Prineville explores options for water

Marine honored for valor

By Duffie Taylor The Bulletin

PRINEVILLE — With another data center moving to Prineville, the city is ratcheting up its efforts to ensure a long-term water supply. On Tuesday, city councilors awarded a $201,652 contract to Abbas Well Drilling for two test wells above an underground aquifer near the Prineville airport. The Terrebone company also drilled a similar exploratory well near that location and another in northern Prineville near the Northridge subdivision last December. The test wells near the airport allow officials to map the aquifer, which is believed to hold enough water to serve the city’s urban growth boundary buildout for the next 20 to 30 years. It will also give information about the area’s water chemistry and geological strata so that officials can pinpoint the best location for another production well. City Engineer Eric Klann said so far the results of the study have provided the necessary stepping-stones to move forward. The exploratory well drilled in December produced about 350 gallons per minute, which is considered a good well for Prineville, but Klann said the spot for a production well can’t be determined until the extent of the aquifer is mapped. Though test wells cost about $100,000 each, Klann said that figure is significantly less than a $400,000 production well. When officials do decide to drill a well for production, they want to aim for the center of the aquifer — where output is highest — and they have to know the aquifer’s scope before doing that. “With each test well, we gather a great deal of information. With the next two test wells, we feel we’ll be within reach of our goal,” Klann said. Klann said the other test well recently drilled in the city’s northern section produced less satisfying results.

• Kyle Thompson is awarded a Bronze Star for his actions in Afghanistan By Nick Grube

Thompson graduated from La Pine High School in 2005, went to Iraq in 2008, completing his tour in 2009 and extending his enlistment so he could go to Afghanistan.

The Bulletin

A U.S. Marine corporal from La Pine who lost his left eye in an explosion while fighting in Afghanistan was awarded a Bronze Star for Valor last week. Kyle Thompson, 25, of the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., earned the medal for what the military deemed “courageous actions” during two firefights in which his patrol was ambushed and he led his troops to safety. Both incidents occurred in Afghanistan’s dangerous Helmand province, and each one happened before Thompson was injured by the improvised explosive device that ultimately ended his military career. He received a Purple Heart after that injury. He also received a Purple Heart for an earlier incident involving an IED that struck his armored vehicle. “I’m very proud of him,” Thompson’s grandfather Tom Teela said. “He’s lost an eye and

about five teeth. … So he’s had quite an experience over there.” Teela, who lives just south of Sunriver, said he’s probably the reason his grandson went into the military. Teela was a Marine who fought in World War II and, like Thompson, was awarded a Purple Heart after being injured in battle. “He’s a gung-ho Marine, and he didn’t go for just being a rifleman like me,” Teela said of his grandson. “He had to be in the best unit.” Thompson graduated from La

Pine High School in 2005 and was trained in reconnaissance after joining the Marines. He went to Iraq in 2008, completing his tour in 2009. He extended his enlistment so he could go to Afghanistan. Thompson was stationed in Marjah, a south-central part of the country that’s considered a hub in Afghanistan’s fertile opium trade. The poppy fields there and elsewhere in the Helmand province help fund the Taliban’s efforts. See Thompson / A4

Following a court hearing Wednesday, Redmond Proficiency Academy founder Michael Bremont will be under house arrest and wear an ankle bracelet with electronic monitoring. Bremont has been indicted on charges of sexually abusing a female student. House arrest and electronic monitoring are part of a new release agreement for Bremont, 39, who faces 14 charges connected to his alleged abuse of a student between October 2009 and September 2010. Bremont also was arraigned in Deschutes County Circuit Court Bremont on the charges, which consist of one count of third-degree sodomy, one count of third-degree attempted rape, two counts of second-degree sexual abuse, and 10 counts of third-degree sexual abuse. The release agreement, approved by Deschutes County Circuit Court Judge Stephen Forte, requires Bremont to live at the home of his aunt and uncle in West Linn and surrender his passport. Bremont cannot have contact with minors, except his children under conditions agreed to with his wife, Tamara Bremont. Bremont also cannot be on the premises of the Redmond charter school or have contact with any of the school’s students or staff. The exception to that condition is his wife, who is a teacher at RPA. Bremont, who appeared in court via video broadcast from the Deschutes County jail, was quiet during the hearing, saying “Yes, sir” when the judge asked him if he understood. See Bremont / A5

Hire a hit man online? Not a joke, at least to some By Victoria Kim Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — As with other online businesses, the site promised convenience and efficiency. With a few clicks of the mouse, one could hire a professional hit man ready to kill “at a moment’s notice.” On the “employment” section of the site, would-be assassins could upload resumes for consideration. “Thanks to the Internet, ordering a hit has never been easier,” read the site HitmanForHire. net, in a chipper, infomercial-like tone. Most thought it was a joke, including the Web designer in Florida commissioned to create the site. See Hit man / A4

Doubling down on speeding up the Web By Steve Lohr New York Times News Service

Wait a second. No, that’s too long. Remember when you were willing to wait a few seconds for a computer to respond to a click on a website or a tap on a keyboard? These days, even 400 milliseconds — literally the blink of an eye — is too long, as Google engineers have discovered. That barely perceptible delay causes people to search less. “Subconsciously, you don’t like to wait,” said Arvind Jain, a Google en-

gineer who is the company’s resident speed maestro. “Every millisecond matters.” Google and other tech companies are on a new quest for speed, challenging the likes of Jain to make fast go faster. The reason is that data-hungry smartphones and tablets are creating frustrating digital traffic jams, as people download maps, video clips of sports highlights, news updates or recommendations for nearby restaurants. The competition to be the quickest is fierce. See Speed / A5

Peter DaSilva / New York Times News Service

Arvind Jain, an engineer at Google, points to a screen showing data at the Google offices in Mountain View. Google’s internal research shows that if search results are slowed by just 400 milliseconds, literally the blink of an eye, people will search less.

The proposal for 2013 is $525 billion, a $6 billion decrease from what Congress approved for 2012.

By 2017, active-duty Army troops would be reduced from 547,000 to 490,000; The Marine Corps would drop from 202,000 to 182,000.

Six Air Force tactical squadrons of 18 to 24 aircraft each would be eliminated, and the purchase of new F-35 stealth fighters would be stretched out.

Seven cruisers would be decommissioned and plans to buy two new Littoral Combat Ships and eight Joint High Speed Vessels would be canceled.

The Pentagon would ask Congress to approve another round of base closings.

The Washington Post

As budget ax looms, officials are mad about metaphors By Greg Jaffe The Washington Post

The Pentagon’s brass talks about killing in the most antiseptic terms imaginable. “Kinetic operations” are launched. Targets are “serviced.” Enemies are “removed from the battlefield.” But threaten the military’s budget, and the language becomes gory and apocalyptic. In the past six months, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other Pentagon officials have compared the arcane budgetcutting process known as sequestration to: • “A doomsday mechanism” • A gunshot to the head • “Fiscal castration” • “A goofy meat ax” Panetta is especially fond of the “meat ax” descriptor, which he deployed no fewer than six times in congressional budget testimony last week. The defense secretary’s rhetorical flourishes have, in turn, inspired an array of less-adept imitators throughout the Pentagon and Congress. “It’s peanut butter,” Adm. Mike Mullen, then the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stammered in September. (Mullen meant that sequestration would force the Pentagon to spread the cuts evenly across

the entire Department of Defense.) In January, Adm. James Winnefeld, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs, unleashed the most confounding mixed metaphor of the sequestration season. “It basically takes a chain saw to a budget, and out of the ashes of that budget, we’re going to have to write a new strategy,” he said. Curiously, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who has a master’s degree in English from Duke University, has avoided florid metaphors. The Joint Chiefs chairman simply says that the cuts would pose an “unacceptable risk” to the country’s security. The looming possibility of $1 trillion in automatic defense cuts emerged from the bitter partisan stalemate last summer over the federal debt limit. In August, lawmakers reached a compromise that allowed the president to raise the debt limit but forced the Pentagon to reduce its budget by about $487 billion in the next decade, a decrease of roughly 8 percent. Under sequestration, that figure could double if President Barack Obama and Congress fail by the end of this year to cut an additional $1.2 trillion in government spending over the next decade. Both parties in Congress hate the cuts. The White House doesn’t like them, either. But Obama, who hopes the potentially painful cuts will compel bipartisan compromise, does not want to bash them

too forcefully. Meanwhile, the Pentagon, which stands to lose $1 trillion, has incentive to complain as loudly as possible about them for the next 10 months. Panetta, a far more effusive brand of Washington insider than Robert Gates, his buttoned-down predecessor, has wholeheartedly embraced his role as Pentagon’s doomsday poet. In September, Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., asked Panetta if sequestration would be like “shooting ourselves in the foot?” “You’d be shooting yourselves in the head!” Panetta countered. Neither the secretary nor the lawmaker raised the possibility that the Pentagon might actually be able to spare the ammo in this new age of austerity. In November, Panetta warned that the automatic cuts would result in “a brigade without bullets.” Of late, other senior Pentagon officials have out-gruesomed their boss. “I think about sequestration as fiscal castration,” Brett Lambert, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for manufacturing policy, said at a defense industry conference. “It truly will emasculate the industrial base.” To be sure, some defense analysts have suggested that the cuts would not eviscerate the military. The United States currently spends more on its armed forces than the next 10 nations, many of them allies, combined.

In 1932, the 20-monthold son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh was kidnapped from the family home near Hopewell, N.J. (The child’s remains were found the following May.) In 1940, “Native Son” by Richard Wright was published. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy signed an executive order establishing the Peace Corps. In 1971, a bomb went off in a men’s room at the U.S. Capitol; the radical group Weather Underground claimed responsibility for the blast.

NASA said its Mars Odyssey spacecraft had found evidence that vast regions of Mars may abound in water. Five years ago: Tornadoes killed 20 people in the Midwest and Southeast.

Dissecting lions and leviathans, anatomist builds a following Mother, ‘Prettiness on the inside’ daughter born on leap days By Carl Zimmer

New York Times News Service

Joy Reidenberg’s trip from Dublin to New York in 2009 was the most embarrassing flight of her life. She gave off a foul stench, like a refrigerator that had gone days without power. Flight attendants moved her to a seat by the lavatory and told other passengers they were having trouble with the bathrooms. “The truth was too hard to explain,” she said: “ ‘Don’t mind me, I was inside a whale yesterday.’ ” Three days earlier, Reidenberg had been sitting in her laboratory at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Manhattan. Her lab is full of whale flippers and frozen camel heads and the other things that a comparative anatomist keeps around the workplace. The phone rang. A British television production company was on the line, wondering if she could fly to Ireland that night. They were about to start filming a series about the world’s biggest animals and, by sheer coincidence, a 65-ton fin whale had washed up on the south coast of Ireland. They wanted to film her dissecting it the next day.

Windfall Films via New York Times News Service

Joy Reidenberg, an anatomist, and Mark Evans, a veterinary scientist, dissected a sperm whale for an episode of “Inside Nature’s Giants.” A chance call made Reidenberg a TV celebrity.

A rare creature Even before that call, Reidenberg was a well-respected researcher who was not afraid of getting dirty to learn how animals work. She has performed well over 400 dissections on stranded whales. But her role in the televised whale dissection turned her to into a creature far more exotic than any of the animals she dissects: a celebrity anatomist. She became a central figure in the series “Inside Nature's

Giants,” alongside Mark Evans, a veterinary scientist; Simon Watt, a biologist; and the evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. The show became a hit in Britain before arriving in the United States. Four episodes (“Sperm Whale,” “Monster Python,” “Great White Shark” and “Big Cats”) aired on PBS in January and February. The final two episodes (“Giant Squid” and “Camel”) will air this summer.

Reidenberg, 50, had her first encounter with anatomy as a high school student interning for a veterinarian in Norwalk, Conn. The sight of a dog being opened up for surgery captivated her. “We’re so used to looking at the outside of the animal — look how pretty it is, look how fast it can run,” she said. “But there’s a lot of prettiness on the inside that people miss.” She hopes the show will bring some attention to the science of anatomy, which she says is often overshadowed by fields like genetics and stem cell research. Anatomists regularly discover new adaptations that can have implications for humans: understanding how whales withstand huge pressures, for instance, may lead to new treatments for brain injuries from combat explosions. There is one other benefit, she said. While she had never considered anatomy as a way to get on television, she loves hearing from strangers about how much they love learning about the insides of animals. “I love fan mail,” she said. “I don't know what these celebrities are complaining about.”

The Associated Press SADDLE RIVER, N.J. — A New Jersey mother born on Feb. 29, 1980, beat 2-million-to-1 odds when she gave birth to her daughter on another leap day, Feb. 29, 2008. Michelle Birnbaum of Saddle River turned 32 Wednesday, but celebrated for only the eighth time on the actual date. Her daughter, Rose, turned 4, although it was only the first time since birth she celebrated on Feb. 29. Michelle said she planned to use the occasion to teach Rose about science and the earth’s cycles around the sun. Birnbaum went into labor on Feb. 28, 2008, but Rose was born the following day. She said she’s delighted to have a “built-in party partner.”

Santorum focuses on Ohio comeback By Richard A. Oppel Jr. New York Times News Service

WEST CHESTER, Ohio — With Mitt Romney pulling out a pair of victories Tuesday night, the pressure is on Rick Santorum to prove he remains a viable challenger by scoring at least a handful of major wins five days from now on Super Tuesday. And his main target is Ohio, where Christian conservatives and working-class voters provide a tempting demographic mix for his comeback effort. Expectations are high: Polls taken before Tuesday’s Michigan and Arizona primaries showed Santorum running strongly against Romney here in Ohio, in some ways the most

important state to vote next Tuesday and a crucial swing state in the fall. On Wednesday, Romney traveled right to Ohio to campaign in Toledo and outside Columbus with a message tailormade for the Rust Belt state, accusing China of “taking away our jobs” and putting “American businesses out of business” by keeping its currency artificially low. He called Santorum an “economic lightweight.” In some ways, the contest here is a test of Santorum’s emerging appeal to voters and the Republican leadership and whether he can draw the working-class white voters who can tilt states into the party’s column in November. In-

deed, surveys of Michigan voters found that he had drawn more support than Romney among those who are not college graduates and who make between $30,000 and $100,000 a year, while Romney carried most college graduates and wealthier voters. The battle lines in this state seem clear. Romney has support from many members of the Republican establishment, including Sen. Rob Portman and the senator he replaced, George V. Voinovich. But Santorum is riding a wave of enthusiasm among anti-abortion activists, Catholics and evangelicals and appears to be gaining strength among working-class voters with his

message about jobs, energy and manufacturing. Still, Santorum’s few bigname surrogates here have been working to tamp down expectations, anticipating the impact of well-financed negative advertisements on behalf of Romney. “We’re going to have a close race in Ohio,” said Mike DeWine, the Ohio attorney general, who abandoned his endorsement of Romney last month to back Santorum. “It’s a crucial state. It’s a swing state. “I think he’s going to win,” he said of Santorum, “but it’s going to be close.” Already, Romney’s campaign and the super PAC backing him have, combined,

committed $3.4 million here to television and radio advertising through Tuesday, according to data from a rival campaign. Santorum’s campaign and the super PAC that supports him have committed just over $500,000, according to a media strategist who tracks advertising spending. Still, Santorum is exhibiting a strong pull here. “I see Santorum as a guy that can go into a union hall and at least make eye contact with a hard-core Democrat, and remind them that their father voted for Ronald Reagan,” said Ed Kasputis, a former Republican state legislator who is now a lawyer and a business owner in Cleveland.

A woman looks over damage as people salvage what they can after a tornado destroyed homes in their neighborhood Wednesday in Harrisburg, Ill. The tornado that blasted Harrisburg, killing six, was an E4, the second-strongest rating given to twisters.

Tornadoes hammer Midwest • And that region and the South are ‘right in the bull’s eye’ of another potential system By Nicholas J.C. Pistor St. Louis Post-Dispatch

HARRISBURG, Ill. — With the walls torn off three rooms by a powerful tornado Wednesday morning and the windows blown out of four others, the worst was yet to come for this small city’s hospital. Among the scores of injured neighbors who hobbled or were wheeled in, four were dead. And one of the dead was a young nurse from the staff, pulled by rescuers from her shattered apartment. “You had nurses here fac-

ing lots and lots of trauma in a building that had been damaged and they had lost one of their own,” explained Vince Ashley, chief executive of the Harrisburg Medical Center. “It was dark and wet and everything you can imagine all at once,” he said as some equilibrium was returning to his tattered building, where glass littered the floor and wires hung from ceilings. Whole neighborhoods were flattened in this community of 9,000 people, about 100 miles southeast of St. Louis. Six peo-

ple were killed here as at least 16 tornados swept from Nebraska to Kentucky. Missouri counted three dead, in Buffalo and the Cassville and Puxico areas. The Harrisburg twister was an E4, the second-strongest category, the National Weather Service’s Rick Shanklin deduced from the damage. He said it scoured a path about 200 yards wide with wind of up to 170 mph, splintering buildings and tossing vehicles like toys. It moved through the Country Club Hills subdivision so

quickly that Dr. Vinay Mehta never had a chance to leave his upstairs bedroom. “It came so fast, and then it was gone,” he said. “It lasted no more than 30 seconds.” Mehta ventured outside, where power lines crackled and many of his neighbors’ homes were destroyed. The surgeon walked a few blocks to the hospital and treated a lot of broken bones. Other patients were airlifted out, he said, noting, “Some of them had serious problems.” Storm spotters gave Harris-

burg about 30 minutes of warning before the tornado cut a swath across the southern part of the city just before 5 a.m. Forewarned, the medical center moved patients away from vulnerable areas. Afterward, it transferred out the patients it could while dealing with a flood of incoming injuries. Ashley said none of the 12 patients in the damaged unit was hurt. As the region’s damaged communities dug out, the Storm Prediction Center, in Norman, Okla., forecast another potentially damaging system Friday that meteorologist Ryan Jewell said would put the Midwest and South “right in the bull’s eye.”

Obama salutes veterans Syrian troops launch of Iraq War at dinner ground assault on Homs By Nancy Benac

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — With a formal dinner for the few, President Barack Obama on Wednesday paid solemn tribute to the many. The president who opposed the Iraq War from its outset thanked those who fought its battles by sitting down to a candlelit meal with a small cross-section of the millionplus who served there over the past nine years. Looking out over a sea of dress uniforms sparkling with medals attesting to years of wartime strife, Obama told the gathering: “In a culture that celebrates fame and fortune, yours are not necessarily household names. You are something more: the patriots who served in our name. And after nearly nine years in Iraq, tonight is an opportunity to express our gratitude and to say once more, welcome home.” The faces of war were reflected in the 200 veterans and

their guests who gathered in the East Room to dine on aged ribeye steak, potato croquettes and chocolate crème brulee. They came from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories, and spanned generations, gender and all five branches of the military. There was a 24-year-old sailor from Colorado, Petty Officer 3rd Class Max R. Rohn, who spent just five months in Iraq before losing part of his right leg in a blast. There was a 31-year-old Air Force sergeant from Georgia, J.H. Smith, who deployed to Iraq six times in five years and won the Distinguished Flying Cross. The first person injured in the war, Marine Staff Sgt. Eric Alva of Texas, also was there. Alva, 41, had a leg amputated after stepping on a land mine just hours after the war began in 2003. He later revealed that he was gay and became a prominent advocate for ending the military’s ban on openly gay service members.

By Liz Sly The Washington Post

BEIRUT, Lebanon — A communications blackout descended over the besieged Bab Amr district in the central Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday as Syrian troops, backed by tanks, launched what appeared to be a major offensive aimed at wresting back control of the area from government opponents. There were reports of at least one fierce battle on the outskirts of the neighborhood, and residents elsewhere in Homs described intense shelling there and in many other parts of the city. There were fears that the violence marked the start of an all-out attempt to crush resistance in the epicenter of the nearly year-long revolt against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. But with almost all communications to Bab Amr severed, including the satellite phones that activists have

been using to transmit news and images of the fighting to the outside world, it was difficult to establish exactly what was happening. Some activists said the government had blocked satellite transmissions; others said fuel supplies had run out for generators that besieged residents use to power laptops and satellite phones. In the first instance of its kind, opposition groups said they could not provide casualty figures for the day’s fighting in Homs because they could not reach their contacts. Activists in other parts of Homs described widespread fear as the sound of explosions echoed across the city. One activist, who identified himself only as Abu Emad, said government ground forces tried to enter the Bab Amr neighborhood Wednesday morning alongside a sports stadium to the northeast but ran into stiff resis-

tance from rebels of the Free Syrian Army. “A lot of soldiers tried to enter, but they couldn’t until now because the Free Syrian Army is fighting back,” said the activist, speaking over a satellite connection.

North Korea to suspend nuclear work By Steven Lee Myers and Choe Sang-Hun New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — North Korea announced Wednesday that it would suspend nuclear weapons tests and uranium enrichment and allow international inspectors to monitor activities at its main nuclear complex, a step that raised the possibility of ending a diplomatic impasse that has allowed the country’s nuclear program to continue with no international oversight for years. Although the Obama administration called the steps “important, if limited,” they nonetheless signaled that the country’s new leader, Kim Jong Un, is at least willing to engage with the United States, which pledged in exchange to ship tons of food aid to the isolated, impoverished nation. North Korea also agreed on a moratorium on launchings of long-range missiles, which have in the past raised military tensions in the region. If the agreement holds, it would ease some anxieties in Washington over the program. Senior administration officials said the United States would move cautiously, and that the resumption of substantive talks on North Korea’s nuclear program would begin only after its leaders followed through on the agreement announced Wednesday. “The United States, I will be quick to add, still has profound concerns,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at a House appropriations hearing. The United States agreed to send 240,000 metric tons of food aid, although it limited it to high-protein biscuits, infant formula and other nutritional supplements, rather than rice and grains.

Anonymous hackers claim they were infiltrated The Associated Press LIMA, Peru — People identifying themselves as activists in the Anonymous hacker movement said Wednesday it wasn’t technical prowess but police infiltration that yielded 25 arrests in a sweep in Europe and South America. Interpol did not say how it encountered the 25 suspects, who it says were involved in cyberattacks originating from Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain that targeted sites including Colombia’s defense ministry and presidency and Chile’s Endesa electricity company and national library.

U.S. judge strikes down FDA cigarette labels By Stephanie Strom New York Times News Service

A federal judge Wednesday declared unconstitutional a Food and Drug Administration requirement that tobacco companies prominently display graphic warning labels on cigarette packages. Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court in Washington ruled that forcing the companies to use the labels, which show staged images

Thompson Continued from A1 According to Thompson’s Bronze Star citation, he was conducting combat operations southeast of Marjah on July 30, 2010, when his patrol encountered five enemy fighters in a treeline 50 meters away. The two sides immediately began firing on each other. The citation states Thompson guided his patrol throughout the “kill zone” and coordinated counterattacks despite “withering” enemy fire. Ultimately, he was able to get his patrol to safety by “low crawling” to a fortified position 100 meters away. Less than three months later, Thompson’s patrol once again found itself in the middle of an ambush. It was Oct. 21, 2010, and the unit was on patrol in the upper Sangin River Valley when enemy fire poured down on it. With “complete disregard for his own safety,” the citation states Thompson worked his way through open terrain in an attempt to reach a nearby compound. He was forced to the ground, and “rounds snapped by his head.” “Undeterred, he continued to effectively suppress the enemy as the entire area erupted with enemy small arms fire,” the citation states. “As rounds continued to rip by him, he refused to leave his position and continued to suppress the enemy until the entire patrol was out of the kill zone.” Thompson said he appreciates the honor, but he also said many of the troops in his unit deserve just as much recognition, if not more. Attacks like the two mentioned in his Bronze Star citation are common, he said, adding that he’s been ambushed a number of times while on patrol. “It’s a lot different when you have control and when you don’t,” he said. “When we get pinned down like that, our best bet is to just try and get out of there without getting anybody hurt. I don’t know. I guess we just got lucky those couple of times because they were pretty hairy ones.” Thompson didn’t have such good fortune on Oct. 25, 2010. He was caught in an explosion when a fellow Marine stepped on an IED, setting it off. The blast blew off that man’s legs and one of his arms. Shrapnel hit Thompson in the arms, neck and face. He lost some teeth and broke his jaw. He also lost an eye. His father, Mike Thompson, helped take care of him for a couple of months as he recovered from his injuries. He says his son is now struggling with the sight in his right eye. But even with the injuries, Mike Thompson said his son told him he’d go back and do it all again. “They firmly believed that they were there doing it for a good cause,” Mike Thompson said. “It’s very humbling to see that and know they’ve sacrificed that much. I don’t know that I could do it. I know I couldn’t. And I thank God for a young man like him.” Kyle Thompson still has several surgeries ahead of him to fix a damaged mandible and replace the five teeth he lost during the IED explosion that took his eye. Until then, he said he’s looking forward to being medically discharged and enrolling in classes at Central Oregon Community College. “It’s going to be nice to get back home,” he said. “I definitely have a lot of fishing to catch up on.” — Reporter: 541-633-2160, ngrube@bendbulletin.com

like a man breathing smoke out of a tracheotomy hole in his neck and a mouth punctured with what appear to be cancerous lesions, violated their free speech rights under the First Amendment. “The government’s interest in advocating a message cannot and does not outweigh plaintiff’s First Amendment right to not be the government’s messenger,” Leon wrote. His ruling largely echoed argu-

ments he made in a preliminary injunction he issued in November. The significance of Wednesday’s ruling is unclear, since the Obama administration has appealed the injunction. “This decision adds nothing to the existing record,” said Matthew Myers, a lawyer and president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, an advocacy group. “It represents an inaccurate statement of the facts, is wrong on the science of the health impact

of tobacco and uses the wrong legal standards. Other than that, he got it perfect.” Five tobacco companies — R.J. Reynolds, Lorillard, Commonwealth Brands, the Liggett Group and Santa Fe Natural — challenged the labels, arguing that the government was trying to use their packaging not to inform and educate consumers but to advocate a change in behavior. That, they argued, went beyond

the “compelled commercial speech” courts have ruled is permissible under the First Amendment to protect consumers from confusion and deception. The companies have not objected to new warning labels per se. Rather, they have objected to what they contend are the “grotesque” images the government wants in their packaging. The FDA does not comment on possible, pending or active litigation.

