HUBZone authority to rule in 3 months • Deschutes will find out sooner if it qualifies for help landing federal contracts By Andrew Clevenger The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — For Deschutes County businesses, a yearslong wait for access to a federal program that gives priority for federal contracts to economically hard-hit areas could soon be over. Wednesday, the Small Business Administration informed Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., that it will take only three months to update its designation of qualified areas for the Historically Underutilized Business Zone, or HUBZone, program IN D.C. once it receives data from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This quick turnaround means that Deschutes County could qualify for the HUBZone program as soon as August, months ahead of the anticipated date of January 2013. HUBZone uses a formula that relies heavily on census data and unemployment figures to determine eligibility for the program, designed to give local businesses in struggling areas a leg up in landing federal contracts. For more than a year, Merkley has been pressing the SBA, which administers the HUBZone program, and HUD, which analyzes census data to determine where “qualified census tracts” are located, to cut down on their processing time. Traditionally, it can take roughly two years after the census for the agencies to revise their designations. See HUBZone / A5

ISLAMABAD — Osama bin Laden spent nine years on the run in Pakistan after the Sept. 11 attacks, and during that time he moved between five safe houses and fathered four children, at least two of whom were born in a government hospital, his youngest wife has told Pakistani investigators. The testimony of Amal Ahmad Abdul Fateh, bin Laden’s 30-year-old

wife, offers the most detailed account yet of life on the run for the Bin Laden family in the years preceding the U.S. commando raid in May 2011 that killed the leader of alQaida at the age of 54. Her account is contained in a police report dated Jan. 19 that, as an account of that frantic period, contains manifest flaws: Fateh’s words are paraphrased by a police officer, and there is noticeably little detail

If you’re happy and you know it ... tell the government By Peter Whoriskey The Washington Post

Of all the phrases bestowed to us by the Founding Fathers, few come up more than “pursuit of happiness.” Yet who knows

what some have called gross national happiness. Funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, a panel of experts in psychology and economics began

convening in December to try to define reliable measures of “subjective well-being.” If successful, these could become official statistics. See Happiness / A5

Is the GOP ready for health care victory? By Dan Balz

Supporters and opponents of health care reform rally in front of the Supreme Court in Washington on Tuesday.

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Three days of oral arguments at the Supreme Court have given Republicans reason for optimism that President Obama’s health care law could be heading for a legal defeat in a few months. But will a legal victory this summer mean political success in November and beyond? No one can say with any certainty what the justices will decide. But the individual mandate — the symbol of all that conservatives loathe about the new health care law — appears in trouble, based on the giveand-take at the high court. And Justice Antonin Scalia argued that, if the mandate is ruled unconstitutional, the entire law should fall with it. Such a ruling obviously would constitute a huge victory for conservative opponents of the federal statute. But it could come with complications. First, a party that has built its health care message on the phrase “repeal and replace” would immediately find itself under pressure to reach consensus on how to reform the health care system. Second, Republicans, who benefited from a sizable enthusiasm gap in 2010, could face a Democratic opposition deeply angered and newly motivated by its setback in the high court.

Charles Dharapak The Associated Press

An ‘I told you so’ moment Republican pollster Whit Ayres summed up the political consequences if the court moves to overturn Obama’s law in part or in whole: “If the court strikes down just the individual mandate, but leaves the rest of an increasingly unstable and unworkable structure, then the GOP has an ‘I told you so’ moment and an even greater argument for repeal. If the court strikes down the whole law, then the GOP has a huge ‘I told you so moment,’ but loses one of several large targets for the fall campaign. There are plenty of other targets remaining (jobs, stimulus, fiscal irresponsibility), but it loses a big one.” For almost three years, health care has been the energizing force inside the conservative movement. It is arguable that the health care law, as much as Obama’s stimulus spending,

created the tea party movement that helped power Republicans to victory in the 2010 elections, and there’s no doubt that it has remained the most powerful organizing message for GOP candidates. The legal battle over the law has helped bind conservatives together in common cause at a time when the Republican nomination contest has been a disappointment to many in the party.

What’s the GOP plan? Republicans have been far more united around the concept of repeal than replace, however. Coming together around a replacement for Obama’s comprehensive solution to the problems of rising costs and lack of insurance among roughly 45 million Americans will be a major challenge. Up to now, Republicans have offered generalities, not a plan. Many of the provisions of

the current law are enormously popular, among them the prohibition against denying coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and the ability of young people to stay on their parents’ insurance until they reach age 26. Some ideas that Republicans have long advocated are also popular, among them tighter limits on medical malpractice lawsuits. Republicans favor market solutions to many of the problems of today’s health care system. But what uniform standards, if any, should apply to the health care system, and what role would the federal government be given to set those standards under a Republican plan? Critics of the president’s plan said it did not do enough to control costs. Do Republicans have politically palatable answers to offer if the court decides the current law should be scrapped? Republican optimism at this moment, as everyone awaits the court’s decision, is understandable. A ruling that goes against the administration would represent a major defeat for the president and his party. It would successfully end one battle in the GOP’s long fight against Obama, but it would open up another. Are Republicans truly ready for what would come next?



Plastic from plants? It may happen soon, say scientists

Gun sales are up; some cite Obama re-election fears

By Amina Khan Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Plastic is anathema to many among the eco-conscious — but what if manufacturers could stop making so much of it from oil and start making more of it from plants? In a study in the journal Science, researchers in the Netherlands say they have developed a class of iron catalysts that help turn plant material — such as fast-growing trees and certain grasses — into the chemical building blocks used to make plastic products, drugs and even cosmetics. Plastic typically is made from a crude oil derivative and therefore depends on Earth’s finite oil supplies. But plant material can also yield plastics if it is burned, producing a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide known as synthesis gas. In the presence of a catalyst, typically iron-based, the so-called syngas yields lower olefins, which form plastic when they’re chemically strung together. But today’s catalysts aren’t very effective and produce a lot of methane as a byproduct, which has to be separated from the mix. The reaction also creates carbon “dust” that can clog the equipment. A team led by study senior author Krijn de Jong, who specializes in inorganic chemistry at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, began chemically fiddling with different catalysts to see whether they could create ones that worked better. They found that an ironbased catalyst worked best when it consisted of much smaller grains — 20 nanometers, as opposed to a more typical size of 500 nanometers — and when the grains were kept evenly spaced from one another instead of clustering together. They also found — by pure luck — that adding a smidgen of sodium and sulfur improved the catalyst’s effectiveness too. They made this discovery because a chemical they had used to accelerate the catalyst’s reactions was inadvertently contaminated with sodium and sulfur. “You might call it serendipity,” de Jong said.

Gun sales are booming. Enthusiasts are stocking up on guns and ammunition, and some in the industry are wondering whether sales are spiking as they did after Democrat Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008. That rush created a nationwide shortage. “We’re at the top of the roller coaster and we’re about to plummet down the side,” said DeWayne Irwin, owner of the Cheaper Than Dirt gun store in north Fort Worth, which set a sales record for the month of February. “It’s fixing to happen again. I don’t know if it will be to the same extent it was before, but I see it coming. “Look who the Republicans are trying to put against Obama,” he said.

“It’s the Keystone Kops, and people are getting scared. People are terrified he’s going to get re-elected and then he won’t care about getting votes next time. He’ll just pass whatever legislation he wants.” Some say the uptick in sales at gun stores could also be linked to anything from the arrival of tax refunds to a spending spree by fans of the National Geographic Channel’s “Doomsday Preppers” show, which chronicles people preparing for the end of the world. Nationwide, more people than ever are buying firearms. Last year, the FBI received more than 16.3 million inquiries from people running criminal background checks on potential gun buyers. That’s up from 12.7 million in 2008 and 11.4 million in 2007, FBI records show. Texas had around 1 mil-

lion such requests in each of the past four years, the second most, behind Kentucky, which had nearly double that. Officials say Kentucky’s numbers are high because fresh background checks are run every month there on gun owners with concealed-weapons permits. “I’m constantly getting questions from people in the gun community about this (issue),” said Alan Korwin, author of nine gun law books, including “Gun Laws of America,” and operator of “People are concerned that if Obama wins, as a lame duck, he will go after firearms in a way we have never seen before. “We saw a fire sale when he was elected last time,” he said. “But the speculation is that now ... with his need to get re-elected gone, the sky is the limit on attacking the Second Amendment.”

• After three days of oral arguments on the health care law, Supreme Court justices conduct a secret, preliminary vote, kicking off three months of behind-the-scenes deliberations on the law’s fate. The outcome will shape Chief Justice John Roberts’s legacy, influence President Obama’s re-election prospects and potentially deepen the partisan gulf that is already dividing the country, A1 • Tokyo-based computer security firm Trend Micro releases a report linking a former graduate student at a Chinese university to a breach of computers belonging to companies in Japan and India and to Tibetan activists.

T S Romney set to challenge Obama on his foreign policy record By Scott Wilson The Washington Post

Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney is preparing to broaden his challenge to President Barack Obama’s management of foreign affairs, sensing political vulnerability in an area in which the incumbent has received his strongest public support. With the nation facing a high unemployment rate and uncertain economic growth, foreign policy has remained on the periphery of the presidential race. Republicans seeking their party nomination have trained their sharpest criticism of Obama on his economic record, where they perceive him to be weakest. That is changing, particularly in the Romney campaign, as the former Massachusetts governor begins to set his sights on the general election. Advisers say Romney, cast by the Obama campaign as a foreign policy novice, is unwilling to concede the issue. The emergence of foreign policy in the campaign comes during a particularly difficult period in Afghanistan and at a time when fears are rising about Iran’s nuclear program. Those concerns, and new ones about what Obama intends to do overseas if reelected, have elevated the issue in the race. Advisers say Romney intends to deliver a major foreign policy address in April or May, depending on the status of the primary contest, and create what one adviser described as a series of “platforms” to highlight the differences between the two candidates. “In the end, this president will lose because he failed on the economy — that’s the referendum,” said Richard Williamson, a senior foreign policy adviser to the Romney campaign. “But the same sort of naivete and fecklessness have been evident on the foreign policy side as well. And we welcome having that debate.” Advised primarily by veterans of the Reagan and both Bush administrations, Romney has been bolder in recent weeks in contrasting his foreign policy views with those of Obama.

Bin Laden Continued from A1 Bin Laden’s three widows are of great interest because they hold the answers to some of the questions that frustrated Western intelligence in the years after 2001. Currently under house arrest in Islamabad, their lawyer says he expects them and two adult children — bin Laden’s daughters Maryam, 21, and Sumaya, 20 — to be charged with breaking Pakistani immigration laws on April 2. A conviction of those crimes carries a possible five-year jail sentence. The wives have cooperated with the authorities to varying degrees. Investigators say the older women, named in court documents as Kharia Hussain Sabir and Siham Sharif, both citizens of Saudi Arabia, have largely refused to cooperate with investigators. However, Fateh, who was wounded in the raid that killed her husband, has spoken out. The report, by a joint investigative panel made up of civilian and military officials, was first noted by the Pakistani newspaper Dawn on Thursday; The New York Times later obtained a copy of the filing. In Washington, U.S. officials said that while they could not confirm every detail of the report, it appeared generally consistent with what is known and believed about bin Laden’s movements. In the report’s account, Fateh said she agreed to marry bin Laden in 2000 because “she had a desire of marry-

House passes GOP budget blueprint Diagnoses of autism on the rise

By Jonathan Weisman

New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — A fierce twoday debate over a Republican budget plan portrayed as either a path to prosperity or a road to ruin ended Thursday with House passage of a blueprint that would transform Medicare, cut domestic spending to levels not seen since World War II and order up a drastic overhaul of the tax code. The plan, which passed 228-191, with no Democratic votes and 10 Republican defections, will form the template around which much of the 2012 election will be fought. Democrats will try to hang its extensive changes to Medicare around the necks of vulnerable Republican candidates, along with the accusation that Republicans supported a program to punish the poor and elderly while rewarding the rich with still more tax cuts. Republicans will say theirs is the party willing to make the tough choices to tame a soaring federal debt. “It is so rare in American politics to arrive at a moment in which the debate revolves around the fundamental nature of American democracy and the social contract, but that is exactly where we are today,” said Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Budget Committee and the architect of the blueprint, adding, “Today’s budget is a vote of confidence for the American experiment.” Democrats said they saw nothing brave in voting to decimate programs for the poor, like food stamps and Medicaid, while offering potentially huge tax cuts for the rich. The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, said, “Today’s vote stands as another example of the Republican establishment grasping onto the same failed economic policies that stacked the deck against the middle class and created the worst financial crisis in decades.”

House Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., left, and Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, announced the plan’s passage on Thursday.

A political focal point The budget’s prescriptions will not become law this year. Leaders of the Democratic-controlled Senate have made clear they will not pass any budget, and instead will rely on spending caps established last July during the showdown over the federal debt limit. But the plan drafted by Ryan will probably become the standard by which Republican candidates for the House, Senate and White House are measured. Notably, Rep. Denny Rehberg, who is seeking a Senate seat in Montana, was one of the 10 Republicans who voted no. And the plan will remain a political focal point of Congress for months. The budget orders six House committees to draft plans to cut the deficit by $261 billion by early May to help avert automatic cuts to the military that will take place under last summer’s agreement unless a broad deficit reduction plan is passed.

Highway funding extended for 90 days WASHINGTON — Unable to agree on highway funding and eager to start a two-week recess, Congress on Thursday passed a 90-day stopgap measure to continue paying for the nation’s highways and infrastructure programs, averting a halt in road and infrastructure projects because of the inability of lawmakers to agree on a broader transportation measure. The measure is the ninth extension since a $286 billion, multiyear plan ended in 2009; had Congress taken no action, the current extension would have expired over the weekend. It passed the House by 266-158, with 10 Republicans voting against the measure and 37 Democrats voting for it. Roughly two hours later, the Senate agreed to the measure by voice vote. — New York Times News Service

Inquiry into Fukushima plant suggests worse damage By Hiroko Tabuchi New York Times News Service

The damage to one of three stricken reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant could be worse than previously thought, a recent internal investigation has shown, raising new concerns over the plant’s stability and complicating the post-disaster cleanup. The government has said the plant’s three badly damaged reactors have been in a relatively stable state, called a cold shutdown, for months and officials say that continues. But new tests suggest the plant — ravaged last March when a giant earthquake and tsunami hit the area — might not be as stable as the government or the operator of the plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co., had hoped.

ing a mujahid.” She flew into Karachi in July that year and, months later, crossed into Afghanistan to join bin Laden and two other wives at his base on a farm outside Kandahar. The Sept. 11 attacks caused the bin Laden family to “scatter,” the report said. She returned to Karachi with her newborn daughter, Safia, where they stayed for about nine months. They changed houses up to seven times under arrangements brokered by “some Pakistani family” and bin Laden’s elder son, Saad. Other senior al-Qaida figures were also in Karachi, a sprawling city of up to 18 million people. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the architect of the Sept. 11 attacks, claims to have personally killed The Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl there during this period; he was captured at a house in Rawalpindi in March 2003. Fateh said she left Karachi in the second half of 2002 for Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, where she was reunited with her husband. The American pursuit of bin Laden was running high: al-Qaida operatives had attacked an Israeli-owned hotel in Kenya and nightclubs in Indonesia, and with CIA intelligence resources not yet diverted to Iraq, the search was firmly focused on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border area. Bin Laden, according to his wife, took his family deep into rural mountain areas of northwest Pakistan — but not, notably, into the tribal belt where much Western attention was

The key to keeping the reactors stable is keeping their fuel rods cool with water. The company announced this week that an examination of one reactor, No. 2, showed the water level in an outer containment vessel was far lower than estimated, which could indicate that the already badly damaged uranium fuel might not be completely submerged and, therefore, is in danger of heating up. Cooling water in that vessel, called the drywell, was just 2 feet deep, rather than the 33-foot level estimated by TEPCO officials when the government declared the plant stable in December. That is probably not a problem for the fuel that the company says has leaked into the drywell

focused. First they stayed in Shangla District in Swat, a picturesque area about 80 miles northwest of the capital, Islamabad, where they stayed in two different houses for between eight and nine months. Then in 2003 they moved to Haripur, a small town even closer to Islamabad, where they stayed in a rented house for two years. Here, Fateh gave birth to a girl, Aasia, in 2003 and a boy, Ibrahim in 2004 — both of whom were delivered in a local government hospital. The police report states that Fateh “stayed in hospital for a very short time of about 23 hours” on each occasion. A separate document states that she gave fake identity papers to hospital staff. Finally, in mid-2005, according to Fateh, bin Laden and his family moved to Abbottabad, 20 miles east of Haripur, where she gave birth to another two children: Zainab in 2006 and Hussain in 2008. Fateh told investigators that the houses in Swat, Haripur and Abbottabad were orga-

from an inner containment vessel because TEPCO says that melted fuel is unlikely to be higher than 2 feet. But TEPCO officials said the low water in the drywell left open the possibility that the water level in the leaking inner containment vessel, where most of the fuel is thought to be, were also low. Experts say that could leave the fuel there exposed and lead to more damage. The fuel would likely then leach more radioactive materials into the water that is flowing through the reactor to cool it. That scenario would be particularly problematic since the company has long feared that some of the tons of water it is using to cool the reactors is escaping into the ground or into the ocean at the seaside plant.

Ibrahim is believed to refer to Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, a Pakistani-born Pashtun who grew up in Kuwait and who was known for a time to U.S. intelligence as “the courier,” because he carried the al-Qaida leader’s messages. When U.S. Navy SEAL commandos stormed the Abbottabad house last May, they killed bin Laden, and shot Fateh, who was in the same room, in the leg. She survived but four others were killed in the raid: the courier, his wife Bushra, his brother, Abrar, and bin Laden’s 20-year-old son, Khalil. Bin Laden’s three wives are now confined to a rented house in Islamabad. On Tuesday, a cousin of Fateh’s in Yemen claimed that she was being held in a basement. “She limps from a bullet wound in her knee and she’s suffering from psychological trauma and very low blood pressure,” Hameed al-Sadeh told Reuters.

About 1 in 88 children in the United States has autism and the prevalence of the condition has risen nearly 80 percent over the last decade, federal health officials reported Thursday. The new survey, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is the latest evidence of a steady upward trend of a disorder whose cause remains unknown despite much research in recent years. The rising rate of autism could be the result of finding children missed in earlier surveys or an actual increase in the condition, or a combination of the two. The trend has been observed in Canada and Western Europe as well as the United States. Children with the most extreme form of autism are socially withdrawn, speak little, dislike affection and eye contact, and engage in repetitive actions. Once thought to be very rare, milder forms are now recognized. One of them, Asperger syndrome, describes behavior that in the past might have been seen as peculiar and abnormal but not evidence of illness. The CDC study surveyed 14 states for the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders among 8-year-olds in 2008. The prevalence that year of 11.3 cases per 1,000 children was 23 percent higher than in 2006. It was 78 percent higher than in 2002, when the survey began. Autistic children were diagnosed at age 4 on average — six months earlier than in 2006, but not early enough for optimal therapy, according to many experts. The survey found large unexplained differences between sexes, ethnic groups and states. For example, autism is five times more common in boys than girls (a lopsided ratio found in many other studies). The fraction of autistic children with average or aboveaverage intelligence has risen more than the fraction with “intellectual disability.” Autism prevalence in Hispanic children is two-thirds that of white children, but is rising faster in them and in black children than in white ones. The prevalence in Utah’s children is four times that of Alabama’s. Such variation suggests that better identification of autism cases contributes to the higher number, but whether it explains the trend completely is a matter of huge debate. “This is the billion-dollar question, isn’t it?” said Li-Ching Lee, an epidemiologist who headed the survey in Maryland. In a telephone press briefing with reporters, Thomas Frieden, CDC’s director, said the increase could be “the result of better detection. It is a possibility.” What’s not a matter of debate, he said, is that autism is common and doctors and teachers need to find children with it earlier, when treatment is most effective. “There are many children and families who need help. There are many children who are not receiving services early enough or consistently enough,” Frieden said.

Health care Continued from A1 Jeffrey Fisher, a former clerk and co-director of the Supreme Court Litigation Clinic at Stanford Law School, said the delay will be something of a lesson for the country. “The Supreme Court is probably the closest thing we have in the country to a true deliberative body,” he said, meaning that the justices take their time and are required to sign their names to long expositions of the legal reasoning behind their decisions. And it will be interesting to see how the court’s final decision matches the tone of the oral arguments, which split largely along the court’s ideological divide. The questions at oral arguments are usually pretty true indicators of the justices’ leanings. But there are cases, especially those involving major constitutional issues, in which the tone can be misleading. The process today will begin in the court’s conference room just off the chambers of Chief Justice John Roberts. He will take his place at the head of the table and his eight colleagues will arrange themselves by seniority. No one else will be in the room. The court’s recent tradition has been that the chief justice lays out the case, and then informs the others how he will vote. The process moves from justice to justice by seniority, and the rule is that no one speaks twice until everyone has spoken once. Junior justices — on this court, Elena Kagan — are often surprised to find themselves casting the deciding vote. Despite their combative tone at oral arguments and cutting remarks in the final opinions, the justices invariably describe the conference room as a place of decorum and politeness.

Happiness Continued from A1 The idea of the government tallying personal feelings might seem frivolous — or impossibly difficult. For decades, after all, the world has gotten by with gauging a nation’s quality of life on the basis of its GDP, or gross domestic product, the sum of its economic output. But economists and others have long recognized that GDP, a dollars and cents measure, doesn’t count everything that might be considered important when assessing living conditions. “Our gross national product, if we should judge America by that, counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage. ... It measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile,” Robert Kennedy said in a 1968 speech. But as the United States ventures into the squishy realm of feelings, statisticians will first have to define happiness and then how to measure it. Neither is a trivial matter. There is even some doubt whether people, when polled, can accurately say whether they are happy. “I’m worried about the word ‘happiness,’ ” Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman, an author and economist, said during a break in a meeting last week. Whatever the obstacles, the effort has momentum. President Barack Obama has “welcomed” the effort, according to a White House release, and his chief economic adviser, Alan Krueger, is one of the leading researchers in the field. Before being named chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, Krueger co-wrote one of the key papers on the topic. In it, Krueger and his co-authors proposed a method for generating a national statistic covering “the flow of emotional experience during daily activities.”

