Industry tries to adjust as new rules make food traceable Curious shoppers gain access to data on items’ path from grower to market By Lyndsey Layton

‘I Run for Eva’ Bend mom is making strides with her campaign to raise awareness of cerebral palsy

Going the

The Washington Post

In response to a new federal food safety law and growing consumer interest, vast amounts of new data are being generated about the complicated path that food takes from field to supermarket shelf. And, increasingly, some of that information is being offered to curious shoppers. In some stores, it’s even possible for consumers to wave a smart phone above an apple or an orange and learn instantly where it was grown, who grew it and whether it has been recalled. They can also contact the farmer, if they feel moved to do so. A provision of the federal food safety law passed last year requires that all players in the country’s food supply chain be able to quickly trace from whom they received a food product and to whom they sent it. They’ll have to maintain that information in digital form, creating deep wells of information that, in some cases, consumers could tap into through their computers or cell phones. See Food / A5

group on a collision course with St. Charles?

Independent physicians hope their organizational model will be an alternative to health system’s By Markian Hawryluk The Bulletin

Eager to maintain their financial and clinical autonomy, a group of independent physicians in Central Oregon has chosen to pursue a new organizational structure that could emerge as an alternative to the integrated delivery system envisioned by the St. Charles Health System. Physician members of the Central Oregon Independent Physicians Association, known as COIPA, are actively developing a model that would have doctors collectively set quality standards and then police each other’s adherence. The group could then negotiate contracts with insurance companies that would reward physicians for meeting quality targets and using resources efficiently, rather than for increasing the volume of services they provide as they do now. While both models aim to improve the quality of care for patients and lower health care costs, the hospital system and COIPA appear to be on a collision course that will likely force the region’s physicians to chose between the two. “In some ways, they are (mutually exclusive),” said John Ryan, COIPA’s executive director. “If St. Charles is going to negotiate contracts with insurers, the time will come where physicians will have to choose one or the other.”

Proven model The COIPA effort is based on the Mesa County IPA model developed by physicians in Grand Junction, Colo. That model has been hailed for providing high-quality care at some of the lowest costs in the nation. In 2007, the average spending per Medicare beneficiary in Grand Junction was $6,599, about 25 percent lower than the $8,682 national average, and about 10 percent lower than average spending in Bend.

Engineering harmony between people, wildlife In Colorado, bridge design could help avert car-wildlife collisions By Matthew L. Wald New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — At a picturesque spot in the mountains near the ski resorts of Vail and Breckenridge, Colo., two streams of traffic converge: people driving on Interstate 70, and animals

— black bears, cougars, elk and deer — headed north and south to feed and mate. When they collide, the animal is almost always killed and the vehicle badly damaged, even if the driver is lucky enough to escape injury. The obvious solution is a

bridge or a tunnel for the animals — but how do you build one they will use? On Sunday, a nonprofit group announced the winner of a competition to design such a crossing: Michael Van Valkenburgh & Associates, a landscape architecture firm

with offices in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Cambridge, Mass. The design team, associated with the national construction firm HNTB, submitted a proposal for a bridge made of lightweight precast concrete panels that are snapped into place and covered with foliage. See Bridge / A5

PORTLAND — The first episode of “Portlandia,” a new television show that pokes at this Northwestern city’s urban preciousness, includes a scene in which a couple at a restaurant interrogates a waitress about the quality of the life lived by a chicken they hope to order. The couple soon learns that the bird has been raised locally on organic sheep’s milk and that it has a name, Colin. “He looks like a happy little fellow,” says the character played by Fred Armisen, a “Saturday Night Live” star and a creator of “Portlandia,” when he is shown a photograph of a pre-plucked version of the bird. It is a funny moment, a send-up of this city’s obsession with provenance. Yet the fact that it is a spoof might not always be clear. See Portland / A4

Playing with the big kids One family’s podcast is challenging Hollywood’s heavy hitters on iTunes By Jeff Strickler (Minneapolis) Star Tribune

MINNEAPOLIS — A Plymouth, Minn., family with a recording studio in its basement is giving entertainment giants Nickelodeon, Universal Studios and Radio Disney serious competition for iTunes listeners. “Kid Friday,” a weekly podcast by Dave Swerdlick and his daughters, Hannah, 12, and Zoe, “almost 10,” consistently makes the top-10 list in iTunes’ Kids & Family section. “Because you are a kid in the digital world,” the show opens. Then the three of them spend 30 minutes talking tech. “Kids enjoy hearing about new stuff,” Swerdlick said. And they do so in droves. Since being launched a year ago, “Kid Friday” has been downloaded or streamed online by hundreds of thousands of kids worldwide. In addition to hearing regularly from listeners in the United States and Canada, the trio has had e-mails from listeners in Australia, the United Kingdom, South America, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand and Sweden, Swerdlick said.

‘A perfect fit’ He admits that “it’s a kick to look (at the iTunes rankings) and see your show sandwiched between Universal Studios and Nickelodeon. But, that being said, it really doesn’t matter to us. If we had 20 listeners, we’d be doing the show exactly the same way.” His goal was to find an activity he could share with his kids. Zoe is into jazz dance, which is not really a guy thing, and Hannah likes snowboarding, not really a grown-up thing. But in a younger incarnation, he was an on-air personality and programmer at a Colorado radio station, and the girls are fascinated by computers — a perfect fit. In 2007, the three of them launched “Webkinz Webcast,” which focused on the girls’ fascination with Webkinz, stuffed animals with an online compo-

nent that let “pet owners” interact with the toys electronically. The weekly podcasts lasted two years until the Webkinz fad faded. “We just weren’t that into them anymore,” Hannah said. But like other members of their generation, they were into cell phones, MP3 players, computers and electronic games. That’s when Swerdlick came up with the idea of changing the show to focus on, as their website trumpets: “Apps, websites, gadgets, games and fun!” As they settled into their basement studio on a recent Thursday evening, Hannah and Zoe didn’t know what they were going to talk about. Their dad always has list of potential topics, but he never reveals them in advance.

Talking tech “I like the spontaneity,” he explained. “They have no idea what we’re going to talk about, other than the fact that they know we’re going to talk tech and read e-mails.” They pick e-mails at random from their website’s inbox; even he doesn’t know what they say. Zoe is the more talkative of the pair, which she readily admits. She blurts out something, giggles and then confesses, “I have no idea why I just said that.” Han-

“on air” sign outside it, but no one can enter during taping because their standard poodle, Winston, plops down on the studio floor, blocking the entrance. A highlight for both youngsters is reading the e-mails, many of which direct them to gaming websites. During this show, a listener in England tipped them off to a British website with kidfriendly games. They clicked on the site and exploded with “oohs” and “aahs.” “I like learning about new stuff,” Zoe said after the show. “When we get done, I rush upstairs to get on the cool websites we just learned about.” The family doesn’t make any money from the podcasts. In fact, they pay a fee to send the show to a syndicate that handles its distribution. “Making money was never the point anyway,” Swerdlick said. “This is all about a family activity. And when they no longer are interested in doing it, we’ll stop.” The show’s popularity has not gone unnoticed, however. Businesses that cater to kids have offered products for them to give to listeners. On this show, it’s a computer clothes-designing game based on the TV series “Project Runway.” “I’ve never contacted anyone” to solicit giveaway items, Swerdlick said. “Still, we’ve gotten stuff from some big companies, including Mattel. When Mattel calls you up and says they’ve noticed you, well, that’s certainly something.”

Google plans daily-deal service akin to Groupon MarketWatch SAN FRANCISCO — Google Inc. has announced that it’s planning an Offers service that appears strikingly similar to the daily-deal model used by Groupon Inc., the closely held firm that recently ended merger talks with the Internet-search giant.

Google said in a statement that it is now “communicating with small businesses to enlist their support and participation in a test of a prepaid offers/vouchers program.” Google had previously disclosed details about its Offer Ads product, which enables compa-

nies to place coupon offers in their sponsored search links on In December, Google said athletic-apparel firm Adidas AG had enjoyed tangible benefits from the product, and added that it would extend Offer Ads from mobile phones to desktop computers.

CHICAGO — If you think Bluetooth is a rare dental condition and an app is what you eat before the entree, you might not be a candidate for today’s hightech, whiz-bang smart phones. Instead, you might be happier with a mobile phone geared toward seniors. Those phones typically don’t have Web-surfing capability, GPS maps and video games but instead have large buttons, oversized digital readouts and hearing-aid compatibility, along with a relatively simple calling plan.

Price skirmish leads to cheap phones, rates Though senior-friendly phones aren’t new, their lower prices and variety are. A recent price skirmish among wireless companies means seniors can get an easy-to-use cell phone and cheap service to go with it, said Mac Haddow, senior fellow on public policy for the independent and nonprofit Alliance for Generational Equity. Telecommunications analyst Roger Entner of Recon Analytics called senior citizens “the last untapped segment” of wireless customers. Though about 90 percent of Americans ages 18 to 49 own cell phones, only 57 percent of seniors 65 and older have them, according to the Pew Research Center. And fewer than one-fourth of wireless phones are purchased by adults 55 and older, according to the latest numbers by market research firm NPD Group. Heightened interest recently among wireless phone companies to sell to seniors has meant more offerings and lower prices, Entner said. Seniors can get a simple cell phone for about $15, with service as low as about $7 a month, according to an analysis by Alliance for Generational Equity’s Senior Advocate Health & Safety Project. The group said it conducted the analysis because price is often cited as a reason an estimated 13 million to 19 million U.S. seniors don’t own cell phones, said David Herman, spokesman for the Alliance for Generational Equity. “We’re in an environment where a lot of senior citizens are having to decide between rent and medicine or medicine and food, and dollars are critical,” Herman said. “The less expen-


Senior-friendly phones tend to have features such as large buttons and oversized digital readouts, along with relatively simple calling plans. sive we can make this, the more people we’re going to have that will use a service they desperately need.” Elizabeth Marshall, 82, of Cazanovia, N.Y., gushes about her new rose-colored Motorola phone. “It’s very attractive,” she said. She said she got the phone free from Consumer Cellular and pays $10 a month for phone service with no free minutes. She pays 25 cents per minute. “I’m on Social Security, and funds are tight,” Marshall said. “I didn’t want to go and get a highpriced thing.” Marshall, who has a slight hearing problem, said she likes that she can turn up the ring and the volume on the earpiece. “Seniors as a group have either embraced technology or are kind of scared of it,” Herman said. “Larger keyboard, the (oversized) readouts, compatibility with hearing aids — these are the critical factors. It’s not whether they can text their buddy on Facebook.”

‘Lifeline’ service As for calling plans, the group looked at only prepaid plans, which refers to a pay-as-you-go system. That’s opposed to being committed to a contract plan and their pricey bucket of calling minutes that many seniors might not use, Haddow said. “We just couldn’t find one that looked good,” he said of contract plans. An option for seniors on a very tight budget might be a free cell phone and “lifeline” service. Someone receiving financial aid from state or federal programs might qualify for a free cell phone and service instead of a free land line home phone.

Web-connected phones, other devices a source of worry for parents By Abby Sewell Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Every day, Teresa DiFalco’s children clamor for her iPhone. The kids, ages 9 and 11, use the smart phone and DiFalco’s iPod Touch to play such games as “Angry Birds” and “Zombie Farm.” Around the nation, other kids are doing the same, either on their own or on their parents’ mobile devices, such as smart phones, iPads and other tablets. But to the alarm of some parents, these mobile devices can do far more than enable their children to send text messages and play games. The gadgets are powerful little computers that can access the Internet in all its tastelessness. A few companies now are promoting products to block unwanted online content. “It’s not your grandfather’s Internet anymore,” said Stephen Balkam, chief executive of nonprofit advocacy organization Family Online Safety Institute. “We’re getting to a stage now where just about anything with a screen is connected to the Net, but we still have a generation of parents who were born in the analog age,” he said.

Since the rise of the personal computer, Internet users have been concerned about their children finding graphic images of sex and violence, and increasingly about their kids sending inappropriate content or bullying messages to one another online, Balkam said. But it took time for some parents to realize that mobile devices carry the same capabilities and risks. Apple Inc.’s mobile devices offer the option to disable the Safari Web browser, but some parents don’t want to cut off Internet access completely. Wireless carriers offer their own sets of parental controls for smart phones, including Internet filtering, but those controls work only when the devices are accessing the Internet via the carrier’s network rather than through a local wireless signal. So a growing number of applications — including Safe Eyes Mobile from, owned by McAfee Inc., and Safe Browser from Mobicip — are offering “kid-safe” filtered Internet browsers that can be set as an alternative to Safari on Apple devices.

T S Obama’s State of the Union finds a nation in transition By Nancy Benac The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Nearly two years ago on a cold February day, President Barack Obama stood for the first time before a joint session of Congress and spoke of a national day of reckoning. It was time not just to stabilize the shaken economy, he declared, but to reach for lasting prosperity. His goals were expansive: overhauling health care, cutting the deficit, improving schools, finding a way out of Iraq and a way ahead in Afghanistan. Most of all, creating jobs. Jobs by the millions. He had big plans and a Democratic majority in Congress to help him carry them out. “We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before,” Obama said to rousing applause. Grim as the economic news was at the time, the nation — and Obama — didn’t know how bad it was going to get before things started to turn around. The economy hemorrhaged nearly 4 million jobs in 2009, Obama’s first year as president. Two years into his term, as Obama prepares to stand before Congress once again on Tuesday, he will size up an altered State of the Union. The economy undisputedly is on stronger footing, though far from robust. There’s a new health care law. U.S. troops have come out of Iraq and gone into Afghanistan. Yet he will speak to a radically reshaped Congress. His party’s ranks have been thinned by voters who delivered a harsh verdict in November on two years of collaboration between Obama and the Democratic-controlled House and Senate. He faces Republicans who are sworn to slash spending by as much as $100 billion as the government comes off an economic rescue effort that has put the country on track for a third consecutive year of $1 trillion-plus deficits. Ask people whether Obama has delivered on his broad-brush promise of change, and 42 percent — the biggest share — say it’s still too soon to tell, according to an AP-GfK poll. One-third say he’s failed to deliver; one-quarter think he’s kept his promise. The public is divided, too, on whether Obama is attempting to change things at the right pace, according to the poll. About onethird think he’s moving too fast, and almost equal shares think his pace is just right or too slow.

Senate hits the snooze button In its first few weeks of official business this year, the House of Representatives voted to undo President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, pondered cuts to large swaths of the government and stood silently beneath flags flying at half-staff to honor a fallen congressional aide and his critically wounded boss. Over on the Senate side of Capitol Hill, an infant could have slept on the floor. The Senate has been largely silent, unless one counts news releases dispatched from a member’s home state praising this or denouncing that. The office of the majority leader, Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., issued a supremely succinct one, concerning the likelihood the Senate would take up the House bill to repeal the health care law: “Unlikely.” No one on the House side, where disdain for the meandering pace of the Senate has always crossed party boundaries, seems particularly surprised by the recent hiatus. — New York Times News Service

Afghanistan scrutinizing private security companies By Ray Rivera and Sharifullah Sahak New York Times News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Afghan government is putting new scrutiny on private security companies, raising concerns among Western officials that President Hamid Karzai may be accelerating efforts to push them out of the country. A special committee appointed by Karzai to investigate the companies has found that 18 have committed “major offenses,” although that number may have later been lowered, according to an Afghan official who has read the committee’s report. While the offenses cited were less than explosive — there were no charges, for instance, of murder or the inadvertent killing of innocents — some Western officials worry Karzai may use them to try to speed the departure of the companies

faster than his government is able to replace them with a promised Afghan force. Karzai issued a decree in August banning most private security companies in an effort to bring under government control the thousands of private guards who have often been accused of corruption, reckless use of force and in some cases acting as de facto militias. But NATO, foreign embassies and aid groups that depend on private companies to provide security protested the rule. In December, the government backed off, agreeing that private security companies would be gradually phased out. The accusations against the 18 companies include the illegal use of weapons, illegal hiring, vehicle offenses and tax evasion, according to the official. Seven other companies were also found to have links to high-ranking Afghan officials.

NATO: 2 Taliban leaders killed in east Afghanistan NATO says its air strikes have killed two key local Taliban leaders in eastern Afghanistan. The international military alliance says in a statement issued today that its forces killed the Taliban shadow administrator for Nangarhar province’s Hisarak district in a strike last Friday. NATO had previously announced the strike but said it was unsure if Maulawi Anwar had been killed. NATO also says that it killed a Taliban operative in Logar province’s Pul-e-Alam district in a strike on Sunday. The coalition says the man, Abdul Bari, helped Taliban leaders get weapons and vehicles. — The Associated Press

An Iraqi policeman passes by a destroyed car after a bombing in Baghdad on Sunday. A flurry of morning bombs killed at least six people and wounded dozens more across Baghdad in what one Iraqi official called an attempt to undermine security ahead of a much-anticipated meeting of Arab heads of state in two months. Shattering the relative calm that had prevailed in the capital for months, five car bombs exploded in different neighborhoods, and the military defused another three bombs. Other parts of the country have recently been hit by large-scale attacks, mainly against security forces and religious pilgrims, but until Sunday, Baghdad had been spared.


College student’s story may be a beacon for Giffords By James C. McKinley Jr. New York Times News Service

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Mark Steinhubl does not remember being shot. The bullet tore into his skull just above the right eye and cut through the right side of his brain. The slug obliterated some memories. He woke in a room full of white lights and bleeping machines, his head a mass of bandages. His parents were there. Doctors and nurses came and went through a swinging door, asking him to hold up fingers or follow a penlight with his eye. Few people understand what Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona faces as she begins her rehabilitation at the Memorial Hermann hospital complex in Houston, but Steinhubl, a 20year-old college student, is one of them. Two years ago, he suffered an ordeal similar to Giffords’ — a bullet damaging half the brain, the deadly buildup of spinal fluid, the removal of a piece of his skull by surgeons to relieve pressure. He also went through the same program at the Institute for Rehabilitation and Research that Giffords is expected to follow. Early on the morning of Jan. 4, 2009, on the last day of Christmas break, Steinhubl was

Mark Steinhubl, 20, a student at Texas A&M University, was shot in the head in 2009, in College Station, Texas. Steinhubl suffered a similar ordeal as Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and he also went through the same program at the Institute for Rehabilitation and Research that Giffords is expected to follow. shot in the head at a friend’s house. He declines to talk about the shooting, but court records show that the person who shot him was a fellow senior at his Houston high school. Steinhubl was taken by ambulance to Ben Taub General Hospital in Houston. He underwent four major operations. He lost his right eye and all hearing in his right ear. Four weeks later, paralyzed on his left side, he was wheeled

into the rehabilitation institute. Giffords, who remains in intensive care at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, is expected to be transferred to the institute as soon as her health improves. On Sunday, her doctors said she was likely to remain in intensive care until at least the end of the week because of a slight buildup of spinal fluid in her brain after she was flown to Houston from Tucson on Friday.


2 killed, 2 deputies wounded in Walmart shooting The Associated Press PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A shootout in front of a Walmart in Washington state left two people dead and two sheriff’s deputies wounded Sunday afternoon, a sheriff’s spokesman said. One of the dead was a man who shot at deputies, said Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office. The other victim was a young woman who died after she was taken to a Tacoma hospital, he said. Tacoma police said the deputies were both shot in the torso and were in satisfactory condition. They were being kept overnight at Tacoma General Hospital. Details were still sketchy Sunday night, but the sheriff’s office received a call about a suspicious person at the store in Port Orchard, Wilson said. The man ran and started shooting when three deputies tried to talk to him, he said. The deputies, including the two men who were wounded, returned fire, Wilson said. Destany Droge, 22, of Bremerton, and Emmili Jones, of Federal Way, 20, told The Seattle Times that they noticed two deputies confronting a heavyset man in the parking lot. The man, they said, took off running toward a wooded area. Then, in midsprint, he pulled out a gun and fired behind his back without turning. The officers were about 30 to 40 feet behind the suspect when he started firing, witness Ray Bourge told KOMOTV. “Five or six shots were fired. ... I just went and took cover,” he said. The man who ran from the deputies died of his wounds in the parking lot, Wilson said. Wilson said no other suspects were involved in the incident, which began at about 3:45 p.m.

