“Really, nothing’s off the table as far as we’re concerned. We have a striping truck, and they have a striping truck. Is there a way we can get rid of a striping truck?” — Chris Doty, Deschutes County Road Department director, about the possibility of consolidating some services with Bend

SALEM — Not too long ago, they were pitted against each other in the race for state treasurer. But now, Sen. Chris Telfer, R-Bend, and Treasurer Ted Wheeler have let political bygones be just that. IN “I like Ted, SALEM I really do,” Telfer said. And Wheeler’s assessment follows a similar vein. “She’s smart. She’s a Telfer bright person. We had indepth debates (during the campaign) that I believe people apWheeler preciated,” Wheeler said. “I like to think she learned from me and I learned from her.” The two have since joined forces on several issues, including the socalled Oregon Investment Act. The idea is to let a new board, the Oregon Growth Board, coordinate the state’s economic development efforts. The board would combine and coordinate existing state economic development programs. Its aim would be to help businesses raise capital by using state money to help them leverage private funds. The goal, of course, being to create jobs. “Some aspects of this Oregon Investment Act, we campaigned on together,” Telfer said. “How do you take state money and help businesses?” The act follows along the lines of several themes in this abbreviated February session: job creation, consolidation and streamlining the state’s stretched resources. “There are so many pots of money for business development, it’s unwieldy,” Telfer said. The bill, House Bill 4040, remains in a committee. It has bipartisan support, with Telfer as one of the chief co-sponsors. The former campaign foes also joined forces on one of Telfer’s priorities this session. See Rivals / A6

Deschutes County Road Department maintenance employees Clarence Lamping, left, and Scott Jacob, back right, work on a Caterpillar earth scraper Thursday at the road department service area near Knott Landfill in Bend.

The recent clash between two local tourism agencies over competing triathlons has revived a long-running discussion about the possibility of merging them and, perhaps, consolidating other government services as well. Following the conflict involving the Leadman and Ironman triathlons, said Bend City Councilor Tom Greene, “quite a few”

people contacted him to suggest that Visit Bend and the Central Oregon Visitors Association be combined. “They’re curious why we have two entities because to them, it seems like the same thing,” Greene said. The two tourism bureaus are private nonprofits, but they are funded largely by tourism taxes. Bend and Deschutes County are mandated to dedicate roughly a third of such tax revenue on tour-

ism promotion, but the city councilors and county commissioners decide how, exactly, to spend the money. Visit Bend receives tourism taxes collected by the city of Bend and promotes tourism in the city, while Central Oregon Visitors Association receives lodging taxes from unincorporated areas such as Sunriver and markets the region to visitors.

The director of the Redmond Proficiency Academy was arrested and jailed Saturday evening on multiple allegations of sexual contact with a student and official misconduct. In a news release issued late Saturday, Redmond Police said they began investigating Michael Bremont, 39, on Friday after learning of the allegations against him from officials at the school. Bremont has been the director of the academy since it opened in 2009. He had previously been an assistant principal at Redmond High School, and before coming Bremont to Redmond, principal of Central Linn High School near Eugene. Bremont has had a teaching credential in Oregon since 1996, and has no record of complaints or sanctions, according to the website of the state Teacher Standards and Practices Commission. Greg Scott, assistant director of the Redmond Proficiency Academy, said he would not provide any comment on the situation Saturday evening. Late Saturday, the school’s board of directors issued a news release through the Redmond Police Department stating that the school will be open as scheduled on Tuesday, with counselors available for students or staff. Monday is Presidents Day, a school holiday. “I am confident in the ability of our staff to help our students and families though this troubling time,” board President Patrick MacKelvie said in the release. “We remain committed to ensuring the growth and well-being of all our students. The safety of our students is paramount.” Contacted late Saturday, Redmond School District Superintendent Shay Mikalson said the district is cooperating fully with the investigation and aware of the situation. The Redmond School District has general oversight over charters in its district. Bremont could not be reached for comment. By 8 p.m. Saturday, Bremont’s biography had been removed from the RPA website. The profile of his wife, health teacher Tamara Bremont, remains. Michael Bremont has been placed on paid administrative leave. See RPA / A4

With space a mess, NASA seeks broom

A string of kindness: 30 kidneys, 60 lives

By Kevin Sack New York Times News Service

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Rick Ruzzamenti admits to being a tad impulsive. He traded his Catholicism for Buddhism in a revelatory flash. He married a Vietnamese woman he had only just met. And then a year ago, he decided in an instant to donate his left kidney to a stranger.

In February 2011, the desk clerk at Ruzzamenti’s yoga studio told him she had recently donated a kidney to an ailing friend. Ruzzamenti, 44, had never even donated blood, but the story so captivated him that two days later he placed a call to Riverside Community Hospital to ask how he might do the same thing.

New gene research shows we’re all a little bit broken


By David Brown The Washington Post

We’ve all had cars with a bunch of broken parts that get us where we want to go for years with no obvious problem. Does the human genome have the same tolerance for permanent damage? The answer is: Yes, we still can run. A new study estimates that the average person goes through life with 20 genes permanently out of commission. With each of us possessing about 20,000 genes, that means 0.01 percent of our endowment is broken from the start — and we don’t even know it. Whether being born with 20 broken genes is horrifying (“Get me customer service!”) or reassuring (“Whew, only 20!”) depends on one’s expectation of perfection. “It does suggest that human beings have a bigger tolerance for mutation than we thought,” said Daniel MacArthur of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in England, who led the study published Thursday in the journal Science. “That we can actually have 20 genes knocked out and still be walking around without suffering any ill effects — that was surprising.” Mark Gerstein of Yale University, one of the 50 scientists around the world who assisted him, agreed: “This is a testament to how robust people are.” Which genes are inactivated differs from person to person. Across the entire species, however, at least 250 of them — and probably a lot more — are expendable. As one might expect, genes that can go missing without being missed aren’t involved in essential functions. They control things that are nice to have (like a certain smell receptor) but aren’t required for survival (like an enzyme in a basic metabolic pathway). The point of the research, however, goes far beyond a Rorschach test of self-image. It’s the latest deep-dive into the human genome, our species’ 3billion-letter instruction manual for self. As biologists come to understand better how genes interact with one another in complex networks, they may be able to discover how much of what makes each of us unique is a product of what we lack, and not just what we have. What the researchers did in the new study is carefully read a book — an individual’s genome — in which some of the sentences — a single gene — have suffered a typographical catastrophe. Words have been changed, their order changed, or whole phrases have been dropped. Whatever the cause, the result is a sentence that no longer makes sense. In genetic terms, these are “loss-of-function variants.” Most of the time this isn’t a problem. That’s because (with a few exceptions) we get two copies of every gene — one from the mother and the other from the father. If one copy is broken, the other takes over. In the new study, MacArthur and his many collaborators sequenced the genes of 185 people from four regions and ethnicities — Chinese, Japanese, Nigerian and Western European. They repeated and checked their work, filtering out variants that were simply laboratory errors. They ended up with a list of 1,285 loss-offunction variants. The number of genes involved was slightly fewer — 1,035 — because a few of the genes had more than one loss-of-function variant. On further study, the researchers found that there were 253 genes in which both copies were inactivated in at least 1 of the 185 people without obvious effect. And they found that each person in the sample carried about 20 such inactivated genes.

Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota usually sports a sheet of ice thick enough to support vehicles, but this winter most vehicles have been banned. Snowmobiles and ATVs are still allowed.

Amid a warm winter, ice fishermen all blue By Monica Davey New York Times News Service

NAVARRE, Minn. — In winter, little shacks appear seemingly out of nowhere here along frozen Lake Minnetonka, shelters for a diehard group that does not let the small matter of season get in the way of fishing. These fish houses, which have grown ever more elaborate with features like televisions and ovens, are hauled onto the ice every year. But this year there are fewer of them. If the nation’s unusually warm winter has left most people pleasantly puzzled, it has meant a gloomy slowdown in the world of ice fishing, a beloved, long-held tradition in states like this. In Michigan and Montana, ice-fishing classes have been called off over worries of unstable ice. Ice-fishing contests

have been canceled in Iowa and Maine. Worse, in parts of Wisconsin and Minnesota, the authorities have reported cars and people falling through the tenuous ice. After six vehicles slipped under the ice here in a matter of seven days this winter, the Hennepin County sheriff banned cars, trucks and SUVs from driving on any county lake, including Lake Minnetonka, until further notice. Snowmobiles, ATVs — and people on foot — are still allowed. No one died in those episodes. But the sheriff, Rich Stanek, said the risks — in-

cluding those to his deputies, who were spending much of their time speeding across the lake in airboats to rescue people — were too high, leaving some fishermen grumbling that they had no way to get to the fish houses they had set up far from shore. “We’re losing cars literally left and right,” Stanek said. “I’m not here to cancel winter in Minnesota. That’s happening all by itself.” In the contiguous United States, temperatures were warmer than usual — 3.8 degrees above the average — in December and January.


In Florida, 3 generations, 1 meth case The Associated Press CROSS CITY, Fla. — It’s a generational thing: Deputies in Florida say a man, his daughter and his grandson, along with a fourth person said to be a relative, are accused of working together to manufacture methamphetamine.

ports the suspects were arrested after deputies served a search warrant at their Cross City home. Sheriff’s Maj. Scott Harden says it’s hard to imagine someone “cooking up meth” with their daughter or grandson, let alone both.

T S 1 year into revolution, abuses beset Libya By Hannah Allam McClatchy Newspapers

CAIRO — Thousands of euphoric Libyans filled Tripoli’s main square in September to hear Mustafa Abdul-Jalil’s first speech since rebel forces chased Moammar Gadhafi from the Libyan capital. Then the most visible opposition leader — and now Libya’s de facto president — Abdul-Jalil seemed to embody the country’s promise of democratic change. A former justice minister, he had defected early to the rebel cause and came with a reputation

for dissent and honesty despite his role in the Gadhafi regime. If anyone could corral the competing factions in the aftermath of Gadhafi’s ouster, surely he could, Libyans said at the time. “We need unity, rejecting fear and envy with no retaliation or injustice,” Abdul-Jalil proclaimed to cheers so thunderous they drowned out parts of his speech. Six months later, however, fear, retaliation and injustice are hallmarks of the new Libya. Vigilante justice reigns, human rights abuses are ram-

pant and loose weapons float around the country — and across the border into Egypt — with little hindrance, according to human rights groups and analysts who’ve monitored the country’s transition. It’s been a year since Libya joined the Arab Spring uprisings, six months since the regime collapsed and four months since Gadhafi’s execution by rebel captors. The reviews of Abdul-Jalil’s fragile state are downbeat. Rival militias, powerful tribes, well-organized Islamists and semi-autonomous

cities such as Misrata openly defy his weak administration. Ordinary Libyans are fed up with the car thefts and the carousing of the militiamen they once hailed as heroic warriors, and they blame Abdul-Jalil for not standing up to the paramilitary commanders. The interim government has failed to intervene in the forced displacement of some 30,000 people from Tawergha, a community of black Libyans adjacent to Misrata whom Misratans accuse of siding with Gadhafi during the fighting.

Newly appointed Cardinal Edwin Frederick O’Brien, of the United States, is elevated Saturday by Pope Benedict XVI in St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican. The pope on Saturday brought 22 Catholic churchmen into the elite club of cardinals who will elect his successor. O’Brien was one of two Americans elevated. The other, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, emerged as something of the star of the consistory, delivering a highly praised speech on spreading the faith and mentioned in some Italian media as an improbable “papabile,” or having the qualities of a future pope. — The Associated Press

Whitney Houston’s voice soars at hometown funeral By Nekesa Mumbi Moody The Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. — After all the testimonials from relatives and friends, the songs from legends and pop stars, the preaching and even laughter, the raw emotion of Whitney Houston’s funeral came down to just one moment: The sound of her voice. As the strains of her biggest record, “I Will Always Love You,” filled the New Hope Baptist Church at the end of the nearly four-hour service Sat-

urday and her silver-and-gold casket was lifted in the air, the weight of the moment was too much for her mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, to bear. As she was held up by two women, she wailed, “My baby! My baby!” as she was led out of the church behind her daughter’s body. A few steps behind her was the pop icon’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, also crying uncontrollably as she was comforted by Houston’s close friend,

singer Ray J. It was the most searing scene on a day with mixed moods as family, friends and A-list celebrities — sometimes one and the same — came to the humble New Hope Baptist Church where she first wowed a congregation to remember one of music’s legends, but also a New Jersey hometown girl. Houston died last Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif., on the eve of the Grammys at the age of 48.

400 Iran Mexico’s presidential hopefuls avoiding drug war exiles By Nick Miroff The Washington Post

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s drug war has cost 50,000 lives since President Felipe Calderón took office in December 2006, and when voters go to the polls to elect a new leader July 1, that dreadful figure may cost his party the presidency. Ever-expanding violence and insecurity have left many Mexicans desperate for a leader who can stem the killings and pacify the gangsters. But public frustration has not translated into a substantive policy debate about how to change course, and political analysts say whoever succeeds Calderón will probably continue fighting the cartels in similar fashion — by working closely with the United States and relying heavily on the Mexican military.

“The majority of Mexicans want a change in strategy, but it’s more of a gut feeling that they want something different than a clear sense of what to do,” said independent pollster Jorge Buendia. In surveys, security and job creation are consistently the two most important issues cited by respondents, Buendia said, but so far the presidential candidates have generally avoided the issues. “Reporters don’t ask, and they never move beyond generalities,” he said. When pressed for specifics, the candidates tend to offer airy platitudes instead. Even the candidate projected to benefit most from Calderón’s struggles — Enrique Pena Nieto, nominee of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) — has avoided staking out firm positions on security issues.

move to new home

The Associated Press BAGHDAD — Lugging clothes, tables and whatever else they were allowed to bring, roughly 400 members of an Iranian exile group reluctantly moved Saturday from their camp in northwestern Iraq to a deserted military base outside the capital in what they called a show of good faith that they eventually will be allowed to leave the country peacefully. It was the first group to move of the more than 3,300 members of the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran who have lived at Camp Ashraf for three decades.



Protesters fill streets of Damascus By Neil MacFarquhar New York Times News Service

BEIRUT — Hundreds of anti-government protesters braved scattered gunfire from Syrian soldiers and a cold winter snowstorm to march through a middleclass neighborhood in Damascus on Saturday, the biggest such march witnessed close to the heart of the capital since the country’s uprising began 11 months ago. The neighborhood, Mezze, skirts the hill on which the sprawling white presidential palace sits, and more than a few demonstrators expressed the wish that President Bashar Assad could hear them. “I hope President Assad opens the window of his office and sees how Damascenes are shouting against him and his regime,” said Usama, 22, a university student from the neighborhood, giving only his first name out of fear of retribution. “The regime thought we were asleep, but it doesn’t know that when we wake up his regime will be gone.” The relative calm of Damascus, as well as Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, throughout the uprising has been cited repeatedly by the Assad government to buttress its argument that it enjoys wide support in Syria. Officials maintain that the demonstrations and unrest in rebellious cities like Homs, Hama and Daraa, all sites of brutal crackdowns, are the work of foreign infiltrators.

Syrian ties to Russia run deep Seemingly undeterred by an international outcry, Russia has worked frantically in recent weeks to preserve its relationship with the increasingly isolated government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, even as the Syrian leader turns his military forces on his own citizens and the death toll there mounts. While Moscow has a number of reasons to guard its relations with Damascus, the most concrete, many analysts say, is its long-standing arms sales to Syria. The chief spokesman for Rosoboronexport, the state-owned weapons trading company, said last week that absent any new directive from the Kremlin, business with the Assad government would continue as before. “We understand the situation has become aggravated in Syria,” the spokesman, Vyacheslav Davidenko, said. “But since there are no international decisions, and there are no sanctions from the U.N. Security Council, and there are no other decisions, our cooperation with Syria — the military-technical cooperation — remains quite active and dynamic.” — New York Times News Service




Republicans criticize Obama’s cuts After brief to nukes, though GOP has its share lull, a 13-state trial for GOP By Robert Burns

The Associated Press

By David Espo The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A resurgent Rick Santorum hopes to spring his next big surprise in Michigan. Newt Gingrich looks for a campaign revival in the Bible Belt. Mitt Romney has his home state of Massachusetts, and the luxury of picking his spots elsewhere, if not everywhere, as the race for the Republican presidential nomination roars back to life. After a brief midwinter lull, the Republican field faces a cross-country series of nine primaries and four caucuses between Feb. 28 and Super Tuesday on March 6. At stake are 518 delegates, more than three times the number awarded so far in the unpredictable competition to pick a GOP opponent for President Barack Obama. A debate on Feb. 22 in Arizona, the first in three weeks and possibly the last of the GOP campaign, adds to the uncertainty. The political considerations are daunting as Romney, Santorum, Gingrich and Ron Paul weigh the cost of competing in one state against the hope of winning in a second or perhaps merely running well but gaining delegates in a third. “Not all states are of equal importance,” said Steve Schmidt, who helped the GOP’s 2008 nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, navigate the campaign calendar as a senior adviser. It will take 1,144 delegates to win the GOP presidential nomination at the August convention in Tampa, Fla. According to numerous strategists inside and outside the campaigns, the Michigan primary on Feb. 28 shapes up as particularly important contest as Romney tries to fend off a charging Santorum one week before a 10-state night on Super Tuesday. Yet of the 13 states, Georgia has the biggest delegate haul at stake, 76, and Gingrich can ill afford to lose now where his political career was launched in 1978.

RPA Continued from A1 Redmond Police arrested Bremont on suspicion of one count of second-degree sexual abuse, two counts of third-degree sexual abuse, one count each of third-degree attempted rape, third-degree sodomy, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, sexual misconduct, private indecency, and three counts of first-degree official misconduct. Redmond Police Lt. Nathan Garibay said Saturday he could not provide further detail about the allegations. In a news release, Garibay stated that any further release of information would be by — or with the permission of — the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office. Bremont was booked into the Deschutes County Jail shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday. His bail was set at $30,500. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. State law defines seconddegree sexual abuse as nonconsensual sexual intercourse, while third-degree sexual abuse is defined as subjecting a person to sexual contact, either without consent of the person or with a person younger than 18. Attempted third-degree rape is attempted sexual intercourse with a person younger than 16. Third-degree sodomy is “deviate sexual intercourse” — contact between one person’s sex organs and the mouth or anus of another — with a person younger than 16. A review of Oregon court records indicates Bremont has no prior criminal history aside from six traffic citations, five for speeding, between July 1996 and last March. This is the second incident involving a high school principal in Redmond. Brian Lemos was fired as Redmond High principal last year for what the school

Santorum takes aim at public education COLUMBUS, Ohio — With his candidacy surging, Rick Santorum on Saturday criticized the public education system and questioned whether President Barack Obama’s agenda sprang from a “phony theology.” At one appearance here, he said the idea of schools run by the federal government or by state governments was “anachronistic.” Santorum did not say public schools were a bad idea, and he said that there was a role for government help in education. But it was the latest in a series of comments by the former Pennsylvania senator suggesting that he takes a dim view of public schooling. He and his wife homeschooled their children. For the first 150 years, most presidents homeschooled their children at the White House, he said. “Where did they come up that public education and bigger education bureaucracies was the rule in America? Parents educated their children, because it’s their responsibility to educate their children.” “Yes the government can help,” Santorum added. “But the idea that the federal government should be running schools, frankly much less that the state government should be running schools, is anachronistic. It goes back to the time of industrialization of America when people came off the farms where they did home-school or have the little neighborhood school, and into these big factories, so we built equal factories called public schools. And while those factories as we all know in Ohio and Pennsylvania have fundamentally changed, the factory school has not.” — New York Times News Service

RPA is a charter high school with 470 students this school year, according to the Oregon State Department of Education enrollment data. Operated under the sponsorship of Redmond School District, it accepts students from within the district and surrounding school districts. The district provides oversight in areas like finances, but the charter school is self-governed with a separate board, and its employees aren’t school district staff. The school’s approach to classes is nontraditional. It offers courses similar to college courses to prepare students for higher education. Instead of an instructional day split into hourly class periods, classes meet for fewer, but longer, periods of instruction. For example, a class typically may meet twice a week for three hours, with students coming and leaving the school in an open campus setting based on their class schedules. In the school’s model, students work at their own pace, moving on to the next level in the class as they demonstrate proficiency. RPA has grown significantly since opening its doors in the 2009-2010 school year, when its enrollment was 145 students. — Reporters: 541-383-0387,; 541-977-7185

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration’s consideration of severe cuts in nuclear weapons generated a flurry of GOP criticism — “reckless lunacy” in the words of Arizona Rep. Trent Franks. But the historical record shows that in the two decades since the Cold War ended, Republicans have been the boldest cutters of the nuclear arsenal. “Republican presidents seem to have a thing for 50 percent nuclear reductions,” says Hans Kristensen, a nuclear

arms specialist with the Federation of American Scientists, a think tank founded by many of the scientists who built the first atomic bombs. For example, on President George H.W. Bush’s watch, the number of deployed weapons as well as those held in reserve was nearly cut in half, from 22,217 to 13,708 warheads, according to official U.S. government figures. The number of deployed strategic warheads dropped from 12,300 to 7,114 in that same period, by Kristensen’s calculations. As part of that move, taken

as fears of a nuclear Armageddon at the Cold War’s end were diminishing, the Republican president announced in September 1991 that he unilaterally was retiring all groundbased U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe and South Korea and removing all nuclear weapons from U.S. naval surface ships. Submarines remain armed with nuclear missiles as part of a “triad” of land-, air- and sea-based weapons that is the enduring core of the U.S. nuclear arsenal. President George W. Bush went further, cutting the total

stockpile by 50 percent, from 10,526 to 5,273 warheads. In his two terms, Democratic President Bill Clinton trimmed just a little more than 2,000 warheads from the stockpile. No commander in chief, however, ever cut the nuclear force to as low a number as Obama might under a set of options that his administration is considering now. One option is to cut the number of deployed long-range weapons to a range of 1,000 to 1,100; a second would drop it to between 700 and 800; a third is between 300 and 400.


Kidneys Continued from A1 Halfway across the country, in Joliet, Ill., Donald Terry Jr. needed a kidney in the worst way. Since receiving a diagnosis of diabetes-related renal disease in his mid-40s, he had endured the burning and bloating and dismal tedium of dialysis for nearly a year. “It was like being sentenced to prison,” Terry recalled, “like I had done something wrong in my life and this was the outcome.” As a dawn chill broke over Chicago on Dec. 20, Terry received a kidney in a transplant at Loyola University Medical Center. He did not get it from Ruzzamenti, at least not directly, but the two men will forever share a connection: They were the first and last patients in the longest chain of kidney transplants ever constructed, linking 30 people who were willing to give up an organ with 30 who might have died without one. What made the domino chain of 60 operations possible was the willingness of a good Samaritan, Ruzzamenti, to give the initial kidney, expecting nothing in return. Its momentum was then fueled by a mix of selflessness and selfinterest among donors who gave a kidney to a stranger after learning they could not donate to a loved one because of incompatible blood types or antibodies. Their loved ones, in turn, were offered compatible kidneys as part of the exchange.

Cynthia Goff, a courier, waits at the Los Angeles International Airport with the kidney donated by Sherry Gluchowski before boarding a flight to Chicago, where the kidney’s recipient awaits.

In 2007, a transplant surgeon at the University of Toledo Medical Center, Dr. Michael A. Rees, had a forehead-slapping insight. If an exchange began with a good Samaritan who donated to a stranger, and if the operations did not have to be simultaneous, a chain could theoretically keep growing, limited only by the pool of available donors and recipients. Rees reported in 2009 that he had strung together a chain of 10 transplants. Hil seized on the idea and set out to build an algorithm that would enable even more transplants. Nowadays, Hil’s pool typically consists of 200 to 350 donor-recipient pairs. That is enough to generate roughly a googol — 10 to the 100th power — of possible chains of up to 20 transplants if all of the pairs are compatible, said Rich Marta, the registry’s senior software designer. There are several registries like Hil’s, each with a distinct approach. Largely unregulated by government, they invite sensitive questions about oversight and ethics, including how kidneys are allocated. A number of medical societies are convening in March to seek consensus on that and other issues related to paired exchanges.

showed up at Riverside Community Hospital asking to give a kidney to anyone in need, he still underwent rounds of psychological screening as well as medical tests. The doctors and social workers did not know what to make of Ruzzamenti at first. He had a flat affect and an arid wit, and did not open up right away. As the hospital’s transplant coordinator, Shannon White, pressed him about his motivations and expectations, he explained that his decision seemed rather obvious. “People think it’s so odd that I’m donating a kidney,” Ruzzamenti told her. “I think it’s so odd that they think it’s so odd.” The hospital wanted to make sure that he was not expecting glory, or even gratitude. Ruzzamenti stressed that no one should mistake him for a saint. By Dec. 19, Chain 124 hurtled toward its conclusion with a final flurry of procedures at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Between dawn and dusk, three kidneys were removed and three were transplanted in neighboring operating rooms. One flew in from San Francisco. The last took off for O’Hare.

At the end of the cluster were Keith Zimmerman, 53, a bearish, good-humored man with a billy-goat’s beard, and his older sister, Sherry Gluchowski, 59. She had recently moved from California to Texas but returned to donate her kidney. Gluchowski’s kidney went to Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago to be transplanted into Terry, the last in the chain. Chain 124 ended at Loyola because Hil had arranged the final kidney to go to a hospital that had produced a good Samaritan donor to start a chain in the past, thus closing a loop. Dr. John Milner, a transplant surgeon at Loyola, said he then selected Terry to receive the kidney because he was the best immunological match on the hospital’s wait list. When Milner called with the news in early December, Terry was floored at his remarkable good fortune. As it sank in that his would be the last of 30 interconnected transplants, Terry began to feel guilty that he would be ending the chain. “Is it going to continue?” he asked Milner. “I don’t want to be the reason to stop anything.” “No, no, no,” the doctor reassured him. “This chain ends, but another one begins.”

Chain 124’s risks Long transplant chains save more lives than short chains. But they come with trade-offs because the longer they grow, the higher the risk that a donor will renege or that a link will break for other reasons. The dependency of each link on the others kept patients on edge. “Things can happen,” Candice Ryan fretted a few days before her Dec. 5 transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital. “You just pray that everything goes well. I can’t relax until I’m asleep and on the table.” Until recently, hospitals regularly turned away good Samaritan donors on the working assumption that they were unstable. That has changed somewhat with experience. But when Rick Ruzzamenti

Surge in U.S. temp workers seen as a fundamental change to employment By Ylan Q. Mui

Kathy Westra quit looking for a full-time position to become a freelance environmental communications consultant. “The competition was just so tight for every job that was out there,” Westra says. “After about a year, I realized, ‘Wait a minute — I’ve gotten through it and never fallen a day behind on my mortgage.’ ”

The Washington Post

The nation’s unemployment rate is falling faster than expected, but what counts as a job has become increasingly murky. More than a quarter of people who have found jobs since the recession ended have landed in temporary positions, according to government data, though private estimates range far higher. The numbers reflect a fundamental change in the way Americans work, with neither businesses nor their employees expecting to stay together for life. That is raising new questions about the sustainability of the drop in the unemployment rate as workers cycle through jobs more quickly. It also leaves them more vulnerable to cycles of boom and bust — temporary workers are usually the first hired and first fired — and forces them to shoulder the responsibility of paying for health care and retirement. “By definition, a good job was with a big company with big benefits where you could expect to work for your whole life,” said Carl Camden, chief executive of Kelly Services, one of the nation’s largest staffing firms. “The social benefits system relies on almost everybody working in a quote-unquote job. That’s not the case now.” Though the shift has been gradually occurring for at least a generation, economists and academics say the Great Recession has hastened its arrival. Companies uncertain of the strength of the recovery have been reluctant to hire permanent employees, instead hedging their bets with short-term help. Meanwhile,

consolidation possibilities to consider. The work included spraying herbicide on weeds, sweeping streets and buying vehicle parts. County officials asked for more time to address the proposition, as some of their top administrators — including the road department director — had recently departed, said Bend City Manager Eric King. “The message we got back from the county was, ‘Yeah, we want to talk about this, but we need to get personnel in the leadership positions,’ ” King said. But city and county officials


revenue and paid its president and CEO, Doug La Placa, a salary of $91,287. La Placa said Wednesday that Visit Bend is “looking forward to engaging in conversations about how our industry can be more effective and efficient.” Hughson was out of the country on Wednesday and could not be reached for comment. City and county officials, meanwhile, have resumed a discussion about other work they can share, mostly maintenance of streets and vehicle fleets. In 2009, the Bend Chamber organized a series of monthly meetings at which local officials discussed the possibility of saving money by consolidating services. The meetings, which lasted for about a year, involved Deschutes County, Bend, Bend-La Pine Schools and the Bend Park & Recreation District. The topic is important, said chamber Executive Director Tim Casey, because financially strapped governments can use the savings to pay for badly needed services such as infrastructure and transportation. “If we can reduce costs elsewhere, it will help reduce that impact on citizens,” Casey said. The discussion languished in recent months, but Bend and Deschutes County officials said they plan to resume it in the upcoming months. Deschutes County Road Department Director Chris Doty said the recession prompted people to look more seriously at consolidation. “As resources constrict or contract, it’s natural to reach out for help,” Doty said. “What’s different now than ever before is that we’re all beat down enough about it we’re going to be able to have a good conversation about it, rather than one that’s about turf.” At this point, it’s unclear whether consolidation would save money and how many, if any, government employees might lose their jobs. County and city officials will probably meet sometime in the next month to discuss the possibility of sharing vehicle fleet maintenance, said interim County Administrator Erik Kropp. Last summer, Bend sent the county a

workers are forging new careers as temps, contractors, consultants and freelancers in the face of a tight market for traditional jobs with 40hour weeks and 401(k)s. Consider the case of Kathy Westra, 57, of Silver Spring, Md., who was laid off in 2009 from her job as head of communications for the Wilderness Society. For the next year, she devoted most of her time to hunting for a job. On the side, she took on a few short-term consulting projects to make ends meet. But as more work came her way — and a “real job” never materialized — Westra stopped considering herself

three times her former hourly wage. Her first contract was from a company that had laid her off. She said her former employers think: “What about Vera? Can we get her to come back and do this?” According to a survey by Staffing Industry Analysts, a research firm, businesses plan to increase the amount of temporary labor they use by 26 percent over the next two years. Jon Osborne, the group’s vice president of research, said the model is about 8 percent cheaper than hiring permanent employees, because most temporary workers do not receive benefits. Camden said the cost of health care is the main deterrent for workers who would otherwise seek to join the contingent labor force. And it is a major reason that many workers hope temporary employment is just a pit stop on the way to something permanent. A recent survey by staffing firm Adecco found that nearly two-thirds of Americans have a positive view of temporary work. But job security still ranked as the most important quality in a job, beating out even salary, the survey found. The American Staffing Association, an industry group, said temporary workers are staying in their posts longer, averaging 13.8 weeks. Typically, about half of them end up in permanent jobs. Paul Osterman, a human resources and management professor at MIT, said that what happens when a temporary assignment ends is the ultimate indicator of whether this model of employment really works. “Is this a good thing or a bad thing?” he asked. “It depends on what comes next.”

