Fuqua Homes loses licenses, faces fines

Study may decide fate of Bend water project By Nick Grube The Bulletin

To appease critics of Bend’s $68.2 million Bridge Creek water project, city officials may commission a new study to determine if they’ve chosen the right path. For more than a year, the project has been faulted for its cost, which will increase

water rates, and its effect on Tumalo Creek. Critics have argued the city should rely entirely upon groundwater. At least seven former mayors have spoken against the project, and a political action committee has been formed to support candidates opposed to it next November. See Water / A4

Phillip Daniels, president of Fuqua Homes, lost his license as a manufactured home dealer. State regulators on Thursday said the company broke laws by not telling customers that its factory had closed. Above, Daniels in 2008 at the factory in Bend.

State regulators have revoked licenses to sell and produce manufactured homes from Fuqua Homes Inc. and imposed a $155,000 civil fine, saying the company, which operated a factory and dealership in Bend, took deposits but failed to deliver some homes, according to an order

released Thursday. The order from the Department of Consumer and Business Services’ Division of Finance and Corporate Securities states that the Texas-based company took 26 deposits totaling more than $500,000 for manufactured homes that were not built and did not give refunds. See Fuqua / A5

WASHINGTON — As they introduced their new plan for Medicare on Thursday, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., spoke repeatedly about building a bipartisan consensus by using the best ideas of both progressives and conservatives. The Ryan-Wyden plan would preserve guaranteed federal payments for services provided, a cornerstone of traditional Medicare viewed as untouchable on the left. IN D.C. To this, it would add private options that provide comprehensive coverage, and give patients the option of choosing a less expensive plan from an insurance exchange. To keep an increase in treatment costs from being passed on to Medicare patients, the plan ties premium payments to changes to the gross domestic product plus 1 percent. If costs rise faster, Congress would be responsible for prodding providers into findings ways to cut costs. Rather than castigating the other party over their positions, Wyden and Ryan set out to merge the best ideas from both sides. “This proposal is about the proposition that there is a window of opportunity here, a chance to change the conversation, to lower the decibel level,” Wyden said. “At some point you’ve got to start paving the way to the future. And here’s a chance to highlight some of the strengths of both political parties. See Medicare / A4

Congress strikes an optimistic tone after spending deal By Jennifer Steinhauer and Robert Pear New York Times News Service

Paying a ‘tax’ for sports, even if you don’t watch By Brian Stelter and Amy Chozick

Vol. 108, No. 350, 66 pages, 7 sections


New York Times News Service

Are you ready for some football? You’re paying for it regardless. Though “sports” never appears as a line item on a cable or satellite bill, American TV subscribers pay, on average, about $100 a year for sports programming — no matter how many games they watch. A sizable portion goes to the NFL, which dominates TV sports and which struck an extraordinary deal this week with major networks — $27 billion over nine years — that most likely means cable bills will rise again soon.

Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin

Those spiraling costs are fraying the formerly tight bonds between the creators and distributors of television. Cable channels like ESPN that carry games are charging cable and satellite operators more, and broadcast networks are now doing the same, demanding cash for their broadcast signals and using sports as leverage. And higher fees are raising concerns across the industry that cable bills may be reaching the breaking point for some consumers who are

The NFL contracts announced this week “will surely enrich NFL owners and players just as much as it will impoverish all pay TV subscribers, particularly those who will never watch an NFL game,” said Matthew Polka, the president of the American Cable Association, which represents small cable operators. His group wants government officials to step in and make it harder for channel owners to demand higher fees for carriage and drop the channels when operators disagree. See Sports / A5

Accounting for Social Security

The program’s revenues come from a 12.4 percent payroll tax split between workers and employers. A 2 percent tax cut for workers in 2011 reduced income by $105 billion, but the law requires that the fund be reimbursed with general revenues. The cut is set to expire at the end of this year unless Congress extends it.

Social Security is a pay-as-you-go program financed by payroll taxes on workers and employers. When its revenues fall short of the benefits it owes in a given year, it covers payments by drawing on a $2.6 trillion fund that is accounted for separately from the federal budget and invested in government bonds. It is estimated that unless changes are made to the system, the fund will be able to pay full benefits until the surplus is exhausted in 2036, and about three quarters of benefits after that.

WASHINGTON — For all of the partisan brawling over President Barack Obama’s call to extend a temporary payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans, one concern is bipartisan: A significant minority of Democrats and Republicans say that cutting the taxes that finance Social Security benefits will further undermine the program. The Obama administration, many budget experts (but not all) and the chief actuary for the Social Security Administration say the proposal will do no such thing. But some conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats who agree on little else are just as adamant that it will. Both parties predict the payroll tax cut will be extended beyond its Dec. 31 expiration, although the question of how to pay for it and some other unrelated issues in the year-end legislation continued to hold it up Wednesday. Still, the disagreement over the tax cut lingers. It is less over money than philosophy, and it reflects a debate as old as the 75-year-old program about Social Security’s fundamental structure. Critics predict one extension will lead to another as politicians balk at raising taxes to their former level, especially if unemployment remains high.

“Imagine that next December the unemployment rate is 8 percent and a year later it’s 7.4 percent,” said Robert Reischauer, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is one of two public trustees for Social Security. “We’ll still be trying to stimulate employment and terminating the payroll tax holiday will be a big hit on most families, one that will hurt job growth.” Democrats fear that repeated extensions would disrupt the link that President Franklin D. Roosevelt forged to lock in support for Social Security: With workers taxed for their benefits, politicians would not cut them. And Republicans object that transferring general revenue to Social Security to offset the tax cut makes the program more like welfare and worsens the federal budget deficit. Politics aside, the bottom line is that a temporary tax cut is inconsequential to Social Security’s long-term health, from an accounting perspective. The threat remains the financial pressure of an aging population. Social Security is essentially a pay-as-you-go system, with payroll taxes from workers flowing back out to retirees, survivors and the disabled. Last year, before the tax cut, the system for the first time since 1983 collected less

in taxes than it paid out to 55 million beneficiaries — $49 billion less. The program’s operating deficits will grow as more of the 78 million baby boomers become eligible. But trust fund reserves built up over years of annual surpluses will not run out until 2036, when tax revenue will cover three-quarters of benefits, trustees project. That projection would be unchanged by Obama’s proposal to extend and expand the payroll tax relief that he and congressional Republicans agreed to a year ago to spur the economy, because they also agreed to transfer general revenue to Social Security to make up the difference. The trust fund “would be unaffected by enactment of this provision,” Stephen Goss, the chief actuary for Social Security Administration, wrote to administration officials — just as he had about the tax bill a year ago. The 12.4 percent payroll tax is split between employees and employers, and the current break reduces workers’ share by 2 percentage points, to 4.2 percent. Because that reduces Social Security revenue this year by about $105 billion, the program is credited with that amount from general revenue. And workers get credit for the full tax for purposes of calculating their future benefits.

This fall, with the economy still fragile, Obama proposed as part of his $447 billion jobcreation plan to extend the tax cut for 2012, increase it to 3.1 percentage points and expand it to employers for their first $5 million of payroll — in effect cutting the tax in half for employees and most employers. His proposal, which was more popular with Obama’s political advisers than with Treasury officials, would have reduced Social Security revenue by $240 billion next year. Democrats recently limited their proposal to employees and the self-employed, cutting its cost to $185 billion given complaints from liberals and conservatives. In December 2010, liberal lawmakers, conservatives and seniors groups mostly went along with the tax cut since it was intended for a year only. But when the White House began talking of an extension months ago, after economists predicted that economic growth would slow half a percentage point without the tax cut, opponents in both parties mobilized. Sixty-one liberals in the House, nearly one-third of the Democrats there, wrote to Obama in July to say they were “gravely concerned that yet another, unacceptable cut to Social Security’s revenue stream appears to be on the table.”

Thieves pocket-dial 911, leading to arrest The Associated Press MADISON, Wis. — Police in Wisconsin’s capital city barely had to try to catch a pair of unlucky suspected thieves. Madison police say two men in their late 20s stole DVDs and computer games from a Target store Tuesday and discussed their plans to fence the goods while driving away. Investigators say the duo didn’t realize one of them had accidentally pocket-dialed 911. A dispatcher listened in for nearly an hour as they discussed what they had stolen and where they might sell it. Police say they even described their vehicle. Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the pair decided to sell their goods at a video store. When they pulled into the store’s parking lot, officers surrounded their vehicle with guns drawn.

U.S. mission ends in Iraq, but wounds remain raw By David S. Cloud and David Zucchino Los Angeles Times

BAGHDAD — After nearly nine years of war, the loss of more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of dollars spent, the U.S. military mission in Iraq has formally ended. But violence continues to roil the Mideast nation, and its political destiny is far from certain. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other top U.S. officials conducted a low-key ceremony on a military base at the Baghdad airport Thursday, furling the flag to signal the official conclusion of one of most divisive wars in American history. Panetta did not address the controversial origins of the war or Iraq’s continuing troubles. Instead, he paid tribute to the sacrifices of U.S. troops, nearly 4,500 of whom were killed and 32,200 wounded since thenPresident George W. Bush ordered the March 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. “To be sure, the cost was high — in blood and treasure for the United States and for the Iraqi people,” Panetta told about 200 troops and a few Iraqi officials during a 45-minute ceremony. “But those lives were not lost in vain — they gave birth to an independent, free and sovereign Iraq.” Only two U.S. bases and around 4,000 troops remained in Iraq as of Thursday, the rear guard of a force that was more than 170,000 strong at the height of the war and once controlled hundreds of bases. The last of them will depart Iraq by the weekend, officials said. About 200 U.S. military personnel will stay in Baghdad to administer arms sales and other limited military exchanges as members of the U.S. diplomatic mission. After more than eight years of security efforts, employees of the U.S. embassy in Baghdad say they still find it too

Army soldiers from 1st Cavalry Division load their baggage as they begin their journey home after deployment in Iraq, at Camp Virginia, Kuwait, on Thursday. After nearly nine years, 4,500 Americans and 100,000 Iraqis killed, U.S. officials formally shut down the war in Iraq.

dangerous to work in the country outside the campus-like “Green Zone,” hidden behind a series of towering walls. But there is no sanctuary from the sectarian divisions that remain a source of violence and instability. The Shiite Muslim-dominated government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is riddled with corruption, divided and often dysfunctional. Resentment over their political marginalization continues to simmer among the Sunni minority that ran Iraq during Hussein’s days. Some Sunnis are urging secession, or at least a statewithin-a-state similar to the Kurdish-controlled zone in northern Iraq. The government also faces continuing problems with private Shiite militias, some with close ties to Iran. Muqtada al-Sadr, the virulently antiAmerican cleric whose militiamen have fought and killed

U.S. troops, controls the Promised Day Brigade in open defiance of the new constitution. Al-Sadr’s party holds 40 seats in parliament. ‘They threaten the use of that militia if they don’t get their way,” Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, chief spokesman for the U.S. military in Iraq, said of the Sadrists. “It’s an affront to Iraq’s sovereignty. And potentially what you have is a government within a government.” The violence also goes on. By some estimates, an average of 30 bombings and other attacks occur each week, and about ten deaths a day. That death toll is roughly 20 percent of the daily toll during the worst days of sectarian warfare in 2006. More than 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed, according to Iraq Body Count, a website tracking the war. About 12 percent died at the hands of American forces, and

the rest in terrorist attacks, sectarian violence and extrajudicial executions. The security of civilians is now the responsibility of Iraqi soldiers and police, now visible on virtually every major street in Baghdad, searching passing cars and patrolling avenues. More than a year ago, they took over security responsibilities after U.S. forces withdrew from Iraq’s cities. With Americans gone, it is up to men like Corporal Hatim Abdul Kareem to help control the country’s endemic violence. He has his doubts. A Shiite Muslim, he lost a cousin to a sectarian killing. He fears more bloodletting after U.S. troops leave. “After the Americans are gone, there will be war in the streets,” he said. “This is not just me saying this. Other soldiers are saying this. My family, my friends — they’re all saying the violence will get worse.”

Monti offers taxes but no big reforms ROME — Prime Minister Mario Monti came into office last month with a mandate to restart Italy’s economy and restore Europe’s confidence in the country amid an intractable debt crisis. But the package he will put to a vote in Parliament today consists primarily of tax increases, not the structural changes to the economy that many experts say are necessary to restart healthy growth. Monti’s difficulty in carrying out economic reforms could weaken the underpinnings of the accord reached in Brussels last week in which European leaders agreed to greater political coordination to support the euro, combined with pressure to bring Europe’s debt-ridden southern fringe back to growth.

U.S., N.

In lieu of foods like rice and beans that in the past have ended up in the bowls of North Korea’s military, U.S. officials say they want to send vitamin supplements, high-protein biscuits and Plumpy Nut, a highenergy paste that has been widely given to malnourished children in Africa.

Report finds abuses among Afghan police KABUL, Afghanistan — Some U.S.-trained, Afghan local police officers have engaged in illegal taxation, carried weapons outside their villages and in some cases committed assault, but overall the NATO military leadership thinks they have been “effective,” according to a report issued Thursday.

Gingrich on defensive in last debate before Iowa caucuses By Dan Balz and Philip Rucker The Washington Post

SIOUX CITY, Iowa — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich became the main target Thursday in the last debate before the Iowa caucuses, forced to defend his record in Congress, his work as a private citizen, and fears among many Republicans that he would put his party at risk in a general election against President Barack Obama. Gingrich fought back repeatedly against the attacks by his rivals and persistent questions from the debate moderators. He compared the questions about his candidacy to the doubts some voters had about Ronald Reagan before he was elected in 1980 and asserted that his record as speaker in enacting welfare reform and balanced budgets should allay fears that he lacks the leadership and discipline to be president. “I believe I can debate Barack Obama, and I think in seven three-hour debates, Barack Obama will not have a leg to stand on in trying to defend a record that is terrible and an ideology that is radical,” he said. The debate came during a

week in which the tone of the campaign has turned more negative, with most of the attacks aimed at Gingrich, and when personal campaigning and television commercials in Iowa are beginning to play a larger role. Gingrich faces the challenge of maintaining the support he built up over the past month in the face of the most intense attacks of the campaign. The debate, which lacked some of the fireworks of Saturday’s forum in Des Moines, touched on a wide range of domestic and foreign policy issues, from the economy to Iran to judgeships. But one of the overriding issues of the campaign — electability — was a focal point of the debate’s opening stages, with Mitt Romney, Gingrich’s principal rival, invoking his private-sector experience as a far better credential for going up against Obama. “I can debate President Obama based upon that understanding. And I’ll have credibility on the economy when he doesn’t. ... This president doesn’t know how the economy works. I believe to create jobs, it helps to have created jobs.” Some of the sharpest criti-

cism of Gingrich came from other candidates. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota accused him of lobbying for Freddie Mac, which paid the former speaker $1.6 million in consulting fees. “The speaker had his hand out and was taking $1.6 million to influence senior Republicans to keep the scam going in Washington, D.C,” she said. “That’s absolutely wrong. We can’t have as our nominee of the Republican Party someone who continues to stand for Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. They need to be shut down, not built up.” Texas Gov. Rick Perry picked up on the Freddie Mac issue by arguing that trying to make a distinction between consulting and lobbying highlighted what’s wrong with the culture in Washington. Gingrich took issue with his rivals’ characterizations. “I never lobbied under any circumstance,” he said. “The truth is, I was a national figure who was doing just fine, doing a whole variety of things, including writing best-selling books, making speeches. And the fact is, I only chose to work with people whose values I

U.S. finds bias against Latinos by Arizona sheriff By Marc Lacey New York Times News Service

PHOENIX — In a strongly worded critique of the country’s best-known sheriff, the Justice Department on Thursday accused Sheriff Joe Arpaio of engaging in “unconstitutional policing” by unfairly targeting Latinos for detention and arrest and retaliating against those who complain. After an investigation that lasted more than three years,

the civil rights division of the Justice Department said in a 22-page report that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, which Arpaio leads, had “a pervasive culture of discriminatory bias against Latinos” that “reaches the highest levels of the agency.” The department interfered with the inquiry, the government said, prompting a lawsuit that eventually led Arpaio and his deputies to cooperate.

“We have peeled the onion to its core,” said Thomas Perez, the assistant attorney general for civil rights, noting during a conference call with reporters Thursday morning that more than 400 inmates, deputies and others had been interviewed as part of the review. Perez said the inquiry raised the question of whether Latinos were receiving “second-class policing services” in Maricopa County.

shared, and having people have a chance to buy a house is a value I believe still is important in America.” Rep. Ron Paul, who is a threat in Iowa, also found himself under attack on Thursday, with Bachmann leading the charge against him over his posture toward Iran. The Republican debate, the 13th of the year, was held at the Sioux City Convention Center and hosted by Fox News and the Iowa Republican Party. Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman also participated.

Medicare Continued from A1 “Bipartisanship, in my view, is not about accepting each other’s bad ideas. Bipartisanship is about trying to forge a better approach.” Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, said that if Congress does nothing, the status quo will bankrupt Medicare as the Baby Boomer generation becomes increasingly eligible. “The more we delay, the more we keep fighting each other, the more Medicare is put into jeopardy,” he said. “We want to show that a bipartisan solution is out there. We want to show that a bipartisan consensus is forming, and can be formed.” The proposed changes would not go into effect until 2022, meaning no one older than 54 would see their coverage affected. Wyden and Ryan said that they don’t even intend to introduce legislation formalizing their proposal until 2013, since it is clear it will go nowhere with the current makeup and adversarial mindset in Congress. Consequently, the idea has not been scored by the Congressional Budget Office, making it difficult to evaluate whether the plan would reduce overall healthcare costs for those older than 65. Both Ryan and Wyden conceded that any savings due to competition are speculative at this point, but Ryan insisted there will be savings. “Doing it this way harnesses the power of choice and competition,” he said. Essentially, seniors would be issued vouchers, with which they could pay for Medicare, or shop for cheaper options in a Medicare exchange, regulated so that every option offers comprehensive coverage so that private insurers can’t cherry pick the healthiest patients. The second lowest bid would set the rate for a given region, allowing for adjustments and savings beyond a centralized rate set in Washington for everybody. The White House quickly signaled its opposition to the proposal. “We are concerned that Wyden-Ryan, the proposal you mentioned, like Congressman Ryan’s earlier proposal, would undermine rather than strengthen Medicare,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said during a news conference. “The Wyden-Ryan proposal could, over time, cause the traditional Medicare program to ‘wither on the vine,’ because it would raise premiums, forcing many seniors to leave traditional Medicare and join private plans. And it would shift costs from the government to seniors.” Ethan Rome, the executive director of the grass roots advocacy organization Health Care for America Now, issued a statement calling it an “attempt to eliminate Medicare as we know it.”

Congress Continued from A1 The spending bill appeared to modify some policy measures that had drawn criticism from the White House, including eliminating one that reinstated tough restrictions on travel to Cuba. “Congress should not and cannot go on vacation before they have made sure that working families aren’t seeing their taxes go up by $1,000 and those who are out there looking for work don’t see their unemployment insurance expire,” President Barack Obama said Thursday as he encouraged Congress to reach a compromise. Administration officials said they would insist that the payroll tax holiday be extended to prevent damage to the struggling economy. As the Senate convened Thursday, Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, said he was “confident and optimistic” that Congress would be able to pass a huge spending measure and continue the payroll tax break before adjourning. It was a departure from the previous day, when he asserted that Democrats “obviously want to have the government shut down.” Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader, also sounded hopeful, saying that he and McConnell intended to “come up with something that will get us out of here at a reasonable time in the next few days.” For weeks, Republicans and Democrats have been fighting

“It’s a purely political proposal, and it’s just another version of the Ryan Republican plan to do away with Medicare and bankrupt seniors, but this time it’s got one Democrat on board. Ron Wyden’s support doesn’t make it bipartisan, and it doesn’t change the fact that this plan is about turning over the Medicare Trust Fund to Wall Street and the health insurance companies and replacing guaranteed benefits with vouchers,” Rome said. Wyden spokeswoman Jennifer Hoelzer fired back at critics. “If critics read the plan before characterizing it, they would learn that not only does our plan require Medicare to always be available in the Medicare exchange, it would only allow private plans to compete for Medicare customers if they can find a way to offer coverage that is at least as comprehensive and high quality as traditional fee-forservice Medicare,” she said in a statement. “We are not saying that private plans will be able to offer higher quality more affordable benefits than Medicare, rather we are saying that they should have an opportunity to try. Moreover, under our system not a single senior would be required to purchase health insurance from a private company, we just give them the option of choosing such a plan if it does a better job of meeting their regional, health or economic needs.” To some observers, Wyden has delivered a blow to Democrats’ hopes in 2012, by allowing Ryan and other Republicans to moderate their position on Medicare, which had previously been seen as a winning campaign issue for Democrats. The victory of Rep. Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., in a 2011 special election in a traditionally Republican district was largely seen as a referendum on Ryan’s budget and its proposed cuts to Medicare. Others think Wyden may have cornered Ryan into conceding that his budget, which relied heavily on cuts to Medicare to achieve reductions, is untenable. Essentially, Ryan has agreed to apply Obamacare to Medicare, which could make it easier for Democrats to advance the idea of government mandated care, supported by competition in health exchanges, for Americans under 65. “We are not oblivious to the politics,” Wyden said. “We know there’s a campaign ahead.” But their proposal shouldn’t render the political landscape unrecognizable. Voters can still evaluate candidates based on their previous statements and voting records, he said. “In terms of politics, my hope is that the president and anybody who’s a candidate for president would look at this.” — Reporter: 202-662-7456,

over how to pay for an extension of a payroll tax holiday for 160 million U.S. workers, one that will expire at the end of the year if Congress does not take action. That measure has become linked to a large spending bill that would keep the government financed through the rest of the fiscal year. While both sides have spent much of the week trying to outmaneuver one another and gain the political high ground, Thursday seemed to presage the second stage of what has become a familiar pattern in the 112th Congress — the ratcheting back of Stage 1, which is recriminations via press conference — on the road to Stage 3: a final, grudging compromise. At a minimum, the Senate, which has until Dec. 31 to act on the payroll tax before it reverts to a higher level, will seek a two-month stopgap extension of the payroll tax holiday, unemployment insurance and Medicare payment rates for doctors, at a cost of an estimated $40 billion. Senate leaders were still hoping to reach a deal on a longer-term plan. Democrats have dropped their idea of imposing a surtax on income of more than $1 million, and are now considering a plan that would find savings in other ways, including fees on the federal housing finance agencies, and could seek to end certain deductions and other tax benefits for millionaires. Staff members on both sides began poring through the 800page spending bill, preparing for a vote as early as today.

Water Continued from A1 On Thursday, Bend City Manager Eric King announced he is willing to spend city funds on a new analysis that he hopes will answer opponents’ criticisms. This could include another cost comparison between the current project and an alternative that would rely only on wells. “There’s a strong desire to take another look at the project,” King said. “It actually might be a good time to do that.” Bend, like other cities across the country, is under a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandate to treat its surface water for the potentially deadly microorganism cryptosporidium. To meet that requirement, the city decided to build a $29 million treatment facility as a part of the Bridge Creek overhaul, which also includes a 10-mile pipeline and a hydropower generator. Last month, though, Portland learned it would likely receive a variance from the state to avoid complying with the EPA mandate. Federal officials have also recently decided to re-evaluate the rule. In response, Bend decided to hire a lobbyist to see if the state might grant the city an extension on its project. Officials hope to avoid a potentially unnecessary $29 million expense or, alternatively, to complete the project in phases to reduce the impact to ratepayers.

King said the state may not respond until February. In the meantime, he said city staffers want to work with opponents of the Bridge Creek project on an analysis that will answer their questions and allay their concerns.

Evolving expenses He said the project has evolved a lot over the past few years, which argues in favor of a new study. At one time, he said, the city believed it would be able to take advantage of $25 million worth of green energy tax credits and generate nearly $1.7 million in annual hydropower revenue. Those credits have since disappeared, and hydropower revenues are expected to be less than $500,000 in the first year. “We always have to look for opportunities and challenges and react to them,” King said. “We can’t always set off on a course and never respond to the external conditions. The external environment is changing, and we need to respond to that.” Reaction from opponents has been measured. While they’re glad the city is open to studying the project again, they also hope it’s thorough and unbiased.

Previous analysis criticized as biased The city already has commissioned an analysis comparing its project and an all-groundwater alternative. That study has been criticized widely, however, because it was conducted by the

firm designing the surface water project, HDR Engineering. At that time, HDR Engineering had a chance to add more than $10 million to its contract with the city if the Bridge Creek alternative was chosen as the best option. “That’s what we’ve been asking for a long time, to have somebody else look at this,” said Bill Smith, the developer behind Bend’s Old Mill District and one of the most vocal opponents of the project. “HDR’s study was demonstrably biased,” he said. “So if we get somebody else to study it without a bias then we’ll come up with a different answer. I’m convinced.” If that analysis tells the city to keep going, however, he said he’ll no longer speak out against the project. Attorney Bill Buchanan, who has been perhaps the loudest critic, said the same thing. But he also noted that will only be true if the analysis is truly unbiased and includes input from members of the opposition. “If it is for the whole project and not just a piece of it, and if somebody besides city staff has an opportunity for input and interaction with a truly neutral set of engineers, then I think it’s a good idea,” Buchanan said. “If it’s only city staff interacting with engineers selected by city staff, then I think it’s a waste of time.” He said he hopes the city will delay spending any more money on the $68.2 million project until the analysis is complete.

The city, however, doesn’t plan to do that, according to King. As part of a two-year extension to comply with the EPA rule by 2014, he said the city promised it would continue working on a fix to its water system. That extension allowed the city to miss a 2012 compliance deadline.

Details foggy King also didn’t have many details about what an alternatives analysis would look like, how much it might cost or when it would be completed. Much of that will depend on discussions with members of the opposition group to see what specific concerns they want addressed. The study also wouldn’t begin, King said, until the state responds to the city’s questions about the federal cryptosporidium rule. Even then, he said, he’s fairly certain of the study’s result. “We feel very confident in the work that we have done to date,” he said. “(But) we welcome another look at it.” He said he also doesn’t want to see the community become divided over the project, and he believes the opponents have many of the same goals as the city. An example, he said, is a mutual desire to see healthier flows in Tumalo Creek. “I don’t think our interests are all that different,” King said. “I think sometimes the positions get hardened and that prevents us from focusing on the common interests.” — Reporter: 541-633-2160,

Fuqua Continued from A1 The division’s acting director also ordered that Fuqua’s president, Phillip R. Daniels, be disqualified from being licensed as a manufacturedstructure dealer or from working for such a company for five years. Neither Daniels nor an attorney representing him responded to requests for comment. In August, Daniels told a state employee that a flooring supplier had sued Fuqua and that all inventory at Fuqua’s Eugene and Coburg dealerships had been seized, according to the order, which states Fuqua has 60 days to appeal to the state Court of Appeals. The enforcement action represents only some of the complaints against Fuqua. The state Department of Justice received complaints from 15 people about Fuqua giving nothing for payments on homes or ignoring home defects. The complaints come from three states and one Canadian province. At least four lawsuits are pending against Fuqua, three in Deschutes County and one in Lane County circuit courts. One open lawsuit in Deschutes County Circuit Court against Fuqua seeks to make the company return about $29,000 to a couple in Christmas Valley who paid the money for a modular home.

