Oregon kids cavity-prone Dentists say state’s lack of fluoridated water is partly to blame
By Kate Ramsayer The Bulletin
With the Oregon Legislature set to consider whether to renew about 20 tax credits that offer companies and individuals a break on everything from making movies in the state to producing biomass, some in Central Oregon are expressing their support for programs that focus on energy efficiency and alternative energy. The Business Energy Tax Credit program, or BETC, is designed to help people invest in renewable energy, energy efficiency and recycling. In the next budget cycle, the cost of the credits is estimated to be $38 million. By the 2015 session, the credits are estimated to increase to $250 million. And the program has drawn criticism in the media and from lawmakers because of large subsidies to wind farms and other businesses. But the program has been key in helping some smaller builders across the state, including Central Oregon, adopt new energy-efficiency technologies, said Bruce Sullivan, a green building consultant with Earth Advantage in Bend. Renewable energy projects like installing solar hot water heaters can be economical over the life of the device, he said, when people compare the cost with what they save on energy bills over time. But often, that upfront cost is just too much of a barrier, Sullivan said. See Credits / A4

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fluoridating the water supply is the single most effective public health intervention for preventing cavities in children. Oregon, which ranked seventh worst in the nation in terms of untreated cavities among third-graders, had the third lowest percentage of residents with access to fluoridated water.

regon has been one of the more progressive states in terms of securing medical care for its children. But when it comes to dental health, the state lags behind most of the nation. Oregon ranks seventh worst in terms of the percentage of thirdgraders with untreated tooth decay (at 35.4 percent) among 37 states that submitted data to the National Oral Health Surveillance Survey through 2008. The Oregon Smile Survey, last conducted in 2007, found that two-thirds of kids in third grade had had at least one cavity, a worse showing than all but six other states, including the neighboring states of Washington, Idaho, California and Alaska. “Oregon does have one of the highest decay rates in the nation, and part of it is just in general, we don’t have fluoride in our water,” said Dr. Rex Gibson, a pediatric dentist in Bend. “I realize that’s a controversial subject for a lot of people, but there are volumes of studies that show that it reduced cavities across the board by 60 percent.” Some 27 percent of Oregonians live in areas with fluoridated water. Only two states, Hawaii and New Jersey, have a lower percentage of residents with fluoridated water. Oregon has a long history of debating water fluoridation, but the last major push to fluoridate water failed in the state Legislature in 2007. With a sizable chunk of the population concerned about either the safety of fluoride or government-mandated health interventions, public health officials and dental experts have been forced to consider other ways to lower the high rate of cavities and the financial and emotional costs associated with them.

Taliban’s shadow government Wealthy donors is yet another foe in Afghanistan want a bigger voice in Catholic schools By C.J. Chivers
U.S. soldiers question an Afghan elder during a raid in the village of Alu Khel, Afghanistan.
New York Times News Service
FORWARD OPERATING BASE ANDAR, Afghanistan — Midway through December, Afghan police officers arrested a man who had hidden a fake bomb near a government office in Miri, a village in eastern Afghanistan. The man, who gave the name Muhammad Mir, confessed, saying he wanted to gauge the security force’s reactions to a Taliban attack, according to U.S. intelligence officials. A paper found in his pocket, though, proved more significant than evidence of the Taliban’s reconnaissance. It was handwritten in Pashto, and when translated, it revealed a tax-collection

Private philanthropists have changed the face of public education over the last decade, underwriting the rise of charter schools and promoting remedies that rely heavily on student testing and teacher evaluation. But with much less fanfare, wealthy donors have begun playing a parallel role in the country’s next-largest educational network: Roman Catholic schools. In New York — as in Boston, Baltimore and Chicago — shrinking enrollment and rising school deficits in recent years have deepened the church’s dependence on its cadres of longtime benefactors. Donors have responded generously, but many who were once content to write checks and attend student pageants are now asking to see school budgets, student reading scores and principals’ job evaluations.

Shinya Iwamatsu, president of Bookscan, from left, talks with Yusuke Ohki and Tsuyoshi Fujita, both company directors, at Bookscan’s headquarters in Tokyo. Japan’s cramped living conditions and the arrival of the iPad have created a brisk business in turning paper books into e-books.
Demand for e-books fuels rise in scanning companies By Pavel Alpeyev and Yoshinori Eki Bloomberg News
TOKYO — Yusuke Ohki’s 2,000 books were crowding out his Tokyo apartment, so he scanned them all into an Apple iPad. Six months later, the 28year-old is running a 120-person startup doing the same thing for customers. Japan’s cramped living conditions and the arrival of the iPad in May have spawned as many as 60 companies offering to turn paper books into e-books as publishers have been slow to provide content for new electronic readers. Japan has lagged behind the U.S. in introducing e-books because of a rigid pricing system, uncertainty over copyrights and early problems reproducing Japanese characters on screens, said Toshihiro Takagi, an analyst at market researcher Impress R&D in Tokyo. “People are taking matters in their own hands because the publishers are not meeting the market’s needs,” he said.
Tapping the demand Japan’s $24 billion market for books and magazines, the world’s largest, may see an explosion in e-books as Samsung Electronics’s Galaxy Tab tablet computer and readers by Sharp Corp. and Sony Corp. take on the iPad. Sales of e-books in the country will probably more than double in the next three years to $1.9 billion, according to Tokyobased Yano Research Institute. Ohki and rivals including Denshika.com and Scan Honpo are tapping that demand. Ohki founded Bookscan with childhood friend Shinya Iwamatsu in April, converting books into PDF files that can be read on the iPad, iPhone, Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook. The company charges 100 yen per book for a service called “jisui,” or “cooking for oneself.” “The homemade e-book market will continue to exist as long as the copyright situation isn’t dealt with and people cannot find books they want in electronic format,” said Masashi Ueno, a researcher at Yano Research Institute. “In Japan, copyright agreements vary depending on the author, meaning a publisher could serialize a comic book but may or may not have the rights to
“People are taking matters in their own hands because the publishers are not meeting the market’s needs.” — Toshihiro Takagi, analyst at market researcher Impress R&D in Tokyo
publish it as a separate book.” Japan’s copyright laws permit users to digitize protected works for personal and family use, according to Seichi Higuchi, the secretary general of Japan Book Publishers Association. Reproduction of a purchased work by a third party requires publisher’s permission, Higuchi said. Bookscan requires customers to tick a box to say they have this permission. “There are more than 30 or 40 scanning companies and a huge amount of books are scanned every day, so I can hardly believe all the scanning is legal,” Higuchi said in an interview in Tokyo last month. “The pressure is building on the publishing industry to meet consumer needs before these homemade contents begin to circulate illegally,” said Nobuo Kurahashi, an analyst at Mizuho Financial Group in Tokyo. “This is a sign of latent demand.”
Impact of iPad Japanese will buy $815 million worth of e-books in the fiscal year ending March 31, most of it comics for mobile phones, Ueno said. Electronic books were equivalent to 8.7 percent of the $4 billion market for paper print in the U.S. in the first 10 months of 2010, Association of American Publishers said in December. Sales of e-books in the country are set to almost triple to $2.8 billion by 2015, according to Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass. Sales of iPads and web-based document storage services such as Evernote and Dropbox have helped spur the cottage industry. “The iPad’s release is the biggest factor in making this business possible,” Ohki said. The Tokyo-based company in July
bought industrial scanners to reduce the four-month wait faced by its more than 12,000 customers, he said. Sales of consumer scanners at PFU rose 80 percent in June and more than doubled the following month because of the iPad’s release, according to Tadashi Oura, the head of marketing for imaging products at the company. The Tokyo-based subsidiary of Fujitsu chartered flights to rush the devices from its factories in China to meet the spike in demand, Oura said.
Lack of content, low demand Japanese buyers of Amazon’s Kindle reader are redirected to the company’s U.S. site since no Japanese-language titles are available. Lack of content and low demand forced Tokyo- based Sony to stop selling e-readers in its home market in 2007. Osakabased Panasonic gave up in 2008. Sony, which resumed Japan sales of its e-readers in December, formed a venture last year with mobile-phone operator KDDI Corp., Asahi Shimbun Publishing Corp. and Toppan Printing Co. to provide electronic publications. The group will take on an e-book alliance of NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s largest wireless carrier, and Dai Nippon Printing Co. “We are at year zero for ebooks in Japan,” Toshihiro Konno, who heads the venture between Sony, KDDI, Asahi and Toppan, said at a briefing in December. Konno estimates Japanese will buy about 780,000 e-readers and $1 billion worth of content in the year to March 31. Meanwhile, customers are turning to scanners to make room in a country where average living space per person is about 398 square feet, or almost half that in the U.S., according to real estate service provider Mitsui Fudosan Co. Satoshi Tagomori, 28, who works for a pharmaceutical company in Kyushu, southwestern Japan, had his books scanned to make room for his newborn child, cutting the space occupied by books in his 50-square meter apartment by about 75 percent. “There was just no more room for books when my son was born,” Satoshi said in a phone interview. “Plus, I was worried about the shelves falling over.”
Survey finds users take risks at Wi-Fi hot spots By Wailin Wong Chicago Tribune
CHICAGO — U.S. consumers love Wi-Fi access but don’t always have safe habits when they visit hot spots, according to a new survey by industry group Wi-Fi Alliance. The survey polled 1,054 Americans over the age of 18 through online interviews. The results showed that 32 percent had tried to use a Wi-Fi network that wasn’t their own during the past 12 months, up from 18 percent in

December 2008. But when asked whether sharing a Wi-Fi network password or a house key required more trust, 40 percent of survey participants chose the former. “We do feel like we’re at a point where ... people are using a lot of Wi-Fi and doing more with Wi-Fi, Kelly Davis-Felner, marketing director for Wi-Fi Alliance. “The average household might have a couple of notebooks, a tablet, a smart phone, gaming devices or advanced digital home (devices)
like set-top boxes all connecting via a Wi-Fi network.” According to Wi-Fi Alliance, about 201 million households use Wi-Fi networks, and there are about 750,000 hot spots worldwide. Davis-Felner said consumers should set strong passwords for their wireless networks by changing the default password. Web surfers should also take safeguards when they use public hot spots, most of which haven’t turned on security protections.
SAN FRANCISCO — EBay was growing so fast early in its history that Meg Whitman, its former chief executive, liked to joke that “a monkey could drive this train.” John Donahoe, her successor, still has the company on the track, but eBay’s competitors are moving a whole lot faster. Three years into the job, Donahoe has made only modest progress in improving growth at the online retailer. He has given the website a cosmetic makeover and recast it as an outlet mall where retailers can unload last season’s merchandise, instead of being an all-encompassing auction house. “I think we’re turning a corner,” he said last week. But while eBay’s marketplace revenue grew 8 percent to $5.7 billion last year, eBay is still losing market share to its rivals, as global e-commerce sales increased 18.9 percent in 2010. Amazon.com widened its lead last year while Groupon, the daily deal service, and a number of specialty retailing sites like Etsy began nipping at eBay’s heels.
‘On the offensive’ Donahoe said he plans to tell Wall Street securities analysts Thursday at the company’s analyst day that eBay can now “go on the offensive” by building on its early momentum with mobile shoppers and that it will better integrate sister products like PayPal. EBay’s troubles were a long time coming. The company managed to annoy many of the people who sold goods on eBay and those who bought them. Buyers complained of clutter, irrelevant search results and fraud. Sellers grumbled about what they saw as excessive fees
and eBay’s favoritism of big retailers over small merchants. Growth in sales volume, the value of merchandise that changed hands on the site, started to flatten in 2006. After the recession began, the volume declined — even though eBay used to brag that it thrived in tough times because users emptied their closets and attics for extra cash.
A custom look After countless tweaks, eBay’s marketplace website now has a noticeably cleaner design to keep buyers focused on the merchandise. Donahoe also invested in improving eBay’s search engine so users can better sort through its more than 200 million products. Giving various product categories a custom look, rather than a generic design, is another way eBay is trying to compete. EBay thinks users shop differently depending on the kind of product they are looking for, and catering to that translates into more sales. Despite all the effort going into sprucing up eBay’s marketplace, half a dozen buyers and sellers interviewed recently did not notice any cosmetic changes. But they cited a few other upgrades that they said made buying and selling easier. James Chen, owner of Audio Images, an audio equipment store in San Francisco, said he stopped selling on eBay because of excessive fees around three years ago. But in December, he returned to selling on eBay and discovered that it automatically suggested product descriptions — a feature introduced last year — so that he did not have to write them himself. “I’m very happy with things,” Chen said. “Buyers are just buying.”

T S CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Obama aims to reconnect with U.S. businesses By Peter Wallsten and Zachary A. Goldfarb The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — The White House’s campaign to rebuild ties with corporate America gets the ultimate photo opportunity today when President Obama crosses Lafayette Park and steps into the imposing headquarters of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The gesture may surprise Americans who recall that Obama, just four months ago, said the group may have used foreign money to air ads attacking Democrats, or that a senior aide called the Chamber’s political tactics a “threat to our democracy.” And the applause certain to fill the Chamber building might seem jarring given the tens of millions of dollars the group spent to fight Obama’s signature health care overhaul and deliver the House majority to the Republicans. Both sides are eager to show a new era of warm feelings, with the Chamber in need of bipartisan bona fides and Obama seeking credibility with centrist voters and corporate donors as he ramps up his reelection campaign. But today is also likely to show that tensions remain close to the surface. Obama, even as he calls for cooperation on issues such as revamping the corporate tax code, passing a South Korea free trade deal and fixing the nation’s schools, will reiterate his defense of the new restrictions on insurance companies that make up the core of the health care law that the Chamber wants repealed. And he will implore corporations to spend profits that many are stockpiling. Previewing his Chamber remarks in his Saturday radio address, Obama said he will tell company executives that they have an “obligation” to “hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation.” Chamber officials, meanwhile, say that they still expect their campaign spending next year to exceed the group’s $50 million budget of 2010. They say their organization does not get involved in presidential politics. If spending follows the 2010 model, however, it will go almost entirely toward helping the GOP extend its House margin and possibly win control of the Senate. “The Chamber’s going to continue to make judgments on an issue-by-issue basis on what we think is best for the business community, and we’re not going to make trade-offs based on feel-good opportunities,” said Thomas Collamore, a Chamber spokesman.
Disney looks to the cradle in quest to expand business By Brooks Barnes New York Times News Service
LOS ANGELES — The Walt Disney Co. has started an ambitious and risky march toward the one corner of childhood it does not already dominate: newborns. Late last month, the company quietly began pressing its newest priority, Disney Baby, in 580 maternity hospitals in the United States. A representative visits a new mother and offers a free Disney Cuddly Bodysuit, a variation of the classic Onesie. In bedside demonstrations, the bilingual representatives extol
the product’s bells and whistles — extra soft! durable! better sizing! — and ask mothers to sign up for e-mail alerts from DisneyBaby .com. More than 200,000 bodysuits will be given away by May, when Amazon.com is set to begin selling 85 styles for a starting price of $9.99 for two; Nordstrom and Target will follow with more Disney Baby items, including hats. “If ever there was an opportunity for a trusted brand to enter a market and provide a better product and experience, it’s this,” said Robert Iger, chief executive of Disney.
The endeavor dances close to a flame. Disney has suffered harsh criticism in recent years over products directed at the very young. The fiercest battle has involved Baby Einstein, the Disneyowned maker of “developmental and entertainment” videos and toys for babies and toddlers. The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, a nonprofit organization, claimed victory in 2009 when Disney, apparently acknowledging that the products did not turn babies into geniuses after all, offered some Baby Einstein refunds.
But Disney has moved on. In this new venture, the company gains access to the maternity hospitals through a company called Our365, a business that sells bedside baby pictures. Our365 pays hospitals for exclusive access, and companies like Disney pay Our365 to promote their own products. Our365 also has Fisher-Price and Procter & Gamble as clients. It is unclear whether mothers know of Our365’s financial ties to these companies. Disney estimates the North American baby market, including staples like formula, to be
worth $36.3 billion annually. Its executives talk about tapping into that jackpot as if they were waging a war. “Apparel is only a beachhead,” said Andy Mooney, chairman of Disney Consumer Products.

Chet Hibbard, owner of EW Moore and Son Pharmacy, in Bingham, Maine, stopped carrying the highly addictive painkiller OxyContin last July after two robbers in ski goggles demanded it at knifepoint. More than 1,800 pharmacy robberies have taken place across the U.S. over the last three years, usually by young white men seeking opiate painkillers, including OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Percocet.
Pharmacies besieged by robbers seeking drugs By Abby Goodnough New York Times News Service
BINGHAM, Maine — The orange signs posted throughout Chet Hibbard’s pharmacy here relay a blunt warning: We Do Not Stock OxyContin. Hibbard stopped dispensing the highly addictive painkiller last July, when two robbers in ski goggles demanded it at knifepoint one afternoon as shocked customers looked on. It was one of a rash of armed robberies at Maine drug stores in 2010, a sharp increase that has rattled pharmacists and put the police on high alert. “I want people to know before they even get in the door that we don’t have it,” Hibbard said of OxyContin, which the authorities say is the most common target of pharmacy robberies here. “Outside of hiring an armed guard to be in here 24/7, I don’t know what else to do.”
Prevention tactics Maine’s problem is especially stark, but it is hardly the only state dealing with pharmacy robberies, one of the more jarring effects of the prescription drug abuse epidemic that has left drug stores borrowing some heist prevention tactics from the more traditional targets, banks. In at least one case,
“I want people to know before they even get in the door that we don’t have it (OxyContin). Outside of hiring an armed guard to be in here 24/7, I don’t know what else to do.” — Chet Hibbard, owner of EW Moore and Son Pharmacy
a tiny tracking device affixed to a bottle let the police easily track a thief after a robbery. More than 1,800 pharmacy robberies have taken place nationally over the last three years, typically conducted by young men seeking opioid painkillers and other drugs to sell or feed their own addictions. The most common targets are oxycodone (the main ingredient in OxyContin), hydrocodone (the main ingredient in Vicodin) and Xanax. The robbers are brazen and desperate. In Rockland, Maine, one wielded a machete as he leapt over a pharmacy counter to snatch the painkiller oxycodone. In Satellite Beach, Fla., a robber
threatened a pharmacist with a cordless drill last week, and in North Highlands, Calif., a holdup last summer led to a shootout that left a pharmacy worker dead.
Customers buzzed in The crime wave has spurred pharmacists to tighten security measures and add ones they may never have imagined in the past. Many have upgraded their surveillance cameras; some have installed bulletproof glass and counters high enough to keep would-be robbers from jumping them, giving these pharmacies the aesthetic of an urban liquor store. In Tulsa, Okla., where there was a steep increase in drug store robberies last year, at least one pharmacist now requires customers to be buzzed in the door. Meanwhile, the police are quietly experimenting with new tools. In Lewiston, Maine, last fall, a Rite Aid pharmacist handed a robber who threatened to shoot her five bottles of OxyContin, including one that contained a tracking device. According to court records, the device led the police to the suspect’s home on a rural road shortly after he fled the store. They gathered evidence, arrested the suspect a few days later and indicted him last month.
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Two men angry over a dispute at an Ohio fraternity house party left the gathering and returned Sunday, spraying bullets into a crowd and killing a Youngstown State University student who was trying to separate two groups, authorities said. Eleven other people were injured, including a 17-year-old with a critical head wound. The men were arrested and charged later Sunday with aggravated murder, shooting into a house and 11 counts of felonious assault, Youngstown police Chief Jimmy Hughes said.

