Redmond may extend land-use permits By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin
Dozens of construction projects in Redmond, some with more than 100 homes, remain uncompleted but have only until this summer to be built. To remedy that, the city is considering giving all of those projects an automatic two-year extension on land-use permits. Among the planned projects are townhomes, a parish events center and hundreds of homes, according to city staff. There are also commercial buildings, warehouses, industrial buildings, a car wash and an assistedliving development. Developers and city staff say the move could help save projects and preserve what’s left of land values. If the Redmond City Council approves the plan during its Tuesday meeting, the city will join Bend in granting two-year extensions to projects already in the works this year. This would be the second twoyear development extension Redmond has granted since the construction slowdown began. “The advantage for the city is a lot of projects have gone through our planning process and been approved,” Redmond Community Development Director Heather Richards said. “Rather than having projects die off because the decision expires, it maintains them as good projects for the future.” Those projects may not even be completed by the current owners or developers, according to Andy High, vice president of government affairs for the Central Oregon Builders Association. The proposed extension could mean more than just keeping specific projects in the pipeline, High said. If a proposed use for a property expires, selling the land can be more difficult.

SALEM — When lawmakers recently took aim at a familiar target — the Oregon Liquor Control Commission — it held particular interest for Rep. Jason Conger, R-Bend. The rookie lawmaker came to Salem with an interest in getting the state out of the liquor distribution business. Then he learned that politics around OLCC are more complex — and daunting — than it had appeared. So he was intrigued to learn of e-mails that surfaced at a recent legislative hearing that focused on OLCC politics, including the agency’s relationship to the beverage industry. The e-mails, discussed at a subcommittee of the Joint IN THE Ways and Means Committee, LEGISLATURE suggested that top OLCC officials worked closely with Paul Romain, beverage industry lobbyist, to undercut a bill pursued by a grocery chain that is battling the OLCC in court. They showed the lobbyist submitting talking points to OLCC Director Steve Pharo for use in a legislative hearing, as well similar interactions. Sen. Betsy Johnson, D-Scappoose, used the May 9 hearing to blast what she said appeared to be an institutional culture that’s out of whack. “The documents concern me because they show that the commission has allowed the ... lobbyist for the beer and wine distributors ... to chart the agency’s course in opposing legislation,” she said. Sen. Jason Atkinson, R-Central Point, went further, saying the OLCC considered itself a fourth arm of government, unaccountable to the courts, the governor and the Legislature. He accused it of “gamesmanship” and “dishonesty.” Pharo, for his part, said that while his agency received e-mails from Romain, the fact that its position aligned with Romain’s was “coincidental.” See OLCC / A4

“We fear no man. We believe in an eye for an eye and a bullet for a bullet.” — John Joe Gray
Fugitive family stuck in one-sided seige By Steve Campbell McClatchy-Tribune News Service
TRINIDAD, Texas — On the other side of the barbed-wire fence, John Joe Gray, a “free-standing man” and fugitive from the law, is locked and loaded for the coming apocalypse or authorities— whichever shows up first. “It’s coming,” he says. “It’s time this country knows God is coming.” A rifle is slung across his back and a gun belt around his waist holds a revolver and extra cartridges. A knife is strapped to the other side of his lean torso. A battered felt hat frames a deeply
lined face and bushy beard. Dangling from a nearby tree, a hangman’s noose strangles a weathered sign that sums up his stance: “Solution to tyranny.” Warily covering Gray’s flanks are two of his six children, sons Jonathan, 39, and Timothy, 33. The dark-bearded, fit and tan brothers are as well-armed as their 62-year-old father. Ten feet behind her brothers and father, long-haired Ruth Gray, 31, stands solemn and silent. She, too, is armed to the teeth. See Family / A5

University of Oregon cheerleaders practice a routine. The NCAA may put cheerleading on track to gain status as a championship sport.
From the sidelines to the main event? By Katie Thomas New York Times News Service
Hundreds of thousands of high school girls put on cheerleading uniforms each year and thousands more continue on to college, taking their place in a thriving American tradition that has been around for nearly as long as football. While cheerleading evokes images of pompoms and pleated skirts, it has relied on increasingly athletic feats of grace and strength in recent years. As participants have perfected their basket tosses and pyramids, and mounted ambitious floor routines, a complicated question has arisen: Has cheerleading become a true sport? For many women, especially those who worked at the forefront of the push for equality in college sports, the answer for a long time was no. See Cheerleading / A5

Your Facebook ‘friend’ may be an identity thief By Mark W. Smith Detroit Free Press
DETROIT — Pam Aughe is never going back. After a year of using Facebook sporadically to keep up with family and friends — two or three times a week, she says — her account was hijacked by a scammer seeking to bilk her friends out of money. According to the alarming counterfeit messages, Aughe, 41, of Clarkston, Mich., was stuck in Scotland. Robbed at gunpoint, she needed money wired to Western Union immediately. Whoever hacked into her Facebook account earlier this year used it to message several of her friends through chat and inbox messages, asking each for money. As Facebook increasingly becomes the window to the wider Web for more than 500 million users, the security of your Facebook account has never been more important. Since 2009, 19 million Americans have fallen victim to identity theft at a cost of $93 billion, according to the Better Business Bureau of Eastern Michigan, which co sponsored the study performed by Javelin Strategy and Research. And Facebook accounts are increasingly being violated as the first step to a wider breach of a user’s identity, security experts say. “The bad guys will take that log-in and password, and they’ll go to banks, they’ll go to e-mail accounts and start logging in,” says Kevin Haley, director of Symantec Security Response, a top Web security firm.
Is it safe? Facebook, with its often deep personal bonds and inherently comfortable environment, is a fertile ground for exploitation by identity thieves as some users lower their guard, experts say. “It’s exploiting trust,” says Dave Marcus, director of security research for leading Web security group McAfee Labs. “If you and I are in the same friends list, I’m not going to think twice that you’re sending me something maliciously.” Aughe’s ordeal — which she says did not result in any friends losing money — has nevertheless changed her outlook on the Web. For her, social networking is a thing of her past. Too dangerous, she says. “It was an easy way to see pictures and keep in contact, but I think I’m just going to have to create something else, because I just don’t feel safe doing it,” she says. The scamster had also gotten access to Aughe’s e-mail account — probably because of their similar passwords, she says — and used it to send more money requests to her contacts. He or she had also changed the passwords of both, locking Aughe out.
How to create a strong password • Use a mix of numbers, letters, punctuation and symbols. • Take a word or phrase that’s meaningful to you and alter it. • Replace the first few characters in your password with numbers or symbols. • The longer, the better. • Avoid personal information, repetition, sequences and dictionary words. Source: Kevin Haley, Symantec Security Response
In the hours and days that followed, Aughe tried to regain control of her Facebook account but kept running into dead ends. Facebook uses information like a user’s e-mail, phone number or a security question to verify identity when a password has become compromised. Without them, it can be hard for the Palo Alto, Calif.-based social network to settle turf wars over the ownership of accounts. Nearly a month after first contacting Facebook through a form online, Aughe says she finally heard back from a Facebook employee — Scotty in User Operations, who apologized for the delay and said the social network was busy with the “high contact rates.” But she had already deleted her account in frustration.
Security systems Facebook says it has technology that prevents much of this from happening. “We have technical systems that operate behind the scenes to flag suspicious behavior and slow it down or block it entirely, and we’re constantly working to improve these,” Facebook spokesman Fred Wolens says. Those automatic red flags worked for Leah Meray, 32, of Ferndale, Mich., whose account was also compromised earlier this year. When Facebook noticed someone logging into her account half a world away in Nigeria, the social network contacted her through e-mail and told her the account would be closed until she could provide some specific details. After she replied with a detailed description of her profile picture, a short list of recent activity on her account and some other details, she was allowed back in. “Within a day and half, everything was back to normal,” Meray says. Cases like Meray’s are more the norm and Aughe’s the exception, McAfee’s Marcus says. Facebook, he says, does a good job of keeping the worst of the attacks under wraps. “There’s a lot that nobody ever really hears about,” Marcus says. “The scams that actually
make it to the news are the small minority.”
What you can do The best way to protect yourself from an attack like Aughe’s, security experts say, starts with creating a strong, hard-to-guess password. But passwords can be discovered through malware, which can infect your computer and discover passwords as you type them. “And then it’s on your machine,” Marcus says. “It’s going to sit there and wait for you to log in to Facebook.” The best defense against malware is an anti-virus program on your computer that runs each day, scrubbing it clean. Facebook also has site-specific security settings such as the ability to individually approve each computer that is able to log in to that account. If someone tries to log in from an unapproved computer or mobile device, an e-mail is generated and the account holder has the opportunity to zap the hacker’s session immediately. For Meray, whose ordeal lasted just more than a day, small security breaches are just a price of admission. “This is the price you pay for the information that we’re able to extract from the Internet,” Meray says. But even with her newfound Web savvy and heightened guard, Aughe says she has moved on forever from the social networking world. “There’s too much of my personal information out there. I’m going to do it the old-fashioned way and just make phone calls, I guess,” Aughe says. “We’ll see if I can find people that way.”
BOGOTA, Colombia — Forget bulk cash. Heavy and hard to hide, it’s simply not the most convenient cross-border conveyance for a 21st-century money launderer. A safer and increasingly attractive alternative for today’s criminal is electronic cash loaded on what are called storedvalue or prepaid cards. Getting them doesn’t require a bank account, and many types can be used anonymously. U.S. crimefighters consider the cards a burgeoning threat that regulators haven’t adequately addressed. In the past year, said John Tobon, a senior U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, the cards have become the preferred means of paying couriers who transport illicit drugs across the U.S. No one knows how big a role the cards play in moving the more than $20 billion in drug earnings that U.S. authorities estimate crosses from the U.S. to Mexico annually. Yet while anyone crossing that border with $10,000 or more in cash must declare it, prepaid cards are legally exempt. “Law enforcement loses lives all over the world trying to keep (major criminals) unbanked, and these prepaid cards are offering them a great alternative to sneak into our financial system,” said Tobon.
‘A whole new way of doing business’ Visually, the cards are barely distinguishable from credit or debit cards and the most versatile let users reload them remotely without having to reveal their identity, using cash, moneygrams, PayPal and other online payment services. Some cards can process tens of thousands of dollars a month. Just load them up in Connecticut or Texas with, say, the proceeds of cocaine sales and collect the cash in local currency from an ATM in Medellin, Colombia, or elsewhere in Latin America. “I’m not so sure we have a sophisticated understanding of how to deal with this,” said Richard Stana, who oversaw a report on prepaid access for the General Accounting Office, the U.S. Congress’ research arm. “It’s just a whole new way of doing business.” In one of the first cases to clue law enforcement to the threat, a Dallas-based company called Virtual Money Inc. provided the cards to crews who helped Colombian drug traffickers move at least $7 million to Medellin during three months in 2006, prosecutors say. The money moved digitally, as most legitimate capital travels

A reloadable prepaid Visa card. Such cards have become the preferred means of paying couriers who smuggle drugs across the U.S., authorities say. these days, but bypassed bank accounts, making its digital footprint harder to detect. Virtual Money allegedly violated U.S. banking law by not reporting transfers of above $10,000 or other activity suggesting illegal money movement. David Zapp, a New York attorney for a defendant sentenced to 45 months in prison in the case, said his client was a small player in a scheme in which cards he was aware of had relatively low load limits of $1,000.
Catching on The trick was volume — and the ability to replenish the cards. Some launderers probably had 400-500 cards, Zapp said. State and local police in the U.S. are only just waking up to the cards, so ICE created an explanatory pamphlet it is distributing far beyond Customs and Border Patrol agents. “We’re involved in a case much larger than Virtual Money,” said Paul Campo, chief of the DEA’s financial crimes unit. It is in the Southwest, he said, adding that the DEA also has active cases in New England and the state of Georgia. While offering more options to money launderers, prepaid cards also are changing the way ordinary law-abiding citizens and businesses and even governments handle money. Wal-Mart uses them to distribute payrolls, and U.S. government agencies to deliver benefits such as food assistance. Migrant workers use them to send money home. In the U.S. alone, an estimated $107 billion moved on branded prepaid cards last year, according to Aite Group, a financial research firm. Globally, the Boston Consulting Group forecasts, transactions with reloadable prepaid cards will reach $840 billion a year by 2017.

T S Mideast issues will loom over Obama’s trip to Europe
With Daniels out, GOP field takes clearer shape
By Mark Landler New York Times News Service
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama left behind a week filled with the strident passions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to fly to Europe on Sunday, where his first stop on a six-day tour is Ireland, another country once consumed by sectarian violence. Obama headed overseas late Sunday after speaking earlier in the day to a pro-Israel lobbying group that has expressed deep suspicions of his latest efforts to

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels’ decision not to run for president in 2012, while deflating the hopes of many in the Republican establishment, has helped solidify what has been a fluid GOP field and brings more clarity to the challenges ahead for each of the leading contenders. Daniels, who had been deliberating for more than a year, made his announcement around midnight Saturday. He joined a growing list of potential candidates who looked at the race and decided to take a pass. GOP strateIndiana’s gists say that Republican the removal Gov.

There are still a handful of possible candidates — among them, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota — who have not yet announced their intentions. And the dismay that some influential Republicans are feeling over Daniels’ refusal to run may well spark a renewal of their efforts to coax such conservative stars as ex-Florida governor Jeb Bush and current New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie into the race. On Sunday afternoon, Bush was getting entreaties by e-mail, one associate reported. On Sunday night, he released a statement saying: “While I am flattered by everyone’s encouragement, my decision has not changed. I will not be a candidate for president in 2012.” Those who are close to the Indiana governor say that he had wanted to run, if only to make sure that the issues of economic growth and fiscal discipline with which he has been so closely associated would get their due. But ultimately, he yielded to the opposition of his wife and four daughters. “Simply put, I find myself caught between two duties. I love my country; I love my family more,” Daniels wrote in an email to supporters.

Administration officials said they expected the president to discuss the NATO-led air campaign in Libya with Prime Minister David Cameron in their meeting on Tuesday. Britain and France have pressed the United States to take a larger role in the operation, according to diplomats, out of frustration that it has failed to dislodge the Libyan leader, Moammar Gadhafi.
Obama urges Israel to make ‘hard choices’ WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama struck back at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in a speech to a pro-Israel lobbying group on Sunday, defending his stance that talks over a Palestinian state should be focused on Israel’s pre-1967 borders and challenging Israel to “make the hard choices” necessary to
bring about a stable peace. Obama’s appearance beffore the American Israel Public Affairs Committee punctuated a tense week in which he and Netanyahu made their separate cases about Palestinian statehood to U.S. audiences.

A destroyed helicopter lies on its side in the parking lot of St, John’s Regional Medical Center in Joplin, Mo., on Sunday after a large tornado moved through much of the city, damaging the hospital and hundreds of homes and businesses and killing an untold number of people.
Tornado carves deadly path through southwest Missouri By Kurt Voigt The Associated Press
JOPLIN, Mo. — A massive tornado blasted its way across southwestern Missouri on Sunday, flattening several blocks of homes and businesses, smashing up cars and leaving an untold number of people dead. The storm that swept through Joplin left behind piles of brick and wood where homes and schools once stood. Cars were ripped apart and thrown on top of each other. A wrecked helicopter lay on its side in front of a damaged hospital. All that was left on one hillside was bare trees, stripped of their leaves and branches. The devastation was reminiscent of Tuscaloosa, Ala., last month, when a flurry of twisters killed more than 300 people across the South. Missouri authorities said they
N B Planned Parenthood cuts in legal spotlight
Chicago prepares for a warmer future
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is raising serious objections to a new Indiana law that cuts off state and federal money for Planned Parenthood clinics providing health care to low-income women on Medicaid. The objections set the stage for a clash between the White House and Gov. Mitch Daniels, a Republican, over an issue that ignites passions in both parties. The changes in Indiana are subject to federal review and approval, and administration officials have made it clear they will not approve the changes in the form adopted by the state.
CHICAGO — Chicago is getting ready for a wetter, steamier future. Concerned about the effect of global warming on the city’s infrastructure, officials in the Windy City have spent the past few years planning for changes that will be needed to adapt to the new conditions. Public alleyways are being repaved with materials that are permeable to water. The white oak, the state tree of Illinois, has been banned from planting lists, and swamp oaks and sweet gum trees from the South have been given new priority. — From wire reports

break the deadlock between the Israelis and Palestinians. The upheaval in the Middle East is likely to figure prominently throughout a trip that will also take him to Britain, France and Poland. But his 24 hours in Ireland will be a respite from geopolitics, allowing Obama to engage in a familiar ritual for American presidents: celebrating his Irish roots. He plans to drop by Moneygall, a hamlet where his great-great-great grandfather,
could confirm that people had died in Joplin, but the numbers were unknown late Sunday and police said they had stopped the search overnight. Details about the number of fatalities and injuries were difficult to obtain even for emergency management officials, because the tornado knocked out power, landline phones and some cellphone towers, said Greg Hickman, assistant emergency management director in Newton County. Triage centers and shelters were set up around the city of about 50,000 people about 160 miles south of Kansas City. At Memorial Hall, a downtown entertainment venue, nurses and other emergency workers from area hospitals were treating critically injured patients. Hundreds of windows were
blown out St. John’s Regional Medical Center, where a few moments’ notice gave staff time to hustle patients into hallways before the tornado struck. All were evacuated into the parking lot to be moved to other hospitals in the region. The same storm system spawned twisters along a broad swath of the Midwest, from Oklahoma to Wisconsin. At least one person was killed in Minneapolis. Emergency management officials rushed heavy equipment to Joplin to help lift debris and clear the way for search and recovery operations. Gov. Jay Nixon activated the National Guard and declared a state of emergency, and President Barack Obama said the Federal Emergency Management Agency was working with state and local agencies.
EL MIRAGE, Ariz. — The nation’s biggest banks and mortgage lenders have steadily amassed real estate empires, acquiring a glut of foreclosed homes that threatens to deepen the housing slump and create a further drag on the economic recovery. All told, they own more than 872,000 homes as a result of the groundswell in foreclosures, almost twice as many as when the financial crisis began in 2007, according to RealtyTrac, a real estate data provider. In addition, they are in the process of foreclosing on an additional 1 million homes and are poised to take possession of several million more in the years ahead. Five years after the housing market started teetering, economists now worry that the rise in lender-owned homes could create another vicious circle, in which the growing inventory of distressed property further depresses home values and
leads to even more distressed sales. With the spring homeselling season under way, real estate prices have been declining across the country in recent months. Overall, economists project that it would take about three years for lenders to sell their backlog of foreclosed homes. As a result, home values nationally could fall 5 percent by the end of 2011, according to Moody’s, and rise only modestly over the following year. Regions that were hardest hit by the housing collapse and recession could take even longer to recover. The reasons for the backlog range from inadequate staffs to delays imposed by the lenders because of investigations into the industry’s foreclosure practices. The pileup could lead to an estimated $40 billion in additional losses for banks and other lenders as they are forced to sell houses at steep discounts over the next two years, according to Trepp, a real estate research firm.