Continued from A1 A member of Wheeler’s staff testified in support of Telfer’s bill that would change the way businesses can use revenue from industrial bonds. She believes the change in the state statute could attract a business to Oregon, bringing with it several hundred jobs. Wheeler said he’s appreciated Telfer’s support and been happy to throw his weight behind some of her causes as well. “I’m a Democrat, she’s a Republican, we probably have honest philosophical differences,” he said. “But we both prioritized jobs and economic development. We both agreed the state needs to do everything it can do to be financially responsible.” Telfer likes Wheeler’s sense of humor — and actually, she said, she’s thankful he won — this time. “I’m having more fun in the Senate for now,” she said. “I’m having a great session representing Central Oregon.”


Continued from A1 The conflict between the bureaus became public in January. Visit Bend staff said they’d already signed a contract to host the Leadman endurance triathlon, while the Central Oregon Visitors Association worked with other event organizers on a bid to bring an Ironman triathlon to the region at roughly the same time. Ironman backers ultimately dropped their bid, but the situation revealed a lack of coordination and communication between the agencies and city and county officials. Greene said he briefly discussed the idea of consolidating the two bureaus with Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney and would like to talk further. “I think we should have enough information to decide whether it’s a good idea to merge Visit Bend and (Central Oregon Visitors Association) in the next 90 days,” Greene said. “With the Leadman/Ironman, it’s kind of a hotter topic right now.” Baney did not return calls for comment. Bend Mayor Jeff Eager agreed with Greene that the Leadman-Ironman controversy prompted officials to ask whether the tourism bureaus should coordinate more or merge. “I think everyone would agree there needs to be better coordination, at the least, between (Central Oregon Visitors Association) and Visit Bend so we’re on the same page in going after regionalcaliber events,” Eager said. And as for a merger, said Eager, the potential benefits include cost savings. “Visit Bend has an office downtown and (Central Oregon Visitors Association) has an office in the Old Mill (District), and there may be some opportunities for savings there if there are redundancies in the facilities or personnel.” Central Oregon Visitors Association had $1.6 million in revenue in 2009, according to the latest available tax return for the nonprofit. That year, executive director Alana Hughson was paid a salary of $92,880. In the same year, Visit Bend received roughly $960,000 in

economic recovery, and their ranks have jumped 37 percent since the recession ended. But there is a much larger number of Americans working as “free agents” who jump from project to project and might be employed by several companies at the same time. Little academic research has been done on these workers — the government does not track them — but private groups say their numbers have swelled since the recession. A survey last year by Kelly Services found that 44 percent of workers considered themselves free agents, compared with 19 percent in 2006, before the recession hit. Camden, the Kelly chief executive, said many of them are retirees who have “been there, done that, got the corporate T-shirt” but who want or need to continue working. Young, mobile workers are also drawn to temporary work as a way to build their skills without feeling tied to a company or even a city. But the real drivers of the increase, Camden said, were the massive corporate layoffs that forced many Americans to find a new way to make money — whether they liked it or not. Vera Pell, 58, has been laid off five times over the past decade. After the last time, the Oklahoma resident said, she simply gave up looking for another job. “I finally decided that my life would be better if I had more control over it,” Pell said. “No more red tape and politics. No more giving away my skills so I could keep a job.” Pell started a consulting firm, Evergreen Learning Designs, and began charging



South Africans suffer as graft saps provinces By Lydia Polgreen New York Times News Service

TSHIKOTA, South Africa — When she moved from a cramped room in a boardinghouse to her very own bungalow on a speck of land here last year, Jeanette Munyai became one of the millions of South Africans given a decent home by an ambitious government program inaugurated at the end of apartheid. House-proud for the first time in her life, she immediately planted corn, pumpkins and tomatoes on a patch of her yard. Only two things were missing: running water and electricity. “They told us water and light was coming, but we are still using the bush as a toilet,” she said. “We are waiting.” Munyai and her neighbors are unlikely to get water or electricity anytime soon. The provincial government is broke, and the dry pipes and powerless plugs have for her and many others come to symbolize the heavy toll graft and cronyism have taken in this impoverished northern province. Corruption has long bedeviled South Africa, but the crisis here in Limpopo province has pushed the common practice of doling out overstuffed government contracts to people with friends in high places to its logical conclusion: bankruptcy. Provincial officials overspent their budget by an estimated $250 million, much of it on questionable — or blatantly fraudulent — government payments and contracts with private businesses enjoying close ties to the politicians leading the province. “There is evidence emerging that some of these service providers are politically connected, and many of them may have gotten those tenders in dubious kinds of ways,” said Kenneth Brown, deputy director general in the Treasury Department. Dan Sebabi, leader of Limpopo’s branch of Cosatu, the

Space Continued from A1 “NASA is taking it very seriously,” Mason Peck, chief technologist for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said. “It is becoming an important issue.” There is a straightforward solution to the problem: Dispose of the space junk, especially the large pieces, before they collide and break into smaller ones. And so researchers are stepping in with a variety of creative solutions, including nets that would round up wayward items and drag them into the Earth’s atmosphere, where they would harmlessly burn up, and balloons that would similarly direct the debris into the atmosphere. Also on the table: firing lasers from the ground. Not to blow things up, which would only make more of a mess, but to nudge them into safer orbits or into the atmosphere. Just last week, researchers at a top Swiss university, the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, announced that they were designing CleanSpace One, a sort of vacuum cleaner in the sky — an $11 million one — that will be able to navigate close to a satellite and grab it with a big claw, whereupon both will make a fiery death dive. The Swiss have only two satellites in orbit, each smaller than a breadbox, but they are concerned about what to do with them when they stop operating in a few years. “We want to clean up after ourselves,” said Anton Ivanov, a scientist at the institute’s space center. “That’s very Swiss, isn’t it?” The space junk problem is so old and widely acknowledged that it even has a name: the Kessler Syndrome. In 1978, Donald J. Kessler, who led NASA’s office of space debris, first predicted the cascade effect that would take place when leftover objects in space started colliding. Today, Kessler is retired in North Carolina but still contemplating the issue — and the need to clean up. “The sooner they do it, the cheaper it will be,” he said. “The more you wait to start, the more you’ll

powerful coalition of trade unions that is allied with the governing African National Congress, put it more bluntly. “You have leaders who are politicians by day, businessmen by night,” he said. Graft and wasteful spending have sapped the government’s ability to tackle inequality. Only three of 39 government departments were pronounced clean in audits by South Africa’s auditor general last year. Only seven of 237 cities passed muster the year before. “We thought that South Africa could be different from the rest of the countries that came before us on the African continent,” said Gilbert Kganyago, leader of Limpopo’s branch of the South African Communist Party. “But at the rate that things are happening, we have actually caught up to the African scenario quite more quickly than we might have thought.” A recent report by the auditor general found that in the last fiscal year, government officials and their relatives won $15 million in contracts for work with the Defense Department, the Tax Service and the Department of Home Affairs, among others. And that does

not come close to accounting for the many millions of dollars quietly awarded to friends and other associates, experts note. Almost from the moment it was elected to govern in 1994 after decades of fighting to end apartheid, the ANC has struggled with allegations of graft. Jacob Zuma, the current president, took office only after a bevy of corruption charges against him were dismissed amid accusations of prosecutorial misconduct. Corruption is a particularly serious problem in provincial governments, which are responsible for delivering many of the services needed by the poor. Limpopo has the nation’s second-highest proportion of people living in poverty — 62 percent, according to the South African Institute of Race Relations. The average unemployment rate for the province is 40 percent, but it is much higher for blacks and young people. Signs of waste and fraud are everywhere. Pipes that were supposed to bring clean drinking water to parched, impoverished communities were laid improperly and burst, requiring the whole job to be done again,

have to do.” Today, with so many items whizzing around at more than 17,000 miles per hour and shattering as they crash, the threat to working satellites, which are vital to hurricane tracking, GPS systems and military surveillance, has grown more immediate. Three years ago, a derelict Russian satellite slammed into an Iridium communications satellite, smashing both into tens of thousands of pieces.

spacecraft it calls the ElectroDynamic Debris Eliminator — EDDE, for short. Powered by a 6-mile-long wire — make that “space tether” — that generates energy as it is pulled through the Earth’s magnetic field, EDDE would sidle up to a piece of junk, whip out a disposable net to catch it and then move to a lower orbit, where air friction would coax the item to re-enter the atmosphere. EDDE, staying in orbit, would then move on to its next target. Jerome Pearson, the president of Star Technology, said it would take only a few years and a few hundred million dollars for a fleet of EDDEs to clean up the near-Earth neighborhood. (Others suspect that it would take longer and cost more.) Technology is just one hurdle. International politics might be a more serious one. Space junk, even if it is just junk, still belongs to the nation that put it there. So if the United States tried to lasso part of a spent Russian rocket, Russia would most likely protest. Many nations would certainly worry that a ground-based laser capable of pushing satellites around would also be wielded as a weapon. Meanwhile, the space junk problem will not be solved unless everyone launching rockets stops adding to it. The United States has largely done that: All new satellites are now accompanied by plans for how to bring them safely out of orbit. Last month, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested setting up a code of conduct for nations to follow, but that may be more easily said than done. European countries have also been putting together a set of ground rules, but the United States called them too restrictive. Junkins of Texas A&M said the United States should not wait for new international agreements, but instead follow the example of the Swiss in cleaning up after itself. “The U.S. alone could reverse the growth by tackling the several hundred things that we’ve put there that are our responsibility,” he said. “That gives us the moral and technical high ground.”

What’s the worst that could happen? The Air Force currently tracks 20,000 pieces of orbiting space junk, which includes old rocket parts and dead satellites. For now, the risk is real but manageable. Satellite operators can dodge the big debris and armor their satellites to withstand impact with smaller pieces. But eventually, if not cleaned up, low-Earth orbit would become too perilous for people and satellites. “It will be a huge risk for an astronaut to go to space,” said John Junkins, a professor of aerospace engineering at Texas A&M University, adding: “No one will insure a space launch.” The United States has about 500 pieces of large space junk, Junkins said, and Russia about twice that number. “I’m talking about going after things the size of a Greyhound bus,” he said. “Absolutely, this is the heart of the problem.” Taking down five or six of the large intact objects each year would be enough to halt the cascade effect, he said. Eliminating 10 a year would quickly reverse the trend. NASA has started financing research to come up with some solutions. Raytheon, for one, is studying whether a high-altitude balloon might be able to carry a machine that would essentially shoot puffs of air into the path of orbiting debris. Even that slight increase in atmospheric drag could force junk to fall back to Earth. “It actually doesn’t require much,” said Peck, NASA’s chief technologist. NASA just gave $1.9 million to Star Technology and Research, a small company in South Carolina, to develop and test technologies for a

according to local officials. Tiny government houses like the one in which Munyai lives are crumbling only months after being built. Because she has no water, she uses her toilet as a storage closet and has to walk several blocks to a shared pump several times a day. Roads paved a year ago are already covered with potholes. “This road is not more than two years old,” said Geoffrey Tshibvumo, a local councilor from the Congress of the People, a party that broke away from the ANC, as he bounced along a rural road in the province one afternoon. “They spent millions on it, and it is already spoiled.” The crisis here has been brewing for some time. Late last year, the province ran out of money and asked the central government to lend it about $130 million. But the central government balked at handing over such a large sum without first taking a close look at the province’s books. A quick survey of its accounts showed that the state treasury was in chaos. The Education Department had 2,400 more teachers on its payroll than it was budgeted for, and 200 “ghost” teachers, who drew salaries but did not actually exist. The department had overspent its budget by almost $40 million even before ordering textbooks and other supplies for the coming school year. In the Health Department, more than $50 million worth of goods had been improperly ordered, leaving almost nothing for salaries for government nurses and doctors. Public works contracts showed evidence that they had been manipulated, the Treasury Department said, to increase the cost of projects — and presumably the profits of the contractors. Consulting fees ate up a quarter of the infrastructure budget.


Egypt sets trial date for pro-democracy workers By Ernesto Londono The Washington Post

CAIRO — The trial of 43 people charged with unlawfully conducting pro-democracy work will begin Feb. 26, state media reported Saturday, in the latest sign that the Egyptian government is disinclined to heed Washington’s warning that failure to drop the matter could lead to a cutoff of U.S. aid. The announcement of a trial date for the defendants, including at least 16 Americans, came as the state-run newspaper, alAhram, published several stories that portrayed the work of the non-government organizations as underhanded and a threat to Egypt’s sovereignty. The al-Ahram report Saturday said the prodemocracy organizations ramped up efforts and spending after last year’s wintertime revolt. Their work “served specific political tendencies and countries’ agendas, despite the fact that they did not have a license to operate,” the newspaper reported. The newspaper also said that Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had asked Egyptian officials to let him take the seven Americans under indictment who remain in Cairo on his military plane during a recent visit to the country. All of the charged NGO workers are barred from leaving

Egypt, though some were no longer working in Cairo, or happened to be away, when the travel ban was imposed. Egyptian officials turned down Dempsey’s request, the newspaper said, and have continued to resist pressure from the Obama administration and Congress despite repeated warnings that Washington’s $1.5 billion in yearly aid could be cut. A spokesman for Dempsey declined to comment on the report. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is due to arrive in Cairo on today for meetings with Egyptian officials during which he is expected to press for a prompt resolution of the matter. The organizations targeted in the probe include the Washington-based National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute and Freedom House. The seven Americans who remain in Cairo work for IRI and NDI. McCain is the chairman of IRI. NDI’s director for Middle East and North Africa programs, Les Campbell, said in an interview Saturday that the group intended to cooperate with Egyptian authorities but remains worried that the case is politically motivated.

Reading, writing, arithmetic ... and, increasingly, 3 meals a day

Gas prices are highest ever for this time of year

By Heather Hollingsworth

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Too often it is after the fact that teachers discover their students are worrying less about math and reading and more about where the next meal comes from. So Doug White, principal of Garfield Elementary School in inner-city Kansas City, was relieved when his school, like many across the country, began offering dinner to students enrolled in afterschool child care or tutoring programs. With breakfast and lunch already provided for poor students, many children now are getting all their meals at school. “When you know about those situations those kids are bringing into the school and we are asking them to sit down and concentrate and do their work, and they might be hungry and we haven’t been made aware of it yet — we definitely want to do everything we can to help the kids,” White said. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2010, provides federal funds for the afterschool dinner program in areas where at least half the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. Before the change, the program was limited to 13 states and the District of Columbia. Most states had provided money for only after-school snacks. Since the change, districts have started rolling out dinner programs both in states newly able to offer them and states like Missouri where funding was available previously but districts didn’t always know about it. The Congressional Budget Office estimates there will be almost 21 million additional suppers served by

NEW YORK — Gasoline prices have never been higher this time of the year. At $3.53 a gallon, prices are already up 25 cents since Jan. 1. And experts say they could reach a record $4.25 a gallon by late April. “You’re going to see a lot more staycations this year,” says Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. “When the price gets anywhere near $4, you really see people react.” Already, W. Howard Coudle, a retired machinist from Crestwood, Mo., has seen his monthly gasoline bill rise to $80 from about $60 in December. The closest service station is selling regular for $3.39 per gallon, the highest he’s ever seen. “I guess we’re going to have to drive less, consolidate all our errands into one trip,” Coudle says. “It’s just oppressive.” The surge in gas prices follows an increase in the price of oil. Oil around the world is priced differently. Brent crude from the North Sea is a proxy for the foreign oil that’s imported by U.S. refineries and turned into gasoline and other fuels. Its price has risen 11 percent so far this year, to around $119 a barrel, because of tensions with Iran, a cold snap in Europe and rising demand from developing nations. West Texas Intermediate, used to price oil produced in the U.S., is up 4 percent to around $103 a barrel. That’s 19 percent higher than a year earlier. Higher gas prices could hurt consumer spending and curtail the recent improvement in the U.S. economy. A 25-cent jump in gasoline

Students at Garfield Elementary School eat dinner after classes as part of a new program in Kansas City, Mo. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in December 2010, provides federal funds for the after-school dinner program in areas where at least half the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.

“There are some of these kids who you know just don’t eat when they go home.” — Jennifer LeBarre, nutrition services director, Oakland (Calif.) Unified School District

2015 and that number will rise to 29 million by 2020. The added spending would total about $641 million from 2011 to 2020. Advocates for the poor praise the program, but there have been complaints from conservatives who question whether the schools should be feeding kids three meals a day. Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh asked on-air in November, “Why even send the kids home?” Dinners are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child and Adult Care Food Program, which also helps feed people enrolled in child and adult day care programs and emergency shel-

ters. The number of dinners served through the program has grown over the past decade, although the USDA doesn’t currently break out how many meals are served through after-school programs specifically. In California, the Oakland Unified School District started a pilot program in October, dishing up dinner in 11 of its 101 schools. The district plans to expand the program in 19 more schools by the end of the school year. “There are some of these kids who you know just don’t eat when they go home,” said Jennifer LeBarre, nutrition services director for the district, where about 70 percent

of its 38,000 students qualify for subsidized meals. In Tennessee, Memphis City Schools are serving about 14,000 after-school meals daily. About 84 percent of the district’s 110,000 students qualify for free- or reducedprice lunches. Kate Lareau has mixed feelings about the program even though her first-grader enjoys eating dinner at her Memphis elementary school’s after-school program. As a grant-writer for a nonprofit that works with people in a south Memphis housing project, Lareau said she can afford to feed her daughter, but knows that a lot of children go without. “Do we need to provide all three meals? I’m not sure,” she said. “But I personally know children who don’t get any food after they get home. I don’t want those kids to be hungry, for sure.”

prices, if sustained over a year, would cost the economy about $35 billion. That’s only 0.2 percent of the total U.S. economy, but economists say it’s a meaningful amount, especially at a time when growth is only so-so. The economy grew 2.8 percent in the fourth quarter, a rate considered modest following a recession. Gas prices are already an issue in the presidential campaign. Republican candidate Newt Gingrich spoke several times this week about opening up more federal land to oil and gas drilling as a path toward U.S. energy independence — and lower pump prices. “Our goals should be to get gasoline to $2.50 or less so that working families can actually get to work and retired families can travel,” Gingrich said at a campaign event in Los Angeles Thursday. High oil and gas prices now set the stage for even sharper increases at the pump because gas typically rises in March and April. Every spring, refiners suspend operations to switch the type of gasoline they make. Supplies of wintertime gas are sold off before March, when refineries need to start making a new formula of gasoline that’s required in the summer. That can mean less supply for service stations, resulting in higher gas prices. And summertime gasoline is more expensive to make. The government mandates that it contain less butane and other cheap organic compounds because they contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone, a primary constituent in smog. That means more oil, a costlier component, is needed to produce each gallon.


LOCAL BRIEFING Snowmobile passenger hurt Inexperience appeared to be the cause of a snowmobile crash that injured a woman Saturday near Elk Lake Lodge, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said. Alexandra Brill, 22, of Bend, was taken to St. Charles Bend, where she was treated for non-lifethreatening injuries. Brill was a passenger on a snowmobile driven by Kathy Brill, 42, of Bend, that was hit by a snowmobile driven by Luren Goss, 21, of Eugene. Neither Alexandra Brill nor Kathy Brill was wearing a helmet, the Sheriff’s Office said. — Bulletin staff report

HOLIDAY CLOSURES In observance of Presidents Day on Monday, most city, county, state and federal offices will be closed. • Banks will be closed. • Post offices will be closed. • Schools in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties will be closed. • Libraries in Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook counties will be closed.

WASHINGTON WEEK WASHINGTON — On Friday, after months of much-watched negotiations, the House of Representatives voted to extend the payroll tax holiday until 2013. Lawmakers agreed to a twomonth extension just before going on recess in December, but Republicans balked at extending the 2 percent cut to payroll taxes for a full year without equivalent spending cuts as a way to pay for it. Ultimately, Republicans agreed to pass the extension without spending cuts. The tax holiday, in which the government pays a portion of an individual’s social security withholding from each paycheck, translates into savings of roughly $1,000 for employees who earn $50,000. The measure passed 293-132, with 91 Republicans and 41 Democrats voting against it.

Bend fights parking garage vandalism By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

The city of Bend is working with police to curb vandalism in the downtown parking garage. Over the past several months, police have received routine calls on reports of graffiti and other damage to the facility, which is called the Centennial Parking Plaza.

Grant Burke, the facilities manager for the city, said it isn’t that there’s been an increase in problems at the parking garage, but instead an increased focus on enforcement. “Historically the parking garage has always had its share of vandalism and graffiti,” he said. “I’ve been really trying to be proactive in calling the police depart-

ment on every occurrence that we see so it can be documented.” Since Jan. 23, Bend Police have been called to the parking garage at least seven times. Of those, five calls were because of new graffiti mostly found in the stairwells. On Feb. 6, police responded because lights were damaged in one of the

Carving out a niche • Ice sculptors find joy making live art By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

Setting down his chain saw, WinterFest ice carver Jason Waldron turned from a half-carved horse’s head to engage two young boys who had sidled up to the velvet rope to critique his work Saturday afternoon. “That doesn’t look like a horse,” said one boy, jabbing his finger at the muzzle and ears jutting from a block of ice. Waldron nodded. “Is there a horse inside it?” asked the other boy. “In my mind there is,” replied Waldron. “I’ve just gotta find it.” Inside every 300-pound block of ice lurks something different waiting to be brought to life by Waldron and three other ice carvers at WinterFest in the Old Mill District. Creating art in front of a curious crowd is the highlight of WinterFest for the carvers, many of whom come back to the event year after year. Waldron said working as an artist can be isolating, especially for people like him who aren’t particularly comfortable talking with others. But creating or discussing his art puts him at ease, and the conversation flows naturally. “It’s an ice breaker — no pun intended,” he said. “But it really is.” See WinterFest / B6

A HORSE, OF COURSE Jason Waldron uses a chain saw to cut the rough form of a horse’s head while working on his ice sculpture Saturday afternoon at Bend WinterFest. Early in his career, Waldron said he would get frustrated if the ice broke. But now he’s learned to accept it as part of the process. “It kind of reflects how I look at life,” he said.

ROCKET MAN RISES Spectators watch James Royal create an ice sculpture of a rocket man Saturday afternoon at Bend WinterFest. Royal says he’ll carve nearly anything the audience suggests. WinterFest continues today from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

elevators. And on Feb. 12, police responded to a report of a vehicle theft. In the past few months, vandals have done about $5,000 in damage to the facility’s southwest elevator. After the police document the vandalism, Burke said, Burke’s maintenance team cleans it up as quickly as possible. See Vandalism / B2



Shortly after the House approved the payroll tax extension, the Senate also passed it by a 60-36 margin. Six Democrats voted against the measure, while 14 Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., voted in favor. Speaking on Friday in Washington state, President Obama indicated he would sign the extension as soon as he returned to the nation’s capitol.

Central Oregon Community College students who want to check on their progress toward a degree may now do so in a matter of seconds. The process used to take up to eight weeks. Until this year, COCC students had to request a transcript review, a paperwork-heavy process that took progressively longer as the college’s enrollment soared in recent years. By using a program called GradTracks, however, COCC students may now check their academic records and monitor their degree progress almost instantaneously. GradTracks appeals to Kayla Roebuck, a busy second-year student who holds down a job while pursuing an accounting degree. “For me, personally, I like to see something in front of me,” Roebuck said. “Having the opportunity of seeing what classes I still need will help me keep on track.” GradTracks is a renamed version of DegreeWorks — made by Pennsylvania-based SunGard Higher Education — and cost COCC about $140,000, according to Alicia Moore, dean of student and enrollment services. Ongoing maintenance will cost about $5,000 annually. Colleges and universities increasingly use similar systems. Launching GradTracks was COCC’s effort to keep up with “best practices,” Moore said. Without GradTracks, the college would have to hire at least one more full-time employee to keep up with student demand, said Moore. The college currently has two transcript evaluators. They will now be responsible for updating GradTracks with such information as classes offered by other colleges that are equivalent to those offered by COCC. . As more students use GradTracks to obtain basic information, academic advisers should have more time to work with students on long-term plans, Moore said. “The system allows that to be much more efficient and much more expedited and get information to students much more quickly,” Moore said. In addition to checking on academic progress, students may now “shop” for other degrees. If, for instance, a student wants to move from business to psychology, GradTracks can tell her instantly how the change would affect her graduation date. The system should also improve planning, said Aimee Metcalf, COCC’s registrar and director of admissions. Because GradTracks is a central system that tracks each student’s academic plan and progress, it will improve the college’s ability to predict how many students will take a certain class in a particular term. “It’s going to take a while to get a feel for that and accuracy of that. Once we do, we’re going to be able to get our arms around predicting what courses are needed and in what quantity,” Metcalf said.

100 YEARS AGO For the week ending Feb. 18, 1912

Comes to Bend to live J.P. Keyes, who has been connected with the Scanlon, Gipson and Brooks interests

for many years, arrived in Bend last week and will make his home here. He will be associated with The Bend Company. He is a brother-in-law of Dr. D.F. Brooks, president of the company. Mr. Keyes has rented the Redfield residence and will be joined shortly by his wife and three children, who are visiting relatives in Seattle. Mr. Keyes is thoroughly acquainted with the timber business, having been in charge of plants in various

parts of the country. He was in charge of the construction of the paper mill at Powell River, B.C., erected by the same men who are interested in The Bend Company.

Oregon Trunk going south The Oregon Trunk Railway has filed for record with the county clerk at Prineville deeds for right of way and depot grounds in La Pine, 30 miles south of here. When the purchase was made is

not known here but it is presumed that it was a recent transaction. The right of way is a 100foot strip in section 14. Also a town lot and other property were included in the purchase, which was made from the La Pine Townsite Company. This acquiring of property south of here is taken in Bend as an indication that the railway will begin construction of the line south of here at no

very distant date.

Inquiries pour in Inquiries about Bend and the Central Oregon country are pouring in from all parts of the country in a greater volume than ever before. Manager Sawhill says the number of letters received this year is three times as great as in 1911, indicating that there will be a big influx of home seekers this spring and summer.

Vandalism Continued from B1 Burke said he hopes by reporting each instance, the police will be able to establish a pattern and get it stopped. Six times each night, security personnel walk through the parking garage. They write condition reports and contact the police if there’s something illegal taking place there. But it hasn’t been enough to curb the problems. Often, the same graffiti tags pop up in the building. Most recently, Burke said, he’s seen “crude language and caricatures, restroom wall-type stuff.” After police contacted a group of young adults loitering in the structure, most of the graffiti stopped. “We’ve discussed several things in regards to vandalism and improving the safety of the parking garage,” Burke said. “One of the things we’ve talked about is installing surveillance camera systems down there. Other things that have been brought up are removing the doors to the stairwells so they’re a little more visible, so folks don’t go in there and do whatever they’re going to do in there.” Burke said another consideration might be changing garage hours. “The city wants the parking garage to be a safe environment. We want it to look like it’s taken care of, and it’s just really important for us to have the parking garage be a safe environment for patrons that use it,” Burke said. “It’s unfortunate for the investment that the city put into that building, to let it go to pot. ... So we’re really trying to make a change in how that structure is viewed by the public.” — Reporter: 541-617-7831,


Pay tribute to priest in solemn rites

Continued from B1

Bend paid tribute to one of its most respected citizens, the Baker City diocese honored a faithful worker and the Irish Capuchins of the world tendered their respects to a great friar here this morning when funeral services were held for Father Luke Sheehan, Catholic priest in Bend for the past 27 years. Every available bit of space in the huge church, erected years ago through the efforts of Father Sheehan, was occupied as parishioners, churchmen and close friends of other faiths came to pay their respects to the priest who played such an important part in the religious and civic life of Bend. Occupying a pew in the crowded church were six members of the Protestant clergy of Bend.

75 YEARS AGO For the week ending Feb. 18, 1937

Father Luke Sheehan (Editorial) More than a quarter of a century ago, a young Irish Franciscan priest began his mission in Central Oregon. Under the vows of poverty of his order, his outward equipment was scanty in the extreme; spiritually and mentally, he brought with him unusual qualifications for the task set before him. Father Luke Sheehan was imbued with a deep-seated religious conviction, his faith was unswerving. In his mind was firm determination which never abated. In his heart was a vast human understanding and sympathy, a love of mankind which was second only to his love of God, a resolve to give of himself to the utmost toward the betterment of mankind and the service of God. From this resolve, Father Sheehan never deviated. In his early days in Bend, in his missions through a far-flung undeveloped area, he encountered hardships and privations which would have deterred a lesser man. He welcomed them. Through his work, the church grew, became an incredible factor for good in the community. Its growth brought increased responsibility to its minister, and he welcomed that also. With his fine ability, his splendid educational qualifications, and his naturally high mental endowments, Father Sheehan, it is certain, could have sought and gained advancement and preferment in the church world, but that sort of ambition was not a part of his makeup. Here in Bend and the Bend country was his work. He sought more work, and his efforts and untiring service widened the scope of his activities here, and so made his work of progressive importance. Father Sheehan was a churchman who held steadfastly to lofty ideals. Those ideals included full recognition of the duties of citizenship. He accepted them and discharged them as he accepted and discharged all his duties. Kindliness, helpfulness, and sincere interest in the welfare and problems of others are reflected in the regard in which we hold those who manifest them. Father Sheehan was loved and respected throughout his sphere of influence. His going is mourned by all who knew him whether of his church or not.

