A three-month feud over the future location of Bend’s DMV that saw everything from protests to boycotts, and even a lawsuit, has ended.

The Oregon Department of Transportation announced Wednesday the DMV will terminate its lease at the Brookswood Meadow Plaza in southwest Bend and will renew its efforts to find a new location. While it’s un-

clear how long it will take to find a permanent home, officials said the timeline might be stretched because the selection process will now allow for public input. “For us, this means we’ll start the search again, and we’ll pretty

In Redmond, ‘hero’ dog saves the life of another Pit bull mix nobody seems to want comes across what might be a lost old friend By Megan Kehoe The Bulletin

Alan Borland, a volunteer with the Humane Society of Redmond, couldn’t get Nala to quit pulling on her leash Monday morning. It was odd, Borland noted, as he’d never before had problems walking Nala, a pit bull mix. “She looked very alert and kept looking off to the south,” said Borland, 55. “I tried calling her, but she just kept pulling towards the ditch.” Giving in to her demands, Borland allowed the dog to lead him to a ditch about 200 yards from the Humane Society’s location on Hemlock Avenue. To Borland’s surprise, there was a small black and white ball of fur curled up at the bottom of the ditch. “I thought he was dead at first,” Borland said of the collapsed and blind cocker spaniel in the snow. “He had ice balls on his feet, and he was really filthy-looking.” Borland pulled Nala away and rushed inside to get help for the cocker spaniel, who appeared to be clinging to life. Once the cocker spaniel was brought inside, shelter staffers determined the dog had been a shelter resident that was adopted a month earlier. “It was quite a surprise,” said shelter manager Chris Bauersfeld. “He was found 200 yards away from the shelter. Through all his wanderings, he must have heard the shelter dogs barking and recognized the place.” The dog, named Chadwick, is 10. He lost his sight to old age and was adopted in November.

Sarah Huang, of Kenosha, Wis., won the first race of the day Wednesday, the nonchampionship women’s race, as part of the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships near the Old Mill. The racing started an hour late because of icy riding conditions. ost cyclocross racers have a twisted view of weather. The nastier the better, they say. Sideways rain or blowing snow? No problem. Mud-encrusted bikes and bodies? Well, that’s just epic. “Yeah, people like to get muddy,” said Brad Ross, race director for the 2010 USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships, which run through Sunday in Bend’s Old Mill District. “The way I look at it is, when you were 8, you liked to play in mud puddles. At some point, your parents told you not to. Now you’re an adult and you still want to go get muddy — that’s cyclocross for you.” If mud is what cyclocross is all about,

what about racing in Bend in December, when conditions are more likely to be frozen and snowy than wet and muddy? Last year at the Cyclocross Nationals in Bend, the below-zero temperatures of a late-autumn cold snap bothered some racers, and event organizers used a snowblower to get rid of some 8 inches of powder that fell on the course. This week, it appears temperatures in the mid- to high 40s might make for some muddy, slushy racing conditions as the snow already on the ground melts — and more snow and rain are in the forecast, too. That seems to be just fine with race organizers and competitors. See Cyclocross / A5

What is cyclocross? A form of bike racing staged during the fall and winter, cyclocross consists of multiple laps on a short course that typically includes pavement, grass, dirt, mud — and sometimes snow. Most races features steep hills, stairs and wooden barriers that competitors must clear by carrying their bikes.

The new dropouts: moms PTA burnout hits frazzled parents By Hilary Stout

Technology Consumer Environment Education Science

HIGH SCHOOLS

Federal aid up; so are grad rates

New York Times News Service

It was last spring, somewhere between overseeing Teacher Appreciation Week and planning the fifth-grade graduation party, when Jamie Lentzner, mother of two in Foster City, Calif., reached her breaking point. She had already designed the fifth-grade T-shirt, taught art twice monthly to three different classes, and organized movie night, restaurant night and beach night fundraisers. She was overscheduled and exhausted. She had scant time to help her children with their school projects because, coincidentally, she was always working on projects for their school. “You’ve got to stop,” said her husband, Darin, who worried the constant stress she seemed to feel was unhealthy. Lentzner realized she had spiraled out of control. She vowed to put an end to all this volunteering — and to recapture some of the serenity in her family life that had vanished because of nothing more than a well-intentioned desire to pitch in. Today, more than three months into the school year, Lentzner is a new woman. She has yet to attend a PTA meeting or decorate so much as a classroom doorknob. When she saw her name listed as chairwoman of the annual Donuts for Dads Day (another event she oversaw last year) on a volunteer sign-up sheet, she whipped out a Sharpie and crossed it out. “No, I’m not,” she wrote. Her business — she designs children’s room decor — improved, and at home, the change has been striking. She has time to play pingpong and Wii with the children. She hosted 27 relatives and friends for Thanksgiving, and for the first time in years she enjoyed the holiday. “I told my husband, ‘I am not stressed,’ ” she said. “I did not have some event hanging over my head, or a T-shirt design that had to be done. I think I finally have my priorities in the right place.” Around the country there are a number of altruistic, devoted and totally burned-out mothers just like Lentzner who are becoming emboldened to push back against the relentless requests from their children’s schools for their time. What started out as an admirable civic gesture somehow snowballed into an inability to say no to any committee assignment or project request, and spiraled into night, weekend and after-school commitments, middle-of-thenight e-mail exchanges, as well as frozen dinners, takeout pizza and baby sitters at home.

‘Just say NO’ Other forces are at work besides a lack of free time. The growing world of mom blogging has provided ample forums for exposing the darker feelings of motherhood, and a number of women have taken to cyberspace to gripe about school volunteer work. Some complain the system preys on maternal guilt and that it creates a sense that a mother’s worthiness is measured in how many hours she puts in at her children’s schools. Under the headline “Just Say NO to Volunteering,” Sarah Auerswald, a former PTA president in Los Angeles, wrote in June: “What I am about to say is not very PC, so get ready: Moms, stop volunteering so much.” Auerswald, who estimated she had sat through 1,000 meetings over the past 10 years as a volunteer, said all her work for the schools had left her “a run-down, crabby, resentful wreck.” Worse, she said in an interview, “My kids got really resentful.” When she would leave them with yet another baby sitter, or drag them along for yet another Saturday Cleanup Day at school, they implored, “Why is it always you who has to do everything, Mom?” Auerswald emphasized that her children’s school had a very real need for parents’ volunteer work. But she said she has learned that parents need to set realistic expectations about what they can accomplish and how much of themselves they can give. Because the work is unpaid, some volunteers say, few realize the toll it can take on people. “I

Across the country, parents — like Sarah Auerswald, above, with her children; Jamie Lentzner, left; and Karen Bantuveris, right — are pushing back against volunteering at schools after initial help turned into long-term commitments. “Just Say NO to Volunteering,” Auerswald, a former PTA president in Los Angeles, writes on her blog. “What I am about to say is not very PC, so get ready: Moms, stop volunteering so much.” New York Times News Service photos

When volunteering is mandatory With the holidays approaching, the call for parental help at school has reached a fever pitch, but this demand is not just seasonal. As local and state economies continue to struggle, budget cuts to rich and poor school systems are increasing the reliance on unpaid parent help. The need is so great that some school districts, like a couple of specialty schools in Virginia, have made it mandatory to commit to a small amount of volunteer time, and others are considering it. In San Jose, Calif., one elementary school district has been discussing a proposal that the families of its 13,000 students commit to 30 hours of volunteer work during the year. Moms and dads at work: “Volunteerism is way down at our school this year,” said Gary Parkes, the PTA president at Carmel Elementary School in Woodstock, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta. At the school’s recent annual fall festival some games had to be closed down because of a lack of adult volunteer supervisors. Economic necessity, he said, has forced some stay-at-home mothers to go back to work. “People are so busy trying to stay afloat, they just do not have as much time as they would like to give.” Getting creative: Parkes has reached out to the Cub Scouts to help with the fall festival and recruited the girls’ lacrosse team at the high school to operate the crazy-hair and face-painting stations. He is also exploring arrangements with the ROTC and with corporations that have public service programs. know a woman — the work she did for the public schools was so critical — she made me look like a loafer,” Auerswald said. “Then her husband left her because she was never home.” That news was startling to Auerswald. “Not that my husband was leaving, luckily,” she said, “but he was not happy about how much I was doing.”

Small labor pool Part of the burnout stems from the fact that in most schools a small number of volunteers shoulder the vast majority of the work. Everyone recognizes this, but they can’t help but wring every ounce of commitment out of those who seem willing. Consider the case of Zan Jones. Jones is a mother of two in Keller, Texas, who works parttime as a booking manager for professional speakers. This fall she was co-chairwoman of the Scholastic Book Fair, a commitment of five full days on top of the multiple meetings required to organize the event. And the decorating. This year’s theme was superheroes, so Jones made the sign with

Superman saying, “It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a book fair!” She made tall buildings out of cardboard boxes. She stuffed the SpiderMan costume she had found and bought herself. When it was over, she helped pack everything up and take the money to the bank. That’s a lot of work — especially since her children don’t go to the school anymore. Near the end of the summer, Jones’ children, a third-grader and a fifth-grader, were accepted to a charter school, but she felt uneasy about breaking volunteer commitments she had made to their old school. And, apparently, the school was desperate for help. “They were panicked,” Jones said. “There was not one mention of ‘Oh, don’t worry about it.’ If there was, I probably would have taken it and run with it.” Still, Jones insisted she was happy to help, and no sooner did she fulfill her commitments at the old school than she started volunteering at the new one. She has chaperoned three field trips, worked in the library and helped set up a “mad scientist” dry ice center for a Halloween party. But she admitted she considered bowing out. “Selfishly, I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is my chance for a clean break,’ she said. “I thought, ‘I can go somewhere where no one knows me. I can sit silently under the radar and not volunteer.’ ” But, she explained: “My kids really like me volunteering. Their faces light up when I’m there.” That is what most parents assume — that school volunteer work is in the best interests of their children. But some veterans are skeptical. Jen Christensen’s epiphany came on her 41st birthday in 2009. She was presiding over Teacher Appreciation Week at her children’s school in San Mateo, Calif., and getting up daily at 4 a.m. to work on the school auction. She was so overcommitted, she said, that she could not find time to celebrate. What hit harder still was that she had given up working when she had children to be home with them — and now she was continually leaving them with baby sitters because she had to attend a meeting at school. The next fall, Christensen declared herself off-limits to all school volunteer requests. “I said: ‘I’m done. I quit. Don’t call. Don’t e-mail.’ I said I have given so much of myself. I’m spending 50 hours a week working on a volunteer position. Where does it end? You want some blood?” Christensen added: “It felt fabulous. I took a step back and was able to see what was wrong and appreciate the opportunity I have. I don’t have to work, and being able to spend time with my kids is what my job really should be.”

er,” she said. Some of the pushback stems from irritation over the way volunteer requests are made, often involving large numbers of increasingly desperate-sounding e-mails. A few years ago, Karen Bantuveris was on a plane on a business trip. “I looked down and saw my BlackBerry fill up with reply-all e-mails about whose turn it is to help at recess and to bring snacks,” she said. “The more I talked to working moms, the more I heard: ‘I can’t volunteer anymore. This is ridiculous.’ ” Bantuveris put her training as a management consultant to work. She invented an online system — similar to the popular Evite invitation service — that sends a calendar of volunteer opportunities and allows parents to sign up for those of their choosing without multiple e-mail exchanges. She now runs a company called VolunteerSpot that markets the system, coordinating 460,000 volunteers, 75 percent of them parents in schools. Even among those who have made the break from volunteering, there is always guilt. “There is such a need,” Christensen said. Her year of saying “no” ended when school started this year. But still she is a far cry from her old uber-volunteer self. She agreed to be a “room parent” for the third grade, which means she plans class parties. And she did consent to oversee the kitchen-tour fund-raiser, but she is now “kind of regretting it.” It is scheduled for September, Christensen said, noting, “I still have time to get out of it.”

The Education Department has provided an unprecedented amount of aid to turn around struggling high schools, while an independent report found the nation’s high school graduation rate is on the rise. The federal announcement last week and the report from America’s Promise Alliance, a nonprofit founded by former Secretary of State Colin Powell, reflected a coordinated response to what some experts have called high school “dropout factories.” Through the 2009 economic stimulus law, the government has targeted $3.5 billion to improve persistently low-performing schools. Last week, the department disclosed that 48 percent of the 730 schools that have set turnaround plans in motion through those grants are high schools. That is a higher share, officials say, than high schools normally receive because federal education aid usually is tilted toward elementary and middle schools that qualify for the anti-poverty program known as Title I. On average, the high schools are receiving $1.5 million each to implement staff shake-ups, leadership changes or other major interventions. “In the past, low-performing high schools have been almost totally ignored in most districts’ school turnaround efforts,” Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a statement. The independent report found that the national high school graduation rate rose from 72 percent in 2001, the year Congress approved the No Child Left Behind law, to 75 percent in 2008. The rate, derived from federal data, provides an estimate of the percentage of ninth-graders from a given class who earn a regular diploma. The graduation rate had been as high as 78 percent in 1970. The report found that many states had reduced the number of high schools known as “dropout factories,” defined as those in which no more than 60 percent of students who start as freshmen make it to their senior year. There were an estimated 2,000 such schools in 2002 and about 1,750 in 2008.

TS  More leaks reveal early tensions over Nobel prize winner By Michael Wines New York Times News Service

BEIJING — It was just before Christmas 2009, and Ding Xiaowen was not happy. The U.S. ambassador had just written China’s foreign minister expressing concern for Liu Xiaobo, the Beijing intellectual imprisoned a year earlier for drafting a prodemocracy manifesto. Now Ding, a deputy in the ministry’s American section, was reading the riot act to an American attache. Ding said he would try to avoid “becoming emotional,” according to a readout on the meeting that was among thousands of leaked State Department cables released this month. Then he said that a “strongly dissatisfied” China firmly opposed the views of the American ambassador, Jon Huntsman, and that Washington must “cease using human rights as an excuse to ‘meddle’ in China’s internal affairs.” On Friday, exactly one year Related after Hunts• ‘Confucius man wrote his Peace Prize’ protest, Liu, surprises now serving an Taiwanese 11-year prison politician, sentence for Page A4 subversion, will receive the Nobel Peace Prize in a ceremony that he is unable to attend. And if anything is clear, it is that China no longer resists becoming emotional. In the two months since the Nobel committee honored Liu, China has waged an extraordinary and unprecedented campaign, domestically and internationally, to discredit the award and to dissuade other governments from endorsing it. It sent diplomats to capitals worldwide, sometimes to two and three offices, to warn that attendance at the awards ceremony in Oslo would be a black mark on relations with China. Dozens of leaked State Department cables make it apparent that U.S. diplomats closely followed the travails of Liu and other activists and regularly pressed Chinese officials to honor international norms for basic freedoms, even as Washington muted its public position on Chinese behavior. Embassy officials also met frequently with Liu’s wife, Liu Xia, and friends to monitor his case and the increase in repression of political dissidents.

Rape case spotlights broad Swedish laws

By Matt Viser The Boston Globe

WASHINGTON — Democrats sought changes Wednesday in the tax package negotiated by President Barack Obama and Republican leaders as anger among liberals prompted several Democrats to lambaste the deal and question Obama’s bargaining abilities. Rep. Michael Capuano, DMass., accused Obama of “losing without a fight.” In a sign that momentum was building for the plan, Rep. Barney Frank, a leading liberal Democrat, said that even though he would vote against the deal, it probably had enough votes to pass. “You have overwhelming Republican support and enough Democrats to do it,” he said. “I’m afraid they do” have the votes. The deal would extend for two years the Bush-era income tax cuts at all income levels, not just on income up to $250,000 per

couple as Obama had sought. In exchange, Republicans agreed to the administration’s demands for a 13-month continuation of jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed, a one-year reduction in the payroll tax for nearly all workers, and other steps aimed at lifting the economy. The issue could come to the Senate floor as early as today, but Democrats were still seeking changes, such as adding several billion dollars to extend renewable energy tax credits. Democrats have also opposed the proposed provision on the estate tax, contending that a rate of 35 percent is too low and the thresholds of protected assets — $5 million for individuals and $10 million for couples — are too high. “I’m working within the framework that was presented to us on the tax bill to see if we can get some changes,” Senate majority leader Harry Reid said. A strong bloc of Senate Re-

publicans is expected to back the plan, and Democrats emerged from a closed-door caucus suggesting they might go along as well. But it could depend on whether Democrats are able to tinker with the deal, something negotiators said won’t be permitted. “It’s not going to be changed,” said Senator Jon Kyl, an Arizona Republican who was a chief negotiator with the Obama administration. Vice President Joe Biden, a key player in the negotiations, echoed that, reportedly suggesting to Democrats privately that it’s a take-it-or-leave-it compromise. Capuano is one Democrat who has been particularly critical of the deal. “I’ve negotiated with people who are a lot tougher than Mitch McConnell,” Capuano said. “… I don’t mean to be a jerk, but I don’t need a lecture from the president of the United States on how to do negotiations.”

BLAZING PROTESTS RAVAGE POST-ELECTION HAITI

White House warns: Don’t trigger new recession WASHINGTON — Raising the direst alarm yet, the Obama administration warned fellow Democrats on Wednesday that if they defeat the big tax-cut compromise detested by many liberals, they could jolt the nation back into recession. President Barack Obama appealed anew for Congress to “get this done” and insisted that more congressional Democrats would climb aboard as they studied details of the $900 billion year-end measure. Several did announce support on Wednesday. Larry Summers, Obama’s chief economic adviser, told reporters that if the measure isn’t passed soon, it will “materially increase the risk the economy would stall out and we would have a double-dip” recession. That put the White House in the unusual position of warning its own party’s lawmakers they could be to blame for calamitous consequences if they go against the president. With many House and Senate Republicans signaling their approval of the tax cut plan, the White House’s comments were aimed mainly at House Democrats who feel Obama went too far in yielding to Republicans’ demands for continued income tax cuts and lower estate taxes for the wealthy. Summers’ remarks, however, contrasted with Obama’s comments at a news conference Tuesday. “We don’t have the danger of a double-dip recession,” the president said then. — The Associated Press

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Protesters enraged by the results of Haiti’s troubled presidential election set barricades and political offices ablaze, traded blows with U.N. peacekeepers, often by throwing stones, and shut down the country’s lone international airport Wednesday, creating the social upheaval many have feared since the Jan. 12 earthquake. The fallout from the Nov. 28 election, riddled by fraud, is violently shutting down cities across the impoverished country with gunfire and barricades at a moment when medical aid workers need to tackle a surging cholera epidemic that has claimed more than 2,000 lives. Wednesday’s protesters — four of whom

were killed — back a popular carnival singer who narrowly lost a spot in a runoff election to Jude Celestin, a political unknown viewed by supporters and detractors alike as a continuation of unpopular President Rene Preval’s administration. “Today we set fires,” said James Becimus, a 32-year-old protester near the U.S. Embassy. “Tomorrow we bring weapons.” The U.S. Embassy criticized the preliminary results Tuesday, saying Haitian, U.S. and other international monitors had predicted that Celestin was likely to be eliminated in the first round. He faces former first lady and law professor Mirlande Manigat Jan. 16. — The Associated Press

Study: 54% Mayor Bloomberg: of tree lights Washington’s failing on the economy contain lead By Dan Balz

By Jeff Plungis

The Washington Post

Bloomberg News

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has long hungered to be at the center of the national debate, to be regarded as one of New York’s greatest mayors, even to be seen as a possible president. If he finds himself a candidate in 2012, and that is still a decided long shot, his speech Wednesday may be seen as the first volley in the battle. While offering a blueprint to fix the broken economy, Bloomberg offered a withering critique of the broken politics practiced in Washington. The politician who started his career as a Democrat, became a Republican to run for mayor and then announced he was an independent, took aim at left and right with equal abandon. New York Bloomberg identified the Mayor Michael symptoms of dysfunctional pol- Bloomberg itics: partisan gridlock, political pandering, legislative influence peddling, finger-pointing, blame games and endless attacks. Democrats, he said, lost the 2010 elections for the same reasons Republicans lost in 2006 and 2008. They “spent more time and energy conducting partisan warfare than forging centrist solutions to our toughest economic problems.” He praised the agreement between President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans to extend the Bush tax cuts. “When did cooperation in government become treason?” he asked. What Bloomberg has been trying for some time is create a consensus in the middle of the political spectrum and convert that into a movement strong enough to reshape the nation’s politics — and, perhaps, allow him to run for president someday.

Fifty-four percent of holiday lights tested in a U.S. study have more lead than regulators permit in children’s products, with some strands containing more than 30 times those levels. Consumers should wash their hands after handling holiday lights, according to HealthyStuff. org, a product-information website that posted the data Wednesday. The Ecology Center, the Ann Arbor, Mich.-based group which runs HealthyStuff.org, tested 68 light sets in the study. “The last thing families want to be worrying about during the holidays is whether they are exposing their children to toxic chemicals by decorating their tree,” said Jeff Gearhart, research director at the Ecology Center. The Consumer Protection Safety Commission enforces a standard of 300 parts per million for lead in children’s products. That’s the limit at which California requires warning labels for all goods. The CPSC’s limit is scheduled to decrease to 100 parts per million next year. Lead is a common component in vinyl, the material used to coat light wirings and bulb sockets, Gearhart said. Three years after Congress established stricter lead-paint and lead-content limits in children’s products, companies are taking steps against toxic chemicals in other items. In June, McDonald’s offered $3 refunds to customers who bought drinking glasses after cadmium was found in painted illustrations from the movie “Shrek Forever After.” The CPSC has the authority to order recalls and ask for manufacturing changes if it determines there’s a risk of lead poisoning from sources other than lead paint.

Democrats controlling the House muscled through legislation Wednesday night that would freeze the budgets of most Cabinet departments and fund the war in Afghanistan for another year. The bill would cap the agencies’ annual operating budgets at the $1.2 trillion approved for the recently finished budget year — a $46 billion cut of more than 3 percent from President Barack Obama’s request. It includes $159 billion to conduct the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq next year and deals a further blow to Obama’s efforts to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The 423-page measure, opposed by Republicans, conservative Democrats and some anti-war lawmakers, narrowly passed by a 212-206 vote. The budget-freeze bill wraps a dozen unfinished spending bills into a single measure. There are many exceptions to the freeze. The bill, combined with a massive measure to extend the Bush-era tax cuts, extend unemployment benefits and cut the payroll tax, represents the bulk of Congress’ unfinished work as the lame-duck session approaches its close. A widely backed food safety bill is hitching a ride on the leg-

islation. The measure passed the Senate by a 73-25 vote last week but got caught in a snag because it contained revenue provisions that, under the Constitution, must originate in the House. Senate Democrats are working on a different approach that would provide slightly more money and would include thousands of earmarks. It’s unclear whether that measure can get enough support from GOP old-timers to survive a filibuster by party conservatives. A bill to grant legal status to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant students passed the House late Wednesday, giving Obama an unexpected although largely symbolic victory on an issue he has called a top priority. The bill, known as the Dream Act, passed the House by a vote of 216-198. But a vote in the Senate on opening debate on the bill was scheduled fortoday , and the measure seemed likely to fail there. Meanwhile, a proposal by Senate Democrats to repeal the military’s 17-year-old ban on openly gay troops stalled Wednesday after Democrats feared a critical test vote would fail.

After unleashing an unprecedented trove of U.S. government secrets, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is behind bars to answer questions about whether his conduct Julian amounted to Assange rape under Sweden’s unusually broad definition. Sweden prides itself on gender equality and fairness, a tradition underpinning an interpretation of rape that often requires only a low level of coercion. A minor threat or force, such as pulling an arm, can be enough to result in charges. Between heavily redacted Swedish police reports and details revealed Tuesday in a British court, a picture is emerging in which flirtation led to sex before the WikiLeaks founder is accused of crossing the line by having sex with a woman who was asleep. Assange denies his actions amounted to rape, and his lawyers call the charges politically motivated. — The Associated Press

N  B Impeached judge first to be ousted since 1989 WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate voted to convict Louisiana district court Judge Thomas Porteous on charges of corruption and perjury Wednesday, overcoming objections that it was ignoring precedent that protected officeholders from overzealous political prosecution. The Senate acted for only the eighth time Judge Thomas in American Porteous history to remove a federal judge through the impeachment process; the most recent two came in 1989. It was also the first Senate impeachment trial since President Bill Clinton stood accused of obstruction of justice and perjury in 1999. Clinton appointed Porteous to a Louisiana district court in 1994. Though Congress found Porteous guilty, he does not face criminal prosecution. Among the charges against Porteous: that he lied to both the Senate and the FBI. On Tuesday, Porteous also acknowledged accepting cash and favors from attorneys and bondsmen doing business in his court.

Court seems in support of migrant hiring fines The Supreme Court on Wednesday seemed split but leaning in favor of an Arizona law that severely penalizes employers that hire illegal immigrants. Some justices voiced concern that Arizona was infringing on federal power while others said the state was compelled to act by the enormity of the illegal immigration problem. This law is separate from a more recent one that requires police to check an individual’s immigration status. The decision in the illegal-worker case, though, might give some indication of how willing the justices are to allow states to come up with their own solutions to illegal immigration.

China’s own peace prize catches winner by surprise By Edward Wong New York Times News Service

BEIJING — The newly created award, named after the venerated Chinese sage whose teachings have been recited for thousands of years, was meant to rival the Nobel Peace Prize and to lend an air of respectability and gravitas to China’s rise on the world stage. But those lofty goals appeared lost on the Taiwanese politician honored as its first winner. In fact, Wednesday, the politician, Lien Chan, had yet to hear officially that he had won. Or that he was to appear at the ceremony in Beijing today to claim $15,000 in award money. Or that there was even such a thing as a Confucius Peace Prize. “Are you asking about the peace prize thing?” Lien’s office director said in exaspera-

After that, its offices moved to a temporary location on the north side of Bend, where it will stay until a new facility is found. When the DMV announced in late August that it had signed a lease with Brookswood Meadow LLC for a spot in the Brookswood Meadow Plaza, it came as a surprise to many in the neighborhood because there was no notification or chance for public comment. Many people in the RiverRim neighborhood objected to the DMV moving in next door. Among other things, residents were concerned the

In contrast, the designated winner of the Confucius prize has an agenda closer to China’s heart: pushing for closer ties between Taiwan and the Chinese Communist Party.