OLCC Continued from A1 For Conger, the anecdote demonstrates why he feels OLCC is ripe for change. His impetus is not the now-defunct home-brewing contest ban that OLCC enforced last year, the complaints from local Bend bar owners claiming overzealous enforcement, or even the OLCC’s failure to check references on Doitchin Krastev, the Bulgarian national, formerly based in Bend, who stole the identity of murdered Ohio boy Jason Evers to become the top liquor enforcement official for the eastern half of the state. Conger, rather, believes the state shouldn’t be in the liquor business at all. The fact that it is creates an inherent conflict of interest — and an unusual level of politics, he said. “It does not shock me to see that there’s that kind of cooperation,” Conger said of the e-mails between the lobbyist, Romain, and Pharo, the OLCC director. “I guess you could call it collusion ... OLCC is intimately involved with and influencing those industries. We’re getting what we asked for when the system was set up.” Upon being elected, Conger explored two bills intended to privatize the agency — in effect abolishing it. But he soon learned that the agency has a lot of friends, including those in the Legislature who appreciate what the OLCC does for the state. In the next two-year budget, liquor sales not only will support the $132 million OLCC budget, but they will also send $188 million to the state’s general fund, which pays for schools, prisons and social services. Liquor sales also provide more than $140 million to cities and counties. “The state receives a significant amount of revenue from OLCC,” Conger said. “So we’re put in a conflict because we need that revenue.” When Conger floated the idea of two bills to privatize the agency, he found that any such move would generate “a ton of opposition,” and “my odds of getting them through the Legislature probably approached zero,” he said. The opposition would come not just from lawmakers, the beverage industry and other interest groups, but also from groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, he said. As a result, Conger decided to take more time. “The business that OLCC operates is complicated enough that I felt it would be prudent to spend

some time studying the issue so that the legislation makes sense,” he said. Asked for an interview, Pharo agreed, then canceled a few hours before the scheduled time. OLCC spokeswoman Christie Scott indicated that the agency would accept only questions submitted by e-mail. Asked about the tension between enforcement and promoting the industry, she replied, “The OLCC’s main focus is public safety. Some may believe there is a tension, but it really is a balance between selling alcohol responsibly and helping Oregon businesses and the economy. A natural tension may exist due to the nature of the relationship. OLCC’s goal is to protect the public and make certain that everyone sells alcohol responsibly because alcohol is not an ordinary commodity.” Documents obtained under Oregon public records law over the past year shed more light on the politics around the OLCC, including the tension between OLCC’s role in promoting public safety and selling liquor. In April 2009, for instance, a government auditor interviewed Pharo and prepared a two-page summary portraying him as complaining about politics and having to cooperate so closely with lobbyists. When Pharo was asked about the greatest challenges faced by the OLCC, the auditor wrote, he called the Legislature’s involvement in the agency’s affairs “one of the main risks ... in that they do not really understand what the OLCC does and they are impacted by political whims.” The auditor’s summary noted that “The Legislature has put Steve and the OLCC in a difficult, and possibly unethical, position in that they are required to meet with lobbyists from the industry and liquor agents on a weekly basis to come up with strategies to aid with the economy ... The problem is that they are lobbyists and there is no compromise. Currently, Steve has to make (them) happy so they won’t go running to the Legislature.” Pharo, asked about the document last year, said that he did not recall calling the lobbyist meetings unethical and questioned
the auditor’s account of their conversation. Other documents suggest that OLCC inspectors feel the tension between selling liquor and regulating it affects how they are managed. A group of agents last spring pushed to beef up the agency’s public safety activities with a variety of suggestions that included separating its public safety function from the arm that handles the licensing of establishments. The inspectors’ priorities, forwarded to management by a supervisor, resulted in no changes. Nor are any of the inspectors’ proposals under consideration, Scott confirmed in an e-mail. She defended the agency’s record, saying that over the last year it’s prepared two YouTube videos to combat underage drinking and driving and over-service of alcohol. Moreover, the agency is trying to improve its education of servers and establishments, while setting up a new system to improve its consistency of enforcement — a frequent source of concern. In any event, the politics around OLCC appear unlikely to subside. When this year’s legislative session is over, Conger said he plans to learn more about how OLCC works and how alcohol is regulated in other states, most of which do not have liquor control agencies. Then he intends to pursue privatization in earnest. Meanwhile, the OLCC faces challenges from two former employees that could shed more light on the agency’s management. Mike Miliucci, a former OLCC licensing manager, is appealing a lower court ruling against him in a case alleging he was retaliated for blowing the whistle on the failure of multimillion-dollar computerized licensing and enforcement tracking system. Court exhibits and testimony indicated that OLCC director Pharo feared that Miliucci’s efforts to raise the alarm about the project’s problems would call attention to the OLCC. The state pulled the plug on the project in March 2008, nine months after Miliucci was fired. However, the OLCC claimed he
was fired for an overbearing management style, not his efforts to raise questions about the project. Meanwhile, earlier this month, a former Eugene-based OLCC inspector, Mark Lokietz, filed a complaint with the state Bureau of Labor and Industries, claiming that he was fired because he raised concerns about “poor management” at the agency. According to his complaint, in June 2010 Pharo told him to stop sending e-mails bearing his concerns because Pharo was concerned “the press” would get ahold of them, and he’d had “negative press” lately. Asked whether this statement referred to a June 20, 2010 article in The Bulletin about a scathing audit about the OLCC’s licensing division, Lokietz declined to comment. Lokietz’s allegation appeared to be echoed in an OLCC document summarizing a July 1, 2010 managers’ meeting, in a section titled “Learning from our Challenges.” It said, “The next internal audit could be focused on enforcement. All staff need to follow all policies and procedures. Perhaps during monthly regional meetings, policies could be addressed — one each month. We also need to ... use less e-mails and paper communication as our main form of communication. One on one communication may be more effective by phone or in person.” Told this, Conger said the documents concerned him. “It suggests that they have something to hide and that’s not appropriate. It’s a public agency.” Scott, the OLCC spokeswoman, declined to comment directly on Lokietz’s allegation. But she e-mailed that Pharo, asked whether he had discouraged any employees from sending emails, responded simply “no.” Later, she added that while Pharo “feels e-mail is a valuable tool, the face-to-face/interpersonal communication is his preferred method of interaction. Emails and written communications are useful, however, they are static words. Steve feels that the most effective way to communicate with someone is to sit down with him or her person-toperson to build on the inflection and tone of the conversation.” Nick Budnick can be reached at 503-566-2839 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EU opens office in rebels’ stronghold New York Times News Service BENGHAZI, Libya — Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, visited Benghazi on Sunday, providing support and a burst of confidence to Moammar Gadhafi’s opponents, who said the high-profile trip was evidence of growing international recognition for their cause. That Ashton, who traveled to the rebel stronghold to officially open an EU diplomatic office, was not able to provide formal recognition for the rebels’ governing body, the Transitional National Council, did not seem
Redmond Continued from A1 “When people are trying to sell land, that extension is valuable,” High said. “If you have to start over from scratch, it really drives the value down.” In other cases, developers just don’t want to start the entire process over and risk losing thousands of dollars already invested in a project. Community Presbyterian in Redmond is one such case. The church planned a multipurpose building before the recession hit and has spent about $25,000 to design the building, according to Bruce Smith, an elder with the church. Smith has pushed the city for the extension. “If we had to reapply and go through that thing again, I don’t know how much it would cost us,” Smith said. The extension will cost Redmond something, though
to bother the rebels. Recognition, she pointed out, was up to the 27 countries in the union, but she said that Europe recognized the council as an “interlocutor.” “These are the people with whom we have a strong dialogue,” she said. Meanwhile, NATO warplanes attacked another Libyan warship early Sunday as part of a series of overnight airstrikes that also bombed two tanks in western Libya and an administrative barracks that military officials said was being used as a command-and-control site to direct fire against Libyan civilians.
Richards said the amount was difficult to estimate. Allowing the extension means developers will not have to pay the extension fee of about $850. But without the extension, many of those projects could just die. “We’re not in a position where we want to make money off that,” Richards said. “We’re in a position where we want to collaborate and do what we can (to help development).” Patrick Cliff can be reached at 541-633-2161 or at email@example.com.

Minnesotans bracing for a lengthy, emotional debate on gay marriage By Patrick Condon The Associated Press
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota has a long and potentially polarizing campaign in store after state lawmakers agreed to allow voters to decide whether to limit civil marriage to heterosexual couples — a prohibition that already exists in state law. The House voted 70-63 just before midnight Saturday after nearly six hours of emotional debate that raised many of the issues likely to resonate in the coming campaign. Critics of the amendment said it would divide families and neighbors and harm the dignity of gay people, while its supporters said the definition of marriage is important enough that
voters alone — not judges or legislators — should decide how it’s addressed in the constitution. The vote split mostly along party lines, with Republicans in support and Democrats opposed. Four Republicans crossed over to vote ‘no,’ and two Democrats voted ‘yes.’ The statewide vote itself is nearly a year and a half off, an unusually long lead time for both supporters and opponents to organize, raise money and try to sway Minnesotans. Both sides were already laying plans for respective coalitions for and against the amendment, with supporters calling themselves “Minnesota for Marriage” and opponents gathering under the banner of a group
called “Minnesotans United for All Families.” Gay rights activists said they believe public opinion about gay relationships is quickly shifting in their favor and that the next 18 months would give them time to reach a lot of voters with a message that gay relationships don’t threaten other families. “This isn’t necessarily a case you can make to people in a soundbite,” said Monica Meyer, executive director of the gay rights group OutFront Minnesota. “But if you have the chance to sit down with someone and explain to them that this hurts real families and doesn’t help anyone, that’s how you win people over.”

Family Continued from A1 Next to her is teenaged Jessica Gray, “who is old enough,” according to her father, Jonathan. She has on a cowboy hat that the wind keeps blowing off, a long denim skirt, a sequined denim vest and cowboy boots. She’s packing a pistol and binoculars. This is one stubborn side of what has been called America’s longest-running standoff with law enforcement. But it’s been a single-sided siege. Henderson County authorities have pointedly ignored the would-be war.
A ’self-imposed prison’ For more than 11 years, John Joe Gray and his country clan have been holed up inside their own private prison, a 47-acre strip of Trinity River bottomland about 100 miles southeast of Fort Worth in Henderson County. They’ve scraped out a harsh life here ever since Gray was bailed out of jail in January 2000 after he was charged with assaulting a state trooper on Christmas Eve 1999. During a traffic stop, Gray and the driver of the car told two Department of Public Safety troopers that they were armed. When ordered to get out, the driver did but Gray wouldn’t budge. One trooper pushed Gray out, and he then lunged for the other officer’s sidearm. Gray bit the trooper as they struggled for control of the weapon, according to investigators. “Somehow his hand did end up in my mouth and I did bite him,”
Gray told the Star-Telegram in September 2000. An Anderson County grand jury indicted him on two felony counts—assaulting a public servant and taking a peace officer’s weapon. “We’re here because two highway patrolmen lied about what happened,” Gray said last week. “Land of the free and home of the brave? That’s a bunch of bull.” He has refused to be taken alive and in a long-ago letter to authorities, the family warned officials to “bring extra body bags,” if they come for him. Authorities kept tabs on the compound for months but haven’t maintained an active presence for years. “We fear no man,” John Joe Gray maintains. “We believe in an eye for an eye and a bullet for a bullet.” But nobody’s storming the gate. Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt, who is the fourth lawman in the post since 2000, says, like his predecessors, that he’s not willing to risk a gunbattle just to arrest Gray. Nutt, a former Texas Ranger, said his policy is to no longer talk about Gray, because the fugitive-in-plain-sight only wants attention. But then the sheriff speaks his mind. “John Joe Gray is not worth it. Ten of him is not worth going up there and getting one of my young deputies killed,” he said. “He assaulted a state trooper and it’s an Anderson County warrant. They have caused us no problems. They are in their own self-imposed prison,” he said. “Unless he does something to cause us to react, he can stay there.”
Cheerleading Continued from A1 They feared that calling it a sport sent the wrong message to women — endorsing an embarrassing holdover from a time when girls in tight-fitting outfits were expected to do little more than yell support for boys. Those women were also skeptical of high schools and universities that counted female cheerleaders as athletes as a way to evade their obligation to provide opportunities for women in more traditional sports, like softball and soccer. But other women bristled at what felt like an insult. Why should cheerleading not be considered a sport when it required a complex set of technical skills, physical fitness and real guts? Now, in a development that may settle the debate, two groups are asking the NCAA to recognize a new version of cheerleading as an “emerging sport” for women, a precursor to full status as a championship sport. If successful, dozens of athletic programs could begin to fully finance cheerleading teams, recruit scholarship athletes and send them to a national championship.
Larger implications The implications go beyond giving cheerleading a stamp of legitimacy. If this more athletic form of cheerleading — technically known as competitive cheer — evolves into a sport with rigorous competitions and standards, college athletics programs will be able to count the new teams for the purposes of complying with Title IX, the federal law banning gender discrimination in education. The development could provide relief to institutions that have struggled to show they are offering enough opportunities for women, who make up 53 percent of students at Division I institutions, but just 46 percent of all athletes. Several women’s sports advocates now support the idea. “As long as it’s actually operating as a sport, we welcome it into the women’s sports tent,” said Nancy Hogshead-Makar, the senior director of advocacy at the Women’s Sports Foundation. Like gymnastics or figure skating, she said, “this is another aesthetic sport that if done right could provide lots more girls with legitimate sports experiences.” Yet even as the idea has been met with enthusiasm, a fight has broken out between two groups competing to have their vision approved by the NCAA. Each of the proposals calls for athletic displays that incorporate elements of traditional cheerleading, like flips and pyramids, but the groups differ over how to administer and run the new sport. One group, USA Cheer, is backed by Varsity Brands, a forprofit company that sells pompoms and uniforms and has been running competitions for high school and college cheerleaders for decades. The other group is the National Collegiate Athlet-

John Joe Gray holds a copy of the Quran he was preparing to burn with his granddaughter, Jessica, left, and daughter, Ruth, at the family compound in Henderson County, Texas. What’s sad, Nutt said, are the lives of the children behind the barbed wire. “That’s part of our judgment. If we confront them and get in a major shootout, we could injure those kids. It’s scary to think about those children living like that.”
Primitive conditions The hardscrabble compound has no phone, no refrigeration, no power. Contact with the outside world is through a handful of “supporters” and via shortwave radio, John Joe Gray said. Drinking water comes from springs, and Gray and his sons say they subsist by growing beans, potatoes, corn, squash,

