Deschutes plans cuts at juvenile detention center 911 director, report give another side to inquiry By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Deschutes County officials plan to lay off five employees at the county juvenile detention center, saying the

population of young offenders has not increased as anticipated. The staff cut will effectively close one of the three sections of the center, although the county’s community

justice director said he will be able to reopen the section when necessary. At the same time, the Juvenile Community Justice Department is one of many at the county that will

not get an increase in county general fund money this year, which amounts to a reduction because of annual cost increases. See Layoffs / A8

Calls can leave Bend Fire tapped

— Doug Koellermeier, Bend Fire Department

This can delay responses, as in a recent house fire

By Erin Golden The Bulletin

When a call came in around 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday, five of the six Bend Fire Department crews on duty were busy. One crew was fighting a brush fire in the northeast end of the city, another was at the North Fire Station, completing a required test of the department’s hoses. Two more, from the east and south stations, were responding to a medical call. The firefighters from the Tumalo Station were working with a property owner looking to get an agricultural burning permit. In the West Fire Station, the three-person crew jumped in a fire engine and roared out the door, sirens on, lights flashing, headed to help a heart attack victim. Just like that, every fire station in the city was empty. As quick as the last crew went out, the battalion chief on duty started working to pull other firefighters from less-urgent calls. But for about 11 minutes, the department’s resources were more or less tapped out. It was the kind of situation that leaves fire officials and dispatchers worrying about what to do if another call comes in — particularly a major incident that would require multiple crews, like a bad car crash or a house fire. And it was the kind of situation fire officials say has become increasingly common as the city has grown, but hasn’t been able to add more firefighters. “It doesn’t give me a good feeling to have nothing left,” said Deputy Chief of Operations Doug Koellermeier, pointing to a map of the city. “You look at this map and think about how many

people are out there, and there’s no fire trucks or ambulances available.” Still, the amount of time when all crews are on calls at once is relatively low — in 2009, it was about 64 hours for the whole year, accord-

ing to a department analysis. But officials said even a few minutes can make a difference when someone is having a heart attack or a house is burning down. See Fire / A4

WASHINGTON — Teens and young adults, short on experience and skills, have been giving up the job search at higher rates than other workers are during this great recession. Frustrated by a lean job market, nearly 1.3 million workers ages 16 to 24 have left the labor force since the recession hit in December 2007. That’s about 6 percent of them, and it’s nearly 3½ times the exodus rate of workers ages 25 to 54. With a jobless rate of 18.5 percent for 16- to 24year-olds, some have gone back to school, some are volunteering, some are joining the military and some are just chilling at home until the economy heats up again.

Zachari Klawonn

FORT HOOD, Texas — At 2 o’clock on a Monday morning, the sound of angry pounding sent Army Spec. Zachari Klawonn bolting out of bed. THUD. THUD. THUD. Someone was mule-kicking the door of his barracks room, leaving marks that weeks later — long after

Army investigators had come and gone — would still be visible. By the time Klawonn reached the door, the pounding had stopped. All that was left was a note, twice folded and wedged into the doorframe. “F--- YOU RAGHEAD BURN IN HELL” it read. The slur itself was nothing new to Klawonn, 20, the son of an American

father and a Moroccan mother. But the fact that someone had tracked him down at night to deliver this specific message sent a chill through his body. Before he enlisted, the recruiters in his hometown of Bradenton, Fla., had told him that the Army desperately needed Muslim soldiers like him to help win the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

North Korea appears not to blame in sinking of South’s ship By Si-Young Lee The Associated Press

BAENGNYEONG ISLAND, South Korea — Military divers plunged into the waters near South Korea’s tense maritime border with North Korea on Saturday, searching in vain for 46 missing marines from a naval ship that exploded and sank, officials said. The exact cause of the explosion was unclear, but North Korea did not appear to be to blame, officials said. Families voiced their anger as hopes faded for the missing crew after the ship sank in one of South Korea’s worst naval disasters. Divers tried twice to get to the wreckage, Rear Adm. Lee Ki-sik of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told lawmakers. The explosion at the rear of the Cheonan shut down its engine, wiped out power and caused the ship to sink a little over three hours later, the Joint Chiefs said. A survivor, Staff Sgt. Shin Eunchong, 24, told relatives he was on night duty when he heard a huge boom behind him that split the ship apart. The vessel started tilting, and his glasses fell off his face as he hit the deck, relatives at a naval base in Pyeongtaek told The Associated Press. Military planes and boats were searching the waters near South Korea’s Baengnyeong Island, where the 1,200-ton Cheonan had been on a routine patrol mission. Rescue efforts Saturday were hampered by high winds. “Yells and screams filled the air,” witness Kim Jin-ho, a seaman who was on a passenger ship bound for Baengnyeong, told cable news channel YTN. “Marines on deck were desperately shouting: ‘Save me!’”

Fleeing the North, refugees voice fears of famine YANJI, China — North Koreans who recently fled to China say many of their fellow citizens are losing faith in the regime of Kim Jong Il after a disastrous currency revaluation that wiped out savings and left food scarcer than at any time since the famine of the mid-1990s, when as many as 2 million people died. “People are outspoken. They complain,” said a 56-year-old woman from the border city of Musan who gave her name as Li Mi Hee. Lowering her voice to a whisper, she said, “My son thinks that something might happen. I don’t know what, but I can tell you this: People have opinions. ... It is not like the 1990s when people just died without saying what they thought.” Li was one of several North Korean women from different parts of the country interviewed this month near the border with China. Using pseudonyms, as many North Koreans do even outside their country to protect family members from retaliation, they told of panic in the wake of the bungled economic move, which left even a staple such as rice in the hands of black marketeers and sent the communist government scrambling to repair the damage. “The whole economic structure has collapsed because of the currency reform,” said James Kim, a Korean-American educator and president of the Yanbian University of Science and Technology in Yanji, China, who is in the process of setting up a similar school in Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. “It is a very difficult situation for them. ... It might end up being worse than the 1990s.” — Los Angeles Times

Agencies suspect Iran of building atomic sites By David E. Sanger and William J. Broad New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — Six months after the revelation of a secret nuclear enrichment site in Iran, international inspectors and Western intelligence agencies say they suspect that Tehran is preparing to build more sites in defiance of U.N. demands. The U.N. inspectors assigned to monitor Iran’s nuclear program are now searching for evidence of two such sites, prompted by recent comments by a top Iranian official that drew little attention in the West, and are looking into a mystery about the whereabouts of recently manufactured uranium enrichment equipment. In an interview with the Iranian Student News Agency, the official, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had ordered work

to begin soon on two new plants. The plants, he said, “will be built inside mountains,” presumably to protect them from attacks. “God willing,” Salehi was quoted as saying, “we may start the construction of two new enrichment sites” in the Iranian new year, which began March 21. The revelation that inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations’ nuclear monitoring agency, now believe that there may be two new sites comes at a crucial moment in the White House’s attempts to impose tough new sanctions against Iran. When President Barack Obama publicly revealed the evidence of the hidden site at Qum last September, his aides had hoped the announcement would make it easier to win international support for a fourth round of economic sanctions, particularly from a reluctant China and

Russia. Since then, however, the White House has been struggling to convince those countries to go along with the toughest sanctions, and the administration is now being forced to scale back its proposed list of sanctions. The U.N. inspectors operate separately from the diplomats who are developing sanctions. Still, the disclosures may be intended, at least in part, to underscore the belief of Western officials that the Iranian efforts are speeding ahead, and the assertions could aid in efforts to press Iran to open up locations long closed to inspectors. This article was based on interviews with officials of several governments and international agencies deeply involved in the hunt for additional nuclear sites in Iran, and familiar with the work of the IAEA, the only organization with regular access to Iran’s known nuclear facili-

Doctrine, not priests, concerned Benedict when he was archbishop By Katrin Bennhold and Nicholas Kulish

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger appears at the Foreign Press Club in Rome in 1987. At the start of the decade, Ratzinger, then archbishop of Munich and Freising, now Pope Benedict XVI, approved the transfer of a pedophile priest to Munich.

New York Times News Service

MUNICH — When Pope Benedict XVI was archbishop of Munich and Freising, he was broadly described as a theologian more concerned with doctrinal debates than personnel matters. That, say his defenders, helps explain why he did not keep close tabs on a pedophile priest sent to his archdiocese in 1980 and allowed to work in a parish. Yet in 1979, the year before Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future pope, approved the Rev. Peter Hullermann’s move to Munich, the cardinal blocked the assignment to the local university of a prominent theology professor recommended by the university senate. And in 1981, he punished a priest for holding a Mass at a peace demonstration, leading the man to ultimately leave the priesthood. Benedict’s 4½-year tenure as archbishop is among the leastexamined periods of his life. As archbishop, Benedict expended more energy pursuing

The Associated Press file photo

theological dissidents than sexual predators. Vatican experts say there is little evidence that Benedict spent much time investigating more than 200 cases of “problem priests” in the diocese, with issues including alcohol abuse, adultery and, now under the microscope, pedophilia. Andreas Englisch, a leading German Vatican expert

and the author of several books on Benedict, said that Ratzinger “was never interested in bureaucratic stuff,” and noted that when he was first asked to be archbishop of Munich, he considered turning down the post because he didn’t want to work as “a manager.” In his autobiography, Benedict described taking the post as “an infinitely difficult decision.”

ties. All the officials insisted on anonymity because the search involves not only satellite surveillance, but also intelligence gleaned from highly classified operations. U.S. officials say they share the IAEA’s suspicions and are examining satellite evidence about a number of suspected sites. But they have found no definitive clues yet that Iran intends to use them to produce nuclear fuel, and they are less certain about the number of sites Iran may be planning. In any case, no new processing site would pose an immediate threat or change the U.S. estimates that it will still take Iran one to four years to obtain the capability to build a nuclear weapon. Given the complexity of building and opening new plants, it would probably take several years for the country to enrich uranium at any of the new sites.

Vatican says it faces a test ROME — As Pope Benedict XVI faces growing pressure to address his role in the handling of sexual abuse cases over the years, the Vatican acknowledged on Saturday that its ability to handle the crisis was a crucial test of its “moral credibility.” In a note read on Vatican radio Saturday, Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, spoke about the recent news coverage of a widening abuse scandal in Europe, including recent revelations in The New York Times. “The nature of the question is such as to attract the attention of the media, and the way in which the church deals with it is crucial for her moral credibility,” Lombardi said. The note, which was not an official statement, comes as Benedict faces increased scrutiny about his role in handling abuse cases, especially as archbishop of Munich and Freising in 1980, when a known pedophile priest was transferred to his diocese. — New York Times News Service

TAPILI, Congo — Depleted by an American-backed offensive and seemingly desperate for new conscripts, the Lord’s Resistance Army, one of the most infamous armed groups in Africa, has killed hundreds of villagers in this remote corner of Congo and kidnapped many more, marching them off in a human chain several hundred people long, witnesses say. The massacre and abductions are a major setback to the effort to stamp out the last remnants of the army, a rebel force that fielded thousands of fighters in the late 1980s and nearly defeated the Ugandan government. But in recent years, it has degenerated into a band of several hundred fighters living deep in the bush in Congo, Sudan and Central African Republic with child brides and military-grade weaponry. The United States is providing millions of dollars to the Ugandan army — in fuel, trucks, satellite phones, night-vision goggles and air support — to hunt them down. It is one of the signature programs of AFRICOM, the new American military command for Africa, which is working closely with the State Department to employ what American officials call “the three D’s” — defense, diplomacy and development — to help African nations stabilize themselves. These efforts appeared to be succeeding, eliminating up to 60 percent of the Lord’s Resistance Army fighters in the past 18 months, American officials said. But that may have been why the fighters tore off on their raid late last year to get as many new conscripts as possible, along with medicine, clothes and food. They also kidnapped nurses from hospitals, witnesses said, and stripped blood-splattered clothes off corpses for themselves, a sign they are increasingly desperate to survive.

With no job, plenty of time for tea party By Kate Zernike New York Times News Service

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — When Tom Grimes lost his job as a financial consultant 15 months ago, he called his congressman, a Democrat, for help getting government health care. Then he found a new full-time occupation: tea party activist. In the last year, he has organized a local group and a statewide coalition, and even started a “bus czar” Web site to marshal protesters to Washington on short notice. This month, he mobilized 200 other tea party activists to the local office of the same congressman to protest what he sees as the government’s takeover of health care. Grimes is one of many tea party members jolted into action by economic distress. At rallies, gatherings and training sessions in recent months, activ-

ists often tell a similar story in interviews: They had lost their jobs, or perhaps watched their homes plummet in value, and they found common cause in the tea party’s fight for lower taxes and smaller government. The Great Depression, too, mobilized many middle-class people who had fallen on hard times — though, as Michael Kazin, author of “The Populist Persuasion,” notes, they tended to push for more government involvement. The tea party vehemently wants less — though a number of its members acknowledge that they are relying on government programs for help. Grimes, who receives Social Security, has filled the back seat of his Mercury Grand Marquis with the literature of the movement, including Glenn Beck’s “Arguing With Idiots” and Fred-

Tea party supporters gather for a rally Saturday in Searchlight, Nev., the hometown of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Human Rights Watch, which sent a team to investigate the killings in February, said that the army killed at least 320 people in this area, calling the massacre one of the worst in the armed group’s 23-year, atrocity-filled history. Witnesses said that the number could be several hundred higher, and that most victims had been taken from their villages, tied at the waist and forced into the jungle, often with enormous loads of looted food balanced on their heads. Along the way, fighters randomly selected captives to kill, usually by an ax blow to the back of the head. “They only scream once,” said Jean-Claude Singbatile, a high school student who said he spent 14 days in captivity and witnessed dozens of people’s executions. What the attack shows, said Anneke Van Woudenberg, one of the Human Rights Watch researchers who was recently in Congo, “is that whether they are weakened or not, the LRA’s capacity to kill remains as strong as ever.” The events expose another troubling reality: Even as Congo’s leaders are pushing the United Nations to begin withdrawing peacekeepers, partly to make the government look more independent from the West, this immense nation of nearly 70 million people remains as vulnerable as ever.

Sarah Palin spoke Saturday to a crowd of some 9,000 tea party activists in Searchlight, Nev.

Palin to activists: Big-government era won’t last SEARCHLIGHT, Nev. — Sarah Palin told thousands of tea party activists assembled in the dusty Nevada desert Saturday that Sen. Harry Reid will have to explain his votes when he comes back to his hometown to campaign. The wind whipped U.S. flags behind the former Alaska governor as she stood on a makeshift stage, holding a microphone and her notes and speaking to a cheering crowd. She told them Reid, fighting for re-election, is “gambling away our future.” At least 9,000 people streamed into tiny Searchlight, a former mining town 60 miles south of Las Vegas, bringing American flags, “Don’t Tread on Me” signs and outspoken anger toward Reid, President Barack Obama, the health care overhaul and other Democrats who supported it. Palin told them the big-government, big-debt spending spree of the Senate majority leader, Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is over. “You’re fired!” Palin said. A string of polls has shown Reid is vulnerable in politically moderate Nevada after pushing Obama’s agenda in Congress. — The Associated Press

Governors clash with AGs over health law By Kevin Sack

Death toll could rise

eric Bastiat’s “The Law,” which denounces public benefits as “false philanthropy.” The fact that many of them joined the tea party after losing their jobs raises questions of whether the movement can survive an improvement in the economy, with people trading protest signs for paychecks. But for now, some are even putting their savings into work that they argue is more important than a job — planning candidate forums and get-outthe-vote operations, researching the constitutional limits on Congress and using Facebook to attract recruits. “Even if I wanted to stop, I just can’t,” said Diana Reimer, 67, who has become a star of the effort by FreedomWorks, a tea party group, to fight the health care overhaul. “I’m on a mission, and time is not on my side.”

TSA nominee is mum on disability, cites defense work in withdrawing

New York Times News Service

ATLANTA — Governors in at least six states are at war with attorneys general from the other political party about whether to join litigation challenging the new federal health insurance mandate. In four states — Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Washington — Democratic governors are criticizing Republican attorneys general for joining the lawsuit over their objections. On Friday, those governors wrote to the federal attorney general, Eric Holder Jr., to offer their assistance in defending the new law against the litigation filed by their own states. In Georgia and Mississippi, meanwhile, Republican governors are chafing at the reluctance of Democratic attorneys general to join the lawsuit on their behalf. They are exploring ways to circumvent their states’ top legal officers and join the case anyway. The disputes carry a heavy overlay of election-year politics. Not only are Democrats and Republicans supporting the positions of their national parties, but three of the attorneys general are running to succeed the governors they are battling, and a fourth is

HEALTH CARE REFORM considering a race in 2012. Each faces a primary that requires appealing to the party base. In Georgia, Attorney General Thurbert Baker is competing in a crowded field for the Democratic nomination for governor. On Wednesday, he formally declined Gov. Sonny Perdue’s request that the state join the lawsuit, saying it had “no legal merit.” Perdue, a Republican who will leave office in January because of term limits, announced Thursday that he would deputize a special attorney general to file a lawsuit for the state. Twelve attorneys general, all but one of them Republican, joined a lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court in Florida by Bill

McCollum, a Republican attorney general who is running for governor. The attorney general of Virginia, also a Republican, has filed a separate challenge. Their primary claim is that the Democratic-controlled Congress and President Barack Obama exceeded their constitutional authority in enacting legislation last week that will eventually require most Americans to obtain health insurance. In Pennsylvania, Gov. Edward Rendell, a Democrat who is also barred from seeking re-election this year because of term limits, urged Attorney General Tom Corbett to withdraw from the lawsuit. “It’s hard to imagine that you take this action on behalf of those who may be sick or have a chronic illness but are uninsured,” Rendell wrote to Corbett, the leading Republican running to replace him.

Democrats who control the state’s House of Representatives threatened to slash Corbett’s budget, but the Republicans in charge of the state Senate said they would not let that happen.

WASHINGTON — The firm owned by a decorated general who withdrew his nomination to lead the Transportation Security Administration received a consulting contract worth almost $100 million from the Army after certifying he was a “service disabled veteran,” according to documents and interviews with government officials. The disability he has cited was sleep apnea, a sometimes chronic breathing disorder that disrupts sleep. Army Maj. Gen. Robert Harding, who became a federal contractor in 2001 after serving at the highest levels of military intelligence, withdrew his name late Friday at the end of a week in which he had been repeatedly questioned about his contracting activities. His withdrawal also came after The Washington Post raised questions with the White House on Friday about his disability status. Attempts to reach Harding on Saturday at his home were unsuccessful. In a Friday statement released by the White House, Harding did not address the disability questions but said, “I feel that the distractions caused by my work as a defense contractor would not be good for this administration nor for the Department of Homeland Security.” Harding’s turnabout comes two months after another TSA nominee withdrew, following revelations that he provided misleading information to Congress and the White House.

2nd strike begins at British Airways British Airways cabin crews on Saturday began their second walkout in a week to protest cost-cutting plans that include a wage freeze and cuts to in-flight staffing. As of midafternoon Saturday in London, 93 British Airways flights departing from Heathrow Airport near London had been canceled, according to the

airline’s Web site, roughly a third of the total. Thirty-eight arrivals were listed as canceled. Flights in and out of Gatwick Airport and London City Airport were unaffected. The airline said all cabin crew at Gatwick had reported for work. The walkout follows a threeday strike that began March 20 that was called by Unite, the union representing the airline’s 13,500

Continued from A1 “Anytime we go in, it’s somebody’s really bad day,” said Battalion Chief Bill Boos. “We are their guardian in that situation, and we hate to have to stack calls — we want to make their bad day better.” Meanwhile, discussions about the department’s staffing levels and response times are at the heart of a growing public debate over whether Bend should raise taxes to help pay for fire and police services as officials try to fill a $21 million budget gap over the next several years.

It was a high-profile incident that garnered attention from people around the community. But fire officials said the more frequent problems are days like Tuesday — no big blazes or dramatic car wrecks, but enough activity to force the department to make tough calls about who to send where and which people could have to wait a little longer for help. “You just have to make decisions, do what you can with what you have,” said Boos, who added that “those decisions are coming more and more.”

The impact The fire department has avoided the layoffs and serious cuts that have affected many city departments, but it hasn’t hired any new firefighters since 2007 and hasn’t filled four positions left open by retirements. In recent years, the average number of calls per day has jumped from 14.5 in 2000 to 21.1 calls per day in 2008, the most recent data available. Most of those calls — more than 75 percent — are for medical service. Nearly 20 percent of those calls come from facilities for senior citizens, and department officials expect that number to grow as more retirement centers are built in the area. In 2009, the busiest day of the week by call volume was Saturday, while December was the month with the highest number of calls, according to department records. Afternoon and early evening hours were the times of the day with the most calls, with the highest number of incidents occurring around 1 p.m. Koellermeier said the higher call volume and higher rate of multiple calls happening at the same time has a direct impact on how quickly the department can respond to all calls, as well as the number of times Bend has to call on other departments for help. Bend has mutual aid agreements with several other agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Redmond Fire & Rescue and the Sunriver Fire Department. Being able to lean on other agencies can be a big help, but officials said it’s not a sustainable solution. It often takes outside firefighters too long to respond, and other departments have to make their own districts the top priority. Redmond Fire Chief Tim Moor said his department has only had to cut one job and doesn’t have any unfilled positions, but said he still faces the same problems as Bend. He said it’s rare that his department can’t provide help to other departments when asked. But about two or three times a week, all of the crews in Redmond are out on calls at the

Bend has 69 firefighters who work out of five fire stations: one at each corner of the city and one in Tumalo. The department operates in an area of more than 100 square miles, including the city and the county’s rural fire district. It also responds to medical calls in an even larger ambulance service area, which spans a total of 1,450 square miles and extends as far away as Burns. In total, the department serves a population of about 102,500 people. Compared to many departments, Bend covers a larger area with fewer people. According to the International City/County Management Association, which tracks fire service data, the average square miles served per station in jurisdictions with populations of more than 100,000 people is about 14. In communities with fewer than 100,000 people, the average is 13. Bend fire stations each cover about 26 square miles. The association measures staffing by firefighters per 1,000 people, with an average of 1.05 for jurisdictions of more than 100,000 people and 1.12 for smaller jurisdictions. Bend’s current level is 0.67 firefighters per 1,000 people — the lowest of Oregon cities of relatively similar size, except for Gresham, which has 0.64 firefighters per 1,000. By comparison, Eugene has 1.1 firefighters per 1,000 people, while Medford has 0.76 per 1,000. Each of the Bend Fire Department’s stations houses several vehicles, including ambulances and fire engines, but the department does not have enough firefighters on staff to use every vehicle at any given time. “We’re rich in equipment, but short on people,” said Tom Wright, the department’s deputy chief for EMS. On a typical shift, there are about 18 firefighters on duty. They work in two- or threeperson crews, depending on the type of call; two firefighterparamedics can go to a medical call in an ambulance, while three would respond in a fire engine. A major call can quickly take up almost all of the available resources. A serious structure fire, for example, can require at least 14 firefighters. And when most or all of the firefighters on duty are already out responding to other calls around the city, it can take some time to pull them away from other work. When a fire tore through a home in northwest Bend earlier this month, the crew in the closest station was already out on an illegal open burn in south Bend, covering for the crew from the South Station, which was on a medical call. The closest available engine crew was at the North Station, about four miles away. It took about 9 minutes for the engine to arrive, considerably longer than the department’s average response time of 6 minutes, 20 seconds, for calls within the city. Several crews arrived on scene within seconds of one another, but once they were busy fighting the fire, the department had run out of resources. Officials called in off-duty firefighters and asked the Redmond Fire Department to man the North Station, which was left empty.

same time. “I never worry about the first call, but with that second and third call for us, I start getting very concerned — are we going to have enough resources to answer the next call?” Moor said. Significant changes in a fire department’s response times and staffing levels can also have an impact on insurance rates for residents. Departments are assessed on those issues and a number of others, including the location of fire stations and fire hydrants, by the Insurance Services Office. That group provides a rating which can be used by insurance companies to set rates, but those companies don’t have to use the rating to help set rates. Within the city of Bend, the department has a rating of 4 on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the top score.

Looking for solutions City Manager Eric King said keeping up with growing demands for fire and medical services is a top priority. Fire and emergency medical services are paid for out of the city’s general fund, which officials say is facing a $21 million shortfall over the next six years. Over the last several months, the Bend City Council has been considering several options for filling that funding gap and paying for police and fire services, which make up about 80 percent of the general fund. “It’s a quality of life issue,” King said. “If we don’t have the ability to respond to emergency situations, a crime in progress, it’s going to definitely impede our ability to grow, and attract both visitors and residents to the community.” At the current funding level, officials have said they’ll probably have to start laying off five police officers and five firefighters per year as soon as the start of the next biennium, which begins in July 2011. The city is currently considering raising property taxes by 41 cents per $1,000 in assessed property value, but that option was panned by the majority of respondents to a survey commissioned by the city earlier this year. King said the city has formed a committee to study the issue and that the group will likely come back to the council with a recommendation by late summer. In the meantime, fire officials said they’re keeping a close watch on the types of calls they’re responding to and doing what they can to use the staff and equipment that they have most efficiently. “We’re fine with dealing with the hand we’re dealt,” Koellermeier said. “But that’s all we’ve got to give.” Erin Golden can be reached at 541-617-7837 or at egolden@bendbulletin.com.

LONDON — Europe’s best known landmarks — including the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and Rome’s Colosseum — fell dark Saturday, following Sydney’s Opera House and Beijing’s Forbidden City in joining a global climate change protest, as lights were switched off across the world to mark the Earth Hour event. In the U.S., participants included the Empire State Building in New York, the National Cathedral in Washington, Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta and the glittering Las Vegas strip. Millions of people were turning off lights and appliances for an hour from 8:30 p.m. in a gesture to highlight environmental concerns and to call for a binding pact to cut greenhouse gas emissions. This year’s was the fourth annual Earth Hour, organized by the World Wildlife Fund. As each time zone reaches the appointed hour, skylines

go dark and landmarks dim, from a Manila shopping mall to Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate and the Empire State Building in New York. “I think it’s great to see that hundreds of millions of people share this common value of lowering our carbon footprint,” said Dan Forman, a spokesman for WWF in Washington. Some 4,000 cities in more than 120 countries — starting with the remote Chatham Islands off the coast of New Zealand — voluntarily switched off Saturday to reduce energy consumption, though traffic lights and other safety features were unaffected, organizers said. “We have everyone from Casablanca to the safari camps of Namibia and Tanzania taking part,” said Greg Bourne, CEO of World Wildlife Fund in Austra-

lia, which started Earth Hour in 2007 in Sydney before it spread to every continent. In Katmandu, Nepal — where electricity supplies aren’t constant — protesters unable to turn out lights held a candlelight vigil, while in the Maldives the state broadcaster ceased transmission for an hour to mark the event, WWF said. Organizers hoped the event would put pressure on global lawmakers to push for clear progress on agreeing to a binding international pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Soldier Continued from A1 Yet ever since, he had been filing complaint after complaint with his commanders. After he was ordered not to fast and pray. After his Koran was torn up. After other soldiers jeered and threw water bottles at him. After his platoon sergeant warned him to hide his faith to avoid getting a “beating” by fellow troops. But nothing changed. Then came the November shootings at Fort Hood and the arrest of a Muslim soldier he’d never met: Maj. Nidal Hasan, who is charged with killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 in a massacre that stunned the nation. And with it, things only got worse. Staring at the note in his hands that dark February morning, Klawonn trembled with panic and frustration. His faith, he believed, had made him a marked man in the Army. Now the November rampage had only added to his visibility.

‘It’s not right’ For Klawonn, this is what it means to be a Muslim soldier in the wake of the Fort Hood shootings: You hide your flowing jalebi robes in your closet. You watch your words and actions, censoring anything that could be interpreted as anger. You do so even as you try to ignore the names piled on you. Sand monkey. Carpet jockey. Raghead. Zachari bin Laden. Nidal Klawonn. But the hardest to shake off — the name that cuts deepest, especially for a man who defied his family and community to become a U.S. soldier — is this one: Terrorist. “To be looked upon by the people you serve with, by people you’ve trusted your life with, as the enemy,” Klawonn says, sitting in his barracks a month after receiving the note. His voice trails off as he struggles to describe the anger he feels. “It’s not right.” For months, Hasan has been locked up in a Texas jail, awaiting trial. Yet his presence lingers. Nearly everyone on base knows someone who was scarred physically or mentally by the violence of that November day. Nearly everyone has a story of where they were, when they first learned what happened and how they still struggle to understand it. Klawonn was there, too, a slim stick of a man with muscles wiry from running marathons. His unit had just returned from Korea and was headed to the site of the shootings, a soldier processing center, when the killing began. Locked down in their battery building, soldiers gleaned details through text messages, email and news alerts. When the identity of the suspected shooter emerged — a Muslim major — the response was almost instant. “Hey, Klawonn, your brother just shot them up.” “We better check Klawonn for weapons.” “Don’t piss him off, he’s gonna go Hasan on us.” Even the more well-meaning soldiers pressed him to explain a brutal act and extremist philosophy that he himself couldn’t fathom. Instead, he denounced the shootings to anyone and everyone. But as details of Hasan’s life began trickling out — his frustrations with the military, the harassment he endured, his odd medical presentations on Islam and efforts to make himself heard — Klawonn secretly felt an understanding of at least some of the pressures Hasan faced. When asked to describe this shred of understanding, Klawonn sits silent in his black Ford truck for a while, trying to find the right words. He says he wants to be careful and doesn’t want what he says to be misunderstood. The deaths of fellow soldiers and the pain caused to their families weigh on his mind. So does the threatening note, the urgent pounding at his door. “I don’t sympathize with him. What he did was heinous, wrong, unforgivable,” he says, pausing. “But when I read about the discrimination he experienced, I have to say, I can believe it. It doesn’t excuse what he did, but it explains maybe a tiny part of it. He was a high-ranking officer. A major. At that level, you demand respect. ...”

Difficult path The path of a Muslim soldier in the U.S. Army is often not an easy one. There are 3,540 Muslims on active duty in the military, a tiny fraction of 1 percent of the nation’s nearly 1.5 million active-duty personnel. Maj. Dawud Agbere, one of six Muslim Army chaplains, says he thinks the number is actually higher, because some Muslims avoid

Army Spec. Zachari Klawonn sits in his barracks at Fort Hood. The Muslim soldier is the son of an American father and a Moroccan mother. On the wall is the flag of Morocco. “To be looked upon by the people you serve with, by people you’ve trusted your life with, as the enemy,” Klawonn says, “it’s not right.”

“The crazy part about all of this is, he’s probably the best soldier we got. I’ve seen him run a marathon while fasting. I mean, that kind of commitment and smarts. When they told me what he’s been through, I asked him, ‘Why do you even want to be a soldier anymore?’” — Spec. Arnold Mendez, Zachari Klawonn’s roommate identifying their faith for fear of discrimination. “It’s frustrating, because most of it comes from a very small group on the fringes,” says Agbere, who serves at Fort McPherson, Ga. In the Army, he adds, Muslims can also face difficulties fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, performing Islam’s five daily prayers or finding a Friday prayer service on base. Muslim soldiers often talk about three seminal events that altered how they are perceived in the military. First came the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, which many feared would forever link Islam and terrorism in the minds of fellow troops. Then came the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which made Muslims in the military assets and Arabic speakers the target of recruiting programs. Then, on Nov. 5, 2009, came the Fort Hood massacre. Afterward, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey worried aloud about a backlash against Muslim troops. “As great a tragedy as this was, it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well,” he said on CNN. The military doesn’t have statistics on Muslim harassment since the shooting. But outside groups say they have seen evidence of a backlash. Within 72 hours of the rampage, reports of discrimination against Muslims increased by 20 percent, according to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a watchdog group. “There were soldiers calling in crying on the phone,” founder Mikey Weinstein said. “They were hearing things like, ‘You can’t be trusted,’ ‘Go back to your own country.’” Within weeks, five Muslim sol-

diers at Fort Jackson, S.C., were accused of plotting to poison food at the base. The allegations were dropped, but the five were still discharged from active duty. “Everything was fine until Fort Hood,” says one of the soldiers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for the safety of his family in an Arabic-speaking country. “Then all of a sudden the hatred began, the accusations, suspicion.” At Fort Hood, commanders say they are still trying to find out who left the menacing note at Klawonn’s door but declined to go into more detail while the incident is being investigated.