Continued from A1 “This is Sir Francis Bacon,” said Jamie Dunn, the owner of the Gilt Club, the restaurant in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood where the scene was filmed in September. “The pork head mortadella came right out of this skull.” Dunn was holding the skull of a locally raised pig that had been slaughtered and dispersed into various dishes on that day’s menu. He said 80 percent of the restaurant’s food came from within 150 miles, and 99 percent came from within 300 miles. Some of the hard liquor is distilled blocks away. “We can ride our fixed-gear bikes to pick up a bottle,” he said. Then he added, “We do have a sense of humor here.” Portland will need one.

Continued from A1 Members of COIPA heard a presentation from Dr. Gregory Reicks, president of the Mesa County IPA, at their meeting in October, just as the hospital was announcing its plans for restructuring. After the meeting, COIPA sent a survey to its 600 members in Central Oregon and the Columbia Gorge asking about their support for a similar model. Some 86 percent of members who responded to the survey were in favor of pursuing that kind of structure. COIPA created a steering committee with broad representation from the region’s physicians and clinics. The committee plans to present its model to the COIPA board this summer, and if the board approves, to the full membership in September. That could allow them to begin negotiating with insurers using their new structure in time for 2012 contracts. The effort includes physicians from Bend Memorial Clinic, which separated from COIPA in 2010 to work on a medical home project with Clear One Health Plans. COIPA bylaws preclude member physicians from entering into their own contracts. But BMC officials believe the new structure will allow BMC physicians to participate fully in COIPA going forward. Dr. Steve Mann, a family practice physician with High Lakes Health Care and COIPA president, said the model has broad appeal for the region’s doctors because it’s a democratic model, rather than a topdown approach. “If I’m setting up quality standards for bargaining on contracts, it’s me talking to my fellow family practitioners and it’s fairly democratic,” he said. “I think there’s intrinsic support and community buy-in when you have providers having control over the process.”

Deliberately different For years, many residents here have reacted with practiced apathy and amusement toward the national fascination with Portland. Outsiders and media critics have glowed over everything from its restaurants to its ambitious transit system of streetcars and light rail. Yet with “Portlandia,” the flattery has given way to mockery, however gently executed, of this liberal city’s deliberate differentness. “When it makes fun of the aggressive bicyclists and things like that, well, that’s stuff I complain about, too,” said Amber Rowland, 27. “But then I’m part of what it’s making fun of as well. There’s a kernel of truth in it, and it’s OK to roll with it.” Rowland is a co-director of In Other Words, a nonprofit feminist book store and community center that is the setting for a scene in the first episode. Yet, while the humor of the scene is rooted in the rude righteousness of the store clerks, Rowland and her colleagues like to laugh, and they are in on the joke. Of course, they still measure the show by a Portland standard, its localness.

Painted text adorns the back wall of Dante’s, a store where part of “Portlandia,” the new IFC television show, was filmed. The show, which makes fun of the liberal city’s deliberate differentness, aims to poke its residents’ practiced apathy and amusement toward the national fascination with the city. Armisen is not from Portland, but his co-star Carrie Brownstein was a leader of a popular band that was based for a while in Portland, Sleater-Kinney. (Rowland enjoyed noting that it was a “seminal female rock band.”) “She’s going to be careful in the way she represents us because, inherently, she’s part of the community,” said Julie Park-Williams, a board member of In Other Words. “She comes from a place of trust.” In a popular line from the show, which is on IFC, Armisen’s character describes Portland as a place “where young people go to retire.” Sure enough, economists have shown that the city in recent years has drawn a disproportionate amount of young people, and that many of them end up being underemployed. “I love this show because this is how real born Portlanders look at all of you that moved here since 1998,” one person wrote in a comments forum on The Oregonian website. The show has limits as social science. While many parts of Portland feel like one big group hug, the city is a complicated place, struggling with government budget cuts, manufacturing losses and the housing downturn, even as demand for office space downtown has risen. The Gilt Club restaurant is just a few blocks from a

Salvation Army shelter. In November, the city was shaken when a teenager born in Somalia and raised in Portland was charged with trying to detonate a bomb at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. On the day “Portlandia” made its debut, lawyers were in federal court here arguing that a controversial local Muslim cleric, among others, had been unjustly placed on a federal no-fly list. “Portlandia,” some say, is hardly Portland. “I think it’s just too narrow of a population that they’re making fun of,” said Allison Jones, 23, who takes photographs of food for Eater PDX, a Portland restaurant blog. “And I think I can say that because I’m part of that subset.”

A packed house Yet people are clearly interested. Late Friday night, a long line wrapped around the Mission Theater. People waiting hoped a space would open up inside, where the first episode of “Portlandia” was about to be shown to a packed house. Some people said they did not own televisions — or that they did not get IFC. “It’s got to be a little elitist, you know,” said Tony Robinson, working as the doorman. “That’s part of the Portland thing, too.”

Wooing doctors

Gunman killed after shooting 4 officers inside Detroit precinct The Associated Press DETROIT — A gunman opened fire inside a Detroit police precinct Sunday, wounding four officers before he was shot and killed by

police, authorities said. The man walked into the precinct shortly after 4 p.m. and opened fire indiscriminately, police said. “Utter chaos and pandemonium took

place,” said Police Chief Ralph Godbee. He said the gunman has been identified, but it was “too early to characterize” him while the investigation was ongoing.

Enthusiasm for the new model, however, could mean that the region’s physicians are less than impressed with the hospital’s efforts. Hospital leaders have been trying to win over local physicians, and to convince them the new integrated deliv-

ery system won’t be a hospitalcontrolled system, but one run by physicians themselves. They have committed to hiring doctors to run 10 centers of care in the new system, each focusing on a particular segment, such as primary care, cancer care or mental health care. Those centers would include teams of providers caring for patients, including both physicians employed by the hospital and independent physicians who agree to affiliate as part of the system. All of the clinical operations of the system would be overseen by the chief clinical officer, also a physician. St. Charles CEO Jim Diegel said the hospital system is close to naming the chief clinical officer as well as two of the care center leaders and the physician executive of the St. Charles Medical Group, the group of physicians that opt to align with the hospital system. “We’re not distracted by what a Bend Memorial Clinic model or (a COIPA) model is,” Diegel said. “We believe that our model is the best model going forward. We’re not going to be pulled into a public debate about who has the better model. We know what we’re doing, and we’re working on executing it.”

Better care, low costs While the hospital can rely on a core group of specialists under employment contracts or joint venture affiliations, it lacks the primary care capacity needed to fully integrate care. It has acquired a primary care group in Redmond — now renamed St. Charles Family Care — and has garnered interest from physician groups in Bend. For patients, if either system is successful, it could mean better quality care and lower costs. Both systems would incentivize primary care physicians and their staff to be more proactive about managing patients’ health, preventing emergency room visits or hospitalizations through better preventive care, and increasing access to health care services. Both systems envision greater communication between specialists and primary care physicians, and greater sharing of electronic health records. Many of the physicians involved in developing the new COIPA model, including Mann,

had previously signed on to the hospital’s reform effort that asked physicians to sign a code of conduct and a pledge to work with the hospital toward a new system. But many became disillusioned with the structure the hospital proposed and the possibility the hospital would hire its own physicians to build out a full network of providers.

No-win situation? Many providers feel the hospital has offered them a no-win situation. They can choose to align with the hospital and cede autonomy over their practice, or they can watch the hospital bring in doctors from outside the area to compete with them. “They chose a different path to control and own the whole thing, and it’s a bit of a malicious process for providers because it’s forcing them into an eitheror position,” Mann said. “You have a hospital that’s a true monopoly in the region. I think they could have gotten a lot further with honey than with vinegar.” Employment of physicians by the hospital, and particularly physicians from outside the community, has been a flash point for the medical community. But according to Dr. Michel Boileau, a Bend urologist who is spearheading the hospital’s restructuring effort, the hospital system would prefer to work with the physicians already in Central Oregon rather than bring in new providers. “It would be possible to employ a physician in any specialty that the system wanted to. We receive phone calls daily from people interested in that from outside the area,” he said. “That’s nobody’s aim. If possible, we would like to avoid that.” Boileau said a key part of the hospital’s restructuring effort will be to change the dynamics of the relationship between the hospital and the community’s physicians, “so that physicians look at St. Charles Health System as us, not them, and that it’s such a fine system and each one of them is such an integral part of making it that way,” he said. “So that it becomes their health system and not something that they see as a threat or the enemy or the competition.” Markian Hawryluk can be reached at 541-617-7814 or at

THE BULLETIN • Monday, January 24, 2011 A5



Continued from A1 “Humanity needs stories like this,” she said. “So I finally acquiesced. If I can help people believe more in children like Eva ... then hallelujah. I’ll do it.”

Continued from A1 The “one step forward, one step back” traceability requirement — for processed food and produce — is designed to make it easier for the Food and Drug Administration to identify the source of an outbreak of foodborne illness, trace its path and swiftly remove it from the food supply. The new requirement represents a major adjustment for some parts of the nation’s food system, as the government imposes standards and electronic record-keeping on an industry where small players still rely on handshakes and paper invoices. The FDA has had trouble pinpointing the source of national outbreaks of food-borne illness, a task complicated by a lengthy food supply chain where tomatoes might change hands five times from farm to store. Many in the food business already are using traceability technology, mostly relying on bar codes that can be affixed after harvesting to a piece of fruit or a crate.

The diagnosis The Ferrells knew early on that something wasn’t right with Eva. A few hours after her birth, she began having seizures. Around six months, she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. “She was not meeting milestones,” Sean Ferrell said. At the time, the family lived in New Mexico, 45 minutes from a hospital. To deal with Eva’s seizures, the Ferrells were given steroids to inject into their baby. In 2007, the Ferrells relocated to Bend, having searched for a place where Sean could continue to work for the U.S. Forest Service, with good schools and decent medical facilities. They found Bend. “We got very lucky, we were fortunate to move to Bend,” Sean said. “Oregon is tax-poor, but it’s passion-rich.” Here, the Ferrells got wind of Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center, where Eva now rides horses for therapy every week. But not everything Eva needs to achieve her full potential is here in Bend. The family tries to travel once each year to St. Louis to manage Eva’s treatment at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Cerebral Palsy Center. The program is specifically for children with the range of problems associated with cerebral palsy, and the Ferrells are pretty partial to the program. It was the St. Louis center that discovered Eva’s cerebral palsy was brought on by a genetic mitochondrial disease. She now takes medication to keep that disease in check. “That’s now part of her medical plan, to take care of the disease,” Sean said. “Otherwise she could be on a quick trajectory of organ failure.” Eva’s doctor at the center has cerebral palsy herself, giving her a different perspective of just how much a child like Eva might be able to accomplish given the right therapy and tools. Other doctors had care plans for Eva, but they were to manage her pain and handle some of her physical disabilities. The Ferrells decided, if it was possible, they’d help their daughter at the next level, to give her every resource they could to help her do what she wants to do. “She’s trapped in her body,” Sean said. “It’s hard to reach out and touch a communication device.” Eva doesn’t have much control over her tongue, so she doesn’t yet communicate verbally with much success. When she’s happy, though, the belly laughs are a very clear indicator. Her babbling attempts at language the family refers to as “Evanese.” Every cerebral palsy story is slightly different; Sean likened children with cerebral palsy to snowflakes. Caused by a brain injury, how extensive the cerebral palsy is depends on how long the brain is without oxygen. For Eva, the condition affects all quadrants of her body, leaving her in a wheelchair, challenged to move her arms and legs. The condition also causes the 6-year-old to have infrequent status epilepticus seizures, which are unlike obvious, grand mal seizures. Instead, they’re persistent seizures that will keep going indefinitely until the body shuts down. Eva’s had three such seizures since birth. “They’re very subtle, they come on slowly over the course of about 45 minutes,” Anne Ferrell said. “They’re scary because they sort of creep up. Eva could have a great day at school and go to swimming. ... Then she gets lethargic and starts twitching, until her lips turn blue.” But although Eva’s physically disabled, her brain is very much intact. She picked out her bedspread, she chooses what clothes she will wear to school each day with head movements. She finger-paints for hours and loves to read. The Ferrells try very hard to provide independent moments for her, and they’ve had to learn patience to allow Eva to share her opinion. “The challenge is to create workstations in the classroom and outside that are flexible of time,” Sean said. Eva’s power wheelchair has a head array that allows her to steer it through school — supervised, of course. That, Sean said, was Eva’s first moment of independence. Her face said it all.

Sage Ferrell, 4, hitches a ride on her sister Eva’s wheelchair on Wednesday night at their home in Bend. The girls’ parents say Eva is Sage’s greatest friend, and can get her sister laughing at a moment’s notice.

“As it started with the mileage building, it became a family affair. Sean would be in the car with the two kids in their pajamas bringing me water, and Sage would wave and Eva would be smiling. I started to look forward to mile 16, to them showing up.” — Anne Ferrell, on her family’s support for her running “She just had this look like, ‘Oh my God, this is awesome!’” he said.

‘This magic moment’ Anne Ferrell had a similar moment. In 2009, she took up running, partly as alone time away from the kids. She signed up to train with Fleet Feet Sports for the Pacific Crest Half Marathon in Sunriver. “I felt an immediate connection,” she said. “I just didn’t stop.” Last June, Anne ran the Pacific Crest race again; then she ran the Smith Rock Sunrise Classic and Haulin’ Aspen Trail halfs as well, and finished out the season with the Dirty Second Half. “By September, the folks at Fleet Feet looked at me and said, ‘Why don’t you do a marathon?’” she said. “It was this magic moment. It was like, ‘You’re right. I should.” Anne settled on the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon in Phoenix, where her brother lives. Sundays became about Anne’s long runs along the roads of Bend. “As it started with the mileage building, it became a family affair,” she said. “Sean would be in the car with the two kids in their pajamas bringing me water, and Sage would wave and Eva would be smiling. I started to look forward to mile 16, to them showing up.” The epiphany of what running meant to her — and to Eva — didn’t hit Anne until about a month ago. She and her husband went to see “Conviction,” a movie based on a true story about a woman who, faced with her brother’s wrongful murder conviction, goes back to school for 14 years in order to get a law degree and prove his innocence. She succeeded. “I just suddenly realized, anything is possible,” Anne said. “It was really symbolic for me.” She wanted to believe anything was possible for Eva, too, and she didn’t want people putting up barriers that prevented her from achieving the maximum possible in her life. “We have ideas for Eva and Sage of their optimal lives, but there are all these barriers (for Eva) where people say, ‘No, no, no,’” Sean said. “The education system, the health insurance system, the medical system, every step we’re being told ‘no.’ She’s being told ‘no.’” Doctors have, in the past, pushed to have Eva fitted for a feeding tube. The Ferrells resisted, and she now eats and drinks and is learning to use a straw. The first time the Ferrells visited the center in St. Louis, Eva was 18 months old. Her doctor spent about 45 minutes with her, then told the Ferrells: “Eva is going to college if she wants to.” In that moment, the family realized Eva could do it; they began to expect more from Eva and raised their expectations of what she could and should do with her life. The Ferrells each have different dreams for their daughter. “I hope she gets to choose who she gets to be without barriers,” Sean said. Anne’s view is more simple. “I hope she has real friends,” she said.

To help Eva get there, Anne will keep running marathons. She’ll keep running marathons to help other kids like Eva, too. The ultimate goal, the Ferrells say, is not to stop when Eva stops needing help. They want to push this forward, help other children with similar disabilities reach their full potential. “It’s more than just about Eva,” Anne said. “And I hate to speak for her, but I’d like to think that’s what Eva would like to see, too.” Sean made a video about Anne’s plan to run the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon in honor of Eva. He sent out e-mails to friends to spread the word, who in turn have sent it along to other people in the community. So far, Anne’s run has raised more than $9,000 for Eva’s care and a service dog. It’s not a nonprofit; because they’re raising money for just one child, the money goes into a trust account for Eva’s care. “We’re trying to dilute it,” Anne said. “We want to spread the message about Eva and kids like her, and the possibilities they have. We hope the message gets bigger.”

Hard to ask for help It seems to be working. An elementary school friend of Sean’s sent the Ferrells a donation while her family was facing the certain death of their own child from spina bifida. Several Central Oregonians have said they’d like to run races for Eva. Last summer, Eva had hip surgery; Sean needed to take time off but couldn’t afford to take unpaid leave. Forest Service employees donated more than 1,000 hours of their own personal leave to him, allowing him to take six weeks off and save more time to take Eva to doctor’s appointments. But it’s not easy asking for help. “There’s nothing more uncomfortable than reaching out to friends and families to help out,” Sean Ferrell said. “No kid should have a fundraiser.” The Ferrells have good health insurance through the Forest Service, which covers 75 therapy sessions for Eva each year. She’s in a medically involved program, which has a Medicaid waiver that covers co-pays for the therapy sessions covered by insurance. “I do have good, solid employment, I make over $50,000, I have good health insurance,” Sean said. “I feel for families who are unemployed or have no coverage.” But with her severe condition,

Eva could benefit from as many as 200 therapy sessions each year. There are several types of physical therapy, horse therapy at Healing Reins, water therapy, speech therapy. The list goes on; some forms of therapy the Ferrells don’t even try to get insurance to cover anymore because they’re considered alternative medicine and won’t be covered. The sessions can add up to four times each week, but once Eva’s attended 75 therapy sessions the family has to cut back because insurance no longer pays for it. The family has also been saving up to buy Eva a service dog from a New Mexico nonprofit, which will cost $5,000 plus their travel to and from the training facility. The dog can alert the family to seizures, although its primary job will be to engage Eva and keep her physically active. When the family went to Assistance Dogs of The West in New Mexico to find a dog for Eva, they put her on the ground and had a series of dogs come into the room to interact with her. Some sniffed her and moved along. One dog, a Labradoodle named Gertie, recognized Eva’s discomfort on the floor. A trainer told Gertie to “squish,” and Gertie straddled Eva and sat softly on her, wiggling back and forth. The result? Eva went from squealing in frustration to howling with laughter. “The dog will motivate her and help with calming her,” Anne Ferrell said. “What a wonderful gift of independence.” The Ferrells also hope Gertie will improve Eva’s communication skills, with Eva learning commands to communicate with the dog. And the parents have another reason they believe Eva would benefit from the dog. “Kids in Eva’s class like her. But as she gets older there are going to be some hard times,” Anne Ferrell said. “They’re not always going to be nice. And a dog is a conduit, it helps kids not be intimidated by you. A dog makes you cool.” So the Ferrells will continue to spread the word about running for Eva. And someday they hope the message will become so powerful that many other children can receive help as well. “Part of the reason for this fundraiser is not to have to make these choices,” Sean Ferrell said. “It’s to give her what she needs to be successful in life. This is a critical time in her life.” That’s why, even though it pains them to do it, they’ve learned to ask for help. Anne doesn’t hide anymore, and the Ferrells certainly don’t ever want Eva to hide. “She’s stronger than any of us,” Sean Ferrell said. “She rallies, every time.” Sheila G.