Members of the Georgia Southern University Stunt Team perform at a Stunt Championship in Daytona Beach, Fla. ics and Tumbling Association, which comprises six universities that have been competing against one another for the last couple of years and have the support of USA Gymnastics.
An emerging sport? The effort to get cheerleading declared an emerging sport began in earnest last July after a federal judge ruled that Quinnipiac University’s competitive cheerleading team did not meet Title IX guidelines for being counted as a sport. The judge, Stefan Underhill of the U.S. District Court in Bridgeport, found that Quinnipiac’s team did not qualify because the team and its participants were not treated the same as other varsity athletes on campus. Athletes were recruited from among the student body, there was no playoff system, and the teams sometimes competed against high school squads. Both groups say their versions of cheerleading have addressed those concerns, and will eventually allow programs to legitimately count cheerleaders as athletes. “It’s unique to have in essence a sport being developed out of whole cloth,” said Karen Morrison, who oversees the emerging sport process for the NCAA. “Historically, cheerleading has been about supporting athletes, not about being an athlete,” said Barbara Osborne, a scholarship basketball player who graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in 1982 and who now advises universities on gender-equity issues. It did not help that some high schools and universities had tried to count standard sideline cheerleaders as athletes as a way to avoid being penalized for failing to deliver opportunities for women in more authentic sports.
The two proposals being considered by the NCAA share many similarities: The competitions themselves are longer and more standardized than in the past, athletes now wear uniforms more akin to those of volleyball players, and they no longer rally the crowd for another team. However, they differ in other ways, like how to score the events and how many competitions to stage in any given season. The proposal being advanced by the handful of universities calls the new sport acrobatics and tumbling and uses a scoring system similar to gymnastics, with points based on degree of difficulty. The format backed by USA Cheer is called stunt and competes in a head-tohead format, with the competition divided into quarters. One important distinction is the size of the teams. The proposal for acrobatics and tumbling, which was submitted to the NCAA late last year, imagines that an average squad size will number from 32 to 36 athletes, with a maximum of 12 scholarships. The proposal for stunt envisions a squad of 20 to 30, with a maximum of 24 scholarships.
tomatoes and peppers on fields they plow with donkeys. They can vegetables and dry meat to get through the year, they said. They also raise goats and chickens and catch catfish, carp and drum from the Trinity and hunt deer on the wooded property. Friends bring them staples they can’t produce themselves. Last year, they harvested their first crop of peaches. “We survive on faith. We’ve never gone a day without a meal,” Gray said with pride. And they never leave, he said. He refuses to say how many people live there or to answer most questions about their life.
THE BULLETIN • Monday, May 23, 2011 A5 But he will say that when someone is injured from chopping wood or laboring over crops, his wife, Alicia, “sews them up.” One supporter, who frequently visits the farm, said eight children are inside the compound. The kids are armed at an early age, she said. They are equally adept at reciting the Constitution or Scripture. “It’s sort of Wild West. It’s what a traditional American family looked like 100 years ago,” said Dolores McCarter of Arlington, who operates a small nonprofit called Dee’s House that helps battered women and children. “They are obedient to God’s Scripture. They just have a little disagreement with the politics of this nation,” said McCarter, who wore a holstered pistol while she visited last week. In a later phone interview, she gave more details about the clan and its frontier existence and Old Testament mindset. “John is standing as a free man. He loves his family. They are prepared to live out their lives there,” McCarter said. “Some people pity them and they . . . pity us.” John Joe Gray said he was a general contractor in nearby Seven Pines, and Jonathan worked with him as a carpenter. The group has constructed five homes to house each of the families in the compound, McCarter said.
Seeking the spotlight Over the years, the media attention has waned as law enforcement ignored the compound
and John Joe Gray stayed out of sight, no longer spewing his dark rants about government tyranny or the pervasive influence of the Masons. But Gray, once linked to Texas militia groups, apparently yearns for another spin in the spotlight. Through McCarter, he contacted the Star-Telegram with an invitation to “something crazy”—he was going to burn the Quran. And maybe, just maybe, he would allow a reporter and photographer to come inside his secret world. After nearly two hours of strained conversation with a reporter and photographer, a clearly disappointed Gray finally gave up waiting for a TV satellite truck and sent his granddaughter to fetch a can of kerosene and the book. Squatting on a dirt track of his driveway, he doused the paperback with fuel and struck a match. And the wind blew it out, again and again. After soaking it with more fuel and propping it open with sticks, the paperback finally ignited. Why burn it? Why now? “When a jihad takes place in this country, you’ll know why,” Gray said, turning to go. But with burning pages blowing in the weeds, the family reversed field and snatched up the blackened scraps. “See, we pick up our trash,” John Joe Gray said before marching away. Jonathan Gray stayed behind, a solitary sentinel, watching and waiting — and seemingly prepared to do so for the rest of his life.

Dozens killed as wave of bombings hits Baghdad
As tension grows, Yemeni leader again balks at leaving
ICELAND VOLCANO CLOSES AIRPORTS
The Washington Post BAGHDAD, Iraq — In an unusual spate of violence targeting Iraq’s capital, Baghdad was hit with a wave of bombings Sunday that killed more than a dozen people and left scores injured when numerous explosions rocked nearly every corner of the city. The sheer number of attacks, which come as overall violence in Iraq has been on the decline, raises further questions about what awaits Baghdad as U.S. troops prepare to withdrawal by the end of the year. According to security officials, the city was hit at least seven deadly explosions between 8 a.m and 9:30 a.m., many of which appeared aimed at police officers or government officials. The most serious incident occurred in Baghdad’s Tajji District in the northern part of the city after a booby-trapped car exploded near a U.S. Army convoy, according to a Ministry of Interior spokesman. It was not immediately known whether any U.S. troops were wounded in the blast.

Smoke plumes from the Grimsvotn volcano, which lies under the Vatnajokull glacier, about 120 miles east of the capital, Rejkjavik. Iceland’s four international airports were closed to most flights Sunday as the volcano erupted for a second day, sending billows of ash 12 miles into the atmosphere, aviation and meteorological officials said. The prevailing winds were expected to blow ash west all week, meteorologists said. Officials did not expect a repeat of the widespread
disruption of European air traffic in May and April of last year, when an eruption at another Icelandic volcano grounded more than 100,000 flights. But in a conference call with weather experts and officials responsible for European airspace, airlines were told that if the current weather patterns persisted, ash could reach northern Scotland by midday Tuesday and other parts of Britain, as well as France and Spain by Thursday or Friday, said a spokeswoman for Eurocontrol, the agency that coordinates European air traffic.
Sudanese army invades contested town on southern border New York Times News Service NAIROBI, Kenya — The Sudanese army invaded the flashpoint border town of Abyei over the weekend, alarming Western and U.N. diplomats who warned Sunday that it was a provocative act that risked all-out war with the southern Sudanese. The unresolved status of Abyei, an ethnically mixed, oil-producing area
that straddles northern and southern Sudan and is claimed by both sides, has been the thorniest issue confronting Sudan as it prepares to break into two in July. Southern Sudanese fought for independence for decades, and in January, they voted by nearly 99 percent in an internationally backed referendum to split off from the north. After an air campaign on Friday,

Afghan soldiers run to surround a police building after it was attacked by insurgents in Khost, eastern Afghanistan, on Sunday.
6 die as Afghan police compound is attacked KABUL, Afghanistan — Insurgents wearing police uniforms and vests laced with explosives stormed a police compound in eastern Afghanistan early Sunday morning, engaging in a firefight that lasted several hours before Afghan and NATO security forces regained control of the complex, government officials said. The attack occurred in Khost, a volatile province bordering the tribal areas of Pakistan that have served as a haven for militants crossing into Afghanistan. Three police officers and two Afghan National Army soldiers were killed in the dawn attack, which occurred about dawn. A civilian who was also walking by the compound was also wounded and died at the hospital, officials said.
Pakistani naval base stormed by militants KARACHI, Pakistan — Islamist militants stormed a naval base in the Pakistani city of Karachi late Sunday, destroying two U.S.-supplied surveillance aircraft, firing rockets and battling commandos sent to subdue them in one of the most brazen attacks in years, officials said. At least four navy personnel and a paramilitary Ranger were killed and 11 security forces were wounded in fighting at the Naval Station Mehran that was still ongoing this morning, navy spokesman Irfan ul Haq said. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was part of their revenge for the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Between 10 and 15 at-
tackers entered the facility before splitting into smaller groups, setting off explosions and hiding in the sprawling base, Haq said.
Spain’s Socialists trounced in election MADRID — Spain’s ruling Socialists suffered a crushing defeat to conservatives in local and regional elections Sunday against a backdrop of staggering unemployment and unprecedented sit-ins by Spaniards furious with what they see as politicians who don’t care about their plight. In what Spanish media said was the worst performance on record by the Socialist Party in local and regional elections, the conservative Popular Party won at the municipal level by about two million votes, compared to 150,000 in its win in 2007, and in 13 regional governments that were up for grabs, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero’s party lost in virtually all of them.
Georgia’s president urged to step down MOSCOW — Police clashed with anti-government protesters in Georgia on Sunday, at one point firing tear gas and rubber bullets, as hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the capital of the former Soviet republic to demand the ouster of President Mikheil Saakashvili. About 2,000 people attended the rally, officials said, small by Georgian standards. They accused Saakashvili of stifling pro-Western democratic reforms promised when he came to power in 2003, and expressed anger at continuing poverty and unemployment. — From wire reports
northern ground forces staged a fullscale invasion of Abyei on Saturday night, with thousands of soldiers, booming artillery and dozens of tanks sweeping in from several directions. Southern Sudan called the invasion “a declaration of war.” “We will respond in self-defense,” warned Benjamin Marial, information minister for the south’s semi-autono-
mous government. “If not de-escalated, this could be the shot heard round Sudan,” said John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, which helped set up a satellite monitoring program that showed, over the past few weeks, a steady build up of military forces around Abyei. “On July 9, the Republic of South Sudan could be born in a state of war.”
SANAA, Yemen — Armed with guns, knives and swords, supporters of Yemen’s leader trapped U.S., European and Arab ambassadors at a diplomatic mission in new turmoil that swept across the capital Sunday as the president refused to sign an agreement calling for him to step down in 30 days. Security forces broke up the crowd after several hours of letting them besiege the embassy. But President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s balking at the U.S.-backed deal threatened to wreck hopes for a peaceful resolution to the chaos that has consumed this key Arab nation, where hundreds of thousands have protested for three months, defying a bloody crackdown, to demand his ouster. If the mediation collapses, many fear further deterioration of the political situation, includ- Yemeni ing an escalation of armed con- President flict between Saleh’s loyalists Ali Abdullah and military units that have Saleh joined the opposition. At nightfall Sunday, tensions were high in Sanaa, the capital. Pro-government gunmen and soldiers locked down main streets around the capital with roadblocks, while tens of thousands of anti-Saleh demonstrators were massed at their protest camp in a central Sanaa square, worried that a new crackdown could ensue. Saleh refused twice before to sign the agreement. But this weekend it had appeared he was relenting, under pressure from his allies, the U.S. and Gulf Arab countries that mediated the accord. The opposition parties signed the accord on Saturday, and the Yemeni president grudgingly promised he would sign the following day. Instead, the mercurial leader showed his determination to cling to the power he has held for 32 years, despite increasing isolation. His regime unleashed hundreds of armed loyalists into the streets of Sanaa in an apparently orchestrated campaign to demand he not step down. They demonstrated outside several embassies and blocked the road in front of the presidential palace, chanting, “We will not permit the president’s ouster.”

2 take lead for Crook school board

Rivals collide in one redistricting scenario • Posted Wednesday by Nick Budnick A Democratic-leaning blogger recently noted, among other things, that the Democrats’ redistricting plan would put Rep. Bill Kennemer, R-Oregon City, in the same district as Democratic leader Dave Hunt, D-Clackamas (at left, top to bottom). What went unmentioned, however, is the history between the men. If that pairing holds true as redistricting gets approved, it could match up Hunt with one of his most vocal critics in the 2012 election. In 2010, Kennemer was one of the only lawmakers to speak publicly about former House Speaker Hunt’s hardball politics in the wake of the bitter tax measure campaign. And this year, Kennemer took to the House floor three times to publicly attack Hunt, citing what he considered dirty campaigning — a charge that Kennemer’s 2010 opponent, Alice Norris, depicted as hypocritical. If Hunt and Kennemer remain in the same district and run for re-election, it could make for some dramatic political theater.

nary, but Jess Messner and Rich Mires appear likely to win fouryear terms on the board. Messner leads for the seat representing the district’s southwest zone with 83 of the total 301 write-in votes cast. Messner, an insurance agent living in Powell Butte, is a new
name to the school board race and said he became interested after no one filed for the position representing his area. “I asked for people’s votes just amongst my neighbors and friends,” Messner said. “It’s great news to hear I’m winning. I’m very anxious and very excited to
serve on the board.” Messner has a history with both politics and education. He is the current vice-chairman of the Crook County Republicans and was a teacher in Glide for three years before moving to the area. See Crook / B2

IN BRIEF Gray skies and rain expected this week The gray skies from the weekend will probably stick around most of this week, and Central Oregonians should prepare for more rain in the coming days. Today could bring the heaviest showers, but most days this week carry some chance of rain, according to Rob Brooks, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Pendleton. Today’s rain should be followed with the week’s sunniest day. On Tuesday, highs could reach the mid-60s, and partly sunny skies are likely. Each day for the rest of the week has a chance for periodic rain showers, though no major storms are expected. “It’ll be spotty weather,” Brooks said. Nighttime lows are expected to fall to the mid-30s throughout the week. From Wednesday on, daytime highs will likely peak in the high 50s, according to the forecast. The damp weather pattern is predicted to carry into the Memorial Day weekend. “It just looks like you’re going to get some unstable moisture and some showers,” Brooks said. “That’s one of the fun things about living near the mountains.” — From staff reports

• Posted Thursday by Lauren Dake On the same day lawmakers debated the future of the state’s Medical Marijuana Act, the Oregon Supreme Court ruled that county sheriffs can’t deny medical marijuana users concealed handgun permits. Attorney Leland Berger, who represented the medical marijuana users at the court, testified Thursday. He told lawmakers their proposed changes to the act should be reconsidered. “Please kill this bill,” he said. “This is a bill that shouldn’t go anywhere.” House Bill 3664 would give Oregon State Police a database of medical marijuana growers. It also would limit the number of people growers can provide medical cannabis to, from four to two. Voters created the medical marijuana program in 1998. There are two newly established cannabis clubs in Bend, the Central Oregon Alternative Therapy Club and the Herb Center.

Family remembers a well-liked Westlund • Posted Tuesday by Lauren Dake Last week, a bill to honor longtime lawmaker and former state treasurer Ben Westlund, who died in 2010 of cancer, passed the Senate. Lawmakers packed the governor’s ceremonial office, taking turns speaking to Westlund’s family. Both of his children said it reaffirmed what they had always been told about their father: that he was well-liked. His wife, Libby, said Westlund knew lobbyists, staffers, interns. He talked to the custodians and the officers, too. She said he was also a jokester. He became friends with the electrician and once rewired the voting buttons on the floor — switching “no” votes to “yes.” Libby broke into tears when she thanked everyone for coming. “He loved working with all of you, even when you disagreed with him.” She prompted a laugh when she followed with, “even though, of course, you were wrong.”

Crook Continued from B1 Messner also said that with two young children and a third due in June, he has recently taken an interest in the state of education in the area. “Prineville is among the highest for foreclosure rates in the nation, and unemployment is among the highest in the country,” he said. “Revenue is down and there are some hard decisions being made, but I want to help make decisions that put the
kids’ education first.” Rich Mires, representing the southeast section of the county, leads the write-in count with 104 of the 332 write-in votes cast. Mires is a current member of the school board and said he didn’t file for candidacy because he couldn’t commit to a full fouryear term. Mires was unavailable for comment. Before the election, he told The Bulletin, “There are a number of people who want me to stay on (the board), and I guess since no one has stepped forward I would probably accept
C OV ER S T OR I ES the position for a period of time.” Trisha Shrum, elections manager for Crook County, said the election will be finalized Friday, and final election results will be turned over to the Crook County School Board after that. Once the board has reviewed the results, the Crook County Clerk’s Office will notify the winners. If a candidate turns down an appointment, the board will appoint someone.

Returned Continued from B1 “The French haven’t always been endeared to U.S. tourists,” said the retired air traffic controller and experienced traveller. “I just thought it was really neat someone would send this.” In the Paris airport, he’d been in a rush to transfer to another terminal. After clearing customs, Meador stuffed the envelope into a pocket of his backpack, forgetting to pull the zipper. Meador doesn’t know what happened after that. Someone may have pulled the envelope out, or — more innocently — the envelope could have fallen out of the pocket. When he lost the package, Meador was on his way to a tour of the Adriatic Sea. The 73-yearold shrugged off the loss, as a he had his passport with him and a friend loaned him some cash. He says the trip was wonderful. “I totally forgot about this,” Meador said. “It’s just one of those things that happens.” On his return trip, Meador changed flights at de Gaulle again. He stopped by the air-

He has been the adviser of the Bend chapter of FFA the past four years and has turned the program into a force. In recent years, the Bend chapter has expanded to offer students opportunities in leadership, community service, public speaking, marketing and business.

