ELECTION

Where a deputy’s job gets hazy By Sam Quinones Los Angeles Times

SHELTER COVE, Calif. — Fantasy often mixes with reality in the work life of Deputy Sheriff Robert Hamilton of Humboldt County, the center of California’s marijuana outback.

It happened again a few months ago in the isolated coastal resort of Shelter Cove, where Hamilton lives and patrols. The deputy came upon nine young men tending a marijuana plantation. They said they’d come from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Oregon,

Washington and Ohio. They’d rented a few apartments, then bought a half acre of hillside. They clear-cut the land, put in “No Trespassing” signs and a couple of greenhouses, and terraced the rest of the property for farming. See Marijuana / A8

Thousands participate Saturday in the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on the National Mall in Washington. Comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert built their stage on the opposite end of the Mall from the Lincoln Memorial steps, where conservative commentator Glenn Beck led a similarly vast crowd two months ago.

‘Fake news’ innovators pitch civility to throngs By Jason Horowitz, Monica Hesse and Dan Zak The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the founding fathers of fake news, drew throngs of exuberant supporters to Washington on Saturday for a joint rally that crowded streets, taxed the transit system and flooded the Mall. With midterm elections looming and Democrats bracing for a historic thumping, the two comedians reined in their three-hour show to nonpartisan bits, musical entertainment and gentle ribbing of the purported enemies of incivility. The denizens of the Capitol, visible behind the stage, escaped their usual excoriation. But at the rally’s conclusion, Stewart changed his tone and his outfit. Having swapped a black Tshirt and blazer for a suit and tie, the comedian argued that the rally’s target was the caustic level of discourse in Washington, and its nasty echoes on cable television’s 24-hour news cycle. Stewart said that noisy debate obscured a reality that he perceived: that everyone throughout the country had found a way to work together. “The only place we don’t is here or on cable TV,” said Stewart, putting much of the blame on Washington. In earnest terms that bordered on political rhetoric, he orated, “If we amplify everything, we hear nothing.” Stewart and Colbert built their stage on the opposite end of the Mall from the Lincoln Memorial steps, where conservative commentator Glenn Beck led a similarly vast and homogenous crowd two months ago. That rally, with its religious theme of “Restoring Honor,” had conservative political undertones and prompted Saturday’s satiric response. The two rallies represented two distinct television audiences and self-identifying political constituencies. “This is my comedy channel,” read a sign emblazoned with the Fox News logo, hoisted by Steven Crawford, of York, Pa. The other side of the sign, illustrated with a Comedy Central logo, read: “This is my news channel.” Democratic and Republican leaders argued that the comedic rally either boosted reserves of Democratic enthusiasm, or exhausted it by drawing potential door-knockers away from battleground states, all for some laughs on the Mall. Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., who is tasked with preserving the House Democratic majority, expressed optimism that the rally “boosts energy among younger voters,” adding that “anything that boosts participation among young voters is a good thing generally, and given how they largely voted in 2008, good for Democrats.” Young voters have increasingly turned to Comedy Cen-

Stephen Colbert, left, and Jon Stewart have increasingly become the political news sources for many young voters. tral’s “Daily Show” and “Colbert Report” for political news, but in the days before the rally, observers of the political-media complex sought the larger goal of this unusual gathering: Would visiting progressives of all ages actually take political marching orders from comedians? The question turned out to be moot. In their closing remarks, neither Colbert nor Stewart was explicit in his demands. “Your presence is what I wanted,” Stewart stated simply.

Showing up wasn’t simple, in a weekend that was packed with activities related to Howard University’s homecoming, the Marine Corps Marathon and Halloween. Many rally-goers encountered severe transportation delays. Those who did get to the Mall found large portions closed off by metal fencing, leading to frustration at many usual entry points. Along one stretch, between Third and Fourth streets northwest, dozens of people

scaled fences and portable toilets to get a better stage view. Authorities would not estimate the crowd size, though the National Park Service decided to open an extra section of the Mall that was not included on the initial 60,000-person rally permit, according to Bill Line, spokesman for the Park Service. By 2 p.m., Metro ridership had already reached 330,000 people, comparable to an entire day’s tally for a usual Saturday, according to Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates. As for the diversity of the crowd — the lack of which was the source of much criticism of Beck’s event — Stewart joked that it was absurd to read any motives of racism in a crowd’s demographics. But despite “Daily Show” correspondents dispatched in the crowd to cheekily interview an ethnically diverse sample of rally-goers, the crowd appeared overwhelmingly white. “It’s very white,” said Tahir Messam, a 25-year-old computer expert from Brooklyn, who is African-American and came with Pakistani and Chinese friends. “But most of America is white.”

WELL MAINTAINED AND PRIVATE HOME

SANYA, China — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday made a rare visit by an American official to a Chinese island once a flash point in relations between the powers and pressed Beijing to settle territorial disputes with its smaller, wary neighbors. The Obama administration’s top diplomat also urged Chinese officials to use their influence with North Korea to keep the communist country from taking any provocative actions that might disrupt a summit of world leaders set for South Korea next month. Clinton’s main goal, though, was to seek Chinese help in lowering tensions across East Asia, and she proposed hosting a three-way meeting between the U.S., China and Japan to ease the latest regional flare-up: competing claims by China and Japan over East China Sea islands, a dispute that has soured ties between Beijing and Tokyo. She conveyed the messages in a private meeting with Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo on Hainan Island just hours after similar talks in Vietnam with Chinese Foreign Minster Yang Jiechi on the sidelines of a summit of East Asian leaders. “It is in all of our interests for China and Japan to have stable and peaceful relations,” Clinton told reporters in Hanoi, the Vietnamese capital. The U.S., she said, is “more than willing” to host trilateral talks “where we would discuss a range of issues.” “We made very clear that we want the temperature to go down on this issue,” said a senior U.S. official who sat in Clinton’s meetings with Yang and Dai. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private diplomatic exchanges. Japanese officials have said they would welcome a U.S. role if a trilateral meeting was well prepared, but neither Yang nor Dai indicated if China would accept U.S. mediation, the official said.

Their majorities in peril, Democrats focus on Senate By Jeff Zeleny and Carl Hulse New York Times News Service

PHILADELPHIA — The battle for control of Congress rolled into a frenetic final weekend as Democrats fought to preserve the Senate as their power center on Capitol Hill, trying to hold off a Republican surge that could reshape the political order in Washington. With Republicans in a strong position to capture the House, President Barack Obama on Saturday opened a four-state weekend swing here to rally support for Senate candidates in Connecticut, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, hoping to build a critical firewall to protect the party’s Senate majority from Republican gains across the country.

ELECTION Republicans intensified their efforts to capitalize on a favorable political environment, with Sarah Palin making a last-minute trip to West Virginia to ask voters to elect a Republican for the Democratic seat Sen. Robert Byrd held for 51 years. The outcome of five contests considered tossups will help determine if Democrats retain control of the Senate, according to the latest analysis of races by The New York Times, with Republicans trying to capture Democratic-held seats in Colorado, Il-

linois, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Washington. Should they sweep those, they would still need to triumph in a state like California or West Virginia, where Democratic chances seemed to be improving. The president made an urgent appeal to save the Democratic majority, including his own former Senate seat in Illinois. He returned to Chicago on Saturday evening for a rally in the neighborhood where his political career began, telling voters along the way that this election should not be about him. “It is absolutely critical that you go out and vote,” Obama said here in Philadelphia. “This election is not just going to set the stage for the next two years. It’s going to set the stage for the

next 10, the next 20.” While Republicans continued to expand the battleground in the House, growing increasingly confident in their quest to win control of at least one chamber of Congress, Senate Republicans sought to contain expectations even though they will end the year in a much stronger position than they could have imagined two years after Obama entered the White House on a wave of popularity and optimism. “Our hand will be strengthened, even if we’re not in the majority in January,” said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “It’s remarkable that we’ve hung together as much as we have.”

Ads rally around fear of cuts to Medicare By Jennifer Steinhauer New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The backdrops differ — a cactus for Arizona, some lovely fall leaves for Pennsylvania — but the message, delivered by a series of nervous-looking older Americans, is uniform: Democratic congressional candidates voted for billions of dollars in cuts to Medicare (or, if they were not in office, would have) and let their constituents down. From Florida to California, one of the most prevalent political advertisements this year accuses Democrats of slashing $500 billion from Medicare, the government health care program for the elderly, as part of the health care law passed by Congress last spring. Dozens of candidates have felt the heat. The health care overhaul does seek to slow the growth of Medicare by more than $500 billion over the next decade. Democrats who contend that Medicare recipients will be unaffected by the cuts are not entirely correct, independent experts say. But the way in which those cuts will be felt by the roughly 46 million Americans covered by the program does not quite align with the dark implications of the ads. Older people tend to be among the most reliable voters in midterm elections, when both parties have to work hard to increase turnout. Invoking the prospect of Medicare cuts has been an important and often effective technique used by Republicans and their allies, even though Republicans and many conservative groups are otherwise making smaller government and reduced federal spending central themes of their campaigns.

“We can reshape the Republican Party,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., told 4,000 supporters in a conference call on election night last year.

Tea party’s Senate kingmaker becomes a power unto himself By Kate Zernike New York Times News Service

On election night last year, South Carolina’s freshman senator, Jim DeMint, convened a conference call with 4,000 supporters to declare the next battle: Conservatives had to rally behind Marco Rubio, a relative unknown who was trailing the establishment candidate in the Republican Senate primary in Florida. “His win is going to send shock waves through Washington,” DeMint proclaimed. A year later, Rubio is leading in Florida, having driven his primary opponent out of the Republican Party. Other DeMintbacked candidates in the House and the Senate have ridden the same anti-establishment wave from long shot to likely. And the boast that DeMint made on that call no longer seems so grandiose: “We can reshape the Republican Party.” Financing tea party candidates

and rallying the tea party faithful, DeMint has established himself as an alternate power center in Washington. And his rapid ascent has spawned a parlor game: What does Jim DeMint want? Supporters in tea party straw polls and at conservative conferences have urged him to run for president. Other fans suggest that with several of his candidates poised to win, he could run for Republican leader, making official conservatives’ ascendancy within the party. The role he seems to like best is as his party’s chief antagonist, holding up budget bills he does not agree with and supporting challengers to colleagues he deems ideologically impure. His Republican colleagues say it is his showboating, not his ideology, that annoys them. But with candidates like Rubio and Rand Paul, the Republican running for Senate in Kentucky, citing him as their model senator, his tactics could provide a

Repairs delay Discovery’s final launch for another day Election Day complicates the issue By Marcia Dunn The Associated Press

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Last-minute leak repairs have again pushed back space shuttle Discovery’s final launch, this time until Wednesday. NASA delayed Discovery’s flight to the International Space Station yet another day because more work was needed than initially thought to replace a pair of leaking pipe hookups near the shuttle’s tail, NASA test director Jeff Spaulding said Saturday. The problem cropped up earlier in the week, forcing NASA to give up on the original Monday launch attempt and aim instead for Tuesday. That one-day slip to Election Day — which was announced Friday — had officials in neighboring communities

worried about the massive traffic jams that might result from hordes of launch spectators and residents trying to vote. Spaulding said the latest delay gives shuttle team members “a little bit more breathing room” to get to the polls. Space agency managers had been urging workers to vote early to avoid interfering with work. “We always want to make it as uncomplicated as possible for our team, and be able to get them home” in between launch attempts so they can rest up, Spaulding told reporters. “If that move helps that in any way, certainly that’s a good thing.” Spaulding said the repairs and subsequent leak checks are expected to be done in time for a Wednesday launch attempt. Technicians had to replace two

bad couplings, or attachment points, in the helium and nitrogen gas lines. The parts are notorious for leaking. “Right now, we look like we’re on a good path to get there,” he said. Discovery and a crew of six will deliver a pressurized compartment full of supplies to the space station. Among the equipment: an experimental humanoid robot. Two spacewalks are planned for the 11-day mission. This will be Discovery’s 39th and final mission. NASA is retiring the shuttle fleet next year. NASA has until Nov. 7 to launch Discovery. Otherwise, the flight will be pushed to December because of unacceptable sun angles. Forecasters say there is a 70 percent chance of good launch weather Wednesday. Liftoff time will be 3:52 p.m.

preview of what the Senate could look like with a new crop of conservatives. As for his future, DeMint has written a book with a patrioticsounding title (“Saving Freedom”), often a sign of a senator with his eye on the White House. And his fundraising and campaigning around the country have left him with a network that would be vital to any presidential run. He may be betting that rankling his colleagues in Washington can only increase his stature in the rest of the country.

India: a land of many cell phones and far fewer toilets By Ravi Nessman The Associated Press

MUMBAI, India — The Mumbai slum of Rafiq Nagar has no clean water for its shacks made of ripped tarp and bamboo. No garbage pickup along the rocky, pocked earth that serves as a road. No power except from haphazard cables strung overhead illegally. And not a single toilet or latrine for its 10,000 people. Yet nearly every destitute family in the slum has a cell phone. Some have three. When U.S. President Barack Obama visits India on Saturday, he will find a country of startlingly uneven development and perplexing disparities, where more people have cell phones than access to a toilet, according to the United Nations. It is a country buoyed by a vibrant business world of call centers and software developers, but hamstrung by a bloated, corrupt government that has failed to deliver the barest of services. Its estimated growth rate of 8.5 percent a year is among the highest in the world, but its roads are crumbling. It offers cheap, world-class medical care to Western tourists at private hospitals, yet has some of the worst child mortality and maternal death rates outside sub-Saharan Africa. And while tens of millions have benefited from India’s rise, many more remain mired in some of the worst poverty in the world. Businessman Mukesh Ambani, the world’s fourth-richest person, is just finishing off a new $1 billion skyscraper-house in Mumbai with 27 floors and three helipads, touted as the most expensive home on earth. Yet farmers still live in shacks of mud and cow dung.

Rafi q Maqbool / The Associated Press

A boy talks on a cell phone in the Rafiq Nagar slum in Mumbai, India. The cell phone frenzy bridges all worlds. Cell phones are sold amid the Calvin Klein and Clinique stores under the soaring atriums of India’s new malls, and in the crowded markets of its working-class neighborhoods. Bare shops in the slums sell prepaid cards for as little as 20 cents next to packets of chewing tobacco, while street hawkers peddle car chargers at traffic lights. The spartan Beecham’s in New Delhi’s Connaught Place, one of the country’s seemingly ubiquitous mobile phone dealers, is overrun with lunchtime customers of all classes looking for everything from a 35,000 rupee ($790) BlackBerry Torch to a basic 1,150 rupee ($26) Nokia. Store manager Sanjeev Malhotra adds to a decades-old — and still unfulfilled — Hindi campaign slogan promising food, clothing and shelter. “Roti, kapda, makaan” and “mobile,” he riffs, laughing. “Basic needs.”

Terror Continued from A1 “The wiring of the device indicates that this was done by professionals,” said one official involved in the investigation, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the inquiry was continuing. “It was set up so that if you scan it, all the printer components would look right.” The terror plot broke publicly in dramatic fashion Friday morning, when two packages containing explosives from Yemen and addressed to synagogues in Chicago were intercepted in Britain and Dubai, setting off an international dragnet and fears about packages yet to be discovered. It also led to a tense scene in which U.S. military jets escorted a plane to Kennedy International Airport amid concerns — which turned out to be unfounded — that there might be explosives on board. On Saturday, in news conferences in London and Yemen, and from interviews with investigators here and abroad, the contours of the investigation began to emerge, along with new details of the frantic hours leading to the discovery of the packages. The U.S. officials said their operating assumption was that the two bombs were the work of Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, al-Qaida in Yemen’s top bomb maker, whose previous devices have been more rudimentary and also unsuccessful. Asiri is believed to have built both the bomb sewn into the underwear of a young Nigerian who tried to blow up a trans-Atlantic flight on Dec. 25, and the suicide bomb that nearly killed Saudi Arabia’s intelligence chief, Mohammed bin Nayef, months earlier. Just as in the two previous attacks, the bomb discovered in Dubai contained the explosive PETN, according to the Dubai police and Janet Napolitano, the secretary of Homeland Security. This new plot, Napolitano said, had the “hallmarks of al-Qaida.” Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House homeland security intelligence subcommittee, said federal authorities indicated to him on Saturday that the packages were probably intended to blow up the synagogues in Chicago rather than the cargo planes, since they do not carry passengers. Based on a conversation with Napolitano, he said authorities were leaving open the possibility that other packages with explosives had not yet been found. It was a call from bin Nayef, the Saudi intelligence chief, on Thursday evening to John Brennan, the White House senior counterterrorism official and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, that set off the search. Bin Nayef also notified CIA officials in Riyadh, the U.S. officials said. Saudi Arabia has sometimes been a reluctant ally in America’s global campaign against radical militants. But Yemen, its impoverished next-door neighbor, is a different matter. The Saudis consider the al-Qaida branch in Yemen its biggest security threat, and Saudi intelligence has set up both a web of electronic surveil-

For president, a fine line to walk WASHINGTON — Trying to manage a terrorism threat in the middle of an election campaign, the Obama administration is walking a political and national security tightrope. Remembering the debates over whether President George W. Bush sought to capitalize on the terrorism threat in the days before the 2006 election, White House officials do not want to look as if they are seizing on a potential catastrophe to win votes. But at the same time, they remember when President Barack Obama was criticized for saying nothing publicly in the three days after an attempt to blow up an airliner last Dec. 25. “Every president has to be able to take off the partisan hat and assume the role of nonpartisan commander in chief when there is a security incident,” said C. Stewart Verdery Jr., a former assistant secretary of homeland security under Bush. “The president should be the public face of the response to send the right signals to Americans worried about our defenses, especially those partisans who might be inclined to find fault with anything the administration does.” White House officials say politics has nothing to do with the quick response, and that the scene of fighter jets accompanying a passenger plane from Dubai as it landed in New York on Friday was the result of an “abundance of caution.” “This has been handled just like any credible threat on any day,” Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said Friday in an interview. Responding to a question from a reporter earlier in the day about whether the administration might be hyping the threat to sway the elections, Gibbs said that Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, briefed the president initially on Thursday night “off of very credible terror information.” He said that the discovery afterward of explosives on two cargo planes bound for the United States should “put to rest any speculation that may be out there.” — New York Times News Service lance and spies to penetrate the organization. The tips from the Saudis set off the frantic search for the bombs that eventually were tracked down in Dubai and at an airport 100 miles north of London. Reviewing the evidence, U.S. intelligence officials say they believe the plot was probably blessed by the highest levels of al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen, including al-Awlaki.

Dakota Continued from A1 An oil boom in the western part of the state, strong agriculture throughout and a conservative banking system that offered some insulation from the housing bubble all contributed to a relatively sunny outlook there — and to the state’s 3.7 percent unemployment rate, the lowest in the country. I was there earlier this month, on a road trip that took me from Vermont to North Dakota and its alternate political universe. The first 1,200 miles or so of my journey matched the mood that I’d been told to expect: People were angry. In upstate New York (unemployment rate: 8.3 percent), lawn signs shouted, “I’m mad too, Carl!” In Michigan (unemployment rate: 13 percent), Rep. Dale Kildee, a Democrat, boasted on TV of his frugality with public funds, perhaps seeking to assure voters that he didn’t spend as wildly as those other Democrats. Even in Chicago (Illinois’s unemployment rate: 9.9 percent), the heart of what should be Obama Country, a motorcade elicited more annoyance at the traffic than excitement that the president was in town for a fundraiser.

The Dakota difference Of course, people were angry in North Dakota, too. But for the most part, they seemed mad about how negative the national political climate has become. It’s different there, and the contrast in the midterm election mood helps illustrate just how much the economy changes everything. North Dakota’s sole House seat is the subject of its only competitive statewide race this fall, between Democratic incumbent Earl Pomeroy and Republican challenger Rick Berg. The ads they are running seem to have little to do with the staples of most political advertising today: the stimulus, jobs and the economy. Instead, in most of the Pomeroy ads that I caught, the incumbent claimed that Berg “led the fight” to let big banks share personal financial information without permission. The challenger’s ads, meanwhile, attacked Pomeroy with that most timeless of charges: being too Washington. Some of Pomeroy’s and Berg’s sparring spots do mention health care (Berg notes that Pomeroy voted for “ObamaCare”), but in another break from national trends, Pomeroy has been touting his vote for the overhaul. He has one ad featuring health care professionals talking up their support for the law. Berg’s ads also note how frequently Pomeroy has voted with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and his health care spot takes

Rick Berg, left, is challenging incumbent Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy, right, for North Dakota’s sole U.S. House seat in what is also the only competitive statewide race.

“No one credits Earl Pomeroy with the oil boom. No one credits (Rick) Berg with the oil boom. And Governor John Hoeven has run pretty much on the ticket of ‘I didn’t screw that up.’” — Mark Jendrysik, chair of the political science department at the University of North Dakota the congressman to task over taxes and Medicare. But throughout the candidates’ ads, the economy barely seems to register. It’s not bad in North Dakota, so no one is going to run an ad promising to make it better. And it’s not good for any reason that a particular politician can boast about. “No one credits Earl Pomeroy with the oil boom,” said Mark Jendrysik, chair of the political science department at the University of North Dakota. “No one credits Berg with the oil boom. And Governor John Hoeven has run pretty much on the ticket of ‘I didn’t screw that up.’”

Party labels don’t stick As one North Dakotan told me, the state’s residents seem to identify more as “populist” than as Republican or Democrat. The state has had a solidly Democratic congressional delegation for more than 20 years, but it consistently votes for Republican presidential candidates. A case in point: Hoeven, the popular Republican governor who looks likely to win the race for retiring Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan’s seat, has earned the endorsement of the statewide teachers union, the North Dakota Education Association. Normally, the union would go for the Democrat (it hasn’t, to the best of Executive Director Greg Burns’ memory, picked a Republican since 1986). But as governor, Hoeven was good to teachers, so he’s the union’s candidate. It’s as straightforward as that. Hoeven’s election should be a “slam dunk,” according to Fargo’s mayor, Dennis Walaker. He’s a man who should know about slam dunks: He won reelection in June with more than 90 percent of the vote. In another sign of how nonpolarized North Dakota politics is, Walaker,

mayor of the state’s largest city and a self-proclaimed “closet Republican,” endorsed both Hoeven, a Republican, for the Senate and Pomeroy, a Democrat, for the House. As Walaker explained, he knows Pomeroy and likes him. So, even though Pomeroy is a Democrat, the mayor “went out on a limb” and made the endorsement anyway — even shooting a television ad for him. Walaker said he decided to cross the party line because he thinks the anti-incumbent attitude that has taken hold nationwide is counterproductive, especially for a small state such as North Dakota. “I cannot get caught up in the fact that we’re going to blame the president of the United States for everything. I just cannot,” he said. Most people I spoke with seemed to agree with Walaker. When things are going well in a state, national leaders don’t become lightning rods. Berg’s ads tying Pomeroy to Pelosi didn’t go over well. “I’m hearing a lot more about Nancy Pelosi than I am about Rick Berg,” said Shawn Oleson, a Fargo resident who said he was tired of the whole election.

Experience a good thing North Dakotans explained that they know their small state has enjoyed outsize influence precisely because its longtime congressional delegation — which includes Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad, chairman of the Senate budget committee — enjoys the privileges of seniority. One argument I heard for keeping Pomeroy around is that it would preserve as much of that seniority as possible. “Incumbent” isn’t a dirty word here — it’s a good thing. I got as far west as Rugby, a small town in the middle of the

state. At the dedication festivities for a new wind farm, I chatted with people who had heard Dorgan speak earlier in the day. They gave him a standing ovation and seemed sad to be seeing their junior senator go. They also hoped Pomeroy could hold on, again, because they wanted to hold on to his veteran status and the federal money that status can bring. When the economy is humming along, social issues tend to gain importance. The most overt political event I saw during my week in North Dakota was a well-organized anti-abortion demonstration outside a women’s health clinic in Fargo. Most people agreed that the pressing issues were local ones: development, sprawl, flood protection. And, of course, keeping some measure of influence in Washington. Carroll Berntson, a retired public school teacher, told me that politics are usually kept out of her book club, craft meetings and bridge games — anywhere that a pleasant afternoon could be spoiled. It’s not that people in North Dakota disagree vehemently, she said, it’s just that it’s more polite this way. What sticks out for Berntson this year is how nasty the campaign got. That’s not how things usually go in North Dakota. “I even wrote a note to Pomeroy — because I’m from Valley City — I wrote a little note saying that I was going to vote for him because I knew he was a good man and I grew up in his community, but I hated his negative advertising,” she said. “I just hate it, and I hate that he’s going for it.” She told Pomeroy to skip the attack ads and embrace his history. “You have a good record, why don’t you use that?” she said she wrote. In North Dakota this election season, they’re not angry. They only get angry at you for trying to make them mad.

UNIFY Continued from A1 Soon the groups split up to take shots on goal and scrimmage. Bend High, the only school in Central Oregon that runs the program, has 46 students participating in the class, so many that it has four teams of varying skill levels while most other participating schools in Oregon assemble just one team. About eight schools statewide offer the program. Teams have a maximum of 10 students, equally split between students with intellectual disabilities and students without; five students are on the field at a time, three who have disabilities. “We’ve got it really dialed in,” Tadjiki said. He also said one of the most important parts of making the program work was helping the students without disabilities realize they are not coaches, but players. At the start of the school year, Tadjiki met with the students to discuss their roles. “The first time it can be hard for them to connect with someone different, and a lot of them were asking questions about their role,” Tadjiki said. Seth Platsman, like many of his teammates without disabilities, plays a variety of varsity sports in addition to participating in the program. The 17-yearold runs cross-country and track and plays basketball in the winter. He wanted to spread his love of sports, and thought having “life skills sports mentor” on his transcript wouldn’t hurt either. It’s turned into a lot more for him over the past two years. “It’s creating that connection with kids,” he said, pointing to a teammate he took out for lunch on her birthday. “You do become friends.” Initially, Seth said his instinct was to tell his teammates with disabilities what to do. Now, he said, he’s gotten better at simply being a teammate. Still, sometimes it’s challenging. Seth said some of his teammates can be stubborn, and he has to find ways to communicate. But he said it’s worth it. “It’s huge. We see each other in the halls and give each other high fives,” he said. That relationship off the field is one of Joe Gulley’s favorite parts. The 17-year-old likes playing on the team with students outside of his life skills class. “I like to interact with people

W  B Indonesian villagers return to volcano MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia — Thousands of villagers returned to their homes along the slopes of Indonesia’s most volatile volcano Sunday, taking advantage of an eerie lull following its most powerful eruption in a deadly week to check on crops and livestock. Scientists warned, however, that the notoriously unpredictable mountain could burst back to life at any minute. On the other side of the archipelago, aid deliveries to survivors of a tsunami that barreled into the Mentawai islands one week ago, killing at least 449 people, were expected to resume Sunday, thanks to a break in stormy weather that had grounded planes and ships. The simultaneous catastrophes have severely tested the emergency response network in Indonesia, which lies in the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” a cluster of fault lines prone to earthquakes and volcanic activity.

Ahmadinejad to slash food, fuel subsidies As security forces swarmed Tehran on Saturday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad prepared his country in a live television interview for deep cuts

in subsidies that have kept the price of everything from bread to gasoline artificially low. Iranian leaders have sought for decades to remove heavy government subsidies on fuel and food. Ahmadinejad has been struggling for months to implement a so-called targeted subsidies law that redirects cash toward infrastructure and the needy and away from middleclass consumers. He called on Iranians to tighten their belts and get used to paying more for less. “When subsidies are being distributed generally, the wealth is being distributed wastefully,” Ahmadinejad told an interviewer on state television who praised the economic restructuring plan as “revolutionary.” “Targeted subsidies target the gaps in certain strata of society.”

Somali pirates seize cargo ship; 24 aboard NAIROBI, Kenya — The European Union’s anti-piracy naval force says Somali pirates have seized a cargo vessel with 24 crew members aboard.

Pope warns children of ‘love’ on the Internet VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI cautioned young people Saturday about the presentation of love on the Internet, saying they risk losing respect by pursuing affection being pitched like “merchandise.” “Much love is proposed by the media and Internet, but this isn’t

love but selfishness,” Benedict told some 100,000 Catholic children from throughout Italy. Catholics sexually abused by clergy as children planned to hold a rally today. Organizers said earlier in the week that the Vatican refused to allow them to gather in St. Peter’s Square, so they will hold it a few hundred yards away in Rome. At Saturday’s appearance, the pope spoke about the special role educators have for children. But he made no reference to the scandals worldwide that have rocked the Catholic church: priests who systematically abused children in their care, and pastors and bishops who repeatedly tried to cover up the sexual abuse. — From wire reports

people. She said the camaraderie extends into the school. “When I see my friends on the team, we all say hi,” she said. For Kenny Dailey, participating in the program is personal. The 17-year-old has a younger brother with autism, and he thought the class might help him understand his brother a bit more. “I thought I could see what’s going on in his head,” Kenny said. “Then I got here and I liked everyone, and it’s super fun. I loved it.” One of Kenny’s teammates often rewards him with a hug when he passes him in the hall. “We form really good bonds,” he said. After a teammate scored a goal, Kenny gave him a look and took a running jump into the air. The pair met in the air in a fullbody slam. “Students laugh with each other,” Tadjiki said. “They are able to laugh at one another. Seeing that happen is pretty unique.” Sheila G.

LOS ANGELES — Outside the chain-link fence of Gardner Street Elementary School, Gregory Son and Laura Uselton celebrated, snapping pictures of the silver “Michael Jackson Auditorium” sign that gleamed on the school’s stucco facade. Jackson’s name had been hidden behind plywood boards since his arrest on child molestation charges seven years ago. But this month those boards were removed, and the school, which Jackson attended briefly, has become a place to commemorate the singer. Giddy fans have stenciled an image of his face onto the sidewalk and tied ribbons to the fence. “We’ve been working for seven years to try to get the sign uncovered,” said Son, 32, dressed in a Michael Jackson shirt. “He did so much for that school. He deserved to have his name up there permanently.”

Boulder fire evacuees get OK to return BOULDER, Colo. — The Dome wildfire that scorched 152 acres west of Boulder was “likely human-caused,” according to Boulder Sheriff Joe Pelle. Investigators were able to get into the burn areas Saturday, now that the fire is 70 percent contained, but have not yet determined an exact cause. Authorities said Saturday they believe it was caused by people because the openspace area is often used by hikers and campers. All mandatory evacuations linked to the Dome wildfire were lifted at 10 a.m. Saturday, and residents returned to some 1,600 homes emptied after the blaze erupted near Dome Rock on city of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks property Friday. Residents went on with their weekend as normally as possible when they returned to their homes. — From wire reports

PA I N M EDICINE QUESTION: Is there Naturopathic Relief for Fibromyalgia? Answer: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is characterized by widespread chronic pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. FMS can also present with a myriad of other symptoms, including but not limited to: gastrointestinal problems, numbness/tingling, depression and anxiety. The syndrome does not have an identified single cause often making treatment difficult. Naturopathic physicians recognize Dr. Payson Flattery many co-conditions in FMS including, but not limited to: N.D., D.C., PC euthyroid sick syndrome, delayed (IgG mediated) food allergy, intestinal overgrowth of candida/yeast or specific bacteria, metabolic toxicity, adrenal dysfunction, and underlying chronic viral infection. Testing is generally encouraged as it gives specific information to help guide treatment. This may include a comprehensive stool analysis using DNA probes, conventional laboratory testing, and delayed food allergy testing. Most patients seen at CIM are put on low dose thyroid hormone, despite often low normal laboratory findings, and undergo a metabolic cleanse which includes specific treatment of gastrointestinal pathogens such as candida. Outcomes are generally very good and rarely require conventional medication beyond thyroid hormone. For more information please contact the clinic at 541.504.0250 or visit www.CenterforIntegratedmed.com.

WELLNESS QUESTION: How can I make sure my mother takes her medications? I’m not able to check on her every day.

QUESTION: I see advertisements all the time that talk about conservative dentistry. What exactly does that mean? ANSWER: Technology today is playing a major factor in the way we can ix teeth. There used to be two ways in which we would ix teeth. We would either replace the missing tooth structure with an amalgam (silver illing) or we would ix it with a crown (cap). Replacing tooth structure with an amalgam requires changing the shape of the tooth to accommodate and hold the amalgam. Amalgam can’t be too thin or else it Kelley Mingus, will break and it doesn’t bond to the tooth so the tooth has to D.M.D. be reshaped with undercuts, requiring additional tooth structure to be removed. Crowns are even more aggressive as they require a layer of tooth structure to be removed all the way around the entire tooth to the gum line. Teeth treated with amalgams will usually become a crown at some point. These treatment options worked well when we didn’t have the options that we have today but they were by no means conservative. Conservative treatment to me means the preservation of tooth structure. Although technology is providing us with some amazing treatment options for replacing teeth, the fact remains that nothing works as well as your natural tooth. Technology is now providing us a way to treat teeth without removing as much tooth structure as well as providing the ability to bond the tooth to the illing. These newer treatment options allow us to minimize the number of times a tooth will need dental work during your lifetime, resulting in a more conservative result not just now but also in the future. In my ofice I now treat at least 50% of the teeth that used to be crowns with a much more conservative treatment.

ANSWER: Not taking medications as ordered can cause serious health problems, which is why medication management is vitally important. Unfortunately, many elders struggle with this. Medication management services are Winona Phelps, available through Touchmark’s Home Care R.N. agency. Licensed nurses can review and assess an individual’s prescribed and over-thecounter medications and provide education about how they work together to treat chronic health conditions. A Home Care nurse also can develop a plan of care and set up a medication organizer to take the guesswork out of daily dosing. Another option is moving to a retirement community. If your mother moves into a community offering residential care/assisted living, her medications will be managed and administered by trained caregivers. Touchmark at Mt. Bachelor Village is able to assist your mother and answer any questions she and your family might have. Call us at 541-383-1414.

Answer: Migraines are actually a circulatory problem, resulting from temporarily reduced blood flow to a small part of the brain. This reduced blood supply can cause specific sensations, and when the Zeyla Brandt, artery dilates again the severe pain starts. Migraines P.T. are usually only one sided. These headaches respond to specific medications which address the arterial spasm, and sufferers should be evaluated by a doctor. Physical Therapists can help with the headache that follows the resolution of the circulatory issue. Some of the factors that trigger migraines may also respond to PT, including tension and muscle weakness, resulting in fewer migraines. “Just” headaches may be related to muscle tension or positional issues, and can be extremely severe. These respond very well to physical therapy, which addresses the muscle tension and movement issues that may cause the pain. At Healing Bridge Physical Therapy we often treat patients with headaches, with excellent results. Our private hour long sessions are ideal for treating patients with these conditions.