Sri Lanka floods displace more than 1 million people McClatchy-Tribune News Service COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — More than a million people have been displaced by flooding in north-central and northeastern Sri Lanka, officials said Sunday, as monsoon rains fell for the sixth consecutive day. The floods were widespread and were affecting roads, agricultural land and town centers, the Disaster Management Center said. The center said Sunday that it had confirmed eight deaths and that two other people were missing. Many areas remained inaccessible, so the full extent of the damage was not yet known,
the center said. More than 250,000 displaced people were reported to be living in government camps. Others had been taken in by friends and relatives or had found refuge in other buildings, including temples. The government has mobilized navy boats and air force helicopters to help rescue marooned residents, mostly in the hard-hit north-central districts of Anuradhapura and Polonnaurwa and in Trincomalee, northeast of the capital, Colombo. Flooding in the same areas last month killed 43 and displaced 1.1 million people.

Egypt Continued from A1 Ezz’s world has come undone. He is treated as a liability by an old guard intent on saving itself from fed-up and furious protesters. He is under investigation on suspicion of corruption. His assets have been frozen and his right to travel taken away. He has denied allegations of corruption in the past, and his location was not known Sunday. Now his name is part of the derisive chants in Tahrir Square, a symbol of all that was wrong with Mubarak’s government.
“Ahmed Ezz sucks the blood of the people,” said Osama Mohamed Afifi, a student who joined the protesters in the square on Sunday. Hosni Mubarak’s Egypt has long functioned as a state where wealth bought political power and political power bought great wealth. While facts are difficult to come by, Egyptians watching the rise of a moneyed class widely believe that self-dealing, crony capitalism and corruption are endemic, represented by a group of rich businessmen aligned with Gamal Mubarak, the president’s son, as well as government ministers and ruling party members.
C OV ER S T OR I ES “The people around Gamal became the wealthiest group in the country,” said Hala Mustafa, a political scientist who had quit the ruling party years ago saying it was not committed to political reform. Now, Ezz and other officials “are being offered up to the public” as scapegoats, said Samer Shehata, an assistant professor of Arab politics at Georgetown who has interviewed Ezz. “The NDP is a group of individual and financial interests masquerading as a political organization,” he added. “There’s little difference between Ahmed Ezz and Gamal Mubarak.”
Donors Continued from A1 In the jargon of education reform, they want transparency and accountability; and though the church bureaucracy has resisted similar demands from other constituents in the past, the donors are getting pretty much what they want. To the delight of some educators and the discomfort of others, major contributors have won a voice in decisionmaking at every level, from the staffing of the schools to the frank financial self-examination that has nudged the Archdiocese of New York toward the most severe school consolidation in its history. Church officials announced last month that falling enrollments and rising deficits would force them to close 27 schools, one-tenth of their total, by the end of this academic year. “The relationship between the church and its contributors used to be basically, ‘Pray, pay and obey — give us money, we’ll take it from there,’” said Francis Butler, president of Foundations and Donors Interested in Catholic Activities, a national network of Catholic philanthropies. “But donors are much more proactive today. They are concerned about the quality of the schools, the leadership; they’re drilling down into these problems.”

An Egyptian protester sleeps on the wheels of a tank at Tahrir Square in Cairo on Sunday. Egypt’s vice president met with a broad representation of major opposition groups for the first time Sunday and agreed to allow freedom of the press and to release those detained since anti-government protests began.
In a first, Mubarak’s aides meet with the opposition By David D. Kirkpatrick and David E. Sanger New York Times News Service
CAIRO — Leaders of the Egyptian democracy movement vowed Sunday to escalate their pressure for the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak even as his government portrayed itself as already in the midst of U.S.-approved negotiations to end the uprising. The government announced that the transition had begun with a historic meeting between Vice President Omar Suleiman and two representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood, the outlawed Islamist group the Egyptian government has sought to repress for many years as a threat to stability. They met as part of a group of about 50 prominent Egyptians and opposition figures, including officials of the small, recognized opposition parties, as well as a handful of young people who helped start the protest movement. While both sides acknowledged the meeting as unprecedented, its significance became another skirmish in the battle between the president and the protesters. Suleiman released a statement — widely reported on state TV and instantly a focal point in Washington — declaring that the meeting had produced a “con-
Credits Continued from A1 “The tax credits make it possible for people to overcome that first cost obstacle,” he said. It helps builders he works with go beyond basic energy-efficiency standards, he said, and build highly energy-efficient homes. Builders are able to get up to $12,000 in tax credits for adding things like a renewable energy system and high insulation levels. “One of the key recipients of the BETC has been Bend Habitat for Humanity, who (is) using those credits to put solar systems on their Habitat homes,” Sullivan said. He noted that the homeowners are seeing $5 energy bills with the improvements. The purpose of the tax credits isn’t to pay for all of the energy-efficiency features of a home, he said, but to pay for enough to get people’s attention and provide an incentive for them to move forward. “The whole purpose of this is to get a few builders to adopt these things so all the builders will see what a great thing it is,” Sullivan said, “and it pulls them gently into the future.” While some critics might object to the cost of the tax credits,
Egyptians line up as banks reopen Hundreds of Egyptians queued outside banks to withdraw funds as lenders opened for the first time in more than a week Sunday amid protests demanding the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. At a Cairo-based branch of Commercial International Bank Egypt, one man stood at the main door taking names of customers. “Banks need to open more branches,” said Mahmoud Eliwa, a 68-year-old retiree who left after learning he needed to wait for about 100 people before him. The central bank moved 5 billion pounds ($854 million) of cash into the financial system as depositors gained access to their savings. — Bloomberg News sensus” about a path to reform, including the promise to form a committee to recommend constitutional changes by early March. The other elements echoed pledges Mubarak had already made, including a limit on how many
he said, in the long run conserving energy means that fewer power plants need to be built to keep up with demand. Whether the programs and projects supported by the BETC are worth the tax dollars is something for the Legislature to wrestle with, said Mike Riley, executive director of the Environmental Center in Bend.
Part of Bend 2030 But energy efficiency and renewable energy are important issues to Central Oregon residents, he said, noting that those issues came up multiple times in the Bend 2030 planning process. “There’s clearly been problems with the program, but I don’t think you throw the baby out with the bath water,” he said. “We learn from that and go forward.” Michael Scannell, with Woodcraft Building in Bend, is applying for the High Performance Home program that is a part of the BETC. With the tax credits and other incentives, he would probably save around $10,000, he said, because he will include things like a double wall and dense insulation as well as a solar hot water heater. It’s a spec home, he said, so he’s
terms a president can serve. Leaders of the protest movement denounced Suleiman’s portrayal of the meeting as a political ploy intended to suggest that some in their ranks were collaborating. Though the movement has only a loose leadership, it has coalesced around a unified set of demands, centered on Mubarak’s resignation, but also including the dissolution of one-party rule and revamping the constitution that protected it, and Suleiman gave no ground on any of those demands. “We did not come out with results,” said Mohamed Morsy, a Brotherhood leader who attended, while others explained that the Brotherhood had attended only to reiterate its demands and show openness to dialogue. The standoff over the meeting underscored the conflicting narratives about the next chapter of the revolt that has shaken Egypt and the wider Arab world. More than 100,000 turned out again on Sunday in the capital’s central Tahrir Square — more than expected as the work week resumed here. And some of the movement’s young organizers, who were busy meeting to organize their many small groups into a unified structure, said they were considering more large-scale demonstrations in other cities.
hoping people will be willing to pay a little bit more for an energyefficient home. And the BETC helps pay for the energy upgrades, he said — he couldn’t afford to do them without the credits. “I think that’s the future, and if you’re not building that way, eventually I think you’re going to be falling behind,” Scannell said. At SolAire Homebuilders in Bend, the company was able to install a solar hot water heater and photovoltaic panels on its Bend headquarters, said Cindi O’Neil, vice president of sales and marketing. And because the major renewable energy additions were not part of the appraisal, the company could not get a loan for them, she said. “The incentives that we received from the Business Energy Tax Credit were very helpful in defraying the cost,” she said. Keeping the BETC would also help create green jobs, she said, for people who sell and install solar panels, wind turbines, highefficiency heating and cooling systems, and more. “These are great jobs, and they’re green jobs,” O’Neil said.

At Our Lady Queen of Angels School in New York, a Wall Street financier, Charles Durkin, and a small group of fellow benefactors have donated a total of roughly $100,000 a year for about 15 years. Until about five years ago, the extent of their involvement was to visit several times each year and shake hands with grateful children, as Durkin, 72, did one recent morning. Yet the next day, Durkin followed up with a long working meeting, poring over test scores and talking with the principal about the progress she was making with the students.
Ruby Washington / New York Times News Service
Charles Durkin, a Wall Street financier, talks with Joanne Walsh, principal of Our Lady Queen of Angels School, during a school visit in New York City last month. When they were done, the two agreed that teachers might need some coaching in math instruction — and Durkin agreed to pay for it. The principal of Our Lady Queen of Angels, Joanne Walsh, has embraced what she calls the contributors’ “financial and moral support.” However, her predecessor, Roman Pitio, who contends he was replaced about five years ago at a benefactor’s urging “because our test scores weren’t going up,” described the relationship between donors and educators as “a bit of a Faustian bargain.” “I had these guys walk through the building once and tell me, ‘Get rid of this teacher,’” Pitio said. “I mean, maybe they mean well, but they’re from another world.” Durkin and several hundred other wealthy contributors, most of them from Wall Street, have long been a quiet but essential part of the New York archdiocesan schools. By various estimates, their donations and scholarships total $15 million to $20 million annually — nearly matching the $23 million the archdiocese provides in subsidies to all of its 270 schools. Russell Carson, a billionaire venture capitalist who has been a major contributor for more than a decade, said that donors’ demands for more information were based on an emerging desire to “make sure we were getting a good return” on a sizable investment.
‘Venture philanthropy’ Experts say the donors’ increasing assertiveness is partly a reflection of a new ethos in giving of all types. “The new thing is ‘venture philanthropy,’ where you apply the principles of venture capitalism to achieving the goals of philanthropy,” said Diane Ravitch, a New York University professor and author of “The Death and Life of the Great American School System.” “The mentality of Wall Street favors consolidation and downsizing,” she said. “The sense of the larger mission can get lost.” Catherine Hickey, who was superintendent of the archdiocesan school system from 1988 to 2007, said she was always grateful for donors’ financial help. “But at the same time,” she added, “these are very strong-willed people, used to making decisions and used to having their way. At times, the decisions they wanted us to make were based on good business judgment, but not necessarily on sound educational principles.”

Cavities Continued from A1 “That 2007 Smile Survey was a shocker and a sobering report for us in dentistry in Oregon,” said Dr. Gordon Empey, an oral health consultant with Oregon’s Department of Human Services. “It prompted us to do a number of things and pay attention to oral health.”
Late start Oregon didn’t even have a formal oral health program within its public health division until 2005, and Empey says that kept the state from implementing the type of community-based prevention programs that can reduce cavity rates. Most county health departments in the state lack the staffing and resources to tackle dental health issues, leaving large swaths of the state without the infrastructure to implement such programs. The state’s de facto dental health program has been an uncoordinated hodgepodge of state and community efforts that at best target only a small portion of children in the state. Children’s dental health is left to the responsibility of individual parents, who often themselves are unaware or unconcerned with how to prevent cavities and maintain good oral health. The state’s taxpayers end up footing the bill for many of those cavities and the expensive restorative work that follows, costs that could be reduced by investing in preventive care and dental hygiene education efforts. With no organized way to reach parents of younger children, most interventions have used the infrastructure of the school system, providing elementary school students with preventive measures such as sealants or fluoride tablets. Providing sealants — clear plastic coatings applied to back teeth to protect the pits and fissures where plaque is likely to grow but hard to remove — is the second highest-rated, evidencebased practice recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Task Force on Community Prevention. Last year in Oregon, dental hygienists visited 140 schools to apply sealants, and state officials are now trying to partner with communities to make sealants available in more schools. Many schools also participate in a fluoride tablet program in which students are given chewable tablets every morning. Those tablets can make up for a lack of water fluoridation but are not used universally, and there’s a lag time before they show any effect. “The fluoride tablets are not designed to prevent cavities in current teeth. They’re designed to add ingredients to teeth as they are growing and developing,” Gibson said. “Does it prevent cavities? Yes. But only in future teeth.” That means many kids will develop multiple cavities well before school age. Some children have so many cavities at an early age, dentists cannot treat them in a normal office setting. “There are 2-year-olds who have a cavity in every single tooth, and they’re not going to sit for treatment in the clinic, so we take them to the hospital and we put them under and fix all their teeth,” said Dr. Steve Christensen, a pediatric dentist in Bend. “And I extract a lot of them, too, because they’re just beyond repair.” It’s one of the reasons water fluoridation is such an effective tool for addressing dental issues across the entire population. Virtually everyone will get a dose from the water consumed or used in cooking. According to the American Dental Association, water fluoridation provides the highest bang for the buck, saving $38 for every $1 spent. Christensen said water fluoridation wouldn’t be necessary, however, if everybody took the proper preventive steps, adequately cleaning teeth and visiting a dentist for preventive care. “Eighty percent of the cavities are in 20 percent of the population, and that 20 percent of the population are the people who are on Medicaid and on welfare. They’re the lowest socioeconomic population because they’re not educated. That’s the population that’s going to benefit most from fluoride and sealants,” Christensen said. “Some days we have all the rich moms from Awbrey Butte bringing their kids in, and we won’t see a cavity all day. In La Pine and Prineville, they have all the cavities.” That income-based disparity was borne out in the 2007 Smile Survey. In schools where more than 75 percent of students qualified for free or reduced lunches, a proxy for low-income status, children were twice as likely to
have untreated decay as kids in schools with less than 25 percent qualifying, and significantly less likely to have seen a dentist in the past year. Dental health experts are trying to move interventions further upstream to help prevent cavities in younger children. The state recently implemented its First Tooth program, which aims to enlist pediatricians to help educate parents about dental health. Parents typically bring children in for well-child visits in the first year of life, but won’t bring them in to see a dentist until much later. Some children don’t see a dentists at all unless they’re experiencing a problem. “Just directing parents to come in for a dental checkup when their kid is around a year, a year and a half old is so empowering,” Gibson said. “Because I can start educating those parents so at least they know what’s going on. If we don’t see a kid until they’re 3 or older, there’s a high likelihood those kids are going to have cavities.” Area dentists are also reaching out to moms clubs in the region to help parents learn how to maximize their children’s dental health and teach them good hygiene. “I tell moms the best thing you can do for you child to be at low risk for cavities is take care of your own teeth,” Christensen said. Children are born with a fairly mild form of the bacteria that causes cavities. More aggressive forms of the bacteria are passed on from mother to child through direct contact, such as kissing children on the lips or cleaning off a pacifier by putting in it their mouths. Interventions that target pregnant women have proven successful in reducing cavities in their kids. Even simply educating new or expecting mothers on dental hygiene could pay huge dividends. Dr. Blair Struble, a Bend orthodontist, regularly visits elementary schools to teach kids about proper oral hygiene in kidfriendly language. “You’d be amazed at how many don’t know what a dentist is or have never been to the dentist,”
“Eighty percent of the cavities are in 20 percent of the population, and that 20 percent of the population are the people who are on Medicaid and on welfare. ... That’s the population that’s going to benefit most from fluoride and sealants.” — Dr. Steve Christensen, pediatric dentist in Bend she said. “When you give them floss, they just go crazy.”
Concerns about access It’s likely that many have not seen dentists because they have no insurance and can’t afford the cost. The 2007 Smile Survey in Oregon found that only 59 percent of lower-income children had seen a dentist in the past year, compared with 85 percent of higher-income children. And nationwide, twice as many people lack dental insurance as health insurance. With last year’s expansion of the Oregon Health Plan as well as the addition of the Healthy Kids program that offers affordable coverage for children who don’t qualify for OHP, the state has extended medical and dental insurance to nearly all kids in Oregon. But there are concerns about whether the supply of dentists is sufficient to meet the new demand. “I’ve advocated since that was implemented that as a state, we need to come together and take a look at the issue of access to care,” Empey said. “If, in fact, we’re going to cover more and more children — or all the children, for that matter — and we are having trouble with access currently for dental services, what does that mean for going forward?” Gibson said he receives calls every week from parents with children that need immediate care, but their assigned OHP dentists can’t get them in for several weeks. Many dentists serving OHP kids will limit the number they can see each week because of the low rates paid by the program. “Everybody wants to see dentists as altruistic, and as a pediatric dentist my heart goes out to the kids,” Gibson said. “On the
other side of it, I have employees that do want their paycheck. I have to be able to at least make enough on that side of it to cover expenses.” In 2008, OHP, which is Oregon’s Medicaid plan, reimbursed dentists at 46 percent of median fees charged by dentists. That could be why in the previous year, only 35 percent of kids on OHP received any dental care, compared with 58 percent of kids with private dental insurance. “It’s challenging because our reimbursement rates are very low,” said Christina Swartz, public and professional education coordinator for the Oregon Dental Association. “A lot of our dentists will actually accept OHP patients, and because of the paperwork and the problems they encounter, they end up giving free care instead of trying to go through the system to be reimbursed for a fourth of the overhead of what it actually costs to treat the patient.” Other states have turned to a new type of dental provider, sometimes called dental therapists, who can provide much of the primary care dental work under the supervision of a dentist. They’re akin to midlevel medical providers such as physician assistants or nurse practitioners. Oral health experts in Oregon are currently exploring that model of provider as well in hopes of improving access to care for OHP patients. “Organized dentistry is resisting that,” Empey said. “I think we’re going to have to go through a decade or so of having that discussion, similar to what medicine did with their midlevel provider situation a few years ago before they’re accepted and utilized in connection with improving access. That is a growing trend, and I don’t think we can stop it.”