From the beginning For Klawonn, the problems began almost the second he arrived for boot camp at Fort Sill, Okla. He had enlisted behind his mother’s back during his senior year of high school. He knew she’d object. When he called her from a recruiter’s office in Tampa to tell her the news, she hung up on him. That night, as he walked into the living room, she collapsed in tears. When she finally spoke, she laid into him with questions: Have you thought this through? What if you go to Iraq? Friends and others at his mosque grilled him, too: Are you really going to kill fellow Muslims? Is this not haram, forbidden? His decision to enlist had surprised everyone, even himself. For most of his life, there had been only school and golf. He had started playing with his father at age 7, and by the time he reached high school, he was competing in professional tournaments. College coaches began reaching out. Then Klawonn’s father was told

he had cancer and died just weeks later. Golf suddenly seemed so trivial. Klawonn thought back to how his dad, a convert to Islam, had always talked about his five years in the Air Force. How he had enlisted straight out of his Kansas high school. How it had given his life purpose and molded him into the man he was. He could be like his father: one of his country’s proud defenders. There were Muslims to protect in the United States, just as there were in Iraq. At boot camp, Klawonn didn’t exactly hide his faith, but it wasn’t something he advertised until that first Sunday, when his drill sergeant began calling out a long list of religious services: Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal ... “Oh, yeah,” the sergeant said with a laugh as he reached the end. “And let me know if any of you need Islamic services.” When Klawonn raised his hand, the sergeant, in disbelief, called him out of formation and pressed him in detail in front of about 400 other trainees. The slurs started soon after. The worst humiliation came during a field exercise at the culmination of boot camp. For weeks, his commanders had sold it as the decisive test — a scenario that involved capturing a high-value terrorist in Iraq and using him as an informant. You, his commanders pointed to Klawonn, you’re the terrorist. “Not only did I not get this final, ultimate training they said was so important,” he said, “all I got to do was be a terrorist, all day long. Unit after unit.” By his count, he has reported more than 20 complaints with the Army’s equal opportunity officers, a number that Fort Hood and Army officials said they could not immediately disprove or verify because the complaints occurred at different bases and units. Complaining about harassment, Kla-

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 28, 2010 A5 wonn says, often intensified it. At Fort Bliss in El Paso, he spoke up about his problems at a unit-wide equal opportunity training session. Two days later, in an episode that other soldiers saw, he walked into the barracks to find the Koran from his locker ripped apart and strewn across the laundry room floor. At Fort Hood, after another string of incidents, he finally broke down, sobbing in the offices of his two direct commanders. Their solution — confirmed by his current commanders at Fort Hood — was to send him to Korea, selling it as a fresh start with a new unit in a foreign culture. On his first day there, his sergeant responded to his request to pray and fast this way: “If I catch you praying during a duty day, I’m going to smoke the dog piss out of you. You understand me?” Pfc. Chad Jachimowicz, a former roommate of Klawonn’s, was being processed by the same sergeant and heard what he said. “I mean, I understand this is the Army. And I swear as much as the next guy,” said Jachimowicz, who has known Klawonn since basic training. “But the kind of (stuff) he gets, the things people say to him, it just pisses me off.” Klawonn’s current roommate, Spec. Arnold Mendez, said: “The crazy part about all of this is, he’s probably the best soldier we got. I’ve seen him run a marathon while fasting. I mean, that kind of commitment and smarts. When they told me what he’s been through, I asked him, ‘Why do you even want to be a soldier anymore?’”

Why keep it up? In his 23 months in the Army, Klawonn has consistently earned among the highest physical training scores in his unit. He’s at the top in weapons qualifications and is the only one in his battalion to be invited to try out for the Special Forces. But the thing that stands out most, says Capt. Christopher Arata, his commander, is Klawonn’s impossibly clean record. Not one reprimand. Never even late to a morning formation. There had been an incident at high school where police discovered a gun in his brother-in-law’s car, which Klawonn had parked at school. No charges were filed, and he said he voluntarily transferred to another school. Klawonn now gets flak about his carefully regimented life: His 9 p.m. lights-out policy. His fourmile run every morning at 4:30. His protein-shake meals, along with meat, greens and little else. When he’s alone, however, he says his world sometimes feels as though it’s collapsing. He experiences bouts of mild depression. He has seen a psychologist six times since enlisting. After the note was left at his door and a similar one on his truck, he has had trouble sleeping. He lies in bed, trying to figure out who left the notes and why. How did the

person know where he lives? Was it someone in the battalion? Is it just one guy or a group of them? Are they outside now, waiting on the other side of the door? During 10 days of home leave last month, Klawonn finally told his family members about what he has endured. They were livid. His mom called the base and, in broken English, berated anyone she could reach by phone. His older sister was more methodical, yelling her way up the chain of command. She could see what all the stress had done to him. “He’s quiet now. Not the happy-go-lucky guy anymore,” says Meriem Klawonn. “Last time he visited, he said he just wanted to stay at my house and laid all the time on my couch.” While he was home, his mother heard about Muslims gathering for a lobbying event in Tallahassee and sent Klawonn to join them. What he saw there changed him. “A guy got up and talked about how we have to stop acting like second-class citizens, like guests in this country,” Klawonn says. “He said the only way to get your constitutional rights is to stand up for them. It was powerful, riveting.”

Off the base On a cloudless afternoon last Thursday, the barracks were unusually quiet. While Klawonn’s unit had the day off, he was in his room packing. In the end, his commanders’ response to the threatening note was to give him a housing allowance and encourage him to move off base for his own safety. So from under his bed, he pulled two dark green duffel bags and began filling them with his military gear. Into an old shoebox, he carefully placed his letter from the Special Forces, two marathon medals and all his unit membership coins. He folded up a Moroccan flag that hung above his bed and placed it, along with his Koran, beside him in his pickup. He still owes the Army two more years. And as he started up the truck, he vowed he would spend that time fighting for the rights of Muslims in the military. Beyond that, who knows. Perhaps he’ll go to college, like his mom has always wanted. Maybe even return to golf. For so long, he said, he felt as though he was living under a shadow. But now, as he drove toward the base exit, a sense of relief washed over him. For the first time in a long time, he saw possibility ahead — a life waiting for him just outside the gates of Fort Hood.

PHYSICAL THERAPY QUESTION: “I have been diagnosed with a chronic myofascial pain in my hips and thighs. How is this treated and can it be cured?” ANSWER: Simply stated, myofascial pain is a form of chronic pain in the muscles and tissues known as the fascia. Unlike a typical muscle strain or injury, myofascial pain lingers long after physiological “healing” of the tissues has taken place. There can be many approaches to curing or managing this type of pain, as there are practitioners. Many myofascial pain syndromes are exacerbated by a nervous system Allison Suran, that becomes “hypersensitive”. This begins a downward spiral of inacP.T., GCFP tivity which leads to increased pain, which leads to less activity, which leads to increased hypersensitivity, and so on. What nerves need to decrease their hypersensitive state is movement. But for folks who have chronic painful conditions, finding the right amount and level of movement or exercise can be challenging. A physical therapist can guide and support you in finding the right level and intensity of movement and exercise that gradually desensitizes the nerves in your muscles. By evaluating postural alignment and imbalances that may be contributing factors to pain, a physical therapist can provide in-depth education and retraining of movement patterns to support necessary changes and promote healing. Simultaneously, a physical therapist can use a variety of techniques to treat and manage the painful symptoms in the muscles and tissues while an individualized exercise program is being developed and progressed.

PLASTIC SURGERY QUESTION: I’m a healthy woman in my mid 40’s who has had three children by natural means and has breast fed all of them. I exercise regularly but am unhappy with my loose skin over the stomach area and my breasts as well. What can I do to revitalize these areas? Adam Angeles, M.D.

A NSWER : This is a common complaint among patients that have had children. Although liposuction is a good technique for removing localized areas of fat over the torso, hips and thighs, it does not tighten the skin overlying those areas of fat removal. Conversely, a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) not only removes the fat from the abdomen and flanks, but tightens the skin and underlying muscles for a more cosmetically appealing figure. The skin around your breast may also be lax and is best treated by a breast lift with or without augmentation to give you a more youthful appearing breast. These procedures can usually be performed in an outpatient surgical setting such as the Bend Plastic Surgery, Outpatient Surgical Center. Contact us for more information.

NSWER: What you describe is quite typical for varicose veins. This condition occurs when the valves in the surface veins in the legs fail, allowing blood to pool in the legs and stretch out the veins. It is a very common disorder and it can be quite uncomfortable. It is true that only a few years ago vein stripping was the main treatment option. In this operation, the patient was treated in the hospital operating room, and under a general anesthetic, the abnormal veins were “stripped out.” The pain and disability after this operation was substantial for many patients and the cosmetic result was often poor. Edward M. Boyle, Jr., M.D., FACS, FCCP

Now days, however, there are newer office based laser procedures that have replaced vein stripping as the intervention of choice for patients who want to have their varicose veins treated. The newest procedures are minimally invasive with no need for stitches, very little down time and the cosmetic results are generally very good. In many cases, treatment for symptomatic varicose veins are covered by insurance. Call to set up a consultation and we can help you decide what options are best for your situation.

COSMETIC DENTISTRY QUESTION: I was in a car accident in 1990 and back then they wanted to surgically break my jaw and do braces to fix it. I am now having lots of problems and was wondering if there are any solutions other than surgery?

ANSWER: I am sorry that you are having problems right now. Chronic pain can have a seriously negative impact on the quality of daily life. I Kelley Mingus, have treated several people who have been in car D.M.D. accidents, both recent car accidents and distant accidents. The good news for you is that we have had some amazing advancements in both technology and treatment options since 1990. It is difficult for me to give a definitive answer, but I can tell you that it is very rare that the kind of surgery your talking would be required to improve your situation. Major jaw surgery should only be considered as a last resort. I have been able to dramatically improve the condition of every chronic pain patient I have treated and have never had to resort to surgery. Your bite is made up of a system that includes your jaw bones, your TMJ joint, your teeth, and the muscles. If any part of the systems loses its harmony then the whole system is compromised and results in chronic pain. The key to treatment is to put that system back into harmony in the most conservative way possible. So to answer your question, yes there are many treatment solutions that do not require surgery. I hope this helps. You can visit my web site to learn more about TMJ treatment solutions at www.bendcosmeticdentist.com.

WELLNESS QUESTION: Is there a difference between Home Health and Home Care? ANSWER: There are key differences between these two in-home services. Home Health is prescribed by a physician and includes the skills of a registered nurse and physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Medicare pays for Home Health skilled nursing care and/or therapy. To Winona Phelps, qualify, a physician must prescribe the services, R.N. which have to be provided by a Medicarecertified home health agency. Home Care does not require a physician’s order. It is available for assistance with daily activities, such as laundry, cooking, bathing, transportation to appointments, and light housekeeping. Many agencies provide these services, and it is important to know that you can choose your home health agency. Home care can be a good solution for short-term needs. For longterm needs of a more complex nature, you may want to consider moving into a retirement community that offers a continuum of professional care. If you think you could benefit from care in the home, Touchmark Home Services offers an assessment at no charge.

C O L O N & R E C TA L C A R E QUESTION: Who is at risk for colon cancer? ANSWER: More than 90 percent of patients are over 40, at which point the risk of contracting the disease doubles every ten years. QUESTION: How does it start? ANSWER: It is generally agreed that nearly all colon and rectal cancer begins in benign polyps. These premalignant growths occur on the bowel wall and may eventually increase in size and become cancer.

Mark Maddox, M.D., FACS QUESTION: What are the symptoms?

ANSWER: Rectal bleeding and changes in bowel habits (such as constipation or diarrhea) are the 2 most common symptoms. Abdominal pain and weight loss are usually late symptoms indicating possible extensive disease. QUESTION: Can colon cancer be prevented? ANSWER: Colon cancer is preventable. The most important step toward preventing colon cancer is to get a screening test. Any abnormal screening test should be followed by a colonoscopy which provides a detailed examination of the bowel. Polyps can be identified and can often be removed during colonoscopy. And though not definitely proven, there is some evidence that diet may play a significant role in preventing colorectal cancer. As far as we know, a high fiber, low fat diet is the only dietary measure that might help prevent colorectal cancer.

ANSWER: Gastric ulcer or Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD) is a common problem and can be diagnosed with several different tests. The most accurate study is an esophagogastroduodenoscopy or EGD. This is Kevin Reuter, performed under light anesthesia and a camera is passed M.D. into the stomach and first part of the small intestine to visualize the lining of the alimentary tract. Biopsies can be taken and bleeding controlled if an ulcer is visualized. The bacteria Helicobacter pylori can cause ulcers and treatment with a cocktail of medications including antibiotics can then be commenced if the bacteria is detected. Other ways to check for the bacteria are with a blood test, stool test, or a urea breath test. Risk factors for developing ulcers include smoking, alcohol abuse, illicit drug use, and use of NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or aleve. Complications such as stomach perforation or gastric outlet obstruction can occur if ulcers are left untreated. In general, if you have had an ulcer, you should be on medication to help suppress gastric acid and your doctor can help you decide which medication to choose.

A NSWER : Weight management can be a tricky business, with problems due to many reasons. First would be to ensure that there is not any chronic disease or medical reasons such as thyroid, adrenal or sex hormone balance; or insulin resistance. Next Kerie Raymond, would be a liver detox or cleanse. We tend to store N.D. our toxins in fat tissue and it is difficult to lose the fat until we lose the toxins. Then there are a few myths we need to bust. Metabolism is set and can be reset by a variety of mechanisms. If we “fast” by not eating, our metabolism slows deliberately to compensate for the lack of fuel. To lose weight we need to eat, especially a breakfast high in protein, low in sugars.

U.S. deaths up in Afghanistan By Sebastian Abbot The Associated Press

KABUL — The number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan has roughly doubled in the first three months of 2010, compared to the same period last year, as Washington has added tens of thousands of additional soldiers to reverse the Taliban’s momentum. Those deaths have been accompanied by a dramatic spike in the number of wounded, with injuries more than tripling in the first two months of the year and trending in the same direction based on the latest available data for March. U.S. officials have warned that casualties are likely to rise even further as the Pentagon completes its deployment of 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan and sets its sights on the Taliban’s

911 Continued from A1 Theresa Joye said Saturday she has been advised by her attorney not to talk about the case or her involvement in it. An investigator’s report released Friday by the county, in response to a public records request, concluded McDonald did not create a hostile work environment at the 911 dispatch center as Theresa Joye had alleged. “I was unable based upon (Theresa Joye’s) information (to) find any evidence of a hostile work environment at the workplace from Director McDonald’s conduct at work,” investigator Gregory G. Olson wrote in a report to the district. “I understand that conduct outside of work may have caused Theresa Joye to be uncomfortable and upset at work but it was not work related.” Additionally, a worker’s compensation claim that Theresa Joye filed the day before McDonald was placed on leave has been denied, according to both McDonald and Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Chief Tay Robertson, a 911 board member. Theresa Joye has appealed the denial, Robertson said. But the 911 board has continued to pursue disciplinary action against McDonald based on what board members say are lies she told fire chiefs and the investigator about intimate details of her relationship with Kyle Joye. Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton, a member of the 911 board, said if an employee lies and does something that embarrasses the district, “absolutely that’s enough” to fire the employee. Blanton and Robertson both say it was appropriate for Robertson and Bend Fire Chief Larry Huhn to question McDonald about specific sexual acts she engaged in with Kyle Joye on a night they spent together at a hotel in Redmond. Those questions, detailed in the investigator’s report, go beyond simply asking McDonald whether she had an inappropriate relationship with Kyle Joye. When the two fire chiefs asked McDonald in November whether she was having an inappropriate relationship, she denied it. That answer was truthful, McDonald said, because she did not believe the relationship was inappropriate. McDonald was separated from her now ex-husband, and Kyle Joye was separated from Theresa. But Robertson and Huhn say they asked McDonald about intimate details of her relationship with Kyle Joye and that she lied to them about that. McDonald says she does not recall the two men asking her about those details. But the investigator hired by the district did interview McDonald about specific sexual details from that night. McDonald contends the investi-

home base of Kandahar province, where a major operation is expected in the coming months. “We must steel ourselves, no matter how successful we are on any given day, for harder days yet to come,” Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a briefing last month. In total, 57 U.S. troops were killed here during the first two months of 2010, compared with 28 in January and February of last year, an increase of more than 100 percent, according to Pentagon figures compiled by The Associated Press. At least 20 American service members have been killed so far in March, an average of about 0.8 per day, compared to 13, or 0.4 per day, a year ago. The steady rise in combat

gator’s questions went far beyond the scope of what’s related to her job, and cites a section of the 911 district’s operations manual that says employees must answer questions in an internal investigation when they are “specifically and narrowly related to the employee’s job responsibilities and fitness for office.” Robertson now says it was appropriate for him and Huhn to ask McDonald about sexual acts — not just the general relationship — because they have a duty to investigate potential hostile work environment issues. “It impacted the workplace because her employee was the wife of the deputy sheriff in question,” Robertson said. “We were concerned about impacts on the workplace and particularly on her employee.” Huhn was on vacation and could not be reached for comment. Blanton said he could not explain why officials focused on the intimate specifics of McDonald’s relationship with Kyle Joye, other than “because they were trying to get to the bottom of the story and decide whether it did relate to work.” “We’ve all spent way too much time on this, and it’s unfortunate,” Blanton said. “And professionals in professional positions should act just as that.” Robertson referred questions about the timing and length of the process to Huhn. Bend Police Chief Sandi Baxter, also a member of the 911 board, could not be reached for comment Friday.

Questions about dispatcher On Saturday, McDonald questioned why she was the only 911 employee placed on leave, since Theresa Joye was the one who discussed McDonald and Kyle Joye’s relationship while at work. “Typically, when we have large investigations with multiple people, everyone will be put on leave,” McDonald said. “But it was just me.” Theresa Joye used dispatch equipment inappropriately for personal conversations with other employees about McDonald’s relationship with Kyle Joye, county officials have said, and McDonald has been put on the spot for not directly disciplining Theresa Joye. In response, McDonald has said Theresa Joye’s direct supervisor was responsible for handling such issues, and it would have been out of the ordinary for McDonald to step in. McDonald did e-mail Theresa Joye from her personal account to ask her not to gossip about personal issues at work. “We’d been friends for years,” McDonald said. “That was more of our personal lives.” Robertson said he didn’t know whether Joye was disciplined for inappropriately using dispatch equipment, and 911’s interim director could not be reached Saturday.

deaths has generated less public reaction in the United States than the spike in casualties last summer and fall. After a summer marked by the highest monthly death rates of the war, President Barack Obama faced serious domestic opposition over his decision in December to increase troops in Afghanistan, with only about half the American people supporting the move. But support for his handling of the war has actually improved since then, despite the increased casualties. The latest Associated PressGfK poll at the beginning of March found that 57 percent of those surveyed approved of his handling of the war in Afghanistan, compared with 49 percent two months earlier.

So far, both the investigator hired by the district and the worker’s compensation insurance company have found Theresa Joye’s claims of a hostile work environment were unfounded. McDonald’s public testimony at her March 18 pre-termination hearing and a sheriff’s report McDonald filed in December raised questions about Theresa Joye’s behavior. At the hearing, as McDonald made her case to keep her job, she read a statement that in part portrayed Theresa Joye as a woman who had numerous relationships with officers at the Sheriff’s Office and local police departments. One deputy was on duty at the time and, even though the incident occurred years ago, he has recently been disciplined for it because it came to light as part of the McDonald investigation, Blanton said. Both Blanton and Robertson said they didn’t know whether Theresa Joye was disciplined for her involvement.

Waiting for a decision McDonald, like others involved in the process, said she is frustrated it has taken so long. The board gave different reasons why she was placed on leave and investigated at different points in the process, she said. “That’s been frustrating, not ever knowing what I’m trying to defend.” When the saga began last year, McDonald never thought it would reach the current situation, she said. “In my opinion, I feel like maybe when this started, they thought it would be bigger than it was, maybe more of a scandal,” McDonald said Saturday. “I feel like it’s dragged on, maybe past the point of no return.” The case has also cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars in extra wages and investigative fees. McDonald earns $98,137 a year, and has been collecting her salary since she was put on leave Dec. 3, even though she hasn’t been working. An interim director has been earning more than $8,000 a month at the same time, and the investigator hired by the district to conduct a personnel investigation and produce a four-page report charged $5,554, the county has said. County officials plan to meet sometime after April 5 to decide whether to discipline or fire McDonald. McDonald said she has no idea what she might do next if she is fired by the board, because she is still waiting to hear whether it might keep her. “It’s been my life,” McDonald said of working at the 911 center. “I’m 35. I’ve been here since I was 20.” Hillary Borrud can be reached at 541-617-7829 or at hborrud@bendbulletin.com.

Continued from A1 It’s anybody’s guess when that will happen. Many experts predict that the economy will begin adding jobs this month, after employers cut only 18,000 jobs in February. Unfortunately, much of the new job growth is in temporary workers, while permanent hiring continues to lag. Don’t expect much relief from the summer hiring season, either. A new survey of hiring managers by the hourly job Web site SnagAJob.com found that seasonal hiring will be at roughly the same depressed levels as it was last year for teens and college students. “Given the year that we’ve had, ‘unchanged’ on the summer job front is pretty good news,” said Shawn Boyer, the CEO of SnagAJob.com. Not for young people who are trying to kick-start their careers, move out on their own or pay for school. They’re being squeezed out of jobs in favor of older, more experienced workers, including those 55 and older. In fact, the number of workers 55 and older has increased by 9 percent, or 2.5 million people, since the recession began. “That’s quite an astonishing rise,” said economist Dean Baker, a co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, a nonpartisan economic and social research center in Washington. Some of these seasoned employees are returning to work because of job losses by spouses or the financial problems of other family members. Others are working longer to recoup retirement savings that were lost in the economic downturn. Their increased presence and the scarcity of new jobs have made it hard for young people to find work. Twenty-nine percent of the hiring managers that SnagAJob surveyed said that older workers would be their younger colleagues’ biggest competition for summer jobs.

Kevin Epperson, 24, is learning electrical wiring at the Potomac Job Corps training center in Washington, D.C. Frustrated by a slow job market, Epperson and other young workers across the country fueled an 8 percent spike in applications to Job Corps, a federal vocational training program for low-income 16- to 24year-olds. As a result, only 55 percent of 16- to 24-year-olds are working or even looking for work, compared with 59.1 percent when the recession started. Baker said Congress should fund a national youth jobs program that was even larger than the summer youth jobs programs funded by the economic stimulus. Tom Mroz, an economics professor at Clemson University in South Carolina, said his research had found that six months of unemployment for young workers would depress their earnings by about 2 percent over the course of 10 years. They’ll also be more likely to be unemployed again. With youth jobless rates approaching 40 percent in some areas, the unemployment situation for teens and young adults is at a crisis level, Baker said. “I think it’s incredible that this hasn’t been talked about more seriously,” Baker said. “We’ve got people coming out of school, and there’s nothing there for them. What are they going to do, sit around and hang out in the street for two or three years, however long it takes for the economy to recover? Because

no one thinks it’s going to recover quickly.” Last year, applications for the Job Corps, a federal job-training program for low-income teens and young adults, jumped 8 percent as the recession deepened. Kevin Epperson, of Philadelphia, and Amber Langlois, of Waynesboro, Pa., enrolled at the Potomac Job Corps Center in Washington last year when they couldn’t find work. After she graduated high school in 2005, Langlois, who’s 23, bounced from job to job as a convenience store clerk, supermarket cashier and bank teller before she was fired from a book distribution factory for tardiness last March. She enrolled in Job Corps in June. “I couldn’t find any work whatsoever. It got to the point where I was just sitting at the house basically doing nothing and just feeding off other people. And that wasn’t where I wanted to be.”

Haiti’s concrete buildings proved anything but By William Booth

A local resident, left, looks on as Katharyn Gallagher and Kevin Catlin, structural engineers with the U.S. Navy, survey buildings in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In the rubble-strewn city, even the president says he is afraid to sleep indoors after so many buildings crumbled in the January quake.

The Washington Post

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — As Haitians deal with the psychological aftershocks of the devastating earthquake, city dwellers here — prominent and poor alike — confess they continue to harbor deep anxieties about entering buildings constructed of concrete. Their fears, as it turns out, are entirely rational. International engineers inspecting buildings in the rubble-strewn capital have found that houses and offices in Haiti suffered catastrophic damage mainly because they were poorly constructed — made with a weak cement and lacking proper steel reinforcements, in a country where the government never enforced building codes. Haitian President René Préval has said he is scared to sleep inside. The National Palace collapsed in spectacular fashion, and his own private home lies in ruins. Préval is staying with friends until he can move to an earthquake-resistant structure. “Like you, I am nervous,” he told reporters. Later he explained, “Port-au-Prince was not well built.” Many people continue to sleep outdoors, fearful even of homes with only cracked walls. Their anxiety poses a challenge for aid workers and government officials who want Haitians to return to structurally sound, though damaged, homes. Haitians are especially wary of entering large concrete structures. Since the Jan. 12 quake, which killed an estimated 200,000 people, many parents have balked at sending their children back to schools built of concrete. Some patients ask to see doctors in hospital courtyards because they don’t trust the buildings. Eduardo Marques Almeida, head of the Haitian office of the Inter-American Development Bank, remembers being in the bank’s hilltop headquarters when the earthquake struck. The damaged building is now abandoned. He conducts his meetings under a mango tree because many of his staff members refuse to enter the bank’s other, still sound offices, for fear they could collapse in an aftershock. “We’re going to tear them all down and rebuild, or else nobody will work inside,” Marques said. In a confidential memo circulated among its employees in Haiti, the United Nations mission recommended that they stay out of concrete structures and offered suggestions on how to politely decline to attend meetings in buildings they deem dubious.

Still standing, but now unoccupied For only the second time since the earthquake, Hiclair Siclait, 70, opened the door to his concrete home recently and entered hesitantly. “When the earthquake happened, I saw the roof going up and down.” He rocked back and forth to simulate the motion. Ever since, Siclait has lived in the streets under a tarp with his wife, four sons and two daughters. “I am afraid to sleep inside. If I find a tent, I will sleep on the roof,” he said. “I think after a few months I might come back. With time, I might be less

Layoffs Continued from A1 That means the department will have to trim operations so it has enough money to cover escalating personnel costs, said Community Justice Director Ken Hales. Revenues that go into the county general fund include property taxes and recording fees from the Clerk’s Office. Agencies in Oregon have been able to rely on their property tax revenue growing consistently by at least 3 percent annually because of the way taxes are assessed, but plummeting property values could mean an increase of only 2 percent in the upcoming budget year, the Deschutes County assessor has said. Hales said that despite the tighter budget beginning in July, the decision to lay off employees is based primarily on fewer

afraid. You never know.” There is a saying among engineers that earthquakes do not kill people — buildings kill people, said Dennis Smith, a structural engineer with the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command. “And the buildings here were badly constructed. They failed for a reason.” Escorted by a platoon of U.S. Army airborne, Smith and a team of Haitian engineers went house by house in Port-auPrince’s Turgeau neighborhood, an eclectic mix of old French Caribbean wooden dwellings and newer concrete-block construction. The concrete buildings fared worse. Haitian and U.S. engineers inspecting the 225,000 dwellings and 20,000 offices that the Haitian government estimates were damaged or destroyed say that much of the catastrophic damage could have been averted if concrete masonry had been reinforced — one of the most basic rules of engineering.

Unsteady foundations “Simple things caused collapse,” said Soon-Min Kwon, a project manager with the earthquake engineering firm Miyamoto, which is based in California. Kwon said columns, for example, were not properly wrapped with steel rods, or the rods were too thin, or the columns were not properly connected to the floors they were supposed to support. “If there is a building code, we haven’t been able to find it,” said Vince Sobash, an engineer who works for the U.S. Navy, who was training a group of Haitian engineers how to rate houses for earthquake damage. In Haiti, the poorest country in the hemisphere, most homeowners cobbled their houses together themselves block by block or paid a small-time contractor, who might have relied on tradition more than engineering. For example, thinking they were making houses stronger, many homeowners made their concrete floors thicker, and thereby heavier, and did not properly use reinforcing steel bars, known as rebar. As they made more money, owners often added floors, and many of those two- and three-story buildings pancaked. “I also think that a lot of the landlords were cheap with cement and did not build the houses strong because it costs them a little more money,” said

juvenile offenders in the county facility. “We’d been anticipating an increase, but it hasn’t materialized,” Hales said. Instead, the numbers of kids at the facility have been stable. Hales announced the layoffs to his employees on Friday, according to an internal county newsletter. He plans to give notice to the employees who will be laid off later this week, and the layoffs will be effective 30 to 45 days after that. The average daily population at the juvenile detention center in 2009 was 21 youths, Hales said. Each section, or “pod,” at the detention center has 12 rooms, including one with two beds. “It’s preferable in this business that you don’t put more than one kid in a room,” Hales said.

Yes, somebody from the government came by your house. But not to inspect. To get paid something. It was a greedy adventure.” In planning meetings here, engineers envision a two-tiered system: one with strict international standards, with seismic protections, for larger structures, and a simple but enforceable code for houses — a fivepage illustrated booklet that at least shows the proper way

Many builders here skimped on cement in the concrete mix and block fabrication, producing concrete that crumbled and exposed steel rebar to the elements. The cement itself was also especially poor. Haiti’s government has now banned the commonly used sand quarried from the hillsides and recommended that builders use riverbed sand, though it is impossible to know whether this will be enforced. “Poor people deserve decent engineering, too,” said Leslie Voltaire, an architect and planner here.

Glitches crash Bachelor’s party Washington Week WASHINGTON — Lawmakers shifted from neutral to fifth gear over the past two weeks, passing a long-stalled health care bill and moving on to job creation measures, financial regulatory reform and other measures. But they didn’t extend unemployment benefits that will expire at the beginning of April, after senators failed to reach an agreement on how to pay for the extension. At the same time, a cut in Medicare payments to doctors is scheduled to go into effect, after a temporary reversal of the cut expires. Here’s how Oregon’s lawmakers voted last week.

U.S. SENATE • AMENDING A BILL TO OVERHAUL THE U.S. HEALTH CARE SYSTEM Passed 56-43 on Thursday. The measure approved a package of amendments to the U.S. Senate’s health care bill, including removing some, but not all, of the bill’s provisions to benefit individual states (including the “Cornhusker Kickback” for Nebraska). It also delays the imposition of the tax on high-cost health insurance plans until 2018, among the many changes. The bill was passed using a tactic called “reconciliation,” which prevents the use of filibusters.

Power outage, high winds plague extended skiing debut By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

When just about everything goes wrong, cheap beer and free lift tickets are one way to make things right. Saturday was scheduled to be the first-ever “Pine Party” at Mt. Bachelor, a special promotion to keep the Pine Marten lift running three hours longer than normal, with ticket prices set at $10 between 4 and 7 p.m. Marketing Director Alex Kaufman said it would be the first time the mountain was ever open past 4 p.m. that anyone

could recall, and possibly the first time in the ski area’s more than 50-year history. By 3 p.m., the Pine Party was in doubt. An untimely power outage around noon stranded hundreds of skiers and snowboarders on the lifts, with those caught near the top battered by winds of around 40 mph. Disappointed customers lined up to argue for lift ticket refunds, while those who kept skiing dealt with lifts running far slower than normal and intermittent stoppages.

Kaufman said the resort had little choice but to press on — canceling the Pine Party would have meant dealing with a whole new crowd of disappointed customers. “It’s kind of an uncancellable event, because we can’t close Century Drive,” he said. “We’d have to put a rope across the road in Bend.” Instead of canceling, Mt. Bachelor doubled down, cutting food and drink prices in half after 4 p.m. and giving away lift tickets for free. See Bachelor / B5

Bank failures prompt city of Redmond to consider backup plan

Kitzhaber’s campaign takes the green route with emissions credits Bend firm sells credits to help offset emissions during race for governor By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

The Kitzhaber for Governor campaign is using carbon emissions credits to offset the energy it uses while on the road and in the office, and it’s using a Bend company to purchase the credits. The campaign purchased the credits through Carbon Neutral Plane, a local company owned and operated by Jeffrey Witwer. “It’s a small thing that we’re doing that makes a small difference, but if enough people and enough campaigns and organizations are willing to do it, we could make a big difference,” said campaign spokesman Derek Humphrey. “We’ve been talking a lot about sustainability, and we released our plan for energy and natural resources (on Friday). So we’re just making sure our campaign matches up with the

policy.” Former Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber, 62, is running for another term as a Democrat, and will face former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury as his main opponent in the May primary. The campaign purchased 19,944 pounds of carFormer Gov. bon dioxide for the months of FebJohn Kitzhaber ruary and March, which is about is making a 9,972 pounds for each month. bid to get his Carbon Neutral Plane purold job back. chased the credits through The Bonneville Environmental Foundation, and the funds support renewable energy sources, in this case wind energy. “Because the amount of staff and office space and travel are in flux from month to month, we give basically a projection (to Witwer) at the beginning of each month,” Humphrey said. See Kitzhaber / B5

The city of Redmond, with an eye toward bank failures, may soon create a backup bank account to make sure it will always be able to pay its bills. In the last year, four Oregon banks failed, the most recent of which was Columbia River Bank on Jan. 22, according to federal data. Though city funds are backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and Oregon’s Public Funds Collateralization Program, the city worries that some of its money could be unavailable for a few days. If the Redmond City Council approves the new account, which would be at PremierWest, the city would join Bend in having such an account. Redmond will have to spend about $1,000 to set up the account and order checks, according to a city staff report. The account would help city business run smoothly in case of a bank failure, according to Jason Neff, the city’s budget and financial analyst. “If there was some reason we couldn’t access our funds for a short period of time, we could still conduct business such as payroll,” Neff said. “It’s just a backup plan.” See Redmond / B5

In 1979, Three Mile Island is site of America’s worst nuclear accident The Associated Press Today is Palm Sunday, March 28, the 87th day of 2010. There are 278 days left in the year. TODAY’S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY On March 28, 1979, America’s worst commercial nuclear accident occurred inside the Unit 2 reactor at the Three Mile Island plant near Middletown, Pa. ON THIS DATE In 1834, the U.S. Senate voted to censure President Andrew Jackson for the removal of federal deposits from the Bank of the United States. In 1854, during the Crimean War, Britain and France declared war on Russia. In 1898, the Supreme Court, in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, ruled that a child born in the United States to Chinese immigrants was a U.S. citizen. In 1930, the names of the Turkish cities of Constantinople and Angora were changed to Istanbul and Ankara. In 1935, the notorious Nazi propaganda film “Triumph des Willens” (“Triumph of the Will”), directed by Leni Riefenstahl, premiered in Berlin with Adolf Hitler present. In 1939, the Spanish Civil War effectively ended as Madrid fell to the forces of Francisco Franco.