ANSWER: Many people qualify for a panniculectomy (removal of the lower abdominal skin and soft tissue) and have this covered by their insurance company. In addition, many patients elect to have a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) performed concomitantly, saving them a considerable amount of money and resulting in a more youthful abdominal contour. At Bend Plastic Surgery, we specialize in all types of body contouring and work with insurance companies to help get your operations covered.

grandparents, uncles & aunts have all had heart problems as early as their 40’s. I am a healthy person, exercise & eat well. Should I be worried enough to get a heart scan or am I too young? I am a 38 year old female. tomography scans show plaque within the coronary arteries. Recently, these tests have come down markedly in price ($99.00 at St. Charles Medical Center) and they are quick and easy to complete. They are accurate and well-validated for diagnosing heart disease. In your situation, you really only have one risk factor for heart disease, that being family history. However, we know that genetics plays a large role in predicting individual disease burden and you would benefit, in my opinion, by having the test done. Even if your scan is completely negative, you still need to see your doctor at least yearly for annual exams and blood work as a negative EBT does not mean that you won’t develop heart disease in the future. You will need yearly fasting blood work to check cholesterol and you will need to keep your blood pressure under tight control to help minimize your chance of heart attack and stroke. Maintaining a diet low in saturated fat and exercise are also very important for your cardiovascular health. Kevin Reuter, M.D.

Answer: Acupuncture has a long history of being used to treat the side effects of western medical treatments for cancer. Acupuncture has been shown in numerous scientific studies to dramatically decrease chemo-induced nausea. In addition to helping to ease nausea, acupuncture can help with fatigue that many cancer patients suffer as well as helping improve sleep and decrease stress. Your individual treatment plan will depend on the schedule of your chemotherapy and when you tend to feel the most intense side effects. Acupuncture does not interfere with chemotherapy or radiation and often can help patients better tolerate these treatments. Many cancer patients comment time and time again that while receiving cupuncture during their chemo treatment, they have an overall improved sense of well-being and a greater quality of life.

Water Continued from A1 If approved, this project would provide a significant portion of Bend’s water supply for the next 50 to 100 years. It would also mean hefty rate increases for current water customers, with fee hikes expected to be between 37.5 and 45.5 percent over the next five years. Currently, a typical customer pays about $66.95 during the summer and $36.36 in the winter. But some members of the stakeholder group believe many benefits of the surface water project have been exaggerated when compared to drilling for groundwater. They also feel a recent city cost analysis was flawed enough to warrant further scrutiny and possibly even a change in direction. “This is one of those unique times when you find strange bedfellows seeking common goals but for different reasons,” said Bill Buchanan, a Bend attorney who’s trying to organize the meeting with the city. “Hopefully the City Council will find a way to put this off so they can hear the concerns of this group of interested people.”

Diverse challengers Those who want an audience with the city include the president of Bend’s largest private water company and a number of top officials from conservation groups like the Deschutes River Conservancy, Upper Deschutes Watershed Council, WaterWatch and Central Oregon LandWatch. Representatives from the Central Oregon Builders Association and Economic Development for Central Oregon are also included as part of the group, as is the developer behind Bend’s Old Mill District. Buchanan, of Karnopp Petersen LLP in Bend, said many of the individuals have questions surrounding a recent report that found switching to a well-based, groundwater system would cost between $372 million and $454 million more than the proposed surface water project over the next 50 years. That report was prepared by the firm the city had already hired to do work on the surface water project, HDR Engineering Inc., and its conclusions were largely based on the energy costs of pumping groundwater. It also came to much different conclusions than a similar study in 2009 that found the 50-year cost difference between surface water and groundwater to be $250 million — even though the cost of the surface water project had increased since then, and hydropower revenues were now projected to be less. “I think if you look at the report prepared by HDR — I won’t say that it’s a lie or false — it’s just that it doesn’t answer the right questions,” Buchanan said. “And I think it makes some assumptions that aren’t supported.”

New analysis Working with some members of the stakeholder group, Buchanan said he is preparing a financial analysis that compares the surface water and groundwater. He said this analysis will show that the groundwater option is less than one-third of the cost of the surface water project over time. “We think we can save about $60 million or more up front, and you can buy a whole lot of power for wells with $60 million,” he said. “In fact, you can buy a whole lot of power with the interest on $60 million.” Part of the reason for this difference is because the upfront costs of the infrastructure would have a price tag of less than $10 million versus the $60 million HDR estimated because, according to Buchanan, much of the infrastructure already exists. Buchanan’s analysis also takes into account the time value of money, which basically means a dollar you don’t spend today is worth more now than in the future. He said this accounts for the biggest difference in cost. For instance, when HDR projects that the power costs of pumping wells over the next 50 years is more than $300 million in 2010

Estimate challenged A group of businessmen and conservationists has the following critiques of Bend’s cost analysis: • Increases in energy costs are too steep. • Estimates fail to take into consideration when money was spent (time value of money). • Existing well capacity not properly taken into account.

dollars, Buchanan estimates that when the time value of money is accounted for, that figure diminishes to about $50 million.

Costs and demand There are a number of other places some of the stakeholders think HDR greatly overestimated as well. For instance, Central Oregon LandWatch sent a letter to the city that argued the city’s assumed 6 percent increase in electricity costs — which was based off estimates from the Northwest Power and Conservation Council — was “highly speculative.” The letter did not provide an alternative estimate that the group believed would be more appropriate. Central Oregon LandWatch was also concerned that future water demand seemed to outpace projected growth and didn’t take into account that increased water prices tend to lead to lower use. Due to some of these concerns, the city had HDR perform an analysis on its projections that took into account smaller rises in power costs and less demand. That update to the study, which will be presented at Wednesday’s City Council meeting, found the surface water project was still cheaper over the long run than a groundwater alternative. But Andy High, vice president of governmental affairs for the Central Oregon Builders Association, said there are still enough questions about the surface water project to warrant a delay in a council decision. As one of the people who wants to meet with officials before councilors vote on the issue, he said he worries that the $73 million cost of the Bridge Creek project could affect homeowners and other individuals who are considering a move to Bend. “If they can afford to buy the home but can’t afford to live in it, we’re not growing, we’re not selling new homes,” High said. This could impact economic development in the area, he added, and should be a consideration in finding a cheaper water option that “maybe isn’t the Cadillac, but is the Chevy.”

Conservation concerns Conservation groups are keeping a keen eye on the discussion as well. WaterWatch, a nonprofit group that tries to restore flows to Oregon’s rivers, sent a letter to the city this week outlining its concerns about the project and its potential impacts on the watershed. Bridge Creek drains into Tumalo Creek, which is a tributary of the Deschutes River. WaterWatch is concerned about the city’s plans to take more water away from the stream, especially considering the millions of dollars that have been spent so far on restoration efforts in the basin. The city currently uses an average of around 6 million gallons of water per day from Bridge Creek. In the summer, when demand is higher, that can increase to about 11 million gallons a day. With the proposed upgrade, the city would be able to take up to 13.6 million gallons a day, though city officials say they wouldn’t always be able to take that much in the summer. High water flows can also be seen as a boon for tourism, according to some of the stakeholders. And Bill Smith, the man behind the Old Mill District, has said he supports more stream flows because it can bolster fish counts, and make the area more attractive to anglers and others who visit. The Deschutes River Conservancy also has interests in having a stake in the discussion. While Executive Director Tod Heisler said his group doesn’t have an opinion on whether surface water

or groundwater is a better alternative for the city, he wants to be able to provide input. “If there’s a faction that’s going to get the attention of the city councilors and is going to reopen the book on this, of course we want to be there with our expertise,” Heisler said. He said the Deschutes River Conservancy has had the opinion that the more water that was left in Bridge Creek the better.

Much to consider But whether that’s the best alternative, economically or politically, he said he isn’t qualified to say, and there are a number of

other considerations about cost that need to be made. What his group would be able to provide though are inputs on the logistics of transferring water rights from Bridge Creek to groundwater and ways the city could mitigate the impacts of using it. From the city’s perspective, however, upgrading its surface water system seems to be the only option. Bend must comply with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandate to treat its surface water for dangerous microorganisms like Cryptosporidium by 2012. Officials also don’t want to give up a dual source system that they say provides redundancy should

one fail, such as during a blackout. Perhaps the biggest selling point for the city at this point is cost. City staff is sold on the idea of a gravity system that doesn’t require paying for electricity to operate, and officials remain intrigued by the possibility of generating revenue with the hydropower plant. City Manager Eric King said he can’t say what councilors will decide Wednesday when presented with a vote on whether to move ahead with the surface water project or if they’ll delay a decision until they meet with the stakeholder group. As of Saturday, no meeting had been scheduled. So far, he said the city has

spent more than $1 million on the surface water project, and it has a number of looming deadlines it must meet to make sure the project moves ahead as planned. Some of those include agreements with other agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service to try to coordinate construction dates on Skyliners Road so the city can place its pipelines under the asphalt. “We need a decision from council,” King said. “We’ve been talking about this issue for more than two years.” Nick Grube can be reached at 541-633-2160 or at ngrube@bendbulletin.com.

Marijuana Continued from A1 They were raising 200 marijuana plants, each of which could produce 2 to 4 pounds of weed. One of the young men, Jake Berlingeri, said the pot was for their own medicinal use. He recited the ailments afflicting these strapping men in their 20s. “Well, Matt, he’s got insomnia. I got shoulder problems, a torn rotator cuff,” Berlingeri said. “Those two, they’re not patients. But my boy Trav, he’s got ... ” Behind sunglasses, Hamilton smiled wryly and looked at the plants, labeled for their varieties: Headband, Mr. Nice, L.A. Confidential, Blue Dream, Amnesia, Purple Diesel, Ice Queen, Grapefruit, Blueberry and Sour Diesel. He spent 13 years as a cop in Fresno, Calif., where mere possession of marijuana could lead to a felony arrest. But on this day, he made no arrests. Instead, he accepted a root beer from the growers and told them to display their medical marijuana prescriptions where he could see them. That way they’d have no problems with him. “I’m a realist,” Hamilton said as he drove away. “I know how this is working. It does no good to rip all these plants out or nitpick on fine details when nothing’s going to happen.” In a region where marijuana is not merely tolerated but is a pillar of the economy, there isn’t much a deputy can do but play along with the fantasies that surround semilegal weed: that unemployed 20somethings who buy $50,000 trucks earned the money legally; that supply shops for marijuana farmers are innocent home-andgarden centers; that growers who flash medical marijuana cards are not producing for sale but solely for their own medical needs. “Cheech and Chong cannot smoke that much dope,” Hamilton said. To work in law enforcement in California pot country is to come face-to-face every day with the state’s conflicted attitudes toward cannabis. Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos supports legalization of pot, and law enforcement officials say the office rarely prosecutes small-scale

C OV ER S T ORY (Humboldt County Deputy Sheriff Robert Hamilton) spent 13 years as a cop in Fresno, Calif., where mere possession of marijuana could lead to a felony arrest.

growers, who form a large and active political base here. Nor can Hamilton or his fellow deputies do much about the thousands of unpermitted structures, essential to hiding indoor marijuana plants, that dot Humboldt County like buckshot. A proposition on the Nov. 2 ballot would make it legal for people 21 and older to grow and use small amounts of marijuana, and it would allow California cities and counties to regulate and tax commercial cultivation. The boundary between legal and illegal weed would depend to a large degree on policies set by local governments. A promise by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to enforce federal laws against recreational marijuana, even if the proposition passes, further complicates the picture. So, most likely, Hamilton, 48, will continue to work in a gray zone. A year into his assignment as Shelter Cove’s live-in deputy, he is fed up with the ambiguity: “I wish they would totally ban it — zero tolerance — or just make it totally legal.” The resort was established in 1964 as a place for vacationers and retirees to build second homes on breathtaking coastline accessible by a single, winding two-lane road. Over the years, marijuana farming came to Humboldt, first as a countercultural statement, then as a business. Shelter Cove was isolated, with minimal police

presence, which made it attractive to growers. By the time Hamilton arrived in the fall of 2009, the place had become a concentrate of California’s weird weed world.

‘Outlaw mentality’ Pot growers occupied about half of the nearly 600 houses. Young growers hung Scarface posters, drew the blinds and raised marijuana beneath 1,000watt lights. Others put in greenhouses on denuded patches of hillside. Some installed sensors and hidden cameras to detect intruders. When they raided large indoor operations, deputies often found photographs of the growers vacationing in places like Costa Rica and Bali. “There’s this outlaw mentality,” Hamilton said. “They think they’re these drug lords, and they’re going to take over southern Humboldt. You see them driving $40,000, $50,000 vehicles, and they have no jobs.” For many years, development at Shelter Cove was limited by lack of electricity. Homeowners depended on generators. In 1983, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. ran an electrical line along the 21-mile road that connects the cove to Highway 101. The line’s limited capacity was more than adequate for a community where the average household use was a modest 500 to 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month. Then growers moved their

crops indoors and installed highintensity lights. “We maxed out our system very quickly when this started,” said Richard Culp, the resort’s general manager. “We’re seeing 5,000, 6,000, 8,000, 9,000 kilowatthours of use a month.” Hoping to halt the trend, the resort’s utility nearly tripled the hourly rate for usage above 2,000 kilowatt-hours a month. When that made no difference, the rate for heavy usage was raised to five times the normal charge. Growers simply added more plants and lights to generate income to pay the extra cost. The cove’s backup generator had to be replaced, at a cost of $500,000. Last year, PG&E informed Shelter Cove that it would have to kick in $300,000 to expand the capacity of the electrical line. In all, the resort estimates that indoor pot growing has cost its residents more than $1 million since 2005. Residents say indoor growing also brought a lawless feel to the cove: nighttime gunfire; planes landing and taking off in darkness from the resort’s airstrip; late-night parties; trashed rental housing; truck races along Upper and Lower Pacific drives. “It was the wild, wild West,” said Roger Boedecker, a member of the Shelter Cove Resort Improvement District board of directors. “The D.A.’s office is reputed not to be inclined to prosecute small growers. You can grow with impunity.”

The indoor marijuana boom split Shelter Cove between younger growers, most of them renters, and older retirees, some of whom desperately hope for pot’s legalization, believing it will drain the profits from illegal cultivation. This was the situation Hamilton found when he arrived. He began by ticketing people for dilapidated trailers, for growing pot on land where they didn’t live, which is against state law, or for living on land without a septic system. But Hamilton said the county’s building department objected, saying he was doing its job, one he wasn’t trained for. He asked for guidance from the Sheriff’s Department on what to do about full-grown plants capable of producing more pot than a medical marijuana user could possibly need. “Some of them are 8 feet tall, for God’s sake,” he wrote in an e-mail. He was given a formula for calculating whether a grower was exceeding the county-permitted plant canopy of 100 square feet per medical patient. “The current climate is to (go after) big commercial growers, ignore small grows,” said Humboldt County Sheriff Gary Philp. “But you see more and more grow houses. If they’re not going to be prosecuted, at a certain point they affect the community. We’ve had home invasions, shootings, homicides.”

A return visit Gallegos, who is seeking a third term as district attorney, bristles at the idea that his office has been soft on illegal marijuana farming. He said he cracks down on illegal grow houses when he has the evidence, but also tries to protect patients’ access to pot for legitimate medical needs.

“If someone has a (medical marijuana) recommendation, and they’re within the ordinances, it’s presumed they’re lawful,” Gallegos said. He faulted the county supervisors for enacting weak regulations on medical marijuana that, he said, invite abuse by commercial growers. Far from these debates, Hamilton navigates the roads, armed with skepticism and a smile. Deputies in other counties may have broad citizen support. In marijuana country, he finds, it depends. Over the summer, Hamilton received tips that the young men he’d found raising marijuana on a hillside, supposedly for medical purposes, had been firing warning shots to scare off people who came near their plot, including two tourists interested in a nearby property for sale. So he made a return visit in September. Hamilton said the caretaker, Joseph Florence, 20, was armed with a .22-caliber rifle and was wearing a militarystyle camouflage suit. It turned out he was wanted in Maryland for alleged methamphetamine distribution. Hamilton saw that the marijuana plants had grown a lot since July. He measured them. The square footage was three times what county regulations allow for the number of medical-marijuana cards the men had posted. A sheriff’s eradication team uprooted the plants. Florence was taken into custody, to be returned to Maryland. Hamilton has turned over his case file on the other men to the district attorney’s office. But there are many bigger growers in Humboldt, and county government is spread thin. “I don’t believe anything will come of it,” Hamilton said. In Humboldt, the loss of the pot is often the punishment.

In the spring of this year, Outward Bound began building permanent wood cabins on 13 platforms at its Terrebonne-area base camp. Instructors had used tents on the platforms for 20 years to store their personal belongings while they were out leading expeditions in the Cascades. They often returned to find their gear wet from rain or chewed

up by rodents, according to the organization. The new cabins were supposed to solve that problem. But Outward Bound failed to get the necessary building approval from Deschutes County, and a neighbor in a nearby subdivision reported the work to county code enforcement officials. The project also ran into problems from its other neighbors: golden eagles, who use a protected nesting site just north

REDMOND — Colleen Jaramillo was at a Redmond pizza restaurant early Saturday afternoon when she first heard about what was going on at the Humane Society of Redmond. She jumped into action. Barely half an hour later, she’d stuffed her two children and the family dog into their costumes and was at Howl-O-Ween, a fundraiser and Halloween party put on by the Humane Society for local residents. “We’re not Wendy Monzulla, volunteer planning on coordinator for making a lot the Humane Society, said the of money, but first-time event it’s also an was a way of thanking shelter opportunity for while people to come volunteers also opening up the facility to and have fun. animal lovers in We call it a the community. friend-raiser.” “We’re not planning on — Wendy Monzulla, making a lot of volunteer coordinator money, but it’s for the Humane also an opportunity for people to Society of Redmond come and have fun. We call it a friend-raiser,” she said. In between costume contests, trick contests and cake walks, Jaramillo introduced her 4-year-old Doberman pinscher, Ginger, and explained how she lost her rear left leg when she was run over by a truck outside their home in Redmond three years ago. Ginger was back up and walking the day after surgery, Jaramillo said, and is now able to do most anything a four-legged dog can do, from bounding through the snow to parading around a Halloween party dressed as a hot dog. With only one rear leg to propel her, Ginger has a tendency to lunge when coming in close to examine a visitor or a camera lens. “She’s sweet, she might lick you to death when she’s excited, or she might knock you down, but she’s never hurt a fly,” Jaramillo said. Margo Clark brought what was almost certainly the best-traveled dog at Saturday’s event, her cocker spaniel, Moby. Visiting friends in Central Oregon with her four cocker spaniels, Clark explained how she’d traveled to Brazil to adopt Moby, and how Moby had managed to charm the flight crew into letting her take him out of his carrier and ride in a vacant seat on the flight home from Rio. Clark said Moby is still a little skittish around other dogs, and taking him to events like the Halloween party is her way of trying to get him to relax. “He’s just as sweet as can be, he’s a cuddlebug,” she said. “He just needs to get more comfortable in social situations.”

State board OKs engineering degree at OSU-Cascades By Megan Kehoe The Bulletin

The costume contest was won by Samantha Hyde’s 4-year-old Chinese crested, Roxy, dressed in a grass skirt, a lei and a miniature coconut bra. Hyde said Roxy has always been comfortable in costume — as a small breed with thin fur, Roxy spends most winters in a sweater or other piece of warm clothing. A Redmond resident, Hyde recently started volunteering at the shelter, feeding cats, walking dogs and assisting with cat adoptions. There’s always a lot to do at the shelter, Hyde said, and the Humane Society needs all the help it can get. “It’s only been six or seven weeks, but it feels like forever,” she said. “Everybody’s so close and you’re so busy, the time just flies by.” Scott Hammers can be reached at 541-383-0387 or at shammers@bendbulletin.com.

After two years of planning, OSU-Cascades’ Energy Engineering Management Degree program was approved by the State Board of Higher Education Thursday, making it the first engineering degree program offered by the college’s branch in Bend. “For the campus to grow and be successful, it’s important to offer a broad choice of programs,” said Christine Coffin, director of communications and outreach for OSU-Cascades. “This program certainly gives the campus a lot of credibility.” Initially, the degree program will only be offered at the Cascades campus, with classes for the program already being offered this term in anticipation of the board’s approval. The program is also one of just a few programs of its kind across the country. “The program seems to be a really good fit for Bend,” said Coffin, adding that there was a lot of serious interest by energy companies in the area advocating for the program to come to Central Oregon. Coffin also said the program could help contribute to the energy industry and bring more people to Bend. Students in the program can expect to take classes in mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and business management, along with courses touching on environmental issues and energy efficiency.

Study tracks rescued seal survival By Lynda V. Mapes The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — Stretched out on a bedsheet, a towel over his head with just his big, soulful eyes peeking out, Vetch the harbor seal is readied for release back to the wild after a stint at Wolf Hollow, a wildlife rehabilitation center. Across the country, seals like Vetch — named by the rehabcenter staff, who are deploying a native-plant theme this season — are picked up, stranded on beaches as young pups. The experts say baby-seal pups found on the beach should be left alone, because their mother is off fishing and will return. But it doesn’t always go that way. Sometimes, baby seals are attacked by dogs or the mother is scared off by people. She might have been killed or sickened. Sometimes, pups are injured or sick. That’s when stranding networks and other wildlife experts recommend a seal for pickup and rehab at a facility such as Wolf Hollow. Vetch was found alone on a beach on San Juan Island, emaciated, dehydrated and with infected puncture wounds on his flippers. Then there’s Ocean Spray: picked up on a beach when a hiker found her alone. Dogwood was found under a beachfront restaurant, his mother dead nearby on a busy public beach. Monkey Flower was marooned on a beach at a marina, trying to suckle docks and boats.

Round-the-clock care They all were cared for at Wolf Hollow, hand-fed herring by the dozen to fatten them up, treated with medications to heal their wounds and infections, and lavished when needed with nearly round-the-clock care, at a cost of about $3,000 per animal.

After their release from cages on the shore near Friday Harbor, Wash., on Oct. 19, seals that have been through wildlife rehab make their way out to open water. Bluebell is in the lead, followed by Vetch, outfitted with a satellite transmitter glued on his back. service to handle stranded seals, since 1984 has taken in and rehabilitated 569 harbor seals, at a cost of at least $1.8 million. The feds spend more than $500,000 to $700,000 a year in Oregon and Washington on programs for stranded marine mammals, including the rescue and rehabilitation of harbor seals. Yet, for all that effort and expense, no one tracks the survival of the animals once they are released back into the wild. Does a rescued animal die relatively quickly? Or behave like a wild seal? “We have some interest in knowing whether or not rehabilitation ultimately results in the animal surviving,” said Brent Norberg, marine-mammal coordinator for the National Marine Fisheries Service’s Northwest region. “Remarkable as it sounds, given the number of animals taken in annually, we don’t know that.” Enter Vetch: Along with nine more seal pups picked up and rehabilitated in the summer, he is part of a new, first-of-its-kind study in Puget Sound. Scientists have tagged the 10 rehab seals, along with 10 wild ones, and will track them over the next year or

so to see how their fates compare, before all 20 seals naturally molt their coat — and their tags. Scientists know the seals have died if a signal is no longer received or if it is stationary. Last week, the last of the rehab seals were tagged and released from Wolf Hollow. Vetch was stoic.

Tracking devices used Sitting astride him like a teeter totter, one volunteer steadied Vetch as another stapled two tagging devices to his tail — numbed first with an ice pack. Next they dried a patch of his fur with a blast of compressed air and attached a transmitter between his shoulder blades with epoxy, so Vetch can be tracked by both satellite and radio signal. The $135,479 study was a priority for the National Marine Fisheries Service, which provided most of the money. Seal rehab is big business in some states, such as California, which turns out hundreds of rehabilitated seals a year, compared with a modest 30 or so seals a year in Washington. The study could help answer big questions, including whether

rehab efforts should be undertaken at all. There is no conservation need for rescue, after all, with the harbor seal population in Puget Sound already at carrying capacity. Thriving on a diverse diet, seals are basking and multiplying all over Puget Sound; along the outer coast; on rocks and beaches in the San Juan Islands and along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Long recovered from the days when Washington state put a bounty on their heads, it’s no conservation issue even if lots of seals die. According to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, which estimates seal numbers in the state, the population could plummet by 20 percent without any threat. But don’t tell that to Leaf, a young pup recently rescued — or her human admirers. The size and softness of a loaf of just-risen French bread, Leaf watched intently as Vetch was readied for release. Leaf’s day is coming soon, but for now, Leaf was inching around like a doe-eyed Slinky taking the sun in a baby pool. “They have big eyes, big whiskers, and they’re cute,” said Joe Gaydos, regional director and chief scientist for the SeaDoc Society, a nonprofit science and conservation group that is leading the study. All the debate was lost on Vetch, as his dog kennel was carefully set down on the beach, with two other seals’. The other two caterpillared out of their kennels when their doors were slung open. Vetch? He was so reluctant to leave that his tenders from Wolf Hollow had to upend the kennel carefully to usher him back into the wild. Bit by bit, he nosed to the water, finally sliding into the bay. After a few hesitant tours around the bay, he poked his body, tags and all, under the glassy, green surface.

Nevada voters to decide on ‘merit selection’ of judges By Ashley Powers Los Angeles Times

LAS VEGAS — One judge fell asleep during trials, berated her staff and forced her bailiff to massage her feet. Another hurled racial slurs at employees and admitted to sexual trysts with his assistant during working hours. Nevada has suffered a string of judicial embarrassments in recent years, including a 2006 Los Angeles Times investigation that showed some jurists routinely ruled in favor of friends and business partners, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds from attorneys and companies with cases pending before them. That prompted Nevada lawmakers to call for the appointment of state Supreme Court and District Court jurists, who would be subject to performance evaluations and retention elections. On Tuesday, voters will be asked to approve a constitutional amendment to establish such a “merit selection” plan. Advocates say the proposal would ensure the state’s jurists were capable and dilute the influence of judicial campaign donors. Fundraising for state Supreme Court races between 2000 and 2009 topped $200 million nationwide, according to the nonpartisan group Justice at Stake. Nevada ranked eighth in money collected, with much of the nearly $10 million coming from law

firms and casino companies. “Just because you run a good political campaign doesn’t mean you’re a good judge,” said Nicole Willis-Grimes, a spokeswoman for Nevadans for Qualified Judges, the group backing Question 1. The measure, which state lawmakers approved in 2007 and 2009, has wide backing among political and business tastemakers and a strong advocate in retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who has barnstormed on its behalf. O’Connor, motivated by one judge who called her female client a “heifer” and another who campaigned as a one-man band, pushed Arizona to adopt merit selection while serving as a state lawmaker. She told attorneys here last month the system improved Arizona’s judicial quality and helped diversify its bench. O’Connor’s campaigning has kindled criticism from some judicial watchers because she still hears federal appeals cases as a visiting judge. Polls have shown the proposal fizzling with voters, who’ve rejected similar measures twice. “You’re essentially asking people to give up their right to vote,” said Eric Herzik, a political science professor at the University of Nevada, Reno.

O Wildlife crews race to kill off invasive snails

Disability doesn’t stop 5-year-old from racing

By Mark Freeman

By Steve Lathrop

The Mail Tribune

Albany Democrat-Herald

MEDFORD — Wildlife authorities are waging a battle against a non-native snail found by the thousands in two White City ponds before the snails can wreak havoc among native species throughout the Agate Desert. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife crews have sprayed two Jackson County Sports Park ponds near the rifle range with copper sulfate to kill off the currently isolated and unwanted populations of Chinese mystery snails. It marks the first time in Oregon — and possibly in the United States — that copper sulfate has been used to eradicate this species of algae-eating snails, said Rick Boatner, the ODFW’s invasive species coordinator heading the effort. The snails can be legally purchased from aquarium stores, but it is illegal to release them into the wild. Since the treatments earlier this month, crews have skimmed more than 27,000 dead snails from the two ponds, and crews and trained technicians will survey the pond weekly for more dead snails, Boatner said. “That was way beyond what I was guessing and they keep dying, so we’re doing something they don’t like,” Boatner said. Copper sulfate is an approved snailicide by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. It has been used to kill apple snails in Florida and is regularly used in Eastern states to kill snails known to carry a parasite that causes swimmer’s itch, Boatner said. The compound has not been used on mystery snails in Oregon, and Boatner found no references to copper sulfate applications for Chinese mystery snail populations elsewhere. “What we’re doing is totally experimental,” Boatner said. Based on EPA guidelines, crews applied 13 pounds of copper sulfate to one pond and 44 pounds during two applications at a larger and deeper pond, Boatner said. Jackson County officials posted signs warning people of the application for the EPA-required 48 hours to allow the chemical to dissipate. Both ponds are on county land just south of Kershaw Road. Despite the treatments, a snail trap in one of the ponds has captured live snails that survived, said Martyne Reesman, an aquatic invasive species technician who is working on the project. “They haven’t been 100 percent eradicated, but at least we’re having good success,” Reesman said. Reesman and fellow technician Becky Hill spent much of Thursday afternoon at the ponds collecting dead snails, which measure up to 2½ inches wide.

ALBANY — When Brody Simm finished his go-cart race at the state fairgrounds a little over a month ago, he didn’t have time to savor his effort or even find out how well he did. Brody was out of his cart and hustling to the BMX track for another race. Jumping from go-carts to BMX bikes is something Brody does on a regular basis, just not usually on the same day. Brody made it to the BMX track on time and secured another trophy. That’s something else he does on a regular basis. Brody, 5, is reigning state champion in his age group on the BMX track, having won the title in Grants Pass last month. The trophy is almost as tall as he is and brought his total to 39 in just over a year of racing. The fact that he took to bikes so young is an amazing accomplishment in itself. Brody, the adopted son of Edward and Monica Simm, of North Albany, is still fighting to overcome the physical limitations brought on by the meth and cocaine that were in his system at birth. “He was only a little over 3 pounds when he was born,” Ed Simm said. “His lungs weren’t fully developed, and he has some learning disabilities.” The Simms have worked diligently to improve Brody’s status. Regular exercises have been a part of his life since he was a baby, along with weekly visits to the doctor. Slowly he is progressing, and his love for racing has helped accelerate his improvement. “He didn’t walk until he was 2, but he was riding a trike,” Ed remembered. “At 3, he was on a bike without training wheels.” A year later, Brody was on his first BMX track in Salem, winning trophies almost immediately. He advanced from Novice to Intermediate level races in just eight months. One more main event win will move him up to Expert level, which will put him in competition with older racers. It doesn’t seem to phase him. He likes to win. “Winning the race is the most fun,” says Brody, who still carries only 38 pounds on his frame. “I like passing people, too.” He’s passed his share, and he goes all out when he’s on the track, despite lingering physical problems. His hips and neck muscles are not fully developed, and he still has issues with breathing. Every Thursday he’s at the doctor’s office to get three shots. He uses an inhaler before every race, and his parents carry an EpiPen auto-injector

just in case he encounters a problem at the racetrack. “We haven’t had to use it yet,” Ed said. Nonetheless, a cold can easily lead to pneumonia, which he gets three or four times a year. With all this going against him, do his parents worry when he’s on the track? “Not really,” Ed said. “He has a protective vest that’s almost like body armor, plus padded pants and a helmet.” Brody has had just a couple of spills, and only one put him out of action. He sat out for two weeks but didn’t stop training. Because of his size, Brody races a specially made lightweight bike put together by Santiam Bikes in Salem, one of his sponsors. On the go-cart track, Brody is just getting started. He’s always the youngest driver in his class but managed to finish seventh in point standings at his home track in Lebanon. It’s bike racing that is most important to Brody. He’s always riding. After kindergarten at Albany Christian School, he comes home and rides in the neighborhood. “He even wants to ride his bike after a race,” Ed noted. The Simms use the bike as a reward for Brody. If he acts up at school, they may take the privilege away, but that doesn’t happen very often. Brody has a lot friends at school and on the racetrack. He is close with his 6-year-old sister, Angel, also adopted. “They watch out for each other,” Ed said. “They get

along really well.” Although Ed says there are still question marks in Brody’s development, there have been many people encouraging the family. BMX riders and their families have been especially supportive. Adam Treadwell, a coach at the Salem BMX track, taught Brody to listen for the cadence at the start of races since Brody is partly colorblind and can’t recognize the color changes on the starting lights. “All the support is amazing,” Ed said. “But it’s been totally rewarding for us just to be with him. We’re lucky to have him in our lives.”

O  B Giant starfish die-off Rifle report triggers lockdown at 2 schools puzzles biologists EUGENE — A beach ranger’s discovery of hundreds of dead starfish along Haceta Beach has confused shellfish biologists who can’t determine why the starfish died in such numbers in just one place. The Register-Guard reports the starfish die-off was discovered Thursday morning. Justin Ainsworth of the Department of Fish and Wildlife says the starfish may have been killed by recent stormy waters, but the storms hit most of the coast, and the dead starfish were only found on Haceta Beach. Ainsworth says the starfish may also have been killed by disease or low oxygen levels in the water.

Pot experiment explodes in home COOS BAY — Police say a man who tried to distill the active ingredient from marijuana using butane gas inadvertently caused an explosion that sent the door of his refrigerator through a wall in his home. Police have not identified the man and are checking whether any of the home’s residents has a valid medical marijuana card. No one was injured. The Mail Tribune reports that the explosion on Monday shattered a window, dislodged cupboard doors and scattered food around the kitchen. Coos County Sheriff’s Sgt. Pat Downing says one of the home’s residents was trying to extract tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, from marijuana.

EUGENE — Two Eugene elementary schools were locked down after a man was spotted brandishing what looked like a rifle. The Register-Guard reported that police went to the area near Polk Street and West 24th Avenue on Friday morning after receiving a report of a man pointing a rifle at passers-by. Police say 34-year-old Robert James Klich was arrested, and officials determined that he had been carrying an air gun that looked like an assault rifle. The initial report prompted an arts academy at Jefferson Elementary and Adams Elementary to briefly go into lockdown, but both reopened after the arrest. No one was injured.