‘Habitual disregard for the law’ Fuqua violated state laws, the order states, by giving customers excuses why their homes were not finished when employees knew the factory had been shut down. One customer was told incorrectly that the city of Bend was stalling on blueprints for a home. The company’s behavior amounted to “habitual disregard for the law,” in violation of a state administrative rule, the enforcement action states. The company operated in Bend since the early 1970s, according to The Bulletin’s archives. It ran a factory and retail operation off Boyd Acres Road in northeast Bend that once employed 330 people. It also operated the Eugene and Coburg dealerships, as well as a factory in Boonville, Mo.

The Fuqua Homes factory off Murray Road in Bend.

The Oregon facilities stopped operating in July, and the Missouri plant closed in February, according to the enforcement action. Edith Ziolkiewicz of Burnaby, British Columbia, wrote in a complaint to the Justice Department that in June 2010 she had paid a $12,500 down payment to Fuqua for a home in which she wanted to open a day care center. She talked with employees over the phone nearly every day for six or seven months and even drove 11 hours to Bend to visit the factory. Ziolkiewicz said Thursday she has not recouped the money. Delaying the opening of the day care center has cost her at least $50,000, not including the money she has had to pay to continue her mortgage, she said. “If I could just recover the deposit and just forget about this whole nightmare, it would be better than nothing,” Ziolkiewicz said. Michael Wolfgram of La Pine filed a complaint to the state Department of Justice. He called the home he purchased from Fuqua last year “just a disaster.” He said the roof, the blinds and other elements need replacing. Ronald Palm, of Sagle, Idaho, reported to the Justice Department that a customer at Independence Home Center, a dealership in nearby Sandpoint where he worked, had received nothing in exchange for a $42,000 down payment on a Fuqua home. Husband and wife Tim and Betty Hayes paid more than $24,000 in down payments

on a $144,000 modular home from Fuqua, according to a copy of the order for the home. The couple moved to Bend from Murrieta, Calif., in July after Fuqua employees had assured them a home would be ready for them by August, Tim Hayes told The Bulletin. In July, Fuqua agreed to return the couple’s money. But that hasn’t happened yet, Tim Hayes said Wednesday. This week, the Hayeses had a Bend lawyer send a letter to Fuqua demanding that it return their deposit. Husband and wife Darrell and Nona McDermott, who moved to a house near Prineville from Milwaukie in April, said they deposited $40,000 on a $99,000 Fuqua home the same day they visited the retail center in May. In July, they returned to the Bend retail center to see if they could still add a window to their order. As they watched, an employee called and left a message at the plant to check on the McDermotts’ home. He called the couple later and said employees had made the change just in time. They visited the plant a week later to see the home, but it wasn’t there. “In reality, the plant was permanently shut down,” the order states. Fuqua also agreed to give their money back. But the com-

pany has not yet delivered on the agreement, Darrell McDermott said. In May, Jeff Morris of Bend and his family paid in full — more than $160,000 — for a Fuqua home, he said. An employee told Morris and his wife, Angie, they would be able to move into the new home by Oct. 1. The day came and went with no new home for the couple. Fuqua sent an agreement in August to the Morris family, too. But they have not received any money, Morris said Wednesday. Jerry Kumre, who works at a California manufactured home dealer, said a customer had paid about $105,000 for a Fuqua home in April. But the customer has received nothing, and the company has not attempted to talk about a refund, he said. It was the first time the dealership, Sterling Homes in Santa Rosa, Calif., had done business with Fuqua, because the customer had specifically requested a Fuqua home, Kumre said. Fuqua employees told Kumre the company was being reorganized. Like most other sectors of the housing market, the manufactured home industry has struggled in recent years. Five manufactured home factories still operate in Oregon, down from about 10 just two or three years ago, said Don Miner, executive director of the Oregon Manufactured Housing Association. In the past 12 years, manufactured home production in the United States has fallen steadily, he said. In 1999, 348,000 units were built. As of October, 43,000 units have been built this year, Miner said. “There’s just not enough housing demand,” he said. — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

Continued from A1 Publicly expressing the private sentiments of others, Greg Maffei, the chief executive of Liberty Media, recently called the monthly cost of the media empire ESPN a “tax on every American household.” Patrick Flynn personifies the consumer challenge. He and his wife, who pay Comcast $170 a month for television, Internet and a home phone in Beaverton, Ore., are keenly aware that part of their bill benefits the sports leagues that charge networks ever-increasing amounts for the TV rights to games. Save for one regional sports channel, he said, none of them are worth it. “For the two or three games a year that our Washington Huskies are on ESPN, we can arrange for someone else to host the party,” he said. But there are also millions of viewers like Russell Tibbits, of Dallas, who says, “If you eliminate sports channels from cable packages, I literally would not own a TV.” Television and league executives argue that the vast majority of viewers not only want sports, but are, like Tibbits, willing to pay to watch a favorite team. On Sunday night, about 25 million people watched the New York Giants play the Dallas Cowboys on NBC — by far the highest-rated show on television for the night, more than tripling NBC’s average audience. ESPN, which broadcasts “Monday Night Football” and floods its week with football programming, is typically found by surveys to be the most valuable cable channel among subscribers. But ESPN is also far costlier than any other channel, earning about $4.69 a month for each cable and satellite household in the United States, according to the research firm SNL Kagan. Next year the firm expects ESPN to cross the $5 a month threshold for the first time. On Thursday, Hospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions

ESPN announced its latest rights deal, one that extends through 2024 with the NCAA. “Sports is hugely popular in America,” said Edwin Durso, an executive vice president for ESPN, “and I think the prices that we and others pay for programming clearly reflect that.” To date, the cable industry’s slight concessions toward the rising costs of sports have not amounted to much. Time Warner Cable offers a cheaper, smaller bundle of channels that lacks ESPN, but few have signed up. Both Time Warner and Cablevision have refused to carry the NFL’s own network, citing the high cost — 81 cents a month, according to SNL Kagan — but they have been harshly criticized by sports fans for it. Soon, though, there may be an Internet alternative — something that was heresy until recently. Distributors like Dish Network are talking to channel owners about creating virtual cable providers that would stream channels over the Internet instead of traditional cables. That would break up the bundle of channels that subscribers have grudgingly accepted for years and allow subscribers who don’t like sports to avoid paying for them. Even if such online providers materialize, the leagues and the entrenched TV networks are now locked into lucrative contracts for the long term. Wednesday’s NFL agreement doesn’t expire until the end of the 2022 season, which Brian Rolapp, NFL Media’s chief operating officer, said was a “recognition that the world will change and we don’t know what it will look like.” But the networks are betting that, no matter what television becomes, it will include a lot of football.

IN BRIEF Corzine again issues denial WASHINGTON — Former Sen. Jon Corzine, who presided over the collapse of commodities brokerage MF Global, returned to Capitol Hill on Thursday and denied he knew about loans the firm made using customers’ money. For the third time in a week, the New Jersey Democrat and former governor testified before lawmakers probing how an estimated $1.2 billion of customers’ money ended up missing. As he did in prior appearances, Corzine said he did not know. He also countered testimony that might have undermined that position.

Initial jobless claims fall Initial claims for unemployment insurance dropped to 366,000 last week, the lowest level since May 2008, in another sign that the job market is making a significant improvement. The new figures released Thursday by the Labor Department showed a drop of 19,000 initial claims from the previous week’s adjusted figure of 385,000. The fourweek average is 387,750 — below the 400,000 level that economists say is key to cutting into the unemployment rate.

Bend home prices at 6-year low By Tim Doran The Bulletin

The median price for a single-family home in Bend dropped last month to $166,000, the lowest in more than six years, according to the most recent report from the Bratton Appraisal Group. In Redmond, the median reached $123,000 in November, nearly 1 percent higher than October’s median price but about 5 percent lower than the $130,000 median reported in September. November’s median price in Bend fell $2,000 below the previous low, reached in December 2010, according to Bratton’s data, which comes from the multiple listing service with permission from the Central Oregon Association of Realtors. By contrast, Bend’s median price for a single-family home peaked at $396,000 in May 2007, according to the Bratton Report, which tracks the price from April

2005 to the present. It does not include townhomes, condominiums, manufactured homes or acreage. November’s median price reflected the second monthly decline, while September’s median reached $212,000 after two previous monthly increases. In the last three months, Bend’s median price has fluctuated by about $46,000, according to the report, which was released Tuesday. Over the past year, Redmond’s median price reached its high, $130,000, in September and the $100,000 low point in June, according to the report. In November, 122 singlefamily homes sold in Bend, while Redmond recorded 40 sales, according to the Bratton Report.

The race for the

greenest bottle By William Neuman New York Times News Service

Over their decades of competition, the battle between Coca-Cola and PepsiCo has taken on many colors — brown (cola), orange (juice), blue (sport drinks) and clear (water). Now, they are fighting over green: The beverage rivals are racing to become the first to produce a plastic soda bottle made entirely from plants. But despite dueling announcements

claiming technological breakthroughs, consumers should not expect to see many all-plant bottles on store shelves any time soon. Neither company is confident enough in the technology to say when, or even if, they will be able to deliver on their environmental ambitions. Coke delivered the latest volley on Thursday, saying it plans to work with three companies that are developing competing technologies to make plastic from

plants, with bottles rolling out to consumers in perhaps a few years. PepsiCo is aiming to beat that timeline and claim the 100 percent green label first. The company declared in March that it had cracked the code of the allplant plastic bottle, and on Thursday, it said that it was on schedule to conduct a test next year that involved producing 200,000 bottles made from plant-only plastic.

like Kinder Morgan and its competitors think the need for new energy sources means pipelines are a relatively low-risk way to play the boom. If they are right, Kinder Morgan will collect new tolls for decades, along with the ones it is already pocketing. See Pipeline / B6

Facebook, Greenpeace in truce over data centers The Associated Press NEW YORK — Facebook and Greenpeace have called a truce over a clean energy feud that had the environmental group using the social network’s own platform to campaign against it. GreenInside peace and • Facebook Facebook rolls out said ThursTimeline day that they redesign, will work B6 together to encourage the use of renewable energy instead of coal. Last year, Facebook opened a data center in Prineville, using Central Oregon’s cool nights and dry air to save energy while keeping its systems from overheating.

Zynga raises $1B in biggest Internet IPO since Google By Evelyn M. Rusli New York Times News Service

The virtual cow is the new cash cow of Wall Street. On Thursday, Zynga, the creator of social online games involving farms, poker tables and kingdoms, priced its initial public offering at $10 a share, at the top end of its expected range. The offering, which raised $1 billion, values the company at $7 billion. The highly anticipated public offering — the largest for a U.S. Internet company since Google — is a critical milestone for the social gaming industry, solidifying the legitimacy of a business model once mocked by investors. At $7 billion, Zynga rivals traditional gaming companies like Electronic Arts, which makes a lot of its money at brick-and-mortar stores. See Zynga / B5

Foreclosure filings dip as borrowers get holiday break By John Gittelsohn Bloomberg News

LOS ANGELES — Foreclosure filings fell last month as delinquent homeowners got a holiday break, RealtyTrac reported Thursday. A total of 224,394 properties received notices of default, auction or repossession, down 14 percent from a year earlier, the Irvine, Calif.-based data seller said in a report. One in 579 U.S. households got a filing, compared with one in 563 in October, a decline partly the result of a holiday eviction moratorium by mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, said RealtyTrac Chief Executive Officer James J. Saccacio. The U.S. housing market must digest more than 14 million distressed properties — 1.5 million homes in the foreclosure process, 3.5 million with delinquent mortgages and at least 10 million “underwater� properties, whose owners owe more than the homes are worth — before the foreclosure crisis will subside, according to RealtyTrac. “The python took a break — the pig is still in there,� Saccacio said in a telephone interview. While total filings declined in November, the number of scheduled foreclosure auctions reached a nine-month high, indicating that in early

2012 more homes will be seized by banks or offered as short sales, in which lenders agree to accept less than the balance of a mortgage, Saccacio said. The “first quarter typically is a better buying season, so you’ll see more of this inventory try to come to market,� he said. “I expect 2012 to look similar to 2011 in volume if nothing changes with government intervention or regulations.� Notices fell from November 2010, when banks and loan servicers began slowing the foreclosure process after complaints over the way they handled home-seizure documents. Attorneys general from all 50 states launched investigations of foreclosure actions a year ago and most of them remain in negotiations with the five largest mortgage servicers, including Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase. Nevada led the nation with the highest foreclosure rate for the 59th straight month even as foreclosure notices fell 43 percent from a year earlier, according to RealtyTrac. The decline came in the wake of a new state law requiring lenders to sign and publicly record affidavits of “key� information. One in 175 Nevada homes received a foreclosure filing in November, more than triple the U.S. average.

Marriott in deal to cut energy use at its hotels By Janet Morrissey New York Times News Service

Most hotel chains delayed significant energy conservation moves during the economic downturn, but now one, Marriott International, has signed a deal to reduce its hotels’ energy use, particularly during times of peak demand. Marriott will save on electric bills and also earn incentive payments from utilities as a reward for its efforts during peak periods, like heat waves, when utilities struggle to meet demand and often have to pay high prices to obtain electricity. But the success or failure of the program, the first involving a hotel chain, will be in how well it can make the cuts without affecting — or, more important, annoying — its customers. “It’s a very thin line — you have to be careful not to alienate your customers� when introducing cost-saving programs, said David Loeb, a senior analyst and managing director at Robert W. Baird & Co. Marriott signed the agreement with Constellation Energy last month and plans to adopt the energy-saving program at 264 of its hotels

in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic states and in Texas and California. The cuts in electricity use will vary by hotel, depending on the size, climate, geographical location and other factors. In general, hotels may use less air-conditioning in the hallways, dim the lighting in certain common areas, shut water fountains, rearrange cooling cycles and even close certain elevator banks. Also, certain hotels will reduce energy use in individual rooms that have not been booked, with infrared sensors and motion detectors flagging the central system when rooms are vacant. “We might move the room temperature to 78 degrees in an unrented room� rather than 72 in a rented room, said Douglas Rath, energy director for Marriott International in the Americas. In the past, Marriott has manually reduced power at certain times, but now specific cuts will be made automatically. The VirtuWatt energy management system from Constellation will work with the hotel’s property management system to track power use and automatically activate the cuts when utilities are

strained. In some cases, the program will reduce energy use in advance of an expected heat wave. “They’d run the chillers overnight and make sure the common areas are cooled down to, say, 67 degrees when normally they’d keep it at 72,� said Gary Fromer, senior vice president for demand response at Constellation Energy. “Then they would allow the temperature to slowly rise to 72 or 73 degrees during the window of time where you want to control the usage.� Constellation will cover about half the cost of installing the automated technology, but Rath said most hotels would break even on the investment within two years and generate at least 25 percent returns — and as much as 100 percent returns — by the end of the five-year agreement through the cost savings and the incentive payments. “In effect, the hotels act like a generator in the market, and a reduction in consumption is roughly the same as the addition of a new generator to the system,� Fromer said. “And so we pay them roughly what we would have paid a generator to produce the same amount of energy.�

‘Taxis of Tomorrow’ are tested on replica NYC avenue in desert

Passat, Elantra and Focus finalists for 2012 car of the year By Brent Snavely

By Phil Patton

An older taxi design is driven down a makeshift New York street at Nissan’s Arizona test facility where the “Taxi of Tomorrow” is being tested.

New York Times News Service

With foot-deep potholes, jagged pavement and rough cobblestones reminiscent of the rough-riding streets of the meatpacking district, the road is unmistakably New York — except for the road runners and coyotes. This is New York Avenue near Stanfield, Ariz., built by Nissan engineers on the company’s 3,050-acre proving ground to test and toughen the next generation of New York City taxicabs. In May, the Taxi and Limousine Commission chose the Nissan NV200 van as its Taxi of Tomorrow, which will be phased in as the city’s sole taxi model over five years starting in late 2013. The cab’s final design is still being worked out. “We created New York Avenue to mimic the rugged streets here,” Joe Castelli, the Nissan Americas vice president for light commercial vehicles, said in an interview during a visit to the city. The new taxi will have USB ports and power outlets for the electronic devices of passengers. The exterior will be painted a slightly brighter shade of yellow than the one on the city’s current taxi fleet. The NV200 was chosen over two other finalists, the Ford TransitConnect and a design by Karsan, a Turkish automobile manufacturer. Nissan is cooperating with the CooperHewitt National Design Museum and the Design Trust for Public Space on the final design and development. Castelli says that because the new taxi is based on a commercial vehicle it will get much more road testing — some 400,000 miles — than a typical passenger car would receive. Many of those miles will be on New York Avenue, a quartermile strip of nasty pavement at the company’s facility some 60 miles south of Phoenix. The site includes a 5.2-mile highspeed banked racing track and other features.

Put to the test Castelli said he visited the test ground last month. “Basically you go to Phoenix and turn right and head for the desert,” he said. The Nissan test facility already had special stretches for measuring ride problems like “freeway hop.” But New York City poses special problems, Castelli said, because it “has some of the worst streets and potholes.” He added, “We wanted to have uneven surfaces, because vehicles going around a corner have a tenden-

Senate panel OKs overhaul of U.S. auto safety laws David Shepardson The Detroit News

WASHINGTON — The Senate Commerce Committee this week approved an overhaul of the nation’s auto safety laws, including an increase in fines against manufacturers for delaying vehicle recalls. Approved Wednesday by a voice vote, the bill also would give states grants for banning texting behind the wheel or the use of cellphones by teen drivers. The measure also would fund more research efforts, including the development of in-vehicle interlocks to prevent an intoxicated driver from starting a vehicle. Under the bill, aimed at reforming the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the maximum fines for manufacturers that delay recalls would be hiked to $250 million from the current $17.35 million.

cy to slide a little bit from one pavement to another.” The extensive testing in Arizona is part of a wider development process, Castelli said. This fall, designers and executives met with medallion owners, driver operators and passengers. “We also do other kinds of testing,” Castelli said, like placing vehicles on four post machines that shake and twist them. “What is critical is the long-term durability of the vehicle.” Steve Monk, the director of vehicle testing at the proving ground, said: “There are a couple of things we are doing that are unique for the taxi. We have made several trips to the city, collecting data on road surfaces. We have looked at the drivers’ style — how aggressively they are accelerating and braking on different road surfaces. “We also want to understand operation cycles, like how many times a day a door is opened and closed and how many times someone slides across a seat over a two- or three-year period.” Nissan estimates that the cab’s rear sliding doors will be slammed shut 300,000 times during the vehicle’s street duty. Vehicles other than NV200 mules roll along New York Avenue, including banged-up examples of the city’s longreigning taxi, the Ford Crown Victoria, retired from taxi service. “It is a strange sight to see yellow taxis with the ad boards still on them running around the proving ground,” Monk said. Nissan bought several veteran Crown Vics to see how they had stood up to the rigors of regular use. “We want to use it a reference point,” he added.

was aware from driver surveys and examinations of cars it had put into taxi fleets that New York streets provided particularly rigorous conditions. “We were getting a few specific ride-comfort complaints from our existing passenger vehicles in the New York area, outside expectations,” he said. “The complaints stood out from the results anywhere else in the country. So we decided to replicate a section of New York at the proving ground.” Monk said the template for what became New York Avenue was a section of Guy R. Brewer Boulevard, a rugged commercial stretch north of Kennedy Airport named for a former local assemblyman. “Thankfully, I believe it was repaired afterwards,” he added. The Arizona facility also has a section that simulates Belgian block pavement and large ditches filled with water. The urban hazards in Arizona are spiced with natural ones. The potholes sometimes shelter di-

amondback rattlesnakes. “We get everything from scorpions, even in the office, to rattlesnakes in the spring,” Monk said. “Whole families of coyotes live here.” Nissan has not yet delivered any of the cabs it will provide under its 10-year contract with the city. But it is already using its taxi’s New York street cred as a selling point for the NV200. The company hopes to find customers beyond the 13,000-plus medallion holders in New York. Castelli said he had learned that two of India’s largest taxi companies had decided to use the NV200 because they heard it was being used in New York. “One of the ads we are running around the world shows a picture of the taxi on one side and the cargo van on the other. The line is, ‘If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.’ So two years ahead of it actually appearing on the streets, we are already marketing it on the New York nomenclature.”

Detroit Free Press

DETROIT — The Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and Volkswagen Passat are the finalists for the 2012 North American Car of the Year — an annual award by a group of 50 respected automotive journalists that is coveted by automotive manufacturers. The finalists were revealed Thursday at an Automotive Press Association luncheon in Detroit. “It’s a sign of the times: The car finalists are all about value and fuel-efficiency,” said Detroit Free Press auto critic Mark Phelan, who is one of the judges. “The Focus and Elantra offer lots of features at very affordable prices. VW seems to have hit

the right chord with the new Passat, which they developed with more room and a lower price to appeal to buyers in America and China.” Each car also represents a breakthrough for the respective automakers. The Focus is the first of many cars and crossovers Ford plans to introduce from a new global platform. The Elantra is among several new models from Hyundai that have been praised by auto critics and have helped the Korean automaker gain market share. The Passat, built at Volkswagen’s new plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., is a linchpin of the German automaker’s goal to become a larger player in the U.S.

Morgan Stanley to eliminate 1,600 jobs By Michael J. Moore Bloomberg News

NEW YORK — Morgan Stanley, the financial firm whose shares have declined 45 percent this year, plans to cut about 1,600 jobs amid an industrywide drop in revenue from investment banking and trading. Reductions will occur in the first quarter of 2012 at all levels of the firm, Mark Lake, a company spokesman, said in an interview Thursday. The figure amounts to about 2.6 percent of the 62,648 em-

Bottles Continued from B1 But until Pepsi conducts the test, executives said they would not be able to predict when large-scale production of such bottles might begin. If the test fails to prove that the technologies favored by Pepsi are cost-effective at a commercial scale, more experimentation will be needed, said Denise Lefebvre, the company’s vice president for global beverage packaging. “The test is very important in really determining efficient cost and manufacturing processes,” Lefebvre said. She said the company was still working out details of the test, including what products to sell in the all-plant bottles and what type of plant materials to use to produce them.

Hazy timelines Coke was the first out of the gate in the green bottle race, when in 2009 it began selling Dasani water in the United States in bottles made with up to 30 percent plant-based plastics. (In some cases, recycled plastic may decrease the plant-based amount.) On Thursday the company said that by 2020 all of its plastic bottles would meet the 30 percent plant-based standard. But the company was more cautious about when it could start selling beverages in bottles made entirely from plant

ployees New York-based Morgan Stanley had at the end of September. Chief Executive Officer James Gorman is grappling with Europe’s debt crisis and concern that U.S. economic growth will slow, reducing demand for trading and investment-banking services. Morgan Stanley’s revenue from those businesses dropped 36 percent in the third quarter from the previous three months, excluding accounting adjustments. The decision to reduce staff

comes as “we conduct our year-end performance-management process and evaluate the right size of the franchise for 2012,” Lake said. Financial firms have disclosed plans to eliminate more than 200,000 jobs globally this year in response to market turmoil, economic weakness and fallout from Europe’s sovereign debt crisis. Citigroup, the third-biggest U.S. bank, told regulators this week it may dismiss 413 employees in New York City as the firm starts eliminating

4,500 jobs. Morgan Stanley said in a June presentation it had begun a three-year cost-saving project that sought to eliminate $1 billion from annual expenses. The firm increased that target to $1.4 billion in October. Revenue from investment banking and trading at the 10 largest global firms fell 12 percent in the first nine months of this year, after a 23 percent decline in 2010, according to industry consultant Coalition Ltd.

materials. “We will set the target once we have the commercial technology in place,” said Scott Vitters, the general manager of Coke’s plant bottle packaging platform. One of Coke’s new partners, Virent, a Wisconsinbased biofuel and chemical company partly owned by Cargill, Shell and Honda, said it hoped to have a largescale plant to produce plastic for beverage bottles up and running in 2015. Vitters would say only that some commercial production of 100 percent plant-based plastic bottles was achievable “in the next few years.” The exception is Coke’s Odwalla juice brand, which already uses all plant-based material to make a type of plastic suitable for juices. The two other companies working with Coke to develop the all-plant soda bottles are Gevo and Avantium. Lefebvre said that Pepsi was following a similar path to the one Coke announced Thursday, teaming up with companies that are developing different ways of solving the plastic puzzle. But she declined to identify the partners.

weight, and is what Coke has been producing from plant sources, using sugarcane grown in Brazil. The other component, called PTA, makes up 70 percent of a bottle’s weight. Scientists have been able to make PTA from plant materials in the laboratory but pulling off the same trick on an industrial scale has proved more difficult. Vitters said that production capacity for MEG, used in the 30 percent plant bottle, was poised to increase drastically. The material is produced in only one facility today, but at least two additional factories are expected to begin production next year. Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist at the National Resources Defense Council, an environmental group, said that the production processes involved in creating plastics from plant sources generated smaller amounts of greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change, when compared with plastics made from petroleum. But he said the source of the plant materials was important in assessing the environmental impact. Hershkowitz said that using agricultural waste products, like corn stalks or other materials left over from farming, was better than using crops, such as sugarcane or corn that are grown specifically for plastic production.

Growing crops for plastic “causes a lot of land conversion, it affects the price of food, it uses a lot of fertilizers,” he said. Pepsi has said it will use agricultural waste products, such as corn husks, pine bark or orange peels, to make its plastic bottles. Vitters said that Coke might use a variety of materials, including wastes and crops grown for plastic production. Regardless of how they are produced, Hershkowitz said that plant-based plastics still create litter and solid waste problems. He said companies like Coke and Pepsi should endorse legislation that would require the food and consumer products industries to finance recycling operations, in order to greatly increase the amount of plastic recycled.

A cleaner process Soda bottles are made from a type of plastic known as PET, which commonly has two main components. One, called MEG, makes up about 30 percent of a bottle’s

Continued from B1 “This is a revolution,” said Lou Kerner, an analyst at Liquidnet, a brokerage firm, who has followed Zynga for years. “Social is revolutionizing the gaming industry, and it’s really the early days of a brandnew medium.” Founded in 2007, Zynga has emerged as the shining example of Gaming 2.0. Zynga attracts 222 million people each month on Facebook, making it the largest gaming company on the social network. A small fraction of users, less than 2 percent, pay money to populate their farms or build their cities in games like FarmVille and CityVille. But the virtual goods are generating real profits. Each day, players spend $3 million in Zynga’s economy. In the first nine months of the year, the company had earnings of $30.7 million, on revenue of $828.9 million. While estimates once put Zynga’s market value at nearly $20 billion, new investors are nonetheless paying a premium for the company. At $7 billion, it is set to start trading at seven times sales. By comparison, Electronic Arts, which makes the popular Madden NFL video game series, has a market value of $6.9 billion, putting its price at roughly two times sales. Investors are betting on the potential for profits.

