Lacking juvenile criminals, cells close
Local veterans could receive mental help via a rare program
Deschutes shuts part of detention facility, lays off 5 By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

By Erin Golden The Bulletin
A court program that would provide treatment services to veterans suffering from mental health issues is in the works for Deschutes County — and if it becomes a reality, the court would be among the first of its kind in the state. The program would be similar to the county’s other speciality court programs, including mental health and family drug courts, which provide treatment for offenders and help for victims — and give the offenders the opportunity to have their charges dropped. County officials and others looking into the idea say they’re still sorting out the details of how a veterans court would operate and where they’d find funding. But they said it’s likely the court would be targeted at veterans with documented mental health issues, who would be directed to counselors and others who specialize in issues like post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Amber Clegg, who coordinates the mental health court program through the Deschutes County Mental Health Department, said the number of veterans in that program has been relatively low. But with more military personnel coming home from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq — including more than 100 local Oregon National Guard soldiers who returned from Baghdad last month — she said officials expect the demand to go up in the next few years.

Juvenile Community Justice Facilities Manager Charles Puch, left, and Deschutes County Community Justice Director Ken Hales stand on the top floor of a vacant cell unit at the juvenile detention center. The empty pod, one of three, was closed to save money and because the number of kids booked into the facility has not increased as expected.
Some people who work with juvenile offenders say Deschutes County is part of a national trend of declining crime rates among youths in recent years. At the county’s juvenile detention center, the number of youths has not increased as expected. Community Justice Director Ken Hales has responded by closing one of three cell blocks, known as “pods,” and laying off
five employees. The average daily number of youths held at the detention center in Bend has declined slightly since 2008. At the same time, the annual number of youths referred to the center on suspicion of crimes that would be misdemeanors or felonies if they were adults dropped by 6.8 percent from 2007 to 2008, down to 1,412 cases, according to the county.

Worried about deploying with family in limbo By Julia Preston New York Times News Service
Lt. Kenneth Tenebro enlisted in the armed forces after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, signing up even before he became an American citizen. He served one tour of duty in Iraq, dodging roadside bombs, and he would like to do another. But throughout that first mission, he harbored a fear he did not share with others in his unit. Tenebro worried that his wife, U.S. Army Wilma, back home in New York Lt. Kenneth with their infant daughter, would Tenebro’s wife be deported. is an illegal Wilma, who like her husband immigrant. was born in the Philippines, is an illegal immigrant. “That was our fear all the time,” Tenebro said. When he called home, “She often cried about it,” he said. “Like, hey, what’s going to happen? Where will I leave our daughter?” See Immigration / A6

A fisherman trolls past floating ice Thursday on Paulina Lake. Paulina Lake Lodge co-owner Karen Brown said that this weekend will be the first weekend of business at the lodge’s restaurant since the seasonal opening May 1. Right now, road access goes only as far as the lodge.
Road plowing progress
Crews are making progress at most local higher-altitude highways. 1 McKenzie Highway: The Oregon Department of Transportation has begun plowing state Highway 242 from the west side of the pass. Bikers are welcome on the highway, but are cautioned to be aware of plowing operations. Depending on conditions, the highway should be open to motorists by early to mid-June. 2 Cascade Lakes Highway: Plowing continues, with access open from the south until the cutoff at Lava Lakes. Officials expect the highway to be open to traffic in time for Memorial Day weekend. 3 Newberry National Volcanic Monument: Road access into Newberry Crater goes as far as Paulina Lake Lodge. Lava River Cave and Lava Butte opened to visitors Wednesday. 4 Crater Lake (not shown): Crews are clearing the rim drive, and access from the south entrance is open, as is the Steel Visitor Center. Officials expect it will be mid-June before the north entrance is open.

Cult classic? Hang on while the Internet does its thing By Christy Lemire The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — It’s late Friday night outside the arthouse Roxie Theater, and a line is forming down the block. Twentysomethings — mostly men — stand around joking and waiting to file in. The smell of pot permeates the cold, damp air.
Underneath the theater’s marquee, a fast-talking Vietnamese man in a suit and tie dashes around with a camera crew in tow, hastily laying a makeshift red carpet on the sidewalk and directing people to stand, pose, smile. He is James Nguyen, a writer and director, and his movie, “Birdemic:
Shock and Terror,” is about to make its San Francisco premiere. A former Silicon Valley software salesman with no film-school education, Nguyen made this homage to his idol, Alfred Hitchcock, for about $10,000. He set and shot his killer-bird saga in nearby Half Moon Bay and Santa Clara, and after showing it to sold-
out crowds across the country, this is his homecoming. Lots of people make bad horror movies. Yet “Birdemic” has become an instant cult classic, one of several such movies that have gained popularity online and through social networking sites. See Movies / A7

Bombing suspect followed all the rules for citizenship By Nina Bernstein
of a screening apparatus increasingly burdened with national security expectations. Immigration lawyers in Connecticut said Shahzad followed a typical trajectory, though his path seemed more smooth than many others, especially men from Muslim countries, who can be stuck in security checks for years.
New York Times News Service
When Faisal Shahzad took his oath of citizenship a year ago, swearing to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies,” he seemed the model of a legal immigrant success story. Moving from one coveted visa to the next over a decade, he had acquired an MBA, a decent job, a wife and two children and a fine suburban home. Now that he has admitted driving a car bomb into Times Square, every step of his path to citizenship is under fresh scrutiny. One key question is when Shahzad turned against his adopted country. The answer could determine whether the unraveling of his immigrant success story ends with the revocation of his American citizenship. The typical grounds for denaturalization, immigration officials say, are fraud or misrepresentation in the reams of immigration forms that Shahzad filled out over the years, including accounting for every trip he made outside the country. But even if he never lied in his applications, an obscure anti-Communist statute enacted half a century ago could be used to revoke his citizenship, said Donald Kerwin, a vice president at the nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute, a research organization in Washington.
Citizenship law The law states that within five years of naturalization, any affiliation that would have precluded citizenship — like membership in a terrorist organization — is prima facie evidence that the person “was not attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States and was not well disposed to the good order and happiness of the United States at the time of naturalization.” In the absence of countervailing evidence, the statute says, that affiliation is enough to authorize revocation. “It doesn’t happen very often, but you’re obviously not attached to the principles of the Constitution if you’re being trained in bomb-making in Waziristan when you take the oath,” Kerwin said. The narrative that has emerged suggests that after signs of financial stress and a turn to religion within the past year or two, Shahzad quit his job and flew to Pakistan. Law enforcement officials say he has admitted to training with terrorists there in December or January. Kerwin said that such a sequence provides the prima facie evidence described in the statute,