Bremont Continued from A1 The court’s order was in response to a motion seeking the changes that was filed jointly by defense attorney L. Todd Wilson and Deputy District Attorney Kandy Gies. The motion notes the changes came following negotiations between both sides. “The current conditions of Defendant’s release agreement prohibit him from leaving his residence ... for reasons other than to meet with his at-

“In that room, when we discuss First Amendment, abortion, Second Amendment, death penalty, pre-emption, commerce clause, the cases of great consequence — Bush vs. Gore — I still have yet to hear the first unkind word,” Justice Clarence Thomas last year. If Roberts is in the majority after the vote, he will either decide to write the court’s ruling or choose the justice who will. If he is not, the senior justice on the prevailing side will make the assignment. A similar process will be under way among the dissenters, because every justice in every opinion puts his or her name on an explanation. Instead of the personal armtwisting and individual conversations that might characterize Congress, justices say their negotiations come through reading draft opinions and informing the author of additions and deletions that might be needed to win unqualified support. “There are a fair number of cases in which some justices disagree with the majority at the conference after oral argument but ultimately are persuaded to join its opinion,” retired justice John Paul Stevens wrote in his book “Five Chiefs.” But even though justices may join a majority, “what’s more unusual is for a vote to change in a way to change the outcome,” said Fisher, who clerked for Stevens. No one can say exactly how often that happens. But the case that comes up in any discussion of the issue is the abortion-rights case Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania vs. Casey. Kennedy was with conservatives in the court’s early vote, which would have overturned Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion. Instead, he joined an opinion that reaffirmed most of Roe vs. Wade.

The panel, organized by the nonprofit National Academies, has already met with two of the key figures in the U.S. statistical bureaucracy: Robert Groves, the director of the U.S. Census Bureau, and Steve Landefeld, the director of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the federal agency that puts out the gross domestic product figures. According to proponents, a measure of happiness could help assess the success or failure of a range of government policies. It could gauge the virtues of a health benefit or establish whether education has more value than simply higher incomes. It might also detect extremes of inequality or imbalances in how people divide their time between work and leisure. “The phrase ‘pursuit of happiness’ is in the Declaration of Independence, so it’s not a huge stretch to say we might want to measure life satisfaction,” said panel member Carol Graham, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and the author of a book on the topic.

Advocates appeal to a justice’s notion of liberty By Adam Liptak New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The way to frame a Supreme Court argument meant to persuade Justice Anthony Kennedy is to talk about liberty. It is ANALYSIS his touchstone and guiding principle, and his conception of liberty is likely to determine the future of President Barack Obama’s health care law. If the administration is to prevail in the case, it must capture at least one vote beyond those of the court’s four more liberal justices, who are thought virtually certain to vote to uphold the law. The administration’s best hope is Kennedy. The point was not lost on Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, who concluded his defense of the law at the court this week with remarks aimed squarely at Kennedy. Verrilli said there was “a profound connection” between health care and liberty. “There will be millions of people with chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease,” he said, “and as a result of the health care that they will get, they will be unshackled from the disabilities that those diseases put on them and have the opportunity to enjoy the blessings of liberty.” Paul Clement, representing 26 states challenging the law, had a comeback. “I would respectfully suggest,” he said, “that it’s a very funny conception of liberty that forces somebody to purchase an insurance policy whether they want it or not.” Kennedy’s understanding

tion to measuring people’s well-being.” Far ahead in such measures, however, is the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, which has embraced the notion of “Gross National Happiness” as a national goal and has created a commission to achieve it. “There has been a lot of momentum,” said Arthur Stone, chair of the U.S. panel, and a distinguished professor in the psychiatry department at Stony Brook University. “It’s kind of a snowball.”

What is happiness?

As odd as it may sound, the U.S. effort follows a spate of high-profile efforts by other governments. In Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron has embraced the idea, and last year the government began asking survey respondents things like “Over all, how happy did you feel yesterday?” and “Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?” The British Economic and Social Research Council is also funding the U.S. panel’s $370,000 budget. In France, President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2008 launched a commission including two Nobel winners, Joseph Stiglitz and Amartya Sen, which opined that the “time is ripe for our measurement system to shift emphasis from measuring economic produc-

When talking about measuring happiness, researchers make what they say is a critical distinction between two ways that people feel happy. There is “experiential wellbeing,” or how a person feels about their daily activities, and then there is “life satisfaction,” or how people remember and judge their lives or parts of it. To explain the difference, Kahneman tells the story of a man he met who was listening to a recording of a beautiful symphony — until it ended in a horrible screech. The man quite emotionally told Kahneman that the screeching “ruined the whole experience.” But Kahneman notes that it really hadn’t. “What it had ruined was the memory of the experience,” Kahneman said during a 2010 lecture. “He had had the experience. He had had 20 minutes of glorious music.” As he puts it, there are two aspects of happiness, one sensed by the “experiencing self” and the other “the remembering self who maintains the story of our lives.” Researchers believe it is relatively straightforward to gauge the more reflective aspect of happiness, which is often referred to as “life satisfaction.” Surveys can simply ask people, “Generally speaking, how sat-

torneys or for medical appointments,” the motion said. “This substantially prejudices the Defendant’s ability to prepare and defend in this matter.” Previous conditions of Bremont’s release agreement remain intact. He’s required to wear an ankle bracelet with electronic monitoring, and cannot have contact with the alleged victim or any minors except his own children under supervision. Bremont also was required to surrender his passport. Bremont was first arrest-

edFeb. 18 by Redmond police shortly after authorities began an investigation. The next day, Bremont was released from Deschutes County Jail after being bailed out by Scott Reed, a family member and the principal of Taft High School in Lincoln City. Bremont was arrested again less than a week later in Albany for allegedly violating a condition of his release agreement. Electronic monitoring was added to Bremont’s release agreement after the second arrest. Bremont, 39, was director

“I really don’t think Justice Kennedy has any idea at the moment how he’s going to vote in these cases.” — Helen Knowles, author of “The Tie Goes to Freedom: Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on Liberty.”

of liberty is idiosyncratic, and there is every reason to think that both lawyers’ arguments in the concluding minutes of the argument Wednesday afternoon resonated with him, said Helen Knowles, author of “The Tie Goes to Freedom: Justice Anthony M. Kennedy on Liberty.” “I really don’t think Justice Kennedy has any idea at the moment how he’s going to vote in these cases,” Knowles said. Indeed, the evidence from the key argument Tuesday, on the constitutionality of the health care law’s requirement that most Americans obtain insurance or pay a penalty, was mixed. Justices tend to ask more questions of the lawyers whose positions they oppose, and Kennedy posed six questions to Verrilli and just three to the two lawyers challenging the law. The questions to Verrilli were, moreover, mostly easy to read. They were crisp expressions of discomfort with the administration’s arguments. “Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?” Kennedy asked. “This is a step beyond what our cases have allowed, the affirmative duty to act to go into commerce. If that is so, do you not have a heavy burden of justification?” “Can you identify for us some limits on the commerce clause?” he asked. Those questions fit neatly within one strain of Kennedy’s understanding of liberty, one

isfied are you with your life?” Measuring the other aspect of happiness, or experiential well-being, meanwhile, also poses logistical problems. It can be cumbersome and costly to track a person’s feelings across a day’s time. For example, when researchers have gauged this kind of well-being, they have sometimes given subjects an electronic device. When signaled by the device, the subjects are required to report their activities and feelings. Other times researchers have asked people to record their feelings in diaries. Even if happiness can be measured accurately, some statisticians wonder whether it will reveal much more than the GDP figure does. After all, income and life satisfaction often appear to be closely correlated. Similarly, researches have found that experiential happiness rises with income, though only up to the point where income rises to $75,000. After that, “experiential happiness” ceases to rise much. Still, the correlation between income and happiness, while generally strong, is far from pure. There are outliers. For example, per-capita GDP in the United States is roughly six times that of Panama, according to International Monetary Fund figures. But in the most recent 2010 Gallup measure of life satisfaction, the U.S. ranked 12th in the world, one behind Panama. Landefeld, director of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, said in an interview that he’s skeptical of measurements of subjective well-being, in part because it’s not clear what exactly is being measured and whether such measures move in response to government policy. “It’s important for us to be relevant,” he said. But “my concern is, how would you use it?”

he discussed at length last year in an opinion for a unanimous court. Limiting federal power, he wrote, “protects the liberty of all persons within a state by ensuring that laws enacted in excess of delegated governmental power cannot direct or control their actions. By denying any one government complete jurisdiction over all the concerns of public life, federalism protects the liberty of the individual from arbitrary power. When government acts in excess of its lawful powers, that liberty is at stake.” The case concerned a federal prosecution of a domestic dispute. Clement was the lawyer on the winning side. But there is another strain to Kennedy’s conception of liberty, one that may help Verrilli. “When you think about liberty relative to Kennedy,” Knowles said, “the element most important to him will be the idea of individual responsibility. He thinks the government has the power to ensure that the responsible exercise of liberty be done in an educated manner.” That impulse seemed to inform the most closely scrutinized exchange Tuesday. “The young person who is uninsured,” Kennedy told Michael Carvin, a lawyer for private parties challenging the law, “is uniquely proximately very close to affecting the rates of insurance and the costs of providing medical care in a way that is not true

HUBZone Continued from A1 “We’ve been fighting (for the HUBZone changes) for what seems like forever,” Merkley said. “I just thought, ‘How can this be so difficult?’ Everyone on Capitol Hill talks about cutting red tape” and making the wheels of government turn more smoothly. Merkley tried repeatedly to revise the HUBZone program through amendments attached to larger bills, including the Small Business Innovation Research bill last March, the Economic Development Administration Reauthorization Act in June, the fiscal year 2012 Energy Appropriations bill in November, and the Defense Authorization bill in December. Along with Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, Merkley also introduced standalone legislation in November, which passed the Senate by unanimous consent the following month. But ultimately, both agencies made commitments to Merkley to streamline their own processes without new language being signed into law. “I found it a very interesting journey,” Merkley said. “I feel like it’s been running a gauntlet.” The issue is particularly pressing in Deschutes County, which did not qualify after the 2000 census, which was conducted when the local economy was booming.

in other industries. That’s my concern in the case.” Carvin responded that the law actually frustrated individual responsibility. “They’re compelling us to enter into the marketplace,” he said, but “they’re prohibiting us from buying the only economically sensible product that we would want, catastrophic insurance.” That answer may or may not have satisfied Kennedy, but it was alert to his thinking. As Ilya Shapiro wrote in The Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy in 2010, “Justice Kennedy’s jurisprudence is a constant struggle to find the right balance between liberty and responsibility.” Writing in The New Republic in 2010, Eric Posner, a law professor at the University of Chicago, said Kennedy’s writing could be vapid and disappointing for its lack of rigor. “Liberty, in his mind, explains the right to abortion, but does not stand in the way of certain limits on abortion,” Posner wrote. “In what sense, then, does this commitment to liberty have explanatory power?” Kennedy may be hard to read, but it does not stop people from trying. The Supreme Court chamber grows a little quieter when he asks a question, and other justices seem to grow more attentive. And the lawyers who argued before him this week indicated intimate familiarity with his writings and a fine-tuned sensitivity to trying to satisfy him. On hearing that Kennedy had concerns about how young people without insurance affect others’ rates, Carvin paused before he answered. “I may be misunderstanding you, Justice Kennedy,” Carvin said. “I hope I’m not.”

Neighboring Crook and Jefferson counties did qualify as HUBZones after the 2000 census, so small businesses there have had an advantage in landing federal contracts, such as forest management and fire mitigation on federally owned land. Unemployment, a key factor in HUBZone eligibility, spiked in Deschutes County after the housing market collapsed, reaching a peak of 15.6 percent in July 2009. Oregon’s statewide unemployment at the time was 11.6 percent. Eight years earlier, Deschutes County’s rate of 6.3 percent was just under the statewide 6.5 percent. In November 2011, the most recent figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show Deschutes County’s unemployment rate at 11.4 percent, still significantly higher than the statewide rate of 8.6 percent. Through the HUBZone program, the federal government tries to steer 3 percent of all dollars for federal prime contracts to HUBZone-certified small businesses. — Reporter: 202-662-7456,

IN BRIEF Best Buy closures: No word on Bend Best Buy officials declined to say Thursday whether Bend’s store would be one of 50 nationwide to close by 2015. The company announced Thursday that it would close 50 of its box stores across the country, to save about $800 million in operating expenses over the next three years. In a news release sent to members of the media Thursday, Best Buy spokeswoman Kelly Groehler said specific locations for closure had not been decided. “We will announce details about specific store locations and timing for closings once they are finalized,” Groehler said. “We are not commenting further at this time.” The Minnesota-based electronics retailer suffered through a poor fourth quarter of 2011, with financial documents showing a loss of $1.7 billion. An employee at Bend’s Best Buy, at 63455 N. Highway 97, declined to comment, saying the local store wasn’t authorized to talk to the media.

Cascade Bancorp posts $47 million loss in 2011 By Jordan Novet The Bulletin

Cascade Bancorp posted a $47.28 million net loss in 2011, marking the fourth consecutive year of losses, according to data the company filed Tuesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Terry Zink, president and CEO of the Bend-based parent company of Bank of the Cascades, attributed much of the loss to a bulk sale of $110 million in nonperforming and other loans the bank executed in September. Through a separate com-

pany, NW Bend LLC, the asset-management company Oaktree Capital Management LP paid the bank $58 million for the assets, resulting in a roughly $52 million loss for the bank on the deal. Zink, who took the bank’s reins in January from longtime president Patricia Moss, said he wasn’t sure if the bank would have ended the year in the red or the black if the deal had not gone through. But getting it done was key to improving the bank’s position, he said. See Bank / B4

Credit unions push for a bill that would boost lending power By Elon Glucklich The Bulletin

Andy Zeigert / The Bulletin


Officials with Mid Oregon Credit Union in Bend said they could lend $21 million more to Central Oregon small businesses this year if Congress passes legislation granting them authority to lend out a higher share of their total assets. More than 200 Pacific Northwest credit union officials, including Mid Oregon Credit Union executives, are pushing for Congress to pass a pair of stalled pieces of legislation, which would more than double the percentage of total assets they can lend at one time. Opponents of the legislation, meanwhile, contend it would give credit unions

an unfair advantage over banks, by providing them the resources to enter the commercial lending market while enjoying a long-held federal tax-exempt status banks do not have. The credit union delegation traveled to Washington, D.C., last week to meet with Oregon congressional members — including U.S. Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., and U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Jeff Merkley, D-Ore. — and lobby for the legislation. The delegation’s hope, said Mid Oregon Credit Union CEO Bill Anderson, is to jump-start support for the Small Business Lending Enhancement Act. See Credit unions / B3

Real ‘Mad Men’ created Volvo’s image of safety By Stuart Schwartzapfel New York Times News Service

The fifth season of “Mad Men,” the acclaimed series that depicts the fiercely competitive world of Madison Avenue advertising in the 1960s, began Sunday night on the AMC cable channel. Of course, real-life Mad Men were throwing back highballs and wooing big clients long before the fictional adman Don Draper hooked TV audiences. Edward McCabe is a veteran of those wilder times. “We used to fly first-class to L.A. on American Airlines,” McCabe said in an interview in a Midtown New York hotel. “And then the first minute we got there we would run into James Mason or some other movie star, and we would end up drinking for two days before we got to the production. But we worked really hard, around the clock, in order to earn the right to act like such goof-offs.” From the 1960s to the late ’80s, McCabe created lasting brand images for clients like Perdue Farms and Hebrew National — and memorable campaigns for Volvo Cars of North America.

Foxconn pledges to reduce hours, increase wages By Charles Duhigg and Steven Greenhouse New York Times News Service

Responding to a critical investigation of its factories, the manufacturing giant Foxconn has pledged to sharply curtail working hours and significantly increase wages inside Chinese plants making electronic products for Apple and other companies. The move could improve working conditions across China. The shift comes after a far-ranging inspection by the Fair Labor Association, a monitoring group, found widespread problems — including numerous instances where Foxconn violated Chinese law and industry codes of conduct by having employees work more than 60 hours a week and sometimes for 11 or

more days in a row. The monitoring group, which in recent weeks surveyed more than 35,000 Foxconn employees and inspected three large facilities where Apple products are manufactured, also found that 43 percent of workers surveyed had experienced or witnessed accidents, and almost two-thirds said their compensation “does not meet their basic needs.” Many said that the unions available to them did “not provide true worker representation.” “There’s this lingering sense among workers that they’re in a dangerous place,” Auret van Heerden, president and chief executive of the Fair Labor Association, said in an interview.

Volvo Continued from B1 Volvo’s reputation for crash safety — a widely held identity, deftly transcending time and individual models — was solidified with a compelling statistic that Volvo used in its advertising for nearly two decades under McCabe’s direction: “Nine out of every 10 Volvos registered in the U.S. in the last 11 years are still on the road.” Nowhere in that simple statement is safety mentioned, yet, according to Volvo, modern buyers overwhelmingly identify safety features as their No. 1 purchase reason. Value and experience with the brand come in a distant second and third. “Our advertising was tough,” McCabe said. “It was not done with nuance; it was done with a stylish hammer in the face.”

The stuff Mad Men are made of An animated man whose confidence overshadows his physical stature, McCabe comes off as perhaps a decade younger than his 73 years. And while his colorful roughneck demeanor is far different from the polished Don Drapers of the world, he repeatedly proved his ability to romance big ideas and create powerful headlines — in short, he had the stuff that Mad Men are made of. McCabe was the youngest copywriter to be inducted into the prestigious One Club Creative Hall of Fame, alongside Madison Avenue stars like Bill Bernbach, David Ogilvy and Leo Burnett. He was also a co-founder of Scali McCabe Sloves, one of the more creative advertising agencies of the era. It was there that he helped to speed the rise of brands then gaining prominence. For Perdue, he developed the slogan “It Takes a Tough Man to Make a Tender Chicken,” a play on the appearance of Frank Perdue, the company’s leader. For Hebrew National, it was “We Answer to a Higher Authority,” a nod to the kosher certification of the brand’s frankfurters. And for Volvo, he created the headline “Fat Cars Die Young,” making a virtue of the car’s smaller size in an era

“Weak advertising tells people what you want them to know. Strong advertising gets people to conclude what you want them to know.” — Ed McCabe

of giant sedans. “With the exception of maybe VW, that era of automotive advertising was still very much in that glamorous, ‘Just tell people how pretty it is and don’t deal with substance’ phase,” said Bob Schmetterer, who had been hired by the Scali agency in 1971 as an account executive.

Competitive drive McCabe’s advertising career started in the mailroom at McCann Erickson. He quickly worked his way through the traffic and art departments, and later wrangled his way into a low-level copywriter position by doing someone else’s work. “I would go nosing around the office late at night and started noticing this copywriter who was always so behind in his work,” he said. “So I went to him and said, ‘Why don’t you give me the real garbage you don’t want to do? It will give me a chance to break in and do something.’ ” So for a year, McCabe was the ghost writer on various small assignments and trade ads. His first ad won an award. McCabe’s competitive drive impressed those who worked with him. “One of the things that Ed taught me was that you need to identify an enemy,” said Schmetterer. The men spent a lot of time together, researching obscure product claims like the average height of a Swede, which became a way to address the car’s roominess. “Ed would often say the enemy of Volvo is Detroit — that everything Detroit has stood for, meaning planned obsolescence and cars that aren’t very safe or well-built — are everything we’re not.” One of McCabe’s bestknown ads, “The Roads of America Are Strewn With

Volvo’s safety image was, in part, a byproduct of this approach. “It’s a common mistake to assume that Volvo’s advertising and marketing strategy had something to do with safety,” McCabe said. “In reality, it was the durability-reliability strategy. The basic idea is that a well-built, sturdy car was one that you could depend on day in and day out, thus also making the vehicle intrinsically safe.” Volvo’s advantage in creating a positive safety story served the brand well when government regulators began to push for crash testing, air bags and stability-control systems. “Safety was never mentioned in the early work,” Schmetterer said. “It really wasn’t until there was a beginning for a mandate in Washington that we did an overt call out to safety.” The headline: “It Shouldn’t Take an Act of Congress to Make Cars Safe.”