T O D AY IN HISTORY In 1941, novelist and critic Virginia Woolf drowned herself in Lewes, England. In 1942, during World War II, British naval forces raided the Nazi-occupied French port of St. Nazaire in Operation Chariot. In 1969, the 34th president of the United States, Dwight D. Eisenhower, died in Washington, D.C., at age 78. In 1994, absurdist playwright Eugene Ionesco died in Paris at age 84. TEN YEARS AGO In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court, in Florida v. J.L., sharply curtailed police power in relying on anonymous tips to stop and search people. FIVE YEARS AGO The Colorado Supreme Court threw out the death penalty in a rape-and-murder case because five of the jurors had consulted the Bible and quoted Scripture during deliberations. (The U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider reinstating the death sentence of Robert Harlan, who ended up being resentenced to life in prison for the murder of cocktail waitress Rhonda Maloney.) A major earthquake off the west coast of Indonesia killed

some 1,300 people. ONE YEAR AGO Fears in Fargo, N.D., of a catastrophic flood eased with word that the surging Red River had crested at lower-than-expected levels. Nearly 4,000 cities and towns in 88 countries switched off nonessential lights for Earth Hour to highlight the threat of climate change. Thousands of people marched through European cities to demand jobs, economic justice and environmental accountability. Shuttle Discovery and its crew of seven returned to Earth, ending a 13-day voyage to install a pair of solar wings on the International Space Station.

Linn County’s 10-year homeless plan, released in May 2009, estimates more than 300 people in the county are homeless. That’s according to a shelter count conducted in 2008. The report notes, however, that numbers are probably much higher, considering many homeless people have temporary shelter with family or friends, sleep in cars or campgrounds, or for various reasons never seek services. The 2008-09 homeless student count released by the Oregon Department of Education reports more than 300 students were homeless that year in Lebanon alone.

Brownsville residents, Bruce and Melinda both work as well, as volunteers. Bruce, 59, works part time with Resource Connection of Oregon in Brownsville, which helps mentally disabled adults, and Melinda, 47, is full time at Chamberlin House, a private, nonprofit home for adults with cognitive disabilities. The two use their own funds whenever necessary, but welcome donations. They chose to start serving in Lebanon because Bruce used to volunteer for the Lebanon Soup Kitchen and knew the needs there. The Lebanon meals are informal gatherings; a couple choosing to barbecue for their friends rather than run an organized soup kitchen. But Bruce says he’d like to have a bigger, more extensive food service in his hometown. He has approached the Brownsville City Council for permission to set up “Bruce’s Burgers” in Pioneer Park every other week, a request the city is still discussing.

It complicates things to get city officials involved, Bruce says. He is working on renewing his food handler’s license, and his certification for CPR and first aid, but he doesn’t have the documents yet. Brownsville councilors wondered aloud whether Bruce would be able to sanitize his surfaces or keep food at the proper temperature. Melinda says she understands the concerns, but thinks they miss the larger point. People are hungry, both for food and company, she says. If filling the need means taking a risk, so be it. “Just get out there and do something,” she says with a shrug. “If something happens, something happens.”

LEBANON— It’s St. Patrick’s Day, but to the people who gather at River Park for Bruce McMurry’s monthly meals, it’s always Thanksgiving. “You want a plate of food, brother?” Bruce McMurry calls to a new arrival, who sweeps his gaze along the picnic table laden with deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, chocolate-chip cookies and an enormous crock pot brimming with what Bruce calls Irish stew. “I’ll hook you up!” A thin man with a stubble of beard tucks himself and his bowl into the shadows of the Lebanon park’s covered pavilion for a quick prayer over his meal. Back at the food table, Bruce’s wife, Melinda, thanks a diner for his patience as she dishes up another paper bowl of corned beef and cabbage. “No,” he tells her. “Thank you for the food.” Usually, Bruce and Melinda barbecue burgers to share with the homeless men and women who join them at the park, once a month since September. And they usually wait for the last Thursday of the month, when the food stamps are just about gone. But this midmonth Wednesday is a holiday, and Bruce’s heritage is Irish. The saint will

be honored with stew. “I got 2½ pounds of carrots in there, 3 pounds of red potatoes, two full heads of cabbage and about 10 pounds of corned beef,” Bruce says, nodding at the crock pot. “Bruce and his old lady have been coming down and hooking us up,” one visitor calls. “They’ve been cooking some mean food.”

you got a couple of sandwiches, and some lunch, and some socks for tonight when you go to work.” “I don’t have any food at home or anything, so this is great,” Landry tells the McMurrys as he digs into the stew. “I was wondering what I was going to eat.”

O YAMHILL COUNTY

Juvenile jail’s strip searches go too far, judge says The Associated Press MCMINNVILLE — A federal judge says the Yamhill County juvenile jail has gone over the line in what he terms “astonishingly thorough” strip searches of young people. The McMinnville NewsRegister reported that U.S. District Judge Michael Mosman ruled the searches unconstitutional — too intrusive and demeaning. The Juvenile Detention Center searches young people when they are first jailed, and then again after face-toface visits with lawyers and counselors. A group of young people sued the center in 2008, saying they were searched as often as eight times in five days. The searches could discourage young people from seeking help, Mosman wrote in a ruling on motions. “It is not hard to imagine a juvenile ... begging her attorney not to come visit her again, lest she be subjected to an nth strip search,” he said. “Nor is it any better to envision a troubled young person declining to visit with her therapist for the same reason.” The county argued its policy is reasonable and no more intrusive than necessary, and it could appeal Mosman’s ruling even as the case goes on. A trial is scheduled in October, when issues such as damages are to be considered. Attorney Leonard Berman said Mosman’s ruling against even the initial searches went further than the plaintiffs had asked. “That was not argued by us,” he said. “To frankly go off the menu and advocate for us is very uncommon and very exciting. It’s surprisingly refreshing.”

Students’ civics lessons applied to citizens-to-be Portland high schoolers start nonprofit group to help people get ready for naturalization By Kimberly Melton The Oregonian

PORTLAND — If you’d just spent months studying the birth of democracy and understood amendments, vetoes and the separation of powers, you’d pass your civics tests and count the days till summer, right? Not six Lincoln High School students who met through the school’s U.S. Constitution team. They decided their training was just a preamble to the real world. They wanted to apply their knowledge to serve the community. And so was born Mission: Citizen — their nonprofit group to help legal residents prepare for naturalization. “We wanted to initiate something with a lasting benefit,” said Naomi Dann, a senior at the southwest Portland school.

Chanthakoun’s story For Chanhsouda Chanthakoun, that lasting benefit came earlier this month when she raised her hand, recited the naturalization oath and officially became a U.S. citizen. The 32-year-old native of Laos moved to the U.S. about nine years ago and has been in Oregon for five years. As she walked into the audience waiting area of the federal courtroom with her miniature American flag, certificate and pocket U.S. Constitution, she looked at one of her co-workers and then gestured to the Lincoln students sitting in the back. “These are my friends,” she said. The teens hopped from their seats and surrounded her with hugs and well wishes. Chanthakoun was the first person to take the free two-month class offered by Mission: Citizen and pass the naturalization test. She found out about the free classes when the students put an ad offering the course in the Asian Reporter newspaper. That was the motivation she needed to take the leap. “I decided this was the time to

She was surprised to find that her teachers were 16-, 17- and 18year-old high school students. But that didn’t deter her. “I thought I would learn a lot from students who have the energy to teach people,” she said. “And if I went, I could help them to be teachers in the future.” At first, learning the material was difficult, Chanthakoun admitted. She and a second student found it difficult to grasp some of the concepts.

‘Unbelievable maturity and civic passion’ That was a challenge that some of the students didn’t see coming. They’d thought they would face language barriers, though the students themselves speak several languages, including Korean, Italian, French, Spanish and German. “But we were teaching concepts that didn’t really exist for our students in the countries they came from,” said senior and group treasurer Louis Wheatley. “We couldn’t just lay out a PowerPoint on it. We had to show them.” To discuss separation of powers, they went to their U.S. Constitution team coach’s infamous “pillow lecture.” One person holds a pillow and hits another student with it. But if three different people hold the

same pillow, no one person can use it to hit another student without the consent of the other two. Though their classes included several sample naturalization tests, Dann said the students didn’t want them to be about just taking the test. They wanted to help make the elements of U.S. government real and understandable. “These students have unbelievable maturity and civic passion,” said Steve Griffith, who has coached Lincoln’s U.S. Constitution team for 10 years. “They came up with an idea, created the Web page and figured out what they needed to do to educate themselves on this issue.”

O  B 1 killed, 2 injured in Portland shooting PORTLAND — One person has died and two others were injured in a late-night shooting in southeast Portland that police described Saturday as gang-related. Portland police said officers found three people wounded about 11:30 p.m. Friday. One, 29-year-old Deangelo Oliver, died. Police said they aren’t releasing the names of the two survivors to protect their safety. Police also investigated a shooting downtown early Saturday that left a man wounded, but don’t believe it was gang-related. Portland police have expressed concern about a spate of fights and gunfire recently between two gang factions.

National Guard gets serious about stumps ALBANY — When it comes to uprooting tree stumps, the Oregon National Guard doesn’t fool around. Next month, Guard engineers at the Camp Adair rifle range will blow up 129 of them with TNT. Guard officials told the Albany Democrat-Herald the blasting will be both for camp improvement and for training: Stumps left over from a logging project have to be cleared for a road project. And the engineers get to polish what an officer calls “a vital skill set.” The rifle range is on more than 400 acres at what was a World War II Army camp west of Albany. Since 1978, the Guard has operated small arms ranges and conducted

maneuvers there, under a license with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Washington man hurt in boat explosion PORTLAND — The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said a Washington state man was seriously injured when an explosion destroyed a 32-foot cabin cruiser that had just taken on fuel at a marina. The sheriff’s office identified him as Arvin Nicholson, of Kennewick, and said Saturday he is in critical condition. The sheriff’s office said two Oregonians were aboard, Rodger and Judy Chastain, of the Heppner area. It said he was treated and released, and she remains hospitalized in fair condition. The boat’s 180-gallon tank had just been filled Friday morning, and the three were setting off for Hermiston when they were blown into the water.

Hiker’s deadly fall believed accidental PORTLAND — The Oregon State Police said a hiker at Silver Falls State Park east of Salem has died in a fall that appeared to be accidental. The police said the young man was hiking with a party Saturday and fell to a ledge near Winter Falls. He was not immediately identified. — From wire reports

DAW Forest Products ends New studies shed light on seniors and swine flu logging operations in 1985 100 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 27, 1910 HOTELS ENLARGING Part of the building now occupied by Landlord O’Kane, of the Bend Hotel, and formerly used as a bowling alley, has been remodeled as an annex to the hotel. Twelve comfortable rooms have been installed, which are now being painted, papered and furnished, making a total of 42 guest rooms. The commodious 20-room addition to the Pilot Butte Inn, at the north end of Wall Street, is nearing completion, and promises soon to materially add to the comfort of the many visitors who are crowding into town. Certainly present indications point to a rush of newcomers who will tax to the utmost the capacity of Bend hotels, despite their enlarging, and Bend dwellings, increasing in number ever so rapidly. FIRE! On Monday night at about nine, dense clouds of smoke were discovered issuing from the second story of the building occupied by Merrill & Wilkinson. Everybody turned out to fight the fire, but before anything could be done there was no fire to fight, for George Hobbs, arriving first on the scene, had thrown the exploding lamp, the cause of the trouble, out of the window, and with a bucket of water quenched the flames. WIESTORIA SOLD C.W. Melville, representing a number of Seattle capitalists, yesterday completed a deal with L.I. Wiest whereby Wiestoria, the newly platted townsite, passed into Mr. Melville’s possession. One hundred acres were affected by the sale, and this amount will be placed on the market at once. Mr. Melville, after inspecting the entire Deschutes Valley, stated that in his estimation Bend “leads the field.” Seattle buyers, he says are vastly interested in the local possibilities. After a few days’ trip south and east from here, Mr. Melville returns to Seattle.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 27, 1935 PREPARING FOR WAR (Editorial) Europe is preparing for war, we learn from the headlines. Europe continues to prepare for war would be more accurate phrasing. Europe has been doing that very thing — preparing for war — ever since the close of the last major continental conflict. Naval treaties, Versailles treaty, Locarno pact have been all very well for publicity purposes, but, as an entirely practical matter, quite apart from the flights of fancy so expertly publicized, Europe has been preparing for war. That, it might be remarked in passing, is one of the important reasons why Europe — with the exception of honest Finland — has been unable to pay the debts it piled up in its last big war. Europe has taken bankruptcy, and preparing to incur, still more. War preparation, on a large scale, includes pacifist Russia

Y E S T E R D AY and vanquished Germany, where war preparations were forbidden by the victors. The general facts of French preparations have been an open secret for some time, the same has been true of fascist Italy, and the Balkan peoples are in their normal condition — spoiling for a fight. Oh, well, if they must get it out of their system, we suppose they must. Sometime, it may be, the troublemaking nations will grow up. Just now, it seems more probable that they will not. A new generation has been produced since the last war, and is about ready to bear arms, as youth bore arms in the world strife of not so long ago. Dictators have encouraged the bearing of children to replenish shattered armies of two decades since. So bring on your war. An excuse to fight is all that’s needed now, and an excuse to fight is never hard to find. In such eventuality, we might further suggest, America’s most intelligent role will be that of spectator. CROWDS BACK HITLER’S DEFIANCE OF TREATY With his bold announcement of the immediate conscription of 500,000 men to provide Germany with a standing army comparable to that of neighboring powers, Chancellor Adolph Hitler ended the subterfuges under which militarization of the Third Reich was being conducted.

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 27, 1960 LAWMEN FROM ANCIENT IRAQ PAY VISIT TO CENTRAL OREGON AREA By Phil F. Brogan Lawmen from a land ruled long ago by Babylonian kings visited Bend this week to see how Oregon State Police of 1960 handle their work. Here from Iraq, better known as Mesopotamia, “the land between two rivers,” were Hamid Al Mayah, whose headquarters are in Basrah on the Persian Gulf; Sec. Lt. M. Ajid Badrawi from Baghdad, and First Lt. Ridhu Caplan, who is stationed in Mosul on the Tigris, not far from the ruins of ancient Nineveh. A highlight of the officers’ Bend visit was a trip Tuesday to snow-covered Bachelor Butte, beautiful under an unclouded spring sun. Guided by ski patrolmen, the three officers made their way up to the timberline on the Pomalift, for a view of the Three Sisters on the western skyline. The young officers, from the land that was once the center of a vast Arabian empire, were thrilled by the snowy world they found in the high country west of the Deschutes. The Iraq police are on a sixmonth visit to the U.S., to study federal, state and county police systems and court procedures. They are finding America a land of contrasts. And they are also learning that Americans know little about Iraq, a region that traces its history back some 4,000 years. The visitors are taking opportunity to remind their hosts

that Iraq is becoming a tourists’ Mecca. They tell of spectacular scenery along the Tigris and mention world-famous mosques and ancient buildings in the land above which once reared the Tower of Babel. The visiting officers told of the important archaeological discoveries made by expeditions visiting the ancient land and noted the famous discoveries made in the old sites of Babylon, Ninevah, Uhr, Kish and other towns, some of which are now buried under desert sands or river silts. Iraq, the officers reported, is developing one of the world’s finest museums, under the Department of Antiquities and Archaeology. The visitors said public security in Iraq is maintained by a police force under the authority of a governor of a province, but technically under the direction of the director general of police. Civil court procedure is nearly identical with that of western Europe.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 27, 1985 DAW ENDS LOGGING; 70 AFFECTED DAW Forest Products Inc. will shut down its logging operations permanently today, a move that may put as many as 70 people out of work. Phil Douglass, business agent for International Woodworkers of American Local No. 3-7, learned of the closure Thursday from Hugh Bannister, DAW’s director for industrial relations in Lake Oswego. Bannister confirmed the closure today, saying “economics” is the reason for the decision. “The overall cost of logging has become almost prohibitive because of the cost of equipment replacement and worker productivity,” Bannister said. He said independent logging contractors will replace the company’s woods crew, although he does not know when the independent loggers will begin. Closing DAW’s woods operations will affect only company timber fallers and buckers, log truck drivers and mechanics. Those workers and others represented by the IWA have a contract with the company until June 1, 1986. Bannister said he does not yet know how individual workers will be affected because company and union officials have not yet met to discuss the effects of the closure. Douglass expressed surprise at the move, saying the union and company had discussed instituting an incentive program that would pay company loggers on a productivity rather than a straight wage basis. Bannister said the incentive proposal “didn’t have as much merit as we thought” because of new equipment costs and productivity. DAW bought Diamond International’s two Bend sawmills, a plywood mill and remanufacturing plant in Redmond, and four other mills in Idaho and Montana 11 months ago.

Oregon agency’s overspending means students may go without scholarships The Associated Press PORTLAND — An Oregon agency that awards need-based college grants has spent too much money this year, which could mean a few thousand students go without assistance next year. State officials, beginning with Gov. Ted Kulongoski, are angry. The Oregon Student Assistance Commission had $57 million this year for the scholarships known as Oregon Opportunity Grants. The grants can be as high as $2,600 for community college students and $2,721 for students who attend four-year schools. The commission told the Legislature in February that it had committed an additional $9.7 million, and the Legislature put more money in the program.

Last week, the agency reported it was even further over budget — $5 million to $9 million more. Its staff said it misjudged student attrition. “The belated revelation of another overcommitment of this magnitude is disturbing to me,” Kulongoski said in a stern letter to the commission, whose members he appoints. “I am also concerned about its impact on the credibility of the program — with the Legislature, our educational institutions and the public.” Senate President Peter Courtney of Salem said he was angry at the “total incompetence” of the commission staff. “It just keeps getting worse and worse,” he said. “It’s got to stop, because we don’t have the money, but we have people being

promised things, and they are relying on these promises.” Executive Director Dennis Johnson told the commission Friday that more grant applicants than expected went through with enrollment or stayed in school — probably because of the recession. He said the agency had trouble figuring out how far it was above budget because colleges took months to provide information on grant recipients. The commission awarded grants this year to 43,100 students and is distributing money for next year on a first-come, first-served basis until the money runs out. Kulongoski’s chief of staff, Tim Nesbitt, said more than 3,000 students could be denied a state grant next year.

Antibodies from exposure to Spanish flu virus that caused pandemic in 1918 protected many older folks from H1N1

Seniors are usually more likely to contract the flu than other groups, but a surprising number were unaffected by the H1N1 flu pandemic. New York Times News Service file photo

By Thomas H. Maugh II Los Angeles Times

The elderly are normally the most susceptible to flu viruses, so it was something of a shock to find that they were largely spared in the recent waves of pandemic H1N1 influenza. Experts have speculated that their apparent resistance to the virus may have arisen because they were exposed to a similar virus in the past and developed some antibodies that protected them. Two new studies demonstrate that this is the case, and that the virus they had been exposed to was the one that caused the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic that killed millions worldwide. Both groups studied hemagglutinin (the “H” in H1N1), the spike-shaped protein that sits on the surface of the flu virus. Hemagglutinins are the portion of the virus that binds to host cells, allowing the virus to enter. It is also the portion of the virus that is recognized by antibodies, allowing the immune system to destroy the virus. Hemagglutinin proteins are highly malleable, undergoing frequent mutation of amino acids. As few as three or four mutations are normally enough to prevent an old antibody from recognizing a newly mutated virus — which is why seasonal flu vaccines have to be produced from scratch each year. The hemagglutinin sequence of pandemic H1N1 differs from that of the Spanish flu virus hemagglutin by about 20 percent, which should be enough to allow it to avoid detection by the immune system. Virologist Ian Wilson of the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif., and his colleagues studied the three-di-

mensional structure of the two hemagglutinins. They reported last week in the online version of the journal Science that, despite 80 years of mutations, the two proteins had virtually identical amino acid sequences at a crucial binding site. That allows the two viruses to be recognized by the same antibodies. With colleagues at Vanderbilt, they confirmed this by demonstrating that antibodies against the Spanish flu virus were capable of binding to and neutralizing the swine flu virus. In a separate study, virolo-

H I G H

gist Dr. Gary J. Nabel of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and his colleagues reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine that antibodies produced against the Spanish flu virus protected mice against infection with the swine flu virus and that antibodies against the swine flu virus protected mice from infection by the Spanish flu virus. “This is a surprising result,” Nabel said in a statement. “We wouldn’t have expected that cross-reactive antibodies would be generated against viruses separated by so many years.”

Eloise Mendieta Smith died Monday, February 22, 2010, following a month-long decline in which she was surrounded by loving family, friends, and care-givers at Ashley Manor. Eloise was 93 years old. She was born April 4, 1916 in McDermitt, Nevada, the daughter of Eloise Smith Gaolo and Isabella (Telleria) Mendieta. As a young girl, she worked with her parents on the ranch, and later in boarding houses, a variety of retail stores, and retired from North Pacific Wood Products at age 74. Eloise (known to many as “Gram”) believed in hard work, the power of a penny, and finding joy in playful moments. She generously extended a hand, a hug, and a bit of advice to teachers and students at Elk Meadow Elementary School for over 10 years. Until her last few years, Eloise walked miles a day, talking and joking with all she met, lingering by the sides of small children. She delighted in crafting and crocheting projects for others, filling buckets with wild berries and catching big fish, especially when hers was the biggest. Eloise was the 5th of 12 children. She is survived by two sisters and two brothers. Eloise will be lovingly missed by her daughter, Eleanore (Ellie) Wood of Bend; sons, Ken Smith of Bend, and Gerald Lequerica of LaGrande; as well as grandchildren, Darla WoodWalters, Evan, Kirby and Lacey Smith of Bend, and Las, Joni and Darren Lequerica of LaGrande; eight great-grandchildren, three great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, five sisters, two brothers and her beloved son-in-law, Darwin Wood. A joyful celebration of Eloise Smith’s life will take place Saturday, May 15 4:00 p.m. at Darla Wood-Walters’ home, 22089 Stormy Lane, Bend. In memory of Eloise, the family asks that contributions be made in the manner in which she contributed to life; reach out to a stranger, bring a smile to a child’s face, take no more than your share (then share it with others). And ever so often, wear red.

Charles E. Nelson (Chuck) passed away in his sleep, in Medford, OR. He was 88 years old. Born in Portland, OR, he attended Grant High, U of O, before the war, was on swim team, and Beta Theta Pi and had his own dance band. He was a captain in the Army, Charles E. stationed in Nelson Jr. the Phillipines; went into the lumber industry in the 1950s and owned Creswell Lumber Co., sold, and purchased Graystone Concrete Products in the 1960s; merged with Willamette Concrete Products to form Willamette Graystone in Eugene; sold and moved to Bend in 1970s. He bought Sherfy Candy Co., sold after 2 years and developed Suncraft Inc., with Leon Lay. They sold to a national company in 1985 and retired. He moved with his wife, Lois, to the Rogue Valley Manor in Medford, OR in 2000, and spent the remainder of his full life there. He is survived by his wife, Lois, of 67 years and two children: Chas, retired, living in Bend, and Dianne, retired TWA stewardess, of Port Angeles, WA; two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Services will be held at a later date.

Redmond Continued from B1 The council is expected to vote on the proposal Tuesday. Bend set up its account in August 2009, when city officials worried about a rush of bank failures, according to Finance Director Sonia Andrews. About 50 banks failed in the United States that summer. “The FDIC was hiring all kinds of people in their bank closure division,” Andrews said. “We thought, ‘Oh my, maybe they know something we don’t.” Like Redmond, Bend’s deposits are backed by the FDIC and the collateralization program, so the city is not concerned about losing the money, Andrews said. It is concerned,

however, about temporarily losing access. Bend spends as much as $1.4 million in a single day on payroll or to pay vendors. If a bank failed at the wrong time, the city might, for example, have to delay payroll. By setting $1.75 million aside in its contingency account, Bend hopes no such delay happens, Andrews said. The city has not spent money from that account yet. “What we did is protect ourselves in case (a bank failure) happened to us,” Andrews said. Municipalities rarely set up such accounts like those in Bend or Redmond, according to Judy Whaley-Fultz, the chief administrative officer at the Oregon Department of Treasury. The collateralization pro-

Stan Parris served 6 terms as congressman The Associated Press MATHEWS, Va. — Stanford E. Parris, a former Virginia congressman who served six terms and was an Air Force pilot during the Korean War, has died. He was 80. Parris’ former chief of staff, Dick Leggett, told The Associated Press that he died from heart disease Saturday at his home in rural northern Virginia. Parris, a Republican, ran for governor in 1985 and 1989. He served in Congress from 1973 to 1974 and then returned from 1981 through 1990. He was a member of the Banking and Finance Committee and cautioned about the looming savings and loan crisis.

Nancy Monsarrat packs up her family’s ski equipment after a day on the slopes at Mt. Bachelor on Saturday. Despite being stuck in long lines due to a power outage on the mountain, Monsarrat said the day was still very enjoyable.

Bachelor Continued from B1 Kaufman said most lifts were up and running within 20 minutes after the power outage, but Rainbow and Northwest Express were stopped for nearly 45 minutes, and only reopened to offload those stuck on the lift. Several people trapped at the bottom of Northwest walked out, and those who held out for a ride by snowmobile waited for as long as nearly two hours. People who were at the mountain midday Saturday gave differing accounts of what happened. Allison Vieira, 40, of Medford, said she and her husband and their two daughters were about halfway up the Pine Marten lift when it stopped. The lift began running a few minutes later then stopped again, leaving them stranded for an estimated 40 minutes. At the top of the lift, ski area employees offered them vouchers for hot drinks or soup, Vieira said, but when they got to the lodge, all the soup was gone, and they were refused a cold drink with the vouchers. To make matters worse, in between Vieira’s trips around the base area in search of a refund, her daughter’s ski poles had disappeared. “I don’t want to bring my kids up there again and get stuck, so we’ve been hanging out down here to see if the wind dies down, and they can get the lifts running,” she said. “It’s a lot of money to come ski here and waste half your day.” Pat Hellberg, 54, of Portland, was moments away from getting on the Pine Marten chair when it stopped, but was able to get out of line, go up the Carousel lift and duck over to Skyliner. After three good days of skiing, Hellberg said he could deal with a few problems on his fourth. “We had a great week, it was just kind of weird what happened today,” he said. “You just gotta roll with it.” By 4 p.m., with the rest of the lifts shut down, Mt.

gram is designed to limit municipalities from losing public money when a bank fails. But turning that collateral into cash can, by law, take up to 30 days, Whaley-Fultz said. More likely, it would be a few days before a city would again have access to its money. Since the program’s launch in 2008, the state has not dipped into the program’s funds, according to Whaley-Fultz. Still, banks fail, and that can make local governments nervous, she said. “If I were a local government in this environment, it might make sense to me,” WhaleyFultz said.

“By all accounts, the Pine Party went great, aside from the hiccup midday. It was a wild day. I think I’m going to be writing the longest snow report of my life.” — Alex Kaufman, Mt. Bachelor marketing director was able to squeeze out enough auxiliary power to run Pine Marten at nearly full speed. New arrivals clipped their free tickets to their jackets, and the Pine Party was on. Sean Lowell, 24, of Bend, said he was surprised by how well the snow was holding up nearly an hour and a half past the mountain’s usual closing time. “I came up thinking, $10, great deal,” he said. “But, free! You can’t do better than that.” Carol Sanders, 34, of Bend, said although she’s a season pass holder, she was intrigued by the opportunity to come up and ski in the late afternoon. Cheap late-afternoon skiing is a great deal for locals, Sanders said, especially those who couldn’t ordinarily afford a fullday lift ticket. “I think it’s a great idea. They promoted it well, and they got a lot of the locals up here,” she said. “Everybody I knew was talking about it all week since they announced it. People were talking about it. I hope they do more of it this year.” Kaufman said despite the difficulties for the staff, Mt. Bachelor plans to occasionally open the mountain to late-afternoon skiing for the rest of the spring. “By all accounts, the Pine Party went great, aside from the hiccup midday. It was a wild day. I think I’m going to be writing the longest snow report of my life.” Scott Hammers can be reached at 541-383-0387 or at shammers@bendbulletin.com.

Kitzhaber Continued from B1 Witwer’s company takes into account the number of staff, lengths that staff members commute and travel on campaign business, and the amount of computer and office equipment in use each day. Then the company projects how much carbon dioxide the campaign will produce over the

month and pays a fee that is invested into renewable energy sources, compensating for the carbon dioxide it produces by burning fossil fuels with those activities. Humphrey said he’s hopeful that beginning in April or May, the renewable energy credits will come through Deschutes County’s Knott Landfill, which last year started selling carbon credits.

Never mind white beaches, travel Maui’s odd upcountry By Gary A. Warner The Orange County Register

Hiya! British expatriates gather regularly in Bend

By David Jasper • The Bulletin

oward the end of last weekend’s hourlong get-together of the Bend British Club, Jonathan

Sampson said the biggest misconception Americans have about the British is “they think we don’t have a sense of humor,” a hint of a smile on his face. “It’s just not slapstick.”

KULA, Maui, Hawaii — Maui is called the “Valley Isle,” but let’s face it — most tourists’ topography is limited to beaches, beaches and more beaches. Maui has 81 of them. Each day thousands of visitors arrive at the airport in Kahului and fan out across the narrow isthmus with its sugar mill still belching smoke, turning right to head up to the sand strands at Kaanapali, Napili and Kapalua, or left to the golden shores of Kihei and Wailea. Most pay little more than TR AVE L an awed glance over their shoulders toward the cloud Next week wrapped immensity of Halein Northwest akala, the “house of the sun,” a dormant volcano rising 10,023 Travel: Roseburg and feet from the sea surface that makes up 75 percent of the isthe Umpqua land’s surface. It’s been a long Valley time since it demanded attention — geologists were spewed with ash and lava in the 17th century. I’m not going to be so preposterous as to suggest you ditch the sunscreen and pool chair for a cowboy hat and a sweater and spend your entire Maui vacation upcountry. But slicing out a day or two for exploring the flanks of the volcano is a lot of fun, especially when the heat and the crush of crowds get to you. There’s nobody hawking timeshares in what passes for downtown Kula. See Maui / C4

Sampson was at DiLusso Bakery Cafe in downtown Bend for one of the group’s monthly meetings. More than a dozen were present, representing England and Scotland. Fancy that he should mention humor. The Bend British Club had just spent much of the hour proving the British indeed have humor, a subtle English variety full of wordplay and banter. At times, it was nearly impossible to hear due to the laughter of those present. You could blame their accents; just don’t make the mistake of mentioning your poor accent comprehension in front of the Bend British Club.

Mom fired up after son is stood up by his date Dear Abby: My son, “Peter,” is in college working on a postgraduate degree. He arranged a date with a young woman while they were home over the holidays. After accepting the first date and breaking it, she agreed to a second one. As Peter was driving to pick her up, he called to doublecheck her address only to be told she was still at a previous engagement. Naturally, Peter expected she’d call back when she was free — but she didn’t. There was no explanation, no call or text or any further communication. What is happening to young people today? Do texting and online social networking encourage them to avoid simple human kindness and consideration of others? I think these new devices are giving kids an easy way to get out of difficult and uncomfortable situations. They don’t have to hear the hurt of rejection or the sting of their rudeness through a text or a chat page. Meanwhile, my thoughtful, sensitive son sat home thinking he wasn’t important enough for an explanation! At 26, he’s beginning to think he should just focus on finishing school and forget the dating scene. And if this is the caliber of today’s young women, maybe he should! — Mother of a Good Son Dear Mother: Your son may be thoughtful and sensitive, but he appears to have unfortunate taste in women. You say he is working on a postgraduate degree? How old was the girl — because she appears to have the emotional maturity of a young teenager. Nobody likes rejection, but Peter should consider the source. Rather than giving up on dating, he should look for company among women who are at his intellectual and emotional level — in college or grad school or perhaps a little older. Dear Abby: I am a 29-year-old female who would like to know why people feel compelled to tell random strangers to “smile.”

