Wooded homesites to get $3M boost for fire defense By Kate Ramsayer
Voter registration As local campaigns ramp up for the November election, voters in Central Oregon are following several statewide trends. Voters are increasingly registering with the Independent Party, although it remains small. The Democratic Party has also lost many voters. Below is a look at August voter registration by party, followed by the percentage of change since January. Party

A $3 million federal grant to help protect homes from wildfires in Deschutes, Crook and Klamath counties will go toward getting rid of highly flammable vegetation on between 3,000 and 5,000 acres of private land. And it will hopefully help prevent events like the Fourmile Canyon Fire outside of Boulder, Colo., which has already burned more than 170 structures, said Joe Stutler, Deschutes County forester. Central Oregon, like the area around Boulder, has areas where homes are in or near forested areas and lack “defensible space,” or spaces that are clear of brush and allow firefighters to tackle burns. “I can think of a dozen of those communities, neighborhoods that we’ve got in Deschutes County, Crook County and Klamath,” Stutler said. “The 170 homes in Boulder could be 170 homes in Deschutes County, easily.” With the new grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Program, counties will be able to hire contractors to cut down small trees that can lead to bigger fires, get rid of low-hanging tree limbs, mow down brush and more near homes and in vacant lots in atrisk neighborhoods, he said. In some neighborhoods, programs will show residents how to do the work in their own yards, and then contractors will come by to pick up the cut trees and branches. See Wildfire / A4

Independent Party gains across region Numbers show major-party discontent, founder says By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin
Oregon’s Independent Party is gaining members in Central Oregon, where a higher percentage of voters have registered with the party than the statewide average, according to voter data from January through August. The region’s slightly larger portion of Independent Party members might be due to people moving to the area, according to one of the party’s founders, Portland attorney Dan Meek. “You’ve got more movement of people
from other areas to Bend and Prineville and other areas,” Meek said. Members of the Independent Party, Oregon’s largest minor political party, accounted for 2.8 percent of the 2,051,408 registered voters statewide in August. By comparison, the party accounted for 3.5 percent of the 11,378 registered voters in Crook County, 3.7 percent of the 9,439 registered voters in Jefferson County and 3.9 percent of the 89,162 registered voters in Deschutes County, according to an analysis of state voter data.

Yoga outside, 300 strong
‘Made in Italy’ ... via Chinese labor, goods Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin
By Rachel Donadio New York Times News Service
PRATO, Italy — Over the years, Italy learned the difficult lesson that it could no longer compete with China on price. And so, its business class dreamed, Italy would sell quality, not quantity. For centuries, this walled medieval city just outside of Florence has produced some of the world’s finest fabrics, becoming a powerhouse for “Made in Italy” chic. And then, China came here. Chinese laborers, first a few immigrants, then tens of thousands, began settling in Prato in the late 1980s. They transformed the textile hub into a low-end garment manufacturing capital — enriching many, stoking resentment and prompting recent crackdowns that in turn have brought cries of bigotry and hypocrisy.

Cartel’s corrupt U.S. officer shows reach By Ceci Connolly
Martha Garnica, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection worker, was arrested in November 2009 for helping a drug cartel breach the border.
The Washington Post
EL PASO, Texas — She lived a double life. At the border crossing, she was Agent Garnica, a veteran law enforcement officer. In the shadows, she was “La Estrella,” the star, a brassy looker who helped drug cartels make a mockery of the U.S. border. Martha Garnica devised secret codes, passed stacks of cash through car windows and sketched out a map for smugglers to safely haul drugs and undocumented workers across the border. For that she was richly rewarded; she lived in a spacious house with a built-in pool, owned two Hummers and vacationed in Europe. See Border / A5

In retirement debate, what of hard labor? By John Leland New York Times News Service
At the Cooper Tire plant in Findlay, Ohio, Jack Hartley, who is 58, works a 12-hour shift assembling tires: pulling rubber over a drum, cutting the material, lifting the half-finished tire, which weighs 10 to 20 pounds, and throwing it onto a rack. Hartley performs these steps nearly 30 times an hour. “The pain started about the time I was 50,” he said. “Dessert with lunch is ibuprofen.” See Retirement / A4

So you want to buy a smart phone? After enduring the taunting of your friends, your contract is finally up on your creaky 3-year-old not-so-smart phone. The device doesn’t do e-mail or the Web, and it can’t find your position on a map. There is only one problem. Now that you have decided to step into 2007, the choices baffle you. The mobile phone industry has changed enormously since you last shopped. There are several new companies making devices, the phones have an alphabet soup of hardware options, and they run software that can do all kinds of amazing things. For some shoppers, though, the powers of modern smart phones may be overkill. Perhaps you would like to occasionally send e-mail or get access to the Web from your phone, but you don’t really care about playing games or editing movies. For you, there is an entrylevel smart phone, a phone that will let you do some of the fantastic things your pals keep bragging about, but that won’t cost too much or require a college course in using it.

Motorola Backflip runs on Google’s Android, and though it’s a bit bulky in your pocket, Web surfing and e-mail is quite handy.
Cheaper than $100 For the last few weeks, I have been testing several phones from the four major carriers — AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and TMobile. Although there is no official definition for what makes a phone “smart,” the industry does have a few generally recognized criteria. A smart phone is usually capable of getting access to your e-mail. It can display Web pages in a way that doesn’t distort them too much, and it can connect to the Internet using a cellular data connection (known as 3G) or your home wireless system (Wi-Fi). I defined “entry level” as any smart phone that costs less than $100 when you sign up for a new contract. These parameters did, of course, exclude the kings of the smart phone market — Apple’s iPhone 4, Droid 2 from Motorola and the HTC EVO 4G. But you will be surprised by what you can get for not much money upfront. A few of the best phones that I looked at cost less than $50, and some were completely free with a new contract.
Data plans But that is just the price of the phone. When you step into the world of smart phones, the real sticker shock comes on your monthly bill. Most carriers require you to sign up for a data plan when you buy a phone that provides access to the Internet. These can add $15 to $30 a month over what you are used to paying for your dumb phone. Of the four carriers, AT&T’s smart phone plan is the most affordable. For $54.99 a month, AT&T will give you 450 minutes of voice calls and 200 megabytes of data usage a month. (Some observers have grumbled at AT&T’s limit on data usage, but for entry-level users, 200 megabytes should be more than enough.) By comparison, Verizon’s cheapest plan, which includes 450 minutes of voice calls and unlimited data, costs $69.98 a month. Sprint’s unlimited data, 450-minute plan is $69.99. T-Mobile’s lowest-priced data plan — 500 minutes of voice, unlimited data — is $79.99 with a two-year contract. Now let’s talk about the phones themselves. The first major decision you have to make concerns the keyboard. Do you want a touch-screen keypad, as on the iPhone, or do you want a physical keyboard with push-button keys? There are trade-offs on both sides. An onscreen keyboard lets you have a bigger screen on a thinner, sleeker device, while a hard keyboard gives you tactile
The Palm Pre is a budget-minded option to consider when purchasing a smart phone.
Another low-price phone to consider is Palm’s Pre, which was released last year to great acclaim as a potential “iPhone killer.” The Pre did nothing of the sort, but it remains a lovely phone to use. feedback as you type. Although there are strong feelings on the question, your best bet is to try both keypad styles at the store. The one you prefer will usually be a matter of taste. It most likely will depend on your own sense of coordination and the size of your fingers.
Last year’s iPhone If you want a touch keyboard, the best device you can buy for less than $100 is the iPhone 3GS. That is last year’s iPhone model, which Apple sells for $99 with a two-year contract, and which offers nearly every feature available in the new iPhone 4. It is also one of the simplest phones on the market to learn to use. And if you do decide to venture into the wide world of add-on apps, there is no better phone.
If $99 is too steep, I suggest the LG Ally, from Verizon, or the AT&T Motorola Backflip, each of which sells for $49.99 with a contract. These phones run on Google’s Android operating system, but you don’t need to know what that means in order to use them. Though neither is a looker — they are a bit bulky in your pocket — and they are noticeably slower than more expensive phones, I found each quite handy for Web surfing and e-mail. They both have well-designed keyboards. Another low-price phone to consider is Palm’s Pre, which was released last year to great acclaim as a potential “iPhone killer.” The Pre did nothing of the sort, but it remains a lovely phone to use — and now you can get an updated version, the Pre Plus. It is just $29.99 from Verizon. It is unclear how long Palm will continue to make the Pre Plus (the company is undergoing a merger with Hewlett-Packard) so if you admired the Palm last year, now is a good time to snap it up. (The Pre’s underpowered little brother, the Palm Pixi Plus, sells for even less. Both Verizon and AT&T offer it free with a contract.)
Other choices There are also some options on the nation’s two smaller carriers, Sprint and T-Mobile. TMobile has introduced the Motorola Charm, a square Android phone that will sell for $74.99 with a contract. I found the phone’s unusual shape made for more difficult typing but, other than that, it was a solid phone. So, too, was the Samsung Intercept, a $99.99 Android phone offered by Sprint. If you have heard about Apple’s troubles with its new iPhone, you might have one question about inexpensive smart phones. Forget the bells and whistles, how well do they work as phones? Unfortunately, that is not a question I can shed much light on. Your call quality will depend greatly on your geography and the specific location of cell towers in the places you frequent most. In other words, it is hard to know how well your phone will make calls before you actually try it. But remember that all major carriers offer a 30-day grace period on your contract. If you notice your phone acting up in that period, take it back. At the least, a smart phone should be smart enough to let you make calls.

As high-res hits smaller screens, benefits are lost By Nathan Olivarez-Giles
MONDAY TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY
LOS ANGELES — Resolutions of 1080p, the maximum image resolution for highdefinition television, used to be found only on big-screen models with price tags in the thousands. But 1080p resolution has become so common that it’s being offered on models in the low 20-inch range, with prices down to $300. “It has been a big trend over the last year,” said Paul Gagnon, an analyst with Display Search. “You used to not see any sub-32-inch sets offered with 1080p resolution. Now, about a third of them are.” That sounds great for TV watchers on a budget or with limited space for a set. But there’s a catch: On a smaller screen, the benefits of this resolution are minuscule. “To see 1,080 vertical lines of resolution, you need at least a TV of about 46 inches to fully see it,” said Gary Merson, editor of HDGuru.com. “At 26 inches, forget it; you won’t tell the difference.” Increased availability of smaller sets with 1080p displays can’t be attributed solely to hype. In part, it happened because of who was making the televisions. TV manufacturers such as ViewSonic Corp., based in
Walnut, Calif., and Hannspree, based in Taiwan, used to be known primarily for their computer monitors. And 1080p does make sense, visually, for monitors. “It’s really easy to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p when you’re on a computer, because text and graphics have lots of hard edges,” said Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies Corp. “If you’re hooking it up to a computer, no ifs, ands or buts, get your 1080p.” Making the leap into TVs was not difficult for these manufacturers. “If you’re already making computer monitors, adding a TV tuner isn’t very expensive.” Westinghouse Digital Electronics, based in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., is going after young consumers who are used to thinking of a TV as a multipurpose device. “Many people nowadays, especially at the smaller screen sizes like 26 inches, are using displays as both a TV, but also a computer monitor and a display for video game consoles,” said Rey Roque, Westinghouse’s vice president of marketing. “And the technology now is affordable enough that we can offer features like 1080p across our line,” he said. “That just wasn’t affordable a few years ago.”
Prepaid phones gain ground as users seek to lower bills By Bridget Carey McClatchy-Tribune News Service
MIAMI — Sales have never been better for MetroPCS. The prepaid cell phone retailer broke records in the first and second quarter of 2010 with new subscribers to its no-contract, monthly flat-rate mobile service. Once aimed at customers with poor credit or those who rarely used a cell phone, prepaid phones increasingly are drawing customers angered by mobile bills of $100 per month, said Steve Roberts, regional vice president of sales and distribution of MetroPCS’s Miami office. Some parents are even buying prepaid phones to teach their teens to limit costs. What’s keeping those customers with MetroPCS and similar services are phones common in the marketplace but new to prepaid customers: feature-rich smart phones. To keep up with smart phone demand, MetroPCS added a second BlackBerry phone to offerings this summer. A phone that runs on Google’s Android operating system is “on our road map,” Roberts said. The company will be adding 4G wireless speeds to Florida by the end of the year. Competitor Boost Mobile

just launched its first touchscreen smart phone and first Android smart phone — the No. 1 selling smart phone operating system in the U.S. All major cell phone carriers also offer prepaid plans and phones. Service giant Sprint has seen 60 percent of its new customers this year choose a nocontract option, such as Boost or Virgin Mobile — both of which it sells. “The economy was a catalyst for people to look at no-contract options, and people adopted it and are happy,” said Neil Lindsay, chief marketing officer for Sprint Prepaid. Even among major service providers, prepaid options have become more popular. T-Mobile has seen its prepaid customers double since 2006, and spokesman Graham Crow said more customers are using prepaid as a way to test-drive a bill.

T S Congress signals caution in run-up to the election By Jim Abrams WASHINGTON — Congress returns this week with embattled Democrats torn between trying to show they have the economic answers and fearing the further wrath of voters over new government programs. It appears the fears will win out. The inbox is overflowing as lawmakers end their summer recess and undertake four weeks of writing and trying to pass bills before leaving town ahead of the Nov. 2 election: Bush-era tax cuts are set to expire at year’s end; annual spending bills await action; and President Barack Obama has just come out with a new plan to stimulate the economy through tax credits, breaks for business investment and public works projects. But progress on any of those before the election is doubtful. Majority Democrats are returning to Washington after a month of listening to voters angry over government spending. Republicans are dead-set against White House initiatives. “It will be difficult to get a very broad agenda through,” said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. Some issues probably will fall back into a lame-duck session after the election. Even then, Republicans won’t be raring to cooperate, particularly if they regain control of the House or Senate. Democrats insist they’ll act before the end of the year to extend the middle-class tax cuts pushed through by President George W. Bush. And if Congress does nothing? Then a family in the $50,000-$75,000 income range would face an extra $1,126 in taxes next year. Obama and most Democrats want the extensions to apply only to individuals with annual incomes of less than $200,000, or joint filers earning less than $250,000. Continuing those tax cuts would add $3.1 trillion to the national debt over the next decade. The debt would rise by an additional $700 billion if tax cuts for the richest people are also extended. Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., says
Boehner says he’d compromise on tax cut bill WASHINGTON — The House Republican leader, John Boehner, on Sunday opened the door to a compromise on the contentious issue of the Bush-era tax cuts, saying he would vote to maintain lower rates for families earning less than $250,000, even if President Barack Obama and Democrats insisted on ending the cuts for wealthier Americans. With Congress returning to Washington this week, Boehner’s decision likely reframes both the final intense weeks on Capitol Hill before the elections and the fall campaign, in which embattled Democrats have planned to paint Republicans as obstructionists favoring the rich over the middle class. Obama in recent days has lambasted congressional Republicans — at times singling out Boehner by name — for threatening to block an extension of the tax cuts for more than 97 percent of Americans to preserve lower rates for “millionaires.” And Democratic party leaders had been planning to use the tax fight to help rally their base. “If the only option I have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, I’ll vote for them,” Boehner said in an interview on “Face the Nation” on CBS, during which the host, Bob Schieffer, pointedly asked if Republicans would hold the tax breaks for most Americans “hostage” to keep the lower rates for the wealthy. — New York Times News Service
he expects the Senate to get into “serious debate” on the Bush tax cuts, but he would not speculate on the chances for an agreement.

Taylor Swift absolved Kanye West of last year’s onstage sin with one somber song, and West, also in song, beat himself up once again over his misbehavior. The Swift-West drama took center stage at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, with both superstars either addressing or dancing around the incident that won’t die. Both dramatic performances delivered on pre-show hype of a Kanye-Taylor sequel and overshadowed the evening’s other moments, including Lady Gaga’s eight-win sweep. Among her awards was video of the year for “Bad Romance.” The stage for both songs was set last year, when West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech, saying her trophy should have gone to Beyonce. The incident left Swift with hurt feelings, but West was the one who was seriously damaged, as intense backlash made him Mr. Unpopularity. While West didn’t address the trophy-gate incident directly onstage, he rapped and sang a song that mocked the boorish behavior that has upstaged his music: “I always find something wrong; you’ve been putting up with my (expletive) for too long,” he said, before launching into an unprintable chorus, which included the line: “Let’s have a toast to scumbags.”

FCC likely to relax unlicensed airwaves New York Times News Service WASHINGTON — When the Federal Communications Commission first approved the use of unlicensed bands of the airwaves decades ago, it began a revolution in consumer electronics — first in television remote controls and garage door openers, then in baby monitors and cordless phones, and most recently in wireless computer networks. This month, the FCC is likely to approve what could be an even bigger expansion of the unlicensed airwaves, opening the door to supercharged Wi-Fi networks that will do away with the need to find a wireless hot spot and will provide the scaffolding for new applications that are not yet imagined. “We know what the first kind of deployments will be,” said Julius Genachowski, chairman of the FCC, in an interview, citing wireless broadband networks that can cover entire university or corporate campuses, for example — what is referred to in the industry as “Wi-Fi on steroids.” The stronger, faster networks will extend broadband signals to bypassed rural areas and allow for smart electric grids, remote health monitoring and, for consumers, wireless Internet without those annoying dead zones. “But this will also be a platform for innovators and entrepreneurs,” Genachowski said. “There is every chance of this leading to the development of one or more billion-dollar industries.” Just as broadband-ready smart phones could hardly be imagined in 1938, when the FCC first approved the use of unlicensed radio waves, or even in 1985, when it issued the rules that led to Wi-Fi, the eventual consumer products that will use the new airwaves are all but unknown.

Regulators back new bank rules BASEL, Switzerland — The world’s top bank regulators agreed Sunday on far-reaching new rules intended to strengthen the global banking industry and shield it against future financial disasters. The new requirements more than tripled the amount of capital banks must hold in reserve, an effort to move banks toward more conservative positions and force them to maintain a larger cushion against potential losses. They come two years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers set off a worldwide banking crisis that required billions in government bailouts. Banks have warned that the new regulations could reduce profits, strain weaker institutions and raise the cost of borrowing for businesses and consumers. But regulators provided a lengthy transition period to give the banks time to adjust. The centerpiece of the agreement is a measure that requires banks to raise the amount of common equity they hold — considered the least risky form of capital — to 7 percent of assets from 2 percent.
Iran says hiker can go free on $500K bail BEIRUT, Lebanon — An Iranian prosecutor said Sunday that an American woman held with two friends on espionage charges for more than a year would be freed on $500,000 bail and be allowed to leave the country, Iranian news agencies reported. The announcement was the latest turnabout in a case that
has further strained the poor relations between Tehran and Washington. Contradictory signals from Iran about the fate of the three Americans have also exposed factional infighting in Iran’s government. Iranian officials first announced Thursday that they would release the woman, Sarah Shourd, 32, and said that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had personally intervened to free her. But the following day Iran’s judiciary, run by one of the president’s conservative rivals, canceled the release, saying it violated judicial rules.