THE BULLETIN • Monday, February 7, 2011 A5 But dentists argue there’s sufficient provider capacity now to treat all the kids on OHP, particularly if OHP paid better rates and reduced the paperwork burden. “Putting a midlevel provider out there is not going to change a thing, because there are enough people out there who are willing to donate their time and do the work. It’s not a matter of providers, it’s a problem of educating families to make it a priority,” Struble said. “We can patch the filling, but if parents never see it as a priority, we’re still just chasing a moving target.” Other states have made a concerted effort to encourage dentists to take more Medicaid patients by raising rates and streamlining the administrative process. Tennessee and Alabama both doubled the rate of children being seen by dentists in just four years after overhauling their Medicaid programs.
“A losing battle” “As a dental community, we are doing what we can, but it would be great if we had more assistance from the county or the state or the federal level,” Gibson said. “We’re fighting a losing battle. It’s not something a group of dentists are going to be able to cure or solve.” Oregon officials are hoping the next Smile Survey in 2012 will show they’ve started to make some progress. The state scored worse on almost every measure in 2007 than it had in 2002. But it takes time to build stronger teeth, better hygiene habits and public awareness. It may take another generation of school kids before Oregon can rise above its dental doldrums. “In terms of the disease rates, I wouldn’t expect us to turn the corner on that for another five to 10 years as we implement more of these prevention programs and work on dental access,” Empey said. “If we can hold the line and stop the increase (in the 2012 survey), I think we can be optimistic.” Markian Hawryluk can be reached at 541-617-7814 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Missionary’s killing rattles nerves along Texas border By James C. McKinley Jr. New York Times News Service
PHARR, Texas — Mexico has always had a reputation here as a place where things can go wrong in a hurry. But the fatal shooting of a Texas missionary across the border late last month has reinforced the widely held belief in this region that the country has become a lawless war zone. The missionary, Nancy Davis, 59, who had worked in Mexico for decades, was shot in the back of the head by robbers in a pickup truck who had pursued her and her husband for miles in Tamaulipas state. Her husband, Samuel Davis, piloted his bullet-ridden truck across the two-mile international bridge here, driving pell-mell against traffic on the wrong side of the bridge to evade the pursuers and reach a U.S. hospital. He arrived on the U.S. side too late to save her. State Department officials say that 79 U.S. citizens were murdered in Mexico in 2009, and that at least 60 were killed last year from January to November, though an official annual figure has yet to be compiled. The numbers have been rising since 2007, when 38 U.S. citizens were murdered in Mexico, State Department records show. The heaviest toll is in El Paso, where many residents cross the border regularly to conduct business or visit family. In early November, for instance, four U.S. citizens were killed in separate crimes over one weekend. All were ambushed and shot to death while visiting Ciudad Juarez, which has become one of the most murderous cities in the world.

Afghanistan Continued from A1 The scrap in Mir’s pocket, hinting at both boldness and organization, became one part of a gradually expanding portrait of how the Taliban has organized and fought its guerrilla war in a corner of rural Afghanistan.
Underground network The picture is of an underground government by local fighters, organized under the Taliban’s banner, who have established the rudiments of a civilian administration to complement their shadowy combat force. They run schools, collect taxes and adjudicate civil disputes in Islamic courts. And when they fight, their gunmen and bomb makers are aided by an intelligence and support network that includes villagers, who signal for them and provide them shelter, and tunnels in which to elude capture or find medical care. As part of the Obama administration’s campaign to subdue a sprawling insurgency and create a durable Afghan government, the military sent thousands of soldiers last year into rural areas under the influence, if not outright control, of the Taliban. One of those task forces, the 3rd Battalion of the 187th Infantry Regiment, arrived in Miri in September to help establish a government presence in a place — though it is the official seat of the Ghazni province’s Andar District — where government had been sporadic for a decade. Almost five months later — through prisoner interrogations, informants’ reports, intercepted radio chatter, surveillance of fighters’ funerals, Taliban documents, nearly 200 gunfights, and captured photographs, equipment and bombs — the Americans have begun to understand how the latter-day Taliban functions here.
Shadow government The analysis outlines two distinct elements of Taliban structure: a quasi government and the military arm that empowers it. On one level, the Taliban has firmly re-established its hold over civilian life in rural Ghazni. Even with a U.S. battalion patrolling Andar and the neighboring Deh Yak District each day, the Taliban runs 28 known schools;

Musician keeps a tradition alive By Borzou Daragahi Los Angeles Times
KABUL, Afghanistan — The master sits in a newly painted house on Kharabat Street, in the oldest quarter of this ancient city. He plies his craft with his fingers, palms and wrists, beating, tapping and scraping the oiled surface of his drums as if he were listening to the secret pulse of the universe. “Tabla has its own notes,” Asif Mahmoud says. “It speaks to us. It speaks from my heart. When I play tabla, I open my heart to listeners.” The 63-year-old Mahmoud keeps alive an ancient flame, an authentic Afghan culture that has managed to survive decades of war, grinding poverty and religious extremists.
Historic music quarter Few pay much attention to Mahmoud or to Kharabat Street, but it was once among the most storied places in Central Asia. More than a century and a half ago, the Afghan monarch Emir Sher Ali Khan established the area as Kabul’s music quarter. Artists, musicians, composers and instrument makers flocked here, living in mud-brick houses with courtyards. Indian tradesman lived nearby, giving the area a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Mahmoud began studying music when he was 8 and was quickly recognized as a prodigy. He won a scholarship to study in India, but returned to Kharabat just before Afghanistan’s major troubles began in the 1970s. The musicians back then tried hard to tone down Kharabat’s reputation to make it more palatable to pious Islamic tastes. circulates public statements by leaflets at night; adjudicates land, water rights and property disputes through religious courts; levies taxes on residents; and punishes Afghans labeled as collaborators. “There are tangible indicators that a shadow government does exist and has been strong for the past two or three years,” said 1st Lt.

Asif Mahmoud plays the tabla at his home in Kabul, Afghanistan. Then the 1980 Soviet invasion plunged much of the nation into a series of overlapping wars. But Moscow’s Communist elite were keen to be seen as promoters of Afghan culture. Mahmoud was flown several times to perform in Russia. After the Soviets left, the Moscow-backed government of President Najibullah was also kind to musicians, bestowing gifts of flutes to the people of Kharabat. But dark days were coming.
heading to Britain, where he lived for 18 years. In London, he performed concerts and was celebrated in newspapers such as the Guardian and the Evening Standard. When he finally returned to Kharabat in 2003, it lay in ruins. Homes had been looted, squatters lived in makeshift encampments and wild dogs roamed the alleys. But Mahmoud sought to rebuild his old life and began performing on radio and TV. He acknowledges that he could be earning a lot more money and living a more comfortable life closer to his family in London. But he feels extraordinary here. When he walks through the streets, people know him. And the dozen or so accomplished musicians and many more students trickling back to Kharabat acknowledge him deferentially as the “ustad,” the master of his trade, and kiss his hand out of respect.
Master of his trade Kharabat had long been viewed suspiciously by pious Afghans who forbade their children to study music. Najibullah’s fall unleashed the fury of the Islamists. Once the mujahedeen dislodged him, “we lost everything,” Mahmoud says. He fled to India, where he stayed for two years before task force’s assistant intelligence officer. On another level, the Taliban fights. Task force analysts estimate that the Taliban can field roughly 400 fighters in Andar and Deh Yak, which have a combined population of perhaps 150,000 people. The fighters harass Afghan and U.S. forces and pursue a campaign of intimidation against
residents who cooperate with, or even acknowledge, the central government. Dressing as civilians, they battle Western forces with a familiar script: using small ambushes and makeshift bombs with minimal risk and conducting the occasional rocket or mortar attack. They also have a support network, the officers said, of at least 4,000 civilians.
W B Thai-Cambodian border clashes resume PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Machine-gun and artillery fire echoed across the frontier between Thailand and Cambodia today as their troops clashed near an 11th-century temple in the fourth day of fighting that has killed at least five people. Cambodian government spokesman Phay Siphan said skirmishes began again early today after halting around midnight. The crumbling stone temple, several hundred feet from Thailand’s eastern border with Cambodia, has fueled nationalism on both sides of the disputed frontier for decades and conflict over it has sparked sporadic, brief battles in recent years. However, sustained fighting has been rare. Cambodian officials say Thai artillery collapsed part of a wall Sunday at the Preah Vihear temple, a U.N. World Heritage site, but Thai officials have dismissed that account as propaganda, and the extent of damage is unknown.

Only two of the Americans, Joshua Fattal and Shane Bauer, both 28, appeared in court Sunday.

WikiLeaks workers are creating an alternative website for leaks to be governed by what they characterize as a revised vision of radical transparency. The new organization, OpenLeaks, will begin work in earnest this summer, said Herbert Snorrason, an Icelandic programmer who is involved. It aims, he said, to avoid the “influence of a single figurehead” by refusing to handle documents itself. Instead, it will act as a neutral conduit to connect leakers with media and human rights organizations.

Bend conference Police capture runaway teen from Eugene discovered near to highlight justice, Minor local hotel after ditching stolen vehicle human rights issues By Erik Hidle The Bulletin
By Megan Kehoe The Bulletin
A conference discussing justice and human rights will be held at the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend this Friday and Saturday. “We thought it would be a really good idea to motivate and hopefully inspire people to think about their neighbors,” said Matthew Smith, creative director with World Relief in Bend. “It’s really a great opportunity for education.” As many as 900 people are expected to attend the two-day conference sponsored by World Relief, with partners like Bend’s Kilns College, a theology school, and many other organizations. The conference will feature 12 speakers and will be attended by 55 organizations across the country.
Notable speakers Speakers at the conference will include Yale Professor Nicholas Wolterstorff, Berkeley professor and author Adam Hochschild, and World Relief Congo Church Mobilization Director Marcel Serubungo. Speakers will also include the president of Kilns College, Ken Wytsma. Speakers will discuss the history of human rights, poverty, human trafficking, AIDS, development and disaster response, among other issues, and how to get involved and help. “The crazy thing is that the ma-

vehicle into a building after police attempted to pull him over around 9 p.m. Saturday night along Southwest Mill View Way. A Bend police officer recognized the dark blue 1995 Chevrolet truck from a stolen vehicle report filed on Feb. 4. The truck was unique because it was raised and had aftermarket
bumpers, Kindel said. When the officer turned on his siren, the minor drove the vehicle into the parking lot of Bryant, Lovlien & Jarvis law firm. The minor then exited the vehicle while it was still running, resulting a low-speed crash. The truck crashed into a post supporting an awning at the law firm building and the teen ran toward the AmeriTel Inn with officers in pursuit. Kindel said it took “about 15 minutes” for police to find the
boy in a lot near the inn. “He lost his shoe during the chase and was found hiding near the AmeriTel building,” Kindel said. “He literally jumped out of the vehicle as it was running and let the vehicle roll into the building. We had a few dogs dispatched, but an officer quickly found him.” An unidentified passenger, who police were unable to apprehend, also fled the scene toward the river. See Chase / B2
LINING UP FOR ROLLER DERBY
Visitors from afar Smith added that the reason he thinks people are visiting from all over the country for the event is because it’s a unique event. “There’s not really a lot of conferences like it out there,” said Smith. “I’ve been doing relief and missionary work for seven years, and I’ve never actually come across a conference of this nature.” Tickets for the preconference session, which will feature four breakout sessions and three speakers, will cost $25 per ticket. For groups of six people or more, the tickets cost $15. For students, the preconference events cost $10. The main conference on Friday evening and Saturday will cost $119 if purchased in advance, or $129 at the door. See Conference / B2
CENTRAL OREGON WEATHER
More clear days on the way this week By E rik Hidl e The Bulletin
Few clouds over Central Oregon this week means warmer daytime temperatures and cooler nights. Rob Brooks, a National Weather Service forecaster in Pendleton, said people in the area can expect temperatures to remain similar to what they have been in recent weeks as daytime temperatures should remain in or near the 40s and nights fall into the 20s. “You’ll be looking at warmer daytime highs because there are
no clouds,” Brooks said. “But because those clouds aren’t there to trap in the heat, the lows will dip lower.” Today is expected to be a bit cooler with an expected high of 39 degrees and a nighttime low of 23. Strong winds are expected today and Tuesday reaching up to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. There is also a small chance of snow today and Tuesday for folks looking to make it up to the mountain.

Skaters line up at the Lava City Roller Dolls Junior Roller Derby League practice held at Cascade Indoor Sports in Bend on Sunday afternoon.
very Sunday afternoon at Cascade Indoor Sports, nearly 50 girls ages 6 to 17 gather on roller skates to push, shove and block each other as part of Central Oregon’s Junior Roller Derby League. The girls and organizers admit the process can perplex outsiders. But beneath the stereotypes of roller derby are young girls growing up, learning to work as a team, communicating with each other and making new friends. The Lava City Roller Dolls, one of Bend’s two roller derby leagues, started the junior league just two months ago with the goal of developing young girls’ athleticism, teamwork and above all else, their confidence. Jana Washatka, 42, of Bend, who goes by “Toosh Come to Shove” in the Lava City Roller Dolls adult league, is director of the junior program. She said the program is crucial to the development of their league as well as to the development of the girls. “They are the future of the derby,” Washatka said. “We’re teaching them to skate smart, to work as a team, to develop skills that work beyond roller derby.” Last summer, the Roller Dolls started a series of youth camps to gauge the interest of young girls in the community.

Participants in the Lava City Roller Dolls Junior Roller Derby League speed around a corner at Cascade Indoor Sports in Bend on Sunday afternoon.
Derby Continued from B1 They had more than 50 girls come out for each event. The courses taught the girls to skate, the rules of the league and the culture of roller derby, which Washatka says is far more athletic and competitive than the theatrical roller derby of old. But beyond the sport is the development of the young skaters. Classes on nutrition and selfimage are introduced between drills on jumping in skates and positional blocking. “I notice that with roller derby a young woman’s self-image improves,” said Washatka. “We are a sport. We are competitive. But we are a positive group. No one out here says ‘I can’t’ because these girls can.” Washatka’s daughter, 16year-old Aidan, competes in the league and says her favorite part of the process is being part of a community. “It’s like a family out here,” said the younger Washatka, who goes by the name “Scarlett Johanslam” in the derby. “Just meeting all the people is the best part. You hip check someone one day and the next you are friends. Aidan Washatka said she is also meeting girls from outside of Bend High School, where she is a student. “I wouldn’t otherwise know some of these girls,” she said. “It’s really nice to meet new people out here. It’s really the best part.”
Selene Schafer, 13, of Bend, left, does her best to control her balance and deal with pushes from Savannah King, 13, of Redmond, during practice.
Samantha Bogue, 14 from Bend and going by the name “Briar Thorne” in the derby, said she considers the skating rink a place for her to be a little bit different than what people would expect. “I tell people I do this, and they say to me that it doesn’t seem like me at all,” Bogue said. “I’m proud of that.” Samantha Bogue’s mother, Monica Bogue, said she was grateful to the league for giving
her daughter a chance to grow. “She was shy before this,” Monica Bogue said. “She’s a straight-A student who is actually very quiet. When she saw this, she asked to get involved, and I thought it might be a good thing. It’s been a great thing.” Before she began skating, Samantha asked her grandmother if she could take the money her “nana” had promised her for violin lessons and, instead, use it for the derby.
Her grandmother said as long as she didn’t get a tattoo then she could take part. One of her first purchases was a pair of gold tights. “I would never wear that to school,” Samantha Bogue said. “It’s like having an alter ego here.” Her mother, inspired by her daughter’s interest, also joined the derby in the adult league. Monica Bogue, 41, of Bend, is known as “Dirty Jo” in the rink. She said the sport has made her more athletic and also, closer to her daughter. “We stay for each other’s practices, we can skate together and we go to the bouts together,” Monica Bogue said. “It’s something that she does, and when she talks to me about it, she knows that I get it. That’s a great part of this. Sharing it with her.” The league is accepting new girls as part of a rolling intake process in a few months.

O Plan calls for owl ‘removal’ Officials propose culling barred owls in effort to save spotted owls The Associated Press PORTLAND — Federal wildlife officials looking to protect the spotted owl will likely recommend shooting the endangered species’ biggest threat — a larger, more aggressive type of owl — according to a newspaper report. Along with habitat loss, barred owls are the biggest threat to spotted owls, which are federally protected. That sets up a wrenching decision splitting wildlife biologists and environmentalists. “There’s no winner in that debate,” said Bob Sallinger, conservation director with the Portland Audubon Society. A draft environmental impact statement to be ready by summer most likely will recommend shooting the larger owls, according to The Oregonian. Over the next year, 1,200 to 1,500 barred owls in three or more study areas from Washington to Northern California might be killed under the plan. The 2010 spotted owl recovery plan, to be released in mid-February, concluded “barred owl removal should be initiated as soon as possible.” A Fish and Wildlife Service group was drafting a parallel environmental impact statement on killing barred owls. The plan has its opponents. “Population dynamics between two native species should not be artificially manipulated,” said Blake Murden, wildlife and fisheries director for Port Blakely Tree Farms in Tumwater, Wash. The company agreed in 2009 to manage 45,000 acres as spotted owl habitat in exchange for pro-

Federal wildlife officials are considering a plan to kill the larger barred owl in an effort to save endangered spotted owls. tection from additional logging restrictions. Murden said the population of barred owls expanded rapidly because they adapt well to mixed habitat and eat a variety of prey. Spotted owls, on the other hand, prefer old-growth to nest and
mostly eat flying squirrels. The spotted owl is a conservation icon. Its 1990 listing as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act was the first to have such broad economic, social and environmental impact.
Lawmakers to consider proposal to make schools energy efficient By Jonathan J. Cooper The Associated Press
SALEM — One of Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber’s top environmental and economic priorities will get its first hearing in the Legislature today. The House Education Committee will take a first look at Kitzhaber’s plan to put people to work by retrofitting schools and other public buildings with modern energy-efficient technology. Supporters of his plan hope to protect the environment while helping schools save money on their energy costs. House Bill 2888 would authorize the state to sell bonds that would pay for loans and matching grants for school districts that want money to improve their facilities. The bill leaves many details to be decided, including the cost. The sponsor, Rep. Jefferson Smith, D-Portland, cautioned that the measure is merely a “placeholder bill” intended to begin work on the concept. The long-term goal, Smith said, is to retrofit every public school in Oregon along with other government buildings, but this year’s bill would not reach that far. “We spend a lot of dough on energy costs in Oregon,” Smith
IN THE LEGISLATURE said. “If we can save a little of that dough ... that seems really smart.” Smith said the weatherization concept is about more than just creating jobs or saving on energy costs. He said the bill would bring cleaner air and more light into schools, creating a healthier learning environment for students and workplace for teachers. Rep. John Huffman, a Republican from The Dalles and member of the Education Committee, said he’s an advocate of weatherization who has done it at his own properties. He said he’ll be looking for a proposal that produces enough savings to justify the expensive upfront cost of weatherizing a school. “I’m not an advocate of just throwing money at a project just to get some people to work,” Huffman said. “But if we can make fiscal sense of this ... I’ll go for it.” Kitzhaber last month directed the Department of Energy to use $2 million of leftover federal stimulus dollars to conduct energy audits on 500 schools. He said

then that the money would create 20 new jobs and lay the foundation for his plan by determining what schools needed. Kitzhaber spokesman Tim Raphael said the governor wants lawmakers to come up with a plan in time for construction crews to work during the schools’ summer vacations. “We are excited to see the Legislature take this up so quickly and look forward to working with them on the best school retrofit bill possible,” Raphael said. Oregon’s unemployment rate was 10.6 percent in December, an improvement from the Great Recession’s bottom of 11.6 percent in May and June of 2009, but still 1.2 points worse than the national unemployment rate. Joblessness has been particularly acute in Central and Southern Oregon, where many rural communities have struggled with unemployment since the decline of the once-mighty timber industry. The committee will also consider a bill today that would require all new school construction and remodel projects to meet environmental standards equivalent to the LEED Silver designation from standards developed by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

Owl habitat and prey in Oregon and Washington are quite different, said Lowell Diller, a biologist with Green Diamond Resource Co., which owns 400,000 acres of timber adjacent to Redwood National Park. He said choosing to control barred owl population is one of the biggest conservation dilemmas the Northwest faces. “We have a huge amount of resources committed to protecting that species,” Diller said. “Then we have the barred owl show up.” Douglas County Commissioner Doug Robertson called the proposal to shoot barred owls an example of “dysfunctional” forest policy. Counties like his depend economically on federal timber, which Robertson said is managed to benefit a species that can’t be recovered. “When nature takes a turn, it’s going to prevail no matter what we try to do,” he said. “I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s nonsense to shoot one species to benefit another. I don’t think the public will accept it.” Logging reductions undoubtedly saved habitat, but the bird itself hasn’t shown signs of recovering. Spotted owl population estimates are vague, but studies indicated it declines 3 percent annually in much of its range. Some scientists estimate that a couple thousand mating pairs remain. “We certainly don’t want barred owls killed, but the highest priority has to be placed on not having spotted owls go extinct,” said Sallinger, with the Portland Audubon Society. He argued logging weakened spotted owls to the point barred owls could expand rapidly. Amending habitat loss is the first step in rebalancing the playing field, he said. “Going out and killing barred owls, if you haven’t taken the other necessary steps, would be really horrific.”
O B 2 teens swept into ocean, drown
Homicide investigation in Salem man’s death
YACHATS — The Oregon State Police says two teens died after waves swept them off a rocky outcropping and into the ocean. Lt. Gregg Hastings said the body of 18-year-old Connor Gregory Ausland was found and that authorities have yet to find 17-year-old Jack Harnsongkram. Both were students at South Eugene High School. Hastings said the two boys were from Eugene and were with friends visiting the area near Smelt Sands State Park in Lincoln County when they were swept away Saturday afternoon. Police believe the two boys drowned.
SALEM — Marion County sheriff’s officers say they are interviewing a person of interest in a homicide at a home east of Salem. No arrests have been made, and the Salem Statesman Journal reports that deputies haven’t identified the victim. Sheriff’s Cmdr. Kevin Schultz said the case is being investigated as a homicide. A neighbor told the newspaper that he found the victim shortly before noon Saturday surrounded by blood in the living room of a mobile home. The paper quotes a neighbor as saying one deputy drew a gun and approached a nearby residence, and after that deputies took away a man.
Cottage Grove-area man shot to death COTTAGE GROVE — The Lane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a 50year-old man was fatally shot southeast of Cottage Grove. The Register-Guard reported deputies responded to a call of a shooting at a home at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, and found the victim in the driveway. Authorities said the victim was David E. Kalal. Deputies said an initial investigation suggests an altercation between Kalal and another person led to the shooting. They say Kalal and the other person, whose name wasn’t released, have separate residences on the same property.

