Loophole in parking downtown could be called fraud City says it may end validation program because of abuse

Foreigners snag forest stimulus jobs Oregon companies respond: We can’t find qualified locals By Keith Chu The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — Even as unemployment rates remain high across Central and Eastern Oregon, the state’s forest contractors are importing foreign workers —

and using them on federal stimulus contracts that were designed to boost local economies. The 2009 stimulus law — the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — allows federal agencies to award contracts to

companies that use foreign labor on the jobs, even though the measure was largely intended to provide a short-term boost in U.S. employment. Just under $13 million in U.S. Forest Service contracts have been awarded to

date to Oregon companies using seasonal foreign workers, according to an analysis by The Bulletin of federal visa and contract records. For their part, the companies importing workers say the foreigners work harder and faster than local applicants and are willing to do jobs the locals don’t want.

Archaeology at Paisley Caves: Who was here first?

U.K. poised to break up centralized health care

By Nick Grube The Bulletin

Bend’s downtown business owners and employees have found yet another loophole in the city’s parking regulations, and it’s one that could be construed as fraud under the municipal code. The problem lies with a validation program that allows someone who received a parking ticket to have the $22 fine overturned if that individual can prove with a dated receipt that he or she spent at least $10 while in downtown Bend. Downtown business owners and employees cannot participate in this program — even if they were shopping somewhere they don’t work at or own — but that hasn’t kept them from trying. According to figures released by the city, of the 1,630 citations submitted for validation since the program began in May 2009, 358 have been rejected. A majority of these rejections, city officials say, are attributed to business owners and employees attempting to validate their own parking tickets. “This is Bend trying to be really creative, and it’s just not working,” City Manager Eric King said. “It’s kind of gotten out of hand.” The city estimates the cost to the parking fund to enforce and administer the validation program is $65,000 annually. This figure includes unrealized revenue from overturning citations. While city staff likes the fact that the validation program can give visitors to the shopping district a positive impression of the city, there’s a possibility the practice will be discontinued because of what Bend Downtown Manager Jeff Datwyler calls “rampant abuse.” See Parking / A7

The team of archaeologists had found another dried-out piece of poop, thousands of years after an animal — or possibly one of the first human inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere — made a pit stop in the Paisley Caves. University of Oregon archaeologist Dennis Jenkins and his team are excavating the Southern Oregon cliffside caves, searching for evidence of the original Americans. And while they have found obsidian flakes used to make tools, snippets of cord and bones from extinct animals, it’s ancient human feces, called coprolites by archaeologists, that has provided the earliest DNA evidence of humans in the New World. “This site is highly controversial,” Jenkins said. “We have found evidence here, DNA and coprolites, that (demonstrates) people were here 14,300 years ago.” See Paisley / A8

LONDON — Perhaps the only consistent thing about Britain’s socialized health care system is that it is in a perpetual state of flux, its structure constantly changing as governments search for the elusive formula that will deliver the best care for the cheapest price while costs and demand escalate. Even as the new coalition government said it would make enormous cuts in the public sector, it initially promised to leave health care alone. In one of its most surprising moves so far, it has done the opposite, proposing what would be the most radical reorganization of the National Health Service — a system derided by critics of socialized medicine during the recent reform debate in the U.S. — since its inception in 1948. Practical details of the plan are still sketchy, but its aim is clear: to shift control of England’s $160 billion annual health budget from a centralized bureaucracy to doctors at the local level.

In an effort to starve rebels in the depths of Africa of funds and encourage them to lay down their arms, a new U.S. law requires companies to certify whether their products contain minerals from rebel-controlled mines in Congo and surrounding countries.

Furthermore, they say, it could deprive hundreds of thousands of desperately poor Congolese of their incomes and disrupt the economy of an area that’s struggling for stability after more than a decade of war. “For many, many people, it’s the only livelihood they have,” said Sara Geenen, a researcher at the University of Antwerp in Belgium, who just returned from a trip to the Kivu provinces in eastern Congo.

NEW ORLEANS — Crews hurried to get back to work on plugging BP’s leaky oil well Saturday after Tropical Storm Bonnie fizzled, and engineers hoped for a window of clear weather long enough to stop the gusher for good. But with peak hurricane season starting in early August, chances are the next big storm is right on Bonnie’s heels. “We’re going to be playing a cat-and-mouse game for the remainder of the hurricane season,” retired Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said Saturday. Sure enough, another disturbance already was brewing in the Caribbean, although forecasters said it wasn’t likely to strengthen into “We’re going a tropical storm. to be playing a In the past 10 years, an aver- cat-and-mouse age of five named storms have game for the hit the Gulf each hurricane remainder of season.

By then, worries about the storm had pushed back efforts to solidly seal the well by at least a week, said Allen, the government’s point man on the spill and a veteran of the Coast Guard’s rescue mission after Hurricane Katrina. Completion now looks possible by mid-August.

Has oil stopped leaking? Even though the evacuation turned out to be short-lived, it revealed one important fact: BP and the federal government are increasingly sure the temporary plug that has mostly contained the oil for eight days will hold. They didn’t lose the cap — even when they thought they’d lose sight of it during the evacuation, although in the end, the real-time cameras that have given the world a constant view of the ruptured well never stopped rolling. Ironically, the storm may even have a positive effect. Churning waters could actually help dissipate oil in the water, spreading out the surface slick and breaking up tar balls, said Jane Lubchenco, leader of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Beaches may look cleaner in some areas as the storm surge pulls oil away, though other areas could see more oil washed ashore.

Another wave of oppressive heat clamped down on a broad swath of Eastern states Saturday, with temperatures in the high 90s and 100s, and residents scrambling for shade or just staying indoors. In the Mid-Atlantic, already the locus for brutal temperatures several times in July, weather experts warned of the dangerous conditions, and residents resigned themselves to coping with the discomfort. “Oh, it’s disgusting. It’s already really hot,” meteorologist Heather Sheffield of the National Weather Service said of morning temperatures in Washington, D.C. One possible weather-related death was reported in Maryland. With the heat and humidity combining for a possible heat index of over 110 degrees, the weather service issued an excessive heat warning for the first time this year for an area stretching from south of Washington to north of Baltimore. By midday Saturday, a wide band from lower New England to the Deep South was under a heat advisory. Even as a tropical storm visited Florida, and California continued its strange cold streak, in much of the East a Bermuda High was pushing weekend temperatures beyond 100 and humidity beyond the tolerable. It is not that any one day has set an all-time heat record, but a large area of the country has been assaulted by a succession of heat waves. Washington in June recorded the highest average temperature for the month since record keeping began in 1871 — including 18 days of 90 degrees or more. July is on its way to a similar unwelcome record. As temperatures soared toward 100 degrees in New Jersey, Harry Oliver was trying to make sense of it all as he waited to get sandwiches inside a Toms River convenience store. “When I complain about the heat and humidity, my wife reminds me that I was begging for this type of weather when I was shoveling all that

Rains flood Chicago, breach dam in Iowa

New York Times News Service

Standing water on freeways in Chicago turned what should have been an easy Saturday morning drive into a soggy, snarled mess after heavy rains across the Midwest closed roads, stranded residents and punched a hole through an Iowa dam. Officials say more than 7 inches of rain fell early Saturday, inundating the sewer system and overwhelming waterways. In eastern Iowa, the Lake Delhi dam failed as rising floodwater from the Maquoketa River ate a 30-foot-wide hole in the earthen dam, causing water to drop 45 feet to the river below and threatening the small town of Hopkinton. Evacuation orders followed heavy rain that pushed the river to 23.92 feet — more than 2 feet above its previous record in 2004. — The Associated Press snow this past winter,” the 47-year-old Lakehurst resident said. “Now I’m looking forward to the snow again.” This blanket of heat seems to be part of a global trend. So far, 2010 is on track to overtake 2005 as the warmest year ever recorded for the planet, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. (In Germany, a french fry crisis is looming: The length of fries may decline by nearly half an inch because heat and drought have cut the harvest of larger potatoes, Reuters reported.) But even the summer of 2010 cannot compare to the hottest year of all, said Stephen Fybish, a weather historian in New York. In a class by itself, he said, was the Dust Bowl summer of 1936, when 15 states set records for heat that stand to this day.

LOS ANGELES — Among the pleasures of living in Southern California, none may be as wonderful as the climate, and the ability of residents to use it as a meteorological bat against the collective heads of their fellow Americans. When there are snowstorms elsewhere, people here go tide pooling; when humidity soaks the East, Angelenos repose at 75 degrees. Never had this chasm been more acute than during this unusually cool summer in Southern California, where people wrapped themselves in light sweaters as the rest of the nation tried to fry things on the sidewalks. Now, as the summer lurches toward August with barely a warm weekend to its name — to say nothing of the almost-unheard-of rain — people here are actually grumpy about their climes. “I actually wish I were on the East Coast,” said Caitlin Pence, 24, who lives in Manhattan Beach, in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. “It is so miserable here, I don’t really want to do anything. It’s like seriously, actually, genuinely depressing.” The average temperature at Los Angeles International Airport in July so far has been 66.4 degrees, or 2.4 degrees below normal. This followed an unusually cool June — generally the dreariest month in Los Angeles. Further, there have been traces of rain four days this month, which for Los Angeles is something akin to a frost in Miami in September. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service forecasts a hotter-thannormal August.

Guard, Reserve suicides rising McClatchy-Tribune News Service Suicides among Army and Air National Guard and Reserve troops have spiked this year, and the military is at a loss to explain why. During the first six months of 2010, 65 members of the Guard and Reserve took their own lives, compared with 42 for the same period in 2009. The grim tally is further evidence that suicides continue to plague the military even though it’s stepped up prevention efforts. The Army recently announced that 32 soldiers, including 11 in the Guard and Reserve, took their own lives in June, a rate of one a day and a level not seen since the Vietnam War, according to the military. Seven of the suicides occurred in Iraq or Afghanistan. Unlike active-duty troops, Guard members are part-time soldiers and airmen. Except for deployments, they are together for only 39 days a year for training. Some of the possible triggers for military suicides, such as multiple combat deployments, are not always factors. In Missouri, for example, only two of the six who committed suicide this year had served in Iraq or Afghanistan, both in 2005. Only one had been deployed previously, in 1991. Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Patty Murray of Washington introduced legislation in May that would require the Defense Department to embed mental health counselors in all National Guard and Reserve units.

Two missing U.S. service members spark massive Afghan search By Deb Riechmann The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — An epic fight is brewing over what Congress and President Barack Obama should do about the expiring Bush tax cuts, with such substantial economic and political consequences that it could shape the fall elections and fiscal policy for years to come. Democratic leaders, including Obama, say they are intent on letting the tax cuts for the wealthy expire at the end of this year. But they have pledged to continue the lower tax rates for

Most Republicans want to extend the tax cuts for everyone, and some Democrats agree, saying it would be unwise to raise

taxes on anyone while the economy remains weak. If no action is taken, taxes on income, dividends, capital gains and estates would all rise. The issue has generated little public attention this year as Congress grappled with health care, financial regulation, energy, a Supreme Court nomination and other divisive topics. But it will move to the top of the agenda when lawmakers return to Washington in September from their summer recess, just as the midterm campaign gets under way in earnest. In recent days,

intense discussions have begun at the Capitol. Beyond the implications for family checkbooks, the tax fight will serve as a proxy for the bigger political clashes of the year, including the size of government and the best way of handling the tepid economic recovery. “It has enormous ramifications for the fall and clearly will be one of the dominant issues,” said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. “This is code for the role of the federal government, the debate over the size of government and the priorities of the nation.”

A Tibetan man removes his shoe to strike a passing Han Chinese man on his bicycle in 2008 on a street in Lhasa, the regional capital of Tibet, China. Since the violence of 2008, Chinese leaders have turned to development and an effort to make the area more Chinese.

China’s plan to pacify Tibet: Send money and migrants By Edward Wong New York Times News Service

LHASA, Tibet — They come by new high-altitude trains, four a day, cruising 1,200 miles past snow-capped mountains. And they come by military truck convoy, lumbering across the roof of the world. Han Chinese workers, investors, merchants, teachers and soldiers are pouring into remote Tibet. After the violence that ravaged this region in 2008, China’s aim is to make Tibet wealthier — and more Chinese. Chinese leaders see development, along with an enhanced security presence, as the key to pacifying the Buddhist region. The central government invested $3 billion in the Tibet Autonomous Region last year, a 31 percent increase over 2008. Tibet’s gross domestic product is growing at a 12 percent annual rate, faster than the robust Chinese national average. Simple restaurants located in white prefabricated houses and run by ethnic Han businesspeople who take the train have sprung up even at a remote lake north of Lhasa. About 1.2 million rural Tibetans, nearly 40 percent of the region’s population, have been moved into new residences under a “comfortable housing” program. And officials promise to increase tourism




fourfold by 2020, to 20 million visitors a year. But if the influx of money and people has brought new prosperity, it has also deepened the resentment among many Tibetans. Migrant Han entrepreneurs elbow out Tibetan rivals, then return home for the winter after reaping profits. Large Han-owned companies dominate the main industries, from mining to construction to tourism. “Why did I come here? To make money, of course!” said Xiong Zhahua, a migrant from Sichuan province who spends five months a year running a restaurant on the shores of chilly Nam Tso, the lake north of Lhasa. A rare five-day official tour of Tibet, though carefully managed by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, provided a glimpse of life in the region during a

period of tight political and military control. Tibet is more stable after security forces quelled the worst uprising against Chinese rule in five decades. But the increased ethnic Han presence — and the uneven benefits of Han-led investment — have kept the region on edge. Some Chinese officials acknowledge the disenfranchisement of Tibetans, though they defend the right of Han to migrate here. “The flow of human resources follows the rule of market economics and is also indispensable for the development of Tibet,” Hao Peng, vice chairman and deputy party secretary of the region, said at a news conference with a small group of foreign journalists. But the current system “may have caused an imbalanced distribution,” he said. “We are taking measures to solve this problem.”

LAS VEGAS — President Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders appealed to a gathering of prominent liberal activists Saturday, seeking to win back a disenchanted constituency that appears uninterested in helping the party avoid large losses in November’s midterm elections. In a videotaped speech at the annual Netroots Nation convention, Obama acknowledged that for many Americans, “change hasn’t come fast enough.” He said he shared that frustration, but he asked liberals to stick with him and the party. “Change is hard, but if we’ve learned anything these past 18 months, it’s that change is possible,” Obama said, adding, “Let’s finish what we’ve started.” Even so, some of the 2,100 liberal activists gathered here for a three-day conference were stewing over the Obama agenda and said they would do little to protect Democratic majorities in Congress. “There’s a lot of Democrats I’ll be happy to see go,” said Markos Moulitsas, who founded the convention five years ago as an offshoot of his Daily Kos blog. “There is a price to be paid for inaction and incompetence. We’re not getting much done with 59 (Democratic senators), so if we’re down to 54, who cares?” The liberal Netroots movement grew up fighting former President George W. Bush, and in 2008, progressives succeeded in helping push the Republican Party out of power. But the movement’s leaders complain that their efforts have not been rewarded.

WASHINGTON — The nation’s farmers could face severe restrictions on the use of pesticides as environmentalists want the courts to force federal regulators to protect endangered species from the ill effects of agricultural chemicals. A ruling eight years ago by a federal judge in Seattle required the National Marine Fisheries Service and the Environmental Protection Agency to review whether 54 pesticides, herbicides and fungicides were jeopardizing troubled West Coast salmon runs. The agencies moved recently to restrict the use of three of the chemicals, including a widely used one with the trade name Sevin, near bodies of water that flow into salmon-bearing streams, and they’re considering restrictions on 12 additional chemicals. The Washington State Department of Agriculture says such restrictions would prevent pesticide use on 75 percent of the state’s farmland. A federal judge in California has issued a similar ruling that involves 11 endangered and threatened species and 75 pesticides in the San Francisco Bay area. Rather than continuing to file piecemeal lawsuits, the Center for Biological Diversity says it will file a broader suit this summer that involves nearly 400 pesticides and almost 900 species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. Washington state officials said the restrictions that could result from that lawsuit could affect agricultural production significantly in at least 48 states. Dan Newhouse, the director of the Washington State Department of Agriculture, who farms hops, apples, cherries and other row crops on 600 irrigated acres in the Yakima Valley, said that if the courts ordered far-reaching restrictions, “farmers across the country will have significantly fewer tools at their disposal to manage plant pests and disease.” The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization has estimated that 20 to 40 percent of global crop production is lost annually because of weeds, pests and disease.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Two U.S. Navy service members disappeared in a dangerous area of eastern Afghanistan, prompting a massive air and ground search and appeals on local radio stations for their safe return, NATO and Afghan officials said. The two left their compound in the Afghan capital, Kabul, in a vehicle Friday afternoon, but never returned, NATO said in a statement. Vehicles and helicopters were dispatched to search for the two, who may have been killed or captured by the Taliban after getting lost in Charkh district of southern Logar province, said district chief Samer Gul. Elsewhere Saturday, five U.S. troops died in separate bombings in the south, setting July on course to become the deadliest month of the nearly nine-year war for Americans. Rising casualties are eroding support for the war even as President Barack Obama has sent thousands of reinforcements to try to turn back the Taliban, who would have a leg up in the propaganda war with the capture of two U.S. troops. A NATO official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of search operations, confirmed the two were Navy personnel, but would not identify their unit to avoid jeopardizing search operations.

GOP’s lessons from Britain’s Tories By Dan Balz The Washington Post

British Prime Minister David Cameron’s recent visit to Washington offered a reminder of the moment of truth looming for the Republican Party. Cameron sits atop a new coalition government that is taking tough and controversial action to reduce Britain’s sizable budget deficit. He is also a conservative politician with a modernizing bent who has sought to make his party more relevant to modern Britain. Republican leaders in this country would say they share those goals and ambitions. But Cameron has few genuine imitators among his fellow conservatives on this side of the Atlantic. At a time when he has shown flexibility by keeping his eye fixed as much on the center as on the right, most Republicans are worrying more about the right than the center. Given the political climate in this country, that may seem the wisest course. The real energy in the electorate exists largely on the right — most intensely within the tea party movement. Republican leaders have been scrambling to stay abreast of this movement since it began to take hold more than a year ago. Their hope is that by doing so, they will gain a decisive edge in November and score gains in the House, the Senate and the governors’ mansions.

Anti-Obama wave The state of the economy has created a sour, anxious mood in the country. The massive deficit, which the Obama administration estimated Friday would hit $1.4 trillion again next year, has stirred a small-government backlash. Barack Obama’s policies, symbolized by the new health care law, have intensified those sentiments, not only among the GOP’s conservative base but also among many independent voters. Britain’s Conservative Party spent 13 years in the political wilderness after the Margaret Thatcher and John Major governments.

A N A LY S I S Prime Minister David Cameron sought to smooth the perceived harsh edges of conservatism — or at least convince voters he was trying to do so. ... Republicans have done little of either. Its multiple electoral losses forced a succession of leadership changes and ultimately a major rethinking under Cameron when he became leader almost five years ago. In the U.S., Republicans never assumed they would be back contending for power this quickly after their losses in 2006 and 2008. That they are now in a position to take back the House, and possibly the Senate, has, some contend, robbed them of the period of self-reflection and renewal that all major parties must undergo from time to time. Cameron sought to smooth the perceived harsh edges of conservatism — or at least convince voters he was trying to do so. Some of it was purely symbolic, but some was real. Republicans have done little of either. Because of the polarization around Obama’s presidency, Republicans have, if anything, brushed aside debates about how far is too far right. Their intellectual energy has gone into deconstructing Obama’s policies, not examining their own weaknesses. Republicans are debating how much they should reveal about their ideas and priorities before November. Some want to lay out a platform or program. Others contend that is both unnecessary and foolish. Why not simply ride the anti-Obama wave and worry about what to do later? In Britain, Cameron’s party won the most seats in the national elections in May, but not an outright majority. That was a reminder that,

however much the voters had tired of the Labour Party and its leader, Gordon Brown, they still had reservations about the Tories. Every reputable poll showing Obama in trouble this year has carried as its subtext the message that voters trust Republicans even less.

Attacking the deficit, in the U.K. and the U.S. Cameron fought his campaign on a platform to attack the deficit — in more detail than Republicans are offering so far in this election. Once he formed his new government with the Liberal Democrats, he attacked the deficit vigorously — but also with more flexibility than GOP leaders are showing. Having resisted the kind of no-taxes pledge common among conservatives here, Cameron constructed a deficit-reduction package that includes about $1 in additional taxes for every $3 in spending cuts. What will Republicans do next year if they hold power in the House or are close enough to a majority to force Obama into genuine negotiations over the budget? Cutting spending will be their first priority, but will they also insist on extending George W. Bush’s tax cuts even for the wealthiest Americans without an offsetting reduction in spending? Another test could come when Obama’s debt and deficit commission issues its recommendations late this year. Erskine Bowles, the co-chairman of the commission, recently said Cameron’s budgetary mix was an attractive formula. Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee and a member of the commission, said Thursday on ABC’s “Top Line” program that he would be open to a package built along those lines. He said spending cuts should make up by far the biggest share of the commission’s package, but added, “I think it’s likely that there will have to be a revenue component.” Whether others in his party share Gregg’s analysis may not be known until next year.

Britain Continued from A1 Under the plan, $100 billion to $125 billion a year would be meted out to general practitioners, who would use the money to buy services from hospitals and other health care providers. The plan would also shrink the bureaucratic apparatus, in keeping with the government’s goal to effect $30 billion in “efficiency savings” in the health budget by 2014 and to reduce administrative costs by 45 percent. Tens of thousands of jobs would be lost because layers of bureaucracy would be abolished.

How the British health system works In a document outlining the plan, the government admitted the changes would “cause significant disruption and loss of jobs.” But it said: “The current architecture of the health system has developed piecemeal, involves duplication and is unwieldy. Liberating the NHS, and putting power in the hands of patients and clinicians, means we will be able to effect a radical simplification, and remove layers of management.” The health secretary, Andrew Lansley, also promised to put more power in the hands of patients. Currently, how and where patients are treated, and by whom, is largely determined by decisions made by 150 entities known as primary care trusts — all of which would be abolished under the plan, with some of those choices going to patients. It would also abolish many current government-set targets, like limits on how long patients have to wait for treatment. The plan, with many elements that need legislative approval to be enacted, applies only to England; other parts of Britain have separate systems. The government announced the proposals this month. Reactions to them range from pleased to highly skeptical. Many critics say the plans are far too ambitious, particularly in the short period of time allotted, and they doubt that general practitioners are the right people to decide how the health care budget should be spent. Currently, the 150 primary care trusts make most of those decisions. Under the proposals, general practitioners would band together in regional consortia to buy services from hospitals and other providers. It is likely that many such groups would have to spend money to hire outside managers to manage their budgets and negotiate with the providers, thus canceling out some of the savings.

The new British government’s plan to drastically reshape the socialized health care system would put local physicians like Dr. Marita Koumettou in north London in control of much of the national health budget. David Furness, head of strategic development at the Social Market Foundation, a study group, said that under the plan, every general practitioner in London would, in effect, be responsible for a $3.4 million budget. “It’s like getting your waiter to manage a restaurant,” Furness said. “The government is saying that GPs know what the patient wants, just the way a waiter knows what you want to eat. But a waiter isn’t necessarily any good at ordering stock, managing the premises, talking to the chef.” But advocacy groups for general practitioners welcomed the proposals. “One of the great attractions of this is that it will be able to focus on what local people need,” said professor Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, which represents about 40,000 of the 50,000 general practitioners in the country. “This is about clinicians taking responsibility for making these decisions.” The plan would also require all National Health Service hospitals to become “foundation trusts,” enterprises that are independent of health service control and accountable to an independent regulator (some hospitals currently operate in this fashion). This would result in a further loss of jobs, health care unions say, and also open the door to further privatization of the service.

Affecting care? The government has promised that the new plan will not affect patient care and that the health care budget will not be cut. But some experts say those assertions are misleading. The previous government, controlled by the Labour Party, poured money into the health service — the budget is now about three times what it was when Labour took over, in 1997


— but the increases have stopped. The government has said the budget will continue to rise in real terms for the next five years, but it is unlikely that the increases will keep up with the rising costs of care and the demands of an aging population. “The real mistake that is being made by the health secretary is to drive through an ideologically determined program of reorganization, which is motivated by the principle of efficiency savings,” said Robin Durie, a senior lecturer in politics at the University of Exeter. “History shows clearly that quality will suffer as a consequence.” For example, he asked, how will the government make good on its promise to give patients more choice — a promise that seems to require a degree of administrative oversight — while cutting so many managers from the system? Dr. Richard Vautrey, deputy chairman of the general practitioner committee at the British Medical Association, said the country needed to have a “mature debate about what the NHS can and cannot afford.” He said: “It is a sign of the mixed messages that government sends out. They talk about choice and competition and increased patient expectations at the same time as they tell the service they need to cut costs and refer less and prescribe less. People need to understand that while the needs of everyone may be met, their wants will be limited.” As they prepare for the change, many doctors are wondering whether it will be permanent this time around. “Many of our colleagues have seen this cycle of change repeatedly,” Vautrey said. “Many would look at previous reorganizations and compare it to this one, and wonder how long the current change will last before the next one comes along.”

No BP-Lockerbie deal, U.K. repeats The Associated Press LONDON — The decision by Scottish authorities to release the only person convicted of the deadly bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie was “wrong and misguided,” but there’s no evidence to suggest that Abdel Baset al-Megrahi was returned to Libya in return for lucrative oil deals for BP or others, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said in a letter to U.S. officials. Hague’s letter to Sen. John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was released by the Foreign Office on Saturday. The correspondence comes ahead of a hearing this week in Washington about the 1988 bombing.

Mass graves unearthed in Mexico Drivers on prescription drugs: New York Times News Service MEXICO CITY — In one of the more macabre discoveries of Mexico’s drug wars, soldiers have found at least 51 bodies dumped in mass graves after what appeared to be a series of executions by drug gangs in northern Mexico. The bodies were buried in several graves scattered over an area

the size of three soccer fields in an isolated zone east of the city of Monterrey. Soldiers received an anonymous tip Thursday. Alejandro Garza y Garza, prosecutor for the state of Nuevo Leon, told local news media Saturday that investigators were nearing the end of their search. Many of the dead, he said, appeared to

have been burned or tortured. Officials said it appeared the victims — 48 men and three women — had been dead about 15 days. The area around Monterrey, Mexico’s industrial capital and an important site for American investors, has become a central battleground in the country’s drug wars over the past 18 months.

A miner sifts through sand and smashed rocks, searching for gold, in Mongbwalu, Congo, in 2005. A new U.S. law requires companies to certify whether their products contain minerals from rebel-controlled mines in several African countries.

Electronics Continued from A1 At issue are three industrial metals — tin, tantalum and tungsten — and gold. Tin is used in the solder that joins electronic components together. Tantalum’s main use is in capacitors, a vital component in electronics. Tungsten has many uses, including light-bulb filaments and the heavy, compact mass that makes cell phones vibrate. Exports of these metals from eastern Congo have been the subject of a campaign by nonprofit advocacy groups for a few years, one that’s borne fruit with the addition of a “Conflict Minerals” provision to the financial overhaul that President Barack Obama signed into law Wednesday. A recent YouTube video modeled after Apple Inc.’s well-known ads is titled “I’m a Mac ... and I’ve Got a Dirty Secret.” (The video says “a lot” of the world production of the four metals comes from Congo, though the contribution is relatively small.) While Congo has vast reserves, poverty and war mean most of the mining and processing is done by hand, so production is slow. The country produced 5 percent of the world’s tin supply in 2008, according to metal research institute ITRI. The figure for tantalum ore, a rarer mineral, is higher, but the main sources for world supply are in Brazil and Australia. Even though Congo’s production is small by world standards, the minerals constitute much of the economic activity in eastern Congo.

How much is mining to blame? Advocacy groups, the United Nations and academic researchers such as Geenen agree the mines fund rebel groups, homegrown militias and rogue elements of the Congolese army. But the academics say the advocacy groups have been overselling the link between the mines and violence, such as when John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, told “60 Minutes” last year that minerals are the “root cause” of the fighting. “The fight is not a fight over the minerals,” said Laura Seay, an assistant professor of political science at Morehouse College in Atlanta, who studies and visits Con-

go. “The minerals are used to fund some of the fighting, but it’s not a fight for control of the mines.” More important causes of the fighting, she said, are land rights and the status of the refugees and militias from neighboring Rwanda who flooded into eastern Congo in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. About 5 million people, mainly civilians, have died in off-and-on fighting in Congo since then, and armed groups have been accused of systematic mass rape. Sasha Lezhnev, a consultant to the Enough Project and the director of an organization that tries to rehabilitate child soldiers, agrees the fighting wasn’t originally about the minerals. But Lezhnev said that has changed. “The minerals are the chief driver and fuel for feeding the flames out in the East now. One of the main results of the military operations over the last year has been for one armed group to take control of minerals from the other armed group,” Lezhnev said. “You have many people displaced from their homes because mines are being set up.”

The new U.S. law The U.S. law doesn’t ban the minerals trade with the area, something the United Nations has avoided doing as well. Instead, it forces companies to report annually whether their products contain any of the four “conflict minerals” from Congo. The nine surrounding countries are included as well, out of concern that minerals might be smuggled out of the Congo to obfuscate their origin. If companies find they use minerals from any of the 10 countries, they need to have an audit done to determine “with the greatest possible specificity” which mine they’re from. Companies can label their products as “conflict free” if they manage to prove their products don’t contain minerals that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in any of the 10 countries. Nicholas Garrett, a consultant who’s studied the issue with funding from the British and Dutch governments, worries that companies will take the easy way out and avoid buying minerals from the region entirely — even if they are conflict free. He estimates that 1 million people are dependent on

the mining industry in eastern Congo. John Kanyoni, who represents minerals exporters in Congo’s North Kivu province, said business is already down because two major buyers of tin ore, Britain’s Amalgamated Metal Corp. and Belgium’s Traxys, have pulled out because of the “conflict minerals” campaign. That means miners, traders and the Congolese government’s tax receipts are suffering, Kanyoni said.

More harm than good? Lezhnev acknowledges that a complete pullout by minerals buyers would do more harm than good. What the Enough Project really wants, he said, is reliable tracing of the supply chain and certification of the origin of minerals. That way, buyers could still do business with legitimate mines. “We don’t want (buyers) to disengage,” he said. “We want them to take a hard look at where their materials are coming from, but also contribute to positive change out in the region.” Various groups have already started projects to trace the minerals back to their sources. The process is hampered by the lack of government control in parts of the region and by corruption where there is government control. Congolese Information Minister Lambert Mende said the government welcomes the U.S. law. It encourages the country to put in place the proper tracing mechanisms, he said. Two years ago, chip-maker Intel Corp. started to alert its tantalum smelters, who turn the ore into the metal, that they will have to start certifying that their ores don’t come from “conflict mines.” The process will add some minor costs to the supply chain, spokesman Chuck Mulloy said, on the order of a penny per part. Tin industry organization ITRI is running a pilot project to see whether the ores can be traced, but much remains to be done, especially because U.S. companies could need to certify the origin of their metals as early as next year. “It’s obviously a very difficult environment to work in,” ITRI spokeswoman Kay Nimmo said. “We need to have enough time to put the system into place. Otherwise, it essentially will be an embargo on the trade.”

dangerous, but hard to convict By Abby Goodnough and Katie Zezima New York Times News Service

The accident that killed Kathryn Underdown had all the markings of a drunken-driving case. The car that hit her as she rode her bicycle one May evening in Miller Place, N.Y., did not stop, the police said, until it crashed into another vehicle farther down the road. The driver could not keep her eyes open during an interview with investigators, according to the complaint against her, and her speech was slow and slurred. But the driver told the police she had not been drinking; instead, the complaint said, she had taken several prescription medications, including a sedative and a muscle relaxant. She was charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence — an increasingly common offense, law enforcement officials say, at a time when drunken-driving deaths are dropping and when prescriptions for narcotic painkillers, anti-anxiety medications, sleep aids and other powerful drugs are commonplace. The issue is vexing police officials because, unlike with alcohol, there is no agreement on what level of drugs in the blood impairs driving. The behavioral effects of prescription medication vary widely, depending not just on the drug but on the person taking it. Some, like anti-anxiety drugs, can dull alertness and slow reaction time; others, like stimulants, can encourage risk-taking and hurt the ability to judge distances. Mixing prescriptions, or taking them with alcohol or illicit drugs, can exacerbate impairment and sharply increase the risk of crashing, researchers say. “In the past, it was cocaine, it was PCP, it was marijuana,” said Chuck Hayes of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. “Now we’re into this prescription drug era that is giving us a whole new challenge.” The police also struggle with the challenge of prosecuting someone who was taking valid prescriptions. “How do

“How do we balance between people who legitimately need their prescriptions and protecting the public?” — Mark Neil, National Traffic Law Center we balance between people who legitimately need their prescriptions and protecting the public?” said Mark Neil, senior lawyer at the National Traffic Law Center, which works with prosecutors. “It becomes a very delicate balance.”

that states are putting hundreds of police officers through special training to spot signs of drug impairment and clamoring for better technology to detect it. In interviews, law enforcement officials around the country said anyone who drives while taking prescription drugs is at risk of arrest, not only those who drive recklessly. Defense lawyers, meanwhile, say that in their zeal to make a statement about drug-impaired driving, the police are casting too wide a net and unfairly punishing people who are taking prescriptions as directed. And persuading a jury to convict someone of impaired driving due to prescription drugs remains difficult, except for the most egregious cases.

Chemical complexities Some states have made it illegal to drive with any detectable level of prohibited drugs in the blood. But setting any kind of limit for prescription medications is far more complicated, partly because the complex chemistry of drugs makes their effects more difficult to predict than alcohol’s. And determining whether a driver took drugs soon before getting on the road can be tricky, since some linger in the body for days or weeks. Many states are confronting the problem as part of a broader effort to keep so-called drugged drivers, including those under the influence of marijuana and other illegal drugs, off the road. “We have a pretty clear message in this country that you don’t drink and drive,” said R. Gil Kerlikowske, President Barack Obama’s top drug policy adviser, who wants to reduce druggeddriving accidents by 10 percent over the next five years. “We need very much to have a similar message when it comes to drugs.” Reliable data on how many drivers are impaired by prescription drugs does not exist, but law enforcement officials say the problem is growing so quickly

Kosovo conflict resurfaces with lessons on nation-building By Peter Baker New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama’s team is busy these days managing a troop drawdown in Iraq and a troop escalation in Afghanistan, hoping in both cases to build governments that can manage their own countries. Virtually forgotten is the last such American project overseas, still incomplete but reaching a critical juncture. Before Afghanistan and Iraq, there was Kosovo, the preoccupation of Washington a decade ago but largely off the radar screen in recent times. Eleven years after NATO drove out Serbian forces and two years after Kosovo declared independence, the young nation is struggling to consolidate its position on the map and looking for American help. On Thursday, the United Nations’ highest court ruled that Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008 did not violate international law. Kosovo heralded the ruling as a victory, but legal experts warned it could spur separatist movements around the world.

(Legal experts said that while the International Court of Justice had ruled that Kosovo’s declaration of independence was legal, it had avoided saying that the state of Kosovo was legal under international law, a narrow and carefully calibrated compromise that they said could allow both sides to declare victory in a dispute that remains raw even 11 years after the war there.) Last week, Prime Minister Hashim Thaci came to Washington for perhaps Kosovo’s most important week since assuming statehood. On Wednesday, he met with Vice President Joe Biden and accepted an international loan package. And he was in town when the court handed down its ruling, a decision fraught with divisive potential in Europe. Kosovo, of course, is no Iraq or Afghanistan for all sorts of reasons. The continuing tension in the Balkans serves as a reminder of just how challenging and longlasting the American enterprise of nation-building really is. Even after the fighting is long over — and there are still about 1,480 American troops in Kosovo as part of a

A girl with the word “Kosovo” written on her forehead in Serbian Cyrillic attends a 2008 rally against Kosovo’s independence in Belgrade, Serbia. Independence was (equivocally) ruled legal last week. 9,900-member international force — the project is not really done. “Peace-building is a complicated and difficult contextual business, one that takes a good deal of time and effort,” said Daniel Serwer, a vice president at the United States Institute of Peace who hosted Thaci for a speech. “We have enough experience to know that, but we always seem to forget it.”

