PRAY FOR SNOW, BUT BE PATIENT • Despite La Niña, a ‘completely unusual’ December could be one of the driest on record

A pedestrian walks across the Colorado Avenue footbridge Thursday morning. The Bend park district’s plan to turn the spillway into a recreation site includes replacing the footbridge to provide more clearance. That cost alone is estimated at $1.65 million to $1.87 million.

Colorado dam project costs will double — or even triple By Nick Grube The Bulletin

Changing the Colorado Avenue dam spillway from a potential hazard into a recreational draw will cost at least twice as much as expected. For the past couple of years, the Bend Park & Recreation District has been working on a plan to alter the spillway to allow floaters and kayakers to maneuver downstream without having to portage around the dam. A major component of the project is to improve safety on the Deschutes River. Spillway rescues have become an annual occurrence, and in 2006, a Keizer woman died there. The spillway modifications include dividing the river into three parallel segments: One for a whitewater play area, another for wildlife habitat and a third for a lazy-river-like passage past the dam. Estimates for such an undertaking were initially placed at $1.7 million, but now that the district has a deeper understanding of the project that figure has risen to $3.5 million to $4.9 million. “We’ve done more detailed engineering work,” Park District Project Manager Robin Laughlin said. “That’s the driving force behind those increases.” See Spillway / A5

Group resists tax drop for wealthy Oregonians By Jonathan J. Cooper The Associated Press

SALEM — Wealthy Oregonians will get a bit of a break on their taxes next year, and a left-leaning interest group says it will fight the automatic cut included in a voter-approved tax measure. Our Oregon, which is backed largely by unions, says the Legislature shouldn’t allow the top tax rates to drop when schools have to cram more students into classrooms and lawmakers are pondering more cuts to help programs. But the idea is unlikely to go far in Salem, where it would In Local require approval from a su• Panel will rule permajority of lawmakers. on hiring freeze The tax drop was built into exemptions, C3 Measure 66, the hotly contested referendum that raised taxes on people making at least $125,000.

“This is completely unusual right now,” said Kathie Dello, deputy

director of the Oregon Climate Service in Corvallis. Unusual could be the best way to describe this month around the state. So far Portland has had less rain than Tucson, Ariz.; fogsocked Corvallis has been as cold as Buffalo, N.Y.; and Central Oregon has had less precipitation than what fell in July, according to the Oregon Climate Service. The service is the state’s repository for climate information at Oregon State University. Bend’s driest December came in 1976, when rare drought conditions during the winter left the city with no recorded rain or snowfall. Twelve years earlier, in

1964, a record 8.74 inches of precipitation fell. The average high temperature in Bend this month has been close to 46 degrees, about 6 degrees more

than a typical December, according to National Weather Service data collected at the Bend public works buildings near Pilot Butte. The dry spell has been particularly surprising because it’s happening during what those in the weather world call a La Niña event, Dello said. During a La Niña, colder-than-average ocean temperatures in the Pacific Ocean around the Equator cause storm tracks across North America to shift over the Northwest. Typically that means more snow and rain than normal. See Weather / A4

A slow start to the winter has businesses dependent on snow-related tourism looking ahead, with stormier weather and the traditional start of the holiday tourist crush both just days away. There’s been no significant snow at Mt. Bachelor since the late November storm that allowed the resort to open in time for Thanksgiving. Snowpack at the base has been stuck on 31 inches since early December, said spokesman Andy Goggins, leading to a few discussions about setting up a webcam on the stake where snow is measured. Some who watch conditions at the mountain closely are having a hard time believing the base is neither growing nor shrinking. “We’ve had a few people ask us, ‘That can’t be right, it’s been at the same place for three weeks,’ ” Goggins said. Goggins said Mt. Bachelor’s snowpack is in better shape than several resorts in California, and the resort has seen a good number of out-of-state skiers and snowboarders. See Snow / A4

Ivy League is using financial aid to lure elite athletes By Bill Pennington New York Times News Service

The eight Ivy League colleges, renowned for their academics, were also once among the country’s highest-achieving athletic institutions, with national champions and multiple prominent and ranked sports teams. But that was 70 or 80 years ago, right?

On vacation in Central Oregon, Jon Bowser of Bozeman, Mont., left, and Amy Dethlefs of Anchorage, Alaska, walk across dirt to get to the snowpack before cross-country skiing at Virginia Meissner Sno-park on Thursday. “It looks a lot lower than last time I was here,” Dethlefs said. The last measurable precipitation fell in Bend on Nov. 23, but a slight chance of rain and snow is forecast for Christmas Day.

From voice on the fringe to serious contender R on Paul rides in the back of a campaign van that’s rolling toward the New Hampshire seacoast for a town hall meeting. He’s not the standard presidential candidate — he lacks the factorybuilt appearance of Mitt Romney or Rick Perry. He’s thin, bony, a bantam rooster. He’s 76 — the only one in the race who was born during the Great Depression. He doesn’t wear his seat belt. “I never have,” he says, and doesn’t explain whether it’s a matter of back-seat comfort or a deep aversion to nanny-state meddling in our lives. There are lots of things he doesn’t do, such as make small talk, or touch the tray of cookies at his feet, or doff his suit jacket and try to relax. What he’s eager to do is talk about ideas. The Texas congressman doesn’t have “positions” on “issues.” He has a philosophy. The one big idea: Government tramples liberty. He’s by far the most radically anti-government candidate in the running. He’d boil the federal government down to a few skeletal functions. He’d end the welfare state, cut every dime of foreign aid, halt overseas military action and bring home all the troops. He’d return to the gold standard and abolish the Federal Reserve. Paul opposes not only recent government shenanigans but also stuff that happened 50 or 70 or 90 years ago, such as the creation of Medicare (1965), Social Security (1935) and the federal income tax (1913). He’s against national banks, the first of which was the handiwork of Alexander Hamilton in 1791. He’s also a force to be reckoned with in this presidential cycle. He has passionate followers from across the political spectrum, a good organization, a distinct libertarian message and plenty of money. He could be a game-changer. No one has ever accused Ron Paul of being a flip-flopper. He has been saying the same things for 35 years. Now world events have conspired to make him look increasingly on point. He has warned for decades about financial meltdowns and the unchecked power of central bankers, and on this very day, as he’s heading to the seacoast, the Fed has teamed with central bankers overseas to infuse massive amounts of money into the world banking system. It’s an effort to keep Europe’s debt crisis from bringing down the global economy. The stock market is ecstatic. Paul is disgusted. “They’re the professional lenders of last resort, which means they’re the professional counterfeiters,” he says of the Fed. “They’re going to end up buying bad debt. ... It’s going to end up prolonging the agony, and things are going to get a lot worse.” Paul is the Alternative Candidate, someone who subscribes to an alternative history of the world. Paul believes that powerful and secretive forces (the Fed being the best example) have manipulated human events and bankrolled wars. He fears that the nation is turning into an Orwellian police state. He points out that, even as the Fed is taking this ominous action, the Senate is pushing through a defense bill that he argues would erode American civil liberties. He’s a stalwart opponent of the USA Patriot Act and regularly condemns post-Sept. 11 security measures, as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “As conditions get worse, you know, they’ll blow up the fears, both economic and the threat of terrorism, so that you can have martial law,” he says. Martial law? Really?

Sure, he says. “It’ll be an exaggeration of what happened in World War II when they rounded up the Japanese and put them in concentration camps,” he predicts. “Now it’s going to be anybody who speaks out against the government.” Paul flirts with apocalyptic thinking and opposes many of the political structures of modern America, and yet he has had a life that could be described as the American Dream. From modest beginnings, he became a highly successful obstetrician/gynecologist, delivered about 4,000 babies, became the patriarch of a sprawling family and was elected to Congress 12 times. “The American Dream” is the term his wife, Carol, uses to describe their life in the “Ron Paul Family Cookbook.” Not many dystopians have cookbooks, but Paul is one who does. It’s folksy, chatty, filled with pictures of the kids (five) and grandkids (18) and greatgrandkids (five). The Pauls live in Lake Jackson, Tex., south of Houston. They sat 30 for their Thanksgiving dinner this year. Nothing fancy, just paper plates and paper cups. Ron Paul loves to garden. Turn your back, and he’s repotting a plant. So he’s writing a book called “The Revolution: A Manifesto” one day and dividing bulbs the next. “He’s ready to make a monstrous change in the world and yet he’s such a down-to-earth person,” says his close friend and fellow doctor Rick Hardoin, a Lake Jackson pediatrician. “Doesn’t sit there and pat himself on the back. He’s a humble person. There’s no pride, none of this ‘I’m so great.’ ” Paul is in many ways a

throwback. He’s a product of the Depression and World War II. His eldest son, Ronnie, says his father believes in fundamentals such as hard work, earning your way, being thrifty. “There’s no free lunch,” the son says. “You have to earn it. No one gives you anything.” Ronald Ernest Paul was born in 1935 in Green Tree, Pa., near Pittsburgh, and was raised on a five-acre farm. His was a family of scrimpers and savers — “rather poor,” he said in one debate. But he added: “I didn’t even know it.” The kids helped out in the family’s dairy business. They had to inspect the glass bottles to make sure they were clean. If they found a bottle that was dirty, they’d get a penny. He tells this story in his book “End the Fed.” “End the Fed” also discusses his grandparents, one of them born in Germany, another a first-generation GermanAmerican who visited Germany in the 1920s and saw the disaster of the Weimar Republic’s runaway inflation. His grandmother, he writes, was reluctant to sell a piece of property; she wanted to hang on to it “in case the money goes bad.” This idea — that the money can go bad — has scriptural echoes. Paul, who was raised a Lutheran and now attends a Baptist church, quotes Genesis 47:15 in the book: “So when the money failed in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph and said, ‘Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For the money has failed.’ ” As a boy, he didn’t think about these things, nor did he ponder them much as an undergraduate at Gettysburg College, but by the time he was in medical school at Duke he “started having a curious mind about what made the world tick economically.” He read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” and Friedrich Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom.” He was captivated by the Austrian economics school of thought promulgated

by Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard and others. The Austrian school preaches free-market absolutism. There aren’t many places on the planet that have adhered to Austrian economics. Paul says it has been tried to some extent in Switzerland and Hong Kong. And also Byzantium. “If you go back to the Byzant, the Byzantine Empire, I think they had like a thousand years that they just used gold coins,” he says. “The Roman empire was stable for a long time, and then they fought too many foreign wars, and they inflated by diluting the metals and clipping coins. They went off sound money.” The event on the seacoast turns out to be an excellent one, about 200 people filling a meeting room in a Portsmouth hotel. The Paul campaign prefers relatively intimate gatherings. The challenge is finding a way to keep attendance down. Such is the quirky nature of Paul’s candidacy. His faithful will drive hundreds of miles. They’ll show up wearing their “End the Fed” T-shirts and already knowing exactly what he thinks. But what Paul really needs are the undecided voters. Campaign staffers use direct mail to reach the undecideds and avoid hyping events on the Internet. Still, the congressman has come a long way from his days as a lonely voice on the fringe of the Republican Party. “I watched him give speeches to five people and 10 people for many, many years,” his son Ronnie says.

House GOP leaders yield, agree to deal By Rosalind S. Helderman The Washington Post

U.S. deal with Taliban breaks down By Karen DeYoung The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration, as part of an accelerated push toward an endgame in Afghanistan, last month reached a tentative accord with Taliban negotiators that would have included the transfer of five Afghans from U.S. detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the Taliban’s public renunciation of international terrorism. The deal called for the prisoners to be sent to house arrest in Qatar, where the Taliban planned to open an office, and additional actions by both sides, according to U.S. and European officials who would discuss the sensitive negotiations only condition of anonymity. Until now, no Guantanamo detainees have left the prison as bargaining chips in a larger deal. It was the closest that the parties have come to genuine peace negotiations after nearly a year of talks, officials

said. They said the agreement ultimately collapsed after Afghan President Hamid Karzai balked at its terms. “Right now, things have stopped,” said a senior Obama administration official. “Everybody is taking a deep breath.” Contacts with the Taliban are expected to be re-established early in the new year. The negotiations reflect a marked change over the past year in what the administration believes is both acceptable and achievable in Afghanistan, apart from the core objective of eliminating al-Qaida and the possibility that it could reestablish an Afghan presence. Disappointment in the governments of both Afghanistan and Pakistan, economic and political pressures at home, and sheer fatigue with the decade-long effort have led to lowered expectations as the United States and its allies head toward the scheduled withdrawal of all foreign troops by the end of 2014.

WASHINGTON — Facing withering criticism from across the political spectrum and abandoned by Senate allies, House Republicans bowed to political reality Thursday and agreed to a two-month extension of a payroll tax cut for 160 million Americans. The agreement represented a remarkable capitulation on the part of House Republicans, who had two days earlier rejected such a deal with Democrats as the kind of halfmeasure that their new majority was elected to thwart. And it amounts to a Christmas gift for President Obama, who attempted to paint his Republican opponents as willing to raise taxes for millions of Americans. Such an image could have cost the party politically just as it is gearing up to try to take back the White House and Senate in 2012. The deal resolved the last stalemate in a year of bitter congressional fighting that earned lawmakers their lowest approval ratings in recent memory.

In exchange for supporting the 60-day patch, Republicans secured minor face-saving concessions from Senate leaders, who had already passed a twomonth deal on an overwhelming 89-to-10 vote. Senate leaders had balked at the House’s demand to restart talks over the holidays on a full-year extension of the tax cut. The Senate agreed to make a technical change to the payroll tax reporting requirements, designed to lessen the burden on small businesses of implementing the two-month deal. And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., promised he would appoint a conference committee to take up negotiations after New Year’s Day on ways to pay for a full-year tax cut. Reid and Obama have been pushing for a full-year tax relief package for weeks. Republicans, on the other hand, have been divided over whether a payroll-tax holiday is a good way to stimulate the economy. Congressional leaders said they expected to ratify the deal in voice votes on Friday that

will require only a handful of members to be in Washington. Under the agreement, benefits for the long-term unemployed will also be extended for two months and scheduled cuts in reimbursements to doctors who serve Medicare patients will be postponed. The $33 billion package will be funded by increasing the fees that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac charge lenders for guaranteeing home loans. Obama had insisted the Senate’s two-month deal was the only way to prevent payroll taxes from leaping from 4.2 percent to 6.2 percent next month for 160 million workers. He had secured the original, year-long break in the payroll tax last December and argued that the extension was necessary to boost the economy. “This is good news, just in time for the holidays,” the president said in a statement Thursday evening. “This is the right thing to do to strengthen our families, grow our economy, and create new jobs. This is real money that will make a real difference in people’s lives.”

Deadly blasts rock Baghdad By Jack Healy New York Times News Service

BAGHDAD — A series of explosions ripped through Iraq’s capital Thursday, in an ominous turn for a country already reeling from a deepening political and sectarian crisis that erupted after the departure of the U.S. military. It was Baghdad’s deadliest day in more than a year. The attacks began at 6:30 a.m. and transformed the morning commute into a bloodbath. Car bombs and improvised explosives destroyed schools, markets and apartments. An ambulance packed with explosives incinerated a government office. At least 63 people were killed and 185 wounded. On Thursday night, four more blasts shook Baghdad, killing three more people.

There were fears that the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. troops might lead to instability in Iraq, but the speed with which conditions have deteriorated has alarmed Western officials. Until Thursday, however, the bitter fighting between Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a Shiite, and his political foes in Parliament had not been accompanied by a rise in violence. But with this round of bombings, the political turmoil seemed to spill into the streets, where a still potent insurgency, in abeyance for some time, remains capable of mounting attacks that can undermine the fragile government and pit Sunnis against Shiites. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks on Thursday, but they appeared similar to others conducted by the largely

homegrown Sunni insurgent group, al-Qaida in Iraq. A day earlier, al-Maliki added new tensions to the political climate by threatening to discard Iraq’s fragile power-sharing government. He has never liked the U.S.-backed arrangement, which yokes Iraq’s Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds into one awkward partnership, but simply abandoning the idea could bring new howls of anger from Iraq’s Sunni minority and create more instability. Al-Maliki’s Shiite-led government ignited a firestorm this week when it accused the Sunni vice president, Tariq alHashimi, of running a death squad. The Kurdish regional government in Iraq’s semiautonomous north offered no sign on Thursday that it would heed al-Maliki’s demand that they surrender al-Hashimi, who fled there several days ago.

U.S. report faults both sides in deadly Pakistan strike New York Times News Service WASHINGTON — A U.S. military investigation has concluded that a series of checks and balances designed to prevent deadly crossborder mishaps with Pakistan failed to avert a NATO airstrike last month that killed 26 Pakistani troops in part because U.S. officials did not trust Pakistan enough to give it detailed information about U.S. troop locations in Afghanistan. A report by the inquiry concluded mistakes by both U.S. and Pakistani troops led to airstrikes against two Pakistani posts on the Af-

ghanistan border. But two crucial findings — that the Pakistanis fired first at a joint Afghan-American patrol and that U.S. aircraft fired back after repeatedly warning the Pakistanis that they were shooting at allied troops — were likely to further anger Pakistan and plunge the relationship between the United States and Pakistan to new depths. In an important detail that was not disclosed at the Pentagon briefing but is likely to further aggravate relations with Islamabad, a U.S. officer said the joint patrol of 120 Afghan and U.S. Special Operations forces, operating along the often poorly demarcated

frontier between Afghanistan and Pakistan, had come under Pakistani fire as it was entering an Afghan village. The U.S. officer said he believed the Pakistanis had used night vision technology because their shooting was unusually accurate, even though there were no casualties. Pakistan has insisted its forces did nothing wrong, and that they did not fire the first shots.

Prosecutors portray Manning as determined data leaker By Annie Linskey The Baltimore Sun

FORT MEADE, Md. — In closing arguments Thursday, Army prosecutors presented a damning portrait of Pfc. Bradley Manning as a soldier who used his top- Manning secret security clearance to scour classified computer networks for documents and burn the data onto discs with the express purpose of leaking it. “I’m throwing everything I got on (Guantanamo) at you now,” Manning typed from his bunk south of Baghdad during an earlymorning online chat with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, according to a government presentation. Defense attorney David Coombs did not dispute evidence that Manning leaked the data, but instead sought to show that the military environment in which Manning operated was dysfunctional and that Manning’s supervisors ignored ample warnings that the soldier was unstable. He also argued that the leaks did no harm. “The sky is not falling,” Coombs said. “The sky has not fallen. The sky will not fall.” The presentations by both sides marked the end of a seven-day Article 32 hearing at Maryland’s Fort Meade. The presiding officer, essentially a judge for the proceedings, is charged with using the evidence presented in open court along with 300,000 pages of government documents to recommend whether Manning should face a courtmartial. The recommendation is due by Jan. 16. Manning is charged with 22 counts, including aiding the enemy and violating the Espionage Act, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, an anti-secrecy website. If found guilty, he could be sentenced to life in prison. The hearing offered the first public glimpse of Manning since he was arrested 19 months ago. He attended each day, appearing to be healthy and alert, often conferring with his lawyers.

Snow Continued from A1 Conditions have allowed for snowmaking on parts of the lower mountain, he said, but they’re counting on incoming storms to drop enough snow to open the Northwest Express and Summit Express lifts for the first time this season. “We’re just crossing our fingers and hoping we get some snow, and hoping it’s a nice, gentle storm, not too windy to affect lift operations,” he said. The lack of snow has been most notable at lower elevations, where snowshoers and cross country skiers spend much of their time.

35% of nordic trails open Dale Navish, president of Meissner Nordic, the ski club that manages the trail network at Meissner Sno-park, said exposed patches of ground visible from the parking lot have probably turned off more than a few would-be skiers. Though ski conditions are pretty good deeper in the forest, only about 35 percent of the trails in the area are open, he said, and the club has been holding back on some trail grooming due to the risk of damaging its groomer. Scott Meredith tried taking his four kids out for a bit of skiing Thursday at Meissner, but turned back barely a quarter mile from the parking lot due to icy conditions. “There’s sections where it’s like a hockey rink,” he said. Pine Mountain Sports general manager Mark Campbell said the weather seems to be discouraging new and less committed skiers and snowshoers. Sales of new equipment have been good, Campbell said, but gear rentals are down by close to 80 percent. To protect its equipment, the shop has long had a policy

Ivy League Continued from A1 The Ivy League does not award athletic scholarships, but led by endowment-rich members like Harvard, Yale and Princeton, the conference has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in additional need-based aid — with most of the universities all but eliminating student loans and essentially doubling the size of grants meant for middle-income families. The financial aid enhancements have had a profound effect on the quality of athletic recruits. Rosters are now fortified with top athletes who would have spurned the Ivy League in the past because they would have been asked to pay $20,000 to $30,000 per year more than at other colleges. “We’re seeing a significant change in the caliber of the student athlete,” said Steve Bilsky, the University of Pennsylvania’s athletic director, one of more than 50 Ivy League administrators and coaches interviewed. “It’s not even the same population because the pool has widened. We see a considerable number of studentathletes turning down athletic scholarships from places like Stanford, Northwestern or Duke to come to Penn.” Andy Noel, Cornell’s athletic director, said: “Eighty percent of our best recruits in the current freshman class would not have come here 10 years ago because we couldn’t match other schools’ offers. The impact has been enormous. And will continue to be.” A recruited Ivy League athlete must have the academic credentials to survive the stringent and highly selective admissions process at each institution. Coaches have little sway in the admissions process, although they do provide a list of potential athletes to admissions officials. Across the league, about 13 percent of each university’s incoming class is composed of athletes chosen from coaches’ lists. But the new, plentiful financial aid awards have permitted Ivy League coaches to compete head-to-head in the same recruiting arena as some bigtime scholarship programs.

against renting downhill gear until Mt. Bachelor has a base of 40 inches, Cambpell said, but it was recently abandoned just to get the rental business moving. “Everyone’s enjoying the cold weather and enjoying the snow we do have and trying to make the best of a bad situation. ... Mother Nature’s playing a cruel joke,” Campbell said.

A good time for golf? Businesses that can accommodate a variety of conditions are finding ways to weather the lack of winter weather. Rocky Adrianson, hotel manager of The Riverhouse, said while the mild weather has depressed ski tourism at his hotel, the number of people coming to the area for midwinter golf is up. “We are selling ‘You can ski in the morning and play golf in the afternoon,’ ” he said. Troy Eckberg, director of golf for The River’s Edge course at the Riverhouse, said it’s been “summer in December” on the golf course. The course has seen roughly 80 players a day this month, he said, compared with an average of around 30 players a day in past years. Jim Stone, owner of Sunriver Sports, said due to warmerthan-normal conditions, bike rentals and ski rentals have been neck-and-neck through December. Stone said he suspects most visitors to the area plan their vacation weeks or months in advance, and adapt to the weather once they arrive. Stone said he’s usually done most of his December business during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, and expects to do the same this year if the weather cooperates. “I think we need more snow,” Stone said. “We definitely need to get more of the mountain open, but we can’t control that.”

And in sports like baseball, soccer, wrestling or lacrosse, where most athletic scholarships are split into partial scholarships worth a half or a quarter of the cost to attend school, it is not uncommon for an Ivy League financial aid package to be superior to the athletic scholarship. At most Ivy League institutions, families earning less than about $65,000 annually are now asked to make no contribution to their children’s education. Families making $65,000 to $180,000 might be expected to pay 10 percent to 18 percent of their annual income on a sliding scale. Ten years ago, such families would have been expected to pay almost twice as much, and their child would probably have accumulated a debt of about $25,000 after four years. The current guidelines vary from institution to institution, but each Ivy League member has significantly increased aid packages to align similarly and has shown noteworthy largess. And in another unprecedented move, a vast majority will match the aid package offered by another Ivy League member. That makes the financial aid awards in the Ivy League generally the most generous of any group of colleges or universities in the United States. “When I was a senior in high school, I had about 20 basketball scholarship offers from all over,” said Shonn Miller, now a star 6-foot-7 freshman forward at Cornell. “But when they said I could come to Cornell for $2,000 a year, it made my decision pretty easy. I mean, are you kidding me? “With the finances out of the way, a lot of good players are taking the education, the prestige and the athletics in one package.” Christian Webster, the second-leading scorer on Harvard’s basketball team last season, made the same choice even when the cost to attend Harvard was $20,000 a year, including room and board. “It’s a sacrifice, but it’s doable,” said Webster, a junior who was Maryland’s high school player of the year in 2009 and had about 25 full athletic scholarship offers. “It’s

Hotels are hanging in At the Phoenix Inn Suites in downtown Bend, room occupancy this month is around 52 percent, down from 60 percent in December 2010, said Tom Penn, the hotel’s general manager. But this week looks better than Christmas week last year, he said. “It’s definitely not stellar, but it’s not as bad as I thought it would be with the snow not being here,” he said. Both The Oxford hotel in downtown Bend and the Seventh Mountain Resort are on target to exceed their occupancy numbers from last December. Sales of ski packages are down at The Oxford, but at Seventh Mountain Resort, ski package sales are in line with past years, said Vanessa Berning, director of sales and marketing. Berning said it appears outof-towners aren’t bothered by less-than-ideal conditions. “It’s different if you live here and you expect those 14 inches of snow and fresh powder,” she said. “The people that are coming are OK with skiing groomed runs.” Goggins said Mt. Bachelor’s electronic ticketing system tells a similar story. Single ticket sales match up favorably with last year, he said, but season pass holders appear content to stay home until the snow flies. At Meissner Sno-park Thursday, Mike Beall said he was satisfied with trail conditions. Instead of skis, Beall brought his mountain bike, an all-terrain model with balloon-like 4-inch tires, and found the icy hardpack ideal for a ride to Swampy Lakes and back. Beall said his skis will come out this year, but maybe not until the snow flies. “I’m waiting for the powder,” he said. — Reporter: 541-383-0387, Rachael Rees and Jordan Novet contributed to this report.

not free, but it’s also not the full price of $50,000 or more. To me, it was a 40-year life decision, not a four-year decision.” Around the Ivy League, financial aid initiatives adopted in the past few years and directed at all students have significantly altered the decisionmaking of as many as 700 top recruited athletes. The Ivy League gradually stepped away from the upper tier of college athletic competition beginning in the late 1950s, most conspicuously in football. As other larger universities gave away thousands of athletic scholarships and relaxed admissions standards for superior athletes, the Ivies retreated to focus on play against peer institutions with similar academic and athletic philosophies. Regional and national team championships were still won but more rarely, especially in major sports. For decades thereafter, if elite athletes were also standout students, they were increasingly lured away by places like Notre Dame, Vanderbilt or Duke, which offered athletic scholarships and academic excellence. “It got to the point where the only elite athletes we could reasonably recruit were either relatively poor or very wealthy,” said Rob Koll, Cornell’s wrestling coach for the last 19 years. “That’s because in either case, money was out of the equation. One kid was going to get full aid from us and the other kid’s family wasn’t much concerned by the cost.

Lawmakers return to Salem in February for a monthlong legislative session that is likely to be dominated by budget discussions. Gov. John Kitzhaber has ordered state agencies to freeze most hiring, limit spending and stop new enrollments in some health and daycare services for people with low incomes. Economists have projected that Oregon will take in $300 million less than they predicted when lawmakers built a $14.6 billion spending plan for the current two-year budget cycle. Opponents of tax hikes on the wealthy have argued that Oregon’s comparatively high income taxes discourage business investments that create jobs and grow the economy. “We’ve made the argument all along: The rate, even at the lower level, remains very high,” said Duncan Wyse, president of the Oregon Business Council. Measure 66 stemmed from Democrats’ efforts

able amount of precipitation fell in Bend was on Nov. 23, said Diana Hayden, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Pendleton. “It’s been pretty dry,” she said. Storm systems are expected to start rolling over Bend again soon, with the first expected to bring a slight chance of rain Sunday turning into a slight

chance of snow Sunday night. Another, stronger storm system is expected Tuesday, Hayden said. It could bring a quarter of an inch of precipitation, possibly in the form of snow. Perhaps the storms will signal a turn to the usual. Winter officially started Thursday.

to minimize cuts to services while balancing the state budget in 2009. Republicans and business groups protested, collecting enough signatures to send the tax hike to the ballot in January 2010. Voters approved it, along with separate provision known as Measure 67, which raised corporate taxes. For the 2012 tax year and beyond, the state’s highest personal income tax rate will be 9.9 percent. The highest rate has been 11 percent for the last three years, and it was 9 percent before Measure 66 was enacted. Continuing with the current rates would require approval from three-fifths of lawmakers in the House and Senate, and the governor’s signature. The requirement was a tough burden to meet in a House evenly split between Republicans and Democrats and a Senate where Democrats have a slim majority. Unlike 2009

when Democrats had supermajorities in both chambers, a tax hike next year would require bipartisan support. “I think the people of Oregon are expecting us to go in there and continue to find ways to improve government efficiency and have government live within their own means,” said Rep. Kevin Cameron of Salem, the Republican leader. “There’s no tax increases on the horizon.” Rep. Tina Kotek of Portland, the Democratic leader, didn’t rule it out, said Amelia Porterfield, her chief of staff. “We’re going to look under every rock to avoid deeper cuts, and part of that is keeping all options on the table for February,” Porterfield said.