Investigators focus on finances, seek possible money courier NEW YORK — Investigators of the failed car bombing in Times Square are looking for a money courier they say helped funnel cash from overseas to finance a Pakistani-American’s preparations to blow up the crude gasoline-and-propane bomb in the heart of New York, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Investigators have the name of the courier they believe helped Faisal Shahzad pay for the used SUV and other materials to rig up a car bomb that would have caused a huge fireball in Times Square if it had gone off, the official told the AP. The official didn’t know how much money may have changed hands. The official spoke on condi-
but that it is unclear whether the federal government would bother with revocation if Shahzad was headed for a long prison sentence anyway. The Department of Justice declined to discuss the matter. In Washington, the more
tion of anonymity Thursday because of the sensitivity of the investigation. U.S. law enforcement officials traveled to Pakistan — where Shahzad spent five months before returning to the U.S. in February — to question four alleged members of an al-Qaida-linked militant group. Officials are trying to establish whether Shahzad had connections to foreign terrorist groups that either funded or helped in the botched bombing that shut down Times Square. Gen. David Petraeus told The Associated Press on Friday that Shahzad was apparently a “lone wolf” who was inspired by militants in Pakistan but didn’t have direct contact with them. — The Associated Press
pressing question seems to be how he became a citizen in the first place. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, has demanded to see Shahzad’s full immigration file. Experts on both sides of the nation’s immigration debate said the case points to the limitations
Abandoned cooler, bag cause a bomb scare in Times Square By Verena Dobnik and Colleen Long The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Police cleared streets around Times Square on Friday and called in the bomb squad after finding a cooler and a shopping bag left on a sidewalk about a block from where a failed car bomb was found over the weekend. They opened streets to traffic after finding out the cooler contained only water bottles. A nearby shopping bag left in a flower pot held books and a gift wrapped in pink tissue paper. Police had earlier cordoned off a pedestrian mall and nearby streets with yellow tape around 1:15 p.m., while yelling “Get back, get back” at onlookers and guiding bombsniffing dogs through the area. The bomb squad X-rayed the soft-sided green cooler found on the pedestrian mall to determine, “in an abundance of caution,” whether it posed a threat, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. Six NYPD officers opened the cooler, took out the contents and carried it off about an hour later, when the department said there was no threat. In responding, they noticed the second bag, in the
flower pot, which turned out to be full of books. “It was exciting, but it seemed a little silly, after all — a cooler that somebody left there,” said psychiatrist Thor Bergersen, of Newton, Mass., who watched the drama from the eighth floor of the Marriott Marquis hotel. The department has had a 30 percent uptick in the number of suspicious package reports since the failed bombing in Times Square. “This is something that happens fairly regularly,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Friday. “When you have a major event, the reports of suspicious packages
Shahzad’s name had long been listed in the Treasury Enforcement Communication System, known as TECS, which helps the federal government track potential law violators entering the country, an administration official said. He probably landed on the huge list because he entered the country on several occasions carrying large amounts of cash, declaring the totals on his customs entry forms as required. But for a Pakistani-American who traveled frequently between the two countries, that was neither unusual nor necessarily an indication of any illicit activity, added the official, who would discuss the confidential records only on condition of anonymity. He arrived at the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut in January 1999 on a foreign student visa approved by the State Department in Pakistan. It allowed for a year of job training after graduation, and a temp agency placed him at Elizabeth Arden, the cosmetics company. Because he performed well as an account analyst there, a former manager said, the company applied to the Labor Department for one of the limited number of three-year H-1B visas available for foreigners with special skills. Critics of the H-1B visa system, like Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, say it is a source of cheap, captive labor, fed by mediocre schools. “All we’re hearing is that these visas are for the best and brightest,” said Krikorian, whose Washington-based group advocates sharp reductions in immigration. “This guy, both from his grades and his incompetent bomb-making skills, wasn’t the best and brightest of anything.” But lawyers who handle such cases said Shahzad probably had skills that were in short supply at the time, because the H-1B visa process is expensive and difficult for employers to pursue. “You can’t expect people to dump thousands of dollars in the schooling system and then not have a chance to work here,” noted one lawyer, Nandita Ruchandani.
Obama pressed to join land mine embargo By Mark Landler New York Times News Service
The Obama administration, under intense political pressure from Capitol Hill and elsewhere, is engaged in a vigorous debate over whether to reverse course and join an international treaty banning land mines, administration officials said this week. In re-examining the issue, the administration is stepping back into the glare of a perennial cause that has captured the attention of world leaders, royalty and celebrities. It is also inviting another internal debate that pits the Pentagon against other parts of the administration. The policy review, which officials expect to be completed this summer, could result in the United States pledging to abide by the treaty’s provisions even if it does not join it. That would be a striking disavowal of its announcement last fall that it would stick to the Bush administration’s refusal to join the agreement, known as the Ottawa Treaty. It also would mollify critics, chiefly Sen. Patrick Leahy, DVt., who called the earlier decision a “default of U.S. leadership and a detour from the clear path of history.” Leahy, who expressed his dismay to President Barack Obama, said Friday that he was glad the issue was getting “the kind of attention it should have been getting then.” The military has long opposed signing the land mine treaty, arguing that it would put the lives of American soldiers at risk by depriving them of a deterrent weapon. There are still nearly a million mines in the demilitarized zone on the Korean peninsula, shielding American troops from a marauding North Korean army. But some of the administration’s leading liberal insiders, such as Harold Koh, the State Department’s legal adviser, are pushing for the United States to join the ban. And even some Pentagon officials are said to favor a change.

will go up. I think to a certain extent, people are becoming more suspicious, more vigilant, and that results in more calls.” Times Square vendor Walter “Candyman” Wells was among those feeling suspicious. Sitting on a stool near his table of T-shirts, he looked out Friday onto the street, already back to its usual bustle after the scare. “I think they’re testing us, whoever is doing this. They’re testing our tolerance for putting up with this chaos.” “They’re playing chess with us right now, but they ain’t gonna win,” the Vietnam veteran said. “’Cause we’re the Bobby Fischers.”

A crane lowers a containment device Friday at the site of Deepwater Horizon oil spill containment efforts in the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Louisiana. The 40-foottall device was guided into place by underwater robots. Now workers must wait at least 12 hours for the device to settle before attempting to use it to funnel the leaking oil up to a tanker on the surface. So far, though, “It appears to be going exactly as we hoped,” a BP spokesman said.
Chicken quip scrambles the race for Reid’s seat By Michael R. Blood and Sandra Chereb The Associated Press
CARSON CITY, Nev. — Right wing, left wing, chicken wing. Suddenly Nevada politics is all about chickens — bad news for the Republican Senate front-runner but a ray of hope for struggling Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. Sue Lowden recently suggested bartering with doctors for medical care — “our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor.” The line from the millionaire casino executive and former beauty queen immediately became a late-night joke and YouTube sensation, and upended a GOP race that had been hers to lose. Democrats set up a website, “Chickens for Checkups,” and dispatched a volunteer in a chicken suit to one of her fundraisers. GOP rival Danny Tarkanian circulated a video of her comments and asked if she were the best candidate to take on Reid. Early voting begins May 22 for the June 8 primary and the inevitability that was building around Lowden’s candidacy has eroded as others in the field of 12 Republicans sense an opening. And somewhere Reid is cackling. The Senate majority leader is considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents, struggling with low approval ratings in a state that’s reeling economically from an unemployment rate of 13.4 percent — well above the national average — and the highest home foreclosure rate in the nation. Infighting among Republicans and the possibility that Lowden could emerge from the crowded primary as a scuffedup winner would be a blessing for Reid. “If the November race is about Harry Reid, Republicans win. If it’s not about Harry Reid, it’s a flip of the coin,” said Ryan Erwin, senior adviser to John Chachas, a Wall Street banker who returned to his native state to enter the Republican race. In discussing health care, Lowden said, “I’m telling you that this works. You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor, they would say, ‘I’ll paint your house.’ ... Doctors are very sympathetic people. I’m not backing down from that system.” In a new TV ad, Lowden says her remarks were taken out of context. As photos of Reid and Tarkanian appear behind her, she says, “They want to make this about chickens. That’s what’s wrong with Washington: lies and dirty tricks.”
Vampire saga inspires more baby names The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Mom and Dad may be looking to popular vampire books and the first family for baby names: Cullen is on the rise for boys and Malia for girls. But Miley and Jonas are down, proving that acclaim can be fleeting. Isabella is now the top baby name for girls, Jacob for boys, the Social Security Administration said Friday. Isabella’s climb to the top in 2009 ends Emma’s one-year reign. Jacob is on an 11year run at the top. Barack still didn’t crack the top 1,000 for boys, but a version of the president’s daughter’s name, Malia, was the fastest riser for girls. Maliyah moved up 342 spots, to No. 296, while Malia, which is how Obama’s daughter spells it, came in at No. 192, rising 153 spots. Many of the top names — and the fastest risers — match the popular “Twilight” series of books and movies about teen romance and vampires. Edward Cullen is one of the lead characters. Edward moved up 11 spots, to No. 137 on the list, and Cullen was the biggest riser among boys’ names, up 297 spots to No. 485.

