aground on a sandbar near Rockaway Beach. The captain has abandoned his vessel, which is loaded with human cargo from the Ukraine. The cops and rescue personnel deal with the hundreds of survivors as well as those who drowned while escaping the cargo ship.

While many men were on board, coming to America for jobs, so were a number of young women, who were being forced into sexual slavery. The cops also are dealing with Congressman Ethan Leighton, whose rising career may be on the skids after he fled the scene of a car accident to cover up an extramarital affair. Fairstein seamlessly balances glimpses of New York City history that parallel the contemporary events of “Hell Gate.” The horrific importing of young women later forced into prostitution seems ripped from the headlines, but the practice is centuriesold. The 21st century didn’t spawn politicians cheating on their wives or denying parenthood, nor are politicial corruption and slush funds modern inventions. All that’s changed, Fairstein shows, is the way these events unfurl. Each outing with Alex brings new insight, and Fairstein is careful not to make her a super sleuth; she is a prosecutor whose job takes her behind the scenes of crimes but, as in real life, the detectives do the investigating. Alex’s close friendship with the two detectives continues to be at the heart of Fairstein’s novels.

Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’ gets its due in latest history book “The Moment Of ‘Psycho’: How Alfred Hitchcock Taught America to Love Murder” by David Thomson (Basic Books, 192 pgs., $22.95)

By Peter M. Gianotti Newsday

“Psycho,” the mother of all chillers, turns 50 this year, Oscar-less but golden. Film historian David Thomson’s anniversary tribute to the breakthrough movie of the ’60s unspools with insight and affection. Thomson does go on some curious tangents and silly stretches. But “The Moment of ‘Psycho’” makes you want to revisit the landmark shocker. Alfred Hitchcock received his last, fruitless Academy Award nomination for “Psycho.” Anthony Perkins’ unsettling, campy performance and Bernard Herrmann’s peerless shriek of a musical score were, of course, ignored. At least

Janet Leigh got nominated for supporting actress. Top movie honors went to “The Apartment,” Billy Wilder’s tart comedy-drama and ’50s farewell. Another Best Picture nominee: John Wayne’s comic-book epic, “The Alamo.” “Psycho” followed a series of Technicolor triumphs by Hitchcock, including “Rear Window,” “North by Northwest” and his dark masterpiece, “Vertigo.” None, however, prepared viewers for this sardonic black-and-white frenzy, which toyed with Production Code boundaries for sex and violence. Starting with a voyeuristic, post-coital scene, “Psycho” proceeds mercilessly to a crime, an escape and the final check-in at the Bates Motel. Janet Leigh’s unthinkably early exit, in cinema’s coldest shower scene, required 78 pieces of film in 45 seconds, plus chocolate sauce. Enjoy Thomson’s book; watch the DVD.

THE CRUELTIES OF WAR EXPLORED ...

China

Culture, history connect in graphic Korean tale “The Surrendered: A Novel” by Chang-rae Lee (Riverhead, 472 pgs., $26.95)

By Susan Salter Reynolds Los Angeles Times

You could say that Chang-rae Lee explores Asian-American identity in his novels. You could say he explores the legacies of war, or the roots of betrayal, but none of these grand statements, one suspects, accurately describes the inspiration, the grace behind the books he writes. This is an author who pulls at threads — from his own past, from his ancestors’ and from his cultural memory. He weaves them, quite literally, chapter by chapter, into stories. Born in Korea, Lee grew up in New York’s bucolic Westchester County. He teaches at Princeton. He is driven by a need to understand the sum of his parts — the joy and the suffering of the characters that inhabit his imagination. In his four novels — “Native Speaker” (1995), “A Gesture Life” (1999), “Aloft” (2004) and now “The Surrendered” — we see the weaver at work. All fall in that enviable niche we call literary fiction. This means the reader can have it all — good writing, memorable characters and imaginative, fast-paced plot. You don’t have to choose between profound and thrilling. “The Surrendered” is powered by injustice, even rage. From the very first chapter, “Korea, 1950,” in which we meet 11-year-old June, one of thousands of orphaned refugees, we feel suffocated, our own lives shortened, by the lunacy, the cruelty of war. June is traveling south on the cold roof of a train with her 7year-old twin siblings, a boy and a girl. Their father has been publicly beaten and shot; their older brother has disappeared; their older sister has been raped and killed, along with their mother, before their eyes. When the train stops short, the younger children are thrown off; the little girl dies, and one of the boy’s feet is gone. Lee has said this scene comes

from his father, who was 12 when he fled from the North during the Korean War and whose younger brother was killed when he was accidentally thrown from atop a refugee train. There had not been enough room inside for the boys. The book hurtles forward 36 years. June, diagnosed with stomach cancer, is closing her antiques business in New York to hunt for her son, who disappeared in Europe after his high school graduation eight years earlier. June’s husband has died, and she is packing up her life to find both Nicholas and his father, Hector, a soldier in the Korean War who had met June after her family had been killed and took her to an orphanage, where he would work for several years before returning to the States with her. Each character in “The Surrendered” has a childhood filled with emotional anguish and violence. Hector, who lives in Ilion, N.Y., where he grew up, is haunted by the tragic death of his father and by the many civilians (including children) whose deaths he caused. Sylvie is a fragile, nurturing woman with an opium addiction whose minister husband runs the orphanage. She wants children but is unable to have them. In a state of

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 21, 2010 F5

desperation and loneliness, she has an affair with Hector. All of Lee’s characters are hungry — for food, for love, for some peace and safety. Many are orphans; all are refugees — that capacious metaphor for life. The often graphic violence in the novel gives it a strange, uneven heat. It’s possible that readers consume violent passages more quickly — the eye moves through a scene filled with torture faster than an equally, if not more important, scene in which the theft of a book reveals something about the character who stole it. We look away, as many of Lee’s characters cannot. The novel ricochets among the 1950s (Korea), the 1930s (Manchuria) and the 1980s (New York and Italy). It rolls downhill, in the way that reunions between lovers or parents and children create a kind of gravity; the still, safe point that pulls us toward June’s imagined reunion with her son. Characters grow and grapple with memories and encounter fresh violence. The tumors in June’s stomach appear in her dreams as “wards of her nursery and she was naming them as she would children, these eager clumps in her bones, in her lymph nodes, speckles on her liver and lungs, all racing to see which of them would bring her its final gift: You’re darlings, she said to them, in a warm, matronly voice.” What makes this a big novel is not just its range, its historic scope or the number of lives gathered in its pages, but that their memories do not entirely explain the course of their lives. There is a little window open in each for will, for changing history. Sometimes it is slammed shut and the character must pick him- or herself up off the ground, bruised and bleeding to fight the genetic code, the bloody tide of vengeance and regret. Sometimes Lee’s characters walk right through that slender opening in the fabric of fate. He could not hold them down, even if he wanted to.