MOSCOW — The sweeping measures that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev proposed Thursday to loosen the Kremlin’s tight grasp over political life indicates the deep anxiety that government leaders have about demonstrations that have shaken their country in recent weeks. But few protesters were satisfied with his plan. In his final state-of-the-nation address to Russia’s parliament, Medvedev unveiled a set of changes that would have been unimaginable just weeks ago, proposing policies that would make it easier to run for president and register a political party.

ATLANTA — A federal judge Thursday blocked the most controversial parts of South Carolina’s new immigration law from taking effect next month. The decision, by Judge Richard Gergel of U.S. District Court in Charleston, S.C., sets the stage for a showdown on immigration as the U.S. Supreme Court prepares

Pneumatic bladders But perhaps where the district will have the most cost control is with optional pneumatic bladders that can adjust the flow rates as well as the size and shape of the rapids. Bruce Ronning, the Park District planning and development director, said these devices look like hinged metal doors that lie on the river bottom. With the use of controls along the bank,

Where’s the funding? The district does not now have any money set aside for the project, but it has been working with the nonprofit Bend Paddle Trail Alliance, which has been involved in

some fundraising efforts. The project has also been discussed as a possible candidate for a future bond measure. The lack of funding, however, has not equated to a lack of support. Many entities are urging the district to move ahead, not only because it can reduce the number of rescue calls to the spillway, but because those groups believe it would be a boon to the local economy. Among the groups that have sent the park district support letters are Economic Development for Central Oregon, Visit Bend and the Bend Economic Development Advisory Board. Doug Knight, the vice chair of the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance, cited these letters when addressing the Park District Board of Directors during a meeting this week to discuss the project. He said the spillway modifications have the potential to have a direct impact on Bend’s economy because it can be used as a draw not only for tourists, but also for kayaking competitions. No other projects the district currently has on the horizon can have this level of financial benefit, he said. “What we do when we build this project is we build a recreation destination,” Knight told the park district directors. “And that destination is unparalleled in our community except when considering Mt. Bachelor.” — Reporter: 541-633-2160,

Colorado Avenue spillway modification The Bend Park & Recreation District believes it will cost between $3.5 million and $4.9 million to modify the Colorado Avenue dam spillway to allow boaters and floaters safe passage Tumalo Ave. past the potentially dangerous Deschutes River obstacle. One of the options the district must consider is whether to Colorado Ave. include adjustable pneumatic bladders spillway that can adjust the flow of water as well Arizona Ave. as the size of the rapids. Several habitat improvement options also must be e. S weighed. Below is a general concept of hev li what the completed project could look like, including the placement of divider walls, or islands. Wa ll Bo St. nd St.

Continued from A1 Much of the increased cost is associated with replacing the pedestrian bridge that runs parallel to Colorado Avenue. That bridge would be between 290 and 330 feet long, and be at least 6 feet off the water to give standup paddleboarders enough headroom. Its price tag ranges from $1.65 million to $1.87 million. In addition to the bridge, there’s a need for more material to build the dividing walls, or “islands,” that would separate the three segments of the project. After some hydraulic modeling, the engineering firm studying the project found that the islands needed to be taller to avoid going underwater during typical summer flows.

these doors could be opened or closed by inflating or deflating a bladder underneath the doors like a balloon. “The main reason for the inflatable bladder is to control and shape the whitewater experience below the dam,” Ronning said. “Essentially, you’re just adjusting the size of the rock in the river.” He said the bladders could be included in any of the options the district decides to pursue, and the devices could be implemented in a number of ways. He said the bladders could be placed only at the top of the rapids, or they could be installed at each successive drop through the tiered whitewater play area. The bladders can also be adjusted on a schedule where the rapids change during various times of the day, which would allow both novices and experts to use the whitewater feature. “It has a big range of possibilities,” Ronning said. “For instance, you could have a rather gentle descent through there during parts of the day, and at other parts of the day you could make it more technical and more challenging for kayakers.”

to hear a challenge to a similar law in Arizona. Gergel blocked the most contentious part of South Carolina’s law, which required law enforcement officials to check the immigration status of any suspect they believe may be in the country illegally. He also blocked provisions that made it a crime to harbor or transport an illegal immigrant.

BEIRUT — Delegates from the Arab League traveled to Syria on Thursday to see whether the government of President Bashar Assad keeps its promises to withdraw heavy military weapons from Syria’s cities and start a dialogue with the government’s opponents. The delegation’s arrival is the first step in a planned deployment of hundreds of outside observers. Meanwhile, human rights activists reported continuing violence in the Jabal Zawiya area of northwestern Syria, near the Turkish border. At least 160 people have been killed over the past four days, activists said.

CAIRO — Prime Minister Kamal el-Ganzouri pleaded on Thursday for peace in the streets in order to stanch the economic damage to the Egyptian economy. El-Ganzouri was responding to the nearly two months of protests against military rule that were interrupted by about three weeks of peace as Egyptians voted in the early rounds of the first parliamentary elections since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. The military, however, has waged a brutal crackdown on demonstrators, reinforcing fears that they aim to keep power. Over the last week military police and security forces have wounded hundreds of demonstrators, humiliated women by ripping off their clothes, attacked doctors in field clinics, and killed at least 17 people. Most died of gunshot wounds.

ROME — Italy’s Senate voted overwhelmingly to give final approval Thursday to a $40 billion austerity and growth package aimed at eliminating Italy’s budget deficit by 2013 and stimulating the economy as part of a broader plan to stabilize the euro. Although it has a parliamentary majority, the monthold technocratic government of Prime Minister Mario Monti called a confidence vote on the measures to avoid having to address scores of modifications proposed by the Northern League, once a pillar of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s center-right coalition and now the loudest opposition party. The measures — which have grown increasingly unpopular as the reality sets in for Italians — reinstate a property tax on first homes, among other tax increases; raise the retirement age to 66 for men and 62 for women by 2012; and raise the ceiling for cash transactions to $1,300, among other measures to crack down on tax evasion.

Tensions grow between Iraq, Exxon Mobil over oil projects By Andrew E. Kramer and Julia Werdigier New York Times News Service

The turmoil in Iraq after the U.S. troop withdrawal is extending to its vital petroleum industry. The U.S. oil giant Exxon Mobil and its partners are embroiled in a $50 million payment dispute with the Iraqi government over an oil field in southeastern Iraq

that the companies are upgrading and modernizing. The Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri alMaliki is also unhappy with Exxon over a separate development deal the company has struck with the leaders of the semiautonomous Kurdistan region in northern Iraq. The Iraqi government’s failure to pay Exxon, the

only U.S. oil company operating in southern Iraq, for nearly two years of work underscores the perils for Western companies seeking to do business there. The government has not explained why it has withheld the payments. Any perception that the Iraqi government will not honor its oil contracts could also send ripples beyond

Iraq to international markets worried about disruptions in petroleum supplies. Iraq is expected to ramp up oil production faster than any other country in the next 25 years, adding 5 million barrels of oil per day of capacity by 2035, more than traditional leaders like Saudi Arabia, according to the International Energy Agency.

FCC seeks to ease rule on media ownership By Brian Stelter New York Times News Service

The Federal Communications Commission is preparing to relax a longstanding rule that limits the ability of companies to own both a newspaper and a television or radio station in the same local market. The proposal, which was challenged in court the last time it came up, was the most contentious piece of updating of the nation’s media ownership rules. Congress requires the FCC to review the rules every four years. Public interest groups and a departing member of the commission, Michael Copps, expressed concerns that the newspaper-broadcast rule change could cause more consolidation in the media industry, in which round after round of stations have been sold to bigger companies.

Stores remove infant formula after boy dies By William Neuman New York Times News Service

Economic index shows gains A gauge of future economic activity posted a solid increase in November, providing further evidence that the economy is gaining strength. The Conference Board said Thursday that its index of leading economic indicators rose 0.5 percent in November following a 0.9 percent gain in October. Economists said the two months of solid gains in the index signaled that the economy was gaining momentum and the risks of a recession were receding.

Taking a local business to a global marketplace • Bend Mailing Services is making the shift from bulk mail to online billing, enabling it to serve companies overseas By Rachael Rees The Bulletin

To keep up with the evolution of mailing, Bend Mailing Services is going global with online billing. “It used to be the Pony Express, then it went to trains,” said Sam Di Spaltro, coowner of the family-owned mailing business. “Now it’s going from the post office to online.” In 1997, Bend Mailing Services was

a small company whose business was centered around sending out bulk mail. When Sam Di Spaltro’s son, Nick Di Spaltro, joined the team five years later, he developed software enabling the company to perform paper billing services across the nation. Now, the company, located on Southeast Paiute Way, is taking its services a step further, using online billing technology to reach an overseas marketplace. “A lot of what we do is from a standpoint

of quantities,” Nick Di Spaltro said. “If you’re in an area and you’ve already gotten most of the people, you’ve got to branch out.” Nick, 31, said the company went to online billing two years ago, which has allowed the company to expand internationally with only minor adjustments. “The only real big difference was currency,” he said. “The core system is the same for both local and international.” Along with system modifications, Nick and Web developer Nickolas Meyers worked on developing online billing sites for companies.

Two major retail chains, including Wal-Mart, have removed certain packages of Enfamil, a popular brand of infant formula, from thousands of stores after a Missouri infant who consumed the product died from a rare bacterial infection. The action by Wal-Mart and Supervalu, which owns supermarket chains like Acme and Jewel, was highly unusual because there had been no determination by authorities that the formula was to blame for the child’s death, and neither the manufacturer nor federal officials had sought a recall. Shares of Mead Johnson Nutrition, which manufactures Enfamil, fell more than 20 percent intraday Thursday as news about the situation spread. The stock partly recovered by the end of the day, closing at $68.76, down 10 percent. See Formula / B2



A heyday for bargain hunters By Stephanie Clifford New York Times News Service

Half off at the entire store at Ann Taylor. Sixty percent at Gap. Forty percent off almost everything at Abercrombie & Fitch. Aggressive last-minute deals in the days before Christmas are good for procrastinators but could be an alarm bell for the retail industry. While scattered markdowns are standard every year, discounts across entire stores — which analysts say are more widespread than last year — suggest merchants are stuck with too much merchandise. “It’s really a game of chicken,” said David Bassuk, managing director and head of the retail practice at the consultant firm AlixPartners. Many retailers entered the

M   Number of Texas cows plunges By Molly Hennessy-Fiske Los Angeles Times

HOUSTON — Blame the long-running drought in Texas for the largest singleyear decline in the state’s cow herd, which experts say is likely to drive up beef prices. Since January, the number of cows in Texas is expected to have decreased by about 600,000 — a 12 percent drop from about 5 million cows. That’s according to David Anderson, a livestock economist in College Station who monitors beef markets for the Texas AgriLife Extension Service. The trend is likely the largest drop in the number of cows any state has ever seen, Anderson said. Texas only had a larger percentage decline during the Great Depression. “Every cow they sold this year isn’t going to be around to have a calf next year,� he said. “It means a smaller industry next year and probably the year after.� Anderson said many cows were temporarily moved to greener pastures out of state, but many others were sold and slaughtered. He said that in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Louisiana and Arkansas, 20 percent more cows were slaughtered than last year, about 200,000. That extra supply could help meet increased beef demand from China and other countries, but will mean fewer calves in the near future, driving up beef prices domestically over time, he said. Anderson said beef production nationally is expected to decline 4 percent next year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates beef prices will increase up to 5.5 percent next year, partly due to the decreased cattle supply. That follows a 9 percent increase in beef prices in this year. Texas ranchers say they were forced to sell cattle, slaughter them or send them to leased land this year as the drought withered pastures and drove up the price of hay and feed.

Discounts Continued from B1 Shoppers are filling their holiday lists against the backdrop of an uncertain year, with stubbornly high unemployment, increased food prices, volatile gas prices and unpredictability from the stock market and Europe’s debt crisis. The government Thursday said that thirdquarter economic growth had not been as brisk as it previously estimated, because of a drop in consumer spending on services like health care. Toys R Us on Thursday announced new deals on dozens of items for Friday and Saturday, including “buy one, get one half off� on popular toys like Legos. A sampling of other promotions: Up to 70 percent off toys at Amazon; up to 50 percent off gifts at Restoration Hardware; 40 percent off almost everything at American Eagle Outfitters, Talbots, Limited and Wet Seal; and 30 percent off everything at J.Crew. “There’s been kind of a waiting game with retailers,� Gerald Storch, the chief executive of Toys R Us, told CNBC last week. “And it looks like the consumer wins.� Paul Lejuez, an analyst at

Formula Continued from B1 The Food and Drug Administration said it was testing samples of the formula, Enfamil Premium Newborn powder, that it had obtained from the family of the dead child, Avery Cornett. Officials asserted that there was no immediate indication that the formula had been contaminated. A Wal-Mart spokeswoman said that the company learned Sunday night of the baby’s death and that his parents had fed him formula bought at the chain’s store in Lebanon, Mo. Monday, the company decided to pull all containers of the formula that had come from the same manufacturing lot from the shelves of its stores. “As a precautionary measure, we made a company decision to remove the specific lot of the product from our store shelves nationwide,� said Dianna Gee, the WalMart spokeswoman. “We’re not saying the product’s unsafe.� Wal-Mart identified the product consumed by the baby who died as Enfamil Premium Newborn powdered infant formula in a 12.5ounce container, with the lot number ZP1K7G printed on

ahead of sales growth, there is a need to be more promotional to move the goods,� Lejuez said. Although sales over Thanksgiving weekend were surprisingly strong, Lejuez said they seemed to have cut into shopping that more typically would occur in December. Sales were sluggish the first two weeks after Thanksgiving, although they improved in the third week, according to the International Council of Shopping Centers. In email inboxes, the promotional cadence is rapid. Retailers sent about 5.6

emails each last week on average, according to the email marketer Responsys. That was a 26 percent increase over the same week last year and matched the record high hit during the week of Cyber Monday this year. Stores including Macy’s and Toys R Us are offering 24-hour shopping in the days before Christmas, and many stores moved “Super Saturday,� a promotion that falls on the final Saturday before Christmas, back a week hoping to spur sales. The deals are a boon for people who have put off shopping. “Last-minute Christmas shopping,� posted a Twitter user named Samra Tekeste. “Literally everything is on sale, LOL knew my procrastination would come in handy some day.� The big discounts mean that retailers are willing to sacrifice profits for revenue. “More and more each year, sales become less of the issue, and it’s more about what retailers have to do to get those,� Lejuez said. “There’s a little more pressure on that out-the-door price than we would have thought, and, I think, what the market would have anticipated.�

She said that the company was holding onto the product and that if it was cleared in the investigation, the company might put it back on sale. Wal-Mart continues to sell other Enfamil products. Wal-Mart said customers who bought Enfamil from the same lot could bring it back and receive a refund or another product in its place. Supervalu said Thursday that it had also received formula from the same lot and was removing it from shelves. Michael Siemienas, a Supervalu spokesman, said the formula might have been shipped to hundreds of its stores around the country, including Jewel, Shaws, Shop ’n Save, Acme, Farm Fresh, Shoppers and some Albertsons supermarkets.

Best Buy can’t fill some online orders for Christmas By David Phelps Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

MINNEAPOLIS — Best Buy gave its online customers just about the worst news possible four days before Christmas: Your order has not been filled. The Richfield, Minn.-based retailer said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that it will not be able to process some of its online orders by Friday, including some made the day after Thanksgiving. “Due to overwhelming demand of hot product offerings on during the November and December time period, we have encountered a situation that has affected redemption of some of our customers’ online orders,� it said. “We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused, and we have notified the affected customers.� It is not clear how many orders have been affected or how large a range of products is involved. Best Buy spokeswoman Lisa Hawks declined to answer questions beyond the statement. Analysts said the episode could prove a significant setback for the company, which already disappointed investors this month with a profit report that wasn’t as strong as expected.

Auto repair shop respects Fort Collins, Colo., needs of female customers touts pioneering engine research

By Bonnie Eslinger Palo Alto (Calif.) Daily News

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Mae de la Calzada vividly remembers the question she fielded as guest speaker at a national convention for auto repair industry professionals. Someone in the audience had asked the owner of LadyParts Automotive Services in Redwood City, Calif., what was so different about the repair shop that she “designed with a woman in mind.” Until then, the focus of the conference had been on how to rake in as much sales revenue as possible. “I’ll tell you one thing I do not do — one thing I don’t think works,” she told the predominately male audience. “When you date a woman, do you walk up to them and say, ‘You better go with me, because I’m the best thing you’ve ever had?’ “That’s what I see — a style to which women do not respond. With a woman, you have to ease your way into it, talk to them, and get them to come to it.” De la Calzada chuckled at the reaction. “That silenced the whole room,” she said. Though she has some doubters — one competitor reportedly told a LadyParts customer that her shop is more style than substance — the rave reviews found online about the business show that de la Calzada has tapped a ripe market. Today most cars are purchased by women, according to Road and Travel Magazine, and 68 percent of them take their vehicles to repair shops. Yet despite having so much purchasing power, 89 percent of women who responded to a nationwide survey said repair shops still treat them like second-class citizens, according to the Car Care Council, an industry organization.

New York Times News Service

Addressing a group of 450 civic leaders at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan on Oct. 3, 1968, the chairman of General Motors, James Roche, did something almost sacrilegious for an auto executive: He talked about a future product. Roche boldly announced that in the fall of 1970, GM would begin producing a small car designed for the U.S. market and priced from $1,900 to $2,300. Developed under the code name XP-887, the subcompact would be about a foot shorter than GM’s smallest offering at the time, the Chevrolet Corvair. And it would, no doubt, be better than that star-crossed and litigation-plagued import fighter from a decade earlier. Roche’s plan was largely a reaction to the commercial threat presented by import brands, which were increasingly attracting young buyers. In 1968, the domestic automakers sold nine out of 10 new cars in America. But import sales were expected to top 1 million in 1969 — a number even Detroit couldn’t ignore. But in answering that challenge, U.S. automakers were by the end of 1970 producing three of the most notoriously awful cars ever built — the American Motors Gremlin, Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto — and opening the door for the Japanese onslaught of the 1970s and 1980s. The new models were so terrible that even 40 years later, some shoppers still won’t consider Detroit’s brands. Their flaws made for cars that comedians would savage, liability lawyers would chase and crestfallen owners would try to pawn off on unsuspecting victims. “Led by General Motors, the giant domestic auto industry was going to flex its muscle and swat the pesky fly of imported cars off its shoulder,” John DeLorean, the former Chevrolet

At the university lab

Friendly atmosphere

The Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory here, part of Colorado State University’s school of mechanical engineering, was founded 20 years ago by Bryan Willson. The results of its work, especially in fuel injection and ignition systems, have been adopted by major industry suppliers like Delphi, Bosch and Eaton, component providers to auto, truck and industrial engine makers. Work at the laboratory also involves emerging technologies — smart grids, electric vehicle components, alternative fuels and new twists on conventional drivetrains — that will be vital for transportation systems of the future. Bringing this work to market will require a new approach. “With such a diversity of new technologies, you are starting to see expertise emerge and new businesses form in places like Silicon Valley, Austin and Colorado,” Willson said. “I expect much of this will not happen in Detroit.” Many startups, hoping to commercialize these new technologies, have already formed or been drawn to the area as a result of pro-

Other companies are choosing to move to the area. One, Czero, is working with the engines laboratory to develop a hydraulic hybrid kit that recovers energy when a vehicle is braking and is particularly suited for vehicles that make frequent stops. “We moved our company from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins because the university and the city have created an amazing atmosphere here, very pro-business and pro-innovation,” said Guy Babbit, chief executive of Czero and director of the newly formed Colorado Engine and Transportation Innovation Cluster. Because demands on the university’s engine research are increasing, it is planning a large addition, expected to begin construction next year. Willson has been approved by the city’s planning commission to rebuild the original smokestacks on the historic Art Deco-style building. But he plans to replace them with wind turbines to generate electricity for the laboratory.

Mae de la Calzada opened LadyParts Automotive Services in Redwood City, Calif., with female customers in mind after she found it difficult herself to get good service in the male-dominated industry.

A negative experience In fact, it was just that kind of treatment that set de la Calzada, 33, on her career path. While a student closing in on a business degree at the University of San Francisco five years ago, she took her Dodge Stratus to the dealer for a vehicle recall repair. But $1,000 later, smoke billowed from the engine as she drove away from the shop. She returned with a man who is now her fiance and asked the service manager to show her the repairs made. “He said, ‘I don’t have time to show you,’ ” de la Calzada said. “Then he looks at my boyfriend like, ‘It’s not like she will understand.’ ” A month later, while negotiating repairs for her mother’s car, she encountered the same dismissive attitude. An entrepreneurship class at USF allowed her to explore

her idea about opening an auto shop that caters to women. “This was something I wanted and I wanted my mom to have,” she said. Three years ago, LadyParts opened its doors. These days about half her customers are women, de la Calzada said. She has three mechanics — two men and one woman. LadyParts’ approach appeals to both genders, she said.

A positive experience De la Calzada said employees are trained to take time when talking to customers about their cars and repairs. De la Calzada discourages the team from being “too technical” or dominating the discussion. “I really emphasize the listening,” she said. Redwood City resident Lorri Lee Lown, 46, said she felt respected when she brought

her 2011 Honda Element to LadyParts for some routine maintenance. “I’ve never had a positive experience at any kind of automotive service provider (before),” she said. “I feel like I should just walk in with my checkbook and let them take whatever they want.” LadyParts also offers free car care clinics, mostly attended by women, that provide an overview of the workings and maintenance needs of a vehicle. Then there’s the waiting room, painted in warm colors with art on the walls, a cushy couch and a children’s play area. The reading selection includes Oprah Winfrey’s O magazine as well as Men’s Health. “If you’re stressed out when you walk in, you feel like it’s a space to take care of you,” de la Calzada said.

Automakers still fighting subcompact stigma By John Pearley Huffman

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — In the world of computers, Silicon Valley is recognized as the spawning ground of technology startups. For financial institutions, Lower Manhattan has long been the place to set up shop. And, of course, Detroit has historically served as the epicenter of U.S. automaking, evolving in recent times from a manufacturing center to a headquarters city. Still, there is no guarantee that its dominance is permanent. Among the places vying to become a nexus of automotive development is this college town of 140,000 at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, some 1,300 miles from the Motor City. Already it has earned a reputation as one of the country’s leading engine and transportation research centers, digging into the dirty business of civilizing some of the industry’s biggest and least sophisticated engines.

grams sponsored by the city of Fort Collins in collaboration with local companies. The goal, according to Josh Birks, the city’s economic adviser, is to build a critical mass of clean tech and transportation-related businesses. This transformation started with a competition. In 1990, General Motors, with the Energy Department as a co-sponsor, challenged 25 engineering schools around the country in a program that converted GMC 2500 Sierra pickups to run on natural gas. Though the Colorado State University team did not win the competition, placing second, the technology it developed proved useful for a fleet of natural gas hybrid buses operating in Denver. From that experience, Willson took away a guiding principle that would inform his future work. “We didn’t want to just conduct experiments or write papers and have them sit on a shelf,” he said. “We wanted to have impact, so what we do here is the messy work to make sure these innovations actually become products.”

By Jim Witkin

general manager, wrote in his 1979 book “On a Clear Day You Can See General Motors.” The Gremlin, Vega and Pinto were small enough to compare directly with the import standard bearer of the time, the Volkswagen Beetle. All three of the domestic entries were conventional designs — shrunken versions of the era’s gargantuan sedans — with their engines in front driving the rear wheels.

1969, it was obvious that the Vega was in real trouble,” DeLorean wrote. “General Motors was pinning its image and prestige on this car, and there was practically no interest in it in the division.” Chevrolet had proposed its own small-car design and was turned down; as production approached, the Chevy staff’s disdain for the corporate model — heavy for its size and more costly to produce — grew. Worst of all, its 4-cylinder engine was an unfortunate mix of innovation and archaic design. The cylinder head was made of cast iron, a conventional practice for the time, but a special aluminum alloy was chosen for the engine block. “What resulted,” DeLorean wrote, “was a relatively large, noisy, top-heavy combination of aluminum and iron, which cost far too much to build, looked like it had been taken off a 1920 farm tractor and weighed more than the cast-iron engine Chevy had proposed, or the foreign-built 4-cylinder engine the Ford Pinto was to use.”

Shifting culture

‘Something has to give’

GM’s ambitions for the XP887, which would become the Vega, were huge. Instead of being developed by the engineering staff of a single brand, the Vega was designed by the corporate engineering staff under the direction of Edward Cole, an executive vice president. It was then handed to Chevrolet’s managers to sell. The Vega would be an allnew car unrelated to any other in GM’s portfolio, using an allnew engine, and it would be built at the company’s newest, most automated plant, in Lordstown, Ohio. “The Vega came just as the bean counters were rising at GM,” said John Heitmann, a professor of history at the University of Dayton, about GM’s changing corporate culture. “From the first day I stepped into the Chevrolet division, in

Like the Vega, the 1971 Pinto was engineered to a tough $2,000 price point with an equally tough 2,000-pound weight goal. The base engine was a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder rated at 75 horsepower; a 100-horsepower 2-liter 4 was optional. “The Pinto is rolling proof of an economic fact of life,” a 1971 car test in The New York Times observed. “In building an American car for the $2,000 market something has to give. Pinto disappoints in acceleration, braking, ride quality and rear-seat comfort.” American Motors, though much smaller than Ford and GM, decided that despite its scant resources it needed a small car to retain the budgetminded buyers who had been loyal Rambler owners. It was forced to punt. Instead of engineering a new

“From the first day I stepped into the Chevrolet division, in 1969, it was obvious that the Vega was in real trouble. General Motors was pinning its image and prestige on this car, and there was practically no interest in it in the division.” — John DeLorean, former Chevrolet general manager

car, the company’s design chief, Dick Teague, took the existing Hornet compact car, knocked 12 inches out of its wheelbase (down to 96 inches) and eliminated virtually all of the sheet metal beyond the rear wheels. The awkwardly proportioned result was named the Gremlin. The biggest advantage for American Motors of this simplified product development scheme was that the Gremlin reached the market in April 1970, about five months before the Vega and Pinto. Lacking the resources to develop a 4-cylinder engine, AMC resorted to installing either 3.3- or 3.8-liter versions of the Rambler in-line 6 in the Gremlin. Weirdly unbalanced, the nose-heavy Gremlin was primitive even in the context of the early 1970s. It was noisy and handled poorly — and like every AMC product suffered from haphazard quality control.

A giant letdown The problem wasn’t that the Vega, Pinto and Gremlin didn’t sell. Kept alive by their makers through the ’70s fuel crises, they sold by the millions over long production lives that covered much of the ’70s. The disaster was that they let down so many Americans. In 1968 Toyota, Datsun and VW were more of a nuisance than a threat, and Honda was still a year away from selling its first car in the United States. But by 1980, partly because of the door left open to them by the failed Detroit subcompacts, those imports were firmly established as value leaders. “The Pinto, Gremlin and Vega represented everything that Toyota was not,” said Heitmann, the historian. Four decades later, Detroit is still fighting the perception that it doesn’t take small cars seriously. But with tougher fuel economy rules coming, getting past the stigma of the small ’70s cars is more important than ever.

