Since talking doesn’t pay, psychiatrists simply write prescriptions By Gardiner Harris New York Times News Service

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. — Alone with his psychiatrist, the patient confided that his newborn had serious health problems, his distraught wife was screaming at him and he had started drinking again. With his life and second marriage falling apart, the man said he needed help. But the psychiatrist, Dr. Donald Levin, stopped him and said: “Hold it. I’m not your therapist. I could adjust your medications, but I don’t think that’s appropriate.” Like many of the nation’s 48,000 psychiatrists, Levin, in large part because of changes in how much insurance will pay, no longer provides talk therapy, the form of psychiatry popularized by Sigmund Freud that dominated the profession for decades. Instead, he prescribes medication, usually after a brief consultation with each patient. So Levin sent the man away with a referral to a less costly therapist and a personal crisis unexplored and unresolved. Medicine is rapidly changing in the United States from a cottage industry to one dominated by large hospital groups and corporations, but the new efficiencies can be accompanied by a telling loss of intimacy between doctors and patients. And no specialty has suffered this loss more profoundly than psychiatry. Trained as a traditional psychiatrist at Michael Reese Hospital, a sprawling Chicago medical center that has since closed, Levin, 68, first established a private practice in 1972, when talk therapy was in its heyday.

Ugandan adoptee: If all goes to plan, Ester will soon join her new family in Powell Butte

A world away, but a home here By Erik Hidle The Bulletin

Jenay and Charlie Brewer of Powell Butte have six children, five of whom they have known since birth. They have known the newest member for almost a year but are still waiting for her to come home. Nine-year-old Ester Brewer is in Uganda, waiting for one last legal hurdle to be cleared before she gets to join her new family. The Brewers are in the final step of adopting Ester, an orphan from Jinja, Uganda, who has never seen snow, never met some of her brothers or sisters, and never seen an indoor grocery store. Still, she’s a Brewer. The story started in May 2010 when Jenay and Charlie went on a

mission trip to the country to help an orphanage with roots in Central Oregon. Adoption was not in the plan. But when they arrived at the orphanage, the plan changed. “God just seemed to put Charlie and Ester together,” said Jenay. “When we went over there, we talked about adoption but we knew it wasn’t really an option. But after meeting Ester, Charlie said to me, ‘We’ve got to do something for her.’” Then in June, after they had returned from the mission trip, Charlie looked at his wife and said, “We’re going to adopt her.” Charlie said he knew instantly that Ester should be a Brewer.

Working to create a place for orphans By Erik Hidle The Bulletin

Prineville resident Kathy Vaughn founded Redeemer House Orphanage in October 2008 after visiting Uganda and seeing firsthand the suffering of children in the country. After running the nonprofit organization from Prineville, Vaughn decided that wasn’t enough. She quit her nursing job and moved to the orphanage to work full-time in March 2010. Ester Brewer is the first child to be adopted from the orphanage. Vaughn said she is thrilled she will be able to see the girl again when she returns to Central Oregon for a visit this summer. “I can’t begin to tell you how excited everyone at the orphanage is about Esther’s adoption,” Vaughn said. “The kids are all so happy for her, and it gives them hope that they too will someday have a family. As for me, I sometimes find myself almost in tears that our first adoption is almost complete, and a dear little girl from Uganda that I love so much is going to have a wonderful family to love her forever.” Vaughn said the orphanage cares for 23 children from 2 to 14 years old.

SALEM — If there is one point that nearly everyone involved with the state’s land use planning can agree on, it’s that Oregon is a diverse state — zoning requirements that make sense in the Willamette Valley could leave Jefferson County farmers with acres of unusable land. Some lawmakers are hoping House Bill 2997, which would create five land use planning commissions throughout the state, would give locals more control. Those in favor of the idea said ruIN THE ral Oregon, in particular Central LEGISLATURE and Eastern Oregon, aren’t getting the representation from the state they need to create muchneeded jobs. Inside “Salem should not be making • An in-depth the decisions for Bend or Klamath look at the Falls or La Pine on land use,” said Legislature in Rep. Bill Garrard, R-Klamath Salem Week, Falls, who is backing the bill. Page B1 Opponents said the idea would only create more bureaucracy and increase costs. It’s an effort to further weaken the rules that protect Oregon’s farmland from turning into sprawling subdivisions, they say. “This is just part of a broad attack on the land use planning system we’re seeing this session,” said Eric Stachon, communications director with 1,000 Friends of Oregon, a nonprofit that focuses on land use planning. Stachon said lawmakers are using the economy as an excuse to attack the land use planning system. He maintained the system doesn’t need to be dismantled to find the balance between protecting the landscape and creating jobs. Blaming the decrease of economic development on land use planning doesn’t make sense, he said. See Land use / A5

Disruptive from the get-go, Netflix now fights for TV’s future By Cecilia Kang The Washington Post

By any measure, Netflix is having a marquee year. It has 20 million subscribers, way up from 12 million just a year ago. Its stock has tripled in that time. During periods of peak Internet use, a full fifth of all American bandwidth consumption is people watching movies on Netflix.com. But the more that consumers embrace the movies-at-home ethos of Netflix, the more uncomfortable major players in the entertainment industry have become. Now Netflix, a secretive company known more for the laid-back attitude of its founder than AP for sharp elile photo bows, has emerged at the center of a titanic clash over the future of television.

One morning in early January, David Murdock awoke to an unsettling sensation. At first he didn’t recognize it and then he couldn’t believe it, because for decades he maintained what was, in his

immodest estimation, perfect health. But now there was this undeniable imperfection, a scratchiness and swollenness familiar only from the distant past. He had a sore throat. “I never have anything go wrong,” he said later. “Never have a backache. Never

have a headache. Never have anything else.” This would make him a lucky man no matter his age. Because he is 87, it makes him an unusually robust specimen, which is what he must be if he is to defy the odds and live as long as he intends to. He wants to reach 125, and

sees no reason he can’t, provided that he continues eating the way he has for the last quarter century: with a messianic correctness that he believes can, and will, ward off major disease and minor ailment alike. See Murdock / A7

To quiet critics, Romney puts focus on jobs By Jeff Zeleny New York Times News Service

BARTLETT, N.H. — As Mitt Romney travels the country lining up contributors and influential Republicans for a second presidential bid, he is presenting himself as a ready-to-lead executive, gambling that a fluency in economic matters distinguishes him from other candidates and can help overcome concerns about authenticity that dogged his first race. Romney makes the case, in private meetings with business Mitt Romney owners and in appearances like a dinner speech here Saturday, that the halting economic recovery — even after solid job growth in February, the unemployment rate remains at 8.9 percent — provides a compelling rationale that he is the strongest candidate to create jobs and take on President Barack Obama. “I like President Obama,” Romney said, “but he doesn’t have a clue how jobs are created.” The message is well-suited to Romney’s background as a successful executive and former governor, as well as the man who rescued the 2002 Winter Games from financial trouble. But it may also be his best opportunity to try to steer around criticism over the health care plan he created in Massachusetts, which to many Republicans looks distressingly similar to the federal law signed by Obama last year. And it offers him a chance to sidestep the concerns of social conservatives, some of whom question his commitment to their causes and are uncomfortable with his Mormon faith. As he moves closer to formally opening his campaign, Romney has taken a far different approach than he did the last time. To avoid the risk of overexposure and early scrutiny, he is operating in a cautious, low-key fashion, building allies among Republicans by doling out money to candidates from his political action committee and testing themes on donors and other supporters with limited news coverage. Romney is trying to present a more relaxed image to combat impressions that he is unapproachable and stiff. He has not been seen in a necktie for months — not in television appearances, meetings with donors or political dinners, including the one Saturday evening, where he was one of the few men wearing an open-collared shirt. He turned up in the pit area of the Daytona 500 last month, mingling with race car drivers while wearing a Bass Pro Shops shirt. And last week, Romney, who put his wealth four years ago around $200 million, walked into Tommy’s Barber Shop in an Atlanta strip mall for a haircut. (Aides sent out a picture of him in the barber’s chair via Twitter.) In the early maneuvering for the 2012 race, Romney has aimed his fire at Obama rather than any of his prospective Republican rivals, attacking the president as a weak leader who pursued a European-style biggovernment agenda for his first two years in office instead of focusing on jobs. “The president points out that he inherited an economic crisis,” Romney told about 300 people at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel. “He did, and he promptly made it worse. “The consequence is soaring numbers of Americans enduring unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies,” he continued. “This is the Obama Misery Index, and we’re not going to let the American people be fooled.”

Gadhafi and rebels both report gains

Ex-Egyptian minister pleads not guilty to graft charge

By Maggie Michael and Paul Schemm The Associated Press

TRIPOLI, Libya — Government forces in tanks rolled into the opposition-held city closest to Tripoli after blasting it with artillery and mortar fire, while rebels captured a key oil port and pushed toward Moammar Gadhafi’s hometown in a seesaw Saturday for both sides in the bloody battle for control of Libya. With the Gadhafi regime’s tanks prowling the center of the city of Zawiya, west of Tripoli, residents ferried the wounded from the fierce fighting in private cars to a makeshift clinic in a mosque, fearing that any injured taken to the militarycontrolled hospital “will be killed for sure,” one rebel said after nightfall. The rival successes — by Gadhafi’s forces in entering resistant Zawiya, and by the rebels in taking over the port of Ras Lanouf — signaled an increasingly long and violent battle that could last weeks or months and veered the country ever closer to civil war. Rebels in the east advanced from their eastern stronghold toward Sirte, setting the stage for fierce fighting with proGadhafi forces who hold sway in the tribal area. Western leaders focused on humanitarian aid instead of military intervention, and the Italian naval vessel Libra left from Catania, Sicily, for the rebel-held port of Benghazi in eastern Libya, with 25 tons of emergency aid, including milk, rice, blankets, emergency generators, water purifying devices and tents. It is due to arrive early Monday. The crisis in Libya has distinguished itself from the other uprisings sweeping the Arab world, with Gadhafi unleash-

A Libyan rebel who is part of the forces fighting Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi holds a rocket-propelled grenade launcher Saturday in the village of Bin Jawwad, west of the recently captured oil town of Ras Lanouf, eastern Libya. ing a violent crackdown against his political opponents, who themselves have taken up arms in their attempt to remove him from office after ruling the country for more than 41 years. Hundreds have been killed. Gadhafi has drawn international condemnation for his actions. President Barack Obama has insisted that Gadhafi must leave and said Washington was considering a full range of options, including the imposition of a “no-fly” zone over Libya.

The storming of Zawiya, a city of some 200,000 people just 30 miles west of Tripoli, began with a surprise dawn attack by pro-Gadhafi forces firing mortar shells and machine guns. “The number of people killed is so big. The number of the wounded is so big. The number of tanks that entered the city is big,” the rebel in Zawiya said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he feared government reprisal. The rebels vowed to keep up the fight in the city.

Bahrain opposition talks compromise The Washington Post MANAMA, Bahrain — A day after protesters chanting anti-government slogans packed downtown Manama, a key hard-line opposition leader said Saturday that he would be willing to make peace with the royal family — but only if it makes major concessions toward democracy.

Otherwise, protesters will look for new leaders, said Hassan Mushaima, a leader of the anti-government Haq society. When he returned to Bahrain from self-imposed exile in Britain a week ago, some feared that Mushaima would take an uncompromising stand against the government, fragmenting the opposition.

But in the interview, he appeared to leave the door open to an eventual settlement with the Khalifa royal family. Protesters “are looking for another regime … which can give them freedom,” Mushaima said. “If the people agreed with finishing our relationship with the family of the monarchy … I am going with the people.”

CAIRO — Egypt’s oncepowerful and feared interior minister, Habib el-Adly, pleaded not guilty Saturday to corruption charges in the first of what is expected to be a series of speedy, high-profile cases against ministers ousted with former President Hosni Mubarak. “That did not happen,” elAdly calmly said twice when the judge asked whether he had profited illegally from his office and laundered money. His appearance in court was an extraordinary sight in a country where el-Adly, until his Feb. 17 arrest, had controlled all police forces since he became interior minister in 1997. As if to underscore the change, hundreds of protesters in Cairo stormed a headquarters of the state security police. Protesters also took over or protested outside other security compounds around the country, with one center in Alexandria going up in flames Friday night. Disbanding the state security police is a central public demand. Egypt named Gen. Mansour el-Essawy its new interior minister Sunday, Reuters reported. The state news agency MENA quoted el-Essawy as saying his priorities included reinforcing security, which has been lax since the police forces melted away on Jan. 28. At the courthouse, the proceedings were dominated by often unruly lawyers, and the judge barked at the lawyers to remain orderly and postponed the case until April 2. Egypt’s interim military government took no chances with security, moving the proceedings to the criminal court of New Cairo, a modern suburb east of the city. Cameras were barred from the courtroom. Two tanks and two armored personnel carriers, along with at least 100 policemen, blocked the court’s entrance. El-Adly remains under investigation for unleashing the brutal efforts to crush the nonviolent protests that started in Cairo on Jan. 25, but that was not part of Saturday’s proceedings.

Organized labor hopes attacks help nurture comeback By Steven Greenhouse New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — When Wisconsin’s governor, Scott Walker, began his crusade against collective bargaining by public employees, his state’s unions seemed woefully outmatched. But Wisconsin’s beleaguered labor movement woke up and mobilized, through e-mail blasts, phone trees and Facebook, getting tens of thousands of supporters to rally in Madison against the legislation and surprising itself that it could muster such a show of force so quickly. For now, the two sides are at a stalemate, with protesters still swarming the Capitol and Democratic senators hiding in Illinois to deny the Republican majority the quorum needed to pass Walker’s bill. Meanwhile, governors in other states, most notably New Jersey and Ohio, have gone on the offensive against labor, deriding teachers unions, tenure and generous pensions. Organized labor has been on a long decline, but the recent attacks against it in Wisconsin and elsewhere have had a surprising result — they have energized the nation’s unions. Instead of just playing defense to protect benefits and bargaining rights, labor leaders are plotting some offense, with several saying Walker may have unwittingly nurtured a comeback by unions. As the Wisconsin showdown has unfolded, several recent national opinion polls have shown strong public backing for unions. And labor leaders say public awareness, especially among younger people, of what unions do has clearly increased. “The challenge for us is to take this moment and turn it into a movement,” said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. She acknowledged that she was not sure whether labor could accomplish that, but union leaders are quietly forging strategies to propel labor’s cause beyond the immediate statehouse battles. But many labor experts say that talk of a union resurgence is overly optimistic and that labor leaders may be flattering —

Michael Moore rallies Wisconsin protesters MADISON, Wis. — Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore urged Wisconsin residents Saturday to fight against Republican efforts to strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights, telling thousands of protesters that “Madison is only the beginning.” The crowd roared in approval as Moore implored demonstrators to keep up their struggle against Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s legislation, saying they’ve galvanized the nation against the wealthy elite and comparing their fight to Egypt’s revolt. He also thanked the 14 state Democratic senators who fled Wisconsin to block a vote on the bill, saying they’ll go down in history books. “We’re going to do this together. Don’t give up. Please don’t give up,” Moore told the protesters, who have swarmed the Capitol every day for close to three weeks. Police said there were “tens of thousands” of protesters but didn’t give a specific count. The vast majority of the crowd was pro-union. No one was arrested or cited. — The Associated Press

even deluding — themselves. Phil Kerpen, vice president for policy at Americans for Prosperity, a conservative advocacy group that backs Walker, said most workers see little value in joining a union. “It’s very unlikely that you’ll see any resurgence in private sector unionization,” he said, “because most workers are worried that unions will put their employer out of business and they’ll lose their job.” Indeed, in today’s tough economic environment, unions are often in the position of negotiating concessions rather than raises and better benefits.

Workers drill wells in 2010 as part of a project to clean up the groundwater at the site of a blowout at a natural gas well in northeast Wyoming’s Line Creek Valley. The blowout in 2006 created a plume of pollution, including benzene, that has residents worried about the long-term safety of their drinking water.

U.S. OIL DRILLING

Blowouts onshore: fear, pollution, uncertainty By Mead Gruver The Associated Press

LINE CREEK VALLEY, Wyo. — A gas well blowout in the shadow of Yellowstone National Park spewed a cloud of explosive natural gas, forced evacuations for miles around and polluted the drinking water — and the people who live in Wyoming’s Line Creek Valley still wonder four years later if their lives will return to normal. Days of panic after the Aug. 11, 2006, blowout at the Crosby 25-3 well have been replaced by lingering uncertainty about a pollution plume 225 feet underground. Now Windsor Energy is applying to drill a new well — inside Shoshone National Forest, less than a mile from the blowout — even though the blowout’s cause, to this day, remains a mystery. “It’s just speculation,” said Tom Doll, supervisor of the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which oversees oil and gas drilling. “I don’t have anything in the records that show what the cause was.” For some who live in this idyllic valley of cottonwoods cradled by sagebrush hills, where elk outnumber people and the occa-

sional grizzly bear saunters down from the Beartooth Mountains, enough is enough. “I didn’t really believe in that ‘not in my back yard’ philosophy. I felt that someone’s got to bite the bullet, so to speak,” Jim Sonderman, who retired to the valley in 2004, said of area gas drilling. “I’ve kind of changed my views on things.” Last year’s Deepwater Horizon disaster focused international attention on offshore blowouts. But they happen more often onshore, with dangerous effect: release of flammable and toxic gases, spills of oil and drilling fluid, and plumes of groundwater pollution. Most U.S. onshore blowouts occur at gas wells. Tracking them falls to the states. The Texas Railroad Commission lists nearly 100 blowouts in that state since 2006. Louisiana has had 96 onshore blowouts since 1987. Blowouts can result from the failure of blowout preventers, designed to seal off the well bore and block a surge of gas or pressurized oil from underground. They also can occur when the well bore ruptures, which is what happened at the Windsor Energy well here, a couple of miles from

the Montana line. Gaseous mud and gas condensate, a type of light sweet crude, bubbled up around the rig. A sulfurous smell wafted through the air. Firefighters raced up and down the valley telling people to shut off their pilot lights, round up their pets and livestock, and get out. “You could taste it. You could feel it on your skin. And it was just blowing. It was just like this huge cloud of gas coming off this pad,” said Deb Thomas, an environmentalist who lives less than a mile from the well. The blowout happened when the well’s steel casing and cement surrounding the casing ruptured underground. Documents filed with the state show that Nabors Drilling was to use 9 5/8-inch steel pipe reinforced by concrete inside a 12-inch drilling hole. “Typically that should have been enough to prevent such a thing from happening,” Doll said. It’s still unknown if the pipe or cement was defective or if human error was involved. In 2007, Windsor paid a $2,812.50 state fine as part of a settlement with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.

CRIMINAL ANTITRUST PROCEEDINGS

Court cases reveal complex web of airline price fixing By Alicia A. Caldwell The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — When the airline industry took a nose dive a decade ago, executives at global carriers scrambled to find a quick fix to avoid financial ruin. What they came up with, according to federal prosecutors, was a massive price-fixing scheme among airlines that artificially inflated passenger and cargo fuel surcharges between 2000 and 2006 to make up for lost profits. The airlines’ crimes cost U.S. consumers and businesses — mostly international passengers and cargo shippers — hundreds of millions of dollars, prosecutors say. But the airlines caught by the Justice Department have paid a hefty price in the five years since the government’s widespread investigation became public. To date, 19 executives have been charged with wrongdoing — four have gone to prison — and 21 airlines have coughed up more than $1.7 billion in fines in one of the largest criminal antitrust investigations in U.S. history. The court cases reveal a complex web of schemes between mostly international carriers willing to fix fees in lockstep with competitors for flights to and from the United States. Convicted airlines include British Airways, Korean Air, and Air France-KLM. No major U.S. carriers have been charged. The price-fixing unraveled largely because two airlines decided to come clean and turn in their co-conspirators. In late 2005, officials with German-based Lufthansa notified the Justice Department that the airline had been conspiring to set cargo surcharges. By Valentine’s

Bruce McCaffrey, one-time vice president of freight for the Americas at the Australian carrier Qantas, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to restrain trade. He was sentenced to six months in prison in 2008. He admitted working with other airlines to fix cargo fuel surcharges between 2000 and 2006. Keith Packer, a former senior manager of sales and marketing for British Airways, pleaded to conspiracy to restrain trade and was sentenced to eight months in

prison in 2008. He admitted joining the cargo conspiracy in 2002 and participating until February 2006. British Airways and Korean Air pleaded guilty to violating the Sherman act; each was fined $300 million in August 2007. British Airways admitted fixing cargo surcharges from 2002 to 2006 and passenger fuel surcharges from 2004 to 2006. Korean Air admitted fixing cargo and passenger surcharges from 2000 to 2006.

British Airways was one of the airlines convicted in a criminal antitrust case. Day 2006, FBI agents and their counterparts in Europe made the investigation public by raiding airline offices. After those raids, British-based Virgin Atlantic came forward about its role in a similar scheme to set fuel surcharges for passengers. Investigators eventually found a detailed paper trail laying out agreements, stretching back to 2000, to set passenger and cargo fuel surcharges The probe expanded to airlines doing business between the U.S. and Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. The Lufthansa and Virgin Atlantic mea culpas allowed them to take advantage of a Justice Department leniency program because they helped crack the conspiracies. Former Associate Attorney General Kevin O’Connor, who oversaw Justice’s antitrust division in the late 2000s, said he doesn’t know why they confessed, but the result “demonstrates the effectiveness of that amnesty program.” Now in private practice, O’Connor said companies that

confess for amnesty may be wisely trying to limit liabilities from illegal conduct. “Generally speaking, if they have an inkling they might get caught, they come in,” O’Connor said. “The theory might be that eventually these things will be exposed and why risk continuing.” Federal prosecutors and investigators declined to discuss details of the cases because they are still investigating. “Lufthansa Cargo fully cooperated with the investigation launched by DOJ,” Martin Riecken, Lufthansa’s director of corporate communications for the Americas said. Virgin Atlantic referred all questions to the Justice Department. Airlines and executives who didn’t come forward were charged with violating the Sherman Antitrust Act. Two former airline executives were sentenced to six months in prison; two others were ordered to prison for eight months. Charges are pending against 15 executives, nine of whom are considered fugitives.

Psychiatrists Continued from A1 Then, like many psychiatrists, he treated 50 to 60 patients in once- or twice-weekly talk-therapy sessions of 45 minutes each. Now, like many of his peers, he treats 1,200 people in mostly 15minute visits for prescription adjustments that are sometimes months apart. Then, he knew his patients’ inner lives better than he knew his wife’s; now, he often cannot remember their names. Then, his goal was to help his patients become happy and fulfilled; now, it is just to keep them functional. Levin has found the transition difficult. He now resists helping patients to manage their lives better. “I had to train myself not to get too interested in their problems,” he said, “and not to get sidetracked trying to be a semi-therapist.” Brief consultations have become common in psychiatry, said Dr. Steven Sharfstein, a former president of the American Psychiatric Association and the president and chief executive of Sheppard Pratt Health System, Maryland’s largest behavioral health system. “It’s a practice that’s very reminiscent of primary care,” Sharfstein said. “They check up on people; they pull out the prescription pad; they order tests.” With thinning hair, a gray beard and rimless glasses, Levin looks every bit the psychiatrist pictured for decades in New Yorker cartoons. His office, just above Dog Daze Canine Hair Designs in this suburb of Philadelphia, has matching leather chairs, and African masks and a moose head on the wall. But there is no couch or daybed; Levin has neither the time nor the space for patients to lie down anymore. On a recent day, a 50-year-old man visited Levin to get his prescriptions renewed, an encounter that took about 12 minutes. Two years ago, the man developed rheumatoid arthritis and became severely depressed. His family doctor prescribed an antidepressant, to no effect. He went on medical leave from his job at an insurance company, withdrew to his basement and rarely ventured out. “I became like a bear hibernating,” he said. He looked for a psychiatrist who would provide talk therapy, write prescriptions if needed and accept his insurance. He found none. He settled on Levin, who persuaded him to get talk therapy from a psychologist and spent months adjusting a mix of medications that now includes different antidepressants and an antipsychotic. The man eventually returned to work and now goes out to movies and friends’ houses. The man’s recovery has been gratifying for Levin, but the brevity of his appointments — like those of all of his patients — leaves him unfulfilled.

‘Like a ... mechanic’

company reimbursement rates and policies that discourage talk therapy are part of the reason. A psychiatrist can earn $150 for three 15-minute medication visits compared with $90 for a 45-minute talk therapy session. Competition from psychologists and social workers — who unlike psychiatrists do not attend medical school, so they can often afford to charge less — is the reason that talk therapy is priced at a lower rate. There is no evidence that psychiatrists provide higher quality talk therapy than psychologists or social workers.

troubled. But she has disciplined herself to confine her interactions to the business at hand. “The reality is that I’m not the therapist anymore,” she said, words that echoed her husband’s. Laura Levin, 63, maintains a lengthy waiting list, and many of the requests are heartbreaking. On a January day, a pregnant mother of a 3-year-old called to say that her husband was so depressed he could not rouse himself from bed. Could he have an immediate appointment? Levin’s first opening was a month away. “I get a call like that every day, and I find it really distressing,” Laura Levin said. “But do we work 12 hours every day instead of 11? At some point, you have to make a choice.”

Initial consultations with Donald Levin are 45 minutes, while second and later visits are 15. In those first 45 minutes, he takes extensive medical, psychiatric and family histories. He was trained to allow patients to tell their stories in their own unhurried way with few interruptions, but now he asks a rapid-fire series of questions in something akin to a directed interview. Even so, patients sometimes fail to tell him their most important symptoms until the end of the allotted time. “There was a guy who came in today, a 56-year-old man with a series of business failures who thinks he has ADD,” or attention deficit disorder, Levin said. “So I go through the whole thing and ask a series of questions about ADD, and it’s not until the very end when he says, ‘On October 28, I thought life was so bad, I was thinking about killing myself.’ ” With that, Levin began to consider an entirely different diagnosis from the man’s pattern of symptoms: excessive worry, irritability, difficulty falling asleep, muscle tension in his back and shoulders, persistent financial woes, the early death of his father, the disorganization of his mother. “The thread that runs throughout this guy’s life is anxiety, not ADD — although anxiety can impair concentration,” said Levin, who prescribed an antidepressant that he hoped would moderate the man’s anxiety. And he pressed the patient to see a therapist, advice patients frequently ignore. The visit took 55 minutes, putting Levin behind schedule. In 15-minute consultations, Levin asks for quick updates on sleep, mood, energy, concentration, appetite, irritability and problems like sexual dysfunction that can result from psychotropic medications. “And people want to tell me about what’s going on in their lives as far as stress,” Levin said, “and I’m forced to keep saying: ‘I’m not your therapist. I’m not here to help you figure out how to get along with your boss, what you do that’s self-defeating, and what alternative choices you have.’ ” Levin, wearing no-iron khakis,

a button-down blue shirt with no tie, blue blazer and loafers, had a cheery greeting for his morning patients before ushering them into his office. Emerging 15 minutes later after each session, he would walk into Laura Levin’s adjoining office to pick up the next chart, announce the name of the patient in the waiting room and usher that person into his office. He paused at noon to spend 15 minutes eating an Asian chicken salad with Ramen noodles. He got halfway through the salad when an urgent call from a patient made him put down his fork, one of about 20 such calls he gets every day. By afternoon, he had dispensed with the cheery greetings. At 6 p.m., his waiting room empty, Levin heaved a sigh after emerging from his office with his 39th patient. Then the bell on his entry door tinkled again, and another patient came up the stairs. “Oh, I thought I was done,” Levin said, disappointed. Laura Levin handed him the last patient’s chart. The Levins said they did not know how long they could work 11-hour days. “And if the stock market hadn’t gone down two years ago, we probably wouldn’t be working this hard now,” Laura Levin said.

cians often respond to fee cuts by increasing the volume of services they provide, but psychiatrists rarely earn enough to compensate for their additional training. Most would have been better off financially choosing other medical specialties. Dr. Louisa Lance, a former colleague of Levin’s, practices the old style of psychiatry from an office next to her house, 14 miles from Levin’s office. She sees new patients for 90 minutes and schedules follow-up appointments for 45 minutes. Everyone gets talk therapy.

“I miss the mystery and intrigue of psychotherapy,” he said. “Now I feel like a good Volkswagen mechanic.” “I’m good at it,” Levin went on, “but there’s not a lot to master in medications. It’s like ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ where you had Hal the supercomputer juxtaposed with the ape with the bone. I feel like I’m the ape with the bone now.” The switch from talk therapy to medications has swept psychiatric practices and hospitals, leaving many older psychiatrists feeling unhappy and inadequate. A 2005 government survey found that just 11 percent of psychiatrists provided talk therapy to all patients, a share that had been falling for years and has most likely fallen more since. Psychiatric hospitals that once offered patients months of talk therapy now discharge them within days with only pills. Recent studies suggest that talk therapy may be as good as or better than drugs in the treatment of depression, but fewer than half of depressed patients now get such therapy compared with the vast majority 20 years ago.

“I had to train myself not to get too interested in their problems and not to get sidetracked trying to be a semi-therapist,” says Dr. Donald Levin, a psychiatrist whose practice no longer includes talk therapy, a change brought about in large part because of changes in how much insurance will pay.

patients 10 or more times before arriving at a diagnosis. Now, he makes that decision in the first 45-minute visit. “You have to have a diagnosis to get paid,” he said with a shrug. “I play the game.” In interviews, six of Levin’s patients — their identities, like those of the other patients, are being withheld to protect their privacy — said they liked him despite the brief visits. “I don’t need a halfhour or an hour to talk,” said a stone mason who has panic attacks and depression and is prescribed an antidepressant. “Just give me some medication, and that’s it. I’m OK.” Another patient, a licensed therapist who has postpartum depression worsened by several miscarriages, said she sees Levin every four weeks, which is as often as her insurer will pay for the visits. Levin has prescribed antidepressants as well as drugs to combat anxiety. She also sees a therapist, “and it’s really, really been helping me, especially with my anxiety,” she said. She said she likes Levin and feels that he listens to her. Levin expressed some astonishment that his patients admire him as much as they do. “The sad thing is that I’m very important to them, but I barely know them,” he said. “I feel shame about that, but that’s probably because I was trained in a different era.” The Levins’ youngest son, Matthew, is now training to be a psychiatrist, and Donald Levin said he hoped that his son would not feel his ambivalence about their profession since he will not have experienced an era when psychiatrists lavished time on every patient. Before the 1920s, many psychiatrists were stuck in asylums treating confined patients covered in filth, so most of the 20th century was unusually good for the profession. In a telephone interview from the University of California, Irvine, where he is completing the last of his training to become a child and adolescent psychiatrist, Matthew Levin said, “I’m concerned that I may be put in a position where I’d be forced to sacrifice patient care to make a living, and I’m hoping to avoid that.”

Land use Continued from A1 “The majority of states that don’t have land use planning are suffering economic woes also,” he said. The way it works now, the Land Conservation and Development Commission is a seven-member board of citizens from throughout the state, appointed by the governor and confirmed by the senate. The commission is charged with setting statewide policy. The Department of Land Conservation and Development, with a staff of about 50 people, supports trained land use professionals. The staff also serves as advisers for local cities and governments to ensure planning codes are abiding by state rules. In some instances, the commission does have regulatory authority. There are 10 representatives from the department who are land use planning professionals placed throughout the state. Under Garrard’s bill, the five regional land use planning commissions would each have a chairman. Each chairman would sit on a statewide board and make up the state Land Conservation and Development Commission. Garrard said he believes the plan could save the state money by dismantling the current department and essentially staffing it with local volunteers. Neither a fiscal nor revenue impact statement has been done.

Locals weigh in During the 2009 session, a debate over the future of the Metolius River Basin, in Jefferson County, raged at both the local level and in Salem. After a process started by former Gov. Ted Kulongoski, the basin was designated as the state’s first Area of Critical State Concern, meaning all large-scale development was banned. Jefferson County commissioners, who fought the designation, urged the DLCD to be more transparent. Hearings were held throughout Central Oregon and in Salem, but local officials said at the time, they felt they were often left out of the loop. The state, they said, was usurping local control and going through a rushed process to create the designation. Jefferson County Community Director Jon Skidmore said that if the state had regional planning commissions, it’s unlikely the Metolius outcome would have been different. But he said there could have been more compromise or at least a more collaborative approach. “Perhaps (had there been a regional land use commission) they would have worked with the county and property owners to work out a kinder, gentler solution that would have permitted some degree of development,” Skidmore said. Skidmore is working to change an administrative rule that prohibits landowners and developers from putting large, commercial solar farms on their property. Under state rule, energy-generating facilities cannot exceed 12 acres on high-value farmland or 20 acres on low-value farmland, unless they receive an exception, which is difficult to obtain. The DLCD is looking at changing the rule. Jefferson County officials are among the first to push for a change in the rule. Skidmore said he believes if the rules didn’t need to be applicable to the entire state, the process could have been expedited. Right now, he said land in Jefferson County that isn’t irrigated or being used for farming is sitting empty, protected under the high-value farmland zoning. “When (people) think it’s protected for agriculture, they think rolling hills with (high-quality) soil. We have areas that don’t meet that description but that are protected,” Skidmore said. Deschutes County Community Planning Director Nick Lelack said any proposal that would modernize the statewide planning system is worth considering. “The regional characteristics of this state deserve consideration to address the unique landscapes, climates, economies, environments and cultures,” he said. “It’s a diverse state.”

Negotiations Localizing of land use planning is not a new concept. In fact, a similar bill proposed last session died in committee. Rep. Garrard said that with the house split 30 Republicans and 30 Democrats this session, there is a better chance of passage. “This bill has been adopted by the Republican caucus as one of their primary bills,” Garrard said. “That’s how much emphasis the Republicans in this Legislature feel about economic development in rural Oregon.” He knows the bill will be a tough sell to some. If it doesn’t

pass, he hopes the bill will serve as a starting point for negotiations toward local control. So far, he said, it’s already working. “We’re looking for leverage and public support because we want to keep this concept alive and moving forward,” Garrard said. “You know the saying? How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. If we could get one bite in this session and move toward (that goal). …” Jim Rue, deputy director with DLCD, said he has spoken with

Garrard. The department does not support Garrard’s bill. But he said the department is open to changing the way Oregon manages growth. “There are real concerns about the way the system works today, and we’re going to try to begin the process to address those,” he said. A committee hearing for the bill has not yet been scheduled. Lauren Dake can be reached at 541-419-8074 or at ldake@bendbulletin.com.