Video of fighting kids prompts call to police MCMINNVILLE — McMinnville police say an out-of-state caller alerted them to a video on Facebook that showed two 9-yearold boys fighting violently while adult voices cheered them on. McMinnville police Capt. Dennis Marks said officers identified the fight location and obtained search warrants for two homes. Children were removed from both residences, and four adults were arrested and jailed. They will be arraigned Monday on multiple charges, including assault. — From wire reports

OR I ZONS

Oregon’s oldest woman rings in another year By Mark Baker The (Eugene) Register-Guard

CRESWELL — She has lived in three centuries. She has lived through the administration of 20 U.S. presidents. She has survived a heart attack in her early 70s and outlived both of her husbands, two of her three children and all five of her siblings. She is a supercentenarian (110 or older) — one of only 79 verified in the world. But exactly how old is Creswell resident Delma Kollar? According to U.S. Census records from 1900 and 1910, she was born on Oct. 31, 1897, which would make her 113 today. That would also make her the 13th-oldest person in the world and the sixtholdest in the United States, according to the Los Angeles-based Gerontology Research Group, which verifies claims for the Guinness Book of World Records. Until those census records were discovered a couple of years ago by Robert Young, of Atlanta, a Georgia State University graduate student and senior claims researcher for the Gerontology Research Group, Kollar’s family had always thought she was born on Oct. 31, 1898. That would make her only 112 today, or just the 28th-oldest known person in the world. Either way, there is likely no one older living in Oregon today. “That’s a safe bet,” Young said by telephone from Atlanta. “That’s a very safe bet.” Birth certificates were not issued in the United States until the early 20th century, although it was common for those born in the 19th century to be issued one later in life. Kollar’s only surviving child, Jean Cooper, of Cottage Grove, said she has her mother’s somewhere, and it indicates she was born in 1898. In recent years, handwritten state and federal census records have been put online and can be accessed at websites such as Ancestry.com. That’s where Young found two records saying Kollar, who was born Delma Dorothie Low-

man in the tiny eastern Kansas town of Lone Elm, came into the world on Oct. 31, 1897. The 1900 U.S. Census taken on June 13 of that year in Lone Elm includes the family of Bascom and Mary Jane Lowman and the listing of their four children at the time, with the two youngest being Delma and Nina. But Delma’s name seems to be written as “Dorsey D.” She is listed as age 2 at the time with a birth date of Oct. 31, 1897. Nina is listed as age 1 with a birth date of Feb. 1, 1899. A 1905 Kansas state census of the Lowman family found by Young lists Delma as being 6, which would indicate her being born in 1898. But the 1910 U.S. Census found at Ancestry.com — taken on April 23 that year has Delma listed as 12 and Nina as 11.

Big family celebration Kollar’s granddaughter, Syd Bergeson, of Eugene, said the family, which includes Kollar’s six grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, 10 great-great grandchildren and one great-great-great grandchild will celebrate her 113th birthday today at her nursing home, the Creswell Health and Rehabilitation Center. “We’re going with 1-1-3,” Bergeson said. “If there had only been one (census record), I would have leaned more toward, OK, somebody just made a mistake. But there were two,” Bergeson said. However, the 1930 U.S. Census taken in Elkhart, Kan., where Kollar lived at the time with her first husband, Earl Hoggatt, lists Delma Hoggatt as being 31, which again would indicate an 1898 birth. “Bottom line, it’s a mystery,” Young said. But the fact that Kollar’s younger sister, Nina, is listed on the 1900 and 1910 censuses as being born on Feb. 1, 1899, gives strong credence to Kollar being born on Oct. 31, 1897, because they obviously could not have been born three months apart, he said. The Gerontology Research Group de-

“Every birthday I think this is probably it. And then here we are again. She’s our little family treasure.” — Kollar’s granddaughter, Syd Bergeson, of Eugene

cided to go with 1897 for Kollar’s birth because “for 1898 to be correct, (her) father would have had to not know the difference between a child aged 1, born February 1899, and a child aged 4 months, born February 1900,” Young said. “Given that the 1900 census is asked three ways (age, year of birth, month of birth) it is more reliable and is also the closest record to the birth event,” he said. Maybe someone should just ask Kollar herself? “How old will you be — 112?” asked Cooper, standing over her mother’s bedside Thursday at the nursing home where she has lived since 2004. “Oh, I quit paying attention at 105,” said Kollar, who moved to Oregon from California in 1982 with her second husband, Harry Kollar. Kollar is remarkably lucid for someone her age, but bedridden and extremely hard of hearing. Visitors must yell for her to hear them. Asked Thursday what year she was born, Kollar said 1898. She quickly corrected herself, however, and said 1897. “I never heard her say that until the last couple of years,” said Cooper, 86, who believes her mother was born in 1898. Bergeson has kept her grandmother up to date on Young’s research. Thursday, Kollar got a special visit from someone she has never met before. Into her room walked a tall, fit, bespectacled man from Kansas who came bearing gifts. “This is Doug Barth from Baker Uni-

versity,” said Bergeson, 59, speaking loudly into her grandmother’s ear. “Oh, from Baker?” responded Kollar, her eyes brightening a bit. She had been asleep at 11:30 a.m. until Bergeson roused her. “And I’m a Baker graduate, too,” Barth said. “A few years behind you. It’s very nice to meet you.” Baker University is a small college of 960 in Baldwin City, Kan., that Kollar attended from 1920 to 1922, according to school records. It’s where she met her husband-to-be, Hoggatt. The two teamed together in a science-class demonstration before being set up on a blind date. Both went on to long careers as school teachers in Kansas and California. Bergeson saw a Baker University newsletter sent to her grandmother in April that mentioned an all-class reunion happening in May. Bergeson decided to write to university President Patricia Long, telling her parts of her grandmother’s story, how she met her first husband there, that she was 112 and probably would not be able to make it to the reunion in May. Long passed the note on to Barth, Baker’s director of alumni and corporate relations. Barth was fascinated, but had to laugh at the part about Kollar not being able to make it “when I read how old she was,” he said.

‘Crazy idea’ Barth got in touch with Bergeson, and told her he had this “crazy idea” to fly to Oregon and meet Kollar on her next birthday, assuming she was still alive. “Every birthday I think this is probably it,” Bergeson said. “And then here we are again. She’s our little family treasure.” Barth flew into Portland on Wednesday and left the state on Friday. He spent time with Kollar on Thursday, presenting her with a gray school blanket marked with its orange-and-blue “Wildcat” logo, a certificate acknowledging her as

the school’s oldest alum, framed photos he found in the school archives of Kollar and Earl Hoggatt as students, and a photo of all 32 women in Kollar’s Phi Mu sorority during the 1920-21 school year. School records show that Kollar did not graduate until 1947, Barth said. Cooper and Bergeson said that must be wrong, but Barth surmises she must have gone back to school to finish her biology degree after World War II. Kollar had another surprise visit recently. On Sept. 4, Dr. L. Stephen Coles, a visiting professor at UCLA and cofounder of the Gerontology Research Group, came to Creswell to draw Kollar’s blood for a joint project between UCLA and Stanford University. Coles said he has taken blood from 10 supercentenarians in the hopes of discovering why they have lived so long. “They’ve inherited the ability to escape from ordinary diseases,” Coles said when contacted on his cell phone in Los Angeles. “We’re going to hopefully learn what the good genes are.” After taking a blood sample from not only Kollar, but Cooper and Bergeson, as well, he took them to Stanford where the white blood cells were used to create a DNA sequence that was then delivered to a company, Complete Genomics in Mountain View, Calif., that has developed and commercialized an innovative DNA sequencing platform it believes will become the preferred solution for complete human genome sequencing and analysis. In addition to the 79 supercentenarians between the ages of 110 and 114 it has verified around the world, the Gerontology Research Group has 34 more cases pending for verification, Young said. Sometimes verification is impossible because of a lack of records, he said. Only three of the 79 verified are men. Women tend to live longer than men. “We think it has something to with the female advantage of the X chromosome,” Coles said. “But we haven’t confirmed that.” Delma Kollar seems to be living proof.

Bend High Lava Bears shut out Dalles with bone-jarring defense in 1960 100 YEARS AGO For the week ending Oct. 30, 1910 SHANIKO (E ditorial) Shaniko’s enormous shipping business as a railroad terminal and supply point for Central Oregon is of great interest to Bend. Shaniko has this huge and profitable business because it is the railroad supply point for the great country to the south. Let Bend note this. And let us ponder on the economic magnitude and town-building importance of this shipping and freighting trade that will be Bend’s when Bend is the terminus of the Oregon Trunk and the supply point for the great country to the south and southeast. Furthermore, in estimating what this will mean for Bend, it is important to remember that all this southern territory is developing with wonderful rapidity and will focus an enormous trade here — a trade which will continue to be Bend’s long after the railroads have built forth southward and southeastward. SHANIKO HAS RECORD During the past year, more than 20 million tons of Central Oregon freight have been handled through the Moody warehouses at Shaniko. This does not include the wheat shipments of more than 100,000 sacks or the immense tonnage of materials and supplies used in the construction of the Oregon Trunk Railway and the Deschutes Railway, which was handled through the private warehouses of these companies. Just now there is a great boom in the teaming business on account of the excellent condition of the roads to the interior, and it is no uncommon thing to see 40 to 60 outfits loading at the same time at the warehouses. During the same 12-month period, more than 30,000 passengers have passed through the Shaniko gateway. Probably this record is unequaled by that of any town twice the size of Shaniko in all the West — and Shaniko’s shipping business, if anything, is increasing and will increase with the development of the interior, until the completion of the Deschutes railroads in a few months.

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending Oct. 30, 1960 IT WAS THOSE BONE-JARRING TACKLES When historians look back upon football games on the old

Bruin Field, they will label Saturday’s finale against The Dalles “one of the finest of all.” Congratulations are in order for the coaching staff and the entire team. That 26-0 victory was carved out in the face of heavy odds and a determined opponent. Terry Johnston’s two runs were thrillers. Jim Dexter’s fourth down touchdown pass would have done credit to Johnny Unitas. But the thing that won the game was good old bone-jarring defense. Never had the Bend youngsters hit harder. And, if you were one of the many who purchased a section of turf from the field, be wary. That crunching noise you will hear late at night in the area where the turf is planted will probably be a Lava Bear returning to put a punishing tackle on some swift Indian. Again boys, congratulations. You were magnificent in the home finale. But lest this make you overconfident, remember, there are some Redmond Panthers waiting to lure you into their den of complacency this weekend. SON BORN TO SHAH, IRANIANS GO WILD The queen of Iran gave birth to a boy today, presenting the Shah and a joyous nation with an heir to the Peacock Throne. The birth occurred at 11:50 a.m. It touched off a wild celebration among the Iranian people. The Shah told reporters that Queen Farah and the baby both were doing fine. “I am very happy,” he beamed. Throughout the country, big guns boomed 41-salvo salutes. Giant crowds that had been assembling since the queen entered the hospital in labor this morning cheered so loudly the doctors had to ask for quiet. The birth ended years of disappointment and frustration for Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi and his subjects when two previous marriages had failed to produce a son.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending Oct. 30, 1985 FEDS ARREST RAJNEESH, AIDES Federal authorities arrested Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and several of his followers for immigration violations today when his private jets stopped to refuel on a flight from his Oregon commune to Bermuda. Four more members of his sect surrendered to the U.S. Marshal’s Office in Portland later in the morning to answer federal grand jury indictments stem-

ming from a probe of alleged immigration violations. Authorities had tracked the jets with radar as they flew from Oregon, and surprised the guru and his entourage when they landed to refuel in Charlotte, N.C., at 2 a.m. local time. Three other people were reportedly named in the indictments, but their names were not released pending arrest. Rajneesh spokeswoman Ma Anand Bhagawati said the entourage left the commune in secret Sunday night. “None of us knew he was leaving,” she said. Rajneesh and his followers were handcuffed and held in cells at the marshal’s office pending arraignment later today. U.S. Attorney Charles H. Turner in Portland said Rajneesh was trying to flee the country to avoid arrest on a 35-count secret indictment handed down by a federal grand jury Wednesday. Turner said an attorney representing Rajneesh called this Sunday and asked about bail, indicating he was aware of the grand jury action. “He (Rajneesh) knew when the indictment was returned. As soon as that happened, the guy fled,” he said.

Documents filed in federal court in Portland said an investigation of Rajneesh’s activities involved “suspected patterns of marriage fraud among Rajneeshies, as well as allegations that individual marriages have been entered into for the purpose of securing immigration benefits or evading immigration laws.” The indictment charged Rajneesh with making false statements to the U.S. Immigration

and Naturalization Service and conspiring to defraud the government. Compiled by Don Hoiness from archived copies of The Bulletin at the Des Chutes Historical Museum.

Engineering Continued from B1 The program is offered in partnership with Oregon State University’s College of Engineering. “OSU’s College of Engineering is a leader in research and commercialization of sustainable forms of energy and the technologies associated with them,” said Ron Adams, dean of the College of Engineering. “That, plus Central Oregon’s climate and a growing energy sector, creates a recipe for a strong program.” There are a variety of jobs energy engineers could pursue — managing a wind turbine

Roy Skinner Outward broke college basketball racial barriers By Daniel E. Slotnik New York Times News Service

Roy Skinner, the Vanderbilt University coach who recruited the first black athlete to play varsity basketball in the Southeastern Conference and who led the Commodores to more victories than any other coach, died Monday in Nashville. He was 80. The cause was respiratory failure, Skinner’s daughter Chris said. When Vanderbilt’s chancellor, Alexander Heard, encouraged Skinner to recruit black players in the mid-1960s, Skinner immediately began to search for suitable players and eventually recruited Perry Wallace, a high school star in Nashville. “I don’t think Skinner was looking to make history, but he was aware of it,” said Andrew Maraniss, a Vanderbilt alumnus who is writing a biography of Wallace. “I think the most important thing to Skinner would be that Wallace was a great player, and also a great student, a valedictorian.” Wallace, 63, said that although Skinner rarely if ever addressed the racial hostility Wallace faced, he was a calming influence during difficult times. “The test is not, did he stand up to hostile crowds?” Wallace said. “His basic manner and his approach and the fact that he was sincere in trying to help me was most important to me.”

farm, analyzing efficiency of hydropower systems, assessing the economic viability and environmental impact of energy sources. Already, there are 150 students on the university’s “interested” list for the program, and with several pre-engineering courses being offered at the community college, the Cascades campus is hopeful that the program will be a success. “It’s an emerging field that will attract a lot of students as it goes on,” said Coffin. “It’s definitely what the market is demanding.” Megan Kehoe can be reached at 541-383-0354 or at mkehoe@bendbulletin.com.

Continued from B1 “It doesn’t change the way we use the property, there’s no change to our footprint,” said Henry Morse, a volunteer who sits on the Outward Bound board of directors. When an environmental analysis was issued in the 1990s, Outward Bound was the only property that had structures on it, Morse said. Other property owners, many closer to the eagles’ nesting site, have been able to build homes, he continued. “Yet Outward Bound is stuck with nothing more than taking down and putting up tents on the platforms that already exist ... One home alone has more square footage than all the platforms that we’re talking about Outward Bound having in that quarter-mile circle.” Two subdivisions are near the base camp and eagle nest, and several homes are within the sensitive bird and mammal zone, County Senior Planner Paul Blikstad said.

Some neighbors, biologist concerned Several neighbors wrote letters to the county expressing their opposition to the cabins, mostly saying the cabins should be removed because Outward Bound did not follow proper permitting procedure, and the structures would be more permanent than tents. A couple of neighbors also said they were concerned about the impact on their views and on the eagle nesting site. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife “recommends the cabins and tent platforms should be removed, and we couldn’t agree more,” wrote Suzanne Michaels and Karen Petit, who live across the river from the base camp. “This is the first time in 3 years the eagles have not used the nest located just downriver.” Steven George, the Deschutes District wildlife biologist with ODFW, did write in a letter to the county hearings officer who issued the ruling, that tents tend to be temporary, and “Cabins will do nothing but promote increased use thus increasing human disturbance.”

Neighbors Larry and Dawn Kruckenberg wrote that Outward Bound’s plan to paint or stain the cabins a color that will blend into the landscape will not be enough to address their aesthetics. “If the county allows the cabins with the requirements of exterior paint/stain, we suggest the white ‘sheets’ they are using for curtains also need to be addressed,” the Kruckenbergs wrote. “We realize the ‘temporary’ tents were also white in color, however, since the tents were truly temporary and abided by the existing county approvals, we are satisfied with the former site conditions.” The Outward Bound base camp near Odin Falls has operated for more than 20 years and is one of about 15 camps around the United States, Morse said. All but one of the other base camps have better, more secure facilities where instructors can store their gear, Morse said. While it functions as the base camp for courses in the Three Sisters and Mount Washington wildernesses and the Lower Deschutes River area, students do not spend time at the camp. The tents wear out frequently and often leak, and the wind blows them open, Morse said. “What often happens is the instructors are out in the field for two, three, four weeks, and they come back and find their gear is wet,” Morse said. Mice have also infiltrated the tents and nested in instructors’ belongings. Outward Bound’s staff examined Deschutes County’s website information on whether they needed a building permit for the cabins, Morse said, and thought they did not need a building permit for the small cabins. County code enforcement staff issued a stop work order, but then building staff worked with Outward Bound to allow them to finish the structures enough to prevent weather damage, Morse said. “We know that the eagles are there,” Morse said. “Like everyone in the area, we love watching them ... We’ve never been something that caused any bother to the eagles’ nests, as far as we can tell.” Hillary Borrud can be reached at 541-617-7829 or at hborrud@bendbulletin.com.

Graduation Continued from B1 With the five-year cohort taking effect, the impact could be significant in Redmond. About 115 students are enrolled in the advanced diploma program. An average graduating class at the high school is about 400 students. “It’s a better reflection of how many students are graduating,” Redmond spokeswoman Stephanie Curtis said. “We did have students who would’ve graduated in the fourth year had they not opted to take the advanced diploma.” The cohort approach drove down graduation rates across the region, but the impact in Redmond was perhaps the most profound. The 2007-08 graduation rates were calculated as a one-year snapshot of students who began the year and graduated at the end of it. Had Redmond’s 2008-

09 graduation rate been calculated under that model, the high school would have had a 92.5 graduation rate. Instead, Redmond High had a 50.1 graduation rate with the cohort model. District officials did not have the rate with the fiveyear cohort. When declines like Redmond’s became reality, ODE began hearing protests from several school districts, according to spokeswoman Susanne Smith. The dual four- and five-year measurements should be more accurate about how well students are doing in Oregon high schools, Smith said. With only the four-year cohort, schools were being penalized because they kept working with students who needed more time to graduate. “We recognize every student learns differently, and some take more time,” Smith said. The five-year rate comes with increased expectations, too. For the 2009-10 school year, ODE’s

graduation rate target for the four-year rate will be 65 percent. The five-year rate expectation will be 70 percent. While districts do not receive extra benefits for higher graduation rates, the numbers are crucial because they reveal how well a school is serving its students, Smith said. “Your graduation rate is one of those key indicators of the strength, the health of your educational program,” Smith said.

LOOKING OUT FOR THE KIDS

CASA volunteer Jay C. Smith helps find best living situations for neglected, abused children

By David Jasper • The Bulletin

I

n 1996, Jay C. Smith retired to Sunriver after a 35-year career working in marketing and human resources for Eastman Kodak Co., a working life that took him to Asia, Africa, the Middle East and other locales. “We moved to Central Oregon, which ... (my wife) said was her eighth foreign assignment,” he said, sitting at a table in the Bend office of Court Ap-

pointed Special Advocates, known as CASA. “Being retired, I looked into the various things that I would like to do to keep busy in sports and other things.” “Other things” included volunteering. He knew he wanted to work with kids and still have time to travel with his wife, Yvonne Smith. Then a friend mentioned her work volunteering as a guardian ad litem, explains Smith, “which is the other name they use for CASA. ... I said, ‘Gee, that sounds interesting.’” He hopped online and began learning about CASA, a nonprofit, federal- and state-mandated program in which volunteers advocate for abused and neglected children. He next called the Bend office of CASA of Central Oregon. It was about nine years ago that he became a CASA, in the parlance of the program, working as an advocate for foster kids. “So far, it seems to have worked out pretty well,” says Smith, 73, who was recently recognized in the Outstanding Senior Volunteer category of the Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Awards, held Oct. 22 in Salem. “It is working with kids, and working with a variety of people. I like to communicate. That’s always been, I think, one of my strengths,” Smith says. “And I like it that, other than court hearings and family court meetings, I can pretty much schedule it myself. ... I don’t like to be committed to too many things where I have to follow schedules.” See Smith / C8

Foster will discuss the January 2002 incident in which an Alaska high school student unfurled a sign reading “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” as a caravan of media passed his school during the Olympic Torch Relay. The act led to the student’s suspension, a suit against his school district and a federal case. Foster’s book will be available for purchase at the lecture, which is free and open to the public. Complimentary beverages will be available. Audience members are asked to pick up a free parking pass from the main office before parking.

Explorations of an arid island Newly autonomous Curaçao offers natural wonders and a unique and often dark history By Marjie Lambert McClatchy-Tribune News Service

WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao — The owner of Jaanchie’s takes a seat at my table. He is a compact man in his 60s who wears spectacles and a white guayabera and recites the entire menu rather than hand out a printed one. He is listing seafood when I interrupt to say I hear he makes a mean iguana soup. He raises his eyebrows and asks if I am traveling alone. Yes, I am. He shakes his head. “I don’t know if I can recommend the soup for you,” he says gravely. “At night, you know ... ” He pauses, then coyly lets me know that here on Curaçao, iguana is considered an aphrodisiac. I order it anyway, along with an entrée of goat stew. The iguana soup tastes exactly like chicken soup. But one particular bit of soup meat with tiny bones arrayed just like those on the spine of an iguana’s back suggests that the chunks of iguana are real. I see many goats grazing along the

Cacti stand tall in Christoffel National Park, with Mount Christoffel in the background, in Curaçao. road on my drive around the island, so oblivious to traffic that I begin to wonder about the provenance of my goat stew. But I never see an iguana, although the reptile is common on this arid island. Curaçao is in the Netherland Antilles and became an independent

country Oct. 10, autonomous from the Dutch. Situated between Aruba and Bonaire, 35 miles north of Venezuela, the island is just under three hours by air from Miami. Thirty-eight miles long, about seven miles across at its widest point, the strip of desert in the middle of the ocean is studded

with volcanic rock, limestone cliffs, a dozen kinds of cactus and the dividivi tree, whose branches point west in the direction of the wind. Most beaches are rocky rather than sandy; people come here for diving in the clear blue water rather than sunning next to it. Curaçao’s reefs have more than 50 species of coral and hundreds of species of fish, with dozens of dive sites. But I’m not a diver; I’m here to see what’s on dry land. The island is an intriguing intersection of cultures. The location is more Latin than Caribbean, the culture more Dutch. Curaçao’s ethnic mix includes Arawak Indians, who migrated from South America; the Dutch, who took over the island in the 17th century and made it a center of the slave trade, accounting for its African residents; Jews from Spain and Portugal whose ancestors fled the Inquisition; Venezuelans, whose crude oil is refined here; and descendants of settlers from Spain, Britain and France, who at various times occupied the island or fought the Dutch for it. The official language is Dutch, but many people speak English, Spanish or a Creole language called papiamentu. The official currency is the Dutch guilder, but everyone from taxi drivers to street vendors accepts my American dollars without hesitation. See Curaçao / C4

What to do when sisters grow apart Dear Abby: My sister “Penny” and I live in different states, and lead completely different lives. We have grown distant over the years — my choice really. Penny isn’t a bad person. She just doesn’t “get” my lifestyle. I have decided to remain unmarried and childless. A husband and family are all Penny ever wanted, and she considers it an insult that I don’t want the life she always dreamed about for herself. I would like to spend time with my sister — occasionally — but she has a different personality, no close friends and feels we MUST have a close relationship because we’re sisters. Abby, I don’t want to be her replacement for the friends she is unable to make. Penny complains that I never visit. But when I do, we’re both miserable, tend to provoke each other and get under each other’s skin. I love her, but it isn’t productive for us to spend a lot of time together. I would like to have a less stressful relationship with her and my new nephew. What can I do to make this happen? — Horse of a Different Color in Wyoming Dear Horse of a Different Color: By being frank with your sister and telling her exactly what you have told me. You CAN have a less stressful relationship with her, but it will require some compromise on the part of each of you. Explain to her that you do not have it in you to provide the closeness she appears so desperate for, and perhaps she will finally accept what you are willing and able to give her. It may lessen the tension between you. Dear Abby: We’re planning a 50th wedding anniversary celebration for my parents. My son “Mark” and his girlfriend, “Cin-

DEAR ABBY dy,” have been a couple for six years and have a 3-year-old son. They live in another town and plan to be married after Mark gets his degree. Abby, my father was never told about the birth of Mark and Cindy’s child, per strict orders from my mother. Because Dad adheres to the values and morals he learned as a young man in the 1950s, Mom is afraid he would “have a stroke” if he knew. Mom refuses to allow Mark and Cindy to bring their son to the party because Dad still doesn’t know. All of the other great-grandchildren will be there and included in the photos. This seems unfair and heartless. What can I do? — Anonymous in the Midwest Dear Anonymous: Depriving your father of knowledge that he has a great-grandchild has not only been unfair to the child, but also unfair to your father. The news will NOT “kill” him. He made it through the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, didn’t he? At this point, he may be surprised, but by now NOTHING will shock him. What may disturb him is learning that this was kept from him for so long. You should insist that he be told. Your grandson is not a guilty secret. He deserves to know his great-grandfather while there is still time. And if your mother won’t tell your father, then you should do it — before the party.

2 shows, 2 approaches to hard times ‘Downsized’: trim, scrimp, save; ‘Fairy Jobmother’: get working By Constance Rosenblum New York Times News Service

Cinderella’s fairy godmother arrived bearing a magic wand by which she produced the ball gown, pumpkin coach and glass slippers that made possible a gala night on the town. The Fairy Jobmother, by contrast, swoops in bearing tough love and a cheerleader’s energy, by which she hopes to convince unemployed families that through cleaning up their act and adjusting their priorities they can land a job even during the toughest of economic times. As her tag line sums it up: “No wings, no wand, no excuses.” The Fairy Jobmother, a 43year-old Yorkshire-born hairdresser turned employment counselor named Hayley Taylor, arrived over the summer on a popular reality series on Channel 4 in Britain. The character proved so popular there that the show has been retrofitted for American audiences. The first of eight weekly episodes, in which Taylor whips into shape a young California couple, Michelle and Shawn Aughe, was shown on Lifetime on Thursday. “The Fairy Jobmother” isn’t the only newcomer to a genre that might be thought of as reality TV, recession-style. Starting Saturday, an eightpart series on the cable channel WEtv called “Downsized” will introduce audiences to the Bruces, of Arizona, whom the

— Jennifer Davidson, TV executive, on “Downsized” homes on networks geared to women. (WE’s offerings include “Bridezillas” and “Amazing Wedding Cakes”; Lifetime has shows like “Drop Dead Diva” and “Cook Yourself Thin.”) And this placement, the shows’ creators agree, has considerable impact on how their stories are told. “Being on this network ensures that we concentrate on the emotional stories, that is to say, on how unemployment feels for the whole family, not just for the breadwinner,” said Stephen Lambert, who is the creator and executive producer of “The Fairy Jobmother.” “We focus, for example, on the impact of unemployment on the marriage.” “This show is about families and the stress of being unemployed,” he said. “With unemployment, it’s easy for a family to become dysfunctional. Obviously, the issue concerns everyone, but when you’re talking about the worries involved, a women’s network feels like a slightly more appropriate home.” Jennifer Davidson, an executive producer for Pie Town Pro-

ductions, the company that created “Downsized” for WEtv, would agree. “Female viewers are interested in relationships and in stories,” Davidson said. “So that’s what we concentrate on. We focus on family drama and on family dynamics, like the relationships between the children and the relationship between the children and their parents. “For example, we examined the relationship between the two stepsisters, one of whom gets a car from her well-to-do mother and one of whom doesn’t. And we explored how the girls deal with the idea that some people get things and others don’t.” In Davidson’s opinion, the Bruces were an ideal vehicle for exploring such personal and domestic issues. “We wanted to do a show that showed the total life shift that comes with economic problems,” she said. “But we didn’t want to be preachy or depressing. We wanted to look at one specific family, partly because smaller stories are so compelling. We wanted to focus on the idea of family. And when we found the Bruces, we realized right away that they were it. This family was really engaging, and they had so much to say.”

network is calling a “modern-day Brady Bunch.” This once-affluent family, which includes seven children from the parents’ previous marriages, will be seen fighting economic deprivation via a broad range of strategies, including Dumpster diving and searching for change under the sofa pillows. With two houses in foreclosure, thanks to the father’s collapsing contracting business, and a real chance the Bruces may not make the next month’s rent, it’s goodbye to cheerleading camp, hello to rolling pennies. Reality shows across the board have been forced to acknowledge the dismal state of the economy. But these two take direct aim at the issue of unemployment, and they propose very different approaches to hard times. For the family in “Downsized” the key, at least in the first episode, is small-bore economies (shorter showers, do-it-yourself haircuts) and pulling up bootstraps, even if it means rooting among dirty diapers in search of recyclables. For the “Fairy Jobmother” families — a different one each week — the key is finding some sort of employment, even a volunteer position, on the theory that who knows when an unpaid job might lead to a paid one. Despite the different strategies, the two series have both found

A new playhouse for an aging Pee-wee By Dave Itzkoff New York Times News Service

The Pied Piper was nowhere to be heard, and Santa Claus wouldn’t be coming to town for a few more weeks, but something irresistible had drawn a small crowd to the West Fourth Street basketball courts in lower Manhattan on a recent Thursday morning. Huddled in groups of two and three, a few dozen men and women in their 20s and 30s glanced at one another and at their smart phones, rereading the Twitter and Foursquare messages that directed them here, waiting for something to happen. Without fanfare, a white van sailed up to the curb, and from it emerged a thin, 58-year-old man wearing a gray suit, a tiny red bow tie and white loafers. The gathering parted as he stepped onto the blacktop, picked up a basketball and made a few graceless attempts at hurling it at a hoop. “Yeah, match that,” he said snidely, to laughter. As he returned to the van to be shuttled to his next mystery destination, one bystander after another felt compelled to shout at him some variation of these words, if not this exact message: Pee-wee Herman, I love you! The next afternoon Paul Reubens, the man who has played Pee-wee Herman for more than 30 years, was marveling at the previous day’s promotional stunt for his upcoming Broadway show, which had sent him whizzing around Manhattan while broadcasting his whereabouts on the Internet. The affection he had been shown throughout the day, Reubens said in his gentle whisper, was “so weird and so great at the same time.” “It was odd, and it was fantas-

“The Pee-wee Herman Show” opens on Broadway on Nov. 11. tic,” he continued. It is impossible to discuss Reubens without discussing Pee-wee Herman and duality: the entertainer who made a career of playing a boy in a man’s body, who turned an adult comedy show into family-friendly movies and a children’s TV series; the apparent innocent who was felled by a pair of decidedly grown-up sex scandals; and now, most improbably, the written-off washout on the verge of a major comeback. When “The Pee-wee Herman Show” opens on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theater on Nov. 11, Reubens said, it will complete a cycle of downfall and redemption not only for himself but for the blameless Pee-wee character from which he is inseparable. “I wrecked it to some degree, you know?” he said. “It got made into something different. The shine got taken off it.” He added: “At a certain point, I just wanted to have a better end to my career.”

Curaçao

The Floating Market in Willemstad, Curaçao, is where boats line the canal and fishermen lay out their catch for shoppers. Vendors live on the boats and bring tropical fruits and vegetables from Venezuela.

Continued from C1 Poverty and affluence are side by side as well, even in the touristy part of town along the harbor where the cruise ships dock. A prettily painted house sits next to one that is boarded up, a sheet of corrugated tin tearing loose from the roof. The property next to my hotel has jagged glass embedded along the top of the high concrete wall that surrounds it. Some homes have no indoor plumbing.

A bit of history To get my bearings, I sign up for a three-hour tour by PeterTrips, and right away I learn something about Curaçao’s tourism market: Three of us on the van are from the United States, the other four are from the Netherlands. From a hilltop south of Willemstad, our tour guide points out Spanish Waters, the bay where Spanish galleons once put ashore. At nearby Caracas Bay, we climb deteriorating stone steps to Fort Beekenburg, where Curaçao was defended from pirates and French and English invaders in the 17th and 18th centuries. Blo-blo lizards skitter through the cacti, and a little land crab raises its claws as if to thwart this invasion by tourists. At Fort Nassau, where thick walls now house one of Curaçao’s pricier restaurants, we get a spectacular view of the Schottegat lagoon. We see the Isla oil refinery, the Queen Juliana bridge stretching like a ribbon high above the harbor, a tugboat accompanying a freighter entering Santa Anna Bay, the deepwater channel that divides Willemstad. The Dutch West India Co. turned Willemstad into a center of trade in the late 1600s, and the harbor remains its economic heart. The port handles not only cruise ships but tankers headed to the refinery, which is operated by the Venezuelan state oil company. Willemstad grew up on the south side of Santa Anna Bay, in an area called Punda. Here I find the Jewish quarter and synagogue, the oldest in the Caribbean; the Maritime Museum, housed in the former Hotel Venezuela; stores that sell Dutch linens, European watches and blue-and-white Delft porcelain to tourists. At the Old Market, people sit at long, communal tables and eat baked whole snapper, fried plantains, goat stew, a polenta-like dish called funchi and the other traditional foods of Curaçao. Here also is the floating market, where boats line the canal and fishermen lay out their catch for shoppers. On the sidewalk, produce stalls are stacked high with tropical fruits and vegetables brought from Venezuela. The vendors live on these little boats. The waterfront street, the Handelskade, is lined with Dutch Colonial-style buildings painted in bright colors. This strip, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the iconic picture of Curaçao. According to local lore, the buildings were originally painted white. When the governor got a migraine headache and his physician blamed the glare reflecting off stark white buildings, the governor ordered the buildings painted with color. As the story goes, it later turned out that the doctor owned stock in the paint company.

If you go Getting there: American Airlines has two nonstop flights a day between Miami and Willemstad, a three-hour flight. Round-trip airfare in early December starts at $319. Information: www.curacao.com; 800-328-7222. Where to stay: Hotel Kura Hulanda (877-2643106; www.kurahulanda.com) in Otrobanda consists of renovated Dutch Colonial buildings clustered around a village square. Its sister property, Lodge Kura Hulanda, is at the western end of the island and caters to divers and snorkelers. Both are members of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Rooms at either start at $135 through Dec. 23; holiday rates from $360 in Otrabanda, from $350 at the lodge; from $170 after Jan. 2. Avila Hotel (800-747-8162; www

The slow season It’s early December, just before the start of the high season, when crowds are small and good hotel deals are available, but some tourist attractions are closed or open only a day or two a week. Two activities I had looked forward to, a jeep tour of Christoffel National Park and a cooking class at Angelica’s Kitchen, weren’t available. On the afternoon I arrive, I settle at an outdoor table along the Handelskade for a late lunch and people-watching. The menu is a mish-mash of Dutch, English and Spanish. The only words I have figured out are Broodje, which means sandwich, and tosti, a grilled sandwich. The menu lists an “old cheese” sandwich, which is apparently different from the ordinary cheese sandwich on the menu. What is old cheese, I ask the waitress. It’s old cheese, she says. Aged cheese? I venture. Old cheese, she says. I order the old cheese sandwich. It’s Gouda. From my waterfront seat I watch the swinging pedestrian bridge opening for boat traffic, teens doing skateboard tricks on the opposite side of the water, a guard screening people before he lets them enter the casino at Howard Johnson, a Holland America cruise ship departing, its passengers waving at us from the upper decks. Across the bay is Otrobanda, the “other side.” Here Jacob Gelt Dekker, a Dutch entrepreneur, renovated Dutch colonial houses from the 18th and 19th centuries and turned them into the Kura Hulanda, where I am staying. Mornings, I have coffee and yogurt in the courtyard, then wander through the complex, examining the many pieces of

It’s a slow night, and when I’m the only gambler left at my table, the manager keeps me company, entertaining me with stories about other casinos where he’s worked. The Kura Hulanda casino, he says, mostly draws locals. Then he moves on. If he meant to distract me from my cards with his chat, he has not succeeded. I leave a winner. One day I explore the Kura Hulanda museum, which displays the art and history of Africa, focusing on the slave trade. There are piles of leg and hand irons, irons that fit around the head and neck, sketches of torture inflicted on runaway slaves, drawings depicting lynchings, Ku Klux Klan robes. By the time I come to the stairs that descend into a model of the hold of a slave ship, I am too tearful to continue. A few blocks away are the remains of the Rif Fort, which once protected the harbor. The site is now occupied by the Renaissance Resort & Casino. On the opposite side of the water is Fort Amsterdam, which dates to the 1700s and houses government offices.