Still, Mullen on Wednesday called for caution. “Rather than meet belligerence in kind, you chose to meet it with restraint and resolve and with readiness,” Mullen said. “The North should not mistake this restraint as a lack of resolve, nor should they interpret it as willingness to accept continued attacks to go unchallenged.”

DMV would increase traffic and potentially endanger children who attended Elk Meadow Elementary School and needed to cross Brookswood Boulevard to get to school. They also had concerns about the DMV moving to the outskirts of Bend, where it would be an inconvenience for people in other parts of the city. Many of these individuals challenged the DMV whenever they could. They flooded City Council meetings, petitioned Gov. Ted Kulongoski and held demonstrations in the Brookswood Meadow Plaza parking lot — all in an attempt to prevent the DMV from opening in their neighborhood. For the most part, these efforts failed. It wasn’t until the city decided to review the parking requirements in the shopping center that the state agency was afforded an opportunity to get out of its lease. The city’s review prevented any construction on the new DMV site until the analysis was completed. This effectively pushed back the

date the DMV was supposed to be allowed to move in beyond what was agreed upon in the lease, giving ODOT a loophole to terminate the agreement. “It was a business decision,” House said. “The property owner couldn’t prepare the property by Jan. 15, and we’d already delayed the opening by a month.” RiverRim resident Joe Mansfield, one of the organizers behind the effort to stop the DMV from moving into Brookswood Meadow Plaza, was pleased with the state’s decision to reverse course. He also said he’s become a little cynical about the political process that he and others had to endure the past several months. “What it really comes down to is it takes a lot of momentum to take away the inertia of government,” Mansfield said. “If it takes this much pressure to get something changed at this level, how much more would it take to get something done at the state or federal level?”

neighbors down on Brookswood has been resolved.” He didn’t want to comment on the DMV terminating its lease with Brookswood Meadow LLC because he said the company is still assessing its rights. He did take some umbrage, however, with a reference in the DMV’s termination letter to him that stated the agency was calculating its damages for his failure to deliver the property when promised. In the meantime, Lovejoy said he’s hoping Mansfield and the other people who protested the DMV do try to help the plaza’s businesses. He also said he’d think twice before allowing the DMV back into his shopping center, saying he’s already had his “nose bloodied” once in that fight. “As for the DMV,” he said, “it doesn’t sound like the last chapter has been written in this book.”

Arrest in Portland-like bomb plot in Baltimore BALTIMORE — A 21-year-old construction worker who had recently converted to Islam and told an FBI informant he thought about nothing but jihad was arrested Wednesday when he tried to detonate what he thought was a bomb at a military recruitment center, authorities said. Antonio Martinez, a naturalized U.S. citizen also known as Muhammad Hussain, faces charges of attempted murder of federal officers and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, according to court documents filed Wednesday. The bomb he is accused of trying to detonate was fake and had been provided by an undercover FBI agent. The case is similar to one in Portland, where authorities arrested a Somali-born teenager the day after Thanksgiving; he is suspected of trying to detonate what he thought were explosives in a van.

Gun used in suicide also killed publicist BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Police say a gun used by an ex-convict to commit suicide appears to have been used to kill a Hollywood publicist. They suspect he acted alone in the slaying. Ronni Chasen was shot multiple times in the chest after returning home from a premiere of the movie “Burlesque.” Harold Martin Smith later shot and killed himself when police went to speak with him at an apartment building. Officers approached Smith after someone phoned a tip into the TV show “America’s Most Wanted.”

U.S. further restricts deep-water projects The Obama administration will require environmental studies before approving any deep-water wells — adding a new regulatory hurdle that virtually assures that the government will not greenlight any of those projects soon. In outlining the plan Wednesday, the nation’s top offshore drilling regulator said he hoped the environmental reviews would add “weeks, not months” to the already slow deep-water permitting process. But oil and gas industry leaders were skeptical, noting that even though the Obama administration lifted its moratorium on deep-water drilling in October, the government has yet to approve any new wells that would have been blocked by the ban. — From wire reports

Even though the DMV is leaving his neighborhood, Mansfield now plans to help the owners of Brookswood Meadow Plaza get some business back. For some, he said, this will mean an end to the boycotts of the C.E. Lovejoy’s Market, the grocery store that anchors the shopping center. “I think we have an opportunity to take this group and use it in a positive manner,” he said. Scott Lovejoy, of Brookswood Meadow LLC, said the grocery store had already seen a slight uptick in business Wednesday after the DMV announced its plans to terminate its lease with his company. But while it’s still too soon for Lovejoy to assess the impact to the shopping center — which is about half-leased — he said the loss of the DMV will definitely hurt plaza finances. “It’s a troubling situation and not a very good day,” Lovejoy said. “I guess primarily we’re pleased that the issue which has caused so much distress for some of our

MIDEAST PEACE TALKS

Israelis, Arabs agree: Obama efforts failed

Continued from A1 At the same time, both Facebook and Twitter have corporate aspirations that hinge on their ability to serve as ad platforms for other companies. This leaves them with tough public relations and business decisions around how they should handle situations as politically charged as the WikiLeaks developments. Some Internet experts say the situation highlights the complexities of free speech issues on the Internet, as grassroots Web companies evolve and take central control over what their users can make public. Marcia Hofmann, a lawyer at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said, “Any Internet user who cares about free speech or has a controversial or unpopular message should be concerned about the fact that intermediaries might not let them express it.”

‘Operation Payback’ The problem came into relief Wednesday, when a group calling itself Operation Payback spent much of the day posting notes on Facebook and Twitter that told followers which companies to single out and that documented hacking successes. But Facebook banned one of the group’s pages, saying that organizing attacks like the organization did violated its terms of use. Operation Payback went to Twitter to complain. Twitter allowed the Operation Payback account to stay active most of Wednesday. The group’s account was disabled late in the day, though, after it posted a link to a file that provided thousands of consumer credit card numbers, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation. (WikiLeaks’ own Twitter account remains active, and it is the group’s main channel for reaching supporters and the media.) The last week has given rise to a hacking war in which groups have blocked access to WikiLeaks’ websites by bombarding them with requests. Some hackers have claimed to attack WikiLeaks on patriotic grounds. And now the WikiLeaks supporters have responded in kind, flying the freedom of speech banner as the motivation for their actions.

Many targets Within 12 hours of a British judge’s decision Tuesday to deny Assange bail in a Swedish extradition case, attacks on the websites of WikiLeaks’ “enemies,” as defined by the organization’s impassioned supporters, caused several corporate websites to become unavailable or slow down markedly. Targets of the attacks included MasterCard.com, which had stopped processing donations for WikiLeaks; Amazon. com, which revoked the use of its computer servers; and the online payment service PayPal, which cut off its services. Visa.com was also affected by the attacks, as was the website of the Swedish prosecutor’s office and the lawyer representing the two women whose allegations of sexual misconduct are the basis of Sweden’s extradition bid. The online assaults underlined the growing reach of selfdescribed “cyber anarchists,” anti-government and anti-corporate activists who have made an icon of Assange, whom they consider one of their own. The attacks also appeared to show renewed support for Assange, a 39-year-old Australian, who has appeared increasingly isolated in recent months amid the scores of leaks. The cyberattacks in Assange’s defense appear to have been coordinated by Anonymous, a loosely affiliated group of activist computer hackers who have singled out other groups before, including the Church of Scientology. Last weekend, members of Anonymous vowed in two online manifestos to take revenge on any organization that lined up against WikiLeaks. Anonymous claimed responsibility for the MasterCard attack in Web messages and, according to one activist associated with the group, continued to conduct multiple and repeated waves of attacks on MasterCard and other companies during the day. Almost all the corporate websites that were attacked appeared to be operating normally later Wednesday.

Years after Lennon’s death, fans learn something new By Deepti Hajela and Nekesa Mumbi Moody Tje Associated Press

NEW YORK — John Lennon’s fans celebrated his life Wednesday by visiting Strawberry Fields, the Central Park garden dedicated in his honor, while a newly released interview he gave shortly before his death showed he was optimistic about his future. On the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s murder outside his Manhattan apartment building, admirers played his music nearby at Strawberry Fields and placed flowers on a mosaic named for his song “Imagine.” In the newly released interview, conducted just three days before he was shot, Lennon complained about his critics — saying they were just interested in “dead heroes” and mused that he had “plenty of time” to accomplish his goals.

The interview, believed to be his last print interview, was released Wednesday to The Associated Press by Rolling Stone magazine, which uses the full interview for a story that will be on stands Friday. While brief excerpts of Jonathan Cott’s interview were released for a 1980 Rolling Stone cover story days after Lennon’s death, this is the first time the entire interview has been published. “His words are totally joyous and vibrant and hopeful and subversive and fearless,” Cott told the AP on Tuesday. “He didn’t mince words.” At 40, he was also reflective of what he had accomplished and remained committed to his goal of peace and love on earth. “I’ve never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can. … But I still believe in peace, love and understanding.”

JERUSALEM — Israeli and Palestinian leaders traded accusations Wednesday over who was to blame for the collapse of talks that the Obama administration had hoped would lead to a comprehensive peace settlement within a year. Both sides, and several Arab countries, quietly agreed, however, that the Obama administration wasn’t in a position to mediate a final peace deal. The White House said Tuesday it had given up on its efforts to persuade Israel to freeze construction at Jewish settlements in the West Bank. The freeze was a key demand of the Palestinians before they would engage in face-to-face talks with the Israelis. Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb What’s next?

Nir hold a meeting on Hefetz, a Netanyahu the sidelines of the spokesman, said the conference that would Palestinians were lay the groundwork finding “excuses” for for indirect talks. refusing to talk. The collapse of the talks was a major blow to President Barack Obama’s foreign policy efforts. Only in September, the administration had trumpeted its efforts, saying it intended to bring the two sides together in face-to-face talks. Yasser Abed Rabbo, an aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said the failure of the Obama administration to make Israel stop construction raised questions about whether American officials were capable of overseeing the peace talks. “The one who couldn’t make Israel limit its settlement activities in order to conduct serious negotiations, how can he be able to make Israel accept a fair solution?” Abed Rabbo told the Voice of Palestine radio station. While Netanyahu’s senior Cabinet kept mum on the future of the peace talks, the largely rightwing Israeli parties that make up his coalition celebrated what they saw as a victory. Parliament Deputy Speaker Danny Danon praised Netanyahu for rebuffing U.S. efforts to force Israel into another “damaging and pointless” freeze.

Cyclocross Continued from A1 “At least it will be warmer than last year,” Ross said. “I don’t think participants like the below-zero stuff we had last year. Cyclocross is supposed to be muddy and gross, but when it’s 22 below, everything is frozen solid.” Ice was an issue Wednesday morning, when race organizers were forced to delay the start of the nonchampionship races for an hour while waiting for portions of the course to thaw. They used deicer on the pavement sections of the course near the start and finish area on Shevlin Hixon Drive. By midmorning, a rainbow greeted the racers along with sporadic rain showers. The course was mostly wet and slushy, and it appeared to be turning muddy in spots. “It was so much better than (earlier) this morning,” said Jordan Cullen, 15, of Hudson, Wis., who won the men’s 10-29 race on Wednesday. “There’s no ice. It’s pretty good, actually.” Cullen offered some advice for racers this week. “Just chill, don’t panic,” he said. “If you fall a few times, don’t freak out.” Championship racing in the Juniors and Masters divisions is scheduled for today through Saturday. Saturday’s featured race is the U23 men (1 p.m.), and Sunday’s schedule includes the elite women (12:30 p.m.) and the elite men (2:30 p.m.).

The races in Oregon Cyclocross is believed to have begun in Europe in the early 1900s as a way for road cyclists to train in the offseason. The first U.S. Cyclocross Nationals was staged in 1963 in Palos Park, Ill., and the championships were staged at Sunriver in Central Oregon in 1976. Portland hosted the nationals in 2003 and 2004. Portland — where the eightrace Cross Crusade series occurs with more than 1,000 competitors per race — has become a hotbed for the sport. And no wonder. Mud is usually not hard to find in Portland in the fall. “Being able to ride through mud is a skill,” Ross said. “It makes it fun and more interesting. If you don’t like mud, then you might want to pick a new sport. “Riding on snow and ice is a skill, too.” Ryan Trebon, a professional cyclocross racer who lives in

“Being able to ride through mud is a skill. It makes it fun and more interesting. If you don’t like mud, then you might want to pick a new sport.”

Fridays In

— Brad Ross, race director for the 2010 Cyclocross Nationals Bend, said he fully expects a muddy course by the time he competes in the elite men’s race Sunday. “People will ride the course, which makes the slush go away, and it’ll just become wet and muddy,” Trebon said. “I don’t mind it. I always race well in adverse conditions like that. You have to just go out and ride, regardless of the conditions.”

Science to cyclocross Equipment adjustments become crucial in inclement weather. Type of tires and tire pressure are difficult choices that cyclocross racers must make before they race. Most cyclocross bikes are similar to road bikes but have treaded tires. In snow and ice, lower tire pressure will allow for better traction, Ross explained. He noted, though, that if the pressure is too low, racers risk a flat tire. “A two-psi (pounds per square inch) difference is the difference between having traction or not,” he said. “It’s a very fine line between having good traction and risking a flat tire.” Ross compared tire pressure in cyclocross to wax in alpine skiing. “It’s a science,” he said. “They’ll spend three days practicing with different tire pressures. They might have 10 wheel sets to choose from, and they’ll make a decision on tire and psi 15 minutes before the race starts. “It’s like a ski-wax technician. The temperature drops 1 degree, and you change skis. It’s high-tech.” For age-group racers, who might have an extra wheel set but probably not a mechanic, Ross said he recommends starting at a high tire pressure, then letting air out until the pressure feels right. “Everybody has to be prepared for whatever the weather,” Ross said, “because we’re going to race no matter what.” Mark Morical can be reached at 541-383-0318 or at mmorical@bendbulletin.com.

“Five other dogs walked right past Chadwick that morning when they were out for their morning walk. Only Nala alerted to Chadwick’s presence.” — Chris Bauersfeld, shelter manager, Humane Society of Redmond

Found Continued from A1 A week before he was discovered in the ditch, Chadwick escaped from his new owner’s property, two miles from the shelter. Bauersfeld suspects that Chadwick lost his sense of smell and direction in the snowstorm and stumbled along the frozen streets of Redmond for close to a week. Somehow, the dog managed to survive long enough to be rescued by his former shelter mate. “Five other dogs walked right past Chadwick that morning when they were out for their morning walk,” Bauersfeld said. “Only Nala alerted to Chadwick’s presence.” Bauersfeld said Nala has been with the shelter since April. Though it’s unknown whether the two dogs had any contact during Chadwick’s shelter stay, it was possible Nala recognized Chadwick’s scent Monday morning during the walk; Bauersfeld believes Nala probably just smelled another dog in the area and followed her natural instinct to track it down. Once Chadwick was treated for dehydration at the shelter, he was returned to his owner that afternoon, in good condition. Chadwick’s owner, Tina Mazzariello, who could not be reached for comment, had been

Chadwick, a blind cocker spaniel adopted from the Humane Society of Redmond last month, escaped from his owner’s property and was lost for a week before being found by another shelter dog Monday morning. searching for him ever since he escaped, said Bauersfeld, who added that Mazzariello has a soft spot for shelter animals nobody wants to adopt. Chadwick was one of several disabled animals the owner has adopted from the Humane Society, Bauersfeld said. Bauersfeld hopes Chadwick’s rescue will help Nala’s chances of being adopted. Because Nala is a pit bull mix with a few behavioral problems, such as jumping fences and not getting along with some dogs, the shelter has struggled to find

a home for her. “I hope that after this, somebody would step forward and adopt Nala,” Bauersfeld said. “She’s really a delightful dog.” Chadwick is alive today, Borland said, because Nala wouldn’t stop pulling on the leash Monday morning. “Nala was a hero that day,” Borland said. “I probably would’ve never seen Chadwick there if it wasn’t for her.” Megan Kehoe can be reached at 541-383-0354 or at mkehoe@bendbulletin.com

A giant leap for private spacecraft

SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket blasts off Wednesday from Cape Canaveral, Fla., carrying a Dragon capsule, which is designed to deliver up to 13,000 pounds of cargo to the International Space Station.

Frank Harrigan of Cocoa, Fla., does some fishing Wednesday morning at Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral as the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket is launched for its first NASA demonstration flight. SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said the company has poured more than $600 million into the test flight effort so far and received $278 million from NASA.

“I’m sort of in semi-shock. It’s just mind-blowingly awesome. I apologize, and I wish I was more articulate, but it’s hard to be articulate when your mind’s blown — but in a very good way.” — Elon Musk, CEO, Space Exploration Technologies Inc.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA took a giant leap away from the spaceflight business Wednesday as a private company launched a spacecraft into orbit and for the first time guided it safely back to Earth, a feat previously achieved only by large national governments. The capsule built by Space Exploration Technologies Inc. splashed down into the Pacific Ocean, right on target, following a three-hour mission that should pave the way for an actual flight to the International Space Station next summer. NASA wants to enlist private companies to handle space station supply runs as well as astronaut rides after the shuttles stop flying next year. Prior to Wednesday’s test flight, recovering a spacecraft re-entering from orbit was something achieved by only five independent nations: the United States, Russia, China, Japan and India, plus the European Space Agency, a consortium of countries. If, after Wednesday’s success, any detractors still doubt the prospects for private spaceflight, said the company’s CEO, Elon Musk, “I pity them. … They would be fighting on the wrong side of yesterday’s war.”

Fire during Chile prison brawl kills at least 81 By Eva Vergara The Associated Press

SANTIAGO, Chile — A fire started during an inmate brawl swept through an overcrowded prison Wednesday, killing at least 81 people and seriously injuring 14. Chileans heard the screams of inmates after a prisoner using a contraband cell phone called state television for help. The early morning blaze at San Miguel prison, which preliminary reports indicated may have been intentionally set, was the worst

disaster in the history of Chile’s penitentiary system, Health Minister Jaime Manalich said. The fire began during fighting between inmates and reached its maximum intensity in just three minutes, Interior Minister Rodribo Hinzpeter said. It was brought under control in three hours. Police operations director Jaime Concha insisted police acted quickly despite coping with 1,900 inmates at the prison built for 700. “The conditions that existed inside this prison are absolutely in-

humane,” said President Sebastian Pinera, who visited an emergency center where inmates were treated for burns and smoke inhalation. Chilean television broadcast spine-chilling audio and video from the prison fire, some of it shot by prisoners using banned cell phones and sent to stations. Santiago region Gov. Fernando Echeverria said the official death toll was 81. By Wednesday evening, officials had identified 31 of the victims because many of the bodies were unrecognizable.

PHILADELPHIA — There was an early holiday present for 12,400 Ikea employees in the United States. Bicycles for all. The brand was not disclosed, nor the cost — after all, it is a gift — but the bicycles were made specifically for Ikea employees, to thank them for “great results and great team work,” said company spokeswoman Mona Liss. “It has been a good year for Ikea US (and Ikea Global as well),” Liss wrote in an e-mail. Ikea’s U.S. headquarters is in Conshohocken, Pa. Giving bicycles to employees — Ikea calls them “co-workers” — also “supports a healthy lifestyle and everyday sustainable transport,” she said. The silver bikes have a yellow, white and blue stripe, and are all-terrain and unisex. They don’t have the Ikea logo, however, because “we don’t want people to think we manufacture bicycles,” Liss said. Employee Luz Morales of Philadelphia called the gift “completely unexpected.” “It’s such a cool gift, and ties in with our tagline of being ‘the life-improvement store,’ ” said Morales, who plans to use it primarily for recreation. Morales wasn’t a cyclist before, “but I am now.” — From staff and wire reports

Passenger boardings at Redmond Airport in November increased a little over boardings from November 2009, but decreased slightly from October, according to figures released by the airport Wednesday. For the first 11 months of the year, total boardings continued to slightly outpace those for the first 11 months of 2009. In November, 19,016 passengers boarded flights out of Redmond, about 1.2 percent above the 18,790 boardings in November 2009. November’s tally, though, was down about 1.5 percent from October’s count of 19,310. So far this year, 215,614 have boarded flights out of Redmond Airport, slightly more than 2 percent over the 211,350 for the same period in 2009.

end’s Breedlove Guitar Co. has been purchased by Two Old Hippies, an Iowa-based company that makes and sells guitars and clothing. The deal closed Nov. 30. “Breedlove joined the Two Old Hippies family,” Tom Bedell, who gave his title as one of the Two Old Hippies, said Wednesday. The other is his wife, Molly. Breedlove, founded in 1990 by Larry Breedlove and Steve Henderson, according to The Bulletin’s archives, built its guitars for years in Tumalo before moving into its new 20,000-square-foot shop near Summit High School in 2008.

The company also makes mandolins, and in March added ukuleles to the lineup. Breedlove employs about 50 people, said Michelle Carney, spokeswoman and business manager. Bedell said Breedlove will continue making guitars, mandolins and ukuleles in Bend. Some of Breedlove’s recent models will be discontinued, Bedell said, because they cost too much to pro-

The nonprofit world is stewing over the ban Apple has put on making donations on the iPhone via charity apps. No one, including Apple, has data on how many nonprofits have created apps for the iPhone. Organizations like the Monterey Bay Aquarium and American Cancer Society have them, but none can be used to make gifts. Prospective donors instead are directed out of a nonprofit’s app and to its website, which the organizations say makes the process of contributing more cumbersome. “When you’re popped out of an app, you then have to go through a whole bunch of clicks to make a donation,” said Beth Kanter, co-author of “The Networked Nonprofit” and chief executive of Zoetica, a consulting firm. “It’s cumbersome and it doesn’t have to be.” See iPhone / B5

duce, but they will be replaced by new lines. During a recent visit to Bend, Bedell met with Breedlove employees and designed some new models, which the company wants to show off next month in Anaheim, Calif., at the National Association of Music Merchants trade show, one of the largest for musical merchandise. Bedell loves Bend, he said, and he praised Breedlove employees’ skills and quality. While it’s too early to discuss specifics, he said, he would like to increase employment at the Bend guitar-making company. “My intention is to grow it as big as we can possibly grow it,” he said.

Butler Aircraft rolled its first plane, more than 100 feet long and built in 1958, into a new Madras hangar less than a month ago. But county officials are already looking down the road at what other possibilities having Butler Aircraft in town could bring to the community. “If you think of a shopping center, you look for a cornerstone tenant,” said Jefferson County Economic Development Director Wayne Pearson. “So many things can be looked at from a different perspective because we have a major tenant.” Pearson said he believes having Butler in the county could create new educational opportunities for people from high school age and beyond. He envisions classes being taught to train people on every aspect of fighting fires — from the command center duties and orchestrating the planes in the air to firefighting tactics and airport safety. Since the hangar space is large and includes a training room, he said, people could be taught aircraft maintenance as well. “We think there is potential for the Madras Airport to be a regional training center for companies like Butler Aircraft and for aerial forest firefighting and pilots,” Pearson said. Butler is in the process of moving its headquarters from Redmond Airport to Madras Airport. The city of Madras joined Butler Aircraft to build the 39,000square-foot hangar using mainly state funds. The city received $2.2 million in a Connect Oregon II grant in 2008. Butler Aircraft is an aerial firefighting company that uses Douglas DC-7 planes to suppress fires. See Hangar / B5

Can power of Tide crack the dry cleaning code? Procter & Gamble is using brand loyalty, scent to lure business from mom ’n’ pops By Andrew Martin New York Times News Service

MASON, Ohio — For more than a decade, some of the nation’s shrewdest marketers have tried to muscle in on the neighborhood dry cleaner, only to give up after years of labor and millions of dollars in investments. Undeterred, Procter & Gamble is taking a shot at it, again. Having persuaded Americans to buy

synthetic laundry detergent, fluorinated toothpaste and disposable diapers, P&G believes it has cracked the code on the dry cleaning business, too. Where other dry cleaning entrepreneurs have tried to come up with clever business models for dry cleaning, P&G’s primary innovation is in the brand name itself: Tide Dry Cleaners, named after its best-selling laundry detergent. With more than 800,000 Facebook fans and legions of loyal customers, Tide will draw people into the franchise stores, and superior service — which includes drive-through service, 24-hour pickup and environmentally benign cleaning methods — will keep them coming back, company officials predict.

An unusual split in the labor movement has developed over President Barack Obama’s proposed free-trade pact with South Korea, with two powerful unions backing the deal — a development that experts say will make congressional ratification far more likely. The United Auto Workers are pleased that the agreement will increase auto exports to Korea, and the United Food and Commercial Workers are encouraged that the pact will bolster meat exports to Korea. Both have embraced the deal, which is a modified version of an agreement that President George W. Bush first negotiated in 2007. By supporting the agreement, the two unions are breaking with organized labor’s traditional opposition to free-trade agreements as a threat to American jobs. See Trade / B2

Senate avoids cut in Medicare pay for doctors Obama calls vote on bipartisan agreement an ‘important step’ to stabilize the system By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Senate approved a measure Wednesday to avoid a steep cut in Medicare pay for doctors by shifting some money from President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law. The deal by Senate leaders of both parties was approved by a voice vote and appeared head-

ed for passage by the House, which would send the measure to Obama for his signature. The president had urged lawmakers to move quickly. “This agreement is an important step forward to stabilize Medicare,” Obama said in a statement. When Democrats passed the health care law, they used Medicare cuts to pay much of the cost

of providing insurance to millions who lack coverage. Now, lawmakers are reversing the money flow to stave off a scheduled 25 percent cut to doctors on Jan. 1, tapping financing for the health care overhaul to keep Medicare from breaking down. The $19 billion to pay doctors at current rates for another year will come mostly from tightening the rules on tax credits in the health care law to prevent waste. The credits will make premiums more affordable for millions. It might seem like the proverbi-

al robbing Peter to pay Paul, with a game of budget tag thrown in. As bewildering as it sounds, the maneuver shows how federal health care funding is increasingly connected — even among programs serving different constituencies. Just last week, Obama’s deficit commission called for a single government health care budget, a step to getting costs under control. The move also indicates there could be billions more to be squeezed from such tweaks to the health care law.