Work on Knights’ next gift to UO will begin in June The Associated Press EUGENE — Work is scheduled to begin next month on a new athletics administration building at the University of Oregon. The project includes new football practice fields and a new stadium for women’s soccer and lacrosse. The project is expected to create hundreds of construction jobs. However, The Eugene Register-Guard reports that work on the new facilities will cut back on tailgating space. More than 750 parking spaces will be lost during the two-year construction period. The number will drop to about 550 spaces once the job is complete. UO Athletics Director Rob Mullens said that with the demand for reserved parking and other expected changes, the reduction in spaces likely will mean the end of general admission parking for football games. The first phase of construction is expected to begin in June when the athletics department begins moving underground utility lines from the construction area. In August, construction crews will mobilize on the site. The new building will wrap around the north and west sides of the existing
Police await autopsy findings in falling death The Associated Press PORTLAND — Portland police say a person has died after apparently falling from a downtown parking garage Sunday afternoon. Sgt. Pete Simpson says there’s no indication of foul play, but it’s unclear whether the person fell or jumped. He says the parking garage is 10 stories tall, but police aren’t sure on which level the person was standing. He says the person initially hit the hood and windshield of a parked car before landing on the sidewalk. He says the medical examiner will determine the person’s gender and cause of death. Police got a report around 2:30 p.m. that someone was down on the sidewalk near Southwest 6th Avenue and Washington Street. Medical personnel found the person dead when they arrived.
Casanova Center and provide a new home for football program staff. The building is projected at 130,000 square feet and will rise to six stories in some places. Three new football practice fields — two synthetic and one grass — will displace the existing Papé Field, where soccer and lacrosse teams play. A new field, along with stands, locker rooms and offices, will be built in what is now parking on the east side of Autzen Stadium. The work is being paid for by Phil and Penny Knight, major supporters of the athletics program. Phil Knight is the chairman of Nike Inc., and a UO alumnus. The project will be managed much like the Jaqua Academic Center for Student Athletes. That also was a gift from the Knights and built by companies they hired and supervised. The cost of the center was never announced. As with the Jaqua Center, Knight is leasing the property for the new football building and soccer/lacrosse stadium and will build the new facilities as a private project. Once complete, he will present them to the UO as a gift. The athletics department will pay to move utility lines under the projects so the sites are ready to build. Mullens said that could cost up to $3 million, money that will come out of the athletics budget.

A fun place to take some medication Portland pot bar offers karaoke, comedy and free medicinal weed By Nigel Duara The Associated Press
PORTLAND — Lights dim. A white-haired man of perhaps 50 approaches the stage. He’s wearing a blue suit jacket, openneck shirt, black leather loafers and sunglasses. He’s got the Sinatra panache down. Then, the voice, a rich baritone, sweeps over the audience of a couple dozen glazed and grinning pot smokers. “Day and night, night and daaaaay,” he croons the Sinatra standard into a mic in his right hand. “Only you beneath the moon or under the sun, whether near to me or far, it’s no matter darling where you are. “Dum dum, dum dum de-doo-dee-dum.” The audience yelps and coos in appreciation. This is karaoke night at Portland’s Cannabis Café, a combination of the bar from “Cheers” and a street-side pot palace in Amsterdam. It is perfectly legal in this smoky room for medical marijuana patients to burn, eat, rub, filter and roll marijuana. There are cancer patients, AIDS patients and sufferers of smashed vertebrae and pinched nerves. There are also those who find refuge under Oregon’s “severe pain” allowance — tell a marijuana-friendly doctor you’ve got pain, and you’ve pretty much got weed. Since the medical marijuana law’s passage in 1998, nearly 40,000 patients have gotten access.
No pot for sale The pot in the cafe is brought in by patients or donated by growers. Money doesn’t change hands unless it’s to buy a sandwich or coffee. The price of admission: a $20 monthly charge and a $5 door fee. The cafe has a farmers market of donated weed-laden goodies, a weekly comedy show and even an employees’ night. On Thursdays, it’s karaoke. Stage lights catch an occasional cloud of puffy white smoke blown from a pipe, bong or vaporizer. The Sinatra crooner, unlike many tonight, has got the goods. The rest of the evening will be spent alternatively cringing and clapping at the cluster of medical marijuana users who make it their business to be at the café when karaoke kicks off at 7 p.m. From table to table, the stories pour out of them. Most declined to give their names to The Associated Press. Teresa Sheffer was hit by a train while driving in Alto, Mich. It broke every major bone

Cindy McGraw, who leads a statewide online charter school parent group, said families are paying the price for legislators’ inaction. “I think we started making headway, but it’s been tough,” she said. Parents say they want clear answers and direction from state leaders on what charters school will look like in Oregon. “The political polarization has only marginalized the thousands of kids, parents and teachers who are working in those schools,” said Kaaren Heikes, executive director of the Northwest Center for Education Options, which represents most of the state’s 108 charter schools. But charter school policy issues are likely to take a back seat, as lawmakers begin hashing out details of the state budget. Lawmakers need to stay focused on education funding and equipping schools with the freedom, training and tools they need to reach kids, said Chuck Bennett, government relations director of the Confederation of Oregon School Administrators. “We’ve got huge issues to address in public education,” Bennett said. “Charter schools is not one of them.”

Café owner Madeline Martinez holds a vaporizer bag, filled with marijuana smoke, at the Cannabis Café in Portland.
“This is much more relaxed. And stoners are way better karaoke singers than drinkers anyway.” — Melody Reid, thyroid cancer patient on her right side and left her with damage to her spine. Now her pain sometimes gets so severe it forces her to huddle in her house, alone. Sitting six paces from the stage with a pipe in front of her and a thick pinch of locally grown pot packed into her friend’s bong, she’s relaxed. If there is a point to the Cannabis Café, it is to give people who smoke pot a place to do it together. “It’s a family here,” Sheffer said. “You see other people with the same problems, but it’s not a hospital. It’s a reason to get out of the house so you’re not just a hermit in the dark with pain pills.” To Sheffer, smoking marijuana softens the dull aches and sharp pangs of pain she still experiences. Others enduring chemotherapy say it alleviates their nausea. Marijuana at the Cannabis Café is a sleep aid, an appetite stimulator and a headache reliever. Toward the back of the café on a couch dug into a little nook under a billiard lamp, Joe Winn, 30, leans into a bong, takes a drag, holds it and exhales. He volunteers and likes the crush of activity when people stream in. Three feet away, a man who would only be identified as “Redeye” hauls out a 6-foot plastic bong he nicknamed “The Staleblazer,” a play on Portland’s NBA team and the stale smoke that accumulates from the water chamber to mouthpiece. A few minutes later, he’s up on stage, doing a muddled rendition of Sublime’s “Two Joints.” His thick, red dreadlocks bounce off his back, giving the impression of a Rastafarian leprechaun doll being shaken by a child. He, like everyone who performs, gets the crowd’s “wooo!” of approval. The café doesn’t need any
special license to operate. The impetus for starting the café was President Barack Obama’s 2009 pledge to soften the federal stance on medical marijuana. A year ago, owner Madeline Martinez brought in a pair of local police officers to tour the café as a sign that the place was more than a marijuana speakeasy. She said they were polite. The place isn’t turning a profit yet. Martinez thinks that within a few years, Oregon will legalize a drug that already enjoys near-legal status and that’s when the real money will roll in. Think of it, she says: Movie theaters, bars, hotels and, maybe, a taxi service, all catering to marijuana smokers. For now, it’s all donated weed and free music and a prominent budget deficit for the state of Oregon — $3.5 billion in all — that Martinez insists could be ameliorated by the sale and taxation of cannabis.
Not much different than the average bar The mindset at the café is a blend of avid horticulture, sharing-is-caring communalism and good old-fashioned West Coast anti-authoritarianism. It is also, however, just a karaoke club in the Pacific Northwest. Replace the bongs and pipes with martini stems and Tom Collins glasses and it would be nearly indistinguishable from any other bar. “Coming up on stage, we’ve got our own Supremes. Come on up here ladies,” an emcee laughs into the microphone. A minute later, he is replaced on stage by three women their 50s, each in a feather boa, singing 1964’s “Baby Love.” Melody Reid, one of the few in the café who chose not to sing, says she would frequent bars in her younger days before thyroid cancer and a gastric pacemaker, and that she grew tired of the constant pick-up attempts by stumbling drunks. “I’ve been to bars, had them just crawling all over you,” she says with a laugh, between pulls off a petite green pipe. “This is much more relaxed. “And stoners,” she says, “are way better karaoke singers than drinkers anyway.”

Time to tame the PERS beast
hen your family is going broke, you do something about it. Oregon, your family is going broke. It’s time to do something about it. Gov. John Kitzhaber and the Legislature have been looking at ways to deal with many of Oregon’s immediate and future budget shortfalls. They have left virtually untouched the state employee retirement system called PERS. The City Club of Portland last week added its voice to the growing concern about PERS. How bad is the burden? We’ve used the example of PERS costs for the Bend-La Pine schools before, but it illustrates the point well. $5.8 million. That’s how much more the Bend district must spend on PERS in 2011-2013. If PERS were a beast, it would be rampaging through the streets of Bend plucking teachers, destroying classrooms, eating books. Meanwhile in Salem, the Legislature is hosting debates over whether or not Jory soil should be the official state soil. The bottom line of the City Club report is that PERS is going to demand an increasing share of state, school and local government payrolls. That means less money for roads, to teach children, for public safety. As the City Club report states, PERS preliminary estimates at the end
of last year show the system 88 percent funded, with an unfunded actuarial liability of approximately $7.2 billion. The situation is worse than just that $7.2 billion. When the official liability calculation is made for PERS, it includes as an asset the $5.5 billion deposited in employer side accounts. Side accounts have money that employers borrow using pension obligation bonds. The employers use the borrowed money to pre-pay part of their future pension costs. Employers pay the debt service on the bonds outside of PERS. So while the benefits of the side accounts are assets to PERS, the liabilities are not included in state calculations. Arguably, a more accurate calculation of the liability of the PERS system would include the liabilities of the side accounts. That puts the state’s liabilities closer to $13.6 billion, the report said. Fantasies about extravagant investment returns can’t be relied on alone to fix that. We’re not saying the state retirement system should be abolished. The PERS beast needs to be tamed. It should provide a suitable retirement benefit for state employees without devouring a larger and larger share of budgets. The Legislature has been timid to take on PERS. What PERS reform legislation looks likely to pass? Maybe one bill curtailing a benefit for out-of-state of PERS recipients. The benefit compensates them for taxes they don’t pay. Legislature, your family is going broke. It’s time to do something about it.
A bridge to tolls I
f your view of Portland is limited to downtown, you may not be familiar with the Sellwood Bridge, which connects that area to the southeast part of the city. The bridge is old, and replacing it, critical. Even more critical is the financing of that replacement. Clackamas County voters Tuesday rejected a $5-per-year vehicle registration fee that would have helped defray the cost of construction. Even in tough economic times that’s hardly a family budget buster and is dwarfed by the $19 per year Multnomah County residents already pay to help replace the bridge. According to The Oregonian, meanwhile, a 2006 study of the Sellwood found that 70 percent of all traffic on the bridge starts or ends in Clackamas County. The defeat has sent Multnomah County commissioners scrambling. They must come up with a way to replace the $22 million they’d hoped to get from Clackamas County somewhere else, and they need to do so quickly. Experts say the bridge’s life is in its waning days, and the structure must be rebuilt soon. The county’s problems with paying for a new Sellwood Bridge would be of little interest on this side of the mountains but for one thing. They’re
a reflection of a broader problem financing road improvements and repairs across the state. Neither Oregon nor most of the communities within it have an adequate supply of cash on hand to do what needs to be done. The federal government, long a supplier of highway cash, is not in such great shape itself. Even in Bend, where voters approved a bond measure Tuesday for major roadwork, the city is hard put to pay for more modest projects. All of which argues for finding an alternate way of financing at least some highway projects, including, perhaps, the Sellwood Bridge. Among their options Multnomah County commissioners are considering making a new Sellwood Bridge a toll bridge, charging those who use it for the privilege of doing so. Tolls, be they on bridges or roads, are not particularly popular in the Northwest. They do have the advantage of charging those who use a stretch of highway for the privilege of doing so. That frees tax dollars for projects elsewhere. Tolls aren’t the answer to Oregon’s financial problems. What they are is a possible way for the state and its cities and counties to keep roadways adequate to the burdens they must bear.
My Nickel’s Worth Geese in Bend parks The goose poop problems that are plaguing the Bend parks can be solved with a simple solution. We have a readymade cheap workforce in the form of our prison population and those people who are required to do community service. Why not let these people clean up our parks each morning to help them get their day started? Somebody tell me why this wouldn’t work. Keith Cloudas Sunriver
Balancing Bend’s budget We’re fortunate in Bend. Despite the challenges we face as a city, our employees continue to provide outstanding service. It hasn’t been easy. Since 2007, Bend has laid off 58 employees and eliminated 46 vacant positions. That’s a 19 percent reduction in personnel! Our employees are working harder with less, trying to provide the same level of services. It’s no secret that personnel costs impact a city’s budget, and the city council looks to find appropriate, sustainable ways to manage those costs while retaining a top-notch workforce. Most of our employees belong to one of three unions, and we work cooperatively to address any changes to employee benefits. We’ve already made significant strides that are both cost-effective and reliable. Just like you and I, city employees are members of our community. They not only work in public service, but dedicate their own time giving back. The City of Bend Employee Association (COBEA) members plant trees for Arbor Day. Bend Firefighters compete in a stair climb for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Bend Police organize the Polar Plunge benefiting Spe-
cial Olympics. Just last month, employees from finance and administration put together 80 Easter baskets for the KIDS Center. These are just a few of the many generous acts. We are all aware of the challenges that lie ahead as we approach this next biennial budget and are committed to facing them together. For that, and all the work they do, I just want to tell Bend employees: Thank You. Jodie Barram Bend mayor pro tem
The problem is illegal The other night, on the news, a person wanted people to have compassion for illegal immigrants. My view on illegal immigration is this: I don’t have a problem with the word “immigration” (never have, never will), but I do have a problem with the word “illegal” (always have, always will, and I bet I’m not alone!), so when someone wants me to have compassion toward illegal immigrants, I assume they’re OK with the word “illegal,” because I’m not!

Support ‘Peoples Budget’ On April 14 the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) introduced a “Peoples Budget” as an alternative to President Obama’s center-right and Representative Ryan’s far-right proposals. The CPC recognizes that the public wants job creation, tax fairness, strong retirement protections and deficit reduction. The Peoples Budget would close tax loopholes that encourage companies to ship jobs overseas, eliminate oil and gas subsidies, bring our troops home and make millionaires, billionaires and corporations pay their fair share. It would
actually generate a budget surplus by 2021, according to CPC co-chair Representative Raul Grijalva of Arizona. An April 17 Washington Post/ABC poll found that 72 percent of those interviewed support raising taxes on Americans with incomes over $250,000 dollars per year as the best way to eliminate the national debt. The People’s Budget does just that — rescinding those upper-income tax cuts. It would invest $1.45 trillion in job creation, education, clean energy, broadband infrastructure, housing and R&D. It creates a long-proposed national infrastructure investment bank to support loans and grants on projects that are vital to U.S. economic competitiveness. Contact Sens. Wyden and Merkley and ask them to speak out in support of the principles of the Peoples Budget during the upcoming debate on the budget and debt ceiling and to oppose the deficit reduction package that would balance the budget on the backs of the poor with massive cuts to our social safety net. Read the executive summary at the U.S. House of Representatives website. Philip Paterno Powell Butte
Enforce roundabout rules If Bend has one or 50 roundabouts, I fail to see the advantage if drivers continue their current driving habits: speeding up to beat the next vehicle rather than blending in and, above all, failure to use turn signals. Until we have enforcement on these problems, which are common on all roundabouts, I will continue to put on my blindfold and drive like everyone else. I can’t wait to see the zoo at 15th and Reed Market Road when the double lane roundabout is completed. Gary Winslow Bend

