OSP report E-INNOVATION sheds light USFS air dispatch center staying in Prineville on probe of Flaherty How a Bend man made his mark on the Internet • C1

By Erik Hidle The Bulletin

REDMOND — New federal rules regarding lease agreements are keeping the U.S. Forest Service from moving its air dispatch center to the Redmond Airport. The airport currently houses several fire suppression services for the federal government. Administrative offices, the local air tanker base, a smoke jumper base, Redmond Hot Shots and the area

supply cache all work out of offices and hangars at the air field. But the air dispatch center, an interagency command center that plots how to fight fires, remains in Prineville. And it doesn’t look to be coming to Redmond any time soon. “The Forest Service came to us a while ago with the idea of moving the dispatch center to Redmond,” said City Manager David Brandt. “They want to do a lease, but un-

fortunately we don’t have a building designed that will work right now. And until someone finds a way to fund that design, we are stuck at that point.” In the past, the federal government took on the cost of a design phase. If a lease agreement was eventually reached, the cost would be folded into that contract. But an insurance policy had the federal government on the hook for the cost even if it changed its mind

on the lease agreement. That way, the city kept itself from paying for a design phase, which could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, with no tenant to move in. “And they have changed the way they do that,” Brandt said. “They don’t want to make that agreement. We would like to help them out but we can’t, with good fiduciary responsibility, take that on.” See Dispatch / A5

Everyone knows how long a minute is. And your cellphone carrier keeps close tabs on how many you have used this month. Now, in the smartphone era, more people are being forced to think about how many megabytes of data they are using. But what, exactly, is a megabyte? If a sampling of pedestrians on the streets of New York is any guide, most people have only a vague idea. One said a megabyte was “the amount of something we have to use the Internet.” Miranda Popkey, 24, was closer: “It’s a measure of how much information you store. If there are too many of them, I can’t send my email attachment.”

A megabyte is, in this context, 1,000 kilobytes — or about the size of a photo taken with a decent digital camera, or roughly one minute of a song, or a decent stack of email. Therein lies the problem: Counting things like minutes and text messages is fairly easy, but there is no intuitive or

Opposing sides use different tactics in gay-marriage fight By Lornet Turnbull The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — There was a time when gay rights supporters fought fire with fire, when they staged operations with names like “Bigot Busters” — showing up in parking lots, fairs and festivals — places where their opponents were collecting signatures with the goal of mixing it up. Now, as the campaign to put same-sex-marriage legislation on Washington state’s November ballot gets under way, those wishing to repeal it are making petitions available in hundreds of churches, businesses and private homes across the

A 1,550-page report recently released by the Oregon State Police provides new insight into the events surrounding a grand jury investigation launched last year by Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty to determine how nine job applications were released to The Bulletin. The report is the product of an OSP investigation of Flaherty’s conduct during the episode, an investigation that ultimately cleared Flaherty of criminal wrongdoing. The report includes interviews with multiple people who describe Flaherty’s determination to press ahead with a grand jury investigation over the objections of those around him and his conviction that others were conspiring Flaherty against him. In an email Friday, Flaherty did not respond to specific questions about the report, and said he considers the matter closed. “Many of the witness statements in the OSP reports are neither credible nor accurate,” Flaherty wrote. “At the Attorney General’s request, the Washington County District Attorney’s Office reviewed the OSP investigation and concluded that the grand jury investigation was appropriate and that the other allegations were frivolous.” During the nearly eight months between May 2010, when he defeated longtime District Attorney Mike Dugan, and January 2011, when he took office, Flaherty developed a cool relationship with many within the county and his own office. He advised several deputy district attorneys he did not intend to keep them around once he took over, prompting the deputies to form a union and initiating an ongoing dispute with Deschutes County over how much authority the District Attorney has to choose his own staff.

Zach Silk, campaign manager for Washington United for Marriage, a broad coalition seeking to defend the same-sex-marriage legislation, said the campaign rejected the more direct, face-to-face strategy as negative. The coalition instead has chosen to focus on urging people to show their support by completing and returning postcards available online. See Gay / A5

Colleges increasingly shun bottled water By Andrew Theen

Citing environmental concerns, colleges increasingly are banning or restricting plastic water bottles, unnerving the $22 billion packagedwater industry.

Bloomberg News

NEW YORK — Bottled water is coming under attack on college campuses. More than 90 schools, among them Brown and Harvard, are banning the sale or restricting the use of plastic water bottles, unnerving the $22 billion retail packaged-water industry in the United States. Brown, which once sold about 320,000 bottles of water a year in vending machines and campus stores, ended sales in dining halls in 2010. Harvard and Dartmouth College are installing hydration stations in new buildings to reduce trash. “The product just doesn’t make common sense,” said Sarah Alexander, 20, an environmental-studies major at Hanover, N.H.-based Dartmouth. “Companies are taking something that is freely accessible to everyone on the Dartmouth campus, packaging it in a nonreusable container and then selling it under the pretense that it is somehow better than tap water.” In response to the growing movement, the water industry recently released a video on YouTube poking fun at “Ban the Bottle,” an organization that advocates banning one-time-use plastic water bottles. The spot, which features “Star

Wars”-like music and flashbacks of antiwar demonstrations, says bottled water is a safe, convenient product that is “one of the healthiest drinks on the shelf” and that its packaging is recyclable. There “are really serious issues over here, and now you’re dealing with bottled water?” said Joe Doss, president of the International Bottled Water Association, based in Alexandria, Va. While “there are anti-bottled-water groups going from campus to campus,” Doss said he doesn’t consider it “a big threat” at this point. More than 9 billion gallons of bottled water were sold domestically last year, and the industry is growing 5.4 percent a year, according to Gary Hemphill, senior vice president of the Beverage Marketing Corp., a New York consulting firm. Sales

to colleges and universities aren’t tracked separately. The bottling industry may be worried about losing brand loyalty from college kids, said Eric Meliton, an industry analyst with Frost & Sullivan. “If they lose that access, yeah, you would see a big dropoff on that demographic,” Meliton said. College students are “on the go, they’ve got backpacks and they may not choose to use bottled water.” Reducing or eliminating plastic bottled water saves students money and has the environmental benefit of reducing the need to truck bottles across the country, said Niles Barnes, project coordinator with the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. “It’s a really tangible, sustainable activity that students can get behind,” Barnes said. More than a dozen U.S. schools have campuswide bans on the sale of plastic water bottles, he said. Some departments at Cambridge, Mass.-based Harvard have banned the purchase of bottled water for meetings. Cornell has a reduction campaign, as does Yale. The University of Pennsylvania encourages administrative offices to use hydration stations rather than bottled water.

Having a famous name can be a mixed blessing, companies find •The brands that become household names run the risk of being ‘genericized’ By Mae Anderson The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Apple is on the verge of doing what few others have: change the English language. When you have a boo-boo, you reach for a Band-Aid not a bandage. When you need to blow your nose, you ask for Kleenex, not tissue. If you decide to look up something online, you Google instead of just searching for it. And if you want to buy a tablet computer, there’s a good chance there’s only one name you’ll remember. “For the vast majority, the idea of a tablet is really captured by the idea of an iPad,’” says Josh Davis, a manager at Abt Electronics in Chicago. “They gave birth to the whole category and brought it to life.” Companies trip over themselves to make their brands household names. But only a few brands become so engrained in the lexicon that they’re synonymous with the products themselves. This socalled “genericization” can be both good and bad for companies like Apple, which must balance their desire for brand recognition with their disdain for brand deterioration.

Too well-known? It’s one of the biggest contradictions in business. Companies spend millions to create a brand. Then, they spend millions more on marketing that can have the unintended consequence of making those names so popular that they become shorthand for similar products. It’s as if people started calling station wagons Bentleys. It can diminish a brand’s reputation. “There’s tension between legal departments concerned about ‘genericide’ and marketing departments concerned about sales,” says Michael Atkins, a Seattle trademark attorney. “Marketing people want the brand name as widespread as possible and trademark lawyers worry ... the brand will lose all trademark significance.” It doesn’t happen often. In fact, it’s estimated that fewer than 5 percent of U.S. brand names become generic. Those that do typically are inventions or products that improve on what’s already on the market. The brand names then

It’s Monday, April 9, the 100th day of 2012. There are 266 days left in the year.

IN HISTORY Highlights: On April 9, 1942, during World War II, American and Philippine defenders on Bataan capitulated to Japanese forces; the surrender was followed by the notorious Bataan Death March which claimed thousands of lives. In 1865, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered his army to Union Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House in Virginia. In 1983, the space shuttle Challenger ended its first mission with a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Ten years ago: Former Arthur Andersen auditor David B. Duncan pleaded guilty in federal court in Houston to ordering the shredding of Enron documents, and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors (however, Duncan later withdrew his plea). Five years ago: Tens of thousands of Shiites marched in Iraq to demand that U.S. forces leave their country; some ripped apart American flags and tromped across a Stars and Stripes rug. One year ago: A man armed with several weapons opened fire in a crowded shopping mall in the Netherlands, killing six people before committing suicide.

Only a few brands have become synonymous with the products themselves. From left to right are Kleenex tissues; Bayer aspirin tablets; Band-Aid bandages; and a computer tablet, aka, iPad.

become so popular that they eclipse rivals in sales, market share and in the minds’ of consumers. And then they spread through the English language like the common cold in a small office. “There’s nothing that can be done to prevent it once it starts happening,” says Michael Weiss, professor of linguistics at Cornell University. “There’s no controlling the growth of language.”

Fighting back A company’s biggest fear is that its brand name becomes so commonly used to describe a product that a judge rules that it’s too “generic” to be a trademark. That means that any product — even inferior ones — can legally use the name. A brand usually is declared legally generic after a company sues another firm for using its name and the case goes to a federal court. Drug maker Bayer lost trademarks for the names “aspirin” and “heroin” this way in the 1920s. So did B.F. Goodrich, which sued to protect its trademark of “zipper” in the 1920s after the name joined the world of common nouns. Similar cases deemed “escalator” generic in 1950, “thermos” generic in 1963 and “yo-yo” generic in 1965. It’s difficult to quantify how much revenue a company loses when its brand is deemed generic. But companies worry that it breeds confusion among consumers. To prevent their names from becoming generic, some companies use marketing to reinforce their trademarks. For instance, after its Band-Aid brand name started becoming commonly used to refer to adhesive bandages, Johnson & Johnsons changed its jingle in

ads from “I’m Stuck on BandAid” to “I’m Stuck on BandAid brand.” Kleenex uses “Kleenex brand” instead of just “Kleenex” on its packaging and in marketing and places ads to remind people Kleenex is trademarked. And the company contacts some people who use Kleenex generically to re-

fer to tissue in order to correct them. “We’ve worked very hard to keep ‘Kleenex’ from going the route of ‘escalator’ and ‘aspirin,’” says Vicki Margolis, vice president and chief counsel, intellectual property and global marketing for Kimberly-Clark, which owns Kleenex.

T S 2 men arrested in Oklahoma shootings

Leaders of Pakistan, India look to mend ties • Zardari’s trip to New Delhi is hailed for its symbolic significance By Mark Magnier Los Angeles Times

By Manny Fernandez and Channing Joseph New York Times News Service

TULSA, Okla. — Late Thursday afternoon, Jacob England, 19, posted a message on his Facebook page, expressing grief — and anger — over the second anniversary of his father’s death. England’s father, Carl, was shot on April 5, 2010, at an apartment complex here, and the man who was a person of interest in the case, Pernell Jefferson, is serving time at an Oklahoma state prison. England is a Native American who has also described himself as white. Jefferson is black. “Today is two years that my dad has been gone,” England wrote, and then used a racial epithet to describe Jefferson. “It’s hard not to go off between that and sheran I’m gone in the head,” he added, referring to the recent suicide of his 24year-old fiancee, Sheran Hart Wilde. “RIP. Dad and sheran I Love and miss u I think about both of u every second of the day.” Hours later, the authorities say, England and his friend and roommate, Alvin Watts, 32, waged what city leaders believe was a racially motivated shooting rampage in the predominantly black neighborhoods of north Tulsa early Friday morning, driving through the streets in a pickup truck and randomly shooting pedestrians. Three black people were killed, and two others were wounded in the attacks. England and Watts, who is white, were arrested early Sunday morning after investigators received tips to the state’s anonymous Crime Stoppers line, the authorities said. They will face three counts of firstdegree murder, they said, and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.


