Long and slow, or short and fast?

By Peter Nicholas, Christi Parsons and James Oliphant McClatchy-Tribune News Service

WASHINGTON — The jobs package that President Barack Obama plans to unveil shortly after Labor Day could include tens of billions of dollars to renovate thousands of dilapidated public schools and a tax break to encourage businesses to hire new workers, according to people familiar with White House deliberations. As aides work to put together the proposal, they are also hammering out a companion plan to reduce federal budget deficits over the next decade, which Obama would share with the 12-member congressional “super committee” charged with finding long-term fixes for the growing national debt. The deficit-reduction plan would rely on some of the ideas Obama worked on in private negotiations with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, during the summer, aides said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a proposal that is still taking shape. The two-phase plan will require Obama to argue for spending more money in the short term while reducing the federal deficit over a longer period. Many economists support that combination, saying that cuts in spending should wait until the economy is stronger. But political strategists say it has been difficult to communicate that idea to voters. See Jobs / A4

Former location in park

By Scott Hammers

T

he downtown Bend Farmers Market planted new roots in the asphalt of the Mirror Pond parking lot Wednesday, just a few yards from the grassy lawn

that had put market organizers at odds with local advocates for people with disabilities. In July, the Central Oregon Coalition for Access sent a letter to city officials and market organizers claiming the market was in violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act, as the grass surface made getting around difficult and sometimes impossible for individuals using walkers and wheelchairs.

With the revocation of the market’s special use permit a possibility, market organizers elected to move, setting up in the adjacent parking lot for the first time on Wednesday. Market director Katrina Wiest stressed that the parking lot location is, for now, temporary. Wiest said the market will remain in the parking lot

for the final eight market days of the year, after which organizers will begin studying the options for a new location that meets the needs of vendors and customers. Chuck Arnold, director of the Downtown Bend Business Association and a member of the farmers market board, said the temporary location is ideal. Maintaining a visual connection between the prior market location and the new location was critical, he said, as regular marketgoers have become accustomed to seeing it in the same location week after week. “This is all speculation, but it’s kind of Business 101 — if you move, you’re going to lose a certain number of customers, because people will think you’ve closed. Unless you move right next door,” Arnold said. See Market / A4

Meteorites point to sky as source of life By Brian Vastag The Washington Post

For 50 years, scientists have debated whether the components of DNA — the molecule central to all life on Earth — could spontaneously form in space. A new analysis of a dozen meteorites found in Antarctica and elsewhere presents the

strongest evidence yet that the answer is yes. Meteorites are space rocks that have fallen to the ground, and the new report bolsters the notion that heavy meteorite bombardment of the early Earth may have seeded the planet with the stuff of life. “Meteorites may have served

as a molecular kit providing essential ingredients for the origin of life on Earth and possibly elsewhere,” write the authors of the report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. While life has not been found beyond Earth, all earthly plants and animals rely on

The Redmond School District wants everyone to know how its schools are doing, not just annually but from month to month and from one week to the next. With what it calls a performance meter, the district will use 19 pieces of information to track progress in six areas: graduation rate, academic achievement, attendance, parent and community involvement, school safety, and teacher and principal effectiveness. Details are not finalized, but the meters will likely be posted on the websites of the district and individual schools. The move represents a shift from the way schools are now measured and how results are publicized. Two of the primary measurements are the Oregon report card and the Adequate Yearly Progress, or AYP. Those measures, though, are released to schools a year after the measurements are taken. Not until fall 2011 will each school district officially discover how it performed during the previous school year. Additionally, those measures tend to reduce school or district to one word or phrase: “met,” “not met,” “outstanding.” Redmond school leaders hope the meter will provide a running commentary on school performance. If attendance at a school plunges, families will know soon after. If too few students pass the state assessment test, parents and teachers will all know by checking the meter. See Meter / A4

HEALTH INSURANCE

Rules would take aim at fine print By N.C. Aizenman The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — What would your health insurance cover if you got pregnant? How much could you expect to pay out of pocket if you needed treatment for diabetes? How do your plan’s benefits compare with another company’s? Starting as soon as March, consumers could have a better handle on such questions, under new rules aimed at decoding the fine print of health insurance plans. Regulations proposed by the Obama administration on Wednesday would require all private health insurance plans to provide current and prospective customers a brief, standardized summary of policy costs and benefits. To make it easier for consumers to make apples-to-apples comparisons between plans, the summary will also include a breakdown estimating the expenses covered under three common scenarios: having a baby, treating breast cancer and managing diabetes. Officials likened the new summary to the “Nutrition Facts” label required for packaged foods. See Insurance / A4

A section of Northpark Mall in Joplin has been made into a makeshift facility for high school students. After a tornado devastated the city in May, new classrooms were built in just 55 days inside a recently vacant department store at the back of the mall.

Three months after a twister crippled the Missouri city, classes resume By Alan Scher Zagier The Associated Press

JOPLIN, Mo. — Seniors and juniors are taking classes in a converted big-box store. Freshmen and sophomores are in a building across town. The new middle school is in an industrial park. Across Joplin, the schools are still a jumble, with books, computer monitors and unassembled furniture littering unfamiliar hallways. But as classes resumed Wednesday, students and teachers welcomed the start of another year as a return to something normal — or what passes for normal in a city crippled last spring by the nation’s single deadliest tornado in six decades. “You can’t pretend like nothing happened,” said high school English teacher Brenda White. “But everything is so new here. Every single thing that is this school is new and different.” The twister killed 160 people, injured hundreds more and destroyed thousands of buildings, including Joplin’s only public high school. Now after months of cleaning up debris, attending funerals and trying to rebuild shattered lives, it was time to get back to pop quizzes and homework assignments. “It’s going to take a while to build everything back, but books are a good start,” White said while stocking her classrooms with copies of “The Great Gatsby,” “The Kite Runner” and other literary standards, past and present. The school system was hit especially hard by the May 22 tornado. Seven students and one employee were among the victims, including a senior pulled from his car by winds on his way home from the Joplin High School graduation ceremony. Six school buildings were destroyed, including the high school. Seven other buildings were badly damaged.

Swift transformation District leaders quickly realized that they would play a huge role in Joplin’s recovery, for reasons symbolic as much as practical. They expanded the hours and locations of summer school

Students attend class in a section of Northpark Mall in Joplin. “Everyone is closer, more friendly to each other,” said senior Yainer Oviedo. in an effort to give children a reassuring routine — and their parents the time to deal with insurance agents, contractors and social service agencies. They cobbled together a hodge-podge of temporary locations for fall classes, from the old Shopko store at Northpark Mall to a former Missouri Department of Transportation office where the superintendent and other administrators now work. Rival elementary schools combined, and a middle school found space in an industrial park. Even in a corner of the country where hard work is cherished, the swiftness of the transformation was striking, White said. “I’ve always known people are strong here. But this has really brought it home,” she said. “People are so strong. They just get up, dust off and go to work.” Students arrived at the “mall school” Wednesday morning to a bevy of well-wishers holding Joplin High signs and lining the entrance road. Some teens gathered in modular classrooms, right next to a row of concretelined storm shelters. Others lingered in hallways. They raved about the school’s college-like feel. Drinks will soon be available from Joplin Joe’s coffee bar, and every student could get a free laptop thanks to a donation from the United Arab Emir-

ates worth as much as $1 million. Parents and other relatives were impressed. “It just blows your mind,” said Pamela Berry, who accompanied her 17-year-old nephew to a Tuesday night open house. “I want to come back to high school.” The start of classes also offered students a chance to reunite with classmates who had endured the same ordeal. “Everyone is closer, more friendly to each other,” said senior Yainer Oviedo, whose mother and six siblings lost their home to the storm. He now lives with a classmate and still wrestles with his own harrowing memories of huddling behind a flimsy mattress while the tornado roared overhead. “Our whole community has been through a lot,” he added. “You look at someone and automatically know what they’re going through.”

‘Greater expectations’ Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, who toured the school Wednesday, encouraged students to take advantage of their new learning environment. “I hope you use what has been given to you to lift the expectations of Joplin even higher,” he said. “While there’s been tremendous suffering, there are even

greater expectations.” Among those hoping to match those expectations was junior Christopher Jones. Unlike most years, his summer vacation couldn’t end soon enough, he said. “I was really just looking for a change,” Jones said. At East Middle School, which was relocated to a converted warehouse on the outskirts of town, students agreed that some things were unchanged: Cafeteria food still tasted terrible. Kids got lost on their way to class. And the odor of pet food from the factory across the street was gross. Younger students, too, said they relate differently to each other — and to their parents — after surviving the disaster. “It brought me a lot closer to my mom,” said Madeline Fichtner, 13, who described riding out the storm without initially knowing whether her mother was safe. School officials brought in additional counselors and trauma workers to help students and families who may still be struggling in the storm’s aftermath. “We can build buildings, but the emotional damage that this storm has caused is of a very significant concern and something we’re going to be watching closely for months, if not years,” Superintendent C.J. Huff said.

ACT deems more students college-ready By Catherine Gewertz Education Week

WASHINGTON — The proportion of American students meeting all four of the ACT’s college-readiness benchmarks continued to rise this year, driven largely by improvements in performance on the mathematics and science portions of the exam, according to data released Wednesday. The annual report from ACT examines the scores of students in the 2011 graduating class who took that college-entrance exam at some point in high school. The report shows that 25 percent of those students produced scores in English, reading, math, and science that correlate with higher chances of earning B’s or C’s in entry-level college courses. That figure has grown steadily in recent years; it was 21 percent in 2005. Much of the growth was the result of improvements in math and science. In each of those areas, the proportion of students meeting the collegereadiness benchmarks has risen 2 percentage points in the last five years. The flip side of the good news, however, was also clear: Three-quarters of U.S. students fall short of the ACT’s definition of being prepared for a university education in all four subjects. And while two-thirds met the mark in English and half did in reading, those numbers are falling or flatlining, not rising. Even the math and science scores, while rising, show a long road ahead: More than half the students who took the ACT fell short of the college-readiness benchmark in math, and an average of seven in 10 fell short of it in science. “We are optimistic that there is growth happening in the continual increase, even a tick at a time, in the overall college readiness of students. It’s a great sign, especially as the population (of ACT test-takers) gets more diverse and larger,” said Jon Erickson, the ACT’s senior vice president for educational services. “But I’ll temper that by saying we need to accelerate the pace. It will take us too long at a tick at a time.”

State challenges whittling away No Child Left Behind Walmart Supercenter - Redmond By Sam Dillon New York Times News Service

HELENA, Mont. — As hundreds of schools here and across the nation faced being labeled failures under the federal No Child Left Behind law, Montana education officials defiantly informed Washington this spring that they would stop raising testing targets as the law requires, despite warnings that doing so could cost the state millions of dollars in federal aid. But Education Secretary Arne Duncan will allow Montana to keep most of the schools off the law’s blacklist, and the state will pay no penalty. With several other Western

states also rebelling against the requirement that 100 percent of American students be proficient in English and math by 2014, some education officials and experts see signs that years of federal dominance of public school accountability may be drawing to a close. “Pretty soon all the schools will be failing in America, and at that point the law becomes meaningless,” said Larry Shumway, superintendent of public instruction in Utah. “States are going to sit and watch federal accountability implode. We’re seeing the end of an era.” It is no secret that the Obama administration dislikes many

provisions of the No Child law, which former President George W. Bush signed in 2002 and vigorously enforced, in court and with fines against states — including Texas, his own. Duncan has called the law a “slow-motion train wreck,” tried unsuccessfully to get Congress to rewrite it, and last week promised to provide waivers this fall to states that sign on to the president’s school-improvement agenda, with criteria similar to those in his Race to the Top grant competition. Duncan said he is still devising the new waiver policy, and his office denied waiver requests lodged by Arkansas and Kansas this spring.

T S Britain won’t seek to hire ex-U.S. police chief Bratton

Debt panel is feeling pressure for a deal

By John F. Burns and Alan Cowell New York Times News Service

By Jennifer Steinhauer New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — There is a joke in this town that goes something like this: If you want to guarantee that a problem does not get solved, convene a committee to study it. On the heels of a nasty showdown that led the nation to near default, a joint congressional committee is preparing to try to devise a deficit-reduction plan that both parties can live with — a goal that has eluded congressional leaders, a cadre of senators and the president of the United States. The difficulty that this new committee will have scaling the steep walls of ideology and partisan mistrust are lost on few, including its own members. “I approach this task like all tasks in Washington, with high hopes and tempered expectations,” said Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and co-chairman of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, whose six Senate members and six House members are divided evenly by party. “This committee has very serious work to do, but it should not be confused with Captain America or any other superhero.” The impediments to the committee’s work lie as much in the way its success markers are defined as in the inherent partisan rancor — and substantial financial conflicts — among its members. Under the legislation written to raise the debt ceiling this month, if the committee fails to come up with a plan by Nov. 23 to cut the federal deficit by $1.2 trillion over 10 years or if its proposals are not approved by Congress roughly a month later, the government will automatically cut spending across a vast area of its operations, including the Pentagon. But the cuts would not be made until January 2013, nearly a year after the trigger is hit, leaving members of Congress to devise ways to avoid the fallout, even as they wrestle during the middle of a presidential campaign with a main component of the deficit debate: the Bush tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of 2012. “The trigger can get pulled,” said Josh Barro, a senior fellow and federal fiscal expert at the Manhattan Institute, a conservative research organization. “But then there is a substantial amount of time to unpull the trigger. When you look at the committee picks, it is really hard-core partisan people who are not likely to compromise, and some would prefer the trigger rather than the fight over the campaign season to come up with a plan.” Privately, Republicans and Democrats are pondering which party would be more hurt by across-the-board cuts. The committee members say there has been a political shift since the Obama administration and Congress failed to come up with a more sweeping plan to deal with the nation’s debt, lending more urgency to their work.

On China trip, Biden touts strengths of U.S. economy By Michael A. Memoli McClatchy-Tribune News Service

BEIJING — Vice President Joe Biden is reaffirming the United States’ status as a world economic power at the start of a five-day visit to China. Biden arrived in Beijing on Wednesday evening, shaking off jet lag to make an unscheduled visit to an exhibition game featuring the Georgetown University men’s basketball team. On Thursday he begins the substantive portion of what is a more than weeklong tour of Asia, with the first in a series of meetings with Chinese Vice President Xi Jingping, widely expected to be the nation’s future leader. The visit was announced in January when President Barack Obama hosted Chinese President

Hu Jintao for a White House state dinner. But the meeting has taken on added significance, coming weeks after the U.S. debt-ceiling crisis and the subsequent downgrade of the nation’s credit rating by Standard & Poor’s. Biden, in a pair of interviews with Chinese media, said the “fundamental strengths” of the American economy have allowed the nation to weather recent crises. During his long career in public service, Biden told Caijing magazine, “many people have said, as some are saying now, that the U.S. is in decline. They were wrong then, and they’re wrong now.” Reflecting the concerns of America’s top foreign creditor, Biden said that the Obama administration “is deeply commit-

ted to maintaining the fundamentals of the U.S. economy that ensure the safety, liquidity and value of U.S. Treasury obligations for all of its investors.” Chinese officials have warned in the weeks following the debtceiling agreement that the U.S. needs to get its fiscal house in order. But Biden will be carrying with him U.S. demands that China take steps to continue to rebalance its economy from one focused on exports to one that is increasingly self-sustaining and service-based. Biden told the state-run People’s Daily of China that the two nations have a “cooperative and comprehensive relationship,” and to continue that, each “must be frank and honest about our disagreements.”

Deal would end standoff with protest leader By Jim Yardley New York Times News Service

NEW DELHI — The protest leader Anna Hazare appeared to strike a deal with police early Thursday that would enable him to leave a local jail and begin staging a hunger strike against corruption later in the day, according to a close aide and reports in the Indian news media. One of Hazare’s aides, Kiran Bedi, announced via Twitter that Hazare had accepted a police offer to limit any hunger strike and mass demonstration in New Delhi to 15 days. The protest would be staged at the city’s Ramlila grounds, and the Indian news media reported that the authorities had relented on Hazare’s demand that no limits be placed on the number of people allowed to attend. The apparent breakthrough came as a standoff between Hazare and the government on Wednesday had become a national political crisis. Hazare, who was arrested on Tuesday, was refusing to leave Tihar Jail — despite the police’s having already issued an order releasing him — until the authorities agreed to let him go unconditionally. The deal became public hours before daybreak in India and appeared to have been made possible after an emergency early-morning meeting between

Supporters of India’s most prominent anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare gather in a show of support near the India Gate memorial in New Delhi on Wednesday. Hazare’s top aides and the city’s police commissioner. Hazare’s refusal to leave jail seemed to jolt his supporters and tap into a visceral public disgust with official corruption. Thousands marched Wednesday in New Delhi and other areas. Before Hazare’s arrest Tuesday, at an apartment in New Delhi, he had been en route to a city park, where thousands of supporters were expected to join him as he staged a hunger strike as part of his campaign against

corruption. The police detained more than 2,600 of his supporters Tuesday but later released them. Facing growing criticism for their handling of the situation, government officials later ordered Hazare’s release, though he refused to obey. Mired in scandals for months, India’s Congress Party leaders have tried to convince the public they are cracking down on corruption, yet public skepticism remains high.

After affair with teen, rising politician in Germany resigns By Nicholas Kulish New York Times News Service

BERLIN — The career of a fast-rising conservative politician seen by German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s struggling party as a possible savior in coming state elections was derailed this week when news leaked of an affair last year with a 16-yearold girl he met on Facebook. Christian von Boetticher, 40, the successful state legislator at the top of the Christian Democratic Union’s ticket in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein,

resigned as head of the party there during a tearful news conference Sunday. He admitted to the affair, which was legal under German law, and to making a misjudgment, but insisted that he had nothing to be ashamed of because it was “a very unusual love.” It is also an unusual scandal — not just for the girl’s age, which was at the border of permissible and punishable, but because of the role played by the social-networking site. In some ways, the fact of her youth was less strange to conser-

vative voters and colleagues “than that a grown man with more important things to do would spend so much time playing around on this network with nothing better to do than trade messages with a young girl,” said Rudolf Koetter, director of the Center for Advanced Ethics and Science Communications at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Long before news of the affair became public, colleagues expressed concerns that Boetticher dallied on the site too much, sharing information about his social

life in updates the party might have preferred remained private. He posted about polo parties and expensive bottles of Brunello di Montalcino wine he had just opened. Der Spiegel magazine reported that he had skipped a political discussion to watch a lunar eclipse, then posted about it on his wall. According to Boetticher, the girl’s parents as well as his friends knew about the relationship. The girl, now 17, who has not been named, defended her former lover in newspaper interviews.

LONDON — Britain’s brief exploration of the possibility of appointing a former New York City police commissioner to the country’s top police post has ended with the government settling on a short list of four senior police commanders — all of them British nationals. The appointment to fill the vacant post of commissioner at Scotland Yard is expected to be made within two weeks, hastened by a sense of urgency after the rioting that convulsed many cities and towns last week. The position opened up last month when the two top officers at Scotland Yard resigned in the phone-hacking scandal that had shaken the nation for weeks before the rioting. Ahead of the riots, Prime Minister David Cameron proposed that the job to go to William Bratton, who gained a reputation as a formidable crime buster during his time as police commissioner in Boston and Los Angeles as well as New York City. But Cameron’s preference ran into strong opposition from one of the most powerful figures in his cabinet, Home Secretary Theresa May, who cited the Scotland Yard chief’s responsibilities for national security issues Wednesday as her main ALWAYS STIRRING UP SOMETHING GOOD Serving Central Oregon Since 1975

reason for her decision to exclude foreigners as candidates. May’s responsibilities involve frequent contact with the country’s top police officers, several of whom had spoken out strongly against an American’s taking a job that centers on overseeing the 32,000 police officers in London, as well as exercising some powers over national policing. The officers had asserted, in some cases bluntly, that Britain had little to learn from the United States, with its far higher incidence of murder, a more prevalent gang and drug culture, and a tradition of more aggressive policing. Faced with such stiff opposition, Cameron began backing away from his plan to appoint Bratton. Last week, he suggested instead that Bratton come to Britain in the fall as an unpaid consultant, a suggestion the American has accepted. The issue of who runs Scotland Yard has been caught up in the bitter debate now under way in Britain about the police’s handling of the rioting, with the Cameron government and top police officers skirmishing publicly over the hesitant tactics used by riot squads in the opening 48 hours of the mayhem.

Insurance Continued from A1 “If you’ve ever had trouble understanding your choices for health insurance coverage ... this is for you,” Donald Berwick, a top official at the Department of Health and Human Services, said at a news conference announcing the proposal. “Instead of trying to decipher dozens of pages of dense text to just guess how a plan will cover your care, now it will be clearly stated in plain English. ... If an insurer’s plan offers subpar coverage in some area, they won’t be able to hide that in dozens of pages of text. They have to come right out and say it.” Industry representatives said complying could prove onerous for insurers. “Since most large employers customize the benefit packages they provide to their employees, some health plans could be required to create tens of thousands of different versions of this new document — which would add administrative costs

Jobs Continued from A1 Obama pushed the idea Wednesday during a stop in Alpha, Ill. “Yes, some of these things cost money,” he said. “The way we pay for it is by doing more on deficit reduction.” Obama promised during his three-day bus tour of rural towns in the Midwest that he would present a jobs plan when Congress returns from its August hiatus. In doing so, he adopted a more combative tone than he generally showed during the weeks of debate this summer over raising the national debt limit. At every stop on the tour, the president issued a challenge to Republicans: Work together on a bipartisan effort to expand U.S. employment or take the blame for blocking efforts to improve the economy. “What is needed is action by Congress. It’s time for the games to stop. It’s time to put country first,” he said at a stop in Cannon Falls, Minn. And in Peosta, Iowa, after outlining measures he’s already proposed, Obama said, “We could do even more if Congress is willing to get in the game.” Republican lawmakers signaled Wednesday that they are unlikely to embrace any new spending. “We must put an end to the policy uncertainty constantly being driven by this administration,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., wrote in a memo to colleagues. “That means stopping the discussions of new stimulus spending with money that we simply do not have.” The elements of Obama’s plan remain under debate. But backers of the school renovation plan and the tax credit for hiring new workers think the proposals could attract Republican support. At the same time, they think that if the debate becomes a public confrontation, the ideas would give Obama the upper hand in a battle for voters. Obama’s tone may reflect les-

Meter Continued from A1 By design, the meter includes performance by students, parents and staff, according to Jon Bullock, the district’s director of strategic planning. “We wanted to create a metric that everyone in the school community could see themselves in. Everybody has a role in ensuring our kids get a great education,” Bullock said. Both the state report cards and AYP use several sources of data, from test scores to graduation rates. Redmond will lay out those sources of data in the meter, but the district will also expand on that by adding measurements of parental involvement in schools and how successful teachers and principals are. The district has not finalized exactly how it will make every measurement. Teams of district staff members are working on ways to measure teacher and principal effectiveness. That kind of group effort heartened Jessica Knieling, the legal, labor and employment services director at the Oregon School Boards Association. Districts across the state increasingly use available data to analyze how schools are performing. The Redmond meter, though, may be a step further than most districts have gone. “It sounds like they’ve really exploded that opportunity,” Knieling said. Though not every measure in

without meaningfully helping employees,” Robert Zirkelbach, press secretary for the industry group America’s Health Insurance Plans, said in a statement. Insurance shoppers would also have to keep in mind that their actual premiums could change after they finalized their application, particularly in the case of plans for individuals, which can continue to adjust benefits based on detailed analysis of members’ health history over the next three years. The regulation, which is subject to a 60-day public-comment period, essentially fleshes out details of a mandate established by the health care law. But it also clarifies a question that the law left somewhat ambiguous: How soon into the application process can shoppers get the summary from insurers? The regulations would require insurers to provide the summary on request, rather than waiting until someone applies for a policy or pays an application fee, a position that drew praise from consumer advocates.

sons learned in the debt ceiling fight. Many Democrats felt he made a mistake in seeking a deal with Republican adversaries who were determined not to give him one. In the coming months, aides said, Obama still plans to push for bipartisan support. But, they said, if Republicans don’t go along, he will take his case to voters, rather than again become bogged down in protracted negotiations. “He’ll take the case to the public about what they are stopping — and why,” said one senior administration official. “I like the optics of it,” said Jared Bernstein, a former administration economics adviser and a proponent of the school rehab program. “It’s the public school in your community, not a bunch of folks on a distant highway.” Supporters estimate that each $1 billion in school construction work would generate up to 10,000 jobs. A $50 billion program, for example, would underwrite half a million jobs by that calculation. The average U.S. school building is 40 years old, and many are suffering from neglect — poor ventilation, energy inefficiencies and mold. A report by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 2009 gave a grade of “D” to the nation’s public school facilities. The proposal for a tax break for new hires would come in the form of a new tax credit based on the change in employment from the beginning of the year to the end. A business that expanded its payroll from 100 to 102 workers, for example, would get a tax credit for the two new employees. Obama has been under mounting pressure to take stronger steps to curb unemployment. So far, the White House has put out a series of proposals — trade deals, a patent overhaul and a modest amount of public works spending — that have failed to spark much enthusiasm. “If it’s more of the same,” one Democratic senator said of the patent proposal, “that’s not a jobs bill.”

the meter is finalized, the district will use it this year, Bullock said. Some of the data are the district’s own design, and have been finalized. Redmond schools, for example, will measure community involvement by reporting the percentage of parents who attend parent-teacher conferences and the participation rate on district surveys.

Many updates planned There will be frequent updates, Bullock said, though how many is uncertain. After each round of state assessment testing, the district and schools will update each meter. The meters are meant to make the district’s performance transparent to everyone who wants to know. Much of the data that will appear in each meter are already available, but often buried deep inside spreadsheets. Graduation rates are included in AYP, but parents often only see whether a school meets or does not meet overall goals. The meter will bring that information to the forefront, including how many students are attending school regularly and the percentage of students passing state tests. “We’re not trying to replace or invalidate (state or federal reports). We’re trying to help staff and the community see our progress,” Bullock said. Patrick Cliff can be reached at 541-633-2161 or at pcliff@bendbulletin.com.

NIGERIA

Militant threat growing, with al-Qaida’s help By Adam Nossiter New York Times News Service

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — A shadowy Islamist insurgency that has haunted northern Nigeria — surviving repeated, bloody efforts to eliminate it — appears to be branching out and collaborating with al-Qaida’s affiliates, alarming Western officials and analysts who had previously viewed the militants here as a largely isolated, if deadly, menace. Just two years ago, the Islamist group stalking police officers seemed on the verge of extinction. In a heavy-handed assault, Nigerian soldiers shelled its headquarters and killed its leader, leaving hundreds dead and outmatched members of the group, known as Boko Haram, struggling to fight back. Now, insurgents strike at the Nigerian military, the police and opponents of Islamic law in near-daily assaults and bombings, using improvised explosive devices that can be detonated remotely and bear the hallmarks of al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, Western officials and analysts say. The fear is that extremists bent on jihad are spreading their reach across the continent and planting roots in a major, Western-allied state that had not been seen as a hotbed of global terrorism. Boko Haram has met and trained with al-Qaida affiliates outside the country, officials and analysts in the United States and Nigeria say, and the group has begun waging a propaganda campaign that

Market Continued from A1 Wheelchair-using customers gave the move mixed reviews. Blair Friedstrom, 64, said she wasn’t terribly concerned about the outcome when she heard a move was possible. She’s pushed herself around the market before with some difficulty, but more often allows her husband, Dave Friedstrom, 67, to push her while she carries their purchases on her lap. “I wasn’t for moving in the first place; I was for staying on the grass,” Blair Friedstrom said. For Sarah Schoenberg and mother Marci Schoenberg, the move to the parking is a major change. Marci Schoenberg said her daughter has enjoyed coming to the market to pick up strawberries, but the soft, uneven surface and electri-

Why? I believe they are making efforts to reach out to the global terrorism network.” The government of Nigeria appears to have only a shaky grasp of how to confront the threat, responding with such a broad, harsh crackdown that many residents see the military as more of a danger than Boko Haram. About 140 people have died in the violence since January, according to Amnesty International, including dozens of civilians killed by the military. Several dozen civilians were killed in June when bombs were hurled into the rudimentary outdoor beer parlors that exist furtively on the Christian-minority

fringes here. Shariah law exists in this overwhelmingly Muslim region, but in a relatively loose form. Not all women are veiled, and beer and wine can be obtained — apparently an affront, authorities here say, to the group’s goal of imposing strict Islamic law in this country’s restive and impoverished north. Boko Haram’s militants fade into the warrens of sandy alleys, protected, officials say, by supporters in the population and even in the security services. The brutal Nigerian military tactics — shoot first, ask questions later — are creating more sympathizers on the ground, analysts and residents here suggest. “You are Boko Haram!” said Saude Maman, recounting how soldiers yelled at her husband July 9 after a patrol vehicle was bombed and the military cordoned off Kaleri, a district of low cement houses and courtyards.

cal cords strung across the grass would snag the small wheels on the front of her wheelchair, making it essential for Sarah to bring someone along to assist her. With the market now on a hard surface, she’ll be able to visit on her own and stay as long as she likes, Marci Schoenberg said. “She would always go straight to get her berries, and then leave instead of bugging around,” she said. “So we’re thrilled with this.” For vendors, the move required some small adjustments. Matthew Dial of Crazy Dave’s Ginger Brew said he had some concerns about the loss of parking, although many of his regular customers walk or bike to the market. The move eliminates close to two-thirds of the 93 spots in the Mirror Pond lot, but Dial expects market visitors will adapt quickly. “Change is inevitable, right?” he said. “I think it’ll be a great thing as we all get used to it. It’ll be fine.” Alan Rosseau from Pine Mountain Ranch said the move

makes things easier for him. With his booth in the parking lot, he’ll no longer have to drag heavy ice chests filled with buffalo, yak and other exotic meats across the grass to set up. Rosseau said the new location could be uncomfortably warm on the hottest days of the year. While the grass location was roughly 60 percent shaded by trees, the parking lot is in full sun, Rosseau said, and could get extremely hot on a bright, sunny day with heat radiating up from the asphalt. Kim Kambak of “The Last Stand,” a Prineville produce farm, anticipated just such a situation and took extra measures to protect her crops from wilting Wednesday. Kambak added cold water and icepacks to the bottom of the buckets she uses to display

When her husband denied it, “they dragged him to the courtyard and shot him,” said Maman, sitting with a group of women in front of a scorched house. Four of them said they had lost their husbands that night. Last year, after dozens of Muslims were killed in the city of Jos, a leader of al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb vowed to help train and supply Nigerian Muslims with weapons to “respond against the aggression of the Christian minority,” in a statement published on Islamist websites. He also promised to help avenge the killing of Boko Haram’s leader in 2009. Andrew Lebovich, a researcher at the New America Foundation who follows AQIM, said the improvised explosive devices that Boko Haram had been using were an AQIM trademark, echoing a common argument made by Western officials. Another analyst with connections to Western intelligence operatives said that Boko Haram members had even told intermediaries that “our leaders are in Mali,” a country where the group has received training from al-Qaida affiliates, one U.S. official said. Gen. Carter Ham, the head of the United States Africa Command, told The Associated Press that there were also signs that Boko Haram and AQIM wanted to establish a “loose partnership” with al-Shabab, the militant group that controls much of southern Somalia and bombed World Cup watchers in Uganda last year. Such a collaboration “would be the most dangerous thing to happen not only to the Africans, but to us as well,” he said.