Bend-La Pine’s middle school conundrum
Bend-La Pine School District committee has been tinkering with middle school attendance areas for a couple of months now, largely under the radar. But that’s
bound to change in a big way soon. Driving the process is the need to shrink the district’s biggest middle school, Cascade, which is more than 100 students over capacity. To that end, the attendance-area committee considered and rejected a number of options, including the transformation of the Westside Village facility into a satellite campus for Cascade sixth-graders. But the committee eventually gravitated toward a handful of possible boundary changes that would steer some elementary school kids in Cascade’s existing attendance area to another school when they reach middle school. Now comes the tough part: Deciding which kids should switch and which school or schools should take them. Though the committee continues to look for more options, the four front-runners at this point involve students at Pine Ridge Elementary School and High Lakes Elementary School. Under the first two scenarios, Pine Ridge students would go to Pilot Butte Middle School. Under the third, High Lakes students who live north of Portland Avenue would attend Pilot Butte. And under the fourth, High Lakes kids north of Portland would attend Sky View Middle School. The fact that three of these four scenarios involve Pilot Butte Middle School isn’t surprising. With roughly 620 students in a facility that can handle 850, Pilot Butte needs an influx of students as badly as Cascade needs an exodus. But Pilot Butte isn’t exactly the queen of the middle school prom. Bend-La Pine parents are allowed to request school transfers, regardless of where they actually live. As a result, most of the district’s middle schools serve students who live outside of their own attendance areas. While Cascade, High Desert and Sky View accept more out-of-area students than they lose, Pilot Butte loses significantly more students than it takes in, according to numbers provided at a January committee meeting. There are likely to be many reasons so many parents within Pilot Butte’s attendance area transfer their kids elsewhere, most of which may be beyond the district’s control. But whatever those reasons are, the district’s numbers speak for themselves. A strikingly large number of families in Pilot Butte’s area want to send their kids to a different school, even though there’s plenty of elbow room at home. And Cascade takes in more students than it loses, even though it’s bursting at the seams. None of this is going to be lost on Pine Ridge or High Lakes families designated for middle school reassignment. The district could cut Pilot Butte out of the equation entirely, as contemplated in the option that would send some High Lakes kids to Sky View. But the district’s estimates suggest that doing this will simply transfer the overcrowding problem to Sky
View within a few years and leave Pilot Butte just as conspicuously under capacity. Talk about ignoring the elephant in the room. What’s a well-intentioned school district to do? Assuming officials are determined to move a large chunk of would-be Cascade students to Pilot Butte, as seems inevitable at this point, the district ought to do two things: Create programs at Pilot Butte that will appeal to students who’ve transferred elsewhere and appeal to those on their way in, and — just as importantly — communicate its intention to do so clearly to everyone who’d be affected. Unfortunately, Pilot Butte is poised to take a step in the opposite direction. The district announced recently that a science and math block for TAG (talented and gifted) students will be scrapped next year. Too many ambitious, non-TAG kids have been signing up and, as the district explains it, effectively “tracking” the school. Meanwhile, Cascade has no problem allowing non-TAG kids to participate in its advanced humanities block. Given what this discrepancy suggests about the two schools’ relative commitment to academic achievement, why wouldn’t the parents of eager, non-TAG kids worry about a potential reassignment from Cascade to Pilot Butte? The district could simply flex its boundary-setting muscle and tell affected Pine Ridge or High Lakes families to live with its decision. But many unsatisfied families are likely to respond by taking advantage of the district’s open school-transfer policy. “Philosophically,” says Deputy Superintendent John Rexford, “we have tried to honor student and family choices as much as we can,” and that isn’t likely to change. In fact, Rexford pointed to this policy during last week’s boundary committee meeting as a mechanism that could even out school-attendance numbers in a way the district would like. One of the Pine Ridge-to-Pilot Butte options would send too many kids to Pilot Butte and too few to Cascade by 2013. This is theoretically a problem, said Rexford, but many of the kids at Pilot Butte will simply transfer right back to Cascade, leaving school populations more or less where the district would like them. This same phenomenon could just as easily shift school populations in a way the district doesn’t like. So, as long as the district allows families to move their kids to the schools of their choice — in other words, to engage in a kind of districtwide “tracking” — administrators should give people powerful incentives to stay put. Even if that means holding on to TAG classes that — gasp! — serve a large number of non-TAG students.
Uprisings and the quest for dignity
wonder if sometime around 50 years ago a great mental tide began to sweep across the world. Before the tide, people saw themselves in certain fixed places in the social order. They accepted opinions from trusted authorities. As the tide swept through, they began to see themselves differently. They felt they should express their own views, and these views deserved respect. They mentally bumped themselves up to first class and had a different set of expectations of how they should be treated. Treatment that had once seemed normal now felt like an insult. They began to march for responsive government and democracy. I’ve covered some of these marches over the years in places like Russia, Ukraine and South Africa. While there are vast differences between nations, the marchers tend to echo certain themes — themes we are hearing once again in the interviews that reporters are doing in Cairo. Protesters invariably say that their government has insulted their dignity by ignoring their views. They have a certain template of what a “normal” country looks like — with democracy and openness — and they feel humiliated that their nation doesn’t measure up. Moreover, the protesters tend to feel enormous pride that they are finally speaking up, even in the face of danger. They feel a surge of patriotism as the people of their country make themselves heard. This quest for dignity has produced a remarkable democratic wave. More than 100 nations have seen democratic uprisings over the past few decades. More than 85 authoritarian governments have fallen. Somewhere around 62 countries have become democracies, loosely defined. The experiences of these years teach us a few lessons. First, the foreign policy
DAVID BROOKS realists who say they tolerate authoritarian government for the sake of stability are ill informed. Autocracies are more fragile than any other form of government, by far. Second, those who say that speeches by outsiders have no influence on places like Egypt have it backward. The climate of opinion is the very basis of the revolt. Third, for all the pessimism and nervousness that accompanies change, most countries that have experienced uprisings end up better off. We can all think of exceptions, such as Iran, but we should greet these events with eagerness and hope. Fourth, while the public hunger for dignity is unabated, the road from authoritarianism to democracy is rocky and perilous. Over the past few years, the world has experienced a “freedom recession” with more governments retreating from democracy than advancing toward it. For outside powers, the real work comes after the revolution — in helping build governments that work. The other thing we’ve learned is that the United States usually gets everything wrong. There have been dozens of democratic uprisings over the years, but the government always reacts like it’s the first one. There seem to be no protocols for these situations, no preset questions to be asked. Policymakers always underestimate the power of the bottom-up quest for dignity, so they are slow to understand what is happening. Last week, for example, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that the Egyptian regime
was stable, just as it was falling apart. Then their instinct is to comfort the fellow members of the club of those in power. The Obama administration was very solicitous of President Hosni Mubarak during the first days of the protests and of other dictators who fear their regime may be next. Then, desperately recalibrating in an effort to keep up with events, they inevitably make a series of subtle distinctions no one else heeds. The Obama administration ended up absurdly calling on Mubarak to initiate a reform agenda. Surely there’s not a single person in the government who thinks he is actually capable of doing this. Meanwhile, the marchers heard this fudge as President Barack Obama supporting Mubarak and were outraged. The Obama administration’s reaction was tardy, but no worse than, say, the first Bush administration’s reaction to the uprisings in the Baltics and Ukraine. The point is, there’s no need to be continually wrong-footed. If you start with a healthy respect for the quest for dignity, if you see autocracies as fragile and democratic revolts as opportunities, then you’ll find it much easier to anticipate events. The Working Group on Egypt, co-led by Michele Dunne and Robert Kagan, has outperformed the U.S. government by miles. For months, they’ve been warning of Mubarak’s fragility. As the protests started, they issued a smart and concrete set of policy recommendations. Over the past decades, there has been a tide in the affairs of men and women. People in many places have risked their lives for recognition and respect. Governments may lag, and complications will arise, but still they will march. And, in the long run, we should be glad they do. David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times.

Create a rainy day fund without grabbing the ‘kicker’ By Rep. Kevin Cameron Bulletin guest columnist
ost Oregonians recognize the need for a robust rainy day fund to protect essential services during economic downturns. However, not everyone agrees on the best way to save for a rainy day. Some argue that canceling kicker checks to taxpayers and businesses will solve all of our problems. However, any effort to undermine the kicker will fail as long as Oregonians believe that state spending is out of control. To regain their confidence, the Legislature must show that it’s capable of saving money just as families and businesses do every day. The idea of building a rainy day fund at the expense of the kicker isn’t new. In 2007, the Legislature suspended the corporate kicker and redirected the revenue into the newly created rainy day fund.
Some heralded this as a major achievement that would end the boom-or-bust nature of Oregon’s finances. After an initial estimated deposit of $309 million, the rainy day fund was depleted as the economy soured and the Legislature continued to spend beyond our long-term means. With the rainy day fund now close to empty, some are going back to the kicker as the ultimate solution for future shortfalls. I believe there is a better way to rebuild our rainy day fund. Legislative Republicans have proposed dedicating 1 to 3 percent of general fund revenue at the beginning of every biennium to the rainy day fund. Simply put, our proposal requires the Legislature to save money before it spends it all. If our proposal had been in place since the beginning of 2007, we would’ve set aside as much as $792 million without touching the kick-
IN MY VIEW er and without taking more money out of the economy. However, there is no single solution that will make Oregon’s budget sustainable over the long term. The kicker is not the cause of Oregon’s fiscal problems, and diverting Oregonians’ kicker checks will not save services in the future. Even our own proposal will only go so far to protect Oregon when it’s raining. To truly bring spending under control, aggressive savings must be complemented by major reforms to our budgeting process. Overall, state spending has increased 40 percent since 2005. This level of spending has created a $3.5 billion shortfall that everyone reads about in the news. This shortfall only describes the difference between revenues and
the cost of maintaining an unsustainable state budget. It includes roll-up costs from new government programs that taxpayers couldn’t afford; hundreds of millions in one-time federal bailout money; and hundreds of millions in state salary, benefits and PERS increases. In reality, the Legislature will have $1.2 billion more to spend in 2011-13 than it did in the previous biennium. This will make for an increase, not a reduction, in general fund spending. In addition to setting aside money for the future, true reform means developing a budget on existing revenues — not on what’s needed to maintain the status quo. We must determine what state government can do with what we have, and work to provide the best possible services at a cost taxpayers can afford. Government reform is not a Republican or Democratic issue. Gov. John
Kitzhaber’s recommended budget is based on available dollars, not tax increases, and establishes a reserve of $220 million. His budget demonstrates a real commitment to long-term spending reform, and offers a fiscally sound blueprint for the Legislature to follow. House Republicans are willing to put partisan politics aside and work with the Democratic governor to prevent yet another decade of deficits. The Legislature must answer this call for change. Kicker reform advocates should understand that as long as state government resists true spending reform, there will be little appetite among Oregonians to lessen or eliminate kicker refunds. Rep. Kevin Cameron, R-Salem, is the Oregon House Republican leader. He is CEO of Café Today Restaurants.

O Lena Nyman, star of ‘I Am Curious’ films, dies at 66
John Kendall, 93, music teacher who championed Suzuki style By Matt Schudel The Washington Post
By Dennis Hevesi New York Times News Service
Lena Nyman, the Swedish actress whose performance in the sexually explicit movie “I Am Curious (Yellow)” raised the hackles of censors in the 1960s and helped turn the film into a box office bonanza, died Friday in Stockholm. She was 66. She died after a long illness, Nyman’s manager, Mats Nilemar, told The Associated Press. Nyman went on to a distinguished career after “I Am Curious.” In all, she had roles in more than 50 Swedish films and television shows, notably Ingmar Bergman’s “Autumn Sonata” in 1978, in which she played the mentally impaired sister to Liv Ullmann’s accomplished pianist. But it was in “I Am Curious” that she made perhaps her most indelible mark. In the film, Nyman portrayed an intensely serious young woman, also named Lena, who wanders Stockholm as an amateur reporter, raising questions about mores that seem to her to have calcified Swedish life. She asks people if Sweden really is a classless society and badgers union officials about why the labor movement is so conservative. Searching for her own sexual identity, Lena has a stormy affair with Borje (played by Borje Ahlstedt), after she meets him in a store. They have sex in a tree and on a balustrade in front of the royal palace, among other places.

Milton Babbitt, seen here in 1982, was an influential composer, theorist and teacher who wrote music that was intensely rational and for many listeners impenetrably abstruse. He died Jan. 29 at the age of 94.
Milton Babbitt, composer who challenged listeners
Banned from U.S. in 1968
By Emma Brown
Produced for $160,000 by the Swedish filmmaker Vilgot Sjoman, “I Am Curious (Yellow)” alarmed the U.S. Customs Service, which in January 1968 banned it from the country as obscene. That November a federal appeals court ruled that the movie was protected by the First Amendment, resulting in its release in March 1969. The movie made $5 million in six months and remained the most financially successful foreign film in the United States for 23 years. If “the cavemen of the U.S. Customs office” hadn’t seized “I Am Curious (Yellow),” Newsweek wrote in March 1969, “there probably wouldn’t be thousands upon thousands of people standing on lines today for the privilege of paying $4.50 to see the movie.” Reviews were mixed. “Miss Nyman’s performance is monotonous, and her only redeeming vice is her anger, which seems genuine and illimitable,” Joseph Morgenstern wrote in Newsweek. In The New York Times, Vincent Canby wrote, “Lena Nyman and Borje Ahlstedt are good, in addition to being perfectly presentable, in the central roles.” He added that the sex scenes were “so unaffectedly frank as to be nonpornographic.” In Sweden some critics saw the film as offensive. Because of her full figure, others called Nyman fat. That did not deter her. In 1968 she again played Lena in “I Am Curious (Blue),” almost a reprise of “Yellow.” (The Swedish flag is blue and yellow.) Nyman, who was born on May 23, 1944, in Stockholm, had been a student at National Theater School of Sweden when Sjoman chose her for “I Am Curious.” Information on survivors was not available.
Milton Babbitt, a composer who used his knack for mathematics to create a modern musical language that was elegantly complex, fearlessly dissonant and so dense that even critics sometimes struggled to explain its importance, died Jan. 29 at a hospital in Princeton, N.J. He was 94. The cause of death was not reported. For six decades, Babbitt wrote orchestral pieces and music for chamber groups and vocalists, including pioneering arrangements for the electric synthesizer. His work, praised by New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini for its “mercurial contrasts of mood, impishly jagged lines, constantly shifting surface motion, elegant colors and fine nuances of texture,” profoundly influenced younger musicians such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich. One of Babbitt’s early students was the future Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim. “I am his maverick, his one student who went into the popular arts armed with all his serious artillery,” Sondheim once said. Babbitt received a MacArthur Foundation grant and, in 1982, a special Pulitzer citation for his lifetime achievement as a “distinguished and seminal American composer.” His compositions built upon the groundbreaking work of Austrianborn composer Arnold Schoenberg, who had devised a new way to write music in the early 20th century. Schoenberg’s “serial” method — in which a composer arranges 12 notes in an order that is revisited and manipulated throughout the piece — marked a dramatic break with the musical theory that undergirds much of Western
Shocked by the shock Nyman was stunned by the reaction in her homeland to the “Curious” films, she told The Times in 1974. “You know,” she said, “some people get shocked about sex. I was shocked that everyone was so shocked. It was such a quarrel about that movie. Wow! “You could believe nobody in Sweden had ever seen a naked man or woman.”

classical music. Babbitt was among the first to extend Schoenberg’s serialism to elements including rhythm and timbre. The result was music guided by a set of rules that made for pieces both challenging to perform and difficult — for many listeners — to love. “It has long been fashionable to say that music like this grows in comprehensibility if we will only give it our time and attention, but I doubt it,” Times critic Bernard Holland wrote about the 1998 Carnegie Hall premiere of Babbitt’s “Second Piano Concerto.” Babbitt was unbothered by the fact that his music was, as he put it, “nonpopular.” In a controversial 1958 essay — “Who Cares If You Listen?” — he argued that audiences shouldn’t expect to enjoy or understand cutting-edge music, just as lay people don’t expect to comprehend physicists’ discussions about high-level science. The essay turned Babbitt into a symbol of what many thought was modern music’s cerebral snobbery. He was unapologetic. “The real arrogance comes not from composers, but from people in the audience who presume to know without having earned the right to know,”
he said in 1982. “Illiterate musical audiences,” he later said, “have no idea what music has been, so how can they have any idea of what music is or could be?” Milton Byron Babbitt was born May 10, 1916, in Philadelphia. He grew up in Jackson, Miss., where one of his childhood friends was novelist Eudora Welty, whose family lived a few doors down. Babbitt began studying violin at 4. “By the time I was 8,” he told the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, “I realized the violin had no social future, so I switched to sax and clarinet.” Within a few years, he was playing with touring New Orleans jazz bands and arranging pop songs. He studied math at the University of Pennsylvania until his uncle, a pianist, introduced him to Schoenberg’s compositions — “pieces that I couldn’t really believe were music,” Babbitt later said. He was fascinated and transferred to New York University to study music. Babbitt’s music was technically difficult to play, and he was drawn to synthesizers as a way to reduce his reliance on performers’ skills. In 1959, he became one of the first directors of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, home to one of the most advanced synthesizers of the time. Among his best known pieces for the synthesizer is “Philomel,” written in 1964 for soprano Bethany Beardslee. Beardslee sang the part of a woman transformed into a nightingale, her live performance delivered against a backdrop of her own recorded voice. The synthesized sounds “served as a chorus to the soloist, commenting, repeating and giving breathing space,” wrote Times critic Howard Klein. “The effect of the work was startlingly original.”
Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore dies at 58 The Associated Press

Actress Lena Nyman, who starred in sexually explicit movies that defined Swedish cinema in the 1960s, has died. She was 66.
LONDON — Bandmates say rock guitarist Gary Moore, a former member of influential Irish band Thin Lizzy, has died. He was 58. Manager Adam Parsons told the BBC that Moore was found dead Sunday at a hotel on Spain’s Costa del Sol, where he was on holiday. The cause of death was not immediately known. Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey said Moore’s death was a “total shock,” and guitarist Scott Gorham said he was “a great player and a great guy.” Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1952, Moore was a member of Dublin band Skid Row before joining Thin Lizzy in 1973, playing on tracks for the “Nightlife” album. He left after four months, but rejoined four years later and played on the band’s “Black Rose” album before going solo once again. He had a successful solo career, and his accomplished, bluesy playing won plaudits from other musicians. Thin Lizzy had global hits in the 1970s with songs like “The Boys are Back in Town” and “Whiskey in the Jar.” Frontman Phil Lynott died in 1986, but with a different lineup the band continues to tour today.