Box to contain oil reaches Gulf floor By Harry R. Weber The Associated Press
ON THE GULF OF MEXICO — A BP-chartered vessel lowered a 100-ton concrete-and-steel vault onto a ruptured well in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday, an important step in a delicate and unprecedented attempt to stop most of the gushing crude fouling the sea. Underwater robots guided the 40-foot-tall box into place. Now that the contraption is on the seafloor, workers will need at least 12 hours to let it settle and make sure it’s stable before the robots can hook up a pipe and hose that will funnel the oil up to a tanker. “It appears to be going exactly as we hoped,” BP spokesman Bill Salvin told The Associated Press on Friday afternoon, shortly after the four-story device hit the seafloor. “Still lots of challenges ahead, but this is very good progress.” By Sunday, the box the size of a house could be capturing up to 85 percent of the oil. So far, about 3 million gallons have leaked in an environmental crisis that has been unfolding since a deepwater drilling platform exploded April 20, sending toxic oil toward a shoreline of marshes, shipping channels, fishing grounds and beaches. Eleven workers were killed in the accident. The lowering of the containment device was a slow-moving drama playing out 50 miles from Louisiana’s coast, requiring great precision and attention to detail. It took about two weeks to build the 40-foot box, and the effort to lower it by crane and cable to the seafloor began late Thursday night. After it hit bottom Friday afternoon, the crane gradually eased off to allow it to settle. “We are essentially taking a four-story building and lowering it 5,000 feet and setting it on the head of a pin,” Salvin said. The task became increasingly urgent as toxic oil crept deeper into the bays and marshes of the Mississippi Delta. A sheen of oil began arriving on land last week, and crews have been putting out floating barriers, spraying chemical dispersants and setting fire to the
Handling of spill shocks former Exxon Valdez cleanup official GULFPORT, Miss. — Gulfport resident Wilton Marble said he’s shocked at how BP and government officials are handling the oil-spill cleanup off the Gulf of Mexico. Marble knows about cleaning up oil spills. He worked as a safety director for the Exxon Valdez cleanup in 1989. “It’s shocking to me the rate that BP is progressing,” he said. Marble said he’d worked for Exxon many years as a drill and rig supervisor before becoming a safety director for the oil company. When crude oil started spilling into Prince William Sound off the coast of Alaska, he remembers Exxon’s response to be quick and efficient. Although he doesn’t know exactly what BP has planned for the Gulf of Mexico, what he hears on the news concerns him. Initially, most of what he saw on the news was a call for volunteers. Marble said he has nothing
slick to try to keep it from coming ashore. But now the thicker, stickier goo — arrayed in vivid, brick-colored ribbons — is drawing ever closer to Louisiana’s coastal communities. There are still untold risks and unknowns with the containment box: The approach has never been tried at such depths, where the water pressure is enough to crush a submarine, and any wrong move could damage the leaking pipe and make the problem worse. The seafloor is pitch black and the water murky, though lights on the robots illuminate the area where they are working. If the box works, another one will be dropped onto a second, smaller leak at the bottom of the Gulf. At the same time, crews are drilling sideways into the well in
against the volunteer effort, but wants those involved to be properly prepared for the dangers they face if they don’t have the proper equipment or training. Marble also worries about the methods being used to extract the crude oil from the water. He recalls Exxon using bio-remediation to dissolve the oil, but hasn’t heard any reports about BP using that method. Bio-remediation is a technique that uses natural microbes to dissolve oil. There are several differences between the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the Deepwater Horizon spill, such as the type of crude oil and the environment in which it spilled. Marble said the response to the spills is different as well. He said he thinks BP’s approach to the Gulf oil-spill crisis is “too little, too late.” — McClatchy-Tribune News Service
hopes of plugging it up with mud and concrete, and they are working on other ways to cap it. The well has been spewing about 200,000 gallons a day in the nation’s biggest oil spill since the nearly 11 million gallons lost in the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska in 1989. The cause of the blast has not been determined, but investigators have been focusing on the so-called blowout preventer. Federal regulators told The Associated Press that they are going to examine whether these last-resort cutoff valves on offshore oil wells are reliable. Oil was reported moving west of the Mississippi toward fishing and resort villages on the Louisiana coast. Several members of Congress flew over the spill and then visited Hopedale on Friday as well.
Graham calls climate bill ‘impossible’ By Juliet Eilperin The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday that it has become “impossible” to pass climate and energy legislation at the moment, a declaration that likely dooms the bill’s chance of passage this year. Graham had spent months trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the issue with Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., but he suggested late last month that he
was unwilling to continue after Senate Democratic leaders said they hoped to push through immigration legislation this year. His new statement is more definitive and suggests that the one Republican who could serve as a bridge to the GOP on a climate bill will abandon the effort altogether. The Democrats’ immigration push and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill have put a halt to any immediate expansion of offshore oil drilling, Graham said, and hampered any chance of reach-
ing a bipartisan deal. “When it comes to our nation’s policy on energy independence and pollution control, I don’t believe any American finds the status quo acceptable,” Graham said in a statement, adding, “I believe there could be more than 60 votes for this bipartisan concept in the future. But there are not nearly 60 votes today, and I do not see them materializing until we deal with the uncertainty of the immigration debate and the consequences of the oil spill.”
Cameron asks Liberal Democrats to help form U.K. government By Anthony Faiola and Dan Balz The Washington Post
LONDON — Britain headed into the weekend Friday without a new leader as the Conservative Party’s David Cameron scrambled to fashion a working government after voters produced this nation’s most divided Parliament in decades. Final results from Thursday’s election showed Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s Labor Party suffering its worst defeat in 80 years, but Conservative gains fell short of a clear majority, setting up a hung Parliament after 13 years of Labor rule. Cameron and Brown were openly courting coalition deals with Nicholas Clegg, of the thirdplace Liberal Democrats, in rival bids for power. In a blow to Brown, Clegg signaled his intention to negotiate with the Conservatives first. The pressure to act fast was becoming intense. The debt emergency in Greece has ignited fears of a new stage in the global financial crisis, and the political stalemate in heavily indebted Britain was heightening concerns that the country could become the next target of investor panic. On Friday, the pound hit a one-year low against the dollar, dropping even against the battered euro. A key stock index tied to Britain’s domestic economy shed more than 4 percent, and British bonds came under fresh pressure.
Queen becomes more important in hung parliament LONDON — In the movie “The Queen,” Helen Mirren invites Tony Blair’s character, who is kneeling at her feet, to become prime minister and form a government in her name. The year was 1997, and the real Tony Blair had just won a landslide victory. Today, things are different. As Britons went to the polls Thursday in one of the closest races in a generation, the outcome was far from conclusive. The United Kingdom has no written constitution, but by convention, if one party wins more than half the seats in the House of Commons, the queen summons the leader of that party and formally anoints that person prime minister. But if no party clinches a majority win, as many polls say is likely, Queen Elizabeth II could potentially play a more central role than in recent elections. The queen could call a fresh election if a workable government can’t be formed (likewise, she can prevent an election from being called if she thinks there are other viable options). — The Washington Post
Findings show Maya had pressurized water By Thomas H. Maugh II Los Angeles Times
Archaeologists have discovered the oldest pressurized water system in the New World, an aqueduct/tunnel system in the southern Mexico site of Palenque that probably powered a fountain or a waste water system. Such pressurized water systems appeared in the Old World at least as long ago as 1400 B.C: The remains of such a system have been found in a Minoan palace in Crete. But the apparent lack of similar remains in the Americas led most archaeologists to assume that they did not appear here until they were brought by the Spanish in the 16th century. The new find in the Maya city, which was first occupied about AD 100 and abandoned 700 years later, indicates that at least one American culture developed such systems independently. Pressurized water systems are necessary for
fountains, among other uses. If water is not pressurized, it simply bubbles out of the ground rather than spraying dramatically upward in a display. The aqueduct/tunnel structure was discovered by then graduate student Kirk French in 1998 when he was part of a team mapping the city’s ruins, but he did not immediately recognize its significance. It was only when French, now at Pennsylvania State University, consulted hydrologist Christopher Duffy of Penn State and the pair returned to the site that they appreciated the structure’s import, he said. The site is crossed by a number of streams, and the Maya built many underground aqueducts at Palenque to channel the water and control flooding during the rainy season.

R Atheist’s bid to remove ‘God’ from presidential oath denied
By Michael Doyle McClatchy-Tribune News Service
WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Friday rejected an effort to strip the word “God” from presidential oaths. Citing largely technical reasons, a three-member appellate panel ruled that California attorney Michael Newdow and his allies weren’t in a position to legally challenge the oaths. Newdow, an atheist, had hoped to avoid formal invocation of the deity’s name in the 2013 and 2017 inaugurations. “The only apparent avenue of redress for plaintiffs’ claimed injuries would be injunctive or declaratory relief against all possible president-elects and the president himself,” noted Judge Janice Rogers Brown of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. “But such relief is unavailable.” The appellate court further determined that Newdow’s related challenge to the oath taken by President-elect Barack Obama on Jan. 20, 2009, was moot, since there was nothing that could be done after the fact. (The president took the oath twice, once on the Capitol steps and again at the White House, because Chief Justice John Roberts and Obama flubbed their lines the first time.) “Whether the 2009 ceremony’s incorporation of the religious oath and prayers was constitutional may be an important question to plaintiffs, but it is not a live controversy that can avail itself of the judicial powers of the federal courts,” Brown stated. Newdow, who is also an emergency-room physician in Sacramento, Calif., has been challenging religion in the public realm for many years but with little lasting success. Most famously, in 2004, the Supreme Court rejected his claim against the suburban Sacramento Elk Grove Unified School District’s use of the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. The court’s 2004 decision, much like the new appellate panel decision, centered on technical rather than substantive constitutional grounds. By a 5-3 margin, the high court determined that Newdow lacked the standing to sue because he didn’t have sole legal custody over his daughter, on whose behalf the suit was brought. Newdow subsequently sought to remove “In God We Trust” from U.S. currency. A federal judge rejected the effort, reasoning that the phrase simply amounted to a national slogan. In March, in yet another case brought by Newdow, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Sacramento-area Rio Linda Union School District’s use of “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. “The pledge is one of allegiance to our republic, not of allegiance to the God or to any religion,” Judge Carlos Bea wrote in the March 11 decision. “Furthermore, Congress’ ostensible and predominant purpose when it enacted and amended the pledge over time was patriotic, not religious.”