NEW DELHI — Pakistan’s president arrived in India on Sunday, the first official visit one leader of the wary neighbors has paid to the other nation in seven years. No breakthroughs were announced, but both sides said the meeting was a sign of easing tensions along one of the world’s most dangerous borders. Spin doctors on both sides worked overtime to lower public expectations of the “private” visit during which Paki-

stani President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh discussed the 2008 terrorist attack on the Indian city of Mumbai, modest if expanding trade links, the disputed territory of Kashmir and efforts to bring various militants to justice. Zardari then visited a famous Muslim shrine for Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, and offered a $1 million contribution. “I am very satisfied with the outcome of this visit,” Singh said. “The relations between

India and Pakistan should become normal — that is our common desire.” The meeting was part of an apparent effort to follow the diplomatic model in place between India and China, which fought a war in 1962 over their disputed border: Put aside the most nettlesome issues for the time being and focus on building investment and trade links that benefit both sides. India and Pakistan this year approved a most-favored-nation agreement, lowering taxes that impede trade.

Although India had offered the designation to Pakistan in 1996, it wasn’t reciprocated until recently. Official twoway trade of about $2.6 billion is heavily weighted in India’s favor. Sunday’s visit was heavy on symbolism if not on substance. Zardari invited Singh for a reciprocal visit to Pakistan, which the Indian leader accepted, although no date was set. Zardari’s 23-year-old son, Bilawal, invited ruling Congress Party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi to Pakistan, which was also accepted, again with no date set.

People gather at the site of an explosion in Kaduna, Nigeria, where a suicide car bomber detonated his explosives Sunday morning after apparently turning away from attacking Nigerian churches holding Easter services, killing at least 38 people in a massive blast that rattled a city long at the center of religious, ethnic and political violence in the nation. The blast left charred motorcycles and debris strewn across a major road in Kaduna, where many gather to eat at informal restaurants and buy black-market gasoline. Nearby

hotels and homes had their windows blown out and roofs torn away by the force of the powerful explosion, which engulfed a group of motorcycle taximen. While no one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, suspicion immediately fell on a radical Islamist sect blamed for hundreds of killings in the oil-rich nation this year alone. And some fear the attack could further inflame tensions around Kaduna, a region on the dividing line between Nigeria’s largely Christian south and Muslim north.

4 police officers Republican super PAC sets sights on Obama hurt in gunfight By Jim Rutenberg and Jeff Zeleny

New York Times News Service

By Joseph Goldstein New York Times News Service

NEW YORK — The dispute began as a simple argument on the sidewalk: A couple with a baby stroller found the entrance to their home blocked by some movers. Words were exchanged. A gun was brandished. “You just got out of jail; you’re going to go back to jail,” a witness, Jusuf Koci, recalled hearing the mother tell her companion, who held the gun. Hours later, the man identified as the gunman, Nakwon Foxworth, engaged the police in a pitched close-range gunbattle early Sunday in Brooklyn, police said. Four police officers were shot; all were expected to fully recover. Foxworth was in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Foxworth, 33, fired his 9mm Browning semi-automatic handgun 12 times at the officers, the police commissioner, Raymond Kelly, said at the hospital. In the couple’s apartment, the police said they also found a sawed-off, military-style assault rifle equipped with a scope, and a defaced .22-caliber revolver. Foxworth was charged with several crimes, including attempted murder and assault on a police officer. The shootings underscored the Bloomberg administration’s continuing campaign for Congress to enact tougher gun laws.

American Crossroads, the biggest of the Republican super PACs, is planning to begin its first major anti-Obama advertising blitz of the year, a moment the Obama campaign has been girding for and another sign that the general election is starting in earnest. With an anticipated bank account of more than $200 million, officials at American Crossroads said they would probably begin their cam-

paign this month. But they said they would focus the bulk of the first phase from May to July, which they believe is a critical period for making an impression on voters, before summer vacations and the party conventions take place. Steven Law, the group’s leader, said the ads would address the challenge of unseating a president who polls show is viewed favorably even though many people disapprove of his handling of the economy. Basically, Law said, “how to dislodge voters from him.”

The ultimate goal of the Crossroads campaign, Law said, would be to create an opening to enable President Barack Obama’s defeat in November, by better connecting Americans’ disappointment with the economy, especially among crucial swing voters, to their views of the president. The Crossroads advertising push would give the campaign of Mitt Romney, the Republican front-runner, the time and cover to map out its national organization, replenish its bank account and put the finishing touches on its

Syria’s demands imperil peace plan BEIRUT — A U.N.-brokered peace plan for Syria appeared close to collapse Sunday as authorities demanded a written guarantee that rebels would lay down their arms before the government would withdraw troops from cities and towns. The statement cast serious doubt on hopes that the peace plan — the only initiative backed by Syrian allies China, Russia and Iran as well as the United Nations, the Arab League and Syria — could quell the violence stemming from a government crackdown on a year-long uprising against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. Jihad Makdissi, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, said U.N. reports that Syrian

officials had said their forces would pull back from cities by Tuesday resulted from a misunderstanding. He instead presented conditions that were not part of the six-point peace plan hashed out last month by Kofi Annan, the joint U.N. and Arab League envoy to Syria.

Mubarak ally declares candidacy CAIRO — Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s intelligence chief and vice president, Omar Suleiman, filed papers on Sunday declaring himself a presidential candidate. His entry gives Egyptians a chance to cast a vote against the revolution and for the old order. Suleiman has been considered a potential candidate for months and his formal

own long-discussed advertising plan, which will highlight the economic pain of ordinary Americans. Obama campaign aides said they would not give Romney any room to recover from what several polls show to be high unfavorable ratings. A new fusillade of commercials, Web videos and Twitter posts is painting Romney as a disconnected businessman who favors the rich and will keep in place the approach that caused the financial crisis and put an unfair burden on the middle class and the poor.

Afghanistan, U.S. reach deal on controversial night raids By Alissa J. Rubin New York Times News Service

KABUL, Afghanistan — Accelerating the transition of military responsibility to the Afghan government, the United States agreed Sunday to hand control of special operations missions to Afghan forces, including night raids, relegating U.S. troops to a supporting role and bringing the raids under Afghan judicial authority. The deal clears the way for the two countries to move ahead with a more comprehensive partnership agreement that will establish the shape of U.S. support to Afghanistan after the 2014 troop withdrawal deadline. And it resolves one of the most contentious issues for President Hamid Karzai, who faced intense domestic political pressure because of the raids’ deep unpopularity here, even as U.S. commanders had insisted on them as the linchpin of the military mission in Afghanistan. At a signing ceremony in the capital, Abdul Rahim Wardak, the Afghan defense minister, and Gen. John Allen, the U.S. commander here, hailed the agreement as a positive sign both of Afghanistan’s sovereignty and the growing abilities of its special operation forces. “This is an important step in strengthening the sovereignty of Afghanistan,” said Wardak, adding that it was “a national goal” and “a wish of the Afghan people” that raids be conducted and controlled by Afghans. The memorandum of understanding the officials signed Sunday gives Afghan forces the lead role in night raid operations against suspected insurgents, and also requires an Afghan court warrant within 72 hours of a raid. A warrant can be issued after a raid only in cases where the intelligence needed to be acted on immediately, otherwise it must be executed in advance, according to Afghan officials. Under the terms of the agreement, Afghan forces can still call U.S. troops for help and authorize them to enter Afghan residences and private compounds. Several diplomats said the most important aspect of the agreement, which goes into effect immediately, was that now the two countries could take the next steps to complete the transition to Afghan control and allow foreign forces to leave the country. “There’s still work to be done, but clearly we have some critical momentum now,” said Ryan Crocker, the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan as he left the signing ceremony.

Find It All Online entry is unlikely to shake up the race. In a recent poll by a state-financed research institution, about 9 percent of voters backed Suleiman.

Flaherty Continued from A1 Less than two months after taking office, Flaherty began a criminal investigation into the release of the job applications submitted by some of his new hires. A number of these applications contained information that should not have been released, including personal phone numbers, addresses and driver’s license numbers. County staff had provided the documents to The Bulletin in response to a public records request, and Flaherty convened a grand jury to find out how it had happened. The investigation ended with no indictments. Deschutes County Counsel Mark Pilliod wrote a letter accepting responsibility for the release of the information and agreed to pay a token fine. Months later, the OSP opened an investigation to determine whether Flaherty’s decision to convene a grand jury constituted official misconduct and whether angry outbursts described by a former employee could be considered harassment and menacing.

A new team When Flaherty took office, he brought in people he trusted. He hired former Deschutes County Sheriff Les Stiles and former Bend Police Lt. Jerry Stone, both of whom had endorsed him during the campaign against Dugan, to serve as investigators. Former Lane County District Attorney Pat Horton signed on for what was to be a limited-duration job as a management analyst, and Traci Anderson of the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office was appointed chief deputy district attorney. All four resigned within a year. Stone had at the time been dating Sharon Sweet, another investigator in the District Attorney’s Office, whose allegations of menacing and harassment against Flaherty prompted Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton to ask the state Department of Justice to investigate Flaherty’s office. Stone and Sweet were married late last year, after Flaherty eliminated Sweet’s job and Stone resigned with a note to Flaherty reading simply, “I can no longer work for you.” Stone told investigators he attended several meetings in the first few months after Flaherty took office, during which “Patrick Flaherty voiced the opinion that maybe there was a number of people that were looking to undermine his position as a district attorney, and he specifically mentioned the county administration, county council, (and) that other people were involved with them, which included Sharon Sweet.” Flaherty frequently held closed-door meetings with Stiles, Horton and Anderson, Stone told the OSP. Stone attended some of the meetings, in which Flaherty said he did not want people talking “outside the office about anything that went on in the office.” But that was difficult for employees who had worked with each other — and with some of the people Flaherty had recently fired — for 15 or 20 years, Stone said. Other employees in the office worried that the meetings would produce firings. “They just didn’t know how to act ... they’re afraid if they say something to anybody they’re gonna lose their job,” Stone said. Stone said Flaherty asked him to begin investigating his employees. “Then it kinda progressed to where he’s sure he’s got a leak, a leak outside to The Bulletin, somebody’s sending anonymous letters to the bar, the ... DMV, you know, just somebody that’s trying to undermine him from inside the office,” Stone said. “So he wanted me to go around and question everybody about these leaks.” Stone questioned a few employees, but said “it was so upsetting to them that I had people cryin’.” Though Flaherty wanted him to question “every single person in the office,” said Stone, “I talked to two people and then I went and told him I wasn’t gonna do it, I couldn’t do it, it wasn’t right, he was disrupting his whole office ....” Flaherty halted the internal investigation after a meeting with Horton, Anderson and Stiles, Stone said.

Nine job applications Deputy District Attorney Matt Nelson spent the morning of Feb. 24 in Salem at a train-

ing session on prosecuting drunken drivers. He headed back toward Central Oregon in the early afternoon arriving at the District Attorney’s Office shortly after 5 p.m. As he headed in to the building to check his email, his co-workers told him they’d recently been made aware of the release of the job applications. Nelson told OSP investigators he went to see Anderson, who, like Nelson, was among those whose applications had been sent to The Bulletin. He said she was upset. “She’d been prosecuting gang units in Portland and stuff and ... was worried about, you know, (her) children’s safety.” In her interview with the OSP, Anderson said she’d alerted Flaherty to the release of the job applications earlier in the day. Anderson told investigators she’d received an email from Pilliod, advising her of the release of the information and providing her with information on how to protect herself from identity theft. Anderson told investigators she was “... pretty blown away” by Pilliod’s email and concerned about the safety of her children, who were still living at the Portland-area address listed on her application. Anderson notified Flaherty within moments, and Flaherty convened a meeting of his staff. “We’re gonna find out why and investigate and, you know, get to the bottom of it. That, I think, was the gist of it,” Anderson told investigators, recalling Flaherty’s remarks at the meeting. “The deputies were upset, and I’ve already told you my view about it. I wasn’t alone with that, you know. A couple of our deputies are the, I call them the kids, the young kids that were hired just out of law school, and they didn’t have a whole career of putting people in prison.” One of the new hires, Deputy District Attorney Eric Marvin, said it was “disappointing” that his information was released, but he didn’t feel he’d been victimized. “I know my driver’s license number was on there but for whatever reason, I wasn’t overly concerned about the financial or security consequences,” Marvin told OSP investigators. “It just seemed rude to do something like that,” he said, noting that “I’m in a different position than, for example, Traci was or is, and so I, I did appreciate her points ....” One day after the disclosure was brought to the attention of the District Attorney’s Office, county employees began receiving subpoenas to appear before a grand jury.