Bend Mailing Continued from B1 He said the company’s first international customer out of the United Kingdom went live two months ago, but he added that the process to develop product had been under way for about a year. Sam Di Spaltro, 64, said Bend Mailing is working with several companies in the United Kingdom, including a recycling and waste company called Veolia Environmental Services, and one company in Ireland. He said he has already been in contact with other countries in Europe that are interested in Bend Mailing’s services. “Eighty percent of the company is paper and the other 20 percent is online, but we’re growing,” Sam said. Nick estimates that 50,000 online users are registered

FCC Continued from B1 “In the vast majority of cases, I do not believe that newspaper-broadcast cross-ownership advances the public interest,” Copps, a Democrat, said in a statement. “It means fewer voices in the community, less localism in the industry, and steep transactional costs that all too often lead to downsized or shuttered newsrooms and fired journalists. Our media, and our public policy, need to head in a different direction.” The changes to the rule would affect only the 20 most populous markets in the country, where the FCC perceives there to be more competition among media outlets. Commissioner Robert McDowell, a Republican, suggested that the rule is outdated at a time when people increasingly get news on the unregulated Internet. “The notion that broadcasters may distribute their content through radio, television, the Internet, mobile devices and other unforeseen portals, but must be prohibited by law from printing the same content on the medium of newsprint, seems anachronistic at best,” McDowell said in a statement. He suggested that the newspaper-broadcast rule should be loosened further. Already, companies can and do seek waivers to own both a newspaper and a station in the same market. News Corp., for instance, owns The New York Post and two television stations

and 20,000 online payments are received each month. In addition to gaining clientele, Sam said the online option has saved Bend Mailing Services and its clients money. He said the paperless online option eliminates postage, envelope and printing costs. Payments are also received faster, which means their clients get paid faster, he noted. Even in a down economy, Sam said, his business has been able to grow. Businesses still need to send out their bills, he said. Bend Mailing has gone from sending out 24,000 statements a month in 2003 to now approximately 700,000 a month. Sam is hopeful that overseas clients and the online billing option will help the company reach 1 million statements a month in the near future. — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

in the New York City market. Allowing more companies to do so could create new bidders for newspapers, which as a whole have suffered more dramatically than local TV stations in the last decade. The FCC proposed to leave most of the other rules about TV and radio station ownership in place with minor modifications. It intends to continue to cap the number of television and radio stations that a company can own in a single market. It does, however, intend to remove a rule about the crossownership of television and radio stations. The commission invited suggestions about how to ensure that stations continue to supply local news. A federal study presented to the FCC this year about the state of the media found that TV stations have been decreasing their staffs while increasing their volume of news, potentially hindering the quality of that news. When the FCC suggested a similar loosening of the newspaper-broadcast rule in 2007, public interest groups and others fought the proposal and succeeded in having it thrown out by a federal appeals court. At the time, the court faulted the commission for not giving the public sufficient time to comment on the proposal. “The FCC should be working to remedy the mistakes of past administrations — not repeating them,” said Craig Aaron, the chief executive of the media reform group Free Press.

Mortgage rates decline to record low ment. The average 15-year rate matched last week’s previous all-time low of 3.21 percent, according to the McLean, Va.-based mortgage-finance company. The U.S. housing market, under pressure from tight lending standards and foreclosures that depress values, is showing signs of improvement. Purchases of previously owned homes rose to a 10-month high

in November as the inventory of unsold properties shrank to the lowest level in six years, the National Association of Realtors reported Wednesday. “Falling home prices meeting already low interest rates are driving affordability,” said Ellen Zentner, a senior U.S. economist at Nomura Securities International in New York. “Mix that with higher consumer confidence and job growth,

and I can see why home sales appear to be lifting off the bottom.” The U.S. property market still may fall further and not rebound until late 2012 or early 2013, when gains probably won’t match those seen before the housing boom ended in 2006, according to a survey of 109 economists released this week by Seattle-based Zillow Inc.

For it to work, they have to be paid what they are due. “It would certainly serve Iraq’s interests well to have that contract working smoothly,” he added.

fields are in production, and the government has suggested that it would give more lucrative agreements later to companies that helped the country early on. For most of the nearly nine-year war, U.S. government advisers aided Iraqi ministries in negotiating and fulfilling contracts. That tapered off as Iraq assumed more sovereignty. President Barack Obama, in a meeting this month with al-Maliki in Washington, said Iraq was now a country that was “sovereign, self-reliant and democratic.”

A foot in the door

Dealing with delays

Exxon’s 2009 deal with the Iraqi government to improve production in the West Qurna 1 field was never expected to be lucrative under the best of circumstances. The government had agreed to pay Exxon and its partners $1.90 for each additional barrel of oil they pumped after refurbishing the already producing field. The fees would barely be enough to cover the companies’ costs. Other deals between Iraq and foreign oil companies had similar terms. International oil contracts are more typically structured to compensate companies with a percentage from sales or a share of production that takes into account the fluctuating price of oil, so that they can be more profitable for the companies when prices rise. Western oil companies, which were shut out of Iraq’s oil fields for decades under the government of Saddam Hussein, were willing to do the low-profit, technical service deals to get a foot in the door with the new government that was put in place after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Only a few dozen of Iraq’s 80 or so discovered

Exxon and its minority partners in the project — which include the AngloDutch oil giant Shell — increased output in the West Qurna field by more than 10 percent by last March. That was the trigger point for the Iraqi government to begin paying the companies for their work. But the payments have not been made, according to Hans Nijkamp, Shell’s country manager for Iraq. “There are a lot of admintype issues that we’re working through with the government,” Nijkamp said in an interview. He said Shell did not believe the delays were deliberate and that the issues would eventually be resolved. An Exxon Mobil spokesman declined to comment, saying the company has a policy of not discussing commercial matters. The Iraqi government awarded 11 oil and natural gas contracts for fields at auctions beginning in 2008. Two other consortia that won deals and have since raised output by more than 10 percent — those led by BP of Britain

holding payment for the work in the south. Ali al-Fayadh, the deputy chairman of the oil committee in the Iraqi Parliament, said in an interview in his Baghdad office that the government was considering banning Exxon from working in southern Iraq because the company had signed the deal in Kurdistan. A decision has not yet been made, Fayadh said. The government could prohibit Exxon from participating in future auctions or end its contract for West Qurna 1, he said. If that happened, it would mean the only major U.S. oil company operating in Iraq would be expelled on the heels of the United States military’s departure.

NEW YORK — Mortgage rates for 30-year loans dropped to the lowest level on record amid signs the housing market may be set for a turnaround. The average rate for a 30year fixed loan fell to 3.91 percent in the week ended Thursday, the lowest in data dating to 1971, from 3.94 percent, Freddie Mac said in a state-

A divisive deal Faisal Abdullah, a spokesman for Iraq’s deputy prime minister in charge of energy, Hussain al-Shahristani, confirmed in an interview in Baghdad in November that the government owed a payment to the Exxon-led consortium, but he did not characterize it as late. “Exxon has increased output and a small amount of money has not been paid,” Abdullah said. He said the government had not paid Exxon about $50 million, a figure that roughly conforms with estimates by Western oil analysts. Abdullah described the delay in paying America’s largest oil company as bureaucratic and unrelated to the dispute over exploration contracts in Kurdistan that Exxon signed in November. However, that deal has caused great consternation. The central government considers deals in Kurdistan illegal. Without an oil law to split petroleum wealth, these agreements are worsening an already poisonous ethnic divide between Kurds and Arabs, officials in Baghdad say. Abdullah said that Exxon executives had expressed concerns to officials in Baghdad about the profitability of the West Qurna 1 contract before striking the deal in Kurdistan, suggesting that the Texas-based company was dissatisfied with the deal. “They said, ‘We are not getting enough profit from West Qurna 1,’ ” Abdullah said. “But that is not true. It is a very big field.” Iraqi officials say they cautioned Exxon not to sign the deal in Kurdistan, even as they were apparently with-

Oil companies are expected to invest $150 billion in Iraq in the next decade. The payment delay to the Exxon coalition highlights the quandary they face. Though eager to gain access to reserves estimated at 115 billion barrels, the fourthlargest in the world, companies are initially required to invest large sums with only tiny early returns and major risks. Insurgents have not generally targeted their bombs at international oil companies, which are ensconced in wellguarded compounds. But the companies are worried that schisms within the fracturing government would cause the administration of contracts to grind to a halt, delaying payments and regulatory decisions. “We’re entering a period of uncertainty,” said Munton, the Wood Mackenzie analyst. “The last few days do not bode well for political stability in the country.”

LOCAL BRIEFING Group appeals county strategy The nonprofit 1000 Friends of Oregon filed an appeal Wednesday of a new strategy Deschutes County officials voted to adopt in November to attract more employers such as the Facebook data center in Prineville. Pam Hardy, Central Oregon advocate for 1000 Friends, wrote in a news release that the county’s plan, which could be adopted by other local governments, would “open up to 1,900 acres in Central Oregon for large-lot industrial expansion that would require expensive taxpayer-funded road, water and sewer line improvements.� The county’s regional economic opportunity analysis is intended to create an inventory of six large industrial lots in cities across Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties. Supporters have said the strategy is a critical way to attract certain employers.


Insect damage prompts closure of Shevlin span By Nick Grube The Bulletin

If your daily routine involves a trip along Shevlin Park’s six-mile loop trail, you’d better get ready for an adjustment. The Bend Park & Recreation District said it needs to remove the footbridge that crosses Tumalo Creek near Aspen Meadow because it’s in

danger of collapsing. Park District Natural Resources Manager Paul Stell said termites and carpenter ants have ravaged the 15year-old wooden structure, which is near the main Shevlin Park parking lot. “Basically the only thing holding that bridge up is the hand railing at this point,� Stell said.

“People’s runs are going to change a little bit. They’re still going to be able to do a loop run, but they’re just going to have to cross in a different place.� Stell said maintenance crews first noticed the problem when they found a board that appeared to be lifting up and causing a trip hazard. See Shevlin / C2

Caution tape blocks then entrances to the bridge next to Aspen Meadow on Thursday in Bend’s Shevlin Park. The span was closed because of structural failure.


Bend man held on drug charges A Bend man was arrested after attempting to sell prescription medication in front of the Bend Public Library, the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement Team said. Andrew Scott, 20, was arrested on suspicion of possession and delivery of a controlled substance Dec. 13 after he had been the subject of a narcotics investigation. Detectives say Scott was in the process of selling prescription medication pills to another individual in front of the library about 2 p.m. Scott was arrested, and found to be in possession of 85 pain medication pills worth an estimated $1,000.

Fire breaks out at Bend business A fire that broke out at a business in northwest Bend on Thursday morning caused $10,000 in damage, the Bend Fire Department said. The fire occurred at a business on Northwest Hawthorne Avenue and was caused by a boiler unit in the attic. Firefighters responded to a sprinkler water flow alarm around 7:30 a.m. The fire was caused when a heat exchanger failed, emitting flames and igniting a nearby wood panel. A sprinkler head in the attic was activated, and the fire department credits it with limiting damage.

Wyden stands by Deschutes on FEMA payments By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Ryan Brennecke / The Bulletin

Bend Police responded to a report of a bank robbery at Bank of the Cascades at 61250 S. U.S. Highway 97 on Bend’s south end Thursday about 4:50 p.m. The robber (at right), described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 220 to 250 pounds, threatened force against a bank teller and escaped southbound on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Bend Police Lt. Brian Kindel. Kindel said police are not certain what the man tied around his head to conceal his identity, but it may be a scarf or a pair of nylons. Three tracking dogs assisted with the investigation but were unable to locate the robber. As of Thursday night, police were checking with surrounding businesses to see if the robber’s escape was caught on surveillance video. The same bank was robbed in June 2009 by a former Virginia police officer who was arrested a few hours after the robbery spending the stolen money on video poker at a bar in La Pine. — Scott Hammers, The Bulletin

Navy JROTC alternative coming to Bend By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin

Mountain View High School’s Junior ROTC program will shutter at the school year’s end, but Bend-La Pine Schools have recently approved a low-key alternative for next year. The Navy National Defense Cadet Corps will begin next

year. It also is likely to be offered for a few periods at Marshall and Bend high schools. Less demanding than JROTC, the program allows students to take one class without signing up for an entire program. The dress code, too, is more relaxed. The Navy announced the Mountain View pro-

gram would close after this school year because of low enrollment. There are 70 students in JROTC this year. Other JROTC programs have thrived in the region, including at Redmond High School and La Pine High School. Lt. Cmdr. Niels Farner, the unit’s senior instructor, will teach the new program. He

hopes its flexibility will attract more students. The district, he said, approved the new program for a one-year trial. Farner, not the Navy, will pick what classes to offer next year. Classes he is planning include outdoor survival and an introduction to aviation. See JROTC / C2

Sen. Ron Wyden weighed in on behalf of Deschutes County on Tuesday in a disagreement over millions of dollars in grant funds the county received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In fall 2010, FEMA brought work to a halt on three grants totaling $6.7 million that it had awarded for wildfire prevention work in Deschutes, Crook and Klamath counties. FEMA officials said Deschutes County had spent federal money to clear areas that weren’t approved. FEMA wants Deschutes County to return $328,000 in federal funds spent on work outside the agency’s approved areas. County officials appealed to Oregon’s congressional delegation for help in resolving the issue. In a letter to FEMA Administrator William Fugate, Wyden wrote that Deschutes County’s work to lessen the risk of wildfire was “cost effective, new and innovative.� “The county’s work dramatically reduced the danger of wildfires, did so efficiently, and with significant savings for taxpayers,� Wyden wrote. “I urge FEMA to drop its demand for compensation, and award the pending grant to Deschutes County so it can continue its mission to protect county residents from wildfires.� See FEMA / C2

Portland lawyer first to file for coming vacancy on Oregon Court of Appeals By Lauren Dake The Bulletin

SALEM — A Portland lawyer is the first to file for Chief Judge David Brewer’s seat on the Oregon Court of Appeals. Tim Volpert, 55, currently a partner with Davis Wright Tremaine, is hoping to take the seat being vacated by Brewer, who is making a bid for the Oregon Supreme Court. “A lot of appellate judges are appointed by the governor,� he said. “I’m (looking forward) to meeting people around the state, hearing what they have to say. It’s a unique opportunity for a would-be judge.� Volpert successfully argued a case before the U.S. Su-

preme Court on behalf of the Vernonia School District. The court ruled in 1995 that high school athletes could be subject to random drug testing under the Constitution. The Oregon Court of Appeals hears almost all appellate cases from Oregon circuit courts, which can include civil, criminal, land use and workers’ compensations cases, according to Lora Keenan, a spokeswoman for the courts. Some exceptions include tax cases and death row cases, which go directly to the Oregon Supreme Court. There are 10 judges on the court, each elected for a six-year term. The position is nonpartisan. Two other seats are open,

and both of the judges now serving in those positions have filed for another term. Judges are paid $122,820. The chief judge receives $125,688. “We’re very busy. We have between 3,000 and 4,000 filings a year and issue between 400 and 500 authored opinions,� Keenan said. “We’re one of the busiest appellate courts in the country.� The court hears arguments in Salem. Volpert attended Earlham College in Richmond, Ind., where he received a bachelor’s degree in political science in 1978. He earned his law degree from Willamette University in 1981.

STREAMS OF LIGHT Aiden McCoy, of Bend, took this picture in August with some friends. He said they went outside with glowsticks, light-up flying discs and other glowing items and threw them around for a 30-second exposure with a very high f-stop. After about 30 tries, the group achieved a desirable composition.

PRAYER ON CAMPUS? McCoy snapped this photo of a praying mantis on a sidewalk at Summit High School in September. McCoy said he got up close and used a very low f-stop to get a narrow depth of field. Both photos were taken with a Nikon D5000.

FEMA Continued from C1 Wyden’s letter was good news for county Commissioners Tony DeBone and Tammy Baney. “I definitely thank the senator for his support, and there’s been a lot of good communication up and down the chain, and I’m glad we’re on the same page,� DeBone said. “We’ve got a real engaged group of citizens and neighborhood representatives that take fuel reduction — and now wildfire — seriously, so it’s a shame we got at a crossroads

with this grant.� Baney was also pleased with Wyden’s letter. “I have been encouraged all along that the congressional offices are engaged in seeking a resolution and was happy to read from Wyden’s office that they are urging FEMA to shift gears and essentially recognize the work that Deschutes County has done, that we’ve been doing more for less, and essentially allow us to get back to work.� A FEMA spokesman could not be reached for comment late Thursday afternoon. Wyden wrote that the scope

of work FEMA provided to Deschutes County was unclear “as to whether the description of acreage was a ceiling or a floor.� County officials also hope to meet with FEMA staff in early January, when Baney is scheduled to travel to Washington, D.C., in her role as president of the Oregon Association of Counties. If a meeting with FEMA is scheduled, County Forester Joe Stutler plans to travel with Baney to provide technical expertise, Stutler said recently.

they also realized the board they thought was lifting was an optical illusion. That’s because the bridge was sagging. The district closed the bridge to foot traffic Thursday and intends to remove it today. It’s still unknown when a new bridge will be built or how much it will cost.

“I’m hoping we can get that done in the next two or three months,� Stell said. “But we can’t really say right now.� Until the bridge is fixed, trail users can use the Larch Bridge or covered bridge to cross the creek.

Continued from C1 “I’m happy that people might otherwise have not come into my classroom now will come into my classroom,� Farner said. The program is more flexible largely because the Navy does not fund it as heavily as it does NJROTC. Next year, for example, the district will pay about $70,000 for Farner’s salary and benefits, he said. Under NJROTC, the Navy would have paid a portion of that cost. Farner plans to defray costs by using many of the same materials, from textbooks to rifles, in the new program as he did this year. Fundraising will also cover costs that include team travel to competitions. The district, though, wants Farner to enroll more than 150 students to prove satisfactory interest in the new program. Farner believes he’ll hit that target. The program now has two instructors, but next year Farner will work alone and have less time for more students. “You’re going to lose some of that personal mentoring,� he said. Even with that drawback, Keith Anton is thrilled about the new program. Anton’s son already graduated from Mountain View’s NJROTC, and his daughter will do so this school year. Having something in place is important for the school, Anton said. His children have become more assured teenagers and adults because of NJROTC, and Anton believes that will continue to happen under the new program. “We are such big proponents of the program. We believe in what they teach. We believe in the values they teach,� Anton said. — Reporter: 541-633-2161,

Panel to decide on exceptions to hiring freeze

Coos Bay is granted dredging permit COOS BAY — The state has granted the Port of Coos Bay the dredging permit it needs to build a new marine terminal on the North Spit that could be used by ships carrying liquefied natural gas. The permit granted Wednesday by the Department of State Lands is one of many needed before the controversial Jordan Cove LNG project and a related pipeline can go forward. Opponents of the proposed pipeline have argued that the department should deny the permit. They cited the state attorney general’s efforts to deny federal approval for an LNG export terminal based on arguments that shipping gas overseas would raise prices in Oregon. In approving the permit, the department said improving Coos Bay shipping facilities is a top economic priority, even if the LNG terminal is never built.

Some protesters hold out in Eugene EUGENE — Some campers at Occupy Eugene are beginning to comply with orders to leave a city park, although others say they’ll try to stay. The Eugene Register-Guard said its reporter was turned away from a meeting Wednesday that the Occupy group recommended on its website for those who planned to engage in civil disobedience. About 150 people were reported at the downtown encampment as the City Council, alarmed by fighting in the camp, voted Tuesday to end it. Chief Pete Kerns told reporters Wednesday the police haven’t set a firm deadline and are trying to avoid a confrontation. Some said as they left that they’re homeless. A few tried to camp in an alley near the park, but police quickly ousted them.

Teen gets 5 years in hit-and-run death PORTLAND — An 18year-old who pleaded guilty in the hit-and-run death of a bicycle rider in Portland was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison. Ashawntae Rosemon pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide, driving under the influence of intoxicants and other charges for the crash in August that took the life of bicyclist Dustin Finney and injured another bike rider.

UO faculty member burned in explosion EUGENE — A University of Oregon faculty member suffered burns on an arm and some cuts in a chemical explosion Wednesday in a lab at a campus science building. The man was treated at Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield. The university says the explosion was confined to the work station where the man was handling chemicals. It broke glass, but there was no substantial fire damage. The building, Huestis Hall, was evacuated for about an hour.

Waste facility stinks, North Plains says PORTLAND — Eight weeks into Portland’s new curbside food waste program, the Oregon town neighboring the composting facility is crying foul. Officials and residents of North Plains are complaining about the foul smell emanating from the processing facility, which receives the bulk of the food waste from Portland. But they got significant relief Tuesday when Washington County commissioners denied a bid from the waste contractor — Nature’s Needs — to permanently use the facility next to North Plains. Portland solid-waste officials say they could get by even if the facility’s permit is not renewed. Additional capacity for food-waste materials, they say, exists at other regional facilities, most notably a Benton County composting operation owned by Allied Waste. — From wire reports

Defendant in slaying of police chief not psychotic, psychologist testifies The Associated Press ST. HELENS — A man accused of killing the Rainier police chief may act strangely, but he’s not psychotic or mentally ill, a forensic psychologist testified. Defendant Daniel Butts, 22, of Kalama, Wash., has no diagnosable mental condition that would keep him from helping his defense lawyers, Dr. Brooke Howard said Wednesday during a competence hearing. “People can exhibit erratic behavior and not be mentally ill,” said Howard, who works at the Oregon state mental hospital. Lawyers for Butts countered with a list of behaviors that include refusing to speak for months and standing naked in his cell. The hearing continued Thursday. Butts is charged with aggravated murder in the Jan. 5 shooting of Rainier police Chief Ralph Painter, who had responded to a report of a suspicious person at a car stereo shop. The indictment said Butts took Painter’s pistol and shot him in the head. Butts is also accused of firing at other officers and at a nearby church. If he is declared mentally impaired, he would be sent to the state mental hospital for treatment until he’s deemed fit to stand trial. At the hearing, Butts was quiet and composed. He sipped water, read a

psychology textbook and at times put his head on the desk. He now has a full beard and mustache. Defense attorney Patrick Sweeney said Butts speaks only a few words now, after staying mute from March through November.

Behavior before shooting The defense lawyers said that in the days before the shooting, Butts masturbated in front of his mother, refused to bathe and struck a beloved dog. In confinement, he also went on a hunger strike that led to a brief hospitalization, exposed his buttocks to guards, was treated for swollen legs after he stood for hours with his hands in a prayer position, and smeared blood from his nose on cell walls, his lawyers said.

Howard said many of Butts’ actions are intended to create a sense of control in his life and delay his trial. By not talking, she said, he avoids answering questions about possible drug use and other aspects of his history. Sweeney asked whether the likelihood that Butts is psychotic was higher because other family members have psychotic conditions. Howard said someone with a first-generation family member with schizophrenia is 10 times more likely to develop the disorder, but she doesn’t believe Butts is schizophrenic. Asked if his premature birth, his mother’s use of lithium during pregnancy and a head injury from a 2008 car crash could have caused him to develop mental illness, Howard said she found no evidence of that.

The Associated Press SALEM — A panel of state agency managers will consider exceptions to the hiring freeze announced by Gov. John Kitzhaber last week. The committee will judge whether jobs are essential or whether leaving them unfilled could cost the state money, the Salem Statesman Journal reported. Essential jobs are those required by law or vital to public health and safety, said Donna Bennett, a human resources officer in the Department of Administrative Services who is setting up the process. Others that could be filled are financed by federal dollars or crucial to the generation of state income. The committee of agency managers is in its infancy — it met to get organized Tuesday — but already has received 10 appeals from agencies, Bennett said. It will begin reviewing appeals after Christmas, she said. Michael Jordan, director of the department, will have the final say. The freeze is to be in effect through the end of next year’s legislative session. Kitzhaber then will assess it. State agencies report that years of belt-tightening based on bad economic forecasts have gotten them used to such moves. “During this economic climate, it’s expected that we’re going to have these stops and starts in our hiring process,” said Chane

Griggs, assistant director of public services with the Department of Corrections. The agency has 332 vacant positions. Griggs said it will consider pressing to fill open jobs for corrections officers, as well as medical and mental health positions. Bennett said she had to halt her efforts to hire a state labor relations manager. “We were in the final throes of filling that position,” Bennett said. “We had to call our top two candidates and say, ‘We’re very sorry; we can’t fill this position.’ ”

Consider giving to United Way as year winds up


nited Way of Deschutes County is in the midst of its annual public campaign to raise money for the 26 partner agencies it contributes to, and if you’re

looking for a year-end charitable gift to give, you’d be hardpressed to do better. At least 80 cents of every dollar you give goes to the agencies United Way supports. Those agencies provide services in one of the four areas United Way supports. They may fill basic needs, such as feeding and housing the homeless; they may work to keep families safe and free from violence and abuse; they may work to help teens become good adult citizens; or they may focus on giving the area’s youngest citizens the best possible start in life. Though United Way does not provide all of a partner’s budget, what it does give comes in regularly, allowing partners to plan more carefully. Just as important, United Way dollars can be designated — a donor may send all of his contribution to Partners in Care or Bethlehem Inn or any of the other 24 partner agencies. Perhaps less well-known, a donor can use United Way to give money to any recognized charity he wishes, including his church. In those cases, designated funds are simply passed on by United Way,

One of the beauties of United Way is that it gives small charities a reasonable shot at raising money that they might otherwise not have.

Let us worship which charges nothing for providing the service. You may already have decided upon a United Way gift for the coming year at your office. If so, that’s good. If you haven’t, however, now’s the time to do so. And remember: One of the beauties of United Way is that it gives small charities a reasonable shot at raising money that they might otherwise not have. Designated gifts are great. In fact, they are welcomed. At the same time, those gifts that can be spread among all 26 partners touch lives across the county, improving life for us all.

Support Merkley’s bill for business T he federal government’s HUBZone program — Historically Underutilized Business Zone — is a federal program out of a nightmare. Its purpose: Help small businesses in areas that are struggling economically get federal contracts. That’s not a bad idea. Then, though, comes the nightmare. The government uses a formula that is so slow to catch up with reality that there can be a twoyear lag between when a business should qualify and when it does. The federal government is not just slow; a snail could lap it. Businesses in Deschutes County are getting punished. Some should have been qualifying after the housing market collapsed in 2008 but did not. They can’t qualify until after parts of a county are designated by the federal government. The designation formula includes census data and unemployment. Getting the designation does not mean that a company automatically wins contracts. It narrows the field. The federal government’s goal is to award 3 percent of all dollars for federal prime contracts

My Nickel’s Worth

to small businesses in HUBZones. That could have made a difference for companies such as Bendbased Leading Edge Aviation Inc. It competes with other companies for federal firefighting contracts. Sensible people might ask why the federal government’s process takes so long. Sen. Jeff Merkley, DOre., did ask and he did something about it. His bill requires the Department of Housing and Urban Development to designate qualified census tracts within two months of receiving the data. The Small Business Administration then has three months to put the HUBZones into effect. Merkley’s bill may cut the program’s lag in half. That’s not perfect. It’s a lot better than what we have. “Small businesses in struggling areas should not have to wait while bureaucrats shuffle paper,� he has said. “This legislation will cut red tape and provide real benefits, faster, to those counties that have been hit the hardest.� His bill passed the Senate. Now it just needs support in the House.

The comments made by the people from Wisconsin have disturbed me to the point that I am prompted to give them my thoughts on the subject, something unusual for me to do. Apparently a local citizen has objected to the display of the Nativity scene located in Prineville’s plaza. This is the very celebration of Christmas. Christ’s-mass, meaning the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. If you are offended, please look the other way, and continue on your journey out of our lovely town. Otherwise, give us the freedom to worship as we please the son of Almighty God, creator of heaven and earth, and savior of all who love him. America is still the land of the free and the home of the brave. Our country was founded on Christian principles. Sharon Grant Prineville

Let atheists be heard I’m glad Andy Uppendahl was able to exercise freedom of speech in his recent letter. I agree with him that our nation’s values often seem to be crumbling, but I don’t completely agree with what those values are. I am younger than him, but cannot remember a time when there was “total reverence to God and his son� during Christmastime. While I agree Christmas has become too commercialized and chaotic, I don’t think this is the fault of the Freedom From Religion organization. If our Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves, it’s not because of religion. More likely it’s because we Americans still struggle with some very basic ideas they set forth: separation of church and state, freedom

of speech and freedom of religion. Freedom of religion isn’t the exclusive domain of Christians. It applies to Muslims, Buddhists and even atheists, if they are lucky enough to live in the U.S. While anti-religious billboards may be offensive to some, they seem no more offensive to me than evangelists knocking on my door. While the messages in the billboards aren’t subtle, I don’t think they’re an expression of hate. Rather I think the idea is to start a discussion about religion and religious values, which is something millions of people in this world do not have the right to do. Our moral “crumbling� isn’t because of an effort to take God out of peoples’ lives. It’s because of failure to espouse basic human values such as compassion and tolerance. Julie Flannery Bend

Kitzhaber weakens law Gov. Kitzhaber’s decision to stop executions in Oregon weakens our rule of law, which by definition ensures “that individuals, persons and government shall submit to, obey and be regulated by law, and not arbitrary action by an individual or a group of individuals.� Laws are not just broken by offenders. Laws can also be considered broken when government chooses not to enforce them. At the time a murder is committed in Oregon, where the death penalty is on the books, the murderer assumes the risk that they will be put to death if convicted and sentenced. The offender sacrifices their own life to the demands of the law. The state does not arbitrarily take their life from them. If we are unwilling to execute any murderer for fear of executing an innocent person, then we should change the law. I am not

arguing for or against the death penalty. I am arguing for consistency in the rule of law. At the present time we do not have the death penalty in Oregon because it is never enforced. Kitzhaber has placed his personal preferences above the law, primarily because he can. And I don’t fault him if his decision is based on conscience. Repealing the death penalty is preferable to keeping it on the books without ever enforcing it. We are not ruled by the best of men but by principles written into law that both liberate and protect. The law is king. Men are guardians and servants of the law. Roger Austin Bend

Inadequate recognition Once in a time, a great representative of the human race dies to whom we all should give recognition. That sad moment happened Dec. 18 when Vaclav Havel, a lifelong opponent of the communism regime and the first president of the Czech Republic, died at age 75. Although his contributions to world peace, harmony and cooperation among nations are widely known and his status as one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century is indisputable, his initial mention in Monday’s Bulletin merited a paragraph of 18 words and — to add an insult to an injury — as a footnote to a half-page obituary of North Korea’s “Dear Leader� Kim Jong Il — a common foe of the Unites States and the Czech Republic. Yes, I am Czech-American, and my views may be biased, but I strongly disagree with The Bulletin’s approach to reporting the passing of these two world leaders. Roman Soukal Redmond

A different way to be filled with the Christmas spirit


e’re having a very different Christmas at my house this year, one that has turned the holiday season upside down for me. As I’ve discovered, upside down is far from bad. We’ve escaped the season’s craziness completely both by choice and by necessity. I have yet to step into a store in search of a favored gift, for one thing. If I can’t make it at home, it simply isn’t being given. That sits well with my daughter Anna, naturally. There are times when I think nothing would suit her more than to have us move into a tent without plumbing, lights or heat, so intent is she on living a minimalist lifestyle just now. And while I occasionally rebel, I must admit that careful composting has cut garbage bills in half and the judicious use of sweaters has allowed us to lower the thermostat by a couple of degrees.