Igor’s maximum winds grew to near 135 miles per hour, and some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. The hurricane was about 1,120 miles east of the Leeward Islands on Sunday afternoon, the center said. It is moving west near 14 miles per hour, with a turn toward the northwest expected on Tuesday. Igor’s hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from its center, but there currently are no hazards affecting land, the center said. — From wire reports

Jack Hartley, 58, at his home with his dog, Bouncer, in Fostoria, Ohio. Hartley, who works a 12-hour shift assembling tires, said he does not think he can last until age 66, when he will be eligible for full Social Security retirement benefits.
Retirement Continued from A1 He said he does not think he can last until age 66, when he will be eligible for full Social Security retirement benefits. At 62 or 65, he said, “that’s it.” After years of debate about how to keep Social Security solvent, the White House has created an 18-member panel to consider changes, including raising the retirement age. Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio and the House minority leader, has called for raising the age as high as 70 in the next 20 years, and many Democrats have endorsed similar steps, against opposition from some liberal groups. The panel will report by Dec. 1, after the midterm elections. Hartley says he feels like the forgotten man. Discussion has focused mostly on the older workers who hold relatively undemanding jobs at desks and computers that can be done at age 69 or beyond. But hard labor is not a thing of the past for older workers, who are on the whole less educated than younger ones. A new analysis by the Center for Economic and Policy Research found that one in three workers over age 58 does a physically demanding job like Hartley’s — including hammering nails, bending under sinks, lifting baggage — that can be radically different at age 69 than at age 62. Still others work under difficult conditions, like exposure to heat or cold, exposure to contaminants or weather, cramped workplaces or standing for long stretches. In all, the researchers found that 45 percent of older workers, or 8.5 million, held such difficult jobs. For janitors, nurses’ aides, plumbers, cashiers, waiters, cooks, carpenters, maintenance work-
“From 50 to 60 was a drastic change. The aches and pains, the feeling that your back could go at any second. My hips are worn out. In a seven-day week, I take Advil five nights for the pain.” — Jim McGuire, 62, ramp serviceman for United Airlines ers and others, raising the retirement age may mean squeezing more out of a declining body. Hartley had planned to retire at 58, but he and his wife had high medical expenses, and the company froze one year of its pension plan, reducing benefits. He is, he said, “stuck here.” Workers like Hartley present a conundrum for a Social Security overhaul, said Eugene Steuerle, a fellow at the Urban Institute, who favors raising the retirement age. People are living longer, and providing “old age” benefits to them when they are relatively young and healthy, he said, makes less available to them when they are older and frailer. “We’re close to the point when one-third of adults will be on Social Security and will be retired for a third or more of their adult lives,” Steuerle said. “It’s true that some people in late middle age have issues of physically demanding jobs, but saying we’re going to give everyone more years of retirement is not an efficient way of dealing with that issue.” Any changes in Social Security’s retirement age will not affect workers currently in their late 50s and their 60s, who are eligible for full benefits at age 66. But their experiences now are a harbinger of things to come, said Teresa Ghilarducci, a professor of economics at the New School for Social Research in New York, who opposes raising the Social Security retirement age because she says it will have a disproportionate impact on lower-income
workers and minorities, who tend to have lower life expectancies and so fewer years of collecting benefits. At the same time, bluecollar workers often spend more years paying into Social Security because they start full-time work younger, she said. “People who need to retire early — and they need to — are folks that start working in their late teens, whereas people who are promoting raising the retirement age are people who were in graduate school or professional school and got into jobs that would logically take them into their late 60s and 70s,” she said. A study by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics found that for workers ages 55 to 60, the share who said their jobs required “lots of physical effort” all or almost all of the time declined between 1992 and 2002, to 18 percent from 20 percent, but the percentages who said they had to lift heavy loads, stoop, kneel or crouch increased. In 2002, 29 percent of workers ages 55 to 60 said they experienced chronic pain in their jobs, and 46 percent said they had arthritis. And though more Americans are retiring early, it is not always voluntary. A 2006 study by McKinsey & Co. found that 40 percent of early retirees said they were forced into it, about half for health reasons. “If you try to punish people for retiring earlier” by raising the retirement age, “you’re punishing people who aren’t choosing it,” Ghilarducci said.
This is not news to Jim McGuire, 62, a ramp serviceman for United Airlines, who started lifting bags into airplanes 43 years ago. He has had rotator cuff surgery and separated a shoulder on the job. “From 50 to 60 was a drastic change,” he said. “The aches and pains, the feeling that your back could go at any second. My hips are worn out. In a seven-day week, I take Advil five nights for the pain.” McGuire said that he did not have a planned retirement date, but that he hoped to make it to 66. Since United’s pension plan was taken over by the government, cutting his benefits in half, he says Social Security has become a much bigger part of his future plans. For Bobbie Smith, 69, a certified nursing assistant at a nursing home in Miami, getting older has just meant using her body more judiciously. Providing direct care to the elderly, Smith belongs to one of the fastest-growing work forces in the country and one of the grayest. “I learned to arrange work so it won’t be so hard on me,” she said. “I try to encourage patients to the point that they help themselves.” She said she planned to continue working, even as she got older than some of her patients. “What am I going to do if I sit at home, keep cleaning the house?” she said. “I need the money. I bought me a car, and I want to pay for it. But I would still work.”
Continued from A1 And the funds will also help chip up the vegetation collected, Stutler said, and send it to biomass plants elsewhere in the state to create electricity. The idea is to change the fire behavior in these areas, he said, so that any wildfire that comes through will drop to the ground and be easy for firefighters to extinguish. “We call it taking the heat out of the woods,” Stutler said. He pointed to several areas where the fuels-reduction work had helped over the past several years, like during the 2007 G.W. Fire, which crept close to Black Butte Ranch, or even a fire that started south of Sunriver this summer from an abandoned campfire. It went “right into a treated area, and laid down,” Stutler said. Previously, Central Oregon counties had received $5 million from FEMA over three years, he said. And the current funds will continue to help do work in the areas that Community Wildfire Protection Plans have labeled the highest risk, like Tollgate or Deschutes River Woods. This summer some of the money went to haul away debris from Woodside Ranch, where 170 of the 250 homeowners participated, said Ray Miao, president of the homeowners association. Residents cleaned up the pine needles and pinecones, trimmed shrubs, even cut down some small trees that had grown dense. “Wildfire is the biggest hazard in our area,” he said. “So you want to try to protect the house, protect your property and your neighbor’s property.” There are spots around Bend that could be included under
the most recent grant because of their high risk, said Katie Lighthall, program manager for Project Wildfire, which helped set the priorities for southeast Bend, southwest Bend and areas west of town. “Those priorities are set out in the Community Wildfire Protection Plans,” she said, noting that the FEMA funds won’t be used for individual scattered homes. “We’re doing it where we can maximize our bang for the buck.” Work funded by the grant will probably start in May, Stutler said. And although the weather might be cooler these days, the fire season isn’t completely over for 2010, he said. “I think we could be lulled into complacency,” he said, noting that in 2004 several inches of snow fell in the middle of September, and then a wildfire sparked at the end of October. “Until we have 2 to 3 inches of water over an extended period of time on the fuels, we’re not out of fire season,” said Stutler. While the Rooster Rock Fire sent clouds of smoke over Bend this summer, overall it has been a fairly mild season, said Chris Hoff, with the Central Oregon Fire Management Service. On average, about 450 fires a year start in Central Oregon; this year it’s around 280, he said. “May and June were very wet and cool,” Hoff said, noting that the vegetation didn’t really dry out until August. And there weren’t as many chances for fires to spark, either. “The amount of lightning was less than we normally had, so that helped us,” Hoff said.

DOWNTOWN BEND • Sept. 18 & 19 PRESENTED BY
Registration Continued from A1 Democrats accounted for approximately 35 percent of registered voters in Deschutes County, 30 percent in Crook County, 34 percent in Jefferson County and 42 percent statewide. Meanwhile, 39 percent of registered voters were Republican in Deschutes County, 46 percent in Crook County, 40 percent in Jefferson County and 32 percent statewide. Voters are registering with the Independent Party because they are dissatisfied with Democratic and Republican politicians, Meek said. “Circumstances are so unfavorable for most people now, that they think the two major parties have been ineffective in looking out for their interests,” Meek said. Yet he also acknowledged that some people might be confused when they register with the Independent Party, and believe they are not selecting a political party. In Oregon, voters who do not select a political party are described as “nonaffiliated.” Connie Coates, 64, of Bend, is one voter who did not realize she was selecting a political party when she registered as Independent. Coates switched from the Democratic Party to the Independent Party in August, “because I’m tired of Republicans and Democrats. I voted for Bush, and then I turned around
and voted for Obama. Bummer, and bummer.” But Coates did not realize she had changed her registration to another political party. “I just thought it meant you’re independent, to vote on anybody you want to vote on,” Coates said. “Man, I need to check this out.” Meek said voters currently have an opportunity when registering to indicate they are not members of political parties. But the Independent Party would support a clearer registration format, such as asking voters, “Do you want to be a member of a party?” Meek said. Lee Blake, of Bend, changed from the Republican Party to the Independent Party in August, after approximately 40 years as a registered Republican. Blake said his decision was based on his disenchantment “with a number of issues that I see the Republicans representing, and their lack of participation in trying to get some kind of cooperation with the current incumbents.” Blake called the Independent Party “a different basis to vote for who is the best person to serve our country, or our county, or whatever it is we’re voting on.” Because the Independent Party was only certified and added to voter registration materials in 2007, people who have not updated their voter registration since then have never seen a voter registration form with the Independent Party listed, said
Meek, who founded the party with fellow Portland attorney Linda Williams. As a result, people re-registering after changing addresses are one demographic that has an opportunity to pick the Independent Party, and could be contributing to its growth. “Those areas where people move more often is where we’re going to have a higher registration, just because of demographics,” Meek said. The only candidate for local office who received the Independent Party’s nomination is Dallas Brown, the Democrat running for Deschutes County commissioner, according to staff at clerk’s offices in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties. “The reason I was aggressively seeking the Independent Party nomination is because I don’t consider myself a Democrat, first and foremost,” Brown said. “I consider myself a competent, common-sense candidate.” Tony DeBone, the Republican running for the same Deschutes County commission seat, said his platform will also attract votes from Independent Party members, even without the nomination. “In the commissioner’s race, I just ask people to research the two candidates, and I think I’d appeal to Democrats, Independents and Republicans,” DeBone said.

THE BULLETIN • Monday, September 13, 2010 A5
Border Continued from A1 For years, until an intricate sting operation brought her down in late 2009, Garnica embodied the seldom-discussed role of the United States in the trafficking trade. Cartels based in Mexico, where there is a long history of corruption, increasingly rely on well-placed operatives such as Garnica to reach their huge customer base in the United States. It is an argument often made by Mexican officials — that all the attention paid to corruption in their country has obscured a similar, growing problem on the U.S. side of the border. The cartels have grown so sophisticated, law enforcement officials say, that they are employing Cold War-era spy tactics to recruit and corrupt U.S. officials. “In order to stay in business, the drug trafficking organizations have to look at different methods for moving product,” said Thomas Frost, an assistant inspector general in the Department of Homeland Security. “The surest method is by corrupting a border official. The amount of money available to corrupt employees is staggering.” In late August, Garnica’s double life ended. U.S. District Judge David Briones sentenced her to 20 years in prison after Martha Garshe pleaded nica was, in guilty to six the words of counts of drug prosecutors, a smuggling, hu“valued asset” man traffickof the Mexiing and bribcan crime ery. She was, syndicate La in the words of Linea. prosecutors, a “valued asset” of the crime syndicate La Linea based in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, directing the movements of at least five men, four of whom are in prison or dead. “Everybody makes mistakes,” she said in court, wearing handcuffs and an orange prison jumpsuit. “I take responsibility for my mistakes.” Garnica’s saga — pieced together from hundreds of pages of court testimony, tape-recorded conversations and interviews with border officials, investigators, undercover agents and members of the judiciary — underscores the enormous challenge facing the United States as it tries to curtail the $25 billion-a-year business of illegal drug trafficking.
Rising corruption Corruption is on the rise in the ranks of U.S. law enforcement working the border, and nowhere is the problem more acute than in the frontline jobs with Garnica’s former employer, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, according to federal investigators. Garnica’s stiff sentence represented a rare victory in the struggle to root out tainted government employees. Homeland Security statistics suggest the rush to fill thousands of border enforcement jobs has translated into lower hiring standards. Barely 15 percent of Customs and Border Protection applicants undergo polygraph tests and of those, 60 percent were rejected by the agency because they failed the polygraph or were not qualified for the job, said Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., who oversees a Senate subcommittee on homeland security. The number of CBP corruption investigations opened by the inspector general climbed from 245 in 2006 to more than 770 this year. Corruption cases at its sister agency, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, rose from 66 to more than 220 over the same period. The vast majority of corruption cases involve illegal trafficking of drugs, guns, weapons and cash across the Southwest border. “We have in our country today a big presence of the Mexican cartels,” Pryor said. “With about 50 percent of the nation’s methamphetamine and marijuana coming through Mexico and about 90 percent of the cocaine, there is a huge financial incentive for cartels to try to corrupt our people.” CBP Commissioner Alan Bersin said the rise in investigations might simply correspond to the rapid growth in personnel. Corruption of “customs officials all over the world has been a perennial problem of border inspection and border enforcement,” he said in an interview. “What we haven’t seen is a vast conspiracy in the work force.” Still, Frost said, it takes only a handful of dirty government
Martha Garnica lived in a spacious house with a built-in pool, owned two Hummers and vacationed in Europe — a lifestyle funded by the Mexican drug cartel she helped gain access across the border. workers on the inside to make millions for the cartels. “It would be naive to think a $1 billion smuggling industry would allow itself to be dependent on one or two corrupt employees, or if you eliminate that corrupt employee that they won’t try to corrupt someone else,” he said.
Early suspicions There was always something about Martha Garnica that just didn’t feel right. As early as 1997, colleagues had suspicions about the assertive young mother of two who had worked seven years as an El Paso cop before joining the U.S. Customs Service. (Her division became part of CBP in 2003.) Garnica had a pattern of filing questionable workplace injury claims and socialized in bars popular among drug dealers. “There was an air about her that made her suspect,” said Ed Abud, an internal affairs officer at CBP El Paso who was involved in the investigation. Garnica’s adult daughter and attorney refused interview requests. In court, her attorney pleaded for leniency and counseling, saying Garnica had been the victim of abuse by a family member and a boyfriend. Abud said he now believes Garnica transferred to the federal agency with an eye toward criminal smuggling activities. “She came on board probably with the main purpose of trying to exploit the border for herself,” he said recently. “She figured, ‘What’s in it for me?’” In November 1997, authorities seized nearly 100 pounds of marijuana on the Bridge of the Americas into El Paso. An informant fingered Garnica as part of the conspiracy, according to two investigators. The FBI opened a case, but it went nowhere. In March 2005, she came under scrutiny again. That week, a van packed with 531 pounds of marijuana tried to enter the United States through the lane Garnica was staffing. She was not originally scheduled to work the lane that day, but “the duty roster had been tampered with,” said James Smith, head of the inspector general’s investigative unit in El Paso. As the van neared Garnica in the inspection booth, drug-sniffing dogs detected the marijuana, and agents arrested the driver. Others on the scene reported that Garnica looked shaken and left for the day, Smith said. But despite the mounting suspicions, authorities lacked the evidence to suspend or charge Garnica. “We kept hitting dead ends,” Smith said.
A break in the case Four years passed before they got their big break. In the spring of 2009, a CBP employee contacted Smith’s office. Garnica, he said, was overly friendly; he suspected she was trying to lure him into the smuggling business. The man was the perfect target, right out of the Cold War-era espionage handbook. He was recently divorced, with a child heading to college and a modest government salary. He was struggling to pay his bills. “It’s no different from spy agencies,” Smith said. “They look for weaknesses. Sex is a biggie. Alcohol, drug abuse, financial woes.” The man, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because officials say his life is in danger, agreed to work undercover. His code name would be Angel. It began subtly with chatty text messages, then drinks in a bar. They would talk about the weather and gripe about work, intermingling Spanish and English as so many people
Angel said in an interview after Garnica was sentenced. “I was always afraid her associates would get on to me.” As the undercover operation continued, the inspector general’s office pored over Garnica’s phone records and finances. She had two homes, two Hummers, a Cadillac and a truck. Her extended family took cruises, traveled to Europe and decorated one house with ostentatious statues and a fountain — signs she was living above her government salary. In several instances, Garnica’s number turned up in the cell phones of convicted drug traffickers and money launderers. Vehicles used in other smuggling cases appeared at her homes, according to surveillance information. On the night before Halloween, Garnica summoned Angel to the Agave bar. They had been talking for days about a big shipment — two large vehicles. The payoff would be several thousand dollars. Angel raced to meet Garnica; he had less than an hour before his shift began. He had trouble finding the bar, he said later, and when he spotted it, a pair of beefy men were guarding the door. “That made me uncomfortable,” he said. “I felt like everybody in the bar looked me up and down when I walked in,” he said later. As he scanned the room, Garnica pulled him aside to a table. She handed him a Nextel walkietalkie-style phone and a cocktail napkin with 12 ordinary phrases written in Spanish. Each corresponded to a lane at the port. “You have to memorize this,” she said. Angel hurried out of the bar to change his clothes and report for work. Around 1 a.m., Angel pushed the button on the phone and said simply: “Esta haciendo mucho frio” — it’s very cold out. The code words meant he was
working Lane 10. But Garnica, who investigators spotted watching the station in one of her Hummers, messaged back: “Hay mucha de la fea.” The slangy phrase translates roughly: “There’s a lot of ugliness” — criminal code warning of the presence of Mexican military or law enforcement. They aborted the delivery.
Arrests made A week later, Angel and Garnica repeated the routine, Angel again remarking on the cold weather to direct smugglers to Lane 10. He’d been given $3,500 in advance and told to look for a red pickup truck. When the truck reached Angel in the booth, he recognized Garnica’s nephew in the passenger seat and one of Ramirez-Rosalez’s brothers behind the wheel. “I acted like it was a normal inspection,” he recalled. “I stalled for a few minutes to make it look like I was checking the vehicle.” Then he waved the pair through. Just up the road, El Paso police stopped the truck, loaded with more than 160 pounds of marijuana, and arrested the pair. Two days later, a federal grand jury meeting in secret indicted Garnica and her co-conspirators. Garnica, unaware of the indictments or Angel’s role in the sting, prepared to bring across another load. The next shipment was set for the night of Nov. 17. At the last minute, investigators told Angel to call it off. “We’d already indicted Garnica, and we didn’t want to take any more risks,” Smith said. The next day, La Estrella was behind bars.