Cuban trial of U.S. worker draws to close The Associated Press HAVANA — The trial of a U.S. government contractor facing up to 20 years in jail on charges he sought to undermine Cuba’s government wrapped up Saturday after both sides gave closing arguments, but with no indication of when a verdict might come. A statement by the Cuban

government Saturday night said that during the trial Gross accepted some responsibility but added that he had been “used” and blamed the company that sent him to the island. The fate of Alan Gross, a 61-year-old Maryland native detained for more than a year since being caught bringing communications equipment

onto the communist-run island, was in the hands of a five-judge panel. Gloria Berbena, a spokeswoman for the U.S. diplomatic mission on the island, reiterated after the government statement was released that no verdict had been announced. She said Gross’ Cuban lawyer would be notified when a verdict was reached.

Ester

Orphanage

Continued from A1 “I knew the afternoon that I met her that she was my kid,” Charlie said. “She was my daughter and I just hadn’t met her yet. I thought about adoption the moment I heard her story. It tore me apart.” Ester was found on the streets of Uganda two years ago by the Redeemer House Orphanage, which is operated by Kathy Vaughan, of Prineville. Only bits and pieces of Ester’s story exist. The young girl gave them a broad version of the tale when they met, but more gritty details have emerged as the legal process of adoption has forced her to tell of a life filled with poverty, abandonment and abuse. What they know for sure is that Ester’s father died shortly after her birth. Her mother remarried at some point and Ester was abandoned. “They don’t take care of their stepchildren there,” Jenay said. “That’s just the way it works sometimes. We know there was abuse, but it’s not easy for her to talk about.” The Brewers believe it was part

Netflix Continued from A1 Because if Netflix can bring movies straight to your living room through the Internet, it can bring a full slate of TV shows, too. Pretty soon, who needs cable? On the other hand, if cable companies can bring you movies and TV directly over high-speed Internet lines, who needs Netflix? Multibillion-dollar corporations are fretting over those questions and fighting to influence the outcome. “No one can deny that Netflix has become a huge player in the industry,” said Deana Myers, a research analyst at the investment firm SNL Kagan. “But there are big questions surrounding the company, and they have big obstacles ahead.” Netflix has been disruptive since its inception in 1997. That year, Reed Hastings, a former Peace Corps volunteer and MIT engineering graduate, received a $40 video late fee and thought, “There has to be a better way.” So he built a website with partner Marc Randolph for Internet

Jesus with them.” Vaughn said anyone interested in donating to the orphanage can visit it online at www.redeemerhouseorphanage.org or visit the Hand of Hope site at www.handsofhopemissions.com/index. php/sponsor/61acres/. Vaughn added that beyond monetary donations, the orphanage is looking for loving families. “Far more important than funds, we are always looking for Christian families to adopt these awesome kids,” she said. “You will make an incredible difference in their lives, but they will change yours in ways you can’t imagine.”

“She was my daughter and I just hadn’t met her yet,” says Charlie Brewer of Ester. “I thought about adoption the moment I heard her story. It tore me apart.”

of a plan. Giving credit to God for bringing them together, they agree the girl was meant to be a Brewer. And while Jenay said she could never imagine such things happening to her children, she knows she will have to come to grips with Ester’s background. Ester is a Brewer now — a passport arrived last week with her new name on it — and the family knows it will take

time to complete the transition. “It’s going to be a major change,” Jenay said. “We’ve had counseling sessions to prepare. We know not to take her to Costco for a while. We’re going to home-school her for some time to see where she’s at. It’s going to be a challenge.” Meanwhile Charlie is worrying about the airport. “We’re going through an inter-

national airport in Amsterdam that is going to be filled with more technology than she can imagine,” he said. “There is going to be more food available at that airport than she has seen in her life.” Charlie, owner of Empire Homes, said Ester has given him pause to think about cultural concepts that will be new to his new daughter. When Ester saw a bro-

chure for his construction business, she wanted to know what the white box was in the kitchen. “It was an oven,” Charlie said. “I told her that, yes, it does cook food inside of the box.” The last time Jenay and Charlie were with Ester was in January for court hearings. Before they left, Charlie looked at Ester and made a promise.

users to sign up for seven-day DVD rentals. Two years later, the mail-order service copied the health-club business model and offered unlimited DVD rentals for monthly memberships. People liked it. No more late fees. No lines. You didn’t have to go any farther than the mailbox to get your movies. For Blockbuster, not so good. Netflix almost single-handedly wiped out the retail video rental business. Blockbuster went bankrupt last fall.

ical conclusion, you wind up with TV and Internet merging. Much of the telecom industry thinks that in a few years, people will watch TV and movies and surf the Web all with the same gear. So who brings you that service? It could be cable companies. Comcast just bought NBC Universal, which makes it a one-stop shop for cable TV, Internet service and movies. Or it could be phone companies. Verizon has a huge mobile Internet operation, plus fiber optic cables into more and more homes. Or it could be Netflix, which has the advantage of its relationship with an enormous subscriber base and a total stock-market value of $11 billion. “There is every reason to believe that between their market cap and public access to funds, Netflix is a buyer of content with big dollars,” said John Calkins, executive vice president of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, in a phone interview. Some in the industry think that is ridiculous. Time Warner Cable’s chief, Glenn Britt, said in an interview that Netflix is just a middleman — that it will soon

go the way of Blockbuster when consumers realize they can get all they want directly from the big telecoms. Others in the industry fear Netflix. They worry that it will dominate the marketplace and make content less valuable by imposing a low-cost Internet business model (how’s the music business doing these days?). Investors in cable companies fear that TV subscribers will flee, leaving them with Internet access businesses that simply manage traffic created by Netflix customers. “There are many incentives to create hurdles for online video firms like Netflix,” said Parul Desai, policy counsel for Consumers Union, parent of Consumer Reports magazine. “They are going up against powerful media and Internet service providers who are trying to come up with their own Internet video strategies and could limit access to content and access to their consumers.” So far, Netflix is last on Hollywood’s schedule. Movies first hit theaters and then DVD services such as Red Box. Last to receive “Inception” and other blockbusters are on-demand cable services

and Netflix. That’s partly because Netflix doesn’t pay as much, and partly because the big studios don’t want to undercut their DVD and cable licensing deals. “What Netflix and other broadband distributors mean for us is another avenue of distribution for our content and brand,” said Philippe Dauman, president of Viacom, in a phone interview. He said he had viewed Netflix with skepticism until last year, when it began offering more money for licenses to stream Viacom programming. But he also wants to proceed slowly with partnerships online. Delays and access to only certain, mostly older, content are key. Want to watch the previous four seasons of “Friday Night Lights”? It’s easy on Netflix, but you’ll have to watch the fifth and final season through NBC. The Super Bowl and Academy Awards won’t make it to Netflix, Hulu or YouTube for a long time.

Continued from A1 They are in the middle of a fundraising campaign called “61 Acres in 61 Days,” which ends Easter Sunday. “[We] hope to raise money to buy 61 acres near our current rented home where Redeemer House plans to build an orphan village,” Vaughan said. “[There] we will have our own school and clinic, a guest house, and a home for very sick orphans. We will farm, raise animals, and work with the villagers around us to help improve their standard of living and to share

The rush to stream But even faster than the business model could go from storefront rentals to mail-order rentals, it changed again. The spread of broadband Internet service led to the rise of online movie-watching. And this is where it gets messy. Netflix has concentrated more of its business on streaming movies straight to your home and mobile gadgets. A lot of other powerful corporate interests, though, are converging on this spot — a fundamental change in the way people consume entertainment. If you think it through to its log-

“We will never abandon you,” he said. “You will never be abandoned again.” Charlie said it was one of the most difficult things he has said in his life. “It was very hard on me,” he said. “You really can’t fathom it unless you see it or feel it. You think about how many times they’ve heard that someone is coming back or someone is going to be there for them. She’s been left before. So many times. It was faith on her part as well to go through this.” Now it is time to fulfill the promise. The Brewers expect a final hearing with the embassy in Uganda will be completed March 25. Charlie, his 18-year-old daughter, Lashae, and 16-year-old son, Kole, will leave for Uganda on March 18. They have return tickets for March 28, and Ester has one too. “At this point I just want my daughter home,” Jenay said. “It was so hard leaving her there the last time we left. It was like leaving the hospital without your child. Now I’m just ready for us to be a family.” Erik Hidle can be reached at 541-617-7837 or at ehidle@bendbulletin.com.

At the heart of Alpha is a box, called a media gateway, that’s about the size of a digital video recorder. It combines into one package the cable Internet modem, wireless router, telephone-service modem and DVR that clutter some BendBroadband customers’ living rooms today. It also will be the platform to provide even more enhanced services in the future. BendBroadband is testing the new service in a small number of homes and plans to launch it for all customers in April. A story in The Bulletin’s archives by staff reporter Tim Doran contributed to this report.

N  B Tornado hits Louisiana town; 1 dead, 11 hurt RAYNE, La. — A tornado slammed a southwestern Louisiana town Saturday, killing a young mother who was sheltering her child and injuring 11 other people. More than 100 homes were damaged, many of them destroyed, authorities said, and about 1,500 people were evacuated because of natural gas leaks. Maxine Trahan, a spokeswoman for the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office, said 21-year-old Jalisa Granger was killed when a tree fell on her house. “She sheltered the child to protect her from the storm and a tree fell on the house and it killed the mother but the child was OK,” Trahan said, adding that a relative who lived nearby found them. Debris was littered throughout Rayne, a town of about 8,500 people, after a line of violent thunderstorms moved through the area and left behind a swath of damage about a quarter of a mile wide to three miles long.

W.Va. hospital shown to overradiate patients A large West Virginia hospital seriously overradiated patients suspected of having strokes with CT scans for more than a year after similar episodes prompted federal officials to alert hospitals nationwide to be especially careful when using those types of scans, interviews and documents show. Patients at Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington, W.Va., were overdosed with radiation until late November, records show, even though the Food and Drug Administration had publicly issued its final report on hundreds of overdoses involving brain scans at other hospitals, and after these errors were discussed publicly in Congress and by state officials and professional organizations. Federal records indicate that Cabell knew of some of the overdoses for three months, but it did not disclose them publicly until The New York Times called the hospital for comment late last week. Within hours, the hospital issued a news release that was picked up by the local media. Charles Shumaker, a hospital spokesman, declined to say how many patients were overdosed, why the mistakes occurred or whether any hospital employees were disciplined as a result.

‘East Coast Rapist’ suspect arrested An elusive suspect wanted in at least a dozen sexual attacks across four states over the last decade was captured on Friday in Connecticut by law enforcement agents who received a tip about his whereabouts, officials said. Officers and agents of the U.S. Marshals Service arrested the suspect, Aaron H. Thomas, at 2:15 p.m. Friday, on a street in New Haven, the police said, adding that he had ties to Virginia and a history including work as a long-haul trucker. The long string of violence began with a gunpoint attack of a female bicyclist in Maryland in February 1997 and culminated in the rapes of two teenage trick-or-treaters on Halloween night in 2009 in Prince William County, Va., according to an FBI bulletin. In between, there were attacks in Fairfax and Leesburg, Va., in Cranston, R.I., and in New Haven, the authorities said. They added that more episodes could eventually be linked to the case. The attacker was referred to as “the East Coast Rapist.” Thomas was charged with first-degree sexual assault, burglary and risk of injury to a minor in connection with an attack in New Haven in 2007; he was also charged as a fugitive in connection with the Virginia case, the news release said. — From wire reports

Continued from A1 So that sore throat wasn’t just an irritant. It was a challenge to the whole gutcentered worldview on which his bid for extreme longevity rests. “I went back in my mind: What am I not eating enough of?” he told me. Definitely not fruits and vegetables: He crams as many as 20 of them into the smoothies he drinks two to three times a day. Probably not protein: He eats plenty of seafood, egg whites, beans and nuts to compensate for his avoidance of dairy, red meat and poultry, which are consigned to a list of forbidden foods that also includes alcohol, sugar and salt. “I couldn’t figure it out,” he said. So he made a frustrated peace with his malady, which was gone in 36 hours. “I wasn’t really struggling with it,” he said. “But my voice changed a little bit. I always have a powerful voice.” Indeed, he speaks so loudly at times, and in such a declamatory manner, that it cows people. “When I open my mouth,” he noted, “the room rings.” The room ringing just then was the vast common area of his North Carolina lodge, which sits on more than 500 acres of woods and meadows where a flock of rare black Welsh sheep roam under the protection of four Great Pyrenees dogs. Murdock keeps yet another black Welsh flock at one of his two homes in Southern California, a 2,200-acre ranch whose zoological bounty extends to a herd of longhorn cattle, about 800 koi in a man-made lake and 16 horses. He has five homes in all. Forbes magazine’s most recent list of the 400 richest Americans put him at No. 130, with an estimated net worth of $2.7 billion, thanks to real estate development and majority stakes in an array of companies, most notably Dole.

A public diet His affluence has enabled him to turn his private fixation on diet and longevity into a public one. I went to see him first in North Carolina in late January. It is there, outside of Charlotte, in a city named Kannapolis near his lodge, that he has spent some $500 million of his fortune in recent years to construct the North Carolina Research Campus, a scientific center dedicated to his conviction that plants hold the promise of optimal health and maximal life span. There are health nuts, and then there is Murdock: health paragon, patron and proselytizer. But what set him on his quest was a loss that no amplitude of wellness can restore, and even if he teased out his days into eternity, he would be hard-pressed to fill them with the contentment they once had. Murdock grew up in the tiny town of Wayne, Ohio, the middle child of three and the only son. He didn’t see much of his father, a traveling salesman, but was close to his mother, who took in laundry and scrubbed floors to help make ends meet. She died, from cancer, when she was just 42 and he 17. By then he was living on his own, having dropped out of school at 14. He has dyslexia, though no one initially realized it, and never managed grades better than D’s. After finishing several years of service in the U.S. Army at age 22, he was not only penniless but also homeless, and slept for a while under a bush in a Detroit park. He would cadge coffee from a friend employed at a greasy spoon. A man who worked for a loan company met Murdock there, learned that he was a veteran and offered to help. With the man’s assistance, he rounded up $1,200 in loans and bought that diner. He sold it a year and a half

David Murdock, pictured in 2006 at a groundbreaking ceremony for the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, N.C., has turned his private fixation on diet and longevity into a public one. The research campus, on which he has spent $500 million, helps study his conviction that plants hold the promise of optimal health and maximal life span. later for $1,900, set out for California and stopped along the way in Phoenix, where the opportunity to make money was too good to pass up. He stayed for 17 years, buying cheap land and constructing affordable houses for all the people moving South and West after World War II. Houses and small office buildings were followed by larger office buildings, in Arizona and California and eventually the Midwest. To invest all the money pouring in, he bought stock, then more stock, then whole companies. He took over Dole, part of a larger company, Castle & Cooke, which he acquired control of in 1985. It was a heady ride, and his partner for the headiest stretch of it was a German-born beauty who became his wife in 1967, when he was in his mid-40s and she was in her late 20s. Her name was Gabriele. Although he’d been married twice before, he hadn’t fathered any children. With Gabriele he had two boys, who joined a son of hers whom he adopted. He moved his base of operations from Arizona to California and, for his new family, bought the legendary Conrad Hilton estate in Beverly Hills. Soon afterward, for weekend getaways, he also bought the ranch, in Ventura County, about a 30-minute drive away.

Tragic turn In 1983 Gabriele was given a diagnosis of advanced ovarian cancer. Determined to heal her somehow, David wondered about nutrition and began to do extensive research into what she — and he, in support of her — should eat. The answer was more or less the kind of diet he has stuck to ever since. Because many cancers have environmental links and the one she got didn’t run in her family, David suspects that lifestyle was a culprit, and is convinced that if the two of them had eaten better sooner, she would have been spared the year and a half of hope and fear and pain. “If I had known what I know today,” he says, “I could have saved my wife’s life. And I think I could have saved my mother’s life too.” Gabriele Murdock died 18 years into their marriage, in 1985. She was 43. Less than a year later, the oldest of the couple’s three sons, Eugene, drowned in the estate’s pool, apparently after accidentally hitting his head. He was 23. Even then death wasn’t done with the family. About seven years ago, the second of the three boys, David II, had a fatal car crash as he sped down the Santa Monica Freeway. He

was 36. The family is down to just Murdock and his youngest son, Justin, now 38, who helps run NovaRx, a biotechnology firm in which Murdock owns a controlling share. Murdock did marry a fourth time, and then a fifth, but neither union lasted long. He has been single for more than a decade now, though he frequently makes passing references to “my wife,” meaning Gabriele, photographs of whom dominate his homes. The other wives don’t show up. For a few years after losing Gabriele and Eugene, David delegated many business dealings to subordinates. When his zest finally returned, he was consumed by the subject of what and how he and Gabriele should have eaten. Bit by bit his entire world became one of well-being. Out behind the orchid conservatory on his California ranch, he constructed tens of thousands of square feet of additional greenhouse space, where a small posse of gardeners tends an encyclopedic array of produce.

Beliefs and business At Dole’s headquarters in Westlake Village, Calif., employees eat in a subsidized cafeteria where salad is plentiful and chicken nuggets unthinkable, and they have free access to a company gym where personal training, also subsidized, is $30 an hour. Across the street is a hotel, completed in 2006 and operated by the Four Seasons, that Murdock built to house the California Health and Longevity Institute, a combination medical suite, spa and demonstration kitchen. The institute and hotel are meant to turn a profit — and do, a small one — and they underscore how interconnected Murdock’s evangelism and business interests have become. As does the research campus. Dole is the world’s largest producer of fruits and vegetables, so studies into their health benefits have a huge potential upside for the company. Many of the foods under the microscope are foods Dole sells. Blueberries, for example. World-renowned blueberry authority Mary Ann Lila — technically affiliated now with North Carolina State University — and her colleagues are using the campus’ high-powered nuclear magnetic-resonance machines to look for the unknown natural compounds in blueberries that will speed their efforts to maximize the fruit’s medicinal properties. They believe blueberries could help combat several diseases, including obesity.

Providing Audiological services to the Pacific Northwest for 30 Years

Other researchers on campus are investigating such matters as the extent to which quercetin, found in the skins of apples, can have an anti-inflammatory effect, and how a certain type of fermented Chinese tea can lower bad cholesterol. Murdock is also spending millions on the Murdock Study, with the goal of enrolling 50,000 Kannapolis-area residents, taking full blood work from them, storing it in a refrigerated warehouse and annually monitoring the residents’ health. The hope is that the study will help determine what biological markers today can tell doctors about the onset of disease decades later. The results won’t be proprietary to Dole. Murdock says that he wants to slay such killers as diabetes, heart disease and, of course, cancer, and the scientists around him say that in some monumentally optimistic corner of his mind, he quite possibly believes he can. Unable to save Gabriele or the boys, he’s out to save the world. Dreamers have pursued longevity — and, in some cases, immortality — in all sorts of wacky and exacting ways, from hyperbaric chambers to cryogenics. And they have sought to fine-tune their bodies with all manner of rigorously proscribed diets.

sources beyond legumes has emerged as the consensus recommendation of most medical professionals. The doctors who work with Murdock — who stands 5-foot8 and weighs about 140 pounds — say that he has ideal blood pressure, clear arteries, good muscle tone. But they doubt that these will carry him to 125. They point out that he didn’t adopt his healthful ways until his 60s, and they note that genes often trump behavior. Although Murdock’s father lived well into his 90s, his mother died young, and his sisters are both dead. “There’s been no documented intervention that has been shown to radically extend duration of life — ever,” says S. Jay Olshansky, an expert on aging who teaches at the School of Public Health at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Told of Murdock’s health-minded habits, Olshansky said that just about all of them were prudent ways of probably “letting his body live out to its genetic potential,” but added, “He’ll be disappointed when he doesn’t reach 125.” I got the feeling that part of what pushes Murdock toward 125 is the sheer challenge. He bragged to me several times about once transplanting a centuries-old tree larger than any ever successfully moved. And he drew my attention to scores of oddly shaped boulders from Thailand’s River Kwai that decorate the grounds of the ranch. He says that he still gets pleasure from them, and from much of the rest of his gilded life, and that he doesn’t know what, if anything, comes after. Although he is a churchgoing Christian, death, he concedes, could simply be blackness, nullity. During my last visit with him, Murdock took me out to see the koi. He enjoys tossing them their pellets of food from the red wood bridge that arches over the lake. “You want to know what I like and what makes me happy?” he said as we stood on the bridge. “Just having these fish makes me happy. Every one is alive because of me.” We began tossing out pellets by the handful. He told me that I wasn’t using enough muscle and showed me how it was done. Then he frowned. The koi, he said, weren’t lunging and thrashing. Had someone fed them too recently? Was someone feeding them too often? He vowed to look into it, declaiming the same fault in the fish that he finds in so many of the planet’s inhabitants. “They’re not eating the way I like them to,” he said.

Ideal diet? Murdock’s methods are, in that context, utterly mainstream, an example of extraordinary discipline rather than frontier science. A plant-based diet that’s low in animal fat while still allowing for protein

Salem Week Examining each week of the 2011 Legislature from a Central Oregon perspective Analysis

Colleges seek tuition control By Nick Budnick The Bulletin

SALEM — If you are a parent signing a $20,000 check over to a private college, you have a good idea of where that money is headed. You can’t say the same, however, when you fork over a wad of tuition cash to Oregon’s state universities. University officials aren’t allowed to spend money collected from students on programs for those same students — that is, not without permission from state lawmakers. What sometimes

happens instead is that the Legislature raids tuition funds to balance its budget. “If you wrote a check and went down to (Oregon State University), there’s nothing right now that will stop the Legislature from taking that money and spending it somewhere else,” said Sen. Mark Hass, D-Beaverton. “There’s literally no difference between the University of Oregon and the Department of Motor Vehicles in terms of their structure — and I just think that’s fundamentally wrong.” See Tuition / B2

Report emphasizes need to reduce buildup of flammable debris in Bend neighborhoods By Kate Ramsayer The Bulletin

Neighborhoods including southwest Bend, west Bend and southeast Bend are at the highest risk of wildfires in the greater Bend area, according to a new report that outlines priority areas for work that would help reduce the risk of fire.

Other neighborhoods — like Awbrey Glen and Sunset View Estates — have taken measures over the past five years to shrink the risk of wildfires. The draft of the Greater Bend Community Wildfire Protection Plan, released last week, acknowledges the work completed since the first plan for

Bend was released in 2006 and lays out the need for more fuelsreducing work. Awareness that something needs to be done to protect neighborhoods from wildfire has increased in the past five years, said Katie Lighthall, program director with Project Wildfire. The Deschutes County organization focuses on wildfire education and prevention efforts. When the first version of the Bend plan came out in 2006,

Project Wildfire staff had to knock on doors to drum up interest in projects like creating a defensible space around homes by cleaning up flammable debris, Lighthall said. Now, residents are calling, asking if they can be part of efforts to reduce risks. “People seem to understand that lightning’s going to come through every summer, and it’s just a matter of when,” she said. “We want them to be prepared.” See Wildfires / B6

Washington Week The U.S. House voted Tuesday to prevent a government shutdown by extending funding for the federal government by two weeks. The vote is meant to give agencies the ability to continue operating. It also cuts $4 billion in spending. “Today’s vote by the House gives Senator Reid another two weeks to consider H.R. 1, legislation passed by the House that would fund the government through September while providing billions in spending cuts needed to help create a better environment for job creation,” read a statement on the website of Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio. “The House approved H.R. 1 ten days ago, but the Senate, unfortunately, has taken no action on H.R. 1 or any other legislation that would keep the government operating for the remainder of the fiscal year. Stopgap measures like the one approved in the House today are only needed because the Democrats who run Washington failed to pass a budget last year and are now failing to listen to the American people who want to keep the government running while cutting spending.” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., countered in a speech she gave, which was transcribed on her website. “I just want to know where everybody was in the days when this deficit grew in the 8 years of the Bush Administration. That’s why we are in the situation we are today. That’s why we must again make some very difficult decisions. So what is before us today is a short term, let’s just keep the government open two weeks, so we use that time to do the right thing. Use that time to have a reality check. A reality check on how we got these deficits in the first place and how tax cuts at the highest end, they do not create jobs but increase the deficit and are not the appropriate path to deficit reduction. How cutting education and therefore the innovation that goes with it and the strength of our children and our economy is affected, is not the way to do it. Many people here have much experience on the way to do it and they sit on both sides of the aisle.” See Washington / B2

Bicycling advocates send representative to national summit in Washington By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Commute Options for Central Oregon is sending a representative to Washington, D.C., this week to attend the National Bike Summit and push lawmakers to protect programs that have paid for local transportation projects. The trip is a first for the nonprofit, which educates and encourages people to ride bicycles and walk instead of driving. Kim Curley, the community outreach director for Commute Options, will attend the threeday summit. The National Bike Summit, organized by the League of American Bicyclists, will take place Tuesday through Thursday.

Curley plans to tell lawmakers how two federal programs — Safe Routes to School and a fund that pays for enhancements to local transportation infrastructure — have helped Central Oregonians. She plans to meet with the Oregon delegation and attend sessions relating to infrastructure, advocacy, health and transportation. While those programs haven’t yet been targeted for cuts, Curley said it’s important to advocate for them because members of Congress are focused on broad cuts to the federal budget. “Legislators are tasked with cutting lots of money from the spending that we currently have,” Curley said.

Tuition Continued from B1 Hass, who heads a key Senate committee, is joining with top leaders of the Oregon University System to end that system’s status as a state agency, instead hatching a more independent system with more control over its finances. The move, carried in a Hass bill, SB 242, is supported by leaders of Bend’s OSU-Cascades campus and Central Oregon Community College. The bill is expected to be approved by the Senate Education and Workforce Development in the coming week — and some form of it appears likely to become law. “I think it puts in some closer coordination with the different entities, the community colleges and the universities, which we think is a positive thing,” said Ron Paradis, COCC’s director of college relations.

‘We’ve tried to play fair and be transparent’ Today, when university officials look at their community college counterparts — like Paradis — they can’t help but feel a bit of fiscal envy. In the past, state universities have had to turn over information about their reserves to lawmakers for possible appropriation for other purposes, while community college leaders have not because of their locally elected boards,. “It’s been frustrating, to be candid,” said Jay Kenton, the system’s vice chancellor. “We’ve tried to play fair and be transparent, but we feel like in many ways we get penalized.” University officials say the Hass bill will put them on nearly equal footing with community colleges in terms of controlling their own budget destiny. “It will allow us to retain the tuition that we bring in from students, and guarantees that we can use it to educate students,” said Chancellor George Pernsteiner, head of the OUS. “I think that is important when you have growth as rapid as we’ve had.” Pernsteiner said the uncertainty “really does harm your ability to be able to hire faculty and staff to serve the students — because you don’t know if you’re going to have the money to pay them.” Since last year, for instance, lawmakers had refused to let university officials spend $17 million in unexpected tuition fees, in case the state needed it for some other purpose. Not until last week did lawmakers relent and approve spending that money. The lack of control has been all the more frustrating because the state’s higher education funding is a fraction of what it once was.

Allen Central Oregon Connections: Allen is well known throughout Central Oregon. He’s the former mayor of Madras as well as a former Jefferson County Commissioner. Last session, he lobbied on behalf of a destination resort that Jefferson County Commissioners were hoping would be built in the Camp Sherman area. Former Gov. Ted Kulongoski declared the Metolius River basin an Area of Critical State Concern, thus banning large-scale development. Allen has been a volunteer fireman with the Jefferson County Fire District for 35 years. Last book read: Allen just finished the DLCD’s report on La Pine’s comprehensive plan. He said he knows it’s not a book, but it was enough reading to last him a while. Hobbies: Whitewater rafting, volunteering for the fire department, fishing, hiking and spending time with friends. “I love every day,” Allen said. — Lauren Dake, The Bulletin

• STOP THE RELEASE OF CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSE HOLDERS’ IDENTITIES Tuesday, 1 p.m.: House Committee on Judiciary will have a work session to consider HB 2787, which would prevent the release of information to the public identifying who has a concealed handgun license.

• CHANGE SCHOOL STANDARDS Tuesday, 1 p.m.: Senate Committee on Education and Workforce Development is scheduled to hold a public hearing on SB 290, which would look at different standards to judge how teachers and administrators are performing.

Funding has dropped to 29 percent In the last two decades, the state’s per-student funding had dropped from 62 percent to just 29 percent. The portion provided by student-paid tuition and fees, however, has climbed from 29 percent to 63 percent, according to Di Saunders, a spokeswoman for Pernsteiner. “It’s a total flip-flop over a 20year period of who’s paying what,” she said. So what does the change mean for the future, including for OSU-Cascades? For one thing, Hass says, it means less paperwork. In the past, if a university needed a lawyer, it had to go to the state Department of Justice. If it needed to build a building, it had to ask the Legislature. He said lawmakers are motivated to help universities, an attitude shared by Gov. John Kitzhaber. Though he hasn’t proposed boosting funds for

higher education, the governor has largely spared them from the deep cuts targeted at K-12 public schools. “I think it gives them more flexibility and makes them more competitive,” Hass said. “We can’t give you (university officials) any more money this year, but we can make your life easier.” In the past, some critics have worried about what university independence might mean. They’ve noted that university leaders have chafed at lawmakers’ dictates that tuition be kept low at smaller campuses like the one in Bend. Some university officials in previous years threw darts at OSU-Cascades, leading some state Senators to try unsuccessfully to shut down the campus two years ago.

Original bill was ‘shot full of holes’ Hass said his original bill seeking university independence was “shot full of holes” last summer, but he said backers are setting up checks and balances to address those fears. If the bill were to go to a vote of the full Senate today, “I think it would get 30 votes,” he said. “It took us a year to get everybody on board.” Kenton, for his part, said that letting the universities figure out the best way to grow can only help the system as a whole — including OSU-Cascades. He’s been busily talking to city officials and lawmakers like Rep. Gene Whisnant, R-Sunriver, about how to build a larger campus on the Juniper Ridge property. Personally, Kenton would like to see progress on that goal, to help the troubled economy of Central and Eastern Oregon. To meet the goal shared by Kitzhaber and many lawmakers of boosting Oregon’s education level, “We don’t want to be closing institutions — we’re going to have to grow to achieve that goal,” he said, adding that he was speaking only for himself. And because greater Bend is increasingly one of the largest communities in Oregon, Kenton said, “It may very well be that in 20 years there will be an institute with 10,000 students over there.” Nick Budnick can be reached at 503-566-2839 or at nbudnick@bendbulletin.com.

O DORCHESTER CONFERENCE

GOP optimistic about future By Jonathan J. Cooper The Associated Press

SEASIDE — A solid base of candidates in low-level offices and a united party mean Republicans are poised to regain power in Oregon despite a drubbing in last year’s election that defied national trends, state GOP leaders and activists said Saturday. Oregon Republicans met in Seaside for the annual three-day Dorchester Conference, hoping to refine their positions and engage the party faithful nearly two years before they try to pick up a seat in Washington. Last year’s national wave that swept Republicans to power mostly missed Oregon, leaving Rep. Greg Walden as the state’s only Republican in Washington and giving the Governor’s Office to Democrat John Kitzhaber. The GOP doesn’t hold a single statewide office in Oregon. “We gave it our best on the West Coast and we came up slightly short,” Walden said of November’s election. “But I’ll tell you what, we have another election coming up in not too long, and we’re out to add seats in the U.S. House of Representatives on the Republican side.” Walden wasn’t the only Republican looking ahead. Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, the No. 3 Republican in the House, also sounded an optimistic tone in an address. “I don’t want to say we lost. We just started the journey,” McCarthy said. “It wasn’t for a lack of ideas or a lack of trying. This just wasn’t our time, and we’re going to keep on running.”

Bike summit Continued from B1 Since 2008, Commute Options and government agencies in Central Oregon have been awarded approximately $1 million in Safe Routes to School funding for education on bicycle and pedestrian safety, enforcement of traffic rules around schools, and engineering for infrastructure improvements, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation. Julie Yip, the Safe Routes to School program manager for ODOT, said some students do not live within walking or bicycling distance of their schools. For students who live close enough, Safe Routes to School can make it easier to bicycle or walk. “It’s encouraging students to walk and bike to school safely, when possible,” Yip said. “If that’s not possible, we want the

Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., speaks to Republicans at the annual Dorchester Conference on Saturday in Seaside. The Dorchester Conference is an annual meeting at which Republicans hear from politicians and debate issues.

“I’ll tell you what, we have another election coming up in not too long, and we’re out to add seats in the U.S. House of Representatives on the Republican side.” — Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. Despite falling short on statewide and congressional races, Republicans made strides in the state Legislature last year. They picked up seats in the Senate and tied Democrats in the House — not enough to give them control, but sufficient to block Democrats from passing legislation without GOP support.

Oregon hasn’t had a Republican governor since Vic Atiyeh left office in 1987. Despite disappointing results in top-of-the-ticket ticket races last year, Atiyeh told The Associated Press that he’s “more heartened” about the state of the Republican Party than he’s been in a long time, because he respects GOP chair Allen Alley and

schools to look at the reasons why it’s not possible.” The other funding stream Curley wants lawmakers to preserve is the Transportation Enhancement Program. It pays for infrastructure work that is not on the highways, said ODOT spokesman Peter Murphy. For example, the city of Redmond was awarded approximately $1.2 million in the current biennium for work on the Dry Canyon trail, according to an ODOT document. At the same time, Deschutes County was awarded $372,921 to put bike lanes on Ferguson Road.

Portland-centric group.” When it comes to promoting bicycling and walking, Central Oregon has unique challenges and strengths. “A challenge is, many of us live far away from where we go,” Curley said. “In rural areas like Central Oregon, we take a lot of car trips to get around.” Characteristics that encourage bicycling and walking include a sunny climate and lots of flat terrain. Also, many residents moved to Central Oregon for the quality of life, so it may be easier to encourage these people to choose walking or bicycling “because of the lifestyle change they made to come here,” Curley said. And how will Curley travel around Washington? She plans to rent a bike.