Island explorations Punda and Otrobanda are connected by two bridges. The Queen Emma is a pontoon bridge for pedestrians.

ship approaches, the bridge operator fires up the engine, and like a truck driver, steers the Punda end of the bridge a full 90 degrees to the opposite shore so that the length of the bridge is snug up against the Otrobanda side, leaving plenty of room for the ship to pass. The other bridge, the Queen Juliana, is narrow and nearly 200 feet high — enough for cruise ships to pass under. It is from this bridge that I leave Otrobanda to tour of the island in my rental car. I chose this day to drive around the island because three cruise ships are scheduled to dock in Willemstad. Two days earlier, I had visited the Senior Curaçao distillery, sampling the island’s namesake liqueur. After buses carrying passengers from just two cruise ships arrived, I had to elbow my way through the crowd of people edging their way toward the trays of samples lined up in tiny cafecito cups. The road that circles Curaçao is an easy day trip, and I’ve planned several stops: Christoffel National Park, Jaanchie’s for lunch, the Nena Sanchez art gallery, and the salt flats where a flock of flamingos hangs out. The temperature is in the low 80s, and the sun is fierce, so the park ranger recommends against trying to climb Mount Christoffel, which at nearly 1,300 feet is the highest point on the island. Instead, she suggests the loop road on the east side of the park and

A Troupial (Icterus icterus), a species of oriole, rests near the entrance to Jaanchi’s restaurant in Westpunt, Curaçao. points out some short walks. The first is an easy climb to a plateau with a panoramic view of Mount Christoffel on one side, the ocean on the other. I strain my eyes in hopes of seeing Bonaire, but there’s no sign of any land, and even the horizon is hard to distinguish amid dozens of shades of blue sky and sea. After another short drive, I follow a foot trail to caves with Indian drawings. Crude brick-colored drawings mark the entrance to one cave; other marks look like contemporary graffiti. On both of these walks, I pass people leaving as I enter, but there is no one else and I enjoy the solitude. The wind in the dividivi trees, the chatter of insects and the rustle of lizards in the underbrush are the only sounds. Jaanchie’s, a tourist attraction in itself, is near the northern tip of the island. Bird feeders hang near the restaurant entrance, and

I watch orange-breasted trupials and bare-eyed pigeons flitting from branch to feeder. After lunch — when I determine that the iguana’s aphrodisiacal effects are a myth — I head south along the western side of the island. Near the middle of the island, at an old plantation house that reputedly is haunted, is the gallery of Nena Sanchez, a Curaçao native whose works have been exhibited in Miami. Her scenes of the Caribbean, painted in bright turquoise, fuschia and sunny yellow, appeal to me, and I buy a small painting of hibiscus flowers. Across the road are the salinas, or salt ponds. I pause at a small monument honoring “freedom fighters” in the slave rebellion of 1795. Slaves worked the salt mines, and it was here that the heads of the rebellion’s leaders were displayed on stakes. Today the salt ponds are a sanctuary for a flock of flamingos. About a dozen are feeding now, dipping their beaks in the shallow water. It is dusk as I leave the salinas and drive back to Willemstad. My mind remains at the salt ponds, though — they are one more unique piece of the history of this little island. Then I think of the flamingos. Like so much of Curaçao’s population, this group has roots elsewhere — the flock migrated here from Bonaire in the mid-1980s.

A lazy hiker’s guide to the Appalachian Trail By Ellen Creager

Larry Kass, of Raleigh, N.C., hiked 370 miles this summer on the Appalachian Trail. Here, he walks across the summit of Max Patch Mountain. Sightseers can also drive to the base of the hill and walk up.

Detroit Free Press

PISGAH NATIONAL FOREST, N.C. — Some might call it cheating. I’m up on Max Patch, a gem of the Appalachian Trail. Max Patch is a treeless, grassy mountain dome with a 360-degree view, much like the spot where Maria twirled around in the opening of “The Sound of Music.” For a bit, I’m totally alone. I sit on the grass, humming. Tiny gnats fly by. A paint box of October color splashes the mountains. The blue Great Smokies lie beyond. Then, here comes a man walking a little white dog named Ivy Jane. Here’s a young couple asking if I can take their picture. Here’s a classroom of schoolchildren on a field trip. Max Patch is a hiker highlight along the 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail. But I didn’t hike here. I drove from Asheville, parked in a gravel lot and walked up a hill. Is it cheating to just show up on the Appalachian Trail and grab the scenery without paying the price of hiking long hours or days? If it is, I have a lot of company. The trail has 2 million visitors a year. But fewer than 2,000 are hikers traveling end-to-end on a five- to six-month odyssey. About 16 percent are section hikers, attempting the whole trail, but over many years. The rest are day users or just staying a night or two. The average hike? Less than 20 miles. And some visitors are around for only a few minutes, says Brian King of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, which takes care of the trail. “A lot of people will stay for an hour and go in and walk a half-mile. There are an amazing number of people who do that. Or somebody is driving from Ohio to Florida and sees a sign. They run out 25 yards, step onto it, run back, then blog and say they were on the Appalachian Trail.”

Hiking for fun On many Americans’ bucket list, the AT — as hikers call it — was completed in 1937. It winds through 14 states from Springer Mountain, Ga., to Mount Katahdin, Maine. Up on Max Patch, two day-hikers crest the hill carrying thick walking sticks. Chris Bishop and Brian Landers, of Chuckey, Tenn., would love to hike the whole trail at once, “but I’ve got twins at home,” says Bishop, pulling out a picture of his 2-year-old daughters. “We do it just for fun,” says Landers, saying they usually try to do the trail in 13-mile chunks. “We know a man at home who hiked the whole thing, and I felt sorry for him — he looked like he didn’t have any toes left,” Landers adds.

One T-shirt for sale at Bluff Mountain Outfitters in Hot Springs, N.C., reads, “I’ve Hiked the Entire (Width of the) Appalachian Trail.” Then a hiker comes by with a really heavy pack, his golden retriever pulling ahead. Larry Kass, of Raleigh, N.C., had planned to go 20-something miles that day and went 370 miles this summer: His goal is to hike the entire trail in sections. Kass does not begrudge sharing Max Patch or its view with day visitors. The AT is big enough for all — even a few strange folks who he thinks live on the trail and “who seem to have no destination,” he says. And Max Patch is the scene of one of his all-time favorite memories. It was in June, at night, and the grass was still tall. “At night, this whole place was covered with fireflies,” he says. “There were so many lights you couldn’t tell the sky from the ground.” Max Patch is bald of trees because it used to be a farmer’s field for grazing cattle. The U.S. Forest Service keeps it mowed. Up here, as along the entire route, the AT is marked with posts, each emblazoned with a streak of white paint. Those posts look like a fence line across the top of the world.

Town stops Much of the Appalachian Trail is backcountry — and access points are limited. But the trail also cuts directly through some towns (see below). Just 18 miles north of Max Patch is one of those towns, Hot Springs.

If you go • Getting there: Max Patch and Hot Springs have no airports. Lazy Appalachian Trail visitors should base themselves in Asheville, N.C., with its trendy inns, cell service and microbrews. • Driving tips: The drive from Asheville to Hot Springs is 50 minutes on excellent roads. From there, it’s another 17 miles, about 45 minutes, south to Max Patch (wooded drive, gravel uphill roads, bad signage, so get good directions before you head out — I’ve posted them on my blog, www.freep .com/traveldiva). • Other tips: Mineral bath at the Hot Springs Resort and Spa is $12 for 1 hour (www.nchotsprings.com, 828-622-7676). The trail goes right down the town’s main street, leading out of the woods onto the road, across the street and down the sidewalk. The trail is marked with white blazes and inlaid symbols. The first place hikers see is the Smoky Mountain Diner. Many a hiker has spilled into the diner, dirty and hungry, yearning for a Skillet Breakfast piled high with a zillion calories of grub. In August, the diner delivered five pizzas to a Boy Scout troop up on the Appalachian Trail. “Food is such an important thing to hikers,” says owner Genia Hayes-Peterson. She knows. She has hiked 850 miles of the AT herself over several years. She trained for the trek by hiking twice a day with a backpack full of 25 pounds of dried beans. In Hot Springs, the trail passes the library, the post office, the hiker supply shop and the Hot Springs Resort and Spa — where for 12 bucks you can soak in a pri-

vate, sheltered outdoor tub next to a babbling river. You also can hike to Lovers’ Leap or fish in the French Broad River. It’s also a good place for souvenirs. One popular T-shirt read “I HIKED THE ENTIRE APPALACHIAN TRAIL” — but in small type after the word “ENTIRE” is the phrase “width of the.” But don’t get the idea I just lazed around up here. Up on Max Patch, I did hike, staying for two hours, walking first one direction then the other. I admit I was gasping just climbing the hill from the parking lot — I wasn’t used to the near 5,000-foot elevation. And boy, I thought I was in shape — until I met a couple heading up as I headed down. They had huge, heavy packs. They were at least 20 years older than I. And they weren’t even breathing hard. If I weren’t so lazy, I’d want to be them.

Cool Appalachian Trail towns Many towns are near the Appalachian Trail, but only a handful are smackdab on it. Here are the most notable, according to Brian King, spokesman for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy: • Hot Springs, N.C. (population 690): Small but pretty outdoors mecca, and “the trail runs right down the sidewalk.” • Damascus, Va. (population 1,070): Bills itself as the friendliest town on the trail; its Trail Days festival in May is a hiker favorite: “If you don’t include Damascus, the hikers will go crazy.” • Kent, Conn. (population 3,000): Just named by Yankee magazine as best leaf-peeping town in New England: “A little high end but really nice. Right on Route 7.” • Harpers Ferry, W.Va. (population 307): Headquarters of the conservancy and a psychological midway point for hikers. • Boiling Springs, Pa. (population 2,770): A lake in the middle of town bubbles up from a spring: “A wonderful little town.” • Hanover, N.H. (population 11,070): Home of Dartmouth College. “A high-end place; they have blazes (AT markings) directly on the sidewalk.”

Immortalizing your newborn baby’s footprint in bronze as a keepsake might be a longcherished tradition, but another kind of imprint has become much more popular — the digital kind. If you’re an American parent of a toddler, he or she most likely already has a digital footprint. A popular new baby gift is registering children’s full names as domain names so they can own them for the rest of their lives. A whopping 92 percent of kids now have some sort of online presence by age 2, according to one recent study. Moms and dads post endless streams of photos on Facebook. Seven percent of babies even have their own e-mail addresses. But is this display of parental pride an invasion of privacy that can hurt kids down the road?

PARKER, Colo. — Haylee Moore is three weeks from having her third child, and autism runs in her family. Moore’s mother has 12 siblings, four of whom have children with autism. “Autism is a little bit scary,� she said. Moore, 33, who lives in Parker, southeast of Denver, has applied to be part of a longitudinal study announced Wednesday that she hopes will answer questions about how the disorder is transmitted among families. The National Children’s Study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, will track children here and 104 other communities nationwide from before birth to the age of 21 to see how their environment affects their health. “I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to hopefully get some answers about some of these diseases and disorders that we don’t know what causes them and how they are passed through families,� Moore said. The Colorado study is being done through a partnership including the Colorado School of Public Health, University of Colorado School of Medicine and the Battelle Memorial Institute. Officials are hoping to sign up 100,000 families from the 105 communities, including 1,000 subjects in Douglas County where Moore lives. The research will be the largest long-term study ever done of environmental and genetic influences in children in the entire country. “We hope to better understand how children, their genes and their environment interact to affect the growth

Initially, participants will be asked questions about their children’s environment. Some may be asked to submit blood, urine and hair samples. Visits to their homes also will take place. Researchers hope to better understand such diseases and disorders as autism, diabetes, obesity, asthma, pediatric cancers, learning disabilities and even injuries.

When couples fight over design projects

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

By David Colman New York Times News Service

It all came down to a coffee table. On an otherwise normal fall day about 10 years ago, DD Allen, the fashionable New York designer, was showing a married couple, whose apartment she was redoing, some Japanese furniture at Naga Antiques on the Upper East Side. “Such a Zen space,” she recalled wryly. A tension between the two, which Allen had noticed earlier, started to mount. They began to bicker, then quarrel, then fight. Then it turned into a no-holdsbarred meltdown right out of “War of the Roses.” “It got really ugly,” Allen said. “We were looking at this coffee table, and suddenly it became the symbol of everything that was wrong between them. We were just talking about where it would go and whether it would work, but it became like, ‘If you think that, you don’t understand anything about me.’” Luckily, there was no china handy. Finally, the screaming match subsided, and the couple stormed off in different directions. A few days went by. Then, Allen said, “We got a call from the husband wanting to resell all the furniture.” Few marital dust-ups over decor actually end in divorce. But as Allen and her peers frankly acknowledge, such scuffles are so common that marriage counseling services could have its own line in the standard design contract. Designers have rockier psychological issues to contend with than do most client-based professionals simply because they effect transformations that — for all the plaster and wallpaper that go into them — can get almost as personal as psychoanalysis. But help may be on the way. An architectural designer in Round Top, Texas, Christopher Travis, who has long given a kind

SUDOKU SOLUTION IS ON C8

JUMBLE SOLUTION IS ON C8

Stacy Sodolak / New York Times News Service

Christopher Travis developed the software Truehome to help couples expose deep-seated domestic preferences that they may not even be aware of. of personality test to his clients in an effort to probe and avoid these collisions, is planning to roll out a software version of his tool in December. For his trademarked product, which is called Truehome and is currently a thick sheaf of paperwork, Travis’ client couples answer a long list of questions that are intended to expose deep-seated domestic preferences that they may not even be aware of. “It’s about how to reduce friction,” Travis said of the software, which he hopes to license to other design professionals. “I ask them, where in your home do you find your spouse particularly irritating? It’s easier to remodel houses than people.” Frequently, he said, the solution is just some personal space that they can call their own. “I give a lot of guys mancaves,” he said. “But we’ve also found that there’s a huge desire for women-caves.” Whether Truehome will catch on is anyone’s guess, but what is clear is no designer, even the most respected, is immune to the problem it addresses. Mario Buatta, Victoria Hagan, Robert Couturier, Lee Mindel — they’ve

all seen their share of couples’ spats. “You’re spending so much time with these people in their homes — you hear everything,” Buatta said. “They can disagree over the simplest things, a fabric or a wallpaper or a bill. If you’re smart you never take sides. I leave the room and let them square things off.” As Couturier observed, “If the man and the woman want the same things, it’s fine; it’s when they want different things that it gets bad. You know, maybe the woman wants a passport into society, and the husband wants a house to live in. I’ve witnessed battles where you think they’re going to divorce! You just sit there, saying, ‘Please God, take me.’” Daniel Sachs, another Manhattan designer, knows well the fidgety feeling Couturier describes. “I’ve sat through things that are so shockingly embarrassing you wouldn’t believe it,” Sachs said. “We did a client who in the middle of the meeting just went off on her husband, accusing him of all kinds of things, having been with prostitutes, as though no one was in the room.”

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Oct. 31, 2010: This year, you will become more conscious of what you have to offer as well as what skills and talents you might like to develop.

Smith

Jay C. Smith, a longtime volunteer for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), with CASA program coordinator Ali Mostue, left, and program manager Veronica Theriot at the CASA office last week.

Continued from C1 Pam Fortier, executive director of CASA of Central Oregon, explains that a child comes under CASA’s auspices after someone has reported suspicion of neglect or abuse. “Once that case is investigated, and it’s determined that, yes, there has been child abuse and/or neglect, then a petition is filed and the case goes to court. At that time, a judge determines if that child is to become a ward of the court and under legal custody of DHS (Department of Human Services). It’s at that time that CASA is appointed.”

Pete Erickson The Bulletin

Court’s eyes and ears A special advocate looks into the child’s life to inform the judge and, ultimately, get the child placed in a safe, permanent home, according to the website www.casaforchildren.org. In effect, CASA becomes the eyes and ears of the court, as well as an independent voice advocating for the child’s best interest, Fortier says. CASA of Central Oregon works on behalf of children in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties. CASA volunteers such as Smith interview the child, foster parents and parents to make recommendations as to where a child is placed. “As I work on a case, one of the things I really work hard in doing is, number one, seeing the people face to face,” Smith says. Once assigned a case, he contacts everyone involved in the child’s life. “I obviously want to see the child. I want to meet the parents, if possible. I want to get to know the foster parents. I want to meet relatives. I want to meet people at the school, like teachers and counselors. I want to meet the caseworker at DHS. I want to meet the therapist that’s been assigned.” He also pays visits to the child’s home to see the living situation. “We may get surprised sometimes, but I really try to be aware of what’s going on. That’s one of the advantages of contacting everyone.” At hearings to decide a child’s placement, the judge will usually call on the CASA last, Fortier explains, “because they always

have the most up-to-date information, no bias, no agenda.” “The CASA really has the opportunity to know what’s going on,” Smith says. “Normally, in my cases I work on, I know more about what’s going on than anyone else.”

‘A lot of responsibility’ Smith says that a child’s special advocate is sometimes the only person in a kid’s corner when his or her fate is being decided. When he began, he had just one case. Currently, he’s working with six kids. “Normally, we have one to three cases, but sometimes a case comes back,” meaning sometimes a child returns into the court system. “When you go to court and look at the situation, everybody has a particular slant: the parents, the foster parents, the lawyers; all have a particular angle. The CASA is the only person, I feel, that goes with what’s in the child’s best interest. The child may or may not agree. I’ve gone to court where, what I’ve said, the child thinks, ‘That’s a great idea,’ and sometimes the child definitely disagrees: ‘I want to go home.’” Being a CASA may sound like a full-time job, but Fortier says advocates usually volunteer about 10 to 15 hours a month. Court hearings are about every 90 days, so a volunteer can prepare well in advance. “It’s a lot of responsibility,” she says, “but it’s really important

Because of privacy issues, Smith is careful not to name names or get too specific when he talks about the children he’s worked with. However, he does mention that he has a case with one child for whom he’s been advocating for eight years. “It’s gone much too long,” Smith says, sounding more determined than resigned. “I was with him and his two siblings. His siblings have been adopted for various reasons ... he is still in the foster care system. But at least he knows me and I know him, and we’ll keep working on his situation.” That child’s caseworker and foster care have both changed many times. Of the latter, “I’ve heard the number 18. It may be a little less than that, but it’s too many times,” Smith says. “I sometimes, in that

‘The one constant’

when you look at the number of kids who were in foster care last year.” In 2009, there were more than 300 kids in foster care and a total of 360 victims of abuse or neglect in Central Oregon. Drugs and alcohol, domestic violence and mental health are among the reasons children are removed from their homes and come into the CASA program. “Parents have lots of issues, of all kinds,” Smith says. “The kids are who suffer.” The average child in foster care moves at least three times, and attends nine different schools before the age of 18, says Fortier, citing national statistics. Foster kids are also 53 percent more likely to become juvenile delinquents, 38 percent more likely to be arrested as adults and 38 percent more likely to become violent criminals.

particular case ... refer to myself as ‘the historian,’” he adds. “So it’s the CASA that is the one constant person for the child,” Fortier says. Says Smith, “I’m sure you’ve read articles ... about some of the terrible things that have happened to children, and people say, ‘Oh, my gosh, we just didn’t know.’ The Department of Human Services — certainly, most of the people I work with there — do a good job, but they’re very busy, they have too many cases, they’re overburdened.” So, in a sense, is CASA of Central Oregon, which has 89 advocates, with a goal to recruit and train 60 more in what’s left of 2010. Training requires 30 hours of classroom time, four hours of courtroom observation and a background check.

Keeping busy Smith, who has a grown son and daughter, still has time to travel with his wife. They spent the entire month of April 2009 in Iran. This year, they went to Europe, including Belgium and the Netherlands, “because Yvonne wanted to see the tulips.” In September, they went to Charleston, S.C., for a reunion with several other “Kodak cou-

ples” with whom they had attended the New York World’s Fair in 1965. “And I live vicariously,” jokes Fortier. Smith also volunteers as a language tutor, working with Chinese students through Central Oregon Community College. And he volunteers as an umpire in the University of Oregon’s track program. CASA “keeps you busy,” he says, smiling. “Being a CASA, it’s interesting, it’s challenging, sometimes very frustrating. It can be very fulfilling when you get children moving in the right direction. It’s hard work sometimes.” Right now, there are 82 kids who need someone as reliable as Smith in their lives. “If you have some time and enjoy volunteering, CASA is something that should be considered,” he says. “We have a lot of children that are in the system because of negligence and abuse, and really need an advocate for what’s in their best interest, and really need help. It’s something that you can do, and you can help these children, and you can really feel good about what you’re doing.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or at djasper@bendbulletin.com.

COMING M O N DAY ‘Cycling Central’ is set to join Bulletin lineup Starting with tomorrow’s edition, The Bulletin’s sports section on Mondays will feature a new theme: cycling in Central Oregon. Look for “Cycling Central,” which will be anchored by Bulletin cycling writer Heather Clark’s weekly column (which moves from Tuesdays) and will include other cyclingrelated news, a calendar of local and regional cycling events, results involving area races and riders, and other features about all the types of cycling in which we participate and compete here on the High Desert. Cycling Central replaces High Gear, our weekly focus on auto racing. But the change need not cause motor-sports enthusiasts to blow a gasket. We will continue to provide a full report on the same range of big-time racing from all the major circuits — NASCAR, Formula One, IndyCar, NHRA and more. And we will continue to provide reports on the local carracing scene, such as results from Madras Dragstrip and the Autocross Club of Central Oregon. Whether your preferred wheels are propelled by two legs or 750 horses, we think you’ll be satisfied with the changes. —Bill Bigelow, Bulletin sports editor

Storm, Cougars advance boys, girls teams to state Bulletin staff report ASHLAND — Summit swept the boys and girls races at Saturday’s Class 5A Central Oregon/Southern Oregon district cross-country meet, but the story of the day was a classy move by the Ashland boys team that apparently will send Mountain View to next week’s 5A state championships. While the Storm easily won the boys race with 24 points — Summit sophomore Travis Neuman bested Eagle Point senior Tyler VanDyke by less

than three seconds for the individual district win — Ashland and Mountain View were neck and neck for the second and final team berth to state. The Cougars appeared to have edged out the host Grizzlies. But after the race Mountain View sophomore Chris McBride, the Cougars’ first finisher, was disqualified for making contact with Ashland’s Sam Jackson at the finish line as the two runners battled for fourth place.

Blazers confirm no deal for Oden before deadline NEW YORK — A team spokesman says the Portland Trail Blazers won’t offer a contract extension to former No. 1 pick Greg Oden before the Monday deadline. The Oregonian reported Friday that the Blazers Portland Trail and Oden’s Blazer center represenGreg Oden tatives agreed there would be no extension, making the oft-injured center the first top pick since Kwame Brown not to get one at the end of his rookie contract. Teams have until Monday to reach deals with first-round picks from the 2007 draft. But Portland hasn’t seen enough of Oden, who has played in only 82 games since he was picked ahead of Kevin Durant. He has been sidelined since fracturing his left patella last Dec. 5. Oden will be a restricted free agent next summer and the Blazers will be able to match any offers for him. — The Associated Press

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: WORLD SERIES

Back in Texas, Rangers take Game 3 from Giants By Ben Walker The Associated Press

ARLINGTON, Texas — Back in Texas. Back in the World Series. The Rangers, behind emerging October ace Colby Lewis, came home and threw themselves the biggest tailgate party of them all, beating San Francisco 4-2 on Saturday night and cutting the Giants’ Series edge to 2-1.

Longhorns, Aggies, Horned Frogs — sorry. This was a night to celebrate baseball. “We wanted to get back home. We felt comfortable here,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “We knew we could finally put a good game together, and we did.” Psyched by pep talks from former President George W. Bush

and spurred by a heater from Nolan Ryan, the Rangers became the first team from Texas to win a Series game. Rookie Mitch Moreland hit an early three-run homer, Josh Hamilton later launched a 426-foot shot and the Rangers posted a Series win that took the franchise 50 years to achieve. Just in time, in fact, coming off

two thumpings in San Francisco. “We’re still down one game, but it’s shifted,” Hamilton said. Game 3 marked the first time the Series visited the Metroplex. On a college football weekend, the parking lots filled up early with flying pigskins, fine BBQ smoke and fans checking the scores of their alma maters. See Rangers / D3

Hasay covered the 6-kilometer course in 19 minutes, 44.95 seconds, to outlast runner-up Kathy Kroeger of Stanford. Behind Kroeger (19:49.43), Stanford won the women’s team championship with 62 points to 65 for runner-up Arizona. Oregon scored 68 points to tie with host Washington for third place. Oregon State, led by Sandra Martinez (42nd place, 21:16.38), placed eighth in the 10-team women’s field with 245 points. In the five-team men’s competition, Stanford placed first with 25 points to runner-up Oregon’s 56. Elliott Heath led a top-three Stanford sweep with a time of 23:00.46 on the 8-kilometer men’s course. Oregon’s top finisher was Luke Puskedra, who was fourth overall in 23:05.80.

Basketball • Spurs’ Parker signs extension: Tony Parker swore he didn’t want to leave San Antonio, and he has a new contract to finally prove it. The Spurs signed Parker to a multiyear extension Saturday that preserves their three-time NBA champion core of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and the star point guard, and puts an abrupt end to what would’ve undoubtedly been a season of speculation. The extension is for $50 million over four years, according to Parker’s website. Rumors swirled over the summer about where the 28-year-old former All-Star might end up after this season, but Parker has insisted that he and his wife, actress Eva Longoria Parker, wanted to remain in San Antonio.

Favre wore a walking boot the first three days of the week and did not practice until Friday, when he only participated on a limited basis. Favre was injured in a loss to the Green Bay Packers last weekend.

Tennis • Clijsters advances to WTA final: U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters was unhurt in a “scary” car accident before her match Saturday and advanced to the WTA Championships final by defeating Samantha Stosur 7-6 (3), 6-1. Clijsters said a truck “came out of nowhere” at a roundabout and hit the right front door of her official WTA Tour car. Clijsters said she was not injured, but her manager suffered minor cuts. “Obviously, it was a little bit of a shakeup. We’re all fine,” Clijsters said after the match. “I was really just kind of trying to kind of switch my mental state and focus on the match. Clijsters will face top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki in the season-ending final on Sunday. The 20-year-old Dane routed No. 2 Vera Zvonareva 7-5, 6-0 in the other semifinal. Wozniacki is the youngest player to reach the final since Maria Sharapova won at 17 in 2004.

Rangers Continued from D1 But Lewis and the Rangers showed there was still a place in the Lone Star State for another sport, too. And they certainly brought more joy than the NFL’s 1-5 Cowboys, whose gleaming stadium is just a few Hamilton-sized drives away. “I was just really excited to come back home. I knew with these fans out here we had a definite advantage,” Lewis said. “It was just a thing of comfortability.” Bush toured the Texas clubhouse before the game — previously a Rangers part-owner, he visited with individual players. Then Big Tex himself jazzed the largest crowd in the history of Rangers Ballpark by cranking up for the ceremonial first toss. The Rangers’ part-owner flung a 68 mph fastball — pretty swift for a 63-year-old guy wearing dress pants and a tie. Lewis took over after that. He worked around solo home runs by Cody Ross — the fifth of the

postseason for the NL championship series MVP — in the seventh inning and Andres Torres in the eighth. The Giants eventually brought the tying run to the plate, but reliever Darren O’Day retired Buster Posey to end the eighth. Washington finally brought in Neftali Feliz, and the rocketarmed closer pitched a perfect ninth for his first save of the postseason. Washington was criticized in the first two games at San Francisco for leaving Feliz in the bullpen while the Giants broke away. Feliz struck out two, cheered on by Ryan, Bush and their wives in the front row next to the Texas dugout. As fireworks exploded overhead and Texas swing music blared, Bush leaned over and kissed Ryan’s wife, Ruth. The Rangers looked more like themselves with Vladimir Guerrero back in the DH spot. The other Texas big bats chimed in, with Hamilton hitting his fifth home run of the postseason. Moreland homered from the ninth spot in the lineup, connecting in the second for a 3-0 lead. “It’s a different league, and

Blazers beat Knicks, improve to 3-0 The Associated Press NEW YORK — The elaborate pregame festivities were designed to emphasize that these are the “new” New York Knicks. Crunch time was the same ol’ story. The unbeaten Portland Trail Blazers spoiled the Knicks’ home opener, erasing a nine-point deficit in the final 5½ minutes for a 100-95 victory Saturday night. “We felt the pressure was still on them, this is their home opener,” guard Brandon Roy said. “We just wanted to keep consistent with our pressure and with our effort, and down the stretch we felt we forced them into some tough shots and we were able to get a win.” Roy scored 29 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 10 rebounds. Andre Miller had 19 points and 10 assists as the Trail Blazers improved to 3-0. Aldridge hit the tiebreaking free throw with 25.5 seconds left, and both he and Miller made two apiece in the final halfminute as the Blazers weren’t fazed by a close game after two double-digit victories to open the season. “You don’t want to have to continue to do that, but these guys are not dropping their heads,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “They’re playing a 48-minute game.” Wilson Chandler finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks, who made only one field goal after taking a 92-83 lead with 5:31 remaining. Amare Stoudemire scored 18 points but turned it over six times in his home debut. Raymond Felton, also making his Madison Square Garden debut with the Knicks, scored 16 points. It was encouraging home start for the Knicks — until crunch time, when none of their new additions could find the basket. “We just didn’t score. We were up nine. They made some nice shots. Things didn’t go well for us,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said. New York’s lead was gone after Portland rallied to grab a 95-94 advantage on Miller’s three-pointer with 2:08 to play. Felton’s foul shot tied it with 1:23 remaining, and it stayed that way until Aldridge was fouled on an offensive rebound and made one free throw for a 96-95 lead with 25.5 seconds left. Marcus Camby blocked Felton’s drive, Aldridge made another free throw, and the Knicks lost a chance to tie when a ball that was originally called out of bounds on Portland with 6.5 seconds left was overturned when instant replay showed it was

Miller then made two free throws to put it away. “We’re still getting used to each other, still trying to get that chemistry, but things didn’t go our way,” Felton said. “I think we made some good plays, some good calls. It’s a tough loss, especially when you get a six-, seven-point lead going with 2½ minutes left in the game. It’s tough to lose a game like that.” It was an all-too familiar finish for a team trying to move away from its awful recent past. The Knicks have 10 new players on the roster as they try to return to the postseason for the first time since 2004. New York shares the league’s longest current playoff drought with Minnesota and is mired in a franchise-worst stretch of nine straight losing seasons. Boxing ring announcer Michael Buffer introduced the Knicks before the game, saying it was time to “turn the page to a new chapter of the New York Knicks.” The first quarter was nothing new at all. The Knicks surrendered 58 percent shooting, hit only 36 percent themselves, and trailed by as many as 10 points. The lead was still 10 midway though the second before reserve Chandler led a 16-3 run that gave New York a 42-39 lead on Felton’s

Nelson tops Champions Tour event in Texas The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO — Larry Nelson made a 10-foot birdie putt on the final hole Saturday for a 4-under 67 and a one-stroke lead over Jay Don Blake, Steve Lowery and Chien Soon Lu in the AT&T Championship, the Champions Tour’s final fullfield event of the year. The 63-year-old Nelson, who won the last of his 19 Champions Tour titles in 2004, rebounded on 18 after lipping out a 4-footer and settling for bogey on No. 17. He had a 10-under 132 total on the Oak Hills Country Club course in the event’s final year at the A.J. Tillinghast-designed layout. “I got through,” Nelson said. “I was pleasantly surprised. To have a chance to win and have the lead at my age, it’s terrific.” Blake shot a 64, his best round on the 50-and-over tour. Lowery had a 67, and Chien shot a 68. John Cook, the 2007 and 2008 winner, had a 69 to join Jeff Sluman (66), Rod Spittle (68) and Mark Wiebe (69) at 8 under. Olin Browne (67) was 7 under, and Charles Schwab Cup leader Bernhard Langer (67) was 6 under. Hale Irwin, who matched his age Friday with a 65 for a share of the first-round lead, also was 6 under after a 71.

that’s the American League,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Their guy got a big hit.” No team in World Series history has overcome a 3-0 deficit and now Texas won’t have to try, either. Rangers starter Tommy Hunter, especially good at home, faces rookie Madison Bumgarner in Game 4 on Sunday night. Lewis picked up where he left off in the AL championship series, where he finished off the defending champion Yankees in Game 6. He’s 3-0 this postseason, all of his wins coming after a Texas loss. Lewis allowed five hits in 7 2⁄3 innings and struck out six. He stopped a Giants team that had become the first NL team to score at least nine runs in back-to-back Series game. “We needed a well-pitched job,” Washington said. Moreland, promoted to the majors in late July, won a tough at-bat against Jonathan Sanchez and homered on the ninth pitch. “I knew I had a runner in scoring position, so he was going to try to pitch me tough and I fouled off some off speed stuff and just

GOLF ROUNDUP Also on Saturday: Two from Northern Ireland tied for lead SOTOGRANDE, Spain — Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell shot a 1-over 72 on Saturday in windy conditions for a share of the third-round lead in the Andalucia Masters with countryman Gareth Maybin. Maybin had a 70 at Valderrama to match McDowell, the U.S. Open champion, at 6 under. Ireland’s Damien McGrane (70) and Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez (71) were 2 under, and Spain’s Sergio Garcia (69) and Thomas Bjorn (71) were 1 under. South Korean leads in home country INCHEON, South Korea — South Korea’s Song-Hee Kim birdied four holes in a row on the front nine and finished with her second straight 4-under 68 for a one-stroke lead over defending champion Na Yeon Choi in the LPGA Hana Bank Championship. Choi also shot a 68 on Sky 72 Golf Club’s Ocean Course. Vicky Hurst was third at 6 under after a 70. Juli Inkster, the 50-year-old Hall of Famer who bogeyed the final hole last week in Malaysia to finish a stroke behind winner Jimin Kang, was three strokes back at 5 under after a 68. Inkster is trying to be-

tried to battle back, and I got the fastball,” Moreland said. Nelson Cruz opened the Texas second with a double off the center-field wall and eighth-place hitter Bengie Molina drew a walk. It was trouble time for Sanchez — he owned the best hits-to-innings ratio in the NL this year, yet also led the league in walks and can unravel quickly. Moreland hung in, fouling off four straight 2-2 pitches and barely getting a piece on a couple of them. He then took a smooth swing sent a liner far into the right-field seats for his first career home run against a left-hander. It was the big hit the Rangers needed to get back into the Series. The crowd roared and Ryan stood up, thrust his right arm in the air and hollered. Hamilton gave his boss another thrill in the fifth. A bit jumpy at the plate early in the game, the probable AL MVP patiently waited for his pitch and launched a drive deep into the lower deck in right-center field. “I felt like tonight I just stayed square and covered the ball,” he said.