‘Meritorious’ award made to Vince Genna Bend city recreation director Vince Genna was awarded the “Meritorious” trophy at the 14th annual Bill Hayward banquet of Champions in Portland Thursday evening. The honor, one of the five top awards presented at the Oregon sports banquet, was given in recognition of Genna’s service to youth baseball and recreation in the Central Oregon area. Barney Keep, Portland television announcer and master of ceremonies, cited many of Genna’s achievements. Those included working to provide baseball for 1,000 local youngsters; his work in helping to obtain fine Little League, Bantam League, and Junior League baseball fields; his work as driving force behind improvements at Municipal Park, giving Bend one of the finest amateur baseball parks in the Northwest; his work in other youth recreation projects; coaching American Legion team; and helping to bring Bend West Coast American Legion tourneys in 1959, 1960, and 1961. It was also noted that Genna coached an Oregon state Legion champion at Salem, and later at Bend in 1958. Several hundred sports fans attended the banquet, with Woody Hayes, Ohio State football coach, as featured speaker. Hayes stressed the value of competition. “The day we forget how to compete, that’s the day we’re in trouble,” Hayes said. “And I think educators can use some coaching philosophy — name-

ly, to try and get each student to put out to the maximum of his ability. “All too many are willing to take low success, rather than risk high failure.” Genna, still weak after being surprised by his award, added, “That’s my philosophy exactly.”

Price of gas drops below two-bits as ‘war’ flares Another gas war has broken out between Bend service stations, plunging price of regular gasoline to 24.9 cents a gallon. The big drop came over the weekend after being preceded by a small war initiated several weeks ago. A gas war also erupted last summer in Redmond. But, while Bend operators called an armistice late last fall (boosting regular gas to 34.9 cents a gallon), Redmond operators continued to sell regular for

24.9 cents a gallon. Just who started the latest war is not known. But the difference in Redmond prices is believed to have been a big factor. Drivers in many other parts of Oregon are also enjoying reduced gas prices. But for service station operators, war is still hell ...

25 YEARS AGO For the week ending Feb. 18, 1987

Skyliners Lodge memories fresh Bill Myers saw the building of the Bend Skyliners Lodge from the ground up. Myers and his younger brother, John, were hired one summer to cut firewood from the tops of the trees that a logging crew had cut for the lodge.

The brothers camped in a grove of quaking aspens about a mile up the road from the building site and used a team of horses to drag the tree tops to their work place each evening. “We’d average about a cord a day,” remembered Myers. The hill near the rustic lodge, dedicated in October 1936, “was the main outdoor recreation area for skiers and jumpers,” Myers said. “Skiing was really coming into its own.” The skiing crowds have come and gone, with the downhill skiers now going to Mount Bachelor. The lodge still stands, although its doors and windows are shuttered and logs no longer crackle in its three huge stone fireplaces. But in the years to come, the 50-year-old lodge could again come to life.

This winter the U.S. Forest Service is asking the public to comment on what should be done with the building. Although Linda Carlson was not born until after the lodge’s heyday, she can feel a sense of history about the place. “You just don’t see this kind of stuff anymore,” said Carlson, cultural resources technician for the Bend Ranger District. “There’s a lot of love in this place, in building it.” Examples of the workmanship are the lodge’s nails, hinges and ironwork, all of which were made by hand by a Swedish blacksmith, according to a Forest Service document outlining the history of the lodge. Members of the Skyliners organization held dances and bridge parties to pay for the furnishings, all made of heavy knotty pine.


O N Tribalcourtsdeliver‘restorativejustice’ By Tyler Richardson The World

COOS BAY — For years, Judge Donald Costello sentenced offenders to jail and prison terms, only to see them back in his courtroom with nothing to show for their time served. Costello doesn’t work that way anymore. Instead, he practices an innovative spin on the judicial system that has become an effective restorative-justice program. “Our recidivism rate is around 5 percent,” said Diane Whitson, court clerk for the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Suislaw Indians. “There is as much as a 67 percent failure rate of people who are incarcerated. We haven’t had anyone reoffend since we started this system.” That system is known as the Peacegiving Court. Costello was part of a team that invented it in Deschutes County, and now it’s part of the judicial systems for both the Coquille Indian Tribe and the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Suislaw Indians. Restorative justice emphasizes repairing the harm caused by the crime, making offenders take accountability for their actions and their crimes’ effect on victims. The victims are active participants, providing insight on a crime’s impact and helping devise solutions. Joe Ward could tell by the look on his cousin’s face he was in trouble. There would be no warnings or second chances this time. The cousin, a Coquille tribal police officer, stopped Ward in 2004 for driving with a suspended license. Ward had neglected to pay nearly $6,000 in traffic fines. Little did he know, Ward was set to become the poster boy for a new peacegiving process that many tribal members still doubted. “Joe was really the model case to answer people’s questions if this would work,” Costello said. Costello could have imposed additional fines and re-

voked Ward’s driver’s license. But that would have left Ward unable to work and provide for his family. Instead, Costello referred him to the Peacegiving Court. There, Ward was connected with a peacegiver, a mentor handpicked to create a plan for Ward’s future. Ward was then put into a peacegiving circle, in which the people affected by his poor decisions spoke to him. The circle included the peacegiver, Ward’s aunt and his boss, among others. A contract was then drawn up that allowed Ward to borrow money from his aunt and boss to pay off the fines while he continued to work. He also had to go through every tedious step to regain his driver’s license. “There was a lot of appointments and running around,” he said. “That piece of license is gold, and that whole process made me realize that.” Within four months, Ward regained his license, which he happily showed to Costello. Soon after that, he paid his debts. “It really taught me to be responsible,” he said. “It was a good way to get me to learn a lesson.” Costello is the father of the Peacegiving Court. He began practicing restorative justice

in the state court system in Deschutes County in 1984. Costello said he did away with such words as “punishment” and concepts like leniency. He focused instead on ways to teach offenders the real consequences of their actions. Soon, Costello and his fellow judges were seeing lower recidivism rates. In 1997, Costello was approached by the leaders of the Coquille Tribe. They were concerned about leadership within the tribe. They wanted to challenge the community to find other ways of justice. Costello became the Coquille Tribe’s chief judge and began working with tribal leaders. The Confederated Tribes joined the project in 2002, and soon both tribes had their models in place. “He is the god when it comes to the Peacegiving Court,” Whitson said. “We have all been trained by him.” Tribal members who violate tribal law can’t get into Peacegiving Court unless they admit their guilt. Person-toperson disputes also can go to Peacegiving Court. The party or parties are then connected with a peacegiver, who guides them through an agreed-upon plan. Most peacegiving cases involve juveniles, but adults can be referred as well.

Iraq War ended before deployment in ’08, veteran claims in PTSD suit The Associated Press PORTLAND — An insurance company that denied benefits to a military veteran faces a federal lawsuit that argues its reasoning was groundless because the U.S. wasn’t at war with Iraq in 2008. Jerico McCoy, 29, said Iraq was a sovereign nation when he deployed there in 2008. He was denied benefits for posttraumatic stress disorder by his former employer’s insurer, which cited an exception to its health coverage if an injury was caused by an “act of war.” McCoy sued Aetna Inc. for using the exclusion to deny his benefits claim, which would have paid him his full salary of $1,056 a week during an unpaid medical leave granted by his employer, Bank of America, according to the lawsuit. McCoy was sent twice to Iraq, once in 2003 and again in 2008. On his second deployment, he joined a psychologi-

cal operations team traveling through western and southern Iraq. In the time between the deployments, McCoy took a job with Bank of America in Virginia in 2005, then switched to a bank branch in Oregon. After his second Iraq tour, he suffered from post-traumatic stress that eventually forced him to resign in April 2011, the lawsuit said. Aetna, which administers Bank of America’s benefits program, cited a clause in his benefits coverage that says disability benefits are not paid “for a disability resulting from acts of war, participation in a riot, insurrection, rebellion or civil commotion.” McCoy’s lawsuit argued that the Iraq war ended by the time he was deployed in October 2008, when Iraq was a sovereign country allied with the United States. Injuries suffered by soldiers who were on bases in allied nations such as

those in Korea and Germany would not be considered results from an act of war, he argued. In emails with Aetna, an administrator raised questions about the depth of McCoy’s disability and said at one point that he failed to produce enough medical evidence to support his claim, according to The Oregonian. A message left by The Associated Press for Aetna’s communications team was not immediately returned Saturday. McCoy claimed that after he returned to the U.S. in 2009, he was unable to concentrate and complete schoolwork at the University of Phoenix because of his condition. He dropped out in August 2010. He returned to work in January 2011, but said his symptoms forced him to resign later. McCoy filed the lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland. No hearing dates have been set.

“When a person commits an offense, it’s not just one person involved,” Whitson said. “Multiple people are affected. We find out everybody who is involved and give them the chance to speak.” The Coquille Tribe and the Confederated Tribes oversee areas within Coos, Curry, Lane and Douglas counties. The Coquille Tribe also stretches to Jackson County, and the Confederated Tribes reach Lincoln County. Any violation or dispute on tribal lands in these counties can be referred to a Peacegiving Court. The court handles only what a state system would call misdemeanors, mostly dealing with vandalism, theft, personto-person violence, custodial interference and some drugand alcohol-related offenses. Any tribal member who commits a federal felony goes to non-tribal court. The peacegivers are volunteers, and the system costs the tribe almost nothing. By comparison, Whitson estimates incarcerating an offender costs nearly $32,000 a year. Costello dismisses any suggestion that his restorative justice system is soft on crime. “Having sent a lot of people to jail in my life, I have never really noticed anything productive happen while they were there,” he said. “It’s just time spent. I have never had anybody say to me, ‘(Peacegiving) is not effective.’ It has never happened.” Whitson agrees. “If people think the peacegiving court is easy, they are mistaken,” she said. “The peacegivers make the children acknowledge and accept what they have done. They make them restore.”

Umatilla considers Fire kills 1 in home small farms without smoke alarm PENDLETON — Three zones in Umatilla County are being considered for exceptions to state and county limits on minimum farm size, a change that has been the subject of court fights and is considered essential to the region’s economic future. The Umatilla County planning commission will hear a proposal next week to create lots of between 10 acres and 40 acres, the East Oregonian reports. The state minimum for farmland is 160 acres. Wheat farmers in Umatilla County have worried in the past that allowing smaller farms would let niche industries like grape-growing wine operations to flourish in the area, as they have in nearby Walla Walla, Wash.

PORTLAND — An early morning house fire in north Portland left one man dead as firefighters reported flames so hot they started to melt their helmet shields. The Saturday morning blaze was reported about 4 a.m. Firefighters found several people fleeing the two-story home’s basement and first floor. The house had rooms rented out, and none of them appeared to have working smoke detectors. The house’s occupants urged firefighters to search the home’s second floor, where they found a 39-year-old man dead in a hallway. — From wire reports

T W Washington investigates refinery blaze Mining firm’s By Phuong Le The Associated Press

SEATTLE — State safety inspectors are investigating the cause of a dramatic blaze at Washington’s largest oil refinery Friday near Blaine, as BP launched its own review into why it happened. The fire broke out in the sole crude processing unit at the BP Cherry Point refinery in northwest Washington, sending plumes of black smoke visible for miles. The fire was extinguished about an hour later, BP spokesman Scott Dean said. One person suffered a minor injury. It was too early to know what caused the blaze, Dean said Saturday. Other units at the facility are on standby until the company completes an assessment and restart plan, which means the facility is currently not processing crude oil, he added. “It’s too soon to speculate on a restart (date) or duration of the outage,” Dean said. Another BP spokesman, William Kidd, said overall production could be halved in the next several days, but the effect on future production won’t be fully known until they know the extent of damage. The refinery still has finished product in tanks to produce gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, he said, adding: “It’s not like our tanks went dry.” The 1-square-mile refinery employs more than 800 people and can process as much as

Firefighters spray water to extinguish a fire at the BP Cherry Point refinery, north of Ferndale, Wash., on Friday. A fire at Washington’s largest oil refinery broke out Friday afternoon, sparking bursts of flames and creating a thick plume of black smoke that could be seen for miles.

230,000 barrels of crude oil a day, mostly transportation fuels, from Alaska. “Our top priority yesterday was getting the fire under control quickly and making sure no one got hurt,” Dean said. The next steps will be getting a crew safely into the location where the fire occurred, he said. A BP report overnight to the National Response Center suggested a flange fire had started between the north vacuum heater and the north

vacuum tower of the crude unit, but “that is not at all confirmed,” Kidd told the Bellingham Herald. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tested the air near the facility and at locations downwind and found no measurable threats from airborne pollutants related to the fire, according to spokesman Mark MacIntyre. “No readings were found to be above background or demonstrate any level of concern,” Andy Smith, EPA’s federal

on-scene coordinator, said in a statement Saturday. Meanwhile, BP crews were working to secure the site where the fire occurred, so it may be a couple days before inspectors can do an initial walk-through, Department of Labor and Industries spokesman Hector Castro said. State inspectors could begin interviewing employees as early as Tuesday, Castro said. All 848 employees and contractors on site were accounted for early on during the fire, BP refinery manager Stacey McDaniel said in a statement. One contract employee was treated at the scene for a knee injury during the evacuation and was later released from a hospital. According to the company website, the Cherry Point refinery supplies about 20 percent of Washington state’s gasoline, and the majority of the jet fuel used in Seattle, Vancouver and Portland airports. The refinery has the ability to produce 2.5 million gallons of jet fuel, 3.5 million gallons of gasoline, 2.2 million gallons of diesel, 360,000 gallons of butane and 140,000 gallons of propane. In 2010, the refinery was fined more than $69,000 for 13 serious safety violations, but those were not in the crude processing unit where the fire occurred, Castro said. He added that all five of the state’s refineries have been fined for safety regulations.

In serial killers’ graveyard, a town’s wounds reopen By Malia Wollan New York Times News Service

LINDEN, Calif. — For residents of this tiny farming community, it was only a matter of time before someone unearthed the bones. It has been 13 years since two methamphetamine users known as the “speed freak killers” were arrested for multiple murders spanning decades. But until now, the bodies were never found. “I’ve been in law enforcement in San Joaquin County for 30 years, and this is the most gruesome case I’ve been involved with,” said Les Garcia, spokesman for the county’s sheriff’s department. In recent weeks, law enforcement officials have dug up more than 1,000 bones, including two human skulls, which have been preliminarily identified as two known victims of Wesley Shermantine, 45, and Loren Herzog, childhood friends from Linden. After being offered $33,000 by a Sacramento-based bounty hunter named Leonard Padilla, Shermantine, now an inmate on death row, drew up a series of maps, which were sent this month to Padilla and to Scott Smith, a reporter for The Stockton Record. The maps show locations where Shermantine and Her-

zog allegedly hid bodies. The maps were turned over to law enforcement officials who have so far searched three sites, including an old well identified on the map as “Herzog’s Bone Yard,” which has yielded more than 1,000 bones, plus clothing, beer bottles, a purse, shoes, car parts and a woman’s ring. The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Department will bring in cadaver dogs to search for a second well, which Shermantine has said could contain more than a dozen additional bodies. Nearly everyone in this town of fewer than 2,000 people some 95 miles east of San Francisco has a story about the two men, who were known as wild partiers and methamphetamine users. “It’s freaky when you realize you knew someone like that,” said Jennifer Brown, 57, a bartender from nearby Clements. Shermantine and Herzog were regulars at several of the local bars, including the Linden Inn, owned by John Vanderheiden. “I heard him boasting about how he killed a guy just to kill him,” said Vanderheiden, who said he shrugged off Herzog’s stories as barroom bragging until 1998, when his 25-year-old daughter, Cyndi, disappeared after a night out with the men.

Herzog and Shermantine were arrested in 1999 after investigators identified Cyndi Vanderheiden’s blood in Shermantine’s car. In 2001, a jury found Shermantine guilty of four murders, including those of Vanderheiden, two men shot to death in their car on a remote stretch of highway in 1984 and 16-year-old Chevelle Wheeler, who disappeared in 1985. Two skulls that were found in recent weeks using Shermantine’s maps have been preliminarily identified by forensics experts as belonging to Wheeler and Vanderheiden. The bones have been turned over to the state’s justice department for DNA analysis. Sentenced to death, Shermantine is now in San Quentin State Prison. Herzog was found guilty of three murders in 2001, but was paroled in 2010 after an appeals court threw out his earlier conviction, saying investigators coerced his confession. Both men have long maintained that the other did the killing. On Jan. 16, Herzog, 46, was found dead near a trailer on the grounds of the High Desert State Prison, near Susanville, Calif. He is believed to have hanged himself hours after receiving a phone call from Padilla, the bounty hunter,

Proposed change to animal shelter law in California raises euthanasia concern By Christina Villacorte Los Angeles Daily News

LOS ANGELES — Jasper is one of the lucky few — an adorable mixed breed stray puppy adopted from the Castaic animal shelter almost at the moment he arrived. In another kennel, Kato, an 11-year-old Akita mix needing pain medication, continues to wait for a “forever home.” But Kato’s time left before facing possible euthanasia is short — and would be even shorter under a new budgetsaving proposal from Gov. Jerry Brown. Brown is hoping to convince the state Legislature to save about $23 million a year by repealing provisions of state law that require longer holding periods before euthanasia for shelter animals. The Hayden Law, passed in 1998, requires holding periods of four to six days for

shelter animals before euthanasia — an increase from the 72 hours in previous state law — and requires the state to reimburse cities and counties for the costs of the extra time. Brown’s proposal would not force shelters to euthanize animals after 72 hours — but the state would no longer pay them for expenses longer than that, according to H.D. Palmer, spokesman for the state Department of Finance. “It would simply say that the state is not going to reimburse local governments for the cost associated with that additional holding period beyond three days,” Palmer said. The state temporarily suspended the Hayden Law (named for former state Sen. Tom Hayden) in 2009, during the worst of the recession. Since then, it has avoided reimbursing local governments for stray and lost animals’

fourth, fifth or sixth days at shelters. The governor’s new plan would make that suspension permanent and exempt the state from paying some back reimbursements from when the law was still in effect. Many municipalities, including Los Angeles County and city, already hold animals for longer than six days, at their own expense. If the repeal is approved, the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control would permanently lose $600,000 a year in Hayden Law reimbursements at a time when many people are still losing jobs and homes, forcing them to give up their pets. The department took in about 87,000 animals in 2011. Of those, about 28,000 were adopted — 25,000 of them after the 72-hour holding period had elapsed.

alerting him that Shermantine intended to reveal where the two had hidden the bodies of their victims. “He hyperventilated when I told him,” Padilla said. “He knew he would also end up on death row.” In the 14 years since his daughter disappeared, Vanderheiden has searched hundreds of sites for her remains. In the early years, he rallied local residents for extensive search parties of nearby walnut orchards, vineyards and cattle pastures. Often together with Padilla, he scoured the Central Valley, digging holes, crawling down abandoned mine shafts and into old wells. On the barn next to the doublewide trailer where Vanderheiden lives with his wife, Terri, hangs a faded sign that reads “Cyndi Search Headquarters.” “I’ll leave it up until we get her home, bury her and put her to rest,” Vanderheiden said. “After that, I’ll take the sign down, because the search will finally be over.”

Mount St. Helens plan sparks fight By Phuong Le TheAssociated Press

SEATTLE — A Canadian company wants to continue test drilling for copper and other minerals near Mount St. Helens in southwest Washington, but environmentalists worry the move could open the door to mine development near a national monument. A subsidiary of Vancouver, B.C.-based Ascot Resources is seeking permits from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to drill 63 small holes on federal forest land mostly within the blast zone of the 1980 volcanic eruption. The company wants to explore both private and public mineral estates. The area is rich in copper but the company won’t know that until it explores, said Robert Evans, Ascot’s chief financial officer. It’s too early to know whether the company would move forward with a mine, he added. “Until you’ve got the results, you don’t know if you’ve got an economically viable deposit,” said Evans. “You don’t know how you’re going to proceed. We’re just trying to find out some facts.” BLM is evaluating the company’s plans and is holding public meetings Wednesday and Thursday to decide what should be included in an environmental assessment.

Little ad

Ascot is seeking two prospecting permits to drill on forest land near Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, which draws thousands of visitors and recreationists each year. If all goes well, Evans said, the company hoped to be in the field by mid-September. Opponents worry about what exploratory drilling would do to nearby streams and recreational areas. They say a hard-rock mine located on the edge of the monument could potentially pollute drinking water for surrounding communities, as well as interfere with hunting, fishing and backcountry hiking. “We still have concerns about what Ascot will be doing on this area,” said Jessica Walz, conservation director for Gifford Pinchot Task Force, an advocacy group based in Portland. “From our perspective, you wouldn’t put as much money if you weren’t intending to do something a lot larger.” Ascot began exploratory drilling in 2010 in an area that has been periodically explored for copper, gold, silver and other minerals for over a century. Company officials said the results were promising enough to continue. Ascot then planned in late 2011 to drill another 30 holes in the same area but those plans were delayed.

Marvin Loren Mix Aug. 23, 1934 - Feb. 12, 2012 Marvin Loren Mix, age 77, of Bend died Sunday, February 12, 2012. Marvin was born August 23, 1934, in Maitland, SD. He was the eighth of 11 children born to Robert Leland and Ella Rae (Harper) Mix, and raised in the Black Hills South Dakota region, in Marvin Loren the comMix pany gold mining town of Terraville. He loved airplane mechanics and modeling from an early age, eventually serving in the U.S. Air Force Strategic Air Command from 1953-1957, as a bomber and transport jet engine mechanic, primarily stationed at Smoky Hills AFB near Wichita, KS. After serving his country he worked in maintenance at a Cleveland Hospital. While in Cleveland, he met and married Marjorie Ann Gunesch. In 1965, they moved to Brookings, OR, where he worked at the Brook-Ply Mill (later named South Coast Lumber) for 27 years, and then moved to Bend in 1995. In Brookings, they raised three children, Robert Rudolph (wife, Carol Ann) of Muskogee, OK; Cloyd Russell of Crooked River Ranch; and deceased daughter, Carol Mae formerly of Bend. He is survived by his wife, six grandchildren, Anna and Abby of Muskogee, and Christopher, Joshua, Amanda, and Isaac of Bend; and four siblings, Lorna, Nellie and Harley of Deadwood/ Sturgis, SD, and Robert of Houston. He was preceded in death by his parents, daughter, Carol; and siblings, Ray, Cloyd, Helen Kinney, William, Hazel Trimmer, and Arlene Burke. Marvin loved children, especially his grandkids. He loved to make them laugh like his father before him. He was a very resourceful and creative person who always looked for ways to help people by fixing items, or by creating things from parts and pieces others might throw out. He showed his love or concern for others by helping them. He enjoyed fishing, building model planes and wooden toys, and reading any book his kids brought home. He passed on his love of military airplanes, and his helpful, resourceful, and curious nature to his children. He was a very reliable, steady, frugal and trustworthy man who worked hard at providing for his family. His ashes will be interred with military honors at Deschutes Memorial Gardens next to his daughter's gravesite. No services are planned. Contributions to Partners In Care Hospice, 2075 NE Wyatt Ct., Bend, 97701 are suggested.

Adventurer John Fairfax rowed across oceans By Margalit Fox New York Times News Service

He crossed the Atlantic because it was there, and the Pacific because it was also there. He made both crossings in a rowboat because it, too, was there, and because the lure of sea, spray and sinew, and the history-making chance to traverse two oceans without steam or sail, proved irresistible. In 1969, after six months alone on the Atlantic battling storms, sharks and encroaching madness, John Fairfax, who died this month at 74, became the first lone oarsman in recorded history to traverse any ocean. In 1972, he and his girlfriend, Sylvia Cook, sharing a boat, became the first people to row across the Pacific, a yearlong ordeal during which their craft was thought lost. Both journeys were the subject of fevered coverage by the news media. They inspired two memoirs by Fairfax, “Britannia: Rowing Alone Across the Atlantic� and, with Cook, “Oars Across the Pacific,� both published in the early 1970s. Fairfax died Feb. 8 at his home in Henderson, Nev., near Las Vegas. The apparent cause was a heart attack, said his wife, Tiffany, his only immediate survivor. For all its bravura, Fairfax’s seafaring almost pales beside his earlier ventures. At 9, he settled a dispute with a pistol. At 13, he lit out for the Amazon jungle. At 20, he attempted suicideby-jaguar. Afterward he was apprenticed to a pirate.

FEATURED OBITUARY To please his mother, who did not take kindly to his being a pirate, he briefly managed a mink farm, one of the few truly dull entries on his otherwise crackling rĂŠsumĂŠ. The only child of an English father and a Bulgarian mother, John Fairfax was born on May 21, 1937, in Rome, where his mother had family; he scarcely knew his father, who worked in London for the BBC. On Jan. 20, 1969, Fairfax pushed off from the Canary Islands, bound for Florida. His 22-foot craft, the Britannia, was the Rolls-Royce of rowboats: made of mahogany, it had been created for the voyage by the eminent English boat designer Uffa Fox. It was self-righting, self-bailing and partly covered. Aboard were provisions (Spam, oatmeal, brandy); water; and a temperamental radio. There was no support boat and no chase plane — only Fairfax and the sea. He caught fish and sometimes boarded passing ships to cadge food, water and showers. The long, empty days spawned a temporary madness. Desperate for female company, he talked ardently to the planet Venus. On July 19, 1969 — Day 180 — Fairfax, tanned, tired and about 20 pounds lighter, made landfall at Hollywood, Fla. “This is bloody stupid,â€? he said as he came ashore. Two years later, he was at it again.

July 26, 1931 - February 11, 2012 Jack finished his race at home in Portland, cared for by his family and hospice. He served as director of the Alcohol Treatment and Training Center in Portland until retirement in 1987. He was a crosscountry and track athlete at the University of Colorado. Jack competed in over 500 local running events until the end of his career in 2011. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Betty, and two sons. Mark and his wife Ann live in Redmond, and Jim and his wife Christa live in Portland. His grandchildren, Jed Daniel and Rae Elise were his pride and joy. A Celebration of Life will be held in Portland, Sunday February 19, 2012 in the RiverPlace Athletic Club conference room at 1pm, followed by a memorial walk along the riverfront and refreshments. Donations in Jack’s name to Kaiser Permanente Hospice can be made in lieu of flowers by calling (503) 499-5653.

MORE AT WINTERFEST Jenna Hansen, 8, tries to stack several nails on the head of an upright nail at one of the many educational puzzles at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry display at Bend WinterFest on Saturday. The fun continues today from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ryan Brennecke The Bulletin

W interFest Continued from B1 Fellow carver James Royal is more of a showman, showering the kids in the front row with blasts of snow kicked up by his whirring saw, and waving around lumps of ice as they come off the outer edges of his blocks. A full-time ice sculptor, Royal made his first ice carvings while working in a seafood restaurant more than 25 years ago, and now earns a living turning out a few sculptures each week from a walkin freezer/studio at his home near Seattle. Royal said at WinterFest, he’ll carve nearly anything his audience suggests. As his first project of the day Saturday, he opted for a rocket man, adapted from an image he’d seen in a comic book and hastily sketched on a scrap of paper. “The helmet, the fin on top, a jet pack — he’s just taking off,” he said. Royal and Waldron both said this year’s WinterFest weather is a bit warmer than ideal for ice carving, but expect their creations will sur-

vive through today, and plan to keep sculpting until their ice supply runs out. Waldron started ice carving about eight years ago. It’s an easy medium to sculpt, he said, much faster to shape than the bronze, wood and clay he also works with, but the trade-off is breakage, a risk every ice carver has to contend with. Early on, Waldron would get angry and frustrated when a sculpture would break, but he has come to accept that as part of the process. “It kind of reflects how I look at life too,” he said. “Things happen. If you’re going to get upset, it doesn’t change anything.” Winterfest continues today, with gates open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Admission is $8.

Built in 1903 to serve the Oregon Short Line Railroad, a Union Pacific subsidiary, Nampa’s Victorian station is now the Nampa Train Depot Museum. It houses the offices of the Canyon County Historical Society, which has launched a $330,000 restoration project.

• Popular horse events draw thousands, bringing rapid growth to Nampa and Caldwell For the Bulletin NAMPA, Idaho — he iron horse was largely responsible for the early development of Idaho’s second-largest city. But the four-legged horse has had as much to do with its modern growth as any mechanical creature. Nampa and its neighboring city of Caldwell got their starts in the 1880s, after the Oregon Short Line Railroad,


a subsidiary of the Union Pacific, bypassed the territorial capital of Boise. The railroad established stations in both communities and sparked a growth spurt, encouraged by the building of irrigation canals. Nampa’s handsome Victorian station and a luxurious hotel, the Dewey Palace, both opened in 1903 and attracted visitors from far and wide. But in the decades after World War I, Nampa — the Canyon County seat of government, whose name is an adaptation of the Shoshone Indian word for “footprint” — and Caldwell

Antique malls, used-book stores and budget cafes line First Street South in downtown Nampa, where a civic group is championing a Historic Facade Restoration Project. Most of these structures were built after a 1909 fire devastated more than a full city block.