Emerging market But the new law has triggered a small gold rush for technology companies angling for a piece of an emerging market, which covers food other than meat, poultry and egg products. They are competing to develop the tracking technology and manage the data. Some are experimenting with radio frequency identification and other sophisticated methods, including etching identification codes on produce with lasers or micro-percussion markers that make tiny indents. “They each believe they have the holy grail product tracking solutions sitting in their laptop,” said David Acheson, former assistant commissioner for food protection at the FDA. “Somebody is probably going to make a bundle of money out of this.” Under the new law, the FDA must launch pilot projects by September, then report results

Bridge Continued from A1 The bridge is broad enough to allow for strips — lanes, actually — that resemble forests, shrubs and meadows, with the aim of satisfying the tastes of any of the animals in the area. Miles of fences on either side of the highway would funnel animals to the bridge. The state has not committed to build such a structure at that spot. The percentage of crashes caused by animals is far higher in other areas, said Stacey Stegman, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Transportation. But state officials are eager to learn what they can from the contest entries as they address the problem of animal-vehicle collisions. Finalists in the competition, which concluded Sunday at the annual meeting of the Transportation Research Board in Washington, took a wide variety of approaches. One environmentally minded entry, from Balmori Associates of New York, called for building a crossing out of wood from trees killed by beetles. That would pre-

to Congress and issue more specific rules by 2013. Exactly what systems will ultimately look like, how they will work and how much they will cost is unclear. Segments of the food industry have been required since 2005 to be able to trace “one step forward, one step back,” but not farms or restaurants. But according to a 2009 investigation by the Department of Health and Human Services’s inspector general, most food facilities surveyed did not meet those requirements and 25 percent didn’t even know about the law.

Salmonella outbreak The need for better traceability became clear after a national outbreak of salmonella illness in spring 2008 that sickened more than 1,300 people across the country. Initially, investigators at the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified tomatoes as the culprit, and warned the public against consuming them. But more than a month later, FDA investigators correctly identified the source of the outbreak as peppers from Mexico. The delay was partly because of the chaotic recordkeeping of the growers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers, Acheson said. In the meantime, the cost to tomato growers in Florida alone was estimated at about $100 million. In some cases, companies are going beyond the federal requirement and making a portion of the traceability information available to consumers, who are increasingly interested in the way food is produced. HarvestMark, based in California, has developed a two-dimensional bar code sticker that can be placed on individual fruits and vegetables or packaging. Shoppers can scan the sticker with a smart phone or go to the HarvestMark website and enter the number from the sticker to learn the path the food has taken and other information the farmer chooses to share, such as the harvest date.

vent the timber from rotting and giving off carbon dioxide, which contributes to global warming, and would avoid using concrete, which releases carbon dioxide when it is made, the designers said. Experts involved in setting up the design competition say the deadly collisions around Vail sometimes involve the Canada lynx, which is listed as a threatened species, one step short of endangered. More broadly, the highway forms a threatening barrier between nature preserves on either side, increasing the likelihood that the populations will become genetically isolated. “As you fragment the habitat, the long-term prognosis for wildlife is bad,” said Rob Ament, the project manager for the group sponsoring the competition, which bestows a $40,000 award and was initiated by the Western Transportation Institute at Montana State University and the Woodcock Foundation in New York.

Palestinians accused in attack on church that killed 21 By Michael Slackman New York Times News Service

CAIRO — Egypt’s interior minister charged Sunday that a Palestinian extremist group with links to al-Qaida was behind the Dec. 31 bombing outside a church in Alexandria that killed 21 people and set off days of sectarian rioting around the nation. In a nationally televised speech, the minister, Habib el-Adly, said the authorities had “conclusive evidence” linking the attack on Egyptian Christians to the Army of Islam, a militant group based in the Gaza Strip. El-Adly said that investigators had arrested several Egyptian men connected to the attack and that they had provided details about how they were recruited by the Gaza group. “These despicable terrorist acts will not get the better of the will of the nation and the nobility of Egypt, where the principles of moderation and the values of tolerance and acceptance of others and renouncing violence and terrorism has taken root in the consciousness of its people through the centuries,” el-Adly said in a speech that marked Police Day, which will be observed Tuesday. Late Sunday, the Interior Ministry identified one of those arrested as Ahmed Lotfy Ibrahim, 26, of Alexandria. A ministry statement said he had visited Gaza in 2008, where he met members of the extremist group who influenced him to attack churches in Egypt. The authorities said Ibrahim maintained contact with the group until the time of the attack. A spokesman for the group interviewed by phone denied any involvement in the attack.

The Mavi Marmara, lead ship in a flotilla headed to the Gaza Strip that was stormed by Israeli naval commandos, sails into the port of Ashdod, Israel, on May 31, 2010. An Israeli inquiry commission defended the actions of the country’s troops during the deadly raid on the protest flotilla, finding in a report released Sunday that Israel had not violated international law.

Deadly raid on flotilla didn’t violate law, Israeli panel says By Edmund Sanders Los Angeles Times

JERUSALEM — A commission appointed by Israel’s government concluded Sunday that the country’s military did not violate international law in carrying out a deadly commando raid last spring against a protest ship that was attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip in defiance of Israel’s naval blockade. The panel blamed activists onboard the ship for instigating the violence, which ended in the shooting deaths of nine Turkish passengers, including one with dual U.S. citizenship. Critics dismissed the panel’s findings, saying its members were incapable of conducting an objective probe. “It’s a whitewash, just as we expected,” said Audrey Bomse, attorney for the Free Gaza

Movement, one of the organizers of the May 2010 flotilla. “You don’t ask a criminal to investigate his own criminality.” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the committee’s 280-page report proved Israel’s response was justified. “Soldiers were defending our country and defending themselves,” he said. The commission was formed in June amid international criticism that Israel’s military used excessive force during the early-morning raid of the Mavi Marmara as it sailed with other protest boats in international waters off Israel’s coast. Among other things, the commission found that Israel Defense Forces were justified in using firearms against a group of activists that had overwhelmed the commandos with iron bars, slingshots and knives.

Documents reveal major Palestinian concessions in talks Palestinian leaders made significant concessions to win Israeli cooperation toward a comprehensive peace process, but the offers were not enough to lure Israel to negotiations, according to secret Palestinian documents made public Sunday by the Arabic satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera. The documents describe Palestinian negotiators as offering concessions on two contentious issues — Jerusalem and the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes in what is now Israel. — McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Tunisia shuts down popular TV channel

Somalia may cut ties to mercenaries

TUNIS, Tunisia — Tunisia’s interim government abruptly shut down the country’s oldest and most popular private television network Sunday evening, in an apparent violation of its pledges to respect freedom of expression after the ouster of the authoritarian president Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali. The state news agency said the government had arrested the network’s owner and stopped its broadcast for “grand treason.” But Lotfi Sallemi, a spokesman for the network, Hannibal TV, said the government shut down its signal without warning or explanation.

MOGADISHU, Somalia — The minister of information for the transitional government in Mogadishu said Sunday that Somalia was likely to end its relationship with Saracen International, a private security company in which South African mercenaries and the founder of Blackwater Worldwide are said to be involved. Saracen has offered to train government troops and battle pirates and Islamist insurgents in Somalia. “We don’t want to have anything to do with Blackwater,” said the minister of information, Abdulkareem Jama, mentioning accusations that Blackwater employees had killed civilians in Iraq. “We need help, but we don’t want mercenaries.”

Green Party quits Irish coalition LONDON — Ireland’s political turmoil deepened Sunday when the Green Party abandoned the governing coalition with the Fianna Fail party of Prime Minister Brian Cowen, raising fresh doubts about Cowen’s ability to cling to office beyond the next few days and prompting new questions about Ireland’s commitments under the $114 billion bailout plan for its economy. The Greens’ defection came less than 24 hours after Cowen agreed to step down as the Fianna Fail leader but vowed to stay on as prime minister until after an election. The Greens’ leader, John Gormley, said Cowen’s moves to keep himself in office had ruptured the “trust” on which the coalition rested. “Our patience has reached an end,” Gormley said.

In its 2nd year, event raises funds for education foundation By Patrick Cliff • The Bulletin ePople packed the gym at the Athletic Club

Pine Schools. Some people, after paying $10 for all-you-

of Bend on Sunday to taste 20 different ver-

can-eat chili, were satisfied to taste just a few of the of-

sions of chili, all made by local chefs to ben-

ferings. Not so for Bend residents Jace Johnson, 25, and

efit The Education Foundation for Bend-La

Ben King, 23.

The two eaters planned to try every chili on offer, and both men were confident as they took a quick breather between samples. “I’m going to conquer it,” said Johnson, as his friend nodded in support. “I’m feeling better than ever.” Both men had already tried a wide selection of chili, with meats ranging from steelhead to pulled pork. The event was the second annual Chili Cook Off and Rail Jam fundraiser designed to provide activity scholarships for Bend-La Pine students. Most of the recipes used were unique to the event, according to Cheri Helt, who was recently named as an interim member of the Bend-La Pine School Board. Helt is also a board member of the foundation and, with her husband, owns Zydeco Kitchen + Cocktails, which offered a chili at the event. Helt helped create the event last year and said it came in response to the economic downturn. “We never want kids to suffer for the economy,” she said.

Several restaurants donated the food and the time of their staff, and the club offered the gym for free for the fundraiser, Helt said. Joolz, a downtown Bend restaurant, won the event last year for an elk chili. But the restaurant’s staff didn’t rest on that victory, changing its recipe this year and substituting beef for the elk, according to co-owner Julie Hamdan. Creating a chili for the event was a chance to let the restaurant staff have fun and help fund the scholarships, Hamdan said. “We have all these young chefs, and we just let it play out,” she said.

Though the gym was crowded, the rail jam portion was struggling to get going. That had a lot to do with daytime temperatures reaching the mid-50s, according to Jeremy Nelson, of Skjersaa’s Ski & Snowboard, who was helping build the snow features. Despite the difficulties, organizers expected the rail jam to happen. The snow, which had to be trucked in from Mt. Bachelor ski area, was delivered to the club Saturday. The snow froze overnight, becoming sloppy ice by Sunday afternoon, Nelson said. That left a crew of four men smashing the ice with shovels in an attempt to smooth the run. “It was like a little glacier,” Nelson said of the ramp, which was set up in the club’s courtyard. Optimism was not lost, though. At one point, to keep the snow crew inspired, someone began playing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” over the outdoor speakers.

Two snowmobilers from Washington state were lost for several hours Saturday in the Kapka Butte area after their snowmobile broke down, according to a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office news release. Once the snowmobile failed, Alex Serbranskaya, a 19-year-old from Vancouver, Wash., and 21-year-old Kristina Dobrukhin, of Ridgefield, Wash., began walking in a direction they believed would lead to the

Wanoga Sno-park, where their families were waiting. At about 5 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office and Deschutes County Search and Rescue responded to the area after receiving a report of the two missing snowmobilers, the release said. More than a dozen searchers set out in the area to find the Washington residents. By leaving their snowmobile, the two women likely made the search last longer. Searchers began look-

Required information

Average high temperatures for this time of year in Central Oregon are in the mid-40s, but Monday and Tuesday should each have highs in the low to mid-50s. Those temperatures continue a run of warm days that began over the weekend, when daytime highs also reached the 50s. The relatively high temperatures have been the cause of air moving from the southwest instead of the north, which is usual this time of year, according to Rob Brooks, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Pendleton. The run of unseasonably warm weather is expected to end by midweek, Brooks said. Even then, temperatures should still hit seasonal averages. With no precipitation in the forecast, the skies are expected to be mostly clear, Brooks said. The overnight temperatures, though, are expected to fall into the 20s, Brooks said. That’s in part because there will be few clouds in the sky to hold in the heat, according to Brooks. “You pay for it at night, what you get during the day,” Brooks said. Beginning Wednesday, the high temperatures should return to normal. Daytime highs are forecast to peak in the mid-40s from Wednesday through the weekend. At night, temperatures will likely fall to the mid-20s.

SALEM — A new federal law intended to crack down on Wall Street could have ripple effects in Salem, where David Glennie says people like him may stop volunteering for obscure government financial advisory committees. “I’d quit,” he said, calling a new federal regulation “none of their business.” Based on the wide-ranging financial reform law passed by Congress last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission has proposed new restrictions for members of advisory boards on entities that issue or receive municipal bonds. The rule would establish new legal and paperwork obligations for members of such boards, making them file with the SEC as “registered municipal advisors.” Since Jan. 1, the SEC has received a stream of comments from places like Missouri, Texas, Vermont and Oklahoma, predicting that the new requirement will make it nearly impossible for states to get input from unpaid citizen volunteers. State Treasurer Ted Wheeler joined the chorus, sending the SEC a letter saying the law would, by discouraging unpaid volunteerism on advisory boards, lead to less accountability and transparency, not more. He asked for an exemption for unpaid advisory board members, calling the registration requirement “onerous.”

NORAD station keeping an eye on the sky Technicians track all air traffic west of the Mississippi By Erik Lacitis The Seattle Times

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. — Inside a windowless, three-story building with thick concrete walls, past a heavy metal door with a sign that says, “WARNING. Restricted Area ... Use of deadly force authorized,” on this recent afternoon you can find Airman 1st Class Juliana D’Aprile, who is all of 20 years old. Sitting in front of a bank of flat-screen monitors at the control center of the Western Air Defense Sector that combine information from 172 radar sites, she literally would be the first to spot a hijacked or terrorist plane. The sector doesn’t make the news unless it’s a story about a sonic boom created by a jet scrambled to intercept a potential threat. “Our measure of success is that nothing happens,” said Col. Paul Gruver, commander of the sector. Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, no terrorist planes have done anything in the United States, perhaps because they, too, are aware of how they could be tracked since the radar system was dramatically changed after the tragedy. In this world, D’Aprile, a 2008 Spanaway High School graduate, spends her days looking at screens full of moving dashes and dots and streaks in bright white, green, purple, red. She is quite at ease with the blips. Why not? She does not know a world in which Microsoft did not exist. She was 8 when Google was founded. In kindergarten, she was playing with computer games, she says. Given how much she has to

focus on, she sits in front of the monitors for an hour, then does other work, then returns for another hour, a typical shift to keep them sharp for those doing this kind of work at the sector.

‘Always exciting’ “It’s always exciting,” D’Aprile said as she zoomed in on a plane about to cross into the United States through Texas. “I want to know if this is a friend. I want to know who this guy is.” D’Aprile is a tracking technician with Washington state’s Air National Guard. If she seemed a tad bit nervous, it was because Gruver was a few feet away as she was being interviewed for this story. But Gruver, 53, was quite proud of the young woman and the technicians around her, a good many in their 20s and 30s. Gruver’s background includes flying jets in the Middle East, and, he says, in some ways, tracking planes over there is considerably simpler. “We own the air space over there,” he said. “Here, we might have 15,000 planes flying at the height of the day.” The Western Air Defense Sector covers three-quarters of the country — everything west of the Mississippi River. That’s 3,300 miles of border. The sector has 230 military members. At any one time, a little more than two dozen technicians

Maj. Erin Goebel, mission crew commander at NORAD’s Western Air Defense Sector, monitors the “air picture” in the operations control center at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state on Dec. 2, 2010. The base’s command center is responsible for monitoring the western United States for potential threats from aircraft. and officers are in that control room. D’Aprile is among the first line of technicians who assess the radar blips. Behind her is an array of other technicians and officers, eventually leading to a weapons section for scrambling jets. It used to be, back in the Cold War days, that we worried about Russian bombers and nuclear missiles coming across the Arctic. That’s why the United States and Canada created NORAD, which stands for the North American Aerospace Defense Command. Canadian military personnel also work at the Lewis-McChord air-defense control room. The system was depicted in movies such as 1964’s “Dr. Strangelove” and 1983’s “WarGames,” with a young Matthew Brod-

erick hacking into NORAD computers. But those days are gone. NORAD this year even conducted a joint exercise with the Russian Federation Air Force in responding to a simulated hijacking of a plane en route to the Far East.

Sept. 11 When Sept. 11 happened, the agency made drastic changes to its radar tracking. A slide it shows graphically depicts its radar coverage before that day: It was all at our borders, using military radar; the inside of the country was pretty much void. Its computers now combine Federal Aviation Administra-

tion radar, and the country is blanketed. Still, real-life computer stuff is never quite like depicted in movies. Just like people, Radar A might be better at its task than Radar B, and so the technicians have to decide which one is giving correct information. Or that might not be a plane the radar is detecting, but a flock of geese, or a thunderstorm.

And so the sector relies on the technicians to make the correct call. “That’s part of the art and science,” Gruver said. To keep its edge, he says, the sector regularly runs various exercises. These range from scrambling jets in a make-believe terrorist scenario to having technicians track planes while simultaneously dealing with computer failures and even a co-worker having a heart attack. At some point, in a decision that has to be made in minutes, if not seconds, fighter jets will be have to be scrambled. At the Western Air Defense Sector, that happened 179 times in 2009. One such scramble took place on Aug. 17, when a pair of F-15 jets caused two loud sonic booms over the Seattle area. The military jets were pursuing a seaplane that breached a 10-mile restricted zone when President Barack Obama visited the city. The plane landed in Lake Washington, and photos show a chagrined-looking pilot at the dock after talking to Secret Service agents. The plane had been flying from Lake Chelan to Seattle, and the pilot apparently hadn’t checked air-restriction notices. At the control center, D’Aprile continues looking at the blips on her monitor, making decisions about whether that digital signal is a friend or a potential foe. “It’s hard to explain what you do to friends and family,” D’Aprile said. “But what you’re doing is protecting the U.S.”

SEC Continued from B1 The committee advises the state on whether it should issue tax-exempt bonds to private entities for things like affordable housing or local public-private partnerships. Glennie, a former Salem city councilor and board member of the local YMCA, has served on the state committee for five years, and said the paperwork and disclosure requirements already have gone up in that time.

He’s not interested in any more of it, saying such requirements “assume you are out to enrich yourself by volunteering ... it’s insulting to my integrity.” Art Hill, of Pendleton, a vice president for economic development at Blue Mountain Community College, is more understanding of the law. He was recently named to the Oregon Growth Account Board to give input from east of the Cascades on how the state invests money. Given the many Wall Street scandals of late, Hill is sym-

pathetic to the goal of increasing oversight of the financial industry. But he agrees with Wheeler that the law seems to have an unfortunate unintended consequence. “I would love to see where an abuse on this kind of volunteer board has resulted in the kind of thing that they feel they need to exercise more control over,” he said. “Because, frankly, at the end of the day, we really don’t have a lot of power.” The SEC will accept comments on its proposed rule until Feb. 22. Then it will have the opportunity

O University leaders push for less control from Legislature The Associated Press PORTLAND — Two of Oregon’s leading figures in higher education are pushing for loosening legislative and other government controls of public universities. According to The (Eugene) Register-Guard, George Pernsteiner, chancellor of the Oregon University System, and Ed Ray, president of Oregon State University, made the case Friday at a City Club of Portland luncheon. They are advocating for legislation that would end the state’s treatment of the seven public universities as a state agency. Pernsteiner and Ray are supporting Senate Bill 242. The state Board of Higher Education’s recommendation is to give the uni-

versity system far greater autonomy from government regulations than other state agencies receive. The bill is expected to be heard by the Senate Education Committee after the Legislature resumes on Feb. 1.

Regulatory burden Pernsteiner said under the current system universities are burdened with thousands of regulations. Tuition surpluses, which have resulted from ongoing record-level enrollment, are at risk of being diverted into other areas of state spending, such as operating prisons, he said. For years, state higher-education officials have tried, with

only modest success, to reduce control that state legislators and others exert over the state’s public universities. This time around, the lobbying is complicated by the fact that the University of Oregon is pushing its own breakaway plan. Both the state board and the UO are arguing that their plans have merit given state government’s severe budget crisis. The state board’s plan would allow the university system to operate with more independence from the Legislature, similar to how the state’s community colleges are now run, but without the power to impose property taxes. The plan doesn’t include endowments, and the state would

continue to allocate money from the general fund each biennium for universities. But universities would have more freedom to raise and spend tuition, manage their budgets, raise private money and construct buildings. Also, universities would keep all their tuition revenue, including the interest earned on tuition while it is deposited in state accounts. Currently, that interest goes to the state general fund.