A pioneering model Zynga embodies a confluence of trends in the gaming industry. Its whimsical games cater to casual users, who may not own a console like a PlayStation 3. Its games, which are available on Facebook and mobile devices, also use social networks to allow players to share activity with their friends. Led by the hard-charging Mark Pincus, a graduate of the Harvard Business School who spent his formative years on Wall Street, Zynga is often denounced by critics for its intense culture and for emulating rivals’ games. But many also credit Pincus as a pioneer for making a big bet on social gaming and the so-called freemium model, in which playing

Green intentions Both Coke and Pepsi have broad initiatives to make their operations more environmentally friendly, taking steps to cut back on factors such as water and energy use. But the companies played down the potential marketing benefits inherent in being the first to the market with an allplant bottle. “We don’t feel it’s a race,” Lefebvre said. “We feel like were all working together to do better for the environment and also to make good business sense.”


is free but players have the option to upgrade features by spending money. “Say what you will about Zynga. But Mark knew that free was the next big thing, and he went harder than anyone else,” said Gabriel Leydon, the founder of Addmired, another gaming startup. “He saw the trend way ahead of time, and he spent the most money.”

Uncertain market The company is going public at a volatile time for the initial public offerings. The market has been shaken by continuing credit fears and skepticism that the new darlings of technology can sustain their momentum. Groupon, the daily deal site that went public in early November, tumbled as low as $14.85 a share, well below its offering price, before bouncing back recently. Zynga’s long-term outlook is also mixed. Despite its popularity, the startup has struggled to find new catalysts to increase user adoption. The average number of monthly users has declined slightly since the first quarter. Then there is the Facebook issue. Analysts are concerned that Zynga, which derives nearly all its revenue from the social network, will not be successful at building out its independent platforms, particularly for mobile devices. Zynga has been an aggressive acquirer but has failed to persuade some mobile gaming companies to join its ranks. For instance, both PopCap and Rovio, the maker of Angry Birds, turned it down this year despite billion-dollar offers, according to people with knowledge of the matter. As social gaming evolves, many analysts say they believe that mobile is a must-win area. “Mark Pincus was one of the first who really saw the opportunity of virtual goods,” Kerner said. “But it’s not just about Facebook anymore; they have to figure out mobile, too.”

Wh ite House Facebook begins rolling out seeks wage ‘Timeline’ profile redesign protection for home care workers By Jenna Wortham

New York Times News Service

By Steven Greenhouse New York Times News Service

The Obama administration proposed regulations Thursday to give the nation’s nearly 2 million home care workers minimum wage and overtime protections. Those workers have long been exempted from coverage. Labor unions and advocates for low-wage workers have pushed for the changes, contending that the 37-yearold exemption improperly swept these workers, who care for many elderly and disabled Americans, into the same “companion” category as baby sitters. The administration’s move calls for home care aides to be protected under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the nation’s main wage and hour law. “They work hard and play by the rules,” President Barack Obama said. “Today’s action will ensure that these men and women get paid fairly for a service that a growing number of older Americans couldn’t live without.” These workers, according to industry figures, generally earn $8.50 to $12 an hour. Nearly 40 percent rely on public benefits like Medicaid and food stamps.

Remember those karaoke videos from three years ago that somehow wound up on Facebook? They were embarrassing for the few hours they spent at the top of your Facebook profile, and then they were buried under a cascade of updates. But Thursday, Facebook started rolling out a feature called Timeline that makes a user’s entire history of photos, links and other things shared on Facebook accessible with a single click. This may be the first moment that many of Facebook’s 800 million members realize just how many digital bread crumbs they have been leaving on the site — and on the Web in general. For better or worse, the new format is likely to bring back a lot of memories. But it

Facebook Continued from B1 It started a campaign to get the social network operator to use renewable energy. It attracted some 700,000 supporters on Facebook. Greenpeace said it was ending the campaign and declared victory on its “Unfriend Coal” Facebook page, which was still up Thursday morning. The page has more than 180,000 followers.

could also make it harder to shed past identities — something people growing up with Facebook might struggle with as they move from high school to college and from there to the working world. “There’s no act too small to record on your permanent record,” said Jonathan Zittrain, a law professor at Harvard who studies how the Internet affects society. “All of the mouse droppings that appear as we migrate around the Web will be saved.” The old Facebook profile page shows the most recent items users have posted, along with things like photos of them posted by others. But Timeline creates a scrapbooklike montage, assembling photos, links and updates for each month and year since they signed up for Facebook. When Mark Zuckerberg,

the founder and chief executive of Facebook, introduced Timeline in September at a developer conference, he described it as a way to get a more comprehensive portrait of someone than by simply reading updates or looking at a profile picture: “We think it’s an important next step to help tell the story of your life.” Facebook said in a blog post that users could either wait to receive a notification about Timeline on their pages or go to timeline to activate it immediately. Eventually all profiles will be switched to the new look, although the company is not saying when. And there will be no switching back. Some tech-savvy users have been able to reach Timeline for weeks using a workaround meant for developers.

Facebook says it will work with the group to promote clean, renewable energy and encourage other technology companies to do the same. The company said it will now state a “preference for access to clean and renewable energy” when choosing where to build its data centers. But it stopped short of saying it would only build on such sites. Clean energy has also been a big issue for Face-

book rival Google. The online search leader has been trying to prove that its business model is environmentally friendly and recently revealed exactly how much electricity it uses (2.3 kilowatt-hours of electricity last year, about the same as what 207,000 U.S. homes would use in a year). It has also invested nearly $1 billion in renewable energy projects such as wind farms and solar projects.

Pipeline Continued from B1 The nation’s 450,000 miles of transport pipelines provide a steady flow of profits, and big players like Kinder Morgan are geographically diversified, diluting the impact of a drilling slowdown in any one region. Transmission rates are set by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and do not vary with fluctuating oil and gas prices. A special federal tax break unavailable to most industries bolsters investors’ returns. And before a single mile of a new pipeline is built, the operator typically lines up contracts with oil and gas companies that commit them to use it, guaranteeing revenue in advance. Fed by such advantages, Kinder Morgan’s pipeline partnership yielded investors a 17.7 percent compound annual return from 2007 to 2010, compared with 3.5 percent for an index of large integrated oil companies, says IHS Herold, a consulting firm. “Kinder has made a low-return, humdrum business into a river of money,” said Robin West, chief executive of the consulting firm PFC Energy. “The North American energy scene is being transformed, and this company reflects the colossal scale of the emerging industry.”

Antitrust concerns Kinder Morgan’s proposed purchase of El Paso, announced in October, is so big that it faces months of antitrust scrutiny. The deal would create the largest pipeline owner in the country, with 80,000 miles of pipelines crossing 35 states and linking new oil and gas fields from Texas to Pennsylvania to most major markets. Though regulators would still set transport prices, the company would have more power to direct what flows through its pipes and where. “By restricting supplies or not expanding pipelines in the future, they are potentially going to keep natural gas from going to consumer markets where gas is needed, and that could impact prices indirectly,” said Ed Hirs, an economist at the University of Houston. Analysts say antitrust regulators may require Kinder to divest itself of some pipelines, particularly in and around Colorado, though most expect the deal to be approved eventually. Kinder and other Kinder officials declined interview requests. But Larry Pierce, a company vice president, denied in an email that his company would restrict gas flows. “Pipelines make money by providing transportation service, not by deciding where the gas goes,” he said.

“Kinder has made a low-return, humdrum business into a river of money. The North American energy scene is being transformed, and this company reflects the colossal scale of the emerging industry.” — Robin West, chief executive, PFC Energy

Work is under way on Kinder Morgan’s Rockies Express project, which runs 1,679 miles from Colorado to Eastern Ohio.

Pipeline demand The increased scale would certainly put Kinder Morgan in a prime position to benefit from a coming wave of pipeline construction. Thousands of miles of new pipelines will be needed to serve wells in fast-growing shale fields like the Bakken in North Dakota, the Eagle Ford in south Texas and the Niobrara in Colorado. In some states, pipeline capacity is so scarce that much of the natural gas coming from wells is simply burned as waste. All told, spending on new pipelines in the U.S. could reach more than $200 billion by 2035 (in 2010 dollars), according to the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America Foundation. “Rich Kinder likes to identify tsunamis,” said Yves Siegel, a senior energy analyst at Credit Suisse, “and this is a tsunami that he believes in.” If the El Paso deal was approved, analysts say, other big pipeline companies, like Williams Partners and Oneok, would need to scramble to keep up with the supersize Kinder Morgan, which would have easier access to capital and a far larger cash stream to buy or build the new networks. In acquiring El Paso, Kinder Morgan gets pipelines that are likely to deliver growing cash flows. El Paso’s 14,000mile Tennessee Gas Pipeline, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada, cuts directly through the Marcellus shale field in Pennsylvania, where hundreds of gas wells have been drilled but not yet

capital at a lower cost than normal corporations because they can offer investors higher after-tax returns. In the late 1980s, Congress tightened regulations on such partnerships out of concern that many corporations would turn to them to avoid corporate income taxes. But it carved out an exception for the energy industry, which lobbied hard on the issue. The number of these partnerships in the energy industry has increased to 72 in 2010 from six in 1994, according to the Congressional Research Service.

Easy money hooked up to a pipeline. Kinder would also acquire pipelines from West Texas to California that promise future growth as Southwestern states retire aging nuclear power plants in favor of gas-fired electrical generation.

Tax loopholes Environmentalists and advocates of renewable energy also say the pipeline industry gets an unfair advantage because of the estimated $2 billion a year in federal tax breaks it receives through use of a corporate structure known as the master limited partnership. Although Kinder didn’t invent the tax break, he has been a pioneer in using it. Kinder co-founded Kinder Morgan in 1997, after he had a falling-out with Enron’s chairman, Kenneth Lay, and bought Enron’s small pipeline business for $40 million with another Enron colleague. From that perch, Kinder, a lawyer by background, used the partnership structure to assemble a pipeline network. He owns more than a third of the company. Master limited partnerships trade on financial markets like stocks, but they are taxed as partnerships. That means the companies do not pay income taxes but instead pass through a share of profits and losses to the owners of the units, who then pay individual income taxes. The structure has allowed Kinder Morgan and other pipeline companies to secure

Annual rates of return on pipelines are generally around 7 percent, hardly spectacular in the oil business. But pipelines often pay for themselves in 10 years or so, and they can produce revenue for decades after that. “You can go to the movies and be making money,” said Mark Routt, a senior consultant at KBC Advanced Technologies. “You just sell the pipeline capacity over and over again.” But Nathanael Greene, director of renewable energy policy at the Natural Resources Defense Council, said the industry was so profitable that Congress should either repeal the tax break or allow renewable projects like solar and wind to use the partnership structure, too. Right now, he said, Congress is “picking winners in the worst sort of way because not only does it make things uneven now but locks in that advantage in a pipeline that lasts for decades.” Pierce, the Kinder Morgan executive, defended the partnership structure as a useful policy tool to help build pipelines. “Congress has made a conscious decision that the benefits of incremental energy infrastructure outweigh the slight decrease in federal revenue,” he wrote in an email. He said that extending master limited partnership treatment to renewable energy sources would be “sound policy, in our opinion.”

Prescription drug disposal offered Deschutes County residents can dispose of unwanted prescription drugs, over-the-counter medication or pet medication anonymously at a new medical return unit in Bend, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said. The unit is located at the sheriff’s office at 63333 W. U.S. Highway 20. Disposal is free. Residents are asked to keep the medicine in original containers and sealed tightly in a zip lock bag to prevent leakage. The sheriff’s office also recommends that people black out their personal information on any prescription labels. Needles, hydrogen peroxide, aerosol cans and inhalers will not be accepted. All medicine collected will be destroyed.

n 1914, the owner of a Portland steam bath business set out for La Pine, where he intended to stake a claim for land his family could eventually use as a summer retreat. Ed Deedon and his brother, Frank Deedon, traveled a couple of days by stage coach until they found free land northwest of La Pine. Nearly a century later, the cabins Ed Deedon and his family built are on their way to being nominated for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. Consultant Pat Kliewer received a state grant to work on the application and expects to finish by early March. The Deedons were one of many families that homesteaded in the area with the intention of living there only part of the year, when they would fish, hunt and enjoy the outdoors, according to Kliewer. Ed Deedon’s grandson, Crayton Rister, 69, of Portland, owns the homestead and still visits with other family members, including his 100-yearold mother and Deedon’s daughter, Marjorie Rister.

SUNRIVER — Plans to build a firefighter training facility in a residential neighborhood south of Sunriver were shelved Thursday, with the Sunriver Service District board voting unanimously to withdraw a land use application pending before Deschutes County. The service district, which oversees the Sunriver Fire Department, had applied for a conditional use permit that would allow it to build the training facility on a oneacre site at the intersection of Solar Drive and Covina Road. The facility would give Sunriver firefighters a place to practice their skills, potentially creating noise and smoke for residents of the neighborhood. The fire department currently does some limited burning for training purposes

Wayward mule still homeless By Dylan J. Darling

at its station inside Sunriver, but firefighters must travel to neighboring communities for the kind of training a dedicated facility would allow. Thursday, roughly 40 residents filled the meeting hall at the Sunriver Fire Station, with several expressing an interest in testifying against the project, but the meeting was cut short. Following a brief presentation from Sunriver Fire Chief Art Hatch, service district board member Jim Wilson proposed withdrawing the application with the county. Board member Bob Wrightson said that even if a suitable site were found, the service district has not identified a funding source for building a training facility, while Wilson noted the current proposal has “caused a great deal of grief for a good number of people.� See Sunriver / C2

20 rural post offices spared

The Bulletin

No saddle. No sign of an owner. And no direction home. That’s how Christine Smith found a mule late this summer on Holly Lane between highways 26 and 97 near Culver. “It was just walking down the road,� she said. Months later, the owner of the mule remains a mystery, said Tory Kurtz, spokeswoman for the Crooked River National Grassland. Now she said the U.S. Forest Service is looking for a permanent home for the mule, which is about 5 to 10 years old. After finding the mule, Smith said she let it into her nearby pasture next to her home on Holly Lane, thinking its owner might mosey by next and claim the animal. See Mule / C6

Twenty post offices in rural Oregon have been removed from a list of postal facilities under consideration for elimination, Sen. Jeff Merkley announced Thursday. Several Central Oregon post offices are among those that have been spared from closure, including facilities in Antelope, Brothers, Fort Rock, Paulina and Post. Another 21 Oregon post offices, including the location in the Sunriver Business Park, remain on the list and are being studied for possible closure. Tuesday, the Postal Service announced it will delay any decision on closing facilities still being studied until at least May 15. See Post offices / C5


Finding historic sites getting easier It will soon be easier for Deschutes County residents to find historic sites in unincorporated areas of the county. Volunteers have been photographing all of the properties on the county’s list of historic and cultural sites, as well as local places on the National Register of Historic Places. The county plans to post the photos, along with a list of the sites, on its website. Historical consultant Pat Kliewer and a group of volunteers began the project a year ago, but quickly realized they needed financial help because of the cost of gas to drive to all of the protected properties.

Continued from C1 Solar Drive resident Jeff Eorio said he was pleased by the decision. Opponents of the proposal were prepared to continue fighting against the training center for as long as necessary, he said, but seeing the service district respond to neighborhood concerns is a preferable outcome. “The need is there, the need for a training center is there, but we don’t see the need for a training center in a residential neighborhood. That’s the crux of it,” Eorio said. In his presentation, Hatch said there may be an opportunity to secure a site for a training facility east of Sunriver away from neighborhoods. Hatch reported that he recently met with Steve Runner, director of development for Sunriver Resort, to explore the possibility of constructing a training facility on land owned by the resort off Cottonwood Road, the northern entrance to Sunriver. The resort owns 350 acres surrounded by Deschutes National Forest land near a wastewater treatment pond, Hatch said, and it seems much more interested in crafting a deal to locate a training facility on the property than it has in past years.

Sites Continued from C1 Now, with a $2,500 state grant, volunteers will receive reimbursement for their mileage. “The people who are local here really want to know which properties are protected by the historic preservation code and which aren’t, because there’s a big misconception that just because a building is cool and old looking it’s protected,” Kliewer said. Owners of structures on the historic preservation list must obtain county approval before demolishing or altering the exterior of the buildings, and they must demonstrate the proposed changes will be compatible with the existing structure. Since 1997, properties can only be added to the historic preservation list with the owners’ consent, Kliewer said. The county’s Landmarks Commission votes on whether to designate districts, buildings and other sites as historic places. — Hillary Borrud, The Bulletin

Continued from C1 “I think he just saw something that said there were homesteads available down there, so that’s what he did,” Crayton Rister said of his grandfather. “My granddad loved to hunt and fish, so he’d go up there and do that.” In 1914, Ed and Frank Deedon claimed homesteads west of the Little Deschutes River and north of La Pine, according an application Kliewer prepared to get the job of assembling the national historic designation materials. The federal government granted Ed Deedon a homestead in 1918 after Deedon met the requirements of digging a well, building a cabin and living on the property for at least part of the year. Wildfires burned neighboring cabins, but the Ed and Genevieve homestead was left untouched. The family called it the “This’ll Dew Ranch,” and they traveled there each year by car, driving mostly on gravel and dirt roads. In addition to the primary one-story cabin, the Deedons have a one-room guest house called the “Tiltin’ Hilton,” which is so named because a tree fell onto the south side of the roof, according to Kliewer. Another building served as a boathouse and shop, and there

is an outhouse the family called “The Joneses,” a handdug water well and a handcrank water pump. The cabins have no running water, no bathrooms and are heated with wood stoves. “Talk about going back in time,” Kliewer said. “It’s really simple — and that’s why it’s important to preserve these.” The Deedon brothers felled trees on the property and used a team of horses to take the logs to Pringle Falls Mill, in order to get lumber. The lumber and shingles are mostly rough and of poor quality, and some still have bark on them, according to Kliewer. Ed Deedon also cut and notched the logs for the original cabin on his property. “Some of the typical La Pine area frugality, creative recycling and scavenging of building materials is evident in the variety of windows and doors,” Kliewer wrote in her initial application. When Kliewer completes the nomination materials, she will send them to the State Historic Preservation Office. The office might request additions and other changes before a state committee decides whether to forward the nomination to the National Park Service. “The National Register listing is another way to document it and get information out about the property,” said

Heritage Grants and Outreach Coordinator Kuri Gill, with the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department. A listing on the register could also help the property quality for federal tax incentives for rehabilitation work. Crayton Rister said the main cabin on the homestead is getting “kind of dilapidated.” “I’d like to fix it up the way it was when I was a kid,” Rister said. “When I was a kid, we’d go up there and spend several weeks at a time .... We had all that land that was kept posted, and we just used it for our private hunting reserve.”

Man accused in toy light saber assault PORTLAND — Portland police have disarmed a man accused of swinging a toy light saber at customers in a toy store, assaulting at least three of them. Sgt. Pete Simpson said officers found the man — still swinging the toy light saber — in the parking lot of a Toys R Us store Wednesday night. One officer tried to use a Taser but it was ineffective. A second officer made contact with his Taser but the man used the light saber to break one of the wires. Simpson said officers finally wrestled the struggling man to the ground as he yelled incoherently. The 33-year-old Hillsboro man was taken to an area hospital for a mental evaluation.

Shirt theft means deportation for teen PORTLAND — A Portland teen admits he was wrong to steal a shirt, but he’s fighting the consequences — deportation to Mexico. Gustavo Romero-Alvarez told KATU he has no memory of Mexico. He was brought to the United States illegally when he was 7 years old and is a senior at Centennial High School. Authorities discovered his undocumented immigration status after his arrest last year for the department store theft. Alvarez spent two months in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention. He is scheduled to be deported this week.

Senators introduce Rogue wilderness bill Oregon’s two senators have introduced a bill to add 60,000 acres of federal forest land to the Wild Rogue Wilderness. The bill was introduced Thursday by Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, who said enlarging the wilderness would help fish and wildlife, tourism and economic activity by protecting key species. The current wilderness lies along the Rogue River between the communities of Marial and Agness. The addition would extend wilderness protection against logging and development upriver to Grave Creek. That would cover the stretch of river known as the wild section, which is one of Oregon’s most popular whitewater rafting destinations. A similar bill is pending in the House.

Firefighters rescue deer from icy pond BANKS — Firefighters from Banks and Forest Grove rescued a deer stuck in a hole in the middle of a frozen pond. Firefighter Geoff McFarland told KGW an attempt to cross the ice with a rescue board Wednesday frightened the deer. So, firefighters launched a rescue boat and used it as an icebreaker to clear a channel for the deer to swim to shore. The deer rested on the bank for a few minutes and then disappeared in the timber. — From wire reports

Officer offered a friend $2,000 for killing, investigator testifies • Judge denies bail for the suspect in the shooting death of the sergeant’s estranged spouse The Associated Press OREGON CITY — A detective testified Thursday that an Oregon police sergeant offered $2,000 to a close friend to plot the death of the sergeant’s estranged spouse. Oregon City police Detective Brad Edwards testified at a bail hearing in the case of Susan Ellen Campbell, who was arrested on a murder charge in the death of Deborah Higbee Benton. Deborah Higbee Benton was the longtime partner of Lynn Benton, a Gladstone police officer who has undergone gender reassignment in recent years. Benton, who is currently on leave, had changed his name and gender designation to male, The Oregonian newspaper reported. Edwards testified that Campbell told investigators Benton offered her money to kill or find someone to kill Higbee Benton. The Oregonian has reported that Campbell had cared for Benton’s mother. Edwards testified that Campbell confessed to entering a beauty salon and shooting Higbee

Benton on May 28, expecting to be paid the $2,000. He said Higbee Benton sustained fractured ribs and apparent strangulation. Edwards testified Campbell told detectives she called Lynn Benton to say the shooting had not been fatal. “There were definitely signs that this was a passionate killing,” he said. Campbell’s defense attorney, Daniel Woram, asked the detective whether Benton had physically participated in the death, to which Edwards responded that it was “still an ongoing investigation.” According to the June indictment, Campbell allegedly was paid to participate in the

HILLSBORO — The Washington County sheriff’s office says deputies arrested a man and a woman who were seen taking packages that had been delivered at homes near Hillsboro. Deputies found several packages in their car Wednesday and arrested a 25-yearold Hillsboro man and a 26year-old Aloha woman on theft charges. The packages were similar to ones taken after they were dropped off on porches by UPS or FedEx delivery trucks. Hillsboro police also suspect the two of taking parcels in the city.

Suspect in slaying wed to ex-wife of victim, records show The Associated Press DAMASCUS — A man arrested in a Clackamas County slaying is married to the former wife of the victim, court records show. Jonathan David Waldorf, 34, was divorced from Stevanie Pico in 2007, and they were involved in a custody dispute earlier this year, The Oregonian reported. Pico’s husband, 29-year-old Marcos Andres Pico, was to be arraigned Thursday on a murder charge in Waldorf’s death. Pico is being held without bail. Waldorf was found late Tuesday dying in the driveway of his rented home in Damascus. Neighbors Jeff and Anna Bateman were awakened by a girl screaming that her stepfather had been attacked. They raced outside, called 911 and stayed with him until officers and paramedics arrived, but Waldorf died soon afterward. The medical examiner said Waldorf’s cause of death was “incisive wounds to the neck.” Investigators haven’t said what they think was the motive for the killing or released many details of the investigation. Deputies searched the place where Marcos Pico was staying and gathered evidence that provided cause to arrest him Wednesday, said Sgt. James Rhodes, Clackamas County sheriff’s office spokesman.

killing of Higbee Benton, but no conspirator was named. Benton has not been accused of a crime. She has hired a prominent lawyer, Pat Birmingham, of Lake Oswego, who said Thursday that he had no comment on the hearing. The Oregonian has reported that Benton, although presenting herself publicly as a woman in a high-profile job as a department public information officer, legally changed his middle name from Irene to Edward and listed his gender as male on a marriage license application in October 2010. A municipal judge performed a marriage ceremony

between Benton and Higbee Benton, the paper said. In Oregon, a marriage is valid only between a man and a woman, but the clerk’s office didn’t require documentation of gender, the paper said. Gladstone Police Chief Jim Pryde said in a statement that the city has done an internal investigation into allegations against the sergeant “unrelated to the criminal investigation regarding the murder of Debbie Higbee.” He said a due process hearing is scheduled Tuesday, but the city’s personnel policy forbids releasing details. Judge Kathie Steele denied Campbell’s bail request.

Bend councilors should support a water do-over


end city staff told us Thursday they are committed to doing another financial analysis to determine where the city’s water should come from.

Another study is not going to rouse enthusiasm from some critics, but it corrects a flaw in the city’s plan for its $68 million surface water project. Bend is going to grow. It’s going to need more water. It’s going to need that water to be clean. The need may be as great as 65 million gallons a day by 2030, about triple what it uses on a peak day today. The city has been working for years to determine the best way to make that happen. Right now, the city gets about half its water from wells and half its water from surface water from Bridge Creek, which feeds into Tumalo Creek. So the city must decide: more wells, more surface water or some combination. Because of clean-water regulations, the city must also make changes in filtration if it wants to continue to use surface water. The decision gets complicated. Assumptions must be made — about future population needs, construction costs, the cost of electricity. There are impacts on Tumalo Creek to consider. And there’s uncertainty about what the city can do under Oregon water law, a possible exemption or delay in complying with environmental regulations, and it looks like environmental regulations may change again in the next few years. The Bend City Council decided 6-1 about a year ago to move ahead

with a project to expand surface water at Bridge Creek. It also added hydroelectric generation. There were several components to the decision. Councilors and staff looked at environmental aspects and legal risks. And they also based the decision on a financial analysis. Any financial analysis projecting into the future is going to raise questions. Nobody is going to know, for instance, what the cost of electricity is going to be to pump wells in 2020, until 2020. The flagrant flaw in the financial analysis is who the city selected to do it. The city picked HDR Consulting to do the design for Bridge Creek. But after concerns were raised about the legitimacy of assumptions in a previous financial analysis, the city picked HDR to do a new one. That was picking somebody to do the analysis who had a multimillion-dollar stake in the outcome. City Manager Eric King said staff plans to ask councilors for the money — maybe $10,000 to $20,000 — to do the new estimate. He does not think HDR should be used this time. A new study does not mean that the city will drop what it’s planning. And a new study does not mean critics are going to swing ’round in support. But when the city is going to be hiking up water rates to raise $70 million, it needs an independent firm to evaluate the financials.