NORTHWEST TRAVEL In 2 weeks: Heceta Head and Yachats grew at a snail’s pace. With agrarian economies based upon such goods as potatoes, sugar and dairy products, they existed in the shadow of Boise, 20 miles east on the Interstate 84 corridor that links Portland with Salt Lake City. Adjuncts of ranch life, and highlights of each town’s annual calendars, were summer rodeos. Launched as a bucking contest in 1913, expanded to roundup format in 1937, Nampa’s Snake River Stampede, held each July, has grown to become one of the top 10 rodeos in the nation, according to the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. And the Caldwell Night Rodeo, which dates from 1935, is a major event in mid-August. But it was the construction of the Idaho Center and Horse Park in northeast Nampa that truly began a new era of population growth. Since the complex opened in 1998, hundreds of thousands of event attendees, and millions of visitor dollars, have flowed into Nampa and Canyon County. At the same time, former farmlands north and south of I-84 have sprouted new shopping complexes, hotels, automobile dealerships and other signs of urban expansion. Today, Nampa’s population stands at just over 81,000, nearly three times its 1990 number and almost identical to that of Bend, a 5½-hour drive to the west. Caldwell, six miles northwest of Nampa, has more than 46,000 people. See Idaho / C4

Idaho Center’s world-class Horse Park covers 110 acres with multiple arenas and nearly 600 horse stalls. Linked to the Idaho Equine Hospital, it is a staging area for the renowned Snake River Stampede, a historic rodeo held in Nampa every July.

“I Just Want My Pants Back,� MTV An aspiring actor and his friends fumble in love and work but succeed in being engaging, smartmouthed characters. Based on the David Rosen book of the same (wonderful) title, “Pants Back� is about hanging out, trading clever turns of phrase, citing modern cultural references and seeking a way out of 20-something ennui. Peter Vack is irresistible as Jason, whose trou disappeared with an intriguing new sex partner (Kelli Barrett) in the pilot. Since MTV veered from music videos, the network is finding success in scripted efforts. This one isn’t quite up to “Awkward,� the more soulful, female-centric halfhour that debuted last year. But it’s fun, a step above the unscripted “Jersey Shore� piffle it follows. “Happy Endings,� ABC May this ensemble of friends take years to settle into meaningful lives and loves.

“2 Broke Girls,� CBS The amazingly raunchy (for CBS) sitcom that specializes in racial stereotyping and sexual innuendo also boasts competent and likable actors in the title roles. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs are terrific sparring partners as Max and Caroline, the socioeconomic opposites thrown together because of Caroline’s economic misfortunes. The humor would be better if it weren’t so consistently drawn from forced naughty puns. And the scenes in the diner, where fun at the expense of foreigners is the focus, could be axed without losing the heart of the show. But Max speaks for a cynical generation that knows too well the dark side of the recession. “Portlandia,� IFC This half-hour gently knocks the town at the center of the universe for the self-consciously hip and eco-friendly. The IFC sketch series starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein offers biting observations on a proudly evolved generation, a breed of tree-hugging, underemployed American peculiar to the Pacific Northwest but with a slacker vibe detectable in coffehouses nationally.

A  & A  

Telltale burns prove smoker hasn’t cleaned up his act Dear Abby: “Dwayne,� my boyfriend of eight years, insists on smoking in his bedroom. In our last apartment he’d fall asleep with a lit cigarette and ended up burning holes in our couch, numerous blankets and pillows as well as the carpet. When we moved, Dwayne assured me he had stopped, but a month ago I noticed his blanket and mattress have burn holes and so does the carpet by his bed. We live together with our 6-year-old son and, needless to say, I’m scared to death Dwayne will burn this place down. I have talked to him about it numerous times. All he does is yell and say it won’t happen because cigarettes are “safer now.� I have discussed this with our landlord to no avail. I thought about calling social services, but I don’t want to get him in trouble. I could really use some good advice. — Scared for My Life in Milwaukee Dear Scared: Because Dwayne is unwilling to be more responsible, it’s time to consider your son’s safety and your own. Your boyfriend is not only addicted to tobacco, he is also misguided. If cigarettes were “safer now� there wouldn’t be burn holes in his bedding and the area surrounding where he sleeps. If moving isn’t feasible, at least make sure there are working smoke detectors in your apartment and an extra one outside Dwayne’s bedroom door. Frankly, it would be healthier for you and the boy if Dwayne didn’t smoke at all in your apartment because the Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen. To verify this, and get further information, contact the American Cancer Society (800-227-2345) or the American Heart Association (800-242-8721).

DEAR A B B Y Dear Abby: My husband died 13 years ago. Since then I have pretty much lost everything, except the grief. Recently it occurred to me that I have some photographs his siblings and nieces might like copies of. I don’t want them to know where I live — in a battered old trailer — because I’m ashamed. They are all wellto-do and never seemed to like me. No one has spoken to me since my husband’s death. I don’t want it to seem like I’m expecting anything in return because I’m not, nor do I want to see them socially. I know I don’t fit in with them. I’d just like to do something nice since we all loved him. From experience I think they’ll find some way to misinterpret or misunderstand the gesture. I’ll be hurt and, added to the depression and grief, I don’t think I could handle it. What do you advise? — Missing My Man in California Dear Missing Your Man: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. You have given me four valid reasons not to reach out to your husband’s family, the most important of which is that if you get another round of rejection from them it will crush you. That’s why I advise against it. Because they haven’t spoken to you or included you in 13 years, on top of the fact you never felt accepted in the first place (your words) — the healthy thing for you to do is to keep your distance. However, because in all this time you have been unable to finish your grieving process, I urge you to consider grief counseling. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Sunday, Feb. 19, 2012 By Jacq u eline Bigar You have a tendency to keep many of your opinions to yourself. You also might want a lot of time alone. You see situations in a far more dynamic manner than many people. During these periods, you become extroverted. Do be careful with your finances. Money could run through your fingers. If you are single, you will need someone quite diverse and independent to be able to swing with your moods. If you are attached, you realize that a loved one might be having trouble adjusting to your new self. AQUARIUS understands much more than you realize. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHHH Surround yourself with friends, and enjoy each of them. Be direct in how you deal with a particularly difficult person. If you can, treat those around you to a movie and/or a meal. You will see a sense of ease develop. Tonight: Going to the wee hours. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You might desire to play it low-key, but somehow you get tossed into the spotlight. You might need to head into work or spend some time with an elderly person in your life. Responsibilities call. Tonight: Surrounded by caring people. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Reach out for someone at a distance. If this person isn’t too far, you might opt to meet each other halfway. Your willingness to be vulnerable at this moment draws a loved one close. Tonight: Opt for a different invitation. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Deal with someone directly who you care about. You might be surprised by how responsive he or she might be. Join friends later in the day, or get together with a pal to watch a game. Don’t try to rein in your mind. You cannot help but drift. Tonight: Dinner for two. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Others come forward. Whether by phone, text or in person, you seem to receive invitation after invitation. Whatever you choose, you naturally radiate and remain content. Go along with another person’s plans rather than make suggestions as to how to improve him or her.

Tonight: The only answer is yes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You might want to slow down in the afternoon, after an active morning of touching base with those at a distance. A partner or loved one surprises you. You will like the end results. Tonight: Think “Monday.� LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You might think you are too tired, but events prove otherwise. Whether you are enjoying a child or off with a new friend, you re-energize and are all smiles. Walking into this person’s life delights you and, in some way, amazes you. Tonight: So what if it is Sunday? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You might want some time off from your routine, work and friends. Take today and make it yours. You will not be able to say “no� to a loved one. This person delights you in the way he or she tries to get your attention. Still, you might opt to stay close to home. Tonight: Be a couch potato. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Saying what you mean does not necessarily cause hurt feelings. Be responsible, claim your side of an issue and judge others less. Make time for a special sport or getting together with a family member. You might be happy taking a walk together. Tonight: Hanging out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Sometimes you get quite possessive over a loved one. If you are single, you might try to lose some of that trait and discover that a very exciting rapport develops between the two of you. Follow your intuition in a conversation. You will land well. Tonight: Dinner for two. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You wake up wondering why you have made such a big deal about getting together with a friend. Make a phone call and offer a surprise invitation. Share your good news and newfound confidence. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH You might surprise yourself by what you say or by a gesture you make. You seem to be picking up on a new inner sense. Take some time off from your friends and make this day for you. Think about it: What would you like to do? Tonight: Not far. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

A Curtiss P-40 aircraft stands at the heart of the Warhawk Air Museum, along with eight other planes, six historic automobiles and more than 130 cases of veterans’ memorabilia. The museum’s collection is a highly personal chronicle of wartime experiences.

A student walks past Sterry Hall on the Caldwell campus of the College of Idaho, built in 1910 and now on the National Register of Historic Places. Founded in 1891 as the state’s first college, it remains a small (1,000 students) but highly regarded institution.

Idaho Continued from C1 Unlike Boise, however, the two towns have not embraced urbanization. Fine dining and lively nightlife are minimal; performing arts centers, movie theaters and a historic roller rink draw more attention. Both towns maintain a strong Christian ethic; both have small church-associated universities — Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, the College of Idaho in Caldwell. Outdoorrecreation lovers, meanwhile, find that mountains and rivers are within a short drive.

Exploring Nampa The logical place to begin a look around Nampa is the old railway station, now the Nampa Train Depot Museum. Housing the offices of the Canyon County Historical Society, the Victorian station was built in 1903 to serve the Oregon Short Line. It was once slated for demolition, but citizens persuaded the Union Pacific to donate the station to the city for a museum. That was in 1976. Today, a $330,000 restoration project is under way to restore some of the building’s original flair and bring it to 21st-century standards. Visitors enter to the original Short Line ticket office, where doors lead to what once were separate waiting rooms for women and men. In the latter room, along with a gift shop and bookstore, exhibits include railroad memorabilia, two working train models and a fascinating collection of antique locks and keys. A highlight of the former women’s waiting room, along with period fashions, is a fully lit, multistory birdhouse built to resemble the late lamented Dewey Palace Hotel. The Dewey Palace met the fate that the depot avoided. Col. William H. Dewey, who made his fortune in nearby silver mines, opened the hotel on Jan. 1, 1903. The four-story, 43,000-square-foot hotel cost a quarter-million dollars to build, equivalent to about $6.5 million today. No one later wanted to invest in renovating the structure, and it was torn down in 1963. The site in the 1100 block of First Street South is now occupied by a bank and a tire shop. Facing it across 11th Avenue, on the exterior wall of a building overlooking a small park, is a handsome sculpture of running horses. Other than franchise properties near freeway exits, there

are few lodging options in Nampa today. I found the Super 8 to be an especially good value with prices under $50. Nampa has a handful of good downtown restaurants, the best of which is the Brick 29 Bistro on the lower level of the 1923 Masonic Temple. The lodge was recently remodeled; its ballroom is now a local event hall, while the restaurant and a European bakery have taken over the lower level. I had a fine dinner of roasted duck with cauliflower-Swiss cheese raviolis for only $17. Other worthy downtown Nampa dining spots are Copper Canyon, a traditional, long-established steakhouse; Darby’s Grill, a hip and casual bistro; and LeBaron’s Honker Cafe, a popular diner that opened in the late 1930s and moved to its present location in 1967. The Flying M CoffeeGarage is a coffeehouse that occupies a former commercial garage, with a stage for live music two or three nights a week. Elsewhere, the downtown area has a decidedly “yesteryear” feel that is enhanced by Nampa’s urban Historic Facade Restoration Project. On

First Street South, east of the old hotel site, rows of tall redbrick buildings, most of them built after a devastating 1909 fire, house mainly antique shops, used-book stores and low-budget cafes. Nampa’s Rollerdrome, a city standard since the 1930s that is still used for its original purpose, is on a nearby corner. North of downtown, the Hispanic Cultural Center of Idaho has a well-designed gallery of art and an adjoining gift shop where visitors may purchase a variety of hand-crafted items. Nearly 25 percent of the population of Nampa-Caldwell and surrounding Canyon County is of Latin heritage, and this facility does its best to promote the culture while providing social-service and educational resources. Nampa also has an excellent small museum at its municipal airport. The Warhawk Air Museum is as much a chronicle of personal wartime experience — of World War I and II, Korea and Vietnam — as it is an exhibit of aviation technology. On exhibit are nine aircraft, including two Curtiss P-40 fighters, along with six historic automobiles, two vintage Jeeps among them. More telling are over 130 display cases of well-curated memorabilia from hundreds of Idaho veterans.

Around Caldwell

A fully lit, multistory birdhouse, built to resemble the luxurious Dewey Palace Hotel, is a highlight of the Nampa Train Depot Museum. Once regarded among the finest hotels in the American West, the Dewey Palace survived for 60 years before it was razed in 1963.

Caldwell’s chief claim to fame is its university, the College of Idaho (COI). The state’s first institution of higher learning, it was established in 1891 by a Presbyterian minister. In its centennial year, the school was renamed Albertson College of Idaho to honor alumni benefactors Joe and Kathryn Albertson, founders of the Albertsons supermarket chain; it reverted to its original name in 2007. Just over 1,000 students attend the college, which offers 43 majors in 20 departments despite its small size. In Boone Science Hall are a natural-history museum, a gem and mineral collection,

and a planetarium. At the heart of downtown Caldwell is the new Indian Creek Park, a 6-acre greenbelt with foot bridges linking bike and pedestrian trails west of Kimball Avenue and south of Cleveland Boulevard. Work on the project is ongoing; when complete, it will have 3.2 miles of paths and maybe a Japanese garden. Pioneer Plaza, at 10th Avenue and Arthur Street, two blocks from the helpful chamber of commerce offices, is a good place to begin a creekside stroll. Not far from here, the Canyon County Historical Society operates Our Memories Indian Creek Museum, whose 20plus rooms offer displays on regional life in the first half of the 20th century. It’s only open a couple of afternoons a week, however, so it’s essential to call ahead. In Memorial Park, on Harrison Street near Kimball Avenue, the free Van Slyke Agricultural Museum features an open-air collection of historic farm machinery and two circa-1860 log cabins. Protected behind a chain-link fence that is locked through the winter months, it is open for visits daily in summer. About five miles south of both Caldwell and Nampa is Lake Lowell, created as a diversion reservoir in 1909 to provide irrigation water to a formerly sagebrush-covered plain. Recognizing that the seven-mile-long lake would quickly become an oasis for wildlife, President Theodore

Roosevelt promptly established the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge as one of the nation’s first refuges. Encompassing more than 10,500 acres, about 1,500 of them along the lakeshore, the refuge has recorded sightings of more than 200 species of birds, especially during peak fall and winter migration periods. A visitor center at the

south end of Indiana Avenue is a trailhead for a series of lakeside paths with a set of interpretive panels. Continued next page Private, vintage, ocean front getaway Newport, OR 1-800-755-5674

Wines and raptors For many Nampa-Caldwell visitors, the best reason to spend a day — especially during summer and early autumn — is to explore its wineries. Of 35 wineries in the state of Idaho, 60 percent are in the Snake River Valley, most of them within a few miles southwest of Caldwell. Some of the wineries — Hell’s Canyon, Koenig and Sawtooth among them — make vintages that have achieved critical acclaim in national wine competitions. But probably none is as highly regarded as Ste. Chapelle, which, perhaps not coincidentally, is Idaho’s oldest (1975) and largest (150,000 cases annually) winery. Ste. Chapelle is today the only Snake River winery open daily year-round; others have weekend or seasonal hours. Its handsome visitor center is a replica of Louis IX’s 13th-cen-

tury Saint’s Chapel in Paris, with vaulted ceilings and high, cathedral-like, stainedglass windows. At a cost of $5 for five tastes, visitors may sample any of 21 different vintages. I thought the Winemaker Series chardonnay, one of the higher-priced bottles at $10.95, was especially good. If you stop by in summer, you can enjoy the winery’s Sunday concert series. Idaho’s Snake River Canyon Scenic Byway runs practically past the front door of Ste. Chapelle, which is located just over the hill west of Lake Lowell. Allot 90 minutes for a drive south on Chicken Dinner Road (yes, that’s its real name) to Map Rock Road, connecting back north to Nampa via Idaho State Highway 45 (12th Avenue Road). The byway skirts Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area and offers gorgeous views across the Snake River Canyon from several overlooks. But

Idaho Center and Horse Park At the heart of modern Nampa, quite apart from ancient writings, is the Idaho Center and Horse Park, located just off I-84 at the city’s nearest point to Boise. Ever since it opened in June 1998, the arena has hosted major concerts, home-and-garden shows, monster-truck rallies and college basketball playoffs. Next month, the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships are coming to town. And then, of course, there’s the Snake River Stampede in mid-July. It’s fitting that the Stampede should now be staged in the Idaho Center, with its seating capacity of 12,000. Adjoining the Idaho Center is a world-class horse park that not only enhances the rodeo experience, but makes the center a lure for equestrians and other horse lovers from across the country. Covering 110 acres with multiple arenas and nearly 600 horse stalls, the Horse Park is a community riding center that hosts numerous shows — drawing as much as $13 million into Nampa city coffers in a single year. It adjoins the Idaho Equine Hospital, and boasts a wide range of additional facilities. It is easy to say that the horse is the face of modern Nampa. Reporter: janderson@

Those who have never been married might wonder why brides-to-be make such a big deal out of selecting a wedding dress. But analyze the components and you’ll begin to see why. A wedding dress is the most expensive garment a woman will ever buy and typically the only gown she will have custom-made for her. The current average price is about $1,289, according to Brides magazine, but gowns from $2,000 to $10,000 are more likely the tags you’ll find in designer bridal salons. All eyes will be on her, so she wants it to be perfect. The bride who dreams of a fairy-tale wedding after all the time and expense she’s putting into the process has a kindred spirit in designer Claire Pettibone. Her gowns range from the ethereal to sensual, full and floaty to body-hugging sheaths. Pettibone says that there have been a lot of changes in the industry since she began designing 18 years ago. “There are fewer rules and more of an acceptance of the individual,� she says. “If a traditional wedding is right for you, fine, but

there’s a knowledge that it’s a personal thing.� Her message is to make the process fun and to fully indulge fantasies of what you want to look like on the big day. That said, there are some practicalities to wedding-dress shopping. Her advice: • Be careful about whom you choose to come with you when you try on gowns. Don’t select a dress based on what others say about it; you have to love it. • Have an idea of what type of dress you want so you won’t be overwhelmed by the selection. Depending on your personal style and they type of wedding you’re having, you should be able to narrow it down to a dress that is formal or informal, ultra-romantic or more modern. • Don’t overdo it. Trying on any more than six to eight wedding dresses in a single store can wear you down. After the first few, you’ll have an idea of what you like, and what flatters you. The store’s bridal consultant should be able to pick up on that, as well as direct you to dresses that fit your requirements.

By Jay Mathews The Washington Post

Strangers often ask me how to pick a good school. They are transferring into an area or moving from one local neighborhood with struggling schools to a place they hope will be better. Choosing a school is often as much about taste as judgment (see item 9 below). Here is a list of what a parent can do to get the best sense of the differences among the various places they might send their children. 1. Attend a school’s PTA meeting before you enroll. Nobody is going to toss you out. At these meetings, said Montgomery County, Md., parent John Hoven, “meet as many parents as you can, get phone numbers, call them later and ask who else would be good to talk to.” If you think the school is for you, go ahead, jump the gun and “become an active, participating member of the PTA” even if you are not yet a resident, he said. The parents of the students already enrolled will be grateful for your participation and for your endorsement of their own choice of school. 2. Talk to the principal. I think you need at least a halfhour with the principal to get a good sense of the school. Some principals complain that they don’t have enough time to see every prospective parent. But only a few very smart parents are going to seek an interview. Be one of them. “Ask about the curriculum, the school’s goals for kids’ learning, and how they try to attain them,” said Brookings Institution scholar Tom Loveless. “If one-sizefits-all doesn’t fit your child for some specific reason,” Hoven said, the principal might have specialists at hand who can fill that need. 3. Observe a class. This is a controversial suggestion that in the past I didn’t think would work well. Parents wouldn’t have time for it or know what to look for. Then I encountered several parents who convinced me they would get much from sitting quietly in a class for at least an hour. In many cases, schools have barred the practice, calling it too disruptive. Loveless said he likes the idea. “The kids should look comfortable and engaged, not necessarily

I think you need at least a half-hour with the principal to get a good sense of the school. Some principals complain that they don’t have enough time to see every prospective parent. But only a few very smart parents are going to seek an interview. Be one of them. quiet, but working and productive,” he said. 4. Experience the school corridors and the neighborhood. Schools often provide tours even if they don’t let you spend much time in class. Cedric Sheridan, a Prince George’s County, Md., parent, said his wife took that opportunity to “observe how orderly, how clean and how engaged the school as a setting seemed to be. She would take stock of how the administration received her, and she noted the behavior of the students and the staff and faculty responses to the students.” The Sheridans went one unusual step further: “We would drive by the schools during school and non-school hours to see what the local environment was like, to see if we would be comfortable with our children being there.” Prepare for variety. G.F. Brandenburg, who is a District of Columbia parent, a former D.C. teacher and blogger, said he has visited schools “where sheer chaos reigns, places where mostly regimented boredom reigns, and places where there appears to be at least a reasonable amount of learning.” Loveless, a former teacher, recommended checking out “the hallways during breaks and playgrounds during recess. They should look like controlled chaos, not overly regimented but not dangerous either.” 5. Don’t worry if you hear that a middle school has problems. There is something disturbing to many people about the coming-into-puber-

ty group that attends middle schools and the way they are organized. I expected criticism of middle schools in communities where all schools struggled. But when I was advised by parents-in-the-know that Scarsdale Middle School, in one of the nation’s wealthiest villages, and Sidwell Friends (D.C.) Middle School, one of the most selective private schools, had flaws, I concluded that wise parents should ignore the standard critique of the local middle school unless there is other data confirming the concern. 6. Research Web sites and blogs for parents in your new neighborhood. Search for the district name or the name of the state and “school report card” to get the best data. 7. Don’t put too much weight on demographics. Sheridan said he and his wife thought a good mix of ethnicities and income levels was important. College-educated parents in D.C. area counties, for example, find their children thriving in schools in which many children are poor. That is because the quality of teaching in those districts is very high. 8. Check the local high school ratings on The Washington Post High School Challenge at washington They are based on participation in challenging courses and tests, such as Advanced Placement. That is only one aspect of schooling, but it provides the most useful comparisons across state and district lines of how much your child will be stretched. Too many high schools see it as their duty to get students to graduation but worry that demanding too much will be too stressful, particularly for average kids. If you have an average kid who wants to go to college, beware of such schools. 9. Trust your instincts. After consulting all possible sources, Brandenburg said, “take all of their answers with a lot of salt. Nobody is a better expert than you are.” The neighbors might love the school. It might be No. 1 on The Post’s challenge list. But if you don’t like it, look elsewhere. Your children will not adjust well to a school about which you have doubts.

CNN severs ties with King By Joe Flint Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — CNN and Larry King are going their separate ways. Though King gave up his daily primetime talk show on CNN in December 2010, he still had a deal for several spe- King cials. The last of those — “A Larry King Special: Dinner With the Kings” — aired in December. In a statement Wednesday, CNN said it had “the greatest respect for Larry,” and

Moore Continued from C1 With Moore and Nelson serving as its editors, the book collects the wisdom of many thinkers, including writers, religious leaders, activists, political figures and naturalists. Among the contributors are President Barack Obama, the Dalai Lama and poet Wendell Berry, to name just a few. Moore will discuss the subject of ethics and climate change at a Science Pub talk Tuesday in Bend. Sponsored by Oregon State UniversityCascades, monthly Science Pubs feature researchers from OSU who speak about their work in a casual, sudsy environment. Tuesday’s Science Pub will be held at McMenamins Old St. Francis School (see “If you go”).

wished him “the best of luck with his new endeavors.” King added that he has nothing but love for CNN. King’s staff of four will likely be let go from CNN but may be able to reapply for new jobs at the network. King, 78, was replaced by British media personality Piers Morgan. Though Morgan’s ratings have not been blockbuster, he has done better than King was doing at the end of his run in attracting viewers in the 25-

54 demographic that CNN targets. The decision by CNN to discontinue King’s specials brings to an end a relationship that lasted more than 25 years. In that last special, King told his guests, including Conan O’Brien, Tyra Banks, Shaquille O’Neal and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, that he wanted to be frozen after he died. “I want to be frozen on the hope that they’ll find whatever I died of and bring me back,” King said.

The free event, which requires reservations, is already near capacity, according to Christine Coffin, director of communications and outreach at OSU-Cascades. Unlike political pundits, the thinkers Moore and Nelson contacted had no reservations when it came to the rights and wrongs of dealing with climate change, Moore said. “Perhaps if we had asked (only) political leaders; perhaps if we had asked corporate (spokespeople), we’d have gotten a different set of answers. We were going after people who are moral thought leaders. There was not that kind of division.” The variety of voices heard in “Moral Ground” means, Moore said, “that no matter what world view you bring to the question, here’s an argument that will speak to you.

So we find a real power in the unity of moral voices (compared to) the cacophony of political voices.” Since the book’s publication, she and Nelson have traveled at home and abroad conducting town hall meetings based on the essays. “It’s not enough to ask a hundred moral leaders of global stature. We need this conversation to be happening everywhere, and we need to hear from everybody,” she said. “So I’m real eager to have this conversation in Bend. We can ask the same question of a different group of people: What’s the basis of our obligation to act? What does that call us to do, and how can we find the joy and the hope and new ideas that will take us forward?” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,





Qu een of self-portraits, subject of a retrospective By Carol Vogel New York Times News Service

Cindy Sherman was looking for inspiration at the Spence Chapin Thrift Shop in New York last month when she eyed a satin wedding dress. “It’s Arnold Scaasi,” the saleswoman said, as Sherman made a beeline for the dress. Unzipping the back, the clerk showed off a row of labels, one with the year it was made — 1992 — and another with the name of the bride-to-be. “It has never been worn,” she added. As the story goes, when the gown was finished, the bride decided she didn’t like it. Sherman appeared skeptical. Is this really what happened, or is the story just the cover for a jilted bride? One begged to know more. That tantalizing sense of mystery and uneasiness are similar emotions viewers feel when they see one of Sherman’s elliptical photographs. Over the course of her remarkable 35-year career, she has transformed herself into hundreds of personas: the movie star, the valley girl, the angry housewife, the frustrated socialite, the Renaissance courtesan, the menacing clown, even the Roman god Bacchus. Some are closely cropped images; in others she is set against a backdrop that, as Sherman describes it, “are clues that tell a story.” “None of the characters are me,” she explained, sipping a soda at a cafe near the shop that afternoon. “They’re everything but me. If it seems too close to me, it’s rejected.” On this afternoon Sherman, 58, had bicycled from her apartment to discuss her landmark retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, which opens next Sunday and includes more than 170 photographs. Wearing no makeup, with leggings and sneakers and a tweed hat that carefully concealed her crash helmet, she looked inconspicuous, hardly the celebrated artist whose fans include Lady Gaga; Elton John, who collects her work; and Madonna, who sponsored a show of Sherman’s “Untitled Film Stills” at the Museum of Modern Art in 1997.

‘Most influential’ Even as she prepares for her retrospective — her first in the United States in nearly 14 years — she is pushing herself to try something new. Lately she’s been thinking about creating a family portrait where she would play every member. “She’s undoubtedly one of the most influential artists of our time,” said Eva Respini, associate curator of photography at MoMA, who has spent the last two years organizing Sherman’s retrospective. “She is always addressing issues at the heart of our visual culture. In this world of celebrity makeovers, reality TV and YouTube, here is an artist whose different modes of representation seem truer now than when they were made.” Philippe Segalot, a Manhattan dealer who bought his first work by Sherman for his own collection in the ’80s, said: “I’ve always been amazed how she could take what seems like such a simple idea and keep reinventing it. Cindy is one of the few artists who has been consistently great throughout her entire career.” Raised in the 1950s, among the first artists to come of age in the era of television and mass media, Sherman is part of the “pictures generation,” making works that combine Pop and Conceptualism. She was first noticed in the ’70s thanks to her “Untitled Film Stills,” fictional portraits inspired by movies and girlie magazines. She and artists like Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine, Louise Lawler and Laurie Simmons were examining female archetypes and gender issues in a way no one had before. But it wasn’t until 1981, when she made her “Centerfolds,” a series of portraits inspired by photographs in Playboy — but with the women clothed and conveying a complicated range of emotions — that her career really took off. By 1982 Sherman was the subject of an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and included in Documenta 7 in Kassel, Germany, as well as the Venice Biennale. Five years later she had a traveling retrospective that

This Cindy Sherman portrait from 2007-8 will be in a new show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York spanning her 35-year career. Sherman’s retrospective at MoMA opens Feb. 26 and will include more then 170 photographs. Cindy Sherman in a rare pose as herself.

was at the Whitney Museum of American Art. And in 1995 she received a MacArthur grant. Her “Untitled Film Stills,” for which she purposely developed the film in hotter-than-normal chemicals to make them look cracked, cheap and grainy, like promotional giveaways, are now considered landmarks of late20th-century art. (In 1995 MoMA purchased a set for a reported $1 million, an enormous price at the time.) But scores of other images from her long career have endured too, despite the proliferation of digital photography and Photoshop. Commercially she is often credited with taking photography out of a ghetto and putting it on the same firm fine-art

footing as painting and sculpture. In May 2011 Segalot, bidding on behalf of a client, bought a 1981 image in which she posed as a teenage girl. For six months it was the most expensive photograph sold at

auction, bringing $3.9 million at Christie’s. Sherman started painting in college at the State University of Buffalo. “I was good at copying things, but I didn’t really have ideas of what I wanted to do with painting,” she said. “That was when I thought, ‘Why am I wasting my time elaborately copying things when I could use a camera?’ ” One of her first assignments in a photography class was to confront something that was hard for her. “I took a series of myself naked in front of the camera,” she said. “I did a couple of these series, and that was when I started using myself, but at the same time, not as an art practice, just for therapy or something. I would transform my face with makeup into various characters just to pass the time.” She was dating the artist Robert Longo, and he suggested that she document herself in these costumes. And after the two moved to New York in 1977, Sherman





would often show up places in costume. On and off for more than a decade, starting in 1985, she removed herself from her pictures. One series depicts macabre still lifes of vomit, blood and moldy food; another captures anatomically correct medical body parts in bizarre poses. She has said she created many of these tougher images during difficult periods in her life, like when she was angry about several male artists whose careers seemed to take off more easily than hers, or when she was in the middle of a divorce from the French video artist Michel Auder, ending their 15-year marriage. None of these images have been as commercially successful as her “Untitled Film Stills,” or the “history portraits.” The history series (1989-90) were shots of her dressed as characters from old masters like Titian, Holbein and Caravaggio.