A land of just 1.8 million people, Kosovo was the last of the breakaway republics to emerge from the collapse of Yugoslavia and carried early lessons for the United States before its interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq about managing volatile ethnic and religious differences. Led by President Bill Clinton, NATO waged a 78-day bombing

campaign in 1999 to stop ethnic violence, expelling Serbian forces and setting up a United Nations protectorate for the largely Albanian population. In February 2008, Kosovo declared independence and has been recognized by 69 countries, including the U.S. and most of Europe, but not Serbia or Russia. Serbia sought a judgment by the International Court about the validity of the move. The anticipated court decision is advisory but could aggravate the situation. Analysts expected a murky middle-ground ruling, but Biden made clear after meeting with Thaci that Washington remained behind Kosovo. In an interview before the ruling, Thaci said, “We will respect the opinion,” but also made clear that he believed independence was irreversible. “Kosovo is a country of stability,” he said. “It’s a functional country. It’s a consolidated state. And the laws we are passing are based on international best standards.” Amid tension over ethnic Serbs living in northern Kosovo, Thaci sought help from Washington in reconciling with Serbia. “Since

the declaration of independence, Serbia has not shown any willingness to cooperate,” he said. The Serbian government blames Kosovo for being unwilling to compromise. “We’ve been a very constructive player in the region and we’re going to continue to be that,” said Vladimir Petrovic, the Serbian ambassador in Washington. “I don’t see how blaming anyone is helpful in the process. ... “We would like the United States and other players to support bringing all the sides together for a mutually agreed upon solution,” he said. All of which, of course, leaves the Obama administration in the middle, just as it already is elsewhere in the world, with no clear path to a final resolution. “It’s going to reopen the can of worms and the question is, what do you do about it?” said Alan Kuperman, a Kosovo expert at the University of Texas at Austin. Kuperman said the Obama administration should press Kosovo to grant enhanced autonomy to Serbs in its north, but “I don’t think we’re willing to talk tough to the Albanians.”

Stimulus jobs Continued from A1 Darst Atherly, owner of Atherly Contracting in Bend and Burns, said he was outbid by 50 percent on a recent federal contract by a firm using foreign labor. “I can’t compete with that,” Atherly said. American companies are allowed to recruit seasonal foreign workers for certain industries, such as seafood sorting and forest work, under the H-2B visa program. According to the Labor Department’s website, a company can recruit workers if it proves there aren’t unemployed U.S. citizens available to do the jobs and that bringing in workers won’t depress wages or worsen working conditions for U.S. workers. The program is separate from the H-2A temporary visas for farmworkers. There’s nothing new about companies importing foreign workers for low-paying, labor-intensive jobs like forest and farm work. What makes this situation unique is that the federal stimulus bill requires contractors to pay higher wages — ranging from about $12 to $22 per hour for most forest work, what’s known as a “prevailing wage” under the Service Contract and Davis-Bacon acts. Those laws set higher minimum wages for workers on certain federal contracts.

Approval process Even at those rates, however, at least eight Oregon forestry contractors this year asked to bring in foreign workers because they were unable to find U.S. labor. U.S. Labor Department and Oregon Employment Department officials said corporations currently “self-attest,” or sign a form without providing other documentation, saying that they’ve been unable to find local workers willing or qualified for jobs. Several years ago, states had some oversight of H-2B workers, but today the U.S. Labor Department has sole responsibility, said Oregon Employment Department Legislative Manager Rebecca Nance. “An H-2B employer doesn’t have to contact us like an (employer importing farmworkers) has to,”

Nance said. “They can place their own job listing and self-attest to the outcome.” Labor Department spokesman Michael Trupo wrote in an e-mail that the department audits some applications to ensure they’re meeting federal requirements. When The Bulletin asked to review the visa applications made by five companies that requested guest workers, Trupo wrote in an e-mail that the applications are available only by making a Freedom of Information Act request. The U.S. Forest Service was unable to determine whether complaints had been made against the four Oregon contractors with the most guest workers in a week’s time. Forest Service spokeswoman Valerie Baca did say that contractors must be in good standing when contracts are issued. According to Labor Department records, the biggest importers of foreign labor were Central Point contractor G.E. Forestry, which received approval for 123 seasonal workers this year; Medford’s Cutting Edge Forestry, with 72; Ashland’s Summitt Forests Inc., with 66; and Ponderosa Reforestation, of Medford, with 39. Combined, the companies have received just more than $10 million in federal stimulus contracts for thinning and removing debris from Oregon forests. G.E. Forestry office manager Victor Gomez said his company brings in visa workers because they do the job better than locals. A willingness to work quickly, especially, is what sets them apart, Gomez said. Although Gomez said he advertises jobs in local newspapers, few locals want the jobs after he explains the work required. The ones who do usually quit once they realize the amount of effort that G.E. demands, Gomez said. “(Local workers) do it, but they can’t do it at the same pace; they can’t put out the same work as the other employees,” Gomez said. “They’re pushed to keep up with the other employees, and that’s when they don’t want to do it.” Because foreign workers are here just to work, Gomez said, they’re often more motivated than U.S. employees. “I think they’re more motivated for that money,” he said. “They don’t have unemployment to go

“Right now, if I put an ad in, I could get anywhere from 200 to 400 applications from local workers.” — Mike Wheelock, owner of Grayback Forestry, in Merlin on. If they don’t work, they go back to Mexico.”

High unemployment Companies are requesting foreign workers at a time when the state has an unemployment rate above 10 percent; Crook County leads the state, at a seasonally adjusted 16 percent unemployment, and Deschutes is close behind at 14 percent, according to Oregon Employment Department statistics. The forest and construction industry in particular has a glut of unemployed workers, following the implosion of the region’s construction industry. Deschutes County lost 58 percent of its logging, mining and construction jobs between 2007 and this spring, according to the Employment Department. Mike Wheelock, owner of Grayback Forestry in Merlin, said he used foreign workers in the middle part of the last decade, when the labor market was tight. But now he’s had no trouble finding willing workers. “Right now, if I put an ad in, I could get anywhere from 200 to 400 applications from local workers,” Wheelock said. Darst Atherly said he has so many inquiries from job seekers that he doesn’t need to advertise when a spot opens at his firm. “I get three to five calls a week from people seeking employment, despite having no ads and despite telling people I’m not hiring,” Atherly said.

Overseeing H-2B visas That has driven Atherly, Wheelock and other forest contractors to complain that their competitors might be skirting labor requirements that companies must advertise for jobs and accept American applicants before seeking foreign workers.

American University law professor Jayesh Rathod, who co-authored a recent report on abuses in the Maryland crab industry’s H-2B visa program, said critics have long questioned how closely the Department of Labor oversees the program. “I think this is a general area of concern — how closely is the DOL looking at those attestations? Are they checking to see how thorough the recruitment process was, or are they accepting the claim on its face?” Rathod said. Gomez dismissed complaints by other contractors as sour grapes. He said his company has to follow state and federal labor laws, just as other contractors must. “I personally think it is just jealousy,” Gomez said. Keith Chu can be reached at 202-662-7456 or at


Parking Continued from A1 “Our position is that the program isn’t sustainable,” Datwyler said. “It’s just not something that the parking fund can continue to subsidize.” In addition to the contract with Diamond Parking for enforcement, the parking fund covers a variety of other downtown functions. It pays for operation and maintenance of the city’s parking garage and maintenance of other downtown city lots, and it funds the permitting process for outdoor cafes and street vendors. “There’s a cost to doing business downtown,” Datwyler said. “It needs to be supported or the downtown district can’t function.” While the city hasn’t completely reviewed all 358 validation rejections, Datwyler said he’s fairly certain most of them are from downtown business owners and employees, based on preliminary investigations and comparisons of parking histories of known offenders. Of the 52 receipts that were actually matched to downtown employees, 34 were from people who tried to have their tickets overturned by showing they spent money at stores different from where they were employed. The remainder of the receipts came from the businesses where the ticketed individuals worked. Datwyler said using a receipt from an individual’s own business could be interpreted as fraud by the city under the municipal code and result in a $250 fine on top of the citation. This isn’t the first time the city has encountered problems with downtown business owners and employees taking advantage of parking regulations. Most recently, the city increased the distance a vehicle had to move after its time in the free two-hour

parking areas expired because downtown employees were simply playing merry-go-round with their cars every couple of hours to avoid getting tickets. It also isn’t the first time the city has had issues with a parking ticket validation program. In 2004, the city offered a fee-based approach in which business owners could voluntarily buy validation stickers that would let them give customers a free pass if they received parking tickets while downtown. About two years after its implementation, the city quit offering that program because it was fraught with abuse from business owners and employees using the stickers to try and dismiss their own parking tickets. “We’re right back to where we were with that original program,” Datwyler said. “There are businesses that are doing the right thing, and there’s a small minority that are continuing the problem.” Many of the most frequent parking offenders are downtown business owners and their employees, some of whom have racked up thousands of dollars worth of tickets. The city has tried to provide alternative parking options to employees to keep them out of customer spaces — albeit at a cost — but downtown workers don’t seem to be participating. Bend offers discounted parking permits for downtown employees on the roof of its parking garage on Lava Road for $30 a month, which is $20 less than the going rate. And for employees who can show they make $10.08 an hour or less, the city leases a parking lot along the Deschutes River between Newport Avenue and Vermont Place where spots are available for $15 a month. “We wanted to take a carrotand-stick approach with the whole parking thing,” King said. “Our motivation is really for busi-

nesses so we can ensure parking spaces are for customers.” Danielle Hynes, 27, is one of the downtown employees whose parking ticket was rejected through the validation program. She works at Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails on Bond Street and said she was ticketed twice in one day. Because she has to pay for her own meals while working, she thought she would be able to send in her receipt to have the tickets overturned. Now she’s surprised that she might face the prospect of a $250 fine and feels the city’s parking rules discriminate against downtown employees who, like other customers, contribute their money to neighboring merchants. “I just think the program’s set up kind of making the employee look like the enemy when we’re a big part of downtown’s economy,” Hynes said. “Just because I worked that day doesn’t mean that I didn’t go to the bank and do other things to spend money at downtown businesses.” Hynes added that she didn’t know about her other parking options until she was told by the person who wrote one of her parking tickets. Downtown Bend Business Association President Chuck Arnold considers the city’s parking validation program a success because of the number of tickets that have been overturned for those who were “unfamiliar” with the downtown regulations and doesn’t want to see it go away. “Abuse is always going to be there in any system that you set up, and you can’t let that set the rules or ruin the program,” he said. “You have to still march forward. You have to do your best to control it. But you can’t let it dictate the positive message that you’re trying to put forward.” Arnold, who is running for City Council, knows the impor-

How parking validation works To have a downtown parking ticket overturned, you must include the original citation, a dated receipt from any downtown business and a copy of a valid driver’s license. There are also several other requirements that must be met, including: • Businesses must be in the downtown shopping district. • Receipts must match the date and time of the citation. • A minimum $10 purchase is required. • The citation and receipt must be turned in by the time the ticket is normally due. • One validation is allowed per customer, with up to two a year. • Validations are for customers only. • Validations do not cover the city’s parking garage or Mirror Pond parking lot. tance of keeping parking spaces open for customers. He said there needs to be a financial disincentive to keep employees out of the parking spots that are there to provide a gateway to the customers who spend money in their businesses. But he also acknowledges that changing the behavior and the sense of “entitlement” certain individuals feel toward their perceived parking rights can be difficult, if not impossible, to overcome. “It’s never going to be perfect for everyone. It’s just the nature of the beast,” Arnold said. “What the experts say is: If you don’t have a parking problem, then you have a problem.” Nick Grube can be reached at 541-633-2160 or at

North Korea warned that joint U.S. and South Korean military exercises poised to begin this weekend amount to a military provocation that will draw a “powerful” nuclear response.

U.S. military drills put pressure on N. Korea By Eric Talmadge The Associated Press

A massive nuclear-powered U.S. supercarrier began maneuvers earlier today with ally South Korea in a potent show of force, four months after the sinking of a South Korean warship. North Korea threatened the exercises could lead to nuclear war. The military drills, set to run through Wednesday, involve about 8,000 U.S. and South Korean troops, 20 ships and submarines and 200 aircraft. The USS George Washington, with several thousand sailors and dozens of fighter jets aboard, was deployed from Japan. The exercises will be the first in a series of U.S.-South Korean maneuvers conducted off South Korea’s east coast and in the Yellow Sea closer to China’s shores in international waters. The exercises also are the first to employ the F-22 stealth fighter — which can evade North Korean air defenses — in South Korea. The American and South Korean defense chiefs announced Tuesday in Seoul they would stage the military drills to send a clear message to North Korea to

stop its “aggressive” behavior. Washington and Seoul blame Pyongyang for the sinking of the 1,200-ton Cheonan warship in late March near the Koreas’ maritime border. A five-nation team of investigators concluded a North Korean torpedo sank the Cheonan, considered the worst military attack on the South since the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea, which denies any involvement in the sinking, has warned the United States against attempting to punish it. The regime called the drills an “unpardonable military provocation.” The North routinely threatens attacks whenever South Korea and the U.S. hold joint military drills, which Pyongyang sees as a rehearsal for an invasion. The U.S. keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea and another 50,000 in Japan, but says it has no intention of invading the North. China, a traditional North Korean ally, has voiced concerns that military drills in the Yellow Sea could inflame tensions on the Korean peninsula and also fears exercises too close to its own shores could breach Chinese security.

C OV ER S T ORY “This particular excavation could be revolutionary for understanding (the) early ... Americas.” — David Rhode, with the Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nev.

Photos by Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin

Alex Caib removes a small rodent bone from a portion of dirt excavated from a pit in the caves Wednesday afternoon. Archaeologist Dennis Jenkins describes the different layers of sediment and the artifacts dating back more than 14,000 years found at Paisley Caves in Southern Oregon.

Paisley Continued from A1 The Clovis culture, which existed about 13,000 years ago, was a previous holder of the oldestAmerican title. And some of Jenkins’ critics are not convinced of the 14,300-year-old date for the finds, which Jenkins published in the journal Science in 2008. So Jenkins and other visiting archaeologists are working this summer to collect even more samples, take radiocarbon dates and find out all they can about the people who passed through Paisley thousands of years ago. “This particular excavation could be revolutionary for understanding early occupations of the Americas,” said David Rhode with the Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nev., who visited the site last week. There are a number of contenders for a culture that existed in the Americas before the Clovis time period, he said, but not many details. Archaeologists have questions about who the earliest people were and where they lived, Rhode said. Scientists also have questions about how people originally got to America, Jenkins said, including whether they walked over a land bridge from Russia or took boats across the ocean, and how humans lived once they were here.

Informative items Ancient human feces could provide many of these answers, he said. “Anymore, I’m really interested

what kinds of parasites might have lived in people 14,000 years ago. “It’s ... very important coprolites,” Reinhard said. “These are the oldest ancestral Native Americans, (and) coprolites can tell you a lot more than skeletons.” He’s looking for pinworms, thorny headed worms and more to better understand the health of the population and what they ate. He also uses parasites to study migration patterns of human hosts, and said if he can find parasites in the Paisley Caves droppings, they would be the oldest parasites recovered in the New World. in poop — it’s very informative,” Jenkins said. But the first step is to collect and test the samples. The specimens have to be handled a certain way to ensure they’re not contaminated with modern DNA from archaeologists, which makes excavation a little tricky. “Each of us is a DNA volcano,” Jenkins said; it’s in the moisture in breath, as well as oils from skin. “You have to be extremely careful.” So when one of the archaeology students working on the dig spots the telltale shape and color of a coprolite, he or she calls over the person in charge of collecting them that day. That person puts on a head-to-toe Tyvek suit, a face mask and two layers of gloves. He or she uses sterile tweezers to pick up the specimen and put it in a sterile cup. The cup is then sealed up with tape and labeled, and is not opened until it gets to the DNA-analyzing lab in Denmark. Archaeologists cannot tell just by looking at it whether a thousands-year-old dropping is from a person or an animal like a bobcat or coyote. “The vast majority are not human, but you have to treat each one like it is,” Jenkins said. To trace the dropping back to a species, the Danish lab has to test the small snippets of DNA that survived in the dropping for millennia. If it’s human, additional genetic experiments can tell scientists the region where the person’s ancestors immigrated from. And, by studying the smallest mutations in the ancient DNA, at

Fear of racial backlash behind USDA fiasco, analysts suggest By Steven Thomma McClatchy-Tribune News Service

WASHINGTON — Is President Barack Obama afraid of talking about race? Of being seen as too black? As an anti-white racist? Analysts say the Obama administration’s hasty decision last week to fire a black Agriculture Department employee who’d been falsely accused of racism was made in a moment of panic driven by fear of conservative media criticism or a white political backlash. “Hysterical blindness,” said Katheryn Russell-Brown, the director of the Center for the Study of Race and Race Relations at the University of Florida Law School. “They are afraid of being labeled as racist.” “They’re trying to protect him,” added Ron Walters, a retired political science professor from the University of Maryland. “He has a right to be sensitive. But in terms of managing these things, he doesn’t have a right to look weak and skittish.” The Obama administration spent the week trying to explain

how and why it acted so quickly to fire Shirley Sherrod from her job as the director of rural development in Georgia for the Department of Agriculture without inquiring whether conservative activist Andrew Breitbart’s allegation that she’d boasted about discriminating against a white farmer was true. Obama and his aides blame the news media in part for driving the administration to fire Sherrod in haste, saying the cloudburst of commentary on the Internet without fact, balance or investigation made it difficult to respond. John Zogby, a pollster, said the rapidly changing media ecosystem was a factor, as emotional charges such as racism grabbed people’s attention when they were bombarded with information, true or false, from TV, radio, the Internet, in e-mails or in Tweets. Zogby and others said the media’s haste didn’t excuse bad management, however. “It’s a reminder how we have to adjust to the media ... and at the same time hold on to traditional virtues and ways of doing business,” Zogby said.

some point scientists might even be able to determine how long ago the people left for the Western Hemisphere, Jenkins said. Beyond the DNA, scientists can examine the material that remains in the artifact to reveal prehistoric diets — so far, pollens from root plants, rose seeds, grasses, hair and charcoal have turned up, Jenkins said. Forensic scientist Karl Reinhard, with the University of Nebraska, was at the Paisley Caves site last week as well. He is hoping to examine the coprolites to see

Other artifacts The researchers aren’t only studying the old feces. Jenkins and his team are taking samples of material found at each layer of the cave floor to test with radiocarbon dating. That will help verify the ages of the material found within each layer and demonstrate that the oldest artifacts are found on the bottom levels. They’re also looking to see what kinds of tools and animal bones were left during different time

periods — and which ones might be associated with the people who left their signs behind. Last week, for example, students uncovered a piece of cord wrapped around a bird feather quill that was perhaps once tied to clothing, right next to what Jenkins termed “a very respectable deposit.” With brushes and trowels, they’ve also uncovered obsidian tools and flakes, bones from camels, bison and other animals, even the exoskeletons of large insects that might have been food. On Wednesday, McVey and Alex Caib were using screens to sift through layers of dirt dug from the pit. “Screening is the last line of defense,” Caib said. They pick out and save animal bones, flakes of obsidian — “pretty much anything that looks not like a rock,” McVey said. The most exciting finds, she said, are pieces of cord that could be from a basket, or bits of twine, which would obviously be made by a human. On Wednesday, Rachael Kannegaard, a student from the University of Montana, was excavating a pit as deep as she is tall. She

slowly and deliberately uncovered a layer of darkened soil. It could be blackened by a wildfire, she said, or could be a human-created hearth. And right in that corner, she found flakes of obsidian, possibly created when people chipped away at a bigger tool. Kannegaard put even the smallest, wafer-thin obsidian in a Ziplock bag labeled with the coordinates of the spot where she uncovered it. The tiniest flake, she said, could end up being the artifact that determines people visited a site. “We’ve taken a lot of charcoal, and that came right at the same time there was some obsidian,” Kannegaard said. “So it’s pretty exciting.” That combination of fire, tools and people at the same time, in the same place, can help shed light on what people were doing 12,000 or 13,000 years ago — in this case, creating or sharpening obsidian tools. “That is exactly what we’d love to find,” Jenkins said.

Washington Week WASHINGTON — A long-delayed extension of unemployment benefits passed both chambers of Congress last week. Removing that roadblock unleashed a stream of legislation, leading to a flurry of votes Thursday evening on bills ranging from funding military operations to aiding small businesses. Here’s how Oregon’s lawmakers voted last week.

By the end of the summer, a bus staffed with volunteer medical professionals could be making the rounds at local homeless camps and shelters, offering services to people who might otherwise go untreated. Central Oregon Veterans Outreach, a Bend-based nonprofit that offers services to local veterans — including many who are homeless — is heading up the project. The group has a bus, donated by NeighborImpact, that it hopes to overhaul into a traveling medical clinic. Chuck Hemingway, COVO’s executive director, said the bus would provide services to veterans and anyone else who needs assistance. He said it’s been clear for some time that there is a major need for medical care among the area’s homeless population, particularly after reviewing the reports from this year’s one-day homeless count.

U.S. Senate • EXTENDING UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS Passed 59-39 on Wednesday. The $34 billion bill restores unemployment payments to about 2.5 million people whose benefits expired at the beginning of last month. The extension lasts through November. Most Republicans who opposed the measure argued that it added too much to the already large federal deficit. After the death of West Virginia Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, Democrats had to wait until last week, when Byrd’s replacement, Sen. Carte Goodwin, took office, to ensure they had enough votes to pass the bill. President Barack Obama signed the bill into law on Friday.

For more information or to volunteer with the medical bus effort, contact Central Oregon Veterans Outreach at 541-383-2793.

The survey found that about 2,400 people in Central Oregon were homeless, up 7 percent from a year earlier. “Almost every person we talked to, most of them were experiencing some kind of medical issue, and expressed a want and a desire to get some kind of medical help,” he said. “As we make the runs out into the camps, that continues to be something we hear.” Hemingway said he’s hopeful the bus will be up and running by September. But first, the bus has to be checked by a mechanic and outfitted with equipment, including a refrigerator. See Care / B7

• CREATING A FUND TO ENCOURAGE LENDING BY SMALL BANKS Passed 60-37 on Thursday. The amendment to a smallbusiness bill creates a $30 billion fund designed to give community banks access to more capital. The banks, in turn, would be expected to lend the money to small businesses, or pay an additional 6 percentage points of interest on the government loan. Republicans compared the fund to the Wall Street bailout of 2008, an idea that Democrats strongly rejected. The fund was supported by Sen. Jeff Merkley, who proposed a similar program earlier this year. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D .........Yes Sen. Ron Wyden, D ..........Yes

• FUNDING U.S. MILITARY OPERATIONS Failed 46-51 on Thursday, where 60 votes were needed to break a filibuster. Senators rejected the House version of the war spending and disaster relief bill, which included about $20 billion in education funding, border security and other domestic spending, which wasn’t in the Senate’s version of the bill. The measure now goes back to the House. Sen. Jeff Merkley, D .........Yes Sen. Ron Wyden, D ..........Yes

Although they’d hoped to make it to Montana by sunset, Couch and Freis ended up touching down near the Rager Ranger Station east of Prineville on Saturday afternoon, roughly 70 miles from the Stop and Go. After each of the three flights he’s done, from an aborted attempt in 2006 where he was forced to parachute out of his chair, the 2007 flight, and a 2008 flight where he made it all the way to Cambridge, Idaho — roughly 240 miles — Couch has sworn he’s ready to hang up his lawn chair.

Hikers brought down from South Sister Three hikers who were stranded on South Sister on Friday evening were brought down the mountain by Deschutes County Search and Rescue personnel Saturday morning. At around 6 p.m., 911 dispatchers received a phone call from the hikers: Sharla Erich, 45, and sons Robert Erich, 22, and Stephen Erich, 20. The group had started up the Green Lakes trail in the morning and reached Hodge Crest, just below the summit of South Sister, where they found they were unable to cross the ice field and lacked the necessary equipment, clothing, food and water for the conditions. Rescuers reached the group at approximately 1 a.m. Saturday with the needed supplies and spent the night on the mountain. After a rest period, the hikers and rescuers headed down the

trail, and reached the trailhead at around 9:30 a.m. All hikers and rescuers returned in good condition, and the hikers were reunited with family members at the trailhead.

Brush fire burns Crook County home A brush fire Saturday afternoon destroyed a three-story home north of Prineville on Moore Lane. The first calls came in to Crook County Fire and Rescue at around 1:30 p.m. By the time firefighters arrived, the roof of the home was fully involved, and Crook County called in assistance from the Oregon Department of Forestry and the Bureau of Land Management. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it appears the fire began in brush and grass before spreading to the home. The fire was contained to about one-tenth of an acre.

A North Carolina Woolworth’s integrates its lunch counter in 1960 T O D AY IN HISTORY

The Associated Press Today is Sunday, July 25, the 206th day of 2010. There are 159 days left in the year. T O DAY’S HIGHLIGHT IN HISTORY On July 25, 1960, a Woolworth’s store in Greensboro, N.C., that had been the scene of a sit-in protest against its whitesonly lunch counter dropped its segregation policy as it served three of its black employees at the counter. ON THIS DATE In 1866, Ulysses S. Grant was named General of the Army of the United States, the first officer to hold the rank. In 1909, French aviator Louis Bleriot became the first person to fly an airplane across the English Channel, traveling from Calais to Dover in 37 minutes. In 1946, the United States detonated an atomic bomb near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific in the first underwater test of the device. In 1952, Puerto Rico became a self-governing commonwealth of the United States.

O California gold miners head north Moratorium on gas-powered dredging triggers the migration By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

GOLD HILL — After California shut down gold mining with suction dredges, Dave McCracken loaded his gear and drove over the Siskiyou Mountains to Southern Oregon, where he is building up his retirement fund with flecks of gold gleaned from the gravels of the Rogue River. He is part of a mini gold rush going on this summer that appears to be the result of the high price of gold, the poor economy, and California’s year-old moratorium on using gasoline-powered dredges to mine for gold while it figures out whether it is bad for salmon. “It’s very hard work,” said McCracken, a former Navy SEAL and founder of the New 49ers gold mining club in Happy Camp, Calif. “But the stuff is so valuable right now. An ounce a day and I’m doing good on my retirement plan.” The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality reports it issued 1,205 dredging permits this year, up 30 percent from 934 last year. The number of Californians went from 51 in 2009 to 85 this year, up 67 percent. “I think we have a little gold rush going on,” said Jim Billings, a compliance specialist in DEQ’s water quality division. “I get calls from all around the country. A lot of people who would have vacationed in Northern California to suction dredge have called me to ask about what requirements are to suction dredge in Oregon, because they’re going to move their vacation to Oregon.” Grants Pass miner Mike Higbee said he would have figured the numbers would be higher. “You’re looking at gold at $1,200 an ounce,” said Higbee. “That in itself is going to get more people excited and looking. Then, with the current moratorium in California — California has always been sort of a gold mining destination for dredgers — that operation’s off the table at this point. It would only make sense there would be some increase.” One complication for firsttime miners in Oregon is that the state dredging permit expired June 30. People who paid their $25 for a year’s permit before then are OK. But anyone else has to wait until the end of July, when the new permit should be ready.

Heavily mined The creeks and rivers in southwestern Oregon have been mined three times over: first by miners overflowing the California gold fields in the 1850s, then by Chinese immigrants who worked over the tailings, and again in the Great Depression by people scratching out a living. The numbers typically go up and down with the price of gold.

Oregon has not been welcoming to the idea of a new gold rush. Proposed new rules from the Department of Environmental Quality are likely to cut down the size and power of dredges, regulate the amount of silt generated and keep heavy equipment out of the river. They would also prohibit mining from generating muddiness in the water in federal wilderness areas, including one in southwestern Oregon where conservation groups have been trying to stop a gold mining resort. The action stems from a court challenge from both miners and conservationists to the old rule. Members of Oregon’s Congressional delegation have asked the Obama administration to formally withdraw some rivers on federal lands in southwestern Oregon from new mining claims and work on claims that have not proven profitable. The rivers are in an area conservation groups have long wanted to protect for its unusual diversity of plant life and prime salmon habitat.

‘Nature of gold’ About 25 miners have been regularly working a stretch of river downstream of Gold Ray Dam and upstream of Nugget Falls near the town of Gold Hill, said McCracken. It is open river, controlled by the Division of State Lands, which requires a free placer mining permit. Unlike federal lands, miners here can’t file a claim. But they can run their dredges during the summer mining season, scheduled to keep miners out of the river when salmon and steelhead are spawning. “There are some guys out there doing it for the money,” he said. “And there are guys doing it for something to do. Everybody wants as much as they can get. That’s the nature of gold.” The California moratorium has turned Happy Camp into a ghost town, said McCracken. Campgrounds normally overflowing with recreational miners this time of year are practically empty. His gold mining equipment shop is selling a few gold pans, picks, buckets and tubs, but none of the dredges that go for between $1,000 and $6,000. McCracken figures it will be 2012 before California decides what to do about dredging. Until then, he will be spending his summers on the Rogue, immersed in the river running a 4-inch hose over the bottom and going over the spoils with his gold pan. “It does not come free,” he said. “The guys doing it see me coming out with all that gold scratch their heads and can’t figure it out. It’s 30 years of practice. A lot of these guys are on their first year. You have to know what you’re looking for.”

Bob O’Day, of Snowflake, Ariz., shows off the gold he mined Friday on the Rogue River near Gold Hill. The flecks amount to about 1.5 pennyweight, worth about $75, minus $40 for the gas to operate his dredge, for a full day’s work. “If you’ve got to live on the gold you get, you’re going to starve,’’ he said.

100 YEARS AGO For the week ending July 24, 1910

Max Faulkner / Fort Worth Star-Telegram

About a year ago, a World War II veteran living in south Fort Worth, Texas, began receiving far more mail than the U.S. Postal Service carrier can fit through his home’s mail slot.

Charitable Texas senior deals with a deluge of junk mail By David Casstevens Fort Worth Star-Telegram

FORT WORTH, Texas — A Texas woman is more than a little concerned about her 87-yearold father. “My father,” she said, “is being buried alive.” To substantiate her claim, the woman opened the front door of a modest south Fort Worth, Texas, home and guided a visitor past the cluttered living room and down a dim hallway. A bespectacled gray-haired man sat in the kitchen. “See what I mean?” the daughter said. Her dad, a retired World War II veteran who lives alone, can no longer eat at his breakfast table. The table is piled with envelopes of all sizes, a 3½-foot mountain — an avalanche — of unopened junk mail. Some of the mailings had slid from the precarious and growing heap and lay scattered on the yellow linoleum. That day, the man had received 56 more items. “And 98 percent of it is junk,” said the daughter, who, along with her father, is not being identified by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Donation requests. Unwanted credit card applications. Address labels. Political fliers. Petitions. Catalogs. Calendars. Magazines. Newsletters. Mail-order scams. It keeps coming, a relentless and overwhelming snowstorm of advertising, signs of a consumer culture run amok. “Urgent Notice!” “Immediate Response Requested.” “Sign and Date Within the Next 10 Days.” Boxes crammed with envelopes blocked the back door. Junk mail resting along the baseboards of the entry hall created what the daughter recognizes as another safety hazard. “Daddy, you could slip on this and fall,” the woman said. She knelt and gathered up the litter. During one visit, the daughter said, she discovered the gas stove top covered with mail. Knowing that this situation can’t continue, and aware that her father needs help, she raked the material covering the stove into boxes and took them to her home to sort and shred. Two weeks ago, she carried out five more loads. Belatedly, she has begun the time-consuming task of calling or writing the senders and requesting that her father’s name be removed from the mailing lists. Meanwhile her dad methodically dates each item. About a year ago, the man began receiving far more mail than the U.S. Postal Service carrier can fit through the resident’s mail slot. Her father, the woman said, is a giving man. He sends about $2,500 a year to various charities. Now everyone, it seems — from The Amazing Kreskin to a self-described clairvoyant with a Sparks, Nev., mailing address — is hounding him, persistently, hoping to benefit from the octogenarian’s generosity. He receives more than 40 pieces of junk mail daily. “It’s out of control,” his daughter said. Her dad looked up from a stack of envelopes resting on his lap. “One Monday,” he said, “I got 110.”

Massive mailings Each year, American households receive more than 100

billion pieces of direct or advertising junk mail. Junk mail distributed in the U.S. accounts for 30 percent of all mail delivered worldwide. Consumers 65 and older are targeted with the most unwanted direct mail, according to a survey conducted by Stopthe and Harman Research. A person who responds to one mailing may end up on lists that are sold and resold. Junk mail can become an endless merry-go-round. In 2007, a Zogby poll reported that 89 percent of Americans support creation of a Do Not Mail Registry that gives people the choice to opt out of wasteful and unwanted junk mail. In the past three years, at least 19 states, including Texas, introduced legislation that would create a Do Not Mail Registry similar to the Do Not Call Registry established in 2003 by the Federal Trade Commission. None of those bills passed. The Postal Service needs direct-mail revenue. Postmaster General John Potter told Congress in 2008 that do-not-mail efforts “threaten the viability of the mail.” According to a Congressional Research Service report, the Postal Service estimates that it could lose $4 billion to $10 billion annually in revenue if all states passed a Do Not Mail Registry and all consumers registered for it.

Psychic solicitations The typewritten letter misspelled George’s first name. “My dear Aeorae,” it began. “In just a few days, on the night of Aug 10, 2010, to be exact, something very special is going to happen. It wouldn’t surprise me ... if, over the days that follow that special night, you write me a letter telling me that your financial woes are finally over because you have just won a very large sum of money.” The six-page letter was from Maria Duval with the Destiny Research Center. Enclosed was a thin, gold-colored disc, identified as a talisman. “And, you, Aeorae, you are going to be able to profit from it!!!” In her letter the psychic offered to perform “The Grand Ritual of the Black Moon” on the Fort Worth retiree’s behalf, after which love, luck and most of all money, may finally be part of your life! Just send $10, by check, money order or credit card. “My father is a Christian man,” the daughter said. “He serves his church. Where does she get sending that demonic stuff?” On Monday, 96 more pieces of junk mail arrived at her dad’s doorstep. Their messages sounded alarms. “The Social Security Trust Fund is in deep trouble!” “The ACLU is trying to outlaw the Ten Commandments.” “Our nation is plunging into debt at the rate of $2.7 million a minute.” The man set his latest stack of mail aside. “I’m pretty patient,” he said, serenely, referring to his problem. “I used to build model airplanes.” But his loved one is at wits’ end. She needs more boxes. “How many others is this happening to?” the daughter asked. “This isn’t right. Our seniors shouldn’t be treated this way.”