Republicans block legislation to award seniors $250 check By Jim Abrams The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — House and Senate Republicans on Wednesday thwarted Democratic efforts to award $250 checks to Social Security recipients facing a second consecutive year without a cost-of-living increase. President Barack Obama and Democrats have urged approval of the one-time payment, saying seniors barely getting by on their Social Security checks face undue hardships without the COLA increase. But most Republicans contended that the nation couldn’t afford the estimated $14 billion cost of the payment, and that the COLA freezes in 2010 and 2011 come after seniors received a significant boost in 2009. The measure was brought up

under a fast-track procedure in the House that required a twothirds majority for passage. The 254-153 vote in favor of the bill fell short of that. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the financial aid was critical to seniors facing rising costs and falling home values and was fiscally responsible. “But unfortunately,” she said, “congressional Republicans overwhelmingly chose to oppose it.” Twenty-six Republicans voted for the bill, while 141 opposed it. Democrats were in favor, 228-12. Later, the Senate voted 53-45 on a measure to bring the Social Security supplement bill to the Senate floor for debate. That was seven short of the 60 votes needed to advance the legislation. COLAs are set automatically each year by an inflation mea-

sure that was adopted by Congress in 1975. More than 58 million retirees, disabled people and surviving family members receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income checks. The average monthly check is $1,072. The increase for 2009 was 5.8 percent, the largest in 27 years. It was triggered by a sharp but short-lived spike in gas prices to above $4 a gallon in the summer of 2008. By law, the next increase in benefits won’t come until consumer prices as a whole rise above what they were that summer. Democrats and advocacy groups say the formula does not accurately reflect the living costs of seniors, who pay more for such commodities as health care and drugs.

The federal government is planning to sell a significant part of its shares in the American International Group — perhaps as much as onefifth — in the first quarter of 2011 as it begins to unwind its ownership stake, people briefed on the matter said Wednesday. The stock offering in AIG, the bailed-out insurer, could reach $15 billion, said these people, who were not authorized to speak publicly. The discussions between AIG and the government over the specifics of such a sale are occurring as the insurer makes progress in its plan to repay the $130 billion bailout. AIG took a major step in carrying out that plan on Wednesday, disclosing in a regulatory filing that it had formalized the terms to pay back its obligations to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, including $20 billion of secured debt. It will also transfer other obligations to the Treasury Department. AIG has long viewed repaying the New York Fed’s credit line as a necessity, removing a major source of debt and clearing the way for a sale of the Treasury’s stock. Under the plan, AIG will essentially shift its obligations from the New York Fed to the Treasury Department, which already owns about 79.9 percent of the company. AIG has raised billions of dollars by selling assets, including major international life insurance operations. When the deal announced Wednesday closes — expected by March 15 — Treasury’s holdings will rise to slightly more than 92 percent of AIG. The federal government will then sell its shares over time.

Trade Continued from B1 The machinists’ union has denounced the Korea deal, while two other powerful unions, the steelworkers and the communications workers, will announce their opposition Thursday, union officials say. Some trade experts say that the support of the autoworkers and the food and commercial workers is likely to sway enough Democrats in the House and Senate to ensure ratification. The agreement is also subject to approval by South Korea’s National Assembly. “The ratification chances for the Korean agreement are extremely good because you now have a split in labor,” said Gary Hufbauer, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute of International Economics. Hufbauer said it was unusual for labor to be so divided over a trade agreement. Unified labor opposition has helped block ratification of trade agreements with Colombia, Panama and, until now, South Korea. But facing pressure from the autoworkers and other unions, Obama pressed South Korea to renegotiate important provisions in the 2007 accord. The

revised deal would reduce tariffs and other trade restrictions on American auto and beef exports and continue American tariffs on Korean cars and trucks for an extended period. The UAW’s president, Bob King, praised the agreement, saying it would significantly expand American auto exports to South Korea. “I’m supporting this because I think it’s in the best interests of our members and in the best interests of our country,” he said in an interview on Wednesday. “The most important thing for the economic well-being of the U.S. is to protect jobs and create jobs, and I think this agreement will do that.” The autoworkers are pleased that the deal keeps a 2.5 percent American tariff on Korean autos for four years and a 25 percent tariff on Korean sport utility vehicles for six years rather than lifting them immediately, as the 2007 accord called for. Korea, meanwhile, will immediately cut its tariff on American auto imports in half, to 4 percent, while allowing in 75,000 American cars each year that meet American safety standards, even if they do not meet Korean safety standards.

Breedlove Continued from B1 Two Old Hippies has two other guitar lines, Bedell and Great Divide guitars. Both are made in China, which made for a long trip when Bedell wanted to check out the wood for his instruments. “Now, all I have to do is go to Bend,” he said. Two Old Hippies serves as the parent company for the guitar manufacturing and 2OH Threads, Molly Bedell’s clothing company, which offers gifts for hippie chicks, guys, boys and girls, according to the website. “We’re a lifestyle company,” Bedell said. “Our slogan is peace, love and rock ’n’ roll.” Two Old Hippies was incorporated in Iowa in 2009, the same year the Bedells bought The Great Divide, a music store in Aspen, Colo., that also led to the name of the guitar line, according to Tom Bedell and his company’s website. But Bedell’s experience in the guitar business stretches back to the 1960s, when he began importing guitars from Japan and selling them in Iowa. He called the ’60s and ’70s “probably the happiest time of my life.” Bedell later took over his family’s fishing tackle business,

Berkley, which later became Pure Fishing. He built it into a $500 million company, he told the publication Musical Merchandise Review. The Jarden Corp. bought Pure Fishing in 2007 for $300 million in cash, along with other considerations, according to Jarden’s 2007 annual report. Bedell said he and Molly sailed the Pacific for a while, but realized they missed being in business, and in 2009 when the music store went on the market, they bought it. Peter Newport, Breedlove’s former president, decided not to stay with the company, said Bedell, who praised Newport’s management and marketing at Breedlove. Kim Breedlove, who designs and builds the company’s most exclusive instruments, will continue. Bedell did not have a title for Kim Breedlove, whom he called a genius who has mastered design, inlay and other aspects of guitar making. Maybe, Bedell said, Breedlove would be “chief inspirer.” “If we ever changed our name, Bedell said, “he’d be our third old hippie.” Tim Doran can be reached at 541-383-0360 or at tdoran@bendbulletin.com.

P F   Beware of scams during holidays Whether you’re trekking to the mall or shopping online, be aware of potential holiday scams and financial missteps. Here are some tips: • Shop from a list: To avoid impulse buys, write down the people you’re buying for and how much you can spend for each person. • Make it: baking, crafting, sewing, woodworking. A homemade gift from the heart might not break your bank. • Skip the plastic: To stay within budget, ditch the credit card and use cash. Withdraw what you can comfortably spend; when it’s gone, head home. • Credit vs. debit: A credit card can be safer than a debit card. Most credit cards offer better protection if a card is lost or stolen, or if an online purchase doesn’t arrive. But if using credit cards, think ahead to avoid piling up holiday debt. • Watch your wallet: Keep your ID and credit cards inside a secure purse or pocket. Don’t get distracted or let credit cards out of your sight at the counter. Keep receipts in one place for easy returns. • At the ATM: When withdrawing cash, be aware of your surroundings and passers-by. If something looks odd on the ATM itself, notify the bank or business. • Give wisely: There are many worthwhile, needy causes seeking donations this time of year. Whether you’re asked by phone, mail, online or at a shopping center, be sure the donor is legitimate. Check charities with the Better Business Bureau (www. bbb.org). • Don’t get scammed: Some scams are holidayrelated, others tried and true. A Sacramento, Calif., woman recently fell for a classic scam in which a Canadian caller persuaded her to wire $6,500 by posing as a grandson in financial distress. If you get such a call or e-mail, verify the situation with family, friends or your bank. • Be online-savvy: Look for deals at sites like Dealnews.com and Pricegrabber.com, as well as your favorite retailers. Confirm the site is legitimate: Look for a padlock symbol and be sure there’s an “https” in the browser when making a payment. Check if the store name is spelled correctly. The more safety indicators, the better. • Use your cell: Cell phones can help you compare prices and access coupons while shopping. Download apps, from sites like RedLaser and ShopSavvy.mobi, that let you scan bar codes and get product reviews, instore discounts and competing prices from other retailers. • Be Wi-Fi wary: Browse but don’t buy when using public WiFi connections to avoid hackers who could steal your financial info. • Don’t get suckered: If you’re buying $50 worth of merchandise but need to spend $75 to get free shipping, be sure you really want that extra $25 purchase.

DEFERRING TO THE DEBIT CARD

Gifts less likely to be paid for with credit this season Consumer trend could be bad news for retailers

The impact can be startling: When people use cash during the holidays, their average purchase is $41. With a credit card, they spend an average of $87 per transaction, Beemer said. “The difference in the amount is huge,” he said. According to the National Retail Federation, 27.6 percent of shoppers polled said they will use their credit cards as the primary payment for holiday gifts, the lowest percentage since 2002. Beemer said his surveys show just 12 percent to 15 percent of people say they’ll pay with credit cards this year. “When they’ve got cash, they only have so much money they can spend,” he said. “When they’re using the credit cards, they’re not under that control.” And shoppers are increasingly switching to cash, debit and check cards as their main source of payment. The top two reasons for using cash are to avoid accruing more debt and to stay within a holiday budget, according to USAA, a financial company that polled 1,014 adults on their

HOW TO AVOID SHIPPING FEES

In the post-recession shopping world where impulse buying has fallen by the wayside, retailers are doing their best to remove any obstacle that could make consumers think twice before opening their wallets. So it is little wonder that free shipping deals are spreading this holiday season. As merchants head into the biggest shopping months of the year, waiving shipping fees lets them capture a piece of holiday budgets. Indeed, 85 percent of online retailers plan to offer free shipping at some point this holiday season, up from 79 percent last year, according to the National Retail Federation. What’s more, one-third of online merchants expect to offer free shipping deals sooner this year, and 36 percent say their budget for free shipping is higher than last holiday season, the New York-based retail trade group said.

Spend less with cash

By Sandra M. Jones Chicago Tribune

By Sara K. Clarke Courtney McCall hasn’t started her holiday shopping yet, but when she does, she’ll likely pull out her debit card. The Orlando, Fla., woman knows that using that form of payment will help her spend only the money she actually has. Consumers are expected to lay off the credit cards this year and stick to their guns when it comes to the holiday spending, something that could have a big impact on retail sales. “If consumers follow this strategy … you’re going to see much lower sales at the retail stores,” said Britt Beemer, Orlando-based chairman of America’s Research Group, a retail polling company. Beemer said he saw a remarkably low number of people who are planning to use credit cards for their purchases this holiday season.

Intent on winning over shoppers, more ship for free • Before you make an online purchase, check your deal site for free shipping coupons. Or Google the store name along with the phrase “free shipping” to check for deals. • Sign up for your favorite retailers’ e-mail news alerts, Twitter feeds and Facebook updates. Merchants like to give special deals such as free shipping to their best customers. • Even if a free shipping offer has expired, call or e-mail the retailer’s customer service department and ask whether the offer can be extended. Many times retailers will make the offer available to complete the sale. • When shopping at major chain stores, check whether you can buy online and pick up the order at the store. • Place orders Dec. 17, when an estimated 1,000 merchants will offer free shipping for one day with guaranteed arrival by Christmas Eve. Minimum purchase amounts may apply. See http://www. freeshippingday.com for participating retailers.

‘No reason’ to pay The Associated Press ile photo

After learning some hard lessons, fewer shoppers are expected to use credit cards to purchase gifts this holiday season, opting for cash instead.

“If consumers follow this strategy … you’re going to see much lower sales at the retail stores.” — Britt Beemer, Orlando-based chairman of America’s Research Group holiday intentions. Its survey found that 76 percent of those planning to set a holiday budget indicated they will stick to it this year, compared with 56 percent a year ago. “The survey findings indicated that adopting better money habits as a result of the Great Recession isn’t a fad, but more of a long-term trend,” said Joseph Montanaro, a financial planner with USAA.

Strategic use Some shoppers say they’re using credit — but strategically. “You get certain guarantees with a credit card. If you get (scammed) or whatever, you can go back to MasterCard or Visa, and they usually give you a little help,” said Robert Downes,

an Orlando resident who plans to do most of his shopping from a catalog. “I try to pay them off right away,” Meanwhile, retailers continued to offer shopping strategies designed to help customers handle their holiday finances. Sears and Kmart are offering layaway again this year, while Babies R Us and Toys R Us offer layaway for certain big-ticket items.

Find coupons Another creative approach to paying for the holidays? Coupons. Josh Elledge stocks up on products for free or cheap using discounts and coupons, from baby supplies for new parents to cashews for his dad. Elledge, who runs SavingsAngel.com, an Orlando-based coupon service, said the best thing to use coupons on is consumables, including just about anything you can put in your grocery cart. “I’ve actually been buying stocking stuffers throughout the year,” Elledge said. “If you’re a friend of mine or a relative, you’re constantly getting things like free razors.”

“There’s no reason to pay for free shipping around the holidays,” said Sucharita Mulpuru, principal analyst at Forrester Research, a Cambridge, Mass.based technology research firm. “Most merchants I talk to offer free shipping because it’s about keeping up with the competition and ensuring you don’t lose any sales during this very critical time.” Best Buy is among the latest to enter the free-shipping arena. The consumer electronics chain will offer free online shipping through Dec. 21 on hundreds of thousands of items including CDs, Blu-ray and DVD movies, gaming software and accessories. The offer excludes laptop and netbook computers, video game hardware and Apple iPads and iPods. Wal-Mart recently unveiled free shipping on its Web site with no minimum purchase on almost 60,000 items, including many toys and electronics. The offer, the first of its kind for the world’s largest retailer, is slated to run through Dec. 21. Most merchants are lowering the minimum purchase price to qualify for free shipping to $25 to $40, from last year’s $50 minimum. But few have no minimum purchase requirement. “My belief is that we’re going to continue the evolution to free shipping for everything at some point,” said Kevin Strawbridge, president of online sav-

ings hub DealTaker.com, which tracks sales at 2,400 retailers nationwide. Gap Inc. is one retailer that appears to agree. The specialty store chain disclosed in October that it plans to launch an everyday free-shipping option in 2011 across all its brands — Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Athleta — for orders of at least $50. (Piperlime, Gap’s online shoe division, already offers free shipping on all purchases.) “The recession has accelerated the consumer deal-making behavior, whether it’s discounts or coupons or free shipping,” said Andrew Lipsman, director of industry analysis at comScore Inc., a Chicago-based digital market research firm. “As they learn the behavior, they’re less likely to move away from it, even as the economy rebounds. It becomes an expectation. It’s the cost of doing business.”

Retailers sweeten rewards deals for holiday shoppers By Nate Jackson Los Angeles Times

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, several retailers have sweetened the deals on their rewards cards and loyalty programs. The goal: to cater to the deal addiction of cashstrapped customers. Toys R Us Inc. recently announced it was tripling its Rewards R Us program, offering 10 percent back on purchases made in stores or online through Christmas Eve. Target Corp.’s RED card program is upping its ante to 5 percent back on merchandise. GameStop Corp., a leading video game retailer, has unleashed its Power Up Rewards program, a first for the company. So why are retailers laying on the largess this holiday season? They’re trying to make up for low sales during previous months and keep shoppers coming to them rather than to rivals, experts said. “Retailers are looking to their loyalty initiatives as a potential way to increase sales and increase foot traffic to their stores leading up to and through the holiday season,” said Dennis Armbruster, vice president of Loyalty One, a company that de-

velops loyalty programs for Fortune 1000 clients including Toys R Us, J.C. Penney Co. and Best Buy Co. GameStop rolled out its Power Up Rewards program after positive consumer tests in the summer, said Mike Hogan, senior vice president of marketing for the Grapevine, Texas, company. Aiming for those seeking immediate gratification, GameStop’s program gives customers benefits before they even buy anything. Members can choose between the free version of the program or paying $14.99 to join Power Up Pro. The paid rewards card offers more year-round deals and discounts than the free version, such as 10 percent off on used games and a free subscription to Game Informer magazine. Both versions offer 500 points just for signing up, which can be redeemed for items. Shoppers will find that there’s often a catch. For instance, the 10 percent Toys R Us rebates are paid in — what else? — “R Us Dollars” that can be spent only at the toy retailer. Still, it triples the program’s usual offering of $5 R Us Dollars for every $150 spent during select periods.

We have access to both an air tanker and some of the necessary aerial assets,” she said. “We would have to see how everyone wanted to come on board with it. But we’re interested,” Garnick said. Carol Moorehead, COCC dean for continuing education and extended learning, said it takes a lot of planning and research to create a new program through the college. But it’s feasible, she said. “It’s certainly a potential opportunity we would be very willing to explore,” she said.

Pearson said he also is trying to create an internship program that could work with high school and community college students. “My vision is, a high school kid is working on a program like that gets excited for a potential career in heavy aircraft maintenance,” Pearson said.

ally serious internal discussions about this at Apple after that, but we haven’t gotten any traction,” Shapiro said. Earlier this year, in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti, Apple itself solicited donations for the American Red Cross through iTunes, establishing what some regarded as a precedent for iPhone-assisted donations. That increased speculation that the real issue was money. Apple takes a 30 percent slice of purchases made from the App Store, an amount that would be frowned upon if it were to be taken out of a charitable donation. In August, eBay’s PayPal unit introduced a donation feature that enabled charitable gifts through its app for the iPhone, teaming up with MissionFish, which helps nonprofits raise money on eBay. MissionFish handled all the administrative chores required to ensure donations received proper documentation and went to the right, properly vetted nonprofits. Just two months later, Apple demanded that PayPal eliminate the donation system from its app. Clam Lorenz, vice president of operations at MissionFish, said roughly $10,000 had been raised in that time in the United States, Canada and Britain, in donations averaging $10. “We proved it’s a solution that offers the user choice and flexibility and provides a dramatic cost benefit for nonprofits compared to what’s available in text-based giving,” Lorenz said. Anuj Nayar, a spokesman for PayPal, said it was on the brink of introducing a similar feature — for its Android app.

An Apple spokeswoman, Trudy Muller, declined to explain the rationale for banning charitable solicitations via apps, saying only, “We are proud to have many applications on our App Store which accept charitable donations via their websites.” Kanter and others acknowledge that allowing donations through apps might present challenges. “One of Apple’s major objections has been that if donations were to go through its payment mechanism, it would have to be in the business of managing and distributing funds and verifying charities as well,” said Jake Shapiro, executive director of Public Radio Exchange, or PRX, an online nonprofit marketplace for licensing and distributing public radio programming. PRX has developed iPhone apps for many public radio stations and programs, like WBUR and “This American Life,” and Shapiro said apps had the potential to become a “core revenue source” for those organizations. He said he and a group of other executives from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting met with Eddy Cue, the Apple executive in charge of iTunes, the umbrella under which the App Store operates, three years ago. “We heard there were re-

THE BULLETIN • Thursday, December 9, 2010 B5

Tide Continued from B1 “The power of our brands represents disruptive innovation in these industries,” said Nathan Estruth, vice president for FutureWorks, P&G’s entrepreneurial arm. “Imagine getting to start my new business with the power of Tide.” And the lure of its fragrance. Procter & Gamble plans to infuse the stores and its dry cleaning fluids with the scent of the brand that’s been cozily familiar to generations of households. Among the Tide believers is Rick DeAngelis, a 40-year-old who is planning to open a franchise in suburban Cincinnati next year. “It’s been a trusted name in laundry for 60 years,” he said. “It’s almost synonymous with laundry.”

Local businesses already complaining

Tom Uhlman / New York Times News Service

An employee cleans clothes at a Tide Dry Cleaners in Mason, Ohio. With more than 800,000 Facebook fans and legions of loyal customers, Proctor & Gamble hopes the brand name will draw people into the franchise stores, which provide drive-through service, 24-hour pickup and environmentally benign cleaning methods.

Already, some local dry cleaners are complaining about the new gorilla on the block, backed by a corporation with roughly $80 billion in annual net sales. Robert Tran, who owns Monroe Dry Cleaning here in Mason, said his business was off more than 50 percent since a new Tide store opened down the street at the end of October. Customers are being drawn to the Tide store by discounts and giveaways, like P&G products and gift cards, he said. “There is no way I can afford that,” he said. “All my customers just left without giving me a chance to say, ‘Hey, check the quality.’ ” But for Tide to become synonymous with dry cleaning too, Procter & Gamble will have to overcome problems that have undone other upstarts. The dry cleaning industry has been roiled by unemployment and economic woes, and hurt by a continuing trend toward more casual work clothes. Competition is fierce, and customers can be prickly: woe to the dry cleaner that ruins a favorite dress, even if it was cheaply made and purchased decades ago. Sanjiv Mehra, who oversaw a short-lived effort by Unilever to break into the dry cleaning business about a decade ago, said the key to success was figuring out a way to do it cheaper or significantly better than the momand-pop stores that dominate the industry. At the end of the day, Unilever decided it couldn’t do either. Procter & Gamble has dabbled in dry cleaning before. In the late

1990s it introduced Dryel, an athome dry cleaning product that rattled local dry cleaners, who feared they would lose business. But Dryel was considered a disappointment, and P&G sold it in 2008. In 2000, it opened several stores in suburban Atlanta, called Juvian, that offered athome pickup and delivery of laundry and dry cleaning. The stores were eventually closed. Four years ago, FutureWorks began considering franchise opportunities, looking for industries where ownership was fragmented and consumers weren’t satisfied. It came up with a 3inch binder of ideas.

Mr. Clean Car Wash The first one to get a green light? Car washes festooned with Mr. Clean, P&G’s popular cleaning product. There are now 16 Mr. Clean Car Washes, including one here in Mason that includes Wi-Fi, televisions and spray guns that children can aim at cars passing through the wash. Of course, Mr. Clean products are for sale too. Dry cleaning, a roughly $8 billion-a-year industry, was second. Research showed that consumers thought the quality of dry cleaners was inconsistent, hours were inconvenient and prices rarely displayed. Plus, many dry cleaner stores were dingy, stifling hot and smelled of chemicals, not unlike a sweat shop, of-

ficials said. Estruth said his team studied the failed efforts of others as it devised a business plan for Tide Dry Cleaners. The early results are promising: A pilot store in suburban Kansas City generated more than $1 million in annual sales, roughly four times the industry average. There are now four Tide Dry Cleaners outlets, and the company plans to expand into a dozen or so more markets. “If we don’t have compelling unit-level economics, it doesn’t matter how strong the brand is,” said William Van Epps, a former Papa John’s Pizza executive who was hired to run Procter & Gamble’s franchises. In a tour of a newly opened store in Mason, P&G officials explained why they believed they had resolved the dry cleaning issues that make consumers so unhappy. At 3,000 square feet, the store is larger than most dry cleaners, and it is painted in Tide’s distinctive orange hue. Cleaning is done on the premises, with Tide being used on garments that are laundered. Silicon-based detergents are used to dry clean garments, though Tide’s fragrance is added in the process. Huge vents suck out heat and odors, keeping the store cool and smelling like — what else? — Tide. The store is staffed with 15 to 18 employees, wearing Tide golf shirts. Lockers near the entrance allow customers to pick up and

drop off clothes around the clock. Prices are displayed above the counter (a laundered shirt is $2.25; a dry cleaned suit is $13, about average in the industry). During a recent weekday, a steady stream of customers gave the Tide store a try.

Not an easy business Todd Krasnow, a former Staples executive, remembers the heady days when he opened his own dry cleaning chain in 1998. Called Zoots, it offered 24-hour pickup, drive-through service and environmentally friendly detergents, and it eventually grew to 70 stores. But, as the economy soured, so did demand for dry cleaning, putting downward pressure on prices, he said. Consumers would take their business elsewhere or demand a refund if something was damaged, even if Zoots wasn’t to blame. “We underestimated what made it a truly challenging business,” Krasnow said. “Even if you did a really good job, there are plenty of problems.” Zoots was sold in 2008. Krasnow, now a venture capitalist, said he still got a few calls a month from investors or recent business school graduates who believed they had found a way to make a killing in dry cleaning. He wishes them luck. “People think it is easier to do it better,” he said. “And it’s very, very difficult.”

Little discussion on DA contract Deschutes County commissioners delay vote until Dec. 15 By Erin Golden The Bulletin

A public hearing on a proposed labor contract between Deschutes County and a deputy district attorneys’ union drew comments from just two people Wednesday. Deschutes County commissioners had initially planned to vote on the contract this week, but de-

layed a formal decision until Dec. 15. Both speakers at Wednesday’s meeting urged the commission to avoid limiting the power of the district attorney with an agreement that lays out specific rules for when he or she can fire or discipline staff members. The issue of hiring and firing became a hot topic after District Attorney-elect Patrick Flaherty indicated he planned staffing shake-ups in the office. The proposed contract includes a “justcause” provision, which would require Flaherty to follow specific procedures before terminating

union members — and only fire them for specific reasons. Commissioners did not say how they would vote, but some said they thought the county and union came up with a fair contract. “I think the deputy district attorneys came into this and they had some major concerns, but I think they bargained in good faith, and I think the county bargained in good faith,” said Commissioner Dennis Luke, who added that the contract is “not perfect from either side,” but a good compromise. County Administrator Dave Kanner said the bargaining

process occurred over a shorter timeline than most contract negotiations — and that it didn’t include back-and-forth on some issues that are usually at the top of union members’ wish lists. “Negotiations were, to say the least, unusual in that the employee unit quickly made it clear that there was only one issue that mattered to them and that they would pretty much accept anything else we put into the contract as long as we accept their one issue,” he said. “And that one issue was just cause.” See DA / C5

Learning to give a helping hand Pilot Butte students study CPR in science class By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

K

arl Schwarz is a Red Cross volunteer. He’s also a science teacher at Pilot Butte Middle School, and each year he combines the two in a hands-on lesson for his advanced science classes. Students are learning CPR, first aid and how to use defibrillators. It’s a practical lesson, and while the students may be in seventh and eighth grades, they’re taking their studies seriously. On Tuesday, Schwarz’s students sat quietly while he reviewed the steps for per-

forming CPR. They corrected him when he made mistakes and answered his questions quickly and accurately. Dalton Wood, 14, isn’t sure why he’s learning CPR in science class, but he’s happy about it. “I am very glad because I get to learn how to do this on a real person,” he said. “If someone falls over and faints in front of me, I can actually help them in real life.” They’re studying CPR as part of a life science unit on how different body systems work together and what happens when one of them stops working properly. The class also uses math to figure out

A Bend man’s conviction for riding his bicycle while intoxicated was enough to cause him to lose his driver’s license, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday. In 2008, Franklin David Abbey, who had previous DUII convictions in 1993 and 1998, pleaded guilty to drunken driving following a drunken biking incident. He was convicted in January 2009. Under Oregon law, a person who is convicted of drunken driving on three separate occasions can have his or her driver’s license permanently revoked. And because riding a bicycle while drunk falls under the statute for DUIIs, a Deschutes County judge ruled that Abbey’s third conviction was enough to take his license. In October, Abbey, now 46, appealed the decision. He argued that it was unconstitutional to consider a biking-related DUII as one of the three

strikes against him because a driver’s license is not required to ride a bike. On Wednesday, the Oregon Court of Appeals upheld Deschutes County Circuit Court Judge Barbara Haslinger’s decision, noting that there is not a provision in state law setting separate standards for bikingrelated DUIIs. Tony Green, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Justice, said he could not comment on the ruling. Shawn Wiley, a chief deputy defender in the Office of Public Defense Services, which represented Abbey, said he was disappointed with the court’s decision. “We’re deciding whether to petition the Oregon Supreme Court to review the Court of Appeals decision,” he said. “We don’t believe the Legislature intended a conviction for driving a bicycle under the influence to serve as a lifetime revocation of one’s driving privileges.” Wiley said he does not believe Abbey is prohibited from riding a bicycle, though he has lost his driver’s license.