These Tudors are not remotely nice

Bob Morris’ ‘Baja Florida’ is a nail-biter

This was a huge redistribution of wealth, the biggest in the history of England other than the Norman Conquest. Hoelterhoff: Even so, Henry proceeded to ruin the country financially. Meyer: It is almost unbelievable — financial irresponsibility on such a scale. He blew it all. Hoelterhoff: And he slaughters large numbers of people often for just thought crimes. Was he out of his mind? He even orders someone cooked because he might have, accidentally or as a joke, added a laxative to a meal. Meyer: Yes. Cooked up a big vat of hot oil and just dipped him in it; makes the toes crawl. Hoelterhoff: We have such a glittering image of the Tudor court with dancing and courtiers, it’s shocking to read that living standards dropped to medieval times around 1350. Meyer: Yes, measured in what an ordinary person’s wages would buy. Hoelterhoff: When and why did drawing and quartering get to be such a popular form of execution? Every few pages, some poor guy is getting his entrails removed. Meyer: It is an English invention, started in the 1300s by Edward I, but not used on his own people. Here’s the shocker: It wasn’t outlawed until the 19th century, though after 1820 you couldn’t quarter anyone while he or she was still alive. Hoelterhoff: If you had to sum up Elizabeth in a word. Meyer: One word that pops into my mind: selfish. You have to give the woman credit. She inherited the throne at a dangerous, difficult time and she held on to it for 45 years. But she repeatedly showed through her life that she cared for little except her own survival. Even on her death bed, she wouldn’t say who she wanted to succeed her.

“Baja Florida” by Bob Morris (Minotaur, 288 pgs., $24.99)

Continued from F1 China has become the world’s largest auto market, and General Motors has a large and growing auto research center in Shanghai. The country is also the biggest market for desktop computers and has the most Internet users. Intel has opened research labs in Beijing for semiconductors and server networks. Not just drawn by China’s markets, Western companies are also attracted to China’s huge reservoirs of cheap, highly skilled engineers — and the subsidies offered by many Chinese cities and regions, particularly for green energy companies. Now, Pinto said, researchers from the United States and Europe have to be ready to move to China if they want to do cutting-edge work on solar manufacturing because the new Applied Materials complex here is the only research center that can fit an entire solar panel assembly line. “If you really want to have an impact on this field, this is just such a tremendous laboratory,” he said. Xi’an — a city about 600 miles southwest of Beijing known for the discovery nearby of 2,200-year-old terra cotta warriors — has 47 universities and other institutions of higher learning, churning out engineers with master’s degrees who can be hired for $730 a month. On the other side of Xi’an from Applied Materials sits Thermal Power Research Institute, China’s world-leading laboratory on cleaner coal. The company has just licensed its latest design to Future Fuels in the United States. The American company plans to pay about $100 million to import from China a 130-foot-high maze of equipment that turns coal into a gas before burning it. This method reduces toxic pollution and makes it easier to capture and sequester gases like carbon dioxide under ground. Future Fuels will ship the equipment to Pennsylvania and have Chinese engineers teach American workers how to assemble and operate it. Small clean-energy companies are headed to China, too. NatCore Technology of Red Bank, N.J., recently discovered a way to make solar panels much thinner, reducing the energy and toxic materials

An employee walks past solar panels at the Applied Materials complex in Xi’an, China. The labs will become fully operational later this year. required to manufacture them. American companies did not even come look at the technology, so NatCore reached a deal with a consortium of Chinese companies to finish developing its invention and mass-produce it in Changsha, China. “These other countries — China, Taiwan, Brazil — were all over us,” said Chuck Provini, the company’s chief executive. President Barack Obama has often spoken about creating clean-energy jobs in the United States. But China has shown the political will to do so, said Pinto, 49, who is also Applied Materials’ executive vice president for solar systems and flat-panel displays. Locally, the Xi’an city government sold a 75-year land lease to Applied Materials at a deep discount and is reimbursing the company for roughly a quarter of the lab complex’s operating costs for five years, said Gang Zou, the site’s general manager. The two labs, the first of their kind anywhere in the world, are each bigger than two American football fields. Applied Materials continues to develop the electronic guts of its complex machines at laboratories in the United States and Europe. But putting all the machines together and figuring out processes to make them work in unison will be done in Xi’an. The two labs, one on top of the other, will become operational once they are fully outfitted late this year. Applied Materials has built a 360-employee operation here in Xi’an after announcing an 18-month program last year to reduce employment by 10 to 12 percent, or 1,300 to 1,500 jobs, including layoffs in the United States and Europe. Pinto said that the company was readjusting its work force as manufacturing shifted to Asia, but that the Xi’an facility involved a new approach to researching the design of an

entire assembly line and was not replacing laboratories elsewhere. Pinto is a well-known figure in Silicon Valley in his own right. While still a doctoral student at Stanford in the early 1980s, he wrote the first widely used two-dimensional computer simulation of how semiconductors work. This allowed engineers to test each one on a computer before building prototypes, shortening the semiconductor development process. Later, he became a celebrated researcher at Bell Labs. With China’s economy gaining strength, Pinto and his wife, then living in Santa Clara, began insisting in 2005 that their sons study Chinese once a week. Applied Materials has greater challenges, including fighting technological theft, a chronic problem in China. The company has taken measures, including sealing its computers’ ports here, to prevent the easy use of flash drives to record data. Employees are not allowed to take computers from the building without special permission, and an elaborate system of computer passwords and electronic door keys limits access to certain technological secrets. But none of that changes the sense that tectonic shifts are under way. When Xie Lina, a 26-year-old Applied Materials engineer here, was asked recently whether China would play a big role in clean energy in the future, she was surprised by the question. “Most of the graduate students in China are chasing this area,” she said. “Of course, China will lead everything.”