MORE MEN ON RAILROAD WORK Bryan & Youngstrom has 125 men at work along the 2,000 feet of dump-car rails on its railroad construction contract at and near Bend. More rails are on the road, and the force will be increased as soon as there are facilities for working. Probably 200 men will be working in the rock by the first of August. These contractors have four 6-horse freighting teams on the road all the time, and yet cannot get materials and supplies as fast as they are desired. An incident of this railroad construction is the change of the Pilot Butte Irrigation canal just south of Bend. The railroad survey crossed this canal obliquely, which, from an engineering standpoint, is objectionable. By building about 1,000 feet of new canal on a different course, the railroad may cross it at right angles. The railroad company will make this change in the canal at its own expense, as a part of the cost of the railroad construction. Work on the railroad grade in Lytle acre tracts has been suspended for a few days on account of the state of health of one of the residents there. Prior to suspension of this work several windows were broken in the dwellings of F.M. Ray and the Misses Markel, it being impossible to guard them from flying fragments of rock. At the crossing of Greenwood Avenue, the railway will be 9 feet above the normal surface of the ground. The engineers have calculated on an excavation of about 5 feet for the street, thus placing the railroad tracks 14 feet above the street grade. It is also planned to leave one opening 17 feet wide for teams in the middle of the street and two others, each 11 feet wide, for sidewalks. The railway tracks will be carried over these on trestles. The remainder of the space will be filled with rock. A report has gained currency that the passenger depot would be located just north of the Greenwood Avenue crossing, a blueprint showing the station at that point having been gotten out by the engineers. However probable it may be that the depot will be located there, it is authoritatively stated that no official action in the matter has yet been taken. This is another thing that will be settled at headquarters, not by the force in the field. Owing to the excessive heat, it is found difficult to retain workmen in the lower canyon of the Deschutes, but construction work is humming all along the Oregon Trunk between Crooked River and Bend.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending July 24, 1935 SWAN MURDER AVERTED HERE Rocks thrown last night from the river’s edge saved Grandsire Clyde, belligerent swan ruler of the Mirror Pond, from the stigma of murdering his own son. Splashing of a stone, as it hit the water,

caused angry Clyde to loosen his death grip on the neck of weakening Mox, Clyde’s cherished cygnet of three seasons ago, now his hated rival. Mox seized the opportunity to escape, and Clyde strutted back to his spouse, Leila, and their 1935 batch of youngsters. How it all happened is not of record. Paul Hosmer, The Bulletin’s veteran waterfront reporter, was taking his night off, and his understudy did not arrive until the battle between the two was well under way. What started it? Evidence is available that Mox and his sister, Lockit — his wife as well as sister, for the Mirror Pond swans like the Ptolemies and Incas of old ignore with sublime indifference the taboos of consanguinity — glided serenely past Leila and her brood. It is more than hinted that Mox cast a roving glance in the direction of his ma, that he mentioned possibly that he would be back after he had taken his wife home. Whatever the affront, it was sufficient. Mox seems to have forgotten Clyde, but Clyde had not forgotten Mox. In superdreadnaught charge, he arrived, and in an instant battle was joined. Lockit went on her way, but Leila and the cygnets stood by, sometimes so close as to hinder the action of the combatants. Water turned into foam as the big white birds fought. Resounding thumps, as powerful wings beat, advertised the fray. Wings were being used partly as direct weapons of offense, but more as indirect weapons, it seemed as the technique of swan fighting was unfolded. Each bird was seeking the advantage of superior height, and wings were beating to lift the birds partly out of the water in maneuver for position to apply the neck hold. Early on Mox had the edge, but Clyde, stronger and more experienced, shook him off. The grip was too low. Clyde reared, gained greater height, struck downward with twisting, snakelike thrust. Open mandibles enveloped, then closed on the neck of Mox and forced his son’s head underwater. Mox managed to come up for air, but the younger bird was weakening, and Clyde, in vile temper, was relentless. As he forced his son’s head under for the last time, it was plain that there would be one less Mirror Pond swan. But tragedy was averted, rocks came, and the escape. When it was all over, Clyde and Leila and their 1935 children were midway between the footbridge and the island. Lockit was still farther upstream, while Mox, the soundly trounced, sulked in the shadow of the footbridge.

The picture being filmed today was “Head of Hair,” a production that calls for foothills country, a desert camp and a mountain canyon as part of the varied locale. Technicians headed for the hills as early as 6:30 a.m., followed by crewmen and actors. Working with Richard Boone, the star of “Have Gun, Will Travel,” today were Ben Johnson, Trevor Bardette and Donna Brooks, who is appearing in her first picture. Howard Joslin is production manager, and Andrew McLaglin is director. Frank R. Pierson, producer, returned to Los Angeles by plane this morning, after looking over the region. Incidentally, Pierson, who described himself as “an egghead, Harvard class of ’46, cum laude in cultural anthropology,” had decided that the western hero is the oldest literary figure in history. The historic background of the range heroes is Grecian, not Christian, he believes. Pierson noted: “The object of Greeks classical times was to follow the advice of Achilles’ father: “To be always among the bravest, and hold my head above others.” Pierson added: “They did, in a form of ritual combat called ‘agon’, from which we take our word ‘agony,’ and which we now call a shootout.” The story of Achilles was the first Westerner, Pierson declared. But Pierson expects some ghostly rebuttals from the graves of William Cody, Bill Bonney, also known as Billy the Kid, Ned Buntline, the Earps and the Clantons. The movie men found plenty of sunshine in the eastern Cascades today in contrast with conditions on Monday at Dutchman Flat when low clouds draped high peaks. Aside from the few drops of rain recorded on Monday, Bend has received only 0.01 of moisture in two months. Part of the camera work will be in the Fort Benham area. Because of dust conditions in the hills, it will not be possible to welcome visitors, the producers indicate.

Coors Light at $4.59 a 12-pack were the store’s best-selling beers. One checker said one of every two or three people through her checkstand was buying Coors. Brad Wales, general manager of Bachelor Beverage, which distributes Coors, reported “absolutely phenomenal” first-day sales. Frank Moorman, who bought a 12-pack at Long’s, answered “You bet,” when asked if he knew Monday was Coors’ coming-out day. Moorman, an Oregon native, said he began drinking Coors on out-of-state vacations, and that friends from Idaho and California used to bring him some when they visited. Long’s Assistant Manager Jim Waite said employees had been keeping the Coors display at the front of the store well-supplied all day. At Wagners, Coors was given an inconspicuous niche in the cooler alongside other beers. Waite said Long’s was able to get the jump on other stores with its Coors ad in a Sunday supplement. Although Coors was selling well, Waite said he didn’t think it was moving any faster than other promotional beers have. “It’s going to be expensive even at a promo price,” Waite said. While some people came looking for Coors, others paid no attention. At Wagner’s, one man who pulled his cart alongside the Coors in the cooler paid it no heed as he put two 12-packs of Budweiser in his cart.

A NSWER : Toenail fungus is a very common condition, affecting between 4 and 18 percent of the general population. Patients may notice mild discoloration of the nail only or patients can develop pronounced thickening of the nail. Most toenail dystrophies are fungal in nature but they can also be manifestations of psoriasis, eczema, ischemia (lack of blood flow), trauma, or Kevin Reuter, lichen planus. For that reason, some insurance M.D. companies are requiring definitive diagnosis with a culture prior to initiating treatment. The difficult part about treating toenail infections is that topical antifungal agents are ineffective. That leaves oral agents which can cause liver dysfunction and these agents are quite expensive. Additionally, the incidence of reinfection is quite high, up to 60%, once the medication regimen is completed. Two agents are typically used to treat toenail fungus orally, terbinafine and itraconazole. Both require that you have baseline blood work drawn and then more blood drawn in 6 weeks and again at 3 months to make sure that your liver is tolerating the medication. In my own practice, I discuss this with each patient and we decide on the risks versus benefits of going on the medication, particularly in light of the need for close monitoring while taking the medication with blood work, and the high rate of relapse.

QUESTION: Is there a link between breast cancer and breast implants? Are mammograms as effective is a person has had implants?

QUESTION: How is a fungal toenail treated?

ANSWER: In October 2000, a study by the National Cancer Institute was published with over 13,500 women with breast implants and 4,000 women with other types of plastic surgery procedures. This study revealed that Jana VanAmburg, there was no increase in the incident of breast cancer in the implant group compared with the group of women M.D., FACS that had other types of plastic surgery. When compared with the general population of women, there was no increase in cancer in the implant group either. Also, there was no difference in breast cancer regardless of the type of implant that had been placed. These women were followed over a 12 year period, much longer follow-up than previously presented in similar studies. One controversial finding was noted from this study: implant patients have slightly more advanced breast cancer at diagnosis than women without implants. The reason for this is not known. However, this was not statistically significant on analysis and there was no increase in mortality in implant cancer group.

QUESTION: I have chronic shoulder pain and have been

diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis with a partial tear. I have heard about PRP healing torn ligaments and tendons. Might I be a candidate? ANSWER: PRP is known as Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as autologous platelet concentrate. The treatment involves a blood draw, which is put through a machine which removed the platelet rich plasma concentrating Payson Flattery, it 5-6 times the amount normally found in blood. The N.D., D.C., PC injection of this concentrate into areas of injury stimulates a healing response which generally heals partially torn ligaments and tendons. It has also been shown to heal tendinosis, a degenerated tendon, which is the result of long-term tendinitis. It can treat anything from spinal pain to osteoarthritis and tennis elbow. PRP has been performed in our clinic for four years under ultrasonic guidance. PRP is beginning to enter mainstream medicine and is expected to offer an exciting new alternative to chronic pain, surgery, and injury.

Mammograms are as effective in women with implants as those without, but twice as many views are required to adequately visualize the breast tissue.

A single technique will not work for all patients see a plastic surgeon who is trained in myriad techniques that can address your specific problem and meet your goals of rejuvenation and a more youthful rested appearance.

been no reason to consider your dentist as a possible treatment option for your headaches. Fortunately things have changed. Our profession has learned a lot about how ones bite relates to the airway, posture, and muscle harmony. If any part of that system is not in harmony you can be susceptible to many symptoms including headaches. It is a very complex system and requires a lengthy explanation to understand it well. In a nut shell, I use sophisticated computer instrumentation to determine your ideal bite based on relaxed muscles. I consider your airway as well as your posture and how they relate to your bite. I commonly work with other professionals to improve your entire head and neck relationship including physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage therapy. If these efforts are coordinated the benefits can be extremely effective. I hope this brief explanation helps. I also do a community education series where you can hear with much more detail how your headaches can be improved by improving your bite. Kelley Mingus, D.M.D.

can be helpful for people with chronic pain. I have tried aquatic aerobics, but I felt worse. Is there anything that aquatic physical therapy can offer to help me?

ANSWER: Yes! Trained physical therapists can assist you with specific, personalized strengthening and endurance exercises in an aquatic environment, Zeyla Brandt, P.T. which reduces gravity. This means that there is less force on your joints, which reduces arthritic and other pain. Water provides 7 times the resistance of air, so this can be a very efficient medium for exercising, allowing you to achieve more in less time. Similarly, the water offers increased support, which can be very comforting. For folks with balance problems, exercising in a pool is very helpful, as it allows for balance training without the fear from falling. We also offer treatments which allow for gentle passive movement, with none of the discomfort that may be associated with lying on a treatment table. At Healing Bridge Physical Therapy we have a semi-private warm water pool in the clinic which is ideal for these types of treatments. Our 1:1 hour-long treatment sessions provide professional, individualized attention to our patients’ needs.

ANSWER: Ensuring that we have enough vitamin D is one of the things we can do for ourselves to improve our well-being from head to toe. Here are the current recommendations from leading experts: 1. Food. Add eggs, liver, and fish (like tuna and wild salmon) to your diet. Also read product labels for foods fortified with vitamin D, such as milk, orange juice, and cereal. 2. Sunlight: Just 10-15 minutes a day of direct sunlight can help your body make the vitamin D you need. Put the sunscreen on after you have had this amount of exposure. 3. Supplements: Consider a multivitamin, vitamin D pill, or vitamin D drops to boost your levels to the recommended amount. Your physician will advise you on how the appropriate dosage, frequency, and what kind of supplements to take. Contact Touchmark for a schedule of fun in the sun activities.

ANSWER: Dysport is a simple, effective, nonsurgical treatment, similar to Botox, that works by relaxing facial muscles on the forehead, thereby reducing and smoothing Michael E. Villano, away facial frown-lines and wrinkles. The M.D. clinical effect usually lasts for up to four months.

ANSWER: More and more men and women are choosing alternative procedures to plastic surgery for looking years younger. Whether the choice is made from a purely financial viewpoint, or the desire for a healthier, Becky Carter Medical Esthetician more natural look, alternative methods are Certified Laser definitely growing in popularity. Alternative Technician face and neck lifts can save more than 50-75 per cent of the costs involved with plastic surgery, the average cost for neck lifts being $1,500. Adding to the savings, the health risks involved with plastic surgery, anesthesia and recovery time, are the main factors in clients choosing alternate procedures. Face and neck lifts can be performed without anesthesia, cosmetic injections, and without “down time”. One procedure performed in less than an hour gives results that can last for years.

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.

QUESTION: I have been using Botox for a few years and have recently heard of an alternative product called Dysport. What is Dysport?


UESTION: I have large veins that bulge in my lower legs when I stand for prolonged periods. They can be quite uncomfortable. My mother had a vein stripping procedure years ago for her varicose veins and I vowed I would never go through the pain and scarring that she experienced with that operation. Is there anything besides vein stripping that I can do for this condition?

We are excited to provide Dysport to our new and existing patients.




Dysport is supported by over a decade of clinical experience. Dysport was developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1990s to successfully treat a number of neurological and ophthalmic conditions. Dysport recently received FDA approval for temporary improvement in the appearance of frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.

Bill Offenhauser was born August 7, 1922, in Canton Missouri. Bill met Audrey Dowling in Lakehurst, NJ, and they married in 1945. Bill enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the age of 18, and served throughout the Pacific during WWII, including William ‘Bill’ W. tours in Offenhauser Tulagi, Guadalcanal and the Philippines. While in the Navy, Bill held a number of jobs: Aerial Gunner, Blimp Aircrew, Parachute Rigger Instructor and School Supervisor. After successfully completing 100 jumps, Bill achieved the level of Master Parachutist. Bill also was among the first class of sailors promoted, and the first parachute rigger, to the level of Master Chief. After serving for 20 years, Bill retired from the Navy in 1960. He had second careers with the U.S. Postal Service and as a civilian employee with the Navy. Bill took full advantage of the time his retirement gave him. Using the sewing skills he learned as a parachute rigger, Bill created all of his own backpacking equipment as well as luggage and wallets for his friends and family. Bill had a passion for travel and the great outdoors. One of his first big adventures was hiking along the Rogue River in Oregon. However, his favorite was hiking the Sierra Nevada. Bill travelled throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and South America. Some of his most memorable visits were to Nagasaki just after WWII, the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu. In 2004, Bill and Audrey moved to Bend, Oregon. Bill is survived by his wife, Audrey, his children, Audrey Stauffer of Park City, UT, Jude Graves of Edwardsville, IL, Jeanne Burton of Valley Center, CA, Janice Davis of Annandale, VA, Gail Jenkins Ryan of Phoenix, AZ and Skip Offenhauser of Bend, OR.

Cecile Aubry, 81, actress and writer New York Times News Service Cecile Aubry, a French actress who had a short but glamorous film career and who later became a writer, creating a children’s television series, died Monday in Dourdan, outside of Paris. She was 81. The cause was lung cancer, Agence France-Presse reported, citing family sources. Aubry was just 20 when she appeared in the racy title role of “Manon,” a 1949 film by HenriGeorges Clouzot set in postWorld War II France. Seized on by Hollywood, she was immediately cast in “The Black Rose,” a medieval adventure story filmed in England and Morocco that also starred Tyrone Power and Orson Welles. Her film career was shortlived, however: She made a halfdozen more movies in Europe, the last in 1960.

Engineer Paul Rosen helped develop high-speed modem By T. Rees Shapiro The Washington Post

Paul Rosen, an electrical engineer who in the mid-1950s helped develop the high-speed modem, spurring revolutionary progress in the nascent industry of telecommunications, died of congestive heart failure Tuesday at his cottage in West Bath, Maine. He was 88. The technology behind the modem — a device that converts data into signals that can be passed through channels such as phone lines — has existed in primitive forms since the late 1940s. But in those days, phone lines carried data signals inconsistently, and information was transmitted slowly. While working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory in 1958, Rosen and a colleague, Jack Harrington, patented a device

that rapidly transmitted large amounts of data over phone lines. Their invention, “Method of Land Line Pulse Transmission,” helped expand computer networks nationwide by significantly accelerating the flow of data over phone lines. “One of my colleagues said, ‘Oh, you’re going to get rich on this,’” Rosen said in a 2004 interview with IEEE, the organization formerly known as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. But the patent’s wording was too constrained — the work of an inept lawyer, Rosen often said — which allowed competitors such as AT&T’s Bell Labs to create their own modems by making only minor adjustments to the patented design. Thus, Rosen never made the fortune he thought he deserved when

high-speed modems based on his work began popping up across the United States. Nonetheless, Rosen’s system was a crucial addition to a landmark Army defense project during the Cold War. The SAGE program, or Semi-Automatic Ground Environment, was a series of more than 100 radar installations spread across the northern border of the United States. Each station sent data about incoming planes, such as Russian bombers loaded with nuclear weapons, to centers around the country at a rate of more than 1,800 bits per second through Rosen’s modems. The standard maximum speed for data transmission was about 600 bps, but Rosen’s breakthrough technology allowed the military to monitor U.S. air space nearly in real time.


Doug Ohlson, 73, painter of grand abstracts By Roberta Smith New York Times News Service

It could be said that Doug Ohlson’s determination to be a painter came out of the blue. He was born in Cherokee, Iowa, 50 miles east of the Missouri River, in the middle of the Great Depression. His father, a farmer and the son of a Swedish immigrant, expected his three sons to carry on the family tradition. But Ohlson had other ideas, inspired in part by a plentitude of flat terrain and open sky that was extreme even in a region known for them. In a catalog essay on Ohlson, the art historian E.C. Goossen noted the possible effect of the changing sky during the unending chores of farm life on the artist’s passion for color. “One can imagine yellowish pink and green dawns, blue noons, and red-orange sunsets that swiftly slide from purple to black,” Goossen wrote, “a frequent and spacious enough panorama to last a lifetime.” By the time Ohlson died on June 29 at 73, after a fall in front of his loft building in New York, he had fulfilled his determination with considerable effectiveness, making abstract paintings that experimented intuitively with the color spectrum regardless of fashion. His death was announced by Hunter College, where he had taught for 35 years. Ohlson’s work astutely fused aspects of abstract expressionism, color field painting and minimal art on a grand scale; his paintings sometimes measured as much as 23 feet across. The staple of his formal vocabulary was repeating vertical bars that seemed, increasingly, to levitate before clouds of vibrant contrasting color. Born on Nov. 18, 1936, Ohlson attended Bethel College in St. Paul and served three years in the Marines before earning a degree in studio art from the University of Minnesota in 1961. After graduation, Ohlson immediately headed to New York. He studied briefly with the abstract sculptor and painter Tony Smith at Hunter College until his money ran out, at which point he worked briefly as Smith’s assistant. He began teaching at Hunter in 1964.

Energy expert James Akins warned of 1973 oil embargo By Douglas Martin New York Times News Service

James Akins, the State Department’s top energy expert and then ambassador to Saudi Arabia, who warned more than a year in advance of the 1973 Arab oil embargo that oilexporting nations were poised to restrict shipments, died July 15 in Mitchellville, Md. He was 83. His death, at an assistedliving center, was caused by a heart attack, his family said. He had earlier lived in Washington. Akins made his prediction after attending a meeting of Arab petroleum producers in May 1972 in Algiers, where he confirmed that oil-exporting nations were eager to take advantage of the United States’ increasing dependence on the crude they pumped. The countries, he said, could not spend as much money as they were getting for their oil, and realized that “oil in the ground is as good as oil in the bank.” He soon laid out the grim economics of the energy future in an influential article in the journal Foreign Affairs in April 1973. He correctly predicted that world consumption of oil for the next 12 years would exceed that of all previous human history, and warned that the loss of any two Middle Eastern countries’ production would push oil prices from $3 a barrel to more than $5. In fact, they reached $39.50. The first shock came with the Middle East war that October. After Israel was attacked by Egypt and Syria, the United States pledged to resupply its military. Arab members of

the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries responded by raising the price of crude by 70 percent, agreed to production cutbacks to enforce the new price, and banned exports to the United States and selected other nations. The embargo ended in March 1974, after delivering a body blow to the global economy and forcing Americans to endure gas rationing and long lines at service stations. Akins had been promoted from director of fuels and energy at the State Department to ambassador to Saudi Arabia the month before the embargo began. One of his first acts was to send a confidential message to executives of the major oil companies that were forming a consortium, called Aramco, to pump oil in Saudi Arabia. He asked them “to use their contacts at the highest levels” of the U.S. government to “hammer home the point that oil restrictions are not going to be lifted unless political struggle is settled in a manner satisfactory to Arabs.” Akins was advocating at least some measure of support for Arab claims against Israel, something

he would often do later in life as an industry consultant, and he was criticized for it. “Here he was, the American ambassador to Saudi Arabia, attempting to reinforce the Arabs’ blackmail of the United States,” Steven Emerson wrote in his book “The American House of Saud” (1985). Akins said he was simply doing his job of promoting American interests, which may or may not coincide with those of Israel, and warning against the West’s growing dependence on imported oil. “Our foreign policy was so proIsrael that we alienated the Arabs,” he said in a speech in 1994, “yet our energy policy, such as it was, made us dependent on Arab oil.” But as Robert Kaplan wrote in his book “Arabists: The Romance of an American Elite” (1995), Akins also maintained that he had tried to help build understanding between Saudi Arabia and Israel, asserting that he had moved King Faisal from eschewing the very idea of a Jewish state to accepting the legitimacy of Israel within the borders that existed before its 1967 war with Arab countries.

Kent Couch waves farewell to the crowd as volunteers release him and he heads skyward, accompanied by John Freis in his own flying contraption, back right.

Balloons Continued from B1 Freis, 59, from San Diego, was inspired to take up cluster ballooning upon hearing of Couch’s 2008 flight. After consulting with Couch, Freis hit the hardware store and fashioned his own flying machine. He took to the skies for the first time in October, launching from Borrego Springs, Calif., and flying 46 miles with Couch looking on. That first flight “scared the living crap out of me,” Freis said, but the thrill of the experience brought him back for a second attempt. His family hasn’t encouraged him in his new pursuit — but they’re not discouraging him either. “(My wife), she said ‘knock yourself out,’” Freis said. “My wife and I aren’t getting along too well right now, so this is the best thing that ever happened to her,” he said. Couch’s friend, Brian Mickey, said the preflight preparations Saturday were chaotic, but pretty much what he’s come to expect from his friend. “It’s wild in there; it’s crazy,” said Mickey, 40, of Bend. “He’s kind of a seat-of-the-pants kind of guy, and does things on the go better than anybody.” With roughly 150 balloons tethered to the two lawn chairs by 6:30 a.m. Saturday, Couch and Freis paced the parking lot, double-checked their supplies, and donned snow gear, anticipat-

Care Continued from B1 The group has had a lot of help so far, with a mechanic at Superior Automotive Technology volunteering his time and Consolidated Towing helping to move the bus around for free. He said local veterans, notably Zin Watford, a retired Marine, have helped get the project up and running. Another big task: finding volunteers who will donate their time to drive the bus and treat patients. Ron Brown, a volunteer with Volunteers in Medicine, a nonprofit clinic that serves uninsured and low-income people in the area, said he’s hoping to get volunteers from throughout the local medical community. More volunteers will mean more days the bus can head out to homeless camps. Brown said he hopes dental

ing temperatures at their cruising altitude of 15,000 to 18,000 feet to be somewhere around 15 degrees. Volunteers held the chairs to the ground as Couch and Freis settled into their chairs and posed for a few final pictures. Joined by a swelling crowd, an announcer counted down from 10. The volunteers unweighted the two lawn chairs, and Couch and Freis lurched skyward, climbing higher than Pilot Butte within the first minute. Scattered shouts of alarm could be heard as a few balloons burst on the way up, but quieted as the

two bundles of balloons shrank in the sky and slowly drifted east. Malane Bryant, Couch’s sister-in-law and part of the ground crew, said she has no interest in joining her brother-in-law on a future flight, but fully understands what motivates him. “I wouldn’t say he’s insane. I’d say he’s got a lot of courage,” she said. “He’s a little unusual, but it takes courage to live your dream and be a cloud.”

services will be a part of the effort along with other medical care. “Two of the biggest problems are dental and podiatry,” he said. “A lot of the podiatry things can be taken care of on-site. You need water, soap, tools and equipment. There may be a need down the road for tetanus shots and vaccinations at some point.” People with more serious medical conditions could be transported to a medical facility or get help with referrals for an appointment at a later time. Cindy Pasko, director of community development for the Partnership to End Poverty, said people living in homeless camps are often miles away from medical clinics and don’t have any way to get the help they need. Others who find a way to get into Bend or Redmond or another city with a medical clinic find themselves bounced from place to place without getting treated. “A lot of people that have been

disabled, injured or have untreated mental illnesses end up homeless,” she said. Hemingway said the bus would probably start out in Deschutes County, but could later branch out to serve people in Crook and Jefferson counties. He said he also hopes to work with other local nonprofit groups that are working on a similar project. United Way of Deschutes County and the Partnership to End Poverty recently applied for a $90,000 Oregon Community Foundation grant that would pay for staffing and equipment of a traveling health services van. The van would visit Bend twice a year and make an annual stop in other local cities. The groups will find out if they get the money sometime in the next few months.

Continued from B1 The district has a large number of kids participating this summer in the junior lifeguard program and in a new program called sitters-in-training, designed to teach kids to be responsible baby sitters. Part of that training requires the volunteers to work in the day care facility at Juniper. “It’s more volunteers than we had in the past,” Johnson said. “My speculation is that it’s in part that parents want their kids doing something, not just sitting around.” She said it’s also likely because many of the teens in the programs are a bit young for the job market but feel too old to participate in camps. “Those kids are getting prejob skills and learning responsibility and commitment,” Johnson said. “This is a way for them to be involved with something and hopefully have something at the end they can use to put on a résumé or something that will help them get their foot in the door later on for a job.” That’s Katie Taylor’s hope. The 15-year-old thought she’d get a summer job, but quickly discovered that few places will hire a 15-year-old because of Oregon labor laws regarding when and how minors can work. She applied to be a swim instructor at the fitness center but didn’t get an interview; that’s when she decided to volunteer instead. Now she’s volunteering with MAGIC in the Park, a free recreation program for children. Katie helps with arts and crafts projects, plays games and serves as a role model for the children who attend. “I think it’s a good way to get job experience, and I think it will prepare me better for when I can get a job,” she said. “Also, it’s good for me to do it. I think it makes me feel better about myself, so I feel like I’m not just wasting time at home.” Katie’s not alone. Taffy Gleason, the executive director of Bend’s Community Center, said the number of teens volunteering at the center has doubled this summer, from 10 to 20. She said she’s heard some of them say they’re unable to get jobs.

To volunteer F or more information on volunteering at local community organizations, go to www or volunteer. “The other thing is they’re coming in to try to gain experience so that they can go out and get a job at some other point in the road,” she said. “Because that’s one of the big issues — the kids have to compete with people who have experience, and they don’t have any.” Many of the volunteers, she said, hope to use center staff as future employment references. St. Charles Bend Volunteer Assistant Debbie Zullo said she sees plenty of teenagers looking to volunteer in the summer. “They’re trying to get the experience of being in a hospital setting,” she said. “On the college applications, volunteering looks very good. And some have different programs they want to get into that want to see a health center experience.” One of those volunteers is Lillian Sawyer, 19, who volunteers for three hours one day each week at the St. Charles Bend emergency room. Sawyer works at the medical center at the University of Puget Sound, where she’s a student. But because she wasn’t going to be home in Bend for long this summer, she didn’t bother to try to find a summer job. Plus, the volunteer work will likely help her in the future; she hopes to go to graduate school and work in the medical field. “I love being at hospitals, and it also helps for pre-med and graduate school applications,” she said. Right now, Sawyer works in the emergency room greeting patients and making sure their needs aren’t immediate. When family or friends come to visit, she looks up patients to see whether they’re allowed to have visitors. “It’s about talking to people who are not at their best, they’re kind of freaking out,” she said. “It’s good to learn to be in a stressful situation and be the calm one.

It’s also cool to walk around the ER and see how it operates.” Some teens aren’t upset that they haven’t found jobs, but their parents are. Jessica Knight, who works at VolunteerConnect, said she’s received plenty of calls from parents looking to keep their kids busy in the absence of a summer job. “It’s more tricky when the parent is calling for a 14-year-old,” she said. “It needs to come from the teen.” That sounds like Paris Draheim, 15, who volunteered at the Deschutes Public Library system during the school year and decided to keep it up this summer. Even though she found a job selling Popsicles on her bike this summer for about 25 to 30 hours each week, she decided to keep volunteering. “It looks good on your résumé,” she said. “I don’t think I would ever be able to go to someone and say, ‘I can’t volunteer anymore.’ And it feels good, even if I’m just organizing books and stuff. And I know it helps people who work at the library.” Paris said she’d prefer to read to kids, but she’s happy with the circulation work as well. She admitted, though, that if she got a full-time job, it might be harder to commit to continued volunteering. “If I had a full-time job working at a coffee shop or something, I probably wouldn’t volunteer unless I had days off where I could,” she said. “If I worked four days a week, those days I have off I would want to just hang out.” Sheila G.

Jeff Snyder curbs one pool table leg at a time earlier this month at Golden West Billiard in Milwaukie. “We’ve sold tables to every movie star and big athlete you can think of,” says Don Brostoski, Golden West’s president.

Oregon family company a global name in billiards By Bobby Allyn The Oregonian

MILWAUKIE — Of the roughly 45,000 pool tables sold in the U.S. last year, 5,000 were forged in Oregon using domestic raw materials in a family-owned shop. As Terry Moldenhauer, sales manager at Golden West Billiards, gave a tour of the factory just north of Milwaukie one recent afternoon, U.S. and Oregon State University flags hung from the ceiling, capturing the national and local allegiances that have kept this family-run company alive for more than 40 years. All of Golden West’s handiwork, from woodcutting to final laminating, is done at 5505 S.E. Johnson Creek Blvd., where the company moved in 1992 after more than two decades in the Los Angeles area. But the privately held company’s customers are spread across the globe, from Washington, D.C., to Saudi Arabia. They accounted for annual revenue that surpassed $1 million last year, according to Moldenhauer.

“We’ve sold tables to every movie star and big athlete you can think of,” said Don Brostoski, Golden West’s president. “In fact, we just made a real tall pool table for Randy Johnson,” the 6-foot-10 retired major league pitcher. Moldenhauer said Golden West tables have been in dozens of movies, purchased by scores of Alist celebrities and rented one time by the Rolling Stones.

Cost of quality The craftsmanship comes with a hefty price tag, climbing all the way to $70,000 for antique restorations. The company sells some of its more affordable tables on Craigslist, starting around $1,500. For comparison, the typical price of a prefabricated pool table from a chain retailer hovers just under $1,000. Those tables might be more economical, but Golden West says its cachet and big-name clients are a testament to quality. Even the tables it sells on Craigslist have customizable features,

with variations in cloth, wood inlays and table rails. Assembly takes up to six weeks, depending on the order’s complexity. No matter how granular the wood detailing, all plywood is sourced from North Pacific Lumber in Portland. For hardwood, the company turns to Sherwoodbased Hardwood Industries, which gets cherry, maple and pine from the East Coast. For exotic mahogany, Hardwood Industries imports from South America and Africa, adding a caveat to Golden West’s homegrown approval seal for special orders. Yet even in a highly specialized market, the economy has battered Golden West some; the company has halved its production workers, who make up about 80 percent of the company’s employees, from 60 to 30. The company has seen demand decline over the past couple of years, notably among national dealers in states that have been hamstrung by debt and low consumer spending.

Rain or shine, the Oregon Coast’s the People’s Coast By Andrea Sachs The Washington Post

The tip came from a man with no hair on his head and plenty of insulation on his body. He was standing at a viewpoint in Cape Meares, a panoramic detour along the Oregon Coast whose natural beauty typically lulls visitors into hushed reverence. But not this guy, who was pointing out a pocket beach tucked between colossal rock formations to a friend. He blurted out its whereabouts for all within decibel range to hear. “That’s Hidden Beach,” he said, making its name now obsolete. “You have to hike down a trail that zigzags about a mile, a mile and a quarter. Most people won’t make the trek, so you pretty much have it to yourself.” In so many other summery destinations, this man would be muffled for giving away such a secret. But not here, where the beaches — including the ones requiring hardy constitutions to reach — are for and of the people. “Oregon’s coast is 100 percent public. There are no fiefdoms,” said Kevin Max, publisher and editor of the quarterly 1859 Oregon’s Magazine. “It’s called the People’s Coast for a reason.” See Coast / C4

Darcy Justice and student Reece Hammond, 6, wait for a horse to arrive before a riding session at Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center. Justice has volunteered at the nonprofit riding facility for about two years, and was recently recognized with a Volunteer of the Year award from the Network of Volunteer Administrators.

Helpers like Darcy Justice critical to mission of Healing Reins SPOTLIGHT By David Jasper The Bulletin


arcy Justice went “side walking” Tuesday. That’s what the folks at Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center call it when a volunteer walks alongside a special-needs child or adult riding one of the trained horses. Walking alongside a horse may not sound like a lot on the surface, but it’s critical here: Side walkers help ensure the riders, some of whom may be inexperienced or nervous around horses, feel and stay safe. Healing Reins’ mission, after all, is to heal with horses, explains Program Director Penny Campbell. “Our philosophy is, we’re providing animal-assisted activities and therapies to children and adults with special needs.” Those special needs can be physical, cognitive or emotional, she added. “So it’s a pretty wide range of people that we support, but horses help so many people in so many ways that we’ve chosen to keep that audience and participation pretty wide.” A wide range of volunteers, from many walks of life, come to the nonprofit facility, located east of Bend on Billadeau Road near Horse Butte. Some are as young as 14. Others are working professionals. There are retirees and whole families who lead horses, clean stalls, shovel hay and pull weeds at Healing Reins, which relies on volunteers to fill about 120 slots per week, Campbell says. Volunteers come from as far away as Prineville, Terrebonne and La Pine, according to Sarah Smith, volunteer coordinator. Some, like Justice, help at the facility two or three times a week. Smith calls her “the unconditional volunteer.” See Volunteer / C8

Fleck to play holiday show for KPOV Banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck and his band, the Flecktones, will return to Bend on Dec. 8 to play a holiday concert at Mountain View High School. The show will benefit Bend’s community radio station, KPOV, which is looking for individuals and organizations in the community to sponsor the event. If you’re interested in more information on sponsorship opportunities, contact or 541-322-0863. Fleck and the Flecktones are masters of modern improvisation, fusing bluegrass, jazz and other styles into their singular sound. In Bend, they’ll have the Tuvan throat-singing group Alash warm up the crowd. Tickets for the 7 p.m. show cost $33$40 in advance for KPOV members, $35-$42 in advance for nonmembers, and $40-$47 at the door. Tickets will be available through KPOV closer to the show date. Contact: 541-322-0863 or

Music in Public Places canceled

Correction In an anniversary announcement headlined “Jaques,” which appeared on Sunday, July 18, on Page C6, the number of years the couple has lived in Central Oregon was incorrect. They have lived here their entire lives. The corrected Jaques anniversary can be seen today on Page C6. The Bulletin regrets the error.