Kambak said she continues to be surprised by how slow Bend has been to address accessibility issues and welcomes the move to the parking lot. “It’s a compassionate society that plans for all people, so I’m OK with having a little wilted lettuce,” she said.

In Egypt, a new kind of TV chef By Leila Fadel The Washington Post

CAIRO — Only in the new Egypt could Ghalia Alia Mahmoud have become a celebrity. A veiled woman from a poor neighborhood, she cooks in tin pots with no handles, on propane burners lit with a match, in a kitchen without measuring cups. She uses simple, cheap ingredients such as beans, pasta and vegetables, all she can afford. In the old Egypt, Mahmoud worked as a maid. But that was before Jan. 25, the beginning of the upheaval in which the destitute and the affluent stood shoulder to shoulder in Cairo’s Tahrir Square to force the ouster of a dictator and the end of a system that celebrated the elite while a huge underclass barely subsisted. Mahmoud’s rise was the inspiration of Mohamed Gohar, the founder of a new television station named for the day the revolution began. He plucked the 33year-old from his sister’s kitchen, where she had been employed as a cook, and tasked her with teaching Egyptinas to prepare dishes they can acutally afford. With humor and down-home savings, Mahmoud has done it all with ease, becoming an unlikely symbol of a movement aimed at preserving the spirit of change and social justice in this country of more than 80 million people. “This channel is letting Egyptians see themselves,” said Gohar, a media veteran and founder of Channel 25, where the cooking show offers niche audiences an alternative to the more popular soap operas broadcast during the long days of Ramadan, the holy month when Muslims fast from dawn to dusk. On her show, Mahmoud cooks in a kitchen that looks like her own at home, whipping up homemade yogurt and the fava-bean mash known as ful. She’s tasked with making a meal that could feed a hungry family for just $4; she does it with ease, as homespun as Rachael Ray, who hosts the Food Network’s travel show “$40 a Day.” “All women can cook. They’re smart, and they can do anything if they try,” Mahmoud tells viewers. At home, she feeds 15 people from her immediate and extended family on an income that even now does not exceed $200 a month. She cooks meat just once

Police: School bomb plot aimed for mass casualties By Mitch Stacy The Associated Press

Ghalia Alia Mahmoud, 33, is a break-out star in Egypt, where she hosts a live cooking show. She makes meals that could feed a hungry family for just $4 with ease and humor. a week, because that’s all she and her husband, a mini-bus driver, can afford; on the show, meat is prepared only on Fridays. Growing up, she dreamed of getting married and being driven to her wedding in a new Mercedes. Instead, she ended up in a beat-up Fiat more than 20 years old. Her father died when she was a toddler; she and her eight siblings went to work as teenagers to provide for the family. A cousin went to college, but without connections he ended up working at a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet. On camera, Mahmoud is genuine and bubbly. She measures out ingredients in cheap plastic cups and buys vegetables for the show at the market in her poor neighborhood of Waraa. She wears fuchsia jackets and polka-

dot aprons; her face is plump and inviting. She reminds people of their favorite aunt, and in less than two weeks her popularity has skyrocketed. Her Facebook page — which had to be set up by a producer, Habiba Hesham, because Mahmoud can’t afford the Internet or a computer — has drawn nearly 4,000 followers in less than two weeks. Hesham sees her as a future Oprah Winfrey, a poor girl who became an American icon. Children ask her questions and tell her they love her. Men propose. And someone set up a separate Web page calling for her to be president. Last week, chic women in a Mercedes, the kind of women who used to look right through her, called to her from their car.

“Mrs. Ghalia, how do we make lentil soup?” they asked. She smiled. The world was changing for her. It is the subtle messages on her show that carry bigger lessons than the food. She offers to teach recipes to Coptic Christians who abstain from meat and dairy products during their time of fasting. She said she does it to prove that heightened sectarian tensions, which she believes are stirred up by the government, don’t exist in Egyptian neighborhoods. She is no longer unseen. “The government only treated the creme de la creme with respect, and the rest of us were invisible,” she said after a show this week. “I have so much hope that for my two girls, the country will be different.”

Meteorites Continued from A1 Two of the meteorites in particular, called Murchison and Lonewolf Nunataks 94102, contained a trove of nucleobases, including those also found in DNA. But these meteorites also held an extraterrestrial secret: related but exotic nucleobases never seen before, said Michael Callahan, the NASA scientist who analyzed the space rocks. Analysis of dirt and ice found near the meteorites showed no evidence of these exotic nucleobases. Since the 1960s, other scientists have reported nucleobases in meteorites, but concerns about contamination always hung over those findings, said Max Bernstein, a NASA scientist who has studied organic molecules in meteorites but was not involved in the current study. The detection of the exotic nucleobases, and their absence from surrounding material, helped rule out contamination in this study, said Callahan. Bernstein said the study’s thoroughness gave him confidence in its conclusions. “I don’t think it’s contamination,” he said. In laboratory experiments, Callahan and colleagues showed how the nucleobases could have formed inside meteorites. Simple chemical reactions involving ammonia, water and hydrogen cyanide — all ingredients found in meteorites — produced the wide range of nucleobases the scientists found in the space rocks. “It would be awfully coincidental if our laboratory chemistry produced the same things we saw in the meteorites,” said Callahan. Scientists have also found other building blocks of life —most notably amino acids, the links that form proteins — inside meteorites. While Bernstein said that it’s impossible to discern whether the first life on Earth was built on chemicals that fell from the sky, that possibility is now stronger. “These molecules are at the core of life’s blueprints,” Bernstein said of the nucleobases. “It’s possible that the presence of these molecules in meteorites made us what we are today.”

TAMPA, Fla. — Police were already keeping an eye on 17-year-old expelled student Jared Cano when they were tipped off that he was allegedly planning to bomb his old high school when classes resumed. In his apartment, they found shrapnel, plastic tubing, timing and fuse devices that he was amassing in a plot he intended to be worse than the Columbine mass killings, police said Wednesday. Before Tuesday’s discovery, Cano has been arrested several times, most recently accused of breaking into a house and stealing a handgun, Tampa police said. He had a court-ordered curfew and was on a police watch list. Officers checked up on him from time to time. “We’ve been very, very familiar with him,” police Maj. John Newman said. Besides the bomb-making materials, officers said they also found a journal with schematic drawings of rooms inside Freedom High School and statements about Cano’s intent to kill specific administrators and any students who happened to be nearby next week. His juvenile arrests included burglary, carrying a concealed weapon, altering serial numbers on a firearm and drug possession. None had stuck. They had been either dismissed or no action had been taken, beyond putting his name on the police watch list. The school scheme was mapped out minute-by-minute and he wanted to cause more casualties than the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, which killed 13 before the two shooters killed themselves, said Police Chief Jane Castor. Police and the school system “were probably able to thwart a potentially catastrophic event, the likes of which the city of Tampa has not seen, and hope-

fully never will,” Castor said. He also had a marijuanagrowing operation, police said. On his Facebook page, he says he attends the “University of Marijuana,” where he is studying “how to grow weed.” Principal Chris Farkas and other administrators knew Cano, too. He’d been expelled in April 2010. Farkas said Tuesday that Cano likely would have been “red-flagged” as soon as he stepped on campus and probably would not have been able to pull off his plan. Farkas said he is accustomed to all sorts of threats at a school of 2,100 on a large campus in the northern suburbs. Still, he was spooked about what might have been. “My first response was shock,” he said. “I wanted to see if it was a real threat.” “Once I found out and saw the information and saw what was taken from the apartment complex, that was when the reality and the fear set in that this was a real situation,” he said. The St. Petersburg Times reported that prosecutors at a hearing Wednesday said that when Cano was arrested he repeated his plan to detonate a bomb and cause mass casualties at Freedom, which opened in 2002 and was named to honor the victims of 9/11. Cano tried to speak when he appeared before a judge but was quickly hushed by a public defender standing beside him. “The plot wasn’t ...” Cano said, before the public defender stopped him and told the judge that “he has no comment,” according to the Times. Police told Farkas that Cano worked alone. Parents of every student got a recorded call informing them about Cano’s arrest, said the principal of the high-performing school built to handle the overflowing northern suburbs in an area some locals refer to as New Tampa.

Northwest Alaska: American oil’s new frontier By Steven Mufson

Wanted: a plan to send humans to the stars

The Washington Post

By Dennis Overbye

WAINWRIGHT, Alaska — To archaeologist Richard “Rick” Reanier, the 10-foot-high mound on a sandy spit on the coast of northwest Alaska was no mere pile of sand. Circling in front, he found the top of an old kerosene tin. Around the side, he turned over a rusty door from a nearly century-old cast-iron stove. Brushing away some sand, he uncovered the ruins of an entrance corridor to an Inupiat house made of sod and driftwood. Beyond this stretch of beach lies the vast Chukchi Sea, stretching from eastern Siberia to the Alaskan coast on the edge of the Arctic. For centuries, Native Alaskan Inupiat have roamed these shores hunting bowhead whales, bearded seals, walruses and caribou. Now Shell Oil is also hunting in the Chukchi Sea. This pristine area inside the Arctic Circle is the next frontier for offshore oil drilling in the United States. The Interior Department estimates that the Chukchi Sea could hold as much as 12 billion recoverable barrels of oil, about half of current U.S. proved reserves. Shell agrees, and some in Washington are inclined to support the company at a time of soaring energy costs. Even though it has not drilled a single hole yet, Shell has spent $2.1 billion to acquire Chukchi leases, plus almost $2 billion to collect seismic data, study the coast and refurbish ice-breaking ships for drilling 70 miles offshore here and in the Beaufort Sea next summer. Reanier, working under a contract with Shell, is identifying cultural sites to be avoided if and when a pipeline comes ashore. “If you don’t know where they are, you can’t protect them,” he said, marking the location of the sandy mound. Two decades ago, a handful of wells were drilled in the Chukchi Sea, but oil companies didn’t think it was worth developing. Now prices have soared, and Shell thinks there is more recoverable oil there than previously thought. “There is a prize over there,” says Pete Slaiby, vice president of Shell Alaska.

New York Times News Service

But oil development could threaten the sea mammals the Inupiat people hunt for food. Several lawsuits have been filed to get government agencies to block Chukchi drilling. Alaska Natives worry that the mere noise of drilling would disrupt the feeding and migration patterns of bowhead whales, beluga, walruses and seals. The draft of a study done for Shell suggests that seismic surveys have already silenced walruses, or frightened them off to other feeding grounds. “Our culture revolves around the ocean,” Mae Hank, an outspoken resident of Point Hope, to the south of the village of Wainwright, says tearfully. “The ocean is very sensitive.” The drilling moratorium after the Gulf of Mexico spill last year put Shell’s plans on ice for a time and heightened anxiety about how Shell could deal with an Arctic spill. And in the past week, a 1,300-barrel oil spill at a Shell platform in the North Sea aroused drilling foes. Coast Guard Rear Adm. Paul Zukunft said recently that dispersants wouldn’t work in icy water, that the Arctic doesn’t have the same oil-chomping microbes the gulf has and that the nearest Coast Guard response vessel is 1,200 miles away. Whereas thousands of workers flocked to the Gulf Coast to fight the spill there, there are only a handful of rooms at the tiny Olgoonik Hotel here. The window for drilling here is short, from July through October. The rest of the year, temperatures drop as low as 56 degrees below zero and the Chukchi Sea is largely frozen. So Shell is pressing to line up regulatory approvals for the Chukchi as well as the Beaufort Sea to the northeast. “Even in areas that are in theory open to production, we still face debilitating regulatory red tape,” Marvin Odum, president of Shell in the Americas, said in a speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington on July 28. Odum, who has made several trips to Alaska to reassure Alaska Natives, said the lease sale was “in effect an invitation from the government” but lamented that Shell had “been strung along by regulatory and legal barriers.” Shell’s efforts have become a cause celebre in Washington. In June, the House passed a measure that would force the Environmental Protection Agency to

speed up permit decisions and prohibit the EPA’s Environmental Appeals Board from hearing challenges to air permits needed by drill ships. But Rep. Henry Waxman, Calif., ranking Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, says that delays have been caused by multiple revisions in Shell’s permit applications. Shell needs about 10 permits for each of the three wells it hopes to drill next summer in the Chukchi Sea. It has obtained one from the Army Corps of Engineers for a drilling structure and one from the EPA to discharge drilling fluids; it awaits others from the EPA, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Coast Guard, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement. Slaiby says “we have to bat 1.000 to be ready to go.” President Barack Obama appears inclined to go ahead with Chukchi exploration, provided there are safeguards to prevent or limit any spill. The president has established an interagency group to streamline permitting in Alaska. And he has endorsed oil development in the National Petroleum Reserve, which lies along the probable 280-milelong route that would link a Shell pipeline to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, which carries oil south from Prudhoe Bay.

Spill prevention Despite Shell’s extensive preparations and assurances, the mere thought of a spill is daunting. Much of the Chukchi is shallow, so Shell’s wells are in water only 150 feet deep, the company points out. It also says that the pressure in the reservoirs is lower and easier to manage than in the Gulf of Mexico. Its blowout preventers would have two blind shear rams, instead of the customary one; the rams are designed to cut through and seal steel drill pipe. Yet in its revised exploration plan submitted in May, Shell said that the worst-case spill — while a “very low likelihood” — could reach 23,100 barrels a day, nearly half the rate of BP’s gulf spill. A Canadian government study said bad weather would prevent any spill response one out of five days in June, the mildest month, and two out of three days in October, the end of the open-water season. The company, however, has refurbished a ship called the Kulluk whose conical hull is designed for Arctic conditions. Positioned between the Chuckchi and Beaufort seas, the Kulluk could reach the drill site and complete a relief well in 34 days. A tanker capable of holding half a million barrels could be on hand within 24 hours, Shell says; that would store the first 20 days of a leak until another tanker could arrive. A nearby barge would also be able to store oil. And a capping stack like the one used to stop the BP spill last year would be warehoused on land between the Chukchi and Beaufort seas.

lagoon behind Wainwright, Shell has already stored 18 yellow and blue containers with boom for oil spills and a handful of small boats to spread them. Shell is also collecting scientific data, an answer to environmental groups that argue more research needs to be done. In addition to hiring Reanier, Shell has deployed small teams of hydrologists, soil experts and naturalists to scout the shoreline. Two tiny antennae on a bluff generate information about currents by bouncing highfrequency radar off the water surface. The company has dropped buoys the size of medicine balls offshore to collect more information about the currents, which often go one way on the surface and the opposite way below.

Signs of life Standing beside Reanier on the beach, the calm sea in one direction and soggy brownishgreen tundra in the other appear endless. Aside from a few caribou tracks and sea birds, there are few signs of life — except for swarms of mosquitoes. A pair of hydrologists working for Shell walks nearby, measuring the shape of the shoreline as currents deposit sand and rich black muck inside a lagoon. After a while, a helicopter chartered by Shell drops Reanier farther down the coast, where he pokes around some more sod houses. He finds the bottom of a beer bottle and jots down a pattern and some numbers from it. He later goes online and finds that the bottle was probably produced by an Owens Illinois plant in Charleston, W.Va., in 1933. The nearest settlement is the ramshackle Inupiat village of Wainwright, population 540, named for a lieutenant who came here on an 1826 expedition. A skinned walrus head sits drying on a porch there. A caribou carcass is perched awkwardly on another. Strips of seal dry in the summer sun. Boats, pickup trucks and four-wheel-drive vehicles are parked helter-skelter amid the homes of wood and corrugated metal. People chat on an open radio line, trading the mundane details of life 72 miles from Barrow, the nearest town. In the distance sits an abandoned early-warning station built when the Air Force worried about a Soviet attack. Now, all that guards the town are rows of snow fences that prevent drifts from burying homes during the long, sunless winters.

Support for development “You have to think of your country, like that president said,” says the village mayor, Enoch Oktollik, struggling to recall the name of John F. Kennedy. Oktollik, who maintains boilers and does other handy work, says that more than half the people in Wainwright are unemployed. They might be able to find work supporting the oil companies. Though people here talk about protecting their subsistence way

of life, they rely on planes and ships for some supplies. Those shipments are expensive. A new port would reduce the cost, Oktollik says. Bob Shears, a local contractor, estimates that building a road costs $1 million a mile and buying gasoline, even with subsidies, costs about $7 a gallon. The Olgoonik Corp., the village company that runs the hotel and store, has printed a slick brochure with a vision for a port and encampments for oil workers. “They smell money,” says resident Frank Bester Jr. But there is uncertainty among the Alaska Natives along the coast, especially further south in Point Hope but even in Wainwright. Oktollik asks, “Are we willing to risk our subsistence way of life? ... We don’t have gardens to grow vegetables, or potatoes or tomatoes.” Bester says that he’s “both for and against” oil development. The Chukchi and the tundra are Wainwright’s lifelines. Recently, after a Shell helicopter shuttling scientists along the coast landed, Oktollik rushed up to the pilots to make sure they weren’t frightening caribou spotted to the north. Yet change is probably coming to Wainwright in any case. Climate change is altering the ice melt and could change migration patterns. It could also turn the Arctic into a shipping channel; last year the first commercial cargo trip was made, carrying iron ore from Norway to China. One night recently, Muriel Panik, a 34-year-old single mother who has attended the tribal college in Barrow, said that oil development would be good for jobs and that she wants her own daughter to do something different. She doesn’t want big changes in Wainwright, but she recognizes they could come about anyway as video games transfix the village’s young people and climate change threatens its fasteroding shoreline. “The older generation says this is the last frontier,” she says. “I say this is the next frontier.”

Alpha Centauri or bust. The government agency that helped invent the Internet now wants to do the same for travel to the stars. In what is perhaps the ultimate startup opportunity, DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, plans to award some lucky, ambitious and starstruck organization roughly $500,000 in seed money to begin studying what it would take — organizationally, technically, sociologically and ethically — to send humans to another star, a challenge of such magnitude that the study alone could take 100 years. The awarding of that grant, on Nov. 11 — 11/11/11 — is planned as the culmination of a yearlong DARPA-NASA effort called the 100-Year Starship Study, which started quietly last winter and will include a three-day public symposium in Orlando, Fla., on Sept. 30 on the whys and wherefores of interstellar travel. The agenda ranges far beyond rocket technology to include such topics as legal, social and economic considerations of interstellar migration, philosophical and religious concerns, where to go and — perhaps most important — how to inspire the public to support this very expensive vision. The DARPA plan has generated buzz as well as befuddlement in the labs, pubs, diners and websites that ring NASA centers both physically and virtually, where the dream of space travel has never died and where a few stubborn bands of scientists and engineers, fueled by science fiction dreams and prophecies, are designing spacecraft that could cross interstellar space, incubating a technology and preserving it for the day when it will be used. “If you want to have a hobby, why can’t it be designing an interstellar spacecraft?” said Andreas Tziolas, who teaches at the University of Alaska and directs Project Icarus, a worldwide volunteer effort to design a spacecraft that could carry a scientific probe to a nearby star — perhaps Alpha Centauri, 4.4 light-years from here — in a trip that would take less than 100 years. “This is what we do,” said Louis Friedman, former executive director of the Planetary Society, in Pasadena, Calif., which bills itself as the world’s largest public space organization.

Many scientists wonder if life, especially intelligent life, exists beyond Earth. Some day, the interstellar dreamers vow, the life out there will be us. People like Tziolas say the technology already exists or will soon exist to send instruments and perhaps even people to nearby stars, although a human flight could cost hundred of trillions of dollars. The halfmillion dollars DARPA will award is not enough to build a starship or even to buy a modest office in which to imagine one — but it is enough to start serious fundraising and, perhaps, to invite ridicule from critics of government spending. An actual human launching is at least a couple of centuries away and, barring the invention of Star Trek-like warp drives, could take additional centuries to complete. Whoever goes on such a journey will not be coming back. But there are plenty of reasons that humans will eventually summon the political will to make the trip, scientists say, if not for human restlessness that has taken us out of the caves and across the oceans, then to escape being wiped out when the killer asteroid appears or the sun boils the oceans, which it will do in a couple of billion years. Another lure could be the discovery of a habitable planet elsewhere, something that could happen in the next few years through the efforts of NASA’s Kepler satellite and related astronomical efforts, according to Jill Tarter, an astronomer at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, Calif., who has devoted her life to the search for extraterrestrials. “ This will get real when we have an Earth analogue as a destination,” she said. David Neyland, DARPA’S director of tactical technology, is at pains to point out that the goal of his project is not an interstellar spacecraft, only a business plan for designing one. The search, he explained, is for an organization, presumably private, that can grow the interstellar vision without government help, carrying the load for the next 100 years, developing valuable technological offshoots the way investing in computer protocols enabled the Internet. After this November, whoever it is will be on their own. “We don’t intend to carry it forward,” Neyland added. “DARPA hands the keys over to this entity, and we wish them well.”

B U S I N E SS IN BRIEF John Deere credits Asia for 3Q profits CHICAGO — Deere & Co., the world’s largest farm-equipment maker, posted fiscal third-quarter profits Wednesday that topped analysts’ estimates and raised its full-year earnings forecast as global demand improved. Net income gained 15 percent to $712.3 million, or $1.69 a share, in the quarter through July, from $617 million, or $1.44, a year earlier, Moline, Ill.-based Deere said in a statement. The average estimate of 12 analysts in a Bloomberg survey was for $1.67 a share. Profit will be $2.7 billion in the year ending Oct. 31, more than the $2.65 billion forecast in May. The average estimate of eight analysts in the Bloomberg survey was for net income of $2.72 billion. Deere, led by Chief Executive Officer Sam Allen, plans to double annual sales to $50 billion by 2018 and raise the proportion of revenue from outside the U.S. and Canada to 50 percent from 35 percent in fiscal 2010. The company is introducing new products and expanding manufacturing in countries such as China, Russia and India to serve rising worldwide demand for food, shelter and infrastructure.

States wary of double-dip recession “I don’t think it has yet sunk in with the public how difficult it is for state and local governments and how complicated it is going to be.” — William Purcell, director, Harvard Institute of Politics

By Stephen C. Fehr Stateline.org

WASHINGTON — The possibility of a double-dip recession is worrying state officials who thought they had put the worst downturn since World War II behind them. State officials say the bleak economic news of the past few weeks has triggered new alarm just as jobs are slowly increasing and tax collections are improving. Some economists

have said that last week’s stock market swings, reports of slow growth and the downgrading of U.S. debt by Standard & Poor’s could be early indicators of a dual recession. “I look at the gyrations in the stock market and wonder if it’s not a sign of an economy substantially out of balance,” says New Hampshire House Speaker William O’Brien, a Republican. Lawrence Yun, chief economist at the National Associa-

tion of Realtors, told a meeting of the National Conference of State Legislatures last week that he has increased the probability of another recession from 10 percent three months ago to 30 percent today. A recent USA Today survey of 39 economists reached the same conclusion. A reason for the pessimistic forecast, Yun said, is “all the weapons to fight the economic downturn have already been used.” See States / B3

BID FOR BREWER

What’s Australian for hostile takeover? New York Times News Service

Yo,Sisters!

SABMiller, one of the world’s largest brewers, said Wednesday that it would take its $10 billion bid for rival Foster’s Group directly to shareholders, two months after the board of the Australian beermaker rebuffed an initial offer. The hostile play comes just days before Foster’s is set to report its annual results, which are expected to be weaker than those of the previous year. SABMiller, whose array of brands includes Peroni and Castle, has remained steadfast in pursuing a deal, despite the unwillingness of Foster’s to hold discussions. In June, the Foster’s board rejected a bid for 4.90 Australian dollars ($5.16) a share in cash, calling it too low. The offer, which remains unchanged, would decrease with any dividend that Foster’s pays out, SABMiller said. Julian Chillingworth, chief investment officer at Rathbone Brothers, said the takeover bid would probably succeed. For one, no rival bidders have emerged since SABMiller’s initial proposal.

Lost bargaining power

Customers line up to pay for self-serve frozen yogurt at the east Bend location of Cuppa Yo Frozen Yogurt on Bellevue Drive, near the intersection of Northeast 27th Street and U.S. Highway 20. The company, which also has a west Bend store, plans to open a Sisters location in March.

Bend frozen yogurt company sets sights West By Jordan Novet The Bulletin

S

elf-serve frozen yogurt — with flavors that range from tart lemon to classic chocolate, and claims that it boosts the immune system — has been a popular food trend across the nation for several years. Now Cuppa Yo Frozen Yogurt LLC, a Bend-based company founded by two sisters and their husbands, is reaping the benefits of the frozen yogurt trend as it takes off in Central Oregon. In 2010, Cuppa Yo opened its first location on Newport Avenue and just last month opened a second location on Bellevue Drive in east Bend, near the intersection of Northeast 27th Street and U.S. Highway 20. Now the company plans to open a third location in March in downtown Sisters on the south side of U.S. Highway 20. “We’ve found a great concept,” said

“You know, it’s just, like, a day and age where people like to have control, and self-serve frozen yogurt pretty much explains itself.” — Melissa Clayton, co-owner, Cuppa Yo Frozen Yogurt LLC Cuppa Yo co-owner Melissa Clayton. “It’s a day and age where people like to have control, and self-serve frozen yogurt pretty much explains itself.” The company has grown from the four owners to about 25 employees, coowner Matt Gilstrap said. But it’s still a family affair. Melissa Clayton and her sister, Stephanie Gilstrap, along with their husbands, Keith

and Matt, respectively, own all the locations. Interest in the business model — not just the popularity of the yogurt — prompted the owners to expand, Melissa Clayton said. People were stopping by the two open locations and asking the co-owners questions about the business — “almost, like, too many questions,” she said. “They are interested in doing it themselves, and we could feel that on all sides.” Cuppa Yo does have competition — and it’s increasing. Yo Wild! has been offering self-serve frozen yogurt in southwest Redmond since January. In downtown Bend, the Bend Yogurt Factory opened in June, with seven self-serve frozen yogurt machines in “a giant yogurt wall,” said Anne Barrans, a co-owner of the business. See Self-serve / B3

Foster’s has lost some of its bargaining power since then, too. In June, some analysts suggested that SABMiller, based in London, would have to increase its bid to as much as 5.40 Australian dollars. But Foster’s share price has fallen along with global markets, briefly dipping below SABMiller’s offering price before righting itself in recent days. Shares in Foster’s closed at 4.96 Australian dollars Wednesday. “As long as they don’t overpay, it’s a sensible move,” said Chillingworth, whose firm owns shares of SABMiller. “It gives them the option to use Australia as a gateway to China.” SABMiller has been an aggressive dealmaker in the past decade. In 2002, South African Breweries acquired Miller from Philip Morris for $5.6 billion to create SABMiller. A few years later, SABMiller bought a majority stake in Bavaria, South America’s biggest beer company. It has since filled out its portfolio with acquisitions and investment across the globe, matching businesses in fast-growing regions like China and Latin America with mature, cashflow-rich areas like Europe and the United States. It is a similar story across the industry. Amid rising commodity prices and other profit pressures, the largest players — Anheuser-Busch InBev, SABMiller, Heineken and Carlsberg — have been rapidly consolidating. See Foster’s / B3

Market closes with mixed gains, losses The stock market wavered Wednesday and ended mixed, weighed down by corporate results related to the technology and consumer sectors. While crucial sectors like energy and financial stocks recovered Wednesday, after leading the overall market decline Tuesday, technology shares were dragged lower as Dell dropped more than 10 percent. The technology sector was down about 1 percent at the market close. The consumer discretionary index dipped 0.38 percent. Abercrombie & Fitch, the retailer, was down more than 8 percent and led the list of leading decliners among the 10 most actively traded shares during most of the session. A range of stocks gained Wednesday, including those in telecommunications, utilities and consumer staples. Investors extracted guidance about the economy and consumer spending from results. Seasonal factors appeared to help Target, for example, which reported a higher quarterly profit aided by school-related sales toward the end of the period. Its shares rose more than 2 percent. Staples closed slightly lower. It raised its outlook and its earnings exceeded expectations. Overall, the declines in the equities market were slight — less than 1 percent in each of the three main indexes — but a reversal from the trend in early trading. — From wire reports

Brands have pursued product placement for years, cutting deals to get sodas and sports cars in movies and on television. Some have even insisted on the opposite, having their logos and labels blurred by the camera when associated with the bad guy. Now Abercrombie & Fitch is doing one better: It has offered to pay the cast members of the trashy-and-proud MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” never to wear its clothes on air. “This association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,” the company said in a news release. Mike Jeffries, Abercrombie’s chair-

man and chief executive, said Wednesday that the company was “having a lot of fun” with the proposed payoff. Drew Kerr, a public relations consultant in New York, said the move reminded him of Larry Flynt offering famous people millions to pose for Hustler. “It’s offering something publicly that you know is never going to happen, but you do it because it’s just made for the press,” he said. In a news release with the title “Abercrombie & Fitch Proposes a Win-Win Situation,” the company said Tuesday that it had become concerned after noticing that a cast member, Mike Sorrentino, known as “the Situation,” had taken to wearing its clothes.