Anna is a thrift store shopper. I will never embrace the practice as wholeheartedly as she — if I purchase shoes, they’d better be new — but I must admit replacing a broken cat food bowl for 50 cents or augmenting the everyday drinking glasses at a quarter each can feel pretty darned good. As for gifts, Anna makes ’em. In fact, she, Megan and I have been doing a kind of three-cornered square dance (Is that a triangle dance? Perhaps.) in the kitchen all week as we’ve vied for counter and oven space. I’ve mixed my way through nearly 15 pounds of flour and several pounds of raisins and brown sugar, while they’ve roasted and shelled peanuts, mastered the art of caramel making and consumed heaven knows how much cocoa powder. Our butter consumption has hit an all-time high, and fortunately a near-

JANET STEVENS by market has had it on sale for more than a week now. No physician could approve of the amount of animal fat we’ve stirred into cookies, rolls, bread and more, but I comfort myself by noting that these things will be shared among a large group of people. Then there’s the knitting. Like most knitters, I have a stash of yarn odds and ends, some of them quite generous, that can be hard to use up but were too costly initially to simply toss. Finding a purpose for them this year has been a real pleasure. There are books devoted to the subject, generally with something like “one-skein wonders� in the title, and the Internet

is a seemingly endless source of patterns available for free. Like so much else on the Internet, the quality of free patterns varies dramatically. That’s turned out to be an advantage, actually. I’m a rule follower by nature, and discovering I’ll have to, and can, make things up as I go along has been kind of exciting. Keeps the mind flexible, or something. Anna and Megan left Thursday for the Rogue River Valley, and Mary, the dogs, cats and I will have Christmas to ourselves at home. We don’t have a tree: Anna insists that they be alive, and for the last three years they’ve graced our front porch in unornamented splendor. This year I decided to skip it, and no one has complained. I haven’t sent cards, we’ve gone to almost no parties and we’ve hung nary a decoration. If anyone has noticed the lack of formal Christmas cheer, no one has said anything about it.

That may sound Scroogish, but it isn’t. When we don’t concentrate so much on things, we can put a lot more effort into enjoying one another, and that’s what Mary and I plan to do all weekend. Our only requirements are to care for the animals that depend upon us, and that’s hardly onerous work. We’ll cook together, eat meat Anna doesn’t approve of and generally enjoy our time alone. And, when they return next week, we’ll welcome the older girls with open arms. All this turns out to have been a gift in its own right. No one in the family is overtired or frazzled, and none of us has spent more than we could afford. We’re as full of the Christmas spirit as the next family, and we have the energy to go through the season as I think it was meant to be spent. We could hardly ask for more. — Janet Stevens is deputy editor of The Bulletin.

High winds fan California fires Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES — Powerful wind gusts sparked fires, downed trees and caused blackouts across California on Thursday. In Southern California, wind gusts of up to 60 mph toppled several trucks in the Inland Empire, knocked down trees and interrupted power in parts of the San Gabriel Valley, Inland Empire and Orange County. Wind gusts of up to 20 mph fueled a huge fire that damaged at least three buildings in San Francisco.

Apartment fire Crews battled a San Francisco building fire for more than two hours. About 2:30 p.m., firefighters re-entered the building where the fire started. All three floors of the building were ravaged by flames. At least two people were injured, San Francisco Fire Department Capt. Jeanne Seyler said. One civilian was taken to a hospital with smoke inhalation, and a firefighter was treated for burns to the neck.

Two firefighters attack an apartment fire in San Francisco on Thursday. At least 120 firefighters battled the five-alarm blaze.

Santa Ana winds stoked a wildfire in rural areas of Ventura County. Officials say the fire, which broke out Thursday afternoon, had spread to as many

as 20 acres. “Right now the fire is in the brush,� Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Bill Nash said. “No structures have been

threatened or damaged.� At least 100 firefighters were assisted by two waterdropping helicopters, but Nash said the 15- to 20-mph winds remained a concern.

Motorist, trucking company settle for $1.4M By Nils Holst

William Geary sits during a news conference at the Courtyard Marriott in Medford on Wednesday. Geary’s pickup truck was crushed when a doubletractor trailer rolled on top of it last.

Medford Mail Tribune

MEDFORD — William Geary was waiting on a red light in Central Point when the a trailer detached from the rig that was pulling it and slammed into his Chevy Silverado, flattening it and trapping him inside. Now, on the one-year anniversary of the accident, Geary and his wife have settled a lawsuit against the transportation company for $1.4 million, bringing an end to more than six months of hearings, depositions and attorneys. “Six months ago, I never thought that I would be here where I am today, spending Christmas with my family,� Geary said at a news conference Wednesday. “I should never have survived that accident. “I just can’t believe I’m here. I’m 6-foot-4. There’s nothing left of that truck — it’s smashed like a pancake — and how I even survived, it’s just beyond my means to comprehend.�

Trapped for 90 minutes Following the crash on Dec. 21, 2010, Geary was trapped inside his pickup in a mass of twisted metal and shattered glass for 90 minutes before rescuers were finally able to free him. After rescue workers lifted the trailer off the Silverado and cut off the top of the cab, Geary, 60, was rushed to Rogue Valley Medical Center. He was treated for a broken neck, spinal fluid leakage, a broken wrist and fractures of his left fibial and tibial plateau, according to Geary’s attorney, as well as nerve damage in his right arm and wrist. In June, Geary and his wife,

“I just can’t believe I’m here. I’m 6-foot4. There’s nothing left of that truck — it’s smashed like a pancake — and how I even survived, it’s just beyond my means to comprehend.� — William Geary, victim in truck crash

Barbara McCormick, filed a lawsuit against the truck driver, Philip McCulloch, and his employer, Express Transport Corp., for $4.5 million. The suit alleged McCulloch was driving recklessly, the brakes on the rear trailer were out of adjustment and the tractortrailer had mismatched brake slack adjusters. “Trucking accidents are not like regular car accidents,� said Thomas D’Amore, Geary’s attorney. “Trucking accidents usually result in death or serious injury.� D’Amore explained that

the most likely explanation for McCulloch’s behavior was a combination of fatigue and stress, although Express Transport refused to comment on McCulloch’s mindset at the time of the accident. According to D’Amore, Express Transport fired McCulloch shortly after the incident.

Careless driving The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department cited McCulloch for careless driving and making an improper turn. He faced a $795 fine.

“We are big proponents of passing legislation to make sure drivers are well-trained, and making sure they’re not forced to drive,� said D’Amore, speaking about the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Enforcement Act, a bill in the U.S. Senate intended to improve truck safety laws. “Trailers should not tip over on top of other cars unless something very wrong is going on.... It just doesn’t happen that way.�

Victim forgives driver Geary finally met McCulloch in person last month in Portland. “He was very emotional; he cried and apologized,� Geary said. “And I just let him know that he was forgiven.� The $1.4 million settlement was reached after mediation between Geary and the company, and covers more than $300,000 in medical bills, $400,000 in estimated future medical expenses, and $700,000 compensation for loss of work and quality of life. “My bills are paid,� Geary said. “I don’t need a lot of money. I’m not going to get rich off of this.� “I got my apology,� he said. Geary received more than $6,000 in community donations, and now plans to pay it back by donating some of the money from the settlement to local service organizations such as ACCESS, which helped him pay rent during his recovery. “Any money that I have, they need it, and they need help right now really, really badly,� Geary said. “This is an opportunity for me to give something back. To me, ACCESS is probably the closest I can come to doing that.�

Robert Easton was the Henry Higgins of Hollywood Find It All Online FEATURED OBITUARY

By Elaine Woo

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Robert Easton, a character actor whose command of a vast array of foreign and American regional accents led to a flourishing second career as a dialect coach to Hollywood stars such as Charlton Heston and Anne Hathaway, has died. He was 81. Often called the Henry Higgins of Hollywood, he died of natural causes Friday at his home in Los Angeles, said his daughter, Heather Woodruff Perry. A consummate phoneticist like Higgins, the exacting speech tutor in the musical “My Fair Lady,� Easton taught Forest Whitaker the African inflections of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and Ben Kingsley the gruff tones of a New York mobster. He helped Arnold Schwarzenegger turn his Austrian ac-

cent into Russian English and Liam Neeson’s Irish brogue into a Kentucky drawl. He once coached Heston from a bathtub in Munich, helping the actor pronounce his lines like a Scot. When actor Robert Duvall signed on to play Confederate commander Robert E. Lee in the movie “Gods and Generals� several years ago, he wanted Easton to help him sound authentically Virginian. The affable coach quickly became popular with the rest of the cast. “They said, ‘We want Virginia accents,’ � Duvall recalled in an interview Wednesday. “Bob said, ‘Which one? There are 12 distinct accents, from the Piedmont to the ocean.’ He knew them all.� Despite recent health problems, Easton continued to


coach via telephone and tape recorder. “A month ago, he did an entire script on tape for John Travolta,� his daughter said. Born Robert Easton Burke in Milwaukee on Nov. 23, 1930, Easton developed an awareness of speech as a child struggling to tame a stutter. When he was 7, his parents split up and he moved with his mother to San Antonio. Noticing how Texans tend to draw out their speech, he trained himself to talk more slowly, which enabled him to control his stammer. At 14, he auditioned for a spot on the popular radio program “Quiz Kids� and toured the country with the cast of child prodigies. By 18, the lanky, 6-foot-4 teenager was winning parts in Hollywood, mainly playing country bumpkins because of his thick Texas drawl. He appeared on “The Burns and Allen Show,� “Fa-

ther Knows Best,� “The Jack Benny Show,� “The Red Skelton Show,� “Wagon Train,� “Rawhide� and “Gunsmoke.� Fearful of being typecast as the slow-witted deputy or hillbilly cousin, he decided to work on different accents to broaden his opportunities. He discovered he had a facility for mimicking regional speech patterns. In 1961, after marrying June Grimstead, he moved with her to her native England and began studying phonetics at University College in London. He had absorbed a number of European accents by the time he returned to Hollywood three years later. Fellow actors, impressed by his new ability, asked him to teach them. Before long, he had a side business as an accent tutor that quickly grew into his main occupation.

Salmon project a tradition for elementary students


By Susan Palmer The Register-Guard

EUGENE — As surely as salmon migrate out to the sea only to return to the stream where they were spawned, so local elementary school students can be found this time of year with a cup containing one or two salmon fry ready for release into the canoe canal at Alton Baker Park. The latest participants in a decade-long tradition have been coming and going at the park all week, releasing the inch-long fish as the culmination of a lengthy science project designed to explore the life cycle of an iconic Pacific Northwest species. Salmon were once plentiful in Oregon’s undammed rivers, but some runs now are listed as endangered or threatened. State-run salmon hatcheries supplement the wild fish populations that have been decimated by changing river conditions and by the loss of access to spawning areas since the installation of dams designed to produce power and reduce seasonal flooding in the Willamette Valley. On a recent frigid and foggy Thursday morning, students crowded around teachers and parents for a last lesson before releasing their fish into the slow-moving water of the canal, where most will probably become duck food. While some students finished the task quickly, Willagillespie Elementary School fifthgrader Taylor Parker, 11, hunkered near the bank, a close observer of the two fry that had quickly moved from her cup to the canal. “One got really happy. It was swimming and jumped a little bit. The other just kind of floated off all calm,” she said. Elementary school students from the Bethel, Eugene and Springfield school districts have been studying the fish since being provided salmon eggs to care for in October under the long-running program funded by the Eugene Water & Electric Board. Why bother? That’s an easy

Yolanda Elementary student Kristiana Johnson, 10, prepares to release her salmon into the canoe canal Thursday at Alton Baker Park.

“Salmon are a keystone species in our ecosystem. So many other things depend on them for their livelihood.” — Tim Whitley, Eugene School District grant coordinator

question, said Tim Whitley, EWEB grant coordinator for the Eugene School District. “Salmon are a keystone species in our ecosystem. So many other things depend on them for their livelihood,” he said. EWEB’s annual grants to the schools total $650,000. The various programs give children an opportunity to learn about energy and the environment. Since getting the salmon eggs, students have been monitoring the water quality in classroom fish tanks daily, fifthgrade teacher Joyce Cedarlund said. They’ve been watching as the eggs change, grow and develop two dots that become eyes, and then metamorphose into tiny fish attached to the egg sac that continues to feed them. With help from their teachers, students have had to chill the tanks, inserting a frozen bottle of water to keep the fish

from developing too quickly. Once the egg sac disappears, the salmon need to be released so they can forage on insects and other still-smaller fish. The classroom lessons go well beyond biology and the math involved in graphing water quality in the fish tanks, Cedarlund said. Students have learned about the role of the fish in Native American culture, where people had great respect for the species. Art and writing projects get woven in as well, she said. Besides the field trip to release fish, students previously visited Fish Creek near Triangle Lake to watch adult salmon returning to the place they’d been born. That trip caught the attention of 10-year-old Carson Stopher, a Willagillespie student. “It was really cool because we got to see them spawning,” he said. April Powell of Springfield, mother of Yolanda Elementary School fourth-grader Brook, said she was happy to help out that Thursday as dozens of students came and went at the park. Powell home-schooled her daughter last year and did a similar series of lessons, from incubating the eggs to releasing the fry. “I used it as a platform for history, biology, water quality. It’s just so rich,” she said.

Quirks abound in compressed NBA schedule

Locals land all-state honors Seven Central Oregon players have received recognition, and Sisters’ Nik Goertzen has been named Class 4A coach of the year in voting for the 2011 Oregon high school all-state girls soccer teams. The all-state teams, selected in a vote of coaches coordinated by The Oregonian newspaper, were announced this week. Goertzen guided the Outlaws to the 4A state final, where they lost 1-0 in overtime to Gladstone and 4A player of the year Amber Jensen. The 4A all-state first team includes two Sisters players: seniors Jodie Reoch, a forward, and Sara Small, a goalkeeper. A third Outlaw player, sophomore midfielder Natalie Ambrose, received honorable mention. In Class 5A, Bend High senior midfielder Maryn Beutler was named to the all-state first team. Two other Bend seniors — defender Zoe Kilmer and goalkeeper Sally Spencer — received honorable mention, as did junior forward Kristen Parr of Bend’s Summit High. For complete lists of the all-state teams, see scoreboard, D2.

Carmelo Anthony’s return to Denver is delayed for another year. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade won’t be visiting Sacramento anytime soon. Fans in Chicago will only be seeing Kobe Bryant on television this season. The NBA sought competitive balance. What it got was schedule imbalance. One of the many consequences of the lockout, besides hundreds of lost games and hundreds of millions of lost dollars, was the tradition that every team plays in every NBA city at least once per season. That’s not the case this year. While teams will visit every other team in their own conference, they will only make trips to play nine clubs from the other side of the league instead of the usual 15. It’s one of many quirks of a 66-game schedule that, in a variety of ways, is not like any other in NBA history. “In some cases, the team business-type might complain that they didn’t get (to host) the Heat or the Lakers,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said. “While in the background, the coach is do-

INDIANAPOLIS — It doesn’t look as if Peyton Manning will go anywhere next season — unless he’s not healthy. On Thursday, Colts owner Jim Irsay told NFL Network he couldn’t foresee a scenario in which Manning would play anywhere but Indianapolis unless he can’t play at all. Manning has missed the entire season and has not participated in full team practices since having the third and most invasive surgery on his neck Sept. 8. “I think the situation is if he’s back and he’s healthy, I see him coming back and playing here,” Irsay said in a 10minute interview before the game with Houston began. “I think the hope is that his health is in the position where he could return again. That remains uncertain and that’s something that’s first and foremost on my mind.” The only four-time MVP in league history is due a $28 million bonus in early March, but Irsay said that is not an issue. — The Associated Press

Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning looks on before Thursday’s game against Houston.

CORRECTION A story headlined “Cowboys shine at Lebanon tourney” that appeared in The Bulletin on Thursday, Dec. 22, omitted wrestler Dean Smith. The Cowboy junior went 5-2 over two days at the Lebanon Tournament. The Bulletin regrets the omission.

ing cartwheels. So it’s kind of an interesting dynamic.” There’s no shortage of those. Reigning scoring king Kevin Durant dropped 66 points in New York earlier this year — alas, at Rucker Park, the fabled outdoor court and not Madison Square Garden. He and Oklahoma City won’t be going to play the Knicks this season. See NBA / D6

Tribute trek • Longtime Bend resident Jon Weber plans an ambitious journey in memory of his son, who died in a tsunami

A long run and ride Bend’s Jon Weber plans to run and bike down the Oregon Coast in honor of his son, who died in a tsunami.


on Weber calls it “my own healing process.” But it is not just for him. The longtime Bend resident plans to run and bike some 400 miles down the coast of Oregon and Northern California as a tribute to his son, Dustin, who died this past March in the raging ocean waters of a tsunami that socked the West Coast in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake in Japan. The effort will also be in remembrance MARK of other young CenMORICAL tral Oregonians who died long before their time. And, it will serve as a fundraiser for local kids who cannot afford to play school sports. “This is not only for my son,” says the 55-year-old Jon Weber. “It’s … helping kids and helping parents who have lost kids.” Weber plans to run 200 miles and bike 200 miles over 10 days in early March of next year. He will start his trek in Astoria, the northernmost point on the Oregon Coast, where his son’s body was found on a sand bar last April 2. He is hoping to finish on March 11 — the day Dustin is believed to have died — at the mouth of the Klamath River in Northern California, where friends reported that a wave struck Dustin and swept him out to sea. Weber says he will run up to 20 miles per day and bike as many as 50 miles per day, mostly along U.S. Highway 101. A friend will drive a support vehicle and trailer ahead of Weber, who plans to sleep in the trailer each night. Throughout his adventure, Weber will wear a “Tribute Run & Ride” T-shirt with a picture of Dustin on the front and pictures of other parents’ children who have died on the back. Weber is also running in honor of his two brothers who were killed in U.S. military service. See Trek / D6

More information Any parent wishing to have Jon Weber run in remembrance of a child who has passed away can contact him at 541-4809806 or at Parents can also submit a picture of their deceased child that will be screened onto the T-shirt Weber plans to wear throughout his trek. Weber is also hoping to help raise money for local pay-to-play sports fees for needy students. Donations can be made to “Tribute Run” at any local U.S. Bank or Bank of the Cascades branch.

Good news for USC and college football: QB Barkley is returning By Jim Litke The Associated Press


e interrupt this seamy, scandalplagued, cashgrab-of-a-college-football season for the following public-service message: Matt Barkley is staying in school. The announcement Thursday that Barkley will return to USC for his senior season isn’t really a tale about great sacrifice. He knows NFLready quarterback prospects almost always hold their value and he’ll likely get his millions soon enough. It isn’t even the most uplifting story in the game this week. That would be Eric LeGrand’s appearance on the cover of Sports Il-

lustrated commemorating the best sports moment of 2011, when he led his Rutgers teammates onto the field in a wheelchair for a home game in late October, little more than a year after LeGrand was paralyzed playing against Army. Barkley’s decision isn’t the newsiest development this week, either. That would be the wrist slap the NCAA gave Ohio State, whose clueless president and shameless athletic director whined that the school had punished itself enough after learning that former coach Jim Tressel lied and cheated his way through the entire 2010 season.

Baseball • A’s agree to trade LHP Gonzalez to Nats: Lefthander Gio Gonzalez on Thursday said the Washington Nationals have agreed to acquire him in a trade with the Oakland Athletics, pending a physical and the deal being finalized. “It’s 99 percent done,” Gonzalez said in a phone interview. “It’s pending a physical and I’m just waiting to hear from my agent.” A person with knowledge of the deal said Oakland will receive four players, including three top prospects: right-handers A.J. Cole and Brad Peacock, lefty Tom Milone and catcher Derek Norris. Gonzalez has been the subject of trade talk all offseason. Earlier this month, the A’s traded fellow toptier starter Trevor Cahill to the Arizona Diamondbacks. • Beltran, Cardinals agree to deal: Carlos Beltran and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals agreed to a two-year contract pending results of a physical, a move that would fortify the team’s lineup following the departure of Albert Pujols. The team disclosed the agreement Thursday night and said it expects to make a formal announcement shortly after the holidays. KMOX, the Cardinals’ flagship radio station, reported the deal is for $26 million over two years — the same figure cited by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke to The Associated Press. The 34-year-old Beltran batted .300 with 22 home runs, 84 RBIs and a .385 on-base percentage for the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants this year. He likely will be the opening-day right fielder for the Cardinals next season. Lance Berkman is expected to move to first base, taking Pujols’ spot.

Basketball • Nets’ Lopez out two months win broken foot: The New Jersey Nets will be without center and leading scorer Brook Lopez for a couple of months because of a broken right foot. Lopez, who did not miss a game in his first three seasons, was injured during an exhibition game against the Knicks on Wednesday and he will have surgery today. The injury is a stress fracture to the slow-healing fifth metatarsal. Lopez, who averaged 20.4 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists last season as the Nets posted a 24-58 record, played in the second half with the injury. Also on Thursday, the Utah Jazz traded Mehmet Okur to the Nets in exchange for a future second-round draft pick. Okur, a native of Turkey, played only 13 games last season because of injury, but said he was 100 percent entering training camp. He has averaged 13.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in 617 career games with Detroit and Utah.

Motor sports • IndyCar announces 15-race schedule: The IndyCar schedule will have a different look in 2012. China will host its first race Aug. 19, series officials have put Detroit and Fontana, Calif., back on the schedule, and only four of 15 races are currently slated for ovals. It could change again, too. Series CEO Randy Bernard acknowledged he’s still contemplating the addition of two more races. “We’re in the process of confirming a 16th event, while also considering adding a 17th race to the calendar,” Bernard said in a release Thursday. It’s not clear when those announcements may be made, though the agreement with title sponsor Izod requires the series to hold at least 16 races each season. The long-awaited schedule had been delayed as the series conducted an investigation into the October crash that killed two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon at Las Vegas. — From wire reports


Some coaches are playing numbers game

Football • Ex-Notre Dame QB Crist transferring to Kansas: K ansas coach Charlie Weis landed a pair of high-profile quarterbacks Thursday. Former top recruit Dayne Crist announced on Twitter that he would join the Jayhawks for his senior season after a checkered career at Notre Dame, shortly before news broke that BYU quarterback Jake Heaps was also transferring to Kansas. Crist will reunite with Weis, who recruited him to Notre Dame, and be eligible to play next season because he’s already graduated from Notre Dame. Heaps will have to sit out under NCAA transfer rules but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. • Ravens WR Boldin to have knee surgery: Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin had surgery on his knee Thursday to deal with slightly torn cartilage. Coach John Harbaugh said the veteran wideout will miss the final two weeks of the regular season and be able to return for the playoffs. The Ravens will not reveal which knee is injured. Lee Evans is slated to start with Boldin sidelined. The 31-year-old Boldin has 57 receptions for 887 yards and three touchdowns this year. • Wisconsin coordinator to coach at Pitt: Paul Chryst turned Wisconsin’s historically ho-hum offense into a high-powered attack that lit up scoreboards across the Big Ten. Pittsburgh would love to see him do the same with the Panthers, but only after he provides the beleaguered program with some muchneeded stability. The school hired Chryst on Thursday to replace Todd Graham, who bolted for Arizona State last week after less than a year on the job. The 46year-old Chryst is Pitt’s fourth head coach in the past 13 months, following Dave Wannstedt, Mike Haywood and Graham, who left for the Sun Devils following a disappointing 6-6 season. Pitt is hoping Chryst, who spent seven seasons as offensive coordinator at his alma mater, sticks around much longer. In addition to the seemingly endless coaching chaos, the Panthers are leaving the Big East for the ACC by 2014. • Ex-NFL players blame league for brain injuries: Jamal Lewis, Dorsey Levens and two other former NFL players have sued the league over brain injuries that they say left them struggling with medical problems years after their playing days ended. Lewis and Levens, along with Fulton Kuykendall and Ryan Stewart, filed the lawsuit against the National Football League and FNL Properties LLC this week in U.S. District Court in Atlanta. The players maintain the NFL knew as early as the 1920s of the potential for concussions to harm its players but only went public last year. “The NFL has done everything in its power to hide the issue and mislead players concerning the risks associated with concussions,” the players argue in the lawsuit. • Warrant issued for agent Steinberg: A bench warrant over a $1.4 million debt has been issued for star sports agent Leigh Steinberg, whose resume includes representing eight No. 1 overall NFL draft picks and who was the inspiration for the movie “Jerry Maguire.” The warrant for Steinberg’s arrest was issued after he failed to appear in court last week in a case involving a judgment owed to a landlord, Carole Levitzky, a spokeswoman for Orange County Superior Court, said Thursday. Court papers show Steinberg was ordered to pay $1.4 million last year to the Irvine Company in a default judgment for office space he leased in Newport Beach.

Oregon’s E.J. Singler drives against Stephen F. Austin’s Joe Bright during Thursday night’s game in Eugene. Singler scored 12 points in the game.

Ducks win for third time in three nights The Associated Press EUGENE, Ore. — E.J. Singler scored 12 points and Oregon survived a scare from Stephen F. Austin to win 55-45 Thursday in the Global Sports Hoops Classic. Devoe Joseph also had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Ducks (9-3), who ended their nonconference season with three wins in three nights. “We’re really looking forward to a break here and just clearing our minds and really getting prepared for the Pac-12 season,” Singler said. Jereal Scott had 16 points and six rebounds to pace the Lumberjacks (5-7), who were within a basket of Oregon’s lead for most of the second half. Leading 45-42 with 2:44 to play, the Ducks ended the game on a 9-3 run, getting all but two of those points from the free-throw line. “We found a way to win the game and that is essential,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “However, we have to get some things ironed out.” The Ducks have struggled offensively the past week, averaging barely 60 points in their past four games. Thursday’s total was their fewest points scored in a win this season and the second fewest overall. “We’re just grinding right now,” Singler said. “Our offense really isn’t clicking right now. I don’t know why.” Oregon led 35-31 at halftime, breaking a late 18-18 tie with seven straight points before Stephen F. Austin scored the final basket of the half. Overall, Oregon shot 42 percent from the floor but went just five for 18 from the threepoint line one night after making a seasonbest 10 three-pointers against Prairie View A&M. The Ducks also made just 61 percent (14 for 23) of their free-throw attempts but were eight for 11 down the stretch.