Don’t allow Prineville to be intimidated by nativity lawsuits By Don Henry Bulletin guest columnist
ince at least the 1980s the city of Prineville (along with the Park and Recreation Department) has displayed a nativity scene, along with other holiday items of a secular nature, on public property. Last December the city was notified by the Freedom From Religion Foundation that a citizen had complained about the nativity scene, and they instructed the city to remove it or else face a possible lawsuit. The city council decided to remove the display one week sooner than usual. On January 11 the council stated that the display would remain intact in a different location with additional secular symbols included. A citizen’s committee along with the city attorney drafted a resolution (#1161) to address all concerns, and make sure everything would meet constitutional muster. Just before the city council was to vote on the resolution at their April 26th
meeting, the city attorney, Carl Dutli, was informed that the ACLU might sue. The council actually voted on replacing some of the references to “Christmas” with “holiday.” The vote deadlocked 3-3. The ACLU made it known that changing some of the words would not address their concerns, since the city would still be sponsoring the display, and that they would probably continue with their suit because the Oregon Constitution is stricter than the U. S. Constitution “regarding neutrality by government where religious activity is concerned.” So on May 10th the city attorney recommended that the city allow a private individual or group to sponsor the nativity scene. However, no vote was taken that night. Do you see a pattern here? The city council, often on the advice of the city attorney, is being reactionary and is being pushed all over the place out of fear of a possible lawsuit. Don’t get me wrong; I believe the council and Mr. Dutli are all trying to do what is good for the commu-
IN MY VIEW nity by allowing the display, while looking out for the limited dollars of the city. But we are looking more like scared dogs running away with our tails between our legs. The problem with this is deeper than most people are aware. If the city backs down because of the ACLU’s threat, the people of Prineville and the entire state of Oregon lose. Groups such as the ACLU ultimately want any reference to religion in general (and Christianity in particular) removed from the public square, and they like to intimidate and use the fear of costly litigation to make their targets give up without a fight. It is past time we stop giving up precious ground to these secularist groups. Our city has been contacted by the Pacific Justice Institute, Alliance Defense Fund, and Liberty Counsel, all of whom are very experienced at defending
against the erosion of religious liberties, having been very successful against the ACLU and similar groups. They all want to take on the threat, and have offered to defend the city free of charge if a lawsuit is filed. After talking with all three of these groups, my belief is that the ACLU will back down because they have no valid case. In Lynch v. Donnelly the U.S. Supreme Court specifically approved a municipally-owned and sponsored nativity scene (with certain criteria, such as an openness to other religious displays and the presence of secular displays, which ours meets). Furthermore, Article 1, section 5 of the Oregon Constitution states: “No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religeous [sic], or theological institution, nor shall any money be appropriated for the payment of any religeous [sic] services in either house of the Legislative Assembly.” The Pacific Justice Institute states, “We are confident that neither the text of this pro-
vision, nor any controlling interpretive decisions, support the ACLU’s position that flatly contradicts well-settled First Amendment jurisprudence” (letter to Prineville City Council, May 10, 2011). Many concerned citizens are passing around petitions to encourage our city council to pass Resolution No. 1161 at their next meeting on May 24, and to “stand strong on principle and not be badgered into giving up a history and a freedom that is rightfully ours.” We are tired of the secularists scaring community governments into further distancing themselves from any mention of religion in the public arena. We are drawing a line in the sand right here and right now. Will you join us? If you are a member of the Prineville area community, please go to www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/ prinevilleliberty to sign an online petition to encourage the City Council to approve Resolution No. 1161. Don Henry lives in Prineville.

Chemist who studied molecules’ form dies By Thomas H. Maugh II Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES — Chemist Corwin Hansch, who pioneered the field of relating a molecule’s chemical structure to its biological activity, an approach widely used in developing new drugs and other commercial chemicals, died in Claremont, Calif., on May 8. He was 92 and had suffered from a prolonged bout with pneumonia. Hansch was known as the “father of computer-assisted molecule design” for his development of Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships, known colloquially as QSARs, which allow chemists to modify drugs and other molecules in a predictable manner to achieve desired characteristics. He did it, moreover, at Pomona College, a liberal arts institution where his primary source of manpower for his laboratory research was undergraduate students. “I can’t think of many other primarily undergraduate faculty who have had, or will have, such a huge research impact,” said chemist Dan O’Leary, his colleague at Pomona. QSARs, also known simply as Hansch equations, are a series of equations that relate observable biological effects to specific, measurable properties of molecules. In practice, the first step in using the equations is determining the biological effects of a series of closely related compounds. The equation that results then reveals how the structure of the molecule should be varied to obtain the maximum biological effect. By the time of his retirement, Hansch had published more than 250 papers in scientific journals, with at least 43 undergraduate co-authors.

Bill Summers, 75, car builder who set a speed record dies By Dennis Hevesi New York Times News Service
Bill and Bob Summers were hot-rodding high school students when they began souping up clunkers in their Southern California town in the 1950s and heading out to race them across dry lake beds. Bill would become a truck driver, Bob a welder — hardly hightech engineers with aerodynamic design skills. And yet they built a spearlike vehicle that in 1965 set the world speed record for wheeldriven cars, a record that stood for 26 years. (Wheel-driven cars are in a class distinct from jetpowered cars that rely on engine thrust.) Bill Summers died of natural causes at his home in Ontario, Calif., on May 12, his daughter Maggie Peace said. He was 75. Bob, his younger brother, who had driven the car they built — the Goldenrod — died in 1991. It was on Nov. 12, 1965, on a stretch of the Bonneville Salt Flats in northwestern Utah, that the Goldenrod — zooming past the clock on two separate runs within an hour — set the record with an average top speed of 409.277 mph. That broke the record of 403.135 set a year earlier, on July 17, 1964, by Donald Campbell, an Englishman. Before Campbell, the record had been held for 17 years by another Englishman, John Cobb, who had driven 394.196 mph on Sept. 16, 1947. The Summers brothers built the Goldenrod in an abandoned, sheet-metal-covered vegetable stand near their home. Despite their lack of technical training, said Bob Casey, curator of transportation for the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn,
Bill Summers, left, talks with Bob Summers sitting in the driver’s seat of Goldenrod. Mich., “their car established the paradigm for future land-speedrecord cars.” “They saw that the key to making a car go fast, aside from power,” Casey continued, “was having as little frontal area as possible, to be as low and narrow as possible so that you punch a smaller hole in the air.” The Goldenrod, which is in the
Ford museum collection, is 32 feet long, 48 inches wide, 42 inches high, and weighs about 6,000 pounds. It holds four Chrysler engines of about 600 horsepower each. On Aug. 21, 1991, the Goldenrod record was broken by Al Teague, when his car averaged 409.986 mph. The record now stands at 458.440, set by Don Vesco on Oct.
18, 2001. Before the Summers brothers, “the records typically were set by the British, who had huge budgets,” said Greg Sharp, curator of the National Hot Rod Association Museum in Pomona, Calif. “And here’s a couple of American hot-rodders who built their car in the backyard and took that record away.” The Summers brothers went on to own a company that produced high-quality driveline components, particularly high-strength axles, for drag racing cars. William Ray Summers was born in Omaha, Neb., on Dec. 18, 1935, one of three children of Sherman and Mary Summers. The family later moved to Washington state and then to California. Besides his daughter, Maggie, his survivors include his sister, Susan Cunningham; two other daughters, Cheryl Cooper and Christina Lefevre; a son, Rick; 12 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. His wife of 28 years, the former Joy Young, died in 2002. Casey, the Ford museum curator, said the museum has a film clip of the moment when the brothers found out they had broken the record. “Here they were scraping for money, living on a shoestring,” Casey said. “And when the official timer, Joe Petrali, handed Bob the timing slip and showed them that they had finally done it, brought this record back to the United States, the camera panned across this small group of people and you can see Bill grabbing his eyes, tearing up.”
Author whose first novel was rejected 162 times dies By Valerie J. Nelson McClatchy-Tribune News Service
LOS ANGELES — Creativewriting instructor Dick Wimmer’s best lesson for would-be authors may have had more to do with persistence than prose. His first novel, the well-reviewed “Irish Wine,” was published in 1989 after being turned down by publishers and agents 162 times over more than 25 years. He once laid claim to being history’s most-rejected published novelist. At the time, his closest official competition was Steven Goldberg’s “The Inevitability of Patriarchy,” which sold after 69 rejections, the Guinness Book of World Records told the Los Angeles Times in 1989. Wimmer, who also edited books about sports, died unexpectedly Wednesday at his Agoura Hills, Calif., home of heart complications, said his son Geordie. He was 74. “I don’t want it to be a freak of fiction,” Wimmer said in 1989 in the Times of “Irish Wine.”
“I don’t want (‘Irish Wine’) to be a freak of fiction. I would like the book to hold up on its own merits.” — Dick Wimmer, author “I would like the book to hold up on its own merits.” It did. The New York Times raved about the book the year it came out, calling it a “taut, finely written, exhaustingly exuberant first novel.” The Los Angeles Times said Wimmer had encased “the zany saga in an enchanted aura by couching it entirely in the stream-of-consciousness prose hallowed by James Joyce and disciples.” The idea for “Irish Wine” came to Wimmer during his early 1960s honeymoon. After the book’s 80th or so rejection, he streamlined the story that he always believed was good enough to be published, he said in the 1989 Times interview.
“Irish Wine” tells the tale of a reunion between a brash Irish painter, Seamus Boyne, and a would-be writer from America. Two sequels followed, the well-reviewed 1998 comic novel “Boyne’s Lassie” and “Hagar’s Dream,” published with the two earlier books as “Irish Wine Trilogy” in 2001. He was born Richard Samuel Wimmer on June 18, 1936, in New York City to Sidney Wimmer, who owned a pest control company, and his wife, Frances. After growing up on Long Island, Wimmer earned a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University in 1958 and master’s degrees in English from Yale University in 1959 and Columbia University in 1974. His marriage ended in divorce
in the late 1970s, about the same time he moved to Agoura Hills, northwest of Los Angeles. Since 1968, Wimmer had taught English and creative writing and had been affiliated with 28 colleges, his family said. He edited a number of well-regarded nonfiction books about sports. They included “The Schoolyard Game,” a 1993 collection of basketball writing, and the 1997 anthology “The Gridiron Game.” Wimmer also wrote the screenplay for the 1982 TV movie “The Million-Dollar Infield,” which featured Rob Reiner. “It’s probably harder to get a novel published than to make a movie,” Wimmer once said, even though his second attempt at becoming a published author was far easier than the first. “Boyne’s Lassie” was turned down 83 times, he later said, before finally making it into print. In addition to his son Geordie of Agoura Hills, Wimmer is survived by another son, Ceo, of Pasadena, Md., and four grandchildren.
Donald Krim, a film distributor who brought a wide range of movies, foreign and domestic, contemporary and classic, to American audiences in theaters and on home video, died on Friday at his home in New York. He was 65. The cause was cancer, said his brother Robert. As the president of Kino International, a company founded in 1977 and acquired by Krim in 1978, he supervised the acquisition and release of many important films that might not have reached U.S. shores without his discriminating taste and distribution savvy. His first import was “The Battle of Orin,” by the Japanese director Masahiro Shinoda, which attracted critical support although it floundered at the box office. “But it was a nice film and we weren’t discouraged,” Krim told the website DVD Talk in 2002. Among the films imported by Kino as a result of Krim’s festival explorations were Percy Adlon’s “Zuckerbaby” (1985), Mitsuo Yanagimachi’s “Himatsuri” (1986) and Michel Khleifi’s “Wedding in Galilee” (1988). Krim also helped to introduce the work of such arthouse stalwarts as the Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai (“Days of Being Wild,” 1990), the Austrian Michael Haneke (“The Piano Teacher,” 2001) and the Israeli Amos Gitai (“Kadosh,” 1999). Three Kino releases received Academy Award nominations in the best foreign-language film category: Joseph Cedar’s “Beaufort” (2007), Scandar Copti’s “Ajami” (2009) and Giorgos Lanthimos’ “Dogtooth” (2010). Krim was also known for his commitment to silent films and other classics, which he re-released both theatrically and through Kino on Video, a home video subsidiary he initiated in 1987. The company issued crucial collections of the work of Buster Keaton, Douglas Fairbanks, D.W. Griffth and many other giants of U.S. silent film, as well as newly restored versions of many German silent films, including “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.”
Pre-eminent railroad photographer dies at 81 Los Angeles Times Richard Steinheimer, a master of railroad photography whose poetic images documented a half-century of trains and the landscape of the American West, has died. He was 81. Steinheimer died May 4 at his Sacramento, Calif., home of Alzheimer’s disease, said his wife, Shirley Burman. From the early 1950s until he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2000, Steinheimer was regarded as a pre-eminent railroad photographer. He recorded the tail end of railroad’s transition from steam to diesel power and took “some of the most beautiful night photographs of railroads ever made,” according to New York City’s Robert Mann Gallery, which represents his work. Sometimes, Steinheimer would position himself precariously atop locomotives so that his camera could better capture the feeling of motion. A 1963 book of his photographs, “Backwoods Railroads of the West,” eventually became one of the most collected railroad books, the gallery said. An early Steinheimer photo that is considered his first masterpiece, “28 Degrees Below at Thistle, Utah, 1951,” caught the shadow of both the steam locomotive and its smoke in the snow. “He loved that photo,” his wife said. “It was so hard to take. He was using a 4-by-5 Speed Graphic, and he was only able to get off two shots it was so cold out.”

State site connects users with broadband resources By Tim Doran The Bulletin
With the help of a new webbased map, Oregonians can now find companies providing highspeed Internet service in their neighborhoods and the type of services they offer. The Oregon State Broadband Map, part of a $4.7 billion national effort to promote and expand broadband technology, also allows users to test the speed of their current Internet connections and find schools, hospitals, colleges and even highway exit numbers. C om mu n i ties with access to broadband technology, essentially any connection faster than dial-up, can provide better economic development, education and health care services, officials say. “Broadband infrastructure is essential infrastructure, just as important as roads, bridges and water systems,” said Chris Tamarin, telecommunications strategist for the Oregon Business Development Department. The broadband promotion effort also includes a series of 15 meetings across the state, including forums scheduled in Warm Springs and Bend in June. Oregon’s broadband map, which the state unveiled May 5, allows users to type in their addresses and get street-level results. A search last week using a southwest Bend address returned 13 different companies offering broadband via satellite, cable or telephone lines, along with wireless Internet providers. Giving consumers and businesses a comprehensive list of Internet providers in a single location is one of the map’s main purposes. “People may not be aware of what services are available in their areas,” Tamarin said. The map provides links to the companies, although Tamarin said some may only offer services to businesses. See Broadband / C6
Todd Wells motors his electric-powered canoe up the Deschutes River Thursday. The motor’s sound, he says, is like a sewing machine.
By Kate Ramsayer • The Bulletin
hen Todd Wells and Nancy Burgon slipped their boat into the Deschutes River last week for the first time this year, there wasn’t any noisy start up for the outboard motor. As they navigated around shallow
rocks to head upstream, a lawnmower three yards away drowned out their motor’s hum. To Wells, the motor on the back of their freighter canoe sounds more like the whir of a sewing machine. “It just kind of buzzes along,” Burgon said. “This is

as loud as it gets. Peaceful, isn’t it?” The only outboard motor on the boat is electric, powered by 48-volts worth of batteries, and with thrust comparable to an 8-horsepower gas-powered engine, Wells said. For them, electric motors provide a chance to go boating quietly, without emitting pollutants or burning gas, and also be able to go on waterways like Waldo Lake where gas motors are prohibited. And after getting hooked on the motors the last couple of years, Wells has written a guide to help other do-it-yourselfers make the switch to electric.
To switch over to an electric outboard motor, Todd Wells connected several batteries and built a box to keep them in. Charging the batteries overnight costs less than $2.
“There’s no local dealer. You kind of have to go out of your way to find these motors,” he said. “It’s kind of like the electric car. People look at them sideways until they get to know them more.” While many boaters have a small electric motor for trawling, it’s typically a secondary motor in addition to the gas one. But Wells estimates that most Central Oregonians could get by on just one, primary electric outboard motor. It can reach speeds of 6 or 7 mph, he said, and once
on a still day at Crane Prairie he got it up to 8 mph. “Even though they’re small, they’re mighty,” Wells said. The battery set-up he built into a box on the boat will last for 10 to 12 hours on a lake with no current, and maybe 5 to 6 hours against a current. “But that’s plenty for us,” he said. The couple started out with a canoe that they put batteries and a trolling motor on, Wells said. See Motor / C6
Controlling the neural switchboard By Carl E. Schoonover and Abby Rabinowitz New York Times News Service
Deisseroth Laboratory via New York Times News Service
A mouse is connected to a fiberoptic-based neural interface that is using optogenetics, which allows researchers to control electrical activity in the brain.
Treating anxiety no longer requires years of pills or psychotherapy. At least, not for a certain set of bioengineered mice. In a study recently published in the journal Nature, a team of neuroscientists turned these highstrung prey into bold explorers with the flip of a switch. The group, led by Karl Deisseroth, a psychiatrist and researcher at Stanford, employed an emerging technology called
optogenetics to control electrical activity in a few carefully selected neurons. First they engineered these neurons to be sensitive to light. Then, using implanted optical fibers, they flashed blue light on a specific neural pathway in the amygdala, a brain region involved in processing emotions. And the mice, which had been keeping to the sides of their enclosure, scampered freely across an open space.
While such tools are very far from being used or even tested in humans, scientists say optogenetics research is exciting because it gives them extraordinary control over specific brain circuits — and with it, new insights into an array of disorders, among them anxiety and Parkinson’s disease. Mice are very different from humans, as Deisseroth (pronounced DICE-erroth) acknowledged. See Neural / C3

Dear Abby: I’m desperate for guidance. I have no mentors to consult or anyone with more life experience because I have no family left I can talk to anymore. Five years ago, when I was 22, my father committed suicide. My mother and I were witnesses. His family blamed me for not trying to wrestle a loaded gun from him. (I know I did the right thing.) Dad’s family cut Mother and me off completely. Mom always had a problem with drinking, but it became worse after Dad killed himself. The last five years have been spent putting my life on hold to pick up the pieces. Mom loses jobs for being drunk, is all but blacklisted in the city she lives in and is often short of rent money. If I give her money to pay her rent, she blows it on alcohol. She’ll sleep with strangers for money when she’s facing eviction. It kills me knowing the mother who loved me is going to eventually end up on the street, but I can’t be her mother anymore. I didn’t have a childhood because I was always dealing with her alcoholism, and Dad’s, too. I can’t bear the thought of her homeless and hungry, but I know picking her up only enables her drinking. Please help me. I don’t know what to do. — Desperate For Guidance In California Dear Desperate: You are a caring and dutiful daughter, but the burden you have assumed will crush you if you don’t put it down. No one can save someone who doesn’t want to be saved or isn’t ready to be. Until your mother realizes she needs help for her addiction, she’ll continue on the path her drinking is leading her. It is extremely important for your emotional well-being to let go of your guilt for being unable to “mother your mother.” An excellent place to begin would be
DEAR ABBY to attend some Al-Anon meetings. There you will find support from friends and relatives of alcoholics who help each other through the same trials you are experiencing. The meetings are free and confidential. To find one in your area, call 888-4AL-ANON. Someone will always answer during business hours Eastern time. Or, visit the website at Al-AnonFamily Groups.org. Dear Abby: My sister is having a baby, and we’re wondering if there is an acceptable way to let people know that she wouldn’t mind getting used items as gifts — especially the “big” things. No one in our family is well off, but this is her first child and she does need stuff. Would a note in the shower invitation be tacky? In this moneysaving time, I think our idea is a good one. How do we convey the message? — Likes “Like-New” In Ohio Dear Likes “Like-New”: I’m glad you asked, because a note in the shower invitation would be tacky. The way that message should be conveyed is verbally, when prospective guests ask what the mother-to-be needs. However, before your sister uses a secondhand toy or nursery equipment, it would be a good idea to check the website run by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to make certain the item hasn’t been the subject of a safety recall. (More than 300 products of various types are recalled each year.) The website to visit is www.recalls.gov.