Crane leads PGA Tour event in Asia KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia— Ben Crane birdied three of the last four holes for a 5-under 66 and a two-stroke lead in the Asia Pacific Classic, the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in Southeast Asia. Crane had a 16-under 197 total at The Mines Resort and Golf Club. Sweden’s Carl Pettersson, the Canadian Open winner, was second after a 66.

Players try to earn PGA Tour card at Nationwide Tour Championship CHARLESTON, S.C. — Brendan Steele put himself in great position to earn a 2011 PGA Tour card, shooting a 7-under 65 to take a five-stroke lead in the season-ending Nationwide Tour Championship. No. 30 on the money list entering the tournament, Steele needs only to move into the top 25 to earn a spot on the big tour. The winner will receive $180,000 from the $1 million purse. The 27-year-old former University of California-Riverside player had a 14-under 202 total on the Daniel Island Club’s Ralston Creek course. James Hahn (67) and Colt Knost (70) were tied for second.

Oregon knocks off USC in L.A.

Crook County’s Foley takes first at Greater Oregon League meet Bulletin staff report BAKER CITY — Make it three victories for Crook County’s Kellie Foley. Foley, who already had two first-place results under her belt this season, has finished no worse than third in 5,000-meter girls cross-country meets in 2010. Saturday was no different for the senior harrier who posted the top girls time of the day at the Class 4A Greater Oregon League district meet while leading her squad to first place in the team scoring. Foley covered the hilly course at Baker City’s Quail Ridge Golf Course in 20 minutes, 37 seconds, nearly two minutes faster than runner-up finisher Jackie Wanta of La Grande (22:28). Crook County won the event with 15 points. Baker, the only other complete girls team at the meet, took second with 50 points. “It’s great to be going to state for the first time in a long time,” said Crook County coach Tracy Smith. The Cowgirls logged seven runners among the top-10 finishers. Kelley Thurman placed third (22:36), Brooke Buswell took fourth (23:04), Danielle Skranak was fifth (24:28), Katie Wood came in seventh (25:27), Taylor Walker ended the race in ninth (25:50) and Andrea Ryan was 10th (25:54). The Crook County boys team finished fourth overall with 82 points behind a strong performance by Jordan Dunn. The Cowboy junior placed sixth in 18:22 and missed qualifying for the state meet by just three seconds. Only the top five finishers are granted berths to the state meet as individuals. Baker, led by race winner Nik Maszk (17:24), won the boys meet with 33 points. The Cowgirls will return to action Saturday for the Class 4A cross-country state meet at Eugene’s Lane Community College. In other prep events Saturday: VOLLEYBALL Redmond . . . . . . . . . . . 25-22-25-25 McKay. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 23-25-12-13 REDMOND — Aubrey Nitschelm posted a team-high 10 kills and went 10 for 11 from the

Justine Callen added nine kill while Natalie Nigg and Chloe Payne each recorded eight kills for Redmond. Jessica Nurge led the Panther defense, registering 18 digs in addition to going 16 for 16 from the service line. Redmond will play a first-round state playoff game on Wednesday, most likely on the road, against an opponent who has yet to be determined.

The Cowgirls received strong play from their freshmen, who helped elevate the home team to their 14th win of the season. Hannah Troutman went 15 for 16 serving with three aces, Jena Ovens recorded four digs, and Maddie Lindburg showed good passing form, said Crook County coach Rosie Honl. Sophomore Makayla Lindburg posted 14 kills, served 12 of 13 from the line and recorded one ace while Marissa Pope led the Cowgirls in kills with 15. The Cowgirls most likely will host a first-round playoff game on Saturday.

Megan Minke led the Outlaws with 10 kills and Kaity Douglass added 33 assists on the day. Sisters is expected to host a Class 4A first round state tournament match on Saturday.

Redmond scored again 10 minutes into the second half when Sanchez converted a Francisco Altarmirao pass into a goal. The Panthers (7-3-2 overall) will play a 6A state play-in game on Tuesday, most likely at David Douglas, said Redmond coach Jason Clark.

LOS ANGELES — Southern California really thought it had figured out how to stop Oregon’s high-octane offense when the Trojans took a third-quarter lead on the nation’s top-ranked team. Turns out the Ducks were only pausing on the way to another convincing win. LaMichael James rushed for 239 yards and three touchdowns, Darron Thomas threw three of his four scoring passes to Jeff Maehl, and No. 1 Oregon roared back from a second-half deficit with a 53-32 victory over the 24th-ranked Trojans on Saturday night. Thomas passed for 288 yards and Maehl had eight catches for a career-high 145 yards for the fleet-footed Ducks (8-0, 4-0 Pac-10), who racked up a total of 599 yards in yet another barnburning offensive performance. Oregon still trailed in the third

quarter for just the second time all season after USC scored two touchdowns in 2½ minutes to take a 32-29 lead. “That’s a little different for us, especially in the second half, but we just kept pushing,” Maehl said. “We knew our offense would wear them down.” Indeed, FBS rushing leader James led the Ducks to 24 consecutive points to close their first win at the Coliseum since 2000. USC quarterback Matt Barkley passed for 263 yards and Marc Tyler rushed for two scores for the Trojans (5-3, 2-3), who used trickery and big defensive plays to stay competitive until the third quarter. “We thought we had this game in the bag, but they played a hell of a game,” said USC defensive lineman Jurrell Casey, whose interception set up the Trojans’ first score in the third quarter. Also on Saturday:

No. 13 Stanford . . . . . . . . . . . . . .41 Washington . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .0 SEATTLE — Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck ran for a 51-yard touchdown the first time he carried the ball, directed Stanford to touchdowns on its first four possession, and the Cardinal routed Washington.

Rodgers has 4 TDs, as Oregon State tops Cal By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

CORVALLIS — On Oregon State’s first series Saturday, running back Jacquizz Rodgers threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Colby Prince out of the wildcat formation, and the Beavers went on to defeat California 35-7. Rodgers also ran for 119 yards and three touchdowns for the Beavers (4-3, 3-1 Pac-10), who led 280 at the half. California (4-4, 2-3) was stung in the first quarter when quarterback Kevin Riley injured his left knee and had to be helped off the field. The extent of his injury was not immediately released, but Cal coach Jeff Tedford said Riley, a senior from Portland, was expected to have an MRI perhaps as soon as today. “Right now it looks a little bit more serious than your everyday sprained knee,” Tedford said. Cal has lost six straight games on the road, a

streak dating back to last season. The Golden Bears have lost four straight to the Beavers. After his scoring strike, Rodgers had a pair of short scoring runs and quarterback Ryan Katz connected with Joel Halahuni on a 17-yard touchdown pass before the break. Rodgers added a 10yard touchdown run early in the second half. Rodgers also had three receptions for 11 yards, giving him 125 catches for his career — most ever by a Beaver running back. And he now has 3,433 yards rushing for his career — notable because it puts him 14th on the Pac-10’s all-time list ahead of O.J. Simpson. Katz completed 20 of 27 passes for 184 yards before Oregon State pulled most of its offensive starters in the fourth quarter. Brock Mansion replaced the injured Riley and completed 14 of 24 passes for 138 yards, including a 45-yard scoring pass to Anthony Miller with 20 seconds left in the game.

In an act of sportsmanship, though, Ashland’s seven runners voted among themselves to let Mountain View take its place at the state meet, feeling that the Cougars had beaten them fairly on the 5,000-meter course at Lithia Park. “I was speechless,” Stearns said about his reaction to the

A Magazine Highlighting The Variety Of Organizations That Connect Your Community.

Publishing Sunday, December 12, 2010 in The Bulletin Central Oregon communities continue to grow due to a nationally-recognized appreciation for the region’s quality of life. From providing the most basic needs of food, shelter and security, to creating and maintaining positive social, educational, recreational and professional environments, Central Oregon’s nonprofit community is a foundation for our area’s success and sustainability. Hundreds of organizations and thousands of volunteers make up this nonprofit network. Through the publication of Connections, The Bulletin will both define and profile the organizations that make up this network. Connections will provide readers with a thorough look at nonprofit organizations in Deschutes, Jefferson, and Crook Counties.

Advertising space reservation deadline is Wednesday, November 24, 2010 Grizzlies’ decision to defer their state berth to Mountain View. “I have not seen anything as classy or that better represents sportsmanship in all my (18) years of coaching. … It was an affirmation of what high school sports are all about.” The team vote was near unanimous, according to the Mail Tribune. “I feel like it’s the right decision,” Julian said. “If they made the other decision, they had the right to do that. But I felt like that was the sporting thing to do. That showed a lot of class by our kids. I think it’s unprecedented. I don’t think anything like that has ever happened before.” The move was especially touching to McBride, who after finishing the race thought he had cost his team a chance to run at state. “I’ll remember this for the rest of my life,” said McBride, who said he was in tears after the race. “It’s just unreal.” Efforts by The Bulletin to

reach the Oregon School Activities Association late Saturday to confirm the validity of Ashland High vacating its state berth were unsuccessful. The girls race was less dramatic, as Summit’s Megan Fristoe, the reigning 5A state champion, set a new course record with her winning time of 18 minutes, 43.12 seconds. Fristoe knocked off runner-up Jenna Mattox of Bend High (19:04.16) by 21 seconds and beat thirdplace finisher Ashley Maton of Summit (19:21.98) by more than 38 seconds. The Storm won the girls title with 27 points and were followed by Mountain View (49 points), Bend (72) and Ashland (84). Mikhaila Thornton paced the Cougars with a fourth-place finish. The Class 5A state championships are set for this Saturday in Eugene at Lane Community College. The girls 5A state race begins at 1:15 p.m., and the boys event is scheduled for 1:50 p.m.

Oregon Continued from D1 The No. 1 Ducks went to Memorial Coliseum and in front of 88,726 mostly cardinal-clad fans continued their perfect season and captivating run for the national championship with a 53-32 victory over USC, scoring the last 24 points of the game. After the victory, quarterback Darron Thomas and wide receiver Jeff Maehl found a small cluster of Duck fans in the stands near the west end zone. They commenced high-fives, jubilantly celebrating on the Trojans’ home turf. The Ducks had not been able to do that since 2000, when they last won at the Coliseum. For the past decade or so, USC was the team chasing national titles while dominating the Pac-10. Oregon spent the last two or three years quietly switching roles with the Trojans. The Ducks have now won eight of their last 13 games against USC and three of the last four — and are making a BCS title chase of their own. Oregon — which got 239 rushing yards Saturday night from Heisman Trophy candidate LaMichael James — has now changed the national perception of the Pac-10. “For our program, it’s a huge win and it’s big to turn around the tide,” said Maehl, who was unstoppable against the Trojans with eight catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns. “SC has been the big dog in the Pac-10 for the past decade. It feels good to finally come down here and get a win.” Deep in a Coliseum tunnel, Maehl was surrounded by media. Asked if he had been recruited by USC, Maehl, who grew up in Northern California, responded: “Not even a letter. Oregon was my only scholarship offer.” Last year, USC was still near the top of college football when it went to Eugene and suffered a 47-

Quizz Continued from D1 In all, Rodgers ran for 127 yards on 22 carries and three touchdowns in the Beavers’ 35-7 rout of Cal. And that anticipated showdown with Vereen never quite developed. No problem for Rodgers, who said after the game that he does not concern himself with such head-to-head comparisons. “I try to come out and do it for my team and run hard,” said the personable Rodgers, who walked into the postgame interview room in the Valley Center wearing a pink backpack. “I’m motived to win, that’s about it. I’m not motivated by no other back. “I’m just worried about getting W’s.” The Beavers ordered up a heavy dose of their best player early. Rodgers’ familiar No. 1 was called on six of Oregon State’s first eight plays, including four carries and a 10-yard catch on a swing pass. The highlight came out of the “wildcat” formation from the Cal 11-yard line. Rodgers caught the Bear defense flat-footed by passing, and his wobbly throw found wide-open tight end Colby Prince for the game’s first touchdown. The pass was not pretty, but it did the job: Quizz 7, Cal 0. “He says he’s good (passing) up to 40 (yards),” OSU coach Mike Riley quipped after the game. “It looked pretty good from where I was,” said Beaver split end Markus Wheaton. Of course, Wheaton, who rushed for 73 yards — mostly on fly sweeps — could not see the play from where he was standing, he said. But Quizz’s day was just beginning. Near the end of the first quarter, a break-your-ankles move followed by a jockstrap-on-the-field

20 massacre on Halloween night. A year later we saw more of the same, only this time it was on the Trojans’ home field. USC, a touchdown underdog, was trying to play the spoiler to Oregon’s national championship hopes, a complete role reversal from much of the last decade. “We definitely see that springboard in the program,” said UO linebacker Casey Matthews, who finished with 10 tackles. “But we’re the reigning Pac-10 champions, so we expect to win every game we go into.” James was dominant Saturday night from the first time he touched the ball, gaining 19 yards up the gut of the USC defense. The Trojan defenders often looked like they were stuck in quicksand. They simply were not ready for certain plays — especially James’ 42-yard touchdown burst in the second quarter. “We wanted to do some faster things, but we had to wait for the ref to spot the ball (after the play),” said Thomas, who threw four touchdown passes. But Oregon similarly struggled to slow USC. So the game unfolded as advertised — two offenses lighting up the scoreboard brighter than the modern skyscrapers of downtown L.A., which loomed in the distance. Could either team stop the other? Turns out, the Ducks COULD stop USC quarterback Matt Barkley and the Trojans’ potent passing attack. They held Barkley to 264 yards passing and made two interceptions. “Our team gets stronger as the second half goes along,” said Oregon head coach Chip Kelly. “Those (USC) receivers are as good as we have seen. And Barkley threw some throws, where I caught myself going, ‘Wow.’ But there’s a confidence in our team. Our guys are playing hard.” In the second quarter, Maehl resembled a kid on a playground, seemingly tipping a pass to himself to make a remarkable div-

ing 45-yard touchdown catch that gave Oregon a 22-17 lead. Maehl came through yet again in the third quarter with a 30yard touchdown reception that silenced the boisterous Coliseum crowd and gave Oregon a 36-32 lead. After that, the Ducks never trailed — and now they may not trail USC for a long time to come in the Pac-10. But if Kelly thought this win solidified the Ducks as THE Pac-10 powerhouse, he was not saying so. “It’s another win,” Kelly said. “Our guys don’t get caught up. We talk about playing faceless opponents.” Oregon should remain No. 2 this week in the BCS rankings and at the top of the human polls. Four more wins, and is seems certain that the Ducks will play for the national championship. But even if the Ducks suffer a loss along the way, they will still be recognized as the flagship program of the Pac-10, a title they finally whisked completely away from USC on Saturday night. Combine Oregon’s victories over USC the last two years, the weight of the NCAA sanctions on the Trojans, and the Ducks current run at a national title — and Oregon could rule the Pac-10 not just this year, but for years to come. In the recruiting hotbed of Los Angeles, the Ducks made a big statement to talented high school football players who were watching. Time was, the face of the Pac10 was a Trojan on a horse. Now, it’s a Duck that relishes the attention on ESPN because the Oregon team has earned it on the field. As Thomas and Maehl celebrated with the Duck fans, the Trojan was nowhere to be found. The Duck finally knocked him completely off his horse — and the nation took notice.

cut by Rodgers turned what was looking like a short loss into a 32yard gain that ended inside Cal’s 10. That set up his first scoring run. And he punched in another touchdown with 10:42 to go before halftime. Quizz 21, Cal 0. Rodgers ran for 89 yards on 12 carries, including two touchdowns — not to mention throwing the second TD pass of his career — all before halftime. It was just the kind of start Oregon State wanted. “Our main focus this week was to establish the run, and we did that,” said OSU quarterback Ryan Katz, who was impressive himself, completing 20 of 27 passes for 184 yards. “Quizz had a lot of big runs and a lot of big holes to run through. So we definitely accomplished that.” Meanwhile, Vereen never really got going — not that it was all his fault. Oregon State keyed on Vereen early and he lost yardage on his first two carries. And after Cal starting quarterback Kevin Riley was knocked out of the game on the Golden Bears’ second drive of the game, Vereen had no chance. Cal’s offense turned into a penalty-marred mess that was quickly forced to rely on backup quarterback Brock Mansion’s arm to try to cut into the Beavers’ substantial lead. Vereen did have his moments. He saw the beautiful green of the open field for the first time on a 16-yard carry midway through the second quarter. He also made a slippery 10-yard run during an ill-fated drive near the end of the first half. But that was pretty much it. For the game, Vereen would gain just 53 yards on 12 carries. In all, the Beavers combined to run for 197 yards. Cal? A net total of just 23.

“We thought that running the ball was going to be a major factor in this game for both teams,” Riley said. “You just look at those stats. That was a major difference in the game.” Oregon State utilized its other weapons after running out to that 21-0 lead. Rodgers set up his third rushing score — and went over 100 yards for the game, his fifth 100yard game this season — after carrying a handful of Cal defenders for 10 yards on OSU’s first drive of the second half. Of course, Rodgers has had plenty of practice carrying things on his back. He has been called on to do it for the Beavers so often in his three seasons in Corvallis. He did it again Saturday, even if Oregon State’s lockdown of Vereen and Cal’s inept offense made it largely unnecessary. Rodgers, always humble, was quick to point out that he had plenty of help. “The (offensive) line did a great job,” he said. “What we do on offense is all up to them.” It was a good time for the running game to come together. The win over Cal was more important than it might look at first glance. Without it — as with wins over Washington State and UCLA in the next two weeks, for that matter — the Beavers would have to pick off either USC, Stanford or Oregon during a seasonending gauntlet just to get bowl eligible. Not to mention the more obvious: that a Beaver loss all but kills OSU’s chances for a conference championship. The first part of that mission was accomplished Saturday. Quizz, as he has done so many times before, helped make sure of that.

TOP 25 ROUNDUP

No. 14 Nebraska hands No. 7 Missouri its first loss The Associated Press LINCOLN, Neb. — Roy Helu Jr. rushed for a school-record 307 yards, and No. 14 Nebraska knocked No. 7 Missouri from the ranks of the unbeatens with a 3117 victory Saturday. The Cornhuskers (7-1, 3-1 Big 12) held off Missouri after building a 24-0 lead and moved into a firstplace tie with the Tigers in the Big 12 North. Nebraska, which ended a 13-game losing streak against Top 10 teams, earned the inside track to the division title by winning the head-to-head meeting. Missouri (7-1, 3-1) was off to its best start since 1960. The Tigers have lost 17 straight road games against Top 25 opponents since 1997. Helu ran for touchdowns of 66, 73 and 53 yards. The Cornhuskers played without quarterback Taylor Martinez in the second half after he came up hobbling following a hit from Kenji Jackson on a run late in the second quarter. Zac Lee took over to start the third quarter. Coach Bo Pelini said Martinez had a bruised right leg and should be able to play next week at Iowa State. Helu was sensational carrying the offensive load whether Martinez was in or out of the game. He totaled 228 yards after his first 10 carries on his way to breaking the Nebraska record of 294 yards set by Calvin Jones against Kansas in 1991. Also on Saturday: No. 3 Auburn. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 51 Mississippi . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 31 OXFORD, Miss. — Cam Newton caught a touchdown pass, to go along with the two TD passes he threw, and Mike Dyer ran for 180 yards for Auburn. The Tigers (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference), ranked atop the BCS standings for the first time, easily sidestepped the string of upsets that had struck No. 1 teams in each of the past three weeks. No. 4 TCU . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 48 UNLV . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6 LAS VEGAS — Andy Dalton threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns and No. 4 TCU dominated defensively again to stay undefeated with a 48-6 victory against UNLV on Saturday night. No. 18 Iowa . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 37 No. 5 Michigan State . . . . . . . . . . . 6 IOWA CITY, Iowa — Ricky Stanzi threw three touchdown passes and Iowa handed Michigan State its first loss decisively. Adam Robinson added a pair of touchdowns for the charged-up Hawkeyes (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten), who rolled out to a 30-0 halftime lead and dealt a crushing blow to the Spartans’ national title hopes. No. 8 Utah . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 28 Air Force . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 23 AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Utah’s defense forced five turnovers and stopped the Falcons twice on downs in the final quarter to win heading into its big game with TCU next weekend. Utah (50 Mountain West) will face its biggest challenge so far this season when it hosts TCU next Saturday, a marquee matchup between two hopeful BCS busters. No. 10 Ohio State . . . . . . . . . . . . . 52 Minnesota . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 MINNEAPOLIS — Terrelle Pryor threw for 222 yards and two touchdowns and Dan Herron

rushed for 114 yards and another score in the first half to lead Ohio State.(8-1, 4-1 Big Ten). No. 11 Oklahoma. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .43 Colorado . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .10 NORMAN, Okla. — Ryan Broyles broke the school record with 208 yards receiving as part of the biggest passing day in Oklahoma history. Landry Jones threw for a career-high 453 yards and four touchdowns, including three to Broyles. No. 17 South Carolina . . . . . . . . . 38 Tennessee . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 COLUMBIA, S.C. — Alshon Jeffery’s 70-yard touchdown catch broke a fourth-quarter tie and kept South Carolina (6-2, 4-2) in control of the SEC East. The Vols had rallied back from a 14-point deficit on a pair of touchdown passes from backup quarterback Tyler Bray to tie the game at 24. No. 19 Arkansas . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 49 Vanderbilt . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Ryan Mallett threw for a school-record 409 yards and Arkansas beat Vanderbilt. Mallett topped his own record of 408 yards, set last year against Georgia, and finished 27 of 44 as the Razorbacks (6-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) won their second straight game. No. 20 Oklahoma State. . . . . . . . 24 Kansas State. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 MANHATTAN, Kan., — Brandon Weeden threw two touchdown passes and Oklahoma State’s high-powered offense overcame the absence of star wide receiver Justin Blackmon. Tthe at-

tack that came into the game No. 3 nationally in total offense and No. 2 in scoring sputtered much of the day, particularly in a 7-7 first half, but the Cowboys (7-1 overall, 3-1 Big 12) scored 17 straight points in the second half. Virginia . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 24 No. 22 Miami . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 19 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Virginia intercepted Miami’s backup quarterbacks four times after Jacory Harris was hurt and pulled off the upset. Virginia (4-4, 1-3 ACC), which had lost nine straight conference games, knocked Harris from the game on a huge hit by John-Kevin Dolce in the second quarter with the score still 0-0. No. 23 Mississippi State. . . . . . . 24 Kentucky . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 STARKVILLE, Miss. — Vick Ballard rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown, and Mississippi State relied on its running game and defense. The Wildcats threatened to tie the game in the final minute, but Mike Hartline’s pass was intercepted by Johnthan Banks at the goal line to seal a sixth straight victory for Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference). No. 25 Baylor. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 Texas. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 22 AUSTIN, Texas — Robert Griffin III passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and Baylor beat Texas for the first time since 1997. Baylor (7-2, 4-1) got its first win in Austin since 1991 and stays in first place in the Big 12 South.

What’s fair in election coverage W

ith just two days to go, Election 2010 is all but over. But there is still time to vote. If you haven’t already, please cast your ballots. Whether you agree with them or not, the candidates deserve an answer. Whether they win or not, running for office is very hard for anyone to do. No matter their views, you have to admire their willingness to do all that it takes to step forward in such a manner. Casting a ballot is pretty easy by comparison. So do it. And remember, you now have to drop it off in person, not mail it in. That said, a few words about The Bulletin’s coverage in the election, and the few critics that coverage generated. Last Sunday and Tuesday, The Bulletin had political advertisements partially covering Page A1 and wrapped around the back of the section. One ad was from a Realtors group and the other was from Jason Conger, who is challenging Rep. Judy Stiegler and Mike Kozak for the District 54 state House seat. That Conger and the Realtors have a fair amount in common philosophically is, to a few folks, evidence that The Bulletin is skewing its advertising to boost its editorial views. One caller even said The Bulletin does not give equal space to the candidates its editorial board opposes. From the beginning, we have tried to be scrupulously fair. At the start of the campaign season of each major election, such as this one, we invite all candidates and representatives of measures on the ballot to a forum at The Bulletin. There, we explain our coverage plans, how the editorial board’s endorsement process works and, finally, the ins and outs of political advertising. Of the approximately 90 candidates on the current ballot, about 35 came to the forum or sent a representative. So all the candidates had an opportunity to get the information directly. Some took advantage of it; some didn’t. To be fair, when Conger bought the A1 ad, we messaged both Stiegler and Kozak about that option. They both had the same opportunity but didn’t take it. That’s their choice, and we respect it. Some readers simply didn’t like the ad, regardless of what it was about, arguing that this is a departure from the traditional practices of The Bulletin and other newspapers. Granted, it is a departure, but it is one that is becoming more prevalent in the newspaper business. Last Sunday, The Oregonian had a similar advertisement on its front page. These ads, like any other, are ways that newspapers have chosen to raise revenue and protect the staff and the daily product as much as possible in these terrible economic times. Other than their nontraditional page position, they are like all the other political advertising that has appeared in American newspapers for a very long time. And at least in The Bulletin, we spend a lot of time and energy fact-checking the ads, including the ones that appear in our newspaper. Not many other media in Central Oregon are willing to invest in that depth of reporting. In news coverage, the reporting and editing staffs have done all that is humanly possible to make sure voters know who the candidates are and what they stand for. On the news pages, we have approached each candidate and issue with as much balance as we can, including number, length and play of stories. Of course, we write editorials and offer endorsements, which is traditional in most newspapers. We cover and write about the issues regularly. We also invited any candidate in a contested race in for an interview with the editorial board. Given that, we think we should tell you what we think. You are, of course, free to reject it. Many people do, including the candidates we don’t endorse. To make sure that those who disagree get a say in The Bulletin, we have opened up pages to letters, as well as the responses of those we haven’t endorsed. That is very expensive, but it is our obligation. We take it seriously. And, please vote. John Costa is editor in chief of The Bulletin.

Willarene Fisher was fired from her job at Dura Automotive Systems in Lawrenceburg, Tenn. Due to a change in drug-testing policy, the company now tests for certain prescription drugs as well as illicit ones. Fisher is suing the company.

Invasion of privacy or a need for safety? Testing for prescription drugs poses quandary for employers By Katie Zezima and Abby Goodnough New York Times News Service LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn. — The news, delivered in a phone call, left Sue Bates aghast: She was losing her job of 22 years after testing positive for a legally prescribed drug. Her employer, Dura Automotive Systems, had changed the policy at its sprawling plant here to test for certain prescription drugs as well as illicit ones. The medication that Bates was taking for back pain — hydrocodone, a narcotic prescribed by her doctor — was among many that the company, which makes car parts, had suddenly deemed unsafe. “I don’t think it should end the way it did,” said Bates, an assembly line worker who has sued Dura for discrimination and invasion of privacy. “You tell somebody you lost your job because you’re on prescription medication and they’re like, ‘Yeah, right.’ ” Two decades after the Supreme Court first upheld the right to test for drugs in the workplace, Dura’s concern — that employees on certain medications posed a safety hazard — is echoing across the country. The growing reliance of Americans on powerful prescription drugs for pain, anxiety and other maladies sug-

Inside • A look at the rise in use of prescription painkillers at work, Page F6 gests that many are reporting to work with potent drugs in their systems, and employers are grappling for ways to address that. What companies consider an effort to maintain a safe work environment is drawing complaints from employees who cite privacy concerns and contend that they should not be fired for taking legal medications, sometimes for injuries sustained on the job. “This may be the point guard for an important societal issue,” Dr. Robert Cochran Jr., a Nashville pain specialist who treats three of the Dura plaintiffs, said of the lawsuit against Dura. “How do we address these drugs as a society?” See Workplace / F6

Mark Long repairs a boat engine at D&D Marine in Athens, Ala. “The reason I was taking the medication was a work-related injury,” said Long, 38, who worked at Dura and was fired for taking hydrocodone. “I really didn’t expect for my job to end.”

AN INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER

Chairwoman Publisher Editor-in-chief Editor of Editorials

District should put off request

D

espite a bad economy and high unemployment in the area, Bend-La Pine schools grew by some 300 students this year. If the trend continues, the district will need to

ask voters to finance a new school in the not-too-distant future. It’s the timing of that request that should turn school board members’ hair gray. School officials know that building, remodeling and renovations financed by a bond measure approved in 2006 will be wrapped up by next year. Already in place are three new elementary schools, and work is nearly completed on other projects the $119 million measure paid for. They know, too, that if growth continues as it is expected to, the district is likely to need at least one and perhaps two new schools in the next few years. It had tentatively planned to ask district voters for a $79 million bond measure next year, a move it has wisely reconsidered. Yet waiting only one year might not be enough. Bend has had an inordinately tough time dragging itself out of the current recession, and unemployment currently stands at 15.5 percent. The return to prosperity is likely to be slow. That means, of course, that taxpayers are unlikely to be in a spending mood come 2012, the earliest district officials now say they’re likely to ask voters to approve a bond. The district should do what it can

to put off a new bond request until at least 2014, if possible. The region’s economy is certain to be stronger then, and unemployment down. When people have jobs, they’re far more likely to tax themselves. No matter how badly a new school is needed before then, asking voters to pay for one is likely to be an exercise in futility. Too, the district’s oldest building bond, approved in 1993, will be retired in 2014. It costs taxpayers a relatively small 10.68 cents per $1,000 of taxable property value, but waiting until it is retired will reduce the amount by which district residents see their property tax bills rise. It may be that the region’s recovery will be quicker than expected or that the district will grow more rapidly than current predictions suggest. Those things could change the district’s need for new buildings, of course. But if things continue to move along as they’re doing today, the longer Bend-La Pine schools can put off asking voters for more money, the more likely they’ll be to get what they need.

My Nickel’s Worth Yes on 76 When I think back to my childhood education, what I remember most are the days I spent tromping through lodgepole forests following hidden trails that only mule deer and secondgraders could see. When I grew thirsty, I drank from a small stream. When I heard the call of a hawk, I sat and listened. When I returned home in the evening I brought with me a wealth of observations that I still carry with me. I was lucky to grow up in a small Colorado mountain town surrounded by national forest. Some kids aren’t so lucky. When I moved to Oregon a number of years ago, what impressed me the most was the interest that the state had in not only protecting those environmental gems that restore our youth, but also its willingness to invest in the wild playgrounds of our future. I can’t imagine any better long-term investment than using less than 1.5 percent of Oregon’s budget to ensure that our children’s children have healthy forests to hunt, clear streams to fish, and quiet places to learn what it is to be human. I’m voting “yes” for Measure 76. Aaron Maxwell Bend

Ads are right During this campaign season, The Bulletin has been running a feature that looks at the truthfulness and accuracy of statements made by the candidates in their radio and TV ads. In this feature there have been equal instances revealed of both candidates for the state House “stretching the truth.” Suddenly, this “truth stretching” by Judy Stiegler shows

up in a bold-type editorial as “desperate tactics.” I guess when Jason Conger was “truth stretching” in his ads he wasn’t also employing “desperate tactics.” In the same editorial, The Bulletin quoted Conger as saying he’d “like intelligent design to be taught along with evolution in schools.” I don’t know of anyone who would accuse me of “lying” if I were to correctly interpret this statement as meaning that he would like to see creationism taught in our schools. Just because he won’t be on the state Board of Education doesn’t change this fact. Jason Conger would like to see intelligent design taught in our schools. Also, while I certainly don’t know if a voucher system would or would not impact Oregon public schools financially, I do know that voucher systems espoused by conservative candidates almost always mean public funds being used so that families can send their children to private schools (often religious). If your readers want to see some examples of “desperate tactics,” they only need to read The Bulletin’s recent comments in editorials in support of Dudley and Huffman! John Proud Bend

It’s all income It’s called the “income tax.” And we go to great lengths to figure out cute ways to avoid paying it. Further, it has spawned a vast industry in tax preparers whom we hire to help us avoid, in so far as possible, paying the tax. We all want someone else to “pick up the tab,” so to speak. In reference to the Sept. 15 guest column by Jesse Wickham, whatever compensation one receives from one’s em-

ployer for work performed, is that not “income”? Is the 6 percent PERS pickup, which most public employees enjoy, or health care insurance premiums or any other benefits paid for by an employer in lieu of wages or salary indeed, in truth and in fact not “income”? Wilburn Dodge Crooked River Ranch

Steer clear As a lifelong Bendgonian and hunter, I would like to address a canker sore that I’ve noticed over the last few years has festered and festered. (I’m not blaming anyone.) Don McAfee was our health class teacher and gave us junior high kids the first Oregon hunter safety class in Bend, which I’m proud to say I was fortunate to be a part of. Not all who hunt were this fortunate. I myself have seen a lot of hunters who shouldn’t be anywhere near the woods. Over the years there has been a vast influx of bicyclers and ATVers. For general deer season (rifle) we have 12 days. Cascade bull hunters have seven days. You ATVers and bicycle guys and gals have all year. Have a clue — two out of three groups (hunters, ATVers, bikers) should not be in the woods at that time, and it isn’t the hunters. I wouldn’t want to be unable to hear a gunshot in the woods because of an iPod or a screaming 500cc motor — or, maybe, unknowingly come between a big game animal and hunter. If we don’t know each other’s presence, tragedy could accidentally happen. Please stay clear of hunting areas during the two seasons, deer and elk. Gary Johnson Bend

Management needed to reduce fire risk in federal forests By Chris Johnson Bulletin guest columnist

I

read, first with interest, then amusement and finally bewilderment, the Sept. 25 Bulletin article “Trees killed by beetles a greater fire risk? Or is it less clear-cut?” I was interested since I N M Y I’ve been an east-side professional forester for nearly 20 years, and insects are an important factor in forest management. I was amused to read the riveting revelation that a tree full of dead needles would burn hotter and more quickly than one without needles. Hmm. Those of us who work in forests already knew this. Why didn’t the scientist ask us first? I was bewildered because the article implied that the only reason one would consider salvaging the dead trees was to reduce fire risk, while ignoring the benefits salvage of dead material could have. This “research” narrowly focuses on one attribute of dead trees — fire risk. Now the argument can be made: Since

the trees will eventually lose their needles, there is essentially no fire risk and, therefore, no need to take action. Nonmanagement of our public lands now has even more “science” to support it. But this period of “no risk” is relatively short (more on this later). V I E W Surprise, surprise, four days later the headline appears “Study: Bark beetles reduce wildfire risk” by Bettina Boxall of the Los Angeles Times. According to this article, an ecology professor would have us believe the beetles are good foresters. Evidently, we should thank the beetles for all the good, free work they have done for us by “thinning” millions of acres across the western United States and Canada. Another study in the Yellowstone region concludes that rather than increasing wildfire risk, beetles actually reduce it by thinning tree crowns. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that a dead forest is no longer a fire risk. I wonder if the residents of the almost 200 destroyed homes near Boulder,

Colo., share the same sense of relief. The fact is that bark beetles attack and kill trees that are under stress, stress that is often a combination of old age and very dense stand conditions, particularly in lodgepole pine forests. The beetles just don’t kill (oops, “thin”) a tree here or there. When they build up into an outbreak mode, they kill 50 to 70 percent of the trees. What these studies fail to address is the elevated risk five to 20 years later when dead trees begin to fall on the forest floor and simultaneously, grass, shrubs and younger trees develop in the understory, providing additional fuel to carry a fire through the now-jackstrawed trees. Once this fuel is ignited by the inevitable lightning strike, the resulting fire can damage soils and watersheds and destroy homes. In the last decade or so, management of our national forests has been hijacked by a few groups that believe in a “handsoff” approach. This passive management of our federal lands has contributed to overstocked conditions and a high risk of

drought, disease or insect-induced mortality and uncharacteristically intense wildfire. The spotted owl is not recovering. It’s declining even though federal timber harvest levels have decreased to a trickle, suggesting there are other factors that threaten the owl’s long-term survival. Many smaller timber-dependent communities are suffering extreme social and economic hardships. Most environmental organizations would have the public believe that our federal forests are being decimated by greedy timber corporations. I would like to offer some evidence to the contrary. Sixty percent of Oregon’s forestland, an area nearly the size of South Carolina, is federally owned. Oregon’s federal forestland (2007 figures) gross annual growth is estimated at 3.96 billion board feet. Of that 3.96 billion board feet growing over a year’s time, only 7.5 percent is harvested, 20 percent is lost to mortality and the remaining 72.5 percent continues to grow, perpetuating overstocked conditions. In contrast, Oregon’s private forest-

land (2007 figures) gross annual growth is estimated at 4.42 billion board feet. Of that 4.42 billion board feet, 74 percent is harvested, 4 percent is lost to mortality and 21 percent continues to grow. Harvested areas are replanted (it’s the law in Oregon). I’m not advocating that public land be managed identical to private forestland. But what I am advocating is that public lands are not over-harvested, they are severely under-harvested. Increased harvest levels will alleviate overstocked conditions. Increased harvest levels will generate jobs and maintain and enhance logging and mill infrastructure. Narrowly focused, short-term studies — such as these concerning mountain pine beetles reducing fire hazard — will inevitably be used by some environmental organizations as they litigate the Forest Service. It’s then up to the judiciary to decide. Meanwhile, forests continue to grow, die and burn. Chris Johnson lives in Bend.