Foxconn Continued from B1 But Foxconn has “reached a tipping point. They have publicly promised to make changes in a manner that they will have to deliver on it.” Apple, which recently joined the Fair Labor Association, had asked the group to investigate plants manufacturing iPhones, iPads and other devices. In recent months, a growing outcry over conditions at overseas factories has prompted protests and petitions, and several labor rights organizations have started scrutinizing Apple’s suppliers. Earlier this week a collec-

The current cap means the credit union cannot lend more than about $18.3 million at one time. “It’s an arbitrary limit, and there’s a lot of demand for lending for small business capital,” Anderson said. “The primary driver of the economy is small business. If we can help small businesses, then by definition we’re making the local economy just that much stronger.” But organizations representing small banks contend that raising the cap could strike a potentially fatal blow to local banks and smaller financial institutions. “The lending cap was put on for a specific reason,” said Paul Merski, executive vice president and chief economist with the Independent Community Bankers of America. “That was to keep the credit unions out of commercial lending.” Credit unions have been exempt from paying corporate income taxes since the 1930s. The reason for their exemption, said Merski, is that credit unions are set up to offer loans for modest- and lowincome clients. Expanding the cap would

give credit unions much larger lending capacities while preserving their tax-exempt status. That, Merski said, would hurt banks. “Stick to your tax-exempt purpose, or join the competition,” he said. Still, Oregon’s federal delegates indicated they would be willing to at least give the legislation strong consideration. Tom Towslee, a Wyden spokesman, said Thursday that the senator would like to see the bill pass the Senate. Wyden was one of 21 senators to co-sponsor that bill when it was introduced. But Towslee added that there is no indication the bill will move out of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs in the immediate future. A spokesman for Walden also said it is uncertain just when Congress might vote on it. “The bill hasn’t come to the floor,” said Walden spokesman Andrew Whelan. “But certainly, if that bill should come to the floor, (Walden) would take a very close look at it.”

tion of advocacy groups sent Apple an open letter calling on the company to “ensure decent working conditions at all its suppliers.” Since January, Apple has released a list of 156 of its suppliers — which it had previously declined to identify — and has begun posting regular monitoring reports on hours worked by factory employees. Apple, which has regularly audited its suppliers since 2006, said in a statement Thursday, “We share the F.L.A.’s goal of improving lives and raising the bar for manufacturing companies everywhere.” Foxconn did not reveal how

much it would raise wages or details on how its promises would be put into place. But the impact of Foxconn’s hour and wage reforms could signal a wide-reaching change in working conditions throughout China. Foxconn makes more than 40 percent of the world’s electronics products — including for such brands as Amazon, Dell and HewlettPackard — and is China’s largest and most prominent private employer, with 1.2 million workers. In response to the report, Foxconn said, “We are committed to work with Apple to carry out the remediation program, developed by both our companies.”

Continued from B1 Current federal law limits the amount credit unions can lend to no more than 12.25 percent of their assets at one time. But that percentage would be raised to 27.5 percent if the lending enhancement act gets out of committee and passes votes from both chambers of Congress. Currently, the bills sit in committees in both chambers: as House Resolution 1418 in the House, and as Senate Bill 509 in the Senate. Both bills have been stalled in financial committees since mid-2011. Anderson said Thursday that the 12.25 percent cap is keeping the credit union from lending money to qualified Central Oregon business owners, who could take advantage of low interest rates to secure loans and hire more workers, or purchase new materials. Mid Oregon Credit Union has about $150 million in total assets, and it currently is lending about $16.8 million, according to Kyle Frick, vice president of marketing for the credit union.

Broken Promises,” showed a broken-down Detroit sedan that had been left under the George Washington Bridge. Its intent was to communicate the longevity and durability of Volvos. “The ad focused on a relevant and current phenomenon,” he said. “At the time, there were abandoned cars all over the road. People were just parking their cars and walking away.” “Weak advertising tells people what you want them to know,” he added. “Strong advertising gets people to conclude what you want them to know.” He continued: “I have a theory that comes from the smoking era. If you walk up to someone on the street and say, ‘Excuse me, sir,’ they are gone. But if you come right out and say, ‘Got a match?’ you get your match.” McCabe used those street smarts to figure out the consumer benefits that elevate product features to a more relevant level. Instead of focusing on features like multilayer anti-corrosion coatings, he would concentrate on longevity, telling consumers to “Beat the System, Buy a Volvo.”

Bank Continued from B1 “If they occurred on September 29 or occurred in the next 12 to 18 months, they were going to occur,� Zink said of the bulk sales. “(The thinking was,) let’s just get it behind us (and) lock in the reserve where we believe it needs to be and then move forward.� At the end of 2011, the company had $45.5 million in reserve to cover loan Zink losses, which is about 5 percent of all of its loans. That’s up about 1 percentage point over 2009 and 2010. The bank continues to operate under regulatory orders from the state and federal agencies, which prohibit it from paying dividends without approval, among other rules. The bank ended the year with more than enough capital necessary for regulators to consider it well-capitalized, according to company data. Zink said he hopes regulators will lift their restrictions on the parent company this year. “I don’t control that,� he said. “It’s hard to say that it’s going to happen. But we’re (making) every effort that we can to do that. The biggest thing was stabilizing (the) capital position, stabilizing the credit portfolio.� It’s also unclear whether the bank will turn a net profit in 2012. The local real estate market could figure in to the situation. Loans on properties in Central Oregon — worth about $378 million — comprise roughly 42 percent of the bank’s loan portfolio. The bank would benefit if Bend’s housing market were to stabilize, Zink said. “I know the Realtors I talk to are optimistic,� he said. The bank also could gain a foothold by making more loans. In February, Zink announced that the bank wants to lend $1 billion to businesses and individuals in Oregon and Idaho over the next three years. With a presidential election coming up, uncertainty clouds the future of the economy, and the changing nature of government regulations remains a source of concern, Zink said. Overall, though, Zink believes the year ahead could be a good one. “I do see changes in the economy, and I feel like we’re going to be a part of it and, well, grow as the markets that we serve grow,� he said. “I feel good there. It’s just the uncertainty of the times, and what could happen.� On Nasdaq, Cascade Bancorp closed at $5.80 on Thursday, up 3 cents from the day before. The stock hit a 52-week high of $12.58 in June, following news that it would be listed on an index of American stocks, the Russell 3000 Index. Cascade Bancorp will hold its annual shareholder meeting at 5:30 p.m. on May 8 at the Riverhouse Convention Center in Bend. — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

• ODOT grant will cover most of the cost of widening, repaving path through Prineville By Duffie Taylor The Bulletin

PRINEVILLE — Prineville’s only trail for pedestrians and cyclists is getting an upgrade. The city’s 35-year-old Ochoco Creek Trail is one of 25 non-highway projects that will receive federal money through the Oregon Department of Transportation’s flexible funds grant program. The ODOT program allocated a total of $23.6 million this year for bicycle, pedestrian or transit improvements in a host of cities, including

Prineville, Bend and Madras. The grant funds are paid for by the Federal Highway Administration Surface Transportation Program. ODOT started the flexible funds program in 2010 after legislators encouraged more funding for non-highway projects, according to the department’s website. Prineville Planning Director Scott Edelman said he is excited that the city’s worn and washed-out trail made the list. “We’re real pleased to get the grant,” Edelman said. “It’s

The fire was quickly extinguished, the release states, and damage to the house was minimal. Two juveniles contacted nearby were arrested and lodged at the Deschutes County Juvenile Detention Center. The juveniles face charges of first-degree arson, second-degree criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespassing.

a pretty important step for us.” The Ochoco Creek Trail weaves in an east-west direction over about a mile of the city, connecting schools, parks, neighborhoods and retail areas. But the dilapidated condi-

tion of the trail deters its widespread use, Edelman said. Potholes, gaping cracks and eroding gravel often create safety hazards for trail users. The ODOT grant will fund


$530,000 of the cost of the trail restoration, with the city paying the remainder of the $584,063 total cost. Edelman said the project will repave and expand the trail’s width to comply with state standards. It will also make the path safer and more accessible to users. A committee of volunteers established by the Crook County Health Department is also raising money to equip the trail with exercise equipment and benches, Edelman said. He hopes that trail construction can begin in fall or summer of 2013. — Reporter: 541-383-0376,

If the city of Bend starts a bike-sharing program, the move could benefit bike shops around town, according to at least one store’s owner. Details are scant, but the city is in the early stages of considering a program that would allow people to rent publicly owned bikes from kiosks across Bend. The Bend Metropolitan Planning Organization is looking into the possibility and projects that starting up a system — including fare kiosks and software — could cost up to $5,500 per bike. Insurance, storage and maintenance costs could tack on more. “The more people you have on bikes … they go, ‘Oh wow, biking is fun and I haven’t done it since I was a kid,’ ” said Sunnyside Sports coowner Mike Schindler. Successful bike-share programs in such places as Madison, Wis., allow people to borrow a bike by, for example, swiping a credit card or smart card at a kiosk. Portland is planning a bikeloan program, hoping to improve on the failed version it tried in the 1990s. See Bikes / C2

Event to get Latino families Bend meningococcal case involved in kids’ education not linked to those in Crook By Ben Botkin

By Ben Botkin The Bulletin

Deschutes County educators are making a regional effort to reach Latino parents and get them deeply involved in their children’s schools and education. To that end, they have planned an event called “Latino Parent Education Conference,” which is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 7, at Redmond High School, 675 S.W. Rimrock Way. The free event is open to Latino families — parents and students — from throughout

If you go Families can get free transportation to the event from Bend and Sisters. For transportation from Bend: 541-355-1038. For transportation from Sisters: 541-480-0189, or 541-549-4045, ext. 1035.

The recent meningococcal case involving a 5-year-old girl is Serogroup B, a strain that is different from what was found in the cases tied to the Crook County outbreak, Deschutes County Health Services said Thursday. Because the strain is different, there is no link between the Deschutes County case and the outbreak in Crook County, health officials said. The confirmation came following the results of Oregon Public Health Lab tests. County health officials were

not able to provide any information on the girl’s condition. She had been in critical condition at a Portland hospital. The Deschutes County case’s strain can be treated by an antibiotic, but it cannot

be prevented by a vaccine. Its strain, Serogroup B, is responsible for about half of the meningococcal cases in the state. By contrast, vaccines were dispensed to more than 2,000 Crook County residents following the county’s outbreak, which sickened six people between March 2011 and February. Those vaccines won’t prevent the strain found in the Deschutes County case. Health officials do not declare an outbreak unless three victims are infected with the same strain in a three-month period.

Infection Continued from C1 In the Crook County outbreak, five of the six victims had the same C serogroup. The one case in Deschutes County isn’t an outbreak, said Tom Kuhn, community health program manager for Deschutes County Health Services. By the numbers, Deschutes County is faring bet-

ter compared with last year. “What was going on in Crook County was very unusual,” Kuhn said. “At this time last year, we had two cases of meningococcal at this point.” By late April 2011, Deschutes County had four cases, though it wasn’t an outbreak because the strains were different, he said. Deschutes County Health Services has investigated the

recent case and prescribed preventive antibiotics to about 50 people who may have been exposed to protect them from getting infected or infecting others. Unlike the vaccine, the antibiotic will not protect against future exposures to meningococcal disease, Deschutes County Health Services said. Health officials say that people can reduce their risk by taking preventive

Bikes Continued from C1 In Bend, kiosks could be in places like downtown or the Old Mill District. Commuters could use the bikes to get to work from bus stations rather than waiting for a transfer. That kind of use wouldn’t compete with local bike rental outfits, according to Ken Strode, who owns Bend Bike Rental. His rentals, like Sunnyside’s, are often mountain or road bikes. Customers sometimes rent to test an expensive bike before buying such a model, Strode said. Bikes in sharing programs tend to be more utilitarian, he said, and having more bike commuters would ease congestion in areas like downtown, Strode said. “I think the overall benefit would benefit Bend versus taking away from businesses.” Joanie Krehbiel owns Wheel Fun Rentals in the Old Mill and, like other shop owners, believes there is promise in a bike-sharing program. People rarely rent Wheel Fun’s bikes to commute. Rather, they are taking friends around town. Also, she said, groups of families rent four-wheel cycles. Krehbiel pointed to program failures, like Portland’s, and said the city should use caution before launching. “I think the idea is good, but all the kinks have to get worked out or it’s bound for some sort of failure,” she said. — Reporter: 541-633-2161,

Mahonia Hall, the Oregon governor’s mansion in Salem, has elevated levels of radon gas in its basement, initial test results show.

Oregon governor’s mansion has elevated radon levels The Associated Press SALEM — The basement of the Oregon governor’s mansion has elevated levels of radon, a radioactive gas that the federal government blames for causing cancer, initial test results showed. Radon levels were measured over four days at the request of Cylvia Hayes, the companion of Gov. John Kitzhaber, the Salem Statesman Journal reported on Wednesday. Monitors detected 6.2 picocuries of radon per liter of air in the basement’s billiard room and 4.8 picocuries in a storage area. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends repairs if radon levels exceed 4 picocuries per liter. In the U.S., the odorless gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking, and is responsible for 21,000 lung-cancer deaths a year, according to the EPA. “I want to make sure my

home is safe,” Hayes said in a statement. “I also see this as an opportunity to highlight the importance for all Oregonians to check their homes for radon, and the only way to know if your home is safe from radon is to test.” Radon is released from the ground when uranium natu-

rally breaks down in rock, soil and water. The gas can enter homes through cracks and other holes in the building. Kitzhaber has maintained his house in Portland and the couple do not live full-time at the south Salem estate, known officially as Mahonia Hall, that has been the state’s official home for governors since 1988. Kitzhaber and Hayes spend about 40 percent of their time at the governor’s mansion, said Amy Wojcicki, a spokeswoman for Kitzhaber. The state has no records of previous radon testing at the governor’s mansion, said Amy Velez, a spokeswoman for the Department of Administrative Services, which oversees the home. State officials have not received the official results of the test performed by a Portland company, so it’s too soon to know the state’s next step, Velez said.

Man accused of killing roommate

Man found shot near I-205 in Portland

MEDFORD — A Southern Oregon man has been charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of his roommate. The Medford Mail Tribune reported that 26-yearold Dylan Ashmun was arrested after detectives got a report of the death Wednesday as a suicide but got conflicting stories from witnesses at the house in Eagle Point, north of Medford. The victim was identified as 24-year-old Joseph Faaeteete. He was found in the garage. Ashmun was held on bail of more than $1 million. He also faces a weapons charge The Oregon State Police said officers found weapons and drugs in the house.

PORTLAND — Portland police say it appears a man found wounded in a car along Interstate 205 in Portland wasn’t the victim of a sniper. The 29-year-old man hasn’t been identified. He was hospitalized in critical condition. The police are asking the public if anyone saw anything suspicious on I-205 where the man was found shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday. The vehicle is a 2007 blue four-door Chevrolet Cobalt. It was found on the right side of southbound I-205 near Division Street.

Suspected Rainier cop killer in court ST. HELENS — The man awaiting trial in the shooting death of the Rainier police chief was in court Wednesday in St. Helens for refusing treatment for a self-inflicted head wound. Lawyers for Daniel Butts of Kalama, Wash., asked a judge to address concerns over his medical situation. KGW reports Butts stabbed himself in the head in January in the Columbia County Jail and refused hospital treatment for the wound, which became infected. The judge set a timetable to address the issue. Butts has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder in the January 2011 shooting of Rainier Police Chief Ralph Painter, who had responded to a report of a suspicious person at a car stereo shop.

Teen pleads guilty in Eugene drive-by EUGENE — A teen accused of trying to shoot rival gang members in a drive-by shooting in Eugene pleaded guilty Wednesday to a felony charge of unlawful use of a weapon. In return for the guilty plea, prosecutors dropped attempted murder charges against 18-year-old Daniel Sotelo-Rodriguez of Cottage Grove. The Register-Guard reports that he is expected to be sentenced today to less than three years in prison. Police say the shooting was averted last September when the teen’s handgun malfunctioned.

Post office stabber sent for mental care

The Oregonian reports the 48-year-old could be released from the hospital to a group home before 10 years is up. The state Psychiatric Security Review Board would still have supervision. Reagh had followed a woman into the post office where she asked for help. He stabbed a clerk who tried to get him to leave.

Wrong-way driver forces cars off U.S. 97 PORTLAND — Oregon State Police say more than a dozen vehicles were forced to swerve onto the shoulder of U.S. Highway 97 to avoid a motor home being driven the wrong direction by an 83-year-old Yuma, Ariz., man with an apparent medical condition. No crashes were reported Wednesday in the 20-minute drama. Sgt. Dan Swift says the first reports of the northbound motor home in the southbound lane came about 13 miles north of Klamath Falls in Southern Oregon. Swift says a state trooper followed the driver with emergency lights and siren on for about six miles before the driver noticed the trooper and stopped. Medics took the driver to a Klamath Falls hospital for treatment of a possible stroke. — From wire reports

Short on meat, food bank uses lentils The Associated Press EUGENE — The food bank in Eugene says it’s facing a shortage of protein brought on by rising Asian demand for meat and domestic animal production squeezed by high feed costs. The solution? Local lentils. Food For Lane County has contracted with five farmers to enlarge the stock of highprotein lentils and barley soup mix it developed this year. Grass seed farmer Tom Hunton has experimented with beans before and said he is enthusiastic about creating a consistent protein source for needy people in the area. “It looks like it should be a viable new crop for them, and

it’s the community feeding its own community,” Hunton said. “When you’re a seed or grain grower, you ship it overseas and you don’t get to see the fruits of your labor as up close and personal as this will be.” Demand in the county is up 46 percent from prerecession levels, and Food For Lane County expects to distribute a record-breaking 8 million pounds of food in the fiscal year ending in June, the Eugene Register-Guard reported. The Oregon Food Bank Network, which is facing the same protein challenges, heard about the project and placed a 240,000-pound order of lentil and barley mix. It’s enough to fill three

semitrailers. The crops will be planted in April, and the harvest will come in August or September. Volunteers at the Food for Lane County night kitchen will scoop the lentils and barley and insert spice and recipe cards, while the food bank gathers slow cookers to present pots of soup at most of the pantries that it supplies. “We want to bring it into the pantries demonstrationstyle, Costco style,” said the agency’s executive director, Beverlee Hughes, “so that people can taste it, they know how good it is, they like it, their kids like it — and then they’ll be more willing to take it home and prepare it.”

Vote for Segers on May ticket


oyce Segers is the better candidate on the May ballot of the two Democrats hoping to face Republican Congressman Greg Walden in November.

Segers is the former owner of a medical billing company. She owned that business in Florida for about 19 years. You may remember she challenged Walden before, in 2010, capturing about 26 percent of the vote. Philosophically, Segers is faithful to the core principles of the Democratic Party. She is focusing her campaign on her desire to see a moratorium on foreclosures, require wealthier people to pay a “fair share� of taxes, implement tighter limits on campaign spending and direct more focus from Congress on improving public education. At this point in the campaign, she did not provide many specific details beyond broad themes. For instance, she had problems with the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court, which basically says that corporations and unions have powerful rights in making campaign contributions. Segers said she has trouble accepting that a corporation has the same free speech rights as a living,

breathing person. She wants more limits on contributions, though she did not specify a specific limit. Her opponent, John Sweeney, does not live in the 2nd Congressional district, and some of his concerns are not on this planet. He said he would move to land he owns in Sisters if he won. He has run for office before, including challenging Rep. Earl Blumenauer in 2006 and 2008. Sweeney, a land management consultant, was most specific about his desire to see the Social Security retirement age lowered to 60. He also has serious concerns about asteroids hitting the earth. He wants to align missile defenses to break them up. And he suggested it would be a good idea to put up an engine in space to keep the moon in a predictable orbit around the earth. He was not kidding. If those are important priorities for you, Sweeney is your man. Most Democrats will rightly be much more comfortable casting a vote for Segers.

Dear John: Please stay out of this fight


hinking over the last few years, it’s difficult to find a business hoping to set up shop in Cascade Locks that’s met the approval of environmental groups in Oregon and elsewhere. A move by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs to set up a casino in the community has been effectively stymied, and now groups from Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility to Food & Water Watch are hoping to pressure Gov. John Kitzhaber into finding a way to stop a NestlÊ-owned water bottling plant from locating there. NestlÊ, which owns NestlÊ Waters, hopes to build a bottling facility in the 1,100-person city located between Troutdale and Hood River on the Columbia River. The plant would employ 50 people, no small number in a community that size, and would double the city’s property tax base. To do all that, a couple of things must happen. The state Water Resources Board must approve permits that will allow the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and the city of Cascade Locks to exchange water. Two of the three permits have been approved so far. Then, ODFW must agree to

the deal, which would see the city pumping well water to a nearby salmon hatchery in exchange for a fraction of the spring water the hatchery now uses. ODFW officials have said the exchange would actually give the hatchery more water in the summer, when the spring is at its lowest point. The complaints about the proposal are all over the block. Food & Water Watch has made it a mission to thwart NestlÊ’s efforts to bottle water all over the United States, in part because it doesn’t want anyone bottling water. Others complain that the company is multinational. Still others worry that if water runs short, both the salmon hatchery and the city will pay the price. That latter concern is the most legitimate, but surely the city and the state are capable of hiring lawyers to draw up documents assuring that doesn’t happen. Meanwhile, the governor, who so far has kept his distance from the fight, should continue to do so. Cascade Locks is a community in danger of fading away for lack of jobs and tax revenues, and the bottling plant would go a long way toward solving both problems.