In Putin’s Russia, allegations of a KGB-like plot By Kathy Lally The Washington Post

MOSCOW — Sounding as if he was quoting from a dusty KGB manual or a bad movie script, Vladimir Putin warned Wednesday that his opponents are prepared to murder one of their own so they can blame it on him. The Russian prime minister also assured a meeting of his supporters here that if he is elected president Sunday, all Russians can expect nothing but happiness — higher pensions, a firm retirement age (60 for men, 55 for women) and unfettered media besides. Plus state-run television will get rid of commercials. Skepticism was the dominant reaction on the Internet, where much of Putin’s opposition resides — regular

Russian prime minister and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin says his opponents are prepared to kill one of their own and blame it on him.

government. “What’s next?” was the common refrain. “They are looking for a socalled sacrificial victim among some prominent figures,” Putin, a former KGB agent, told a gathering of the All-Russia Popular Front, a group organized to support him. “They will knock him off, I beg your pardon, and then blame the authorities for that.” Boris Nemtsov, a foe Putin appears to despise more than most, tossed the imputation right back. It was up to the authorities, he said, to prevent such an unspeakable act. “If the head of the federal government, who controls all intelligence agencies, makes a public statement that he has information about such a provocation and such a crime, he

must do everything to prevent it and not just publicly scare Russians,” he told the Interfax news agency. Here in Russia, some sycophants see in even off-hand Putin comments ways to please him. Nemtsov, a liberal leader from the early post-Soviet days, said that he was taking Putin’s comments seriously and that the opposition should, as well. “If the authorities fail to do everything to prevent such a scenario,” Nemtsov said, “they will become accomplices in this grave crime being plotted.” Earlier Wednesday, the Kommersant newspaper reported that the man charged with arranging the murder of investigative journalist Anna

Hit man

— boiling and grinding the beans, eventually producing a fine powder. They had packed it into a contact lens case, and flown with it across the Atlantic, Engle told Sotelo. It was in Eid’s bag of toiletries. Sotelo quickly called her Irish counterparts. To their horror, his toiletry bag had been searched at the time of Eid’s arrest and returned to him because it contained the medication he needed for his heart condition. Irish authorities raided his jail cell, and seized the bag. They found the lens case. It was empty.

Continued from A1 FBI Agent Ingerd Sotelo, who had investigated perhaps half a dozen hit-man cases in her 12-year career, probably wouldn’t have taken it seriously if she came across it Web-surfing. Except there was a terrified 23-year-old woman sitting in front of her, pale with genuine fear, saying someone had used the site to put a $37,000 hit on her head.

A man in black The man behind HitmanForHire.net showed up at Woodland Hills mortgage broker Anne Lauren Royston’s office one Saturday morning in 2006, wearing head-to-toe black and driving a yellow Corvette. He was middle-aged and tan, with a thick mustache and a heavy accent, and brought along a woman with cigarette breath he called his wife. He carried a black folder holding numerous photos of Royston and an email message: “I want her done by a shot to the head.” The message was from her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend. His client, the man said, had deposited $17,000 for the job. The hit man calmly told Royston she reminded him of his daughter. Then he made her an offer: Pay him the balance on the contract, and he would let her live. She had three days. Sotelo, who other agents in the violent crime squad knew as the “prison girl” for the number of federal lockup cases she’s investigated, now sat in the same conference room with Royston. It was Tuesday, the deadline the man had given. Royston easily picked him out in a photo lineup. In either a sophomoric gaffe or a sign of brazen confidence, he had given Royston his real name.

Poker dealer with a family Essam Ahmed Eid of Las Vegas seemed an unlikely killer — or at least one who hid it incredibly well. The Egyptianborn man was 51, had a heart condition, and worked as a poker dealer at the Bellagio. He lived in a four-bedroom tract home in North Las Vegas with his family, including a daughter in college. Sotelo recorded a series of calls to Royston in which Eid and the woman purported to be his wife repeated their demands for money. At the agent’s direction, Royston asked for more time to come up with the cash. But a couple weeks later, the man seemed to disappear. Following her instincts, the agent pulled up a database of entry and exit records in and out of the U.S. Sure enough, Eid, along with a woman named Teresa Engle, had left the country.

Politkovskaya had accused Boris Berezovsky, another Putin bete noir who is living in exile in London, of planning that killing, along with a former Chechen leader, Akhmed Zakayev. “I can’t comment on this nonsense,” Berezovsky, a 1990s-era oligarch who ran afoul of Putin, told reporters. “It’s too much.” Putin made no secret of his scorn for Politkovskaya, who wrote critical articles about the war in Chechnya. She was killed on Putin’s birthday in 2006. An attorney for Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov, the former police colonel accused of arranging her death, told Interfax that his client had implicated Berezovsky as part of a pre-trial deal with investigators.

Notoriety

Francine Orr / Los Angeles Times

FBI Agent Ingerd Sotelo helped unravel the case of the hit-man website. It started when a terrified 23-year-old woman showed up saying someone had used the site to put out a hit on her “by a shot to the head.”

But the couple hadn’t flown to Eid’s native Egypt, or some remote tropical paradise with no extradition treaties with the U.S. Eid, it appeared, was in western Ireland.

Case goes international Around the same time, detectives in the quaint riverbank town of Ennis — billed on an Irish travel site as “the most endearing town” — were scratching their heads over a similar situation. It had started with a cutand-dry burglary case: Two laptops were stolen from the office of wealthy businessman P.J. Howard. The next day, a man contacted one of P.J.’s two sons and told him someone wanted their father and both sons dead, for 130,000 euros. But for a discounted sum on the balance of the contract — 100,000 euros — he would let them live. The Irish police — Gardai, as they are known — swiftly arrested the man. Their suspect was Eid. Sotelo learned of the arrest through the FBI’s attache in London. Investigators on both sides of the Atlantic compared notes but weren’t sure exactly what they were looking at — an audacious, bumbling extortion scam, or something more. For answers, federal agents raided Eid’s Las Vegas home. The “mother lode,” as Sotelo later recalled, was on the family computer. Over about a week, she scoured its contents. Through the website, people around the world had written to Eid — some clearly more serious than others. A fifthgrade girl in Kentucky wanted another girl in her class dead. Several volunteered to kill for hire. One woman wanted help committing suicide. Two women, one in Pennsylvania and another in Ire-

land, confided about men in their lives who drove them to want to kill. Marissa Mark, a collections agent in Allentown, Pa., was to the point about the new girlfriend of the man who left her behind and moved to the West Coast: “I need someone by the name of Lauren Royston killed ASAP. She is located in Los Angeles, CA.” She had sent a $17,000 deposit through PayPal by cobbling together charges on three stolen credit cards. Sharon Collins, a divorcee in Ennis, went into far more lurid detail about how she wanted her lover P.J. Howard killed, and why. In emails that went on for pages, she told Eid that his two sons were to be killed first. Then, it should appear as though Howard jumped to his death from his 14th-floor penthouse vacation home in Spain. “Remember, I need it to look like he has committed suicide after hearing about his sons,” she wrote. She wanted to inherit Howard’s fortune, Collins wrote, but told Eid that wasn’t the main motivation. Howard, she wrote, “wants to control every part of my life.” “The main reason I’m doing this is because he is continually trying to force me to go out and pick up a stranger for sex. ... The mother of my boys is not a slut.” As a deposit, Collins sent 15,000 euros in cash wrapped in brown paper to Eid’s home.

Learning the ropes His clients may have thought they were emailing a veteran killer, but his computer records painted Eid as a novice when it came to murder for hire. After launching the website a few months earlier, Eid appeared to have done what any mod-

ern-day neophyte would do with a new task — he turned to Google. Between numerous searches for Clay Aiken — Eid’s wife was an avid fan — Sotelo found records showing that Eid had surfed the Web about his new trade. He looked up how to make a homemade silencer from toilet parts, attempted to place an Internet order for cyanide, and researched ricin — the castor bean-derived poison famously used in the 1978 assassination of Bulgarian dissident journalist Georgi Markov through an umbrella gun. “The powder you have made is tasteless and odorless. It can be sprinkled into soup or placed in a drink or inhaled,” read one Web page that Eid searched, which offered a 15step instruction on making ricin. “It takes about 3-4 days to act and when it does the guy will be dead within a week.” At the home, agents found indications that Eid had utilized his research. There was a 9 mm pistol with a homemade rubber silencer, and a shriveled castor bean plant in the backyard. With the information, Sotelo pressed Teresa Engle about the ricin. Engle had married Eid a year earlier, even though he was legally married to another woman — the Aiken fan. All three lived in the Las Vegas home. Engle would later tell a federal judge Eid “dominated and controlled” her. Whether it was because of Eid’s control or from her own will, Engle had accompanied Eid to Woodland Hills and then to Ireland. After Irish authorities decided not to charge her because she had little direct involvement there, she quickly flew back to the U.S. and began cooperating with the FBI. Engle described how they made ricin in the garage

In 2008, Sotelo arrived in Dublin to testify in Eid’s trial and found herself being chased by cameramen like a Hollywood starlet. The case was a sensation there. Between Howard’s fortunes, Collins’ beauty, the flirtatious tone of email exchanges between Collins and Eid — “You’re very handsome,” she wrote after they sent each other photos — the story was tabloid gold. Then there were the lab results that came back from the lens case: It tested positive for traces of ricin. After a six-week trial, with every sordid detail splashed across the national media, Eid was convicted of extortion and burglary, but acquitted of solicitation of murder. He was sentenced to six years in prison. Last year, he was extradited to Los Angeles to face charges here. On the eve of his trial, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy relating to extortion and received a 33-month prison sentence. Engle was sentenced to a lighter eight months because of her cooperation. Collins, dubbed the “Devil in the Red Dress” by Irish media for a photo she sent to Eid of herself, was convicted of soliciting murder and sentenced to six years in prison, according to press accounts there. Mark, who hired Eid to kill Royston, was sentenced in Pennsylvania in January, also to six years. Throughout, Eid has kept mum about what it was that led him to such a drastic midlife career change, smiling enigmatically at the Irish cameras and occasionally waving to them. Sotelo said the motivation appeared to be financial — he seemed to enjoy the finer things in life, like his prized Corvette. But in the end, Eid’s Web venture may have revealed far more about the people enticed by its promises than the man behind it. He now sits in federal prison in Mississippi after having served his sentence in Ireland. He could be released as early as November 2013, just after celebrating his 58th birthday.

Prineville Continued from A1 Officials hoped the test well would tap into a confined aquifer that could eventually supply water to northern Prineville residents. Right now, water has to travel through a series of booster tanks to reach these residents, and finding an onsite production well in this area would reduce costs, which are only expected to increase as the area continues to develop. Klann said the test well in

Bremont Continued from A1 Bremont was arrested and booked into jail Feb. 18. He’s since been in and out of jail. Bremont was bailed out Feb. 20 by Scott Reed, a relative and former colleague who worked with Bremont at Central Linn High School. Reed, now principal of Taft High School in Lincoln City, posted $3,050 on the $30,500 bail. Bremont was rearrested Feb. 23 in Albany for allegedly violating unspecified conditions of his release. Bremont’s bail went up to $500,000 after his second arrest, which means anyone bailing him out would have to come up with $50,000. Under the new agreement, that higher bail was removed. Only the already-posted $3,050 was required. The new release conditions, though, are much more stringent than those initially imposed. Originally, Bremont’s main requirements were to reside at his Redmond home, have no contact with the victim and not leave the state. Deputy District Attorney Kandy Gies declined to comment on what release condition was violated, saying she cannot talk about it because the case is ongoing. L. Todd Wilson, Bremont’s attorney, declined to comment after the hearing other than to say the defense is still investigating the case. Bremont, who has been the charter school’s director since it opened in 2009, is on paid administrative leave. Previously, he was principal at Central Linn High School and a vice principal at Redmond High School. Bremont was released from the Deschutes County jail Wednesday evening. His next court hearing is scheduled for April 9.

northern Prineville did find water but not in a confined aquifer, which preserves the water’s quality, and city officials plan to continue scoping out the area for its well potential. “One of my goals is planning out into the future.

Continued from A1 People will visit a commerce or news website less often if it is slower than a close competitor by more than 250 milliseconds (a millisecond is a thousandth of a second). “Two hundred fifty milliseconds, either slower or faster, is close to the magic number now for competitive advantage on the Web,” said Harry Shum, a computer scientist and speed specialist at Microsoft. The performance of websites varies, and so do user expectations. A person will be more patient waiting for a video clip to load than for a search result. And websites constantly face trade-offs between visual richness and snappy response times. As entertainment and news sites, like The New York Times website, offer more video clips and interactive graphics, that can slow things down. But speed matters in every context, research shows. Four out of five online users will click away if a video stalls while loading. On a mobile phone, a Web page takes a leisurely 9 seconds to load, according to Google, which tracks a huge range of sites from the homes of large companies to the legions of one-person bloggers. Download times on personal computers average about 6 seconds worldwide, and about 3.5 seconds on average in the United States. The major search engines, Google and Microsoft’s Bing, are the speed demons of the Web, analysts say, typically delivering results in less than a second. The hunger for speed on smartphones is a business opportunity for companies like Akamai Technologies, which specializes in helping websites deliver services more quickly. Later this month, Akamai plans to introduce mobile accelerator software to help speed the loading of a website or app. The government too recognizes the importance of speed in mobile computing.

ruary, Congress opened the door to an increase in network capacity for mobile devices, proposing legislation that permits the auction of public airwaves now used for television broadcasts to wireless Internet suppliers. Overcoming speed bumps is part of the history of the Internet. In the 1990s, as the World Wide Web became popular, and crowded, it was called the World Wide Wait. Invention and investment answered the call. Laying a lot of fiber optic cable for high-speed transmission was the first solution. But beyond bandwidth, the Web got faster because of innovations in software algorithms for routing traffic, and in distributing computer servers around the world, nearer to users. Akamai, which grew out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Laboratory for Computer Science, built its sizable business doing just that. Most major websites use Akamai’s technology today. The company sees the mobile Internet as the next big challenge. “Users’ expectations are getting shorter and shorter, and the mobile infrastructure is not built for that kind of speed,” said Tom Leighton, co-founder

He was unable to provide a time line for when more information will be available. Separately, RPA had planned to open another charter school this fall in SalemKeizer School District.

and chief scientist at Akamai, who is also an MIT professor. “And that’s an opportunity for us.” The need for speed itself seems to be accelerating. In the early 1960s, the two professors at Dartmouth College who invented the BASIC programming language, John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz, set up a network in which many students could tap into a single, large computer from keyboard terminals. “We found,” they observed, “that any response time that averages more than 10 seconds destroys the illusion of having one’s own computer.” In 2009, a study by Forrester Research found that online shoppers expected pages to load in 2 seconds or less — and at 3 seconds, a large share abandon the site. Only three years earlier a similar Forrester study found the average expectation for page load times was 4 seconds or less. The 2-second rule is still often cited as a standard for Web commerce sites. Yet experts in human-computer interaction say that rule is outdated. “The old 2-second guideline has long been surpassed on the racetrack of Web expectations,” said Eric Horvitz, a scientist at Microsoft’s research labs.

Google, which harvests more Internet ad revenue than any other company, stands to benefit more than most if the Internet speeds up. Jain, who worked at Microsoft and Akamai before joining Google in 2003, is an evangelist for speed both inside and outside the company. He leads a “Make the Web Faster” program, begun in 2009. He also holds senior positions in industry standards groups. Speed, Jain said, is a critical element in all of Google’s products. There is even a companywide speed budget; new offerings and product tweaks must not slow down Google services. But there have been lapses. In 2007, for example, after the company added popular new offerings like Gmail, things slowed down enough that Google’s leaders issued a “Code Yellow” and handed out plastic stopwatches to its engineers to emphasize that speed matters. Still, not everyone is in line with today’s race to be faster. Kurtz, the Dartmouth computer scientist who is the co-inventor of BASIC, is now 84, and marvels at how things have changed. Computers and networks these days, Kurtz said, “are fast enough for me.”

Obama, Congress leaders seek cooperation on jobs

W  B Egypt lifts travel ban on U.S. workers CAIRO — Egypt lifted a travel ban Wednesday on seven Americans charged with fomenting unrest by working for illegally funded prodemocracy groups, signaling an end to the worst crisis in Egypt-U.S. relations in 30 years. The clash put $1.5 billion in annual American aid to Egypt at risk and sparked intense behind-the-scenes negotiations between the two countries to find a way out.

By Jim Kuhnhenn The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — After quarreling for months, President Barack Obama and the top two Republicans in Congress expressed optimism Wednesday about finding a common jobs and energy agenda, prodded by political reality to show results in an election year. Meeting face-to-face for the first time since July, Obama, the Republican leaders and top Democratic lawmakers emerged without the acrimony and crises that have been normal hallmarks of their relationships. “The president believes that there were some areas where we could find common ground, and frankly I was encouraged,” House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, said. The session, called by Obama, came after bipartisan majorities in Congress passed an extension of a payroll tax cut sought by the president. White House and congressional aides said participants concluded it was possible to act on more legislation despite the partisan pressures of an election year. “I think there is an indication here that we can get some things done, and we look forward to doing that,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Cooperation is likely on measures that face the least resistance, such as uncontroversial initiatives aimed at helping small businesses raise capital and create jobs. Carney said elements of a House Republican bill that extends assistance to small businesses “overlap considerably with the president’s priorities.”

Seeking common ground Though hardly an allout thaw in the relationship, the meeting signaled a new emphasis on finding common ground. Driving Republican efforts to find legislative successes are public approval levels for Congress and congressional Republicans in particular that are at historic lows. And while White House officials believe the clashes with Congress have improved Obama’s standing, they say any legislative accomplishments would accrue to his benefit as well. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the burden now falls on Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “I hope that the majority leader, who’s responsible . for deciding what bills we will turn to, will turn to bills that can actually pass and be signed into law,” McConnell said. Still, Obama and the leaders disagreed on whether the president immediately should grant a permit for a Canada-toTexas oil pipeline. Obama blocked the Keystone XL pipeline this year, citing uncertainty over a route that avoids the environmentally sensitive Sand Hills region in Nebraska. The pipeline’s Canadian builder, TransCanada, said Monday it still hopes to build the full 1,700-mile pipeline, and the White House said it would review an application for a new route. Carney said calls to approve the pipeline now are “insulting to the American people” because there is no route to approve. McConnell’s office said in a statement that in the face of rising oil prices, the Obama administration could “stop taking actions that increase the price at the pump while limiting opportunities for American job growth.”

Great Texas warrant roundup nabs misdemeanor offenders By Manny Fernandez New York Times News Service

HALE CENTER, Texas — A burly, goateed police lieutenant knocked on a door in this windswept farming town of 2,200 Tuesday morning. He was looking for Daniel Castillo, who had become a wanted man. There was a good chance Castillo knew the law was after him: His picture was posted on a community bulletin board at the post office and on the plate-glass windows outside the police station, and his name was published Friday in a local newspaper, The American. The lieutenant, Brandon Richardson, held the warrant for Castillo’s arrest as

Priest denies communion to lesbian at mother’s funeral By Michelle Boorstein The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Deep in grief, Barbara Johnson stood first in the line for Communion at her mother’s funeral Saturday morning. But the priest in front of her immediately made it clear that she would not receive the sacramental bread and wine. Johnson, an art-studio owner from the District, had come to St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Gaithersburg with her lesbian partner. The Rev. Marcel Guarnizo had learned of their relationship just before the service. “He put his hand over the body of Christ and looked at me and said, ‘I can’t give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the church, that is a sin,’ “ she recalled Tuesday. She reacted with stunned silence. Her anger and outrage have now led her and members of her family to demand that Guarnizo be removed from his ministry. Family members said the priest left the altar while Johnson, 51, was delivering a eulogy and did not attend the burial or find another priest to be there. “You brought your politics, not your God into that Church yesterday, and you will pay dearly on the day of judgment for judging me,” she wrote in a letter to Guarnizo. “I will pray for your soul, but first I will do everything in my power to see that you are removed from parish life so that you will not be permitted to harm any more families.” The priest’s action has also triggered an uproar among gay rights activists and enlivened some religious conservatives.

he knocked. But the manhunt lacked a certain tension. Castillo was hardly a desperate killer on the run. In fact, he was wanted for failing to take care of a traffic violation — lacking proof of auto insurance — and his fine was $868. In some other state, perhaps, Castillo’s failure to address his outstanding warrant might have been a private matter or might have been a low priority for law enforcement. But this is Texas, and this is the week of the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, an annual statewide event that functions as a sort of “America’s Most Wanted” for an unromanticized subset of the Texas outlaw: the

misdemeanor kind. Each year in late February and early March, dozens of law enforcement agencies and municipal courts in big cities and small towns across the state take to the airwaves and to the streets seeking out, apprehending and otherwise rounding up Texans who have ignored their unpaid speeding tickets and other minor infractions for too long. None are wanted for violent offenses like murder or robbery. The focus, instead, is on those with outstanding warrants for misdemeanor traffic, parking and city ordinance violations — going 80 mph in a 70-mph zone, writing a bad check — who failed to resolve their ticket or case by paying

a fine or appearing in court. No other state holds an event quite like the weeklong Warrant Roundup, now in its sixth year. More than 260 agencies and courts are taking part in the roundup, which in most jurisdictions started Saturday and ends March 4. By the end of a typical Warrant Roundup, thousands of people will have been arrested and millions of dollars in fines and court fees will have been paid across the state. Last year, the Houston police arrested 4,110 and the city’s municipal courts collected $2.5 million. This year, Waco arrested 32 on Saturday, and San Antonio apprehended 39 on Monday. Abilene has collected $31,040 so far.

BEIJING — An outburst of violence in a remote desert region of western China has underscored increased tensions over Chinese rule in ethnic-minority areas just days before an important national policy meeting here in Beijing. About 20 people were reported killed Tuesday night in clashes in Xinjiang province in China’s far west. The tensions have been growing during the past year in ethnic Uighur and Tibetan areas, and violence involving security forces and civilians is becoming a regular occurrence.

3 inquiries look into Quran incident KABUL, Afghanistan — Three major investigations were under way Wednesday into the Quran burning at Bagram Air Base by the U.S. military last week, the event that plunged Afghanistan into days of deadly protests claiming as many as 30 Afghan lives and coinciding with the shooting deaths of four U.S. soldiers. In a tense atmosphere in Afghanistan, the investigations signal the seriousness of the incident for both the Afghans and the Americans and an understanding of the need to offer a full explanation and a reckoning for the perpetrators. — From wire reports

IN BRIEF James Murdoch resigns from post After months of deeply uncomfortable scrutiny, James Murdoch resigned Wednesday as head of his father’s scandal-ridden newspaper properties in Britain. He said he would concentrate on the company’s lucrative television properties, working from the New York headquarters of News Corp., Rupert Murdoch’s global media conglomerate. The announcement that the younger Murdoch, 39, had quit as executive chairman of News International, the British newspaper subsidiary of News Corp., came at a moment of intensifying pressure on the Murdoch-owned tabloids at the center of the scandal, The Sun and the now-defunct News of the World. The papers’ reporters, editors and corporate executives, including James Murdoch, have been at the center of overlapping investigations by the police, Parliament and a judicial inquiry into a pattern of widespread phone hacking and payoffs to police and other public officials.