“The Playboy Club,” a “Mad Men”-inspired period drama on NBC will star, from left, Leah Renee, Amber Heard, Naturi Naughton and Jenna Dewan. iar names have been hired to star in new shows. Film star Christina Ricci will headline “Pan Am” while Jim Caviezel is in the new CBS drama “Person of Interest.” ABC has Ashley Judd’s “Missing” waiting in the wings to be a
midseason replacement. Biggest cancelation surprise: The very funny Fox comedy “Breaking In” had decent ratings but still got the ax. It would be a great pickup for a cable channel.

Parkinson’s disease and retinal degeneration.
Continued from C1 But he added that because “the mammalian brain has striking commonalities across species,” the findings might lead to a better understanding of the neural mechanisms of human anxiety. David Barlow, founder of the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at Boston University, cautions against pushing the analogy too far: “I am sure the investigators would agree that these complex syndromes can’t be reduced to the firing of a single small neural circuit without considering other important brain circuits, including those involved in thinking and appraisal.”
In the laboratory
Targeted treatment But a deeper insight is suggested by a followup experiment in which Deisseroth’s team directed their light beam just a little more broadly, activating more pathways in the amygdala. This erased the effect entirely, leaving the mouse as skittish as ever. This implies that current drug treatments, which are far less specific and often cause side effects, could also in part be working against themselves. David Anderson, a professor of biology at the California Institute of Technology who also does research using optogenetics, compares the drugs’ effects to a sloppy oil change. If you dump a gallon of oil over your car’s engine, some of it will dribble into the right place, but a lot of it will end up doing more harm than good. “Psychiatric disorders are probably not due only to chemical imbalances in the brain,” Anderson said. “It’s more than just a giant bag of serotonin or dopamine whose concentrations sometimes are too low or too high. Rather, they likely involve disorders of specific circuits within specific brain regions.” So optogenetics, which can focus on individual circuits with exceptional precision, may hold promise for psychiatric treatment. But Deisseroth and others caution that it will be years before these tools are used on humans, if ever. Thanks to optogenetics, neuroscientists can go beyond observing correlations between the activity of neurons and an animal’s behavior; by turning particular neurons on or off at will, they can prove that those neurons actually govern the behavior. “Sometimes before I give talks, people will ask me about my ‘imaging’ tools,” said Deisseroth, 39, a practicing psychiatrist whose dissatisfaction with current treatments led him to form a research laboratory in 2004 to develop and apply optogenetic technology. “I say: ‘Interestingly, it’s the complete opposite of imaging, which is observational. We’re not using light to observe events. We’re sending light in to cause events.’” In early experiments, scientists showed that they could make worms stop wiggling and drive mice around in manic circles as if by remote control. Now that the technique has earned its stripes, laboratories around the world are using it to better understand how the nervous system works, and to study problems including chronic pain,
Some of the insights gained from these experiments in the lab are already inching their way to the clinic. Dr. Amit Etkin, a Stanford psychiatrist and researcher who collaborates with Deisseroth, is trying to translate the findings about anxiety in rodents to improve human therapy with existing tools. Using transcranial magnetic stimulation, a technique that is far less specific than optogenetics but has the advantage of being noninvasive, Etkin seeks to activate the human analog of the amygdala circuitry that reduced anxiety in Deisseroth’s mice. Dr. Jaimie Henderson, their colleague in the neurosurgery department, has treated more than 600 Parkinson’s patients using a standard procedure called deep brain stimulation. The treatment, which requires implanting metal electrodes in a brain region called the subthalamic nucleus, improves coordination and fine motor control. But it also causes side effects, like involuntary muscle contractions and dizziness, perhaps because turning on electrodes deep inside the brain also activates extraneous circuits. “If we could find a way to just activate the circuits that provide therapeutic benefit without the ones that cause side effects, that would obviously be very helpful,” Henderson said. Moreover, as with any invasive brain surgery, implanting electrodes carries the risk of infection and life-threatening hemorrhage. What if you could stimulate the brain’s surface instead? A new theory of how deep brain stimulation affects Parkinson’s symptoms, based on optogenetics work in rodents, suggests that this might succeed. Henderson has recently begun clinical tests in human patients and hopes that this approach may also treat other problems associated with Parkinson’s, like speech disorders. In the building next door, Krishna Shenoy, a neuroscience researcher, is bringing optogenetics to work on primates. Extending the success of a similar effort by an MIT group led by Robert Desimone and Edward Boyden, he recently inserted opsins into the brains of rhesus monkeys. They experienced no ill effects from the viruses or the optical fibers, and the team was able to control selected neurons using light.
Potential for people Some researchers are already imagining how optogeneticsbased treatments could be used directly on people if the biomedical challenge of safely delivering novel genes to patients can be overcome. For Deisseroth, who treats patients with autism and depression, optogenetics offers a more immediate promise: easing the stigma faced by people with mental illness, whose appearance of physical health can cause incomprehension from family members, friends and doctors. “Just understanding for us, as a society, that someone who has anxiety has a known or knowable circuitry difference is incredibly valuable,” he said.

H BY JACQUELINE BIGAR
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, May 23, 2011: Others find you remarkable, alluring and “together.” This image might be difficult to maintain. Let others see you as less than perfect. For several months, you seem to have had the ability to fulfill your desires. Your circle of friends and acquaintances will expand. If you are single, you will meet several very desirable suitors. Use care with new people. They might not be all you think they are. If you are attached, the relationship will benefit from spending more time together, socializing or as a couple alone. AQUARIUS makes you smile. 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 You have an upbeat, personal and unique style that singles you out. Your clarity encourages people to follow your lead. Even if you want to pursue a project on your own, others won’t let you. Tonight: Don’t act like it is Monday night. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Take a stand, but do it gracefully. How you tell someone that you don’t agree with him or her can define how willing this person is to work with you. Honor what is happening with a respected friend or relative. Tonight: Burning the candle at both ends. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Keep reaching out for the impossible. Linking minds and exchanging ideas could be difficult.
Normally this type of brainstorming isn’t, but your mind is so out there, as concepts and ideas fly in and out. Tonight: Relax to good music. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your ability to home in on the real issues with someone you care about adds to the warmth of the bond. You might see the solution, where this person or someone else doesn’t. Let them figure it out. Be gracious. Tonight: A close encounter. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Many people try to tell you what to do, even though they might have never been in your position. Perhaps letting them live out a part of your life and being as responsible as you could help. This is the perfect time and place. Tonight: Sort through invitations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Maintain a high profile. Your way of handling projects, daily demands and maybe even work testifies to your efficiency. You will get a lot done quickly. Reach out for someone at a distance. Tonight: Let go of your day. Find your favorite spot. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Your ability to home in on what counts (especially with loved ones and special friends) is why you are considered such a thoughtful sign. A discussion about money might not be graceful, but most certainly is necessary. Tonight: Where the gang is. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You might want to stay close to home or work from home.

Technology, attitudes converge to make rooftop farms a reality By Glenn Rifkin
Danielle Gould, a BrightFarms Systems associate, picks herbs at a rooftop farm built by the company in New York.
New York Times News Service
When Lufa Farms began selling produce to customers in Montreal in late April, it signaled what could be the beginning of a tantalizing new era in the gastronomic fortunes of that Canadian metropolis. In all but the short summer season, the availability of fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables has been little more than a pipe dream for Montreal residents. But Lufa Farms, founded by Mohamed Hage and Kurt Lynn, turned an unassuming office rooftop into a 31,000-square-foot greenhouse that grows tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and other produce year-round and is a working example of a developing trend known as urban rooftop farming. It has taken a timely convergence of technologies and consumer attitudes to bring rooftop farming to the fore. The advance of hydroponic growing techniques and innovative, cost-effective greenhouse systems, together with increasing consumer desire for organic produce, has redefined the term locally grown and spurred entrepreneurs to create a variety of greenhouse technologies and business models. The Lufa Farms model is to sell directly to consumers through a co-op. Other urban farms are forming partnerships with supermarket chains by building large greenhouses on supermarket roofs and selling their produce to the store below. A third concept, called vertical farming, involves growing food in skyscrapers or even warehouses using artificial light and organic growing materials. In theory, a 30-story, one-square block farm could yield as much food as 2,400 outdoor acres, and with less spoilage because it would travel less distance, according to Dickson Despommier, a Columbia University emeritus professor of public health and microbiology and a leading proponent of vertical

farming. TerraSphere, a unit of Converted Organics with offices in Surrey, British Columbia, and Boston, designs and builds vertical farm systems and sells its lettuce and spinach through Choices Markets, an organic grocery chain in western Canada.
The capital costs to get started are higher for rooftop farms — from $1.2 million to $2 million to find a building and set up a greenhouse — but the operating costs are much lower. That is because rooftop farms require less labor, land, water, fertilizer and heavy equipment and because they all but eliminate shipping costs by selling to the local market. The result, proponents say, is a fresher, tastier, longer-lasting, more nutritious product. Most rooftop gardens use hydroponic cultivation, a waterbased growing system in which no soil is required, nutrients are carefully controlled and natural pest control using insects is favored over pesticides. These greenhouses extend the already popular green-roof concept, using recycled water and lowering energy consumption in the buildings upon which they sit. Lufa Farms says it has saved its host building 25 percent in heating costs since it completed its greenhouse. Because the rooftop farm concept is so new, a true profitability picture will not emerge for a couple of years, said David Furneaux, a venture capitalist based in Waltham, Mass. But he has been looking for investment opportunities in agriculture for three years, and he says a direct-to-consumer model “has the potential to be extremely profitable, generating 25 percent net income for this type of business.” “Is this a sustainable profitmaking business?” he asked. “The answer is yes.”
Can it be profitable? As the technologies have been conquered and viability studies have evolved into real enterprises, a crucial question remains: Can rooftop farmers make a profit? After four years of developing the business, building the greenhouse and refining growing techniques, Lufa Farms has started delivering baskets of produce to local subscribers: $22 for a sixpound basket and $30 for a basket weighing about nine pounds. With more than 400 customers signed up and more joining daily, Lynn, a 60-year-old technology entrepreneur who founded, ListenUP! Canada, a hearing aid chain, says Lufa Farms can enroll a thousand customers, break even this year and reap a 15 percent profit in the future. “Unlike a lot of startups, we’re not trying to find a market,” Lynn said. “We know there is a demand for this.” Montreal, like other cold-climate cities, has its share of small organic farms. But a land-based farmer is restricted to a 24-to 28week growing season while a rooftop greenhouse can produce year-round.
Motor Continued from C1 “We live on the (Deschutes) River south of Sunriver, and we got tired of paddling against the current,” he said. Then, they realized they wanted to be able to explore bigger lakes and maybe coastal estuaries and inlets. So about two years ago, during a long winter, Wells got to work outfitting the freighter canoe with an outboard motor. It’s only in the last three or four years that companies have been producing electric outboards that are relatively affordable, he said. Buying the batteries, motor and other equipment can cost between $4,000 and $6,000, but Wells noted that people don’t have to buy gas, and maintenance is easier. “But once you’ve bought the batteries and the motor, it’s just a few dollars to charge up your system,” he said. “They’re very reliable. There’s no ethanol in the gas you have to worry about, or carburetors.” But electric motors aren’t an ideal fit for everyone, Wells said. People camping or fishing for multiple days without access to an electric outlet, for example, would be out of luck with electric outboards, as would people who want more speed. Wells also had to line the sides of the boat with extra flotation to make up for the extra 400 pounds of weight from the batteries. But he said others could get by with less. But for Wells and Burgon, the benefits — especially the quietness of the engine — outweigh any drawbacks. When the couple goes out in mornings and evenings, they can startle neighbors, otters and critters living along the banks of the Deschutes. “You can sneak up on wildlife; they don’t usually hear,” Burgon said. And although modern 4stroke engines don’t emit as many pollutants as older models, the electric options are even cleaner, Wells said. “There’s no emissions either into the water or into the

air,” he said. “Electric motors can go pretty much anywhere,” said Ashley Massey, spokeswoman with the Oregon Marine Board. Waldo Lake was closed to gas-powered craft after people expressed concern about the impacts on water quality and noise, she said. “We want to make sure that our waters are protected,” she said. Many boaters are using electric trawling motors to stay steady in a current or maneuver into position, she said, but it’s
not common to have a primary outboard motor be electric. Some fellow boaters at marinas are intrigued by the electric outboard, Wells said, others are more skeptical. But through his manual for how to hook one up, he’s helped others make their boating expeditions a little quieter. “We’ve met a lot of people around the country who are doing the same sort of thing,” he said.

Users can also zoom out to get a picture of Internet coverage in their region or across the state. While the map indicates broadband availability in nearly all cities in Eastern Oregon, it shows huge swaths of rural areas without access. The map allows users to view providers by the type of service: digital-subscriber line, cable and fiber-optic. It also shows availability of wireless Internet. For example, fixed-wireless service covers most of Central Oregon, according to the map. DSL, which generally refers to high-speed Internet delivered by telephone companies, is the most widely available wired option in the region. But the map shows small portions of La Pine and Madras where it’s not available. Fewer areas can get broadband Internet over cable, and when it comes to delivery over fiber-optic lines, even the city of Bend has large sections where it’s unavailable, according to the

end of last year, the project was in the environmental assessment period, according to a Feb. 10 report filed with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The Oregon Public Utility Commission received about $3.8 million, in total, to collect and map broadband data through 2014, according to the state website. To make broadband available to the poor, the unemployed, the elderly and others, the federal government requires states and contractors to identify and provide broadband access to schools, libraries, health care providers and other agencies, called community anchor institutions. In the future, the state plans to add more information to the broadband map, such as demographic and, possibly, economic information. Officially, the map is in the testing, or beta, phase, and Tamarin said officials welcome feedback from the public. “It’s important to note,” he said, “that the Oregon broadband map is a work in progress.” Tim Doran can be reached at 541-383-0360 or at tdoran@ bendbulletin.com.

EQUESTRIAN Central District is OHSET champ for third year REDMOND — No need to re-size the crown for highpoint district champion of the Oregon High School Equestrian Teams state competition. It goes once again to the Central District. Composed mainly of riders from Central Oregon high schools, the Central District claimed its third consecutive state high-point title Sunday on the final day of the 2011 OHSET championship meet. Some 435 riders from the state’s eight OHSET districts took part in the competition, whose four-day run took place at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center. The Central District piled up 1,009 points to earn highpoint honors. The Southern District was second with 721 points, and the Northwest District was third with 642. Among the highlights for local contestants was the gold-medal performance of the Redmond team in the Freestyle 6+ drill event, which Redmond won for the third year in a row. Also, Central Oregon riders swept the medals in the barrels competition, with Bend High’s Ciara Timm winning the gold, Redmond’s Megen Hopper taking the silver, and Mountain View’s Courtney Thomas capturing the bronze. In all, Central District entries won eight gold medals, including Karlee Markham of Mountain View in the Figure 8 event, in which her time of 10.07 seconds set a new state record. Among high-point individual honorees for the state meet, Mountain View’s Laurie MacWhorter was first in both overall performance and individual performance, and Redmond’s Brandice Durfee was tops in the individual timed category.