Days after ‘don’t ask’ ruling, another challenge goes to court By James Dao New York Times News Service
Nadia Shira Cohen / New York Times News Service
Clothing sits in the parking lot of a “pronto moda” or “fast fashion” company, in Prato, Italy. Such companies rely on the tens of thousands of Chinese laborers who began settling in Prato in the late 1980s and transformed the textile hub into a low-end garment manufacturing capital.
Italy Continued from A1 The city is now home to the largest concentration of Chinese in Europe — some legal, many more not. Here in the heart of Tuscany, Chinese laborers work round the clock in some 3,200 businesses making low-end clothes, shoes and accessories, often with materials imported from China, for sale at midprice and low-end retailers worldwide. It is a “Made in Italy” problem: Enabled by Italy’s weak institutions and high tolerance for rule-bending, the Chinese have blurred the line between “Made in China” and “Made in Italy,” undermining Italy’s cachet and ability to market its goods exclusively as high end. Part of the resentment is cultural: The city’s classic Italian feel is giving way to that of a Chinatown, with signs in Italian and Chinese, and groceries that sell food imported from China.
Italy’s future? But what seems to gall some Italians most is that the Chinese are beating them at their own game — tax evasion and brilliant ways of navigating Italy’s notoriously complex bureaucracy — and have created a thriving, if largely underground new sector while many Prato businesses have gone under. The result is a toxic combination of residual fears about immigration and the economy. “This could be the future of Italy,” said Edoardo Nesi, the culture commissioner of Prato province. “Italy should pay attention to the risks.” The situation has steadily grown beyond the control of state tax and immigration authorities. According to the Bank of Italy, Chinese individuals in Prato channel an estimated $1.5 million a day to China, mainly earnings from the garment and textile trade. Profits of that magnitude are not showing up in tax records, and some local officials say the Chinese prefer to repatriate their profits rather than invest locally. The authorities also say that Chinese and probably Italian organized crime is on the rise, involving not only illegal fabric imports, but also human trafficking, prostitution, gambling and money laundering. The rest of Italy is watching closely. “Lots of businesses from Emilia Romagna, Puglia and the Veneto say, ‘We don’t want to wind up like Prato,’” said Silvia Pieraccini, the author of “The Chinese Siege,” a book about the rise of the “pronto moda” or “fast fashion” economy. Tensions have been running high since Italian authorities stepped up raids this spring on workshops that use illegal labor, and grew even more when Italian prosecutors arrested 24 people and investigated 100 businesses in the Prato area in late June. The charges included money laundering, prostitution, counterfeiting and classifying foreign-made products as “Made in Italy.” Yet many Chinese in Prato are offended at the idea that they have ruined the city. “If the Chinese hadn’t gone to Prato, would there be pronto moda?” asked Matteo Wong, 30, who was born in China and raised in Prato and runs a consulting office for Chinese immigrants. “Did the Chinese take jobs away from Italians? If anything, they brought lots of jobs to Italians.” In recent months, Prato has become a diplomatic point of contention. Italian officials say the Chinese government has not done enough so far to address the issue of illegal immigrants, and they are seeking a bilateral ac-
cord with China to identify and deport them. Italian officials say Prato is expected to be on the agenda when Prime Minister Wen Jiabao of China visits Rome in October.
‘This climate is risky’ According to the Prato chamber of commerce, the number of Italian-owned textile businesses registered in Prato has dropped in half since 2001 to just below 3,000, 200 fewer than those now owned by Chinese, almost all in the garment sector. Once a major fabric producer and exporter, Prato now accounts for 27 percent of Italy’s fabric imports from China. Resentment runs high. “You take someone from Prato with two unemployed kids, and when a Chinese person drives by in a Porsche Cayenne or a Mercedes bought with money earned from illegally exploiting immigrant workers, this climate is risky,” said Domenico Savi, Prato’s chief of police until June. According to the Prato mayor’s office, there are 11,500 legal Chinese immigrants, out of Prato’s total population of 187,000. But the office estimates the city has another 25,000 illegal immigrants, the majority of them Chinese. With its bureaucracy, protectionist policies and organized crime, Italy is arguably Western Europe’s least business-friendly country. Yet in Prato, the Chinese have managed to create an entirely new economy from scratch in a matter of years. A common technique used, often with the aid of knowledgeable Italian tax consultants and lawyers, is to open a business, close it before the tax police can catch up, then reopen the same workspace with a new tax code number. Prato’s streets have slowly become more and more Chinese, as the Chinese bought out Italianowned shops and apartments, often paying in cash. Public schools are increasingly filled with Chinese pupils. The work — long hours at sewing machines — takes place in backroom workshops with makeshift sleeping quarters. The heart of the “fast fashion” sector is an industrial area on the outskirts of town, Macrolotto, filled with Chinese fashion wholesalers. Here, vans from across Europe line the parking lots as retailers buy “Made in Italy” clothing to resell back home at a huge markup. By buying in relatively small quantities and taking advantage of the fluid borders of the Eu-
ropean Union, most manage to avoid paying import tariffs. Much of the tightening comes from Prato’s new administration. In 2009, the traditionally left-wing city elected its first right-wing mayor in the postwar era, whose winning campaign tapped into powerful local fears of a “Chinese invasion,” and who seeks a broader European Union response to Chinese immigration. “How can China leave a mark like this in the EU?” the mayor, Roberto Cenni, asked. “Noise, bad habits, prostitution. People can’t live anymore. They’re sick of it.” Cenni is a former president and a current shareholder of Go-Fin, a Prato holding company that is behind several midrange Italian fashion companies. At least one of these, Sasch, moved much of its production to China within the last 10 years. Powerless to reverse the broader economic currents, the mayor has instead focused on small initiatives, including new rules that prohibit drying fish on balconies and require all Prato shopkeepers to speak Italian. These have won him praise from some local people, but also criticism for bigotry. He has also stepped up raids on Chinese businesses. Critics say they are little more than media spectacles, but local Chinese have seen them as an unwarranted attack. Many illegal Chinese immigrants arrive by bus from Russia or the Balkans, and either destroy their passports or give them away to the organized crime groups that help bring them. Many others overstay their tourist visas. “Italy has a 20th-century immigration law; it tends to think of immigrants as a phenomenon linked to work, in which people move from poor countries to rich ones,” said Andrea Frattani, a former social welfare commissioner in Prato’s previous center-left government. Instead, he argued, what Italy is witnessing in Prato is “a precise strategy” on the part of the Chinese government to create an economic foothold in Europe. Asked recently if that was the case, China’s ambassador to Italy, Ding Wei, said only that Prato had been a central issue in his portfolio since he arrived in spring, and that he had sent advisers to investigate. The problems will not be resolved easily. “There’s no plan,” said Xu Qiu Lin, a local entrepreneur and the only Chinese member of Confindustria in Prato, echoing a widespread sentiment. “There’s no plan; that’s the problem.”
For 17 years, Maj. Margaret Witt rose steadily through the Air Force and Air Force Reserves, winning plaudits from colleagues, strong performance reviews from superiors and service medals from the department. A flight nurse, she treated wounded troops during Desert Storm and was featured in Air Force promotional materials for years. Witt is also a lesbian. To hide her sexual orientation, she skipped military functions where dates were invited. She dodged questions about her personal life. And she avoided inviting colleagues home, lest some possession — a book, a photograph — might tip them off. “You can’t be honest,” Witt, 46, said in a recent interview. “I didn’t want to answer questions, even to say what my weekend plans were.” Her efforts to maintain a low profile ended in 2004, when the jilted husband of a woman Witt had started to date sent a note to the Air Force disclosing her orientation. After an investigation and hearing, the Air Force discharged her in 2007 under the policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell.” But her case is far from over. Witt sued, and, in what will be one of the most closely watched challenges to the law to date, she is scheduled to appear in federal court in Tacoma, Wash., today to argue that the Air Force violated her rights and must reinstate her. The court appearance comes at a time of growing debate about the policy. On Thursday, a federal judge in California ruled that the don’t ask, don’t tell policy was unconstitutional. Witt’s case has already set an important precedent. After a federal judge dismissed her lawsuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit reinstated it, ruling in 2008 that the government had to meet a higher standard of scrutiny before intruding on her private life. The panel sent her case back to the District Court for trial. If Witt prevails in District Court, she will become the first woman allowed to serve openly as a lesbian since don’t ask, don’t tell was enacted in 1993. The law, however, would continue to apply
to other service members. “It’s not as if she would go around telling people,” said James Lobsenz, a lawyer who, along with the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington, is representing Witt. “But if someone asked, ‘Are you a lesbian,’ she could respond, ‘Yes,’ and not be thrown out.”
New challenges Under don’t ask, don’t tell, the simple acknowledgment of one’s homosexuality can lead to discharge. In its ruling, the 9th Circuit said that to discharge Witt, the government must prove that removing her, or any other individual

service member, is the only way to significantly advance an important policy. The ruling applies only in the 9th Circuit, which is based in San Francisco and covers much of the West. The government has asserted that Congress firmly established that homosexual behavior undermines morale and military readiness when it enacted don’t ask, don’t tell. But the Obama administration did not appeal the ruling, saying it would wait until Witt’s trial concluded in the lower court. If Witt wins and is allowed to serve openly as a lesbian, the Justice Department argues in court papers, it will undermine morale in the services by creating two standards of fairness: one for her and another for everyone else. Some legal experts and supporters of don’t ask, don’t tell say the 9th Circuit’s ruling could also open the door to challenges to other policies that attempt to set uniform standards across the military. Professor William Woodruff, a retired Army lawyer who teaches at Campbell University School of Law in Raleigh N.C., said that if the Witt ruling stood, individuals could challenge other kinds of discharges, like those for excess weight or poor eyesight. “Traditionally, the Supreme Court has said federal justices should not be playing in military policy,” he said. “Those are areas where the judiciary does not have the experience or knowledge to substitute their judgment for that of the military commander.”

Area farm growing a new trend I
f I told you this column is about a Central Oregonian’s first-ever farming season, you’d probably expect a sob story with dreams of a High Desert bounty crushed between a cold, late spring and an early autumn frost. Spoiler alert: It’s not. Make no mistake, this is a success story, despite this summer’s, well, challenging weather. The farmer is Sarahlee Lawrence, a 27year-old who grew up on her parents’ ranch near Terrebonne, left to study environmental science in college and graduate school, then worked as a river Sarahlee rafting guide for sevLawrence eral years. She was teaching a course at the Wild Rockies Field Institute, in Colorado, when she came across some alarming curriculum materials about food. She learned, for example, that our food travels an average of 1,500 miles from the field to our plates. “I just didn’t realize that all these environmental issues existed with food,” she says. “I didn’t realize that food is the biggest (part of our) carbon footprint and our biggest use of petroleum.” Then she thought: “I could do something about that.” Two years ago, she went home and planted cover crops to restore nutrients to the land where her parents had grown conventional hay. She shoveled 200 tons of manure onto the property to transform a three-acre patch of thin, volcanic soil into rich humus capable of producing vegetables. Onlookers raised their eyebrows skeptically. Did she forget how cold it gets at night? There are other places where growing seasons are long and mild. But Lawrence’s reasoning was simple. “Why do we need to grow food here? Because we live here,” she says. “Besides, it’s not like we’re tackling something impossible,” she adds. “It just takes more time and money than in some other places.” She plowed ahead, naming her farm Rainshadow Organics, and turning to other farmers in Central Oregon for mentorship. “They’re skilled and super dedicated,” she says of local organic food growers, “and maybe a little crazy.” Then she joined them. In early spring, she started seeds in the greenhouse. She found an experienced helper, Michael Adcock, through a program called Willing Workers on Organic Farms. In May, they began transplanting the sprouts into a one-acre plot they call the “baby garden,” where well water and a warm microclimate allow them to pamper delicate plants. Meanwhile, word of her farm spread, especially in Sisters, which didn’t have as many Community Supported Agriculture options as Bend and Redmond. “People have been so, so enthusiastic,” she says. “I thought people would be supportive, but this ... blew me away.” By late June, nearly 40 families had joined the CSA. They paid a flat fee at the start of the season in exchange for a weekly box of whatever produce she could provide. Lawrence is optimistic she’ll find 60 members next year. She also struck deals with St. Charles Redmond and several restaurants in Bend. Farmers markets, on the other hand, turned out to be an inefficient way to sell her goods. All summer, to Lawrence’s delight, food kept popping out of the ground. “Everybody says, ‘You can’t grow anything in Central Oregon.’ Well, it turns out you can grow a lot,” she says. From exotic-sounding green zebra tomatoes (in the greenhouse) and dragontongue beans to common spinach and onions, the farm did, in fact, produce a bounty, albeit for two short months. Lawrence is getting close to winning the equivalent of the local farmers’ lottery. She’s in talks with St. Charles Bend to provide more produce to the hospital system next year, which could mean expanding by as many as 50 acres. In other words, Lawrence isn’t giving up her farming dream anytime soon. “I love my job,” she says. “I hope I can do this until I’m, like, 100.” Lily Raff can be reached at 541-6177836 or at email@example.com.

Annual Legislature put to a vote Measure 71 will put lawmakers in Salem yearly, limit sessions By Cindy Powers The Bulletin
The fact that Oregon’s Legislature officially meets every two years makes the state a bit of a unique bird.
ELECTION The Beaver State is one of only five that does not have annual legislative sessions, but if Ballot Measure 71 passes this November, Oregon will head into the mainstream. The proposal calls for the Legislature to meet annually and limits
the length of sessions to 160 days in odd-numbered years and 35 days in even-numbered years. Legislators could extend those sessions in five-day increments with a two-thirds supporting vote for each extension. Advocates say the change will save money by paring down the number of days legislators work and reducing the need for expensive special sessions. See Measure 71 / B2
If ‘yes’ — if ‘no’ Result of “yes” vote: Requires Legislative Assembly to meet each year. Limits regular sessions to 160 days in odd-numbered years and 35 days in even-numbered years. Allows five-day extensions by two-thirds vote. Result of “no” vote: Retains current law, requiring regular sessions of Legislative Assembly only in oddnumbered years, with no limit on length of sessions. Estimated financial impact: less than $100,000 Source: Oregon Secretary of State

CENTRAL OREGON WEATHER
Temperatures forecast to stay warm before a cool weekend By Lauren Dake The Bulletin
Central Oregonians should make some outdoor plans as the coming week is expected to bring warm temperatures before the mercury drops into the weekend. “We’re going to be in the mid-70s to low 80s range at least into Friday, and then things cool off over the weekend as temperatures get into the 60s,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Mary Johnson.
Chance of showers all week There will be a chance of precipitation throughout the week, but mainly coming as isolated showers in the evening. “You really can’t complain (about this week),” Johnson said. Today is expected to see temperatures ranging from 77 to 82 degrees and evening lows between 35 and 45 degrees. There could be some afternoon and evening showers.
The temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday should stay in the upper 70s to low 80s until it drops into the mid-30s to low 40s at night. The middle of the week looks slightly warmer, according to Johnson.

More clouds possible Thursday On Thursday, it could be partly cloudy, but temperatures will remain in the same range. The nighttime lows are expected to be slightly warmer, ranging from 38 to 48 degrees. Friday is expected to bring a slight chance of rain and a thunderstorm in the afternoon, but the temperature should still be in the mid70s to about 80 degrees. “It’s seasonal weather,” Johnson said. Temperatures are expected to drop starting into the weekend with highs in the upper 60s, according to the forecast.

Ducks Continued from B1 Over the years, the fundraiser has held true to its original mission to help local charities that focus on children and families. â€œWe canâ€™t give money if people donâ€™t buy ducks, so weâ€™re thankful for our generous community,â€? said Jeremy Boethin, chair of the event, with the Rotary Club of Bend. As soon as the ducks were dumped and started heading downstream, so did Dallas and Caitlin. The plastic toys moved swiftly. Within about 15 minutes, the ducks were nearing the end of the race. A blue duck was in the lead, followed by a purple and pink. On the bank of the river, Andrew Ball, 11, and his brother, Alex, 14, watched as the first duck crossed the finish line. For Andrew Ball, having to wait was difficult. â€œI wanted to get scissors and

Measure 71 Continued from B1 But some say lengthy sessions may scare away political hopefuls who must work for a living, while short sessions mean less public input on legislation. Oregon Senate President Peter Courtney, D-Salem, was a driving force behind the measure. Now serving his fourth term in the Legislature, Courtney said annual sessions are necessary for legislators to get their work done. â€œI have been there, and I will tell you we are going into special sessions more, and the general sessions are getting longer because we canâ€™t handle the workload,â€? Courtney said. Biennial sessions also give greater opportunity for lobbyists, agency heads and even the media to have a greater influence on the political process, he said. â€œI canâ€™t deal with public policy when I am not going to be in the building for 18 months,â€? Courtney said.
Too many, too few State Sen. Chris Telfer, R-Bend, who is running for state treasurer, said the concept of meeting annually is a good one, but Measure 71 is a bad way to implement it. â€œIn my heart, I believe in annual sessions, but I believe 160 days is too many, and 35 is way too short,â€? Telfer said. Telfer said a 25-day special session held in February illustrates her point. â€œThere were way too many bills that never had public testimony,â€? she said. â€œThings moved way too fast, and the public did not have a chance to weigh in.â€? Telfer also said a 160-day session may not be doable for parttime legislators earning a state salary of $1,800 a month. â€œIf, in fact, the Legislature is supposed to be the peopleâ€™s legislature, you exclude a lot of good

people who canâ€™t give up that much time because they have to make a living.â€?
â€˜A political toolâ€™ State Rep. Judy Stiegler, DBend, supports Measure 71. She said annual sessions will allow lawmakers to respond more quickly to emergencies and reduce their chances of using special sessions for political gain. â€œThe example that comes to mind right now is calling a special session so we can make specific (budget) cuts instead of the governorâ€™s across-the-board cuts,â€? she said. â€œI believe that is a legitimate reason to go in, but it can be used as a political tool during the campaign season. If we donâ€™t go in there without some kind of an agreement ... there will be 90 people politically posturing.â€? Stiegler is running to keep her seat against Republican attorney Jason Conger and unaffiliated real estate broker Michael Kozak.
Ferrioli said he was formerly in favor of annual sessions but thinks cutting legislative sessions short â€” which now run as long as lawmakers decide is necessary â€” is a mistake. â€œCitizens from all over Oregon are going to be told that, â€˜You are going to have to present your case in Salem in a shorter period of time with less opportunity to prepare and with far less opportunity to get a groundswell of Oregonians weighing in on an issue,â€™â€? he said.
Cindy Powers can be reached at 541-617-7812 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Timely response Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Kitzhaber, who recently announced he will implement a 10-year budget planning cycle if elected, supports the measure. â€œHe talks about this in the context of the need to respond in a Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions
Bigger government? Kozak said he opposes the measure. â€œI donâ€™t want to see annual legislative sessions because then government gets bigger, and we lose the concept of citizen legislator,â€? he said. â€œAnd if you look at the states who have professional politicians, they are the ones who have the worst problems.â€? Conger could not be reached for comment Friday. Stiegler said the cost of special sessions is another reason annual sessions make sense. â€œIt costs, just to have us sitting there, about $13,500 a day, which doesnâ€™t sound like a lot, but if you are sitting there for 10 or 20 days, thatâ€™s real money, and itâ€™s money we donâ€™t have,â€? Stiegler said. Senate Republican Leader Ted Ferrioli described himself as â€œsort of tornâ€? over Measure 71 and echoed Telferâ€™s point about public involvement.
timely manner to the opportunities and challenges presented by todayâ€™s fast-paced economy,â€? said campaign spokeswoman Jillian Schoene. â€œAnd it is more important now than ever, particularly as it relates to the difficulty in forecasting state revenues two years out.â€? Representatives for Kitzhaberâ€™s Republican opponent, Chris Dudley, were not able to respond to a request for comment by Fridayâ€™s deadline.