Henry VIII and daughter Elizabeth are just two of the sadists animating the lively new history by G.J. Meyer, “The Tudors: The Complete Story of England’s Most Notorious Dynasty.” The king died, a suppurating blob, in 1547, but not before chopping the heads off two wives and thumbing his nose at the pope in pursuit of a male heir. Meyer is splendid describing the many ways Henry raged against his countrymen and women, destroying the Catholic Church of England, stealing its property and killing anyone who stood in his way (except for first wife, Catherine, who survived his sneaky attempts to cast her aside). Nor is Elizabeth I painted in the flattering colors she demanded from her smarmy poet publicists. Meyer spoke to me from his home in Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, England. Hoelterhoff: Why didn’t Henry arrange to have Catherine pushed out a castle window? Meyer: No one can say for sure why not, but she probably had a substantial hold over him. When they married, he was barely 18 and she, then 23, came from a much grander background. And it was good marriage for a long time with a lot of affection and residual respect. The other factor that probably had some weight is that she was a very popular queen. It would have been a dangerous thing to be suspected of putting her down. Hoelterhoff: Would an annulment have changed English history? England would not have broken with Rome, for instance. Meyer: An early annulment, I would guess, and the whole thing might have turned out differently. But once (Thomas) Cranmer was there as his adviser, he showed Henry how much money would be gotten out of the church.

While most Florida mystery writers keep their novels tightly focused on the Sunshine State, Bob Morris takes a different route. Each of the Orlando author’s five novels starts in Central Florida and then quickly moves to the Bahamas. To those of us who live down here, the Bahamas often seems like an extension of the Sunshine State. It certainly seems that way to Zack Chasteen, who sees the Bahamas, spread over more than 3,000 islands, cays and inlets, as “Baja Florida” and the perfect place to hide. Zack, a new father and husband, reluctantly leaves his family in Central Florida to find the missing daughter of his old friend Mickey Ryser, who is dying. Mickey, a millionaire, wants to spend his last days on his private island in the Bahamas with his daughter, Jen, whom he hasn’t seen in 20 years and with whom he’s only recently been in contact. Now Jen is missing, and no one has heard from her or the college friends who were making the trek to the Bahamas in her new sailboat. “Baja Florida” works as a nail-biting thriller as well as a novel about loyalty and friendship. Morris keeps the action brisk as he island hops throughout the Bahamas. Zack is an appealing hero, an all-around nice guy until those he cares about are threatened. But in this day of iPhones, Facebook and YouTube, it seems unlikely that no one seems to have a recent photo of Jen. Still, the action is solid enough to make “Baja Florida” a smooth glide across the Atlantic.

B U S I N E SS IN BRIEF Low 30-year rates might not last long Mortgage rates held below the 5 percent threshold for the third straight week as the Federal Reserve prepares to end a program that has kept rates at or near record lows. The average rate on a 30-year fixed rate mortgage edged up to 4.96 percent last week from 4.95 percent a week earlier, the mortgage finance company Freddie Mac said Thursday. Rates dropped to a record low of 4.71 percent in December and have hovered around 5 percent since, kept down by the Fed’s $1.25 trillion program to buy up mortgage securities issued by Freddie Mac and sibling company Fannie Mae. The Fed has said this program would end March 31. But some analysts fear that mortgage rates could rise. That could weaken the fragile recovery in housing and the overall economy. Still, the Fed has left the door open to extending the program if the economy weakens.

Cruise industry sees surprise resurgence After the worst-ever downturn for the industry in 2009, cruise bookings are going up. Cruise lines are starting to raise prices from the deeprecession bargain basement. And a few companies are even feeling bullish enough to start ordering new ships after a dry spell of nearly two years. “We think we’re hitting on all cylinders,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line CEO. The caveat: “Things are improving, but improving off a pretty miserable 2009 from a pricing standpoint.” To be sure, the cruise lines face a long journey to get back to the prices of early 2008, before the financial crisis turned many people’s vacations into loading up the car and driving to stay with relatives. In 2009, a cruise berth fetched 14 percent less per day than the year before at the two biggest cruise operators. But many consumers are more confident about their finances. If last year was the time for “staycations,” this year, at least the cruise lines hope, people are feeling long overdue for a getaway. — From wire reports

No recovery soon, economist warns, without economic diversity By Andrew Moore The Bulletin

A dramatic improvement in home sales in the final three months of 2009 helped the Central Oregon Business Index stay flat for the fourth quarter that ended Dec. 31, likely signaling the region’s long economic decline has bottomed out, said Timothy Duy, a University of Oregon economist and the index’s author. The index stayed at 105.7 in the final quarter of the year, same as the thirdquarter figure, which was revised downward due to fewer jobs than initially reported. The index is down 16.4 percent from the same quarter a year ago. Duy, who authors the index exclusively for The Bulletin, cautioned that while the fourth-quarter index shows signs for optimism, it’s largely built on a bump in housing sales sparked by the

Editor’s note: The Bulletin has partnered with the University of Oregon’s College of Arts and Sciences and Department of Economics to produce the Central Oregon Business Index. The index provides a regular snapshot of the region’s economy using economic models consistent with national standards. The index, exclusive to The Bulletin, appears quarterly in the Sunday Business section.

federal $8,000 first-time homebuyers tax credit. Originally slated to expire Nov. 31, the tax credit was extended by Congress through April 30. Duy believes the credit’s success in driving home sales is temporary, however, as the many buyers who rushed to

take advantage of the tax credit in the fall likely pulled momentum from future demand. “Housing is still afflicted by a fundamental problem of oversupply and federal stimulus efforts winding down in the second half of the year,” Duy said. Kathy Ragsdale, the CEO of the Central Oregon Association of Realtors, also credits the tax credit for the bump in fourth-quarter sales but believes growth will continue through 2010, albeit more slowly. “I’ve noticed more people putting their houses on the market, and I don’t think prices will go any lower than they have, (so) I think we’ll see a very gradual swing, with 2011 looking to be very nice as far as home sales,” Ragsdale said. “Prices will go up, but a huge appreciation in prices isn’t happening anytime soon.” See Index / G5

“I’ve been predicting it for a couple of months that we were going to come to this point and we’ve seemed to reach it. Barring an unexpected new downturn in the economy, we seem to have hit the low point.” — Timothy Duy, University of Oregon economist and author of the index

92.7 ad hasn’t made a noise yet — but, broadly, broadcasters near and far still have reason to hush up By David Holley

The Associated Press file photo

The Bulletin

A recent ad broadcast on Bend radio station 92.7 FM described a musician as “damn good.” Had that broadcast happened a generation or two ago, it may have stirred some controversy. But today, using the word “damn” in a radio or television broadcast is unlikely to draw any attention. “Frankly, I think the genie is out of the bottle when it comes to use of certain language in our culture,” said Clay Calvert, a faculty member at the University of Florida and First Amendment expert. “Damn” has become, to some extent, an accepted term in everyday vernacular, making it unlikely that a radio listener or TV viewer would file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission, Calvert said. To land a fine from the FCC for using inappropriate language on public airwaves, the FCC says a broadcaster must use language that — in very broad terms — would be considered patently offensive by an average person using contemporary community standards.