A ‘less metro’ view Bike advocates in Portland invited Curley to go to with them, “just to provide a less metro viewpoint,” Curley said. “The statewide delegation from Oregon has always been largely a

because the party has developed a deep bench of talented Republicans who will be well-positioned to run for office down the road. “We have this awful image as being only for the millionaires, and (Democrats) have an image of being for the little guy,” Atiyeh said. “I’ve been around long enough to know neither one is true.” Among Republicans at Dorchester, there was widespread agreement that the party is benefiting from new cooperation in place of infighting that used to split warring factions. “I think the movement is continuing to progress in this state,” Mannix said. Kitzhaber narrowly won the gubernatorial race in November, topping Republican Chris Dudley 50 percent to 48 percent. Dudley won handily in eastern Oregon but was trounced in heavily Democratic Multnomah county. The Dorchester conference began in 1965 when Bob Packwood, then a state representative, organized a meeting for Oregon Republicans to discuss the future of the party at Dorchester House in Lincoln City. It has grown into a tradition for Republican activists and a chance for them to meet elected officials and party officials. “The pendulum has swung so the Republicans have reached the center more and Democrats have walked away from it,” said Chris Matson, a Democrat and Eugene political consultant who works for candidates from both parties.

O  B Wu tells constituents he’s still fit to serve

Medford school employees fear cuts

ASTORIA — U.S. Rep. David Wu continued his tour through his district to reassure constituents that he is still fit to serve. Wu met Saturday with political leaders from the northern Oregon coast at a seafood restaurant in Astoria, the Daily Astorian reports. Wu apologized for his behavior documented in reports over the last month, which included sending his staff photos of himself wearing a tiger costume. Six staff members quit after his 2010 re-election campaign, during which the congressman gave angry speeches and talked his way into the secure portion of Portland International Airport. Wu says he plans to appear in every county in his district this weekend. Among those gathered were members of the City Council, county commission and the mayors of Astoria and Warrenton.

MEDFORD — A 55-yearold Medford School District supervisor whose contract was set to expire in June has retired, citing the district’s ongoing and future contract negotiations in which he expects cuts to his retirement benefits if he stays. Medford schools’ secondary education director Doug Jantzi is one of six supervisors in the district set to retire as the district looks to cut at least $10 million from its $90 million budget. The Medford Mail Tribune reports that the district includes about 600 teachers and 500 support staff who serve about 12,500 students at 19 campuses. It is Jackson County’s fourth-largest employer. The district wants to save money in a new employment contract, which is now the subject of bargaining with the employees’ unions. — From wire reports

Reward money raised for Is it Alzheimer’s? Maybe not capture of timber wolves By Linda Shrieves

The Orlando Sentinel

100 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 5, 1911 OREGON PIONEER DIES Orson Francis Persons died at his upriver home, on Saturday, after a brief illness. Heart disease was the cause of his death. Funeral services were held Monday at the family home, the Rev. J. Anthony Mitchell officiating. Interment was in the private cemetery on the place of C.B. Allen. Mr. Persons was born in Vermont, and served in the 6th Infantry during the Civil War. He was a pioneer in Nebraska, Idaho and Oregon. He moved to the upriver place about two years ago. Mr. Persons reached the age of 62 years and 5 months. He is survived by his widow and daughter, Mrs. Short. TIMBER WOLVES WILL BE HUNTED DOWN BY STOCKMEN Two large gray timber wolves have been seen recently on the range in the lava and timber adjacent to Horse Ridge. While riding after stock, Guy Ritter saw them recently and found a horse that had been attacked by them. Some of the stockmen interested are raising a purse and will offer a reward for their capture. GIRLS HAVE GAME The basketball game Thursday evening at Linster’s Hall between the White and Blue teams of the Bend Girls Athletic Association resulted in a score of 5-1, in favor of the whites. After the game the basket social was held, and the organization received $87.80 for the 25 baskets auctioned. J.I. West acted as auctioneer and with the assistance of two clerks managed to sell all the baskets in a short time. There was much spirited bidding, and several buyers were forced to pay large prices. The highest price received for one basket was $10.25. After the baskets were all sold, the members of the club served coffee to all present. The sale of candy amounted to $5. The basketball game proved to be very close and was marked throughout by steady playing. Mrs. W.W. Faulkner officiated as referee. There was a good attendance at the game, the admission amounted to $25. The line-up follows: WHITES Angeline Young, rf, Nellie Markell ,lf, Mrs. M.S. Lattin, lg, Ada Porter, rg , Anne Markel, c.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 5, 1936 HIGH DESERT RIVER STILL RISING TODAY A muddy torrent from High Desert uplands continued to rise through Dry River gorge east of Millican today, with the water still rising this afternoon as traffic detoured around washouts on the Central Oregon highway. About 8 miles east of Millican, a miniature lake has formed on the channel of the ancient river and water today was several feet above the floor of the Clifton M. Rosin house, a concrete residence unoccupied for several years. About a mile or so west of the Rosin house, the muddy flow in the old channel suddenly disappeared, either leaking into fissures or finding its way into the dry sand. Last weekend, it was believed that water would once again run through the gorge of Dry River over its entire distance, from the Whittaker holes and beyond north toward Crooked River. So great was the flow through the channel near the Rosin house that three culverts on the Central Oregon highway were washed, one after being replaced.

Y E S T E R D AY Whether the flow is to continue to increase is problematical. From higher levels in the High Desert area comes information that many depressions are filled with water and that large cakes of ice remain unmelted. It is believed that much of the heavy runoff in the higher country east of Millican is due to the frozen condition of the ground. The present stream in the upper stretches of the Dry River gorge brings to mind the fact that old timers tell of having seen great floods of water running in the normally dry channel in early years. Aside from the Rosin house washout, the Central Oregon roadbed between Bend and Burns was in general use today, although somewhat muddy and rutted in places. Blocked by a washout on Bear Creek yesterday, the Crooked River highway will be ready for general use by tomorrow morning. One way traffic past the washout was made possible today. The highway between Bend and Portland was reported from the local chamber of commerce this afternoon to be in good winter shape. The Columbia River highway is open, but chains are being advised. To the south, the Fremont highway between here and Lakeview remains open, but is a bit muddy in places. The Dalles-California highway between here and Klamath Falls is in good mid-winter condition.

50 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 5, 1961 THE GARBAGE RETURNED AS IF BY MAGIC (E ditorial) This might be news to certain Central Oregonians: Dumping of garbage on public lands is banned by federal and state laws. Offenders are liable up to $500 in fines. There is also a jail penalty, up to one year. Garbage heaps in the open sage country, on scenic rims overlooking such beauty spots as Prineville, at Mitchell on Bridge Creek or long highways through Taylor Grazing Act lands indicate that the laws are not known, or are unheeded. In Madras recently, Joe Mohan, range manager of the Central Oregon Grasslands, noted the practice of strewing garbage on public lands. Not only are scenic areas being ruined by heaps of garbage, parts of old cars and rusting cans, but stock grazing in the region are being endangered, the Grasslands manager said. Broken bits of glass and pieces of wire are occasionally eaten by grazing cattle. Millard Rodman, president of the Gray Butte Grazing Association are definitely concerned by the mounting loss. Officials in the Jefferson County area said they are reluctant to institute a “get tough” policy. Why not? If lands are being ruined, scenic values lost and stock endangered by the practice, it is time to get tough! It is no hard task to trace the garbage to its owners. Their names appear frequently on old prescription bottles, pill containers, or discarded letters. We have frequently recalled what happened to a Bend resident who a number of years ago dumped a great heap of garbage within the U.S. National Forest, adjacent to a federal road not far from Bend. A careful check resulted in the identification of the garbage dumper. The person identifying the garbage carefully loaded it on a truck and headed into town, as darkness fell. Next morning the garbage owner found it carefully heaped on his own front lawn. There was no “squawk”— not even a report to police.

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending March 5, 1986 LOGGER USES HORSE POWER Roger Nasset’s long auburn hair blended with the sorrel coat of the Belgian draft horse, Prince, as the two went flying down the hillside. Nasset dodging clumps of sagebrush and the horse intent on his job — skidding a 30 foot juniper log to the road. The two are “partners” in a logging business. Under permits from the Crooked River National Grasslands, Nasset and helper Dave Miller fell and trim trees and, with Prince doing the heavy work, skid juniper and lodgepole pine logs out of the brush. They saw logs into stove-wood lengths, split them and deliver them at $65 a cord. “I’ve never had a job that was so much fun and still made me a little money,” Nasset said. He gave up working for another logger, he said, “because I wanted to be my own boss.” Nasset said he fell in love with draft horses when he was a young boy. His grandfather farmed with Percherons in North Dakota and “I enjoyed all that.” Nasset teamed up with Prince after buying the horse about a year ago. He operated as the R.A. Nasset Company, Belgian Horse Logging. Bill Pieratt, district ranger at the Crooked River National Grasslands, said the horse logging is being allowed on a trial basis to see if Nasset can operate economically, how it works out administratively and how the operation affects the ground cover. Commercial harvesting of firewood with off-road vehicles creates ruts and destroys grasses and small plants, Pieratt said. If horse logging works out, Pieratt said, “We hope to expand that type of logging into green juniper and we’ll both gain.” Removing some trees will benefit wildlife habitat and improve forage for deer herds, the ranger said. Another benefit from Nasset’s operation is that he scatters slash — branches and other odds and ends left over from logging — along trails created by motorcycles and four-wheel-drive vehicles. This helps restore vegetation. “From what Roger has done, it has worked out well,” Pieratt said. Nasset expects to be successful in his new business. He not only has cards to hand out, but also wears a T-shirt that depicts a team of Belgian horses in soft tones of gray. The logo was designed by Nasset’s nephew, Jason Gregory, a Madras High School sophomore. More encouragement in his new venture comes from his mother, Josephine Kipp, who “fixes my lunches and gets me up in the morning.” But without Prince, there wouldn’t be nearly as much fun in a day’s work.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Alicia Harper spent years as a missionary, working in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Mexico, but she faced her greatest challenge six years ago when, at age 69, her mind and body began to falter. When her children visited, she often sat on the sofa in her Longwood, Fla., home, unresponsive to what was going on around her. A regular churchgoer, she gradually lost interest in attending church. She didn’t recognize her own bedroom. Meanwhile, she was beginning to have trouble walking — and her right hand and right leg often shook. The diagnosis? Alzheimer’s disease. The reality? Fluid on the brain. Experts say a significant percentage of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease suffer from something else. A study released late last month underscored that message. Researchers in Honolulu autopsied the brains of 426 Japanese-American men who were residents of Hawaii, and who died at an average age of 87. Of those, 211 had been diagnosed with a dementia when they were alive, most commonly Alzheimer’s disease. The study found that about half of the men diagnosed with Alzheimer’s did not have sufficient numbers of the brain lesions characterizing that condition to support the diagnosis. For the Harpers, it would take several years before they discovered Alicia did not have Alzheimer’s disease. Instead, she had normal pressure hydrocephalus. With NPH, patients have a buildup of fluid on the brain — and often experience memory loss, trouble walking and loss of

Tina Russell / Orlando Sentinel

Longwood, Fla., resident Alicia Harper sits with her husband, Nildo Harper, in their home. Alicia experienced memory loss for six years as her doctors misdiagnosed her with Alzheimer’s disease. She actually had NPH, normal pressure hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid on the brain. bladder control. As many as 5 percent of those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease or some form of dementia may have NPH instead, doctors say.

Health care providers often unaware of NPH “We hear it so often, over and over again from families,” said Dr. Phillip St. Louis, a neurosurgeon and director of Florida Hospital’s NPH Program. Harper “went to three or four different doctors before they finally found it. And her case is not unusual. But many health care providers aren’t aware of (the condition).” And that’s as frustrating for families as it is for doctors and medical researchers. After doctors told them Alicia might have Alzheimer’s disease, her husband and their four adult children had to accept that she might never be the same. “To me, it was just a consequence of life,” her husband, Nildo, said. “You just have to live

with it.” The condition is often characterized by how quickly a patient seems to age, St. Louis said. “Let’s say you have Uncle Joe, who you’ve seen, and when you see him six months later, he has trouble remembering things from one minute to the other. And his walking is incredibly bad,” said St. Louis. “It’s very easy for someone to say, ‘Well, he’s 70, he’s getting old.’ But it should be a much more gradual decline.” Alicia’s MRI showed she had enlarged ventricles in her brain — a sign of NPH — but no significant atrophy of the brain, which would have signaled some type of dementia. Afterward, St. Louis suggested implanting a shunt in her head to continuously drain the excess fluid. The Harpers noticed the change within a week. “This is what’s so amazing,” said Nildo, 81. “The symptoms disappeared like magic — without medication.”

Goossen, a ballplayer who could laugh at self, dies at 65 New York Times News Service Yogi Berra called him overweight and Jim Bouton, the pitcher-turned-author, said he was the only teammate on the short-lived Seattle Pilots who interested him, because he could laugh at himself. Greg Goossen died at 65 on Feb. 26 at his home in Sherman Oaks, Calif. The cause was thought to be a heart attack, Major League Baseball said.

In Seattle, Goossen, a freeswinging right-handed hitter, led the team in batting with a .309 average. “I would have played here my whole career,” he told an interviewer. Goossen played for 37 teams in the minor, Mexican and major leagues over eight years as a catcher, first baseman and outfielder. “Either everyone wanted me or everyone wanted to get rid of me,” he said in 1996.

June 29, 1935 - Feb. 13, 2011

A celebration of life/memorial service will be held at 5 p.m., on March 10, at Shalom Bayit Synagogue for Carol Sue Tamarkin, beloved mother, grandma, aunt, sister, cousin and friend who passed away on March 1, 2011. Carol was born May 16, 1935, in the Bronx, New York, to Carol Sue Harry and Tamarkin Florence Fleischman Tamarkin. She graduated summa cum laude from National University in San Diego with MFT degree and worked many years as a marriage and family therapist. Carol married Sam Goldberg on April 3, 1958. They later divorced. In 1995, Carol moved to Bend, Oregon, from Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. Carol loved Central Oregon - but she especially loved all her wonderful friends who meant the world to her. Carol was involved for many years with Sacred Art of Living, Taize and Hospice of Bend. In 2009, she moved to Eugene, Oregon to be closer to her daughter and family. Until her retirement, Carol worked at Bend High as a counselor in the teen parent program. She loved each and every one of the teen moms and their children. Carol was a remarkable, giving woman with a big heart. She gave much love to those around her and had a soft spot for those in need. She loved life and had a thirst for knowledge. It was not unusual to find her reading two or three books at one time. She loved classical music, reading, volunteering at the Synagogue, spending time with her granddaughter, Hannah and grandson, Aaron, and traveling. Over the years she traveled to France, Italy, Ireland, Scotland and last year made the trip of a lifetime to Israel. Carol is survived by her daughter, Shereen Stebbins; son-in-law, Craig Stebbins; two grandchildren, Hannah and Aaron all of Eugene; two sons, Jeffery and David Goldberg of San Diego; ex-husband, Sam; niece, Monique Laine of New Jersey and her two children, Brian and Allie; nephew, Michael Sofronski of Brooklyn and his son, Gavin; and many, many friends. A sister, Myra, died previously. Remembrances can be made to FragileX or your favorite charity in Carol's name.

Harvard’s longtime spiritual leader dies By Elaine Woo Los Angeles Times

In a sermon some years ago, the Rev. Peter Gomes, Harvard University’s longtime spiritual leader, offered a precise, if unconventional, definition of hell. He said hell is “being defined by your circumstances, and believing that definition.” Gomes, 68, who died of stroke complications Monday in Boston, was never one to let circumstances or the opinions

of others dictate his sense of himself. He was a black Republican, a Baptist preacher in a stronghold of secularism, a descendant of escaped slaves who rose to become president of the Pilgrim Society. Chosen by Time magazine as “one of the seven most distinguished preachers in America,” he participated in the inaugurations of two presidents, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

‘Ayatollah’ of televised golf dies at 84 By Richard Goldstein New York Times News Service

Frank Chirkinian, who defined televised golf as the innovative executive producer and director for CBS’ coverage of the Masters tournament for 38 consecutive years, died Friday at his home in North Palm Beach, Fla. He was 84. The cause was cancer, CBS Sports said on its website. When Chirkinian first oversaw CBS’ coverage of the Masters at Augusta National in 1959, televised golf was a black-and-white affair with bulky stationary cameras. Chirkinian transformed it into an imaginative spectacle, using more than two dozen mobile cameras as well as a camera in a blimp along with split screens showing two golfers putting at the same time. He cut briskly from hole to hole. He showed his audience where the leaders stood in relation to par as play progressed, not simply their total score, and he placed microphones on the greens to pick up chatter between the golfers and their caddies. He was a commanding presence, known as the Ayatollah for his often brusque orders to his production crew and to the CBS announcers on the course.

James Allen Cook James Allen Cook went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Feb. 16, 2011. His family was by his side. Jim was 85 years old. He was born in Valier, Montana on July 8, 1925 to his parents, James Oliver Cook and Maybel (Coleman) Cook. On December 14, 1946 Jim married his cherished love, Ruby Bergen. They shared 64 wonderful years together following their Lord and raising their family. Jim entered the Air Force on January 9, 1944. He was honorably discharged March 19, 1946 with the rank of staff sergeant. Jim went to work in 1955 for Dotson “T” and Wilma Merriet who became lifelong friends of Jim and Ruby. In 1975, he went to work at Pacific Power and Light as a mechanic. He was talented in his work, taking great pride knowing the equipment in his care ran well. He always had a smile on his face. He retired from PP&L on 1987. Jim was a fine handyman. He could do most anything he wanted to accomplish. He was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Working with wood, Jim loved to make clocks. He carved many walking sticks. Mytlewood was a favorite material he worked with. Jim loved fishing off the Oregon coast. He commercial fished off Newport with his boat, the “Cookie Cutter”. Jim’s last fishing trip was in 2009 with son Ken and only grandson Steven. Besides fishing, Jim enjoyed camping with his family. His favorite lakes were Paulina, Big Cultus, and Odell. He was a successful hunter, bringing home many elk and deer. These special times are much cherished by his son Ken’s family. Jim loved feeding the quail and wildlife that gathered at his former home on Hardy Road off OB Riley road. This residence was the one that Jim and Ruby occupied the longest during their life in Bend. It, became the chosen location for the North Fire Station and Training Center. During their retirement years, he and Ruby became snowbirds, spending many winters in Arizona. They also loved driving their RV to Alaska, spending their summers fishing. The Cook family would all like to thank Dr. Paul Johnson for his loving care given to Jim Cook. He was always available for Jim’s every need and comfort. Dr. Johnson continues to be a great blessing to Jim’s wife and family. Jim is survived by his wife Ruby; his son Kenneth Allen, daughter Paullette, and Ken’s wife Linda; their children Steven Allen and his wife Elizabeth with Jim’s great-grandson Isaiah Allen Cook, and granddaughter Diane Cook-Franklin and her husband Chris with great-grandsons Austin and Evan Franklin. Paulette Sonnenburg with granddaughter Susie Binnell of California and niece Harlene Gregg of Newport. Preceding Jim in death were his sisters Clover and Lucille. Jim and Ruby were members of The First Baptist Church on Oregon Avenue for many years. They moved to the newly established Eastmont Church, helping it grow and thrive. A memorial service celebrating Jim’s life will be held on March 12 at 1:00 PM at Eastmont Church’s lower building at 62425 Eagle Rd. in Bend (corner of Neff and Eagle). Following the service there will be refreshments served at Stone Lodge Retirement Center, 1460 NE 27th. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations to Eastmont School Scholarship fund be given in Jim’s name. Please send to: Eastmont Church; 62425 Eagle Road; Bend, Oregon 97701

Wildfires Continued from B1 So does Misha Williams, president of the Deschutes River Woods Neighborhood Association, which was identified as part of a high-risk area. “It’s scary,” Williams said. “Here in Central Oregon or the Bend area, we’re living in a forest, and it’s really hard to keep people’s awareness of that in the forefront, so there’s a constant need for education.” The neighborhood has big lots and beautiful trees, she said, but because of decades of fire suppression and lack of awareness, it’s “basically a disaster waiting for a match.” With funds from Project Wildfire, the neighborhood has participated in a “sweat equity” program in which residents clear their property of lowhanging branches, flammable vegetation and more, while a grant pays for waste collection.

Williams would like to see an emphasis on bringing the neighborhood’s unpaved roads up to county standards, to make sure emergency vehicles can get in and people can get out, but doesn’t know if that’s feasible through the plan. Being on the top of the list gives neighborhoods in southwest, west, southeast, west urban growth reserve and northwest areas priority for fuels-reduction funds as long as neighborhoods are willing to participate, said Tom Fay, manager of the Deschutes County Rural Fire Protection District No. 2.

Sunset View Estates did a lot of work cleaning up their neighborhood and got their hazard risk reduced, Fay said. Awbrey Glen received recognition from the national Firewise Communities program that considers not just defensible space, but building materials, landscaping, access roads, address signs and more. The draft plan also addresses public lands around Bend — it lists thousands of acres of Forest Service thinning, mowing and burning treatments that have reduced wildfire risk around Bend’s neighborhoods. “Our community is saying that we think these are our most vulnerable areas, that whole west side,” Lighthall said. “When the Forest Service has money, we want them to do projects starting on our boundaries and going out.” Kate Ramsayer can be reached at 541-617-7811 or kramsayer@bendbulletin.com.

Heroes Continued from B1 Helping his fellow veterans discover the sport he loves is always rewarding, Jones said. “I just think it’s great how they get so many people involved,” he said. “It’s just been an honor to be up here these last couple years.” Bill Gray, 57, of Coos Bay, took up skiing only recently. When he was 20, he left his naval base in Long Beach, Calif., to drive home to Oregon, and severed his spinal cord in a car crash. Gray said he’s never gotten used to being paralyzed from the waist down, but he has learned to adapt. With retirement on the horizon, he decided he should take up some new recreational pursuits to keep himself busy, and signed on with Oregon Adaptive Sports to learn how

aware of the 15 inches of snow that had fallen at Mt. Bachelor the night before, and had willingly skipped what promised to be a great powder day to ski Hoodoo with the veterans. “You’re not missing anything being here,” he said. “It’s a great experience.” Kevin McCormack, a board member for Oregon Adaptive Sports, was skiing in Canada with Hansen in 2003 when he damaged his spinal cord in a crash. About a year after his accident, McCormack decided he wanted to return to the snow, and turned to the organization to figure out how to get started. “It’s this program that really allowed me to reach out to life again and realize I could still be an active participant in life and skiing,” McCormick said. “It’s going to be different, but it’s still possible.

RIP CITY! A weekend with ‘the biggest show in town’ — the Portland Trail Blazers

After Bend artist John Sweet saw the feature “Mom, you’re one tough art critic,” he sat down and wrote a response to The Bulletin. The article, which ran in this newspaper Feb. 18, explored the burden of living with prolific young Picassos and their creations. Sweet, 56, a fused-glass artist from Bend, has a better idea for kids’ art than the recycling bin: a fused-glass piece inspired by your child’s drawing or painting. During a 2008 trip to Tacoma, Wash., Sweet saw the Kids Design Glass program at the Museum of Glass. Each month, the museum invites kids to create their own designs based on artwork displayed at the museum, whose glass-blowing team selects one entry to be interpreted into glass. Two are made: one for the winner and another to display at the museum. Sweet was a bit intimidated because he thinks glass blowing is “a pretty cool process.” However, he was also “really intrigued by the idea of taking kids’ art and translating it into glass.” Glass fusing is a process that involves using a kiln to join pieces of glass, according to warmglass.com.

Starting at guard tonight for YOUR PORT-land TRAYYYYL Blazers, AN-dreeee MILL-ler!” “It’s the biggest show in town on a regular basis,” said Kevin Williams, a former professional athlete who now serves as the Blazers’ corporate partnership manager. Color guards from the various armed services raised their flags during a stirring rendition of the national anthem. Finally the game began, and the hometown favorites carried a steady lead through the first half of action. Denver got hot in the third quarter, passed the Blazers and stayed on top until the very end. See Trail Blazers / C4

THE BULLETIN • SUNDAY, MARCH 6, 2011

PORTLAND — he name was intended only for the basketball court, but it became a moniker for an entire basketball-crazy metropolis. Halfway through the Portland Trail Blazers’ virgin 1970-71 season in the National Basketball Association, guard Jim Barnett — five years removed from an all-American career at the University of Oregon — hit a desperation jump shot against the Los Angeles Lakers. Hometown radio announcer Bill Schonely responded with the phrase that became the trademark of his long broadcast career. And a legend was born. “Rip City!” exclaimed Schonely as the basketball tore through the net, barely grazing the iron rim. The words became a regular part of Schonely’s play-by-play repertoire. Whenever a Blazer sharpshooter like Geoff Petrie or Dave Twardzik would swish an outside jumper, “Rip City!” rang through the Portland radio waves. And six years later, when the Bill Walton-led Trail Blazers won the NBA championship, the phrase united the city. During that championship season, the Blazers were a catalyst in bringing Portlanders together. Men and women of all ages, political and religious beliefs, and economic standards rallied around their team. And although Schonely retired after the 1997-98 season, the phrase is alive and well in Portland today. As the only high-profile professional sports team in Oregon (to be joined later this year by the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer), the Trail Blazers draw fans from hundreds of miles in all directions. Last week, I joined the throngs at the Rose Garden, the beautiful arena where the Blazers play their home games. And what I discovered along with the game was a Las Vegas-style spectacle.

Concert to benefit musician Zurflu Friends of longtime Bend resident Erin Zurflu will hold a benefit concert and silent auction Thursday to help offset costs associated with her impending medical treatment for cancer. Zurflu — an athlete, musician and medical student — was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Her friend and band mate, Erin Cole-Baker, says the disease is curable, but that Zurflu faces surgery in Seattle later this month and “huge” medical bills. In response, Zurflu’s friends have organized “Breathe EZ,” which will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday at Century Center (70 S.W. Century Drive, Bend). The show will feature music by Mosley Wotta, Sara Jackson-Holman, Chris Beland, Cole-Baker and Zurflu (aka The Erins), and the band Elliot. Food and beer will be available, and there will be a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses. Organizers are asking for a minimum $10 donation at the door. Contact: ecolebaker@gmail.com, 541-848-2044, or search for “Breathe EZ” on Facebook. — From staff reports

Small objects can be deadly to pets

Celebrities vie for Donald’s approval By Chuck Barney Contra Costa Times

Dear Abby: In our family, pets are irreplaceable, full- fledged, beloved members. One of them was a beautiful, very affectionate cat we had rescued as an abandoned kitten. Tragically, he didn’t make it through an operation we hoped would save his life. His death was a needless accident, and we are writing this in the hope that you will print it to warn other readers so no other animals will die in a similar fashion. On the day before he died, he suddenly stopped eating and drinking. He became lethargic and vomited several times. Our vet diagnosed him with a bowel obstruction. Apparently, he had eaten a piece of a palm from Palm Sunday. Unable to pass through his system, it had perforated his bowel. The damage was too extensive to fix. The vet later told us about many other items he had removed throughout his experience: Qtips, cotton balls, coins, twist ties, string, buttons, Easter grass, Christmas tree icicles, etc. Abby, please warn your readers to pick up anything that’s small enough for a pet to put in its mouth, and to keep anything a pet might be tempted to taste out of reach. If you do, perhaps our precious kitty’s death will not have been in vain. — In Mourning in Pennsylvania Dear in Mourning: I’m sorry about the untimely loss of your adored pet. I, too, hope your letter will alert pet owners — as well as parents and caregivers of small children. Dear Abby: Do dreams have a meaning? I have the same disturbing dream over and over again. It happens often. The scenario is the same, but the place in the dream varies. I wake up feeling anxious and can’t fall back to sleep. Do you have any advice or suggestion on what I can do about this? You have helped many people; can you help me? — Sleepless in Kansas City

DEAR ABBY Dear Sleepless: Some dreams have a “meaning” — others do not. Your dream may be an attempt by your subconscious to work through something in your life that you haven’t been able to resolve consciously, which is why the dream is recurring. However, it’s important that you understand that dreams usually aren’t literal. Because the dream is causing sleeplessness and anxiety, it may help to discuss it with a psychologist. Just talking about it may help the problem go away. Dear Abby: Our group has a problem. One of the women takes out her dental floss and uses it at the table regardless of where we are — a restaurant, banquet, anyplace. We have all asked her please not to, but she’s the type who, if you tell her she’s wrong, insists she’s always right. According to her, flossing one’s teeth at the table is acceptable. She’s in her 60s and she’s a representative for our AARP group, which means she attends a great many functions. She reads your column as we all do. So please address this subject. Thank you. — Grossed Out in Massachusetts Dear Grossed Out: With pleasure! Flossing one’s teeth should be done in private, in the powder room. Under no circumstances is it proper to do it at the dinner table. For her to insist upon doing it in spite of being told it makes others uncomfortable is extremely rude, so tell her to chew on that!

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

“The Celebrity Apprentice” 9 tonight, NBC “The circus is back in town and you’re looking at the ringmaster!” declares Donald Trump as he draws the curtain on Season 11 of his reality-TV mainstay. Oh, and what a wacky circus it promises to be. Putting their egos — and their issues — on display will be Gary Busey, La Toya Jackson, Jose Canseco, Meat Loaf, Star Jones and Richard Hatch, just to name a few. We say just bring the crazy, and give the show’s casting director a big, fat, sloppy kiss. “Taking on Tyson” 10 tonight, Animal Planet Who knew that the famous (and infamous) former boxing champ Mike Tyson found “tranquility” among pigeons? In “Taking on Tyson,” he spreads his wings by returning to his Brooklyn roots to raise — and race — his feathery friends. “Breakout Kings” 10 tonight, A&E In the new drama “Breakout Kings,” U.S. marshals team up with a group of convicts to chase down fugitives. It comes from a couple of producers who helped make the addictive, but utterly ridiculous, “Prison Break.” “The Event” 8 p.m. Monday, NBC Now, will you watch it? After a lengthy hiatus, “The Event” returns for a two-hour midseason relaunch with producers hoping that the ratings can eventually match the hype. “All About Aubrey” 10 p.m. Monday, Oxygen “All About Aubrey” is a new reality series that finds former

“The Mentalist” 10 p.m. Thursday, CBS Maybe golf isn’t such a tranquil game, after all. Tonight, on “The Mentalist,” Patrick (Simon Baker) investigates after a doctor is murdered on a golf course. Perhaps he didn’t let someone play through. “Supernanny” 8 p.m. Friday, ABC Uh-oh, the “Supernanny” (Jo Frost) has her work cut out for her this week. She must intervene in a household where a woman who wants to be a “fun mom” bribes her kids with junk food to get them to behave.

Can she hit the high notes again? “Behind the Music” 10 p.m. Monday, VH1 “Behind the Music” returns for a new season with a profile of hip-hop superstar Nelly. For the first time, he opens up about the death of his sister and his relationship with Ashanti. “Glee” 8 p.m. Tuesday, Fox After earning rave reviews last November, Gwyneth Paltrow returns for another guest appearance on “Glee.” And this time there are some romantic sparks between the sex-ed

teacher and Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison). “The Real World” 10 p.m. Wednesday, MTV The granddaddy of reality TV shows, “The Real World,” returns for its — gasp — 25th session. This time, we head to Las Vegas, where all the partying and heavy petting takes place at a posh pad in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. “The Big Bang Theory” 8 p.m. Thursday, CBS There’s trouble ahead for Leonard (Johnny Galecki) on “The Big Bang Theory.” He’s forced to choose between two women when his new girlfriend, Priya (guest star Aarti Mann), demands that he stop

KYA Kya is a 2 year old tabby that was brought to the shelter because sadly her owners could no longer care for her. Kya has been an indoor cat and uses a litter box. Kya is shy and is looking for a nice, quiet forever home to call her own. If Kya is a purrfect kitty for you, then come to the shelter and meet her today!

Blake Lively credits mom for fashion sense The Associated Press NEW YORK — Blake Lively’s style has inspired many, but she says it was her mother who helped to shape her own fashion sensibilities. Lively — the new face of Chanel’s “Mademoiselle” handbag — was honored by the famed fashion label at a dinner Wednesday night. At the event, Lively gave credit to her mother for educating her about fashion. Lively says her mother was a model, so she was always exposed to beautiful clothes. Her mother would also make clothes and bring her daughters with her to buy fabrics. Lively said besides the right look, confidence is key in making an outfit work. Though critics may disagree on one of her

Trail Blazers fans wave white wands in an effort to distract an opposition player attempting a free throw. Portland players, in white, jostle for rebounding position as a long jump shot by Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez seems to hang in midair. The opposing Denver Nuggets, in blue, narrowly lost to Portland in this February 25 game. The only major professional sports team in Oregon, the Blazers are consistently among the top-drawing basketball teams in the country.

Trail Blazers Continued from C1 Then, in a 39-second span of pure sports drama that could not have been scripted, just before the final buzzer, Portland drained a trio of three-point baskets to tie the game at 97. The Blazers won by a single point, 107-106, in overtime. The crowd went crazy. Meanwhile, the nonbasketball performances continued through the game. At halftime, an acrobatic troupe hypnotized the crowd with its magic. The Blazer Dancers kept the maledominated audience enthralled. But for me and many other visitors, the evening’s biggest moment — other than the Portland victory, of course — occurred midway through the second quarter. Where was Bill Schonely when they needed him? James Collier, a 23-year-old Blazer fan of substantial girth, was selected from the sellout crowd of 20,630 to attempt to make a basket from center court, 47 feet on the fly. His prize, should he succeed: a new Toyota Tundra truck from the Portland Metro Toyota Dealers. A southpaw, Collier attempted a one-handed shot put. The ball got plenty of elevation, looked as if it would fall short, but kept drifting toward the backboard. Rip city! Swish. Nothing but net. Four years had passed since the last time a fan had suc-

ceeded in the midcourt promotion. In the intervening time, the Blazers had sold out 142 consecutive games, Williams told me. The look on Collier’s face suggested that he could hardly believe what he had done.