Who handled the records? When Pilliod received the public records request on Feb. 22, 2011, he emailed Debbie Legg, the county’s personnel services manager, who began the process of retrieving the applications. Legg contacted human resources analyst Tracy Scott, who in turn contacted another county employee, Karen Olson, who made copies of the documents. Olson told investigators she attached a sticky note to the applications, noting that they included birthdays and other personal information, and passed them back up the chain to Legg. Legg told investigators she planned to take the applications to the legal office, where any decision on what should be redacted would be made. She was running late for a meeting, however, and asked Scott to make the delivery and to remember to alert Pilliod about the sticky note and the sensitive information. Scott told investigators she took the applications to Pilliod and pointed out the sticky note, but did not recall any additional discussion of the subject before she returned to her office. Pilliod told investigators he did not remember seeing a sticky note on the applications. He told investigators he paged through the materials, concluded they could be released, and left the applications on a desk for retrieval by a Bulletin reporter. On the morning of Feb. 24, Pilliod attended a seminar on employee privacy with Legg and Scott. He recalled one of the presenters talking about the Credit Reporting Act, and the obligations associated with the release of phone numbers and driver’s license numbers. “ ... The light started to go on and it occurred to me that probably included some of these materials,” Pilliod told investigators. Back at his office, Pilliod reviewed the law. While the

county was not prohibited from releasing the information, he learned, the information was considered exempt, meaning the county was not obligated to release it when fulfilling a public records request. Further, Pilliod learned that he was obligated to warn the people whose information was released of the potential for it to fall into the wrong hands, resulting in identity theft and damage to their credit. After confirming that The Bulletin had no interest in using or distributing the information at issue, Pilliod told investigators he began composing the email to the employees of the District Attorney’s Office, including some information about protecting themselves from identity theft. Pilliod told investigators the idea he had any desire to harm anyone in the District Attorney’s Office was “preposterous,” but acknowledged he and Flaherty read the public records laws very differently.

‘Riding the back of the tiger’ Inside the District Attorney’s Office, the people around Flaherty tried to persuade their boss that a grand jury would be a mistake, according to transcripts of interviews with OSP investigators. Horton told the OSP that Flaherty spoke of a “conspiracy” between Pilliod, The Bulletin and others in county government, but did not indicate what the conspiracy involved or how it would be uncovered by a grand jury investigation. Horton told investigators he advised Flaherty to choose his battles wisely. “I mean, if he indeed felt that there was corruption at the county level, then he should sit back and observe and try to gather enough information to either corroborate or dissuade him of that opinion, that this would not be an appropriate way in which to find out this elusive idea of corruption that he had,” Horton told investigators. “I told him that this was fraught with political peril, it was a bad decision, don’t do it. And others told him that as well.” Anderson also told investigators that she tried to persuade Flaherty to steer clear of a grand jury, even though she believed at the time — and continued to believe when interviewed by the OSP in December — that Pilliod deliberately released the applications without redacting personal information. She told OSP investigators that filing a complaint against Pilliod with the Oregon State Bar might have been a better way to resolve the dispute. A grand jury investigation would damage relationships with the county, Anderson said, and because employees of the District Attorney’s Office were the victims of the alleged wrongdoing, it would create the perception of a conflict of interest, if not an actual conflict of interest. Anderson said she, Horton, and Stiles tried to make the case against a grand jury. “He disagreed. And he went ahead anyway,” Anderson told investigators. “And he ... flat refused to believe that it was a conflict. He believed that it was not a conflict and didn’t particularly want to hear from anyone that it was.” Stiles told investigators about one meeting in which he told Flaherty he was taking a “huge risk politically,” and “even if you win this battle, you lose the war.” “... I suggested this isn’t a really good idea,” Stiles told investigators. “It’s got ‘bad’ written all over it.” Flaherty was receiving encouragement to go ahead with the grand jury from his personal attorney, Horton told investigators, though the attorney was not named in the OSP report. Horton declined to identify the attorney when interviewed Thursday. As the investigation proceeded, Horton encouraged his boss to find a way to bring it to an end. “So I kept telling Patrick ... you’ve got to extricate yourself from this,” Horton told investigators. “The longer this goes, the worse it’s gonna get for you, and you’re riding the back of the tiger. You’ve gotta get off.” Flaherty did attempt to hand the investigation over to the Oregon State Police. On March 11, 2011, OSP Capt. Mike Bloom and Detective Sgt. Chris Seber met with Flaherty, Horton and a female prosecutor whose name Bloom did not recall, according to the OSP report. Bloom told OSP investigators

that Flaherty and Horton spent roughly 40 minutes outlining the case and said they were looking at a couple of suspects. When Flaherty asked OSP to assume the investigation, “Bloom advised Flaherty that this case was something that OSP did not normally investigate and suggested the matter be referred to the Oregon Department of Justice,” according to the OSP report. Flaherty “discussed his distrust of the Attorney General and specifically of (Assistant Attorney General) Sean Riddell,” according to the report. “Flaherty did not want to refer the case to DOJ due to this mistrust as Bloom recalled.” Bloom then told Flaherty it seemed odd that Flaherty took the case to a grand jury before investigating it. “Captain Bloom explained the case would be difficult to fairly and thoroughly investigate due to the fact that there was no element of surprise, (and) therefore evidence may have been lost and potential witnesses may have already determined what their statement would be,” according to the report. “Bloom told Flaherty that he put the cart before the horse and did not think that a criminal investigation into what had been presented to the grand jury would be successful at this point.” Bloom also told investigators that he believed that the grand jury appeared to be primarily a political issue. Two weeks after convening the grand jury, Flaherty announced his intention to appoint a special prosecutor to take over the investigation. A special prosecutor was never appointed, and the investigation ended nearly two weeks later when Pilliod agreed to write a letter expressing regret for the release of the job applications, a move Horton had suggested to Flaherty. The $100 penalty paid by Pilliod to partially compensate the county for the cost of complying with the investigation, Horton said Thursday, was Flaherty’s idea. The actual cost was much higher: more than $3,000 for county employees

to locate and copy records subpoenaed by the grand jury, plus more than $70,000 for lawyers who represented Pilliod and the county’s interests during the grand jury.

Flaherty’s response and the aftermath The OSP interviewed at least 30 people during the course of the investigation, from secretaries to prosecutors and county commissioners. Flaherty was not one of them. Instead, the district attorney responded in writing to questions from the OSP, adding that he believed the investigation was unmerited and not lawful. In response to questions from investigators, Flaherty wrote that he does not believe there is a conspiracy against him, though he believes there is “widespread discomfort about the way in which I exercise my duties.” “If the goal is to not rock the boat and to keep on doing what has always been done I know I will continue to experience resistance. I do not take that personally and I do not think there is a goal to harm me, Patrick Flaherty,” he wrote. “I do think there is a desire to stop me from re-establishing the integrity of the District Attorney’s Office. But that has more to do with other people’s fear of loss of power that they should never have possessed than it has to do with anything about me personally.” Horton said Thursday that when he and others in the District Attorney’s Office were arguing against a grand jury investigation last year, they were operating with a different set of facts than Flaherty. While many of Flaherty’s advisers had only been on the job for a few weeks, he said, Flaherty had spent the last several months dealing with the county and may have had a different sense of the relationships between himself and those responsible for the records release. “The rest of us came in without an appreciation, perhaps, of the history that existed at the county level with all of these different people and all of these different components,” he said. “Patrick did, and therefore

Patrick, I think, had certainly a better historical perspective of what was going on and why than some of us did.” Ultimately, as the elected district attorney, the decision to proceed was Flaherty’s alone, Horton said. Stiles said Friday he advised against the grand jury as it would be costly and timeconsuming. However, he was comfortable with Flaherty’s decision to proceed. Like Horton, he’s unclear what Flaherty was referring to when he talked about conspiracies and corruption within county government. “I didn’t see that and I’m not aware of any,” Stiles said. “He was legally and lawfully correct in convening the grand jury in my opinion, and for many reasons my suggestion was ‘don’t go there.’” Stiles told OSP investigators Flaherty was “obsessed” with loyalty and that he left his job with the District Attorney’s office because Flaherty wouldn’t listen to him. Thomas Howes, who served as Deschutes County District Attorney in the early 1980s and worked briefly for Flaherty last year, said Friday that though he did not advise his boss against convening the grand jury, the matter needed to be investigated, and the grand jury was one of many ways Flaherty could have proceeded. If there was a lesson to be learned from the episode, Flaherty suggested in his response to OSP, it was that he should have pursued the investigation and prosecution of Pilliod to its conclusion. “Hindsight, they say, is 2020,” Flaherty wrote. “If I had allowed the criminal charges to be brought and Mr. Pilliod had been made to answer for them in a court of law instead of in the arena of politics, I believe that the truth of what I say would have been established beyond a reasonable doubt. That type of investigation and bringing to justice is why I am serving as District Attorney.” — Reporter: 541-617-7829, — Reporter: 541-383-0387,

Brandt said the city has applied for grant monies and is still working with the Forest Service on how to move forward. A new lease at the airport would be a financial boon for the airport’s enterprise fund and that is an appetizing proposal for the city as it pushes for more jobs and

development. “If we can find a way to secure our investment we would definitely move forward on it,” Brandt said. Lisa Clark, a spokeswoman for the Forest Service, said she was unsure of the specifics surrounding the holdup in a contract but did confirm Brandt’s account. “The Prineville facility is a little old, and it doesn’t meet the needs of what we do in the summer when we have fires going on in the area,” Clark said. “We want to look at upgrading and centralizing our services

remainder of the campaign.” They have until July 6 to gather 241,153 signatures. Pidgeon said his campaign is advocating people sign both I-1192 and R-74. However, most signature gatherers for R-74 are not circulating petitions for I-1192 because campaign organizers believe it would be too confusing to ask those who oppose gay marriage to vote “yes” on an initiative and “no” on the referendum. Silk, of Washington United, said his campaign is hoping to collect 120,577 postcards from supporters and their families and friends — matching the number of valid signatures their opponents need to collect for R-74. He’s concerned that scattered efforts by gay rights supporters not associated with Washington United, while well-intentioned, may be confusing. For example, in addition to a Decline to Sign Referendum 74 website, there’s also an Approve Referendum 74 Facebook page — the title of which could confuse people now, during the signaturegathering phase. (If same-sex marriage opponents do collect enough signatures to get the measure on the ballot, voters in November will be asked to approve or reject the new law.) The potential confusion is the very reason Silk said the campaign didn’t want to participate in a decline-to-sign effort. But Steven Puvogeo, who runs the Decline to Sign website, said he thinks it is shortsighted not to try to sway peo-

ple who might be on the fence. While the issue was still being debated in the Legislature earlier this year, Puvogeo, an Aberdeen resident who describes himself as a not-hardleft Democrat, said he bought several domain names — ending in .com and .org — that incorporated the phrase Referendum 74 and Referendum 73 and even some Referendum 75s, so he could direct those searching for information on the referendum. He encourages visitors to his site to post a decline-to-sign image on their Facebook page so their friends may “like” it, and he directs to Washington United’s main website those seeking to donate. Washington United, he said, “abandoned the petition process when in reality (the numbers are) likely very close.” He pointed out that Referendum 71, which sought to undo the state’s domestic-partnership law three years ago, barely made the ballot. As part of his own personal decline-to-sign campaign, Paul Thomasson obtained names and email addresses of those who signed R-71 — voters he believes would also be inclined to sign R-74. He wrote an impassioned personal story and emailed it to hundreds of them, with no idea what to expect in return. He heard back from 72 of them and received a phone call, which he said resulted in a 30-minute conversation with a Mormon. “I think I at least got him to think about it,” Thomasson said.

Gay Continued from A1 “We take them at their word that they will raise enough money to get this on the ballot,” Silk said of the opposing side. “We wanted to run a positive campaign.” On its website, Preserve Marriage Washington, the campaign trying to defeat the same-sex-marriage law, said it has collected 4,583 of the 150,000 signatures it needs by June 6; at least 120,577 of those must be valid for the measure to make it onto the November ballot. The site links to a number of permanent locations — churches, businesses and private homes — where people can go to sign petitions. Additionally, campaign volunteers are collecting signatures at political events across the state, said campaign manager Joseph Backholm. Petitions are likely to show up in church vestibules and foyers and be passed down the aisle during Sunday services. In the three weeks or so Referendum 74 has been in circulation, Backholm said the campaign has received requests from 1,500 churches across the state, exhausted the first 50,000 petitions and filled orders for thousands more. “We’ve got history on this issue ... it’s not totally new,” Backholm said. “People are a lot more engaged, and we have a lot more people involved than in 2009. It’s reasonable to think we can get this done with a really organized, wellrun effort.” The campaign, backed by the National Organization for Marriage, does not have paid signature gatherers — though Backholm said he’s not opposed to the idea. “We’ll do what it takes — legally and ethically — to get on the ballot,” he said. Separately, gay-marriage opponents are gathering signatures for another ballot measure — Initiative 1192 — which would reaffirm the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman.