Many calls for avoiding a repeat bank bailout But credibility problem arises as Senate debates new regulation By Sewell Chan New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The idea of requiring giant banks to develop contingency plans that would spell out their orderly demise in a financial crisis gained support last week from major international regulators. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, a forum for international cooperation on financial regulation, endorsed the idea, while Lawrence Summers, the director of the U.S. National

Economic Council, and Daniel Tarullo, the U.S. Federal Reserve governor who oversees the central bank’s regulatory duties, spoke in favor of it. The endorsements come as the Senate debates a sweeping overhaul of financial regulation aimed, among other things, at buffering the economy from the kind of systemic threats that companies like Lehman Brothers and American International Group posed in 2008. But it is not clear whether such contingency plans, also known as living wills, will be worth more than the paper they are written on. See Bailout / G3

Recipe for a happy staff

E

mployees are working harder for less, they feel unappreciated … and job security? Forget about it. No wonder a recent Conference Board survey showed only 45 percent of Americans were satisfied with their jobs, the lowest since the survey began in 1987. That’s why tbd advertising of Bend is such a breath of fresh air. Its employees seem to love working there, and they apparently said as much in confidential surveys done as part of Oregon Business magazine’s annual measurement of workplace satisfaction. Tbd was the only company east of the Cascades to make the magazine’s annual list of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon.” There are many good companies here that didn’t make the list or participate in the survey — 303 companies and nearly 20,000 of their workers participated, according to the magazine — but tbd is clearly doing something right. Figuring other companies might like to know what tbd’s doing, much of it for little or no cost, I asked Paul Evers, tbd’s founder, president and creative director, to share some insights, then I queried a few workers. First, tbd hasn’t been immune from economic challenges. It laid off one person last year (it has 13 full- and part-time employees, including Evers and two other partners, René Mitchell and Frank Gjata) and had to cut employees’ salaries 20 percent, effective last June, by eliminating one work day. But tbd is participating in the state’s Work Share program, so employees get some of that lost pay back through unemployment. And when tbd returns to a five-day week, employees will get back 1.5 times the pay they lost in the form of stock options in the company. The company had ended every Friday at about 4-4:30 p.m. to have beers in the office (two clients are breweries). But “Beer Fridays” didn’t stop with the shortened work week. Now it’s “Beer Thursdays.” To trim costs, tbd replaced monthly birthday lunches with in-house potlucks that have proved more popular as employees share their culinary creations. Staff get free yoga, two paid personal days every six months (in addition to regular vacation) and what Evers calls a “really good health insurance plan” that includes vision, dental and alternative care — all with reasonable copays. People’s lives matter at tbd. Tbd’s vision doesn’t revolve around sales volume or size, but employee fulfillment and opportunity, which translates to the work they do for clients, Evers said. There’s a focus on family and personal time to ensure a healthy home/work balance. The first hour of every Monday morning production meeting is devoted entirely to staff talking about their weekend, according to Kevin Smyth, account manager. It’s part of getting to know each other on a personal level, building relationships and nourishing what Evers stresses is a “team, collaborative model” of working. That was apparent Wednesday when the staff, to celebrate tbd’s 13th anniversary, created a large painting and shared their thoughts afterward on what the collaborative process meant to them. Art is part of tbd’s cool second-floor loft space downtown, a physical setting that’s inspiring for employees. Tbd hosts artists’ receptions each month for the First Friday Art Walk to keep the space fresh and bring in new energy. A believer in play helping to stimulate creativity, Evers organizes staff games every few weeks. For example, he might take everyone bowling for a couple of hours or organize a game of charades. Interestingly, the pay cuts didn’t seem to bother employees I met. They cite compensation in different, meaningful ways. “There’s so much support and encouragement,” said Alice LeBlond, production manager. If someone makes a mistake, “we don’t dwell, we don’t blame” — it’s rectified and people move on, she said. Angela Reid, associate creative director, left tbd for another job, but recently returned. She missed the “living collaboration” that other companies talk about but don’t always practice. Evers is careful to listen, pause, think and collaborate, Reid said. “It’s just not the work at all costs.” Employees said Evers also genuinely cares about their personal lives. “He hugs all of us all of the time,” LeBlond said, and he says “thank you” at the end of the day. Receptionist Jeanie Morton loves what she calls a team and family environment. All this seems to translate to exceptional work. On March 12, tbd won “Best of Show” at the annual Drake Awards, which recognize top work by area advertising agencies. It has won Best of Show eight of the last nine years.

P ay less, get more, and deficit builds A N A LY S I S By David Leonhardt New York Times News Service

As a society gets richer, its tax rates tend to rise. This idea is known as Wagner’s Law, named for the 19th-century economist who came up with it. Citizens of richer societies generally prefer more government services, Adolf Wagner explained. With their basic needs met, they want a military to protect them, good schools for their children, comfortable retirement for the elderly, medical care even when it isn’t profitable and a strong social safety net. Sure enough, the United States followed this path for most of the last century. In 1900, federal taxes amounted to just 2 percent of gross domestic product. By 2000, the share had risen to 21 percent. Over the last couple of decades, though, we have repealed Wagner’s Law — or, more to the point, only partly repealed it. Taxes are no longer rising. They fell to 18 percent of GDP in 2008 and, because of the recession, to a 60year low of 15.1 percent last year. Yet our desire for government services just keeps growing. We added a prescription drug benefit to Medicare. Farm subsidies are sacrosanct. Social Security is the third rail of politics. This disconnect is, far and away, the main reason for our huge budget problems. Yes, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the recession and the stimulus have all added to the deficit. But they are minor issues in the long run. By 2020, government spending is projected to equal 26 percent (and rising) of GDP, mostly because of Medicare and Social Security. Taxes are on pace to equal just 19 percent. Congressional Republicans recently named six members of a deficit commission that President Barack Obama created last month. In all, the commission will have 10 Democratic members and eight Republicans. It is scheduled to issue its recommendations late this year. “By any reasonable projection, we’re on an utterly unsustainable path,” Peter Orszag, the White House budget director, said in a recent interview. “And the fiscal commission, while not guaranteed to succeed, offers the best hope of getting ahead of this problem before it becomes a true crisis.” The commission can succeed, of course, only if it comes up with solutions that Congress and the White House accept. For now, political leaders in both parties are still in denial about what the solution will entail. To be fair, so, perhaps, is much of the public. What needs to happen? Spending will need to be cut, and taxes will need to rise, and they won’t need to rise just on households making more than $250,000, as Obama has suggested. A solution that relied only on taxes would muzzle economic growth. To cover the costs of future spending — the retirement of the baby boomers and everything else — federal taxes would have to rise by almost 50 percent, immediately and permanently, according to a recent analysis by the economists Alan Auerbach and William Gale. A solution that combined spending cuts and tax increases would not need to be ruinous — or start in the next couple of years, when unemployment is likely to remain high. But, just as Wagner pointed out, tax increases are not inherently bad. Done right, they do not even have to reduce economic growth by much. In recent years, economic research has suggested that moderate changes in the tax law don’t actually have a huge impact on growth. You don’t need econometrics to grasp this, either. Just look at the past 20 years. Economic growth after Bill Clinton’s tax increases was far more rapid than economic growth after George W. Bush’s tax cuts. Despite the Bush tax cuts, average annual growth over the last decade — even before this Great Recession began — was slower than in any decade since World War II. The biggest hurdle to solving the deficit problem will be politics, not economics. Even if the tax increases and spending cuts