GM, Peugeot form alliance

In a closely watched display of its firepower, the European Central Bank on Wednesday allocated to eurozone banks another huge round of the cheap, three-year loans that have helped avert a banking crisis but have not yet revived lending to businesses and households. Banks asked to borrow 529.5 billion euros ($713 billion) compared to 489 billion euros in December’s offer of three-year loans. The ECB said that 800 banks put in for loans, compared to 523 in December. — From wire reports

Brewer Ian Greene pours malt into a mash tun to brew beer Wednesday at Boneyard Beer’s brewery on Lake Place in Bend.

General Motors said Wednesday that it had agreed to form a “longterm and broad-scale” alliance with the French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroen, including the purchase of a 7 percent stake in the company, to share vehicle architectures and jointly buy parts. The companies said they expected the partnership to produce annual savings of about $2 billion, which they would split roughly evenly, within five years. But it will have limited benefits the first two years, as both carmakers restructure their money-losing operations in Europe, including job cuts and, potentially, plant closings.

• Young brewery is ready to expand into a new facility to keep up with surging demand By Jordan Novet • The Bulletin

L

ess than two years after it began brewing in a small space near downtown Bend, Boneyard Beer has emerged as one of the top-selling breweries in Oregon.

In 2011, it sold more beer in the state than six other Central Oregon breweries, including 10 Barrel Brewing Co., according to data the Oregon Liquor Control Commission released last week. Having sold 2,737 barrels in Oregon last year, it ranked 18th of all 110 breweries that reported sales in the state. A barrel equates to 31 gallons. Almost every month since Boneyard started selling beer in April 2010, the brewery shot up the ranks. Two days after the OLCC released its

year-end statistics, beer blogger Adam Nason of beerpulse.com named Boneyard the Oregon microbrewery of the year. “The company virtually came out of nowhere, surging into the top 20 breweries in terms of production,” Nason wrote. Boneyard wants to make between 7,000 and 10,000 barrels this year. But at its production facility and tasting room on Lake Place in the center of Bend, ramping up production and, by extension, sales will be a challenge. “There’s not really any more space left

in this building,” co-owner Tony Lawrence said. Which is why earlier this year Boneyard signed a one-year lease for 8,000 square feet in a high-ceilinged 14,000square-foot building on Plateau Court, off Northeast Empire Avenue. Lawrence said he hopes the company’s new 50-barrel brew system will be functional on Plateau Court by the fourth quarter of this year. Plans for the Lake Place location have not been finalized.

BARCELONA, Spain — These days much of the action in the world of gadgets is happening in smartphones — like their sophisticated design and the apps that run on them. That has left desktop and laptop computers looking a little dull in comparison. So computers are suddenly getting more phonelike. Microsoft and Apple are leading the charge in this area. On Wednesday, Microsoft took the wraps off its latest operating system for computers and tablets, Windows 8, which mimics the look and feel of the company’s new software for phones. And Apple recently offered a preview of its next operating system for Macs, incorporating elements from the iPhone and iPad. “All of the major innovation for PCs is coming from the mobile phone,” said Tim Coulling, an analyst at the research firm Canalys.

Schools try to match jobless with the 3.4 million open jobs By Steven Greenhouse New York Times News Service

Ever since the deep recession hit four years ago, many colleges have been rethinking their continuing education programs, straining to figure out how best to help the many unemployed Americans who have looked to them as a lifeline. With the unemployment rate still stubbornly high, this rethinking has led to a powerful trend in which many schools, whether prestigious state universities or workhorse community colleges, are trying more than ever to tailor their continuing-education offerings to where the job openings are — and where the jobs of tomorrow will be.

The University of California, Los Angeles has established a program in “global sustainability” that includes courses on renewable energy and green marketing. With the nation’s exports booming, Miami Dade College has expanded its program to train people to become private customs brokers — facilitators of overseas shipping. Seeing how Google, Facebook and Twitter have exploded in popularity, New York University and Rutgers University have set up programs in digital marketing. “We’ve become much more focused, much more agile and much more driven by what the data is telling us on where the jobs are,” said Bob Templin, president of Northern Virgin-

ia Community College. “We’re very market-oriented now, whereas before we would offer the courses that people were interested in teaching and we’d see who would show up. In the last 24 months, we’ve thoroughly reorganized our continuing-education unit, and we now refer to it as ‘Work Force Development in Continuing Education.’ ” Even though nearly 13 million Americans are still out of work, many employers complain that they cannot find the right people to fill myriad job openings — for example, specialists in medical information technology or operators of computer-controlled manufacturing machinery.

WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Wednesday that the central bank retains its modest expectations for the U.S. economy this year, despite some recent signs of stronger growth. Bernanke said the recent rise in oil prices also had not shifted the Fed’s view that the economy will expand 2.2 percent to 2.7 percent this year, about the same pace as during the second half of last year. He acknowledged that rising oil prices are “likely to push up inflation temporarily while reducing consumers’ purchasing power.” But the Fed expects the overall pace of increases in prices and wages to remain “subdued,” Bernanke said in testimony before the House Committee on Financial Services. Some economists see evidence that the pace of growth is increasing. The Bureau of Economic Analysis, an arm of the federal government, said Wednesday that the economy grew at an annual rate of 3 percent in the last three months of 2011, somewhat higher than its initial estimate of 2.8 percent. The unemployment rate has declined to 8.3 percent in January from 9.1 percent last July. See Fed / B3

It’s time to apply the breaks on taxes By Gail MarksJarvis Chicago Tribune

You probably dread sitting down with your tax return, but give it your full attention this year because it might be one of your last chances to partake in about $450 billion in tax breaks slated to disappear at the end of this year. With the federal government scrounging for money and desperate to relieve a mounting deficit, lawmakers are circling some favorite tax breaks like vultures. During the past couple of years, they have tried to spur an anemic economy by putting a little more of your income back into your pocket instead of routing it to taxes. But that has strained tax coffers, while unemployed people and struggling businesses have earned less and, consequently, paid less than usual in taxes. As the economy recovers slowly, stimulus is ending. The bill is coming due for the relief that some taxpayers have been afforded. And the so-called Bush tax cuts, passed in 2001 and 2003 while George W. Bush was president, also are to expire at the end of this year. See Taxes / B3

TH U R SD AY, MARCH 1, 2012 • THE BULLETIN

Taxes Continued from B1 Without action by Congress to extend the Bush cuts, people could be surprised next year by higher taxes and slimmeddown deductions and credits. Among the changes: tax rates rising, married individuals paying higher taxes than singles with the same income, steeper taxes on investments and less relief for parents raising children. On the face of it, low- and middle-income people shouldn’t have to worry because Democrats have vowed to keep tax cuts in place for individuals with incomes under $200,000 and couples under $250,000. And Republican leaders have said they don’t want higher taxes on anyone. But the future of the tax system is in flux as lawmakers squabble about how to tame a deficit so intense that it prompted Standard & Poor’s to lower the United States’ credit rating in August. Without action, the nation’s credit rating could be slashed further. That’s an issue for every taxpayer, because a lower credit rating will mean more of your taxes will have to go toward paying interest on the government’s debts. And that can be a nasty spiral. If some lawmakers get their way, they will scratch the tax system as you now know it, get rid of loopholes and re-create a system that will raise more money. Because it will be so different from the past, the system could camouflage the fact that some people will lose credits and deductions they valued. But if the government is going to raise more in taxes, some will have to pay more. Many analysts think you could reach Dec. 31 without

Fed Continued from B1 But the Fed has remained cautious, and Bernanke reiterated Wednesday a familiar list of reasons for that stance, including the depressed condition of the housing market and turbulence in Europe. “The recovery of the U.S. economy continues, but the pace of expansion has been uneven and modest by historical standards,” Bernanke said. He noted that the Fed does not expect “further substantial declines” in the unemployment rate this year. As a result, he said the Fed

Changes to watch for Among the tax cuts scheduled to disappear or change soon are: • Child tax credit. Parents with children can get a credit of $1,000 per child for 2011, but it’s slated to be cut in the 2013 tax year. • Energy saving. An energy credit for home improvements like insulated windows and efficient air conditioning runs out after the 2011 tax year. You can claim up to $500 for the 2011 tax year, but not if you claimed $1,500 previously. • Local sales tax. Taxpayers can deduct their state and local sales tax instead of state income tax, but the option is set to disappear for the 2012 tax year. • Alternative minimum tax. Congress adjusted this costly income generator for the 2011 tax year so it doesn’t snare middle-income people, but without a permanent fix for inflation, millions more could be taxed in 2012. • College tuition. Deducting tuition ends after the 2011

ture years, she said. The highest-income taxpayers could see today’s top 35 percent rate jump to 39.6 percent or higher. They fear new charges, like the 3.8 percent surcharge expected on income from investments, to help shore up Medicare, Sarafa said. “People have a lot of concerns about increasing taxes and wonder who will be considered wealthy.” As the affluent take action to bolster their finances for the future, people of all incomes should be sure to at least capture as many deductions and credits as they can this year.

remains committed to continuing its economic stimulus efforts, keeping short-term interest rates near zero and maintaining a large portfolio of Treasurys and mortgage bonds to further reduce longterm rates, holding down borrowing costs for businesses and consumers. Bernanke gave no indication that the Fed is considering new efforts. Indeed, his remarks suggested that the Fed’s attention is shifting to the possibility that the recovery is outpacing its expectations. Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency

Economics, a forecasting firm in Valhalla, N.Y., said in a note to clients that Bernanke was more upbeat than he had expected. “Mr. Bernanke did not make a clean break from his previous, glum view of the economy, but his position has shifted a bit,” he wrote. “This sounds like the start of the beginning of a process.”

knowing how your income will be treated in the 2013 tax year. Still, high-income taxpayers are not waiting for the ax to fall. They are taking actions now to transfer wealth to family members in ways that may insulate it from higher estate taxes later. Business owners are considering selling out this year, when the tax might be lower than in the future, said Anita Sarafa, managing director of JPMorgan Private Bank. And affluent people are converting regular IRAs into Roth IRAs so they can pay taxes at rates that might be lower than in fu

Last year Tom Hickman, a city of Bend engineer, told representatives of Bend breweries that downtown, the west side of town, the south side and the north side are limited in sewer capacity, according to The Bulletin’s archives. But it hasn’t stopped the Central Oregon brewery scene from continuing to swell. In Prineville, Solstice Brewing Co., which began operating a pub last year, is planning to start brewing its own beer by the summer. Former Deschutes Brewery Brewmaster Larry Sidor is working with partners to build a new brewery in the middle of Bend. And Paul Arney, a former Deschutes assistant brewmaster, is putting the finishing touches on The Ale Apothecary, his brewery west of the city limits.

Jason Randles, Deschutes Brewery’s digital marketing manager, views Boneyard’s growth as part of a regional story. “Everyone’s growing,” he said. “Everyone can’t brew enough beer and brew it fast enough. It’s great.” Growth at Boneyard and at other Central Oregon breweries is even inspiring the smallest of beer-making ventures. Dean Wise wants to expand his Below Grade Brewing home-based nanobrewery in northwest Bend, which began selling beer last year. “Hopefully in the not-toodistant future we can have something that’s a bit larger, to satisfy that hopefully bigger group of people out there who are looking for our products,” Wise said.

an enemy in Google, which has the most popular cellphone operating system in Android, but does not have a strong presence in software for computers. Part of Google’s strategy is to make up for that by offering sites and services on the Web that tie in with Android devices. This week the company unveiled a version of its Web browser, Chrome, that lets users synchronize their Web searches between their mobile devices and computers. In the case of Apple’s next version of its computer operating system, called Mountain Lion, Apple has added several features that were previously mobile-only. It has revamped the Mac’s iChat software to be called Messages and made it work with the iMessage texting software in iPads and iPhones. Mountain Lion, which is due out this summer, will also include Notification Center, a mobile feature that consolidates the cacophony of incoming email messages, chat messages and online friend requests into a single window pane. With Windows 8, which became available in a preview version Wednesday, the inspiration Microsoft is draw-

ing from its Windows Phone software for smartphones is striking. Windows 8 uses the same touch-friendly interface that Microsoft uses in Windows Phone. The interface, known as Metro, features a mosaic of tiles that can be tapped to start up applications, and that often spring to life with photos, emails and other new content from the Internet. Windows 8 is intended to run both on tablet devices operated exclusively through a touchscreen and on more traditional computers controlled mainly by a keyboard and mouse. And Windows 8 users will be able to switch from the Metro interface to a more traditional-looking Windows desktop if they wish. Bill Flora, a former Microsoft designer who was involved in creating Metro, said Microsoft needed to give users both options because it doesn’t want to alienate the vast numbers of people who are used to the traditional Windows appearance. “It’s such a huge aircraft carrier they are trying to move,” Flora said. “They want to carry people along rather than make a clean break.”

Continued from B1 The companies hope this strategy will give them added leverage in the market for tablets and smartphones, which is growing to rival the market for personal computers. And it could also help them sell more computers or, in Microsoft’s case, software for computers. People who buy an iPad or iPhone, for example, might be more inclined to also buy a Mac computer if they work together seamlessly and have features that operate the same way on both devices. For Apple, which still has only a small share of the computer business, that could be a big advantage. In Microsoft’s case, it needs to defend its traditional dominance of the PC operating system business with software that is versatile enough to also run on tablet computers. This idea of a “continuum of computing” across various devices has long been “a promise of the future,” said Carolina Milanesi, a research analyst who covers the mobile industry for Gartner. “But now it is critical for success among consumers.” Apple and Microsoft share Change your mind. Change your life.

Continued from B1 The company will continue to deliver kegs to businesses in Oregon and Washington and fill growlers on-site. Boneyard has put off its plans to can beer because meeting the demand of its accounts is a higher priority, Lawrence said. He attributes the company’s success to a hot market for craft brewing, a cool brand and, above all, tasty products. Boneyard’s biggest seller is its hoppy and citrustinged RPM India pale ale, Lawrence said. The brewery’s expansion into northeast Bend makes sense on a number of fronts other than sales growth. Other Bend breweries are making forays into or expanding in that part of town — 10 Barrel and Old Mill Brew Wërks.

tax year, but even better college credits — such as the American Opportunity Tax Credit — run out after the 2012 tax year, said Bob Meighan, vice president of Intuit’s TurboTax. • Capital gains and dividends. For the lowest income group of taxpayers, there is no tax on capital gains, and others pay 15 percent at most for 2011. But after 2012, capital gains taxes are expected to rise to 20 percent, and dividends could be taxed like earned income, at 39.6 percent for highest income taxpayers. • Teaching supplies. Teachers can receive a tax break for items purchased for the classroom up to $250, but after doing your 2011 tax return, that will be gone. • So-called marriage penalty. After 2012, two married people are expected to have a lower deduction than single people, so a married couple could end up owing more tax than two singles with about the same combined income.

Michael Appleton / New York Times News Service

Stacey Horricks enrolled in a digital media marketing program at New York University and landed a full-time job as a digital strategist with the JAR Group in Newark, N.J.

Jobs Continued from B1 All told, the nation’s employers have 3.4 million job openings, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics — a number of jobs that if filled could cut the unemployment rate, currently 8.3 percent, to around 6 percent. Realizing this, many politicians, businesses and economic development officials are pressing schools with continuing-education programs to do their utmost to upgrade workers’ skills. Not only is the effort helping the jobless find work and employers find workers, it is also helping to lift the hobbled economy and increase the nation’s industrial competitiveness, meaning, presumably, fewer jobs lost to China, India and other countries. Continuing-education programs often give students certificates attesting to their upgraded skills without giving them formal academic credits or degrees.

Trying to ‘skill up’ Sensitive to employers’ needs, Northern Virginia Community College, with six campuses and more than 75,000 students, has begun offering continuing-education programs in cybersecurity to help protect computer networks, telephone systems and the power grid. And with satellite and computer data ever more plentiful, the school has expanded its courses in geospatial information systems, which can help federal agents track terrorists or alert transportation officials where deer commonly cross roads and cause accidents. “The old ways of describing continuing education don’t fit anymore,� Templin said. “Most of our students are adults who are there to skill up and change careers. They permeate the entire institution and everything we do.� Henry Merrill, president of the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, sees a common denominator in what schools are offering and students are pursuing. “People have really been going where the money is,� he said. “The liberal arts and humanities kind of continuingeducation programs haven’t been as attractive to people. Schools haven’t worked as hard to keep them alive and enroll people in them, not nearly as much as programs that have some connection to workplace skills and professional development.�

Mapping out a future After completing a fouryear stint in the Army in 2008, Ian Sullivan, 30, enrolled at Northern Virginia Community College to “skill up� in geo-

Ahead of the wave President Barack Obama has recognized the important role that the nation’s 1,200 community colleges and their continuing-education programs play in supplying employers with workers possessing in-demand skills. “Everybody in America should be able to get those skills at a community college,� Obama said in a Feb. 13 speech at Northern Virginia Community College. “Companies looking to hire should be able to count on these schools to provide them with a steady stream of workers qualified to fill those specific jobs.� In that speech, Obama proposed creating an $8 billion Community College to Career Fund, with the goal of training 2 million workers for good-paying jobs in growing industries. Stacey Horricks opted to return to school after leaving her job overseeing the production of background music tracks for television programs and video games. With a longtime interest in marketing, she decided to enroll in a six-course program at New York University in digital media marketing. For her course in “digital strategy,� she and several classmates collaborated on an elaborate PowerPoint presentation proposing how the L’Oreal company’s Diesel

brand, popular with many men, could create and market a fragrance aimed at women 18 to 24. With that 43-slide presentation in hand, Horricks, 35, applied for several unpaid internships, and to her surprise, landed a full-time paying job as a digital strategist with the JAR Group, an interactive marketing firm, before she had even completed the NYU program. Explaining her switch to digital marketing, she said, “I was looking at video games and the interactive marketing they do, and I wanted to go in that direction and be in front of the wave, instead of being crushed by it.�

Reacting to the market In New Jersey, Rutgers University has “as many students each year in continuing education — 50,000 — as we do each year in all of our degree programs,� said David Finegold, Rutgers’ senior vice president for lifelong learning — its term for continuing education. Rutgers plays a major role in what New Jersey calls its Talent Networks. These networks, established in six key sectors including pharmaceuticals and transportation and logistics, work to match laidoff workers and new graduates with employers’ needs. The networks’ coordinators often turn to Rutgers or other state colleges for their expertise and statewide reach to find people with the right skills or to provide courses that help jobless workers qualify for openings. At the same time, the Talent Networks help Rutgers identify which fields its continuing education programs should address. “There’s certainly been high demand in health care,� Finegold said. “Virtually all the employment growth over the past decade in New Jersey has been in health care.� At Miami Dade College, the provost, Rolando Montoya, said that school officials were in “constant communications with the Chamber of Commerce and different industries in the private sector about their employment needs.� He said that the health care industry was booming in Florida, just as it is in New Jersey, and his school had broadened its continuing-education programs to meet that sector’s demand. “One advantage of continuing education is we have the flexibility to put something together relatively fast,� Montoya said. “When we are working with associate degrees or college credits, we have to go through a very rigorous academic review. That takes time. For continuing education, we can react very quickly to the opportunity.�

spatial information systems. Sullivan, a 2004 graduate of James Madison University, where he majored in geology, did a lot of mapping work while in the Army, using data from satellites and drones to help build bases and otherwise assist the U.S. military surge in Iraq. “I found I knew just enough to get myself in trouble,� he said. “I could make simplified maps, but I didn’t understand the science behind it. Very quickly I realized I needed additional education to bring myself up to the same level as other geography professionals.� Over two years of classes — he said he much preferred in-person classroom study to taking courses online — he learned how to use mountains of electronic data from satellites and aircraft to make elaborate two- and three-dimensional maps showing roads, buildings, railroads, even fire hydrants. “I paid about $350 a semester, less than $2,000 to acquire the additional skills,� said Sullivan, who obtained his certificate in geospatial technology in December. “It was obviously a good deal.� He has already found a job doing sophisticated mapping work for BAE Systems, a company that develops defense, security and aerospace systems.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., chided government-sponsored lenders Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae on Wednesday for refusing to consider marking down the debt owed by homeowners whose mortgages are underwater. “In the third quarter of 2011, 18 percent of the home mortgages that were renegotiated by banks involved principal reduction,” he said. “(This) is part of why there is a bit of criticism of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac basically saying that

that’s off limits.” Many economists maintain that principal reduction, or marking down the IN D.C. amount owed on a mortgage, is the most efficient way to revive the struggling housing market. If a house with a $200,000 mortgage is now worth $150,000, it is better for the lender to reset the mortgage to $150,000, proponents argue. By refinancing at the lower level, more homeowners will be able to keep up with their

mortgages and avoid default. The lender may lose $50,000, but that is better than foreclosure, which reduces the overall value even more and helps create a glut of empty homes, which drag down housing prices even further. “Banks have been very reluctant to mark down a mortgage here and there for fear that regulators will mark down everything on their books, at which point some banks — very large financial institutions — will be bankrupt overnight,” he said.

Alleged horse abuser Budget committee regular released, ordered announces bid for council to avoid animals BEND

By Nick Grube The Bulletin

A volunteer who’s worked for years to trim Bend’s budget and find money for police officers and firefighters announced Wednesday he’s running for Bend City Council. Victor Chudowsky, 50, says he will run for the seat currently held by Tom Greene. Greene announced last November that he will run for Alan Unger’s seat on the Deschutes County Commission. Chudowsky said he wants to join the City Council because he’s concerned about Bend becoming too expensive, especially for those who have lost jobs or become “underemployed” during the economic downturn.

“I want to stress that my theme to everything is affordability ... cities, one problem with them is they tend to get more expensive as they grow.” — Victor Chudowsky, candidate, Bend City Council

“I want to stress that my theme to everything is affordability,” he said. “American cities, one problem with them is they tend to get more expensive as they grow.” Chudowsky holds a doctorate in political science from the University of Connecticut and owns Caldera Research, a local firm that analyzes education data to help inform policy decisions and rate the effectiveness of school

programs. He’s served on a number of city committees over the years, including the budget committee and the public safety funding committee — which was charged with finding money to hire more police officers and firefighters. City officials have said the police and fire departments are both understaffed. See Chudowsky / C2

PRINEVILLE — A Crook County judge authorized the conditional release of a Powell Butte caretaker arrested on multiple animal neglect charges Wednesday, as long as he stays away from animals. Crook County Sheriff’s Sgt. James Savage said several more ranch employees have been indicted on animal neglect allegations, although additional information wasn’t available Wednesday. Timothy Luke Coffia, 35, pleaded not guilty to 20 counts of second-degree animal neglect in late January

following a police search of a Powell Butte ranch and the seizure of 11 malnourished horses under Coffia’s care. The ranch’s owner — Robert Gruntz — and other employees were arrested on animal neglect charges after police raided the ranch in 2009, but Crook County Circuit Court halted the trial after determining there wasn’t enough evidence to warrant a search of Gruntz’s property. The Oregon Court of Appeals has since reversed the lower court’s decision, and it is unclear whether the recent indictments stem from the 2009 charges. See Neglect case / C2

Chudowsky Continued from C1 One area where Chudowsky would like to see the city save money is infrastructure projects. Over the next five years, the city has more than $200 million worth of projects planned to upgrade its water, sewer and road systems.

Mortgages Continued from C1 It will be easier to fund principal reduction using some of last month’s $25 billion settlement with banks that allegedly engaged in widespread foreclosure fraud, he said. Merkley’s remarks came during a housing policy summit hosted by the National Journal, where he was joined by Sen. Johnny Isakson, RGa., on a panel. Earlier, Shaun Donovan, secretary of Housing and Urban Development, told the summit audience than an estimated one in five American mortgages remains underwater. Low values in the housing market are a drag on economic recovery, in part because people can’t relocate to accept new jobs because they can’t sell their houses, he said. According to figures from the Federal Reserve, American homeowners have collectively lost more than $7 trillion in equity from peak values in 2006 since the housing bubble burst. Isakson noted that the housing market has declined more during this crisis, with values

insurance coverage plans. One of the sticking points has been whether school district employees would be allowed to opt out of a statewide insurance pool and participate in the exchange. Under the bill’s latest version, school district employees could opt out of the Oregon Educators Benefit Board and participate in the exchange starting in 2015, according to Tim Raphael, with the governor’s office. Both the exchange and

early childhood bills still need to pass out of a committee and both chambers. Lawmakers seemed hopeful Wednesday afternoon they could wrestle foreclosureprotection bills from partisan gridlock. However, foreclosure bills, the budget and other bigticket items such as a bill that would draw and store winter flows from the Columbia River remain unresolved. Representatives worked through a slew of bills Wednes-

day afternoon that had majority support. Lawmakers in the House approved a bill to provide a tax credit for ranchers who lose livestock to wolves. The so-called Oregon Investment Act also sailed through the chamber. That bill creates a new board, the Oregon Growth Board, to coordinate the state’s economic development efforts. The idea is to coordinate existing state economic development programs and use state

money to help increase capital for those in the private sector. Other bills passed Wednesday afternoon include one creating a work group to study state universities’ governing boards and another aimed at reducing middle managers in state agencies. Constitutionally, lawmakers have 35 days, or until March 6, before they must sine die, the Latin term for adjournment.

ponent from the budget and choose a cheaper alternative to water filtration to meet federal mandates. “I’m really concerned with the burden being put on the ratepayers,” Chudowsky said, referring to the annual doubledigit percent increases in city utility bills citizens will see over the next several years as the result of water and sewer projects. He said he’s met with members of the Stop SWIPing Ratepayers Dollars political action committee, which formed to support coun-

cil candidates who oppose the city’s surface water improvement project. That committee has raised a little more than $2,000 so far, but Chudowsky said he has yet to receive its endorsement.