Photoshop In the MoMA show there will be images that are new to American audiences in which she has digitally altered her face. “I didn’t use any makeup,” she said. “It was all slight subtle changes with Photoshop to make each character look different.” In some her eyes are bigger and spread apart; in others she has reshaped her chin or plumped her cheeks. “It’s horrifying how easy it is to make changes,” she said.

Cindy Sherman poses in character for another self-portrait.

Recently she has been thinking big, producing murals printed on a kind of contact paper. She got the idea, she said, after seeing how “a number of male artists would get invited to do a show somewhere, and they’d just fill up an entire wall of painting that is just this gigantic thing.” She added: “I was thinking how pretentious that is. It made me realize not too many women artists think that way.” As visitors get off the escalator at MoMA, they will be enveloped in 8-foot-tall images of Sherman standing amid a bucolic black-and-white setting that she shot in Central Park. “It’s like walking into Cindyland,” Respini said on a recent afternoon as she was overseeing workers applying the contact paper to the museum’s walls. There Sherman emerges in yet another mind-boggling array of characters: a circus juggler; a woman clad in a body suit with pointy bosoms; an aging woman in a long red dress. “You think you may know them,” Respini said. “But in fact the more you look at them, the more complex and darker they seem. The same could be said of Cindy. How can such a mild-mannered, nice woman have such a wicked imagination that keeps inventing these fantastical characters over and over again?”

MLB Cardinals say they are ready JUPITER, Fla. — So long, Albert Pujols. Happy trails, Tony La Russa. Timeout, Dave Duncan. The World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals have had plenty of upheaval. Now they enter spring training looking for a new No. 3 hitter and breaking in a rookie manager and pitching coach. Time for the newcomers to step forward. Before meeting with reporters, just steps from the closest of six practice fields at Roger Dean Stadium, Mike Matheny jokingly checked to make sure this was where La Russa usually held court for 16 springs. Armed with a cup of coffee instead of a facemask and shin guards, the former fourtime Gold Glove catcher confessed to feeling a bit strange. “Is this the spot?” Matheny said. Two equipment bags topped by six boxes of shoes was stacked in front of Matt Holliday’s locker stall, which used to be Pujols’ spot. As for Pujols’ decision in December to take a 10-year, $254 million free-agent deal with the Angels after 11 Hall of Fame trajectory seasons with the team that drafted him? Old news. Pujols’ name never even came up during Matheny’s wide-ranging 18-minute opening media session. “It’s going to be different,” pitcher Kyle Lohse said. “But it’s a business and we have 25 other guys who’ll pull together to win as many games as we can. That’s the way it goes. And nobody’s going to feel sorry for us.”

Vonn clinches downhill title KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Lindsey Vonn usually likes to clinch her titles with victories. So while she was pleased to secure her fifth consecutive World Cup downhill crown Saturday, she was also upset she didn’t win the race because of what she said was a bad equipment choice. Instead, German rival and friend Maria HoeflRiesch won the official downhill test on the 2014 Sochi Olympics course, Elizabeth Goergl of Austria finished second and Vonn settled for third. “I’ve gone on the same race skis all season and we decided to go on a different pair today and I think maybe that was the wrong choice,” Vonn said. “I think my normal race boards are probably a little bit faster. But it’s already passed, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.” Vonn is in position to clinch another title in today’s super-combined, but she’ll have to wait two years for another downhill here — when she’ll be defending her gold medal won at the 2010 Vancouver Games. — The Associated Press

Storm senior Suzy Foster placed second in the 200-yard individual medley and 100 butterfly and junior Madi Brewer posted runner-up finishes in the 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke to propel Summit to the 2012 girls 5A title. Sherwood placed second behind the Storm with 42 points, Bend High finished third with 36 points and Crescent Valley came in fourth with 33 points. The Storm swept the 5A meet as the Summit boys rebounded from a fifth-place finish last year to win their seventh state title in 10 years. “This has been 11 years in the making,” Storm coach Amy Halligan said about her program’s two team titles. “There’s been a lot of gray hairs in the process.” Summit’s 200 medley and 400 freestyle relay teams added wins as the Storm became the first girls swim program from Bend to win a state swimming championship since Mountain View’s title run in 2001. “We made history,” Foster said about adding a girls state swim title to Summit High’s crowded trophy case. “It’s just such an honor to be a part of it.” Slight favorites on paper heading into the two-day event, the Storm opened the meet with a convincing victory in the 200-yard medley relay. Summit’s team of Madi Brewer, Jackie Nonweiler, Sydney Goodman and Abby Sorlie finished the race in 1 minute, 52.14 seconds, more than two seconds faster than runner-up Hood River Valley (1:54.75).

Prep sports • Summit athletes compete in indoor track and field event: A cadre of Summit track and field athletes competing as the Central Oregon Track Club participated in the Simplot Games at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena on Thursday and Friday in Pocatello, Idaho. Storm athlete Cole Thomas set a personal best in the men’s 60-meter dash final, finishing seventh overall in 7.01 seconds. In the 400 race, Michael Wilson finished eighth in 51.22 seconds for a personal best of his own. Sarah Taylor and Lucinda Howard both made the finals of the women’s high jump, finishing in a tie for ninth and a tie for 13th places, respectively. Taylor cleared 5 feet, 4 inches; Howard cleared 5-2. The Central Oregon Track Club men’s 4x200m relay team took fifth place (1:32.68) in a 12-team final.

Baseball • Beavs get win over Santa Barbara, second game to continue today: The Oregon State baseball team won the first game of a doubleheader, 3-2, in eight innings Saturday at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium in Santa Barbara, Calif., before game two was delayed due to darkness. The teams will pick up the second game of the doubleheader today at 11:30 a.m. PST. It will be started in the 10th inning with the Beavers at bat and the score tied at 12. The Beavers took game one, an extra-inning affair, that went eight innings as the teams had agreed to play seven prior to the doubleheader. OSU’s Tyler Smith singled home John Tommasini from second with one out in the top of the eighth. Smith led OSU with two of the team’s four hits.

Winter sports • Hirscher wins World Cup GS: Marchel Hirscher took advantage of a mistake by rival Ted Ligety to win a World Cup giant slalom Saturday in Bulgaria and overtake the American for first place in the discipline standings. Ligety led after the first run but dropped out of contention in the second run with a mistake in the upper part of the slope and placed last of the 27 finishers. Hirscher, who began the second run trailing Ligety by 0.16 seconds, clinched the victory with a combined time of 2 minutes, 25.35 seconds. Italy’s Massimiliano Blardone came in second with a combined time of 2:26.74, ahead of Austria’s Marcel Mathis, 0.86 off the lead. • Kearney wins World Cup moguls to extend streak: American mogul skier Hannah Kearney won her 16th straight World Cup moguls event Saturday, extending a record winning streak that began in January 2011 by edging Canada’s Audrey Robichaud in the final. Kearney broke downhill great Ingemar Stenmark’s all-discipline record last Sunday for most consecutive FIS World Cup victories. • Canada’s Humphries wins gold at bobsled worlds: Canada’s Kaillie Humphries has won the women’s gold medal at the Bobsled World Championships in Lake Placid, N.Y. The reigning Olympic champion and brakewoman Jennifer Ciochetti finished the competition on Saturday night at Mount Van Hoevenberg with an aggregate four-run time of 3 minutes, 48.57 seconds. Elana Meyers and Katie Eberling, in their first worlds for the United States, took the bronze.

Boxing • Klitschko keeps title: Vitali Klitschko unanimously outpointed British challenger Dereck Chisora on Saturday to keep the WBC heavyweight title in Munich. Chisora found little support from the sellout crowd of 12,500 after his slap on Klitschko at the weigh-in Friday, and ensured the ill-feeling continued when he spat in the 40-year-old’s face as the champion’s record was being called out. The judges scored it 118-110, 118-110 and 119-111. Klitschko improved his record to 44-2 with the 10th successful defense of the title he won from Corrie Sanders in 2004. • Three women win boxing trials: Marlen Esparza captured the flyweight title with a 32-17 victory over Tyrieshia Douglas, and Queen Underwood beat Mikaela Mayer 22-19 to win the lightweight division at the first U.S. Olympic team trials for women’s boxing. Claressa Shields ended the trials with a 23-18 victory over Tika Hemingway at the Pend Oreille Pavilion in the Northern Quest resort-casino just outside Spokane, Wash.

Motor sports • Kyle Busch edges Stewart to win Shootout: Kyle Busch used a last-gasp pass of defending NASCAR champion Tony Stewart to grab the first win of the 2012 season at Daytona Beach, Fla. Busch pushed Stewart to the lead on the last lap of Saturday night’s exhibition Budweiser Shootout. Then Busch ducked to the outside of Stewart as they closed in on the finish line and beat him by .013 seconds to the checkered flag. Busch used two brilliant saves earlier in the race to remain in contention for the win. • Gray tops Funny Car field: Johnny Gray took the No. 1 spot in Funny Car qualifying Saturday in the NHRA Arizona Nationals at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Ariz. Shawn Langdon led the Top Fuel field and Mike Edwards topped the Pro Stock class in the second of 23 races in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing season.

Tennis • Raonic tops Harrison to advance to SAP Open final: Defending champion Milos Raonic ripped 20 aces to reach his second straight SAP Open final Saturday, beating Ryan Harrison 7-6 (4), 6-2 in San Jose, Calif. The match took only 78 minutes, with Harrison unable to solve the 6-foot-5 Canadian’s punishing, powerful serve in the comfortable conditions of an indoor arena. Raonic will play Uzbekistan’s Denin Istomin — who upset Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals — today.

Cal stays tied atop Pac-12 after 77-63 victory over Oregon State The Associated Press BERKELEY, Calif. — There were 38 seconds left to play on Saturday night when California seniors Jorge Gutierrez and Harper Kamp came out of the game, with the Bears leading Oregon State by 14 points. A standing ovation never sounded so sweet. Gutierrez scored 17 points and Kamp added 13 on Senior Night, leading the Bears to a 77-63 victory over Oregon State to keep them tied for first place in the Pac12 with Washington. “I was coming out and I realized it was over,” Kamp said. “Coach gave me a high five. I realized that was it. I was just honored to come out that way. To get that standing ‘O,’ it meant a lot. It was so much fun today.” Freshman David Kravish scored a career-high 17 points, while Justin Cobbs had 10 points and a career-high 13 assists for the Bears (22-6, 12-3). Allen Crabbe added 16 points. Devon Collier and Roberto Nelson had 14 points each and Angus Brandt 11 for Oregon State (15-12, 5-10). Jared Cunningham, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, had 10 points. Gutierrez had eight rebounds and Kamp seven in what was likely their final Cal home game. The Bears finish the regular season with three road games, against Utah, Colorado and Stanford, then head to the Pac-12 Tournament. Washington finishes with road games at Washington State, USC and UCLA. “It looks like Washington’s not giving in at all,” Cal coach Mike Montgomery said. “They’ve got three road games. We’ve got three road games. You could argue all you want who’s got a tougher road. I don’t know. But it’s really kind of up to us to do our job and take care of our business and not worry so much about what they do.” After losing a 12-point first-half lead and trailing 34-32 at halftime, Cal opened the second half with a 27-13 run to build a 59-47 lead with 9:25 remaining. Kamp and Gutierrez had eight points each during the surge. After Crabbe drilled a three-point shot, Gutierrez put the Bears up 57-47 with a three-point play. Then Gutierrez scored inside, bumping Cal’s lead to 12 points. Oregon State cut Cal’s lead to 62-56, but the Bears went on a 7-2 run to regain control. “I was really disappointed,” Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said. “We knew it was going to be a high intensity game because it was Senior Day, and I didn’t think we came out with the effort that matched their intensity. We fought our way back, and then just got back into the same cycle. “It was the guys at the end of the bench that brought us back. I put the starting guys back in; your best players have to help you in situations like that.”

Coyotes beat Stars to make move in Pacific Division The Associated Press GLENDALE, Ariz. — Radim Vrbata took the pass from behind the net and drifted around the crease, in no hurry to shoot. Just as it seemed his window of opportunity was about to close, Vrbata lifted a shot over the sprawled-out goalie, earning another gamewinning goal. When it’s going this good, there’s no need to rush. Vrbata scored his career-high 28th goal 1:15 into overtime, Mike Smith stopped 30 shots, and the Phoenix Coyotes earned a point in their eighth straight game with a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night. “I don’t know what to say about it,” Vrbata said after his 10th game-winner of the season. “Lately, it seems like those are important goals. That’s the way I’ve been able to help the team, so I’m happy with it.” Phoenix has surged up the standings since the All-Star break, moving within two points of Pacific Division-leading San Jose after its latest win. The Coyotes have done it behind superb goaltending, opportunistic scoring, and contributions from unexpected places.

Mikkel Boedker gave Phoenix a lift early against Dallas, scoring his first goal in 21 games. Smith was steady throughout, withstanding a flurry of shots in the third period after having a long scoreless streak end. Ray Whitney, having a superb season at 39, set up the game-winner by snatching the puck from unsuspecting defenseman Mark Fistric behind the Stars’ net. Vrbata finished it off by waiting for goalie Kari Lehtonen to commit before lifting a shot just under the crossbar. “It’s huge points for us against a team that’s below us in the standings,” Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. “But we’ve got to find a way to be better than we were.” The Stars felt as though they let one get away. Playing without leading scorer Jamie Benn (left knee laceration), Dallas overcame Boedker’s first-period goal to tie it behind Michael Ryder’s 22nd goal in the second. Lehtonen was superb at times, turning away 31 shots. The Stars picked up the intensity when they needed to, spending a good chunk of the third period in Phoenix’s end. Good, but not good enough,

leaving Dallas three points out of eighth in the Western Conference. “We played hard, but we need results,” Stars coach Glen Gulutzan said. “It’s a results-based business and we need results. We need to capitalize, and we can’t make a mistake at the end to give a point away.” After a mediocre first half of the season, the Coyotes have made another February charge. Phoenix had a winning streak of at least five games after the All-Star break in each of the past three seasons.

Sisters boys roll to nonconference victory Bulletin staff report SISTERS — Playing in its third game in five days, Sisters took care of nonconference opponent Riverside of Boardman early, rolling to a 36-17 halftime lead en route to a 5540 boys basketball victory on Saturday night. “Our defensive pressure was pretty solid,” Outlaws coach Rand Runco said. “We jumped on them in the first half pretty hard.” Class 4A Sisters improved its record to 21-3 with the win over the Class 3A Pirates, its 15th consecutive victory. The Outlaws wrapped up a perfect 10-0 season in the Class 4A Sky-Em League on Friday. Eli Harrison led the way for Sisters with 17 points and 10 rebounds. John Erickson added 11 points and five steals, while Chase Goff finished with 10 points for the Outlaws.

The Bend girls 200-yard freestyle relay team reacts to a close finish in their race on Saturday night in Gresham; the squad finished second in the race.

Continued from D1 With finalists in 10 of Saturday’s 11 events, the Storm recorded points upon points, clinching the state title before the final event of the day, the 400 freestyle relay. “Our freshman put us over the hump,” Halligan said. “Before we’ve always been one or two girls away.” Freshman Mackenzie Halligan, Amy’s daughter, came up huge at her first state meet, contributing on the Storm’s winning 400 freestyle relay team as well as turning in a runner-up finish in the 500 freestyle and a third-place swim in the 200 freestyle. Fellow freshman Sydney Goodman added to Summit’s depth by swimming on the Storm’s victorious 200 medley relay squad. The Lava Bears, who placed

sixth at state a year ago, showed signs of a program on the rise with their thirdplace trophy. Freshmen Bella Wiener and Jennifer Robeson teamed with junior Brooke Miller and senior Jennifer Tornay — they were the only four Bend girls in Saturday’s finals — to take second in the 200 freestyle relay and third in the 400 freestyle relay race. Individually, Wiener placed second in the 50 freestyle and third in the 100 free, and Robeson turned in a fifth-place effort in the 500 free and a fifth-place finish in the 200 freestyle. “The girls were amazing today,” Bend coach Elizabeth Meskill said. Mountain View placed 13th at the 5A championships with six points. Sophomore Phoebe Weedman placed fourth in the 500 freestyle, highlighting the Cougars’ state meet. At the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A

state championships, which were also at Mt. Hood Community College, Madras brought home its first state swimming trophy with a third-place finish. Junior Elizabeth Armitage led the Buffs by placing second in the 100 freestyle and third in the 50 free. Freshman Sophie Gemelas added a runner-up effort in the 100 breaststroke and fourth-place finish in the 100 butterfly. Klamath Falls’ Henley High won the 4A/3A/2A/1A girls championship with 58 points, and was followed by La Grande (44 points), Madras (32) and North Bend (31). In the Class 6A championships, Redmond’s Rachel Haney was the lone Central Oregon girls participant Saturday. Haney placed eighth in the 100 backstroke after finishing second in the “B” final. — Reporter: 541-383-0305,

Boys Continued from D1 The 6-foot-6-inch Brewer won both the 50- and 100yard freestyle races during the second and final day of the state swim meet. Brewer set new 5A state records in each event — 21.09 seconds in the 50 freestyle and 46.09 in the 100 free — obliterating the 100 freestyle mark by almost half a second. “He’s a man-child,” Storm coach Amy Halligan said about Brewer. “He’s only 15 (years old), but he’s got so much composure.” Brewer’s wins came headto-head against Bend High senior Doug Steinhauff, the 2011 5A 100 freestyle state champion. The two Central Oregon swimmers have pushed each other all season, including an exciting district meet in which Brewer won the 100 free and Steinhauff came out ahead in the 50 freestyle. Steinhauff finished second in the 100 freestyle and third in the 50 free Saturday while leading Bend to an eighth-place team finish. “Just getting to race Doug has been the most exciting thing for me,” said Brewer, who was named the 5A boys swimmer of the meet. “He’s a great kid and a great swimmer.” The Storm also received big points from its 200 medley and 400 freestyle relay squads which placed second, and its 200 freestyle relay squad which turned in a third-place finish.

Summit’s Tommy Brewer edged Bend’s Doug Steinhauff, center (third place) in a very close 50-yard freestyle event on Saturday night at the Class 5A state swimming championships in Gresham.

mit junior Aidan Soles, who took a year off from high school swimming last year, added a fourth-place effort in the 500 freestyle and 100 breaststroke and Connor Brenda placed third in the 100 backstroke. Mountain View placed sixth at the 5A championships with 18 points. Sophomore Brandon Deckard finished second in the 200 individual medley and 500 freestyle and swam legs on the Cougars’ 200 medley relay squad, which placed third. Brewer’s rival and friend, Steinhauff, ended his prep career with two top-three finishes at state. The Lava Bear

standout also helped Bend High to a fourth-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay. Steinhauff and fellow seniors Mitchell McGinnis, William O’Connell and Justin Short just missed out on a state title in the 200 freestyle relay. The Lava Bears turned in the top time of the 5A finals but were disqualified after the race when a Bend swimmer was ruled to have left the blocks early. “These seniors raised the bar,” Lava Bear coach Elizabeth Meskill said. “They’ve been the foundation of this program for four years. It’s going to be sad to see them go.”

In the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state meet, Madras sophomore Ian Goodwin led the White Buffaloes by finishing second in the 500 freestyle and fourth in the 200 individual medley. The Buffs ended the afternoon meet, which

was also held at Mt. Hood Community College, in sixth place with 25 points. Cottage Grove won the 4A/3A/2A/1A meet with 60 points. In Saturday morning’s Class 6A championships, Redmond junior Matthew Carpenter placed third in the 500 freestyle.

Blazers back on track at home, beat Hawks The Associated Press PORTLAND — A little “Raymond Time” did the trick for Trail Blazers guard Raymond Felton. Felton had 14 points and eight assists in Portland’s 97-77 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night, breaking out of a personal slump that had thrown his starting role into question. He failed to score in Portland’s previous game, a 74-71 loss to the Clippers in which the Blazers squandered an 18-point, third-quarter advantage. He had been averaging just 9.9 points, well off his average of 15.5 last season with New York and Denver. Felton said he had been working with a shooting coach, but more importantly, he took some time to himself — dubbed “Raymond Time” — to take a hard look at what was happening. The introspection paid off against the Hawks, and Felton was instrumental in helping the Blazers snap a four-game home losing streak. “It felt good,” he said. “And I think everybody else was happy with it as well.” LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds in his return from a left ankle injury, was among those pleased with Felton’s apparent breakthrough. “(He) controlled the game from start to finish, made shots, got guys easy shots,” Aldridge said. “I thought he showed us who he is and what he can do.” Nicolas Batum had 22 points for Portland, which hasn’t lost five straight at home since the 2005-06 season. Joe Johnson had 19 points for Atlanta, which came into the game with a six-game winning streak over the Blazers. Josh Smith added 14 points and 10 rebounds in the Hawks’ sixth loss in their last nine games. “The bounces weren’t going our way, but

NBA ROUNDUP that’s when we have to be a little more desperate,” Smith said. “They were making shots early on. Then we were able to play some good defense, but we gave up some long rebounds.” Aldridge, Portland’s top scorer who will play in his first All-Star game next weekend, sprained his left ankle Tuesday night in a loss at home to Washington. He started and hit his first four shots and added three assists in the first 10 minutes. The Blazers were motivated from the start and took a 24-17 lead on Batum’s put-back layup. Gerald Wallace extended the lead to 12 at 31-19 with a three-pointer. Felton capped the first half with a running jumper that made it 52-37 at the break. Atlanta made just three field goals in the second quarter to help out Portland.

Chris Carlson / The Associated Press

Phil Mickelson watches his drive on the second hole during the third round of the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles on Saturday.

elson graciously showed him the nuances of the TPC Sawgrass, until they reached the last green and the cash was on the line. Mickelson told Bradley and Brendan Steele to get out their wallets, and then he poured in a putt. “He’s a very competitive guy, but he’s very helpful at the same time,” Bradley said. “I thank him for his advice and help. But he’s going to try to beat me tomorrow, and I’m going to have to try to do the same.” Even so, this is hardly a two-man race at Riviera. Mickelson and Bradley were at 7-under 206, one shot ahead of Pat Perez (70), Jonathan Byrd (69) and Bryce Molder (66). Mickelson wasn’t the only player on a wild ride along the fabled course off Sunset Boulevard. Molder one-putted the last eight greens, five of them for par. Perez three-putted from 10 feet on No. 3, and on the next hole took four putts from 60 feet on the fringe, the last three from inside 5 feet. Byrd took only 21 putts in 18 holes, courtesy of only hitting six greens in regulation. “My short game was marvelous,” Byrd said. Defending champion Aaron Baddeley had a 66, while Dustin Johnson chopped up Change your mind. Change your life.

The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — One shot clipped an ash tree and kept Phil Mickelson out of worse trouble than he was in. Another landed behind a Bottle Brush, blocking his path to the 10th green at Riviera. On yet another hole, Mickelson had to thread a 9iron through the limbs of five eucalyptus trees. So when he walked into the gallery to find his tee shot on the 15th hole and saw a man flat on his back, Mickelson assumed the worst. “It wouldn’t be the first time, so I thought for sure I took him out,” Mickelson said Saturday. Instead, the spectator was being still because the ball was inside the hem of his shorts. Despite all these adventures, Mickelson managed a 1-under 70 on Saturday to share the lead with PGA champion Keegan Bradley in the Northern Trust Open. On a day when “routine par” was not part of his vocabulary, Phil was thrilled. “This was a great round for me because I did not play well, and I shot 1-under par and I’m atop the leaderboard,” Mickelson said. “Usually when I win, I’ll have two good rounds and I’ll have two rounds that aren’t so great that I’ve got to keep somewhere in it to give myself a chance.” The past two days weren’t his best. He still has a great chance to end his West Coast swing with back-to-back wins. The toughest part might be ahead of him. Bradley took only five putts over the last five holes, including a 10-footer for par on the last hole that got him into the final group, for a 5-under 66 and his best chance at a win since he captured the PGA Championship in August. What made the par so meaningful was getting a chance to play with Mickelson, whom he considers a mentor. Mickelson invited Bradley in on one of his money games before The Players Championship, where Mick-

the end of his round before a birdie on the 18th that gave him a 67. They were in the group two shots behind, along with FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas, who had a 68. Johnson three-putted from just outside 3 feet on the par-5 17th and made bogey. “I’m going to come out tomorrow and give it everything I’ve got,” Johnson said. Twelve players were within three shots of the lead, so it could be anyone’s game today. Mickelson still likes his position. “I was six back last week, so I would prefer where I’m at this week,” he said. Also on Saturday: Miyazato up one in Thailand CHONBURI, Thailand — Ai Miyazato shot a 7-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over top-ranked Yani Tseng after the third round of the LPGA Thailand. Miyazato birdied five of the first six holes on the back nine. She had a 14-under 202 total on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course. Tseng shot her second straight 65 after opening with a 73. Perry sets Champions record NAPLES, Fla. — Kenny Perry shot a 10-under 62 to break the Champions Tour’s 36-hole scoring record with an 18-under 126 total in the ACE Group Classic. Perry broke the record of 17 under held by six players. Perry made five birdies on the front nine on The TwinEagles Club’s Talon Course, and six more on the back. Kruger rides eagles to lead NEW DELHI — South Africa’s Jbe Kruger shot a 6under 66 in the third round of the Avantha Masters to take a one-shot lead in the European Tour event. Kruger had two eagles and two birdies in his bogey-free round to finish at 11-under 205. Germany’s Marcel Siem (68), France’s Jean-Baptiste Gonnet (69) and Scotland’s Peter Whiteford (72) were tied for second.

Signs of recovery T

he last four and a half years have been hard on dreamers. With jobs evaporating, homes being lost, companies going belly up, it hasn’t been a fertile time for thinking expansively about the future. But that may be changing. An email from Bulletin reader Les Alford, and a story in The Bulletin recently prompted this thinking. First Alford, who wrote: On March 25, 1990, The Bulletin published a supplement titled Agenda 2000. The pictures and stories from 22 years ago were interesting and brought back memories, some fond and some not so. “A portion that I found even more interesting was a survey commissioned by The Bulletin titled ‘Where Is This Parade Going?’ “It was an attempt to gauge the public’s view, looking toward the next 10 years. It asked questions regarding growth, quality of life, traffic congestion, and several others. I found it fascinating to read what the concerns were in 1990 and how they relate to what we face today. “It made me wonder how the responses would be today to the same questions. It might be worthwhile to have a staffer review this document. Maybe there is a story there. Maybe not.” It wasn’t much before 1990 that Bend and Central Oregon were in a terrible economic trough. As the story goes, it was the commitment of local leaders in that downturn to build a better community that led to the great success we enjoyed from then until about 2007, when the current demise began. It is a good story, indeed, but is the time right to start thinking about the future? On the plus side, there are signs that the economy is coming back, albeit slowly. Some say the unemployment rate is understated because so many have given up on jobs. Perhaps. But there have been a few months of raw job gains, almost all of which were created in the private sector. On Thursday, it was reported that initial filings for unemployment benefits had dropped again. The same day there was a story in The Oregonian that Portland area home sales in January were 18 percent higher than January 2011. On Friday, The Bulletin reported that the median home sale price had increased in Bend for the second straight month. The week before last, there was a report that non-defense capital spending increased to nearly boom time levels at the end of 2011. Incurable optimist though I may be, I am still aware that there is a negative side. Economic prospects for Europe and the possible repercussions on the United States are scary, indeed. Who knows what the nuclear standoff with Iran will lead to? Our national debt is continuing to rise, and we are in a presidential election year. But at least some signs are encouraging. The story in The Bulletin that brought back thoughts of better days was reporter Nick Grube’s excellent take out on Juniper Ridge in last Sunday’s edition. There are a lot of opinions about Juniper Ridge, 1,500 acres of city-owned land in Northeast Bend. It was projected as a place where businesses could be attracted to the area and where a university could someday sprout. Critics raised legitimate issues concerning infrastructure and feasibility, and, of course the development became the poster child for arguments over growth. Grube was not shy about describing the obstacles to development of the land itself. Like it or not, however, the project had — and still does — several great qualities to it. Like the leaders who guided the area out of the depths of the ’80s, the Juniper Ridge concept, however imperfect, represents imagination, energy and commitment. It also carries something unique. Most of the leaders of the ’80s were lucky enough to see the recovery they hoped for. Whatever becomes of Juniper Ridge, it will be decades to fruition. And there are many shorterterm dreams we should be considering. But at least there are dreams. — John Costa is editor-in-chief of The Bulletin. Contact: 541-383-0337,

Redmond Hotel can learn from Pilot Butte Inn


nce upon a time, Bend, like Redmond, had an old hotel in the heart of downtown. And once upon a time city officials, community leaders and others

tried to save it. They were unsuccessful, and the Pilot Butte Inn — which sat on the northwest corner of Greenwood Avenue and Wall Street — was razed on June 20, 1973, an ignominious end for a building erected in 1917. Now Redmond’s New Redmond Hotel, a three-story Georgian-style structure built downtown in 1928 after the original Redmond Hotel burned, sits largely empty. City officials are trying to decide what to do with it. They’ve agreed to spend $49,000 with a Portland consulting firm to decide. The consultant will consider three options: restoring it as a hotel, turning it into office space and converting it to housing. Accomplishing any of the three will not be cheap and will require the cooperation of the building’s current owner, Brad Evert. He believes there’s a market for the 60 rooms in the hotel, once the economy improves. He said he has spent close to $1 million in refurbishing the old building since he purchased it in 2004. With luck, the consultant will find that the building is structurally sound and can be put into good shape for relatively little cost. And — with luck — Evert or the city, or a combination of the two, will find the money to fill the top two floors of the hotel with rooms, offices or apartments.