In-laws pressure new nurse to give them private care Dear Abby: I will graduate soon with a degree in nursing. This is a dream that is finally coming true. The problem is my mother-in-law expects me to take care of her and my fatherin-law. They both have health issues, but nothing that requires 24-hour nursing care, and their medical issues can be resolved by simply taking their medications and following their doctors’ advice. I offered to help pay for home health care, but she said she doesn’t want “outside” help. She expects me to uproot my family, move in with them and provide round-the-clock care, free of charge. I have worked hard to take care of my husband and children. I can’t make a living working for free. I don’t know how to say no without causing a major rift in the family. My mother-in-law doesn’t take rejection well. Please help me. — Feeling Trapped in Arizona Dear Feeling Trapped: One of the hardest words in the English language for some people to say is “no.” But if you don’t master the art of standing up for yourself in a “charming” way, you will spend the rest of your in-laws’ lives in indentured servitude. So tell your mother-in-law that you have worked hard to get your nursing degree, and now you will be starting a career in the field. Tell her that you will gladly “oversee” their care — from a distance — but that you are not uprooting the family and moving in with them because it would be too disruptive. This is not “rejection.” It is sanity. And it goes without saying your husband should back you up. Dear Abby: My oldest granddaughter, “Allie,” is a psychiatrist. I have always loved her, been proud of her accomplishments and have had a warm relationship with her. Her mother — my daughter — got drunk and made sev-

DEAR ABBY eral angry, harsh phone calls to Allie. Since then, Allie has refused contact with everyone in the family. I have written to her numerous times and so has my daughter, begging for forgiveness. My daughter has quit drinking, thanks to the patience and loving support of my family. She has also come out of an abusive marriage. Allie gave birth to a baby girl last year. I have never seen my great-grandchild and it breaks my heart. Abby, what can I do to restore a good relationship with my granddaughter? I love her and pray for her every day. — Grieving Grandma Dear Grieving Grandma: As your letter proves, being a mental health professional does not exempt someone from having family problems. Depending upon what your daughter said to Allie, it is understandable that she might want to protect herself — and her baby — from her verbally abusive, alcoholic parent. While it may be harsh for Allie to have cut off contact with all of her maternal relatives, including you, she may have done so to prevent you from trying to pressure her to “forgive” her mother for what has been an ongoing pattern of behavior. Write Allie one more letter advising her that her mother is no longer drinking and has left her abusive marriage. Continue loving and praying for her. But until your granddaughter decides on her own to relent, there is nothing you can do to “fix” this. I’m sorry. 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.

C4 Sunday, July 25, 2010 • THE BULLETIN


At first glance

Continued from C1 The populist notion sprang from a 1913 law that decreed the state’s tidelands to be public highways, guaranteeing unencumbered access to the 363-mile coastline. A second bill passed in 1967 further quashed attempts to privatize the coast, declaring “free and uninterrupted use of the beaches” between the lowwater mark and the vegetation line. The state has also draped much of the coast in a protective shield, placing many of the seaside areas under the purview of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Additionally, hundreds of islands, rocks, reefs, bays and estuaries are safeguarded by the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex — so don’t even think about scaling Cannon Beach’s Haystack Rock. “It’s a wild coast, that’s for sure,” said Stephen “Dr. Beach” Leatherman, who releases a Top 10 list of America’s best swimming beaches each year. “It’s a lot of nature.” The Oregon Coast is not your typical Bain de Soleil holiday, however. Raindrops occasionally drip on beachgoers’ heads — this is the Oregon Coast, after all, with only three months of sunshine a year — and coldwater temperatures benumb swimmers’ fingers and toes. In fact, many folks treat the beach not as a giant soft towel but as a staging ground for their active pursuits. “People don’t really lie around the beach much,” said Leatherman. “They dig for clams, fly kites, build bonfires and sand castles, go camping, splash around and explore tidal pools.” So for my 117-mile excursion from Seaside southward to Newport, I stuffed my canvas bag with flip-flops, hiking boots, a maillot and a raincoat — Oregon’s beach essentials.

Before landing in Seaside, a town of about 6,500 and less than 80 miles west of Portland, I harbored an ill-conceived impression of the coast. I imagined Oregon’s beaches as being riddled with rocks, strewn with logs and frothy with waves, as if sea nymphs were releasing shaken soda bottles underwater. The reality was quite the opposite. The beaches I visited were covered in soft sand the color of toasted almonds, with no trash (made by Earth or man) marring the broad stretches. A few areas were pebbly — I stubbed my toe on a cluster of rocks on the southern end of Seaside — but most of the dramatic formations stayed offshore, granite sculptures best appreciated from afar. The Pacific Northwest coast, however, is not for the timid. A sign at Oceanside Beach, for instance, warned of unusually high sneaker (as in they sneak up on you) waves, stray rocks, strong currents and incoming tides, steep cliffs, drifting logs and waves crashing over jetties. The water temperature also hovers in the 50s, which — not to shock you — can lead to fatal hypothermia in an hour. Standard advice: Know the tides or find a swimming pool or (my own suggestion) enjoy the beach from 1,500 feet above ground. South of Seaside, Capt. Gary Turel pilots a five-person helicopter on aerial tours that last from five to 15 minutes. It’s a quick trip, so wait till after the ride to blink. Our excursion started with a beam-me-up ascent, then a left hook over dense spruce forests to the flat sands of Seaside. From this vantage point, I could clearly see the jigsaw puzzle of nature and civilization, all components fitting snugly together. “The helicopter gives you a larger perspective of how the topography works with the beach line,” said Turel, who opened his

Things to see, do along the northern and central Oregon Coast GETTING THERE

Rates from $75. company, Seaside Helicopters, nearly 10 years ago. Aware of the fleeting time, I kept my eyes in dilated-pupil mode. After coasting over Seaside, our captain inched north to Gearhart, where flea-size cars drove onto the beach and parked in the waves’ spray. (Beach driving is allowed in certain locations.) Swooping back south, the copter glided over a forested mountain that divides Seaside and Cannon Beach. Turel informed us that in the early 19th century, William Clark (half of the Lewis-and team) and a small corps trekked over this hilly terrain, now part of Ecola State Park, to claim a beached whale on the other side. We searched below for hikers and elk — “I really need to put a guy down there in an elk costume,” Turel joked — but had better luck sighting Hollywood film locales: the picnic spot from “Kindergarten Cop,” the (standin Australian) surf spot from “Point Break,” the immortalized sea stack in “The Goonies.” Gen Xers, you know the scene.

On foot Back on the ground, I returned to the places in Seaside, Oregon’s first ocean resort, that had resembled imperceptible smudges from the helicopter. I walked “The Prom,” the 1.8-mile promenade that parallels the more than 250foot-wide beach, and hopped off at the statue of Lewis and Clark, the entry point to the compact commercial area. The “downtown,” touched with art deco flourishes and Popsicle colors, is dominated by stores hawking summer staples, including local Tillamook ice cream, taffy in such Oregonian flavors as marionberry and huckleberry, and plastic buckets and shovels for sand-castle construction projects. At Funland Arcade, open since 1931, a grizzled man named Tim was playing the skeeball-style game of Fascination with the intense concentration of a gambler. Twice a day, he explained, the establishment holds Blackout, which challenges players to roll a ball into each of 25 holes. The winner

receives 10 coupons, which can be cashed in for a host of prizes, some junky, others nice enough to give as wedding gifts. As we chatted, Tim, a frequent player, won a Blackout game, the only incitement I needed to grab a seat. I threw down my 75 cents and was two holes from a win when the clean-cut guy to my right, who paid for his game with a $100 bill, scored a win. He won again and again, which meant that Tim and I lost and lost. I didn’t feel too bad for Tim, though: He has already scored DVD players, a telescope, a TV set, a Leatherman knife for his son’s birthday, a scale and more. Because of the coast’s volatile weather, you should plot out the nearest shelter before heading to the beach, and in case the rain persists, a Plan B of indoor activities. A Fascination marathon, for example.

How to visit New York City on a budget By Sharon Harvey Rosenberg and Myscha Theriault McClatchy-Tribune News Service

The Big Apple is one of the most expensive places in the world, but Lauren Fairbanks, writer of a New York City blog, knows how to tour NYC on a shoestring. Her first tip? Check out Prospect Park in Brooklyn, which has free music and dance acts during summer months. For comedy, Fairbanks recommends the complimentary midnight performances on Wednesdays at the UCB Theater. Fairbanks also enjoys the free rides on the Staten Island ferry, which provide a great vantage point for photos of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. Here are other options: • Entertainment: Podcast personality Brian Peters, of, is an avid traveler. He recommends free tours through Big Apple Greet-

ers. This not-for-profit organization is staffed by volunteers who greet travelers in more than 20 languages and offers free tours with a strict “no tipping” policy. For more information, go to • Food: Pamela Parisi, of, dines for a buck in midtown Manhattan. Her menu includes pizza for $1 a slice at Bros Pizza and Z Deli. Poultry fans can score Southern-fried goodness at Piece of Chicken for a buck, and fresh produce is sold for $1 per pound at the Stiles Farmers’ Market. • Lodging: Pauline Frommer, author of “New York City: Spend Less See More,” had the inside scoop on where to rest your head on a budget. Dorm-style rooms can be booked at the Gershwin Hotel ( for as little as $34 per night, according to Frommer. •Low-cost museums: Many New

York museums offer flexible admission prices or other discounts. For example, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has “recommended” prices of $20 for adults, $15 seniors and $10 for students. Those are suggested prices, and visitors can pay any amount — no matter how small — to tour the museum. Of course, it’s good to support the Met by paying full fare, but if your budget is tight, remember prices are flexible. Free museums include the Forbes Galleries, with displays of collectible toys and other objects, and the Sony Wonder Technology Lab, which offers free exhibits, entertainment and high-tech labs. offers a comprehensive list of free museums and gardens in New York City. The list also includes information about free admission days at museums, zoos and other exhibits. writers Sharon Harvey Rosenberg and Myscha

Stunning views of Ocean Lighthouse and Beaches Center of Newport at Nye Beach Reasonable Rates Call 1-800-282-6993

C OV ER S T ORY From previous page As I traveled south to Lincoln City, the weather was still on my side. At Cape Lookout State Park, I hiked down the steep South Trail, arriving warm and dry on a beach so empty that I saw only my own tracks stalking me. I considered backtracking to Hidden Beach, but with my legs wobbly from the three-mile trek, I opted for a drive on the beach in Pacific City. Parked on the waterline, I watched the surfers power through the waves from the comfort of the driver’s seat. When the precipitation hit hard, I let the available parking spots dictate my itinerary. In Newport, I found a vacancy near the front door of the Hatfield Marine Science Center, which contained a Neptunian world inhabited by Deriq the giant Pacific octopus, candy-colored sea anemone and sea stars, and a wolf eel that refused its lunch during the public feeding. At the Newport Visual Arts Center, I dashed from my car to an exhibit of ethereal glass sculptures. When the rain briefly subsided, my spot was close enough to Nye Beach that I bounded out for a quick run on the sand, staying outside until the drops forced me back in. “Rain or shine, there’s always something you can do,” said Helen Wellman, a volunteer at the arts center. “Newport has everyday things to do, and the library doesn’t charge overdue fines.”

Seafood Lee Gray, a forager and chef, studies tidal charts, not climate reports. Mussels and barnacles appear on the beach rain or shine, but they disappear with the rising tides. I joined Gray at 9:30 a.m., low tide in Lincoln City. He was dressed in waterproof boots, a striped hoodie and a blue beret jauntily tipped to the side. He carried a bucket and some tools commonly found in a garage. A former chef in Los Angeles, Gray moved to Oregon in the 1980s to escape what he considered to be the culinary wasteland of SoCal. He divested himself of his belongings and spent 3½ months inhabiting a sea cave. Though he now lives on dry land, he has not abandoned his primitive shopping skills. He forages for a living, selling his finds to local restaurants, and leads classes in the tidal pools and in surrounding forests rife with mushrooms. Our movable feast started in the sparse vegetation at the sand’s edges. “Bet you’d never expect to find edible greens at the beach,” Gray said, plucking a purple-flowered beach pea for an appetizer. He picked a few more greens that I obediently chewed. Then he said, “Now we are going to eat off the rocks.” As we clambered through the rocky tidal pools, he handed me ropes of seaweed, including sea lettuce that opened into sheets all ready for sushi fixings. We moisturized our skin with the carrageenan released from a brown algae with pil-

Fifteen-minute helicopter tours offered by Seaside Helicopters give tourists perspective on the range of topography of the Oregon Coast beach line.

“You can come out here and get a garden salad and a seaweed salad, and all the meat you want.” — Lee Gray, forager and chef of The Wild Gourmet in Lincoln City lowy pouches and nibbled rubbery elkhorn kelp. However, I clamped my mouth shut when he dipped into a shallow and plucked out a sea louse. Yes, sea lice, squiggling around in his hand and now coursing down his throat. “They’re fun to chew on,” he said. “They’re sweet, and a good source of protein.” I’ll stick with lentils, thanks. In the open-air touch tank, I placed my finger inside a sea anemone, feeling the creature grip my finger like a child’s pudgy hand. Lee described the time he steamed sea anemone for dinner, which landed him in the hospital. “I burned a hole in my stomach.” In case I had a desire to duplicate his meal, he reminded me to always cut off the toxic tentacles. By this time in our outing, I was stuffed and Gray needed to complete his foraging for an upcoming dinner party. To reap the ocean’s bounty, Oregon requires licenses and sets per-person quotas. For mussels, the max is 72 a day; marine invertebrates, 10 total per day. Armed with a forked weed puller, Gray filled his bucket with the legal limit of shellfish. With his entree complete, he needed a few ghost shrimp, which burrow in the muck of

Siletz Bay; he’d serve them panfried with a Tillamook cheese sauce. “You can come out here and get a garden salad and a seaweed salad, and all the meat you want,” he said. But for the cheese sauce, he had to go to the market.

Getting wet Most of the people you see in the ocean here are surfers mummified in neoprene and kids who don’t know any better. But summertime doesn’t feel right without some kind of splash in the water. Stand-up paddling, the fastestgrowing water sport in the world, is a creative alternative: As long as you stay vertical, you can be “on” the water, not “in” it. “Most of our water sports take place in the ocean, and you are either submerged or saturated,” said Ken Wilson, who teaches paddling in Lincoln City. “With stand-up paddling, you are only in the water momentarily. Just the comfort factor goes a long way.” A cheerful surfer whose knuckle tattoo spells out his favorite surf spot, Wilson never puts beginners in the ocean, basically to avoid serious frustrations and injuries. Instead, he picks calmer puddles, such as Devil’s Lake, a three-mile-long body of water with gentle ripples and vibrant wildlife. Dressed in a thick wet suit with booties, gloves and a hood, I followed Wilson’s motions as he mounted his board as it lay on the ground and began paddling the grass. “The beauty of this sport is that you can learn on your knees or your butt,” he said. “It’s advanced from kaya-

king, with better views because you are standing up.” We pushed off from the shore and, as instructed, I paddled in a praying position, getting a feel for the rhythm and balance. After about five minutes, I pulled myself up, straightened my knees and, like a baby taking its first step, stood, fumbled, resumed stance. I mastered smooth strokes and carefully looked up when Wilson pointed out an osprey in a tree eating a fish and a bald eagle soaring overhead. The foil to my perfect ride was not the deer swimming across the lake but overconfidence. Wilson was chattering on about how easy the sport is and I stupidly nodded in agreement. Plop I went. I quickly hopped back on, unfazed. I was determined to paddle to the end of the lake, where, standing atop my board, I would look through a clearing and see a sliver of ocean, the waves pounding the Oregon shores with wild abandon.

With this ring, I thee what? These days, a ring on the ring finger can communicate a variety of things By Andrew Adam Newman New York Times News Service

A celebrity’s left hand can often break big news. “Sandra Bullock Not Wearing Wedding Ring,” one recent tabloid headline said. Another: “Tiger Woods’ Wife Spotted Ringless!” But these days the symbolism of a gold band — or its absence — may not be so clear-cut. When her divorce was nearly final three years ago, Wanda Dibben, 41, who lives outside Kansas City, Mo., asked a jeweler, George Rousis, to transform her wedding ring into a divorce ring. Dibben, who had been married 13 years, said she had been “very attached” to her wedding ring and hoped that reconfiguring it could “be kind of a buffer into my independence again and help facilitate healing.” Her jeweler severed the gold band and refashioned it into a ring with a gap, across which strands of silver are stitched. For Dibben, those strands represent her son, Trevor, now 14, “because although the bonds have been broken, the stitches still keep that unity together,” she said. While divorce rings are not exactly all the rage, they are showing up here and there, as are other rings that are worn on the ring finger but signify something else. Single and looking? Perhaps you need a silver band with a symbol of Mars or Venus on it, like the ones sold for gay and straight people at MySingleRing. com. The site says that those who wear its rings project to the outside world: “I am an intelligent, empowered individual and available to meet the same.” And they aren’t the only ones thinking outside the jewelry box. Harold Thompson, who has been divorced twice and lives in

Wilmington, N.C., is a founder of D Jewelry Co., which sells divorce rings online. Its tagline: “Building self-esteem one person at a time.” His rings, which resemble traditional wedding bands except for a gap in the center, sell for $200 to $500. They have a “dual purpose,” according to the company’s website, not only as “attractive jewelry” but also as “a healing tool for broken hearts.” Never married? No worries. The Ah Ring, which stands for “available and happy,” is a $350 band with diamonds that is meant to be worn on the pinky. The ring’s meaning is hard to discern, because it looks like a silver band sprinkled with diamonds. And the website that sells it, apparently not wanting to ward off any potential customers, says that while the Ah ring was “originally created for confident and joyful single women,” others can wear it because the “Ah” can also stand for “attached and happy.” Della Beaver, who lives outside Philadelphia and manages operations for a medical referral service, bought herself an Ah Ring for her 50th birthday last June. She has never been married. “Usually men buy you diamonds, and I was like, ‘Why can’t I just buy my own diamond?’” Beaver said. “So the ring was liberating for me, because I don’t need others to tell me that I’m beautiful, I’m sexy, I’m intelligent, I’m fabulous just as I am.” Women are not the only buyers in this category. Tim Gould, president of My Single Ring, said that of the nearly 1,000 rings he has sold since starting the online business last year — at $40 each — about 30 percent have been to men. Andrea Helms, 36, an opera-

Dibben’s ring. tions manager at an insurance company who is from Chicago, said she wears My Single Ring “to say that I’m comfortable being single” but in a way that is more discreet than “a neon sign on my forehead that says ‘single and looking.’ ” It did indeed get her a date: Helms was at a Chicago Cubs game wearing her My Single Ring when she was approached by Scott Gilbert, an owner of the company, who naturally was also wearing the ring. He asked her out, and they dated for a couple months — but not anymore — during which time Gilbert continued to wear his single ring as a “marketing tool,” Helms said. She said that some of her friends think wearing a ring that telegraphs one’s availability has its down side. If an unwanted suitor won’t leave you alone, it’s hard to play the boyfriend card. In that situation, a woman might prefer the Taken ring, which, at $30, is more of a gag gift. Also introduced in 2009 — and scheduled to be featured in Snuggie-like infomercials — it is a silver and crystal engagement-ring look-alike that can be slipped on as needed to thwart the advances of pushy guys. Then there is a more serious emerging category: specialty rings for gay men and lesbians. When Jeffrey Hames, 48, and

Wanda Dibben, 41, displays her wedding ring, which she had turned into a divorce ring by her jeweler, in Parkville, Mo., in May. The strands of silver stitched across the gap represent her continuing unity with her son Trevor. Today, a gold band — or its absence — can mean a variety of things. Kenneth Daniel, 36, who live in Memphis and will be married in September on Cape Cod, decided to wed, “I did not want to go the traditional route, like Zales or other jewelers, where their wedding rings are tailored to being for a straight man and a straight women,” said Daniel, a payroll

administrator. The couple shopped at www, which sells wedding and commitment ceremony rings for same-sex couples by jewelry designer Udi Behr. They selected matching white gold rings, each costing $1,895 and consisting of two interlock-

ing bands bearing the classic male gender symbol (a circle with an arrow pointing up and to the right). Hames and Daniel are each wearing one of the bands during their engagement and will exchange the second during their ceremony.

that award,” says Smith. “It’s a tough competition out there. Bend is an incredible community for volunteers.” Not every region can boast such a giving population, she adds. Justice “can step into any situation, any scenario that we have” and has “the ability to meet the need of that rider without getting in the way,” Smith says. She has energy, charisma and passion, Smith adds. “She’s always willing to jump in at the last minute.” Executive Director Dita Keith adds that Justice is “very empathetic, a very nurturing individual, which is really the primary ingredient in the relationship between the participants and the volunteers.”

Continued from C1 “She’s very adaptive, and there are no conditions,” Smith says of Justice. “She has proven that she means it through her work. She’s serious about it. She’s not out here to win accolades. People have goals: Her goal is to better the lives of others in this community.”

‘I was just amazed’ Tuesday, Justice was working with Reece Hammond, 6. Born prematurely, he has motor-skill issues that tend to make him walk on his tiptoes, says his mother, Jen Hammond, waiting for Reece to finish his session with Leo, a 9year-old quarter horse. Participants in Healing Reins’ program ride once a week during eight-week sessions, which are held year-round. Reece usually participates in every other session, his mother says. “Riding a horse builds the core strength, which actually makes him walk less on his toes,” she says, “so we don’t have to do anything like tendon surgery now. It’s just naturally been working.” Justice, 51, says she can see the changes in riders at the facility. “We have one kid who has autism that (could) hardly verbalize when I first started working with him. “I just had the chance to sub in on one of his lessons recently, and he was verbalizing so much more. I was just amazed. I’ve seen a huge difference in him. “You do see some breakthroughs — some kids who don’t want to talk, or come here and have never been around horses and get very scared and crying — and after a couple of lessons they’re laughing and off riding.” Justice got her first pony when she was 3 and growing up on the Oregon Coast. When she was living in Salem, she had a quarter and an Arabian. She moved to Central Oregon 16 years ago, “and I’m not leaving,” she says, laughing. The move here necessitated the sale of her horses. Volunteering at Healing Reins, which she started doing a little more than two years ago, became “a great way to get a horse fix,” says Justice.

Volunteer Darcy Justice, 51, helps participant Reece Hammond, 6, don his helmet Tuesday at Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center. Horse-riding therapy has helped Reece build his core strength. Justice had recently been studying elementary education, but is taking a break from school while her husband deals with medical issues. This is not her first taste of public service. She helped at her two daughters’ schools while they were growing up, and has tutored young readers through Start Making a Reader Today. She also has chipped in at High Desert Museum and during Pole Pedal Paddle. “You get so much from it,” she says. “It’s so satisfying.” Like many volunteers, she feels she derives plenty from giving. “Oh, yes. You learn so much about yourself, and the riders are so appreciative of the time that you give,” she says. “Just seeing that difference that we’re making in their lives makes such a huge difference in mine.” Justice believes participants in the program benefit through the connection they make with the horses they ride. “Horses are such loving beings, and they have so much to give. And I think the riders recognize that and make that attachment,” she says. At Healing Reins, Justice is known for her willingness to per-

the Year in May by the Network of Volunteer Administrators. “I was so excited when she won

Campbell has been with Healing Reins since its inception in 1999, when it borrowed space at Horse Butte Equestrian Center, not far from the current location. “We started with four borrowed horses and 12 volunteers and four riders. And that was our first session,” Campbell says. Now, Healing Reins accommodates about 85 riders weekly.

Make no mistake: “You could never do this without volunteers,” she says. “If you tried to pay staff to cover all of the needs, there’s no way that the program could exist. So 120 people working an hour — probably two — every week; that’s a lot,” she says. “The neat thing about the volunteers here is that they really are part of the team. They are not just people who are in the background.” Healing Reins can always use more volunteers. Some, like Justice, have prior horse experience, but Smith stresses that horse knowledge is not necessary. Says Justice, “It has literally changed my life, and made me realize how special people can be, and how many disabilities there are, and how much we can help them.” “I think everybody should try to volunteer,” she says. “Find what it is that you love, and you can find any organization that will fit what you love, and try to get even an hour here and there. It would make a huge difference in everybody’s lives.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or at

The Avett Brothers risk all to be true to themselves

SUDOKU Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively.

By Jonathan Zwickel The Seattle Times

In 1884, an Australian lawyer paid four seamen to transport a newly purchased yacht from England to Sydney. While under sail near Africa, the Mignonette was wrecked by a rogue wave. The crew retreated to a lifeboat while the boat sank in minutes. Adrift for weeks, more than a thousand miles from any shore, and with scant provisions, the men grew dehydrated and sick. The captain suggested drawing straws to decide who would be killed and eaten — a custom of the sea respected by most sailors of the day. The other men objected. Eventually, the captain decided the youngest mate — wifeless, childless — was to be eaten so the other men may survive. He killed him with a penknife and the men fed on his flesh until their rescue four days later. Upon returning to England, the three survivors were shocked to find themselves charged with murder. The captain insisted his act ensured their survival. He and most of England believed there was no wrongdoing. Despite overwhelming public support, even admiration, the “cannibals” were found guilty. More than 100 years later, the Avett Brothers adopted the story of the Mignonette’s crew as a metaphor for its journey through the music industry. As a modest, locally loved string trio yearning to break out of North Carolina, the group intuited the temptations and compromises it would have to navigate if it hoped to make an honest living doing what it loved. The band’s fourth album was named after the boat. “The captain of the ship didn’t have to tell the truth, but he did,” said Bob Crawford, bassist for the Avett Brothers. “He said, ‘We’re gonna have to tell the truth, even if it hangs us.’ And when we made ‘Mignonette,’ that was our attitude: We’re gonna be true to ourselves even if it leads us to failure. If we’re honest and true to ourselves, we’re always gonna be OK.”

Crawford and the rest of the band are on the tour bus, rolling from Minneapolis to Winnipeg, Canada. Crawford’s sick with a cold and his phone keeps cutting out. Despite less-than-ideal conditions, this is the kind of conversation you have with this band, always. There is no small talk. Nor is there small scale. The band has been moving in bigger and bigger circles for the better half of its career. The original trio — Crawford, plus brothers Scott and Seth Avett, who sing and play banjo and guitar, respectively — has become a quintet: Cellist Joe Kwan came on board a couple of years ago and drummer Jacob Edwards this spring. The band’s breakout album, 2007’s “Emotionalism,” was followed last year by its major-label debut, “I and Love and You.” That record, the Avett Brothers’ seventh, was shepherded by uber-producer Rick Rubin and released on Sony. With that step up came an expansion of the Avetts’ signature sound. To its acoustic folk-pop the band added the sweep and drama of grand piano. Abetted by Rubin, band members composed their most

complex, ambitious songs yet. To some — especially new fans — “I and Love and You” is a heartswelling masterpiece. To others it’s a misstep. “There’s nothing wrong with a band moving in different directions,” Crawford said. “For us it’s important for us to follow our true course. That’s the joy of doing it, you know? And the true excitement is to be able to add new sounds to what you’re doing, never staying the same and always moving toward something else. Arriving someplace else. “When we record the next album, we can genuinely feel good to be moving on to something different. Who knows what that is? Who knows if people will like it? We need to go where we need to go and build on whatever our inspiration is. Hopefully we’ll always stay with an approach like that. If it means a quick end to a career, we’ll do something else, I guess.” Maybe a bit less modest, definitely more than locally loved, the band keeps its integrity intact while navigating a torrential sea. Unlike the Mignonette, this ship’s course has remained true.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, July 25, 2010: This year, you often discover that you are juggling different concerns and people. This trend could become tiresome. Perhaps the only solution might be to mix different elements. Observe a tendency toward black-and-white thinking, which prevents you from seeing alternatives. Surround yourself with different types of thinkers. If you are single, your popularity soars. Make sure that if you think you’ve found the right person, there is a fit. If you are attached, the two of you often are at odds. Respect your differences, and you will take the steam out of the pressure cooker. AQUARIUS is always a friend. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Greet a busy day around friends, family and loved ones. Others could be surprised by what you share. Push comes to shove, as it seems you cannot be everywhere all the time. Tonight: Surrounded by favorite people. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Others expect a lot, especially a parent or someone you look up to. You can juggle the pressure, but you could be frozen, as so many demands are being made. Go off on your own to relax. Tonight: Think “work.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Keep reaching out for others. You have the ability to

understand and empathize with others. When people start to open up, you understand recent blocks or strange behavior. Eye what you want ultimately. Tonight: Don’t stay home; try out a new restaurant or blues club. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Listen to feedback from a partner. This person might be coming from a set position where he or she expects or wants something. Check in with an older relative or friend. Others love your effort. Tonight: Don’t go overboard. There is a tomorrow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH The Full Moon shoves you into the limelight. On some level, someone seems to be holding back and not sharing. News from a distance, possibly coupled with an unanticipated insight, presents new dynamics in an interaction. Tonight: Refuse to do the same old same old. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH What is on your mind is impacting your actions. Try to detach from a recurring inner statement. Be aware of what someone is offering you and where he or she is coming from without coloring the story. A partner gives you important feedback. Listen. Tonight: Make it early. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Don’t put yourself in an either/or situation, but see how you can incorporate both options, plans or people into your life. You might need to eliminate rigid thinking. Sometimes you cannot separate and segment your life. Tonight: Romp away.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Pressure builds. Somehow you wish you could go out and avoid a problem. A roommate or family member could be demanding your attention and effort in a project. Might it be easier to give in? Tonight: Order a pizza or go for Chinese. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You cannot complain about being lonely this Full Moon, but perhaps there are moments when you might feel overwhelmed. Just greet the many calls, suggestions and people with a smile. People care. Consider a vacation in the near future. Tonight: Out and about. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Keep a strong eye on spending, and count your change. If ever you might make a mistake with your funds, it could be under the pressure of the Full Moon. You might need to rethink a work situation that is limiting you. Tonight: Stay within your budget. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Take your bows. This Full Moon frames you. Others notice you, to such an extent that you might want to run away. Ultimately, would it not be better to seize the moment and be open? Someone really needs to let you know how much he or she cares. Tonight: Stop holding back. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HH Make it OK to play the recluse or take a personal day. Given space and permission to do what feels good, you transform fatigue and weariness into energy and a smile. A partner could be unusually uptight about giving you space. Tonight: Do for yourself. © 2010 by King Features Syndicate





Munch & Music Makers of History Debbie Patenburg “I first met Cameron in 1998 when I was Director of Advertising for The Bulletin and he came in to pitch a sponsorship for Munch and Music. I was impressed with the event’s core mission, the Drake Park setting and its potential staying power as an annual gathering spot for locals during Bend’s spectacular summer season. That day, we worked out a deal that positioned The Bulletin as a presenting sponsor for the next decade and secured what has since become Bend’s signature, free summer event. My own kids grew up with Munch and Music and, as such, I have wonderful memories and am honored to have played a small part in its history.” Debbie Pantenburg is currently a partner in a local strategic marketing firm, BNBranding, and continues to attend Munch and Music with her husband, Leon, and almost grown children, Mary and Dan.

Latest accessory of well-equipped band: festival of its own By Seth Schiesel New York Times News Service

MARIAVILLE, N.Y. — Around 2 a.m. Friday on a wooded hillside here, about 30 miles northwest of Albany, a few thousand young music lovers poured into the humid summer darkness from a tent where they had just seen an up-and-coming band with a two-word name. The first word is Holy. The second is anything but. Some of the fans had been seeing live music for almost 12 consecutive hours on the first of three days at Camp Bisco, the weekend celebration of the fusion of electronica and improvisational rock that has become one of the hottest small music festivals in the country. First staged by the Philadelphia jamtronica band the Disco Biscuits in 1999 for 900 fans, Camp Bisco drew close to 10,000 last year. By the time the music finally stops Sunday morning, this year’s camp is expected to attract as many as 15,000 on the strength of a bill that includes established headliners like LCD Soundsystem, Ween and Thievery Corporation, as well as hip electronica and groove music groups including Orchard Lounge, Brothers Past, Girl Talk and the New Deal. “I hope you guys aren’t getting tired yet because I’m just getting started,” cried Jurawa Hallen, 25, as he left the tent, exhorting his crew of a dozen friends to additional early morning shenanigans. A lithe, curly-haired nonprofitevent coordinator from Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, Hallen didn’t really have anything to worry about. Although the official events of the day were over, the forests and fields covered with thousands of tents were throbbing with the beats and bass grooves of innumerable homegrown dance parties. “If you like this kind of music, with DJs and the musical drive of electronica mixed with the spontaneity and energy of live musicians playing real instruments, this is clearly the best festival of the year,” said Hallen, co-captain of New World Orange, one of several fan-organized teams for Camp Bisco’s Color Wars, a series of contests based on traditional children’s camp games (egg toss, relay races, limbo and such), as well as a bacon-cooking competition and Disco Biscuits trivia contest. As the music business continues to shift from an emphasis on recorded-product sales and toward live performances and other kinds of direct engagement with fans, a successful festival of one’s own has become a milestone for the sort of bands that don’t play the same set list night after night. “In the music business in the ’70s you wanted the great FM radio hit,” said Peter Shapiro, publisher of Relix magazine and the owner of Brooklyn Bowl. “In the ’80s you wanted the music video on MTV. In the ’90s you wanted the big record deal, the big record

advance and the big label, and now you want your own festival. The Biscuits have really demonstrated that. “Part of the reason is economic,” Shapiro said in a telephone interview this week. (He was planning to arrive at the festival Friday evening.) “The big record deal doesn’t really exist anymore. All bands make their living by touring now, and what’s the epitome of touring? Your own festival. Instead of you going to your fans, they come to you. You can invite your base and also invite other bands that are aligned with your audience and build that way. Seriously, LCD Soundsystem is one of the hottest bands in the world right now, and for them to play Camp Bisco is really an endorsement of what the Biscuits have built.” With 10,000 to 15,000 fans generally paying around $150 each for weekend admission (plus concessions), Camp Bisco is expected to take in at least a few million dollars. “I’ll just say if it wasn’t profitable, we wouldn’t be doing it,” said Kevin Morris, the Biscuits’ co-manager. Jon Gutwillig, the band’s guitarist, said the festival originally stemmed from the band’s desire to play late-night shows in the summer at an early moment in its career, when established festivals would schedule them only in the afternoon.

“No one would let us headline their festival,” he said, “so we made our own.” Major corporations took notice of the festival’s popularity for the first time this year. At the back of the main music field, a Coke Zero trailer offered an elevated view of the stage, and a Sony PlayStation compound included dozens of

game kiosks with titles including “DJ Hero,” “ModNation Racers” (including a course modeled after the Camp Bisco landscape) and a preview of the coming “Gran Turismo 5.” “Festivals like Camp Bisco provide us with the unique opportunity to interact with a diverse range of consumers who are passionate about music and entertainment, as well as our brand,” said Ginger Kraus, senior director for marketing alliances at Sony Computer Entertainment America. Touring the PlayStation area Thursday afternoon, the Biscuits’ keyboardist, Aron Magner, said: “We’re not giving away shampoo to everyone or allowing in-yourface corporate marketing like that, but if sponsors are willing to deliver something that enhances

“In the ’90s you wanted the big record deal, the big record advance and the big label, and now you want your own festival. The (Disco) Biscuits have really demonstrated that.” — Peter Shapiro, Relix magazine the overall experience for the fans, that’s something we can appreciate. I mean, look at this place, there’s games everywhere. It’s like a playground.” In his mobile home backstage Thursday afternoon, the Biscuits’ bass player, Marc Brownstein, relished the fact that the jamtronica concept pioneered by bands like the Biscuits, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Lotus and Particle has become the dominant new wave within what was once called the “hippie music” scene.

As demonstrated at Camp Bisco, now the band is trying to establish itself as a force in the overall electronic music arena. “Our goal is to be the best live electronica festival in the country,” Brownstein said. “The crossover between these styles of music is a decade old; we’re the only jam band here. Now we’re starting to break through into the mainstream electronica market, and when we really do that, it will be like crashing through a wall.”

Rider claims second victory in High Desert Classics grand prix By Beau Eastes The Bulletin

Megan Jordan is getting mighty comfortable in Bend. One year after winning her first grand prix event in Central Oregon, Jordan claimed her second title, taking first Saturday evening in the Oregon High Desert Classics’ $20,000 Sheri Alllis Memorial Grand Prix at J Bar J Ranch east of Bend. Riding Lolita, Jordan bested a field of five other competitors in the jumpoff round, posting a time of 27.654 seconds. “This horse is like riding a rocket,” said Jordan, who in 2009 won the High Desert Classic II’s $25,000 grand prix. Jordan, who road three different horses in the first

round of the grand prix, advanced to the jumpoff on two separate animals, both of which were from Oregon City’s Venture Farm. Eduardo Braun and his horse HJ El Magnifico set the tone in the jumpoff round as the first team out, posting a time of 28.622 seconds on the abbreviated course. Jordan had her first shot at Braun’s mark on Top Shelf, recording a mark of 29.305 seconds, which ended up being the third-best time of the jumpoff. Three rides later, Jordan and Lolita put together a near-perfect run, besting Braun’s time by almost a second. “It’s tough being the first one out,” Braun said. “You need to set the pace and make people try to catch you.” Jordan finished as the top rider in a field that started with 39 entrants.