DEAR ABBY

Favorite television series returning, especially in the crime department By Chuck Barney

I was in the market the other night and a man came walking by me saying, “You dropped something,” and was pointing to the floor. I looked down and said, “I don’t see anything.” He then told me, “You dropped your smile.” Abby, I was SO not amused. I turned around going back to my business saying, “Oh, OK.” I hate when people do this. It happens to me a lot and has most of my life. People — especially seniors — say, “Don’t you dare smile for me, don’t you dare!” Or, “Smile! You’re too cute not to smile.” An old gentleman said, “Oh, she’s like ice — so cold, never smiles.” What can I do if this happens again? I don’t see the need to walk around the store or sit at my desk at work with a Cheshire cat grin on my face all day. Any suggestions? — Offended in Gilroy, Calif. Dear Offended: The man who asked if you had “lost” something may have been making a clumsy attempt to pick you up. That sometimes happens in markets. As to the “older people” who comment on your expression — or lack thereof — they may consider themselves so “senior” that they can “coax” you into doing as they would like — like “cootchie-cooing” a baby to make it laugh on cue. Making personal remarks to strangers is, of course, rude. My advice to you is to distance yourself from those individuals as quickly as possible. Speaking personally, if I was approached the way you have been, the last thing I’d be inclined to do is smile or engage them at all. I’d be offended, too. 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.

“Celebrity Apprentice” 9 tonight, NBC On “Celebrity Apprentice,” the week’s challenge goes horribly awry for one team when egos collide and a member proves to be truly inept. Of course, we could write that same log line for this show every single week. “The Pacific” 9 tonight, HBO “The Pacific” temporarily leaves the battlefield as troops rehab in Australia following the brutal Guadalcanal campaign. Meanwhile, Basilone is on his way to becoming a big-time celebrity after being awarded the Medal of Honor. “Trauma” 9 p.m. Monday, NBC Oh, those poor folks on “Trauma.” Don’t they ever get a break? Not only are the ratings dismal, this week a sniper is on the loose in San Francisco. Better duck and cover. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” 9 p.m. Monday, Logo Things get zanier on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” as the remaining drama queens welcome Cloris Leachman and Debbie Reynolds for a challenge involving some wild makeovers. “Saving Grace” 10 p.m. Monday, TNT Holly Hunter returns for the fourth and shortened final season of “Saving Grace.” That gives her troubled character nine episodes to get her life together. It may not be nearly enough. “V” 10 p.m. Tuesday, ABC After a four-month absence,

In time for Easter, Charlton Heston stars in the 1956 motion picture “The Ten Commandments” airing Saturday on ABC. the alien Visitors of “V” return to prime time for what promises to be a raucous string of eight episodes. But please don’t watch if you have an aversion to lizard skin. “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” 10 p.m. Tuesday, USA Say goodbye to Vincent D’Onofrio. The veteran actor is departing “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” but not before appearing in the two-parter that opens the crime drama’s ninth season tonight. “Law & Order: SVU” 10 p.m. Wednesday, NBC The parade of attention-grabbing guest appearances continues on “Law & Order: SVU.” Tonight, Jaclyn Smith drops by, playing a former patrol cop. Sounds perfectly angelic to us. “Bones” 8 p.m. Thursday, Fox “Lost” did it, why can’t “Bones”? For its milestone 100th episode, the quirky crime series is going back in time. Yes, fans

will learn how Booth and Brennan met — and witness their very first clash. “Fringe” 9 p.m. Thursday, Fox Fans of TV’s mind-blowing creep fest have reason to celebrate. Not only does the show return from a two-month hiatus this week, it recently was renewed for a third season. That means we’ll be treated to even more terrifying occurrences and macabre crimes. In the “spring premiere” — the first of eight new episodes — Walter (John Noble) flashes back to 1985 while explaining Peter’s (Joshua Jackson) otherworldly origins to Olivia (Anna Torv). Far out. “Miami Medical” 10 p.m. Friday, CBS “Miami Medical” is about a team of expert surgeons who excel in the “golden hour” — the 60 minutes during which a critically injured patient’s life hangs in the balance. And now we’ll see how much life this new show

“The Ten Commandments” 7 p.m. Saturday, ABC Cecil B. DeMille’s massive biblical spectacle, “The Ten Commandments,” returns for its annual Easter airing. And, as always, the parting of the Red Sea looks a lot better on the screen than it does on the Universal Studios tram tour.

RAMATHORN Ramathorn is a gorgeous 2 year old Shepherd mix in search of his forever home. This high energy guy is looking for a high energy family that can give him all the training and stimulation that he needs. This sweet boy came to the shelter as a stray and for this reason we know nothing of his previous history. Ramathorn would be a great candidate for some basic obedience classes as well as crate training, to help him to become the well rounded dog that he has the potential to be.

This image released March 24 shows a copy of a sign to be placed in Nadya Suleman’s front yard for a fee to offset the cost of her father’s mortgage. Suleman, the mother of octuplets and a total of 14 children, is living in the home currently in default on a $450,000 balloon payment due two weeks ago.

Will porn, PETA be octomom’s saviors? By John Rogers The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Nadya Suleman’s octuplets have brought her plenty of fame, but fortune appears to be another story. Her father, Ed Doud, has defaulted on a $450,000 balloon payment on a $500,000 house he bought last year for the family to live in, mortgage holder Amer Haddadin said Wednesday. Haddadin told The Associated Press he plans to file foreclosure papers in court within days if he doesn’t get his money. Although Suleman’s lawyer, Jeff Czech, said earlier this week his client’s father was hoping to work something out, he was blunt when it came to the balloon payment: “Mr. Doud, at this moment, doesn’t have $450,000 to pay off,” he said. In a brief e-mail Wednesday, he added that he was negotiating with Haddadin’s attorney for more time to refinance. Not that Suleman doesn’t have the opportunity to raise the money quickly, although not in ways she would want to. Steven Hirsch, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, one of the world’s largest purveyors of adult films, announced this week that his company would pay off Suleman’s mortgage if she would make a porn film. Hirsch assured it would be, well, as tasteful as those things can be with her input on male co-stars and script. He declined to say whether Suleman had expressed interest in the offer, but Czech indicated she had rejected it out of hand. He did say that Suleman had accepted a much more modest

offer from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — $5,000 to put a sign in her front yard proclaiming, “Don’t Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter.” As an added incentive, the animal rights organization had said Wednesday it would throw in a month’s supply of veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs for Suleman and her 14 children, who range in ages from 1 to 8. “No porn. Just PETA. Nadya prefers animals over men,” Czech said in an e-mail exchange with The Associated Press. When Suleman’s children were born in January 2009, it seemed inconceivable that a little more than a year later she might be scrounging up hot dog offers from an animal rights group. The arrival of the longestsurviving octuplets in history was hailed as a medial miracle, and it appeared a joyful public was ready to line up to help raise them, providing free diapers, food and other necessities. There was also talk of book and movie deals, and perhaps a reality show along the lines of “Jon & Kate Plus 8.” But public opinion quickly turned against her when it was discovered she was a single mother who had conceived eight children by in vitro fertilization when she already had six youngsters to raise. What’s more, she was unemployed and surviving on a combination of student loans, disability checks for other children and workers’ compensation checks for an old back injury. Her father bought her current home in La Habra, southeast of Los Angeles.

Enjoy site Maui while you summit Haleakala By Gary A. Warner The Orange County Register

Getting to and from the 10,023-foot summit of Haleakala is the goal of many daytrippers who come to upcountry Maui, as they whiz by all the things to see on the way there and back. Too many visitors get hung up on speeding up the mountain to the summit, then making the long slog back down, skipping the most interesting upcountry sites. But I know that for many visitors, going all that way and not reaching the summit would be unthinkable. It’s one of the oldest parts of the National Park system — set aside along with the Hawaii volcanoes in 1916. The parks were split in two in 1961. My advice is that if you are going to include reaching the summit of Haleakala on a trip to the upcountry, either expect to leave very early and get home very late or plan to stay the night in Kula or Makawao to allow time to see everything. It’s a three-hour drive each way from the Kihei beach areas to the summit. Add a half-hour for Kaanapali. From the airport, it’s a little over 90 minutes. Much of that time is taken with the last 35 miles or so from Kula to the summit on switchback roads often crowded in the summer with tourist cars. I know I will probably get a lot of angry notes, but I think the popular sunrise and sunset times are overrated. Most any hotel or one of the tour shops in Lahaina or Kihei can book you a van tour that will get you there for the sun coming up or going down. It’s a long, hard drive up to the crater and when the sun isn’t out, it is very windy and very cold. I’ve seen one sunrise and one sunset on Haleakala in my life and that’s enough of that. I am sure for others, they couldn’t go enough. Try it and decide for yourself. I prefer to drive my own rental car up around midmorning on a clear day when you can see all the way to the Big Island on one side and Lanai on the other. By midafternoon, the crown of Haleakala is often draped with clouds, blocking views. If you go, dress in pants and a jacket, and bring blankets — it’s often near freezing in the predawn hours. When the light comes up, you’ll see a stark, red, Mars-like landscape. It’s vacant except for a few observatories off to one side, though as late as the 1920s, ranchers would graze cattle in the dormant caldera. Even during midday, it is windy and cool at the summit, but the treeless crags also leave you exposed to the sun — wear plenty of sunblock, sunglasses and a hat. The sunglasses also help with the grainy sand that whips around the observation areas.

If you go Haleakala National Park is open year-round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except for severe weather closures. The Haleakala Visitor Center, at 9,740 feet above sea level, is open 5:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Phone: 808-572-4400; or visit www.nps.gov/hale.

Continued from C1 Up here, you get pines instead of palms. The scent of lavender instead of the smell of the sea. A landscape whose white picket fences and strands of barbed wire might remind people of the Texas hill country or Santa Barbara or eastern Virginia, except the slopes always go up, up, up. “It was 39 degrees the other night,” said John Davis, a teacher who moved from the beachside resort of Kihei to Kula. “Living by the ocean, you forget what it is like to be cold. Up here, you can wear long pants and pajamas and sleep under blankets at night.” Grab a map and follow my play-by-play for a day on the mountain. Go where the fourlane highway gives way to twolane and then twisting, undulating side roads with blind corners and hairpin turns. Those who take the time to turn from makai (toward the ocean) to explore mauka (toward the mountains) find a unique world of tropical cowboys, otherworldly gardens, plantation-style B&Bs, quirky animal farms, spirits (religious and drinkable) and the best restaurant outside of a resort gate. Upcountry Maui is the first place I visited on my own dime, to see a friend who had moved to Ulupono and 25 years later has migrated even further up Haleakala’s flank to Kula. I’ve stayed on a protea farm and celebrated Thanksgiving in a former general store turned celebrated dining spot. Start out in the hippie-turnedyuppie enclave of Paia, where the mountain roads hit the seaside. Continue up through Makawao, an old cowboy town that’s now full of yoga studios and touristy trinket shops but is 10 degrees cooler than on the beach. Heading inland, Baldwin Road steepens as it climbs through cabbage and pineapple fields before pulling into the town of Makawao. The 19th-century village battles to hold on to its feel for the days of the paniolos — Hawaiian cowboys who still compete at the Makawao Rodeo Grounds. The mix of clapboard buildings, trendy restaurants, barber shops and coffee bars is a big draw, and the traffic can slow to a crawl during the summer and on weekends when Maui residents head for the hills. Makawao is a good spot to get out and stretch your legs and fill your tummy on the way to the crater. Polli’s, a one-time vegetarian Mexican restaurant, now draws California expatriates who need to satisfy their chicken enchilada and beef taco cravings. Casanova’s Italian restaurant is open only for dinner, but you can go to the coffee house and bakery, sit on the lanai and enjoy watching the passers-by. If you are just passing through, stop by Komoda’s Store on Baldwin Avenue, where the pastries are among the best on the island. The cream puffs are the most popular, along with Malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts). Golf nuts will want to stop in Pukalani, which means “hole in the heavens.” Just to the southwest of Makawao on the Haleakala Highway, the town is home to the Pukalani Country Club, the only links in the area. Heading south out of Pukalani, stay on Highway 37 and make a short stop at the Church of the Holy Ghost. This 1897 octagonal structure is an island landmark, one of the most important churches from the plantation era when exporting sugar and other commodities was more important than importing tourists. The road winds higher still, past the black and white cows, where cypress dot the slopes and cows meander in green fields. There is a 1930s gas station with a sign warning “No smoking bruddah.”

Rocks balance on windswept cliffs in Maui, Hawaii. The protea belt around Kula produces fields of brilliantly colored, hefty, bulbous flowers that look like something out of a psychedelic science-fiction movie. Kula Botanical Garden showcases the flowers, along with sandalwood and other island flora. If you are looking to buy, head up Upper Kimo Road to Cloud’s Rest Protea Farm, where four dozen or more varieties are grown and sold. Kula is also home to Alii Kula Lavender Farm, where walking tours will take you through the purple herb garden. Owner Alii Chang can take you on a golf cart tour of the 45 types of lavender on his farm. Set up a lunch with lavender seasonings on lamb or ono. Or just dawdle with a spot of tea and lavender scones, watching cows wander through the lavender fields while overhead tandem paragliding tourists float through the clouds to settle into a sloping, soft grassy field. Somewhere up in the trees is a zipline tour for those who need the adrenaline rush of speeding through trees like Luke Skywalker in “The Empire Strikes Back.” Leave with all things lavender — soap, candles or bath salts. The farthest point out on an upcountry day trip is usually Ulupalakua Ranch on the south end of Highway 37 before it makes the big scary (and mostly off limits to rental cars) turn toward Hana. Tedeschi Vineyards is Hawaii’s most famous winery. Grapes that go into sparkling white wines and dry reds are grown on the southern flank of Haleakala. There’s also fermented pineapple juice, all sold from a 19th-century tasting room that used to be a local jail. If you time it right, you can have lunch across the street at Ulupalakua Ranch General Store, where burgers, beef or buffalo, are barbecued on a big outdoor grill from midmorning to midafternoon. Vegetarians beware — the burgers are so fresh you can hear the future patties mooing out back. It’s all served in a village so laid back that during my last visit a cat lolled undisturbed in the sun — smack in the middle of a crosswalk on the empty highway. On the way back, fuel up for the drive to the beach with a blast of 100 percent organically grown caffeine at Grandma’s Coffee House in Keokea. Beware the awesome sugar high from the huge cinnamon rolls behind the counter. A favorite kids’ stop is Surfing

This display of mailboxes can be found on a drive through Maui’s upcountry.

Goats play on old surfboards at the Surfing Goat Dairy Farm, which produces gourmet cheeses in Maui, Hawaii. Goat Dairy, where German expatriates Thomas and Eva Kafsack churn out award-winning goat cheese spread drawn from the milk of more than 80 goats who call 42 acres of Haleakala home. Visitors get to tour the European-style operation, with its Milk Room, Ripening Room and Cheese Room. Kids will like meeting the “kids,” while adults savor the creamy smooth cheese that comes in less expensive “Aloha” and “Paradise” varieties, while connoisseurs go for the “Shark Bite” collection named for the bite it takes out of your wallet. A 2-ounce jar mixed with truffles will set you back $26. Continued next page

So it will take some seriously good eats to pull away from the tiki torches and ocean views. Haliimaile General Store won’t disappoint. Chef Bev Gannon’s “new Hawaiian” cuisine has been drawing diners up the hill to the old clapboard store in Makawao for

more than 20 years. Start with the signature crab pizza appetizer, then move on to coconut seafood curry and finish with Haliimaile pineapple upsidedown cake. After a long day on the mountain, go work off the food with a nighttime stroll on the beach, making sure to look back once in awhile to see if the moon is peaking out over the “house of the sun.”

Club Continued from C1 As club member Karen Wightman, 45, asserts, “We don’t have accents.” Wightman first visited the U.S. in 1993, when she was in Salem for the 50th wedding anniversary of her uncle and aunt, a G.I. bride. Growing up in England, Wightman says she’d never had a strong desire to visit the U.S. “Some people have a desire: ‘Oh I want to go there, I want to go there.’ I didn’t,” she says. Oregon was the first place she visited, “and I loved it,” she says. She returned a year later, and moved to Bend 15 years ago. Sitting next to her was Maureen “Mo” Everett, who says she traveled all around the Pacific Northwest, enough to know that, when it came time to retire, “Oregon won it hands down. Literally, Bend was the choice,” she says. According to club organizer Morag Sampson, the group was originally started years ago by two brothers from England. However, it was largely inactive when she and her husband, Jonathan Sampson, both physical therapists, arrived in Bend

Once she got wind that there existed such a club, she began its revival. The group’s members range from mid-20s to 80s, and now get together regularly for coffee and British holidays such as Guy Fawkes Night. For the most part, prospective members hear of the club through word of mouth. The club’s roster has seen as many as 40 people, but most get-togethers attract about 10. Sheena Fischer was there, representing Scotland. Originally from Dundee, on Scotland’s east coast, she left at 22, after “I met a fellow from Bend, Oregon, back in 1970,” she says. Paul Gauthier and Shari Hogshead were at the meeting together.

The best fish house in Maui By Gary A. Warner The Orange County Register

Some visitors to Maui go to Haleakala for to celebrate the sunset. I go to Mama’s Fish House. It’s warmer, and the drinks are better. There are plenty of great, fancy meals to be had in the islands, but the most Hawaiian experience for me is moi — the Pacific threadfin that was once “kapu” (forbidden) to anyone but royalty. The best place I’ve ever tasted the ex-illicit delicacy was at Mama’s, a north coast Maui landmark. Its availability on any given day depends on the luck of local fishermen. Part of the allure of Mama’s Fish House is that it is everything you’d expect from a fantasy version of a Hawaiian restaurant. The decor is the retroPolynesian, it sits in semi-isolation on a scenic stretch of beach the locals call Channels, and the tropical drinks will knock you for a loop. Mama’s is one of the more expensive fish places in Hawaii, and I’ve read plenty of online message boards over the years that have branded it as overrated and overpriced. But the crowd always waiting to get in the door shows the flip side. If you want good, cheap fresh fish, head for Alexander’s in Kihei. If you want the full-blown tiki torches-andmai-tais mix, head for Mama’s. I call the higher prices a “charm surcharge.” Start out with one of its fishbowl-sized mai tais — the best I’ve tasted in all the islands. On the list of appetizers, my favor-

Yee-Lee Yap, moved here five years ago. Brown, director of Internet strategy at The Mandala Agency, worked for three years at a Silicon Valley startup. When the dot-com bubble burst, he moved to Singapore for five years, where he met his wife. A friend of his was working in Bend, and coming back to the States began to seem like a great idea, he says, “Oregon being a great place to be. Came over, had a look, decided it was a really nice place to be, and we moved back about five years ago.” “It’s a great place for the outdoors, whereas, in Singapore, there are just three types of weather, he says: “Hot and wet, hot and wet, hot and wet.” He’s been coming to these gettogethers for about four months, he says. It’s nice to bond with other Brits, he adds, but he’s not exactly homesick. “Some Brits seek out other Brits, some don’t,” he explains. “It’s never really concerned me, not being amongst Brits, but it’s great to get together with one’s heritage from time to time. Occasionally. If only because locals won’t listen to your (complaining) all the time,” he adds, laughing. The conversation then turned to some of the differences be-

Coconut milk is poured over a plate of Lau-Lau at Mama’s Fish House, a landmark in Paia, Maui. ites include macadamia nut crab cakes and Maui onion soup. There’s usually a long list of fresh fish on the menu. How fresh? The menu, which changes daily, includes details of who caught it, where and how it is prepared. So you can order, say, “Monchong caught by Kevin Awa over the deep sea ledge off Kona, upcountry style with caramelized Maui onion, tomato, avocado and jasmine rice” or “Lehi caught by Raymond Otsubo bottom fishing off the

backside of Haleakala, sauteed with Haiku tomatoes, garlic, capers, white wine and lemongrass rice.” A good way to cut the high cost of a Mama’s meal is to sleep at Mama’s. For one thing, the strong drinks can make the long drive back to Kihei or Kaanapali an iffy proposition. Mama’s has rentals up against the rocky beach, each with a DVD and CD player, washer, dryer and a kitchen. But the best amenity of all is if you stay, you’re automatically

extended “kamiana rates” in the dining room, the traditional 20 percent discount offered locals at many Hawaiian restaurants and other businesses. When dinner, drinks and dessert can top $100 per person, that’s not a small consideration. Before or after dinner, wander the path down to rocky Kuau Cove. It’s not an A-grade Hawaiian beach, what with the craggy volcanic boulders and backwashing waves. But it’s a nice backdrop to a memorable meal.

tween Brits and Americans. Morag Sampson is quick to note that the Bend British Club is not down on Americans. Joan Heaton is not from England, but rather New England. “We tolerate her,” interjects Wightman. Joan is married to a “real Brit,” Mervyn Heaton, a retired electrical engineer who came to Bend by way of Canada and then California. She says she doesn’t “hear bashing of Americans at all.” Chimes in a laughing Brown: “If we do find fault, it’s not just with Americans, it’s with everybody, right?” The differences between Brits and Americans are pronounced (so to speak). For example, did you know that “mandatory” is pronounced “man-DAT-ery” over there? “And what’s wrong with ‘herbs’?” inquires Brown, his “h” not silent in the least, the way we’d pronounce the plant stuff in America. “I guess there’s a lot of guys named ‘Herb,’” I try by way of explanation.

Then there’s the whole chips (French fries) and crisps (potato chips) problem. “It’s just wrong to serve a salad with fish and chips,” Wightman says. Don’t ask what “fanny pack” means in Britain. As Morag Sampson says, “You don’t want to know.” But if you do head to England, you might want to call it a “bum bag” instead. And there, a “rubber” means an eraser. There’s no consensus when talking about what they call gar-

bage trucks in England. That’s just the start of the confusion. “What about driving on the other side of the road?” I mistakenly ask. “We don’t drive on the other side of the road,” says Wightman. “Same as accents,” adds Brown, laughing. “We don’t have accents.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or at djasper@bendbulletin.com.

NOIDA, India — Bhisham Singh Yadav, father of the groom, is stressed. His rented Lexus got stuck behind a bullock cart. He has hired a truck to blast Hindi pop, but it is too big to maneuver through his village. At least his grandest gesture, evidence of his upward mobility, is circling overhead. The helicopter has arrived. Yadav, a wheat farmer, has never flown, nor has anyone else in the family. And this will only be a short trip: delivering his son less than two miles to the village of the bride. But like many families in this expanding suburb of New Delhi, the Yadavs have come into money, and they want everyone to know it. “People will remember that his son went on a helicopter for his marriage,” a cousin, Vikas Yadav, shouted over the din. “People should know they are spending money. For us, things like this are the stuff of dreams.” The Yadavs are members of a new economic caste in India: nouveau riche farmers. Land acquisition for expanding cities and industry is one of the most bitterly contentious issues in India, rife with corruption and violent protests. Yet, in some areas, it has created pockets of overnight wealth, especially in the outlying regions of the capital, New Delhi. By Western standards, few of these farmers are truly rich. But in India, where the annual per capita income is about $1,000 and where roughly 800 million people live on less than $2 a day, some farmers have gotten windfalls by selling land for several million rupees (1 million rupees is about $22,000). Over the years, more than 50,000 acres of farmland have been purchased as Noida has evolved into a suburb of 300,000 people with shopping malls and office parks. That has created what might seem to be a pleasant predicament: What to do with the cash? Some farmers have bought more land, banked money, invested in their children’s educations or made improvements to their homes. In Punjab, a few farmers told the Indian news media they wanted to use their land riches to move to Canada. But still others are broke after indulging in spending sprees for cars, holiday trips and other luxuries. “They go for Land Rovers,” said N. Sridharan, a professor at the School of Planning and Architecture in New Delhi. “They buy more televisions, and quite a lot of money also goes into drinking. They try to blow it out.” Much of this conspicuous consumption is bad financial planning by farmers who

Relatives of groom Kapil Yadav dance during a wedding procession in Noida, a village in the eastern outskirts of Delhi, India, on Feb. 18. The Yadav family is one of the many farmers in India that have become wealthy overnight by selling their farmland for the growth of India’s capital, New Delhi. Groom Kapil Yadav gets off the helicopter as he lands on his bride’s village, Bahlolpur. Kapil Yadav’s father, Bhisham Singh Yadav, paid $8,327 for the chopper rental. “It is for my happiness, for the happiness of my son,” said Yadav, 36. “In my marriage, I went in a car. But that was a different era.” have little education or experience with the seductive heat of cold cash. But some sociologists say such ostentatious spending, especially on weddings, is rooted in the desire of lower castes to show off their social mobility, partly by emulating the practices of the upper castes. In India, as in many places, a wedding has always been equal parts religious ceremony, theatrical production and wealth demonstration project. For the country’s elite, the latest matrimonial trend is destination weddings in Bali or palaces in Rajasthan. For the new rich, hiring a helicopter is motivated by the same impulses for excitement and one-upmanship. “Everyone wants to be better than the others,” said Subhash Goyal, whose travel company handles three or four helicopter weddings every year in the Delhi region. “This is how the new rich behave. They want to show off and say, ‘I have more money than you.’” On the morning of his son’s wedding, Yadav sat in the shabby brick courtyard of his village home, finalizing the last details

of a ceremony that seemed to straddle different centuries. He had earned about $109,000 selling three acres of his ancestral land. He banked some of the money, renovated his house, bought a small Hyundai and purchased three more acres to continue farming. He estimates that his share of the wedding — the bride’s father pays a bigger share — will cost him $13,000, including $8,327 for the chopper. “It is for my happiness, for the happiness of my son,” said Yadav, 36. “In my marriage, I went in a car. But that was a different era.” Continued next page

Photographers take photos of groom Kapil Yadav, 19, center, in front of the helicopter in Noida, a village in the eastern outskirts of New Delhi. Beyond the helicopter rental, a Reenu Rock Star truck was rented to lead the wedding procession, while blasting Hindi pop music. From previous page As the family began the traditional procession through the village, his son, Kapil Yadav, 19, was dressed in embroidered finery atop a white horse. Yadav’s rented white Lexus finally got around the bullock cart; he was taking it to the bride’s village while his son rode in the chopper. As another touch, Yadav also had hired a truck — the Reenu Rock Star 2010 Hi-Fi DJ — to lead the procession. It was playing Hindi pop so loudly that the brick homes of the village seemed to shake. Then a problem arose: The truck was stuck at a tight corner, and the procession was pinned between the truck and a herd of water buffaloes. As people slipped around the marooned Reenu Rock Star, another problem materialized: The helicopter was already circling above. Usually, the procession is a slow parade to wave to neighbors. But the Yadavs had rented the helicopter by the hour, so everyone started running, sidestepping the piles of water buffalo dung and the channel of open sewage. The corpulent mother of the groom, her flesh spilling out of her sari, giggled as she barreled toward the arriving aircraft. “Oh my God!” she exclaimed. “We are so happy!” The helicopter landed in a clearing. In the distance, the concrete skeletons of new apartment

towers were clouded in a haze. Hundreds of villagers surrounded the small blue helicopter, which was guarded by a detail of local police officers. Then the groom and two relatives jumped in, and the blue bird rose over the village, as Yadav hopped in the Lexus and roared toward the bride’s village. The ride took five minutes, and Yadav barely beat the arriving chopper. When the son stepped onto solid ground, he was wearing a garland made of 100 rupee notes. The helicopter was to return in the morning, after the wedding, to deliver the newly-

weds back to the groom’s village and the rest of their lives. But as the white-haired pilot prepared to depart, the father of the bride, Davinder Singh Yadav, pulled him close. “Please take it over the village a few times before you leave,” he shouted. “The village is so big. Everybody needs to see it.” A moment later, as the copter circled above the small farming houses, the father said: “The whole village will remember. The whole world will remember.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, March 28, 2010: This year, you will have a little too much on your plate for your taste. Study new ways of approaching responsibilities, perhaps in a more innovative and beneficial way. Express your good intentions and stay centered, and you will discover that you succeed. At the same time, be willing to let go of what doesn’t work in your life. If you are single, check out a potential sweetie. This person might not be all that he or she seems to be. If you are attached, express more nurturing to your significant other. Both of you will gain. VIRGO picks up on the details. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH No matter which way you go, others seem to want the impossible. The good news is you are resourceful. The bad news is you only have a limited amount of energy. Talks resolve little. Let others land before taking any action. Tonight: Think “tomorrow.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Friends want one thing, and loved ones seem to be strong in their desires. Though you might see opposing ideas and plans, it doesn’t mean you cannot somehow mix it all together. Tap into your ingenuity, and find solutions. Surprises just happen. Tonight: Go for fun. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Stay close to home,

especially if plans change. How a friend presents him- or herself might feel off. Stay centered, and refuse to take anything personally. Give yourself the space to do your thing, if possible. Tonight: Chill out in a favorite way. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might misunderstand someone’s comments. Rest assured this person means well. Unexpected developments occur around friends and loved ones. You cannot say that you are bored, although you might say that you have had enough. Tonight: Go with the swing of things. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH Proceed in a certain manner. A partner expresses his or her needs, thoughts and opinions. Be careful with financial commitments. You could be on overload with so much demand. Take some time just for yourself. Tonight: Put on your headphones. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You know what you want. A key friend or loved one sends a disconcerting message. When others act in a strange or unanticipated manner, you seize the moment and opportunity. Make plans, but stay in touch with your needs, too. Tonight: As you like it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HH Vanish into your own world. Your nerves could be fried. New technology might be a factor in what is going on. Key partners or friends say they understand, but do they? Tonight: In the whirlwind of life. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Don’t take off and spend the day alone. A child or loved

one could be quite challenging. Be flattered that this person wants so much of your time. Juggling different concerns could become your field of expertise. Tonight: Only what you want.

Unscripted — and honest — ‘Evenings with Kevin Smith’ By Robert Butler McClatchy-Tribune News Service

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — You don’t expect piety from a pottymouthed guy who made a movie called “Dogma” that savaged the religion of his childhood. Nevertheless, Kevin Smith says he always prays before going onstage for one of his “Evenings With Kevin Smith.” It’s a simple prayer — “Lord, let me be honest” — but it says a lot about Smith and his relationship with his fiercely faithful fans. “People love it when you get real,” the 39-year-old Smith said in a recent phone conversation. “When you treat them honestly, they respond.” It’s not stand-up comedy, Smith said. No jokes, no impersonations, no script. Instead, it’s a Q&A between Smith and the audience, who typically barrage him with queries about his career, his films and his personal life. These evenings are crammed with hilarious show-biz anecdotes, Smith’s often sardonic opinions on current events and, occasionally, some dead-serious musings. “I answer everything,” Smith said. “At a recent Chicago show, the last question was about the night my dad died. I told them, ‘Bear with me because I might get emotional.’ And, in fact, I started crying at the end. Few modern celebrities have the sort of intense relationship with their fans that Smith enjoys. His blog (www.viewaskew .com) is hugely popular (currently it’s dominated by Smith’s dissection of a recent incident in which he was thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight for being too fat). He tweets a dozen times a day at www.twitter .com/thatkevinsmith. “Back in the day, when I first started out, the only way to gauge how you were doing was to read the critics or check out the Box

Kevin Smith, director of “Clerks” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” says the one thing you can expect from “Evenings with Kevin Smith” is honesty. Office figures. Now I can wake up in L.A. on the day my movie opens and on the Internet I’m already hearing from somebody who saw the first show in New York.” While many fans know him only as the writer/director of outrageous films like “Clerks,” “Chasing Amy” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” Smith’s followers — who often refer to themselves as citizens of the View Askewniverse — faithfully keep up on his many enterprises: making movies, producing TV shows, writing comic books, doing his live show. “If you do just one thing, people will eventually get sick of you. The longer you stick around, the more people can’t stand you. So it’s important for me to spin lots of plates, just in case people want to knock one of my plates off the stick. “The end game is to be just successful enough to do what I love to do, which is to be paid to be a professional teenager.” Smith was especially upbeat during this phone conversation because the day before he finally had obtained financing for “Red

State,” his long-dreamed-of film inspired by Fred Phelps, whose anti-homosexual campaign and protests at funerals of American military personnel are now at the center of a First Amendment case before the U.S. Supreme Court. “This has been the hardest film to get made,” Smith said. “It’s not commercial. It’s a dark, twisted little political horror flick. I figured I’d have to pay for it myself, but someone came through.” “There’s no such thing as a dopey question. In fact, the worse the question is, the better for me, because we can have some fun with it. “Of course, some of the stuff people say haunts you. You carry it the rest of your life, like herpes.” Such as? “One guy at a show came up to the mic and said, ‘Let’s say your wife is in a horrible accident, and the only way to save her is to put her brain in the body of an 8year-old girl.’ And then he wants to know what our sex life would be like. “Marty Scorsese never gets questions like that.”

Spilling beyond South by Southwest’s main courses By Jon Pareles

Theresa Wayman of Warpaint, a four-woman band, contributed more complex and intriguing music — songs that evolved from hypnotically intertwining guitar patterns to muscular funk — surrounding lyrics about lovers’ quarrels.