O Why we’re afraid to speak openly J

uan Williams was just fired from NPR. His sin? He confessed to occasional anxiety when Muslims board airplanes, and then went on to explain why stereotyping is wrong. The fate of Williams reminds us that Americans have developed two personas — one public and politically correct, the other private. Mix the two and big trouble ensues. Here are some reminders about what to shut up about. Don’t discuss the deficit. Instead, call borrowing “stimulus.” Trillions are not much different from billions. Debt can be paid back with more borrowing and someone else’s higher taxes. Ignore the lessons of Greece and California. To appear noble, call for more unemployment benefits, free medical care and more entitlements. To sound cruel, talk about borrowing to pay for them. Keep silent about Social Security and Medicare. If the system is insolvent, it cannot be because we are living longer, retiring earlier, often taking out more than we paid into the pot, abusing disability provisions, or facing an aging and soon-to-be-shrinking population. Instead, rail at fat cats who need to pay more payroll taxes, and at wasteful programs like defense that can be cut to ensure more for the elderly and needy. The checks will always come in time, and “they” will always pay for them.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON Most Americans choose to be called “cowards” by Attorney General Eric Holder rather than accept his invitation to talk about race on his terms. The NAACP has accused the tea party of racist views. The anger over high taxes, debt and big government warrants more concern among the Beltway’s black leadership than exploring the causes of inordinately high incidence of crime, incarceration, one-parent homes and low high school graduation rates. Whatever one’s private views, groupspeak requires that answers are found outside, not inside, the black community — and demand more programs and more federal money. Closing the border is a taboo subject. Also taboo is the phrase “illegal alien.” Speak instead about the need for social justice, not the enforcement of mere laws. Illegal aliens broke no real law when enticed northward by greedy employers. That is why the secretary of labor released a video calling for workers to report employer abuses — whether

the workers are “documented or not.” Passing laws to subvert federal immigration laws, such as “sanctuary city” legislation, is commendable. Passing laws to enforce federal immigration statutes earns a lawsuit, and condemnation by the president of Mexico from the White House lawn. Ask Arizona. Don’t get caught up in discussing global warming. If you must go there, employ the term “climate change” so that anything from a tornado to a blizzard can be blamed on man-caused carbon emissions. Instead of citing recent doctored research or the inconsistencies in Al Gore’s advocacy, just mention that Sarah Palin denies climate change. Do not, under any circumstances, associate global terrorism with Islam — despite the countless terrorist operations that have been carried out worldwide by Muslims since Sept. 11, 2001. If Muslims must be mentioned, it should only be in the context that a tiny number, without support and often due to past oppression, commit such terrorism — earning the furor of the Muslim community at large. Do not end up like Juan Williams of NPR, who was fired for his candid remarks. For insurance, talk ad nauseam about Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing as proof that white male Christians blow things up just as frequently. Do not weigh in on gay marriage. Mil-

lions of Neanderthals voted to oppose it; a few sophisticated judges ruled to overturn bans on it. If you talk positively about traditional marriage and the special and historical relationship between a man and a woman, that is code for homophobia. Lay off the university. It hikes tuition costs higher than the rate of inflation. It exploits part-time teachers while clinging to archaic notions like tenure. It cannot guarantee that its graduates are competent in either basic reading or math — or that they will even find a job these days. And it shuns true diversity of thought. Yet question its budgets, hiring practices, political tolerance or affirmative action, and one is dubbed anti-intellectual, racist, against the student loan industry, and cold-heartedly against letting someone be all that he can be. We do not quite know how Americans will vote Tuesday, in part because citizens fear to talk openly about their concerns and instead employ groupspeak. We suspect that in the privacy of the voting booth, they may prove angrier and more frustrated than we think. But why not, when they know that candor and honesty can earn a presidential lecture, a job firing or a lawsuit?

tional amount every month to upgrade their water system and ensure their long-term access to clean water. If public officials would provide honest leadership on this and other infrastructure issues, making a sound case for the investments that are needed and the benefits that would accrue from rebuilding America’s infrastructure, the public would be likely to sign on. We can start getting our act together now, or we can pay dearly later. The Obama administration has provided federal support for some water and other infrastructure improvements but nothing close to the kind of effort needed to bring America’s infrastructure into even reasonable shape. The horror stories abound: the drowning of New Orleans when the levees failed in 2005, the 2007 explosion of an ancient steam pipe in Manhattan that killed one person and injured more than 30, the gas pipeline explosion and fire last month in San Bruno, Calif., that killed seven and injured more than 50. There are endless other examples, tragic, costly and unnecessary. The sorry state of America’s infrastructure is a hard-core reflection of what is really going on in this increasingly hapless society, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not.

BROOKS sophisticated than those hordes of middle Americans who say silly things like, “Get government off my Medicare.” On the other hand, Democrats have paid little attention to the crucial group in this election — the independent moderates who supported Obama and now support the GOP. Losing friends makes you sad. It’s better to not think about why these things happen. Lesson two. Always remember, many great geniuses were unappreciated in their lifetimes. Democrats are lagging because the country appears incapable of appreciating the grandeur of their accomplishments. That’s because, as several commentators have argued over the past few weeks, many Americans are nearsighted and ill-informed. Or, as Obama himself noted last week, they get scared, and when Americans get scared they stop listening to facts and reason. They get all these crazy ideas in their heads. The Democrats’ problem, as some senior officials have mentioned, is that they are so darn captivated by substance, it never occurs to them to look out for their own political self-interest. By the way, here’s a fun party game: Get a bottle of vodka and read Peter Baker’s article “The Education of President Obama” from The New York Times Magazine a few weeks ago. Take a shot every time a White House official is quoted blaming

Republicans for the Democrats’ political plight. You’ll be unconscious by Page 3. Lesson three. Always remember: You are the hero of your own children’s adventure story. Some low-minded people could look at events this year and tell a dull, prosaic story. They would say that parties that promote unpopular policies tend to get punished at election time. These grubby-minded people would point out that Democratic House members who voted against health care are doing well in their re-election bids, while those who voted for it are getting clobbered. But many Democrats have a loftier sensibility. They see this campaign as a poetic confrontation between good (themselves) and pure evil (Karl Rove and his group, American Crossroads). As Nancy Pelosi put it at a $50,000-acouple fundraiser, “Everything was going great and all of a sudden secret mon-

ey from God knows where — because they won’t disclose it — is pouring in.” Even allowing the menace of secret money, embracing this Paradise Lost epic means obscuring a few inconvenient facts: that Democrats were happy to benefit from millions of anonymous dollars in 2006, 2008 and today; that the spending by Rove’s group amounts to less than 1 percent of the total money spent on campaigns this year; that Democrats retain an overall spending advantage. In short, it’s hard not to be impressed by the spirit of self-approval that Democrats have managed to maintain this election. I say that knowing it may end as soon as next Wednesday, when, as is their wont, Democrats will flip from complete self-worship to complete selflaceration in the blink of an eye.

America’s infrastructure really is in a sorry state

I

f you had a leak in your roof or in the kitchen or basement, you’d probably think it a good idea to have it taken care of before matters got worse, and more expensive. If only we had the same attitude when it comes to the vast and intricately linked water systems in the United States. Most of us take clean and readily available water for granted. But the truth is that the nation’s water systems are in sorry shape — deteriorating even as the population grows and demand increases. Aging and corroded pipes are bursting somewhere every couple of minutes. Dilapidated sewer systems are contaminating waterways and drinking water. Many local systems are so old and inadequate — in some cases, so utterly rotten — that they are overwhelmed by heavy rain. As Charles Duhigg reported in The Times last March: “For decades, these systems — some built around the time of the Civil War — have been ignored by politicians and residents accustomed to paying almost nothing for water delivery and sewage removal. And so each year, hundreds of thousands of ruptures damage streets and homes and cause dangerous pollutants to seep into drinking water supplies.” There is, of course, no reason for this to be the case. If this were a first-class society, we would rebuild our water systems to the point where they would be

BOB HERBERT the envy of the world, and that would bolster the economy in the bargain. But that would take maturity and vision and effort and sacrifice, all of which are in dismayingly short supply right now. We can’t even build a railroad tunnel beneath the Hudson River from New Jersey to New York. Improving water systems — and infrastructure generally, if properly done — would go a long way toward improving the nation’s dismal economic outlook. According to the U.S. Conference of Mayors, every dollar invested in water and sewer improvements has the potential to increase the long-term gross domestic product by more than six dollars. Hundreds of thousands of jobs would be created if the nation were serious about repairing and upgrading water mains, crumbling pipes, water treatment plants, dams, levees and so on. Millions of jobs would be created if we could bring ourselves to stop fighting mindless wars and use some of those squandered billions to bring the nation’s

infrastructure in the broadest sense up to 21st-century standards. The need is tremendous. The nation’s network of water systems was right at the bottom of the latest infrastructure grades handed out by the American Society of Civil Engineers, receiving a Dminus. Jeffrey Griffiths, a member of the federal government’s National Drinking Water Advisory Council, told The Times: “We’re relying on water systems built by our great-grandparents, and no one wants to pay for the decades we’ve spent ignoring them. There’s a lot of evidence that people are getting sick. But because everything is out of sight, no one really understands how bad things have become.” What has always struck me about this issue is that there is a desperate need to improve the nation’s infrastructure and a desperate need for the jobs and enhanced economic activity that would come from sustained, long-term infrastructure investment. But somehow the leadership and the will to move forward on the scale that is needed are missing. A survey to be released this week by the ITT Corp., which makes and sells water infrastructure equipment, shows that nearly 70 percent of respondents agreed with the statement “I generally take my access to clean water for granted.” But a similar percentage said they would be willing to pay a modest addi-

War worse for Afghan women than Taliban KABUL, Afghanistan — or those of us who favor a sharp reduction in American troops in Afghanistan and a peace deal with the Taliban, the most vexing question is: What about Afghan women? Time magazine framed the issue in a wrenching way with a cover this summer of Aisha, an 18-year-old woman who ran away from an abusive husband. The article said that last year the Taliban had punished Aisha by having her nose and ears hacked off — a traditional punishment for women considered disobedient or promiscuous. Her husband did the cutting. Time quoted Aisha as saying of the Taliban, as she was touching her disfigured face: “How can we reconcile with them?” It’s a fair question, as is: Are those of us who favor a military pullback in Afghanistan sentencing more women to be brutalized? Those are questions that I came to Afghanistan to wrestle with. Women are fearful, no question. Here in Kabul, far fewer women wear the burqa today than on my previous visits. But several women told me that they were keeping burqas at home — just in case. The gnawing fear is that even if the Taliban do not regain control in Kabul, fundamentalist values and laws will gain ground. Still, it seems to me a historic mistake to justify our huge military presence in Afghanistan as a bulwark to protect the women. In fact, most women I interviewed favored making a deal with the Taliban — simply because it would bring peace. For them, the Taliban regime was awful, but a perpetual war may be worse. Take Pari Gol, a woman from Helmand province whom I met here in Kabul. She despises the Taliban and told me on this trip that back in 2001, “I prayed that the Taliban would be defeated, and God listened to my prayers.” Yet in the fighting since then, she said, her home was destroyed and her husband and daughter were both killed by American airstrikes. She is now living in a mud hut here — fuming at the Taliban, the Americans and the Afghan government. “I hate all of them,” she told me. Remember also that while women in Kabul benefit from new freedoms, that is not true of an Afghan woman in a village in the South. For such women there, life before 2001 was oppressive — and so is life today. One man from Helmand province, Wali Khan, told me that there would be no difference for women in his village, whether the Taliban rule or not, because in either case women would be locked up in the home. He approvingly cited an expression in Pashto that translates to: “A wife should be in the home — or in the grave.” In other words, oppression is rooted not only in the Taliban but also in the culture. The severing of a woman’s nose and ears occurs not only in Taliban areas but also in secure parts of Pakistan. Indeed, I’ve come across such disfigurement more in Punjab, the most powerful and populous province of Pakistan, than in Afghanistan — yet I haven’t heard anybody say we should occupy Pakistan to transform it. The best way to end oppression isn’t firepower but rather education and economic empowerment, for men and women alike, in ways that don’t create a backlash. As I wrote in my last column, schooling is possible even in Taliban-controlled areas, as long as implementation is undertaken in close consultation with elders and doesn’t involve Westerners on the ground. One impressive force for change is BPeace, which encourages female entrepreneurs in Afghanistan. Soora Stoda, one of the entrepreneurs I met, is building a potato chip factory. Another, Shahla Akbari, makes shoes. Her mother, Fatima Akbari, has 3,000 (mostly female) employees around Afghanistan. Fatima Akbari is now expanding her women’s businesses and literacy classes in Taliban-controlled areas, always working closely with mullahs and elders to gain their support and protection. “When you go and win their hearts, you can do anything,” she said. So let’s not fool ourselves by thinking that we’re doing favors for Afghan women by investing American blood and treasure in an unsustainable war here. The road to emancipate Afghan women will be arduous, but it runs through schools and economic development — and, yes, a peace deal with the Taliban, if that’s possible.

How Democrats are maintaining self-esteem W DAVID hen times get tough, it’s really important to believe in yourself. This is something the Democrats have done splendidly this year. The polls have been terrible, and the party may be heading for a historic defeat, but Democrats have done a magnificent job of maintaining their own self-esteem. This is vital, because even if the public doesn’t approve of you, it is important to approve of yourself. In fact, I would go so far as to say that Democrats have become role models. They have offered us lessons on how we, too, may continue to love ourselves, even in trying circumstances. Lesson one. Think happy thoughts. Never allow yourself to dwell on downer, depressing ones. Over the past year, many Democrats have resolutely paid attention to those things that make them feel good, and they have carefully filtered out those negative things that make them feel sad. For example, Democrats and their media enablers have paid lavish attention to Christine O’Donnell and Carl Paladino, even though these two Republican candidates have almost no chance of winning. That’s because it feels so delicious to feel superior to opponents you consider to be feebleminded wackos. On the other hand, Democrats and their enablers have paid no attention to Republicans like Rob Portman, Dan Coats, John Boozman and Roy Blunt, who are likely to actually get elected. It doesn’t feel good when your opponents are experienced people who simply have different points of view. The existence of these impressive opponents introduces tension into the chi of your self-esteem. Similarly, the Democrats and their enablers have paid lavish attention to the tea party this year. It’s nice to feel more

Neither Steve Jobs nor Bill Gates invented the computer, despite the impressions they tend to leave. The guy with the best claim to making the first “automatic electronic digital computer” was John Atanasoff, a 34-year-old associate professor of physics at Iowa State College. So why isn’t Atanasoff as famous as Gates, or Jobs, or even his contemporary, Alan Turing? As novelist Jane Smiley (“A Thousand Acres,” “Moo”) explains in her biography of Atanasoff, “The Man Who Invented the Computer,” Iowa State didn’t really grasp what Atanasoff had wrought: “His ideas were so advanced that he had to prove they were worth something to people who did not really understand them.” The inventor himself didn’t always play nice with others, and World War II, though an enormous stimulus to computer development itself, got in the way of both patent processes and scientific information sharing. Also, some other early computer scientists adapted or stole some of Atanasoff’s work, then tried to diminish or obscure the original inventor’s role in the creation story of the machine. Atanasoff, who earned his doctorate in physics from the University of Wisconsin in 1930, began working on a calculating machine because, Smiley writes, “He saw over and over again that all scientific and engineering progress would be retarded until some sort of breakthrough in methods of calculation.” Smiley describes him as a classic American innovator, inquisitive, practical and handson. In 1937-’38, he worked out the basic principles of his machine: electronic logic circuits that would perform a calculation by turning on or off; binary enumeration, a number system with only the digits 0 and 1; capacitors for regenerative memory; and computing via direct logical action, by counting rather than measuring. The Atanasoff-Berry Computer, 74 inches long, 36 inches deep and about 40 inches tall, including casters, was operational by mid-1940. Atanasoff described how the machine worked in a 35-page paper he wrote to attract more funding. That paper became a

Nicolle Wallace, who worked as President George W. Bush’s communications director, has written a novel, “Eighteen Acres.” The book is told from the perspective of a fictional first female president, a female chief of staff and a female television anchor.

WASHINGTON — Nicolle Wallace, the tough, savvy and hard-charging conservative political operator, was laughing and explaining why Melanie Kingston, the tough, savvy and hardcharging conservative political operator who just so happens to be a protagonist in Wallace’s first novel, “Eighteen Acres,” isn’t like her at all. “I’m flattered, frankly, when people see me in her,” Wallace said, referring to her fictional character — the first female chief of staff to the first female president, Charlotte Kramer. “She is so devoted to the job that there’s nothing else in her life. People who know me know I was very devoted, very loyal, but was always like, ‘Can I go now?’ ” She laughed and, miming a White House staffer ready to flee for the day, flopped across the table at Bistro Lepic, a cozy French haunt in upper Georgetown that she used to frequent before moving to New York four years ago. And Wallace, whose gray-blue eyes and dark blond bob give her the look of the Northern California girl that she is, should know. She used to be that West Wing staffer. She worked as President George W. Bush’s communications director before signing on with Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008. The McCain-Palin campaign was troubled from the outset and Wallace emerged as a scapegoat, bearing the blame for everything from the spending spree that a McCain aide later called “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus” to Palin’s disastrous interview with Katie Couric. “It was just so demoralizing and humiliating,” Wallace said. “I was so wounded by the accusations about going shopping. I was like, ‘My God, I was the White House communications director for six years, I wrote speeches about wars, and people think I went to Neiman Marcus and bought her skirts.’ How did that happen?” When Palin’s book, “Going Rogue,” came out the next year, Wallace was a prime target. “It was just embarrassing and hurtful and sad,” said Wallace, who hasn’t read the book. “I was surprised by how delusional her account was, but I think she was so desperate to offer some explanation to her devoted followers.”

Alternating views But now, Wallace is back in the political fray on her own terms, with a debut novel named after the 18 acres on which the White House sits. “I was a campaign press secretary,” she said. “It is still so surreal to me that there is a book in your purse with my name on it.” The book is an engaging, easy read, told from the alternating points of view of three female characters — a president, a chief of staff and an up-and-coming television anchor. The plot turns

on an explosive affair (first husband, anyone?) and a disaster in the Middle East, neither of which seems implausible. Wallace, who was inspired to write a book after reading “The Devil Wears Prada” during Bush’s first term, said that she wanted to capture the current moment in Washington. “It feels new, like it’s different from the way it was 10 years ago, but it feels fleeting, too, like it’s going to be different in another 10 years,” she said. “I don’t know that the press will always be so interconnected and incestuously connected to the person they cover.” But she didn’t want to write a roman à clef with easily recognizable characters. “Mike McCurry told me, ‘Don’t keep a diary,’ so I never wrote anything down,” she said. “We were freaked out. You never wanted to be the one loser who’d been keeping a diary of everything everyone said for eight years.”

On Sarah Palin Which is not to say she was want for material. The McCain campaign was turbulent, and to those working for him, it often seemed as if anything that could go wrong did go wrong. Take, for instance, the Couric interview and what should have been a softball question about what newspapers Palin read. “I mean, in hindsight, she never should have done any interviews,” Wallace said. She recounted this in an upbeat, almost amused way, with the tone of someone who has struggled but moved on. She laughed, as if she still couldn’t quite believe how it all unfolded, and added: “I wish she’d just Tweeted. She should have been our Twitterer. But at the time, I grossly overestimated her capacity to answer questions about world affairs, about how her personal points of view were shaped.” On Election Day, Wallace didn’t even vote for the McCain-Palin ticket. “I didn’t, I didn’t,” she said slowly. She never received her absentee ballot — “and I was fine with that,” she admitted. Still, Wallace said she now wears the entire experience “as a badge of honor.” “With the benefit of hindsight and as someone who now sits alone in front of a computer, I thank God every day that after my very orderly and pleasant Bush experience, I experienced this chaotic dysfunction of the McCain-Palin world,” she said. “I’m a better writer because of it, and I think I’m a better person because of it.” Getting “Eighteen Acres” published was hardly a foregone conclusion. All she really had was “a messy Word document,” until Sloan Harris, a literary agent at International Creative Management, called her after reading a Page Six item that said she was working on a novel. He asked her to send him what she had, so she organized it into six chapters

and sent them off. He asked for more. Wallace, a quintessential good student, met each of Harris’ deadlines, sending off three to six chapters at a time until she had an actual book. “Eighteen Acres” went to Atria publishing for a sixfigure sum, and she already has a deal for the sequel. And though Wallace resisted caricaturing any of her colleagues in Washington, the politerati will certainly experience flashes of recognition. (“If I was a guessing man, I could probably get pretty close to some people,” said John Weaver, a political consultant who was one of Wallace’s early readers.) Like that affair between a journalist and a White House insider? “The McCain campaign was definitely more sexually charged than the Bush years,” Wallace said with a laugh.

‘Warrior’ women For her female president character, whose husband has an affair, Wallace turned to Hillary Clinton for inspiration: She “had the strength and presence of mind to just soldier through” her husband’s infidelity, Wallace said. “I thought it was uniquely feminine to have the strength to endure those indignities in the public eye.” And as for Melanie, the chief of staff who seems to most closely resemble Wallace herself: She is reminiscent of the women Wallace worked with, the “uncelebrated warriors, women who are doing great work and really the only thing standing between their bosses imploding is them, laying their body on the tracks every day.” “It’s like, I have the greatest job in the world, but I’m exhausted, my eyes burn, I haven’t been to the gym in two months, my family hates me, and my friends don’t even have my cell phone number,” Wallace said. “You’re relinquishing your entire life for the job, and that’s something I meant to capture in Melanie.” Life for Wallace is simpler these days. She gets up, scans the news, and heads to Central Park with her dog, Lily. She hits the gym, and then spends the rest of the day writing. She still makes appearances on the news programs — “Morning Joe,” “Good Morning America,” a little bit of CNN, Sean Hannity’s show on Fox every Wednesday night — but without the pressure of “being on message.”

critical element in a court decision that affirmed Atanasoff as the inventor of the computer in 1978. That court decision invalidated a patent other scientists had claimed. “The result,” Smiley writes, “was as John von Neumann had suspected — once the ideas became common property, innovation blossomed, and the computer revolution took hold.” Smiley deftly sketches other innovators working on similar and overlapping projects simultaneously, including Turing, von Neumann, Atanasoff rival John Mauchly and German inventor Konrad Zuse, building his own machine under the nose of the Nazis. Atanasoff’s invention was a milestone, but also only a steppingstone to the personal computers we depend on today. “The Second World War was the sine qua non of the invention of the computer and the transformation of the nature of information and the nature of human thought that the computer age has brought about,” Smiley writes. Some passages of Smiley’s bio are challenging simply because the topics, mathematical and mechanical, require effort to grasp. Her writing is clear and crisp. Her detailed account of the trial that confirmed Atanasoff’s stature could practically serve as a treatment for a “Law & Order: Intellectual Property.” She also finds plenty of drama and personality along the way: “There was no inventor of the computer,” she writes about these scientists collectively, “who was not a vivid personality, and no two are alike.” She is fair-minded to all parties in the evolution of the computer, and scrupulous in sourcing her material. Whether this was a labor of love or a bread-andbutter job for the eclectic Smiley, readers can be grateful she used her intelligence and narrative skills to tell this story.

A classic page-turner that will never fade

Book profiles Jews who sought to sway FDR

50 years later, Harper Lee’s ‘Mockingbird’ still sings

“Prelude to Catastrophe: FDR’s Jews and the Menace of Nazism” by Robert Shogan (Ivan R. Dee, 312 pgs., $27.95)

By Annette John-Hall

By Leonard Zeskind

The Philadelphia Inquirer

It’s one of those rare books that needs no introduction. Harper Lee didn’t want it to have one, either. In writing the foreword to her Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Lee noted: “ ‘Mockingbird’ still says what it has to say; it has managed to survive the years without preamble.” She’s right about that. As the literary world celebrates the golden anniversary of ‘Mockingbird,’ it still says what it has to say. The story of Atticus Finch — a white lawyer who attempts to defend an innocent black man — is told through the eyes of Scout, his 6year-old daughter. That story has stayed with me ever since I first read it in the eighth grade. Lee transported me to a world I had heard of but never been privy to: a Jim Crow world where racial oppression robbed children of their innocence and racial injustice was not only accepted but rewarded. For me, “To Kill a Mockingbird” ranks with Toni Morrison’s “Song of Solomon” as my all-time favorite novel. Lots of other folks love it, too, it seems. Voted novel of the century in a 1999 poll conducted by Library Journal, “Mockingbird” has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and has never gone out of print. Adapted for the big screen in 1962, “Mockingbird” earned three Academy Awards, including best-actor honors for Gregory Peck, who played Atticus with understated dignity. Click on “Mockingbird’s” Facebook page and it’s almost as if it’s the center of a cult, with members testifying about the book’s profound impact — that its many lessons have inspired them to become lawyers or teachers or owners of pets named Scout. Heck, British librarians have even ranked “Mockingbird” ahead of the Bible. Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but classics such as “Mockingbird” do prove that words have the power to connect — or to distance. Unlike me, many AfricanAmerican readers just don’t get “Mockingbird’s” appeal. Walter Greason, professor of history at Ursinus College, says he was more affected by such books as Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.” “The story felt closer,” he says. “Even the writing.

“ ‘Mockingbird’ still says what it has to say; it has managed to survive the years without preamble,” author Harper Lee, pictured in 2007, wrote in a foreword to her Pulitzer Prizewinning classic. It felt more rhythmical.” But it’s more than that. For some African-Americans, Lee’s prose diminished as much as it enlightened. That’s because Lee, like many other Southern white writers (think Mark Twain, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams), not only wrote about blatant white racism, but also illustrated it by her liberal use of the n-word, sprinkled throughout the novel. This not only offended black readers, it also caused some school districts to ban “Mockingbird” from classrooms. For me, the book’s value and resonance lie in its honesty. Lee depicted her world: a cloistered white world in the Jim Crow South that she wasn’t afraid to expose. A courageous act, drawing strength from the civil rights movement that was gathering momentum throughout the country. No one is disputing “Mockingbird’s” relevance. But some do notice a double standard for black and white writers who write of the black experience. They say the white perspective is almost always the one publishers favor. “It’s as if (publishers think) white writers legitimize the black experience somehow,” says Phil-

IRISH EYES UNSMILING

William Trevor’s tales full of bleak beauty “Selected Stories” by William Trevor (Viking, 576 pgs., $35)

By Julia Keller Chicago Tribune

He loves her. She’s the one, no doubt about it. They work in the same pub, and seeing her each day, all day long, has sealed his resolve. He will marry Patsy Finucane. And they will be happy. Family obligations, however, require Paulie to make a brief visit back to the farm of his birth in rural Ireland. His father has died. He must help his mother settle things. Then he can return to the city, to the life he has made there, and to Patsy. But this is a William Trevor short story, and that means Paulie’s future will slowly darken, like the sky before a storm. Paulie is torn. Is his duty to his widowed parent or to himself? If he goes back to the city, he will be haunted. If he stays on the farm — Patsy is not cut out to be a farmer’s wife — he will be lonely. He must choose between permanent guilt or permanent sadness. But there is no choice, really. Thus “The Hill Bachelors,” one of the 48 artful, evocative tales in a new collection of Trevor’s incomparable work, moves toward its inevitable conclusion. What matters is not so much Paulie’s choice — his destiny is as fixed as the gray hills that ring the farm — but the way Trevor suggests the full dimension of his character’s tragedy. The author does not resort to melodramatic language; he simply describes Paulie’s romantic life in the com-

munity to which he has exiled himself, the succession of movie dates: “When the lights went down he waited a bit before he put an arm around her, as he always had with her sisters and with Maeve. He hadn’t been able to wait with Patsy Finucane.” Passion — and its absence — thus is expertly delineated. Trevor has been turning out masterful stories for so long now that his genius is easy to take for granted. He makes it look effortless, this writing of exquisite tale after exquisite tale, each one different, each one the same. Set mainly in rural Ireland in the recent or the long-ago past, they record the moment when ordinary people become reconciled to their fate. In “Selected Stories,” each one is a small, precise jewel, so quietly displayed on the dark cloth of its design that you almost forget it was written at all. The stories seem to be objects drawn directly from an ancient landscape, rinsed and polished. There are stories that bristle with menace and dread, such as “Gilbert’s Mother,” and stories that throb with forbidden love, such as “The Potato Dealer.” There are stories whose ominous implications strike only after you’ve finished them and moved away, such as “Folie a Deux.” Trevor once called the short story “an explosion of truth.” The truths in his work — 12 collections of short stories, 14 novels — can at times seem bitter and harsh, but in the end, they dignify human striving and human suffering as nothing else does in quite the same way.

adelphia’s Diane McKinneyWhetstone, 56, author of five award-winning novels. “It’s a bit of a tightrope because by questioning, people will look at it as a criticism,” she says. “But it’s a legitimate question — why do some (white authors) get the recognition and not (black writers)?” When a black story is written by a black author, it doesn’t seem to get the same support or readership, says award-winning author Bernice L. McFadden, 44, author of seven novels. Marketing also differs according to the race of the author, which may express conscious or unconscious assumptions that hurt black writers’ chances. In a June 26 Washington Post article headlined “Black Writers in a Ghetto of the Publishing Industry’s Making,” McFadden notes that her first novel, “Sugar” — which, like Kathryn Stockett’s “The Help” and Sue Monk Kidd’s “The Secret Life of Bees,” was published by Penguin — was a tale of African-Americans living in the South, and received critical acclaim. Yet, while the books by Stockett and Kidd, both white writers, were promoted to readers of all races, McFadden says her novel was marketed solely to African-Americans. That extended all the way to the book covers. “The Help” and “The Secret Life of Bees” had covers that did not reveal the race of the main characters. “Sugar’s” cover showed a black woman leaning against a screen door. White publishers have taken it upon themselves to be arbiters of black stories for white readers, says McFadden. Maybe it’s because black authors tend to write more poignantly and painfully about oppression. Tales of hardship or discrimination, as told by African-American writers, seldom sugarcoat or gloss over the worst. McFadden says that’s what Stockett did in “The Help.” “I would have gone into more detail where (Stockett) didn’t take the opportunity to explain,” says McFadden. “I guess that’s what (publishers) want. They don’t want books that delve into the heart of these issues because it would be too offensive” to white readers. Maybe, says Herman Beavers, a professor of English at the Uni-

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

In 1939, before his invasion of Poland, Adolf Hitler allowed 907 Jews to leave Germany on a Hamburg-American liner, the St. Louis. The ship was bound for Cuba, according to a deal that would have allowed the refugees to land and find a safe haven. Many had plans to enter the United States, where relatives were waiting. At the last minute, the Cubans reneged on the deal. Representatives of the Joint Distribution Committee, a Jewish agency charged with helping Hitler’s victims, tried but failed to find a safe port for the ship’s passengers in the United States or elsewhere. They were returned to Europe, where many were murdered. This story was told in the 1967 book “While Six Million Died: A Chronicle of American Apathy,” by Arthur Morse. These events entered the annals of Holocaust history and are remembered today as an iconic reference point for the hostility and indifference that greeted European Jews during that period. The St. Louis does not appear in Robert Shogan’s new book, “Prelude to Catastrophe.” Instead of recounting how immigration laws written by Anglo-Saxon purists in the 1920s kept Jewish refugees off shore decades later, Shogan focuses on the few powerful Jews in President Franklin Roosevelt’s circle of advisers. He is evenhanded in his approach to these men — and they are all men. He recounts their connections to American presidents, beginning with Woodrow Wilson and Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. Brandeis, for whom the university in Massachusetts is named, was the unofficial dean of American Jewry during these decades. He was instrumental in bolstering the case for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. On the occasion of Kristallnacht in Germany in 1938, when shops, synagogues and homes were vandalized and burned and Jews rounded up for arrest, however, Brandeis was missing. Instead, he wired

versity of Pennsylvania, acceptance by white readers depends on the way white characters are portrayed. While Beavers lauds “Mockingbird” for its beautiful prose and well-drawn characters, he points out that Lee cast protagonist Atticus in a benevolent light, which made the story easier for white readers to digest — even though Lee puts most of the book’s white community on the wrong side of morality. Doesn’t matter how the truth goes down, just as long as it goes down, says Philadelphia writer Karen E. Quinones Miller, author of nine books. She argues that white writers help combat ignorance when they write of black life for a readership that previously may not have known, or cared. “Books like ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ and even ‘Huckleberry Finn’ are needed because they changed sentiments,” Miller says. What nobody can argue is the impact Lee’s storytelling had on readers. “To Kill a Mockingbird,” with its multilayered, intricately woven tales of family and community, is a commentary on race relations. A lesson on injustice. A coming-of-age page-turner. A guidebook to family dysfunction and mental illness. A love-thyneighbor parable. And, lest we forget, a loving observation of single fatherhood. “I wanted to be Scout because I wanted Atticus to be my father,” says Miller, 52, who grew up in a single-parent household in Harlem. “I wanted to have the safety net of the community and a father I could go to at any time.” Philadelphia writer Solomon Jones, whose sixth novel, “The Last Confession,” drops in November, recently took time out to read “To Kill a Mockingbird” for the first time. Weeks later, it’s still on his mind. “Incredible. It was just incredible,” Jones says. “It did what all stories should do — it made me feel something.” That’s from neither a black nor a white perspective — it’s purely from a book-lover’s perspective.