Give with caution G

ive, but do your homework. This is the time of year that charities live for, in some respects. According to the Charity Navigator website, charities it surveyed say they receive about 41 percent of all donations in the last few weeks of the year. There’s a down side to Americans’ December generosity, however, as Oregon’s attorney general, John Kroger, pointed out recently. For some, the gifts they give will go not to support worthy causes but to support those doing the fundraising. Charity Navigator, Kroger and others know that those who do their homework will assure that the gifts they give actually do what they expect. Kroger lends a hand each December by putting out a list of the 20 worst charities in Oregon, outfits that spend as little as 3.2 percent of what they raise on the causes they’re supporting. His office, by the way, says a good charity will give away at least 65 percent of what it collects; Charity Navigator points out that the most efficient charities give away at least 75 percent of what they take in.

Charity Navigator allows Web visitors to look up many of the charities in this country for free. It ranks them with a simple star system — four stars are great, three less so, and so on. It offers a donor’s guide, too, that helps make choosing good charities relatively simple. Key among its suggestions is this: Potential donors should do their homework before they write a check, making sure they know not only how much a charity gives away, but whether the good works it supports are actually doing what they say they do. And, it says, never give money in response to cold-call telephone solicitations. Getting to know potential gift recipients is vital, as Kroger’s list makes clear, meanwhile. Fully half of his list of the 20 worst have names that imply they’re working to help veterans or police and firefighters. No one wants to give money to a favorite cause only to discover that what the gift went to support was fundraisers’ salaries and fancy office space. Nor need they. A few minutes on the telephone, in person or on the Internet should provide enough information for informed, not merely emotional, decisions.

My Nickel’s Worth Bend team positives On Friday, Dec. 9, my wife, my mother and I were enjoying lunch at a Medford restaurant. While dining, a group of well-behaved, well-dressed young men and their adult leaders entered the restaurant. Several people, including myself, asked who this group was, who they represented? The reply was, “We’re the Bend basketball team and we’re here to play (North or South) Medford.� (I’m sorry I don’t remember which team it was.) I must say, so many people in that restaurant were in awe. Your team and its leaders made everybody in that restaurant proud. We see so much of the negative side of young men and so little of the positive side. It was such a pleasure to see young men and their adult leaders, nicely dressed and properly representing their community. Keep up the good work. It doesn’t matter who won the game. Your team made a great showing! Bill Morgan Grants Pass

Faith not a factor The question “How important is a candidate’s faith?� in the religion section of the paper on Dec. 10 was answered by two men who used their faiths to reply. Pastor Raymond Davis Jr., in “Candidates need a strong background,� writes, “[T]hose who would embrace office must have a passion for truth because the doing of politics is under the eyes of God.� He then goes on to make his case by quoting the Bible, the book of his belief system. He later states, “The importance of political candidates having strong religious background is an essentiality.�

Lama Chuck Stanford, in “It shouldn’t be the sole consideration,â€? is a bit more inclusive in his answer. He does say, “However, religion does provide us with a moral and ethical framework from which to make decisions.â€? Later he adds, “If we use the moral and ethical framework from our faith (whatever that faith may be) as a guide ....â€? These men seem to be under the illusion that only religion, or faith, leads to morality and ethics. Moreover, both of these men are forgetting that our nation is governed by the Constitution, not by any religious belief system. The Constitution states in Article VI that, â€œâ€Ś no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.â€? So, according to the supreme law of our land, the answer to the question “How important is a candidate’s faith?â€? should be, “Not one bit!â€? Michael T. McGinnis Madras

Buehler misrepresented In response to Jim Houser’s Dec. 5 letter to the editor, I appreciate his desire to encourage Oregonians to vote. However, Houser has either intentionally misrepresented Dr. Knute Buehler’s positions or, more likely, misunderstood his positions. You can read for yourself at www. Buehler has been clear and consistent about his desire to reform Oregon’s election laws. In addition to increasing the security of our vote by mail system and removing special interest money from elections, he advocates opening up our primary elections to all Oregonians, regardless of their party affiliation. This doesn’t sound like he is try-

ing to, as Houser’s letter suggests, “disenfranchise blocks of voters from submitting their ballots.� An open primary is exactly the opposite. It would include all eligible voters, an additional 450,000 people, in Oregon’s entire election process. As a nonaffiliated voter, whose taxes help pay for our primary elections, I am thrilled by the prospect of actually voting in them. But, is it really too much to make sure only Oregonians are voting in our elections? Shouldn’t we all want secure elections and citizens who have absolute confidence in the system? Buehler is a brilliant surgeon. As one of his patients, I can speak from experience. He is a caring doctor and an intelligent individual. Oregon is lucky to have someone of his caliber running for statewide office. We would be even luckier to have him as our next secretary of state. Les Stiles Bend

Impeach Kitzhaber Susan Shirley has it exactly, unequivocally, inarguably right, and my sympathy goes to her for her family’s loss. Kitzhaber should be ashamed of himself for failing to disclose to the voters prior to the very close election that put him back in office that he did not intend to uphold or enforce the laws of the state of Oregon. Is not such a cowardly act as his arbitrarily deciding there will be no executions while he is in office adequate grounds for impeachment or recall? I think so. I wonder what other laws we have in effect that he has decided to ignore? The man was a poor governor his first go-round and he doesn’t appear to have improved a bit. Jerry Wright Sisters

NWF, government make cattle-raising land unusable By Carroll F. Asbell onsider this scenario: Your forefathers set aside land to benefit you and the generations to come. A portion of this land is rented by a tenant who found the arrangement beneficial until an undesirable element moved into the neighborhood and disrupted the tenant’s business to the point that he lost money. His solution: sell his lease to a third party. However, the third party was not interested in the commercial aspects of the lease; its goal was to arrange for government officials to rezone your property as a park, thus benefiting the newly arrived undesirable element, all to your detriment. The deal was cut, the land is removed from use and the thieves are moving on to greater robberies! Preposterous! A tale without any


credibility! What planet did you come from? Actually planet Earth – the United States, to be exact – and the “tale� is true, and worse than that, it has far-reaching implications for our future when considered rationally. Here are the facts: For 28 years Rick Jarrett held a grazing lease in Montana’s Gallatin National Forest and profited from the benefit derived from paying to graze his cattle on the public land. The benefit and the profit disappeared for Jarrett a dozen years ago when the expanding wolf population acquired a taste for feasting on easily killed calves and cows. In 2008, Jarrett sought a way out. Faced with the increasing cost of providing free wolf feed while paying lease fees for grazing land that was home to an ever-increasing pack of freeloaders devouring any potential profit he

IN MY VIEW might derive from his cattle, Jarrett caved in. The long-held Jarrett grazing rights were a value that was the envy of many less fortunate cattlemen who might want to gamble on mitigating the wolf predation by taking steps that Jarrett didn’t consider worthy. However, the National Wildlife Federation had developed a program that was the golden parachute for Rick Jarrett. The program was simple: The NWF would pay Mr. Jarrett $50,000 to give up his grazing permit. What a deal! Jarrett gets fifty big ones and the lease ground is available to another cattleman who will pay the fees for the grazing rights. No! No! That is not the whole deal!

The retirement of the grazing allotment by Jarrett has a side deal that the NWF cut with the Forest Service that not only removes Jarrett from the land but also precludes any other potential fee payer from the land, as the allotment has now been declared a permanent wildlife sanctuary. That, incidentally, means a sanctuary for wolves to procreate without restrictions, expand into the adjacent allotments and cause more land at risk for cattle-raising, thus potential targets for the buyout accepted by Jarrett. Fewer cattle, less grazing fees, more sanctuary, and more wolves assure less private grazing land safe to raise cattle profitably. What a brilliant scheme! A yearby-year tenant derives a handsome profit from selling the use of land he does not own, a third party that has

no independent rights to the land causes the government agency responsible for the public trust land to remove that land from a fee-producing status and thus causes the potential of adjacent land to be diminished. What planet do you come from? Good question. We live in a country where the narrow interests of the National Wildlife Federation, assisted by our government officials, is dedicated to removing from public use 600,000 acres of prime cattle-raising land, our land, to accommodate wildlife. This theft assures no cattle will graze this land, no minerals extracted, no petroleum sought, no timber cut, no income derived, and incidentally, no jobs or beefsteaks produced. Where are we headed? That is up to you and your voting decisions. — Carroll F. Asbell lives in Prineville.

Christopher Hitchens, 62, was an irreverent author and essayist By Hillel Italie


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Christopher Hitchens, the author, essayist and polemicist who waged verbal and occasional physical battle on behalf of causes left and right and wrote the provocative bestseller “God is Not Great,� died Thursday night after a long battle with cancer. He was 62. Hitchens’ death was announced in a statement from Conde Nast, publisher of Vanity Fair magazine. The statement says he died Thursday night at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston of pneumonia, a complication of his esophageal cancer A most engaged, prolific and public intellectual who enjoyed his drink (enough “to kill or stun the average mule�) and cigarettes, he announced in June 2010 that he was be-

ing treated for cancer of the esophagus and canceled a tour for his memoir “Hitch-22.� Hitchens, a frequent television commentator and a contributor to Vanity Fair, Slate and other publications, had become a popular author in 2007 thanks to “God is Not Great,� a manifesto for atheists that defied a recent trend of religious works. Cancer humbled but did not mellow him. Even after his diagnosis, his columns appeared weekly, savaging the royal family or reveling in the death of Osama bin Laden. “I love the imagery of struggle,� he wrote about his illness in an August 2010 essay in Vanity Fair. “I sometimes wish I were suffering in a good cause, or risking my life for the good of others, instead of just being a


gravely endangered patient.� Eloquent and intemperate, bawdy and urbane, he was an acknowledged contrarian and contradiction — half-Christian, half-Jewish and fully non-believing; a native of England who settled in America; a former Trotskyite who backed the Iraq war and supported George W. Bush. But his passions remained constant and enemies of his youth, from Henry Kissinger to Mother Teresa, remained hated. He was a militant humanist who believed in pluralism and racial justice and freedom of speech, big cities and fine art and the willingness to stand the consequences. He was smacked in the rear by thenBritish Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and beaten up in Beirut. He once submitted to waterboarding to prove that it was indeed torture.

SEATTLE — Doctors were unable to reattach a Washington state security guard’s ear after a shoplifter attacked him with a hatchet, the guard’s brother said Thursday. Police in the southwest Washington city of Longview arrested Adrian Kramer, 31, and booked him in county jail on Wednesday for investigation of assault, robbery, burglary and theft after the attack at a Fred Meyer retail store. When David Morrison, 33, the head of security at the store, tried to stop Kramer on Monday, Kramer swung a small hatchet at Morrison and sliced off his left ear, authorities said. Kramer then fled. Acting on a tip, Longview Police officers arrested Kramer in nearby Kelso, said Capt. Robert Huhta.

Post offices Continued from C1 Merkley, D-Ore., called the removal of 20 post offices from the list “a tremendous victory,� in a news release, and vowed to continue fighting the closure of the remaining 21. Postal Service spokesman Peter Haas said details as to why individual offices were removed from the list are not readily available. A letter from the Postal Service provided by Merkley’s office said if the offices were closed, “inclement topography, lack of local connecting roads and absence of opportunity for alternate access do not allow for reasonable customer access at this time.� Approximately 3,700 post offices around the country have been studied or are being studied for possible closure to help address the Postal Service’s financial difficulties. A sharp decline in firstclass mail and a congressional directive for the Postal Service to prepay $5.5 billion to cover health care for postal retirees have been cited as the primary factors behind the budget squeeze. Haas said as in Oregon, several post offices in other states have removed from the list of facilities that could be closed next year, though he was unable to provide precise figures. “Frankly, we knew going

David Morrison’s brother, Steven, said doctors in a Portland hospital weren’t able to reattach the ear after hours of surgery. He said his brother was weighing his medical options, including a prosthetic ear. “There’s a lot of shock and a lot of denial,� Steven Morrison said. “He’s happy the guy who committed the crime was apprehended and nobody else was injured as a result of a violent behavior.� Steven Morrison said his brother is an Army veteran who had become the head of security at the store in 2010. He’s married with four children. He’s “looking for closure and time to heal,� Morrison said, later adding that his brother had expected people to use weapons in his line of work, but he “never expected it to be a hatchet.� Kramer’s bail was set at $250,000 on Thursday.

“We knew going in that not every one of these was going to have a closure. That’s why we studied them.� — Peter Haas, U.S. Postal Service spokesman

in that not every one of these was going to have a closure. That’s why we studied them,� he said. “It’s required that we study them and get public input, and the process was to see if it’s feasible.� This week’s announcements do not affect the potential closure of a mail processing center in Bend. A meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Dec. 27 at The Riverhouse where the public can provide input to the Postal Service on that proposal. According to a Postal Service study, closing the processing center would save $2.1 million a year while eliminating 17 jobs and slowing mail delivery by approximately one day. In October, Merkley introduced the Protecting Rural Post Offices Act, which would prohibit the closing of post offices more than 10 miles from another postal facility. The bill is before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. — Reporter: 541-383-0387,

Johnnie William Richardson 1929-2011 Johnnie W. Richardson born on January 14, 1929 in Tenant, a small logging community in Northern California, to parents, John Woodcock and Gertrude Noble Richardson. They soon moved to Lakeview, OR to pursue cattle ranching, where Johnnie attended elementary school on the Eastside and Westside. At one time, he drove a horse and sleigh, picking up neighbor kids as a young ‘school bus’ driver for the one-room school. He attended and graduated from Lakeview High School and played football in the first game he ever saw. He lettered all four years, played in the first East-West Shrine game in Portland. After WWII with a full scholarship, he attended Oregon State College. It was at OSU that he met his future wife, Norma Adele Kennedy. They were married on February 19, 1950, at Trinity Episcopal Church in Bend and made their first home in Valley Falls, OR. It was to this union that Nancy Elizabeth and John Chester joined the family. Madras, Oregon became their home in late 1950, to work for Chet and Eleanor Kennedy, Norma’s parents, who were in poor health. In 1957, they bought the livestock and equipment with Norma’s brother. After buying him out in 1962, they purchased the ranch land and raised cattle until 1972 when TB was detected in the cow herd and were forced to dispose of the entire herd. During his cattleman years, Johnnie was very active in Jefferson County livestock and Oregon Cattlemen’s Assn. He was President, Cattleman of the Year, and Father of the Year for Jefferson Co. and active in the Trout Creek Soil Conservation Service. A new pursuit was soon formed with the agate business since the ranch had always been coveted by “Rockhounds�, but considered a nuisance. An article in the Lapidary Journal announced that people would be allowed to “dig� on a fee basis, for groups, reservations and weekends only. With so much interest, it was soon opened every day. Also during this phase, the Richardson’s raised game birds for their shooting preserve. In 1974, a small rock shop was built and in 1976, the famous Priday Thunderegg Beds which adjoined the Richardson property, were purchased. In 1980, Johnnie, Norma, and son, John Chester formed the Richardson’s Recreational Ranch Partnership. Johnnie was baptized with his daughter, Nancy, at St. Peter’s Cross Keys in 1952, later St. Peter’s became St. Mark’s in Madras. He joined the Masonic Lodge and Shriners, and was very active with Jobs Daughters, Demolay and Eastern Star. He was Associate Guardian of Jobs, Dad advisor of Demolay and twice Associate Patron of Eastern Star. He also organized dances for teens every Saturday during the summer with Demolay. He led the Lyle Gap 4-H Club and was weigh master for the 4-H County Fair livestock for 20 years. Young people were a great passion and he loved being associated with their activities. He was lovingly called “Johnnie Baby� by his Jobs. Playing Bridge was a passion for both Johnnie and Norma. They were often accused of carrying a card table and four chairs in the trunk of their car. Johnnie is survived by Norma, his wife of 62 years; daughter Nancy Hall (Dave) of Helena, MT, and son, John Chester (Bonnie) at the home ranch; and brother, Edward of Lakeview, OR; seven grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents. Johnnie passed away Dec. 11, 2011, at home with his family present. After nearly 5 years of 3-day a week kidney dialysis in Redmond, he considered the staff at the Fresenius Medical Center, his second family. No funeral service is planned at his request. Contributions are suggested to the Shriners Hospital For Children in Portland, OR.

But she said it’s usually a horse, and that this was the first mule to be found roaming alone. Hopeful that the mule might have been misplaced rather than set loose, she put up posters with her picture in Madras and Prineville. The mule is a dark brown female with white sock-like markings on her hind legs. Smith said it has saddle marks showing it was a pack mule and appears to have gone lame, walking with a limp.

Hawks’ Crawford joining Portland

’Tis the season: A guide to the bowl games

PORTLAND— Freeagent guard Jamal Crawford has joined the Portland Trail Blazers. Crawford, who was reportedly considering Sacramento and the Blazers, announced his choice on Twitter, posting “Rip city!!!” The Blazers made it official a few hours later on Thursday when they announced they had signed Crawford. The terms of the two-year deal were not released. In order to make a deal with Crawford, the team used the NBA’s new amnesty clause to waive All-Star guard Brandon Roy, who announced his retirement last week because of ongoing knee problems. The Blazers also on Thursday agreed to terms with free-agent forward Craig Smith, known as “The Rhino,” who played with the Los Angeles Clippers for the past two seasons. An 11-year veteran, Crawford played for the Atlanta Hawks the past two seasons. For his career, the 31-year-old has averaged 15.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists. He won the NBA’s Sixth Man award in 2010. “We’ve thought highly of Jamal for a long time and think he’s a great fit for our team,” said Chad Buchanan, Portland’s acting general manager. “He brings a scorer’s touch and veteran leadership that will help us immediately.” By using amnesty to waive Roy, the Blazers freed up salary cap space that allowed the team to use a mid-level exception on Crawford. Roy, who was under a max contract, was set to make $15 million this year. “Brandon’s announcement that he is leaving the game ultimately shifted our decision to amnesty,” Buchanan said in a statement. “We’re given the immediate option to obtain additional salary cap flexibility as we will no longer be in the Luxury Tax — something that is critical to improving our team and helping us recover from the loss of a player of Brandon’s caliber.” The Blazers also announced that forward LaMarcus Aldridge had been cleared to return to non-contact practice starting on Saturday. Aldridge underwent a procedure last Friday to treat Wolff-ParkinsonWhite Syndrome, a condition which causes the ventricles of the heart to contract prematurely.

Like it or not, the BCS championship game will be a rematch between LSU and Alabama. Oklahoma State complained it should have had a shot at the topranked Tigers, BCS bashers had more fodder for the we-need-a-playoff debate

• A capsule look at every bowl game, D5

and many fans scrunched up their noses at the thought of another field goalkicking contest like the previous incarnation of the Game of the Century. The good news, particularly if you’re

in the no-rematch camp, is that there are 34 other bowl games with some great players, great matchups and even some interesting nicknames, starting with that rascally Honey Badger in the Bayou. Here’s a rundown of some of the things to look for over the next month or so:

Competitors drop from the starting gate while competing in the 2010 Dirksen Derby at Mount Bachelor.


Off to the races • The Dirksen Derby, a popular Central Oregon snowboarding event, returns for its fifth year at Mount Bachelor this weekend MARK MORICAL


esigned as a fun, laid-back event, the Dirksen Derby Snowboard Rally Race brings local snowboarders together to raise money for Tyler Eklund, a Bend teenager who was paralyzed from the neck down in a snowboarding accident in 2007. Now in its fifth year, the derby has found its way onto the calendar of some of the sport’s top professionals. Perhaps proof that the event has arrived was its recent mention in the action sports section of “We try to be official,” jokes Josh Dirksen, a pro boarder from Bend who founded the derby four years ago with one main goal — raising funds to help pay Eklund’s medical bills. “It’s not too big of a snowboard world. I think a lot of people have had some good memories (from competing in the derby) over the years and always want to come back. A lot of pro snowboard-

ers are warming up for the season. I try to attract the top pros and get them out here.” The Dirksen Derby — open to all snowboarders for an entry fee of $25 — is scheduled for this Saturday and Sunday at Mt. Bachelor ski area near the Pine Marten chairlift. Racing in seven different divisions will send boarders two at a time down parallel courses that include banked turns, jumps and other features. Then they switch courses and race again. The competition is based on a racer’s combined time of the two runs. Dirksen, 35, says the event has changed locations on Bachelor each year, and he tries to keep some of the features a secret until the race starts. “It’s fun to surprise people,” he says. The Dirksen Derby has always been organized as a preseason event, designed to get local snowboarders excited about the new season. Lack of snow has never really been an issue and should not be this weekend, even though Bachelor reported a modest base of just 32 inches on Thursday. See Derby / D6

Dirksen Derby What: Fifth annual Dirksen Derby Snowboard Rally Race, a timed snowboarding race with banked turns, obstacles, jumps and other features Where: At Mt. Bachelor ski area near the Pine Marten chairlift When: Qualifying races (for men’s and splitboard divisions) this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; finals this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (practice from 9 to 10 a.m. each day) Who: Divisions include Men’s and Women’s (1449), Derby Elites (previous top-three finish), Groms (13 and younger), Older and Wiser (50ish), Sit-ski, and Splitboard (must hike up) Registration:, or at Bachelor’s West Village Lodge Saturday and Sunday from 7 to 10 a.m. Cost: $25, with discounted lift tickets available

avid Stern faces the same problem as the commissioner of every other pro sports league operating in North America, save the NFL. He’s got too many lousy teams — or if you prefer, not enough superstars to go around — and a labor deal that handcuffs him from trying to do anything about it. So give the NBA boss an ‘A’ for effort by maneuvering Chris Paul to the Clippers for the sake of competitive balance. But also recognize the deal for what it was: a raging conflict-of-interest that could come back to haunt him soon enough. Trading on his second job as proxy owner of the leagueowned New Orleans Hornets, Stern nixed a trade that would have sent Paul to the Lakers and claimed he got a better one when the Clippers jumped in. Maybe so. The real consequences of the swap won’t be known at least until next year’s draft picks have played a sizeable chunk of the season, but this much we already know: Stern pulled the rug out from under the Lakers, and didn’t do the Rockets and Celtics any favors. The only way this qualifies as competitive is by making more teams bad. The move makes the Clippers as good as they’ve ever been, maybe even competitive in the crowded Los Angeles market. Paul drove the Lakers crazy last season in the Western Conference playoffs while carrying a Hornets team barely half as talented as the one he’ll join with the Clippers. See Commish / D4

Mountain View rallies to defeat Sandy, 45-32 By Beau Eastes The Bulletin

Jamal Crawford

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL Oregon State rolls past Howard Three players score at least 20 points for the Beavers, led by 22 from Ahmad Starks, D2

With just one senior back from last year’s state tournament squad, Mountain View is not likely to blow anyone out this season, at least while the team is still feeling out its offense. The Cougars can take all the time they want discovering who their playmakers are, though, if they continue to play great team defense. Mountain View snapped a two-game losing streak Thursday, rallying to defeat visiting Sandy 45-32 in nonconference girls basketball action. The Cougars (3-3), who trailed 17-9 at the end of the first quarter, held the Pioneers to just 15 points the rest of the game.

Inside • More prep sports coverage, D3

“Yeah, we’re young,” said Cougar coach Steve Riper. “But the kids play hard and they’re buying into playing good team defense. … You hold a team to 10 points in the second half and you’re going to have a good chance to win.” Junior forward Ciera Waldrup led Mountain View with nine points and Kylie Durre and Megan McCadden added six points apiece, but Thursday’s victory stemmed mainly from the Cougars’ defensive play, especially in the second half.

Three Beavers score at least 20, OSU rolls past Howard The Associated Press CORVALLIS — Ahmad Starks scored 22 points and Angus Brandt added 21, both career highs, to lead Oregon State to a 93-72 win against Howard Thursday night. Roberto Nelson added 20 points and eight rebounds for Oregon State (8-2), off to its best start since the 1984-85 team opened 8-1. It was the first time in seven years that three players had 20 or more points in a game for the Beavers. “It was great, just to get a rhythm out there. Get stuff going,” said Starks, who also had four assists and three steals. “Everybody was in a flow tonight and that’s what we want.”

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said, “If we can have that kind of production with the kind of defense we’re playing, that makes a coach sleep easier at night.” Brandon Ford and Prince Okoroh had 13 points apiece for Howard (3-8). Starks, a sophomore, scored eight points in a 19-4 run that put Oregon State ahead 37-18 with 5:09 left in the half. Brandt, a junior from Australia, matched Starks’ 14 first-half points as the Beavers led 49-30. Oregon State led by as many as 36 points in the second half and the Bi-

son got no closer than 17. The Beavers, who are 6-1 at home this season, have two more nonconference games before Pac-12 play begins. “I think we’re right where we should be and probably a little ahead of schedule,” said Jared Cunningham, who had 10 points, six assists and three steals for the Beavers. “We put in the work and the effort in the offseason and it’s showing right now.” Oregon State shot 31 of 60 from the floor while Howard was 24 of 61. Howard had a 38-37 rebounding edge.

The Beavers have scored 90 or more points four times already, their best performance since the 1991-92 season. One reason credited is their move to primarily man-to-man defense from the 1-3-1 zone Robinson’s teams played in his first three seasons with the Beavers. On Thursday, Oregon State held Howard’s starting five to a combined 12 of 34 from the floor. The Beavers turned 19 Bison turnovers into 21 points. “I’m just really pleased with the way we came out and played defense and we never stopped,” Robinson said. “Our defense has turned into our identity and it’s really fun. The team aspect of our defense, it’s a treat

for me to watch.” Also on Thursday: No. 10 Missouri. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 104 Kennesaw State . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 67 COLUMBIA, Mo. — Ricardo Ratliffe and Michael Dixon had 18 points each and Missouri shot 60 percent from the field.

Basketball • Magic’s Howard says trade request still stands: Orlando center Dwight Howard says the trade request he made last week still stands and that he spoke to Magic general manager Otis Smith on Thursday. But he said what they talked about will remain between them. Howard can become a free agent in July 2012. Smith has previously given Dallas, New Jersey and Los Angeles permission to talk to Howard’s agent about possible trades. • Fourth man accuses exSyracuse coach of sexual abuse: A 56-year-old New York prison inmate says former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine began molesting him more than 40 years ago and continued to have sexual contact with him into adulthood. Floyd VanHooser told The Associated Press during a prison interview Thursday that Fine began sexually abusing him when VanHooser was 14 years old. As an adult, the contact included sex acts for money. VanHooser is the fourth man to accuse Fine of sexual abuse. He initially made his allegations to the Post-Standard of Syracuse. Fine was fired Nov. 27 after a 36-year career at Syracuse after three men said he molested them when they were boys.