Portland sports bars Had I not been able to get tickets to the game, I would have found a seat at a nearby sports bar and watched on the big screen. My first choice would have been the Spirit of 77 Sports Bar and Grill. I didn’t stay, but dropped by for a light meal before the game and was duly impressed. Facing the southeast corner of the Oregon Convention Center, no more than a half-dozen blocks from the Rose Garden, Spirit of 77 pays homage to the Trail Blazers’ 1977 championship team and everything it represented. “That team crossed all social lines,” said general manager Tim Davey, who was in fact a young child in Boston at the time. “No, I wasn’t here, but I’ve seen what the Red Sox and Celtics have done to Boston, and I know it was the same in Portland. “In Spirit of 77, we’ve wanted to re-create the environment where everyone rose and fell together. And at the same time, we’re mindful of providing quality food and drink.” Spirit is owned by the same entrepreneurial team that has the Ace Hotel and the highly regarded Clyde Common restau-

rant in downtown Portland. The sports bar’s small-bites menu — cocktail ribs, shrimp, hush puppies with jalapeño jam — is a big step beyond most others of its genre. The largest of its numerous flat-screen televisions is immense, 16 feet by 19 feet. But Spirit never loses sight of its quirky “P-town” identity, with an indoor bicycle parking area, menus designed like sports trading cards and such carnival games as “Pop-a-Shot” basketball, where players rapid-fire free throws. Elsewhere around the city, these other sports bars are worth checking out: Henry’s 12th Street Tavern occupies the extensively renovated former Blitz-Weinhard Brewery, a Portland institution for 140 years. The original brewhouse is now the dining room and bar area; the malt storage facility has been turned into the kitchen and lounge. Flat-screen TVs hang on exposed brick walls as sports fans lean on brass rails to watch games. Don’t be surprised to find many Blazers fans hanging out at Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub after the game. This longtime local favorite in the historic Skidmore district is especially popular among the international community, as it never misses airing international soccer and rugby matches. But when the Blazers are, well, blazing, they trump all. Claudia’s Sports Pub & Grill opened in the Hawthorne neighborhood in 1958, and more than a half-century later it remains in the founding Spathas family. The building is nondescript and the fare is mainly pizza and burgers, but its faithful patrons rarely consider going elsewhere.

Blazer-friendly hotels There may be others, but I know of only two Portland hotels — the Nines and the Hotel Monaco — that have special promotions tied to Trail Blazers’ home games. Opened in spring 2009, the Nines occupies the upper nine floors of the century-old, 15-story Meier & Frank department store building, opposite Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse. An impeccable

restoration by the Starwood Hotels & Resorts corporation has wedded modern hospitality with historic elegance. When this glazed terra-cotta structure was built in 1909, Meier & Frank was the largest retail store west of the Mississippi River. The department-store tradition is carried on today by Macy’s, which fills the six lower floors. Hotel guests enter the Nines curbside, where they are greeted by valets and immediately whisked up to the eighth floor by high-speed elevators. Behind the chic reception area is a lobby lounge and the Urban Farmer restaurant. Meeting and convention facilities are on the sixth and seventh floors; 331 guest rooms and suites occupy the ninth through 14th floors. Departure, a penthouse restaurant with a modern Asian theme, also has a sleek bar that draws a fashionable late-night crowd. The “Swish” promotion brands the Nines as the only “Official Hotel Sponsor of NBA Basketball in Portland,” designated by the league and the Trail Blazers’ head office. Under this program, the hotel offers a room rate starting at $169 per night. Included is a $20 per-person credit at the Urban Farmer, which serves three meals a day including very upscale dinners (steaks run $29 to $60). The Hotel Monaco Portland,

a member of the San Franciscobased Kimpton Group of luxury boutique hotels, offers a “Slam Dunk” package that promises 20 percent off its best available room rate, typically $109. It applies through April 14, the end of the Blazers’ regular season. Guests don’t get a restaurant credit, but they receive a voucher for an elaborate “Blazer Bloody Mary” with breakfast at the hotel’s Red Star Tavern and Roast House. The Monaco is another reinvented department store — Lipman Wolfe, built in 1912. Every one of the 221 guest rooms and suites has a teddy bear on its bed because “Teddy” was a symbol of Lipman Wolfe.

C OV ER S T ORY From previous page Kimpton took over in 1996 and transformed the 10-story building with a design scheme inspired by Portland’s public gardens. The Nines and the Monaco are a mere two blocks apart. Guests at either property can hop aboard the MAX Light Rail line and take it directly from their lodging to the Rose Garden, avoiding traffic and parking issues. There is no charge for the rail service. For fans who want to walk to the Rose Garden, several hotels are located within a few blocks. Most convenient are the Crowne Plaza — a medium-size business travelers’ hotel with a fullservice restaurant and lounge — and the bare-bones Econo Lodge. The latter is a satisfactory choice for budget watchers, located just off the Broadway Bridge and directly opposite the north entrance to the Rose Garden.

Daytime diversions If you’ve built a weekend around a Blazers game, but are looking for other activities to fill your day as you await a 7:30 p.m. game time, these are a few suggestions: The Portland Art Museum

THE BULLETIN • Sunday, March 6, 2011 C5 The lobby lounge, foreground, and Urban Farmer Restaurant share the eighth-floor courtyard of the Nines hotel in downtown Portland. As the official hotel sponsor of the Portland Trail Blazers, the Nines offers its guests restaurant credits when they stay here on game nights.

In 2000, it added the Schnitzer Center for Northwest Art and the Grande

By Arline and Sam Bleecker When Lupe King stepped aboard Cunard’s newly minted Queen Elizabeth in New York for its maiden world voyage in January, not only was it the beginning of the ship’s global service but also King’s first day of retirement. We should all be so lucky. King was doing what a lot of us wish we could do, except worry about the practicality of leaving home for months at a time. She learned that, though the desire to go to sea is impulsive, the planning can’t be. For their first globetrotting adventure, Lupe and husband Daniel prepared for six months before leaving on their multi-month sojourn, arranging for everything from automatic billing to a live-in pet sitter. Both have been teaching at a Milwaukee community college, where he continues to work as an instructor. The Kings are but two of nearly 800 passengers on Queen Elizabeth’s debut circumnavigation who will call the vessel home for 103 days while they visit 38 ports worldwide.

Globetrotters Compared with other world travelers, however, the Kings are just getting their feet wet. The record for globetrotting is held by a couple who have spanned the globe 25 times with Cunard and another couple who have spent more than 11 years, in total, aboard one or another of the line’s vessels, said Robert Howie, the hotel manager of the 90,900ton Queen Elizabeth. Avid challengers to the world cup of cruising are Raymond and Leonnie Petitpren, with homes on the Gold Coast of Australia

tarium that doubles as a theater in the round, an Omnimax theater, a science store and a naval submarine, the USS Blueback, permanently docked outside. Rich in galleries and restaurants, the Pearl District is a great place to spend an afternoon wandering. In adjacent Chinatown, the Lan Su (“Awakening Orchid”) Chinese Garden is the largest Ming Dynasty urban garden in the United States.

Ronde Center for Native American Art. Facing PAM is the Oregon History Center, notable for an eight-story-high trompe l’oeil mural overlooking a spacious plaza. The “Oregon, My Oregon” exhibit occupies an entire floor with more than 50 separate displays interpreting state history — from ancient Native Americans to modern corporate cul-

ture — through artifacts, documents, photographs and video. Washington Park, in the wooded hills that rise above the west side of downtown Portland, holds enough attractions to fill a full day. Here are the 64-acre Oregon Zoo, famed for its Asian elephant breeding program; the Children’s Museum 2nd Generation, a treasure trove of handson activities; the World Forestry

Center, a conservation-oriented museum; the 185-acre Hoyt Arboretum, more than 1,000 species of plants; the Japanese Garden, actually composed of five separate gardens; and the International Rose Text Garden, with 8,000 flowering plants that gave Portland its original nickname, “The Rose City.” The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) sits on the east bank of the Willamette River opposite downtown. Housed in a former Pacific Gas & Electric substation, it boasts six huge exhibit halls, a plane-

Circling the globe The Queen Elizabeth left Southampton, England, on its world cruise Jan. 5, reaching New York, its secondary embarkation point, Jan. 13. The major ports on the itinerary from there: Jan. 29 — Los Angeles Feb. 22 — Sydney March 19 — Singapore March 31 — Dubai, United Arab Emirates April 19 — Southampton April 26 — New York

and near Daytona Beach, Fla. They have circumnavigated the globe 15 times, 13 with Cunard. For this couple, cruising is almost an addiction. When not globetrotting, they take Christmas cruises or weeklong sail-aways. In particular, this maritime pair not only enjoy the ports, especially discovering unique restaurants at each stop, but also mingling with people of all nationalities, seeing old world-voyager friends, sharing camaraderie among passengers and crew, and, like many others, participating in the pomp and circumstance aboard Cunard’s very British trio of oceangoing queens: Elizabeth, Mary and Victoria. The Petitprens, for instance, relish ballroom dancing, a popular staple on the ship, as well as the line’s many formal nights; indeed, for about a third of the evenings aboard the vessel, tuxes and gowns are de rigueur, while for the remainder suit jackets are required. The regally appointed Queen Elizabeth struck a chord with the Petitprens. “We think people just look bet-

ter in formal attire,” Raymond Petitpren noted. The vessel embodies the glamour of high society in the 1930s and 1940s. The Art Deco decor pays homage to the first Queen Elizabeth, launched in 1938, with double- and triple-deck public areas and intricately detailed interiors replete with rich wood paneling, mosaics, gleaming chandeliers and cool marbles. Howie noted that the average age of world-cruise passengers aboard the Elizabeth’s maiden journey is 68, and fares on the 2,068-passenger vessel for the world cruise range from about $18,000 per person to a tad shy of $200,000 per person for the upper aerie of Queen’s Grille suites, including even some duplex apartments. For the Kings, their journey on the Queen will run about $70,000 for the nearly four-month voyage, excluding the inevitable addons such as excursions, wines and spirits, and expenditures for souvenirs and memorabilia. The Petitprens estimate that couples should expect to spend about another third to half of the fare on such extras.

Are you ready? A veteran of a dozen world cruises himself, Howie cautions couples not to plunge in without sampling voyages of two weeks or longer. The Petitprens agree. Know yourself and make certain you won’t get cabin fever gazing out to endless seas for months at a time. (Of course, if you don’t want the whole shebang, you need only book segments of the circumnavigation.) The experienced Petitprens also advise that world cruisers plan their wardrobe carefully. Between formal nights and

changing climates, you must think twice about what you will wear, they said. Howie noted the importance of the itinerary in determining not only your garb but also in satisfying your wanderlust for exotic locales. Howie and the Petitprens agree that it’s vital to match your personality to that of the cruise line and to see if the entertainment and onboard enrichment programs suit your tastes. With these tips under your belt, you can confidently set sail for the farthest reaches on the seven seas. Plus, other luxe lines such as Princess Cruises, Holland America Lines, Celebrity and Crystal Cruises, among others, offer globetrotting vacations. For information contact a travel agent.

Today’s teens have a wide view of their world. Here are the travel dreams of three young people eager to explore. 1. Raft the Middle Fork of the Salmon. Ted Thompson longs to float the Middle Fork of the storied Salmon River in search of whitewater thrills and the chance to reel in a brown or rainbow trout. “I love rafting,� the 17-year old from Livingston, Mont., says. “I also love to fish, and I’ve heard that the Middle Fork is the best way to get both experiences.� Contact: 1-888-831-7526; www.mtsobek.com (search “Salmon River�). 2. Explore New Zealand. Caitlan McNamara, 16, hopes to get to New Zealand. The film version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy initially piqued her interest. However, the Albuquerque, N.M., native’s current fascination lies in the rugged outdoor terrain, the friendly people and the ad-

venture opportunities. National Geographic Student Expeditions offers summer outings for teens interested in visiting this pair of islands in the South Pacific. The trips include glacier trekking, working with wildlife biologists and taking part in a Maori feast. Contact: 1-877-877-8759; www.ngstudentexpeditions. com/destinations/newzealand. 3. Prague, Czech Republic. Jimmy Paddison wants to visit the capital of the Czech Republic. He has heard it’s very beautiful and has a rich heritage. The 17-year-old from San Francisco is likely to enjoy visiting the historic center of the city, which straddles the Vltava River. Visitors stroll cobblestone streets and choose from dozens of museums and theaters. Among the most popular stops for visitors is the hilltop Prague Castle, founded in the ninth century. Contact:www.praguewelcome.cz/en.

Stephen Saint-Onge has done his share of couples counseling. “Couples will stop me on the street and ask for advice for their homes,� says the designer and author of “No Place Like Home: Tips & Techniques for Real Family-Friendly Home Design� (Wiley, $19.99), “because they know I understand what issues they’re facing.� His advice? Keep communication open. And if all else fails, brace yourself to accept your spouse’s favorite ugly chair. Saint-Onge gave us his pointers for keeping in sync while designing your first place together. What’s most important for couples to remember when planning a first home together? It is going to be a representation of who they are

Q: A:

for the first time — as a couple — not just one over the other but a home that should truly capture what they are all about as a family. Like in any part of the relationship overall, communication is key and feeling like you can vocalize what you are hoping for should be OK too. What’s the best way to start figuring out a style that works for both partners? If you have the luxury of time, if you are not moving in tomorrow, I’m all about creating your own look-book together. Simply put, you create a journal or sketchbook that gathers all the things that represent your home style. Start gathering images from magazines, newspapers or advertisements. Maybe a friend’s house has a great solution for storage and you snap a picture of it to paste into your book. The point is to have a record of what you like.

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, March 6, 2011: This year, express your innate creativity. You know how to choose the right words and have others respond in a congenial manner. Use these skills to build greater security. You often discover that others take a lot for granted. Establish strong boundaries. If you are single, you attract many people. Make sure “that person” is interested for the right reasons. If you are attached, your goals seem to diverge. This might only be for this year. Still, you can work together to achieve your independent wishes. It might be fun. ARIES is direct and forthright. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Put your best face forward, even if you are quietly questioning things. A friend, as always, comes through for you. Take some much-needed personal, private time with a special friend. Go off and do something totally different. Tonight: All smiles. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You might want to observe a close friend or loved one, especially if this person has been acting strangely. He or she might not be able to verbalize what ails him or her. A little quiet time recharges your batteries. Tonight: Not to be found. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Friends and loved ones

surround you. See the efforts of others. A partner or close loved one could be controlling and demanding. Accept him or her. You cannot change this person. Tonight: Where the gang is. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Bring family together, especially if you’re hosting an out-of-town visitor. Someone who might be jealous could try to mess up your plans.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Reach out for someone at a distance whom you rarely speak to but adore. You might enjoy playing catch-up more than you realize. Plans could change radically as you decide to take off in another direction! Tonight: Relax your mind as well as your body. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Relate to others directly. They might want to convey a message but could forget. Your efforts to help someone or to pitch in touches the other party. A partner or loved one cannot indulge you enough. Let it happen.

relax. You often push yourself way too hard. A close friend shares. Even if you don’t agree, you can do so nicely. Make it OK to say “no” to an invitation or to cancel plans. You are not bionic! Tonight: Ever playful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Sometimes you cannot contain your childlike energy. Why should you? Try not to cause yourself a money problem by overdoing it and splurging.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Stay centered, knowing yourself and accepting your limits. If you are overly tired or pushing too hard, chill.

Comedian, reb randed: Chris Rock, stage actor By Jon Caramanica New York Times News Service

When it comes to Chris Rock, it’s the gait above all. Sure, there’s the voice too, a purring rasp that never sounds at peace, and the eyes, which are emphatic and precise. But anyone who’s seen Rock walk the stage during one of his comedy shows knows his stride cold: the long, slightly jagged steps that seem to eat up the floor beneath him; the mild bop in his strut; the liquidity of his movement, as if he’s engaged in one very long motion, not hundreds of small ones. So it’s noticeable when Rock, 46, walks into the Harlem restaurant Sylvia’s with small, quiet steps, as he did last month. A goatee shot out at an angle from his chin, and his head, from which no shortage of outlandish, blue insults have issued over the years, was tucked into a soft hat. This is Rock in repose. And in re-evaluation mode too. For the last few weeks he has been learning how to walk a stage that’s not his to roam, in preparation for his Broadway debut in “The (BLANK) With the Hat,” (the title contains an obscenity), which begins previews on March 15. In the play — written by Stephen Adly Guirgis and directed by the Tony Award winner Anna Shapiro — Rock plays Ralph D., an irresponsible 12-step sponsor dodging his own demons by toying with those of his sponsee. He is a tragicomic character trapped in a maze of misrepresentations, and also a jerk.

Fred R. Conrad / New York Times News Service

Chris Rock is getting ready for his Broadway debut in a Stephen Adly Guirgis play that begins previews on March 15.

For Rock, known for his highvolume tirades on race and sex, it’s an opportunity to slow down, and also to not be in charge. Rock, committed to a four-month run, described Guirgis’ dark comedy, his first engagement with the theater apart from the 2007 installment of 24 Hour Plays, the annual stunt theater extravaganza, as “something I can be in, not be.” That was crucial for Rock, for whom Broadway hasn’t been a lifelong dream. “There might have been two Playbills in my house, one of them was ‘Purlie,’” he said, referring to the 1970s Broadway musical. “I can’t say I looked at it the way I looked at stand-up.” To make the transition he has needed to learn some new habits. “He paces the stage like a puma,” Shapiro said. “Now he’s learning to take that wide focus and make it a laser focus. He’s learning that the most important person onstage is his partner.” Guirgis said, “If people are going to come for the stand-up routine, they’re going to be disappointed.” Instead what they’ll get is a signature Guirgis production,

with rough-hewn characters who talk tough and also smart. There are laughs, but they’re mostly derived from tragedy and hostility, not necessarily Rock’s engines. About acting in this play Rock said: “This is not for the arrogant. You thought you were humble until you started doing a play. Ten years ago I’d have probably got fired already, or I’d have quit, and they’d have been happy I quit.” (The producers may be protective of Rock, as a reporter was not permitted to watch rehearsals.) But Rock’s priorities have changed in the last 10 years. Once one of the most visible comedians in the country, he has been in slow retreat, his career cool since he hosted the Oscars in 2005. He has been the primary star of only two live-action comedies since 2001, when he starred in both “Down to Earth” and “Pootie Tang.” In 2003 there was “Head of State” and in 2007 “I Think I Love My Wife,” which he also directed and adapted (with Louis C.K.) from an Eric Rohmer movie. In between there have been ensemble pieces like “Death at a Funeral” and “Grown Ups,” and small parts in “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan” and others. More notably, you often hear his voice, but that’s it, whether as the narrator of “Everybody Hates Chris,” the sitcom based on his childhood that ran from 2005 to 2009, or as the wily zebra Marty in the “Madagascar” movies, the third of which is filming now. “Animation is a gift from God,” Rock said. “Somebody gives you an animated gig and pays you, you did something nice to somebody along the way.” But while the play might be moving up a weight class, Rock sees it as an opportunity for smallness. He marks up his script with questions and notes, eagerly asks questions of Shapiro and Guirgis and admits excitedly, “I’m definitely the low man on the totem pole, but I’ll be ready for opening day.”

Glass Continued from C1 Glass softens with the application of heat, and “if you continue to apply heat, the glass will become more fluid and flow together,” according to the site. “When the right kind of glass is heated and then cooled properly, the resulting fused-glass piece will be solid and unbroken.” Sweet grew up in Alaska, where he first became a photographer, then a book binder. In 2005, he set out to learn glass fusing for the cover of the guest book he was designing for his daughter’s wedding, he says. After that museum visit, Sweet mulled over the possibility of making art inspired by kids’ drawings, and said as much to a friend. “One time when she was over, she said, ‘My 8-year-old grandson did a couple of pictures when he was here this summer,’ and I said, ‘Well, bring them by and I’ll see if I can deal with them,’” Sweet recalls. The boy’s drawings were of a dragon and a unicorn.

John Sweet is a Bend book binder who got into fused-glass artistry after a 2005 project designing a guest book for a wedding. “The dragon was fairly straightforward; the unicorn was a little bit more involved,” Sweet says. The artist did three kiln firings for the dragon, but the unicorn required seven to get the texture and color layered on just right. “I don’t know that I consider myself an artist,” he says. “I have fun doing it, and I’ve sold some pieces, so I guess that makes me an artist. It’s always rewarding

when somebody buys something that you did.” Sweet displayed his children’s glass works at a Seattle art show in December, and though people there expressed interest, so far, “nobody’s taken me up on the possibility of what I might be able to do with their children’s art,” he says. “I’ve always been intrigued with kids’ art,” says Sweet, who

Seven-on-seven nonscholastic leagues are changing the game, for better or worse By Pete Thamel New York Times News Service

HALLANDALE, Fla. — Sony Michel is still a high school freshman, yet he has shown flashes of Hall of Fame potential. A tailback for American Heritage in Plantation, Fla., Michel has rushed for 39 touchdowns and nearly 3,500 yards in two varsity seasons. “He’s on par to be Emmitt Smith, on par to be Deion Sanders, on par to be Jevon Kearse,” said Larry Blustein, a recruiting analyst for the Miami Herald who has covered the beat for 40 years. “He’ll be one of the legendary players in this state.” Michel’s recruitment will also be a test case for a rapidly evolving college football landscape. The proliferation of seven-on-seven nonscholastic football has transformed the high school game, once defined by local rivalries, state championships and the occasional all-star game, into a national enterprise.

Crook County heads to the 4A state tournament at Corvallis’ Gill Coliseum; it’s the Cowgirls’ first trip to the state tournament’s final site since 1996, when the program played in the old Class 4A (the large-school classification at the time). The Cowgirls will play Henley of Klamath Falls in the state quarterfinals Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. “It was really exciting for the girls to get this win,” said Crook County coach Dave Johnson. “We set the goal at the begin-

Madras wins big, advances

The thought of tailgate-free Sundays and aimless channel surfing might distress diehard National Football League fans, but not everyone stands to suffer should the league’s labor dispute lead to the cancellation of games in the fall. As owners and players try to stave off a lengthy work stoppage and fans brace for the possible disruption of their long-held Sunday traditions, the sports leagues that for years have been bruised by competition with the powerhouse NFL stand ready to leap onto a vacated stage. “It does help everyone else,” said Richard Powers, a sports marketing professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. “It increases the opportunity for any sports that overlap with the NFL to showcase their

products.” What’s unclear is the extent to which college football, the National Hockey League, NASCAR and other entities whose seasons run through the fall would benefit should there be a significant stretch of NFL-free Sundays and Monday nights for the first time since the 1982 strike, when the season was cut from 16 to nine games. On Friday, the NFL’s owners and players agreed to extend negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement by a week. The NFL’s regular-season ratings generally rival or exceed those of World Series games and often quadruple NASCAR’s race afternoons. With the NFL an imposing giant among U.S. sports, there is no obvious No. 2 to pick up its disoriented fans. See NFL / D5

White Buffs rout Siuslaw 61-31 to reach state tourney By Beau Eastes The Bulletin

MADRAS — In 2003, JoElla Smith and Abby Scott, then Jefferson County elementary school students, made the trip to Corvallis to watch Madras High win the Class 3A girls state basketball championship. Eight years later, the two White Buffalo standouts are set to return to Oregon State University’s Gill Coliseum after blowing out Siuslaw 6131 on Saturday in the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs. With the win, Madras will play Banks at 6:30

p.m. on Wednesday in the quarterfinal round of the 4A state tournament. “I’m just so happy for the kids,” said third-year White Buffalo coach Rory Oster, who has turned a program that went 1-24 during the 2007-08 season into a state title contender just three years later. “This is such a great group of seniors and such a great final game on this floor.” The visiting Vikings from Florence never had a chance against Madras, which dominated the pace and tempo of the game from the opening tipoff.

The race, however, will be remembered for Danica Patrick’s history making run. Patrick placed fourth, the best finish for a woman in a national NASCAR race since Sara Christian was fifth at Pittsburgh in 1949. “We just had a good car, that’s all I can say. That’s what makes a difference in these things,” said Patrick. “I know I haven’t had the best results, especially in NASCAR, but we’re getting them now.” Just Allgaier finished second to give Turner Motorsports, a Nationwide Series team competing against Sprint Cup teams every weekend, a 1-2 finish. Keselowski wound up third.

French rider Jerome Capel of Saur Sojasun was 3 seconds behind in the overall standings.

Basketball • Magic’s Howard suspended: Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has been suspended for one game without pay for picking up his 16th technical foul of the season. He will serve the suspension Monday when the Magic are home against Portland. Howard leads the NBA in technicals this season.

Gymnastics • Americans win at American Cup: Jonathan Horton and Jordyn Wieber gave the United States a sweep at the American Cup in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday. Horton finished in the top three in five of six events en route to his third American Cup. The silver medalist at the Beijing Olympics moved from second to first place with a solid performance on the parallel bars, then held on with a mostly error-free routine on the high bar. Wieber topped the women’s field in three of four events, and claimed her second American Cup. Not bad considering she got in the field as an alternate when Britain’s Nicole Hibbert withdrew because of an injury.

Dog sledding • Iditarod begins in Alaska: The streets of downtown Anchorage were filled with barking dogs and screaming fans Saturday as the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race got under way with a rollicking sprint through Alaska’s biggest city. The

ceremonial start of the world’s longest sled dog race is always a festive affair in which one of the city’s main streets becomes crowded with dog teams and people seeking to greet their favorite mushers and bid them good luck in the 1,150-mile race to Nome. The serious mushing begins today at the restart in Willow, where there will be far fewer fans and less hoopla as the 16-dog teams leave the start line — and the clock begins ticking — in the quest to be the first to reach the coastal gold-rush town. Defending champion Lance Mackey is trying for his fifth consecutive Iditarod win.

Skiing • Norwegian wins 30K: Norway’s Therese Johaug won the 30-kilometer freestyle event on Saturday, shattering teammate Marit Bjoergen’s dream of a fifth gold medal, while Andreas Kofler set a new hill record as Austria won another team ski jumping gold at the nordic skiing world championships in Oslo, Norway. The 22-year-old Johaug darted clear at the halfway point, before crossing the line in 1 hour, 23 minutes, 45.1 seconds to leave Poland’s Justyna Kowalczyk and Bjoergen in a tussle for silver. Bjoergen could at least take comfort from finishing 50 seconds ahead of Kowalczyk, but 44 seconds behind her teammate. Austria reasserted its ski jumping dominance in Oslo by winning all four individual and team gold medals. Kofler jumped 141 meters to set a new hill record and give the Austrians a comfortable win over Norway and Slovenia.

Tennis • Bryans send U.S. to Davis Cup lead: The United States rode a doubles victory by twins Bob and Mike Bryan on Saturday to a 2-1 lead over Chile in the first round of the Davis Cup in Santiago. The top-ranked Bryans defeated Jorge Aguilar and Nicolas Massu 6-3, 6-3, 7-6 (4). The U.S. can reach the quarterfinals by winning one of today’s reverse singles. Andy Roddick can clinch it for the Americans when he opens against Paul Capdeville. The winner of the best-offive series faces Spain, which eliminated Belgium 3-0.

Boxing • Judah stops Mabuza to win title: Zab Judah knocked out Kaizer Mabuza in the seventh round Saturday night in Newark, N.J., to regain the IBF junior welterweight title that he first held more than a decade ago. Judah (41-6, 28 KOs) found himself in the middle of a backand-forth fight against his South African opponent before landing a devastating straight left hand. Mabuza fell halfway through the ropes in the corner, and referee Sam Viruet gave him a standing count. Viruet allowed the fight to continue, even though Mabuza still seemed shaky, and Judah quickly pounced on him. The end finally came 59 seconds into the seventh round. — From wire reports

Wildcats beat Ducks, secure Pac-10 title By John Marshall The Associated Press

TUCSON, Ariz. — With Aerosmith’s “Dream On” blaring through the loudspeakers, Arizona’s players stood and watched as the videoboard showed highlights of their memorable season. Once it was over, the jubilant Wildcats sprinted to the north end of the McKale Center and made a lap through the student section, high-fiving and squirming their way through the red mosh pit of the ’Zona Zoo in delight. For a once-proud program that had fallen on hard times, this truly was a dream. Derrick Williams managed to be productive despite early foul trouble and got plenty of help in what may have been his final home game, lifting No. 18 Arizona to a 90-82 win over Oregon and the outright Pac-10 title on Saturday. “I can’t imagine it being any better anyplace else,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. Arizona (25-6, 14-4) already had earned a share of the title for the first time in six years and the McKale Center was juiced in anticipation of nets coming down. The Wildcats put on quite a shooting show, hitting 11 threepointers and shooting 56 percent overall to close out their first undefeated home season (17-0) in 12 years. Kyle Fogg led Arizona with 20 points, Solomon Hill added 14 and Kevin Parrom added 11 in an impressive through-the-line contribution that the Wildcats didn’t have a year ago. Williams was a nonfactor in the first half and still finished with

Oregon’s Joevan Cartron shoots over Arizona’s Jessy Perry, right, in the first half of Saturday’s game in Tucson, Ariz. 14 points, closing out the regularseason finale with a soaring dunk in the closing minutes to set off a celebration that was still going 30 minutes after the final buzzer. “It’s amazing,” said Williams, who was five for seven from the

field and had five rebounds in 22 minutes. “This is the reason why I came here.” Oregon (14-16, 7-11) put up a fight despite having little to play for besides a better seed in next week’s Pac-10 tournament.

The Ducks withstood initial flurries by Arizona in each half, trimming a 17-point lead early in the second to six with 5½ minutes left behind Joevan Catron (28 points). The Ducks stayed close the rest of the way, but never made it back, ending the regular season with a four-game losing streak. “We had the same fight we had earlier in the season,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “I want them to do be excited about that. They did all those things you look for for competitiveness.” The Wildcats’ 12th Pac-10 title completes an impressive turnaround. Once one of the nation’s best programs, Arizona had fallen a few rungs the past few years, starting with Lute Olson’s leave of absence and retirement in consecutive seasons. Miller gave the Wildcats stability after arriving from a successful stint at Xavier and, after a foundation-setting 2009-10 season, re-established Arizona’s standing among the elite. He did it behind Williams, a deep and talented supporting cast and a confidence that absorbed a slight dent with a late-season slide a year ago. The Pac-10’s 2010 freshman of the year, Williams developed into one of the nation’s best players during his sophomore season, a 6-foot-8 bundle of power and grace who can shoot inside or out, right-handed or left. Projected as an NBA lottery pick, he faces a decision whether to stick around in the desert or give the pros a try. Just not yet. There’s still some basketball left, starting with the Pac-10 tournament, where the Wildcats will

be the No. 1 seed, and a likely return to the NCAA tournament after their 25-year run ended last season. “I just want to win, that’s all I can say about that,” Williams said. “That’s my focus for right now.” If this was Williams’ final home game, it’ll be remembered for the help he got. With a piece of black tape replacing the bulky bandage on his injured right pinky, Williams took just two shots in the first half and scored two points while battling foul trouble. The rest of the Wildcats made up for it, with 10 players scoring in the first half, nine getting at least one assist and three-pointers flying in from seemingly everywhere. Fogg got it started with three straight threes during an opening 13-4 run and Parrom jumped off the bench to drain two of his own. Arizona ended up hitting seven in the first half and shot 16 of 27 overall to build a 41-32 lead. Catron had his inside-outside game going while scoring 12 points in the first half, and the Ducks rallied after an early run put Arizona up 53-36 in the second. Oregon closed to 70-64 when Catron hit a three-pointer, but couldn’t get any closer as Williams, who heard chants of “One more year!” throughout the game, punctuated the victory with a tomahawk dunk along the baseline. “Arizona is the best team in the league,” Altman said. “Derrick Williams is an unbelievable player. Sean Miller had done a wonderful job in two years to get them where they are. I think they have a chance to make a run.”

OSU benches five players, loses to Arizona State PA C - 1 0 R O U N D U P

The Associated Press TEMPE, Ariz. — Craig Robinson said that growing up in his Chicago household, rules were rules and consequences were consequences. Nearly half of his team learned that the hard way on Saturday. Five Oregon State players were benched for violating team rules and Arizona State went on to roll past the Beavers 80-66 in the final Pac-10 regular season game for both teams. Seniors Ty Abbott and Rihards Kuksiks scored 22 and 18 points, respectively, as the Sun Devils (12-18, 4-14), the last-place team in the Pac-10, finished with three consecutive home victories. “It was important ... to have a special day for our seniors because these guys have meant a lot to our program,” Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said. “They have had a good measure of success and we have had a tough season, but yet they have galvanized us to win the last three games at home.” Robinson would not say what the five players did, but The Oregonian reported that they missed curfew at the on-campus hotel in Tucson following the team’s loss to Arizona on Thursday night. Only six players played for the Beavers (10-19, 5-13), led by Roberto Nelson, whose 34 points were more than double his previous career best. Robinson, brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, said that his parents were always consistent and unbending when enforcing the rules. “That’s how I ended up staying out of trouble,” he said. Those who did not play includ-

Arizona State forward Kyle Cain, right, and Oregon State’s Joe Burton go for a loose ball during the first half of Saturday’s game in Tempe, Ariz. ed three starters — Jared Cunningham, Ahmad Starks and Devon Collier — along with leading reserves Calvin Haynes and Lathen Wallace. Robinson said the punishment was for one game only and all would be able to participate in the Pac-10 tournament next week. “Nothing was done serious enough to go any further past today,” Robinson said. The coach was extremely pleased with how the affected players responded, both the ones sitting on the bench and the ones forced to play extensive minutes. Nelson, Omari Johnson and Kevin McShane played the entire game. Joe Burton sat for one minute and Angus Brandt five. Walk-on Daniel Jones was the only reserve.