Churches’ outreach extends to the links By Ron Orozco McClatchy-Tribune News Service
FRESNO, Calif. — Churches and faith groups are connecting with the public through sport. In some areas, golf ministries are giving people a way to have fun and build fellowship while learning more about churches and faith-based organizations. “Just about anyone can play golf,” says Dennis Hammond, president of the Christian Golf Club of Central California. The club holds monthly tournaments to help raise money for faith-based organizations. This year, proceeds are going to the Evangel Home, a Christian organization helping women and children. “You don’t have to be a gifted athlete to play golf,” Hammond says. “All ages play, youngsters to grandparents in their 90s. You don’t have to be a good player to have fun.” Faith leaders say golf ministries create opportunities for people to better understand what they do. It sometimes translates into new members, volunteers and donations. But they say they are mainly interested in helping people. In the spring and summer months, when the weather is best for golf, ministry events are presented in California’s Central Valley nearly every day. On a recent Thursday, for example, Fresno/Madera Youth for Christ held its annual golf tournament — 110 golfers played through an afternoon drizzle at Fort Washington Country Club. After play ended, everyone gathered in the club’s banquet room, where Youth for Christ’s executive director, Ed Kaczmarek, gave a presentation on how the faith-based organization helps needy kids and how donors can help. “Golf reaches those who are business owners and community leaders — and it’s a great group to reach,” Kaczmarek says. “There’s good camaraderie, good fellowship on the golf course. “When you have a good day of golf, it lifts up your organiza-

“When you have a ministry, golf is another avenue for how you can meet other people. It is an outlet that is safe for everybody.” — Richard Lee, who plays in a Twilight Golf League ministry tion. There’s a levity that brings warm fuzzies around your organization.” Clovis Hills Community Church presents a Twilight Golf League ministry, which holds four-person scramble events at 3 p.m. Sundays at Eagle Springs Golf and Country Club, formerly Brighton Crest. The ministry is designed for men and women — church members and nonmembers — to get to know each other outside of church. “We know church can be intimidating for people who have never gone,” says a Clovis Hills associate pastor, the Rev. Dave Love. “So many people have gone to church and had a bad experience. So we just try to lessen the stereotype that people tend to have.” The ministry’s organizer, Rod Gleghorn, says he always tries to share his faith and tell others how they can get involved in church ministries. “If you just go on Sundays, you just sit in the pews and don’t get to know others,” he says.
Richard Lee, who plays in the Clovis Hills league with his wife, Mickey, says he tries to listen on the course, hoping to zero in on people’s needs. The Lees coordinate the church’s Crown financial ministry, which trains people to apply biblical principles in money management. “When you have a ministry, golf is another avenue for how you can meet other people,” he says. “It is an outlet that is safe for everybody. “You ask, ‘What can we do to help you out?’ You can’t do that if you don’t meet people.” “People need various avenues to come to church, and we just want to be an example to them,” says Steve Melnyk, director of the recreational ministries for NorthPointe Community Church in northwest Fresno. “Whatever door they can come through, we just want to provide that opening.” Melnyk says creativity counts, but so does faith. He says, “I think God leads stuff, and we just follow.”
This year’s National Day of Prayer could be the last By Clement Tan McClatchy-Tribune News Service
WASHINGTON — A fixture since President Harry S. Truman signed a bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer 58 years ago, 2010 could be the last time the event is observed if the White House fails in an appeal against a court ruling that it violates the ban on government-backed religion. Wisconsin-based U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb ruled April 15 in favor of the Freedom From Religion Foun-
dation in a suit brought against President Barack Obama. She ruled that the federal law that designates a National Day of Prayer and requires an annual presidential proclamation of the National Day of Prayer violates the establishment clause of the Constitution’s First Amendment. Despite that ruling, several observances took place around the capital Thursday, including at the Pentagon, the Cannon House Office Building and on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. In her decision, Crabb said until the defendants
in the case exhaust their right to appeal the decision, observance ceremonies could still go ahead. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a national membership association of free thinkers based in Madison, Wis., held a rally protesting the day of prayer on the steps of the Wisconsin state Capitol. Charles Haynes, a senior First Amendment scholar specializing in religious liberty at the Washington-based Freedom Forum, said he expects the president to succeed with his appeal. But he
said Crabb was merely being consistent with past rulings and essentially saying “what everybody knows about the inherent (constitutional) contradiction of the National Day of Prayer.” “The courts are not immune to public dissatisfaction,” he said, adding the Court of Appeal could possibly cite a 1983 Supreme Court decision that upheld the right to legislative prayer, on grounds “the offering of prayer is a tolerable acknowledgment of beliefs widely held among the people of this country.”