Setting tuition UO President Richard Lariviere’s plan would shift much of the authority for setting tuition and managing the UO’s affairs to a new, separate UO govern-

ing board, rather than keeping it with the Legislature. Lariviere’s plan also calls for the Legislature to allocate $800 million in state-backed bonds matched by an equal amount in donations to be raised by the UO to establish a $1.6 billion endowment that most likely would be controlled by the University of Oregon Foundation. The state would pay principal and interest on the bonds, and the UO would use the earnings from the endowment to help run the school. In return for receiving the state bond proceeds, the UO would forgo its annual allocation — currently about $62 million a year from the state’s general fund.

Database will ease clashes with mentally ill, police say

Record ponderosa pine found

By Alex Paul

MEDFORD — Unless you are an eagle soaring above the conifer forest or a big-tree hunter with an eagle eye, chances are you wouldn’t give the ponderosa pine a second glance. After all, it is but one of many wooden spires reaching into the green forest canopy high overhead in the Rogue RiverSiskiyou National Forest. But mammoth-tree hunters Michael Taylor, of Trinity County, Calif., and Mario Vaden, of Beaverton, instantly knew on Jan. 3 they had discovered a new pine king.

Albany Democrat-Herald

ALBANY — Police in Oregon soon may have a tool to help them deal with people who are mentally or physically ill. Residents with such conditions can now register with a voluntary statewide database that will provide instant information about their special needs, if and when they encounter law enforcement. The database will be managed by the Law Enforcement Data Systems, according to Frank Moore, Linn County health department director. Moore and state Rep. Andy Olson, R-Albany, have worked on the project since 2007. “The key is that this is a voluntary program,” Moore said. “There are many checks and balances built into this. The applicant must have two witnesses, one of whom cannot be a relative or someone who is providing them with treatment.” House Bill 3466, which authorized the database, was sponsored by Olson and Rep. Carolyn Tomei, D-Milwaukie. Linn is the first county to start using the system. Olson said the concept came to him while he was attending an interim judiciary committee meeting and county sheriffs said that jails have become holding places for individuals with mental health issues.

Tree hunters discover tallest of species in Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest By Paul Fattig (Medford) Mail Tribune

‘Knew right away’ “We were walking along, saw the top of the tree sticking up, and we both said, ‘Wow!’” Taylor said. “I knew right away it was the tallest.” “We have a new world record,” Vaden said. Not only is the ponderosa, at 268.35 feet high, the tallest known of its species, it is also the tallest known pine tree of any pine species on the planet, they say. Consider this: The pine’s height is roughly 32 feet shy of a football field turned on end. What’s more, it is among at least four trees in the grove that are taller than the tallest-known pines on the globe, they add. “This is like walking into a cathedral,” marveled Frank Callahan, 63, of Central Point, a botanist and Oregon’s reigning bigtree finder who joined the duo

on a visit to the titanic trees last week. “Instead of looking at the paintings on the ceiling at something like the great Michelangelo pieces, you are looking up at great architecture high in the trees,” Callahan added as he looked straight up. The site is a heavily treed little basin in the Wild Rivers Ranger District within two-dozen miles west of Grants Pass and south of the Rogue River. The tree hunters asked that the pines’ exact location not be identified because of concerns they may be vandalized. Big-tree hunters such as Callahan use a formula, including height, diameter and circumference, to come up with a champion tree, which is then placed on the National Register of Big Trees kept by American Forests, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization. In fact, Callahan has 19 national champion trees in Oregon to his credit, making him the top big-tree hunter in the state, according to the Oregon Department of Forestry. But Taylor, 44, an engineer by training, and professional arborist Vaden, 51, focus on height in their search. Taylor, along with Chris Atkins, discovered a redwood tree dubbed “Hyperion,” which towers 379.3 feet above the ground, making it the tallest known redwood on Earth. Their hunt for that redwood, located in Redwood National Park south of Crescent City, Calif., was featured in the book about talltree hunters, “Wild Trees,” by ac-

claimed author Richard Preston. To precisely measure a tree’s height, Taylor and Vaden employ a laser range finder. The computerized device, which considers factors such as the angle, determines how tall a tree is by measuring the time it takes the light to reflect back to the receiver. They say the champion tree is actually a bit taller than measured because the tripod holding the range finder had to be placed slightly uphill from ground level of the tree to allow the top to be seen. They used three different range finders to verify their measurements. However, they say the tree will need to be physically measured by a climber to confirm its height. They have notified forest officials, who did not know about these particular tall pines.

Keeping tree healthy Wayne Rolle, a forest botanist, called the discovery “exciting.” “We’re looking forward to learning the exact location of this tree, and taking any necessary steps to keep this tree intact and healthy,” Rolle said. Before hiking out of the pocket of tall pines, Taylor put his laptop on the hood of a nearby pickup truck and pulled up Google Earth. His computer can allow him to calculate the height by providing the ground-level differential, he noted. But the computer search

revealed no taller trees in the vicinity. Nor could the big-tree hunters find a spot providing a real-life overlook of the area. “Too many trees to see anything,” one of them observed. All told, a dozen “super tall” pines stand in the grove, said Vaden, a former Applegate Valley resident. The last two were found during a recent visit to the area, he noted. “Out of that group of 12, four of those ponderosas are new world’s tallest pines, each taller than the previously known world’s tallest pine among any pine species,” he said. The four tallest pines in the grove are 268.35, 266, 262 and 259.5 feet, he said. The tallest previously known ponderosa pine is in the aptly named Big Pine Campground southwest of Grants Pass, standing officially at 259 feet. However, Taylor and Vaden measured it at 252.3 feet. “It may have lost some height since it was last measured,” Taylor said. “The top is domeshaped, so it probably did.” It is not uncommon for tall trees to lose their tops during a storm, he said. The pine previously labeled as the tallest in the world was a sugar pine measuring 269.2 feet in California’s Yosemite National Park, but it died in 2009, Taylor said.

O  B 2 boys killed in crash near Mount Angel MOUNT ANGEL — Two boys are dead and their father and three other people are injured following a two-car crash at a rural intersection east of Mount Angel. The Marion County Sheriff’s department said the accident occurred shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday. Officers have identified the boys as 9-year-old Devin Hunt and 12-year-old Dawson Hunt, of Mount Angel. They were in a car driven by their father, 35-year-old Lenny Hunt, that was struck broadside. The department said the boys died at the scene and their father was hospitalized, but his condition wasn’t released. A married couple from Silverton and their 9-year-old granddaughter in the other vehicle sustained injuries not believed to be life-threatening. The department said roads were dry, but did not provide any crash details.

Weapons debate worth following


his month’s shootings in Tucson have resurrected a number of dormant gun-control proposals, including a ban on high-capacity magazines. Some of these are reasonable

enough in the abstract (does anyone really need a 30-round handgun clip?), but by and large they’re symbolic measures that allow elected officials to look like they’re doing something. That isn’t to say all gun-related policy debates these days are political theater, however. Jackson County Sheriff Mike Winters, in fact, is a oneman litigation machine who’s proven that weapons-related debate can be both interesting and highly relevant. Oregonians know Winters best as the sheriff who refused to release the names of constituents who hold concealed handgun licenses. The Oregon Court of Appeals ultimately told Winters that license information is a matter of public record. The public-or-private debate is far from settled, however. Even as it held that license information is open to public scrutiny, the Court of Appeals noted that exemptions to disclosure are available “on an individualized basis.” Collect enough “individualized” exemptions, and you have de facto secrecy. Meanwhile, state legislators in recent years have shown interest in shielding license information further from public scrutiny. In the meantime, Winters is tilting at another concealed-handgun windmill: medical marijuana. Nearly three years ago, the holder of a medical marijuana card applied to renew her concealed-handgun license. Under Oregon law, sheriffs must issue such licenses as long as applicants meet certain criteria, none of which has anything to do with medical marijuana. However, Winters had included a number of additional questions in his county’s weapons application, one of which addressed the use of controlled substances. When the applicant, Cynthia Willis, acknowledged her use of medical marijuana, Winters refused to give her a concealed-handgun permit, arguing that doing so would violate federal law. The Gun Control Act of 1968 prohibits anyone “who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance” — marijuana, for instance — from having a handgun. Because federal law trumps state law, Winters argued, Willis couldn’t have a license. Willis sued and prevailed in both

circuit court and, last year, in the Oregon Court of Appeals, which reasoned that the state and federal laws really aren’t in conflict at all. Federal law may, indeed, bar illegal users of controlled substances from having handguns. However, Oregon’s concealed weapons permit doesn’t authorize the ownership of handguns. It simply allows people who own handguns to conceal them. Winters has appealed his case to the state Supreme Court, which will hear it in March. He’ll certainly have his work cut out for him. Not only is he riding a long losing streak in state court, but he faces some heavyweight opponents, including the American Civil Liberties Union and state Attorney General John Kroger. We don’t find the prospect of medical marijuana users carrying concealed weapons particularly worrisome. They’re already free to drive cars and trucks, after all, and no law prohibits holders of concealed handgun permits from drinking alcohol. Nevertheless, Winters’ fight to withhold permits from medical marijuana users underscores the value of transparency, the target of Winters’ other permit battle. The state, of course, does not release the names of medical marijuana users, but the debate raises larger questions. For instance, are permits now available to other people who, depending upon your point of view, shouldn’t have them? Perhaps not, but we doubt marijuana users are the only potentially controversial group. In any case, members of the public deserve to maintain their freedom to review permit information and, like Winters, challenge eligibility they find troublesome. Concealing a handgun is a privilege, after all, not a right. Still, the best reason to maintain public access to permit information is the one we’ve noted on several occasions. Allowing the public to look over a sheriff’s shoulder ensures that he’ll be a particularly careful gatekeeper.

A push for openness A

ttorney General John Kroger, as promised, has announced his government-transparency initiative for the 2011 Legislature. The legislation would make a number of long-overdue changes to state law, imposing tighter deadlines for complying with records requests, limiting charges for request-related staff time and eliminating scores of exemptions. Now comes the hard part: convincing lawmakers, who tend to

value openness less than the public does, to go along with the changes. Kroger acknowledges that attempts to strengthen the state’s open-records law haven’t fared well in the past, but he hopes lawmakers will be more receptive to an effort spearheaded by the state attorney general. Moreover, he intends to “push very, very hard.” He certainly has our support. And if lawmakers value their credibility at all, Kroger will have their support, too.

Lieberman has been a valuable senator


n spring 2008, John McCain asked Joe Lieberman to speak on his behalf at the Republican National Convention. “If I look back, I wonder about it,” Lieberman now says. But it seemed the natural way to help the man he deemed most qualified to be president. After Barack Obama won the election, the hammer came down. Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, told Lieberman that some Democrats wanted to strip him of his chairmanship of the Homeland Security Committee. Lieberman, an independent, said if that happened then he might not be able to vote with the Democratic caucus. The decisive meeting occurred during the transition period. President Obama opposed punishing Lieberman, as did Sens. Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Dodd and Salazar. The entire caucus held a debate about Lieberman’s future with Lieberman right there in the room. “It wasn’t ad hominem,” Lieberman recalled. “Some people said, ‘We like you Joe. We just can’t accept this behavior.’” In the end, it wasn’t even close. Fortytwo Democratic senators voted to let Lieberman keep his chairmanship. Thirteen voted against. As Ezra Klein of The Washington Post noted recently, this turned out to be one of the most consequential decisions Obama and Reid made. If Lieberman had not been welcomed back by the Democrats, there might not have been a 60th vote for health care reform, and it would have failed. There certainly would have been no victory for “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal without Lieberman’s tireless work and hawkish credentials. The Kerry-Lieberman climate bill came closer to passage than any other energy bill. Lieberman also provided crucial support or a swing

DAVID BROOKS vote for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the stimulus bill, the banking bill, the unemployment extension and several other measures. So, while Lieberman is loathed by many liberal activists, he has always had much better relations with Democratic practitioners. Vice President Joe Biden sent me a heartfelt e-mail on Thursday that ended: “The Senate will not be the same without Joe’s leadership and powerful intellect. But it is his civility that will be missed the most.” These policymakers are judging Lieberman by the criteria Max Weber called the “ethic of responsibility” — who will produce the best consequences. Some of the activists are judging him by what Weber called an “ethic of intention” — who has the purest and most uncompromising heart. There’s a theory going around that Lieberman was embittered by the trauma of 2006 when Democratic primary voters in Connecticut defeated him because of his support for the Iraq War. There’s little evidence to validate this. Lieberman has always sat crossways between the two parties and has often served as a convenient bridge, infuriating Democrats, but then serving the party’s interests at important moments. Lieberman votes with the Democrats 90 percent of the time, but he has always been a Scoop Jackson Democrat who early on broke with his party on defense issues. In the 1990s, he challenged party orthodoxy on school choice, entitlement

reform and the place of religion in public life. But precisely because of these independent or hawkish credentials, he’s been able to leap in at critical moments and deliver for the party in a way no other senator could. Long before there was an Obamacare debate or the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal, Lieberman played an important role in saving Bill Clinton from impeachment. As momentum for impeachment was growing, Lieberman gave a crucial speech on the Senate floor that scolded Clinton for his behavior but resolutely opposed removing him from office. As several senior people in the Clinton White House understood immediately, Lieberman’s speech popped the boil — giving people a way to register anger, without calling for Clinton’s removal. The question is whether politicians with Lieberman’s moderate and independent profile can survive in the current political climate. “I have more warm relationships with Democrats in Washington than in Connecticut,” Lieberman acknowledges. It would be nice if voters made room for a few independents like this. There have been times, like during the health care debate, when I found Lieberman’s independence befuddling and detached from any evident intellectual moorings. But, in general, he has shown a courageous independence of mind. There are plenty of team players in government who do whatever the leader says. There are too few difficult members, who have complicated minds, unusual perspectives, the toughness to withstand the party-line barrages and a practical interest in producing results.

The Republicans’ false fiscal conservatism By Mark Parchman Bulletin guest columnist


just wanted to comment on two recent My Nickel’s Worth letters and one In My View article. In response to “Trickle-down works,” my first response was, huh? Did the author decide to ignore the facts? When G.W. Bush took office, yes the economy was diving, but it was the tech bubble burst that was the major factor. Gee, is this related to the banking industry and corporate America? How about some facts? In December 1988, Reagan left unemployment at 5.3 percent and then George H.W. Bush took it up to 7.4 percent by December 1992. Clinton took over and took it straight down to 3.9 percent by December 2000, at which point George W. Bush took it to 7.6 percent by January 2009 when Obama was inaugurated. Clearly Bush did not leave us with record low unemployment. In addition, the U.S. was left with a massive disaster in banking and real estate. There are

those areas again, banking and corporate America. How about those record tax revenues going to the federal government by the end of the Bush era? You can try to make a case for record tax income to the government but logic defies creating record tax revenue in the face of across-the-board tax cuts. Anyone, whether a household head or business head, knows that if you cut your income (cutting taxes) you cannot create record income (tax revenue). And if you spend more than you make, you run a deficit and you go into debt. Factually, let’s go all the way back to Reagan. In January 1981, when Reagan declared the federal budget to be “out of control,” the deficit had reached almost $74 billion (OMG!) and the national debt $930 billion (miss those days!). Under Reagan, by 1988 the national debt trickled up to $2.6 trillion (a 190 percent increase in eight years). Those were the good old days! Everyone had money, except of course, the federal govern-

IN MY VIEW ment. By 1992, under G.H.W. Bush, the debt went up to $4.3 trillion (a 59 percent increase), followed by Clinton where it went to $5.7 trillion in eight years (a 32 percent increase), followed by G.W. Bush who took it to $10.6 trillion by the day he left office (an 86 percent increase). Undoubtedly, you will ask, how about Obama? He started in January 2009 with unemployment at 7.6 percent and it peaked in October 2010 at 10.1 percent. As of Dec. 31, 2010, it is 9.4 percent. Is that a decrease under another Democratic president? The national debt was $14 trillion on Jan. 14. This is a 33 percent increase in debt, still less than Reagan, Bush and Bush. We’ll see how the figures end up in two more years or — perish the thought — six more years (deep breath all you conservatives). What is clear is that by the end of a president’s time in office, unemployment

over the last 30 years has always been highest under a Republican administration, and the national debt has risen most dramatically under Republican administrations. It begs the question, who is the most fiscally conservative? Does trickle-down economics work? It appears more to me that when an administration employs trickle-down, what really is happening is something else is just rolling down hill. In response to “Don’t fear Constitution,” I have absolutely no fear of the Constitution, and I have ultimate respect for the Constitution. We had to read it when I was in seventh grade as should all children in school. No, what I have is resentment! I resent that the representatives, who are actually the people’s paid employees, are spending time reading a document when they could be off their rears, using time that we are paying them for to be productive. They should be like any other employee and if they want to review a historical document

then do it on their own personal time, not when they are on our payroll. Propaganda? No, just grandstanding and drama. Get the new speaker a tissue, please. Oh, and do I think that all those representatives were rapt with attention during the reading? Please, if they were awake, they were likely playing with their new iPads, which we paid for also. Finally, in response to “Get the soldiers out of the Middle East,” this is an excellent article, with excellent analysis and suggestions. We should not have been in Iraq in the first place. History and congressional facts have proven this, and our military and youth have once again paid the price. I guess we kind of forgot the lessons of Vietnam. And what about all that Iraqi oil that was going to pay for this war? Interestingly, many defense officials making the decisions during the Vietnam era now believe it was a mistake.

Donna Atwood, longtime star of Ice Capades, 85 By Valerie J. Nelson Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Ice Capades star Donna Atwood had spent almost half her life on the road when she left professional figure-skating behind at 31 to raise her three young children in a custom-built Beverly Hills home complete with a piano that folded into the wall. She was so famous that Los Angeles Times headlines from the era used only her first name. “Donna to Retire in 1956 for Home Life,” said one atop an article that portrayed her as longing to “trade it all in for ‘home, sweet home.’” Yet it was a bittersweet decision for both Atwood and her husband, John H. Harris, operating owner of the touring Ice Capades show. To have his wife home full time, he had to give up the longtime star of his successful enterprise. “She was at the top of her game, and all of a sudden, she’s home,” said Don Harris, one of her twin sons. “That was a huge turning point in her life.” Atwood died Dec. 20 of respiratory problems at the Motion Picture Television & Country House in the San Fernando Valley. Her family confirmed her death this week. She was 85. Inspired after seeing Olympic champion Sonja Henie’s ice revue, a 13-year-old Atwood skated onto the ice for the first time at the Polar Palace in Hollywood. Days before her 16th birthday, the largely self-taught skater medaled twice at the 1941 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. She won the senior pairs crown with Eugene Turner and also took the junior ladies title. Harris was scouting for new Ice Capades talent when he saw Atwood skate in 1941 and offered her a contract. “The Olympics were being canceled because of World War II, so she didn’t have those to aim for,” her son said, “and her family didn’t have any money” because

her pharmacist father had died. At 16, she signed with the show and within a year was its star, “charming audiences” and displaying “dramatic flair,” according to a tribute in the 2002 U.S. Figure Skating Championships program. Billed as “the Sweetheart of the Ice,” she toured the U.S. and Canada for 15 years, giving more than 6,000 performances in two dozen venues, The Times reported in 1956. Disney used her as one of two human models for the ice-skating sequence with Bambi and Thumper in the 1942 animated Disney movie “Bambi.” Life magazine put Atwood and her longtime Ice Capades skating partner Bobby Specht on the cover in 1946 along with a simple headline: “Ice Show.” In 1949, she married Harris, who was 27 years her senior. A year later, she gave birth to twin sons and had a daughter in 1952. To make it easier for her to travel with young children, the Ice Capades prop shop built a portable nursery out of a 10-foot traveling trunk that could be rolled into her hotel room, her son said. When her sons reached school age, it was time for Atwood to establish “a real home” and retire, she said upon announcing her decision. On her farewell tour, she starred in an Ice Capades production of “Peter Pan” that was a condensed version of the Broadway show. She made her entrance flying above the audience. It was, she often said, her favorite role. Donna Arlene Atwood was born Feb. 14, 1925, in Newton, Kan., to Chester and Attie Atwood. Her family moved to Albuquerque, N.M., before relocating to Los Angeles when she was 9. From age 3, she had taken dancing lessons. After her father died when she was 13, her older brother gave Atwood her first pair of ice skates.