“You coach kids, it’s inevitable something happens,” Robinson said. “Hey, I’m glad that we’re not talking about police reports and stuff like that but they’re still learning. I’m 48 and I’m still learning. I’m grateful that they took their medicine like big boys.” The exhausted Oregon State players found it impossible as the game wore on to cover the Sun Devils on the perimeter. As a result, Arizona State made 17 threepointers — one shy of the school record — in a school-record 40 attempts. The Sun Devils were 16 of 36 on threes in their 73-53 victory over Oregon on Thursday night. “They played a zone and we knew how to attack it,” Abbott said. “We knew the shots would open up for us. Most importantly we were ready to shoot and we wanted the guys not to waste time putting the ball up.” Arizona State’s third senior, Jamelle McMillan, had 10 points, eight assists and five steals. Corey Hawkins added 13 points for the Sun Devils. Johnson had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Beavers, who were 1-7 down the stretch in their conference season. Oregon State was 0-9 on the road in conference games. The Beavers stayed close early, but Arizona State took control with a 17-4 run to go up 35-23 on Hawkins’ three-pointer with 3:46 left in the half. Arizona State led 41-28 at the break and Oregon State got no closer than 11 in the second half. In other Pac-10 games on Saturday:

Beavers score 30 runs in twinbill From wire reports CORVALLIS — Jake Rodriguez posted two three-hit efforts and Ben Wetzler and Sam Gaviglio combined for two solid outings as the Oregon State baseball team swept a doubleheader over Hartford Saturday at Goss Stadium. The Beavers (7-3) won game one 14-1 in seven innings, then defeated the Hawks 16-1 in game two. The games marked the first home games this season for Oregon State after Friday night’s game against Hartford (0-2) was postponed. The two-game total of 30 runs was the most in consecutive games for the Beavers since they posted 35 runs — 23 against Northern Illinois and 12 against Missouri — in 2009. Rodriguez went three for five in game two to end the day six for eight with two doubles and a run batted in. Parker Berberet went three for six in game two and ended the day five for 10 with six RBIs. Overall, OSU tallied 27 hits against five Hartford pitchers in the two games. Oregon State and Hartford continue the series today with a doubleheader that is scheduled to begin at 1:05 p.m. Game two of the day will start 30 minutes after the completion of game one.

That’s where Jeff Yamaguchi delivered the game-winning single for LBSU in the bottom of the 12th, sending the Dirtbags (3-6) to an improbable walk-off victory. Freshman Brando Tessar (0-1) — UO’s sixth hurler of the night — took the loss.

Stars stop Sharks’ win streak with 3-2 victory

UNC tops Duke, takes ACC title The Associated Press CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Roy Williams grabbed the microphone and looked across the throng of blue-clad fans still milling around the Smith Center after North Carolina’s latest conference championship. “It’s been a wonderful year,” Williams said, “so far.” At this point, no one can blame the Hall of Fame coach for thinking big. Not after his 13th-ranked Tar Heels finished off No. 4 Duke 81-67 on Saturday night to win the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title and complete an unprecedented climb back atop the league. Harrison Barnes scored 18 points for the Tar Heels (24-6, 14-2), who earned the top seed in next week’s league tournament in Greensboro. Kendall Marshall added 15 points and 11 assists as North Carolina avenged last month’s loss at Duke in which the Tar Heels blew a 16-point lead in the first half. Once again, the Tar Heels built a big lead in the first half, this time 14 points. But Barnes and the Tar Heels protected that margin and stayed in control the entire night. It certainly eased more of the lingering pain from last year’s 17-loss season, Williams’ worst as a head coach. By beating the Blue Devils (27-4, 13-3), North Carolina became the first team in league history to win the ACC regular-season title outright a year after finishing below .500 in league play. “The last 10 months haven’t been very easy a lot of times, but that crowd in that locker room has been fantastic,” Williams said. When it was over, fans and students rushed the court to celebrate a surprisingly easy victory against the reigning national champions. In fact, Williams addressed the crowd for them to clear off and allow his players to celebrate with his own tradition — clipping down the nets after clinching a league title at home. Also on Saturday: No. 2 Kansas . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 70 No. 22 Missouri . . . . . . . . . . . . 66 COLUMBIA, Mo. — Marcus Morris and Thomas Robinson had double-doubles and Kansas (29-2, 14-2) wrapped up its seventh straight Big 12 championship.

Madras’ Rosey Suppah (21) shoots over her shoulder to score during the first quarter against Siuslaw in a Class 4A state playoff game on Saturday night at Madras High School.

Madras Continued from D1 The White Buffaloes (18-7 overall) grabbed a 9-2 lead less than three minutes into the first quarter and rolled from there. Smith scored a game-high 22 points and Scott added 19 in a contest the home team led by as many as 34 points. Defensively, Madras’ half-court trap gave the Vikings (11-11) fits all night. Siuslaw made just eight field goals in the game and shot 15.1 percent from the field. “The blueprint was to exert pressure and run them off the floor,” said Scott, who recorded eight rebounds and six assists to go with her 19 points. “We wanted to feed off that energy.” Smith was the Buffs’ offensive

Cowgirls Continued from D1 Crook County trailed 9-8 after one quarter, but the Cowgirls took the lead with a solid defensive effort in the second quarter. They outscored Central 10-5 in the period and held an 18-14 lead going into halftime. Both teams opened up offensively in the second half, combining for 57 points after halftime, but the Cowgirls were able to hold off the Panthers down the

catalyst early, scoring Madras’ first seven points of the game. By halftime she had 12 points, and the White Buffaloes owned a 2914 lead. “She’s one of the best athletes this school has ever seen,” Oster said about Smith, a varsity contributor for Madras since her freshman year. “Such a fitting night for her.” While Smith commanded the White Buffaloes’ offense, Scott spearheaded the Madras defensive effort as the point person in the half-court trap. The 6-foot junior guard ended the night with four steals and three blocks en route to helping the White Buffaloes force 24 turnovers. “You don’t often see a player with her length be able to handle the ball like her,” Siuslaw coach Aaron McNeill said about Scott.

“She’s an outstanding player.” Smith and Scott were hardly the only players to contribute Saturday night, though. Rosey Suppah added four points, nine rebounds and three steals; Rachel Simmons contributed two points and nine rebounds; and Cheyenne Wahnetah posted seven points, two assists and two blocked shots. “Girls basketball is so special to this community,” Oster said. “The best thing is that these girls were fourth- and fifth-graders when that last team won state. They remember watching those games. “And now,” Oster said, “they’ve got the same opportunity.” Beau Eastes can be reached at 541-383-0305 or at beastes@ bendbulletin.com.

stretch. Crook County made 20 of its 32 free throws, compared with Central’s 11-of-22 effort at the free-throw line. “It was just a back-and-forth game most of the way,” Johnson said. “The difference at the end of the game, in a high-pressure situation, the girls were able to keep their composure.” Crook County reached the state tournament after it ended its regular season with a rough stretch against schools from larger classifications. The Cowgirls went

2-5 in their final seven games of the regular season, losing close games to Intermountain Conference foes Redmond, Bend, Mountain View and Summit (twice). But Crook County has won twice since, first in a Class 4A play-in victory over Douglas (62-17) before defeating Central. Next up for the Cowgirls is Henley, a 55-33 winner over Ontario on Saturday. Henley (20-5 overall) was the top team out of the Skyline Conference. One of Henley’s five losses came to Madras in December, 52-41.

PREP NOTEBOOK

Crook County hires former assistant as new football coach Bulletin staff report PRINEVILLE — A former Crook County High assistant coach has been named the new head coach of the school’s varsity football team. Ryan Cochran, a sixth-grade teacher at Crook County Middle School, replaces Woody Bennett, who stepped down as varsity coach in January after leading the Cowboys for the past three seasons. Bennett’s teams went 12-18 during his tenure, including 7-3 in 2010. Scott Polen, athletic director at Crook County High, announced Cochran’s hiring last week. Cochran, who previously coached on the high school varsity staff, has spent the past three seasons coaching at Crook County Middle School. He played offensive line for Eastern Oregon University in La Grande in the late 1990s. Former Cowboy guides Clackamas CC to national title SPOKANE, Wash. — Josh Rhoden, a 1998 graduate of Crook County High who currently is the head wrestling coach at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, guided his program to the 2011 National Junior College Athletic Association wrestling national championship. Rhoden’s Cougars scored 109 points to 98.5 for runner-up North Idaho College in the twoday NJCAA national championship tournament, which concluded Feb. 26 at the Spokane Convention Center. Six CCC wrestlers posted top-five finishes, including heavyweight Tyrell Fortune, who won his bracket at 285 pounds. Additionally, Rho-

den, 30, who is in his fifth year at CCC, was named the NJCAA national coach of the year. Outlaws hire new track and field coach SISTERS — Nik Goertzen, who guided the Sisters High girls soccer team to the Class 4A/3A/ 2A/1A state finals last fall, has been hired to coach the Outlaws’ boys and girls track teams this spring. Goertzen, who was an assistant coach for the track program last season, replaces longtime Sisters head track coach Bob Johnson. Mountain View volleyball coach returns to college ranks FAIRBANKS, Alaska — Mallory Larranaga, head volleyball coach at Mountain View High since 2008, is leaving the Bend school to take an assistant coaching position at her college alma mater, the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Larranaga, the first volleyball player ever inducted into the UAF Nanook Hall of Fame, guided Mountain View to the state playoffs in each of her three years as the Cougars’ head coach. Bend grad helps Redlands to national tournament REDLANDS, Calif. — Kent Ervin, a 2007 graduate of Bend High who currently is a senior at the University of Redlands, helped the Bulldog men’s basketball team advance to the NCAA Division III national tournament this season for the first time since 1985. Ervin, who averaged 5.0 points and 2.9 assists per game for Redlands this year as a reserve guard, was part of

a Bulldog team that finished 1612 overall and won the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament. With a league record of 11-3, Redlands won a share of the SCIAC regular-season title. The Bulldogs’ season came to an end Thursday with a 62-38 defeat to Chapman University in the first round of the D-III national tournament.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Jason Williams scored his first goal of the season on a fluky deflection to break a third-period tie and help the Dallas Stars snap the San Jose Sharks’ eightgame winning streak with a 3-2 victory Saturday night. Williams signed as a free agent with Dallas last month after sitting out the first four months of the season. His goal with 7:12 remaining was by far his biggest contribution in 10 games with the Stars. The loss was San Jose’s first at home since Jan. 13 and only fourth overall in the past 21 games.

NBA ROUNDUP

GOLF ROUNDUP

Aldridge scores 26, Blazers blast Bobcats

Sabbatini leads by five at Honda Classic

The Associated Press PORTLAND — LaMarcus Aldridge thought the whole thing was strange. There was his Portland teammate of nearly five years, Joel Przybilla, wearing a Charlotte jersey and playing for the other team. “It just felt weird, you know?” Aldridge said after scoring 26 points in the Trail Blazers’ 93-69 victory over the Bobcats on Saturday night. Przybilla agreed. “I wish we could have gotten the win, but it was a different experience, man,” he said. “Something I’ll remember the rest of my life.” The Blazers sent Przybilla and fellow center Sean Marks, forward Dante Cunningham and a pair of conditional first-round draft picks to Charlotte on Feb. 24 in exchange for Gerald Wallace, who was the last original member of the 7-year-old Bobcats. The deal was struck just seven minutes before the trade deadline. Wallace, an All-Star last season, had seven points off the bench against his former team. Przybilla was a fan favorite in Portland, where he had played since the 2004-05 season. He came into the game with 2:21 left in the first quarter to a standing ovation from the Rose Garden crowd. He fouled out with about a minute left in the game and was given another hearty ovation. At one point, the crowd chanted his name. Przybilla finished with five points. “It was great, I don’t know what to say,” Przybilla said. “I’ve had a couple receptions when I came back from injury, and this one. I’ll remember this until the day I die.” The 7-foot-1 Przybilla — who was attractive to the Bobcats because of an expiring contract — was reluctant about leaving Portland, but was welcomed by owner Michael Jordan. Gerald Henderson had 16 points for the Bobcats, who have lost four straight, all on the road. Charlotte was without top scorer Stephen Jackson because of a sore left hamstring. “Back-to-back games and when

The Associated Press

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — After making consecutive birdies, Honda Classic leader Rory Sabbatini stood in the rough along the sixth fairway, complaining to a PGA Tour official about a delay in play and wondering what had become of the group just ahead of him. The strange interruption could have halted Sabbatini is momentum. Instead, after a long wait he hit an iron 200 yards to 10 feet of the pin, one of his better shots among the 66 Saturday that gave him a cushy lead. Sabbatini will enter the final round at 9-under 201, five shots ahead of Jerry Kelly and 2009 winner Y.E. Yang. The wait at No. 6 occurred when Kelly, playing two groups ahead of Sabbatini, lodged a shot in a palm tree. A newspaper photographer’s zoom lens was used to identify the ball as Kelly’s, allowing him to avoid being penalized for a lost ball. The inspection took time, so the twosome behind Kelly played

Continued from D1 “If football were to go away, I don’t think interest pours into another sport,” said Robert Boland, a professor of sports business who specializes in antitrust law and collective bargaining at New York University. “I think it diffuses rather than splashes. I think it goes in a million places rather than one. That’s why it will be hard for somebody to capitalize on it.” The boost to NFL competitors will be “mixed,” said Rick Horrow, a visiting expert on sports law at Harvard Law School. And “it will be weighed against the malaise that may set in for the general fan, who may become tired in general” of the labor battles between millionaire players and billionaire owners, he said. Still, experts say, leagues are salivating at the chance to showcase their events outside the enormous shadow of the NFL. Some say baseball’s sagging postseason ratings would likely see the greatest bump, especially if the National Basketball Association’s labor issues also result in a work stoppage. The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement expires this summer. Ratings for two of the past three World Series (the GiantsRangers in 2010 and PhilliesRays in 2008) reached historic lows, about 50 percent below what was typical throughout the 1990s. And because playoff schedules are not yet set, Major League Baseball could target vacant Sunday afternoons for key games. Others say college football would benefit most, as fans desperate for a fix shift their attention to Saturdays, or opportunistic schools or conferences move their games to Sunday af-

through. Meanwhile, Sabbatini and playing partner Kyle Stanley waited and wondered how they had caught up with Kelly. “It was a little bit of dazed and confused,” Sabbatini said. “We’re like, ‘OK, where did he come from?’ And we’re trying to figure out what’s going on.” A South African who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, Sabbatini’s known for his feisty manner and candor on any topic — even Tiger Woods. But nothing has riled him up this week, and he tried to look at the delay as something positive. “Actually, I think maybe that might have helped me slow down a little out there,” he said. “It allowed me to back off a little bit and kind of refocus again. So I think that was a good thing.” Yang birdied the last two holes for a 3-under 67 and moved into a tie for second with Kelly, who shot a roller-coaster 68. Gary Woodland also had a 68 and was fourth, six shots behind. Secondround leader Stanley had a 74 to drop seven strokes back. Sabbatini, who changed put-

ters this week, made birdie putts of 2, 40, 12, 18 and 18 feet. “I’ve been putting well all year; I just didn’t feel like I was making anything,” he said. “Sometimes just changing the look of things, changing the feel of things, can kind of just spur something.” With his new mallet-style putter, Sabbatini had the lowest round for the second day in a row after tying the tournament course record with a 64 Friday. Sabbatini has won five PGA Tour titles, most recently at the 2009 Byron Nelson Championship. But he’s perhaps best known for once calling Woods “more beatable than ever,” long before the sex scandal that sent Woods’ career off track. Lee Westwood, who fell to No. 2 in the rankings this week behind Martin Kaymer, was tied for 30th at 4 over after a 75. Westwood must finish alone in third place or better to regain the top ranking next week. First-round leader Spencer Levin was tied for 16th at 2 over after a 73.

ternoons. During the 1982 strike, the networks aired some Division III contests. “The importance now shifts to college football,” said Wayne McDonnell, a former Madison Square Garden executive and sports management professor at New York University. “Nothing is going to replace the NFL, but college football is pretty close . . . I wouldn’t be a bit surprised, if the NFL can’t get its act together, for college football to try to take advantage in a lot of ways.” “If the NFL does not play their games, that will create a little void and I suspect the interest in college football will increase,” said Nick Carparelli, the Big East’s senior associate commissioner. “But I do not expect, if there is an NFL work stoppage, that colleges will contemplate moving their games to Sundays. Saturday in the fall is a college football institution. . . a great tradition.” There also would be major competitive and logistical issues to consider, according to Randy Eaton, the University of Maryland’s senior associate athletic director and chief financial officer. “You start having to look at the competitive advantages and disadvantages of going Sunday-Saturday, as opposed to SaturdaySaturday with your team,” Eaton said. “There would be some major conundrums that would be had. Last year when we moved the Navy game from Saturday to Monday, Navy just had a nightmare because so many of their fans travel from out of town.” NASCAR already occupies a Sunday afternoon television slot, and it historically has been blistered in head-to-head competition with the NFL’s regular season. An increase in viewership would be expected; the only question is whether it would be a

meaningful boost. NASCAR has seen its ratings shrink in recent years, and no one doubts its face-offs with the NFL have contributed. In 2004, it created a 10-race playoff and finally was rewarded with a nailbiting finish last year when three drivers were in contention on the last weekend. Yet that Nov. 21 finale earned just a 3.3 rating (5.6 million average viewers) as it went up against Week 11 of the NFL season — which included clashes between New England and Indianapolis, Green Bay and Minnesota, and the Jets and Houston. Earlier this year, NASCAR officials said they would move start times from 1 p.m. to 2 or 3 to avoid competing directly with NFL games. “NASCAR has the greatest opportunity for gain,” Powers said. “They lose to the NFL. If the NFL is not there, they control those slots.” The NHL also could make strides as it seeks to reclaim its stature as one of the nation’s four major sports, while niche sports such as figure skating and downhill skiing might also see occasional prime weekend airtime. The Sunday NFL slot is considered so sacred that some speculate that no matter what substitute is provided — whether it’s college football or a figure skating exhibition — some fans will seek out non-sport substitutes or turn off the television rather than tolerate what they would consider second-hand offerings. “I don’t know that anybody is simply going to double-down on baseball or double-down on NASCAR,” Boland said. “I think some might say ‘I’m just going to hold on to my money.’. . .The NFL is the singular cultural marker of America. All of the others compete on a different scale for percentages and pockets.”

ALPINE SKIING: WORLD CUP

Marco Trovati / The Associated Press

Lindsey Vonn speeds down the course on her way to a second-place finish during a women’s World Cup downhill race in Tarvisio, Italy, Saturday.

Vonn clinches fourth straight downhill title By Andrew Dampf The Associated Press

TARVISIO, Italy — Here’s a measure of Lindsey Vonn’s strength in the downhill: She no longer bothers to celebrate the season-long championship. She won the downhill crown for the fourth consecutive year Saturday by finishing second to Sweden’s Anja Paerson. A day earlier, Vonn clinched her second straight super-combined title. She now has 11 World Cup championships for her career, with another possibly on the way in today’s super-G. This latest title hardly prompted a ski-dancing display in the snow as was the case Saturday. Instead, Vonn appeared upset when she crossed the line, a distant 0.73 seconds behind. Still, she wasn’t about to take this milestone for granted. “You can never expect any titles,” she said. “Nothing is given to you and you have to fight for every point and every place, and this year I wasn’t able to win as many times as last year, so it definitely wasn’t easy. Maria gave me a run for my money and I had to keep fighting hard the whole season.” Elisabeth Goergl, who won gold in the superG and downhill at last month’s world championships, finished 1.17 back in third. Tina Maze, Friday’s super-combined winner, was fourth on

Janka wins giant slalom 10 days after heart surgery KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia — Olympic champion Carlo Janka of Switzerland won a men’s World Cup giant slalom race on Saturday, 10 days after having surgery to correct an irregular heartbeat. French teenager Alexis Penturault had a blistering second run to jump from 16th to second, trailing Janka by 0.02 seconds, while world GS champion Ted Ligety of the United states was 0.12 back in third. a sunny, cool day and on a shortened course because of curtailed training on the upper section. Vonn’s runner-up finish gave her an insurmountable 143-point lead in the downhill standings over German rival Maria Riesch, who finished sixth but remains the overall leader. Vonn trails Riesch by just 136 points in the overall standings with seven races remaining. But even if Vonn’s streak of three consecutive overall titles ends, the American can console herself with two — and perhaps three — discipline titles. “If I don’t win, it just gives me more motivation to come back and really step it up next year,” Vonn said.

Recruiting Continued from D1 With Nike and Under Armour sponsoring teams and ESPNU providing coverage, seven-on-seven football, which is played with no helmets, pads or linemen, has grown quickly in the past three years. Michel plays for the South Florida Express, which attracted more than 190 players and about 40 reporters for its first day of tryouts in February. Seven-on-seven, once a niche offseason sport run by high schools to keep players in shape, concerns coaches who fear its potential to develop a recruiting culture similar to basketball’s. Many top basketball players are controlled by unscrupulous third parties and street agents. “Crossroads is probably an appropriate word,” said Urban Meyer, the former University of Florida coach. “College football is doing great, and it’s the second-mostpopular sport in the country, but there’s some things we have to get our arms around.” The main concern, shared by Meyer, Texas coach Mack Brown, Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly and many prominent high school coaches, is the proliferation of third parties and street agents. Those third parties are showing up in the form of nonscholastic seven-onseven teams and offseason trainers as football drifts from its high school roots. “The seven-on-seven stuff concerns me,” Kelly said. “It does have an appearance of separating from the high school coach. In football, the head football coach is still relevant. I don’t know if that’s the case in basketball.” The situation has also caught the NCAA’s attention. “I think the outside third parties for both sports are a huge concern,” said Rachel Newman Baker, the NCAA director for agent, gambling and amateurism activities. “They really are the problem, from multiple levels. They have studentathletes’ and their families’ ears.” Those fears were realized last week when the University of Oregon admitted to paying $25,000 to Will Lyles, who runs a Houstonbased scouting service. He essentially directed the recruitment of the freshman tailback Lache Seastrunk. The Ducks also paid $3,745 to Baron Flenory, who runs Badger Sports Elite seven-on-seven camps. The payments, first reported by Yahoo, were cleared by Oregon’s compliance department.

Although technically within NCAA rules, the payments were seen as a sign that football’s recruiting model is becoming more like basketball’s, in which college coaches are beholden to third parties. “We’re starting to see the surgical removal of high school football coaches from recruiting,” said Chris Merritt, the coach at Columbus High School in Miami. “The sport of football is slowly turning into basketball, from the street agents to AAU-type football.” That presents challenges for some college coaches. Lyles reportedly accompanied Seastrunk on some visits to colleges, including Texas. Brown, the longtime Texas coach, declined to comment on Lyles but said that he had refused to deal with street agents. “I’m sure that it’s hurt us on some players,” Brown said. “But I also feel like until everything gets legitimized, I don’t want a player on our team who I don’t know who the parents are. I don’t know who he’s listening to. If you get an agent involved in your program, then he’s involved. That scares me. I worry some about the street agents.” Brown said he had seen cases in which a street agent who was involved with a high schooler had ties to professional agents or attempted to become the player’s agent. “I’ve seen it on three kids each of the last two years,” Brown said. “So far, that’s not a big enough impact on us to change our lives.” Before leaving Florida in December, Meyer said, he saw a change. “In the last year and a half, it’s accelerated to the point where at least every day or every other day we were having discussions about third parties and how to handle situations that weren’t there several years ago,” he said. Seeing high school players tied to professional agents is common in basketball, as agents have long sponsored or been involved with summer teams. Newman Baker of the NCAA said the flurry of agentrelated scandals last summer at North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama raised an alarm. “That is not new news to me,” she said of third parties with ties to NFL agents in high school football. “And obviously that’s a concern for us, especially given what we’ve been through in the last year in that area as well.” Brett Goetz coaches the Express, one of the country’s elite teams. He works in financial services and has run the Express as a hobby for four years. Goetz is proud of have built it into a model program in terms

of publicity, talent and on-field success. He welcomed the NCAA to the February tryout; the organization has been sending representatives around the country to better understand the seven-on-seven phenomenon. Goetz said he operated his program with integrity and transparency, but that he was not naive to perceptions of the sport. “There’s a big black cloud hanging over this whole thing that makes me uncomfortable,” he said. “It seems like it’s evolving too fast.” A scene on the second day of the tryout offered a window into seven-on-seven’s power. One of Goetz’s assistants, Jon Drummond, put Miramar High cornerback Tracy Howard on the phone with assistant coaches at Miami and Florida. Howard is a junior, so college coaches cannot call him. But it is legal for Drummond to connect coaches with Howard, the country’s top cornerback prospect. Asked if college coaches need to court their seven-on-seven counterparts the way they talk to high school coaches, Drummond said, “They better.” “I think it’s just as important as high school football,” Drummond said of seven-on-seven. “It makes recruiting easier. You don’t have to search for coaches; they search for you.” High school coaches scoff at that notion because they do not consider seven-on-seven real football. Yet South Florida coaches are concerned that players will transfer to schools through coaches they meet playing seven-on-seven. Jeff Bertani, the coach at North Miami Beach, said it contributed to the region’s Wild West recruiting reputation. “The street agents are now going by the terms of seven-on-seven coaches,” he said, referring to no one in particular. “Before, these guys were advisers and mentors. Now they can say, ‘I’m coaching the team.’” For top recruits like Michel and Howard, they see only the benefits of playing top competition and traveling. They loved playing for Goetz. “When you do good in sevenon-seven, you get more recruiting hype,” Michel said. “That’s what got my name out there.” But for college football recruiting to avoid ending up like basketball’s, Meyer said, no magic solution or NCAA legislation exists. “There’s a lot of people wondering how we can control this,” he said. “It’s not an easy question to answer.”

JOHN COSTA UNION BATTLES

Flaherty fails to live up to his campaign C

omparing the election campaign of Deschutes District Attorney Patrick Flaherty with his actions in the first two months of office does not do justice to the word hypocrisy. It simply takes the breath away. Recall the campaign that Flaherty and his supporters ran against then-District Attorney Mike Dugan. According to them, Dugan was a zealous over charger of crime, had politicized and demoralized the office, directed his wrath at personal opponents and had the effrontery to seek new public spending. The last one was one of my favorite attack ads, since it was presented by a former law enforcement official who himself campaigned for more spending. Another quasi-professorial piece of pontification informed that it was accepted wisdom in management circles that people who were in office too long essentially outlived their usefulness. This, of course, was meant for the highbrows among the anti-Dugan crowd, who considered his tenure began while Lincoln was a law clerk. If all this was true and good reason for throwing Dugan out, do the same standards apply to Flaherty? The Bulletin, which endorsed Dugan, criticized him for a few cases in which it thought that he misused his charging authority to gain pleas and convictions. He disagreed, but it is a fair criticism of his tenure. But how does that square against Flaherty’s apparent interest in criminalizing the release of public information? Over the last two weeks he has dragged government officials, including County Attorney Mark Pilliod, before a grand jury after the county gave The Bulletin résumé-like information on Flaherty’s new hires. Pilliod told The Bulletin he may have to hire a defense attorney. Flaherty also subpoenaed a Bulletin reporter who merely requested the public documents. Does that meet the Dugan zealotry test? How about hiring prominent campaign supporters? Is that politicizing the office? Workers get upset in offices all the time, and it wouldn’t be a shocker if Dugan wasn’t universally adored by his staff. But what does it say of morale in the DA’s office now that the Dugan holdovers who weren’t fired by Flaherty created a union to protect themselves? And with all due respect to the new district attorney, it is a little surprising that he is now in front of the county commission asking for more money so that his offices can be expanded and improved. It may well be needed and long overdue, but asking the county government for more money during a horrific economic time and after dragooning some of its workers doesn’t say much for good sense and timing. There is a good lesson in all this: Make sure you are focusing on the right issues when voting. Dugan’s wife, former state Rep. Judy Stiegler, was a supporter of the tax-raising Measures 66 and 67 when they were approved by state voters in January 2010. The measures, however, lost in every precinct in her district, and many citizens believed she had ducked talking about them to preserve her own political viability. Instead, the critics said, her husband Mike Dugan, thinking himself invincible after nearly three decades in office, took the lead in selling the idea here. Right or wrong, that perception rippled through the community, sparking enormous anger at both Stiegler and Dugan. Unfortunately for Dugan, he faced the voters in a primary four months later, and they ended his career as DA. Stiegler then lost in November largely on that issue, but at least that seemed like the right place for voters to register their anger. The tragedy was that it was likely antitax fury that cost Dugan his job. Perhaps he deserved that, but it would have been a very different election campaign, and perhaps a different outcome, if criminal prosecution had been the focus. Dugan brought this on himself, and he paid a price. But early in the Flaherty tenure, I can’t help feeling that we voters paid a price, too. Not that he’s likely to listen, but my advice to the new DA is to practice what he preached. John Costa is editor-in-chief of The Bulletin.

It’s not the pay that’s the problem By David Leonhardt New York Times News Service

hen Ed Rendell became the mayor of Philadelphia in 1992, he started a fight with the city’s labor unions that will sound familiar to anyone who has been following the recent news from Wisconsin. In his inaugural address, Rendell, a Democrat, announced, “Philadelphia stands on the brink of total disaster.” He told the city’s unions that they needed to accept less generA N A L Y S I S ous health benefits, fewer holidays and a pay freeze. The unions promised to strike. Rendell pointed out, frequently and publicly, that the city offered better benefits than private companies did. The public sided with the mayor, and on most issues, the unions eventually caved. If you review the recent history of battles between unions and state or local governments, you’ll find similar stories. In New York, Rudolph Giuliani won big concessions. In Chicago, Richard Daley did, too. In Wisconsin — setting aside Gov. Scott Walker’s attempt to end collective bargaining — unions have already agreed to a significant cut in take-home pay. It has become conventional wisdom to say that public sector unions are inherently problematic because they can use their political influence to win lavish pay from politicians. But that’s not quite right. The real problem with most union contracts for public workers is not the money — it’s almost everything else. See Unions / F5

Charter students see less funding

T

ake a look at the picture below. Those are students at Crook County’s Powell Butte Community Charter School attending a Forest Service program on snowshoeing.

Those students may look pretty much the same as any other students at a public school. But in terms of funding, they are eight-tenths students. They are worth 80 percent of other public school students. That’s all the state requires. Charter schools sponsored by a district serving K-8 students must get funding at least equal to 80 percent of the money a school district gets from the State School Fund per student for what’s called ADMw, which is basically attendance. For students in grades through 12th, the schools get at least 95 percent of ADMw. House Bill 3397 would increase the funding to 95 percent of ADMw, no matter what the grade level, and 95 percent of the money from federal and state grants. Charter schools are public schools. They can’t be private or religious schools converting to public schools. The schools get public funds under their charter to meet state educational standards and offer a different educational experience. They do not have to meet some statutes and rules that other public schools do. For instance, only half of the teachers and administrative staff at a charter must hold a valid teaching license. Enrollment at a charter school is voluntary. Why are charter students worth less? Teachers who do not have state licenses can be paid less. And the sponsoring district provides services to charters. But do charter schools get the full 100 percent funding in the end? That answer is not clear. Districts are not required to spend the other 20 percent on the charter. They also aren’t required to delineate where that money goes, according to the state’s Department of Education. Powell Butte was a district school. When the district made the difficult decision to close the school, communi-

ty members in Powell Butte mobilized to keep it open as a charter this school year. Powell Butte is now funded at the 80 percent level, or $4,483.20 per student for its ADMw of 141, according to Principal D.C. Lundy. It also got a start-up grant from the state for $500,000. The school serves K-6 students. Next year it will expand to seventh grade, as well. All the teachers at the school hold valid teaching licenses. In general, the teachers make less money and don’t have as good a benefit package as other teachers in the district, Lundy said. He described running a charter as like running a mini-district. The school develops its own curriculum. Its school lunch program is parents making a few lunches every day for children who might not have one or just forgot. The charter has its own bus that it uses for field trips and for taking children home in the afternoon. Lundy has been a teacher and/or principal at the school for 30 years. He appreciates all the school district has done for him and the school. He emphasized that the district has been supportive and helpful, but he said the school does not get the 20 percent of its funding back in services. Ivan Hernandez, the superintendent of the Crook County School District, was out sick last week and not available to comment. There’s no question that enrolling in a charter school is voluntary and that giving charter schools more money would hurt other public schools. And it would be foolish to extrapolate based only on the situation at Powell Butte. But if districts are not funding charter school students with that other 20 percent, parents and students deserve to know why. If the reasons aren’t good enough, charter school students deserve passage of HB 3397.

A woman’s role in today’s economy

I

n honor of Women’s History Month, President Barack Obama ordered up the first report on the status of American women since the one Eleanor Roosevelt prepared for John F. Kennedy. It’s chock full of interesting bits of information. For instance, did you know that the median marriage age for collegeeducated women is 30? I should have figured that out because I can barely think of a single college-educated woman under the age of 30 who is married. But somehow it still came as a surprise. I got married when I was 25, and I felt as if that was extremely late in the game. Of course, that was in the Mesozoic era, and we had no end of trouble keeping the stegosaurus away from the wedding cake. Additional reports from “Women in America: Indicators of Social and Economic Well-Being” include information on everything from volunteering (women do more) to housework (go ahead and guess). It has some findings I don’t quite know what to do with, like: “While male students are more likely to be victimized with weapons, female students are more likely to experience electronic bullying.” Electronic bullying is definitely a bad thing, but I can’t help feeling as though we’re getting the better end of that deal. We’re a long way from the Eleanor Roosevelt Commission on the Status of Women, which was formed when there were no women on the White House staff doing anything more impressive than typing or cake decoration. “Men have to be reminded that women exist,” Roosevelt tartly told reporters when the all-male list of top Kennedy administration appointees was released. At the time, there were 454 federal civil service job categories for college graduates, and more than 200 were re-

GAIL COLLINS stricted to male applicants. It was perfectly legal to refuse to hire a woman for a job because of her failure to be a man, or to refuse her credit unless she had a husband to co-sign her loan. The median age for marriage for a woman was 20, and the only job open to most women that involved a chance to travel was flight attendant. We’re in a different world, but this latest report highlights the one glaring gap: Working women still make, on average, much less than men. Among people who work full time, women make an average 80 cents for every $1 that men take home. There has always been a big difference: In 1979, women made only 62 percent of what men did. And the report suggests that part of the problem is that women tend to pursue the lowest-paying professional careers, notably teaching. Perhaps part of the answer is just to increase compensation for people who devote their careers to education. Perhaps the governors could take that up next time they get together to discuss public employee unions. I’ve always believed the other big factor is the strain of balancing work and family. Women do better in school — now all the way to graduate school, where they get the majority of doctoral degrees. And young single women tend to make higher wages than young single men. The change comes at the point when many women have to consider their children. Perhaps the House of Representatives could take that up next

every 30 days.

time they get together to discuss whether they really want to eliminate federally financed child care programs. “The thing that we’re hoping men will focus on: This is not a woman’s issue; it’s a family issue,” said Valerie Jarrett, who leads the White House Council on Women and Girls. That’s really the big story for today. Americans are so used to the fact that women are capable of doing anything that we hardly ever discuss it. It’s been a long time since the leader of NASA said “talk of an American spacewoman makes me sick to my stomach.” A change that happened later, and the one that’s going to be driving the future, is that women’s ability to succeed in their work life is now a matter of concern for both sexes. The turning point for American women really came on the unknown day when the average American couple started planning their futures with the presumption that there would be two paychecks. In a country where no one has real power without a serious economic role, we entered a time when, whether we liked it or not, all hands were needed to keep the economic ship afloat. Even women who get the opportunity to stay home when their children are young have to be ready to jump back into the work force if their partner is suddenly laid off. A while back, I was visiting a college in Connecticut where most of the students were the first in their families ever to go beyond high school. I was talking with a group of young men and women, and I asked the men how many of them felt it was very important that their future wife be a good earner. All of them raised their hands.