La Pine City Council postpones decision on biomass power plant Biogreen unlikely to proceed with proposed project without local approval by year’s end By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

The La Pine City Council will decide the fate of a proposed biomass power plant Dec. 29, two days before a deadline that could make the difference in whether it is ever built. Councilors heard 2½ hours of testimony at a public hearing on the proposed Biogreen Sustainable Energy power plant

Wednesday night, but were unable to decide whether the project should be allowed to go forward. Wednesday’s hearing was a continuation of a public hearing that began Nov. 16 as a result of an appeal filed by John Williams of Portland. Williams, a frequent opponent of power projects, asserts an initial approval by the Deschutes County Community Develop-

ment Department failed to adequately consider the plant’s visual, noise and traffic impacts on the surrounding neighborhood. The proposed plant would be built in the La Pine Industrial Park off Reed Road on the east edge of the city, and would generate 24.9 megawatts of electricity, enough to power 20,000 homes. Representatives of Biogreen have said their project is unlikely to go forward if final local approval is not secured by the end of the year. The project’s financial viability is largely dependent on alternative energy tax credits

that were approved as part of the 2009 federal stimulus, and will expire at the end of 2010. Wednesday, Williams and his attorney, Bruce White of Bend, and Biogreen representatives offered up alternative versions of how the plant would affect the surrounding area, including dueling studies on traffic and noise. Williams said the city should not approve Biogreen’s application unless the company agrees to install certain pieces of inaudible equipment and restrict truck traffic to existing high-

capacity roads. No decision should be made until the state Department of Environmental Quality air quality permit is issued, he said Liz Fancher, an attorney representing Biogreen, said the DEQ permit is in draft form and should be issued soon, and questioned the credentials of the consultant supporting Williams’ assertions about noise. Rob Broberg, president of Biogreen, said his company has already committed to keeping its trucks off side roads and will be scheduling shift changes to

minimize traffic. He suggested additional development in the industrial park will help the city raise the funds needed to address congestion at the intersection of U.S. Highway 97 and Reed Road. A handful of citizens who testified at the meeting questioned Williams’ documented ties to labor unions — Broberg has said Williams’ actual goal is an agreement that will ensure all construction at the estimated $75 million plant will be done by union labor.

Mad about mushrooms Washington expert works to unlock secrets of fungus By Maureen O’Hagan The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — Paul Stamets likes to proclaim that mushrooms will save the world. To hear him tell it, they can soak up oil spills and filter contaminated streams, boost your immune system and control pests, lower cholesterol and make you smarter. Part Willy Wonka and part mad scientist, the Shelton, Wash., man has been studying fungus for nearly four decades. He hunts it, cultures it and grows it. He puts it under microscopes and dreams up experiments on it. He sells it, in many different forms, for many different uses. He also fries it up and eats it for dinner. “That’s the unusual thing about Paul,� said James Nowak, a Seattle glassblower and avid mushroomer. “He’s able to discover these things. He’s really brilliant. He’s always thinking outside the box.� In the small but wildly passionate world of mushrooming, Stamets is a big name. Talk to him long enough, however, and a certain thought pops into your head. Maybe it’s when he says he supplied government agencies with mushroom cultures for testing as anti-terrorism tools. Maybe it’s when he says he’s involved in research on breast cancer and tuberculosis. Or when you learn he is considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on hallucinogenic mushrooms. At some point, you’re going to wonder if he’s, well ... full of it. Then you start looking into his claims. And one by one, they seem to check out.

‘He’s a visionary’ Stamets, 55, neither works for a university nor has an advanced degree, but he holds three U.S. patents. Sometimes he speaks so fast, and so loftily, it’s hard to follow. In 2008 he gave a talk for an internationally known, thought-provoking lecture series known as TED that began like this: “I love a challenge, and saving the Earth is probably a good one.� He’s prone to the “audacious statement,� laughed John Goldman, treasurer of

John Lok / Seattle Times

Paul Stamets, a renowned expert on mushrooms, nurtures “otherworldly� fungi in “grow rooms� near his home in Shelton, Wash. the Puget Sound Mycological Society. “But he really believes it. Like I say, he’s a visionary.� Most mushroom businesses focus on one of two things: fresh or dried. Not Stamets’. He’s got so much going on, it’s easy to lose track. He runs his company, Fungi Perfecti, from a wooded compound in Mason County. Outside the gates, several signs warn visitors they’re being videotaped or that they had better have an appointment. It seems a bit excessive. Back in the 1980s, he started selling grow-your-own-mushroom kits. Each kit costs about $25 and produces 1 to 2 pounds of gourmet mushrooms. He has sold tens of thousands of them, many through ads in gardening magazines. It’s pretty straightforward.

‘Like a fantasy world’ Walk into one of Stamets’ “grow rooms,� however, and things get otherworldly. The ceiling is white, and the air is cool. Mist blows from fans that periodically kick on with a giant whoosh. There are tall shelves, rows and rows of them, stacked with blocks of white stuff. It’s mycelium — essentially the mushrooms’ root structure. From the blocks, alien life-forms burst forth every which way. The aliens are mushrooms. Slimy namekos. Gray maitakes, almost like brains. Shaggy white balls called lion’s manes. Reishis, looking like red knobs of ginger with flying saucers swooping from the top. Stamets calls them Starship Enterprise mushrooms. “It’s like a fantasy world down there,� Nowak said. Some of these mushrooms will be dried and made into extracts or teas. Others are being tested to see how well they grow or how they taste. To run his operation, which

First Palestinian uprising begins in 1987

also includes Host Defense, a line of mushroom-based capsules sold as nutritional supplements, Stamets employs 41 people. He said business is up 45 percent over last year. Things weren’t always this good, said Jim Gouin, a longtime employee. “A lot of us were eating rice and mushrooms out of the grow room for a long time,� he said. When he can, Stamets and his wife, Dusty Yao, go out in the old-growth and collect. Sometimes they find chanterelles or matsutakes for eating. Sometimes they find rare species that he’ll sample, put in a dish, and save for further research. Sometimes they find things that just plain fascinate. Recently, Stamets posted a YouTube video of himself spotting a cordyceps sprouting from a buried truffle. He’d never found this before. “This is extraordinarily cool,� he says in the video. “I mean� — he draws a breath, touching a hand to his chest — “this is mycological history in the making.� He posted the video on a Sunday. By Monday morning, the clip had hundreds of views.

Hallucinogenic history Stamets gives regular seminars on the finer points of cultivating, hunting and identifying mushrooms. He has written six books on the subject, including two, totaling some 400 pages, on the hallucinogenic varieties, known as psilocybes. That has made some mycologists hold him at arm’s length. Stamets doesn’t talk much about psychedelic mushrooms anymore, and his website makes it clear he isn’t selling them. But he does admit his obsession with mushrooms began with a trip. When he was 19 or 20 years old, he found himself alone, in a lightning storm, and high on

He thinks mushrooms are the answer to pretty much everything. When he had carpenter ants in his house, he figured he’d try mycelium on them. He got a patent for a pesticide that attracts the bugs to a natural poison. He devised “mycofilters� — sacks filled with wood chips and mycelium — to filter contaminated water. Two years ago, Mason County decided to give them a try on contaminated drainage ditches, and officials there are pleased with the results. The ideas keep coming. But still ... mushrooms for biodefense? C’mon. Ask him about it, and he starts throwing around so many fancy terms that it’s impossible to follow. And yet as an acronymwielding Army spokeswoman explained: “He supplied some compounds under the NIAID/ USAMRIID SARS/Poxvirus testing program.� In English: Army researchers tested Stamets’ mushroom extracts as a defense against SARS and smallpox, which could be used as biological weapons.

psilocybes. He decided to climb a tree. “I don’t recommend it,� he said of the experience. Back then, he had a “profound stuttering habit.� Years of therapy didn’t work. But in that tree, for what seemed like hours, he repeated to himself, “Stop stuttering now.� In a day, he said, his stuttering disappeared. For years, Stamets has been fascinated with the hivelike agarikon, a rare mushroom that lives on the tops of old-growth trees in the Pacific Northwest. They can withstand gale-force winds and more than 100 inches of rain a year, and they don’t rot. They can live up to 100 years. They’re survivors. “Gee,� Stamets often has thought, “it might have some very good antiviral properties.� Not just the agarikon, though. He sees medicine in all manner of fungus. Science just needs to match the right mushroom with the right disease. It’s a potential gold mine. “I don’t want to over-exaggerate, but we have the beginnings of a myco-pharmacy here if we find something that’s not been discovered,� he said.

O O  B UO student charged in OSU stadium turf fire CORVALLIS — A University of Oregon student is facing charges for artificial turf burned and damaged at the Oregon State University football stadium after Oregon won the rival “Civil War” game last weekend. The Oregon State Police said Wednesday that troopers arrested 20-year-old Joshua David Britton Tuesday night at an apartment in Eugene. State police said they received more than 50 tips based on a photo and video of an unidentified young man holding what appeared to be a burning shirt at Reser Stadium in Corvallis after the Oregon victory on Saturday. Troopers said Britton was booked in Benton County on charges that include riot, criminal mischief and reckless burning.

Schools offered policy for religious clothing PORTLAND — The state labor commissioner and the state school superintendent have teamed up to create a model policy for religious clothing in Oregon schools. Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian and Superintendent of Public Instruction Susan Castillo said the policy will help school districts apply a new Oregon law on religious clothing. A law banning teachers from wearing any religious clothing or jewelry in schools had been on the books in Oregon for nearly a century. Avakian and Castillo called for a repeal of the law in a joint letter to the Legislature last year, and it was repealed early this year. Avakian and Castillo say the model policy provides guidance on how teachers and other school staff can express their religious beliefs without endorsing any particular belief in the classroom.

BANK BOMBING TRIAL

Father, son guilty on all 18 counts Sentencing phase to begin today By Jonathan J. Cooper Associated Press

SALEM — A father and son were convicted Wednesday of planting a bank bomb that killed two police officers in a botched robbery that prosecutors said was motivated by plans to build a militia in case newly elected President Barack Obama cracked down on their gun rights. A Marion County Circuit Court jury deliberated for less than a day before finding both Bruce Turnidge and his son, Joshua Turnidge, guilty on all 18 counts, which included aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and assault charges. Both stood silently as the verdicts were read. The convictions send the trial into a penalty phase that begins today, when the jury will decide whether to send the men to death row. Other sentencing options include life in prison with the possibility of parole after 30 years or life sentences with no parole. Kelly Mix, a brother-in-law of one of the officers killed, Woodburn Police Capt. Tom Tennant, said he was pleased with the verdict but not surprised. “For us, it doesn’t change the fact that my brother-in-law is dead,” Mix told The Oregonian. “I’m not opposed to the death penalty if the jury thinks that’s the right punishment.” The homemade bomb exploded at the West Coast Bank in Woodburn less than two weeks before Christmas 2008, killing a police bomb technician who was trying to dismantle it, as well as Tennant, who was helping.

sell, lost a leg in the explosion, which authorities say was part of an attempt to rob the bank. Prosecutors had presented evidence that the Turnidges harbored fantasies of building bombs, robbing banks and starting a militia. They hatched the bank robbery plan because they needed money to keep their biodiesel company afloat, prosecutors said. Witnesses testified that Bruce Turnidge, who grew up in a farming family in the Willamette Valley but could not make a go of farming himself, wanted to live in a tent city with people who shared his political beliefs but couldn’t get money to build an arms stockpile for a militia. According to testimony, father and son exulted in the Oklahoma City bombing, and Bruce Turnidge viewed Timothy McVeigh as a hero. Prosecutors also said both men believed the Obama administration would crack down on their rights to own guns. The attack occurred about a month after Obama was elected. “Obviously the jury believes it,” Mix told the Statesman Journal. “These are two very dangerous people who had absolutely no regard for their actions.” The father and son turned against each other during the trial, but their lawyers came

together to throw the blame for detonating the blast on state police bomb technician William Hakim, who mistakenly identified the green-painted metal box as a hoax. A bank employee testified Hakim was hammering and prying on the box when it exploded. Prosecutors argued that a stray radio signal, perhaps from a passing trucker, activated a remote-controlled device that triggered the bomb. “Bill Hakim, Tom, Chief Russell saved lives,” Joanna Mix, Tennant’s sister, told the Statesman Journal. “Officer Hakim was doing his job to the best of his ability. Tom was assisting him to the best of his ability, and that’s what they both did and loved about their jobs — trying to help. I was afraid the jury wouldn’t see that.” Bruce Turnidge did not take the stand, but family members denied he hated police or held extremist political views. Prosecutors presented evidence that the Turnidges planted the bomb outside the West Coast Bank, then phoned in a threat to another bank next door, where they had left a cell phone and garbage bags to handle their demands for money. The bomb went unnoticed for hours. Joshua Turnidge testified that he bought two cell phones and materials used to build the bomb without knowing his father planned to use them to rob a bank. He said he only figured out what happened after hearing his father muttering that no one was supposed to get hurt. If sentenced to death, the Turnidges would have automatic appeals to the Oregon Supreme Court, which would trigger a judicial review that could last decades.

Republicans to pay for partial recount in governor’s race By TIM FOUGHT Associated Press

PORTLAND — Oregon Republicans say they’ll pay a few thousand dollars for a recount of the ballots in the governor’s race from three Multnomah County precincts. It’ll be done Monday. The ballots in question aren’t enough to change the outcome of the race between winning

Democrat John Kitzhaber and Republican Chris Dudley. But Republican Chairman Bob Tiernan said Wednesday that if enough irregularities are found, the party could seek a larger recount. Mostly, Tiernan says, the party wants assurance the results from Multnomah County, a Democratic stronghold, are reliable.

He says party observers have seen lax ballot box and computer security.

PERS study picks apart suggested pension cuts By Dennis Thompson Jr. Statesman Journal

SALEM — Cuts to Oregon state workers’ pension plans that have been recommended by Gov. Ted Kulongoski’s Reset Cabinet could result in more than $511 million in savings to the state during the 2011-13 biennium. But they also would create sharp reductions in public employees’ pay and retirees’ benefits, according to an analysis produced by the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System. The PERS report concludes that the steps set forth by the Reset Cabinet would: • Lower state workers’ annual wages or total compensation by 6 percent or more. • Reduce annual benefits of the 15 percent of state retirees who have relocated out-of-state by about 6 percent. • Cut annual cost-of-living adjustments for about 42 percent of all state retirees.

The two major state workers’ unions already have come out against the Reset Cabinet’s recommendations, arguing that the experts have mistakenly offered draconian solutions for a budget deficit created by an economic down cycle. “We will want to sit down and work with the governor and the Legislature to figure out ways we can get from here to there,” said Ed Hershey, a spokesman of Service Employees International Union Local 503. “Some of those ways will involve short-term or sunsetted sacrifices. We’re not buying into the argument that this is a systemic problem.” Officials from the unions have said they do not expect incoming Gov. John Kitzhaber to follow the Reset Cabinet’s lead. However, the budget-cutting ideas offered by the panel are included in a number of possibilities that PERS staffers decided to analyze for the pension system’s board.

Interior secretary meets loggers, ecologists to resolve timber wars By Jeff Barnard Associated Press

GRANTS PASS — The Obama administration is working on a pair of pilot logging projects in southwestern Oregon that are designed to find a new way out of decades of conflict between timber jobs and spotted owls and salmon. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar met Wednesday in Washington, D.C., with veterans of the long-standing timber wars in Oregon, members of the Oregon congressional delegation, and federal agencies. They listened to forest ecology professors Norm Johnson of Oregon State University and Jerry Franklin of the University of Washington describe their ideas for a pair of large-scale forest restoration projects on U.S. Bureau of Land Management property that are also expected to produce a significant supply of logs for struggling mills. The so-called O&C lands,

formerly owned by the defunct Oregon & California Railroad and now administered by BLM, were once a leading source of timber as well as revenues for timber counties, but logging has never recovered from 1990s cutbacks to protect spotted owls and salmon. The Bush administration tried to boost logging in the region but could not get around environmental laws often enforced by conservation groups through lawsuits. Salazar jettisoned the Bush administration plan and, pressed by members of the Oregon delegation, has been trying to find a new way out of the longstanding morass. The primary goal of the pilot projects would be to restore healthy forests and fish and wildlife habitat, with the secondary goal of producing timber.

PORTLAND — A little girl who survived when her mother threw her and her younger brother off a Portland bridge has helped dedicate a new Portland Fire Bureau rescue boat named in the children’s honor. Trinity Smith is now 8 years old. Her 4-year-old brother, Eldon Smith, drowned when they were tossed into the Willamette River on May 23, 2009. On Tuesday, Trinity stood at the bow of the new Eldon Trinity fireboat with her father, Jason Smith, and grandparents as the vessel motored to the spot where she struggled to survive. While a firefighter held on to her coat, the little girl tossed a yellow Transformer toy and a handwritten note to her brother into the muddy water. Amanda Stott-Smith pleaded guilty last April to aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder and has been sentenced to at least 35 years in prison.

A wake-up call for Multnomah

M

ultnomah County is Oregon’s undisputed political engine. Without the county’s electoral clout, the corporate tax hikes imposed by Measure 67 would be his-

tory, business-friendly Chris Dudley would be the state’s next governor, and he’d be replacing business-friendly Ron Saxton. Unless, that is, Saxton had secured a second term. But how is Multnomah County as an economic engine? A handful of business groups, including the Portland Business Alliance and Associated Oregon Industries, commissioned a study to answer this question and released the results this week. The study compared economic performance in the four-county Portland metro area to that in various other metro areas, including Seattle. The Portland metro area includes three Oregon counties, Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah, and one Washington state county, Clark. The study also looked at Multnomah County specifically. For the Rose City, the results are decidedly thorny. For instance: • Over the past 40 years, per capita income in the Portland metro area exceeded income in the Seattle area only once — 1972. The gap has widened in 25 of the last 40 years, and by 2008 per capita income in Portland was 21 percent lower than in Seattle. • Had per capita income in the Portland metro area kept pace with its Seattle counterpart over the past 10 years, total personal income would have been almost $5.7 billion higher in the Portland metro area in 2008. • During 2007, the average resident of the Portland metro area reported 26 percent less in interest income, 38 percent less in dividend income and 47 percent less in net capital gains income than his counterpart in the Seattle metro area. • Multnomah County, the heart of the metro area, is also ground zero for its economic decay. Thirty years ago, it laid claim to over 50 percent of the personal income earned by all metro area residents. Now, it claims only 33 percent. • The study looked at private sector employment growth in 199 counties in Washington, Oregon, California and Idaho. But for Santa Clara, Calif., Multnomah County would have finished at the bottom of the heap. Between 1997 and 2009, the county lost more than 26,000 private sector jobs — though it did manage to gain more than 10,000 public sector jobs. • Oregon’s private sector weakness isn’t confined to Multnomah County, however. It’s “telling,” say the study’s authors, that the top 10 regional counties for private sector job creation include at least one from California, Nevada, Idaho and Washington — but not a single one from Oregon. The Beaver State’s best in this category is Washington County, in 16th place. The consequences of such stagnation — particularly wage stagnation — are well known to anyone who followed the campaigns of Republican

Without strong private-sector wage growth, it’s impossible to generate the income tax revenue needed to support government services, from schools to prisons. gubernatorial candidate Chris Dudley and Democratic treasurer candidate Ted Wheeler this fall. Without strong private-sector wage growth (not to mention private sector job growth), it’s impossible to generate the income tax revenue needed to support government services, from schools to prisons. To illustrate the point, the study estimates how much more money the state would have collected in 2008 if per capita personal income in the Portland metro area had matched that in the Seattle metro area. The general fund would have seen a boost of nearly $1.3 billion, and Multnomah County’s schools would have seen more than $86 million of that. The report is intended “to start a conversation among public and private leaders,” not to present a number of public policy recommendations designed to bolster the Portland metro area’s (and the state’s) economic competitiveness. Still, the public policy implications are obvious enough. If Oregonians want their state to become more economically competitive, they’ll have to adopt policies that encourage business creation and expansion. They’ll also have to amend policies that encourage ambitious and successful people to move (or stay) elsewhere — such as Washington. On this latter point, the study notes a trend identified in a 2009 study on the effects of tax rates. In every year between 1992 and 2006, people moving from the Portland metro area’s three Oregon counties to Clark County, its sole Washington county, had higher incomes than those moving the other way. This trend suggests “that Oregon’s high marginal income and capital gains taxes are a significant factor in outmigration from the tri-county area to Clark County, Washington.” You’d think that all Oregonians, but particularly those in Multnomah County, would like to reverse such damaging trends. But the necessary policy changes aren’t likely to happen without the cooperation of Multnomah County voters. As long as the state’s political engine acts as a brake on its economy, Oregonians are destined to watch their regional neighbors leave them in the dust.

My Nickel’s Worth Help feed hungry Fifty turkeys, 40 pounds of ham, 25 gallons of milk, 80 dozen eggs, 600 pancakes, 150 pounds of potatoes, 40 heads of assorted lettuce, 70 pies ... I think we can all agree that this is quite a shopping list! But that is just a sampling of what was needed to put on the recent Thanksgiving Day community meal at Bend’s Community Center. And it is exactly what will be needed again for the upcoming Christmas Day community meal. These two meals will be in addition to our regular Feed the Hungry program, which serves meals every Sunday to the homeless and less fortunate. During this time of severe economic hardship, and with cold weather now upon us, this is an appeal to please join us in this season of sharing. If you can help out in terms of food donations or volunteer time, it would be most appreciated. A cash donation of any size is especially welcome, as this allows us to supplement food donations for the holidays, and into the coming year. BCC is located at 1036 N.E. Fifth St., and it is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please contact us at 541312-2069. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity!

Government too big Hurrah for Carlson Sign Co. of Bend. The Bulletin’s Nov. 30 article about this company highlights a very successful

enterprise since 1948, now under the management of Peter Carlson, a thirdgeneration Carlson. The final question and answer in the interview says volumes and should give pause to elected officials of the City of Bend and Deschutes County. Q: “What is the biggest local government obstacle to your business?” A: “It’s a sad day when the cost of getting permits exceeds the cost of putting up a sign, but that’s what it’s come to.” Thanks for saying that, Peter. In my opinion, the role of government is to foster an environment in which private enterprise can flourish. Government has now become the biggest impediment to our economy and its future growth. What is the answer, you ask? Reduce the size of government. Dennis Harrison Redmond

Give to hungry For weeks now I have been trying to find some sort of solution to help feed our homeless and hungry and most especially the children, who are not only hungry but frightened and bewildered. Then it came to me, as I already do this. I believe most of you go to church. So, this week before Christmas put a note in the collection basket explaining that you will be sending your usual contribution to a charity that is feeding and taking care of our unfortunate brothers and sisters, such as the Shepherd’s House in Bend or my favorite, St. Vincent de Paul, right here in Redmond. And not to worry, the churches won’t be stressed, as they are a pretty big business. As a matter of fact, the better

thing to do would be to do this at least one week out of each month and really take care of our needy. And no, you won’t go to hell for this. ... As a matter of fact, it will give you even more points in heaven as Jesus did say, “Feed my sheep.” So, feel good and have a most blessed Christmas. Dorothy Bourgo Redmond

Salary statistics misleading The statistics you used in the editorial on wage freezes for federal employees were very misleading. Your article states that there are 696 federal employees in Deschutes County. Of that number, you claim that 22 (2 percent) make $100,000 or more and that 156 (22 percent) make $70,000 or more. (I added the percentages — it makes a huge difference in how the numbers are perceived.) Then, instead of comparing the top Deschutes County private employees’ average salaries to those numbers, you claimed that the average private-sector worker in Deschutes County made approximately $34,000 per year. That is like comparing apples to oranges! A proper comparison would show what the top 2 percent and 22 percent of private employees’ salaries were, or an average federal worker’s salary. Even more helpful would have been a like comparison of federal, state, county, city and private employees. Sure, it’s just an editorial, but I would hope that you would hold yourselves to a higher level of reporting. Cheryl Schadt Redmond

Obama’s move to center may salvage re-election prospects WASHINGTON — t took a month for Barack Obama to make clear what he has learned from the midterm election “shellacking,” but the time has not been wasted. Future political historians are likely to trace his recovery — and re-election, if that’s what happens — back to decisions made in December. In these last few days, he has regained the economic initiative from the victorious Republicans, separated himself from the left of his own party and staked a strong claim to the territory where national elections are fought and won: the independent center. In opting to accommodate reality by acceding to the Republican demand for maintaining all the Bush tax cuts and obtaining a better price than many expected for his concessions, Obama has done almost all that is possible at the moment to create a favorable economic environment for the 2012 campaign. Add in a South Korean trade pact of help to the rebounding auto industry and the Midwest, that key battleground where

Republicans romped in 2010, begins to look salvageable. Obama still faces great challenges — in managing the world hot spots from Afghanistan to North Korea to Iran, and the unresolved question of how to turn back the threat of runaway debt and deficits. But after a shaky period where his own leadership image became hazy, he has begun to regain focus as the pragmatic liberal that he is — not the hardline socialist Republicans make him out to be but a president far more practical and down to earth than his critics on the liberal flank of the Democratic Party. He has set the stage for follow-on proposals that can convert the cumbersome tax system into a growth-spurring mechanism — and force Republicans to explain and defend their preference for serving their wealthiest business backers. That is a winning posture for a president seeking a second term. Without resort to the obvious “triangulation” repositioning that Bill Clinton employed to recover from the Republi-

DAVID B R O D ER can resurgence in 1994 and set the stage for his own second-term win, Obama has managed to place himself where he wants to be: in the center of the American political spectrum. By yielding temporarily to the GOP on its insistence for preserving the topbracket tax cuts, Obama has avoided a larger threat to a greater number of voters: the hike in taxes that could easily have jeopardized a fragile economic recovery. In return, he won an extension of unemployment benefits and, more importantly, a temporary reduction in payroll taxes that will provide a large shot in the arm to economic growth. When their constituents see the fat-

ter paychecks, Democratic members of Congress will have a hard time sustaining their carping about the lost opportunity to engage the GOP in an old-fashioned campaign against the fat cats. Also, the $900 billion this deal will add to the national debt increases the pressure on Obama and Congress to undertake the kind of tough-love budgetary changes outlined by the presidential commission on deficits. But this simply improves the odds for tax reform, an effort that Obama is now perfectly positioned to lead. Expect to see the White House offering a plan to reduce individual and corporate income tax rates in return for purging the IRS code of the thousands of loopholes that benefit special interests. That will put House Republicans in a position where they have to choose between cooperating in giving Obama a major victory or accepting the opprobrium of defending the status quo against the wishes of tea party voters across the country. While opening that constituency to an Obama foray, the events of

the last few weeks have also signaled a clear breach between the president and increasingly unpopular left wing of his congressional party. The divorce from the Pelosi Democrats has been brewing for a long time, but it came visibly into view when so many House members whined about the tax and budget deal with the Republicans. If this wasn’t a Sister Souljah moment, it was at least comparable to Bill Clinton’s decision to sign the 1996 welfare reform bill passed by a Republican Congress — a step that sank Bob Dole’s presidential campaign before it really began. Obama used his news conference Tuesday to define himself, more clearly than ever before, as a raging moderate — a man who recognizes that compromise is the key to serving a broad and diverse set of constituencies, rather than fit some ideological standard of intellectual purity. This was the best showing for Obama in many months. David Broder is The Washington Post’s senior political writer.