Golf • Westwood shoots 60 in Thailand: Lee Westwood shot a career-best 12-under 60 Thursday to lead the Thailand Golf Championship by five strokes over John Daly. The Englishman reached the turn in 29 and finished his first round with 10 birdies and an eagle for a course record at the Amata Spring Country Club. Daly shot a 65 for second place. • Poulter leads Australian Masters: England’s Ian Poulter birdied the final two holes for a 3-under 68 and a two-stroke lead today after the second round of the Australian Masters. Poulter, also the first-round leader, had a 9-under 133 total at Victoria Golf Club. Australia’s Matthew Giles was second after a 68. Top-ranked Luke Donald was 3 under after a 70. • U.S. teen Thompson leads in Dubai: American teenager Lexi Thompson has taken a two-shot lead after the second round of the Dubai Ladies Masters in United Arab Emirates. The 16-year-old Thompson, who is the youngest LPGA Tour winner, strung together six birdies on her way to a bogey-free 6-under 66 Thursday and a 136 total. Swedish veteran Sophie Gustafson (67) and Margherita Rigon (68) were two shots back. Michelle Wie is four shots behind after a 67. • Lyle, Alliss selected for World Golf Hall of Fame: Twotime major champion Sandy Lyle of Scotland and British commentator Peter Alliss have been selected for the World Golf Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2012. Lyle was elected through the international ballot after winning 29 tournaments worldwide, including the 1985 British Open and the 1988 Masters. He was the first British winner at Augusta. Alliss, who won 23 tournaments as a player before becoming a commentator in 1961, was picked for the Lifetime Achievement category.

Football • Bears WR Hurd facing federal drug charges: Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd was in federal custody Thursday, charged with trying to set up a drug-dealing network after authorities arrested him with a kilogram of cocaine during a sting. Hurd was arrested Wednesday night after meeting with an undercover agent at a Chicago restaurant, according to a criminal complaint that says the player was first identified as a potential drug dealer over the summer as the NFL lockout was coming to an end. Hurd told the agent that he was interested in buying five to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week to distribute in the Chicago area, the complaint said. • Prosecutors drop charge against Patriots’ Edelman: Prosecutors on Thursday dropped an indecent assault and battery charge against New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman, saying evidence suggests he just briefly grabbed the hand of a woman who accused him of groping her. Edelman, 25, was accused of grabbing the woman’s crotch after reaching under her costume during a Halloween party at a Boston nightclub. On Thursday, pros-

ecutors said they decided to drop the charge after reviewing video surveillance and witness statements and interviewing the woman several times. • PSU requests more time from NCAA: With a Friday deadline looming, the NCAA signaled it would give Penn State more time to respond to its inquiry over the university’s handling of child sex abuse accusations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Penn State general counsel Cynthia Baldwin said in a letter to NCAA president Mark Emmert released Thursday that answers to the NCAA’s questions about the Sandusky case might come from other, separate probes already in progress. Among them is a university trustees investigation spearheaded by former FBI director Louis Freeh. • Playoff backers start national campaign: Proponents of a college football playoff are launching a new national campaign aimed at taking down the BCS. The “We Want a Playoff Now” campaign was introduced Thursday on Capitol Hill. It includes the lobbying firm The Moffett Group, headed up by former Rep. Toby Moffett, DConn., and the communications firm, New Partners. Along with that effort, two congressmen are forming the Congressional Collegiate Sports Caucus. The congressmen, Texas Republican Joe Barton and Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen, are reintroducing Barton’s 2009 bill aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system. The longshot bill would ban — as unfair and deceptive — the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I football game as a national championship unless it’s the outcome of a playoff.

Motor sports • IndyCar: Racing surface a factor in Vegas wreck: Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s “limitless” racing surface was singled out Thursday as a significant factor in a “perfect storm” of conditions that led to the death of two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon. Wheldon was killed Oct. 16 during the series’ season finale when his car sailed 325 feet through the air into a catchfence, and his head hit a post in the fence. The blow created a “non-survivable injury.” In the wake of the 15car wreck, many criticized CEO Randy Bernard and IndyCar for creating a deadly mix of circumstances — offering a jobless Wheldon the chance to earn a $5 million bonus if he could drive from the back of a 34-car field to Victory Lane on a high-banked oval, where a field of mixed experience levels had enough room to race three-wide at over 220 mph.

Volleyball • UCLA, Illinois advance to NCAA final: Senior outside hitter Colleen Ward had 27 kills and Illinois advanced to its first championship match in school history, upsetting USC in five sets in the NCAA semifinals Thursday night in San Antonio. The Illini (32-4) will face UCLA in Saturday’s championship after the Bruins swept Florida State in the other semifinal. UCLA (29-6) advanced to the title match for the first time since 1994 and will be going for the school’s fourth championship.

Winter sports • Kwan makes Figure Skating Hall of Fame: To her nine U.S. and five world championships, Michelle Kwan can now add the title of Hall of Famer. The most decorated figure skater in American history, Kwan was elected to the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame on Thursday, the only selection for the class of 2012. That seems fitting considering how Kwan soared above the competition during her career. Kwan had an amazing career, winning 43 championships, including eight straight national titles.

Baseball • Willingham, Twins agree on deal: The Minnesota Twins welcomed Josh Willingham to the team on Thursday, a move that had many bracing for a wave goodbye to Michael Cuddyer. Willingham agreed to a $21 million, three-year contract, giving the Twins a player with strikingly similar offensive numbers to Cuddyer’s over the past six seasons. Adding Willingham, a right-handed hitting outfielder to help balance out a lefty-heavy lineup, would help ease the sting if Cuddyer doesn’t return. — From wire reports



Falcons handle Jags easily, 41-14 By Paul Newberry The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Ho hum, another winning season for the Atlanta Falcons. That’s not such a big deal anymore. This team has much higher goals. Putting together their most complete effort of the season, the Falcons clinched a fourth straight winning record with a 41-14 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night. Matt Ryan had another big game, throwing three touchdown passes in less than three quarters of work, and John Abraham terrorized rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert with 3½ sacks. Atlanta (9-5) strengthened its hold on an NFC wild card, shrugging off the immediate accomplishment of another above-.500 finish. “Our expectations are much higher than winning seasons,”

coach Mike Smith said. “I’m glad we’ve been able to accomplish that as an organization and a football team. But believe me, it’s not one of those expectations we really want to talk about. If we’re where we think

we are as an organization and a football team, that’s expected each and every year.” This one was over by halftime. Atlanta led 27-0 when the teams trotted to the locker room, Gabbert and the

shellshocked Jaguars (4-10) saddled with a net passing total of minus-1 yard. Atlanta stretched out its lead to 41-0 before Jacksonville scored on a blocked punt. Going back to the previous week, when the Falcons overcame a 16-point halftime deficit at Carolina, they ripped off 65 points in a row over five quarters. “I feel like we’ve hit our stride,” said Roddy White, who had 10 catches for 135 yards and became just the eighth receiver in NFL history with 80 receptions and 1,000 yards in five straight seasons. Ryan was 19 of 26 for 224 yards and three touchdowns, with a season-high rating of 137.3. White caught two of the scoring passes, Julio Jones the other. Gabbert was 12 of 22 for 141 yards, also throwing an interception during a truly awful night full of bad decisions.


La Pine wrestling wins double dual meet Bulletin staff report LA PINE — The advantages of wrestling at home may be a myth, but it mattered to La Pine on Thursday night. The Hawks dispatched Class 4A opponents Elmira, 54-24, and Sisters, 76-6, in a double dual meet to notch their first wins at home in the young season. “The kids were pretty excited,” La Pine coach Gary Slater said. “They stepped up (tonight). They were very consistent.” Three Hawks wrestlers had particularly productive nights, pinning their respective opponents from the Falcons and Outlaws. At 220 pounds, La Pine’s Josh Van Cleave pinned Elmira’s Zane Wandwell and Sisters’ Hayden Jones both in the first period. Kyle Contreras gave the Hawks a lift at 195 pounds with first-period pins of Elmira’s Matt Engholm and Sisters’ Austin Morlan, and Deion Mock won by fall over Elmira’s Dakota Utter and Sisters’ Josh O’Brien at the 145-pound classification. Thorin Wilson (106 pounds), Zach Knabe (126), Joseph Swayze (152 pounds), and Eli Allen (160) each won contested matches to further boost La Pine. “The kids wrestled really well,” Slater said. “Overall, it was a really good team effort.” The Hawks will participate in the Adrian Irwin Memorial Tournament at Mountain View High School today and Saturday.

Continued from D1 Fiesta Bowl, Stanford vs. Oklahoma State, Jan. 2, Glendale, Ariz. — If the national championship game were to have an undercard, this could be it. Two great offenses, two great quarterbacks in Andrew Luck and Brandon Weeden — expect lots of yards and points in what has the potential to be the most entertaining bowl of them all. Rose Bowl, Wisconsin vs. Oregon, Jan. 2, Pasadena, Calif. — Speaking of shows, how about Badgers running back Montee Ball and Ducks dynamo LaMichael James trading jukes and touchdowns? Going to be some day on the couch the day after New Year’s. Alamo Bowl, Baylor vs. Washington, Dec. 29, San Antonio, Texas — Robert Griffin III on one side, Keith Price and Chris Polk on the other, not a lot of defense. Yeah, this is going to be good. Cotton Bowl, Arkansas vs. Kansas State, Jan. 6, Arlington, Texas — Arkansas’ two losses were to LSU and Alabama, K-State’s to the two big Oklahoma schools. All you need to know.

Flyers notch seventh straight win but lose captain for rest of season The Associated Press MONTREAL — The Philadelphia Flyers’ latest victory celebration was met with a jolt of bad news. Andrei Meszaros scored 8:08 into the third, Mathieu Carle had three assists and Philadelphia extended its winning streak to seven with a 4-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Maxime Talbot, Harry Zolnierczyk and Wayne Simmonds also scored for the Flyers in the victory tempered by news that captain Chris Pronger will miss the rest of the regular season and playoffs because of severe post-concussion syndrome. “I think the hard part — at the end of the day — to swallow is that he’s been shut down for an extended period of time,” said Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette, who learned the news just before the game. “Where there was hope, right now there’s not.” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren made the announcement through a team spokesman early in the first period. Most of the players learned the news from reporters after the game. “Obviously, that’s devastating, to say the least,” Scott Hartnell said. “He’s a presence. That’s the best thing I can say about him. He’s a presence in the room, he’s a presence on the ice, and he was a big factor in our run a couple of years ago. And when he’s in the lineup he really brings a lot of intangibles a lot of guys can’t bring, so obviously we’re upset about it and I’ll give him a call when we get out of here.” Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots for Philadelphia, which blew 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 leads in the second period. “We’re a resilient bunch and when we dig ourselves holes like that we know what we have to do to get back in games,” said Simmonds, who scored for a fourth straight game 18:10 into the second. “We have a never-say-die attitude and we’re never going to give up, ever.” Philadelphia has won nine of 10 and is first overall in the Eastern Conference with 43 points, two ahead of Boston and a point behind Minnesota for the overall NHL lead. Erik Cole scored the Canadiens’ third tying goal of the period with 15.5 seconds. Louis Leblanc got his first NHL goal and David Desharnais also scored earlier in the second for Montreal, which lost in regulation for the first time in seven games (3-1-3).

Players to watch

Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin

Mountain View’s Maddy Booster (2) drives the ball past Sandy’s Molly Nutt (5) during the first quarter of Thursday night’s game in Bend.

Mountain View Continued from D1 After going into halftime tied 2222, Mountain View outscored Sandy 33-10 the rest of the game, holding the Pioneers to just four field goals after the break. “The second half we gave better support,” said Durre, who led the Cougars with six steals. “And we boxed out better. That first half we got killed by offensive rebounds.” Sandy forward Tammy Joseph led all scorers with 19 points, but only six came in the second half. “Our goal as a team is to hold our opponents under 38 points,” Riper said. “We were a little worried after they got 17 after the first quarter, but then we buckled down.” Mountain View took control of the game midway through the third quarter. Trailing 26-23, McCadden scored four consecutive points to give the Cougars a 27-26 lead. Mikayla Cant and Hannah Johnson each hit a three-

Commish Continued from D1 Emerging star Blake Griffin is a perfect complement — the duo has already been dubbed “Stockton and Malone 2.0” — and if the partnership lasts half as long, a title for one of the most clueless franchises in any league is within the realm of possibility. That the Clippers got so much better at the expense of the Lakers will only make the rivalry edgier. This assumes that the team on the other side of town will react the way it always does, but it’s been a very un-Laker-like few days. It began with Stern blocking the deal that would have moved Lamar Odom to New Orleans and Pau Gasol to Houston in exchange for Paul, while the Rockets would have sent Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic, and a firstround draft choice to New Orleans. Facing the prospect of an unhappy Odom, the Lakers inexplicably pulled the trigger on a deal shipping him to Dallas for next to nothing. It was little surprise when Kobe Bryant complained, another thing when Phil Jackson weighed in from retirement. Besides, it leaves the Lakers with the prospect of a grumpy Gasol and no easy choices to retool a lineup that looked old and out-of-sorts at the end of last season. But the collateral damage in the Paul deal wasn’t limited to the Lakers. The Celtics had their eyes on David West while the trade carousel was still spinning and the Rockets, who were also harboring hopes of plying Nene away, are left scrambling to fill their front line. Instead of contenders, both now will be marginal playoff qualifiers. The sooner Stern gets out of the ownership business, the better. We saw baseball commissioner Bud Selig wearing two hats — for part of his tenure, he remained owner of the Milwaukee Brewers — and remember how that worked out. Certainly, Stern may have made the Clippers much better and the Hornets more attractive to a buyer in the short run. But like Selig, he can’t do anything about competitive balance without real NFL-style salary caps and revenue-sharing agreements. That was clear when the agents for a few of his marquee players began investigating deals even before the ink was dry on the latest collective bargaining agreement. “It’s been a lot of fun,” Stern said, referring to his stint playing fantasy

pointer in the final three minutes of the quarter, giving Mountain View a 33-28 advantage heading into the final period. The Cougars cruised in the fourth quarter, outscoring Sandy 12-4. Mountain View sealed the win by ending the game on a 10-2 run. Junior guard Maddy Booster added five points and five assists for the Cougars, who play Mountain View of Vancouver, Wash., Saturday at 2:45 p.m. at Summit High. The Cougars are across town Saturday because of the Adrian Irwin Memorial wrestling tournament at Mountain View this weekend. “Right now we don’t really have a go-to scorer, but everyone on the team can score,” said Durre, the team’s lone senior, about her teammates, nine of whom scored Thursday. “It makes us hard to defend.” “This team never gives up and plays hard,” Durre added. “If we do that, we’ve always got a chance.” — Reporter: 541-383-0305,

Clippers welcome Chris Paul to L.A. LOS ANGELES — Chris Paul endured two weeks of sleepless nights, stressful days and at least one imploded trade before he found a new home with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Pacific Ocean looked awfully peaceful to the superstar point guard on Thursday when he finally left the New Orleans Hornets for life on the West Coast, and now CP3 can’t wait to start turning Staples Center’s longtime second-class citizens into the greatest show in Hollywood. The Clippers’ bold new acquisition spent the day at their Playa Vista training complex, trying on his new No. 3 jersey after meeting with Blake Griffin and the rest of the players who can’t wait to catch the four-time All-Star’s passes. “This is not my day, by the way. This is the Clippers’ day,” Paul told an overflowing media crowd. “This is a humbling experience, and I’m so grateful and thankful to be here.” A day earlier, the Clippers acquired Paul in a four-player trade with the Hornets, outmaneuvering the Lakers and several other suitors for the player widely considered the NBA’s best point guard. Paul, who averaged 18.7 points and 9.8 assists last season, realizes his move is a stunning endorsement of the long-struggling Clippers, who have been overshadowed by the 16-time champions for three decades in Southern California. “I believe in this organization,” Paul said. “I believe in the players here, and I want to win. I want to win now. I’m so tired of doing everything else. I want to play.” What Paul doesn’t know about the Clippers doesn’t appear to hurt him. He repeatedly referred to the Clippers’ history as a selling point as he joined a 41-year-old franchise with no championships, no division titles, one winning season in the past 19 years and just one playoff series victory since 1976. — The Associated Press

Robert Griffin III, Baylor. The Heisman Trophy? You may have heard of it — and him. Andrew Luck, Stanford. The Cardinal quarterback is the fourth player to be Heisman runner-up in consecutive seasons, a threat to pass or run, the likely No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Tyrann Mathieu, LSU. The Honey Badger has a knack for coming up with big plays at big moments. Now he gets his chance on the big stage. Case Keenum, Houston. The sixth-year senior will leave Houston with his own section in the NCAA record book. Being relegated to the TicketCity Bowl against Penn State after a lateseason loss will likely have him motivated to go out with a big game. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State. The All-American is just the second two-time winner of the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation’s top receiver, and a big-play threat every touch. Trent Richardson, Alabama. The Crimson Tide’s running back won the Doak Walker Award as the nation’s best running back and was third in Heisman voting. Montee Ball, Wisconsin. Montee should have a ball at the Rose Bowl. LaMichael James, Oregon. Give him a seam and he’s gone; a likely Heisman finalist for the second straight season if that elbow hadn’t kept popping out of place.

Bowl sponsors After a run of dot-coms, foodrelated companies have been kings of the bowl-game sponsorships recently, and this year is no different with seven: Tostitos, Beef O’Brady’s, Chick-fil-A, Outback, Little Caesars Pizza, Kraft Fight Hunger and Famous Idaho Potato. OK, so Fight Hunger is more of a cause and the Idaho bowl is sponsored by a spud commission, but this is a loosely based count. Financial companies are right behind with six and the automotive industry pulls in with five. There are also sponsorships from a helicopter company, an aerospace and defense contractor, a department store, a moving company, one that sells blank Tshirts and sweatshirts that can later be screened and a ticket broker.

Nicknames Every team has players with nicknames. Here’s some of the coolest we could find: Honey Badger, LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu. He reportedly didn’t like the ode to the furry and ferocious little beast at first, but it has grown on him. RG3, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. Combination of initials and being the third in a line of Robert Griffins sounds like a cool new line of shoes. Wolf Man, Utah running back John White. Has a tattoo of a wolf on his chest because wolves roll in packs and eat meat to the bone. Sharks, Oklahoma’s defensive backs. Pulled from a Lil Wayne song, quite catchy. Zeus, Alabama’s Dont’a Hightower. A mythologically proportioned linebacker at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds. Moose, Stanford offensive lineman Jonathan Martin. Protector of Andrew Luck’s blindside got the moniker after mauling other kids in Pop Warner. Nuke, Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Had a preference for Nuk (pronounced Nuke) pacifiers when he was little and would

spit out any other brand. Somehow still cool. Shug, LSU running back Michael Ford. A name given to him by his grandmother.

Odds Based on the close game they played the first time around, it’s no wonder the BCS championship game between LSU and Alabama had the closest odds among the 35 bowls, opening at 1 point on the Glantz-Culver line and a pick ’em as of Tuesday. Next closest was 1½ points: Arkansas State over Northern Illinois in the Bowl and Auburn over Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. The biggest spread? Oklahoma at plus-14 over Iowa in the Insight Bowl. Highest over/under is 74½ points between Oklahoma State and Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl.

Distances Last bowl season, several teams had the chance to play in their home cities, including SMU, which played the Armed Forces Bowl in its own stadium because TCU’s was being renovated. This year, there won’t be any so-called home games, but there are several teams that won’t have to go very far: LSU in the BCS title game (it’s in New Orleans), Texas A&M in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Houston, Florida State at the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, and Rutgers in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium. Western Michigan also is playing in Detroit, Louisiana-Lafayette in New Orleans, Vanderbilt in Memphis, Tenn., and N.C. State in Charlotte. The longest trip will be Southern Mississippi in the Hawaii Bowl, a distance of (we’re ballparking here) 4,200 miles. Longest kids-in-the-car trip? Illinois at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, a distance of just over 2,100 miles. That’s roughly 31 hours with long, horizon-rarely-changes sections through the Midwest and Nevada, so good luck if you try that one.

Numbers 8—Wins in Texas this season by Baylor, which plays in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. 13—Straight seasons Oklahoma has gone to a bowl game. 22.67—Points Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III is responsible for per game. 41—Years since LouisianaLafayette last played in a bowl game. The Ragin’ Cajuns face San Diego State in the New Orleans Bowl. 91—Solo tackles by Tulsa linebacker Curnelius Arnick, most of any player in a bowl game and third in the nation. 599—Yards of offense averaged by Houston, best in the nation. 986—Over/under on the number of times TV announcers say Urban Meyer’s name during the Gator Bowl between his former team, Florida, and his new one, Ohio State. 1,037—Combined yards averaged by Fiesta Bowl foes Oklahoma State and Stanford during the regular season.

Absentee coaches Every bowl season there are a handful of teams that play under interim coaches because the head coach has either been fired or moved on to another job. This year seems to have an avalanche of absenteeism. Arkansas State. Hugh Freeze is headed for Mississippi, leaving the Red Wolves to play under running backs coach David Gunn against Northern Illinois in the Bowl. Southern Mississippi. Coach Larry Fedora is leaving for North Carolina. Fedora will coach the 22nd-ranked Golden Eagles a final time in the Hawaii Bowl. Arizona State. Dennis Erickson was fired after five seasons, but will still coach the Sun Devils in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State. Houston. Kevin Sumlin led the Cougars to the brink of a BCS bowl berth and became a hot commodity in the coaching market. He landed just down the road at Texas A&M, leaving Houston to play for interim coach Tony Levine in the TicketCity Bowl UCLA. Rick Neuheisel was allowed to coach the Bruins in the Pac-12 Championship game after being fired, but O-coordinator Mike Johnson will run the show in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Illinois. UCLA won’t be the only team in the Fight Hunger Bowl with an interim coach. The Illini will be under the guidance of defensive coordinator Vic Koenning after Ron Zook got the hook following a six-game losing streak. Maybe should have stepped in to sponsor this one.




Breaking down the bowls, from New Mexico to BCS Like a smorgasbord, the bowl season is upon us. And like a smorgasbord, not all the football is good but, hey, at least there’s a lot of it. So, while you’re decking the halls, shopping in the malls and making holiday calls, it will be hard to forget there’s also a lot of football. Here’s a rundown of the 35 postseason matchups (all times PST):

Temple (8-4) vs. Wyoming (8-4) Where: Albuquerque When: Dec. 17, 11 a.m./ESPN The buzz: Wyoming is one of the better bounce-back stories in the nation, as the Cowboys were 3-9 last season. Temple’s Steve Addazio is one of 12 first-year coaches to have led to his team to a bowl. The pick: Temple 23-20

Boise State (11-1) vs. Arizona State (6-6) Where: Las Vegas When: Dec. 22, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Had Dan Goodale made a 39-yard field goal on the final play of the game against TCU, Boise State would be unbeaten and likely getting ready for the national title game. Alas, for the second season in a row, a Boise kicker missed a field goal at the end of a game and Boise again is relegated to the Las Vegas Bowl. The pick: Boise State 38-17

California (7-5) vs. Texas (7-5) Where: San Diego When: Dec. 28, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: A Texas loss would give the Longhorns their 13th loss in the past two seasons; that would be the worst two-season span since 1988 and ’89. Cal has won eight of its past 11 bowl games, including a 5-2 record under coach Jeff Tedford. The pick: California 24-17

Iowa (7-5) vs. Oklahoma (9-3) Where: Tempe, Ariz. When: Dec. 30, 7 p.m./ESPN The buzz: There is some pressure on Oklahoma in this one; the Sooners began the season ranked No. 1, and a loss could mean finishing outside the Top 25. Of note: Sooners WR Ryan Broyles was lost for the season in the ninth game and QB Landry Jones hasn’t thrown a TD pass since Broyles was injured. The pick: Oklahoma 31-24

Houston (12-1) vs. Penn State (9-3) Where: Dallas When: Jan. 2, 9 a.m./ESPNU The buzz: Houston was excruciatingly close to getting a BCS bid. This will be just the ninth power-conference opponent for record-setting Cougars QB Case Keenum. You can’t blame Penn State players for wanting this season to be over. Will either team be focused? The pick: Houston 31-28


Florida State (8-4) vs. Notre Dame (8-4) Where: Orlando When: Dec. 29, 2:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Florida State opened the season in the top 10, but a loss to the Irish means the Seminoles will finish outside the top 25. The Irish have won their past two bowl games, but that is on the heels of a ninegame bowl losing streak. The pick: Notre Dame 27-23


Nebraska (9-3) vs. South Carolina (10-2) Where: Orlando When: Jan. 2, 10 a.m./ESPN The buzz: This is just South Carolina’s second 10-win season ever, and the Gamecocks never have won 11 games. Both want to win with the run and a stout defense. Which defense breaks first? The pick: South Carolina 24-20



Baylor (9-3) vs. Washington (7-5) Where: San Antonio When: Dec. 29, 6 p.m./ESPN The buzz: This almost certainly will be the final college game for Heisman winner Robert Griffin III, who heads an explosive Baylor offense. Washington also is good offensively, and both defenses ... well, to put it succinctly, both defenses reek. The pick: Baylor 45-31

Georgia Tech (8-4) vs. Utah (7-5) Where: El Paso, Texas When: Dec. 31, 11 a.m./CBS The buzz: $5 says this will be the only bowl that lasts less than three hours. Neither team can throw it, so expect a ton of runs and a quick game. The pick: Georgia Tech 28-20

Florida (6-6) vs. Ohio State (6-6) Where: Jacksonville When: Jan. 2, 10 a.m./ESPN2 The buzz: The Urban Meyer storyline likely overshadows what will occur on the field. Truth is, neither team is that good, and Ohio State comes in on a three-game losing streak. The pick: Ohio State 20-16



Cincinnati (9-3) vs. Vanderbilt (6-6) Where: Memphis When: Dec. 31, 12:30 p.m./ABC The buzz: A tale of two schools. Cincinnati ties for the Big East title and gets sent to the Liberty Bowl, which doesn’t make a lot of Bearcats happy. Vandy goes 2-6 in the SEC, good for fifth place in the SEC East, and gets sent to the Liberty Bowl and the Commodores are ecstatic. The pick: Cincinnati 28-21

Georgia (10-3) vs. Michigan State (10-3) Where: Tampa When: Jan. 2, 10 a.m./ABC The buzz: The SEC title-game loser vs. the Big Ten title-game loser, so there is going to be some crowing by the winning conference after this one. These teams met in the Capital One Bowl after the 2008 season, and the Bulldogs won 24-12. The pick: Georgia 24-17

Kraft Fight Hunger Illinois (6-6) vs. UCLA (6-7) Where: San Francisco When: Dec. 31, 12:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Can you feel the excitement and buzz surrounding this one? ... Hmmm, me neither. As far as we can tell, this is the first bowl ever where both coaches were fired beforehand. The pick: Illinois 21-16

Arkansas (10-2) vs. Kansas State (10-2) Where: Arlington, Texas When: Jan. 6, 5 p.m./Fox The buzz: This is K-State’s 15th bowl all-time and Bill Snyder has been the coach for 13 of them. Postseason football doesn’t seem to agree with Arkansas: The Hogs are 3-13 in bowls in the past 25 seasons. The pick: Arkansas 34-24


BBVA Compass

Auburn (7-5) vs. Virginia (8-4) Where: Atlanta When: Dec. 31, 4:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: In case you forgot, Auburn won the national title last season. That sure seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it? The pick: Virginia 23-20