P F   Student financing: Paying for school, teaching kids about money

Watch what they do, not what they say By Tom Petruno Los Angeles Times

Erica Dubek, second from left, will join her sister, Alexandria, center, at Kansas State University in the fall. Sandy, left, and Robert Dubek, not pictured, of Flower Mound, Texas, told their children about searching for scholarships and renewing grants and other financial aid each year.

Calculating college costs By Pamela Yip The Dallas Morning News

DALLAS — Families bust their tails for years to scrimp and save for their children’s college education. But they must keep in mind that the job isn’t done once the child starts college. It’s just as important to keep expenses in line over the course of the student’s college career. “When a child goes off to college, it’s a time to reprioritize spending — both current and projected,” said Paul Goebel, senior associate dean of students at the University of North Texas Student Money Management Center. For parents, he said, the question becomes, “How much are they going to be able to provide in financial support in college and living expenses?” Unfortunately, there’s no one answer, as each family’s situation is different. But there are some common themes each family must address. The first step, experts say, is to have the money talk with your college-age child. “Before the student heads to college, the parents and student should sit down and have a talk about college finances,” said June Walbert, a certified financial planner at USAA Financial Planning. “If you don’t know that money is tight as a student, you may not conduct yourself as if money is tight.” Robert and Sandy Dubek of Flower Mound, Texas, had the talk with each of their five children as they prepared them for college. The key message was that paying for college isn’t easy and the children should graduate in four years. “It’s not cheap,” said Robert Dubek, an area manager for the Federal Investigative Services, which conducts background checks for people seeking security clearance. “It’s an investment, so when we make a commitment to something, we need to finish it.” Once you’ve had the talk, there are steps you can take to control your costs:

Hunt for financial aid The Dubeks told their children about searching for scholarships and renewing grants and other financial aid each year. “We pay for tuition and a certain amount for room and

“Before the student heads to college, the parents and student should sit down and have a talk about college finances. If you don’t know that money is tight as a student, you may not conduct yourself as if money is tight.” — June Walbert, certified financial planner, USAA Financial Planning board,” Robert Dubek said. “Their job was to apply for different scholarships.” “Kids should not stop looking for free money,” Walbert said. “Tell your counselor about your major, and maybe they know of a specific pot of money that you otherwise wouldn’t know about.”

Rent textbooks Textbooks are a major expense for students, so consider renting them from the campus bookstore. “The parents we’ve talked to say typically rental programs save about 50 percent on new textbooks and about 25 off the cost of used textbooks,” Goebel said. Sell your purchased textbooks back immediately after final exams, said Derrick Kinney, financial adviser at Derrick Kinney & Associates. “Even waiting a day or two can drop the buyback price by 50 percent or more,” he said.

Save on food, fun Consider buying a campus meal plan for your child. But don’t waste money on a meal plan if he or she won’t use it. “If you purchase a meal plan, use a meal plan,” Goebel said. However, he said, “there will be times when a student wants to eat away from the meal hall, so you have to account for those expenses in your budget.” The Dubeks’ kids are responsible for their miscellaneous expenses, such as entertainment and dues for fraternities and sororities. Daughter Alexandria, 21, and sons Tyler and Kyle, both 19, have jobs to earn spending money. Another daughter, Erica, 17, who will join Alexandria and Tyler at Kansas State University in the fall, also will be looking for a job. (Their oldest daughter, 25-year-old Kacie, is not enrolled in college.)

“You have to draw the line somewhere, and you have to draw some boundaries,” Robert Dubek said.

Buy renter’s insurance “College students are known to be pretty careless with their things, especially with laptops, the iPad, iPhone,” Walbert said. “If a family is struggling anyway to send their child to college, it’s going to be a real stretch for them to replace all of those items in one fell swoop.” Be sure you buy replacement cost coverage insurance, not actual cash value.

Check health plans A provision in the health care reform law allows people younger than 26 to remain on their parents’ health plans. This may be your best bet, Walbert said. “To get the best coverage at the best price, the student should stay on the parent’s policy,” she said. Students who don’t have health insurance through a parent’s policy may buy a student plan. In general, these plans have more limited benefits and more exclusions than traditional health plans, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. If your child is insured through a health maintenance organization or preferred provider organization, check how the plan treats a college student not living at home.

Getting around Your child will dread this question, but you have to ask it: Do they really need a car on campus? The Dubeks answered that question quickly. “We don’t live large, so the kids have to realize that they don’t get cars,” Robert Dubek said. However, he and his wife will co-sign on a car loan for their

kids, but the children are responsible for car payments and auto insurance premiums.

Choosing a bank Many banks have checking accounts designed specifically for students. “You want a free checking account with no minimum balance requirement, debit card and rebates on ATM fees,” Walbert said. “Sometimes the bank account runs a little thin, and you want to make sure you’re not penalized if you fall below a balance.” Find a bank that doesn’t charge fees if you exceed a specified number of transactions per month. You can open a joint account with your child so you can easily deposit money. Or, your child can have his or her own checking account — but you need to keep a close watch. “I recommend at the end of every semester that you talk to your child about how the money thing went,” Walbert said. “You will know whether you need to cough up more money, and you can also counsel them on better (money) management.”

Watch the credit cards Credit cards can be trouble for college students because the debt can dog them after they graduate. People under age 21 must have an adult co-signer to get a credit card if they can’t show they have the means to pay off the debt on their own. Think carefully before co-signing for a credit card. If your child is late on payments, it would hurt both your credit records. If your child isn’t good at managing money, get them a prepaid credit card that you preload with funds. Your child will never spend more money than is loaded on the card. “It’s fair for the kid to know that once the card is dry, it’s dry,” Walbert said. The bottom line, Walbert said, is the college experience should help teach students how to manage their money and make ends meet without a financial hardship. “That’s the trick,” she said. “We want our students to grow into financially responsible and financially independent people,” Walbert said. “We want them off our payroll.”

The financial and economic landscape has come to look like something from Alice’s Wonderland. American consumers now have less confidence in the economy than at any time since at least 1980, according to the latest monthly survey from Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan. You heard that right: People are more depressed than they were even at the depths of the 2007-2009 recession. But just as in Wonderland, things aren’t necessarily what they seem. Confidence has been plummeting for three straight months, but that didn’t stop many consumers from spending in July. Overall U.S. retail sales rose 0.5 percent for the month, the biggest gain since March, the government reported Friday. Watch what they do, not what they say? The confidence and retail reports capped a week of extreme volatility in global markets, as investors struggled to understand just what they’re up against. Recession? Depression? Muddle through? An economic “soft patch” on the way to new strength? Despite consumers’ grim mood, most of the hard evidence — including the July retail sales report — still says the U.S. economy isn’t collapsing. On Thursday, the government’s latest report on new claims for unemployment benefits showed they fell last week for the fourth time in six weeks, to a four-month low. For most Americans, this probably is the strangest economic and financial backdrop they’ve ever faced. And strange, in this case, translates into bewildering at best and terribly frightening at worst. People with savings in the bank have been earning minuscule returns on their money for two years as the Federal Reserve has held its key short-term interest rate near zero. This week, after issuing a downbeat assessment of the economy’s near-term prospects, the Fed said it was likely to keep its rate at rock bottom for at least another two years. The message to savers is, “You get nothing,” said Howard Simons, market strategist at Bianco Research in Chicago.

Saving is not paying Actually, less than nothing. Subtract taxes on interest income and then adjust for inflation — which was up 3.6 percent in June from a year earlier — and money in the bank is losing value. Yet cash has continued to pour into bank savings accounts. Americans have added another $320 billion to those accounts just since June 1, boosting the total to a record $5.86 trillion. To have so much money content earning negative real returns runs counter to what we thought we knew about capitalism and economic rationality. But after the deep 20082009 recession and stock market crash, many people believe they’re being perfectly rational choosing an insured bank account over the other alternatives for their nest egg. And with stocks now in the red for 2011 — the Standard & Poor’s 500 index is down 6.3 percent year to date — that’s more justification for investors who have already given up on the market for good. Companies, too, can’t seem to play it safe enough. Cash balances held by the S&P 500 companies reached $963 billion at the end of the first quarter, an all-time high, according to S&P. With their stocks down sharply in the past three weeks and eco-

nomic uncertainty rising, what are the odds that corporate executives will want to boost spending and hiring as opposed to hoarding more dollars? Yet the U.S. stock market still doesn’t seem to be buying the recession-or-worse story. The S&P 500 index now is down about 12 percent from its 2011 high reached in late April. If investors really believed that recession was imminent, you’d expect to see much more damage to stocks by now. Corporate earnings continue to support share prices. Despite the struggling economy, operating earnings of the S&P 500 companies rose nearly 12 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, according to Thomson Reuters. That could turn out to be the high water mark for earnings, but so far the stock market doesn’t see it that way.

Buying up bonds Faced with earning nothing on cash or rolling the dice with equities, many investors are continuing to reject both for a third option: bonds. The new rush to Treasuries reflects heightened fears about the global economy and also was abetted by the Fed’s pledge to hold short-term rates down potentially through mid-2013. Some yield is better than no yield, or so bond buyers are figuring. Bonds are far safer than stocks, of course. But with inflation at 3.6 percent, even 10-year Treasury note yields are negative after inflation. This isn’t a deal that investors ought to be happy with. Wall Street has a term for the bond market’s new reality: financial repression. As Bianco’s Simons describes it, “You drive interest rates so low that you create an environment where the government can borrow at low rates and deprive its lenders of a real return.” Down the rabbit hole we’ve gone.

Child poverty rate has risen dramatically in U.S. By Rene Lynch Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Coverage of the current economic crisis has focused on how it’s affecting everything from the housing market to the global market, from our pocketbooks to our tax coffers. But there’s one segment of the population that has been largely ignored: how the crisis is affecting the nation’s children. A new report released Wednesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation says that children have been among those hardest hit by the crisis, with the number of children living below the child poverty rate — “a conservative measure of economic hardship” — increasing 18 percent between 2000 and 2009. The report also said that a stunning 42 percent of the nation’s children are in households strug-

Foster’s Continued from B1 The top four players now account for 50 percent of the global beer market, up from 20 percent in the late 1990s. With an acquisition of Foster’s, SABMiller would gain control of a sizable portion of Australia’s beer industry. The Foster’s lineup includes seven of the top 10 brands, including the No. 1 beer, Victoria Bitter. While Foster’s is losing market share in Australia, the brewer’s profit margins remain high relative to the global industry. SABMiller has a history with

States Continued from B1 Back-to-back recessions would be crippling. Already, states have slashed nearly half a trillion dollars in the past five years to balance their budgets — cuts that blunted the effect of the $862 billion economic stimulus Congress enacted in 2009 to help revive the economy. Drops in state tax collections from another recession could lead to additional cuts in services, programs and employees at the same time the federal government is poised to begin reducing aid to states thanks to the recent debt ceiling agreement. As Debbie Smith, a Nevada Democrat who chairs the state Assembly’s Ways and Means committee, puts it, “We don’t know what’s left to cut.”

Progress would be negated Another recession on the heels of the one that ended in June 2009 would negate the slight progress many states have been making with their finances. Delaware Controller General Russell Larson says improving tax revenues in his state allowed lawmakers to pass a budget that covers the falloff of federal stimulus money and even gives 2 percent raises to state employees and pensioners. “We’re just now starting to get back on our feet,” Larson says. “If the economy sinks again, we’re stuck in the same boat.” As evidence of economic gains that Delaware would hate to lose, Larson notes that Fisker Automotive recently said it would buy a closed General Motors plant

Self-serve Continued from B1 Retailers that sell other products, such as Blooms & Sweets in south Bend and a Subway location in the same shopping center, also have installed self-serve frozen yogurt machines recently. The self-serve frozen yogurt model, with its per-ounce pricing and lack of behind-the-counter employees, has taken root across the country in the past few years. Companies such as Pinkberry, Red Mango, Yogurberry, Yogurtland and TCBY have opened self-serve shops — or converted from full-service stores — throughout the United States, and, in some cases, in other countries as well. Cold Stone Creamery began selling yogurt at all locations last month, and earlier this year, the company added self-serve machines at a few stores, according to a news release. Some companies, including Cuppa Yo, market their yogurt with claims of the health benefits from fewer calories and the presence of beneficial probiotic bacteria in comparison with ice cream. On its website, Cuppa Yo

gling to make ends meet. “We’re seeing a dramatic increase in the child poverty rate,” said Patrick McCarthy, president and chief executive of Annie E. Casey Foundation. “The recession has basically wiped out any gains we made in the 1990s.” Among the figures: In 2010, 11 percent of children had at least one unemployed parent. And 4 percent have been affected by a home foreclosure since 2007. That last figure doesn’t reflect the number of children living in rental housing that have been affected by foreclosure, such as when a landlord goes under and has to sell off property, displacing tenants, McCarthy said. Research surrounding the four prior recessions found that children caught up in the economic crisis are likely to exhibit behav-

ioral problems, have difficulty in school, are less educated and earn less money, and have more health problems. The foundation offers a variety of suggestions to help kids and families, including foreclosure prevention and mediation efforts for families facing a housing crisis, promoting health insurance coverage for children, financial advice for families, and educational interventions for children in crisis to help keep them on track as their families scramble to deal with their financial woes. “This isn’t just a bleeding heart notion that ‘we ought to take care of poor kids.’ It’s about how are we going to build the kind of workforce and contributing members of society that will make us strong and keep us globally competitive,” he said.

Foster’s. In 2006, it purchased the Foster’s business in India. Miller Brewing, the company’s U.S. subsidiary, also has an agreement to brew certain brands in the United States, including Foster’s Lager and Special Bitter. Now, SABMiller will need to convince shareholders that a broader deal makes sense. Foster’s owners include a combination of domestic investors like Commonwealth Bank of Australia and National Bank of Australia as well as global money managers including Deutsche Bank. There is some overlap between the shareholder bases of the two companies. For example,

BlackRock has a significant stake in both brewers, according to Bloomberg data. Regulators, too, may need some reassurances, Chillingworth of Rathbone Brothers said, especially if they consider the Foster’s brand a point of Australian pride. The national government has previously intervened in takeovers by foreign companies. In April, Australian authorities rejected a bid by the Singapore Exchange for the stock exchange operator ASX, saying the deal was not in the nation’s interest. A spokesman for Foster’s was not immediately available for comment.

near Wilmington to build hybridelectric cars. Until the 2007-09 recession, the previous worst for states was the double-dip downturns of 1980 and 1981-82. State economies take longer than the national economy to bounce back from a downturn. That’s because the decline in tax collections and the increase in spending on safety-net programs such as Medicaid do not occur until late in the recession and sometimes continue into the recovery. Two years after the official end of the latest recession, many states still are not bringing in the amount of money they had before 2007. Meantime, Medicaid enrollment is skyrocketing. “I don’t think it has yet sunk in with the public how difficult it is for state and local governments and how complicated it is going to be,” says William Purcell, a former Tennessee legislator and Nashville mayor who now directs Harvard’s Institute of Politics. Some state lawmakers blame President Barack Obama for failing to offer a coherent policy to stimulate economic growth. “Our president has to provide more leadership,” says Republican state Sen. Paul Campbell of South Carolina. Campbell’s state this year raised unemployment insurance taxes on employers, which he says will discourage job creation. According to Yun, the Realtors’ economist, when the consumer confidence index is 100 or above, the incumbent president usually is re-elected. The current level is hovering around 55. “If the election was held today,” Yun says, “President Obama would be in trouble.” One of the Republicans seeking Obama’s job, Texas Gov.

Rick Perry, told the meeting of state legislators last week that the recent political breakdown over raising the debt ceiling “was the culmination of a reckless culture that has refused to confront spending in Washington, D.C.” Texas’ relatively healthy economy, he said, proves “you can’t tax and spend your way to prosperity.” No sooner had Perry finished speaking than state Rep. Paul Haire, a Democrat from North Carolina, reacted in disgust. “This idea of cut, cut, cut can get out of control,” Haire told a reporter. “Cutting spending also cuts jobs, which stimulate the economy. You can’t improve the economy unless people have money to spend.”

references recent research into the effects of eating yogurt, including the potential that eating yogurt can boost the immune system, indications that eating it may be useful in lowering serum cholesterol, and even “yogurt’s potential in the prevention and management of certain cancer.” But the company doesn’t include citations for the research on its site. The ability to buy a small amount to fit a budget is also a common selling point. Cuppa Yo sells its yogurt for 40 cents per ounce. “The popularity definitely is catching on, and I don’t think it’s much too long now before we start seeing (self-serve frozen yogurt shops) pop up all over the place down here,” said Josh Scheidler, who owns Yo Wild! along with his wife, Bernice, and his father, Steve. Scheidler said he and the other owners of the company envision opening other locations. Melissa Clayton said Cuppa Yo could open more locations, too, probably in Central Oregon. Barrans, who owns the Bend Yogurt Factory with her husband, Timothy, said one location is enough for them. After coming

Survival The prospect of additional spending cuts from another recession also worries Democratic state Sen. Steve Conway, who represents a high-unemployment district south of Tacoma, Wash., where one of three residents are on Medicaid and one in five get food stamps. “The more we cut,” Conway says, “the more we cut into people’s ability to survive.” Lawmakers in both parties agree on one thing: The key to reviving the economies of their states is creating jobs and boosting the housing market. Both will dominate 2012 legislative sessions and the election campaign. As Joseph Cryan, a Democrat who is the majority leader in the New Jersey state Senate, puts it, “I don’t know how we ever get better until we get people back to work.”

across a self-serve frozen yogurt shop in Las Vegas about three years ago, the couple planned to open a similar store of their own, but no more than one, she said. “Plus,” she said, “I really don’t think we need any more frozen yogurt places in Bend.” The Central Oregon yogurt trend may be driven in part by the efforts of Portland-based YoCream International Inc., the manufacturer of the yogurt used by The Bend Yogurt Factory, Cuppa Yo and Yo Wild! Every month, YoCream holds two-day intensive training courses to give future frozen yogurt shop owners an idea of what the business entails. The training course is available for a deep discount off the regular $10,000 price if future store owners agree to exclusively contract with YoCream for their first year. Tony Tennant, a marketing coordinator at YoCream, said the company is expanding its market in areas in Oregon and Washington. But he said the company is seeing faster growth in the Midwest.

Abercrombie

sultant, said the episode echoed one last year on the same show, when rumors about product placement surrounded Sorrentino’s cast mate Nicole Polizzi, known as “Snooki.” The contention, never confirmed, was that luxury handbag companies were supplying Snooki with rival brands’ purses so that theirs would not be associated with her. Abercrombie reported quarterly earnings Wednesday, and its executives seemed rather pleased with their Situation situation in a conference call with Wall Street analysts. “Is no one going to ask about the Situation?” Jeffries, the chief executive, asked after a series of questions about Abercrombie’s finances and strategy. “Last Friday morning, I was with a group of people here and someone came up and said, ‘Mike, I have terrible, terrible news for you. Last night on “Jersey Shore,” the Situation had A&F product on.’ We all said, ‘Oh! That’s terrible! What are we going to do about it?’ And the group kind of came up with the solution: Let’s pay them not to wear our product.” John Morris, an analyst with BMO Capital Markets, said the move was a smart one because it left an optimistic tone to Abercrombie’s conference call. “This puts the name Abercrombie top of mind during the all-important back-to-school season,” he said. He added that while Abercrombie’s quarterly results beat forecasts, executives’ caution about the rest of the year seemed worrisome. “Our take was, if they were so concerned about the current state of business, would they be bringing up something as grave as the Situation?” Morris said. Still, Abercrombie’s stock fell more than 8 percent Wednesday.

Continued from B1 It is hard to imagine Abercrombie’s fans were too distressed — they would probably be more upset if their parents started wearing the clothes. After all, Abercrombie is a mass-market brand that goes after teenagers and is not shy about controversy — when it opened its Paris store earlier this year, it paraded shirtless models along the Champs-Élysées before the police shut the show down. Jordan Yospe, a lawyer who handles product-placement deals in movies and television shows, said that if Abercrombie were serious about keeping its clothing off the Situation, it would have pursued legal options rather than offering him money. “They could try to prevent the series from airing their intellectual property without their permission,” said Yospe, a lawyer at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips in Los Angeles. Logos and labels fall under fairuse law, he said, and shows have to get approval from the owner of the intellectual property to use them. That’s why on so many low-end reality shows, brands are often blurred, Yospe said — the shows either could not or did not try to get approval. Abercrombie “could say, ‘Blur ‘em,’ ” if it wanted to sever the association, Yospe said. However, in issuing a news release instead, Abercrombie seemed pleased to fan the flames. And MTV played along Wednesday. “It’s a clever PR stunt, and we’d love to work with them on other ways they can leverage ‘Jersey Shore’ to reach the largest youth audience on television,” it said in an e-mail.

Who will win the tech free-for-all? By Jia Lynn Yang

“It’s the biggest, most intense battle in tech history. I think all four of those guys get it. They get that it’s between us four. And we need to have something on every front.”

The Washington Post

Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, has called them the “gang of four.” They are the four titans of tech: Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. And they are impossible to escape, tapping nearly every consumer’s wallet and holding vast power over huge swaths of the economy. The companies are racing one another to be king of the digital age, and each is lacking something that another one has. Put in the missing pieces, and one company has the potential to be all things to all people — a complete system in which consumers spend most of their time watching videos, reading the news, writing email and making purchases. “It’s the biggest, most intense battle in tech history,” said Ted Morgan, chief executive of Skyhook Wireless, a firm that provides location-based technology for mobile devices. “It’s so much bigger than even the Microsoft, Apple, IBM battles of the 1990s. I think all four of those guys get it. They get that it’s between us four. And we need to have something on every front.”

— Ted Morgan, chief executive, Skyhook Wireless move that will send the company even further into Apple’s smartphone turf. During much of their histories, Google and Apple have looked like vastly different firms. Google, with its powerful search algorithm, has made money by selling ads that appear alongside its search results. Instead of manufacturing its own devices, the company offered its Android software to run on phones built by others, including Motorola, Samsung and HTC.

Apple: device master Apple, on the other hand, has built its success by selling computers, phones and tablets that work with the company’s software programs. By contrast, Apple has had a weaker presence on the Web, a domain ruled by Google. “Apple is basically an ecosystem with end-to-end delivery,” said Michael Gartenberg, an analyst at Gartner. “Google’s looking at that and saying, ‘Hey, maybe that works for us.’ “ The fact that two companies coming from vastly different business models have arrived at such

THE BULLETIN • Thursday, August 18, 2011 B5

The latest example: Google’s announcement this week that it will acquire cellphone maker Motorola Mobility Holdings, a

a similar juncture demonstrates how quickly these dominant tech firms can wind up competing against one another.

Facebook: the people’s champion Facebook, the youngest of the bunch, is the world’s most popular social network. But founder Mark Zuckerberg’s ambitions are grander — and they run directly into those of the three other titans. Facebook hopes to be an alternative way to organize the Web, a platform for consumers to spend their time online. Instead of using Google’s algorithm to search for news and information, Zuckerberg envisions a future in which people consult their network of friends. Most critically, content on Facebook is out of the reach of Google’s search engine. And the more time people spend on Facebook, the less time they are looking at ads on Google, which recently launched Google Plus as a rival social network. Facebook is beginning to bump into Apple’s business of selling apps on its devices. Zuckerberg’s

company has quickly become a powerful player in the booming market for social games, such as the popular FarmVille. And the company is watching the mobile market just as much as Google and Apple are. Facebook is one of the most popular mobile apps on Google’s Android phones and Apple’s iPhone, showing that although these companies have become rivals, they can be dependent on one another. Facebook is edging into Amazon’s territory by offering movies for rent using the company’s currency, Facebook credits.

Amazon: retail titan Amazon, the world’s biggest online retailer, is benefiting from growing sales of its Kindle e-book reader and digital media, including books, movies and music, putting it in competition with iTunes. But more significant, Amazon — like Google — is shifting toward Apple’s territory of making devices. Not only does Amazon have the Kindle, but the Wall Street Journal reported in July that the company is planning to make a tablet to rival the iPad. The four titans are among the biggest firms in the country. Apple, Amazon and Google have a combined market capitalization — or total stock value — of $616 billion, with Apple briefly surpassing Exxon Mobil this month as the world’s most valuable company. Facebook plans to go public soon.

Syrian currency stability fuels influx speculation By Borzou Daragahi Los Angeles Times

BEIRUT — A sharp discrepancy between Syria’s nose-diving economy and its relatively stable currency is fueling speculation among observers that either another country — presumably strategic, oil-rich ally Iran — has injected huge amounts of cash into its economy, or Damascus is quickly draining its foreigncurrency reserves. Syria’s overall economy, stock market, vital tourism industry and foreign investment have collapsed, according to economists and analysts. It appears to have hemorrhaged cash, with the bulk flowing to Lebanon, which has long served as a conduit for Syrian finances. But its currency, the Syrian pound, has held strong, staying about the same as before an uprising against President Bashar Assad began five months ago. The disconnect between the teetering economy and the stable currency has baffled some observers and led to speculation about possible influxes of cash. “You have the collapse of exports and the collapse of foreign direct investment,” said a Western diplomat in Beirut who closely tracks the Syrian economy and spoke on condition of anonymity. “Given the fact that the currency has not collapsed, the indications are that money is coming in. No one knows from where, or how much.” Many economists and officials agree that, up until the uprising began, Syria’s prospects were relatively good, with many predicting a banner year for the country thanks to an uptick in tourism, invest-

ment from Iran and the Arabian Peninsula kingdoms, and increased trade with Turkey. But the political crisis engulfing the country has changed all that. Syria’s tiny Damascus stock market was down 41 percent during the first seven months of 2011, the worst performance in an Arab world convulsed by political unrest. Its gross domestic product, earlier projected to weather the global economic crisis and grow 3 percent, will instead probably shrink 5 percent or more. Tourism, which accounted for $4 billion annually, or 12 percent of its economy, has collapsed. What’s more, a flood of cash appears to have poured from the country. According to a report issued by the Byblos Bank, headquartered in Beirut, deposits in the Syrian accounts held by Lebanese banks Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions

dropped by up to 24 percent by the end of April. Meanwhile, despite a political crisis that crippled the government in Lebanon, banks here reported surges in deposits: from $670 million in February to $1.34 billion in March and $1.8 billion in April. Syrian officials have taken steps to stem the outflow, including raising interest rates on savings, lowering rates on lending and adding transaction fees to dollar withdrawals. The official news agency said Monday that Syria had barred anyone from exchanging more than $3,000 worth of local money for hard currency without special permission in order to “put an end to manipulation in the currency market and speculation.” Syria may have also begun drawing on extensive reserves that officials claimed had reached $17 billion, built up over the decades to keep the currency solid and the merchant class supportive — or at least quiet about the crackdown against the protest movement. Other factors could be helping maintain the Syrian currency’s stable rate. Remittances from abroad, which total about $1.2 billion a year, could have gone up as wealthy Syrians send cash home. Also, security forces could be forcing black market vendors to keep prices steady.

THE BULLETIN • THURSDAY, AUGUST 18, 2011

IN BRIEF Oregon students top average on ACT The average ACT score for 2011 high school graduates in Oregon was 21.5, the same as the previous year, according to an Oregon Department of Education news release. The national average ACT score was 21.1 out of a possible 36. Of the 11,715 Oregon students who took the test, 13 earned a perfect score. That was the most perfect scores in one year, the release said. Despite that success, there were achievement gaps for African-Americans, Native Americans and Hispanic students, whose respective average scores were 16.6, 18.2 and 17.5, according to the release.