New York Times News Service

AUSTIN, Texas — They came to play: in clubs, churches, parking garages, conference rooms, clothing stores, backyards and streets, from early in the morning to early the next morning. If anything could dispel the notion that musicians are slackers, it’s the South By Southwest Music and Media Conference, four days of nearly nonstop music by performers known and unknown, many of them playing two or three times a day in hopes of ... well, another gig. The 24th annual SXSW filled every available space in downtown Austin with musicians clamoring for attention. Where that attention might lead — a live booking, a recording, a license for a song, an advertising tie-in — is less certain than ever in a music business that’s struggling to sell recordings. But the corporate sponsors that swarm SXSW know that music draws a crowd, one that’s treated as a market for just about anything except, paradoxically, recorded music. With daytime events that may now outnumber the official SXSW showcases (in more than 80 locations), a lot of live music is also free here. The conference spilled through the streets in a frenetic mixture of partying and deal-making, sustained by musicians’ determination to be heard, regardless of the state of the music business. South By Southwest started in 1987 as a showcase for Texas music and mushroomed with performers from other regional and independent scenes and, soon, from major labels. With those labels now imploding, multimillion-selling musicians are also grappling for attention. This year’s SXSW included shows by Muse, Smokey Robinson, Jakob Dylan and two bands making a new start, Stone Temple Pilots and Hole. Two-thirds of the Dixie Chicks, the sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, introduced their new group, Court Yard Hounds, with multiple shows. Hole’s return — more than a decade after its last live shows, with an entirely new lineup behind Courtney Love — was a glimpse of old-school rock stardom. In professionally noisy grunge rockers and newer power ballads, Love growled, rasped and howled; between them she trash-talked and played diva, confident that the audience was fascinated by her. SXSW was and still is a place where undergrounds clamor for larger audiences. But this year the music they were making didn’t sound so underground. It wasn’t so long ago that indierock — which dominates SXSW, despite representation of Americana, hip-hop, metal, free improvisation and more — prided itself on being slightly elusive, deep enough to reward a second and third listen and a look at lyrics. This year catchiness was king, with few misgivings about being too accessible. Bands weren’t

counting on a second glance. Rockers kept things simple in bands like Best Coast, led by the songwriter Bethany Cosentino, which harked back to 1960s girl groups and Joan Jett, and Free Energy, which recycles Top 40 rock from the early 1970s. Warpaint, a four-woman band from Los Angeles, had more complex and intriguing music — songs that evolved from hypnotically intertwining guitar patterns to muscular funk — surrounding lyrics about lovers’ quarrels. Marina and the Diamonds — the stage name of Marina Diamandis, a Greek-Welsh songwriter — performed smart, concise songs about growing up and romance, in keyboard-driven tunes that mingled Abba and operetta. Some of the most packed shows were by leaders of a much-blogged microtrend variously known as glo-fi and chillwave: Neon Indian, Washed Out, Small Black, Memory Tapes, Toro y Moi. They’re solo acts or minimal bands, often with a laptop at their core, and they trade on memories of electropop from the 1980s, with bouncing, blip-

Frightened Rabbit, of Scotland, performed its Britpop anthem to the South by Southwest audience on March 17. “Oh the loneliness and the scream to prove to everyone that I exist,” sang Scott Hutchison. Hole, with front-diva Courtney Love, returned to South by Southwest more than a decade after its last live performance. The noisy, grunge rockers played an entirely new lineup, which included oldschool rock and power ballads.

ping dance-music hooks (and often weaker lead voices). It’s recession-era music: low-budget and danceable. No one can take in more than a small fraction of the more than 2,000 bands on the schedule, and the move toward pop immediacy that I heard could be a sampling error. But it may also signal an adaptation, instinctive or strategic, to an increasingly impatient audience — one with gigabytes

of music in a pocket, and countless other choices a click away online — and to a music market where recordings have diminished importance. A song licensed for a soundtrack or a commercial, one way musicians still get paid for recordings, needs to register clearly and directly; the same goes for music heard live, as musicians’ careers tilt toward performing rather than sales of

recordings. Lingering over music, both in the recording process and as a listener, may turn out to have been a luxury from the album era, now disappearing. And while pop simplicity can be a fine corrective to self-indulgence, it can also grow shallow. Still, one of the best events at the festival was one of the most basic: a showcase of New Orleans bounce, the raunchy, local hip-hop style that developed in the 1990s but is only now escaping its hometown. The beat is fast, syncopated and relentless, and bounce fans know exactly what it’s for: shaking rumps at high speed. Katey Red, a tall transsexual in a black sequined dress and high heels, rattled off rhymes about sex and prostitution. No subtlety was necessary. And of course, at South by Southwest, there’s a counterexample to everything. The Morning Benders, from Berkeley, Calif., drew on easygoing folk-rock and folk-pop as their songs began, sounding smiley and catchy, but then bathed them in guitar noise. Plants and Animals, a band from Montreal, had gnarled, multipart songs that started out tumultuous and built from there, tossing aside simplicity in favor of intensity.

There was also electronic music that went beyond loops and blips. Jj, from Gothenburg, Sweden, arrived as a lone woman seated onstage with her hands in her lap, singing spooky, rhapsodic ballads backed by twinkling electronica. Son Lux, using a laptop, had staticky, ominous sounds as well as danceable ones, to match bleak lyrics. SXSW included some superb quiet zones too. Hauschka, a composer from Düsseldorf, Germany, played Minimalist pieces for string quartet and piano, pensive meditations with a performance-art twist. He was using a prepared piano with paper, tape, beads and other items on the strings, and at one point he dumped in Ping-Pong balls that popped out as he hammered chords. Villagers, a solo songwriter from Ireland, surrounded disillusioned romanticism with billowing acoustic drones. Frightened Rabbit, a Scottish band that brought a saving modesty to the surging anthems of Britpop, may have summed up the hope that brought many musicians to SXSW: enough attention to keep making music. “Oh the loneliness and the scream,” Scott Hutchison sang, “to prove to everyone that I exist.”

Michael Trapp, of Hyannis, Mass., placed second, and Justin Reiter, of Steamboat Springs, took third.

She retired in 2006 but has worked part time at Oregon, overseeing academic support services for student-athletes, among other duties.

Power struggle?

HOUSTON — Scott Drew took on the daunting challenge of rebuilding a tattered program at Baylor nearly seven years ago with what seemed, at least to everyone else, to be an unrealistic vision. At the only private school in the powerful Big 12 and stifled by significant scholarship restrictions in the aftermath of a tragedy and scandal of unprecedented proportions, Drew still envisioned having an elite program. Part of his plan when he arrived was to become “the Duke of the Southwest.” Drew’s hopes certainly don’t seem so far-fetched now. The third-seeded Bears (28-7) are within one victory of the Final Four. To get there, they must beat top-seeded Duke (32-5) in the South Regional final today. “When anyone takes over any program you have to figure out, what is your niche? Where do you fit in in the grand scheme of things? Not try to be like somebody that is not in your niche, but to fully develop your own identity,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “He’s done a really good job of figuring that out at Baylor, and they’re very good. ... They could win the whole thing. They’re that talented.” See Baylor / D4

Everybody knows it’s status quo in the AL East: Yankees and Red Sox, with the Rays hoping they can reprise their run from two years ago. The Central also features the regular figures — Detroit, Minnesota and the Chicago White Sox — fighting for the division. It’s the AL West that has a whole new look. The West is hands down the most changed division in baseball with all kinds of switcheroos for 2010. Seattle reloaded and is trying to contend for its first playoff berth since Ichiro Suzuki’s sensational rookie season of 2001, when the Mariners won an AL-record 116 games. Texas plans to be right in the mix, too. See AL / D6

The only thing the Philadelphia Phillies want from the St. Louis Cardinals is the title of last team to win three straight National League pennants. Albert Pujols? Heck, the Phils are fine with Ryan Howard. Besides, they boosted their chance of the first NL three-peat since the Cardinals in the 1940s by making the big deal, getting Roy Halladay in a trade that sent their playoff ace to Seattle. “I feel like the desire’s more,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “I think that the talent we have on this team, stay healthy, a little luck, we’ll be there again.” The 2010 Cardinals aren’t conceding anything, though. They brought back Big Mac to help the hitters and gave Matt Holliday a huge deal to keep him paired with Pujols. See NL / D6

NHL ROUNDUP

Second-period goals help lead Sharks over Canucks

Beavers’ winning streak snapped at home

The Associated Press

From wire reports CORVALLIS — Rob Folsom went two-for-four with two runs driven in, but the 17thranked Oregon State baseball team lost the second game of a doubleheader to Long Beach State, 8-4, Saturday night at Goss Stadium. LBSU also won the first game, 7-1, giving the club a sweep of Saturday’s doubleheader. With the loss, Oregon State dropped to 16-5 on the season and finished its 11-game homestand with a 9-2 record. Long Beach State, meanwhile, improved to 11-11 on the year. Folsom posted his second multiple-hit effort of the season and sixth multiple-RBI effort. He tripled home a run in the sixth and doubled home a run in the eighth. Adalberto Santos also finished with two hits for the Beavers, who rapped out nine on the night. Long Beach State, however, totaled 15, just the seventh time this season an opponent has out-hit the Beavers. The Beavers’ 10-game win streak was snapped after the first game. In a late game Friday night, a nine-run fifth gave Oregon State a cushion it would not relinquish in a 16-4 win over Long Beach State in the series opener between the teams. The nine runs in the fifth came after a rain delay in the top half of the inning that lasted over an hour. Leading 3-1 at the time of the delay, Oregon State wasted no time in adding to its lead. Rob Folsom drove in two runs with a single up the middle, and then Carter Bell doubled to right center, scoring Folsom.

Ducks fall to Wildcats for second loss in conference

Patrick Semansky / The Associated Press

Portland guard Brandon Roy (7) drives around New Orleans guard Chris Paul during the second half of Saturday’s game in New Orleans. Portland defeated New Orleans 112-101.

Hornets eliminated as Blazers cruise to victory The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — Brandon Roy pulled up for a jumper from 19 feet, was fouled by Marcus Thornton, and the shot still went down. It was only 2 minutes into the game, and Roy sensed he was in for a big night. “From that first shot, he hit my elbow, but it felt good,” Roy said. “I was pump-faking and jabbing and when that midrange is kind of going for me, I’m in a really good groove. Making shots early helps because it gives you confidence.” Roy scored 28 points on 12-of-14 shooting and the Portland Trail Blazers eliminated the New Orleans Hornets from playoff contention with a 112-101 victory Saturday night. Roy hit 11 of his first 12 shots, only two of them layups, and wound up only having to play 32 minutes with game at playoff contender Oklahoma City tonight. Together, Portland’s starting five shot 76.6 percent (36 of 47). LaMarcus Aldridge hit 11 of 16 shots for 24 points, Nicolas Batum was four of five for 13 points, Marcus Camby was five of six for 11 points and Andre Miller was four of six for eight points. “It’s nice to see the ball go in,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “We’ve got guys who can knock down shots. We want to establish the inside. I thought we did that — LaMarcus, Brandon and Andre. I thought we played from the inside out. We knocked down our shots. When our shots are falling, we get aggressive defensively.” The Blazers won for the 10th time in 12 games to strengthen their hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western conference and move within percentage points of idle San Antonio for seventh. “We’re trying to move up,” Roy said. “We’ve got a chance to control our own destiny tomorrow, so we’ve got to go in there and play good basketball.

And that’s been our goal, to try to not look behind us but look at those teams ahead of us.” Darren Collison had 22 points for New Orleans on perfect 10-of-10 shooting from the field and two of two from the foul line. David West added 18 points for the Hornets, who have lost two straight and eight of 10. “We just didn’t have a good enough effort defensively,” West said. “They hit some pretty tough shots (but) we decided tonight, I guess, to not give much resistance.” In other games on Saturday: Jazz . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 103 Wizards. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 87 WASHINGTON — Mehmet Okur had 22 points and 11 rebounds and Utah beat Washington, extending the Wizards’ team-record losing streak to 15 games.

Beaubois made nine of 11 three-pointers, was 15 of 22 overall from the field and made his only free throw.

From wire services TUCSON — University of Oregon right-hander Justin LaTempa kept Arizona’s potent lineup in check for most of the night, but an offensive onslaught in the late innings propelled the Wildcats to an 8-4 victory. Steve Selsky went four for five with a home run and three RBI and Bryce Bandilla (3-1) earned the win on the mound, allowing two runs — one earned — on five hits over 6 1⁄3 innings for an Arizona team that has won 15 straight overall. LaTempa (2-2) went 6 2⁄3 innings, allowing four runs on nine hits. He walked only one and struck out eight. The Wildcats (20-4, 2-0 Pac-10) actually trailed 2-1 going into the last half of the sixth, but scored seven times in their final three at bats. Seth Mejias-Brean was three for four and Joey Rickard, Bobby Brown and Alex Mejia had two hits apiece for the home side. Danny Pulfer led the Ducks (17-8, 0-2) at the plate, going two for four with a pair of doubles. J.J. Altobelli was one for three with two RBIs. The Ducks took their first lead of the series in the second. Eddie Rodriguez led off with a walk, advanced to second on a base hit by Shawn Peterson, and both runners moved up after Paul Eshleman sacrificed. Altobelli promptly brought home Rodriguez with a sacrifice fly for a 1-0 edge. The Ducks took advantage of some sloppy fielding by UA, scoring two in the eighth, but left the bases loaded. Oregon was out-hit 14 to seven, but had ample opportunities to score, leaving 11 runners on base. The Ducks will attempt to salvage a win in the series finale today.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Patrick Marleau had a goal and two assists for the San Jose Sharks, who stretched their winning streak to three games with a 42 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night. Marleau’s 42nd goal gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead with 10:31 left in the second. Joe Pavelski scored two minutes later, and Ryan Clowe added an emptynetter with 11 seconds left to make it 4-2. Dany Heatley also scored for San Jose. The Sharks (46-19-10) have bounced back from a five-game losing streak that dropped them out of first place in the Pacific Division. They moved back atop the division and the Western Conference on Thursday when they beat Dallas. San Jose goalie Evengi Nabokov earned his 40th win of the season. He made 35 saves and has allowed only three goals during the winning streak. Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin, the NHL scoring leader, had two assists to push his point total to 101. The Sharks’ have 102 points, a two-point division lead over Phoenix, and a three-point edge over Chicago in the race for the top seed in the Western playoffs. The Canucks, who are stellar at home, fell to 18-182 on the road. Vancouver didn’t lose any ground in the Northwest Division because Colorado lost to Phoenix. The Canucks have 94 points, five more than Colorado. Vancouver has seven games remaining. Colorado will play eight. Heatley tied the game 1-1 in the second period when he scored a power-play goal with 16:59 left. It was Heatley 39th goal of the season, 18th on the power play. Alexandre Burrows tallied his 34th goal of the season in the first period to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead. Sedin earned his 100th point with an assist.

Vols hope to get where Spartans have been

WOMEN’S NCAA TOURNAMENT ROUNDUP

Tennessee sent packing by Baylor The Associated Press

By Nancy Armour The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — With his hands flashing and fingers pointing, the moderator of the news conference looked like a cross between a referee and an overzealous flight attendant, and Bobby Maze just couldn’t resist. The Tennessee guard started imitating him — subtly, of course, his fingers hidden behind his name card and his face blank. But Wayne Chism caught on eventually and tipped off Scotty Hopson, who burst into giggles. Yes, the Volunteers are well aware fifth-seeded Michigan State is college basketball royalty, such a regular at the regional finals in recent years the Spartans may as well include it in their preseason itinerary. And that sixth-seeded Tennessee is a rookie, making its very first appearance in the round of eight today. But if anyone expects Tennessee (28-8) to be intimidated or feel even the tiniest bit overwhelmed, well, they don’t know the Vols. “Our team likes to be free, our team likes to have fun,” Chism said. “If we’re not doing what we usually do, our team’s not comfortable.” Tennessee has long been a powerhouse — in women’s hoops. On the men’s side? Not so much. When the Vols made the NIT semifinals four years ago, coach Bruce Pearl said the band and the cheerleaders didn’t even make the trip to Madison Square Garden. “We looked like an SEC football school that was trying to play basketball,” Pearl said. “It was embarrassing, and it was something we talked about trying not to (have) happen again.” No worries about that now. Using the relentless defense he learned as a Big Ten assistant, Pearl has turned the Volunteers into one of the Southeastern Conference’s elite. Tennessee’s 28 victories are the second-most in school history, and they include regular-season upsets of Kansas and Kentucky, the two teams that were favored to win the national title coming into the tournament. The Vols advanced to the second week of the tournament for the third time in four years and, by beating second-seeded Ohio State on Friday night, finally got to a regional final. While Pearl acknowledged that his phone has been “blowing up,” he said the tight turnaround hasn’t left Tennessee any time to get caught up in its accomplishments or get sidetracked from its usual road-game routine. “We’re trying not to be any different than we normally are,” he said, drawing a big smile from burly center Brian Williams when he mentioned the team would be going out for barbecue later. “I don’t want them in the hotel room, locked in their rooms thinking about everything. We’ll get them together and go back and watch some more tape on the opponent. “But just keep doing what we’re doing.” It’s that mindset that has made Michigan State (27-8) so successful for so many years. After serving as Jud Heathcote’s longtime assistant, Izzo took over as Michigan State’s coach in 1995. Three seasons later, the Spartans made the Final Four. The next year, Michigan State won its second national title. Though Izzo has had NBA-caliber stars and role players whose basketball careers ended in East Lansing, Mich., his teams have never changed. The Spartans play defense, defense and more defense. If you want the basketball, Izzo once told Durrell Summers, then go get rebounds, on offense and defense. That style of play isn’t exactly pretty, and it often costs the Spartans style points in the polls during the regular season. But come tournament time, it’s teams that play hard-nosed defense that advance. Since making that first Final Four under Izzo in ’99, the Spartans have returned four times. No other team in the country has that kind of track record in that time span. Not Kentucky, not Kansas, not UCLA, not North Carolina. “Final Fours are a big thing in this program,” Draymond Green said. “We know what we have to do, and we know what we need to do, and we know what it takes to get there.”

Butler heading home after beating K-State By Eddie Pells The Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY — It’s an easy five-mile drive from the Butler campus to the site of its next game, in downtown Indianapolis. Still, it’s hard to think of many programs that have taken a longer, more unlikely road to the Final Four. Yes, the boys from Butler did it — defeating Kansas State 63-56 in the West Regional final Saturday to make their trip back home something much bigger than that. The fifth-seeded Bulldogs, the team that plays in the fieldhouse where “Hoosiers” was filmed, are writing their own underdog story, even if they can’t really be called underdogs anymore. Gordon Hayward scored 22 points and Shelvin Mack had 16 to help Butler (32-4) win its 24th straight game and become the first school from a true, midmajor conference to make the Final Four since George Mason

in 2006 — a trip that also ended in Indianapolis. “Couldn’t be more excited,” Hayward said. Trailing almost the entire game, No. 2 Kansas State (29-7) rallied to tie it at 54 with 3:09 remaining. But Butler didn’t fold, it only got better. The Bulldogs scored the next nine points to seal the game before K-State guard Jacob Pullen’s shot at the buzzer dropped — but offered no consolation. Enrollment at Butler is in the 4,500 range, about 15 of whom have reminded everyone why college basketball captures America’s heart this time every year. They are weaving a story about the overlooked and under-appreciated getting their time in the limelight, the kind of tale every underdog, from Charlie Brown to Gene Hackman, has to love. But make no mistake — this is not some scrappy, overmatched

team that needed a break, no Danny and the Miracles, or Villanova shooting 79 percent to knock off mighty Georgetown. This is a team that stood toe-totoe with Syracuse on one night, then Kansas State two nights later, shutting down two power teams from power conferences with legitimate stars of their own. Pullen and teammate Denis Clemente didn’t score a point for Kansas State until 15 seconds were left in the first half, and it was no matter of luck. Rather, it was the tough, in-your-face defense of Ronald Nored and Willie Veasley that did it — smothering a pair of players who had combined for 53 points two nights earlier in a double-overtime win against Xavier. Clemente finished with 18 and Pullen 14, but they shot a combined 11 for 30. “We just tried to guard them,” Hayward said. “That’s what we’ve done all year. I think we did a good job.”

West Virginia reaches Final Four By Dan Gelston The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Country road, take me home. Or better yet, Indianapolis. It’s almost heaven, West Virginia. Da’Sean Butler and the Mountaineers are off to the Final Four for the first time since 1959. Joe Mazzulla scored a careerhigh 17 points in his first start this season and West Virginia handled a cold-shooting Kentucky team stocked with future NBA players almost from the opening tip for a 73-66 victory in the East Regional final Saturday night.

Baylor Continued from D1 This won’t be the only BaylorDuke matchup with a Final Four berth on the line. On the women’s side, Baylor and Duke are also playing in a regional final, marking the first time that two schools have met in the round of eight in both tournaments during the same season, according to STATS LLC. The similarities between Baylor and Duke are obvious in that both are small private schools known for their academic excellence. But there has never been any comparing their success in men’s basketball. The Blue Devils are going for their 11th Final Four appearance under Coach K, though their first since 2004. They have lost only once when reaching a regional final. Baylor has been to the Final Four only twice, in 1948 and 1950 — back when the field had only eight teams. Even before the tragic summer of 2003, when a player was murdered by a teammate and the scandalous aftermath led to significant penalties and former coach Dave Bliss’ resignation, Baylor had played in only one NCAA tournament game (1988) since its last Final Four appearance. “The first thing with that comes consistency,” Drew said

“It’s something we’ve been preaching,” Butler said. “Not even just two more. Ever since we won our first game. Five more, four more, three more. It doesn’t mean anything unless you win the whole thing.” Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins, back with his alma mater, is in the Final Four for the first time since taking Cincinnati in 1992. It’s an even longer stretch for West Virginia — Jerry West was the star of the team 51 years ago, and not yet a Hall of Famer or NBA logo. “The first day I was here, I told them I came back to win a national championship,” Hug-

gins said. “I came back to win it for the university, having played there, and for the great people of our state.” For freshman sensation John Wall and the young Wildcats (35-3), a scintillating season ended with a clang. They were awful from threepoint range, missing their first 20 attempts and finishing a stunning four of 32 (12.5 percent). DeAndre Liggins finally hit a three with 3:29 left to end the drought, but by then it was too late. West Virginia went the other way, making eight threes in the first half without a two-point basket.

about his vision. “Our third straight 20-win season, our third straight postseason, last year having postseason success ... those are all building blocks and things that have put us in motion to becoming one of those talked-about programs and one of those programs people consider one of the top in the nation.” Baylor has already set a school record for victories this year with its third consecutive 20-win season — the Bears won more than 20 games only three times in the 101 seasons before that. Before making it to the NIT championship game last season, they were in the NCAA field in 2008 and lost in the first round to Purdue, the team the Blue Devils defeated Friday night. After beating three doubledigit seeds to get this far — Sam Houston State, Old Dominion and then surprising Saint Mary’s in a 72-49 romp Friday night — Baylor faces its toughest challenge to keep playing. But the Bears don’t seem fazed. “We’re never intimidated by anybody no matter who we play,” said Tweety Carter, Baylor’s senior point guard. Seeing “Duke” across the jersey of the opposing players isn’t awing the Bears, who tied for second in the Big 12 after being picked 10th in a preseason poll by the conference coaches. The league sent seven teams to the NCAA tournament and ranked

as the nation’s toughest this season. “The Big 12 has gotten us ready for this stage,” post player Ekpe Udoh said. “We’re ready for this challenge.” While Krzyzewski is used to these kind of games, this is the first time any of his current players have been this close to the Final Four. The Blue Devils are past the round of 16 for the first time since their last Final Four six years ago, and their last national championship was in 2001. “It really is the first time for our players, too. ... I don’t want them to be in my past moments,” Krzyzewski said. “I don’t know what advantage we have. I think we’re both two teams that are trying to accomplish something that these groups have not accomplished before. Forget about the past.” Baylor has a zone defense that held sharp-shooting Saint Mary’s to 35 percent shooting — and only six of 22 on threepointers. With a 7-footer and a pair of 6-10 players to crowd the middle, the Bears provide a drastically different look than Purdue’s man-to-man defense, meaning the Blue Devils have to adjust quickly. “I don’t know all the answers. I think we need to figure it out today,” Duke guard Jon Scheyer said. “But I think their length has a lot to do with it, and the way they play their zone. They do a really good job.”

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Freshman sensation Brittney Griner has grown up a lot this season — just ask Tennessee. Griner scored 27 points and blocked 10 shots, leading fourth-seeded Baylor to a 77-62 win over the top-seeded Lady Vols on Saturday to advance to the NCAA tournament regional finals. “She was the X factor,” said Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, whose team was taken out in the first round last season. Baylor’s only other appearance in the round of eight was in 2005, the same year it won the national championship. The Lady Bears (26-9) will face No. 2 seed Duke on Monday night. The Lady Vols’ loss spoiled the highly anticipated matchup between Tennessee and Connecticut, which could have happened in this year’s national semifinals. The Lady Vols, who lost in the first round last season, haven’t missed out on back-to-back Final Fours since 1993-94. Tennessee (32-3) successfully limited the 6-foot-8 Griner in its 74-65 win over Baylor in the first game of the season but couldn’t do it again even with as many as four players on her at a time. Griner hit several shots while double-teamed or passed to an open Lady Bears teammate for an easy layup. “You’re watching a phenom out here play above the rim,” Mulkey said. “That’s what needs to be written in every article from this day forward, because she’s such a sweet child as you can see.” Griner had been somewhat tentative on offense since she was suspended for two games after throwing a punch against a Texas Tech player in early March. She was back to her dominant self on both ends of the court. “I just knew I had to come out and play my game and go back to the old Brittney,” Griner said. Griner’s 26 blocks in the NCAA tournament ranks her second in history. Duke’s Alison Bales holds the NCAA tournament record with 30 in 2006, and Connecticut’s Rebecca Lobo’s 22 now ranks third. The teams went back and forth throughout the first half and early in the second, trading the lead 10 times and tying four times. With both 6-foot-6 Kelley Cain and 6-foot-3 Alyssia Brewer on the floor to guard Griner, Tennessee found some success inside and was up 55-50 with just under eight minutes left. The Lady Vol orange-clad crowd fell silent as Griner hit back-to-back layups and had a three-point play as part of a 211 run as Tennessee’s defense unraveled. Tennessee (32-3) turned to its shooters in desperation. Though Angie Bjorklund and

Shekinna Stricklen managed to hit jumpers in traffic and knock down a few threes in the first half, they missed left and right in the second half. The Lady Vols managed to hit only 32.9 percent, only slightly better than their season-worst 32.8 percent against Stanford, and finished with 22 paint points.

Boys tennis team-by-team preview

Outlaws win two games at own softball tourney Bulletin staff report SISTERS — Sisters continued to dominate the competition during the second day of the Sisters Tournament, adding softball victories against Taft and La Pine to improve its overall record to 7-2. Sisters shut out the Tigers 11-0 in a five-inning game in which Outlaws pitcher Dara Kosanke had 13 strikeouts and added three runs and three hits for the offense. Also for Sisters, Taylor Walker belted a triple, while several players tallied two RBIs. In a 15-5 win against La Pine, Sisters scored its runs on just six hits (taking 12 walks and four hit batters) to win in seven innings. The Hawks fought back in the fifth, scoring all five of their runs with two outs in the inning. Kaylin Elms had three hits

and Casey Wright added a double for the La Pine offense. For Sisters, Brooklyn Walker had four RBIs, while both Walker and Kosanke registered two RBIs.

GOLF ROUNDUP

Pavin jumps to lead after shooting 63 The Associated Press CAP CANA, Dominican Republic — Looking to put together three impressive rounds for the first time on the Champions Tour, Corey Pavin took a step in that direction Saturday, shooting a course-record 63 to take the lead after two rounds at the Cap Cana Championship. Pavin had nine birdies in his bogey-free round and is at 13under 131 at the Punta Espada Golf Club. He broke Bernhard Langer’s 2009 record of 64 to take a one-shot lead over Nick Price (66) and a two-shot margin over former Masters champions Fred Couples (66) and Larry Mize (66). Russ Cochran was fifth at 9 under after a 67 and Langer’s sparkling 65 left him tied with Tom Pernice Jr. (68) at 8 under. Olin Browne (70) and David Peoples (70) were tied for eighth at 6 under, and Tommy Armour III (67) and Bob Tway (70) rounded out the top-10. With virtually no wind for the second straight day, 40 players were under par after 36 holes. That left Pavin, in his first season among the over-50 crowd, to light up the scoreboard, jumping from a tie for seventh when the day began to the top. “Without the wind, you can shoot a good score,” he said of his lowest competitive score since a 61 in the first round of the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee, also his last win. “I made only two putts of any length at all.” In other tournaments Saturday: South African on top in Spain MALAGA, Spain — South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen shot a 4-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead over England’s Robert Coles in the Andalucia Open. Oosthuizen, chasing his first European tour victory and second straight trip to the Masters, had a 14-under 196 total. Coles shot a 63. Seo extends lead at Kia Classic CARLSBAD, Calif. — Hee Kyung Seo shot a 3-under 69 Saturday to widen her lead to five strokes after three rounds of the inaugural Kia Classic. Taiwan’s Candie Kung was second. Michelle Wie, who is trying to win her second LPGA event, shot a 1-over 73 and is tied with China’s Shanshan Feng for third place, six strokes back. Feng shot a 68, tied for best round of the day with Cristie Kerr and Sweden’s Anna Nordqvist.

Ernie Els hits a shot from a sand trap on the 18th hole during the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla., Saturday.

Els heads to final round with a one-stroke lead By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — Ernie Els is trying to keep his head clear and his game simple. It seems to be working. Els finished with two tough pars Saturday at Bay Hill, enough to go from a two-shot deficit to a one-shot lead over Ben Curtis going into the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and a chance for Els to win his second straight tournament. “There’s a lot of work left,” Els said after a 3-under 69, making him the only player to break 70 all three days at Bay Hill. “Obviously, I’m still in a very good position. I would have taken it before the tournament started. I would like to keep working and just try and concentrate on playing good golf tomorrow.” He’s playing golf as well as anyone at the moment. Saturday was the fifth time in the last six rounds Els has been atop the leaderboard, dating to his victory at Doral two weeks ago that ended the longest drought — two years without winning — of his career. The Big Easy is starting to make golf look that way. He was at 10-under 206, giving himself a chance to win back-to-back on the PGA Tour for the first time in seven years, and to become the first

PGA TOUR player since Tiger Woods in 2001 to win twice in the Florida swing. Curtis looked just as good on a blustery day at Bay Hill. He just didn’t finish. The former British Open champion had a two-shot lead until he chopped up the par-5 16th hole from 60 yards short of the green. He bladed a wedge some 70 feet long and three-putted for bogey on the easiest hole at Bay Hill. Then, he went long on the par-3 17th and chipped off the green for another bogey. Curtis had to make a 6-foot par putt on the 18th to keep it together with a 70, leaving him one shot behind. “That last putt on 18 was big,” Curtis said. “You always want momentum going forward.” They will be in the final group today with Chris Couch, who was headed for a double bogey until a break he felt was long overdue. His approach to the 18th ricocheted along the rocks framing the green, and the third bounce sent the ball onto the green. Two putts later, Couch had a par and a 69 and was at 7-under 209. “I kept thinking, ‘Please, please, bounce on the green, baby, bounce on the green,’ ”

Couch said. “I’ve never considered myself a very lucky person on the golf course. But that was a great break at the right time.” The final round will be threesomes and start early to avoid thunderstorms in the forecast for today. Phil Mickelson was nowhere near the lead. Right when he was starting to build momentum with his putter, Mickelson made only two putts longer than 5 feet and staggered to a 75, leaving him seven shots out of the lead. “I had a rough round today in that the ball just didn’t seem to want to go in the hole,” Mickelson said. The best round — and the best move — belonged to Jim Furyk, coming off a victory last week at Innisbrook. He made the cut on the number, then shot a 66 in the morning when the greens were still relatively soft. He started the day in a tie for 59th. When the third round ended, Furyk was in a tie for sixth, five shots behind. “I think it was pretty calm and smooth sailing early,” Furyk said. “But once I got it to 5 or 6 under, things tightened up a little bit more and I got a little more serious.” Edoardo Molinari, who played with Mickelson, shot a 70 and was at 6-under 210 along with Kevin Na.