John D. Kendall, a violin teacher who introduced the Suzuki method of music training to the United States in the early 1960s, prompting a near-revolution in how children learn to play musical instruments, died Jan. 6 at a hospice in Ann Arbor, Mich. He was 93 and had a stroke. In 1958, while attending a music conference in Ohio, Kendall saw a short film in which hundreds of Japanese children were playing the Bach Double Violin Concerto with surprising skill. Wanting to learn more, he made an extended visit to Japan in 1959 and met Shinichi Suzuki, the teacher who devised a new approach that had children learning the violin at an early age. Suzuki, who died in 1998 at 99, had the idea that students could learn music in the same way — and at the same age — that they learned to speak. By imitating sounds and repeating the proper techniques of playing the violin, children as young as 3 could make music. When Kendall entered a room filled with Suzuki’s young students, they immediately began playing the Vivaldi G-minor Concerto. “It was really amazing,” Kendall told a Time magazine correspondent in 1959. “I was so touched I could feel tears welling up in my eyes.” Kendall brought the Suzuki method back to the United States and became one of its first and most influential teachers.

Water swirling down a kitchen sink or draining from a bathtub could eventually end up irrigating lawns and gardens under a proposed rule by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. Graywater — or water already used in sinks, showers, bathtubs and washing machines — would be flushed not into the sewer system but to an irrigation system. The rule stems from legislation passed in 2009 that legalized using graywater outside of a home or other building, said Ron Doughten, water reuse program coordinator with the DEQ. It was promoted by a group of people including individual homeowners and people looking to reuse water from larger commercial buildings. “They said, ‘Hey, Oregon has limited water supplies and resources; we don’t need to be using our created potable water for irrigating,’” Doughten said. In Bend, about 60 percent of water use annually goes for outside uses like irrigation, said Ric Olson, water conservation program manager with the city. “It’s pretty staggering if you look at the outdoor to indoor water use,” Olson said.

Bend startup SocialEatia may be launching locally, but it plans to expand, reaching cities across America By Jordan Novet The Bulletin
he Bend startup SocialEatia is seeking to take its proprietary Web technology across the nation, to help restaurants get their message out online and direct eaters to all the latest deals. The SocialEatia office sits atop the Helly Hansen outdoor-apparel store in the Old Mill District and spans 8,300 square feet, CEO Evan Julber said. There is good reason to have so much space and only three employees — the expectation of expansion. For now, www.socialeatia.com will focus on Bend restaurants. In
OTECH the months to come, the site should accommodate cities all around the country, Julber said. The current iteration of SocialEatia can serve several functions. Primarily, Julber said, the site exists “to help merchants manage their Facebook and Twitter” presence. So how does it work? A restaurant staffer submits the post — on an upcoming or immedi-
ate bargain, or another event — to SocialEatia, which sends it to the restaurant’s Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as SocialEatia’s website and its Twitter page. A restaurant also can affix a coupon to a post and set an expiration date for the post. Meanwhile, SocialEatia is determined to drive traffic to its site and, thus, the restaurants’ posts, by taking out advertisements in traditional media outlets. A restaurant can submit as many posts to SocialEatia as it wants, so long as it has a subscription with the site. Subscribers also can control time and frequency of posts.
The site is offering a 60-day free trial, after which restaurants must pay a yet-to-be-announced monthly subscription rate. Julber said an algorithm built in-house by Web developer Collin Robinson determines which restaurant promotions top the list on socialeatia.com. The number of clicks a particular promotion receives and the frequency of posts a given restaurant submits are among the factors influencing the algorithm, Julber said. Generally speaking, he said, “the whole idea is to reward the more popular merchants.” See SocialEatia / C6
The approximate 60% amount each year of water use in Bend that goes to outside uses like irrigation.
Types of graywater Under the proposed rule, there are three types of graywater that could be used for different purposes, Doughten said. • The first type of graywater would be untreated. That water could be reused in subsurface irrigation systems, which are lines that release water underground. • The second type is treated in some way to filter out the organic matter and solids that could be washed down a drain. Once it’s treated, the graywater could be used in drip irrigation, which releases water around the base of plants, or for other garden uses like a landscape pond — but it couldn’t be sprayed, Doughten said. The concern, he said, is organisms like viruses or bacteria could remain in the graywater, which could cause health problems. • The third type, which is treated and disinfected, could be used in a spray irrigation system, as long as it wouldn’t land on things like a water fountain or a foodpreparation area, Doughten said.

Nourishing nests lift these birds to a higher perch Scientists study the New Caledonian crow, an avian savant By Natalie Angier New York Times News Service
Amid all the psychosocial caterwauling these days over the relative merits of tiger mothers and helicopter dads, allow me to make a pitch for the quietly dogged parenting style of the New Caledonian crow. New Caledonian crows are renowned for their toolmaking
skills. In the complexity, fluidity and sophistication of their tool use, their ability to manipulate and bird-handle sticks, leaves, wires, strings and any other natural or artificial object they can find into the perfect device for fishing out food, or fishing out second-, third- or higher-order tools, the crows have no peers in the nonhuman vivarium, and that
includes such textbook-dexterous smarties as elephants, macaques and chimpanzees. Videos of laboratory studies with the crows have gone viral, showing the birds doing things that look practically faked. In one famous example from Oxford University, a female named Betty methodically bends a straight piece of wire against the outside
SCIENCE of a plastic cylinder to form the shape of a hook, which she then inserts into the plastic cylinder to extract a handled plug from the bottom as deftly as one might pull a stopper from a drain. Talking-cat videos just don’t stand a chance.
So how do the birds get so crafty at crafting? New reports in the journals Animal Behaviour and Learning and Behavior by researchers at the University of Auckland suggest that the formula for crow success may not be terribly different from the nostrums commonly served up to people: Let your offspring have an extended childhood in a stable and loving home; lead by example; offer positive reinforcement; be patient and persistent;
indulge even a near-adult offspring by occasionally popping a fresh cockroach into its mouth; and realize that at any moment a goshawk might swoop down and put an end to the entire pedagogical program. Jennifer Holzhaider, the lead author on the two new reports, said that in one year of their three-year field study, the crows they were following gave birth to a total of eight chicks. See Crows / C6

Old greeting cards: Treasure or toss ’em? Dear Abby: How long should I hold on to greeting cards from family and friends who send them on my birthday and holidays? I feel guilty throwing away something that someone spent time and money on for me, but they’re doing nothing more than taking up space in a drawer. — Cluttered with Cards in Connecticut Dear Cluttered: Don’t feel guilty. Contact a children’s hospital, nursery school, nursing home or senior center and ask whether they would like the greeting cards to use for craft projects. However, be sure to cut off identifying names and addresses before you donate them. Alternatively, consider taking them to a recycling center. Dear Abby: I have employed the same cleaning lady every week for nearly 20 years. She worked for my grandparents before me. “Dora” is 70 and shows no hint of retiring. In fact, she tells me from time to time she has no intention of ever stopping. Although I admire Dora’s spunk, the truth is she is becoming careless in her work. I often come home to find something broken, knocked over or spilled. I can see she has trouble managing the stairs and carrying the vacuum cleaner. I know she needs the income, and I can’t imagine letting her go. What can I do? — Housebroken in Buffalo Dear Housebroken: Point out the broken, spilled or knocked-over items and ask Dora what happened. Consider having Dora come to you every other week, and hire a cleaning crew to fill in and do the “heavy lifting” in the week she’s not there. That way, Dora will have her dignity, a lighter load to carry and some income. And you’ll have a house that’s spick-and-span, and no guilty conscience. Dear Abby: Two years ago, my boyfriend, “Dwight,” and I set a date for our wedding. He wanted to be married on his birthday. We happily announced the date to all
DEAR ABBY our family and friends. Six months ago, Dwight informed me that his divorce is taking longer than expected and the wedding date would have to be changed. I was very upset. I refused to set another one until after his divorce is final. Now, as the original date approaches, Dwight is mentioning things he’d like to do on his birthday. Abby, it was supposed to be my wedding day! I do not want to go to an action-adventure movie. I don’t know what to do with all the feelings of sadness associated with that missed date. Am I being childish? Should I just celebrate his birthday the way he wants? — Depressed in New Jersey Dear Depressed: Your sadness may be less about depression than anger — turned inward. While I sympathize with your disappointment, you need to accept that when you date a man who is still married, this goes with the territory. Because you are close enough that you had set a wedding date, you should also be close enough to discuss your feelings. It is understandable that you don’t feel like celebrating this birthday, and intelligent of you not to set another date until he is actually free to marry you. Do nothing that makes you uncomfortable. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

1 president, 2 different ‘Reagans’ B y Verne Gay He was “Ronnie” to Nancy, “the Gipper” to the rest of us, and for eight years an overwhelming presence in all our lives. Ronald Reagan was genially familiar to some, coldly remote and unknowable to others. No one was neutral when it came to the 40th president of the United States, who was born 100 years ago Sunday. But who was the real Reagan? To mark this anniversary, resolve the contradictions and — especially — celebrate the man, two major documentaries this week will explore his life and accomplishments. “Reagan” bows on HBO Monday, while History’s biography (also called “Reagan”) arrives Wednesday. The films are both admiring but sharply different. The former bends toward critical analysis; the latter is a straight-ahead narrative. Both offer evidence of a successful presidency, but little evidence in support of sainthood. Above all, they readily agree that the Great Communicator remains, nearly seven years after his death, a great communicator.
On HBO Reason to watch: Skillful analysis of the Reagan image What it’s about: Fascinated — if not outright preoccupied — with the iconography of Reagan, the film begins with a rush of pictures that spans a half-century of public life. These quick-cut snapshots of how others perceived him segue to how Reagan saw himself. He was born Feb. 6, 1911, in

Tampico, Ill. The formative experience of his early life, says his son Ron, was being a lifeguard: “He grew up seeing himself as someone who saved lives, and that carried to his movies. He wanted to play the hero and took this all the way to the presidency. He saw America drowning.” Divided by chapters that move through his life — his presidency of the Screen Actors Guild, the General Electric years that forged his conversion from FDR Democrat to Goldwater Republican, the California governorship, the presidency, Reaganomics, IranContra and so on — “Reagan” ends with a sharp quick blow at modern conservatives who want to turn the man into a myth. My say: This “Reagan” is far and away the superior of these two films, but that doesn’t mean it’s always the more evenhanded. The producer is Reagan admirer Eugene Jarecki — his critique of the U.S. war machine, “Why We
Fight,” was a Sundance grand prize winner some years ago — who argues that his legacy has been hijacked by tea party activists or neocons seeking to exploit their hero. This film — mostly successfully — works to establish Reagan as a real man with real world concerns, and more of a pragmatist than an ideologue. But there’s a bit of a juggling act going on as well. Jarecki wants to make this case while covering the whole record, and tends to overcorrect his course at times. There is a little too much emphasis on Iran-Contra, and too little on Reagan’s handling of defense or U.S.-Soviet relations. Bottom line: Thoughtful and well-produced
On History Reason to watch: A no-nonsense look at Reagan’s life and career What it’s about: History’s “Reagan” covers his life and career, with interviews from former ABC
News chief White House correspondent Sam Donaldson, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and — most noteworthy of all — Jerry Parr. “Jerry who?” you say. Parr was the Secret Service agent who hustled Reagan into a waiting limousine after shots rang out outside a Washington hotel. The assassination attempt frames this film, which argues — often persuasively — that Reagan’s presidency was shaped by those few shocking seconds and the aftermath. “When a guy gets up and takes a bullet and walks away with a smile,” says David Gergen, CNN senior political analyst and former director of communications for Reagan, “people just think differently about him.” My say: Perhaps the first thing you should know about History’s “Reagan” is that it was produced by the man behind “Pitbulls and Parolees,” “Inked” and “WWII in HD.” This isn’t to suggest that Matthew Ginsburg is not a competent filmmaker, but he seems far more interested in telling a made-for-TV story than in exploring the legacy or trying to figure out who Reagan really was. This “Reagan” devotes about 30 seconds to Reaganomics, and even less to Iran-Contra. That’s not because this is a hagiography, though it drifts perilously close at times. It’s because these subjects don’t make for good TV. Bottom line: Largely — OK, completely — uncritical, this is still a lively and engaging stroll through Reagan’s life and times.

The White Stripes broke up with mix of style, mystery By Greg Kot Chicago Tribune
The news that the White Stripes broke up Wednesday really didn’t come as a shock to anyone. It had been four years since their last studio album and tour, but it still prompted an outpouring of social-media grief. The Stripes, of course, are a duo consisting of Jack and Meg White, once a married couple who carried on long after their divorce to make some of the best music of the last decade. They had been together for 13 years, released six acclaimed studio albums and put on consistently galvanizing live shows. The duo announced their breakup on the whitestripes.com website, saying they would make no more new recordings and no longer perform live. Fans hoping for a tipping-point motivation for the timing of this announcement were left hanging. There were no “artistic differences” or health problems, the duo wrote. “Mostly,” they said, they are breaking up now “to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.” My Twitter response Wednesday to the announcement was this: “Stinks White Stripes are gone, but love that they exited while on top, with no cash-in tour. Jack and Meg integrity meter trending upward.” And make no mistake, the White Stripes could’ve cashed in. Had they announced a reunion or farewell tour for this summer in a concert industry starved for bigname acts, they would’ve been lavished with offers and played to the largest audiences of their career. Instead, they simply walked away. So is that going out “on top”? More than a few people questioned my assertion. A few wondered why the duo hadn’t just broken up years ago. They speculated about why the White Stripes let things drag on this long, before finally declaring the inevitable. Wouldn’t going out on top mean making a great album, following it with a triumphant tour, and then marching off into the sunset immediately afterward? Indeed, nothing the duo did in the last few years suggested there was much of a future for the White Stripes. Meg White’s health issues had prompted the group to curtail what would be its final tour in 2007, and Jack White had occupied himself with other groups (the Raconteurs, the Dead Weather) and other projects (running his Third Man label out of Nashville and producing albums for the likes of Wanda Jackson) that strongly indicated the White Stripes were no longer a priority. But Jack and Meg White never once treated the White Stripes as an afterthought. Each of their albums was strong, and their last studio release, “Icky Thump,” was among their best. The tour that followed made for riveting theater. The old show-biz adage is to leave the audience wanting more, and the White Stripes did just that. Most fans’ last memo-
The Associated Press
Meg White, left, and Jack White announced they were breaking up the White Stripes in a post on their website Wednesday.
ries of the White Stripes will be of a band in peak form. It’s little wonder. The Stripes were meticulous about how they presented themselves and their music — from the red-and-white color schemes of their clothes to the two-against-the-world sound of the songs — even if it sometimes came across as loose, rough and spontaneous. And that careful approach survived through their breakup. Meg and Jack White never rushed into an artistic decision in their career, and they weren’t about to do it as they were ending their musical life together. We’ll probably never know much more about why the band splintered outside of those few paragraphs on their website. They’ve always been extremely guarded in interviews about their relationship. But Jack White once described “tension” as one of the band’s guiding principles, and once you accept that, this announcement makes sense. In concert, the interaction between Jack White’s vocals and guitar and the way Meg White answered him on drums was as snappy, witty and cutting as the dialogue in a Humphrey BogartLauren Bacall movie. Play out the scene a little further, and anything from a kiss to a gun could be produced. Meg White took a lot of heat for not being a particularly accomplished drummer, at least technically. But she was the perfect drummer for the White Stripes, listening to and playing off Jack White better than any other human being on the planet could have. The body language, the glances between the two, were a theater all their own. The music offered a glimpse of their relationship, but only a glimpse. In a rare private moment captured in “The White Stripes: Under Great Northern Lights” tour DVD released last year, Jack White sits backstage at a piano playing “White Moon,” a ghostly song of obsession. Meg sits silently next to him, head bowed, mouthing some of the words. There is a glance from Jack, and then Meg begins to cry. The song ends, but the tears do not, and the couple clings to one another, in no hurry to let go.

Bigar’s Stars is based on the degree of your sun at birth. The sign name is simply a label astrologers put on a set of degrees for convenience. For best results, readers should refer to the dates following each sign. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Feb. 7, 2011: This year, you will communicate your issues and ideas in a dynamic manner so that others hear you loud and clear. This newfound strength funnels into your daily life, adding to your immediate relationships, from neighbors to loved ones. You find the right words. If you are single, you will need to sort through your many admirers with an eye to the type of bond you desire. If you are attached, the two of you discover a newfound appreciation for each other. Your differences become a strong point. ARIES brings out the best in you. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHHH Charging ahead is one of your innate, “I feel good” responses. You are able to communicate your needs in a manner that makes waves. Avoid someone who is determined to have it his or her way and will do nearly anything to assure that outcome. Tonight: You call the shots. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Make it OK to withdraw and observe. Fatigue marks your decisions and actions. Make it OK to be low-key, and postpone any project that simply feels like too much to do. Change evolves because of your willingness to look within. Tonight: Get extra R and R.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Zero in on what you want. Meetings help you orchestrate a goal and gain support. Others easily could go to extremes. Decide to stay on your path. A partner clearly masters the control game. The only way to win is not to play. Tonight: Be with the one you want. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH A must appearance carries a lot of weight.