Four of the seven City Council seats are up for election in November, including those currently held by Greene, Jim Clinton, Kathie Eckman and Mayor Jeff Eager. Elections are by position, meaning candidates must choose which seat they want to win. To qualify for the election, candidates must file a prospective petition with the city recorder and gather 150 signatures from registered voters. Candidates must also be city residents who have lived within city limits for at least one year and are registered to vote.

People interested in serving on the City Council can begin the filing process May 30. They have until Aug. 28 to file completed petitions. Each City Council term is four years and includes a $200-per-month stipend. Additional information on participating in City Council elections can be obtained from the city recorder’s office, located on the second floor of City Hall at 710 N.W. Wall Street. The phone number is 541-388-5517.

‘Rondo’s’ council bid Bend resident Ronald “Rondo” Boozell has also announced his candidacy for Greene’s seat. Boozell has been pushing a ballot initiative to restrict city resources from being used to punish people for possession of any amount of marijuana.

“The American people are saying: ‘Look, the government ... responded generously and ... immediately to help the largest financial institutions. Why can’t they enable American homeowners to refinance to low interest rates and help reset the housing market for families?’ It is an absolutely fair question.” — Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.

dropping by 33 percent, than they did during the Great Depression, when they fell by 31 percent. Merkley suggested the possibility of giving a tax credit to would-be homeowners so that more people can take advantage of low housing prices and low interest rates. In addition, the bankruptcy process could be altered so that judges could have the ability to rework mortgages, the way they do on other loans, he said. “Essentially, the American people are saying: Look, the government ... responded generously and ... immediately to help the largest financial institutions. Why can’t they enable American homeowners to refinance to low interest

rates and help reset the housing market for families?” he said. “It is an absolutely fair question.” Along with education and small business ownership, owning a home is one of the main ways that the middle class accumulates wealth, Merkley said. By allowing a predatory subprime mortgage to evolve, the government is partially responsible for taking an avenue for middle-class Americans to

build equity and turning it into a scam, he said. In response, the government is in danger of imposing such burdensome restrictions on mortgages that working families will no longer be able to afford to buy a house, he said. A 20 percent down payment on a $200,000 home would be a non-starter for a lot of people, he said. “Try to find a working-class family that has $40,000 to put down on a house,” he said. “People feel locked into their current jobs or locked into their current location. They can’t move to take a job. They feel like not only is the American dream something that they have to start from scratch on … they’re going to have to work the next 10 years just to get back even.” Merkley spokeswoman Julie Edwards said that like banks, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should selectively choose qualHospice Home Health Hospice House Transitions

ified mortgages for principal reduction. But Edward DeMarco, the acting director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency — which oversees Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since the government took over control of the lenders — does not support this policy and it seems unlikely that Congress will pass legislation requiring it, she said. “The Senate should partner with the administration to use every lever we have to encourage banks — and just as importantly, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — to allow for principal reduction and refinancing strategies for families who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth,” she said. “It’s essential to keeping families in their homes and reducing the tremendous debt overhang that is holding back economic recovery.” — Reporter: 202-662-7456, aclevenger@bendbulletin.com

Occupy Portland takes to streets again By Nigel Duara The Associated Press

Occupy Portland demonstrators took to downtown streets again Wednesday, pushing through lines of police and chanting in front of businesses amid forceful physical collisions between protesters and police on bicycles. Police said seven people were arrested. The protesters said the march was aimed at the nonviolent disruption of businesses in protest of the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC. Crowd estimates ranged from roughly 500 to about 1,000. “A-L-E-C, that is not democracy,” protesters chanted as they stood in front of a Verizon Wireless store, which they said is affiliated with ALEC. The protesters said ALEC is responsible for providing pro-business model legislation that is put forward by state lawmakers, including those

“ALEC is proud to play our part by providing a constructive forum for state legislators and private sector leaders to discuss and exchange practical solutions that help put America back to work. We are disappointed that some people would choose rhetoric over solutions, but we certainly respect their right to do so.” — Kaitlyn Buss, spokeswoman, American Legislative Exchange Council

in Oregon, to the detriment of voters. When reached by email Wednesday, ALEC spokeswoman Kaitlyn Buss said the protests are misguided. “ALEC is proud to play our part by providing a constructive forum for state legislators and private sector leaders to discuss and exchange practical solutions that help put America back to work,” Buss said in a statement. “We are disappointed that some people would choose rhetoric over

solutions, but we certainly respect their right to do so.” At least twice, police gave way as protesters used a row of cardboard banners to push through police lines. After about an hour, police on bicycles stopped confronting protesters and instead began to form lines in the street parallel to the march column that blocked cars and allowed the marchers to pass through busy streets. Police in riot gear could be seen riding on the backs of po-

lice vans. One officer on a bike was shoved in the face with a sign, and occasional pushing matches between protesters and police erupted at busy intersections, but the march remained otherwise peaceful. The seven arrests included three people who bike-locked themselves at the Wells Fargo Center, two arrested along the route for criminal mischief and two at the Bank of America for trespassing, Lt. Robert King said. The march followed the trashing overnight of a southeast Portland bank by vandals who tossed rocks at glass windows and doors. A communique taking responsibility challenged the protesters to take violent action. The protest marched in front of the Oregonian newspaper, where three employees stood outside while protesters chanted “Tell the truth,” then continued to the Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon headquarters.

Deputy accused of sex with inmate

Suspect held in fatal Gresham stabbing

Cancer fraud suspect pleads not guilty

PORTLAND — The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office says a corrections deputy has been arrested and jailed on charges of having sexual contact with a woman in custody at the county’s Inverness Jail. A statement from the sheriff’s office identified the deputy as 59-year-old Eddie James Miller, a corrections deputy since 1991. It says the charges are custodial sexual misconduct and official misconduct. Miller pleaded not guilty. The paper quoted officers as saying the encounter occurred in early January, and the inmate reported it to other deputies.

GRESHAM — Gresham police say they’ve made an arrest in a fatal stabbing in an apartment complex. Police responded late Monday night to a report of a bleeding man at an address on East Burnside Street. They found a man who had been injured in a fight. They say 20-year-old Jeffrey Gaboury of Gresham later died at a hospital. Sgt. Claudio Grandjean said Tuesday that Gresham police and the East County Major Crimes Team have arrested 20-year-old Joseph Wedge of Portland in the case.

EUGENE — A Springfield man accused of faking cancer to collect donations pleaded not guilty to felony theft charges Tuesday in Lane County Circuit Court. The charges against 28year-old Charles Werner Embleton were added in a recent grand jury indictment. He was originally charged last fall with theft by deception. Springfield police began investigating Embleton in May when a pizza company reported suspicions about $1,700 in proceeds from a fundraising night at a restaurant.

Police got a court order for his medical records, which failed to confirm a cancer diagnosis.

Keizer police discover loot from burglaries KEIZER — Keizer police investigating burglaries served a search warrant Tuesday night at a residence and made a discovery. They found numerous property items that had been stolen in several burglaries in Keizer, Salem and Marion County. Officers detained five people and arrested a sixth person for an outstanding probation violation. — From wire reports

The Associated Press MEDFORD — An Iranian-A merican man who founded an Islamic charity in Southern Oregon Seda and was convicted of smuggling money to Saudi Arabia was headed for federal prison Wednesday to serve his 33-month sentence, his lawyer said. Pete Seda, also known as Pirouz Sedaghaty, had been released but under electronic monitoring until his deadline to report to prison in Colorado. The 54-year-old was convicted last year of tax fraud and conspiracy, but has appealed. His lawyer, Steve Wax, said Seda, who has been wearing a GPS bracelet while living in Portland, would fly to Colorado to meet Wednesday’s deadline. Prosecutors alleged the money was for Islamic fighters in Chechnya and argued for a longer sentence, but they were not able to convince a judge. Seda was well-known when he lived in Ashland as an arborist and promoter of Islam. He operated the American branch of the Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation. The Federal Correctional Institution of Englewood is

a low-security prison that holds nearly 1,000 inmates 15 miles outside of Denver. Forbes and Money magazine have each called it one of the easiest prisons in which to serve time. A spokesperson disputed Englewood’s reputation. “It doesn’t matter where you go in the Bureau of Prisons, you’ll get similar treatment and amenities,” said John Sell, the prison’s public information officer. Among its inmates are Jeffrey Skilling, former CEO of Enron, serving time for his role in the company’s collapse. Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has asked to be sent to Englewood when he reports to prison March 15, convicted of trying to sell or trade the U.S. Senate seat left vacant when Barack Obama became president. Inmates generally are required to work in the prison, which operates like “a little city,” Sell told the Mail Tribune. Seda, who owned an arborist business while in Ashland, could find himself working in jobs ranging from food service to laundry to landscaping, Sell said. But, he said, “We don’t have use for a lot of arborists.”

Suspect in 3 heists guilty of conspiracy The Associated Press PORTLAND — A man pleaded guilty Wednesday after being accused of conspiring with his parents in thefts including the faked hijacking of an armored car that netted $3 million. Vincent Cabello pleaded guilty in federal court to two conspiracy counts involving bank larceny and money laundering. He and his parents were accused in three heists that investigators said were inside jobs disguised as robberies. Two involved armored cars that Cabello’s father drove and a third was at a security company where the son worked. The thefts date to 1995 and 1998 in Milwaukee and 2005 in Portland. The three family members were indicted in 2010. Cabello’s parents, Archie, 64, and Marian, 59, have pleaded not guilty. They face trial in April on an array of

charges, including bank larceny, possession of stolen bank funds, making false statements on credit applications and conspiracy to commit money laundering. They are to appear next week in court on a new sealed complaint. Court documents say that in December 2005, Archie Cabello was driving for Oregon Armored Service when he pretended that his car had been hijacked at gunpoint as he made a pickup in southeast Portland. He told the FBI that two men made off with about $3 million. Federal agents found the story fishy, especially after learning about the Cabellos’ connections to the Milwaukee crimes. One was the 1998 theft of more than $700,000 from a vault at a Milwaukee security company where Vincent Cabello was a shipping-and-receiving clerk. Cabello was scheduled to be sentenced on June 6.

Freighter captain accused of drinking ASTORIA — The Coast Guard has taken custody of the captain of a 738-foot-long freighter after determining his blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit for commercial vessel operators. Petty Officer Shawn Eggert says the Coast Guard acted Tuesday, before the Maltese freighter Laconia could travel up the Columbia River from Astoria. Eggert says Customs and Border Protection agents were inspecting the ship when Coast Guard officers arrived. Customs agents told the Coast Guard they suspected the unidentified captain was intoxicated. Eggert says Customs agents mentioned seeing open alcohol containers in the captain’s stateroom. The Coast Guard says tests showed the captain’s bloodalcohol level to be above the commercial vessel operator’s limit of .04 percent. Eggert would not say what it was. Eggert says the captain will be taken to a federal detention center in Portland. The Coast Guard ordered the freighter to find a replacement captain before leaving Astoria.

Chairwoman Publisher Editor-in-Chief Editor of Editorials

he budget agreement reached among Oregon legislators and the governor is, many agree, as good a deal as could be expected. That said, while it bal-

ances the state’s budget for the remainder of the biennium, it leaves unanswered serious questions about the state’s financial future. Among the highlights: K-12 education will face no further cuts during this budget period, which ends in June 2013. No prison will close. Social services, including welfare, child welfare, long-term care and services for the disabled, also will escape largely unscathed. And, the state will end the current budget cycle with money in the bank. Accomplishing all that required some fancy footwork, as you can imagine: State agencies will be required to trim at least $28 million in middle management and public affairs jobs. The Oregon Innovation Council budget will fall by $400,000 and at least 10 state police detective jobs will disappear. A new state hospital will sit empty, saving $19.6 million, and all $56 million the state received in the Phillip Morris tobacco lawsuit will go to the current budget. Trust funds for those with developmental disabilities and mental health problems were raided, as were a variety of other accounts. Cuts aside, much of the money used to fill the budget gap comes

from sources that are one-time deals, including the largest single chunk, that tobacco settlement. Too, the state can hardly afford, over time, to build prisons and hospitals and then never use them to capacity in a pound-foolish and penny-wise attempt to stay in the black. So what’s not to like? Lawmakers and the governor have done precious little to put the state on firm and sustainable financial ground. The middle-level managers aside, virtually no one took a look at what Oregon does and what it needs to do. No one determined which programs work and which should be given a quick burial. Gov. John Kitzhaber once believed that work must be done if Oregon is to thrive. He apparently no longer does, and a majority of lawmakers may well never have believed it. That’s unfortunate. While one-time fixes have solved the state’s immediate problems, they’re not what’s needed to assure we have a strong economic future.

Don’t borrow without a repayment plan

W

hen voters rejected a $548 million bond proposal last May, the Portland school district was left with a big problem: It needed part of the money to pay off earlier borrowing for school roofs and to buy a school it was renting from investors, according to a report in The Oregonian. Now the board has decided to compound the problem by borrowing money not just to handle those obligations, but also to replace the heating systems in 47 schools at a cost of $9 million. The board doesn’t know how it will repay the new loan either, Deputy Chief Financial Officer David Wynde told The Oregonian, but is considering sending a new bond issue to voters as soon as November. Borrowing money when you don’t know how you’ll repay it — and counting on voters to say yes after the fact — doesn’t seem like prudent fiscal planning. It’s also insulting to voters. They said no, but at least part of the money will be spent anyway. That will set up

a new problem if voters reject the next bond proposal. The loan for the roofs is $26 million, and it’s due for repayment. The school purchase is for Rosa Parks Elementary, built with money from investors in 2006. The district has been renting it for $42,000 a month with a plan to buy it for $9 million by October 2012. If it doesn’t make the purchase, the rent would nearly double, Wynde told The Oregonian. Those obligations already exist, and if the district’s only way to handle them is to borrow anew, there’s no obvious alternative. But board members should learn from those mistakes and avoid repeating them by adding a new project. The argument for the new heating systems is that they’d be more efficient and less polluting, and would pay for themselves in about five years. Those are good arguments for investment if you have the money, but not if you have to borrow and don’t know how you’ll repay. The board should ask the voters and abide by their decision.

My Nickel’s Worth We make predators mascots out of respect

Foreclosure legislation could help homeowners

The Bulletin has recently seen several letters from wolf-haters, likely part of an organized campaign. This got me thinking about the irony of our attitudes toward such predators. On the one hand we celebrate these wild animals by making them the mascots of our high schools and universities. Almost 900 high schools and 50 colleges in the USA honor the tiger and a similar number have named mascots after the panther, both wild and ferocious killers. In Bend we have the Bend High lava bears and the Mountain View cougars; in Redmond we have the panthers. Wolves, too, are honored as school mascots. Western Oregon University has “Wolfie,� whose cutesie nickname is overshadowed by his fearsome image on T-shirts and school publications. Tualatin High School students cheer for the timberwolves. (I myself was a member of the timberwolf patrol as a Corvallis Boy Scout in the 1950s.) Yet in spite of our overwhelming choice of ferocious animals as team mascots, many call for their utter extermination in the real world. How can we admire such animals so much that we adopt them as school mascots at the same time we seek to wipe them out? Wild animals, even ferocious top predators, have a place in our world. They remind us of virtues we seek for our children, like strength and tenacity. They deserve our protection on an increasingly human-dominated earth. In return I believe that ranchers deserve fair compensation when predators take their livestock. We can have both wolves and cows. John Cushing Bend

Home foreclosures are a tragic reality or looming threat for many struggling working people and families in Bend and throughout Oregon. Even as there are some initial glimmers of economic recovery, foreclosure rates remain high. In addition to the catastrophic direct effect on individuals and families, there is also the broader negative impact on home values with the glut of foreclosed homes. There is certainly some shared responsibility for this unfortunate state of affairs, and it seems certain that it will take some time to return to a healthy housing market. But there are just as certainly some reasonable measures that we should take more immediately toward avoiding foreclosures where possible. The state Legislature is considering a number of bills dealing with foreclosure reform, including implementing a program of preforeclosure mediation. This would provide homeowners facing foreclosure or those deeply underwater a chance to sit down with their lender and a neutral third party to discuss alternatives. This seems like a reasonable and mutually beneficial step toward stemming some of the foreclosure landslide and is a practice already in place in several other states. Foreclosure reform seems even more necessary in light of accumulating evidence of irregularities in foreclosure proceedings on the part of mortgage holding and servicing institutions. Our legislators should act to help individuals and communities struggling with foreclosures. Banks played an active part in the speculation that inflated the hous-

ing bubble — they should be as willing to help now that the bubble has burst. Nathan Hovekamp Candidate for state representative Bend

Let voters decide if they want to elect mayor Hi. My name is Charles. I lived in Bend. I want to vote for my mayor, but I cannot do that. Bend does not have a mayoral election. So I decided to write a letter about the possibility of a Bend mayoral election. The Bend City Council has until August to decide whether to put a charter amendment on the November ballot to allow voters to decide if they want to have a Bend mayoral election. I hope the City Council will decide to put the charter amendment on the ballot. I don’t think it will, and I will tell you why. This month the City Council had an opportunity to put the charter amendment on the May ballot. It voted 4-3 to not even consider doing this. I will refer to the four as the AD4: the anti-democracy four. I think most residents of Bend want a mayoral election, and I think that number is growing quickly. I think an elected mayor has much more authority than a nonelected mayor. This year people all over the world are laying down their lives to bring democracy to their countries. I think that if you want a Bend mayoral election, the logical step would be to vote for anyone who is running against one of the AD4: Tom Greene, Kathie Eckman, Mark Capell and Scott Ramsay.

Cigarette tax hike can help cure 2 of Greece’s ills By Peter Orszag Bloomberg News

A

mong all the trials and tribulations that define Greece these days, one that has received relatively little attention is its sky-high smoking rate. Greece’s is the highest in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Greece is an outlier also in that its smoking rate has risen significantly over the past decade. The country’s fiscal crisis may therefore have a silver lining: It has forced the government to raise tobacco taxes modestly, and this already appears to be reducing smoking rates. Still, much more could be done. In 2009, a shocking 40 percent of Greeks smoked. That is almost twice the OECD average of 22 percent. In France and Spain, the smoking rate was 26 percent. In the United States the rate is half that in Greece. The Greek rate was 6 percentage points higher than even Russia, the only other developed economy whose rate was more than 30 percent. In Greece, smoking rates exceeded 30 percent even for medical students, a study by

Constantine Vardavas and Anthony Kafatos of the University of Crete found. Perhaps even more troubling is that, in the past decade, the share of adult Greeks who smoke rose by almost 6 percent. Over that period, in the OECD as a whole, smoking prevalence declined by 18 percent. The only other developed country that experienced an increase in smoking was the Czech Republic — but Greece’s rise was larger. The health effects are predictable. Data from the International Agency for Research on Cancer show an ageadjusted death rate from lung cancer of 48 per 100,000 Greek males. In Britain, that rate is 33 percent lower. In France and the United States, it’s 20 percent lower than in Greece. One of the causes of high and rising smoking rates in Greece has been relatively low cigarette prices. In 2011, a pack of 20 premium cigarettes cost a little more than $5 in Greece, compared with more than $8 in France and more than $11 in Britain and Ireland, according to the Tobacco Manufacturers Association. In

the U.S., prices vary significantly by state; in New York, a pack costs more than $10. The prices in Greece have reflected relatively low tax rates compared with other European countries. Before the recent policy changes, that pack of 20 cigarettes carried a tax of less than $4. In France, the tax exceeds $6. In Britain, it amounts to almost $9. A variety of evidence suggests that higher taxes on cigarettes reduce smoking rates, especially among teenagers — which is important because people’s lifelong smoking patterns are typically set during their teenage years. That’s why it’s encouraging that in January 2010, in response to the fiscal crisis, the Greek government boosted taxes on cigarettes by about 20 percent. That raised prices for consumers by about 15 percent. Using estimates of the price elasticity for smoking that have been developed by the economist Jonathan Gruber of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and others, that tax increase might reduce overall amounts of smoking by 7 percent — and the reduction in smoking rates would

be perhaps 2 to 3 percentage points. In fact, recent evidence from the Center for Global Tobacco Control at Harvard University suggests that smoking rates have already started to come down in Greece following the tax increase and an ongoing public awareness campaign. But a much larger increase in tax rates could help to both narrow the fiscal gap and further reduce smoking rates. A typical concern about higher cigarette taxes is that they’re regressive: Since lower-income people are much more likely to smoke, a higher tax imposes a larger burden on them. In Greece, surprisingly, smoking rates don’t seem to vary that much by income or education. Researchers at University Medical Center at Rotterdam have found that the lowestincome men in Greece are only 30 percent more likely to smoke than anyone else; for Europe as a whole, lower-income men are 50 percent more likely to smoke. Even more strikingly, in Greece, lower-income women are 40 percent less likely to smoke than other women. For European nations as a whole, lower-

income women are about 10 percent more likely to smoke. The absence of a sizeable smoking gradient by income may partly explain why researchers from the University of Athens and Harvard School of Public Health found that, in Greece, cancer mortality doesn’t vary by socioeconomic status. In the U.S., in contrast, low-income people have significantly higher death rates from cancer. Pronounced declines over the past couple of decades in smoking rates among higher-income Americans have contributed to sharply rising inequality in life expectancy. In Greece, life expectancy also varies significantly by income, but smoking patterns can’t explain it. The same patterns also suggest that higher cigarette taxes wouldn’t be regressive in Greece. Given the dire need for additional revenue, the Greek government should raise tobacco taxes much more than it has so far. — Peter Orszag is vice chairman of global banking at Citigroup and a former director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama administration.

SEATTLE — The once legendary salmon streams of the Pacific Northwest have been battling steep declines in the celebrated fish for years, and nowhere has the challenge been tougher than on the Klamath River — with the fish struggling to survive the perils of dams, drought and water wars as the river flows from Southern Oregon into California. But in a stunning reversal that state wildlife officials are at a loss to fully explain, the river this fall is likely to see nearly 1.6 million chinook salmon, the big, meaty fish most prized by fishermen. The number is a sixfold increase over last year’s levels and several times larger than anything on the charts, which go back to 1996. A strong fall chinook run is also forecast for the Sacramento River, which could see four times the number of fish compared with 2011, or a total of 819,400 fish. The projections were announced this week in Newport by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. They came just a day after U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced that the federal government would not be able to meet a pledge to decide by March whether to remove four hydropower dams on the Klamath; those dams have been blamed for a big share of the salmon’s troubles. The news was welcomed by conservationists and the beleaguered fishing industry of Northern California and Oregon, which has suffered as salmon runs on river after river have been declared threatened or endangered. Environmentalists say the projections vindicate years of efforts, many of them in court, to maintain healthy water flows and better habitat for fish. “Both of those numbers look pretty good,� Steve Williams, deputy administrator

of Oregon Fish and Wildlife’s fish division, said after presenting the figures Tuesday. “They obviously are evidence of good ocean survival conditions that have allowed those fish to thrive and become available this year, potentially some of them, for harvest.� Conservationists have been working for years to improve fish habitat on the Klamath by fighting efforts to draw out water in the Upper Klamath Basin for irrigation. In 2002, diversion of water to agriculture cascaded into other problems that led to the die-off downstream of at least 34,000 fall chinook — probably twice that number — one of the biggest fish kills in Northwest history. “There’s been too much water promised to too many people, and there’s been lots of fights,� said Kristen Boyles, an attorney for Earthjustice in Seattle, who has joined the legal effort to keep more water in the river. But tribes along the river have worked steadily to protect fish habitat. Other stakeholders have negotiated water usage issues and possible removal of dams. And last spring’s abundant rainfall guaranteed sufficient water for migrating juvenile fish even without court fights. State fish managers and fishing industry advocates say good ocean conditions — abundant food and fewer predators — also must have played a role in so robust a predicted run. “Nothing dramatic to my knowledge has changed in the Lower Klamath, but most likely since we’re seeing tremendous response from coho (salmon) as well along the Oregon Coast, that indicates to me that a lot of the improvement is due to survival in ocean conditions along Northern California and throughout Oregon,� Williams said. Healthy stream flows in the Klamath “could easily be a factor,� he added.