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne dies at age 96 in California By Andrew Dalton The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Jack LaLanne, the fitness guru who inspired television viewers to trim down, eat well and pump iron for decades before diet and exercise became a national obsession, died Sunday. He was 96. LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia Sunday afternoon at his home in Morro Bay on California’s central coast, his longtime agent Rick Hersh said. LaLanne ate healthy and exercised every day of his life up until the end, Hersh said. “I have not only lost my husband and a great American icon, but the best friend and most loving partner anyone could ever hope for,” Elaine LaLanne, LaLanne’s wife of 51 years and a frequent partner in his television appearances, said in a written statement. Just before he had heart valve surgery in 2009 at age 95, Jack LaLanne told his family that dying would wreck his image, his publicist Ariel Hankin said at the time. “He was amazing,” said 87year-old former “Price is Right” host Bob Barker, who credited LaLanne’s encouragement with helping him to start exercising often. “He never lost enthusiasm for life and physical fitness,” Barker told The Associated Press on Sunday. “I saw him in about 2007, and he still looked remarkably good. He still looked like the same enthusiastic guy that he always was.” LaLanne credited a sudden interest in fitness with transforming his life as a teen, and he worked tirelessly over the next eight decades to transform others’ lives, too.

‘Inactivity is the killer’ “The only way you can hurt the body is not use it,” LaLanne said. “Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it’s never too late.” His workout show was a television staple from the 1950s to the ’70s. LaLanne and his dog Happy encouraged kids to wake their mothers and drag them in front of the television set. He developed exercises that used no special equipment, just a chair and a towel. He also founded a chain of fitness studios that bore his name and in recent years touted the value of raw fruit and vegetables as he helped market a

He was 96. machine called Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer. When he turned 43 in 1957, he performed more than 1,000 pushups in 23 minutes on the “You Asked For It” television show. At 60, he swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco — handcuffed, shackled and towing a boat. Ten years later, he performed a similar feat in Long Beach harbor. He maintained a youthful physique and joked in 2006 that “I can’t afford to die. It would wreck my image. “I never think of my age, never,” LaLanne said in 1990. “I could be 20 or 100. I never think about it, I’m just me. Look at Bob Hope, George Burns. They’re more productive than they’ve ever been in their whole lives right now.”

Taking exercise home Fellow bodybuilder and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger credited LaLanne with taking exercise out of the gymnasium and into living rooms.

“He laid the groundwork for others to have exercise programs, and now it has bloomed from that black and white program into a very colorful enterprise,” Schwarzenegger said in 1990.

Weight training In 1936 in his native Oakland, LaLanne opened a health studio that included weight-training for women and athletes. Those were revolutionary notions at the time, because of the theory that weight training made an athlete slow and “muscle bound,” and made a woman look masculine. “You have to understand that it was absolutely forbidden in those days for athletes to use weights,” he once said. “It just wasn’t done. We had athletes who used to sneak into the studio to work out. “It was the same with women. Back then, women weren’t supposed to use weights. I guess I was a pioneer,” LaLanne said. The son of poor French immigrants, he was born in 1914 and grew up to become a sugar

addict, he said. The turning point occurred one night when he heard a lecture by pioneering nutritionist Paul Bragg, who advocated the benefits of brown rice, whole wheat and a vegetarian diet. “He got me so enthused,” LaLanne said. “After the lecture, I went to his dressing room and spent an hour and a half with him. He said, ‘Jack, you’re a walking garbage can.’” Soon after, LaLanne constructed a makeshift gym in his backyard. “I had all these firemen and police working out there, and I kind of used them as guinea pigs,” he said. He said his own daily routine usually consisted of two hours of weightlifting and an hour in the swimming pool. “It’s a lifestyle, it’s something you do the rest of your life,” LaLanne said. “How long are you going to keep breathing? How long do you keep eating? You just do it.” In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons, Dan and Jon, and a daughter, Yvonne.

Phyllis Robinson, top copywriter, dies at 89 By Stuart Elliott New York Times News Service

In the late 1940s, it was rare to find a woman in senior management at an advertising agency. But when Doyle Dane Bernbach opened its doors on June 1, 1949, its chief copywriter was Phyllis K. Robinson, who went on to help create memorable campaigns for Polaroid cameras and Levy’s rye bread as DDB achieved legendary status in the industry. Robinson died Dec. 31 at her home in Manhattan, her daughter, Nancy Thompson, said. She was 89. Robinson was recruited for Doyle Dane Bernbach by William Bernbach, for whom she had worked at Grey Advertising, and who founded the new agency with Ned Doyle and Maxwell Dane. Doyle Dane Bernbach made Madison Avenue history for the way it created ads. It was considered the first agency to assign copywriters and art directors to work together; previously, they had completed their tasks separately. Robinson was paired with an art director, Bob Gage, and together they produced ads for marketers like Orbach’s department store, Polaroid instant cameras and Levy’s breads. For Levy’s Real Jewish Rye, there were colorful posters. Some showed a slice of rye disappearing, bite by bite. The headline:

“New York is eating it up!” Other posters showed New Yorkers of various ethnicities eating sandwiches. The headline, which entered the vernacular: “You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s Real Jewish Rye.” For Polaroid, Robinson helped create a series of commercials featuring the actors James Garner and Mariette Hartley, who behaved so naturally together that millions of viewers mistakenly believed they were a married couple. “It was great fun to work on, very challenging, with all sorts of new products,” Robinson said in an interview in The New York Times in 2006 on the occasion of a tribute to the Polaroid campaign at the Museum of Television and Radio. She recalled working with Laurence Olivier in the 1970s to introduce the Polaroid SX70 camera; at the time, stars of his caliber rarely endorsed products. “Olivier was a dear,” she said. She described a moment when he came to the back of the auditorium where the spots were being filmed and asked, “How does this sound, Phyllis?” “And I thought: ‘God, strike me dead. It’s not going to get better than this.’” Doyle Dane Bernbach has been widely credited with helping to inspire Madison Avenue’s creative revolution in the 1960s. The agency’s ads had a clever

tone, unlike the bombast, sentimentality and hyperbole prevalent on Madison Avenue at the time. “Pre-DDB,” Robinson said in an interview with the trade publication Adweek in 2000, advertising was “artificial, sleepy and sometimes pretentious and schmaltzy.” Robinson “was involved in some of the most important campaigns of the last century,” said Keith Reinhard, chairman emeritus of DDB Worldwide, the Omnicom Group agency that is the successor to Doyle Dane Bernbach. Phyllis Kenner was born in New York on Oct. 22, 1921, and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree from Barnard Col-

lege in 1942 after majoring in sociology. During World War II, she was a statistician for the federal Public Housing Authority. Robinson’s first work at an ad agency came in 1946 at Bresnick & Solomont in Boston. She joined Grey the next year and Doyle Dane Bernbach two years after that. Robinson was the copy chief for the agency’s first 13 years and a mentor to notable copywriters like Paula Green, Julian Koenig, Mary Wells Lawrence and George Lois. She resigned as copy chief when her daughter, Nancy, was born in 1962, then worked three days a week until leaving Doyle Dane Bernbach in 1982 to start a consulting company.

smaller, greener Bend couple’s self-sustaining home gets downsized to cut cost The Bulletin

ore than 20 months after they started planning to build an extremely energy-efficient, environmentally friendly home on Bend’s west side, Tom Elliott and Barbara Scott are going back to the drawing board. After receiving construction cost estimates of $600 per square foot — or about $1.8 million to build the 3,000-squarefoot home, almost double the original budget — the Bend couple and their team of designers and green consultants are now thinking smaller and simpler. Elliott and Scott are reducing their home size by a third and hoping to shrink their budget by about $1 million. However, they’re still dedicated to building the greenest home possible by following the guidelines of the Living Building Challenge, a strict set of criteria that requires a home to make its own energy, collect its own water and use only Earth-friendly building materials.

Sit. Stay. Parse. Good girl! Border collie’s extensive vocabulary gets air time Chaser, a border collie who lives in Spartanburg, S.C., has the largest vocabulary of any known dog. She knows 1,022 proper nouns, a record that displays unexpected depths of the canine mind and may help explain how children acquire language. Chaser belongs to John Pilley, a psychologist who taught for 30 years at Wofford College, a liberal arts institution in Spartanburg. In 2004, after he had retired, he read a report in Science about Rico, a border collie whose German owners had taught him to recognize 200 items, mostly toys and balls. Pilley decided to repeat the experiment using a technique he had developed for teaching dogs, and he describes his findings in the current issue of

the journal Behavioural Processes. He bought Chaser as a puppy in 2004 from a local border collie breeder and started to train her for four to five hours a day. He would show her an object, say its name up to 40 times, then hide it and ask her to find it, while repeating the name all the time. She was taught one or two new names a day, with monthly revisions and reinforcement for any names she had forgotten. One of Pilley’s goals was to see if he could teach Chaser a larger vocabulary than Rico acquired. But that vocabulary is based on physical objects that must be given a name the dog can recognize. Pilley found himself visiting Salvation Army stores and buying up sackfuls of used children’s toys to serve as vocabulary items. See Dog talk / C6


A Bend-based company has obtained and fulfilled about 150 federal government contracts worth millions of dollars for information technology and engineering work around the world. And yet, the company, nLink, has little name recognition around Central Oregon. It has quietly operated, expanded and won contract bids in Bend, among other Learn offices, since more 2008. The n-Link Bill Mosewebsite, ley, CEO of which the Bend firm contains GL Solutions, info on which producthe many es regulatory contracts software for the firm has state governreceived, ment agencies, is located at said he had www never heard of n-Link. “As weird as that sounds,” he said. The name of a company that conducts similar business in the same city did not ring a bell to him. David Blair, a Central Oregon field representative for Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., stumbled across the company just 2½ weeks ago. He learned that the Bend office was a few blocks away — in the Franklin Crossing building downtown — and promptly met with n-Link’s head and Scott Larson, venture catalyst manager at Economic Development for Central Oregon. Larson said his organization had not previously been familiar with n-Link either. Founded in 1995 with its first office in Bremerton, Wash., n-Link works in many realms of technology, and describing it all in general terms is difficult. “‘What do you guys do again?’ I get that all the time,” said the company’s head, Sandra Green. “It’s hard to understand what we do.” Nevertheless, Green was willing to try to summarize. “Most of our work is highend software development — to develop the brains to perform a mission, you know, of a particular system,” she said. For example, she continued, “Like doing the software to manage the flow of the water (through) the dams to generate electricity … ” See n-Link / C6

EDITOR’S NOTE: Tom Elliott and Barbara Scott invited The Bulletin to follow their green-building project from start to finish, to share their goals, decisions, costs, concerns, problems and achievements, and to be an open book on what it takes to build such a home. The Bulletin is following the couple’s project through periodic stories. In this installment, Elliott and Scott discuss their decision to redesign the home, reducing its size by a third and dramatically lowering its cost. What hasn’t changed is their commitment to build a home adhering to the strictest greenbuilding standards available.

Grieving parents receive disturbing gift with poise Dear Abby: At a recent anniversary celebration for my parents, a well-meaning but thoughtless in-law sent them a gift from my deceased sister, with a card signed with her name. She died of cancer two years ago. Her loss has been difficult and heartbreaking for all of us, especially my parents. I am furious at this guest for giving such a “gift.” My parents were visibly shocked, but thanked the person anyway. I knew the in-law was planning something like this, and I asked that it not be done at the party. I wish I had just said, “No! Don’t do it!” I’m not sure whether I am madder at the gift-giver or myself. I feel like the work we have done to recover from the loss has been set back. I could use some good advice. — Speechless in New Jersey Dear Speechless: Your parents are extraordinarily gracious people to have handled the situation as tactfully as they did. It must have been devastating for them. The in-law’s level of insensitivity is appalling. Please do not blame yourself for what happened. If you had said, “Don’t do it,” it probably would have happened anyway. What’s done is done, now let it go. Dear Abby: My husband moved out on Feb. 14 of last year. (Yes, Valentine’s Day!) Our divorce will be final soon. My soon-to-be-ex parades his girlfriend all over town and with our friends. He claims it is over between us, yet he still comes over to mow the yard for me and do errands. He also comes here every Sunday to watch TV and visit. He says he wants to remain close friends even after the divorce. My question is: What gives with him? I don’t understand him at all. — Are We Done Yet? Dear Are We Done Yet?: For a

DEAR ABBY man to move out on Valentine’s Day illustrates that he has the emotional sensitivity of a golf shoe. Your ex may be doing these things out of guilt. Whether the two of you are done yet depends upon how you define “done.” Your marriage is over. Your romance is, too. What’s left to tie you together? If it’s masochism on your part, I don’t recommend it. Dear Abby: While I was at the grocery store, the woman in front of me said hello like she recognized me. I recognized her, but didn’t remember her name or where I knew her from. I asked her some lame questions about art class, but it was obvious I didn’t know her from there. It was very embarrassing. The message I would like to give your readers is, please don’t assume that someone can place you immediately. I am 70, and my memory is no longer as good as it used to be. The woman should have made sure I knew who she was, because it could have saved both of us from embarrassment. — Red-faced in Lee’s Summit, Mo. Dear Red-faced: I’m pleased to pass along your message. I have always thought the best policy in these situations is honesty. Because you were unable to place the woman, you should have told her you couldn’t recall her name and asked her. To do so would not have been a breach of etiquette, and the encounter would have been less embarrassing for both of you.

‘Legal’s’ Shahi has earned her stripes By Luaine Lee

‘Fairly Legal’

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

PASADENA, Calif. — When she started to work, actress Sarah Shahi was as naive as they come. When it came to life, she was wise beyond her years. Growing up in the tiny town of Euless, Texas, she used to imagine what she would do if she were in the place of TV’s protagonists. She always nurtured a compulsion to perform in musical theater. She wangled a position with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, though she’d never led a cheer in her life. And when director Robert Altman came to town to film “Dr. T and the Women,” he took a shine to her. But she had no clue who he was. At home, it was a different matter. Her father was a drug abuser, and she remembers when her sister was born. “My dad took my mother to the hospital. He came back, picked my brother and I up. He filled a trash bag full of clothes and canned food. He dropped us off at the hospital, and then he didn’t come back. “At 8, I felt like I had to grow up right then. It was not like consciously I was aware of what he was doing. I thought he was packing clothes for my mom, but I remember they had this dinner for the moms in the hospital who’d just given birth. It was for the husbands and wives. I looked around and all the other husbands were there, except for my mom’s. So I sat with her. I realized he’s not coming back. It’s just us. I (had) to grow up. And I stopped being a kid after that.” It’s that combination of innocence and savvy that makes Shahi so good in USA’s new “Fairly Legal.” Shahi plays a moxie little lawyer who knows the score

Sarah Shahi stars as Kate Reed in “Fairly Legal,” which airs Thursdays on the USA Network. but doesn’t play the game. After co-starring roles in “Alias,” “Life,” “The L-Word,” and having her son, who’s 18 months old, Shahi says she’s ready for anything. “I loved being pregnant. I felt like Mother Earth, loving any living creature. I felt I could talk to the squirrels. I know there are tons of women out there where pregnancy isn’t easy for them. But it worked for me. To give life, to have another human being live off you, I felt like a woman. I felt so sexy. I laughed every day and cried every day and loved every moment of it. I gave birth at home without any kind of drugs, it was me, a birthing coach, my husband and my midwife. I trusted my body, and I trusted my baby. I would talk to him beforehand. And my husband delivered him and that moment I felt I earned my stripes in a big way.” It seems that Shahi never takes the easy way. Once she had decided to pursue a career, she and her mom packed up her cherryred pickup and headed for Los

Angeles. She had no idea how she was going to conquer showbiz. Her mother stayed three days and was on her way when Shahi had to figure out how to make a living. It was only a couple of months before she landed a tiny part as a cheerleader. “In the beginning, when my dinners were coming from the 76 across the street, little cans of tuna, the struggle is hard, especially in L.A. when all around you are images of people enjoying the glamorous lifestyle. There are certain aspects of my career that still trouble me,” she said. One of those was being a new mom and carrying the lead role in “Fairly Legal.” The days were long and sometimes she’d see her son for only 30 minutes a day. Shahi treasures every second with her family. Married for two years to actor Steve Howey

(he was on “Reba” for six years), Shahi said, “In our hearts, we could be school teachers in the Midwest. We’d been together for seven years, and I knew who I was getting.” The typical family life had not been part of her upbringing. “I remember I loved going over to my friend’s house who had the mom and the dad, because I loved that. I loved being surrounded by the Norman Rockwell version of the family.” The day she finally decided to disconnect from her father was another obstacle. “I was 24. I was supporting myself. I was on my own. That day was when they talk about the notches in your belt, that was a big one because I remember the last conversation I had with him, that was not him. He was a crazy man. It was sad how quickly I realized that, it was so apparent. No matter who they are, your biological parents or not, I do believe we pick our parents. I believe in the spiritual world. I believe my child came to me for a reason and that my child came to my husband and I for a reason. And I came to my parents for a reason, and it was the moment when I said, ‘I never had a father, I’m not going to have a father. I’m not going to stop loving him. But this man is not my dad’ And that was a huge adult moment for me, and I felt a big loss.”

Where Buyers And Sellers Meet

House Continued from C1 While two commercial buildings have been certified as meeting the challenge, only one residence worldwide has been partially certified, but it didn’t meet the requirements in all six challenge categories, which Elliott and Scott are aiming to do. “We still really believe in the Living Building Challenge as an emerging international standard,” Elliott said, and the Bend couple wants to be a part of that. “If it’s really going to come forward as an important standard, there’s got to be some working, operating examples for people to see.” Added Scott, “My philosophy right now is this will be the building standard of the future. I really believe that.” But the couple decided the most cost-effective solution to getting there was to redesign, Elliott said. “That’s been a very painful decision to come to,” he said. Part of the reason for the escalating costs, the couple said, is that when they started designing the house, they did not know about the Living Building Challenge, so they were planning to build in step with other green standards. But eight or nine months into the design phase, they decided to go with the challenge and started adapting the house accordingly, adding elements to the original design. “On reflection, we have to ad-

mit that was a mistake,” Elliott said. The Living Building Challenge requires builders to collect rainwater for household use, for example, but Elliott and Scott’s plans called for complicated roof lines that would have needed multiple spouts, filters and systems. And the original design for the property had a large cistern separate from the house, which required additional pumps and pipes, Elliott said, whereas the new plans could simplify things by putting the cistern in the basement. About a year into the process, they started feeling like their planned home was too big, Scott said. They want the home to inspire others and showcase elements others can copy, but felt it was getting too far out of reach for most people. “We were feeling like this is like a big home on a hill,” she said. “It doesn’t really fit. ... We’re going to build something that I think is more modest, more affordable.” In December, the builders asked subcontractors for bids, Scott said. When the bids came back, instead of the budgeted $350 per square foot, the estimates were closer to $600 a foot. “It came back just way over. Everyone was shocked,” Scott said. For about a month over the holidays, the couple put the project on hold, she said. “We’ve been through the gamut of emotions, from just totally shocked, floored ... to being very angry — who can we blame, it doesn’t seem right.” So now the goal is to design

a new house that is about 2,000 square feet and around $325 a square foot, Elliott said, excluding the added cost of the energyand water-efficiency systems. In hindsight, Elliott said, the whole team — including him and Scott — probably should have tracked costs more closely during the process. Earlier this month, they called their design and consulting team together to figure out how to reduce costs and decided to design a smaller home. “We’re actually very excited about the opportunity to redesign, given what we’ve been able to reflect on,” Elliott said. “We’re going to redesign something that’s even cooler than the one we already have. It’s going to reflect more who we are and also a much deeper understanding of the commitment to net-zero energy and water (use).” The new house will be closer to 2,000 square feet, she said, probably eliminating one of the two offices and shrinking the size of the mudroom, den and other rooms. “We don’t need (the size) we were looking toward with this other design,” she said. “We really believe that’s important.” But they’ll keep a larger space for entertaining, she said, since they enjoy having people over. One way to fit that into a smaller home could be features like a covered deck. The new design also will probably include fewer windows and a simpler way to collect rainwater. It also will include more passive solar features, Elliott said,

with plans designed to use sunlight to heat the house as much as possible in winter. They’re sticking with the Living Building Challenge, which has strict requirements for local, nontoxic building materials as well as standards for generating all the energy a house needs and collecting all its water on-site. In designing a green house, smaller is key, said green building consultant Bruce Sullivan, of Earth Advantage. “Downsizing a house is the single most important thing you can do to save materials, save energy and to save money,” he said. Smaller means fewer building materials and less space to heat or cool. Other things to do are to reduce the window area, since windows provide significantly less insulation than walls. Insulation is important and with a smaller house, builders can use less expensive types, like fiberglass or cellulose, instead of spray foam. But mostly, he said, it’s a matter of choice — people could spend money on granite countertops, or more space, or they could put that money in to making a home energy efficient. “A lot of people say green is more expensive, but it isn’t really,” he said. “It’s the choices you make.” Kate Ramsayer can be reached at 541-617-7811 or at

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Reach out for more information and different opinions. Many people would fear this type of diversity, as it would take away or nullify their plan. You welcome knowledge. This increasing information can only make a project or your life better. Tonight: Find an outlet for your high energy. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Work with key people individually, allowing a greater give-and-take of ideas. Resist bigger meetings at the moment.