Rabbi Stephen Wise, “Think Skipper (Roosevelt) should not be called upon to make suggested protest he expressed himself fully.” Wise, head of the World Jewish Congress at the time, bemoaned Brandeis’ inaction and seemed more forceful than any of the other personalities here. He had access to the president but not Brandeis’ influence. We read in anguish when he first tried to inform administration officials that the mass murders had started, but he could not get a memo past the obstructionists in the State Department. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, born in Vienna in 1882, was an American success story. He graduated from City College of New York at the age of 19, went to Harvard Law School and joined the ranks of the legal do-gooders of New York City before becoming part of the circle around Roosevelt, then New York’s governor. He helped President Roosevelt find talented individuals, particularly lawyers from Harvard, for the administration. Frankfurter was often a target of anti-Semites aiming to prove that Roosevelt was under the thumb of “the Jews.” But as Shogan shows us in detail, he did little on behalf of European Jews. Indeed, he was a circumspect figure who was unwilling to appear sectarian. In the end, Brandeis, Frankfurter and Wise, like other Jewish figures at the time, were unable to move Roosevelt on matters related to European Jews. His administration was hemmed in by isolationists and others who wanted no part of the war. When the United States did enter the fighting, it did so for its own interests, not at the pleading of Jews. They could not even persuade the administration to bomb the railroad tracks that carried men, women and children into Auschwitz. If Shogan’s “Prelude to Catastrophe” is the story of a few powerful Jewish men, it is also a lesson in the actual limits of Jewish influence in American life.

Rise in use of prescription painkillers at work Drug testing at some companies has expanded to include the synthetic opiates found in prescription painkillers, and the tests document an increasing use of such drugs. Hydrocodone, the major ingredient in the painkiller Vicodin, was detected in almost 4 percent of those given post-accident testing. Some states have enacted laws to restrict testing, while others encourage it.

The implementation of the drug tests coincided with Dura’s participation in Tennessee’s Drug-Free Workplace Program, which provides incentives that include lower workers’ compensation insurance premiums. Many states have a drug-free workplace program — a concept that developed after Congress passed the 1988 law requiring companies with federal contracts to adopt drug policies. But the programs have barely changed in the 20 years since they were conceived and focus heavily on illegal drugs. Meanwhile, the laws on drug testing are complex and vary from state to state. Several, for

Dr. Barry Sample, director of science and technology for the Employer Solutions business of Quest Diagnostics, said the smartest thing employers can do is come up with a thorough and consistent policy that spells out which drugs their workers might be tested for and under what circumstances. Supervisors, he said, should be carefully trained to look for signs of impairment — the “reasonable suspicion” necessary under law to warrant testing. Although Dura officials said in court documents that the goal of expanded testing was to protect employees, some plaintiffs in the lawsuits claim they were injured on the job and supervisors knew about the medications they were taking. Others say they believe the company wanted to get rid of them because they were costing it thousands of dollars in insurance premiums, a charge the company has denied. “The reason I was taking the medication was a work-related injury,” said Mark Long, 38, who worked at Dura and was fired for taking hydrocodone. “I really didn’t expect for my job to end.” Supervisors worried that

place, then there should be some sort of program where they can teach us how that affects you or see if something else can be worked out,” Bates said. “But that was not an option for us.”

National efforts

Finding a balance

employees, who manufactured hundreds of thousands of windows for automotive companies including General Motors and Ford within very close proximity of one another, could cause a “domino effect” if one was impaired and had an accident. Long said he had stopped taking Lortab after losing his job because the pain subsided when he was not working full-time. With work scarce in Lawrenceburg, a city of 14,000 in south-central Tennessee, Long drives 70 miles each way to work as a boat mechanic in northern Alabama. Bates, whose job was trimming car window molding, says she has been unable to find another job. She says she understands Dura’s safety concerns but feels the company should have worked with employees who take prescription drugs rather than fire them. “If the medicine they’re taking is not good for them or the work-

llia

Setting rules about prescription drug use in the workplace is tricky, not least because it is difficult to prove impairment. Under Dura’s policy, a prescription drug was considered unsafe if its label included a warning against driving or operating machinery, but doctors say many users function normally despite such warnings. Also, some employers find it difficult to deal with the problem partly for fear of violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. It prohibits asking employees about prescription drugs unless workers are seen acting in a way that compromises safety or suggests they cannot perform their job for medical reasons, according to lawyers with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. “We’re up against 20 years of training on the ADA that essentially suggests, ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell,’ ” said Steven Bernstein, an employment lawyer in Tampa, Fla. Christopher Kuczynski, assistant legal counsel in the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s policy division for the Americans with Disabilities Act, said, “The employer must have reasonable belief the person is unable to do the job or poses a threat based on a medical condition.” The only exception is for police officers, firefighters and others in public safety jobs, Kuczynski said. They can be required to self-report the use of prescription medication if their inability or impaired ability to perform their job functions would result in a direct threat, he added. Even with bus and truck driv-

safety-sensitive workers to be tested for. That leaves employers in even the most safety-sensitive fields to make their own decisions about whether to test for synthetic opiates and other commonly used legal drugs. And many are skittish, even though anecdotes abound about people misusing or abusing prescription drugs in the workplace. “I’ve seen people have their fingers cut off because they or somebody they depended on to operate machinery properly was out of it,” said Dr. Neil Capretto, medical director at Gateway Rehabilitation Center in Aliquippa, Pa. “We treat some people in construction who say so many of their co-workers are using, they sometimes have to change careers because it’s too much of a trigger for them to go back to work after rehab.”

Wi

Challenges for employers

example, prohibit or greatly restrict random drug testing, while many others give employers broad discretion, even providing incentives for employers to drug test their employees like discounts on workers’ compensation premiums. Employers can ask workers in safety-sensitive jobs to self-report any potentially dangerous prescription medications, but they cannot ensure they do so. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration urges companies to train supervisors to look for signs of drug abuse. But an incorrect assessment can land an employer in court, DuPont said. “If somebody puts his head down on a desk, do you test him for drugs or not?” he said. “The first time you get an employee who says you’re harassing them, you’re not going to test anyone else even if they’re passed out.” Many doctors, meanwhile, say that most people can tolerate and function well on pain medication taken under their supervision. “In general,” said Dr. Seddon Savage, a pain specialist at Dartmouth College and president of the American Pain Society, “well-prescribed opioids at a stable dose that are well supervised in most healthy people won’t cause sedation or other cognitive problems.” Cochran said that opiate painkillers can help workers do their jobs better if taken appropriately. “I think they terminated some people who were not in any way compromised,” he said of Dura. Yet Cochran also estimated that about 15 percent of his patients misuse painkillers and said that he understood why employers would be worried. At the very least, DuPont said, the standardized testing that is now mandatory for transportation and nuclear workers should be expanded to include more legal drugs. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recently added a sixth drug, ecstasy, to the panel of five — marijuana; cocaine; amphetamines; phencyclidine, or PCP; and nonsynthetic opiates — that it has long required

Continued from F1 There is a dearth of data from independent groups regarding impairment from prescription drugs in the workplace, partly because the issue has not drawn broad scrutiny. But Quest Diagnostics, a prominent provider of workplace drug tests, said that the rate of employees testing positive for prescription opiates rose by more than 40 percent between 2005 and 2009, and by 18 percent last year alone. The data, culled from the results of more than 500,000 drug tests, also indicated that workers who were tested for drugs after accidents were four times more likely to have opiates in their systems than those tested before being hired. “It’s not nearly on employer radar screens as much as it should be,” said Mark de Bernardo, executive director of the Institute for a Drug-Free Workplace, a nonprofit business coalition near Washington, D.C., and a senior partner at Jackson Lewis, an employment law firm. “Given the liability for industrial accidents or product defects or workplace injuries involving prescription drug abuse, employers cannot afford not to address this issue.” Nor is the problem limited to factory floors like the one at Dura’s plant here, where conveyor belts are in constant motion and tow drivers shuttle pieces of glass from station to station, former workers said. In Texas, a prominent prosecutor resigned in 2008 after a scandal for which he blamed impaired judgment because of prescription drugs. And in Missouri, a patient sued alleging that a doctor had torn a hole in his colon during a 2006 colonoscopy while taking the painkiller oxycodone. Dr. Carl Rollyn Sullivan, director of addictions programs at the West Virginia University School of Medicine in Morgantown, said he had treated “a lot of miners telling me the ridiculous amount of drugs they’re doing underground,” most of them legally prescribed.

ers, nuclear plant workers and others in jobs that the federal government deems “safety sensitive,” employers are required to test for only six categories of drugs that do not cover synthetic painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, or other controlled prescription drugs. (Because the test looks for codeine and morphine, which experts say are far less abused than the synthetics, many employers wrongly assume it looks for all opiates.) “That is just a devastating critique of the government’s role in this,” said Dr. Robert DuPont, president of the Institute for Behavior and Health near Washington. “It’s a very serious hole in the system.” Donna Bush, a senior forensic toxicologist at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, which sets parameters for federal drug testing, said the group is not pushing to add more prescription drugs. “Which ones do we add?” she asked. “Drug testing for illicit illegal drugs is very easy because presence is an offense.” Employers can choose to test for more drugs, which is what Dura decided to do at its Lawrenceburg plant in 2007. Citing concerns about drug use and worker safety, Dura hired an independent company to administer random drug tests. Dura chose to screen for 12 types of drugs, including hydrocodone and oxycodone. “The goal of the plan was to provide a safe environment,” Lindy Boots, the plant’s former human resources manager, said in a deposition. The concerns were not totally unfounded, some employees who worked at the plant said in interviews. A plaintiff said he knew of workers using illegal drugs on the job, and other former employees said they suspected people were passing around prescription drugs. “If they had a headache or something was hurting some of them would give them one of their Lortabs,” said Willarene Fisher, a former employee who failed the drug test, of her former co-workers. Fisher is also suing. Representatives of Dura declined to comment, citing the continuing lawsuit. It is one of two that have been filed against Dura; the other was brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Both cases are currently in court. Court records show that over a week in May 2007, about 500 employees at the company’s Lawrenceburg plant submitted urine samples under the new testing policy. Of those, 44 tested positive for prescription drugs. They were put on a 30-day leave of absence and had to pass a second test to return to their jobs. Susan Lowery, a former supervisor at the plant who tested positive for oxycodone, said the drug had kept her functioning after three back surgeries and did not affect her job performance. “My record was clean,” said Lowery, a plaintiff in one of two lawsuits against Dura. “I was there every day no matter how I felt.”

After 2 years, writer assesses domestic eco-friendly projects By Susan Carpenter Los Angeles Times

It started with gray water, then escalated to chickens, composting toilets and rain barrels. I’m talking about the two years I’ve spent transforming my humble California bungalow into a test case for sustainable living — an experience that’s cost me hundreds of hours of my time and thousands of dollars, an endeavor that has tested the limits of not only my checkbook but also my sanity — and my DIY skills. When I first delved into the subject, the idea was to look at environmentally promising home improvement projects through the eyes of a budget-minded consumer. I had seen so much media coverage that heaped praise on newly constructed eco-manses or expensive retrofit products, but the stories didn’t answer my biggest question: For the green-minded person writing the checks, are the improvements worth the time, effort and expense? Although everything I retrofitted seemed wise at the time I did it, hindsight tells a different story.

By Tim Doran Motorists driving along U.S. Highway 20 on the east side of Bend can spot a sign of stability returning to the auto industry after two years of turmoil. Just past Pilot Butte, Smolich Motors has announced changes that will provide more individual identities to some of the seven new vehicle product lines the company now sells. Managers at Smolich and several other auto dealers say the industry has settled down; they’ve reduced expenses to better align with economic conditions and industry production; and so far this year, business has been a little better than expected. “Things have stabilized,” said John Younger, general manager of Smolich Motors. Unfortunately, here in Bend, we’ve taken a pretty big hit. We’re a bit slower to come around. But we feel pretty good about 2010 (and 2011), to be honest.” The economic crisis that officially began in late 2007 and brought a near collapse in late 2008, helped rearrange the retail car and truck market in Central Oregon. The credit crunch prompted Murray and Holt Motors in Bend to end sales of new Buick, Pontiac and GMC vehicles in March 2009. See Dealerships / G3

at good, do good and make good happen. That’s how Bob Pearson describes the new Common Table restaurant in downtown Bend. It’s a place he and others in Bend’s First Presbyterian Church began conceiving four years ago as an alternative way to feed people in need while also creating a sense of connection and community for people from all walks of life. Common Table is a new-model restaurant, a social-entrepreneurial experiment and nonprofit enterprise. All profits remaining after food and overhead costs are used to pay for meals at the restaurant for people who otherwise couldn’t afford to eat out. They could be people who’ve lost work or suffered some other setback, people who might hold jobs but can’t afford a nice meal for themselves or their children, the list is endless. But it’s a place, too, for people who can afford to dine out and are looking for an excellent meal, a good glass of wine or cocktail. Judging by the menu, the food is interesting and moderately priced. The executive chef’s résumé includes the Broken Top Club restaurant and former Bluefish Bistro. It’s a place where everyone can mix, eat at the same table if they wish (the restaurant’s centerpiece is a beautiful 20-foot-long black walnut table), share conversation, read a book and hear occasional presentations on topics like locally produced food and beer. That’s why Zach Hancock, who cofounded the restaurant with Pearson and others, prefers to call it a cafe. “It’s a place to interact,” Hancock said. The cafe sees value, not risk, in paying customers dining and connecting with people who are using tokens, Pearson said. Common Table is well-timed in an economy where so many people are struggling. But even in a healthy economy, there’s never a shortage of people for whom Common Table would be a nourishing, welcoming place. Customers also can buy $10 tokens to give to people they want to help, whether friends, family, coworkers, neighbors or strangers. See someone on the street corner, but don’t want to give cash? Give him or her a token to buy a healthy meal at Common Table — $10 will buy most meals at the cafe in the former Cork restaurant space at 150 Oregon Ave. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Tokens cannot be used on alcohol. Common Table also plans to provide tokens to organizations like Family Access Network and NeighborImpact to distribute to clients who could use a healthy, hearty meal. While FAN isn’t likely to get enough tokens to provide meals to each of nearly 8,000 children and family members it serves in Deschutes County, the tokens are a welcome tool, said FAN Director Julie Lyche. “I like the idea of Common Table,” said Lyche, who’s dined there three times in its first month. “I like the idea of having a restaurant where all people are welcome and you can walk in the door and everybody can come and have a meal.” It’s not a soup-kitchen atmosphere, it feels, looks, sounds and acts like a regular restaurant and the food is great, she said. Paul Evers, president of tbd advertising in Bend, agreed to help brand and market Common Table pro bono because he believes deeply in its cause. “Ultimately, it will be effective at breaking down the barriers that divide us on social (and) economic levels as a community,” Evers said. Common Table is living up to the tenet that “good food is a right, not a privilege.” While Pearson said the Presbyterian Church has committed $200,000 to the restaurant from national and regional grants and two other Bend churches, Nativity Lutheran and Trinity Episcopal, are supporting the cause and applying for grants to help, Common Table’s mission is not to get customers in the door to convert them. “That’s not part of our ethos at all,” Pearson said. It’s a new way to serve. It’s about offering an excellent dining experience for all, feeding people in need with dignity and respect, and building a community presence, he said. Said Hancock, ordained in the Presbyterian church, “We’re all about being in the same family. … It’s golden rule stuff.” Common Table embodies that.

With snow covering the mountains around Bend, summer seems like a distant memory, but now’s the time when farmers and ranchers are working to upgrade to more energy-efficient irrigation systems with $1 million in federal funds awarded for projects in Central and Eastern Oregon. In the Madras area, the North Unit Irrigation District has been awarded a $200,000 grant for soil moisture monitoring and technical support to help growers determine the optimum conditions and times to irrigate. “That is a great example of a project that has lots of benefits besides saving energy,” said Stephanie Paige of the Oregon Department of Agriculture. “It improves crop yields and saves water by helping farmers maintain the right soil moisture. “Too much water can be as hard on crops as not enough water,” Paige said. With net farm profits dropping to the lowest levels since 1934, during the depths of the Great Depression, Paige said farmers and ranchers are looking for every way possible to reduce their production and operating costs. The Wasco Soil and Water Conservation District also was awarded a $200,000 grant to help fund the purchase and installation of variable-speed motors on irrigation pumps to improve energy efficiency for irrigating crops in the Fifteen Mile Watershed in Wasco County. Pump upgrades similar to those in Wasco County also will be installed in the Klamath Basin with $200,000 in grant money, and in Gilliam, Grant, Moro Umatilla and Wheeler counties with another $200,000 grant, Paige said. The Three Sisters Irrigation District in western Deschutes County also was awarded $10,000 to upgrade irrigation pumps to improve energy efficiency, Paige said. Even without grant funding, Bill Mintiens, manager of Three Sisters Irrigation District, said there are myriad things farmers and ranchers in Central Oregon are doing to improve energy efficiency and reduce water usage with their irrigation systems. “Things as simple as changing out sprinkler heads and repairing leaky pipes can make a big difference,” Mintiens said.

Hiring the right employees, with or without help By Adriana Gardella New York Times News Service

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, about 43 percent of Americans’ carbon footprint comes from buildings. Solar-powered electricity is a great option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, if homeowners can afford it. Incentives through the federal and state government help. Over time, I occasionally questioned the wisdom of some actions. The idealist in me finds value in every improvement, but the realist can’t deny that some have been far better in payback — if not finan-

THE BUSINESS: Fikes Products is a company of 30 employees that sells janitorial supplies and services to restaurants, retailers and other businesses. There are about 20 independently owned Fikes around the country. Mark Sims, 38, president and owner of the Kent, Wash.-based company, said last year’s combined sales for the two operations were slightly more than $4 million. THE CHALLENGE: To make the high-quality hires that Sims needs to continue building his business — without the benefit of a human resources manager. THE BACKGROUND: Sims acquired the Puget Sound business from his parents after they retired in 2003. At the time, the company had just five employees. With his passion and talent for sales, Sims expanded, opening a branch in Portland in 2007. Heading into 2010, he knew he needed help. He planned to hire an office administrator, two route drivers and a warehouse worker. Beginning in the third quarter of 2009, he toyed with the idea of hiring an operations manager who could handle some of the day-to-day tasks that were starting to drain him professionally and personally.

Net movies draw renters, not buyers By Ben Fritz Los Angeles Times

Consumers long ago switched their shopping habits to the Internet, so that now most don’t hesitate to buy cameras, TVs, books, appliances, cars, clothing, even foreclosed homes online. There appears to be no product that shoppers don’t prefer to buy with the click of a mouse. No product, that is, except movies. A strange thing has happened on the way to the digital revolution. For more than a decade, Internet movie downloads and streaming — the two ways to watch movies online — were too complex for all but dedicated techies to use. In the past couple of years, however, a proliferation of new consumer-friendly devices like Apple TV, PlayStation 3 and Web-enabled televisions have finally started to push online viewing of movies into the mainstream. But although more people are turning to the Internet to watch movies, they have little interest in buying them. “We are finally at the tipping point where digital is becoming relevant,” said Curt Marvis, president of digital media for Lionsgate. “But right now, rental is dominant over sales.” The shift in consumer habits is destabilizing for the Hollywood studios that had been hoping people would seamlessly transfer their DVD-buying habit to the Web. Hollywood’s DVD gusher, which propped up studio profits for more than a decade, peaked at $20 billion in 2006, more than twice that of box office ticket sales. DVD sales were far more profitable than rentals, because the discs cost less than $1 each to stamp and were sold to retailers for $17. But in the last few years DVD sales have plunged as recessionweary consumers cut spending and switched to cheaper rentals from Netflix and Redbox. Lower-margin rentals have, in turn, resulted in lower revenue for the studios. Sales of more expensive high-definition Blu-ray discs are growing, but not enough to make up the difference. In the long run, home entertainment will eventually become primar-

ily an online business, just like music. For the movie studios to maintain profits, it’s crucial that they persuade consumers to keep buying movies online. “If purchases keep declining or go away and the industry migrates to rental and subscriptions in the digital world, there will inevitably be a reordering of finances in Hollywood,” said Warren Lieberfarb, a consultant who was previously president of home video for Warner Bros.

Going online The trend toward online rentals has been accelerating. U.S. consumers will rent 37.7 million movies online this year for $3 to $5 each, according to Screen Digest. That’s a nearly sevenfold increase from 2007, and it doesn’t include the more than 300 million estimated videos streamed via Netflix’s subscription rental service. Meanwhile, consumers will buy about 20 million movies this year for $10 to $15, a less than threefold increase since 2007. There’s little dispute over why online viewing is flipping to renting from buying: Rentals provide the same experience for the same price as a DVD from Blockbuster without requiring people to get up from the couch. When consumers buy a DVD, however, they expect to be able

“If purchases keep declining or go away and the industry migrates to rental and subscriptions in the digital world, there will inevitably be a reordering of finances in Hollywood.” — Warren Lieberfarb, former president of home video for Warner Bros. to watch it as frequently as they want, whether it’s on a player in the living room, bedroom or minivan. Online digital purchases of movies cost the same as a DVD but can’t be easily transferred between devices because of the same technical differences that make it impossible to use Mac software on a PC. Some who follow the home entertainment industry believe the die is already cast. Renting a movie online is so simple, they say, that there will be little need to own a film anymore. “We’re almost inevitably moving toward a model in which download-to-own is a niche business,” said Arash Amel, research director for digital media at Screen Digest. Mitch Singer disagrees. The chief technology officer of Sony Pictures has spent more than four years putting together a coalition called Ultraviolet. Its members — studios, manufacturers and online stores — are working to allow anyone who buys a movie online to watch it on an array of devices. Currently in tests and expected to launch next year, Ultraviolet would allow consumers to

store movies they buy in a “digital locker” accessible from any connected device. A user could theoretically buy a film from a Web-enabled TV and then allow their child at college to watch it on a mobile phone. Studios are considering other far-reaching plans to encourage digital movie sales, from free online copies of DVDs consumers already own to preloaded movies on new electronic devices. “2011 might be a watershed

There are also plans to make rentals more profitable by charging as much as $30 for “premium” video-on-demand before a DVD release — in effect, a surcharge for getting to watch the movie earlier. But obstacles remain. Convincing consumers it’s worth learning to use a new online registration system is no easy task. “It’s very challenging to describe this to consumers,” said Bruce Anderson, senior vice president of Blockbuster’s digital efforts. And not every company is part of Ultraviolet. Walt Disney Studios is working on a competing venture called Keychest. Apple, the biggest seller of movies online, is not participating in either project. Meanwhile, because of studios’ deals with pay-cable channels such as HBO, movies disappear from and reappear in online stores with no explanation, potentially confusing customers. That’s because the networks have exclusive rights to pipe movies into homes during a series of cycles that begin four to six months after the DVD release. These pay-cable “windows” are so restrictive that consumers wouldn’t even be able to access movies they own in Ultraviolet’s digital locker during one of those blackout periods.

Studio executives say they’re optimistic that particular headache will be resolved soon. But the pay channels are unlikely to allow movies to be sold online while they have the rights unless they negotiate a reduction in rights fees worth hundreds of millions of dollars per year. “We anticipate finding common ground with our studio partners on the issue of digital technology just as we have with many other technological enhancements over the years,” said Bruce Grivetti, HBO’s president of film programming. “We pay a premium price to our studio partners, and in return our subscribers get what they expect from HBO: high-quality, exclusive content.” Digital distribution veterans say the HBO conflict is the latest example of a tension that has always underlain the business: the desire to increase Internet revenue without putting substantial but shrinking profits from DVDs and television at risk. “It’s a bit of a Catch-22,” said Jim Ramo, who was chief executive of Movielink, a defunct joint venture among five major studios to sell movies online. “The studios don’t want to risk their traditional model unless they see an opportunity to make more in online distribution. Yet unless they add something new to digital, they may be holding that business back.”

Fikes Continued from G1 “There was no one to take work off Mark’s plate,” said Dan Price, who is founder of Gravity Payments, a credit card processor, and has served as an informal adviser to Sims through their chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization. “A first senior hire is daunting for an entrepreneur,” Price said. In fact, the prospect of carving out time to make hires was daunting to Sims. He recalled spending three days sorting through résumés when he could have been out getting business. With the unemployment rate high, the number of job applicants has surged, making screening all the more timeconsuming. “I get résumés for driver positions from applicants who don’t even have a license,” he said. In addition, Sims conceded he did not have the best track record when it came to hiring. Last year, for example, he brought on employees who seemed “fine” but did not last. A driver he found on Craigslist wrecked a new vehicle. A new office staff member spent up to 30 percent of her workday on personal social media use, distracting others. “Despite the economy, we aren’t attracting the quality candidates we’d hoped for,” said Sims, who lamented a “deteriorating work ethic” and said many candidates did not seem committed to building a career. “I want to get people excited about working here — even if we do sell toilet paper and Dumpster deodorizers.” THE OPTIONS: To find his operations manager and to fill the lower-level positions, Sims considered running ads and browsing résumés posted on state employment agency websites. At first glance, this seemed the least expensive way to go (Fikes can post ads on Washington state’s career and employment site free

Dealerships Continued from G1 As part of bailout, bankruptcy and downsizing, Chrysler and General Motors eliminated thousands of dealers nationwide in spring 2009, including several in Central Oregon. Chrysler took the Chrysler and Dodge lines from Thomas Sales and Service in Bend and gave them to Smolich, which already had the Jeep franchise. GM decided to end its Chevrolet and Cadillac franchise agreements with Bob Thomas Car Co., severing a sales relationship Thomas’ family began with the automaker in 1916. Redmond dealer Dave Hamilton Chevrolet-Jeep, which lost its Jeep line in Chrysler’s downsizing, went out of business. Jeff Robberson, president of Robberson Ford Lincoln Mercury Mazda, provided an illustration of the recent upheaval in the region’s new vehicle market. On the list of longest-operating Central Oregon car dealers selling the same brand, Robberson Ford, founded by his father, Gordon, in 1958, ranked fourth several years ago, behind Bob Thomas Car Co., Thomas Sales and Service, and Murray and Holt. Today, Robberson Ford sits at the top. Murray and Holt sells used vehicles at its same location on Northeast Franklin Avenue. Thomas Sales and Service op-

Mark Sims, president and owner of Fikes Products, left, with customer service manager John Lawler in Kent, Wash., in October. Fikes products is a company of 30 employees that sells janitorial supplies and services to restaurants, retailers and other businesses, with about 20 independently owned Fikes around the country. of charge). But after factoring in the time for culling résumés, Sims was less convinced that this was the best way to find candidates, particularly a strong No. 2. His other option was to hire a recruiter, at least to find the operations manager. But Sims was not enthusiastic about spending that kind of money — typically 20 percent to 30 percent of the hire’s six-figure salary. He had worked previously with a recruiter who had charged much less ($1,500 per placement), but offered little value. THE DECISION: In consultation with Price, who had taken his own company to 53 employees, from 10, in the previous four years, Sims decided to use a recruiter to find his operations manager, beginning the process last November.

The agency began by interviewing Sims, who said he was surprised to realize during the conversation just how much he disliked operations. Once the agency understood his needs, it sent him the résumés of 12 candidates. Of those, Sims selected six and spent a day interviewing them back-to-back. He then ranked them and scheduled second interviews with the top two — a former chief financial officer and a former tech entrepreneur who had built a business from three to 35 employees before selling it. Sims, Price and a human resources employee from Gravity Payments conducted second interviews at the agency. The process took half a day. Sims interviewed one candidate while Price and his colleague interviewed the other,

and then they switched. Sims said the most valuable part of the process came when he and Price sat down afterward. “I think I might have made the wrong choice if left to my own devices,” Sims said. While both applicants were highly qualified, Sims said he was inclined to hire the tech entrepreneur who possessed strengths similar to his own, a person more focused on vision than tasks. “I felt strongly that Mark needed day-to-day help with the financial and operational aspects of the business and not with management and strategy,” Price said. The former chief financial officer started in early January, and he immediately took accounting and finance off Sims’ plate. “This was the first time I stepped up

erates Subaru of Bend at 2060 N.E. Highway 20, the lot where it once sold Dodge and Chrysler vehicles. Medford-based Lithia Motors, the ninth-largest auto dealer in the U.S., took over Bob Thomas’ GM lines and bought his Honda franchise in July. At Smolich Motors, employees have been making room for the new lines, said Younger and Andrew Smolich, assistant service and parts director. Automakers want their vehicles displayed and sold in their own space, they said, so Smolich has been moving some product lines and remodeling buildings. Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep will have a home at 1865 Highway 20, Smolich said, just east of the Smolich Nissan dealership. To give it a Chrysler look, Smolich will retool the facade, adding an arched entryway, according to a city permit issued earlier this month. Volvo and Suzuki have been moved to the building just east of the Chrysler location, and the Hyundai dealership moved in July to the northwest corner of Highway 20 and Purcell Boulevard, into the remodeled building that formerly housed Smolich Motors. It’s not only Smolich that’s changing the Highway 20 auto landscape. Toyota Scion of Bend expects to move from the southwest corner of Highway 20 and Purcell

into its new home on South Third Street, next to Mercedes-Benz of Bend. The move was planned before the recession, and Todd Sprague, who owns both the Mercedes and Toyota dealerships, said business is way up and his “market is quite strong.” The new Toyota dealership, for which he plans to seek Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, should be finished in December. Sprague said he does not know what will happen to the current site, as he does not own the property. Officials with Lithia Motors did not respond to questions about what, if any, changes might be made with the Chevrolet, Cadillac and Honda franchises, both of which remain under one roof on Third Street south of Franklin. On its overall business, however, the publicly traded company reported better than expected third-quarter results Wednesday in a conference call with analysts and expects modest improvement in the fourth quarter and into 2011. Bryan DeBoer, Lithia’s president and chief operating officer, said the environment in the industry has made running the business a little more comfortable, allowing the company to make more accurate forecasts. Lithia operates 85 dealerships in 12 states. “We’re starting to see more people come back in, and they

have more disposable income,” DeBoer said. However, he said Oregon and Alaska continue to be among the weakest markets. Nationally, car and truck sales have increased 10.3 percent through September compared with the first three quarters of 2009, according to data from the National Automobile Dealers Association. One indication of auto industry improvement came on Tuesday when Ford Motor Co., which did not take a government bailout, announced net income of $1.7 billion in the third quarter. Robberson, president of the Bend and Prineville Ford dealerships, said he shares DeBoer’s cautious optimism. Like other dealers and many other businesses, Robberson had to reduce costs and look for other sources of revenue. The dealerships employ 82 in Bend and Prineville, down from a peak of 126 several years ago. Unlike many other dealers, Robberson Ford offers bodywork in its collision center for all models, and recently increased the light maintenance services offered through its Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center and expanded the service to Prineville. Customers can now get brake, tire, battery and other light maintenance performed at Quick Lane, along with oil changes, Robberson said. They don’t need an appointment, and

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, October 31, 2010 G3 and used a professional agency,” and it was worth it,” Sims said a month later. Best of all, the operations manager assumed responsibility for filling the four remaining spots. The manager estimated that he spent 20 percent of his time in January and February on hiring, weeding through 1,500 résumés for the administrative position alone. WHAT OTHER OWNERS SAY: Other business owners with similar experiences were asked to comment. Fan Bi, founder, Blank Label, an online custom shirt retailer for men: “Given that Mr. Sims was at the $4 million revenue mark, about to make his most senior hire, and had a bad hiring track record, Mr. Price was definitely correct to encourage him to use a professional recruiter.” Barry Kahn, chief executive, Qcue, which uses dynamic pricing software to help sports and entertainment organizations set ticket prices: “When discussing our company with a respected contact I had met at a conference a year prior, he offered to introduce me to some people who would be good fits for us. Instead of accepting, I asked, ‘What would it take for you to be interested?’ Within two weeks he gave notice to his former employer. Within three months after he joined us, we tripled our client base.” Laura Zander, co-owner, Jimmy Beans Wool, an online yarn retailer: “Take advantage of your local university! To narrow the number of candidates, we work with the school to specify the subjects the applicants must be majoring in. To further limit the number of responses, we require that all applicants submit cover letters and their current GPA. We only consider résumés from students with top-tier GPAs. We’ve had tremendous luck finding both part-time and fulltime employees this way — and rarely search for candidates any other way.”

they save time. “It’s brought our biggest percentage growth in the business in ’09 and 2010,” he said. While Robberson Ford may now be the Central Oregon auto dealer with the longest tenure selling the same product, Jeff Robberson said the economic crisis made clear that “you can never rest on your laurels. “(You have to ask), what do we do differently to adapt to today’s market?” Tim Doran can be reached at 541-383-0360 or at tdoran@bendbulletin.com.

Irrigation Continued from G1 He said farmers in the Sisters area, like farmers everywhere, are motivated to reduce energy and water use because they want to get the most yields out of their crops with the lowest possible costs. “What we are really trying to do is help irrigators and farmers become more efficient with their irrigation practices,” Paige said. She added that the ODA is working to help farmers make the transition from the older practices, such as flood irrigation and delivering water with open canals, to using pipelines and pump irrigation systems that supply water to efficient wheel lines and circle irrigation systems. Paige said funding for the grants came from the federal stimulus funds allocated to the Oregon Department of Energy, which made $1 million available to the ODA for grants to help irrigators install more energy-efficient irrigation equipment and other energy-saving improvements. All of the grants were awarded on a cost-share basis, she said. “Upgrading to a variablespeed pump motor is one of the quickest and most effective ways to improve energy efficiency on irrigation systems,” Paige said. “If you run three sprinklers one day, and one sprinkler the next, you don’t need as much water pressure. So, if the pump is going full speed all the time, it’s wasting energy.” Installing variable-speed motors on irrigation pumps is a benefit because it saves energy, saves water and saves the growers money on their electric bills and pump repairs, Paige said. Conserving energy and water with better soil moisture monitoring and more efficient irrigation equipment also benefits fish and wildlife habitat by leaving more water in streams and lowering demand for electric generation, she said.