Americans’ desire for government services just keeps growing, even as tax revenues fell to a 60-year low of 15.1 percent of gross domestic product last year. So where does the money come from? don’t need to be ruinous, they will not be popular. On the spending side, health care is easily the biggest item. Not only will many people in their 50s and 60s live into their 80s, but technological advances will make medical care for any individual person much more expensive in the future. A crucial aspect of the final health reform bills, as they stood last week, is that they take early steps toward trying to distinguish between care that makes people healthier and care that does not. These steps, along with some Medicare cuts, are the reason many economists think the bills will reduce the deficit. The bills will also make it easier for Medicare to make further changes in the future. Beyond health care, Social Security benefits could be reduced

for high-income households, and the annual inflation adjustment could be trimmed (making it more accurate, some economists believe). Many corporate subsidies — for agribusinesses and banks, among others — serve no useful economic function. Some military contractors could also stand to be squeezed. Don’t expect that any one program can close the deficit, though. Military spending, for example, already takes up a much smaller share of the budget than a few decades ago, as Douglas Elmendorf, the head of the Congressional Budget Office, said. Without the end of the Cold War, the deficit might have already soared. On taxes, the affluent can stand to pay higher rates than they have. Over the last three decades, they have received both the biggest pretax pay increases and

the biggest tax cuts. But there is not enough money at the top to eliminate the long-term fiscal gap. Households making more than $250,000 pay federal taxes equal to only about 5 percent of GDP. The ideal way to raise taxes for everyone else is not through the income tax code — which can affect people’s incentive to work — but through another means. As Victoria Perry of the International Monetary Fund points out, every industrialized country in the world except Saudi Arabia and the United States has some kind of consumption tax. A modest consumption tax would give households more incentive to save and could raise significant revenue. Another option is to reduce some big deductions, like the one for mortgage interest. Congressional Republicans have shown little willingness to consider any tax increases, and Obama has shown no indication of breaking his $250,000-and-under pledge. Voters, meanwhile, tend to oppose government spending in general while supporting the government programs that the spending pays for. But a lot can happen in a few years. For one thing, interest rates on government bonds are likely to rise, making the need to reduce the deficit more pressing. “It doesn’t seem like policymakers are currently afraid of the bond market,” Orszag says, “and I wish that weren’t the case.” Someday soon, they may have to be.

Immigrants become vulnerable as bosses shortchange workers By N.C. Aizenman

Snapshot of problems

— Daniel Tarullo, U.S. Federal Reserve governor

Continued from G1 Democrats and Republicans agree that taxpayers should never again have to bail out financial institutions that have become so large and interconnected that they are deemed “too big to fail.” But economists, lawyers and policymakers are uncertain about how to handle the problem in a way that is sufficiently credible so as to deter the kinds of risk-taking that brought the financial system to the brink of disaster. The Washington Post

Oscar Martinez, 54, of Guatemala, is trying to track down his former employer so he can get two weeks of pay he says he is owed. He is shown at a wage-theft workshop in Washington, D.C., sponsored by Jobs With Justice.

“If I let it go, then it means I’ve been intimidated. If I let it go, it means there’s no justice.” — Luis Colli, a day laborer from Mexico, who is seeking help to retrieve more than $2,000 he says he is owed from a contractor in D.C.

Carmakers including Nissan, General Motors Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. are preparing electric cars in response to higher oil prices, government rules on auto emissions and concerns that such emissions contribute to climate change. But Nissan’s North American unit decided against battery-

pack leases for the Leaf in the United States. “The battery and car will be transacted together,” said Katherine Zachary, a spokeswoman for Nissan North America. “If customers lease the car, they’ll have only one monthly payment, and if they buy it, they’ll only have one payment. We do expect more people to lease than buy.” Leaf production starts this year in Japan. The automaker is also preparing to build the small car in the United States and the United Kingdom. Nissan promises that the lithium-ion battery model will be able to go 100 miles on a full charge.

Electric push

Lithium-ion batteries are the most expensive part for electric vehicles, at about $1,000 a kilowatt-hour, and most such vehicles will have capacity of about 20 kilowatt-hours, according to General Motors Vice Chairman Robert Lutz. Leasing will let customers avoid the batteries’ depreciating value and disposal or resale, according to Nissan, whose new Leaf is an electric car.

Nissan, seeking to lead the emerging market for electric autos, said it expects most customers will lease rather than buy battery packs for the vehicles. Leases will account for the “vast majority” of batteries for models such as Nissan’s Leaf, Jonathan Dixon, the company’s business-development manager for zero-emission strategic planning, said Friday in London. He didn’t give a specific figure. “With leasing there’s less risk for the customer,” said Dixon, who was attending the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit. Nissan, Japan’s third-largest automaker, plans to deliver the first electric Leaf hatchbacks late this year.

But as Tarullo said Thursday, the goals of financial stability and market discipline are sometimes in tension. The issue does not easily lend itself to partisan divisions: it was under President George W. Bush, a Republican, that the federal government, fearing a financial panic after the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, swooped in to rescue some giant financial companies. Even so, there have been some differences. Democrats have been inclined to have the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which has a long history of arranging bank failures, play a similar role for large financial institutions, and they would like to see large banks pay into a fund that would be used to liquidate a failing company. Republicans would like large financial companies to go through normal bankruptcy proceedings as much as possible, and they fear that a fund would symbolize a standing, if implicit, offer of a government bailout. The two members of the Senate Banking Committee who have been working most closely on the issue, Mark Warner, D-Va., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said Thursday they were in broad agreement