RNC finance director, deputy forced to resign By Chris Cillizza The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — The Republican National Committee’s finance director and his top deputy were forced out Friday as the organization continued to grapple with embarrassing disclosures about its spending practices and fundraising tactics.
Chairman Michael Steele asked for Rob Bickhart’s and Debbie LeHardy’s resignations because he “felt it was important to restructure the department in order to continue to improve on our strong fundraising numbers,” according to a letter the RNC sent to its 168 members. The move followed the accidental release in March of a
PowerPoint presentation, intended for internal use by the RNC’s finance department, that portrayed President Barack Obama as the Joker and described high-level GOP donors as “ego-driven.” Later that month came the disclosure that the RNC had made a payment of more than $1,900 for donors to attend a bond-
age-themed nightclub in Los Angeles. Those disclosures and the departures of other senior staff — chief of staff Ken McKay and senior adviser Curt Anderson also left — have contributed to an air of turmoil at a time when Republicans have been buoyed by the increasing political problems surrounding Democrats.
Immigration Continued from A1 Immigration lawyers and Department of Homeland Security officials say that many thousands of people in the military have spouses or close relatives who are illegal immigrants. Many of those service members have fought to gain legal status for their family members — only to hit a legal dead end created in 1996, when Congress last made major revisions to the immigration laws. Today the issue is not only personal. “It is an issue of readiness for the American armed forces,” says Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., who chairs the House subcommittee on immigration. “We have many Americans who are afraid to deploy.” Tenebro would like to make a career in the military, including new missions to Iraq or Afghanistan, but for now he is not stepping forward for an overseas deployment. “Our situation has kept me at bay because of the constant worry that something might happen to my family while I am away,” he said. With the debate over illegal immigration sharpening after a tough law passed in Arizona, immigration lawyers said the Tenebros’ case illustrates legal obstacles that have stopped immigrants from becoming legal even when they could qualify. “We have made it impossible for many illegal immigrants to become legal,” said Charles Kuck, an immigration lawyer in Atlanta who was 2009 president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, the national bar. Many lawmakers say that existing penalties have helped curb illegal immigration and, if anything, should be increased.
A Catch-22 Like Tenebro, many soldiers, anticipating rebuke and possibly damage to their careers, do not reveal to others in the military their family ties to immigrants here illegally. “You will always hear the jokes about those who crossed the border,” Tenebro said. “Even though we think we did everything legally possible, it’s just not knowing what other people will think. Maybe they will find ways to hit you, without knowing the whole facts.” Tenebro, 35, an Army officer now stationed at Fort Dix, N.J., said he decided to tell his story publicly for the first time after lawyers advised Wilma Tenebro that she had little hope of being approved to remain here as a legal resident without a change in immigration law. He risks drawing the attention of his commanders and the immigration authorities to his wife’s illegal status. Wilma is snagged on a statute, notorious among immigration lawyers, that makes it virtually impossible for her to become a legal resident without first leaving the United States and staying away for 10 years. Because of the Catch-22, the severe penalty applies to her even though she is the wife of an American citizen who is also an active-duty serviceman. Lieutenant Tenebro, who was never in the United States illegally, was naturalized in 2003. The legal boomerang that snared her and many others was
Piotr Redlinski / New York Times News Service
U.S. Army Lt. Kenneth Tenebro, 35, stands outside his New York home with his wife, Wilma, and their 3-year-old daughter. While serving in Iraq, Tenebro feared that his wife and daughter would be deported. Even though Wilma Tenebro has qualified for a green card, if she leaves the United States to get it, she will automatically trigger the legal bar that will block her from returning for 10 years. created in 1996, when Congress imposed automatic restrictions on illegal immigrants, barring them from returning for periods of 3 to 10 years after they leave the country, regardless of whether they were deported or left voluntarily. However, in many cases the law also requires immigrants who are approved for legal documents to complete their paperwork at American consulates in their home countries. The Tenebros’ immigration troubles began with a moonstruck romance. They met one weekend five years ago while Wilma was on vacation in New York at the end of a job as a housekeeper on a cruise ship. She did not return to the Philippines, and eventually she overstayed her visa. Love led to marriage, and their daughter, who is now 3, and an expensive battle to gain legal status for Wilma, 37. In 2008, Citizenship and Immigration Services, the federal agency, gave Wilma approval to become a legal permanent resident, as the spouse of an American citizen. In general, immigration law is designed to make it easy for foreigners who marry citizens to become legal residents.
Many lawyers, same answer But because of the particular visa she overstayed — known as a crewman’s visa — she is required to finish the paperwork for her green card in the Philippines. Every one of a string of lawyers the couple consulted — $7,000 in fees so far — gave them the same bad news: Even though Wilma has qualified for a green card, if she leaves the United States to get it, she will automatically trigger the legal bar that will block her from returning for 10 years. In rare circumstances of severe hardship, consular officials have the authority to grant waivers allowing spouses to return here more quickly. But officials in Manila are known among lawyers for being especially reluctant to give waivers. For his wife, Tenebro said, the visa offered in Manila is “like the cheese in a mousetrap. It’s like, hey, come and get it! And then, swat! They’ll get you.”
Okay. Now what?
One lawyer after another suggested the same option, he said: “Wait until there is a change in the language of the law.” Susan Timmons, who runs the military assistance program for the immigration lawyers association, said there was little lawyers could do in such cases. “If you do try to follow the law, you run into a serious problem and you won’t be able to fix your situation,” Timmons said. Her program has received hundreds of similar cases from American soldiers, she said. Tenebro said he and his wife believed they were following the rules by prolonging their courtship and waiting for several months after their marriage in February 2007 to file for her immigration papers, so it would be clear that their marriage was not fake. They remember the first time a lawyer explained the decadelong separation they could be facing. “I didn’t want to show emotion, but it was like shock,” Wilma said. “I was thinking, to be away from my family is hard.”
In Congress Lofgren and Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., have proposed bills that would make it easier for spouses and close relatives of Americans in the military to become legal residents. Those bills are included in immigration overhaul legislation, including measures to grant legal status to millions of currently illegal immigrants, that Democratic Congressional leaders are preparing. But after the furor over the Arizona law, President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he
wanted to “begin work” on the overhaul — but not try to pass a bill — this year. Republicans argue that the administration should concentrate on enforcement, not on easing the law. “Millions of individuals come to the U.S. on visas every year and don’t overstay them,” said Lamar Smith of Texas, the senior Republican on the House Judiciary Committee. “Congress has already provided for remedies in appropriate cases, so there should be no need to change the rules.” Homeland Security officials said that in the absence of Congressional action, they had been working quietly to fix immigration problems for American soldiers on a case-by-case basis, using limited authorities that already exist in law. After a preliminary review of the Tenebros’ case in response to a reporter’s questions, Citizenship and Immigration Services officials said they were working to identify legal alternatives for them. “Keeping U.S. military families together is a vital priority,” said Matt Chandler, a Homeland Security Department spokesman. Now, instead of a foreign mission, Tenebro is running a marathon every month or so, raising money for veterans coming back with injuries. At home on Long Island, Wilma, who cannot work legally, feels a chill every time immigration news comes on the radio. “We just have our bags packed all the time in case immigration will come knocking on the door,” Tenebro said “We talk about what school to pick and what apartment to get. But it’s in the Philippines.”
Veterans Continued from A1 “In total, I’ve had maybe half a dozen veterans in my program,” she said. “But what we’re looking at is, are we going to see an increase in veterans coming in contact with the legal system?” The program would only be available for veterans who met specific criteria. People who commit serious crimes would not be eligible, and there would need to be a clear connection between the crime and the offender’s mental health issues. “If you’re a veteran and you go out and rob a bank, that doesn’t cut it; you’re not going to get specialty treatment because you’re a veteran,” said District Attorney Mike Dugan. “If a veteran engages in some kind of criminal behavior directly related to a mental illness like post-traumatic stress disorder, we will incorporate mental health treatment and make an effort to treat it a little differently because they are different.” Patrick Flaherty, an attorney who is challenging Dugan in the May election, said he would also back the creation of a veterans court if he becomes the county’s top prosecutor. “I think it’s important to recognize the unique circumstances that confront war veterans and that mental health issues can lead to drug and alcohol problems, lead to them becoming involved in the criminal justice system,” he said. Participants in the program would be able to avoid jail if they could successfully complete a treatment program under the supervision of a judge.
Other courts Similar programs started popping up around the U.S. in the last few years. The country’s first veterans court, which opened in Buffalo, N.Y., currently has 150 participants and has graduated 30 veterans, said Jack O’Connor, who coordinates the court’s mentor program. He said the Buffalo court uses staff from other specialty courts and relies on the help of volunteers — many of them veterans themselves — so it hasn’t required additional funding. O’Connor said he attributes much of the court’s success to the veterans who serve as mentors. He pointed to one case he observed this week with a young veteran who was struggling with drug abuse and other issues. “He didn’t trust the lawyer, he didn’t trust the judge, but when that Marine talked to him, he definitely trusted him,” O’Connor said. Klamath County District Attorney Ed Caleb said he’s hoping to have a veterans court up and running by this
summer. Caleb said he’s already found a judge, a defense attorney and a prosecutor willing to work in the court and is looking into incorporating mentors for the participants. He said the Klamath County program would be the first in Oregon. “I’ve got a feeling this is going to be a notion that just catches on around the country,” he said. Noah Kirshbaum, a program coordinator for the Partnership to End Poverty, said he’s been talking about the idea with local veterans services officials and others for several months. At first, he said people were tossing around the idea of a specialty court targeted at services for the homeless. But he said those plans evolved as they realized that veterans might need more of the same services. “There’s a high level of poverty and homelessness among veterans anyway, so at the very least, we can get all the partners working together, and that’s a big step in the right direction,” he said. Dugan said speciality courts have become increasingly popular around the state, and there are now about a dozen mental health courts in Oregon. “You can argue about a lot of different things, but you can’t fight about the need to have mental health treatment courts,” he said. “You can’t fight about the need to have mental health veterans treatment courts.”
Other counseling The discussions about the court program come at a time when the area’s first U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs counseling center has just opened its doors. The downtown Bend facility, which provides individual counseling for veterans and will soon offer group sessions and couples counseling, currently has one full-time staff member. More counselors are scheduled to begin at the center over the next few months. As planners look into funding options for the court, Kirshbaum said they are working to make the existing treatment courts work better for veterans. Once they’ve been able to gather a list of the best services for veterans, he said officials will be better prepared to get a specialty court up and running. There’s currently no specific cost estimate for the court. “If in six months we determine that there’s a large amount of PTSD or (traumatic brain injury) cases and we need to develop a separate system, we will have done all the planning,” he said. “Our role is to help bring the partners together so that if the need is there, the systems will be there.” Erin Golden can be reached at 541-617-7837 or at email@example.com.

THE BULLETIN • Saturday, May 8, 2010 A7
Movies Continued from A1 It’s got the kind of beloved status that used to take years or even decades to achieve through video rentals and late-night cable. The schlockery of “Birdemic” is evident from its trailer, which has hundreds of thousands of YouTube views: uncomfortable dialogue, stiff acting, shoddy lighting, jumpy edits. And then there are the eagles and vultures that terrorize a quiet town before bursting into flames. To describe them as cheesy would be charitable. Characters swat at them with wire hangers, which have become the film’s trademark. First in line in San Francisco, Korrena Bailey said she heard about it from a friend back home in Ireland who’s a B-movie aficionado. “The birds explode! There’s no better reason (to see it),” she said, smiling. “The special effects are obviously top-notch.” Still, Nguyen insists fans are drawn to its sincerity, and not just coming to cackle. His film has screened for executives on the Paramount Pictures lot, and he’s working on a sequel, “Birdemic: The Resurrection.” “It’s a good story, there’s some humor to it, and people like that,” he said. “Despite all of its imperfections — from the visual effects, the animation, you name it — the audience will acknowledge that and see through that.”
Better in a crowd Laughing at the earnestness and ineptitude of such movies is only part of the allure; doing it in a theater packed with people is the bigger draw, said Michael Paul Stephenson, star of the 1990 cult favorite “Troll 2.” “These films celebrate the

Wild birds attack in a scene from “Birdemic: Shock and Terror.” The film, in which eagles and vultures terrorize a quiet town and burst into flames, has a trailer that has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on YouTube. It has generated wide popularity among B-movie fanatics. “The birds explode! There’s no better reason (to see it),” said Korrena Bailey, waiting in line for a showing in San Francisco. communal experience of watching a film together. That’s something that’s passing away,” Stephenson said. When Evan Husney of Severin Films saw “Birdemic” at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 — where it had been rejected, but Nguyen brought it anyway — he had no idea what to make of the movie. “A lot of things were just astonishingly wrong with the film in terms of the audio. I think the cut of the movie we saw was even worse,” Husney said. “The first 20 minutes of this thing, I wasn’t convinced it was real until it started to sink in: There is no way that a film like this could be faked.” Still, Severin picked it up, and sites like Twitter — with help from celebrity fans — have propelled it.
“Rainn Wilson has 1.9 million followers,” Husney said. “That’s an instantaneous blast e-mail to 1.9 million people who are into this guy and are going to want to see what he recommends.” Social networks also have created buzz for a horror movie with far better production values, “The Human Centipede,” which has played at packed midnight shows in New York and is expanding this month. How to describe it tastefully? A mad German scientist abducts people for an experiment in which he attaches their bodies to each other to make, um, a human centipede. IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring said he knew something was up when his company acquired the movie at Fantastic Fest last year, and the plot description alone got people
‘Troll 2’ reborn Messages on MySpace helped Stephenson realize the cult popularity of “Troll 2,” about a family that’s attacked by goblins, and rated the worst movie ever on IMDb.com.