Road to tri? Triathletes who ride road bikes can make their body position more aerodynamic with a few tweaks
Breaking it down: Changing your bike
Thinking of tweaking your road bike fit for triathlons? Rebound Sports Performance and Pilates owner Bart Bowen has a couple of suggestions: • Choose your aero bars carefully. “Adjustability is king when it comes to aero bars,” Bowen said. “If you have to pay a little bit more for an adjustable bar, consider it money well spent. It’ll pay off if you need to make some minor adjustments.” • Consider getting two different saddles and seat posts, one set up for a road position and the other for a triathlon position. That way, you can swap one out for the other depending on the kind of riding you are doing. “You just have to trade them out, and all of the sudden, you’ve kind of created a different bike,” Bowen said.
hen I go to triathlon races, I love to look at all of the
bikes. Sometimes as early as during the drive to a race venue, I catch a glimpse or two of bikes attached to nearby cars heading to the same place. The spectacle picks up the pace in the parking lot, where I can take a peak at the rides of the racers who park near me. But it’s the transition area where I get to see the bikes in their full-fledged glory — row upon row of them crammed next to one another. The variety is fascinating. Some bikes I can tell belong to dedicated triathletes: genuine triathlon/time trial-style bikes with aero bars and maybe even a disc wheel. I usually see a number of road bikes: some old, some new, some with clip-on aero bars, others without. I have even seen an occasional mountain bike. My personal favorite sighting is when a guy, usually in his 20s, pulls into the parking lot with a bike that is likely worth more than his car. When it comes to bikes, triathlon takes all kinds. Yes, triathlon bikes — often called simply “tri bikes” — are going to be the fastest of the bunch. They are the most aerodynamic and efficient, after all. But not every triathlete rides a tri bike: Many ride road or even
cyclocross bikes. (I ride a road bike myself, though I have designs on becoming a tri bike owner someday soon, I hope.) The bad news about road bikes in triathlon is that if you ride one, you probably are not going to be as aerodynamic or as efficient as you would be on a properly set up tri bike. They are not one and the same. But the good news is that you can make some adjustments to your ride to make it more tri-bike-like. Curious as to what those adjustments might be, I recently went to see Bart Bowen, the owner of Rebound Sports Performance and Pilates in Bend. Simply put, bike fit is what Bowen does. “A good road position (for the rider) is different than, say, a tri position,” Bowen explained of the difference between a road bike and a tri bike. “But there’s a couple happy mediums.” One of those happy mediums, Bowen said, is to keep the same position on the road bike, but add clip-on aero bars — bars with elbow pads that jut out past the handlebars on which a rider rests his or her arms, resulting in a more tucked, rather than upright, position. Simply adding the aero bars, Bowen explained, puts riders in a more aerodynamic position. See Tri / D5

S B Baseball • Tip led to arrest of suspect in Giants fan beating: The Los Angeles police chief says a tip from a parole officer led to the arrest of one of the suspects in the attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium after the rival teams’ season opener. At an afternoon news conference at the stadium, Chief Charlie Beck said the man detained early Sunday is believed to be the “main aggressor” in the March 31 beating that left Bryan Stow with brain damage. The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was among several people detained for questioning after police served search warrants. Police say he was one of two main suspects that have been sought in the case. • Doctor: Pitchers want to undergo Colon’s procedure: One of the doctors who assisted in a procedure last year on New York Yankees starter Bartolo Colon says that 10 other pitchers have expressed interest in undergoing the treatment that is being scrutinized by Major League Baseball. Dr. Leonel Liriano said Sunday in a Dominican TV interview that 10 pitchers between the ages of 21 to 37 have contacted him about the contentious medical treatment. He did not disclose the identities of the athletes. Liriano is the medical director for United States-based Regenocyte in the Dominican Republic. The company specializes in the use of stem cells for regenerative therapy. The 37year-old Colon, the 2005 AL Cy Young Award winner, was treated in April 2010 with a procedure designed to regenerate tissue in his shoulder and elbow.
Gymnastics • World gymnastics championships staying in Tokyo: The world gymnastics championships will be held in Tokyo as originally planned. The International Gymnastics Federation decided Sunday there was no reason to move worlds, the main qualifier for the 2012 Olympics in London, despite earlier concerns about high radiation levels following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. FIG president Bruno Grandi said the federation made the decision after consulting with experts who said it would be safe to go ahead with worlds from Oct. 7-16 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.
Cycling • Contador extends lead; Nieve takes 15th stage: Alberto Contador extended his already commanding lead and fellow Spaniard Mikel Nieve Ituralde won the grueling 15th stage of the Giro d’Italia on Sunday in Val Di Fassa, Italy. A member of an early breakaway, Nieve clocked 7 hours, 27 minutes, 14 seconds over the five major climbs lining the 142-mile route from Conegliano to Gardeccia Val di Fassa. Stefano Garzelli, the 2000 Giro winner, also was in the breakaway and crossed second, 1:41 behind, and Contador was third, 1:51 back.

Seeds start to fall as French Open begins The Associated Press PARIS — Marin Cilic became the first seeded player to be eliminated from the French Open, losing to Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo of Spain 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-4 Sunday in the first round. The 19th-seeded Cilic, who reached the fourth round at the Australian Open, is a former top10 player. But he had 67 unforced errors in the match and was broken five times. For Ramirez Hidalgo, it was only his fourth
TENNIS win in 15 Grand Slam tournaments. Besides reaching the fourth round at the 2006 French Open, the Spaniard lost in the first round in each of his other 13 appearances at the four biggest tournaments on the tennis circuit. Seventh-seeded David Ferrer had no such problems, advancing to the second round by de-
feating Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. On the women’s side, Sam Stosur opened her bid to return to the French Open final by beating Iveta Benesova 6-2, 6-3 in the first round. The first seeded women’s player to lose was Shahar Peer. The 19th-seeded Israeli lost to Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-1. No. 10 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia, No. 17 Julia Goerges of Germany and No. 32 Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria also advanced.

Yankees 9, Mets 3
• Indians 12, Reds 4: CLEVELAND — Asdrubal Cabrera went five for five with two homers and five RBIs as Cleveland completed a three-game sweep of Cincinnati, which, for the moment, have lost bragging rights as Ohio’s best team. Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Edinson Volquez (3-2) for the Indians, who did early damage after winning the series’ first two games with lateinning comebacks. Cabrera added a solo homer in the sixth to give Cleveland an 8-4 lead. • Yankees 9, Mets 3: NEW YORK — Derek Jeter tied the score with a two-run single that sparked an eight-run rally in the seventh inning, Alex Rodriguez drove in the go-ahead run with yet another hit after an intentional walk to Mark Teixeira and the Yankees pummeled the Mets in the finale of their weekend Subway Series. In a slump for most of the season, Jeter hit a two-run, bases-loaded single off Mike Pelfrey (3-4) that made it 3-all. • Rangers 2, Phillies 0: PHILADELPHIA — Matt Harrison took a five-hitter into the ninth inning and helped Texas avoid a three-game sweep. Harrison (4-4) struck out three, walked three and threw 117 pitches in his longest outing of the season, finishing two outs shy of his first shutout since 2009. • Rays 4, Marlins 0: MIAMI — James Shields pitched a three-hitter with a career-high 13 strikeouts and Tampa Bay avoided a three-game sweep. Shields (5-2) walked just one in his second shutout and third complete game of the season. He didn’t allow a baserunner past first base until the ninth inning and had nine strikeouts in the last four innings. • Astros 3, Blue Jays 2: TORONTO — Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer, Wandy Rodriguez pitched six solid innings and Houston held off the Blue Jays to win a series for the first time in three weeks. Houston, which had lost 11 of 14 coming in, won its first series since taking two of three from Milwaukee between April 29 and May 1. • Orioles 2, Nationals 1: BALTIMORE — Vladimir Guerrero’s two-run homer in the seventh inning spoiled Jordan Zimmermann’s stellar outing and lifted Baltimore over Washington. Through the first six innings, Zimmermann (2-5) was nearly perfect, allowing just two baserunners on a walk and a double in the second inning. He had retired 13 straight. • Tigers 2, Pirates 0: PITTSBURGH — Rick Porcello allowed one hit over eight innings and Detroit snapped a five-game losing streak. Porcello (4-2) took a no-hitter into the sixth before giving up Ronny Cedeno’s leadoff double. He struck out three and walked two in his first start in nearly two weeks. • White Sox 8, Dodgers 3: CHICAGO — Alexei Ramirez homered and drove in a career-high five runs, and the suddenly surging White Sox beat the Dodgers. Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the first inning, then added an RBI double in the third, a run-scoring single in the fourth and another RBI double in the eighth for the White Sox, who have won 11 of 15.

• Cardinals 9, Royals 8: KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Colby Rasmus drew a bases-loaded walk — his fifth free pass of the day — that forced in the go-ahead run in the 10th, and St. Louis walked 13 times in a wacky victory over the Royals. Every walk Rasmus drew was off a different pitcher. The Cardinals had 12 hits, a hit batter and reached on an error in the 4 hour, 9 minute game. • Angels 4, Braves 1: ANAHEIM, Calif. — Torii Hunter ended a home run drought of 28 games with a go-ahead shot off Derek Lowe, rookie Tyler Chatwood pitched seven strong innings and Los Angeles beat Atlanta in the rubber game of their interleague series. Chatwood (3-2) allowed a run and five hits, struck out six and walked two. Jordan Walden got three outs for his eighth save in 11 chances. • Mariners 6, Padres 1: SAN DIEGO — Felix Hernandez tied his career high with 13 strikeouts in eight dominant innings to lead Seattle over San Diego. Hernandez (5-4) allowed one run and six hits without a walk as the Mariners won their fifth straight and completed a three-game sweep. Seattle held a commanding advantage over San Diego in runs (14-2) and hits (32-14) while striking out 35 Padres batters in the series. • Giants 5, Athletics 4: SAN FRANCISCO — Emmanuel Burriss singled home the winning run in the 11th inning and San Francisco completed a three-game sweep of the cross-bay rival Oakland Athletics. Burriss’ line drive off reliever Brian Fuentes (1-6) scored speedy Darren Ford from second. Ford just beat right fielder Ryan Sweeney’s throw to the plate, sending the Giants running out of the dugout to celebrate their fifth straight victory and seventh walk-off win this season. • Diamondbacks 3, Twins 2: PHOENIX — Juan Miranda homered, Daniel Hudson had an RBI single to go with eight strong innings on the mound and Arizona beat Minnesota to complete a three-game sweep. The Diamondbacks won their sixth straight, their longest run in three seasons, and eighth in nine games to climb to .500 (23-23) for the first time since April 20. • Red Sox 5, Cubs 1: BOSTON — Tim Wakefield held Chicago to four hits in 6 2⁄3 innings, and Adrian Gonzalez had four hits of his own to lead Boston to a victory. Boston took two out of three from Chicago and has now won eight of its last nine to move onehalf game behind the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. • Brewers 3, Rockies 1: MILWAUKEE — Ryan Braun hit a two-run triple off Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez and scored on a throwing error, lifting the Brewers to a three-game sweep over Colorado. Jimenez (0-4) threw the seventh complete game of his career and allowed only two hits, but struggled to find the strike zone with five walks and a hit batter.

Bosh leads Heat over Bulls
Poulter wins final of World Match Play
By Tim Reynolds The Associated Press
MIAMI — For the second time in three games, Chris Bosh had a monster night against the Chicago Bulls. Unlike the first, this one paid off with a win. And the Miami Heat are two victories from their first trip to the NBA finals since 2006. Bosh scored 34 points, LeBron James finished with 22 points and 10 assists, and the Heat remained unbeaten at home in the postseason by beating the Bulls 96-85 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday night. Dwyane Wade added 17 points and nine rebounds for Miami, which is now 7-0 at home and handed the team that finished with the NBA’s best record its first losing streak since Feb. 5-7. Udonis Haslem sealed it with a jumper with 1:29 left, putting Miami up 93-84. Bosh scored 30 points in Game 1 against Chicago, when Miami was embarrassed 10382. The Heat haven’t lost since, and only trailed for 3:22 in Game 3. “I just wanted to be aggressive and just have some kind of imprint on this series,” said Bosh, who’s in the conference finals for the first time. “I had an aggressive Game 1, Game 2 was so-so, but we still won. But out here on
the home floor I just wanted to be aggressive and it turned out to be a good game.” A really good game: It was five points shy of his postseason career best. Carlos Boozer finished with 26 points and 17 rebounds for Chicago, which had won the first four meetings of the season with Miami. Derrick Rose finished with 20 points, but struggled from the field again, making only eight of his 19 shots. Taj Gibson had 11 off the Chicago bench. The Bulls held James and Wade to a combined 12-for-30 showing from the floor. Problem was, Bosh finished 13 for 18. “It’s definitely frustrating,” Rose said. “Our will wasn’t there tonight. They still found a way to win.” Boozer made a pair of free throws with 6:39 left to get Chicago within 78-74, the outcome clearly hanging in the balance. Minutes later, that was no longer the case — not after Miami scored nine straight to build more than enough of a cushion. Bosh and Boozer exchanged words and looks more than once on Sunday night, but Bosh ended up with the upper hand. “All I care about is winning games,” Bosh said. “And we do whatever it takes to get that.” Game 4 is Tuesday night in Miami.

Andretti, Patrick All-Star win drives up qualify for Indy Carl Edwards’ value after late attempts Stenhouse wins By Jenna Fryer
The Associated Press
The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Michael Andretti’s team finally overcame its May curse. The rain held off Sunday to give Danica Patrick a second chance, and James Jakes waved off his qualifying attempt, giving Marco Andretti one more shot to make the Indianapolis 500. Patrick and Marco Andretti took advantage of the good fortune and qualified for the centennial anniversary race at the Brickyard. Patrick posted a four-lap average of 224.861 mph after it looked like she might not even get to qualify on Bump Day. Andretti delivered an even more clutch performance in the final run of the day, going 224.628 to bump his way back onto the 33-car grid. “It was either going to be into the wall or into the show,” the 24-year-old son of the team owner said. “It was a bummer that we were in this position.” Patrick should have been the second driver out but was forced to the back of the qualifying line when the No. 7 car failed technical inspection. Michael Andretti said the team had changed a part in the rear of the car between Saturday and Sunday. Graham Rahal capitalized on the miscue by beating a downpour that forced the track to close. He came in at 224.380. “We got an early draw, so we got lucky,” Rahal said. “Obviously, Danica failed tech, so we moved up even more.” In other events on Sunday: John Force racing gets 200th victory TOPEKA, Kan. — Robert Hight gave John Force Racing its 200th victory, beating teammate Mike Neff in the Funny Car final in the NHRA Summer Nationals. Spencer Massey (Top Fuel) and Shane Gray (Pro Stock) also won. Hight had a 4.284-second pass at 264.86 mph to edge Neff. Massey won at the expense of Bob Vandergriff, who extended his NHRA record of runner-up finishes without a win to 13. F1 leader Vettel gets fourth win of season in Spain BARCELONA, Spain — Formula One leader Sebastian Vettel held off Lewis Hamilton to win the Spanish Grand Prix, edging his closest championship contender to capture his fourth victory in five races this season. The Red Bull driver took the lead for good after the second round of pit stops to beat Hamilton by 0.6 seconds and widen his advantage atop the standings to 41 points over his McLaren rival.
CONCORD, N.C. — Carl Edwards’ victory in the Sprint All-Star Race was a very, very expensive win. Not for Edwards, who claimed the $1 million prize with his first win in NASCAR’s annual showcase event. But his celebratory drive through the infield grass at Charlotte Motor Speedway tore up the front of his Ford, and rebuilding that car will be costly for Roush-Fenway Racing. That’s just a small part of it, though. Carl Edwards Edwards is in a contract year, and Saturday night’s victory likely upped his worth should he reach the free-agent market. He ranks among the elite drivers in NASCAR and it’s assumed his current deal with RFR puts him among the highest paid in the sport. NASCAR contracts are sensitive and secret, and nobody really knows exactly what anyone gets paid. The only thing that’s certain, though, is Edwards couldn’t have picked a better year to be a free agent. He’s the current Sprint Cup Series point leader, with one win and nine top-10 finishes in 11 races this season, not including the All-Star victory. He’s also got three wins in the secondtier Nationwide Series, and finished second Sunday at Iowa (related story above) after flying through the night to the event from the All-Star race. There’s zero doubt team owner Jack Roush wants to keep Edwards in his camp. Asked about his driver Saturday night, he called him “a rock star” and lauded his entertaining celebratory backflips, and his penchant for going into the stands with the fans after wins. “Some of the drivers wouldn’t go up in the stands like that after a race, and for good reason. But Carl, he’s well thought of and he’s out there doing things that other people wish they thought of first,” Roush
Canucks beat Sharks to take 3-1 series lead The Associated Press SAN JOSE, Calif. — With the sharp-passing Sedin twins, plenty of players with big shots, and a gold-medal winning goalie, the Vancouver Canucks are tough enough to beat in normal situations. That task becomes nearly impossible when they have two extra skaters on the ice. The Canucks converted three successive five-on-three power plays in a span of less than two minutes during the second period, with Sami Salo scoring twice and Ryan Kesler adding the third, to beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on Sunday in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals
N H L P L AYO F F S to take a 3-1 series lead. “We kept marching to the box, they kept scoring,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. Henrik Sedin helped set up the three goals in a span of 1:55 as the Canucks needed only 37 seconds on the three five-on-three situations to become the first team in NHL history to score three goals with a two-man advantage in the playoffs. He added another assist in the third period to set a franchise record for assists in a game, increasing his league-leading total to 19 points this postseason.
Nationwide race in Iowa NEWTON, Iowa — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. held off Sprint Cup drivers Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski to win Sunday’s NASCAR Nationwide series race in Iowa, becoming the first series regular to pick up a victory this season. Stenhouse took the lead from Edwards 233 laps into the 250-lap event at Iowa Speedway and held off the only Cup drivers in the field for his first career Nationwide win. — The Associated Press said. “And he drives the hell out of our race cars. He was the cornerstone of our organization today. He’s a draw for sponsors and a rallying point for his team.” It’s not clear, though, just where contract talks with Edwards stand. Unlike teammate Greg Biffle, who was vocal through his negotiations that he wanted a new deal with RFR, there’s almost no public discussion about Edwards. There’s talk in the garage that some of the top teams have interest in Edwards, most notably Joe Gibbs Racing, which has room to add a fourth car. But others don’t believe he has any intention of leaving RFR, and all conversation with other teams is simply testing the market and gauging Edwards’ value. Edwards dodged any consequential discussion about his contract on Saturday night, and hasn’t even indicated if staying at RFR is his first choice. “All I’ll say about that is we’re running really well right now and it’s because of Jack Roush, Ford, all these people’s hard work,” Edwards said. “Those talks are going on behind closed doors and we’ll hopefully get something done. But right now we’re running well and that is fun. “What I’m trying to do is focus on that because we have a championship to win this year. That’s the No. 1 goal.”