Northwest park visitors spent $547M in 2010 SPOKANE, Wash. — Visitors to national parks in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho spent $547 million and supported more than 9,000 jobs in 2010, according to a report released Tuesday by the National Park Service. “The people and the business owners in communities near national parks have always known their economic value,� said Chris Lehnertz, Pacific West director for the park service. “National parks are clean, green fuel for the engine that drives the economy.� Oregon attracted 852,258 visitors who spent $55.2 million at its national parks and nearby communities. The state has five national park units, plus 17 national histor-

ic landmarks, seven national natural landmarks and 1,922 listings on the National Register of Historic Places. Tourism related to those sites supported 1,053 jobs. Those breakdowns are based on a national total of $12 billion spent by 281 million visitors to 394 national parks and nearby communities in 2010, the park service said. The biggest impact was in Washington, which saw 7.3 million visitors spend $264.3 million in Park Service units and nearby communities, the report said. Washington is home to 13 units of the national park system, including Mount Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades national parks.

Washington’s caucuses could be state’s most influential in decades The Seattle Times SEATTLE — Washington state may have an unusually important voice in deciding Barack Obama’s opponent. The state’s GOP presidential caucuses, along with its straw poll, occur Saturday morning. Anyone who is registered to vote and says he or she identifies as a Republican can take part. In theory, this year’s caucus is more influential than any in a long time. “More than any in my lifetime,� said state party Chairman Kirby Wilbur, “and I think I went to my first in 1974.� It’s rare at this time of year, this deep into the presidential contest, that the Republican race is still competitive, still a

drama. Yet the 2012 GOP primary appears more fluid than Snoqualmie Falls. Three of the four candidates — Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum — have recently visited the state; Mitt Romney is scheduled to campaign in Washington state today. Upping the stakes is the disappearance of the presidential primary, scrapped in budget cuts. The primary used to allocate half of Washington’s GOP delegates who nominate a candidate at the Republican National Convention. With no primary, 40 of 43 delegates will be picked through the local caucusand-convention process that begins Saturday.

Redmond bows out of 6A playoffs U.S. forward Clint Dempsey celebrates after scoring during a friendly soccer match against Italy Wednesday.

U.S. gets first win over Italy GENOA, Italy — The United States stunned Italy 1-0 on Wednesday as Clint Dempsey’s second-half goal gave the Americans their first ever victory over the Azzurri in 11 meetings. Dempsey became only the fourth American to score against Italy when he fired past Gianluigi Buffon in the 55th minute, and the U.S. clung on for a memorable win in the friendly international. It is Jurgen Klinsmann’s fifth victory in 10 games as U.S. coach and will also serve as personal revenge for the former Germany great after losing the 2006 World Cup semifinal to eventual champion Italy when in charge of the German national team. “It’s historic for us beating a team of Italy’s level and it’s a very good win,” Klinsmann said. “But what we wanted to do above everything was to learn, to see how we could do against a team like Italy. I think the boys did very, very well, they played great for 90 minutes. And moreover we have young players and they’re growing and it’s from games like this that they do.”

Bulletin staff report SALEM — Despite jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first quarter, Redmond fell to North Salem 85-73 in the first round of the Class 6A boys basketball state playoffs Wednesday, bringing the Panthers’ season to an end. Matt Dahlen scored a season-high 27 points and Tanner Manselle added 15 points and 14 rebounds, but Redmond (11-15) committed 17 turnovers against the Vikings in the road defeat. “(North Salem) ran a 2-2-1 press for most of the game,” said Panthers coach Jon Corbett. “We handled it pretty good, but there were spurts where we made some silly turnovers.” The Vikings (18-8), winners of the Central Valley Conference, led 60-51 at the end of the third quarter and then converted their free throws in the final period to hold on for the victory. North Salem went 27 of 29 from the foul line Wednesday and made 15 of 17 in the fourth quarter. “It was pretty close the whole game,” Corbett

said. “Early in the third it was tied 49-49 and then with about 30 seconds left before the fourth quarter we were down 54-51. They made a little run at the end of the third quarter, though, and all of a sudden it’s a nine-point game (60-51).” Connor Lau added 13 points and Trevor Genz contributed eight points for Redmond in the loss. The Panthers hit 10 three-pointers Wednesday but only went to the foul line 12 times, converting nine free-throw attempts. The Vikings’ backcourt carried North Salem as guards Avry Holmes (26 points) and L.J. Westbrook (24) combined to score 50 points. With the victory, the Vikings advance to the second round of the 6A state playoffs. North Salem will play the winner of today’s game between South Medford and McMinnville in Medford. “I was exceptionally pleased with how the season went,” Corbett said about wrapping up his first season guiding the Panthers. “We’ve laid a really solid foundation for this program in the future.”

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL Report: UCLA is in disarray LOS ANGELES — Players and staff members from the past four UCLA basketball teams say that coach Ben Howland allowed an influx of talented but immature recruits to undermine team discipline and morale as the once-proud program has struggled to live up to its storied history, Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday. The report on Sports Illustrated’s website, which says SI spoke with more than a dozen players and staff members from those teams over the past two months, outlines a program in disarray. Teammates have come to blows, several players routinely used alcohol and drugs — sometimes before practice — and one player intentionally injured teammates but received no punishment, according to the story, which quotes its sources anonymously. “Obviously this is not a great day for our program or for me,” Howland said on a teleconference Wednesday. “I’m responsible for this program and everything that happens in it. If there’s any need to make changes, I will make them.” UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero didn’t answer directly when asked about Howland’s job status. “We’ll go through the rest of the season, and then we’ll sit down and talk about the situation like we always do,” he said on a separate teleconference. — The Associated Press

Darren Roe and his son Ethan watch the sky for “specks” and snow geese in the marsh in southern Oregon. In Klamath County’s late season, hunting is only allowed on private lands. Any public lands or waters owned or controlled by any county, state or federal agency are closed in this special hunt.

hen I opened the door it hit me. Not the scent of the dairy, in the marsh east of Klamath Falls, but the decay, the yellowed orchard grass and the mud. Darren Roe opened the trailer and we shrugged into huge packs of decoys and deposited them on the ground 50 yards away. There was

snow on the marsh, more snow on the wind. We set the speckle-belly decoys in a semicircle with snow geese among them while Darren set up a flock of “socks,” lightweight decoys made of plastic material that bounced in the breeze. Since it was a Saturday, we were joined by 10-year-old Ethan Roe, dressed in waders and bundled against the cold. He dragged decoy bags and adjusted decoys as we put them into play. See Goose / D4

In late winter and early spring when the farmers’ fields are starting to show green, the birds hit the winter wheat, alfalfa and orchard grass. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists use hunters to shift crop damage pressure from private lands to the refuges in the Klamath Basin.

Chamberlain’s 100-point game, 50 years later By Frank Fitzpatrick The Philadelphia Inquirer

PHILADELPHIA — With the 50th anniversary of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game on March 2, 1962, almost here, that long-ago night in Hershey, Pa., has been dissected more thoroughly than a crime-show corpse. Details of the historic event — the ball, the broadcast, the fans, the absence of sports writers, Wilt’s pregame arcade exploits, his postgame ride home, the badly embarrassed New York Knicks, the thoroughly cooperative Philadelphia Warriors — have become so familiar that the enormity of the accomplishment seems somehow diminished. See Chamberlain / D4

S   B Football • Steelers will release Ward: Hines Ward’s constant, ear-toear smile tucked behind a black facemask has been a lasting image for Pittsburgh Steelers fans the past 14 seasons. They won’t see it again. At least, not in a black-and-gold uniform. The franchise’s all-time leader in just about every meaningful receiving category will be released sometime in the next two weeks said president Art Rooney II on the team’s website on Wednesday. A four-time Pro Bowl selection and MVP of the 2006 Super Bowl, Ward will finish his Steelers career with 1,000 catches, 12,083 yards and 85 receiving touchdowns. He helped Pittsburgh to three AFC championships and a pair of Super Bowl wins.

Golf • Woods stares down reporter over Haney book: Tiger Woods had a terse exchange with a reporter over excerpts from former swing coach Hank Haney’s book. The volley ended with Woods refusing to answer the question, staring him down for five seconds and saying sarcastically, “Have a good day.” The topic Wednesday at the Honda Classic was Haney’s contention that Woods seriously thought about becoming a Navy SEAL at the peak of his career.

Tennis • Djokovic, Federer into quarterfinals at Dubai: Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer each won in straight sets Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Dubai Tennis Championships in United Arab Emirates. Djokovic beat Sergiy Stakhovsky of Ukraine 7-6 (5), 6-3, while Federer defeated Feliciano Lopez of Spain 7-5, 6-3. Andy Murray of Britain also reached the final eight with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Marco Chiudinelli of Switzerland.

• NASCAR penalizes Johnson, crew chief: NASCAR issued steep penalties against five-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson and his team for failing the first inspection for the Daytona 500. Crew chief Chad Knaus was fined $100,000 and suspended six races Wednesday, car chief Ron Malec also was barred for six races, and Johnson was docked 25 points, sending him into this weekend’s race last in the Sprint Cup Series standings. The penalties stem from a failed inspection Feb. 17 at Daytona International Speedway. NASCAR said the No. 48 Chevrolet had illegally modified sheet metal between the roof and the side windows, an area known as the C-posts. Hendrick Motorsports immediately said it would appeal, and Knaus and Malec can attend races during the process. Should the penalties stand, Johnson finds himself in a huge hole at the start of the season. He was wrecked just two laps into Monday night’s Daytona 500, and his 42nd-place finish put him 42nd in the standings with two points. The penalty drops him to 43rd in the field, with minus 23 points.

• Reyna, Meola elected to U.S. Hall of Fame: Former U.S. national team captain Claudio Reyna and goalkeeper Tony Meola have been elected to the U.S. National Soccer Hall of Fame. Former defender Desmond Armstrong was elected on the veterans’ ballot and former women’s national team coach Tony DiCicco on the builder ballot, the U.S. Soccer Federation said Wednesday. Reyna, the U.S. captain at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, appeared on 96 percent of the player ballots cast by an electorate that includes Hall of Famers, administrators and media. Meola, starting goalkeeper at the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, was on 90 percent.

Denver Nuggets power forward Al Harrington, left, knocks Portland Trail Blazers small forward Gerald Wallace (3) off his feet while driving to the basket during the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game in Denver.

Blazers fall to Nuggets in return from break The Associated Press DENVER — Ty Lawson’s return to the lineup was just what the ailing Denver Nuggets needed. There’s more relief right around the corner, too. Lawson had 18 points and nine assists, Kenneth Faried scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 104-95 on Wednesday night. Timofey Mozgov had 14 points and nine rebounds and Al Harrington came off the bench to score 13 points and add 10 rebounds for the Nuggets, who ended a twogame skid. “This win will be very important for us,” Nuggets coach George Karl said. “I think we gained some confidence tonight and hopefully we can build on it by finding a way to win on the road.” Lawson missed the past two games with a sprained left ankle and quickly made an impact. He scored 11 points in the fourth quarter, including a key three-pointer late to hold off a surge by Portland. “I wanted to come out strong and aggressive and show everybody I wasn’t hurt,” he said. “When I attack, other people get open.” The Nuggets might get even healthier in the next week with the expected returns of Danilo Gallinari and Nene. Gallinari has missed a month with a severely sprained left ankle and Nene has missed 13 games this season with a heel injury and a left calf strain. Reserve guard Rudy Fernandez could return from a strained lower back as early as Friday. “We’re still hanging in with teams like Oklahoma City, the Clippers, all the top teams and we have three starters hurt,” Lawson said. “Once we get them back, we’re going to be a team everybody’s scared of.” Lawson return was enough against the Trail Blazers, who have lost nine straight and 16 of 17 in Denver. Their only win in that span came on Dec. 16, 2007. They didn’t pose much of a threat Wednesday despite 21 points from Jamal Crawford and 20 points and nine rebounds by LaMarcus Aldridge. Their offense wasn’t enough to offset Denver’s 54-36 edge in rebounding, including a 21-11 advantage on

Sunriver Continued from D1 The National Championship is the most important tournament in the country for club professionals. The top 20 golfers from the 312-player field after 72 holes qualify for the PGA Championship to take on the best golfers in the world in one of pro golf’s four major championships. Cable outlet The Golf Channel has televised the National Championship since 1997. “It’s big,” said Scott Ellender, Sunriver Resort’s direc-

the offensive glass. “We weren’t able to keep their bigs off the boards tonight and enabled those guys to get a lot of second-chance points,” Blazers center Marcus Camby said. “Rebounding is all about effort.” The Blazers trailed by double digits for most of the game, but cut it to six three times in the final 7:20. Wesley Matthews hit a three-pointer from the corner to trim Denver’s lead to 91-85, the closest the Blazers had been since early in the second quarter. The teams traded baskets before Lawson’s threepointer with 4:09 left made it 101-91. “When we put him back in in the fourth quarter he made a lot of big shots, he made a big three,” Karl said. The Nuggets never trailed and led by 19 in the third quarter before the Blazers got within nine on Crawford’s three-pointer with 3:45 left in the period. Denver settled down to lead by 14 heading into the fourth. Portland trailed by five early in the second when Denver went on a 13-2 run to take a 44-28 lead midway through the period. Crawford got hot and scored 13 points over the next 3:33 to help the Blazers cut the deficit to 53-45 late in the second. Denver closed the half strong, scoring the last nine points to take a 17-point lead into intermission. “We just got outworked. Right from the start, they outworked us, pounded us on the boards, pounded us in the paint,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “They wanted it more. Mentally, we’ve got to get stronger on the road, playing games like this.” Also on Wednesday: Lakers. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .104 Timberwolves. . . . . . . . . . . . .85 LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant had 31 points, seven rebounds and eight assists while playing with a clear mask over his broken nose, and Los Angeles beat Minnesota.

The 2013 tournament will mark the first time that Crosswater will host a nationally televised event since The Tradition, a major on pro golf’s over-50 Champions Tour that was held at Crosswater from 2007 to 2010, moved to Alabama. The club pros in the PGA National Championship won’t approach the notoriety of those who played in The Tradition, whose field included golf legends such as Tom

THE BULLETIN • THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2012

Chamberlain Continued from D1 But sometimes interesting questions about that game and its implications arise: What happened in Chamberlain’s next game? Why hasn’t any NBA star come close since? How many others at any level have scored 100? Here are some answers:

The next game For Chamberlain, the day of the Warriors’ next game began with a newspaper columnist calling him a monster. March 4, 1962, two days after his astonishing performance, should have been the biggest day in Chamberlain’s big life. Instead, the aftermath of his 100-point performance was marred by the same kind of small-minded scorn the 7-foot-1 Philadelphian had long endured from a world that continued to view him as a physical freak. The Warriors on March 4 met the same team they’d thumped on March 2 — the Knicks. But it wasn’t on a Friday night in Hershey. This game took place on a Sunday afternoon when basketball had the sports calendar to itself. It was played in the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden in New York, in the nation’s largest city, the world’s media capital. On the surface, it all looked like a perfect storm of good timing. Surely New York’s fans, its TV cameras, and sports writers would swarm to the event. Yet hardly anyone cared. Only 9,346 fans, about half of what the 18,496-seat facility could hold, showed up to see the man who had made history on Friday. The city’s nine major newspapers, far from ballyhooing Chamberlain’s appearance, greeted it with more cynicism than awe. Like so many at the time, they completely missed Chamberlain’s remarkable athleticism and saw only his size. “Basketball is not prospering because most normalsized American youngsters or adults cannot identify themselves with the freakish stars,� wrote New York Daily News sports editor Jimmy Powers that morning. “You just can’t sell a sevenfoot basket-stuffing monster to even the most gullible adolescent.� There were no elaborate pregame ceremonies marking the feat, no filmed tributes, no testimonials. Without much time to digest its significance, fans, like the writers, appeared to view the 100-point game as a comical fluke. So when Knicks center Darrell Imhoff, who had fouled out trying to cover Wilt two nights earlier, left this game late, he got a standing ovation for having helped limit the Philadelphia center to a mere 58 points. The Warriors won again, 129-128. Chamberlain’s 58 points marked the fifth straight game he had scored 50 or more. Chamberlain, who oddly lived in New York while playing in his hometown, was asked to take a bow that night on TV’s popular Ed Sullivan Show. When the perpetually stiff host, a former sports writer, introduced the player, the sight of the nattily attired giant towering over Sullivan stirred the audience to giggles. The giggles turned into a roar when Johnny Puleo, a tiny harmonica artist who was performing that night, dashed onto the stage and glared up at Chamberlain. Perplexed, the basketball star assumed a boxer’s pose until Puleo lunged at him and bit his thigh. As the audience roared at the vaudeville-like antic, Chamberlain tried to make a joke. “If he grows up,� he said to Sullivan, sounding slightly embarrassed by the whole demeaning bit, “I might lose a job.� Only three games remained in the regular season, and Chamberlain finished with 30, 44, and 34 points. Remarkably, those totals created statistical neatness for his unparalleled regular season — final per-game averages of 50.4 points and 25.7 rebounds.

The Bristol stomper Two years before Chamberlain’s 100-pointer, a 6-

foot-2 basketball player for tiny Bristol High scored 114 points in a game. Though he and his exploits have been largely forgotten, Pete Cimino remains one of the most remarkable athletes the Philadelphia area has ever produced. How many others, after all, can say they scored 114 points in a high school basketball game, threw a perfect game that spring for the school’s baseball team, struck out 20 batters in a minor-league game two years later, and pitched three seasons in the majors? On Jan. 22, 1960, in Bristol High’s Lower Bucks County League matchup with Palisades High, Cimino erupted. He hit on 44 of 79 shots from the field and 26 of 29 free throws as Bristol romped, 134-86. Afterward, he was almost apologetic. “All I wanted to do was break the league mark of 62,� he said. “But the guys on the team kept getting rebounds, and I was able to score a lot on the fast break.� The new high school scoring record he set lasted four days. On Jan. 26, 1960, Danny Heater of Burnsville, W.Va., scored 135 in a game his team won by 130 points, 17343, a total that still stands as the most ever in a sanctioned high school game. That spring, Cimino threw his perfect game for Bristol. In June, the hard-throwing right-hander signed with the Washington Senators for a $12,000 bonus. On April 30, 1962, pitching for the Class B Wilson Tobs of the Carolina League, Cimino struck out 20. In 190 innings that season, he fanned 190 batters. He pitched one season for the Minnesota Twins (1966) and parts of the next two with the California Angels. He is 69 now and lives in Kingsport, Tenn.

The century mark From various lists, it seems 19 or 20 boys and five girls have scored 100 or more points in officially sanctioned varsity games. In college, Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis did it twice and Frank Selvy of Furman once. While three of the girls — Cheryl Miller, Lisa Leslie and Linda Page — moved on to great success at the next levels, you’ve probably heard of few of the boys. In addition to Cimino, the list of long-forgotten youngsters who hit triple digits in high school games — the first in Indiana in 1913, the most recent 2006 in Manhattan — includes such obscure names as Ed Vondra, Dick Bogenrife, Cedrick Hensley, and Dickie Pitts. But of all those scholastic performances, perhaps none topped Leslie’s. Playing for Morningside (Calif.) High on Feb. 7, 1990, she scored 101 points in the first half — 49 in the first quarter, 52 in the second. Trailing, 102-24, at intermission, South Torrance High School decided to forfeit.

Never again No NBA player, not even the prolific Chamberlain, challenged the 100-point mark again. The closest that Wilt, who had a 78-point outing in 1961, ever got to his own record afterward was the 73 he scored on Nov. 16, 1962. He soon grew weary of scoring records and turned elsewhere for on-court satisfaction. In the two seasons he played on championship teams — the 1966-67 Sixers and 1971-72 Lakers — he averaged just 24.1 and 14.8 points a game, respectively. So why has no one else approached 100? Well, the pace of NBA basketball, with its penchant for isolation offense, has slowed considerably since 1962. And defenses have gotten much tighter. The 316 points the Warriors and Knicks combined for on March 2, 1962, would be inconceivable today. This season, to this point, just three of the NBA’s 30 teams even average 100 points a game — Miami, Denver and Oklahoma City. It was 44 years after Chamberlain in Hershey before someone even got to 80 points. Kobe Bryant scored 81 on Jan. 22, 2006, in the Lakers’ 122-104 win over Toronto. No NBA player has ever finished in the 90s.

FLY-TYING CORNER

It has a buggy profile, suggestive of big caddis, stoneflies, ants and hoppers, dependent on the time of year. Scott Cook, owner of Fly & Field Outfitters in Bend, says he likes this pattern because it is imitative of any number of trout foods, and the way it is tied lends to the versatility of Swisher’s Foam PMX. “I like to have the rubber legs because I can cut them off or leave them on, dependent on the hatch,� Cook says. “If the fish are feeding on stoneflies, I leave the legs on. If there are ants on the water, I cut the legs off.� Tie this pattern with black thread on a No. 10 hook. Trim black foam to shape and secure with thread to the hook. Tie in an underwing of black Krystal Flash. For the wing, tie in black deer hair. Use two-tone rubber for the legs. Tie in a wingpost of white calf tail or a synthetic substitute. Craft the thorax with peacock herl and finish with a black hackle tied parachute style.

Goose Continued from D1 Lew Lemon and Kyle Ramos, hunters from the Sacramento, Calif., area, were along for their last fling of the season. Like us, they’d had the 2:40 a.m. wakeup call at the lodge at the Running Y Ranch and now they stepped into Darren’s boat. We eased through the shallow water among the tules and seeded the marsh with more decoys for a plastic flock of 200 counterfeit birds. When we returned to the blind, my shotgun was underwater. In its case, it had been on top of a chair, but when the chair blew over, the gun went in the drink. I brushed off the new Weatherby autoloader, thumbed two rounds into the tube and closed the chamber on a third. Silhouetted against the dark sky, the tules towered overhead. We hunched into our island in the marsh, just 40 yards out from the decoys. In the Klamath Basin they call it the spring goose season, but technically it’s a late-winter hunt, focused on snow geese, Ross and greater white-fronts. There are hundreds of thousands more white-fronted geese than called for in the management objective. Snow geese are just as numerous. In late winter and early spring when the farmers’ fields are starting to show green, the birds hit the winter wheat, alfalfa and orchard grass. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists use hunters to shift crop damage pressure from private lands to the refuges in the Klamath Basin. Darren stowed his boat and walked back through the knee-high water. Georgie, the Chesapeake, took her place next to Darren and Ethan.

“Guys, guys, guys, load your guns,� Darren hissed. Five speckled-belly geese flew in out of the south and made a high circle as they checked out our spread. Known as the greater whitefront, they are also called specks for their black-speckled bellies. They have an understated beauty with a brown head and a white forehead. Their wings are dun-colored, their tails banded, dark green, black and orange. Not as big as the Canada geese Darren calls “heavies,� greater white-fronted geese tip the scales at about 6 pounds, with a wingspan of 53 to 62 inches. In flight, they move like Canadas with rapid beats of their long, pointed wings. Their call is a distinctive bark that sounds like a laughing “kla-ha� or “kla-hah-luk.� “Don’t look at them,� Darren whispered. Their second pass was lower. They cupped their wings and banked into the wind like they were climbing down a shifting staircase, out front, over the open water. “Take ’em. Take ’em!� The first one sagged and the last one crumpled and the rest put on the brakes and wheeled. Georgie charged out into the dark water and brought back our first birds of the day, two speckled-belly geese. Darren smoothed out the feathers of the first bird and started talking about garlic, butter, orange sauce and red and yellow peppers. We call the specks the “flying filet mignon.� Other groups of birds passed by overhead. We heard the crump of guns from the next property. Two snows showed low in the sky out of the southeast and on their second pass, we dropped one in the water and one in the tules behind us.

Georgie shouldered through the reeds and returned with snow on her back and a snow goose in her mouth. We watched skeins of honkers against the sky and hooted to swans that circled over our decoys. We added to the bag of specks and snows, but the bird I will remember best was the lone speck that cupped his wings over our decoys in the middle of the morning. We fired four guns, three

rounds apiece, and missed him clean. Pathetic. Beautiful. He caught a gust of wind. With our guns empty, we watched him wheel and fly out of range, encouraged back to the refuge where he belonged. — Gary Lewis is the host of “Adventure Journal� and author of “John Nosler — Going Ballistic,� “Black Bear Hunting,� “Hunting Oregon� and other titles.