Rocket ready at launch pad By Jean H. Lee The Associated Press

TONGCHANG-RI, North Korea — North Korean officials have moved all three stages of a long-range rocket into position for a controversial launch, vowing to push ahead with their plan in defiance of international warnings against violating a ban on missile activity. The Associated Press was among foreign news agencies allowed a firsthand look Sunday at preparations under way at the Sohae Satellite Station in northwestern North Korea. North Korea announced plans last month to launch an observation satellite using a three-stage rocket during midApril celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the birth of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung. The U.S., Japan, Britain and other nations have urged North Korea to cancel the launch, warning that firing the rocket would violate U.N. resolutions and North Korea’s promise to refrain from engaging in nuclear and missile activity. North Korea maintains that the launch is a scientific achievement intended to im-

Data Continued from A1 Even the most sophisticated of mobile customers can be tripped up — people like Paul DeBeasi, a research vice president at Gartner specializing in wireless technology. He said that he once streamed a Netflix movie to his iPad and was charged extra for exceeding his data plan limit. DeBeasi did the math and found that watching two hours of a standard-definition Netflix video consumes two gigabytes — or 2,000 megabytes — of data. “Even if you’re just watching a standard-definition movie and you’re only watching five movies in a month, it’s costing you $100 just to watch those five movies,” he said. DeBeasi suggested using Wi-Fi networks whenever possible, as this does not run up your carrier’s data meter. A vast majority of smartphone owners do not come near their data limits, many studies say. But data use is predicted to climb considerably over the next few years. Cisco, the networking company, recently published a study showing that mobile data more than doubled in 2011, and it predicts that by 2016 it will have grown by a factor of 18.

The 4G effect Faster fourth-generation or 4G networks are driving that increase. The faster speeds encourage customers to use more data-intensive applications like video, so a smartphone on a 4G network is likely to generate 50 percent more traffic than it would on a slower one, Cisco says. The 4G-ready model of the latest iPad is potentially a data hog, given that its big, extra-high-resolution screen makes high-definition video streams especially tempting. And soon your personal data plan may not be the only one you will have to worry about. Verizon and AT&T have said they are working on data plans that can be shared among multiple devices, similar to family plans for cellphones. That means parents will not only have to keep an eye on the number of text messages and phone calls their children are burning through, but also the amount of video, music and games they are streaming over the cellular network. Michael Weinberg, senior staff lawyer of Public Knowledge, a nonprofit group that advocates more transparency in the billing from telecommunications companies, goes as far as to question why smartphone customers even have to pay more to use more data. He said the carriers have not provided evidence that limiting the amount of data a person uses reduces congestion. He added that there was a disconnect between what the carriers’ advertisements say and what customers can really do with their data allowances. “There’s a problem with understanding exactly what the data means in the real world, and also matching up some of the advertising that networks do with the actual reality,”

Weinberg said. “You have these ads with people doing things like Facebook and watching videos, and you realize how quickly you can burn through it.”

Keeping tabs Public Knowledge hosts a website called What is My Cap? that explains to people how much video and music they can enjoy before they hit their data limits for each carrier. AT&T and Verizon offer different tiers of data plans. AT&T, for example, charges $20 for 300 megabytes of data on its 3G network, $30 for three gigabytes or $50 for five. Customers who go over the limits on the costlier plans are charged $10 for each extra gigabyte. T-Mobile USA prices its data, minutes and text messages as a single package; one of its plans includes unlimited voice and text messages and two gigabytes of high-speed data for $60 a month; once customers exceed that, their connections are slowed. Similar to T-Mobile, Sprint prices its data, minutes and text messages as a single package, with plans starting at $70 a month. It still offers unlimited data but charges an extra $10 a month for it as a “premium.” Some cellphone users still have older “unlimited” plans from carriers other than Sprint — but AT&T and Verizon enforce throttling, or slowing of data speeds, for customers who they determine are using the most.

Kept in the dark? Schwark Satyavolu, chief executive of Truaxis, a company that offers tools for consumers to manage their utility bills, said it was in the best interest of carriers like AT&T and Verizon to keep consumers in the dark. “They make more money if they don’t inform you of anything,” Satyavolu said. “Their interest is in not informing you and having you go over.” AT&T and Verizon dispute that, saying they offer several ways for customers to monitor their data. For example, each has a website with a data calculator so people can see how much data a specific activity uses. Verizon customers can register with a service called My Verizon to get alerts when they have reached a certain percentage of their monthly data allowance. “We do our best to provide the tools customers need to manage their wireless services,” Brenda Raney, a Verizon spokeswoman, said by email. “There is no sustainable business model based on customer confusion.” AT&T customers also can check how much data they use online. On its website, AT&T says it alerts customers when they approach their data limit — but in some cases, as when they are watching a movie, users could miss an alert. “We’ve gone to great lengths to make it as easy as possible for our customers to understand how much data they are using at any given time,” said Emily Edmonds, an AT&T spokeswoman.

vehicles,” Jang Myong Jin, general manager of the launch facility, said during a tour, citing the U.N. space treaty. “No matter what others say, we are doing this for peaceful purposes.”

Experts say the Unha-3 rocket slated for liftoff between April 12 and 16 could also test long-range missile technology that might be used to strike the U.S. and other targets.

Nobel winner barred from Israel over poem McClatchy Newspapers JERUSALEM — Israel’s interior minister Sunday barred German author Gunter Grass from entering the country, in response to a new poem in which the Nobel laureate called Israel’s undeclared nuclear arsenal a threat to world peace. The case was the latest of several in recent years in which Israel has refused entry to controversial figures critical of its policies. Grass Interior Minister Eli Yishai said in a written statement that Grass’ poem, published Wednesday, “is an attempt to fan the flames of hatred against Israel and the Jewish people, and thus promote the idea with which he was publicly affiliated in the past when he wore the SS uniform.” Grass disclosed in 2006 that he was drafted toward the end of World War II to serve in the Nazi Waffen SS unit. A spokesman for Yishai said that was the technical basis for the entry ban. “If Gunter wishes to contin-

ue propagating his distorted and false works, I suggest he do so from Iran, where he will find a supportive audience,” said Yishai, the leader of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party. Grass’ poem, titled “What Must Be Said,” was published in the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung, provoking Israeli condemnations and criticism in Germany, where the memory of the Holocaust constrains public debate about Israel and infuses the relationship between the two countries. Referring to Israeli threats of military action against Iran’s nuclear program, which Tehran says is for peaceful purposes, Grass warned against “the alleged right to first strike that could annihilate the Iranian people ... because in their territory, it is suspected, a bomb is being built.” In the poem, Grass, 84, said he had remained silent about Israel’s nuclear capability because of fear that he would be labeled an anti-Semite.

LOCAL BRIEFING Highs in the 60s expected Weather for the region is expected to start off slightly warmer than average this week, then dip to temperatures normal for this time of year. Temperatures today could reach a high near 63 degrees with partly sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.

State may cut back on testing By Patrick Cliff The Bulletin

Beginning next school year, Oregon students in elementary and middle school may have fewer chances to take and pass state standardized tests. Changes to Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills — or OAKS — were already in the works, including

a requirement that districts receive parental approval to retest students who have already met standards. After an Oregon Department of Education recommendation made last month, OAKS may be offered in third through eighth grade just twice next year rather than up to three times. The number of high school tests

will remain at three. ODE made the recommendation, which the state Board of Education may approve later this month, so schools could get used to the schedule for new standardized tests that begin in 2014-15. The new tests, called Smarter Balanced, will likely be offered once toward the end of each school year. Like

OAKS, the Smarter Balanced tests are summative, meaning they are meant to measure how much a student has learned in a certain subject over a year. Unlike OAKS, testing will not be allowed until spring, when students have had a chance to learn the material upon which they’re being tested. See Testing / B2

Mary Louise Hilts, left, and husband Bryan Hilts, both of Bend, ski down a run near Red Chair in search of a keg hidden for the Deschutes Brewery Easter Keg Hunt at Mt. Bachelor on Sunday morning. What the Hilts didn’t know was that the empty keg had already been found, along with a promise that it would be filled with beer at the brewery.

• Snowriders scour the slopes at Mt. Bachelor for a Deschutes keg to win a prize By Ben Botkin The Bulletin

MT. BACHELOR — Skiers scoured the slopes of Mt. Bachelor on Sunday, looking for an elusive, but empty, beer keg. The event offered a holiday twist on the traditional Easter egg hunt: The Deschutes Brewery Easter Keg Hunt at Mt. Bachelor. There was no beer — or Easter candy — inside the keg, only the

promise that the winner would receive a $120 gift certificate for food and drinks at Deschutes Brewery. The event’s organizers provided keg hunters with hourly clues via Facebook and Twitter. Drew Jackson, interactive services coordinator at Mt. Bachelor, offered the first clue late Saturday to whet the interest of keg hunters. “Hunters don’t need to ride the 9,000foot lift to the top of the mountain.”

From there, hourly clues starting at 8 a.m. Sunday became more specific to help participants narrow down the search area, Jackson said. One clue, for example, helped hunters rule out the Cinder Cone — last year’s location — as a spot for the keg. Another clue showed a photo of a view of the Three Sisters from the top of a ski lift.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office responded Sunday afternoon to a report of two injured snowmobilers near Sparks Lake. Authorities say William Myers, 42 of Bend, was operating a two-person snowmobile west of Mount Bachelor — with Dean Richards, 62 of Portland, as a passenger — and was unaware of his proximity to Fall Creek, which flows perpendicular to a nearby trail. The snowmobile traveled over a snow embankment along the edge of the creek and crashed into the bank on the other side, throwing both Myers and Richards from the vehicle and into the water, the sheriff’s office said. Myers was reportedly an experienced snowmobiler with knowledge of the area, the sheriff’s office said. He told the deputy he left the trail to cool off the snowmobile on softer ground. Myers was not wearing a helmet and estimated his speed at about 40 mph, the sheriff’s office said. Myers and Richards were taken by AirLink to St. Charles Bend with non-life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said. Authorities don’t believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation. The hospital didn’t have any information about Myers or Richards’ condition Sunday night. — Bulletin staff reports

2 Democrats vie for Democrats compete for state attorney post chance to unseat Walden By Lauren Dake The Bulletin

SALEM — The race to fill the state’s top attorney spot is between two Democratic candidates who tout long, varied careers in public service. Dwight Holton — the son of a former Virginia governor and the state’s former top fed-

eral prosecutor — faces Ellen Rosenblum, who has worked as an attorney, federal prosecutor and judge in the state for more than 30 years. There is no Republican candidate, so the race will essentially be determined in the May primary. See State attorney / B5

WASHINGTON — Two Democrats hope to unseat Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, in the race for Congress in Oregon’s 2nd district. But before one of them can take on Walden, Joyce Segers, of Ashland, and

John Sweeney, of Portland, must face each other in the May 15 primary. Walden, a seven-term incumbent, is unopposed in the Republican primary. Segers, 62, owned a medical billing company before selling it in 2008. See 2nd District / B2

Continued from B1 Schools gain only so much by giving what should be an end-of-year test in winter, according to Lora Nordquist, Bend-La Pine Schools’ chief academic officer of elementary programs. “(With Smarter Balanced) you wouldn’t be testing on what students had not been exposed to. If you hadn’t taught a concept and students don’t get the answer right, that tells you nothing,” Nordquist said. Oregon is one of more than two dozen states that will use Smarter Balanced tests, designed to measure student proficiency of Common Core State Standards. All but five states — Alaska, Texas, Nebraska, Minnesota and Virginia — have adopted the common standards. The other common core states are using a different test. As states implement the new standards and testing, schools across the country will be able to measure themselves against each other. “We will be on a common scale,” said Doug Kosty, an assistant superintendent with ODE. Earlier this year, ODE polled a broad section of people involved with schools, from parents to superintendents. A majority in each group supported limiting tests to two opportunities per year. Nearly half of parents who responded backed trimming tests to once a year. In both cases, superintendents were less enthusiastic than any other group — including principals and teachers — about reducing test-taking opportunities.

Opponents of changes

ELECTION INFORMATION Oregon’s primary election will take place May 15. • New voters to Oregon must register to vote by April 24. • Current voters must update their registration in writing if their residence or mailing address has changed.

People who opposed changes tended to do so for two reasons, according to Holly Carter, an analyst at ODE. Some wanted to be sure students had another chance to retest if they simply had a bad day. Others worried that OAKS was used as a formative test, or a midyear checkup, which meant changes would limit how schools could judge student progress during the year. Reducing testing opportunities to twice annually will

accommodate both those concerns, according to ODE. When Smarter Balanced is offered, those tests will likely allow for retesting in “bad day” situations, such as a student being sick. The new tests are also likely to include formative tests, though those will be different than the final test given in spring. Kosty said it is not clear how those earlier assessments will look. Smarter Balanced states are working to define when a student can be retested, according to Kosty. The stakes can be particularly high in places like Oregon, where proficiency is tied to high school graduation.