TEMPE, Ariz. — The two dry-erase boards inside Arizona State’s locker room are covered with statistical categories written in a variety of colors: sweet spot catches, free throw rebounds, loose balls recovered, penetrations to paint. At the top of the board at the front of the room is a list of players’ initials under the heading Total Deflections. Of all those categories on the two boards, this is the one that gets the most attention from Sun Devils coach Herb Sendek. “Every timeout he’ll be like: ‘How many deflections? How many deflections?’ ” Arizona State assistant coach Lamont Smith said. “For Coach, deflections are a good way to get a gauge of how we’re playing, especially in our zone defense.” All basketball coaches rely on statistics for game planning, assessing their teams and players, teaching and motivating. Some dig a little deeper than the boxscore, past the shooting percentages, turnovers, assists and rebounds. The more analytically leaning coaches employ small armies of assistant coaches, team managers and administrative assistants to calculate and evaluate stats, everything from how many points their center gives up after failing to block out to the percentage of time an opposing guard goes left on drives to the basket. It can be a daunting task. Coaches spend hours going through film of just one game to get all the numbers right, and team managers scramble to keep tally sheets going during games to provide the head coaches with immediate feedback on why the team is succeeding or failing. All this digging for numerical nuggets can add up to an advantage in a game where the slightest adjustments can make the biggest difference. “It’s probably pretty usual throughout the country,” Butler coach Brad Stevens said. “I’m sure every staff has at least a person if not multiple people who delve into it pretty significantly.” Not every coach looks at the numbers the same. Each one has certain statistics they emphasize, goto numbers, so to speak. Sendek is a big proponent of tracking deflections to see how active his zone defense is and looks at how many times the opposing offense catches the ball in the sweet spot of the zone — the area around the free throw line that can be the centralized breaking point of his defense. A point of emphasis for the Sun Devils has been the final 10 seconds of the shot clock on defense after the stats revealed teams were scoring 57 percent of the time. “We figured out that we were playing good defense, but when the shot clock was 10 seconds or under, we were getting torched,” Smith said. “That’s been a big emphasis for us since Tulsa (Dec. 3).” Some teams emphasize hockey assists — the pass before the pass that gets the assist — and others track plus/minus, another puck category. Pressing teams might look at how many traps they have on defense, others might put the focus on points per possession to determine defensive efficiency. Some programs track shooting percentages in practice, some break the games down into 10 fourminute segments to see when the team is playing well, when it needs to pick up the intensity. A few teams have what they call hustle points, a combination of stats that are culled into a scoring system that ranks the players by their contribution to the team. “It’s (the stats) just a good way to drive home what you’re telling the players,” said Mike Gibson, an assistant under Drake coach Mark Phelps, another integer enthusiast. “It’s really irrefutable evidence.” Stevens has become known as one of the forefathers of statistical analysis in college basketball after taking the mid-major Bulldogs to consecutive NCAA championship games. A former marketing associate at a pharmaceutical company, Stevens is a firm believer in using numbers to augment what he’s trying to get the players to do on the floor. His answer to which stats his team keeps track of is “Every category,” though he pays particular attention to the opposing team’s tendencies, looking at what they like to do — inbound plays they run, where the guards like to shoot from, how many times certain plays are run — to make sure his players are ready. There is a fine line with the numbers, though. Coaches like Stevens and Sendek are analytically minded and like to have firm evidence to back up their philosophies and teaching methods. They also know that giving the players too many numbers can overload them, get them thinking about decimal points instead of playing the point. “You try to find a great balance, you’ve got to simplify the game as much as possible with regard to how you’re going to play it because it moves so fast,” Stevens said. “I will say this: our margin for error is such, if we’re not really good in what the opponent wants to do, then we’re not going to be as successful as we could be.” Some of this statistical-infused trend has become a necessity. Players, particularly at high-academic universities like Butler, Stanford or Duke, don’t accept things just on face value. So to just tell them that they need to keep someone out of the lane or box someone out for a rebound isn’t enough. They want to know why it’s important, want proof that the coach knows what he’s talking about. “The hardest thing to do — for players, coaches and people in general — is to self-evaluate,” said Michigan State coach Tom Izzo, another digit disciple. “By doing stats and showing film, it takes the self out of the evaluating process. I think it’s happening more in college basketball because all coaches are trying to prove their point to kids now more than ever.” The numbers never lie.





Playoffs? Just one more win will do it for the Lions By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

Matt Slocum / The Associated Press

New York Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress catches the ball for a touchdown in front of Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on Sunday. Burress, after being in prison for 20 months, has had a comeback season with the Jets with eight touchdown receptions.

Comebacks by players are taking many shapes By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

NEW YORK —Comebacks are the rage in the NFL. We don’t mean overcoming large deficits to win games, although in 2011 that’s happening plenty, too. Players who disappeared from the headlines, from lineups, from the league entirely — those comebacks are especially impressive. Talk about quarterbacks (Alex Smith, Tony Romo, Matt Hasselbeck) or kickers (Mike Nugent), tight ends (Jermichael Finley) or wideouts (Plaxico Burress, Steve Smith), defensive ends (Elvis Dumervil) or linebackers (DeMeco Ryans) or backs (Carlos Rogers), comebacks are in style. Finley had the most successful layoff. He missed the final 11 games last season with a right knee injury, so he sat and watched his teammates win the Super Bowl, easing the, uh, pain, but making him even more eager to get back on the field. For much of this season, in which Green Bay is 13-1, the speedy, powerful Finley has been unstoppable, although a case of the drops hit him recently. Finley has 45 catches, averaging 15.2 yards, and six touchdowns.

Plaxico out of prison The most difficult hiatus was spent by Burress, who was in prison for 20 months for accidentally shooting himself in a Manhattan nightclub. He signed with the Jets as a free agent once the lockout ended, and his impact has been solid, if not spectacular. New York leads the league in red-zone touchdown efficiency with 32 in 47 trips, a huge improvement over the previous season. Burress has eight TD catches and has become Mark Sanchez’s go-to receiver near the end zone. “Personally, I just think I needed a fresh start,” Burress said. “If I wanted to go somewhere and get more money, I could’ve went to a couple more places and signed a two- or three-year deal, different things like that. I just wanted to put myself in a situation to go

somewhere fresh and have an opportunity to play for a great organization and for a great head coach in Rex (Ryan) and a great team. “I feel that I’m in the right place.” Steve Smith feels that way once again about Carolina, in great part thanks to the arrival of top overall draft pick Cam Newton. Smith was coming off a down year in which Carolina was the league’s worst team, with no quarterbacks who could get him the ball. It was a miserable situation, and Smith has been known to blow a fuse. Then Newton showed up, and Smith was revitalized. Smith now is over 10,000 yards receiving for his career. “You know, it doesn’t matter how many articles are written about me — about how I’m a bad character guy, or erratic or moody — no matter how many negative things are written, the power of public opinion doesn’t win on this one,” Smith said. “This is a stat that I’ve earned, with the help of a lot of other people, that can’t be taken away. “It’s a milestone that I would say really counts. It really matters.”

Getting a Bronco back One thing that really has mattered for Denver has been the return of Dumervil. He missed the entire 2010 season with a torn chest muscle suffered in the preseason. The previous year, his 17 sacks led the league. It took a while this year for Dumervil to get back to his old form. A left shoulder injury hampered him, but as the Broncos began their surge to the top of the AFC West, Dumervil was one of the leaders. “Sometimes you just have to get your body right, man,” he said. “That’s been the biggest issue for me.” At issue for 49ers QB Alex Smith has been, well, everything. He’s played for seven coordinators in his seven pro seasons, stymieing any chance for growth in one season.

This year, under new coach Jim Harbaugh, who immediately displayed his faith in the 2005 overall No. 1 draft pick, Smith has flourished and the Niners won the NFC West — their first playoff berth since 2002. “He wants to be successful and learn as much as he possibly can about this game and try to find ways to help this team get better down the road,” tight end Vernon Davis said. “I’m all for it. I’m a big supporter.”

Even kickers Bengals kicker Nugent couldn’t be sure how much support he had in Cincinnati as he returned from a major injury to his right knee suffered in mid-November 2010. His accuracy on field goals erased any doubts, and he’s been the league’s most pinpoint kicker, 27 for 29 thus far. “It was tough because when you tear your ACL, you lose your quad (muscles), which is the first thing that stops doing anything,” Nugent said. “It’s basically the whole offseason getting your quad back to where it was before. It was tough at times because I felt like I was a level behind everyone else.” Not any longer. Others who have made impressive comebacks this year include quarterbacks Romo of Dallas, Hasselbeck of Tennessee, and Matthew Stafford of Detroit; 49ers CB Rogers; linebackers Ryans and Connor Barwin of Houston, D’Qwell Jackson of Cleveland, and Nick Barnett of Dallas; and two running backs who have been sensational recently, Marshawn Lynch of Seattle and Reggie Bush of Miami. “It definitely means a lot,” Bush said of becoming the dependable, every-down back he wants to be. “It means that I’m doing everything that I expected I was going to be doing. This isn’t so much me being surprised this happened. It’s more the fact this is something I expected.” Even if not a lot of others did, which makes a comeback even more special.

Indy gets past Houston, wins second straight By Michael Marot The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Reggie Wayne will always remember Thursday night’s catch. The man with the expiring contract caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left, giving the Colts their only lead of the game in a 19-16 victory over AFC South champion Houston 19-16. It’s the second straight win for the Colts (2-13), who will now have to fight off St. Louis and Minnesota for the No. 1 overall draft pick. Orlovsky, who played the past two seasons with Houston, also won his second straight game after losing his first nine NFL starts. “Reggie certainly had a spectacular game. Caught it well, was active in the running, just all around a terrific game,” Colts coach Jim Caldwell said. Houston was in a position to come to Indianapolis and simply tune up for the postseason. Not a chance. The Texans looked anything

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Dan Orlovsky reacts after throwing the game-winning touchdown during the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game against the Houston Texans.

but playoff-ready. They settled for two field goals in the red zone, didn’t convert a third down until getting a lucky bounce late in the

fourth quarter, its running game was stymied late and the defense helped the Colts with three penalties on the decisive drive. Houston (10-5) is now 0-10 in Indianapolis and still hunting for a first-round bye. The Texans still haven’t scored more than 20 points in a game since Nov. 27. Arian Foster carried 23 times for 158 yards, but Indianapolis repeatedly stopped the Texans’ runners in the red zone. “We didn’t turn the ball over nearly as much as we did in that (first) game,” Caldwell said, referring to a 34-7 loss. “But beyond that, I think we were pretty good at protecting the ball. I think our defense played extremely well even though they ran for 171 yards. It was kind of a bend but don’t break defense, but when they had to stop them in the red zone, they stopped them in the red zone.” Orlovsky was 23 of 41 for 244 yards with the one TD. Joseph Addai ran 19 times for 59 yards. T.J. Yates wound up 13 of 16 for 132 yards for Houston.

The last time the Detroit Lions were this close to the playoffs, Barry Sanders was in their backfield. Sanders now is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a place few if any of the recent Lions will end up. His former team has been rebuilt by GM Martin Mayhew and coach Jim Schwartz, and a win over San Diego on Saturday will secure Detroit an NFC wild-card slot. Since making the postseason in 1999 at 8-8 — one year after Sanders retired — the Lions have had one winning year (9-7 in 2000) and six last-place finishes. “You think of the last 10 years, what we’ve gone through — what this organization and what the city and the fans have gone through — to be able to get to the playoffs, to have a successful season, it’s huge,” tackle Jeff Backus said. “People have been waiting a long time. I’ve been waiting my whole career to do it.” Backus joined Detroit in 2001, and seven years later was on the only 0-16 team in NFL history. These Lions, led by star receiver Calvin Johnson and headlinemaking defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, started the season 5-0, slumped, but by beating San Diego they would be 10-5. And in the playoffs. “I’m proud to be a Detroit Lion,” Backus said. “I take a lot of pride in what we do here and the emphasis we’ve had on trying to get it turned around, and things are starting to pay off. We’ve just got to finish it out the right way.” So does San Diego: The Chargers (77) still have playoff hopes, too, after winning three in a row. “Yeah, I think it’s a playoff game for both teams from an approach standpoint,” Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers said. “I would like to think we approach all of them that way, but certainly being two weeks left in the season and ... they clinch it (if) they win. If we win, we stay alive, so it’s obviously a big-time game for both teams.” Atlanta also can grab a wild card if it beats New Orleans on Monday night. The holiday weekend began with Houston (10-5) falling to Indianapolis (2-13). Other games Saturday with playoff implications — well, just about every game has such meaning this weekend — have Philadelphia at Dallas, St. Louis at Pittsburgh, Cleveland at Baltimore, Denver at Buffalo, Oakland at Kansas City, the New York Giants at the Jets, Arizona at Cincinnati, Jacksonville at Tennessee, and San Francisco at Seattle. Also Saturday, it’s Miami at New England, Minnesota at Washington and Tampa Bay at Carolina. Green Bay hosts Chicago on Christmas night. • Atl anta (9-5) at New Orleans (11-3), Monday night: It’s simple for the Saints: a win and they own the NFC South title. New Orleans has won six straight since an inexplicable defeat at St. Louis, scoring 197 points in that streak. The Saints also have won five of six against Atlanta, including 26-23 in overtime last month when Falcons coach Mike Smith’s overtime gamble on fourthand-1 failed. While Atlanta needs lots help to surpass the Saints even with a victory in prime time, it gets an NFC wild card with a win. Chicago (7-7) at Green Bay (13-1), Sunday night: With the pursuit of perfection gone pfft, the Packers need to get healthy for the playoffs. They have lost leading receiver Greg Jennings until January, and injuries have hit both lines. But they also need one more win to secure not having to leave Lambeau Field in the NFC playoffs. Chicago still has slim wild-card hopes despite losing its past four. With the second string playing at many key offensive spots, keeping up with Green Bay’s prolific offense is an even slimmer hope. Philadelphia (6-8) at Dallas (8-6): Hard to believe the Eagles remain alive in the NFC East, yet there they are. Win out, have the Giants fall to the Jets and then beat Dallas, and guess who walks off with the division? Yep, Philly. The last time they met, the Eagles romped 34-7, their best performance of the year — until routing the Jets last Sunday. The pass rush, led by Jason Babin with 18 sacks, 4 1⁄2 short of Michael Strahan’s mark, could give Tony Romo problems; no wonder owner Jerry Jones said he is “scared” of the Eagles. St. Louis (2-12) at Pittsburgh (10-4): Some people think the Steelers will rest Ben Roethlisberger and his injured left ankle, although the quarterback won’t be too fond of that with playoff implications involved. Those same folks believe the Steelers can handle the awful Rams with Charlie Batch behind center. Or maybe without any QB at all. The Rams’ Steven Jackson needs 34 yards rushing to become the seventh player in NFL history to gain 1,000 yards in seven or more consecutive seasons. Cleveland (4-10) at Baltimore (10-4): The Ravens must falter for Pittsburgh to have a shot at the AFC North; Baltimore swept the season series. And the Ravens sure did falter last week at San Diego. Still, Baltimore hasn’t lost to Cleve-

land in the past seven meetings, the Browns are decimated by injuries and distracted by the mishandling of QB Colt McCoy’s concussion. Denver (8-6) at Buffalo (5-9): The Tebow Express was derailed by New England last week, but now faces one of the NFL’s biggest flops since the midway point. While Tim Tebow, Willis McGahee, a staunch defense and some clever coaching by John Fox have taken the Broncos from 2-5 to the verge of the division title — a win and an Oakland loss does the job — Buffalo has been stampeded the past seven weeks. Oakland (7-7) at Kansas City (6-8): Strangely, the Chiefs remain alive in the AFC West and by beating their archrivals, getting an upset by Buffalo and then taking down the Broncos next week in Denver, they could walk off with the prize. Barring, of course, San Diego sweeping its two games in that scenario. The way the Chiefs’ defense came alive last week in Romeo Crennel’s first game as interim coach, it certainly could shut down Oakland, which continues to hurt itself with mistakes, especially penalties. New York Giants (7-7) at New York Jets (8-6): For all the local blather surrounding the first Big Apple matchup that counts in four years, this game doesn’t move the meter a whole lot outside the New York area. Both teams have disappointed, with the Giants losing five of their past six, including an inept performance against Washington last week after taking control of the NFC East. Eli Manning is having his best season, far superior to what Mark Sanchez has done for the Jets, and that quarterbacking edge could be decisive. New York — uh, the guys in green — can move very close to an AFC wild card with a win, plus Cincinnati and Oakland losses. Arizona (7-7) at Cincinnati (8-6): Among the most stunning numbers in the NFL standings are the 7-7 records accompanying the Cardinals and Seahawks. Arizona started 1-6, but coach Ken Whisenhunt and staff have done nearly as strong a job keeping the faith as they did back in 2008. All the Cardinals did then was come within a few minutes of the NFL title. Their surge has been sparked by a rapidly improving defense and a tremendous knack for winning in overtime: 3-0. San Francisco (11-3) at Seattle (7-7): Coming off an impressive victory over Pittsburgh in prime time, the 49ers have another tough chore. On short rest, they travel to Seattle, which has won five of six and is in the wild-card chase. The Niners can’t afford to stumble if they want to earn a first-round playoff bye, so don’t look for them to rest many regulars. Marshawn Lynch has been a terror in the ground game with touchdowns in 10 straight games and has gone over 1,000 yards rushing for Seattle, which needs lots of help along with two wins to make the postseason. Jacksonville (4-10) at Tennessee (7-7): If the Titans wind up 9-7 and a loss to the previously winless Colts costs them a playoff berth, they can write a country ballad wailing about their miseries and sing it at the Grand Ole Opry. Tennessee shouldn’t struggle with another inept opponent, the Jaguars, but who knows after last week’s flop? “From the first play through the whole game, we had way too many mental mistakes to be going to the playoffs or having a shot at even going to the playoffs,” receiver Nate Washington said. Miami (5-9) at New England (11-3): For those who criticize this version of the Patriots for being relatively defenseless and not up to the level of their past AFC East championship teams, remember if they win out, they have home-field advantage for the conference playoffs. With Tom Brady chucking the ball to Wes Welker, and with powerful TE Rob Gronkowski catching it, then running past or over people, the offense hasn’t slowed. After replacing Tony Sparano with Todd Bowles as coach last week, the Dolphins won at Buffalo. They are 5-2 in their past seven, so maybe Sparano knew what he was doing in getting them turned around before he was canned. Minnesota (2-12) at Washington (5-9): Coming off a lopsided victory over the Giants, the Redskins are trying to build something for next year, with rookie Roy Helu a major contributor at running back. The Vikings soon can start building, too, with a very high draft pick after what has been an extremely disappointing first full season for coach Leslie Frazier. DE Jared Allen is five sacks from Strahan’s record. Tampa Bay (4-10) at Carolina (5-9): Tampa has gone from 4-2 and a contender to the bottom of the NFC South, jeopardizing coach Raheem Morris’ job. Only Philadelphia has committed more turnovers than the Bucs’ 32 and the defense has come unglued. That bodes well for the improving Panthers, who have the playmakers on offense with Cam Newton, Steve Smith, DeAngelo Williams and Greg Olsen to send Tampa to a ninth straight defeat.





Boise State hammers Senators top Panthers in overtime Arizona State in Vegas By Oskar Garcia The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Doug Martin rushed for 151 yards and returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown, giving No. 8 Boise State a lead 14 seconds into the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas on the way to a 56-24 win Thursday night. Arizona State (6-7) never seriously threatened the Broncos (12-1), even though Boise State had three turnovers and allowed a 97yard kickoff return for a touchdown by the Sun Devils to start the second half. “It spread the word about Boise State,” quarterback Kellen Moore said. “We took advantage of opportunities to elevate this program.” Boise State finished seventh in the BCS standings, but wasn’t invited to one of its bigmoney bowl games. The Mountain West and Pac-12 conferences each received $1.1 million for the MAACO Bowl. Arizona State missed on several opportunities to make the game closer, wasting a bowl-record 241-yard receiving effort by Gerell Robinson, who caught a touchdown in the fourth quarter after the Broncos had already scored 49 points. Moore — the NCAA’s winningest player at the position — played well enough in his last college game to keep his team scoring, despite some missteps. He finished with 266 yards and two touchdowns, plus two interceptions and a fumble in a game that capped his college career with 50 total wins. “When you’re at a good place with good people, good things happen,” Moore said. Boise State coach Chris Petersen said it was important to put a stamp on the careers of

Moore and his fellow seniors. “These guys took it up a notch or two,” Petersen said. “It was extremely important to the coaching staff and this team.” Martin finished with 301 all-purpose yards, breaking a bowl record set in 1997 by Air Force’s Pat Johnson. His touchdown return also set a record for the longest kickoff return in MAACO Bowl history. It was the first time the opening kickoff had been returned for a score in any bowl game since Ted Ginn Jr. did it in the 2007 BCS title game.


UCLA vs. Illinois makes case for fewer bowls By Ralph D. Russo The Associated Press


f ever there was a game that could be used to make the case that there are too many bowls, it is this one: UCLA vs. Illinois in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Dec. 31. The game itself is not the problem. Played at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the home of the baseball Giants, it’s sponsored by Kraft Foods and organizers say they will donate one meal for every ticket sold to one of three local organizations that work to feed those in need. It’s a good cause and on a schedule that includes the Bowl and the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, the Fight Hunger Bowl sounds downright noble. The teams, however, are hardly worthy of being rewarded with a postseason game. Both will have interim coaches, replacing guys who were fired after disappointing regular seasons. The Bruins fell into a Pac-12 South title, thanks to Southern California’s NCAA sanctions. UCLA backed into the championship game with a 50-0 loss in the season finale to USC. That embarrassment was the final blow for coach Rick Neuheisel, who was fired before UCLA played Oregon for the league title. With a 6-6 record, UCLA applied for and received a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible for a bowl even if the Bruins lost to the Ducks — which, of course, they did, 49-31. Mike Johnson, Neuheisel’s offensive co-

Barkley Continued from D1 But Barkley’s story might be the most surprising, considering how rarely loyalty takes hold across the college football landscape, including the very spot on which he was standing. Not quite two years ago, Pete Carroll, the coach who recruited Barkley, left for Seattle and the NFL rather than stick around and face the harsh penalties the NCAA was about to levy on Southern California for a host of violations on his watch. The coach Barkley played for the past two seasons, Lane Kiffin, didn’t exactly cover himself in glory, either, for the way he departed Tennessee — abruptly — to take Carroll’s place. Barkley and his teammates bore the brunt of the postseason bans and all that upheaval and decided to come back anyway. “I am staying so I can finish what I started,” Barkley said to cheers inside USC’s Heritage Hall. More than a few pro scouts shook their heads at that moment, though, recalling how Matt Leinart made the same call to a similar round of cheers a handful of years earlier. “It’s another year with my pals, no matter how it turns out,” Leinart said a few days after his decision. “But I’ll tell you what: I didn’t want to look back 10 or 20 years down the road and find out I passed on the chance to be a part of something really special.” He was coming off USC’s back-to-back national championships and a Heisman Trophywinning season. He didn’t duplicate either achievement in the one that followed and his draft stock tumbled when Texas quarterback Vince Young, who outplayed Leinart in a thrilling Bowl Championship Series finale, declared himself eligible for the same 2006 draft. Leinart, a lock for the top spot a year earlier, tumbled to No. 10 and wound up costing himself millions. If there’s any consolation for Barkley in that example, it’s that Leinart, despite proving himself a barely adequate backup in the pros,

ordinator, will coach the bowl game. Jim Mora Jr. has been hired as the permanent replacement. Complain if you want about a 6-7 team playing in a bowl, but is it any worse than a team that lost its last six games? The Illini pulled off that trick, becoming the first major college team to start a season 6-0 and lose its next six regular-season games. That got Ron Zook fired. He was replaced on an interim basis by defensive coordinator Vic Koenning. Tim Beckman of Toledo will take over the program after the bowl. But, hey, at least the Illini haven’t blown off practice leading to the bowl game. The Bruins did that Tuesday. There’s a tradition at UCLA called going “over the wall,” where the players bolt from the practice field. It’s a prank that has come and gone and come again at Westwood and seemed to be on its way out for good. Considering how things have gone for UCLA this season, even some of the Bruins agreed this would have been a perfect time to retire the stunt. “There are still guys in the program who were here at the time it was going on,” junior quarterback Kevin Prince was quoted as saying in the Los Angeles Times this week. “They figured once they were seniors they would get the chance to call it. I was hoping it was out of our system. Clearly it is not.” Often there are teams that deserve better bowls. In this case, maybe the bowl deserves better teams.

still made millions. Plus, like Leinart, Barkley will be returning to a Trojans squad with a very realistic chance to win a national championship next season and a strong enough supporting cast — on offense, anyway — to get him a Heisman Trophy. USC finished 10-2 and climbed all the way to No. 5 before shutting things down for the season. While Barkley loses his best protector on the offensive line — left tackle Matt Kalil already declared for the NFL draft, where he could go as high as No. 2 — the quarterback will reunite with receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods, a tandem that just might be the nation’s best. We won’t know how things turn out, of course, for a while. But it’s hardly the bad business decision those NFL scouts panned it as, if only because Stanford’s Andrew Luck made the same one at the end of last season and cemented his place at the top of next spring’s NFL draft. And the quartet of quarterbacks who did the same dating back to Peyton Manning in 1997 — Leinart, Tim Tebow (2009) and Jake Locker (2010) — all were gone by the end of the first round the following year. But minimizing the risk that Barkley is taking shouldn’t stop us from marveling at the loyalty he showed to a school and a sport that always rewards coaches and administrators handsomely, but not always the kids who make it all possible. The lessons the sport has been teaching the past few years — from fleeing coaches to shady conference realignment schemes to university presidents only too willing to look the other way — is that it’s every man for himself. By returning to USC for one more year, Barkley signaled he was still about something else. Bravo. “That’s not an easy decision,” said Kiffin, who won’t get a better present this Christmas. “Not many people would do what Matt has done.” — Jim Litke is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

The Associated Press OTTAWA — All set to get his third point of the night, Erik Karlsson settled for an excellent vantage point to observe the Ottawa Senators’ overtime winner. Bobby Butler’s pass towards Karlsson went in off Florida defenseman Brian Campbell’s skate 2:02 into the extra period, and Ottawa beat the Florida Panthers 4-3 Thursday night for its third straight win. Karlsson, who had a goal and an assist, was set to redirect Butler’s pass from the left side beyond Scott Clemmensen, but Campbell’s skate got to the puck first. “He probably saw it too and tried to turn and break off the pass and we got a bit of a lucky bounce, and it doesn’t really matter,” Karlsson said. “It was nice to stand there up close and see it go in.” Daniel Alfredsson scored his 399th goal on a power play and had two assists for Ottawa, which gave up leads of 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2. Chris Neil scored the Senators’ first of two goals with the man advantage and set up Alfredsson for the second. Craig Anderson made 32 saves. Tomas Kopecky drew Florida even at 3 when he scored the tying goal with 1:12 left in the third and goalie Scott Clemmensen pulled for an extra attacker. Kris Versteeg passed from behind the net to Kopecky, who beat Anderson from the goalmouth as the Panthers erased their third one-goal deficit. Michal Repik and Shawn Matthias also scored for Florida. Alfredsson assisted on Chris Neil’s power-play goal in the first. Neil got his second point when he set up Alfredsson’s goal with the man advantage

7:38 into the third that put Ottawa ahead 2-1. Matthias drew Florida even at 2 with the game’s fourth straight power-play goal at 9:05. Karlsson restored Ottawa’s lead 38 seconds later when his blast from the right point got past Clemmensen for his fourth goal at 9:43. Alfredsson, who extended his points streak to four games, got his second assist of the game on the play. The Senators’ captain has nine points, including three goals and six assists, over the course of his streak. “I think healthwise I feel like I’m skating and getting up and down the ice at the rate I’d like to,” Alfredsson said.

NBA calendar

Continued from D1 The NBA champion Dallas Mavericks won’t be going to Charlotte, nor will Durant’s Thunder, Bryant’s Lakers or the Spurs, and that will keep ticket dollars from finding Bobcats owner Michael Jordan’s pockets. Teams won’t be playing the same number of divisional games, so get ready for complaining should tiebreakers come into play when determining playoff seeding. And many small market teams will miss out on some guaranteed sellouts against some elite clubs that might hurt in the standings but help with the bottom line. “That’s what happens when you have a lockout,” Durant said. When Magic coach Stan Van Gundy heard the league was putting together a 66game slate instead of the usual 82-game run, he figured the breakdown was simple: Play every team in your division four times, then face every other team home and away. That seemed easy enough. Instead, it’s complicated. “I’m not being critical of it,” Van Gundy said. “They’ve got a short period of time to play 66 games and there were a lot of factors they had to consider and I’m sure that they did it the best way that they could.” True, but there is some zaniness. Atlanta takes a trip that has the Hawks going north, then south, then north, then west, then east, then west and then home again, all in the span of nine days. Cleveland has a nine-game February homestand. San Antonio goes nearly four weeks without a home game. The Kings close the first half of their schedule with 20 of 28 away from Sacramento, daunting for a team desperate to keep fans engaged while trying to get a new arena. Denver plays nine in a row at home in one stretch, then immediately hits the road for seven straight. But there’s no Anthony homecoming in Denver. “Did it bother me? Not really,” said Anthony, now with the Knicks. “I mean, I would love to go back and

A look at key dates for the upcoming NBA season: Dec. 24 — Rosters set for opening day, 3 p.m. PST Dec. 25 — Start of regular season Feb. 6 — 10-day contracts can be signed Feb. 10 — All contracts guaranteed for remainder of the season Feb. 24-26 — All-Star game, Orlando, Fla. April 26 — Regular season ends April 27 — Rosters set for playoffs, noon PST April 28 — Playoffs begin. April 29 — Draft early entry eligibility deadline, 8:59 p.m. PST May 30 — Draft lottery June 12 — NBA Finals begin (possible move up to June 10) June 18 — Draft early entry withdrawal deadline, 2 p.m. PST June 26 — Last possible date for the finals June 28 — NBA draft July 1-10 — Moratorium period July 11 — Teams may begin signing free agents

play there. The reaction I would get, who knows? I might get some boos, I might get some claps, but it’d have been fun.” Minnesota coach Rick Adelman was thrilled to see his club opens with six of seven at home. And then he looked who those early opponents are — the first four clubs to visit the Timberwolves are Oklahoma City, Miami, Dallas and San Antonio. “It’s a challenge for us,” Adelman said. “If we come out and we’re ready to go, and we can knock some of these people off, it’s just going to be better for us.” The Wolves don’t host Atlanta, Milwaukee, New Jersey, Orlando, Toronto and Washington, teams that perhaps don’t inspire the casual fan to run down on game night to check them out, but could be

winnable games. They also don’t travel to Boston, Chicago, Miami or New York. From a competitive standpoint, not having to play those teams on the road is great for the Wolves. But from a player experience standpoint, the Wolves don’t sound thrilled. “I think we don’t go to Miami and Chicago. ... That’s a little sad,” eagerly anticipated guard Ricky Rubio said. With this kind of schedule, youth might be served. Washington is expected to open the year with 10 players on the team age 25 or younger. So on those back-to-back-to-back nights, the Wizards might have a touch more spring in their collective step than some other clubs. “It reminds me of an AAU season — playing five games in one day,” Wizards guard John Wall said. “It can be tough at times, but I think it can help us.” In past years, playing four games in five nights would be considered the worst of the schedule grind. It’s worse this year. Not only will every team have at least one stretch of playing three games in three nights, but there will also be times when teams play eight games in 11 days. If a key player rolls an ankle, certainly a common issue in the NBA, at a particularly busy time in the schedule, a team could find itself without a key player for maybe 20 percent of the season. And with all those games in such a short span, this much is guaranteed: There will be nights when some teams will know the odds are stacked very, very highly against them, when they’re the weary-legged club against a team that’s had a couple of days off to freshen up. “There will be nights when you’ll be like, ‘OK, well, let’s just go try and see what happens,’ ” Wade said. “It’s not going to be easy. For anyone.”