TRAIL UPDATE Kicking into winter mode Winter storms have created “awesome” snow conditions for the most part, said Chris Sabo, U.S. Forest Service trails specialist. And most of that snow is the good stuff, not the wet-pack snow that was falling earlier in the season. “We’ve really kicked into winter,” Sabo said, and most sno-parks have “at least marginal conditions.” With good snow in abundance and a mild weekend forecast, the Forest Service is expecting heavy use at the sno-parks over the weekend. Trail users should expect to find a downed tree across trails here and there, Sabo warned. Forest Service and volunteer crews cleared winter trails of about 300 trees brought down by high winds last week, he said. Sled dog races are scheduled for the weekend across the forest. The Friday race is set for Upper Three Creek Snopark and will be using snowmobile loop trails to Tumalo Mountain. Racers will be at Wanoga Snowmobile Sno-park on Saturday and Sunday, and on snowmobile trails around Mt. Bachelor and south and west of Wanoga to Elk Lake Resort. Parking at Wanoga is expected to be at capacity; spectators are encouraged to carpool or use overflow parking at Wanoga Snoplay Area or Edison Sno-park. Snowmobilers can watch the race from snowmobile trails at Edison Sno-park, Sabo said.

KEY TO ADVENTURE • Flagline Trail descends from Dutchman Flat Sno-park, around Tumalo Mountain, to Swampy Lakes By Anne Aurand The Bulletin

T

here’s an extra sense of adventure involved in a one-way cross-country ski trip that starts near Mount Bachelor and ends at a lower-elevation sno-park. It also requires an extra bit of planning. Namely, you need a car shuttle and a partner. Planning note No. 1: Choose your partner wisely. You will be alone with this person for a long time in the woods where any number of things could go wrong. My partner of choice is not only a close friend and a competent backcountry skier, she’s also a physician assistant in an urgent care clinic, which, in my book, is way better than any first-aid kit. Casey Osborne-Rodhouse and I drove separate cars Todd Lake

about 15 miles up Century Drive to Swampy Lakes Snopark, where we left her car, transferred all her gear into mine and continued up the road. Planning note No. 2: Remember you will need the key to get into the parked shuttle car when you ski back to it. More on this later. About six miles later, we were at Dutchman Flat Snopark, where we started our ski on the Dutchman Loop trail, at the base of Tumalo Mountain, abutting wide-open flats that reveal spectacular scenery. On our recent blue-sky day, Mount Bachelor towered behind us and the jagged summit of Broken Top was a dramatic distraction ahead. Our destination was the Flagline Trail. See Outing / E6

TV & M New drama will keep you ‘Awake’ “Awake� 10 tonight, NBC By Ellen Gray Philadelphia Daily News

When broadcast networks’ executives sleep, they probably dream of series like NBC’s “Awake,� a cop show with a premise unusual enough to generate buzz but not so out there that people who like cop shows wouldn’t recognize it while channel-surfing. Of course, they might also dream of a better time slot than 10 p.m. Thursdays, which has evolved since the hot real estate days of “ER.� But even if the neighborhood’s not what it once was, “Awake� is the kind of property worth going a little out of your way for: a high-concept drama that packs an emotional punch while, yes, solving crimes. The very blue-eyed Jason Isaacs (“Brotherhood,� “Harry Potter�) stars as Los Angeles police detective Michael Britten, the survivor of a car crash that’s killed either his wife, Hannah (Laura Allen of “Terriers�) or their son Rex (Dylan Minnette of “Saving Grace�). Or possibly both. In Britten’s world, bisected by a sleep-wake cycle that’s either going to make him TV’s hardest-working cop or drive him over the edge, he’s living or dreaming two separate existences: One in which Hannah survived, one in which Rex did. In both cases, he’s a working detective. In one life, Steve Harris (“The Practice�) plays his veteran partner. In the other, Wilmer Valderrama, barely recognizable from his days on “That ‘70s Show,� is the rookie assigned

Regal Pilot Butte 6 to ride with him. Neither quite understands Britten’s newfound ability to use tiny details from cases in one existence to help solve cases in the other, though Britten’s dueling therapists — played by Cherry Jones and BD Wong — may have their theories. There’s a hint at the end of the second episode — and then dropped in the subsequent two hours — of the much dreaded/ much longed-for overarching conspiracy, but, honestly, I’d be happy enough with this cast and this concept to simply wander along for a bit, ignoring the trail of bread crumbs and focusing on the lengths one man might go to hold onto those he loves. “Awake� was created by Kyle Killen, whose Fox drama “Lone Star� — also about a man living a double life — was both critically acclaimed and quickly canceled. The con man at the heart of “Lone Star� “was somebody that you couldn’t decide if you liked or hated, and I think that Britten’s dilemma is something that we’re not only sympathetic for, but somehow we want him to win,� Killen said when I asked him recently what he’d learned from that show. The same goes for “Awake�: It may look sometimes as if shows have to choose between being smart or being popular, but I can’t help but root for those at least trying to be both. Bottom line: High-concept drama seeks to have its mysteries and solve them, too. Pass, watch in real time or DVR?: Real time. “The Mentalist� will wait.

A  & A  

Free kidney screening was wake-up call to good health Dear Abby: For years, I suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes. I never had a clue that they are the two leading causes of kidney failure. After reading in your column about National Kidney Month, I decided to take your suggestion and go to the National Kidney Foundation website at kidney.org. When I attended its free screening through the Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP), I found out that high blood pressure can damage the kidney’s filtering units, that diabetes is the No. 1 risk factor for kidney disease, and how important it is to keep them both under control. That screening was a wakeup call for me. I now take insulin for my diabetes and medication for my blood pressure. I have cut out salt and starch, added lots of vegetables to my diet, and 30 minutes on the stationary bike to my daily routine. My efforts have paid off. Last year when I was screened again at the KEEP, I learned that my kidney function has increased. Tens of millions of Americans are at risk for kidney disease. Won’t you please remind your readers again how important it is to be screened? For me it was a lifesaver. — JerryDean Queen, New Orleans Dear JerryDean: I’m pleased that my column alerted you to your risk for kidney disease, and that you caught it in time. Readers, March 8 is World Kidney Day. The National Kidney Foundation is again urging Americans to learn the risk factors for kidney disease and be screened so you can prevent damage to these vital organs. For advice on how to stay healthy and a schedule of free screenings — not only during March but also throughout the year — visit the National Kidney Founda-

DEAR ABBY tion online at kidney.org. Dear Abby: Someone gave a very inappropriate eulogy for someone my family cares about dearly. Is it worth it to say something to him? “Alton� lost his mother, a really good person who was loved by many, and he attacked her during his eulogy. Alton shared quite a few details about his mother’s life that no one needed to know. But the bottom line is, she was a good person who made some mistakes toward the end of her life. Alton is arrogant and mean and has a long history of verbally attacking family members. People are still talking about the eulogy. There were individuals at the service who called him names, and a few walked out in tears. Word spread to people in other states within minutes after the service ended. Is it worth pointing out to an arrogant jerk that his eulogy was appalling and has caused a lot of anger? Should one of us step forward and say something to him, or just chalk it up to “once a jerk, always a jerk�? — Couldn’t Believe My Ears in Arizona Dear Couldn’t Believe Your Ears: I vote no, because I seriously doubt that anything you could say would shame an arrogant, mean jerk into admitting he made a mistake by speaking disrespectfully of his mother at her funeral. A better way to handle it would be for those who were offended to avoid him. A deafening silence may convey the message more loudly than words. — Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Thursday, March 1, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you open up because of a willingness to go within. Your ability to communicate also is heightened. Be careful when handling what you might consider to be difficult feelings, but do not run away from them. Try to express hurt before it evolves into anger. If you are single, developing a stable relationship this year could be challenging. If you are attached, you and your significant other often find yourselves at odds. Understand your feelings rather than interpret your sweetie’s. Don’t worry as much. VIRGO can express his or her anger through pickiness. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You might know a little too much. Be discreet, and keep your observations to yourself. Communication excels. You know what to say and when to say it. You understand others’ motives better than they do. Few like to be read that well. Tonight: Hang out with your buddies. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Deal with finances directly. An emotional risk or monetary gamble could easily backfire and be the source of an argument. The smart move is to do nothing. Find an outlet for your feelings and your selfexpression. Tonight: Your treat! GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH There is an underlying sense of dissatisfaction that keeps bubbling up from out of nowhere. You know what is going on, and you know where you are heading, with the exception of a property-related issue or domestic matter. Tonight: Discuss this issue with the other party involved. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HH You might be taken aback by the harshness of your words, even in a simple conversation. You might wonder what is going on within. Stop and root out some rather strong feelings, even if you are uncomfortable. Otherwise, you might not have the control you desire. Tonight: Soul-searching. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Zero in on your priorities in meetings and discussions. You could overspend without intending to cause yourself a problem. You can justify your spending, but still be careful. Someone you know very well supports you in any way, shape or

form, so it seems. Tonight: Let your hair down. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Without intending to, you could be sarcastic and cop an attitude out of the blue. Your smile draws many people, and you do not want to push them away. Think about a boss or parent. Look at a problem from this person’s point of view. Tonight: Burning the midnight oil. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Your ability to detach from a situation could earmark your ability to get to the root of a problem. Use intellect rather than emotion, and you will succeed. Be careful with pent-up anger. It could pop out at any given moment. Tonight: Put on music and relax. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You are driven to succeed, but you need to work or brainstorm with a key associate or partner. Together, you are more likely to pull off the impossible. You also manage to get the support of others, even if there is an angry exchange at the beginning. Tonight: An intense conversation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Others continue to run the show. Someone could be irate or angry with you. You might try to straighten out the issue or choose to let it sit for a while. Sooner or later, you will be told what is going on. Make this day special, and make it yours. Tonight: So many choices. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You might not be very stable right now. Part of the problem is that new information makes you aware of misinformation or how someone created his or her own version of the story. Detach rather than get angry. Tonight: Go for an escape. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You can do nothing with a partner or associate who decides to go on the warpath. You gregarious nature possibly triggered some of the problem, but there is another issue on another level. Let your imagination and intellect merge when dealing with issues. Tonight: Be a wild thing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You are focused on a personal matter and become even more distracted because of your interactions with others. In fact, a key associate or partner could be spouting too much anger for you to handle. You do not know what to do. Tonight: Be unavailable. Š 2011 by King Features Syndicate

Continued from E1 On a weekend, Dutchman Flat Sno-park can be a madhouse, packed with snowmobilers and cross-country skiers and snowshoers. Parking can be impossible. A skier could drive a little farther up the road, park at the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center, and ski to the Flagline Trail from there instead. In fact, I had originally planned this outing as a 15mile ski from the nordic center to Virginia Meissner Sno-park. But Casey had a very important hair appointment scheduled that day so we couldn’t leave town until 1 p.m. Considering that we were on the tail of a big storm which could have blown debris over the trails and adding the fact that it gets dark around 6:30 p.m., I figured we should shorten the route to be safe. I had envisioned a long, slow downhill glissade. Dutchman Flat Sno-park starts at 6,350 feet elevation and Swampy Lakes Sno-park, where we ended, sits at 5,800 feet. How I was wrong. For the first mile or three, as we skirted the flanks of Tumalo Mountain, it was a steady uphill climb. On that day, it was warm and the snow was soft, grabby and sticky. We stopped to unlayer a bit while we slogged step by step uphill, sweating and steaming up our sunglasses. Not that we complained. We were ecstatic about the tem-

Trails Continued from E1 Some winter trail cautions: Be aware that snow can bury signs, both freestanding and those fixed on trees. Sabo would like to remind snowmobilers that alcohol and anything motorized is a dangerous — sometimes deadly — combination. Also, lakes and snowmobiles don’t mix well, even when the lakes appear to be frozen. Backcountry trail users should expect avalanche hazards from the recent storm conditions. “Careful route finding and snowpack stabil-

If you go Getting there: Take two cars. From Bend, drive approximately 15 miles west on Cascade Lakes Highway toward Mount Bachelor. Turn right at the sign for Swampy Lakes Sno-park.

perature and the visibility. As the northward Flagline Access Trail intersected with the Flagline Trail and turned east, we cooled off in the shadow of Tumalo Mountain (and stopped to put our layers back on). At times, we were dwarfed by thick stands of enormous trees. The well-marked trail meanders over rolling terrain, through perfectly spaced trees and in and out of small openings in the forest. There are some junctions to keep track of, which is easy if you grab some maps at the trailheads and keep the blue diamond

No matter your form of transportation, “be prudent … and when in doubt, avoid avalanche terrain.” The Crescent Ranger District has received several inches to a few feet of snow and sno-parks in the area are “pretty much usable,” said Sabo. “The groomer is now out and about … clearing trees and setting some pretty good track.” Ski and snowmobile trails out of Ten Mile Sno-park are in pretty decent shape.

marker signs in sight. This journey spans two different maps: the Dutchman Flat area and Vista Butte Sno-park nordic ski trail maps. (Maps can also be found here: www .glassmountains.com/ski_local.html.) It was slow going, like a backcountry tour, not a kickand-glide ride on a groomed trail. Just one spot felt at all tricky, where we had to pick through some trees while cruising downhill on a sideangled slope. The ski is long enough to pass through different forest zones and to encounter changing snow conditions. Our venture lasted less than three hours, during which time we watched storm clouds roll in and eclipse the sun. We stopped at the Swampy shelter mostly for ceremonial value. The first people we encountered since the trailhead, a gaggle of snowshoers, were gathered around a fire inside. From our backpacks stuffed with food, water, extra clothes and assorted miscellany, I pulled out some Bushmills whiskey and we reflected on a fun ski. We agreed that the distance turned out to be perfect. Just as we started to feel our legs and the hot spots on our feet, the shelter gave us an excuse to stop for a rest. Then, the final two miles on the Swampy Loop Trail were mostly downhill. Snow conditions were smoother and faster. On that final downhill

The slash removal work at Tumalo Falls is expected to be completed shortly, freeing up the area for recreation, Sabo said. The road has been plowed for the heavy truck traffic, which may continue through the week. Skiers and snowshoers can expect fair conditions on the Tumalo Creek Trail from Skyliner Sno-park to the falls. — Lydia Hoffman, The Bulletin

stretch, as I was feeling all warm and fuzzy, Casey froze midtrail and gave me a horrified look. She was certain she had left her keys in my car. At Dutchman. Some seven-plus miles back. We were not willing to turn around. Maybe her shuttle car had a hide-a-key. Maybe not. We laughed. This was not a life-threatening blunder. We

could probably hitch a ride from someone in the parking lot. Or, we could tuck our tails between our legs and call my husband to pick us up and shuttle us back up to my car at Dutchman. I hesitate to compromise Casey’s vehicle security system and her pride by disclosing whether she found a key stashed on her car or in the backpack she had carried all

along. Perhaps some of us are just prone to worry. Perhaps, lacking any other snags along our journey, we needed something to go wrong. Perhaps we needed an added element of adventure. I will say, being the superprepared person that Casey is, we were doubly covered the whole time. — Reporter: 541-383-0304, aaurand@bendbulletin.com

FIRST SURGERY?

• Expert Max King’s tips on how to create a smart training plan

MONEY

YES.

By Anne Aurand The Bulletin

Local running star and coach Max King knows a thing or two about running, and is willing to help Bend’s elite and not-so-elite runners maximize (no pun intended) their training. “Many runners just assume that training means you go FITNESS run five miles or so everyday as hard as you can but there is much more to training than that,” he said in an email. “I want people to be able to build their own training plans and be able to train smarter instead of just harder.” Generally, he said, running the same way every day makes you really good at that pace. So something has to change if you want to get better. Our bodies adapt well to new stimuli. So, introducing some higher-intensity intervals and speed work into one’s training can result in several types of changes: faster race times, improved fitness, weight loss. See Run / F2

When I travel abroad, which I do frequently for work, I try to run every day for an hour. It gives me energy and a great look at my new surroundings. After starting a run in Manila recently, I stopped MEDICINE three minutes into it. My breathing was shallow and labored. I also had nagging pain in my calves. The discomfort had been with me since I landed in the Philippines four days earlier. So that morning I ran, walked, ran and walked for 30 minutes. I was confused, but I dismissed it as lingering jet lag and a by-product of the intense heat. I decided to stop running for the rest of my trip, and wrote later in my running blog about how I was pushing myself perhaps too much. Indeed, I was. Back in Washington a few days later, I again was out of breath. But this time, I had just walked up two flights of stairs at home. Something was wrong. I opened my laptop computer, connected to Google, typed in “shortness of breath + calf pain + long flight,” and found a possible cause that turned me cold: deep vein thrombosis, or blood clotting, which could travel up to my lung and cause a pulmonary embolism, a sudden blockage in a lung artery. And that, I read, could kill me. See Clots / F4

PRACTICE MAKES

PERFECT • High volume could mean a better outcome for your surgery By Markian Hawryluk The Bulletin

or some reason, patients tend to wait until they’re on the operating table before asking their physicians a critical question: Have you done many of these? “It’s almost like, ‘Are they joking or are they not?’” said Dr. Bruce McLellan, an interventional cardiologist with Heart Center Cardiology in Bend. Fortunately, he can cite his more than 7,000 cardiac catheterizations or close to 3,000 angioplasties — unless he’s in a playful mood. “With the right patient I would say, ‘Well, I saw it on Lifetime Medical Television last night, so you’re the first!’” he said. Research suggests it’s a question patients should ask much earlier in the process. Scores of studies have shown that doctors who perform more of a procedure tend to have better outcomes. It’s such a strong correlation that health care quality groups have begun to urge patients to seek out surgeons or hospitals with higher volumes. Surgical specialties have set minimum

numbers of surgeries doctors need to perform each year to be considered proficient and hospitals have incorporated those thresholds into their credentialing process. The emphasis on volume, however, can have a significant impact on smaller communities like Central Oregon, which may not have enough patients to reach the numbers linked with better outcomes. Local physicians and hospitals must carefully manage their surgical volumes to ensure the region doesn’t lose its capacity to provide high quality surgical care to larger academic medical institutions in Portland or Seattle.

The volume advantage Researchers have been studying the link between volume and outcomes for more than 30 years and the data supports the notion that with surgery, practice makes perfect. The more procedures surgeons complete, the more refined their skills and the more complications they’ve learned to handle. That may improve survival rates for some of the trickiest surgeries. One study, for example, found that surgeons who completed more than 162 coronary artery bypass grafts a year had a mortality rate of 4 percent, while those who completed 100 or fewer bypasses had a mortality rate of 5.4 percent.

A smattering of research suggests that low-glycemic diets reduce the risk of chronic disease and may be protective against heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Low-glycemic foods are generally described as slowlydigested carbohydrates, such as whole NUTRITION grains, legumes and other highfiber foods. Inside • Glycemic index The “glycemic index” of sample ranks foods foods, F6 on a scale from 1 to 100 to help describe how quickly carbohydrates break down in the digestive system to form glucose, a source of energy for our bodies and brains. Foods that digest more quickly have a higher index. Foods ranked 100 are the equivalent of pure glucose. Fat and fiber tend to lower the glycemic index of a food, according to the American Diabetes Association. Low-glycemic diets have been used to help people with diabetes keep their blood sugar under control. Eating a lowglycemic diet does not cause blood glucose levels to spike and increases a hormone that helps regulate the metabolism of fat and sugar. But there might be a broader benefit to those without diabetes. A new study by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center published in the February print issue of The Journal of Nutrition said eating low-glycemic foods significantly reduces markers of inflammation associated with chronic disease in overweight and obese but otherwise healthy adults.

Many teens think driving while high isn’t dangerous By Andrea K. Walker The Baltimore Sun

Teenagers are driving after smoking weed and many don’t think there is any danger in doing so, according to a new survey. The survey by Liberty Mutual Insurance and Students Against Destructive Decisions found that 19 percent of teen drivers said they have driven under the influence of marijuana. More teens are driving after smoking weed than after drinking. Just 13 percent of teens surveyed said they had driven after drinking Liberty Mutual and SADD said the study, which they have regularly conducted since 2000, highlights a dangerous misconception by teens many teens who don’t consider marijuana a an obstacle to driving. More than one-third of teens who have driven after using marijuana say the drug does not affect their driving.

F  RESEARCH Activity improves survival rate of prostate patients Men with low-grade prostate cancer may have better chances of survival if they are physically active, research shows. Building on previous research which suggested that brisk walking, or jogging, at least three hours a week was linked to a lowered risk of prostate cancer progression and death, scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, recently analyzed the expression, or activity, of genes in 70 men with low-grade prostate cancer. The researchers then correlated the data with self-reported exercise habits of the men. The study identified 109 genes that were more active, and 75 that were less active among the men who exercised vigorously for at least three hours a week compared to those who exercised less. The genes that were more active included many that are thought to help thwart cancer progression, such as well-known “tumor suppressor” genes, as well as genes involved in DNA repair. “Vigorous physical activity may provide clinical benefits for men diagnosed with earlier stage prostate cancer,” said June Chan, the study’s author, a researcher and professor at UCSF. More than 217,000 American men are diagnosed with the prostate cancer and some 32,000 men die from it annually, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Run Continued from F1 Here’s an overview of what King told some 70 people who

HEART RATE ZONE BASICS: To build a better training routine, a runner must start by understanding at what heart rate he or she should be working out. Get out the calculator. Start by calculating your maximum heart rate, generally estimated as 220 - age. For more athletic people, the max heart rate could be calculated like this: For women, 214 - (age ÷ 2) and for men, 211 - (age ÷ 2). (So for a 40-year-old woman, 214 minus 20 equates to a 194 max heart rate.) Then, calculate percentages of that maximum heart rate number to target your running effort within these various training zones:

• Recovery zone: Under 65 percent of maximum heart rate. This is where your body rests and recovers. • Easy zone: 65 to 75 percent of maximum heart rate. Training in the easy and recovery zones builds endurance, aerobic capacity, the ability to process oxygen and resist muscle fatigue. • Tempo zone: 75 to 88 percent of maximum heart rate. Training at this higher effort increases aerobic capacity at this speed. You’re bumping up against your lactate threshold (see “Lactate threshold”) so you can run faster while remaining in the aerobic state as

opposed to an anaerobic state. • Threshold zone: 88 to 95 percent of maximum heart rate. Training in this zone increases your lactate threshold and allows you to run faster and more efficiently without needing more oxygen. It makes your heart muscle grow bigger, increasing the volume of the ventricles. • VO2 max, or anaerobic zone: 95 to 100 percent of maximum heart rate. VO2 max is a body’s maximum capacity to transport and use oxygen during exercise. Training in this intense zone — fast running for a short duration — improves your speed, anaerobic capacity, lactate process, running effi-

ciency and form. Typically, easier, slower running tends to encourage a heel-striking running form, whereas sprinting tends to encourage midsole striking and core and arm involvement. If you train more that way, your muscle memory will improve your form on slower runs, too. King said your heart rate is a good indicator of how hard you’re working. He recommends using a heart monitor to learn how various zones should feel. Some runners can target their workouts by feel. For example, if you’re fatigued, you’re probably at the high end of the threshold zone and getting into the VO2 max zone.

TRAINING STRUCTURE: This advice generally applies to training for anything from a 5K to a marathon. Before tackling a new training philosophy though, it’s important to have a healthy amount of base training and fitness to avoid potential injuries. On a weekly basis, try to run: • 20 percent of your miles in the long run, which is longer and a little faster than the easy/ recovery run.

• 10 percent of your miles in the tempo/threshold zone. • 10 percent of your miles at VO2 or above. (Speed work should typically be done in intervals, see “Workouts”). • 60 percent of your miles in the in easy/recovery zone. Design it however it works for your life and your schedule, except be sure to insert rest days regularly. In other words, don’t stack four hard work-

outs, four days in a row. Longer term training structure: Over the course of a year, a process called periodized training builds up to races. Periodized training may alter the weekly design described above. Generally, it evolves like this: Establish a fitness base, increase endurance, work on strength, improve speed, taper the training, rest, then race.

These phases may overlap and their duration depends on the training program. Some people might have two periodized build-ups in a year, for a spring and a fall marathon, for example. In periodization, the average increase in mileage should be about 10 to 20 percent per month. In a month, two to three weeks of increasing mileage should be followed by one week of decreased mileage.

WORKOUTS: King defines “workout” as any run that’s harder and faster than one’s normal, easy running pace. Here are some examples of ways to mix it up: •Hills — Examples include running uphill for five minutes at VO2 (hard) three times, intersected by short downhill jogs. Or try 10 400-meter sprints uphill with rest periods in between. • Fartlek — A fun, freeform workout that includes intervals and speed, such as running between 30 seconds and three minutes at a 5K- to 10K-race pace with easy restful jogs up to two minutes in between bursts of speed. Great to incorporate on any regular running route.