For electric car batteries, Nissan bets on leasing

“In light of what has happened over the past two years, it is imperative that governments convince markets that they can and will put large financial firms into a resolution process rather than bail out its creditors and shareholders,” Tarullo said Thursday night in a speech in Armonk, N.Y. “Yet no one can guarantee that future resolutions of systemically important firms will proceed smoothly or predictably.” Summers, who said an overhaul of financial rules was a priority of the Obama administration, described “resolution authority” as one of six major goals the legislation should achieve. “It is wrong that taxpayers thousands of miles from Wall Street should be at risk because our financial system gives authorities no choice but to commit taxpayer money or to accept collapse and chaos,” Summers said. “Without the prospect of failure, it is difficult to contemplate the application of market discipline.” He added: “That is why we must develop a means to manage the failure of financial institutions. That is why we must insist that institutions go through the exercise of planning for their dissolution in the event of crisis before a crisis comes. Our financial system will not be fail-safe until it is safe for failure.” The 44-page final report of the Cross-Border Bank Resolution Group of the Basel Com-

Market discipline

on how the “resolution authority” should work, even if points of dispute remained. Resolution should be a “last resort” and “so painful that no rational management team” would ever prefer it to bankruptcy, Warner said in a talk at the National Press Club. Summers, who spoke before Warner and Corker, called for higher capital and liquidity requirements for banks, as well as strengthened regulation, a fee on the largest and most leveraged firms, and restrictions on risktaking by banks.

“The capacity of volunteers and nonprofit staff to be able to follow through on these cases is going to be limited given how big the problem is,” Baris said. “Having workers themselves be at the front line is the best way to be effective.” The magnitude of the challenge was evident as soon as she and the workers entered the wine shop. Colli began a hesitant explanation of the purpose of their visit, which another organizer translated into English. To Colli’s relief, the owner of the wine shop responded with a sympathetic smile. The contractor had cheated him as well, he said, charging $35,000 above the initial bid before leaving the job unfinished. “I’m trying to find him, too,” he said. But he had little additional information to offer: a bank account number and the name and phone number of the contractor’s accountant. “OK. It’s something,” Baris said. “Possibly the police can use this information to find him.” If they can locate the contractor, the workers can sue in small claims court. Workers who lack the resources or know-how to pursue a legal case also can go to the Wage and Hour divisions of federal and state labor departments. In D.C., staff members first try to get employers to pay voluntarily. Failing that, they can refer cases to the attorney general

for prosecution. In all five cases, Guerra has brought to trial since she started at the D.C. Employment Justice Center in May, the employer has chosen to settle at the last minute. However, as the only lawyer on hand to litigate them, Guerra must turn away far more workers than she can help. As for the Wage and Hour offices, worker advocates complain they often move so slowly they are ineffectual. Jobs With Justice organizers in D.C. have decided to pursue alternative options when possible, inspired by similar efforts by groups in San Francisco and Austin, Texas. Since late fall, they have trained 11 workers from an independent association of day laborers called the Union de Trabajadores to act as the intake staff of a walk-in wage-theft workshop. At a recent session here, the cases included that of Oscar Martinez, 54, of Guatemala. He had been working for a small refuse pickup company for three years when the owner announced that, because of a slowdown in business, he would have to cut Martinez’s pay slightly. Martinez accepted, but shortly afterward, the boss disappeared without paying him for the last two weeks. “He used to pick me up at this McDonald’s. But he just stopped showing up,” Martinez said in Spanish. “I’ve been calling him and calling him, but he never answers.” Socorro Garcia, one of the workers trained to do intake, wrote the details of Martinez’s case on a form. “I felt so sad, because I have experienced the same thing,” Garcia said afterward. “I know what it feels like. That’s why I’m trying to help.”

Managing failure

mittee called for “firm-specific contingency planning” that would help the most interconnected financial companies survive a crisis or, if necessary, be dismantled in an orderly fashion, without risking a global financial crisis. Nout Wellink, president of the Dutch central bank and chairman of the Basel Committee, said its recommendations made “meaningful progress toward addressing systemic risk and the ‘too big to fail’ problem.”

NE

At the District of Columbia’s Office of Wage-Hour, which administers the district’s laws regarding wages and hours, the number of workers seeking help to recover stolen wages rose to 523 last year, an increase of more than 20 percent from 2008. And at the D.C. Employment Justice Center, a nonprofit legal clinic, the spike was almost as great, reaching 317 in that time, said Lisa Guerra, the lawyer who handles such cases. The Virginia office of the nonprofit Legal Aid Justice Center just added a third lawyer to help handle its 300 annual wage-theft cases, said staff attorney Claudia Henriquez. Jobs With Justice, a national campaign for workers’ rights, and allied groups have responded by training low-skilled workers to help one another gather information needed to mount legal cases. Failing that, they plan to try more creative tactics: picketing recalcitrant contractors in hopes of shaming them or asking larger companies or government entities that employ “bad bosses” to pressure them to pay up.

“In light of what has happened over the past two years, it is imperative that governments convince markets that they can and will put large financial firms into a resolution process rather than bail out its creditors and shareholders. Yet no one can guarantee that future resolutions of systemically important firms will proceed smoothly or predictably.”

Bailout

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — On a recent Saturday morning, a group of Latino men wearing paint-spattered jeans and grim expressions strode through a Washington neighborhood in search of the contractor who they say had cheated them. He’d hired them to remodel a wine shop in November and December but paid a fraction of what he had promised before disappearing. Now they were hoping the shop owner could offer clues as to the contractor’s whereabouts. Luis Colli, 33, a day laborer from Mexico, said he was owed more than $2,000 after more than a month’s work. His wife back in Mexico urged him to “let this go,” Colli said in Spanish, sighing wearily as the group reached the wine shop. “But I told her: ‘If I let it go, then it means I’ve been intimidated. If I let it go, it means there’s no justice.’” Mackenzie Baris, lead organizer with D.C. Jobs With Justice, nodded encouragingly. The morning’s mission was among the first steps in a new effort the nonprofit group has launched to fight what appears to be a growing trend of employers skipping out on wages. There are signs that the recession has prompted more employers to shortchange their workers, either by failing to pay the promised amount or by offering less than minimum wage in the first place. Construction, restaurant and janitorial workers appear particularly vulnerable, especially if they are immigrants who don’t speak English or lack legal status.

The ilooks at nine variables that tend to be cyclical in nature. They reflect shifting patterns of the economy and are weighted to account for typical volatility that occurs throughout the year. After seasonal effects are taken out, the variables tend to show the direction of the economy and give the most extensive view of the economy that is available, says Timothy Duy, adjunct professor of economics for the University of Oregon and author of the Central Oregon Business Index. All figures are monthly averages for the quarter and are seasonally adjusted and estimated.