When greener equals cheaper for your business By Jim Witkin New York Times News Service
While Joe Santana does not presume to understand all of the latest climate science, he has his own opinions about global warming. But as head of operations at Mi Rancho, a family-owned tortilla producer in San Leandro, Calif., he understands the importance of saving money. After attending a series of workshops on sustainable business practices, Santana recently put into action a number of energy-efficiency and waste-reduction measures that he estimates will save Mi Rancho about $100,000 a year and pay for themselves well within the first year. “And if that’s good for the planet,” he said, “all the better.” “Sustainability” and “going green” are buzzwords that get overused, but many business owners are discovering that looking at their operations through a green lens can help them reduce costs, rethink long-held business practices and open doors to new opportunities. Here are some tips on getting started.
Start at the top The commitment to make a business greener has to come from top management, said Dan Bramblett, an executive at Estes Heating and Air Conditioning, a contractor based in Atlanta: “There are many things employees can do to start the process, but driving this through the company culture must start at the top.” At the same time, he added, “engaging employees is key to getting everyone on board.” Santana advised setting up internal green teams, consisting of volunteers from management and staff who meet on a regular basis. At Mi Rancho, the sustainability group meets once a month to review strategy, check progress and identify energy-saving actions. Some of the best ideas come from the front lines.
Take inventory To begin, Bramblett said, analyze the business operations with an eye toward reducing energy consumption and waste: “Look at those places where you spend the most money.” Common areas to consider are lighting, powering your equipment, heating, air-conditioning, transportation and water use. For Estes, the company’s biggest expense after personnel costs was transportation and fleet maintenance. Look also at the waste produced by the business. Disposing of this material often incurs a cost. At the end of this planning process, establish a baseline of your energy use and costs, said Tom Bowman, president of Bowman Design Group, a design firm based in Signal Hill, Calif. Most utility companies will come to your property to perform an energy audit, or you can use the information from your utility bills. “Having a well-defined start-
SocialEatia Continued from C1 In addition, SocialEatia’s site will soon allow users to filter posts by type of restaurant, price point and other variables, Julber said. “We really want to encourage local businesses to jump on board,” said Lara Wettig, SocialEatia’s director of sales and marketing. Restaurant owners who have learned about the website have given “overwhelmingly positive” responses and expressed interest in signing up, Wettig said. They view it as an “additional medium to advertise,” she said. The two seeds for growing SocialEatia appeared at the intersection of food and social networking. The first came when a restaurant owner was telling Julber about how frustrating it was for her to try to get her message across on Facebook. The second appeared while Julber and his family were enjoying the alder-smoked prime ribs at Baldy’s Barbeque on Century Drive in Bend last August. Julber wondered: What had inspired his family to go there in the first
ing point allows you to track and measure your progress,” he said.
Do the easy stuff Find steps you can accomplish immediately, said Bowman, and then build from there with actions that cost nothing or very little to apply. As an example, you might shut down electronics at night, turn off overhead lights during daylight hours and open windows to get natural ventilation instead of running the air conditioning. These steps, he said, are “largely about educating employees and changing old habits.” Adam Prochaska, a partner at the law firm Harding & Shultz in Lincoln, Neb., is trying to change some old habits by getting his colleagues to reduce their paper use. Prochaska has calculated that his firm buys 1,600 reams of copy paper each year. A portion of that paper is used to print e-mails. He and a handful of other lawyers have started to store those e-mails electronically instead. He figures that if all of the lawyers in the firm did this, they could save at least $8,000 a year in printing and storage costs.
Continued from C1 “We thought, yay, we’ll have eight juveniles we can watch,” she said. But the goshawks, the rats, the owls and the torrential rains took their toll, and only one of those eight chicks survived. “It’s a hard life in the jungle; that’s all there is to it,” said Holzhaider. By studying the social structure and behavior of the crows and the details of their difficult daily lives, the researchers hope to gain new insights into the evolution of intelligence, the interplay between physical and social skillfulness, and the relative importance of each selective force in promoting the need for a big animal brain. The researchers want to know why it is that, of the 700 or so species of crows, ravens, rooks, jays and magpies that make up the world’s generally clever panoply of corvids, the New Caledonian crow became such an outlier, an avian savant, a YouTube top of the line.
Continued from C1 Doughten said the DEQ also has proposed putting in some environmental safeguards as well, such as stating that a subsurface irrigation system could not be less than 4 feet above the groundwater table in order to make sure there’s enough soil to filter the graywater before it hits an aquifer. For some area irrigators, the proposed rule is welcome. “I think it’s a great direction to go, and it just makes sense,” said John Low, manager of Ewing Irrigation Products in Bend. “Clean water is such a precious resource for us to be using it for the things that we can be using graywater for.” But some protections are needed, he said — it wouldn’t be good to put Drano down a shower drain only to have it pumped into the garden. Still, most of the material that goes down a sink, like food waste, would be harmless, he said, especially if someone had a filter system to clean it up further. Low said he knows people in Portland who have installed rainwater-capture systems on roofs and said a certain segment of the population will be thrilled to have the option to reuse graywater. But others, looking at the economics of installing a system, which would have to include a reservoir to store the graywater as well as pumps to get it to the lawn, might shy away, Low said. An inexpensive retrofit could cost $1,000, he said, and a graywater system could easily get up to $5,000. And although it makes a
‘A big puzzle’
Once the easy stuff is done, the next step is investing in energy-efficient equipment: heating systems, air conditioners and other office gear. But before starting down this road, check out the incentive programs and rebates available through the utility and local city government, as well as state and federal agencies.
“It’s a big puzzle,” said Russell Gray, head of the Auckland lab. “Why them? Why is this species on a small island in the Pacific able to not just use but to manufacture a variety of tools, and in a flexible rather than a rote or programmatic way? Why are they able to do at least as well as chimpanzees on experiments of cognition that show an understanding of the physical properties of the world and an ability to generalize from one problem to the next?” If the birds learn to avoid holes and barriers in the experimental setting of a plastic tubed box, for example, they will avoid holes and barriers in the very different conditions of a wooden table. “Knowing their social structure,” Gray said, “is one part of the jigsaw.” New DNA studies suggest that corvids first arose at the end of the dinosaur era, roughly 65 million years ago, somewhere in the neighborhood of Australia, and radiated outward from there. The ancestors of the New Caledonian crow didn’t travel far before settling on the 220-mile-long land sprig from which the species derives its name. The modern New Caledonian crow is funereal of bill and feather and, at an average of 12 inches in length and 12 ounces in weight, a middling sort of corvid: much smaller than a common raven, slightly more compact than the ubiquitous American crow, but beefier than a jay or a jackdaw. Brain size is another matter. “All corvid brains are relatively big,” said Gray, “but preliminary evidence suggests that the New Caledonian brain is big even for corvids.” Moreover, the brain is preferentially enlarged, displaying impressive bulk in the avian equivalent of the cogitating forebrain, particularly structures involved in associative learning and fine motor skills.
Watch what you say
After adopting a sustainability policy, many businesses are eager to start waving the green flag. But be wary of overstating or misrepresenting your efforts, thus earning the dreaded “greenwashing” label. “Be honest and clear about the steps you’ve taken ... and acknowledge it’s part of an ongoing process,” Bowman said. “The goal is to show that the company takes the challenge seriously and is working on
Their bills are also exceptional, “more like a human opposable thumb than the standard corvid beak,” said Gray. The bills “appear specialized to hold tools,” said Anne Clark, who studies American crows at the State University of New York at Binghamton but who also has observed New Caledonian crows in the field. “When I was watching them, they seemed to grab a stick whenever they appeared unable to figure something out,” she said,
place? Ah, he recalled, it was a tweet about the special going on then at the restaurant. “Putting those two together and realizing the power of social media and coming up with an idea about how to harness it” gave birth to SocialEatia, Julber said. Julber, 53, has led a diversified life thus far, having worked in mining and refining at surface mines in Colorado, preciousmetals trading in California and software programming in Washington state, among other jobs. In 2008, after living and working in Bend for 13 years, he established the website Fractional Exchange, on which vacation home owners can connect with others and temporarily swap their places worldwide. Now Julber has another website to run. “Bend, Oregon, is our proving ground for our concept,” Julber said of SocialEatia. In the coming months, the plan is to create SocialEatia pages for other cities, first in the Northwest, then nationwide, with at least one salesperson in each city. Many city offices should also have editors of posts on staff, too, Julber said. Six months from now, Julber said, SocialEatia is likely to be up
and running at least in Portland, in addition to Bend. And he hopes to fill up the vast Bend office in the months to come, too, with plenty of new employees, most of whom will focus on customer service. The company has already identified 230 cities where SocialEatia could operate, he said. For now, though, “we’re just starting it off,” Julber said. “The ball is starting to roll,” Wettig added. Scott Larson, venture catalyst manager at Economic Development for Central Oregon, has spoken with Julber about SocialEatia. Indeed, Larson said, “there is enormous potential within social media for this type of service and application to grow and flourish.” Such success would not surprise Larson, he said, because he has seen technology-oriented companies in the region, such as Manzama and G5, take on a national or international focus. Those firms and others have shown “it’s proven, it’s viable and companies are doing it, over and over again,” Larson said.
Track and report As with any business initiative, review your results periodically, said Sarah Kate Fishback, who is director of operations at the Institute for Sustainable Development. She suggested “measuring the things you can measure — energy, waste, water use — and then try to quantify the business impact of taking action on these fronts.” Showing positive financial gains, she said, will keep the process on track. Sharing the results with the staff also keeps everyone motivated, Deal said.

Science (journal) via The Associated Press
A wild New Caledonian crow is tagged with a video camera (the lens is protruding through the central tail feathers). After mounting tiny cameras to crows, researchers have discovered that the birds use a variety of tools, and even make their own, to seek food. rather as a mathematician has trouble solving a problem without a pencil in hand. The birds are indefatigable toolmakers out in the field. They find just the right twigs, crack them free of the branch, and then twist the twig ends into needle-sharp hooks. They tear strips from the saw-toothed borders of Pandanus leaves, and then shape the strips into elegant barbed spears. With their hooks and their spears they extract slugs, insects and other invertebrates from deep crevices in the ground or in trees. Through an arduous transisland survey of patterns left behind in Pandanus leaves by the edge-stripping crows, Gavin Hunt of the University of Auckland determined that toolmaking styles varied from spot to spot, and those styles remained stable over time. In sum, New Caledonian crows have their version of culture. Being cultured is hard work. In studying the birds’ social life, Holzhaider and her colleagues confirmed previous observations that New Caledonian crows are not group-living social butterflies, as many crows and ravens are, but instead adhere to a nuclear family arrangement. Males and females pair up and stay together year-round, reaffirming their bond with charming gestures like feeding and grooming each other, sitting close enough to touch, and not even minding when their partner plays with their tools. Young birds stay with their parents for two years or more — a very extended dependency, by bird standards — and they forage together as a family, chattering all the while. “They have this way of talking in a quiet voice, ‘Waak, waak, waak,’ that sounds really lovely,” Holzhaider said. The juveniles need their extended apprenticeship. “They’re incredibly persistent, wildly ripping and hacking at Pandanus leaves, trying to make it work,” she said, “but for six months or so, juveniles are no way able to make a tool.” The parents step into the breach, offering the trainee food they have secured with their own finely honed tools. “By seeing their parents get a slug out of a tree, they learn that there’s something down there worth searching for,” she said. “That keeps them going.” The carrot-on-a-stick approach: It works every time.

lot of sense, Low said, it could be cost-prohibitive for some people to convert to graywater capture. “I think some will, I think most won’t,” Low said. Allowing graywater reuse in irrigation is a good step, said Katy Bryce with the Environmental Center in Bend. It lets people who want to build green homes add another environmentally friendly element to the construction, she said — although having a couple of good demonstration sites would help encourage people to try it themselves. Homeowners have already started moving toward low-water irrigation systems, or xeriscaping, that require little water to begin with, she said, so this could be another step in that direction. “I think people are concerned about water use here,” Bryce said.

Bend’s Ford places 18th in giant slalom at World Cup event
Bend’s Ashton Eaton tops his own world record in heptathlon
HINTERSTODER, Austria — Alpine skier Tommy Ford, of Bend, followed up Saturday’s career day with another solid World Cup result on Sunday, when he finished 18th in giant slalom. Ford placed 11th in Super G on Saturday, the best World Cup Tommy Ford finish of his young career. In Sunday’s giant slalom, Ford, 21, was the third American behind ninth-place Bode Miller (2 minutes, 47.01 seconds) and 13th-place Ted Ligety (2:47.34). Ford’s time was 2:47.55. The 18th-place finish likely secures for Ford a spot in the 2011 Alpine Ski World Championships, which start Tuesday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. On Sunday, Ford finished ahead of two other U.S. skiers with whom he was battling for a start in the world championship giant slalom — Warner Nickerson finished 26th, and Tim Jitloff did not finish his first run. “It was a great day for Tommy Ford with his first time in the GS points this year,” said U.S. Ski Team men’s head coach Sasha Rearick. Philipp Schoerghofer of Austria won Sunday’s giant slalom with a time of 2:46.44. The men’s giant slalom races at the world championships are scheduled for Feb. 17-18. — From staff, wire reports

Bend runner King just misses out on bid for worlds SAN DIEGO — Bend’s Max King finished seventh Saturday at the 2011 USA Cross Country Championships, one place away from qualifying for next month’s world championships. Seeking to qualify for his fourth Team USA crosscountry squad, King, 30, finished the 12-kilometer men’s race at Mission Bay Park in a time of 36 minutes, 11 seconds. He was just six seconds behind sixth-place finisher Brian Olinger, of Westerville, Ohio. The top six finishers qualified to represent Team USA at the International Association of Athletics Federations World Cross Country Championships, to be held March 20 in Punta Umbria, Spain. King raced for Team USA at the world championships in 2006, 2008 and 2009. Brent Vaughn, 26 and of Black Hawk, Colo., was the men’s champion Saturday with a time of 35:46.

Hitting the road Nearby early-season tours abound for the dedicated Central Oregon cyclist By Amanda Miles The Bulletin
The summer cycling season, with its races and tours, can seem awfully far away in February. And if you are a cyclocross die-hard, the wait for your favorite time of year is even longer. If you are the type of rider who needs some motivation to stay on your bike during these winter months, or an intermediate goal to break up your training while waiting for the main portion of your season, perhaps you should give some thought to an early-season tour. Cycling tours are, typically, noncompetitive, organized rides in which cyclists pay a fee to participate. A hallmark distance in these tours is the century ride — 100 miles — but tours can be shorter or longer, one day long or multiple days, and they often include routes of various distances from which riders can choose. “It’s great motivation to get out there and do an early ride with some decent mileage,” says Gary Klingler, 56. The Bend resident, a retired firefighter, has participated in numerous tours over the years, including the multiday Cycle Oregon event — which tours a different part of the state every September — about 15 times. While Central Oregon does not offer many tours during the spring months, that just means you can take the opportunity to explore someplace new. A number of tours are held within about a day’s drive or less from Central Oregon, starting as early as this month, and you can participate in a tour practically every weekend into the fall if you are so inclined. If you enjoy climbing, Klingler observes that the Grizzly Peak Century based out of Moraga, Calif. — just west of Oakland — offers a lot of hills on country roads. The longest of the event’s routes, 109 miles, provides more than 8,500 feet of incline. See Road / D6

Winter sports • Germany’s Rebensburg wins women’s giant slalom: Olympic champion Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany won a women’s World Cup giant slalom race Sunday in Zwiesel, Germany, and World Cup leader Maria Riesch extended her lead on defending champion Lindsey Vonn. Rebensburg had a comfortable lead after the first run and held on to earn her second career World Cup victory, clocking a combined time of 1 minute, 36.96 seconds on the Arberg course. Federica Brignone of Italy earned her best career result in taking second in 1:37.49 and Kathrin Zettel of Austria was third in 1:37.85. • Austria’s Schoerghofer wins World Cup giant slalom: Philipp Schoerghofer of Austria won Sunday’s World Cup giant slalom in Hinterstoder, Austria, earning his first career victory in the final men’s race before the world championships. Schoerghofer finished in an aggregate time of 2 minutes, 46.44 seconds, and Bode Miller of the United States posted the fastest second-run time to take ninth place. Kjetil Jansrud of Norway led after the opening run and finished 0.17 behind Schoerghofer. Carlo Janka of Switzerland was another 0.03 back in third. • Austria’s Hirscher to miss worlds with broken foot: Austrian skier Marcel Hirscher is out of the world championships after breaking a bone in his left foot in a World Cup giant slalom race. The Austrian ski federation says Hirscher might need surgery and could be sidelined at least six weeks. Hirscher fell and lost his left ski after catching a bump in his opening run Sunday on the icy Hannes Trinkl course.
Football • Patriots’ Brady unanimous MVP choice: Tom Brady has become the first unanimous choice of The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award. In winning his second MVP honor, Brady collects all 50 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league. In 2007, when the Patriots’ quarterback won his first MVP, he got 49 votes; one voter went to Brett Favre. Although he didn’t set nearly as many passing marks as in ’07, Brady by far was the league’s top performer in leading New England to a 14-2 record, best in the NFL. He had a record streak of 355 throws without being intercepted and passed for 36 touchdowns while being picked off only four times. • Cal hires new offensive coordinator: Jeff Tedford is following up his first losing season at California with some sweeping changes to his coaching staff. Cal announced Saturday night that Jim Michalczik was hired as offensive coordinator, replacing Andy Ludwig after a disappointing 5-7 season. Marcus Arroyo also was hired as quarterbacks coach, associate head coach Ron Gould was promoted to the run-game coordinator and Eric Kiesau will be the passing-game coordinator.
Basketball • Celtics G Daniels fully functional after injury: Boston Celtics guard Marquis Daniels bruised his spinal cord in a collision Sunday and is expected to be sidelined at least a month. Daniels was hurt with 11:01 left in the second quarter of the Celtics’ 91-80 win over the Orlando Magic after he began driving to the basket from the right side of the lane and collided with Gilbert Arenas, who was covering him. Daniels fell to the court and lay motionless for a few minutes with his head facing down while surrounded by coaches and teammates near his bench. — The Associated Press
Capitals snap Penguins’ win streak The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The goalie who got dissed turned shaky into a shutout. Alex Ovechkin took a hit to the knee so nasty he wasn’t penalized when he retaliated with a punch to the face. That was just a taste of the animosity from the Washington Capitals’ 3-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, two rivals who put on a Super Sunday show for the second straight year and again left no doubt they wouldn’t be hanging out together afterward to watch the NFL’s big game. “They don’t like us. We don’t like them,” Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said. “That’s the way it should be.” Boudreau was particularly feisty after the Capitals’ eighth straight Super Bowl matinee win, a game in which David Steckel was targeted because of a hit on Sidney Crosby on New Year’s Day. Washington snapped the five-game winning streak of the star-starved Penguins, who are dealing with a likely season-ending knee injury to Evgeni Malkin and are awaiting Crosby’s return from a concussion. Michal Neuvirth, who was called “shaky” by Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma during the HBO series that shadowed these two teams during the build-up to the Winter Classic, made 22 saves for his second career shutout. Neuvirth got his first start since Jan. 18 because expected starter Semyon Varlamov was feeling ill. The young Czech wasn’t short on motivation. “Before the game, I remembered when he said that,” Neuvirth said, “and I kind of looked at him during the warm-up and told myself that I got to shut these guys out tonight.” Brooks Laich scored a blue-collar goal in the first period, Marcus Johansson got a flashy short-handed one in the second period, and Mike Knuble added an empty-netter in the third for the Capitals, who picked up some needed momentum with their second solid win a row, following the 5-2 win over Tampa Bay on Friday that snapped a three-game losing streak. At first, there seemed no way Sunday’s game could recapture the magic of two of the teams’ most recent high-profile meetings. It was a year ago on Super Sunday that the Capitals rode Ovechkin’s hat trick to overcome a three-goal deficit in a rough, name-calling win in overtime while the rest of the nation’s capital was digging out from a massive blizzard. Then, on New Year’s Day, the teams met at Heinz Field — home of the Super Bowl’s Steelers — where Washington took a 3-1 win in the first prime-time Winter Classic. Sunday was the first chance for the Penguins to