O Family revives hop harvest
A SILHOUETTED ASCENSION
State National Guard mobilizes for Iraq amid suicide concerns The Associated Press PORTLAND — More than 500 Oregon Army National Guard soldiers are mobilizing this week for Iraq amid continued concerns over soldier suicides. The Oregonian reported that the death of Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Gross in February was instrumental in each departing soldier meeting face to face with a chaplain.
By Greg Stiles (Medford) Mail Tribune
ASHLAND — Even amid the euphoria of their second straight harvest, the owners of Alpha Beta Hops realize they still are in the experimental phase of their hop-growing careers. Steve and Rebecca Pierce, along with their son Spencer, are discovering the ins and outs of organic farming even as they resurrect a crop that until last year hadn’t been commercially grown in Southern Oregon since the late 1980s. In April 2009, the Pierces planted 1,800 rhizomes of Cascade hops, which produce small cones whose lupulin resin gives beer its bitterness and aroma. They harvested just a fraction of the farm’s potential last fall. “We feel like pioneers,” admitted Steve Pierce, and the scene Saturday had a certain pioneer feel to it as his family was joined by about two dozen friends who gathered to help harvest hops at the startup operation on Butler Creek Road. Harvesting hops is fairly simple, but labor intensive. Friends come in handy, and about 25 to 30 showed up, helping cut down the entwined vines, shake the cones loose and sort the flowers, which are dried on a metal screen, bagged in mylar and stored at 40 degrees. “If we can get the nutrients figured out, we can get close to 2,000 pounds here,” Pierce said. “Last year, we had a couple hundred pounds, and I’m hoping for 300 or 400 pounds this year.” Aphids attacked the first crop, so the Pierces countered with an army of 7,500 ladybugs, which quelled the aphids. Spider mites took their turn this year, sucking chlorophyll from the lower parts of the plants. “You just can’t throw pesticides on them,” Pierce said. Nonetheless, when chilly weather damaged other types of crops in the spring, the hardy hop variety didn’t miss a beat, he said. Spurred by a wholesale price spike in 2007, the Pierces acquired juniper poles, wires and a tractor, and went to work converting a cow pasture not far from Grizzly Peak into a hop farm. A large warehouse fire in America and a crop failure in Germany pushed wholesale prices to between $50 and $60 a pound for hops. “When you consider Northwest craft brewers use about a pound of hops per (31-gallon) barrel, it gets expensive,” Steve Pierce said. It looked like a good time to jump in. Last year, the family sold 75 pounds of hops each to Standing Stone Brewing Co. and Caldera Brewing Co.
Gross was found dead in his locked car off a farm road outside Hermiston. The Umatilla County medical examiner ruled the death a suicide, but Gross’ family called for a second investigation and the case has been reopened. Suicide has become an issue of troop readiness and force strength. Three Oregon Guard soldiers have died in combat since 2007, and 14 have died by suicide.

Young Hubbard brothers build mini-pumpkin empire The Associated Press HUBBARD — Dylan Wells, 21, and his brother Darren, 19, may grow and sell miniature pumpkins, but there is nothing small about the way they do business. The brothers raise small ornamental pumpkins, gourds, winter squash and Indian corn that are sold across the U.S. and in Japan and Mexico. They are also looking to tap into the Central American market. What started out as having too many pumpkins, after trying to grow just a few, has turned into a flourishing business for the Wells brothers. “It started by overplanting the garden with large pumpkins, so we filled up the pickup and parked it at the end of the driveway,” Dylan Wells said. “We put a can out there and used a payon-your-honor type system, and we still do that to this day.” After some research, their
father, Dan, found that there was a market for miniature ornamental pumpkins, and their business, Autumn Harvest, was born. When they first started 15 years ago, their father coached them in the basic principles of running a business. That education is helping them put themselves through college so they can return and continue their business. Their operation covers 210 acres near Hubbard. During their busiest time, they have 30 to 35 employees working to get their four pumpkin varieties, five squash varieties, mixed gourds and Indian corn harvested and processed. Autumn Harvest has operated as a wholesale operation, going through distributors in the Northwest, Mexico and Japan, but now it is tapping into the retail market, mainly with its new online store and Google.
O B Lane County officials to dine on train cars EUGENE— About 25 politicians in Oregon’s Lane County have been invited to dine aboard the Union Pacific Railroad’s historic train cars. The Register-Guard reported the railroad is hosting the invitation-only event at its rail yards in Eugene to let company Chairman Jim Young meet local elected and appointed officials. The newspaper says it also gives the officials a chance to discuss issues such as train noise, road crossings, underground pollution and improving service. The dinner is worth about $30 per person, well under Oregon’s law preventing elected officials from receiving gifts worth more than $50 if given to influence legislation. The newspaper says that while many of the officials consider it a social event, some intend to reimburse the railroad
for the dinner’s cost. The Eugene stop is one of several the UP execs are making in the Northwest.
BPA to spend $125M on wildlife habitat PORTLAND — The Bonneville Power Administration plans to spend more than $125 million to protect fish and wildlife habitat in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The Oregonian reported that the federal power agency and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife released a draft of the deal late Friday after years of negotiations. The agreement to protect at least 16,880 acres compensates for habitat lost when the government built 13 Willamette River basin dams and reservoirs. The money will help the state, tribes and nonprofit organizations buy land or conservation easements.
Pilot injured when plane clips hangar AURORA — The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says a Vancouver, Wash., man was hurt when the light plane he was piloting struck a hangar at the Aurora airport. The sheriff’s office identified the victim of the Saturday evening accident as 53-year-old Kevin Carr, who was alone in the aircraft. He was taken by helicopter to Oregon Health & Science University hospital in Portland, but his condition was not immediately known. Sheriff’s deputies said preliminary information indicates the Savage-Cozy experimental aircraft struck the roof of a hangar before coming to rest on an airport ramp. The cause of the accident is being investigated. — From wire reports

Temper tantrum over coal exports
awmakers have done their best in recent years to rid Oregon of the scourge of cheap electricity. They’ve required utilities to sell renewable power. They’ve diverted millions of dollars
in public school funding to solar and wind projects by means of the
Business Energy Tax Credit. They’ve even allowed people to generate renewable power on their own and sell it back to utilities (and other Oregonians) at highly inflated rates. But the political battles behind these policies are largely in the past. What windmills will environmental groups and like-minded politicians tilt at next? A story in Thursday’s editions of The Oregonian provides a hint, and it’s almost too outlandish to believe. We checked the date twice to make sure it wasn’t April 1. With the closure of Portland General Electric’s Boardman facility, Oregon will soon be free of coal-fired power plants. But in the rest of the world, and to some extent within the United States, coal use is booming. Barring significant policy changes, world coal use in 2030 will be roughly 40 percent higher in 2030 than in 2007, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Coal consumption in China could jump more than 80 percent during the same period. The United States happens to have enormous coal reserves, including cheaply mined deposits in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana. As environmental policies have limited the use of coal in the United States, energy companies have looked with greater interest at markets abroad. Two such companies are Ambre Energy, based in Australia, and Peabody Energy, the biggest coal producer in the United States. Both may build coalexport terminals on the West Coast, according to The Oregonian, and likely sites include Washington state and, perhaps, Oregon. Environmental groups aren’t happy. Brett VandenHeuvel, executive director of Columbia Riverkeeper, accused coal companies of “seeking to get around the decisions of citizens opposing coal” by exporting the stuff. He told The Oregonian that regulatory agencies should weigh the environmental effects of coal shipped elsewhere, including global warming. Prepare for outrage, lawsuits and, from posturing officeholders, denun-
ciations of Big Coal and fossil-fuel economies. It’ll be just like the recent battle over natural gas import terminals, only the fury will be directed at fuel that’s on its way out rather than fuel on its way in. In Oregon, fossil fuels get it coming and going. (And as Facebook has discovered, to its chagrin, even some users of electricity are criticized for the fuel mix employed by their power companies.) The environmental consequences of coal use are well known, of course, and policymakers everywhere should work to minimize them. But throwing a temper tantrum over export terminals would be unproductive from an environmental standpoint and potentially harmful from an economic standpoint. The U.S. might have the world’s largest coal reserves, but it doesn’t have the world’s only coal reserves. The Northwest, meanwhile, doesn’t have a monopoly on potential terminal sites. For these reasons, China, India and other developing countries will continue to use lots of coal with or without Northwest terminals, Stanford University coal researcher Richard Morse told The Oregonian. Limiting coal exports, on the other hand, would end up hurting plenty of Americans. Far from harming Oregonians and Washingtonians, in fact, building a few coal-export terminals would be good for them. And we’re not referring only to construction workers and terminal employees. Watching cheap domestic fuel flow steadily to China, India and elsewhere would be a useful reminder that we live in a global economy. Oregonians are free to create a highcost, high-hassle island of windmills and solar arrays, and they have. But it pays to remember we have to compete with countries that are happy to eat our lunch in pursuit of greater prosperity. They’re also happy to do it on the strength of inexpensive fuel we’re turning away.
A health care reality B oth of Oregon’s major-party gubernatorial candidates argue that state workers must share at least some of the cost of their health insurance. So does outgoing Gov. Ted Kulongoski. What explains such common ground? The facts.
Across the nation, workers paid about 14 percent more for family health care coverage in 2010 than they did in 2009. That 14 percent increase represents $482, bringing the average worker’s share of his family’s health coverage to roughly $4,000. State workers in Oregon don’t
share the cost for their health coverage. And, as noted by Gov. Kulongoski’s Reset Cabinet, their plans don’t even require deductibles. If we were in state workers’ shoes, we probably wouldn’t like the prospect of surrendering a chunk of such a rich benefit. Nevertheless, it’s increasingly out of step with the rest of the working world. And, more importantly, it’s increasingly unaffordable. For those reasons, the 2011 Legislature had better consider meaningful reform as much of a no-brainer as the outgoing governor and both of his possible successors.
My Nickel’s Worth Immigration cheats Are we a safe haven for illegal aliens? Some of us local taxpayers are concerned that many contractors, subcontractors, merchants, landlords and others in Deschutes County are openly employing and housing many illegal aliens (often paying them low wages under the table), using the feeble excuse that they cannot get local citizens to do the work. That is pure hogwash. These folks know they are breaking the law, stating we must employ illegal aliens in order to be competitive. Every Oregon taxpayer should know that, according to Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), it costs Oregonians more than $705 million every year to provide the services required by illegal aliens. Those who do business with illegal aliens are triple cheaters. 1. They cheat the government (you and me) of taxes that must be made up by honest citizens. 2. They cheat the community who has to pay the health, education, welfare, and law enforcement costs of illegal aliens and their families. 3. They cheat their competition, who has to pay fair wages and honest taxes, and thus is at a severe economic disadvantage. Employers and merchants can simply call toll free to 888-464-4218 (Social Security) to verify an employee’s legal status, or use the E-Verify system online. It takes less than 10 minutes of anyone’s time to do this. Help stop these cheaters and illegal alien activity by anonymously calling toll-free to Immigration at 866-347-2423. Let’s all stand up for honesty and in-
tegrity, and put a stop to these “triple cheaters!” Mert Troyer Bend
Bend ‘joke’ It’s a joke, right? The city puts in ramps that don’t meet the ADA requirements and now will cost the city more money to be fixed. Kind of reminds me of the joke from a few years ago. Let’s see … it was something about buses. How did that joke go? All I can remember is that the joke was on us! Thank you, city of Bend, for putting jokes on the front page for us to read! Frankly, I’d rather be entertained by fiscal responsibility. Gail Orr Bend
Tax public workers I have a nifty solution to part of Oregon’s budget problem. Why not put a 5 percent surtax on the total income of all those public union members who are getting a 4.5 percent raise, and then they can all join the regular folks who have taken a pay cut to pay for the infamous Measures 66 and 67? Craig Bennett Bend
Vote for Stiegler Because I live in Redmond and can’t vote for Judy Stiegler, I want to encourage those in Bend to do so. Judy has worked hard and achieved much during her time in the Legislature. Having put herself through college and law school, she knows the value of educa-
tion and helped others in the Legislature understand why Central Oregon needed the OSU-Cascades campus. Her efforts kept the college from being cut in 2009. Judy spent many years working on behalf of abused and neglected children through the Court Appointed Special Advocates program. Having volunteered as a CASA myself, I’ve seen the many needs of children and families. I’m glad to know that Judy will fight for the betterment of children, families and the elderly. Her support of expanding the Oregon Health Plan to include more children is an example. Judy loves the Bend community, has made her life here, and has a strong, compassionate heart. Teachers, police officers, firefighters and nurses all endorse her, and I am proud to support her myself. I urge Bend residents to vote for Judy Stiegler. Mary Clark Redmond
Kennel was first I agree with the planning commission’s recent decision to allow the Crook County kennel to remain in operation as it is. The kennel operator is obviously conscientious and is being harassed. I have little sympathy for anyone who purchases property in the “country” and later claims they had no knowledge of the area they purchased in. If there are dog kennels, there are dogs. If there are horses, there are flies. If there’s an airport, there are planes. The “duh” factor here is astonishing, and I hope the kennel remains for another 30 years! Anne Hutchison Bend

Many Republicans exhibit narcissistic personality disorder By Roger Aikin Bulletin guest columnist
he Bulletin was very one-sided during a recent week, with several letters from opponents of President Obama. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis say they “hate what President Obama is doing to this country.” We Democrats watched in horror for eight years while Bush and the Republicans drove this country off a cliff. They waged two endless wars, turned the best economy we had ever seen into one of the worst, and made the tax code even more unfair. They ignored the health care crisis and the banking mischief that led to the recession. Above all, they squandered the huge budget surplus (that President Clinton had achieved at great political cost) and doubled the total national debt. Now they are pushing a deficit narrative, which is both hypocritical and cynical because, in my opinion, they caused the deficit on purpose so that they could go after the federal programs they never liked in the first place: “Gee, we have a huge budget
deficit. How did that happen? We’ll just have to cut Social Security. Sorry.”) As for the “socialism” narrative the GOP is pushing, I am guessing that many people the Lewises know in Sunriver, like many of the rest of us, get at least one check from the government. So I propose the following definition: “Socialism is any government program that helps somebody else.” Again, with respect to the Lewises (whose letter is civil, and who claim not to actually hate the president, which is refreshing), “liberal haters” cannot hold a candle to haters on the far right. Limbaugh and his friends make a living venomously bashing gays, minorities, Muslims and their political enemies. (I had included here an example of Limbaugh’s fear mongering, but The Bulletin could not even print it because it was so offensive.) Threats of violence have even come from Republicans running for Congress. As for Fox and its agenda, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp just donated $1 million to the Republican Governors re-
IN MY VIEW election fund — and didn’t report that fact on its own network until it was revealed elsewhere. Can you imaging how Fox would have howled if ABC had contributed to the Democrats? Again, with respect to the Lewises, I can’t watch Fox because its presenters have such bad manners. They even shout down each other. All news networks make things worse because the “stories” they now report are not “What are the facts?” but “What do people think are the facts?” So, if some 20 percent of Americans believe that the president is a Muslim, or not a citizen, that is a “story,” even though, historically, it is likely that at least 20 percent of Americans always hate whoever is president and will believe anything bad about him. (Both the right and left accuse each other of being poorly informed, but you might be interested to know that a significant percentage of the people who still believe
President Obama is not a United States citizen actually do know he was born in Hawaii.) Before the Internet you had to dig to find really wacky political viewpoints. You might even have to go to a library. Now politics on the Internet is like pornography — a website for every perversion. You would think people would be better informed, but they are not; they are just more stubbornly misinformed. Regarding Newt Gingrich’s comments about the “mosque:” America does not take instruction from Saudi Arabia. This Republican Muslim bashing ends up on recruiting posters for alQaida. I wish we could send all religious extremists to some other planet where they could have their holy war and leave the rest of us alone. Much has been written lately about “narcissistic personality disorder.” NPD is characterized by a grandiose sense of entitlement, vicious lack of empathy, haughty and contemptuous body language (nudge nudge, wink wink), sarcasm substituted for humor, and re-
actions of contempt, hatred or paranoia in the face of “others.” The new Republicans have become the “narcissistic presence” in American politics. When in power, they waste resources, both human and financial, and destroy the institutions they are supposed to sustain. When voted out of power, they deny responsibility for their actions, intimidate, assassinate character and generally act like enraged 6-year-olds. Their anger becomes their argument. They don’t come to town meetings — or Congress — to help their neighbors solve problems, but to disrupt and obstruct. Everything the Republicans touched turned to ashes, and now they want you to send them back to power in Congress? Their claim to your vote amounts to this: “We really messed up the country, and the Democrats haven’t fixed it fast enough.” The irony is that President Obama is what used to be called a “moderate Republican,” a breed that has been hunted to extinction. Roger Aikin lives in Bend.

O NFL tight end Ron Kramer ‘a legend’
One of France’s bestknown film directors, Claude Chabrol, shown here in 1990, has died. He was 80 and had been making films for more than half a century.
The Associated Press ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Former Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions tight end Ron Kramer, a nine-time letterman in three sports at the University of Michigan, died at his home Saturday, the university said. He was 75. Kramer caught two touchdown passes from Bart Starr in Green Bay’s 1961 NFL Championship victory over the New York Giants, then posted his most productive season in 1962 with 37 receptions for 555 yards and seven TDs. He was a firstteam All-Pro both seasons. Kramer spent seven seasons with the Packers after being drafted in the first round with the fourth overall pick in 1957. He did not play in 1958, when he joined the Air Force while recovering from a leg injury suffered at the end of his rookie season. He finished his career with three seasons in Detroit, retiring after the 1967 season. His No. 87 is one of just five numbers retired by Michigan in football. He played offensive and defensive end, running back, quarterback, kicker and receiver. “He called me after every loss, and that meant a lot because it’s a lonely feeling to lose when you’re the coach at Michigan,” former Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr said Saturday night. “I’ll never forget that he used to bring our team apples because he remembered somebody doing that for him when he played at Michigan.” Carr said Kramer was a legend, adding: “We’re all going to miss him.” Kramer earned three letters each in football, basketball and track at Michigan and led the Wolverines in scoring for two seasons in football. As a basketball player he scored 1,119 points and was the team’s Most Valuable Player as a junior. He set the school’s all-time scoring record as team captain his senior year with 1,124 points, a standard that stood until 1961. Despite his 230-pound frame, he competed in the high jump in track. “Ron was one of the great Michigan athletes of the 20th century,” Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said in a statement released by the university. The statement didn’t indicate a cause of death. Kramer was elected to the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame in 1971. In 1981, he was named a recipient of the NCAA’s Silver Anniversary Award in recognition of significant professional and civic contributions spanning 25 years after completion of his collegiate eligibility.