My Nickel’s Worth Voting based on reality

Trapper speaks out

So, you don’t like the price of gas. You blame President Obama and think a different president will lower the cost of filling your tank. Think again. Energy experts agree that the U.S. president has no legitimate impact on gas prices. Even TV pundits such as Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, who currently blame the president for the price of gas, publicly declared during President George W. Bush’s eight-year reign (when the price of gas witnessed the steepest incline in history) that policies of the U.S. president had no impact on prices at the pump. It’s true. While Bush’s pointless war in Iraq did not help matters, it was a mere blip on the screen of the larger picture. When you go to the polls in November, try voting based on reality instead of fear-based imaginations. 1) U.S. domestic oil production was in ongoing and steady decline from the mid-1980s until President Obama took office. Since he took office, domestic oil production has been in ongoing and steady incline. 2) The Affordable Care Act has created none of the catastrophes forecast by pundits and Sen. Mitch McConnell, Republican minority leader. Instead, it has created many benefits to American families. 3) Whether or not you agree that the “bank bailouts,� or TARP, were a necessary evil, the truth is (and all pundits know this) TARP was developed by George W. Bush (not President Obama) and enacted by Congress. No incoming president would have attempted to repeal this act of Congress. Brad Smith Bend

I have read all the opinions and articles written lately in support of banning trapping in Oregon. I don’t have a dog in this fight (pardon the pun), but I have been a licensed trapper in Oregon. One writer expressed an opinion that “we have no way of knowing how many dogs and cats have died at the hands of trappers.� Well, that any dog or cat would die in a trap just reveals an irresponsible pet owner who lets his pet run feral. I don’t understand the morality of people anymore. How did pets become more cherished than children? How can we be outraged with just the possibility of a pet getting caught in a trap, but readily kill unborn babies without batting an eye? It has been said that trapping is outdated and from the “past.� So are sailing ships, sternwheelers and Fort Astoria (a trapping fort), yet people visit them each year by the millions. We support animal rights groups like PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), which, from 1998, has euthanized more than 27,000 adoptable pets, and most people don’t know it. Your dogs must be smarter than mine! I don’t think my dog could recognize a warning sign of “traps in the area� or a flag marking a trap. Due to the economy, the ODFW states that there are a lot of novice trappers now. They’re trying to keep their families in food. They will probably need a learning curve. Cut them a break! Cliff Cornett La Pine

Tragedy should give nation pause The recent mass killing by an Army staff sergeant in Afghanistan on his fourth tour of combat duty is a tragedy. It seriously complicates our 10-year effort, is unspeakable for Afghan families, horrendous for this soldier and family, and a deep scar upon our nation. I was a Naval medical officer with the Marines in Vietnam. I know from personal experience the stress of war from even one tour. I cannot imagine the strain we have placed upon our military in the past decade with multiple tours. We willingly place these heavy burdens upon so few. Most of us, since 9/11, have carried on as usual — no increased taxes, no draft, no interruption to our normal lives; fine to let those volunteers and families bear repeated sacrifice. Sadly, we don’t provide adequate support when they return broken in spirit and body. I am appalled when I hear leaders calling for new, immediate military actions overseas, even as our military is stretched to the limit. How much more can we ask of these brave men and women? Are these same leaders willing to send their own children, grandchildren or even go themselves? Are we, ourselves, willing to serve, to let those who have already done so much come home to the rest and relief they so greatly need? As terrible as this tragedy is, I hope it gives our nation pause. Ten years of constant war takes its toll on individuals, families and our nation. I weep for all involved. Ronald E. Carver Bend

Nonprofit helps Latinos meet education challenges T

he Bend, Ore., I grew up in was the white-bread capital of the world, I’m sure, a place where the joke used to be that ethnicity was a question of being Swedish or Norwegian. That’s changed over the years — thank goodness — and today about 8 percent of the city’s residents are Latino, the largest minority group in the area. Like all groups, Latinos are a diverse lot, impossible to define in a few words. Yet numbers do tell an unsettling tale. It’s a group with challenges all its own, not the least being language barriers for many of its members. Talk with Latino families and you discover education is important, but look at statistics and you find one of the highest group dropout rates in the state. There is no doubt a variety of reasons for that, and one of those reasons surely is money and the idea that anything beyond high school is out of reach. For too many Latino families, post-secondary education

is more an expensive dream than a possible reality. That’s changing. This year Central Oregon’s Latino Partnership Project will award four $2,500 scholarships, acting as the Central Oregon Latino Scholarship fund. Each one is renewable if certain conditions are met. Though the mechanics of accepting applicants and granting scholarships will be handled by the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, a Portland-based nonprofit, this year, that will change once the Central Oregon fund achieves 501(c)(3) status later this year, making gifts to it directly tax-deductible. In the future they’ll be screened and awarded by the local group. The Latino Partnership Project is relatively new to the area, part of an effort by the Oregon Community Foundation to reach out to underserved populations in the state, says Susan Schneider, a charitable gift


planner for the organization. The Bend group, offspring of a similarly named group in the Willamette Valley, was formed in 2007. Though young, it’s already had an impact, granting some $200,000 to migrant education projects in both secondary and post-high school education in the area. Its next event comes Saturday, April 7, when it will put on a Latino parent education program at Redmond High School. The program is designed to help parents navigate not only the school system for their children, but others, as well, including the medical system. It also has given a luncheon in each of the last three years at which Latino community standouts are honored and high school students who mentor

younger students are awarded $100 scholarships. But back to those college scholarships. OCF and LPP have managed to take a relatively small gift and turn it into something truly wonderful. It all began with a $5,000 anonymous donation, Schneider says, solicited after it became clear that lack of access to college is a real problem for the Latino community. That initial gift was matched by the Hispanic Metro Chamber, bringing the total to $10,000. HMCC did something else, as well. It got agreements from 11 of the state’s public and private universities to match the money again. And, finally, a second anonymous donor has stepped up with $5,000, helping to grow the original gift to $20,000 to be awarded over two years. Just as important as the money, it seems to me, is the way the group hopes to distribute it. These scholarships will not be aimed, as so many

are, at only the best and brightest of this year’s crop of graduating Latino high school seniors. Older people are welcome to apply, and, Schneider says, the group has worked to make the scholarships accessible to a broad range of would-be college students. That’s no doubt in part because so many members of the committee creating the program themselves faced interruptions in their college educations. Meanwhile the statewide Latino Partnership Project hopes to create a $5 million statewide scholarship fund, which the Central Oregon group is working to expand locally so that extra money will be available to local families. Its first public fundraiser to that end will be held May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) at the Old Mill District, a two-part affair, with daytime activities aimed at families and an evening event geared more to adults. — Janet Stevens is deputy editor of The Bulletin.

PORTLAND — The federal government has denied assistance to owners of hundreds of private homes damaged in a fierce January storm, many of whom lacked flood insurance. The damage failed to meet the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s criteria for disaster dollars. “It’s a very difficult time for a lot of people affected by the floods,� said Oregon Emergency Management spokeswoman Jennifer Chamberlain. Disaster assistance can prove to be a cruel calculus — without sufficient damage, homeowners can’t expect to see assistance dollars. “I hate to say it, but if we’d had more homes destroyed, we might have gotten this assistance,� Chamberlain said. The flooding was blamed for two deaths when a car was swept out of a grocery store parking lot in Albany. FEMA made aid available to a dozen counties: Benton, Columbia, Coos, Curry, Douglas, Hood River, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, Polk and Tillamook. Most of the damage took place in Marion County, especially in the city of Turner. Mayor Paul Thomas said homeowners could have used the assistance, but the city was prepared for the denial. “I think we knew there wasn’t much chance the appeal would change things,�

Homeowner Joanne Mueller holds a trash bag on Jan. 20 as she empties her bedroom damaged by floodwaters from Mill Creek, in Turner. A day earlier, homeowners in low areas near creeks frantically filled sandbags to keep muddy water out of their homes as a number of rivers reached major flood stage.

Thomas said. “We’re disappointed, but we’ll just keep on trucking.� The state will seek disaster-recovery dollars from another source, though Chamberlain said she’s unsure where the dollars will come from. Among the possibilities are the Small Business Administration and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. FEMA is already covering 75 percent of the cost of repairs and of emergency

expenses for roads, bridges and other infrastructure damaged by the mid-January storm. The agency did not specify in a letter to Gov. John Kitzhaber why it was denying the assistance after an appeal he made last week. Its decision is based on a formula that includes the population in Oregon and the affected counties, the percent of people insured versus the uninsured and the level of damage.

It also includes the economic impact to the state, “which we thought was going to put us over the top,� Chamberlain said. Thomas said the city has managed to raise money to help homeowners whose homes were damaged. “I think we’ve helped people who were the worst-hit quite a bit,� Thomas said. “We’ve been through this before. It’s just what you do when part of your town is in a flood zone.�

Allen: Blazers are not for sale PORTLAND — Billionaire Paul Allen is emphatically refuting reports that he is entertaining offers for the Portland Trail Blazers. Allen went to Twitter on Thursday to rebut the report, which appeared in a blog post on Comcast SportsNet Northwest’s website. CSNNW broadcasts Trail Blazers games. “It is absolutely false that I have entertained offers for (the Trail Blazers). Unnamed sources are wrong as usual,” Allen tweeted. David Postman, a spokesman for Allen, also disputed the blog post. There have been rumors swirling in recent months that the Microsoft co-founder is positioning the team for sale. — The Associated Press


From wire reports WINTER PARK, Colo. — Bend’s Tommy Ford has a knack for shining on sun-baked snow. Ford used a strong second run on a soft course to capture the slalom title at the U.S. championships Thursday. Ford, who was third after the opening pass, finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 32.20 seconds, holding off Leif Kristian Haugen of Norway by 0.01 seconds. Michael Ankeny was third. “U.S. championships have always been good to me,” Ford said, according to the U.S. Ski Team website. “I ski well in these types of conditions. The weather is great, it’s like spring break. I’m looking forward to skiing

Happy trails • Options abound for runners who want off-road opportunities in Central Oregon


ean Meissner speaks with an excited edge to his voice when he talks trails. Not so much when he talks roads. “If I get on a road and I can see forever, that kind of sucks,” Meissner says. “Time goes by much faster on a trail than on a road.” For that reason, and because vast networks of trails are located so close to our towns, fitness-minded Central Oregon has become a mecca for trail running. The benefits of running on trails — dirt or other unpaved surfaces — instead of roads seem obvious: no motor vehicle traffic, more scenery, and a more dynamic workout. And those who run more on trails might

Baylor coach has Bell’s palsy WACO, Texas — Kim Mulkey’s voice echoed loudly from the court as the fiery Baylor coach shouted instructions and encouragement to her players during their final on-campus practice before leaving for the NCAA Final Four. Mulkey had promised to make no changes in how she will coach the undefeated Lady Bears this week, even after learning that she has Bell’s palsy, a form of facial paralysis. And she showed it on Thursday, with her voice clearly audible from practice nearby as the team prepares for Sunday night’s semifinal showdown with Stanford. “When I smile it’s crooked and when I talk, and talk loud, the hollowness in my hearing is weird,” Mulkey said. “But it’s not going to keep me from hollering.” Mulkey disclosed the diagnosis before practice, unveiling and then discussing a potential distraction for the team. She said she first noticed a strange feeling in her tongue while in Des Moines for the NCAA regional last weekend before symptoms became worse Wednesday. The Lady Bears are two wins away from their second national championship under Mulkey and the NCAA’s first 40-win season.

super G tomorrow and then some giant slalom, but I’m also looking forward to being done for the season.” Lately, the national championships have become Ford’s personal stage. He has now captured seven U.S. titles. “It’s always fun to win,” said Ford. “I haven’t skied much slalom this year. This feels good.” Three-time World Cup giant slalom champion Ted Ligety was one of the favorites entering the slalom event, but he went wide on a turn in his first run and was out of the race. This was the last competition for Jimmy Cochran, who plans to retire after nearly a decade with the U.S. ski team. Leading after the first run, Cochran hooked a tip on a gate and didn’t finish.

MARK MORICAL be able to run later into their lives because the softer nature of most trails is easier on the joints than hard surfaces such as asphalt and concrete. According to an article titled “Long-term Effects of Running on the Joints” on the website www. “Each surface provides a much different running experience and affects the joints differently. Pavement and concrete are the least desirable surfaces because

they are so hard and can amplify the pounding that leads to injury, especially long-term.” Meissner, 38, says the difference between running on a trail and running on a road is “self-evident.” “You can physically feel it,” he says. “It’s softer (on trails), more forgiving and friendly.” An accomplished endurance runner who says he runs about 70 miles per week, Meissner is the race organizer for the Peterson Ridge Rumble, an annual trail-running event staged near Sisters that includes races of 20 and 40 miles on the Peterson Ridge trail network. This year’s Rumble is scheduled for April 15. See Trails / D4

Bend High knocks off Madras in nonleague play Bulletin staff report MADRAS — Danny Davis pitched six strong innings and Jonah Koski went three for four with a double to lead Bend High past Madras 12-1 on Thursday in nonleague baseball action. Braving fierce winds, Davis struck out three and walked two while scattering five hits before Dalton Hurd closed out the game in the seventh

inning. The Lava Bears (2-2 overall), who led 2-1 after one inning, opened the game up in the second with a fiverun at-bat. White Buffalo starter Andrew McConnell pitched five innings and took the loss. “It was pretty crazy,” Bend High coach Bret Bailey said about the weather. “Anything hit in the air was an out with the wind.” Three of the Lava Bears’ 11 hits

went for extra bases as Cadis Chase and Kyle Bailey also recorded doubles. Madras (3-4) ended the game with five hits, all singles. Bend High also played Dallas at Madras High on Thursday, a nonleague game in which the Dragons topped the Lava Bears 3-2. Koski again led Bend at the plate, going two for three, but the Bears only

managed six hits against Dallas, all singles. With the game tied 2-2 after six innings, the Dragons (4-1 overall) scored in the top of the seventh before holding off Bend in its final at-bat to preserve the victory. “They executed better offensively,” Bret Bailey said. “We had people in scoring position, but we couldn’t get it done.” See Baseball / D4

Amy Yang takes lead at Kraft Nabisco

Basketball • Three UNC players headed to NBA: North Carolina’s underclassmen decided they wouldn’t put off their goal of playing in the NBA any longer. The school said Thursday that Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall will enter the draft, ending a two-year run in which the Tar Heels made deep NCAA tournament runs, only to fall a game short of the Final Four each time. The school didn’t state whether the three planned to hire agents in its release announcing the departures, though it appears they are in the draft to stay. The Tar Heels (32-6) were the preseason No. 1 and won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship for a second straight year, but they fell in the NCAA regional final again amid a dizzying run of injuries — including wrist injuries to both Henson and Marshall. • Stanford wins NIT: Stanford’s young guards Chasson Randle and Aaron Bright each scored 15 points, and the Cardinal routed Minnesota 75-51 to win the National Invitation Tournament Thursday night in New York City. Stanford forced two turnovers to open the second half to take a 10-point lead and stayed up by double figures the rest of the way. The Golden Gophers turned it over 22 times on the night. The third-seeded Cardinal (26-11) won their second NIT title, the first coming in 1991. • Kansas’ Manning to coach Tulsa: Danny Manning’s last game as a player at Kansas ended with a national title. He hopes his last game as an assistant coach for the Jayhawks does, too. Manning has agreed to become the head coach of Tulsa, joining Barry Hinson as the second assistant from coach Bill Self’s staff to announce their departure during the week of the Final Four. Both coaches will assume their new duties after Kansas is done in New Orleans. The Jayhawks play Ohio State in the national semifinals Saturday night. Hinson took the job at Southern Illinois.

Hockey • Canadiens axe general manager: The Montreal Canadiens fired general manager Pierre Gauthier after a dismal season and split with Montreal great Bob Gainey on Thursday, insisting such play will not be tolerated by a franchise long part of hockey history. A string of moves by Gauthier failed to revive Montreal, which has been hit by injuries and is 29-34-14, last in the Eastern Conference. Gainey, who Gauthier succeeded as GM, is leaving his role as team adviser.

Tennis • Sharapova edges Wozniacki in semi: Maria Sharapova was confused and Caroline Wozniacki was mad. The linesman was wrong and the chair umpire was right. Sharapova won the disputed final point after an overrule by the umpire, edging Wozniacki 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 Thursday in the semifinals at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla. “Obviously you don’t want it to end that way,” said Sharapova, who will meet Agnieszka Radwanska in Saturday’s final. At 40-30 in the last game, Sharapova hit a second serve that the linesman called long, which would have been a double-fault, but umpire Kader Nouni immediately reversed the ruling and ordered the point replayed. The call couldn’t be reviewed because Wozniacki had no challenges left, although TV replays showed Nouni was correct to overrule. Sharapova was awarded two serves and took advantage with a big first serve to set up an overhead slam for the victory. Top-ranked Novak Djokovic advanced to the men’s semifinals without argument, beating No. 5 David Ferrer 6-2, 7-6 (1). No. 21 Juan Monaco defeated No. 8 Mardy Fish 6-1, 6-3.

New Orleans Hornets guard Marco Belinelli, right, drives on Portland Trail Blazers forward Nicolas Batum during the first quarter of Thursday night’s game in Portland.

Blazers top Hornets The Associated Press PORTLAND — The grind of the season is wearing on LaMarcus Aldridge, although not enough to keep him off the court. Aldridge had an MRI on his sore right hip hours before he had 25 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in the Trail Blazers’ 99-93 victory over the shorthanded New Orleans Hornets on Thursday night. “It’s something that has come with the short season and playing hard and getting knocked down out there,” Portland’s All-Star forward said. “I’m just playing through it.” The MRI did not reveal any damage, and Aldridge suspects he just needs rest for it to feel better. The Blazers, meanwhile, are still hoping to make the playoffs even though the odds are against them. “We’ve just got to do this every night,” Aldridge said. “I feel like some nights we have it. Other nights, we don’t.” Wesley Matthews added 18 points and Luke Babbitt had a career-high 16 points, including four three-pointers, for Portland, 24-27 overall and 44 since the dismissal of head coach Nate McMillan. Marco Belinelli had 27 points and Carl Landry had 24 for the Hornets (13-38), who sit in last place in the Western Conference. New Orleans had just eight players available for the game. Landry’s dunk with 4:09 left tied it at 89, Aldridge’s fade-

away jumper put Portland back in front, and Raymond Felton and Nicolas Batum hit back-to-back three-pointers to make it 97-90 with 58.9 seconds left. “My guys fought and that’s all you can ask. We’ve got eight guys going up against a talented team and it goes down to the wire, there’s not much you can say about your team,” Hornets coach Monty Williams said. “We had a chance to win and just didn’t pull it out when we needed it.” Former Blazers guard Jarrett Jack was a late scratch with a sprained right ankle. He joined center Chris Kaman, out with the flu, forward Trevor Ariza, who has missed three games with a sore right ankle, backup power forward Gustavo Ayon, away from the team for the birth of a child, and Emeka Okafor, who has a sore left knee. The Blazers were without reserve guard Nolan Smith, who has a left ear infection. But Portland saw the return of starting guard Raymond Felton, who missed a game to be with his mother for a heart procedure. New Orleans went on a 132 run in the second quarter to take a 42-35 lead, and the Hornets led 54-51 at the break. Batum’s three-pointer tied it a 61-all, and Felton’s layup midway through the third quarter put Portland in front. The Blazers finished the quarter on a 9-0 run to go up 76-70 and it looked as though New

• Strange results for Phelps, Lochte at meet: Michael Phelps won the 100 butterfly Thursday night at the Indianapolis Grand Prix after finishing second in the 100 freestyle. It was a strange night session at the IUPUI Natatorium. Ryan Lochte, Phelps’ biggest rival, failed to qualify for the final heat for both of his events — the 100 free and the 100 fly. Lochte won both consolation heats with a season-best 49.46 seconds in the 100 free and a career-best 52.32 in the 100 fly. And despite splitting his trunks at the start of the 100 free, Nathan Adrian still held off the hard-charging Phelps. Adrian finished in 48.62. Phelps was next at 48.74. Dana Vollmer dominated the women’s events, winning both the 100 free and 100 fly.

Football • Montana cuts ties with coach, AD: The University of Montana fired football coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O’Day on Thursday, adding more uncertainty to a program already dealing with sexual assault allegations against two players. “The University of Montana has determined not to renew the contracts of Athletics Director Jim O’Day and head football coach Robin Pflugrad,” university President Royce Engstrom said in a statement. O’Day and Engstrom addressed staff and coaches in separate meetings Thursday morning, but neither gave a reason for the firings, said Greg Sundberg, the Montana Grizzly Scholarship Association executive director, who attended the meetings.

Figure skating • Virtue-Moir win ice dance at worlds: Olympic ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada won the world figure skating title Thursday in Nice, France, reversing last year’s result by beating defending champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the U.S. Virtue and Moir, who captured the worlds and Olympic crown two years ago, took the free dance after finishing first in Wednesday’s short dance. Earlier, Alena Leonova of Russia nailed all her jumps to win the women’s short program ahead of Japanese teenager Kanako Murakami and European champion Carolina Kostner of Italy. — From wire reports

Orleans was fading. Babbitt’s three-pointer extended Portland’s lead to 81-70. But the Hornets came back with an 11-2 run, capped by Landry’s layup to get within 83-81 with 6:19 left. After J.J. Hickson’s dunk for Portland, Belinelli made a three-pointer. Hickson’s layup kept Portland ahead, but Belinelli made another three to tie it at 87 with 4:51 to go.