Driver, 16, injured in crash into rock wall A 16-year-old driver was airlifted to the hospital Wednesday morning after being involved in a single-vehicle crash. The teenage girl, whose name is being withheld because she is a juvenile, was driving eastbound on Chinook Drive near Crooked River Ranch in a 1995 Honda Accord. At around 7 a.m., her vehicle crossed the center lane of travel, continued through the westbound lane and crashed into a large rock wall on the north shoulder of the road. Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the crash. The driver had to be extracted from the vehicle by Redmond and Crooked River Ranch medical and fire personnel. The teenager was then airlifted to St. Charles Bend with non-life-threatening injuries. Chinook Drive was closed for approximately 40 minutes following the crash. The reason for the crash is still under investigation, but drugs and alcohol are not believed to have been a factor.

Deschutes to ask voters to approve new 911 tax By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Deschutes County officials will ask voters in May 2012 to approve a new tax rate to support the 911 dispatch center because a tax levy that supports the district will expire in June 2013. The exact amount of the new tax request will be determined by county and law enforcement officials and by a panel of citizens. On Wednesday, the county began looking for residents to

Sunriver man gets 41⁄2 years for deadly crash By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

A Sunriver man was sentenced to 41⁄2 years in prison Wednesday in Deschutes County Circuit Court for his role in a crash that killed a Texas man a year ago. Eric Christopher Ellingson, 23, pleaded guilty to charges of criminally negligent homicide, third-degree assault and DUII on June 21. The Aug. 15, 2010, crash hap-

pened near Cultus Lake on U.S. Forest Service Road 40. Ellingson, driving a Subaru Impreza, lost control on a left turn and swerved into oncoming traffic, where he struck a threewheeled motorcycle ridden by Raymond and Mary Walker of Nocona, Texas. The Walkers were thrown from the motorcycle. Raymond Walker, 62, was declared dead at the scene, while Mary Walker, 60, was seriously injured.

Following an extended investigation by the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, charges were filed against Ellingson in late December. In court Wednesday, Mary Walker read a statement about the crash and its impact on her family, many members of which were in the courtroom with her. Ellingson addressed the family and vowed to do whatever he could to make amends. See Crash / C2

Correction In a story headlined “Solutions center cuts through red tape” that appeared Wednesday, Aug. 17, on Page C1, the status of a possible contract between the Oregon Department of Transportation and Northwest Sign Recycling was mischaracterized. A contract between the two is possible but there are still many steps before it could be considered likely. The Bulletin regrets the error.

Bend city councilors approved a change to city rules governing neighborhood associations Wednesday to make the groups more autonomous. While most everything will stay the same for the actual associations, including involvement in land use decisions, this change will separate the groups from the city and allow them to endorse political causes and candidates. But councilors attached a caveat to that extra freedom: If a neighborhood association does decide to exert its political voice, it won’t be able to spend its city funds to do so. The city currently pays each neighborhood association to send out communications to its membership, mainly to tell it about upcoming meetings. Bend’s total budget for this program in its two-year budget is about $38,000 a year. Since 2003,

that yearly allocation has been between $14,863 and $41,968. Another change for the associations is that the groups won’t have to comply with state public meeting and records laws. Neighborhood association representatives said these laws, particularly those related to public records, are cumbersome. Today, the associations must comply with these laws because they are considered to be quasigovernmental agencies that are part of the city. The new rules, which won’t be officially adopted until after councilors approve a second reading of a new ordinance that was approved Wednesday, will establish them as nongovernmental. Councilors Jodie Barram and Jim Clinton both voted against the change. Nick Grube can be reached at 541-633-2160 or at ngrube@bendbulletin.com.

REPLACING CONGRESSMAN WU

The Oregonian newspaper reported on his voting record, saying it contrasts with those of three potential Democratic rivals who haven’t missed an election during similar periods. Cornilles is a Tualatin resident who owns a sports marketing firm and is running for the seat vacated by Democrat David Wu. He lost to Wu last year.

Cornilles told the newspaper it is a “responsibility for everybody to vote” and conceded that he failed to meet Rob Cornilles, that standard. a Republican He said he missed elections because of business travel. In several cases, Cornilles said, he did not want to vote in elections when he didn’t have enough time to study the issue at hand.

“As important as it is to vote, it’s just as important to know what you’re voting on,” he said. Cornilles said that since he has become politically active in the last few years, he has not missed an election. Electronic records in Washington County show Cornilles missed statewide primary elections in 2000 and 2006, as well as local elections in 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007 and two in 2009, the paper reported.

In 1958, the novel “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov was first published in New York by G.P. Putnam’s Sons, almost three years after it was originally published in Paris. In 1961, federal appeals court Judge Learned Hand, 89, died in New York. In 1963, James Meredith became the first black student to graduate from the University of Mississippi. In 1969, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair in Bethel, N.Y., wound to a close after three nights with a midmorning set by Jimi Hendrix.

Police stage outside an extended stay hotel during a standoff Wednesday in San Rafael, Calif. A busy stretch of a Northern California interstate remained partially closed Wednesday night after a gunman barricaded himself inside a nearby hotel room and fired a shot toward the freeway, authorities said. The man, whose name has not been released, is a suspect in a stabbing Sunday at a San Rafael supermarket. The man told police that his girlfriend was with him, said San Rafael police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher. Police were treating the incident like a hostage situation, she said.

911 Continued from C1 Approximately $6 million — the vast majority of the district’s annual revenue — comes from property taxes, and more than half of that is from the fiveyear levy voters passed in 2008, according to a county budget document. Rob Poirier, director of the 911 district, said at an Aug. 10 County Commission meeting that after looking at other funding options, he believes the district should concentrate on getting voters to approve a new district and tax rate. The only way 911 can increase its permanent tax rate is by simultaneously dissolving the existing tax district and creating a new district with a new rate. “I think this is honestly the way to go,” Poirier told the county commissioners. The commissioners support the idea, County Administrator Dave Kanner said Wednesday. Other options that law enforcement and county officials considered were a user fee, which would be paid by local police and fire agencies that use the 911 dispatch services, and another temporary tax levy. Local police and fire chiefs have said their agencies could not afford to pay user fees, and the temporary tax levies cost money to put on the ballot and create uncertainty in 911’s financial future. Each time the 911 district puts another temporary tax levy on the ballot, it costs approximately $45,000, Poirier said last week. The county’s separate 911 district, with its own tax rate, is unique in Oregon: Nearly all 911 services across the state are funded by the police and fire agencies that use their services.

SALEM — Oregon corrections officials conducted a trial run of a lethal injection Tuesday at the Oregon State Penitentiary to prepare for the possible execution of death row inmate Gary Haugen. The practice came on the same day Haugen originally was scheduled to die. That date was scrubbed in June after the state Supreme Court told a judge to first order a mental competency evaluation for Haugen, who wants to waive his appeals. A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 27. Haugen told The Oregonian in a telephone interview Tuesday night that no one told him ahead of time about the practice or contacted his lawyers so they might be able to observe and identify any problems or issues. He claimed that earlier in the day, a corrections employee threw a notched belt at him, telling him to measure his neck, arms, wrists, ankles and legs, but offered

no explanation. He guessed the reason for that was to prepare the straps that would hold him down for the lethal injection. “Where’s the dignity in that?” he said. Prison officials did not follow through on their pledges to handle the execution process with respect, he said. “It needs to be done in not only an ethical way but in a moral and dignified manner,” he said. The practice helps train staff and ensure they can carry out an execution professionally, Corrections Department spokeswoman Jeanine Hohn said. She added that a staff member was to stand in for Haugen. The inmate said he had not changed his mind about wanting to go through with the execution, and he does want corrections officials to practice to avoid making any mistakes.

Adam Spencer of Springfield was bitten by a sand flea while visiting South America early this year. He contracted leishmaniasis braziliensis because of the bite, and after several months of diagnosis, underwent experimental treatment. His story is being filmed for an episode of “Monsters Inside Me” for the Animal Planet channel.

Springfield man fights flesh-eating parasite Sand fly bite in South America infects traveler with leishmaniasis By Mark Baker Eugene Register-Guard

SPRINGFIELD — “What happened to your face?” How many times has Adam Spencer heard that question since returning from South America on March 21? Too many to remember. That’s what happens when a flesh-eating parasite is burrowing through your right cheek for months. Spencer, a 2006 Thurston High School graduate and 2010 University of Oregon graduate, spent five months hopscotching across South America last fall and winter with his fiancee, Shalynn Pack. But he spent most of Tuesday in Lane County being filmed by a New York City production crew working on an episode of “Monsters Inside Me” for the cable channel Animal Planet that will air early next year. Spencer, 23, now knows that it was a bite from a sand fly along a riverbank in Peru in early January that led to his contracting leishmaniasis braziliensis, an infection caused by parasites living under the skin and spreading to the rest of the body. But it took three months to figure that out.

Working for nonprofit After spending time in Ecuador in October, Spencer and Pack headed for Peru. A journalism major at the UO interested in documentary filmmaking, Spencer was there shooting videos and taking photographs for Peru Verde, a nonprofit ecotourism development company that builds rainforest lodges. Pack, an Oregon State University graduate who majored in zoology, was studying macaw parrots. They climbed to the top of Machu Picchu, the 15th century Inca site, where Spencer proposed to Pack. Spencer was photographing butterflies along a riverbank on Jan. 8 when he sensed what felt

like lots of mosquitoes biting him. But the butterflies were so colorful he just focused on his work. In February, the couple took a weekend trip to the Salt Flats of Uyuni in Bolivia. “And I noticed there was this little pimple-like thing on my face,” Spencer recalled Tuesday, sitting in the Thurston Medical Clinic, where he went for treatment in late March after returning to the United States. “And through the next month or so it slowly grew,” he said.

Little itching or pain He went to a pharmacy in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and got some anti-bacterial cream. After application, it made the growing wound on his cheek ooze. Was it healing? No. But it didn’t hurt or itch much, either. In early March, Spencer and Pack were now in Oruro, Bolivia, doing volunteer work for Sustainable Bolivia. They went to Carnaval de Oruro, an annual event that attracts tens of thousands. They partied with other volunteers until the wee hours of the morning. “I woke up and the wound had just exploded,” Spencer said. He finally went to a doctor in LaPaz, Bolivia. She mentioned that it could be leishmaniasis, which Spencer and Pack had heard about before venturing into the jungle, along with other diseases that foreigners should watch out for, like malaria. But the last time they were in the jungle was two months ago, Spencer told the doctor. So it couldn’t be that, he thought. But leishmaniasis, he would later learn, appears weeks or months after a victim is bitten by a sand fly. After a trip to Chile, the couple returned to the Eugene-Springfield area on March 21. About a week later, Spencer went to see

Dr. Stephen Ames at the Thurston Medical Clinic, whom he’d seen over the years. Ames had never seen a case of leishmaniasis and so didn’t suspect it. A biopsy was inconclusive. Spencer and Pack, who now live with her parents in Veneta, then moved briefly to Corvallis, where she was studying butterflies. Spencer saw a dermatologist there, Dr. Adriana Bruné, who is from Argentina. Being South American and hearing about Spencer’s travels, she suspected leishmaniasis. Another biopsy was positive on April 26. Then the news came that the only drug available in the United States to treat the disease is Pentostam, yet to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Another biopsy had to be done by Dr. Sugat Patel, an infectious diseases doctor in Corvallis, and then sent to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, where a sample had to be grown to test what strain it was before the drug could be prescribed, Spencer said. That took another month, with the diagnosis of the braziliensis strain coming from the CDC.

Could clear up by the holidays On May 25, Spencer started intravenous injections of Pentostam at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. The injections would last for 21 days straight. He still goes back twice a week for a treatment with a misting spray. Spencer, who just got hired to shoot school photographs with a company called Lifetouch, has been told the wound, which is healing slowly, might clear up by Christmastime. Maybe he’ll even watch the monster inside of him during Season Four of the Animal Planet series, scheduled to air between January and March, with a clear face.

Drivers say Medford got what little it paid for The Associated Press MEDFORD — The cheapest bid to resurface an Oregon city’s roads came in nearly $2 million under the traditional cost, but drivers are already complaining about a bumpy ride. The Medford Mail Tribune reported the city of Medford paid a contractor $825,000 to resurface portions of city streets with lowcost cape seal. The city’s road engineer said traditional repaving would have cost about $2.5 million. “Going into this, we recognized there would be sacrifices as far as quality,” said city engineer Larry Beskow. “A lot of the quality issues

are visual. I think if we were to blindfold them, and drive them around town, I don’t think they would be able to tell the difference.” Residents disagree. “It’s an inferior job,” said Rick Faust, a 61-year-old who lives near one of the resurfaced roads. “You can tell it went to the lowest bidder.” The resurfacing company, Valley Slurry Seal Co. of Sacramento, Calif., was indeed the lowest bidder. State law dictates that cities must go with the lowest bid. That bid helps the city’s effort to cut road costs by about 50 percent.

The trade-off for the cheaper cost is the asphalt is much thinner than usual, only a half-inch thick. Asphalt on the same roads would usually be 1.5 to 2 inches thick. Cape seal works by sealing the roadway and spreading small rocks over the surface. A layer of asphalt is then applied that gives the surface a finished look, though one that is rougher than conventional asphalt repaving jobs. The city made the cuts in part because of the rising cost of asphalt. The price of asphalt has risen from $50 per pound several years ago to $70 per pound today.

A field of solar panels is going in at Oregon Institute of Technology this winter that will combine with existing geothermal facilities to make the Klamath Falls campus 100 percent powered by renewable energy produced on site. Gov. John Kitzhaber will attend groundbreaking ceremonies Thursday at OIT. Oregon State University and Eastern Oregon University are also putting in new made-in-Oregon solar systems as part of a program to increase renewable energy on state campuses.

Kulongoski’s idea Oregon University System Assistant Vice Chancellor Bob Simonton said the idea goes back six years, when then-Gov. Ted Kulongoski asked what it would take to power all state buildings with 100 percent renewable energy as part of his goal of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. The seven state universities will remain a long way from that goal, but OIT, which already generates heat and electricity from geothermal wells on campus, should meet it, Simonton said. The OIT solar system will produce an estimated 3.3 million kilowatt hours per year. The first three campuses in the Solar by Degrees program were chosen because they have open land available for building large solar arrays. They will have a combined capacity of 4.9 megawatts, but actual production

By stabilizing power costs over the 25year minimum life of the solar systems, the university system expects to save a total of $6.6 million. will be less because of variations in sunshine. One of the arrays is going on a sheep pasture at OSU, where the sheep will still be able to graze, OSU sustainability coordinator Brandon Trelstad said. The solar system will boost the campus to more than 3 percent renewable power produced on site. Currently, there is one rooftop system and a small mobile system. Portland State University, the University of Oregon, Western Oregon University and Southern Oregon University will start evaluating rooftop sites on their campuses next year.

$27 million project Renewable Energy Development Corp. of Utah will build the solar systems at a cost of more than $27 million on land leased from the three universities, and then sell the power to the universities. They are scheduled to be finished by the end of the year. The company is getting $13.5 million in state energy tax cred-

its, plus federal credits, Simonton said. By stabilizing power costs over the 25-year minimum life of the solar systems, the university system expects to save a total of $6.6 million. It will have the option of buying the solar systems after five years, by which time the value is expected to be far less, due to reduced costs of building solar power systems in general. The solar panels will be manufactured by SolarWorld in Hillsboro, and the inverters by PV Powered of Bend. Oregon Electric of Portland will be the installation contractor. The arrays will have the added benefit of giving students and faculty a chance for hands-on learning and research, Simonton said.

College-bound students in state have work to do

T

his has been a summer of not great news if you’re one of those who believe Oregon’s students should expect a quality education from their public schools. More than half the

state’s schools failed to meet federal standards for Adequate Yearly Progress, including more than half of schools in Central Oregon.

Now comes the ACT test, which measures a student’s general educational development and ability to complete college-level course work. Fewer than a third of Oregon students demonstrated college readiness in all four areas tested, and scores have remained virtually flat for at least the last three years. There is good news in the ACT report. Oregon students did beat the national average by a fraction of a percentage point. Earning good ACT scores is not rocket science, at least according to the folks at ACT Inc., which administers the exams. Rather, it takes rigorous coursework that begins early in a student’s career and continues throughout that career. It takes early planning by a student and his family, and it takes early identification of students who are having problems and quick and effective help with resolving those problems. At a minimum, an ACT spokesman said, a college-bound student should take two years of algebra and one of geometry, plus biology, chemistry and physics. Advanced course-

Though some classwork may aim toward the new, higher standards by this fall, testing against them will not begin until the 2014-15 school year. work, like that offered in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes, helps, too, but is not strictly necessary. Theoretically, at least, there’s hope on the horizon. Oregon is one of 48 states to have adopted the Common Core Curriculum that sets national education standards in both English and math. Though some classwork may aim toward the new, higher standards by this fall, testing against them will not begin until the 2014-15 school year. The move to higher standards is good, even necessary. They’re not the whole answer. Education in this state will not improve until more Oregonians insist on it.

Stop the Legislature’s back-scratching camp O

regon doesn’t have a revolving door of legislators switching back and forth between elected office and better-paying state jobs. It’s more of a one-way door. State Rep. Ben Cannon, D-Portland, is the latest to stride through to better pay. Gov. John Kitzhaber announced Tuesday that Cannon will be his new education adviser. Cannon will earn $105,000 a year. That’s about five times what a legislator makes. Congratulations, Ben. It does bring up again the debate over legislators using their jobs as platforms to leap to positions as state executives. Cannon even voted this past session for a bill that could have blocked the kind of move he just made. He told The Oregonian on Tuesday he could not explain why he voted for it. Memory loss is a serious issue. We’re not doctors, but maybe we can help. The poster legislators for that bill were former state Sen. Margaret Carter and former state Rep. Larry Galizio. Both went from their positions in the Legislature to much better-paid positions as state bureaucratic executives. Nobody else was interviewed for their jobs. There may not have been any backscratching or

trading votes for jobs. It didn’t look good. Some legislators wanted to put a stop to it with a bill to prevent any such trading. As for Cannon, he is certainly smart. He was a Rhodes scholar. He’s a private school teacher. He’s also articulate and passionate. We’d be remiss if we did not also take a moment to highlight one of Cannon’s legislative lowlights. It was Cannon who came up with the peachy idea to raise money for the state by running up the state’s beer tax by 1,900 percent. It would have made Oregon’s beer tax the highest in the country. Humbled by opposition, he later came back with a scaled-down version. We hope Cannon will give Kitzhaber better ideas on education. But frankly, if Kitzhaber wants Cannon advising him, Kitzhaber should have him. There’s a difference between what Carter and Galizio did moving into state bureaucracy and what Cannon has done to move into a new role. Cannon’s new job is essentially a political appointee within the governor’s office. That should be permitted. For the kinds of jobs Carter and Galizio took, the state should at least be interviewing multiple candidates.

My Nickel’s Worth Obama has achieved much “Bama bashers” such as Alfred Ferguson, who wrote an In My View that appeared Aug. 8, claim superior knowledge, morals and experience, but routinely fail to establish their own credibility. They charge that our president lacks experience, legitimate citizenship and leadership. This administration has faced organized opposition from the outset — rants about the president’s failure to meet critics’ standards of excellence, and that ignore his accomplishments and personal standards, are exhibited to the world daily. Where else have we seen a nationally elected president “welcomed” by congressional leaders’ vows to make the president’s failure their No. 1 priority? The unacknowledged “elephant in their room” is our president’s ethnicity — he’s not their color! The president has restrained emotional retorts, exhibiting a deep desire to make American interests the focus of his efforts at compromise, and he has shown a willingness to forgo personal ambitions to accomplish national goals. What is there about his desire for social justice that disturbs others? Also, though it is true that poor people don’t hire workers and expand our economy, it is also true that those who should be hiring are not motivated by altruism; profit is their primary goal. It is the poor who make that profit possible. That is why our rich and fortunate should support America with their riches. Many workers pay more than 15 percent of their income in taxes; why shouldn’t those who don’t work pay more than 15 percent for their cap-

ital dividends and financial manipulation? Seems fair to me! Billy W. Hardin Terrebonne

Ron Paul for president I agreed with Ross Douthat’s column, “President Obama diminished in debt fight,” published Aug. 7 in The Bulletin, until I read his last paragraph: “This leaves Americans to contemplate two possibilities more alarming than debt-ceiling brinkmanship. First, that we’re living through yet another failed presidency. And second, that there’s nobody waiting in the wings who’s up to the task either.” Wrong! There is a statesman in Congress who is up to the task and has been warning us for over 20 years about the debt crisis we are now experiencing. This man has been right in voting against so many of the fiascoes that this nation has embarked upon, and yet he has been marginalized by his own party (GOP) and the press. That statesman is Ron Paul, who is running for president, but you’d never know it from the lack of coverage he gets from the press. You can see the fear in Tim Geithner’s and Ben Bernanke’s eyes when Paul questions them during congressional hearings, because they know that Paul is onto the scheme of the banksters and the Federal Reserve — the scheme of privatizing their profits and socializing their losses onto the little taxpayers. People, wake up! Ron Paul is the one man who is up to the job of running this country the way it should be run. Check out his record and then give him your support. Don’t let others tell you who should be elected. Do your own thinking! Mary L. Myers Bend

Start cutting somewhere I disagree with the overall mild tone of The Bulletin’s editorial piece regarding the U.S. Postal Service (“Saving a piece of the small-town post office,” Aug. 5, 2011). First, it is not merely that the post office isn’t “financially independent”; it rarely, if ever, has been! Then there is the following regarding reduced service: “The agency continues to look at dropping Saturday home (and business) delivery....” Next we are told that “There’s been talk of cutting delivery to just three days per week, something the postal service will consider in as few as 15 years.” This “looking at,” “talking about” and “considering” have been going on for too many years already. Had these measures been implemented in a responsible and timely manner by those charged with doing just that, normal attrition and retirements would have long ago cut postal costs dramatically. On a related point, this citizen finds it increasingly tiresome to hear dozens of government cost-cutting proposals advanced over the past two and a half years consistently derided by various politicians and pundits as being too meager, not enough to “make a dent,” only a “drop in the bucket.” Well, news flash, enough drops will, without fail, fill a bucket and, as the late distinguished Sen. Everett Dirksen is credited with saying: “A billion here a billion there, and soon you’re talking about real money!” The start of an American solution does not begin with, “Well, we just can’t....” That’s not how we do great things.

U.S. credit rating downgrade a portrait of political failure By Emily Skarbek McClatchy-Tribune News Service

S

tandard & Poor’s decision to downgrade America’s credit rating from AAA to AA+ says far more about our dysfunctional political system than about U.S. markets. Washington is injecting uncertainty and instability into an economy that otherwise can be quiet resilient in the face of change. Many businesses are doing well and making profits. But the economy isn’t growing because businesses are uncertain about how to best use those profits and other resources. It’s the uncertainty over government policy and action that causes investors to lose confidence in the market. For example, imagine a firm earning a 6 percent return on investment. If the owner is unsure how much the new health care legislation will cost him, he will forgo hiring new workers

or reinvesting his profits in job-creating technology. Virtually everything Washington has done for the past eight years has been seen by business as a long-term threat to American prosperity. The previous administration brought us into two wars and passed costly policies such as the Medicare drug benefit provision. The current administration picked up where George W. Bush left off, adding reckless monetary policies and bailouts to boot. These and other actions have left our government drowning in debt — a projected $15 trillion by the end of this year — and have left businesses hamstrung by regulation, bureaucratic micromanagement and uncertainty. S&P did not downgrade the U.S. economy — it downgraded America’s politicians and political order. In April, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner acknowledged that investors were nervous about the government’s

fiscal condition and the political establishment’s inability to deal with it. “Washington is a hard place to read. And it’s hard for people to look past the political rhetoric and try to understand whether the leadership of Washington is going to take the tough steps necessary to get ahead of this problem,” he told Fox News. When S&P expressed similar concerns, Geithner more or less disregarded the ratings agency, publicly stating there was “no risk” of a U.S. credit downgrade provided Congress raised the debt ceiling. Congress raised the ceiling, but did not mitigate the risk. As Binyamin Appelbaum correctly noted in The New York Times soon after the debt deal was sealed, the deal “does not actually reduce federal spending. Indeed, both the government and its debts will continue to grow more quickly than the U.S. economy.” Standard & Poor’s wasn’t fooled.

In response to the downgrade, Geithner claimed that S&P had demonstrated “a stunning lack of knowledge about basic U.S. fiscal budget math” and had “handled themselves very poorly.” But it’s not S&P who had handled themselves poorly; it’s our political leaders. And it’s our political leaders as well who have ignored federal budget math: year after year, with few exceptions, producing large budget deficits. My colleague, economic historian Robert Higgs, has written extensively about the conditions that caused and prolonged the Great Depression. Higgs’ research, confirmed by others, shows that President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s policies, rather than jump-starting the crippled economy, prolonged the Depression by reducing investor confidence and raising questions about the durability of private property rights. As several presidents have reminded us at various times: A government big enough

to supply us with everything we need is a government big enough to take away everything we have. While the experts speculate on the likelihood of another recession, a socalled “double-dip,” the lesson of the S&P downgrade is that government is the problem, not the solution. The bailouts, quantitative easing, stimulus, and excessive spending have done little, if anything, to ease our economic woes. What they have done is add political uncertainty, and that is ruining the economy. Washington needs to back off and stand down. The only way out of the current mess is a principled commitment to smaller government, coupled with deep, structural cuts in entitlement spending and defense. Emily Skarbek is a research fellow at The Independent Institute and assistant professor of economics at San Jose State University.

Creed Black, CEO of Knight Foundation By Elinor J. Brecher McClatchy Newspapers

MIAMI — Creed Carter Black, the Kentucky-born veteran journalist who headed the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation through most of the 1990s, died Tuesday morning in Miami. Born in July 1925, he was 86. Black, a U.S. Army veteran of World War II who hailed from in Eastern Kentucky’s coal region, began his career at the Paducah Sun, in Western Kentucky when he was 17. He went to war in 1943 after graduating from high school.

Retired Army Col. Charles P. Murray Jr., 89 By Emily Langer The Washington Post

Retired Army Col. Charles P. Murray Jr., who received the Medal of Honor for single-handedly overcoming a force of 200 German soldiers during a World War II battle in France, died Aug. 12 at his home in Columbia, S.C. He was 89 and had congestive heart failure. Murray was a 23-year-old lieutenant with just a few months of battle experience on Dec. 16, 1944, the day he displayed the “supreme courage and heroic initiative” that earned him the nation’s highest award for military valor. He had joined the 3rd Infantry Division in France in 1944 after the Normandy invasion that June. Over the course of several brutal days in December, casualties thinned the ranks above him. He became the company commander. Besides the Medal of Honor, his decorations included three awards of the Silver Star and two awards of the Bronze Star Medal.

George Devol, 99, robotics pioneer By Frank MacEachern Greenwich Time

GREENWICH, Conn. — George C. Devol, a former Greenwich resident whose groundbreaking work in robotics paved the way for the computerized arms now used in factories around the world, has died at age 99. George C. Devol died Thursday at his home in Wilton, Conn., according to his son Robert. Devol’s invention of the first industrial robot, the Unimate, later became a stable of automotive assembly lines following its introduction at a General Motors plant in New Jersey in 1961. Robert, a Brookfield, Conn., resident, joked that it was a little difficult telling friends and schoolmates in Greenwich when he was growing up what his father did for a living. “What are you going to say? He’s an inventor? I said he was an engineer,” Robert said Tuesday with a laugh. But as his father’s success grew with Unimate — short for “universal automation” — it became easier to say what his father did, Robert said. “By the middle of the ‘60s, I was comfortable in saying he was an inventor. (Friends) would ask what did he invent and I would say, ‘Well, here you go,’” he said about Unimate. While living in Greenwich in 1954 and well before robots would be commonplace in industrial settings, Devol applied for a patent for “programmed article transfer,” which introduced the concept of universal automation. The patent was issued in 1961.