Bend and the Pilot Butte Inn were not so lucky. The cost of refurbishing the old hotel was going to be steep, no matter how you looked at it. That price skyrocketed when a speculator bought it with the intent of making a killing by selling it to the single party interested in putting the money needed to keep it alive. It killed the deal and, shortly thereafter, the building came down. It would be harder — though not impossible — to tear down the New Redmond Hotel. For that, folks who want to save the building can look to what happened in Bend. The Pilot Butte Inn’s destruction helped spur the county to create an historic landmarks commission whose job it is to identify and help preserve such structures. For now, it’s impossible to tell what the fate of the New Redmond Hotel will be. We hope restoring it to healthy life is doable, and at a reasonable price. Redmond has spent considerable time, money and effort in recent years on sprucing up its downtown, and the hotel is easily the dominant structure.

Doctors also reserve right to refuse service


s it ever OK for doctors to refuse to treat patients who won’t follow their advice? In the case of childhood immunizations, an increasing number of doctors are saying yes. The Wall Street Journal reports that a study last year of Connecticut pediatricians showed 30 percent of doctors asking families who refused immunizations to find care elsewhere. A similar study in the Midwest found 21 percent. That compares with 6 percent “routinely� taking such action, and 16 percent “sometimes� taking it in surveys in 2001 and 2006. The actions are not recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which urges doctors to accept parents’ decisions if multiple attempts to convince them otherwise are unsuccessful, according to the Journal. Parental resistance to vaccines is often based on now-discredited concerns that the shots are linked

to autism or other negative health outcomes. Measles and whooping cough outbreaks have been blamed on low immunization rates. One pediatric practice in Michigan told the Journal it was motivated by concern for other patients in the waiting room when it decided to ask those who refuse vaccination to find care elsewhere. We think it’s perfectly reasonable for a doctor to ask a family to find another doctor if they disagree on something so fundamental as childhood vaccinations. The underlying tension won’t help in establishing a good relationship and communication between doctor and patient, and evidence is strong that those are critical to good care. One important caveat applies if there is not a good alternative for the patient. In rural areas, there might be only one doctor or one group of doctors nearby. In that instance, doctor and patient must find a way to work around the conflict.

Protect Oregon’s industry, not wolves that prey on it By Sharon Livingston recently attended a Umatilla County Cattlemen’s meeting in Pendleton. My specific purpose was to view the presentation by Casey Anderson on wolf research, documented on the ranch Casey manages and operates in the Cascade region of Idaho. Casey has documented proof of wolf habits of migration, interaction with cattle, and depredation. Funds for the research in part have been generated by the Oregon Beef Council beef checkoff dollars, contributed each time an Oregon producer sells a beef. The study has been conducted by Oregon State University employees, and actually took place in Idaho because it couldn’t be done in Oregon. Numbers of wolves in Idaho have gone far beyond what was agreed to in the original relocation plan. In Oregon we have a plan that was adopted and has been revised. It was agreed that chronic depredating wolves would be eliminated. The environmental community was fully represented in the plan’s completion and agreed to it. Now they have filed an appeal and stopped the elimination of chronic depredating wolves. Livestock producers in Oregon cannot live with the depredation happening in Idaho documented in the research I’ve mentioned. In Grant County alone livestock production is one of the last natural resource industries that have survived to support the economy. It is


IN MY VIEW We need to take steps now to protect the livestock industry in Oregon, an industry that brings millions of dollars into the state’s economy. It is time to stand up for the people in Oregon that produce food to feed people. a constant struggle to live within rules and regulations without adding a predator we cannot control. I graduated from a local high school that had 48 students in grades 9 through 12. Today, the same school has less students than that in grades K-12, and would not even have that many were it not for importing foreign exchange students to fill the high school roster. I point to this only to show the loss of population and decline of the communities and economy of our county. Read the history section of the Oregon Blue Book. In the Willamette Valley in 1843, wolves, cougars, bears and coyotes were decimating the livestock herds of the settlers living there. Settlers came together for the first of any kind of organized government to stop the killing of their livestock,

and our first government was called “Wolf Meetings.� I learned this in the third grade. I don’t know if they teach Oregon history in schools now. I have talked to educated Oregon citizens that did not know this information. We have regressed over 150 years. Allowing a predator to destroy my livelihood — that being the production of beef — is not what I, as a lifelong, taxpaying, communitysupporting citizen believe we need for Oregon. We need to take steps now to protect the livestock industry in Oregon, an industry that brings millions of dollars into the state’s economy. It is time to stand up for the people in Oregon that produce food to feed people. Less than 2 percent of today’s population is feeding the state and the nation. The other 98 percent is so far removed from food production, many of them have forgotten the source of their daily sustenance. The last line of Amendment V of the U.S. Constitution states, “nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.� The federal government, namely U.S. Fish and Wildlife, was responsible for bringing the wolves back to the U.S. Therefore, the federal government should be responsible for controlling this population, and compensating those whose private property is being consumed and destroyed by the federal government’s wolf. — Sharon Livingston lives in Long Creek.

Performance might be affecting Congress’ approval rating


am shocked to report that Congress, the beating heart of American democracy, is unpopular. Not unpopular like a shy kid in junior high. Unpopular like the Ebola virus, or zombies. Held in near-universal contempt, like TV shows about hoarders with dead cats in their kitchens. The latest Gallup poll gave Congress a 10 percent approval rating. As Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado keeps pointing out, that’s lower than BP during the oil spill, Nixon during Watergate or banks during the banking crisis. On the plus side, while 86 percent of respondents told Gallup that they disapproved of the job Congress was doing, only 4 percent said they had no opinion. So little attention, yet so much rancor. We’re presuming that this is because of the dreaded partisan gridlock, which has made Congress increasingly unproductive in mat-

ters that do not involve the naming of post offices. And Congress is listening! Lately, we have been seeing heartening new signs of bipartisan cooperation. For instance, the House and Senate appear to be approaching an agreement on the payroll tax cut, namely that it will continue and not be paid for. But there’s much, much more. For instance, both chambers recently approved a big new ethics reform bill that would ban members of Congress from engaging in insider trading. Perhaps you imagined that this was already against the law. This piece of legislation had been lying around gathering dust since 2006. But, this year, the House and Senate decided to stand tall and pass it as a matter of principle. It had nothing to do with a “60 Minutes� report that made the whole place look like a convention of grifters. Totally unrelated. This was simply a bill whose

GAIL COLLINS time had come. And that bill would probably already be signed into law were it not for a disagreement over whether to require the highly paid professionals who poke around Congress collecting information that might be of use to their Wall Street clients to register the same way lobbyists do. The idea ran afoul of the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, the Darth Vader of Capitol Hill. Cantor says the idea should be studied, which is, of course, legislatese for “trampled to death by a thousand boots.� Still, the good news is that the basic idea of prohibiting members of Congress from using the information they acquire in the course of their

public duties to engage in insider trading did pass both chambers by enormous majorities. And the bipartisan cooperation keeps rolling on. This week, the Senate confirmed Judge Adalberto Jose Jordan to a seat on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. A visitor from another country might not have appreciated the proportions of this achievement, given the fact that Jordan, who was born in Cuba and who once clerked for Sandra Day O’Connor, had no discernible opposition. But Americans ought to have a better grasp of how the Senate works. The nomination’s progress had long been thwarted by Mike Lee, a freshman Republican from Utah, who has decided to hold up every single White House appointment to anything out of pique over ... well, it doesn’t really matter. When you’re a senator, you get to do that kind of thing.

This forced the majority leader, Harry Reid, to get a 60-vote majority to move Judge Jordan forward, which is never all that easy. Then there was further delay thanks to Rand Paul, a freshman from Kentucky, who stopped action for as long as possible because he was disturbed about foreign aid to Egypt. All that is forgotten now. The nomination was approved, 94-5, only 125 days after it was unanimously OK’d by the Judiciary Committee. Whiners in the White House pointed out that when George W. Bush was president, circuit court nominations got to a floor vote in an average of 28 days. No matter. Good work, Senate! Only 17 more long-pending judicial nominations to go! Meanwhile, the House named a post office in Missouri for a fallen Marine. — Gail Collins is a columnist for The New York Times.


C Immigration: The unlawful, immoral P

resident Barack Obama recently assured El Salvador that the United States would not deport more 200,000 Salvadorans residing illegally in the United States. As the election nears, and the president looks to court Hispanic voters, he also created a new position of “public advocate” for illegal immigrants. His duties would appear to be to advocate that millions circumvent, rather than follow, current federal law. The administration has also said it will focus enforcement only on those who have committed crimes — with the implicit understanding that it is no longer a crime to illegally enter and reside in the United States. In contrast, Obama has caricatured those supporting completion of a fence on the border as wanting to place alligators in the Rio Grande. It is time that Americans revisit the issue and ponder very carefully the morality of entering the United States illegally. True, American employers have welcomed in illegal aliens as a source of cheap labor. Employers were happy to pass the ensuing social costs on to taxpayers. To summarily deport those who have resided here for 20 years, obeyed the law, worked hard, stayed off public assistance and are now willing to pay a fine, demonstrate English proficiency and pass a citizenship test would be impracticable, callous and

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON counterproductive. Most, however, probably do not fit those reasonable criteria. More importantly, we forget that the influx of millions of illegal aliens unfairly undercuts the wages of the working American poor, especially in times of high unemployment. Crossing the border was also hardly a one-time “infraction.” It was the beginning of serial unethical behavior, as illegal aliens on everyday forms and affidavits were not truthful about their immigration status. The legal process of immigrating to America was reduced to a freefor-all rush to the border. Millions of applicants abroad wait patiently, if not naively, in line to have their education, skills and capital resources evaluated. But they are punished with delay or rejection because they alone follow immigration law. Billions of dollars in state and federal social services do not just help provide parity to illegal aliens, but also free them to send back about $50 billion in remittances to Latin America each year. That staggering sum also suggests that Mexico and other Latin American governments, as an element of national policy, quite cynically export human capi-

tal to gain U.S. dollars, rather than make the necessary economical, social and political reforms to keep their own at home. Nor is it very liberal to turn illegal immigration into an issue of identity and tribal politics. Too many advocates for open borders and amnesty argue about the politics of ethnic solidarity rather than considerations of immigration law. In other words, we do not hear much national outrage over the plight of the occasional Pole, Nigerian or Korean who overstays his tourist visa, but rather equate the circumvention of immigration law almost exclusively with social justice for Latinos. How reactionary and illiberal that debate has become, when Mexican Americans who object to the undermining of immigration law are slandered as sellouts, while non-Hispanics who do the same are smeared as racists and nativists. In fact, illegal immigration unfairly warped perceptions of undeniable Hispanic success. If one does not include millions of recently arrived poor Latin American foreign nationals in federal and state surveys, then Hispanic American citizens prove statistically to be assimilating, intermarrying, integrating, and finding economic success at rates comparable to many other immigrant groups of the past. To mean anything, laws have to be followed. When newcomers choose

to ignore them, then the entire structure of jurisprudence crashes as well. If aliens are free to ignore federal immigration law, then cannot citizens likewise pick and choose which statutes they find inconvenient? Finally, illegal immigration has wrongly been couched in terms of a xenophobic and insensitive exploiter preying on a more noble and defenseless guest. In truth, the United States is the most generous host in the world, and never more so than during the present age. There are now about 40 million foreign-born people residing in the United States, both legal and illegal immigrants. That is both the greatest absolute number and percentage of the population in our nation’s history. No other country in the world is more liberal in its legal immigration policies or has been more caring toward new arrivals. To suggest otherwise is dishonest and shows an ignorance of how most countries, who now export their citizens to the U.S., treat any who would do the same to them. We can argue about the history or the future of illegal immigration. But please spare us the psychodramatic appeals to a higher morality. In most regards, illegal immigration has proven as immoral as it is unlawful.

t’s often been said that Oscar season reflects the broader splendors and dysfunctions of American public life. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ ideals of scrupulous fair play have been under constant challenge in recent years, on such issues as the promotional pull of A-list stars, the power of big-studio money and negative advertising campaigns designed to undermine the competition. Now, though, the academy may be committing a blunder of its own making. It recently announced that it would be ditching its current all-mail secret ballot system, and that its more than 5,000 members would be voting through their computers next year. The academy said the software developed by the San Diego-based computer voting company — Everyone Counts — would incorporate “multiple layers of security” and “military-grade encryption techniques” to ensure that nothing untoward or underhanded could occur before PricewaterhouseCoopers, its accountancy firm, captured the votes from the Internet ether. Unfortunately, leading computer scientists around the world who have looked at Internet voting systems do not share the academy’s confidence. On the contrary, they say the technology is vulnerable to a variety of cyber attacks — no matter how many layers of encryption there are — and risks producing a fraudulent outcome without anyone necessarily realizing it. Nothing has demonstrated the danger more starkly, perhaps, than a pilot Internet election in Washington in the fall of 2010, which was comprehensively hacked by a team from the University of Michigan. Election officials had invited the public to test the program, and the team, led by

computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, was able not only to change votes undetected but also to see who had voted for whom. Halderman reported seeing attempted hacks from as far away as Iran and China, and took steps to thwart them while election administrators in Washington remained blissfully unaware. Computer experts on both sides of the Atlantic are unequivocal: There is no known way to have a secret ballot, keeping the voter entirely separate from his or her vote, and also to conduct a meaningful audit ensuring that nothing went awry. David Dill, a computer science professor at Stanford University and the founder of the voting rights group — — said the danger was far more acute when voters use their own computers, which tend to be riddled with malicious software that enables hackers half a world away to manipulate them at will. “If someone decided to steal the Oscars and snag votes from machines already under their control, it could change the outcome,” Dill explained. And, as goes the acad-

emy, so goes the political world. As more and more states disregard the experts and allow Internet voting for overseas and military voters, the risk of foul play in political elections increases. Four years ago, Dill drafted a statement outlining the dangers of Internet voting — which had just been introduced for the Democratic Party primary season — and got 30 high-profile colleagues to sign it. These included Avi Rubin and Dan Wallach, who led the team in 2003 that exposed deep flaws in the operating software used by Diebold, then one of the leading makers of computer voting terminals. Diebold took a hit to its once-stellar reputation as a maker of ATMs and is no longer in the election software business. Everyone Counts is certainly savvier than some of the computer voting machine manufacturers who emerged a decade ago. Chief Executive Lori Steele understands that clean elections are about accountability from end to end, not just some miracle machine that does all the work by itself. She also did not contest the objections voiced by Dill and the other computer scientists. Rather, she argued that, whatever the flaws, carefully encrypted computers are far more reliable than paper ballots, which can potentially be manipulated by a single rogue election official. Everyone Counts puts its machines through a rigorous auditing process, she said, and even interrupted a recent election in Australia to conduct a surprise audit in the middle of the ballot count. That argument might have been good enough for the academy and for PricewaterhouseCoopers, but it still alarms many software experts. “A surprise audit in the middle is interesting, but I don’t think that’s adequate for the job because there are

Bloomberg News


ne night, in June 1989, a man named Nathaniel Thomas was shot to death on a street bisecting a public housing project in the Northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C. I covered the night police beat at the time for the Washington Post. For cub reporters, the shadow of the Capitol dome was an irresistible cliche, which I inevitably folded into my two-paragraph write-up of what one homicide detective labeled “misdemeanor homicides” and which my editor just as inevitably excised. Every night saw multiple shootings across a dozen neighborhoods. More than 400 people were slain each year as the 1980s gave way to the 1990s, and a new epithet had taken hold: Washington was the nation’s “murder capital.” In the late 1980s and early 1990s, cities across the country were plagued

by rampant violence, and social scientists were predicting an unstoppable rise in homicide. The warning was stark, even apocalyptic: The “superpredators,” feral children born with crack cocaine in their bodies, would be reaching puberty in 10 more years, and then America’s cities would succumb to uncontrollable violence. Fast forward more than two decades, to the end of 2011, and a news conference hosted by police chief, Cathy Lanier. Lanier looked sternly into the cameras and warned D.C. residents of a sharp rise in crime. Not a crime against persons; a crime against iPhones. Theft of handheld devices was on the rise, she said, and she didn’t seem happy about it. The city’s homicide rate, on the other hand, was cause for some satisfaction. In 2011, 108 people were murdered in Washington. In 1991, 479 people had been killed. One hundred and eight unnecessarily dead people is nothing to cel-

ebrate, of course, but the drop — and the promise of further decreases — is an extraordinary and largely unheralded development, replicated in many cities across the country. We are in a period of American history in which everything seems to be getting worse, but here is something that is getting dramatically better. Not long after her news conference, I visited Lanier at her office at police headquarters to talk about the bad old days and about how she plans to keep them at bay. Lanier, who is entering her fifth year in the job, is an unlikely police chief: a white woman in a largely black city, a native of blue-collar Maryland who was a mother at the age of 15 and who somehow earned a master’s degree while working her way through a series of dangerous jobs for a dispirited and dysfunctional police force. When she first joined the department in 1990, she was assigned to a

foot patrol — not because the department had embraced the philosophy that later became known as community policing, but because it had so few working patrol cars. I asked her why Washington had changed so dramatically. She made a series of broad sociological observations, noting the decline in crack’s popularity and the impact of gentrification on some parts of the city. What she didn’t do was praise herself. I noted that many police chiefs would answer this question by listing their many and profound achievements. “Not gonna happen,” she said. Yet Lanier’s success in suppressing violent crime has much to do with the innovations in street policing and in detective work she introduced during her tenure, innovations that suggest it’s possible for government to intervene in social crises and fix problems that seemed immutable. — Jeffrey Goldberg is a columnist for Bloomberg News.

still multiple ways to defeat it,” Dill said. Peter Ryan, a British professor of applied security at the University of Luxembourg who has worked unsuccessfully for years to crack the Internet voting problem, was equally scathing, dismissing Everyone Counts’ description of its own software security as “fancy crypto” that would not stop someone motivated and smart enough to find a way to break it. The academy has always bent over backward to keep Oscars voting beyond suspicion. It has also won plaudits from voting reform advocates for its embrace of instant runoffs and, in the best picture category, rank-choice voting that now gives rise to a variable number of nominees each year. When asked about the problems inherent in Internet voting, the academy’s chief operating officer, Ric Robertson, appeared to be unaware of them. “I’m not personally aware of that particular dialogue,” he told me. He expressed an interest in studying the problem, though, and emphasized that Everyone Counts and PricewaterhouseCoopers plan to spend the next year fine-tuning the system. It’s important that the academy weighs its options carefully, and not just to squash arguments about which actors or screenwriters might have been “robbed.” An endorsement of Internet voting by Hollywood’s ruling body will inevitably be taken as an opportunity to push the technology more aggressively in the political arena. As long as there are questions about the safety of the technology, that expansion poses an ever-greater threat to our democratic integrity. — Andrew Gumbel is the author of “Steal This Vote: Dirty Elections and the Rotten History of Democracy in America.” He wrote this for the Los Angeles Times.

While problems in U.S. seem to rise, murder declines By Jeffrey Goldberg


atching the Syrian Army pummel the Syrian town of Homs to put down the rebellion there against the regime of President Bashar Assad is the remake of a really bad movie that starred Bashar’s father, Hafez, exactly 30 years ago this month. I know. I saw the original. It was April 1982, and I had just arrived in Beirut as a reporter. I heard terrifying stories about an uprising that had happened in February in the Syrian town of Hama, led by the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. Word had it that then-President Hafez Assad had quashed the rebellion by shelling whole Hama neighborhoods, then dynamiting buildings, some with residents still inside. That May, I got a visa to Syria, just as Hama had been reopened. So I just hired a cab and went. It was stunning. Whole swaths of buildings had, indeed, been destroyed and then steamrolled into parking lots the size of football fields. If you kicked the ground, you’d come up with scraps of clothing, a tattered book, a shoe. Amnesty International estimated that as many as 20,000 people were killed there. I had never seen brutality at that scale, and, in a book I wrote later, I gave it a name: “Hama Rules.” Hama Rules are no rules at all. You do whatever it takes to stay in power and you don’t just defeat your foes. You bomb them in their homes and then you steamroll them so that their children and their children’s children will never forget and never even dream of challenging you again. Well, 30 years later, the children of those Syrian children have forgotten. They’ve lost their fear. This time around, though, it is not just the Muslim Brotherhood rebelling in one town. Now it is youths from all over Syria. Navtej Dhillon and Tarik Yousef, the editors of “Generation in Waiting: The Unfulfilled Promise of Young People in the Middle East,” note that more than 100 million individuals between the ages of 15 and 29 live in the Middle East — up from fewer than 67 million in 1990 — and much of what their governments have promised them has not materialized. But the quest for democracy is not the only drama playing out in Syria. Syria is also a highly tribalized and sectarian-divided country. Its Shiiteleaning Alawite minority — led by the Assads and comprising 12 percent of the population — dominates the government, army and security services. Sunni-Muslim Syrian Arabs are 75 percent, Christians 10 percent and Druze, Kurds and others make up the rest. While Syria’s uprising started as a nonsectarian, nonviolent expression of the desire by young Syrians to be treated as citizens, when Assad responded with Hama Rules it triggered a violent response. This has brought out the sectarian fears on all sides. Now it is hard to tell where the democratic aspirations of the rebellion stop and the sectarian aspirations begin. As a result, most Alawites are rallying to Assad, as are some Sunnis who have benefitted from his regime. These pro-regime Alawites and Sunnis see the chaos and soccer riots in Egypt and say to themselves: “Assad or chaos? We’ll take Assad.” I don’t know what is sufficient to persuade Assad to cede power to a national unity government, but I know what is necessary: He has to lose the two most important props holding up his regime. One is the support of China, Iran and Russia — which don’t care about U.S. condemnation, but they might care about the rest of the world’s. The other prop, though, can only be removed by Syrians. The still-fractious Syrian opposition has to find a way to unify itself and also reach out to the Alawites — as well as Syria’s Christian and Sunni merchants — and guarantee that their interests will be secure in a new Syria so they give up on Assad. Without that, nothing good will come of any of this. The more the Syrian opposition demonstrates to all Syrians and to the world that it is about creating a pluralistic Syria, the weaker Assad will be and the more likely that a post-Assad Syria will have chance at stability and decency.

“Stay Awake” By Dan Chaon (Ballantine, 272 pgs., $25) By Connie Ogle McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Amar Klar, a geneticist of the National Institutes of Health, at his office in Fort Detrick, Md., on Feb. 10. The bestselling new novel, “The Marriage Plot,” by Jeffrey Eugenides, describes Klar’s work on yeast genetic studies with such detail that many assume researchers had to have given him some in-depth help.

Geneticist shocked by book’s portrayal of work By Gina Kolata New York Times News Service

It was 1982, and Leonard, a young research fellow, was telling his girlfriend’s mother and sister about his work on yeast genetics. He carefully explained the basics, noting that mating yeast cells have a crucial gene that comes in two versions. Then he told them his research goal: “We’re trying to figure out why the progeny of a given cell division can acquire different developmental fates.” To find out, his lab was removing a gene from yeast and putting it in backward to see if the offspring developed differently. The scene is fictional; it appears in a best-selling new novel, “The Marriage Plot,” by Jeffrey Eugenides. But when the geneticist Amar J.S. Klar read it, he said in an interview, he was flooded with 20-yearold memories. The detailed description was of his own work. The yeast studies were ones that had made his scientific reputation. The fictional laboratory sounded just like his old lab at Cold Spring Harbor, on Long Island. Klar, now at the National Institutes of Health, was not upset. He was astounded. Somehow a popular novelist had read and absorbed his work, describing it in detail and acknowledging his paper in the preface. All the more surprising is that Eugenides is far from being an expert in genetics. He did not study science and does not even know many scientists, he said in an interview; his friends are mainly writers and actors. When he wrote those descriptions of Leonard’s research, he had never been in a yeast genetics lab, had never spoken to a yeast genetics researcher. He had never been to Cold Spring Harbor.

Eugenides’ feat — creating an accurate world of science and scientists — raises questions about how much research fiction writers must do to write about science and whether, somehow, they can figure out this most esoteric world without going near it. It took five years for Eugenides to write “The Marriage Plot.” He started, he said, with a concept of two of the central characters, Leonard and Madeleine. Leonard, he decided, was going to be the best boyfriend Madeleine had ever had — and the worst. But how would he convey that? “I had to start giving him qualities,” he said. Eugenides’ method, he said, is to learn a few facts and then use his imagination, working alone in his large Tudor-style house in Princeton, N.J., a short walk from the university, where he teaches part time. “I wanted a character who was impressive in college for a range of knowledge,” he said. “I toyed with making him a physicist or chemist,” he said, but he settled on biology because that was a subject he had looked into when writing a previous novel, “Middlesex” (2002), about a person whose sex is ambiguous. As part of the “best and worst boyfriend” package, he decided to give Leonard bipolar disease. Eugenides said he had never known anyone with the disorder, but looked it up online, finding symptoms and drugs and side effects. He asked himself what it might feel like to be manic, to be depressed. “Maybe there was a time when I did youthful, risky things,” Eugenides said. “I stayed up all night. There were rare moments when I

Book explores link between creative practice, perfection “Guitar Zero: The New Musician and the Science of Learning” By Gary Marcus (Penguin Press, 274 pgs., $25.95) By Nick Owchar Los Angeles Times

Spending countless hours playing the video game “Guitar Hero” has fostered an illusion among many middle-age guys. It’s not too late to be a guitar god. Then they discover something: There’s a big difference between the colored plastic buttons on the guitar-shaped game control and the six strings of an actual guitar. But is the difference insurmountable? Gary Marcus set out to answer that question in “Guitar Zero: The New Musician and the Science of Learning.”

Marcus examines how our brains are affected by creativity — learning a musical instrument or language — and how these experiences remain open to all of us, no matter our age. How? By practice. Practice spurs brain growth, he says. It causes the brain to take what it learns and shift it from explicit to implicit — a process he calls “proceduralization.” The fact is, Marcus says, “a musical mind develops only if we put in years of hard work ... in which parts of the brain that evolved for other purposes such as language ... are gradually co-opted into doing something new.” Marcus sounds an encouraging note for older readers who have always wanted to do something but have never had time.

felt my most brilliant and my most conceited.” What might it feel like to be in that state for months at a time? What might Leonard say? What would he do? He asked similar questions about Leonard’s science. “What would he be doing in 1982? What science was current at that time?” He went to the Internet and stumbled upon studies of yeast mating systems. Perfect, he thought. It fit well with the theme of his book. He labored for years, writing and rewriting, watching the book and its characters take form. But the only person who saw any of his work was a psychiatrist who helped get the drug doses correct for a person with bipolar disease in 1982. Other than that, Eugenides said, “I did not show it to a soul.” Mark Rose, a yeast geneticist at Princeton, was asked by friends if he had tutored Eugenides. No, he said, he’d never met the man. And yet, Rose said, Eugenides “really does manage to capture not only the field, but the setting.” In fact, Leonard took a yeast genetics course that was just like a course Rose had taught at Cold Spring Harbor. “All of that was spot on,” Rose said. In fact, Eugenides did consult a yeast geneticist, though not Rose. When the book was written, but before he turned it in, he said, he went to see the Princeton geneticist David Botstein to check facts and “spice up the scenes.” Botstein took his visitor into his lab and announced, “I have here a novelist.” Silverman remembers Eugenides coming to the lab, but does not recall details of his visit. Eugenides, he said, “didn’t spend much time here.” But he got what he needed.

Dan Chaon’s stories are restless nightmares. They’re the soft prickle at the back of your neck, the insistent fears that pull you from sleep, the full-blown horror that might greet you when you wake. These stories demand and capture your attention, and they don’t let go even after you’ve finished reading them. That impending sense of doom that permeates? Chaon’s broken, lonely characters can’t shake it, either. “Something bad has been looking for him for a long time,” one wary father knows, “and now, at last, it is growing near.” Author of two fine novels, “You Remind Me of Me” and “Await Your Reply,” Chaon started his writing career with short fiction in the collections “Fitting Ends” and “Among the Missing,” which was a finalist for the National Book Award. He’s a master of psychological tension, which plays out mostly in small Midwestern towns in “Stay Awake.” These burgs could be homey, friendly places where the locals slap you on the back and buy you a beer. Instead, they’re desolate landscapes where his characters are forced to confront the monster they’d like to avoid most: the truth about themselves. That guy who senses something bad on the way in the opening story “The Bees”? His name is Gene, and when his son Frankie wakes up screaming, “(i)t is the worst sound Gene can imagine, the sound of a young child dying violently — falling from a building, or caught in some machinery that is tearing an arm off, or being mauled by a predatory animal.” Gene had another child once — and another wife, too — but he was a drunk, a terrible man, and he abandoned them. Now he’s afraid some sort of payback is due. He can’t stop dreaming about that other boy growing into a man who whispers, “I know how to hurt you.” Though the stories range widely in experience, they all carry a heavy atmosphere of dread. In Chaon’s twilight realms, communication is as elusive as happiness. The lonely widower in “To Psychic Underworld” begins to believe someone — or maybe everyone — is trying to communicate with him through random notes he finds — “Roach spray / Batteries / Water Mellon” or “I had cybersex!! With a guy named eric !” Chaon reminds us of the ripples that follow in the wake of those terrible things — fatal accidents, family suicides, a man who consigns his dead mother’s dogs to the vet’s needle rather than find them new homes. He doesn’t look them in the face when he drops them off. Chaon’s dark gift is to understand those things we never want to tell — and to make us want to read about them anyway.