Diploma requirements A high school senior in Oregon, for instance, cannot earn a diploma this year if he has not shown reading proficiency either by passing the OAKS test or through an alternative assessment. Next year, that requirement expands to writing and, in the following year, to math. Because of those requirements, the high school OAKS test will not be reduced, Carter said. Even though students can prove proficiency in ways other than OAKS, passing a test is how most students will meet the requirement, according to Carter. “We didn’t want to inadvertently throw up road blocks that would get in the way of students meeting the requirements,” she said. Vicki Van Buren, Bend-La Pine’s chief academic officer of secondary programs, said adjusting to reduced OAKS tests should not be a problem. When Smarter Balanced replaces OAKS, though, other tests should be given early in the school year to measure student progress. Perhaps the biggest challenge will be scheduling, Van Buren said. Some of Smarter Balanced exams will be computer-based, and the tighter testing schedule means the district will have to be methodical about scheduling tests. “We’re spending a lot of time thinking about schedules,” she said.

2nd District Continued from B1 If elected, Segers said she will fight efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. She largely supports the controversial health care law because of components that provide coverage for people with previous conditions and keep students on their parents’ coverage until age 26. It would be a mistake to repeal it without a replacement plan in place, she said. “I don’t think it’s a perfect bill; however, it’s something that’s a good start,” she said. Segers would also like to see the expansion of the Project REconomy program, a nonprofit based in southern Oregon that looks for legal ways to prevent foreclosures for homeowners. The interrelation between foreclosure and unemployment is one of the biggest challenges for the district, she said, noting that Oregon routinely ranks in the top 10 states in the country for foreclosures. Many people who are under water on their mortgages can’t afford to hire attorneys, and having legal services provided would be a big help, she said. Another priority for Segers would be repealing Citizens United, the infamous 2010 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that allows corporations and unions to make unlimited campaign expenditures on behalf of candidates for office. “We have to at least take the money out of politics and have reform about undisclosed funds that are coming in and how they are being used,” she said. “We really lost what our true democracy is about. … I think a lot of people are disenfranchised about voting, because they don’t believe it is going to count.” Sweeney, 72, a retired Portland parks department employee and former captain in the Oregon

Army National Guard, said one of his top priorities would be reforming the tax code. He would institute what he calls a 20-5-5 plan, with 20 percent being the rate everyone pays on wages, commissions and winnings. Retirement and investment income would be taxed at 5 percent, and businesses would also pay a 5 percent rate. “One of the things that most people agree with the tax system is they don’t know what’s going to happen” from one year to the next, he said. He would also “go through the regulations and start analyzing to see which ones are disruptive,” because some regulations are contradictory. “That would reduce the size of the Internal Revenue Service and the federal government,” he said. Additionally, Sweeney would reduce the age at which people may begin to collect Social Security to 60. The goal is to get more people to retire earlier, so that more jobs are available to young people, he said. One of the unintended consequences of raising the retirement age is that crime goes up, he said, because there are fewer jobs

available to young people. “The best crime-fighting tool there is is jobs,” he said. Having people retire younger would also lead to an increase of volunteerism, he said, noting that most people who volunteer do it in their 50s and 60s. Sweeney would also rejuvenate America’s space program, which has been reduced in recent years. “We need to re-establish our space program,” he said. “Relying on someone else to take us into space is not a good idea.” Sweeney suggested that the military could refit its intercontinental ballistic missiles to target comets, asteroids and other near-earth objects that could potentially collide with the earth. Segers challenged Walden in 2010 and received 26 percent of the vote to Walden’s 74 percent. — Reporter: 202-662-7456,

Task force uncovers bootlegging ring The Associated Press CENTRAL POINT — Detectives say they are building a case against at least four Oregonians suspected of selling pirated computer software and DVDs of TV shows. A task force from Southern Oregon agencies has made undercover buys and searched the homes of suspects, The Medford Mail Tribune reports, but nobody has been arrested. The detectives say the scheme involves counterfeit goods that are imported and then sold nationwide on sites such as Craigslist and eBay. The task force leader, Lt. Josh Moulin of Central Point, says the DVDs of shows such as “NCIS,” “Family Guy” and “Bones” work. But he says the software such as pirated copies of Microsoft Office doesn’t have the licensing numbers that would allow users to run it. Task force members have acquired transaction receipts from West Coast states, Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee. Oregon transactions typi-

Second ‘bath salts’ arrest made in Medford By Chris Conrad Mail Tribune (Medford)

Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement officers unknowingly made their first “bath salts” case last year when they arrested alleged cocaine and hallucinogenic mushroom dealers. In October 2011, MADGE investigators served a search warrant at a home in Medford. They found 4 ounces of cocaine, Psilocybin mushrooms, scales, packaging and $808 in cash believed to be proceeds from drug trafficking. In addition, the investigators found a 7-gram bag containing an unknown white powder. “At first we didn’t know what it was,” Medford police Lt. Brett Johnson said. “We seized it and turned it over to the Oregon State Police lab.” On Feb. 6, the OSP lab reported this powder was, in fact, Methylone, also known as bath salts. Bath salts is the term for a designer drug that has become increasingly popular over the past few years. News stories from across the country have reported the bizarre and sometimes dangerous behavior exhibited by bath-salts users. The drug often is referred to as “legal Ecstasy” in user reviews on websites where it is sold. The effects are commonly listed as euphoria and hallucinations. Local doctors have treated bath-salts users. They say the drug can cause serious mental instability in patients and can lead to permanent brain damage. “We knew it was out there, but this is the first time we’ve been able to link it to someone local,” Johnson said. On Wednesday, the department made its second bath-salts case on a home in the 400 block of Mace Road. A Medford officer investigated a report of a suspicious vehicle parked on Mace Road. When the officer spoke to the three people inside he saw marijuana in the car. The officer then found bath salts in the driver’s shirt pocket. Arrested was David Alexander Ortiz, 18, of Reno, Nev., on a charge of possession of bath salts. The Oregon Pharmacy Board declared bath salts an illegal drug last April. Until then, the drug was available at various stores throughout the state. It was most common in businesses that sold pipes and assorted marijuana glassware. A package of bath salts sells for around $40.

cally were in person, for cash and in large shopping center parking lots, Moulin said. He estimated at least $40,000 worth of transactions among at least 100 customers have taken place in Oregon alone.

“I believe it’s going to be much more than that,” Moulin said. “We should have a better picture of stuff in a week or two. We’ve just got a lot of stuff to sift through.” Buyers who believe they

have inadvertently purchased pirated media on sites such as eBay and Craigslist can fill out a form at www.hightechcops. com. A task force member will contact victims for interviews. It’s difficult to tell the counterfeit goods from storebought ones, Moulin said. The shrink wrap appears professional, and prices are nearly retail. “It’s surprisingly good (quality),” Moulin said. “These were professionally made. People just have to be very cautious.” The investigation started more than a year ago when several Rogue Valley residents reported fraudulent online transactions to task force members. The suspects are in Eugene and Salem, police said. Customers have been identified in several Rogue Valley cities, as well as Eugene, Bend, Hood River, Salem and Portland. The task force received a $196,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice this year so it could devote more time and resources to the case.

3 offenders blamed for spike in Ashland low-level crime rate By Vickie Aldous Ashland Daily Tidings

Three offenders almost single-handedly accounted for a spike in lower level crimes such as theft in Ashland during 2011, Ashland Police Chief Terry Holderness said. The three seem to have learned that they will be released quickly after being arrested because of overcrowding at Jackson County Jail, Holderness said. Violent crime in town was flat at 25 reported cases in town in both 2010 and 2011. Theft and burglary went up from 558 reported cases in 2010 to 689 reported cases in 2011 — an increase of 131 cases, according to the Ashland Police Department’s annual crime report that was delivered to the Ashland City Council this week. Three people accounted for the bulk of the increase in lower level crime, Holderness said. He declined to name the people, citing APD policy

that bars the release of such information. Holderness said the top offender in Ashland accounted for more than 50 reported cases in town in 2010 and into the first months of this year. Cases involved eating meals at restaurants and then leaving without paying, thefts from cars and thefts of bicycles, Holderness said. By stealing items with a value of $50 or less, the top offender is generally able to avoid spending much time at Jackson County Jail, which regularly releases low level offenders because of overcrowding, Holderness said. The top offender had a history of only one theft arrest in 2008, but then his thefts skyrocketed in 2011. “He starts doing it all the time. It’s almost like he figured it out that there were not going to be negative consequences,” Holderness said. He said Ashland’s top offender was released one day from Jackson County Jail and was arrested later that afternoon for suspected theft.

Holderness declined to speculate on whether the person had developed a drug addiction, alcohol problem or other issue that may have contributed to the change in behavior. The top offender and thirdranked offender in Ashland for 2011 were not homeless, he said. The second ranked offender was homeless. That person has been sent to state prison for a robbery in another jurisdiction, Holderness said. Holderness said the Jackson County Jail and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department are in a difficult position because they need to keep the most dangerous offenders in jail. Holderness met with the Sheriff’s Department on to discuss the department’s jail release policies regarding repeat low-level offenders. “We’re hoping they can rework their release policy to look at the impact individuals are having on communities,” Holderness said. “It’s a difficult balancing act. They’re trying to work with us on strategies for their policies.”

Pendleton woman, 96, joins the FFA PENDLETON — A Pendleton woman is now an honorary member of Future Farmers of America decades after being denied entry into the group as a 14-year-old girl. The 96-year-old Margaret Troedson donned the agriculture group’s distinctive blue jacket after the Pendleton FFA chapter awarded her an honorary degree Saturday night. The East Oregonian reports Troedson wanted to take agriculture classes as a teen, but first had to join the school’s FFA chapter. The high school principal in Redmond, where she was living, denied her request for membership to the group, thereby barring her from agriculture classes. Troedson says at the time no girl had asked to take agriculture classes and the principal thought it would be too distracting. She says girls today should proudly call themselves farmers.

Medical pot clinic to open in defiance RAINIER — A Rainier man says he still plans to open a new marijuana collective even though city of-

ficials denied him a business license. Nick Clark plans to turn an old video store into a resource center for medical marijuana in this city located across the Columbia River from Longview, Wash. Clark runs a similar center in Astoria. He plans to open April 17, even though he’ll face a $500 daily fine. Rainier Mayor Jerry Cole says the city doesn’t want to be liable for issuing a business license in an illegal matter. KATU-TV reports it’s against the law in Oregon to sell or dispense medical marijuana. But Clark says patients reimburse the grower for costs at his resource center so they’re technically not buying it.

State employees face survey penalty SALEM — Nearly 10,000 state workers who enrolled

a new health program face a monthly penalty because they didn’t fill out a required online survey by the deadline. The Public Employee Benefit Board says about 14 percent of the nearly 70,000 people who agreed to participate in the program did not complete a health assessment by the March 31 deadline. Starting in July, they’ll have to pay a monthly surcharge of $17.50 per person. The Statesman Journal in Salem reports the board provides medical insurance to all Oregon state workers. It began the wellness program to control costs by promoting a healthy lifestyle among members. To spur participation, the board decided that people who didn’t take part would pay a monthly surcharge. A union representative says some workers had technical problems with the survey.

Medford police: Meth ‘still king’ in Rogue Valley By Chris Conrad Mail Tribune (Medford)

Heroin and cocaine have been grabbing headlines in Medford recently — including $1 million worth of heroin seized on a bus traveling through town in February — but they are a long way from topping the drug market here. “Meth is still king,” said Medford police Lt. Brett Johnson. Johnson, who is a supervisor for the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team, makes his point by dumping a pile of crystal shards on a table in the department’s evidence room. This batch of methamphetamine was seized from a suspect who has since been convicted on felony drug charges. “There’s probably just over a gram in this one bag,” Johnson said. “Check out the quality of this stuff. You know how gasoline comes in regular and premium? This is premium.” Johnson puts on plastic gloves and holds up a large wedge of high-end meth. The shards resemble bits of foggy glass. “We never used to see this kind of meth in the valley,” he said. “It used to be the powder stuff that was low quality.” Much of that particular brand of meth was created in grimy labs across the state. Meth “chemists” would combine an array of chemicals, some of which could unclog your bathroom drain, with pseudoephedrine, an over-thecounter cold medicine. The result would be a white or brown powder that turned into sludge in the chamber of a meth pipe.

Death knell for labs However, a 2005 law calling for the regulation of pseudoephedrine sounded the death knell for meth labs in Oregon. Pills containing pseudoephedrine have been available by request only and kept behind pharmacy counters since July 2006. A government-issued identification card, such as a driver’s license, is required to buy it. One meth lab has been

found in Jackson County in recent years — a small lab discovered earlier this year on a shabby property near Sams Valley. “It could have been three or four years old,” Johnson said. “It’s not worth doing anymore.” Just because the labs are gone doesn’t mean the market for meth has disappeared.