Deschutes County juvenile justice
Continued from A1 Nationally, the arrest rate for youths ages 10 to 17 for violent crimes such as murder and aggravated assault dropped by 5 percent between 2006 and 2008, according to the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Juvenile property crimes declined 49 percent from 1991 to 2008, although there was an upturn of 9 percent between 2006 and 2008. “It’s a statewide trend; it’s a national trend,” said Craig Prins, executive director of the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission. Crime rates for adults are also down, he noted.
‘Anticipating an increase’
Lower numbers of youths referred to Deschutes County’s juvenile detention center could be a sign the county is part of a national trend of declining juvenile crime.

The last time the county estimated how many youths would need to be housed at the detention center was more than a decade ago, leading to construction of the current facility. “We’ve been anticipating an increase, but it hasn’t materialized,” Hales said about a month ago. The center opened in 1998. Hales and Bob LaCombe, administrator of the Juvenile Community Justice Division of the county Community Justice Department, could not locate the population forecast from that period, Hales wrote in an e-mail. Not all local law enforcement who deal with youths have felt the effects of declining crime rates. Mike Maunder, a school resource officer with the Bend Police Department who works at Summit High School and Cascade Middle School, said the number of incidents he deals with go up and down, and recently, “I’ve been on a roll.” Sometimes, booking youths into the juvenile detention center helps them realize the impact of their behavior, even if they are not lodged there, Maunder said. Recently, he said staff at the detention center have been less willing to book youths on suspi-

cion of misdemeanor crimes. Hales disagreed and said the detention center holds suspected misdemeanor offenders if they were arrested on suspicion of crimes involving another person, if they have prior offenses or if they are flight risks. “We have strict criteria for making detention holding decisions,” Hales said. “It’s pretty much driven by what’s in statute, and I can guarantee that has not changed since I’ve been here.” Despite the tight 2010-11 budget year looming for Deschutes County, the decision to close part of the detention facility was based primarily on the lower numbers of juvenile offenders, Hales has said. Deschutes County made it through the recession so far without cutting staff or services in many departments, which had built up savings accounts during better economic times. County officials expect weaker than normal property tax growth this year, so some departments must now trim their budgets. Deschutes County announced in March it planned to lay off five employees who work with youths at the detention center, which be-
came effective Friday. The county Department of Solid Waste is also laying off two employees because of budget constraints, and the fee-supported Community Development Department has gone through several rounds of layoffs since the housing market downturn. The juvenile center layoffs will save approximately $300,000, and the department will also leave a more expensive position open for at least six months when Bob LaCombe, administrator of the Juvenile Community Justice Division, retires in June. LaCombe’s salary and benefits add up to $154,054, Hales said.
Decline in crime? Prins and others said it is difficult to isolate reasons why juvenile crime has declined in recent years. One factor in crime rates is that males between the ages of 16 and 24 are statistically more likely to commit crimes, Prins said, so changes in the size of this group can affect crime rates. There was an increase of less than 1 percent in the number of teenage boys and young men

tweeting. Among the earliest to write about “The Human Centipede” on Twitter was actor-director Kevin Smith, who has nearly 1.7 million followers. “In a really fragmented audience, with a world of choices and options as to how to spend your time and your entertainment dollar, to get people you trust saying, ‘See this film; oh, it’s great,’ you can’t buy that,” Sehring said.

umentary about its unexpected popularity, “Best Worst Movie.” “They’d start sending me pictures of ‘Troll 2’ parties they were having in their basements,” Stephenson said. “I remember looking at the pictures and seeing the genuine fun and enjoyment they were having with the movie, and thinking, ‘Why?’” But the mother of all recent cult movies — which was made in a deadly serious way but has produced midnight belly laughs for seven years — is “The Room.” For the uninitiated, “The Room” is a love triangle between Johnny (writer-director-producer Tommy Wiseau), his fiancee and his best friend. It has all the wooden acting, chintzy production design, tacky melodrama and choppy edits you might expect. But any movie can be bad. “The Room” is surreal. Fans flock to screenings with plastic spoons, which they hurl at the screen in a bit of “Rocky Horror Picture Show”-style interaction. Recently, “The Room” sold out New York’s historic, 1,200seat Ziegfeld Theatre; Wiseau’s next goal is to show it at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Nearly 10,000 people “like” it on Facebook, and there are countless tributes and mashups on YouTube. But Wiseau insists social networks haven’t made it a worldwide hit: word of mouth has, and the power of its symbolism. “‘The Room’ connects people,” he said. “I think very strongly ‘The Room’ eliminates crime in America. Young people, imagine what they do before midnight? People always do crazy stuff. If you go see ‘The Room,’ you have a groovy time, you interact.” So if audiences are laughing at his movie? “This is, for me, irrelevant,” Wiseau said. “I would not change anything with ‘The Room.’” And neither would its fans.
declining juvenile crime has not impacted the number of youths incarcerated in locked Oregon Youth Authority facilities, said agency spokeswoman Ann Snyder. The facilities are still operating near their capacity of 900 beds. The agency treats youths from the ages of 12 to 24. “The beds we have available are based on the budget, not the need,” Snyder said. “The need could be great. All we do know is, with the amount of beds for which we are budgeted, we are full.” Jim LaPorte, mental health supervisor at the county’s Juvenile Community Justice Department, said a shift in priorities at juvenile facilities to focus on prevention is paying off. “Juvenile delinquency is going down, I think largely because the other trend is juvenile departments, at the state and county, are more into seeing what’s going on with youth, and interested in alternatives to incarceration,” La Porte said.

Nepal’s Maoists call end to strike By Kiran Chapagain and Jim Yardley New York Times News Service
KATMANDU, Nepal — Nepal’s Maoists ended their general strike on Friday, after crippling the nation for six days, but failed to achieve their goal of pressuring the prime minister and his coalition government to step down. Maoist leaders announced their decision late Friday evening after an estimated 20,000 professionals staged a rally in the heart of the capital to call for an end to the strike and implore the Maoists and other political parties to make progress in the nation’s stalemated peace process. The strike had been growing sporadically more violent and confrontational, with reports of clashes between Maoist cadres and workers from other political parties. Public frustration had been building as the strike crippled transportation, forced schools to close and shuttered most businesses. Food shortages were reported in Katmandu, the capital, as Maoists blocked shipments of consumer goods into the city. Nepal, wedged strategically in the Himalayas between India and China, faces a May 28 deadline to complete a new constitution to restructure the national government. But negotiations have been stalled between the Maoists, now a political party, and other political parties. Formalizing a new constitution is the final step in the 2006 peace agreement that ended a 10-year guerrilla war by the Maoists. The rising instability has drawn concern from the country’s powerful neighbors, as well as from the United States, which has urged the Maoists to end their strike. China and India have called on Nepalese leaders to reach a deal. Hours before the Maoists called off the strike, a top U.N. official in Nepal said his office was “deeply concerned” about the rising violence spawned by the strike. Human rights monitors reported scattered violence throughout the country.

China praises N. Korea at end of Kim’s visit By Barbara Demick Los Angeles Times
BEIJING — China’s leaders offered up effusive words of praise for North Korea on Friday at the conclusion of a secretive five-day visit by ailing leader Kim Jong Il. Beijing appeared to be going out of its way to be gracious to Kim, a deliberate signal that it is not ready to pull the plug on its
relationship with the wayward and often embarrassing ally. The Chinese government also might have wanted to bolster Kim’s regime at a time of increasing speculation that the regime could collapse. Breaking days of silence about Kim’s visit, Chinese President Hu Jintao released a statement through the official Xinhua news agency calling the tradi-
tional friendship between China and North Korea a “common treasure of the two governments, parties and peoples.” “It is the historical responsibility of the two sides to push forward their friendship with the progress of the times and from generation to generation,” Hu said in the statement. For his part, Kim apparently offered only vague expressions
of interest in returning to longstalled international talks on its nuclear program. Although South Korea’s Yonhap news service said Kim had said he would return to the bargaining table at some point, the Chinese said only that “the North Korean side is willing, together with all parties, to discuss favorable conditions for restarting the six-party talks.”
Violence follows Afghan poppy harvest By Sebastian Abbot The Associated Press
GHUNDY GHAR, Afghanistan — The gunfire and explosions echoing across this Taliban-infested district in southern Afghanistan on Friday signaled the end of the opium poppy harvest as militants again turned their attention from agriculture to attacking NATO and Afghan forces. U.S. Army soldiers perched on this small hilltop base in Kandahar province’s Zhari district had a ringside seat to the early morning fighting. It snapped a lull in violence that had lasted almost three weeks while the Taliban focused on taxing the poppy crop, one of its main sources of revenue. Building up resources is especially important for the Taliban this year as NATO is ramping up its latest military operation in Kandahar, the group’s spiritual heartland. Military commanders have characterized the Kandahar mission as the make-orbreak battle of the nearly 9-yearold war. “This is the most gunfire that has happened in weeks,” said Staff Sgt. Aaron Christensen, looking down from Strong Point Ghundy Ghar as helicopter gunships pounded Taliban militants who had attacked a U.S. patrol about 1.5 miles away. “The poppy harvest is definitely over.” Afghanistan produces the raw opium used to make 90 percent of the world’s heroin, and the Taliban earn about $300 million per year off the trade, according to the United Nations. Kandahar itself produced