Heda Kovaly wrote about life under totalitarianism By William Grimes New York Times News Service

Heda Margolius Kovaly, a Czech writer and translator whose memoir, “Under a Cruel Star,” described her imprisonment by the Nazis during World War II and her persecution by the Communists in the 1950s and became a classic account of life under totalitarianism, died Sunday at her home in Prague. She was 91. Her death was confirmed by Helen Epstein, who edited and helped translate the revised edition of her memoir. Kovaly (pronounced KO-vahlee), the daughter of prosperous Jews, found her world turned inside out with the German annexation of Czechoslovakia. With her family and her husband, Rudolf Margolius, she was deported to the Lodz ghetto in Poland in 1941 and then, in 1944, to Auschwitz, where her parents were sent to the gas chambers on their arrival.

Patty Byers, a former resident of Bend for 30 years, passed away on Friday, November 26. She returned to Illinois in 2005. Patty was born in Granite City, IL, to William & Elizabeth (Ulanski) Ashby on October 22, 1944. After returning home to Illinois, Patty worked in marketing at the Bunkerhill Gazette newspaper. While living in Bend, Patty was active at St. Francis Catholic Church and worked at their thrift shop until it closed. She worked at the Pill Box for a few years and was active at the Red Cross blood services in Central Oregon. A celebration of Patty’s life was held on Wednesday, December 1, at Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church, with a mass officiated by Father Tom Liebler.

He was 67. The cause was bile-duct cancer, John Gingrich, Luca’s man-

No public testimony will be taken at the City Council’s meeting on Dec. 29.

Continued from C1 In October, the board awarded Mikalson a three-year contract, the details of which the board approved Wednesday. Mikalson’s new salary also brings him closer to the 2009-10 salaries of superintendents at Oregon school districts with more than 4,000 students, according to data from the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators. Superintendents at those districts averaged $139,310 in annual salary, while the lowest earner in that group made $112,461, ac-

cording to the group. Redmond has more than 7,000 students. The district also will pay Mikalson $1,200 a month to cover his expenses, including travel and cell phone use. That amount is about what Fleming expensed each month, according to Erickson. Judy Newman, the Redmond Education Association president, congratulated Mikalson on his new contract during the meeting. The association is a union representing the district’s licensed staff, including teachers. “We support this decision,” Newman said. “And we’re very happy that you’re our leader.” The board also voted unani-

ager since 1970, said. Luca founded the Chamber Music Northwest summer festival in Portland and Context, a period-instrument group based in Houston, among other ensembles, but it was in New York that he established his own career, playing the virtuoso Romantic repertory in the late 1960s and early ’70s. By the mid-’70s he began experimenting with period instruments

for performances of Baroque music. At the time, performing on 17th-century violins was the province of specialists, and to this day relatively few violinists move easily between Baroque and modern violins, which differ in string tension, timbres and bowing styles. In his early performances he tried to find common ground between Baroque and modern approaches.

CPR Continued from C1 He placed the dummy on the floor, then demonstrated each of the steps: checking the scene, tapping and shouting to see if the victim would wake up, asking a passer-by to call 911. Then the chin lift and head tilt, looking, listening and feeling for breathing, and rescue breaths and chest compressions. He told the class about the time he performed CPR on an elderly man in a football stadium. Schwarz doesn’t know whether the man lived, but said he had a pulse when the ambulance came. “It’s real, it happens,” Schwarz told his class. “So knowing this skill is a really good thing.” Once Schwarz completed his demonstration, it was the students’ turn. Six at a time, the seventhand eighth-graders kneeled on the floor before their dummies, struggling to hold their arms straight and counting aloud as they completed chest compressions. Brad Sellers, 14, said he likes knowing he has the skill if the need arises. “I wanted to do this so I can help people,” he said. And he thinks it makes sense to learn the skills in school. “We’re learning about evolving and being able to do things on our own,” he said.

Jamie Martin performs CPR on a dummy as his classmates in Karl Schwarz’s advanced science class watch Wednesday at Pilot Butte Middle School. American Red Cross, Schwarz’s work is important. “To find a colleague with students who are helping with that societal need, that’s a great partnership,” he said. “It’s effective, too. These kids aren’t asleep in class.” Schwarz reminded the class how long they must continue chest compressions: until the ambulance comes, or the person is revived, or you simply cannot continue. “Can you imagine if you had to do this for a half hour?” Schwarz asked the students. They murmured in agreement; the hardest part is the chest compressions. “It gets really tiring,” Dalton said.

Olivia Carlile, 12, was sitting to the side as she watched her classmates work on their dummies. She said although it can be funny to watch her classmates do CPR on the dummies, it’s also nice to know there are people out there who can help out. “We can feel good if we actually have to save a life,” she said. “We won’t be confused.” But, Olivia said, the process is a little nerve-racking. “If you do it the wrong way, you could make a big mistake,” she said. “And it’s funny because when we do it we look funny. But at least we know what to do.”

Bend resident Ron Boozell told the commission that limiting Flaherty’s staff choices could hurt his ability to prosecute cases. “I support District Attorneyelect Patrick Flaherty’s need to hire the staff of his choice,” he said. “I believe and trust his campaign promise of justice, not politics, but only if he is allowed to fulfill that promise by choosing those that will represent those in office.” Becky Gallagher, a Eugene attorney representing the deputy district attorneys, said in a phone interview Wednesday that she was pleased with the

contract. She said the just-cause provision does not mean Flaherty will be unable to fire any employees. “(The provision) does not guarantee employees a job for life,” she said. “It’s very clearly spelled out in the contract what that means.” Flaherty, who could not be reached for comment Wednesday, has said he doesn’t believe the proposed contract will limit him from making staff changes — but also doesn’t agree with the county’s decision to approve a contract before he takes office next month.

Margolius was officially, although secretly, rehabilitated in 1963. When filling out a form for the Ministry of Justice that asked her to report any losses inflicted by her husband’s arrest and execution, Kovaly drew up a list that included “loss of honor,” “loss of health” and “loss of faith in the Party and in justice.” Only at the end of her 10-item list did she write “loss of property.” “I carry the past inside me like an accordion, like a book of picture postcards that people bring home as souvenirs from foreign cities, small and neat,” she wrote in her memoir. “But all it takes is to lift one corner of the top card for an endless snake to escape, zigzag joined to zigzag, the sign of the viper, and instantly all the pictures line up before my eyes.”

She made her way back to Prague, where she reunited with her husband, who had survived both Auschwitz and Dachau and, under the Communist government of Klement Gottwald, rose to become a deputy minister of foreign trade. In 1952, Margolius and 13 other government officials, including the former general secretary of the Czechoslovak Communist Party, Rudolf Slansky, were arrested and charged with conspiring against the state. All but two were Jewish, and all were found guilty in one of the era’s most notorious show trials. On Dec. 3, 1952, Margolius was hanged.

After the group was approved, its representatives began negotiating with county officials and approved a contract last month. Kanner noted that the county

THE BULLETIN • THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2010

COLLEGE FOOTBALL Florida coach Urban Meyer resigns GAINESVILLE, Fla. — With his wife and two of his three children sitting a few feet away, Urban Meyer didn’t have to look very far to be reminded why he’s leaving one of the premier jobs in college football. It’s all about family. Meyer resigned from Florida on Wednesday, stepping down for the second time in less than a year. His first attempt, which lasted just a day, was for health reasons. This time it’s to be a better husband and father. “At the end of the day, I’m very convinced that you’re going to be judged on how you are as a husband and as a father and not on how many bowl games we won,” Meyer said at a campus news conference. “I’ve not seen my two girls play high school sports. They’re both very talented Division I-A volleyball players, so I missed those four years. I missed two already with one away at college. I can’t get that time back.” The 46-year-old coach led Florida to two national titles but briefly resigned last December, citing health concerns. He had been hospitalized with chest pains after the Gators lost to Alabama in last season’s Southeastern Conference championship game. “Last year was a knee-jerk reaction,” Meyer said. “This year was just completely different.” Meyer called Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley on Saturday to tell him he was contemplating retirement. They met Tuesday to finalize his intentions. The decision to walk away was even tougher because of Florida’s struggles this season. The Gators were near the bottom the SEC in every offensive category, got blown out in games against Alabama, South Carolina and Florida State, and finished 7-5. It was the most losses in Meyer’s 10year coaching career. — The Associated Press

Bears hope to repeat success Cowgirls Bend High returns two starters from a team that made state, looks to contend in a wide-open IMC By Keith Bleyer

Bend High basketball player Ally McConnell, left, tries to block the shot of teammate Kenzi Boehme during practice Monday. The Laval Bears reached the Class 5A state tournament last season.

Last season, Bend High’s Todd Ervin made his debut as the Lava Bears’ girls basketball coach with quite the splash. In his first season with the girls program — he had been a longtime assistant with the Bend High boys team — Ervin guided the Lava Bears to the Intermountain Conference title and a berth in the Class 5A state tournament. To top his rookie year off, Ervin was named the 5A state coach of the year. So what does Ervin have in store for an encore? “Do it again, I guess,” Ervin says with a chuckle. “Hey, a lot of things fell together last season. It was a fun run.”

• A look at every area girls basketball team, Page D5

Bulletin staff report For Ervin and the Lava Bears, a repeat of last season will not be easy. The IMC looks to be wide open as Bend returns just two starters from its 2009-10 squad. Senior wing Kenzi Boehme and junior post Ally McConnell will be the experienced leaders for the Lava Bears in 2010-11 as senior Karleigh Taylor, the IMC’s player of the year last season as a junior, decided not to go out for basketball this season.

hey are just places on a map. Bone Mountain, Slater Ridge, Twelve Mile Creek, Big Elk, Elk Creek Falls, Eden Ridge. We try to divine clues from topographic cues unless we gain a little local knowledge. I called Darrell Holland of Holland’s Guns in Powers. “That’s all good elk country, east of Remote. You ought to try Bone Mountain,” he said. Away from the highway, the road turned to gravel and climbed past the snowline. We locked the hubs in and shifted into four-wheel drive. Daylight pushed back the dark. We looked into bowls of fresh powder and hoped to strike the track of a bull. See Hunting / D6

Crosby scores twice, Penguins win 11th straight The Associated Press PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby is disproving the theory that the NHL would never again see a time when offense ruled and top goal scorers routinely averaged a goal a game. Crosby scored twice during his fourth multiple-goal game in his last six, and the Pittsburgh Penguins won their 11th game in a row by beating the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 on Wednesday night. The Penguins, 12-0-1 since last losing in regulation on Nov. 10, are on the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. Their only longer run was their NHL-record 17-game streak during a 119-point season in 1993. That’s back when Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux regularly scored goals in bunches. During a much different era when goals don’t come as easily and 100-point scorers are scarce, the 23-year-old Crosby leads the NHL with 26 goals and 50 points in 30 games The former NHL MVP and scoring champion has 20 goals and 15 assists during a 17-game scoring streak that is two shy of his career best, and he has 14 goals during Pittsburgh’s winning streak. Crosby also has nine goals in the Penguins’ last four home games. He also has at least one goal in 13 of 17 games, one reason some in the standing-room crowd 18,1568 began chanting, “M-V-P! M-V-P!” There’s more: Crosby has figured in 22 of the Penguins’ 38 goals during a winning streak that began after they lost a 2-1 lead in the final minute of a 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers on Nov. 15. “It’s December, though, and there’s a lot of season left,” said Crosby, who also received a standing ovation. “As a group, we want to keep going and individually, (I) want to keep going. Just want to keep going.” Also on Wednesday: Sharks. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .5 Flyers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4 PHILADELPHIA — Logan Couture and Ryane Clowe scored shootout goals to lift San Jose past Philadelphia after the Sharks overcame a three-goal, third-period deficit and an apparent Flyers goal in overtime.

Red Sox reach deal for Crawford

• Source: Union says NBA hasn’t moved in talks: The NBA players association has told its members that the league has not moved off its original negotiating position, and reiterated to them it would not accept a hard salary cap or the massive salary rollbacks being sought. The players have received an audio podcast and mailings outlining the owners’ proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement, along with details of a union counterproposal that includes rolling back the draft age requirement to 18, a person with knowledge of its contents told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person requested anonymity because the contents were not made public. The players rejected the league’s initial proposal during All-Star weekend in February and delivered their own on July 1, one that the source said was “designed to move the negotiations forward and the union’s intent was to come up with a proposal that addresses the concerns of both sides.”

Football • Harbaugh: Stanford fans will come to bowl: Jim Harbaugh is sure Stanford fans will show up for the Orange Bowl. Even though the Cardinal are playing some 2,500 miles away from the home stadium they don’t always fill, Harbaugh is confident. “We sold 8,000 tickets in one morning after the announcement,” Harbaugh said. “That’s more tickets than we sold last year to the Sun Bowl. And that was only the first 12 hours. Our fans and alumni are really excited about this trip, so I think they’ll turn out for us.” No. 5 Stanford (11-1), whose only loss of the season was to undefeated Oregon (52-31), has already received ticket requests from alumni located as far away as Moscow after one of the best seasons in school history. For 12th-ranked Virginia Tech, an ACC title and Orange Bowl appearance is almost business as usual — this is the Hokies’ third trip to South Florida in four seasons. • Eagles’ Vick leads NFL in Pro Bowl voting: Michael Vick leads Pro Bowl voting 1½ years after he was released from prison. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback had 729,838 fan votes, nearly 39,000 more than second-place Peyton Manning, the NFL said Wednesday. Manning topped the balloting two weeks ago. It’s the latest evidence many fans seem willing to forgive Vick for the vicious dogfighting operation that sent him to prison for 18 months — and embrace his stunning return to NFL stardom. A backup to start the season, Vick has led the Eagles to first place in the NFC East, accounting for 21 touchdowns and throwing just two interceptions. • Chargers say they’ll play in San Diego in 2011: The San Diego Chargers say they will play in San Diego in 2011. Beyond that is anyone’s guess. The team told Mayor Jerry Sanders on Wednesday that it will not exercise its 2011 escape clause. The announcement came amid recent speculation that the Chargers could be headed to Los Angeles. “We decided to make it now, especially given all the rumors that have circulated over the last week or so about Los Angeles,” Chargers spokesman Mark Fabiani said. “It seemed to be the right time to do it.” Last week, a report that sports and entertainment powerhouse Anschutz Entertainment Group was buying 35 percent of the team fueled rumors the Chargers would move if AEG succeeds in building a stadium it has proposed for downtown Los Angeles. Fabiani denied the report. He said on Wednesday that there are no offers pending or imminent. • Chiefs QB has appendectomy: Quarterback Matt Cassel, a key reason the Kansas City Chiefs have emerged as contenders and lead the AFC West late in the season, underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday. How long the Chiefs might be without Cassel, the AFC offensive player of the month, was uncertain. They said the procedure was a success and they expected Cassel to “return to work this week.” They did not say whether he would be ready to play on Sunday when the Chiefs (8-4) travel to San Diego for a showdown with the Chargers, who trail Kansas City by two games in the division. Taking most of the practice snaps on Wednesday was Brodie Croyle, who is 0-9 as an NFL starter and has not appeared in a game all year. • Sterger lawyer says Favre investigation complete: The lawyer for the former Jets game hostess who allegedly received inappropriate phone messages and photos from Brett Favre says the NFL’s investigation into the matter is complete. Attorney Joseph Conway said Wednesday that he received a call from an NFL official who told him the case has been wrapped up and sent to Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league’s lawyers for review. Conway is the lawyer for Jenn Sterger, who allegedly received the inappropriate messages and photos two years ago when she and the quarterback both worked for the Jets. Conway says he has been told of no timetable for an announcement.

Soccer • Timbers name assistants: The Portland Timbers have selected Trevor James and Amos Magee as assistants and Adam Smith as goalkeeper coach for their inaugural Major League Soccer season. James comes to the Timbers from the Los Angeles Galaxy while the other assistant coaches were already with the team, which was part of the USSF Division-2 Pro League last season. The assistants will serve under head coach John Spencer. The Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps join MLS in 2011.

Baseball • Judge delays Clemens trial: A judge on Wednesday postponed the trial of baseball star Roger Clemens for three months until July so his attorneys can review the voluminous evidence generated during a 2½-year investigation into whether he lied about using performance enhancing drugs. At a hearing in Washington federal court, prosecutors said the case has produced some 54,000 pages of evidence. They are required to turn over to the defense any material that might tend to clear the former major league pitcher. Clemens’ attorney Rusty Hardin said they need more time to go through the material they receive and to hire an expert witness to examine the scientific evidence against Clemens, presumably including the syringes Clemens’ former trainer says he used to inject the pitcher with the drugs.

Cycling • Rasmussen named captain of new team: Michael Rasmussen has been selected to lead a new cycling team 3½ years after he was sacked by his former team while leading the Tour de France. Danish watch designer Christina Hembo said Wednesday that Rasmussen will captain her Christina Watches outfit, which she formed after her company bought 100 percent of a UCI-registered professional team. It was unclear who would be on the team besides Rasmussen, or what races they would enter. The second-tier UCI professional teams can compete in events such as the Tour, the Giro d’Italia, and the Spanish Vuelta but must be invited by race organizers. Rasmussen led the 2007 Tour until he was kicked off the Rabobank team for lying about his whereabouts when he missed pre-race doping tests. He was banned for two years. He has maintained he raced clean and never tested positive. — From wire reports

Oregon running back LaMichael James (21) jumps in the air as he runs on to the field following a victory over Arizona in November. James is a candidate for the Heisman Trophy.

Ducks’ James honored by accolades, but wants title By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

Standing shoeless in a hallway while all around his Oregon teammates celebrated clinching their trip to the national championship, running back LaMichael James was asked for the umpteenth time how he felt about all the individual accolades coming his way. James bore a here-we-go-again grin. “I can’t think about that, man,” he said. “We’ve still got one more game.” This has become a mantra for James, who has tried to deflect the national attention that has increased with each carry this season — even though he is constantly asked about it. The small yet speedy sophomore is among the four finalists for the Heisman Trophy, the only running back joining a trio of quarterbacks: Auburn’s Cam Newton, Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Boise State’s Kellen Moore. James is also one of three finalists for both the Doak Walker Award, honoring the nation’s top running back, and the Walter Camp player of the year award.

Goal to go While he is flattered by the recognition, James said he has not really considered the Heisman as a goal. And for now he is focused on Auburn, the team the Ducks will face in the national championship game on Jan. 10. “It’s never been something that’s even been on my mind, I can honestly say that. I just never think about it,” James said at a recent news conference. “Winning the national championship, that’s the main goal. I’ve always thought about that. I always wanted to be the guy holding up the little ball and giving it a kiss and all that good stuff.” At 5 feet 9 and 185 pounds, James has been compared to former Heisman winner and NFL great Barry Sanders. By necessity, he made a splash last year as a redshirt freshman after senior LeGarrette Blount was suspended for punching a Boise State player in the aftermath of the season opener.

James ran for a Pac-10 freshmanrecord 1,546 yards and was named the league’s freshman of the year.

Misstep But his reputation was tainted this spring when he was accused of assaulting a former girlfriend. He spent two nights in jail and eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge. James apologized to the young woman and her family. Determined not to let the incident define him, James kept a low profile for the rest of the offseason except for a bit of freelancing on Oregon’s track team. Because of the altercation, however, James was suspended by football coach Chip Kelly for the season opener against New Mexico. Talking for the first time during preseason camp about what transpired in the offseason, James said that ultimately he did not fully understand the responsibility of his position. “You’re in a fishbowl. Either you’re at the top and everybody’s waiting for you to fall, or you’re at the bottom and everybody’s waiting for you to screw up,” he said. James now says about the incident: “That’s in the past.” He found himself in the fishbowl again late this season when the NCAA briefly investigated reports that he was driving around Eugene in a 2003 Range Rover. Turned out James had borrowed the luxury SUV from a mentor to avoid someone who kept leaving notes on his own car. He even joked that his plan was thwarted once the car swap made national news. “I don’t know what I’m going to have to do now. I’m just going to have to get a scooter,” he said.

Family history The Texas native has always been adept at moving forward. His father was shot and killed before he was born, and his maternal grandmother, who raised him, passed away from cancer when he was in high school. James rushed for 2,043 yards and 26 touchdowns in his senior year at Liberty-Eylau High School in Texarkana. Considered a four-star recruit,

he was lured to the Pacific Northwest in large part by Oregon running backs coach Gary Campbell. He chose the Ducks over offers from TCU and Nebraska. James recently admitted that he did not even know where Oregon was when he was being recruited. This season James is the nation’s leading rusher, with 1,682 yards, averaging 153 yards per game. He is also averaging a national-best 12 points per game. At Oregon, he ranks second with 3,228 career rushing yards and 36 touchdowns. His 22 touchdowns this season (21 on the ground along with one touchdown reception) are a school record.

Off the field While James has a quick sense of humor, he will be the first to say that off the field he is reserved. A Christian, he is tattooed with the Bible passage Philippians 4:13, which says: “I can do all things through him who gives me strength.” About the only individual honor that James has ever said he would like to earn is Academic All-American. He did not make that list this season, but he was named to the Pac10’s All-Academic first team. James, a sociology major, has a 3.01 gradepoint average. “That was one of my main goals. I really worked hard to do that,” he said. “It’s kinda tough to balance school with games and all that stuff. I really take pride in doing both.” James said he still has time to win national academic recognition. He also said he plans to run on the UO track team in the spring. “My career at Oregon is not done,” he said, effectively answering whether he has immediate plans to leave Eugene for the NFL. His apparent desire to stay in school and his view on the Heisman hype begged the question that if he did win it — if not this year but in the future — what would he do with it? Donate it to the university, he replied. But when a reporter pointed out that the university gets one too, James was quick with a smile and a retort: “They’ll have two.”

NFL

Seahawks’ ground game comes alive with Lynch By Tim Booth The Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. — For once, Marshawn Lynch didn’t need to dance around, waiting and hoping for a hole to emerge. Seattle’s lagging run game finally provided a little punch last week. “I think for any runner, any runner wants to see the looks and you want to get a feel for the line of scrimmage and how things are moving and then they start to take advantage of what they’re seeing,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “There’s no question that that happened with Marshawn.” Carroll and his staff made a commitment last week to better what was the worst rushing offense in the NFL. After weeks of relying on the pass and supplementing Matt Hasselbeck’s throwing with a mostly ineffective run game, Seattle flipped the script.