Index Continued from G1 Economically, the sign of a bottom is welcome, Duy said, adding that the fourth-quarter index is the first time the index hasn’t declined since the second quarter of 2006. “I’ve been predicting it for a couple of months that we were going to come to this point and we’ve seemed to reach it,” he said. “Barring an unexpected

new downturn in the economy, we seem to have hit the low point.” Duy and a number of other prominent economists, meanwhile, believe the national economy bottomed in June 2009. Other positive indicators in the fourth-quarter index were a drop in days on market for homes sold and an increase in lodging revenue. Initial unemployment claims also fell. Those gains were offset by a slight decline in passenger activ-

Swearing

“You have to know your listener and what is going to offend them.”

Continued from G1 Even swear words considered worse than “damn” might make it — and have made it — on the radio or TV without any repercussions from the FCC, Calvert said, because the FCC might not be notified. The FCC does not monitor television or radio broadcasts and only investigates consumer complaints. It will only fine broadcasters using public airwaves if the commission determines the language used was obscene, indecent or profane. That doesn’t mean broadcasters are loose-tongued, figuring they won’t get caught. Mike Flanagan, the program manager of Bend Radio Group, which operates 92.7, said “damn” and “hell” are words that have become more accepted in broadcast, but the station may choose not to air those words or other content. “You have to know your listener and what is going to offend them,” Flanagan said, after mentioning that listeners to 92.7, a rock station, might not be as offended by certain words as other people. “You really have to take it on a case-by-case basis.” Radio and television directors also choose not to use foul language because they are wary of the consequences: potential FCC fines and lost advertisers. Through caseby-case analysis, Flanagan said, he decides what he thinks might be considered offensive to a level that could result in either scenario.

FCC guidelines FCC fines are hefty, much more so than they were even five years ago. Before 2006, FCC fines for obscene, indecent or profane content could draw a maximum fine of $32,500 per violation, with a ceiling of $325,000. But in 2005, Congress passed legislation that

upped that fee to $325,000, with a ceiling of $3 million. Complaints to the FCC are reported every quarter, and television- and radio-related complaints range from about 75,000 to more than 200,000 per quarter. When the FCC rules on a complaint about obscenity, indecency or profanity, it considers myriad factors. Primarily, the content is regulated to protect minors from speech that might be considered harmful, said Calvert, the free speech expert. Obscene content would be words that depict sexual content or organs — or what those organs do — in a patently offensive manner meant for shock value, he said. Indecent content is like “Obscene Lite,” Calvert said — typically similar to obscenity, but not necessarily to the level of obscenity, according to the FCC. Profane content is defined by the FCC as “including language so grossly offensive to members of the public who actually hear it as to amount to a nuisance.” Obscene content is never allowed on broadcast television or radio. Indecent or profane content is regulated from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. — hours that children are most likely to be around for broadcasts — leaving an eight-hour window for broadcasters to more freely say what they wish. Most broadcasters, except ones that show a late-night comedy host or a comedy show like “Saturday Night Live,” also will avoid showing indecent or profane content during 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. because, in part, of advertisers that might pull ads, Calvert said. The FCC language rules don’t apply to subscription cable channels, like HBO or Comedy Central,

ity at Redmond Airport and the continuing decline of “help wanted” advertising in The Bulletin and housing permits issued. Duy doesn’t believe a robust recovery is imminent. The employment picture remains weak and tourism spending, a cornerstone of the region’s economy, remains flat. Instead, Duy believes the region will either “bounce along the bottom” or grow slowly until a new economic engine for the region develops.

Society’s standards

Crackdown after 2004 Before the well-known slip-up at the 2004 Super Bowl, Calvert said, indecent or profane content wasn’t as stringently regulated. “It truly was not until the 2004 Janet Jackson incident that we truly saw a crackdown on this type of speech,” he said. Since then, the FCC fines have increased tenfold, and complaints have been more closely reviewed, Calvert said. That doesn’t mean fines are levied left and right, however. The FCC found that Bono, the lead singer of U2, violated profanity standards when he used the F-word after winning an award at the Golden Globes in 2003. Calvert said NBC wasn’t fined for it, however, because the word was a one-time slip-up, used as a descriptor of enthusiasm. In this context, the F-word was not used for anything sexual, Calvert said. That’s why, with the FCC, context is key, he said. The same thing goes for films like “Saving Private Ryan,” which has graphic language but has been allowed to be broadcast on television with its script intact. Because it is showing reality, the FCC has not fined broadcasters that show the film. “In the context of a real war,

Standards of acceptable broadcast language have clearly changed over time, Calvert said, as seen with the word “damn.” It was a controversial word in the 1939 film “Gone With the Wind,” in part because the industry guidelines that regulated films at the time, popularly known as the Hays Code, didn’t allow words like “damn” in films. But, as most people know, the memorable quote, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn,” made it into the movie. The FCC was established in 1934, but first received authority from the Supreme Court to make profanity, indecency or obscenity regulations on language in 1978, Calvert said. That was sparked, in part, by a routine that comedian George Carlin began performing in the 1970s, pointing out the language that is prohibited on television, Calvert said. Flanagan, of Bend Radio Group, said he thinks more coarse language will become socially accepted in coming years, such as s---. Some late-night television shows have already broadcast the word without being fined, he said. The Bulletin’s ethics guidelines prohibit the use of expressions that are considered vulgar or profane, unless they are essential to the meaning of a story. Print media are not subject to FCC regulations. Even though they might be able to use it without being fined, Lee Anderson, news director for television news broadcasts KTVZ and KFXO, said he chooses not to use words like “damn” in broadcasts. “I’d just rather err on the side of not saying it,” Anderson said.

So the challenge is, where does the next source of relatively solid jobs come from? And we don’t know that.” Bend City Councilor Oran Teater, who also sits on the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors, said temporary employment seems to be increasing, which is indicative of a recovery.