Dr. Fritz Bach, 76, aided in survival after transplants By Douglas Martin New York Times News Service

Dr. Fritz Bach, a physician and medical researcher who helped develop techniques to improve people’s chances of surviving organ and bone marrow transplants, died Sunday at his home in Manchester-bythe-Sea, Mass. He was 76. The cause was cardiac arrest, his son Peter said. In a transplant, a major worry is that the body will reject the new organ. So the goal is to find as compatible a donor as possible. A kidney transplant between identical twins in 1954 had proved to work, but most people needing transplants do not have twins. Bach’s seminal contribution was to develop a process for systematically mixing cells from the patient with cells from potential donors until a donor is found whose cells do not react adversely with those of the patient. The technique provides a measure of how compatible the tissues from the two bodies are likely to be. The more likely, the less the possibility of rejection. In the 1960s, Bach applied his approach to bone marrow, which contains the stem cells that produce the body’s blood cells. In the 1950s, scientists had succeeded in transplanting bone marrow into people whose own marrow had been ravaged by nuclear radiation or cancer-killing chemicals. By the late 1960s, doctors were beginning to try transplants on different kinds of patients. Bach’s techniques made it possible to determine in advance that antibodies from the donor and the patient would not fight to the death. His primary procedure was used twice in 1968. The first use was when Dr. Robert A. Good, considered the father of immunology, saved the life of a 5-month-old boy who had been born with a bone marrow defect. Then Bach led a team that operated on a 2-year-old boy who bled constantly and suffered repeated infections. In both cases, bone marrow from a sister was used for the transplant. In 1975, Bach announced a way to speed up his process of analysis to hours, rather than

days. That made it applicable to transplants of cadaver kidneys, which must be used within 48 hours. Adding to the efficiency of his technique, he described how infection-fighting white blood cells could be classified and frozen for use in screening many potential donors. His work on the compatibility of donors paved the way for experiments that led to the identification of the Major Histocompatibility Complex, a large gene family whose molecules play an important role in the immune system. Fritz Heinz Bach was born into a Jewish family in Vienna on April 5, 1934. After Nazis and their sympathizers attacked Jews in planned riots called Kristallnacht, or Night of Broken Glass, in November 1938, Fritz and his older brother fled to England. They were among nearly 10,000 mainly Jewish children rescued by the British and put in the care of British families. They later reunited with their family in Bath, England. An American soldier sponsored their emigration to the United States, and they settled in Burlington, Vt. Bach graduated from Harvard in 1955 with a degree in physical science. He studied medicine at Washington University in St. Louis and Harvard Medical School, from which he received an M.D. in 1960. He taught and did research at the University of Wisconsin, the University of Minnesota and the Columbia and Harvard medical schools. He published more than 800 scientific papers. Bach was married twice, to Marilyn Lee Brenner and Jeanne Elizabeth Gose. Survivors include his six children, David, Peter, Wendy, Kathryn, Erika and Dana, all of whom have his last name; and four grandchildren. In recent years, Bach was concerned with transplanting pig organs to humans as a way to alleviate a persistent shortage in organs to transplant. He worried that swine tissue could unleash new diseases in humans, and did scientific research on ways to stop this. He advised proceeding, but methodically, and involving the public — not just experts — in making decisions about literally mixing species.

Pete Pihos, 87, Eagles hall of fame receiver By Richard Goldstein New York Times News Service

Pete Pihos could do just about anything on a football field. A member of both the College and Pro Football Halls of Fame, he was an outstanding pass-catcher, a powerful runner and a formidable blocker, helping to take the Philadelphia Eagles to two consecutive National Football League championships in the 1940s. But a half-century after his playing days ended, Pihos had become debilitated by Alzheimer’s disease. His former wife Donna Pihos tried to raise money for his care by selling his memorabilia, only to be victimized by a swindle. A joint NFL-players union fund aiding former players with dementia later contributed to the bulk of Pete Pihos’ treatment costs at the Grace Healthcare nursing home in Winston-Salem, N.C., where he spent his final years. Pete Pihos died there Tuesday at 87, Donna Pihos said. She said that a neurologist who treated him believed that his dementia resulted from football contact. “We have footage of his being banged in the head over and over,” Donna Pihos said Tuesday. Peter Louis Pihos was born Oct. 22, 1923, in Orlando, Fla., but grew up in Chicago. He was an all-American end at Indiana University in 1943,

served in the Army during World War II, then returned to Indiana in 1945, when he won all-American honors again, this time at fullback on an unbeaten team. Pihos played on the Eagles team that won the 1948 NFL championship, defeating the Chicago Cardinals, 7-0, in a snowstorm. When the Eagles played the Los Angeles Rams in the 1949 title game, Pihos opened the scoring on a muddy, rain-swept Los Angeles Coliseum field with a 31-yard reception and run in a 14-0 victory. “When he gets his hands on a ball, there isn’t much the defense can do,” Eagles Coach Greasy Neale was quoted saying in “The Eagles Encyclopedia.” “He just runs over people.” Pihos, who missed only one game in his nine seasons in the NFL, won first-team AllPro honors five times and led the NFL in receptions from 1953 to 1955, his final season. He caught 373 passes overall for 5,619 yards and 61 touchdowns, and sometimes played defensive end as well. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1970. He was an assistant at Tulane University and a sales manager for a North Carolina construction company after his playing days. In his early 80s, disabled with Alzheimer’s, Pihos was living on his NFL pension and Social Security.

3 FIREFIGHTERS INJURED IN GASTON MILL FIRE

Idaho seeking management of federal lands The Associated Press BOISE, Idaho — Idaho’s rural counties want Washington, D.C., to let the state manage federal land as a way to boost their finances amid threats to a program that has propped up local budgets for nearly a decade. But to some environmental groups and others, the plan smacks of previous efforts by Idaho to take over public land from the federal government that failed. The Idaho Land Board, with support from Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, on Tuesday threw its support behind a pilot program to place 200,000 acres of national forests under state Department of Lands’ oversight. The Idaho Statesman reported the state would manage the land to benefit rural counties. For eight years, counties have been the beneficiaries of a federal law that has replaced dwindling timber sale receipts. It sends about $13.7 million annually to Idaho. But with national debt cutting a priority, that money is in doubt. “You had me at good morning,” Otter said at Tuesday’s Land Board meeting, on his backing of the initiative.

Will the U.S. budge? Despite Idaho’s support, environmental groups and others are skeptical the federal government will turn over national forest land to state hands. John Freemuth, a Boise State University political science professor, served on a panel organized by Idaho a decade ago called the Federal Lands Task Force that came up with similar ideas. He quit that effort when its members, mostly supporters of the timber and grazing industries, refused to recognize national interests in those lands. While this latest proposal keeps national forests under federal ownership, Freemuth still isn’t convinced it’s that different from what was proposed 10

“We’re interested in finding solutions, but this presents a lot of challenges that are going to be hard to overcome.” — John McCarthy, Boise representative with the Wilderness Society

years ago. “What this does is builds barricades again,” Freemuth said. The Wilderness Society says getting the federal government to agree will be difficult. “We’re interested in finding solutions, but this presents a lot of challenges that are going to be hard to overcome,” said John McCarthy, one of the group’s representatives in Boise. For eight years, the Secure Rural Schools and Community SelfDetermination Act has helped replace revenues for counties and school districts located in areas with a lot of federal forest but where timber sale receipts that had traditionally fueled local government had all be evaporated. The act is informally named “Craig-Wyden” after former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho and U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, who helped win its passage. With deep federal budget cuts coming, the future of the funds is in doubt. Supporters of Idaho’s proposed pilot program say if the money evaporates, they’ll need to find a replacement — or else. “It will leave us no choice but to cut services or raise taxes,” said Dan Denning, a commissioner in heavily forested Boundary County in Idaho’s far north, on the Canadian border. “The goal is to get us away from those federal payments,” said Gordon Cruickshank, chairman of the Valley County Commission.

Gaston Fire Department

Firefighters prepare to battle a two-alarm fire at the Stimson Lumber mill in Gaston on Tuesday. Three firefighters were injured in an explosion that occurred more than two hours after the initial call to a fire in the powerhouse at the mill. The Gaston Rural Fire District says one fire-

fighter was taken to Oregon Health and Science University Hospital in Portland. Another Gaston firefighter and one Yamhill firefighter were taken to Tuality Community Hospital in Hillsboro. All three have been released. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

SALEM — Health officials confirmed Wednesday that deer droppings are the source of an Oregon E. coli outbreak linked to strawberries. Researchers at the Oregon Public Health Division found that six samples of deer feces matched the E. coli found in people who were infected. The outbreak killed one elderly woman and sickened 14 others from northwestern Oregon. Jaquith Strawberry Farm produced the berries from the affected fields in Washington and Yamhill counties. The berries were sold to buyers who resold them at roadside stands and farmers markets. It’s been known since 1995 that deer can carry E. coli, but investigators don’t know why the bacterium hasn’t, until now, shown up in strawberries anywhere in the U.S. E. coli has been linked to other foods, such as alfalfa sprouts, spinach and apple cider.

Suddenly, an acrobatic Atlantic salmon jumped out of the water and soared over Salaz’s oar before splashing back in. “I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that before,” said Salaz, a fishing guide for Cascade Guides & Outfitters in Sunriver. “He cleared it, man.” We hoped it was a sign that our fortunes would soon change — and it was. After that, a somewhat slow afternoon of fly-fishing turned into a hot evening, as the Atlantic salmon began flopping out of the water to feed on caddis. About 40 miles southwest of Bend near Elk Lake, Hosmer Lake is one of the most beautiful water bodies in Central Oregon. The crystal-clear lake, 12 feet at its deepest, serves as a massive aquarium for watching its primary

residents — brook trout and Atlantic salmon — swim. Most of the fish congregate in the weed-lined channel that separates the northern and southern pools of the lake, which is restricted to flyfishing with barbless hooks. Hosmer — a popular place for float-tubers and kayakers, and for bird-watchers, who come to see osprey and all kinds of waterfowl

— provides fly anglers a unique opportunity to catch Atlantic salmon. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife each year stocks Hosmer with 3,000 half-pound Atlantic salmon from Wizard Falls Hatchery on the Metolius River. Normally, broodstock are captured and spawned at Hosmer Lake in November, and the eggs are returned to the hatchery for incubation. For the 2009 brood year, eggs were purchased form Grand Lake Hatchery in Maine. Atlantic salmon, which must be released when caught, were the majority of our catch Tuesday evening. Brook trout, which are included in the five-trout daily limit for all Oregon lakes, tend to be more catchable during the fall and sometimes swim in schools, according to Salaz. “Brookies (brook trout) can be really picky,” he said. “They sit on the bottom of the channel and are really timid. The Atlantics (Atlantic salmon) are easily excitable. They’re a lot more aggressive.” See Hosmer / D5

INDEX

he Bend South Little League All-Stars’ 2011 season started without much fanfare in January with batting practice sessions at the Bend Fieldhouse. It ended in front of 4,000 fans in the final game of the Little League Northwest Regional Tournament in San Bernardino, Calif., with former Major League All-Star Aaron Boone calling the game live on ESPN. Yeah, it was a pretty awesome year. During a nine-day stretch over the past two weeks, Bend South went on an amazing run of baseball that ended one victory short of the Little League World Series. The kids from High Desert, Cascade and Seven Peaks middle schools put on a Major League-quality performance in California, raising the bar and profile for future Central Oregon Little League teams.

Ernie Els is currently on the bubble for the FedEx Cup playoffs, at 126th place in the standings. Matt Slocum / The Associated Press

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Wyndham Championship has attracted one of its best fields, partly out of desperation from some players. The final tournament before the start of the PGA Tour’s playoffs offers one last chance for players to climb the FedEx Cup rankings and claim a spot in The Barclays. Several could use a big week in North Carolina. Ernie Els, who enters at No. 126, wrote on his official website that this is “last-chance saloon.” Padraig Harrington is No. 130, four points behind No. 125 Camillo Villegas in the race to make golf’s postseason. “I hope that I’ll be the fairy tale story, but any of us guys who are slightly outside the FedEx Cup at the moment, if we qualify, we can go on and win” the playoffs, Harrington said Wednesday. “That’s the whole idea ... that anybody who is in the top 125 has a chance of winning it outright and being the best player of the year. So, if myself or Ernie or any of the guys actually make it in, and we hit our A-games for four weeks, all of a sudden, we can be the FedEx Cup champion.” See Playoff / D5

S   B Soccer • Nielsen hit by object as Sporting KC tops Timbers: Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen came within 10 minutes of a shutout despite being hit in the head by an object thrown from the stands, and Sporting Kansas City beat the Portland Timbers 3-1 on Wednesday night in Kansas City. Graham Zusi scored twice and Soony Saad marked his 19th birthday and his MLS debut with another goal for Sporting K.C. (8-7-9). Portland (7-12-5) lost its second straight. Zusi scored his second in the 40th, tapping in Troy Perkins’ save of Teal Bunbury’s shot for a 2-0 lead. Saad, a second-half sub, scored in the 72nd minute when he deflected Eric Brunner’s clearance attempt over Perkins. Bright Dike’s goal in the 81st broke up Nielsen’s shutout bid.

Tennis • Serena Williams withdraws, No. 1 Wozniacki loses: Serena Williams dropped out of the Western & Southern Open because of a sore toe Wednesday, her latest setback after nearly a year away from the court. The tournament also lost top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki on Wednesday afternoon. Wozniacki dropped her opening match for the second consecutive week, falling to American Christina McHale 6-4, 7-5 in the second round. Third-seeded Victoria Azarenka withdrew before her evening match because of a strained right hand. In the men’s bracket, top-ranked Novak Djokovic beat American Ryan Harrison 6-2, 6-3. No. 2 Rafael Nadal beat French qualifier Julien Benneteau 6-4, 7-5 while playing with two fingers on his right hand bandaged to protect burned fingertips.

Football • NFL fines Lions’ Suh $20K for slamming Bengals QB: Ndamukong Suh has been fined a third time for roughing up three different quarterbacks in less than a year. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle doesn’t plan to change his game. “Not by any means,” he said Wednesday after he was fined $20,000 by the NFL for a hit on Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton last week. He didn’t like it much, tweeting: “$20,000REALLY???!!!” The former Nebraska star said he plans to appeal the fine. • Southeastern Conference ADs mum on expansion: Tennessee’s interim athletics director says she is referring all questions about possible expansion of the Southeastern Conference to the league’s commissioner. At the SEC’s annual meeting of athletic directors, Tennessee’s Joan Cronan said the ADs are deferring all questions about expansion to the commissioner. Several other SEC athletic directors declined any comment. Meetings conclude today. Reports continue to swirl this week about Texas A&M possibly becoming the SEC’s 13th member. Florida president and SEC president and chancellors committee chairman Bernie Machen said recently that though they are satisfied with their current alignment, future conditions may make it advantageous to expand. • NCAA: We’ve been investigating Miami for five months: The NCAA said Wednesday it has been investigating the relationship between a convicted Ponzi scheme artist and the University of Miami for five months, and the allegations — if true — show the need for “serious and fundamental change” in college sports. Former booster Nevin Shapiro, now serving 20 years in federal prison, claims he treated players with sex parties, nightclub outings, cars and other gifts. Shapiro told Yahoo Sports he provided improper benefits to 72 football players and other athletes at Miami from 2002 to 2010. “If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct

at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports,” NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement. The Hurricanes’ entire football team took the practice field Wednesday, even though Shapiro’s claims involve several current players. • Eagles WR Maclin moves past cancer scare: Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who still hasn’t practiced yet, has been cleared to return to the team after a cancer scare, trainer Rick Burkholder said Wednesday. Burkholder said, barring a setback, Maclin will return to practice within 10 days and should be able to play in the Sept. 11 opener at St. Louis. Burkholder said Maclin began experiencing symptoms in March synonomous with lymphoma, a form of cancer. But five months of testing to determine the cause were inconclusive. Maclin, 23, caught 70 passes for 964 yards and 10 touchdowns last year. • Former Bills LB Maybin signs, practices with Jets: Aaron Maybin wasted no time getting on the field with his new team. The former Buffalo Bills first-round pick agreed to terms with the New York Jets on Wednesday morning, passed his physical a few hours later and signed a one-year deal — all in time to practice in the afternoon. The once-promising linebacker was waived by Buffalo on Monday after two disappointing seasons in which he had no sacks and never made it into the starting lineup. The Jets will give Maybin the opportunity to fulfill the potential he showed when the Bills made him the 11th overall pick in 2009 out of Penn State. • Lions QB Stafford reworked deal to clear cap space: Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford says he was in favor of restructuring his contract to help the team clear cap space to sign other players. Stafford spoke in vague terms about his new deal Tuesday after details were reported by the Detroit Free Press and Crain’s Detroit Business. The Detroit Free Press reported Stafford and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch, who also restructured his contract, helped the Lions clear about $8.5 million in cap space. • Browns’ Cribbs upset with kickoff rule change: Josh Cribbs has figured out a way to combat the NFL’s rule changes on kickoffs. He’ll return everything. Cleveland’s dynamic return specialist, Cribbs, the league’s career leader with eight kickoff return touchdowns, has been openly critical of the decision to move the kickoff line from the 30-yard line to the 35. The change was made to prevent violent collisions and injuries, and could lead to more touchbacks. But Cribbs said there’s no statistical evidence to support the need for change, and he’s disappointed the league didn’t consult players before making the adjustment during the lockout.

Boxing • Mayweather, others sued in Vegas shooting incident: Superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is facing a civil lawsuit from a pair of men who say he orchestrated a shooting attack on them two years ago outside a Las Vegas skating rink. The lawsuit obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press accuses Mayweather, Ocie Harris and others of making threats since the attack. Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, said the undefeated boxer had nothing to do with the shooting or any of the alleged acts. A lawyer for Harris, who is accused of firing shots in the incident, was not immediately available for comment. Harris has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges in the shooting. His trial is scheduled for February. —F r o m wire reports

• Rays 4, Red Sox 0: BOSTON — David Price pitched eight crisp innings, B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria homered and Tampa Bay held Boston to three hits for the third straight game. Price (11-10) struck out six and walked three before Kyle Farnsworth worked a perfect ninth. • Athletics 6, Orioles 5: OAKLAND, Calif. — Kurt Suzuki hit two solo homers and right fielder David DeJesus cut down pinch runner Blake Davis at the plate to end the game, preserving Oakland’s victory. It was the second career multihomer game for Suzuki, who connected in the second and sixth against Alfredo Simon (3-6). • Indians 4, White Sox 1: CHICAGO — Fausto Carmona allowed four hits over 8 1⁄3 innings and Cleveland beat the Chicago White Sox. The win kept Chicago from passing the Indians and moving into second place in the AL Central. • Twins 6, Tigers 5: DETROIT — Justin Morneau’s bases-loaded single in the ninth inning gave Minnesota a victory over first-place Detroit. With the game tied at 4, Rene Tosoni led off the top of the ninth with a single off Jose Valverde (2-4). Tsuyoshi Nishioka and Ben Revere both reached when the Tigers misplayed sacrifice bunts. • Royals 5, Yankees 4: KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon hit a three-run home run, Billy Butler added a contested solo shot and Kansas City survived a harrowing ninth inning to beat the New York Yankees and avoid a three-game sweep. Bruce Chen (8-5) went six innings and beat the Yankees for just the second time in seven career decisions. • Blue Jays 5, Mariners 1: SEATTLE — Brandon Morrow allowed three hits and one run over six innings and Toronto connected for three home runs in a victory over Seattle. Morrow (9-7), who didn’t allow a hit until there were two outs in the fourth, struck out a season-high 12. It’s the fourth time this season he has fanned 10 or more. • Rangers 4, Angels 3: ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ian Kinsler hit a tiebreaking two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning, and Texas rallied for its third straight victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Mitch Moreland homered and Josh Hamilton hit a run-scoring single for the Rangers, who took a commanding seven-game lead over the Angels in the AL West with their sixth consecutive win to open a 10-game road trip.

• Giants 7, Braves 5: ATLANTA — Matt Cain snapped his three-game losing streak with five-hit ball over eight innings, and San Francisco barely avoided another loss to Atlanta in the final at-bat. The Giants broke it open with four runs in the fourth, one of them driven in by Cain (10-9) on a sacrifice fly. • Mets 7, Padres 3: SAN DIEGO — David Wright hit a three-run homer and Angel Pagan had three RBIs as the New York Mets won their first series in San Diego in more than nine years. Rookie Dillon Gee (11-4) limited the Padres to one run on five hits. • Phillies 9, D’backs 2: PHILADELPHIA — Cliff Lee threw seven impressive innings, Wilson Valdez hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the seventh and Philadelphia snapped Arizona’s seven-game winning streak. Lee (13-7) allowed two runs and three hits, striking out seven. • Reds 2, Nationals 1: WASHINGTON — Johnny Cueto pitched into the ninth inning and Joey Votto homered to lead Cincinnati over Washington. Cueto (9-5) held the Nationals scoreless until Ryan Zimmerman homered on his first pitch of the ninth. • Cardinals 7, Pirates 2: PITTSBURGH — Allen Craig homered twice to break out of a slump and lead St. Louis over Pittsburgh. Craig went four for five with three RBIs, and Yadier Molina added three hits for the Cardinals, who are trying to stay within shouting distance of front-running Milwaukee in the NL Central. • Rockies 12, Marlins 5: DENVER — Aaron Cook pitched effectively into the eighth inning, and Carlos Gonzalez’s three-run homer highlighted a powerful offensive display that sent Colorado to victory. Cook (3-7) had gotten only four runs of support in his previous four outings. • Astros 4, Cubs 3: HOUSTON — Matt Downs hit a go-ahead two-run single, Mark Melancon wriggled out of a jam in the ninth inning and Houston beat the Chicago Cubs to take the series between the worst teams in the NL Central. • Brewers 3, Dodgers 1: MILWAUKEE — Zack Greinke won his fifth straight start and Jerry Hairston singled in two runs to lift surging Milwaukee to its 19th victory in 21 games. Rookie Nathan Eovaldi (1-1) was the loser.

Inherited runners-scored—S.Downs 2-0. IBB—off E.Santana (Moreland). T—2:52. A—36,581 (45,389).

Tigers’ Verlander winning his way to Cy Young award By Drew Sharp Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — ustin Verlander’s 120th pitch Tuesday night hit 98 miles per hour. Manager Jim Leyland saw enough. He let his ace throw one more pitch and then took him out, giving Verlander the standing ovation from the appreciative Comerica Park crowd he deserved. But the reaction was more genuflection. They paid homage to the next American League Cy Young Award winner. Is there any doubt that he’s the runaway leader as the season approaches the final turn? Verlander’s 18th win Tuesday night was his 14th win following a Tigers loss this season. That’s the equivalent of setting up an appointment with the engraver. It’s etched in gold plate. It’s a done deal. But it’s now worth advancing the argument beyond the best pitcher in the American League to the most important player in the American League. Verlander merits serious consideration for MVP. He has heard the rumblings. “It’s kind of fun to feed off that a little bit,” he said following the Tigers’ 7-1 victory over Minnesota, “but at the same time, it’s second to what we have going here.” It’s still primarily about winning the division and getting back to the World Series, but it can’t be ignored that Verlander has become one of the premier commodities in baseball this season. When he takes the ball, everyone pays attention. The Tigers had a sellout crowd Tuesday night. I’m sure the playoff chase contributed to that number, but nobody can dismiss how Verlander taking the mound puts extra tails in the seats. “He’s a pretty valuable commodity, much more valuable than the manager,

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander throws a warm-up pitch against the Minnesota Twins in the second inning of Tuesday’s baseball game in Detroit. The Tigers won, 7-1, as Verlander claimed his 18th victory of the season. I can assure you,” Leyland said. Leyland said he would like to see an MVP award for the most valuable pitcher as well as the most valuable player. He believes that no matter how dominant a starting pitcher, the MVP should recognize the everyday player who must produce at a high level on a regular basis. But he was nonetheless impressed with how Verlander recovered from a shaky first inning when he threw 29 pitches. “It’s all about his maturity and his ability to work through any early difficulties,” Leyland said. The four times the Tigers have won the World Series they had the AL MVP: Hank Greenberg in 1935, Hal Newhouser in 1945, Denny McLain in 1968 and Willie Hernandez in 1984. The last time a starting pitcher won the MVP was Roger Clemens in 1986

with Boston, but the last time a starting pitcher even garnered a first-place vote was Johan Santana with Minnesota in 2006. At the very least, Verlander should get some first-place votes should the Tigers win the Central. He admitted that he didn’t have it Tuesday night. That has occurred with more frequency in recent outings, but it only speaks further to his excellence this season. Forget the aesthetics. It’s all about stopping losing streaks and pushing the Tigers one step closer to the division title. Verlander’s grinding right now. As each game grows in importance, grinding becomes as important — if not more so — than dominating. Every time Verlander takes the ball, there’s the very real possibility of a third career no-hitter. But it’s more important now that he simply wins games.

NCAA has more to deal with than Miami By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press

S

trippers, prostitutes, decadent parties on the yacht. If all the allegations against the University of Miami turn out to be true, the NCAA may have to add another chapter to the rule book when it comes to defining what exactly constitutes extra benefits for college athletes. Not to worry, though. The organization is already on the case, and no doubt will be helped along by an extraordinarily detailed Yahoo Sports expose of a Miami athletic program where cash was king and the partying never seemed to stop. No word yet on whether they put Inspector Clouseau or Barney Fife in charge, but for five months the NCAA has been diligently conducting its own probe of the Hurricanes and this time it means business. It really does. “If the assertions are true, the alleged conduct at the University of Miami is an illustration of the need for serious and fundamental change in many critical aspects of college sports,” NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement. Just what those changes might be, Emmert didn’t say. Certainly, though, prostitutes and strippers weren’t at the top of the agenda when presidents of major universities met last week in what was supposed to be a first step in reforming major college athletics. Some good did come out of that meeting, most notably a measure to boost graduation rates along with a possible postseason ban for teams that don’t measure up. But the scandal unfolding at Miami illustrates how a program can openly flaunt rules for years with little fear of the consequences. For that to change, someone has to be in charge of college athletics. And, despite all of Emmert’s tough talk, it’s clear the NCAA isn’t. The big conferences control the big bowls. Television money dictates who plays where and when and in what conference. Wealthy boosters chase after the most coveted coaches with fistfuls of cash. And all the NCAA does is slap a few hands once in a while when it has no other choice. That’s not to say Miami will get off easy once the NCAA finishes its investigation. The Yahoo Sports report is so damaging that the football program could be grounded for years based on it alone. There will surely even be a call for the NCAA’s so-called “death penalty,” which has not been used since the

COLLEGE FOOTBALL C O M M E N TA RY Southern Methodist University football program was decimated by it a quartercentury ago. If ever a program deserves to be shut down, Miami might be the one, given the range of accusations made by convicted Ponzi con man and Miami booster Nevin Shapiro and told to Yahoo Sports. Based on his tell-all, there wasn’t much that top football players and other athletes at Miami lacked for over the years. Most boosters hand out $100 bills. Shapiro went much further, treating players to strip club parties, paying for prostitutes and catering to their every need. In one case, Shapiro told the website, he even paid for an abortion for a woman one of his players had impregnated. Much of it allegedly happened under the watch of former Miami athletic director Paul Dee, who would go on to — no, we’re not making this up — become chairman of the NCAA’s committee on infractions. It was from that position last year that Dee came down hard on the University of Southern California in the Reggie Bush case, saying then that “higher-profile players require higherprofile monitoring.” It the allegations prove correct, that makes Dee either a hypocrite or someone who was stunningly unaware of what was taking place right under his nose. Either way, it doesn’t do much to inspire confidence in the enforcement efforts of the NCAA. Ultimately, though, enforcement problems are the least of the NCAA’s worries. The real trouble in college sports runs a lot deeper than players getting caught selling jerseys or boosters handing out cash or seats on a yacht. The NCAA has lost control over big money sports, especially football, and seems powerless to get it back. There is so much money flowing into college football these days that schools and conferences have little incentive to do anything but pay lip service to the organization and its ideas about athletes getting an education and graduating with real degrees. Emmert says he wants to change that, and so far in his short term as NCAA president he should get credit for at least talking a good game. Achieving real reform, though, will be a lot tougher than simply cleaning up the mess in Miami.

Oregon coach: QB Thomas will not be punished for Harris incident By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

Brad Keselowski does a burnout as he celebrates his win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup last week in Long Pond, Pa.

“Bad Brad” Keselowski not so bad anymore By John Kekis The Associated Press

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — His left racing shoe untied to ease the pressure on his sore ankle, Brad Keselowski limped ever-so-slightly out of the No. 2 Penske Racing hauler and plopped down in a director’s chair. Another day at the track was over, but the pain from his broken ankle and bruised back wasn’t getting any better. Not after two sessions of NASCAR Cup practice over the grueling, 11-turn road course at Watkins Glen. “I’m here and driving, so it can’t be too bad, right?” Keselowski said with a pained smile. “It feels better, but it definitely doesn’t feel much better than last weekend. Driving is obviously hell on it, but we’re going to tough it out. I can make it work.” Keselowski was injured during a testing session two weeks ago when the brakes on his No. 2 Dodge failed and he slammed head-on into a wall at Road Atlanta that did not have an energy-absorbing barrier. Data showed he was traveling about 100 mph at time of impact. Since then, he’s held off nemesis Kyle Busch to win at Pocono and finished second at Watkins Glen International on Monday — one spot ahead of Busch and just behind winner Marcos Ambrose in a thrilling green-whitecheckered finish. If not for a bump from Ambrose, one of the best road racers in NASCAR, that nudged him aside at the end of the race, Keselowski would have had his third win of the season on a track where he was making just his second Sprint Cup start. “It shows how dedicated he is,” crew

chief Paul Wolfe said. “I don’t think he’s going to let anybody down.” A year ago, Keselowski, a third-generation racer, was well on his way to winning the Nationwide Series title. But he was struggling mightily in his first full season in Cup, battling to earn the respect of his fellow drivers. That’s all changed this season. “I think I’m slowly becoming more competitive, and as you become more competitive you get more respect from your competitors and things just get easier,” Keselowski said. “You don’t have to fight so many different things. The biggest thing overall is just time. “I’m getting more respect. I don’t know how to quantify that, but I just know that things are getting easier. That makes you look a lot better when things get easier.” Excelling while driving hurt the past two races made the 27-year-old Keselowski seem like a throwback, if his actions on track already hadn’t. “Brad came in a little too worried about all that, concerned that he wasn’t going to be getting (respect), and I think that bothered him,” said 18-year Cup veteran Jeff Burton. “Some people come in and don’t even worry about it. You know at some point you’re going to have to have everybody’s respect, but you can’t lose sleep over it. “You’ve got to go and be who you are. You’ve got to race the way you know to race. You’ve got to be true to who you are, and you have to understand that there’s consequences to that, good and bad.” Keselowski’s hard-driving style has repeatedly made it clear he’s no pushover, and there have been consequences. In just his fifth race at NASCAR’s

top level, he snatched his first victory at Talladega Superspeedway when Carl Edwards tried to block his pass for the win as they sped to the checkered flag. Keselowski didn’t lift and the contact with Edwards sent the No. 99 Ford airborne and upside down, sheet metal spewing in his wake as the car sailed into the safety fence in a scary crash. After Keselowski collided again with Edwards at Atlanta, Edwards retaliated by intentionally wrecking Keselowski, sending him airborne. And when Edwards intentionally wrecked “Bad Brad,” causing a frightening accident on the last lap of a Nationwide race at Gateway International Raceway last summer, both were placed on probation for the remainder of the season. Keselowski also angered Kyle Busch in a Nationwide race at Bristol last year while the two were racing for the lead. Busch intentionally spun him and went on to win the race. Keselowski finished 14th. Busch celebrated that win by mockingly rubbing his eyes like a crying baby and was greeted with a chorus of boos. Keselowski promised revenge over the public address system and had some choice words for Busch the next day during driver introductions for the Cup race. Now, all of that seems like ancient history as the Cup series heads to his home state of Michigan. “Last year was a struggle for him,” Burton said. “He started out this year it was a struggle for him, but they’ve rebounded. It took me about a year and a half in this series for it to click, for me to say, ‘Hey, I understand it now.’ I think that’s the time frame he’s in.”