The Capitals won 3-0. retaliate for the hit Crosby took to the head from David Steckel in the Jan. 1 game. Crosby took another hit in the head from Tampa Bay’s Victor Hedman on Jan. 5 and has since missed 13 games. It seemed right on cue, then, when Pittsburgh’s Tim Wallace, recalled on Saturday night from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL, goaded Steckel into dropping the gloves after a faceoff in the third period. “I certainly thought he did a good job of stepping up and fighting Steckel,” Bylsma said. Boudreau was not pleased. He stated passionately that the Steckel hit on Crosby has been overblown because it wasn’t intentional. “I’ve coached him for eight years and he’s never done it once,” Boudreau said. “So if they want to use it as a motivating tool, go ahead. But they send out a guy they called up (to fight). And Mike Rupp, who’s a fighter, knowing Dave never fought, challenging him. To me, it was (rubbish).” Then, with 3:42 to play, Matt Cooke tripped Ovechkin knee-to-knee in the open ice. Ovechkin got up, and he and Nicklas Backstrom immediately charged Cooke, both landing punches to the face. Cooke was given 2 minutes for tripping;
neither Ovechkin nor Backstrom was penalized. “I didn’t think much contact was made,” Bylsma said. “Maybe their skates get wound up together.” In other games on Sunday: Lightning . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .4 Blues . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .3 TAMPA, Fla. — Vincent Lecavalier had a power-play goal at 4:53 in overtime, Steven Stamkos scored his NHL-leading 40th goal and Tampa Bay beat St. Louis.

Wilson takes lead at frosty Phoenix Open The Associated Press SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Mark Wilson had a two-stroke lead in the Phoenix Open when play was suspended Sunday because of darkness. Wearing a yellow visor and green shirt in support of his beloved Packers, the Wisconsin player broke a tie with Tommy Gainey with a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-3 12th. Gainey threeputted the hole for a bogey. “I birdied some tough holes,” Wilson said. “The 4-iron I hit on 12 was the best swing of the day and I rolled in that putt. Just felt good. “Been a long ride. I mean, four holes the first day, 28 holes the next day and then four holes and now 31 holes, and we’ll do five more tomorrow and see what happens.” Wilson and Gainey were facing 20-foot birdie putts on the par-5 13th when they decided it was too dark to finish the hole. “I was thinking about putting it, but it’s hard to read and it’s a goofy little putt,” Wilson said. “It’ll be a lot easier tomorrow morning. “Someone was screaming in my head saying, ‘Don’t putt this tonight!’ So, when I heard that voice, I said, ‘Let’s mark it.’ ” Wilson was 18 under. Gainey was tied for second with Vijay Singh and Jason Dufner. Singh shot a 5-under 66, while Dufner had four holes left.
The start Sunday was delayed a half-hour because of frost. About nine hours of playing time has been lost to frost and frozen turf, forcing today’s finish. Wilson completed a 68 in the third round Sunday and was 2 under through 12 holes in the final round. On the amphitheater 16th in the third round, Wilson and caddie Chris Jones donned cheeseheads and led the rowdy fans in Packers chants. “The saddest thing is I couldn’t watch the first half of the Super Bowl,” said Wilson, who got scoring updates from the on-course announcers. “That’s about it. But the Packers carried through in the first half, so I’ll watch the second half.” Gainey was 1 over in the final round after shooting a 68 in the third round to take a one-stroke lead over Wilson. “I’m not too happy in my position right now, two back, but I’ve just got to come out tomorrow and just get it done,” Gainey said. “Just start making some putts.” He matched Wilson with a bogey on the par-4 11th after driving into the water on the left, then dropped another stroke on 12 when he three-putted from 90 feet. “I made a couple bogeys the last few holes, and you know, I didn’t think I really hit that many bad shots to be honest with you,” Gainey said. “The drive on No. 11, I thought was good. I hit it in

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo kept scoring inside while the Orlando Magic continued missing from outside. Boston’s pass-first point guard drove aggressively to the hoop and scored 26 points to lead the Celtics to a 91-80 win on Sunday. “He totally dominated us,” Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said, “got where he wanted to go anytime he wanted to go.” With Rondo scoring 11 points, the Celtics extended a 46-43 halftime lead to 70-61 after the third quarter. They led by eight to 16 points the rest of the way. Paul Pierce had 18 points and Kevin Garnett scored 16 for the Celtics, who improved to 23-4 at home. Dwight Howard had 28 points — only six in the second half — and 13 rebounds for the Magic, who lost for the fifth time in eight games despite playing tight defense on Pierce and Ray Allen. “They didn’t leave Ray or Paul’s body. I tried to be aggressive,” Rondo said. “The lane just opened up a lot more even though Dwight was down there.” The Celtics rallied after a scary injury to backup guard Marquis Daniels with 11:01 left in the second quarter. He was taken off the court on a stretcher after a collision with Gilbert Arenas and Orlando ahead 24-

Boston led by three at halftime and stretched that to 70-55 with 3:36 left in the third quarter. At that point, the Celtics had made nine of their 10 shots in the period while the Magic had hit just four of 18. “I just could not find anything for us to run to get a decent shot,” Van Gundy said. Orlando scored the last six points of the third quarter, cutting the lead to 70-61, but the
Celtics came right back with a 7-2 run to go ahead 77-63. “I thought Rondo took the third over,” Garnett said. “In the second half, we had a lot more energy emotionally.” Allen made two of four 3-point attempts and moved within three of the NBA record of 2,560 made 3-pointers held by Reggie Miller.

MINNEAPOLIS — Jared Sullinger and still-unbeaten Ohio State didn’t back down or let up. Another unflappable performance by the 6-foot-9, 280-pound freshman left Minnesota coach Tubby Smith wondering what happened to his big men — and planning more time for his team in the weight room. David Lighty scored 19 points, Sullinger had 18 points and 13 rebounds, William Buford and Jon Diebler made three 3-pointers apiece and the top-ranked Buckeyes beat No. 18 Minnesota 82-69 on Sunday. “You can see the difference in experienced, physical players: They just kind of shoved us out of the way,” Smith said. Every starter for Ohio State (24-0, 11-0 Big Ten) scored 10 or more points to help stretch the second-longest winning streak in school history, creeping toward the record of 32. Buford added 15 points, four
though, and had four turnovers. “We were just careless with the ball. Those are the kind of mistakes we can’t have in a game like this, or in any game,” said Austin Hollins, who started in place of Colton Iverson and finished with eight points. Smith praised the performance of freshmen Hollins, Chip Armelin and Maverick Ahanmisi, but Iverson, Ralph Sampson III and Trevor Mbakwe combined for 12 turnovers in and around the paint. Iverson didn’t score and had four fouls in 14 minutes. “If our post men are going to turn the ball over 12 times, and that’s where our strength was, I don’t know what to do,” Smith said. Armelin had a career-high 14 points in 23 minutes, but Sampson went scoreless after a 14point first half and five of Mbakwe’s seven rebounds came before

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP assists, four rebounds and two steals, and the Buckeyes checked another opponent off the list in this most-challenging month. Up next is a trip to No. 19 Wisconsin on Saturday, and after a home game against Michigan State the Buckeyes travel to play No. 11 Purdue. They have won 12 straight conference road games, dating to last season. “We’re never scared,” Sullinger said. “Even on the road, or at home, we just keep playing basketball. That’s what we do.” The Gophers are sorely lacking those floor leaders, particularly while senior point guard Al Nolen is out with a broken foot. Blake Hoffarber led Minnesota (16-7, 56) with 16 points, playing the second half with a limp and a brace on his left knee after bumping it on the court and hurting the bursa sac. He is playing out of position,

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Pack is back. NFL football? Well, nobody’s quite sure when that’s going to return. Led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers returned to the top of the football world Sunday with a 31-25 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. It was yet another thrilling capper to the NFL’s season, but this time, when they turned out the lights on the championship game, there was no guarantee they’d be back next fall. A labor war that pits rich athletes against richer owners could shut down the game. The collective bargaining agreement that led to unprecedented success for the NFL expires at the end of the day on March 3, and barring an agreement before then, owners are threatening to lock out players. They are pondering the unthinkable: The first play stoppage since 1987. The shutdown of the only form of entertainment that, as the sky-high TV ratings this year have shown, consistently brings people together in a tweeting, texting, TiVo-ing country where viewing habits get more fragmented by the day. “For a sport at the height of its popularity to selfdestruct by lacking the will and creativity to solve economic problems would be the height of folly,” agent Leigh Steinberg said. “Who wants to be the person to kill this golden goose?” Sunday’s spectacle offered up yet another example of why America loves this game so much. Led by Rodgers’ pinpoint passing, the Packers hurried to a 21-3 lead and looked like they were ready to run away. But the Steelers, the NFL’s most successful franchise with six Lombardi trophies, refused to quit. They pulled within 28-25 midway through the fourth quarter and had the ball, trailing by six and needing to go 87 yards to win the game. Only when Ben Roethlisberger threw three straight incompletions in the final minute were the Steelers’ hopes over. Green Bay brought its fourth Lombardi Trophy back to the Frozen Tundra and its first since 1997, when Brett Favre was every cheesehead’s favorite quarterback. “Vince Lombardi is coming home to Green Bay,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, when he handed the trophy, named after the legendary Green Bay coach, to the Packers. Will we see this kind of celebration again next February? In all the pregame hyperbole, each side insisted they wanted that. But they are far apart on how to get it done. Owners say it’s time to pocket more money for a league that hasn’t started a stadium project in more than five years. They want a bigger slice of the roughly $9 billion in revenue, a rookie wage scale and to increase the regular season by two games to 18. The players think those two extra games will cause an exponential rise in injuries and don’t want to give back any percentage of the revenue pool, a massive slice of which comes from the networks, which combine to pay around $4 billion a year to televise the NFL. In an interview on Fox on Sunday, Goodell said the owners are committed to finding a solution and that a negotiating session between the owners and players the day before was “beneficial.” “My focus is on the next three or four weeks,” Goodell said. “I’ve often said, our agreement expires on March 4th. We have to use that period of time to reach an agreement that’s fair for the players, fair for the clubs, and allows our great game to grow for our fans.” Not doing so could stop the show after another tight, exciting Super Bowl that closed one of the most riveting seasons in recent memory. It was a rough week for Dallas, where back-toback snowstorms wreaked havoc and led to six injuries from ice that fell from Cowboys Stadium, which led to the seating debacle. Flights into Big D were canceled, traffic was snarled and some of the pregame parties were scrapped. Still, there were 103,219 fans on hand and maybe 100 million-plus watching on TV — where 30-second commercials went for as much as $3 million — as they saw the closing chapter to a heck of a season. It began with the eminently watchable TV program, “Hard Knocks,” that documented the New York Jets and their foul-mouthed coach, Rex Ryan, as they made their way through training camp. It continued with a contentious debate about player safety, a result of the NFL’s early season decision to ramp up enforcement of rules that restrict helmet-to-helmet hits and other “illegal” tackles on defenseless receivers coming over the middle. Much as the NFL tries to rein it in, though, the violence certainly draws a lot of fans to the game. But it’s more than that. In 2010, there were scandals (the Broncos were caught videotaping an opponent’s practice), soap operas and sad endings (See, anything related to Favre). There were feuds (Ryan vs. the Patriots), flareups (a brawl between Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan) and firings (Broncos, 49ers, Cowboys and Vikings). There were great performances (Michael Vick and Tom Brady) and great endings (Philly beating the Giants on DeSean Jackson’s last-play punt return for a touchdown) and, finally, a Super Bowl pitting two of the great franchises in NFL history that lived up to the billing. “This is a great day to be great, baby,” Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings said. But this could be the last uplifting day the NFL sees for a while. There’s no getting away from the labor strife that looms. “Given the success of the game, given the money available, it doesn’t make sense to me that a compromise solution can’t be found,” said the NFL’s outside labor lawyer, Bob Batterman. In a recent poll by The Associated Press, people who identified themselves as NFL fans were asked which side they sympathized with. Eleven percent said the owners, 25 percent said the players and 64 percent said neither. The takeaway message: They simply want their football. On Sunday, it was easy to see why.

Packers’ backup Nelson steps up in Super Bowl By Richards Rosenblatt The Associated Press
ARLINGTON, Texas — Jordy Nelson sure didn’t play like a backup. The third-year pro had the game of a lifetime in the Super Bowl, catching nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in the Green Bay Packers 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday’s Super Bowl. The kid from Kansas State was all over the field, snaring passes from Aaron Rodgers and catching a 29yarder in the right corner of the end zone to give the Packers a 7-0 lead. He also caught a 38-yarder from Rodgers to the Steelers’ 3 to set up the TD that put the Packers ahead 28-17 early in the fourth quarter. When all was done, he had set a Packers’ record for receiving yards in a Super Bowl set by Max McGee, who had 138 yards in the first Super Bowl. Nelson and James Jones are the backup for Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, but Nelson was the go-to guy in the biggest game of all. The 6-foot-2, 217-pound Nelson had 55 catches and four TDs his first two years, but had 45 this season and another 12 in the playoffs coming into the Super Bowl. On his TD catch, he said, “Aaron gave me a little signal if it was press (coverage). It was actually a screen play but he checked to go to a route. That’s what we did.” And winning it all? “It’s unbelievable,” he said. “It’s incredible.” Vince, here comes the trophy There was no shortage of the Vince Lombardi Trophy coming back to Green Bay lines after the Packers’ 31-25 win over the Steelers in the Super Bowl. Holding the trophy named for the great Packers’ coach, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told club president Mark Murphy: “And now, the smallest city in the league has won the biggest game. ... Vince Lombardi is coming home to Green Bay.” Murphy saluted the fans, gave a thumbs up and said as he held the trophy: “The Vince Lombardi Trophy is coming back to Green Bay.” Added Packers coach Mike McCarthy: “We had some bumps in the third quarter, but it was just a tremendous effort and the Vince Lombardi Trophy is coming back to Green Bay.” The Packers won their fourth Super Bowl, and first since beating the Patriots in 1997. The first two Super Bowl wins came under Lombardi in the first two games, in 1967 and 1968. Rooney reaction It’s rare that the Rooney family returns from these Super Bowl trips without a little extra something in their suitcases — specifically, the Lombardi Trophy. On their team’s eighth trip to the Super Bowl, the Rooneys came up short for only the second time. They still hold the record with six championships. “Just said, ‘thanks,’ ” Steelers president Art Rooney II said when asked what he told the players. “You know, they worked hard, we appreciated the effort they put in all year. They got us close to winning a seventh championship and that’s pretty impressive.” By doing things “The Steeler Way,” the Rooneys have built what is argu-
Cowboys Stadium drops ball on temporary seats ARLINGTON, Texas — In their zeal to set a Super Bowl attendance record, the NFL and Jerry Jones overlooked one important detail: Making sure all the temporary seats inside mammoth Cowboys Stadium had been inspected and were ready for the fans. A week plagued by poor weather took an embarrassing turn Sunday when the league had to find replacement seats for 850 fans. The NFL also scrambled to find a place for another 400 people to sit inside Jones’ $1.2 billion palace and couldn’t find any with a view of the field. “This is absolutely ridiculous,” said Glen Long, a Pittsburgh Steelers season-ticket holder who flew in for the game from Baltimore. “That would be fraud anywhere in the world if you sold tickets to an event that you knew you didn’t have. That’s just wrong.” Actually, the seats had been installed in six temporary sections, but they went up so late that the fire marshal didn’t have time to inspect them, according to a police officer standing near an affected area who wouldn’t give his name and an explanation of the situation provided to several fans. The officer said the winter storms that struck Dallas earlier had set back work on the temporary seats. That didn’t matter to fans who felt they had been deceived by the league and Jones, the Dallas Cowboys owner who had hoped some 105,000 people would watch the game inside and outside the stadium. To bolster the crowd, there were $200 tickets that provided nothing more than a chance to watch the game on video screens set up in outdoor plazas. That didn’t work out, either: Attendance was announced at 103,219, just short of the record 103,985 who turned out at the Rose Bowl for the 1980 Super Bowl. As for those 400 fans, not even a hefty refund offer from the NFL was enough to satisfy them for losing their seats. The league said it would pay back triple the face value — $2,400 for the $800 tickets. “We don’t want that,” said Odett Karam, a Green Bay Packers fan who flew in from California. “We just want to get into the game. We just want to see the game.” — The Associated Press
ably the most stable franchise in the NFL over the past four decades. A win Sunday would have given the Steelers three titles in six years and would have put them close to cementing another dynasty — one to pair with the one that captured four titles in six years in the 1970s. Could still happen. “I feel good about our organization,” Rooney said. “We lost to a good team and a great franchise. My hat’s off to those guys for what they accomplished this year. We just fell a little bit short.” Super Packers With Super Bowl win No. 4, the Packers moved into fourth place for most wins in the championship game that began in 1967. The Steelers hold the record with six Super Bowl wins, and have now lost twice in the NFL title game. Green Bay has a total of 12 championships with the eight they won before the Super Bowl era. The Bears are next with nine overall NFL titles. Also, Green Bay becomes the second No. 6 seed to win the Super Bowl, joining the Steelers who won in 2006. Win, win for Wynn Even before his Packers won the Super Bowl, defensive lineman Jarius Wynn had reason to celebrate: He was present for the birth of his son at a Dallas-area hospital Sunday morning, just hours before the game. Wynn, a sixth-round draft pick in 2009, was released Sept. 4 before the start of this season. But he was resigned Sept. 14 after a season-ending knee injury to defensive lineman Justin Harrell. Wynn has played sporadically in a reserve role since rejoining the Packers. He played in the Packers’ first two playoff games, but was inactive for the NFC championship game at Chicago. Meet the Steelers...and Packers A few hours before the Super Bowl inside cavernous Cowboys Stadium, actor Owen Wilson displayed a few nifty moves, eluding
a “defender” and catching a pass in the end zone, then spiking the ball over his shoulder. Asked who he was picking, Wilson said he liked the Steelers: “I have the Steelers in my pool,” he said to cheers, followed by some boos from the sparse crowd beginning to fill the stadium. “But I can see the Packers winning, too.” Singer Sheila E was mostly booed for picking the Packers. Towels or cheese Brothers Charles and Steven Friedman had a bit of a social experiment going on outside Cowboys Stadium before kickoff. The souvenir sellers were hawking Terrible Towels at one side of the table, foam cheeseheads on the other. Which are the hotter items? “Terrible Towels, by far,” Charles said. “I stopped counting the cases a while ago.” But maybe this wasn’t a fair fight. The towels — easy to carry, fold into a suitcase and wave in the stands — were going for $15 a piece. The cheeseheads — bulky foam that must be worn on the head for best effect — were double that price. The brothers were donating part of the proceeds to charity. You’re the man Vikings safety Madieu Williams is the Walter Payton Man of the Year. The award recognizes a player’s off-the-field community service as well as play on the field. Williams currently is in the Persian Gulf on a goodwill tour with U.S. service members. The announcement was made Sunday at Cowboys Stadium before the Super Bowl. “It is a tremendous honor to win this award named after Walter Payton, one of the greatest men to ever play in the National Football League,” said Williams, surrounded by service members in Iraq. “I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to accept the award, but it’s an even greater honor to be here with the 4th Infantry Division and Task Force Iron Horse.”