The emergence of a great nation from a continent’s tragedy WASHINGTON — ver the last few decades, the obituaries of World War I veterans have come, according to historian Martin Gilbert, “like a muffled drum.” With the recent passing of Frank Buckles — the last doughboy — Pershing’s army has finally retired from the field. The drum is stilled and put away. What was once called the Great War is largely forgotten, obscured by the vivid moral clarities of the greater war that followed. Confused schoolchildren are left to ponder the question posed by Andrew Roberts: “Why should a Maori New Zealander have died in Turkey and been buried in Greece because an Austrian had been shot by a Serb in Bosnia?” Actually, the first war was a preview of what would follow. Machine guns. Civilian bombing. Unrestricted submarine warfare. Poison gas. All were technologies that allowed killing without aiming, applying the tools of mass production to the business of slaughter. Death became impersonal, mechanical and vast.

O

Some of history’s most malignant ideas got planted in the churned earth of that struggle. “Jews and mosquitoes,” wrote Kaiser Wilhelm II, “are a nuisance that humanity must get rid of in some way or another. I believe the best would be gas.” The German government put Vladimir Lenin on a sealed train from Zurich toward Russia, hoping to destabilize an enemy. Adolf Hitler, a soldier in the trenches, vowed vengeance. From laughably trivial beginnings, World War I shaped history on a massive scale. A whole continent suffered nervous collapse; another rose to unprecedented prominence. Europe’s failure of nerve was understandable. A million Britons died. Among French men who were 19 to 22 at the outbreak of the war, more than 35 percent were buried by its end. France was left with 630,000 widows. The trauma was deep. Constitutionalism and liberalism appeared weak and discredited — a contrast to totalitarian confidence and purpose. The very idea

MICHAEL GERSON of human progress was overturned. In France and England, ideals of glory and courage seemed obscene beside the images of bodies on barbed wire. But the United States, in contrast, was at the beginning of innocence. The European tragedy was the American arrival. At the start of 1917, the American Army had a little over 100,000 men, lightly armed with no large-scale combat experience since Appomattox. By August 1918, America had deployed more than a million soldiers to Europe. It was the energy of a rising nation. Frank Buckles remembered himself, in those days, as “a snappy soldier ... all gung-ho.” The Army he joined established durable impressions of Americans

— fresh off farms, gawky, wide-eyed, singing, violent. The Germans, wrote John Keegan, “were now confronted with an army whose soldiers sprang, in uncountable numbers, as if from soil sown with dragons’ teeth.” British and French officers saw the arriving Americans as enthusiastic but inefficient. Americans saw themselves as cleaning up the messes of a tired civilization. Europeans thought the United States claimed too much credit for minimal sacrifices — about 50,000 battle deaths in total, compared to Britain’s loss of 20,000 men on the first day of the Somme offensive alone. A pattern of awe and resentment was established. John Maynard Keynes called President Woodrow Wilson a “blind and deaf Don Quixote.” Wilson argued, “If America goes back upon mankind, mankind has no other place to turn.” Perhaps both were right. In the following decades, America lost the innocence of the Fourteen Points and the League of Nations, but not the

sense of national purpose that brought Americans to the Argonne Forest. It was the same spirit found on D-Day and in the long defense of Europe from Soviet aggression. That enthusiasm, in some quarters, has waned. Economic self-doubt turns a nation inward. Global engagement is often difficult, expensive and thankless. Some long for America to be, once again, merely a nation among nations. But the forces that led the United States into World War I were not random or unique. America moved beyond its shores on the momentum of its founding principles along with a growing recognition that our nation is not immune from the disorders of the world. Times change. Old battles, once fresh in their horror, are forgotten. But America still produces men and women like Frank Buckles. And sometimes mankind has no other place to turn.

O Caught in the Middle East minefield Incentives, A

merica seems trapped in an exploding Middle East minefield. Revolts are breaking out amid the choke points of world commerce. Shiite populations are now restive in the Gulf monarchies. The politics of rebellion are often bewildering. Theocrats in Iran, kings in the Gulf states and Jordan, dictators in Egypt and Tunisia, and mad-hatter thugs in Libya are all gone or threatened. Some, like Mubarak, were often proAmerican. Others, like Libya’s Gadhafi, hate the United States. Calls for reform now come from a bewildering menu of protesters — Muslim extremists, secular pro-Western liberals, hard-core terrorists and everyday people who just want a better life. Strategic concerns frame almost every one of these upheavals. Israel may soon have enemies on all of its borders. Iran is close to getting a nuclear weapon. All the unrest reminds us that today’s supposed friend is tomorrow’s possible enemy — with no certainty about who will end up with a deposed strongman’s arsenal of weapons. America either has military relations with or gives foreign aid to (and sometimes both) Egypt, Jordan and the West

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON Bank. Over the last decade, terrorists who have been caught in the United States plotting our destruction came almost exclusively from the restive Middle East. Tens of thousands of American troops are dispersed throughout Iraq and the Gulf region. Oil-starved China has a hungry eye on these resource-rich, unstable states. More than half the world’s daily supply of exported petroleum is shipped from the Middle East. There are only a few constants in the maze of unrest. The common enemy is autocracy that has impoverished and terrorized Middle East populations for decades. Only a few governments in the general region that have consensual and legitimate governments — Israel and, to a much lesser degree, Turkey and Iraq — have escaped the most recent unrest. What has been the American response to these crises? In a word — confused.

President Obama assured a savage Iranian theocracy in 2009 that we would not meddle in its internal affairs, amid apologies for our supposed sins more than a half-century ago during the height of the Cold War. In response, Iranian leaders brutally and unapologetically put down popular unrest. The Obama administration at first announced that Hosni Mubarak was not, and then was, a dictator. It then declared, in temporizing Jimmy Carter fashion, that he should have left yesterday, now, soon or in the fall. The Muslim Brotherhood was said to be variously suspect, not violent, a needed player in the transition — or apparently all that and more. Finally, we just shut up and assumed that the military coup that threw out Mubarak, suspended the constitution and quieted the demonstrators would transition to consensual government. For too long, Obama stayed quiet as Moammar Gadhafi slaughtered Libyans with tanks and artillery. A cynic might have concluded from Obama’s weak, “make no mistake about it” sermons that if a ruthless regime kills its own, hates America and bars the press, the United States will appear indifferent. In contrast, if the strongman is more pro-

American, allows protests and lets in the BBC and CNN, then he sort of has earned our rebuke. Meanwhile, as much of the world’s oil supply teeters on the brink, the Obama administration has stopped new drilling for seven years in the eastern Gulf of Mexico; halted further oil and gas exploration in many regions of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming; and will not reconsider drilling in small but petroleumrich areas of Alaska. Instead, we hear the same tired Van Jones-like fantasies about wind and solar power as gasoline prices approach $4 a gallon in recessionary times. It is past time for the Obama administration to speak in one voice on behalf of nonviolent transition to secular constitutional government in the Middle East. Meanwhile, to preserve our autonomy and options, America in the short term needs to stop borrowing money and to drill like crazy for oil and natural gas, as we fast-track coal and nuclear power. Right now anything less is near-criminal negligence.

ust when the Securities and Exchange Commission might hope to shed some of the shame of missing the biggest investment scam in U.S. history comes news that its own top lawyer profited from the scheme. He didn’t do it knowingly because, embarrassingly enough, the SEC didn’t know it was a scam. Still, David Becker, the agency’s former chief counsel, wound up profiting from Bernard Madoff’s investment pyramid. That’s according to Becker’s own explanation. And so he is among the hundreds of people, funds and firms that bankruptcy trustee Irving Picard is suing to recover money for those who lost principal in the Ponzi scheme. Becker became a beneficiary because his mother invested $500,000 with Madoff that became $2 million by the time she died in 2004, according to the suit. Her sons cashed it out in early 2005, almost four years before the pyramid collapsed. However unwittingly they profited from the crime, there’s more than a little irony in the suit Picard filed against the three Becker brothers to recover the $1.5 million the family made off of other investors. For one thing, Picard is claiming in other, more spectacular suits that sophisticated investors and banks, including JPMorgan Chase, knew or should have known they were pumping money into and reaping profits back from a massive scam. But of all those who should have known that there was something deeply wrong with Madoff’s operations, the SEC tops the list. It’s the agency’s core job to know that sort of thing, yet it blew off the very idea. Beginning in 1992, the SEC repeatedly failed to take seriously “numerous credible and detailed complaints” and “never took the necessary, but basic, steps to determine if Madoff was operating a Ponzi scheme,” the agency’s inspector general concluded in a 2009 report. The report blamed poor staffing and simple ineptitude. Precisely because the SEC investigations never uncovered the fraud, Becker was spared any knowledge of the allegations. In a letter to inquiring House Republicans last week, he defended him-

self by citing the same inspector general report that slammed his agency. “The report finds that the complaints were not reviewed and distributed as they should have been,” Becker wrote, which is to say they never reached his office. Picard’s suit against the Beckers doesn’t claim that any of them “knew or should have known” Madoff was scamming his clients. They’re being sued because they took out more money than their mother invested with Madoff. The presumed profit that they and other net winners received was actually principal that other, newer investors were putting in. If the SEC had done its job, there wouldn’t have been so many newer investors — perhaps not even Dorothy Becker. That the SEC’s ineptness made it possible for Madoff to draw in more and more victims can’t be disputed. Not only did the agency fail to shut down the fund,

the clean bill of health it gave Madoff became a marketing tool for him. So some victims blame their losses on the SEC’s botched investigations and are suing the federal government because of it. Among them, a favorite exhibit is the SEC inspector general report. Whether any of the suits can survive a governmental immunity defense remains to be seen. A federal judge in Los Angeles tentatively dismissed such a case in April and tossed it out last month. But no federal judge in Manhattan, where most of the suits are pending, has decided that question. As for Becker, he served two stints as the SEC’s top lawyer, from 2000 until mid-2002 and then again from 2009 until he stepped down this week. The first time around, he “helped shape the commission’s major policy and regulatory initiatives,” the agency said in a news release. None of those initiatives produced an agency sufficiently

missed last Sunday’s Oscar telecast. I was too busy watching the deadsolid lock for the award for Best Documentary Film Not Even Nominated: the horrifying, heartbreaking education movie “Waiting for Superman.” At first glance, you might suppose that “Waiting for Superman” is the kind of movie that Oscar voters would love, a poster child for Hollywood liberalism. It follows the struggles of five kids — four of them from hard-luck innercity neighborhoods — to get into decent schools. What these children are trying to escape are schools where failure is literally a way of life. Daisy’s plucky ambitions for medical school will have to overcome a cold statistical reality: Less than three out of every hundred students who graduate from her neighborhood high school have completed the courses necessary for admission to

a four-year college. And if those numbers are discouraging, consider the statistics of a neighboring high school where 40,000 of 60,000 students who have entered over the years have flunked out. In one of the film’s most chilling moments, “Waiting for Superman” displays an animated map showing the locations of thousands of such “failure factories” across the United States, poisoning their neighborhood like toxic waste dumps as they spit out broken kids. That’s the fate the families in “Waiting for Superman” are frantically seeking to avoid. Penned in by school boundaries, lost in bureaucratic quagmires that take little notice of aptitude and less of desire, all five kids in the end are reduced to bingo numbers: Their futures are staked on being picked in long-shot lotteries for the few spaces available in high-performing charter schools in their areas. But “Waiting for Superman” is a documentary, not a fairy tale,

and the final scenes will make you cry. This is not what America is supposed to be about. So why wasn’t “Waiting for Superman” nominated for an Oscar as best documentary? The answer was plain during Sunday’s ceremony, when several of the winners gave shout-outs to the belligerent public-employee unions laying siege to the capitol of Wisconsin. Hollywood, which ought to give itself a Lifetime Achievement Oscar for its dedication in portraying itself as a town of regular working Joes, is thoroughly unionized. And “Waiting for Superman” casts a hard eye on the role of teachers unions in wrecking American schools. It includes footage shot in New York City’s notorious “rubber rooms,” where hundreds of teachers accused of misconduct ranging from drunkenness on the job to sexual molestation of students lounge around playing cards or sleeping, on full salary, while union lawyers

drag out their disciplinary hearings for years at a time. It includes heinous statistics like this one: In a typical year in Illinois, one of every 57 doctors loses his medical license, one in every 97 lawyers is disbarred ... and just one in 2,500 teachers loses his license. Right-wing union-busting, yeah? Except Davis Guggenheim, who wrote and directed “Waiting for Superman,” is a left-wing Democrat who won an Oscar for the global-warming documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.” He also made the biographical video of Barack Obama screened at the 2008 Democratic convention. “That was a difficult piece,” he said of the teacher issue during a recent TV interview, “because I believe in unions — I’m a member of the Director’s Guild. ... That’s a difficult thing to sort of dissect that issue.” Too difficult for Oscar voters. Glenn Garvin is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

aggressive or capable to uncover the Madoff fraud. He returned two months after Madoff’s arrest to “coordinate the commission’s efforts at revitalization and reform,” SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro said in the release. That was five years after he and his brothers had cashed out their mother’s Madoff investment. Still, the agency and its top lawyer were involved in issues that would eventually affect the Becker brothers. Under David Becker’s signature, the SEC filed legal briefs to say what compensation Picard could legally pursue for Madoff investors. Becker told the House Republicans that he sought advice from the agency’s ethics guru as to whether he should recuse himself. Amazingly, the ethics lawyer found no reason to. And so he was involved when the agency staked out a legal position opposite that taken by some Madoff victims who wanted compensation based on what their Madoff investments were supposedly worth when the scheme collapsed. Picard and the SEC, with Becker as top legal counsel, successfully argued in bankruptcy court that they shouldn’t be paid on the basis of false account statements that Madoff generated, although that’s a point a federal appeals court will take up Thursday. Becker had consulted with the ethics counsel because he realized that issue might hit him financially through clawback suits Picard would file, he told House members. It did affect the Beckers in a way that clearly doesn’t benefit them. When they liquidated their mother’s Madoff account, they received what Madoff said it was worth: $1.5 million more than the original investment. That’s why Picard is suing the Beckers. It’s why Becker, who just left his job at the SEC, is now on the opposite side of Picard in litigation — because the two men were on the same, winning side when arguing that nobody deserves pyramid profits. And it’s why the SEC probably can’t wait for Madoff finally to retreat from the news. Ann Woolner is a Bloomberg News columnist.

An inconvenient truth for teachers unions By Glenn Garvin

By Gregory Rodriguez sk not what your country can do for you. Ask what your country has done for you lately. With apologies to John F. Kennedy, that’s what concerned citizens should be doing to get their heads around the debate in Washington about the appropriate size and role of government. Despite how riveted we are by Washington blood sports, average citizens don’t always understand what “government” means. That’s not because they’re dumb; it’s because the nature of government has changed drastically. Once upon a time, average Americans got most of their payback from government directly, in the form of Social Security, public assistance or the GI Bill. Since the 1970s, however, a growing share of federal social largess has been hidden in what Cornell University political scientist Suzanne Mettler provocatively labels “the submerged state” — a conglomeration of tax incentives and subsidies. Three programs make up most of this “hidden welfare state,” as another scholar calls it. The first is employer-based health insurance, which is subsidized by the ability of businesses to deduct some of the costs from their taxes. The second is the home mortgage interest deduction for individuals, and the third is the creation of tax-free retirement accounts, into which employers and employees can contribute. Yale political scientist Jacob Hacker calculates that such “tax-advantaged” programs make up almost a third of America’s social welfare spending. Yet a lot of citizens simply don’t recognize these as government benefits. We don’t get U.S. Treasury checks for mortgage interest deductions (the deduction just lowers our tax bill). Nor do we directly see the hand of the government in our health care; we deal with a private insurer, private doctors and our employers’ benefits representatives, not a national health service. And our 401(k) plans just seem like savings accounts, not a government benefit. The way we’ve set it all up has, in Mettler’s words, “shrouded the state’s role, making it largely invisible to ordinary citizens.” In fact, according to a 2008 survey by the Cornell Survey Research Institute, 60 percent of respondents who received a home loan interest deduction told surveyors that they had never used a federal social program, not realizing that the tax break was the result of the government intentionally forgoing revenue to further the social goal of homeownership. Likewise, respondents who benefited from tax-advantaged education savings accounts, such as 529 plans, were even more likely (64.3 percent) to say that they had not used a government program. Not surprisingly, this lack of recognition that government is helping us pay for college or a new home affects people’s view of how useful Washington is. In the 2008 survey, respondents who had benefited from direct, visible programs — such as those who received unemployment benefits — were significantly more likely than those who benefited from the “submerged state” to report that they paid their fair share of taxes. The submerged-state problem plagued President Obama’s 2009 stimulus. Mettler points out that 1 out of 3 stimulus dollars was “tucked into tax breaks (for individuals) rather than in more obvious forms of social welfare such as relief payments or (direct) job creation.” It should be no surprise, then, that a CBS poll found that twice as many Americans thought Obama had raised their taxes as thought he had reduced them, or that, according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll, more than 50 percent of Americans thought the stimulus helped Wall Street and only a quarter thought it helped the middle class. The costs of the hidden social programs are not just political. Last year’s National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform found that providing for government programs through tax breaks prevents us from fully acknowledging exactly how the government is spending its money. It called for closing off many tax breaks to provide “accountability and transparency to the federal budget process.” Of course, tax codes tend to make peoples’ eyes glaze over. We do battle over abortion rights or illegal immigration, rather than get a grip on the submerged state. Yet it affects more Americans’ lives than those issues combined, and we barely have a clue.

3. “Gideon’s Sword” by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child (Grand Central)

Carol Edgarian’s “Three Stages of Amazement” shares a surprising amount of common ground with last year’s most arguedabout novel, Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom.” Whatever the overarching themes of either book may be, it’s the sharply observed detail and intensity that matter: the spectacle of high-strung, hot-blooded, restless people conflating their own private crises with the political and economic turmoil of their times. What Halliburton and the Bush era were to Franzen, Silicon Valley and the Obama presidency are to Edgarian’s turbulent, furiously compelling book. For the sake of concision, let’s sideline all further thoughts of Franzen to concentrate on what Edgarian has done (in half the space, with less loftiness but more soap-operatic plot tricks). “Three Stages of Amazement,” her second novel, is set in San Francisco. Its 42-year-old heroine, Lena Rusch, worked in television as a “radical, save-the-world and nail-the-bastards producer” until she bore three children, one of whom died in the delivery room, and she became saddled with domestic obligations. “Lena liked to give the pious hausfrau eyes,” Edgarian writes, “but, really, not so long ago she had been the family lark.” Lena’s husband, Dr. Charlie Pepper, was a full-time surgeon

until he got involved with a startup business venture involving new robotic operating-room technology. Together “they were as ordinary as any two people wanting more,” until they began spending so much time apart. Then the marriage got rocky, and the world got rocky too. Edgarian starts the book just before the Obama inauguration, with the economy plummeting and Bernard Madoff (who looks to Lena like “a Jew with a George Wash ing ton haircut”) in the news.

Lush and risky imagery The basic outline of this story isn’t what elevates “Three Stages of Amazement” from the commonplace. But it goes like this: Charlie needs funds for his venture. He secretly goes to the man Lena hates most in the world: her uncle Cal Rusch, a venture capitalist with a “thrillseeking noggin,” a Madoff aspect, a hilltop mansion in Pacific Heights and a vast fortune. “And just to put a cherry on it, an old boyfriend of Lena’s works with Rusch,” Charlie says of the secret deal. “Lena doesn’t know he’s there, but I do.”

The old boyfriend is a steamily evoked Italian named Alessandro, whose own Palo Alto venture firm is housed in “a playhouse for his geek friends.” (Decorative features include a World War I prop plane, a whale skeleton and 50 guitars.) Lena married Charlie on the rebound from Alessandro. And she tamped down her wanderlust accordingly. “But her dreams proved more difficult to control,” Edgarian writes, using the kind of lush, risky imagery that can make her book so startling. “Each night, as Lena closed her eyes, a symphony of barechested men greeted her, their deep-river voices calling for her to come over.” A few further plot developments are inevitable: Charlie must tell Lena about his business venture. Lena and Alessandro must be put on a collision course. And Lena must lock antlers with her uncle. All of this is set in motion once Paco, the majordomo at Cal’s Pacific Heights palace, marches seven blocks down a steep hill and delivers an invitation to Charlie and Lena’s embarrassing little pink bungalow. Cal and his wife, Ivy, another

strong, improbably appealing character in a book that is full of them, are giving the party to end all parties. Lena and Charlie are grudgingly invited. The party is this book’s extended centerpiece, delectably described and then dissected. Surely some of the amazement in Edgarian’s title is about this. Elite Democrats show up, still buzzing about the new president, who had them all weeping. So do the tech wizards whose new fortunes have raised the benchmarks for casual extravagance. Cal’s dressing room has a cherrywood massage table. His office has leather tiles on the floor. Lena shows up angry. She remains very much a “nervy Arabian” instead of “a draft horse,” as Edgarian sees her, Lena with the “grass green eyes” and “Audrey Hepburn neck,” with “a bit of a fairy about her, a bit of the witch.” Alessandro appears too. And so does Norah Jones, paid to sing at the party and performing “Come Away With Me” as if she were crooning right in Lena and Alessandro’s ears.

Wearying protagonist But when the party’s over, the book takes a sharp turn, heading off in an unexpected and fearsome direction. Here’s what can be said about this mood swing, without spoilers: This part of the novel overpowers the rest, perhaps more than Edgarian intended. It beggars the importance of Lena’s anomie as more graphic and earth-shaking events upstage her ever more wearying frustra-

Foreclosure a catalyst to fantastic journey “No Passengers Beyond This Point” By Gennifer Choldenko (Dial Books for Young Readers, 244 pgs., $16.99)

By Susan Carpenter Los Angeles Times

“Foreclosure” is a word that’s gotten a lot of news coverage in recent years, paralleling the economy’s downward spiral. It’s less common to read about financially induced home loss in fiction, especially in books for young readers. But in the new middle-grade novel “No Passengers Beyond This Point” by Gennifer Choldenko, foreclosure is the catalyst for a fantastical journey taken by three siblings after their single mother loses their home. Only one of the children saw it coming. Twelve-year-old Finn had noticed the family no longer ate meat for dinner — just spaghetti and mac and cheese. There were a lot of calls on the answering machine from an entity called “Home Fi.” The only part of his mother’s behavior that didn’t make sense to Finn involved field trip forms that she let pile up. His mom was a teacher. She knew to get them in on time. It was only after his mom called a family meeting that Finn and his sisters, India (age 14) and Mouse (age 6), were clued in. The next night, the three kids would be shipped to Colorado to live with an uncle. Their mom would be staying behind to finish out the school year so she’d stand a better chance of landing another job after the move. It is a bleak situation that, though fictional, seems real because the emotions of this predicament are channeled through the three kids, who alternate narrating chapters. They are, by turns, anxious and sad as they board the airplane that will take them to an uncertain future in an unfamiliar place. Their mom had always told them to make lemonade when life gave them lemons. Still, In-

dia wonders: “What if I don’t like lemonade? What if I’d rather drink cyanide?” What happens next is entirely unexpected — not only for the book’s characters but also for its readers. Touching down in Denver, the kids are picked up by a driver in a feathered pink taxi and driven to an alternate reality where they are greeted as if they were celebrities, with cheering fans and salutations written by airplane skywriters. The kids are housed in individual dream homes. Finn’s has a retractable basketball court. India’s, an enviable wardrobe. Each house also comes with a more perfect version of their mom. Their good fortune isn’t meant to last — only to lull them into believing this new catered-to, individualized reality is better than the one they were forced to leave. When each of them is evicted after a mere few hours in paradise, it’s up to the kids to realize they are better off together and to figure out how to escape from a world that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. When two of the children are trapped inside lockers, the instructions for opening it are a threefold mind-bender. “One: Remember what you want to forget. Two: Ask yourself a question you can’t answer. Three: Remember what you wish more than anything you

hadn’t forgotten.” In some ways, “No Passengers Beyond This Point” reads like a middle-grade mash-up of Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” and James Patterson’s “Witch & Wizard” series. The difference is the range of emotion. In presenting the story from three children’s ages, and points of view, Choldenko does a wonderful job of channeling the anxieties of young people trying to cope with a situation beyond their control. Like her bestselling “Al Capone Does My Shirts,” which received numerous accolades when it was published in 2004, “No Passengers” is literary and relatable. Each character is distinct, presenting a worldview that is age-appropriate and linguistically authentic even if the situation it relates to is apocryphal. Six-year-old Mouse is particularly delightful as she tries to figure out why her big sister is so mean (it must be her pimples), and wonders why she can’t seem to stop pestering her (India would otherwise forget about her). When India

praises someone’s intelligence for knowing how to spell “prosciutto,” Mouse counters: “I’m smarter than that. I can spell hors d’oeuvres.” Simultaneously heartwarming and spirited, “No Passengers Beyond This Point” takes readers on an unexpected journey about the importance of family, no matter what happens.

tion. Her nostril-flaring moodiness wears thin. Edgarian nonetheless keeps Lena at the center of the book’s universe. It’s a dangerous miscalculation. And the author has a lot more trouble ending this book than she did starting it. So things become disappointingly perfunctory. Too many broad, convenient, Lena-friendly strokes of fate shape the book’s final pages.

Strange and true That said, “Three Stages of Amazement” is a fiery, deeply involving book with an eccentric streak that keeps it constantly surprising. Its thoughts about strength, endurance and good fortune are neatly embodied by the image of a bubble on the cover. It carries blurbs from Jennifer Egan and Amy Bloom, which signal that this is not a run-ofthe-mill family story or romantic fiction. Egan and Bloom are writers who share Edgarian’s fearless capacity for surgical precision. Edgarian renders her setting so lovingly that San Francisco — a “gorgeous sugar-cake” of a city, with its capacity to weather destruction and reinvent itself, with its drastic extremes of physical and fiscal altitude — becomes a major character in its own right. And some of her novel’s drama hinges on the simple, foolproof power of men and women to misunderstand each other. “Na, you can’t talk about ’em together,” somebody here says succinctly. “It’s like wolves and apples.” Strange and true.

Family glamour and dysfunction in ‘Haywire’ parents divorced. Both remarried soon after. For a time, the children lived with their mother, then were sent off to boarding schools. The fissures of early childhood soon wrenched wide open, and while it might be possible to identify pivotal moments, it seems besides the point once the avalanche is really in motion.

“Haywire” By Brooke Hayward (Vintage, 352 pgs., $16)

By Liz Brown Newsday

“I never saw my mother sign an autograph.” It’s a wonderfully economical sentence: in one line Brooke Hayward evokes the dizzying combination of glamorous privilege (“autograph”) and stringent codes (“never”) that marked her Hollywood upbringing. And over all of it hovers the divinity (“my mother”), actress Margaret Sullavan (“The Shop Around the Corner”). The other god in this story is father Leland Hayward, the dashing agent who represented not only his wife but also her ex-husbands Henry Fonda and William Wyler as well as scores of other stars (Jimmy Stewart, Fred Astaire and Greta Garbo, to name only a few). When he tired of being an agent, Leland turned to Broadway, producing “South Pacific” and “The Sound of Music.”

Real-estate guide It’s hard to believe “Haywire” ever went out of print. Brooke Hayward’s memoir was a bestseller when it was first published in 1977, and with all the boldface names, it’s easy to see why. Yet the book also functions as a reference guide to California real estate (glimpses of Brentwood when it was mostly avocado trees), aviation history (Leland founded Southwest Airlines) and Hollywood life behind the scenes (social posturing via children’s birth-

Nervous breakdowns

day parties). At its core, though, this is the story of a family: “When we were very young, life seemed like an exciting game, invented, explained, and directed by Mother.” “We” is Brooke and her younger siblings Bridget and Bill, all completely in awe of their glittering, charming parents. The children have servants, a barn all to themselves, a pony, trips to Saint-Malo, France. They share a tribal link with the Fondas, learning to smoke with Peter, starting food fights with Jane. There is an intoxicating sense of freedom and yet, as the author notes, the paradox of being “forbidden to deviate from a strict set of rules.” There are spanking sessions for Bill that never seem to end, and at times a devastating psychological warfare. Love in this family is large, fierce and undiminishing, but so is the damage. When Brooke was 10, her

At different times, both Bridget and her mother had nervous breakdowns and stints in a psychiatric facility. After various acts of rebellion, Leland had Bill institutionalized. In 1960, Margaret Sullavan died of an overdose. Nine months later, Bridget did, too. After a series of strokes and pancreatitis, Leland died in 1971. In the book’s new epilogue, Brooke writes that in 2000, Bill was severely injured in a motorcycle accident, and in 2008 he shot himself. The tragedy is beyond mythic. Reading “Haywire,” I thought of Jean Stein and George Plimpton’s “Edie,” which came out four years later — not only in terms of subject (so much beauty, so much wreckage), but also in the quoted reminiscences that Brooke weaves in from family friends (Diana Vreeland, Truman Capote). One important difference, though, is that Brooke Hayward is still very much the narrator. Her epilogue is remarkable for its uninflected tone. She offers nothing remotely consoling about redemption or overcoming adversity. And that is one of the most bracing and strangely affirming aspects of this book.

Poor little Petra, just 13 and growing up in South Wales, is one of thousands of girls smitten with David Cassidy. The year is 1974, and Cassidy is the creation of a brilliant marketing campaign that preys on the hearts of teenage girls. As you may or may not remember, depending on which planet you were born on, Cassidy was the star of the TV series “The Partridge Family.” He branched off into his own career as a bubble-gum rock icon. Cassidy’s career fizzled and died in a series of media scandals, including a spread of him naked in Rolling Stone (photographed by Annie Leibovitz), admitted drug and alcohol problems and other grave disappointments to his fans. Worst of all, in 1974, at a Cassidy concert in London’s White City Stadium, a 14-yearold girl named Bernadette Whelan was crushed to death and nearly 1,000 fans in the crowd of 35,000 were injured.

David Cassidy fans When the novel “I Think I Love You” opens, Petra and her friends are blissfully ignorant of these eventualities. They are too busy studying up on Cassidy — reading every little scrap, every magazine article — collecting posters and other paraphernalia and dreaming that they might one day become Mrs. Cassidy. Petra is a chatterbox, and so we are privy to every flutter of her stolen heart. She aces all the Cassidy quizzes and so enters into a mega-contest. First prize — a trip to California to meet him in person. Petra studies for the prize. Pores over every issue of the Essential David Cassidy Magazine. As for the boys her own age — hopeless, useless. And the girls — mean as ever. “You chose the kind of friends you wanted because you hoped you could be

like them and not like you. To improve your image, you made yourself more stupid and less kind.” Who wouldn’t try to escape, if only in imagination? Petra writes letters to her true love and, lo!, she receives replies. Little does she know that these replies are written by a would-be student of literature whose only hope of a salary lies with the firm that markets Cassidy. Yes, Bill is hired to write replies to the thousands of girls who bare their souls each day. It pays the rent. In this delightful, giddy novel, there can be no doubt that their lives will one day collide. They meet twice. Once in 1974, when Bill is sent to the concert at White City Stadium, and again in 1998. Back in 1974, Petra was too disillusioned after the White City debacle to collect her prize for the great Cassidy quiz. In 1998, she makes a drunken call to the magazine demanding the prize she won so many years ago — a trip to America to meet her childhood heartthrob.

Years later ... What possesses Petra, now 38, to pick up the phone and demand her prize? Well, her mother’s death; her husband’s announcement that he wants a divorce; her own teenager, Molly, who has begun the excruciating rejection process known as individuation. The magazine’s editors — in-

cluding Bill, who has graduated to editorial director — in their infinite wisdom, sense a golden opportunity. They will fly the middle-aged woman to meet the aging superstar in Vegas. Imagine Petra’s surprise when she learns that Bill, who goes along for the ride, was the letter writer, the literary hand of David Cassidy. It’s a fantastic, unbelievable plot, spun from the impossibility of celebrity adoration and the gorgeous naivete of young love. Allison Pearson, whose novel “I Don’t Know How She Does It” sold more than 500,000 copies in 31 languages, is the master of the balancing act. Somewhere in all this frippery, she finds those universal chords, the stuff of great novels. For example, what it means, as a girl, to search the world for clues upon which nothing less than one’s survival depends — what to wear, what to want, whom to trust. And the weight of one’s mother, the desire not to be one’s mother at all costs, the raw energy that makes a girl want to escape a world in which she cannot possibly ever be appreciated or fully realized.

Funny, witty Pearson is a very funny writer. She builds her characters through dialogue; her vernacular is fast and full of period wit, in this case the unhinged 1970s. She is also a reporter — this novel was born out of her experience interviewing Cassidy in 2004 for the Daily Telegraph Saturday magazine. Like Petra, she was once a crazy fan. “I felt like a time traveler,” she writes in her afterword, which includes the transcript of her interview. “If David was still twenty-four in my heart, how old did that make me?” In that interview, Pearson asks Cassidy the question that has been nagging at her all those years. “David Cassidy, was your favorite color ever brown?” “Brown?” Cassidy replies. “Never. No.” “For eighteen months I wore nothing but brown because I read in a magazine it was your favorite color.”