Oregon coach Chip Kelly was emphatic: Quarterback Darron Thomas was not going to be disciplined simply because he was a passenger in a car driven by a teammate that was clocked at 118 mph. And, while concerned about an officer’s suspicion that there was marijuana in the car, Kelly was standing by Thomas and cornerback Cliff Harris, who was driving. But the whole thing was another black eye for Oregon and another in a string of incidents involving Thomas, who has so far come out unscathed. The traffic stop occurred early on June 12, when Harris was pulled over by the Oregon State Police in a rented Nissan Altima near Albany. At the time, Thomas was not identified as a passenger in the car. Harris was cited for speeding and driving on a suspended license. The Altima was rented by a university employee. Kelly soon afterward suspended Harris indefinitely. The junior cornerback will miss Oregon’s opener against LSU at Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 3. After that, his status will be dependent on his adherence to team rules. Harris has been allowed to practice with the team and his family paid the $1,620 in fines for the citation. The university compliance office was looking into whether NCAA rules were broken when the school employee allowed Harris to use the rental car. Except for Harris’ ongoing suspension, it appeared to be over. But then the video from the stop was obtained by KATU television and released on Tuesday. The video not only revealed that Thomas was a passenger, it also shows that the trooper involved in the stop was curious about the smell of marijuana he said was coming from the car. The officer asks: “Who’s got the marijuana?” And a voice from inside the car, presumably Harris’, replies: “We smoked it all.” In a later exchange with the officer it was claimed that someone else in the car — not Harris or Thomas — had used marijuana. No one beside Harris was cited in the traffic stop. Before he allows the players to leave, the trooper gives the players a bit of advice. “You guys are a pretty important part

of the program down there. You want to stay alive and be able to help your teammates out, stay in school and finish school and get on with your life, huh? Driving 118 miles an hour is not the best way to do that,” he said. Thomas has been in the wrong place before. Last summer he was a passenger when then-quarterback Jeremiah Masoli was stopped for a traffic infraction and marijuana was found in the car. Masoli, who had earlier pleaded guilty in connection to an unrelated burglary incident, was later dismissed from the team by Kelly. Thomas was also a passenger in 2008 when linebacker Eddie Pleasant crashed while street racing in Springfield. He was not cited in either of those incidents. After the police video came to light on Tuesday, Kelly defended his quarterback: “I’m not punishing someone for being a passenger.” “Darron Thomas is the leader of this football team,” Kelly also said. “I have absolutely no question about it. Describe his leadership? He’s as good as I’ve been around.” Thomas and Harris were not made available for comment on Tuesday. The Ducks closed practice at Autzen Stadium on Wednesday, something that had already been planned. As a first-year starter last season, Thomas threw for 2,881 yards and 30 touchdowns and ran for five more scores. He directed the speedy spreadoption that helped Oregon reach the BCS championship game and finish 12-1. Thomas’ lone loss as a starter came in the title game against Auburn. Kelly said he believed his players’ claims that the marijuana was not theirs, but admitted that its presence in the car was disquieting. “It always concerns me whenever there’s anything like that around our players,” he said. Oregon has been scrutinized this offseason after questions were raised about a $25,000 payment the Ducks made to Willie Lyles of Houston-based Complete Scouting Services for what appeared to be outdated information about prep football prospects. The payment came after the Ducks got a letter of intent from running back Lache Seastrunk, who had a mentoring relationship with Lyles. The NCAA is looking into whether Oregon broke any rules regarding Lyles and Seastrunk.

PREP NOTEBOOK

C.O. sends baseball gear to Marshall Islands Bulletin staff report Baseball in the Marshall Islands just got a boost from Central Oregon. Sisters High athletic director and football coach Clyde Powell packaged and sent 70 bats, 250 baseballs, 50 batting helmets, 24 sets of catchers’ gear and almost 70 gloves to the small islandchain nation in the western Pacific Ocean. Powell, who has a daughter-inlaw who is Marshallese, called on Bend and the surrounding areas for baseball gear after returning from a trip to the islands earlier this summer. Powell was inspired to help the youth of the country after watching kids playing baseball with only several gloves between both teams. According to Powell, donated equipment filling a total of 16 duffel bags and plastic containers was shipped on Aug. 15. Powell said the Bend Elks, Medfordbased Cascade Athletic Supply and former Major League Baseball player Gene Tenace, a Central Oregon resident, were

key in rounding up the gear. Do It Best Corp., an international hardware chain whose store locations include Sunriver and the Marshall Islands, shipped the equipment at no cost while the Pilot Butte Drive-in in Bend and local Safeway stores provided containers for the baseball gear.

Play ball! Little Leaguers hope to make history at World Series By Genaro C. Armas The Associated Press

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — Montana had never had a team in the Little League World Series. So, a couple weeks ago, 12-year-old Andy Maehl asked his Billings coach if their team was ready to make history. “He kept asking me the question every five minutes,” coach Mark Kieckbusch said Wednesday in recalling the talk with the catcher at the regional tournament. “I thought, ‘ “What are you, crazy?’ ” Prophetic? Yes. Crazy? Not so much. The mashers from Montana have made it all the way to South Williamsport, joining 15 other teams hoping to make the triumphant trot around the Lamade Stadium warning track with a World Series championship banner. First pitch is today, with Taiwan and Mexico leading off a four-game slate. “Just to think, in 65 years,” Maehl said Wednesday after batting practice, “we’re the only team from Montana to do that.” Kieckbusch watched nearby, his shirt soaked in sweat after an hour watching swings in the cage. “To go down as the first Montana team ever,” he said, “that’s really cool.” The 65th World Series is peppered with other intriguing story lines, like the hometown favorites from Clinton County, Pa., who stormed through the Mid-Atlantic region to claim the final berth in the series on Monday. The Keystone Little League boys went straight from the regional final in Bristol, Conn., to the Little League complex, even though their homes are just about 30 miles southwest in rural central Pennsylvania. So, it comes as no surprise to expect a big crowd Friday when Pennsylvania plays LaGrange, Ky., under the lights at Lamade Stadium.

Bend South Continued from D1 Spending almost two weeks in Southern California following Bend South, I was able to witness the Oregon state champs’ jittery opening-game loss to Idaho, their monumental 4-3 semifinal win over tournament-favorite Washington, their championship game defeat to Montana and everything in between. Here are some of the stories that stuck with me after following around Bend’s most famous middle school students for nine days: • Sweet swing: He may be just an eighth grader at Bend’s High Desert Middle School this fall, but Justin Parsons, who hit .400 with a home run and eight runs batted in at the Northwest Regional, has one of the prettiest left-handed swings in the area. A third baseman for Bend South — he throws right handed — Parsons was one of the better hitters in the entire tournament. Watch out for him in a couple of years at the high school level. • Redemption on the mound: The oldest son of Bend South coach Brad Waterman, Cal Waterman bounced back from a rough pitching performance to throw a gem when his team needed it the most. Throwing against Washington in poolplay competition on Aug. 8, Waterman had trouble on the mound in relief of starter Noah Yunker, failing to retire any of the three batters he faced.

“This is really exciting because I’ve been wanting to get here my whole life and play on this field,” Pennsylvania outfielder Mike Keibler, 12, said. “I’ve watched the kids that were on there and it looked like a really cool field.” But the pressure isn’t affecting Keibler or the rest of his teammates. These are mainly 11- and 12-yearolds, after all. “The best thing about the dorms is the games,” he said. “There are video games, there’s ping pong, and my favorite — air hockey.” The World Series format was tweaked slightly this year, with an extra day tacked on to make it an 11-day marathon to championship Sunday on Aug. 28. The change will help give teams added time to develop a pitching strategy as a result of Little League’s strict pitch count rules. Also, the eight-team U.S. and international brackets are no longer each divided into two four-team divisions. Double-elimination rules remain until the tournament’s final weekend. Wednesday, though, was all about getting the last few swings in the batting cage. The fields were abuzz with activity on a picture-perfect summer afternoon as the familiar “ping” of metal bats resonated. On the Mexico team, shortstop-pitcher Carlos Arellano seemed far from home on his 13th birthday. Keep in mind, while most participants are preteens, 13-year-olds are eligible so long as they were 12 on April 30. The team had a chocolate birthday cake for Arellano and teammate Ulises Rodriguez. Arellano’s favorite player? His father, who goes by the same name. He played in the minors. But the younger Arellano wants just one gift this year ... and it’s not from his father. “Win the first game tomorrow,” he said.

He allowed two runs, tossed three wild pitches and only found the strike zone on three of his 12 pitches. Three days later, though, Waterman led Bend South to victory against the same Washington squad in the semifinal round, striking out seven over three innings. It was a gritty performance by a kid who refused to let one bad outing define his regional tournament. • Broken but not busted: A media favorite, Bend South infielder and pitcher Troy Viola played the entire tournament with a broken thumb on his throwing hand. It took him a few games to adjust at the plate — he did not have a hit until Bend South’s third game — but he ended the tournament with a pair of doubles and a .294 average. On the mound, Viola earned the win in the semifinal against Washington, retiring all nine batters he faced in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. • Back in the box: After taking a ball to the head in the state tournament, Cam Davis started the Northwest Regional a little slower at the plate than he was accustomed to, going two for nine over the first three games. Taking a tip from assistant coach Stace Baker, though, Davis got more aggressive in the box and helped spark Bend South’s 14-0 rout of Wyoming in a must-win game on Aug. 10 with a solo home run in the second inning. Davis followed up his two-for-three day against Wyoming with Bend’s biggest hit of the tournament the fol-

lowing day against Washington in the semifinal round. With the score tied 3-3 in the top of the fifth inning, Davis fisted an 0-2 inside fastball to right field for what turned out to be the gamewinning RBI single. It was another great instance of a Bend South player showing resiliency after struggling early. • Solid on the bench: Bend South manager Brad Waterman, win or lose, was always a class act. He gave honest answers when his team played well and not-so-well, and stayed away from cliched responses when evaluating his team, something not all the coaches at the tournament were able to do. Waterman’s professionalism was all the more impressive considering he bunked all 10 nights of the tournament in military-style barracks with his 12 players and two assistant coaches. • It starts at home: Finally, maybe the most pleasurable part of the tournament for me was working with the parents of the Bend South All-Stars, who provided some of the best support of anyone at the Northwest Regional. My life would have been miserable trying to do some of the stories I did without parents who were gracious, patient and pleasant to deal with. You couldn’t help but be happy for the team because of the quality of the people surrounding it. Beau Eastes can be reached at 541-383-0305 or at beastes@ bendbulletin.com.

South Sister, left, and Broken Top are part of the scenery on Hosmer Lake.

Hosmer Continued from D1 After launching the drift boat Tuesday afternoon, Salaz rowed us through the southern pool and into the channel. We peered down into the water looking for areas that held fish. Certain places along the channel appeared almost tropical — clear water with blue-green tones. “Midday, you usually find fish at the edge of the weeds,” Salaz said. “The insects will cling to the weeds, especially the callibaetis. This lake is a haven for insect life. You can have everything hatching all at once.” Including kayaks. About 20 of them paddled by us all at once, in what Salaz jokingly referred to as the “kayak hatch.” A group of boats can sometimes scare the fish, but we would take our chances. Salaz anchored the boat at a spot in the channel near the weeds, toward which we would cast. He tied on chironomid and callibaetis patterns with strike indicators, hoping to get some action below the surface of the lake.

Playoff Continued from D1 Meanwhile, No. 106 Retief Goosen and reigning playoff champion Jim Furyk want to solidify their spots in the standings. They’re all a big part of what tournament director Mark Brazil has called the event’s best field in 20 years. The playoffs “are obviously playing a role in the fields of tournaments, and this is a perfect example,” Bill Haas said. “I think it’s great to see. It shows the competitive nature of all the players out here. Everybody wants to play in these playoff events, and give themselves a shot, because anything can happen.” Harrington will tee off this morning as part of one of the tournament’s more intriguing groups. He’ll be joined by two other big names who also are looking to play their way into the postseason — No. 142 Justin Leonard and No. 147 Paul Casey. The threesome has combined to win four majors. Harrington had a family vacation in the Bahamas scheduled, but when he wound up on the playoff bubble, his wife urged him to sign up for Greensboro. “If I do qualify, I’m really looking forward to the fact that I can be the underdog and come through and win it outright,” Harrington said. “I suppose that’s what the FedEx Cup was designed for.” Jason Dufner certainly could use a strong showing at the par70 Sedgefield Country Club to move forward after his late fiveshot lead evaporated at the PGA Championship last week and Keegan Bradley beat him in a three-hole playoff. “I think it’ll make me a better player,” said Dufner, who at No. 25 doesn’t have to worry about making the playoff field. “I feel like there’s been more guys who have lost leads or lost tournaments in that situation and then have had greater finishes in the future than guys that have lost leads and you never heard of again.” Two local favorites — Haas and Webb Simpson, who played Weekly Arts & Entertainment Inside

Every Friday

Hosmer can be a frustrating lake to fish, partly because anglers can often see the fish looking at their flies and then turning away. But also because it’s not terribly easy to hook an Atlantic salmon. Time and again, Salaz and I would watch our strike indicators drop below the surface and then we’d set the hook, only to come away with nothing. The fish tend to figure it, out so Salaz rowed the boat frequently to different locations throughout the channel. “This lake is so clear, they catch on real quick,” Salaz said. Finally, after a couple of hours, Salaz landed an Atlantic salmon on a scud pattern, and I got my first a short while later on a chironomid. The two-fly combination of chironomid and scud seemed to be working, and by 7 p.m., the fish started attacking the caddis. It was an eerie but beautiful sight to see fish launching themselves out of the water to feed. These were not just gentle rises; these were fish clearing the surface by three or four feet and then violently splashing back into the

lake. While that was happening, I landed about seven Atlantic salmon on the chironomid and scud patterns below the surface. Salaz could not stand it anymore and had to try to land one of those aggressive fish on a dry fly. He tied on a caddis imitation and soon found success by skating the fly along the surface to tempt the salmon. In Oregon, fishing is allowed until one hour after sunset. Darkness was approaching, so Salaz handed me his rod for a few quick casts as he rowed back to the boat ramp. Two casts yielded two fish, both on the thrilling take of a dry fly. The second fish jumped out of the water, and it chomped the fly when it landed back on the surface. I stripped it into the boat for my 11th fish of the day. We finished the outing having caught and released more than 20 fish between us, letting patience prevail long into the evening.

their college golf at nearby Wake Forest — are safely in the playoff field. Simpson enters 12th on the points list, with Haas three spots behind him. “It’s about the time of year when the FedEx Cup playoff buzz starts going, and I think we’ve got a bunch of good names here because of it,” Simpson said. “I think I’m in a position where I can make a nice run at the playoffs and try to win. This week, I don’t think I can really hurt myself. I can definitely help myself with a good week.” For Haas, no trip to Greensboro is complete without a return to his college town. The 29-year-old said he’ll make the 30-minute drive to Winston-Salem at least once to take a spin around campus “and just feel like I’m younger.” “It was the best time of my life, without question,” Haas added. “I would trade everything I’ve

done on tour to go back to college for four more years.” One player in the field can return to school in the fall after he makes some PGA Tour history. Olafur Loftsson, a rising senior at Charlotte, won the Cardinal Amateur across town to earn a sponsor’s exemption into the Wyndham. That will make him the first player from Iceland to play a tour event. “People over there are very pleased to see me have some success,” Loftsson said. “Very excited to be able to represent Iceland here and kind of show the world that we do play golf in Iceland and we can be pretty darn good.”

H U N T I NG & F ISH I NG FISHING REPORT

Good opportunity for trout on North Twin Here is the weekly fishing report for selected areas in and around Central Oregon, provided by fisheries biologists for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife:

CENTRAL ZONE ANTELOPE FLAT RESERVOIR: Boat anglers are having more success than bank anglers because the trout are seeking deeper, cooler water with the warm water temperature. BIG LAVA LAKE: Bait anglers reporting consistent catches and large fish, and fly angling has been good midday. Some anglers report they have been most successful fishing in the top three feet of water. CLEAR LAKE: Limited reports have indicated good fishing. CRANE PRAIRIE RESERVOIR: Fishing is good, with some big fish available for the patient angler. There are still many fish scattered in five to nine feet of water, although fish are slightly more concentrated in the channels. Photos by Gary Lewis / For The Bulletin

Deer and elk seasons kick off with the archery hunts that begin in late August. The controlled and general rifle seasons begin Oct. 1.

Delicacies after a deer hunt for both camp and kitchen GARY LEWIS

S

oon the leaves will turn. Camo and fluorescent orange will appear on distant ridge tops. Deer and elk seasons begin with archery hunts at the end of August. Rifle hunts begin October 1. A few deer and elk will find their way into freezers. Some folks tell me they don’t like wild meat. I have to ask, which wild meat do they not like? By my last count, I have eaten more than 90 different types of wild game — from grasshoppers to crocodile and zebra. Some wag always asks, “What does crocodile taste like? Chicken?” This always sparks wild laughter on his part. Nope, crocodile tastes like western gray squirrel. And rabbit doesn’t taste like chicken either. It tastes like rabbit. And jackrabbit tastes like fajitas. I don’t like snipe, pigeon or kangaroo. Mountain lion and bighorn sheep I have sampled, thanks to my friend Mason Payer. My favorites include red stag from New Zealand, axis deer from Hawaii, moose from British Columbia and kudu from Africa. We eat deer more than any other meat, and sometimes non-hunting guests are apprehensive if they haven’t tried the original fast food. Anyone who has ever tasted the meat of a sagebrush buck can be forgiven for the impression that deer is next to inedible. Not all deer is created equal, but even a tough old mule deer buck can be turned into great table fare. It starts in the field when the animal is on the ground. Skin the deer within the hour and let the meat cool fast. Tiffany Haugen, of Walterville, is the author of Cooking Big Game (www.tiffanyhaugen.com) and an expert at turning fish and game into meals to remember. She recommends aging the meat for three to seven days at a temperature between 35 and 45 degrees. When the meat is taken off the bone, this can be accomplished in glass dishes in a refrigerator. “We like to hang an animal in a cooler, but if that is not possible and you have to put it into the freezer, you can take it out of the freezer and age it again,” she said. “If some-

Don Lewis glasses for deer while hunting in eastern Oregon last season. one gives you an elk roast or a deer roast and you don’t know if it has been aged, put it on a plate in the fridge and leave it uncovered for three to seven days. You’re aging it under controlled conditions to give yourself a more tender, flavorful cut of meat.” Same goes for hamburger, Haugen says. “If you’re going to grind it, it still helps to age it first.” A thin crust will appear. It should be shaved off with a filet knife. Over the years, we’ve learned we like our meat best cooked on the pink side. Haugen agreed. “Most connoisseurs prefer to eat their wild meat rare.” People who don’t like wild meat are usually eating it well done and dried out. For steaks that are likely to have a stronger taste, a marinade makes the difference. “We’re more likely to use a marinade with a stronger piece of meat,” Haugen said. “Anything with a tomato or milk base will tame and tenderize it.”

My wife, Merrilee, has a favorite 12-hour marinade she uses if the meat needs no taming. Start with a third of a cup of hot water, add one teaspoon of beef boullion, three tablespoons of finely chopped onion and two tablespoons of balsamic or cider vinegar, two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of soy sauce, two chopped garlic cloves, one half teaspoon of paprika and one half teaspoon of pepper. Another marinade we like is Oregon Dan’s new Red Wine Marinade, made with a blend of red wine and soy sauce and sweetened with agave. One of our favorite ways to get dinner on fast is to fry floured backstrap fillets in butter and wrap them in bacon. The steaks should come out of the pan while they are pink in the middle. Another favorite way to eat venison is as the topping for cobb salad. Think Romaine lettuce, hard boiled egg, bacon, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes, avocado and strips of marinated steak. You’ll never look at lettuce the same way again. Our favorite chili recipe comes from a friend in Portland. Start with a crock pot and add one 16-ounce can of drained black beans and a can of kidney beans. Add a 14½-ounce can of stewed tomatoes, a 16ounce jar of Barcelona’s Red Sauce No. 5 and a half pound of browned deer, elk or antelope, a half cup of chopped onion, a clove of garlic and two teaspoons of chili powder, a teaspoon of pepper, a teaspoon of cumin and salt. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours. The last time we cooked axis deer on the barbecue, I spooned Justy’s Very Berry Jalapeno jelly onto both sides of the steak and let the berries, peppers and smoke infuse the meat with goodness. This I will do again and again. Here in Oregon, wild meat is part of our heritage. Thoughtfully prepared, it makes wholesome meals to remember, lean and free of hormone supplements. And the stories from one hunt tell way better than a hundred trips to the grocery store.

CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Flows have stabilized for the summer, resulting in better wading conditions (river flows near Prineville). The number of trout is down compared to the past couple of years, but there are still plenty of trout to be caught, with fish up to 20 inches long being reported. CULTUS LAKE: Anglers have reported improved fishing. DAVIS LAKE: Fish seem to be scattered throughout the lake and don’t seem to be keying in on any specific food source, so don’t hesitate to change flies. DESCHUTES RIVER (mouth to the Pelton Regulating Dam): Steelhead fishing has been picking up with some good reports below Macks Canyon. Anglers should expect the number of summer steelhead entering the lower Deschutes to increase during the rest of August and September. DESCHUTES RIVER (Lake Billy Chinook to Bend): Fish will concentrate in areas with cold-water input, such as springs, as summer temperatures increase. Most cold-water inputs

are located below the Lower Bridge. Anglers will find better access downstream of Lower Bridge. Rainbow trout average 10 to 16 inches, while brown trout up to 26 inches are available. EAST LAKE: Kokanee fishing has been good in the early morning hours. Some anglers report their best success has been in the top three feet of water. FALL RIVER: No recent report, but fishing should be good with mayfly and caddis imitations. HOSMER LAKE: Fishing has been good at this fly-fishing only lake. Anglers report good fishing with callibaetis, damsel nymph and traveling sedge patterns. LAKE BILLY CHINOOK: Bass fishing has been good, especially in the portions of the lake that are not as affected by the algae bloom. LAURANCE LAKE RESERVOIR: Laurance has been stocked and should be a good opportunity for both hatchery rainbow trout and native cutthroat trout. Only adipose finclipped trout may be kept, and nonfin-clipped trout should be carefully released unharmed. METOLIUS RIVER: Fishing continues to be good. Anglers should look for PMDs in the early afternoons, and mayfly spinners and caddis in the evenings. There also are golden stoneflies in the upper sections above Allingham Bridge. NORTH TWIN: Anglers have recently reported very good trout fishing. ODELL LAKE: Fishing for lake trout is good and kokanee fishing is improving with warming weather; the evening bite is typically better than the early morning bite. SOUTH TWIN LAKE: Fishing for legalsized stocked fish continues to be good. SUTTLE LAKE: Kokanee fishing has been slow. No recent reports for brown trout. WALTON LAKE: Anglers have reported fair fishing using PowerBait on the bottom. WICKIUP RESERVOIR: Anglers have been reporting success jigging and trolling for kokanee, especially toward evening.

FLY-TYING CORNER

Coch y Bondhu, tied by Ken Clarke.

By Gary Lewis For The Bulletin

It looks like most of a Renegade. It could almost be a Brown Hackle, if its collar were webbed and swept back. But this New Zealand favorite, the Coch y Bondhu, is thought to represent a beetle or blow fly. A good choice on a lazy summer day, fish it dry or fish it wet and still to suggest a snail. To make the presentation, employ a long, light leader and a floating line. Cast to feeding fish or lay the fly down gently at the edge of a weed bed or stand of tules. If the fly sinks, keep fishing it until the line tightens up with the pull of a fish. Tie this pattern on a No. 10-14 hook. Start with fine gold tinsel at the bend of the hook. Use peacock herl for the body and then wrap a brown and a white dry-fly hackle at the collar.

‘Know before you go’ Permit, map are a must on high trails By Lydia Hoffman The Bulletin

With the high trails finally open for recreation, the Forest Service would like to remind you to enjoy the wilderness responsibly. “Know before you go” is the best practice for visitors to the high trails, said Chris Sabo, U.S. Forest Service trails specialist. With a higher degree of experience and self-reliance expected of the wilderness user, the signs on these trails are minimal, said Sabo. It is important to pack the most essential of the essentials: a map. “Pack and know how to use a good trail map. That’s one of the basics. Don’t leave home without it,” said Sabo. Also of note, all wilderness trailheads have free and required self-issued permits, which trail users must have with them whether going for the day or overnight. Be sure to stop at the trailhead bulletin boards for permits and to check for important information. See Trail / E6

SPOTLIGHT

Procrastination F By David Jasper The Bulletin

or her birthday late last month, my wife and I tried to rent a place in or near Newport, but our procrastination (OK, OK, my procrastination) and exacting criteria — enough rooms for five, plus one mutt, preferably a hot tub and, by the way, we need it this weekend — made it difficult to find an affordable temporary shelter four hours away. As usual, my wife came up with a better plan. Stay home and do something we wouldn’t normally do. Her ideas: whitewater rafting on the Deschutes River, followed by relaxation at home, then take a lift ride to have dinner at Mt. Bachelor’s Pine Marten Lodge. I felt as if she’d given me the gift. All I had to do was not screw up the reservations. The two of us are maybe a little too good at talking ourselves out of supposedly fun things. Ask us about camping sometime, and you’ll get an earful about how the amount of work required for camping just isn’t worth it. All that packing, all that food to transport, all the loading and unloading, only to be repeated a day or two later, when you’re tired and dirty and your stuff is covered with moisture and dirt. Heck, if you want to relax in the outdoors, just go on a nice day trip, minus all the hassle, then come home, shower, sleep comfortably in your own bed and wake up feeling refreshed instead of stiff and sleep-deprived. See? I want to camp less than I did before I wrote that paragraph. But in this case, I thought, she’s on to something, not just rationalizing away a trip. Because unless you own a raft or have company visiting town, when do you get around to doing these activities that are hiding in plain sight?

Mom turns daughter’s wedding into a battle with ex-husband Dear Abby: I’m in a real pickle. My ex-wife, “Gloria,” and I have been divorced eight years, but have managed to remain civil to each other. Last year, my daughter had a big birthday party to which I wanted to bring a date. Gloria decided that she would not attend because it would be “hurtful” to see me with another woman. After my daughter called me in tears, I canceled my date and went to the party alone. Now my daughter is about to be married and I want to bring a date to the ceremony. Again, Gloria has announced that she will forgo the pleasure of seeing our daughter get married “so I can have my way and prove to the world I’m able to get a date.” My daughter is caught in the middle and wants us both there. I foresee a host of problems in the future if Gloria’s behavior continues. My girlfriend is understanding, but I wish I could include her in family activities, especially one-of-a kind events like weddings. Your thoughts, Abby? — Arizona Dad in Conflict Dear Arizona Dad: Clearly you have gotten on with your life and Gloria hasn’t. Eight years is a long time, and by now your ex should have adjusted to the fact that you have separate lives. I, too, foresee a host of problems in the future if you and your daughter continue to succumb to her emotional blackmail. One solution would be for Gloria to bring a companion of her own to the wedding. Another would be for you to sit with your ex during the ceremony and with your girlfriend at the reception. But for Gloria to say that you only want your girlfriend with you at family events “so you can show the world you can get a date” is hostile. If you don’t assert yourself and end your ex’s game-playing, what will wind up happening is you having to alternate celebrating milestone events in your daughter’s and eventual grandchildren’s lives. Dear Abby: I like to be tan. Sometimes I tan outside, but of-

DEAR ABBY ten that takes too long and can be damaging to the skin, so I opt for self-tanning lotion. But some people ask me if I have put on “fake-n-bake”! I feel this is rude. I don’t want to have to explain my desire for tan legs. I want people to believe the color is real. They do look that way, but because others are pale in comparison, I get asked about it. How do I reply without giving myself away? — Bronzed Babe in the West Dear Bronzed Babe: If people are asking you about the tan on your legs, face it, it doesn’t look real. Your problem may be that you are using the wrong product. Or, if you’re using it only on your legs, that could be what’s made it obvious to others. A possible solution would be to consult someone who works in a spraytanning salon. Dear Abby: My friend, “Maggie,” had her flight home canceled and asked me if she could stay at my place overnight. I’m in a longdistance relationship and I felt my girlfriend of seven years would be uncomfortable with the arrangement. I asked Maggie to respect that and offered to book a hotel room for her instead. She was offended and ended our friendship. Do you think I was wrong? — Unfriended in Virginia Dear Unfriended: No, I think you were protecting what was important to you — your girlfriend’s feelings. And I also think you made the right choice.