C6 Monday, January 24, 2011 • THE BULLETIN


Dog talk Continued from C1 It was hard to remember all the names Chase had to learn, so he wrote the name on each toy with indelible marker. In three years, Chaser’s vocabulary included 800 cloth animals, 116 balls, 26 Frisbees and a medley of plastic items. Children pick up about 10 new words a day until, by the time they leave high school, they know around 60,000 words. Chaser learned words more slowly but faced a harder task: Each sound was new, and she had nothing to relate it to, whereas children learn words in a context that makes them easier to remember. For example, knives, forks and spoons are found together.

Beyond nouns Pilley does not know how large a vocabulary Chaser could have mastered. When she reached 1,000 items, he grew tired of teaching words and moved to more interesting topics like grammar. One of the questions raised by the Rico study was that of what was going through the dog’s mind when he was asked to fetch something. Did he think of his toys as items labeled fetch-ball, fetch-Frisbee, fetch-doll, or did he understand the word “fetch” separately from its object, as people do? Pilley addressed the question by teaching Chaser three actions: pawing, nosing and taking an object. She was then presented with three of her toys and correctly pawed, nosed or fetched each one depending on the command given to her. “That experiment demonstrates conclusively that Chaser understood that the verb had a

n-Link Continued from C1 Green, n-Link’s founder, CEO and chairwoman of the board of directors, was talking about a project n-Link had done with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Portland. To meet the agency’s needs, n-Link came up with and implemented “hydroelectric powerhouse equipment control applications” for the Columbia and Snake rivers, according to a description of the work on the company’s website. The firm made headlines outside Bend earlier this year, after a five-year contract to provide IT help in classrooms at U.S. Army bases worldwide was given the thumbs-up to continue into its second year. Soldiers and their family members can participate in distance learning in the classrooms through video conference, and n-Link employees will ensure the software and hardware in use are up to date and problem-free. In exchange for the help, n-Link expects to receive about $33.5 million over time. Green said a government agency usually gives approval for a contract to continue into the second year, unless the contractor is not meeting expectations. So the contract’s move into a second year, or first option year, is a good sign, although not atypical for n-Link.

Assignments Currently, the company is seeking to obtain a $1 billion contract to protect data via cloud computing for the U.S. Department of Energy, Green said. For that project, Green said the winning bidder would have to provide a facility. “I’m actually toying with the idea of offering (to build) a cloud-computing data center out of Bend,” she said. A list of contracts n-Link has fulfilled runs long. The U.S. Department of Agriculture gave n-Link an assignment that necessitated complex logistics: providing USDA staffers in all offices in the country with new identification cards. The USDA needed to comply with HSPD-12, a 2004 directive from former President George W. Bush for federal government agencies on new standards for federal ID cards, and n-Link won the contract for work. Company employees brought mobile registrar stations to USDA offices in almost every state and scanned department workers’ fingerprints, which would be worked into the new identification system, Green said. And, she said, n-Link employees mentored USDA software developers in creating the most efficient possible system. Other government clients that have chosen n-Link for contract work include the BPA, GSA, FEMA, FAA and FOH. That’s a lot acronyms for Green to re-

NOVA scienceNOW via New York Times News Service

Chaser, a border collie that responds to more than 1,000 words, all proper nouns, is featured in “How Smart Are Animals?” on PBS’ NOVA scienceNOW. Seen back left is Chaser’s owner John Pilley, a retired psychologist, who decided to teach his dog a large vocabulary after reading a study in Science. meaning,” Pilley said. The 1,022 words in Chaser’s vocabulary are all proper nouns. Pilley also found that Chaser could be trained to recognize categories, in other words common nouns. She correctly follows the command “Fetch a Frisbee” or “Fetch a ball.” She can also learn by exclusion, as children do. If she is asked to fetch a new toy with a word she does not know, she will pick it out from ones that are familiar. Haunting almost every interaction between people and animals is the ghost of Clever Hans, a German horse that in the early

1900s would tap out answers to arithmetic problems with his hoof. Psychologist Oskar Pfungst discovered that Hans would get the answer right only if the questioner also knew the answer. He then showed that the horse could detect minute movements of the questioner’s head and body. Since viewers would tense as Hans approached the right number of taps, and relax when he reached it, the horse knew exactly when to stop. People project their expectations onto animals, particularly dogs, and can easily convince themselves the animal is achiev-

ing some humanlike feat when in fact it is simply reading cues unconsciously given off by its master. The danger of Clever Hans effects may be particularly acute with border collies because they are bred for the ability to pay close attention to the shepherd. “Watch a collie work with a sheepherder and you will come away amazed how small a gesture the person can do to communicate with his dog,” said Alexandra Horowitz, a dog behavior expert at Barnard College and author of “Inside of a Dog.” Juliane Kaminski, a member

But it just comes with the territory of working with the government, and Green has long since gotten used to it, she said.

maintained a low public profile. “It’s because we’re (working with) government, you know?” Green said. “As a government contractor, we tend to not … promote ourselves, because the government doesn’t usually like you to promote yourself.” A company such as hers is supposed to come across, she said, as “a humble civil servant. You’re serving the taxpayers.” Moseley, with GL Solutions, agreed. “Mainly, we take a similar tack,” Moseley said. “… It’s not important that we’re known, because we don’t provide direct services to the community.” The local contractors simply continue doing their business, not concerning themselves conveying a message or image in the public sphere. Last year, Green began a “new adventure” of turning nLink into an employee-owned company, through an employee stock-ownership plan, or ESOP. Instituting the ownership change benefits her and the other 150 employees — about seven of

whom work in the Bend office — as they receive pension money that ordinarily would go toward federal taxes. At the same time, in the past year or so, Green said, she has been trying to transition out of multinational work, such as what she does at n-Link, and become more grounded in the local community — in Bend, to be specific. Toward that end, she opened The Phoenix restaurant in a new space in east Bend in January 2010, after its original location in the Old Mill District had closed under different ownership in 2009. And Green said she wants to start more small businesses in the city. “So I’ve got to learn how to promote … our restaurant and any business I do that’s out of the government, because it’s just not in our nature — my nature, my background,” she said. “So we’ll get there.”

Background Once Larson realized how successful n-Link is, he said, he wanted to enlist Green in the Stable of Experts, a collection of experienced business minds with Central Oregon ties who volunteer to guide startup companies and entrepreneurs here. The Stable of Experts resides under the umbrella of EDCO’s Venture Catalyst program, Larson said. Green, he said, is a “very intelligent, very well connected individual with an impressive background.” Green, 53, grew up in Laconia, N.H. She said she earned her master’s degree in information and communications systems under the electrical engineering department from the University of Lowell, which has since become part of what is now called University of Massachusetts Lowell. Much of the work in her career has related to government business, she said. Before establishing n-Link, Green said she worked in Boston at the nonprofit Mitre Corp., where she designed networks for scores of computers at companies or government agencies. She was later recruited by the Planning Research Corp. in McLean, Va. — which the Northrop Grumman Corp. eventually acquired — to transfer Pentagon networks from centralized, mainframe computing to distributed, local-area computing. After leaving PRC, she said she did similar work as vice president for business development at a small company called I-Net. She said she opened a new office for the company in Bremerton, so it could do more business on the West Coast. In 1994, she left I-Net, and n-Link was born the next year. The company has expanded, adding executives, offices and clients along the way. It has also begun to contract out certain elements of work it is assigned. For example, along with n-Link, three subcontractors on the Army classroom project have kept staff on-site at military bases in the U.S. All the while, the company has

of the research team that tested Rico, was well aware of the Clever Hans effect. So she arranged for the dog to be given instructions in one room and to select toys from another, making it impossible for the experimenter to give Rico unwitting cues. Kaminski works at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Pilley took the same precaution in testing Chaser. He submitted an article describing his experiments to Science, but the journal rejected it. Pilley said that the journal’s advisers had made valid criticisms, which he proceeded to address. He and his co-author, Alliston Reid of Wofford College, then submitted a revised article to Behavioural Processes. Horowitz, who was one of Science’s advisers in the review of Pilley’s report, said of the new article that “the experimental design looks pretty good.” Kaminski, too, regards the experiment as properly done. “I think the methodology the authors use here is absolutely sufficient to control for Clever Hans,” she said.

How children learn The learning of words by Rico and Chaser may have some bearing on how children acquire language, because children could be building on the same neural mechanisms. Pilley and Reid conclude that their experiments “provide clear evidence that Chaser acquired referential understanding of nouns, an ability normally attributed to children.”

But the experiment’s relevance to language is likely to be a matter of dispute. Chaser learns to link sounds to objects by brute repetition, which is not how children learn words. And she learns her words as proper nouns, which are specific labels for things, rather than as abstract concepts like the common nouns picked up by children. Kaminski said she would not go as far as saying that Chaser’s accomplishments are a step toward language. They show that the dog can combine words for different actions with words for objects. A step toward syntax, she said, would be to show that changing the order of words alters the meaning that Chaser ascribes to them. Pilley says he is working on just that point. “We’re trying to teach some elementary grammar to our dog,” he said. “How far we’ll be able to go we don’t know, but we think we are on the frontier.” His goal is to develop methods that will help increase communication between people and dogs. “We are interested in teaching Chaser a receptive, rudimentary language,” he said. A Nova episode on animal intelligence, in which Chaser stars, will air Feb. 9.

hen the weather is nice, Bend’s Erik Hammer and his wife, Karen, can be seen almost daily toting their three young daughters around town — to the pool, the park, the library — by bicycle. The youngest girls, ages 2 and 4, sit together in a pull-behind bicycle trailer while the 6-year-old pedals behind dad on a tagalong. (Also known as a trailer bike, a tagalong is a specialty bike that allows young children to ride via a secure attachment to the back of an adult bicycle.) “We use it as a way to educate them on the safety of riding bikes as far as signaling and obeying traffic laws,” said Erik Hammer. “The girls have a blast with it. We look for stuff to do that includes a bike … we go to Shevlin Park a lot and ride on the road that goes all the way back (into the park). We’ve done the Tour des Chutes and the Ride of Silence (two annual local community bike rides).” But a bill recently introduced in the Oregon House of Representatives would, if passed as written, make it illegal for parents to haul their children around by bike. Already the proposal has generated such an outcry from the Oregon cycling community that its author has conceded the bill will not be advanced in its current form. House Bill 2228, authored by Rep. Mitch Greenlick (D-Portland), would place a ban on carrying children under 6 years of age on a bicycle or in a bicycle trailer. Cyclists statewide have also voiced their collective opposition


to another recently proposed bike safety measure: House Bill 2602, sponsored by Rep. Mike Schaufler (D-Happy Valley), seeks to prohibit cyclists from riding while wearing a “listening device that is capable of receiving telephonic communication, radio broadcasts or recorded sounds.” Violators would face a fine of $90. Greenlick told me last week that his measure to ban young children from being carried in a bicycle trailer was prompted by an Oregon Health Sciences University study, which he said revealed a high rate of accidents and injury among bicycle commuters. Though the study reported no data related to accidents involving children or children in bicycle trailers, Greenlick was concerned that if adults were vulnerable users, then children riding behind in a trailer must also be at risk. “I decided to try to find some information about whether these bike trailers on the back were safe,” Greenlick said, “and there wasn’t any.” Greenlick further maintained that he proposed the ban “to get the discussion started.” “I’m a public health guy,” he continued. “And nobody is asking the question if it’s safe to put a kid on the bike. It seems to me parents would be asking questions like that.” Greenlick admitted last week that the bill likely will not emerge out of committee as written. See Restrictions / D6

resh off his team’s second consecutive Tri-Valley Conference road win, Madras boys basketball coach Allen Hair said: “Thank God for 4A.” That pretty much sums up the first winter sports season for Madras — and for Prineville’s Crook County High — in Oregon’s 4A classification following four years in Class 5A. After struggling to keep up with larger 5A programs — Oregon’s 5A classification is made up of schools with student enrollment between 870 and 1,479 — Madras (783 students) and Crook County (782) have found life in 4A, which is made up of schools with between 400 and 869 students, a much better fit. Look at Hair’s boys basketball program. Playing an earlyseason nonconference schedule laden with 5A and 6A opponents, the White Buffaloes went 3-10 over their first 13 games. But after two Class 4A Tri-Valley Conference games, Madras leads the league with a 2-0 record. While the Buffs are just 5-10 overall so far this season, they are 4-4 against other 4A teams. The White Buffalo girls basketball team has enjoyed even more success against opponents from schools closer to Madras in size. The Madras girls, who also are 2-0 in league play, are 10-5 overall this season but 8-1 against other 4A opponents. Crook County has experienced similar success. In 5A the last few years the Cowboys’ wrestling team has consistently been one of the more successful programs in the state, even finishing second at the 5A state tournament in 2007. But this season, in its first year at the 4A level, Crook County placed first in its classification at the Oregon Wrestling Classic — the unofficial dual-meet state championships — for the first time since 1991. And the Cowboys will be serious contenders for the 4A team title at next month’s state wrestling championships. The Crook County basketball teams have also taken a turn for the better this season. The Cowboys went winless last season, but they are currently 8-7 during the 2010-11 campaign, including a 5-3 record against other 4A teams. See 4A / D5

Tennis • WTA player’s relative banned from tour: The WTA has banned a member of Aravane Rezai’s family from attending its tournaments while it investigates a safety issue. “A serious safety matter has been brought to the WTA’s attention, which has resulted in a family member of Aravane Rezai being indefinitely suspended from all future WTA events pending our investigation,” the WTA said in a statement Sunday.

Petrucci spoke with Rogge during International Olympic Committee meetings in Switzerland last week and said Rogge was enthusiastic about Rome’s intentions. Rome, which hosted the 1960 Games, is the only city so far to have been nominated by its national Olympic committee to bid for 2020.

In Sunday’s other game, China defeated Sweden 2-1. The top-ranked Americans won on a long shot by Lindsey Tarpley in the 70th minute. Lauren Cheney of the U.S. opened the scoring in the 53rd minute. Canada tied it two minutes later on a hard shot by Melissa Tancredi after a solo run.

Hockey • Goalie stays away from Islanders: Evgeni Nabokov is staying away from the New York Islanders. The only question is whether that decision is permanent. Either way, general manager Garth Snow isn’t saying if he has been given that answer. Nabokov failed to report to the Islanders on Sunday, one day after he was claimed by New York off waivers from the Detroit Red Wings, who hoped to add the veteran goalie to their roster for the playoff drive.

Predators beat Oilers in shootout The Associated Press EDMONTON, Alberta — Pekka Rinne thought he was in big trouble when he lost his goalie stick during a wild scramble on an Edmonton power play in overtime. Instead, the wayward stick made the save of the game in the Nashville Predators’ 3-2 shootout victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night. Shawn Horcoff beat Rinne with a diving backhander, but the puck struck the unattended stick at the goal line and deflected away. A video review confirmed the puck didn’t fully cross the line. “That was a huge lucky break,” Rinne said. “I dropped my stick and I had no clue where it was and luckily it was on the goal-line and that saved the game for us.” Predators coach Barry Trotz agreed his team was fortunate. “You’ve got to be good to be lucky and lucky to be good,” Trotz said. “That’s part of the game. It’s like the referee being in the way or what have you. We’ll take it.” Cody Franson scored the lone shootout goal and Rinne made 22 saves in regulation and overtime and stopped all three Edmonton shooters in the tiebreaker. The Predators, fourth in the Western Conference with 60 points, have won three straight — all on the road — and 10 of their last 12. “I didn’t like the way we played,” Trotz said. “I had a feeling we’d be a little bit sloppy with three games in four nights before we got to this one. We got through the first period but as the game went on we turned way too many pucks over. I don’t take anything away from the Oilers but we could have been a little bit firmer in a lot of areas in our game.” The Oilers, last in the conference, have dropped five in a row and 14 of 16. “As much as the opponents are really good and most of them are ahead of us in the standings — except one — we tend to beat ourselves,” Oilers coach Tom Renney said. “It is tough and it tests your patience and your ability to persevere as a coaching staff. But it is even tougher for the players because they are working their guts out.” Joel Ward gave Nashville a 2-1 lead on a

Italian takes longest women’s major match

Vonn battles through injury for super-G win The Associated Press CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy — Skiing through pain is nothing new for Lindsey Vonn. She is also winning some of her toughest races while injured. Fortified by a few painkillers, she captured a super-G Sunday despite a strained left knee. She hurt herself the day before on a strenuous and spectacular recovery in a downhill. “It’s really swollen and it’s pretty solid pain,” Vonn said. “But that’s part of the job. It’s definitely not the worst injury I’ve had by a long shot. It’s definitely something I can deal with.” Vonn finished in 1 minute, 22.64 seconds on a clear day, beating overall World Cup rival Maria Riesch of Germany by a 0.05 seconds. Swiss teenager Lara Gut finished third, 0.88 back. It was the second victory in three days for Vonn, who won a super-G Friday on the Olympia delle Tofane course. Julia Mancuso, Vonn’s American teammate, finished fourth in her new Hawaiian racing suit that she designed. Swedish standout Anja Paerson was fifth. Last year, Vonn had a severely bruised shin when she won the Olympic downhill and took the bronze in the super-G in Vancouver. The year before she won her second consecutive overall World Cup title despite slicing her thumb on a champagne bottle in a victory celebration at the world championships. “Nothing really tops the shin injury,” Vonn said. “I feel like I’ve dealt with a lot of injuries in the past and this one is pretty mild and definitely skiable.” Having finished third despite a big mistake in the downhill, Vonn skipped the awards ceremony Saturday and received therapy throughout the afternoon and evening. She hopes to be healed by the Feb. 8 world championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. If not, she’ll fight through it. A few days ago, Vonn wondered about possibly getting through an entire major championship without any physical problems. “That’s always the goal,” she said. “It just never really works out that way,” Vonn’s injury troubles at major events date to the 2006 Turin Olympics when she crashed during training for a downhill. She went directly from her hospital bed to the race course and finished seventh in super-G and eighth in downhill. At the 2007 worlds, a knee injury ruled her out of her final event. On Sunday, Riesch was the first of the favorites to ski and jumped a bit too far, almost missing the final gate heading into the finish area. The slight error likely cost her a victory. Still, Riesch holds a 155-point lead over Vonn in the overall standings. Vonn leads Riesch 380-229 in the super-G. “I’m satisfied with my weekend. It’s tough to beat Vonn in the speed events and I won on Saturday and was second today. Only Friday was bad,” Riesch said, referring to her ninth-place finish to open the weekend. Vonn started immediately after Riesch and made virtually no errors as a few thousand spectators watched her descent on the jumbo screen in the finish area to the disco tune of “Barbra Streisand.” It was the 39th career victory for Vonn and her fifth in Cortina, tying her with retired Italian standout Isolde Kostner. Austrian great Renate Goetschl holds the record with 10 wins in Cortina. “I’ve had some of my best results here, but I’ve also had some really bad almost crashes or crashes, and I feel like it’s because I’m always on the limit here — you really have to push it and sometimes when you’re pushing the limits making mistakes,” Vonn said. Mancuso, decked out in her suit featuring green tropical flowers, skied after Vonn and made a slight error toward the end of her run that cost her a topthree finish. Still, Mancuso was content with her weekend, which also included a fourth-place finish Friday and a runner-up result Saturday — her best World Cup finish in three years. Also on Sunday: Grange wins slalom, Kostelic takes combined event KITZBUEHEL, Austria — Jean-Baptiste Grange of France won a men’s World Cup slalom Sunday, while overall leader Ivica Kostelic of Croatia placed second to take the combined event for his sixth title this month. Bode Miller, of the United States, skied out in the first run, wasting a good chance to win the combined after placing second in Saturday’s downhill. Grange overcame a major mistake and used his left arm to avoid a fall while posting the fastest second run in the slalom. He finished in an aggregate of 1 minute, 40.93 seconds for his eighth career win and second of the season after Levi, Finland, in November.