A look at the teams from Central Oregon that are competing this spring:

CLASS 6A REDMOND PANTHERS Head coach: Jim Ferguson (third season) 2009 finish: Tied for fourth at Central Valley Conference district tournament Top players: Marcus James, Carlo Gangan CVC championships: May 12-14, at Salem

CLASS 5A BEND LAVA BEARS Head coach: Grant Ludwick (third season) 2009 finish: Third at Intermountain Conference district tournament Returning state qualifier: Jeff Windsor IMC championships: May 10-11, at Pendleton MOUNTAIN VIEW COUGARS Head coach: Alex Bick (fourth season) 2009 record: Second at IMC district tournament Top players: Matt Larraneta, Kevin Kyger IMC championships: May 10-11, at Pendleton SUMMIT STORM Head coach: Josh Cordell (ninth season) 2009 record: First at IMC district tournament; first at Class 5A state tournament

Tennis Continued from D1 Fellow juniors Ian Eland and Sterling Dillingham could take over at the No. 1 doubles spot, according to Cordell, if Deuel plays singles. Churchill of Eugene and Cleveland of Portland — three-time state singles champion Alex Rovello leads the Cleveland squad — are expected to be the Storm’s biggest hurdles in repeating as 5A state champs, Cordell says. Now in his ninth season as Summit’s head coach, Cordell notes that on the whole, the IMC is down this year after many of last season’s standout players graduated. However, he expects Bend High to be a major player in this year’s IMC race. Windsor is in a position to help boost the Lava Bears into one of the IMC’s top three spots this season. And with an older and more experienced team backing up the returning state qualifier, Bend might well improve on its thirdplace finish at the 2009 district tournament. Matt Sterling, Aiden Contreras and Kyle Pickard will all be crucial to the Lava Bears’ success, according to Bend coach Kevin Collier. Mountain View coach Alex Bick said the IMC could be fairly wide open this season with so much talent gone. Sophomore Matt Larraneta will take over as the Cougars’ No. 1 singles player, and senior Kevin Kyger will make up half of Mountain View’s No. 1 doubles team. In Prineville, Crook County is struggling to field a full squad, but that does not mean the players they have on the court will not be competitive says Cow-

Returning state qualifiers: Paxton Deuel, Conor Hegewald IMC championships: May 10-11, at Pendleton CROOK COUNTY COWGIRLS Head coach: Dan Brown (second season) 2009 record: Sixth at IMC district tournament Top players: Trevor Brown, Zac Thompson IMC championships: May 10-11, at Pendleton MADRAS WHITE BUFFALOES Head coach: Margaret Kinkaid (fourth season) 2009 record: Eighth at IMC district tournament Top players: Joe Garcia, Kesh Phillips IMC championships: May 10-11, at Pendleton

CLASS 4A SISTERS OUTLAWS Head coach: Garth Tosello (first season) 2009 record: Third at the Class 4A-3A-2A-1A Special District 3 tournament Top players: Colby Gilmore, Ben Fullhart Class 4A-3A-2A-1A Special District 3 championships: May 10-11, at TBD

boys coach Dan Brown, who expects his son, Trevor, to be a good match for Windsor in IMC singles play. Senior Zach Thompson, who finished fifth in doubles competition at last season’s district meet, will likely partner with sophomore Brady Slater to fill Crook County’s No. 1 doubles position. At the Class 6A level, Redmond’s Marcus James and Carlo Gangan head up this year’s young but more developed team. In 2009, the Panthers tied with West Salem for fourth place in the Central Valley Conference. Redmond coach Jim Ferguson reports this year’s squad has its sights set on finishing in the top three in the CVC. In Class 4A-3A-2A-1A competition, Sisters first-year coach Garth Tosello will have an experienced No. 1 singles player in Ben Fullhart. Last season, Fullhart teamed with his nowgraduated brother Sam to win the consolation doubles bracket at the 4A-3A-2A-1A state tournament. The Outlaws return another strong doubles player in Colby Gilmore. James Williams can be reached at jwilliams@bendbulletin.com.

D6 Sunday, March 28, 2010 • THE BULLETIN

AL Continued from D1 “I think that the AL West is going to beat up on itself,” Rangers team president Nolan Ryan said. Speedster Chone Figgins left the three-time champion Los Angeles Angels for Seattle. Slugger Vladimir Guerrero departed the Angels for Texas. The Oakland Athletics took a big risk and signed $10 million ace Ben Sheets after he didn’t pitch last year, plus they added Coco Crisp in center field. The A’s also have two-time All-Star Justin Duchscherer, who didn’t pitch in ’09. World Series MVP Hideki Matsui has brought a Japanese following, and the large media contingent that comes with it, to the Angels. Teammate Torii Hunter calls Matsui “one of the quietest clutch hitters in the game.” “The West always has been the division nobody pays attention to because they are in the West,” said White Sox infielder Omar Vizquel, who played last season for Texas and began his career in Seattle 21 years ago. “But I think this year they are going to have a little bit more hype because of all the changes that have been happening. It’s going to be fun to see different teams like Texas and the Angels with new players. But I think it’s still going to be the same: The Angels are still the team beat.” Many agree with that assessment. “We all know about the Angels. They have the crown and we have to take it,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. In the Central, the Twins have lots to celebrate before opening day even arrives. They just locked up star catcher Joe Mauer on a $184 million, eight-year contract, perfect timing as the team christens its new open-air ballpark. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon was thrilled to see Mauer stay put in the Central with the Twins and not join the mighty Yankees or Red Sox. “We cannot afford that. For us and Toronto and Baltimore, we really appreciate that,” he said. New York won 103 games last season on the way to its first World Series title since 2000 — and the wild-card Red Sox had the AL’s thirdmost victories at 95, behind the Angels’ 97. The big-spending Yankees would like noth-

NL Continued from D1 The Phillies and Cardinals are the class of the league, for sure. But if the Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies have their way, neither of those teams will be heading to the World Series come October. “It’s not good enough to win the division or get to the playoffs. It’s not going to be good enough this year,” Rockies backup first baseman Jason Giambi said, “it’s

ing more than to repeat. “We know that it’s probably the best division in baseball,” said ace CC Sabathia, beginning his second season in the Bronx. “We’ve got our work cut out for us but we’ve got the guys in here that can get the job done.” The Angels feel the same way and hope they can get back to the World Series after winning it all as a wild-card team in 2002. They did lose ace John Lackey, who’s now with the Red Sox. By now, Angels manager Mike Scioscia is accustomed to being the target everybody’s chasing. So he’s not surprised by the moves of the other AL West organizations. “You assume everybody’s going to play hard and try to beat you, whoever you’re playing,” he said. “I don’t look at it as anything but teams trying to improve to get to their ultimate goal, just as we have. Our focus has always been inhouse and will continue to be in-house, whether we’re playing the 1927 Yankees or we’re playing the 1962 Mets.” The Angels don’t ever expect it to be easy. They should get quite a push from the Mariners and Rangers. “All the upgrades with Seattle taking Chone Figgins away from me, we’ve got Milton Bradley over there, we’ve got Griffey, we’ve got Ichiro, they look really good,” Hunter said. “That’s something we can’t focus on. Texas, they always have a pretty good team. At the same time, we won the division last year. Don’t forget that. We still hold the crown and we still play the game the right way. The way Scioscia teaches us the game, it puts us in a great position to win. We’re still the team to beat. But I do see the upgrades. I’m not stupid.” Mariners fans will have to wait to get their first look at new ace Cliff Lee in a Seattle uniform. Not only has he been nursing several nagging injuries — such as a strained abdominal muscle — and recovering from foot surgery that could land him on the disabled list to start the year, the 2008 AL Cy Young Award winner has been suspended for the first five games. He was penalized for throwing over the head of Arizona’s Chris Snyder in a spring training game. No matter who it is, contender or not, a fast start in April is always the hope. “2009 is over and everyone is chasing everyone else,” Orioles manager Dave Trembley said.

going to be to go to the World Series.” Until the races heat up, though, all eyes in the NL will be fixed on the next wave of budding superstars. The Braves have 20-yearold Jason Heyward and the talk of his prodigious homers. Sometime this season the Cincinnati Reds will call upon Cuban lefthander Aroldis Chapman, whom they gave $30 million to unleash his 100 mph fastball. And in Washington, the one thing that might rival the midterm elections in anticipation is the ar-

American League, at a glance A look at the AL in predicted order of finish:

EAST

CENTRAL

WEST

New York Yankees: Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Mark Teixeira, Mariano Rivera, Nick Swisher — the heart of this defending champion team is still intact, even if Hideki Matsui is now out West with the Angels and Johnny Damon is in Detroit.The Yankees have kept their payroll around the same, too — in the $200 million range — and added the speedy Curtis Granderson to the mix. Boston Red Sox: After earning the wild card last season, the Red Sox had a disappointing division series in which they were swept by the Angels. Yet Boston reloaded and added one of the most coveted pitchers on the market in righthander John Lackey. A couple of other big names are also in Beantown: third baseman Adrian Beltre and center fielder Mike Cameron. Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays are determined to get back to the playoffs after missing last season, a year after their improbable World Series run. Tampa Bay acquired right-hander Rafael Soriano to be its closer, and that could go a long way to bolstering the bullpen — one of Manager Joe Maddon’s main goals during the winter. Toronto Blue Jays: This is a rebuilding year for the Blue Jays and everyone is curious how they will do without former ace Roy Halladay. He went to the Phillies following December’s big four-team, nine-player swap that also sent Cliff Lee to Seattle. Toronto also will miss Marco Scutaro in the infield. On to Boston, Scutaro had a career year in which he hit .282 with 12 homers, 100 runs, 162 hits, 35 doubles and 90 walks in 144 games. Baltimore Orioles: Manager Dave Trembley believes his younger players now have more experience and the club has made some key acquisitions to help boost the starting rotation — namely Kevin Millwood — bullpen and offense. Miguel Tejada is back with Baltimore, this time at third base instead of shortstop.

Minnesota Twins: It’s been a spring of highs and lows for Minnesota. The Twins were devastated to learn All-Star closer Joe Nathan needs reconstructive elbow surgery that will cost him the entire season. Manager Ron Gardenhire will look to other options, but it won’t be easy to fill the shoes of the reliable Nathan with the game on the line in the ninth inning. Minnesota is counting on Mauer and Co. to keep the Twins on top as they move into Target Field and leave the old Metrodome behind. Chicago White Sox Perhaps the biggest question for the White Sox is where will they get their power after losing Jermaine Dye and Jim Thome? Expect skipper Ozzie Guillen to regularly give his guys the green light to push games with speed and hit-and-runs. “That’s going to be something to watch,” infielder Omar Vizquel said. Detroit Tigers: The Tigers need another big year from Justin Verlander, who led the majors in strikeouts last season with 269 and went 19-9. Same goes for new closer Jose Valverde. Manager Jim Leyland will be thrilled if flame-throwing reliever Joel Zumaya returns to the dominant form he showed in 2006, the team’s AL championship season. Cleveland Indians: First-year skipper Manny Acta moves to the AL after being fired as manager of the Washington Nationals. The Indians were relatively quiet during the offseason. Contending is probably going to be tough for a club moving forward without Cliff Lee, Victor Martinez, Mark DeRosa, and Carl Pavano to name just a few of the departed. Kansas City Royals: The Royals led the Central early last season thanks to strong starting pitching and a reliable bullpen. Back to lead the way is 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner Zack Greinke, but the rotation is thin behind him.

Seattle Mariners: Beloved slugger Ken Griffey Jr. is back for a 22nd major league season and his second since rejoining his first major league club. The Mariners are counting on his production at designated hitter even if he is now 40 and not the same guy he was in leading the team to the playoffs in a magical ’95 run. Second-year skipper Don Wakamatsu will count on Griffey to mentor volatile outfielder Milton Bradley. The Mariners also have questions about a pair of key pitchers, Cliff Lee and Erik Bedard, who is recovering from August shoulder surgery. Los Angeles Angels: The Angels have the pieces — despite a handful of new faces — in place to win their fourth straight division crown and sixth in seven years. Aside from Hideki Matsui, Los Angeles added Joel Pineiro — a 15-game winner last season for St. Louis — to its rotation after losing John Lackey. Texas Rangers: Perhaps the biggest thing the Rangers will have to deal with in April is any fallout or potential distraction in the wake of fourth-year manager Ron Washington’s admission he failed a drug test last season after using cocaine. On the field, right-hander Rich Harden hopes to put his injury woes in the past and finally be a reliable No. 1 starter in his first year with the Rangers. Texas went 87-75 for second place in the West and it’s unclear if the Rangers have the talent to dethrone Los Angeles. Oakland Athletics: The A’s know they will have to start well to stay in the division mix — none of this coming-from-behind stuff they were often known for earlier in the decade. Look for Oakland to take more chances on the basepaths with lightning-quick Rajai Davis and Coco Crisp at the top of the order. Like Ben Sheets, fellow pitcher Justin Duchscherer is ready for a fresh start after missing all of last season following elbow surgery and a bout with clinical depression.

rival of Stephen Strasburg and his astounding array of polished pitches. The Phillies again ran away with the NL East, but failed to defend their World Series title. So they traded late-season acquisition Cliff Lee, so brilliant in the playoffs, for Toronto’s Halladay, perhaps the best pitcher in baseball. Philadelphia also added Placido Polanco at third base and upgraded its bench. But getting out of a division that’s improved from top to bottom will be a tougher task.

The New York Mets signed slugger Jason Bay to help an anemic offense — but can they stay healthy? The Florida Marlins finally pushed their payroll over $40 million to keep the core of young talent together and the Braves made a host of moves, including bringing in a healthy Troy Glaus and closer Billy Wagner, who is 15 saves shy of 400. “You always feel good about the potential of teams. It’s a matter of if we live up to the potential,” Atlanta’s Chipper Jones said. “I think we’re riding under

the radar and biding our time. Hopefully everybody will be talking about us come August and September.” In the NL Central, new hitting coach Mark McGwire and the Cardinals will face a stiff challenge from the Cubs, who had won two straight division titles before the divisive Milton Bradley came to Wrigley. He’s gone now, Alfonso Soriano says he’s pain-free and 2008 Rookie of the Year Geovany Soto came to camp 40 pounds lighter and is hopeful — a perennial spring sen-

timent for all of Chicago, more than 100 years without a title. “We’ve got great talent here. We’ve got all the pieces,” Soto said. “We’ve just got to put it together and stay healthy, I think.” The NL West is a three-team race. The Rockies, who surged to the wild card once Jim Tracy took over after an 18-28 start, and the Giants, behind the gifted arms of two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain, are prepared to unseat the Los Angeles Dodgers and Manny Ramirez.

National League, at a glance A look at the NL in predicted order of finish:

EAST

CENTRAL

WEST

Philadelphia Phillies: Not satisfied with a return to the World Series that ended in a six-game loss to the Yankees, the Phillies added Roy Halladay to top their rotation. They also beefed up an already formidable lineup with Placido Polanco, and upgraded the bench with catcher Brian Schneider, infielder Juan Castro and outfielder Ross Gload. But Philadelphia’s chances at another title might depend on setup man J.C. Romero, closer Brad Lidge and Cole Hamels. Romero had offseason forearm surgery and is expected to start the year on the DL. Lidge went from a perfect ’08 to leading the majors with 11 blown saves last year. Hamels followed up his World Series MVP with frustrating inconsistency. Atlanta Braves: If Bobby Cox is going to return to the playoffs in his last season as manager of the Braves, it in part could be thanks to the 20year-old right fielder Jason Heyward, whose power displays this spring have elicited Bunyanesque tales. Troy Glaus and Chipper Jones will be counted on to rediscover their home run strokes and help the Braves improve on their 149 homers, 22nd overall. New York Mets: Health is the key if the Mets are going to bounce back from the disastrous 70-92 finish in 2009, and they already are off to a poor start. Center fielder Carlos Beltran is expected to be out for April after having knee surgery in January and shortstop Jose Reyes had an overactive thyroid that kept him out of most of spring training. After Johan Santana, the Mets rotation is shaky. John Maine and Oliver Perez are coming off injuries. Florida Marlins: With a talented core of young players led by NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez, Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan and All-Star righty Josh Johnson, Florida won 87 games last year and finished six back of the Phillies. The Marlins pushed their payroll above $40 million for the first time since 2005 to keep the team together. Washington Nationals: The fact the Nationals finished their second straight 100-loss season (59-103) is no reason for optimism in D.C. Pitcher Stephen Strasburg, however, is. Signing their No. 1 pick for a record $15.1 million last August showed the Nationals are determined to win, and Strasburg displayed flashes of his potential as an ace this spring, but he’ll start the season in Double-A.

St. Louis Cardinals: With a starting rotation anchored by dual aces Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter, and an offense led by the combo of Albert Pujols and Matt Holliday, the Cardinals should repeat as Central champs. They just hope hitting coach Mark McGwire’s return to St. Louis is not a distraction when the team hits the road. David Freese will have to put aside his drunken-driving arrest in December as he takes over at third base for the departed Mark DeRosa. Pitching coach Dave Duncan will try to work the same magic to resurrect Brad Penny’s career as he did with Joel Pineiro last season. Chicago Cubs: The biggest move the Cubs made this offseason was trading away the volatile Milton Bradley after one combustible season. Manager Lou Piniella enters the final year of his contract with several potential hindrances to ending the Cubs’ World Series title drought, which dates to 1908. The health of Alfonso Soriano and Ted Lilly are big questions. Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers found out that Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder can only carry the club so far, so Milwaukee went out and signed Randy Wolf to a $29.75 million, three-year deal and brought back Doug Davis. The Brewers reunited manager Ken Macha with fellow former Oakland Athletics coach Rick Peterson to guide Milwaukee’s pitching staff after its starters had a majors-worst 5.37 ERA. Cincinnati Reds: Only six teams in the majors scored fewer runs than the Reds did (673) last year, their ninth straight losing season, but they added only one new starter: Orlando Cabrera. Cincinnati needs to stay healthy, primarily right fielder Jay Bruce, who missed two months with a broken wrist and hit .223. Houston Astros: New manager Brad Mills inherits a sagging ballclub that made few moves in the offseason. On offense, the Astros lost shortstop Miguel Tejada — rookie Tommy Manzella takes over — from a lineup that produced just 643 runs, 14th in the NL. The key to a run-scoring resurgence is Lance Berkman, who struggled to hit 25 homers and drive in 80 runs. Pittsburgh Pirates: The ballclub without a winning season since Barry Bonds’ year last with the team in 1992 is building for the future. A bevy of trades over the last 2½ seasons stocked the minors, and several of those players might be ready — by this summer.

Colorado Rockies: Expectations are high after Jim Tracy took over for Clint Hurdle as manager after a slow start and led the team to the NL wild card. They could win the West if left-hander Jeff Francis returns to form after missing all of 2008, and if closer Huston Street and setup man Rafael Betancourt are healthy. The relievers have missed time this spring and neither will likely be ready for the start of the season. Troy Tulowitzki leads a potent offense that was second in the NL for runs scored (804) and home runs (190). Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers could be as interesting off the field as they are on it. Owners Frank McCourt and his estranged wife, Jamie, are set to meet in court in May. Manager Joe Torre is in the final year of his contract. And Manny Ramirez, also in his final year, has already made a stir this spring, saying this would be his last season in Los Angeles and then backtracking a day later. On the upside, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and James Loney provide a dynamic young core. San Francisco Giants: It’s a good thing Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain don’t need much run support — they can’t expect it from the Giants’ offense. New arrivals Mark DeRosa and Aubrey Huff should add some pop to a lineup that hit 122 homers, 15th in the NL. San Francisco still is lacking another big bat to support third baseman Pablo Sandoval. There could be help on the way, though. Rookie catcher Buster Posey might get the call early despite the re-signing of Bengie Molina. Arizona Diamondbacks: Much depends on the return of 2006 Cy Young Award winner Brandon Webb from shoulder surgery and he might be ready by mid-April. After Dan Haren and newly arrived Edwin Jackson, there are two untested youngsters, Ian Kennedy and Rodrigo Lopez. If Conor Jackson is healthy, Stephen Drew improves and first baseman Adam LaRoche hits for power, the Diamondbacks’ offense should help compensate for shaky starters and a weak bullpen. San Diego Padres: There is optimism in San Diego after the Padres went 37-25 to finish the season in fourth place. But a sunny outlook might not be enough to keep All-Star slugger Adrian Gonzalez, who could be dealt before the trading deadline. He has a year, plus a club option for 2011 left on his contract, and new general manager Jed Hoyer has limited funds.

Rep. John Dingell’s health-care moment

N

o one waited longer for the passage of health-care reform than John Dingell, so it was only right that no one smiled more broadly than the 83-year-old congressman while seated at the president’s side for the bill-signing ceremony in the White House’s East Room. It was 1955 when Dingell succeeded his late father in a special election from Downriver Detroit and took up the family business of working for health care to be guaranteed for every family regardless of income. “I’ve been keeping after it for 55 years,” the dean of the House told me when I reached him by phone at his Capitol Hill office late Tuesday afternoon. After watching the celebration on TV, I felt I had to talk to Dingell to make the day complete. My mind flashed back — not 55 years, but 16 — when another president, Bill Clinton, backed by another Democratic Congress, set out to pass a bill that would cover the medically uninsured in this prosperous nation. Dingell was chairman of one of the key House committees handling that bill, Energy and Commerce, and for all his formidable reputation as a masterful legislator, it damn near killed him that he couldn’t cajole his committee into sending the measure to the House floor. The Democratic side of the committee was divided in its approach to the bill, and by the time Dingell snatched it from the subcommittee wrestling with it, the tide of opinion had turned against the Democrats. That November, they lost control of Congress and Dingell lost his chairmanship. “This time,” Dingell said, “we had tremendous support, not just the unions and the AARP but the AMA and the nurses. The Republicans overplayed their hands, and it all came together. The system and the institution worked.” Obama, whose steadfastness was tested and proved worthy in this battle even more than in his climb to the presidency, saluted Dingell and all those from Teddy Roosevelt to Ted Kennedy who had struggled for this cause. It showed, he said, that “our presence here today is remarkable and improbable. “With all the punditry, all of the lobbying, all of the game-playing that passes for governing in Washington, it’s been easy at times to doubt our ability to do such a big thing, such a complicated thing; to wonder if there are limits to what we, as a people, can still achieve,” he said. “But today, we are affirming that essential truth — a truth every generation is called to rediscover for itself — that we are not a nation that scales back its aspirations. We are not a nation that falls prey to doubt or mistrust. We don’t fall prey to fear. We are not a nation that does what’s easy. That’s not who we are. That’s not how we got here. “We are a nation that faces its challenges and accepts its responsibilities. We are a nation that does what is hard. What is necessary. What is right.” In coming weeks and months, we will all have occasion to be reminded that we are hardly pioneering. We are belatedly catching up to what every other advanced industrial society has long guaranteed its people. Dingell reminded me that when Medicare was passed in 1965, he thought insurance would quickly follow for the rest of the population. Next year, if not before, Congress will surely have to amend the new law to deal with some of the flaws its critics have noted. In fact, lawmakers will be dealing with health care every time they meet for the foreseeable future. Inevitably, the cost of the guarantees embodied in this bill will confront a future Congress with hard choices these legislators finessed. And yet, as John Dingell can testify better than anyone, it is worth celebrating, as Obama did, the achievement of a nation that did what is hard, and necessary, and right. David Broder is a columnist for The Washington Post.

LEAVING

Reaganomics BEHIND In signing health care reform, Obama hopes to correct years of economic inequality

By David Leonhardt New York Times News Service

For all the political and economic uncertainties about health reform, at least one thing seems clear: The bill that President Barack Obama signed Tuesday is the federal government’s biggest attack on economic inequality since C O M M E inequality began rising more than three decades ago. Over most of that period, government policy and market forces have been moving in the same direction, both increasing inequality. The pretax incomes of the wealthy have soared since the late 1970s, while their tax rates have fallen more than rates for the middle class and poor. Nearly every major aspect of the health bill pushes in the other direction. This fact helps explain why Obama was willing to spend so much political capital on the issue, even though it did not appear to be his top priority as a presidential candidate. Beyond

the health reform’s effect on the medical system, it is the centerpiece of his deliberate effort to end what historians have called the age of Ronald Reagan. Speaking to an ebullient audience of Democratic legislators and White House aides at the bill-signing ceremony on N T A R Y Tuesday, Obama claimed that health reform would “mark a new season in America.” He added, “We have now just enshrined, as soon as I sign this bill, the core principle that everybody should have some basic security when it comes to their health care.” The bill is probably the most sweeping piece of federal legislation since Medicare was passed in 1965. It aims to smooth out one of the roughest edges in American society — the inability of many people to afford medical care after they lose a job or get sick. And it would do so in large measure by taxing the rich. See Reagan / F6

A widening gap

From 1979 to 2005, incomes for the very highest earners increased almost fourfold, while the median income went up only 12 percent. Meanwhile tax rates on the highest earners have gone down more than tax rates on other workers.

Oregon needs work on reading

O

regonians shouldn’t be satisfied with how well their children are learning to read. Glancing over state test results, many parents may have been pleased to see that

more and more Oregon students are reaching the state’s gradelevel reading benchmarks. Bend students, for instance, are doing even better. Students in Bend schools are meeting state standards in reading better than other Oregon students at almost all grade levels, according to the latest state report card. The trouble is, Oregon students are not stacking up well nationally, as The Oregonian reported on Thursday. Oregon teachers have done a good job of getting more students who read below their grade level to read at their grade level. As they would likely tell you, they’d like their students to do even better. Among tested fourth-graders in public schools, about 70 percent of students in Oregon read at levels below what is considered proficient, according to the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress. By the time Oregon students reach eighth grade, they do a bit better on average. But, once again, nearly 70 percent of them read at levels below what is considered proficient. Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, isn’t satisfied with the nation’s performance on the NAEP in reading or math. “Like the NAEP 2009 math scores released last fall, the reading scores

demonstrate that students aren’t making the progress necessary to compete in the global economy,” he told The Associated Press. Oregon’s Department of Education took the report as a call to action. They put together a new, optional reading instruction plan for school districts. It sounds good in some ways. It’s based on research of what works. The Springfield School District has had some success with many of its recommendations. The NAEP reading tests are indeed just one test — just one measure of the performance of Oregon students. Oregon students on other national tests do well, such as the SAT and the ACT, but that’s been primarily for collegebound students. Oregon’s achievements on the SAT and ACT are something to be proud of. And we’d think it’s evidence that Oregon’s teachers will be able to do better for other students on reading as well.

A step forward in arms control T

he nearly thermonuclear debate on health care shoved almost all other issues into the background last week. But the United States and Russia have made a significant breakthrough in nuclear arms. The countries expect to sign a treaty next month to cut their nuclear weapons. It could mean nuclear arsenals would be slashed to their lowest levels in 50 years. The reduction would be a foreign policy victory for President Barack Obama and Americans of almost every stripe. Under the proposed treaty, each side would have to cut deployed strategic warheads to 1,550 from the 2,200 now allowed, according to The New York Times. Launchers would have to be cut to 800 from 1,600. Nuclear missiles and heavy bombers would be capped at 700 each, the newspaper reported. There’d still be plenty of bombs. The proposed treaty is important in at least two strategic areas. It doesn’t set limits on missile defense, which could be much more critical to

The treaty does give the United States most of what it sought without having to make unacceptable concessions. United States’ security in the future than nukes. And reducing the number of warheads, launchers, missiles and bombers may better enable the U.S. to focus on the kinds of wars the U.S. is fighting now and is likely to fight in the future. Those wars aren’t fought with nukes. The treaty won’t please everybody. Obama is going to need the support of Republican Senators to ratify it. He needs 67 votes. Some are already complaining about the nonbinding language in the treaty’s preamble that mentions defensive missile systems and other changes to inspections. But the treaty does give the United States most of what it sought without having to make unacceptable concessions.

My Nickel’s Worth Cell phone safety I was driving through Bend recently, and I noticed the man driving the car next to me having an animated conversation on his cell phone. One hand on the wheel, one hand on the phone. As we approached an intersection, the stop light had already turned yellow. I stopped, he drove right through, without even a wink of his brake lights. As his car receded in the distance, the phone never left his ear. His car had no company markings, so whether his conversation was in the “pursuit of his employment,” who knows. More importantly, who cares? He could have been closing a multi-million dollar deal, or he could have been talking to his wife about what he was bringing home for dinner. Either way, he was a distracted driver because of his cell phone. And isn’t that the whole reason we were supposed to have a new cell phone safety law? Our lawmakers were given the task of enacting a simple piece of legislation to protect the safety of Oregon drivers. Ban the use of cell phones without a hands-free device. Period. Could it have been any easier than that? A fifthgrade civics class could have written a more logical, less ambiguous law than the one that we ended up with. And this is called “leadership”? It’s little wonder our state and our country is in the condition it’s in. Paul Bianchina Bend

Time for impeachment Now that Obama has put our country into debt that our grandchildren will

still be trying to pay off, is anybody out there questioning his ability to lead the country into anything but misery? Let the impeachment begin; it may already be too late. Judith Bradshaw Redmond

Going to Idaho I was in Idaho on business recently. On Monday, March 8, in Lewiston, I was listening to a local NPR station. A man named Diedrick, I believe, was being asked about the economy in the Lewiston/Clarkston area. I wasn’t paying too much attention until he commented that his office was receiving many inquiries from Oregon businesses about the economic and tax environment in the Lewiston area. He cited specifically Measures 66 and 67 as the reasons stated by the Oregon contacts for their interest in relocating to Idaho. On Thursday, March 11, while in Boise, also on NPR, Mike Moyle, the majority leader in the Idaho House of Representatives, was being interviewed. He was being asked about his views on a variety of things, including the relationship between the state and private sectors. Moyle, during the interview, stated that Idaho is seeing increased interest from Oregon businesses in relocating to Idaho. As in Lewiston, the reason cited was the passage of the two tax measures in Oregon. Moyle thought it was great good fortune for the economy of Idaho that Oregon voters had passed those two tax increases. I thought the folks in Oregon would be interested to know that passing Measures 66 and 67 may very well be

of more benefit to the folks in Idaho than to us here in Oregon. John Thompson Bend

A taxing habit Give me a break. Tax this tax that; when are people going to get a clue? We are taxing ourselves to death. Smoking has been made the scapegoat for all things wrong and we smokers have had enough. We pay our share of property, gas taxes, etc., just like everyone else. We also pay additional taxes for our habit of smoking. Since it seems everyone is on this kick of wanting to tax bad habits, let’s tax the obese; their health is at risk for heart failure, difficulty in breathing, diabetes and joint damage. There are more obese people in this country than there are smokers so the government could possibly make a lot of money to help “offset the health-related costs” of the obese; especially if they were taxed for every 5 pounds over their designated weight/height ratio as we are taxed for every pack we buy. As the writer for the March 1 article wrote, “just glance around, confirms that way too many young Oregonians” are well on their way to becoming obese, “and we must do all that we can to end this dirty and destructive habit” of overeating. If you think taxing the obese is too harsh, then let’s tax sugar, sweets in any form. We have to ensure that people need others to tell them how to live, eat and breathe. Heaven forbid. We wouldn’t want this to be a free society of choice. Marilyn Vigoren La Pine

Help the hungry in our region by becoming a volunteer By Mary Sojourner Bulletin guest columnist

Y

es, Virginia, there is hunger after the holidays. “Number of homeless is up by 7 percent in region,” by Erin Golden, The Bulletin, March 19. I walked into Bend’s Community Center as a volunteer one Saturday in late November of last year. For five hours, I chopped cabbage for coleslaw, bagged sandwiches, cut up potatoes and learned about the center. Taffy Gleason, the director, worked right alongside the seven or eight of us preparing food for the next day’s Feed The Hungry weekly event. She explained that hot food would be served for breakfast and noon dinner. Our guests would take away bag lunches. The counter in the big dining hall held dozens of free loaves of natural grain breads that had been gleaned from local bakeries by a volunteer. I learned that Bend’s Community Center provided much more than healthy food for homeless, unemployed and pov-

IN MY VIEW erty level individuals and families. The center also offered on-the-job training, formal prom gowns-on-loan through Becca’s Closet, a diaper bank and thrift store. I worked as a volunteer throughout the holidays. The center was full of other volunteers wanting to give more than presents to friends and family, more than feasts for those they knew. I met business owners, college and high school kids, nurses, retired women and men, entire families — and more than a few unemployed people who told me that volunteering gave purpose to their sometimes too-empty days. The coordinator of volunteers was flooded with volunteer applications. She had filled all her Feed the Hungry slots until mid-January, so we fielded e-mails, helped people fill out applications and found other tasks for those who wanted to give. Around the first of the year, the coor-

dinator of volunteers left to go forward with a new phase of her life. I was asked to step into her shoes, not as a volunteer, but as an employee of Experience Works, a federal program that provides on-thejob training for low-income older workers who need to brush up their skills for re-entry in the job market. I was delighted to take the job, especially since I believed I would be coordinating hundreds of volunteers eager to keep Bend’s Community Center flourishing. It seemed like a dream job — I was working with a big team, making a real difference in real peoples’ lives. Then a different reality set in. The hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers began to dwindle to a hundred, then dozens, most of them loyal women and men who had been showing up to give their time every Saturday, and for every fundraising and special event for years. I wondered what was going on. I wondered if I was doing something wrong. I talked with a few of the volunteers who had stopped coming in. Some of

them were no longer able to fit volunteering into their increasingly busy lives — for reasons of economic pressure, health, care-giving elderly relatives, the school year ramping up for their children. Others were caught in their own struggles to find work, pay the mortgage, stretch an already thin budget even thinner. But that didn’t account for the hundreds of others who had gone missing. So I asked Taffy and she told me it was an annual pattern: hundreds of volunteers and food and money donations came in for the holidays through November and December, but then come January, volunteers and donations began to disappear. The holidays were over. That helped me understand. I continued to send out appeals for volunteers. The loyal showed up, again and again. A few new people arrived and seemed to be on their way to becoming part of the loyal. I thought about ways to expand our volunteer base: contact high school and college teachers who have their students do hands-on work in the community;

reach out to churches, youth, senior and other local organizations; arrange for Taffy Gleason to give talks to community groups. I began to implement the plans. Then on March 19, I read the headline in The Bulletin, “Number of homeless is up 7 percent in the region,” and I wanted to do something more far-ranging. I wanted to reach the thousands of people who might want to continue to give to those less fortunate than they are — and anyone who might not fully realize that a hungry child, a famished older person, a recently homeless family who’d been able to feed body and spirit on Christmas Day at any of our local charities, might well have found themselves going hungry less than a few days later. Yes, Virginia — and Dave and Susan and Bill — there is hunger after the holidays, and while it may be too late for you to be last year’s Santa Claus, you can sign on to be the Easter Bunny right now for your less fortunate neighbors. Mary Sojourner lives in Bend.


THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 28, 2010 F3

O Is it go easy or go for broke, Obama? A

fter the bloodletting over the health-care bill, President Obama is now at a crossroads. Not one opposition member voted for his health-care reform. That, along with tawdry buyoffs for fence-sitting members of the Senate and a reconciliation process that avoids another Senate vote have made a mockery of Obama’s former healing campaign rhetoric. In reaction, will the president now pick his next fights more carefully — avoiding the sort of shady legislative dealings and us-vs.-them rhetoric that helped ram this bill through? Or will the methods used to pass “Obamacare,” which many polls deemed unpopular leading up to this weekend’s vote, become the model formula for a new damn-the-torpedoes, full-speed-ahead progressive agenda? We will learn soon on a variety of issues. Obama may well try again for a comprehensive cap-and-trade bill to reduce carbon inputs. The increased taxes resulting from such legislation would trickle down into added fees on power bills for households and businesses. Such European-style state regulation would delight his liberal base and cement his credentials as our first activist green president. Yet, given the shaky economy and controversies over the very science of global warming, forcing cap-and-trade through would ensure more monthslong acrimony — identical, in other

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON words, to the health-care fury. Far easier world be a bipartisan effort aimed at more reliance on nuclear power, and radical expansion of drilling for vast deposits of domestic natural gas. Pro-industry supporters would welcome the boost for employment and greater independence from costly foreign energy. Liberals could applaud fewer greenhouse gases than currently produced from existing coal-fired plants. President Obama apparently also wants to do comprehensive immigration — and spoke of his plans in a taped video at this past weekend’s immigration march in Washington. But Obama’s version of comprehensively solving illegal immigration through earned citizenship/amnesty can likely only be pushed through by legislative gymnastics, demonizing the opposition as nativists and energizing partisan activists by paying them back for their blanket support in the 2008 campaign. In other words, it will also require the same kind of knockdown, drag-out

fight we just saw over health care. Again, far better for the country would be a bipartisan effort to take less-dramatic steps at ending the influx of illegal aliens. The president could do an about-face and complete the stalled border fence, and enforce all existing laws against employers of illegal aliens — putting off the messy fight over amnesty and guest workers until the borders are secure. Liberals and unions would welcome the rise in wages once low-income American laborers had fewer illegal competitors. Conservatives could be assured that without an annual addition of a million new illegal aliens, there would be greater chances for integration and assimilation within American society. It could be a win/win situation for everyone — except a minority who counts on open borders and serial amnesties for those who break federal laws, along with a Mexican government that exports its population rather than make the necessary changes to allow them to stay with their families at home. Then there are the now-record annual deficits and spiraling national debt. Even the new revenue from a promised return to the higher Clintonera tax rates and a radical lifting on the caps on income subject to payroll taxes won’t balance the budget. So as Obama continues to grow the government, he’ll bring on even more partisan fights over ever-higher taxes.

Or he can acknowledge that new local, state, payroll health-care and income taxes will soon take over 60 percent of incomes of precisely those who pay the majority of existing taxes — and decide instead to offer a real freeze of all federal spending to the rate of inflation. These areas where Obama could find centrist solutions and bridge differences are almost endless — from an end to agricultural subsidies to energy independence. But getting things done incrementally and quietly would not bring out the drama, the headlines and the partisan emotions like the fight over health care. What lessons will the president draw for the future from last week’s healthcare brawl? I doubt it will be that the president and Congress should not ram through unpopular legislation on a strictly partisan and bare majority. More likely, Obama’s conclusion will be that a win is a win, and it’s time to move on for more of the same bareknuckles brawling. If the latter is true, Americans may see more change but surely will end up with far less hope. Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and historian at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and editor, most recently, of “Makers of Ancient Strategy: From the Persian Wars to the Fall of Rome.”

The face of America is changing By Mark Bowden The Philadelphia Inquirer

G

rowing up in the 1950s, I first became aware of a more colorful world beyond the neat lawns of my Chicago suburb because of the civil rights movement. I attended St. Petronille elementary school and viewed my community through windows of stained glass. In that naive state, I believed the world contained only two kinds of people: Catholics, who subscribed to our “one true faith,” and “publics,” the less spiritually fortunate herded into public schools. I had never met a Jew. I had never even heard of Islam, Hinduism, or any of the world’s other faiths. Everyone I knew was Christian and white. But I heard plenty about “Negroes.” Their struggle for equal rights reached me through television, the Chicago Tribune I delivered every morning, and the glossy pages of the Life magazine I eagerly awaited every week. As with many of my generation, the belief that the protesters were right — and in the bedrock American principle that all men are created equal — was the first strong conviction of my life. I believed that despite the overt racism of my Alabama-born grandfather, who freely used the vulgar variant of the word “Negro, which my parents forbade in our house. And I believed it despite the troubling recognition that equal rights would change the comfortable world I knew. And it has — in some ways more than I imagined, in some ways less. But as I near the end of my sixth decade, I

live in an America where my white, Anglo-Saxon slice of the demographic pie is steadily shrinking. Over the next 40 years, statistical projections show, those “other” Americans — the ones I grew up calling “minorities” — will together form more than half the population. In other words, I may live long enough to be a minority myself. In his new book “The Next Hundred Million: America in 2050,” Joel Kotkin notes that America has the highest fertility rate of any advanced country, primarily because of its nonwhite citizens. It remains the primary destination of the world’s migrants, and no matter how many walls and laws are put up, they will keep coming. Unlike past waves of immigrants, today’s newcomers tend to be educated and skilled. Kotkin aptly describes the U.S. population as “a dazzling and complex composite,” and it’s becoming more so. He predicts Latino and Asian numbers to triple by 2050. Old white guys like me don’t need the weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. For most Americans with my mileage, this multiethnic, multiracial course is more than a matter of dry statistics. Comedian Chris Rock

has a memorable routine in which he warns, “In America, you have to be careful who you hate, ‘cause they’ll end up in your family.” My immediate family is still mostly Anglo-Irish-German-Christian (which itself testifies to generations of intermingling), but it is also African-American, Russian, Danish, Jewish and Korean. There’s also a hardy strain of Italian cousins, and a Greek wedding is on the horizon. This is nothing new. As anyone who has had his DNA analyzed will tell you, America is hybrid from way back. In 1742, before the nation even existed or was called a “melting pot,” a Moravian elder described his and my home turf this way: “Pennsylvania is a compleat Babel.” The famous 18th-century Lutheran missionary Heinrich Muhlenberg worried about the purity of his Lutheran faith in polyglot Philadelphia, noting with alarm that young people would “gradually degenerate … mixing with other nationalities.” When the walls of nationality and religion started falling, there remained race. During the Civil War, slave owners spread fears of “miscegenation,” warning that freed blacks would intermarry with and pollute the purity of the white race, prompting Abraham Lincoln to famously counter that the most fervid racial mixing was taking place on their own plantations. Feared, condemned, and resisted every step of the way, and nearly always accompanied by violence and struggle, this cross-pollination is America. This column will likely provoke the usual sneers, but those who cling to myths of racial purity in this country are swim-

ming against an unstoppable tide. A recent Gallup poll showed that 95 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 approve of interracial dating, compared with only 45 percent of those over 64. As the stubborn walls of racial and ethnic identity erode, racism loses meaning. When skin color sends no more of a signal than eye or hair color (and only then), racism will be dead. Future, browner generations will wonder what all the fuss was about. Ours was the first nation in the world founded on an idea, not on some notion of ethnic, racial or religious primacy. Universal equality, the first big idea I embraced as a child, remains the most revolutionary concept in human history. It was flatly stated by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, and it was enforced at terrible cost by Union armies in the Civil War. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. demanded that we live up to it in the last century, and it defines our struggle against Islamist theocrats today. Some worry that becoming a “dazzling and complex composite” will destroy our heritage. It is fulfilling it. It is why America remains the model in a world where borders are so easily crossed, and where class barriers are falling victim to education and instant global communication. It is why America remains the antidote to all forms of tyranny. It is the nation we were destined to be. Mark Bowden is a journalist and author, most recently, of “The Best Game Ever.”

Saving the Google students from themselves By Sara Scribner Los Angeles Times

T

he current generation of kindergartners to 12th graders — those born between 1991 and 2004 — has no memory of a time before Google. But although these students are far more tech savvy than their parents and are perpetually connected to the Internet, they know a lot less than they think. And worse, they don’t know what they don’t know. As a librarian in the Pasadena, Calif., Unified School District, I teach students research skills. But I’ve just been pink-slipped, along with five other middle school and high school librarians, and only a parcel tax on the city’s May ballot can save the district’s libraries. Closing libraries is always a bad idea, but for the Google generation, it could be disastrous. In a time when information literacy is increasingly crucial to life and work, not teaching kids how to search for information is like sending them out into the world without knowing how to read. Instead of simply navigating books and the Readers’ Guide to Periodical Literature — an annual index of magazine and newspaper articles used in the olden days — today’s students sift through an infinite number of options: books, Internet sources, academic databases. Much of the time they opt for

Google, which is like being tossed into the ocean without a paddle. An info-literate student can find the right bit of information amid the sea of irrelevance and misinformation. But any college librarian will tell you that freshman research skills are absolutely abysmal. Before they graduate from high school, students need to be able to understand the phenomenal number of information options at their fingertips, learn how to work with non-Googlestyle search queries, avoid plagiarism and judge whether the facts before them were culled by an expert in the field or tossed off by a crackpot in the basement. As even struggling school districts manage to place computers in classrooms, it’s difficult to find a child without Internet access. But look closer at what happens when students undertake an academic task as simple as researching global warming — tens of millions of hits on Google — and it becomes clear that the so-called divide is not digital but informational. It’s not about access; it’s about agility. Most children consider a computer search second nature, so trying to give them instruction or advice can be difficult. Recently, noticing that a sixthgrader didn’t know how to search the school library catalog, I tried to show him the steps. “You don’t need to tell

me,” he said, clearly insulted. “I know how to use a computer!” It is especially shocking when students attempt to tap into the library’s catalog system by entering a book search on Amazon or searching the Web site for Accelerated Reader’s BookFinder (an online database that contains every book included in the Accelerated Reader program). They sometimes don’t understand that these are discrete sites and systems. For them, the Internet is one big amorphous information universe. And to most kids, whatever they read on the Internet is “all good.” I’ve been told, quite emphatically, that the Apollo moonwalk never happened, the Holocaust was a hoax and George W. Bush orchestrated 9/11 — all based on text, photos or videos found online. Although students might be able to hack through a school’s video-game blocking devices, they have trouble formulating successful search queries and making sense of what they find. This needs to be taught — again and again and again, in different grades and in different ways. Librarians can show students how to judge a Web site and how to avoid landing on bogus ones. We can also train them to come up with the kind of precision search terms that could save them hours of sorting through a heap of useless hits.

To research global warming, for example, I’d suggest an academic database such as ProQuest’s eLibrary or SIRS Researcher, which have age-appropriate content. Or I’d steer students to reliable Internet sources from library subscription sites such as Britannica Online, which are vetted by experts. I could also teach them to use Google’s advanced features. Instead of laying off librarians, we should be studying how children think about information and technology. We need professionals to advocate for teaching information literacy from an early age. We need librarians to love books — to inspire kids to turn off the screen sometimes and get caught up in a story — but we also need them to train students to manipulate search engines and databases, to think about them in a fresh way. Instead of closing library doors, we need to give librarians the time to teach what they know: basic research survival skills that are as important as reading, writing and math. If we don’t teach our kids to take charge of information, they will get swept aside by it. Sara Scribner is a librarian at Blair International Baccalaureate School, a public middle and high school in Pasadena, Calif. She wrote this for the Los Angeles Times.

THOMAS FRIEDMAN

Tea party without the nuts P

resident Barack Obama’s winning passage of national health care is both exhilarating and sobering. Covering so many uninsured Americans is a historic achievement. But the president had to postpone trips, buy off companies and cut every conceivable side deal to just barely make it happen, without a single Republican vote. If the Democrats now lose seats in the midterm elections, we’re headed for even worse gridlock, even though we still have so much more nation-building for America to do — from education to energy to environment to innovation to tax policy. That is why I want my own tea party. I want a tea party of the radical center. Say what? I write often about innovation in energy and education. But I’ve come to realize that none of these innovations will emerge at scale until we get the most important innovation of all — political innovation that will empower independents and centrists, which describes a lot of the country. Larry Diamond, a Stanford University democracy expert, put it best: “If you don’t get governance right, it is very hard to get anything else right that government needs to deal with. We have to rethink in some basic ways how our political institutions work, because they are increasingly incapable of delivering effective solutions any longer.” My definition of broken is simple. It is a system in which Republicans will be voted out for doing the right thing (raising taxes when needed) and Democrats will be voted out for doing the right thing (cutting services when needed). When your political system punishes lawmakers for the doing the right things, it is broken. That is why we need political innovation that takes America’s disempowered radical center and enables it to act in proportion to its true size, unconstrained by the two parties, interest groups and orthodoxies that have tied our politics in knots. The radical center is “radical” in its desire for a radical departure from politics as usual. It advocates: raising taxes to close our budgetary shortfalls, but doing so with a spirit of equity and social justice; guaranteeing that every American is covered by health insurance, but with market reforms to really bring down costs; legally expanding immigration to attract more job-creators to America’s shores; increasing corporate tax credits for research and lowering corporate taxes if companies will move more manufacturing jobs back onshore; investing more in our public schools, while insisting on rising national education standards and greater accountability for teachers, principals and parents; massively investing in clean energy, including nuclear, while allowing more offshore drilling in the transition. You get the idea. How best to promote these hybrid ideas? Break the oligopoly of our two-party system. Diamond suggests two innovations. First, let every state emulate California’s recent grass-roots initiative that took away the power to design congressional districts from the state Legislature and put it in the hands of an independent, politically neutral Citizens Redistricting Commission. Second, get states to adopt “alternative voting.” One reason why independent third-party, centrist candidates cannot get elected is because if, in a three-person race, a Democrat votes for an independent, and the independent loses, the Democrat fears his vote will have actually helped the Republican win, or vice versa. Alternative voting allows you to rank the independent candidate your No. 1 choice, and the Democrat or Republican No. 2. Therefore, if the independent does not win, your vote is immediately transferred to your second choice, say, the Democrat. Therefore, you have no fear that in voting for an independent you might help elect your real nightmare — the Republican. Obama won the presidency by tapping the center — centrist Democrats, independents and Republicans who wanted to see nation-building at home “to make their own lives and those of others better,” said Tim Shriver, the CEO of the Special Olympics. They saw in Obama a pragmatist who could pull us together for pragmatic solutions. But hyperpartisanship has frustrated those hopes. If that radical center wants to be empowered, it can’t just whine. It needs its own grassroots movement to promote reforms like nonpartisan redistricting and alternative voting in every state. It’s tea time for the center.

The secret life of Abe Lincoln

New book casts 16th president as a vampire hunter — with an axe By Christop her Borrelli Ch icago Tribune

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — On a recent afternoon, Tom Schwartz, the state historian of Illinois, greeted Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of “The Big Book of Porn.” They shook hands in the lobby of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, then crossed the street to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. They entered an elevator that carried them beneath the street, to the Lincoln archives. Here, the state keeps one of five known copies of the Gettysburg Address. Did Seth want to hold it? Yes, he did. He had flown in from Los Angeles for the day, to start the tour for his latest best-seller, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” He was starting the tour at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum — at the request of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. Schwartz was thrilled. Everyone was thrilled. The manager of the gift shop told him she didn’t want to read his book at first because it seemed so stupid and some of her customers have “been getting bent out of shape” just because she carries his book — what with that cover of Abe holding a blood-splattered ax — but she read his book and she’s glad she read his book because it’s surprisingly well-done considering that it’s about, you know, Abraham Lincoln hunting vampires. He smiled. Then he said what he’s been saying since last spring, since his previous book, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” sold more than 1 million copies. He said, thanks. A curious sequence of events have happened to Seth Grahame-Smith, 34, and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” which was released March 2. Last year, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” became an out-ofleft-field hit. Which led to Grand Central Publishing (a Hachette imprint) signing him to write a novel about Lincoln’s secret war with the undead. Which led to Tim Burton deciding to make an “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” movie. Which led Grand Central to order a 200,000-copy first printing of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Which led to shockingly appreciative reviews from the Los Angeles Times and Time magazine. Which led, most shockingly of all, to historical institutions and Lincoln scholars embracing him: Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of the best-selling Lincoln history “Team of Rivals”? Yup. She endorsed the book on National Public Radio, no less. The Smithsonian? It hosted the author two weeks ago. The Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum — the most visited presidential library in the country? “I’m a huge ‘Twilight’ fan,” said deputy director Jennifer Tirey. “I have ‘Twilight’ things in my office, and I’m always trying to find new things that attract new audiences, and when I saw this book was coming, I jumped. I got a little concerned that people would think we were actually supporting vampires. We’re not. But we’re not here to cater to historians. We’re here to support all sorts of ideas about Lincoln — it’s not like even Lincoln scholars agree on everything related to Lincoln anyway.” Which is why, for a short time last month, in conjunction with Grahame-Smith’s book, the museum kept a small exhibit dedicated to Lincoln’s connections with the gothic — a display that even included the last ax Lincoln wielded, though probably not against vampires.

‘Moment of inspiration’ Grahame-Smith tucked in his lower lip, pushed his head forward and studied a painting

with concentration. He’s not really a literary guy. He wrote a few novelty books before the zombies-and-Austen mash-up, but really he’s more of a TV guy. He produced documentaries for the History Channel. The Lincoln-vampire idea came to him while standing in a bookstore. “Right up front there was the Lincoln table. Next to it was the ‘Twilight’ table. That was the moment of inspiration,” he said. “People can’t get enough of those things. I wondered why no one had thought to combine them. “But I’m not saying Lincoln is fair game. My goal was to get the history right within the frame of a vampire story. What struck me was how beset this guy’s life had been with actual violence and tragedy — how gothic it was, and how many opportunities there really were for vampires.” As for opposition? There is some. There is Richard Norton Smith, founding director of the Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, now a scholar-in-residence at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. He did not respond to requests for an interview. But he recently told the Daily Beast Web site that a Lincoln-led vampire tale was “a true bastardization of the Lincoln story.” Which was ironic, because midway through Grahame-Smith’s tour of the museum, the author came face to face with Richard Norton Smith, who can still be seen narrating a video that introduces the institution’s hologram-fueled, seat-jolting multimedia spectacle “Ghosts of the Library.” When the video was over, Schwartz leaned over to Grahame-Smith: “He’s actually a nice guy.” “It’s OK,” the author mumbled. “It’s inevitable.” Yes, it is.

Presidential market? We called the Gerald R. Ford Museum in Grand Rapids, Mich. We asked if it would host an author who wrote a book about Gerald Ford fighting vampires. Director Elaine Didier said she would not. “But the Lincoln museum is a different kind of presidential museum, more of a Disney pyrotechnics museum. And it is Lincoln. There’s a question of distance to consider. You might get away with more than, with, oh — would the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library host ‘Ronald Reagan and the Zombies’”? We called the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley, Calif. Director Duke Blackwood said he would

Grahame-Smith also wrote “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” first have to read “Ronald Reagan and the Zombies,” if it existed. “But this is the kind of issue any of us who work with history are dealing with — how do you combine historical artifacts and scholarship with the sounds and lights that might engage a generation so wired and distracted?” The Lincoln Presidential Museum is arguably an ideal location for such a discussion. Unlike the library, which is 121 years old, the museum, which celebrates its fifth anniversary next month, has been controversial among historians from the start. Two years ago, Tirey, the deputy director, held a fashion show combining “Project Runway” contestants and models in Mary Todd Lincoln gowns. “With Seth, our question was not whether he would create a stir among scholars but whether it was appropriate for the reputation of this institution,” Schwartz said. “I read ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.’ He was respectful of Austen, so one assumed he would be with Lincoln. This is not something that embarrasses us.” But should it? Said Fred Kaplan, who wrote the acclaimed 2008 history “Lincoln: The Biography of a Writer,” a Lincoln vampire novel itself may be fine and its history accurate, but the facts of Lincoln’s life don’t support a presidential museum getting involved. “Lincoln was certainly interested in melancholy, in transience, in the shortness of time that human beings are allotted on Earth,” Kaplan said. “But it’s a vast stretch to say Lincoln has any substantial connection with the gothic or morbid. “Still, I bow in the direction of their marketing genius. Places like (the Lincoln Museum) have been looking the gorgon of pop culture in the face. Their backs are against the wall. They need to compete for subsidies and do not want to be accused of elitism.”

Plenty of fans That night, the crowd for Grahame-Smith was so large his appearance had to take place in the museum’s rotunda. Only Doris had a bigger crowd, whispered David Blanchette, the museum’s communications director. The

audience was young, wearing cargo shorts and baseball caps. Grahame-Smith spoke sheepishly. He told them he had never been to Springfield, that his book “could not have been written without the Internet,” that any authenticity it has in regard to Illinois geography is thanks to Google Maps. He asked if there were any questions. There were: “Which is harder to kill — a vampire or a zombie?” A vampire, he said. How many vampires did Abraham Lincoln kill? “When he was a prairie lawyer,” Grahame-Smith explained, “he was killing vampires up and down the state of Illinois. So, a lot.”

Earlier in the day he said he expected to be confronted by outraged scholars, especially here, in the Land of Lincoln. But he was never challenged. He told the crowd that teachers have told him they couldn’t get their kids to read Jane Austen until “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” He said it to illustrate that all it took to get 400 people in the audience were a few blood-suckers. “OK, last question?” “How about doing Roosevelt next?” a man shouted. “Only hunting werewolves?” Grahame-Smith smiled. “Let’s not go there,” he said.

Anne Perry loses thread in twisty tale “ T h e Sheen on the Silk” by Anne Perry (Ballantine Books, 528 pgs., $27)

British novelist Anne Perry has built her name and a successful career with Victorian mysteries and other books set in a reasonably familiar past. In “The Sheen on the Silk,” she steps back almost 800 years to the vanished culture of Byzantium in the late 13th century, but doesn’t quite find her footing. The problem is not that Perry hasn’t done her homework; she gives the reader a real feel for the sights, sounds and smells of Constantinople in the time of the Crusades, as well as tastes of Venice, Rome, Sicily and Jerusalem. The problem is that

her heroine is never completely realized, surrounded by repetition and baroque overwriting in almost every other area. “Sheen” at first feels like a mystery. Anna Lascaris Zarides, a physician, comes to Constantinople to prove that her twin brother Justinian was innocent of a murder. Disguised as Anastasius, a eunuch, Anna has the freedom to treat men and women from the poorest to the noblest ranks and to ask endless questions about Justinian and his friends. She does it within the historic context of a period when European ambitions pressed against the old Eastern Roman Empire from the West, the rising power

of Islam created tensions from the East, and Christians everywhere squabbled over theology. There is a lot of talk in “Sheen” about the “Filioque” clause in the Nicene Creed, one of the foundational statements of belief in traditional Christianity. “Filioque” refers to the source of the Holy Spirit and means “and of the Son.” The Western Church inserted the clause into the Creed unilaterally in 589 at the Third Council of Toledo. The Orthodox Churches rejected that, insisting the Spirit came from the Father, period. And if the paragraph above made your eyes glaze over, just wait. The Eastern Orthodox and

Latin branches of the Christian Church formally excommunicated one another over the Filioque in the ninth century. In “Sheen,” it’s a huge issue, as rule-bound Romans try to make freer Orthodox convert en masse. A huge cast includes some historic figures (the Byzantine Emperor Michael VIII Palaeologus) and others who are fictional. Most of them are explored in far too much detail. Many of them prove forgettable as the story line stretches out over more than a decade, sagging in the process. But the mystery, as well as the guilty secret Anna carries, lose their interest about halfway into this too-big book. It would be a better, less-Byzantine story with fewer characters — and more character development.

THE LONG PUSH

for health care reform he U.S. has been the only industrialized nation without universal health care — about 47 million Americans lack health insurance and millions more are underinsured. Efforts over the past 100 years to expand and reform the health care system have met with strong resistance, but a major bill was signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010.

Continued from F1 A big chunk of the money to pay for the bill comes from lifting payroll taxes on households making more than $250,000. On average, the annual tax bill for households making more than $1 million a year will rise by $46,000 in 2013, according to the Tax Policy Center, a Washington research group. Another major piece of financing would cut government subsidies to private insurers in Medicare, ultimately affecting their executives and shareholders. The benefits, meanwhile, flow mostly to households making less than four times the poverty level — $88,200 for a family of four people. Those without insurance in this group will become eligible to receive subsidies or to join Medicaid. Finally, the bill will also reduce a different kind of inequality. In the broadest sense, insurance is meant to spread the costs of an individual’s misfortune — illness, death, fire, flood — across society. Since the late 1970s, though, the share of Americans with health insurance has shrunk. As a result, the gap between the economic well-being of the sick and the healthy has been growing, at virtually every level of the income distribution. The health reform bill will reverse that trend. By 2019, 95 percent of people are projected to be covered, up from 85 percent today (and about 90 percent in the late 1970s). Even affluent families ineligible for subsidies will benefit if they lose their insurance, by being able to buy a plan that can no longer charge more for pre-existing conditions. In effect, healthy families will be picking up most of the bill — and their insurance will be somewhat more expensive than it otherwise would have been. Much about health reform remains unknown. Maybe it will deliver Congress to the Republicans this fall, or maybe it will help the Democrats keep power. But the ways in which the bill attacks the inequality of the Reagan era — whether you love them or hate them — will probably be around for a long time. “Legislative majorities come and go,” David Frum, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, lamented on Sunday. “This health care bill is forever.” Since Obama began his presidential campaign in 2007, he has had a complicated relationship with the Reagan legacy. He has been more willing than many other Democrats to praise President Reagan. “Reagan’s central insight — that the liberal welfare state had grown complacent and overly bureaucratic,” Obama wrote in his second book, “contained a good deal of truth.” Most notably, he praised Reagan as a president who “changed the trajectory of America.” But Obama also argued that the Reagan administration had gone too far, and that if elected, he would try to put the country on a new trajectory. Since 1980, median real household income has risen less than 15 percent. The only period of strong middle-class income growth during this time came in the mid- and late 1990s, which by coincidence was also the one time when taxes on the affluent were rising. For most of the last three decades, tax rates for the wealthy have been falling, while their pretax pay has been rising rapidly. Real incomes at the 99.99th percentile have jumped more than 300 percent since 1980. At the 99th percentile — about $300,000 today — real pay has roughly doubled. The laissez-faire revolution that Reagan started did not cause these trends. But its policies — tax cuts, light regulation, a patchwork safety net — have contributed to them. Above all, the central question that both the Reagan and Obama administrations have tried to answer — what is the proper balance between the market and the government? — remains unresolved. But the bill signed on Tuesday certainly shifts our place on that spectrum. Before he became Obama’s top economic adviser, Lawrence Summers told me a story about helping his daughter study for her Advanced Placement exam in American history. While doing so, Summers realized that the federal government had not passed major social legislation in decades. There was the frenzy of the New Deal, followed by the GI Bill, the Interstate Highway System, civil rights and Medicare — and then nothing worth its own section in the history books. Now there is.

Ron Rash immerses himself in lives of mountain dwellers just scraping by “Burning Bright” by Ron Rash (Ecco, 205 pgs., $22.99)

By Connie O g le McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Modern sensibilities have inched into the lives of the people who inhabit Ron Rash’s uneasy stories about Appalachia. They don’t live exactly the way their great-grandfathers did. They drive big pickups. They love the guitar solo that opens Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” (they might even call it a masterpiece, if they were inclined to use that word). And they are ravaged not by the Civil War or the Great Depression but by the latest recession and methamphetamine. But echoes of the past stubbornly cling to these hills, where tracts are being bought up by Floridians who gasp over the scenery without experiencing a bone-deep connection to the land. In clean, forthright, powerfully resonating prose, Rash assuredly provides a glimpse of lives often bent and broken. These are hard stories. These are hard people. But their troubles are never anything less than compelling. A professor at Western Carolina University and a two-time O. Henry Prize winner, Rash has a feel for Appalachia and its ways, its rough justice, its loyalties. He understands that, despite the advent of the iPod, the Internet and Wal-Mart, the old ways are hard to shake. In the title story, set during a drought, a farmer drapes a black snake over a barbed-wire fence, imploring the heavens for rain in accordance with folk wisdom. In “The Corpse Bird,” a suburban father who should know better hears an owl’s call and leaps into action to make sure no one will die. His wife is horrified by his behavior, and his

neighbors are angry. But he can’t help himself. In his last novel, “Serena” — a finalist for the 2009 PEN/ Faulkner Award — Rash created a she-monster of a protagonist, a cold-hearted murderer who slits an old woman’s throat without so much as a tickle of conscience. The characters in “Burning Bright” are flawed, too, but they’re not monsters, even when their actions lack compassion or are downright criminal. The worst you can say about them is “They’re trying.” The grave robber in “Dead Confederates” knows he shouldn’t dig up soldiers’ coffins in search of valuable memorabilia, but he needs to pay off his mother’s hospital bill. Like him, widower Jesse of “Into the Gorge” steals onto U.S. Park Service land to harvest ginseng to sell, not because he wants to get rich but because he might end up in the hospital one day and have no way to pay the bill. His great-aunt was born on that land, had lived on and worked it for eight decades. How much of a birthright can anyone claim? Other characters are flummoxed by family demands.

The unhappy husband of “Falling Star,” frustrated as his wife attends night classes and slowly pulls away, tries to get her attention by slashing her tires. The pawn shop owner in “Back of Beyond” has mostly written off his family, and he silently accepts stolen goods from the addicts who stumble into his shop in droves before a snowfall. Yet when he learns that his drugaddled nephew has driven his elderly parents from their home, he acts swiftly to render justice. The stories of “Burning Bright” aren’t all set in the present. They jump around in time like a catfish on the line, from the Depression-era “Hard Times,” in which a spark of compassion ignites in a farmer once eggs disappear from his henhouse. The collection’s finale, “Lincolnites,” in which the wife of a Union sympathizer encounters a hostile Confederate soldier, is set in the waning days of the war. Yet the contemporary stories aren’t much different in atmosphere and mood. The hardscrabble mentality and tone remain, reflecting a down-but-notout determination. You do what you must. You’re happy when you can be and unhappy otherwise. Life is that simple. Rash has found a conduit. He has written a memorable, if often brutal, elegy for a vanishing way of life.

B U S I N E SS IN BRIEF Foreign rail companies eye U.S. TOKYO — Walt Disney World in Florida may be the next stop for bullet-train makers in Japan and China. Central Japan Railway Co. and China South Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corp. are competing for the $8 billion President Barack Obama granted for 13 high-speed corridors across the United States, including a Tampa-Orlando line that may include a station at Disney in Orlando. The Japanese company, also known as JR Central, is eyeing North America as a shrinking population at home limits its growth. France’s Alstom, Germany’s Siemens and Canada’s Bombardier also want to sell trains, tracks and operating equipment under an initiative that Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called “an absolute game-changer for American transportation.” The highspeed corridors include New York- Buffalo, New York; Los Angeles-San Francisco; and Chicago-Detroit.

Hit hard by economy, area transit seeks slice of $100M 4 local projects – one a Bend heliport – apply for state grants The Bulletin

The closing of two aircraftmaking plants at Bend Airport in the last year eliminated nearly 500 jobs and left the airport with at least one empty factory and possibly two. Other aviation-related businesses remain, and the ultimate fate of kit-plane maker Epic Air remains unclear. But with Epic for sale and in bankruptcy and Cessna moving production of high-performance aircraft from Bend to Kansas and Mexico, two key components of Bend’s aviation business cluster are gone. “Central Oregon’s aviation industry has been hard hit by economic conditions, and nowhere in the state is it more evident than the Bend Airport,” wrote Roger Lee and Eric Strobel, executive

director and Bend manager, respectively, of Economic Development for Central Oregon, in a letter to the airport manager. While it lamented the loss of the two plane-makers, the letter signed by Lee and Strobel mostly contained support for efforts to expand and bring new business to the airport through a new heliport. The city of Bend has teamed up with Leading Edge Aviation to seek a $3.59 million grant from the state to create a location for training helicopter pilots and servicing helicopters — possibly the only site of its kind east of the Cascades. But Bend is not alone. Airports, railroads, public transit districts and businesses across the state all want a piece of $100 million in state fund-

HELLO

TOKYO — Japan’s economy is leaping to life, with surging exports to China and the United States and rising expectations for robust growth throughout the coming year. As China and much of Asia stormed back from recession in the past year, Japan had stood out as the weak sister in the region, with stagnant employment, creeping deflation and a humiliating quality-andcredibility scandal at Toyota, the country’s largest and most-respected company. But data released last week by the Finance Ministry show that, when the world is in a buying mood, the world’s secondlargest economy has lost none of its ability to export high-quality consumer electronics, automobiles, heavy equipment and assembly-line machinery. Exports in February increased at the fastest pace in three decades, jumping 45 percent from a year ago, as shipments to all regions of the world rose, according to the government. Exports have risen sharply for three consecutive months.