Trek Continued from D1 To train for the endeavor, Weber has been running at least seven miles per day, and 15 to 20 miles one day a week. “I think my body will hold up,” says Weber, a former Bend High School wrestler who has always maintained his fitness. “I’ve been pushing it pretty good. I’m probably in the best shape I’ve been in 30 years.” Dustin Weber, who was 25 when he died, was an indirect victim of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake off the northeast coast of Japan that struck on March 11. More than 13,000 Japanese citizens were killed in the earthquake and resulting tsunami. Raised in Bend by his father and his stepmother, Dina, Dustin had moved to California just three weeks before he died. His maternal grandmother, a member of the Yurok tribe of American Indians, had given him an old house on the reservation south of Crescent City, Calif., Jon Weber says, and Dustin had been fixing up the house, hiking and making new friends. On the morning of the tsunami, Dustin and two friends went down to the beach to watch the waves come in and take photos. According to his friends, Dustin had his back turned when a large wave knocked him down and dragged him away from shore. His body was found about 400 miles north, some three weeks later. Dustin Weber was the first person in the U.S. to be killed by a tsunami since 1964, when an earthquake in Alaska triggered waves that hit Crescent City, claiming 11 victims. Jon Weber says his son had struggled with drug use and had served some jail time. But he also says that Dustin had turned his life around, and that he was off drugs when he died. “He had a great personality and a smile that would just dazzle anybody,” Jon says of his son. “It was hard to watch someone who had just changed their life … get taken.” As a freshman at Bend’s Mountain View High School, Dustin tore the ACL and meniscus in his knee during a football practice and was unable to play after that, according to Jon Weber. Jon says it was after Dustin stopped playing football that the teen got

involved with drugs. That is why Jon hopes through his tribute run and bike that he can raise funds for underprivileged kids to play sports. At Bend-La Pine Schools, the pay-to-play fee is $100 per high school sport. For the third consecutive year, requests for need-based sports scholarships in the school district have outpaced fundraising efforts, according to local school officials. “I just saw what happened to (Dustin) when he wasn’t playing sports,” Jon Weber reflects. “Knowing there’s some good athletes who can’t afford to play sports … if I can help just a few kids, it’s something that Dustin would have wanted. And if we contribute to that, we’ve done something good.” Jon, a meat cutter at Albertson’s in Bend for more than three decades, has endured a challenging past few years. He overcame prostate cancer three years ago and, he says, is now in remission. Just one day after Dustin’s body was found last April, Jon’s 84-year-old mother, Dustin’s grandmother, passed away. “We’ve been wiped out,” Jon says. “I lost my mom and my son in less than three weeks.” Kelsea Weber, Dustin’s sister and Jon’s daughter, says she was close to her brother even though he was eight years older than her. “There’s days here and there where it’s harder than others,” says Kelsea, an 18year-old senior at Mountain View. “You just have to keep living. We’ve all dealt with (Dustin’s death) in different ways. This (run and bike) is a good way for (my dad) to get that closure, especially helping other people with their losses.” Kelsea believes her father can complete his planned 400-mile journey. “I think he definitely has the guts and determination to get it done,” she says. Jon Weber knows the weather on the Oregon Coast could be dicey in late winter, but he is determined to complete his goal in memory of his son — and of many others’ sons and daughters who have passed on. “Rain and wind will kick my ass,” Weber predicts. “But a 40-mile day is not a big deal. It’s my way of healing. It’s my tribute.” — Reporter: 541-383-0318,

IN BRIEF Kids optimistic about U.S.’ future A new poll from Weekly Reader shows kids feel more optimistic about the United States’ ability to solve our country’s problems than adults do. Both kids and adults surveyed believed the economy was the biggest problem facing the country (89 percent of adults and 64 percent of kids). Health care ranked second among both groups (25 percent of adults and 44 percent of kids). Kids were more likely to say war and the environment were the top issue, while adults were more likely to pick immigration and energy. The kids surveyed, however, were much more likely to agree with the statement, “I feel very hopeful that we will be able to fix our country’s problems” (58 percent agreed), whereas 75 percent of adults said, “I feel somewhat hopeful” or “I do not feel hopeful.” Regarding choosing the next president, kids believed honesty was the most important quality whereas adults split between honesty and intelligence.

Teens smoking, drinking less According to the report Monitoring the Future, teenagers are using cigarettes and alcohol at the lowest levels since the survey began in 1975. More teens, however, are using marijuana. The report is from an annual survey of students in eighth, 10th and 12th grades that is sponsored through the National Institutes of Health. The percentage of 12th-graders who had smoked tobacco in the past month was 19 percent, down from a high of 37 percent in 1997; and just 6 percent of eighthgraders reported smoking in the past month, versus 21 percent in 1996. As for alcohol use, 64 percent of 12th-graders drank in the past year, compared with 75 percent in the peak of 1997. The use among eighthgraders has also declined sharply since the peak. Binge drinking was also down. Marijuana use, however, has increased slightly in the past five years. Among 12th-graders, 36 percent said they had used it in the past year and 7 percent reported smoking daily (compared with 32 percent and 5 percent five years ago).

magic alive • In the spirit of the season,

parents help create special holiday memories of Jolly Saint Nick

By Alandra Johnson

“All of us need something we can see to believe in. Santa is the spirit of giving.”

The Bulletin

any children wake up Christmas morning thrilled to discover evidence of a late-night visit from Santa Claus. The round man in red left behind presents beneath the Christmas tree and stuffed the stockings to the brim. Some little ones also see that Jolly Saint Nick took bites from cookies and took sips of milk they had lovingly left out for him on Christmas Eve. Outside they see that Santa’s reindeer had left hoof prints in the snow. Some kids even bring back reports of hearing Santa’s sleigh land on their rooftop. Bend resident Cheri Smith was one of those kids who experienced the magic of Santa. As a child, Smith recalls listening to the radio as announcers tracked Santa’s path through the

sky on Christmas Eve. She remembers leaving milk and cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. One Christmas morning stands out. Smith remembers her dad, Chuck Malley, calling her and her brother outside to see crunched-up bits of carrot lining the walkway — evidence Santa’s reindeer had visited. Smith says she and her brother were giddy. These memories are precious to Smith. “It was

magical,” said Smith. “I just got tears in my eyes thinking about it.” (Editor’s note: Kids eagerly awaiting Santa to fill up their stockings may not want to read further in this story. We don’t want to ruin your holiday surprises with some Grinch-like information.) Now that Smith is a mom herself — to 1year-old Wyatt — she is excited for her son to get to appreciate the magic of Christmas as she did, although it may be a few years before he truly gets it. She loves the memory of finding the carrots because now she understands the extra effort her dad went to. Her dad always “goes over the top” to make Christmas special. “When I think back to it, it just gives me a really warm, happy feeling,” said Smith. See Holiday magic / E6

New York Times News Service

When my parents married in 1977, women’s liberation was in full swing and my mother was a consciousnessraiser. She was about as likely to take my father’s name as she was to sport a veil at the wedding. She would remain Ms. Tuhus. Nine months later, the surname for their new baby (me) was self-evident. My parents yoked their names into a new one: Tuhus-Dubrow. “I knew that was the best I could do,” my father told me. “As opposed to just Tuhus.” Other parents, albeit a small minority, had the same idea. By the mid-1970s more women were keeping their maiden names, so hyphenating the names of the children seemed like the next logical raspberry to blow at the

patriarchy, a stand against the family’s historical swallowing up of women’s identity. Hyphenation has other pluses. The invented names are distinctive; I’ve never come across a Tuhus-Dubrow outside my immediate family. The inconveniences — blank stares, egregious misspellings — are outweighed by the blessing of never having to worry about a Google doppelganger. The problem, of course, is that this naming practice is unsustainable. (Growing up, I constantly fielded the question, “What will you do if you marry someone else with two last names? Will your kids have four names?”) Like many of the baby boomers’ utopian impulses, it eventually had to run up against practical constraints. See Hyphenate / E6

GL AAD to ABC: ‘Work It’ doesn’t work

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.

By Frazier Moore The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Viewers may find ABC’s new sitcom “Work It� to be cringingly awful from an entertainment standpoint. But the show, which depicts two out-of-work chaps who dress as women to land jobs in a tough economy, has drawn fire from groups with a different complaint: They say “Work It� mocks the transgender community. “Though the show is not about transgender people, it’s about the notion that men presenting as women is funny,� said Herndon Graddick of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. “It re-enforces inaccurate and tired stereotypes that are injurious to transgender Americans,� said Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign, a civil rights organization working on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. HRC is joining GLAAD in urging supporters to ask ABC not to air the series, which is scheduled to premiere Jan. 3. On Wednesday, the two organizations placed a full-page ad in Daily Variety whose headline declares: “ ‘Work It’ will harm transgender people.� The ad continues, “By encouraging the audience to laugh at the characters’ attempts at womanhood, the show gives license to similar treatment of transgender women.� But is the campaign that targets “Work It� also, by extension, a broad denunciation of one of entertainment’s most enduring devices: cross-dressing for comic effect? This is a tradition that includes the late actor-drag queen Divine appearing in outrageous female roles in “Hairspray� and other John Waters films. Robin Williams played a man who adopted a persona as a Scottish nanny in the 1993 comedy “Mrs.

P’ G   M

From left, Kate Reinders, Kirstin Eggers, Rebecca Mader and Ben Koldyke star in “Work It,� due to premiere Jan. 3.

TV SPOTLIGHT Doubtfire.� In 1982, “Tootsie� starred Dustin Hoffman as an out-of-work actor who dresses up as a soft-spoken actress to land a woman’s role on a soap opera. The 1959 film classic “Some Like It Hot� starred Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis as two straight guys who disguise themselves as women to seek refuge in an all-girl band after witnessing a mob hit. Tom Hanks appeared with Peter Scolari in the 1980s sitcom “Bosom Buddies,� which depicted male roommates posing as women to gain entry to a budget-priced apartment building which admitted only female residents. Flash forward to “Work It,� which pairs what the network calls “two unrepentant guy’s guys� (Lee Standish, a family man, and Angel Ortiz, a ladies’ man) who lost their jobs at a car dealership and have gone a year without employment. “It’s not a recession, it’s a man-cession,� said a commiserating friend. “Women are taking over the workforce.� Soon, Lee (Ben Koldyke) hears of openings for sales reps at a pharmaceutical company. But the company is look-

ing for women, not men, to fill the slots. The company has hired guys in the past, Lee learns, but they didn’t work out: “The doctors seem to want to nail them less.� Lee knows what he must do: He dresses up as a woman, however preposterously, and wins a job from the unsuspecting firm. So does his buddy, Angel (Amaury Nolasco), who is similarly costumed. With their linebacker physiques, squeaky voices and amateurish makeup, neither man would fool a 5year-old, which is meant to be part of the joke. But while painfully unfunny, is “Work It� poised to inflict real damage on the transgender community? On Wednesday, ABC declined to comment on the brewing controversy, and declined to make anyone available from the show to discuss it.

Rating: PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence What it’s about: Super agent Ethan Hunt and a new team try to stop a madman bent on starting WW III. The kid attractor factor: Spectacular stunts, big explosions, way cool gadgets. Good lessons/bad lessons: Always take care of your friends, and “Failure to a terrorist is just a rehearsal for success.� Violence: Brawls, and lots of guns and knives and bombs, with a bit of blood to go along with it. Language: A smattering of mild profanity. Sex: Toyed with, including a hint of kinkiness. Drugs: Courage in a bottle is applied in a scene or two. Parents’ advisory: Quite violent and entirely too intense for very young viewers — but OK for 10 and older.

Tintin (voiced by Jamie Bell) is a newspaperman in search of a lost treasure in “The Adventures of Tintin.� See the full review in today’s GO! Magazine. Good lessons/bad lessons: The one place in the world to go when you’re stumped, when you need answers — the library. Violence: An awful lot of animated gun play. Language: Quite clean. Sex: Nope. Drugs: In the era this is set, smoking and getting drunk weren’t cardinal sins. Parents’ advisory: Sort of an animated Indiana Jones movie, pitched at a younger audience — suitable for all ages.

‘THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN’ ‘ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: Rating: PG for adventure action CHIPWRECKED’ violence, some drunkenness and brief smoking. What it’s about: The intrepid reporter and his clever dog travel the world to solve a mystery and find a treasure. The kid attractor factor: Treasure, mystery, a cute dog, all based on one of the world’s most popular comics.

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: Mildmannered kid-friendly comedy, best-suited to the 10-and-younger crowd.

A   & A 

First wife has heard enough of young replacement’s gab Dear Abby: After 19 years of marriage, my husband left me for a younger woman. I found out later that they had been dating for several years. They moved in together immediately after our separation, and she was pregnant at the divorce hearing. They had a baby boy eight months later. At every event with my kids, they come together with their son and she steers the conversation to her life, what’s going on, etc. I have tried to be silent and civil, but she ruined my daughter’s high school graduation by gossiping and giggling behind me and the kids the entire event. I am trying not to be a bitter ex, but I have had to bite back some nasty words to both of them. Any suggestions on how to deal with a miserably blended family? — Blended Family in Baton Rouge, La. Dear “Blended� Family: Yes, and please don’t think I am without sympathy. The surest way to deal with your miserably blended family is to make a conscious decision to get on with YOUR life. If you’re not interested in what the woman has to say, get up and move away. No one says you must listen to her prattle. Develop your own interests and activities, and meet some new friends. The stronger and more independent you become, the better off you’ll be. Trust me. Dear Abby: I have been in a relationship with “Anita� for four years. She moved in with me two years ago and our home life has been wonderful. We are a unique couple. We have discussed marriage, but neither of us believes in the tradition. I’d like to show Anita how much I love her, as well as show others we’re in a serious relationship. An engagement ring would be a way to show it. However, the term “engagement� would not be accurate

DEAR ABBY because we do not plan to marry. Can you suggest another symbol or even another term for a ring to show unity without indicating the eventuality of marriage? — Romantic in Ohio Dear Romantic: How about calling Anita’s ring a commitment ring? Or give her a pendant with a sweet message engraved on the back? Or a wristwatch engraved with, “Love ya ’til the end of time,� or “... ’til time runs out.� Another way to indicate to others that you’re together but don’t believe in “tradition� would be to hold a commitment ceremony and invite friends. Dear Abby: There is an issue driving a wedge between my wife and me. I have always believed that my casual shirts (in fact, all my shirts) should be worn tucked into my slacks. My wife feels they should be left out. I think I look better with them tucked in. Abby, you can save our marriage if you’ll let us know who is right. To tuck, or not to tuck — that is the question. And, by the way, she says I should mention that I have a bodacious waistline, which means I could lose 40 pounds. — Friar “Tucked� in Longmont, Colo. Dear “Tucked�: Your wife is your best friend and she is right. (If you doubt it, consult a men’s haberdasher.) By leaving your shirt out, you would appear to be a few pounds thinner. When you tuck it in, your “bodacious� waistline is accentuated by a horizontal line, which makes you appear to be heavier. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

By Jacqueline Bigar Your emotions come out more often than you might like this year. Sometimes they could be disguised as anger, especially if you have suppressed the original issue or pain. Learn to detach when your fuse is about to blow. This issue will be major, with the potential outcome of greater self-control. You are in control of your destiny, if you so choose. If you are single, note a tendency to attract emotionally unavailable relationships. Be careful! If you are attached, the two of you benefit from time alone together as a couple. Plan on a special vacation or several weekends away. SAGITTARIUS sometimes makes you uncomfortable. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Keep reaching for the stars. Once focused, you could be stunned by what you can accomplish. Don’t forget a dear friend at a distance. If someone becomes belligerent, it probably is the result of envy. Tonight: Light up the night with music. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Deal with another person directly. You might feel quite irritated with this person. Clear the air if you want to manifest the loving vibes of the next few days. Avoid sarcastic comments; they will be remembered. Center on your feelings. Tonight: Togetherness. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Someone knocks on your door, and yet another person does the same. Your popularity soars, and you feel much more connected than you have in a long time. You will need to make space to complete a certain task. Join a partner or friend to finish last-minute errands. Tonight: Say “yes.� CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH You make quite an effort to make a difference to someone. Don’t make a comment a reason to become angry. Know that many people’s nerves are fried. Stay attentive when around machinery, as you could be unusually distracted. Tonight: Completing, not beginning. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Your childlike nature delights in the holiday celebrations. Whatever plans you have, you delight in the moment. Your fiery personality perks up others. Use care with lastminute items. You easily could go

overboard. A little self-discipline goes a long way. Tonight: Frolic away. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Tension builds, and you have difficulty handling it all. You want to choose a stress-buster instead of losing your temper with someone who doesn’t deserve it. Spend some extra hours at home if possible. Check in with a family member. Tonight: At home. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH You cannot suppress certain feelings, and they could come out in a distorted manner, as in sarcasm or yelling at the cat. With everything at such a spin, you need to clear the air. Listen to what is shared by a close friend. Tonight: Stop and do some last-minute errands before partaking in eggnog. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH A friend could play a strong role in your mood. Understanding evolves as you detach. Be careful when making an attempt to clear the air. In some fashion, it could be rather extreme and, in the long run, inadvisable. Remain appropriate. Tonight: Start sharing holiday wishes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH If you can tolerate being pushed by another person, you deserve kudos. Keep your cool, and don’t lose sight of certain priorities. Others count on you getting the job done. Touch base with an older but feisty friend. Tonight: Whatever makes you smile. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Know when to pull back and let others dominate. You might feel as if you cannot cover all the bases. Don’t hesitate to ask a question or two. Ask for help if you need it. Accept what is happening right now. Tonight: Just flow with the moment. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Make sure you indulge a little and do less of what you think you must. Stop and take time to visit with key friends. Take the opportunity to share your feelings with a special friend or loved one. This person appreciates your time and caring. Tonight: Where your friends are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Establish your role with your friends or associates. So many people count on you, you might not have room for any slack. A partner or relative could be aggravated that you are spread so thin. Tonight: Make time for a special person, in the midst of all the business. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Do storms, disasters produce more conceptions? By John Keilman and Elizabeth Owens-Schiele Chicago Tribune

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Friday, Dec. 23, 2011


CHICAGO — Gene Hall gave birth on a Thursday morning to her third daughter, Kayla — a baby that, when you do the math, was conceived in the aftermath of February’s colossal blizzard. “We were stuck in the house that week because of the snow, my husband and I and our kids, all homebound, playing games and watching movies,� Hall, 32, of Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood, said before the delivery. “When I look back now, I remember my husband and I got some good quality time together. “We thought we were done having children. This snowstorm baby was a blessed surprise.� It’s a surprise you might expect to be widespread. For decades, disruptive events like storms and power outages have been anecdotally linked to a spike in birth rates nine months later. Couples are stuck inside and bereft of distractions, and so, the theory goes, nature takes its amorous course. The premise, however, is proving to be short on

supporting evidence, at least where Chicago’s blizzard babies are concerned. Most hospitals contacted by the Tribune say they haven’t seen a jump in recent deliveries.

Some tales don’t hold up But settling the question definitively is a tough task. Carl Haub, a demographer with the Population Reference Bureau in Washington, D.C., said years of data must be gathered on either side of a single event to discern whether it was responsible for an elevated birth rate. “You really have to see a spike and be able to demonstrate that that’s not a normal spike,� he said. “It’s going to be up and down no matter what.� Mini-baby booms have been popularly associated with everything from calamities (floods, ice storms, terrorist attacks) to celebrations (the Olympics, the World Cup, the Super Bowl). But they have often been picked apart by skeptics wielding the tools of statistical analysis. The most famous critique came in 1970, five years after a prolonged blackout in New York City supposedly produced a spike in births. Public health researcher J. Richard Udry looked at six years of data and declared that there had, in fact, been no increase

attributable to the blackout. “It is evidently pleasing to many people to (fantasize) that when people are trapped by some immobilizing event which deprives them of their usual activities, most will turn to copulation,� he wrote. Udry’s finding is frequently viewed as the final word in “disaster babies� — the popular debunking website Snopes. com cites it in declaring the phenomenon a myth — but more contemporary research suggests there might be something to the idea. A 2005 study of birth rates following the Oklahoma City bombing looked at 10 years of data and found that the counties closest to the site had indeed experienced higher than expected numbers of births after the attack. The researchers concluded that couples, confronted with stark evidence of life’s fragility, might have been motivated to reproduce to ensure that their genetic line would carry on. But perhaps the most intriguing evidence supporting the idea of disaster babies was published last year by Brigham Young University economist Richard Evans. He and his colleagues looked at hurricaneprone counties on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and compared birth rates that came nine

months after the announcement of impending storms. They found that while the rates went up after the mildest expected disruption (a tropical storm watch) they went down after the most serious (a hurricane warning). “For low-level catastrophes ... you’re indoors. The electricity is out. You’ve got nothing else to do, so you have increased sexuality,� Evans said. “But with something severe, you can’t make babies if you’re running for your life.� He said that for a blizzard, which he equated to a tropical storm watch, he would expect about a 2 percent bump in births — a tot windfall that would come from people like Amanda Jurgovan. She and her husband, Eric, had tried for more than three years to have their first child. She was closely charting her ovulation cycles, and all the signs were right when the blizzard struck. Being snowbound just clinched the deal, she said. Their daughter Mckenna was born on Oct. 13, two weeks early. “When we found out we were pregnant, we looked back and we were like, ‘Oh, we had a blizzard baby,’ � said Jurgovan, 28, of Crystal Lake, Ill. “It was like it was meant to be. It was obvious when we conceived.�

Hyphenate Continued from E1 I don’t have children yet, but plenty of others in my cohort — the first in which nontrivial numbers were born hyphenated — do. And reproducing while hyphenated brings inevitable quandaries. I was curious to see how my peers have handled them. So I asked around. What I found was a whole gamut of solutions. The name-blending pioneers now have grandchildren whose names embody an intriguing mix of the traditional and the maverick. I encountered several women who kept their own hyphenated names when they married, but gave their children the father’s surname. This scenario seems to deviate the least from the mainstream: After all, many other women with single surnames do the same. Zoe Segal-Reichlin, 33, a lawyer for Planned Parenthood in New York, was typical in her approach to naming her son, now 10 months old. She said she flirted with alternatives: hyphenating three names, picking either Segal or Reichlin to link with her husband’s name. But ultimately, none felt quite right, and going with the father’s name won out as the most practical choice. “It was the best of bad options,” she told me. Same-sex couples face their own quandaries, since there is no tradition to follow. Cora Jeyadame (nee Stubbs-Dame), 37, a first-grade teacher in Newton, Mass., was determined to share a name with her child, and to think ahead more than her own parents had.

Holiday magic Continued from E1

Why create magic? Why do some parents go to extra lengths to create Christmas magic? Why do they create “evidence” of Santa? For that matter, why do parents perpetuate the myth of Santa Claus at all? Jacqui Woolley, a professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, studies how children understand reality and fantasy. She has a few ideas about why parents go to lengths to encourage kids to believe. Parents see their children as innocent. They want their children to believe in magic and “live in a world where everything is possible and where anything can happen,” said Woolley. By encouraging the belief in Santa, parents hope to prolong childhood for their kids. Carole Slotterback, psychology professor at the University of Scranton and author of “The Psychology of Santa,” says parents play Santa to “see the wonder in kids’ eyes” and so kids can believe “there’s magic in the world beyond the everyday.” Woolley says parents also want their kids to experience some of the same things they did as children. “It brings back memories for us as kids.” Slotterback also says believing in Santa and the rituals connected with that — from crunched-up carrots on the sidewalk to posing with Santa at the mall — can serve as traditions to connect families and generations together. But the question remains, do kids really buy into it? Woolley’s answer: It depends.

What kids believe By age 3, most children know some things are real and some things are make-believe. They just don’t always know which things go into which category. Woolley says between ages 3 and 8, kids work to put things into the right group. While most young kids realize monsters aren’t real, they still believe in Santa. “But that doesn’t mean they are confused about fantasy and reality,” said Woolley. Kids have simply received a lot of evidence about the existence of Santa and heard from people they trust that he exists. Woolley says it is actually “perfectly rational” for little kids to believe in Santa, given all the evidence they receive that Santa is real — from the half-eaten cookies to watching movies about him to listening to reports from friends who also believe. Woolley says researchers are still figuring out whether believing in Santa helps kids.

Erik Jacobs / New York Times News Service

Nathan Lamarre-Vincent and Sarah Miller with their children Cormac, 4, and Kellan Lamarre-Vincent, in Somerville, Mass. People with hyphenated surnames face quandaries when giving their own children a last name: Some follow tradition, and some get creative.

“It’s a one-generation solution,” she said of hyphenation. She and her wife, whose surname was Jeyapalan, spliced their names together into an entirely new, hyphenless amalgam. How did they decide on the name? “I actually put it out on Facebook,” she said: “ ‘I challenge you to come up with good combinations.’ ” The winning entry, Jeyadame, is the legal surname of Cora and her 4-month-old; her wife uses it socially. Naming decisions raise novel questions for hyphenated men. There is little precedent of husbands chang-

ing their names at marriage or giving up the prerogative to pass their names on. Traditional practices grew out of a male-dominated culture and a need for simple rules. But there is another, less obvious motive: to hold men accountable for their offspring. “How do you attach men to children?” asked Laurie Scheuble, a senior lecturer at Pennsylvania State University who has done several studies on naming practices. Names are “a very functional and practical way” to do so. But perhaps, in an age when men wear BabyBjorns, it is

no longer always necessary. When Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, 32, an English professor who lives in Portland, married Laura Rosenbaum, he toyed with the idea of a creative synthesis. But “Rosenpollackpelznerbaum sounded like a weapon of mass destruction,” he said. When they had a son, giving him Daniel’s last name seemed too complicated, so they gave the baby Laura’s. Pollack-Pelzner initially worried that having a different name would arouse suspicions, leading to airport frisks and other indignities.