TV role as Prince Charles? Garber was all ears By Luaine Lee McClatchy-Tribune News Service

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Many actors like the profession because they can hide behind a character. Not Victor Garber. Acting for him is a way of revealing himself. “The experiences I’ve had in my life are going to inform how I play this role that’s coming up,” he said. “The heartbreak, the sadness, the joy, the good fortune, the controversy, whatever it is — that’s going to inform what I do because that’s in me. That’s part of me, and my goal in any role is to reveal myself through that character. That’s essentially what I think I do,” he said. The man who’s best known as the CIA dad in “Alias” and the desolate ship’s architect in “Titanic” is trying on a new crown. This time he’s playing a prince — Prince Charles in the Hallmark Channel’s “William & Catherine: a Royal Romance,” premiering Aug. 27. Though there’s little resemblance between Garber and the prince, he jokes that they share the ears. While the role was challenging, getting it wasn’t. He ran into executive producer Linda Yellen at a coffee shop in New York and she said, “I’ve just been thinking about you, and I have a part....” It hasn’t always been that easy for Garber, 62. He worked for years before he actually made a living from acting. But there was nothing else he wanted to do. “Acting’s the only thing I CAN do,” he laughed. “I really can’t do anything else. I’ve always loved to entertain and make people laugh and tell stories — that’s what an actor does. From childhood there was never any question that was what I was going to do, ever. When I was very young I was introduced to children’s theater group in

Victor Garber is known for many roles, including the CIA father in “Alias,” but his latest role puts him as royalty as Prince Charles in the Hallmark Channel’s “William & Catherine: a Royal Romance” on Hallmark Channel. Hallmark Channel via McClatchy-Tribune News Service

‘William & Catherine: a Royal Romance’ When: 9 p.m. Aug. 27 Where: Hallmark Channel

London, Ontario, where I’m from, and it was in the local amateur theater. I went there on Saturday mornings, and the minute I walked up those stairs, I knew that’s where I belonged and that’s what I always wanted to do.” He was 16 when he left home and school and headed for Toronto to pursue this unrequited love. “I stayed with a woman I’d taken a theater course with in the summer. She rented me a room and my father drove me

there and gave me some money to live on and I worked washing dishes, I sang, played guitar and passed the hat.” He also worked for an all-night transport company, a task he calls “a mindless, horrible job.” He managed to snag some local productions in Toronto. “I would make a few hundred dollars here and there but I didn’t really start making money till I got to New York and hit Broadway. ‘Deathtrap’ was my first big Broadway show,” said Garber. In spite of his pedigree, Garber isn’t sure when his work is improving. “Every time I get a job, I work really hard and sometimes it feels easier than other times. I think it’s really more confidence. I feel I’m getting better if I have more confidence. If it feels right

to me, then I feel I’m doing the right thing. I don’t really think I’m better at this than I was at that — I just keep working hard, as hard as I can. And I keep getting hired so I guess I’m doing the right thing.” The second of three children, Garber lost both his parents to Alzheimer’s disease. His father died 10 years ago, his mom, six years ago. “That was a personal journey I don’t wish on anyone,” he sighed. “Those were events that changed my life.” Pausing, he said, “For me, it’s always been about the options that are open to me and I’m very choosy about what I do. I’m picky. Sometimes I have to do a job because I need some money and I’ve done that and I’m not ashamed of that, but generally I’ve also needed money and not done a job because I just couldn’t do it — it’s always about the material for me. It’s always about the writing and the people involved in the project.” While many actors start out shy, he said, “I was insecure and not confident, but not shy. I was a performer from very young. I liked to get up and do things. It has developed over the years. I’m confident to a degree, but I still have massive insecurities and doubts and all that, but that’s just the human condition.”

HBO doc to shed light on puppy mills Man’s best friend is on the losing end of the relationship, as the documentary “Madonna of the Mills” will prove when it airs on HBO2 Aug. 24. The film documents the horrendous conditions that dogs endure at puppy mills, where the object is money and the welfare of the canines doesn’t count. Nearly 99 percent of the puppies sold in U.S. pet stores come from puppy mills, and almost all of them have parasites. Pet stores around the country sell dogs riddled with infections and ailments because their parents are housed in inhumane facilities, relentlessly bred and then callously discarded. Laura (no last name) is the crusader bent on stopping these practices as she travels through rural Pennsylvania in search of such atrocities.

Simon Cowell to redefine ‘X-Factor’ Sunny Simon Cowell will be bringing his British-born “The X-Factor” to Fox come Sept. 21. We all remember his caustic challenges on “American Idol,” but Cowell says that the “The X-Factor” is going to be something completely different. “I wouldn’t have made the show unless I thought it was go-

ing to be different.... We’re going to try and change the rules. We’re going to try and find a completely different kind of contestant. Our job as judges is to find people who’ve got star quality, turn them into stars. And I’ve got a panel who can do that. For me, because I’ve worked on ‘Idol’ and ‘The X-Factor’ for seven years, the shows were completely different, even though they were both talent competitions.”

Mike Judge revives ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ Cartoon genius Mike Judge is rebooting his teenage cavemen, “Beavis and Butt-Head,” this fall on MTV in all-new episodes. Now that reality shows have outdone the puerile antics of the teen duo, it’s hard to see how Judge can top them. The couch potatoes will only share a nodding acquaintance with modern technology like iPhones and Twitter. “There’s an episode where they work tech support. That came out pretty good, I think,” Judge said. “It’s based on a lot of my phone calls with tech support people and, you know, stuff like that.... They see ‘Twilight,’ and there are, like, all these girls are into vampires and vampires are sexy. They try to become undead. You know, stuff like that that’s kind of a little bit topical.” — From wire reports

See real MacGyvers in action on ‘JUNKies’ By Diane Werts Newsday

Reason to watch: A Long Island junkyard becomes a laboratory for “enginerds” inventing crazy somethings out of nothing. What it’s about: If you’ve ever wanted to “get that feeling of deviance out,” then “JUNKies” may be the show for you. That’s what metal artist Doyle Huge promises in the show’s premiere, when he walks into Freeport Auto Parts and Wrecking to ask junkyard owner Jimmy Ruocco for components to build an “interactive fire sculpture.” It involves flamethrowers and leaf blowers, for a “5 g centrifuge with a homemade pulse jet rocket on it.” You know, “like a jet engine on a stick.” Which is why this show is on Science, not any of myriad other channels hosting unscripted guyaimed mayhem. There’s a level of expertise involved. It’s also from the creators of Science’s existing Saturday hit “Oddities,” exploring strange stuff in a Lower East Side secondhand shop. In Freeport, Jimmy’s salvage crew delivers a down-home dose of practicality, while wannabe MacGyvers like Doyle and junk peddler Hale Storm provide outthere inspiration. “I don’t know if these guys are geniuses, engineers or lunatics,” says yard mechanic Billy Cottle. “I’m startin’ to lean toward lunacy.”

‘JUNKies’ When: 10 tonight Where: Science

Needed components are scouted and found, sometimes from other stops, like Jimmy Javino’s Heavy Metal parts in Oceanside, so brainiacs like Doyle can build his revolving “regurgitator.” Future shows promise a surf cycle, a coffin car and other spareparts wonders. My say: “JUNKies” follows a familiar formula, but adds a buoyant burst of adrenaline when the guys spontaneously react to the inventions and their makers. (Billy goes bonkers riding Doyle’s centrifuge after losing a bet.) And though locals won’t be impressed, mainlanders will likely get a bonus kick just hearing the guys’ “exotic” Lawn Guyland accents. They make for a fun hour paired with 10:30 p.m.’s “real MacGyver” series “Stuck With Hackett,” where a survivalist finds primitive ways to build a working locomotive from wreckage. Bottom line: Gotta love a show that assumes the viewer has the smarts to know what a Tesla coil is. (Or at least trusts you to look it up.)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011: This year, many people feel very positively about you, and you feel the same way about them. With the good vibes flowing, people will become more their authentic selves. As a result, you often are surprised by others’ reactions. Be careful about sitting on anger, as it could come out in strange ways. Try to clear your mind and center yourself. If you are single, you could meet someone quite spectacular this year. If you are attached, the two of you could see a new addition to your household, or perhaps go on a second honeymoon. ARIES 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) HHHHH You have abundant energy. Remain direct and optimistic. A family member, perhaps even the cat, could be out of sorts. Follow a strong feeling concerning funds. Tonight: Put your feet up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Your instincts need to guide you with an investment. You are unusually lucky, but that doesn’t mean a gamble is foolproof. Your anger could come out at any moment. Try to cool the flames. Tonight: Go for quiet and solitude. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Zero in on what is important to you. Be careful; follow your instincts with an investment or money matter. Don’t lose your patience, as you could overspend. Know when enough is enough. Do your best to

discharge your anger and frustration. Tonight: Add to your wardrobe. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Be aware of the needs and requests of others. A fun exchange lightens you up. People do their best to show their more positive side. A meeting allows you to gain a perspective. Tonight: In the limelight. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH You tend to be adventurous anyway, but those instincts are emphasized when dealing with news and others. For some people, you can detach and gain a perspective. For others, you simply have a need to break a pattern. Tonight: Decide to go with a different idea. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH A partner or several close associates demand your time and attention. You will want the same as you deal with different aspects of your day. You will definitely know who is on your side and who is not. Feelings on the emotional plane clear up. Tonight: Dinner for two. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Others might seem to be abrupt, as they have so many ideas and want to do certain projects their way. In the long run, you might be surprised by how well letting others do what they want works for you. Tonight: Start planning your weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Though someone might want to socialize, even at work, you want to complete certain tasks before you entertain that thought. A boss or contemporary admires your efficiency. Tonight: Get some much-needed zzz’s. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

HHHH You might not be aware of it, but you have the solution needed to clear an obstacle. How you come up with it might be surprising. Tap into your imagination in order to find solutions. A brainstorming session can only help. Your sweetie shares some strong feelings. Tonight: Start the weekend early. Romp away. CAPRICORN (Dec 22-. Jan 19) HHHH Right now you do your best work in solitude. Clear out work. If possible, make your work environment more like your home. You will be more productive. A partner shares interesting feedback. Listen and respond. Tonight: Make it easy, at home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb 18) HHHHH Keep conversations moving. Refuse to get stuck on any one point. You will flourish as long as you don’t get hung up on a triggering situation. Use your high energy to clear out a personal issue. Express your caring, not only in your unique style, but also in way that someone can hear you. Tonight: Visit with friends. PISCES (Feb 19-March 20) HHHH Listen to what is being said with care. Honor another person’s opinion, but don’t lose faith in yours. Both can exist simultaneously, even if it seems to be black-and-white. There is a similarity in the issue. Tonight: First treat yourself well. Then treat another person well.

Outing Continued from E1 And in the end, we would spend less that we would have on gas, renting a place, meals and activities at the coast. So I went online, found the number for Sun Country Tours, whose office off of Century Drive I’d been driving by for years, and called to make a reservation (which needs to be done at least 24 hours in advance, for anyone else prone to procrastination). Trips are offered anywhere from six to 12 times a day, depending on demand. The reservationist asked me where we would be staying. Our conversation went something like this: “Where are we staying?” I asked. “Yes, where will we be picking you up?” “Uh, we’re from Bend. I figured we’d just drive to your office,” I said. She then explained that people can get picked up at area resorts for Sun Country trips. The company also offers an all-day trip on the Lower Deschutes near Maupin, as well as trips to the Umpqua and McKenzie rivers. But the two-hour Big Eddy Thriller is by far the most popular of its trips, says manager John Cramp. When we showed up for our Saturday morning trip, there was a bit of waiting around with the other tourists, the smell of sunscreen in the air. Eventually we all climbed on a bus, which took us to Aspen Day Use Area, where rafts and guides were already waiting for us by the time we’d walked to the river’s edge. We were given paddles and life jackets — a guide walking by me cinched mine up nice and tight, but when she wasn’t looking I loosened it a little in order to inhale life-giving air — and then the guides divided us into groups, generally seven adults plus the guide, more if there were kids going in the raft. They next had us climb into our respective boats. Our party of five joined a family of four, plus our guide, Aaron Chapman, who was full of stock jokes. He

Trail Continued from E1 In the high country, Broken Top still has patchy snow on the trails. Forest Road 370 is still blocked by snow just two miles up from Todd Lake, and the gates are closed to motorized vehicles. The current best estimate for those gates to open is around Labor Day. Hikers, bikers and equestrians may use the road, but there are plenty of snowdrifts and they may lose the road. South Sister still has sections of snow on the route to the summit, and there is patchy snow around Moraine and Green lakes. Green Lakes Trail is navigable. The Green Lakes Loop to Todd lake is likely to have patchy snow. Todd Lake Trail is clear of fallen trees.

teased the kids about alligators and a ferocious rapid called the Child Grinder. He then joked that they had to stop calling it that, and the lawyers had told them they can’t talk about it anymore “since the incident.” My younger daughters looked worried, but I thought he was a laugh riot. Chapman wasn’t all jokes, though. He gave us instructions on paddling forward and backward. For some reason, though, he selected me as lead paddler, meaning that when I paddled, everyone had to match me stroke for stroke. I didn’t exactly get drunk with power, though. We did some test paddling, and eventually we all fell into a more or less coordinated enough effort. The woman behind me hit me with her paddle only once or twice; I made a mental note to stay in the boat at all costs. Chapman explained that if we did happen to fall in, we could float safely downstream on our backs, feet first in order to push away from lava rocks. Do people fall out? I asked Cramp. “Statistically, no. People fall out, and most people, if they do, they fall in for a short dip, but it’s definitely the exception rather than the norm. I can’t even give you a percent, because it’s pretty darn small.” The first ripples one hits are Class 1 and 2 rapids. That’s relatively small, based on a scale of 1 to 6, 6 being the most difficult,

according to www.suncountry tours.com. My eldest daughter had made the Big Eddy run a few times with the Boys & Girls Club of Central Oregon, so she was game when Chapman asked who wanted to “ride the bull” — which involves sitting on the raft’s front and dangling your feet off the front while holding ropes as it goes through some relatively tame whitewater. She was also game to “punch the dog,” which basically entails holding on for dear life, kneeling at the front of the raft, as it goes through the 90-second, third-ofa-mile that is Big Eddy’s Class 3 rapids. Whoever named these river features had a great gift for nomenclature: Kenmore (as in washing machine), Notch, Souse Hole, Three Stooges, Old Stogie. One thing I hadn’t known prior to rafting is that one perches on the outer part of the boat to paddle through rapids, which to me seemed a lot like sitting on a plane’s wing while flying. I had opted to wear quick-drying running shorts on the trip, and once they got wet — you will get wet on this paddle, by the way — I was sliding all over the raft. Our newly acquired paddling skills would come in handy in the relative calm downstream. After surviving the whitewater, we played Wheel of Misfortune, which entailed someone balancing on the front of the boat while I and my paddling minions pad-

damage to fragile areas. The impact left by tromping on the trail edges is much more severe because of the late snowpack. Wilderness trails are progressing with trail clearing and most of them are free of blowdown and snow. Some holdouts are sections of the Pacific Crest Trail. There is substantial snow around the Diamond Peak area blocking the PCT. Hikers heading toward Three Fingered Jack on the PCT should also expect snow. There were reports last week of 10-foot snowdrifts around the Jeff Park area of Mount Jefferson. In the Three Sisters Wilderness there may be substantial snow above 6,500 feet. Canyon Creek Meadow is now mostly snow-free, though the upper glacier view trail off the loop trail has some snow. Tam MacArthur Rim Trail still has some snow at the top, but is being cleared of blowdown. Three Creek Lake

area is mostly clear. For cyclists, Flagline Trail officially opened Aug. 15, but access from the high end (Todd Lake and Dutchman Flat) is blocked by snow. In the Crescent Ranger District, there is some substantial blowdown around the Davis Lake area on the Metolius Windigo trail. Crews clearing trails have run into patchy snow on Windy Lakes Trail. This Saturday, the Where’s Waldo endurance run is occurring around the Maiden Peak area east of Waldo Lake. Newberry Crater trails are all ready to go and in great shape, Sabo said. Low-elevation trails are in good condition, though a bit dusty, but most trails (high and low elevation) are cleared of fallen trees. Go prepared for high-season crowds.

dled forward on one side, backward on the other, in order to spin the boat and make the balancer fall from his or her perch. Alas, no one fell into the water during the game, but not for lack of trying. Still, we got to jump in and swim along the river, prior to takeout at Lava Island Falls. All told, the trip took about two hours, one and a quarter of it on the river. An unusual way to spend my wife’s birthday, and a memorable one. She later said that, for her, the

best part of the paddle was hearing our two youngest daughters say, “It was scary but fun.” David Jasper can be reached at 541-383-0349 or djasper@bendbulletin.com.

ELECTIVE INDUCTIONS

FITNESS

Last weeks of pregnancy really matter

Long, short of avoiding running injuries

By Markian Hawryluk The Bulletin

By Anne Aurand

In recent years, pregnant women and their doctors have become increasingly willing to induce labor and schedule cesarean sections earlier in the pregnancy even when there is no medical reason to do so. But now many hospitals are changing their policies to put a stop to the practice. March of Dimes of OrM E D I C I N E egon recently announced that 17 hospitals, primarily in the Portland area, have agreed to adopt a “hard stop” on any requests to induce labor prior to 39 weeks of pregnancy unless the doctor can show a medical need. The group is now planning to seek similar pledges from the remainder of Oregon’s 53 hospitals and has launched a patient-focused campaign seeking to educate women on the risks of early induction. See Inductions / F2

The Bulletin

In the ongoing saga about which is better for runners — longer, slower distances or shorter, faster running — results from a new study suggest that brief, intense runs might be a useful training approach to reach peak aerobic conditioning while reducing the risk of overuse injuries. The small study, published in a recent issue of The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, showed that shorter, faster runs didn’t cause the fatiguerelated changes to running form and natural shock-absorption that longer training runs did. The results came as a surprise to researchers, who had seen studies suggesting the opposite. It’s hard to come to truly valid scientific conclusions on bestpractice training questions. Disparate results among studies could be attributed to different protocols for fatigue and data collection. Some studies that examined whether there are benefits to speed work have used treadmills; others watched outdoor runners. However, small studies have suggested high-intensity training can improve speed and performance in competitive runners. This new study “raises the intriguing possibility that brief, high-intensity training runs might provide many of the benefits of training with a lower risk of overuse injuries,” its authors wrote. The authors also concluded that more research is needed. See Run / F6

Market

power Evidence suggests effects of hospital consolidation may be surprising By Betsy Q. Cliff The Bulletin

Jason Moyer, 38, trains on the Deschutes River Trail near Dillon Falls. A competitive longdistance runner, Moyer had injured his knee and quit running for a year. When he restarted, he substituted shorter, hightempo runs for some longerdistance runs, and he no longer logs 100-mile weeks.

im Diegel, CEO of St. Charles Health System, says he has something most of his peers would kill for: a 97 percent market share. The health system, which comprises hospitals in Bend, Redmond and Prineville, holds a near-monopoly on inpatient health care in Central Oregon. Now the health system, like others around the nation and in this area, is expanding. St. Charles last year bought a primary care practice in Redmond and is currently setting up a practice in Bend. It has talked about employing physicians from other outpatient specialties as well. Bend Memorial Clinic, another powerhouse in regional medical care, is looking into the

same thing. Earlier this year it agreed to form an accountable care organization with four specialty practices; the new organization means the groups will function sometimes like a single network. The expansions of both groups, according to each, is being done in the service of patient care. With larger organizations, both say, patients will have access to greater medical technology, seamless medical records and an array of physicians. Evidence suggests that’s likely true. The groups also say that through economies of scale, they’ll be able to lower health care costs. Here, the evidence is more equivocal. Some health economists have begun to raise questions about how the consolidation of health care providers into bigger and more concentrated organizations will affect health care prices.

For dieters, keeping it off can be tricky By Anne Aurand The Bulletin

Because dieters have a notoriously dismal rate of maintaining their weight loss, Christopher Sciamanna, a professor of medicine and public health sciences at the Penn N U T R I T I O N State College of Medicine, and a group of researchers sought to boost public knowledge about how to maintain one’s weight loss. Things that work best for losing weight include: participation in a weight-loss program; researching weight loss, nutrition or exercise; eating healthy snacks; limiting sugar; planning meals ahead of time; avoiding meal skipping (such as breakfast); varying exercise choices; choosing enjoyable exercise and thinking about being thinner.

M Inductions Continued from F1 “(The campaign) encourages women to allow labor to begin on its own if their pregnancy is healthy,” said Joanne Rogovoy, state director of program services and public affairs for the Oregon chapter of the March of Dimes, “and seeks to dispel the myth that it’s completely safe to schedule a delivery before 39 weeks of pregnancy without a medical need.” But both Rogovoy and Oregon state health officials said they were unsure of the magnitude of the problem. Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland are now working on ways to track the number of early elective inductions in the state and to see whether the hospital policies will have a significant impact. Rogovoy said a similar initiative implemented by Intermountain Healthcare in Utah in 2001 reduced the number of early elective inductions from 28 percent of births to 10 percent within six months, and to less than 3 percent after six years. Representatives of the St. Charles hospitals in Bend and Redmond as well as Mountain View Hospital in Madras, said they have not yet been contacted by March of Dimes, but have had similar policies in place for years. Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville no longer delivers babies. Medical indications for early inductions could include high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, advanced maternal age or expecting multiples, said Mara Kerr, director of mother and child health for the St. Charles Health System. But doctors often get requests to induce for other reasons. Some women want to schedule delivery at time when a family member can come to help out. Others may want to ensure their doctor will be available to deliver the baby. “I think the maternal discomforts of pregnancy, that’s probably the leading cause,” Kerr said. “We have some people who are miserably uncomfortable. ‘OK, get this baby out or something is going to happen here.’” Kerr said physicians must schedule inductions with the birthing center and must provide a medical reason to do so if the delivery will occur before the 39-week mark. As of last week, the family birthing center at St. Charles Bend had delivered 987 babies in 2011, and only 19 of those were induced. But officials did not have a break-out of how many of those induced births occurred before 39 weeks nor how many were done without a medical indication. In Madras, hospital officials said they have not done any elective inductions before 39 weeks without a medical indication for several years. “You’re tempting fate at that point,” said Dr. Gary Plant, a family physician who delivers babies at Mountain View. “There’s statistical evidence that’s not a good idea.”

New data That evidence has only emerged in the past decade, said Dr. Aaron Caughey, chair of OHSU’s department of obstetrics and gynecology. It was a landmark study published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. Alan Tita from the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2009 that really brought the issue to the forefront, he said. That study looked at women who had elective repeat cesarean sections, comparing the percentage of babies that experienced complications with the gestation time at delivery. Tita and his colleagues found that nearly 36 percent of elective repeat cesareans were done prior to 39 weeks of pregnancy, and that babies born at 37 weeks didn’t do as well as babies born at 38 weeks, and they didn’t do as well as babies born at 39 weeks. The study showed that 15 percent of babies delivered at 37 weeks experience complications, compared with 11 percent of those delivered at 38 weeks and 8 percent at 39 weeks. A study published earlier this year from researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that early elective inductions posed risks to both the mother and the child.

Kim Kardashian’s new reality: psoriasis In a recent episode of her reality television show, Kim Kardashian visited a doctor for a skin rash and was diagnosed with psoriasis. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, the condition is a chronic genetic disease of the immune system affecting more then 7.5 million Americans. It occurs when the immune system causes the growth cycle of skin cells to speed up. There are five types of psoriasis, but nearly 80 percent of cases manifest in red, scaly patches that itch and bleed. It occurs most often during the ages of 15 and 35 but can appear at any time. The exact cause is unknown.

While there is no cure for the condition, a variety of treatments range from topical creams to oral or injected medications. Patients with psoriasis are also at higher risk of other serious health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and depression. Up to 30 percent of patients will develop psoriatic arthritis, a painful swelling of the joints. Stress is known to trigger psoriasis and doctors often advise patients to make lifestyle changes to reduce their stress. Certain medications as well as cuts or scrapes to the skin can trigger symptoms as well. — Markian Hawryluk, The Bulletin

tive vaginal delivery prior to 39 weeks had a 40 percent higher risk of needing to be admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit compared with those who delivered spontaneously, and those delivered via elective cesarean prior to 39 weeks had more than twice the risk. Babies born prior to 39 weeks through a nonelective cesarean also had twice the risk of a NICU admission. Meanwhile, the study found that women who underwent elective inductions before 39 weeks also faced a higher likelihood of needing a cesarean delivery and experienced more bleeding, even after accounting for the increased rate of C-sections. For every 100 women who underwent elective inductions, the women spent an additional 88 days in the hospital compared with women who went into labor spontaneously. “As a working professional and a mother, I know how tempting it can be to schedule a delivery to try to get your life in order, but there’s a reason that babies stay in the womb for the full term,” said Dr. Loralei Thornburg, one of the co-authors of the study and a specialist in maternal and fetal medicine. “Why put you and your newborn at risk if you don’t have to?”

A guestimation Even though doctors define a full-term pregnancy as anything between 37 weeks and zero days to 41 weeks and six days, estimating how far along a woman is still isn’t an exact science. Due dates are calculated at 40 weeks past the woman’s last menstrual cycle, with most women carrying babies about 38 weeks past the point of conception. Unless the date of conception can be determined exactly, say through a diary or the date of in vitro fertilization, the lag between the last menstruation and conception could lead to a miscalculation. “With that error, you might be off by a few days or as much as a few weeks,” Caughey said. “So why do we call it a term pregnancy at 37 weeks? Well part of it was there were a lot of people delivering at 37 weeks decades ago. Were some of those people further along? Well, yes, they might have been.” While science has provided better ways to estimate the age of the fetus, including measuring the size of the head or the abdomen in an ultrasound, those measures are much more accurate when an ultrasound is done earlier in the pregnancy. At nine weeks, ultrasound measurement can pinpoint the week of gestation within five days. By the 12 to 14 week mark, it could be off by eight to 12 days, Caughey said. “We think early ultrasound at your first visit with your doctors is a really useful thing to get,” he said. “That’s been the standard of care in Europe, for example, for a long time. In this country, it means another charge, so it’s been slow to be adopted.” But with due dates off by as much as two weeks, a woman who believes she’s inducing at 37 or 38 weeks and very close to full term, might actually be delivering a baby at 35 or 36 weeks. And that child might not be fully developed at that point. In the final weeks of gestation, the child’s lungs must still complete their development. The air sacs in the lungs, known as al-

veoli, must fully develop, becoming thin enough to allow oxygen to pass through easily. And the child must have enough of a molecule known as surfactant, which reduces the surface tension of those sacs to allow them to expand more easily. With every additional week of pregnancy, both those factors improve, and the risk of the child having respiratory distress after birth shrinks, Caughey said. Babies born after 39 weeks also have better success with breast-feeding. Neonatal specialists have made great strides in improving care for babies born before 39 weeks, and can save babies born as early as 24 or 25 weeks. But Caughey said that success may have numbed doctors to the very real risks that babies face when born just a week or two early. “Over the last 10 years, there’s more and more data that suggest that the probability of some kind of learning disability or behavioral disorder is quite high, and so even if they will survive, (developing) just like a 39-week fully normal kid is not as common,” he said. “I think that data has started to make us a little bit more suspicious.”

Making exceptions While many institutions have now implemented a hard stop on elective inductions before 39 weeks, the rate may never fall to zero as doctors and hospitals still struggle with certain exceptions. Some will induce a women earlier if her husband is in the military and being deployed overseas. Others may allow a scheduled induction for a woman who lives in a remote area of the state, hours away from a major hospital. An alternative may be to ask the woman to stay closer to a major hospital with family or friends, or in a hotel if she can afford it. Caughey said in some cases, hospitals have admitted a woman from a remote area who has no other options in the final week or two of pregnancy, but at great cost to the health care system. Plant said the Madras hospital does not make those exceptions even for women coming from remote areas, but they may ask a woman to stay closer to the hospital rather than returning to Antelope or Maupin for the final weeks of her pregnancy. “My job as a doctor is to make sure that mom and baby are both healthy, and statistically, the baby has the best chance of being healthy after 39 weeks,” he said. “It’s a similar reason why we induce after 41 weeks, because the risks to mom and baby go up after 41 weeks. There’s that window of time when it’s time to have the baby.” Markian Hawryluk can be reached at 541-617-7814 or mhawryluk@bendbulletin. com.