By Brad Stone SAN FRANCISCO — Jezper Soderlund, a music producer in Gothenburg, Sweden, was thrilled to receive a one-word email message earlier this month. The word was “no.” The sender of the e-mail message was perhaps the most famous businessman in the world, Steven P. Jobs, chief executive of Apple. Soderlund had written to Jobs asking if he would be able to link Inside his iPhone’s • Developing data service early apps to the forthfor the iPad, coming iPad. Page G5 Jobs wrote back within 30 minutes, and though the reply was perfunctory, it still made Soderlund’s day — and then echoed around the world, after he forwarded the exchange to a blog devoted to Apple news. “When I woke up the next day, it was all over the Web,” Soderlund said. “Almost every Mac Web site had picked it up, and the biggest newspaper in town wrote about it. We had more visits to my Web site in 12 hours than we had all year. It was crazy.” Apple is a notoriously secretive company. Its few public statements are dissected by its knowledgeable fans with the vigor of forensic experts. But Jobs sometimes takes a more intimate approach to informationsharing — and when his e-mail messages pop up on the computer screens of random fans and critics, they can inspire ecstasy and awe. “Oh my God, I am never cleaning my in-box again,” Devir Kahan says in an eight-minute YouTube video he made last month after hearing from Jobs.

Japan’s economy rebounds in February

WASHINGTON — Consumer confidence was higher than anticipated in March as companies slowed the pace of job cuts and stocks advanced. The Reuters/University of Michigan final consumer sentiment index for this month held at 73.6. The preliminary reading for the measure, released March 12, was 72.5. Economists forecast the final gauge would fall to 73, according to the median estimate in a Bloomberg News survey. Gains in confidence and fewer job losses may help sustain consumer spending and fuel the economy in coming months. A pickup in Americans’ purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the economy, hinges on employment growth that has yet to materialize. — From wire reports

For networking, local businesses say face-to-face meetings still key By Kimberly Bowker The Bulletin

Two people sit together at a table for a designated four minutes. They talk, drink wine and connect with each other before moving to another four-minute interaction with someone else. But it’s not love these people are looking for — it’s a business referral. Marketing in Minutes LLC, a Bend business, hosts speed marketing events six times a year to promote networking and business growth. “It’s basically like speed dating, but instead of making a love connection, you make a business connection,” said Cyndi Williams, the co-owner. Networking is the most important

thing people can do to build business, she said. Networking presents itself in many forms, especially in the 21st century with the popularity of online networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The more traditional framework of face-to-face networking, though, is still prominent at local events and organizations. The speed marketing events are held at Johnny Carino’s in Bend. From 14 to 18 participants receive a scorecard where they record notes and rate the likelihood of following up with the people they meet. The event guarantees that participants meet everyone in the room. It is helpful to maintain network-

ing habits during a healthy economy, according to Williams, so in slower periods professionals and business owners don’t have to re-establish themselves. Marshall Burgtorf, co-owner of Real Stream Live in Bend, was at a Bend Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on Wednesday at Bend Radio Group. The coowner of the online streaming business was one of nearly 200 attendees at the free networking function. His goal was to meet people and hopefully open doors for his new business. “In a community like Bend, we have to work together, especially in the current economy, so we don’t have to go it alone,” Burgtorf said.

CHICAGO — Ashley Galliart wasn’t planning on making so many cupcakes. A year ago, she opened Luscious Layers Bakery in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood as a wedding cake specialist, with additional treats, including cupcakes, for sale in her shop’s front case. Then the reviews started trickling in on Yelp, the Web site where users rate local businesses. Positive buzz drove customers to the store, many of them in search of cupcakes. “Yelp views us very much as a cupcake bakery,” Galliart said. “We’ve ended up tweaking what we have available on a daily basis to accommodate what people expect. Now we make more cupcakes.” There was a time when a business owner monitored satisfaction mainly by talking to customers. Online review communities started to change that dynamic between consumers and businesses. Now, a spate of lawsuits is putting the spotlight on the complicated relationship between businesses and the review sites. Some business owners, like Galliart, have learned to adapt quickly and find success. Others chafe against what they see as unfair treatment by online review sites with outsized influence.

Power lines head for water, aiming to avoid opposition Clear-cutting, towers for land-based lines have sparked the ire of environmentalists

er plants that burn natural gas are about to be retired because a new transmission company has succeeded in running a line 33 miles across San Francisco Bay. Stern said his company’s Neptune Cable, which runs from Sayreville, N.J., to Levittown, N.Y., on Long Island, now carries 22 percent of Long Island’s electricity. His company is trying to complete a deal for a cable that would run from Ridgefield, N.J., to a Consolidated Edison substation in New York City.

By Matthew L. Wald New York Times News Service

Generating 20 percent of America’s electricity with wind, as recent studies proposed, would require building up to 22,000 miles of new high-voltage transmission lines. But the huge towers and unsightly tree-cutting that these projects require have provoked intense public opposition. Recently, though, some companies are finding a remarkably simple answer to that political problem. They are putting power lines under water, in a string of projects that has so far provoked only token opposition from environmentalists and virtually no reaction from the larger public. “The fish don’t vote,” said Edward Stern, president of PowerBridge, a company that built a 65-mile offshore cable from New Jersey to Long Island and is working on two more. The projects have even drawn cautious enthusiasm from some environmental groups, who say the new power lines serve their goal of getting the United States to use more renewable power. “Environmentalists need to be open-minded to technology improvements, and looking at the big picture,” said Phillip Musegaas, program director for Riverkeeper, a New York environmental group focused on the Hudson River.

The next big test Musegaas’ open-mindedness will soon be put to the test, because Transmission Developers, a Toronto company, is proposing to use the Hudson for the most ambitious underwater transmission project yet. Beginning north of the Canadian border, a 370-mile line would run along the bottom of Lake Champlain, then down the bed of the Hudson all the way to New York City. It would continue under Long Island Sound to Connecticut. The project sponsors have only recently begun seeking the numerous permits they need, but if built, it would be one of the longest submarine power cables in the world. It would bring renewable power generated at

The underwater lines have made it possible to retire older power plants that burn natural gas. dams in Canada into the powerthirsty New York City market. It would also break a stalemate; New York has not had a major new overhead power line in 20 years. If Transmission Developers succeeds with such an ambitious project, other transmission developers are likely to study the underwater strategy to figure out just how far they can take it. Would power lines crossing the Great Lakes make sense? Could underwater cables be used to move renewable power from the windy Great Plains to cities like Chicago? The cost of putting a cable under water can be lower than burying cables on land, because workers can lay the cables from giant reels, allowing stretches of more than a mile with no splices. The strategy is limited, of course, by the availability of rivers and lakes — they do not go everyALWAYS STIRRING UP SOMETHING GOOD

where power developers would like to run new lines. In fact, many of the country’s rivers run north or south, whereas much of the country’s power must move east or west. And underwater lines are still more expensive than lines on transmission towers. Stern’s 65mile cable cost about $600 million, and a 53-mile cable under San Francisco Bay cost about $505 million. Much of the cost in each case is to transform the electricity to direct current, a form that is easier to use in buried cables. Standard lines hung on towers run from $1 million to $4 million a mile, depending on terrain and other factors. If more underwater lines are built, the higher costs would have a small impact on electric bills. Still, the underwater approach has the potential to solve some intractable problems. In San Francisco, for example, old pow-

Those two cables were not motivated primarily by environmental goals — they are meant to connect cheap generation to areas where power prices are high. Stern’s company, PowerBridge, is now considering two renewable energy projects, however. One cable would connect proposed wind farms on the Hawaiian islands of Molokai and Lanai to the urban center on Oahu, and another would bring wind power from Maine along the Atlantic coast to Boston. Laying submarine cables can present some environmental problems, like stirring up industrial chemicals resting on the bottoms of lakes or rivers. The Champlain-Hudson cable would detour down a railroad right-of-way to avoid one particularly polluted stretch of the Hudson. And the cables must avoid spawning areas for some species of fish. The New Jersey chapter of the Sierra Club opposed the cable that would cross the Hudson from northern New Jersey because, among other reasons, the club thought it would stimulate construction of traditional transmission lines farther west, to bring in power to make up for what was being exported to New York. And it does not like power from dams in Canada. “Frankly, my dear, I don’t want a dam,” said David Tittel, the chapter’s director. But the opposition was unsuccessful. In some cases, power developers are trying to enlist support from environmental groups in the early stages of their underwater projects.

Yelp Continued from G1 The leader in the space is San Francisco-based Yelp, which has drawn 30 million unique visitors in the last month and has more than 10 million reviews to date. In the past month, three class-action lawsuits have been filed alleging that Yelp representatives offered to remove or modify placement of negative reviews in exchange for advertising dollars. This comes a year after dozens of businesses voiced similar allegations in articles published in several newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune. Yelp denied all allegations and stepped up outreach efforts to business owners, holding Webinars and meetings to explain how the site works and how they can publicly respond to reviews.

Know what you’re reading The burden to find the middle ground in a morass of reviews and responses often falls on readers. “The utopian ideal is that everyone would want to review every experience, and you’d have a perfect cross-section of user experience,” said Bill Tancer, general manager of global research at Hitwise and author of “Click: What Millions of People Do Online and Why it Matters.”

Projects Continued from G1 The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and the city of Redmond seek funding for a proposed transit maintenance and fleet operations center for Cascades East Transit. Madras has requested money to pay for lighting on runways and taxiways and a weather system. And the Prineville railroad would like funding to finish its freight depot and build a separate truck-train center north of Redmond. Those and all other projects statewide must survive several more committee reviews before the Oregon Transportation Commission decides in August which projects will receive funding. And other criteria will come into play. A portion of the money has been set aside for airports, and the law requires each of the state’s five transportation regions to receive at least 10 percent of the funding. Plus, the state plans an additional round of funding for rural airports — those that serve a city or metropolitan area with fewer than 500,000 people. Below is a summary of the projects proposed in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties culled from the applications filed with the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Bend heliport The city of Bend and Leading Edge Aviation seek $3.59 million to create a heliport that would create an estimated 16 permanent jobs paying $48,800 a year, on average. A heliport would accommodate the increased demand for pilot training and provide a helicopter repair and maintenance site for Central and Eastern Oregon, where none presently exists. Leading Edge, in conjunction with Central Oregon Community College, conducts pilot training at Bend Airport and expects enrollment to increase as veterans take advantage of the newest GI Bill. Bend Airport experiences considerable conflict between helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft, but the heliport would allow helicopters to use the south side of the airport, creating a buffer with airplane traffic. The base could serve helicopters used by law enforcement or other public safety agencies in disaster relief, provide a refueling stop for military, firefighting and medical aircraft or act as a way point for those flying helicopters in the region to repair power lines, survey wildlife or fight fires.

COIC/Redmond transit center The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and city of Redmond seek $2.6 million to build an 11,000-square-foot maintenance building to serve Cascades East Transit’s fleet of buses. The facility would create three permanent jobs that pay $48,533 a year, on average. COIC has operated Cascades East’s Dial-A-Ride service since

Ashley Galliart, right, owner of Luscious Layers, and Bridget Bledsoe decorate a baby shower cake earlier this month. Reviews of their bakery, which specializes in wedding cakes, on Yelp have driven customers to the store, many of them in search of cupcakes. “Yelp views us very much as a cupcake bakery,” Galliart says. What ends up happening, Tancer said, is that most reviews come from those who are “either very upset or very pleased.” His research shows that only about 1 percent of consumers are generating online content. An additional 9 percent are interacting through a medium like comments, while the remaining 90 percent “are just reaping the benefits and are passive viewers.” Review sites have tried to narrow this gap between participants and lurkers.

Connect Oregon III Last year, the Legislature agreed to spend $100 million in lottery backed bonds for air, marine, rail and public transit projects. The 2009 program, known as Connect Oregon III, follows similar programs approved by the Legislature in 2005 and 2007. Four of the applications come from Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties. All survived the first round, according to results posted Wednesday, but all projects will be reviewed several more times by various committees before the state Transportation Commission decides in August which will get funding. The law requires each of the state’s five transportation regions to get at least 10 percent of the money, so projects will be funded across Oregon. January 2008. The transit service serves seven cities in all three Central Oregon counties and links with Bend Area Transit and Central Oregon Breeze, for those who want to use public transportation to reach points outside the region. Cascades East ridership has exploded. The service provided 96,375 rides in the fiscal year that ended June 30, an increase of 145 percent, and it plans to add service this year to Warm Springs. Cascades East’s fleet has grown from nine buses to 23, with another four vehicles expected by July. Currently, its employees who run operations and the call center for booking rides share space with others at the council’s Redmond offices. Mechanics work on the vehicles at the Redmond Public Works yard, across town. But they lack a vehicle lift, proper repair bays and other equipment. And workers must park the fleet at a third location. The new building would be constructed on a 10-acre site formerly occupied by 84 Lumber. It’s also the new location for Redmond’s Public Works Department. In addition to city vehicles, Cascades East will share space with two other agencies that provide transportation services, the Central Oregon Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels and the Opportunity Foundation of Central Oregon. The city owns the property, designs for the transit center are 90 percent complete and construction could be completed in 12 months.

Madras Airport The city of Madras seeks about $1.7 million to increase lighting, add an automated weather system and expand the apron — all at Madras Airport. The project would create 12 permanent jobs paying $49,000 a year, on average. State funding would allow the airport to make improvements that would complement its new heavy aircraft and engine maintenance facility, which was partially funded by a similar state program passed in 2007.

“Metromix uses various social media tools — Twitter and Facebook being the most popular — to engage our readers, and hopefully attract new users and commenters to the site,” said Matt McGuire, editor of Metromix, owned by Tribune Co., publisher of the Chicago Tribune. “And we regularly feature our readers’ comments in stories, both in our daily RedEye print section and on Metromix.com.” As the sites grow, one of their primary challenges is making

With that money, Madras joined with Butler Aircraft to build a 39,000-square-foot hangar that provides space to repair and maintain a variety of planes and allowed Butler to expand its business. The company plans to move its corporate headquarters from the Redmond Airport to Madras Airport. New lighting for the ramp and taxiway will help guide planes at night, and installation of runway lighting will help pilots clearly see the landing strip, especially in low visibility. An automated weather system would also increase safety and improve access to the airport by allowing air ambulance, air taxis or U.S. Forest Service firefighting planes to make an instrument approach when the weather is marginal. It would also allow the Federal Aviation Administration to lower the altitude a pilot can descend to when making an instrument approach, which gives the pilot more of a chance to see the runway. Expanding the apron will give airplanes more room to maneuver and increase parking, allowing business at the airport and the nearby industrial park to expand.

sure authenticity remains intact. Yelp uses an automated filter to identify spam-like patterns and suppress suspicious posts. This algorithm has caused some angst among business owners, Yelp has said, because when merchants ask friends and family to submit reviews, the stream of glowing posts can sometimes trigger the filter and keep those reviews from appearing. This in turn raises owners’ suspicions. Yelp spokeswoman Stephanie Ichinose described the filter as “an ongoing cat-and-mouse game that we’re tweaking and fine-tuning on a regular basis because you get those instances where people are trying to figure out how to work around it.” “We recognize that it’s not perfect and that we will have some (legitimate) reviews we lose along the way, but we believe it’s in the best interest of consumers over the long run,” Ichinose said. The review sites also say veteran members tend to be protective of their communities’ culture and are effective in policing for “trolls” — those who write inflammatory posts for sport — and those wielding personal agendas. “It’s a double-edged sword,” said Colleen Curtis, who oversees Yelp’s communities in the Midwest. “The more people you have, the more turmoil can occur ... but (you have) more who are moderating or diffusing (volatile situations).”

lington Northern-Santa Fe and Union Pacific. At Bend Airport, airport manager Gary Judd remains optimistic. Losing Cessna, and possibly Epic, has been disappointing, but the aviation industry has nowhere to go but up especially as those with rising incomes who live in fast-developing countries like China and India gain an interest in aviation. When activity in the aviation sector increases, Bend will have an advantage over other communities. It has manufacturing facilities available. “We’re way beyond shovelready,” Judd said. “All you’ve got to do is turn on the light, walk in and go to work.”

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 28, 2010 G3 At Chicago food and dining site LTH Forum, fishy posts are pretty easy to spot, said co-founder and moderator Gary Wiviott. “Some of the telltale signs are a first-time poster who is particularly exuberant about the place and has a lot of details like the name of the proprietor, the specials and the whole background of the place,” Wiviott said. “These are people with a lot more information than the casual patron.” The site requires posters to disclose any personal or professional connections to a restaurant and doesn’t allow posts on health code violations or closures unless it’s substantiated with a link to a news story or official announcement.

Weighted reviews Another way review sites can maintain order is by giving weight to other voices besides users. Citysearch, for example, balances community-generated reviews with editorial content and information provided by business owners. “The interaction between the merchant, the user and the expert very quickly gives consumers the most educated point of view around making a decision about where to eat or where to shop,” said Kara Nortman, senior vice president of publishing at Citysearch. Citysearch recently added a feature where users can review

a business via their Twitter accounts, hoping this integration will attract more members. “You do have some people who just enjoy contributing to the community and do it prolifically and for all the right reasons,” Nortman said. “That’s always going to be a small percentage of the community. Then you have people who either have a wonderful experience or a terrible experience that drives them to contribute feedback. Then you have this whole swath of middle. We’ve tried to capture that swath of middle.” Even if the lurkers don’t become commenters, they remain customers. And this means local businesses have to be aware of their online reputation. Joncarl Lachman, chef and owner of HB Home Bistro in Chicago, said he realized he couldn’t ignore online reviews after so many customers attributed their visit to the restaurant after reading posts on Yelp or other sites. Lachman has used negative reviews to his advantage. For instance, online comments helped him decide that the restaurant’s cupcake flight and brunch service, carryovers from previous owners, were no longer working. Later this year, the chef will relaunch brunch service, “but more in our own style.” In the end, Lachman has decided, “Yelp is a way to hear what people are saying about you when they are just being honest.”

Prineville rail depot and Redmond rail center The City of Prineville Railway seeks $2.12 million to complete the Prineville Freight Depot, which is located west of the city, and add facilities at Prineville Junction, which is located north of Redmond near O’Neil Highway. The project would create 40 jobs paying $36,400 a year, on average. At the freight depot, a type of full-service site for storing and transferring loads, the railroad wants to restore two warehouses, pave the site, pipe the portion of an irrigation canal that runs through the depot, and excavate, fill and prep 10 acres. Prineville Junction, located near U.S. Highway 97 and the main rail line, would serve as an ideal spot for a facility to serve bulk rail and as a site allowing direct transfer of goods from train to truck. State money would allow the Prineville railroad to prep the land, which it owns, and construct switches, along with two 1,000-foot rail spurs, parking, storage for bulk products and extend a siding for rail car storage. The combined freight depot and bulk facility near Redmond would serve not only Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties, but parts of Eastern Oregon, as well. It would ensure the region has access to rail service into the future. Increasingly, large railroads have eliminated stops at smaller communities along their main lines to pick up one or two freight cars, effectively cutting off freight-rail service to those towns. But those communities that can pull together multiple rail shipments, creating a trainsize length of rail cars and giving the big railroads financial incentive to stop, ensure their future, and the City of Prineville Railway has access to Bur-

Rush is on to be first in designing iPad apps

Networking Continued from G1 The Bend Chamber of Commerce hosts Ribbon Cuttings, Business After Hours and Young Professionals Network events to promote networking. Other chambers around Central Oregon also host networking events, such as the Redmond Chamber of Commerce’s Coffee Clatters held every Friday morning. “Often when you are networking, people are going to remember you because they can put a face with a name, so you can get referrals for your business that way,” said Courtney Linville, head of Bend Chamber of Commerce’s government affairs and public relations.

It can be difficult to write software for a gadget without being able to touch it. But that has not stopped developers from rushing to create applications for the Apple iPad. For small startups and big Internet and media companies alike, the iPad, and tablet computers in general, beckon as the next wide open technology frontier. For many of them, getting apps onto the iPad will be a challenge, at least at first. Apple has provided only a few companies with iPads on which to design and test their software before the device’s release on April 3. The rest have had to make do with software running on a Mac that mimics the iPad, a disadvantage when dealing with a device that Apple is pitching as a new way of interacting with media. The few companies that did receive the device — including Major League Baseball, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times — have been subject to Apple’s long list of rules. The companies must agree to keep the iPad hidden from public view, chained to tables in windowless rooms. This although the basic look of the iPad stopped being a secret in January. And Apple has told all other developers who have downloaded its iPad programming tools to remain silent about their apps until later this month. Apple’s addiction to secrecy does not seem to have damped enthusiasm among developers. “There’s something about the newness of the iPad that’s driving an even greater level of excitement than what existed in the last year for the iPhone,” said Raven Zachary, president of Small Society, an iPhone software company in Portland, Ore. Zachary has organized work-

Relationships to grow on Networking is a way to build relationships, according to Roxie Supplee, membership director for LeTip of Bend. The local chapter is part of LeTip International. Twenty-two members of the Bend chapter meet once a week with the purpose of referring one another to people they meet in their professional and personal lives. The organization is based on categories, so only one person in each industry is allowed to join, which reduces competition. “You want to use the people that your friends and neighbors use and trust, and then there is already that built-in trust when you are referring someone,” Supplee said. It is a trust that can’t be replaced by looking at someone’s Web site or Twitter profile, she added. Supplee, an escrow officer at AmeriTitle, has witnessed an increase in business since joining the organization. Business growth, for many, is the main purpose of networking. Many networking groups also have a special focus other than just promoting business. Green Drinks, locally hosted by the Environmental Center, meets once a month at businesses that belong to the organization’s Green Spot directory. Community members network and learn how to incorporate sustainable ideas into their lives and businesses, according to Nikki Roemmer, sustainability advocate for the Environmental Center. It has led to employment opportunities for past attendants and also promotes business. “We believe a sustainable economy is possible if people choose to spend their dollars locally with businesses that consider their impact on the environment,” Roemmer said. At the Network of Entrepreneurial Women monthly meetings, members who received business through the organization since the last meeting are asked to stand up. Usually more than half of the attendees stand, according to Heather Hepburn, president of the nonprofit organization. Now at 131 active members, about 90 people attend regular meetings. Many members are in industries that require face time to build relationships, such as in the health care profession, according to Hepburn. Creating relationships through networking is something that takes time and is founded on trust, especially for women, Hepburn said. The organization helps build business and personal relationships. “People join for different reasons,” Hepburn said. “One of the biggest ones is to network and grow their contacts and marketing for their business. Another significant reason why people join and continue to stay members is because it’s a great group

The Panelfly app is for reading comic books on the iPad. Getting apps onto the iPad has been challenging so far for many developers because few of them have been provided iPads on which to design and test their software. shops for iPhone developers and plans to do the same for the iPad. “People see this as an opportunity to do things that have not been done before and get that first mover’s advantage,” he said. Some companies are even opening up and talking about their iPad plans, risking Apple’s reprisal. Sure, they are salivating at the prospect of the iPad’s 9.7-inch screen and fast processor — but also at the demonstrated willingness of Apple customers to pay a few dollars to get apps onto their devices. Amazon.com and Barnes &

Noble are working on apps for buying and reading electronic books, even though both companies sell their own e-reading devices and Apple will offer its own iBooks app. The expectation is that the iPad will give a big lift to the e-book market, benefiting the whole industry. Neither company was given an iPad for testing. “We have actually developed a tablet-based interface that redesigns the core screen and the reading experience,” said Ian Freed, vice president for Kindle at Amazon. “Our team had some fun with it.”

Jobs Continued from G1 Kahan, who is 14 and lives in the New York City area, had complained about a problem with an Apple keyboard. “Software fix coming soon,” Jobs’ reply said. “Sorry for the bug.” While Jobs was known to occasionally answer e-mail messages sent to his widely published address before he went on medical leave last year, he now appears to have not only resumed the practice, but picked up the pace. Apple blogs are counting approximately a dozen such messages in the last few weeks — and those are only the ones that were publicly shared. Jobs did not respond to an inquiry about his e-mail habits that was sent to him directly, and Apple would not comment. But every indication is that the messages are being sent by Jobs himself, and they are resonating throughout the universe of Apple fans to an almost absurd degree. John Devor printed out his personal Jobsian missive and taped it to the wall of his dorm room at the University of Virginia. The 23-year-old entrepreneur had written Jobs to praise

A framegrab taken from a YouTube video blog shows an excited Devir Kahan as he talks about the e-mail response he claims he received from Steve Jobs. Kahan had written to Jobs about an issue he had with the new Apple Magic Mouse. Jobs wrote back to say, “Software fix coming soon. Sorry for the bug. Steve.” him, but also to complain about how Apple’s lawyers were demanding that he change the name of his music-copying program, iPodRip. “Change your apps name. Not that big of a deal. Steve,” Jobs wrote. “I was stunned. I think I was shaking,” Devor recalled of the moment the e-mail message appeared in his in-box. A few weeks later, he reflected more calmly about the reply. “I kind of pictured him writing that while he was going to the bathroom

or something,” Devor said. Andrea Nepori, a 25-year-old blogger in Italy, got one of the many messages sent this week, after asking Apple’s leader whether the iPad would provide access to free online e-books. “Yep,” Jobs replied. Nepori said he immediately regretted that he had not asked a better question. But he was impressed by the response. “I don’t know that I’ve heard of Steve Ballmer or any other CEOs answering e-mails,” he said. “Maybe nobody writes to them.”

Common ground It’s helpful when networking to find a common interest, Rea said, and to sincerely be involved with a conversation that promotes mutual interest so both parties are invested. Rea also follows up every networking interaction with a personal e-mail. If someone is new to networking, it’s helpful to find a friend who is established in the community and can help with initial introductions, said Cortney Felix, vice president of residential lending at South Valley Bank & Trust. Felix also sends a personal note after networking interactions, which can be a lot of work, but also pays off. “Our business has grown tremendously, and I think a lot of it is attributed to being out in the community and at events like this,” she said.

S D  Cadillac CTS-V: GM’s new attitude, in a fun package

Check gauge accuracy before changing your vehicle’s thermostat

By Warren Brown

By Brad Bergholdt

Special to The Washington Post

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

WASHINGTON — It was an easy decision. I could take a train to New York from Union Station in Washington, or I could drive there from my home in Virginia. I drove. The weather was beautiful throughout the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. The car, the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V sedan, was beyond tempting. After a week of driving it in Virginia, R E V I E W there was no way I would sacrifice a last chance behind its wheel by choosing a train. There were the usual objections from my two-member support team, who’ve become increasingly fussy about my taking long, solo road trips since I’ve crossed into my sixth decade. My wife, Mary Anne, insisted that I go by train. “You’ll only be there for one day,” she said. Ria Manglapus, my associate for vehicle evaluations at The Washington Post, agreed. I appreciated their concern but suspected ulterior motives. Mary Anne, who has a passion for high-performance cars, drove the CTS-V every chance she got. Ria, another muscle-car nut, was deprived of time behind the CTS-V’s wheel because of Mary Anne’s enthusiasm. Leaving the car at home for a day or two before its scheduled pickup would have satisfied them both. I couldn’t do it. I’ve loved Cadillac’s CTS cars since their introduction in 2002 as 2003 models. I had watched their development from concept to prototype to manufacture for retail. I had long believed that they would be the cars that signaled a rebirth of GM’s Cadillac Division and GM itself. GM’s turnaround proved tougher than that. It included ego-bruising bailouts from the federal government and a trip through the purgatory of federal bankruptcy court. But what I believed about the significance of the CTS cars proved correct. They demonstrated a welcome new attitude at GM — a willingness to take risks, to produce a car that generates passion pro and con, and whose overall quality and road performance tops the best the global automobile industry has to offer. Proof of market acceptance was demonstrated by sharply rising CTS sales from 2002 to 2005 and continued strong

Q: A:

The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V, a compact sedan built on GM’s rear-wheel drive Sigma platform, generates passion both pro and con. It offers effortless acceleration, moving from 0 to 60 mph in a bit more than four seconds. But it suffers on fuel economy, so much so that it comes with a $1,300 gas-guzzler tax at purchase.

2010 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Base price: $60,720 As tested: $68,445 Type: The compact, front-engine CTS-V is built on GM’s rear-wheel drive Sigma platform. Other CTS models are offered with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The CTS-V is available as a coupe or sedan. Engine: Supercharged, 16-valve, 6.2-liter V-8 engine that develops 556 hp at 6,100 rpm and 551 ft-lbs of torque at 3,800 rpm. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual. A six-speed automatic that can be shifted manually is available. Mileage: 12 mpg city, 18 mpg highway

sales for the model line during the fuel and financial crises in the latter part of the decade. The CTS automobiles, offered with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, include sedans, coupes, station wagons and this week’s subject model, the high-performance CTS-V. It is, in the truest sense, a driver’s car. But it’s one that caters to passengers as well. Equipped with a standard manual six-speed manual transmission, or with a an optional six-speed automatic that also can be operated manually, it offers effortless acceleration, moving from 0 to 60 mph in a bit more than four seconds. Credit for that goes to its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine (556 horsepower, 551 footpounds of torque). Highway handling beats anything I’ve driven from Asia or Europe. But city handling leaves something to be desired. The CTS-V sedan driven for this column is overweight for a compact car, with a factory weight (minus passengers and cargo) of 4,222 pounds. You

feel that load in slow-moving, congested city traffic. It’s like an obese body moving in thick shoes over a dance floor. But at highway speeds, that clumsiness disappears. What remains is an exceptional grace of movement, accompanied by a baritone exhaust note that is worthy of a symphony hall. Anyone who worries about GM’s longevity has got to drive the Cadillac GTS-V. If the company continues to make cars of quality, including its gas-sipping economy and future electric models, it’s going to be around for a very long time.

Bottom line Customers more interested in miles per gallon than smiles per mile should stay away from this one. The CTS-V comes with a $1,300 gas-guzzler tax at purchase. It gets 12 miles per gallon in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. And it prefers premium “for best performance.” Ride, acceleration, handling:

I’ve loved Cadillac’s CTS cars since their introduction in 2 0 0 2 as 2 0 0 3 models. I had watched their development from concept to prototype to manufacture for retail. I had long believed that they would be the cars that signaled a rebirth of GM’s Cadillac Division and GM itself.

With the recent warmer weather, I’ve noticed my pickup will sometimes run hotter than I think it should. I’m wondering if changing the thermostat to a colder one would help. Let’s assume that the cooling system is full of coolant — a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water is preferred — that it’s leak-free, and that you’re seeing an occasionally high gauge reading. Start by qualifying the temperature gauge readings. A neat way to do this is with a noncontact digital thermometer, also called a temp gun. These are now widely available, and the cheapie ones have dipped below $20. This tool has many applications — you can check brake temperature, air conditioning or heater output, catalytic converter function, your refrigerator or freezer’s settings — there are endless possibilities. You can check true engine coolant temperature by aiming the gun at the engine’s thermostat housing. If you find the truck’s gauge and the gun agree, when at normal and elevated temperature, we’ll go from there. The truck’s thermostat is designed to maintain engine temperature at approximately 195 degrees. At startup, the thermostat is closed, blocking coolant flow through the radiator, encouraging the engine to warm up as quickly as possible. As coolant temperature reaches 195, the thermostat opens and continuously meters flow through the radiator to maintain that temperature. Should conditions cause elevated temperature, the thermostat opens fully, allowing maximum radiator participation. As long as the thermostat is

On the highway, it gets superior marks in all three. Ride remains great in the city. But acceleration becomes a grumbling affair in stop-and-go traffic. And handling becomes clumsy. This car prefers long-distance driving. Safety: Standard equipment includes front and rear ventilated disc brakes, four-wheel antilock brake protection, emergency brake assistance (to more quickly, precisely apply brake pressure in emergency stops), electronic stability and traction control, OnStar emergency communications, front dashboard airbags, front sidemounted airbags and front and rear head airbags.

opening as it should, it plays no role in managing temperature above 200 degrees or so. If there’s any doubt the thermostat is working properly, I’d change it in a heartbeat, with one of the specified rating. Changing to a colder value, such as 180 or 160 degrees, may briefly assist a weak cooling system. But the drawbacks are many. Your engine was designed to run best, produce the fewest emissions and deliver the best fuel economy at 195 degrees. There are many possible causes for occasional elevated temperature: a partially restricted radiator, airflow across the radiator impeded by bugs or debris, an eroded water pump impeller, a collapsing lower radiator hose, or a slipping fan clutch. Radiator efficiency can be checked using the heat gun, comparing upper and lower radiator hose temperature when the thermostat is open and the car is at operating temperature. With adequate airflow across the radiator, you should see a difference of over 20 degrees. If desired, a heavy-duty radiator, with more air passages, can be purchased for less than $200. Replacement could be a satisfying DIY Saturday job — renew all hoses at this time as well. If the temperature drop across the radiator looks OK, but the inlet temperature in the top hose is notably higher than the thermostat rating, the water pump may not be providing adequate coolant circulation.