Mexican super labs Never ones to pass up on a lucrative business venture, large drug cartels based in Mexico have filled the void left by the pseudoephedrine law. These “super labs,” as Johnson calls them, produce most of the meth moving up and down Interstate 5. “Most of what we see comes from south of the border,” Johnson said. “And it’s all crystal, not powder.” In 2011, MADGE seized about 22 pounds of meth — a 134 percent increase from the previous year. Johnson said a gram of meth sells for about $100 in Medford. It’s slightly cheaper than heroin, which runs between $120 and $150 per gram based on quality. Johnson said he was surprised by overdose death numbers released this week by the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office. Nine deaths related to methamphetamine, heroin or cocaine — or a combination of two or more of the drugs — were recorded last year in Jackson County, up 200 percent from the three reported in 2010. Of those nine deaths, eight were caused by methamphetamine or a combination involving it. In 2010, two of the three deaths were methamphetamine-related. “We normally don’t see a high death rate from meth overdose,” he said. Johnson said that while meth remains the drug of choice in the area, it could be supplanted sometime in the near future. “We are seeing a steady rise in heroin and cocaine around here,” he said. “Some people have been turning away from meth for heroin.”

Doug Whitsett the right choice for Republicans


ncumbency is not the be-all and end-all of politics, to be sure: A well-qualified challenger can overcome any advantage a sitting lawmaker can claim. In state Senate

District 28, however, Sen. Doug Whitsett’s primary election challenger, Karl Scronce, does not offer voters an improvement in representation. District 28 is geographically one of the largest in the state, stretching from Jackson County to Lakeview and from the California border north through Jefferson County. Doug Whitsett, a veterinarian who grew up in Central Oregon, has been its senator since 2004. He is a fiscal conservative, a man who believes the state would be better served if Oregonians spent more of their own money, rather than having lawmakers do it for them. He argues that if government revenues grow, they must do so because more Oregonians are working and they’re making more money in the process. Whitsett has spent his time in the Senate learning as much about the state’s budget as possible. He knows, for example, that when teachers complain, correctly, that K-12 education has lost lottery dollars, it’s in part because more lottery money is going to pay interest on lottery bonds than before. His work has paid off: Whitsett currently serves on the joint Ways and Means Committee and is a member of its general government subcommittee.

Scronce, meanwhile, appears to be driven largely by one issue, the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement, which, if it ever is approved by Congress, will provide the blueprint for divvying up badly needed water among wildlife and agricultural interests. Scronce is a retired farmer whose livelihood depended in part on a reliable water supply. He’s a far stronger supporter of the agreement than is Whitsett, who is tepid at best on the subject. Whitsett’s district is far larger than the Klamath Basin, however, and some of what’s been included in the agreement would be hard on those in other parts of the district. Whitsett has proved himself a hard worker in Salem, a man who has strived to create the kind of cross-party relationships that are necessary if a member of the minority party hopes to get much done. Scronce, while both pleasant and bright, does not offer Republicans an improvement over the man who represents them now. They should give the party’s nomination to Whitsett.

Don’t restrict IB transfers in Bend-La Pine District


tudents who want to transfer to Bend High School because of its International Baccalaureate program are having a hard time getting approval. This in a district that touts individual choice and says it encourages students to take the most rigorous course load. Summit High received about 45 of the transfer requests while Mountain View had about 22. At Summit, they were rejected, but about 16 were later approved after the rejections were challenged. At Mountain View, families were invited to learn more about Mountain View programs, and about six have been approved after meetings and discussions. Transfers for IB had previously been easy to get, but administrators are worried about a brain drain from Summit and Mountain View if too many students move. They’ve started Advanced Placement diploma programs there to try to stem the flow. That’s a good idea, but no rea-

son to prevent students and families from making the choice that seems right to them. In fact, even once the AP diploma is well established, the programs are different enough that some students will find IB a better fit. The College Board and other websites offer extensive discussions on the benefits of each and guidance for students on choosing between the two. At Mountain View, Principal Katie Legace sought to inform those who requested transfers about what her school has to offer, and she OK’d transfers for those who still wanted them. That seems a reasonable approach, although we wonder about the families that didn’t respond to her invitations and therefore won’t be getting approvals. The IB program at Bend High is a tribute to the school and to the district administration that enabled its development. It’s a shame to sully that success by trying to keep students from taking advantage of it.

Don’t remodel St. Charles A March 24 Bulletin article was headlined “St. Charles prepares for a remodel. First-floor project is intended to improve the patient experience.� Seriously? Another Bulletin article on Aug. 3, 2011, “St. Charles operating in the red; 3 jobs cut,� details the percentage of patients with commercial insurance (28%), Medicare (52%), Medicaid (15%) and uninsured (5%). Just over a quarter of St. Charles’ patients are paying customers, who support and fund the other 72 percent. That’s a health-care system on the verge of implosion. A third recent article, “Bend more costly for commercially insured,� from Jan. 27, 2011, reports that the cost of inpatient hospital use in Bend is 25 percent higher than the national average and physician care is 40 percent more expensive. Is it any wonder we’re going broke paying for health care in Central Oregon? It seems the “patient experience� will be improved by “private, individual stations where patients will sign in� and six pre-op consultation rooms. Is “patient experience� really going to benefit from the new physician lounge, conference room and study or the lounge for administrative staffers? (Heaven forbid they mingle!) Couldn’t the medical records area be in a hole in the ground rather than occupying expensive real estate? If St. Charles really wants to improve this patient’s experience, it’ll save the $2 million it’s spending on this remodel and cut costs instead. Does anyone at all have the fore-

sight to see what’s going to happen when that 28 percent dwindles even further? Allyn Hardman Sisters

Take a closer look at trapping I can understand the outrage voiced by those whose pets have been harmed by traps. But let’s take a closer look at the issue; trappers blazed the trails to our nation’s expansion. Trapping has been part of the world’s economics for centuries. Trapping is still economically viable today. Other species use trapping to survive. The other side can argue that trapping is cruel and a danger to others. That is a fair argument, but, if you were to educate yourself on how nature’s creatures treat each other you may see things in a different light. Watch any nonbiased documentary about animal life, and you may be horrified. The dangers to others are usually self-imposed, namely, lack of pet control. I will admit there are some inexperienced (lazy) trappers who would set their traps in bad areas. We can all share our public lands — trapping season is mid-November through February — be aware. Marking traps will only lead to others destroying others’ property. Use common sense; would you walk in the woods during hunting season wearing tan clothing? No, you would wear bright clothing or wait until the season is over before walking about. Lastly, how many of you who would advocate ending trapping have no problem with abortion?

Think about it. Mike Meier Bend

Trapping is torture Mr. Prineville, I understand your point of view is basically this: Trapping is good because we’ve always done it and it makes economic good sense. That about it? Please see Trap Free Oregon and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife websites for information on laws, income and opinions about harm to animals, fur-bearing and otherwise. Mr. Sisters, you say dogs should be controlled because trappers want freedom to trap wild animals. Unfortunately, our national bird also gets caught in these traps. But you don’t want to change things any more than Mr. Prineville. Mr. Mitchell, you are afraid of poison and bullets replacing traps so pets and people might still get hurt. Change has got you scared, too, right? For mice, use a cat. For rats, get a rat terrier dog. Ms. Bend, thank you for telling it like it is. Trapping is torture to animals, wild or domestic, caught in those traps. Many states, including California and Washington and many foreign countries have adopted laws against using steel jawed traps and other devices considered inhumane. Some say trapping is a livingwage situation. According to the facts presented in the websites above, the average income per trapper is less than $1,000 per year. I want to meet the person who can live on $1,000 per year. Bobbi Cowan Redmond

Schools should have the courage to change the calendar By Martha Daniels The school calendar is a relic of the agricultural age. The most objectionable result of this system is the learning lapse and subsequent review that occur each fall. I believe an alternative method should be an option; here is one suggestion. There are 52 weeks in a year, comprised of four 13-week quarters. There are many variations as to how these quarters could be arranged into 9-week academic sessions. The overall concept would be to provide four distinct academic sessions per year, with each quarter having a short (maximum, 3½ weeks) break as well as conventional holidays. This would prevent the severe learning regression that transpires each summer under our current system. It would also give teachers, students and families the freedom to enjoy a stay-cation/vacation during

each of the four seasons. Seasonal activities could be enjoyed more readily with less crowding at most places. It would break up the long, endless days of school that seem to linger forever each spring, not to mention the endof-summer boredom each August. The bonus is that it would not cost a penny more than the current system. Because the school year would still be 36 weeks (180 days) of instruction, no increase in teachers’ salaries would be required. One other tradition that negatively impacts education, as well as general health and proficiency, is the biannual time change. Again, this is a good idea gone bad. The transition each spring results in brainfog, more highway accidents, lower academic achievement and general malaise. More pointedly, the spring time change nearly always coincides with the administration of standard-

IN MY VIEW ized tests. Because the students’ body clocks are off, they do not perform as well as they might otherwise do. Simply put, this biannual tradition has far more negative effects than possible benefits, and it should be terminated immediately. (Having lived and taught in states that do and do not observe daylight savings time, I can attest to the validity of these statements.) If all children were welcomed into homes of nurturing, capable parents, then it would be ideal for the parents to teach and train their children, especially in the early years. However, this is not reality. Therefore, an alternative process for educating our young has evolved: the 25+ students/ class with one teacher setting. Is there a better way? I believe there is.

I think that (grades 1-5) gradeschool children would be less resistant to school if they were placed in small learning groups with a teacher/ teacher-aide to student ratio of 1:15. Discipline issues would be curtailed significantly. Flexible groupings, curricula and methods could optimize learning, while encouraging various social and recreational options. This would require increasing teaching personnel in the classrooms. One way to cut costs with marginal impact on students would be to reduce nonessential administrative positions. The savings in high-end salaries would offset the additional classroom faculty requirements. It is time to focus on the purpose of education; that is, to educate, and dismantle the bureaucratic empire-building that has nearly bankrupted the nation. As children progress to secondary schools, curricula should be

relevant and challenging, but not oppressive. For some students, proficiency in communication skills and basic home economic concepts would serve them well. Credit card debt and lack of financial discipline are traps that should be addressed in high school in order to arrest the out-of-control spending, poverty and entitlement mentality that pervades our society. Also, healthy life skills, positive parenting skills and self-discipline skills should be taught and rewarded. A college prep curriculum should be offered and pursued by students who are more driven or more capable. Likewise, a mix of the two is feasible. These are very realistic concepts that could be implemented fairly easily and with enormous positive consequences. Do we have the courage to do it? Martha Daniels lives in Bend.

The Associated Press file photo

Mike Wallace, CBS “60 Minutes” correspondent for almost 40 yers, appears during an interview at his office in New York in May 2006. Wallace, 93, famed for his tough interview style, died Saturday.

Wallace was a ‘force of nature’ in broadcast news Adam Bernstein The Washington Post.

Advertisements for the CBS newsmagazine show “60 Minutes” once boasted that for anyone hiding a secret, four of the most dreaded words in the English language are “Mike Wallace is here.” As the biggest star of the longest-running, highest-rated, most influential news show since its 1968 debut, Wallace helped define television journalism with an adversarial interviewing style that was as admired as it was feared. From an early career as an actor, cigarette pitchman and game-show host, he transitioned to what he called a more substantial career in hard news. “60 Minutes” made him rich, famous and one of the most commanding and imitated fixtures of TV journalism for more than two generations. Wallace died Saturday at age 93, a CBS spokesman told the Associated Press. The cause was not reported.

Developed persona Wallace developed a compelling persona that seamlessly blended country club lockerroom bonhomie with the prosecutorial zeal of Torquemada. With his theatrical baritone, he pitched softball questions that could take a sudden detour into an uncomfortable line of questioning meant to sniff out misdeeds or fun gossip. He became known as one the most skilled interviewers of the powerful, famous and elusive — world leaders, Holly-

wood celebrities, controversial newsmakers, notorious criminals and the hinkiest scam artists. He was a pioneer of the surprise, or “ambush,” interview, a technique intended to shock its targets into spilling information they might not in a scheduled interview.

‘Paved the way’ In short, he helped invent magazine-style television, which merged elements of news and entertainment in a powerful and immensely profitable way that kept CBS the most formidable of networknews providers for years and “60 Minutes” one of the most trusted of news programs. Television historian Ron Simon said Wallace’s ability to remain engaging while asking aggressive questions was crucial to his success as an investigative reporter. “He paved the way for how investigative journalism is done on television,” said Simon, a curator at the Paley Center for Media, a New York-based museum of radio and television. “He created a persona that worked for many decades and was compelling to viewers, who identified with him and trusted him as someone representing their interests.” When mapping out an interview, Wallace told Time magazine, he organized his questions by ambition, motivation, greed, joy and defeat, and said this established a “chemistry of confidentiality” that showed his guests “I cared enough to read and look at and worry about the questions.”

Wallace said he liked constructing stories as if they were “morality plays,” and his reports developed certain hallmarks over the years: the penetrating question, the close-up so intense it showed the guest’s pores, the way he discredited a guest’s statement by repeating it back in disbelief. He remained a competitive correspondent on “60 Minutes” well into his senior years — “60 Minutes” creator Don Hewitt once called him a “force of nature” — and he could turn brusque and demanding when he was not accorded star status on assignment choice.