The result: 30 of 31 carries coming from Seattle’s running backs and a season-high 161 yards produced on the ground, the Seahawks’ best rushing effort since Week 12 of the 2009 season. It may not seem like much, and it came against the 111 Panthers, but it was a huge step forward. “We just kept doing what we were doing and eventually they (wore down),” Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. “I think it was more that than the holes getting bigger. We ran the same plays in the first half, it was just we kept doing what we do and we stayed with it.” The renewed focus on running the ball was mostly evident in the second half when Seattle outscored Carolina 28-0. The Seahawks rushed for 126 yards in the second half, with Lynch gaining 57 yards and scoring all three of his touchdowns during

that stretch. Justin Forsett also added 60 yards and averaged 10 yards per carry. The most evident improvement was Lynch no longer searching for holes to open. Seattle’s offensive line — which has seen eight different starting lineups this season — began wearing down Carolina’s defense in the second half and the running lanes were there for Lynch to exploit. Lynch was the first Seattle running back with three rushing TDs since Shaun Alexander in his MVP season of 2005. “I just think collectively, with the quarterback putting us in the right position, with the playcalling, he might have checked out of something and put us into a better look. I think that was a big help to us,” Lynch said. “We just executed better overall on the day.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Boston Red Sox struck again at the winter meetings, reaching agreement with star outfielder Carl Crawford on a $142 million, seven-year contract Wednesday night. A person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press the agreement is subject to Crawford passing a physical. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet final. Crawford’s deal was first reported by The Boston Globe on its website. On Monday, the Red Sox formally announced their trade for slugging first baseman Adrian Gonzalez of San Diego. Boston’s big deals follow a season in which it failed to make the playoffs. Earlier in the day, both Chicago teams filled their needs at first base — Carlos Pena joined the Cubs, Paul Konerko returned to the White Sox. Another first, too, at these meetings: The New York Yankees made their initial offer to free agent Cliff Lee. The Yankees will try to lure Lee with a six-year proposal worth nearly $140 million. Easy to tell how eager they are to sign the prize pitcher. “Hannibal Lecter in a straitjacket right now, waiting on this Cliff Lee thing,” general manager Brian Cashman said. The last full day of this week’s session was active, with many teams in the mix. Still in play are big-name free agents Adrian Beltre, Magglio Ordonez and Manny Ramirez, along with Lee. “The winter meetings have usually been a lot about first meetings, and we’re into second and third meetings,” top agent Scott Boras said. “I’ve gotten two deals done here. I’m trying to think back to when that’s happened. It’s been a while.” Boras put Pena and the Cubs together for what he called a “pillow contract” — $10 million for one year. The 32-year-old Pena hit a career-low .196 this season with 28 home runs and 84 RBIs for Tampa Bay. “I’m extremely confident. I don’t tend to look back on my failures and dwell upon them,” he said. The Cubs, who traded star first baseman Derrek Lee to Atlanta last August, didn’t seem daunted by Pena’s drop-off. “It’s not a gamble. It’s a real good fit,” GM Jim Hendry asserted. “We have filled all of the essentials that we were looking for with Carlos.” Konerko got a $37.5 million, three-year deal to stay with the White Sox. The 34-year-old team captain hit .312 with 39 home runs and 111 RBIs last season. The meetings end Thursday with the Rule 5 draft, mostly made up of minor league veterans left off 40-man rosters. Even when teams pack up and leave the Disney resort, look for more deals — often 3½ days of talking quickly turns into a move or two.

Mariners reach deal with Cust Free-agent slugger Jack Cust and the Seattle Mariners agreed to a oneyear contract Wednesday, giving Seattle a veteran designated hitter heading into 2011. Cust spent the past four seasons with Seattle’s AL West rival Oakland and likely will become the Mariners’ regular DH, though he also provides versatility for new manager Eric Wedge with the ability to play the outfield. He hit .272 with 13 homers and 52 RBIs in 112 games last season. He added 68 walks for a .395 on-base percentage.

Portland’s Patty Mills passes the ball as Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash closes in during the second quarter of Tuesday’s game at the Rose Garden in Portland Mills had a career high seven assists as the Blazers won the game 106-99.

Aussie Mills gives Blazers a big boost By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Patty Mills has been the first Portland Trail Blazer to leap to his feet and cheer from the bench when a teammate scores all this season, often waving his towel over his head. Now the cheers from the bench are for him. On Tuesday night, the 6-foot Australian point guard sparked the team to a 106-99 victory over the Phoenix Suns. It was Portland’s second win after a string of six losses that were marked by a lack of energy. Mills finished with nine points and a careerhigh seven assists. But it was an intangible zeal that earned him an ovation from the Rose Garden crowd — which included his dad, Benny, who was visiting the United States for the holidays. Notable among his plays was a sweet no-look pass to his close pal Rudy Fernandez. Mills invented his “three-point goggles” for his Spanish teammate — which entails making goggles around his eyes with his fingers after Fernandez makes a three-pointer — that have caught on with fans. After the game the Blazers paid Mills back for the enthusiasm that has made him an endearing mascot for Portlanders weathering a tough start to the season. “Hey Patty,” center Marcus Camby teased. “Can I get your autograph now Patty?” Forward LaMarcus Aldridge chanted “Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!” “I think I feed off the situations of being that cheerleader,” Mills said. “And that kind of gets me into a groove to go out there and just play hard.” Earlier Tuesday, Mills took to Twitter to post simply “WTD,” short for Win The Day. It was a nod to college football’s second-ranked Oregon Ducks, a team Mills has adopted in his adopted home state. Mills grabbed international attention when he scored 20 points for Australia in the 2008 Olympics against the gold medal-winning U.S. team. He was the youngest basketball player in Beijing, at 19. He spent two seasons at St. Mary’s in Moraga, Calif., before deciding to turn pro, and he was selected by the Blazers with the 55th overall pick in the 2009 draft. He broke his foot in his rookie NBA season, but he ended up playing in 10 games. There was suspi-

Miller upset about suspension PORTLAND — Trail Blazers guard Andre Miller is critical of the suspension that ended a consecutive games-played streak that dated back to 2003. Miller missed Tuesday’s 106-99 victory over the Suns because of the league-imposed one-game suspension for making “excessive and unnecessary contact” with Clippers forward Blake Griffin in a game Sunday. The suspension snapped Miller’s consecutive games streak at 632, the longest among active NBA players. He had not missed a game since Jan. 24, 2003. Miller told reporters Wednesday the suspension wasn’t justified. He says it showed that the league favors younger players and was without consideration for his accomplishment.

cion that he might not make the Blazers’ roster this season — but he did, and so far he has averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 assists in seven games. He has played about 11 minutes per game. Portland coach Nate McMillan, who was a coach for the U.S. team in Beijing and saw Mills before he was a Blazer, rattled off a list of the guard’s strengths. “I think he has a high basketball IQ as far as running sets, knowing when to hold up and call sets. He’s a very good passer,” McMillan said. “He sees the floor well and he’s very crafty with the ball.” Against the Clippers, Mills played nearly 29 minutes, his longest outing of the season. “Patty came in and he was hyped and he really got us going,” said Wesley Matthews, who led the Blazers with 24 points. “He was just making plays, play after play: shots, assists and playing defense.” Mills basked in the playing time, even joking that it got in the way of his cheerleading. “Every time I came to the bench I didn’t have enough energy to wave the towel, but nothing’s going to stop me from being who I am and doing all that stuff,” Mills said. “That’s something I like to do and that’s part of my character, I guess.”

Battle of L.A.: Lakers beat Clippers 87-86 on Fisher’s late layup The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — Clock ticking down, Derek Fisher has the ball, and he stops to launch a perimeter shot. It’s a scenario the 36year-old has executed to perfection over the years in the playoffs. This time, Fisher did something different. The guy who doesn’t shoot a high percentage inside hit a layup on the left side at the buzzer to give the Los Angeles Lakers an 87-86 victory over the Clippers on Wednesday night after the twotime defending NBA champions trailed most of the second half. “I assumed most guys would play me to stop and shoot so I just wanted to try and leave a little hesitation in it,” Fisher said. Kobe Bryant scored 24 points, Shannon Brown added 16 and Pau Gasol had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Lakers, who ended a three-game road losing streak as the visiting team in their own building. “Yeah!” Bryant said he was thinking as the ball went in. “He just had the lane and took it.”

NBA ROUNDUP Eric Gordon scored 24 points, Blake Griffin had 16 points and 11 rebounds, Eric Bledsoe had 11 points and DeAndre Jordan 11 rebounds for the Clippers, who blew a 12-point lead in the third quarter. “Hopefully, it’s a learning experience to us,” Gordon said. “We lose basically on turnovers. In crunch time, we made a couple of bad plays and that is what gave them a chance.” Fisher dribbled into the paint and scored over Jordan, capping a wild final 41 seconds. “My fingertip hit it. I just wasn’t up high enough,” Jordan said. Fisher added, “Had his fingernails been longer, he probably would have got to it.” Bryant’s fast-break running jumper drew the Lakers to 84-83 and his 19-footer put them ahead by one with 22 seconds to go. The Lakers scored on two consecutive turnovers by Gordon before he found Jordan in the paint

for a dunk that put the Clippers in front 86-85 with 15 seconds left. But the Clippers were denied their sixth win of the season when Fisher, the wily clutch shooter in so many NBA finals, found his way into the paint for the winning basket in the first meeting of the season between the Staples Center co-tenants. “It was a tough shot,” Bledsoe said. “That’s what he’s there for. He has been doing it for years for them.” Also on Wednesday: Celtics. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 105 Nuggets . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 89 BOSTON — Ray Allen scored 28 points as Boston took advantage of an injury to Carmelo Anthony and won its eighth straight game.

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP

Coach K moves up wins list as No. 1 Duke rolls The Associated Press DURHAM, N.C. — Andre Dawkins scored a career-high 28 points in his first start to help topranked Duke beat Bradley 83-48 on Wednesday night, moving coach Mike Krzyzewski into sole possession of third place on the all-time wins list. The sophomore hit eight 3pointers for the Blue Devils (9-0) in place of star freshman point guard Kyrie Irving, who is out indefinitely with a toe injury on his right foot. Kyle Singler added 17 points as Duke shook off a cold-shooting first half and blew the game open with a flurry of 3s after halftime for its 19th straight win. It was Krzyzewski’s 877th victory, moving him out of a tie with Kentucky’s Adolph Rupp and putting him just two behind North Carolina’s Dean Smith for second place behind Bobby Knight’s 902 wins. The Hall of Famer could tie his former longtime rival at home against Elon on Dec. 20, then pass Smith when the Blue Devils face UNC Greensboro on Dec. 29 in the Greensboro Coliseum.

Against the odds, Tyson heads to hall of fame alive and well By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press

M

ike Tyson and I were sitting around a few months back, talking about life. His life, that is, a subject Tyson seems to find almost as fascinating as a lot of other people do. “When I was younger I thought I was going to destroy myself,� Tyson told me. “I’m very grateful I made it to this place in my life.� That place is a far different place than I ever imagined Tyson to be in the years I spent covering his career. By this time I figured he would be in prison, homeless or off by himself tending to pigeons somewhere. Actually, I figured he would be dead. Stabbed in a strip club, shot by a jealous husband. Perhaps overdosed on cocaine. But dead, long before he confronted middle age. Like Tyson, I was convinced he would destroy himself. Instead, in a development just as stunning as Tyson losing to Buster Douglas, he has launched a second career the old Iron Mike never would have recognized. Now the 44-year-old is head-

Bears Continued from D1 “They’re about the only ones who played a lot of minutes last season,� Ervin says about Boehme and McConnell. Bend, which has started the 2010-11 campaign 3-0, has a trio of sophomores in posts Molly Maloney and Mekayla Isaak and guard Heidi Froelich who are all expected to play significant roles for the Bears this season. Freshman Delaney Crook, who started for the Lava Bears’ varsity soccer team this fall, could also see varsity time at point guard. Across town at Mountain View, the Cougars expect to again be competitive with the return of senior twins Kersey and Jordan Wilcox, both of whom were all-league guards last season. Mountain View went 13-11 overall and 8-6 in league play a year ago in coach Steve Riper’s first season. Junior post Kylie Durre, an IMC honorable mention selection a year ago, also is back for the Cougars, giving Mountain View more returning all-league players than anyone else in Bend. Summit could compete for a league title and a spot in the postseason as well. The Storm fell back a bit last season after making the 5A state tournament in 2009, but still managed to end the season 12-12 overall and 7-7 in league. Coach Ryan Cruz will be hoping for a full season from senior post Taylor Pierce, the 2008-09 IMC player of the year as a sophomore. Pierce missed most of last season with a foot injury. Juniors Kristen Parr and Sarah Edwards, both of whom saw extensive varsity time last season, also look to be key for the Storm. At Redmond, the Panthers are expected to follow the lead of junior post Margo Capps, an all-Central Valley Conference honorable mention selection a year ago. While all three Bend schools and Redmond return their coaches from a year ago, three of Central Oregon’s four Class 4A schools have rookie coaches this season. Kelly Garvin takes over at La Pine, David Johnson is new at Crook County and Julianne Horner will be in her first year at Sisters. Garvin may have the most daunting task, replacing Kim Beer, who guided the Hawks to

NFR Continued from D1 Mote, who is fifth in the world right now, trails current world leader Steven Dent by about $32,000. With a big finish and a solid performance in the NFR aggregate competition, Mote still has a chance to win a world title. He is currently third in the average in bareback, with 575.5 points on seven head. Justin McDaniel leads the average with 586 on seven. The aggregate winner after 10 rounds in each event will earn $44,910, and second-place is worth $36,436.

ing to the International Boxing Hall of Fame. Cue the jokes now, but there’s no truth to the rumor his bust will be placed next to a bronze replica of Evander Holyfield’s ear. He’ll be there because he once was truly was the baddest man on the planet. OK, so the bar for entry in the boxing hall isn’t set all that high. Proof was the announcement that actor Sylvester Stallone is joining Tyson as one of the 12 members of next year’s class. Unless you were around when Tyson reigned as the heavyweight champion of the world, it’s hard to imagine just how big he was. It’s also hard to imagine how troubled he was, though the tabloids of the late ’80s and early ’90s were filled with daily reminders of the difficulties he had outside the ring living up to what he did inside the ring. “I got intoxicated with myself,� Tyson said. “I didn’t know how empty I was as champ.� I was sitting at ringside the night Tyson knocked out Trevor Berbick in the second round at the Las Vegas Hilton to become the youngest heavyweight champion ever. Later that night I

watched as the fearsome 20-yearold paraded proudly around the casino with the gaudy WBC title belt wrapped around his waist. Nearly a quarter century later Tyson is drawing laughs appearing in movies and videos that parody his former self. But there was nothing funny about the man-child who was at the same time both frightening and fascinating. If this were another hall of fame, Tyson would have no chance of getting in. He served time behind bars for both rape and assault, narrowly missed another prison term after being caught with cocaine in Arizona and generally behaved so badly over the years that normal society wouldn’t want anything to do with him. But this is boxing, not baseball. And no one who watched Tyson viciously pummel opponents in his prime would ever question his place among the sport’s alltime greats. His prime didn’t last long, a little over three years before Douglas exposed him as a one-trick fighter in Japan. But promoters were still selling Tyson a decade later to boxing fans who didn’t

understand that he was simply going through the motions to make another payday. “You become a freak, so to speak,� he told me. “People stare at you and you don’t understand why the average person looks at you like you’re someone special.� Tyson is remarkably good at analyzing himself and harshly candid when it comes to talking about his shortcomings. He’s every psychiatrist’s dream patient, and every talk show host’s dream guest. It’s been five years since an out-of-shape and disinterested Tyson was knocked out in his final fight by Kevin McBride, journeyman heavyweight who wouldn’t have lasted a round with him in his heyday. He’s now approaching middle age and seems to have finally shed at least some of the demons that constantly tormented him. Iron Mike is now Hall of Famer Mike. Alive and surprisingly well.

“There were a couple of times where I probably should have had a re-ride but didn’t,� Mote said. “It just reminds me that you can’t worry about what you can’t control.

time in the first seven at the NFR. The two-time world champion from Los Alamos, Calif., had a winning run of 3.3 seconds. In bull riding, defending world standings champion J.W. Harris of Mullin, Texas, won his third round in a row with a 94.5 on Smoke Screen. He leads the world standings and NFR aggregate. In barrel racing, world standings leader Sherry Cervi of Marana, Ariz., won with a 13.70second run. Terrebonne’s Brenda Mays finished out of the money with a time of 14.12 seconds.

both of Heflin, La., tied for first at 87.5. Cody Wright of Milford, Utah, remained the NFR aggregate leader and world leader. In team roping, Brady Tryan of Huntley, Mont., and Jake Long of Coffeyville, Kan., won for the second time in the seven rounds, this time in 3.9.

D6 Thursday, December 9, 2010 • THE BULLETIN

Hunting Continued from D1 To be truthful, I didn’t think my oldest daughter would hunt big game again. She married in May and I thought her biggame hunting was over. But she wanted to try for a big bull elk. For that, she had saved her preference points since she was 12. She drew a Powers Unit tag and we would have three days to hunt before she would go back to work. Her husband, Sterling, would go with us and try to help us spot a bull. Tiffany has always been a good shot. With the rifle that Darrell Holland built for me, she put two Nosler AccuBonds in a group three-quarters of an inch apart — at 285 yards. With a proper rest, she should be able to make the long shots. A trail took us out to a point, an overlook into a deep canyon. Tiffany stepped on something that jabbed her in the ankle. Reaching down, she picked up a fivepoint blacktail deer antler shed, the only bone we’d find on Bone Mountain. At lunch we stopped in a wayside along a river. Six shiny black turkeys picked at fallen apples. After we had our lunch, we picked a bagful of apples to take home. A few on the ground were good, the ones without diamondshaped beak marks. Eden Ridge has long been famous for its elk and blacktail hunting. We saw a few deer, but what caught my attention were the waterfalls, ribbons of water that plunged, stair-step fashion from point to point to point, timeless, pure. Ferns grew tall and moss hung heavy on the trees. We tracked on through the snow until it grew too deep. A half-hour before dark, we came to the end of a spur road and I looked up into the clearcut and spotted the tan and buff flanks of an elk. I motioned to Tiffany and Sterling to come and we pushed up the hill. “It’s either dead or asleep,” I whispered. We stalked to within 30 yards before I saw that it would never move again. I put my hand on its flanks. Cold. It had been dead at least a day. With six points on the right side and five on the other, it was big, the trophy Roosevelt bull we had been looking for. Someone else had gotten to

FISHING REPORT

Dry flies and midges working on Crooked Here is the weekly fishing report for selected areas in and around Central Oregon, provided by fisheries biologists for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife:

CENTRAL ZONE ANTELOPE FLAT RESERVOIR: Angler reports indicate a high growth rate and excellent catch rates. The reservoir has been stocked twice with catchable rainbow trout and was stocked again in October. CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Fishing is good using both dry flies and midges. According to recent angler reports to ODFW, the trout seem to be larger this year than in recent past years. Flows are currently around 95 cfs. Please exercise caution as winter temperatures continue to decline. DAVIS LAKE: Please note this is a fly-

fishing only lake. Please check your synopsis for the regulations for this water body. DESCHUTES RIVER (Mouth to the Northern Boundary of the Warm Springs Reservation): Fishing for summer steelhead has been good. Summer steelhead are spread out in good numbers from the Columbia upstream to Warm Springs, but the majority of fish are between Maupin and Warm Springs. Fishing from the mouth upstream to White River may be hampered by poor water visibility. Anglers are doing well for steelhead between Warm Springs and Trout Creek. DESCHUTES RIVER (Lake Billy Chinook to Bend): Flows have increased significantly and anglers are reminded to exercise caution when wading. No recent reports but there should be good fishing for rainbow and brown trout. Rainbow trout average 10 to 16 inches, while brown trout up to 26 inches are available. Anglers will find

better access downstream of Lower Bridge. FALL RIVER: Anglers are encouraged to note the special regulations in the 2010 Sport Fishing Regulations; the angling season downstream from the Fall River falls ended on Sept. 30. HOOD RIVER: Anglers have reported a few early winter steelhead. Steelhead anglers should expect fish numbers to increase in January and February with a peak in March and April. LAKE BILLY CHINOOK: Anglers are encouraged to note the special regulations for the Metolius Arm of Billy Chinook Reservoir; angling is closed in the Metolius arm from Oct. 31-Mar. 1. METOLIUS RIVER: Trout fishing has been good. Insect hatches should offer opportunities for good dry-fly fishing. PRINEVILLE RESERVOIR: Anglers continue to report good fishing and have reported catching larger trout than in recent years.

Tiffany West found this big blacktail antler up above the snowline while hunting elk in the Powers Unit in western Oregon. it before us. Ferns had been laid over the antlers to hide them from the road. Poles had been dragged over the body. Someone was coming back for the head. That night, from town, I called the State Police with the GPS coordinates. They would investigate. We would hunt elsewhere. Miles off the highway, we parked at dawn on the crest of another mountain. Sunlight winked like diamonds in the snow. The air was still. After a half-hour of glassing, we drove down the hill and took a low road out of the snow and into the mud. Fir trees gave way to oak and alder. On a narrow trail, we found grouse and a reason to use the shotgun. A ruffed grouse for me, and later, a ruffed grouse for Tiffany. On day three, we hunted Eden Ridge again. On a whim, I checked on the dead bull from a half-mile away through the spotting scope. It had been skinned. Crows worked the carcass, but not the coyotes or bear we hoped to see.

“That could have been my elk,” Tiffany said. If it had lasted another day. We assumed it was a poacher’s bullet that felled the magnificent creature. But that evening I talked to the trooper who had assigned the investigation. “It died of natural causes,” he said. “It was infected all the way through. We went over it with a metal detector and there was no evidence of a broadhead or a bullet.” After the breeding season, it is not uncommon for bulls to die. Depleted by fighting and chasing cows, bulls can falter by the first snows, as this one had done. Or maybe he just heard Tiffany was coming and died of fright, out there on a lonely ridge, east of Remote.

FLY-TYING CORNER By Gary Lewis For The Bulletin

When the temperature drops, steelhead seek out deeper, softer water. To reach them, use a fly that projects movement. With marabou, the profile expands and contracts as micro-currents push and pull. The Reign Spey Purple, constructed of marabou, red floss and mallard, is a good choice for steelhead in clear, cold, soft flows. Fish this pattern on a sink-tip and four to five feet of leader. Start close to the bank. At the end of the drift, pay special attention to the deep and slow water. At the strike, the fish may pull the line out slower than it would in faster current. Let it take enough line to turn halfway through its body length before you set the hook. Tie this pattern with black

Use purple marabou for the hackle. Over the marabou, wrap a black saddle hackle. Finish with a bronze mallard wing.

Prepare to tromp in some wet mush By Ben Salmon The Bulletin

Thanksgiving is shrinking in Central Oregon’s collective rearview mirror, but that doesn’t mean we’re done with mashed potatoes. Snow conditions at area trails and parks turned mushier this week as warmer temperatures moved in, said Chris Sabo, trails specialist for the Deschutes National Forest. “The big word is warmer, milder temperatures and rain in the forecast for lower- to mid-elevation trails and sno-parks,” he said. “Those areas are likely to have wet and mashed potato-y conditions.” The change in weather is typical of early winter in the region, Sabo said, and it will likely cause some melting in the places where snow enthusiasts love to play.

SPOTLIGHT

If spiders wore snowshoes Snowshoeing with 3 girls an enlightening adventure By David Jasper

ABOVE: Lucy, front, and Lilly Jasper wander on the snowshoe trail at Swampy Lakes Sno-park, which also has crosscountry ski trails.

The Bulletin

pider!” Lilly, one of my three daughters, shouted as we trekked through the snow along the short, 1¾-mile snowshoe loop at Swampy Lakes Sno-park. There’s also a 3¼mile-long loop, but the chance of us getting on that one could best be described as “fat.” A spider in the snow, though. That qualified as a wildlife sighting, of a sort. It had been a long time coming. That’s not to suggest “long” as in, “We snowshoed a long way.” Ha! No, we never make it very far during our outings. Getting there’s not the point, right? It’s about the journey, not the destination, or so they say. Nevertheless, it felt like a long journey. 7:30 a.m. — Me: “Good morning! You guys ready to go snowshoeing today?” 8:59 a.m. — “Come on, girls. Let’s go. Time to start getting ready.” 9:19 a.m. — “That’s all the progress you’ve made? Seriously? Look at the clock. What time does it say? (I wasn’t wearing my glasses.) That’s (adding in head) … it’s been 20 minutes!” Around 9:45, we finally made it to our destination: Fred Meyer. I know, because I have a receipt for two pairs of snow boots totalling $99.98 that was printed at 10:24 a.m. However, it felt like it was 7 p.m. the next day by the time Lilly, 8, and Caroline, 10, found snow boots that fit. Still, there’s no snowshoeing without adequate footwear. Snowshoes, on the other foot, we already had, thanks to my mom. She lives in sunny south Florida, but insists on buying us gear straight out of the L.L. Bean catalog as though we were outdoorsy and preppy. Sometimes she buys odd little things like the electronic compass-slash-GPS device, replete with carabiner, for those times you’re dangling from a cliff and want to know your coordinates. Those gadgets always require rare batteries and will die

before I ever figure it out, ensuring I will never figure it out. Every once in a while, though, she buys stuff we can use. For instance, the L.L. Bean toboggan she bought around 2003, which has been a hit on the sled hill at Wanoga Snoplay Area the two times we’ve taken it there. I sure wish the L.L. Bean catalog sold

sno-park passes, because we were in need of one.

Son’s gal pal is eating up ‘Community’ gets animated all of his mom’s goodwill with stellar holiday episode By Chuck Barney

Contra Costa Times

Dear Abby: My son “Dennis” is divorcing for the third time. He has primary custody of his oldest two children and shared custody of the younger two. He is an excellent father. I have stayed with him in his large home to help with the kids. I supplement their groceries with things we enjoy. Dennis has a female friend he confides in. He insists they are platonic, but she has told me she hopes to win him over. This woman has a hard time making ends meet, but always has money for pedicures and out-of-town football games. She spends many days and nights with Dennis, showering there, eating his food and using his laundry facilities. I resent that she is eating or taking home the food I buy for the children. Am I being selfish? My husband and I live on a fixed income and must be careful with our money. Any suggestions? — Wary in Minnesota Dear Wary: I do have one. Because you resent the idea that your son’s lady friend may be helping herself to the goodies you are providing for your son and grandchildren, and because it is causing you financial strain, STOP DOING IT. Or bring with you only what you and the children can consume during your visit. Dear Abby: Thank you for publishing my letter (Oct. 27) about Mindy, the dying woman who was celebrating all occasions and holidays early. I would like to add a poignant postscript to the original story. During Mindy’s battle with cancer, she and her husband Bill were friendly with another couple who, sadly, were also battling cancer. In this case, it was the husband who had, at a young age, developed the disease.