Bargain CT scans aimed at smokers By Phil Galewitz

A landmark study by the National Cancer Institute has prompted hospitals to start offering discounted CT scans for smokers.

Kaiser Health News

WASHINGTON — Trumpeting a landmark study released recently, hospitals around the U.S. have started offering deeply discounted CT scans for smokers who are worried about lung cancer. But some experts question whether the strategy is a marketing ploy that could bring more harm than good. St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pa., put out a single-page flier with a headline that a “10second scan could be life-saving” and a clip-out coupon for a $49 procedure. University Hospitals in Cleveland has a slick video on its website promoting its $99 scan, noting that some experts say this could be the “new hope needed to help save lives.” The hospitals — including the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center in Denver, Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Rhode Island Hospital in Providence and Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in California — say they’re responding to the study by the National Cancer Institute. It found that annual low-dose CT — or computerized tomography — screening of asymptomatic current or former smokers could cut the death rate from lung cancer by 20 percent by identifying the disease earlier than Xrays can.

Hospitals have marked down the CT scan — which can cost as much as $1,000 — to help cashpaying customers. Medicare and private insurers don’t cover the test. Neither the American Cancer Society nor the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent panel of medical experts that examines the effectiveness of preventive tests, has recommended the screening, though both groups are studying the issue. “You have to ask the question whose interests are being served here,” Dr. H. Gilbert Welch, who studies cancer screening, said of hospitals’ sales pitches. “Screen-

ing tests are a great way to recruit new patients that produce revenues with follow-up biopsies and procedures.” Welch and other experts worry that hospitals that are pushing the low-cost CT scans will focus on promoting the benefits of the lung cancer study to patients rather than warn about its costs and complications.

VITAL STATS

Continued from F1 Things that work best for maintaining weight include: eating plenty of low-fat protein; following a consistent exercise routine; rewarding oneself for sticking to a diet or exercise plan and regular reminders about why weight maintenance is necessary. “No one announces to a dieter, ‘You’re moving into the weight-maintenance stage. You’ll have to do things differently,’” said Sciamanna, the study’s lead author. During the weight-loss phase, the focus is on limiting calories. During a maintenance phase, one must limit calories but also meet nutritional needs: “Eating plenty of lowfat sources of protein is hypothesized to be one of those behaviors,” the study said. “I think a lot of people don’t realize this,” said Annie Williamson, a registered dietitian at Bend Memorial Clinic. “It’s an interesting thing to bring up, with the obesity epidemic.” But it wasn’t new information to Williamson, who has watched all this play out in her patients. She said 20 percent of people who lose weight can’t maintain that loss, so researching how to succeed in maintaining weight loss will benefit society. “They are totally different things. One of the biggest thing with weight maintenance, it’s not very reinforcing. When you’re losing weight, you see it on the scale, and you stay motivated,” she said. Without that regular incentive, “it’s harder for a lot of people to stay involved.” That’s why habits such as rewarding good behavior or reminders about one’s purpose are helpful in the maintenance phase, according to the study.

Health advocacy group’s ‘Xtreme’ awards carry some weight A nonprofit health advocacy group has published a list of “Xtreme Eating Awards” bashing chain restaurant menu items that are stuffed with excessive calories. To put these numbers in context, consider that a typical eater should consume about 2,000 calories, 20 grams of saturated fat, and 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day. The Center for Science in the Public Interest’s “Nutrition Action Healthletter” awards include:

Weight loss and weight maintenance The practices that help people lose weight and the practices that help them keep it off don’t overlap much, according to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine this month. Things that work best Things that work best for losing weight for maintaining weight • Eating plenty of low-fat protein • Participation in a weight loss program • Following a consistent exercise • Researching routine weight loss, • Rewarding nutrition or oneself for exercise sticking to a • Eating healthy diet or snacks exercise plan • Limiting sugar • Regular • Planning meals ahead of time reminders about • Avoiding meal skipping, such why weight as breakfast maintenance • Varying exercise choices is necessary • Choosing enjoyable exercise and thinking about being thinner Source: American Journal of Preventive Medicine

“Some people are black and white. They’ll diet strictly, eating nothing they’re not meant to eat, or they won’t be careful at all. Maintenance requires something in between,” said Lawrence Cheskin, director of the Weight Management Center at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who was not involved with the study. “This research could have implications for what we should emphasize when we are trying to help people lose versus maintain their weight.” One consistent, weight-loss maintenance trick is to decrease one’s food variety, according to the authors of the study. That is the theme of a separate, recent, small-scale study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. It suggested that monotony — repeatedly presenting the same food — reduces its appeal and consumption. It’s called “habituation,” a form of learning in which repeated exposure to something decreases one’s response to it. In this study, macaroni and cheese was presented either daily or weekly for

Organic farms harbor less antibiotic-resistant bacteria By Meredith Cohn The Baltimore Sun

Poultry farms that use organic methods that don’t involve antibiotics have significantly lower levels of drug-resistant bacteria that can potentially spread to human, according to a new study led by the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have become a problem for health care providers whose choices become limited in treating infection in humans, but there hasn’t been enough data on the sources. So, researchers say the findings, published Aug. 10

online in Environmental Health Perspectives, are important. Antibiotic use has been commonplace for decades on large farms in aiding production of meat. But that has drawn the ire of environmentalists and some health advocates. The study may provide fuel to the argument. It suggests restricting antibiotic use from large-scare poultry farms can reduce resistance for some bacteria quickly. “We initially hypothesized that we would see some differences in on-farm levels of antibioticresistant enterococci when poul-

try farms transitioned to organic practices,” said Dr. Amy Sapkota, an assistant professor with the Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health in the School of Public Health. “But we were surprised to see that the differences were so significant across several different classes of antibiotics even in the very first flock that was produced after the transition to organic standards. It is very encouraging.” The researchers from Maryland, Pennsylvania State University and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health tested for the common

five weeks. With 16 obese and 16 non-obese women between ages 20 and 50, the study found that daily offerings of the same meal resulted in faster habituation and less consumption than weekly presentation of the same food. “We’ve known for years that foods … can trigger release of various brain chemicals, some of which are also involved in what happens with drug addiction and withdrawal. And, as can happen with substance abusers, tolerance or habituation can occur, meaning that repeated use — in this case exposure to a food — is sometimes accompanied by a lack of response, in this case, dis-

“No one announces to a dieter, ‘You’re moving into the weightmaintenance stage. You’ll have to do things differently.’” — Christopher Sciamanna, professor of medicine and public health sciences at the Penn State College of Medicine interest in the food,” said American Society of Nutrition Spokesperson Shelley McGuire. “The results of the study … provides a very interesting new piece to the obesity puzzle by suggesting that meal monotony may actually lead to reduced calorie consumption. The trick will be balancing this concept with the importance of variety to good nutrition.” From a nutritional standpoint, food variety is better for providing a body’s necessary vitamins and minerals, said Williamson, the dietitian from BMC. She said she would generally discourage a monotonous diet. When it comes to weight loss, some people succeed better with limited choices, she said. But as for maintenance, she wouldn’t recommend limiting food choices. “I also think it’s better to enjoy what you’re eating,” she said. “If we lose interest in certain foods, we go to things we shouldn’t, so I think that could backfire.” Anne Aurand can be reached at 541-383-0304 or at aaurand@bendbulletin.com.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Allison Suran, PT GCFP

QUESTION: I have a physical therapy prescription for treatment for headaches, and it says I should have biofeedback. What is this, and why would it help me? A NSWER : Biofeedback refers to the process of increasing one’s awareness of a physical function or state, and then using that awareness to change that function. In physical therapy we focus on such things as breathing patterns, muscle tone and temperature, and biofeedback can be very helpful in improving health and performance. With practice biofeedback enhances the changes that can be maintained independently.

Biofeedback is very helpful in the treatment of headaches. The treatment focuses on the elimination of unnecessary muscle tension in the neck with activities such as normal breathing. Excess tension in the neck muscles causes head pain, and is the very definition of a tension headache. Biofeedback units have a visual display (or auditory tone) allowing the patient to monitor body functions. The process is completely painless and non-threatening. Many patients report that they feel really relaxed after their sessions. At Healing Bridge Physical Therapy we have hour long private treatment sessions which allow us the time to utilize biofeedback in the successful treatment of patients with many diverse conditions.

WELLNESS QUESTION: What’s the difference between in-home care and assisted living/residential care? ANSWER: Both of these options provide caregivers who help people with activities associated with daily living (dressing, meals, medication, etc.). Communities offering assisted living and residential care provide caregivers 24 hours a day and thus can assist with urgent or emergent needs. They Scott Neil, also provide nursing assessments and medication MSW management. To receive this care, an individual lives in the licensed community and can realize other benefits, such as extensive life enrichment activities that enhance a person’s quality of life. In-home care from a licensed agency requires that a person’s health and functioning are stable and predictable. The care is scheduled on a regular basis. People with increasing needs for assistance should look at both options to determine which one best meets their functional needs as well as their financial situation. Touchmark provides both residential care and in-home care and can help people determine the best option for them. Call 541-312-7071 to visit with one of our retirement counselors.

A D VA N C E D S P E C I A LT Y C A R E QUESTION: What are the symptoms of gallstones? What is the treatment of gallstones? ANSWER: Gallstones (cholelithiasis) are very common. 10-20% of the adult population in developed countries has gallstones with a higher prevalence in women, the obese, and older patients. 80% of patients with gallstones are asymptomatic. The 20% of patients with symptomatic gallstones are most likely to develop complications without timely surgical treatment. The complications can range from recurrent gallbladder attacks to John C. Land, pancreatitis and possible liver and bile duct infection. Patients M.D., FACS become symptomatic with regards to their gallstones at a rate of 1-2% per year. The typical symptoms of a gallbladder attack include right upper quadrant pain usually after eating although a significant number of patients complain of mid epigastric pain. The pain is usually spasmodic in nature and may last several hours before relief. These attacks are often precipated by fatty meals although most foods can cause symptoms and can have associated nausea and vomiting. Some atypical presentations may include vague abdominal pain, increased flatulence, burping, heartburn, and even chest pain. The diagnosis is made based on patient history, physical examination, laboratory studies, and diagnostic ultrasound. Once a patient becomes symptomatic, elective cholecystectomy (surgery) is indicated. Alternative nonstandard forms of treatment include dissolution of gallstones with oral agents, and extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy. Cholecystectomy may be performed by laparoscopic techniques or open surgery. For most patients who undergo elective cholecystectomy, the ability to perform the case laparoscopically is quite high.

EYE CARE QUESTION: What are the symptoms of dry eye? ANSWER: The most common symptoms of dry eye include stinging and burning, watering, itch, and blurred vision. In our clinic, blurred vision seems to be the most significant and common symptom. Blurred vision caused by dry eye is typically intermittent in nature, Ida Alul, fluctuating between clear functional vision M.D. and streaked or “ghosted” vision. For people who spend a lot of time on the computer, the combination of a reduced blink rate and the closed, forced-air environment of many work places leads to rapid evaporation of the tear film. When the tear film evaporates, it’s analogous to driving in a rain storm with a bad set of windshield wipers. We need a nice smooth tear film to see clearly. There are multiple treatment options for dry eye. Consult your eye care physician to see what is best for you.

and have dentures. Does this mean that I am going to lose my teeth? Is there a family connection? ANSWER: It used to be much more common to lose your teeth early in life. Fortunately this has changed. With proper awareness and care it is very rare that a person will lose their teeth. Our understanding of all of the factors that lead to tooth loss has increased dramatically.

ANSWER: Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for acute or chronic back pain and pain and numbness radiating into the legs or arms. Even patients who have previously had surgery and continue to have pain can potentially Payson Flattery, benefit from spinal decompression. Commonly N.D., D.C., PC treated conditions for spinal decompression include: Low back pain, Sciatica (leg and foot pain/numbness), Post surgical patients with continued pain, Neck pain and arm/hand symptoms. We offer spinal decompression alongside all of our other treatments and submit claims to insurance or offer reasonable cash prices per treatment, unlike other clinics which sell spinal decompression in packages with high pressure sales tactics. Many patients have been dealing with their pain for months or even years. As time progresses, this pain often becomes more persistent and may increase in intensity. Many of these cases are responsive only to decompression therapy. Please call our office for more information. 541-504-0250

PLASTIC SURGERY QUESTION: I read with interest a question you previously answered regarding hair transplants for men but as a woman I am interested in if you perform this type of single hair technique on women; specifically my eyebrows? I lost part of my eyebrows in a fire when I was young and they have never returned to their normal shape or size. Adam Angeles, M.D.

ANSWER: Yes, we do perform hair transplants using only single hair follicles for both men and women. In fact we have found that the ‘single follicular unit transfer’ technique for both men and women produces the most natural hairline available. Men and women can benefit with this simple yet effective hair transfer technique. Amazingly, the transfer of individual hairs is useful for eyebrows, sideburns and beards as well! At Bend Plastic Surgery we will counsel you and formulate a personal hair restoration plan based upon your desires.

SPINE / CHIROPRACTIC QUESTION: My wife is currently suffering from a whiplash injury related to being hit from behind by another car. What can we do to help prevent whiplash injuries? Answer: One of the main preventable risk factors for rear impact crash related whiplash injuries is related to head restraint geometry. When a vehicle is struck in the rear, an occupant suddenly moves forward with the seat, and if the head isn’t supported, it will lag behind the body. This bends and stretches the neck backward Brad Pfeiffer, in a whiplash injury. Seat/head restraints can reduce DC these injuries by keeping the head and body moving together in a rear impact. A properly positioned head restraint should have the top of the restraint at or above the top of the occupants ears, and should also be positioned as close to the back of the head as possible (ideally no more than 2 inches from the back of the head). A seat reclined back too far will increase this distance, as will poor posture. In 2007, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found that twothirds of all SUVs, pickup trucks, and minivans did not offer adequate protection against whiplash. They reported that in some pickups especially, the head restraints couldn’t be adjusted enough to provide the right kind of support during a crash. Before buying a new car, truck, or van, do your research to make sure that you’re getting the best protection for your neck. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our office.

THE BULLETIN • Thursday, August 18, 2011 F5

M Consolidate Continued from F1 “What we’ve seen in the political debate is focused on whether or not insurers are competitive,” said John McConnell, “I think what’s been missing completely and not discussed at all is the power for providers to exert market power. It’s easy to beat up on health plans but nobody really wants to beat up on their local hospital.” As health care providers consolidate, they are able to exert more market power. That means that when they name a price, there’s little for health insurers and consumers to do but take it. “If you have a market where providers have a lot of power and insurers have not,” said McConnell, “then it will cause high prices.” But market power may only go so far in this current economy. Some experts said it could be that other forces would lessen the ability of health care providers, even increasingly powerful ones, to raise prices.

The old way: Size equals power Though people don’t typically think of health care this way, it functions like many other markets. When there is less competition, hospitals or physician practices have more power to raise prices. We’ve all had the experience of driving through a small town with only one or two gas stations. If you need to fill up, you just accept the price offered. But, when you’re in a place with more stations, you can shop around a bit and choose the one with the lowest price, or another station for a different reason. Health care works in a similar way. When there are several hospitals, it’s harder for one single entity to set prices. The only difference is that in health care, it’s not the consumer shopping for prices but insurance companies, which negotiate prices for their members. The difference in prices among competitive versus consolidated health care markets has been demonstrated in a number of different studies. One of the most interesting was published last month in the journal Health Affairs. The author, James Robinson, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley, looked at data on costs of surgery at 61 hospitals in California. He averaged the amount a hospital collected for a given surgery, from the patient and his or her insurer, including from Medicare. He found a number of things. First, Medicare paid way less for the same procedure than did commercial insurers. Medicare, funded by the federal government, does not negotiate the way that commercial insurers do; it names a price and hospitals must decide to take it or not see any Medicare patients, which very very few can afford to do. In the study, for example, Robinson found that Medicare paid on average, $13,700 for a hip replacement, while private insurance paid nearly $24,000 for the same procedure. Then, Robinson looked at how much the hospital made off each procedure once they had subtracted their costs. Medicare and commercially insured patients cost the hospital about the same for care; if anything Medicare patients cost a bit more, according to the study. In the study, hospitals made, on average about $360 for each Medicare patient who had a hip replacement and $11,300 for each commercially insured patient who had one.

Next week Many seniors pay more than they need to because they don’t know what help is available.

those trickle down to savings for patients.

Cost-shifting of payments Commercial insurance pays more to hospitals for medical procedures than Medicare. This is known as cost-shifting, and is a part of the reason for high insurance premiums.

What can you do to get the best price? • Shop around. Medical practices are like retail businesses. They set their own prices. Some cost more than others. • Ask for a discount. Some providers give discounts to people who pay up front for a service, particularly if they don’t have health insurance. Ask before you go to an appointment if that is the case with your provider. • Check your bill. Up to 80 percent of medical bills contain errors, according to estimates. Check your explanation of benefits and billing statement to make sure you actually received everything on the bill. Get an itemized bill if necessary. Also, check that the final bill from the organization matches the amount that your insurer (through the explanation of benefits) says is your responsibility. • Ask if a test is necessary. If you’ve recently had a specific test done, or if you are healthy and in for a routine check-up, some tests may not be necessary. Talk to your physician about what you really need.

Finally, Robinson looked at how much hospitals made in different areas of California. Here’s where it really got interesting. Hospitals in competitive areas made more money off Medicare than hospitals that did not have to compete. In our hip replacement example, a hospital in a competitive market made about $1,000 for each Medicare patient; in a market where the hospital did not compete it lost about $300 per Medicare patient. But the hospitals in noncompetitive markets more than made up for that with commercially insured patients, netting nearly $16,000 on each hip replacement compared with just over $6,700 for hospitals in competitive markets.

What’s the explanation? Robinson attributes these differences to each hospital’s market power. In competitive markets, hospitals are unable to raise prices, so to stay afloat and make a profit, they reduce costs. That explains why they can make more off Medicare; it simply costs them less to care for each patient. On the other hand, hospitals that have a monopoly can simply raise their prices for commercial health insurers. They don’t need to be more efficient with their costs, because they can shift it to a large extent to private payers. Because of St. Charles mar-

ket power, this second scenario is what has been happening in Central Oregon. “When we don’t have a competitor there’s not that added incentive to get your operations in order,” said Diegel. Being the only hospital, he said, has afforded St. Charles “the opportunity to do (things) that others wouldn’t do, and maybe not be as disciplined on the cost side.”

Effect of consolidation So, if size means power, then just what does the increasing size of Central Oregon’s medical providers mean for cost here? Like many things in health care, the answer is not so simple. First, here, there’s the question of whether more market power would really affect St. Charles given that it has a near monopoly. The same could be said for BMC, though not necessarily for the small practices aligning themselves with each organization. But, more importantly, the way contracts are being negotiated with insurers is beginning to change. “The expectations of the health care system are different moving forward,” said Peter McGarry, vice president of provider networks for PacificSource Health Plans. “I think the directness-ofsize equals leverage is just not the case anymore.” Whereas health care providers used to negotiate prices for each service, with providers paid more when they did more, McGarry said that beginning last year, PacificSource included some incentives for better performance in a few of its contracts. The insurer sets quality or patient satisfaction, and if health care providers meet those, they can earn bonuses, he said. He said he envisions more contracts structured this way in the future. Dr. Sean Rogers, medical director at BMC, said he, too, saw insurers moving toward performance incentives for contracts. That could mean bigger entities are better positioned for more money, he said, but not because of market power. Providing data on quality and patient satisfaction, measures that insurers care about, costs money. Organizations need sophisticated technology and personnel with the expertise to analyze data. “We can do that and we are doing that,” said Rogers. “Smaller groups are going to be under pressure to provide the same types of information and they won’t be able.” While payments based on quality have widely been lauded as a way to begin to lower overall health care costs, and they certainly do improve provider incentives, Rogers said patients may not see lower bills immediately. He said prices will not likely drop. What may happen instead is that there are savings at the clinic and health plan level, and

Shopping for insurance may get easier McClatchy-Tribune News Service WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has awarded more than $185 million in grants to 13 states, including Oregon, and the District of Columbia to help establish new state-based health insurance marketplaces where consumers can shop for insurance starting in 2014, a key benefit of the new health care law. These Internet-based exchanges, designed to help Americans who don’t receive health benefits through their employer, are in-

tended to make buying health insurance akin to comparison shopping online for an airline ticket or a hotel room. The exchanges will provide basic information about health plans, including premiums and covered benefits. Oregon received $8,969,600 in grant money to set up its exchange. By 2019, the exchanges are expected to provide insurance for an estimated 24 million Americans, most of whom will receive sub-

sidies to help them buy a health plan because they are expected to earn too little to bear the full cost. Employers with fewer than 100 workers also will be able to use the exchanges, which will have to offer plans with a minimum level of coverage. No plans will be able to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. Obama administration officials have been racing to get states to set up exchanges because they are so central to the coverage expansion envisioned by the new law.

V I TA L STATS

The new way: no more money

Reducing unnecessary trips to ER

A drop in prices, or at least an end to the rise in prices, could come from something other than consolidation or the changing of insurer incentives. It may be that everyone is just tapped out. No one can afford to pay more. “The new mantra (for) hospitals is they have to achieve break-even on Medicare,” said Robinson. That is, they can’t shift costs to commercial insurers any more. Private insurance, Robinson said, is becoming too expensive for small businesses or many families, and people are dropping coverage. “By increasing prices to private insurers, (hospitals) are killing the goose that laid the golden egg.” Diegel said he had recently been at a conference in which many health care executives were saying the same thing. Historically, St. Charles has had price increases every year, said Diegel, but that is “becoming increasingly difficult.” “We have been told that you have to get your cost structures under control,” Diegel said. “Payers are demanding it, the government is demanding it, patients are demanding, everyone is demanding that we get more cost efficient.” Diegel said in this kind of an environment, consolidation doesn’t affect prices because no one will pay more. He doubted it would here. “Consolidation does have the propensity to increase costs, but it’s becoming harder to raise costs and shift them to someone else.”

A program to reduce unnecessary trips to Central Oregon's emergency rooms is seeing huge successes. It targets so-called "frequent fliers," people who use the emergency room often, typically for problems better addressed somewhere else. Community health workers aid these people in finding a primary care physician and getting help they need, such as transportation to a doctor's office. So far, compared with last year, the program has reduced ER visits in this population by nearly half. Though cost savings are harder to quantify, one person involved estimated savings of $35,000 per month in overall health care costs.

EXERCISE TIPS Sometimes your workout should be a tug-of-war The catch phrase “functional fitness” refers to exercises that integrate multiple muscle groups. Functional fitness strengthens engthens the body in ways that mimic real-life motion, otion, preparing the body for action. Personal trainers ners from Bend who specialize in functional fitness ss helped create this six-part, weekly series highlighting hting equipment you can use at home and some me tips on how to use it. sistance exercise Part 4: Elastic resistance bands Elastic resistance bands are versatile.

handles of the bands with straight arms in front of the body, palms down. Pull the handles down and back, away from the anchor, brushing your thumbs against your thighs. The greater the range of motion — the farther you pull back — the more muscles you’ll use, Will said. This primarily targets the shoulders, triceps and latissimus muscles. Will emphasized: Don’t let the resistance snap it back; maintain resistance in both directions. Try slow steady pulls for one minute, or 1520 slow repetitions. The higher the number of reps, the longer and leaner the muscles will become. These bands don’t build bulky muscles, Will said.

Costs: One elastic tubing with handles can cost less than $10. Sets of bands with varying resistance can start around $20. Some come with attachments to create an anchor on a door. Shop online or in sporting goods stores. — Anne Aurand, The Bulletin

Strength training is OK for kids — with guidelines By Marjie Gilliam Cox News Service

DAYTON, Ohio — Although it was once advised that children not engage in resistance training exercise, we now know this is not good advice. Major health organizations fully support children’s participation in appropriately designed and competently supervised strength and conditioning training programs. Generally speaking, if a child is able to participate in organized sports or activities, there is no reason to withhold the benefits that strength training has to offer. Children must be mentally and physically ready and able to comply with coaching instructions and undergo the stress of a training program. In general,

if a child is ready for participation in sport activities (generally age 7 or 8), then he or she is ready for some type of resistance training. Research has demonstrated that children as young as 6 years of age can benefit from a properly taught and executed weight-training program. An important note: Exercise can aggravate certain medical conditions in children such as asthma, diabetes and/or high blood pressure. To be safe, it is advisable to have your child evaluated by a physician before beginning a strength training program. Any sign of injury or illness occurring once training has begun should also be evaluated before continuing the exercise in question.

Have safe workout • Experienced, qualified instructors and supervision must be provided. • Begin with relatively light weight loads with focus on proper form and technique. • Perform one to three sets of six to 15 repetitions, with a variety of upper and lower body strength exercises. • Begin with two to three times per week on nonconsecutive days. • Assess and reassess. Training programs should change from time to time depending on current needs, goals and abilities and to help with motivation.

Run Continued from F1 “This is a debate, actually, that’s been ongoing for decades,” said Dave Clark, cross-country coach at Summit High School in Bend. “This kind of thing has been studied before.” “From my opinion, after coaching 20 years and talking to runners and being a runner, I’d say it’s not that simple,” he said. “Every person is different.” His thoughts were echoed by other experts and runners. What a body needs for optimal performance and to avoid injury depends on the individual’s personal biomechanics and running goals. Runners who compete in shorter distance races, such as an 800-meter run, don’t need to wear their bodies down with more mileage to be strong competitors, Clark said. But the rest of runners — facing anything from a 5K to a marathon — are going to have to put in some distance. Competitive distance runner Jason Moyer, a 38-year-old carpenter from Bend, has logged plenty of miles. But over time, on his own, he realized he was better off substituting some of those long runs with shorter, faster runs. Moyer has been running marathons and ultramarathons since college. A few years back, for 12 consecutive weeks he ran between 100 and 140 miles per week. “By the end of that I had ruined my left knee,” he said. A muscular imbalance led to tendonitis, and he stopped running for a year. “When I started back, I found that I could run as fast as I wanted but just not as far anymore,” he said. He discovered, partly by experimenting and partly by reading related research, that he was going to be better off if he switched out some long runs with some 20- to 30-minute, high-tempo runs. As a result, he’s generally injury-free, and he’s still pretty fast, with fewer training miles. Plus, he said, “I don’t have the time to run 100 miles a week anymore, or the energy. Most people with full-time jobs are the same way. If you can spend less time and still progress toward a PR (personal record), then why not?” “If you’re just running slow, you’ll get to be a better slow runner. Depending on your goals, that might or might not work,” he said. But, average runners are liable to get hurt if they take up speed work too fast. “I’ve learned you have to listen to your body. I always warm up 20 to 40 minutes before a speed workout. If I’m not feeling energetic or loose enough, I won’t do it,” he said.

Need for speed? Here’s how Want to try to increase your speed by adding some interval work? Intervals are bursts of speed work alternated with recovery periods. Try alternating three easy minutes of jogging with three harder minutes of running — 85 to 90 percent of maximum effort. Repeat five times, for a cumulative 15 minutes of speed work and 15 minutes of easy, slow running. To start, do this only once a week. Source: Denny Dragan, physical therapist at Rebound Physical Therapy

“You have to train as hard as your body will allow you, not going over the line. I think that’s true in speed work as well. You always want to finish that workout thinking you could have done one more.” Denny Dragan, a physical therapist at Rebound Physical Therapy, said for most runners — or cyclists or swimmers for that matter — who want to get faster, it’s important to add some higher-intensity training, or intervals (bursts of speed work alternated with recovery periods). But the problem, he said, is that most people are not in tune with their bodies, so they’re likely to

overdo it. That’s when injuries happen. Speed work is like strength training, Dragan said. After a speed workout, people’s bodies and muscles have to rebuild, so they need recovery days between hard workouts. For the recreational runner who wants to be faster, he suggested trying longer-duration intervals, such as three- to fourminute surges of higher speed. Shorter periods of speed (such as 30 seconds) are more conducive to overloading the body’s capacity to the point of injury, he said. To start, a runner might try three easy minutes of jogging and then three harder minutes at 85 to 90 percent of maximum effort. Repeat that fast/slow cycle five times. This plan would provide 15 minutes of hard, fast running and 15 minutes of easy, slow running. And, try this no more than once or twice a week. He said most injuries come from people who train hard day after day and don’t give their bodies time to recover. Varying workouts and including recovery days is crucial to avoiding injuries. As for long-slow versus shortfast runs, the takeaway message, he said, is “you have to do both.” Anne Aurand can be reached at 541-383-0304 or at aaurand@bendbulletin.com.

The said real property will be sold to satisfy the obligations secured by said trust deed and a notice of default has been recorded pursuant to Oregon Revised Statutes 86.735(3); the default for which the foreclosure is made is grantor's failure to pay when due the following sums: Loan No. 103000170: Failure to make regular monthly payments on September 9, 2010 and each month thereafter pursuant to the terms of the Promissory Note, Trust Deed and accompanying loan documents. As a result, the Bank has accelerated amounts owing upon the loan and all amounts are now due and owing.

Notice is further given that any person named in ORS 86.753 has the right, at any time not later than five days before the date last set for the sale, to have this foreclosure proceeding dismissed and the non-merged portion of the trust deed reinstated by paying the entire amount then due (other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred), together with costs, trustee's fees and attorney fees, and by curing any other default complained of in the notice of default, that is capable of being cured by tendering the performance required under the obligation or trust deed.