Chabrol’s last feature film, “Bellamy” — featuring another giant of French cinema, Gerard Depardieu — came out last year. Chabrol was born in Paris on June 24, 1930. The son of a pharmacist, he said he “completely” belonged to the sort of bourgeois social milieu that would become the fodder for his films — “otherwise I wouldn’t have dared” depict it, Chabrol said in a 1987 interview. The bourgeois “are always amusing, and they can also be very mean, so it’s just marvelous,” he told “Mardi cinema” television program.
Studied law, literature As a young man, he studied literature and law before writing movie reviews in the respected French film magazine “Cahiers du cinema.” He had not yet turned 30 when “Le Beau Serge,” the story of a man’s return to his native village after a long absence, was released to critical acclaim. A bon vivant and longtime smoker, Chabrol was rarely seen without his trademark pipe or Cuban cigar — even on set. He was also a joker and liked to ham it up for the cameras, often making grimaces and funny faces while on the red carpet. Chabrol also acted, making Hitchcock-style cameos in many of his own films, as well as those by other directors. He last appeared in this year’s “Gainsbourg,” playing a music producer in filmmaker Joann Sfar’s biopic about singer Serge Gainsbourg.
McCarthy starred in cult classic film ‘Body Snatchers’ By Dennis McLellan McClatchy-Tribune News Service
LOS ANGELES — Kevin McCarthy, the veteran stage and screen actor best known for his starring role as the panicked doctor who tried to warn the world about the alien “pod people” who were taking over in the 1956 science-fiction suspense classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” died Saturday. He was 96. McCarthy died of natural causes at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, Mass., said his daughter Lillah. During a career that spanned more than 70 years, beginning on stage in New York in the late 1930s, McCarthy played Biff Loman opposite Paul Muni’s Willy in Kevin the 1949 London production of McCarthy “Death of a Salesman.” in 2005 Reprising his role in the 1951 film version opposite Fredric March, he earned a supporting-actor Oscar nomination and won a Golden Globe as most promising male newcomer. McCarthy had appeared in several other films and had a string of TV anthology-series credits behind him when he was cast as Dr. Miles Bennell in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” director Don Siegel’s thriller about an unsuspecting California town whose residents were being replaced by emotionless alien clones grown in oversized seed pods.
Film becomes cult classic In the film’s most memorable scene, McCarthy’s frantic Bennell runs into traffic, screaming to motorists, “Stop and listen to me! ... They’re not human! ... Can’t you see? Everyone! They’re here already. You’re next!” The low-budget film became an enduring cult classic that was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 1994. McCarthy, who made a cameo appearance in the 1978 remake, got a lot of mileage out of the original film in his later years, appearing often as a guest at film festivals and autograph shows. McCarthy dismissed assertions that “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” was an allegory about the communist infiltration of America or an indictment of McCarthyism. “There was no assignment of political points of view when we were making the film,” he told the Bangor Daily News in 1997. “People began to think of McCarthyism later. I thought it was really about the onset of a kind of life where the corporate people are trying to tell you how to live, what to do, how to behave. And you become puppets to these merchants that are somehow turning individuals into victims. It seemed to me to be about conforming, the need to control life so it would be more tolerable.” McCarthy’s long career included numerous guest appearances on TV series including “The Twilight Zone,” “Burke’s Law,” “Flamingo Road” and “Murder, She Wrote.” He appeared in about 50 films, including “An Annapolis Story,” “40 Pounds of Trouble,” “The Prize,” “The Best Man,” “Kansas City Bomber,” “Buffalo Bill and the Indians,” “Piranha” and “The Howling.”
Scholar and author Peter Gubser American R&B pioneer ‘King’ Coleman dies at 78 led humanitarian relief agency By Matt Schudel The Associated Press MIAMI — Carlton “King” Coleman, a pioneer in American rhythm and blues, died Saturday morning from heart failure at a Miami hospice, his son said. He was 78. Coleman was known for providing the lead vocals on the 1959 hit “(Do The) Mashed Potatoes,” recorded with James Brown’s band. According to a 2003 Miami New Times article, Brown had initially planned to do the vocals himself, but a dispute with his record label made that impossible. To avoid any lawsuits from Brown’s label, a Miami producer had Coleman sing on the mostly instrumental track, while the group officially credited with the song was “Nat Kendrick and the Swans,” named for Brown’s drummer. Besides working with Brown, Coleman also released numerous singles of his own during his singing career, including “Mashed Potato Man” and “The Boo Boo Song.”
Coleman also performed with many other rhythm and blues legends, such as B.B. King and Jackie Wilson. He performed at venues all over the country, including the legendary Apollo Theater in New York. Coleman’s son Tony went on to become B.B. King’s drummer. “I can say that I’m proud to be his son,” Tony Coleman said of his father. “I’m proud to be working with his colleagues. He was one of the originals. He was one of the roots, and I’m one of his fruits.” Besides performing on stage, the elder Coleman also worked for many years as a radio disc jockey. He started at Tampa’s WTMP and eventually moved on to Miami’s WFEC. He finally ended up at Miami’s WMBM, where he was one of the city’s most popular DJs in the late 1950s. In recent years, Coleman returned to the airwaves with a nightly radio show on WMBM, which is now a gospel station.

Peter Gubser, a scholar and author who spent 30 years as president of a group promoting development and humanitarian assistance in the Middle East, died Sept. 2 of prostate cancer at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Md. He was 69. From 1977 to 2007, Dr. Gubser was president of American Near East Refugee Aid, a Washington nonprofit agency that offers economic, educational and nutritional aid to Palestinian and Arab refugees in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan and other parts of the Middle East.
Milk for children Among other efforts, Gubser led a 2003 initiative to establish a program providing milk to thousands of preschool children in the Gaza Strip. His relief agency also funded the construction of educational centers at West Bank colleges to offer training in business management.
In 1983, Gubser helped found the National Council on U.S.Arab Relations, which seeks to foster greater understanding of the Arab world.
Books on Middle East He wrote several books and articles on social and economic conditions in the Middle East. In April, he published a major biography of Saladin, a 12thcentury Islamic leader who fought against Christian crusaders from Europe. Peter Anton Gubser was born May 9, 1941, in Tulsa, Okla., and became interested in the Middle East while taking a year off from college to travel. After graduating from Yale University in 1964, he studied at American University of Beirut, receiving a master’s degree in Middle Eastern studies and Arabic language in 1966. He received a doctorate in social anthropology from England’s University of Oxford in 1969.
Early in his career, Gubser was an adjunct professor at the University of Manchester in England and worked for the Ford Foundation in Lebanon and Jordan. After moving to Washington in the 1970s, he worked for the American Institute for Research before going to American Near East Refugee Aid. He was an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service from 1995 to 2003.
Member of boards He was a board member of the Foundation for Middle East Peace, Builders for Peace and other groups supporting humanitarian efforts in the Middle East. Survivors include his wife of 41 years, Annie Yenikomshian Gubser, of Somerset; two daughters, Sasha Gubser, of Denver, and Christi Gubser, of Boulder, Calif.; his mother, Mary Gubser, of Tulsa; two brothers; and two granddaughters.

84-year-old fetes birthday with leap from 13,000 feet Woman fulfills a dream to skydive as her family watches The Associated Press MOLALLA — When Lynn Benson, of Longview, heard that former President George H.W. Bush spent his 85th birthday skydiving last year, her first emotion was envy. “That was something I have always wanted to do,” the 84-yearold said. “I’ve always had a desire to look down on the Earth.” So, as a belated birthday present from her husband, Dick, she took the 13,000-foot leap with her daughter-in-law, Linda Benson, on Saturday. “I thought, I better hurry and do it because I’m not going to live forever,” Lynn said. Linda, 50, who’s always shared Lynn’s urge to skydive, was excited to share the experience with her mother-in-law.
‘Not nervous’ “I’m not nervous, I’m pumped,” Linda said, while she waited for the plane. “I couldn’t think of a better person to do this with.” The two women started their jump with about three hours of prep work on the ground at Sky Dive Oregon, training with skydiving professionals and learning what to expect during their descent, the proper way to land and various safety procedures. Both would be tandem jumping, each attached to an experienced diver’s chest. On their descent, they would reach speeds of approximately 120 mph. Oregon City resident, Tony St. Pierre, 33, trained with Lynn and Linda, and said he was surprised to see the “little old lady.” “She’s more excited than I am,” he said. St. Pierre, who also jumped tandem, decided to skydive to conquer his fear of heights. “If I can be skydiving at (Lynn
Benson’s) age, I think it would be pretty cool,” he said. More than a dozen Benson relatives — including spouses, children and grandchildren — gathered in the viewing area to watch the women jump. Linda’s grandson, Tyler Smith, said he was excited to watch his great-grandmother and grandmother jump, but also was a little nervous. “I thought it was suicide,” the 16-year-old said. “They are the two oldest skydivers I’ve ever heard of.” But, after watching others parachute safely, Tyler decided it didn’t look that bad.
Husband stays behind Lynn’s husband, Dick, said he was never scared by his wife’s decision because he knew it was something she’d always wanted to do. But that didn’t mean he was tempted to join her. Lynn’s son, David Benson, 60, said he didn’t fear for his mother’s safety. “Anyone who knows her is not surprised,” he said. David recalled how his mother’s love of adventure was reflected in her love of travel. She encouraged her four sons to get out, experience the world and see new things, David said. Although her children had the opportunity to travel while they were young, Lynn, who was raised in Seattle by a single mother during the Great Depression, didn’t share that experience. She’s since made up for lost time. With her husband, she’s traveled to several European countries, Japan, China and Mexico. During those trips, Lynn climbed the Great Wall of China and parasailed over the Pacific Ocean in Mexico. David said wherever his mother went, she always tried to learn something new or make a friend. He feels her choice to skydive will create an exciting final period of her life, rather than a “lingering end.”

How music compression works
By Kate Ramsayer The Bulletin
Music is stored on CDs in uncompressed digital files. An MP3 encoder, which is built into iTunes, examines these files and identifies information that can be removed, often because we can’t even hear it.
The extra information for each track is discarded, resulting in a digital file that can be 10 times smaller than the source file. MP3s also contain other info, such as titles and even album art.
Information marked for removal
Comparing bit rates
Final compressed file
A compressed file’s bit rate, measured in kilobits per second, is the amount of information recorded for each second of audio. The more bits per second, the less information is discarded when the file is compressed. Seconds
MP3s can be encoded at a variety of bit rates. The most commonly used bit rate is 128 kbps, which some say is near-CD quality. Others think music encoded at this rate lacks clarity and definition, and recommend bit rates of 160 kbps or 192 kbps to achieve CD-quality sound.
• Television • Comics • Calendar • LAT crossword • Sudoku • Horoscope
Bit rates above 256 kbps are generally indiscernable from the original. The trade-off is, of course, a larger file size. If disc space is not an issue, encoding files at higher bit rates will make for a higher-quality music library.

GREEN carbon calculator offered by the DEQ, residents can see how they compare with state and national averages — and what they can do to lower their carbon footprint. The calculator can determine how much carbon dioxide a household emits after a person enters information like the household’s size and income, the types of vehicles and how much people drive them, what they buy and how much they spend on services like entertainment, as well as stats on the house and its energy use. See Calculator / C6
What’s your carbon footprint? The Oregon Carbon Calculator helps figure your personal carbon footprint in three categories: transportation, housing and shopping. The calculator is at www.deq.state.or.us/programs/sustainability/carboncalculator.htm.

Increasing the bit rate can improve the sound of your music collection By Tim Doran The Bulletin
f you’ve been building a digital music collection for more than five years, it’s likely filled with an assortment of songs of differing sound quality. Maybe some come through the speakers with a more full sound, richer bass tones or clear high notes at the top of the scale. Many factors affect music quality, from how it’s recorded to what equipment it will be played on, and many steps in between, audio experts say. But even casual listeners who can’t distinguish between mono and stereo can potentially improve music quality coming
from their digital music player by changing one setting: the bit rate. By increasing the bit rate in the preferences of Apple’s iTunes, Nullsoft’s Winamp or other music players, you can improve the sound quality for any future CDs imported to your digital collection. And older CDs can be re-imported at the new setting as well. Increasing the bit rate has one drawback, however. It increases the size of the music file, taking up more room on a hard drive, iPod and other portable music players, and potentially reducing the total number of songs that can be stored. See Music / C3
It’s not too late to improve the sound quality of your digital music collection. Bit-rate settings in iTunes can improve what you hear over your stereo but will eat up more memory on your computer. Under “Preferences” in iTunes, there are three quality settings for music being imported from a CD. Screen shots Screen shot
Dropping jaws and stopping conversations in a test-drive
The boss is robotic, and is rolling up behind you
By Nick Bilton By John Markoff New York Times News Service
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Dr. Alan Shatzel’s pager beeped at 9 on a Saturday morning. A man had suffered a stroke and someone had to decide, quickly, whether to give him an anti-clotting drug that could mean the difference between life and death. Shatzel, a neurologist, hustled not to the emergency room where the patient lay — 260 miles away — but to a darkened room at a hospital here. He took a seat in front of the latest tools of his trade: computer monitors, a keyboard and a joystick that control his assistant on the scene — a robot on wheels. He guided the roughly 5-foot-tall machine, which has a large monitor as its “head,” into the patient’s room in Bakersfield, Calif. Shat-
zel’s face appeared on screen, and his voice issued from a speaker. For years, the military and law enforcement agencies have used specialized robots to disarm bombs and carry out other dangerous missions. Now, with rapidly falling costs, the next frontiers are the office, the hospital and the home. Mobile robots are now being used in hundreds of hospitals nationwide as the eyes, ears and voices of doctors who cannot be there in person. They are being rolled out in workplaces, allowing employees in disparate locales to communicate more easily and letting managers supervise employees from afar. And they are being tested as caregivers in assistedliving centers. See Robots / C6

At Mozilla corporate headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., Mike Beltzner, pictured in the monitor of a mobile robot, remotely maneuvers through the company’s building from his home 2,200 miles away in Toronto, on Aug. 16.
For the past three weeks, I have been baby-sitting a robot. It is not your traditional looking robot — if there is such a thing yet — but looks like an extra-large lollipop on wheels. Using this contraption is a little like owning a puppy. Sometimes it wanders off on its own, and sometimes it stubbornly stops doing what you ask it to do. People ask, “Can it do any neat tricks?” The robot I adopted, the Texai, is made by Willow Garage, a technology company based in Menlo Park, Calif., and is designed for
telepresence. In humanspeak, that means it allows me to take control of the robot remotely and wander around an office, interacting with co-workers and gauging their reactions through the built-in camera and microphone as if I were in the same room. And react they did. While I sat comfortably on my couch at home manipulating the controls in a Web browser, the robot at the office encountered an editor in the hallway who had stepped out for ice cream. She stopped midstride, plastic spoon attached to her mouth like someone had stuck it there with Super Glue, and she just stared. See Test-drive / C6

Restaurant gadabout As the ‘World’ stops turning, Season 4 ditches friend at table we honor its supercouples premiere of DEAR ABBY
Dear Abby: My friend “Brooke” knows everyone in town. It creates a huge distraction when we dine in a restaurant because she is constantly looking around to see who else she knows. When she spots someone, she leaves me sitting at the table to go and say hello to the person. If this happened once, it would be acceptable. But it occurs continually throughout the meal and interrupts our conversation. The fact that Brooke is constantly scouting the room for others to greet makes meaningful conversation impossible because her mind is never fully present. I have reached the point of no longer wanting to dine with her although she is a good friend. How would you recommend resolving this? — Alone at the Table, Las Cruces, N.M. Dear Alone at the Table: Have a frank talk with Brooke, and explain how her rudeness has made you feel. If her behavior continues, then socialize with her in places where there are no distractions — like her home or yours. She may be insecure and feel a compulsion to ingratiate herself with others, but constantly leaving you alone at the table shows lack of consideration for your feelings. Also, I find it curious that all those people she knows do not come by your table to greet her — and possibly be introduced, don’t you? Dear Abby: I work with a nice woman in a service-oriented job. She wears a full set of dentures — top and bottom. When she’s nervous, she has a habit of “clicking” and adjusting them. It gets worse when she’s had an energy drink. Personally, I can ignore it. But I have heard comments from customers and co-workers who wonder if she’s “on something”
By Ann Tatko-Peterson Contra Costa Times
— like speed. Should I tell her what people are saying or suggest she use a product to help keep the dentures in place? I would hate for her reputation to be ruined because of this nervous habit. — Caring Co-worker in Iowa Dear Caring Co-worker: Take the woman aside, and tell her privately that the clicking is distracting to customers and coworkers. She may not be aware that she is doing anything. Suggest that she discuss this with her dentist because her dentures may need adjusting — or, as you mentioned, her dentist can recommend a product to stabilize them. She may be more receptive if she hears it from a dental health professional. Dear Abby: I purchased some things at an estate sale. Later, while looking in a piece of luggage, I found a gold watch (with an appraisal of $7,000 that was in the same box) and a string of pearls. What is the proper thing to do in a situation like this? The estate people are long gone, but there was a name on the appraisal. I tried doing a search on the Internet, but can’t locate the person. Will I have bad karma if I keep these items? This person must have family somewhere. — Finders Keepers? Dear Finders Keepers?: If you have exhausted all avenues at your disposal to find the heirs, keep the items with a clear conscience. 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. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
The final curtain falls Sept. 17 for long-running soap opera “As the World Turns,” which debuted as a 30-minute serial April 2, 1956. In its 54 years, “ATWT” dominated the ratings for two decades, prompted a prime-time spinoff (“Our Private World”), introduced daytime television’s first gay male character (Hank Elliot) in 1988 and won four daytime Emmy Awards for best show. It also created some of the soap world’s greatest supercouples. Here are five that “ATWT” fans will never forget.
By Verne Gay Newsday
Holden and Lily
Kathy Willens / The Associated Press
Holden Snyder and Lily Walsh captured soap fans’ hearts with their poor-boy, rich-girl love story. They met when Holden was a stable boy working for Lily’s mother. Their on-again, offagain relationship weathered the possibility of their being related, amnesia, two of Holden’s secret love children, kidnappings and more. Even when apart, their feelings for one another were evident. Together, they had three children: Faith, Ethan and Natalie.
Jeff and Penny As the soap’s first supercouple, Jeff Baker and Penny Hughes were credited with launching the show to No. 1. Their storied romance reached its pinnacle in 1958 when they married on Christmas Eve, and viewers across the country reportedly tuned in, dressed in their Sunday best. Jeff also recorded a love song for her, aptly named “Penny.” Their

The final episode of the soap opera, which has been running since 1956, will air Sept. 17. romance ended when Jeff died in a car accident.
Steve and Betsy The star-crossed love of Steve Andropoulos and Betsy Stewart began with a deathbed promise to Steve’s brother that drove Betsy to marry another man. But her love for Steve repeatedly brought her back into his arms, and upon discovering her daughter Dani was his, Betsy married Steve on May 30, 1984. Their wedding was watched by 20 million viewers, making it the second-highest rated episode in U.S. soap history.
Luke and Noah Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer were named one of television’s top power couples by TV Guide and great supercouples by Entertainment Weekly. They are the
first gay supercouple on daytime TV. At first Noah struggled to accept his sexuality but eventually admitted his feelings for Luke. The characters made history by sharing the first gay male kiss on U.S. daytime television. A YouTube video of the kiss was the most watched the following day.
Tom and Margo Tom Hughes and Margo Montgomery fell in love while investigating Mr. Big. They married in 1983 and went on to become a soap anomaly: They were one of the only supercouples to marry and stay that way for more than 25 years. Their marriage survived affairs, resulting in each having a child by his or her lover; Margo facing murder charges twice and being raped; a legal separation; and plenty of drama involving their son Casey.
Reason to watch: Blair and Serena hit the City of Light in the fourth-season opener at 9 tonight on The CW. Catching up: Season 3 ended in a cloud of doom and gloom and (I suppose) boom, too. Poor Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) thought he was spurned by Blair (Leighton Meester) at a rendezvous at the Empire State Building. After sleeping with Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), he learned it was all a big misunderstanding with B. But Blair discovered his infidelity just as he was about to propose, and dumped him (again). Last we see of Chuck, he is in a Prague alleyway — shot by thugs, left for dead. Meanwhile, B and Serena (Blake Lively) are off to Paris for the summer. What this episode is about: Lights! Fountains! The Louvre! Oui! That’s Paris, all right. B has commandeered the Right Bank, Serena the Left and, befitting the spirit of their favored geographic locales, Serena has become the libertine — dating any guy she comes across — while B stands posed before a Manet, day after day, waiting for a prince charming to suddenly appear. She silently pines for Chuck, but Serena seems to have forgotten entirely about Nate (Chace Crawford) — back in NYC, also eagerly following the demands of his libido. Major cliffhangers will be resolved, sort of, including Chuck’s grim fate.