DEAR ABBY Because you resent the idea that your son’s lady friend may be helping herself to the goodies you are providing for your son and grandchildren, and because it is causing you financial strain, STOP DOING IT. Or bring with you only what you and the children can consume during your visit. Near the end of her life, Mindy asked her adult daughter to try and create a relationship between Bill and Helen, the wife who had lost her husband. A few months after Mindy passed, her daughter suggested to her father that he call Helen just to chat. He did, and after some time their friendship evolved into a serious relationship. They are being married in the next few months. Mindy must have instinctively known that the losses the remaining spouses had suffered would never be understood except by someone else who had experienced such pain. What a selfless person she was! — Rabbi Albert Slomovitz Dear Rabbi Slomovitz: Indeed she was. And I wish Bill and Helen a lifetime of

happiness together. Dear Abby: My 27-year-old daughter and two grandsons (ages 5 and 6) moved in with me more than a year ago. “Lori” is a good mom, but it upsets me when I wake up at night and discover that she’s not home. She will leave a note saying she’s with this person or that and will be home by midnight or 1 a.m. It infuriates me when she leaves the boys alone with me without informing me in advance. We argue constantly about this, but she continues to do it. I am ready to call the police or to file a report with DSS. Lori says I am home anyway, so what’s the harm? Please help me with this. — Home Alone with the Kids while Mom’s Out Partying Dear Home Alone with the Kids: Your daughter’s behavior is extremely disrespectful to the mother who took her in. Nothing will change until you draw the line and tell her that the home she and her boys are living in is yours — not hers — and you expect her to live by your rules, the first of which is giving you the courtesy of asking whether YOU might like the evening out before she plans one for herself. You are both adults, and you deserve to be consulted. If she won’t comply, she should make other living arrangements.

They’re television’s version of misfit toys: Perfectly sound, high-quality shows that, for some reason or another, get shunned by way too many viewers. If only some bloated, bearded guy could whoosh in on his sleigh and rescue them from obscurity. Few shows are more deserving of fervent aid than “Community,” NBC’s sophomore sitcom about the oddball students who form a study group at fictional Greendale Community College. Led by Joel McHale, as cocky Jeff Winger, the cast is brilliant. Toss in a barrage of sharp oneliners, zany pop-culture references and satire galore, and you’ve got a 30-minute course that should be enjoying high enrollment figures. Tonight, “Community” outdoes itself with a half-hour in which the gang morphs into stop-motion animated characters like the ones we’ve watched for years in “Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer” and other yuletide chestnuts. It’s a cleverly conceived classic that rates up there

with other “Community” gems like last season’s paint ball war and this fall’s zombie-studded Halloween offering. It’s also a fun showcase for scene-stealer supreme, Danny Pudi, who plays Abed, Greendale’s speed-talking, trivia-spewing geek. Abed, it turns out, is a Muslim who loves Christmas. But as the holiday nears, he’s dealing with an emotional scar that inexplicably causes him to see things in claymation. Of course, he draws his classmates into the winter wonderland in his head. So Jeff becomes Jeff-in-the-Box, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) turns into a BrittaBot, Troy (Donald Glover) a Troy Soldier, Pierce (Chevy Chase) a teddy bear, Annie (Allison Brie) a ballerina and Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) a Christmas baby. With globby cheeks and unruly eyebrows, they look like a PlayDough experiment gone wrong. Abed takes his visions as a sign that he and the group must rediscover the meaning of Christmas, so he leads them on a magical journey down Gumdrop Road, with stops at “Pine Tree

‘Community’ When: 8 p.m. Thursdays Where: NBC

Station” and the “Cave of Frozen Memories.” As his pals become increasingly concerned about Abed’s mental health, they enlist the help of Professor Duncan (John Oliver) who strives to get to the bottom of these “delusions.” A major strength of “Community” is its ability to deftly blend snarkiness with sweetness. And this episode is a fine example of that. Yes, it comes packaged with some healthy doses of cynicism, but there is also a heartfelt respect for the holiday TV specials we adore — along with a reminder that the best of them (“Rudolph,” “Charlie Brown,” etc.) contain touches of melancholy. It even manages to sneak in a couple of original Christmas tunes.

‘Lombardi’ premiering Saturday on HBO By Verne Gay Newsday

N   N  Snooki to help ring in the new year on MTV

Fans remember Lennon 30 years after his death

LOS ANGELES — You know it’s New Year’s Eve when the Snooki drops — or at least you will this year. MTV says it plans to put “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Po- Nicole lizzi inside a “Snooki” ball that drops Polizzi in New York’s Times Square to ring in 2011 as part of its “MTV New Year’s Bash” special. The network says stars from the show will lead the crowd in a collective fist pump in hopes of breaking the Guinness world record.

NEW YORK — John Lennon’s fans celebrated his life Wednesday by visiting Strawberry Fields, the Central Park garden dedicated in his honor, while a John Lennon newly released interview he gave shortly before his death showed he was optimistic about his future. On the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s murder outside his Manhattan apartment building, admirers played his music nearby at Strawberry Fields and placed flowers on a mosaic named for his song “Imagine.” The steady stream of visitors represented the range of people who love Lennon, from those who watched his career unfold as it happened to those who know only his music. Father-daughter pair Paul DeLuca, 50, and Marissa DeLuca, 17, came from Boston to mark the day. “I grew up with his voice,” said Marissa DeLuca. “The Beatles are the soundtrack to my childhood,” she said. “His voice is just kind of like home.”

Aretha Franklin is ‘recovering very well’ DETROIT — Aretha Franklin underwent serious surgery last week and is “recovering very well,” her longtime friend, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, said Wednesday. Jackson said he’s visited with the legendary singer four or Aretha five times re- Franklin cently, including a few days ago, and that Franklin’s “spirits are high, and her faith is strong.” Franklin announced last week that she had undergone a surgical procedure, but neither she, nor her publicist, nor Jackson have said what is ailing the 68year-old Queen of Soul. Last month, Franklin announced she was canceling all concert dates and personal appearances through May on the orders of her doctors. Franklin is one of the most honored singers in American history, having won numerous Grammys, the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She also has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rolling Stone releases last Lennon interview NEW YORK — On the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death, Rolling Stone is releasing what is believed to be his last print interview. Lennon talked to Rolling Stone on Dec. 5, 1980, just three days before being gunned down in front of his New York City apartment building by Mark David Chapman. In the interview, Lennon slammed his critics, saying they want “dead heroes” and said he’s not interesting in being anyone’s dead hero. He also talked about trying to be a good father to young Sean Lennon and mused about the future, saying there was “plenty of time” to explore some of his life’s plans. — From wire reports

Trails Continued from E1 Parks and trails below 5,000 feet — Skyliner, Six Mile in Newberry Crater and trails near Crescent among them — are particularly vulnerable to the warm-up. Upper elevations will have wetter and denser snow, too, he said, which “could make things a little more interesting” up there. “There could be some (trails and parks) that are now becoming marginal,” Sabo said. Users should move slowly and watch for low-snow hazards such as logs, rocks and stumps. The warmer weather is an “OK thing,” Sabo said, because it will help “firm up” the snow and build a solid base under winter trails for the rest of the season. In the short term, however, backcountry users should be cautious because wetter, heavier snow

can cause “some instability on some sensitive slopes.” Users should assess snowpack for avalanche potential and make safe decisions, he said. Deschutes crews have installed around 600 winter signs on snow poles in areas such as Dutchman Flat and Tumalo Mountain. The signs mark trails and boundaries. Crews have about 95 percent of the signs up and will finish the task soon. Even if they’re not yet marked, though, motorized and nonmotorized users should stick to trails and observe boundaries, Sabo said. Also, a reminder: Roads around sno-parks along the Cascade Lakes Highway officially closed to vehicles Dec. 1, so if you’re looking for a Christmas tree, you’ll need to find another way to travel through the forest.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010: This year, you say what you mean, and others respond to your words. You also might purchase new toys that involve communication, from cars to computers. Make sure that you are making sound decisions for you in the long run. Take time for neighbors and siblings. Visit more often. If you are single, you meet people with ease. You might even find yourself dating more than one person. Enjoy. If you are attached, the two of you might opt to take a class together or develop a new hobby. You will delight in more time together. AQUARIUS comes up with wild ideas. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Home in on the bottom line with a partner. If you are feeling weary or tired, know that it has been a stressful week in many ways. Others respond in kind to a goodwill gesture. Let someone explain him- or herself, even if you aren’t interested. Tonight: Dinner for two. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You have different ideas from others. Give those around you the courtesy of weighing their ideas and what they think. You might be surprised by how different yet valid their perspectives are. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Deal directly with others at a distance. If you need to call

in an expert, don’t challenge this person. Your questions need to be phrased most politely, unless you want a firestorm. Positive news allows for a new direction. Tonight: Make plans for a day outing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH Defer to others, knowing full well your limits. Someone whom you consider yourself to be close to steps up to the plate. Gain a better understanding through a chat with a loved one. Vulnerability can open many doors. Tonight: Go with another’s suggestion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Others come forward and express their ideas. Someone also might have an ulterior motive for approaching you. Investigate new possibilities with an eye to another person taking the lead. What a change for you! Tonight: Decide which offer sounds best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Dive into a project with a positive attitude. Others respond. A conversation that concerned you and you thought could be difficult goes off without a hitch! The extra care you put into a relationship -- be it a call, dinner or a card -- pays off. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Honor a commitment to change directions and approach someone in a more upbeat manner. Careful -- you might have a tendency to lavish money all over the place. Caring doesn’t necessarily involve spending. Tonight: Flirt the night away. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH If you think staying home

or a home-based business could be more effective, investigate that possibility. If you are feeling cramped, you just might want to take the day off and do what you absolutely want to do. Tonight: Order in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH You could go way overboard as you attempt to let someone know where you are coming from. Envision what you want and expect. Being unusually gracious wouldn’t hurt, either. In the long run, it is the right way to go. Tonight: Hang with your friends. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Curb a need to use money as a measure of others. Actually, if you detach, you can see that many people have a lot to offer. Walk away from your value system for at least a day. Understand that everyone has limits. Tonight: Buy a treat on the way home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Stop and take a breath. Look around. You might notice an easing off of tension that allows greater give-and-take. Your ability to anchor in on your priorities and convince others to go along emerges. Tonight: Your winning smile says it all. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Understand that by pulling back, you’ll have greater giveand-take. Gather information. Call someone at a distance whom you care about. You discover how good you can feel by not acting out. Tonight: Make weekend plans. © 2010 by King Features Syndicate

Continued from E1 10:42 a.m. — I learn I can spend $6 for a day pass, or $29 for an annual pass. I opted for the day pass. As we headed into the hills on Cascade Lakes Highway, we drove by Virginia Meissner Sno-park and Wanoga Snoplay Area, heading a little farther down to Swampy Lakes, arriving around 11. 11:09 a.m. — I turned my recorder on so I know that was when the snowshoes hit the fan. It would have been smart to get the kids to try them on before leaving the house, but I’ve never claimed to be intelligent. Several of the three pairs I’d brought had cracked plastic, where the part you strap to your sole affixes to the snowshoe’s frame. So much for storing them on the top shelf of the hot garage summer after summer. “Dad, you’re crazy. You think my feet are gonna fit in this?” Lilly supportively said. She could tell at a glance that the old snowshoes were too small to fit on her new boots, but I held on to hope. She was right, of course. That was the tip of the whining iceberg. Without going into detail, I eventually told them, in my whiniest voice, I didn’t want any more whining. As I struggled and juggled snowshoes in the icy cold parking lot, the kids I wasn’t working on wandered around aimlessly, carving glyphs into the snowbank. An elderly man drove up and asked if we bought or rented the small snowshoes. “We bought them, but they’re old, and they’re too small,” I answered, still kneeling and trying to get them on the kids, who were threatening to mutiny at any moment. He started to drive off, but then stopped and called back. “Are you gonna sell ’em?” I paused, contemplating just why the universe would send

this interrogator my way, right at this moment. “Um,” I said. “I haven’t gotten that far in the process.” He laughed and drove off. With six feet and two pairs of functional snowshoes to cover them, I asked the troops: “What do you think? Go to town and buy some that fit?” “That just seems like a waste of time,” replied the oldest, Caroline. “I think if we’re going to get back in the car, we should just go home.” Lilly and Lucy, also 8, didn’t appreciate that bit of wisdom. “Boo!” they weighed in. Lilly wore the snowshoes Caroline used to wear. Lucy upgraded to the ones my wife used to wear. Caroline tried mine, but they were too big. If Goldilocks had shown up to try on some of our snowshoes, the only surprising thing would have been if they were just right. In the end, after almost 15 minutes of this business, I decided something, a rare feat for me as a parent. Lilly and Lucy would wear snowshoes. Caroline and I hoofed it to the trailhead in just boots. “If this is at all enjoyable — and I don’t predict that it will be — we’ll buy some that fit,” I pessimistically promised. “Dad, why aren’t you wearing yours?” Lucy asked. “Solidarity. Solidarity with Caroline.” We stopped and grabbed a map, then commenced walking. “My snowshoe fell off,” Lilly immediately announced. I knelt in the snow and again affixed still another snowshoe to a kid’s foot. Eventually we got going on the trail, a maybe 2-foot-wide notch in the snow. The two of us just wearing boots did fine as long as we didn’t stray from this convenient snowshoe track, which made snowshoes unnecessary. Go figure. We hadn’t gone 200 yards before Lucy announced, “I’m tired.”

“This isn’t very fun,” she, or Lilly, whined a moment later. “Of course it’s fun,” I said. Why would L.L. Bean sell snowshoes if snowshoeing wasn���t fun? “This is miserable, actually,” one of them added. They soon began warming up to the activity. Really. They even did their favorite thing, which is to ask cryptic questions. One worth saving for posterity came from Lucy: “Would you rather have 10 ants in your food, or 10 spiders?” Spiders. They’re not interested in your food, so presumably they’d leave on their own. In this manner, we kept moving. Eventually, everyone shed their snowshoes, which I had the privilege of carrying. We would not complete the entire loop, but that was OK with me. The girls began to enjoy the scenery, trading the camera and taking pictures of the sunny, snow-shrouded forest. “Can I get my photo credit in the newspaper?” Caroline asked. Yeesh, are kids media-savvy. For the next 40 minutes, we stomped around the forest, a trek which included the amazing spider sighting. “It’s dying,” Lucy lamented. “No,” I said. “If it’s out, it knows what it’s doing,” which could have been the case, maybe. Lucy soon told me her feet were freezing. “You’re kind of whining a lot. You’re just going to get quoted in the newspaper.” “Daa-aad.” “Do you want to put these on so you don’t keep sinking in snow?” I offered, holding up a snowshoe. “They’re broken.” “They are broken.” More walking through the forest. We settled into a cadence, with me urging, “Keep walking, guys,” every time they stopped, which was every dozen or so yards. That’s a noticeable improvement over our hikes of just a few years ago, when they couldn’t make it two feet before stopping to look at something. “Hey guys,” I asked as we neared the van. “What did you think?” “It’s kinda fun,” one of them said. We never got very far on our outing, true. But for that kind of answer, which signified some kind of progress, they would receive a reward — hot chocolate and baked goods back in Bend. With luck, there would be neither spiders nor ants in the food. David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or djasper@bendbulletin.com.

Under the influence Oregon’s program for doctors battling addiction shifts focus from treatment to monitoring By Markian Hawryluk • The Bulletin

I

t’s an almost unfathomable scenario: a doctor under the influence of alcohol treating patients, or a surgeon operating while

abusing narcotics. But it happens. Doctors are human. They make mistakes both in patient care and in their personal lives. And all their medical knowledge or years of training cannot protect them against the diseases and afflictions that affect all of mankind, whether heart disease, cancer or addiction. As the medical establishment has come to view substance abuse as an illness, rather than a moral failure, programs have been put in place to encourage health professionals to come forward, to seek help before their addiction problems escalate and affect patient care with tragic consequenc- M E D I C I N E es. Such diversion programs offer doctors a confidential safe haven, a way to get into treatment without losing their licenses or being exposed to their patients. The programs are intended to ensure doctors’ addictions are behind them before they are entrusted again with patients’ lives. Oregon had one of the first such diversion programs in the nation. The state’s Health Professionals Program served as a model for many other states after it was introduced more than two decades ago. Over the years, nearly nine out of every 10 doctors enrolled in the program successfully completed their treatment and monitoring, and most returned to practice. And its founders maintain there was not a single case of patient harm attributable to a physician impaired while in the program. Yet despite its success, on July 1, the program was summarily ended and replaced with a monitoring program expressly forbidden by state law from providing any treatment. And now physicians are worried that the new program will discourage doctors from coming forward about their own addictions or those of a colleague. And that could represent a major step backward in protecting patients. See Doctors / F4

Doctors: Would you tell? A national survey of physicians published earlier this year found that only two-thirds of doctors would report an impaired or incompetent colleague to hospital or clinic authorities. Of the 309 doctors who said they knew of somebody with an impairment, 204 (66%) said they had reported that colleague to a relevant authority. Physicians should report all impaired or incompetent colleagues 64% Very or somewhat prepared to deal with impaired colleagues 69% Had direct knowledge of a physician who was impaired or incompetent 17% Of those with direct knowledge, reported impaired or incompetent colleague 66% 0

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Yoga has many proven health benefits, but does it stand up to other forms of exercise? Researchers pitted it against a walking routine and found that those who practiced yoga showed greater improvements in mood and anxiety. Researchers randomly assigned 19 people to an Iyengar yoga program and 15 to a regular

walking regimen. Both groups took part in the programs for an hour three times a week for 12 weeks. Study participants were tested several times to measure mood and anxiety.

Next week No more sit-ups: More exercises from Cherie Touchette at Juniper Swim & Fitness.

Jeffrey Lesk, right, teaches a fitness class at Energy Fitness Metro Center in Washington, D.C. Lesk started out as a student, but decided to lead the class one day when an instructor didn’t show up. Soon he became a certified instructor — but he also kept his job as the managing partner of a law firm.

INMOTION It’s no tall tale: Height does give you an advantage when walking Struggling to keep up with your long-legged walking partner? It’s not just you. New research has shown that pound for pound, taller people are more efficient walkers than shorter people. Researchers from Southern Methodist University and the Baylor College of Medicine measured the metabolic rates of children and adults ranging in age from 5 to 32, weighing between 35 and 196

pounds, ranging in height from 3½ to 6 feet. They found that regardless of height, all walkers used the same amount of energy per pound of body weight with every stride. Taller walkers, they found, are more economical than shorter walkers because their longer strides cover the same distance in fewer steps without expending more energy. — Markian Hawryluk, The Bulletin

Fitness instructors aren’t quitting their day jobs ‘You make the time even if you might get a little less sleep one day’ By Vicky Hallet The Washington Post

I know that the man in gray spandex shorts yelling out, “I want you to beg me for mercy!” is Jeffrey Lesk, the 56-year-old managing partner of the D.C. office of Nixon Peabody, a law firm. But to the dozen other folks perched on bikes and pedaling like mad, he’s just Jeff, the guy who teaches cycling classes at Energy Fitness Metro Center. His double life began eight years ago, when he’d gotten into the habit of dashing out of the office on his lunch break to take classes. “There were always those situations when you’re dressed and ready to go and the instructor doesn’t show,” says Lesk, who one day decided to pick up the slack by hopping on the bike in the front of the room. Next thing you know, he was a certified instructor. But don’t expect Lesk to give up his legal practice anytime soon. In Washington, he’d have to ride all day to make a living with this gig; most group exercise instructors get a free gym member-

ship and a stipend per class, usually between $25 and $50. That’s why most of the perky people you’ll find teaching kickboxing, step and yoga have a day job. And often, it’s a demanding one. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that such high-energy personalities gravitate toward highpowered work, and yet, it does. The question Lesk always gets in the locker room after shucking the spandex, showering and putting his suit back on is, “How do you do it?” Most of us kvetch about not being able to make it to the gym at all, let alone develop lesson plans and pick a soundtrack for hourlong workouts. But it’s a matter of putting it in your calendar and sticking with it. “You make the time even if you might get a little less sleep one day,” says Jennifer Shevchek, a 31-year-old lobbyist for the American Medical Association who moonlights as a Pilates instructor at Results. It helps that the majority of group exercise classes are scheduled around the 9-to-5 workday,

so instructors are usually called into duty before or after work, or on weekends. Or, in the case of Hansen Mak, all of the above. Mak, a 32-year-old adviser to the deputy undersecretary of the Air Force for international affairs, has his hands full teaching Spinning at three gyms, but knowing that rooms are packed with people waiting for his strobe lights, playlists and choreography keeps him motivated. “It forces you to go,” he says. Leona Agouridis, 49, executive director of D.C.’s Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, knows exactly what would have happened if she hadn’t been teaching Zumba, BodyPump and every other conceivable class as a sideline since 1986. “I’d be fat,” she jokes. She would also be much less fun to be around, as she uses her class time to de-stress and forget about the pressures of work. “When you go in to teach a class, you have to be focused for that hour. If you take your eye off it, you fall apart,” she says. Not that her two careers are

entirely unrelated, Agouridis adds. Both require creativity and encourage her to strive for improvement. For other instructors, the connection is even more apparent. Take Meaghan Parker, who spends her days at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History employed as a molecular biologist. When the 35-year-old talks to her Pilates classes about anatomy, the scientist in her can’t help but get giddy. “I geek out on muscles and bones,” she admits. Co-workers seem to have a knack for finding out about these side gigs. But the greatest hazard of letting the word get out isn’t around-the-watercooler mockery. It’s the constant hounding for fitness advice and tips on handling mysterious injuries. As for Lesk, he’s proud his outside activities have helped foster a pro-health environment at the law firm. “People are never nervous walking by my office with a gym bag,” says Lesk, who has also organized a weekly on-site yoga class and an office-wide bike-sharing program.

Taller walkers are more economical than their shorter counterparts, researchers have found.

Reflective Continued from F1 “The idea is to make it something that fits well, wicks and breathes,” Mosca adds. City Sports is raising awareness through its run clubs, including a recent reflectivitythemed night to introduce customers to what to wear in lowlight conditions. It’s been shoppers doing the educating at Lululemon, which was flooded with requests for reflective gear. So this summer, the brand launched “Run: Reflection,” a line of pieces made with a fabric woven with reflective yarns so “it looks like you’re shimmering,” describes Amanda Casgar, Lululemon’s regional community guru. Non-traditional cuts — including a racer-back vest ($98) — and wild plaid patterns are aiming to make safety chic. “We’re not in the business of making hideous clothing,” adds Casgar, who notes that more items, including shorts and a pullover, will be available in stores by Thanksgiving. Will this be a fitness fad that just runs its course? Not according to Mosca. “This is what we’ll be carrying going forward,” he says. That probably includes Under Armour’s new line of run wear that made its debut at the Baltimore Running Festival ear-

lier this month. Marathoners and staff sported shirts in a super bright yellow, which will be all over jackets, half-zips and other garments scheduled to be on sale starting in January. That’s one high-visibility way to promote high visibility. Reflective refuseniks often believe they’re fine outside as long as they’re not dressed like ninjas. “We’ve all heard not to wear all black,” says Shari FranklinSmith, a reflectivity expert for 3M. But she doesn’t give light-colored fabrics glowing reviews, either, since they’re still only visible from 300 feet. That’s why 3M is pushing a new campaign, “No White At Night,” featuring a video proving how hard it can be to spot runners without reflective attire, along with products that boast its “360 degree enhanced visibility” standard. “If you’re running at a 90 degree-angle to traffic, and it’s all on the front or back, the person isn’t visible,” Franklin-Smith explains. Although it would be possible to make a garment entirely out of reflective material, less is more. When there are bits of reflectivity at biomotion points, “the brain can fill in that’s a person,” Franklin-Smith says. A completely reflective blob might instead look like a giant traffic cone. “You may see it but not recognize it as human,” she said.

Move the folks on your list with gifts of exercise DVDs By Vicky Hallett The Washington Post

Jane Fonda was certain her leotard days were behind her. But then the 72-year-old realized that even though she was aging, workout DVDs weren’t, so she came out of retirement. “No one else wants to admit that they’re old,” says Fonda, who’s back in business with her just released “Prime Time” series aimed at seniors. This year, you can wrap up the gift of fitness for just about anyone on your list. Here are a few discs worth considering, whether you’re looking for a senior-friendly sweat, a killer-abs solution or a chance to cut a rug.

Mild side “Jane Fonda: Prime Time Fit & Strong” The original fitness-video queen manages to hit all the major muscle groups and squeeze in a stretch in both 25-minute workouts, which double as motivational lectures for seniors. $15. “Keeping Fit With Andrea Metcalf” Seasoned instructor Metcalf breaks down your needs into “Strength,” “Cardio” and “Pilates.” Each of the three discs has 10 five-

M Doctors Continued from F1 “The Health Professionals program really was one of the better run, if not the best run, programs that I’d ever been involved in. I think it really did a good job of protecting the public, meeting the needs of the participants and really had remarkable outcomes,” said Glenn Maynard, a substance abuse counselor for more than 30 years and former chair of the supervisory council for the program. “To basically destroy that without a clear rationale — at least, not a clear rationale in my mind — it kind of defies logic.”

‘A better way’ The Health Professionals Program grew out of a state committee created in the late ’70s by the Oregon Medical Association to address concerns about alcoholism among doctors working in hospitals. “We started doing interventions, sending people to treatment,” said Dr. Kent Neff, a psychiatrist working at Providence Hospital in Portland at the time who chaired the committee. “But then people started relapsing, and we realized there needed to be a better way.” The medical association decided to fund what it called a monitored treatment program, where Neff and other addiction specialists could monitor physicians in recovery. The board initially turned 25 doctors over to the committee for monitoring. But suicide rates among doctors disciplined for substance abuse issues began to spike. Of the 43 physicians placed on probation in Oregon in 1977, eight committed suicide and two more made serious attempts. In response, the board and the medical association decided to create a formal diversion program, allowing physicians to seek treatment without first being reported to the board. In the first year, 80 percent of the doctors who enrolled in the program were sent there by the medical board. Within two years, it had flipped, Neff said, and 80 percent of doctors coming into the program were self-referred. The program was so successful, he said, that the medical board had expressed concern that it wasn’t seeing as many disciplinary cases as it had in the past. “It can be managed quite successfully,” Neff said. “We’ve demonstrated that over and over again. We salvage a professional and we also create a safe environment for doctors to come forward.” But other professions weren’t nearly as successful. Several years ago, a similar program run for nurses in Oregon became embroiled in scandal. Overwhelmed by a much larger caseload and insufficient resources, the nurses’ monitoring program missed nurses who had relapsed. Legislators including Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, became worried that all of the state’s diversion programs were too lax and were in desperate need of tighter regulation. “All of them were being run completely differently,” Greenlick said. “The monitoring and the treatment role was getting all mixed up.” Greenlick was particularly concerned that the treatment programs bound by confidentiality laws couldn’t tell a licensing board if a doctor or nurse had relapsed. State legislators debated what to do about the problem over several legislative sessions. “It really was a pretty soft program,” Greenlick said of the physician program. “If they would screw up and (the program manager) would talk to them, and decide that it was OK, then they were back taking drugs again while taking care of patients.” Last year, with a push from the governor’s office, legislators led by Greenlick passed a new law creating a single monitoring program for health professionals. If the boards that license doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dentists want a diversion program for their licensees, as of July 1, they are required to use the new combined Health Professionals Services Program. Under the new program, the state contracts with a private organization, Reliant Behavioral Health in Portland, to monitor doctors, nurses and other health

professionals for substance abuse and mental health problems. The law spells out exactly what infractions have to be reported to the licensing board. The law also makes a clear division between monitoring and treatment, stipulating that the licensee is responsible for his or her own treatment. “If they fail the monitoring program, regardless of what’s going on in the treatment program, the board is informed,” Greenlick said. Officials from the new program declined requests for an interview, but offered a written explanation of the differences between the old and new programs. “The previous programs were largely based on therapeutic models,” Department of Human Services officials wrote. “The current program does not diagnose or treat participants in the program. The diversion agreements do contain a treatment element, but all therapeutic evaluations and treatment are provided outside the statutory program.” As of July 1, all of the participants in the old diversion programs were required to sign agreements with the new monitoring program or be reported as noncompliant to their board.