Pittsburgh (6-6) vs. SMU (7-5) Where: Birmingham, Ala. When: Jan. 7, 10 a.m./ESPN The buzz: The NFL playoffs start this day. Why do we think there will be far more attention focused on those games than this one? The pick: Pitt 23-17

Famous Idaho Potato Ohio (9-4) vs. Utah State (7-5) Where: Boise, Idaho When: Dec. 17, 2:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: This is Utah State’s first bowl appearance since 1997, when John L. Smith was coach. (Smith was named coach at FCS member Weber State last week.) Ohio lost on a last-play field goal in the MAC title game. The pick: Ohio 38-34

New Orleans Louisiana-Lafayette (8-4) vs. San Diego State (8-4) Where: New Orleans When: Dec. 17, 6 p.m./ESPN The buzz: This is the first-ever bowl appearance for ULL, whose fans snapped up the Ragin’ Cajuns’ allotment of tickets in less than a week. ULL is guaranteed just its second winning season since 1995. San Diego State is making its second consecutive bowl appearance, but this is just the Aztecs’ third bid in the past 20 years. The pick: San Diego State 34-28

Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Florida International (8-4) vs. Marshall (6-6) Where: St. Petersburg, Fla. When: Dec. 20, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: FIU is making its second consecutive bowl appearance, not bad considering the school didn’t begin playing football until 2002 and didn’t join the FBS ranks until 2006. That makes you wonder how much longer coach Mario Cristobal is going to be at FIU. The pick: FIU 23-17

Poinsettia Louisiana Tech (8-4) vs. TCU (10-2) Where: San Diego When: Dec. 21, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: TCU won the Mountain West, and Louisiana Tech, coached by Sonny Dykes, the son of former Texas Tech coach Spike Dykes, is the WAC champ. Tech is looking for its first nine-win season since 1997, when Gary Crowton was coach. The pick: TCU 34-21

Nevada (7-5) vs. Southern Miss (11-2) Where: Honolulu When: Dec. 24, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Southern Miss doesn’t have a coach, the athletic director is retiring at the end of the month and fans are upset that the Conference USA champ is headed to Hawaii. Still, the Golden Eagles do have some players, and if they show up ready to play, they will beat the Wolf Pack. The pick: Southern Miss 34-24

Independence Missouri (7-5) vs. North Carolina (7-5) Where: Shreveport, La. When: Dec. 26, 2 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Neither team was quite as good as it should’ve been, but that just adds some intrigue to this matchup. The potential exists for a close and exciting game if both teams are motivated. The pick: North Carolina 28-24

Little Caesars Pizza Purdue (6-6) vs. Western Michigan (7-5) Where: Detroit When: Dec. 27, 1:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: This is just the fifth bowl in its history for Western Michigan, whose campus in Kalamazoo is about two hours from Ford Field, the venue for this game. Can Purdue cover Western Michigan WR Jordan White, who leads the nation in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,646) and is second in TD catches (16)? And can Western block Purdue DT Kawann Short, who has 6.5 sacks and 17 tackles for loss? The pick: Western Michigan 35-31

Belk Louisville (7-5) vs. North Carolina State (7-5) Where: Charlotte When: Dec. 27, 5 p.m./ESPN The buzz: We don’t want to say that this is a boring matchup, but given that Belk is a department store, perhaps those with tickets can exchange them for a sweater or some shoes. N.C. State is 93rd nationally in total offense but the Wolfpack are Patriots-esque when compared with Louisville (104th). The pick: Louisville 20-17

Military Air Force (7-5) vs. Toledo (8-4) Where: Washington, D.C. When: Dec. 28, 1:30 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Both offenses are potent and neither defense is that good. For an afternoon kickoff on a Wednesday, then, this has some potential. The pick: Toledo 37-31

Champs Sports

Armed Forces BYU (9-3) vs. Tulsa (8-4) Where: Dallas When: Dec. 30, 9 a.m./ESPN The buzz: BYU has won eight of its past nine, but only one of the Cougars’ victims is in a bowl. Tulsa’s four losses have come to teams with a combined six losses. But only two teams the Golden Hurricane beat are in the postseason. The pick: Tulsa 30-27

Pinstripe Iowa State (6-6) vs. Rutgers (8-4) Where: New York When: Dec. 30, 12:20 p.m./ESPN The buzz: Rutgers wins with defense, and its offense is mediocre. The flipside: Iowa State’s offense is solid but its defense isn’t much. Will Yankee Stadium ever be the same? The pick: Rutgers 24-20

Music City Mississippi State (6-6) vs. Wake Forest (6-6) Where: Nashville When: Dec. 30, 3:40 p.m./ESPN The buzz: A middling team from the ACC meets a middling team from the SEC. The good news: This is on a Friday night, and LP Field is a short walk (or at least a short cab ride) from a lot of good Nashville music spots. The pick: Mississippi State 24-10

Capsules by McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Northwestern (6-6) vs. Texas A&M (6-6) Where: Houston When: Dec. 31, 9 a.m./ESPN The buzz: A&M is the most disappointing team in the nation, and winning this won’t change things. One viewing tip: If A&M takes a big halftime lead, keep watching, as the Aggies likely will cough it up. The pick: Texas A&M 40-28

Capital One


Cotton Arkansas State (10-2) vs. Northern Illinois (10-3) Where: Mobile, Ala. When: Jan. 8, 6 p.m./ESPN The buzz: The Sun Belt winner vs. the MAC winner. This one should have a lot of offense, as NIU averages a bit more than 38 points per game and Arkansas State a bit more than 35. The pick: NIU 38-35

Derby Continued from D1 “We’ve had way less snow (for the derby in previous years),” Dirksen says. He notes that at least once the event was staged on Bachelor’s opening day. Dirksen describes the derby as a “mini banked slalom,” a reference to the Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom, which has attracted thousands of riders and top pros to northern Washington each February since 1985. While the Dirksen Derby is becoming more popular, hosting 150 or more boarders in each of the past couple of years, it is still something short of legendary. “I try to do stuff different than at Baker,” Dirksen says. “There’s no way to copy Baker. I call (the derby) a snowboard rally race.” Some big names who might compete this weekend at Bachelor include Norwegian pro Terje Haakonsen, who has won the Baker Banked Slalom six times and is regarded by some as the greatest snowboarder of all time. Ryland Bell and Ralph Backstrom, both of Squaw Valley, Calif., who appear with Dirksen in the popular backcountry snowboarding movie “Deeper,” are expected to compete as well. Jake Blauvelt, of Bellingham, Wash., who made Snowboarder Magazine’s list of “Top 10 Riders of the Year” the past two seasons is also “rumored” to be coming. “But it is all rumors,” Dirksen warns. “You never know who is coming until they show up.” Some of the best Bend snowboarders expected to take part are Curtis Ciszek, who won the Derby Elite division each of the past two years, and Austin Smith, who won the men’s race last year. “It’s not really a race, it’s more just to get together and rally down a really fun course with your friends,” says Ciszek, who has competed in every Dirksen Derby. Ciszek also travels to Mt. Baker for the banked slalom race each year. “It’s totally different,” Ciszek says of the Dirksen Derby.

Dirksen Derby founder Josh Dirksen describes the derby as a “mini banked slalom,” a reference to the Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom, which has attracted thousands of riders and top pros to northern Washington each February since 1985. While the Dirksen Derby is becoming more popular, hosting 150 or more boarders in each of the past couple of years, it is still something short of legendary.

Former Bend resident, Kris Jaymo Jamieson, who now lives in Portland, boards past a tree branch while carving a banked turn, during his run down the course at the 2010 Dirksen Derby at Mount Bachelor last December. This year’s Dirksen Derby is scheduled for this weekend.

“This is more of a rally race, more jumps and features, and the turns are way tighter. This year there’s a lot of big-name pros coming, and I’m sure they’ll come back.” Dirksen says riders will need to “let loose” on the course to win their divisions, but he adds that the course provides an “even playing field.” “Everybody has a chance to get a nice clean line down a short course,” he says. While the Dirksen Derby

in years past has mostly been a one-day race event, Dirksen is trying to make it more of a weekend-long social gathering for snowboarders. The Dirksen Derby Kickoff Party is scheduled for The PoetHouse in downtown Bend tonight at 7 o’clock. The party, for all ages, will include live music and a silent auction featuring the work of local artists using old snowboards. All proceeds will go to Eklund. — Reporter: 541-383-0318,

Doctors offer toy safety tips The American Academy of Pediatrics and the doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center offer some tips to help parents make safe choices when it comes to toys and gifts: • Read all warning labels before buying. • Think about the child’s age and skill level. • Avoid items with points or sharp edges and look for toys with a sturdy construction. • Most choking-related deaths come from toy balls, balloons and small magnets. • For those younger than 3, opt for toys that are at least 1 inch in diameter and 2 inches long. • Avoid toy jewelry that may contain lead or cadmium, which can be dangerous, especially when placed in the mouth. • For kids younger than 10, opt for batteryoperated toys and not those that need to be plugged in. This is a way to prevent burns and electrical shocks. • Toys with strings more than a foot long can be strangulation hazards for infants. • Be cautious about secondhand toys without warning labels. Use your best judgment and inspect them carefully. • Watch for buttonsized batteries in toys. Once ingested they can lodge in a child’s esophagus, which can cause injury or death. Also watch out for high-powered magnets, which, if consumed, can cause serious injury or death. • Discard plastic wrapping quickly after a toy is opened. • For more information and to learn about recall information, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission website at www.cpsc .gov.

MEAL • Eating alone can compromise elderly’s mental, physical well-being By Mac McLean The Bulletin



Horoscope, E3 Comics, E4-5 Puzzles, E5

oyce Gribskov plays “Invitation to Dance” on a 100-year-old music box before she and Meals on Wheels driver Larry Kogovsek walk to the back of her Northwest First Street home so they can check out her view of the Mirror Pond dam. “I like to show this off,” she said while Kogovsek placed her dinner — a frozen tray of ham steak, potatoes and green beans that also came with some fresh apple cobbler and a fresh nectarine — in the kitchen.


When Kogovsek joins Gribskov in a sitting room at the back of her house, the two chat briefly about a book she wrote about Bend’s history in 1980, her house and her experiences teaching fifth grade at Bear Creek Elementary School. “Everybody has something special they want to show you,” Kogovsek said as he walked back to his old Honda and continued delivering food for the Central Oregon Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels Program. Even though it was less than 10 minutes, Kogovsek’s visit gave Gribskov a sense of validation, companionship and a healthy meal that many of the almost 5,200 Deschutes County seniors who live alone often do without. According to some national mental and physical health organizations, missing out on these things can lead to depression and other health problems, such as heart disease, stroke and bone loss. See Mealtime / E6

Numbers about mealtime Earlier this year, the Home Instead Senior Care Network conducted phone interviews with 600 people across the country who are 75 and older and live by themselves in their own homes or apartments. The survey found: • 73 percent of those surveyed said they feel happier when they share their meals than when they eat alone • 65 percent of the men and 56 percent of the women said they eat better when sharing a meal than eating alone • Only 61 percent of those surveyed said they prepare a hot, well-balanced meal for themselves when they eat alone • 56 percent of those surveyed said their food tastes better when they share a meal with other people • Seniors who share meals on average spend 43 minutes eating; those who don’t spend 22 minutes on average Source: “Craving Companionship,” a report issued by the Home Instead Senior Care Network in June 2011

Pregnancy may affect sexual desire Let their imagination play in the outdoors By Armin Brott

Holiday concerts Families can choose from an array of holiday concerts throughout Central Oregon to rev up your Christmas spirit.


Over the past few weeks I’ve received a number of emails that hit on the same general topic, but, interestingly, from completely different perspectives. Here they are: Dear Mr. Dad: My wife is pregnant and I’m finding that I’m way more attracted to her sexually right now, and she’s not even showing yet. It’s like just knowing that she’s carrying my child is a turn-on. I’m scared she’ll think I’m weird. Is this normal? Dear Mr. Dad: My fiancee is seven months pregnant and ever since I saw my daughter-to-be on the screen at the doctor’s, I’ve had less desire for sex with my partner. I don’t love her any less and I still think she’s the most beautiful woman ever. Is this normal? Dear Mr. Dad: Ever since I found out I’m pregnant the idea of having sex seems kind of gross — it’s as if we’re doing it in front of the kids. I know what I’m thinking doesn’t make a lot of sense, but is it normal?

Dear Mr. Dad: My fiance and I recently found out we’re pregnant. Will it hurt the embryo if we make love? Is it normal to worry about this? The short answer to all of these questions is, Yes, it’s all normal. In fact, when it comes to sex during pregnancy, just about everything is normal. Let’s start with the safety issue. Unless the pregnant woman has a history of premature labor or has been told by her doctor to avoid sex, it should be perfectly safe. The baby is cushioned in a fluid-filled sac. Barring cramps or bleeding during sex, making love while pregnant is no more dangerous than at any other time. But when it comes to sexual desire, the range of “normal” is pretty big. Many men find the pregnant female body (with its fuller curves and larger breasts) erotic. That, combined with a natural feeling of power and masculinity that often accompanies getting a woman pregnant, can increase men’s arousal. At the same time, many women


find getting pregnant to be a confirmation of their femininity and attractiveness. That, along with the increased blood flow to the pelvic region, which may make orgasms more powerful and could boost sexual desire. A mutual feeling of closeness sometimes plays out sexually. On the other hand, if the pregnant woman doesn’t find herself particularly attractive — or worries that her partner doesn’t — she may not be terribly interested in sex. Ditto if she’s in the first trimester and feeling nauseous or in the last trimester and feeling awkward or uncomfortable. It works the other way around, too: If the guy doesn’t find his pregnant partner terribly attractive, or if he thinks she doesn’t find herself attractive, he won’t express any interest. Another possible libido killer is the partners’ realization that they’re about to become parents. Armin Brott is the author of “The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be.”

Just in time for the holidays: “Great Performances� cooks up a special feast from the San Francisco Ballet of an evening-length work by visionary Hamburg Ballet Director John Neumeier based on Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved “The Little Mermaid.� All well and good, but only if you’re looking for a dark, postmodern alternative to sugarplum fairies and the Land of Sweets: Neumeier’s “Mermaid� is about as far from the Disney animated film as Santa Claus is from Rasputin. Yes, there is a little mermaid who saves a drowning prince, falls in love with him, and makes a deal with the Sea Witch to gain a pair of legs so she can pursue him on land. But there is also a complete parallel plot involving Andersen himself, known as the Poet, who pines for the prince as much as the little mermaid does. In addition to obsessive, stalker love, the ballet drips with the themes of revenge, murder, sexual repression and tragedy. Ho, ho, ho. The timing may seem a bit off, but the ballet is worth a look, even if its many parts don’t always fit together. There is much to compel viewers’ attention beyond the new twist on the classic fairy tale, beginning with the performance of Yuan Yuan Tan in the title role. The Chinese-born dancer has been long known in San Francisco for her technical finesse, versatility and the seemingly impossible pliability of her angular, big-footed body. Yet it’s only in the past few years that audiences have seen real emotions emerge in

her performances. What makes the performance here is the wrenching emotionalism she brings to the role, first showing the mermaid as a happy innocent, then confused and yearning when she is awakened to love and, finally, destroyed and hopeless when she has to face reality. Equally fine is Lloyd Riggins as the mousy, sexually repressed Poet, as tentative in his moves as his character is with his heart. San Francisco’s Tiit Helimets, conspicuously costumed as a kind of Danish Sharpless, is a strapping and cluelessly self-involved Prince; Davit Karapetyan is a scene-stealing Sea Witch, glowering through Kabuki-like white makeup and attended by a gang of sea minions; and Sarah Van Patten makes a charming Princess. Martin West conducts the ballet orchestra with passion, care and intensity. While the ballet has been a hit in San Francisco, it doesn’t translate well to the small screen. Part of the reason is that dance is challenging to film well to begin with. But the difficulties are only exacerbated by Thomas Grimm’s plodding direction. The entire film is rather irritatingly paced with wide shot, followed by close-up, followed by wide shot, followed by close-up, and on and on. In a sense, this replicates how we watch a live dance performance. If it’s a populated scene, we take it all in and then focus on, say, the lead couple, or someone significant entering from the wings. When that’s translated literally to camera angles, though, well, you may find yourself reaching for the seasick pills.

It’s curious that the camerawork is so stilted, since almost every other aspect of the production is meant to evoke water, from the undulating white lines that suggest waves, to the almost hula-like arm movements of the characters and the fluttering fabric of the Mermaid’s overly long and wide blue trousers, meant to suggest a fishtail. Much of this is quite beautiful, and the beauty of the costumes, the flowing movement of the dancers and the blue-saturated set all contrast powerfully with the dark and seething sub-story. Yet in the end, the ballet falls short, perhaps because it is too literal. The most tangible evidence of that is how Neumeier decides — unnecessarily — to tell us that the action is taking place underwater: He has a miniature boat cross the stage on a wire over the heads of the performers. And later, when the Prince’s ship capsizes, wouldn’t you know it? We get the toy boat again, but this time overturned. It’s not just an absurd moment, but one that diminishes the endeavor.

P’ G   M  This guide, compiled by Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel film critic Roger Moore, should be used along with the Motion Picture Association of America rating system for selecting movies suitable for children. Films rated G, PG or PG-13 are included in this weekly listing, along with occasional R-rated films that may have entertainment or educational value for older children with parental guidance.

‘ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED’ Rating: G, suitable for all audiences. What it’s about: Alvin and his brothers and the girl group the Chipettes find themselves stranded on a desert isle. The kid attractor factor: Chipmunks, getting into mischief, singing helium-voiced versions of pop hits by Lady Gaga and others. Good lessons/bad lessons: “Kids will rise to the occasion if you just show them a little trust.� Violence: Slapstick stuff. Language: Alvin jokes about getting kicked in the “acorns.� Sex: Dance floor booty-shaking. Drugs: None. Parents’ advisory: Mild-mannered kid-friendly comedy, best-suited to the 10-and-younger crowd.

‘SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS’ Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and some drug material. What it’s about: Sherlock and his newlywed pal Dr. Watson must meet and foil Moriarty’s latest

20th Century Fox

Characters Brittany, voiced by Christina Applegate, Simon, voiced by Matthew Gray Gubler and Alvin, voiced by Justin Long are shown in a scene from “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked!� See the full review in today’s GO! Magazine. diabolical plot. The kid attractor factor: Nonstop action, plenty of Robert Downey Jr. whimsy, and more action. Good lessons/bad lessons: Keen powers of observation are the next best thing to having super powers. Violence: An awful lot of it — knife fights, gunshot wounds, poisonings, a grisly meat hook injury.

Language: A touch of Victorianera profanity. Sex: Well ... Stephen Fry has a nude scene. Drugs: Copious consumption of tobacco and alcohol; coca leaves are discussed. Parents’ advisory: Despite the violence, there’s nothing here that will scar your typical Harry Potter-age viewer — OK for 10and-older.

A   & A 

Generation gap can cause a failure to communicate Dear Abby: My fiancee said, “Shut UP!� during a recent conversation with my mom, using the phrase in the same way people say, “No way!� or, “Get outta here!� to express friendly disbelief. Mom didn’t say anything and gave me no reason to believe she was offended; however, I find talk like that better suited to friends and siblings — not parents or future in-laws. As soon as we were alone I asked my fiancee to please not use that expression with my parents. She said she’d try, but warned me that it might be hard to stop herself. A frequent reader of your column, she also said you probably would have told me to let it go. I suggested we find out. Should I have said nothing? — Possible Prude in New Hampshire Dear Possible Prude: Your fiancee is mistaken. I would never advise someone to ignore something that could be offensive. You were right to speak up. For people in your parents’ generation, “shut up� has a different connotation than with younger people and could be considered offensive. I hope your intended will take your suggestion to heart. However, in case she should slip, explain to your folks that the phrase is used commonly and isn’t meant as an insult — as jarring to them as it may be to hear. Dear Abby: I have had the same group of friends for 20 years. They are an affluent group — doctors, lawyers, etc. — and very social. My best friend got wind of the fact that I had gone out with an African-American man. She confronted me, told me we could no longer be friends and then kicked me out of her house. If I call her, she hangs up on me. We had a loving, longtime friendship. It has been five months now and NO ONE has called. I am sad and shocked. I always thought of her as my best friend, and my other

DEAR ABBY friends who were also dear to me are shunning me as well. What should I do? — Outcast in the South Dear Outcast: I know this has been painful, but you need to recognize that in spite of their educational and financial advantages, your friends’ thinking hasn’t changed despite nearly 50 years of improving race relations. You grew; they didn’t. For your own sake, you must accept that you and these people are on different paths and will never agree on this. Look elsewhere for companions who think more like you do. Believe me, there are many out there. Dear Abby: With the holidays here and family gathering to celebrate, some will be overnight guests. Although we have had pets here in the past, my wife and I are older now. Our home has been remodeled and we no longer have pets because we don’t have time to properly maintain an animal. We also travel frequently and don’t want to leave a pet in a kennel. My point is, if people are guests during one of these gatherings, please check first to see if pets are welcome. I know some relatives may feel their pet is one of the family, but they need to consider it may be a burden for the homeowner. — “The Old Guy� in Wisconsin Dear “Old Guy�: Excuse me? What if the family members your message is intended for happen to miss reading my column? Because you want to ensure the message is received, the most effective method to do that would be to speak up and make your wishes known in advance — especially in a case like this one. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Pressure builds quickly, as you could be judging yourself a little too much. Let go of this internal conversation. Go off and accomplish what you must. Tonight: Easy works. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH While many people stress out as a misunderstanding sets in, you find unusual solutions. A change in perspective might be absolutely necessary. You have a strong drive and a need to achieve. Your goal could be a social and/or personal one. Tonight: Fun and games, of the TGIF variety. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You are well anchored and determined to achieve exactly what you want. Stay light with a family member who often has to speak of gloom and doom in the name of realism. Have you considered that you might be too gracious? Still, express your uniqueness. Tonight: At home. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHH You are full of fun and excitement. Listen to your inner voice about a misunderstanding. What purpose does a misunderstanding serve but to push someone away? Rarely does that behavior serve you in the long run. Give it up! Tonight: Make a caring gesture. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Be aware of what you have to offer — not everything can be measured in financial or monetary terms. A loved one could create quite a smoke screen. You might want to express your depth and caring to another person in a way that counts. Tonight: Bring others together for a fun activity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You are all smiles and move through a hassle easily. You might want to do something very different. Do just that. Some of you want to explore a new, different or updated neighborhood. Others might have different fancies. If you’re at work, open up to a new idea. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HH You might want to vanish and play it low-key. Your innate creativity points to an imaginative flight of fancy. Others try to get you to land, to no avail. Take action later, when you’re grounded. Tonight: Not to be found. Let others wonder. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Zero in on what you want. A meeting plays a significant role in your plans. You could be confused about a domestic or personal matter. Put this issue on the back burner for now. Let a key person know that you both have been a victim of a misunderstanding. Tonight: Friends will want to join you wherever you are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Pressure builds wherever you are. You feel overly responsible, as if you must perform. You jump through some unnecessary hoops. Stop and indulge yourself a little. Buy yourself that coveted item. Tonight: In the limelight. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You discover the importance of breaking past a self-imposed barrier. You will see situations more clearly and feel better ultimately. Make plans before it is too late to meet a friend or loved one halfway during the next few weeks. Swapping gifts in a new setting could be fun. Tonight: Let your mind relax to great music. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You might believe you are too dependent on another person. Don’t worry about it. You are far more independent than you realize. Relax and enjoy this person in your life. Tonight: Try to live more in your heart than your head. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Others come toward you and share a lot of themselves. In a professional situation, you might not mind — personally, you could feel burdened by some of what is said and feel that in some way you are the cause of the problem. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.� Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Larry Kogovsek chats with Meals on Wheels recipient Joyce Gribskov, 84, after he delivers a frozen meal to her home Dec. 13. She can’t cook for herself because she uses an oxygen machine.

C o n tin u e d f r o m E 1 The importance of ensuring that these needs are met is also why Meals on Wheels is one of the Council on Aging’s most popular services — a trend that’s also seen among private home health care groups that offer nutrition programs. “It’s a godsend for old bastards like me,” said Thomas Marshall, an 82-year-old Bend resident whose house was also on Kogovsek’s delivery route.

Social interaction According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, slightly less than one-fourth of Deschutes County residents ages 65 and older — 17 percent of the men and 30 percent of the women in that age group — lived by themselves in 2009 (see “Senior Living Patterns,” Page E6). These statistics worry Tim Malone, a psychiatrist with the Deschutes County Mental Health Services seniors mental health programs who specializes in elderly patients. People who live alone, he said, can easily develop feelings of loneliness and boredom that can quickly lead to depression. “Loneliness, boredom and depression are the three prime killers among older adults,” he said, adding that these feelings may not only lead to depression but also increase someone’s risk of getting sick and make their wounds harder to heal. That’s why he strongly urges senior citizens who live by themselves to get in the habit of attending the meals served at one of the Council on Aging’s senior centers so they can get the social interaction they may otherwise miss out on. He also suggests people who live alone join a local veterans group — if they qualify — or another social organization that gives senior citizens a chance to get together regularly for breakfast, lunch or dinner. “Even being in the company of others is better than being alone,” Malone said, adding that human beings by their very nature are social animals and need interactions with others to maintain good mental health. He said the risks posed by loneliness and boredom are especially high among people like Gribskov and Marshall, whose physical problems may interfere with their mobility and keep them from interacting with people outside the home. Gribskov, a former smoker who suffered from respiratory problems including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, gets winded if she overexerts herself, even when she’s hooked up to the oxygen machine she keeps in her back room. Marshall lost a leg after he suffered an aneurysm in 2004 and spends most of his time on a bed in his den. “I chat with most of (my Meals on Wheels delivery people) .... They’re company,” said Marshall, who appreciates having a chance to tell Kogovsek about his children’s latest exploits as much as he appreciates having a frozen dinner he can warm up in his microwave. “I’ll even talk to the Jehovah’s Witnesses who come to my door.” Besides their upbeat spirits and general friendliness, Marshall and Gribskov have another thing that works in their favor — they both have family members who live in the area and visit at least twice a week if not every day. Other people receiving a Meals on Wheels delivery aren’t as lucky. In some cases, the only human contact they get during the day happens when their delivery person comes by with their dinner. Kogovsek is well aware of this fact, which is why he tries to chat with each person on his route for at least five minutes when he visits. But he’s got another reason for talking with the people on his route. After a certain number of deliveries, the conversations he has with the clients switch from being casual chats to conversations of a more personal nature, and it’s from this point that close friendships and relationships start to evolve. “The real gratification comes from connecting with people,” said Kogovsek, who has been a Meals on Wheels driver for eight years. “Over the weeks and months, you get to know people and build

Thomas Marshall, 82, seems to appreciate the chance to talk with the Meals on Wheels delivery people as much as he appreciates having the warm, nutritious meals the program provides.

relationships with them.” During one of his earliest delivery routes, Kogovsek came across an elderly woman who hailed from the same central Colorado steel milltown where his family came from. The woman stopped receiving Meals on Wheels when she moved into a nursing home, he said, but that didn’t stop him from visiting her once a week for five years before she died. “It was really strange that we both ended up in Bend,” Kogovsek said as he looked back on his relationship with this woman. He said their family members back home knew each other because it was a small town.