The Associated Press RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — An openinground 67 at the Kraft Nabisco Championship is just a bonus to Lindsey Wright. After fighting her way back from depression and anxiety to rejoin the LPGA Tour, she’s grateful for every good day on the links and every peaceful night away from golf. Wright began the first major of the year one stroke behind leader Amy Yang, who shot a 6under 66 on Thursday. Wright even outplayed top-ranked Yani Tseng, whose 68 ended her streak of eight consecutive rounds with a lead. With five birdies on the back nine of the Dinah Shore Tournament Course, Wright took another positive step in her revitalization. After quitting golf for the final four months of last year, the 32-year-old Australian returned with a victory in the New Zealand Women’s Open last month, followed by this strong start at Mission Hills. “I’m really enjoying my golf,” Wright said. “It’s not a grind anymore. I’m actually enjoying it, the good and the bad.” Wright, a Pepperdine graduate who lives in Florida, has earned more than $2.2 million despite never winning an LPGA Tour event. She was outstanding in 2009, earning top-four finishes in two majors, but success didn’t provide the happiness she expected. Wright said she felt “smothered” by the nonstop travel and pressure of a pro golfer’s life. She sometimes needed two bottles of red wine to cure her chronic insomnia, and her homesickness for Australia was accentuated by her depression, which she didn’t identify until she recognized her symptoms on a television program about the disease. “It wasn’t a great time, and I just couldn’t really get through it,” Wright said. “It’s hard to explain other than from a physical standpoint. People think, ‘Depression, oh, just get over it.’ It really impacts you physically, and playing on this tour, grinding it out each week when you’re not sleeping and you can’t concentrate or focus, it just gets you down, and it’s a bit of a nightmare.” For at least one round, Wright even played better than Tseng, the five-time major champion who has won two straight tournaments and three of five this season. Yang and Wright have never won on the LPGA Tour. The 22-year-old Yang made five birdies in seven holes around the turn at Mission Hills, using a steady putting stroke to take the early lead. Yang chipped in from the fringe for birdie on the 13th, highlighting a strong start at Mission Hills for the former teen sensation. Yang has five top-10 finishes in majors over the previous three years after winning on the European tour, but the table tennis enthusiast who idolizes fellow Korean pro Se Ri Pak hasn’t broken through to hold an LPGA Tour trophy. “Everything was working well,” Yang said. “I think especially my putting was better than other tournaments. I had a couple of shots that went into the trees, and it was hard to play, but I had some good par saves and good birdie putts.” Tseng acknowledged being tired during practice rounds this week after driving from San Diego to Palm Springs following her victory in the Kia Classic in Carlsbad last Sunday. She bogeyed the eighth hole with a feeble chip out of the greenside rough, but the Taiwanese star gathered herself for four birdies in the next six holes. “I was really disappointed today,” Tseng said. “I don’t hit many good shots, and I don’t leave myself lots of birdie chances out there.” Wearing oversized sunglasses even while putting, Michelle Wie opened with a 73. Defending champion Stacy Lewis had four consecutive bogeys in a 74. Also on Thursday: Cabrera, Pettersson shoot 65s HUMBLE, Texas — Angel Cabrera and Carl Pettersson shot 7-under 65 in calm morning conditions to top the Houston Open leaderboard before first-round play was suspended because of a thunderstorm. Only 51 players completed play before the horn sounded at 1:27 p.m. Tournament director Steve Timms said the storm dumped about 1 1⁄4 inches of rain, leaving shallow ponds on many of the fairways. Ricky Barnes and Jeff Maggert completed their rounds in the morning and were one shot off the lead. Brian Harman also was 6 under, but had three holes left. Defending champion Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples and Ernie Els, who needs a victory to qualify for the Masters next week, were playing their front nines when play was suspended. Lawrie leads Sicilian Open SCIACCA, Sicily — Ireland’s Peter Lawrie shot an 8-under 64 at Verdura Golf and Spa Resort to take a one-stroke lead after the first round of the Sicilian Open. Wales’ Jamie Donaldson, Denmark’s Soren Kjeldsen and Argentina’s Tano Goya were tied for second.

Islanders beat Pens again, sweep home and home The Associated Press UNIONDALE, N.Y. — Sidney Crosby left briefly in the second period after being bloodied when he was struck in the face with the puck, and the suddenly slumping Pittsburgh Penguins fell again to the New York Islanders, 5-3 on Thursday night. Crosby, playing in the ninth game of his second comeback of the season after recovering from concussion symptoms, was injured 1:43 into the second period. Islanders defenseman Dylan Reese was trying to clear the puck out of the lower left corner in the New York end when he hit Crosby, who was standing a few feet away. Crosby stayed down on his stomach for about a minute before gathering himself and getting back up on his skates. He then skated off toward the tunnel leading to the dressing room. He returned to the bench with 10:13 left in the period, and was back on the ice moments later. The Islanders, who began the night in 13th place in the 15-team Eastern Conference, dealt Pittsburgh another big blow as the Penguins try to catch the New York Rangers atop the East. The Islanders knocked off the Penguins in Pittsburgh 5-3 on Tuesday night and completed the home-and-home sweep Thursday. Josh Bailey had two goals and three assists for New York, Kyle Okposo also scored twice, and Marty Reasoner added a goal. Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal and Pascal Dupuis scored for

American Hardee hoping elbow ready for Olympics By Jim Vertuno The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — As the reigning world champion in the decathlon, Trey Hardee should figure as the big favorite at the London Olympics. He would be if not for a pinkish, 5-inch scar that curves around his right elbow. Hardee had reconstructive surgery last September to repair a ligament he blew out while throwing the javelin at the world championships last summer. The injury occurred on his final throw, a personal best that locked up his second straight world decathlon title. Now Hardee is pushing the elbow through an accelerated rehabilitation process aimed at competing in the U.S. Olympic trials in June. He insists he’ll be ready for the trials, and for London. “At this point, (I) feel as good as I’ve ever felt,” Hardee told The Associated Press during an interview Wednesday at the Texas Relays. “The confidence grows every week. It’s as strong as it’s ever going to get and now we just have to train it and take baby steps in the pole vault and the javelin to get it ready to compete.” Hardee, who trains in Austin, is entered in the long jump, discus and hurdles at the Texas Relays, the meet where he set the NCAA re-

Baseball Continued from D1 Hurd started the late game and left the mound after the fourth inning with a 2-1 lead. Anthony Martorano, who pitched the final three innings for the Bears, took the loss. Dallas reliever Tyler Dankenbring earned the victory, pitching two shutout innings. In the day’s final game at Madras High, the White Buffaloes rebounded to defeat Dallas 4-3. Andrew Fine earned

cord in the decathlon for the University of Texas in 2006. He won’t do a complete decathlon until the Olympic trials. Hardee and his personal coach, University of Texas associate head coach Mario Sategna, say they are trying to cut the usual 12-month recovery period down to nine. They have no choice. Misfire at the Olympic trials, and Hardee won’t go to London. “We’re pushing it daily. … We’re not trying to test it every day, but we’re trying to loosen it up,” he said. “If I’m healthy and can pole vault and throw the javelin at 100 percent, I definitely consider myself the (Olympic) favorite because I haven’t lost a decathlon in so long.” A couple of other Americans might have something to say about that — including Central Oregon’s Ashton Eaton. Eaton, a graduate of Bend’s Mountain View High School who went on to star at the University of Oregon (where the trials will be staged at Hayward Field), finished second at the World Championships and has set world records in the heptathlon three years in a row. American Bryan Clay is the reigning Olympic champion. Hardee dropped out of the Beijing Games after not clearing any heights in the pole vault, knocking him out of fourth place.

the win in relief as Madras banged out 10 hits against five Dragon pitchers. Jack Fine went three for four with a double and McConnell recorded two hits and scored two runs. The biggest atbat of the game came from freshman Cody Shepherd, who hit a two-run single in the bottom of the fifth that gave the Buffs a 4-3 lead. Bend High is off until April 6, when the Bears play at Crook County. Madras travels to Milton-Freewater on Saturday for a single nonleague game.

Some runners cross a boardwalk section of the Deschutes River Trail along the east side of the Deschutes River south of the Bill Healy Memorial Bridge in Bend during the lunch hour Wednesday.

Trails Continued from D1 Meissner says early spring is one of the best times to run on lower-elevation trails in Central Oregon, because the melting snow leaves the trails a bit softer on top. “This time of year the trails are soft, maybe a little muddy,” Meissner explains. “Soft on top with a frozen base, and that’s kind of a sweet spot for you to really relax on it and have fun.” But trails now can be frozen as well, which negates the benefit of avoiding roads. The harder the trail surface, the harder it is on a runner’s joints. “Sometimes when it’s frozen, it’s about like running on concrete or pavement,” Meissner says. “But if it’s too soft, it’s like running on the beach, and you’re fighting against that to keep going.” Finding that balance be-

tween a frozen-solid surface and soft sand is usually not a problem in Central Oregon, as conditions on many trails in the region are often somewhere in between those two extremes. This time of year, accessible trails close to Bend are fairly easy to find. Jeff Browning, an elite long-distance trail runner from Bend, says his favorite trails include the Smith Rock/ Gray Butte area near Terrebonne and the Deschutes River Trail southwest of Bend from Meadow Picnic Area to Benham Falls. Browning is an ultrarunner who competes in races of 30 to 100 miles, so limiting the pounding on his joints is crucial. He says 90 percent of his runs are on trails. “You’ll have less overuse injuries,” says Browning, who won the masters division of the Gorge Waterfalls 50K east of Portland this past Sunday.

“You’re moving in three points of motion — running, cutting, short-stepping — and it keeps you very engaged on the trail. And who doesn’t like to get a little dirty? It definitely helps with (long-term) injury prevention. You’re constantly using little mini muscle groups all the time. Most elite runners spend some time on the trails.” Browning, 40 and a father of three, says he currently runs between 60 and 80 miles per week. The diversity of surfaces is another aspect that draws him to the trails. In Central Oregon, trails can be made up of loose sand dotted with lava rocks, or they can be smooth singletrack covered with pine needles — or anything in between. In Western Oregon, trails are often muddy and strewn with rocks and tree roots. During the Gorge Waterfalls 50K, staged in the Columbia River Gorge, Brown-

ing ran past 14 scenic waterfalls on what he calls “muddy, soft, mushy, hard and rocky terrain.” “It’s so variable depending on where you are, even just in Oregon,” Browning observes. “I’ve pretty much run on everything. That’s the great thing about it. You’re always being introduced to a new scene that you have to adapt to. It’s so diverse. It’s kind of that adventuresome spirit, that hopefully we all still have deep down inside.” Browning adds that fit trail runners can turn a full-day hike into a two- or three-hour run, reaching some pretty spectacular Central Oregon locations quickly and with minimal gear. “You can go light and fast … summit a peak,” Browning says. “There’s all kind of benefits once you get past running a few miles.” — Reporter: 541-383-0318,

Is hand sanitizer safe for children? Editor’s Note: Good Question is a biweekly feature in which a local expert in a particular field answers a question related to family life. Have a question about your family? Send it to family@ By Megan Kehoe The Bulletin

Should my child be Q: using antibacterial hand sanitizer on a regular basis? Dr. John Chunn is a pediatrician and specialist in infectious diseases with Central Oregon Pediatric Associates. He has been with the clinic for 35 years. Chunn says there is a clear answer to this question: Yes, children can and should use antibacterial sanitizer on a regular basis. Chunn says many parents may have misconceptions or concerns about antibacterial sanitizer, but their fears are groundless. “I don’t see any dangers in it,” Chunn said. “There’s absolutely nothing to indicate that it brings any harm to those who use it.” Chunn said if children are at home all day, and aren’t going to be out in public, they probably don’t need to use sanitizer. However, if children have been at school or in public, he recommends they use hand sanitizer to rid of germs. See Question / E3




READY? • Central Oregon educators say kindergarten preparedness is not all about knowing the ABCs, 123s

By Alandra Johnson The Bulletin


ome children arrive for the first day of kindergarten able to read, count to 10 and write their first and last names. Other kids come to class never having held a pencil or owned a book. Differences show up in all sorts of ways: Some children don’t know how to use scissors, interact with their peers, zip up their coats or wait their turn. All of these skills — some social, some cognitive, some physical — factor into whether a child is ready for kindergarten. DeeAnn Lewis teaches classes on kindergarten readiness as part of her role as a parent education coordinator for the Family Resource Center of Central Oregon. She calls kindergarten the most important year of school. Children who don’t like kindergarten, Lewis says, are likely to continue to struggle with school. Children who are not ready for kindergarten are at risk of falling behind academically, she said. Parents, however, can help ensure their children are ready. The good news is that preparing kids for school isn’t about drilling them on the ABCs or busting out flash cards. Turns out, building skills for kindergarten should feel natural and even fun.

Why it matters Sunshine Dandurand teaches reading skills to kindergartners at Buckingham Elementary School in Bend and previously served as a kindergarten teacher for nine years. She says it is fairly clear which students have spent time with books and other enriching experiences and which have not. Dandurand says children can make up this gap, but typically those kids who come in with solid skills end up feeling more confident and more successful and can build from there. A kindergarten teacher for 10 years, California resident Jaclyn Bower, decided to write a book and start a website dedicated to kindergarten readiness ( in order to address issues she saw over the years, especially with children who were “showing up completely unprepared.” As a teacher, she could absolutely tell the difference between children who were prepared and those who weren’t, particularly in terms of confidence and self-esteem. The kids who knew a few numbers and letters felt empowered and excited, Bowers said. She said children who struggle in kindergarten are “always kind of struggling.” And the reverse is also true.

Baby sitter background checks a challenge By Martine Powers The Boston Globe

How can parents ensure that the people they find on child care websites are completely trustworthy? The short answer is that they cannot. The case of David Ettlinger — a teacher arrested on child pornography charges who advertised his services on online baby sitter listings — sheds light on the limits of background checks and the reliability of endorsements by child care search websites. The websites are often subscription-based, and they offer parents a quick way to find a sitter. Potential baby sitters post profiles with a photo, and employers and child care providers can message one another to make plans for an interview. Would-be baby-sitters are automatically screened to verify their identity and checked against state sex offender registries. See Sitter / E6

Sentinel film critic Roger Moore, should be used along with the Motion Picture Association of America rating system for selecting movies suitable for children.

“ T h e Killing� 8 p.m. Sunday, AMC By Steven Zeitchik Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — After last year’s season finale of “The Killing� generated howls of indignation, the show’s blindsided creative team began worriedly plotting to win back its audience. What if the show’s central mystery was answered — something implicitly promised in its first season promotional campaign “Who killed Rosie Larsen?� — in the opening episode of the new season, which begins Sunday? After lengthy discussions, executives at AMC and the show’s production company, Fox Television Studios, ultimately decided against the highly unusual step, according to a person familiar with those talks who was not authorized to speak about them publicly. Instead they sided with writer and executive producer Veena Sud, who believed that they should stick to the original plan — reveal the teenager’s killer at the end of the 13-episode second season. “If you did it right away,� said Fox Television Studios chief David Madden. “There wouldn’t really be much left to say afterward.� That the narrative option, and others like it, were even considered reveal the stakes for “The Killing,� which launches into its new season under one of the heaviest clouds in the history of serial television. The show now debuts to a chorus of viewers who claim they will stick to their year-old vow to never watch again. AMC executives acknowledge that they have their work cut out for them. “We would never take lightly the core viewers who felt misled,� said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s

Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos star in the AMC series “The Killing,� which is returning for its second season.

head of original programming. “It would be foolish to say the response to Season 1 doesn’t up the ante for Season 2.� Adapted from a Danish television series, “The Killing� follows an investigation by Stephen Holder and Sarah Linden (Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos), Seattle homicide detectives investigating the murder of the teenage girl. The season initially earned significant critical buzz that led to six Emmy nominations. Stillerman said the decision to stay the course wasn’t easy. “We listened to and responded to (the backlash), but we opted not to change the essence of the storytelling, because we fundamentally believed in it,� he said. (The plan was always to reveal Larsen’s killer at the end of Season 2, as the Danish original does.) AMC did, however, shape its marketing plan for the new season accordingly. As they crafted the new campaign, AMC executives didn’t want to make overt references to the controversy. But they decided to expand the scope of the marketing beyond the Larsen murder; materials now highlight the role of various people around or investigating the murder, including Holder, as

well as the Larsen family’s grief. “We had to acknowledge (the backlash),� said AMC Senior Vice President of Marketing Linda Schupack. The show also did make a creative concession in the wake of the first season finale reaction: It would start the season with a bang, in contrast to some of the more meditative episodes from the first season. “We said, ‘Let’s make sure that very early in the season, in the first episode, a lot happens,’ � said Madden. “Let’s lead with our strength.� Indeed, fans will find a major development early in the two-hour premiere episode.

Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of fantasy violence and action. What it’s about: Zeus is snatched and taken to the underworld by Hades, so Perseus must venture down to rescue him. The kid attractor factor: A swordand-sorcery fantasy built around Greek gods and special effects. Good lessons/bad lessons: “If you have power, you also have a duty.� Language: Mythically clean. Sex: One overdue smooch. Drugs: Not even wine. Parents’ advisory: So many god and demigods to keep track of, this will confuse younger viewers in between sword fights. Suitable for those 10 and older.

‘INTRUDERS’ Rating: R for terror, horror violence, some sexuality/ nudity and language. What it’s about: A Spanish boy and an English girl find themselves menaced by a monster they seem to have created in scary stories they are writing. The kid attractor factor: Big frights, kids in jeopardy. Good lessons/bad lessons: The

Language: Some profanity. Sex: A gratuitous, moderately explicit sex scene between consenting adults. Drugs: None. Parents’ advisory: Water down the sex scene and this is easily a PG-13. OK for 12-year-old nascent horror fans and older.

‘THE HUNGER GAMES’ Rating: PG-13 for intense violent thematic material and disturbing images — all involving teens What it’s about: In a grim future,

teens are randomly selected for a televised fight-to-the-death. The kid attractor factor: A wildly popular series of young adult science-fiction books comes to the big screen. Good lessons/ bad lessons: “Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.� Violence: Neck-snappings, stabbings, slashings, some of them reasonably graphic. Language: Profanity has apparently been banned in the future. Sex: The flicker of young love is suggested, quite chaste though. Drugs: None. Parents’ advisory: This is sci-fi that skews pretty young, and the rating reflects that. Too violent for 11 and younger though.

A & A 

Casual hello on dating site causes unease on the job Dear Abby: I’m a 27-yearold professional who works long hours at a hospital. Dating isn’t easy for me, so I decided to try an online service. My first time online I recognized a co-worker I see on a regular basis and have always exchanged smiles with, but don’t know personally. I wrote him a message just to say hi. I didn’t say I was interested in him. I never heard back from him. Since I sent that message he has checked my profile several times. But when he sees me in the hallways, he turns red and now just gives me half-smiles. I was waiting at the elevator with him the other day, but he was so embarrassed by the silence that I bailed and took the stairs. He continues to smile, but I’m not sure what to say to him the next time I see him. I think it’s rude that he didn’t reply to my message — even with a “See you around!� — but I’m too embarrassed to do or say anything when I encounter him. Help! — On My Shift in Ohio Dear On Your Shift: Your co-worker may not be particularly adept socially, or he may be reluctant to become involved with someone where he works. Please don’t take his not responding to your email so personally. The next time you run into him in the hall, just say hello. If he has any manners at all, he’ll return your greeting and it may melt the ice. Dear Abby: I work for a national tax preparation business, and I have some advice for customers to make the experience better and more efficient: 1. If at all possible, leave the kids at home. At the very least, don’t allow them to run around the office. We have sensitive equipment and paperwork that is not there to keep your kids entertained. 2. This is our busiest time

DEAR ABBY of year. Lines can be long and clients are impatient, so please don’t hand us a bag of receipts to add up. Plan ahead and do the addition yourself. 3. Before your appointment, ask what’s needed to make the process as efficient as possible. There are many resources online to help you get organized. 4. If you have business expenses and mileage, have that information organized and ready. 5. Be certain you have received ALL your tax-related paperwork (W-2s, 1099s, etc.) before coming in. Being in a hurry will result in your owing the IRS or the state because the income wasn’t completely reported. This small step can avoid many problems. 6. And, please don’t be angry if you have been waiting and your preparer needs to step away for a short time. It’s not unusual for us to work 10 to 12 hours a day helping customers. Like everyone else we occasionally need a break to take our eyes off the computer screen for a little bit, so be understanding. We want to give you the best service possible and making it easier on us will accomplish this task. — Julie in Kearns, Utah Dear Julie: I hope readers will pay attention to your suggestions. Tax season is stressful for everyone involved, but particularly for tax preparation professionals. Being courteous, considerate and as organized as possible will relieve some of the strain not only for the person crunching the numbers, but also for the customer. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Racy pictures on phone an opportunity to teach, not scold By John Rosemond McClatchy Newspapers

stuff and wants to completely ignore it. I say we should deal with it. What say you? It is surely normal for a 13-year-old boy to be attracted to females and to have sexual thoughts and feelings, but your husband is missing a great opportunity here. The fact that the pictures don’t constitute hard-core pornography and that this might be “normal� from a statistical perspective

is beside the point. The door is open for your husband to sit down with his son and give him some fundamental instruction concerning the opposite sex: call it Women 101. He could begin this mentoring by helping your son begin to understand that thinking of women as mere sexual objects is a form of disrespect; that anatomical attributes are not the measure of a woman; that

while good looks are not a bad thing, the real prize is a woman who is a wonderful wife and mother, a woman, in other words, whose beauty goes deeper than her skin. There’s an opening here for your husband to help his son begin the journey to valid manhood. He should seize it!

tween the time you leave the grocery store and the time you get home. Parents might also be concerned about the chemicals and alcohol used in antibacterial sanitizer. Chunn says parents shouldn’t worry about this aspect. “It’s not really an issue,� Chunn said. “The sanitizer isn’t used in large enough quantities to be absorbed

into the bloodstream.� Health professionals use antibacterial sanitizer between 50 and 100 times a day, and it doesn’t cause any ill effect. Children are no different, Chunn said. Chunn said most of the arguments used against antibacterial hand sanitizer are not based on any real evidence, and are mostly theoretical in nature. He said the idea of letting children build up immu-

nity to a variety of germs by exposing them is nonsensical, and that doing something like that would cause more harm than good. “If you’re going to use that argument, you might as well quit washing your hair or bathing so you can become more resistant to germs,� Chunn quipped.

Readiness Continued from E1 “If they can have a great kindergarten experience, it’s like a launching block,” Bowers said. In 2008, the last year Oregon conducted a kindergarten readiness survey, 46 percent of children entering kindergarten met all five of the developmental areas being measured. The information is based on voluntary surveys conducted with kindergarten teachers throughout the state. In 2008, for instance, the results showed 77 percent of kindergartners in Jefferson County meeting the social and personal development areas, while 38 percent of kindergartners in Crook County met the general knowledge and cognitive development areas. The state is currently working on implementing new, more accurate measures of kindergarten readiness as this previous study is considered to have issues with reliability.