Music Continued from C1 But Steve Hartwell, lead audio engineer and owner of Featherlight Recording Studio in Bend, thinks it’s worth it. The explosion of digital technology has led to lower-quality music as consumers become obsessed with the number of songs they can collect, rather than how the music sounds, Hartwell said. “It’s the first time in musical history we’re actually going downhill in musical quality,” he said. Hartwell is not alone. For several years, audiophiles and digital music aficionados have carried on Web debates about the relative sound quality, or lack of it, found in the alphabet soup of audio file types, known by their extensions: “aac,” “wma,” “rax” and the most commonly used, MP3.
Creation of MP3s While MP3 became synonymous with digital music players — which were frequently called MP3 players — it actually stands for MPEG-layer 3, a file extension, according to the website for the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, which developed the MP3 audio encoding software built into iTunes, Windows Media Player and others. Think of MP3 as equivalent to “txt,” for a text file, or “jpg,” for a picture file. In the ancient days of digital communication — the 1980s and early ’90s — experts searched for a way to send music over telephone lines. Professors and students at the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany, later joined by others, developed a way to compress the audio files, making them smaller, so they could travel faster and take up less space, yet still produce CDquality sound. For example, three minutes of compressed music could fit on a single 3.5-inch floppy disk, for those who remember floppy disks. Decompressed, it took up a dozen disks, according to the Fraunhofer website. MP3 encoding also saved space on the relatively small hard drives — sometimes 100 megabytes or less — found in personal computers in the early 1990s. During compression, however, some of the information — or music — gets lost. The sound at either end of the spectrum, during the quietest and loudest sections, gets stripped out, Hartwell said. The bit rate represents how much of the sound from the original source gets captured when creating the tracks, according to Apple. But it also affects the size of the music file. An MP3 file imported at 192 kilobytes per second will be larger than a file ripped at 128 kbps. Some of the music players and programs that came with computers a decade ago, by default, imported music from a CD at 96 kbps, or even less. Most personal computers available today come with hard drives measured in gigabytes, so file size may be less of an issue than it was 20 years ago. With iTunes — the free digital music player provided by the nation’s leading music retailer, according to a May report by market research firm The NPD Group — it’s easy to set the bit rate for music imported from CDs. In the Edit menu of iTunes 9 and 10, select “Preferences” and click
on “Import Settings” on the “General” tab. For importing MP3s, it offers three bit-rate settings: 128, 160 and 192 kbps. iTunes also provides different options for other file types and custom bit-rate settings. All things being equal, the higher the bit rate, the better the sound quality.
Why stop there? You can also check the bit rate of the music currently in your iTunes library. To learn about an individual song, highlight it in the music list, go to the “File” menu and click on “Get Info.” The window that pops up will have a summary of information, including the bit rate. To find all songs in the library below a certain bit rate, create a Smart Playlist, which essentially searches iTunes’ music library for the criteria the user selects and returns all matching songs. For example, to find all songs with a bit rate below 128 kbps, go to the “File” menu and select New Smart Playlist. Check the box next to “Match the Following Rule” box, select “Bit Rate” from the first drop-down menu; choose “is less than” from the second and enter 128 in the adjoining box. To make the bit rate show in the playlist window, select “View Options” on the “View” menu, and check the box next to “Bit Rate.” If you haven’t given away all the CDs you imported to your hard drive in years past, you can simply re-import them at the higher rate. If the computer’s hard drive is nearly full, however, adding a slew of larger music files may not be advisable. In a quick test, a file imported at 192 kbps doubled in size over one ripped at 96 kbps. The same file imported using Apple’s compression method, called Lossless, grew more than tenfold in the test. Apple says the Lossless method preserves CD-quality sound while still shrinking the file size over an uncompressed file. Other music players offer similar ways to check the bit rate. Currently, iTunes only sells songs with a 256 kbps bit rate, and Apple will even allow you to upgrade your lower-quality purchased music — for 30 cents per song. But at least they can be upgraded. If you’ve been building a digital music collection for five years or more, you probably have some files purchased from now-defunct online music sites that cannot be played at all. Boosting bit rates will not magically fix the sound quality of a digital music library. The system playing the music — the speakers, the way it was recorded, the type of file — all can have a huge effect on quality, Hartwell said. But on a decent system, which can even be found in many new home computers, he believes listeners should be able to hear the difference between one MP3 file imported at 96 kbps and another at 256 kbps. Improving the sound quality means hearing more of the music’s emotional message. “Music is about emotion,” Hartwell said. “It doesn’t matter what kind. It’s a form of communication. If we start to lose the emotional content ... we’re doing a disservice to everybody.” Tim Doran can be reached at 541-383-0360 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Sept. 13, 2010: This year, you will break precedent and open up to new possibilities. Certain situations need your focus and directness. At the same time, you remain anchored, allowing for an even smoother moment. You will discover that good will heads in your direction. At the same time, your responsibilities increase, perhaps adding additional pressure. If you are single, you suddenly have quite the pick of suitors. You can afford to take your time deciding who is right for you. If you are attached, despite some issues, the two of you are able to flow more in unison. This newfound closeness makes both of you happy again. SAGITTARIUS can trigger you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Respond to an inquiry only once you determine that this person is ready to hear the response. A key person in your life could be overly serious and touchy. You will have an opportunity to clear the air. Tonight: Think in terms of the big picture. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Deal directly with someone who can affect much of what goes on in your life. Your fatigue level is subject to change. You might want to rethink a personal matter. Be careful not to push someone into a corner. Tonight: A talk establishes a stronger mutual base. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Defer to others,
understanding what is going on behind the scenes. Your creativity will soar once you clear out a difficult problem. A boss or an authority figure is challenging. Tonight: Let the good times begin. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Stick to the basics until you get through a certain amount of errands and must-dos. A communication could trigger a long-overdue conversation. The unexpected adds insight and dimension to a situation. Tonight: Opt for something easy, but squeeze in some exercise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Forthcoming news might be more exciting than you thought. There is a lot of excitement in clearing out a matter that could involve friends and/or money. You will gain through your innate abilities. Tonight: Let the weekend spirit continue.

Making your presence robotic A new generation of robots is making it possible to be, in effect, in two places at once. From anywhere with a computer and a Wi-Fi connection, the operator can use the robot to hear, talk, see and be seen, and move around a workplace far away. Early adopters include doctors, technology workers and supervisors. The robots range in size, features and price. Here is a sampling. Vgo (made by Vgo Communications)
Texai (Willow Garage)
RP-7i (InTouch Health)
3'8" or 4'2"
2’6” to 6’0”
FIELD OF VIEW
Text-to-speech; camera auto-tilts based on drive speed; remote monitoring headlights and auto-docking to the charger.
Web-based controls; can use own video like Skype, Google Vid Chat, MSN, etc.
Technology agnostic (can pilot on Windows, Mac or Linux), secure connection between pilot and Texai (SSL and VPN tunnel).

Robots Continued from C1 “Computers are beginning to grow wheels and roll around in the environment,” said Jeanne Dietsch, a veteran roboticist and co-founder of MobileRobots Inc., a robot maker in Amherst, N.H. Skeptics say these machines do not represent a great improvement over video teleconferencing. But advocates say the experience is substantially better, shifting control of space and time to the remote user. “Most of the existing videoconferencing technology is designed for meetings,” said Pamela Hinds, co-director at the Center for Work, Technology and Organization at Stanford University. “That is not where most work gets done.” For now, most of the mobile robots, sometimes called telepresence robots, are little more than ventriloquists’ dummies with long, invisible strings. But some models have artificial intelligence that lets them do some things on their own, and they will inevitably grow smarter and more agile. They will not only represent the human users, they will augment them. The robot is what allowed Shatzel to “be” in the patient’s room far away. From an earlier telephone conversation with the emergency room doctor, the patient’s condition had not been clear. But in speaking directly with the patient, examining his face and control of his hands, and glancing with the camera at the cardiac monitor in the room, Shatzel could assess the stroke, he said, with the same acuity as if he were there. He instructed the staff to administer the drug. “We had a good outcome,” he said later. Dr. John Whapham, a Loyola University neurologist who has helped create several regional networks providing telemedicine with robots made by InTouch Health, says that when he began using the robot during his resi-
Calculator Continued from C1 “The calculator is a tool to help Oregonians who are interested in it understand how they ... contribute to the emissions of greenhouse gases,” said David Allaway, policy analyst with DEQ. “We hope that people check out their carbon footprints, and most importantly, that they go to the ‘Take Action’ page, and they find a couple practices they can take that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and might save them money.” Most climate scientists believe the human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases, like methane, are leading to changes in the climate — from warming temperatures to more extreme weather. And there are a number of calculators or other tools available that allow people to figure out their greenhouse gas equation. Some of the DEQ calculator’s information about carbon offsets — where people pay money to support projects like tree plantings that will make up for their carbon emissions — are out of date, said Peter Weisberg, project analyst with the Portlandbased Climate Trust nonprofit. And the calculator can only give people a rough idea of what their emissions are, he said. “But they’re great for getting a general conception of where your emissions are,” Weisberg said.
dency, he would carry his laptop in a backpack so he could perform consultations anytime. “I’ll pull out the laptop, and when I’m on Michigan Avenue here in Chicago, put it on a garbage can or on the seat of a bus stop,” he said. “You’re live, and you can walk around, examine, image, zoom in and out. I do it all the time.”
Expanding the workplace “I’m very thin in this new outfit,” Mike Beltzner says, breaking the ice in a room of Silicon Valley computer programmers. In the flesh, he is 2,200 miles away, at home in Toronto with his cat. But at this meeting, his face appears on a 15-inch LCD display atop a narrow aluminum machine resembling an upright vacuum cleaner. Indeed, as this robot rolls around the room, it looks as if it could just as easily be sweeping. Beltzner rolls the robot to a large conference table in the Mountain View headquarters of Mozilla Corp., maker of Firefox, a popular Web browser. By swiveling his camera eye back and forth, he can see the entire room and chats comfortably with the assembled team. An hour earlier, Beltzner, director of Firefox, was logged into a different robot on the other side of the building to attend the weekly all-hands meeting. With a pink lei on one shoulder and a jaunty cap on the other, the robot was surrounded by more than 100 young software engineers, each sitting with a wirelessly connected laptop. When the meeting ends, “Robo-Beltzner” — as one colleague calls him — mingles in the large room, chatting. Then Beltzner executes a nifty pirouette and moves the robot, made by Willow Garage of Menlo Park, Calif., to a charging station. Like many other Silicon Valley companies, Mozilla has employees around the world, and in the month since it began testing the system, as many as 10 employees
It’s good that the DEQ’s option includes the impacts of shopping on carbon footprints, he added. An area that opens many people’s eyes is emissions related to goods and services, Allaway said. Things like visits to the doctor or consulting a financial adviser factor in as well. “That surprises people,” Allaway said, but “when you go to the office, it’s lit, heated, (and) there are devices, tools.” The calculator, which DEQ pays $2,000 a year for, was developed from one used in California by a team at the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley. In putting it together, people started by looking at the typical household, and then using an economic model that calculates how much carbon dioxide is produced to create one type of product, said Chris Jones with the Berkeley lab. For example, the high emissions from eating beef come not only from cattle-ranching practices, but the methods used to grow the grains the cattle eat and the transportation at every step of the process. “For each sector of the economy, all emissions of all contributing sectors are included,” he said. “It’s everything.” While other carbon calculators might stick to transportation and housing costs, the model used by Oregon takes a look at goods and services — which, accord-
have logged in to run errands, chat and attend meetings. Beltzner has now used the Willow Garage robot for more than a month, usually four to six times a week to attend meetings and chat with his co-workers in Mountain View. He finds it to be a distinctly different experience from a video teleconference or a computer chat system. “With the robot, I find that I’m getting the same kind of interpersonal connection during the meetings and the same kind of nonverbal contact” that he would get if he were in the room, he said. “It’s a lot easier to have harder conversations when I ‘roll the robot,’” he added, referring to reviewing an employee’s performance or discussing technical issues.
Boss, or big brother? Tom Serani’s boss had grown frustrated that while Serani was on the road, his 20 salespeople working the phones back at company headquarters did not have the same zip as when he was in the office. “The new guys were not doing quite as well,” said the boss, Neal Creighton, a co-founder of RatePoint, a company based in Needham, Mass., that tracks Internet users’ opinions of products and companies. When RatePoint was approached by Vgo Communications to test a mobile robot, Creighton jumped at the chance. From his hotel room, Serani can roll a robot up to an office cubicle back at headquarters, listen in on a telephone sales pitch and offer advice. Still, the possibility that remotely operated robots might be used by some managers as surveillance devices, or as peeping Toms, has made some in the fledgling industry nervous. “I don’t want this technology to be seen as a means of oppression,” said Trevor Blackwell, founder and chief executive of Anybots, the maker of QB, a $15,000 mobile robot that balances on two wheels.
ing to the calculator, contribute to more than half of an average Oregonian’s carbon budget. “What we consider a household or individual carbon footprint to be is the carbon footprint of everything that that individual or household consumes,” Jones said. “It’s not just the carbon dioxide that comes out of your tailpipe ... it’s also the manufacture of the vehicle, the carbon associated with producing the fuel, it’s the servicing of the vehicle, it’s everything.” People can take steps to stem their carbon emissions. The calculator gives estimates of how much carbon — and in some cases how much money — people can save by doing things like changing their diet, increasing their fuel efficiency or reducing air travel. “That really is an important message — that households have opportunities to both reduce their carbon footprint and save money,” Jones said. “So we want to make sure they see what those opportunities are.” The idea, he said, is to show people that they can make a difference with small changes, get them talking with friends and colleagues about ways to cut down on carbon emissions, and take action on both an individual and community scale. “We really want to create social change,” he said.

Test-drive Continued from C1 From the perspective of my computer, it looked as if she were frozen in space and time by the sight of a digital version of me. In defense of my colleagues, the Texai is a little startling to encounter coming around a corner in the office. A 15inch, flat-panel screen with a webcam sits atop a 5-foot metal pole. A large motor with wheels sits at its base and looks like extra-large clown feet. I wheeled past, said hello over the robot’s speakers and watched through the camera as her head moved slowly with my passing, the spoon still suspended in midair. Moving around is like driving an exceptionally large, and unusually slow, remote-
controlled car. The robot is controlled through a Skype Voice over Internet Protocol. Its only requirements are a good Wi-Fi connection and a place to recharge its batteries. From my computer, I could see through two cameras, one pointing directly in front of the robot and one — called the nav-cam — pointing toward the ground and designed to help me avoid obstacles like trash cans or small children. Moments later, I came across two other people in another hallway who were clearly engaged in a private conversation. They were unaware that a digital robot with supersonic hearing had sneaked up on them. (The robot’s motor whirs but is not very loud.) My attempts at robot-human camaraderie did not work with these two. From the robot’s perspective, at least, they looked frustrated and annoyed. I de-

cided to move along. I was worried that if they became too perturbed, they could easily press the robot’s visible power button, leaving me powerless, literally and figuratively. These kinds of encounters happened whenever I took the Texai out and about. Some people looked perplexed; it was as if the robot had a special power to pause reality, leaving people temporarily paralyzed, mouth usually agape. But gradually, people started to interact. During one robot outing, a copy editor spoke up and asked if the robot was there to replace her. I assured her that it would be some time before that happened.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS Gunderson slated for his third UFC fight on Wednesday Former Redmond resident John Gunderson is set to appear in another Ultimate Fighting Championship fight this Wednesday, as part of UFC Fight Night 22 in Austin, Texas. Gunderson (23-7 MMA, 1-1 John UFC) is Gunderson scheduled to fight Yves Edwards (38-16-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) at lightweight in the preliminary card of Fight Night, which will include 10 mixed martial arts bouts. The main event is between middleweight contenders Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares. UFC Fight Night 22 airs on Spike TV and serves as the lead-in for the debut episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 12.” Gunderson, formerly of the International Fight League, won a unanimous-decision over Mark Holst in The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale. Gunderson lost his UFC debut in a decision to Rafaello Oliveira at UFC 108. Gunderson was scheduled to take on Paul Taylor at UFC 112, but Taylor was removed from the Abu Dhabi card hours before it began, reportedly because of a migraine headache. —Bulletin staff report

SEATTLE — Pete Carroll flapped his arms, imploring his new home fans to get into the game. At one point, Seattle’s new coach was yanked off the field by an official after wandering too far out on the field following an enthusiastic celebration. Eleven years after he last coached an NFL game, Carroll thoroughly enjoyed his return to pro football. “He was probably the most enthusiastic person in the place. I got to say his energy was maybe even a little above mine and I haven’t played in that long so I was pretty excited,” Seattle linebacker Lofa Tatupu said. “Pete wants to get out there and hit.” Matt Hasselbeck threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as the Seahawks gave their new coach a 31-6 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Back on an NFL sideline for the first time since 1999, Carroll was marching up and down, almost constantly in motion. The only times he stood still was when he was giving congratulations to his players as they came off the field. And there was plenty to give. Even more than last January when Carroll left Southern California to take over a Seattle franchise with 23 losses in two seasons, Sunday was his beginning. “There are a ton of beginnings, but now that’s over. It’s a nice game, but it doesn’t mean that much. It’s already done,” Carroll said. “To have the opportunity emotionally to enjoy it like that in the locker room with these guys that have worked so hard that have listened to my stuff all this time, for them to feel the benefits and rewards it was very pleasing.” While Seattle could revel in an unlikely romp to start the Carroll era in the Pacific Northwest, the 49ers were already wondering how to regroup as their lofty preseason expectations to dominate the mediocre NFC West took a major hit.

unter Martinez and Kylor Snook are bringing an international flair to the Mountain View boys soccer team this year. The two seniors studied and played soccer abroad last fall. Martinez spent his entire junior year in Aarhus, Denmark, and Snook lived for six months in Pamplona, Spain. “Everything is different,” Mar-
tinez says about the contrast in styles between soccer in the U.S. and Denmark. “It’s the same concept, trying to get the ball in the net, but the strategies are completely different.” Snook’s experience was similar. “Everything there was much more technical,” Snook says. “There was a lot more one-touches, a lot of quick passes. (Spanish players) weren’t necessarily the fastest people, but they played really fast.” While both Martinez and Snook went abroad for the educational opportunities — Martinez was interested in Scandinavia, and Snook wanted to learn Spanish — both say their soccer experiences
helped them fully immerse themselves in their host countries. “They say a great way to make friends is to play sports,” Martinez says about advice he received upon arriving in Aarhus, a metro area of 800,000 that is Denmark’s second-largest city. “Everyone that plays (soccer) is a big dog. There’s no American football contradicting it. Soccer is the biggest thing in the city.” For Snook, living in soccermad Spain was an eye-opening experience. “It was like a religion,” Snook says about soccer passions on the Iberian Peninsula. “Everyone loves it, even if they don’t play.” See Experience / D5

READY FOR ACTION
Women gain a foothold in Formula One everywhere but behind the wheel By Brad Spurgeon New York Times News Service
Buccaneers .. 17 Browns......... 14
One drives a large truck and puts tires on rims. Another organizes an army of gasoline technicians who develop fuel. One runs a department of aerodynamics designers, while another is in charge of a racing team’s 240 employees. They are a few of the women who are breaking the mold in the macho world of Formula One, where, as is the tradition elsewhere in auto racing, they usually
hold jobs in marketing, media relations and hospitality. Although more women are working the technical jobs to make the cars go fast, the one place where they are still absent is behind the wheel. Formula One racing continued Sunday with the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, but it has been 18 years since the last female driver took part in a race, and half a decade since a woman even tested a car.