Eating well Eating well-balanced meals — which have vitamins and minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean proteins and

healthy fats while being low in cholesterol, salt and added sugar — can help senior citizens reduce their risk of stroke, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, bone loss, anemia and some cancers, according to the National Institute on Aging. But preparing such meals may not be the easiest task for people who live alone, especially if they suffer from physical ailments that keep them from moving around the house or going to the grocery store to buy food. “How do you go to the store if you can’t move around very well?” Kogovsek said. “People may have arthritis, they may have low levels of dementia — any number of things that just make them physically unable to do it.” Physical ailments aren’t the only thing that stand in the way of an elderly person’s

ability to cook nutritious meals for themselves. Lori Sensenbach, part owner of Home Instead Senior Care of Central Oregon, a business that matches the region’s elderly population with inhome caregivers, encountered this situation when her grandmother-in-law died in 1995 and left her grandfatherin-law to fend for himself. “He never learned how to do more for himself than make some toast, some toast and some coffee,” she said. Sensenbach said that concerns over her relative’s ability to cook for himself prompted her family to hire an in-home caregiver for him, an experience that later prompted her and her husband, Todd, to start their own home health care business. Sensenbach estimates about half the men who were born before World War II are in a similar situation — they never really learned how to cook for themselves, especially when it comes to cooking meals that meet the Institute on Aging’s nutritional recommendations, because their wives or other family members always did the cooking. But even someone who knows how to cook may not be willing to make themselves a nutritious meal, Sensenbach said, because it can take a little bit of time and effort to plan a meal, buy its ingredients, prepare the food and clean up once everything has been eaten. “When people live alone,

sometimes it’s just not worth the effort,” Sensenbach said, adding she’s heard stories about how some senior citizens will just have a bowl of cereal for dinner even though they know how to cook nutritious meals for themselves. The results of a survey the Home Instead Senior Care Network’s national offices released in June seem to back up these concerns. It found that 52 percent of senior citizens who live alone tend to eat premade or convenience foods for dinner instead of cooking themselves nutritious meals. The survey found these nutritional concerns were so prevalent that a considerable amount of seniors who live by themselves — 31 percent of the men surveyed and 17 percent of the women surveyed — have been told by a doctor or other health care professional that they need to eat better.

History is the Difference, Knowledge is the Difference, Global is the Difference

Marshall would easily fall into this group of senior citizens who don’t eat nutritious meals every day if it weren’t for the Meals on Wheels program. Even though he drives himself to the local Fred Meyer every now and then, Marshall said he usually just picks up some canned foods to heat up at home. He’d miss out on the chance to eat the healthy foods provided by the Council on Aging’s Meals on Wheels service — or a similar nutrition service the local Home Instead franchise offers to nearly 85 percent its clients — and the little bit of companionship he gets whenever a delivery driver like Kogovsek comes by his door. Now, though, Marshall has a completely different problem to deal with: “I think I’ve been getting fat,” he joked. — Reporter: 541-617-7816,

A joyful n ise • Jingle all the way to a holiday concert in Central Oregon


couple weeks ago, local theater companies and singing groups cranked up their Christmas

productions. This week, it seems musicians are ready to sing and play holiday favorites on stages across Bend.

Want to go somewhere and hear a pro do Christmas songs in a way you haven’t heard them a million times before? Here’s a roundup of your options this week:

Spyro Gyra spins Christmas gold Since the early 1970s, Grammy-winning jazz fusion troupe Spyro Gyra has been crushing it — and by “it” we mean the light-jazz scene — with a heady fusion of pop, R&B, Latin and other stuff. But on Sunday at The Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend, Spyro Gyra will perform holiday tunes from its “A Night Before Christmas” album: “11 tunes that capture the yuletide spirit with a decidedly traditional jazz vibe,” according to a press release. The On a Lite Christmas Nite

Holiday Concert at The Riverhouse, which the press release describes as “highly digestible,” starts at 7 p.m. with opener African Gospel Acappella, featuring four men from Liberia who survived war and poverty before meeting at a Liberian school for the blind. Spyro Gyra, with African Gospel Acappella; 7 p.m. Sunday, doors open 6 p.m.; $28 or $48, available at Newport Market (541-382-3940); The Riverhouse Convention Center, 2850 N.W. Rippling River Court, Bend; www or 541-382-3940.

Bill Keale’s Christmas show returns

It’s only December, but it’s never too early to be sick of the cold. Let Oahuborn singer and guitarist Bill Keale and a few of his friends — Kim Breedlove, Jay Bowerman, Lynnette Foss, Crystal Lum and Lyndon Onaka — help you “celebrate your holidays Hawaiian-style,” as Keale puts it, tonight during his Holiday Concert III at The Old Stone in Bend. Bill Keale’s Holiday Concert III; 7 tonight, doors open 6 p.m.; $20 in advance at Big Island Kona Mix Plate (541-633-7378) in Bend, $22 at the door, free for kids 6 and younger; The Old Stone, 157 N.W. Franklin Ave., Bend; www or 541-408-0561. Continued next page

John Doan turns back the clock The intimate setting of The Sound Garden in Bend will be an ideal spot to watch John Doan work his magic. Now in its 25th year, Doan’s Victorian Christmas concert is a live version of his Emmynominated TV special that features dozens of instruments, including classical banjo, an early roller organ, an Edison phonograph and a harp guitar, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a harp and guitar hybrid that makes one heck of a beautiful sound. Doan is one of the best-known harp guitarists in the world. Throughout the show, Doan takes the audience back in time “to a parlor of a century ago with thoughtful and sometimes zany performances that include audience sing-alongs


and whistle alongs,” according to his website. He also incorporates a multimedia presentation with rare photos of people caught in the act of making music. “John Doan breathes new life into old carols,” said Billboard Magazine, “and evokes the nostalgic, mystical side of Christmas.” The show will also be streamed live at www.tikilive. com/show/the-sound-garden. Victorian Christmas with John Doan; 7 p.m. Sunday, doors open 6:30 p.m.; $15 plus fees in advance at www (general), $20 (reserved) and $50 family pass (up to four people), available at the venue; The Sound Garden, 1279 N.E. Second St., Bend; www.thesoundgarden or 541-633-6804.

Being a veteran singer-songwriter, country music hitmaker and Broadway star all rolled into one must make for an interesting life. Take Gary Morris, for example. After his “A Starry Nights Christmas with Gary Morris” performance Saturday in Sisters, the guy is flying off to New York to play the lead role in the anticipated new musical “Soul Doctor.” The jet set, baby! In Sisters, Morris will perform Christmas songs and other classics, joined by his son Matt, whose “Hallelujah” duet with Justin Timberlake a couple years ago was a big hit. Students from the Sisters Middle School choir will also join Morris on stage for a special Christmas song. The concert begins at 7 p.m., but at 6 p.m., attendees can soak in the holiday spirit in the lobby with treats from Sisters Coffee Company and the sounds of the Sisters High School Jazz Carolers, plus a silent auction. The event is a benefit for the Sisters School Foundation, which raises money for classroom and cocurricular programs in Sisters schools. A Starry Nights Christmas with Gary Mor-

Blind Boys of Alabama sell out Before coming onto the secular music radar, Blind Boys of Alabama spent four decades playing churches and auditoriums on the black gospel circuit. No exaggeration! And that only takes the group’s chronology to 1979. The group formed way back in 1939 at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind, and though it still does gospel like nobody’s business, the men also perform spiritually minded tunes by such songwriters as Eric Clapton, Prince, Ben Harper and Tom Waits. On Thursday, the group will bring its “Go Tell It On The Mountain” Christmas show — a mix of holiday standards and gospel tunes — to Bend’s Tower Theatre, and tickets sold out a while ago.

Tom Grant plays The Oxford Hotel’s jazz series The second season of The Oxford Hotel’s Jazz at the Oxford series has already made a splash by announcing some big names (Diane Schuur kicked off the series last month; Bobby Watson’s coming in March). But the series also offers cozy familiarity in the form of some artists who’ve been to Central Oregon a few times. For example: Tom Grant, the Portland-based pianist and smooth jazz kingpin who’ll play the hotel’s dimly lit basement ballroom (aka “cool jazz club”) Thursday and next Friday, Dec. 23. Grant is a pioneer of smooth, blending traditional jazz with modern pop music and a mellow feel for decades. Plus, his blog at is a pretty entertaining read. In Bend, he’ll do an array of Christmas tunes and will be joined by Shelly Rudolph and Jackie Nicole. Tom Grant Christmas; 8 p.m. Thursday, 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Dec. 23; $35 (plus fees in advance at www.bendticket

music releases Javier Colon

Mary J. Blige

“COME THROUGH FOR YOU” Universal Republic Records It wasn’t just Javier Colon’s high, supple, long-breathed, achingly sincere tenor that made him the winner on the premiere season of “The Voice” this year. It was also his personality as a family man, earnest striver and allaround nice guy. He doesn’t break character on his new album, “Come Through for You,” which is filled with advice like, “If you want to make it in love, you’ve got to be ready to give everything.” But he is breaking with his pre“Voice” career: The two albums he released on Capitol Records, in 2003 and 2006, when he was billed simply as Javier. On those albums, in music he sometimes described as acoustic soul, he wound his vocal curlicues around his own acoustic rhythm guitar or he swooped above staccato R&B electronics and funk samples. He was already playing the nice guy, although at the time his songs were more about flirtation than settling in. Yet a hit that could have placed him alongside Usher or Maxwell never happened; before “The Voice,” his pop singles chart peak was No. 95. His winning strategy on “The Voice” was to lavish his voice on rock-ballad benedictions, among them songs from Sarah McLachlan and Coldplay, and he has stayed with it for new songs on

“MY LIFE II: THE JOURNEY CONTINUES, ACT 1” Geffen Records When Mary J. Blige released her classic “My Life” album in 1994, she was enjoying the highs in her career and weathering the lows of her personal life, battling depression and drug abuse. So it’s definitely a personal improvement that the sequel, “My Life II: The Journey Continues, Act 1,” is far more even-keeled, even if it lacks some of the passion of the original.

Daughtry “BREAK THE SPELL” RCA Records Wherever Chris Daughtry and friends start out in the songs from “Break the Spell,” either musically or lyrically, they eventually end up in their same dramatic sweet spot, with raised voices and pow-

“Come Through for You.” So long, R&B and funk; hello, soft-rock for adult-contemporary radio. “Come Through for You” is filled with marches and prospective sway-along anthems, like “1,000 Lights,” a Coldplay-style collaboration with the songwriters of OneRepublic, and “Raise Your Hand,” on which Colon urges, “If you’ve ever felt like you’re falling apart, raise your hand.” The acoustic guitar is still there, now lightly strummed and picked in the sensitive-guy style of John Mayer, although it’s usually just a preamble to a big crescendo and more reassuring bromides. The album stays kindly, polished and simpering all the way through, with only one surprise: the unromantic revelation that ends “OK, Here’s the Truth.” Colon’s skill as singer and songwriter is obvious, but now that he has national name recognition, blandness reigns. — Jon Pareles, The New York Times

er chords. Every time. It’s not a bad formula, and it has its moments, like the wrenching singalong single “Crawling Back to You” and “Louder Than Ever,” the super-shiny throwback to ’80s Bon Jovi and Loverboy. But it all blends together after a while, whether they approach it from the revved-up Aerosmith-influenced opening of “Renegade” or the weird “Spaceship,” which seems to share a similar melody to the theme from “Growing Pains.” On Daughtry’s previous albums, there were standout songs in which they tried something different, with mixed results. For “Break the Spell,” the sense of adventure is gone, leaving us with adequate, sorta-likable facsimiles of “Home” or “Feels Like Tonight” that are redundant from the start. — Glenn Gamboa, Newsday

Rihanna “TALK THAT TALK” Def Jam Recordings One of the upsides of the singles-oriented world we live in is that big pop stars need to produce hit songs continually, lest they be forgotten by their fickle, no-attention-span fans. And nobody works it as well as Rihanna, who releases an album every year. And there’s not a dud among them. This year’s model, “Talk That Talk,” is notable because while it remains highly titillating — the Barbadian beauty is keen “to be your sex slave,” apparently — it’s largely free of the Sturm und Drang that marked such

The bulk of “My Life II” is focused on updating the quietstorm R&B ballads of the late ’70s and early ’80s, delivered

S&M-tinged, self-consciously envelope-pushing efforts as 2009’s “Rated R.” Instead, “Talk That Talk” sashays with a lighter touch, as with the throbbing club-music blowout “We Found Love,” which features a guest spot by Calvin Harris, or the grabby Notorious B.I.G.-sampling “Talk That Talk,” which employs a guest rap by Jay-Z. Rihanna is never demure and often crass — see “Cockiness (Love It)” — but she’s one Madonna acolyte who puts lessons learned from the Material Girl into practice without being overly slavish. And while not given to highly ambitious artistic or deeply personal statements, she’s a hook-

Betty Wright & The Roots “BETTY WRIGHT: THE MOVIE” S-Curve Records In 2008, Roots drummer Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson got into the old-soul music reclamation business with a reverential production of Memphis master Al Green on “Lay It Down.” On “Betty Wright: The Movie,” ?uestlove again gets together with a deserving star of a previous generation who specialized in making baby-making music. In this case, it’s 57-year-old Wright, best known for her ’70s singles “Clean Up Woman” and “Tonight’s the Night” (which gets a sequel in “Tonight

Again.”) This time, the timekeeper brings along his entire band, who it seems can never be busy enough, what with their nightly Jimmy Fallon gig and a new concept album of their own, “Undun.”

emotionally in “The Living Proof” and stylishly with Beyonce in “Love a Woman.” Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of the Mary passion we’ve grown to love. She gets exorcised a bit in “2 5/8” and energized on a cover of Rufus featuring Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody.” But mostly the firepower on “My Life II” comes from her guest stars, including Drake on the current single “Mr. Wrong,” Busta Rhymes on “Next Level” and Rick Ross on “Why.” Knowing Blige, though, this situation won’t last long. — Glenn Gamboa, Newsday

singing, hip-hop hitmaker par excellence with a distinctive siren’s call she’s too savvy to bludgeon the listener with in the manner of too many other pop divas. — Dan DeLuca, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“The Movie” aims to make sexy “grown folks music” — “I ain’t no little girl, you ain’t no little boy,” Wright sings, while offering “a little knowledge you can’t get in college.” The album pretty much pledges allegiance to the drum sound and wah-wah guitar sonic signatures of Wright’s original hitmaking era, but it largely avoids the nostalgia trap, not because of inconsequential drop-ins by modern men such as Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne but because Wright’s still writing fresh songs and sneakin’ around and paying the price for doing wrong. — Dan DeLuca, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Co-owner Mike Rushing carries a plate lunch out to a table at High Tides Seafood Grill in Bend.

Treading water at High Tides • Downtown Bend’s best seafood restaurant still serves some great fish By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin


or years now, the High Tides Seafood Grill in downtown Bend has been my “go-to” favorite for seafood in Central Oregon. I’m not happy to report that on my most recent visits, I was disappointed. I won’t advise you to go anywhere else. But I am going to suggest that you stick with the fish, and think twice before ordering the shellfish. I make my recommendation after having a dinner for two, a solo lunch and a takeout sandwich.

A fixture in Bend since 1997, High Tides is owned by chef Mike Rushing and his wife, Staci, who bought it from the former owners — now at Tidal Raves in Depoe Bay — in 2005. The ambience is intimate and casual, with full wall murals painting a mood as if in an undersea kelp garden or inside an aquarium. Light jazz music played in the evening, classical during the lunch hours. Service was attentive, especially in the evening, when the little (49-seat) cafe tends to attract an early, older clientele. Rushing’s seafood preparation

tends to show more creativity than most other seafood restaurants. He commonly breads fish with Japanese panko or crusts it with Asiago cheese, and his southeast Asianstyle meals — made with coconut milk and/or green curry — rank among the best in town. What’s more, the variety of fresh fish — not just salmon, halibut and cod, but also specials like swordfish, sturgeon and Hawaiian mahi mahi, when available — is far better than what other local seafood restaurants are able to offer.

Dinner for two Still, there are shortcomings, as my dining companion and I discovered at a dinner a couple of weeks ago. Our evening service was among the best we’ve had in town. Our waitress was prompt and utterly efficient from start to finish, even cautioning me that my made-to-order soup would take longer to prepare than other options. She checked back often and was always available when we sought to catch her eye. The soup was worth the wait. High Tides’ Thai fish soup remains one of my favorite potages in Central Oregon, a zesty blend of Alaskan cod with coconut milk and lemongrass, yellow curry, red and green onions, cilantro and carrot peels and a little bit of rice. The broth is light and tangy, not overpowering the flavor of the fish with exotic spices. My companion had a spinach salad, and she was equally pleased. Baby spinach leaves were tossed with large rings of red onion, toasted pecans, bay shrimp and a few crumbles of Gorgonzola cheese. It was blended with a red-wine vinaigrette that accented the flavors, and the accompanying warm baked bread was a perfect complement.

Disappointing entrees But our entrees didn’t keep pace with the starters. My friend ordered Thai barbecued shrimp. A dozen full-size prawns on three skewers were basted with a tangy marinade and served, tail on, upon a bed of pan-fried noodles with a side of peanut sauce. Freshly sauteed vegetables filled out the plate. My companion had expected something more exotic, but this was purely comfort food, not a standout dish. I was less impressed with Sculley’s Platter, which I ordered specifically to sample several different ingredients. Fish, scallops, shrimp and oysters were stirred together with button mushrooms and tomatoes in a sort of casserole. Only the halibut — in two moist and flaky chunks — was truly excellent. The other seafoods were highly forgettable. The three shrimp were mealy and not distinctive in flavor. The oysters were small and muddy. The scallops were noticeably overcooked; the server was so apologetic when I complained that she brought a complimentary slice of key lime pie for dessert. The vegetables that accompanied my platter — broccoli, zucchini and carrots — were cooked al dente, as I like them. But a serving of rice pilaf was dry.

got off to a bad start. There was no host or server to be seen in the dining room, despite business at several tables, so I wandered to the back of the restaurant and called into the kitchen to see if they were still serving. They were. I started with a cup of smoked salmon chowder, cooked with chunks of skin-on red potatoes, red onion slices and dill seeds. The preparation of the fish gave the creamy soup a smoky, bacon-like flavor. I liked it, but left several potatoes when I was done. I especially liked the blackboard special of panko-crusted sole. The fish was lightly breaded and perfectly cooked: moist and flaky inside, slightly crunchy on the outside. It was served with house-made tartar sauce and a lemon wedge. The accompanying fries were very average. Coleslaw, made with white cabbage and a little carrot, was creamy and of perfect consistency but was too vinegary for my taste. Throughout the meal, my server had been excellent, delivering food in a timely fashion and checking back occasionally — until I was finished, that is. I waited at least five minutes to have my check delivered. I was again appreciative of the honest service, however, when I called later in the week for a take-out halibut burger, priced on the menu at $10. The woman who took my order advised me that because the price of halibut

had risen substantially, that sandwich was now priced at $14 — but if I’d be happy with cod, I could have the same sandwich for $9. I said yes. Although I could have requested the fish panko-crusted or beer-battered, I was pleased to have it merely charbroiled. It was served on a dusted bun with onion crisps and a side of pesto mayonnaise with which I could dress it myself. A fresh green salad accompanied. Like all fish at High Tides, the cod was excellent. I’ll keep returning for the fins.

glorious tradition

• C.O. Mastersingers perform Handel’s ‘Messiah’ By David Jasper The Bulletin


hen Central Oregon Mastersingers performs Handel’s “Messiah” with 20 instruments and nearly 50 voices this weekend at the Tower Theatre, it will do so in the manner composer George Handel intended for his oratorio about the birth and death of Jesus. Maybe. “I think most people would agree that Handel probably did it with about 40 singers and a pretty small orchestra, but who knows how he would like to have done it? Maybe he would have liked to have done it with 200 singers and a huge orchestra. We don’t know,” Mastersingers director Clyde Thompson tells GO! Magazine. The group has a Christmas concert tradition and has twice before performed “Messiah,” first in 2007 and, due to popular demand, in 2008. For the first time, Mastersingers is doing it at the Tower Theatre, and demand is still high: Tickets to the first two scheduled dates sold out more than a week ago, and a third has been added for Saturday afternoon (see “If you go” on next page). Handel composed the 2½ hours of music for “Messiah” during a 23-day spree of inspiration, and at one point of its creation claimed to feeling as though he’d seen the face of God. Though less may be known about what Handel originally envisioned for “Messiah,” Thompson says that 275 singers participated in a “Messiah” performance during the 1784 Handel commemoration concert, held 25 years after the composer’s death.

F rom previous page That large chorus marked the start of a growth trend: By the late 1800s, grandeur was the name of the game for “Messiah.” Orchestras swelled with instruments numbering in the hundreds, and as many as 5,000 singers took part in the choruses. “Messiah,” which Handel wrote in 1741, also lacks a singular, defining score. When it debuted in Dublin in 1742, “He made revisions before the premiere in order to adjust to the limitations of that performance. More revisions were made before the second performance, in June of that year, and yet again for its London premiere,” Thompson says in his program notes. Handel tinkered with his own work to better use the talent at his disposal. “For an individual performance, if he had a certain soloist, didn’t have a good soprano — some of those arias are written both for soprano and then they’re put in a different key for altos, they can be done with a tenor or a bass. So he was a very practical guy,” Thompson says, laughing. In addition to Handel’s own tinkering, re-orchestrations were later written (one by Mozart!) to accommodate changing music tastes. “The tastes in the musical world swing back and forth like everything with tastes. They’re on a pendulum,” Thompson says. “Who knows? I think that the tastes now are more toward wanting to do Baroque music, and classical music, the way it was performed in that time. We may be pretty close to that right now.” Prior to “Messiah,” the German-born Handel was wellknown for his Italian language operas, and had hung his powdered wig all over the bootshaped country before moving to London in 1712. There, that fickle beast taste reared its head again. Thompson says that due to a burgeoning English middle class and growing sense of nationalism, Italian opera went out of style in London, where the theater crowd preferred viewing the likes of John Gay’s 1728 satirical ballad opera, “The Beggar’s Opera.” Handel went out and started a new form, replete with arias and other opera staples. “He is credited with creating

the English oratorio,” says Thompson. “Musically, it’s very similar to an opera, except it’s not staged.” Though Thompson and the Mastersingers he leads are attempting to be as true to Handel’s 270-year-old vision as possible, there is at least one sign that this is a 21st-century performance: The audience is being invited to sing along with the chorus on three movements: “And the Glory of the Lord,” “Lift up Your Heads, O Ye Gates” and “Hallelujah.” “The Tower asked that we do it this way, and I had to be persuaded,” Thompson admits, adding that his aim is usually to show off the Mastersingers. However, he soon

fine arts warmed to the idea of a singalong. Google had that power of persuasion. “I did this the first time three weeks ago,” he said last week. “I Googled ‘Messiah singalong’ and there were 500,000 results. Yesterday there were 818,000 results. People all over the world do these singalongs. That’s the thing. Just a few minutes ago I Googled again, and (got) 868,000 results. So it’ll hit a million, probably. It’s going up by tens of thousands a day.” Thompson says he’s developed a playful theory that “people are born knowing this music. It’s become part of our collective unconscious.” “This piece is just unique. More than any other piece of music, it seems to really belong to the world. It’s sort of become public property, and people have a sense of ownership of it,” he says, and singalongs may play a part in that. “Every year, more and more people have not only listened to it, but they’ve sung it, they know the music, and they’ll jump at the chance to sing it.” “‘Messiah’ has become part of Christmas tradition for many, many people,” Thompson says. “The magic is in the music.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,


TangleTown Trio visits Sunriver Remember this old joke? Q: “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” A: “Practice!” Practice helps, but a childhood in Bend doesn’t seem to hurt your chances either. At 7:30 p.m. Sunday, the TangleTown Trio will present its Home for the Holidays Concert at the Sunriver Resort Great Hall (17728 Abbott Drive), the second of Sunriver Music Festival’s Fireside Concert series. The show will include traditional Christmas music and original compositions by the trio. Two members of the Seattle-based group, mezzosoprano Sarah Mattox and violinist/violist Jo Nardolillo, lived in Bend as children and have each performed at Carnegie Hall. (Accomplished pianist Judith Cohen began playing at age 5 in Chicago, a pretty nice town, too.) “TangleTown Trio is an innovative new music group dedicated to living American composers and the idea there should be no barriers between Art Music and its audiences,” Mattox explains in a press release. “We believe new music can and should be relevant and fun.” Tickets are $30 for general admission, $40 for reserved seating, $25 for seniors 65

and older and $10 for youth ages 18 and younger. Contact: www.sunriver or tickets@sunriver

Animal-mania • Imago Theatre presents ‘ZooZoo’ in Portland and Medford By Jenny Wasson The Bulletin


n a large rehearsal space in Portland, the Imago Theatre is turning to the animals. Or rather, turning into animals. The creators of the critically acclaimed “Frogz” are back with a new menagerie of creatures. Hippos, penguins, polar bears, anteaters and frogs come alive on stage in Imago Theatre’s newest touring production “ZooZoo.” A blend of mime, dance, music and special effects, “ZooZoo” is currently running through Jan. 1 at the company’s building in Portland. The production is also on tour and will make a stop Jan. 15 at the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater in Medford. According to a news release, “the company’s trademark style — which combines masks, dance and slapstick with witty social commentary on the human condition — is the result of over thirty years of study, development and practice.” Imago Theatre was created in 1979 by Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad. In a series of short vignettes, five dancers create animals that take on anthropomorphic characteristics. The program includes “penguins play-

ing musical chairs, a cat trapped in a giant paper bag, hippos with insomnia, anteaters as waiters and a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun.” “ZooZoo” is performed without dialogue to music composed by Katie Griesar. Imago Theatre gained international recognition with “Frogz,” its first series of animal sketches. The production ran in 2000 and 2002 at the New Victory Theatre on Broadway in New York. According to The Boston Globe, “‘Frogz’ is that rare theatrical event: familyfriendly entertainment that is actually friendly to everyone in the family.” “ZooZoo” is appropriate for ages 3 and older and features audience interaction. Ticket prices for the Portland show are $29 for adults, $25 for seniors (ages 65 and older) and youth (ages 17 to 25) and $16 for children (ages 3 to 16). For tickets, visit TicketsWest at or 800-992-8499. Ticket prices for the Medford show range from $24 to 30 for adults and $17 to $23 for children (ages 18 and younger), depending on seat location.

remember the rush of excitement the first time Nintendo unveiled the Wii’s motion controllers. The upcoming system was still called the Revolution back then, and the name seemed well-suited.