Running 101: Improve health, form

— Anne Aurand, The Bulletin

You know you should exercise — but you don’t do it. Well, here’s some advice that’s easy to take: “Don’t be so hard on yourself.” That’s the view of Maria Brilaki whose website, fitnessreloaded.com is designed to coax nonexercisers to get moving. “Just stick to what you can do. Forget about what you should do,” Brilaki says. “If you beat yourself up, you increase the chance you’ll quit.” “If you can’t do your full workout, just do five minutes. Just do two exercises. This helps keep the momentum up and keeping the momentum up is really important,” she says. To help get started, Brilaki offers these pointers: • “Don’t get discouraged.” • Start with stretches. (I tried the anti-slouch video on her website as I was typing this, and it felt great.) • You don’t need a gym or special equipment. A backpack with books inside substitutes for dumbbells. A table, sofa and broomstick are all you need to follow her videos. • Use daily activities (brushing your teeth, putting on shoes) as triggers that remind you to exercise immediately afterward, even if just for a few minutes of squats, stretches, lunges. • Create habits of exercise, no matter how brief, and “sooner or later you’ll forget to stop.”

gathered recently at FootZone, the running store in Bend where King works, to get some advice in a clinic called “Running 101.”

• Speed intervals — Similar to the concept of a fartlek, but with specific time goals, typically on a track. Specific distances and paces would depend on the race you’re training for and the condition you’re in. Speed intervals could last two minutes or less and be done faster than a 5K-race pace, for example. • Endurance intervals — Similar to speed intervals but the duration of the speed work is longer. For example, three to six minutes at a VO2 pace. • Tempo run — This is a loosely defined term that refers to any run that’s harder than an easy run but not quite to one’s threshold. It’s a pace that you can carry for more than an hour. • Threshold run — The entire run is at a pace that’s right below your lactate threshold. In other words, extended periods of time at an intense level, such as the fastest pace you could endure for 45 minutes to an hour. Or, try running three 10-minute sets at that pace, separated by one-minute rests.

HOW NOT TO GET INJURED:

Thinkstock

Lactate threshold Lactate threshold is correlated with heart rate. Lactate is a byproduct of the process of using oxygen during hard exercise. At a certain intensity, blood accumulates more lactate than the body can flush out. Lactate threshold is also correlated with the line between aerobic and anaerobic exercise. In an aerobic state, your body can transport more oxygen to your muscles than what they are using. In an anaerobic state, you’re not able to transport enough oxygen to working muscles, so you have a short window of time before you wear out. In other words, if you’re running above lactate threshold — sprinting, for example — you will expend all your energy quickly. The whole point of training in the threshold and anaerobic zones is to increase lactate threshold and improve the lactate process, which would allow you to run faster while using the same amount of oxygen and at the same heart rate.

• Stick with the 10 percent rule: No more than a 10 percent yearly increase in average mileage, and no more than a 10 percent increase per week during mileage buildup periods. • Don’t mess with too many of these at the same time: workout intensity, mileage quantity, recovery periods. You can probably vary two of these three things for about one week, such as increasing the intensity of your runs AND getting a little less recovery time. But don’t try making changes to two of those three components for multiple weeks at a

time, or you’ll be more likely to overtrain and get injured. •Core: Core work, such as yoga and other stretching and strengthening exercise, is important for runners because running doesn’t give you the strength that you need to run. It actually seems to decrease some strength in some smaller muscles. Strength work in general can improve running efficiency, endurance, posture and form, all helpful in injury prevention. — Reporter: 541-383-0304, aaurand@bendbulletin.com

VITAL STATS Consumers spend most on prescription drugs Prescription drugs account for nearly one out of every three dollars spent out-of-pocket on health care services, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Armed with a prescription and some patience, consumers can save hundreds of dollars — and maybe some time — by buying eyeglasses online. For most, the major concerns are cosmetic ones. But an important risk is often overlooked: the quality and safety of the lenses. Researchers found that nearly half of prescription glasses they bought online either contained the Thinkstock wrong lenses or didn’t meet the standards for impact testing, meaning the lens can crack or shatter, according to a small study published last year in the journal Optometry. The researchers ordered a total of 200 pairs of spectacles from the 10 most popular online retailers; they received and evaluated 154 pairs. In some cases, they received single vision lenses instead of multifocal — an unheard

Volume Continued from F1 The same held true for hospitals. Facilities that performed at least 850 bypass procedures yearly had a mortality rate of 4.5 percent, while those that did fewer than 230 had a mortality rate of 5.6 percent. Studies showed that even at highvolume hospitals, low-volume surgeons had twice the mortality rate of their high-volume colleagues. The correlation applied for procedures in cardiology, orthopedics, neurosurgery and other specialties. In 2000, the Institute of Medicine undertook a review of the evidence, finding that among 88 studies conducted between 1980 and 2000, 68 showed an inverse correlation between volume and mortality. By 2008, more than 300 published studies had shown a link. “Patients can often improve their chances of survival substantially, even at high-volume hospitals, by selecting surgeons who perform the operations frequently,” the authors of one large study concluded. The implication of those findings were clear. Fewer patients would die if more patients underwent procedures at high-volume hospitals with more experienced surgeons. In 2000, the Leapfrog Group, a coalition of companies and institutions that buy billions of dollars of health insurance for their employees, recommended that their members contract for seven different procedures only with hospitals that met minimum volume thresholds. The group estimated that some 65,000 lives would be saved if all patients requiring these complex surgeries were referred to high-volume hospitals. A separate analysis found that if the 150,000 patients undergoing bypass surgery at low-volume hospitals went to high-volume hospitals instead, nearly 600 lives would be saved. Researchers are looking at other outcomes besides mortality. Just last month, a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual conference found that patients undergoing knee reconstruction were four to five times more likely to need a second reconstruction if their surgeons had done fewer than 60 cases in their career. “Conventional wisdom is that a trained surgeon should have excellent results once they have completed their training,” said Dr. Robert Marx, an orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City and a co-author of the study. “But there is a learning curve to ACL surgery and what we have found is that in the early career volume or learning curve, surgeons’ outcomes are not as good as later outcomes.”

What’s best for patients? While there’s broad consensus that a learning curve exists for complex procedures, many have questioned whether choosing a surgeon or a hospital based on volume alone is the best move for patients. “It’s a topic that’s been looked at very closely for the past two decades and the pendulum swings back and forth depending on what data you look at,” said Dr. Michael Mastrangelo, a surgeon with Bend Surgical Associates. Volume, particularly hospital volume, may simply be a

Leapfrog Group standards The Leapfrog Group, a coalition of health care purchasers, recommended patients needing one of seven complex procedures — where outcomes have been linked to volume — be treated at hospitals and by surgeons that exceed the following minimum numbers of cases each year:

Procedure Coronary artery bypass graft Percutaneous coronary intervention Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair Aortic valve replacement Pancreatic resection Esophagectomy Bariatric surgery

Hospital minimum

Surgeon minimum

450 400 50 120 11 13 125

100 75 8 22 2 2 20

Orthopedic surgery minimum numbers The American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons has the following recommendations for minimum number of procedures surgeons should complete each year to maintain proficiency: Knee arthroscopy 30 Shoulder arthroscopy 20 ACL reconstruction 10 Total hip replacement 30 Total knee replacement 30 Hip fractures 30 Carpal tunnel release 10 Spine decompression/fusion 15 Ankle fracture fixation 15 Ankle and hind- and midfoot arthroscopy 5 Femur and tibia intramedullary fixation 25 Pediatric procedures 200 Oncology procedures 10

proxy for the better resources at larger facilities. Big academic centers may attract better physicians or afford better technology. They may be able to devote more time to quality improvement or have specially trained staff that improve patient care. It’s not clear whether patients treated at high- and low-volume facilities are comparable. Few of the studies that identified a link between volume and outcome used clinical data to adjust for differences in the types of patients treated, and even fewer have attempted to increase a hospital’s volumes to see if that would lead to an improvement in outcomes. It’s possible that healthier patients may be more apt to travel to academic medical centers, while sicker patients have to stay closer to home at low-volume community hospitals, skewing the results. A Washington state study last year found that although a greater proportion of pancreatic and esophageal resections were done at higher volume hospitals that met the Leapfrog thresholds, it had a negligible effect on patient outcomes. Meanwhile, skeptics point out that the volume research looks only at average effects. There are low-volume hospitals with better outcomes than high-volume hospitals. Many procedures already have very low mortality rates, so shifting such surgeries to high-volume hospitals or surgeons might not result in that many lives saved. Some surgeons in Central Oregon say they are concerned about the long-term ramifications of sending patients to high-volume hospitals or surgeons out of the region, when those procedures could be done locally. That takes procedures away from local surgeons, who must still treat patients who can’t travel due to financial or medical reasons. Surgeons may not be credentialed to perform a giv-

en procedure in the hospital because their volumes aren’t high enough, but yet, are asked to perform those same surgeries when on-call in the emergency room. “When you never do an elective procedure, but you’re asked to take care of the urgent or emergent patient when that same patient has a complication from it, then I think the patient really suffers,” said Dr. Andrew Jones, a surgeon with Inovia Specialty Care in Bend. Jones said he made a choice several years ago to limit his practice to vein surgery and melanomas, in part to ensure he could do enough of the procedures to be really good at them. “People realize over time that you take care of certain diseases or disease processes, and they send you those patients and they don’t send you the other ones,” he said. Jones said every community has surgeons who are proficient despite their low volumes. “Frankly, what we would need to do in any community is identify who those people are and utilize them,” Jones said. “Unfortunately the political situation has not allowed that to happen.” Recent acrimony among various physicians groups and the hospital in Central Oregon have left many physicians reluctant to refer patients outside of their clinics. And, in some cases, that’s spread a limited volume of cases among several surgeons, ensuring nobody meets the minimum thresholds. In other cases, physicians have brought expertise in certain surgeries when they arrived in Central Oregon and it was natural for other surgeons to send patients needing those procedures their way. Before Dr. Ray Tien joined The Center: Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Care & Research in Bend, more complex aneurysm patients were sent to Oregon Health & Science University

of mix-up, said Karl Citek, a professor of optometry at the Pacific University College of Optometry and lead author of the study. Lens treatments such as anti-reflection coatings were either incorrectly added or omitted. In nearly a quarter of the spectacles, at least one lens failed impact testing, which is required because prescription eyeglasses are classified as medical devices by the Food and Drug Administration. “A lens might be slightly off in the optics; if you don’t have someone verify (the prescription) you might not know it’s wrong,” said Citek who does not recommend buying eyeglasses online. Vendors generally don’t call your doctor to verify prescriptions, but even that “can’t ensure that the lenses are safe since a doctor has no way of assessing impact resistance for finished eyewear,” said Citek. Still, online purchases are growing, mainly because glasses are so darn expensive.

in Portland, while simpler cases were split among other surgeons in town. Now most of those cases are referred to Tien, keeping those patients in the community while keeping his volume above the minimum thresholds. “This community can barely support one vascular neurosurgeon and I’m always looking at those numbers,” Tien said. “I think at this point with one person here, and the rest of the surgeons just sending it all my way, I think it is reasonable.” In other cases, however, the limited number of patients needing surgeries has kept local surgeons from performing procedures they have been trained to do. Tien points to the example of skullbase tumors. While at least two neurosurgeons are skilled in the procedure, they rely on ear, nose and throat specialists for assistance. And local ENT surgeons, Tien said, haven’t felt they could be proficient doing only one or two cases a year. Tien said it makes sense to send those to a specialist at OHSU who gets patients from all over the state and does 30 cases a year. “Clearly the volumes at OHSU are going to exceed the volumes that we do here,” he said. “And they are clearly outstanding surgeons.” But patients often don’t realize that because OHSU is a teaching hospital, it’s often the residents just out of medical school that are doing the operations under the supervision of the highly skilled, highly experienced surgeons.

Watching volume The minimum thresholds mean that doctors must keep a close eye on their volumes. Interventional cardiologists like McLellan must average at least 75 cardiac interventions each year to maintain their hospital credentials. Physicians practicing in groups can often work together to ensure that each doctor is getting enough cases to stay above the thresholds. In other situations, doctors may choose the types of procedures they will focus on, and refer other cases to their colleagues. Dr. Brett Gingold, an orthopedic surgeon with Desert Orthopedics in Redmond, has chosen to focus on arthroscopic shoulder and knee surgery. “I do so many of those procedures, it’s like second nature to me now,” he said.

According to the Vision Council, a trade group for the optical industry, 1.9 million pairs were bought online in 2010, about 2.8 percent of the total 66.8 million pairs bought in the U.S. The bespectacled say it’s liberating to be able to buy a $50 pair of eyeglasses, or buy five pairs for the price of one. Some sites offer virtual fittings; simply upload a photo of yourself and superimpose the frames you like. Or, try them on the old fashioned way. The Warby Parker Home Try-On Program allows you to pick five pairs of glasses to keep for five days. Shipping is free both ways. If you decide to try your luck online, Citek recommends asking your doctor to verify the prescription and to adjust the frame once you’ve received the glasses. Doctors may charge for this. It’s also important to check the company’s warranty and return policy. Finally, “never order children’s eyewear online,” he said. The study finding that one in four pairs of children’s eyewear failed impact resistance testing is “unconscionable,” said Citek. — Julie Deardorff, Chicago Tribune

Still many patients he has treated and built a relationship with over the years want him to do other orthopedic procedures as well. “They don’t want to go to another provider,” he said. “So I say, ‘This is a procedure I’ve done before, but I’m not very good at it. How about if my partner who does this a lot helps us do this?’ That often times goes a long way with patients.” Many patients also assume that physicians at larger academic medical centers will always have higher-volumes than local surgeons. That’s not always the case. Those clinicians might have higher volume of less common or more complex cases, but may not do any more routine cases that a surgeon in a community hospital. Having those procedures that can be done safely and effectively in a community hospital, meanwhile, is like an investment in the local capacity, helping to build local experience and expertise.

Other factors Researchers are also trying to identify what factors other than volume are responsible for the better outcomes at larger facilities, to determine whether those can be replicated at lower-volume facilities. A case study in Utah suggests that may be possible. Doctors there reported on the introduction of pancreatic cancer surgery to two community hospitals in Ogden that previously referred those patients to Salt Lake City, about 40 miles away. Pancreatic cancer surgery has been identified as one of the procedures where patients stand to gain the most by going to a high-volume hospital. Mortality rates were four times higher at low-volume hospitals than at high-volume facilities. Both hospitals in Ogden used a multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together various specialists to discuss the management of pancreatic cancer patients to optimize their surgical outcomes. While the hospitals did not perform enough surgeries to provide statistically meaningful results, they did achieve mortality rates comparable to those of high-volume hospitals. Out of 104 cases over more than four years, three patients did not survive 30 days past their surgery, a mortality rate of 2.9 percent. Mortality rates for pancreatic cancer surgery in high-volume hospitals have ranged from 2.2 to 4 per-

cent in several studies. Pancreatic cancer surgeons from various practices in Central Oregon are now working together to replicate that model in Central Oregon, rather than sending patients to Portland or Seattle. Cases are discussed by a pancreatic tumor board, where various specialists can weigh in on the best way to approach the surgery. The collaboration is a way of pooling expertise “So instead of relying on an individual volume and individual experience, you can take the collective experience of all the physicians in the community,” Mastrangelo said. The pancreatic surgery initiative was launched last year, and it’s still too early to gauge what effect it will have. Even keeping those pancreatic cancer cases in Central Oregon, the region will never have enough cases based on its current population to reach highvolume levels. But Mastrangelo said the gap between moderate-volume and high-volume hospitals and surgeons isn’t as great as between low- and high-volume. “The discussion seems to center on low-volume versus high-volume and misses that moderate volume in between,” he said. “But the numbers alone aren’t the whole story.” He believes that moderatevolume facilities can offer patient outcomes that are almost as good without the added cost and hassle of traveling over the mountains. That would allow patients to stay close to home where they have better support from family and friends, and more continuity in follow-up care. “There’s no doubt that the level of specialty and knowledge at an academic medical center is superior to what we can do in the community,” Mastrangelo said. “But we can come pretty close.” — Reporter: 541-617-7814 mhawryluk@bendbulletin.com

M Know how to store and reheat food safely

CELEBRITY MEDICINE

Judi Dench shines spotlight on macular degeneration British actress Dame Judi Dench, 77, recently reported she had been diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration and was having trouble reading scripts. According to the American Macular Degeneration Foundation, the condition is an incurable eye disease and the leading cause of blindness for those 55 and older in the United States. It occurs when the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye, deteriorates, impairing the ability to read, drive a car or recognize faces. Most cases of AMD are “dry” types, with only 10 to 15 percent being “wet” type. With wet AMD, central vision worsens quickly and can be treated with laser surgery, light therapy and injections into the eye. None of these treatments is a cure.

Dry AMD occurs when the light-sensitive cells in the retina break down, gradually blurring central vision over time. One of the most common early signs of dry AMD is drusen, a yellow deposit under the retina. Once dry AMD reaches an advanced stage, vision loss is not preventable. But treatment can slow the progression, staving of vision loss for many years. Nobody knows what causes AMD, although risk factors include smoking and obesity. Research suggests diet may play a factor. Those avoiding a high-saturated fat diet, while eating fresh fruits and dark-green leafy vegetables may be at lower risk. — Markian Hawryluk, The Bulletin Sources: AMD Foundation, National Eye Institute, AMD Alliance International

Many Americans make meals out of leftovers. And while everyone knows to refrigerate perishables, not everyone is taking all the proper steps to ensure the next-day food is safe, according to the Institute of Food Technologists, a nonprofit society of food science professionals from academia, government and industry. The group definitely supports leftovers, and even says some foods actually taste better the next day, such as those with spices, because the flavors have time to meld. But be mindful that bacteria can grow in food. Here are some tips for managing the food properly: • Refrigeration: Of course food needs to be refrigerated. But people may not realize that you don’t need to cool cooked foods before putting them in modern refrigerators. They are built to cool dishes that are warm to the touch without breaking them, though

you can save energy by chilling the food promptly after cooking. You can put it in front of a fan, in an ice bath or divide it into smaller portions in shallow dishes. Just make sure you get the food in there within two hours of cooking, or one hour on hot days. Make sure your refrigerator is set at 40 degrees or lower, but use an appliance thermometer rather than relying on the refrigerator displays. • Storing: The group recommends thin-walled metal, glass or plastic containers that are no more than 2 inches deep. Bags, foil and plastic are good for oddshaped food. Keep cooked meat can for only three to four days. Uncooked meats, poultry and seafood will last only a day or two. Raw roasts, steak and chops can last three to five days. Casseroles, veggies and other side dishes will last three to five days also. Ditto for pie.

• Freezing: This totally halts bacteria growth in most foods for months. Recommended storage times are more for nutritional value and quality. Uncooked meats can be stored eight to 12 months, while frozen cooked meats will lose flavor after three months. The freezer should be at zero degrees. • Reheating: Use a thermometer to ensure proper temperature. Meats should be heated to 165 degrees in the center. Sauces, soups and gravies should be brought to a boil. Never reheat in a crock pot, slow cooker or chafing dish. Steak and whole cuts of beef or lamb can be left a bit rare when reheated as long as they were initially cooked at a high temperature to sear the surface and kill bacteria. If you use a microwave, use a lower power setting to reheat without overcooking. — Meredith Cohn, The Baltimore Sun

Removing polyps cuts colon cancer deaths by half Study: Kids By Robert Langreth Bloomberg News

Removing precancerous polyps found during a colonoscopy reduces by half a person’s odds of dying from colon cancer, according to study that suggests the tests can be used to help separate patients by risk. The research, reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, followed 2,602 older patients who had precancerous polyps removed during a colonoscopy. Over a median of 15.8 years, the people studied had less than half the number of colon cancer deaths than would have been expected in the general population that age,

Blood test can flag clotting disorder Special to The Washington Post The most common genetic disorder causing blood to clot when it shouldn’t is called Factor V Leiden thrombophilia. Here is what the National Institutes of Health’s Genetics Home Reference website says about the disorder: “Between 3 and 8 percent of people with European ancestry carry one copy of the Factor V Leiden mutation in each cell, and about 1 in 5,000 people have two copies of the mutation. The mutation is less common in other populations. . . . “People with Factor V Leiden thrombophilia have a higher than average risk of developing a type of a deep venous thrombosis (DVT). DVTs occur most often in the legs, although they can also occur in other parts of the body, including the brain, eyes, liver, and kidneys. Factor V Leiden thrombophilia also increases the risk that clots will break away from their original site and travel through the bloodstream. These clots can lodge in the lungs, where they are known as pulmonary emboli. Although Factor V Leiden thrombophilia increases the risk of blood clots, only about 10 percent of individuals with the Factor V Leiden mutation ever develop abnormal clots.” Among the symptoms that may suggest such a mutation are: having a first DVT (or blood clot that passes into your lungs) before age 50 or having recurring DVTs; for women, having a DVT during or right after pregnancy; and having a thrombosis in an uncommon spot, such as the liver or brain. According to the Mayo clinic, Factor V Leiden mutation can be diagnosed with a blood test.

according to the results. The finding suggests that an initial screening could be used to separate patients into highrisk and low-risk groups, said Michael Bretthauer, a gastroenterologist who co-wrote an editorial accompanying the study. High-risk patients, those with precancerous polyps, benefited from getting repeated colonoscopies afterwards, he said. When no precancerous polyps are found in a patient “you can just forget about them, send them home,” said Bretthauer, at Oslo University Hospital Rikshospitalet in Norway, in a telephone interview. “They are at very low risk.”

Clots Continued from F1 A half-hour later, I drove to the hospital. There, I told the admitting nurse that I believed I had DVT and cited my conditions. She checked off a box on the form for “urgent,” and 15 minutes later an ultrasound technician was looking at the veins inside my right calf. “Oh, my god,” she said in a whisper. “You found a clot?” I asked. “Don’t move,” she said. She had found two, one a large clot just below my knee. She was worried that if I moved, the clot could travel up to my lungs. An orderly wheeled me back to the emergency room, where a nurse quickly gave me anti-clotting medicines. A doctor came a few minutes later and said that based on my story, I had almost surely had a pulmonary embolism in Manila and again in Washington. And at that moment, he said, I probably had several clots in my veins. He told me that the anti-clotting drugs would not break apart the clots — medications to do that can cause serious bleeding and generally are used only in life-or-death moments in the emergency room. Instead, he said, I would start a regimen of two medicines — Coumadin orally and daily shots of heparin — to prevent my clots from getting bigger and further clots from developing. I was not yet out of danger, and so I would be kept in the hospital for a few days to make sure everything was OK, he said. “You’re lucky,” he said. Actually I felt I had been lucky twice — first in Manila and then at home. So began my education on deep vein thrombosis. After calling my family to let them know about the diagnosis, I returned to Google and learned that 350,000 to 600,0000 Americans get DVT every year, and up to 100,000 die from it. I found out that the biggest risk factors for DVT include surgery, immobilization, smoking, obesity, genetic tendencies to form clots (see accompanying box) and longhaul flights. I started poking around some more and found the story of David Bloom, the NBC correspondent who died of a pulmonary embolism in Iraq in 2003. He had prolonged periods of immobility

A colonoscopy is a test in which a doctor slides a tube called a colonoscope into the rectum, allowing the inside of the colon to be viewed with a video camera. Polyps that are found can be removed during the procedure. While the latest research doesn’t prove colonoscopies saves lives in the general population, it supports colon cancer screening guidelines, said Ann Zauber, a biostatistician at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York and the report’s lead author, in a telephone interview. “We are really reducing colon cancer deaths remarkably,”

she said. “It is a very strong effect long term.” The American Cancer Society recommends that men and women get a colonoscopy or another colon cancer screening test such as fecal occult blood test starting at age 50, according to its website. Colonoscopy should be done every 10 years, it recommends. The 2,602 patients who got precancerous adenomas removed were 62 on average when they started the study between 1980 and 1990, in an era where colonoscopy was not generally used as a screening exam in the healthy population. The patients were then followed

Avoiding deep vein thrombosis • On flights longer than five hours, experts say, it’s important to drink lots of water and avoid drinks that cause dehydration, such as coffee, tea and alcohol. • Take frequent walks up and down the aisles. If you can’t walk around, stand up at your seat and do toe lifts, heel lifts and ankle circles to keep the blood flowing. • Avoid wearing constricting clothing. Take cat naps instead of sleeping for long periods. • Bring aboard a collapsible stool; using one allows shorter people in economy class to elevate their knees and reduce pressure on the femoral vein under the knee. Wear compression socks to help your circulation. • Some people take baby aspirin before a long flight, but studies suggest aspirin isn’t very useful at preventing DVT, and my doctor did not recommend it.