The championship match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was postponed a day because of persistent rain Sunday, the third consecutive year that the season’s last major tournament won’t finish on schedule. The No. 1seeded Nadal, bidding to complete a career Grand Slam, and No. 3 Djokovic were supposed to begin playing at 1:30 p.m. (PDT) Sunday, but showers began more than 1½ hours earlier and hadn’t stopped by 3:15 p.m., when tournament officials decided to call it a night.

Football • NFL looking into Jets QB Sanchez’s offseason camp: The NFL is investigating a complaint by an unidentified team that the New York Jets violated the league’s offseason training rules during a camp organized by quarterback Mark Sanchez because coaches were present for some workouts. The team says in a statement Sunday that the NFL is “reviewing the matter and has our full cooperation.” ESPN.com first reported that the unidentified team claims Sanchez’s “Jets West Camp” in Southern California in July violated rules when coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer watched some sessions. • NFL looks into Jets’ treatment of female reporter: The NFL is looking into how a female television reporter was treated at New York Jets practice Saturday. Ines Sainz, a reporter for Mexico’s TV Azteca doing a story on quarterback Mark Sanchez, had footballs thrown in her direction by a Jets’ coach during practice, and players later called out to her in the team’s locker room. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Sunday that the league and the Jets began looking into the situation when they were made aware of it Saturday night. • Sooners’ Clay released from hospital: Oklahoma running back Brennan Clay has been released from the hospital after being injured in the Sooners’ win against Florida State.

Johnson closes out Cog Hill with victory The Associated Press
Nam Y. Huh / The Associated Press
Dustin Johnson waves to the crowd after winning the BMW Championship golf tournament in Lemont, Ill., Sunday. Johnson finished 9-under par and moved to No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings.
LEMONT, Ill. — Maybe now everyone will believe Dustin Johnson when he says he is over a summer of Sunday disappointments. First came an 82 on the final day of the U.S. Open. Then came a crushing blow at the PGA Championship, when he was denied a spot in the playoff for not realizing he was in a bunker and touching the sand with his club on the final hole. Resilient as he is powerful, Johnson kept coming back for more. The payoff came Sunday in the BMW Championship, when the 26year-old American was flawless on the back nine at Cog Hill and made up a three-shot deficit against Paul Casey to win for the second time this year. Playing in the final group for the fourth time since June, Johnson closed with a 2-under 69 for a oneshot victory. “To finally get it done, especially after all the things I’ve gone through this summer ... it can’t feel any better,” Johnson said. “I played really good golf today. I didn’t make as many birdies as I would have liked, but I made just enough.” He made three birdies, none more important than the last one.
Tied for the lead, Johnson knew the 17th hole might be his last good chance. He pulled driver and smashed his tee shot over the trees with a slight fade, the ball landing in the fairway and leaving him a sand wedge that he hit within 2 feet for a tap-in birdie. “I knew I needed to hit a good tee ball because it was going to be my best chance of making a birdie,” he said. “I was just trying to cut a drive, hold it against the wind and get it around the corner a little bit. And I hit it perfect.” Equally impressive was the 18th, where Johnson ripped another drive to set up a conservative par. The Pebble Beach winner in February, Johnson has quickly emerged as one of the game’s rising stars. He now goes to the Tour Championship at No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings, with a clear shot at the $10 million bonus. One player he won’t have to beat at East Lake is Tiger Woods. The world’s No. 1 player sputtered at the start and shot 70 to tie for 15th, not nearly enough to move into the top 30 in the standings and advance to the FedEx Cup finale. It’s the first time as a pro that
Woods hasn’t been eligible for a tournament. “That’s just the way it is,” Woods said. “I didn’t play well early in the year, and I didn’t play well in the middle of the year.” Woods played with Phil Mickelson for the first time all year, and Lefty buried him. Mickelson closed with a 67 and tied for eighth, his first top 10 since the U.S. Open. It was the 26th time the world’s best two players have been in the same group, and the record now stands at 11-11-4. “He certainly brings out the best in me, and I enjoy being paired with him,” Mickelson said. Woods next plays in the Ryder Cup, and he won’t be alone in having two weeks off. Two other Ryder Cup picks, Stewart Cink and Rickie Fowler, also failed to qualify for the Tour Championship. Also on Sunday: Tseng rallies to win in Arkansas ROGERS, Ark. — Taiwan’s Yani Tseng won the Northwest Arkansas Championship for her third victory of the year, shooting a 6-under 65 to rally past Michelle Wie. Tseng, also the Kraft Nabisco and Women’s British Open winner this year, birdied four of five holes early on
the back nine, then held on for a onestroke victory over Wie with a birdie on No. 18. Tseng finished at 13 under. Wie, three strokes ahead entering the final round, closed with a 69. Cochran earns first Champions victory INCHEON, South Korea — Russ Cochran won the Songdo Championship for his first Champions Tour victory, beating Fred Funk with a birdie on the first playoff hole. Cochran, the 51-year-old left-hander who won the 1991 Western Open for his lone PGA Tour title, closed with a 6-under 66 to match Funk (68) at 12 under at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. Tom Pernice Jr. (67) was third at 11 under. Kaymer takes KLM Open title HILVERSUM, Netherlands — PGA Championship winner Martin Kaymer won the KLM Open, closing with a 4-under 66 for a four-stroke victory over Christian Nilsson and Fabrizio Zanotti. The German star, also the winner this year in Abu Dhabi, had a 14-under 266 total. Nilsson and Zanotti shot 69s. British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen (65) was 9 under along with Jose Manuel Lara (65), David Horsey (68) and Gonzalo Fernandes Castano (69).
Texans stun Colts with 34-24 victory in opener Houston’s Arian Foster rushes for 231 yards and three touchdowns The Associated Press HOUSTON — It took a record day by an undrafted running back for the Houston Texans to end years of frustration against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts. Arian Foster, who spent most of last season on the practice squad, ran for a team record 231 yards and scored three touchdowns to carry the Texans to a 34-24 victory over the defending AFC champion Colts on Sunday. “Coming into the league, you don’t know what to expect, especially if you are not heralded and there’s not a lot of publicity,” Foster said. “You see guys like Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub and the way they carry themselves, and you try to mimic it and make your own personality. I feel privileged to be here.” Foster had the NFL’s secondbest opening weekend rushing performance since 1933, topped only by Buffalo’s O.J. Simpson’s 250 in 1973 against New England. He also surpassed Domanick Davis’ team record of 158 yards, set in 2004 at Jacksonville. The Texans (1-0) ran for a franchise record 257 yards and backed up their bold talk in the offseason that they were ready to challenge Indianapolis. The Colts came into the game with 15 wins in 16 games in the series, including rallying from 17 points down in the previous two meetings in Houston. “We had to have patience,” Foster said. “It didn’t feel like I was going to be able to get going early, but you keep pounding and pounding, and they start getting a little tired and we start getting a little tired. It’s a test of wills.” Foster, acquired by the Texans last summer, had 33 carries in gaining the most yards by a Colts’ opponent. “We failed to rise to the occasion, which we don’t normally do,” Colts linebacker Clint Session said. “We normally get out of these kinds of games, but we couldn’t do it.” Manning completed 40 of 57 passes for 433 yards and three touchdowns, the fourth-highest opening weekend passing yards total since 1933, and three touchdowns. He threw a 10-yard TD pass to Dallas Clark with 4:52 left to cut Houston’s lead to 27-17. But Foster ran for 41 yards on the Texans’ next series and capped his day with an 8-yard TD run. The Texans ranked 30th in rushing last season, and building a ground attack was a focal point at training camp. Foster beat out Steve Slaton for the No. 1 running back spot, despite spending the first 10 games of last season on the practice squad. “We heard all offseason that our running game wasn’t efficient,” Foster said. “You can either let it get to you, or let it get in you, and I feel like we let it get in us, and we used it.” Houston led 13-10 at halftime and turned the offense over to Foster to start the third quarter. He rushed 10 times for 49 yards on the drive, finishing the eightminute march with a 1-yard touchdown run. “At halftime, we talked about the key to the game being the most physical team and our offensive line,” Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. “That’s what you want as a coach. You want those guys walking the sideline saying, ‘Run the ball, coach.’ ” Also on Sunday: Packers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .27 Eagles. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .20 PHILADELPHIA — Aaron Rodgers threw a pair of touchdown passes, Mason Crosby kicked a team-record 56-yard field goal and Green Bay won despite a vintage performance by Philadelphia’s Michael Vick. In their first game since trading Donovan McNabb to Washington, the Eagles started with Kevin Kolb and finished with Vick. Kolb left with a concussion at halftime, so Vick played meaningful snaps for an extended period for the first time in nearly four years. Vick finished with 175 yards passing and ran for 103, but could not overcome a 20-3 deficit.

NFL ROUNDUP Bears . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 19 Lions. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 CHICAGO — Jay Cutler threw for 372 yards, including a 28yard TD pass to Matt Forte with 1:32 left and Chicago held on against Detroit. The Lions, who lost quarterback Matthew Stafford with a right shoulder injury late in the first half, nearly pulled out the win but Shaun Hill’s 25yard pass to Calvin Johnson in the end zone with 25 seconds left was ruled incomplete after a review. Stafford took a blindside sack by Julius Peppers and spent the second half on the sideline with his arm in a sling. His status for next week is uncertain. The Bears outgained the Lions 463168, but had four turnovers. Cardinals . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 Rams. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 13 ST. LOUIS — Larry Fitzgerald caught a 21-yard touchdown pass for the go-ahead score late in the fourth quarter, helping Arizona spoil the debut of No. 1 pick Sam Bradford. Derek Anderson hung in the pocket despite taking a pounding from the St. Louis pass rush, going 22 for 41 for 297 yards in his first start as the replacement for the retired Kurt Warner. Bradford was 32 of 55 for 253 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Buccaneers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 Browns. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 TAMPA, Fla. — Josh Freeman returned from a three-week layoff because of a broken thumb on his throwing hand and tossed a pair of touchdowns to help the Bucs overcome an 11-point deficit. Jake Delhomme guided Cleveland to a 14-3 lead before things unraveled for the Browns, who have not begun a season with a win since 2004 and fell to 1-11 in openers since the club returned as an expansion franchise in 1999. Patriots. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 38 Bengals . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady threw two of his three touchdown passes to Wes Welker to lead New England. The season-opening victory came just three days after Brady was unhurt in a two-car crash then agreed to a contract making him the NFL’s highest paid player. Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens combined for 19 receptions for 212 yards and a touchdown for the Bengals, but their impact fell short of the hype that accompanied their partnership. Giants . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31 Panthers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 18 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants opened their new $1.6 billion home by beating the Panthers with a big second half. Trailing 16-14 at halftime, the Giants surged behind second-year receiver Hakeem Nicks, who caught his third touchdown pass from Eli Manning. Ahmad Bradshaw set up his own 4-yard TD run in the fourth quarter with a 39-yard romp that provided the cushion New York needed to get some revenge on Carolina. Jaguars . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 Broncos . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — David Garrard threw three touchdown passes, two to tight end Marcedes Lewis, and Jacksonville won a game the team called
one of the most important in franchise history. Garrard completed 16 of 21 passes for 170 yards. A big chunk of those went to Mike Thomas, who caught six passes for 89 yards. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 98 yards. The Jaguars, coming off a 7-9 season in which they blacked out nine of 10 home games, needed to get off to a good start to keep fans in the seats and eliminate more talk about relocation. Steelers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 15 Falcons. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9 PITTSBURGH — Rashard Mendenhall ran 50 yards for a touchdown 2:35 into overtime and the Steelers overcame a shaky start by replacement quarterback Dennis Dixon and a missed field goal attempt late in regulation. With the Steelers leaning heavily on their running game and defense without suspended star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Mendenhall carried 22 times for 120 yards and the game’s only touchdown. Pittsburgh appeared ready to win it with 39 seconds left in the fourth quarter, but Jeff Reed, who has nine career game-winning kicks, was wide right on a 40-yard attempt. Dolphins. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 15 Bills . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Linebacker Karlos Dansby and Miami’s new-look defense provided the Dolphins with the quick start they were looking for. Dansby, Miami’s top offseason free-agent addition, had a sack and eight tackles in helping the Dolphins limit the Bills to 166 yards on offense. Ronnie Brown scored on a 1-yard plunge and Dan Carpenter hit field goals from 32 and 43 yards in allowing Miami to open the season with a win for the first time in five years. Chad Henne completed 21 of 34 passes for 182 yards for Miami. Titans . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 38 Raiders. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 13 NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Chris Johnson ran for 142 yards and two touchdowns, Vince Young threw for two TDs and Javon Ringer had a TD, and the Titans avoided any comparisons to last year’s 0-6 start with a seasonopening rout. Oakland led 3-0 early after a Young fumble. Tennessee answered with 24 straight points to take control. The Titans also sacked new Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell four times and forced two turnovers they turned into 10 points. Redskins . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .13 Cowboys. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .7 LANDOVER, Md. — DeAngelo Hall returned a fumble 32 yards for a touchdown to end the first half, and Washington survived an end-of-game penalty to hold off Dallas. Hall helped forced a fumble by Tashard Choice, scooped up the ball and somersaulted into the end zone for Washington’s only touchdown, making both Donovan McNabb and coach Mike Shanahan successful in their Redskins debuts. The Cowboys had a chance to win on the final play when Tony Romo scrambled to find Roy Williams open for a touchdown, but Alex Barron was called for holding — Dallas’ 12th penalty of the game. McNabb completed 15 of 32 passes for 171 yards for the Redskins. Romo was 31 for 41 for 282 yards for the Cowboys.

Lee (11-8) didn’t give up a hit for 5 1⁄3 innings, facing the minimum in that stretch. Both hits and the lone run came in the sixth inning.

Boise State takes day off, but gets stung by James Madison By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press
Every game counts. That’s what the people who push the Bowl Championship Series like to tell college football fans — and they’re right. But is it really a good thing that James Madison’s upset of Virginia Tech in September could determine which teams play for the national championship in January? The big story While No. 3 Boise State had a week off to bask in the glow of its dramatic victory against Virginia Tech last Monday night in Landover, Md., the Broncos’ national title hopes were taking a beating in Blacksburg. James Madison, a very good FCS team that won a national title in 2004, pulled off the biggest upset of a Saturday filled with marquee games, knocking off the Hokies 21-16 at Lane Stadium. “It was like a dream come true when the clock hit zero,” cornerback Leavander Jones said. “It was like, ‘Oh my God, we did it!’ ” And back in Idaho, the Boise State Broncos and their fans must have had a similar reaction, just replace the joy with dismay. While James Madison provided further evidence of increased parity in college football, how the gap between the haves and the have nots is not as wide as it once was, the Dukes were undermining the team that has done more than any other to prove that point in recent seasons. Yes, the irony is James Madison hurt Boise State’s chances to play in the national championship game by taking the luster off what the Broncos figured would be their crowning achievement this season — a victory against a Virginia Tech team expected to be highly ranked. More than anything else, the Broncos’ strength of schedule has held them back as they’ve piled up victories and Western Athletic Conference championships over the last decade. Even with a victory against a top-notch Virginia Tech team, by the time this season is over, Boise State’s schedule won’t be nearly as tough as those played by teams such as Alabama and Ohio State. Fresno State, Nevada and Hawaii just don’t stack up to Florida, Auburn and LSU. Or Wisconsin, Penn State and Iowa. For Boise State to have any chance to reach the BCS championship game for the first time, the Broncos must have a better record than the champions from the Big Ten, Southeastern Conference, Big 12 and Pac-10. That was true even before Virginia Tech lost. If Boise State is the only undefeated team at the end of the regular season, or one of two without a loss, it has a shot. But even in that scenario, regularseason perfection might not be enough for Boise State — again. That’s where James Madison could impact the Broncos’ chances. There are still many who believe that if a team such as Alabama, Ohio State, Texas or Oregon finishes with one loss, it would deserve a spot in the title game over an unbeaten Boise State.