What is readiness? When it comes to school readiness, Lewis says, academic skills are secondary to social and emotional skills. While being able to recognize some letters, shapes, colors and numbers is a good thing, it is not as critical as some other aspects. “There is not a teacher in this district who can’t handle the academic portion if the kid comes in ready to learn.” According to Lewis, children who arrive for kindergarten should be able to: • Stand in line • Make friends • Have a vocabulary of feeling words and be able to express their emotions through words rather than actions • Be able to sit still for activities such as circle time • Have the fine motor skills to hold a pencil and use scissors Lewis says children also need to be have experience interacting with other children. Bowers believes social skills are key — those who cannot express their feelings can end up becoming extremely frustrated. They may retreat or end up taking out their frustration on other kids, she says. Bowers also suggests parents think about how their children handle transitions and routines, two important aspects of school. In terms of academics, Bowers says it is helpful if children can recognize a few numbers and letters, in particular the letters in the child’s name or even just the first letter. Otherwise, she says children end up with a lot to learn the first year. “We almost don’t give kids enough credit for what they can learn at age 2, 3, 4,” she said. Kids should also know colors and be able to follow a two- or three-step set of directions, says Bowers. Social skills are also key. Some children may need to learn how to tell their peers “no” and “I don’t like that.” Shy children may need to gain skills for the playground to know how to make friends, says Lewis. She says some children aren’t used to interacting with other kids and will end up standing back and watching. They are “too shy to figure out what they are supposed to do.” Others will try to take over a game or just stand nearby, waiting.

Parents’ role “The best thing parents can do is just reading to kids,” said Dandurand. “The most bang for your buck is nightly reading to your child.” She says five minutes a night is enough. Dana Arntson, director of federal programs for Bend-La Pine Schools, agrees reading is the key to school readiness. It can help children understand stories, develop receptive language skills, vocabulary and much more. “We can tell the kids that have not had experience with books,” said Arntson. Bowers also recommends parents simply talk to their children — explain what’s going on. Or visit museums, libraries and other places and talk about what you see. This can “develop listening skills and gives them knowledge of the world,” said Bowers. But parents need not worry about making a lesson plan. Bowers says: “Make it enjoyable, fun and play-based.” Another thing parents can do is to let kids know they value education and that school is important, says Lewis. Kids can also learn impor-

“Talk to your child about what to expect,” said Sundborg.

What parents can do The following activities are recommended by educators and researchers as ways parents can help their preschoolers become more ready for kindergarten. • Visit your child’s school. • Read to your child.

tant skills when they play games. Playing board games like Candyland and Chutes and Ladders has benefits beyond fun. Dandurand says it helps children learn to take turns and how to count. Children learn how to win and lose and what that feels like — all “skills we take for granted,” but that are necessary, says Dandurand. While she says workbooks aren’t bad, per say, they aren’t necessary. Instead, learning to problem solve and interact are more important. Lewis agrees parents should be able to “just incorporate (kindergarten readiness) into everyday life.” Parents may also want to tailor any efforts to their child. For instance, if parents know a child has trouble with impulse control, they may want to play red light, green light, a game in which children have to fight the impulse to run and have to listen carefully. “Learning to wait until your name is called is difficult,” said Lewis. And some kids need extra practice. While zipping children’s coats or putting on their snow boots for them may be faster, ultimately kids need to know

how to do these things for themselves. Lewis says some children can end up spending half of recess trying to get their gear on and off. Dandurand points out this learning curve can be frustrating for little ones, but “struggling with something is good for their brains.” Creating craft projects can also help kids develop fine motor skills by getting them to use scissors, crayons or hole punchers, says Bowers. “Make it fun; make it a game.” Parents may also want to work with children to pick up after themselves and take care of their things, says Bowers. Some children leave materials sitting out or leave their lunch on the table. That said, Bowers says, “You can’t expect a child to be perfect in school.” Stephanie Sundborg, an early childhood specialist with Deschutes County Children and Families Commission, encourages parents to try to visit the school with their child before school starts to bridge the gap for children, especially those children who might struggle with transitions.

School readiness is one of the education goals outlined by Gov. John Kitzhaber. The state’s Early Learning Council is tasked with helping implement that goal, and a group is working on developing a kindergarten readiness assessment tool, according to Sundborg. The tool is expected to be ready to implement in pilot areas this fall, with plans to roll it out statewide in 2013, according to Sundborg. Children will be measured in areas of maternal and child health, language and literacy development, social and emotional health, family support, and cognitive development. Sundborg says everything from birth on is part of school readiness, so this includes factors like nutrition, health, family involvement and more. “This is a more comprehensive view of readiness. It isn’t something you start preparing for only a few months before school starts,” although she says there are things parents can do in those months to help prepare kids. Sundborg says the goal is for children to be assessed several times before they enter school. Sundborg says schools in Jefferson and Crook counties have requested the opportunity to serve as pilot sites for the assessments. In general, Sundborg says the council is focusing on kids who would be at risk of falling through the cracks. Sundborg hopes that the these steps will not result in an acceleration of academic expectations for kids. She notes there is a range of normal development and children learn better when they are able to discover things for themselves versus having to do rote memorization. That said, Sundborg thinks the goal of kindergarten readiness is a good one, saying there is a correlation between success in kindergarten and graduating from high school. — Reporter: 541-617-7860,


Sitter Continued from E1 And though additional background checks may sometimes be performed by the sites or by parents, Ettlinger’s case highlights their limits, especially in the case of someone who has not been convicted of a crime. Mary Schwartz, spokeswoman for, outlined the company’s efforts to check the background of people in their listings. Ettlinger, a former second-grade teacher at Underwood Elementary School in Newton, Mass., was indicted in Middlesex Superior Court in February for charges of aggravated indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14 (5 counts), posing a child in a state of nudity, posing a child in sexual conduct, possession of child pornography and secretly recording a partially nude person. Before his arrest, Ettlinger had posted a background check with his listing on, another popular child care website. The record included Social Security number verification, along with crossreferences against state and county criminal databases, state sex offender registries, terrorist watch lists, and state prison, parole, and release files. No red flags were raised. That is why some warn that relying on background checks is not enough. “You can’t just go to a website and pick somebody,” said Ollie Smith, interim executive director at the National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies. “There’s no way of vetting people on websites; you just don’t know enough.” On websites such as Care. com and, Ettlinger seems to have extolled his credentials. “Hello, my name is David, and I am interested in

becoming your baby-sitter,” began one of his messages, which he sent through Care. com on Oct. 16. The message was forwarded to the Globe by the parent who received it. “I have tons of energy and I guarantee I can keep up with your little ones,” Ettlinger wrote. “I love doing all sorts of activities with kids and I’m not shy about singing, dancing or doing anything I’d be completely embarrassed to do in front of my peers.” Smith vouched for Care. com, saying it is a reputable website that conducts adequate research on the caretakers it lists. But those checks cannot find someone who has not committed past crimes. Ettlinger was also fit to pass a state background check. “People assume finding someone on a website is the end of the process,” Smith said. “But it’s actually the start of the process.” Schwartz, of, said the company urges parents to perform their own due diligence: Read online reviews and ratings about the person’s past baby-sitting performance, conduct an in-person interview, and check references. Some websites, such as, do not perform background checks themselves, but instead give parents advice on conducting their own research. Candi Wingate — owner and president of Care4Hire. com,, and — said that while those sites post profiles of potential baby sitters, they do not take on the task of background checks. Instead, they share advice on how to check out potential baby sitters or nannies on their own. When asking for references, she suggested, request land line numbers instead of cellphone numbers to be verified against public records. Compare notes with references with dates and details. Most important, conduct an interview in person and meet in a coffee shop or bakery, rather than in your home. “You can never be too safe,” Wingate said.

he live album. It’s a tricky thing. Everything has to come together just so, from the sound in the room to the quality of the recording to the players on stage executing their music in a way that meets their personal artistic standards. For Rubblebucket — the hyper-eclectic Brooklyn, N.Y. pop band that will play in Bend on Sunday (see “If you go”) — all those things came together last fall at the Double Door in Chicago, said Kalmia Traver, the band’s frontwoman and co-founder. The result is the band’s new “Live in Chicago” album and DVD, which comes out April 10. The footage (shot by a company called Audiotree) looked “so great,” Traver said, and the lighting at the club was spot on. The band played for a engaged crowd in a room with “really good energy,” she said.

“And we all played our parts,” Traver said, with just a hint of hesitation in her voice, “pretty much well.” That’s understating it, of course. Currently, if you point your Internet browser at, you’re greeted by a full-screen video of the first performance on the DVD, for the song “Breatherz (Young As Clouds).” The clip is like a five-and-a-half-minute tour of what makes Rubblebucket one of the most dynamic and interesting young bands in the country. It begins with the sound of keyboard and guitar playing a fizzy, intertwined riff, and then the horns come in, vibrant and powerful, like a brassy rainbow streaking across the stage. As the band’s rhythmic eccentricities begin to unfold, Traver dances, surrounded by neon fabrics draped on microphone stands and seemingly lost in the moment. Continued Page 5

Bringing the heat Andy Tullis / The Bulletin

The only thing more impressive than the light show at last week’s Galactic concert in Bend was the band’s sky-high skill level.

• New Orleans’ leading exporter of funk, Galactic, brings the thunder to a packed Domino Room


don’t even know what to write about last week’s Galactic show at the Domino Room in Bend. It’s just so weird to see a terrific band full of top-notch talent, but to also have a tough time connecting with what that band is doing. It makes me feel stuck in a no-man’s land of opinion, where criticism seems unfair, but praise doesn’t exactly come naturally, either. I suspect this kind of hand-wringing and fence-sitting is not what you came here for, huh? I can tell you this: The show was well-attended, despite damp, chilly weather and a no-show by opening band Orgone, who apparently broke down somewhere along the way the Bend. The ol’ Domino was just about

as full as I’ve ever seen it — probably not quite the massive game of sardines inspired by G. Love in 2009, but it was pretty packed, front to back, with a whole bunch of folks upstairs, too. And even without a warm-up act, Galactic had no trouble turning the room into a wall-to-wall party. Now, even though I can’t quite gush about the show, I will say that praise is my first instinct. Put simply: Wow. What a band Galactic is. For some reason, the first comparison that comes to my mind is the planet’s best baseball player, Albert Pujols. You know how there are lots of pro baseball players with a variety of skills? Some are fast, others hit for average. Some are slick fielders. A few bring a well-rounded package of tools

FEEDBACK BY BEN SALMON to the field. And then there is Albert Pujols, a brawny beast of a player with eyes so sharp, forearms so strong and a bat so quick, every pitch to him feels like a potential souvenir for someone beyond the outfield wall. (Oh, and he’s solid in the field, too.) Pujols is a frighteningly perfect specimen, and so is Galactic, a New Orleans-based quintet that has taken funk-rock and aggressively pushed it in new directions, teaming up with rappers and jazz cats and marching bands and whoever else happens to fit into the fusion du jour. Along the way, the band has trans-

formed from fairly standard funk paraders to one of the most interesting, adventurous and popular bands around. Last week, you could see why. (Or rather, you could hear why. I have never seen a show with less light on the performers than this one.) Anchored by the devastatingly heavy rhythm section of Stanton Moore (drums) and Robert Mercurio (bass), Galactic pumped out slab after slab of furious funk-rock, laying down a firm foundation for guest vocals by Corey Glover (of Living Colour fame) and killer trombone work by Corey Henry of Rebirth Brass Band. Each man fit snugly into Galactic’s galaxy. Henry was a multitasker, mostly putting on a hornblowing clinic, but prowling the stage, looking cool, and occasionally taking the microphone to rap and sing. Continued next page

Rubblebucket From Page 3 Then, her agile vocal melody gives way to a skyscraping chorus as bright green lights sweep across the stage. About halfway through, the pop song collapses into a deep and relatively grimy handclap- and sax-fueled groove before bursting back to the surface for the big finish. The performance — both its aural and visual components — demonstrates exactly why Rubblebucket has played to steadily larger and larger crowds over the past few years, leaving jaws on floors all across the country. It also demonstrates why the band felt the need to release a live album, its first after three full-length studio recordings. “We’ve been crafting our live shows since the very beginning,” Traver said. “We’ve toured so much (and we’ve) played all over the country, and … we all had it in our minds that we would love to try to capture this and really get a good representation of it.”

So last fall, a small army of professional tapers attended a handful of Rubblebucket concerts, and Audiotree showed up to the Double Door, and when it was all said and done, the band felt it had something that folks awed by the live show could take with them to approximate the experience at home. “People are always sort of complaining, like, ‘Yeah, we like your albums, but it’s nothing like your live show,’” Traver said. “They told us we really needed to get this out there, so we did.” Indeed, the whole album plays to Rubblebucket’s strengths, namely plucking a bunch of different influences from around the globe and synthesizing them in a way that is not only unique and impressive, but also charming and natural. Whereas many bands cobble together disparate styles into a mishmash that sounds like disparate styles cobbled together, Traver, trumpeter Alex Toth and their band mates — who met in Burlington, Vt. and Boston before moving to New York — take psychedelic pop, left-

of-center funk, jittery Afrobeat and pulsing dance music and push out a prismatic sound that’s totally unaffected and comfortable in its own colorful skin. In a way, Rubblebucket is a band with the 21st century at its fingertips, but the ability to know when to pull back, Traver said. “I think a lot of people these days are pulling from a lot of different influences across global culture … and I think that’s a really natural trend because now that we have computers and the Internet, you can hear anything you want and be really deeply inspired by it,” she said. “(But) pretty much all of us have been trained, and when you’ve been trained you really have to sometimes force yourself to forget your training and specifically make choices where you’re editing yourself,” she continued. “Because I could play a million different fast notes right now, but that’s not what the music calls for. Being aware of that is something that we really try to do.” — Reporter: 541-383-0377,

Feedback From previous page Glover, on the other hand, felt like an integral part of this thick, moist cake, adding his powerhouse vocals to songs like the heavily Big Easyflavored “Hey Na Na,” the deeply funky “You Don’t Know”, and a blistering cover of seminal ‘70s soul artist Swamp Dogg’s “Total Destruction To Your Mind.” Besides his big voice, Glover also

gave Galactic a little bit of grit. So when he left, the band turned into a finely tuned funk machine, with every piece working together smoothly, and nary a note out of place. Especially impressive were the spirited melodies of “Karate,” as well as “Keep Steppin’,” which opened the second set with an ominous groove before giving way to Henry and saxophonist Ben Ellman for some electrifying work on the horns. (Every time Ellman broke out his harmonica was a highlight, too.)

So why didn’t I connect with this awesome display of musicianship, even as a sea of people danced deliriously around me? Well, I could speculate, but we’re running out of room and, frankly, you shouldn’t care. You already know Galactic brought the thunder to Bend on a Thursday night in March, and several hundred people dug it. One dissenting voice doesn’t change that. — Reporter: 541-383-0377,

Rachel Brooke, Boom Chick and Viva Le Vox Music comes from all over the place, don’t ya know. Take The Horned Hand’s Sunday-night bill, for example. Three artists from spots spread out across the eastern half of the United States, converging on a little bar in Bend, Oregon for a night of quality sounds. The quietest of these is Rachel Brooke, a Michigander whose bio says she was born in the wrong time and whose style corroborates the cliche. Brooke’s dusty, slow-moving Western folk is simple and sparse, allowing her sly voice plenty of room to operate. She’s at www.rachelbrooke The loudest is Boom Chick, a stripped-down boy/girl duo from New York City that pumps out a riotous blend of gritty rock ’n’ roll and electrified blues. Their look and sound is perfect for people who loved the White Stripes, a comparison Boom Chick is no doubt sick of. Anyway, find them at www.boomchick And then in the middle is Viva Le Vox, a clattering roadshow of punk, jazz, punk, blues and more punk from the humid swamps of southern Florida. VLV calls itself “uneasy listening, crafted for discerning musical misfits everywhere,” with emphasis on the word ev-

fine. After all, that’s the Fine Arts section, and this is the Music section. Anyway, the music at this thing looks pretty strong: If Bears Were Bees is the domain of Seattle-based singer-songwriter TJ Grant, an extremely prolific fella who seems to have an endless supply of songs that live near the nexus of indie-pop and folk-rock.

Well, here’s a place: The Sound Garden in Bend, on Thursday night, where two West Coast bands will try to bring alt-rock back to life. The bill includes Culprit, an L.A.-based quartet that rides celestial arpeggios into soaring choruses and has lots of music to listen to at www.what It also includes Ticktockman, a Seattle band that has more proggy, bluesy swagger and sounds a bit like The Mars Volta and Soundgarden raging against that machine that ragers are always raging against.

Schneiderman is back at McMenamins Stephanie Schneiderman continues to be one of the best-kept secrets in music-rich Portland. Though given the avalanche of positive press and attention that has piled up around her newest album, “Rubber Teardrop,” one must wonder just how long the secret will be safe. Or if she’s even a secret anymore. Schneiderman’s 2009 album “Dangerous Fruit” was an endlessly engaging listen packed with the singer-songwriter’s memorable melodies and producer Keith Schreiner’s sleek, dreamy electro-pop beats. A certain Bend-based daily newspaper called it “trip-hop with a sugar rush, or a band of lovelorn robots covering Portishead.” Now comes “Rubber Teardrop,” which is more of the same, in a good way. Schreiner’s beats are more insistent, while Schneiderman’s beautifully breathy vocals will float around your brain until bedtime. They may still be there when you wake up, too. “Teardrop” is drawing rave reviews, so jet over to www and take a few tunes for a spin. Then catch her with her full band Thursday night at McMenamins.

TRENT ROMENS AT SILVER MOON Which cloud in Heaven is it, do you think, that regularly drops sandy blond, teenaged blues-guitar prodigies with unnaturally mature singing voices onto our planet? Whichever one it is, you can thank it for Trent Romens, a 19-year-old guy who plays and sings like he’s 59. If you dig fellow blues-cloud products Jonny Lang, Derek Trucks or Kenny Wayne Shepherd, get thee to the Silver Moon on Sunday night. Details at left.

MATT MILLER AT NORTHSIDE BAR Listen to his music and you get the sense that Flagstaff, Ariz.-based guitarist Matt Miller is an old soul. You can hear it in the sturdy plucks, bends and slides he executes atop six strings, as well as his dramatically deep, resonant voice. He’ll warm up the Northside Bar in Bend on Wednesday night. Details at left.

GET TO KNOW FLANNEL BANDANA It’s a new name in town, but Flannel Bandana is filled with familiar faces. The group was built by Moon Mountain Rambler Joe Schulte to marry folksy acoustic music with jazz and global sounds, a la the David Grisman Quintet. Accompanying Schulte: guitarist Gabe Johnson, bassist Tyler Mason, percussionist Dale Largent and fiddler/mandolinist Casey Willis. They’re at McMenamins on Wednesday.

music releases VCMG

Nite Jewel

“SSSS” Mute Records VCMG is a 30-year reunion of sorts for two synth-pop masters, Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore, both songwriters who rarely sing. After writing nearly all of Depeche Mode’s 1981 debut album, “Speak & Spell,” Clarke left the band, going on to start Yazoo and then Erasure. Gore stayed on as Depeche Mode’s songwriter. When Clarke got the idea of making an album of minimal dance music, he contacted Gore, and they started assembling tracks in home studios, collaborating via email. They met face-to-face again last May. “Ssss” is a modest, genially impersonal effort: 10 instrumental tracks that don’t flaunt their authorship. The cavernous spaces of Depeche Mode and the shimmery tones of Erasure are largely set aside in favor of crisply efficient beats and repeated, uninflected synthesizer riffs. Some tracks have deadpan, self-explanatory titles like “Bendy Bass” and “Single Blip.” “Spock” takes its minimal-techno-Minimalism seriously, building out of

“ONE SECOND OF LOVE” Secretly Canadian Ramona Gonzalez, the singer and songwriter of the Los Angeles group Nite Jewel, has a pretty, welcoming mezzo-soprano voice that sometimes drops into contralto range. Right around its lower middle is her sweet spot. It’s there that her dark, mellow tones come out, as well as her generosity, her ambition and possibly her sense of romance. It’s the key to her. Or so I tell myself. But I could be wrong. The Nite Jewel project is very knowing; it’s soaked in notions of simulacra and constructed nostalgia. With analog synthesizers, outdated drum machines and clean, flat production, “One Second of Love,” the group’s second album, is cheaply made, postrecord-industry indie-pop.

One Direction “UP ALL NIGHT” Columbia Records It’s been about a decade since the last boy-band pop craze fizzled out, so we’re overdue for a new crop. Cue One Direction. The quintet of 18-to-20-year-old guys brought together for the British version of “X Factor” in 2010 is prepped to lead the charge with its new single “What Makes You Beautiful” and its debut album, “Up All Night.” Like their boy-band contemporaries, Americans Big Time Rush

staticky zaps and ticks and barely budging off one chord as percussive bits and shadowy chords start to accumulate around the bass pulse. “Skip This Track” goes retro, with neat but distorted analogflavored bass and old-fashioned handclaps. “Zaat” tops its simplistic four-on-the-floor drum with a synthesizer lick that seems to repeatedly stumble over the beat. “Ssss” is not a radical album, but it’s not simply utilitarian dance music either. As mechanized as the tracks pretend to be, and as distant as its collaborators were, it’s easy to imagine Clarke and Gore chuckling with each tweak they added before hitting the Send button. — Jon Pareles, The New York Times

and the Irish sensations The Wanted, One Direction make pleasant pop. Their songs are upbeat, danceable and devoid of anything troubling, aside from the teenage hormones they tend to set a-ragin’. “What Makes You Beautiful” shows off the formula perfectly, as the guys trade off flirty but nonthreatening lines like “The way you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed, but when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell you don’t know-oh-oh, you don’t know you’re beautiful.” The music is super sweet and danceable, but cut slightly with a rock guitar riff here and there. One Direction also handles ballads, with the ’N Sync-y “More Than This” and The Script-like “Same Mistakes.” With Simon Cowell steering their ship, One Direction is focused, competent and (scream!) ready to dote on tween girls with the force of five Justin Biebers. No wonder the frenzy is building. — Glenn Gamboa, Newsday

Here and there April 8 — Doug Fir Lounge, Portland; or 877-435-9489.