W ARNING SIGNS • Swelling in the calf area. Pain in the calf, ankle or foot that is often worse when standing or walking. The pain often starts in the calf and can feel like cramping or a charley horse. • In the affected area, the skin will feel warm to the touch. • The skin color may also change color, sometimes turning pale, red or blue.

WHAT TO DO If you suspect you have DVT, get in touch with your doctor and describe your symptoms. If you also have shortness of breath, go to an emergency room. You may have a pulmonary embolism, which can be life-threatening.

in several situations, including a long flight and time in a tank during which his knees were pulled up to his chin. Bloom’s autopsy also revealed an inherited blood coagulation disorder. DVT is frequently called “economy-class syndrome” because of the number of people who get it after sitting immobilized in cramped seats on long flights. I started hearing from friends, including many who work in global health, a subject I’ve been writing about for the past two decades. A friend who once worked at the World Health Organization said he once had DVT after a long flight and now injected himself with an anti-clotting medicine 30 minutes before every long-distance trip; he said that enough people at WHO had DVT from flights that it was almost an occupational hazard. Phyllis Kanki, an infectious-diseases professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, told me she traveled business class as much as possible in part because of the ability to elevate her legs, a way to lessen the risk of DVT. “The first thing I do once the plane takes off is to elevate my feet. It makes a big difference,” she said. “The trouble with diagnosing DVT

after long trips is that so many things are going on. You get off the plane, you’re fatigued, everything feels weird, so it’s really easy not to get the right cues. If you were at home, you would pick up on them immediately.” Several people told me about the physician John LaMontagne, deputy director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who died suddenly in 2004 from a pulmonary embolism after leaving a plane in Mexico City. I called his former boss, Anthony Fauci, to learn more about what happened. “It was an extremely tragic situation,” said Fauci, who is also a physician. “John was sitting in the very back of a crowded plane going into Mexico City. He was seemingly doing fine, and as he was going through the passport line, he had a pulmonary embolism, and it essentially killed him right then and there.” Fauci, one of the country’s premier AIDS scientists, said he walks a lot on flights, even if he clogs the aisles. “I have always been extremely attentive to the dangers of flying, so I spend a lot of my time walking down the aisle and getting in people’s way,” he said. He explained how sitting in

for as long as 23 years. Through the end of 2003, 1,246 of the patients who had adenomas removed had died. Only 12 of those deaths were from colon cancer, far lower than the 25.4 colon cancer deaths that would have been expected in otherwise similar patients in the general population, according to the study results. Death rates from colon cancer were very low in a second group of 773 patients who were found to have harmless colon polyps during their colonoscopy. Only 1 of those patients died from colon cancer during the follow-up period.

a cramped airplane seat for a long time could cause clotting: “If you are sitting down and the under part of your knee is constricted, when you bend the femoral vein, it creates more blood statis,” or stagnation, which causes blood platelets to clump up and form clots, he said. But Victoria Day, a spokeswoman for Airlines for America, a trade association, said in an email that there’s “no specific link between air travel and DVT. The risk of developing a DVT during air travel is about the same as being seated for the same period of time at a desk, in a movie theater, on a bus or in a car.” I decided to reach out to a Web-based clearinghouse of information on DVT called ClotCare. The doctor who founded the organization, Henry Bussey, said the site receives more than 500,000 hits a month. Bussey said that the few studies on DVT showed that long-distance flying could be a “substantial risk.” But he also said that those who had a tendency toward clotting were older people with poor circulation, women who were on hormonal medicine and people with a genetic condition that allows clots to form more easily, not necessarily people who frequently travel long distances. He suggested that my DVT could have been caused by a genetic disorder that made me predisposed to clotting. So what does this mean for me? I can’t say just yet. After I’m off my anti-clotting medicine this spring, my doctor will test my blood to see if I have a genetic disorder. The result matters. And what will I do when I need to fly to Manila or Addis Ababa or some other distant city? I will probably shoot myself up with an anti-clotting medicine before each flight that is longer than six hours. I’ll wear knee-high compression socks to prevent my blood from pooling in my legs. And I’ll walk up and down the aisles, drink lots of water and avoid beverages that dehydrate me. I dodged a bullet twice. No need to do it again. — Donnelly is a freelance writer specializing in global health and the author of “A Twist of Faith: An American Christian’s Quest to Help Orphans in Africa,” to be published later this year.

have been getting too little sleep for decades

By Karen Kaplan Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Worried that your children aren’t getting enough sleep? You’re not alone. As one prominent educational psychologist put it, “Physicians and writers on school hygiene agree that children are likely to receive less sleep than is needful to them.” That assessment was offered way back in 1913, and it came from Lewis Terman, who went on to develop the Stanford-Binet IQ test. Terman’s concern for sleep-deprived kids tapped into a longstanding source of parental angst. It turns out that experts have been fretting about tired children since at least 1897. According to an article published online Monday by the journal Pediatrics, 32 sets of sleep guidelines for kids — containing 360 distinct recommendations for children of specific ages — were published between 1897 and 2009. During that time, the amount of recommended sleep fell by an average of 0.71 minutes per year. That added up to about 70 fewer minutes of suggested nightly sleep over the course of the 20th century. Among all the expert recommendations put forth, the researchers could find only one case for which the expert guidelines were rooted in medical evidence of a need for a particular amount of sleep. That was a 1926 study that measured the actual sleep of 500 kids between the ages of 6 and 15 who were deemed “healthy.” Other than that, it seems that experts simply looked at the amount of sleep children around them were getting and figured that they really needed a little bit more, the authors wrote. And what’s to blame for all this pediatric sleep deprivation? Why, new technology and the increasingly rigorous demands of modern life, of course. “The hurry and excitement of modern life is quite correctly held to be responsible for much of the insomnia of which we hear,” according to an editorial published in the British Medical Journal way back in 1894. As the Australian researchers explain, “In the early 1900s, artificial lighting, radio, reading and the cinema were considered to be the causes of delayed bedtimes. By the late 1990s, video games, television viewing, the Internet and mobile telephones were largely held responsible for such delays.”

MEDICAL MYSTERY

By Harry Jackson Jr. St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Helayne Seidman / The Washington Post

Rose Anderson and her husband Richard have struggled to cope with the tearful outbursts Richard has been prone to since being struck by a car in 2004.

What caused a man’s uncontrollable crying? By Sandra G. Boodman Special to The Washington Post

Of all the adjustments forced on Rose Anderson and her family, among the hardest was dealing with the crying jags. Around 9 p.m. on Aug. 4, 2004, while Anderson and her family were crossing the street from a New Jersey beach boardwalk to their hotel, a drunk driver barreled into her husband, Richard. He was flung 26 feet before slamming headfirst onto the pavement. A 47-year-old manager for the New York City government, Richard underwent emergency brain surgery and spent three weeks in a coma, followed by nearly two months in the hospital. He suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that left him with permanent cognitive and speech problems and robbed him of his sense of smell and taste. “They were preparing me for a lifetime of therapies,” recalled Rose of the weeks her husband spent at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in East Orange, N.J. But no one prepared the Andersons for Richard’s unpredictable and uncontrollable weeping, which began weeks after the accident and seemed to worsen with time. “He would cry with almost anyone,” his wife recalled. Thoughts of his dogs, his family or even happy occasions could trigger tears. His teenage daughters found the incidents, which occurred several times a week, almost unbearable. “As things got better, this shined brighter,” said Richard Anderson, who describes himself as a “very chauvinistic kind of guy” who was mortified by his inability to control his emotions. “It was very upsetting to me to have tears just rolling down my face.” Over time his longtime neurologist began to suspect that the crying was not a manifestation of sadness, grief or depression, but had a different cause.

A difficult recovery Doctors first told Rose Anderson that her husband would not survive. Somehow he did, but the new Richard bore little resemblance to the man she had known for 27 years. Previously calm and stoic, he was initially combative and agitated, did not recognize his family and spoke only gibberish. At Kessler, he regained his memory — although he still remembers nothing about the accident — and his speech improved. “We could see what the new Richard was going to be,” his wife recalled. Outwardly he showed few signs of his injury, although his eyes seemed devoid of their previous expressiveness. The accident left him with aphasia, difficulty expressing ideas and communicating verbally, and subject to profane, angry outbursts. Returning to his job was out of the question.

For his wife, the loss of their previously easy intimacy was especially difficult. “He read me, I read him — that was gone,” she recalled.

Sudden outbursts Several months after the accident, when Richard was back at the family’s Staten Island home, Rose got a call from him while she was at work. He was sobbing uncontrollably, behavior she had never witnessed. “I thought he was just overwhelmed,” she recalled. “It just killed me because there was nothing I could do. This was behavior I’d never seen. Richard has always been so strong.” At the same time, she understood why he might be crying. In his situation, who wouldn’t? Her feelings of helplessness were magnified by the enormity of the challenges her family faced. “Out of everything you’re dealing with, trying to keep everyone together, crying is the last thing you need,” she said. One daughter was struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder triggered by the accident. The other confided to her mother that “I just want to run away when I see Dad” crying. Friends who witnessed the tears tried to make the Andersons feel better by assuring them that they didn’t matter. But Richard found his crying deeply embarrassing and withdrew from social situations. One of the most poignant episodes occurred at a fatherdaughter high school dance when he suddenly burst into tears. He hurried out of the gym, hoping his daughter hadn’t seen anything, and called his wife from the car.

A better diagnosis Jonathan Fellus, a neurologist who is the former director of brain injury rehabilitation at Kessler, began treating Richard Anderson a month after the accident. Over the years, he and other doctors prescribed various antidepressants and anti-seizure drugs to try to quell the crying and angry outbursts. “Of course he’s depressed,” said Fellus, now director of rehabilitation at Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center in Secaucus, N.J. “But there came a point when he should have been better” — and he wasn’t. “Any little thing would seem to set him off.” Increasingly, Fellus said, he became convinced that Anderson’s crying was not a result of sadness or depression. He suspected a little-understood, often overlooked disorder called pseudobulbar affect (PBA) that can accompany a severe brain injury. PBA, which is characterized by involuntary and inappropriate crying or laughing episodes, is also seen in stroke patients as well as in those with multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Alzheimer’s disease.

PBA, previously known as emotional incontinence, pathological laughing and crying, and involuntary emotional expression disorder, is not new. It was first described by Charles Darwin in his groundbreaking 1872 text, “The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals.” Little is known about its precise cause, according to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Some researchers believe that it results from impaired chemical signaling in the brain, which disrupts the pathways that control the expression of emotion. It is estimated that about 1 million Americans show signs of the disorder. Distinguishing depression from PBA can be difficult because they can coexist. But unlike depression, episodes of PBA occur suddenly and may bear little relationship to the patient’s underlying emotional state. Some people with PBA cry when they are happy; others laugh when angry. Until recently, treatment largely consisted of antidepressants. In 2010, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first drug to treat PBA, Nuedexta, which was found to diminish episodes in patients with Lou Gehrig’s disease and MS. Nuedexta consists of a combination of two generic medicines: dextromethorphan, a common cough supressant, and quinidine, which is used to treat an irregular heartbeat. Dextromethorphan is believed to bind to brain receptors, reducing the laughing and crying, while quinidine slows the breakdown of dextromethorphan. An earlier version of the drug was rejected in 2006 because of concern about heart problems. Fellus said he mentioned PBA to the Andersons in 2009 and told them he thought Richard might benefit from the new drug. “I think he was the first patient I put on (it),” Fellus said. (Since then, the neurologist said, he has received about $25,000 in speaking fees from Avanir, the drug’s manufacturer.)

Dramatic change The results have been dramatic, the Andersons say. Within a month of starting the drug in early 2011 — seven years after he was injured — Richard’s crying episodes diminished from several times a week to twice a month. Richard said that he now feels more in control of his emotions. “I can put a cap on it,” he said. He no longer takes antidepressants, has a volunteer job working with other brain-injury patients and has expanded his social horizons. Rose said the drug has helped her, too. “It feels so good to regain that part of my relationship where I can lean on him a little bit,” she said. “It has definitely helped (us) regain some quality of life — and that’s a lot.”

ST. LOUIS — Caroll Marlow, 71, said she has been rescued from clinical depression by researchers at Washington University who want to help people older than 60. After more than 40 years of living with depression, she said, experiences and feelings that are routine for most other people are new for her. She goes to lunch to laugh with her sisters; she’s closer to her children and friends. She dates her husband. And she found a job. “I love it; I work a swing shift and I just love it,” she said. She’s a cashier at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in St. Louis County, Mo. “The people I work with are the best. They love older people. I like being around people. And do I have some stories!” “It’s like a bolt of lightning,” said Pat Marlow, 73, of Frontenac, Mo., and her husband of 50 years. “She’s a different person.” Dr. Eric Lenze, a geriatric psychiatrist, with Washington University School of Medicine, is conducting two studies. One seeks a drug regimen that addresses depression in people older than 60. The other looks at mindfulness meditation to ease depression and anxiety disorders in people older than 65. Lenze says the studies originated because when he sought depression and anxiety remedies for his patients, “There were few evidencebased options for treatments of elders with anxiety disorders and clinical depression.” Almost all of the studies for drug and other mental health remedies, “were on young, healthy people; nothing included older adults. “Our lab is looking at dosages, side effects, and other ways the treatments might affect older people differently,” Lenze said. The late-life depression study is testing two drugs, venlafaxine, a popular generic antidepressant drug with minimal side effects, and Abilify, which is supposed to enhance the effectiveness of antidepressant medicines. Abilify’s generic name is aripiprazole All participants get the venlafaxine for a time. If their conditions don’t improve, they will get Abilify or a placebo. They stay on the regimen

Caroll Marlow meditates while listening to an audio recording at her home in Frontenac, Mo. “The day I learned I had been accepted into the trial was the best day of my life. It gave me hope” said Marlow, who has suffered with depression caused by a chemical imbalance since her early 20s.

for several months. The foundation of the mindfulness meditation study “has shown promise as a treatment for depression and anxiety disorders based on studies in younger adults,” Lenze said. Mindfulness meditation, calming the mind by concentrating on something in the moment, has shown promise to have beneficial emotional and physical effects, Lenze said. As part of the anti-stress component of meditation, it reduces the level of cortisol, the “fight or flight” hormone that elevates when someone is under stress, he said. Cortisol serves a necessary short-term purpose, he said. But it’s harmful if it’s produced steadily for prolonged periods, Lenze said. A particularly bad effect for older people is that too much cortisol hampers memory and thinking functions and can increase the risk of dementia, Lenze said. “Our evidence is that if you can reduce (cortisol) there’s a memory improvement, people think better; their minds actually work better and they feel

better,” he said. “We think this is an instance where cognitive impairment in older adults is treatable.” Caroll Marlow was in the late-life depression study from February to July. In August, Lenze offered her the second study. “I wanted so hard to become better,” she said, explaining why she enlisted in both studies. She met others like herself at the weekly, two-hour sessions. “We just told each other the problems we shared,” she said. “Everyone’s problem was a little different. Yet, they were all the same. Depression is depression.” Caroll Marlow was diagnosed with clinical depression in the late 1960s. “I can’t think of a cause or something happening,” she said. “Maybe it’s just a chemical imbalance.” In the early 1970s, she was hospitalized for treatment — including old-style electroshock treatment. “If someone wanted to make a horror movie, that would be it,” said Pat Marlow, her husband. Over the years, the depression caused her to miss work and created strained relationships with family and friends. Pat Marlow never considered giving up. “It was difficult at times,” he said. “But we come from a time when we believed in the wedding vows. “Now, it’s like we’ve found each other again.” “The difference is like a burden had been lifted off of me,” Caroll Marlow said. “I’m able to laugh again. I feel like I’ve always wanted to feel.”

Fatty diet linked to gestational diabetes A new study from the National Institutes of Health suggests that women who consumed a diet high in animal fat and cholesterol before pregnancy are at higher risk for gestational diabetes than women whose pre-pregnancy diets were lower in animal fat and cholesterol. Gestational diabetes, which happens to some women during pregnancy, increases the odds for pregnancy complications and health problems in the newborn. Researchers also found that the increased risk for gestational diabetes from animal fat and cholesterol appeared to be independent of other

For example, exercise is known to reduce the risk of gestational diabetes, but even among the women who exercised, those who ate more animal fat and cholesterol had a higher likelihood of getting gestational diabetes.

Some advice: • If you’re trying to lose weight, focus on how much you eat all day, not when you eat. Don’t worry if you’ve eaten healthfully before and need to have dinner after 7. If you’ve eaten a lot already, however, have a smaller dinner or snack so you don’t blow your calorie budget for the day. Pigging out on fatty,

Find a proven diet and stick with it By Barbara Quinn The Monterey County Herald

What’s the best diet to lose weight? The one you can stick with. That was the finding from a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Overweight volunteers in this trial lost weight on a variety of diet strategies — high carbs, low carbs, high fat, low fat, high protein, average protein. And what was the one “major predictor” that guaranteed weight loss in these diet trials? Adherence. In other words, there are a variety of strategies to lose weight. But whatever we decide to do, it seems to be important to stick with it (duh). That said, some diet strategies — based on research studies — apparently are worth sticking to for the long term more than others. Here are a few examples: • CHOICE (Choose Healthy Options Consciously Every Day): Adults in this recent randomized controlled study stopped drinking sweetened beverages for six months. In their place, they drank water or another no-calorie beverage. Surprise … they effectively lost weight and their blood pressure went down as well. • DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension): Originally proven as an effective way to lower blood pressure, this diet plan is now recommended as a way to lose weight and make our hearts happy, too. Many experts now refer to the DASH plan as the “gold standard” for current diet recommendations. What is the DASH diet? Eat several cups of fruit and vegetables every day. (These foods are major sources of

potassium, magnesium and fiber that help regulate blood pressure and appetite). Add two to three low-fat or nonfat dairy foods (milk, yogurt, or cheese) to your diet every day. (Protein and calcium in these foods are important for blood pressure control and may help with weight loss attempts as well.) Eat four to five small servings of nuts, legumes (beans) or seeds each week. (Ditto on important nutrients that work in concert with other components of the diet.) Eat lean meats, fish and poultry in moderate portions. Cut way back on sweets, added sugars, fats and alcohol. How do we start moving toward a DASH-style diet? Choose to have a fruit or a vegetable (or both) at every meal. Add sunflower seeds or legumes to salads. Eat yogurt, fruit or nuts for snacks. Walk away from the salt shaker and sugar bowl. And find other ways to adhere to the DASH way of eating at www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/ public/heart/hbp/dash/new_ dash.pdf. • ENCORE (Exercise and Nutritional Interventions for Cardiovascular Health): Besides the fact that the acronym doesn’t quite match the words, this trial from Duke University combined the DASH diet with exercise and other weight loss strategies. The result? Even further improvements in blood pressure and other measurements of heart health than the DASH diet alone. Bottom line? The best way to lose weight is to stick with a proven plan. And a proven plan is one that combines health-enhancing food choices with consistent physical activity. Sound familiar?

Another option is tart dried cherries, which contain a hormone called melatonin that regulates sleep-wake cycles. Note: Avoid alcohol, which can disrupt sleep. • If you need to stay awake or alert, steer away from carbohydrates and focus on healthy proteins such as lean meat, chicken or fish instead. • If you just worked out, make sure your meal has a combination of protein and healthy carbohydrates for muscle growth and recovery. Two examples: spaghetti and mini meatballs or grilled chicken over mashed sweet potatoes. — Alison Johnson, Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)

Pick a better 100-calorie snack pack By Alison Johnson Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)

Many companies now package snacks in 100calorie portions, but they often don’t contain the nutrients your body needs. Some advice: • Read package labels. Plenty of unhealthy ingredients can go into a 100calorie snack. Ideally, a serving should contain less than .5 grams of saturated fat and less than 10 to 12 grams of sugar along with some fiber and protein. • Think outside the bag. Stay close to 100 calories with 4 to 6 ounces of low-fat yogurt, a hardboiled egg and a small piece of fruit, an ounce of cheese — look for one with less than two grams of fat per serving — or a third of a cup of edamame beans. • Load up on fruits. A small banana or mediumsized pear or apple should run about 100 calories, as would a cup of berries, half a large grapefruit or two plums. Or pair half a fruit serving with two teaspoons of peanut butter.

NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL TENANTS: The property in which you are living is in foreclosure. A foreclosure sale is scheduled for June 6, 2012. Unless the lender who is foreclosing on this property is paid, the foreclosure will go through and someone new will own this property. The following information applies to you only if you occupy and rent this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The information does not apply to you if you own this property or if you are not a residential tenant. If the foreclosure goes through, the business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale has the right to require you to move out. The buyer must first give you an eviction notice in writing that specifies the date by which you must move out. The buyer may not give you this notice until after the foreclosure sale happens. If you do not leave before the move-out date, the buyer can have the sheriff remove you from the property after a court hearing. You will receive notice of the court hearing. FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES YOU TO BE NOTIFIED IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THIS PROPERTY AS A RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNDER A LEGITIMATE RENTAL AGREEMENT, FEDERAL LAW REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING A CERTAIN NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE THE BUYER CAN REQUIRE YOU TO MOVE OUT. THE FEDERAL LAW THAT REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU THIS NOTICE IS EFFECTIVE UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2012. Under federal law, the buyer must give you at least 90 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If you are renting this property under a fixed-term lease (for example, a six-month or one-year lease), you may stay until the end of your lease term. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer's primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 90 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 90 days left. STATE LAW NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: IF THE FEDERAL LAW DOES NOT APPLY, STATE LAW STILL REQUIRES THE BUYER TO GIVE YOU NOTICE IN WRITING BEFORE REQUIRING YOU TO MOVE OUT IF YOU ARE OCCUPYING AND RENTING THE PROPERTY AS A TENANT IN GOOD FAITH. EVEN IF THE FEDERAL LAW REQUIREMENT IS NO LONGER EFFECTIVE AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2012, THE REQUIREMENT UNDER STATE LAW STILL APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION. Under state law, if you have a fixed-term lease (for example, a six-month or one-year lease), the buyer must give you at least 60 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. If the buyer wants to move in and use this property as the buyer's primary residence, the buyer can give you written notice and require you to move out after 30 days, even if you have a fixed-term lease with more than 30 days left. If you are renting under a month-to-month or week-to-week rental agreement, the buyer must give you at least 30 days notice in writing before requiring you to move out. IMPORTANT: For the buyer to be required to give you notice under state law, you must prove to the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale that you are occupying and renting this property as a residential dwelling under a legitimate rental agreement. The name and address of the business or individual who is handling the foreclosure sale is shown on this notice under the heading "TRUSTEE". You must mail or deliver your proof not later than 5/7/2012 (30 days before the date first set for the foreclosure sale). Your proof must be in writing and should be a copy of your rental agreement or lease. If you do not have a written rental agreement or lease, you can provide other proof, such as receipts for rent you paid. ABOUT YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT Under state law, you may apply your security deposit and any rent you paid in advance against the current rent you owe your landlord. To do this, you must notify your landlord in writing that you want to subtract the amount of your security deposit or prepaid rent from you rent payment. You may do this only for the rent you owe you current landlord. If you do this, you must do so before the foreclosure sale. The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale is not responsible to you for any deposit or prepaid rent you paid to your landlord. ABOUT YOUR TENANCY AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE The business or individual who buys this property at the foreclosure sale may be willing to allow you to stay as a tenant instead of requiring you to move out. You should contact the buyer to discuss that possibility if you would like to stay. Under state law, if the buyer accepts rent from you, signs a new residential rental agreement with you or does not notify you in writing within 30 days after the date of the foreclosure sale that you must move out, the buyer becomes your new landlord and must maintain the property. Otherwise, the buyer is not your landlord and is not responsible for maintaining the property on your behalf and you must move out by the date the buyer specifies in a notice to you. YOU SHOULD CONTINUE TO PAY RENT TO YOUR LANDLORD UNTIL THE PROPERTY IS SOLD TO ANOTHER BUSINESS OR INDIVIDUAL OR UNTIL A COURT OR A LENDER TELLS YOU OTHERWISE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY RENT, YOU CAN BE EVICTED. AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO APPLY A DEPOSIT YOU MADE OR PREPAID RENT YOU PAID AGAINST YOUR CURRENT RENT OBLIGATION. BE SURE TO KEEP PROOF OF ANY PAYMENTS YOU MAKE AND OF ANY NOTICE YOU GIVE OR RECEIVE CONCERNING THE APPLICATION OF YOUR DEPOSIT OR YOUR PREPAID RENT. IT IS UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO TRY TO FORCE YOU TO LEAVE YOUR HOME WITHOUT FIRST GOING TO COURT TO EVICT YOU. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS, YOU MAY WISH TO CONSULT A LAWYER. If you believe you need legal assistance, contact the Oregon State Bar at 800-452-7636 and ask for lawyer referral service. Contact information for the Oregon State Bar is included with this notice.