S D  Acura MDX wins this sibling rivalry By Warren Brown Special to The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Some siblings fare better than others. Consider the 2010 Acura MDX and Honda Pilot, mid-size sport-utility offspring of the same corporate parent, Honda, sharing the same “light-truck” platform. If cost were no obstacle to customer considerations, the likelihood is that the like-structured Pilot would go begging for buyers. It’s not a matter of the Pilot being a bad SUV. In fact, it’s one of the best available — blessed with Honda’s usually excellent fit and finish, thoughtful interior detail, all-around safety, good road performance and longevity. The Acura MDX has all of the same attributes. But like a favored child at a festive family dinner, it wins more smiles and gobbles up most of the available attention. It looks better than the Pilot, at least on the inside, which, in this case, speaks to tangible reality as opposed to spiritual beauty. The MDX feels richer, more comfortable — especially the MDX Advance/Entertainment version driven for this column. And unlike the Pilot, it does not embrace a middle-class concept of democracy. If you want the MDX, you must accept it with all-wheel drive, which is the only way it’s offered. The Honda Pilot, by comparison, gives you a choice: front-wheeldrive for those of you more in need of better fuel economy than better traction, or all-wheel drive for those of you whose psyches have been permanently damaged by the winter of 2009-10. There’s something else, which seems to happen in all families: The favored child seems to get a tad more of everything. The Acura MDX, for example, gets a larger engine: a 3.7-liter V-6 (300 horsepower/270 foot-pounds of torque) compared with a 3.5-liter V-6 (250 hp/253 ft-lbs of torque) for the all-wheel-drive Honda Pilot. The Honda SUV gets a sixspeed automatic transmission. The Acura model gets a six-speed transmission that can be shifted automatically or manually, plus something else. The Acura MDX comes with what vehicle manufacturers call “descent control,” which is best thought of as “driving all-wheeldrive vehicles downhill for dum-

Here’s the scenario. Your “check engine” light flicks on. After about a week of equivocating, you take the car to the dealer, who says you’ll need to do the 60,000mile service before he can fix your “check engine” light problem. Your car’s a bit over the mileage, say 70,000, but dollars are just too tight right now to do more than an oil change and try to get the “check engine” light fixed. Could the 60,000-mile service turn off that light? Well, dollars must be tight for the dealership as well, if it needs to resort to such upsell tactics. It’s always a good idea to bring a vehicle up to current maintenance status prior to performing an engine performance diagnosis, but being hardnosed about it just isn’t reasonable. Let’s say you have been feeling an occasional engine misfire, and the DTC (diagnostic trouble code) also points this way. If you were due for spark plug replacement, it would make perfect sense to do the maintenance first — with a little luck — fresh spark plugs would fix the check engine light. On the other hand, should the DTC point to a fault in the fuel vapor management system, changing the spark plugs or transmission fluid, or lubing the door latches certainly would have no effect. Retrieving a DTC from a vehicle with an illuminated check engine light is a very quick and simple process using a scan tool. This could be a sophisticated model or a cheapie OBD-II scan tool, which costs less than $100 at the neighborhood auto parts store. Once one obtains the code, a look through the code definition chart — or a

I have experienced something frightening with my ’99 Camry. When I turn at an intersection, I feel the power steering cutting out, and I have to hang on to the steering wheel to complete the turn. The garage mechanic says there’s plenty of fluid and cannot find any reason for this. It doesn’t always happen; it’s when I first start out in the morning after it’s been out all night in our subzero temperatures. The problem may be in the power steering rack-and-pinion assembly, but try dealing with the symptoms first. Add a powersteering fluid treatment like SeaFoam to the reservoir to see if the solvent/cleaning action improves steering performance. If this doesn’t work, the power steering system can be flushed and refilled with fresh fluid, removing debris and contamination in the system. Also, make sure the drive belt for the power steering pump isn’t slipping under full load; this would create similar symptoms.

A:

2010 Acura MDX and Honda Pilot Base price: $42,230 / $27,895 Type: Midsize, front-engine sport utility vehicles Engine: MDX: standard 3.7liter V-6 mated to a six-speed transmission. Pilot: 3.5-liter V-6 linked to a five-speed automatic. Mileage: They get about the same mileage — 16 mpg city, 22 highway, 18 combined. mies.” Simply stated, descent control employs a computerized relationship between engine power, braking and acceleration to prevent a steep decline from becoming a long-term hospitalization or eternal incline. It works well on the MDX. In terms of measurements, the MDX is a wee bit longer (191.6 inches vs. 190.9) and shorter (68.2 inches vs. 72.7) than the Pilot. But their widths are exactly the same at 78.5 inches. The slight differences in measurements give the Acura MDX a longer, sleeker look. But both have somewhat unfortunate faces: a bulldog visage for the Pilot and a Darth Vader-like physiognomy for the MDX. I would like to tell you that there is a marked difference in handling and acceleration between the allwheel-drive MDX and the Pilot. But there isn’t. You can go to jail, the hospital or to the graveyard in either one if you exceed posted speed limits or try to defy the laws

Maintenance mandatory for ‘check engine’ light? By Brad Bergholdt

What to treat first for shaky steering issue

quick Web search — will indicate the general fault area. The definition will read something like this: “P0446: Evaporative Emission Control System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction.” While further diagnosis is clearly necessary (a skilled tech, following a diagnostic flow chart, using appropriate test equipment) one could safely assume the fault has nothing to do with pending maintenance. Retrieving the diagnostic trouble code would be good way to proceed. Do you have a neighbor or friend with a cheapie scan tool? Many auto parts stores will retrieve the code for free, on the assumption you’ll purchase any needed parts from them. In a few cases, such as the vent code above, one could roll the dice, forgoing further diagnosis, and simply renew the fairly inexpensive vent solenoid. In other cases, with a less specific fault description, or expensive parts, it’s wise to do it right and continue with a professional diagnosis. I won’t scold you for being behind on maintenance. Do your best to keep up with what’s most important, such as oil changes, and every six months on these will be fine. Timing belt replacement needs to be taken seriously as well. It is important to have a skilled set of eyes, ears and nose give the car a periodic look-over for potential problems such as belts, hoses, fluid leakage, brake condition, etc. You’ll sleep better knowing all is well, or what next to budget for.

of physics on an icy road. But, all said, I’d much prefer to go in the MDX. It’s just plain nicer than its sister, Pilot. It has more toys — for example, a blind-side warning system to alert you to traffic approaching left or right on the vehicle’s blind sides. Images on the dashboard-mounted screen and the ceiling-mounted rear entertainment screen are clearer, sharper. The premium sound system sounds more, hmm, premium.

The bottom line Until I drove the Acura MDX and Honda Pilot side by side, I couldn’t understand why someone would “waste” money buying

the substantially more expensive MDX over the still quite nice Pilot. Now I can. Complaints: Honda should scrap the techno look of the grilles and front fascias for both the Pilot and MDX. Ride, acceleration and handling: Plush and comfortable for the MDX, quite decent for the Pilot. Acceleration is excellent for both. The MDX feels quicker and more responsive than its sibling. Head-turning quotients: The MDX gets the smiles inside. Outside, both could use help.

Capacities: The MDX has seats for seven, the Pilot eight. It appears that more luxury stuff leaves less space for people. MDX maximum cargo capacity is 84 cubic feet, Pilot 87. MDX fuel capacity is 21 gallons, premium. Pilot is 21 gallons, regular. Safety: Both have four-wheel disc brakes, emergency braking assistance, electronic stability and traction control, front-seat side air bags, and rear and third-row head air bags as standard equipment.