Unions Continued from F1 On money alone, many politicians are pretty tough negotiators. They have both the motive and the means. They want to spend their budget on projects that are sexier than government pensions. And, as Rendell says today, politicians can often win a fight with unions in “the court of public opinion.” No wonder that academic papers spanning more than 30 years have found that government workers receive compensation that is similar — with somewhat lower salaries and somewhat better benefits on average — to that of private sector workers with similar qualifications. One study went so far as to include workers’ scores on an intelligence test, to ensure the comparison was apples to apples. Overall, government workers are modestly underpaid or overpaid, depending on which technical accounting assumptions are used to value their pensions. Either way, modestly is the crucial word. There is no good case that government pay is a major cause of the budget problems now facing states. Unfortunately, though, politicians do not have the same incentives to be tough negotiators on issues besides money. Why not? Because most government agencies are monopolies. They face no competition. Whether they perform beautifully or miserably, they cannot be run out of business. They also can’t be run out of business by pushing off costs until a future day. So they delay too many costs, and they don’t perform their jobs well enough. The delaying of costs is obvious. Both politicians and union leaders have decided that generous future benefits offer the easiest way to hold down spending and still satisfy workers. The result is government pay that’s skewed too heavily toward pensions and health insurance. To be clear, I’m making an argument that’s different from “Government workers are overpaid.” I’m saying that they are paid in the wrong ways — in ways that make life easier on union leaders and elected officials, at least initially, but that eventually hurt both workers

Company’s swimwear on big stage

T

hose paying close attention to Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue that came out last month (guys, you know who you are) may not realize that a young Bend company provided three of the small bikinis. Having your bikinis chosen for modeling in this issue is big in the swimwear world. Bend-based Beauty & the Beach had three different suits on three models, including cover girl Irina Shayk for one of her inside photos. Describing to a journalist with no fashion sense what it means to be in this issue, Beauty & the Beach co-owner Katie Wilson referenced what she read from another designer, “This is like the Oscars for swimwear.” Or to put it another way, Wilson said, “It’s kind of like the Vogue (magazine) of swimwear.” Get in and you get noticed. “It’s kind of like a credential,” said Wilson, who co-owns the company with her boyfriend, Joe Eitel. “When you drop (the name) Sports Illustrated, it makes people listen.” Those people are typically buyers for retailers looking to get a jump on fashions. Beauty & the Beach also sells to customers online, www.beautyandthebeachhawaii.com, and locally through At the Beach in downtown Bend. Wilson said last week that new wholesale accounts have almost doubled in the last couple of weeks. She estimates orders from landing in the issue spike by about 30 percent — an estimate based on experience. Beauty & the Beach has been in the issue, either online or in the magazine, the last three years — and the company only started in December 2008. It landed in the issue’s online edition in 2009, and the magazine and online editions in 2010 and 2011. “It kind of just kicked us off and helped us get a name for ourselves,” Wilson said of the first SI exposure. That was New York designer Lisa Curran’s experience, too, according to an Associated Press story last month advancing the swimsuit issue’s release. Curran has been in the issue 11 of her 12 years in operation, and in the beginning it helped her business, providing her credibility as a designer, AP said. Designers submit thousands of suits to SI each year, Diane Smith, SI swimsuit editor, said in the AP story. SI will take 300 or 400 on a trip and take about four or five trips a year. About 90 photos end up in the magazine, AP said. Wilson said she sent about 60 suits, including the one worn by Shayk on Page 77 that includes a top made with about 200 small sea shells Wilson sewed into it. The same shot appears online. Model Alyssa Miller sports one of Beauty & the Beach’s popular crocheted suits on Page 122. Six more shots of Miller in the same suit appear online. And model Kathy Leutner, one of eight models SI is asking readers to vote on to appear in the 2012 issue, is sporting a Beauty & the Beach suit in a magazine pullout of the eight that starts on Page 22. She also appears online. The Beauty & the Beach line is “gorgeous,” said Kelli Brooks, who owns At the Beach. “It’s a fashion piece; it’s a statement piece. If you’ve got the body for it, you should definitely wear it.” Being in SI is a big deal, Brooks said. Women read it, too, to see the styles coming out, she said. Wilson and Eitel handle design, shipping and marketing out of their Shevlin Park-area home. Their suits are made in New York and four overseas countries. Wilson, whose suits retail for about $80 to $120, is expanding into a line of organic swimwear this year and organic clothing next year, saying green is important to her. “It’s easy to go green. You don’t have to sacrifice style or price.” Wilson and Eitel, who met in Maui when Eitel was doing construction work there, moved the company to Bend in March 2009 for business reasons and a love of the area. Eitel, who has a business degree from Oregon State University, dropped building to focus on the company. He’s also pursuing a nursing degree. But his career focus is to continue taking care of business at Beauty & the Beach, which has grown each year. “It’s insane how busy we are,” he said. The SI exposure should help fuel that momentum. “It’s just been real exciting for us and for our company,” Eitel said. John Stearns, business editor, can be reached at 541-617-7822 or at jstearns@bendbulletin.com.

SNIP AND SCORE SOME TIME OFF

From

corporate

to the

classroom Bend man trades executive career to teach business skills to Gilchrist High students, taking them to state competition By Ed Merriman The Bulletin

fter a 25-year career at Shell oil’s corporate headquarters in Houston, and as owner of a Shell auto center in California, Mike Telford decided to take a different path. He traded the corporate life for the classroom — and that has made all the difference for him and the students who take his business classes at Gilchrist High School. “As a poor kid growing up in Pendleton, I just feel blessed that I had the opportunity to attend the University of Oregon and the path that it led me on,” said Telford, 57. “I felt like I had accomplished most of the things I set out to accomplish in business. I made quite a bit of money and I thought teaching would be a way to pass along my love of learning and the business skills that I picked up over the years.” Telford began his corporate career with Shell right out of college in the 1970s, managing land leases for oil and gas exploration and development. Then, in his mid-40s, he sought a career change that would keep him closer to home after his son was born with a heart condition. He left the corporate job that often took him away from home on business travel and bought a Shell auto center in Fresno, Calif., with about $2.5 million a year in sales. After several successful years owning and operating the auto center, Telford sold his business and fast-tracked his master’s degree in teaching. Already armed with his bachelor’s degree in business and economics from Oregon, Telford said it only took him one year to earn a master’s in teaching at National University.

Seated next to the school mascot grizzly bear at Gilchrist High School gym, Mike Telford talked about his decision to trade a corporate career with Shell oil in Houston to teach business classes at the small Central Oregon school. Telford makes the hourlong drive daily from his home in Bend to Gilchrist to teach and help students in his classes who qualified to compete in the state Future Business Leaders of America competition April 7-9 in Portland. His first teaching experience was a summer job at a military-style boot camp for juveniles in California. “I thought if I could manage a classroom of students with gang affiliations, then the rest would be easy,” Telford said.

March basketball motivates vasectomy madness By Markian Hawryluk The Bulletin

Need an excuse to stay home from work to watch the college basketball tournament this month? Why not get a vasectomy? Jumping on a national trend, Bend Urology Associates is offering a March Madness special enticing men who are considering vasectomies with free pizza, a bag of frozen peas and a medical excuse to spend at least two days on a couch watching basketball. “Some different urology groups around the country have been doing this and so we just sort of took upon the idea,” said Dr. Meredith Baker, a urologist with the group. “We’re trying to let the community know it’s a viable option.” Bend Urology has set up 48 slots for the week of March 14, when the tournament opens, more than double its usual 20 slots. It will add more availability as needed. See Vasectomy / G3

Mercury

thermometers headed for extinction

Mercury-containing devices, like thermometers, are slowly being phased out. Metallic mercury vapors can cause permanent damage to the brain, kidneys and developing fetuses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thinkstock

People who run a business alone often want it to appear bigger than it really is — as if it has teams of employees and unlimited resources. This is now more possible than ever thanks to some tools that so-called “solopreneurs” and other small businesses have at their disposal, giving them the reach and capabilities of far bigger companies. Last year, Logan Hale, founder of YourLittleFilm, which is based in suburban Los Angeles and creates custom short films, was a sponsor of the children’s dance tour Baby Loves Disco, staffing a booth at a series of Southern California events. The promotion was so successful that he wound up with 400 leads — and a problem. “I don’t have time for that kind of followup,” he said. Instead, Hale used Batchbook, customer relationship management software for small businesses. Although he had to enter the leads, Batchbook integrated with MailChimp, a Web-based e-mail marketing platform that automatically generated and sent a follow-up e-mail to every lead. Batchbook then kept track of the responses. See Reach / G5

By Frank D. Roylance The Baltimore Sun

BALTIMORE — It was one of Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit’s most famous inventions, in 1714. But after nearly 300 years on the market, the still-common mercury thermometer now appears headed for extinction. While many people probably still have them in their medicine cabinets or on their walls, the retail sale of mercury thermometers has been banned or restricted in at least 18 states, with more such legislation pending elsewhere, according to the Interstate

Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse. Mercury thermometers are also on their way out in a wide variety of industries, along with a long list of other measuring devices, thermostats and switches that rely on mercury components. And beginning Tuesday, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in Gaithersburg, Md., has begun longer provide calibration services for manufacturers and users of mercuryin-glass thermometers — a critical service it had provided to American

industry since 1901. NIST and the Environmental Protection Agency are taking other regulatory steps that would limit the use of those mercury-based products, and provide alternatives. “Due to elemental mercury’s high toxicity, EPA seeks to reduce potential mercury exposures to humans and the environment by reducing the overall use of mercury-containing products, including mercury-containing thermometers,” said EPA spokesman Dale Kemery.

A new wrinkle: cotton’s high cost Rising price puts pinch on clothing retailers, manufacturers By Joan Verdon The Record (Hackensack N.J.)

HACKENSACK, N.J. — Price surges in cotton and other fabrics have retailers and manufacturers feeling stretched, and facing a tough choice: Pass higher costs along to their customers or absorb them, thus cutting into profit margins. So far, consumers haven’t really felt the impact of cotton prices that have jumped more than 130 percent in a year to the highest prices per pound since the Civil War, but retailers and manufacturers say that probably will change when fall merchandise begins arriving in stores. A decrease in the cotton supply because of poor crops and reduced planting in response to the recession, rising labor costs in China and India, and renewed demand for apparel as the economy recovers, have combined to make cotton a hot commodity. “I’m getting calls all the time — ‘You got any cotton? You still have that cotton?’” said Danny Letzt, co-owner of Les Tout Petits, a children’s clothing maker in Ridgefield. Letzt has a “long” position in cotton, with several dozen rolls of fabric he stocked up on in the past and is selling to other manufacturers searching for the fabric. “It’s like having cash,” he said. “It used to be that you couldn’t give it away.” Les Tout Petits has cotton to spare in part because it has shifted its fashion line a bit away from more casual, cotton T-shirts and toward dresses and party clothes that use polyester blends, sequins or other specialty fabrics. But the cotton shortage has driven up demand for other fabrics as well, and Les Tout Petits recently learned it couldn’t get a fabric it needed for one of its designs. It’s also been hit with price increases for polyesters as well as for cotton. Lois Letzt, Danny’s wife and business partner, designs the Les Tout Petits fashions sold in trendy boutiques in Manhattan and throughout the country and have been worn by the Obama daughters. She said the company is trying to cut its costs rather than pass price increases on to retailers. Consumers will pay extra for special-occasion outfits, such as party dresses, but

Lois and Danny Letzt, owners of Les Tout Petits clothing company in Ridgefield, N.J., are selling stockpiled cotton to other manufacturers. “It used to be that you couldn’t give it away,” Danny Letzt says. not for basic staples, a retail fact of life pushing her to focus more on special-occasion clothes, she said. This month and next are when retailers head for trade shows to view fashions and place orders for fall, and store owners say they’re already seeing the impact of the cotton-price surge. Joyce Hamrah, co-owner of Hamrah’s, an upscale women’s clothing store in Cresskill, N.J., toured designer showrooms last week and saw cotton shirts priced at $400 to $500 that would have been $300 a year ago. The manufacturers “tell you this is the price, and we have to decide what we want to do in the way of buying it or not,” Hamrah said. The store’s buyers are shopping around more to find in-demand fashions at good quality at the best prices. “For a basic shirt, or something that’s simple, $500 is a lot of money,” she said. Although Hamrah’s is coming off a good 2010, according to its owners, and its customers are buying enthusiastically, Hamrah said the store is not going to assume it can pass along price increases. “Any retailer with a little common sense is going to

watch it,” because even affluent customers want to get a good value for their dollar. Anna Anagnos, owner of the Eat Your Spinach children’s boutique in Ridgewood, said she hasn’t yet seen price increases from manufacturers, because her current inventory was ordered last year. “But what happens for back-to-school we don’t know,” she said. Anagnos sells clothes by appointment to customers who want special-occasion gifts for granddaughters and nieces, and those customers are less likely to balk at price. Audrey Storch, whose Waynebased company Hugs To Go LLC sells dolls made of 100 percent cotton fabric, said her prices for supplies are up 30 percent over last year. She was in China in November to source fabric and said it was clear price increases for consumers are inevitable. Still, she said, she is reluctant to raise prices because that might affect the number of dolls she sells. “I’ve become very inventive and creative in cutting my costs here,” she said. The cotton price issue was triggered by the financial crisis and recession, said Ram Sareen, chief executive officer of Tukatech, a Los Angeles-based com-

pany that helps clothing manufacturers reduce fabric waste through computer software and other technologies. “When farmers saw the demand for clothing going down, they did not plant the crops,” he said. “The actual drop in sales was less than 14 percent, but the brands and retailers started cutting the inventory and they reduced the buying by 40 percent.” Analysts are predicting clothing prices will rise 10 percent in the fall. Sareen, however, said increases ultimately could be even higher. “The problem is really going to surface when they start finding out that the 10 percent increase is not going to solve the pricing problem,” he said. The price increases have some merchants watching cotton prices the way investors watch the stock market. “All my suppliers are telling me they’re not even putting out price lists anymore,” said Frank Frisina, owner of Windjammer T-Shirts, a Long Island company that sells custom-printed shirts to schools and organizations. “What you do is you go online in the morning and you find out what the price is that day,” and then decide if you want to place an order, he said.

Group to rate environmental impact of clothing By Tom Zeller Jr. New York Times News Service

With just a few clicks on Google Maps, anyone can call up a satellite image of blue dye and other chemicals washing downriver from textile mills in Xintang, China — the world capital of blue jeans production. But U.S. shoppers in a typical department store encounter no obvious connection between those polluting plumes of dye — or really any other environmental impact — and their favorite pair of designer blues. In many cases, the company whose name appears on the label is only marginally better informed. But a new and prominent assemblage of retailers, clothing manufacturers, environmental groups and academics plans to change that. Calling itself the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, the group intends to announce Tuesday that it is developing a comprehensive database of the environmental impact of every manufacturer, component and process in apparel production, with the aim of using that information to eventually give every garment a sustainability score. Later, the coalition hopes to produce a label that would share some version of that score with shoppers, giving them a much more detailed view into the supply of fabrics, zippers, dyes, threads, buttons and grommets that come together to form the clothing they buy, as well as what impact the creation of that clothing has on both people and the planet. The coalition includes middlemarket companies like WalMart, JC Penney, H&M and Hanes, along with more traditionally environmentally mind-

ed manufacturers of rugged outdoor clothing like Patagonia and Timberland. The 30 founding members also include Duke University, the nonprofit Environmental Defense Fund, the labor rights group Verite, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Americans spent roughly $340 billion on clothing and shoes last year, which is about 25 percent of the global market, and virtually all of it — 99 percent for footwear and 98 percent for clothes — came from somewhere else, according to the American Apparel and Footwear Association. And the various pieces and parts of any single garment — a jacket, say, or pair of pants — often come from such a diverse multinational chain of fabric mills, dye operations and assembly plants that quantifying the environmental impact of a single item is nearly impossible. Initially, the coalition wants to help individual companies clean up their supply chains. Company members have all agreed to chip in some money to begin the effort, with the larger companies being asked for additional “seed funding” to support the development of a sustainability indexing tool. Rick Ridgeway, who heads sustainability efforts for Patagonia and is the chairman of the new coalition, estimated that the group would spend $2 million by the end of 2011 on developing the tool. “People are at such different points on the sustainability journey, and working together can accelerate our ability to make change,” said Alex Tomey, a vice president for product development and design at Wal-Mart, which has worked closely with Patagonia to get the coalition off the ground.

The obscure nature of the global supply chain for apparel has long been a concern to many environmental groups, including Greenpeace, which reported on the Xintang textile mills in December. While individual manufacturers and smaller segments of the apparel industry have begun trying to quantify their effects, a robust study of the entire life cycle of the apparel and

footwear industries is only now getting under way. “The apparel supply chain is long and quite complicated, and many of our current apparel companies — brand companies — don’t really own all the production facilities and factories,” said Huantian Cao, an associate professor of fashion and apparel studies at the University of Delaware.

Mercury

Mercury in your home

Continued from G1 Within five years, NIST officials expect the mercury thermometer will be officially obsolete. And none too soon. Exposure to high levels of metallic mercury vapors can cause permanent damage to the brain, kidneys and developing fetuses. Brain damage can result in irritability, behavioral changes, tremors, changes in vision, hearing and memory problems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although they are being phased out, older devices may still contain mercury, including: • Fever thermometers • Nondigital thermostats • Safety shutoffs in irons and washers • Trunk light in your car • Lawnmower fuel-level indicator

Alternative devices Many manufacturers and other industries have moved away from mercury devices, either out of concerns about the hazards and costs of breakage and cleanups, or because they have found something better. “They have become obsolete in various industries as we work to remove them from the measurement stream and find alternative thermometers,” said Greg Strouse, leader of NIST’s Temperature and Humidity Group. If you were to compare the technologies available today, he said, “mercury is usually the least accurate of all current thermometers in the marketplace. Digital manufacturers have worked extremely hard to create products that work to meet the needs of end users, and usually better.” “We have yet to find an application that we can’t solve with an alternate thermometer,” Strouse said. For those still using mercury devices, NIST is working with the EPA and private industry to revise more than 700 federal product standards that have long required the use of mercury thermometers, and find alternatives. They will identify practical alternative thermometers and write them into the new standards. Almost half of those standards have already been amended to allow the use of nonmercury liquids in glass, or digital thermometers using electronic sensors. The process is expected to take several more years.

New standards, new challenges The EPA has also proposed new rules that would introduce more such flexibility into both the federal Clean Air Act and the Toxic Substances Control Act, where they currently require the use of mercury thermometers. Accurate temperature readings are critical to many industrial processes, and commercial applications such as storage facilities for blood or vaccines. One of the last and biggest challenges for NIST is the petrochemical industry. Natural gas, oil and other fuels expand as they warm up, so temperature measurements are critical to gauging the amount of gas or oil in, or dispensed from, a storage tank. And the industry’s measurement standards have long required finely calibrated mercury-in-glass thermometers. NIST has begun working with the American Petroleum Institute and the American Society for Testing and Materials (an international body that develops consensus technical standards for industry) to identify thermometer technologies that can replace mercury. “Give them credit for level of effort,” Strouse said. “There’s a lot of culture behind their measurements and a lot of money attached. They need to be sure the replacements work to the level they need them to.”

Vasectomy Continued from G1 While the group hasn’t been formally tracking demand for the procedure, Baker said, the physicians have noticed a spike in patients just before the Super Bowl and the basketball tournament. Using suggestive names such as Vas Madness or Snip City, vasectomy specials linked to the basketball tournament have become standard operating procedure for hundreds of urology practices. But would any man really face the knife just to watch basketball? John Murphy, 37, of Bend, said it’s more an issue of timing. “I heard the ad on the radio, and I was planning on getting this done, so I thought, ‘What better way to do it?’” he said. “I could sit at home and watch ‘Oprah’ or ‘The View,’ or I could watch March Madness.” It seemed to him a better option than sitting indoors recovering during the summer or, even

Kevin Gibson, plant manager at the Honeywell warehouse in Rosedale, Md., shows how thermostats with mercury are bagged and boxed for recycling.

BGE has been replacing customers’ thermostats with energy efficient programmable digital thermostats. Many of the old ones being removed contain mercury switches. Honeywell is collecting these after they have been replaced. They are then bagged and shipped to Thermostat Recycling Corp., where the mercury is recovered. Here, a detailed view of the mercury in one of the thermostats. The declining demand from business and industry for calibration of mercury thermometers at NIST labs tells the tale best. “Back in the early 1900s, they employed five people to do nothing more than calibrate mercury thermometers,” Strouse said. “When I started here 20-some years ago, there was one person in the lab calibrating close to a thousand of them a year. Last year we calibrated four.” And so far in 2011, there have been none. Nor is there any clamor from thermometer manufacturers to save the devices from oblivion. Only one U.S. manufacturer of mercury thermometers — Miller & Weber, in Queens, N.Y. — remains in business. And it, too, is working “extremely hard” to help phase out the technology, and sell customers its more advanced products, Strouse said.

Not just thermometers Thermometers aren’t the only concern. There is mercury in a variety of measuring devices, including some barometers, strain gauges, flow meters, blood-pressure cuffs, and in some electric switches, like the ones that turn on automobile trunk lights when the lids are lifted. In 2001, Maryland banned elemental mercury and mercuryadded devices from the state’s primary and secondary schools, except vocational schools. Subsequent collections removed 6,845 devices and 349 pounds of mercury. “The law is they’re not supposed to be there,” said Maryland Department of the Environment spokesman Jay Apperson. But evidently some remain. On Feb. 11, after a mercury-filled scientific thermometer broke in a Baltimore elementary school, at

worse, on a good powder day. “If I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it on my own terms.” Murphy is an avid college basketball fan — he’s pulling for the University of Connecticut to win it all — but he’s never taken time off work just to watch. He’s been told to expect a two- to three-day recovery. Scheduling the procedure on Tuesday or Wednesday would leave patients resting on the couch for the opening-round games on those evenings and the full days of action on Thursday and Friday. Murphy is hoping to “milk it an extra day” to watch the Saturday and Sunday games as well. “We encourage people to take it easy, really put their feet up and not do anything for 48 hours,” Baker said. “And then after that, they can slowly get back into activity depending on how they’re feeling. Everybody experiences it a little differently.” A vasectomy is a relatively simple procedure that cuts or seals tubes from each testicle

least 20 students and three teachers found themselves surrounded by hazardous materials teams. No one was sickened and no one required decontamination, according to the MDE. But 20 pairs of shoes were sent to a hazardous waste landfill, and the school system faced a costly cleanup. A broken mercury barometer in a science teacher’s office in 2004 caused the evacuation of a section of South Carroll High School. But for most Americans, the nearest mercury is probably in their home thermostats. Millions still have the iconic, round “T87F” Honeywell thermostats, or others like it, on their walls. “It is the second-most-recognized corporate symbol in the world, after the Coke bottle,” said William O’Connor, energy efficiency district manager in Baltimore for Honeywell. The company works with Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. to collect and recycle 800 to 1,000 old thermostats a week — 60 percent of them containing mercury switches — as they’re replaced with programmable digital thermostats under BGE’s Peak Rewards program. Each mercury thermostat contains a glass bulb holding at least 2.8 grams of mercury. The mercury is part of the switch that turns the furnace, heat pump or air conditioner on and off. That’s the equivalent of the mercury in five or six fever thermometers.

Proper disposal Since 2009, BGE has replaced almost 61,000 residential mercury thermostats and recycled 507 pounds of mercury. Customers who elect not to turn over the old device to BGE are instructed in how to dispose of it safely. But there are millions more in

that supply sperm. The operation leaves the patients effectively sterile and is regarded as permanent because reversal is costly and not always effective. Baker said her group’s rates of vasectomies have increased with the downturn in the economy as couples worry about having an unplanned pregnancy while money is tight. Some insurance plans cover the procedure, but many patients must pay the roughly $1,500 cost themselves. Murphy said he’s taken some ribbing about his viewing arrangement this year from his buddies, but more often than not, his friends see the inherent wisdom of his decision. “There’s some razzing,” he said, “But it makes me laugh, they always finish off saying, ‘My wife is talking to me about getting mine scheduled, too. Maybe I should call?’” Markian Hawryluk can be reached at 541-617-7814 or mhawryluk@bendbulletin.com.

schools, offices and plants, and they continue to be damaged or vandalized, with costly results. In May 2007, 30 students and four adults at Waverly Elementary and Middle School in Baltimore had to be decontaminated after students ripped thermostats off the walls, stomped on them and released the mercury. Mercury vapor levels in the school were tested and found to be high, and several surfaces were contaminated. Three students were taken into custody. A growing number of states have banned their sale. Three major thermostat manufacturers — Honeywell, General Electric and White-Rogers — have stopped making devices with mercury switches. They formed a nonprofit corporation, Thermostat Recycling Corp., or TRC, to collect and recycle all brands of wall-mounted mercury thermostats, including those from utilities, contractors and local hazardous waste programs. Between 1998 and 2006, TRC collected 560,000 thermostats nationwide, containing more than 2½ tons of mercury. Even so, most old mercury thermostats are probably just thrown away, and their mercury goes illegally into landfills and incinerators. A calculation by the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association estimated that, in Massachusetts in 2006 alone, more than 107,000 mercury thermostats containing 710 pounds of mercury entered the state’s waste stream. Of those, only about 6 percent were recovered by TRC and other community programs.

Leadership lessons from ‘American Idol’ By Tom Fox Special to The Washington Post

The nonprofit Partnership for Public Service and The Washington Post’s On Leadership online site jointly proESS duce the Federal Coach, hosted by Tom Fox, director of the partnership’s Center for Government Leadership. The goal is to “engage, inspire and learn” from workers, whether new hires, contractors or managers at the highest level.” Fox’s “American Idol” kicked off its 10th season with new judges and a new batch of hopeful contestants. Although I know many people don’t like to admit that they watch “American Idol,” I am not one of them. I not only like the amazing singers and the ones who make me cringe, but I also take in a number of leadership lessons hidden within the show. That’s right — leadership lessons from “American Idol.” Specifically, managers can learn from the crucial conversations that the judges — Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler — have with each singer about his or her performance. Now that the Top 24 finalists have been selected, the judges must have honest, direct and sometimes uncomfortable conversations about whether contestants are likely to achieve their hopes and dreams. For many supervisors, these are just the type of conversations that they try to avoid at all costs. So, what can managers learn from the likes of Randy Jackson about how best to approach and handle difficult conversations? Here are a few tips: • Make your motivations clear. Randy typically begins his feedback with a disarming remark: “You know I like you, right, Dawg?” This opening lets the singer know that the critical feedback he’s about deliver is intended to help improve the singer’s performance. Without that indication of intent, singers could be left thinking that Randy just wants them off the show. As a manager, you need to state your intent clearly with employees before diving into difficult conversations. Are you trying to help them improve their

performance, position them for a promotion or otherwise achieve their career goals? Start the conversation by letting them know your motivation upfront. • Focus on facts first, AY not feelings. Even though I get tired of Randy telling the singers that they’re “too pitchy,” this feedback is based on fact and not on their sense of style or personality. When beginning what is likely to be a difficult conversation, it’s better to start with the facts before the feelings to help establish a common understanding of the problems that you and your employees can work on together to overcome. • Bring the box of tissues. There’s a lot of crying on “American Idol.” We’re all human, and even the most professional among us can become emotional when confronted by a situation that we don’t really want to discuss or when told something that we don’t want to hear. As a manager, it’s important that you prepare for your employees’ emotional responses as well as your own. When you find an employee is reacting emotionally, try to slow down and take a few minutes to allow him to compose himself. Ask whether the employee is prepared to continue, and if not, I suggest taking a break and returning to the conversation an hour or two later. Be sure to resume the conversation and complete what you need to cover. • Close with clarity. While simply having a difficult conversation can be cathartic, it’s not enough. You need to close with a concrete set of next steps. Too often, I find that the “American Idol” judges fail in this regard. Instead of finishing the conversation with “Do better next time,” you need to delineate your expectations and a time frame for accomplishing a set of goals. Otherwise, you run the risk of having the same conversation again in the future. I also encourage you to check out the book “Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes Are High” by Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan and Al Switzler, which offers helpful advice on how to handle difficult conversations with confidence and skill.

ucts, said Google Voice made him more efficient. “It lets me respond to a customer’s request wherever I am by voice, text or email,” he said. “And if things get too crazy, I can route the calls to my sister’s phone and she helps me out.”

Continued from G1 “I had a 10 percent response rate, which is great for e-mail,” said Hale. “From those, I’ve already had six jobs.” Although such technology can be a game-changer, David Garland, a business owner who is the author of “Smarter, Faster, Cheaper” (Wiley, 2010), cautions it can also become overwhelming. Tools, he said, should be “simple, functional and really help the business.” Here are some of the tools and strategies Garland, Hale and others use to emulate — and compete against — much bigger companies.

E-mail and social media

Scheduling Garland leans heavily on Tungle.me, a free calendar-management tool. It lets him create a calendar page that syncs with his calendar program and shows clients open times in his schedule without revealing information about other appointments. Once a meeting date and time is approved, the appointment appears on both parties’ calendars. Sonia Gallagher, a lawyer who runs her own business-development consulting firm, Time For Life, uses TimeTrade, an appointment-scheduling software that also helps with marketing. It invites prospective clients to schedule consultations, conferences or meetings with her. “It attaches to Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar to show them

Telford Continued from G1 Then he and his wife discovered and fell in love with the Bend area and decided this is where they wanted to live. Telford and his wife, Susan Telford, a real estate broker with Steve Scott Realtors of Bend, which is part of the Oregon and Beyond Real Estate Group, moved to Bend six years ago when Mike began teaching business classes at Gilchrist High School. He and another teacher carpool to make the daily commute to the town 50 miles south of Bend. “Moving to Central Oregon was like coming home to me,” said Telford, who grew up and graduated from high school in 1972 in Pendleton, which he said has a rural east-of-the-Cascades feel similar to the Bend area. Gilchrist High has 75 students, of which 29 are taking Telford’s business classes. The town of Gilchrist, population 438, is a friendly place where Telford said nearly everyone works for either the school district, Interfor Pacific Lumber Co., U.S. Forest Service or at one of the handful of shops that includes a grocery mart, restaurants and other tourism- and travel-related businesses in the one-block strip along U.S. Highway 97, between Bend and Crater Lake.

Real-world experience “When Mike (Telford) presents information to students about a business plan, he is bringing his experience from out there in the real world directly into the classroom,” said Kevin McDaniel, principal at Gilchrist High. “I think it benefits everybody when people with real-world experience in business and other professions become teachers. I think it is a trend — and a positive trend in my opinion.” Despite the economic slump that has gripped the nation for three years, and Gilchrist’s limited employment opportunities, students taking Telford’s business classes

Logan Hale, the founder of YourLittleFilm, a Los Angeles company that creates custom short films, is one of a number of people who run their businesses alone and use tools that give them the capabilities, or at least the appearance, of larger concerns. your available times,” Gallagher said. “It’s like a personal scheduling assistant.” Stephen Xavier, an executive coach, uses Microsoft’s Exchange e-mail system — a staple among Fortune 500 companies — through Intermedia, a hosted Exchange server, for about $50 a month. Through Exchange, Xavier, whose business is Cornerstone Executive Development Group in Chapel Hill, N.C., links the calendars, address books and e-mail programs on his computers, BlackBerry and iPad. A

change made on a calendar on any one device syncs instantly with all of the others, Xavier said. Because his large clients use Exchange, he says he believes that his using it as well “gives them the impression that I am bigger than I am.” A Google Voice phone number can be especially useful because it automatically transcribes voice mail into e-mail — creating a written, searchable record of messages.

exhibit a positive attitude and optimism about the future. That includes their chances of showing what students from Gilchrist are made of when they compete April 7-9 in the state Future Business Leaders of America competition in Portland. Telford reminds his students the U.S. economy has gone through many up-and-down-business cycles over the years, including the recession of 1974-75 while he was studying business, economics and science at Oregon. “What happened back then was similar to what happened in 2008,” Telford said. In 1973, an oil embargo caused a shortage, and gas prices skyrocketed, triggering the next year’s recession, which Telford said was similar to the recession of 2008 and ’09, after gas prices soared to more than $4 per gallon in the summer 2008. “Fundamentally, you have to believe in the future of the United States. By the time these kids graduate from high school, it will be a whole different ballgame,” Telford said. “What I tell these kids is, ‘You have to be prepared to take advantage of the opportunities that come along. It’s not about luck, it’s about being prepared.’”

be recognized,” Telford said. There are no 1A to 6A classifications like those to keep sports teams competing only against schools with similar student enrollment, Telford said. In the business competitions, students from all schools with FBLA programs compete for the top two or three spots in state that get to advance to the national competition in dozens of categories. They range from business law, business plan, business presentations and job interviews to public speaking, principles and procedures, digital video productions, introduction to technology, concepts and others, Telford said.

How they stack up He said his students work hard during class and also on their own time to meet all the deadlines for doing research and completing their projects for FBLA competitions. Those who fail to meet the deadlines don’t get to compete, which Telford said is an important lesson for business students. Meeting deadlines can make the difference between success and failure in business and other professional careers. Telford’s business students have reason to be optimistic about their chances of success in next month’s state FBLA competition. Last year, 11 of his 24 students at state placed in the Top 10 — and that’s in head-to-head competition against students from all sizes of schools. “There is a lot of talent out in these small schools that needs to

Important lessons Jennifer Scevers, 17, a Gilchrist senior, placed in the Top 10 in three events at the past two state FBLA competitions, including once for digital video production, and twice for business plan. She also works as an office aide in the school business office and, like most of Telford’s business students, she competes in three sports — basketball, volleyball and track. “FBLA helps you prepare for whatever type of business or career you wind up going into,” Scevers said. “You learn how to create a business. You learn about marketing. You learn about finances and how to create a business plan. You learn how to present yourself in a job interview and about what the employer is looking for, so it gives you a perspective from both sides.” Taylor Bean, 16, was one of three Gilchrist business students who placed in the Top 3 at state last year and went to the national FBLA competition in San Antonio. “I went to nationals in principles and procedures, which deals with procedures for marketing, Roberts Rules of Order for public meetings and things like that,” Bean said. He’s learning things in the business classes and FBLA competitions that he hopes will help him reach his goal of becoming an emergency room doctor.