They do know that pretending and fantasy play benefit kids and relate to the development of creativity. In some ways, believing in Santa is an “exercise in imagining what could be possible,” which she thinks is an important human trait that connects to ambition and discovery. We know reindeer can’t fly; but to suspend reality and think “maybe it could be like that” is a positive thing, according to Woolley. It is not such a leap from scientists who think “maybe there could be a cure for cancer.” They are “stretching their ideas about what could be real.” Slotterback adds that kids who fantasize tend to be more mature and also more popular with their peers.

ents for her under the tree. Her folks told her that Santa needed a little extra help that year. “Up until then, I really believed Santa Claus existed.” After that, though Doty played along, “I knew in the back of my mind Santa Claus was imagined. I still had the desire to believe.” For Doty, this remains a positive memory, and her feelings about Santa remain strong. “All of us need something we can see to believe in,” said Doty. “Santa is the spirit of giving.” It is common for some children to continue to play along. On some level they may still believe or want to believe, says Woolley. Some children could be worried that they won’t get any presents if they stop believing or think their parents will be disappointed. In some ways, finding out can be a positive, if done right. Woolley says some children can become excited if they get to then help play Santa for younger children. It can be a rite of passage. Some children perform little experiments to try to find out the truth, says Woolley. “In a way it’s kind of cool,” said Woolley, as if they are detectives tracking down clues. Some kids also gain a sense of pride if they are able to figure out the answer on their own. This happened to Woolley’s daughter. She could tell that her daughter was beginning to have doubts. But instead of sitting down and having a long talk, Woolley decided to give her daughter a few clues. She stopped changing her handwriting on the gift tags from Santa. “She thinks she is the smartest thing in the world because she figured it out,” said Woolley. Slotterback says focusing

on the magical aspects of Santa may also help take away the focus on material goods and receiving gifts. Santa can help kids think about the giving aspect of the holiday. “You can really use it as a springboard to a lot of things,” said Slotterback, such as “helping Santa.” The bottom line, according to Woolley, is there is no reason for parents not to embrace

Finding out At some point, kids find out that Santa is really Mom and Dad. Smith remembers finding out from a friend when she was 7 or 8. Although she was disappointed, she wasn’t upset with her parents. “I never felt like they tricked me or lied to me. It was a wonderful experience as a kid to believe in Santa.” Parents may worry about what kind of impact this may have on kids. There aren’t many studies about this subject. Slotterback has surveyed college students in her classes about Santa. Only two reported negative experiences — one because parents told the child Santa had a heart attack and died. “I do not recommend that,” said Slotterback. “For the most part, college students don’t remember how they found out” about Santa, she said. She also points to two identical surveys conducted with fourth- to eighth-graders in Nebraska — one in 1896 and one in 1978. Researchers asked kids if parents should teach Santa to little kids and the overwhelming response was yes. “They thought it was a good thing,” said Slotterback. “It’s fun to believe.” A small percentage each year of the study — between 2 and 6 percent — reported feeling betrayed. So there is a slim chance kids will react poorly. Woolley, however, believes there isn’t any real danger. “I think it does not mess (kids) up.” Prineville resident Ellen Doty remembers when she began to understand some of the mystery behind Santa. It was 1963 and she was 7 years old when she woke up Christmas Eve after a bad dream. She wandered out to find her dad and sister working to put together a doll house and her mom putting a doll into a lovely dress. The next morning, Doty found those pres-

But since his son was born, “I’ve hardly thought about it at all.” No one has ever challenged whether he is the toddler’s father: “The poor guy is cursed to look just like me.” In a 2002 paper, Scheuble and her husband, David Johnson, a Penn State professor, predicted that the importance of a family name could begin to decline. Thanks to more divorce, remarriage, samesex unions and retention of maiden names, it is far from unusual for members of the same nuclear family to bear different surnames. Nevertheless, the vast majority of families stick with custom. According to a 2009 study analyzing data from 2004, only 6 percent of native-born American married women had unconventional surnames (meaning they kept their birth names, hyphenated with their husbands’ names, or pulled a Hillary Rodham Clinton). I know lots of women, including myself, who kept their birth names at marriage. But according to my anecdotal observations, which others seconded, rates of hyphenation seem to have fallen since my brother and I were born. As Segal-Reichlin said, “At the time I think they thought they were going to be the wave of the future,” but it has not panned out that way. Still, hyphenated names are not entirely a relic of the ’70s, like sideburns and lava lamps: Witness the Jolie-Pitts.

the Santa mythology. But it also isn’t necessary. If crumbling carrots in the driveway sounds fun, do it. If it sounds tedious and like one more chore, skip it. In the end, Woolley says, “it largely boils down to fun.” And how much the magic of Christmas moves you. — Reporter: 541-617-7860,

Question Continued from E1 Children perceive traffic differently than adults, and often have difficulty judging speed and distance. Many are also under the false impression that cars can stop instantly, and believe that if they can see the car, the car’s driver can see them. Also, children lack a realistic sense of danger, which is crucial out on the road. Potwin said another issue relates to children’s ability to concentrate. “Concentration skills are essential for safe riding and walking,” Potwin said. “These skills are developed as the child matures.” Though each child has a different level of maturity, Potwin recommended general guidelines based on age. Children ages 4 to 6 do unexpected things, so adult supervision is crucial. Potwin said that at these ages, children are ready to practice the basics, and it’s important for adults to model safe behaviors with them. Ages 7 to 9 years old are ready to learn more complicated skills, Potwin said, but adult supervision is still needed. “Children ages 10 and older are ready for a mix of independence and supervision.” Potwin recommends that children these ages stick to a regular route where adults have pointed out hazards. He also recommends parents revisit and reiterate traffic skills. Potwin says it’s important for parents to understand the developmental stages in which children learn, and to instruct and model safety. In terms of explaining safety to children, Potwin says it really depends on the child. Some children are able to absorb information better through hands-on exercises. Others benefit from home instruction and practice in a safe environment before having hands-on exercises. — Reporter: 541-383-0354,

f you watch one of singer and guitarist Scott Pemberton’s YouTube videos of him playing live, you might happen to notice his smile and playful expressions. “That’s the main objective, really. Music for me, it’s all the same. It’s just life. It’s really (about) finding joy in the process, like just enjoying the whole thing. So, (even) trying to program the way that we tour — the routes that we take — to be positive so that when we get there we can just have a really good time,” he told The Bulletin. “Making life be fun, and the show be fun.” Pemberton’s mirth is abundantly clear on the seven-minute funk number “Let’s Play House,” in which he sings about how eating grapefruit alone doesn’t feel quite right. “You can be the mommy,” he sings, “and I’ll be the daddy, so let’s pretend to make a baby.” You may also notice Pemberton’s nimble fingers, but don’t fret: He has all the skills of a born shredder, and seemingly none of the God’s-gift-to-guitar attitude of his axe-wielding forebears. Pemberton and his band have about 90 songs to choose from, ranging from jazz funk and rock to Beatles and Hendrix covers adapted to his style, so each show winds up being a little different. “I kind of program the show to follow … where people’s interests are,” he said. “See what people are enjoying, program accordingly.” Pemberton said his Scott Pemberton Trio and Scott Pemberton Super Band — the latter a supergroup formed from the different combos he plays with live — are already well-established in Portland, where the guitarist was born and raised. On Thursday (see “If you go”) he’ll return to McMenamin’s Old St. Francis School in Bend, bringing two of those players with him. Pemberton became a guitarist by way of the saxophone. From a young age, he knew he wanted to be a professional musician. Though he played sax in his high school band, he believed it wasn’t quite the right instrument for expressing himself. Then, at about age 16, he picked up his dad’s guitar. Continued next page

From previous page “When I found the guitar, that was, like, the thing,” he said. “I could tell right away.” His folkie dad showed him “some chords and things,” but otherwise, Pemberton said, he taught himself to play. “I transferred everything I had learned on saxophone over to the guitar,” he said. “That was my goal. So the way that I approached scales and everything was just teaching myself that … jazz vocabulary that I had learned from saxophone.” A year or two later, he began attending Mt. Hood Community College, were “everybody was way better than me because I’d only been playing for a little bit.” To get into the college jazz band, “I had to out-audition all the guitarists who had been playing a lot longer. So I figured if I practiced six times as much as they all did, then in a couple of years … I would be able to beat them.” Did it work out that way? “Yeah, totally,” he said. “There were, like, four good guitarists I had to beat. It was exciting.” There were other positive effects


from working hard at that level (band kids, pay attention!). Pemberton began meeting other Portland musicians and did some music teaching at MHCC, which would lead to more teaching at the college level. After he graduated, he took two years off just to practice guitar, and played in bands and toured in Canada and Japan. When Pemberton’s wife became pregnant, he was just 22. He settled in and got serious, working as a session player, private instructor and teacher first at Lewis & Clark College and then Reed College, where he still teaches. “I’m really, really happy with how it all worked out,” he said. When his wife became pregnant, “it felt really disruptive. Now I’m only 35, and my kids are kind of old enough where I can get back out, whereas some of my other friends, guitar mentors and such, might not have started having kids until they were in their 40s.” About a year ago, Pemberton started launching regional tours from Portland, where he still plays a weekly gig every Tuesday and rides his bike, towing his gear to shows.

For a while, a bicycle was his only means of transportation. Now he has a van, a true sign of someone who’s serious about touring. Pemberton said he’s more sensible than he was in his twenties, and less likely to make the rookie mistakes he might have then. “And I had a lot of good practice time between then and now,” he said. Pemberton’s recording a new album of original material, with Steve Berlin of Los Lobos fame producing. Recording should wrap up next week, with the album slated to drop in March. “If you saw the YouTube videos, it’s similar material,” he explained. “It’s good fun, dance rock, sort of like if you had James Brown and Jimi Hendrix and some B-52s or something and put that all together. “It’s kind of hard to describe. The way I kind of see it, too, is combining a lot of familiar flavors,” he continued. “Basically, it’s like combining my influences to create one sound, as opposed to following one of those influences.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,

A couple gets down to the sounds of The River Pigs last Friday at Crossings Lounge in Bend.

• Longtime dance spot Crossings Lounge will halt live music after New Year’s Eve By Rachael Rees The Bulletin


or Carl Ventis, The Reputations’ New Year’s Eve performance at Crossings Lounge at The Riverhouse in Bend will mark the end of an era. “There’s going to be tears flowing from my eyes at the end of the night,” said Ventis, who sings and plays bass in the band. For the past 30 years, The Riverhouse’s restaurant and bar has been a space for live music. But after The Reputations play their set on New Year’s Eve, the stage will be replaced with shuffleboard games and pool tables. For local bands, this means the loss of thousands of dollars in income, while for Central Oregon residents — particularly those of the Baby Boomer generation who frequented the place — it’s one less venue offering live music and a place to dance. “We take costs of what we’re doing into consideration, and it doesn’t make sense anymore to continue with the bands,” said David Sturm, director of food and beverage at The Riverhouse. While Sturm lauded the quality of the bands that played at Crossings, he said the demographics of the venue have changed, eliminating the marketplace for live music. “Music doesn’t fit our guests anymore,” he said. “Our guests are looking for interactive entertainment.” Twenty years ago, Sturm said, Crossings was the place to go on Bend’s nightlife scene. But now, the bands don’t generate enough revenue to justify the cost of bringing

them in, he said. Ventis, 58, said losing his regular gigs at Crossings will cost him $6,000 annually, forcing him to take on more music students to make up the loss in his income. “They’re taking bands that are local and putting people out of work,” he said. “You could always count on (Crossings); they would book us for six months in advance.” Ventis said he’s thankful for the time The Reputations had to play at Crossings over the past decade and hopes management will change its mind. But in the meantime, he plans to take the band’s audience with him to other locations in town. “We’ll find a different place to play,” he said, “because that is what musicians do.” Scott Foxx, the guitar, fiddle and mandolin player in The River Pigs, another longtime Crossings band, said the last thing Bend needs is another nonmusic venue. While he admitted he saw dwindling crowds at the bar, he said he never expected live music to stop completely. “It was pretty much a shock to us,” Foxx said. “It would have been nice to cut the wages instead.” Sturm, however, said the venue’s regular bands not only knew the end was near, they generally recognized the reasoning behind the move. “(The musicians) understood a change was taking place,” he said. “They were understanding of the decision and they helped us understand what direction we needed to go in.”

When Foxx, 58, first started playing at Crossings, he said his band would be booked to play for six nights a week. Over the past couple of years, however, that changed to three nights per week, he said. Foxx said all of the bands who played regularly at Crossings found out about the decision in November. They were told that the venue would honor gigs until the end of the year and then live music would end, he said. “Its a shame,” he said. “I don’t blame the club for much. With the recession people haven’t been coming out like they used to.” Steve Hartwell, musical director of The Reputations, said Crossings was an anchor gig for the band and now he’s not sure what the band will do next. “We don’t have a plan of where we are going to play,” he said. “There’s no contract in Bend that is even close to The Riverhouse.” Continued next page

PAGE 6 • GO! MAGAZINE F rom previous page Hartwell, 51, said many resorts are trimming down entertainment or eliminating it, so The Reputations will either target casinos or go on the road for paying jobs. “The biggest change in the industry is the replacement of live music,” he said. “There’s a tenth of the

music amount of venues.” Sturm, too, noted the general shift away from live music in the region. “All the bars that offer entertainment,” he said, “(there are) more and more that have DJs.” River Pigs vocalist and bassist Val Billington said all bands in the area are fighting

for diminishing gigs. Many venues don’t want to pay bands, she said. They want them to play for exposure. “Everybody in our band has been doing this for a very long time,” she said. “They aren’t going to do it for free.” Losing live music at Crossings is going to create a big hole for local bands who depend on the gig, Billington said, as well as for people who regularly show up to dance to the music, such as Allen Regnier, who goes to Crossings frequently. “It’s very depressing to see the loss of live music,” he said. “It’s been a cornerstone of the community.” Regnier — a 49-year-old Argentine tango dancer — and his wife have regularly made the drive to Crossings from their home in Madras


for the music and the dance floor. He said a large community of tango, West Coast swing, salsa, and ballroom dancers patronized the venue. “Crossings has been our first choice,” he said. “It really has been the best dance floor in the area.” Regnier’s wife, Carrie McPeak Regnier, 54, has been dancing at Crossings for the past seven years. She said that while other places in Central Oregon have live music, their atmosphere is generally not conducive or welcoming to social dancers. “The last place that we looked forward to going is closing,” she said. “Now, we’re going to have to go to Portland more often.” — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

Parrilla Grill’s normal Saturday concert series shifts to Friday this weekend because who wants to eat burritos, drink beer and listen to music on Christmas Eve? (Don’t answer that.) Tonight’s entertainment is being billed as the Ransom-James Holiday Show, in which local troubadours Mark Ransom (sweet and poppy, pictured at left) and Leif James (gruff and bluesy) will do a set of tunes to tickle your ears. Will they play Christmas songs? Presumably. That’s part of the fun! Also part of the fun: the burritos and the beer. See details below.

HILST & COFFEY PLAYS MCMENAMINS The stage in Father Luke’s Room at McMenamins Old St. Francis School doesn’t often sing with music

Monday nights, but then most Monday nights don’t have potential as an escape from your home between Christmas and New Year’s. Next week’s Monday does, and so local chamber-folk duo Hilst & Coffey will take that stage and play their usual eclectic repertoire with the help of guests Franchot Tone and John Cashman. Details below.

JONES ROAD AT THE SUMMIT SALOON Jones Road’s “The Whipping Boy” EP is one of the finer slabs of hard rock recorded in Central Oregon in 2011, and on Thursday, the band will bring its sound — southern rock, brooding grunge, occasional acoustic quietude — to life at The Summit Saloon & Stage.

music releases Michael Jackson

The Fall

“IMMORTAL” Epic Records This early into the musical afterlife of Michael Jackson, it’s hard to know how to react to something like “Immortal.” Should we be excited about an officially sanctioned DJ mix/score to the new Cirque du Soleil production of the same name, peppered with odd vocal interludes, weird New Age accents, crazy funk breakdowns and something called “The Mime Segment”? Or should we reserve our enthusiasm for whatever lies in the archive that’s rarer and/or more revealing of our fallen superstar, no doubt waiting in the wings for the next prime-time opportunity? More precisely: Whose interest is “Immortal” serving? Is the goal to expand Jackson as an artist, an estate, a brand or a visionary? Big questions out of the way (and unaddressed), “Immortal” is a double-disc mix of Jackson’s hits both as a solo artist and as a member of the Jacksons and the Jackson 5. (It’s also available in a single-disc “highlights” version.) It was compiled and recontextualized by Kevin Antunes in much the same way that George Martin and Giles Martin reworked the Beatles’ catalog for the Cirque production and soundtrack to “Love,” the dance company’s interpre-

“ERSATZ G.B.” Cherry Red Records The dominant voice by Mark E. Smith on The Fall’s 29th album, “Ersatz G.B.,” or at least the funniest, and the one that creates the moments you will remember, is a hard, monstrous, guttural yell, like something coming from a very angry baby lodged inside an old man. He uses it best on “Greenway,” a song named after a current guitarist in the band, Pete Greenway, whose aggressive sound unspools, supercharged, all over the record, and who for some reason is not credited on the CD insert as a member of the band.

Kate Bush “50 WORDS FOR SNOW” ANTI- Records Kate Bush has been regarded as a spirit saint by a generation of musicians such as Björk and Tori Amos as well as younger ones such as Florence Welch and Leslie Feist. All that adoration in the ether must’ve stirred the reclusive British singer-songwriter to create not just one album this year

tation of the Liverpool band’s oeuvre. “Immortal” is also, at its worst, way cheesier than “Love.” But to call it a mixtape of Jackson’s music isn’t entirely accurate because the soundtrack is beholden to the Cirque/ “Immortal” story line and therefore sequenced not for the dance floor but for a Las Vegas-style production. But aside from a few weird choices, none of this is Antunes’ fault. After all, who’d want to fiddle with “Human Nature,” “Beat It” or “Billie Jean,” some of the most popular songs of the last half-century? That he mostly pulls it off is a testament to his abilities as a sound designer, though it’s not rich enough to make this essential listening. For that, there’s “Thriller” and “Off the Wall.” — Randall Roberts, Los Angeles Times

(“Director’s Cut”) but a second one too, “50 Words for Snow,” an art-song cycle that veers from delicate to blustery, but always with a sheen of elegance. The opening track, “Snowflake,” is written from the point of view of falling snow, the kind of precious conceit only Bush could get away with, but it’s a committed trance recharged by Steve Gadd’s fantastic drumming. For all the concentration on the album, there’s energy and humor too. “Misty” depicts a little knocking boots with a snowman, and on “Snowed In at Wheeler Street,” duet partner Elton John sings with more conviction than he has in years. It might be cold in Bush’s world, but it’s far from frozen. It’s the vanishing world illuminated by a furnace-blast of life. — Margaret Wappler, Los Angeles Times

Hot Chelle Rae “WHATEVER” RCA Records Like Ke$ha without the Jack Daniel’s bottle, Hot Chelle Rae specializes in watered-down party music — its polished summer smash “Tonight Tonight,” with the line about dancing on the edge of the Hollywood sign, is as crazy as this Nashville pop-rock quartet gets. Talented people are in this band, beginning with Ryan Follese, who has an effective regularguy falsetto, but “Whatever” has the feel of filling studio quotas. “Tonight Tonight” is here, as are such studied reproductions as “I

The name, shouted, becomes the refrain: “Greeen-waaay!” As usual, most songs are built on one or two hard vamps with a passionately abstract intuitive mess on top, wrought by Smith’s irritable and inventive words,

Like It Like That” and “Downtown Girl”; “Beautiful Freaks” is the requisite dance anthem, with the Auto-Tuned “oh oh oh oh oh” chorus and layered synth bursts; and weepy ballads “Why Don’t You Love Me” and “The Only One” follow Good Charlotte and OneRepublic blueprints. There may be more to Hot Chelle Rae than the band shows on its second album. On “Radio,” this line pops up out of nowhere: “I stayed up till 5 last night just to say I miss you/ Thank God for free Wi-Fi/ And the key to the minibar/ We fell asleep on Skype/ I almost missed my flight.” If this kind of strong songwriting points

Amy Winehouse “LIONESS: HIDDEN TREASURES” Universal Republic Records “Like smoke, I stick around,” Winehouse rasps on a tune of the same name on her first posthumous release since her death in July at age 27. As a pop culture figure, Winehouse will stick around in people’s imaginations for some time. She was a formidable talent and left a huge impression. “Lioness: Hidden Treasures,” a collection of odds-’n’-ends recorded from 2002 through this year’s duet of “Body and Soul” with Tony Bennett for his standards album, “Duets II” (and repeated here) doesn’t make

a strong case that she would have outdone her classic 2006 breakthrough “Back to Black.” Only two “new” songs turn up on “Lioness”: “Like Smoke,” for which rapper Nas does the majority of the vocalizing, and

making familiar jargon seem like foreign language, and his sonic interruptions as a producer. The mess can be tense and charmed, or just dull. “Ersatz G.B.” is too often dull. The band and Smith are doing much the same as ever. (Greenway and the whomping, just-thebasics drummer Keiron Melling, are the MVPs.) But if you compare this record to the Fall’s last two, “Imperial Wax Solvent” (2008) was more mysterious, better articulated and funnier; “Your Future Our Clutter” (2010) was harder rocking and thematically more coherent. — Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

the way forward, Hot Chelle Rae might have a chance to break out of its formula and build on “Tonight Tonight.” — Steve Knopper, Newsday

“Between the Cheats,” a great song title and presumably about her tumultuous, drug-fueled relationship with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married in Miami four years ago. The two songs, are strong melodically and cling to the brilliant updating of vintage ’60s girl group pop Winehouse offered on “Black.” Though not a classic album, as posthumous releases go, “Lioness” never feels like the crass money-grabs Michael Jackson’s two recent post-death albums (“Michael,” “Immortal”) are. “Lioness” is eminently listenable, engaging, sad and a suitable accompaniment to her unfortunately small body of work. — Howard Cohen, The Miami Herald

Weekly download ‘ZOMBIE GUNSHIP’ Reviewed for: iPhone/iPod Touch/ iPad (universal app) From: Limbic Software iTunes Store Rating: 9+ (infrequent/mild realistic violence, infrequent/mild horror/fear themes) Price: $1 It’s hard to be mystified by the explosive popularity of mobile gaming when games like “Zombie Gunship” — which takes one of the most popular mission styles from a $60 “Call of Duty” game and practically gives it away — keep springing up. “Gunship” puts you at the controls of an AC-130 gunship, and if the aircraft needs no introduction, the game’s presentation — a semi-blurry, night vision-esque visual filter, presented from an altitude that makes zombies and fleeing humans look like ants — won’t need one, either. The customary weapons are at your disposal, and the object is simple: Help humans reach the bunker safely before zombies overwhelm the perimeter. “Gunship” doesn’t aim much higher than that. You’re playing essentially for high score, and the game’s two maps aren’t tied into any kind of narrative. But that’s plenty good enough for the price. — Billy O’Keefe, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

• Popular Bend restaurant and lounge touches down on Bond Street By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin


f you haven’t been to The Astro Lounge in its new location on Bond Street, don’t expect it to be anything like its previous incarnation on Minnesota Avenue. The popular downtown Bend bar and restaurant moved into new digs in July, and owner Josh Maquet couldn’t be more pleased. “I love the façade,” said Maquet. “It has big high windows that allow you to look inside as you drive past, to see what’s going on. “I love the tall brick walls,” he said, noting that they frame the room on its south and north sides

and provide space to display a large liquor inventory. He also appreciates the length of his new space, previously a Sisters Coffee and Subway sandwich outlet. It extends past the bar and a row of high-backed booths to a 600-square-foot patio and fire pit that face a rear alley. “The fact that the room is so long allows the bartenders to keep an eye on the entire room,” Maquet said. Capacity is 90, nearly twice the number of patrons that could be accommodated at the former dark, intimate lounge space.

Maquet, 39, was born in Illinois, studied restaurant and hotel management at Colorado State University, then found his way to Oregon. He moved to Bend in 1998 and became the first and only manager of the Astro when it opened in 2001.

Simplified menu The Astro is a restaurant as well as a lounge, with a modestly priced menu of small plates, salads, sandwiches and pizzas appealing to a palate that wants something more than traditional deep-fried bar food. Continued next page

The arugula salad at The Astro Lounge in Bend.

From previous page “We simplified the menu, due to the fact that we are still training our cooks, and we are serving twice as many people from a smaller kitchen than before,” Maquet said. Daily blackboard specials are planned, he said, enabling patrons to choose from a couple of home-style entrees in addition to the regular menu. In the meantime, the food is really pretty good. On one solo visit, I had a salad and a pizza. On another occasion, my dining companion and I shared a starter and each had a hearty sandwich. We were never disappointed. I shouldn’t be surprised. Maquet is a graduate of Portland’s Western Culinary Institute and a former sous chef at the Broken Top Club. Although his position now is more management than food prep, he takes it upon himself to train his kitchen staff.

Salad and pizza The first dish I ordered was an arugula salad. It remains my most memorable. A very generous amount of peppery arugula leaves were tossed with candied whole hazelnuts, pickled red onions and slices of red apples, then finished with a light and creamy fennel-Parmesan dressing. Even after finishing, I craved more. My pizza was a “Spanish red pie,” made with #5 Red Sauce from Bend’s own Barcelona Finishing Sauces. A rich, tomato-based sauce with a flavor that is at once nutty and smoky, it added zest to a thincrust pizza topped with ground chorizo sausage, roasted red peppers,

red onions and cotija cheese. Here’s a tip: Order your food, as I did, before 7 p.m., and you’ll get $2 off nearly every plate with happyhour prices. The reduced rates begin at 2 p.m., when the lunch hour has ended, and nothing is priced more than $7. But be warned that the bar staff won’t give you the break if the order goes into the register even one minute after 7 o’clock!

Dinner for two To begin a dinner for two, my companion and I ordered a crab-spinachartichoke dip. It was one of the better ones we’ve had in Central Oregon. Thick enough to break house-made tortilla chips, but not overly salty, it featured big chunks of crab and whole artichoke hearts, with Asiago cheese baked on top to a golden brown. My companion’s open-faced meatloaf sandwich was richer than it appeared at first glance. The menu had promised mushroom gravy, but the slice of meat, about an inch thick, was served floating in a pool of au jus with only a few ’shrooms as adornment. She enjoyed the flavor, but deep-fried onion rings and an additional serving of hand-cut fries — sprinkled with parsley, garlic and Parmesan — presented more calo-

ries than she had anticipated. On the other hand, I was very pleased with my pulled pork sandwich. This meal came with a substantial serving of tender pork on DiLusso sourdough bread, dressed with coleslaw and Barcelona’s #7 Green Sauce (poblano and serrano peppers, cilantro, onions and tomatillos). I think there must have been a touch of chipotle mayonnaise, as well, unless my taste buds deceived me. I didn’t even miss the cheddar cheese listed on the menu but forgotten by the kitchen. Service was invariably prompt and attentive: The servers were definitely “on top of it.” Orders were taken, and food delivered, in a very timely fashion, and when we returned on another occasion, we were greeted as if we were old friends. That’s good, because the new Astro Lounge could become an old friend. — Reporter: janderson@

works by Vima Lupwa residents. Asked about the success of this and past exhibits, board member Steve Douglas, who framed the works along with his wife and fellow board member, Elyse, said, “The shows help raise local awareness of the Vima Lupwa Home … and everything is small-scale fundraising, so every little bit matters.” The eventual goal of Vima Lupwa is to open other, similar homes, Pratt said, “but right now we’re just wanting to make this one work and be successful.” The artists include Shadrick, 11, who was so malnourished he looked about 3 when he arrived at the home a few years ago.

Often you’ll hear him talk the whole day until he crashes at night.

They’re very creative kids.” Added Douglas, “Even when it’s not formally about (therapy) it still helps. It’s cathartic. It allows them to process things that might be more difficult to process verbally. It gets out in the art.” There are good signs that art and life at Vima Lupwa Home are having a positive impact on the children who live there. Douglas and Pratt say some of the kids want to become social workers or otherwise give back to their country, which dovetails with Vima Lupwa Home’s goal: raising kids who want to honor their culture and improve life in Zambia. “Some of them want to be nurses and teachers. Shadrick wants to be the president,” Pratt said, laughing as she added, “One of them, Alick, wants to be a pirate.” When Alick first came to the home at age 8, he was an alcoholic, and didn’t talk to anyone for a year. “He had been a child prosti-

From previous page “I remember watching him try to walk and then fall,” Pratt said. “That was so long ago, now he plays soccer all the time. He’s really active.” The kids’ various ages and levels of artistic ability mean, as you might expect, that the works vary. There are more childlike renderings and intricate patterns of color and shape. The asking prices of the works start at $15 and go up to $35. In order to purchase a work, interested parties should speak to counter staff at Thump, which also has for sale coffee mugs depicting art by Vima Lupwa kids. Having a creative means of expression is “a big part of healing for kids,” Pratt said. “We’ve had children that came in that were child prostitutes or street children, or a sexual abuse history, or physical abuse. And then to be able to express themselves through art — I would say almost all of their art is (saying), ‘This is my home,’ and ‘I love my home.’

Michelle Aravena as Anita and German Santiago as Bernardo dance together in the national touring production of “West Side Story.” The Broadway musical runs Jan. 3-8 in Portland.

• Touring ‘West Side Story’ visits Portland’s Keller Auditorium By Jenny Wasson The Bulletin


ith a snap of a finger in its opening prologue, “West Side Story” changed the course of American musical theater more than 50 years ago. Inspired by Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” the musical about two rival street gangs in New York City is known for its innovative use of dance, music and subject matter. The Tony Award-winning musical is currently on tour and will make a stop Jan. 3-8 at the Keller Auditorium in Portland. Created by Arthur Laurents, “West Side Story” originally premiered at the Winter Garden Theatre on Sept. 26, 1957. The production featured choreography and direction by Jerome Robbins, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Unlike previous musicals, where people would burst into song and dance at the drop of a hat, “West Side Story” was propelled by the dance. According to press materials, “Robbins created a dance language unique to the show: much of the choreography is based more on street movement than on familiar dance steps, and there was a reason or emotion behind ev-

ery movement, every gesture.” The choreography and popular musical score — featuring “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America” and “I Feel Pretty” — gained further acclaim with the release of the musical’s motion picture version starring Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer and Rita Moreno. Winner of 10 Academy Awards, the film is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary. The current touring production is based on the musical’s 2009 Broadway revival, “a tougher, more real production of ‘West Side Story,’” according to a news release. Changes from the original production include a removal of some of its musical theater comedy elements and some dated dialogue. The Puerto Rican characters also sometimes sing and speak in Spanish for added authenticity. The new production was nominated for Best Musical Revival at the 2009 Tony Awards. Ticket prices range from $22 to $71 (plus service charges), depending on seat location and day of performance. To purchase tickets, visit or call 800-745-3000.