Censorship opponent Mindful of his public image, Wallace became a leading and controversial voice in the 1990s debates over corporate censorship in journalism when CBS executives interfered with his “60 Minutes” segment on a tobacco industry whistleblower. In 1995, “60 Minutes” broadcast only a small portion of Wigand’s interview and hid his identity and face. On air, Wallace noted the limitations imposed by CBS management. Wallace, who officially retired in 2006, remained with the CBS news program longer than any of its other journalists, a list that over the years included Dan Rather, Diane Sawyer, Morley Safer, Ed Bradley and Harry Reasoner.

Continued from B1 Holton spent two years as the state’s top federal prosecutor, as U.S. Attorney in Oregon, and seven years prior as the assistant U.S. Attorney in the state. He pointed to his experience prosecuting violent crimes and his win in an environmental crime case, which put the CEO of a corporate polluter behind bars and secured $7.25 million in the largest vessel pollution case in the region’s history. The 46-year-old comes from a family of political players. His father is former Virginia Gov. Linwood Holton and his brother-in-law is Tim Kaine, who also once served as Virginia’s governor. “I grew up in a family that was steeped in the values of civil rights and justice,” Holton said. “My parents taught us when I was little that justice was something you have to fight for and it’s worth fighting for. And I’ve tried to live my life that way since then.” Holton said that drive has steered his career. That word — justice — he said, is also one of the more important words in the title of the office he would be charged with running. The Oregon Department of Justice should be a law enforcement leader for the rest of the state on issues such as protecting consumers from fraud, helping homeowners facing foreclosure and prosecuting those who break environmental laws. “(You need to) provide excellent legal advice to the state, that is a core mission,” he said. “But in my view, if that’s all you do, you’ve failed.” Like Holton, Rosenblum believes a large part of the job is fighting crime and providing legal advice to the state agencies. But, she said, she stands out having spent 36 years in the state, serving as a federal prosecutor, attorney and judge. “It’s very important to be aware of the breadth of the job,” she said. “Holton’s experience is criminal and federal. Mine is federal and criminal and serving the people of the state. … I’m a prosecutor plus.” Being a judge, she said, forces you to see the law from all sides. She said her opponent’s experience is more “top cop,” whereas she’s had a more balanced career. With Holton at the helm, he said, voters could trust that the office would be “getting people in the room to get things done on the front end, rather than wait and do things on the back end.” Holton has put together summits of key players in an effort to reduce deaths in the state by prescription drug overdoses. He’s particularly proud of the meals with Muslim leaders he hosted at his family’s home in Portland shortly after the tree-lighting festival bomb plot in 2010 at Portland’s Pioneer

Square. The outreach, he said, is key to preventing crime. “You show up too late as a prosecutor, by the time you get there it’s too late,” he said. “Someone’s been shot, or there’s been a drug overdose, or someone’s mom has lost their life’s savings on a fraud scam.” Both candidates point to their track records as managers. “You have to manage everyone in the courtroom, the jurors, the lawyers, the witnesses, I’ve done that for 22 years,” Rosenblum said, referring to her time as a judge. Holton managed more than 100 employees in the U.S. Attorney’s office, many of whom are endorsing him. Both maintain they have experience dealing with limited financial resources. “I’ve had to take out my own garbage at the Court of Appeals,” Rosenblum said. Holton pointed to having to work under the threat of federal government shutdowns. Both candidates said, once taking office, they would have open conversations with employees and strive to make the DOJ a place where people enjoy working. There have been rumors of low morale in the department’s office. “I’m concerned there are some issues,” Rosenblum said. “They have lost a number of really good people.” Rosenblum, who once represented iconic Oregon writer Ken Kesey and his family, made the distinction that the attorney general is an “Oregon job.” She’s running as the people’s attorney, she said. “I think it’s important the people are the ones investing in you and believing in you as the future leader. … It’s important to have support coming inside the state. If you are going outside the state, it suggests you don’t have the support here in Oregon.” She also said she would serve as a strong advocate for women’s rights. If elected, she would be the state’s first ever female attorney general. “With the issues out there

with a woman’s reproductive rights, health care, family and children issues, I can raise the profile of those as attorney general and that will truly benefit our state,” Rosenblum said. She pointed out the bulk of employees for the state agency work in child advocacy and protective services and in the collection of child support. “As a woman attorney general, I can advance those in a way that is unique for the state,” she said. Both candidates have received noteworthy support from the state’s legal community. Attorney General John Kroger, who cited health problems in declining to run for the position again, endorsed Holton. The two are close friends — Kroger is Holton’s son’s godfather. The majority of the state’s district attorneys, 30 of 36, have also thrown their weight behind Holton. More than 20 of the state’s county sheriffs have endorsed Holton along with the Oregon Education Association, one of the state’s larger unions. All told, Holton has brought in $222,363 this year, according to the secretary of state’s website. Rosenblum pointed out that Holton has brought in a lot of money from outside the state. Holton countered, saying the reality is it takes a lot of money to run and he has drawn on support from various areas. “I didn’t have the good fortune to be born in Oregon, but I had the good sense to move here. Our kids were born here. We’re raising them here,” Holton said, addressing Rosenblum’s criticism that he doesn’t have Oregon “roots” like she does. Rosenblum has raised $199,469.08 this year. Former Attorneys General Hardy Myers and Dave Frohnmayer have endorsed her, as has former Gov. Barbara Roberts. The Association of Federal, State, County & Municipal Employees Council 75 — one of the state’s largest unions — also supported Rosenblum.

Oregon program collects leftover paint

The Bulletin

Julianna Huth, 8, a second-grader at Green Primary School in Green, Ohio, uses an iPad as an e-reader.

Turning a page for young readers By Thomas J. Fitzgerald New York Times News Service

Julianna Huth, a second grader at Green Primary School, in Green, Ohio, is a convert to the digital word. The 8-year-old uses both an iPad and a Nook, and she enjoys e-books at home and at school. “It’s just cool that you can read on your iPad,” said Julianna, who started using e-books when she was 6. “It’s more fun and you learn more from it.” Children would say that. Books on iPads and some e-readers like the Nook Color or the Kindle Fire are fun. They include Inside music, anima• Android tion and other tablets interactive geared elements that toward make reading kids, C3 a book feel like playing a video game. In “Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes,” an e-book for TECH children ages 3-7, they can change the color of Pete’s shoes by touching them, sing along to music with the lyrics that roll along the page, listen to a narrator or record their voices as they read aloud. But is it better than a book? It may take a generation to know for sure, and even 10 or 20 years from now it will be debated as the effects of television or video games are still discussed today. Julianna’s teacher, Kourtney Denning, sees e-books as essential. “Old books don’t really cut it anymore,” she said. “We have to transform our learning as we know it.” Amid the excitement and enthusiasm, some people are suggesting a closer look, especially for younger children learning to read. “Right now, the stateof-the-art, in terms of research-based practice is: Read traditional books with your child,” said Julia Parish-Morris, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania who has studied e-books and how children interact with them. “We don’t have any evidence that any kind of electronic device is better than a parent.” In an attempt to figure out whether parents should embrace e-books with great enthusiasm or ration e-reader screen time as they do TV time, Julianna’s class is participating in a research project for the Center for Literacy at the University of Akron.

In almost two years, PaintCare of Oregon has collected more than 700,000 gallons of latex- and oil-based paint statewide as part of its effort to reduce the amount ending up in landfills. And other states will be starting the program that launched in Oregon, according to a news release from PaintCare, a nonprofit organization created by the American CoatGREEN ings Association. The Oregon Legislature created the paint stewardship pilot program in 2009, with funding from paint manufacturers, to promote an environmentally friendly way of disposing of leftover paint. Before the program, the only option consumers had was government-run household hazardous waste collection programs, according to PaintCare’s website. The program started in July 2010, and today Oregon has 100 PaintCare collection sites where residents can bring leftover paint for recycling, reuse and energy recovery, according to a news release. Since April 2011, 22 new collection sites have been established. In Central Oregon, collection sites can be found in Bend, La Pine, Madras, Redmond, Prineville and Sisters. Specific locations can be found at While PaintCare started as a pilot program in Oregon, it has expanded to other states. California and Connecticut both passed legislation. California’s program is scheduled to launch this year, and Connecticut plans to start enforcing paint stewardship by 2013. — Reporter: 541-617-7818,

Each flick of a digit is a job for all 5 By Natalie Angier New York Times News Service

You may think you’re pretty familiar with your hands. You may think you know them like the back of your hand. But as the following exercises derived from the latest hand research will reveal, your pair of bioengineering sensations still hold quite a few surprises up their sleeve. • Make a fist with your nonSCIENCE dominant hand, knuckle side up, and then try to extend each finger individually while keeping the other digits balled up tight. For which finger is it extremely difficult, maybe even impossible, to comply? • Now hold your hand palm up, fingers splayed straight out, and try curling your pinky inward without bending the knuckles of any other finger. Can you do it? • Imagine you’re an expert pianist or touch-typist, working on your chosen keyboard. For every note or letter you strike, how many of your fingers will move? See Hands / C6

A  & A  

Teen in throes of depression knows she has to get help Dear Abby: I really need some feedback. When I was 13, I would cut myself. I stopped around 15 after an attempted overdose that didn’t work. I did it because my parents were stressed due to money problems and ignored me or yelled at me a lot. I was also bullied in school. I had just moved here, so there was no one to turn to. Suddenly, in the last week, I have begun binge eating. I see no hope for me graduating, no hope for my life or my future. I wake up wanting to go back to sleep or overdose. My wrists have throbbed at the thought of wanting to cut again, and last night I had a dream of jumping off a building. All day I have had the same daydream of hitting the ground. I cry randomly for no reason. I have thought of multiple ways to kill myself. This just started. I can’t see why I can’t be happy. My brother is coming home from Afghanistan. I should be ecstatic. I plan on talking to a counselor tomorrow because I am not sure how to handle this. I don’t want to get into such a state that I’ll let myself overdose again. Thank you for your time. I just need some guidance on how to handle this. — Wavering Girl in Watertown, N.Y. Dear Wavering Girl: You are also a smart girl to be reaching out for help. I hope by the time you read this you will have spoken to a counselor about your feelings, because it appears you are suffering from a severe depression, which can impair a person’s judgment. Being bullied at school and worried about graduating would be enough to trigger it. The behaviors you describe mean you need to talk to — and probably be medicated by — a mental health care professional. If you had given me your phone number, I would have

DEAR ABBY talked with you personally about this — and, with your permission, spoken to your parents about it. Your counselor can help you reach out for the help you need, but if you experience more suicidal impulses, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling 800-273-8255. Dear Abby: I work for a small company. Employees here bring in treats to share and leave them in our break area so co-workers can help themselves. One employee, “Karen,� sits at a desk that is very near the lounge, and snaps to attention when anyone walks by with treats in hand. Then she jumps up and follows them into the lounge, where she lingers until the snacks are ready. She’ll hover over the trays of whatever is being offered while eating “samples.� Then she takes a huge helping and stands nearby while she eats it. She follows that up by taking more back to her desk. It’s annoying to see a plate of cookies or a pan of brownies that were brought to share with everyone gobbled down by one person. Karen earns a good salary. She certainly has enough money to buy her own food. So, Abby, what’s a good way to tell her to stop? — Missing My Cookies in Erie, Pa. Dear Missing Your Cookies: Try this. The next time one of you brings a treat to the office, put a sign next to it that reads, “One to a customer, please,� or tell “Miss Piggy� in plain English that she’s taking too much of a good thing. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Monday, April 9, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you develop an interest in the fundamentals of life. You could become interested in psychology, research about life and death, and other studies that deal with the basics of living. You’ll stretch your mind and find more inner peace. If you are single, you will bond with someone very different who will facilitate the above-mentioned process. If you are attached, as a couple you might travel more and witness different lifestyles. SAGITTARIUS encourages impulsiveness. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Start eliminating any illusions surrounding a situation. The unexpected tumbles into your plans, but do not let your irritation or anger show. If you do, you might need to placate others later. Be smart and let go, rather than blow up. Tonight: Relax with a loved one. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Relate directly to an individual, and maintain that direct avenue of communication in the future. A child or new friend could be unusually difficult. He or she cannot get enough of you and seems to be jealous that you aren’t able to share more of your time. Tonight: Be with a favorite person. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You might want to understand what is going on with others. Mixed messages seem to come from out of nowhere. Still, you’ll need to be true to yourself. A family member or domestic issue could be quite upsetting. Detach and sort through your issues. Tonight: Go out for dinner. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Stay levelheaded, no matter what you do. The unexpected opens your mind to a new option or different approach. Choose your words carefully; otherwise, you could be sorry for a very long time. Remain positive. Tonight: Do what makes you feel good. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Where others hit a brick wall, you seem to find a way through. You know what you want and why. You also have the determination to make it so. Do not sell yourself short. Be aware of a child’s and/or loved one’s needs.