The group’s albums and EPs since 2009, of which “One Second of Love” is by far the best, merge old gloss with new austerity. The guitars are clean and spare; the backup vocals are popping and harmonized. The lyrics, about love, beauty and disorientation, sound pretty when sung but read as pure opaqueness. The songs can vary greatly in

The Ting Tings “SOUNDS FROM NOWHERESVILLE” Columbia Records It’s going to be harder and harder to view the Ting Tings’ surprise 2008 hit “That’s Not My Name” as a welcome (possibly feminist) rallying cry if the duo keeps making music that guarantees we’ll forget their names. The melodically inoffensive “Sounds from Nowheresville” doesn’t quite deserve the savaging it’s getting from some critics.

— Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

already claimed to have “started nothing” on its exuberantly scrapped-together debut. Employing even more scraps as varied as spoken garage rock (“Guggenheim”), CSS-style dance-pop (“One by One”), and Major Lazer-style dub-hop (“Soul Killing”), all of which is executed without an original wrinkle, they only get blander with close examination. At least Jessie J has distinctly annoying vocal mannerisms. But it’s shockingly barren and slippery even for a band that has

Brad Mehldau Trio “ODE” Nonesuch Records Brad Mehldau has often seemed like the ultimate introspective jazz musician. “Ode,” his fine new album, draws inspiration from sources beyond himself: former collaborators; members of his family; pop-culture figures from childhood, like Aquaman. “Ode” is the first studio album featuring Mehldau’s current trio, with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard, since “Day Is Done,” the 2005 release that announced the group’s initiation. Since then, there have been marquee collaborations and

style and structure: “She’s Always Watching You” is spacious funk, with a rhythm guitar scrubbing the upbeats; “Unearthly Delights” is twinkly, cosmic and drumless, with a 12-string guitar; “No I Don’t” a kind of morose dubstep. Gonzalez has found a strong, vibratoless voice that’s confident but imperfect in funny ways: because it brings to mind music that’s actually popular, it often seems in need of post-production sweetening. Does she want you to feel that tension? I have a feeling she does.

fertile digressions, including “Highway Rider,” a sprawling, stylistically restless suite. In comparison, “Ode” feels modest and unburdened, delivering the most comfortably centered work of

— Dan Weiss, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Mehldau’s recent career. Most of the trio’s hallmarks are here: resonant lyricism, floating locomotion, a harmonic approach that brings depth to simple structures and sleekness to more complex ones. A brisk, boppish workout like “Stan the Man” feels as loose and unhurried as a drifting waltz like “26.” The most uncharacteristic moment comes on “Wyatt’s Eulogy for George Hanson,” the rare instance in which Mehldau reaches toward rhythmic abstraction. It’s striking, but still not as potently expressive as the title track, a somber theme handled with the freest sort of care. — Nate Chinen, The New York Times




A secret to savor • Palmer’s Cafe in Bend offers heartfelt service and meals from scratch By John Gottberg Anderson For The Bulletin


t is presented on business cards as the “best-kept secret in town,” but I hadn’t been in Palmer’s Cafe for more than five minutes one morning before I fell in love with this oft-overlooked east-side Bend institution. I was welcomed at the door and encouraged to sit where I’d like. I was barely seated before I was offered coffee. Seeing that I was alone, another server came by and asked if I’d like to read the

morning newspaper. All this attention in a little maand-pa-style cafe, set back from Greenwood Avenue and next to a motel that’s been a part of Bend nearly as long as Mt. Bachelor. Owners Harry Johnson and Michael and Karen Kau purchased the cafe — its space leased from Palmer’s Motel — back in November 2001, and have operated it ever since. While the food is good and the prices very reasonable, I’m convinced that the reason they have

developed a devoted clientele is their gracious and sincere hospitality. But that doesn’t diminish the fact that this is a “fromscratch” kitchen; virtually everything served here is made from fresh ingredients immediately before serving. I had a very simple breakfast that first morning: two eggs, over easy, perfectly cooked. Hash browns, soft inside, no grease. Two long strips of bacon, done just to crispy. Continued next page

From previous page And coffee. Although the cup wasn’t a large one, I didn’t have to look around for a refill. It seemed like a server or host was always there to pour more. Light rock music provided a backdrop to my relaxing meal. There are no more than about 10 sturdy tables in this intimate, L-shaped cafe, but it’s rare when they aren’t occupied. Photos of Central Oregon landscapes hang on the walls, adding to the family vibe: They have all been shot and framed by co-owner Johnson.

Breakfast for two So pleased was I with my first solo meal at Palmer’s, I insisted that my dining companion join me a few days later. We discovered that the cafe takes great pride in its homemade blueberry-banana nut bread, so despite its $3 price tag, we shared a slice. Moist and chewy, we found it almost more like cake than bread. And the flavor was balanced, not over the top with banana, as sometimes can happen with this recipe. We both chose egg dishes for our breakfasts. My friend ordered a farmer’s omelet, and that farmer must have been a pig farmer: This was definitely not a vegetarian option. It was filled with big chunks of ham and lots of bacon, along with green onions, avocado, and cheddar cheese folded inside and sprinkled on top. Chopped tomatoes and sour cream provided a finishing touch, along with a fresh wedge of orange as garnish. My huevos rancheros had two fried eggs sandwiched between lightly pan-fried corn tortillas and spooned over with lots of ranchero sauce — a common, tomato-rich Mexican blend incorporating green chilies, onions, garlic and spices. The dish was topped with three generous avocado wedges and was served with refried beans and melted mozzarella cheese. I wouldn’t call either of these dishes gourmet, but they were tasty and well prepared, with nothing under- or overcooked.

A lunchtime return Palmer’s is open only until 2 p.m. daily, but that leaves plenty of time for lunch. We returned to check out the cafe’s sandwich fare. I started my midday meal with a cup of the soup du jour, which on this occasion was albondigas, a homemade Mexican meatball soup. Served in a chicken broth, it also featured coarsely chopped potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and herbs, and was light and delicious. I’m a sucker for a good Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Palmer’s uses organically raised beef from the

Painted Hills ranch near Fossil. The sirloin is sliced thin and served on a French roll with melted Swiss cheese, sauteed red onions and tri-colored bell peppers (red, green and yellow). When I asked for the addition of mushrooms, they were thrown in for no extra charge. The meat was tender, the veggies nicely sauteed, the roll fresh. It was one of the better Phillies I’ve had in the area. My companion opted for a Monte Cristo sandwich accompanied by potato salad. The sandwich was a generous one. Turkey, ham and two cheeses, American and Swiss, were layered in big slices of white bread, dipped in egg batter and grilled with butter. Sprinkled with powdered sugar before it was served, the Monte Cristo tasted almost like savory French toast. Even the potato salad was good. Cooked, chopped potatoes were mixed with German mustard, eggs,

red onions, celery, bacon and the cafe’s secret ingredient: slivered green apples. I’d get a side dish of this salad with any meal. But like the cafe, I’m afraid it’s no longer the best-kept secret in town. — Reporter: janderson@

Close to home COCC exhibit draws entirely from Bill Rhoades’ collection of works by Northwest artists • By David Jasper T h e Bulletin


n April, The Gallery at the Pinckney Center, on Central Oregon Community College’s Bend campus, will play host to a new exhibit, “Artists of Oregon,” featuring works from the 1940s to the present. The 42 paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs are the creations of such Oregon artists as George Johanson, Frederic Littman, Imogen Cunningham, Jack McLarty, Louis Bunce, Carl Morris, Sally Haley, Andrew Vincent, Harry Widman, Rene Rickabaugh, Laura Ross-Paul, Jack Portland, Paul Buckner, John Stahl, Michael Knutson, Coralee Popp and many others. The exhibit opens Thursday (see “If you go”) and comes entirely from the private collection of Bill Rhoades. The Madras man began collecting Northwest art when he was living on the edge of downtown Portland in the 1970s. It was partly due to being an avid hunter that led him to seek a new quarry: works by regional artists. “I had this young puppy, a Labrador, and a guy who was one

house down from me had a young Chesapeake Bay retriever, and we just started talking in the park one day, and started training dogs together,” Rhoades told GO! Magazine last week. “It turned out he was an artist.” Back in those days, “everybody catalogued their artwork with slides, and so he needed somebody to do that,” said Rhoades, who was a self-taught photographer. “I had all these floodlights, tripods and everything, and I just went over and started photographing his artwork for him.” Trading for his photography services didn’t stop there. Rhoades began attending Portland art openings, “and I would meet people there and talk to them. And little by little, I started a pretty modest collection back to the ’50s,” said Rhoades. “And then, over time, I got more and more interested in it. Even after I moved over here, I had a lot of friends who were artists.” Continued next page

The Workhouse set to open Saturday A new artists collective, The Workhouse, will host an opening with live music, food, art and more from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday. The space is located inside the Old Ironworks (50 Scott St., Bend) and has eight large work stations for individual artists, a community table that doubles as a runway, and a fashion lab that designers can rent by the month, geared to retail sales. A news release announcing the opening quotes co-founder Cari Dolyniuk thusly: “Here at Workhouse, we are of the mind that work pays. By offering an atmosphere of camaraderie, excellence, innovation and creativity, we hope to encourage our community to Get Back To Work. Not drudgery, not ‘jobs,’ but work: the physical or mental effort or activity directed toward the production or accomplishment of something — especially related to the arts. “By creating a space with open, active work studios, and housing a place of exchange between makers and buyers we believe we can bring the power of economy back into our own hands.” Starting Wednesday, The Workhouse will be open for regular business hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.

MOCKINGBIRD GALLERY 869 NW WALL ST. 541-388-2107 From previous page One artist with whom he traded photography for art was Manuel Izquierdo, whose welded bronze “Flower” is part of the COCC exhibit. Izquierdo encouraged Rhoades to pursue similar arrangements with artists whose work he admired. “I’d either meet people at galleries or art events, or I would just write them out of the blue and tell them that I like their work and (ask) if they would be interested in trade,” Rhoades said. Along with that, Rhoades, who made a humble living as a Madras newspaperman for 15 years, was “opportunistic” in finding ways to procure art, buying on the secondary market (that is, not directly from galleries or artists) and seeking out works in antiques shops and other corners. The goods he bartered weren’t limited to photographs. “I was in-

terested in things like Navajo rugs, baskets, Oriental rugs. These are all things that artists like also,” he said. “I still do that, and have a number of (trades) in the works as we speak.” Rhoades has been sharing his private collection with the public for years. The largest portion — more than 300 works — resides at Willamette University’s Hallie Ford Museum in Salem. “I started donating work to them even before the museum opened, and have been doing that, at the very least, annually,” he said, including Indian baskets and other items. “Over time, I’ve refined my tastes and offered them better and better things.” More recently, he’s donated a number of works to Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus. Rhoades will be on hand at The Gallery at the Pinckney Center on

Thursday for the opening of “Artists of Oregon.” Asked if he has a favorite in the collection, Rhoades mentioned a portrait of his girlfriend done by George Johanson, then added, “To tell you the truth, they’re all special. I just love each and every piece. So many of them have personal connections … I either got these from the artists themselves, or somebody who knew them.” Bill Hoppe, the COCC associate professor of art behind the exhibit, plans to make “Artists of Oregon” an annual series. “I want to feature in our gallery artists of our region and from the state and show how we’re building on this history,” he said. “It’s going to be both looking back and looking at what’s going on currently. And this is the start.” — Reporter: 541-383-0349,

Nordic skiing at Hoodoo

Hiking in the Badlands


he little-known nordic trail system at Hoodoo Mountain Resort provides impeccably groomed

trails for skate skiing and classic skiing on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It’s a great change of scenery for a skate skier, and worth the extra drive. Hoodoo’s trails are divided into two systems — upper and lower trails. Upper trails are harder and more scenic. Lower are easier and offer plenty of great mountain views on a clear day. — Bulletin staff

devoted to dance • Oregon Ballet Theatre is joining the annual statewide celebration By Jenny Wasson The Bulletin


n 2011, the Oregon State Legislature declared the last week of April Oregon Dance Week. Featuring free dance classes around the state, lectures and performances, this year’s celebration will be held April 23-29. As part of the festivities, the Oregon Ballet Theatre company will debut its new spring program, “Chromatic Quartet.” Featuring two company premieres and a world premiere, the show will run April 19-28 at the Newmark Theatre in Portland. According to a news release, the “‘Chromatic Quartet’ celebrates surprising intersections that make for inspired partnership.” The program includes “Stravinsky Violin Concerto” by George Balanchine, “Liturgy” by Christopher Wheeldon, “The Lost Dance” by Matjash Mrozewski and “Lambarena” by Val Caniparoli. Balanchine choreographed the “Violin Concerto” as part of the Stravinsky Festival in 1972. A frequent collaborator with Stravinsky, Balanchine wrote the piece as a “love letter to his mentor and creative partner,” according to the release. It was considered “the undisputed mas-

terpiece of the festival.” Wheeldon’s “Liturgy” uses composer Arvo Part’s “Fratres for Violin, Strings and Percussion.” Following “There Where She Loved” and “Rush,” “Liturgy” is Wheeldon’s third work to enter the Oregon Ballet Theatre repertoire. Mrozewski is a Canadian choreographer on the rise. The Oregon Ballet Theatre will present “The Lost Dance” on stage for the first time. Known for his “risky and diverse repertoire” and “invigorating, witty and exciting ‘flash mobs,’” Mrozewski’s new work features electronic music by Owen Belton and costumes by Portland designer Adam Arnold, according to the release. The program is rounded out with the return of Caniparoli’s “Lambarena.” Set to the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach and West African chants and rhythms, “Lambarena” blends “traditional West African dance movements with classical ballet.” Ticket prices range from $23 to $140, depending on seat location. To purchase tickets and for more information, visit, or call 888-922-5538. — Reporter: 541-383-0350,

Weekly download ‘MOTORSTORM RC’ For: PlayStation 3 and Vita From: Evolution Studios/Sony ESRB Rating: E for Everyone Price: $10 on PS3, free on Vita for a limited time If you ever imagined how amusing it might be to see “Motorstorm’s” hulking off-road vehicles shrunk down to RC car form, just wait until you see one of them flip over and land haplessly on its plastic back. “Motorstorm RC” takes the gimmick and runs wild with it. The tracks are miniaturized, toy-car replicas of courses from all four previous “Motorstorm” games. “RC’s” default controls mimic those of a remote control, with one stick (or R2 trigger on the PS3) handling the gas and brake while the other handles steering. You can customize these settings to use buttons if you wish. But if you want to beat your friends’ ghost times and get gold medal scores across all 48 events — a mix of races, time trials, overtake challenges and drift competitions — you’re advised to master the analog acceleration in order to tame the vehicles’ stubborn handling. — Billy O’Keefe, McClatchy-Tribune News Service




Courtesey Warner Bros. Pictures

Sam Worthington reprises his role as Perseus in “Wrath of the Titans,” the boisterous, special effects-laden sequel to 2010’s boisterous, special effects-laden “Clash of the Titans.”

Heroes! Monsters! Fireballs! • In ‘Wrath of the Titans,’ not even the gods themselves can compete with the special effects


aybe it was the three exploding mountains too many. Or the dozen surplus fireballs. Or too much noise. “Wrath of the Titans” relentlessly wore me down with special effects so overscaled compared to the characters in the film that at times the only thing to do was grin. The characters, to be sure, are gods and not humans, but they are human-sized gods, and

give it a moment’s thought: What chance does your average muscular god have against the grinding stones of a labyrinth as large as a volcano? But hold on a second. Why, you may be wondering, are the Titans feeling wrathful? The seeds of their present discontent can be traced back a decade (or two years in movie time) to the events related in “Clash of the Ti-

tans” (2010), where Perseus (Sam Worthington) defeated the Kraken and hopefully retired to raise his young son. Perseus, you may recall, is a demigod, the son of Zeus (Liam Neeson) and a human mother. Or maybe you don’t recall. Anyway, Perseus’ retirement is not meant to be because there is a crisis in the world of the gods. Humans are losing their faith in them,

and the gods, no matter what you may have been led to believe, depend for their power on the faith of those who believe in them. I was reminded of Tinker Bell, and toyed with the notion of Perseus turning to the audience and asking, “Do you believe in gods?” Perseus, in any event, is not very fond of Zeus, who did, after all, rape his mother.

It’s (almost) all about the music • ‘Chico & Rita’s’ engaging story line and fantastic music make up for its so-so animation


hico & Rita” enjoyed one of the biggest surprises in the 2012 Oscar nominations by winning a slot as best animated film. That meant this indie production placed ahead of such big-time entries as Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin.” The reason for that is the story and the music, I suspect, not the animation. This is a nearly operatic romantic tragedy, involving a lifelong affair of the heart between two Havana musicians: Chico, a piano player, and Rita, a vocalist. Their mutual problem is that Chico is unfaithful by nature, and although Rita is the woman he loves, when he’s not with the one he loves, he loves the one he’s with. Rita is two-timed once too often, and sets off on her own — a mistake, because when they’re together they have a taste of stardom, and when apart a tendency to self-destruct. The film opens in Batista’s Havana, a hotbed of jazz and AfroCuban music, where luxurious clubs, casinos and hotels have created a Caribbean entertainment mecca, mostly controlled by American gangsters and corporations. It’s a fluid, exciting scene, where in one night Chico can discover Rita singing in an open-air club and sweep her along when he’s discovered by Woody Her-

man in a show in a beachfront hotel. Herman’s piano man is sick. Chico and Rita walk in, Chico is recruited to fill the empty piano stool, it’s clear how talented he is, and in no time at all he and Rita team up to win a talent contest on a radio station and a lucrative contract. They even have a hit record, masterminded by a breezy con man named Ramon, who dedicates himself to managing them. Life takes them to New York and a hit record, but the faithless Chico loses Rita to the company of a slickster Yankee named Ron, who gets her a few good bookings before she blows a Vegas gig by being drunk on stage. The story is told in flashback from Chico’s lonely life today and Rita’s equally cheerless existence. The problem we have with their romance is that most of the time it isn’t working. We don’t sense the urgency of their passion so much as the finality of their problems. Apparently, they’re doomed to exist in a permanent state of breakup. The animation by co-directors Fernando Trueba, Javier Mariscal and Tono Errando is filled with motion and color, yes, but could have benefitted from characters who seemed more like quirky individuals and less like types. Oddly, the backgrounds were

Fro m previou s page But the time has come to take a larger view. Zeus is being held prisoner by Hades (Ralph Fiennes), who hopes to usurp his power. Now Perseus must journey to the underworld to rescue his father, restore his power, and prevent Hades from ruling civilization. This he and his team must do by negotiating a labyrinth and descending to Tartarus. The labyrinth scene isn’t bad. This phenomenon was built from the outside in, we learn, leaving only one escape route. It consists of an unimaginably massive maze of enormous rocks, arranged like a clockwork mechanism so that its elements grind and shift and

change forms. The stones indeed seem to be able to sense where the gods are, and toy with them. It is frankly impossible to see how the (humansized) gods have half a chance in its bowels, especially since exits become dead ends, narrow corridors begin to crush in upon them, and so on. If you were to quiz me on how they escaped, I would be puzzled. They just … found their way out, I guess. But never mind. “Wrath of the Titans” is obviously not concerned with plausibility. It lacks a comprehensible story and you won’t need your CliffsNotes on the Greek myths. You get a rough idea of who the major players are, and

the parts of “Chico & Rita” I liked the most: Havana in its pre-Fidel days of big spenders, New York in the heyday of jazz, Paris when foreign musicians were hot, Vegas in its early golden years. Architecture, neon signs and big, classic American cars are all done with brio and abandon. It’s entertaining to watch, and I enjoyed the way they slipped in such real-life figures as Dizzy Gillespie beside the fictional leads. The music is terrific. Idania Valdes dubs Rita’s sensuous, smoky

singing voice, and the film is essentially constructed as a musical. There came a point when the sweep of the romantic story caught me up as much as a narrative film might have, and I wasn’t distanced by the animation. After seeing the film, I went online to see if Chico and Rita were inspired by real-life musicians. None in particular, I learned. But probably a great many in general. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

That’s where the fireballs and exploding mountains come in. No attempt is made to achieve a consistent physical scale in the movie, nor a comprehensible spatial plan. I was never quite sure where anybody or anything was in relation-

ship to anything else, and eventually I gave up trying: This is a montage of sweaty, dirty, bloodied faces and figures assembled to fit between balls of fire. I should have added that the movie is in 3-D. This is not a help. “Wrath of the Titans” is, to begin with, a dusty, murky pictorial confusion, not helped by dim underworld scenes, and although I’m sure the focus must be excellent, it

had an imprecise feeling to me. Then the 3-D glasses did their bit to reduce the light level from the screen, and unlimited clouds of smoke, dust and sand were generated by the explosions, and finally I found myself wondering, just for the heck of it, how the movie might have played with a more traditional approach. You know: Literate, concise dialogue. Characters we care about, with relationships that have meaning for us. Action setpieces within well-established spatial boundaries. Pacing that doesn’t hurtle past us faster than the human ability to maintain interest. You know, that kind of stuff. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

Gaudy fun, but ‘Mirror Mirror’ falters “M

irror Mirror” is a sumptuous fantasy for the eyes and a pinball game for the mind, as story elements collide and roll around bumping into each other. This is not a faithful retelling of the versions by the Brothers Grimm or Walt Disney, but neither is it a satire, nor much of a story in its own right. But it’s great to look at. If there’s a major difference in the earlier versions, it’s the beefed-up roles for the Seven Dwarfs, who here seem to be a merry band in search of Robin Hood. Nor do I recall earlier battles with a giant winged griffin. The look of the film owes everything to the director, Tarsem Singh, an India-born former TV commercial maker, famous for two of the best-looking movies I’ve ever seen, “The Cell” (2000) and “The Fall” (2006). He’s in love with spectacu-

lar landscapes and architecture, and in all of his films (including the underwhelming “Immortals” in 2011) the costumes of the late Japanese designer Eiko Ishioka dominate every scene they’re in and every character they’re worn by. Julia Roberts seems particularly well-suited to wear them, and

when first seen is wearing a magnificent orange gown and seated on a seashell throne that acts as a frame and a continuation of the costume. Roberts plays the Queen in a kingdom we’re introduced to by her opening narration — which uses animated doll figures to fill us in on her early life, during which she was married to a King (Sean Bean) who promptly set off into the forest and was not seen again. That left her as the autocratic ruler of a kingdom with painfully high taxes, and the mother of Snow White (Lily Collins), who is a captive in the castle until she’s 18. There is a financial crisis. Brighton (Nathan Lane), her aide and accountant, tells her she’s broke. That comes at an inconvenient time, because Prince Alcott (Armie Hammer) has wandered into the kingdom, and the Queen knows if she marries him, he can solve

her finances. Problem is, she can’t even afford the royal ball at which she plans for them to fall in love. The Prince has already met Snow White; they were both wandering in the woods when they encountered the Seven Dwarfs, jolly bandits with good hearts. It is Snow White and not the Prince in this version who bestows a lifechanging kiss. It’s almost uncanny in some scenes here, how Lily Collins (daughter of Phil Collins) looks like Audrey Hepburn. She’s all sweet, all innocent, but Julia Roberts steals the show with her imperious and autocratic Queen. She consults her own image in a mirror, located as only Tarsem would place it in a weird structure in the middle of a lake. She never asks who is the fairest of them all, and thus never has to hear the inevitable answer, but the Queen’s vanity and fear

of aging give Roberts some plum scenes. Consider the one where she’s having a spa-style beauty makeover before the ball. Her lips become bee-stung with the help of real bees, she gets a manicure from disgusting wormy creatures, and her skin is refreshed with a preparation made up from parrot droppings. All of this is in place and looks great, but the dialogue is rather flat, the movie sort of boring, and there’s not much energy in the two places it should really be felt: between the Queen and Snow White, and between Snow and the Prince. The story is a listless tale that moves at a stately pace through settings that could have supported fireworks. Indeed, the characters who seem to care the most about each other are the dwarfs. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.