A step backward? For many physicians in the old program, the shift raised major concerns. “It’s a big change in the sense that the board and the state government have taken a turn away from a disease model of addiction, and toward one in which now it seems to be more of a punitive model,” said one Bend doctor in recovery who spoke on condition of anonymity. “It’s turned from a focus on treatment of a physician with the disease of addiction with the end point having a better physician and a safer public, to just being a policing and monitoring function, which doesn’t do much for treatment, and I don’t believe does much for increasing the safety of anyone.” The doctor had entered the diversion program six years ago, after becoming addicted to pain pills legally prescribed to him for an injury. Knowing he needed help, he voluntarily entered the diversion program and completed a 60-day inpatient rehabilitation program in Newberg. Over the past six years, he has attended weekly group therapy sessions and taken random drug tests. He has never failed one. He has since been released from the program, but continues to attend group therapy sessions and to practice medicine. “There’s no doubt in my mind that physicians need to be aware that they can hurt people if they’re intoxicated. So what do you do with that reality? Do you just have them stop being physicians or do you get them real help?” he said. “But now, I would think twice about sending a friend to get involved with the program.” Many physicians formerly or currently in the program have expressed dismay about the change in approach and have vowed not to refer their addicted colleagues. The old program was seen as a way to treat physicians. And if the doctor entered the program voluntarily, rather than as a result of a complaint or incident, the medical board would never know. Under the new law, any slipup, regardless of whether it’s within the context of patient care, regardless of the circumstances, is reported to the licensing board. “I think that the main thing that needed to come out of this, and the purpose around the legislation, is public protection and consistency in what is reported as noncompliance,” said Holly Mercer, executive director for the Oregon Board of Nursing. “I think the statute did a pretty good job of that. There are statutory line items for noncompliance, and so all of the boards that are in this program have the same noncompliance reports coming through.” The boards then have some latitude in determining whether the individual has violated the compliance agreement and what to do about it. But those providers lose their confidentiality before the board. Mercer said the prior nursing diversion program was never meant to be a treatment pro-

“These doctors have a better understanding of addiction than most of us who are not in recovery. … I’ve seen dozens of physicians use their own knowledge of recovery to help patients get into recovery. There are a lot of reasons why we should deal with these doctors in a compassionate way.” — Dr. Kent Neff, who chaired the committee that was the forerunner of the state’s Health Professionals Program

gram, but the board has heard complaints from nurses about a perceived lack of flexibility from the new program. “I think the hard part is how much room do you give them?” she said. “I think you always have to be cognizant of the public safety lens, because in the end, yes, we would all like to give them a lot of chances and give them the benefit of the doubt, but lines are crossed.” By clearly delineating what constitutes noncompliance, Mercer said, the new law gives nurses a better chance of avoiding problems.

Learning curve But Neff and other individuals who ran the old program for doctors disagree about the hard-line stance set up by the new law. “There’s a learning curve,” he said. “Some people who will do just great don’t get it at first. And as long as they don’t constitute a danger to the public, which has been demonstrated can be done safely, then it’s much better in the long run to do it the other way. Something big has been lost, and time will tell how well it works.” Under the old diversion program for doctors, about 16 percent of those enrolled relapsed early in the program, but the recidivism rate declined as doctors were in the program longer. And more than half of the relapses were reported to program officials by the doctor himself. “The board let us work with people as long as they were safe to practice, or we would take them out of practice,” Neff said. “There was an in-between area where you could help somebody get on track without yanking their license. Now it’s more likely to be cut and dried.” Neff fears that means physicians will cease to refer their colleagues to the new program. “Unless they trust that the doctor is going to be dealt with fairly and confidentially, it’s very likely that many people will not refer,” he said. “You can’t really tell easily upfront whether there���s a problem or not. So people will opt for, ‘Well, it doesn’t look so bad,’ and they won’t report, and an opportunity is missed to get somebody into recovery. It’s going to be much less safe for the people of Oregon.” Jenn Steinberg, medical staff manager for St. Charles Health System in Bend, Redmond and Prineville, said she’s heard many concerns from local physicians about the new program, and that there’s a reluctance to refer people to the program. “If any of their associates need to get into (recovery) programs, they’re telling them they prob-

ably want to get into something out of the state,” Steinberg said. “And that’s the really sad thing about that. It’s going to be a secret, and we don’t want that to be a secret.” Under the old program, hospital officials knew which physicians were enrolled in the diversion program. The program relies on employers to help monitor those physicians when they return to work. “My understanding in talking to physicians is that they are concerned that their licenses will be affected. But that’s from a physician standpoint. From the patient standpoint and the public standpoint, this is an excellent thing,” Steinberg said. “We all want to protect patients, but as with all things, it takes some time to get used to it.” Steinberg, who is also president of the Oregon Association of Medical Staff Managers, has heard from her counterparts in California that physicians there are not reporting impaired colleagues to the board. California eliminated its physician diversion program in 2008. “They’re getting them into programs that are private and not reporting to the state, which is a huge risk to their license and to the hospital’s liability,” she said. “You want to follow state law and I know this facility will follow the rules. They will report.” In a recent survey of doctors published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, a third of doctors nationwide said they would not report an impaired or incompetent colleague. Oregon physicians have complained to the Board of Medical Examiners and to state officials. But DHS officials said their hands are tied by the new law. “The goal is public safety, and it’s statutorily driven,” said Keely West, a DHS spokeswoman. “We make some selections about implementation, but the statute limits what we can do.” Greenlick discounts the notion that the new program is overly punitive to doctors. “Substance abuse treatment programs actually work, but the main problem is getting people in treatment, and coercion ends up keeping people in treatment,” he said. “I’m not worried about having a fair amount of coercion in the program, because I think it will help those doctors get clean.” The Board of Medical Examiners, meanwhile, took no position on the new law. The board is formally a state entity and therefore reports to the governor and the state legislators. “Remember that to practice medicine is a privilege, it’s not

a right,” said Kathleen Haley, executive director of the medical board. “If there’s an identified substance abuse problem that could cause impairment in the workplace, then if the physician wants to continue to practice, they have to cooperate with what the program believes will keep that individual safe relative to patient care. That’s the board’s primary concern, patient safety.” Haley said she’s heard the complaints about the new program, but wants to give the contractor time before making a judgment about how it will work. “It’s a new program; it’s only been in operation since July,” she said. “I think we need to see over time. The contractor didn’t have a lot of time to get up to speed and get 400 people signed up, and be ready to go with a flip of a switch. It was pretty abrupt for everyone.”

Over a barrel Doctors are also concerned about the absolute power wielded by the diversion programs. When a doctor enters a program, he or she agrees to follow its directives. Doctors who were in either the old or new program say both programs offered little room for negotiations and no chance to appeal or argue your case. “After you sign agreements that they get to talk with your supervisor, they get to talk with your spouse, your family, your doctors, and they can say whatever they want to these people,” said a physician in the program practicing on the Oregon Coast, who shared her experiences on condition of anonymity. “You have no control over it anymore. Doctors that feel that they’re unjustly in the program have learned that if they disagree with anything in their treatment plan, that they will be seen as noncompliant or in denial or in relapse, and there’s kind of a conspiracy of silence all around that. If they go along with it, they’ll get out in five years.” The doctor first contacted the old program four years ago, when a medication for an asthma attack exacerbated her depression. Clinically manic for the first time in her life, she took a leave of absence to get her health under control and contacted the diversion program to ensure her medical license wouldn’t be at risk. At the time, the program didn’t have a protocol for dealing with doctors with mental illness unless they had a chemical dependency problem. She was told the only way to get an authorization to return to work was to have the Board of Medical Examiners open a full investigation. Unaware of the potential consequences, she agreed. But when the board investigated, it issued a corrective action order, announcing the doctor’s mental illness to the pubic. The local newspaper published the details. The board referred her to the Health Professionals Program, where she was mandated to participate in a 12-step recovery program and to discontinue two of the medications prescribed for her men-

tal illness. She could not even choose her own psychiatrist or psychologist. When she tried to claim a right to privacy, autonomy and religious freedom — she objected to what she considered religious components in her mandated Alcoholics Anonymous treatment — she was threatened with a suspension of her license. She has an ongoing lawsuit against the board. She has since been released from the program, but the board’s findings remain a blemish on her record. “I don’t want to throw out the baby with the bath water; there are doctors whose lives have been saved by this system,” she said. “But there are doctors whose lives have been destroyed by it.” While physicians undoubtedly gain protections by voluntarily opting for diversion, many believe they must give up their due process rights to do so. “They’re guilty until proved innocent,” one doctor said. When a local physician in the program received his new monitoring agreement to sign this summer, he was stunned to read the materials he received from Reliant Behavioral Health. “There were about 20 things we weren’t supposed to do, including watching pornography in the office; not supposed to touch women in a sexual manner on their breasts, buttocks, between their legs. That’s forbidden. We’re not supposed to masturbate in front of patients, they’re not supposed to masturbate in front of us. It was this bizarre litany of sexual things we weren’t supposed to do with the patient,” he said. “I guess they figured that addiction and alcoholism are deviances, why not add another form of deviancy while they’re at it?” The forms required him to release all medical records, including any genetic or HIV testing. The doctor called the board to complain, and within a few days was told simply that it had all been a big mistake. The irony, the doctor said, is that he sees two to three people a day who deal with their own or a family member’s substance abuse issues. An estimated 10 percent of the population has an alcohol or drug addiction, and the number for doctors is no different. “Addiction and alcoholism, it’s the elephant in the living room, and their whole response is you’re some kind of a deviant,” he said. The doctor believes he was the last physician in Central Oregon to have entered the Health Professionals Program two year ago. That is, until recently. “I know a couple of physicians like that who are attending AA, who are laying low because they don’t want to enter this program,” he said in September. “But I don’t blame them. If I knew what I was getting into, I would have tried some other option.” Only weeks later, one of those two physicians was arrested for driving under the influence and sent into rehab by the Board of Medical Examiners. Luckily, no one was injured in the incident. Continued next page

M Germ inspector helps cut down on hospital infections By Lauran Neergaard The Associated Press

BALTIMORE — This is no ordinary intensive care unit: Every doctor, nurse, friend or loved one must cover their clothes with a bright yellow gown and don purple gloves before entering a patient’s room so scary germs don’t hitch a ride in or out. It’s part of the University of Maryland Medical Center’s crackdown on hospital-spread infections, and Michael Anne Preas patrols the ICU like a cop on the beat. You forgot your gloves, she tells a doctorin-training who’s about to examine a man with a breathing tube. The resident immediately washes his hands and grabs a pair. Peering at the IV tube in another patient’s neck, Preas spots a different opening for bacteria: His beard is messing up what should be an airtight seal. Let’s shave that spot and put in a new catheter, she tells the nurse. Infections caught at health care facilities are one of the nation’s leading causes of preventable death, claiming an estimated 99,000 lives a year. Yet chances are you’ve never heard

of Preas’ job: She’s an infection preventionist, part of an evolution under way as hospitals are pushed to slash those rates or lose lucrative Medicare dollars. “You have to be out and about,” says Preas, who with a team of four other specialists checks parts of this large Baltimore teaching hospital for infection-control steps. The program is unusual. There are only about 8,000 to 10,000 infection preventionists nationwide, according to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. But it’s starting to pay off: This surgical ICU has gone 24 weeks without a case of one of the most insidious hospital infections, where bacteria infiltrate the bloodstream through an easy-to-contaminate IV catheter called a central line. Hospital-wide, those central line infections have dropped 70 percent in the past year. “Every single nurse and doctor and staff member who touches a patient can either prevent or not prevent an infection from occurring,” says chief medical officer Dr. Jonathan Gottlieb.

From previous page But despite the potential risk, the internist is still not ready to report other doctors or to force them into what he sees as a punitive program. “The notion is you’re going to make the punishment onerous enough so that people aren’t going to do it,” he said. “Well, that’s not how it works. You’re still going to have a problem with alcoholism. They’re just not going to get help. And they’re going to be a danger to themselves and a problem to their family. So really, all this big routine they’ve got going has just really made the whole thing worse.”

Finding balance At the heart of the debate over the change is the fundamental question of how society should deal with addiction. Although society has always tried to discourage substance abuse with strong criminal penalties, addiction has been recognized as a disease process also requiring treatment. Diversion programs, then, must walk the fine line between establishing a deterrent and encouraging professionals to come forward when they have a problem. “In our culture, we’ve gone back and forth between those two positions,” said Maynard. “I think the structure of (the new program) is really, in my opinion, a very clear move of the pendulum away from treatment and toward punishment.” Maynard maintains that will discourage providers from voluntary participation. Doctors and nurses may try to handle the problem on their own and fail, or continue to try to hide their problem. And that could increase the risk of impaired providers causing patients harm. “I think that the net effect of this law is actually to put the public at greater risk,” Maynard said. “If I was a physician, I wouldn’t want to be going into that program, which is really unfortunate, because I would have said the exact opposite before.” Previously, if a doctor came in on a voluntary basis, the pro-

gram would help him stay sober and get his personal and professional life back, Maynard said. “Now that’s not so much the case.” The statute provides for an independent audit of the new monitoring program after its first year, but Greenlick said it’s unlikely the success or failure of the program will be evident so quickly. He hopes that in the long run the program will prove effective at identifying those providers who do relapse for appropriate discipline, and to encourage providers with problems to enter treatment voluntarily. “These boards have a big problem of balancing between protecting the public on one hand and enhancing the profession on the other. And this comes right at the interface of those two objectives,” he said. “Would it be useful if 10 percent of nurses were busted out and reported to the police

FA C T VS. FICTION THE CLAIM:

There’s no point in getting a flu vaccination after November. THE REALITY: That’s definitely a myth, said Dr. Richard Fawcett, an infectious disease specialist and health officer at the Deschutes County Health Department. It takes two to three weeks after a vaccination for the body to develop immunity to the influenza virus, said Fawcett. Given that influenza season typically peaks in Central Oregon in late January or even February, getting vaccinated even

well into the beginning of the year is prudent, he said. “We have some cases in April,” Fawcett said, so a vaccination as late as March could prevent some cases of the flu. For those who have not yet been vaccinated, call your county’s health department or your physician. — Betsy Q. Cliff, The Bulletin

Use of CT scans rises, but how safe are they? Questions arise about costs, radiation exposure By Shari Roan Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Use of CT scans in hospital emergency rooms has risen 16 percent per year since 1995, raising questions about unnecessary radiation exposure and how health care costs can be contained against such fervent use of technology. In a recent study in the journal Radiology, researchers found use of computed tomography procedures increased from 2.7 million nationwide in 1995 to 16.2 million in 2007. The study was based on the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, an annual sample of more than 30,000 emergency-room visits each year. But little research has been done to show if the popularity of CT scanning, which uses a focused beam of X-rays to provide a cross-section view of soft tissues, has helped patients. Still, “For people with serious illness, the risk of having a CT

because they were back stealing drugs out of patients’ cabinets in nursing homes? Yeah, that would be a success. But it would also be a success if 90 percent of them weren’t. You can’t set any numbers, which makes for a very complicated analysis.” Previous analyses suggest, however, that diversion programs for physicians have been much more successful than programs for the general public. A study of court-mandated treatments for addiction found that while the participants do well during their treatment program, 48 percent of them relapse after their program has ended and 31 percent are re-arrested within one year. In contrast, a study of more than 900 physicians participating in 16 different state physician health programs found that 22 percent had failed urine tests in the five years after completing their treatment program.

exam is outweighed by the benefits,” said Dr. David Larson, lead author of the study and a radiologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The hard part, he added, is when it’s not clear whether the exam will help. Larson said more research is needed to verify that CT scans improve patient outcomes. Health insurance companies may force the issue. Insurers increasingly are insisting on approving nonemergency or outpatient CT requests. Overuse is a concern not just because of cost but because of radiation exposure. Recent studies suggest patients may be harmed by the overuse of medical imaging technology. In a 2006 report, the National Research Council found that one in every 1,000 people who gets 10 millisieverts of radiation will develop cancer. A CT scan of the head, cervical spine, chest, abdomen and pelvis adds up to 37 mSv, the report found.

19 percent were no longer practicing medicine. “Society invests a great deal in our physicians. Even through physicians end up with an average of $120,000, $150,000 in debt now, it costs far more than that to educate a physician. We have a looming physician shortage; these doctors can be salvaged, can be made into better physicians,” Neff said. “These doctors have a better understanding of addiction than most of us who are not in recovery. They have a leg up in dealing with patients, and I’ve seen dozens of physicians use their own knowledge of recovery to help patients get into recovery. There are a lot of reasons why we should deal with these doctors in a compassionate way.” Markian Hawryluk can be reached at 541-617-7814 or at mhawryluk@bendbulletin.com.

M Database on doctors’ ties to drug companies has its issues Information may muddy the waters for consumers, physicians caution

make this information available in their waiting rooms.”

Case-by-case basis

By Judith Graham Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Late last month, after the launch of a new database detailing doctors’ financial ties with drug companies, Dr. Daniel Carlat sat at his computer and began searching for information about colleagues. He found several doctors who had potentially compromising relationships with the pharmaceutical industry. But he was surprised to find that several other physicians he considered “very ethical people” had received thousands of dollars in payments from pharmaceutical firms. “You don’t want to use a very broad brush to characterize all the physicians” listed in this database, said Carlat, an outspoken Massachusetts psychiatrist and frequent critic of his profession. Some may be top-notch clinicians or researchers, while others may have questionable credentials. How, then, should consumers interpret information they find in the new ProPublica database, the first to make extensive information about drug company payments to doctors easily accessible?

Some guidelines Here are things you should consider: • Recognize that extensive research has found that small payments can sway doctors, even subconsciously, while influencing the medications they prescribe to patients. Many doctors discredit the research; others say the evidence is clear and convincing. “All protestations to the contrary, the evidence shows that physicians are susceptible to influence,” said Dr. Adriane FughBerman, director of PharmedOut, a Georgetown University Medical Center project that educates doctors about how drug companies influence prescribing practices. • Make sure the drugs you’re taking are safe, effective and appropriate for the medical condition. If your doctor has ties with a drug company, find out whether the medications you’re taking are made by the same company. If so, ask your physician about the drugs, why they’re right for you and whether equally effective, less expensive alternatives are available. • Try not to adopt a confrontational posture that might put your doctor on the defensive. Ask open-ended questions such as, “Can you tell me more about your relationship with Company X?” or “Can you give me more information about this medication?” said Guy Chisolm, director of the conflict-of-interest program at the Cleveland Clinic, the first academic medical center to disclose physicians’ ties to the pharmaceutical industry on its Web site. • Get a second opinion if you have any concerns about the therapies you’re undergoing. “If what you learn about your doctor is making you anxious in any way, get an opinion from another expert,” said David Rothman, president of the Institute on Medicine as a Profession and professor of social medicine at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. • Consider looking for another doctor if you get an angry response or the cold shoulder. “I don’t think the fact that someone is making money from drug companies based on their expertise is necessarily a bad thing, but I don’t think doctors should hide it either,” said Dr. Walter Stadler, a professor of medicine and associate dean for clinical research at the University of Chicago Medical Center. “Doctors shouldn’t be ashamed of what they’re doing, and maybe, if they are, they shouldn’t be doing it.” • Try to put the information in perspective. “If you have a doctor who’s given a talk or two, that’s

Thinkstock

The new ProPublica database, which launched last month, is the first to make extensive information about drug company payments to doctors easily accessible.

Putting an end to freebies for physicians Two years ago, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America adopted voluntary guidelines calling for drug companies to stop giving doctors free pens, calendars, sporting bags or tickets to entertainment events. Similarly, the American Medical Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American College of Physicians have recommended that physicians stop accepting gifts, free travel to educational conferences and expensive meals at fancy restaurants. The most comprehensive examination of the relationships between physicians and the drug industry comes from an April not worth losing sleep over,” said Dr. Jerry Avorn, a professor at Harvard Medical School. “But if your doctor is making tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, that’s a different story.”

Cause for concern? The ProPublica database (propublica.org/topic/dollars-for-doctors) examines payments in 2009 and the first half of 2010 from drug companies to doctors for lectures, consulting or advisory services, and a few other types of activity. Funding for research is not included. ProPublica assembled the information from public reports posted online by Eli Lilly and Co., GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer Inc., AstraZeneca, Merck & Co., Johnson & Johnson and Cephalon Inc. All drug and medical-device companies will be required to publicly disclose payments to physicians by 2013 under new federal legislation. In recent weeks, hundreds of thousands of people have looked at the information, according to ProPublica, an independent investigative news organization. Michele Friedman, 42, of Chicago, said she’s curious about her doctor and plans to check the database. “I examine every possible source of information about a therapy or a drug before I decide on it,” said Friedman, who is selfemployed and pays for her own health insurance. “After all, it’s my health.” Like Friedman, most people want to know about physicians’ relationships with the drug industry, and many worry about the potential impact on the doctor-patient relationship, according to a new survey of 1,250 adults issued last week by Consumer Reports. That report, based on phone interviews conducted in October, found that 77 percent of respondents said they would be “very” or “somewhat” concerned about the quality of their medical treatment if they learned their doctor received payments from pharmaceutical firms. Seventy-four percent said they disapproved of physicians receiving such payments for promoting drugs to other doctors. Seventy percent of consumers said they wanted their doctors to raise the issue if the doctor was planning to prescribe a product from the company involved. Only 2 percent said their doctors had acknowledged taking payments from drug companies.

2007 article by researchers from Harvard Medical School and Yale University’s School of Public Health. In a survey of 1,662 doctors conducted in late 2003 and early 2004, it found: • 94 percent reported some type of relationship with drug companies. • 83 percent received food at work from firms. • 78 percent got drug samples. • 35 percent were reimbursed for attending professional meetings or continuing medical education sessions. • 28 percent were paid for consulting, giving lectures or enrolling patients in clinical trials. — Chicago Tribune Recognizing the concern, several physicians said they were taking another look at their practices. “I haven’t offered patients this information to date, but, clearly, this issue of disclosure has gained a lot of traction, and I think we’re going to have to change how we do things,” said Dr. Peter Toth, a family practitioner in Sterling, Ill., who earned $185,002 from drug companies in 2009 and the first half of 2010. “I think if doctors brought this up with patients, most wouldn’t have any problem,” said Dr. James Webster, a professor of medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and president emeritus of the Chicago Board of Health. “As far as I’m concerned, I think doctors should

Separately, a June 2008 poll of 1,009 adults released by the Pew Prescription Project found that 64 percent of Americans think it’s important to know about their doctors’ financial ties to drug companies. Respondents took a dim view of several activities, with 86 percent saying that companies shouldn’t give free dinners to physicians, and 80 percent saying that payments for serving on speakers bureaus shouldn’t be allowed. In patient surveys and focus groups, people have told the Cleveland Clinic repeatedly that “they thought they had a right to know” what doctors are making from the drug industry, Chisolm said. It’s not enough to list companies with which physicians are affiliated, he said, people want hard numbers and a better understanding of what doctors are doing. That also is true for the institutions where physicians work, which have varying standards for what they consider a conflict of interest. At what point scrutiny should be triggered is ambiguous. “It’s a little like pornography: I can’t tell you what the level is, but I know it when I see it,” Stadler, of the University of Chicago, said. But, as a general rule, “once payments to a doctor get above $25,000 a year from a big pharmaceutical company, I start paying more attention to the details of what’s going on,” Stadler said. That can include finding out whether a doctor is doing company-sponsored research or using only products from those companies. Ultimately, the decision to find out whether there are ties between a doctor and a drug firm depends on the circumstances. Bonnie Carney, 54, of Chicago said she almost surely would not look up her longtime internist because “she’s very commonsensical, practical and she understands my lifestyle.” But if she were referred to a specialist, Carney said, she might turn to the ProPublica database before making an appointment.

Wrinkle in health law costs children’s hospitals By Robert Pear New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — In an unintended consequence of the new health care law, drug companies have begun notifying children’s hospitals that they no longer qualify for large discounts on drugs used to treat rare medical conditions. As a result, prices are going up for these specialized “orphan drugs,” some of which are also used to treat more common conditions. Over the past 18 years, Congress has required drug manufacturers to provide discounts to a variety of health care providers, and recently added children’s hospitals to that list. But this year Congress, in revising the drug discount program as part of the new health care law, blocked these hospitals from continuing to receive price

cuts on orphan drugs intended for treatment of diseases affecting fewer than 200,000 people. The discounts typically range from 30 percent to 50 percent, and children’s hospitals say the change is costing them hundreds of millions of dollars. In a typical letter to a children’s hospital, one company, Genentech, said that, because of the new law, it would not offer discounts on certain cancer medicines like Avastin, Herceptin, Rituxan and Tarceva, or on Activase, which is used to dissolve blood clots in heart attack and stroke patients. Joshua Greenberg, vice president of Children’s Hospital Boston, said that loss of the discounts “jeopardizes our ability to care for some of the sickest children with the most complex health care needs.”

Sponsors needed to help with the cost of surgery for sweet little Tallulah, who was abandoned at a dumpster. We thought she had a huge abscess on her side, but the vet said it was a hernia.