U.S. Army Sgt. Steve Fanton motions to an Afghan man to spread his arms to be searched Friday at a checkpoint in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province. Kandahar produced about 16 percent of Afghanistan’s opium poppies in 2009, and the end of this year’s harvest has freed up the Taliban to go on the offensive again. about 16 percent of Afghanistan’s opium poppies in 2009, the second-largest amount after neighboring Helmand province. The key districts in Kandahar for poppy are Zhari, Panjwai and Maiwand. “I really underestimated how much the poppy harvest would impact the Taliban’s operations out here,” said Capt. Ryan Sheeran, the company commander
whose First Platoon is currently based at Ghundy Ghar but also operates in Maiwand. “Taliban operations literally went down to nothing.” That all changed abruptly on Friday. The morning dawned with a roadside bomb attack against Afghan army troops as they traveled along the main highway that runs through Kandahar about a mile north of
Ghundy Ghar, said Lt. Jonathan Lessman, the commander of First Platoon. The blast triggered an intense firefight that lasted nearly 10 minutes. About an hour later, militants holed up in a mud compound attacked a U.S. platoon that had set up a temporary observation post east of Ghundy Ghar, Lessman said. Over the next 30 minutes, the soldiers responded with a punishing barrage of grenades and gunfire, while Kiowa helicopters pounded the militants with rockets, sending up clouds of dust and smoke. It was unclear if there were any casualties from the two incidents. The U.S. soldiers who were attacked were based at another small outpost in Zhari called Strong Point Lako Khel, which has been a favorite target of Taliban militants because it doesn’t enjoy the same defensive hilltop position as Ghundy Ghar. Both outposts fall under the command of 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, which has responsibility for providing security in western Zhari and Maiwand. “Now that the harvest is ending, we will definitely see an increase in roadside bombs on the highway and attacks against Afghan and coalition troops,” said Lessman.

W B Inquiry into German bishop is widened BERLIN — A German bishop who offered his resignation after admitting that he had physically abused children as a priest is now under investigation for sexual abuse, yet another shock to the Roman Catholic Church in Germany, which is reeling from a growing child-molestation scandal. According to a report Friday in the newspaper Augsburger Allgemeine, prosecutors are looking into a complaint of sexual abuse of an underage boy by Bishop Walter Mixa of Augsburg, an outspoken conservative. Mixa denied the accusations through a lawyer, the newspaper said.
Iran tries to reach out at U.N. meeting A top-level Iranian delegation garnered worldwide attention this week with appearances at the United Nations designed to win international support for its position on nuclear issues. But the effort instead underscored many of the challenges Iran faces in its quest. In one of the unusual moves, Iran’s foreign minister held a dinner Thursday evening in New York for the U.N. Security Council members — including a U.S. official — who are weighing a new round of sanctions against Iran for its disputed nuclear program. Earlier in the week, Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, kicked off a conference on the Non-Proliferation Treaty, the keystone counterproliferation pact, with a fiery denunciation of the United States. Some diplomats and private analysts said Ahmadinejad’s speech worked against Iranian interests by making it harder for potential allies to Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions

Stalin debate flares in Russian celebration MOSCOW — As Russians prepare to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany this weekend, an event hallowed here as the unalloyed triumph of good over evil, a major question still looms: What should be done about Stalin? The passionate debate over Josef Stalin, wartime hero or murderous tyrant, flared Friday when President Dmitry Medvedev lashed out against his legacy. “Stalin committed massive crimes against his own people,” Medvedev said in remarks released Friday. “Despite how hard he worked and the successes achieved under his leadership, what he did to his own people cannot be forgiven.”
Taiwan president says China talks ‘premature’ TAIPEI — Despite warming relations and deepening trade ties, it is “premature” to consider a meeting between the leaders of Taiwan and China, Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou said in a Friday interview that set practical limits on his policy of engagement with the mainland. “There’s a long way to go before the two sides can find something in common politically,” said Ma, who has overseen a diplomatic and economic thaw with China that U.S. officials regard as of strategic significance, calming one of Asia’s most acute potential flashpoints. — From wire reports

Lost Coast, Tail of the Dragon lead secret list of best roads By Jason H. Harper Bloomberg News
A fellow car journalist, well into his cups, recently told me about his secret road. Bless the Jameson Irish whiskey as he revealed its many twists and turns, lack of traffic and proximity to Los Angeles. He might even have mentioned the paucity of law enforcement. I like cars, but I love roads. A classic Mustang ragtop is nothing without a canvas to drive it on. Now that long weekends are approaching and good weather has warmed mountain lanes, the great American road trip is calling. My criteria are simple: Spectacular scenery; good food (check out Jane and Michael Stern’s book “Roadfood” for the local and offbeat); and the primary route should be a back way rather than a freeway, preferably with more twists than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. One good turn deserves another: I’m willing to spill a few secrets of my own. California’s Highway 1 is everyone’s favorite for good reason: sublime oceanside vistas, and the road itself is twisty-turny nirvana. But traffic congestion means the stultifying death of a good road trip, and its vertiginous hairpins are beset by herds of slow-moving RVs and terrified tourists in rented Sebrings. Don’t give up the dream, just go farther north. Last year my wife, Miranda, and I thundered up from San Francisco in a Land Rover LR4. See Roads / B3

Love child grows up feeling sting of her mom’s regret Dear Abby: My mother became pregnant with me in 1965 when she was 20 and divorced from her husband. My father was a married man who knew about me, but made no effort to see me. I know my mother believed he would leave his wife for her, and because I closely resemble him — according to family members — she must have felt terrible when I was growing up. I always felt she didn’t love me as much as she loved my brothers. I have grown up with a hole inside me where a dad was supposed to be. I have never felt worthy or deserving of anything in my life, and now my mother has cut me off from the family. Should I try to see if my father wants to know me now? Maybe time has mellowed him. I feel like he is a great big unfinished spot in my life. What should I do? — Alone and Unloved, Monroe, La. Dear Alone And Unloved: Life has dealt you a difficult hand through no fault of your own. You are hurting right now, and that is why I’m urging you to talk to a counselor about what you have been through and how you feel about yourself BEFORE reaching out to your father. You deserve love and nurturing, but before you try to make contact it’s important that you have more inner resources than you have now — just in case he doesn’t turn out to be the man you would like him to be. Contacting him through a third party might also be wise. Dear Abby: Before my husband died, we used to enjoy visiting with “Frank” and his wife, “Julie.” They were happy get-togethers between couples. After my husband’s death, Frank said he wanted to stay in touch. As time went on, we’d meet for holidays and home visits, which were as pleasant as before. But as time passed, Julie became bored and the visits became awkward.
DEAR ABBY Frank and I had a lot in common. I enjoyed his company more and more. Anyone who has lost the love of his/her life knows it’s a gift to take a break from the heartache once in a while. Frank and I have done nothing wrong. If he were a woman there would be no question of impropriety. I haven’t heard from Frank in a while, and I suspect it’s because Julie has requested he not spend so much time with me. I don’t blame her. I’d feel the same if it were my husband. But would it be OK for me to call him? Until recently we talked regularly. I know he’d be happy to hear my voice. Our visits were full of life and innocent conversation, and I miss them. Should I leave well enough alone, or enjoy the only peace I have had after such a great loss? — Anonymous in Colorado Dear Anonymous: Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your husband. My advice is to leave well enough alone and look for “peace” with someone who is available and will be able to provide more than good conversation. While your intentions may be innocent, your growing friendship with Frank may have begun to make his wife uncomfortable. It appears she picked up on the fact that you have grown emotionally dependent on her husband and viewed it as a threat. Alternatively, when you were all together she may have felt like a third wheel, and that’s why she became bored. So please take what I have said to heart and back off.