TOUR DE F R A N C E AT A GLANCE PAUILLAC, France — A brief look at Saturday’s 19th stage of the Tour de France (more coverage on Page D7): Stage: The 19th was a 32.3-mile time trial from Bordeaux north to Pauillac. Winner: Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland showed why he is the world time-trial champion, completing the race in 1 hour, 56 seconds. His only major competition came from Tony Martin of Germany, who was 17 seconds back. Third was Bert Grabsch of Germany, 1:48 behind Cancellara. Yellow Jersey: The battle between race leader Alberto Contador of Spain and Andy Schleck of Luxembourg was closer than most expected, but Contador eventually won out, extending his lead to 39 seconds and all but guaranteeing his third Tour title. Horner watch: Bend’s Chris Horner finished in 69th place, 7:08 back of the winner. He remained in 10th place in the overall standings, 12:02 back of Contador. Next stage: After taking a train from Bordeaux this morning, the riders take part in the final stage, a 63.7-mile race from Longjumeau ending on the Champs-Elysees in Paris. One jersey remains undetermined: the green jersey of sprint champion. It is currently on the shoulders of Alessandro Petacchi of Italy. — The Associated Press

ost Central Oregon golf fans have not given up much to watch the JeldWen Tradition. Sure, you have forked over $20 for a ticket a few times. And occasionally you have baked under the hot August sun. But that is no stiff price to pay to see some of the legends of golf on the Champions Tour negotiate Sunriver Resort’s Crosswater Club, something Central Oregonians have been able to do each summer since 2007. On the other hand, the members at Crosswater, a private resort course, have sacrificed plenty — namely, two or three weeks each year of playing their home course. And The Tradition comes to town each year in August, among the prime months for golf in these parts. That’s giving up a lot considering the golf season in Sunriver, and in Central Oregon as a whole, is relatively short. I talked recently to a handful of Crosswater members, and most acknowledged the inconvenience. See Crosswater / D8


Bend drops third straight Bulletin staff report WALLA WALLA, Wash. — The Bend Elks’ road struggles continued Saturday as the squad dropped its third consecutive game, falling to the host Walla Walla Sweets 3-1. Ben Guidos pitched all eight innings for Bend, scattering eight hits while allowing just two earned runs. The Elks (25-15 West Coast League), who have lost five of their last six games, committed four errors behind Guidos. Walla Walla starter Joey Wagman went the distance for the Sweets, limiting Bend to four hits. Chris Viegas, who was recently called up from the Elks’ developmental squad, went two for two to lead the Bend offense. The Sweets took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning after clubbing three hits, two of which were doubles. That was all the home team needed, as the Elks’ only run came in the fourth, when Andy Hunter scored off a Kerry Jenkins double.

Fish upsets Roddick to reach final in Atlanta By Charles Odum The Associated Press

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Mardy Fish has a new look and a personal-best winning streak that even top-seeded Andy Roddick couldn’t stop. Fish extended his streak to nine matches with a 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 upset of Roddick, the No. 9 player in the world, in the Atlanta Tennis Championships on Saturday night. Fish, the No. 6 seed, has not lost a set in the tournament. “Confidence is a huge part of our sport,” Fish said. “I’m as confident on the court as I’ve ever been right now.” Fish will face No. 2 seed John Isner in today’s final. Isner beat Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-7 (7-9), 6-3 earlier Saturday. The 6-foot-9 Isner beat the 6-foot-8 Anderson of South Africa in a matchup of two of the three tallest players in the ATP World Tour’s top 100 rankings.

Former Indy 500 winner Montoya wins Brickyard pole By Jenna Fryer The Associated Press

Chris Clark / For The Associated Press

Bernhard Langer watches his 16th hole tee shot while Corey Pavin watches during the Senior British Open at Carnoustie Golf Club, Carnoustie, Scotland, Saturday.

Langer opens 3-shot lead at Senior British The Associated Press CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — Bernhard Langer took a threeshot lead in the Senior British Open after shooting a 2-under 69 in the third round at Carnoustie on Saturday. The German has yet to win on the Champions Tour but is in position to change that after outplaying his nearest rival, Corey Pavin. The pair set out as co-leaders at 4 under, but three bogeys dropped the American Ryder Cup team captain to a 1-over 72. Despite his lead, Langer was wary of Carnoustie’s fearsome reputation. “I am aware that this golf course is one of the toughest links you will ever play,” he said. “And I am aware that a three-shot lead is nothing if very little around here. I am going to have to play very solidly again in the final round if I am going to lift the trophy.” Langer’s lead would have been even greater but he drove into a bunker on the final hole and was forced to lay up short of the infamous Barry Burn with his recovery shot. He then hit a wedge to five feet but missed the putt to save his par and had to settle for the threeshot lead with a 6-under 207. After his round, Langer said he wished he had used a different club off the 18th tee to take the bunker out of play. “I hit a 3-wood,” he said. “But my caddy and I also discussed hitting one less — a hybrid. I should have listened but I am a stubborn German.” Despite falling out of the lead, Pavin was upbeat about his

performance. “I played fairly well, and a lot of putts just missed. Sometimes you have days like that,” Pavin said. “Bernhard played really solidly and I can’t really expect him to come back and then again I can’t be aggressive on Carnoustie and try to kill it, because it will kill you if you try to do that.” A group of six players go into the final round at 2 under, one shot behind Pavin and four off the lead. Five of them are Americans, reflecting three days of domination at the top of the leaderboard. Joining Larry Mize, Jay Haas, Russ Cochran, Jay Don Blake and Fred Funk is Welshman Ian Woosnam. Funk climbed more than 15 places after a bogey-free 4-under 67, the lowest round of the day. Also on Saturday: Choi shares lead in Sweden STOCKHOLM — K.J. Choi of South Korea and Richard Johnson of Sweden share the lead at the Scandinavian Masters after the third round, and British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen blew a chance to join them. Cheered on by a large home crowd, Johnson mixed four birdies with two bogeys in shooting 70 for a total of 10-under 206. Choi had three birdies and two bogeys in the rainy and windy conditions at Bro Hof Slott in a 1under 71 round. Oosthuizen could have made it a three-way tie for the lead, but he bogeyed his final hole to end on a 70 and at 9 under. Mark Brown of New Zealand had the best score of the day with a 67 and shares fourth place with

Argentina’s Rafa Echenique at 209. Pressel takes third-round lead EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France — Morgan Pressel took a twostroke lead after three rounds of the Evian Masters, closing with an eagle for a 5-under 67. The American began the day three strokes behind after a 72 Friday. She will enter today’s final round at 11 under, followed by South Koreans Jiyai Shin and Jeong Jang. Shin, who was briefly ranked No. 1 following Lorena Ochoa’s retirement this year, had five birdies and a bogey in a round of 68. Jang shot a 70. Second-round leader Mika Miyazato had a 74. She fell four strokes behind Pressel after a round marked by five bogeys, including a stretch of three in a row. Brittany Lincicome, one of the longest drivers in women’s golf, had a 65. Her round included six birdies and an eagle on the 16th hole. She was three strokes behind Pressel and tied for fourth with Alexis Thompson (67) at 8 under. Floridian wins girls junior title PINEHURST, N.C. — Doris Chen, 17 of Bradenton, Fla., won four of five holes during one late stretch to beat Katelyn Dambaugh of Goose Creek, S.C., 3 and 2 in the finals of the U.S. Girls Junior Championship on Saturday. 14-year-old wins U.S. junior title ADA, Mich. — Fourteen-yearold Jim Liu of Smithtown, N.Y., beat Justin Thomas of Goshen, Ky., 4 and 2 Saturday to become the youngest U.S. Junior Amateur champion.


Dean Wilson tops Canadian Open by four strokes; Swede shoots 60 By John Nicholson The Associated Press

TORONTO — Dean Wilson is taking full advantage of a sponsor exemption — and his long friendship with Canadian star Mike Weir. Relying on his past champion status to get into tournaments after finishing 152nd last year on the PGA Tour money list, the 40year-old Wilson — Weir’s teammate at BYU — received a sponsor exemption into the Canadian Open. “I really appreciate that,” Wilson said Saturday after shooting his third straight 5-under 65 to take a four-stroke lead over record-setting Carl Pettersson, Tim Clark and Bob Estes at rainy St. George’s. “Last year didn’t turn out so good, and I’m a little more appreciative of getting in tournaments and playing and being out here and fighting and being in the battle. That time away, makes you think about what you don’t have.” Before Wilson and Clark teed off, Pettersson shot a 10-under 60 in calm and dry morning conditions to break the tournament record, missing a 59 when his 30-foot birdie putt from the fringe grazed the left edge on the

par-4 18th. “I hit a pretty good 6-iron in there, but the wind sort of got it,” Pettersson said. “And you can’t go past the hole because then you got no chance. And it was actually a difficult putt to get to the hole because it was very steep uphill. “I hit a good putt. I told myself, ‘You cannot leave this short. You got to give this a chance.’ And I hit a solid putt and it was just hovering right on the left side. ... With 6 inches less pace it probably would have gone in.” Estes had a 66, and Clark shot a 69 to match Pettersson at 11 under. Bryce Molder (63), Kevin Sutherland (65), Trevor Immelman (65) and Brock Mackenzie (68) were 10 under, and Jeff Quinney (64) and Cliff Kresge (66) were another stroke back. Wilson, a six-time winner in Japan who won the 2006 International for his lone PGA Tour title, made his move midway through the round in the rain, birdieing Nos. 9-11. He holed a 5-footer on the par-5 ninth, an 8-footer on the par-4 10th and another 5-foot putt on the par-5 11th to open a three-stroke lead. “Another day in Hawaii,” said Wilson, from Kaneohe. “You just can’t fight (the rain). You know

that it’s going to be there. You can’t complain about it, and you just got to be a little tougher than the rain.” Pettersson broke the tournament record of 62 set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 at Glen Abbey and matched by five others, including Brent Delahoussaye on Thursday and Sutherland on Friday. Pettersson tied the tournament record for relation to par of 10 under set by Greg Norman in 1986 when Glen Abbey played to a par of 72.

INDIANAPOLIS — Juan Pablo Montoya is in a familiar spot at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — out front. A year after a late speeding penalty denied him a victory at the Brickyard, he’s hoping it sticks this time. Montoya has steadfastly denied any lingering bitterness from last year’s near-miss, or any notion that the Brickyard owes him one. Instead, the polesitter for today’s race is treating this visit as an entirely new opportunity. “It’s given me a lot, so I don’t complain,” said Montoya, who won the Indianapolis 500 for team owner Chip Ganassi in 2000. So far this weekend, he’s had little to gripe about. His No. 42 Chevrolet was the fastest of 13 cars at an April tire test here, and Montoya paced both of Friday’s practice sessions. Then he turned a lap at 182.278 mph on Saturday morning to take the top starting spot at the Brickyard. Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, who won his third Brickyard last season in part because of Montoya’s gaffe, qualified second with a lap at 182.142. Hen-

drick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin qualified third and was followed by Jamie McMurray, Montoya’s teammate, Ryan Newman and Clint Bowyer, as Chevrolets took the top six qualifying spots. Greg Biffle was the highest qualifying Ford at sixth, Brad Keselowski was the best Dodge at 11th and Martin Truex Jr. led the Toyota effort at 12th. Former Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve, like Montoya also an Indianapolis 500 winner, qualified for his first Sprint Cup race since 2007 and will start last in the 43-car field. Four drivers failed to make the race: David Gilliland, Casey Mears — nephew of four-time Indy 500 winner Rick Mears — David Stremme and J.J. Yeley. Attention will likely be on Montoya, who has already had a busy week. His wife, Connie, on Monday gave birth to the couple’s third child, a daughter named Manuela, and Thursday was a trip to the emergency room for middle child Paulina. “Her brother practiced his golf swing on her head,” Montoya said with raised eyebrows. So getting on track provided some relief from the madness, even though this weekend comes with raised

expectations. He led 116 laps last year in a bid to become the only driver to win both the IndyCar and NASCAR races at the Brickyard, only to be flagged for speeding on the final pit stop to drop to an 11th-place finish. Everyone expected a strong effort in his return, based solely on the assumption the No. 42 team wants to grab the victory it was denied last year. But Johnson bristled Saturday at the suggestion that Montoya had the field covered last year. “I think we were the best car last year,” the winner argued. “I think Juan and the team did a great job getting up front and were in clean air. Yes, Juan was fast in clean air, but when he got mired in traffic, he couldn’t go anywhere. Not taking a shot at Juan, but I’m really proud of what we did last year.” Montoya, of course, disagreed. “If you think about it, I remember (Martin) nearly passed him with two laps to go,” Montoya said. “So (Johnson) definitely didn’t have the superior car. I think I had the superior car; I think (Martin) was the second fastest car. (Johnson) probably had the third or fourth fastest car.

• USC’s Kiffin irks Titans’ Fisher: Southern California coach Lane Kiffin has hired Tennessee Titans running back coach Kennedy Pola as his offensive coordinator. Before the move became official, Titans coach Jeff Fisher voiced his displeasure with Kiffin on Saturday to the Tennessean newspaper, saying the new USC coach hadn’t made the customary courtesy phone call to tell the NFL team he was interested in hiring Pola. Tennessee Titans training camp opens in a week. Pola is a former USC player and assistant coach and so is Fisher. Kiffin issued a statement Saturday saying he first spoke to Pola on Friday, and then called Fisher after Pola called him back. • Kaye Cowher, wife of former coach, dies at age 54: Kaye Cowher, the wife of ex-Steelers coach Bill Cowher and a former basketball player at North Carolina State and in the now-defunct Women’s Professional Basketball League, has died of skin cancer. She was 54. Cowher died Friday in her native North Carolina, where the family relocated at her urging during Cowher’s final year as coach in 2006, one season after the Steelers won the Super Bowl.

• Elks split squad wins: The Bend Elks split squad came away with a 5-4 victory in an error-filled game against the Portland Pirates in a home contest Saturday. The two teams combined on 17 hits and 14 errors. Sisters High product Tanner Hodges scored the winning run in the ninth inning when the Pirates misplayed a ball hit by his Sisters teammate, Max Stovall. Skip Spencer got the win, going five innings, holding the Pirates scoreless and striking out three. Madras High product Turner Gill was three for five with a double. The split squad returns to action today with a doubleheader at home.

Softball • U.S. cruises at World Cup: Jessica Mendoza doubled twice and drove in four runs, Monica Abbott threw a one-hitter and the U.S. beat rival Japan 8-0 Saturday night at the World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City. The Americans (4-0) have yet to allow a run or an extra-base hit in four victories at the World Cup, yielding only nine singles in 26 innings. That followed a dominant performance by Eileen Canney, who threw a two-hitter in the national team’s 1-0 victory against the USA Futures team earlier in the day.

his third consecutive win in IndyCar, will start from the pole Sunday in the Honda Edmonton Indy in Canada. Power drove the 1.96mile City Centre Airport track in 1:00.7126 to lead the 25-car field. Helio Castroneves, Power’s teammate with Team Penske, will start beside him on the front row while Scott Dixon of Target Chip Ganassi will be third. • Busch rolls to Nationwide win: Kyle Busch held off Carl Edwards in a two-lap sprint to the finish to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indiana on Saturday night. Busch used a perfectly timed restart to keep a hard-charging Edwards at bay and pick up his eighth win of the season and his fifth in his last six starts. Edwards, who was docked 60 points and fined $25,000 for taking out series points leader Brad Keselowski at the end of last week’s race in St. Louis, kept things clean this time. He used a late gamble to take on tires to roar through the field but didn’t have quite enough to track down Busch. Aric Almirola finished third, followed by pole-sitter Trevor Bayne and Reed Sorenson. — From wire reports

Auto racing • Vettel takes pole for German GP: Sebastian Vettel of Germany squeezed out Fernando Alonso on Saturday to take pole position in his home Formula One Grand Prix. Vettel’s Red Bull was .002 seconds faster than Alonso’s Ferrari in qualifying to give the German his sixth pole of the season — and his third straight. Felipe Massa of Brazil in the second Ferrari was third and Mark Webber of Australia was fourth in another Red Bull to complete the two front rows for today’s German Grand Prix. • Power fastest in IndyCar qualifying: Will Power, going for

AL ROUNDUP Mariners 5, Red Sox 1 SEATTLE — Michael Saunders broke up the no-hit bid of Boston’s Jon Lester with a two-run homer in the sixth inning, Seattle added three more runs off Lester in the eighth inning, and the Mariners rallied for a win over the Red Sox. One batter after Lester’s chance at a perfect game ended when center fielder Eric Patterson dropped Jack Wilson’s one-out liner in the sixth, Saunders ripped a 2-2 curve for his eighth homer of the season. It was the second homer by a lefty this season off Lester, who for the first five innings was untouchable.

Reversal by NFL on helmet testing arouses concerns


M’s dugout fight sets new season low point

By Alan Schwarz New York Times News Service

By Gregg Bell The Associated Press

SEATTLE — Add fighting among themselves to the Mount Rainier-high list of problems the Seattle Mariners have right now. Friday night’s 2-1 loss to Boston brought a new, most unseemly low: a mid-game fight in the dugout between benched second baseman Chone Figgins and manager Don Wakamatsu. The brief but intense scrum included: a shouting match across the length of the bench; pushing between players and coaches who were trying to intervene; one Mariner climbing over others and lunging toward Figgins; the starting pitcher in the middle trying to make peace; and third baseman Jose Lopez having his jersey pulled off his back. An irate Figgins spent the last few innings stewing inside the clubhouse. Veteran clubhouse leader Russell Branyan went back there to talk to Figgins. Branyan was glad to see Figgins hadn’t left the stadium during the game, as Milton Bradley had done after Wakamatsu benched him during a game in May. The second-year manager said Figgins will not be suspended for the insubordination. Figgins left the ballpark before reporters were allowed into the clubhouse. General manager Jack Zduriencik was in nearby Tacoma watching his Triple-A team Friday night and was going to take up the issue on Saturday. The last-place Mariners sunk to a season-low 23 games under .500 with their 16th loss in 20 games. What should their fans be thinking about a last-place team that is now fighting among themselves in the dugout? “With the way we’ve been playing, it’d be hard to convince any fan to come out and watch us play. Because it hasn’t been pretty,” Branyan said. “But on the other hand, we’re working hard. Guys are trying too hard.” Figgins, who’s been struggling mightily all season in the first year of a $36 million, free-agent contract, was standing near second base as Boston’s Mike Cameron was pulling into second on a double into the left-field corner leading off the fifth. Figgins inexplicably let the throw from Michael Saunders, which sailed over cutoff man Jack Wilson, bounce a few feet to his left and then dribble past the bag without moving toward it. Cameron alertly went to third on another boneheaded play by the Mariners in a week full of them. After the top of the fifth, Wakamatsu benched Figgins — something many fans thought he should have done with the .229 hitter months ago. “I didn’t think there was much effort in that backup, and I made the decision to take him out of the ballgame,” Wakamatsu said. Asked why he benched Figgins then and not numerous other Mariners for their many mental mistakes and lack of effort in recent weeks, Wakamatsu said Figgins’ laziness “was cut-and-dry.” An argument then broke out in the Mariners’ dugout between Figgins at the far end and Wakamatsu, who was closer to the plate-side of the bench. A ball girl passing in front of the dugout stopped and watched the scene with her mouth agape. While Figgins was shouting and Branyan was interceding, Lopez was between the two. Lopez was pushed back away from a teammate toward the far end of the dugout by several Mariners, primarily hitting coach Alonzo Powell. Starting pitcher Jason Vargas, who had been quietly celebrating stranding Cameron at third, suddenly found himself among those trying to separate combatants. “What people have to understand is, everybody in that dugout cares. And tempers fly a little bit,” Wakamatsu said, without detailing what happened. “What happens in there stays in there.”

Minnesota Viking quarterback Brett Favre watches as an Oak Grove High School football player hauls in a pass during a voluntary summer practice in Hattiesburg, Miss., earlier this month. It’s still uncertain whether Favre intends to play in the NFL this season.

The drama queen in Favre surfaces again In what’s becoming an annual affair, no one is sure whether the quarterback will return to play for Minnesota this season By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press


here was major flooding this week in Wisconsin, a state where Brett Favre used to ply his trade. It was getting pretty deep once again in Mississippi, too, in what has now become an annual rite of summer. The drama queen of the South was giving interviews and accepting selected visitors, including one who for some reason still wants to coach him this season. Brad Childress didn’t get a commitment, of course. That would take half the fun out of the thing. There’s surgeries to recover from, and fans to tease. A guy needs his space to throw a teammate under the bus, too, so the people of Minnesota don’t blame him for what happened that January night in New Orleans. Besides, the Vikings don’t break training camp until midAugust and those other quarterbacks need to get some playing time in during the exhibition season. Should be plenty of time left for Childress to wax the Escalade and head to the airport to pick up his quarterback before play begins for real. And don’t worry, Vikings fans, Favre will be there for the opening snap. He’ll be there just as surely as LeBron James was always going to flee Cleveland for South Beach. He’ll be there because he loves to play football, and because he’s guaranteed millions to do what he loves. He’ll be there because he loves to be loved. And he’ll be there because he needs to be needed. That’s why Favre can’t seem

to do what normal veteran quarterbacks do, which is to arrive at training camp, get in his reps, and go about his business. It’s why he retires and unretires and then calls a press conference to report the astonishing news he hasn’t made up his mind about anything. It’s why he invites a Men’s Journal writer down to spend a day with him in Mississippi, then complains that the writer somehow defamed his family by quoting his own agent as calling him a drama queen. Drama queen, indeed. Asked on Friday to describe his first season with Favre, Childress started singing an old show tune to Dave Campbell of The Associated Press. “Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you,” Childress sang. By now, Childress should know plenty about the quarterback who just won’t quit. He’s been down to Mississippi twice this year to sit out on the front porch with Favre, presumably to discuss which part of his body is bothering him now. What they surely didn’t discuss was the NFC championship game against the Saints, where the Vikings were a few yards away from a win in regulation until mistakes by both coach and quarterback cost them a trip to the Super Bowl. Childress has to take the blame for two conservative runs with the ball on the Saints’ 33, followed by a penalty for having 12 men in the huddle. Favre should own up for the interception on the next play, though that’s not exactly his style. Turns out it was Sidney Rice’s

fault for not coming back to the ball like Favre thought he would. “As a player you’ve got to pull the trigger,” Favre told Men’s Journal. “You can’t say, ‘Well, is he going to do what I think he’s going to do?’ He wasn’t wrong, and in some ways, I wasn’t either.” OK. Now that we’ve got that cleared up, the Favre countdown watch can officially begin. There will be breathless reports out of Hattiesburg, where the 40-year-old Favre is shedding a few pounds and limbering up the ol’ arm in practices with a local high school team. Expect Favre to talk one day about whether he still has it anymore, then the next about how he really wants to lead the Vikings to the promised land. As the days turn into weeks and his teammates swat mosquitoes at the team’s training camp in Mankato, Favre will let everyone twist in the wind. Then he’ll begin making some noises about how a 20th season might just be possible, after all. At some point all eyes will turn to the skies to see if the private jet sent by Vikings owner Zygi Wilf is on the way. It will be, of course, and Favre will get the obligatory hero’s welcome he so desperately seems to want. Then he’ll put on the pads and, barring injury, play better than any quarterback his age has a right to play. So far, the campaign is unfolding just as planned. About all that’s missing is a LeBron-like television special for Favre to announce his decision. But while James held a city hostage to stoke his massive ego, Favre has him beat. He has a whole state to toy with to satisfy his narcissistic desires. Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at

Off-field troubles greet SEC kickoff week By Ray Glier New York Times News Service

HOOVER, Ala. — For 60 minutes here this week the turmoil around the Southeastern Conference was interrupted by the homespun, uncomplicated media presentation of Robbie Caldwell, Vanderbilt’s interim head coach. While talking about the coming season, he delighted the crowd with tales of working on a turkey farm and his varied skills, such as pouring concrete. Once Caldwell left the podium, it was back to the business of agents lurking behind doors, NCAA inquiries at SEC universities, player denials of receiving cash and gifts, and charges that players committed assaults. The SEC, which has won the past four national titles in college football, saw its kickoff week partly spoiled. Tennessee, which was recovering from Lane Kiffin’s unsettling one-year coaching stint and a string of NCAA secondary violations while he was head coach, is dealing with the fallout from an assault on July 9 in which several players reportedly attacked an off-duty police officer outside

a Knoxville bar. The NCAA is conducting an inquiry at Georgia, and there is an allegation that the former Florida offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey accepted $100,000 from an agent in December before his final game with the Gators. There are also investigations under way at South Carolina and Alabama involving players allegedly accepting gifts from agents, which is against NCAA rules. “It doesn’t look good, no, that’s for sure, but I still have 95 kids in the locker room I trust,” said Houston Nutt, the Mississippi coach. “It’s four or five you really got to keep your eye on. “Listen, some of this trouble with players went on 30 years ago, but the police just called the coach and said come pick ’em up and take ’em home and we didn’t hear about it. Now, they don’t call the coach. They lock ’em up and everybody knows about it.” SEC Commissioner Mike Slive reacted to the problems facing the SEC by saying: “How you handle difficult problems is how you measure people. I am pleased with how our folks handle these issues.”

Louisiana State coach Les Miles said players whose families are living near the poverty level are prey for agents who offer cash and gifts. Miles said college football needs another model: a stipend for players to discourage contact with agents. “That’s not paying players, it’s the scholarship, suddenly the scholarship involves a $200 stipend, the level of scholarship is taller,” Miles said. “The kids are not going to be as susceptible. “Should there be an adjusted level for our players? Yeah, there should be. Here’s what happens. I’m poor. Money’s money. Your whole life you have been dealing from the underling and suddenly there is an opportunity.” Urban Meyer, Florida’s head coach, said agents offering money to players to entice them to sign is an epidemic, and at least one prominent agent agrees. “The runners, the representatives of agent-wannabes, is a real problem for college football,” said the agent, who asked not to be named because he did not want to be quoted discussing legal matters. “These guys are everywhere.”

Two months after concurring with a congressman that the data was “infected” and declaring that the testing program would be abandoned, the NFL’s committee on head injuries joined the league and its players union on Friday in publicly releasing the results of helmet testing that outside experts described as potentially compromising the safety of youth athletes. The testing program had been spearheaded throughout 2009 by the former leaders of the NFL research group, all of whom resigned in the past nine months after strong criticism of their conduct from the House Judiciary Committee and outside medical experts. The co-chairmen of a newly constituted committee, Dr. H. Hunt Batjer and Dr. Richard G. Ellenbogen, said after facing Congressional barbs in May that they would discard all work of their predecessors. That included the suspended helmet testing, Batjer said, because of its “poor methodologies” and “inherent conflict of interest” that were “not acceptable by any modern standards.” On Friday, the league and the union released memoranda to club officials, players and the news media that explained how three of 16 helmet models — two by Riddell, an official league licensee, and one by Schutt — had performed best in testing. The tests were conducted by two research labs that have no affiliation with the league and its committee; the data was subsequently analyzed by independent researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Duke University. The six pages of carefully worded results occasionally cautioned that the tests focused only on open-field tackles resulting in concussions during NFL games, adding near the end that the results “cannot be extrapolated to collegiate, high school or youth football.” But the public designation of three helmets as “top performing”


in tests believed to simulate only the highest 1 percent of forces to cause concussions, at a time when football head injuries are national news, led critics to fear that the safety of the nation’s four million youth football players would be compromised. “I believe that the document is accurate and that every word in it is true, but they imply something to the lay reader — namely that these top-performing helmets are safer against concussion,” said Dr. Robert Cantu, a senior adviser to the NFL committee and director of the Neurological Sports Injury Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “It is recognized that helmets designed to work at high-impact forces, while efficient at protecting against skull fracture, are not necessarily effective at protecting against concussion,” Cantu added. “The danger in making this public is that even though it’s not stated, some people can infer and imply from this statement that the so-called top-performing helmets are safer. “I fear that it will be used to market helmets to youth players. In reality, they may be more unsafe for the lower forces known to cause concussions, primarily in youth football.” The release of the information prompted Rep. Anthony D. Weiner to write a critical letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Weiner is a Democrat from New York City whose grilling of Ellenbogen and Batjer had led them to say they would discard the data and “start from scratch.” “Yesterday’s announcement of the results of the NFL helmet testing study is a disturbing step backwards,” Weiner wrote Goodell. “Congress was assured by members of the NFL’s recently created head, neck and spine committee that the old and widely questioned testing methodology would not be relied upon for future recommendations. Yet it appears that that is exactly what happened.”

In battle over history, it’s Jack Thorpe against Jim Thorpe, Pa. Son wants his famous Native American father to be buried with the rest of his family in Oklahoma

Rhetoric is heating up as boxer prepares for MMA debut against UFC legend By Lance Pugmire Los Angeles Times

By John Branch New York Times News Service

POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY, Okla. — The northeast corner of Garden Grove Cemetery is a crowded one. But Jack Thorpe, the 73year-old son of Jim Thorpe, sees room for at least one more. “More than likely, Dad will end up right here,” Thorpe said. He pointed to a plot-size patch between a short chain-link fence and an unmarked rectangle of crumbling red brick. A step away was an undated stone the size of a shoebox lid reading, simply, “SON.” Jack Thorpe, the man suing Jim Thorpe, Pa., for his father’s remains, stepped out of the repressive midday sun and into the shade of a scraggly oak. He took a drag from his cigarette. Beads of sweat slid down his cheeks. Birds chattered somewhere in the bushes. Jim Thorpe’s father and a sister and a brother and more than a dozen other relatives are buried here, beneath the baking, sandy soil and the thin grass. There is no town nearby, just a crossroads without street signs. A mile down a dirt road that was nothing more than a wagon trail when Jim Thorpe was a boy, a granite marker stands as tall and sturdy as the man it honors. “Birth site of Jim Thorpe,” it reads. Jack Thorpe pointed downhill toward a stand of trees. That is where the one-room log house stood. That is where a blacksmith, a Sac and Fox Indian named Hiram Thorpe, forged a family, including a boy who became the world’s greatest athlete — the 1912 Olympic decathlon and pentathlon gold medalist, a Hall of Fame football player, a major league baseball player. Thorpe, whose veins also held Potawatomi blood from his mother’s side, remains a hero to Americans, native and otherwise — a man whose life story is part of the curriculum at schools in Oklahoma and whose name adorns buildings, highways and hospitals in what used to be Indian Territory. “I want to see him put away properly,” Jack Thorpe said. “I want to put him where he wanted to be.” Until then, Jim Thorpe remains far from home. He very likely never visited the towns of Mauch Chunk and East Mauch Chunk, straddling the Lehigh River in the Pocono Mountains of eastern Pennsylvania. But months after Thorpe died in 1953 at age 64, his third wife, Patricia, struck a deal. Build a monument and care for the remains, and a nifty roadside attraction and Jim Thorpe’s name for the merged towns are yours. And so it has been, for more than 50 years. And now, Thorpe versus Thorpe. “I don’t have anything against Jim Thorpe, Pa.,” Jack Thorpe said. “But some things are not for sale.” Jack Thorpe waited long enough. He waited for Jim Thorpe the town to volunteer Jim Thorpe’s remains. He waited for Patricia to die, which she did in 1974. He waited for his three half-sisters to die, too, because they had differing views on their father’s final resting place and Thorpe “didn’t want to iron this out in public.” Grace, the most adamant about letting their father be, was the last to die, in 2008 at 86. In June, with the backing of his two surviving brothers, Jack Thorpe sued the town of Jim Thorpe in U.S. District Court. Citing the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990, the suit contends that Jack Thorpe, as a lineal descendant, has legal claim to his father’s remains.


Michael Downes / The New York Times

Jack Thorpe, son of Native American athlete Jim Thorpe, stands at a small cemetery near Shawnee, Okla., in June. Thorpe has sued the town Jim Thorpe, Pa., because he wants the remains of his father, Jim, to be buried with family members in Oklahoma. No trial date has been set. And the town of Jim Thorpe, which slowly rebuilt itself as a tourist center with perhaps a little nudge from the dignified memorial and mausoleum for its namesake, is debating how to proceed. “I can see the point of both sides,” said Kate Buford, the author of “Native American Son: The Life and Sporting Legend of Jim Thorpe,” to be published in October. “It’s a really difficult issue.” She said that the town had honored Thorpe’s memory “very well and very sincerely.” Jack Thorpe said that could continue. “We’re not trying to get them to change the name of the town,” said Travis Willingham, the lawyer handling the case for Jack Thorpe. “We just want the body back. I would hope we could work this out.” Thorpe has said that under Sac and Fox beliefs, his father’s soul is doomed to wander until properly put to rest. Last weekend, he backed away from that assertion. This has less to do with Native American burial traditions than bringing his father “full circle” and “doing the right thing,” he said. “If it doesn’t work out, if the federal court doesn’t say that they must return them, it’s all well and good,” Thorpe said. “At least I tried. And I’d give the town 100-percent support.” Thorpe is a former chief of the 3,600-member Sac and Fox nation. He has the wide face and thick hair of his father and a paunch above his belt. He wears gold-framed glasses and a silver-and-turquoise watch. He has a hearty laugh that turns his face red and his eyes shiny when he tells stories, some of them off-color, about his father, whom he refers to as Dad. Thorpe is now the director of the tribe’s housing authority, and his office in Shawnee is filled with mementos of his father’s career. A frame holds medals from boyhood track meets in Carlisle, Pa., where Jim Thorpe attended an Indian school and first made his name as an athlete. Mixed with the Carlisle medals is a souvenir spoon from Jim Thorpe, Pa. The towns are about 100 miles apart. Jack Thorpe was the youngest of Jim’s four sons with his second wife, Freeda Kirkpatrick. (With his first wife, Iva, Jim Thorpe had another son, who died young, and three daughters. He had no children with Patricia.) Jack’s parents divorced when he was four, and he spent much of his childhood the way his father had, at Indian boarding schools outside Oklahoma. He was 15 and in Oregon on March 28, 1953, when he heard about his father’s death

on the radio. Jim Thorpe had been eating dinner with Patricia at their home in California when he had a heart attack. His body was brought to Oklahoma. Last Sunday, Jack Thorpe stood inside a Kickapoo ceremonial house, much like the one that the closely related Sac and Fox used for Thorpe’s burial ceremony 57 years ago. A rectangle more than 20 feet long, the structure has a floor of hard dirt and a ceiling of woven dried cattails. The lone door opens to the east. Benches line the other three walls. The house, said Ruth Sanderson, a fullblooded Kickapoo, is one of the few remaining, used for ceremonies like baby naming and funerals. Jack Thorpe said his father’s coffin was on the bench on the north side of a ceremonial house, his head pointed west, after the ceremony’s evening meal. In a tradition dating thousands of years, people sang and prayed through the night. At dawn, the body was pulled through the wood-slatted wall in the northwest corner — “To let the individual cross to the other side,” Sanderson said — and buried before noon. The plan was to bury Thorpe temporarily in a mausoleum at nearby Fairview Cemetery until details for a monument could be sorted out. Patricia Thorpe, who was not Native American, arrived in the dark of that spring night with a hearse and a police escort. Thorpe’s body was hauled away. Months later, after the Oklahoma governor vetoed an appropriation for a Thorpe memorial, a deal was struck with a couple of struggling towns in Pennsylvania. And Jack Thorpe began waiting for his father to come home. If and when Jim Thorpe makes it, the overnight Sac and Fox burial ceremony will be completed. By noon the next day, Jack Thorpe hopes, the body will be taken to a little cemetery near a four-way stop, and buried under the sun-baked soil next to a chain-link fence. Jack Thorpe plans a simple memorial: James Francis Thorpe, World’s Greatest Athlete. Neither the pastor of the Garden Grove Missionary Baptist Church across the road nor the cemetery’s trustees seem worried about attracting too many people to this outof-the-way spot. “His family is buried up here,” said Bob Denney, a cemetery trustee whose grandmother attended school with Jim Thorpe. “He’s more than welcome.”