2 love stories folded into 1 book “The Thorn and the Blossom” By Theodora Goss (Quirk Books, Pennsylvania, 82 pgs., $16.95) By Tish Wells McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Double the love story, double the fun for fantasy readers. “The Thorn and the Blossom” is an accordion-bound two-sided romance. Readers have a choice of whether to first read Evelyn Morgan’s story or Brendan Thorn’s story. It could be written off as a gimmicky young adult fantasy with lovers lost in time except that the author, Theodora Goss, raises it a higher level with her eerie writing. It’s a contemporary story of boy (Brendon) meets girl (Evelyn) as she visits Cornwall. She runs away after their first kiss. They meet again years later but obstacles stand in the way of a happy ending — her second sight and his comatose dying wife. Their story is interwoven with a Goss-created fictional legend concerning the Arthurian knight, Sir Gawan; his love, Elowen, and a curse thrown by a witch that parts the couple for 10 generations. As the dying Elowen says: “Have patience, love, and we shall meet again “As surely as wild roses have their thorns

By Janet Maslin New York Times News Service

In a stealth bull’s-eye of a political novel, Thomas Mallon invests the Watergate affair with all the glitter, glamour, suave grace and subtlety that it doesn’t often get. His cleverly counterintuitive “Watergate” even has the name-dropping panache of a Hollywood tell-all. In one typically well-waltzed episode the guests at an Oct. 20, 1973, birthday party for columnist Art Buchwald include the Washington Post editor, Ben Bradlee, “with an attractive, sharp-eyed girlfriend, apparently a reporter;” “Lyndon’s little poodle, Jack Valenti — now a miniature, silver-haired version of the MGM lion, cheerleading the movie business on;” ancient Alice Roosevelt Longworth, the most caustic party guest in town; and network television newscaster Roger Mudd. Only when a loudspeaker begins paging Mudd does it become apparent that this is that Saturday night: the night of President Richard Nixon’s executive dismissal of Archibald Cox, the Watergate

“For weary years eventually pass.” The modern character of Evelyn comments dryly, “Who wants to wait around for that long for a boyfriend?” Goss wrote both stories as a diversion as she was finishing her 400-page dissertation on “The Monster in the Mirror: Late Victorian Gothic and Anthropology.” She saw writing both sides of “The Thorn” as a challenge. “It can’t just be stories from just her perspective. You actually

have to read both of them to get the whole story, to understand what’s going on,” she says. She comments that there has been a trend in the last 10 years of fantasy growing out its genre roots toward more literary fantasy. “I think when I was growing up, fantasy wasn’t given credit and now it’s being given a lot more credit for sophistication. (“The Thorn”) is a literary fantasy.” Brendon hopes Evelyn will get back in touch with him. “They would not live happily

special prosecutor; Elliot Richardson, the attorney general; and William Ruckelshaus, the deputy attorney general. These events, which earned the sobriquet “Saturday Night Massacre,” happen almost casually in the midst of Mallon’s fine, boisterous historical tableau. How accurate will hair splitters find this episode? “The text contains deviations from fact that some readers will regard as unpardonable and others will deem unworthy of notice,” Mallon writes blithely in an afterword. So readers who deem the book’s liberties too free can stick to the tonnage of Watergate memoirs, transcripts, investigative reports and marginalia. More fun-loving types can take “Watergate” as lively, witty drama and give Mallon a pass on the grueling fact-checking his story might warrant. Mallon, the director of the creative writing program at George Washington University, recently talked to the student newspaper there about his research process. At a certain point he began investigating on a need-to-know basis for fear of bogging down in

details and giving “Watergate” the feel of a dissertation. He also felt free to make things up, so a few characters — like an old flame of the first lady, Pat Nixon — are clearly inventions. But most of the time the book is laced together so seamlessly that it’s impossible to be sure where the reality leaves off and the fabricating begins. A couple of tactical conceits work very well here. One is Mallon’s decision to zero in on Watergate’s most colorful characters and give each of them a distinct point of view. Most of them are women: Even when the book follows the worried thoughts of Attorney General John Mitchell, it offers a sad but riotous depiction of his loose-cannon wife, Martha, to whom he is still deeply, romantically attached. But the book’s uncontested star is Longworth, who remembers the Teapot Dome scandal and certainly knows how to put this one in perspective, and who is never at a loss for a scorching one-liner. The gentleness with which Longworth makes Nixon a confidant and tries to help him are especially touching, given what a she-demon she is to everyone else. The other smart tactic on

‘Gypsy Boy’ is America’s first peek at Britain’s Gypsy-mania “Gypsy Boy: My Life in the Secret World of the Romany Gypsies” By Mikey Walsh (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press, 278 pgs., $24.99) By Dwight Garner New York Times News Service

Britain’s obsession with Gypsy culture has spread into bookstores. The Guardian reported in the fall that four memoirs — by Gypsies, and by Irish travelers, who are sometimes called “white Gypsies” — were on paperback best-seller lists. There’s a sense of closed circles that are finally opening up. These coming-of-age memoirs take you places “Big Fat Gypsy Weddings” can’t, or won’t, go. The buzziest of these books, and the first to arrive in the United States, is “Gypsy Boy,” by Mikey Walsh — a pseudonym. It’s brash and frightening and funny — tonally, think of Frank McCourt meeting Axl Rose — without offering any real graininess or depth. The second half dissolves into daft romance-novel melodrama. But the thing is alive, and

ever after, because no one did that. But they would be together, and that was enough.” At the end, Evelyn goes back to the cliff where the legend of the lost lovers was set and muses, “The ninth life would end sadly, with grief and loss. But the tenth life — perhaps that life would end well. Perhaps Elowen would find Gawan again. Sappy, yes. But then, real life was sometime sappy.” Will they end up together? All the young romantics out there will want to know.

“The Mirage” By Matt Ruff (Harper, 414 pgs., $25.99)

you grab your furtive literary pleasures where you can. “Gypsy Boy” is largely about patriarchal trauma. The author says he was born into a clan of champion bare-knuckle fighters. “My father was a pureblood,” the author writes, “a Black Knight of raging firepower.” Walsh’s father wanted to turn his son into a fighter, too. He beat the author daily, teaching him how to take a punch. He beat his son more furiously when he began to discover that he was more of a lover than a fighter. The reader picks up on clues about Walsh’s sexuality long before his father does. He likes dresses, makeup, Barbra Streisand’s songs and “The Wizard of Oz.” This memoir can be grim. Some of the beatings are intense; teeth, mucus and blood fall to the floor. The author is raped repeatedly by a male relative. When he runs away from home at 15, and his father

discovers he is gay, he puts a bounty on his head. Hence the pseudonym. But “Gypsy Boy” is more buoyant than you might expect. The author is proud of his Gypsy heritage, and he is an unsentimental but affectionate observer of his people’s ways. He dispels myths about Gypsy life. His people are rarely poor, he writes. And he explains that there’s no such thing as a “Gypsy curse.” Gypsies merely pretend such a thing exists to frighten (or fleece) non-Gypsies. The second half of “Gypsy Boy” depicts Walsh’s coming out, his running away from home and his first relationships with men. This material is warm-hearted, but the book’s narrative slows to a crawl, and the writing loses whatever starch it once contained. Don’t come to “Gypsy Boy” looking for sociology, for a wide-angle view of Gypsy history and life. But Walsh’s book, at its best, is lean and scrappy. The author may not be much of a fighter, but on the page a lot of his punches land.

display in “Watergate” is Mallon’s understated way of working vital information into his account. Important events are mentioned almost in passing. Veteran Watergate watchers will also notice Mallon’s unusual way of dealing with the press: He ignores it. There is a reference to “Bernstein and Woodward,” who were not a brand name to the White House then. And there is an apt jibe at broadcast journalists for using the word “unprecedented” until it “seemed a synonym for ‘routine.’” In “Watergate,” the media are most alive in the pipe dreams of those characters who imagine the laurels that await them after this little historical blip has run its course. Then of course there’s Nixon himself. Mallon wastes no time on the familiar caricatures of a sloshed, foul-mouthed chief executive and his wooden wife. But the president’s public awkwardness masks something more human. “Nixon’s self-pity was a mere overlay, a kind of plastic transparency protecting the authentic anguish visible beneath,” Mallon writes. Even a cap on his teeth poignantly appears to be “infinitesimally whiter, and curiously more sincere, than the rest of his smile.”


In his essay “How to Build a Universe That Doesn’t Fall Apart Two Days Later,” Philip K. Dick lays out the challenges of the novelist who invents a world. “It is my job to create universes as the basis of one novel after another,” he writes. “And I have to build them in such a way that they do not fall apart two days later. ... However I will reveal a secret to you: I like to build universes that do fall apart. ... Do not assume that order and stability are always good, in a society or a universe.” Dick knew what he was talking about; his 1962 novel “The Man in the High Castle” remains among the finest alternative reality fictions, positing a universe in which the Axis powers won World War II. In Matt Ruff’s “The Mirage,” it’s not World War II that’s turned on its head but the War on Terror, with a fundamentalist America — a collection of rogue states and small theocracies — as the antagonists against a secular Islamic democracy called the Unit-

ed Arab States. In such a world, 9/11 never happened; rather, it is 11/9, in which Christian terrorists “hijacked four commercial passenger jetliners ... crash(ing) two of them into the Tigris and Euphrates World Trade Towers in downtown Baghdad.” After these attacks, the UAS captures Denver, then launches a wider military campaign on the East Coast, establishing a “Green Zone” in Washington, D.C. This is a terrific setup, using fiction to take events and tweak them, albeit recognizably. Yet for all the enthusiasm Ruff brings to his efforts, the illusion never feels completely real. Why? A couple of reasons, beginning with the proximity of the narrative to recent experience. I can buy Saddam Hussein as a John Gotti-like master of the underworld; that’s not so far from what he was in life. Then there’s LBJ, who survives to become an American Saddam, as well as the American insurgency led by, among others, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. Perhaps the main problem has to do with the origins of the story, which, Ruff notes in the book’s press materials, “started out as a TV pitch.” This is telling, because “The Mirage” recalls the sensation-starved aesthetics of Hollywood.

Mount St. Joseph Continued from F1 And so four boys from the Bronx arrived in September 2010 and a fifth a few months later, moving in with host families in this faded city of 16,500 and enrolling at a school that — with only 95 students — was barely staying afloat. Quickly, the basketball team was transformed, notching a record of 16-7 for the 2010-11 season, a stunning turnaround from the previous year’s 2-18. This season, the Mounties — as the team is known — are 15-1 and sailing toward the state playoffs. But the story of the Bronx boys in Rutland is not a uniformly happy one. Some students and parents are livid about their presence on the team, saying it deprives local players of court time and is an underhanded tactic by Mount St. Joseph to improve its team. This month, they beat their archrival — Rutland High School — for the first time in five years, a 62-49 game that drew more fans to Mount St. Joseph’s small gym than it had seen in years. “I’ve never seen that kind of school pride since I’ve been here,” said Matt Sanborn, a junior from Rutland who is captain of the Division 2 team.

‘Go back to New York’ Though the atmosphere that night was electric, nasty comments have flown on Facebook, at basketball games and elsewhere in town, directed not only at the players, but also at Benetatos and Cam Gilligan, a local woman who agreed to host four of the boys in a modest brick home here. Racial epithets have been directed at the boys, all five of whom are black, as well as taunts like “Go back to New York.” One hometown player has transferred to Rutland High, and other students have threatened to leave. On the website of the state’s largest newspaper, The Burlington Free Press, anonymous comments on a sports blog underscore the tensions, with heated debates over whether the Bronx players deserve to be there or are “imports” who have “pushed aside” local boys.

said. “It’s not like they purposely came up here to take time away from local kids.” Gilligan said her own son had lost playing time on the school football team years ago when two skilled players from other Vermont towns enrolled at the school and joined the team. “I told my kid, ‘Just work harder!’” she said. “When you get out of Rutland or out of Vermont, this little force field that’s around you, there’s going to be people like this all the time. So you’re not doing your kid a favor by making sure they’ll be the biggest fish in a little pond.”

‘That’s what they want me to do’

Caleb Kenna / New York Times News Service

Students at Mount St. Joseph Academy — including Shannon Murray, seated second from right, one of five transfer athletes from New York — use computers in the library in Rutland, Vt., on Feb. 8.

“You could say they feel the team is cheating,” Shannon Murray, one of the Bronx players, said the morning after the team’s victory against Rutland. “They don’t understand that it’s all 10 of us that make the team win,” said Jaskin Melendez, a quiet senior also from the Bronx. Matt Sanborn’s older brother, Tyler, who played on the team and is now at Georgetown University, wrote a letter to The Rutland Herald last month taking the critics to task. “Are there good people that will come to the side of these young men and recognize their record of good citizenship?” he wrote. “Or will those that bark about ‘local kids’ and ‘imports’ be the only ones heard in this city?” The team members say they are all exceedingly close — “We started as strangers and ended up family,” Shannon said — and are countering the attacks with actions instead of words. “We get back at them playing on

the court and performing on the court,” Matt said. “We’ve kind of held each other accountable to that.” To Paolo Zancanaro, the school principal, admitting the boys from the Bronx was about fulfilling the school’s mission, not giving its basketball team a star turn. Alumni and other donors agreed to contribute a portion of the $5,000-a-year tuition for them, plus room and board.

Russian folk tale gets modern retelling “The Snow Child” By Eowyn Ivey (Reagan Arthur/Little, Brown and Company, 389 pgs., $24.99) By Susan Salter Reynolds Newsday

“The Snow Maiden” is a Russian folk tale that has been told, written, sung and danced. Versions exist throughout Europe, but the original story refers to an aging couple, a woodcutter and his wife, who are unable to have a child. One day, they build a child from snow and the child comes alive. In her debut novel, “The Snow Child,” Eowyn Ivey has taken this tale and woven it into the lives of Mabel and Jack, a middle-aged couple who bur-

ied their stillborn child 10 years before the book opens in 1920. They have moved from Pennsylvania to start anew in Alaska. Mabel’s longing for a child cuts through her days. Jack doesn’t know how to reach her anymore. One night, they build a snowgirl. In the morning, she is gone. Footprints lead off into the woods. Ivey, a native Alaskan, knows how to make the frost glow in a window, how to describe light flickering through birches in a way that plays with the reader’s imagination. The book is full of reflections in dark windows,

lamplight, and alpenglow. Mabel remembers the story of the snow maiden, and asks her sister to send her the book. As she turns the pages, she sees her own story unfolding. Ivey dives deep into Jack and Mabel’s relationship; how does she keep this aspect of the novel so specific and intimate, even as she tells the story of every mother and father? It could be that because the story is familiar, we think — like Mabel — that we know how it will end. When the story takes a different turn, we are surprised. Ivey sets up the two most powerful forces in any story: fear and the potential for the miraculous. Fear vs. Miracle. Which will win?

“The last line in our mission statement is to create a just world, and we do that through providing opportunity,” Zancanaro said. “The guys who have come from away, they’ve experienced a lot of stuff in their life; they’ve seen a lot of stuff.” The school admits students from around the world, Zancanaro said, including China, Germany, South Korea and Spain this year. Pointing out that Vermont was one of the whitest states in the nation, he added, “The more open the hearts and minds of our students become, the more likely they’ll be catalysts for good.” Gilligan, a mail carrier whose three grown children attended Mount St. Joseph, said she thought the attacks were especially unfair considering that by coming to Rutland, the boys were escaping a desolate neighborhood and improving their chances in life. The home she shares with four of them is on a rural road across from pastures where sheep and horses graze. “They’re here to be safe,” she

Leggett, who said he had placed more than 60 boys in high schools outside New York over 25 years of coaching, had assumed that northern New England might be a good place for some of them — quiet, safe and with good schools. He said he was angry about the tensions in Rutland, the likes of which he had not seen in other towns where he had placed players. “I got to the point where I said, ‘I’m not sending no more kids there,’” he said. “But I caught myself. I said, ‘That’s what they want me to do.’” He added: “Society needs to know that we’re all the same. And they’re not going to stop me from doing that. I’m going to keep sending them there and keep sending them there.” Robert Cassell, who has been accepted at two colleges in New England and is waiting to hear from more, said he did not regret coming to Rutland. “I got away from just a bad environment,” he said. “I was so motivated, and my motivation was just to get out. So I’m happy that I came and everything turned out good and I’m graduating and going to college.” For now, he and the others are focused on Monday night, when they will face Rutland High in a rematch. They will compete in the playoffs after their regular season ends Feb. 24 and, they hope, capture the state championship for their division. “Everybody just had a goal when they joined the team,” Shannon said. “We made sure we all had the same goal, and that was to win a championship, and that’s why we’re here right now.”

To build a

Bend brewery

Petals comes off rose industry By Debbie Arrington McClatchy Newspapers

• Former Deschutes faces to add to booming craft-brewing industry with their yet-to-be-named brewery By Jordan Novet The Bulletin


tanding in an former transmission shop in Bend, a beersales guy and a beer-brewing guy scratched their heads and tried to piece together the story of how they’d become convinced they should build a new brewery. Dave Wilson and Larry Sidor had worked together for about six years at Bend’s Deschutes Brewery. The former was director of sales and marketing, the latter, its brewmaster. While they didn’t grow up together, the two do come from the same town, Olympia, Wash., Sidor said. They joined up in a small productdevelopment group at Deschutes, Wilson said, with assistance from outside branding wiz Paul Evers. The group’s work yielded limitedquantity, award-winning brews such as The Abyss stout and The Dissident sour ale. Now, after talking about the idea for three years — and 30 years after Sidor first got the itch to strike out on his own and make the beer he truly wanted to make — the trio are hurtling full-speed ahead toward the construction and opening of a brewery. It joins a dozen operating breweries in the region; theirs is one of six

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Future generations may never know the beauty of Diana, Princess of Wales; sniff Catalina in the sunshine; or fall for Beloved. For a century, devoted gardeners have appreciated the marvels of delicate and finicky hybrid roses and referred to them by name, like pets or family. The product of generations of breeding, the queen of flowers could act like a spoiled princess because its delicate blooms offered a special reward. In recent years, though, time-strapped homeowners have traded their big teas for compact shrub roses — utilitarian soldiers in the landscape that could cover ground without fuss. Our desire for the carefree — no-iron shirts, nowax floors, and now lowmaintenance yards — has brought the rose industry to a crossroads. “At some point, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. (Landscape) roses will be all you have; the beautiful, unique hybrid teas will be gone,” said Charlie Anderson, president of Weeks Roses, the only major company still creating new varieties of full-size roses. The flagging economy has compounded the rose industry’s troubles. See Roses / G3

Apps help make the most of a layover

Other breweries under development

By Julie Weed

In addition to 856 Brewing Co., at least five other breweries are building, or should be, later this year.

Layovers, canceled meetings or time before a flight home — whatever the reason, business travelers may find themselves with a few hours to spare. Some use the time to catch up on email or beat the “BrickBreaker” high score on their BlackBerry. But there is another option: exploring the local sights. And websites and smartphone applications have made that a lot easier. Alana Hoskin Smith works with consumer products and retail clients for Deloitte & Touche and is usually in one to two cities a week around the United States. She uses her extra time to visit local shops, boutiques and malls. “It’s a personal interest, and it helps me with my work,” she said. Hoskin Smith said she asks for neighborhood recommendations from the hotel concierge, her clients, and friends. But she also uses an app called Poynt that is available on all smartphones to find local retailers, restaurant reviews and reservations, as well as gas stations so she can fill up her rental car. The app uses the location of her phone to recommend places nearby and can display a map of how to get there. See Apps / G5

Across the U.S., looking for signs of recovery By Jennifer Medina New York Times News Service

MORENO VALLEY, Calif. — Tell people here that the economy is getting better and they look quizzical. Perhaps the numbers say so, but they can hardly see it in their own lives. A decade ago, this was a place where the middle class came to nurture its dreams — buying a house, enrolling children in a decent public school and shopping at any one of the dozens of malls dotting the landscape. But the bust hit hard here. This city — and the towns that surround it in Riverside County — became an emblem of the housing foreclosure crisis with one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. The numbers are improving now, though. The foreclosures have subsided. Unemployment has fallen from 17 percent in 2010 to 14.4 percent last month. But still, it is hard to detect a sense of optimism. Instead, a feeling of frustrated hope

could be heard in dozens of interviews here and in other towns like it across the country — in north-central Massachusetts, Belvidere, Ill., and Seattle. Each place has its own signs of an improving economy — a few new construction sites, even a batch of job openings. And, heaven knows, people want to be optimistic. But most of them, for the most part, are not feeling it yet. “I don’t see anybody doing anything for our country or our situation that is making much of a difference,” said Mark Bouldin, 36, who once made a decent living here in the suburban sprawl about 60 miles east of Los Angeles, working construction, renovating homes and doing small repairs. “I’ve looked for work every single day and there’s just nothing.” In 2009, with work drying up, he closed shop. Now, he is in school to become a minister at his church. The only thing that keeps him going, he said, is a belief in God. See Recovery / G3

A sign inside a Bombay Bowl restaurant in Denver breaks down Indian food into an assemblyline format.

Simplified Indian cuisine for a fast-food nation By John T. Edge New York Times News Service

DENVER — Alexis Sugrue’s T-shirt promised “Simple food. Endless choices.� Like the stylized elephant logo on her black ball cap and the cheerful stepby-step menu on the wall here at Bombay Bowl, the slogan could have been developed by a corporate branding office. (“All for me and naan for you,� read the paper sleeves for the Indian flatbread, browned in a conveyor-belt oven.) Her patter sounded like it was developed for Chipotle Grill, then filtered through the Indian subcontinent. “Would you like to make that a bowl, a plate or a roti roll?� asked Sugrue, ponytailed and pierced, as she served curried chickpeas and panini-pressed chicken sandwiches with vindaloo sauce from a steam table. “What kind of protein would you like? Would you like to spice that up or down?� Tucked between a strip mall Starbucks and a Jamba Juice, Bombay Bowl is one of a number of Indian restaurants whose owners are thinking big no matter how small they are. Borrowing the assembly-line format, customized service and chipper style of national chains like Subway, they plan to make dals, curries, chutneys and flatbreads into fast-food choices from coast to coast. None see curry houses as their competitors. “My competition is Panera, Qdoba and Chipotle,� said Amar Singh, owner of Bombay Bowl, which has only one location. Sharing his vision are the owners of restaurants like Merzi in Washington, D.C., and Chutney’s, with two locations in Cambridge, Mass. “We realize that some of this food can be intimidating to non-Indian consumers,� said Sanjay Kansagra, the proprietor of Chutney’s, where the slogan is “Savor the flavor.� “So we put them in control of their meal.� The menu boards and signs at his restaurant, in a mall off Harvard Square, encourage customers to “make it a value meal� by adding a side dish of a steamed dumpling called a momo to a paratha wrap girded with mashed potatoes and peas. Across the food court, customers lined up to get Subway value meals. As his employees — one in a turban, the others in black visors, all wearing orange polo shirts with the smiling, lipsmacking lime that is Chutney’s logo — folded rounds of naan over chicken tikka, he talked about the commissary he planned to build to provide the food for a total of 10 Chutney’s. Like many of the Indian entrepreneurs working in this segment, he conceived his business to satisfy a market need, not his passion for cooking. “I knew I wanted to serve food that would taste authentic,� said Kansagra, who opened three franchised sandwich shops before turning his attention to Indian fast food in 2009. “I also knew that if I

Chutney’s chef Sunil Nepali, removes chicken tikka skewers from a tandoori oven at Chutney’s in Cambridge, Mass. Chutney’s is one of a number of Indian restaurants whose owners are thinking big no matter how small they are, borrowing the assembly-line format of popular chains.

wanted to get American customers, the food did not necessarily have to be authentic.� Willingness to embrace the inauthentic served the entrepreneur well as he developed rice bowls topped with cubes of curried cheese and “nanini� sandwiches stuffed with lamb seekh kebab. Liberal interpretations of traditional foods also appeal to his customers. “This reminds me of Wow Bao,� said one, Monique Bellefleur, referring to a five-unit Chicago chain that advertises “hot Asian buns� and serves breakfast bao stuffed with egg, bacon and cheddar. Indian food, served fast, has been around since the 1970s. That’s when curry houses in larger cities across the United States began to serve steamtable lunches of lamb vindaloo, basmati rice and creamed spinach with cheese. Buffet service allowed consumers unfamiliar with foods from the subcontinent to survey the offerings and serve themselves toned-down versions of provincial cooking from Kashmir or Andhra Pradesh. Restaurateurs could serve large volumes of lunchtime customers quickly. These new restaurants are different. “Indian entrepreneurs are now trying to serve the American mainstream, whatever that is,� said Krishnendu Ray, an assistant professor of food studies at New York University. Some inspiration for these chains-in-the-making came from the subcontinent. Jumbo King, based in Mumbai, serves potato croquettes on hamburger-style buns at more than 40 fast-food outlets. Kati Zone, based in Bangalore, dishes up variants on Mexican quesadillas called “cheeserias� as well as masala-dusted French fries. In the United States, kati rolls and other flatbreadwrapped foods have been popular for at least a decade. Paratha Junction in Jersey City, N.J., and the Kati Roll Co., with locations in New York City and London, are two of the quick-service restaurant companies that specialize in portable Indian foods.

Many of these newfangled foods are being built on bases of relatively authentic Indian flatbreads. Merzi, one of these nascent chains, serves roti wraps, stuffed with “tandisserie� chicken, at its Washington prototype. (The menu translates the term as “tandooriseasoned chicken cooked rotisserie style.�) Veda, with three locations in Toronto, recently introduced rice-andbutter-chicken-stuffed “curritos,� which translate as curried burrito-style wraps. No matter how they label their menu boards, these places follow the same formula. “We have to break down traditional dishes into gravy and protein components so that our guests can gain control of their experience and build their own meal,� said Singh of Bombay Bowl, who has an undergraduate degree in finance and a master’s degree in business administration. “It’s all about deconstruction. We have to deconstruct Indian food so that it can appeal to the mainstream public. With deconstruction, everything is possible.� Customers like Sheila Ovenhouse, from Parker, Colo., a Denver suburb, follow menu instructions to build their dishes from unfamiliar ingredients. “Otherwise, I’d be overwhelmed,� she said one recent night. The menu has customers choose to have their meal in a bowl, on a salad or in a roti wrap, then “pick a healthy filling,� like grilled chicken or tofu. They then pick one of four sauces, including spinach and vindaloo, and one of four chutneys, including cool cucumber raita or a hot chililime chutney. “Look at Chipotle, look at Subway,� Singh said. “What they did was create an assembly line, where you could watch other people’s food being made and direct the making of your own food.� Last September, Chipotle Grill, which was built on Americanized Mexican foods, began applying that assembly line model to the foods of Southeast Asia. Their ShopHouse Kitchen, off Dupont

Circle in Washington, serves rice bowls, noodle bowls and versions of the Vietnamese sandwich banh mi. If Indian fast food is to reach a wider audience, Chipotle, with its quality ingredients and guest-defined customization, will likely prove the lodestar.

It would be easy to say that such developments dumb down Indian food, Ray said. But ethnicity is no longer defined in opposition to the mainstream. “A new Indian cosmopolitanism has emerged,� he said. “This new generation of Indians expects their customers to know what a dosa is. They expect their customers to figure out what a samosa is. They’re confident. They’re not

embarrassed by their accents. They’re not embarrassed by their foods.� “They’ve learned American fast food,� he added, “and they’ve made it their own.�

Continued from G1 Two years ago, rose giant Jackson & Perkins, which had annually shipped 10 million bushes nationwide, filed for bankruptcy protection. Many of the hybrid roses the company created — such as Diana, Catalina and Beloved — may soon disappear from the mass market as the supply of those bushes dries up. “Roses are viewed as an extravagance and they’re still trying to shed that stigma,” said Seth Taylor of Capital Nursery. “People have a very specific thing in mind when they think of a rose — it’s full and lush and romantic. That’s your traditional rose, what people love,” Taylor said. “The singlepetaled shrub roses are gaining a foothold with the public, but when my customers look at those flowers, they say ‘That’s not a rose.’ “ While gardeners may have visions of old-fashioned roses plucked from cottage gardens, their interest in growing them has waned, said Jolene Adams, incoming national president of the American Rose Society. “Many homeowners have had some experience — usually in their mother’s or grandmother’s gardens — so they’ll try growing roses,” she said. “But without sufficient knowledge (on how to care for them), the roses languish and do not grow to their full, beautiful potential. And they’re not replaced if they die.” Most of the nation’s rose bushes originate in California’s Central Valley. But unlike wheat or tomatoes, it takes several years to produce a single crop of rose bushes. Hybridizers typically will test 400,000 seedlings to find one or two new varieties. Once selected, a new hybrid will be developed for seven to 10 years before it’s released into the market. When ready for sale, field-grown bushes are 2 years old. Winter is prime rose-planting time. Valentine’s Day also spurs sales. But this month, local gardeners are finding limited selections at nurseries and home centers. “I observed dramatically fewer roses in the nurseries this year,” said T.J. David, cofounder of the World Peace Rose Garden in Sacramento’s Capitol Park. “The financial ills of the rose growers will cause a slowdown in the number of new varieties of roses that are available for sale,” he said. “Since growers make plans years in advance, it may take a year or two to see the full impact.” The annual wholesale value of California’s rose crop dropped 55 percent from a high of $61.05 million in 2003 to $27.20 million in 2010, according to nursery industry expert Hoy Carman, a retired University of California-Davis professor. “The whole nursery industry is down,” Carman said. “In 2008, sales just plummeted.” Said Adams of the Rose Society: “Roses are not the first thing homeowners think of when they want to plant a garden. Competition with other choice plants is fierce. ... The industry is going to have to change — and supply roses that the customers can use in the landscape.” Most major rose growers have gone bankrupt or consolidated with other wholesale nurseries. Weeks Roses, in Wasco near Bakersfield, Calif., survived its bankruptcy and is now owned by Indiana-based Gardens Alive. On 1,000 leased acres, Weeks will harvest about 3 million bushes this year. During grafting and harvest season, it employs almost 400 people. Jackson & Perkins, acquired by South Carolina-based J&P Park Acquisitions, no longer develops and grows new roses. Before bankruptcy, the company farmed 5,000 acres in Wasco with 20,000 bushes per acre. Without buyers, many of those bushes were burned. Once a breeder goes bankrupt, its roses usually disappear with it. Rose patents — good for 18 to 20 years — may be sold, but budwood and mother plants are lost. Many Jackson & Perkins roses are now on the endangered list. “Some will be preserved,” Anderson said. “But a lot of varieties were lost; there was no budwood to collect (to create new hybrid bushes). Most will just disappear into the ether.”