Weekly download ‘AGE OF ZOMBIES: ANNIVERSARY’ For: iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch From: Halfbrick Studios iTunes Store Rating: 9+ (frequent/ intense cartoon or fantasy violence, infrequent/mild mature/ suggestive themes) Price: $3 With respect to the angry birds and that cute “Cut the Rope” monster, no character’s ascension through the App Store has been as fun to witness as that of the Bruce Campbell-esque Barry Steakfries. His personality, and the sense of humor that drives it, are what transformed “Age of Zombies” into something more than just another twin-stick shooter with zombies in it. If you played that game, you should know “Age of Zombies: Anniversary” isn’t a sequel, but rather a graphical remaster of the original game that’s designed to take advantage of iPad and Retina Display-equipped iPhone screens. You can decide yourself whether a pretty new wrapper is worth a second purchase. If, however, the whole experience is new to you, “Anniversary” is worth a look. — Billy O’Keef e, M cC latchy- Tr ibune News Serv ice

Robert Downey Jr., left, and Jude Law return to their starring roles in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.”

The game is afoot — again • ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ is full of action with just a touch of classic sleuthing


suppose any hope of an authentic Sherlock Holmes movie is foolish at this epoch in movie history. No matter that a story is set in 1895 in Victorian London, it must be chockablock with explosions, gunfire, special effects and fights that bear no comparison to the “fisticuffs” of the period. As an Anglophile, I’ve luxuriated in the genial atmosphere of the Conan Doyle stories, where a step is heard on the stair, a client tells his tale, and (Dr. Watson reports) Holmes withdraws to his rooms

to consider his new case during a period of meditation (involving such study aids as opium). We see a great deal of Victorian London (and Paris and Switzerland) in “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows,” but we must look quickly. The movie all but hurtles through episodes that would be leisurely set pieces in a traditional Holmes story. This is a modern action picture played in costume. I knew it would be. After Guy Ritchie’s 2009 “Sherlock Holmes” with Robert Downey


“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” 129 minutes PG-13, for intense sequences of violence and action and some drug material

Jr. and Jude Law grossed something like half a billion dollars, this was no time to rethink the approach. What they have done,

however, is add a degree of refinement and invention, and I enjoyed this one more than the earlier film. “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” opens with an emergency that threatens to rock Holmes’ world: Watson (Law) is getting married. In the first film we learned of his engagement to Mary Watson (Kelly Reilly), and now a date has been set for the poor girl. Holmes (Downey), who considers himself every bit as much good company as the doctor could possibly require, deplores this development, and indeed even joins the blissful couple on their honeymoon train journey. At one point he throws

Mary off the train, but to be fair it’s to save her life. Most of the film centers on a climax in the long-standing feud between Holmes and professor James Moriarty (Jared Harris), who beneath his cover as an Oxford don is the mastermind of an anarchist plot to use bombings and assassinations to push Europe into war. Moriarty would profit handsomely from that because he operates an enormous secret munitions factory, turning out everything from machine pistols to gigantic cannons. The lives of many European heads of state are threatened, and Holmes is the only hope to keep the peace. Continued next page





Simply put, ‘Chipwrecked’ is just for kids A Sarah Palin joke? A Charlie Sheen wisecrack? Is this a Chipmunks movie or a Letterman monologue? As current as a Lady Gaga cover, if not quite as relevant, Alvin and the Chipmunks “Munk Up” for their third digitally animated turn on the big screen — “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” a “Cast Away” takeoff that parks the three chipmunks, their three Chipette counterparts and their human family on a deserted island. Most adults would sooner gouge their ears out than sit through these kids’ films. But for captive parents in need of a reference point, “Chipwrecked” is twice as funny at their last film, 2009’s “The Squeakquel.” And the return of Jason Lee as Dave Seville, the rodent wrangler who keeps our pop-singing ground squirrels in line, gives the picture a hint of the heart that made 2007’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks” work, at least for its intended audience. This time, the squeakers are off on a cruise prior to performing at a big international music awards show. And Alvin being Alvin, mischief is made and puns are purloined. “I like my tails shaken, not stirred,” The Big A (voiced by Justin Long) chirps as he dons a tux and sneaks out to hit the casino.

But that’s nothing compared to the disaster Alvin creates on deck. A kite and hang-gliding accident leads to Chipmunks and Chipettes overboard, with Dave and their disgraced manager, Ian (David Cross), now a lowly costumed ship’s mascot, tumbling in after them. They wash up on an island, the chipmunks in one pack, the humans in another. Each must find food, find ways to make fire and hope for rescue. Maybe they’ll even find each other. Simon, “the responsible one,” suffers a spider bite that turns him into a French-accented adventurer who goes by the name “See-MONE.” Thus Alvin finds himself having to be “the responsible one.” Kids may get the “Cast Away” gags — the rodents meet a longtime island dweller (Jenny Slate) who has made friends out of “Rawlings,” “Dunlop,” “Callaway” gear, where Tom Hanks set-

tled for a volleyball named “Wilson.” Kids probably won’t catch the “Lord of the Flies” references. These are urban chipmunks, so expecting them to know how to rough it is a bit much to ask, even though they’re “used to living in the wild.” “We used to be used to living in the wild,” Brittany (a helium-voiced Christina Applegate) corrects. But at least there’s always time for a song, from “Party Rock” and “Bad Romance” to The Go Go’s “Vacation” and the campfire favorite, “Kumbaya.”

The gags — Chipettes having a dance battle with cruise ship passengers from the Jersey Shore — and the jokes are pretty tame, the script relying a bit too heavily on “Oh no you DIDN’T” sass and kick-in-the-groin “Oh, my ACORNS” cracks aimed at 10-and-youngers. It’s about what

From previous page Once this game is afoot, it seems too large to be contained by the eccentric investigator of 221B Baker Street and Watson his intimate (I am using “intimate” as both a noun and an insinuation). It’s more of a case for James Bond, and Moriarty’s grandiosity seems on a scale with a Bond villain. Guy Ritchie and his writers, Michele Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney, however, wisely devote some of their best scenes to one-on-ones between Holmes and Moriarty. Their struggle comes to a head

in an elegant high-stakes chess game, held for some reason in Switzerland in the dead of a winter night on a snowy outdoor balcony. Moriarty is played by Jared Harris, who doesn’t gnash or fulminate, but fences with Holmes in barbed language. This returns the story somewhat to the tradition that Holmes did most of his best work in his mind. Watson has a more proactive role this time than previously. The movie opens with him recalling these events on a typewriter that is too modern for 1895 but may-

be suggests he’s writing years later. He’s not just confidant and chronicler but a hero too, involved in fights and shoot-outs. His wife must be thankful that Holmes abruptly eliminated her from most of the action. Holmes’ brother, Mycroft, turns out to be well-placed at the center of European diplomacy; Stephen Fry has plummy good fun in the role, especially in nude moments where he shields his netherlands from view by employing artfully arranged foregrounds in the “Austin Powers” tradition. Two

women characters are prominent. Back again is Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams), the enigmatic figure in much romantic speculation about Holmes. And we meet for the first time a gypsy fortune-teller named Madam Simza Heron, who is played by Noomi Rapace, the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. She capably discharges the duties required of her as Madam Heron, but demonstrates how really brilliantly conceived the Dragon Lady was. Heron is pale by comparison. It’s Downey’s movie. With his

you’d expect from a chipmunks movie directed by the fellow who handled “Surviving Christmas” and “Shrek Forever After” — not much. But the message — about giving kids responsibility — and the tone make it hard to hate on these “Chipwrecked” chipmunks. At least they took the time to sum up the whole movie in one Chipetteto-Chipmunk put-down: “You can make all the jokes you want, Alvin, but you can’t make this interesting.” — Roger Moore is a film critic for The Orlando Sentinel.

cool, flippant manner, his Holmes stands apart from the danger, thinking it through visually before performing it, remaining insouciant in the face of calamity. He appears in many disguises, one with a markedly bad wig, and another as a remarkably convincing chair. The thing to do, I suppose, is to set aside your memories of the Conan Doyle stories, save them to savor on a night this winter, and enjoy this movie as high-caliber entertainment. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.




‘Young Adult’ is fearless • It may be hard to like the heroine in this film, but it is a clever character study


hey must have closed their eyes and crossed their fingers while they were making this film. It breaks with form, doesn’t follow our expectations, and is about a heroine we like less at the end than at the beginning. There are countless movies about queen bitches in high school, but “Young Adult” has its revenge by showing how miserable they can be when they’re pushing 40. The movie stars Charlize Theron, one of the best actors now working, as Mavis, a character we thoroughly dislike. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but we see how she makes herself look that way, and what happens when it comes undone. She plays the onetime high school beauty queen in Mercury, Minn., who moved to the big city (Minneapolis), got her own condo, and is sorta famous as the author of a series of young adult novels about popular teens. Back home in Mercury they think of her as a glamorous success. Of course they haven’t seen her in years. They’re about to. In real life, Mavis lives alone, her apartment is a pigpen, she chugs liters of Diet Coke and throws back shots of bourbon, and is likely to be single until the end of time. She receives an email from Buddy Slade (Patrick Wilson), her high school boyfriend. Buddy and his wife, Beth (Elizabeth Reaser), have just had a baby, and here’s a photo of the little darlin’. That does it. Mavis gets into her shiny black Mini, drives home to Mercury and intends to attend the baby shower. In her mind, a tragic mistake has occurred. Buddy was intended to marry her, the baby should have been hers, and damn it all, it’s not too late to set things straight. “Young Adult” is the first collaboration between director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody since the success of their “Juno” (2007). Once again they center on a woman, but Juno was enormously likable, and Mavis seems unaware of her frighten-

ing effect on people. In the role of Buddy, Patrick Wilson faces one of an actor’s trickiest challenges, portraying polite social embarrassment. When you have a wife and a new baby and are holding a breast milk pump in your hand, how do you respond when an old flame turns up at the door and expects you to drop everything and run off to Minneapolis with her? The impossibilities of Mavis’ behavior in “Young Adult” require some sort of cushioning, and the film wisely provides the char-

acter of Matt Freehauf, played by the comedian Patton Oswalt. Matt and Mavis had nothing to do with each other in high school. “I remember you!” Mavis now tells him. “You’re the hate crime guy!” She is never the soul of tact. Yes, Matt was nearly killed in a gaybashing incident in high school, despite the inconvenience that he is not gay. Now he still lives in Mercury with his sister, stuck on pause. His experience has given him insight into pariahs, and he immediately realizes Mavis is nose-diving into disaster. What Matt knows while Mavis remains clueless is that Buddy is perfectly happy with Beth and their baby, and shudders when he sees Mavis approaching. Patton Oswalt is, in a way, the key to the film’s success. Theron is flawless at playing a cringeinducing monster and Wilson is touching as a nice guy who hates to offend her, but the audience needs a point of entry, a character we can identify with, and Oswalt’s Matt is human, realistic,

sardonic and self-deprecating. He speaks truth to Mavis. Oswalt was wonderful a few years ago in “Big Fan,” the story of a loser who lived through his fantasy alter ego as a “regular caller” to sports talk radio. He is a very particular actor who is indispensable in the right role, and I suspect Reitman and his casting director saw him in “Big Fan” and made an inspired connection with the character of Matt. As for Mavis, there’s an elephant in the room: She’s an alcoholic. “I think I may be an alcoholic,” she tells her parents during an awkward dinner. Anyone who says that knows damn well they are. But civilians (and some of the critics writing about this film) are slow to recognize alcoholism. On the basis of what we see her drinking on the screen, she must be more or less drunk in every scene. She drinks a lot of bourbon neat. I’ve noticed a trend in recent movies: Few characters have mixed drinks anymore. It’s always one

or two fingers, or four or five, of straight booze in a glass. Alcoholism explains a lot of things: her single status, her disheveled apartment, her current writer’s block, her lack of selfknowledge, her denial, her inappropriate behavior. Cody was wise to include it; without such a context, Mavis would simply be insane. As it is, even in the movie’s last scene, she reminds me of what Boss Gettys says of Citizen Kane: “He’s going to need more than one lesson. And he’s going to get more than one lesson.” Leaving after “Young Adult,” my thoughts were mixed. After “Thank You for Smoking,” “Juno” and “Up in the Air,” Jason Reitman has an incredible track record. Those films were all so rewarding. The character of Mavis makes “Young Adult” tricky to process. As I absorbed it, I realized what a fearless character study it is. The fact that sometimes it’s funny doesn’t hurt. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

Arthur (voiced by James McAvoy) stars in the title role of the animated comedy “Arthur Christmas.”

ON LOCAL SCREENS Here’s what’s showing on Central Oregon movie screens. For showtimes, see listings on Page 30. Reviews by Roger Ebert unless otherwise noted.

HEADS UP “The Adventures of Tintin” — Steven Spielberg adapts the popular Tintin comics — about an intrepid young reporter and his faithful dog Snowy — using motioncapture animation and the voices of Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig and Simon Pegg. The film opens Wednesday at local theaters. 107 minutes. This film is also available locally in 3-D. (PG) — Rafer Guzman, Newsday

“The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” — Daniel Craig is the disgraced journalist digging into a mystery and Rooney Mara takes on the title role in this remake of the Swedish hit based on Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy. The film officially opens locally Wednesday with a few screenings on Tuesday night. 158 minutes. (R) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“Home Alone” — Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) has become the man of the house, overnight! Accidentally left behind when his family rushes off on a Christmas vacation, Kevin gets busy decorating the house for the holidays. But he’s not decking the halls with tinsel and holly. Two bumbling burglars are trying to break in, and Kevin’s rigging a bewildering battery of booby traps to welcome them! The 1990 film will screen Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday at McMenamins Old St. Francis School in Bend. 103 minutes. (PG) — Synopsis from 20th Century Fox

“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” — Brad Bird (“The Incredibles”) leaves animation to direct this revival of the Tom Cruise action franchise. With Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton and Simon Pegg. The IMAX version of the film opens today at Regal Old Mill Stadium 16 & IMAX in Bend. The film officially opens Wednesday with a few extra screenings on Tuesday night. 133 minutes. (PG-13) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

WHAT’S NEW “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” — A Sarah Palin joke? A Charlie Sheen wisecrack? Is this a Chipmunks movie or a Letterman monologue? As current as a Lady Gaga cover, if not quite as relevant, Alvin and the Chipmunks “Munk Up” for their third digitally animated turn on the big screen — “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked,” a “Cast Away” take-off that parks the three chipmunks, their three Chipette counterparts and their human family on a deserted island. Most adults would sooner gouge their ears out than sit through these kids’ films. But for captive parents in need of a reference point, “Chipwrecked” is twice as funny at their last film, 2009’s “The Squeakquel.” And the return of Jason Lee as Dave Seville, the rodent wrangler who keeps our pop-singing ground squirrels in line, gives the picture a hint of the heart that made 2007’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks” work, at least for its intended audience. Rating: One and a half stars. 87 minutes. (G) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” — Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law are Holmes and Watson, teaming again with director Guy Ritchie in a sequel to their 2009 hit. Holmes’ archenemy, professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), figures heavily in an anarchist plot to bring war to Europe. It’s much more of an action picture than work in the Sherlockian tradition, but it’s great

fun. With Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Rating: Three and a half stars. 129 minutes. (PG-13) “Young Adult” — In high school, Mavis (Charlize Theron) was the ruling queen b----. Now she’s pushing 40, still single, drinking too much, and devastated that her high school BF (Patrick Wilson) is married and just had a baby. Planning to turn back the clock, she returns to inform him he must leave his family and marry her. The only old small-town acquaintance who’s nice to her is the misfit Matt (Patton Oswalt, in a wonderful performance). Director Jason Reitman teams with writer Diablo Cody for the first time since “Juno.” Rating: Three and a half stars. 93 minutes. (R)

STILL SHOWING “50/50” — Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a writer for Seattle public radio whose nagging back pain is diagnosed as a rare form of cancer of the spine. His chances are 50/50. Seth Rogen plays the best pal who tries to cheer him up, Bryce Dallas Howard is the girlfriend scared away by cancer, and Anjelica Huston is the protective mom. Written by Will Reiser, and somewhat autobiographical (Rogen is his good friend). Not depressing; more comforting. Rating: Three and a half stars. 99 minutes. (R) “Arthur Christmas” — “Arthur Christmas” is a spirited, comically chaotic and adorably anarchic addition to the world’s over-supply of holiday cartoons. It’s very British, in other words — from its producers (Aardman, the folks who gave us “Wallace & Gromit”) to its voice casting to the slang slung by the assorted Santas in this 3-D computer-animated farce. The movie’s energy flags at about the one-hour mark, but we kind of need that break to catch our breath.

From previous page In a genre — the animated holiday film — already overflowing with the sentimental, the silly “Arthur Christmas” is a most welcome treat to find stuffed into the cinema’s stockings this holiday season. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Three stars. 97 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“The Descendants” — One of George Clooney’s best performances, as a member of one of the old landowning families of Hawaii, whose wife is in a coma after a boating accident, and who must deal with family pressure to sell off a vast tract of virgin forest for commercial development. At the same time, having essentially left the raising of his family to his wife, he now finds himself as a single dad, raising Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) and Scottie (Amara Miller). With strong support from Nick Krause, Beau Bridges, Robert Forster, Judy Greer and Matthew Lillard. Another great film by Alexander Payne (“Sideways”). Rating: Four stars. 115 minutes. (R) “Happy Feet Two” — Sequel to the Oscar-winning 2006 film, with the Penguin Nation now trapped at the bottom of a giant ice bowl. It has much choreography, many musical numbers ranging from Queen to Puccini, a subplot involving krill, and too many penguins standing around looking too interchangeable for characters in a 3-D animated movie. Rating: Two and a half stars. 99 minutes. (PG)

Kermit the Frog realizes that he is short one act to fill the time for the live and televised Muppet Telethon in “The Muppets.” “Hugo” — Unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget 3-D family epic, and in some ways a mirror of his own life. The young hero (Asa Butterfield) lives secretly in a cavernous Parisian train station, where his late father maintained the clockworks. Now he maintains the clocks and dreams of completing his father’s project, a mechanical man. With Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl also living in the station; Ben Kingsley as her guardian, a toy shop owner; Sacha Baron Cohen as the Station Inspector and Jude Law as Hugo’s father. A great artist has been given command of all the tools and resources he needs to make a family movie about — movies. The use of 3-D is controlled and effective. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Four stars. 130 minutes. (PG)

“Immortals” — Without doubt the best-looking awful movie you will ever see. Involves the attempt by King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) to conquer Greece and the battle to stop him, led by a plucky peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill). Spectacular visuals, beautiful compositions, and an incomprehensible plot involving characters who often feel like strangers to us. Rating: One and a half stars. 110 minutes. (R) “In Time” — A science fiction movie in which time is a commodity. Are you willing to pay for 10 minutes of sex with an hour of your life? Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, maker of such original sci-fi movies as “Gattaca,” it involves people whose lives depend on an overarching technology: They can buy, sell and gamble with the remaining years

they have to live. Justin Timberlake stars as a hero on the run from the Timekeepers. Rating: Three stars. 109 minutes. (PG-13) “J. Edgar” — Clint Eastwood’s biopic of “America’s top cop,” possibly a repressed homosexual, who maintained a buttoned-down facade and focused his passion on the burnishing of his public image. By maintaining secret FBI files on those in power, he kept his job from 1924 until 1972, under eight presidential administrations, during most of those years living with the handsome bachelor agent Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance is fully realized, subtle and persuasive, hinting at more than Hoover ever revealed, perhaps even to himself. Rating: Three and a half stars. 136 minutes. (R) “Jack and Jill” — Among the famous people who make cameo appearances in the new Adam Sandler comedy “Jack and Jill”: Johnny Depp, John McEnroe, David Spade, Shaquille O’Neal, Drew Carrey, Christie Brinkley, Michael Irvin, Regis Philbin, Dana Carvey and even Jared Fogle, the guy from the Subway sandwich commercials. Total number of laughs all this amassed star power generates: One. “Jack and Jill” contains long stretches of squirm-inducing tedium in which Adam Sandler riffs and ad-libs far longer than he should, as if he thought that wearing a dress would immediately turn anything he did into comedy gold. Playing Jack Sadelstein, an L.A. ad exec dreading the annual holiday visit of his twin sister Jill (also Sandler), the actor is obviously having fun. But the party doesn’t include the audience. Rating: One star. 90 minutes. (PG) — Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald

“Like Crazy” — Anna and Jacob meet in a college class in Los Angeles. They date, it goes well, and

because she can’t bear the thought of leaving him, she overstays her visa and doesn’t return home to London on schedule. Later, when she tries to fly back to California, she’s nabbed by the airport immigration officials, and the movie is about their unhappy separation. Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones are warm, lovable and convincing in their roles, and there’s real emotion here, but I think there’s this flaw: It is within Jacob’s power to unite them, and by not doing that, he makes his love seem less serious than hers. Rating: Three stars. 90 minutes. “Margin Call” — A Wall Street investment firm makes a long night’s journey into collapse, as it becomes clear during one fraught night in 2008 that its enormous investments in unstable and fraudulent real estate deals will destroy it. An excellent cast (Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Demi Moore, Zachary Quinto, Stanley Tucci) play characters forced to realize their world is built from smoke and mirrors. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor. Rating: Three and a half stars. 109 minutes. (R) “Moneyball” — An uncommonly intelligent movie about a showdown in Major League Baseball between human instinct and abstract statistics. Based on the true story of the 2002 Oakland Athletics, it stars Brad Pitt as the team’s general manager, Jonah Hill as a nerdy Yale statistician, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as the hostile manager. Not a traditional sports movie, but one about big business and courage in management. The dialogue is smart and witty. Spellbinding. Rating: Four stars. (PG-13) “The Muppets” — The Muppets have retired and almost been forgotten, when Walter, his human pal, Gary (Jason Segel), and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), take a trip to visit the old Muppet Studios. They find them derelict, threatened by a millionaire who wants to level the ground and drill for oil. So, yes, hey, kids! Let’s put on a show! The Muppets and some human friends stage a telethon to save the studios. This is a funny and wickedly self-aware musical that explains by its very premise why some younger viewers may not be up-to-date on Muppet lore. Rating: Three stars. 98 minutes. (PG) “New Year’s Eve” — How is it possible to assemble more than two dozen stars in a movie and find nothing interesting for any of them to do? What sins did poor Hilary Swank commit that after winning two Oscars she has to play the role of the woman in charge of the New Year’s Eve ball in Times Square?

NEW DVD & B L U - R AY RELEASES The following movies were released the week of Dec. 13.

“Fright Night” — Set in Las Vegas, a city of the night. A teenager (Anton Yelchin) suspects his neighbor (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. The kid’s mother (Toni Collette), attracted by the charmer, pooh-poohs the notion. A Vegas entertainer (David Tennant), who does vampires in his magic act, is recruited despite great reluctance to advise on vampire killing, in a well-made thriller that makes one of its stakes through the heart an unforgettable use of product placement. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Extended and uncut “Squid Man,” bloopers and a music video. Rating: Three stars. 106 minutes. (R)

F rom previou s page And if you don’t think there’s dialogue about getting her ball to drop, you’re barking up the wrong movie. Also with Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Jon Bon Jovi, Ashton Kutcher, Ludacris, Zac Efron, Sarah Jessica Parker and lots more. Rating: One star. 118 minutes. (PG-13) “Puss in Boots” — DreamWorks’ cunning casting of the silky Spaniard Antonio Banderas as a swashbuckling Puss in Boots pays off, brilliantly, in “Puss in Boots,” a star vehicle for the nursery rhyme kitty cat from the “Shrek” movies. Thanks to Banderas and his Corinthian-leather purr and writers who know how to use it, “Puss” is the best animated film of 2011. This is no mere “Shrek” sequel. There is sex appeal in every syllable, swagger in every line. And even kids get the joke of a voice that sensual and grand coming out of a kitty so small. Rating: Three and a half stars. 89 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, The Orlando Sentinel

“The Sitter” — A genial layabout gets talked

“Kung Fu Panda 2” — Exactly as you’d expect, and more. The animation is elegant, the story is much more involving than the original, and there’s boundless energy. The kingdom faces the prospect that it will be conquered and ruled by an evil peacock, Lord Shen (Gary Oldman), whose minions have designed a new weapon. Po (Jack Black) and the Furious Five go into battle with the villain, and along the way the panda discovers his real father was not a goose. Lovely animation; shame about the 3D. DVD Extras: Three featurettes, deleted scenes and audio commentary; Blu-ray Extras: Additional featurettes and trivia track. Rating: Three and a half stars. 90 minutes. (PG) “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” — James Franco stars as a scientist who tests an anti-Alzheimer’s drug on chimpanzees and finds it dramatically increases their intelligence. After the

experiment is called off, he brings a baby chimp home, and Caesar (a motioncapture performance by Andy Serkis) flourishes until he rebels after being sent to an unkind primate shelter. With Freida Pinto as a beautiful primatologist, John Lithgow as an Alzheimer’s victim. The movie has its pleasures, although the chimps seem smarter than the humans. DVD Extras: Two featurettes and deleted scenes; Blu-ray Extras: Six additional featurettes and audio commentary. Rating: Three stars. 105 minutes. (PG-13)

into baby-sitting for three rambunctious children, and by the end of the evening they’ve gotten him into trouble all over town, involving cocaine, auto theft, cops, partycrashing and sex, in what the star, Jonah Hill, genially describes in his own trailer as “the filthiest R-rated baby sitter movie ever made.” Another slice off the cheesecake of dreck in the Potty Mouth Movie genre. Rating: One star. 81 minutes. (R) “Take Shelter” — A thriller of terrifying and ominous force, as an Ohio construction worker (Michael Shannon) is tortured by fears for his family, and seeks help for his terrors but also takes practical steps. One of the year’s best performances, in a film based not on horror film techniques but on widely shared human dreads. With Jessica Chastain as his loving and concerned wife. Rating: Four stars. 124 minutes. (R) “Tower Heist” — Not a great heist movie for a lot of reasons, beginning with the stupidity of its plan and the impossibility of the characters being successful at

anything more complex than standing in line. But it’s funny in a screwball way. Alan Alda is a Ponzi scheme shark whose solid gold Ferrari must be stolen from a penthouse condo directly above the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. With Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Gabourey Sidibe and Casey Affleck. Directed by Brett Ratner. Rating: Two and a half stars. 104 minutes. (PG-13) “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” — After defending her virginity for the pervious three movies in the series, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) allows the vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) to take her to the altar, after which they have an idyllic Brazilian honeymoon and she quickly gets preggers, leading to distressing problems. Absorbing, if somewhat slow-paced, and Stewart is affecting in her performance. But why is this film, with the most blood-curdling scene of live childbirth in memory, rated PG-13? Rating: Two and a half stars. 117 minutes. (PG-13)

COMING UP: Movies scheduled for national release Dec. 20 include “Warrior,” “Margin Call,” “Straw Dogs,” “Columbiana,” “Dolphin Tale” and “Midnight in Paris.” Check with local video stores for availability. — Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun-Times (“DVD and Blu-ray Extras” from wire and online sources)