CASARES, Spain — Ian Poulter denied Luke Donald the top spot in the world golf rankings Sunday, beating his fellow Englishman 2 and 1 in the final of the World Match Play Championship to claim his first title of 2011. The second-ranked Donald could have risen to No. 1 for the first time, supplanting compatriot Lee Westwood if he’d won the tournament in Andalusia, but he failed to find the consistent form that swept him to the final. Poulter, who ousted Westwood in the last 16, was 1 down to his Ryder Cup teammate on three occasions in an error-strewn match, but a 45-foot putt won the 12th hole and birdies on the 14th and 16th sealed Donald’s fate. “I didn’t play my best, but I played the right shots at the right times,” said Poulter, whose 14th career title will lift him from No. 22 to inside the top 15 when the new rankings are released today. “It’s a very special day.” Poulter picked up a winner’s check for $1.14 million and became the first player to win both match play titles, having won the Accenture tournament last year. Donald won the 2011 edition of that event in Arizona in February and came into the final on a 14-match winning streak in match play, which included victories in singles and doubles at last year’s Ryder Cup. But just like he did last month — when he lost a playoff to Brandt Snedeker at The Heritage in South Carolina — Donald missed an opportunity to climb to No. 1, acknowledging fatigue had caught up with him in southern Spain. Also on Sunday: Toms hangs on to win Colonial FORT WORTH, Texas — David Toms threw both arms up in the air and a smile took over his face when he finally regained the lead at Colonial. This time, he didn’t let it get away. A day after blowing a seven-stroke advantage to go into the final round trailing Charlie Wi by one, Toms made an eagle with a wedge shot from 83 yards at the par5 11th hole to take the lead

Pettersen ends victory drought GLADSTONE, N.J. — Suzann Pettersen won the Sybase Match Play Championship, beating Cristie Kerr 1-up at Hamilton Farm to end a 20-month victory drought. Leading 1-up and with Kerr facing a 10-foot birdie attempt, Pettersen curled in a left-to-right 15-footer for birdie to seal the victory. The 30-year-old Norwegian star immediately thrust both hands skyward in celebration, took a few steps and staggered to her knees in exhaustion after playing four rounds in two days.

OSU suffers first Pac-10 series loss From wire reports
CORVALLIS — Ryan Dunn went two-for-four and the second-ranked Oregon State baseball team rallied but couldn’t overcome USC in a 4-3 loss in the series finale Sunday at Goss Stadium. Michael Miller and Brian Stamps both walked to start the bottom of the ninth, then moved to second and third, respectively, when Ryan Barnes made a sacrifice bunt. Miller scored when Kavin Keyes flew out to center on a sacrifice fly, pulling the Beavers to within one, 4-3. Ben Mount, the USC closer, however, forced Andrew Susac to ground out to shortstop, end-
ing the Beavers’ rally and the game. The series loss was the first of the Pacific-10 Conference season for the Beavers. OSU (38-14 overall, 17-7 Pac10), however, remains in first place after Arizona State lost to Washington, 3-0. The Sun Devils and UCLA are both one game back of the Beavers in the race for first place in the Pac-10. All three clubs have three remaining Pac-10 games. Oregon State visits Oregon next weekend, while Arizona State and UCLA play in Tempe. Oregon State and Oregon square off Friday night at PK Park in Eugene. First pitch is slated for 7 p.m. PDT.
Horner Continued from D1 If you win three times, all the expectations are to win, but to have the team take the title is great. Of course I’d want to win myself, but Chris was the better rider. He was stronger, and he deserved it.” Leipheimer won the race from 2007-09. Last year’s champion, Australia’s Michael Rogers, didn’t ride this year because of an illness. Garmin-Cervelo’s Tom Danielson finished 2:45 behind Horner in third place, and teammate Christian Vande Velde was fourth. Matthew Goss won the 80.2-mile final stage from Santa Clarita to Thousand Oaks, outsprinting Peter Sagan and his fellow leaders on the final lap. Goss barely edged out Sagan, who ran out of room to pass Goss along the barriers with just a few feet to go. Goss and 78 riders behind him all finished with identical times of 2 hours, 56 minutes and 39 seconds. After starting the stage north of the San Fernando Valley in Santa Clarita, the field wound through

Goss’ sprint put a little excite-
ment into a final stage that held only a foregone conclusion for Horner and Leipheimer. The RadioShack teammates all but clinched Horner’s win when they held off every challenge Saturday
during a torturous ride up Mount Baldy to the highest finish in Tour history, crossing the line with their clasped hands raised in victory. Horner has picked up most of his best results late in his career, which he intends to extend until at least 2016. He finished fourth in California last year, and his 10th-place performance at the Tour de France was the best American finish. “I see no time in my near future when I plan on retiring,” Horner said. “I believe there’s at least five good years left in my legs.” The sixth Tour of California began with unexpected snow in the Sierra Nevadas, forcing the cancellation of the opening stage around Lake Tahoe. The final seven stages went off without a hitch on various stunning vistas around the Golden State. Horner claimed the overall lead Wednesday in the Bay Area hills, pulling away from Leipheimer and Tour de France star Andy Schleck in the final two miles during a tough uphill finish. He maintained the lead through Friday’s time trial in Solvang before Saturday’s impressive mountain performance.
Cougars rally in ninth ‘60 Minutes’ report: Armstrong encouraged doping for win over Ducks By Eddie Pells
The Associated Press
From wire reports PULLMAN, Wash. — Matt Argyropoulos’ walk-off in the bottom of the ninth won the game and the series for Washington State in a back-and-forth thriller that ended in favor of the Cougars, 8-7, on Sunday afternoon at Bailey-Brayton Field. The Ducks (29-26-1, 8-16 Pac10) entered the bottom of the ninth nursing a 7-6 lead with Madison Boer (3-6) on the hill. The right-hander had Washington State down to its last out with pinch runner Kyle John-
son at third, but Adam Nelubowich drove a two-out double off the wall in right to score the game-tying run. With Nelubowich at second, Argyropoulos recorded his first hit of the day, hammering a walk-off hit into deep center field. Boer was credited with the loss, allowing two runs on four hits in 2 2⁄3 innings on the hill while striking out three. Oregon returns to action on Tuesday at Portland with first pitch set for 3 p.m. The season series between the two clubs is even at two games apiece.
UO headed to super regional after knocking off Penn State From wire reports UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The No. 11 University of Oregon softball team (42-14) celebrated its second-ever super regional bid in as many years with its 3-1 win over Penn State (31-24-1) in the NCAA regional finale Sunday afternoon at Beard Field. “I was proud of how our team played today,” Oregon head coach Mike White said. “Penn State won an emotional game last night, so we knew that we would have to play aggressively. We were diving all over the place, and trying to pick each other up. Jess (Moore) pitched her heart out, and our offense
Prep Continued from D1
Wednesday Class 5A Baseball Dallas at Mountain View, time TBA The Cougars (18-6), who won the 5A Intermountain Conference, have earned victories in 11 of their last 13 games. Mountain View enters the postseason as the No. 3-ranked team in 5A based on the OSAA’s power rankings. Senior pitcher Alex Robinett (1.35 earned-run average, 68 strikeouts in 36 1⁄3 innings) leads the Cougars. Dallas (12-14), which finished fifth in the Mid-Willamette Conference, rebounded from a 4-7 start and has won five of its last seven games. Class 5A Softball Mountain View at Hermiston, time TBA Despite winning the 5A Intermountain Conference, the Cougars will be on the road for the first round of the state playoffs. While Mountain View is just 12-11 overall, the Cougars went 8-4 against 5A competition this year. Mountain View advances to the postseason after defeating Corvallis 7-6 in a play-in game on Thursday. Hermiston, a former IMC rival, placed second in the Columbia River Conference this season and is 17-8 overall. Class 4A Baseball Gladstone at Sisters, time TBA The Sky-Em League champion Outlaws finished the regular season with a 22-3 record and the best winning percentage of any 4A team this year. Sisters, paced by the bats of Jordan Hodges (.491 batting average)
COLLEGE SOFTBALL stayed patient and knew that the hits would fall eventually.” Keeping with the weekend’s low-scoring theme, the Ducks scored all three of their runs in the sixth inning, while the Nittany Lions scored the game’s first run in the third. Looking ahead to next weekend, Oregon advances to play No. 4 seed Florida, which won the Gainesville Regional Sunday with an 11-3 win over UCLA. The returning NCAA champion Bruins won the day’s first game, 3-2, over the Gators.
and Erik Carlson (.450), enters the postseason on a roll, having won its last six games. Gladstone (16-7), runner-up in the Tri-Valley Conference, defeated Seaside 6-4 in a play-in game to advance to the postseason and has won seven of its last eight games. Class 4A Softball Madras at Sutherlin, time TBA The White Buffaloes cruised through Tri-Valley League play this season, winning the league with a 14-1 record. Apparently that was not enough to secure a first-round home playoff game. Sutherlin (14-9) finished second in the Far West League and is No. 10 in the OSAA’s 4A power rankings. The Buffs (21-5 overall), who rolled Tillamook 10-0 in the play-in round and have won 14 of their last 15 games, are No. 14. Mysteriously, North Marion, which finished third in the TVL, is 18-8 overall and lost to Madras three times this season, hosts a 4A state playoff game the same day.
Lance Armstrong’s former teammate, Tyler Hamilton, says Armstrong and other team leaders encouraged, promoted and took part in a doping program in an effort to win the Tour de France in 1999 and beyond, according to a report aired Sunday night on “60 Minutes.” Hamilton said he saw Armstrong take performance-enhancing drugs, EPO and testosterone and also saw him receive a banned blood transfusion in 2000.
Tri Continued from D1 But to really optimize that position, a triathlete can opt for a more customized fitting, using technology such as that at Rebound to get precise, individualized data used to make adjustments to various parts of the bicycle to better fit the rider. And why would a rider want to do that? To go faster, of course. Triathlons are races, after all. “For some people, just to get in the aero bars and stay in their road saddle position, that’s a start,” Bowen noted. “But if they want to optimize that and … feel more comfortable for the longer haul or get even more adaptation and get more power out of it, then they need to make that change in the hips and pelvis.” Rebound uses a software program called Retul to assess a rider’s optimal position on the bike. Bike shops, including those in Central Oregon, often offer some kind of fitting services, but Bowen said he is not aware of anyone else in the region that uses the Retul technology. In the lab, Bowen and his staff first go over with a client necessary information such as a structural analysis and injury history. Then, the bike is set up on a stand and leveled, and initial measurements are taken to create an original “blueprint” of the bike. “It’s always good to know where you’re at before you make any changes,” Bowen explained. Markers with LED sensors are placed on the rider at the ankle and the fifth metatarsal of the foot, as well as at the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist. The LED sensors send out a pulsing light that the computer can “read” while the rider pedals, creating a stick figure moving in real time on the monitor. “We can see what’s changing, how the ankle’s moving, how the elbow angle is, all at once,” Bowen said. The Rebound staff takes multiple 30-second readings and video recordings of the rider pedaling at different pressures. From the resulting data, the staff can determine which alterations to the
“I feel bad that I had to go here and do this,” Hamilton said in his first public admission of doping throughout his career. “But I think at the end of the day, like I said, long-term, the sport’s going to be better for it.” In the interview, portions of which were aired Thursday and Friday on “CBS Evening News,” Hamilton revealed other observations about the U.S. Postal team operation: • Team leaders, including doctors and managers, encouraged and supervised doping;
• Doping was going on inside the U.S. Postal team even before Armstrong joined in 1998; •Per for ma nce - en ha nci ng drugs, including EPO and human growth hormone, were handed out to cyclists in white lunch bags; •Team members were met at the airport, driven to hotels, told to lie down and give blood that could be transfused back into their bodies at a later date. Armstrong long has denied doping and has never tested positive. On Sunday, his attorney, Mark
Fabiani, released a statement deriding the CBS report. “We have already responded in great detail at www.facts4lance.com,” Fabiani said. “Throughout this entire process, CBS has demonstrated a serious lack of journalistic fairness and has elevated sensationalism over responsibility. CBS chose to rely on dubious sources while completely ignoring Lance’s nearly 500 clean tests and the hundreds of former teammates and competitors who would have spoken about his work ethic and talent.”
bike are needed, which could be anything from adjusting the seat height to widening the aero bar elbow pads. Those tweaks start at the foot, move up to the seat and finish at the aero bars. “You want to always start … from the feet up to the seat,” Bowen said. “And once we have that established, then you make sure that the aero bars are basically supporting that position the best they can.” After the adjustments are made, the rider gets back on the bike and is re-evaluated to make sure that the adjustments were done properly. The cost of a first bicycle fitting at Rebound is $250, and sessions typically last about 90 minutes to 2 1⁄2 hours. Additional bike fittings (same rider) cost $150 because the data for that rider can be applied to the subsequent bicycles. And cyclists in the market for a new bike, Bowen said, can use the data to select the ride that will fit them the best, taking out a lot of guesswork. Of course, proper bike fit extends beyond triathlon to any kind of bicycle, be it road, mountain or cyclocross. No matter what bike you roll on, it should fit properly and comfortably. “I think a lot of people think that riding a bike is painful, and it really shouldn’t be,” Bowen noted. “And if you’re comfortable, you’ll ride it more and there again, then you’re going to get more fit and you’re going to enjoy the whole experience more.” Bend triathlete Jim Rantala initially went to see Bowen for a fitting on a tandem bicycle, and he and his wife, Brenda, have since had fittings for other bikes, including Rantala’s tri bike about
10 weeks ago. Rantala, 56, who competed at the Ironman St. George triathlon race in Utah earlier this month, said that his comfort level and power improved after the fitting, and he also felt more comfortable. “When you’re comfortable, you can just ride faster,” he said. Nan Filler also raced at Ironman St. George. The 30-year-old Bend resident also did a tri bike fitting at Rebound recently because she was experiencing back pain. The data from her fitting indicated that Filler’s tri bike needed to have the seat moved lower and forward and for her aero bar extensions to be lowered. With those changes implemented, Filler’s back pain has disappeared, she said, and she has gained more power. “It feels like a completely different bike,” she said. Unlike for Rantala and Filler,
my own road bike will have to suffice in my triathlons for now. But I must confess that I find the thought of using the technology such as that at Rebound appealing in my quest to become faster and more comfortable while cycling. After all, what I would learn would still help me down the road when I am ready to purchase a tri bike. And between now and then, I can go to races, look out upon the sea of bikes in transition and know that I am not necessarily on the fastest bike, but at least on the one that fits me best.