Continued from G1 But Sidor, Wilson and Evers’ brewery stands out among the others under development because of the depth of their experience. Combined, they have spent 75 years in brewing and its related fields. Before moving to Bend, Sidor worked in various positions for 23 years at Olympia Brewing Co. and ran a winery in Yakima, Wash., with his wife, Lisa. He is a past president of the Master Brewers Association of the Americas, established in 1887 and based now in Minnesota. With the new brewery, Sidor wants to use open fermenters and make some beers popular in Europe, such as Märzen lager. He also wants to brew ginger ale and root beer. Oh, and he wants everything to be measured using the metric system. Wilson said he grew up working in restaurants, including a family pizza place in Olympia. He also worked for beer distributors in Washington. Five years ago, he was hired away from Deschutes to be vice president of sales and marketing for 21st Amendment Brewery in San Francisco. Evers started the Bend advertising agency tbd in 1997. The company’s president and chief creative director, he’s done packaging work for Deschutes, 21st Amendment and Odell

Recovery Continued from G1 “Everybody is fighting for the little scraps of whatever they can get,” he said. Even in places where fresh jobs have sprouted, some stubborn gloom persists. Take Belvidere, an old manufacturing town not far from the Wisconsin border, where unemployment had reached 17.4 percent, among the highest in Illinois. The Chrysler assembly plant in Belvidere announced this month that it would hire 1,800 workers by summer to support the production of a new model. One local newspaper said it was “the biggest and best news we’ve had in the Rock River Valley in years, perhaps ever.” Today the factory employs more than 2,700 people, up from just 200 when the company emerged from bankruptcy in 2009. People are flowing in from all over the region — the company said it had to stop accepting applications after more than 7,500 were submitted for the new positions. Donald Hardt, 60, has been out of work since August, when he was laid off by a machine products supplier in Wisconsin because of downsizing. On Wednesday, he was at the Chrysler plant to fill out an application. But other than Chrysler’s good news, there are not many signs of improvement in the area. “I’ve been looking every day since August,” Hardt said. “I’ve been seeing minimum wage jobs, but you can’t make a living on minimum wage.” In so many ways, the sluggish economy permanently changed people’s lives and attitudes. Holly Kiluk, 47, has become used to the seasonal ebbs of her husband’s job as an asphalt worker and feels her family is “one of the few that are getting by,” in her town of Ashby, Mass., near the New Hampshire line northwest of Boston. She has made it work in part by bargain hunting. She buys men’s sweatshirts that can perform double duty — she shares them with her grandson who lives with her. And when gas prices rose, she moved her five children to a school closer to home. Kiluk’s daughter, Katie, said that few of her friends

have found well-paying jobs, and many have joined the military instead. And few of those returning from Iraq have landed a job. For the most part, Holly Kiluk blames President Barack Obama for the economic stagnation. “I don’t think he’s helped us. I think he picked up a mess and made it bigger,” she said, adding that she was particularly disappointed by the stimulus. “It was all a gimmick, all a farce.” Still, she has little faith in the Republican Party, either. “Every candidate wants to cut this, cut that,” she said. “There isn’t anything I agree with, with the people running now. I wish it were different.” For many of those interviewed, politics seemed almost beside the point. While some faulted the president, others felt he does not get enough credit for improving the sluggish economy, even if those improvements have yet to trickle down to their own lives. Even those who hope to elect a Republican to the White House this fall say they doubt much will change. “I don’t know who to blame, and I don’t know if it much matters,” said Kim Barron, 48, of Moreno Valley. Barron and her husband once made a living buying and fixing used cars. But two years ago the work vanished and it got too expensive to gas up the cars. Lately, her only work has come with occasional odd jobs. “I pray and look for work every day, but I just don’t see it coming to me or anyone I know.” She encourages her daughter to move to Colorado, where her sister has been able to keep a steady job in a medical office. “Maybe things are better anywhere else outside of here,” she said. In Seattle, things have been a bit better for Kevin Long, who calls himself “fallout of the great recession.” After working as an executive for Washington Mutual for years, he lost his job soon after Chase took over the bank. Long was unemployed for a year, but with plenty of savings he viewed the time as “terrific,” as he spent more time with his children. Long was a self-proclaimed soccer dad when he found a job as the executive director of Seattle United, a nonprofit youth soccer club. “I feel that things are starting to turn a corner,” he said, but he had a difficult time pinpointing the evidence. “I don’t know if it’s tangible.”

equipment they’ll need. And they have some of the licenses required to run a commercial brewery.

What they do not have yet is a company name. Documents are filed under a placeholder name, 856 Brewing Co., named after the address of Evers’ company, 856 N.W. Bond St. They half-jokingly call it the yet-to-be-named brewery. With or without a name, they have already done a lot. Sidor announced in June that he was leaving Deschutes. By then 856 had raised more than $1.1 million, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. Of the eight private investors, about half come from Bend, Sidor and Wilson figured. Others hail from California, Colorado, Washington and Ohio, they said. With money matters taken care of, Sidor and his partners looked for a building. In an interview last year, Sidor said the group preferred an existing building for their brewery, to keep costs down and expedite the process. “I’m in a hurry to get (it) going,” he said in June. By September, he and the others had found their site, at 50 S.W. Division St., in the middle of Bend, bordered by the Bend Parkway and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway tracks. They had Bend architect Roy Kroll draw up rough plans. Then they met with city planners to discuss development issues. The building — which they leased for five years in January, along with locking in a purchase price — most recently housed an AAMCO transmission shop.


“We’re basically here forever, either rent or buy, one of the two,” Sidor said on Tuesday. In November, the three embarked down the road of getting all the regulatory permissions they needed to operate a commercial brewery — a license to brew from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, a food-processing license from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, state approval to operate a boiler, a brewer’s notice from the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. Earlier this month, the principals chose SunWest Builders of Redmond as a contractor. They received a demolition permit from the city, and by Tuesday, construction workers had cut out long slices of the floor, to allow room for drains and other infrastructure. Soil was piled up by the trenches like hills beside a river. Transmission bays were being cleared to make way for a brew house. With their building permit secured on Wednesday, construction could begin. The building will get a new façade, a cooler for hops, a desk for Sidor, a kitchen, bathrooms, a cellar and plenty of brewing equipment, according to plans on file with the city of Bend. The goal is to open the brewery and tasting room in June. “It’s gonna be nothing but elbows around here,” Sidor said on Tuesday. “You come back a week from now, and it should look dramatically different.” — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

Apps Continued from G1 A similar app is AroundMe, which lists nearby banks, gas stations, hospitals, restaurants, hotels and other places, without user reviews. For business travelers abroad, the free app World Customs and Cultures, available on iPhones, iPads and iPods, offers a quick briefing on local mores. Sections cover greetings, personal space, laws, gender issues, and local gestures and taboos. Travelers can also use a variety of language translation software and apps for their laptops and smartphones. Some require the phrase to be typed in, while others have speech recognition that works to varying degrees. Most, like Google Translate, are free. Globetrotters loyal to a favorite brand of travel book, like Fodor’s, Frommer’s, Lonely Planet or Rough Guides, will find that their websites are also filled with information on destinations worldwide. Another option is to search the Internet for “Top 10 things to do in Barcelona” or another city. That will net a variety of lists with suggestions. And travelers can compare a few of the lists to discover the most commonly recommended sites. Travelers with the new iPhone can ask Siri for recommendations, like “Are there any museums nearby?” Siri will respond with a list of museums close to their current location. Directions are also available. The Siri service can also answer specific questions like, “Is there a Cuban restaurant near me?” or “How do I get to the airport?” But it does not understand general queries like, “I have four hours to spend in San Francisco, what should I do?” For crowd-sourced local information, travelers can go to

the free Trover website to see photos of nearby sights as well as stores and restaurants. The website was introduced last year and now includes 100,000 photos from 160 countries artfully arranged from closest to the location specified to farther out with an icon of a person walking, on a skateboard, in a car, etc., to indicate how far away they are. It is also available on Android phones and the iPhone.

the walking tours, which focus mainly on London, Paris, Athens, Rome, Florence and Venice. Travelers who are often on the road may be not be interested in sightseeing, but still want a break from the hotel-taxi-meeting treadmill. Coworking, or “hot desk,” spaces in some cities offer business people workspaces and couches, meeting rooms and basic office equipment to share. But the biggest attraction may be the other people there. Liz Dunn, a real estate developer who travels from Seattle to London several times a year, said she appreciated meeting the local startup employees and designers when she

uses the phone’s GPS function to show where the closest free and paid Wi-Fi hotspots are and includes more than 650,000 locations in 144 countries. For those who like guided tours, the app HearPlanet, for iPhones and Android phones, provides audio files describing local sights, like the Empire State Building, that travelers can listen to as they gaze, walk or ride past in a taxi. Rick Steves’ Audio Europe offers free self-guided audio walking tours for the iPod, iPhone and Android, as well as travel podcasts from Steves’ NPR radio program. A slide show accompanies

Local residents and visitors can buy an ongoing membership or pay for a day pass at the Hub. “It’s funky and affordable,” Dunn said, “and I feel like I’m embedding myself in the entrepreneurial nature of the city.” The experience has even inspired her to open a similar gathering place, called the Agnes Underground, last month in Seattle. And for the traveler who


may not have enough time to see the sights in town, GateGuru, for the iPhone and Android phones, provides information on the food and retail outlets at airports. Then, there are travelers like Mark Patricof, managing partner at Mesa Global, a media and entertainment financial and strategic advisory firm, who relies on old-fashioned techniques, like asking business associates or serendipity, to find some out-of-theway spot in town. “When all you see is the inside of the airport, the hotel and the antiseptic meeting rooms when you’ve traveled so far around the world, it’s just a shame,” he said. On a recent trip to Shanghai, Patricof said he used a map to navigate the city on foot in search of the Propaganda Poster Art Center, which turned out to be a few rooms in the basement of a nearly deserted cinderblock apartment complex, guarded by a nonEnglish speaking watchman. “Trying to find it was a little daunting, but inside was a gorgeous display of 50 years of propaganda posters, and I had it all to myself,” he said. On the way back to his hotel, he stopped at street vendors for pancakes with hot chilies, and duck blood soup. “The whole adventure, the uncertainty of it, was wonderful,” he said. Patricof advised travelers to think about the sites they might want to visit, but also to take advantage of opportunities that arise. On a recent trip to Mumbai, Patricof stopped his taxi so he and a colleague could walk down a famous shopping street they were passing. “We were staring at all the fascinating things they were selling,” he said, “and the shoppers were all staring at the tourists in business suits.”

Crude news: Never before have gas prices risen so high so early By Ronald D. White Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — U.S. motorists have seen the national average for regular gasoline rise above $3.50 a gallon in just three different years, but it has never happened this early. The national average hit $3.523 a gallon, the Energy Department said this week, up 4.1 cents from a week earlier. Analysts said the early price shocker is likely a sign that pain at the pump will rise to some of the highest levels ever this year. “This definitely sets the stage, potentially, for much higher prices later this year,” said Brian Milne, refined-fuels editor for Telvent DTN, a commodity information services firm. “There’s a chance that the U.S. average tops $4 a gallon by June, with some parts of the country approaching $5 a gallon.” Even in 2008, the year that average gasoline prices hit records above $4 nationally and in California during the summer, the U.S. average didn’t climb above $3.50 until April 21, according to the Energy Department’s weekly survey of service stations. The $3.50 mark also was breached last

year, but not until March 6. This time, the dubious milestone was hit weeks before prices usually rise because of refineries typically shutting down for spring maintenance, and weeks before the prices rise again when states switch from less expensive winter blends of gasoline to more complicated and more expensive summer blends. California motorists aren’t likely to summon much sympathy for drivers in other states. They are paying an average of $3.835 for a gallon of regular gas, up 7.7 cents from a week earlier. In the past, the state’s average had never topped the $3.80 mark before March. And February is usually a month when prices fall. There are plenty of reasons for the high prices, and lots of reasons to expect a big price surge in the spring, said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst for Oil Price Information Service. “Early February crude oil prices are higher than they’ve ever been on similar calendar dates through the years, and the price of crude sets the standard for gasoline prices,” Kloza said. In addition, several refineries have been mothballed in

recent months, he said, and some of those refineries “represented the key to a smooth spring transition from winterto-spring gasoline.” The annual change in gasoline formulas is mandated by pollution-fighting regulations. Some cities, including Los Angeles and New York, already are closing in on $4 a gallon, said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for, a website that tracks gasoline prices. The high cost has inspired considerable disgust among drivers like Stanley Moore, who paid $3.85 a gallon at an Arco station in San Pedro, Calif. Moore, a child-welfare social worker, was on his mobile phone at the gas station Monday, patting pockets for a pen and a scrap of paper to write down a name, until he realized he could just write the name in the grime on the hood of his gray 1999 Nissan Sentra; it was that dirty. “I used to wash it pretty often, take a little pride in how it looked,” said Moore, who thinks he last had it washed shortly after Labor Day. “All that money goes right into the gas tank now.

S D  Repairing Performance with a clean conscience older car might not be worth it By Paul Brand Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

We own a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid with just Q: less than 100,000 miles on it. The check-engine and IMA (integrated motor assist) lights came on, so we took it to the dealer. The mechanics said nothing was wrong but to come back if the warning lights came back on. Well, they did two weeks later. The dealer said that the battery needs to be replaced at a cost of about $3,000. It looks like the book value of the car is $4,000 to $5,000, but that doesn’t include the battery replacement. At what point do you throw in the towel and replace the car — when the cost of the repair is about the same as the value of the car? The lithium-ion battery pack in your Honda was warranted for eight years or 80,000 miles, except in California and several other states where the mandated warranty was 10 years or 150,000 miles. I’d be inclined to encourage the dealer to ask Honda for some level of customer goodwill help. All they can do is say no. Looking at your basic question regarding repair cost vs. replacement vehicle, I can’t argue with choosing to replace the vehicle when the cost of repairs approaches the value of the vehicle. Repairs do not enhance vehicle value, thus are not recoverable. Putting major repair dollars toward the purchase of a replacement vehicle probably makes more sense in the long run, particularly if you’re planning to trade in your older vehicle. In most cases a dealer can repair — in this case replace the hybrid battery pack — for less than you can, so the dealer may value your trade a bit higher than someone purchasing it at retail and facing the cost of battery replacement.


By Terry Box

The 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid, a hybrid version of Porsche’s polarizing four-door sedan, is wickedly quick and sips less fuel than a V-6 Toyota Camry.

The Dallas Morning News

Rich boys get the best toys. Had I known that as I stumbled through North Texas State in the 1970s — still on my ambitious six-year degree plan — I might have signed up for Wealth 101. Instead, I opted for words — and now I drive a Ford. Not that I’m complaining. But I fit really REVIEW well in Ferraris and Porsches and Audis, and I could happily own a small garage of high-end haulers that make little sense in the dour, doomsday 21st century. We could call it Toys 4 Box or something equally cute that would appeal to my new friends with yachts, personal assistants and multiple SEC violations. I would probably make space there for the 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid, a six-figure vehicle that shares about as much in common with a Prius as I do with the mildly possessed high priest of football, Tom Brady. They — and we — function similarly, and that’s about it. Most of you know the controversial Panamera, the large four-door sedan that is Porsche’s second-best selling vehicle and easily its most polarizing. The dark metallic-blue Panamera I had recently still looked pathologically disproportionate — as if someone had left it in a wind tunnel too long and everything got shoved back over its rear wheels. Wide and relatively low, the

Porsche via McClatchy-Tribune News Service

2012 Porsche Panamera Hybrid Base price: $95,00 As tested: $108,225 Type: Rear-wheel-drive, four-passenger, full-size hatchback sedan Engine: Supercharged 3-liter V-6 with 333 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque, plus an electric motor with 47 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque Mileage: 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway

Panamera featured a long, prominent hood and curving top that kind of, sort of resembled a 911 coupe. Built on a platform shared with the Cayenne SUV, it was fitted with huge doors, a long, ungainly wheelbase and a

rounded hatchback — a combination that never quite evoked the muscular 911 for me. At least my Panamera rolled on meaty 25 5/45 tires mounted on 19-inch 911-style alloy wheels. The real attractions beckon beneath the hood and on the other side of those big slabsided doors. As billed, the Panamera Hybrid couples a supercharged 3liter V-6 borrowed from cousin Audi with a 47-horsepower electric motor. The result is a wickedly quick two-ton lump with 333 horsepower and 428 poundfeet of torque that sips less fuel than a V-6 Camry. The pudgy 4,400-pound Panamera is rated at 22 miles per gallon in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Even better, the whispering, cross-dressing sedan cuts and scrambles like a real Porsche, zipping to 60 in a solid 5.7

seconds. Like most hybrids, the Panamera relies on the instant torque of its electric motor to get moving. Mine also had an automatic stop/start system that turned the V-6 off at red lights, restarting it instantly when more power was summoned. Porsche says the Panamera can cruise silently up to 50 mph on the electric motor alone. I was never able to coax more than 10 or 15 mph out of the motor before the audacious Audi engine sprung to life. But I also drove the car exclusively in “sport” mode, mostly to compensate for the fact that I’m short. Ignore all the technology. Punch the Panamera, and it leaps away from stops with enough vigor to push you hard into the seat, snapping off satisfying, Euro-style 6,000-rpm shifts with its eight-speed

automatic. Though certainly not as crisp in corners as a 911, the Panamera lives up to its Porsche crest, attacking curves with surprising glee. Lean is minimal in “sport” mode, and the car maintains its enormous composure even drifting through high-speed corners. Like the Audi A7, the Panamera provides seating for just four in its commodious cabin, limited by an extravagant console that extends from the dashboard to the back seats. But the gray leather interior was still pleasant — sort of like drifting along in a rain cloud. Nicely finished door panels with leather tops and centers complemented gray leather seats with supportive bolsters and perforated centers. So who will buy the Panamera Hybrid, a car that costs $20,000 more than an entry-level V-6 Panamera? I would guess stockbrokers in San Francisco or dizzy, driving-while-blond entertainment types in L.A. and maybe conflicted corporate titans in Denver. None of which matters to most of us. Here is what’s important: The Panamera is the second serious high-performance hybrid in the luxury segment, joining the more affordable Infiniti M Hybrid. Both are really good sparkers and fun drivers. And since hybrids will likely be the main alternative powertrain in the near future, it’s kind of reassuring that they now run the gamut from deadly dull to inspired.


I have a 1999 Pontiac Q: Montana with 129,000 miles on it. Occasionally the upshifts are hard or harsh. On the next trip, it will be smooth. When it’s acting up, I baby it and take it super easy on the gas. I’m guessing maybe a transmission solenoid or valve sticks once in a while. Is there any damage from the occasional “thunk” upshifts? I do change the transmission fluid and filter on a regular basis. Start the diagnosis by checking for fault codes with a scan tool. If the transmission operates in the “limp” or “fault” mode, hydraulic line pressure is increased to prevent slippage, which will make the upshifts noticeably more firm. Hard or firm shifts may not feel good, but they don’t hurt the transmission. Intermittent harsh shifts could be due to a higher than normal transmission fluid temperature causing limpmode operation. Another possible cause is dirt or debris in a hydraulic passage, accumulator or the control valve body. I’d try adding half a can of SeaFoam Trans-Tune to help clean and de-gunk hydraulic passages and components. Next time this occurs, pull over safely, shut off the ignition, then restart the engine. If transmission shift quality returns to normal, a scan tool should identify the trouble code related to the problem.

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant Are there whirlpools in the ocean? If so, are they a threat to ships? —Gerald Brown, Shalimar, Fla.

Whirlpools do exist, both on the surface of the water and submerged. Most aren’t powerful enough to capsize a sizable vessel, but they can pose a threat to inexperienced boaters. Many have a vortex that pulls downward. One example is Japan’s Naruto whirlpool, which draws daily crowds of onlookers. Another, near Norway, is the Saltstraumen Maelstrom, said to be the world’s strongest. Not far away is the Moskstraumen, made infamous by Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne. The whirlpool Garofalo (which probably inspired the mythical Charybdis) is located in the waters between Sicily and mainland Italy.

NICOTROL Inhaler, when used as part of a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program, may help you quit smoking by reducing your urge to smoke.1

For more information on NICOTROL Inhaler, visit Indication NICOTROL Inhaler is indicated as an aid to smoking cessation for the relief of nicotine withdrawal symptoms. It is available only by prescription and is recommended for use as part of a comprehensive behavioral smoking cessation program. Important Safety Information Do not use the NICOTROL Inhaler if you are hypersensitive or allergic to nicotine, menthol, or to any ingredient in the product. If you have cardiovascular, peripheral vascular, or bronchospastic diseases including asthma or chronic pulmonary disease, talk to your doctor about using the NICOTROL Inhaler. If you are under a doctor’s care for any condition, you should first discuss with your doctor the potential risks of using this product. You should stop smoking completely before using the NICOTROL Inhaler. You should not smoke or use other nicotine-containing products while under treatment with the NICOTROL Inhaler.

GCB, the show’s heroine (Leslie Bibb) is a former mean girl who returns home to her mom (Potts) in Dallas, poorer but nicer. “She has to start all over again. That’s an age-old hero’s journey,” says Harling. “A lot of people have to do that these days. Of course, we’re doing it in a more comedic way.” Starting all over again, 21 years after it went off the air following a 14-season run, is Dallas. Veterans Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and Linda Gray are reprising their roles as, respectively, J. R., Bobby, and Sue Ellen Ewing, and they’re joined by the next generation of rival Ewing sons ( Jesse Metcalfe and Josh Henderson). Everyone still lives on or near the ranch at Southfork, and not much has changed—“I am sick to death of this family devouring itself over money!” yells Bobby in the pilot episode— except that now J. R. and Bobby both have Andy Rooney–esque eyebrows. (“I want to sneak up with manicure scissors and trim them,” jokes Gray.) Cynthia Cidre, the writer and executive producer for nouveau Dallas, notes that everything old is new again. “The show deals with land, lust, betrayal, and sibling rivalry—themes that have been in literature since Greek drama,” she says. That may be, but Gray relishes the changes time has brought. During the first goround, “the men would do horrible things, and the women would react,” she says. “Now Sue Ellen is powerful and richer than J. R. She’s a Mama Grizzly fighting for her son.” Let the conniving begin. 10 • February 19, 2012

Revive Your New Year’s Resolutions Follow these tips for successful change By Jennifer Ackerman • Illustration by Zohar Lazar


Accept the busy, stressed person you are today. Accord-

ing to McGonigal, people often fail to make change because they imagine their future selves with Herculean powers of self-control. “Don’t wait for the efficient person who resists all temptation to show up. Take action now and understand that you’re human and you’ll have setbacks,” she says.


Pick your battles.

Studies suggest that glucose in the bloodstream fuels willpower; when levels are low, it’s harder to stay the course. Likewise, engaging in acts of self-control all day depletes glucose. So prioritize and try to limit the number of times you need to exert your willpower each day.



f you’re like millions of americans, you woke up on jan. 1

and vowed to turn over a new leaf—run three miles a day, stop smoking, lose a pound a week, save $200 a month, whatever. You vividly imagined a better you. And for a while it seemed to work. But then, come late January or early February, you stopped jogging. You snuck a cigarette. You went on a QVC spending spree. In other words, you slipped back into your old habits. It doesn’t have to be that way. Willpower is not the brute strength to resist temptation, but “the ability to do what you really want to do when part of you really doesn’t want to do it,” says Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist at Stanford University and the author of The Willpower Instinct. “It’s remembering what you really want, your bigger goals, in the face of your immediate desires.” And it’s a skill you can strengthen. Science may not yet have devised a surefire formula for keeping every resolution, but it has lately revealed some tips to help all of us make real and lasting change.

Rethink your environment.

“When your surroundings stay the same, so do your ingrained habits,” says Miriam Nelson, director of the John Hancock Center on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Prevention at Tufts University. “But when you tweak your environment to make healthy choices easy, your habits automatically change.” Trying to lose weight? Get rid of the junk food and store bowls of cut-up veggies in the fridge. Looking to build muscle? Keep dumbbells in the TV room and do bicep curls while you watch.


Start small.

“Many people are too ambitious in their goals,” says Nelson. Instead of vowing to get fit, try building a 10-minute walk into your day. “If you stick with that goal for a week, congratulate yourself and up the ante the following week.”

Anticipate challenges—the plate of cookies at the office, the fatigue that makes you want to skip the gym—and imagine how you’ll overcome them.


Envision how you’ll achieve your goal. Visualization—

the way an Olympic athlete imagines the perfect pole vault or high dive—boosts your odds of success. A 2011 study from McGill University in Montreal found that among people who set a goal of eating more fruit, those who pictured when, where, and how they would buy, prepare, and eat it consumed twice as much as those who didn’t. By the same token, anticipate challenges— the plate of cookies at the office, the end-of-day fatigue that makes you want to skip the gym— and imagine how you’ll overcome them.

Finally, a cell phone that’s… a phone with rates as low as $3.75 per week!

“Well, I finally did it. I finally decided to enter the digital age and get a cell phone. My kids have been bugging me, my book group made fun of me, and the last straw was when my car broke down, and I was stuck by the highway for an hour before someone stopped to help. But when I went to the cell phone store, I almost changed my mind. The phones are so small I can’t see the numbers, much less push the right one. They all have cameras, computers and a “global-positioning” something or other that’s supposed to spot me from space. Goodness, all I want to do is to be able to talk to my grandkids! The people at the store weren’t much help. They couldn’t understand why someone wouldn’t want a phone the size of a postage stamp. And the rate plans! They were complicated, confusing, and expensive… and the contract lasted for two years! I’d almost given up when a friend told me about her new Jitterbug phone. Now, I have the convenience and safety of being able to stay in touch… with a phone I can actually use.”

Affordable plans that I can understand – and no contract to sign! Unlike other cell phones, Jitterbug has plans that make sense. Why should I pay for minutes I’m never going to use? And if I do talk more than I plan, I won’t find myself with no minutes like my friend

Sometimes I think the people who designed this phone and the rate plans had me in mind. The phone fits easily in my pocket, and flips open to reach from my mouth to my ear. The display is large and backlit, so I can actually see who is calling. With a push of a button I can amplify the volume, and if I don’t know a number, I can simply push “0” for a friendly, helpful operator that will look it up and even dial it for me. The Jitterbug also reduces background noise, making the sound loud and clear. There’s even a dial tone, so I know the phone is ready to use.

Above all, be patient.

The good news: Over time, your resolution will start to require less effort. A recent study by researchers at University College London found that participants took, on average, 66 days to form a new habit, whether it was eating fruit at lunch or running 15 minutes a day (the range was 18 to 254 days, depending on the degree of difficulty). Even better: A single setback in no way predicted failure. “It’s how you recover from a setback that counts,” says McGonigal. “If you splurge or miss a day, just get right back on track.” Jennifer Ackerman is the coauthor of The Social Network Diet: Change Yourself, Change the World.

Read her first online-only column at


n my early 30s, i copied


a George Orwell quotation and tucked it into my wallet: “At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” A promise? Or a warning? That depended on how I lived my life. Orwell was right. Even in the faces of strangers, you can tell who has spent more time laughing than frowning, who rolled with life’s tumbles and who never recovered. Like maps that are repeatedly redrawn, our faces track the march of time. Line up photos of the same face at different ages and a life story unfolds like a graphic novel. This is my story in five faces. Age 12 I’m in seventh grade, and I want to be anybody else. Specifically, I want to be Aretha Franklin. I’m convinced a Toni home permanent and a neighbor’s artistry will transform me into Ashtabula’s Queen of Soul. She cuts my long, straight hair and wraps what’s left around small pink curlers. She squirts the smelly chemicals all over my head. My scalp burns for what feels like 12 hours. I think I look amazing. Not Mom. She takes one look at me and collapses on the sofa, fanning herself with her apron. The next week, I line up for my school portrait wearing my new Afro and pointy collars as big as window shades. Before the flash goes off, my gym teacher shakes her head and says, “Girl, does your mother know what you did to your hair?” Age 21 I am an asthmatic, and a prescription drug makes my face puff out. I

eyes. I couldn’t care less. I’m starring in Act II of my own life. I’m a newspaper columnist, a woman paid to give her opinion. After a decade as a single mother, I’ve fallen in love, too, with a man who has the nerve to push back on independent me. I insist I don’t need him to wait on me—ever. He sits me down in his kitchen and says, “You are not giving up your right to vote or to own property if you let me make you a cup of coffee.” For the first time in 45 years, I am speechless. I want to be younger but only because my heart aches with a single truth: When you meet the love of your life in middle age, the odds are you won’t celebrate a golden wedding anniversary together.

My Story in Five Faces No, it never launched a thousand ships or made it onto Mount Rushmore, but this face has seen (and laughed) a lot

Age 45

am so self-conscious that if someone points a camera at me, I pucker up and cross my eyes. I want to be less dependent on others’ opinions of me. I’m failing miserably. A fellow staffer on our college newspaper wears a leg brace and a special shoe with a five-inch platform. He walks with a limp, and he hates the goofy pictures of me. I don’t know this until he surreptitiously shoots this photo and presents it to me as a gift. “If I looked like you,” he says, softly, “I’d smile all the time.” Then he walks away. Thirty-three years later, this photo still hangs in my home office as a reminder to get over myself.

Age 37

Age 53

Age 37 After 15 years of writing freelance stories at my kitchen table, I get my first newspaper job. Weeks later, I’m a newly single mother living with my two kids in an apartment half the size of the house we’d called home. I want to be fearless, but I am scared to death. See the fear in my eyes? I am also stronger than I know. Like so many women, I have to learn, one crazy day at a time, that if I act brave, the courage will come. And it does. Age 45 Crinkles fan out from both of my

Age 53 I’m three years past Orwell’s deadline. The worry lines have won the territory between my brows. Starbursts punctuate my eyes. That’s what a lifetime of grinning brings. There are worse fates. I’ve not succumbed to any tinkering. No surgery or needles for me. This is not to judge other women. I’m just not big on volunteering for pain. My husband is taking this picture, which explains my smile. He still makes my coffee. “Honey,” I say to him over a recent game of Scrabble. “When I’m old, will you still love me?” He doesn’t even look up. “Honey,” he says. “You’re already old. And I still love you.” We laugh like crazy, and I don’t want to be anybody but me. February 19, 2012 • 15