A whimsical comedy with a happy ending J eff is 30, unmarried, unemployed and lives in his mother’s basement, wreathed in pot fumes. So large and unkempt his brother calls him Sasquatch, he watches the M. Night Shyamalan movie “Signs” over and over again, convinced it contains the key to the universe. That key, Jeff thinks, is that the universe is filled with meaningful coincidences, and all you must do is remain alert to them and your destiny will take care of itself. This is probably iron-clad logic if you smoke pot in the basement for long enough. If Jeff (Jason Segel) is aimless, his brother, Pat (Ed Helms), is stuck in a lifeless marriage and doesn’t realize it. His relationship with his wife, Linda (Judy Greer), is limited to registering her presence. While she focuses on saving money for a house, he reveals he’s purchased a Porsche because ... well, he got a good price. He takes her out to the deck of their condo to admire it in the driveway, and she startles him by dumping her breakfast on it. The nice breakfast (toasted waffles and Reddi-Wip) he has just prepared for her! Women! What do they want? Jeff and Pat share a widowed mother, Sharon (Susan Sarandon), who is approaching a

birthday and demands that Jeff blast loose from the basement and perform one simple task for her: replacing a kitchen shutter. Nothing can be simple when the universe is filled with signs and coincidences. Thus commences an eventful day for the family. “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” is the new film by the brothers Duplass, Jay and Mark, who began in mumblecore with “The Puffy Chair” (2005), and created a comic gem in “Cyrus” (2010). The first involved two brothers and a shaky relationship. The second involved a mother and a demanding son who lives at home. In this film, the name “Kevin” seems to be a signpost from the universe.

‘Salmon’ a well-meaning comedy that flounders • The actors seem a bit at sea and the story line doesn’t quite hook you


almon fishing in the WHAT? The title is no doubt intended to inspire incredulity. In a river in the deserts of Western Yemen, that’s where. “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” is based on Paul Torday’s novel, a political satire that was a best-seller in the U.K., and allows an opening into the worlds of British and Yemeni politics, the devotion of salmon fishermen and the possibilities of romance among humans and salmon, who in this story must both swim upstream. There is a kind of character in British comedies I am fond of, the eccentric scientist with a narrow focus. Recall Alec Guinness as “The Man in the White Suit.” Here the role is played by Ewan McGregor, as Dr. Alfred Jones, a salmon expert in the British fisheries, who is known not only for his vast knowledge but also for some of the famous fishing flies he has designed. It seems a little callous to both study salmon and fish for them, but he is an affable

young man who finds himself in over his head when a sheikh hatches a plan to transport his favorite pastime to his Middle East homeland. Briefly, the sheikh intends to construct a dam to convert a previously undistinguished river into a home where salmon can sport and spawn. He counts on Jones to supply him with 10,000 salmon from waters farther north. Will the salmon like it in the desert waters? For them, it’s sink or swim.

The sheikh (Amr Waked) is an incredibly wealthy man who seemingly has only a single interest in life, salmon fishing. He’s clearly a member of the 1 percent. He seeks the cooperation of the British government for his project, and this involves the prime minister and, in particular, his supercharged personal assistant Patricia Maxwell (Kristin Scott Thomas). On the sheikh’s team is Harriet Chetwode-Talbot (Emily Blunt), hired to handle the financial details from the Yemini side. It’s her job to sign up Alfred. If I were a poor citizen of Yemen, struggling to feed my family, I wouldn’t find this project charming, and indeed terrorists are stalking the sheikh and even blow up a dam to drown him. The sheikh’s response to the death attempts is disappointment: “They thought it was all about the fish!” Well, I did, too. Apparently his motives are pure and green. Continued next page


Salmon From previous page Dr. Jones and Ms. ChetwodeTalbot are destined to fall in love almost from the moment they set eyes on each other. This is an inconvenience because she is engaged to Robert (Tom Mison), a soldier who is missing in action, and he is married to Mary (Rachael Stirling). They try to remain at respectful arm’s length, which is not easy, while the inappropriately dressed Patricia Maxwell turns up on a fact-finding visit to possibly the biggest public works project in the region. This perhaps sounds to you like a hilarious movie. So it could be, in the hands of the masters of classic British comedy. Unfortunately, the director is the Swedish Lasse Hallstrom (“Chocolat”), who sees it as a heartwarming romance and doesn’t take advantage of the rich eccentricity in the story. The sheikh in particular is an enigma. Is he a public servant, a foolish hobbyist, a spoiled rich man, or a still water that runs deep? Middle East politics have become so touchy that Hallstrom and his writer, Simon Beaufoy, refrain from making

Jeff From previous page Jay’s next film will be titled “Kevin,” a doc about an early hero of the brothers. Their basement must be a hotbed. This film is a whimsical comedy, very whimsical, depending on the warmth of Segel and Sarandon, the discontent of Helms and Greer, and still more warmth that enters at mid-point with Carol (Rae Dawn Chong), Sarandon’s co-worker at the office. We get the impression they’re all waiting around for the universe to whack them over the head with a 2-by-4 sign, and in the last act, it does. All the major characters are stuck in a traffic jam on a bridge when an accident occurs. Now there’s a coincidence that comes with a sign attached. What happens next can best be described

What’s left is the love story, which waltzes along with the schmaltzy score by Dario Marianelli. I’ll be curious to see what kinds of audiences the movie attracts. Few people in this country have probably read the novel. The trailer promises a sweeping romantic comedy. The movie comes down to a missed opportunity. The happy ending is cornball. Only Kristin Scott Thomas, as the hypercharged operative for the prime minister, seems to understand she’s in a comedy. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

as a melodramatic event that isn’t terribly likely, but is terrifically effective in lowering a onesize-fits-all “deus ex machina” into the plot. It’s all cute and self-aware, a pleasant joke on the audience, a happy ending for characters we like. It’s not a feel-good movie, more of a feelsorta-good movie. One stylistic note: In nearly every scene, the Duplass brothers use quick little zooms in and out. Given the usual meaning of a sudden zoom in the grammar of the cinema (they translate as “Whoa!”), these have no meaning at all. They’re simply devices to remind us that the story isn’t really happening, but is being directed. Instead of “Whoa!” they translate as “Duplass!” They’re good directors; they’ll outgrow this. — Roger Ebert is a film critic for The Chicago Sun-Times.

WHAT’S NEW “Chico & Rita” — A romantic tragedy, involving a star-crossed affair between two Havana musicians: Chico, a piano player, and Rita, a vocalist. Chico is unfaithful by nature, and although Rita is the woman he loves, when he’s not with the one he loves, he loves the one he’s with. Rita is two-timed once too often, and sets off on her own — a mistake, because when they’re together they have a taste of stardom, and when apart a tendency to self-destruct. Colorful period cityscapes and a lot of good jazz. A 2012 Oscar nominee for best animated film. Rating: Three and a half stars. 93 minutes. (no MPAA rating)

“Jeff, Who Lives at Home” — Jeff (Jason Segel) is 30 and lives in his mother’s (Susan Sarandon) basement, smoking pot. His brother, Pat (Ed Helms), is stuck in a dead marriage with Linda (Judy Greer). Jeff believes the Shyamalan movie “Signs” contains signs that are key to the universe. During one eventful day, many signs manifest themselves to the characters, who also include Rae Dawn Chong in a warm supporting role. A whimsical, sweet comedy. Rating: Three stars. 83 minutes. (R) “Mirror Mirror” — A retelling of the fairy tale in a sumptuous fantasy setting, with Julia Roberts and Lily Collins wearing the costumes of a career by the late, legendary Japanese designer Eiko Ishioka. They are the Queen and her daughter, Snow White, Armie Hammer plays the charming Prince, and in this version more screen time is given than ever before to the Seven Dwarfs. Looks great, but the dialogue is rather flat, the movie sort of boring, and there’s not much energy in the two places it should really be felt: between the Queen and Snow White, and between Snow and the Prince. Rating: Two and a half stars. 106 minutes. (PG) “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” — A rich sheikh enlists a fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) to work on his scheme to dam a desert river and introduce his favorite sport to his homeland. With Emily Blunt as the sheikh’s assistant and the fishologist’s love interest, and Kristin Scott Thomas, funny as the right hand of the British PM. Could have been rich satire; is instead soppy romance. Rating: Two and a half stars. 111 minutes. (PG-13) “Wrath of the Gods” — A great confusion of exploding mountains, fireballs, horrid monsters and gods shouting laughable dialogue at one another, all filmed in dim, dusty 3D. Occasionally an action set-piece works (like a trip through a massive labyrinth), but the (human-sized) gods seem too puny; we don’t see how they can possibly survive unless

they slipped a few bucks to the screenwriters. With Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Rosamund Pike. This film is available locally in 3-D and IMAX. Rating: Two stars. 99 minutes. (PG-13)

STILL SHOWING “21 Jump Street” — Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum play Schmidt and Jenko, who were opposites in high school and now, a few years later, find themselves partners in a police undercover program that enrolls them in high school. They don’t look young enough, but so what? The movie cheerfully ignores the dramatic focus of the 1980s Fox series and becomes a mashup of screwball comedy, action and the “Odd Couple” formula. Better than you might expect. Rating: Three stars. 109 minutes. (R) “Act of Valor” — Actual Navy SEALs are used in a war thriller involving the freeing of a kidnapped CIA agent and a field operation to prevent terrorists from entering the U.S. through tunnels from Mexico. The action footage is nonstop and effective. The characters are not seen in any depth. The SEALs seem real, all right, but are required to do little character acting. The film opens and closes with strong appeals to patriotism, but in between it’s a Friday night special for teenage action fans. Rating: Two and a half stars. 101 minutes. (R) “The Artist” — A brand-new silent comedy that’s a charming crowdpleaser, and has swept up many year-end awards on its march toward the Oscars. Jean Dujardin stars as a 1927 silent star who is thrown out of work with the rise of talkies, but not forgotten by the little dancer (Berenice Bejo) he was kind to when he was big and she was a nobody. The film is made with warmth, wit, big laughs, unabashed melodrama. A silent movie for people who think they don’t like silent movies. Rating: Four stars. 100 minutes. (PG)

Jolie, with particular emphasis on how wars victimize women. Moving and involving, but the melodrama somehow plays in a minor key. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Two featurettes, a Q-andA segment and deleted scenes. Rating: Two and a half stars. 126 minutes (R) ALSO OUT THIS WEEK: “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked”

The following movies were released the week of March 27.

“A Dangerous Method” — David Cronenberg’s film involves the early years of psychoanalysis, the eventful association of Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Jung (Michael Fassbender), and the role played in their lives by Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), who was first their patient and later their colleague. Intelligent, absorbing; it would help to know something about psychoanalysis, or at least be curious to learn, before seeing this film. DVD and Blu-ray Extras: Two featurettes and audio commentary. Rating: Three and a half stars. 99 minutes. (R) “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” — The story of an 11-yearold boy named Oskar (Thomas Horn), whose father, Thomas (Tom Hanks), was killed in 9/11. Finding a key labeled “Black” that was left behind by his dad, the boy is determined to visit everyone named Black in New York City. Perhaps it will unlock a previous secret. Good acting here by young Horn, Hanks, Sandra Bullock as

From previous page “Big Miracle” — The title isn’t an exaggeration. It was something of a “Big Miracle,” the way the plight of a family of gray whales, stranded under the Alaska ice, captivated the country and forced oil men and environmentalists, natives and Cold War foes to team up back in the waning days of the Reagan administration. And it’s no small miracle that the story of that nearly forgotten moment makes for a delightful family movie. Political cynicism, media opportunism, dogmatic native “tradition,” corporate greed and environmentalist stubbornness are each, in turn, dashed against this sunny Ken (“License to Wed”) Kwapis confection. Rating: Three stars. 104 minutes. (PG) — Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

“Casa de mi Padre” — Will Ferrell speaks and sings in Spanish, in a spoof of Telemundo horse operas. Why? Because he can, I guess. With Gael Garcia Bernal as a local drug lord, Diego Luna as Ferrell’s brother, Pedro Armendariz Jr. as their father, and Genesis Rodriguez as the lovely senorita. Raing: Two stars. 84 minutes. (R)

COMING UP: Movies scheduled for national release April 3 include “Shame,” “We Bought a Zoo” and “War Horse.” Check with local video stores for availability. — Roger Ebert, The Chicago SunTimes (“DVD and Blu-ray Extras” from wire and online sources)

But the idea of a small boy walking all over New York is preposterous, and the story is too contrived to provide consolation after such a tragedy. DVD Extras: Featurette; Blu-ray Extras: Three

additional featurettes. Rating: Two and a half stars. 129 minutes. (PG-13) “In the Land of Blood and Honey” — About a Serbian policeman named Danijel (Goran Kostic) and a Muslim artist named Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) who are just falling in

“Chronicle” — Three high school students find a hole in the middle of a gloomy, grassy field, climb down, encounter a strange, crystalline object and find themselves with such superpowers as telekinesis. But this isn’t a typical sci-fi movie; as acted by Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan, they have a surprising realism as their powers take on new dimensions and one of them begins to act out his inner rage. Rating: Three and a half stars. 83 minutes. (PG-13)

“The Hunger Games” — Jennifer Lawrence is strong and convincing as the lead in a science-fiction parable set in a future where poor young people are forced into deadly combat for the entertainment of the rich. The earth-toned naturalism of forest hunting scenes is in odd contrast to the bizarre oddballs at the top in this society. An effective entertainment, but too long, and it avoids many obvious questions about this society’s morality. Rating: Three stars. 142 minutes. (PG-13)

“Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” — From Universal’s “Despicable Me” team, “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax” is a gorgeous and glorious new film that turns a somewhat gloomy, cautionary tale into a 3-D musical, with catchy tunes and gags borrowed from every film from “Toy Story” to “Babe.” The film is a feast of bright, Seuss colors and wonderful Seuss design — all curvy, undulating lines and shapes and the songs are a stitch. “Lorax” takes on echoes of “WALL-E” as it embraces its gloom. But it’s all a set up for the redemption song, the gospel-tinged “Let it Grow.” This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Three and a half stars. 94 minutes. (PG)

“John Carter” — A Civil War veteran (Taylor Kitsch) finds himself transported to Mars, where he lands in the middle of a planetary war between two humanlike cities, with the local four-armed race of Tharks in the middle. Lots and lots of action, a terrific heroine in Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins), an intriguing alien design and well-done special effects. Director Andrew Stanton lacks the kind of tightly written script he had in “Finding Nemo,” and as science fiction this is a couple of notches down from his “WALL-E,” but the movie is competent weekend action. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Two and a half stars. 132 minutes. (PG-13)

his father. A wonderfully written and acted, very human story that ends in a courtroom. These decent characters are all trying to do the right thing. To untangle right and wrong in this fascinating story is a moral challenge. The best film of 2011. Rating: Four stars. 123 minutes. (PG-13) “A Thousand Words” — Eddie Murphy struggles with an inane screenplay about a man who learns that after every word he speaks, a leaf falls off the bodhi tree in his backyard. When the last leaf falls, he dies. The movie never quite explains why this is so. It also never convinced me it should have been made. Rating: One and a half stars. 91 minutes. (PG-13)




From previous page “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” — A transcendently goofy boy’s own adventure tale, with young Josh Hutcherson and his mom’s boyfriend (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) rescuing his grandfather (Michael Caine) from a lost island in the South Pacific, after teaming up with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his sultry daughter (Vanessa Hudgens). With elephants as small as dogs, lizards the size of dinosaurs, bees so big you can ride them bareback, an exploding volcano, the lost city of Atlantis, Captain Nemo’s submarine Nautilus, and The Rock performing “It’s a Wonderful World” with a ukulele. It’s even in 3-D. I’m exhausted just describing it. Fun in the 1950s Disney adventure movie way. This film is available locally in 3-D. Rating: Two and a half stars. 94 minutes. (PG) “October Baby” — A college student (Rachel Hendrix) discovers that she was adopted, and in seeking her birth mother discovers she was the product of failed late-term abortion. The potential is here for a strong story, but the film depends on astounding coincidences and swings between fraught drama, low-rent comedy, and musical montages left over from old road movies. Hendrix is assured in her film debut, and veteran Jasmine Guy is superb in a cameo role where she conveniently provides the movie with its entire backstory and is even able to hand Hannah her birth mother’s business card. Rating: Two stars. 105 minutes. (PG-13) “Rampart” — A powerful, frightening performance by Woody Harrelson, as a bad cop, circa 1999, in the most corrupt police district in Los Angeles. He isn’t part of the team there; he’s a stand-alone, a loner who seems to have evil inborn as part of his nature. As he beats a

Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams star in “The Vow.” suspect and is caught on videotape, his usual ratlike instincts for escape fail him, and he begins to rot from within. One of Harrelson’s best performances. Rating: Four stars. 112 minutes. (R) “Safe House” — He must have joined “The Agency” with an eye toward excitement, exotic locales and danger. But in Capetown, a backwater as far as foreign intrigue goes, agency newcomer Matt Weston is stuck — a one-man show, running a never-used “safe house” in the C.I.A.’s real-estate portfolio. “I’m staring at four walls all day,” Matt (Ryan Reynolds) complains to his boss. Until the day he plays host to America’s “most notorious traitor,” a sell-to-thehighest-bidder rogue named Tobin Frost (Denzel Washington). Frost doesn’t want to be a “houseguest.” And a lot of ruthless and violent people want to get their hands on him in the worst way. That’s the

set-up for “Safe House,” a pulsepounding secret-agent variation on the “everybody’s out to get you” thriller formula. Well-cast, wellacted and brilliantly shot and edited, it’s a thoroughly entertaining peek into spycraft and the spies who practice it. Rating: Three stars. 115 minutes.

“The Secret World of Arrietty” — The new anime version of “The Borrowers,” titled “The Secret World of Arrietty” by screenwriter and “supervisor” Hayao Miyazaki, has the fascination with household “spirits,” the same lovely color palette and attention to detail for which his films are famous. But Miyazaki, director of “Ponyo,” “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro,” didn’t direct this Studio Ghibli film. Perhaps that is why it lacks his sense of whimsy, that little sprinkling of Miyazaki magic that

the Japanese director has given his best work over the decades. Mary Norton’s oft-filmed 60-year-old novel is about the miniature people who live in the walls and below the floorboards of old houses, creatures who “borrow” what they need from the “human beans.” The gorgeous pastels of Studio Ghibli films and famous attention to detail are much in evidence in this Hiromasa Yonebayashi film. But Miyazaki, who co-wrote the script, had nowhere to take it. Rating: Two and a half stars. 94 minutes. (G) — Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

“A Separation” — A happily married middle-class couple in Tehran have a sweet 11-year-old daughter, and his senile father also lives with them. They have agreed in principle to move abroad, where they hope their daughter’s prospects might be better. She wants to leave now; he wants to stay because of

“The Vow” — Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum play a young Chicago couple who are happily married after four years when they’re in an accident and she loses all her memories of being married to him — or even meeting him. She thinks she’s still living at home with her parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange), and engaged to Jeremy (Scott Speedman). What’s a girl to do? A well-behaved, tenderhearted date movie about impossibly nice people, but too sedate and safe. Rating: Two and a half stars. 104 minutes. (PG-13) “Wanderlust” — If Paul Rudd can’t find the humor in this comedy about uptight New Yorkers who drop out on a Georgia commune (“We prefer “intentional communit”), what chance do his castmates have? Not much. “Wanderlust,” co-starring Jennifer Aniston, Malin Akerman, Justin Theroux and Alan Alda, is a random, tedious and tone-deaf comedy, a feeble recycling of every hippie commune cliche you’ve ever heard. Rating: One and a half stars. 98 minutes. (R) — Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