Worth it Continued from G1

Worth it: gray water Gray water is the waste generated from faucets, showers and laundry machines — water that accounts for 54.2 percent of all water used inside a home, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. With California deep into a drought, in August 2008, I retrofitted the plumbing on my laundry machine to send its gray water onto my landscape. Over the last two years, that simple switch has sent 9,720 gallons to passion fruit vines instead of the sewer, and it required only one change to my usual routine. I had to swap laundry detergents because my usual brand, like many, contained salt and other ingredients that kill plants. I’ve been so pleased with this low-cost, high-impact system that I hired a plumber to expand it in January, tying the wastewater from my bathtub, shower and bathroom sink into the same gravity-fed plumbing line that handles my laundry water. (Oregon legalized replumbing houses to capture “gray water” for irrigation in 2009.) I estimate my additional savings to be roughly 1,120 gallons per month. Financially, this system is paying for itself, just slowly. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power charges me less than half a penny per gallon, so technically, gray water has saved me only $95 in water costs so far. But it’s also reduced my sewer charge by about one-third, saving me an extra $3.30 per month. In drought-prone Southern California, gray water feels like the right thing to do. It’s been the easiest, most sensible, hasslefree, sustainable system I’ve put in place at my house. Cost: $1,988 ($312 for the laundry-to-landscape plumbing, $1,676 for bathtub and bathroom sink tie-in)

Worth it: solar power Photovoltaic systems pay off most quickly for consumers who use a lot of energy because tiered rates impose a penalty for heavy use, but solar electric still makes sense for low-energy users like me. So much of Americans’ carbon footprint results from buildings — about 43 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. I’m a household of 1½ (mom and 7-year-old), and we use only about 4 kilowatt hours of electricity per day, something we’ve managed through behavioral changes, such as turning off the lights in rooms after we’ve exited, and through in-home efficiencies, such as swapping out incandescent light bulbs for compact fluorescents and using power strips that can turn off DVD players, coffee makers and other energy vampires. Using less electricity means I can get by with a smaller, less expensive photovoltaic system that not only covers my use but also produces a credit on my power bill. Going solar also meant my house was upgraded with a timeof-use meter. This type of meter allows me to receive credit for the electricity I generate during peak hours when electricity costs the most, but pay the least for the electricity during off-peak hours, when I recharge my cell phone and laptop and perform other tasks requiring power. The downsides are that I am tied in to the grid and still susceptible to power outages, and I now have panels that need to be cleaned. It’s a subject of debate, but my installer, REC Solar, said dirty panels decrease energy production by 6 percent to 8 percent. Many panel manufacturers recommend cleaning panels at least once during the summer. I wash mine whenever

I think $6,000 is a small price to pay, not only for panels that should generate my next 20 years of electricity, but also for the greenhouse gases I’m not creating. Cost: $5,939 ($11,564, minus a $3,898 DWP rebate and a $1,727 federal tax credit)

Worth it: rain barrels I was a rain barrel skeptic before I joined LA’s rainwater harvesting pilot program last fall and received a 55-gallon pickle barrel. Though rainwater holds such enormous potential for supplementing Southern California’s dwindling reserves of imported water, rain barrels seem like such thimbles. During a normal LA winter, my 1,500square-foot roof generates 13,500 gallons of water — a tidal wave compared to what a little barrel can handle. Having lived with rain barrels for a year, I’ve learned that their small size makes them manageable and affordable. The water they catch isn’t stored only for summer use. It can be drained in between rains to water nearby plants. An added perk: reducing storm-water runoff to the ocean. I have three rain barrels — one from the city and two that I purchased separately. They’re along the edge of my house, at the halfway point in a row of kiwi vines and berries. The 175 gallons they hold were a lot more useful than I’d expected for feeding my exceptionally thirsty fruit plants. The water they held lasted about a month into the summer. I never had mosquitoes. I did, however, have some algae growing in the plastic tubes connecting my rain barrels, but it wasn’t significant enough to reduce flow. Water pressure was problematic only for the last few gallons of each barrel. I still think larger rain catchment systems are preferable. Alas, larger systems frequently need electric pumps and are far more expensive. In this economy, affordability rules. And it’s affordability that could lead to mainstream adoption and significant water savings for our parched city. Cost: $500 ($300 for rain barrels, $200 for installation and parts)

When raising chickens for eggs, bear in mind that they make a mess. Keep them outdoors. One rain barrel catches just a bit of the 13,500 gallons of rainwater that fall on a 1,500square-foot roof during an average Los Angeles winter. Rain barrels are a low-cost start to storing rainwater. rainy season, this infiltration pit can hold as many as 500 gallons at a time, allowing it to gradually replenish groundwater. During the dry season, it’s been doing double duty as a skateboard pit. Cost: Not easy to determine because it was part of a larger landscape project, but for DIYers, potentially free.

Not worth it: Waterwall The Waterwall is an Australian product that is exactly what its name implies: It’s a wall that catches and stores water. Water channeled from the roof and gutter drains into a tank shaped like a thick concrete-block wall. It operates similarly to a rain barrel but holds six times as much water and is better looking. It’s also modular, allowing water to flow freely from one wall into another in series. The Waterwall was expensive, and installation was a nightmare. It’s an excellent idea that simply wasn’t worth the money for a person of my means. If California’s drought persists and

Water is a precious resource, and we flush an awful lot if it away. At my house, my low-flow toilet uses 1.6 gallons per flush. If it’s flushed 10 times a day, that’s 16 gallons of imported drinking water that’s pooh-poohed and sent 23 miles to a wastewater treatment plant that uses precious electricity to process it, then has to dispose of leftovers. The final frontier of green living, the composting toilet is a low-tech option. There are a surprising number of commercial

Not worth it: chickens This is one of the projects I was most excited about and one that’s turned out to be among my biggest failures. After buying a chicken coop, feed and hens procured through LA Animal Services, I got only four eggs. LA may be a sprawling metropolis, but it isn’t devoid of wild animals. Some people have coyotes. I’ve got possums and raccoons, which breached my coop and gobbled down my ladies. A forensic investigation revealed the intruder had dug under its edges, so I fixed the problem by driving stakes deep into the ground and nailing pieces of wood to other possible areas of entry. I’ve been buying eggs at the store ever since, but I was hipped to my local egg underground. Last week, I got my first dozen eggs from a neighbor who’s more game than I for the challenge of raising chickens. Cost: $530 for coop, feed and chickens If I had to do it over again: I would skip the coop and find a local alternative.

Rainwater isn’t only a resource. It’s also a potential pollutant if it runs off property onto pavement, picking up fertilizers and automotive fluids that are washed, unfiltered, into the ocean. To prevent my home’s contributions to runoff, which could be as much as 10,000 gallons per year, according to LA’s Bureau of Sanitation, I’ve sculpted my landscape to retain as much rainwater as possible. The parkway between the sidewalk and the curb is concave and mulched. My backyard is home to a 15-foot-wide hole in the ground that is fed with gutters from my roof. During the

Not worth it: edible landscaping

Not worth it: composting toilet

composting toilets on the market that look nice, cost a fortune and can’t handle heavy use, which is why I went with something called a Separett. Developed in Sweden, it’s a piece of plastic foam that looks like a toilet seat except it’s outfitted with two holes — yes, No. 1 and No. 2. Each empties into its own 5-gallon bucket I access through a trap door on the side of my house. As committed as I am to living green, I must admit I use this system rarely, and only for No. 1. As much as I support the premise of a composting toilet, I’m more devoted to the traditional porcelain god. I just try to flush less. Cost: $627 ($127 for Separett, $500 for construction labor and materials to convert built-in cabinet to toilet) If I had to do it over again: I might need more clearance under my house, but I’d go with a commercial composting toilet from Clivus Multrum.

water prices start going through the roof, I’m likely to change my attitude. But so far, the $4,078 I’ve spent to store 634 gallons of water I could have bought from the city for about $3 is an embarrassment, particularly with so many ways to conserve. Even worse, it’s been annoying to use. I put my Waterwall near a trio of stone-fruit trees that would happily drink in the water. Unfortunately, the water pressure drops along with the level of water in the wall, and running the water through a relatively short, 15-foot length of hose or even lifting the hose above the spigot decreases its flow rate. I love the Waterwall in theory, and I still think I would’ve ringed my backyard with Waterwalls if I’d known about them 10 years ago, when I installed an appallingly expensive redwood fence. Cost: $4,078 ($2,300 for two walls, plus $944 for shipping and taxes, plus $834 for installation) If I had to do it over again: I’d go with a cistern or a large, agricultural above-ground tank.

can infrastructure was about to crumble and that I should start growing my own food. Thus began an incredibly long, expensive and back-breaking journey. Not only did I have soil that was high in lead, but I also had critters that liked to dig and destroy. Then there’s the water issue. It takes a lot of the wet stuff to grow most fruit and vegetables. Having transitioned my lowwater ornamental landscape to edibles, I’d say this is a project for people with time, money and a love of gardening and cooking. It isn’t a job for single mothers with high-stress jobs who’d rather not spend their precious down time watering, pulling weeds and bringing in their harvest. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I won’t likely learn as much as I should to maximize my yields. At this point, I’m just hoping this whole project won’t end up being a high-cost intellectual exercise that bears little fruit. Passion fruit and tomatoes have had the biggest payoff so far. Beans, corn and kale? Not so much. It’s so easy to get high-quality produce from a CSA, or community supported agriculture group, which is what I’ve been doing for the last year: spending $18 a week for organic, locally grown produce. Cost: outrageous If I had to do it over again: I would install one or two planter boxes. I’d buy the rest of my produce from a community-supported agriculture group.

S D  Good info to know about fuel injection By Brad Bergholdt McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Q:

Can you explain how fuel injection works? I’ve been hearing about new ways this is done and realized I didn’t understand the current kind. I grew up with carburetors and tinkered with them occasionally. Is there still any tinkering to be done? Typical recent vehicles employ electronic multiport sequential fuel injection— what a mouthful! This means the fuel injection process is electronically controlled — a managing computer obtains engine operating information, processes the information, and electrically commands each fuel injector to squirt the desired quantity of fuel at precisely the right time. Multiport refers to there being an individual fuel injector for each cylinder’s intake manifold port. Sequential firing of the fuel injectors means each shot of fuel is timed to exactly match the in-rush of air as each intake valve opens. Earlier fuel injection systems varied widely in the method (mechanical/hydraulic/electronic) and location (throttle body or intake port) fuel was squirted. An electric fuel pump, either in or near the fuel tank, provides a constant flow of fuel to the system components atop the engine, and a pressure regulator, or clever operation of the pump, results in the desired pressure being available to the fuel injectors. Modern fuel injection sys-

The GM Volt goes into production in November. The Volt is capable of traveling 25 to 50 miles on electric power alone.

Overall, Chevrolet’s Volt is an impressive electric ride By Susan Carpenter Los Angeles Times

With most cars, idling at the arrival curb of a major metropolitan airport results in an instantaneous visit from the parking police: Whistles blown, arms akimbo, ticket pads drawn. But the new 2011 Chevy Volt isn’t most cars. As I picked up the vehicle R E V I E W at Oakland International Airport, dozens of strangers slowed their wheeled luggage to get a look at a car that’s received as much attention as an A-list celebrity. And those DayGlo-vested police who normally strike fear in idling drivers’ hearts? They were, for the first time I’ve ever experienced, friendly and inquisitive — and seemingly ready to ditch their day jobs to hop in for the ride to LA. Having driven the car for a day, I wouldn’t have blamed them. With its Volt, General Motors Co. zaps popular preconceptions that it’s incapable of making a progressive, outside-the-box vehicle. The exterior is understated and attractive, and the interior is sleekly high-tech without being overkill. Accessible in both its design and operation, there’s a normalcy to the Volt that belies what’s under the hood. Going into production next month, the Volt will be the world’s first mass-produced plug-in electric with a range-extending gas engine. Chevy calls it an extended-range electric, although the automaker, which only recently cleared the patent on the Volt’s drivetrain, explained last week that it’s actually a hybrid that uses a gas engine coupled with two electric motors. Nomenclature aside, the Volt is one of the most highly anticipated cars of the year. Capable of traveling 25 to 50 miles on electric

2011 Chevrolet Volt Base price: $41,000 (applying the $7,500 federal tax credit reduces the price to $33,500) As tested: $42,395 Type: Plug-in electric hybrid compact car. Engine: 111-kilowatt drive motor with 54-kilowatt generator motor, 16kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, 1.4-liter DOHC inline four, four valves per cylinder, sequential port fuel injection. Mileage: Not yet available from EPA. As tested, 39 miles per gallon averaged over a 400-mile trip, mostly highway driving. power with its 16-kilowatt lithium-ion battery pack and 111-kilowatt electric drive unit, the Volt can drive an additional 310 miles with a 1.4-liter internal combustion engine that juices its electric generator and drive motors. The Volt turns on with the press of a button, and the only indicators that it’s running are a computer-generated whooshing sound and the rush of green-andblue graphics that assemble themselves into a liquid-crystal display beyond the steering wheel. The motor is silent. On takeoff, my display indicated I had 18 miles of electric battery power (since the man from GM who so kindly came with the car had used up the rest on his drive from San Francisco). I could travel an additional 244 miles with the premium gas in the tank. High-octane is required. A green sphere floated in a column on the right-hand side of the LCD screen, floating up and turning yellow if I accelerated aggressively, and floating down and turning yellow if I did the same with braking. The goal is to keep the green globe balanced in the center, indicating the driver is handling the car most fuel-efficiently. After traveling 11 miles, my dash indicated I had seven miles of range left in pure electric mode. I was impressed by the Volt’s ability to predict because

exactly seven miles later, when the car had about 30 percent of its battery life left to spare, the car did, exactly as it was designed, switch over to gas mode. Instead of the batteries propelling its drive motor, it was the car’s 1.4liter engine propelling a 54-kilowatt generator motor propelling the drive motor. The only discernible difference to me in switching over to gaspowered electricity as a driver was an extremely low-level purr from the generator. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is still wrestling with how to accurately quantify the emissions of electric vehicles, and it hasn’t yet released official mpg figures for the Volt. Checking the car’s second LCD screen in the center console after traveling 72.5 miles — 40.8 in electric mode and 31.7 with gas — my mpg equivalent was an impressive 90.3, despite my test of the Volt’s top speed. How clean those miles are in electric mode depends on the electricity source. I attempted to top off my battery’s charge by plugging into the 120-volt wall charger of a burger joint for half an hour over lunch — the effect of which was so minimal it didn’t even register on the display when I turned the car back on. I also topped off the gas, adding 4.1 gallons to the car’s 9.3gallon tank. Overall, I traveled 400 miles, averaging 39 mpg for

the trip, which consisted mostly of highway driving. Fuel-economy varies depending on how the Volt is driven, of course. To that end, the car has several options. There are three drive modes to choose between — normal, which feels pretty sluggish on the accelerator; sport, which is a lot more responsive (though more energy consuming); and mountain, for hilly terrain. The Volt is more spacious than I was expecting for a compact, though it seats only four. The rear seat on this five-door hatchback is divided into two buckets to accommodate a T-shaped battery pack that extends along the bottom of the car from the center console and under the rear seats.

tems are incredibly accurate and reliable. Problems with dirty fuel injectors are now rare thanks to improved injector design and mandated fuel additives. Also, feedback from the system’s exhaust oxygen sensors allows almost instantaneous air-fuel ratio correction, should minor faults arise. Some newer vehicles now use direct cylinder fuel injection. This is a tricky but highly rewarding method of extracting greater engine performance. Extremely high fuel pressure is needed to squirt fuel into the combustion chamber, and the fuel injectors live in a very harsh environment. I’m hopeful this method can prove to be as reliable as it is efficient. Tinkering with a fuel injection system is possible, via aftermarket reprogramming and component swaps, but isn’t viable or legal for a daily driven, emissionsregulated vehicle.

Q

Reynolds, 34— whose new film, Buried, has a serious fear factor—says Oct. 31 was more like the Fourth of July for Reynolds: Explosive him and his family. Halloweens “Where I grew up in Vancouver, we had a kind of bottle-rocket festival in the park,” he explains. “Everybody would be shooting them into the air—but by the end of the night, we’d be aiming at each other. So it wasn’t the safest place to be running around.” As for costumes, he reveals, “I’d always dress up as somebody who was dead, like Elvis.” Next year, look for Reynolds’ superhero character in Green Lantern to be a Halloween fave. “It’s made me a hero with all my nieces and nephews,” he says.

I’m a fan of director Zack Snyder, who got his start on the remake of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead. Does he like to scare people in real life?— Norman Lewis, Los Angeles, Calif.

“I have some leftover Dawn of the Dead masks that I sometimes throw on,” admits Snyder, 44, who’s been tapped to direct the next Superman. “Halloween’s pretty intense at our house. One year, we did the French Revolution. My son was Napoleon, and I dressed my daughters like Marie Antoinette. Then I put everybody in a hay cart and wheeled them around.”

Q

I love the paranormal shows on TV. Do any of the experts have tips for confronting Halloween spooks?—Ann Alf, Chicago, Ill.

A

“If you meet up with a legitimate ghost, don’t be afraid,” says Michelle Belanger, 37, of A&E’s Paranormal State. “Don’t show fear to the living or the dead—that’s the best protection.” Not surprisingly, she always looks forward to Oct. 31. “I can be who I want without getting stared at,” she says.

America’s Favorite Show Choir After our Oct. 3 cover story on a real-life glee club in Illinois, PARADE launched a nationwide search for America’s Favorite Show Choir. More than 50,000 votes later, we have the results. Congratulations, Touch of Class from Chantilly High in Virginia!

Chantilly High’s Touch of Class

2 • October 31, 2010

“Being selected from among these great choirs is a huge honor,” Touch of Class director Glenn Cockrell says. “We have always considered what we do unique and special.” Also singing Chantilly’s praises are Glee stars Chris Colfer and Amber Riley, who are delighted to see reallife show choirs have their moment oment in the spotlight. “It’s an honor to know now that kids look up to Glee,” ,” Riley says. And Colfer is equally qually thrilled: “When I was in school it wasn’t ‘cool’ to be in the performing arts,” s,” he says. “But if it weren’t n’t for performing,, I would have gone insane.” Read more from the Glee Amber Riley folks, plus and Chris watch Touch off Colfer Class in action at Parade.com/glee. ee.

Parsons has joined the all-star list of celebrity visitors to Sesame Street. He just announced the word of the day. “It was ‘arachnid,’ Parsons: Along which means spider,” he came a spider says—ideal for Halloween. “I had to practice, because it’s easy to get tongue-tied. It reminded me of some of the more unfamiliar terms I’ve had to learn for Big Bang. As for real spiders, I’m not terribly afraid of them. I have a lot in my house, but I try not to kill them. I just shuffle them outside with a piece of paper.” Parsons, 37, adds that joining Elmo and Big Bird was almost as exciting as prime time. “I considered retiring after my segment on Sesame Street,” he jokes.

Q

I heard Criss Angel has a magic kit out. Does it reveal the secrets to any of his famous illusions? —Allie Kimi, New York, N.Y.

A

Angel: Magic builds selfconfidence

Angel, 42, isn’t guaranteeing that kids who buy the kit will be able to duplicate what he presents in his Vegas Mindfreak show, but he does let them in on at least oone trick. “I reveal the secret to levitation,” he says. “Kids “ will have their parents swearing they saw them go up in the air anytime, anywhere— with no props. Doing magic boosts your self-esteem. That’s Th what it did for me when I was going through a difficult time in grade school.” Angel has no n plans to don an elaborate costume for Halloween, Ha he says. “I just like to remember Harry Ha Houdini, who was the greatest magician of all time.” Have a question q for Walter Scott?

Scream for

Betty White America’s Favorite 88-Year-Old Still Has a Few Tricks Up Her Sleeve by Robert Moritz

L

I K E K I D S W I T H CA N DY O N

H Halloween, Americans can’t get enough of Betty White. After more than 200 TV and movie appearances over six decades (including her latest, the TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland ), she’s one of the best-known faces around. But she still has a few secrets to reveal: Betty will not be your Friend.

At least not on Facebook. After over half a million Facebook users became fans of the “Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!” page—resulting in her May 8 Saturday Night Live hosting gig— you’d think she would be the social network’s biggest booster. But White’s monologue chiding Facebook—she said it “sounds like a huge waste of time”—wasn’t just shtick. The self-described “technological spaz” is leery of the Internet, especially of the way it can spread baseless rumors. Exhibit A: That she’s going to play the Almighty in a remake of Oh, God! “Absolutely false! Forget it! No way!” she says. She’s no cougar.

White may lust after Robert Redford (who is 14 years her junior), but she insists, “I’ve always liked older men. They’re just more attractive to me. Of course, at my age there aren’t that many left!” Apparently, that hasn’t presented much of an obstacle. “I’ve enjoyed the opposite sex a lot,” says White, whose beloved husband of 18 years, Allen Ludden, died in 1981. “Always have. Always will.”

She was 90210 before there even was a 90210.

The Chicago-born White moved to Beverly Hills when she was a year-and-a-half. “I don’t think California was even a state yet,” she jokes. “I’m pretty sure it was still a territory.” She’s a stair master…

Every weekday, White gets up at 6, feeds her dog, showers, works on a book, heads to the set (whether TV, movie, or commercial) for a day of shooting, comes home, plays with her dog, does a crossword puzzle, writes some more, and goes to bed at 1:30 a.m. (It tires us out just writing this.) How does she stay in shape? “I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time,” she says. “That’s my exercise.” …But she likes her junk food, too.

A devoted meat-and-potatoes gal, White eats fries every night (along with a salad or vegetable) and has a hot dog named after her at the legendary Pink’s in Los Angeles (“It’s called ‘Betty “Naked in the City” Hot Dog’…because I don’t put anything on it”). On the set of Hot in Cleveland, her co-star Wendie Malick says, “Betty has a complete thing for Red Vines licorice, the most disgusting candy I ever tasted—with a color that’s not found in nature. But you look at her and think, How does she do it? Maybe that’s her secret.” What does White credit her good health to? “Good genes, I guess. My dad died when he was 83 and my mom died at 85. They were active right up until the very end.” continued October 31, 2010 • 5

Some of Betty’s Greatest Hits

Her parents passed down their comic timing—and puppy love.

“They had delicious senses of humor,” White recalls. Her father was a traveling salesman who would bring home jokes from the road. He and her mother were also animal people. “They would come back from a walk with a dog, saying, ‘Betty, he followed us home. Can we keep him?’ My parents had a cat named Toby who liked to sit on my crib. My mom always said that if Toby hadn’t approved of the baby, she’d have gone straight back to the hospital.”

The Proposal, 2009

made her an honorary doctor of humane veterinary sciences. “You see her on TV, but what surprised me was how brilliant she was. She tracks issues as well as anyone,” says Dr. Patricia Olson, Morris Animal Foundation president and CEO. Nobody drives Miss Betty.

Ask White if she still drives and she replies, “Of course!” She owns a silver Cadillac nicknamed Seagull. “I love Cadillacs and name them after birds.” Her previous ride, the pale-yellow Canary, was preceded by the green Parakeet.

She loves her Pontiac.

When White was offered the part of Ryan Reynolds’ grandmother in 2009’s The Proposal, she turned it down because the shoot would have required several weeks away from Pontiac, her beloved golden retriever. She signed on only after the producers tightened the schedule. White, who has three stepchildren, has always loved animals. She’s chairwoman of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association and has volunteered for 40 years with the Morris Animal Foundation, a Denver-based group whose efforts have led to advances in the health and welfare of animals worldwide. You can call her DOCTOR White.

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, 2010

And following in the footsteps of Sienna Miller and the Olsen twins, White has recently unveiled a line of T-shirts and sweatshirts. “I wanted them to feature dogs and cats, but the designers insisted on putting my face on the front,” she says in mock astonishment. A portion of the money from the calendar and from the Betty White Collection will benefit the Morris Animal Foundation. She believes everyone should have the right to say “I do.”

White’s status as a gay icon dates to the mid-80’s popularity of The Golden Girls. “Gays love old ladies,” she says of the phenomenon, which saw fans from West Hollywood to New York City turn on their TVs between 9 and 9:30 on Saturday nights to watch the exploits of Rose & Co. “I don’t care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time—and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones—I think it’s fine if they want to get married. I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.” She plays to win…

Once a month or so, White and “family”—pals like Frasier’s Millicent Martin (who played Jane

Leeves’ mother) and Password creator Bob Stewart—get together for poker night. “It’s a heavy game,” White says. “You can lose as much as five dollars!” When she was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2009 and again in May, Fallon challenged her to beer pong. “I explained that you try to throw ping-pong balls into the other person’s beer cup,” he said. “If you get the ball in, your opponent drinks. She said, ‘I’m in!’ ” and nailed her first toss. “Betty plays the cute factor,” Fallon says, “then goes for the jugular.” He rallied—“I wasn’t going down without a fight”—and eventually won. …But she can take a hit.

If you didn’t see this year’s Snickers Super Bowl commercial— where White and Abe Vigoda get slammed in a football game— consider this: Golden Girls writer Marc Cherry (who went on to create Desperate Housewives) recalls that on his first day on the job, his writing partner jokingly threw a piece of bologna at him in the cafeteria. “I ducked, and Betty happened to be behind me,” he remembers. “It hit her in the face. Without missing a beat, she peeled it off, shook it at us, and said, ‘Don’t you know I’m a star? I’m a goddamn star!’ and then she laughed. That’s the thing about Betty—she gets the joke.”

15 Minutes to a

Perfect Jack-o’-Lantern

America’s Most

Haunted

Step 1 Using a small serrated knife, carve a 6-inch circle around the stem to create a lid. Scoop out the pulp. Print a stencil of this design (at Parade.com/halloween) and tape to the pumpkin’s exterior.

Step 2 Take a sharp pin and prick holes along the lines of the stencil. Remove stencil. Cut out pumpkin pieces with the same knife by following the pattern made by the holes. To protect yourself, use a gentle sawing motion; don’t pull the knife in and out.

Step 3 Cut pumpkin scraps into two triangular ears. Attach with toothpicks. Meow!

Wait—Don’t Throw Out the Seeds! W Once your pumpkin’s fit to be lit, turn its seeds into a snack. Spread 1 cup rinsed seeds on an oiled baking sheet; dry in a 300°F oven for 30 minutes. Take out and toss with 2 Tbsp melted butter and seasonings (for sweet: 1½ Tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg; for savory: 1/2 tsp coarse salt, 1½ Tbsp grated Parmesan, and a pinch of black pepper). Roast at 375°F for 7 minutes and you’re done!

Myrtles Plantation, St. Francisville, La. More than a dozen ghosts are thought to linger here, the most famous being Chloe, who was hanged after poisoning her slave owners. Another ghoul has been heard staggering up the stairs, and a mirror is said to contain the spirits of a woman and her children, who occasionally leave handprints on the glass. The Villisca Axe Murders House, Villisca, Iowa Tours of this home—where an unknown axe murderer killed two adults and six children in 1912—have been cut short by lamps falling, a closet door opening and shutting, and the sound of children’s voices. Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colo. Staff at the 1909 hotel—which inspired Stephen King’s novel The Shining but is not where the 1980 movie was filmed— have heard parties in an empty ballroom and music from an untouched piano. Ghost hunters also report seeing a table jump two feet in the air. The Lizzie Borden House, Fall River, Mass. On Aug. 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden were hacked to death with a hatchet. Andrew’s daughter Lizzie was the prime suspect, but she was tried and acquitted. Visitors to their home, now a B & B, report hearing a woman weeping in the night and seeing shoes slide across the floor. To read about other old haunts, go to Parade.com /halloween.

“The guys get that white suit on and they think they really are John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.” —Terry Frankel, Frankel’s Costumes, Houston, Tex.

Who Do You Want to Be? Kids have been trick-ortreating for generations; it was only in the late ’70s and early ’80s that adults started to get in on the fun. “Early on, the costumes were really generic—things like pirates, clowns, French maids,” says Howard Beige, whose family has owned Rubie’s Costume Co. in Queens, N.Y., for nearly six decades. This year’s most popular pick? “By far, it’s Lady Gaga,” he says. The times, they are a-changin’.

Lessons From The Great Pumpkin GREW UP READING PEANUTS EVERY

I

day in the funny pages of the Omaha World-Herald. Out of all the cartoons, it was the one that spoke to me the most. Unlike Doonesbury, Wizard of Id, and Beetle Bailey—which were abstruse and satirical, intentionally going over my head—Peanuts was populated with children (albeit children endowed with the speech patterns and often the world-weariness of grown-ups), and adults were nowhere to be seen. Besides its young cast of characters, the comic strip—which this month celebrates its 60th birthday—had a timeless and philosophical appeal: Charles M. Schulz was commenting not so much on the times we were living in but on the human condition at large. “How can I cure this loneliness?” Charlie Brown asked on one of his visits to Lucy’s “The Doctor Is In” advice booth. “Get some friends,” she said. Even an 8-year-old could relate. Following the 2007 publication of David Michaelis’ biography, Schulz and Peanuts, the artist lost a degree of luster in the minds of some Americans. The late cartoonist was portrayed as gloomy and self-absorbed, jarring traits for the creator of such sweetly memorable lines as “Happiness is a warm puppy.” What people failed to

realize is that it was exactly those aspects that gave us his delightfully frank, slightly cynical body of work, including the vision of Halloween created in the Great Pumpkin. Linus’ first letter to that deity debuted in Peanuts in 1959. But it wasn’t until seven years later that it achieved a permanent place in popular culture with the airing of the TV special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. In the half-hour

‘I felt for Linus, who held to his belief in the Mighty Orange One even in the face of doubt.’ t.’’ tale, as so many of us know, Linus tells ls the the gang ga about a giant Santa Claus–like pumpkin who descends from on high every Halloween bearing toys. In response, Linus is ridiculed and rejected by almost all his friends. Accompanied by Sally, his sole supporter, he sits in a pumpkin patch to wait for the Mighty Orange One to arrive. Eventually, after he mistakes Snoopy’s shadow for the mythical squash and passes out with excitement, the stalwart Sally abandons him.

Linus, though, remains in the patch until his sister Lucy carries him home. As a child, I felt for Linus, whose faith in something unprovable was stingily rewarded, if at all, with the knowledge that he’d maintained his belief in the face of ever-increasing doubt. “If the Great Pumpkin comes, I’ll still put in a good word for you,” he calls out to Sally as she leaves him. “Good grief, I said, ‘If.’ I meant ‘When he comes,’ ” Linus wails. “I’m doomed. One little slip like that can cause the Great Pumpkin to pass you by. Oh, Great Pumpkin, where are you?” John Waters, the director behind such bizarro films as Cry-Baby, Hairspray, and Serial Mom, also grew up on a diet of Peanuts. As a kid in Baltimore, he was particularly fond of the Great Pumpkin TV special. “I always identified with Linus,” he says. “He was not one bit embarrassed by what the others saw as foolishness. It gave me faith as a kid—faith to believe in strange things.” Still, the lessons learned from the Great Pumpkin depend on the viewer: The story can also be seen as an allegory of the irrationality of belief or as a satire of religion. “On some level,” Michaelis says, “Schulz was showing us how some people would so much rather live with this craziness of false belief instead of just being quiet and resolute in their faith. He was saying, ‘Be careful what you believe.’ ” The Peanuts TV specials, which include the classic A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, had the cachet of airing during the prime-time hours reserved for grownup fare. Maybe that’s because the programs— unlike, say, the gooey-sweet animated tales of Frosty or Rudolph—were sophisticated, even

subversive. The true genius of the Great Pumpkin may be the way it sends up other holiday parables by having a character seek a deeper meaning in the sole holiday that has no real lesson to teach. Is there any other day we celebrate that is as empty of moral or historical significance? Halloween exists today simply so that kids can dress up, run around after dark, eat too much candy, and scare the pants off one another. Until Schulz retired the Peanuts strip in 2000, Linus waited for the Great Pumpkin year after year, and right through that final Halloween his vigil was fruitless. Rather than being cruel, Schulz might have actually been paying tribute to the gleeful earnestness of Halloween, and of childhood itself. On my neighbor’s doorstep last Oct. 31, there was a sign that said, “If you are a Yankees fan, you may have two pieces of candy.” Alec, my 5-year-old, read it aloud for his sister, who was almost 2. The Yankees, whose stadium is minutes from our home, were competing in the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies. The kicker came at the bottom of the sign: “If you are a Phillies fan, you may have three pieces of candy.” “Oh, man! I don’t get anything!” Alec said in despair as he realized that he had recently and arbitrarily named the Mets his favorite baseball team. His childish sense of propriety wouldn’t permit him to abandon his loyalties for the sake of convenience or candy, so he led his sister to the next house. On the sidewalk, where my wife and I stood and watched, we wanted to stop time forever. Visit us at PARADE.COM

Premium sound h a s n e v e r b e e n e a s i e r.

The Bose® Wave® music system.

Selecting a sound system traditionally has required a difficult compromise. With conventional systems, if you make premium sound your priority, you have to deal with large speakers, stacks of equipment and plenty of wires to hook them up. Opt for small size and simplicity, and you sacrifice the sound. Meet the Bose Wave® music system. It delivers all the pleasures of premium sound from a compact system without the traditional compromises or limitations. Rich Warren of the News-Gazette says it “will flat out seduce you.” And Forbes FYI reports that “you’ll think you’re listening to a…sound system that costs five times more.” Easy to enjoy. The Wave® music system provides a room full of Bose quality sound from an all-in-one system that requires little space and is delightfully simple to use. There are no wires to hook up, no confusing buttons or dials to adjust. Just plug it in and hear the kind of sound that you may have only thought possible from a much larger system. In fact, David Novak, the Gadget Guy, says, “It can easily replace whatever component system you currently have.” Easy to use. A credit card-style remote lets you operate everything – a convenience you’ll appreciate when playing

CDs or MP3 CDs, tuning into FM/AM radio or setting the clock and alarm. You can connect an additional audio source, so enjoying lifelike sound from your TV or MP3 player couldn’t be simpler. You also can add an optional Multi-CD Changer to enjoy your favorite music for hours. And with its small and elegant design, the Wave® music system fits in just about anywhere: your living room, kitchen, bedroom, wherever you want better sound. Easy to try. Use our 30-day, risk-free trial to experience the Wave® music system in your home. Listen to your favorite music, try it in different rooms and hear what you’ve been missing. Easy to order.