MailChimp, which Hale used to follow up with those Baby Loves Disco leads, also helps him send monthly newsletters to his clients — with the option of creating a Facebook or Twitter link version of the newsletter. MailChimp can send autorespond e-mails as well, which Ruggieri uses to follow up after a customer makes a purchase. “A personal-looking e-mail response is triggered 10 days later asking if the product was satisfactory,” he said. As he did after the Baby Loves Disco tour, Hale puts all of his client leads and contacts into Batchbook. “I can pull up my contacts and find all my client’s information, including social media data — like their last three tweets,” he said. “This gives me something relevant to talk about in making contact with them.” It also pings him when a client’s child has a birthday coming up.

Sarianne Harris, 17, advanced to nationals last year in the introduction to business category. “Introduction to business tests your knowledge about the basics of business. It helps you understand how the businesses operate,” Harris said. “Now, when I go into a store, I know more about how it works.” This year, Harris is competing in the business law category, which focuses on laws by which businesses must abide. Telford said the students who placed in the top of their fields earlier this month at the regional quarterly FBLA competition in Madras advance to the state competition in Portland. Taylor Welsh, 15, said as part of the business program at Gilchrist High, students take job tests that assess their aptitude and interest for different types of businesses or positions. Those tests opened his eyes to myriad possibilities he never knew existed. From the career testing, Welsh said he found he has a high aptitude and interest in becoming a Secret Service agent. He researched the profession and created a Power Point presentation on what’s involved in protecting the president. Cody Berling, a freshman in the business program, said he set his sights on starting an architectural design company after taking the career tests. “I was planning on becoming a policeman, but I thought it would be more practical to be an architect,” Berling said. “I have always liked drawing cross-sections of buildings,” and he said owning an architectural firm offered the potential for much higher pay. Tucker Boone, 15, said taking the business classes have helped him understand what his parents have to deal with running the family ranch near Gilchrist. The classes also helped Boone and Welsh create a business plan to raise cattle the natural way and market them to the growing market of environmentally conscious consumers. Among some of the other students in Telford’s business classes, Leanna McGregor, 16, wants to pursue her love of ani-

his e-mail, so he knows when he last communicated with a client and what was said. Whenever Sorgenfrei sends an e-mail, a blind copy of the message is sent to his Highrise account, where it is archived. “I come across as completely buttoned-up and in-control,” he said, “because I have all the information, files and discussions in one place and can access them before talking to the client.” Recently, when an automotive manufacturer he works with couldn’t find some legal documents it had sent him, Sorgenfrei located them in his Highrise archive. It took him just minutes to send the documents back to the client. Hale relies on OmniFocus, a Web-based task management program with an iPhone app that allows him to capture his thoughts and turn them into actionable items. “Whether it’s that I need to buy milk, call a client, write my e-mail newsletter,” he said, “it gets it out of my head and prioritized, so I know when I’ll do each thing.” Garland solves his clutter problem — the piles of papers and receipts — with Shoeboxed. “They send you a prepaid envelope and you shove everything in there,” he said. “They digitize it and create a content management system for you, then send back the originals.” Shoeboxed has an iPhone app for scanning business cards and receipts; if users send photos of those cards and receipts, Shoeboxed will extract the expense and contact data.

mals by starting a veterinary business; Adrianna Straub, 18, explored the potential of opening a travel agency, but decided she really wants to be an elementary school teacher; and Asia Perkins, 16, was planning on becoming a physical therapist and starting a physical therapy business, but is not so sure after researching and completing a digital video presentation on that topic for an FBLA project. “You learn a lot about yourself,” Perkins said, adding that even though making the video caused her to question whether physical therapy was the right career path for her, she gained confidence in her video production skills after doing better against the competition than she expected. During four years of high school, students in Telford’s classes get an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of business

Offline tools, strategies Many solo entrepreneurs rely on virtual assistants — temporary help hired as needed — who work remotely, usually from their homes. They can handle tasks like research, data entry and e-mail replies. Garland uses virtual assistants about 40 hours a month. “What’s nice is you don’t have an employee,” he said. “This is someone who bills you by the hour, so it’s an expense you can deduct.” Peter Sorgenfrei has a membership in Regus, which enables him to find temporary office space worldwide. “I can show up at any Regus location and work there for the day, get a land line, Internet access and schedule a conference room if I have a meeting,” he said. “As a solopreneur it’s easy to get caught up in a coffee shop thinking big thoughts instead of actually getting work done.”

in six different courses: entrepreneurship, marketing, introduction to business, law, criminal law and personal finance. “The biggest benefit of FBLA is these kids get to measure themselves against other kids from throughout the state, and they do pretty good. They get to be part of a peer group of business students from other schools who are doing the right things,” Telford said. “They are getting good grades, they are setting goals, they are planning their future.” Ed Merriman can be reached at 541-617-7820 or emerriman@bendbulletin.com.

S  D  Luxury lowdown: Audi SUV gives you bang for your buck Special to The Washington Post

Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

Q:

My brother has a 1995 Corvette he is restoring in Florida. He recently rebuilt the engine and transmission. During his last test drive, it seemed that the car was overheating. He opened the hood and did not see the fans working. He was able to drive it home without overheating, but the temperature gauge was much higher than normal. We have cleaned the fuses to make sure that they are making good contact, and replaced the temperature sensor in the water pump. It looks like the fans are controlled by the engine control module. Is there anything else that might be causing the problem? Nice midwinter change-ofpace question. First, bleed the cooling system to make sure there’s no air trapped in the engine. Then with the engine fully warmed up and running, turn on the air conditioning. The primary cooling fan — on the driver’s side — should come on regardless of operating temperature. Both fans should run when coolant temperatures climb above about 220 degrees.

Can you please tell me what the deal is with “cabin air filters”? I normally take care of all the maintenance on our cars but while away at college our daughter took her car in for an oil change and they tried to sell her a cabin filter. Which cars have these? How do they work? How often should they be replaced? Can I do it myself? These filters have been around for a couple of decades in European vehicles and during the past 10-15 years have also been widely adopted in domestic and Asian vehicles. Cabin air filters go by a variety of names and resemble a miniature version of a home furnace filter. The filter is designed to trap pollen and dust passing through the vehicle’s ventilation system, with some additionally claiming to filter allergens, odors, pollutants, soot, carbon monoxide, etc. A cabin air filter typically lives in a slide-out tray within the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) housing behind the instrument panel. Many are easily accessed after uncoupling the glove box and tilting it down/out of the way. Others are accessed from under the hood, or above and to the right of the accelerator pedal. To find yours, consult your owner’s manual or an online auto repair service at a public library, or simply look for the tray. In most cases, once you determine the location, it’s a simple do-it-yourself job. Replacement filters cost between $10$30, from basic pleated paper to fancier multi-stage, and are intended to be replaced every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.

2011 Audi Q5 2.0T Quattro Ba se price: $35,200 Astested: $44,600, including $8,525 in options (Deep Sea Blue pearlescent paint, eight-speed Audi Tiptronic transmission, high-intensity discharge headlamps, power liftgate and onboard navigation with backup camera) and an $875 destination charge. Type: Front engine, all-wheel drive SUV; four side doors and rear liftgate. Engine: Turbocharged, direct-injection 2-liter in-line four-cylinder engine with electronically controlled, variable valve lift and timing for better fuel economy (211 horsepower, 258 foot-pounds of torque). The engine is mated to an optional eight-speed Audi Tiptronic transmission — replete with high-low gear selection and hill-descent control — that can be operated automatically or manually. Mileage: I averaged 25 miles per gallon on mostly snow-compromised highways carrying a payload, onboard weight, of about 400 pounds.

turbocharged 2-liter, direct-injection, in-line four-cylinder engine (211 horsepower, 258 foot-pounds of torque). So what? So nothing! Real-world driving experience throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions demonstrated that there really is no real-world value to the extra muscle in the Cayenne S — certainly not thousands of dollars more value. It snowed often during much of my combined 1,500-mile trip (in both the Cayenne S and the Q5 2.0T Quattro). The distinguishing drive characteristic in that journey was that I made fewer gasoline stops in the Q5 2.0T Quattro (27 miles per gallon on the highway) than I did in the Cayenne S (22 mpg highway), refilling with premium gasoline in both cases. Both did equally well in the slush and snow. Both handled nicely around curves and in panic situations. But the Q5 2.0T Quattro offered a discernibly quieter and more comfortable

ride than that afforded by the considerably more expensive Cayenne S. Moreover, for the money, the Q5 2.0T Quattro had more stuff — including the high-definition rearview camera that was somehow missing from the long $28,000 list of options in the Cayenne S. That bugs me. Exactly why am I paying more for Porsche and getting less than I am getting with Audi? What is the value of prestige if it offers an affront to common sense — paying more, but getting less in terms of realworld value? The question can be asked in any number of comparisons. And it’s one that automobile manufacturers had better start taking seriously in a consumer electorate noisily, seriously concerned about things such as federal deficits, executive bonuses, and the various financial sleights of hand that brought us the Great Recession and all the misery it entailed.

Q:

By Warren Brown An argument: Optional equipment is passé. It is ludicrous on a car costing $50,000 or more. Standard equipment delivered at that price should include four-wheel disc brakes, onboard navigation, front and rear parking proximity warning systems, a high-definition rearview camera, top-notch cabin materials, excellent build quality inside and out, and an overall driving performance so stunning it serves as entertainment in itself. Any $50,000 car that can’t meet those standards is a waste of money. Cars failing to comply those R E V I E W with standards at prices considerably above $50,000 are a rip-off, a monetized scam trading prestige for ego. It’s time for consumers to put an end to it. I, for one, have had enough. I am no longer impressed by automobiles whose manufacturers would have us believe that value has no valid residence in wealth, that “exotic” means the same thing for automobiles as it does for credit-default swaps. It’s silly. In the language of the day, it is unsustainable, or about as sustainable as a “sustainable deficit.” This rant is the product of experience, most recently in two Audi vehicles — the 2011 A4 2.0T Quattro sedan and the Q5 2.0T Quattro sport-utility vehicle — and the $93,000 (including nearly $28,000 in options) 2011 Porsche Cayenne S sport-utility model. Hands down, with both the A4 2.0T Quattro sedan and, more appropriately, the Q5 2.0T Quattro SUV, Audi offers a heck of a lot more for the money. I know. In the minds of many of you, a Porsche is not an Audi and an Audi is not a Lexus and a Lexus is neither a Cadillac nor a Lincoln and certainly not a Chrysler — any more than a sedan is a sport-utility vehicle. OK, I get the apples-and-oranges argument. What I don’t get is why I can get everything I want and need in a 2011 Audi Q5 2.0T Quattro ($44,600 including $8,525 in options and an $875 destination charge) that I can’t get in a $93,000 Porsche Cayenne S. What’s going on here? Purists will start with the numbers. They’ll point out that the Cayenne S has a 4.8-liter gasoline V-8 engine (400 horsepower, 369 foot-pounds of torque). The Q5 2.0T Quattro comes with a

Cabin air filter a snap to replace in most cars

Is the engine coolant actually above 220 degrees? Use an infrared temperature “gun” to check the coolant’s temperature as it leaves the engine. You are correct that the engine control module, or ECM, controls the cooling fans. But before you dig too deeply into the ECM, check all the fuses, relays and grounds in the cooling-fan circuits. These include cooling fan relays No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3, the 30-amp primary fan fuse and 40-amp secondary fan fuse — all located in the underhood electrical center. There’s also a 5-amp fan fuse in the instrument-panel fuse block. And carefully check, and if needed disassemble and clean, the main ground connection (G117) on the left front frame rail. A poor ground here can interfere with fan operation. I have a 2001 Subaru Outback wagon with 200,000 miles that runs great, but occasionally it gets a raw gas smell that permeates the passenger compartment. It seems to be more evident with colder temps. I did find one small fuel hose that had a leak and replaced it with

Q:

an original-equipment hose, but my wife occasionally still encounters that smell, which can be overwhelming. Any ideas? First off, congratulations on reaching the 200,000mile mark. You’ve obviously taken good care of a good car. The most common causes for the odor of raw fuel are a faulty fuel filler cap, or more likely an issue with the charcoal canister or purge valve in the evaporative emissions system. The canister is under the engine compartment and can be drained if full of raw fuel. The canister is designed to store fuel vapors from the tank and vent them into the induction system when the canister control/purge valve, located on the intake manifold, is opened by the ECM.

facturers: The pickpocket options party is over. It ended when South Korean automobile manufacturers Hyundai and Kia figured out how to give us high-quality, luxury equipment standard at mainstream-family-sedan prices. It ended when Japanese car company Lexus taught German manufacturer Mercedes-Benz how to turn out a first-rate luxury car minus a bloated options price. And if that isn’t enough to persuade you, check out the 2011 Chevrolet Volt. Innovation is standard equipment on that one. And that innovation, including one of the smartest plug-in electric drive systems in the business as well as onboard navigation and a high-definition rearview camera, is offered at a fully loaded price of about $45,000.

charcoal help reduce odors and toxic gases. They also generally fit better, preventing unfiltered air from sneaking around the filter. What happens if you don’t regularly renew your filter? You’ll likely notice an odor, then gradually reduced ventilation airflow. If severely restricted, there’s a long-shot chance of damage to the air conditioning compressor because of decreased evaporator function and the return of liquid refrigerant. Once you see how yucky a cabin filter can become in a year’s time, you’ll want it out of the car for sure. An amazing quantity of sludgy, stinky stuff passes through the ventilation system, largely due to leaf and debris buildup at the air inlet near the windshield/hood intersection. Diligent cleaning of this area as well as under the rear edge of the hood can make a big difference in ventilation air quality, with or without a cabin filter. Cabin air filters are the best thing to ever happen to the quick-lube industry. With other vehicle maintenance needs becoming fewer, this superprofitable and easy-to-perform service couldn’t have come at a better time. Adding to this, a large percentage of vehicle owners aren’t aware they have a cabin filter, or how simple a DIY job many can be. How about you pay to have this done once, but insist on being shown where the filter is located? Then you can decide if you’d like to handle it in the future.

Ben Taylor

The musician, 34, son of James Taylor and Carly Simon, is touring with his dad (above) and working on a new album, Listening. Did your parents give you advice about becoming a musician? My dad let me know that it’s a blue-collar job, that the glamour of it is largely created by the media. So I knew what I was getting into. Were you nervous about joining their singer-songwriter ranks? Yes. Anything else would have been easier. Did you always want to pursue this career? No. It’s funny—I grew up quite happy to be a student for as long as possible. What would you do if you weren’t a musician? I want to make my community more self-sufficient, be more of a grassroots man. I imagine I could be a ski bum pretty easily, too.

Grammy-winning Brit singersongwriter Adele avoids the sophomore slump with this bold, bluesy follow-up to her 2008 debut, 19 (named for the age at which she wrote it). The first single, a footstomping breakup anthem called “Rolling in the Deep,” is already climbing the charts.

with Texas. The Mexican general defeated rebellious settlers at the Battle of the Alamo 175 years ago today, only to have Sam Houston’s ragtag band of egf soldiers vow revenge and win independence less than two months later. Nine years after that, Texas became America’s 28th state—good news for the rest of us! After all, what would life be like without these Lone Star originals? Willie Nelson, who was born and raised in Abbott, has become an American icon as much for his raspy renditions of hits like “On the Road Again” as for his salt-and-pepper braids, squabbles with the IRS, and embrace of the high life. Mariano Martinez built the first frozen-margarita machine in his Dallas restaurant, an invention now housed in the Smithsonian. And with J.R. Ewing returning to TV in the upcoming reboot of Dallas, that everything’sbigger-in-Texas spirit shows no sign of abating. It seems everyone wants a piece of the magic: Over the past decade, Texas has seen its total population increase more than any other state in the union.

I’m looking for a new job and want to ask my former boss for a reference. I believe he thought well of me, but I’m not sure. What’s the best way to ask? —Jason P., Los Angeles

Though it may be hard to tell what your ex-boss truly thinks of you, it’s doubtful he would agree to give a recommendation, then say you were about as

competent as Inspector Clouseau. Still, it does pay to word your request carefully, says Juanita Ecker, an executive coach in Columbia, S.C. “Contact your previous boss and say, ‘I’m looking for someone who’ll be a great reference for me. Do you have the time?’” If he doesn’t feel comfortable doing it, he’ll probably say, “I’m a little busy at the moment.” If that happens, resist pleading—my default response to every rejection—and move on. — Judith Newman

A o Mother’s Journey In an exclusive interview, Emily Procter talks about growing up adopted, her hard-won pregnancy, and how both have shaped her love of family BY ANNE-MARIE O’NEILL / cover and inside portrait BY STEPHANIE RAUSSER

Emily Procter and her partner, music producer Paul Bryan, are squinting intently at the perfect face of their baby daughter, Philippa Frances. It’s not just that the couple is infatuated with tiny Pippa, as she’s known. They’re also trying to answer the question that always preoccupies new parents: Whom does she look like? “Paul and I were both redheads when we were born,” says Procter, as the little brunette stares back, looking a bit bemused herself. “She doesn’t really resemble either of us.” The question resonates more deeply for the CSI: Miami star than it does for many new moms: Adopted as an infant, Procter, 42, has never met her biological parents. All she knows of them is that her birth mother was quite young and in a relationship with the biological father when Emily was born. Between Pippa’s nursing times, Procter settles in for a chat on the poolside patio of her home in Santa Monica, Calif. Sleep-deprived but relaxed in a blue knit • BABY, IT’S YOU tunic, black leggings, and clogs (a departure “ I think family loves and supports you, no from her signature four-inch heels), she opens matter what,” says up about how her own adoption, her parents’ Procter. “I already say to Pippa, ‘I’m unusual divorce, and the birth of her baby here to back you up. have molded her view of what makes a family.

I’d love to have one just like her.” “Well,” I replied with a sweet smile, “you can get one from the children’s home!” My mom just about died laughing. As comfortable as I was with my adoption, the nature-versusnurture question has been a big one for me. I adore my parents, but I always wondered if I would feel a different kind of love— not more or less, just different— for someone who was biologi-

cally related. I couldn’t wait to look at someone who shared my genes. I thought my baby was going to provide a decoder key to my past. But then I looked at Pippa and realized, no, she’s actually the key to my future. I’ve long felt that it doesn’t matter how your babies come to you, just that you have each other. My mother, Barbara, who’s a homemaker, tried to get pregnant for seven years before she and my dad adopted my brother, Whit. Three years later they went back on the adoption list and got me.

of having a family.” His reaction was, “That’s awesome.” (Later, he sent me a pair of sparkly Christian Louboutin heels that I’d told him reminded me of shoes I loved as a child, and that was it. I was there!) Getting pregnant wasn’t easy, and I found that devastating. I really beat myself up for waiting so long when I’d always wanted children and family had been the basis of my happiness my whole life. We did IUI (intrauterine insemination) and two rounds of IVF (in vitro fertilization), and nothing worked. We considered adoption, but the process takes so long. In the end, we gave up on the treatments, and the very next month, I got pregnant naturally. Everyone at CSI: Miami was really great about accommodating me. The scripts were written so that my character, Detective Calleigh Duquesne, was always in the lab, where they could hide my belly. Pippa made her entrance with great timing on Dec. 8, right at the beginning of the show’s holiday break. She was in the breech position, with both feet facing down, so the doctors opted for a C-section. F

Carolina. So it was interesting to grow up surrounded by all that history and tradition when my own genealogical line is basically blank. I’m the new link. Somehow it makes the world seem very intimate. When I was 3, my parents got a divorce. They had been together a long time, and I think they just looked at each other and thought, “Gosh, we’re really different people.” It was the 1970s, and they did a couple of things that were quite openminded: They stayed close, living just 10 minutes away from each other, and they hired a child therapist for my brother and me. I was so little, I remember thinking, “Oh, the lady with the puppets is coming over, and she’s gonna ask me if I’m mad. How can I be mad when she has puppets?” I really admire my parents for making their split so effortless for me and my brother. When they each remarried, bringing stepparents and three stepsisters into the equation, we all traveled in a pack. There were folks in town who couldn’t work out who was my stepmother and who was my mother. At any big family function— holidays, a graduation, a birthday—there were four parents and up to five kids. I’m the youngest. Hence, the acting! Now, I love my job, but work had somehow gotten in the way of having children. Also, I had a boyfriend from home for 15 years, and we never ended up together because neither of us wanted to move. Then a little over three years ago, a friend, the singer Aimee Mann, introduced me to Paul. On our first date, I told him, “You should know that I’m thinking 8 • March 6, 2011

I went to the hospital hoping for an intimate delivery, but there were about 20 people in the room, because Cedars-Sinai is a teaching hospital, and all the students wanted to see the breech baby. Finally, Pippa arrived, a healthy 7 pounds, 9 ounces, and 19½ inches. I was laughing and very happy, and Paul was crying, which I think is sweet. When I saw her, she was so alert, I thought, “Gosh, are you 4?” My first words to her were, “Hey, hi. Well, you’re here.” I have always thought about my birth mother and what she went through. In the hospital room, when the nurses asked, “Would you like us to take the baby?” I said, “No! I do not want you to take the baby from this room!” And I thought, “What if I had to say, ‘Yes, you can take her away—for good.’ ” I cannot imagine how brave and painful that would be, to make the choice to let someone else raise your baby if you couldn’t do it. It was the right choice in my case. And in a few years, once Pippa has settled in, I think we’ll probably adopt a child who’s over 5, because older children often don’t get considered for adoption. My love for Pippa is overwhelming. But after all these years of wondering, the birth of my daughter has helped me see that the love I feel for her is the same love I feel for my mother or father or Paul. For me, family love is family love, no matter what. For the scoop on the shower Procter’s CSI: Miami colleagues threw her, go to Parade.com/procter

The Whole World in His Arms A high school athlete’s simple act of kindness gives a lift to a disabled child and his family

VERYBODY WAS

waiting for Rudy. Patty and Rick Parker were in their cramped kitchen in Melrose, Mass., with their son Ben, 8. Dinner was over. Bedtime was near. Ben’s twin brother, Sammy, lay on a cot in the hallway. Unable to see or speak or control his limbs, he coughed or let out a little moan now and then. Rick and Patty took turns feeding Sammy, who has cerebral palsy, through a stomach tube. He cooed when they kissed his face or stroked his cheek, and when they cooed back, he opened his mouth into a wide, joyful O. A few feet away was the narrow, winding stairway that has become the family’s biggest burden. Which is where 18-year-old Rudy Favard’s simple yet life-changing act of kindness comes in. Until last fall, Rick carried Sammy up those 14 stairs to his bedroom each night. Then Rick had major surgery, and now he can’t lift much at all, let alone a 75-pound child. Patty couldn’t carry Sammy, either. Desperate, she called her pediatrician, who referred her to Elizabeth Paquette, the nurse at Malden Catholic High School, whose students are taught to embrace service. Rudy was the first kid Paquette thought of. At Malden on a partial scholarship, the son of Haitian immigrants was one of the school’s

treasures. A linebacker, cocaptain of the football team, and honor student, he was always willing to lend a hand. The nurse had barely begun telling him about the Parkers when he said he’d do it. Another boy would fill in on game nights, and a third boy would be on standby. When Paquette brought the boys to meet the family, the Parkers cried. It is profoundly isolating to have a child as disabled as Sammy. It’s hard even for friends to understand his all-consuming needs. Patty and Rick, who tried for years to get pregnant, grieve for one son’s lost potential as they attempt to give the other as normal a life as possible. “You plan for your child’s future, but it’s hard to do that for Sam,” Rick said. “You have this pathway he should have taken, and the

pathway he did take, and you don’t want to look at either one.” And over it all hangs the certainty that Sammy’s condition will never improve, even as he grows up. Five nights a week, into this world of love and hurt comes Rudy. (A nurse assists on the other nights.) In the months the family has known him, the teenager has become not just a help with Sammy but a salve for their pain. He and Rick talk football, Patty quizzes him about girls, and Ben usually sits as close to him as possible. Often, Sammy trembles with excitement as Rudy picks him up. “They’re like family,” said the shy senior. It goes both ways: The Parkers were on the field with Rudy’s mother the night the school honored its senior football players.

On a recent evening, a reporter watched as Rudy greeted the Parkers and went over to Sammy, gently lifting the child’s arm and sliding his hands under Sammy’s back. He held the boy close to his chest, and as Sammy made his joyful O, Rudy navigated the stairs. The contrast was stark: the young man preparing to go out into the world carrying someone who never will. It’s a comparison lost on nobody, least of all Rudy. “Can I ask you something? Is it okay if this article is more about Sam than me? He’s done more for me than I’ve done for him,” Rudy said later. “There are times when I don’t want to go to practice, and then I look at Sam. By God’s grace, I can do what I’m doing, so I should keep it up. I’ve never been one to complain a lot, but just seeing Sam reaffirms everything, you know?” The Parkers won’t have Rudy for long. He’s been accepted to four colleges; his choice depends on financial aid and football. The family hopes to be in a bigger home— with no stairs—before he leaves. Until then, Rudy will bound up to this modest house. He’ll carry Sammy up to his room. Then, for a little while, he’ll carry the Parkers somewhere better, too.

Levine’s Tips

Grilled to Perfection P “I like to add

Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, a “meat-and-potatoes guy,” serves up his favorite rib eye

cle

I’m pretty useless in the kitchen, to be totally honest. My instincts are not good. But I make really good eggs—the most artistically perfect eggs on earth—a pretty good poached salmon, and really good steak. I don’t want to spread myself too thin! These are my signature items. I stole this recipe from a friend—or maybe I should say she passed it on to me. Then I modified it a bit. To me, the fattier the cut, the better the steak. That’s probably why I love rib eyes— because they are the fattiest steaks you could possibly eat. And the gristle is my favorite part! Everyone thinks gristle is this horrible thing and you should stay away from it. They cut it off. But with the honey added to it, it tastes so good, it should be illegal.

P ”Serve with

fingerling potatoes drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with thyme, salt, and pepper. Just throw them in the oven after you make the marinade. They turn this into one of my favorite, most hearty, yummy meals.”

Signature Steaks “We’re not a sit-down dinner kind of band. We serve the food in the middle of a big table, and everyone kinda just goes at it family-style. That’s how we roll.” 4 rib eye steaks FOR MARINADE:

1 cup Dijon mustard ½ cup honey Salt, to taste Generous splash of Worcestershire

1. Mix marinade ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes. 2. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. 3. Remove chilled marinade from refrigerator; coat steaks.

THE SAFEST, MOST EFFECTIVE CHOICE FOR A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN Marine Corps Hero Invents Pain Relief and Healing Cream that’s Helped Millions… And It Can Help You Too! Do you live with a pain? If you’re like the more than 70,000,000 Americans who suffer with chronic and acute pain, chances are that you’re facing some kind of pain issue...A condition like arthritis, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, or tendonitis…Neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, lower back pain, knee pain, or sports, trauma, or repetitive motion injury… post-surgical recovery pain….even plain old day-today aches and pains that make it harder to get out of bed in the morning and tackle the day. Now that it’s winter, we may find ourselves suffering from more pains and injuries. Who hasn’t slipped on an unexpected slick wet or icy patch? Tripped on a curb? Over did it while enjoying fun outdoor activities? No matter what the cause, Pain hurts…We don’t like it…And we want relief. And according to Lou Paradise, president and chief of research of Topical BioMedics, you deserve the safest, most effective pain relief available: Topricin® Pain Relief and Healing Cream.

Topricin brings together a soothing combination of 11 homeopathic biomedicines to rapidly relieve pain and help the body heal the damage that is causing pain— without side effects, grease, odor, or harmful chemicals. The proven formula is safe for pregnant and nursing women, children, and diabetics, and will not interfere with any other medications you may be taking. A 21st Century Approach to Pain Relief…Now patented for the treatment of pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Introduced in 1994, Topricin has helped millions of people with painful muscle, tendon, ligament, and nerve tissue damage. And here’s more good news for pain sufferers: In spring 2010, Topricin was awarded a patent for the treatment of pain associated with fibromyalgia.

Lou created Topricin while exploring ways to alleviate his own pain caused by a severe case of bilateral Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which he developed from injuries sustained while serving two tours of duty in Vietnam as a decorated Marine Corps helicopter combat and rescue crew chief. Lou did not want to be a prisoner of pain, and did not want to be dependent upon oral pain relief medications. The result of his efforts: A safe, 21st Century approach to pain relief. “No one should have to live in pain, or suffer the serious side effects of oral pain medications,” says Lou. “I am honored that Topricin has helped so many people enjoy a more vibrant quality of life.” Painful Facts The painful fact is that over-the-counter oral pain medications contain chemicals that are harmful, with dangerous and even deadly side effects including damaging the kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. Moreover, they simply mask pain as they add more toxins to the blood stream. Combine these hazardous side effects with the fact that during the past year there have been massive product recalls for everything from contamination to faulty dosages, it’s no wonder people are now saying NO to these drugs! The same is true for greasy, smelly ointments that feel hot/cold, since they contain camphor, menthol,

capsaicin, and other irritants, as well as parabens, petroleum, and other harsh chemicals. And--like oral pain pills—these topical analgesics temporarily mask pain while flooding your bloodstream with toxins. Pain is the body’s signal that it has damage it needs to heal—and healing is the only true form of pain relief. It’s that simple, and that complex! And sometimes the body needs a little help doing that— which is where Topricin comes to the rescue! In order to heal, the body works to drain toxins from the affected area, restore normal blood flow, and reduce inflammation. Topricin works in harmony with the body by stimulating and supporting its natural healing process. So why suffer in pain? Or take toxic pills with hazardous side effects? Or slather on smelly, irritating, ointments? Topricin gives you the safe, natural healing power your body desires—and that you deserve. The Word is Out! The word is spreading about Topricin—which has been featured on radio, television, magazines, and newspapers. For example, Lara Spencer, co-host of TV’s “The Insider” and a former competitive diver, told Rachael Ray that she “bathes” in Topricin before and after workouts. You can watch her by visiting http://www.topricin.com/rachael-ray-topricin.

By Lee Woodruff

Coming Back to Life As the nation roots for Gabrielle Giffords’s recovery, the wife of ABC’s Bob Woodruff talks about the long road back from brain injury fter my husband,

A

Bob, called to tell me about the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 18 bystanders in Tucson on Jan. 8, I stopped and said a prayer. Then I immediately thought about Mark Kelly, Giffords’s husband. In 2006 I was the one who got that phone call out of the blue. While on vacation with our four kids at Disney World, I learned that Bob, an ABC news anchor on assignment in Iraq, had been riding in a vehicle that struck a bomb. Shrapnel was lodged in his brain, and he lay in a coma. Doctors didn’t know if he’d survive, much less function normally. Today, though, he’s back—back at work and back in my life as a husband and father. Many Americans are hoping that Giffords has a similarly successful recovery. We’re thrilled by every positive report—she watched an hour of TV! she spoke!— and devastated by the setbacks. Still, she and her family may be in for a long haul. In the world of brain injury, the work is hard, the recovery process painful and painfully slow, and the miracles few and far between. Progress comes in blink-andyou’ll-miss-it increments. Bob was in a coma for five weeks, and I got through that time on sheer hope, will, and adrenaline. The kids and I played his favorite Springsteen albums and read the newspaper to him. When no one

could be there, we set home videos to play on a loop. We kept reassuring and touching him, although we received no response—until one day, our daughter Cathryn kissed Bob’s comatose face, and a tear rolled from his eye. Bob emerged from his coma on day 36. He opened his eyes and asked me where I’d been—just like that. But he was missing vast parts of himself, like slices cut from a pie. While he could breathe on his own and answer basic questions, he couldn’t name the president and at first didn’t remember we had twin daughters. My heart broke into a million pieces the time I saw Bob, a man who had a photographic memory, struggle to identify the word for “broom” on a card. Even after he began making

progress, for every two good days, he’d have a payback day and be overcome by exhaustion and pain. Sometimes my fears about our future flew at me like bats in a cave. I felt frustrated that I couldn’t measure how he was doing. It was his therapist who forced me to look at Bob’s writing samples from week to week so that I could see the subtle advances. The hardest part about dealing with traumatic brain injury (TBI) is learning to live every day under a cloud of enormous uncertainty. Because the brain is such a compli-

cated organ and every injury is different, doctors can’t predict how well a person will heal. However, there are some indicators they look for. When Bob came out of his coma, he showed a good amount of mobility, so physicians were fairly certain he’d walk with little impairment. Relearning how to read, on the other hand, took him hours and hours of going over paragraphs. I’d watch him play Scrabble with our then-5-year-old twins, and one of them would need to supply him with a word. We didn’t know if he’d be able to read without difficulty— until he showed us he could. In some ways, recovering from a brain injury is like climbing a steep mountain. The only way to know that you can scale it is by getting to the top. And here’s the thing: Regardless of how miraculous a recovery may be, no one is the exact same person afterward. While I’m thrilled when people say, “You’d never know Bob had been injured,” he can tell you how he’s changed and what he does to compensate. I see these tiny changes, but I don’t feel I should mourn them since Bob is alive and healthy. I know that many caregivers for brain-injury survivors grieve these smaller losses in silence. In the last few years, Bob and I have spent a lot of time talking to and advocating for veterans and other people with TBI. And we realize, every day, just how lucky we are. Let’s continue to keep Gabrielle Giffords and her family in our prayers. But then let’s tiptoe away and give them the privacy they’ll need to travel their hard road. When they’re ready to celebrate in public, we’ll be right there with them.

Ask Marilyn I question the value of daylight saving time. Conserving energy is the point, but some studies show that the opposite occurs. Is it time to go back to nature and keep the same time all year? —Frank AiQuoc, Raleigh, N.C.

I don’t think so. And actually, nature is what changes, not us. Daylight saving time (which starts next weekend) is an effort to tweak a clock-dependent population’s daily habits to stay in sync and even take advantage of those changes. Energy conservation is only one goal. ®

Others include increased traffic safety, crime reduction, and more daylight hours for after-work activity, which surely will have increasing economic benefits. It’s likely that we can use our dramatic seasonal changes to better advantage than we do now. Working out an improved version of daylight saving time—including finding ways to accommodate farmers and others whose lives are inextricably linked to the sun—would be a big step in that direction.