LOS ANGELES — The Ultimate Fighting Championship started with arguments among fans about which combat discipline was superior. A decade later, the debate has intensified. Former three-division boxing world champion James Toney, who was miffed when UFC President Dana White said boxers can’t stand up to mixed martial artists, has signed for his first mixed martial arts bout against former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture on Aug. 28 in Boston. “I called Dana White out and he had to save face,” Toney said. The acrimony between the street-hardened Toney, 41, and White reached a peak this month when White confessed he “got caught up in the MMA-vs.boxing thing,” and considered Toney’s participation a “freak show.” “Toney will get his (rear) kicked on August 28 and I’m counting the days,” White said. “Why wouldn’t I take this (bout)?” asked Couture, 47, who held the UFC heavyweight championship until November 2008. “I heard (Toney) was talking smack about MMA fighters, and that I was on his list of guys he’d knock out. Let’s do it. It’s an MMA fight, and has a lot of crossover appeal — I know the boxing world will be paying attention.” Toney has spent eight weeks at a Chatsworth gym in two-a-day training sessions, trying to shed his reputation as an uninspired fighter during the latter stages of his boxing career. “He’s a natural predator,” said Trevor Sherman, the MMA coach who’s taught Toney key grappling fundamentals so Toney can land devastating punches if he gets Couture to the mat. “No one has ever stepped into the octagon with this type of striking prowess.” Toney said he grew frustrated last year in his attempts to land a heavyweight boxing match against the world champion Klitschko brothers, Wladimir and Vitali, as well as with another champ, David Haye. Toney was looking on the Internet one day when he noticed White discussing the advantage MMA fighters would have over boxers in an MMA fight. Toney recalled some war stories his manager, John Arthur, told him about participating in no-rules “Sudden Death” fighting in Thailand in the 1960s. “I’ve told James about sharpening my teeth for those fights, about using the four weapons of your hands and feet, and the joint manipulations I knew,” Arthur said. “He said, ‘Pop, I want to do what you did.’ Couture’s in a fight for his life. He’s never been in there with anyone as vicious. And I’ve never seen James get as up for a fight.” Toney is looking forward to discovering how much damage

he can do to Couture if he lands a punch in a four-ounce MMA glove — boxers typically use 10ounce gloves. Toney smiled and said, “When they told me I’ll be using those four-ouncers, I said, ‘Oh, Lord, we’re going to jail.’ “I’m going to be representing boxing, and I’m a boxing master. The meanness, the nastiness. I don’t turn my back on anyone like (current UFC heavyweight champion) Brock Lesnar did in his last fight. “I love danger. I know this fight represents some danger to me. I’m hitting it head-on.” Toney (72-6-3, 44 knockouts) signed a three-fight deal with UFC, with an opt-out clause if he loses. But he expects to fulfill his UFC commitment, hopeful for a victory over Couture and a title shot at Lesnar, and he still wants to box too. “He’s one of the nicest guys in boxing, and I’m glad he has this opportunity to make a few bucks,” boxing promoter Bob Arum said. Yet, Arum said he didn’t view this fight as the ultimate answer to the question of what fighting discipline trumps all. “If James hits (Couture) first, he’s going down. But if it goes to the floor, (Toney is) probably going to lose,” Arum said. “If this was a boxing match, I’d be watching it, but this is this cockamamie martial arts, guys rolling around on the floor. It’s not even a sport.” Toney could be susceptible to the chokeholds or submission positions that former Olympic wrestler Couture can produce. “I’ll stand with him as long as I can to get him where I want: with him on his back and me on top of him,” Couture said. Trainer Sherman says Toney’s grappling skills will be sufficient, with the primary focus being on unleashing a powerful punch. “Randy’s MMA arsenal is mind-numbing, but James has a (strong) right and left hand,” Sherman said. “If James lands within three inches, he can cause problems. Six inches, he can break things.” Toney is also out to prove George Foreman’s motto that “age is just a number.” He is six years younger than Couture and Toney believes his mobility after a dedicated training camp will produce an impressive performance. “I punch and I knock people out, and I’m going in there knowing what everyone in boxing knows: that everybody has a plan until they get hit. I’m a fan of MMA. But these guys hold, kick, scratch when they’re in trouble,” Toney said. “They can’t mess with boxing.”

Competitive cheer teams see acceptance as inevitable By Katie Thomas New York Times News Service

When Felecia Mulkey was hired as the coach of the new competitive cheer team at the University of Oregon in 2008, one of the first things the university did was not call it that. The name conjured outdated images of pompoms and miniskirts. Calling it the team stunts and gymnastics program better described her squad of talented athletes. The message was clear: Mulkey’s team would be cheering for itself alone. And the activity deserved to be considered a sport. “If we can get the world to understand,” she said, “we’re not taking the place of cheerleading, but we are opening up opportunities for women.” But Wednesday a federal judge in Connecticut delivered a blow to universities, like Oregon, that classify competitive cheer as a varsity sport, ruling that Quinnipiac University’s team could not be counted toward compliance with Title IX, the federal law requiring gender equity in education. “Competitive cheer may, some time in the future, qualify as a sport under Title IX,” Judge Stefan R. Underhill of the U.S.

District Court in Bridgeport wrote in his decision. “Today, however, the activity is still too underdeveloped and disorganized to be treated as offering genuine varsity athletic participation opportunities for students.” While the decision applies only to Quinnipiac, women’s sports advocates said the ruling could lead other universities to reconsider their decision to offer the sport, which has been criticized by those who say institutions view it as an easy fix when they need to pump up women’s participation numbers. Meanwhile, supporters of competitive cheer acknowledged that their sport was in its infancy, but they said the ruling was only a setback in what they see as an inevitable march toward acceptance. Underhill’s decision was a victory for the five women’s volleyball players who, along with their coach, sued Quinnipiac in 2009 after the university announced it was cutting their team and adding competitive cheerleading. In Quinnipiac’s case, the judge noted that the university created the new team by hiring the woman who formerly

coached the traditional sideline cheerleading squad. She elevated 16 cheerleaders from the sideline team and recruited the rest from the student body. Quinnipiac released a statement Thursday expressing disappointment with the decision and said it intended to add women’s rugby as a varsity sport in the 2011-12 school year. Beyond Quinnipiac, Underhill noted that competitive cheer is not recognized by either the National Collegiate Athletic Association or the federal Department of Education, and intercollegiate teams lacked a playoff system. Although the six universities that recognize it have set up an organization to oversee the sport at the college level, Underhill said the group, the National Competitive Stunt and Tumbling Association, was a “loosely defined, unincorporated association” without a board of directors, a voting system for members or “other hallmarks of a governing national athletics organization.” “The judge’s decision was pretty straightforward,” said Lisa Maatz, director of public policy and government relations

at AAUW, a women’s advocacy group. “I think what it means for these schools is it should put them on notice that they cannot use competitive cheer as a way to undercut women’s athletic opportunities at their school.” Neena Chaudhry, senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center, agreed. “I think it would be hard for schools to show that cheerleading should count under Title IX at this point,” she said. Oregon and the University of Maryland each sought Thursday to differentiate their programs. Oregon noted that it conducted a nationwide search before it hired Mulkey. Maryland said it was studying the ruling, but a spokesman said the university discussed its plans with the Office for Civil Rights, the arm of the education department that enforces Title IX, before adding the sport in 2003. Mulkey said she was encouraged that the judge left the door open for the sport to be recognized in the future. Nearly 64,000 girls participated in “competitive spirit squads” in the 2009-10 academic year, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations.

Contador locks up Tour title Two-time champ is set to win after time trial By Jamey Keaten The Associated Press

By Naomi Koppel

PAUILLAC, France — Wiping away tears, Alberto Contador is ready for the champagne to flow. After three daunting weeks of crashes, biting cold, fog and searing heat, he is set to become the Tour de France champion again. The Spaniard all but captured his third title in four years Saturday by holding off a full-bore challenge from his main rival, Andy Schleck of Luxembourg, in a 32mile individual time trial in the next-to-last stage. Today’s ride into Paris is a mostly ceremonial affair. “I am very moved ... It was a difficult Tour and I’m very happy,” a tearful Contador said. He took a deep breath and his hand trembled as he fired an index finger — the trademark gesture by the rider nicknamed “El Pistolero” — to fans after donning the yellow jersey one more time. Contador wasn’t in top form, but did what he had to. The defending champion extended his lead over Schleck from eight seconds to 39 in a stage won by Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland. Now Contador surely gets to wear yellow on the Champs-Elysees. And as the unquestioned leader of his sport at 27 years old, he remains on track for a possible challenge to Lance Armstrong’s record of seven Tour wins. Contador will have won the Tour without winning a stage. He’ll become the first champion to have done that since Greg LeMond of the U.S. won the last of his three titles in 1990 — not counting 2006 — when Oscar Pereiro of Spain inherited his title only after American Floyd Landis lost it for doping. Contador acknowledged this wasn’t his best Tour. “Cycling is not like mathematics. There are moments when you are very well-prepared and everything runs smoothly. But this year, maybe I was not in the best shape really,” he said. “Today I was not feeling so well: I didn’t sleep well, I had a stomachache,” Contador said through a translator, before adding: “Eventually, things went pretty well.”

PAUILLAC, France — The images of Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck climbing the famed Col du Tourmalet wheelto-wheel and fighting to wrest seconds from each other in the time trial have cycling fans anticipating a long rivalry. They are hoping for years of dueling in the Tour de France between the Spaniard and the Luxembourger. “They have great duels. They are the Anquetil-Poulidor, Merckx-Ocana, Hinault-LeMond, or Nadal-Federer in tennis if you like,” said Tour director Christian Prudhomme. “They are almost at the same level and that promises new, extraordinary duels. We hope to all find ourselves together next year on the Tour for new stages. They have really accomplished an extraordinary Tour from beginning to end.” Contador said he was expecting many more battles. “Andy is a great rider. I’ve spent a lot of time with him. I know him very well. I know ... how he works. I think he is going to be a major rival,” Contador said. Their struggle from the time the Tour moved into the Alps on July 11 added to the great rivalries of the Tour de France. In 1985, Bernard Hinault of France found himself battling with his own teammate, American Greg LeMond, for the top place on the podium. Hinault won that year, with LeMond second. A year later, still in the same team, it was LeMond who won, with Hinault in second place. LeMond was also involved in the closest-ever Tour finish, in 1989, when a contest he began with Frenchman Laurent Fignon in the second stage was decided only in the final day’s time trial, when LeMond overcame a 50second deficit to take the race by eight seconds. The clash between five-time Tour champion Jacques Anquetil and the eternal runner-up, Raymond Poulidor, came to a head on the slopes of the Puy-de-Dome in 1964 when the two Frenchmen fought elbow-to-elbow up the climb. Anquetil, as so often, was the winner on that day, and took the Tour that year. Poulidor came in second, as he did on two other occasions; he also came in third five times. In 1971, a daring attack by Spaniard Luis Ocana gave him an unexpected nine-minute lead over two-time champion Eddy Merckx of Belgium. Merckx was forced to carry out a similar maneuver to claw back some of the time before a crash ended Ocana’s Tour and gave Merckx the third of his five victories. Ocana finally took the Tour in 1973 when Merckx was absent, but a year later he was unable to defend his yellow jersey due to injury. Merckx took the title back. Contador and Schleck have already been fighting for a while. This is the second year in which they are expected to finish first and second in the Tour, and this time Contador’s lead over Schleck is much diminished. For a day things got a little testy when Schleck had a mechanical problem during a Pyrenees climb and Contador failed to follow tradition by waiting for Schleck. Contador later apologized and the two made up. As both are relatively young — Contador is 27 and Schleck 25 — they are likely to be chasing each other for years to come. Schleck said he saw a major improvement in his climbing this time — “It was not like last year when Contador was just better than me; in the climbs we were pretty equal,” he said — and even in the time trial, where Contador has always excelled. “Unfortunately it was not enough to beat Alberto, but he was pretty exhausted at the end,” he said. “I think we had a nice fight out there between him and me today. This gives me again more confidence for next year and I’ll be back to win this.” He added that, given his age, he believes he has 10 more chances to win. And in the future he will have a weapon Contador can’t match — the help of his brother Frank, who withdrew injured in the early stages this year. “I know what I missed this Tour,” he said. “I definitely know it was my brother, and I know with him it would have been a different scenario in the climbs. I’ll be back here 10 more times and I can stand up there in yellow.”

Alberto Contador, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, rides during the 19th stage of the Tour de France cycling race, an individual time trial over 32.3 miles with a start in Bordeaux and finish in Pauillac, southwestern France, Saturday.

The 39-second margin is exactly the time that Schleck lost to Contador in the controversial 15th stage on Monday. That’s when the Luxembourg rider’s bike chain became entangled in a final Pyrenean climb — and Contador sped on. Saturday’s stage seemed destined for drama: Riders set off one by one down a starter’s ramp for a race against the clock and the podium positions on the line. It was the final showdown in a race that’s been a two-man battle since Schleck took the yellow jersey in the Alps in the ninth stage. Long written off as not being among the best in time trials, Schleck and many in cycling believed he would need the time trial of his life, or for Contador to have a really bad day or encounter some mishap. At the first time check Saturday, 11 miles, Schleck erased two seconds off the deficit to Contador, though both men were still about 90 seconds behind Cancellara. But by the second and third time checks, Contador gained speed and momentum on his rival. By the second check, he was seven seconds faster. By the third, near the finish, he led by 17 seconds. Cancellara, one of the world’s top timetrial riders, was 17 seconds ahead of Tony Martin of Germany. Contador was 35th, 5:43 back, while Schleck finished 44th, 6:14 behind Cancellara. Armstrong is set to go out with a whimper in his last Tour. The 38-year-old Texan once dominated time trials. But he finished Saturday’s stage in 67th place, 7:05 back of Cancellara. Overall, he is 23rd — 39:20 behind Contador, his former teammate and rival. Armstrong still can walk away with pride: His RadioShack squad is set to win the team competition. In the other race categories — assuming the riders and teams finish today — France’s Anthony Charteau has clinched the polka-dot jersey for the race’s best climber. Schleck, 25, will take home the white jersey for being the best young Tour rider for a third consecutive year. The last question concerns the green jersey, which is given to the best sprinter. Alessandro Petacchi, a 36-year-old Italian, looks likely to win that shirt.

Crosswater Continued from D1 But at the same time, all of them expressed support for the tournament as The Tradition heads into its fourth, and perhaps final, year at Crosswater. “Overall, I think (Crosswater members) have been very receptive to it and I think they have enjoyed it,” said Phil Northcote, a member at the club since 2002 whose home is just off the third hole at Crosswater. “There are always some problems when you lose the use of the course for several weeks and we only have a five-month (golf) season. And I think that’s where the biggest rub would come in.” Some Crosswater members have mixed feelings about The Tradition, to be sure. The tournament brings muchneeded money into Central Oregon. And the tournament, which has been nationally televised on the Golf Channel and NBC, has become a form of advertising for Crosswater, Sunriver Resort and the region. But the course closes to members the week previous to the tournament, and it does not reopen until the pros have left. That is the trade-off for all the members. And for many, that trade-off is acceptable. “I think it (hosting The Tradition) is good for the community and Sunriver and Crosswater,” says Steve Cappy, a Bend resident who has been a member at Crosswater for 13 years. “And you get to see some shots pulled off that I will never have the ability to make. And I enjoy the atmosphere.” But Cappy says his attitude might be different if he owned a home at the posh golf course. “If I were a homeowner (at Crosswater) and played golf at the time, I might have a very, very different viewpoint,” says Cappy, adding that he plays at most about 20 rounds per year at Crosswater. “Basically, you lose three weeks of a very short season.” Jim Hurley lives off the 14th fairway, and each year he hosts friends to watch The Tradition — one of five major championships on the 50-and-over Champions Tour — from his back deck. Hurley has enjoyed the tournament through its first three years at Crosswater, even though he would like more time to play on his home golf course. “It has certainly highlighted the strengths and weaknesses

“I think it (hosting The Tradition) is good for the community and Sunriver and Crosswater. And you get to see some shots pulled off that I will never have the ability to make. And I enjoy the atmosphere.” — Steve Cappy, a Crosswater member for 13 years. of the course, watching the pros play it, and subsequently getting out on the course and trying to accomplish what they do,” Hurley says. “I think, net, it’s been positive. But it hasn’t been without some controversy.” Sunriver Resort, for its part, has been steadfast in making sure its Crosswater members have had a place to play when their golf course is closed. That has included golf at Sunriver Resort’s Woodlands and Meadows courses, as well as reciprocal playing privileges at a number of other private courses around Central Oregon. In addition, the tournament hosts a members-only hospitality tent at Crosswater during the tournament. “(Sunriver Resort) has been very good to us, and very honest and open in every way,” says Dave Duerson, a member and homeowner at Crosswater. “There have been no surprises. … There are no complaints there.” The final round of the 2010 Tradition, set for Sunday, Aug. 22, could be the last Central Oregon sees of the tournament. Jeld-Wen’s four-year title sponsorship deal with the PGA Tour ends this year. And if the Klamath Fallsbased windows and doors maker chooses not to renew its title sponsorship deal, The Tradition’s run in Sunriver will likely end. Whether that’s good news or bad news for Crosswater members depends on each individual member. “Whether they (Crosswater members) want it back next year, I really can’t say,” says Northcote. “I think there are always some that do and maybe a lot that don’t.” Zack Hall can be reached at 541-617-7868 or at zhall@

David Tanner of Fly V Australia celebrates his victory in the Cascade Cycling Classic’s Downtown Criterium in Bend on Saturday night. Behind him, Steve Reaney of Cal Giant hits the finish line to take second place.

Men Continued from D1 Tanner followed a perfectly timed leadout by teammate Jay Thomson in the last 50 meters to cross the finish line on Wall Street with the victory. “I had so much confidence in Jay, I didn’t have to do much to finish off the job,” Tanner said. “He basically did the last threequarters of a lap on the front and he made it impossible for the other guys to win, so I really have to thank Jay.”

Women Continued from D1 A mass of boisterous spectators were on hand in downtown Bend to watch a TIBCO train of five riders execute a textbook leadout and deliver Joanne Kiesanowski of New Zealand to the finish line for the first CCC stage win of her career. Kiesanowski narrowly outlasted a late surge by Joelle Numainville of Webcor, who placed second. Keller Rohrback’s Leah Kirchmann took third. “To win a stage race like this is always important for us,” said Kiesanowski, 31. “We were looking to the criterium to win it. It was amazing teamwork the whole race.” TIBCO covered a barrage of attacks along the 1.3-kilometer,

Rory Sutherland of UnitedHealthcare retained the yellow overall leader’s jersey heading into the final stage of the Cascade today, the Awbrey Butte Circuit Race. Ben Day of Fly V Australia remained in second overall, 20 seconds behind Sutherland. Darren Lill of Fly V Australia is in third, 55 seconds back. The pro men’s criterium started at 7 p.m. Saturday and lasted for 1 hour, 15 minutes. Riders raced on a 1.3-kilometer lap that included long straightaways and tight corners along Wall Street, Oregon Avenue, Bond Street,

and Idaho Avenue. Tanner and Jacques-Maynes reached a breakaway of six other riders, which included Reaney, about 30 minutes into the race. The eight riders led the main pack by as much as 40 seconds, and maintained a sizeable lead all the way to the finish. “I jumped across with (Ben Jacques-Maynes) and we both worked well together and got across (to the breakaway),” Tanner said. UnitedHealthcare racers rode at the front of the main pack the entire race, protecting their

teammate Sutherland from the wind or a crash. Today’s Awbrey Butte Circuit Race starts and finishes at Summit High School in west Bend and takes riders on a 17-mile loop on and around Awbrey Butte and through Tumalo State Park. The pro men start at 1 p.m. and are scheduled to complete five laps for a total of 83 miles. Weather forecasts call for a high of 95 degrees today.

“To win a stage race like this is always important for us. We were looking to the criterium to win it. It was amazing teamwork the whole race.”

Cheatley of Colavita/Baci. In third place overall heading into today’s Awbrey Butte Circuit Race is Webcor’s Erinne Willock, who is 2:32 behind Abbott. The final stage of the Cascade Cycling Classic starts and finishes at Summit High School in west Bend. The elite women begin at 1:05 p.m. and will complete four laps on the 17-mile Awbrey Butte Circuit course.

Believing it had the best sprinters in the 89-rider women’s field, TIBCO reeled in one attacker after another during the 50-minute race, before forming a train five deep and drilling it on the final lap. TIBCO led the charge around the final turn and Kiesanowski made her winning move in the final 200 meters before the finish line. “We wanted it to be a bunch

sprint and it came down to one,” Kiesanowski explained. “We were covering all the moves made by the other teams. We knew we were the strongest to have a leadout.” Following Saturday’s penultimate stage, the overall standings in the women’s elite race remained unchanged. Mara Abbott of Peanut Butter & Co.

Grand prix Continued from D1 “My second jump (on Top Shelf) I didn’t ride like I wanted to,” Jordan said about her first run in the jumpoff round. “(On Lolita) I knew the angle I had to take.

St. Charles faces down its problems Hindenburg, Lakehurst, N.J., 1937

Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse, Tacoma, Wash., 1940


t some point, every organization faces a moment when it can either honestly confront the trouble it faces, or decide it will ignore or deny the difficulties so evidently on the way. So it is with the state of Oregon and, as odd as this association may sound, St. Charles Health System. Both confront enormous problems, yet the leaders of one have their heads in the sand and the leaders of the other seem to be trying to take control of the future. The state, in budget terms, is upside-down. It simply can’t afford itself. Estimates of how much vary from one estimator to another, but outgoing Gov. Ted Kulongoski thinks it’s in the billions of dollars. As the late Sen. Everett Dirksen of Illinois was rumored to have said: “A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.” That remark is probably apocryphal, but the message couldn’t be more timely. This is an election year, and Oregonians will be deciding, among other things, the makeup of the state Legislature and the occupant of the governor’s office. Given the desperate state of Oregon, you would think that clear and bold thinking would be the order of the day. Sad to say, that’s not so. In fact, if hand-wringing and denial were political philosophy, Oregon would be a beacon of wisdom. The reality is that the state is going to have to do one of two things: either downsize the government or raise taxes and fees. Unfortunately, reality does not square with the electoral calculus. Raising taxes is death with most voters, and reducing the government is equally fatal with the government work force, which is a massive voting bloc. As a result, the serious though painful solutions are avoided like the plague. How anyone is expected to choose wisely between politicians running on anything but the truth on the most important issues is beyond me. Avoiding the obvious but painful decisions is how the state got into this mess. The notion that doing the same might get it out of the mess would be comical if it were not so tragic. What a different approach at St. Charles. There is not an element of American medicine that does not face huge challenges, and with a familiar ring as to the problems of the state. The public has expectations of service that the medical system will not be able to afford for very much longer. The number of people expecting care, which is continuing to increase in price, is growing at the same time that the principle public provider of health revenue faces a future it simply can’t afford. And to complicate matters, Congress has passed, and President Barack Obama has signed, a major health care reform law whose long-term impacts are hard to decipher. It would be understandable, if not acceptable, to simply get down low and wait until the policy and financial clouds clear. But the board and the administration of St. Charles and the Physician Hospital Alignment — a group of doctors who have pledged cooperation with the hospital — have embarked on a very comprehensive reorganization of medical services. At the risk of oversimplification, the folks are trying to bring to St. Charles a system less dependent on independent providers and built on a full coordination and integration of medical services and specialties. The hope is that this approach will save money and effort by eliminating duplicated services and enhance care through more medical coordination. How it will all be implemented is still being worked out. Needless to say, it has its critics and it has its supporters. Fair enough, but regardless of the outcome, it is reassuring to see a group of men and women look to the problems of the future and decide that something can be — in fact has to be — done. Good for them. John Costa is editor-in-chief of The Bulletin.

When a disaster happens, engineers and analysts look for the problem and learn from mistakes By William J. Broad • New York Times News Service


isasters teach more than successes. While that idea may sound paradoxical, it is widely accepted among engineers. They say grim lessons arise because the reasons for triumph in matters of technology are often arbitrary and invisible, whereas the cause of a particular failure can frequently be uncovered, documented and reworked to make improvements. Disaster, in short, can become a spur to innovation. There is no question that the trial-anderror process of building machines and industries has, over the centuries, resulted in the loss of much blood and many thousands of lives. It is not that failure is desirable, or that anyone hopes for or aims for a disaster. But failures, sometimes ap-

palling, are inevitable, and given this fact, engineers say it pays to make good use of them to prevent future mistakes. The result is that the technological feats that define the modern world are sometimes the result of events that some might wish to forget. “It’s a great source of knowledge — and humbling, too — sometimes that’s necessary,” said Henry Petroski, a historian of engineering at Duke University and author of “Success Through Failure,” a 2006 book. “Nobody wants failures. But you also don’t want to let a good crisis go to waste.” Now, experts say, that kind of analysis will probably improve the complex gear and procedures that companies use to drill for oil in increasingly deep waters. They say the catastrophic failure involv-

ing the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20 — which took 11 lives and started the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history — will drive the technological progress. “The industry knows it can’t have that happen again,” said David Fowler, a professor at the University of Texas, Austin, who teaches a course on forensic engineering. “It’s going to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself.” One possible lesson of the disaster is the importance of improving blowout preventers — the devices atop wells that cut off gushing oil in emergencies. The preventer on the runaway well failed. Even before the disaster, the operators of many Gulf rigs had switched to more advanced preventers. See Disaster / F5

Don’t let clause kill transit deal


hile we can understand why Bend city councilors might not want to be on the hook for legal fees if they ever got into a court fight with Central Oregon

Intergovernmental Council, they shouldn’t let their reluctance end a relationship before it ever gets off the ground. The city and COIC currently are in talks to transfer management of the Bend Area Transit system and the city’s Dial-A-Ride program to COIC by this fall. Doing so, city leaders hope, ultimately will move the cost of the two out of the city’s general fund budget. The cost is about $1 million a year. As for COIC, its management of the city transit programs is a natural extension of the relatively limited regional system it already operates. Discussions between the parties seemed to be going well until this week, when city councilors approved an agreement that was not quite the same as the one COIC has proposed. Missing was a piece that would require the loser in any court dispute between the two to pick up the cost of the winner’s case. Councilors seemed prepared to take the clause as an insult, though there’s no indication it was intended that way. It’s true that the city has been involved in more than its share of lawsuits recently, and it may be that COIC was looking for protection from a potential lawsuit in advance. At the same time, there’s nothing in the discussions between the two

COIC’s governing board meets in early August; members should ask for an explanation why the clause is important and then eliminate it or keep it based on their judgment of the situation. parties that hints at trouble on the horizon. In reality, the merger is good for both parties, and both sides should do what it takes to make it work. COIC’s governing board meets in early August; members should ask for an explanation why the clause is important and then eliminate it or keep it based on their judgment of the situation. The city, meanwhile, should prepare itself for the possibility that the deal might fall through because of the clause. If city officials are willing to continue running BAT and DialA-Ride for the foreseeable future, they can stand firm if they wish. If not, they’d better be prepared to give in quickly and gracefully.

Those who use river must commit to safety


he Deschutes River running through Bend makes some people run wild.

They ignore the law and bound off bridges into the unknown depths. They ignore the law and drink on the river. They don’t wear life vests where they’re required or when it is just smart. More signs or more patrols might fix some of that. It’s not going to fix it all. Bill Weaver, an experienced kayaker, did almost everything right and even he could have ended up dead. Earlier this month, he and his friends were taking a run on that stretch of the river between Meadow Camp Picnic Area south of Bend and Farewell Bend Park. They had done the run some 15 times this summer. The water looks placid enough at Meadow Camp. Just downstream, it’s whitewater. Class IV and worse.

Weaver rolled his kayak and ended up pinned and unable to move against the Central Oregon Canal intake. He just managed to position his head above water. The intake had to be shut off before he could be rescued by the Bend Fire Department. The danger is clear enough in that stretch, if people read the signs. It’s not as apparent in the river’s lull at Farewell Bend, where most floaters launch. An air mattress or an inner tube is usually enough to give people a safe mix of water, sun and fun. On some days, hundreds can float safely again and again. Still, there are people who drown. Authorities don’t plan any major changes after the most recent incident at the canal intake. And short of draconian limits on river access, there’s not much more they can do. The ultimate responsibility for river safety is with the river users.

Cascades East Transit a great help By DeAnn Pilch Bulletin guest columnist


ight years ago, due to a sudden, serious, chronic illness, including significant vision loss, I became disabled. Before Cascades East Transit expanded to serve my area, I was dependent entirely on family and friends IN MY for travel. Thanks to the unfailing courtesy and responsiveness of CET staff, I have a renewed independence. The curb-to-curb service provided is extraordinary. Imagine my relief at having the bus arrive at my door, rather than requiring that I travel to a bus stop. I also receive the use of an elbow to grip for guiding assistance from the driver, ensuring that my extreme low vision doesn’t trip me up. Pickup and delivery are the extent of the service provided. I realize that I’m an adult, responsible for my own care and assistance at my destination. While drivers frequently “go the extra mile” by providing information or offering extra care, this is a benefit, not a requirement. I ride the bus five days a week, including trips between towns. In the year and a half I’ve been a passenger, there have been rare mishaps with scheduling. In each case I was given an apology, and the situation was corrected quickly. In one instance involving a medical appointment, the CET call center person offered to contact the clinic to assure them this wasn’t my fault. That kindness saved me an extra fee. In each case I also received a follow-up call regarding service and outcome.

While the actions described in a previous column do sound disturbing, this is public transportation. As is true on every transit system I’ve been on, rules are clearly posted. People of all types ride the bus. They are obligated to comply if they wish to continue riding. Occasionally someone will V I E W get out of line. I consistently see the drivers respond promptly and appropriately. For more serious or consistent infractions, there is room for warning, client response and CET measures. This means that a rider has more than one chance to modify behavior. I appreciate this generous approach to humans acting, well, human. Personally, I’ve received one of the warning letters. I brought too many bags on the bus. Bags are restricted to what can be held on the passenger’s lap. This is absolutely reasonable. These are small buses with no baggage racks or compartments. They’re meant to transport people, not parcels. I have no right to infringe on someone else’s riding space with my packages. If I need to carry five bags of groceries, large gifts or furniture, I need to make other arrangements. I’ve watched CET expand routes, extend hours, bring in numerous new drivers and call center staff. Sometimes there are errors. Anyone who’s ever worked understands that first days on a new job may mean mistakes. The important point is that CET sees that the mistakes are corrected quickly, the staff is well-trained and service is provided. They are responding to pas-

senger needs and requests with exponential growth. Through it all I ride with people who, like myself, routinely arrive at work, appointments and gatherings on time. There’s often a sense of camaraderie among regular riders. It’s fun to visit with familiar people, exchanging greetings, stories and well-wishing. Some of my favorite fellow passengers fall into the “special needs” category. I’ve had great conversations with one such rider about her love of goats, especially her miniature goat, Andy, who likes to hop on her lap, eats shoelaces and enjoys the same music she does. Sheriff Roscoe boards the bus with hearty hellos and assurances that he “has it all under control.” They help me keep my perspective and sense of humor. They are part of the fun and familiar. According to a search of Harper’s Index, one of the oldest, most reputable and prestigious sources of information, “complaint” returned 12 responses, while “praise,” “commendation” and “gratitude” each returned zero. I did get three hits on “appreciation,” but two referred to material goods while the third was “Membership of the British Sausage Appreciation Society.” It seems that Harper’s data agrees with the common belief that people are much more likely to complain than approve. For each person who agrees with “Badly served by Cascades East Transit,” there are hundreds like me who ride gratefully. DeAnn Pilch lives in Redmond.

Ancient grudges, recent history offer new take on Shakespeare


o how do you turn one of Hitler’s favorite plays into a production that New Yorkers can love? You balance a Jewish moneylender’s ugly urge to physically cut his enemy’s heart from his body with a Christian merchant’s ugly urge to symbolically cut his enemy’s soul from his body. You acknowledge that this is the only Shakespearean play that has jumped its category, morphing from “a comical history” into a disturbing drama. You realize that such a scalding tale of money, religious faith and bad faith in relationships — the same elements roiling today’s world — cannot have a festive romantic comedy finale. And you let Shylock — written as a comic villain three centuries after Jews were, in essence, expelled from England and then allowed back only to do the dirty work of usury — evolve into an abused and damaged man. After his daughter runs off with his ducats and diamonds to marry a Christian and convert, he wants revenge. “The play has a very dark heart,” says Daniel Sullivan, director of “The Mer-

chant of Venice” now at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, starring Al Pacino. “It’s simply a matter of allowing that heart to bleed through the rest of the play.” After the Holocaust, he said, there’s no way to play it as a comedy. The last time the play was produced at the Delacorte was in 1962, when George C. Scott starred as Shylock. The New York Board of Rabbis protested, calling Shylock “an amalgam of vindictiveness, cruelty and avarice.” Joseph Papp, who was Jewish, fended off the rabbis and told Scott to “go all the way” because the audience would understand biblical wrath. Papp quoted from “King Lear”: “Anger has a privilege.” Sullivan speculated that Shakespeare wanted to follow up on the success of Christopher Marlowe’s “The Jew of Malta.” “But that was a poisonously anti-Semitic play, and Shakespeare could not do what Marlowe did,” the director said. “He created a human being, for better or worse, who continues to nettle us.”

MAUREEN DOWD Portia dresses up like a man to play a lawyer and cleverly rebut Shylock’s demand for a pound of flesh in return for Antonio defaulting on his debt. She informs Shylock that he’s not allowed to shed a drop of Christian blood while he exacts his pound, so he’s stymied. She also notes that since he is “an alien” who schemed to take the life of a Venetian, he must forfeit his property and fortune. When Antonio demands that Shylock convert to Christianity, the moneylender responds: “I am content.” But Sullivan didn’t buy it. So he added a searing baptism scene, where Christian church men tear off Shylock’s yarmulke and push him into the water as the priest prays in Latin and makes the sign of the cross over him. Shylock’s

frightened Jewish friends huddle on the side in the dark. “He’s broken, and the baptism is the thing that revives him,” Sullivan says. Pacino, mesmerizing as Shylock, rejects his friends’ entreaties to hurry away. He puts his yarmulke back on and deliberately walks past the Christians, who ominously track him offstage. “Are they following him to do him harm?” Sullivan muses. “My feeling is they probably are. I don’t think he survives.” He recalled that a friend of his appeared in the play at a Shakespeare festival in Utah and when Shylock said he would convert to Christianity, Mormons in the audience broke into applause. “I realized that’s what Shakespeare’s audiences must have done,” Sullivan said. He set the play in turn-of-the-century Venice, at the advent of electricity, traders and stock markets. The customary happy ending is replaced by depleted lust and aching questions. The text is the same, but body language and emphasis imply power

struggles and disillusionment in love. “The last act has always been problematic,” the director said, “because it’s always been this ‘Hurray, the wicked Jew has been defeated’ celebration.” In this version, after successfully masquerading as a man in Venice, Lily Rabe’s Portia returns to her sumptuous estate in Belmont and realizes she can’t have it all as a woman. One of Shakespeare’s most sparkling heroines finds herself tied to a callow, bisexual, disloyal, tippling fortune-hunter. Portia, her handmaiden, Nerissa, and Shylock’s daughter, Jessica, don’t trip off into the sunrise. Haunted by the harrowing events in Venice, the women go off separately to contemplate their flighty husbands and wonder: Is that all there is? Everything is transactional. Obsession with money can trip you up. Obsession with love can let you down. And what could be a more modern message than that? Maureen Dowd is a columnist for The New York Times.