Britain’s Andy Murray makes a forehand return to Austria’s Jurgen Melzer during their fourth-round match at the Australian Open tennis championships in Melbourne, Australia, earlier today.

Murray headed to quarters By John Pye The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia — Andy Murray moved into the Australian Open quarterfinals without dropping a set, beating No. 11 Jurgen Melzer 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 today in an impressive victory that will heighten expectations about him breaking a long British drought. Murray closed with an ace to eliminate Melzer in straight sets at Melbourne Park for the second year in a row. The 2010 finalist gets a surprising opponent for his next match after 22-year-old Alexandr Dolgopolov stopped fourth-seeded Robin Soderling’s eight-match winning streak with a 1-6, 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 victory. Murray has lost only 22 games on his way to the quarterfinals, the same stage where he beat Rafael Nadal here last year. “Last year I played some of the best tennis of my life,” said Murray, who made only 10 unforced errors against Melzer. “I’m hitting the ball really well, I hope it can continue. “But I don’t want to get carried away — I’ve never won one of these things before.” He has lost to Roger Federer in two major finals, extending a long title drought for British men at the Grand Slam tournaments that dates to 1936. Murray has only played Dolgopolov once, and is wary of his unorthodox game. The Ukrainian player recalled his only previous meeting with Murray, a loss in the Davis Cup, and was surprised at the pace of the ball. “I remember I was expecting more,” he said. “I thought he has a really big pace. I didn’t play those kind of players in real life. I just saw it on TV. TV makes it look much faster.” Soderling hadn’t dropped a set during his surge that started with his run to the title at the Brisbane tuneup event. He dominated the opening set but couldn’t keep it up against Dolgopolov, who is making his fourth appearance in a major and was coming off a five-set win over former Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Dolgopolov’s cross-court backhand to bring up his first match point was typical of the 50 winners he hit against a stunned Soderling, the highest of the seeded players knocked out of the men’s draw. Soderling saved three match points, but his run came to an end with another unforced error, his 51st. Dolgopolov earned nine breaks, including three times after conceding a break himself in the fifth set. The 26-yearold Soderling had dropped his serve only twice this year. “I’m trying to get his weak side and play uncomfortable for him — then if I have chances to make winners, that’s my game,” Dolgopolov said. “He has one of the hardest balls on tour but I was able to read his serve pretty well.” Soderling acknowledged Dolgopolov’s talent, but the Swede said his own serve deserted him. His six aces were mixed with six double-faults. “He’s a great player. He has a really good backhand and he’s moving well. He’s defending very well. He’s a great counter puncher,” Soderling said. “But mostly I had tough times with myself.” Dolgopolov said his father worked as a coach for the

I was a bit maybe annoying for some players to play with me,” he said. “It was nice to start a tennis career like that.” No. 2-ranked Vera Zvonareva continued her roll toward a third consecutive Grand Slam final with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Iveta Benesova. Zvonareva, who lost the Wimbledon final to Serena Williams and the U.S. Open final to Kim Clijsters last year, set up a quarterfinal match against No. 25 Petra Kvitova, who rallied to beat No. 22 Flavia Pennetta 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Andy Roddick’s 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 fourth-round loss to 19th-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka on Sunday night means there’s no Americans in the men’s or women’s quarterfinals. The eighth-seeded Roddick was the last American man standing. The women were out before the third round ended.

MELBOURNE, Australia — One of the players was so exhausted she forgot who was serving. The other kept checking the ticking clock on center court and thinking to herself, “Brava, Francesca!” The clock finally stopped at 4 hours, 44 minutes, when French Open champion Francesca Schiavone of Italy beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 16-14 in the fourth round at the Australian Open and set a record for the longest women’s Grand Slam match in the Open era. An exhausted but elated Schiavone described the match as “fantastic!” Though the 30-year-old Schiavone is at an age when many players are considering retirement, she’s playing the best tennis of her career and making history as goes. She won the French Open last year at 29, becoming the first Italian to win a major and the oldest woman in four decades to win her first Grand Slam. She also became the oldest woman in 12 years to crack the top 10 for the first time. With Sunday’s win she set a new personal best, reaching her first Australian Open quarterfinal in 11 tries. She has played in 42 consecutive Grand Slams. She also is expected to rise from her current career-high ranking of No. 6. “When you’re in a situation like this, I think every point is the most important. It’s like every point is match point. You have to keep going,” she said. Schiavone saved six match points and closed the final set on her third match point. “Physically you are tired,” she said. “Mentally it’s the same.” Schiavone kept fresh by dousing herself with bottled water at game changeovers, pouring it over her head, arms and legs. Both players sought rubdowns from their trainers to ease tight muscles. The third set was a three-hour marathon, with incredible shots and saves by both players, going more-or-less game for game until Schiavone edged ahead and ended it at a staggering 16-14. The longest previous women’s match in a Grand Slam tournament was here last year when Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova beat Regina Kulikova 7-6 (5), 6-7 (10), 6-3 in a contest lasting 4:19. At Roland Garros last year, Schiavone gained a reputation for dropping to the court and kissing the clay, a ritual that started in the quarterfinals and continued through the final. There was no kissing the ground Sunday night at Melbourne Park. Schiavone raised both arms to the sky and then walked to the net to hug Kuznetsova, the 2009 French Open champion. “At some stage, I was like, ‘What’s the score? Who’s serving?’ ” Kuznetsova said. “I had no clue sometimes. It was so hard to count.” The 25-year-old Russian beat seven-time Grand Slam winner Justine Henin in straight sets in the third round, which she described as “definitely hard.”


Triple-double leads Wisconsin over Northwestern The Associated Press

Lindsey Vonn celebrates her first-place finish on the podium at the end of an alpine ski women’s World Cup super-G race in Cortina d’ Ampezzo, Italy, Sunday.

EVANSTON, Ill. — Wisconsin guard Josh Gasser had a game to remember. The Badgers’ freshman had 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for the first triple-double in school history, helping Wisconsin to a 7846 victory over Northwestern on Sunday. “Towards the last couple of minutes I had an idea that I was close and wanted just to get one more (assist) at the end,” said Gasser, who got his final assist with 3 minutes to play. “Fortunately Brett (Valentyn) knocked it down. He missed one before that and told me he was going to get another.” Jon Leuer scored 19 points to lead a balanced attack for No. 18 Wisconsin. Keaton Nankivil had 16 points and Jordan Taylor added 14 as the Badgers (15-4, 5-2 Big Ten) won their third straight game to remain third in the conference standings.

John Shurna and Luka Mirkovic scored 13 points apiece for the Wildcats (13-6, 3-5). The Badgers broke the game open midway through the opening quarter and put it out of reach early in the second half. The victory was the Badgers’ most lopsided in the Big Ten this season and gave them four wins in five games. Wisconsin broke a 14-all tie on Gasser’s baseline 3-pointer at the 13minute mark and the Badgers were off on a 15-4 run over the next 5:10 to open a 29-18 lead. Forward Mike Bruesewitz scored seven points during the surge with one inside feed and two jumpers, including a 3pointer. Taylor added back-to-back buckets, including his first 3 of the game. The Badgers opened their biggest lead at 45-26 just before the half when Gasser picked up the ball in a scramble under his basket and put it in.

Wisconsin shot 62 percent (18 for 29) in the opening half, including 7 of 13 from beyond the arc. The Badgers outscored Northwestern 7-0 off turnovers and outrebounded the Wildcats 15-7. Leuer had just two points in the first half, but scored 15 of Wisconsin’s first 20 in the second half as the lead grew to 65-30 by the 12:58 mark. The 32-point loss was Northwestern’s largest of the season. In other games on Sunday: No. 21 West Virginia . . . . . . . . . . . . . 56 South Florida. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 46 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Casey Mitchell had 13 points and 14 rebounds to lead West Virginia to a win over South Florida. John Flowers and Kevin Jones added 13 points apiece for West Virginia (13-5, 4-2 Big East). The Mountaineers bounced back from a 75-71 loss to Marshall on Wednesday after entering the Top 25 for the first time this season.

Steelers silence Jets, take AFC title By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Ben Roethlisberger knelt on the turf and buried his head in an AFC championship shirt. “I’m going to enjoy this,” he later said. No one had to ask what he meant. A season that began with a fourgame suspension is one win away from giving him a third Super Bowl victory. His Pittsburgh Steelers hung on Sunday and won its third AFC championship in six years, 24-19 over the New York Jets. Terrible Towels will wave again at the Super Bowl, where the Steelers will meet Green Bay after silencing Rex Ryan’s wild bunch. Look out Big D, here comes another Big D — in black and gold, and with an unmatched history of carrying off the Lombardi Trophy. And here comes a quarterback with a history of winning the big ones. “Shoot, any time you get to the Super Bowl, it feels good,” he said. “I don’t care what you’re going through or what’s going on. We put a lot of stuff behind us early and found a way.” They clearly found a way to shut down the Jets’ season, ending it the way it started — with hard knocks. And not the kind on HBO. The Steelers (14-4) will challenge the Packers, who are 2½-point favorites, with a versatile attack led by their quarterback and running back Rashard Mendenhall. And with a defense, led by James Harrison, that had a fumble return for a touchdown and a goal-line stand that shut down the Jets’ comeback in the fourth quarter. It will certainly test Aaron Rodgers in the title game in Dallas on Feb. 6. That smothering defense set the tone for most of a frigid night at Heinz Field to end the Jets’ stunning postseason run. Ryan slammed down his headset when Antonio Brown caught a pass for a first down that allowed Pittsburgh to hang on and run out the clock. “It’s not always pretty with us,” Roethlisberger said, “but we do the job. We have a lot of tenacity. We have a

don’t quit attitude and mentality. Everybody is just always there for each other.” The Steelers ended the Jets’ season with a dominant first half for a 24-3 lead. Mendenhall had 95 of his 121 yards and a touchdown in the first half. “We played a good half. We never played a good game, and that was the difference,” Ryan said in a postgame interview with CBS. “You get to this point, you’ve got to play a great game against a great opponent and we played a good half and that was it.” One more great game by Roethlisberger and his teammates and the season will end in a way hardly anyone could foresee back in September. He sat out the season’s first four games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy — an outgrowth of a college student’s accusations that he sexually assaulted her in Georgia last March. The quarterback was never prosecuted over what was the second such set of allegations against him. Now he will lead the Steelers into their eighth Super Bowl, a game they handle pretty well — and have a record six titles to show for it. The cocky Jets seemed to have left everything they had in New England last Sunday. There was little trash talking all week and even less fire early in their biggest game since winning the championship 42 years ago. They haven’t been back to the Super Bowl. The Steelers are regulars, including Super Bowl titles for the 2005 and 2008 teams, both led by Roethlisberger and a fierce defense sparked by playmaking safety Troy Polamalu. Polamalu, his long hair flowing from under his helmet, didn’t have to do a whole lot this time. Not with the way his teammates whipped the Jets at the line of scrimmage before a spirited New York surge in the second half. “We overcame a lot more obstacles this year than we have in the past,” Polamalu said. “But we still got one more to go. “ And too often, New York’s defense was like a swinging gate that Roethlisberger and Mendenhall ran through with ease.

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji (90) reacts after intercepting and running the ball back for a touchdown against the Chicago Bears during the second half of the NFC Championship game Sunday in Chicago. The Packers took a 21-14 win. ball back with under 3 minutes left. Hanie drove the Bears to the Green Bay 29-yard line, then threw a fourthdown interception to Sam Shields — the rookie’s second of the game. Now all those Pro Bowl voters who didn’t think Rodgers was worthy can relax. They’re off the hook. Rodgers will be headed to the Super Bowl instead. Rodgers proved ready for the biggest day of his brief but impressive career as the successor to Brett Favre, even if his final stat line didn’t look impressive after an ugly, hard-fought game. He threw for 244 yards with two interceptions — a disappointment, given how well he had played lately. But his play in the first half was good enough to put the Bears in a two-touchdown hole, boggling a good defense that suddenly seemed to fall for every play-action fake. Chicago was ready for a championship party under sunny skies and 20-degree temperatures, and went wild from the national anthem on. But Rodgers quieted them down quickly, marching the Packers on an opening drive that ended with Rodgers scrambling for a score. The Bears went with a heavy dose of running back Matt Forte early on, with limited success. Early in the second quarter, Brandon Jackson faked Brian Urlacher out for a long gain on a screen pass, and Rodgers’ pass to Jordy Nelson set up James Starks’ 4-yard touchdown run to give Green Bay a 14-0 lead. It was the latest in a series of big moments for Rodgers, who has earned near-universal praise for the way he has played this season — especially since sitting out the Packers’ Dec. 19 loss at New England because of a

Victory sends Packers to Super Bowl CHICAGO — There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC championship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers. He wasn’t even at his best and, still, he was better than the first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by the Chicago Bears against their bitter rivals. Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-14 victory Sunday over Chicago. “It’s an incredible feeling,” Rodgers said. “I’m at a loss for words.” Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester under wraps and the Packers’ superb defense took care of the rest in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs. It was the 182nd meeting in the league’s most historic feud, and the stakes had never been bigger. Now the Packers (13-6) are headed to Dallas. And no matter what happens in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, the Packers and their fans hold ultimate bragging rights over their foes to the south. Green Bay will play the Pittsburgh Steelers, who topped the New York Jets 24-19 in the AFC championship game. The Packers opened as 2½-point favorites for the game at Cowboys Stadium. “We made a play to win the game and that’s all that matters,” Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. “Keep playing defense the way we know how, and it’s going to be tough for teams to beat us.” All Jay Cutler could do was watch, having left the game with a knee injury early in the third quarter. Even before the injury, Cutler was having trouble moving the ball. Worse, he was getting booed by the home fans. Primary backup Todd Collins replaced Cutler and was jeered even worse. Then little-known backup Caleb Hanie and the Bears (12-6) actually made it a game. Chicago’s third-string quarterback rallied the Bears for a touchdown drive to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor’s 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Hanie had a chance to tie the game after the Bears’ defense finally got a few stops, but threw a ball straight to Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who lumbered 18 yards into the end zone for a touchdown to give the Packers a 21-7 lead. But Hanie wasn’t finished. He threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Earl Bennett to again cut the lead to seven points with 4:43 left. The Bears forced a punt and got the


concussion. Rodgers has been on a hot streak ever since, and doing it under pressure. The Packers would have been out of the playoffs with a loss in either of their last two regular-season games, including the regular season finale against Chicago. With the Packers leading 14-0 at halftime, Green Bay’s defense forced a three-and-out to begin the second half, and Rodgers went back to marching the Packers down the field. With the Packers poised to put the game away, Rodgers instead tossed the ball to Urlacher on third-and-goal. He took off and ran down the Bears linebacker near midfield, barely preventing him from running it back for a touchdown when he grabbed him. “I don’t think he saw me,” Urlacher said. “He threw it to me — then he tackled me.” Rodgers’ play almost certainly saved a score and might have saved the game. “I don’t get paid to tackle, but that was probably one of my better plays of the game,” Rodgers said. Urlacher, who said earlier in the week that he voted for Rodgers for the Pro Bowl, walked away impressed. “Great quarterback, no doubt about that,” Urlacher said. But after Urlacher’s interception, the Bears couldn’t make anything happen with Collins in for Cutler, and appeared to be headed for a blowout until Hanie took over. Packers players were surprised Cutler didn’t come back. “You know if he doesn’t come back it had to be serious, not to come back and play in this game,” Charles Woodson said.

Game Continued from D1 The Packers opened as 2½-point favorites for the game Feb. 6 at Cowboys Stadium, the spaceship of a stadium that Jerry Jones built to showcase a game as big as all of Texas. That spread sounds about right, based on the classic finishes that have become the norm in a game that used to be anything but Super on the field. Beginning in 2000, when the Rams stopped the Titans a yard short of the tying score as time ran out, six Super Bowls have been decided by a touchdown or less, many of them going right down to the final seconds. The storylines abound in this one, from Ben Roethlisberger turning an offseason of discontent into a year of triumph to Aaron Rodgers leading the sixth-seeded Packers to one big win after another, much like the guy whose shadow he’s left in the dust, Brett Favre. Both teams started strong and held on for dear life to win their conference titles. Pittsburgh was up 24-0 but needed a goal-line stand to finally silence the Jets. The Packers jumped ahead by two touchdowns on the Bears, who nearly pulled it out with third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie leading the comeback. An interception in the final minute sent Green Bay packing for Dallas. “We made a play to win the game and that’s all that matters,” Matthews said. “Keep playing defense the way we know how, and it’s going to be tough for teams to beat us.” Roethlisberger is going for his third title in six years, after sitting out the first four games as punishment for his behavior in a small Georgia college town over the offseason. He was accused of sexually assaulting a young woman, though no charges were filed. His reputation took a beating, however. Having apologized and insisted that he’s a changed man, Big Ben hopes to move him into rarified territory with a third Super Bowl ring. The only quarterbacks who have won more are Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana, each with four. “This one was for Steelers fans,” Roethlisberger said. “I’m really proud of the way you came out and supported us.” Green Bay is known as Titletown USA, but the Packers haven’t won it all since 1997. The people who wear cartoon-looking blocks of cheese on their heads figure that’s long enough, considering the boys of the frozen tundra have won more titles than any other franchise when taking into account what happened before there was a game with Super in the title. The Packers count a dozen NFL titles in all, including the first two Super Bowls in 1967 and ’68 with Vince Lombardi stalking the sideline. That ’97 title, a 14-point romp past the New England Patriots, is the only time Green Bay has hoisted the Vince Lombardi Trophy since then, though. Green Bay hasn’t had much luck in Dallas, either, losing nine straight games since its last win there in 1989. But all of those defeats came against the hometown Cowboys in old Texas Stadium. This is a different time, a different place, a different team. The stakes have never been higher. So break out those Cheeseheads and Terrible Towels. Just be sure to leave the scissors at home.