THE BULLETIN â€˘ Monday, February 7, 2011 D5
Packers Continued from D1 â€œItâ€™s what I dreamt about as a little kid watching Joe Montana and Steve Young,â€? Rodgers said, â€œand we just won the Super Bowl.â€? The Packers QB threw for three touchdowns, two to Greg Jennings, and the Packers (146) overcame even more injuries, building a 21-3 lead, then hanging on to become the second No. 6 seed to win the championship. Coincidentally, the 2005 Steelers were the other. Rodgers threw for 304 yards, including a 29-yard touchdown to Jordy Nelson, who had nine catches for 140 yards to make up for three big drops. Rodgers found Jennings, normally his favorite target, for 21- and 8-yard scores. â€œWow! Itâ€™s a great day to be great, baby,â€? Jennings said. Then the favored Packers held on as Pittsburgh (14-5) stormed back. â€œWeâ€™ve been a team thatâ€™s overcome adversity all year,â€? Jennings said, who noted injuries to Charles Woodson and Donald Driver. â€œOur head captain goes down, emotional in the locker room. Our No. 1 receiver goes down, more emotions are going, flying in the locker room. But we find a way to bottle it up and exert it all out here on the field.â€? Few teams have been as resourceful as these Packers, who couldnâ€™t wait to touch the trophy honoring their greatest coach â€” and their title. Several of them kissed it as Cowboys great Roger Staubach walked through a line of green and gold. â€œVince Lombardi is coming back to Green Bay,â€? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said as the silver prize was handed to the team. After sitting for three seasons, Rodgers took the Packers to two late-season victories just to make the playoffs as a wild card. Then he guided them to wins at Philadelphia, Atlanta and archrival Chicago before his biggest achievement â€” against a Pittsburgh team ranked second in defense. They barely survived a sensa-
Postseason Continued from D1 So forgive Combs if he is not shedding any tears over the Oregon School Activities Associationâ€™s new postseason wrestling format, which actually decreases the number of wrestlers who will advance to state championship tournaments. Gone are league tournaments at the Class 6A, 5A and 4A levels, replaced by four regional competitions in each classification. While more wrestlers will advance from each state-qualifying tournament â€” four wrestlers from each weight class at the regional meet will move on to state â€” fewer wrestlers overall will compete at the state championships in the new format. In the past, some brackets included more than 20 wrestlers in each weight class. Now, with the four-regional format, each bracket will be made up of exactly 16 wrestlers. â€œIn some way it opens some doors for us,â€? says Combs, whose team will wrestle in the Class 5A Special District 4 regional this weekend at Willamette High in Eugene. The regional tournament for Mountain View, Bend High and Summit will be made up of teams from Ashland, Eagle Point, Marshfield of Coos Bay, Springfield, and Eugene schools Churchill, Marist, Willamette and North Eugene. With the smaller brackets, the OSAAâ€™s five state championship tournaments â€” 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, and 2A/1A â€” will be shortened from three days to two. The 2011 state championships are scheduled for Feb. 25 and 26 at Portlandâ€™s Memorial Coliseum. â€œWe were trying to protect the integrity of the sport,â€? Combs says about Oregon high school wrestling coachesâ€™ decision last offseason to reconfigure the state meet. â€œIn the past couple of years, with the old way, the state tournament was really watered down. â€Ś With only four regions, the best kids will be there.â€? Also this weekend, Redmond

But Pittsburgh failed to get its third championship in six years with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisbergerâ€™s season began with a four-game suspension for violating the NFLâ€™s personal conduct policy. It ended with Roethlisberger standing on the sideline, his head down, hands on his hips, feeling something he never experienced: defeat in a Super Bowl. â€œI feel like I let the city of Pittsburgh down, the fans, my coaches and my teammates,â€? Roethlisberger said, â€œand itâ€™s not a good feeling.â€? Not even a decidedly blackand-gold crowd, with Terrible Towels swirling throughout the $1.2 billion stadium, could make a difference for the mistakeprone Steelers. Their two biggest defensive stars â€” Defensive Player of the Year safety Troy Polamalu and outside linebacker James Harrison â€” were virtually invisible. The offense didnâ€™t seem to miss outstanding rookie center Maurkice Pouncey, who was out with an ankle injury, but Roeth-

lisberger only occasionally made key plays until the second half. The biggest plays were left to Rodgers, Nick Collins with a 37-yard interception return for a TD, Jennings, Nelson, and the rest of the guys in green and gold. In the end, they gave coach Mike McCarthy his first Super Bowl victory against the team he rooted for while growing up in Pittsburgh. Besides Lombardi, Mike Holmgren won a title in 1997 with Favre. â€œThis is a great group of men here, a lot of character,â€? Rodgers said. â€œWe went through a lot together.â€? Even on Sunday, they did. Woodson went out late in the first half with a collarbone injury, a few plays after Driver was sidelined with an ankle problem. â€œIt was very difficult to watch,â€? Woodson said, â€œbut it feels good now.â€? Woodson saw the Steelers, who rallied from a 21-7 halftime hole against Baltimore three weeks ago, show the same resilience. A 37-yard catch and run by Antwaan Randle El â€” an almost forgotten figure during his return season with just 22 receptions â€” sparked a quick 77-yard drive. Hines Ward, the 2006 Super Bowl MVP, had 39 yards on three catches during the series, including an 8-yard TD when he completely fooled Jarrett Bush. A quick defensive stop and a 50-yard drive to Rashard Mendenhallâ€™s 8-yard touchdown run made it 21-17. But with Pittsburgh driving for perhaps its first lead of the game, Mendenhall was stripped at the Green Bay 33 by Clay Matthews â€” one of the few plays the All-Pro linebacker made. The Packers recovered, and Rodgers hit Jennings for 8 yards and the winning points. Pittsburghâ€™s last gasp was on a 25-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace and a brilliant pitchout by Roethlisberger to Randle El for a 2-point conversion. Mason Crosby added a 23-yard field goal for the Packers and the Steelers had no more comebacks in them. â€œYou play to be world champions,â€? Matthews said, â€œand thatâ€™s what we are today.â€?
made up of 16-wrestler brackets, the 2A/1A state meet will use brackets of eight wrestlers.

will compete in the Class 6A Special District 4 regional in Roseburg, along with Crater of Central Point, Grants Pass, North Medford, Sheldon of Eugene, South Eugene, South Medford, Thurston of Springfield, and the host Indians. â€œIt will be a little bit more equitable,â€? Redmond coach Nathan Stanley says about the new regional format. â€œBefore, only three kids qualified at each weight and we had seven teams in the Central Valley Conference. Now weâ€™ve got four spots (at each weight class) and nine teams.â€? While moving to a regional that includes powerhouse Roseburg may not seem like the best situation for Redmond, Stanley says the new setup for the state championships will benefit wrestling fans. â€œThere was so much fat in the tournament before,â€? explains Stanley, who says college coaches have told him in the past that the first day of the tournament was a waste of their time in terms of evaluating talent because of so many early mismatches. â€œNow in the first round,â€? says Stanley, â€œyouâ€™ll have some real tough matches.â€? Looking at the rest of Central Oregonâ€™s wrestling teams, all of the areaâ€™s Class 4A teams will be at the same regional meet this year. Crook County, Madras, Sisters and La Pine are scheduled to compete at the Class 4A Special District 2 regional in Ontario against Baker, McLoughlin of Milton-Freewater, La Grande and the host Tigers on Feb. 18 and 19. Culver and Gilchrist will wrestle Feb. 19 in Chiloquin at the Class 2A/1A Special District 3 regional, from which the top two placers at each weight will advance to state. While the 6A, 5A and 4A state championships are
Qualifications for competing at the OSAAâ€™s state swim meet are the same as for the last four years â€” district winners automatically advance to state and at-large bids are awarded to the next-fastest times â€” but some Central Oregon teams will face different opponents than in years past. In Class 6A, Redmond will swim at a district meet in Salem with its old Central Valley Conference rivals. No change there. But in Class 5A, Bendâ€™s Juniper Swim & Fitness Center will host the 5A Special District 1 meet, which will be made up of teams from Bend High, Mountain View, Summit and Ashland. Gone from the old IMC is traditionally strong Pendleton, as well as Hermiston. Central Oregon teams Sisters and Madras, both of which are in Class 4A, are scheduled to compete at two different 4A/3A/2A/ 1A district meets. The Outlaws will swim at the Class 4A/3A/ 2A/1A Special District 3 meet in Albany against Blanchet Catholic of Salem, Cascade of Turner, Central from Independence, Creswell, Jefferson, Junction City, Philomath, Stayton and Sweet Home. The White Buffaloes are set to host Baker, Corbett, Gladstone, La Grande, Milwaukieâ€™s La Salle, Molalla, North Marion, Portland Lutheran, Riverdale, Portlandâ€™s Roosevelt and Marshall, and Beavertonâ€™s Valley Catholic at the Madras Aquatic Center for the Class 4A/3A/2A/ 1A Special District 2 meet.

fist raised as he clocked in at 2 minutes, 34.74 seconds. That gave him another 933 points for his new record total: 6,568 points. â€œI made some bars in the pole vault on my third attempt when I really needed them,â€? said the 23year-old Eaton, who the previous week defeated reigning Olympic decathlon champion Bryan Clay and 2009 world decathlon cham-
pion Trey Hardee in the Millrose Multi Challenge at the Millrose Games in New York. â€œI also think this shows that I have a lot of room to improve,â€? Eaton said. â€œI had a bad high jump, I took off way behind the board in the long jump, I could have run better in the 1,000 meters, and although the shot put was a big personal best (47-5), I know I can keep getting better.â€?

For your registration fee of $45 to $70, depending on when you sign up, you also get access to multiple rest stops stocked with food and drink, along with mechanical support, sag vehicles that can provide assistance, and still more food at the finish. “They really put on a show with the food,” Klingler says. A century ride held the same day in Chico, Calif. — the Chico Wildflower Century — is another tour that offers some exotic views to the Central Oregon cyclist’s eye. “It’s a beautiful ride, and if someone’s not feeling like they’re in great shape, they can do the 65(-mile route),” says Barb Becker, 61, a mechanic at Sunnyside Sports in Bend. Becker has ridden the Chico Wildflower about five times. If you are interested in the Chico Wildflower, don’t be confused: The similarly named Wildflower Century tour takes place the day before the Chico ride farther south in San Luis Obispo County, but that tour has already sold out for 2011. Becker, who describes herself as a serious but recreational rider, says the Chico Wildflower has “enough hills that you have to take it seriously,” including one steep climb. Klingler, who has also ridden the Chico tour, says riders get to traverse “really cool, little skinny country roads” with no traffic. The registration fee for the Chico Wildflower is $65 and in-
cludes all-you-can-eat rest stops and a post-ride dinner. For those who might like to stay closer to home and tour Oregon’s Willamette Valley in all its springtime splendor, check out the Strawberry Century. The annual tour, popular with Central Oregon cyclists, is based out of Lebanon and will take place June 12 this year. Byron Oberst, 61 and of Bend, cycled the Strawberry Century’s 72-mile route last year and says the ride is scenic, well marked and supported, and provides rolling, rural terrain. “You go through these wonderful grass fields,” recalls Oberst, a retired anesthesiologist, “and at that time of the year, the camas lilies are out, and some of the western buttercups, and so there were these fields of wildflowers that were pretty spectacular.” The Strawberry Century also offers a full century route and a 35-mile option. Another Willamette Valley possibility for those who might not be ready for a full century is the Monster Cookie Metric Century, a 62-mile ride that takes participants from the State Capitol Mall area in Salem out to Champoeg State Park and back. Oberst says the ride is flat and well supported. Normally, the Monster Cookie Metric Century is held the last Sunday in April, but will take place May 1 this year to avoid falling on Easter. (For more information on the Monster Cookie Metric Century, go to http://www.salembicycleclub.org/ and click on “Event Rides.”) If you are willing to drive a few hours more for some spectacular scenery, consider America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride. This tour, which circles Lake Tahoe on June 5 — allows riders to traverse parts of both California
C YC L ING C EN T R A L and Nevada in a single ride for $115. Jessica Williams, 39 and of Bend, rode America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride about five years ago and says it “absolutely” lived up to its name. At the route’s higher elevations, which reach about 7,100 feet, snow can linger on the roads, she says, and riders also pass right along the lake shore during one stretch. Williams, who owns and operates the Pine Ridge Inn, offers proof that winter weather should be no deterrent to preparing for this kind of event: She lived in Minnesota while training for America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride and still prepped outside. “Anyone can do it as long as you train and prepare,” she explains. “That’s definitely a beautiful ride to do. Sometimes views like that, that are so beautiful, are actually inspiring, too. You kind of forget that you’re not feeling that great, because it’s so pretty, to have that distraction.” Besides doing the proper training, Klingler urges interested riders to sign up as soon as possible. Many of these tours cap their fields and often sell out. “You can’t wait until a month before the ride,” he says. “You won’t get in.” If these tours have whetted your appetite for some organized riding and you can’t wait until the spring, there’s always the Chilly Hilly, a ride around Bainbridge Island near Seattle that packs 2,635 feet of climbing into 33 miles. The Chilly Hilly takes place Feb. 27, giving you exactly 20 days of saddle time remaining. Time to get going. Amanda Miles can be reached at 5 4 1 -3 8 3 -0 3 9 3 or at amiles@ bendbulletin.com.

CYCLING INSIDER | GEAR REVIEW The Bulletin interviews a Central Oregon cyclist as part of our weekly “Cycling Central” feature, whose rotating topics include rider profiles, safety tips, local ride recommendations and gear reviews. The bike lock has yet to be made that could be considered impenetrable. Yet local experts say you can secure your bike in such a way that it deters all but the most determined would-be thieves. According to the Bend Police Department, more than 220 bikes with a total value of nearly $190,000 were reported stolen in 2010, which marked an increase in stolen bikes of nearly 30 percent over 2009. The number of bicycle thefts may actually be much higher, says Steve Esselstyn, community liaison for the Bend PD, who believes that the majority of bike thefts go unreported. I asked Bend resident and REI bike shop employee Rob Hartsock — a longtime bike rider, racer and commuter who has had his share of bikes stolen while attending college in Eugene — for tips on how to keep a bicycle safe from theft. A lock, he pointed out, is a deterrent, not a fail-safe device. “You’re buying time,” said Hartsock, an action-sports specialist for REI, which sells numerous types of bike locks ranging in price from $5 to $95. “You’re making it harder for the criminal to make the effort to get your bike.” Therefore, the greater the time commitment to snag the bicycle, the less risk of theft. U-locks and cable locks are
Rob Kerr / The Bulletin
A four-inch U-lock, left, and a 6-inch U-lock, right, surround a 3⁄8 inch cable, center left, and a 5mm cable. the two most common types of bicycle locks. U-locks are sturdier and more difficult for a wouldbe thief to sever. They also tend to be heavier to tote around and pricier to purchase, and they are only long enough to secure a bike’s frame to a rack or other stationary object. They come in varying lengths and widths. A beefier “U” can weigh up to four pounds, but is also more difficult to cut. A cable lock is lighter and less expensive but offers less protection against theft. Cables also come in different lengths and widths. Longer is better for those who want to thread the cable through both wheels, and thicker (3⁄8 -inch versus 5 millimeter) offers better protection from theft. “The beefier cable is more steel to cut through and you’re buying time,” Hartsock explained. “It takes a long time and (a lot of) effort and the right tools
to cut through that cable.” Locking mechanisms are operated by either keys or combination. Hartsock said he believes key locks offer better protection from tampering. “That said,” he continued, “if you lose your key it could be a problem.” Some locks allow the owner to set the combination, while others feature combinations of letters rather than numerals. “It’s easier to remember the name of your son than a random fourdigit number,” Hartsock said. Hartsock offered these tips for lowering your risk of bicycle theft: • Always secure a bicycle to an immovable object, such as a bike rack or a metal pole. Merely locking the bike to itself or to other bikes invites thieves to put the bike in the truck “and do the dirty work at home,” said Hartsock. • After the bike is locked, take
with you any items that can be stolen, such as a saddlebag, water bottles, or even the seatpost and saddle if they are secured by quick release. If possible, remove the front wheel if it is not secured by a cable lock. “Not everyone can bring their bike inside their workplace,” Hartsock observed. “But if you can just bring your front wheel, toss it underneath your desk, then it makes that ‘grabbing-and-going’ part of theft so much harder to pull off.” • Buy an inexpensive bike at a garage sale or thrift store for commuting around town, and leave valuable bikes at home. And remember that most bike thefts take place during the summer. • Use a combination of a Ulock (a good model from the OnGuard or Kryptonite brands runs $30, Hartsock said) along with a six- or seven-foot-long
3 ⁄8 -inch cable, which retails for $10. “Loop the cable through the frame and the rear and front wheel and … to the U-lock, which is secured to a post or some other type of stationary object,” he explained. “That six-foot length gives me a lot of flexibility to anchor everything together.” The Bend Police Department urges bicycle owners to register their bikes at no charge with the Bend PD. “You get a sticker that goes on your bike, and that helps us get people’s property back,” records supervisor Dixi Angus told me. She went on to say that the
BendSpineandPain.com (541) 647-1646
bike’s serial number goes into a nationwide database, “so if your bike is stolen in Bend and it’s taken to Eugene, we can get your bike back.” Angus recommends that, at the very least, cyclists keep records of the serial numbers on their bikes, which helps authorities to locate bikes and reunite them with the rightful owner. —Heather Clark