The Associated Press

Ethan Hunt, played by Tom Cruise, hangs precariously on the glass windows of a skyscraper in Dubai in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol.”

‘Ghost Protocol’ is intense • ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise gets a boost with this thrilling and action-packed story line


ission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” is a terrific thriller with action sequences that function as a kind of action poetry. The best one has Tom Cruise hanging more than 100 stories up on the glass windows of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building. He has been equipped with gloves that cling when you slam them against the surface and release when you kinda curl them back. Tricky enough in concept alone.

But it has been claimed that Cruise “insisted on doing his stunts himself.” Say what? The character Ethan Hunt is seen like a human fly clinging to glass thousands of feet in the air, and you’re telling me we aren’t looking at CGI? If that’s really Tom Cruise, he seems like a suitable case for treatment. If it is or isn’t, the sequence is one of the most spellbinding stretches of film I’ve seen. In the way it’s set up, photographed and edited, it provided me and my vertigo with


“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” 132 minutes PG-13, for sequences of intense action and violence

scary fascination. The movie has other accomplished set pieces as well. It opens with Hunt’s break-

out from a Russian prison. There is a staggering fight scene inside a space age parking garage where moving steel platforms raise and lower cars, and the fighters jump from one level to another. There’s a clever scene in the vaults of the Kremlin archives in which a virtual reality illusion is used to fool a guard. And a scene at a fancy Mumbai party in which Indian star Anil Kapoor thinks he’s seducing the team member Jane (Paula Patton) in an elaborately choreographed diversionary technique. Ethan and Jane are joined by Mission mates Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and Benji (Simon Pegg) in an attempt to foil a madman

named Hendricks (Michael Nyqvist), who has gained control of a satellite and possession of Russian nuclear codes, and wants to start a nuclear war. His reason, as much as I understand it, is that life on Earth needs to be annihilated once in a while so it can get a fresh start, and Hendricks is impatient waiting for a big asteroid to come along in his lifetime. The movie benefits greatly from the well-defined performances of the Mission team. Cruise, hurting from the death of his wife (remember her in the third MI picture?), plays a likable man of, shall we say, infinite courage. Continued next page





‘War Horse’ is an uplifting, artistic movie T

he closing shots of Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” will stir emotions in every serious movie lover. The sky is painted with a deeply red-orange sunset. A lone rider is seen far away on the horizon. The rider approaches and dismounts. He embraces a woman and a man. They all embrace the horse’s head. Music swells. This footage, with the rich colors and dramatic framing on what is either a sound stage or intended to look like one, could come directly from a John Ford Western. It is Spielberg’s homage, I believe, to Ford and to a Hollywood tradition of broad, uplifting movies intended for all audiences. The performances and production values throughout honor that tradition. “War Horse” is bold, not afraid of sentiment, and lets out all the stops in magnificently staged action sequences. Its characters are clearly defined and strongly played by charismatic actors. Its message is a universal one, about the horror of war in which men and animals suffer and die, but for the animals there is no reason: They have cast their lot with men who have betrayed them. The movie, based on a bestselling novel and a long-running London and New York stage production, begins on a small family farm in the county of Devon. We meet young Albert Narracott (Jer-

emy Irvine), his usually drunken but not unkind father, Ted (Peter Mullan), and his hard-working, loving mother, Rosie (Emily Watson). Lyons (David Thewlis), the landowner, presses them for pastdue rent. There is a horse auction in the village. Ted’s eye falls on a handsome horse named Joey and he determines to outbid Lyons for it, even if it means spending all the rent money. Rose is distraught: He was meant to bring home a plow horse at a low price and has purchased a sleek thoroughbred. But Albert and Joey bond, and Albert trains the horse to accept a collar and plow their stony fields. Then World War I breaks out. Drunk as usual, Ted sells the horse to the Army. Albert vows he will see it again. Now begins a series of self-con-

tained chapters in Joey’s life, as the horse passes from British to German hands, has a respite on a French farm, and then finds itself helping to drag a cannon much too big for the team. All of this is embedded in front-line battle footage as realistic as we saw in the landing at Normandy in Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan.” All wars are hell. Surely few were worse for private soldiers trapped in the muddy, cold desolation of the trenches. Horses thrown into this satanic chaos were confused, terrified and sometimes driven mad. Joey meets a series of masters, most of them on both sides men who respected horses. Yet war is no place for sentiment, and as an officer explains with brutal realism, a horse is a weapon and must either be used or destroyed. Surely some of the best footage Spielberg

has ever directed involves Joey and other horses running wild outside the trenches, galloping in a panic through barbed wire lines and dragging wire and posts after them as their flesh is cruelly torn. There’s one of those scenes of temporary truce when soldiers from both sides meet in No Man’s Land to share wire-cutters and set the horse free. All of this is magnificent. But it reduces the center of the film to a series of set pieces. The narrative thread is supplied by Joey, who is such a helpless protagonist that watching his adventures becomes painful — especially, I suspect, for younger viewers. Spielberg ennobles Joey and provides an ending for the film that is joyous, uplifting and depends on a surely unbelievable set of coincidences. I suppose it

must be that way for us to even bear watching such a story. I am reminded of “Schindler’s List.” Six million Jews were exterminated in the Second World War, but in focusing on a few hundred who miraculously survived, Spielberg made his story bearable. Among the horses of World War I, it can only be said that Joey’s good luck was extraordinary. The film is made with superb artistry. Spielberg is the master of an awesome canvas. Most people will enjoy it, as I did. But not included in the picture is the level of sheer hopeless tragedy that is everywhere just out frame. It is the same with life, and if you consider the big picture, all of us, men and beasts, have extraordinary good luck.

From previous page Simon Pegg, with his owl face and petulance, is funny as Benji the computer genius — one of those guys who can walk into the Burj Khalifa with a laptop and instantly grab control of its elevators and security cameras. Paula Patton is an appealing Jane, combining sweet sexiness with vicious handto-hand fighting techniques. And Jeremy Renner’s Brandt, entering the plot late as an “analyst” for the IMF secretary (Tom Wilkinson), is revealed to have a great many ex-

tra-analytical skills. Brandt and Benji have a scene that reaches a new level of action goofiness even for a “Mission: Impossible” movie. Brandt’s mission, and Ethan makes it clear he has to accept it, is to wear steel mesh underwear and jump into a ventilating shaft with wicked spinning fan blades at the bottom. Benji will halt his fall with a little mobile magnet at the bottom, so Brandt can break into massive computers. Renner does an especially nice job of seeming very

scared when he does this. The movie has an unexpected director: Brad Bird, the maker of such great animated films as “The Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles” and “Ratatouille.” Well, why not? Animation specializes in action, and his films are known for strong characterization. You’d think he’d been doing thrillers for years. Now I want to get back to Tom Cruise, who we left clinging to the side of the Burj Khalifa, allegedly doing his own stunts. I’m not saying he didn’t. No doubt vari-

ous unseen nets and wires were also used, and at least some CGI. Whatever. I remember a story Clint Eastwood told me years ago, after he made “The Eiger Sanction” (1975). There’s a scene in the movie where Clint’s character dangles in midair at the end of a cable hanging from a mountain. He’s thousands of feet up. Clint did the scene himself. “I didn’t want to use a stunt man,” he said, “because I wanted to use a telephoto lens and zoom in slowly all the way to my face — so

you could see it was really me. I put on a little disguise and slipped into a sneak preview of the film to see how people liked it. When I was hanging up there in the air, the woman in front of me said to her friend, ‘Gee, I wonder how they did that?’ and her friend said, ‘Special effects.’” (I should add that I saw the film on an IMAX screen. Wow. The skyscraper scene had incredible impact.)

‘Dragon Tattoo’ won’t disappoint • Fascinating heroine and a classic mystery make for a great film


he success of the heroine Lisbeth Salander suggests a hunger in audiences for an action picture hero who is not a white 35ish male with black stubble on his chin. Such characters are often effective, but they sometimes seem on loan from other pictures. There are few characters anywhere like Salander, played here by Rooney Mara and by Noomi Rapace in the original 2009 Swedish picture. Thin, stark, haunted, with a look that crosses Goth with S&M, she is fearsomely intelligent and emotionally stranded. It has been a fascination of the lean, fierce Salander that draws me into the “Girl” movies. We know horrible things happened to her earlier in life that explain her anger and proud isolation. Her apartment in Stockholm is like an eagle’s eyrie. She has an isolated life online, distant relationships with a few other technology geeks, and a bleak loneliness. One of the undercurrents of these movies is the very gradual rapport that grows between Lisbeth and Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), the radical investigative journalist. This is never the kind of movie where they’re going to fall in love. That she even smiles is a breakthrough. The stories churn in my mind. I’ve read two of the Stieg Larsson novels, seen all three of the Swedish films, and now am back for my third tour through the first story. It’s an odd feeling to be seeing a movie that resembles its Swedish counterpart in so many ways, yet is subtly different under the direction of David Fincher and with a screenplay by Steven Zaillian. I don’t know if it’s better or worse. It has a different air about it. Fincher is certainly a more assured director than Niels Arden Oplev, who did the 2009 Swedish film. Yet his assurance isn’t always a plus. The earlier film had a certain earnest directness about it that seemed to raise the stakes. Emotions were closer to the surface. Rooney Mara and the earlier actress, Noomi Rapace, both create convincing Salanders, but Rapace

seems more uneasy in her skin, more threatened. And as the male lead, Mikael Blomkvist, the earlier actor (Michael Nyqvist) seemed less confident, more threatened. In this film, Craig brings along the confidence of James Bond. How could he not? He looks too comfortable in danger. The labyrinth of the story re-

mains murky. The elderly millionaire Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer), cut off from the mainland on the family island, yearns to know how his beloved niece Harriet died 40 years ago. Because apparently neither she nor her body left the island on the day she disappeared, and no trace has ever been found. Suspicion rests on those who were there that day, in particular, other Vanger relatives whose houses overlook Henrik’s from their own isolation. They provide a snaky group of suspects. Many seem involved in corruption. Some have pasts with Nazi connections. Mikael arranges their photos and newspaper clippings and file cards in a collage pinned to a wall and connected with red lines of speculation, but his threads of suspicion seem to lead to … everyone. In this film more than the other one, the stories of Mikael and Lis-

beth are kept separate for an extended period. We learn about the girl’s state-appointed guardian (Yorick van Wageningen), who abused her, stole from her and embedded terror. Her attempts to avenge herself would make a movie of their own. Zaillian’s screenplay comes down to a series of fraught scenes between his leads and a distinctive gallery of supporting characters, given weight by such as Stellan Skarsgard, Robin Wright and the iconic London actor Steven Berkoff. These people inhabit a world with no boring people. By providing Mikael with his own small cottage on the island, Henrik Vanger isolates him in a vulnerable situation, which sinks in as he realizes he’s probably sharing the island with a murderer. There’s also the problem of why Henrik continues to receive watercolors of wildflowers on

his birthday, a tradition his niece began but that inexplicably has continued after her death. If you subtract computers, geeks, Goth girls, nose piercing, motorcycles and dragon tattoos, what we have at the bottom here is a classic Agatha Christie plot. The island works as a sealed room. I realize most people will be seeing the story for the first time in this version. Because it worked for me, I suspect it will work better for them because everything will be new. I’m happy to have seen both. If I had a choice of seeing one or the other for the first time, I’d choose the 2009 version. It seems closer to the bone, with a less-confident surface. Even the spoken Swedish adds to the effect; in English, the characters are concealing secrets but not so uncannily concealing themselves. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

T intin (voiced by Jamie Bell) is a newspaperman in search of a lost treasure in “The Adventures of Tintin.”

‘Tintin’ is a beautiful caper I

n gearing up to make “The Adventures of Tintin,” I suspect Steven Spielberg reached down into that place inside that fueled “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Here again is an intrepid hero involved in a nonstop series of exploits involving exotic locations, grandiose villains, planes, trains, automobiles, motorcycles, helicopters and ships at sea. It evokes Saturday afternoon serials in an age when most of the audience will never have seen one. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed myself. Spielberg not only uses 3-D but bases his story on one of Europe’s most beloved comic characters. The 3-D, he pulls off, just as Scorsese did in “Hugo,” because he employs it as an enhancement to 2-D instead of an attention-grabbing gimmick. The beloved character … can we flash back? It is a morning in May at the Cannes Film Festival, and I am drinking my coffee in the sunlight and reading Nice-Matin, the regional paper. A back page in full


“The Adventures of Tintin” 107 minutes PG, for adventure action violence, some drunkenness and brief smoking

color is given over to comics, and half the page is devoted to Tintin. I ask a French friend about him. “You don’t know Tintin?” She is amazed. “Zut!” So loved is he, I learn, that papers rerun his old exploits even after the death of his creator, Hergé. This Tintin (voiced by Jamie Bell in the film) is a piece of work. He is a newspaperman who rarely seems to go to the office but can usually be found globe-trotting on an unimaginable expense account, always accompanied by

his gifted dog, Snowy. Two maladroit Interpol inspectors named Thompson and Thomson (Nick Frost and Simon Pegg) are often on the same cases. A rum-soaked old sea salt named Capt. Haddock (Andy Serkis) is often found nearby. Tintin looks like a prepubescent to me, but is treated by everyone as sort of an honorary grown-up. His yellow hair comes up to a quiff in the front. Tintin’s adventures come in book length, their pages the size of old Life magazines. They are drawn by the Belgian artist Herge with elegant clarity (the “clean line” approach). Sometimes a situation will require an entire page. Starting that year at Cannes I read every single Tintin book, and even bought a Tintin and Snowy T-shirt. My little French-English Dictionary was a great help. It was reported that Spielberg would use motion-capture technology on his characters. This seemed wrong, wrong, wrong. Not only did Tintin inhabit an adamantly 2D universe, but he was manifestly

not real. Anyone could draw him; his face has two dots for eyes, little curves for eyebrows and a mouth, and a nose that is like a sideways “U.” To make him seem more real would be to lose Tintin. My worries became irrelevant during the movie’s opening scene. It was going to be all right. Tintin looked human, if extremely streamlined. His face, as described by an eyewitness to a police artist, would produce a sketch of … Tintin. The other characters are permitted more detail; Thomson and Thompson in particular are given noses that would make W.C. Fields weep with envy. Spielberg and a team of artists and animators have copied not the literal look of the Tintin strips, but the feel. A more traditional 2-D approach was done for a TV series, which you can check out on YouTube; I like it, but Spielberg is more ambitious and his characters seem more believable, to the extent that anyone created by Hergé is real. The movie involves the same headlong hurtle through

perilous adventures, with dire endangerment by explosives and so on. The chase is on to find a lost treasure with ancient connections to Capt. Haddock’s family. One of the benefits of animation is what it allows Spielberg to do with Snowy. The little dog has always been dubious about his master’s daring schemes; Tintin will propose an expedition and Snowy will think in a thought balloon, “Not by foot, I hope!” Some of the funniest moments in the movie involve Snowy’s determination to convey urgent information to dunderheaded humans. “The Adventures of Tintin” is an ambitious and lively caper, miles smarter than your average 3-D family film (how can any thinking person want to see one Chipmunks movie, let alone two or now even three?). Spielberg’s film plays fair with the plucky young reporter; the director received Hergé’s blessing before his death in 1983. I give it 875 portholes. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.




‘Marilyn’ is truly This isn’t very a showstopper ambitious, but

it’s entertaining


y some tantalizing alchemy Marilyn Monroe imprinted an idea in the minds of a large percentage of the human race in around 1950, and for many that idea is still there. In the early 1950s, my friends and I required only one word to express it: “marilynmonroe.” It wasn’t a name. It was a summation of all we yearned and guessed about some kind of womanly ideal. Sex didn’t seem to have much to do with it. It was more a form of devotion, a recognition of how she embodied vulnerability and sweetness and hope and fear. The success of “My Week With Marilyn” centers on the success of Michelle Williams in embodying the role. With the blond hair, the red lipstick and the camera angles, she looks something like Monroe, although she’s more petite. What she has is the quality that was most appealing: She makes you want to hug her, not have sex with her. Monroe wasn’t bold in her sexuality, not like her contemporaries Jane Russell or Brigitte Bardot. She held it tremulously in her grasp, as if not knowing how to set it down without damaging it. “My Week With Marilyn” is based on the true story of a young man named Colin Clark, who talked his way into a job on “The Prince and the Showgirl,” a movie being directed in England by Sir Laurence Olivier, the nearest thing to royalty among British actors. For one troubled week, while her husband, the playwright Arthur Miller, was absent in Paris and production was on hiatus, she asked the worshipful 23-year-old kid to join her at a getaway cottage. She was 30. They were alone. One night they went skinny-dipping in the moonlight. That’s about it. There’s a suggestion they had sex, but the movie is coy. The way I read it, it was about a gift. Aware of what “MarilynMonroe” meant to someone like Colin Clark, grateful for his sympathy and protectiveness, in need of company, she gave herself. Apparently she had a way of sometimes taking mercy like that. For serious relationships, she preferred alpha males: Joe DiMag-

gio, Arthur Miller, by some accounts Robert Mitchum and John and Bobby Kennedy. She admired their brains. She was smart but had no confidence. She was in search of mentors and father figures. In her acting she fell into the orbit of Lee Strasberg’s Method, and his second wife, Paula. She brought Paula to England with her and seemed incapable of making a move without her. Gifted with this week, Colin Clark recorded it in a diary, which later became a book. Diaries ran in the family. His older brother Alan Clark wrote one of the greatest of 20th-century political diaries. This film is a fragile construction. There is no plot to speak of. The character of Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) is surrounded by many others who have more presence and charisma: Lord Olivier, played by Kenneth Branagh with

barely concealed fury that his own crush on Monroe was impossible; Arthur Miller (Dougray Scott) with his deep American accent, disengaged from her world; Paula Strasberg (Zoe Wanamaker), fixated on Monroe, deaf and blind to others. Julia Ormond plays Vivien Leigh, Olivier’s wife, who sees through him, weighs the threat from Monroe and sees he isn’t the equal of a Miller or DiMaggio. Judi Dench is Dame Sybil Thorndike, also acting royalty, who patiently explains to Olivier that it doesn’t matter if Monroe can’t act because when she’s onscreen nothing else matters. Eddie Redmayne is well-cast as Colin Clark. The movie seems to be a fairly accurate re-creation of the making of a film at Pinewood Studios at the time. It hardly matters. What happens during the famous week hardly matters. What matters is the performance by Michelle Williams. She evokes so many Marilyns, public and private, real and make-believe. We didn’t know Monroe, but we believe she must have been something like this. We’re probably looking at one of this year’s Oscar nominees. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

here really is a Benjamin Mee, and he and his family really did buy a zoo. The Dartmoor Zoological Park in Devon, England, was opened in 1968, closed in 2006 and then was purchased by the Mee family. In adapting these facts into the movie “We Bought a Zoo,” all Cameron Crowe has done is move it to Southern California, supply it with a staff of character actors, add two romances and a villain. The result is too much formula and not enough human interest. Not that the film is without charms as a choice for the holiday season. Matt Damon makes a sturdy and likable Benjamin Mee, and Scarlett Johansson, as the head of the zoo’s animal keepers, seems adamantly unaware that she’s in a script that requires her to sooner or later kiss the hero. We even see Patrick Fugit, immortal as the hero of Crowe’s “Almost Famous,” as a member of the zoo staff. He’s never seen without a monkey on his shoulder, although that’s his only point of interest. (“What do we do to make the Robin Jones character interesting?” “He always has a monkey on his shoulder”). At the outset, the movie’s Benjamin Mee (Damon) is still in mourning after the death of his wife. He’s raising their kids, Dylan (Colin Ford), in his mid-teens, and Rosie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones), who is 7. Dylan is nabbed for shoplifting and Benjamin, a journalist, decides it’s time to leave the big city and raise them in the country. He finds an ideal house, which the real estate agent only gradually explains comes with its own menagerie. The place was once a private zoo, shut down for reasons involving money and regulations, and Kelly Foster (Johansson) minds the animals with the help of Peter MacCready (Angus MacFadyen), a pipe-puffing Scotsman, and Kelly’s teenage cousin Lily (Elle Fanning), who seems not entirely unaware that she’s in a script that may require her to sooner or later kiss Dylan. Benjamin’s brother Duncan (Thomas Haden Church) is an ac-

countant who urgently advises Ben not to buy a zoo. That’s the function of a good accountant. How many times has my own accountant, John Foy, entreated me, “Roger, whatever you do, don’t buy a zoo!” Kelly is a great-looking woman (after all, she looks like Scarlett Johansson), but she’s all business, dedicated to the welfare of the animals. She can see that Benjamin has a lot to learn. One of their first differences involves Spar, an old Bengal tiger who is in deep depression (so would we all be, if we had to live alone for 16 years in an efficiency apartment). Should Spar be put down? Kelly and Ben have an emotional debate. The villain is Walter Ferris (John Michael Higgins), an anal retentive animal control officer who enforces strict standards involving the care and housing of the animals. “We Bought a Zoo” started me thinking about “The Descendants.” Both involve fathers faced with raising two kids (about the same ages) after the deaths of their wives. Both have big stars as their leads. Both involve making major life decisions. One has Hawaii as a supporting character, one has a zoo. “The Descendants” is getting some of the best reviews of the year. “We Bought a Zoo” not so much. Cameron Crowe has made wonderful films, but here the pieces go together too easily, the plot is too inevitable, and we feel little real energy between the players. It’s pitched at a lower level of ambition. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

WHAT’S NEW “The Adventures of Tintin” — Steven Spielberg’s lively 3-D adventure was inspired by the popularity of the comic book hero Tintin. He’s successful in bringing the artistry of Herge, Tintin’s creator, into a third dimension and evoking the charm of the original, although there’s more violence than you might expect. The tale involves a search for a lost treasure. Providing voice and motion-capture performances are Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Nick Frost, Simon Pegg and Toby Jones. This film is available locally in 3-D and IMAX. Rating: Three and a half stars. 107 minutes. (PG) “The Darkest Hour” — The film follows five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. With Emile Hirsch and Max Minghella. This film was not screened in advance for critics. “The Darkest Hour” opens Sunday at local theaters. This film is available locally in 3D. 89 minutes. (PG-13) — Synopsis from movie’s official website

“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” — David Fincher’s American remake of the popular 2009 thriller, based on the first of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy of bestsellers. Rooney Mara stars effectively as the troubled Lisbeth Salander, a Goth girl who teams with an investigative journalist (Daniel Craig) to solve a 40-year-old murder case. They find themselves deep in the secrets of a corrupt family. Rating: Three and a half stars. 158 minutes. (R) “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” — Tom Cruise stars as Ethan Hunt in a terrific entry in the long-running franchise, which centers on the MI team’s attempt to stop a snaky genius from starting a nuclear war. Astonishing action sequences, including one with Ethan climbing the side of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building. With Jeremy Renner as Brandt, an “analyst” with a gift for action, Simon Pegg as the goofy and petulant computer genius Benji, and Paula Patton as beautiful and competent team member Jane. Very capably directed by Brad Bird, who usually does animation (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”). This film is available locally in IMAX. Rating: Three and a half stars. 132 minutes. (PG-13) “My Week With Marilyn” — Based on the diaries of a young man named Colin Clark, who talked his way into a lowly job on a Marilyn Monroe movie. For one troubled week, while her husband, the playwright Arthur Miller, was absent in Paris, she asked the worshipful 23-yearold kid to join her at a hideaway cottage.

Shailene Woodley, left, George Clooney and Amara Miller star in “The Descendants.” She was 30. They were alone. One night they went skinny-dipping in the moonlight. That’s about it. It wasn’t about sex. It was about her gift of her wonderfulness to a kid who stirred her sympathy. Michelle Williams evokes all the Marilyns, public and private, real and make-believe. We’re probably looking at one of this year’s Oscar nominees. Rating: Three and a half stars. 101 minutes. (R) “War Horse” — Steven Spielberg’s epic follows the fortunes of a handsome horse named Joey as it begins life on a farm in Devon and then finds itself embroiled on both sides of World War I. Young Jeremy Irvine stars as the farm boy who is Joey’s first and last master, and there are strong performances by Peter Mullan and Emily Watson as his parents. Battle sequences of extraordinary effect, consequences that are deeply moving, but perhaps too sentimental, especially in an ending that depends on surely impossible coincidence. “War Horse” opens on Sunday at local theaters. Rating: Three and a half stars. 146 minutes. (PG-13) “We Bought a Zoo” — Matt Damon plays a newspaperman whose wife dies. He’s having trouble raising two kids and decides to move the family to a farm that includes a private zoo. Here the staff, led by Scarlett Johansson, teach him about animals and also something about life. But the animals aren’t used in a very exciting way, and the plot is mechanical. A disappointment from director Cameron Crowe (“Almost Famous”). Rating: Two and a half stars. 124 minutes. (PG)

STILL SHOWING “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

“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 computeranimated farce. The movie’s energy flags at about the one-hour mark, but we kind of need that break to catch our breath.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reprise their starring roles in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1.”

From previou s 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. 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 Oscarwinning 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 two many penguins standing around looking too interchangeable for characters in a 3-D animated movie. Rating: Two and a half stars. 99 minutes. (PG) “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. The use of 3-D is controlled and effective. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Four stars. 130 minutes. (PG) “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 buttoneddown 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. Adam Sandler plays Jack Sadelstein, an L.A. ad exec dreading the annual holiday visit of his twin sister Jill (also Sandler), and 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

“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)

(R) “Midnight in Paris” — Woody Allen’s enchanting new comedy stars Owen Wilson as an American who visits Paris with his fiancee (Rachel McAdams), and finds himself seduced by dreams of living there in the 1920s when Hemingway and Fitzgerald hung out at Gertrude Stein’s fabled salon. With charm and whimsy, Allen tickles the fantasies of everyone who ever loved an American lit

class. With Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, French first lady Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard and Michael Sheen. DVD Extras: “Midnight in Cannes” featurette; Blu-ray Extras: Additional cast and crew photo gallery. Rating: Three and a half stars. 94 minutes. (PG-13) “Straw Dogs” — A reasonably close retelling of the 1971 film by Sam Peckinpah. Change the location from England to Mississippi, change a mathematician into a screenwriter, keep the bear trap and the cat found strangled, and it is every bit as violent. Visceral, disturbing and

recovering alcoholic. This is a rare fight movie in which we don’t want to see either fighter lose. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Three featurettes, gag reels, deleted scenes and audio commentary. Rating: Three stars. 139 minutes. (PG-13) ALSO OUT THIS WEEK: “Columbiana” COMING UP: Movies scheduled for national release Dec. 27 include “Final Destination 5” and “Apollo 18.” Check with local video stores for availability. — Roger Ebert, The Chicago SunTimes (“DVD and Blu-ray Extras” from wire and online sources)

“Dolphin Tale” — A sweet, feelgood film about a boy who helps save a dolphin, and how the dolphin helps save him. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble) discovers a beached dolphin with its tail entangled in the ropes of a lobster trap. A shy, closedoff boy, he is drawn out of his shell through attempts to save the dolphin and provide it with a prosthetic tail after its own tail must be amputated. Incredibly, this is inspired by real events, and the dolphin involved, named Winter, plays herself. Uplifting family entertainment. DVD Extras: A featurette, deleted scenes and a gag reel: Blu-ray Extras: Four additional featurettes. Rating: Three stars. 112 minutes. (PG) “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,

very well made. James Marsden moves with his wife Kate Bosworth to her hometown, and Alexander Skarsgard and James Woods are the scariest of the hostile locals. Rod Lurie’s version is better than the Peckinpah, I think. Or have I grown hardened by extreme mayhem? DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Four featurettes and audio commentary. Rating: Three stars. 110 minutes. (R) “Warrior” — An unusually dramatic fight picture, in which two long-estranged brothers meet in a mixed martial arts title fight. Joel Edgerton is a high school teacher, Tom Hardy is a returning Marine, and Nick Nolte is their father, a

The following movies were released the week of Dec. 20.



PAGE 30 • GO! MAGAZINE From Page 28 “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? 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

“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) “The Sitter” — A genial layabout gets talked 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, party-crashing 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) “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

Mumble (voiced by Elijah Wood), left, and Erik (voiced by Ava Acres) star in “Happy Feet Two.” (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 slowpaced, 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) “Young Adult” — In high school, Mavis (Charlize Theron) was the ruling queen bitch. 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)