Harry Connick Jr. steals ‘Idol’ show By Lisa de Moraes The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — Though actor-singer Jamie Foxx is the latest alleged frontrunner to replace Simon Cowell as topjudge on “American Idol,” the producers actually found the right guy for the gig during Tuesday night’s show. The question is, did they notice? Harry Connick Jr. stole the show — and maybe the franchise — when he not only mentored the remaining five Idolettes, but also did the arrangements for their songs, saving them from the singing competition’s usual hit-ormiss orchestrations. And, as if that weren’t enough, Connick got behind the keyboards and played backup for each performance, the challenge this time being for each singer to croon a Frank Sinatra tune. Connick, a.k.a. New Blue Eyes, treated his “Idol” gig as seriously as jury duty, in marked contrast to all those drive-by mentors who spent as little time as possible in the company of the Idolettes, preferring to simply use them as props for albumplugging. Foxx tops this list, too. Turns out, Connick’s also very funny — unscripted funny, that is, as opposed to new judge Ellen DeGeneres’ canned-corn cracks. This was not lost on Ellen the Generous, who spewed Connick digs throughout the show in a effort to keep up, calling his piano-playing a little pitchy during one number and nyuk-nyukking that she got “distracted by Harry’s organ” after another. “What I’m trying to do is feature the contestants by writing a supportive arrangement,” Connick said during a taped bit in which he was seen at the ivories, tickling

“American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest, right, stands with guest mentor Harry Connick Jr. during the show’s broadcast Tuesday. out one of the arrangements for Tuesday’s performance show. “I should be lying by the pool. Do you think Shania Twain was up in here doing this?” he asked about last week’s phone-it-in mentor. Props to Connick for the first cross-mentor snipe in “Idol” history. And, by the way, for actually watching the show and knowing who was the previous week’s mentor — you think quasi-mentor Usher knew he followed quasimentor Miley Cyrus? Me neither. The five down-to-the-wire Idolettes — Aaron Kelly, Casey James, Michael Lynche, Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze — couldn’t stop talking about how funny, helpful, available and downright heroic Connick was, after the steady trail of see-yawouldn’t-wanna-be-ya mentors to whom they’d been subjected. During his time with DeWyze in rehearsal, Connick confided that his wife thinks DeWyze is “really cute.” “He looks like a new and improved version of me,” Connick joked, then said to DeWyze, “I’m not saying you’re hot,” while DeWyze giggled. “That sounds awesome, man!” Connick told DeWyze after rehearsing with him.

“Not really!” Connick mouthed to the camera, while they guy-hugged “The guy’s full of jokes — he’s funny, cool, down-to-earth and more than willing to help,” DeWyze said of Connick on Tuesday’s show. “Immediately, when you walk into the room, he cracks a joke, and any worries you have are gone,” gushed Kelly. “He’s hilarious, and I couldn’t stop laughing all the time — which is great because I’m so freakin’ nervous,” James told the camera. Foxx, meanwhile, was downright mean and dismissive to the Idolettes last season. His idea of mentoring Danny Gokey, for in-
stance, involved putting his face literally inches from Gokey’s, and insisting he was only spaceinvading to bring Gokey’s performance to its “purest” and “truest” state, though the evidence showed it only convinced Gokey, and viewers, that Foxx was a head case. And, of course, Foxx’s “Idol” drive-by mentoring last season came about a couple weeks after he’d gone on his satellite radio show and suggested that the then-16-year-old pop star Miley Cyrus “make a sex tape and grow up,” “get like Britney Spears and do some heroin,” “do like Lindsay Lohan ... and get some crack in your pipe,” and “catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat.” (Foxx later explained to NBC’s “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno about the comments that he, Foxx, is a “comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don’t mean any of it.”) But Foxx’s drive-by was most notable for the nanosecond he spent with Adam Lambert, in which he said in a state of shock, “Absolutely incredible! You don’t care about who I am at all!” Tuesday night, in an uncharacteristic spurt of savviness, show host Ryan Seacrest deputized Connick as the Fifth Judge after Casey James gave his historically bad performance of “Blue Skies.” “I think you sang it better in rehearsal, to be honest,” Connick told Casey. “You killed it about two hours ago — but that’s not going to help you now!”

Roads Continued from B1 From Mendocino on, the classic Highway 1 didn’t disappoint, with massive rocks lancing over the crashing ocean below. Unlike the road near Santa Barbara and Big Sur, traffic was scant. We were making for the Lost Coast, the spectacular stretch north of Fort Bragg that is mostly inaccessible and undeveloped. In the mid-1900s, rather than facing the cost of continuing Highway 1 over rugged terrain like a 4,000-foot mountain, engineers gave up and turned the road inland, where it meets its demise by linking up with Highway 101. The miles between are the Lost Coast. The area’s best base is Shelter Cove, a seaside village that time has forgotten. Reachable only by a sketchy mountain road, it has desolate beaches and limitless hiking trails. Driver’s note: The inland stretch of Highway 1 leading to the 101 is superb — one of the smoothest, curliest patches of road I’ve ever encountered. Not a single RV, either.
In search of coils One way of sniffing for squiggly stretches to test that new Porsche is to check road maps for names that include “canyon” or “skyline.” Another is to follow local motorcyclists. Imagine, then, if there was a place where the nation’s motorcyclists converge to test their mettle. There is, called the “Tail of the Dragon.” The infamous Tail is an 11mile section of U.S. Route 129 near the border of Tennessee and Georgia. It has more than 300 difficult corners through steep and forested backcountry. Bikers and driving enthusiasts make pilgrimages to try it. The speed limit is 30 mph because of the dangerous curves and chronic speeders. Nearly every year, there are multiple fatalities. Caution is tantamount, but even when driving slowly the rhythm is beguiling — a masterpiece of road engineering.
If that’s too intense, make for the nearby Cherohala Skyway, which gains some 4,000 feet of elevation along the Unicoi mountains — the views are unbelievable and the sweeping corners a joy.
Rural routes As a native of New Mexico, I’d be remiss not to mention one of the best drives in the Southwest. Most tourists land in Albuquerque and travel to Santa Fe and its northern neighbor Taos by the quickest route, Interstate 25. Mistake. Rather, explore centuries-old Hispanic villages, Indian pueblos and former mining towns by a series of rural routes through the sun-soaked high desert. Negotiate from Albuquerque to Santa Fe by way of the Turquoise Trail, which swings around the Sandia Mountains and through the hippie town of Madrid. Then pick up the High Road, some 80 miles of rural routes that connect Santa Fe and Taos via the top of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. I’m not sure which I love best: the double lanes running precariously at the edge of the world; the glorious light that has attracted artists from Frederic Remington to Georgia O’Keeffe; or the villages like Chimayo and Las Trampas, which seem straight out of a magical-realism novel by Gabriel García Márquez. The first time I drove the scary tracks was in my teens, on a driver’s permit (sorry, Mom!). I recently revisited in a topless Chevy Corvette, where I could smell the piñon trees and fully experience the explosion of crimsons and violets as the sun set. Glorious and, yep, pretty magical. García Márquez would approve. I could talk, too, of Chief Joseph Scenic Highway in Wyoming, or Route 100 through Vermont. Or even of my colleague’s secret L.A. county road and my own special drives an hour outside of New York City. But I don’t want to give away all my secrets. Buy me a few Jamesons and I just might spill. Maybe.

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, May 8, 2010: This year, expand your circle of friends. Use the same process with work. You might have been dreaming of a major change in your life. The time has come to act on it rather than wish. The timing will be excellent before and after the summer. If you are single and you are ready for a committed relationship, you might meet someone who could give you what you want. If you are attached, the two of you work as a team, socialize more and simply enjoy your life together. PISCES can be changeable but always remains a friend. 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) HHHH Your fiery style emerges. Find an outlet other than the obvious. Take a walk or get into a demanding project. Confusion surrounds a talk or meeting. Confirm how, what and where. Tonight: Don’t fuss. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Keep zeroing in on what you feel is essential. You have pushed and pulled to get someone’s time and attention. A conversation might not be easy, but it will be easier after a relaxing meal together. Tonight: You just might have a reason to celebrate. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Many people demand a lot of your time and attention. Perhaps you have a project that demands
extra attention. Don’t forget an older friend or relative who your visits and calls mean the world to. Know that anything can happen if you relax. Tonight: A must appearance. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Take off for a day trip if you can. Sometimes just going for a drive can refresh your mind and energize your spirit. Opt for change and a different setting. Make today a mini vacation. Tonight: Keep the theme different. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Relate to others on a oneon-one level. Groups simply don’t feel right right now. A friend or loved one could be quite taken aback by your opinions. Think before you say something outrageous or for effect. Tonight: Dinner at a romantic spot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH If you had a fantasy of a calm, quiet day, you can toss it to the wind. Others come toward you. Be careful with some repressed feelings that you have been sitting on. Someone could actually make you blush with a compliment! Tonight: Just don’t be alone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Understanding evolves, especially if you don’t trigger anymore conversation past the initial one. Sometimes the process or rehashing a talk in your mind can serve you well. Try to walk in another person’s footsteps. Tonight: Don’t choose anything that would make you stress out. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Others enjoy your intensity and emotional dimension. A child loves to be the center of
your attention! Another loved one and a friend could desire the same. The key today is to know which side your bread is buttered on. Tonight: Lighten up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Stay close to home if possible. You can decide to throw a party if you’re bored, but you also can sit in the garden and read a good book. Allow yourself the luxury of not making plans. An even pace works. Tonight: You don’t have to go far! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH Communication excels. You might be able to warm up a difficult person with a caring gesture or simply by pitching in in whatever this person is doing. Understand what your focus and goals are. Perhaps saying nothing might be better. Tonight: Invite friends to join you for dinner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Your need to let someone know you care could lead to extravagance, especially if you started with the thought of choosing a token of affection. You also might be unusually vulnerable to purchasing something for yourself, too. Tonight: Curb any wild risks. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH You certainly feel energized, though distracted. Get your to-do list done ASAP. You will enjoy yourself nearly anywhere, but close to home feels great. You cannot stop someone from acting on his or her feelings. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. © 2009 by King Features Syndicate