O Racial mess in ‘post-racial’ U.S. W

eren’t we supposed to enter a new age of tolerance with the election of President Barack

Obama? His half-black, half-white ancestry and broad support across racial lines suggested that at last Americans judged one another on the content of our characters — not the color of our skin or our tribal affiliations. Instead, in just 18 months of the Obama administration, racial discord is growing, and relations seem to have been set back a generation. Black voters are galvanizing behind Obama at a time of rapidly falling support. White independents, in contrast, are leaving Obama in droves. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has claimed that the loosely organized Tea Party includes “racist elements.” The National Council of La Raza has ripped the state of Arizona for its new anti-illegal immigrant legislation. Jesse Jackson characterized aspects of the multimillion-dollar bidding war to acquire basketball superstar LeBron James in terms of masters and slaves. Pundits are arguing whether the fringe racist New Black Panther Party is analogous to the Klan. In turn, a number of Americans want to know why — nearly a half-century after the Civil Rights Act, affirmative action and Great Society programs — some national lobbying organizations still identify themselves by archaic tribal terms such as “colored people” or “La

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON Raza” (“the race”) when it would be taboo for other groups to adopt such racial nomenclature. Indeed, race seems to be the subtext of almost every contemporary issue, from the soaring deficit and government spending to recent presidential appointments and the enforcement of existing immigration law. In times of growing deficits, white people are stereotyped as being angry over supposedly paying higher taxes to subsidize minorities, while minorities are stereotyped as being mostly on the receiving end of entitlements. Why the escalation of racial tension in the supposed post-racial age of Obama? First, Obama’s reputation as a racial healer was largely the creation of the media. In fact, Obama had a number of racially polarizing incidents that probably would have disqualified any other presidential candidate of the past 30 years. His two-decade apprenticeship at Trinity Church under the racist and antiSemitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright has never been adequately explained. Obama indulged in racial stereotyping him-

self when he wrote off the white lowermiddle class of Pennsylvania as clueless zealots clinging to their guns, religion and xenophobia. Obama also characterized his grandmother as a “typical white person” when he implied that her supposed fear of young black males symbolizes the prejudices of the entire white community. Michelle Obama did not help things when, in clumsy fashion, she indicted America as “just downright mean” — a nation she had not been proud of in her adult life until it embraced the hope and change represented by her husband’s candidacy. Such campaign trash talk did not stop during the first 18 months of the Obama presidency. The race-baiting Van Jones — the short-lived presidential adviser on “green jobs” — should never have been appointed. Then, the president himself criticized Cambridge, Mass., police for acting “stupidly” when they arrested his friend, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates. Then there was the outburst of Attorney General Eric Holder, who blasted America as “a nation of cowards” for not talking more about race on his terms. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was almost obsessive in self-referencing herself as a “Latina.” She also suggested that her racial background and experiences made her “wise” in a way white male colleagues could never be. Recently, Obama appealed to voters along exclusionary race and gender lines

— not traditional political allegiances — when he called upon “the young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women, who powered our victory in 2008.” Yet the country passed the old white/ black divide years ago. We are a racially diverse society of Asians, blacks, Hispanics, whites, and mixtures of all that and more. In a world of conservative Cubans and liberal whites, race is no longer necessarily a guide to politics. Who now, exactly, is the racial “Other” deserving of special consideration in hiring and education? A half-Punjabi immigrant whose father owns 500 acres? A three-quarters Puerto Rican who just arrived in New York? A Korean-American son of an orthodontist? The African-American children of a Cabinet official? The more the president appeals to his base in racial terms, the more his appointees identify themselves as members of a particular tribe, and the more political issues are framed by racial divisions, the more such racial obsession creates a backlash among the racially diverse American people. America has largely moved beyond race. Tragically, our president and a host of his supportive special interests have not.

Bloomberg News

NEW YORK — s the hearings over Elena Kagan’s confirmation went on, both parties seem convinced that the drama will benefit them. Even white college-educated women were turning away from President Barack Obama, according to a July Washington Post/ABC News poll. The administration thought that its strong support of Kagan, the educated feminist’s heroine, will help the president and fellow Democrats. Republicans thought that by grilling Kagan they please their anti-Obama constituents. Both parties are desperate: a Rasmussen poll published last week shows that only 23 percent of Americans believe their government rules with “the consent of the governed.” But it’s not Supreme Court nominees who should receive so much national attention. Rather, it is certain Supreme Court decisions that need to go under the national microscope. Instead of a congressional hearing about Kagan, Congress should hold a hearing about past Supreme Court rulings that will shape many of that court’s future opinions. One such case is Wickard v. Filburn. Wickard is the 1942 case that the Obama administration has cited as evidence of the constitutionality of penalties that will hit those who don’t buy insurance mandated by the new health-care law. Scrutiny of the Wickard ruling and its abuses over the years does much to explain voters’ current disenchantment. The Constitution gives the federal


government the power to regulate commerce “among the several states,” later known as interstate commerce. For the first 150 years of U.S. history, interstate commerce meant what it sounded like: business transactions involving companies in different states or a company operating in more than one state. But in the 1930s, President Franklin Roosevelt’s administration sought repeatedly to widen that definition. Policymakers contended, wrongly, that raising crop prices would benefit the economy overall. Authorities such as Agriculture Department Secretary Henry Wallace therefore endeavored to drive up prices by making farmers curtail supply. The federal government fined farmers who grew more than prescribed amounts. There was one farmer, however, whose wheat crop seemed clearly outside the definition of interstate commerce. Roscoe Filburn, living in Ohio, grew wheat to feed his own animals on his own land. Yet when Filburn produced more than the allowable amount of grain, authorities demanded he pay the standard penalty, 49 cents a bushel. By 1942, Wallace was vice president and had been replaced at the Agriculture Department by Claude Wickard. In the case Wickard v. Filburn, the Supreme Court endorsed the fine. Justice Robert Jackson maintained that Filburn’s wheat could be fined because its very existence had a “substantial economic effect” on the wheat market. Betraying some wonder at this outcome, The New York Times noted that Jackson actually wrote in his opinion that Filburn might have won his case had

he fed his animals unthreshed wheat. The act of threshing the wheat, Jackson said, was what made Filburn’s wheat part of the national wheat market. Even in the 1940s, the Times wasn’t alone in sensing the absurdity of Wickard. Americans knew that limiting supply to drive up prices didn’t necessarily promote general economic growth. But Americans accept Supreme Court opinions more respectfully than the Ten Commandments. One administration after another has hidden behind the generous cover of the Wickard ruling when rewarding the farm vote with subsidies. There has been a cost beyond the dollars wasted: a rise in political cynicism. They also see that Wickard routinely leads politicians to hypocrisy. Presi-

KRISTOF buk Glacier. Breashears located the very spot from which Mallory had snapped that photo and took another — only it is a different scene because the glacier has lost 330 feet of vertical ice. Some research in social psychology suggests that our brains are not well adapted to protect ourselves from gradually encroaching harms. We evolved to be wary of saber-toothed tigers and blizzards, but not of climate change — and maybe that’s also why we in the media tend to cover weather but not climate. The upshot is that we’re horrifyingly nonchalant at the prospect that rising carbon emissions may devastate our favorite planet. NASA says that the January-throughJune period this year was the hottest globally since measurements began in 1880. The website, which calls for more action on climate change, suggests that 2010 is likely to be the warmest year on record. Likewise, the Global Snow Lab at Rutgers University says that the months of May and

June had the lowest snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere since the lab began satellite observations in 1967. So signs of danger abound, but like the proverbial slow-boiling frog, we seem unable to rouse ourselves. (Actually, it seems that frogs will not remain in a beaker that is slowly heated. quotes a distinguished zoologist as saying that frogs become agitated as the temperature slowly rises and struggle to escape, although it does not specify how the zoologist knows this.) From our own beaker, we’ve watched with glazed eyes as glaciers have retreated worldwide. Glacier National Park now has only about 25 glaciers, compared with around 150 a century ago. In the Himalayas, the shrinkage seems to be accelerating, with Chinese scientific measurements suggesting that some glaciers are losing up to 26 feet in height per year. Orville Schell, who runs China programs at the Asia Society, described passing a series of pagodas as he approached the Mingyong Glacier on the Tibetan plateau. The pagodas were viewing platforms and had to be rebuilt as the glacier retreated: This monumental, almost eternal force of nature seemed mortally wounded. “A glacier is a giant part of the alpine landscape, something we always saw as immortal,” Schell said. “But now this glacier is dying before our eyes.”


An Indian glaciologist, Syed Iqbal Hasnain, now at the Stimson Center in Washington, said most Himalayan glaciers are in retreat for three reasons. First is the overall warming tied to carbon emissions. Second, rain and snow patterns are changing, so that less new snow is added to replace what melts. Third, pollution from trucks and smoke covers glaciers with carbon soot so that their surfaces become darker and less reflective — causing them to melt more quickly. The retreat of the glaciers threatens agriculture downstream. A study published last month in Science magazine indicated that glacier melt is essential for the Indus and Brahmaputra rivers, while less important a component of the Ganges, Yellow and Yangtze rivers. The potential disappearance of the glaciers, the report said, is “threatening the food security of an estimated 60 million people” in the Indus and Brahmaputra basins. We Americans have been galvanized by the oil spill on our gulf coast because we see tar balls and dead sea birds as visceral reminders of our hubris in deep sea drilling. The melting glaciers should be a similar warning of our hubris — and of the consequences that the Earth will face for centuries unless we address carbon emissions today.

dent Obama has said repeatedly that he would like to save billions in the federal budget by trimming farm subsidies. Achieving that is hard to do thanks to the established farm lobby that lives off revenue made possible by the Wickard ruling. Yet Obama won’t attack Wickard. That’s because many nonagricultural projects important to his party are legitimized by Wickard. Criticizing farm subsidies that flourished under Wickard, even as Obama’s lawyers lean on the ruling to defend the new health plan, is the sort of inconsistency that puts off voters. Democrats aren’t the only ones who make fools of themselves with Wickard. In recent decades two impulses have driven the Grand Old Party. The first is federalism, curtailing the power of the federal government and pushing back against efforts at government expansion such as Wickard. The second policy impulse is to push socially conservative legislation and to advance a family values agenda in court rulings. It is time to focus not on justices but on the body of precedent they work from. Overturning Wickard is possible: the Supreme Court can do it. Better yet would be passage of a constitutional amendment that explicitly delineates limits to government intervention in states. Both parties will call such an endeavor difficult. But undertaking difficult tasks is what earning the “consent of the governed” is all about.

Slow march to a boil demands our attention D NICHOLAS

avid Breashears is one of America’s legendary mountain climbers, a man who has climbed Mount Everest five times and led the Everest IMAX film team in 1996. These days, Breashears is still climbing the Himalayas, but he is lugging more than pitons and ice axes. He’s also carrying special cameras to document stunning declines in glaciers on the roof of the world. Breashears first reached the top of Everest in 1983, and in many subsequent trips to the region he noticed the topography changing, the glaciers shrinking. So he dug out archive photos from early Himalayan expeditions, and then journeyed across ridges and crevasses to photograph from the exact same spots. The pairs of matched photographs, old and new, are staggering. Time and again, the same glaciers have shrunk drastically in every direction, often losing hundreds of feet in height. “I was just incredulous,” he told me. “We took measurements with laser range finders to measure the loss of height of the glaciers. The drop was often the equivalent of a 35- or 40-story building.” Breashears led me through a display of these paired photographs at the Asia Society in New York. One 1921 photo by George Mallory, the famous mountaineer who died near the summit of Everest three years later, shows the Main Rong-

Technocrats may set off a rebellion hen historians look back on the period between 2001 and 2011, they will be amazed that a nation that professed to hate bureaucracy produced so much of it. During the first part of this period, the Republicans were in control. They expanded a vast national security bureaucracy. In their series in The Washington Post, Dana Priest and William M. Arkin detail the size of this apparatus. More than 1,200 government agencies and 1,900 private companies work on counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence programs at around 10,000 sites across the country. An estimated 854,000 people have top-secret security clearance. These analysts produce 50,000 reports a year — a flow of paper so great that many are completely ignored. In the second part of the period, Democrats were in control. They augmented the national security bureaucracy but spent the bulk of their energies expanding bureaucracies in domestic spheres. First, they passed a health care law. This law created 183 new agencies, commissions, panels and other bodies, according to an analysis by Robert Moffit of the Heritage Foundation. These include things like the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement Program, an Interagency Pain Research Coordinating Committee and a Cures Acceleration Network Review Board. The purpose of the new apparatus was simple: to give government experts the power to analyze and rationalize the nation’s health care system. A team of experts on the newly created Independent Medicare Advisory Council was ordered to review and streamline Medicare. A team of experts within the Office of Personnel Management was directed to help set standards for insurance companies in the health care exchanges. Teams of experts serving on comparative effectiveness boards were told to survey data and determine which medical treatments work best and most efficiently. Democrats also passed a financial reform law. The law that originally created the Federal Reserve was a mere 31 pages. The Sarbanes-Oxley banking reform act, passed in 2002, was only 66 pages. But the 2010 financial reform law was 2,319 pages, an intricately engineered technocratic apparatus. As Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute noted, the financial reform law is seven times longer than the last five pieces of banking legislation combined. The law calls upon government experts to make some heroic judgments. For example, it calls upon regulators to break up banks that might be about to pose a risk to the country’s economy. That is to say, investors may believe a bank is stable. The executives of the bank may believe it is stable. But the regulators are called upon to exercise their superior vision and determine which banks are stable and which are not. When historians look back on this period, they will see it as another progressive era. It is not a liberal era — when government intervenes to seize wealth and power and distribute it to the havenots. It’s not a conservative era, when the governing class concedes that the world is too complicated to be managed from the center. It’s a progressive era, based on the faith in government experts and their ability to use social science analysis to manage complex systems. This progressive era is being promulgated without much popular support. Already this effort is generating a fierce, almost culture-war-style backlash. It is generating a backlash among people who do not have faith in Washington, who do not have faith that trained experts have superior abilities to organize society, who do not believe national rules can successfully contend with the intricacies of local contexts and cultures. This progressive era amounts to a high-stakes test. If the country remains safe and the health care and financial reforms work, then we will have witnessed a life-altering event. We’ll have received powerful evidence that central regulations can successfully organize fast-moving information-age societies. If the reforms fail, then the popular backlash will be ferocious. Large sectors of the population will feel as if they were subjected to a doomed experiment they did not consent to. They will feel as if their country has been hijacked by a self-serving professional class mostly interested in providing for themselves. If that backlash gains strength, well, what’s the 21st-century version of the guillotine?

Fascinating characters populate ‘Work Song’ “Work Song” by Ivan Doig (Riverhead, 278 pgs., $25.95)

Intrigue, fine prose mark 2 mysteries

By Tim Rutten

By Carole E. Barrowman

Los Angeles Times

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

In one of the memorable broadcast talks that did so much to confirm the late Patrick Kavanagh’s reputation as a major poet, Seamus Heaney cannily observed that while the onetime County Monaghan farmer’s focus was — in the best sense — parochial, his sensibility never was provincial. Something similar could be said of the best American writing among the works we tend — for no better reason than convenience — to classify as “regional literature.” Ivan Doig is an exemplary regional voice in American letters, which simply means he is a very fine writer who has chosen to site his work in the West, particularly in Montana, where he was born and grew up. “Work Song” is his 10th novel — a sequel to his bestselling “The W h i s t l i ng Season” — and as enjoyable and subtly thought-provoking a piece of fiction as you’re likely to pick up this summer. It’s a book that can be appreciated just for the quality of the prose and the author’s adherence to the sturdy conventions of old-fashioned narrative or for Doig’s sly gloss on Western genre fiction and unforced evocation of our current condition — or, better yet, for all those things. “Work Song” is set in the strifetorn year of 1919. World War I is newly over, and its veterans have returned to their jobs. The “Red Scare” has begun, and conflict between capital and labor is endemic with the radical International Workers of the World vying with more unions for workers’ loyalty. Doig again sets his story in Montana, but not the familiar “big sky country” with its rolling shortgrass prairies to the east and deep forested river valleys to the west. This story is played out entirely in the industrialized cities of Butte and Anaconda — then the copper mining and smelting centers of a burgeoning U.S. economy.

“Plans go wrong, bad things happen, people die.” If you’re David Loogan, the unassuming main character in Harry Dolan’s debut mystery, “Bad Things Happen” (Berkley Books, $15), things don’t always go hinky in that order. Dolan’s novel is a slick, sophisticated crime story set at a mystery magazine in Ann Arbor, Mich. (really). This noir tale has a blackmailer who gives “Hamlet” and Hammett equal respect, a femme fatale who is “sleek and blond” with a “degree in English literature” (my weapon of choice) and more than enough MacGuffins to satisfy any Hitchcock fan. The novel opens with Loogan buying a shovel that “meet(s) certain requirements” for burying a body. The plot gets deeper and dirtier when Loogan is seduced into searching for a manuscript as elusive (and metaphorical) as a Maltese Falcon. While Dolan’s debut channels the best crime fiction from the ’30s and ’40s, Adam Ross’ debut “Mr. Peanut” (Knopf, $25.95) has the sensibility of Patricia Highsmith and the subject matter of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” But funnier. David Pepin, a wealthy video game designer, has Walter Mitty-like dreams about killing his wife. When she’s found dead from anaphylactic shock (she has a peanut allergy), Pepin is a suspect. Ross’ writing is darkly funny and beautifully complex. The narrative is influenced by game theory (everyone has an avatar) and the kind of surreal perspective you see in an M.C. Escher print (one hangs on the Pepins’ wall). There may be a fine line between love and hate, but in this novel it’s the choice between physical or psychological violence “during a moment of terrible privacy” that separates marriage and murder.

Copper capital This is the unfamiliar urban West, and the ranchers, farmers, cowboys and Native Americans who populate most fiction about the region are mentioned only in passing. Butte in those years was called “the richest hill on earth” and its people came from all the immigrant groups that had left their countries to do this nation’s hard work, particularly underground — the Irish, Welsh, Cornishmen and by 1919 the Ruthenians. (In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Butte had the second-largest Irish population outside Dublin.) Readers of “The Whistling Season” will be happy to reacquaint themselves with its engaging protagonist and first-person narrator, Morris (Morrie) Morgan, an itinerant school teacher, University of Chicago-educated polymath and all-around charmer. (It’s not necessary to have read the earlier novel, as “Work Song” artfully provides all the essential details.) The name, of course, is simply one of Morrie’s disguises, for he’s a fugitive twice over — once from the Chicago gambling syndicate he and his boxer brother crossed and again from the Montana hamlet where he taught school and which he fled to disentangle himself from an impossible romance with his dead brother’s widow, Rose, who locals believed was his sister. In the intervening 10 years, Morrie has traveled the world and now has drifted back to Montana, partly in hope of recharging his finances in Butte, partly for proximity to Rose, now married. Unfortunately, the railroad’s loss of Morrie’s trunk means he has arrived in town carrying only a single satchel. That plus his having no visible means of support quickly attracts the attention of a pair of Anaconda Co. goons, who are convinced he’s a “red” and

One of this novel’s pleasures is the rich cast of secondary characters Doig effortlessly sketches into his narrative. Grace, the attractive young widow who runs the boarding house where Morrie lands and the two elderly Welsh miners who are her other lodgers are among them. So too the unctuous Scandinavian mortician to whom Morrie applies for his first job in Butte. Morrie is hired as a “cryer,” the funeral home’s official representative at the nightly wakes held by its mostly Irish clientele. It’s a job that provides him with free drink and food and an introduction to the local miners and their union. Soon, however, he moves on to a position in the town library, which is run by Sam Sandison, a grandly imperious, bibliomaniacal exrancher who secured the job by loaning his own vast collection of fine and rare books to form the nucleus of the public collection. Before long, Morrie — who simply wants to stay out of harm’s way and hit a few of the wagers he likes to place — has encountered an ex-student of his, now herself a teacher, and her fiery fiance, leader of the local miners’ union. They quickly enmesh Morrie in the never-ending struggle with the company and the vicious competition with the unseen but omnipresent Wobblies. Before the story resolves itself in a comprehensive but somewhat breakneck conclusion, the significance of the title will become clear, and Sandison — who turns out to be a man with a terrible secret and a stricken conscience — will come to play an unexpected, deeply satisfying role. To reveal more would spoil things, but keep in mind the year 1919 and the national pastime.

The author answers a few questions “Work Song” is a sequel to Montana native Ivan Doig’s popular 2006 book “The Whistling Season” and features Morrie Morgan, the “Whistling Season” schoolteacher with a mysterious past. Doig plops Morgan down in 1919 Butte, Mont., an ethnic stew of Cornish, Irish, Welsh and Finns (among others), the coppermining capital of the world. It’s a story of labor unrest, love and libraries, among other things. Why Butte in 1919? Doig answered that and other questions:

Q: A:

Talk about why you sent Morrie to Butte. Butte has always been a place full of what I call big elbow-y stories. And Butte was at its biggest in 1918 and in 1919, the same year as the Seattle General Strike. That was very much on the minds of the authorities in Butte, and one reason they were worried about the Wobblies (the radical International Workers of the World union). There are Butte people at all my readings, from half a dozen to 20 or 30. They’re still proud of Butte and still taken with it.


Reintroduce us to Morrie Morgan.


What he’s been doing (since the end of “The Whistling Season”) has been left to the imagination. He’s older. Morrie is going ... where are the riches? He’s a lightweight, 125-130 pounds. He loves his duds, loves his books, loves the high life.


Is the character Sandy Sandison, the Butte city librarian with the dubious past and a lust for rare books, based on a real person? Sandison is based on a historical character, Granville Stuart, an early cattle king and one of the many powers behind the Montana cattlemen’s association. (After a severe winter wiped out his cattle), Stuart wound up as the librarian of Butte. I made up Sandison — Stuart took the job to have an income. Sandison became the librarian because he was a book aficionado par excellence.


Q: A:

Which do you prefer, writing or research? The research is the necessary spadework. Even when I was working on my doctorate (history, University of Washington) I was writing poetry, the occasional magazine article. I’m more of a magpie researcher than someone who wants to live in it all the time. — The Seattle Times

Author blasts a hemingway at charlatans

Disaster Continued from F1 Of course, an alternative to improving a particular form of technology might be to discard it altogether as too risky or too damaging. Abandoning offshore drilling is certainly one result that some environmentalists would push for — and not only because of potential disasters like the one in the Gulf. They would rather see technologies that pump carbon into the atmosphere, threatening to speed global climate change, go extinct than evolve. In London on June 22 at the World National Oil Companies Congress, protesters from Greenpeace interrupted an official from BP, the company that drilled the runaway well. Planetary responsibility, a protester shouted before being taken away, “means stopping the push for dangerous drilling in deep waters.” The history of technology suggests that such an end is unlikely. Devices fall out of favor, but seldom if ever get abolished by design. The explosion of the Hindenburg showed the dangers of hydrogen as a lifting gas and resulted in new emphasis on helium, which is not flammable, rather than ending the reign of rigid airships.

Deadly flaws Engineering, by definition, is a problem-solving profession. Technology analysts say that constructive impulse, and its probable result for deep ocean drilling, is that innovation through failure analysis will make the wells safer, whatever the merits of reducing human reliance on oil. They hold that the BP disaster, like countless others, will ultimately inspire technological advance. The sinking of the Titanic, the meltdown of the Chernobyl reactor in 1986, the collapse of the World Trade Center — all forced engineers to address what came to be seen as deadly flaws. “Any engineering failure has a lot of lessons,” said Gary Halada, a professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook who teaches a course called “Learning from Disaster.” Design engineers say that, too frequently, the nature of their profession is to fly blind. Eric Brown, a British engineer who developed aircraft during World War II and afterward taught at Imperial College London, candidly described the predicament. In a 1967 book, he called structural engineering “the art of molding materials we do not really understand into shapes we cannot really analyze, so as to withstand forces we cannot really assess, in such a way that the public does not really suspect.” Among other things, Brown taught failure analysis. Petroski, at Duke, writing in “Success Through Failure,” noted the innovative corollary. Failures, he said, “always teach us more than the successes about the design of things. And thus the failures often lead to redesigns — to new, improved things.”

A bridge and a rig One of his favorite examples is the 1940 collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The span, at the time the world’s third-longest suspension bridge, crossed a strait of Puget Sound near Tacoma, Wash. A few months after its

After the deadly 2007 Interstate 35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis, the National Transportation and Safety Board said a design flaw was the likely cause of the bridge’s failure. opening, high winds caused the bridge to fail in a roar of twisted metal and shattered concrete. No one died. The only fatality was a black cocker spaniel named Tubby. Petroski said the basic problem lay in false confidence. Over the decades, engineers had built increasingly long suspension bridges, with each new design more ambitious. The longest span of the Brooklyn Bridge, which opened to traffic in 1883, was 1,595 feet. The George Washington Bridge (1931) more than doubled that distance to 3,500 feet. And the Golden Gate Bridge (1937) went even farther, stretching its middle span to 4,200 feet. “This is where success leads to failure,” Petroski said in an interview. “You’ve got all these things working. We want to make them longer and more slender.” The Tacoma bridge not only possessed a very long central span — 2,800 feet — but its concrete roadway consisted of just two lanes, and its deck was quite shallow. The wind that day caused the insubstantial thoroughfare to undulate wildly up and down and then disintegrate. (A 16-millimeter movie camera captured the violent collapse.) Teams of investigators studied the collapse carefully, and designers of suspension bridges took away several lessons. The main one was to make sure the road’s weight and girth were sufficient to avoid risky perturbations from high winds. Petroski said the collapse had a direct impact on the design of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which opened in 1964 to link Brooklyn and Staten Island. Its longest span was 4,260 feet — making it, at the time, the world’s longest suspension bridge and potentially a disaster-in-waiting. To defuse the threat of high winds, the designers from the start made the roadway quite stiff and added a second deck, even though the volume of traffic was insufficient at first to warrant the lower one. The lower deck remained closed to traffic for five years, opening in 1969. “Tacoma Narrows changed the way that suspension bridges were built,” Petroski said. “Before it happened, bridge designers didn’t take the wind seriously.” Another example in learning from disaster centers on an oil drilling rig called Ocean Ranger. In 1982, the rig, the world’s

Maggie O’Dell is back in exciting ‘Damaged’ “Damaged” by Alex Kava (Doubleday, 272 pgs., $24.95)

By Oline H. Cogdill McClatchy-Tribune News Service

In her intriguing and sometimes gruesome eighth outing with Maggie O’Dell, Alex Kava sets up seemingly unrelated plot threads. While at first blush each tale seems separate, Kava quickly weaves these stories together into a cohesive, exciting plot. “Damaged” works as a briskly paced thriller that delivers several unusual twists. It focuses more on a high-concept plot with a strong sense of realism rather than deep character studies. Maggie, an FBI special agent, and Charlie Wurth, the Department of Homeland Security’s deputy director, are teamed up again, this time to investigate a number of stainless steel coolers containing body parts found

floating in Florida’s Pensacola Bay. Maggie’s investigation includes partnering with the Coast Guard and especially Liz Bailey, the agency’s rescue swimmer. Florida’s Panhandle also is the destination of Col. Benjamin Platt, investigating why a bacteria is killing soldiers recuperating from surgery. Meanwhile, a shadowy and sleazy man who calls himself a body-parts broker has arrived in Pensacola and is making friends with a financially-strapped funeral home director. All this is going on while the Panhandle prepares for a hurricane. Kava keeps “Damaged” from falling under the weight of so many elements with her skillful storytelling. In the wake of the Gulf oil spill, “Damaged” has an unintentionally resonant title and still depicts a pristine paradise, but Kava shows there are many kinds of man-made disasters.

largest, capsized and sank off Newfoundland in a fierce winter storm, killing all 84 crew members. The calamity is detailed in a 2001 book, “Inviting Disaster: Lessons from the Edge of Technology,” by James R. Chiles. The floating rig, longer than a football field and 15 stories high, had eight hollow legs. At the bottom were giant pontoons that crewmen could fill with seawater or pump dry, raising the rig above the largest storm waves — in theory, at least. The night the rig capsized, the sea smashed in a glass porthole in the pontoon control room, soaking its electrical panel. Investigators found that the resulting short circuits began a cascade of failures and miscalculations that resulted in the rig’s sinking. The lessons of the tragedy included remembering to shut watertight storm hatches over glass windows, buying all crew members insulated survival suits (about $450 each at the time) and rethinking aspects of rig architecture. “It was a terrible design,” said Halada of the State University of New York. “But they learned from it.”

The hard decisions Increasingly, such tragedies get studied, and not just at Stony Brook. The Stanford University Center for Professional Development offers a graduate certificate in advanced structures and failure analysis. Drexel University offers a master’s degree in forensic science with a focus on engineering. So too, professional engineering has produced a subspecialty that investigates disasters. One of the biggest names in the busi-

ness is Exponent, a consulting company based in Menlo Park, Calif. It has a staff of 900 specialists around the globe with training in 90 engineering and scientific fields. Exponent says its analysts deal with everything from cars and roller coasters to oil rigs and hip replacements. “We analyze failures and accidents,” the company says, “to determine their causes and to understand how to prevent them.” Forensic engineers say it is too soon to know what happened with Deepwater Horizon, whose demise flooded the Gulf with crude oil. They note that numerous federal agencies are involved in a series of detailed investigations, and that President Barack Obama has appointed a blue-ribbon commission to make recommendations on how to strengthen federal oversight of oil rigs. But the engineers hold, seemingly with one voice, that the investigatory findings will eventually improve the art of drilling for oil in deep waters — at least until the next unexpected tragedy, and the next lesson in making the technology safer. One lesson might be to build blowout preventers with more than one blind shear ram. In an emergency, the massive blades of these devices slice through the drill pipe to cut off the flow of gushing oil. The Deepwater Horizon had just one; a third of the rigs in the Gulf now have two. Perhaps regulators will decide that rig operators, whatever the cost, should install more blind shear rams on all blowout preventers. “It’s like our personal lives,” said Fowler of the University of Texas. “Failure can force us to make hard decisions.”

The line between reality and fiction is not so much blurred as stomped on in Adam Langer’s amusing new novel, a satiric barb aimed directly at the literary world and those who seek to subvert it for fame, money and — please, God — a shot at getting on “Oprah.” Author of three novels and a memoir about his father, Langer takes special delight in skewering the New York book scene, from its famous authors (“There was a trio of drunk writers, all named Jonathan, each of whom was complaining that the Times critic Michiko Kakutani had written she’d liked their earlier books better”) to its infamous literary hoaxes (“a drug addict and ruffian had exaggerated his criminal past; a purported gang banger from South Central L.A. turned out to be a prep school girl from the San Fernando Valley; a memoir of an abusive household was apparently a libelous childhood fantasy …”). His references are clever, snarky and right on target. Our narrator is bitter young Ian Minot, a coffee-shop barista who can’t get anyone to take him — or his short stories — seriously. His rejection letters tend to run along the lines of “Good luck placing this and all your future submissions elsewhere.” His Romanian girlfriend Anya is named to the prestigious “31 Most Promising Writers Under 31” list — a direct shot at The New Yorker’s “20 under 40” canonization? — and he’s

sick with jealousy over a poorly written, suspiciously implausible memoir by a thug named Blade. Then a mysterious guy pops up at the coffee shop to offer Ian a chance to bite the hand that refuses to feed him. Take my unread, unloved, unpublished novel, he says. Sell it as a memoir. Watch the money roll in. Find yourself famous. Publish your stories. And then announce the book is a fake. Ian simply can’t resist the challenge, nor will book lovers resist this promising premise — at first. Langer hilariously reshapes language to reflect Ian’s obsession with literature (a shot of whiskey is a faulkner, while a gin rickey is a fitzgerald; a humbert is a perv and so on). Unfortunately, Langer undercuts the clever conceit by including an unnecessary glossary. Anybody sufficiently literary-minded to appreciate the insider jokes is going to understand that “franzens” are a certain sort of black-framed glasses, and an atwood is a mop of curly hair. And can probably guess to which body part “portnoy” refers. But the niggling misstep that eventually dooms “The Thieves of Manhattan” is the fictional story Ian passes off as a memoir, an adventure involving a mysterious girl, a rare book and a plot to steal it. The twist is that the story eventually begins to come true, with Ian faced off against bad guys. Instead of winding up a smartypants little gem, “Thieves” tries to woo us with preposterous action. Listen, we wear franzens. We’re too hip for such foolishness.

Tales of contemporary Alaska adventure “Crossing the Gates of Alaska: One Man, Two Dogs, 600 Miles Off the Map” by Dave Metz (Citadel, 272 pgs., $14.95) “A Long Trek Home: 4,000 Miles by Boot, Raft and Ski” by Erin McKittrick (Mountaineers Books, 224 pgs., $18.95)

the world by watching, listening and smelling.” The deeper she ventured into the Alaskan wilderness the more she felt she was an Alaskan, McKittrick writes. “Hig had always been an Alaskan. And I was becoming one. The more Alaskans we met the more I felt as though I belonged

among this bizarre mishmash of oddballs and adventurous spirits.” The trip finally ended with two revelations: McKittrick was pregnant, and she was an Alaskan. Today McKittrick lives with Hig and their son Katmai Winter, named for a volcano. They built a yurt in Seldovia,

near Hig’s parents. “Long before we reached Unimak Island, we knew we weren’t going back,” McKittrick wrote. “We hadn’t kept a house or apartment in Seattle. ... We lived anywhere and everywhere. But after a year as nomads, we were ready to start digging in.”

“My body is burning itself away while I walk along such impassible ground.” — Dave Metz, “Crossing the Gates of Alaska”

By Susan Gilmore The Seattle Times

When Dave Metz dumped his gear to lighten his load and save his life on his epic adventure across the Alaska bush, it’s a good thing he kept his journal. Otherwise, his book, “Crossing the Gates of Alaska: One Man, Two Dogs, 600 Miles Off the Map,” might not exist. And that would be a shame. Metz, who lives in Oregon and works for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife as a fish biologist, has been to Alaska a dozen times, but his adventure in the bush could well have been his last. As he writes in his prologue: “I’m sitting on a waist-high hummock in the middle of a barren, wind-swept pass with my two dogs in the heart of the Brooks Range. The vastness of the land makes my jaw drop and I wonder how I will walk out of here with so little food. My body is burning itself away while I walk along such impassible ground.” Metz embarked on his 2007 adventure with a satellite phone and two Airedale terriers. His new dogs helped pull him across his three-month adventure, where he skied from Kotzebue to Ambler and hiked into the Alaska interior to his destination at Anaktuvuk Pass, a 400-mile trek. His girlfriend back home helped track his adventure and arranged food drops along the route. Metz left Oregon in March 2007 with dogs Jimmy and Will. His goal was to walk the length of the vast Brooks Range, joining just a handful of people who have traversed its entire length. While he meets natives along the way, his journey is a solo, often scary one, just Metz and his Airedales. “The snow forms the beginning of a near vertical chute that falls at least a thousand feet,” he writes. “My feet, shaking, manage to hug the thin edge of solid rock.” Along the way he meets moose and a pack of wolves. As his supplies began to run out, he hiked for nine hours with no food, saving what food remained to share with his dogs. “No way on earth am I going to let myself or the dogs starve to death,” Metz writes. Along the way he ditches some of his camping gear, and even cuts off part of the handle of his toothbrush to help lighten the load. Finally, Metz arrives at Anaktuvuk Pass. He says to his dogs: “We’ve done it you guys. We’ve crossed the gates of the arctic.”

Heading north Erin McKittrick’s “A Long Trek Home,” another recently released Alaska adventure book, is the story of the 13month journey McKittrick and her husband, Hig, took, hiking and paddling 4,000 miles from Seattle to the Aleutian Islands solely (almost) by human power. Along the way the couple would stop in small towns and share their stories, often talking to the local media. Wrote McKittrick: “We wanted to talk to them because we thought what we were doing was wonderful and hopefully meaningful. They wanted to talk to us because they thought what we were doing was nuts.” Slowly, she said, her perception of life changed. “I had never spent so much time in my life just noticing things, the intense smell of a broken spruce branch in cold still air, the tracks of a tiny pine siskin, the sliding trail of a river otter, the sound of cracking ice.