Jhonattan Vegas holds the trophy after his victory on the second playoff hole of the Bob Hope Classic in La Quinta, Calif., Sunday. Vegas made a 13-foot par putt on the second playoff hole to hold off Gary Woodland for his first PGA Tour victory.

Despite injuries, Blazers keep finding ways to win leadership in the locker room. In November, the team announced that center Greg Oden, the No. 1 draft pick in 2007, would miss the season because of microfracture surgery on his left knee. Oden missed his rookie year because of microfracture surgery on his right knee. Second-year forward Jeff Pendergraph injured his knee in the preseason and required season-ending surgery. And rookie guard Elliot Williams has undergone surgery this season on both knees. “Every time you suit up and you hear a key guy’s not playing, it’s like, ‘Man, what are we going to do now?’ ” LaMarcus Aldridge asked. Aldridge has been one of the reasons the Blazers have weathered all of the injuries. He is averaging 26.9 points and 10.2 rebounds in January and has 21 double-doubles this season. He’s even getting All-Star buzz. The Blazers also were stung in late October when assistant coach Maurice Lucas, the fierce power forward known as “The Enforcer” who helped lead the Portland Trail Blazers to the 1977 NBA title, died of cancer. He was 58. Last season, Portland players missed a combined 311 regularseason games because of injury, second only to the Golden State Warriors and most among playoff teams. Only two players, Miller and former forward Martell Webster, were healthy for all 82 games. The Blazers were hit particularly hard at center, when Oden and Joel Przybilla both suffered season ending injuries in December. But Portland brought in Camby, and the Blazers won a surprising 50 games and made it to the playoffs. This season the group seems to be overachieving again. The Blazers host Sacramento today. “I think a lot of people were counting them out and not talking much about them,” Roy said. “(But) they’re doing a great job of just sticking together and going out there and putting together wins.”

By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

PORTLAND — Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan dreads hearing his phone ring first thing in the morning because it usually means bad news, like another injury. McMillan has had quite a few of those calls, and they haven’t let up since early in the season. It’s gotten so bad that fans have dubbed McMillan’s team the “Frail Blazers.” Portland has been besieged with injuries — particularly knee injuries — since last season. But somehow they’ve managed to win. The Blazers have won five straight, their longest winning streak of the season, to push their record to 25-20 and five games over .500, also a season high. “We’ve got nothing to lose,” Wesley Matthews said Saturday night after the Blazers overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Indiana Pacers 97-92. The latest casualty was starting point guard Andre Miller, who missed the game because of a stomach ailment. The Blazers scrambled, thrusting Matthews and swingman Rudy Fernandez into unaccustomed roles. It capped a rough week for Portland. Three-time All-Star Brandon Roy had arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees on Monday. His return was uncertain, but Roy appeared Saturday night at the Rose Garden and proclaimed he’d like to get back this season. He would, however, follow the advice of the team doctors. “It’s tough sitting out, it’s just tough not doing anything. I just asked ‘Can I jog? Can I do this?’ Not today,” he said. “So I’m just trying to be patient. I don’t like not doing much. Biggest thing is I’m going to ask them everyday but just try to be as patient as I can.” Roy has played in pain this season because of what he says is a lack of cartilage in both knees. He was averaging 16.6 points in 23 games. For his career, the 2007 NBA Rookie of the

Portland Trail Blazers’ LaMarcus Aldridge (12) has had 21 double-doubles this season and is averaging 26.9 points and 10.2 rebounds in January. Year is averaging 19.9 points and 4.9 assists. Last season, Roy had arthroscopic surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee two days before the Blazers opened their first-round playoff series against Phoenix. He made a remarkable comeback and played in the fourth game of the series, which the Suns eventually won. Some have suggested that he returned too soon. On Thursday, center Marcus Camby had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. The team said an MRI was initially clear, but closer examination revealed a partial meniscus tear. The team said Camby could return in three weeks, although that timetable seemed ambitious. Camby, a 6-foot-11 veteran of 15 NBA seasons, was averaging 5.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.87 blocks in 39 games this season, all starts. His absence will be significant not only because of his contribution on the floor, but because of his veteran

Anthony scores 36 for Nuggets in win over Pacers The Associated Press DENVER — Carmelo Anthony gave the home crowd nothing to boo about Sunday night, scoring 36 points in the Denver Nuggets’ 121-107 victory over the Indiana Pacers, who lost their fifth straight. Anthony had been subjected to jeers by the home crowd as trade talk intensified last week, but on this night, the Denver fans showed him plenty of love, especially when he was raining 3s from all over the court as he put on a spectacular 23-point show in the third quarter. Anthony’s career-best six 3-pointers all came in the third period as the Nuggets turned a close game into a laugher — a reversal of their game in November when the Pacers made their first 20 shots of the third quarter and rolled to a 144113 win in Indianapolis. Anthony’s previous high was five 3-pointers back in 2003, his rookie season. Nene added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Nuggets, who led by 25 and improved to 20-5 at the Pepsi Center, where they haven’t lost consecutive games all season. Tyler Hansbrough had 27 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana, which trailed 59-51 at halftime. After a chaotic week in which the New Jersey Nets scuttled talks on a proposed blockbuster trade for Anthony, the weekend was quiet in Denver with no new reports, rumors or revelations in this Melo Drama that began last summer when the All-Star forward refused to sign a $65 million extension through 2014-15. Nuggets coach George Karl acknowledged over the weekend that the drama has weighed on his weary team. “It’s hard. I would say we all realize there’s a little bit of heaviness to getting our jobs done. It doesn’t mean we can’t get it done,” Karl said. “Actually, the performance has been pretty first class. The little things and the details of preparation and details of practice, I see a little heaviness to it.” Karl has dealt with the drama by keeping a sense of humor and harboring an amusing atmosphere when he can. “I think most of the time, we’ve had some levity and some fun with it. When we’ve gotten hit in the head a couple of times, we seem like we’ve communicated through (it) and gotten into a better place,” Karl said. “As I told Chauncey and a few of the guys today, ‘This is going to be an important stretch. This is an important stretch to solidify to everybody that we’re a playoff team and we’re going to figure this out.’ ” The Pepsi Center fans let Anthony have it while he was getting interviewed by the team’s TV network following his 35-point performance against Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, hours after the Nets pulled out of their latest round of trade talks.

Vegas wins Hope Classic in playoff

Denver 121, Indiana 107


The Associated Press LA QUINTA, Calif. — Jhonattan Vegas made a 13-foot par putt on the second playoff hole to win the Bob Hope Classic on Sunday, holding off Gary Woodland for his first PGA Tour victory. The first Venezuelan to win a PGA Tour event, the rookie won in just his fifth tour start despite hitting his tee shot in the water on the 92nd hole of the five-day tournament. Vegas capitalized when Woodland made two poor chip shots, pumping his fist in celebration after his putt fell. “It’s a dream come true,” Vegas said. “It’s something you dream about, but you have to make it happen.” Vegas and Woodland eliminated defending champion Bill Haas with birdies on the first playoff hole after all three finished the final round at 27-under 333. Vegas is the third straight player to get his first PGA Tour victory at the Hope, joining Pat Perez and Haas. Vegas’s victory should give a boost to his desire to revive the sport in his native country, where it’s largely unpopular and criticized by President Hugo Chavez. Playing one group apart, Haas and Vegas both missed short putts on the final regulation hole. A few minutes after Haas botched a 6-footer for birdie, Vegas couldn’t connect from 9 feet, making his only bogey of the final day. Vegas and Woodland closed with 3-under 69s and Haas shot a 66. Ryan Palmer (64) was fourth at 26 under. Woodland and Vegas shared the lead after each of the final three rounds, and Woodland got into the playoff with a birdie on the final regulation hole. The former college basketball player also was seeking his first PGA Tour win. With the light fading rapidly behind the San Jacinto Mountains in the Palm Springs area, Vegas shook his head in dismay after dropping his tee shot in the water on the second playoff hole — but Woodland showed a bigger case of nerves with the win in sight. His approach shot landed in a

Continued from D1 The Cowgirls, who went 8-13 last season, are 7-8 this season and 6-2 against 4A teams. Granted, teams can get better without changing classifications. Crook County’s basketball boys no doubt would have been much improved even if they had remained at Class 5A. But as much as anything, the playing field has been leveled with Madras moving to the 4A Tri-Valley Conference and Crook County competing for playoff berths in the Class 4A Special District against teams from Portland schools Roosevelt and Marshall (although it remains to be seen what will happen to the district next year after Marshall closes). Instead of being the two smallest schools in the Intermountain Conference and two of the smallest schools in all of 5A, Madras and Crook County are now two of the bigger 4A schools in the state. “It’s just so much of a better fit,” Hair says about his school’s move. Five weeks remain in the basketball regular season before the 4A state play-in games determine which teams will advance to the postseason. Class 4A’s regional wrestling tournaments are even sooner. The Cowboys and the White Buffaloes compete in the Class 4A Special District 2 regional wrestling tournament

bunker, and his sand shot trickled to the opposite side of the green. After his drop, Vegas confidently put his exceptional approach shot behind the pin before holing a $900,000 putt. Vegas cut a confident figure on the Palmer Private course earlier Sunday, wearing a neon-peach shirt with starkly white pants and Nike hat. He was followed by his father, who got his son into the game while selling food and tending a nine-hole course in a remote oil-drilling camp along the Orinoco River. Also on Sunday: Kaymer wins Abu Dhabi by eight strokes ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — Martin Kaymer overtook Tiger Woods for the No. 2 ranking in the world, winning the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship by eight strokes. The German star, the PGA Championship winner last year, finished with a 6-under 66 for a 24under 264 total. He successfully defended his title, winning the event for the third time in four years. Rory McIlroy (69) was second and Retief Goosen (64) and Graeme McDowell (67) tied for third, 10 strokes behind Kaymer. Phil Mickelson tied for 37th at 5 under after a 70. Cook wins Champions Tour season opener KAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii — John Cook birdied five straight holes after the turn to win the Champions Tour’s season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship, shooting a second straight 8-under 64 for a two-stroke victory over Tom Lehman. The 53-year-old Cook had eight birdies in his bogey-free round for a 22-under 194 total and his second straight victory. He finished last season with a successful title defense in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. After two birdies on the front side, Cook scorched the back nine, dropping putt after putt. He birdied six holes during a seven-hole stretch to take home $305,000 and the hook-shaped trophy.

on Feb. 18 and 19 in Ontario. Local athletes among finalists for Oregon Sports Awards Central Oregonians Ashton Eaton, Kellie Schueler and Kassi Conditt have been named finalists for the 2010 Oregon Sports Awards. Eaton, a graduate of Mountain View High School, is one of five finalists for the Bill Hayward Amateur Athlete of the Year award for males. A 2010 Olympic hopeful, Eaton capped off his stellar track and field career at the University of Oregon by winning the heptathlon at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships before recording his third consecutive NCAA decathlon national championship in June. Schueler, a 2010 Summit High graduate, is one of eight finalists for the Johnny Carpenter Prep Athlete of the Year award for Class 6A and 5A females. Currently a freshman track athlete at Stanford University, Schueler concluded her prep career with four titles at the 2010 Class 5A state track championships, giving her 16 state track titles for her career. Conditt is also up for a prep honor, the Johnny Carpenter Prep Athlete of the Year award for Class 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A females. A 2010 graduate of La Pine High School, Conditt led the Hawks to a third-place finish at the 2010

Class 4A girls state basketball tournament and was named the 4A player of the year. Now a freshman basketball player at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls, Conditt also took second in the shot put and fifth in the discus at the 2010 4A state track and field championships. Cowgirls volleyball coach wins regional award Crook County volleyball coach Rosie Honl was named the National Federation of State High School Associations’ Section 8 2010 volleyball coach of the year. Representing the Northwest part of the country, Section 8 is made up of schools from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. Last fall, Honl guided the Cowgirls to their fifth consecutive state championship, as Crook County became the first Oregon high school to win more than four volleyball state titles in a row.

Distance: 30 miles Elevation gain: 1,500 feet Surface conditions: Excellent, with only short sections of chip seal; road shoulders are nonexistent but unnecessary in most places. Description: Mostly flat terrain with a few punchy rollers and a long descent on Belmont Lane back to Madras. Ride boasts photo-worthy vistas and scenic diversity as it meanders through wide-open farm country before flanking the Deschutes River Canyon. Once on Mountain View Drive, riders encounter numerous opportunities to pull off and gaze at the majestic canyon and Deschutes River below. With a start/finish elevation of 2,200 feet, this is an ideal fall/winter/spring ride; temperatures are typically several degrees warmer here than at higher points in the region. As with most rides in Central Oregon, this loop can be made challenging in breezy conditions. Highlights: Clean and incredibly quiet country roads; the road surface is smooth and the Cascade mountain and Deschutes River canyon views are stunning. Lowlights: The ride intersects both U.S. Highway 26 and U.S. Highway 97, which require extreme caution when crossing. Water and food: Available at the start/finish in Madras. Water is also available at Round Butte Overlook Park, a nice spot from which to take in views of the canyon, look for eagles, or enjoy a lunch break. Start/finish: Riders can begin from any point on the loop. In Madras, start from Sahalee Park, located on Seventh Street between B Street and C Street. Public restrooms are available at the park. Another option is to begin and end the loop at Great Earth Natural Foods (46 S.W. D St.), where riders can fuel up with a pre- or post-ride sandwich and cup of coffee. Other ride options: Cyclists looking for a longer effort and more climbing can add a 10-mile side trip on Elk Drive to Pelton Park and back. Riders can refuel on snacks at the store near the park, but be prepared for a strenuous climb back to Belmont Drive. —Heather Clark

I B  Cyclocross • Bend’s Trebon withdraws from world championships: Professional cyclist Ryan Trebon will not compete at the 2011 cyclocross world championships in St. Wendel, Germany, later this month. VeloNews Magazine reported last week that the Bend rider has withdrawn from the race due to an extended illness. Trebon, 29, was one of five American cyclists named to the U.S. elite men’s team earlier this month. Trebon told VeloNews that he had been ill for a period of nine days and had felt nauseous with “zero energyâ€? during recent training rides in California. This year would have marked Trebon’s fifth appearance at the cyclocross world championships. The two-time national champion

finished second in the elite men’s race at the recent 2010 national championships held in Bend in December.

Armstrong mum on drug report By Steve McMorran The Associated Press

ADELAIDE, Australia — Lance Armstrong accepted a gift on stage and thanked the cheering fans for an “unbelievable event.� But after finishing 67th Sunday in what he says is his final race outside the United States, Armstrong again had nothing to say about the latest round of drug allegations. The seven-time Tour de France champion rode in the back half of the main pack for most of the last stage of the Tour Down Under. He crossed the line as the 103rd rider and wound up more than six minutes behind overall winner Cameron Meyer. Armstrong brushed past reporters without addressing questions raised by Sports Illustrated — a matter he has refused to discuss all week. His exit from international cycling comes amid comments by his former mechanic Mike Adams, who told a New Zealand newspaper that a U.S. federal investigation into Armstrong’s alleged involvement in doping

James Knowler / The Associated Press

Lance Armstrong during the final stage of the Tour Down Under cycling event at Adelaide, Australia, on Sunday. could make him a “symbol for decades of corruption� in the sport. Adams was cited in the SI article and said he has spoken with

Jeff Novitzky, the Food and Drug Administration agent who is investigating this case. Adams accused Armstrong and his associates of consistently misrepresenting their record on banned drugs. The 39-year-old Texan has repeatedly denied using such substances. “We hear the same lies over and over again and they become truth,� Adams told the Sunday Star-Times. Adams contends he once found a box labeled “Andro� in Armstrong’s house — a term used to describe androstenedione, a banned steroid. “To be honest when I finally realized what was going on it was very troubling to me because Lance was my friend,� Adams said. “When I had my hand forced and had to say ‘I know what’s going on’ it was like telling a bunch of kids there’s no such thing as Santa Claus.� On Sunday, Armstrong tweeted that the Tour Down Under “is done. Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting such a great race. Adelaide, we’re gonna miss ya.�

ages 14 to 22; some racing experience is preferred. The camp includes road-racing and groupriding skills development, and workshops on racing, training, nutrition, sports psychology and bike maintenance. A questionand-answer session with professional riders is also on tap. The Oregon camp is one of nine junior development camps across the country that serve as talent identifiers for USA Cycling. Cost is $700 per rider, and the fee includes meals and lodging. Grants and scholarships are available, and registration is expected to open in February.

Restrictions Continued from D1 Instead, he said he expects a colleague to propose an amendment that would turn HB 2228 into a study bill — one that would attempt to gather actual data regarding the safety records of child bicycle trailers, seats and tagalongs. Taking steps to make kids safer on bikes is a proposal cyclists can get behind. A spokesman from Burley, a builder of bicycle trailers since 1978, told me the Eugene company would embrace higher safety standards among bicycle trailer manufacturers. Garrett Barnum, product and marketing manager for Burley, said the company already meets or exceeds ASTM (American Society of Testing and Material) standards on frame integrity, safety harness tests and frame crush tests for all its models. Barnum noted that these safety standards are voluntary and are not required by law for bicycle trailer manufacturers. “It’s a good thing to talk about safety standards for children,� said Barnum. “It would be great if (higher safety standards were) made law, so it would make sure that everybody got safe trailers. We’re all about the discussion, and would be happy to be involved in a study.� The bill that might gain more traction in the Oregon Legislature is HB 2602, the measure that would ban cyclists from wearing headphones. My repeated recent calls and e-mails to Schaufler, the bill’s sponsor, were not returned, but he told the Portland weekly newspaper Willamette Week last week that his bill is a common-sense measure designed to protect cyclists. “I think it makes sense not to have sound pumped into your ears while you’re riding a bicycle,� Schaufler said. But many local cyclists see the ban as a government intrusion into personal freedom. Seth Gehman, of Bend, routinely listens to music during his daily bicycle commute. “I personally don’t feel that headphones decrease my ability to ride safely,� Gehman said. “I mean, everywhere I drive I have music playing in my car, and it doesn’t seem to make me a worse driver. My headphones don’t make the sounds around me disappear. I still hear the cars and I just make sure to really examine my surroundings before I make critical moves in traffic.� Nick Braun, also of Bend,

“I personally don’t feel that headphones decrease my ability to ride safely. I mean, everywhere I drive I have music playing in my car, and it doesn’t seem to make me a worse driver.� — Bend cyclist Seth Gehman is freeride coordinator for the Central Oregon Trail Alliance and can be found riding Central Oregon singletrack most days of the week, he said. Braun enjoys listening to music while riding at the Lair, on the Slalom Play Loop, or on one-way trails such as Whoops — all rides in the Phil’s Trail system. But he said he prefers to “keep my ears open� when riding on the road or on two-way trails. “You need to hear what’s going on around you and in your environment,� he said. Braun added, however, that he believes listening to music while cycling should be a personal choice. “There is no way to control that you can listen here, and not listen there,� he said. “I’d rather see it left up to rider choice.� Jonathan Manton, the newly appointed Central Oregon representative to the statewide Bicycle Transportation Alliance, agrees with Braun. He told me last week that he believes both bills — 2228 and 2602 — are well-intended but go too far. “The intent is to make the roadways safe for all users, and that is a goal we certainly share,� said Manton, a Bend resident. “Criminalizing riding a bike with headphones — that seems like unwanted government intrusion to me.� Manton went on to say that it is not time to panic, but he noted that cycling enthusiasts should let their legislators know how they feel about both of the proposed measures. “A lot of folks in the bicycling community made their voices heard right away, and that was really beneficial,� Manton said. “It helped to get the legislators to see that the issue affects a lot of people. I credit the bicycling community for being so quick to respond.� Heather Clark can be reached at cyclingcentral@bendbulletin. com.