James Madison players, from left, Josh Wells, Chad Byers, and Jordon Stanton celebrate after defeating 13th-ranked Virginia Tech 21-16 in an NCAA football game at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va., Saturday.
‘Bama, Ohio State top AP poll; Ducks No. 5 NEW YORK — The combination of impressive victories by Alabama and Ohio State and a stunning loss by Virginia Tech led to Boise State losing all but one of its first-place votes in the AP Top 25. The Broncos were still No. 3, behind the top-ranked Tide and No. 2 Buckeyes in the poll released Sunday, but the gap has widened. Alabama received 52 first-place votes and 1,466 points. Ohio State had five first-place votes and 1,410 points and Boise State received one and 1,306. TCU remained fourth and Oregon jumped two spots to No. 5 after winning 48-13 at Tennessee. Michigan moved into the rankings for the first time this season at No. 20 after its dramatic 28-24 victory at Notre Dame. After Boise State beat Virginia Tech last week in Landover, Md., the Broncos received eight first-place votes from the media panel and were only 13 points behind No. 2 Ohio State. Some of the luster came off the Broncos’ big nonconference victory when Virginia Tech was upset Saturday by James Madison, which plays in Division I’s second tier. Add to that the Buckeyes’ 36-24 victory against Miami in Columbus, Ohio, and the Crimson Tide’s 24-3 win against Penn State in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and the top of the poll looks more like it did at the start of the season. In the USA Today coaches’ poll, the top five was Alabama, Ohio State, Boise State, Texas and TCU. Texas dropped a spot to No. 6 in The Associated Press poll and received one first-place vote. Oklahoma moved up three spots to No. 7 after beating Florida State, 47-17. Nebraska, Iowa and Florida rounded out the first 10. No. 11 Wisconsin was followed by Arkansas, South Carolina, Utah and LSU. Another Southeastern Conference team, Auburn, was No. 16, giving the SEC six ranked teams, more than any other league. No. 17 Miami slipped five spots and No. 18. Southern California dropped two after beating Virginia 17-14. Stanford moved up six spots to No. 19 after shutting out UCLA 35-0 at the Rose Bowl. Michigan was followed by West Virginia, Penn State, which slipped four spots, and three teams that were unranked last week — No. 23 Houston, No. 24 Arizona and No. 25 Oregon State. — The Associated Press
ban said as much Saturday on ESPN, when he made the point that teams with more difficult paths to the title game should be rewarded. Since the Bowl Championship Series is set up to be the ultimate exercise in the art of splitting hairs, giving only two of the 120 teams a chance to play for the national championship, the slightest blemish on the Broncos could lock them out of the title game. You can already hear the complaints coming from SEC, Big Ten and Big 12 country: ‘How can a team play for the national title if its best victory
came against an opponent that lost to a I-AA team?’ Whether it’s even a fair point is debatable. Kansas lost to North Dakota State of the FCS to open the season, then beat Georgia Tech on Saturday. Strange things happen. After losing to Appalachian State in 2007, Michigan went on to beat Florida in a bowl game. Virginia Tech might not lose another game. But with the BCS, there can be no flukes. Every action must have a reaction, no matter how impossible it is to measure. So we’re left with the possibility that James Madison could
knock Boise State out of the national championship game — and that’s just silly. Michigan men Saturday was a great day for Michigan quarterbacks past and present. After Denard Robinson put on one of the greatest shows in the illustrious history of Michigan football, with 502 total yards in a 28-24 victory against Notre Dame, a couple of former Wolverines also put up huge numbers. Ryan Mallett, who transferred out of Michigan after coach Rich Rodriguez was hired to replace Lloyd Carr, passed for 400 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 12 Arkansas to a 31-7 victory against Louisiana-Monroe. Steven Threet, who started for Michigan in Rodriguez’s first season but didn’t really fit the spread offense and transferred out, threw for 391 yards and three touchdowns in Arizona State’s 41-20 win against Northern Arizona. In case you missed it San Diego State is 2-0 for the first time in 16 years. The Aztecs, under secondyear coach Brady Hoke, beat New Mexico State 41-21 on Saturday night behind Ronnie Hillman’s 150 yards rushing and four touchdowns. The win snapped a 14-game losing streak in nonconference road games for the Aztecs, who beat Nicholls State, an FCS team in their opener. The competition hasn’t exactly been BCS-worthy and it’s gets much tougher this week when the Aztecs visit Missouri. But San Diego State hasn’t had a winning season since 1998, so even the slightest glimmer of hope is a big deal. Looking ahead Not every Saturday can be a monster. The slate next week has no marquee matchup, but plenty of intriguing games nonetheless, including three top-10 teams hitting the road: No. 10 Florida is at Tennessee; No. 9 Iowa travels to No. 24 Arizona; and No. 6 Texas visits Texas Tech.
BASKETBALL: WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Thanassis Stavrakis / The Associated Press
USA’s Chauncey Billups, left, and Kevin Durant applaud during the medal ceremony after the final of the World Basketball Championship between Turkey and the USA, Sunday in Istanbul. USA won the final 81-64.
ISTANBUL — Kevin Durant beamed as he listened to his national anthem, which hadn’t been played at the end of the world championship in 16 years. And that was no “B-Team” standing beside him on the center of the medals platform. It was the best team in the world. The United States won its first world championship since 1994 on Sunday, beating Turkey 81-64 behind another sensational performance from the tournament MVP. Durant scored 28 points, setting a record along the way for most in the tournament by a U.S. player. He left the court with 42 seconds remaining and shared a long hug with coach Mike Krzyzewski, who finally won the world title after his previous two attempts ended with bronze medals. “Our only option was to come out here and
get a gold, and it feels really good to bring this back home to the States,” Durant said. Lamar Odom added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Americans, who won gold in the worlds for the fourth time, doing so with a team that was no sure thing after coming to Turkey without the superstars from its Olympic gold medal team. Also on Sunday: Lithuania. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .99 Serbia . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .88 ISTANBUL — Linas Kleiza scored 33 points to help Lithuania win its first world basketball championship medal with a victory over Serbia in the third-place game. Kleiza, who plays for the Toronto Raptors, scored 12 points during a 22-12 run — including 15 consecutive points — that put Lithuania ahead 48-38 heading to halftime. Novica Velickovic scored 18 points for Serbia.
Continued from D1 After starting the year with a lower-level club, Martinez was asked to try out for a team in one of the higher-level leagues. Following a two-week trial period with the club, Martinez earned a spot with a team in the more advanced league, a squad that, according to Martinez, included several members who also played for Denmark’s under-18 national team. “They’re pretty big guys, who maybe lack some speed, but are good (at) passing,” Martinez says. “The biggest (challenge) for me was the passing and the language barrier.” He compares Danish football with the speedy style of play made popular by Brazil. “It’s slower, with precision passing, working your way to the goal with a finish off a cross,” he explains. “It’s very technical.” Like Martinez, Snook did not plan to give up soccer while he studied overseas. “I knew Spain loved soccer,” says Snook, who was in Pamplona from August 2009 to February of this year. “I figured I’d pick up (a team) when I went over there.” After a couple weeks of school in Pamplona, Snook made friends who invited him to try out for their local club team. With America’s reputation as something less than a world soccer power, Snook says he surprised his coaches and teammates. “They had no idea,” Snook says with a laugh. “(The Spanish) portray American soccer players as not very good since it’s not our main sport. When I came out … it definitely surprised them in a good way.” Back home for their senior year, Martinez and Snook both
Carroll Continued from D1 Coach Mike Singletary was instantly questioned about the future of Alex Smith as quarterback. Smith threw for 244 yards, but tossed two costly interceptions and failed to lead San Francisco to touchdowns in the first quarter when Seattle’s offense couldn’t stay on the field. “I want very much to tell Pete Carroll, ‘thank you very much for kicking our tails,’ ” Singletary said. “It was good medicine and we’re going to take it. We’ll go from there.” Seattle went 1½ quarters with just seven offensive plays for 11 yards, including an interception on the first play from scrimmage. Then Hasselbeck got started. He completed 10 of his next 11 throws as Seattle abandoned an ineffective run game and used Hasselbeck’s arm. He finished 18 of 23 for 170 yards and touchdowns of 13 yards to Deon Butler and 3 yards to Deion Branch. He also bootlegged and sprinted for a 1-yard TD run in the second quarter that gave Seattle a 7-6 lead. The ball from his touchdown run ended up in the hands of Carroll after the game, a souvenir to acknowledge his first victory with Seattle. “Those don’t come around very often,” Hasselbeck said of the sixth rushing TD in his career and first since 2005. “Hopefully
hope to help Mountain View return to the state final — an experience the two missed when they were abroad last season. “It was the miracle season,” Martinez says about the Cougars’ run through the Class 5A state playoffs last year. “When we knocked off Bend in the semifinals, I was in shock. I listened to the championship game online and my buddy Cam (Riemhofer) scores two goals in 30 seconds.” Two of 10 seniors on Mountain View’s 2010 roster, Martinez and Snook bring a level of maturity to the Cougars after their experiences away from home. “It was a great experience for them,” says Mountain View coach Chris Rogers. “They saw that you can be a stud player in America, but over there you’re a sub.” “You have to fight and claw to get that starting spot or even time on the field over there,” Rogers adds. “It’s a big learning experience.” Despite missing a shot at a state title, neither Martinez nor Snook has any regrets about spending their junior year in a foreign land. “I was so ready for an experience to try something new,” Martinez says. “It went by so fast.” Snook echoes Martinez’s sentiments. “Everything (in Spain) was so much more relaxed,” Snook says. “No one is ever in a huge rush. It’s good. You feel less stressed, like you don’t have to use every minute of the day. “As far as soccer goes, it was hard to adjust,” Snook says about the different style of play in Spain. “But not as hard as adjusting to the people here again.” Beau Eastes can be reached at 541-383-0305 or at beastes@ bendbulletin.com.
that’s the first of many for him.” Jordan Babineaux and Marcus Trufant each intercepted Smith and Seattle’s defense held San Francisco to six points on three possessions inside the Seattle 10. Trufant returned his interception 32 yards for a touchdown early in the second half to give the Seahawks a 21-6 lead. Smith started nine of 10 passing, then missed 12 of his next 21 throws. The questions of how in sync San Francisco’s offense would be considering both Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis and receiver Michael Crabtree missed the entire unbeaten preseason, were raised again. Crabtree looked at Smith after the pair failed to connect on two throws in the third quarter, the second returned by Trufant. Smith finished 26 of 45 for 225 yards. Davis had eight catches for 73 yards a day after signing a five-year extension with San Francisco. “(Mike) pointed that out. He said, ‘you can’t expect to be out then come back the first week and get the chemistry together. It takes time. It is timing, you have to trust one another,’ ” Davis said. “I’m not going to dwell on it. I’m going to keep encouraging the guys to keep their heads up.”

Alonso wins Italian GP, Button second By Paul Logothetis The Associated Press
mographics of female applicants. Martin Whitmarsh, director of McLaren Mercedes, said, “If you go back 30-odd years to when I went to university and studied engineering, the one thing I have to say is that in the engineering faculty there were no girls. “Within McLaren Racing at the moment, I think we probably have no more than 2 percent of our engineers are female. I haven’t done the analysis of what percentage of applicants are women, but it probably isn’t greatly skewed. I think that we probably have only 2 percent of the applicants are women.” “Engineering is slightly machismo,” he added. “Motor engineering is more machismo, racing cars even more machismo.” Women sometimes constitute 40 percent of spectators, depending on the race. But Kate Walker, who reports for a website specializing in women in motor sports, Girlracer.co.uk, said that she had felt uncomfortable as a spectator at one race she attended alone because there were so few women. Some question whether women are physically capable of handling a Formula One car, which submits drivers to huge G-forces in cornering and braking. Heikki Kovalainen, a driver at the Lotus team, said that a woman would not be strong enough. “It’s all the training you have to do to remain in peak condition,” he said. Whitmarsh agreed. “I don’t know how many women want 22-inch necks,” he said. “Imagine the weight of your head, plus a helmet, multiplied by five. Just braking you are forced five times your body weight in a harness.” But Legge, who was the last woman to test drive a Formula One car, laughed off such notions. “It is much easier to drive than a ChampCar,” she said, referring to the former open-wheel series in the United States in which she drove in 2006 and 2007 before it folded. “The forces thing and the strength thing is absolutely 110 percent, categorical rubbish.” She said the ChampCar did not have the cornering G-forces on the neck but that the braking and accelerating was the same. She added that power steering and other drivers’ aids made it physically easier to drive a Formula One car. Bernie Ecclestone, the promoter of the series, has frequently expressed a desire to have a female driver, particularly for the marketing value. “It would be interesting to have the equal opportunity, the equal car, no politics, nobody’s controlling situation, and then we would see how quick we really are,” Legge said. “The problem is that no team wants to be the first to hire one, and to risk looking stupid if the girl can’t finish the race. We just need to be given the opportunity.”
to have Fernando behind you,” defending world champion Button said. “I spent the whole time looking in my mirrors trying to judge how far Fernando was behind.” Webber started poorly for the second straight race but Hamilton fared even worse. He exited before the halfway point of his first lap after bumping with Massa as the pair jostled for third with the McLaren driver’s
front right wheel damaged. “I only have myself to blame,” Hamilton said. “I tried my best and some things just don’t go your way.” Webber easily passed Vettel on the 21st lap to sit seventh even though his German teammate was lapping faster. But Vettel, who had started sixth, eventually got past and worked his way up the field to recover from the Belgian GP, where
Hamlin takes top seed in Chase By Jenna Fryer
The Associated Press
RICHMOND, Va. — Denny Hamlin faced adversity before he even had a chance to live up to his billing as the popular pick to unseat Jimmie Johnson as Sprint Cup champion. He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game in January, just a few weeks before the start of the season, to raise questions about his physical Denny Hamlin ability to compete at NASCAR’s highest level. When he stumbled out of the gate with a series of confidence-testing poor finishes, he was hit with the snickering from naysayers who never believed he had a title run in him from the beginning. So when he announced in March he’d undergo immediate surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament, his championship chances were officially dismissed. Only Hamlin refused to fade. He instead rattled off five wins in 10 races — four of which came after his surgery — and revived his title chances. And even after he cooled off over the summer, he turned it up as he closed in on the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Locked into a tie with Johnson for the top seed in the Chase, Hamlin claimed sole possession Saturday night with a dominating win at his home track, Richmond International Raceway. It came a week after he had the car to beat in Atlanta until an engine failure dropped him to a last-place finish, and the Richmond win pushed him into the points lead for the first time in his career. “We’re tough right now,” Hamlin said after his seriesbest sixth win. “We’ve got the most wins and hopefully that will carry us for the rest of the season. At this point, I’d say we could win at all of (the final 10 tracks). Never through the course of my career had I felt that anywhere I show up, I could win. “Other than the exception of a road course, and I feel I could run top five there, I’ve never felt like I could win anywhere I went, until this year. Especially at this point now, the confidence level is pretty high.” It better be if he plans on being the last man standing at
the end of the 10-race title chase. The last four years have belonged to Johnson, who has mastered the Chase system and been untouchable under this format. Many a driver has challenged him since 2006, but nobody has yet to put together the 10 perfect races needed to dethrone Double J. That includes Hamlin, who won at Richmond last September to steamroll his way into the Chase with a heightened confidence that had him certain he could deliver a knockout punch to Johnson. Only reliability has always been an issue for his Joe Gibbs Racing team, and a pair of engine failures put him on the ropes. Add in a subpar finish at Dover, a track that has vexed him most of his career, and driver error at California, and Hamlin fell off the championship pace and settled for a disappointing fifth in the final standings. But with two wins in the final five races, Hamlin proved that when everything is clicking, he could hold his own. A huge part of this championship run will depend on him and his maturity, which has been questioned over his four-plus seasons in the Cup Series. Hamlin will have to manage the highs and the lows, not get caught up in the hip Charlotte nightclub he co-owns, and successfully manage the pressure that comes from staring down Johnson.

Continued from D1 Giovanna Amati tried and failed to qualify for several races for the Brabham team in 1992, and Katherine Legge tested at the Minardi team in 2005. Women race in some of the sport’s top series, including Danica Patrick in IndyCar and NASCAR; Liz Halliday in endurance racing; and Legge in the DTM saloon car series in Europe. Opinions are divided as to why Formula One is different. Women work in most other areas of the series, however. At the top is Monisha Kaltenborn, the chief executive of the Sauber team since January. At the German Grand Prix in July, she was introduced as the first woman to have taken part in the decadesold ritual of the official Friday news conference. Kaltenborn said the series could benefit from a feminine presence. “There are many things that I think as a woman you see with more distance,” she said, “because you simply probably don’t have that emotional feeling to motor sport and fast cars, and you have a different view. And that is sometimes needed to open new directions here, because we all know some things have to change. It can be an advantage.” Kaltenborn has worked in Formula One for a decade. She trained as a lawyer and worked at the Fritz Kaiser Group when it held shares in the Sauber team. After the company sold its shares, she joined Sauber as head of the legal department, negotiating contracts with drivers, sponsors, suppliers and the Formula One commercial rightsholder and governing body. She said that for a year, one of the team directors thought she was an interpreter for Peter Sauber, the team owner. Lisa Lilley once found herself at the Ferrari hospitality unit serving coffee to journalists standing behind her in a line. She served two or three before she informed the next man that she was not a hostess but the Shell Oil technology manager for Ferrari assigned to Formula One. Lilley, who has a Ph.D. in chemical engineering, attends most of the races wearing the Ferrari team uniform. Because the only Ferrari clothes designed for women are those of the hostesses, she wears the men’s outfit. “It really doesn’t matter in the end if you are a man or a woman,” said Tina Vajanszki, a tire technician at Bridgestone, “as long as you do your job well.” Marianne Hinson, the director of the Lotus team’s aerodynamics department, has worked for Formula One teams since 1999. But she is perhaps an exception. The number of women in technical jobs seems in line with the de-
“I never imagined that it was so good,” said Alonso, who won here for McLaren in 2007. “A very emotional week.” Button made a great start to move ahead of Alonso, who struggled to hold off teammate Massa only days after the pair were cleared over a team orders controversy in a 1-2 finish at the German GP on July 25. “It was all looking very good but it was a tough race mentally

MONZA, Italy — Fernando Alonso recovered from a poor start to win the Italian Grand Prix for home team Ferrari on Sunday and revive his Formula One title chances. The Spaniard lost the lead to McLaren’s Jenson Button at the first corner but regained it after the pit stops to hold on for a 2.9second victory. Felipe Massa of Ferrari was third and Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel finished fourth. Red Bull driver Mark Webber, who finished sixth, leads the overall standings with 187 points. Lewis Hamilton crashed out on the first lap and is second with 182. Third-place Alonso has 166, Button 165 and Vettel 163. Alonso said his 24th career victory came second only in importance to his Spanish GP win in 2006 as it gave him hope of a third world title with five races left. “We made the right choices in the right moments,” Alonso said after his third victory of the season. “With the result we gain some confidence and motivation for the whole team not to give up. (But) we need to remain calm. We need to find some consistency, that would be the key.” Alonso was making his debut at Monza for the Italian team and it was Ferrari’s first victory at its home track since Michael Schumacher won in 2006. Alonso was already celebrating his win in front of fans ahead of the finish line after tying Juan Manuel Fangio of Argentina for eighth all-time. A huge heartshaped Ferrari banner was unfurled in front of the podium before the champagne came out.
he finished out of the points after crashing into Button. Alonso was able to get back in front after the top two pitted, emerging with less than a second advantage at the start of the 38th lap. He held the lead to the end. Button said he struggled on the new tires after his stop. “Everything was going smoothly but then we pitted one lap early and maybe that was a mistake,” Button said. “That’s for me where I lost time.” Vettel confirmed his spot at the close as he pitted to make the mandatory tire change on his last lap. He returned in front of Nico Rosberg, who finished fifth for Mercedes. Webber was left frustrated by a running duel with Nico Hulkenberg of Williams, who cut across chicanes several times as he battled with the Australian driver. Hulkenberg ultimately finished seventh. “We underperformed as a team today,” Webber said. “We could have capitalized and got more points, but we sniffed around just getting a few. It’s a bit disappointing but at least we got some (points).” Spanish team HRT said a radio engineer was being treated for injuries after he was hit by driver Sakon Yamamoto’s car during a pit stop. The team’s unidentified engineeer “remained conscious” and “the situation is under control.” An ambulance entered the pit lane during the 53-lap race to attend to the engineer before taking him to the medical center. F1 now departs Europe to begin a three-race swing through Asia, starting with the Singapore GP night race on Sept. 26.