B U S I N E SS IN BRIEF Insurers pull back on kids’ health coverage Some major health insurance companies have stopped issuing certain types of policies for children, an unintended consequence of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law, state officials said last week. Florida’s insurance commissioner said UnitedHealthcare and Blue Cross Blue Shield have stopped issuing new policies that cover children individually. Oklahoma’s said a couple of local insurers in that state have done likewise. The Obama administration reacted sharply to the insurance pullback, expressing its disappointment. Starting later this year, the new health care reform law requires insurers to accept children regardless of medical problems — a major early benefit of the complex legislation. Insurers are worried parents will wait until kids get sick to sign them up, saddling the companies with unpredictable costs. To get around the problem, insurance companies and state insurance commissioners are pressing the federal government to require an open enrollment period for the guaranteed children’s coverage. The major types of coverage for children — employer plans and government programs — are not be affected by the disruption. But a subset of policies — those that cover children as individuals — may run into problems. Even so, insurers are not canceling children’s coverage already issued, but refusing to write new policies.

New lows for 30-year loans, Treasury notes Mortgage rates fell to fresh record lows last week as concerns about the economic recovery drove down Treasury bond yields. Freddie Mac reported the average rate for 30-year fixed loans averaged 4.56 percent, down from 4.57 percent the week before and 5.2 percent a year ago. A 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular option in the refinance market, averaged 4.03 percent, down from 4.06 percent the week before and 4.68 percent a year ago. The rates are the lowest since the mortgage giant began tracking the 30-year mortgage in 1971 and the 15year in 1991. Worries about the economy have caused demand to surge for government securities, sending the yield on the 10-year Treasury note below 2.9 percent Wednesday — a 15-month low. — From wire reports


The Shire lives on, but not the fantasy Bend development takes on new name, new residents, new mind-set By David Holley • The Bulletin A year after a private Hood River equity fund bought The Shire housing development from Umpqua Bank, Bend’s version of the fictional land of hobbits has changed in only a few ways. One is a new name. No longer do its new owners, Castle Advisers LLC, refer to it as The Shire, but instead Forest Creek. And since Castle Advisers bought the 14 empty lots, two developed homes and a contiguous 3-acre parcel in May 2009, new faces have appeared. Hardy and Ann Hanson bought the second Shire home in mid-2009. Greg Steckler is the southeast Bend development’s longeststanding owner, having owned the first completed house since 2007. “We got a heck of a deal,â€? said Hardy Hanson, who works for the city. “We just love the house.â€? That deal amounts to less than half the price of its original listing — down to $395,000 from the $899,000 it was listed for in 2008. Castle Advisers immediately renamed the development Forest Creek when it was purchased in May 2009, said A.J. Kitt, director of real estate holdings for the firm. Kitt said his organization wanted to get away from the stigma that surrounded The Shire. Part of that stigma was Umpqua Bank’s January 2009 foreclosure on the development based on a $3.4 million loan it issued to Janet and Lynn McDonald. The other part was the July 2008 death of Lynn McDonald, Kitt said. McDonald, then 58, was a former emergency room physician at St. Charles Bend whose body was found in the Deschutes River after he had been missing for two days, according to The Bulletin’s archives. A notice of default for The Shire development was filed at the end of July 2008. Renaming to Forest Creek also means that Kitt’s company is disassociating from “the J.R.R. Tolkien mindset,â€? he said. But he said new houses will be held to the existing codes, covenants and restrictions that require homes to be European, Old World-style cottages. See Shire / G5

Hardy Hanson is the newest owner of a 3,200-square-foot home in The Shire subdivision. Behind the home is shared space that includes a “hobbit hole� for garden supplies.

The federal government has become serious about virginity — at least when it comes to olive oil. Propelled by complaints about slippery food purveyors selling low-end products as highend goods, or olive oils being doctored with cheaper canola, safflower or peanut oils, the U.S. Department of Agriculture this fall will roll out new standards to help ensure that consumers buying “100 percent extra virgin� olive oil get what they pay for. But the new rules are voluntary — not mandatory — so the prospect of more slick shenanigans continues. Demand for the greenishgold oil is surging in American kitchens. Consumers here sopped up 79 million gallons in 2008 — up from 47 million gallons a decade earlier. See Olive oil / G5

If you’re rich, 2010 is a great year to die. This is the year that Congress has allowed the estate tax to lapse, enabling heirs to receive their windfalls without Uncle Sam taking a cut for the first time in nearly 100 years. A reminder came the week of July 11 with the passing of billionaire New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. The baseball titan’s heirs are likely to escape some $500 million in taxes, experts estimate, a fortune that has spotlighted Bush-era tax policies and the long debate over whether government spending or tax cutting is best for a shaky economy. As congressional Democrats struggled until Thursday to extend unemployment benefits for jobless


Congress allowed the estate tax — derisively called the “death tax� by critics — to expire this year, but it is scheduled to come back in 2011. workers, the Republican-led push for inheritance tax breaks could draw a divide between the parties heading into the fall elections. But the line is somewhat fuzzy — several Democrats have joined the Republicans in advocating breaks for heirs. See Billionaires / G3

Why the recession is just the beginning By Matt Miller Special to The Washington Post


ere’s a cheery midsummer thought. The 15 million unemployed, the sluggish growth, the debt hangover and de-leveraging, the soaring deficits — these woes may not be our biggest economic problems. The real test for the U.S. economy starts once we get past the fallout from the burst housing and banking bubbles that triggered the recession. And when it comes to that challenge — which involves preserving U.S. living standards in a world of global competition — we either don’t know what to do, or we do know but seem to have little intention of doing it. A brief trot through history places this moment in context. After World War II, when the U.S. was the only economy standing, we began an unprecedented economic run. “You had a 60-year period where every new industry of huge value-added or breakthrough innovation or high risk — whether it was pharma, biotech, software, personal computing or semiconductors — were all totally U.S.based,� Bill Gates said in 2007. The shared prosperity this dominance made possible built the middle class. But the age of U.S. supremacy had to end sometime, and, starting two decades ago, rising powers such as India and China began the reforms that would make them genuine competitors. And wages in wealthier countries were strained. It was at this point in the saga, when research already showed that up to 100 million Americans were living in households earning less than their parents did at a similar age, that the housing and financial bubbles burst. The thing to remember is that these are different kinds of events. The bursting bubbles, and the associated market panic and credit freeze, were heart attacks, to which the authorities responded with emergency measures. But “the fate of the middle class� in a global era is different. It’s more like cancer — a slower yet more profound threat, requiring a fundamental renewal of American competitiveness. And without a galvanizing “emergency.� Broadly speaking, there are two big things we need to do. The first, put well (if not in a catchy slogan) by economist Michael Spence in the Financial Times recently, is “to create capital-intensive jobs that have labor productivity levels consistent with advanced country incomes.� The second big thing is to make sure Americans have the skills to perform these jobs. How are we doing on this? Dismally. For starters, U.S. elites don’t think in terms of a national economic strategy of the kind Spence states so simply. To be sure, the stimulus funded some energy technologies with real promise that are poised to lift productivity dramatically. Such productivity gains can make higher wages sustainable. But we’re not yet close to the needed scale of public- and private-sector effort here. And, in any event, why would firms that could locate work anywhere manufacture these breakthroughs in America? On education, meanwhile, the administration’s agenda, though “bold� by historic standards, isn’t nearly ambitious enough. No politician will talk about the prospect of declining living standards. Business leaders who know what’s afoot abroad talk privately about it all the time. The defining question of our era may be this: What do we do if incremental change isn’t equal to renewing American competitiveness, but our political system isn’t capable of producing more than incremental change? What if waiting for our “Sputnik moment� turns out to be a lot like waiting for Godot? Matt Miller is a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and co-host of public radio’s “Left, Right & Center.� John Stearns’ column will return.

With great ‘can-fare’ WD-40’s retro collector’s item celebrates the Space Age wonder salve By Ph ilip Kennicott The Washington Post

Before there was control-altdelete, there was WD-40, the liquid Space Age remedy for machine-age problems. It was the final hope for the mechanically inept dealE S S A Y ing with a world that was always freezing up, rusting out and breaking down. Its oily goodness would fix balky locks, get bolts spinning on their axes once again and generally remove the crud from just about anything meant to be crud-free. If you didn’t own or couldn’t identify the right tool for the job, there was always WD-40 and a hammer. The WD-40 Co., once known as the Rocket Chemical Co., has reissued “a 1950s style WD-40 Collector’s Can” to promote, in the age of catastrophic oil spills and a national petroleum addiction, a new love for its morethan-half-century-old hydrocarbon wonder. This month, WD40 invites you to buy its nostalgia-themed twin pack, which pairs a reproduction of the old container with a new one. It also wants you to contribute pictures and anecdotes to its new Webbased marketing campaign. Is it possible to bring retrocool social-marketing savvy to a product so old-fashioned even a caveman can abuse it? Can a toxic liquid that feels like some frothy byproduct of making jet fuel or plastic really attract online fans? There must be a joke in here somewhere, a joke that derives its malicious punch line from an anachronistic solution to a contemporary problem, or vice versa. But the folks at WD-40 are perfectly serious. They claim 120,000 members in the WD-40 fan club. And they talk about the deep feeling that “end users” have for the product. “They think about how the product has been passed on through generations in their family,” says Shannon Edwards, associate brand manager for the San Diego-based WD-40. “People get emotional about it: ‘My grandfather taught me how to spray the hinges on the car.’ ” Serious mechanics have kept it handy since the early 1960s, when it grew from a locally marketed San Diego product to na-

WD-40 is offering a twin pack that pairs a 1950s collector’s can with a current model. tionwide availability. And serious mechanics still use it. But for generations it has also been the reliable helpmeet of the home klutz. WD-40 is to bad handymen what cream of mushroom soup is to bad cooks. You start with a little, applied close to the problem. Then you apply more. You swear like a stevedore and bash the offending mechanical object with something heavy. By the time you give up and take it to someone who actually knows how to fix it, whatever you’ve been working on is covered in a light glaze of oily ooze. A glaze that smells sweet, sickly sweet, like the nectar that robotic bees would suck from mechanical flowers. If lawn mowers wore cologne, it would smell like WD-40, the Old Spice of the two-stroke engine. The product’s original purpose was to be part of “a line of rust-prevention solvents and degreasers for use in the aerospace industry,” according to company lore. The formula, originally used on the Atlas missile and supposedly discovered on the 40th attempt, is still proprietary. “The secret sauce is secret,” Edwards says. But she confirms it’s definitely petroleum-based, which makes some of its kitchen

applications, included on the company’s “List of 2000+ Uses” webpage, a bit dubious: “Lubricates meat slicer knob … lubricates tomato slicer handle … lubricates antique waffle iron … frees frozen parts on electric coffee grinder …” The old can, in grim black and yellow that screams better living through chemistry, was based on material found in the company’s “original can archives.” The new can, with the more familiar red, blue and yellow colors, comes with an innovation the company

introduced in 2005, a permanently attached straw meant to prevent the annoying loss of the old thin red straw. WD-40 bridged two eras, the age of terrestrial machines that ran on gasoline or diesel and the fantasy world of rocket science. In the palm of your hand was something made for missiles, but oh so helpful in the garage, too. In her new book, “Another Science Fiction: Advertising the Space Race 1957-1962,” Megan Prelinger looks at the iconography of American commerce during this heady age. One recurring image — the hand reaching out to the moon and beyond — gets to the heart of the American dream of big science and easy fixes. It links the idea of being “handy” with the ambition to slip the old bonds of Earth. Robert Browning, in a great ode to ambition and failure, once wrote: “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp.” It’s a fine sentiment for a painter, or a poet. The “exceeding his grasp” has proved much more problematic in the world of machines, missiles and miles-deep oil wells. WD-40, that wonder of rocket science, was the fantasy of reach marketed to the loser world of no grasp. Its return, this month, in the nostalgic colors of the 1950s, reminds us of that most basic definition of our species: man, the mediocre mechanic.

Marketers burst a comic convention’s boundaries By Brooks Barnes and Michael Cieply

“A lot of these presentations have become just big commercials that we stupidly pay to see.�

New York Times News Service

SAN DIEGO — There was a time when a movie like “Salt,� a spy caper starring Angelina Jolie, got its publicity pop on the festival circuit, maybe even playing on the splashier side of Cannes. Yet here it was on opening day of Comic-Con International, the annual convention for fans of comic books and related TV shows and movies, on Thursday. You get no Croisette, no Hotel du Cap by coming to the San Diego Convention Center, which is plopped between a Marriott and some train tracks. What you do get are 130,000 fans only too happy to blast the Web with movie chatter, and international media coverage second only to that for the Oscars. The showcasing of “Salt,� which opened in theaters Friday, struck many longtime convention-goers as a tipping point. The movie does not fit into any of the categories Comic-Con has traditionally celebrated: horror, fantasy, superheroes, animation, science fiction. Purists have blustered for years that Hollywood was taking over Comic-Con as a marketing platform. Now, it has become a big, blurry film festival for the little guy, with plenty of television — and some comics — thrown in. Jolie’s previous appearances at Comic-Con have been for films that neatly fit its focus — “Be-

Thursday she bluntly highlighted why “Salt� did not. Her previous action movies were “always based in fantasy in some way,� she said. This one is “smart, proper, dramatic.� “Salt� is not the only headscratcher at this year’s ComicCon, which ends today.

Has he ever even been in a science fiction movie?� Davis fumed aloud. There was a lot of obsessiveness on display for the opening day of Comic-Con, which has

been sold out for months. Walt Disney Studios wowed fans of its forthcoming “Tron: Legacy� with eight minutes of 3-D footage. The snippet depicted a character entering the movie’s video-game reality for the first time. “That ‘Tron’ footage was definitely amazing,� said John Juarez, a restaurant manager from El Cajon, Calif., who regularly attends Comic-Con. “A lot of these presentations have become just big commercials that we stupidly pay to see.� Disney took the unusual step of recording a cheering crowd of 6,000 in Hall H, the convention’s main showplace, to incorporate into “Tron: Legacy.� Attendees were told to stand and follow prompts on a screen. (“Stomp! Stomp!�) The result was a kind of pep rally for the film. The director Guillermo del Toro, who reluctantly walked away from “The Hobbit� in May because

of production delays, made a surprise appearance to announce the subject of his next big movie: Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. Disney first tried to turn the attraction into a motion picture in 2003 and did a belly flop. “The Haunted Mansion,� a $90 million comedy starring Eddie Murphy, attracted just $75 million at the North American box office. “We are not returning Eddie Murphy’s calls,� del Toro said to cheers. “Hobbit� fans hoping for some good news — Hollywood has been abuzz over the possibility that a deal is nearly completed for Peter Jackson to take over as director — were out of luck. Staff members of the fan website TheOneRing. net were hard-pressed to come up with positive tidbits. Besides the loss of del Toro, Ian McKellen is tired of waiting around to play Gandalf, and Metro-GoldwynMayer, which owns half the project, is still in financial disarray. In one of the other big presentations on Thursday, DreamWorks Animation and Paramount Pictures promoted “Megamind,� about a supervillain who succumbs to ennui after doing in his archnemesis. Ferrell, who is the voice of the title character in the film, appeared wearing blue face paint and an elaborate Megamind costume. He was in the minority: In contrast to years past, only a smattering of attendees turned out

dressed as their favorite characters, perhaps another sign of Comic-Con’s evolution into a mainstream entity. “As I can see as I look into the hall, not a lot of people in costume,� he said. If Comic-Con is a film festival, though, it still belongs to the people. Those who wanted a glimpse at Robert Rodriguez’s grisly action movie “Machete� were invited to a Thursday night screening of scenes in a parking lot, after a party with free tacos, tequila and beer (“with this flier, while supplies last�).

Senate Republicans have found common cause with a few key Democratic allies — including Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, who is in a tough re-election battle. Lincoln and Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., have introduced a measure to further ease the estate tax, which brought in $14 billion last year. They would like to offset some of that lost revenue but have yet to identify how. Their position stands in marked contrast to the fight over unemployment benefits. On that question, most Republicans have demanded budget cuts to offset the full $33.9 billion cost of the jobless aid. On Thursday, President Barack Obama signed into law a restoration of benefits for people who have been out of work for six months or more. Congress approved the measure earlier in the day. The move ended an interruption that cut off payments averaging about $300 a week to 2.5 million people who have been unable to find work in the after-

math of the nation’s long and deep recession. “There’s a difference between spending and taxes,� said Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the No. 3 Republican in the Senate. “If you’re going to spend more, you have to have a revenue source or you run up the debt,� he said. Reducing taxes, on the other hand, “basically reduces the amount of revenue we have to spend, and we should reduce spending by an equal amount.�

Launching the great tax-break debate This conversation is a prelude to a broader debate unfolding about the future of other Bush tax breaks that expire by year’s end. Obama has promised to keep only those for families making less than $250,000 annually. Kyl and Lincoln, meanwhile, are pushing for a vote on their measure. Some type of inheritance tax has been around since the early days of the nation. The tax has

been used primarily to finance wars, including the Civil War, until a more permanent version of the tax was established in 1916, according to the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. The 2001 reduction in the estate tax came at a time that seems unrecognizable today, those early years of the Bush administration when the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not yet fully under way and the government ran budget surpluses. But during a wobbly economic recovery, the attempt to soften a blow to the wealthy may prove a tough sell. Among tax planners, the whole issue has lent itself to a measure of gallows humor. When asked how Congress will resolve the issue, Steve Hartnett, of the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys in San Diego, says he pulls a Magic 8-Ball from his desk, turns it over and declares: “Hmm. ‘Uncertain.’� The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The 2010 lapse is a quirk of tax law and Washington politics. Under then-President George W. Bush, the estate tax rate was lowered in 2001 from 55 percent to 45 percent, and the amount an individual can pass on without incurring the tax went from $1 million to $3.5 million. When it was approved, the tax was scheduled to expire at the end of 2009, then resume in 2011 at its previous, higher, rate. Lawmakers deadlocked, and never agreed on new legislation. So heirs have received a brief reprieve before the tax roars back to life next year, and at levels even higher than had been in place before the Bush tax cuts. Republicans have long held that tax cutting is the best way to stimulate the economy. They believe the estate tax — which they derisively call the “death tax� — is particularly onerous on small and family-run businesses.

The recent death of Yankees owner George Steinbrenner renewed focus on this year’s gap in the estate tax. At least three other American billionaires have died this year and, including Steinbrenner, the four estates saved an estimated $6 billion in taxes that would be due when the estate tax returns next year.

Continued from G1 “It is embarrassing that we have a zero estate tax for the wealthiest Americans at this point,� railed Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., recently on the Senate floor. “We have about 400 billionaires in America. I believe four of them have died in this year,� Dorgan said. “How about an estate tax for estates worth billions of dollars?� Other deceased billionaires, cited by Forbes magazine, include California real estate developer Walter Shorenstein, Houston oil man Dan Duncan and a member of the Minnesota family that founded agricultural giant Cargill Inc.

C OV ER S T OR I ES “In these economic times, the marketplace for a specific themed community — whether it’s ... Lord of the Rings or Star Wars or anything — I think it’s just difficult to pull it off.� — A.J. Kitt, Castle Advisers LLC St.

Continued from G1 “Building something in a radically different design style is only going to devalue the property,� said Kitt, a former Olympic skier. But “you don’t have to have a thatched roof on your house to have a house there.� That is, if someone buys one of the remaining six single-family home lots or eight townhome lots. Two of the lots are listed for $67,000 each through Steve Scott Realtors. Though Castle Advisers had plans to build some of the town homes by this spring, the plans were canceled because of the economy, Kitt said. He said the company would rather be free and clear of any bank loans on Forest Creek as well as its other development, Tuscany Pines in northeast Bend. As the housing market tanked in 2008, developments like The Shire gained national recognition. In May 2009, The Oregonian characterized the development as “a project that symbolized the extremes of Bend’s legendary boom.� Kitt said he doesn’t think The Shire was unwarranted. He said there is a marketplace even for niche developments, more so in better economic times. “In these economic times, the marketplace for a specific themed community — whether it’s Tolkien or Lord of the Rings or Star Wars or anything — I think it’s just difficult to pull it off,� Kitt said. Hanson is a fan of The Lord of the Rings, the epic fantasy world on which The Shire’s design is based, but it had nothing to do with the decision to purchase the home, he said. Hanson said the home’s design is energy-efficient. Heat costs in his new 3,200square-foot home are less than his previous home, which was 900 square feet smaller. It also reminds him of the church he was married in, which his grandfather built, in Washington.

Behind Hanson’s Forest Creek home, known as Butterfly Cottage and located on Ring Bearer Court, is shared space including an amphitheater, a trout pond and a “secret door� — a storage shed that looks a hobbit hole. But little if anything in the interior of Hanson’s house looks like something from “The Lord of the Rings.� Like Kitt, Hanson said he thinks there’s a time and a place for developments like The Shire. He said it makes sense the developers would delay further construction in this down market. “Currently, it’s great, because we don’t have any really close neighbors,� Hanson said, “so it’s like we have acreage.� Steckler, the first buyer at The Shire, said he thinks the development was purely a dream that led the McDonalds and Ron Meyers, another early shareholder in the project, to build the homes, not necessarily a desire to make money in the booming housing industry. The Shire offered people “a chance to go to, not really a fantasyland, but for people to embrace their youth,� said Steckler. “The bubble offered a unique chance to do something really different.� David Holley can be reached at 541-383-0323 or at

Olive oil Continued from G1 And according to a trade group, consumers annually spend about $720 million on the stuff at supermarkets. But a lack of strict standards means the U.S. is awash in lowquality, adulterated and even dangerous oils that have made some consumers ill, according to experts. Connecticut investigators tested dozens of bottles of olive oil from store shelves a few years ago after local producers and consumers complained that there was something fishy — or perhaps nutty — going on. They were right. “People were getting sick and thinking, ‘It must be the poultry that I fried up in the olive oil last night,’ or that it was a type of bread that had been exposed to nuts in the bakery,� said Jerry Farrell Jr., commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection. Early this year, his team returned to the market aisles after hearing rumbles of more sly shortcuts. “It took a while for people to identify that the oil itself is the thing that was making them sick,� Farrell said. Many industry officials agree that “extra virgin� olive oil is essentially oil that is cold-processed to prevent degradation of aromatic compounds and has higher levels of healthy fats and antioxidants. It also has relatively low acidity levels, 0.8 grams per 100 grams or less, according to the International Olive Council in Madrid, whose product standards the USDA rules are generally based upon. Federal law bars a company from not disclosing on the label that it is selling a blend of oils. But the practice of labeling lower-quality olive oil as top-end — and charging a premium for it — is technically legal in the U.S. The reason is simple: There are no federal rules that define what is — or is not — “virgin� or “extra virgin� olive oil, said Vito Polito, professor of plant sciences at the University of California-Davis and co-chairman of the school’s Olive Center, a research group.

“A lot of the stores didn’t care what was in the bottles,� says Antoinette Addison, whose Figueroa Farms, based in California’s Santa Ynez Valley, has struggled to break even. “All they cared about was the fact that the label said ‘extra virgin.’� As a result, Polito said, “the U.S. has been a dumping ground for cheap olive oil for years.� Most olive oil consumed in the United States is imported from nations including Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. California, which dominates the domestic industry, produced 850,000 gallons of olive oil worth about $17 million during the 2009-10 season. Although it’s hardly the worst oil crisis facing the U.S. at present, the purity issue remains a serious one. People with health concerns or allergies often use olive oil for cooking. And extra virgin oil is marketed as a premium consum-

er product, and routinely commands an equally prime price: At the Pavilions grocery store in Seal Beach, Calif., a 750 milliliter bottle of Bertolli’s extra virgin olive oil cost $14.29, while the same size bottle of Bertolli’s extra light olive oil cost $7.99. Making extra virgin oil can be labor-intensive, with some producers hand-picking the olives while others manually bottle the oil. Lower quality oils, or adulterated oils, are cheaper to produce. Competition from those who use unsavory practices has become a significant problem for producers such as Antoinette and

Shawn Addison. The California couple first planted olive trees in the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley in 2000 and dreamed of transforming their 25-acre farm into a high-end producer of artisanal oils. But when the couple met with grocers and food retailers, they sensed trouble. A 375-milliliter bottle of their Organic Estate Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil sells for $16.95. Competitors sold theirs for $9.99 or less. A spokesman for the Food and Drug Administration, which oversees most food-label accuracy issues, said the agency does not regularly test olive oils for adulteration, and that it relies on tips about problems from the public, trade groups and others. Some state lawmakers also are trying to cork the problem. California and Oregon, like Connecticut, have rolled out their own state regulations. (The California regulation established definitions for various grades of olive oil; it requires such oils sold in the state to be labeled according to international standards.) (541) 647-1646

Little interest in Oregon loan program to add jobs The Associated Press SALEM — Nearly two months after it was launched, a lending program created by Oregon lawmakers to help companies add workers has resulted in just two new jobs. The BOOST program was launched June 1 with authority to lend up to $4 million to businesses that can create new permanent full-time jobs in Oregon. The program, which stands for Building Opportunities for Oregon Small Business Today, also can issue $1 million in total grants. But since it began, only four companies have applied for grants and none has been approved. Two businesses have applied for loans. One of them, a Medford wine-making company, says its $85,000 loan has led to two jobs. A spokesman for the state agency administering the loan and grant program said many other companies have made inquiries. “I would assume they either decide they don’t want to go through with the application or they don’t meet enough of the qualifications,� said Marc Zolton, spokesman for the state business devel-

opment department. The $5 million for BOOST loans and grants comes from the projected revenue increase anticipated from the state’s more aggressive tax collections. The loan program provides up to $150,000 per applicant for up to four years. To qualify, applicants must have fewer than 100 employees and must compete nationally or internationally for customers. They also must demonstrate an ability to create or retain jobs with the money they borrow and use for a variety of operating expenses. Small-business advocate Jan Meekcoms said BOOST isn’t generating a lot of interest because it doesn’t meet critical needs of many businesses. Meekcoms, Oregon director for the National Federation of Independent Business, said her organization conducted a survey of concerns and found that state help to pay for new employees or equipment was not a top priority. “The critical issue is a lack of customers — the need for more demand for goods and services,� she said.

S D  Range-roving with deep pockets


This jack does all the work

By Warren Brown Special to The Washington Post

India’s Tata Motors is keenly aware that no one needs an $80,000 sport utility vehicle that gets 14 miles per gallon and requires premium gasoline, which is why Tata has gone out of its way to make prospective buyers want it. What we’re discussing here is an object of pure lust, the 2010 edition of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged with options, possibly the most luxurious of fullR E V I E W size SUVs. Tata Motors, part of a Mumbai-based multinational that acquired Land Rover from Ford Motor in 2008, makes no pretense that the vehicle is meant for anything other than enjoyment and prestige. This is the SUV as ceremonial elephant. Step in. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged smells rich. It is the aroma of Windsor premium leather and straight-grain walnut — leather on the instrument panel and on the seats with contrast stitching; matte-finished wood that gives the impression the floormounted center console and other interior elements were carved from the soul of a walnut tree. Under its tutelage, Ford emphasized the technical prowess of the Range Rover line. Buttons and dials were all over the instrument panel and center console. The feeling was more aircraft flight deck than luxury coach. Tata has changed that, giving the Sport Supercharged fewer buttons with greater ease of use. It matters not that underneath its considerable finery, the Sport Supercharged remains a truck with a hydro-formed, box-steel ladder-frame. (Tutorial: Hydro-forming, widely used in the automobile industry, employs high-pressure hydraulic fluid in the shaping and strengthening of complex pieces of malleable metals.) So, yes, the new Range Rover Sport Supercharged remains tough. It can acquit itself in offroad travel. But who, in his or her right mind, would attempt such a thing? It would be akin to planning an evening at a landfill in black tie or gown.

Land Rover’s 2011 Range Rover Sport Supercharged looks and feels rich but in terms of utility, there is nothing in the Sport Supercharged that trumps many lessexpensive full-size sport utility vehicles.

New Car News

Virtually all automobiles today come with some type of spare tire and a jacking device. Both items, designed for emergency use only, are rarely touched until a flat forces you to the side of the road. You don’t have to rely on a manufacturer’s frail jack, and you don’t even have to work hard if you prepare for a tirechanging emergency by getting a power jack. The Electric Jack, a sturdy power-operated jack capable of raising an automobile weighing one tons, consists of a compact electric motor plus the jack mechanical housing. Plug it into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket via a 14 foot cord and you’ll use the car battery’s energy to hoist the car. And the remote control unit allows you to stand back and operate the jack by pushing a button. Find the Electric Jack as item #1JA312249 for $86.99 at J.C. Whitney Co., 1-866-5295530, or on the web at www.

2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Base price: $73,345 As tested: $80,495 Type: Construction is integrated body frame using hydro-formed steel pieces. Frame is ladder type with welded steel sides. The front-engine, four-wheel-drive Range Rover Sport has four side doors and a rear hatch. It is available as the HSE and the Supercharged model. Engine: 5-liter, 32-valve supercharged V-8 (510 horsepower, 461 footpounds of torque), mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Mileage: 12 mpg city, 17 mpg highway. Bring lots of money — and avoid city traffic. This thing swills fuel at the real-world combined rate of 13 mpg.

I was tempted. Remodeling of the minor sort continues apace on our Virginia house. Such endeavors yield lots of trash — and much aging junk that never should have been bought in the first place. I was planning to load the Range Rover for several runs to the local landfill. But I couldn’t bring myself to do it. The vehicle was too pretty, too precious. Also, it was less accommodating for dirty duty than, say, a GMC Yukon SLT, available for roughly $30,000 less than the Range Rover Sport Supercharged. The Yukon has a maximum 109 cubic feet of cargo space. The Range Rover gives you a maxi-

mum of 71 cubic feet, which means it is far more “sport” than “utility.” But that is exactly the point, which raises the question: How do you make a ceremonial elephant dance? In the case of the Range Rover Sport Supercharged, carrying a factory weight of 5,816 pounds, you give it a big V-8 engine and a sophisticated suspension (four-wheel independent, double wishbone front-rear, ride control and height adjustable) designed to make it appear nimble. This almost works. The supercharged 5-liter, 32-valve V-8 (510 horsepower, 461 foot-pounds of torque) installed in the Range Rover Sport (thus the “Supercharged” moniker for this one) is an un-

doubtedly robust engine. It produces such thrust you almost have to warn passengers before tapping the accelerator. The thing is fast. It’s not nimble. It remains a truck, and trucks, by genetics and design, remain the elephants of the vehicle world. Real-world experience says you don’t want to drive the Range Rover Sport Supercharged in congested, contentious urban traffic. It’s still too big, too heavy and too clumsy to find true happiness in that sort of outing. Nor would you, or should you, attempt to take tight curves at high speeds in this one. The Sport Supercharged comes admirably equipped with compensatory electronics — patented “Allterrain Dynamic Stability Control,” cornering brake control, and emergency braking assistance. But not one of them is engineered to overcome the laws of physics.

it gives most of them a run for the money in the field of sport. Ride, acceleration and handling: Ride and acceleration are excellent, as is handling on long stretches with gentle curves. City handling is borderline horrendous. Caution is advised in tight curves. Head-turning quotient: Simply sumptuous. Looks and feels rich. Capacities: There is comfortable seating for four adults. A fifth person can be squeezed into the center of the rear seat for short trips. Maximum cargo capacity is 71 cubic feet. Maximum payload, the weight of what can be carried onboard, is 1,219 pounds. The Range Rover Sport Supercharged can be equipped to carry a trailer weighing 7,716 pounds. The fuel tank holds 23.3 gallons of gasoline (premium required). Safety: Standard equipment includes front and rear ventilated disc brakes, electronic stability and traction control, four-wheel anti-lock protection, emergency braking assistance, side and head air bags, xenon high-intensitydischarge headlights, adaptive (swivels in turns) headlights, and front and rear proximity warning parking sensors.

The bottom line In terms of utility, there is nothing in the Range Rover Sport Supercharged that trumps many less-expensive full-size sport utility vehicles. But it beats all of them in the matter of luxury, and

Differential and different-size tires With AWD, all 4 tires must be the same By Paul Brand (Minneapolis) Star Tribune


the next time the brakes are applied, they almost always function normally. I realize that it’s a safety issue — any ideas for a possible remedy? You’re describing a loss of vacuum power assist available to the brake master cylinder. It’s possible that a lack of engine vacuum due to restrictions in the air intake or exhaust systems or some other engine performance problem is the cause. Otherwise, look for a vacuum leak in the vacuum booster or its check valve. To check this, with the engine fully warmed up and idling, shut off the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system completely, then shut off the engine. After the engine stops, there should be enough residual vacuum in the booster to allow several brake applications before the pedal gets “rock-hard.”

With one tire significantly larger or smaller, the differential on that end of the vehicle will think the vehicle is turning while the rest of the drivetrain thinks the vehicle is traveling straight. This can put enormous stress on expensive components. 4WD. If the noise is still there once all the tires are the same diameter and your vehicle has automatic 4WD, see if the noise goes away when locked into 2WD. If so, the front differential warrants a closer inspection.


I have a ’99 Chevy Metro that has exhibited a chronic problem since Day One. After being driven for approximately 30 minutes, it seems to lose brake boost. The pedal goes rock-hard. The brakes continue to function, but considerably more force is required on the pedal to slow the car. The weird part of this malady is that


I have a 2003 Anniversary Edition Corvette with less than 10,000 miles. Is it time for a coolant and transmission flush? I think so. Based on age, both services are already overdue. And since this is probably your dream-of-a-lifetime car, why worry? Get ’er done.

Lose A Pound A Day!

Private, vintage, ocean front getaway

I bought my 2004 Suburban new, and it now has 100,000 miles on it. There is a howling in the front axle which I have been told is the front differential assembly. One garage wishes to replace this assembly for about $2,000. Another garage says the problem is that my one front tire is new and has a larger circumference than the rear tire matching it. He says all four tires have to be exactly the same circumference before the differential assembly can be replaced. This sounds strange to me; what say you? The second garage is correct. With any four-wheelor all-wheel-drive vehicle, it is critical for all four tires to be the same size and diameter. With one tire significantly larger or smaller, the differential on that end of the vehicle will think the vehicle is turning — one wheel rotating faster or slower than the other — while the rest of the drivetrain thinks the vehicle is traveling straight with all wheels rotating at the same speed. This can put enormous mechanical stress on driveline components and lead to premature failure of expensive components. Start by inflating all tires to the same air pressure — 35 pounds per square inch works well — then measure each tire. Put a chalk mark on the tire and the pavement at the bottom center of the tread contact patch, then roll the vehicle forward exactly one tire revolution and mark the pavement again. Measure the distance between each chalk mark with a tape measure. All four tires should be very close — a difference of a half-inch or less in circumference. You didn’t mention whether your vehicle is equipped with full-time AWD or automatic

Hearing Questionaire This short checklist will help you determine whether you are experiencing specific hearing problems. The questions relate to everyday listening situations where many people—even those with only minor hearing losses—could experience difficulties hearing clearly. Please take your time to answer the questions, perhaps together with a close friend or family member who might have commented on your hearing ability. Questions



• When watching television with others, do you need to set the volume higher than they would to hear what is being said? • Do you often need to ask people to repeat what they have said? • Do you often feel that other people are ‘mumbling’ or speaking unclearly? • Do you often have trouble understanding a conversation when there is background noise or other people are talking at the same time? • Have your family members/colleagues/friends asked you whether you have a hearing problem? • Do you avoid parties and social events because there is too much noise or you can’t hear what people are saying? • During conversations in a car, a restaurant, or another noisy place, do you often misunderstand what is being said? • Do you feel stressed or tired when you have had to talk or listen for long periods? • Do you need to sit close to the speakers at meetings, religious services, or at the dinner table in order to understand? • Do you often experience problems hearing and understanding what other people are saying to you when you do not have eye contact?