Tonight: Give into some impulsive fun. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You can turn irritation into energy if you focus. Emphasize a project and pour all of your energy into it. Frustration will dissipate out of the blue. Know that you can do the same with anger. Today provides opportunities to test this process. Tonight: Head home. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You are likely to say what you mean and mean what you say. You can change what is happening in your immediate circle if you just relax. Know when to stop pushing so hard, as you could be accident-prone. Do not sit on your feelings, either. Tonight: Lighten up the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Be aware of what you are spending. What are your limits in this situation? You might feel pushed to do something because it is the “right� thing to do within a certain set of friends or acquaintances. Tonight: Indulge a little. Relax. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might understand what is going on with others. You are in the position to stay centered and know what it is you want. You will deal with an element of surprise, others’ anger and a need to express yourself. Tonight: Smile, and others will become more agreeable. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HH Understand that others mean to be supportive, whether they actually are or not. You will want to rethink a situation without your normal advisers. You could be surprised by news, no matter how it is delivered. Tonight: Take some much-needed time off. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You might want to understand what is happening within your circle of friends. Focus on a key goal that seems to be interfering with others’ interests or commitments. Discussions could become adversarial out of the blue. Tonight: All smiles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You have a way with people, but you still might choose to walk away from hostility. Be careful, because you might be establishing a precedent, and others will follow your lead. Is this what you want? Use caution with your finances. Tonight: In the limelight.

E-books Continued from C1 The project is meant to find the best way to integrate e-books into classrooms. It is part of a broader study of kindergartners through second graders using a range of devices and computers. Julianna’s mother, Cathy Ivancic, was elated when she learned the class would take part in the study. She said that devices like the iPad were new and fun and gave children an incentive to read, including those who might be reluctant. “It’s a new motivation to explore reading,� she said. “At this age is when you learn to love reading, or not love reading.� Ivancic’s other daughter, Jessica, 13, also uses an ereader, preferring e-books over traditional books because they are easier to read. “And in between books you can play apps,� she said. Parish-Morris and educators are concerned that children can be distracted by the animations and gamelike features within e-books. Maintaining a focus on the story is important in developing literacy skills, they said. One way this happens spontaneously is through a back-and-forth dialogue that develops naturally between

Hands Continued from C1 • You’re at your desk and, without giving it much thought, you start reaching over for your water bottle, or your pen. What does your hand start doing long before it makes contact with the desired object? And a high-five to our nearest nonhuman kin: •What is the most important difference between a chimpanzee’s hands and our own? (a) the chimpanzee’s thumbs are not opposable; (b) the chimpanzee’s thumbs are shorter than ours; or (c) the chimpanzee’s thumbs are longer than ours. On, then, to the answer key. The rare rubber joints notwithstanding, most people who attempt that first sequential digitstraightening exercise find that the thumb and index finger spring free of the fist with ease and that the middle and pinky fingers are not far behind, but that the ring finger is a stuck, stubborn mule: No matter how they struggle, it doesn’t want to move. By a similar token in challenge No. 2, a majority discover to their frustration that they just can’t curl the pinky palmward without the joints of the ring finger flexing along for the ride. Our fingers can seem like restless Ariels, so fast and dexterous you’d think they had plans and options of their own. Yet as scientists who study the performance, circuitry and evolution of the human hand have lately determined, the appearance of digital independence is deeply deceptive. Not only are the ring and pinky fingers physically tethered together by a shared tendon, as anatomists long have known; measurements of neuromuscular activation patterns have shown that all fingers, including the ones with the greatest structural autonomy, the thumb and index finger, are keenly responsive to every flex and twitch of their neighboring digits. “Even when you think you’re moving just one finger,” said Marc Schieber, a professor of neurology and neurobiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, “you’re really controlling your entire hand.” The pianist playing Ravel or the typist clacking on Blogspot? “People tend to think, they’re hitting one key at a time, so they must be moving one finger at a time to hit that key,” Schieber said. “But really, all the fingers are in motion all the time.” For every keystroke, there’s a movement of every finger. “Some of the movement is to strike the key,” Schieber said, “others to lift fingers back up and away from the key, others to hold them away.”


Different proportions Human hands have relatively short fingers and long thumbs, compared with chimpanzee hands. Finger bones also approximate the Fibonacci sequence: From tip to wrist, each bone is about as long as the previous two bones.




Chimpanzee New York Times News Service

The brain also treats the hands as unified tools, often in ways of which we’re not consciously aware. Scientists have shown that our hands start assuming the necessary configuration as soon as the brain initiates an activity — if not a micromoment earlier. If we’re reaching for a water bottle, the hand takes on a generic open cupping shape, refining the curvature and angle of the gesture as the hand closes in on the bottle. In groping for a pen, the thumb, index and middle fingers — the masters of fine-motor manipulations — form a preliminary pincer, while the ring finger and pinky (important for gripping bulkier objects, like bottles) tuck themselves politely under and out of the way. To appreciate the centrality of manual anticipation to the seamless performance of tasks, try blocking the pre-cupping maneuver as you reach for a glass, and see how clueless you and your hand will feel about how to proceed. You will not, however, be all thumbs, or even half thumbs, for as research into the evolution of the human hand has shown, the thumb is what sets apart our hands from those of other apes. Not by being opposable — apes and many monkeys have opposable thumbs — but by being exceptionally long, strong and flexible. “Our thumbs are relatively long and our fingers relatively short compared to a gorilla or chimpanzee,” said Stephen Lycett, an anthropologist at the University of Kent in England. “That allows us to very strongly pinch an item, to a much greater degree than a chimp.” Give the thumb two thumbs up. “When we lose a thumb, we lose half if not more of the functionality of the hand,” said Lynette Jones, a hand specialist

at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This is why people who have lost a thumb often opt to have another finger or a great toe transplanted into its place. The hard-working digit pays a price for its diligence. In this country, said Dr. Steven McCabe, a past president of the American Association for Hand Surgery, almost everyone ends up with arthritis at the base of the thumb by late middle age. The human hand is a tool gripper and a fact finder, so richly embedded with sensors that it has been compared to the fovea of the retina, the part of the eye with the highest concentration of light receptors. The hair-free skin of each hand holds about 17,000 mechanoreceptors, specialized nerve endings that can detect tiny vibrations, pressure changes, microscopic bumps and slurries, the touch of a mosquito’s leg. “If you want to find out about texture, to distinguish silk from polyester,” Jones said, “you can’t resolve it visually, and so you touch it with your hands.” Hands are bone-rich, too, the 27 bones of the hand and wrist representing the highest concentration of interlinked bones in the human body, according to McCabe. Moreover, the bones of the nonthumb fingers appear to have a mathematical bent, the ratios between them conforming in many people to the Fibonacci sequence, a numerical relationship seen in such other spiraling shapes of nature as the nautilus shell, sunflower face and hurricane. If you wave your fingers in a cascade, like a magician, McCabe said, “you can see the spiral curve at work.” Our hands are still restless, still evolving, worth a standing ovation but with room to improve. I say we lose the thumb arthritis and loosen the ring finger’s chain.

Continued from C1 Sullivan spent most of the day facing a Packard Bell personal computer, with the Bend company’s employees huddled around him. He plugged queries into, one of the handful of search engines that were popular at the time, and adjusted a website’s title and other properties. “It had an instant-update feature,” Simmonds said of the search engine. “You could go in, change the website, submit … (and) check for rankings immediately. It was awesome. ‘Now I’ll go check this title tag.’ … We could literally watch the placement increase or decrease based on small changes that we made.” Earlier that year, Audette had figured out just what this sort of website finagling ought to be called: search-engine optimization. It came to be known by its acronym, SEO. Practitioners became SEOs — search-engine optimizers. Today Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, attributes the first use of the term to Audette’s company, citing its appearance on the Multimedia Marketing Group website in 1997. In addition to the buffet of services Audette’s company offered, such as placing ads in niche email lists and submitting websites for traffic-grabbing awards, Simmonds began offering to tweak clients’ websites to perform better in search results and even do special SEO jobs for new clients. Promoting Intel’s Pentium II processor offered Multimedia Marketing Group a perfect example of the difference SEO could make, Simmonds said. “We killed it for that,” he said. “… We had almost every placement in the top 10 for Infoseek. … Intel had various pages about it. We ranked everywhere for it.” More and more clients flocked to the Bend company. The workforce swelled and, according to several accounts, the office got crowded. Simmonds called it a sweatshop. “We were breaking every zoning law in Bend,” Audette said.

The next generation In fact, most employees decided to stay in Bend. And 12 years later, some are still here, including Audette and his two sons, Adam and John Jr. Internet searching has shifted from Yahoo and other directories to crawlers such as Google. But making websites ripe for high perches in search results remains a key business-development tool. And the term Audette named has grown in popularity. For some people, SEO is a phrase in the vernacular, not just an industry term. In 2008, Audette and his son Adam collaborated with a partner to form Audette Media, a company focused solely on SEO. In August, the RimmKaufman Group, an online marketing company based in Charlottesville, Va., acquired Audette Media. Terms were

not disclosed. But all 22 Audette Media employees have been able to stay on at the Bend office, said Adam Audette, now 41. The acquisition agreement stipulates that Rimm-Kaufman must keep the Bend office for at least three years after the deal, he said. His father, John Audette, 67, continues to work on SEO. In 2010, he started 406 Strategies, a company through which he helps local companies rank higher in local search results. From 1999 to 2010, Simmonds used his SEO knowledge to help guide website Later, he helped The New York Times Co. figure out how to optimize its websites to gain higher search rankings — all remotely, from Bend. Another early Multimedia Marketing Group employee, Derrick Wheeler, has become the senior SEO architect for Microsoft. He also works in Bend. Andre Jensen, stuck around Bend after working for Multimedia Marketing Group and has developed connections with big clients such as Procter & Gamble, through his search-engine optimization contracting business, FreelanceSEM. He works from his home in Bend and teaches search marketing at Central Oregon Community College. His wife, Mellissa Jensen, also in Multimedia Marketing Group’s alumni, now works at Bend-based Global Strategies, a subsidiary of the public-relations giant Ogilvy & Mather.

Mecca With so many search gurus sticking around since the heady days of Multimedia Marketing Group, industry people think of Bend as a mecca or mothership. “Look at all the companies that have come out of there,” said Simmonds, who moved to Boise, Idaho, in February. “Put anybody up against that in that time, and as far as talent and process and client list is concerned, nobody touches what Bend did. Nobody does.” — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

In 1999, the company moved into a fancy suite on Southwest Columbia Street, along the Deschutes River. Inside the reception area, river rock supported a smooth wood countertop, and transparent glass paneling nearby revealed servers blinking away, Audette said. New employees were coming fast, Simmonds said. At one point, he said he told a colleague, “I don’t know some of these people’s names.” Employment was at a healthy 85 or so, Audette said. At least there was fun to be had. Around that time, the company brought in pizza every Wednesday. Employees could take off days whenever there was at least 4 or 6 inches of new snow at Mt. Bachelor, Simmonds said. And one of the servers in the server room was devoted to hosting the video games “Doom” and “Quake,” Simmonds said. At the end of 1999, a London company, Tempus Group, acquired Multimedia Marketing Group. Six months after the deal went through, Tempus decided to close the Bend office, giving employees the option to relocate to a Tempus facility in Connecticut, according to The Bulletin’s archives. “The vast majority of positions are being relocated, not eliminated,” Adam Sherk, Multimedia Marketing Group’s vice president of public relations, was quoted as saying. “But not everyone is choosing to move.”

Williams wins Family Circle Cup CHARLESTON, S.C. — Serena Williams has plenty to keep her busy. There’s college classes, a relaunch of her clothing line and a possible move to Paris. And, oh yeah, there’s that brand of dominant tennis that Williams plays like few others in the world. Williams capped a week of powerful performances with a 6-0, 61 victory over Lucie Safarova to win the Family Circle Cup on Sunday. It was Williams’ 40th WTA title and first on clay in four years since capturing this championship in 2008. Williams didn’t expect to show so strongly in her first event of the season on clay. She said the steady stream of things she deals with off the tennis court helps keep her focused when she’s on it. “I’m just trying to keep my mind busy,” Williams said. “I’m doing so much it keeps me staying in the moment.” This week, that’s been playing some of the most dominant matches of her career. Williams followed up a 6-1, 6-1 steamroll over Samantha Stosur, the world’s fifth-ranked player, in the semifinals Saturday with her rout of Safarova. Williams said she had some mediocre practices this week, yet saved her best when it counted most. “I’ve never played, I can say, consistently at such a high level with low errors” the last two matches, Williams said. “And the scary thing is,” she says, “I could’ve served so much better.” — The Associated Press


Best for last • After a strong finish to his career at Washington State, Bend’s Abe Lodwick has his sights set on playing hoops overseas By Zack Hall The Bulletin

Abe Lodwick knew the March 30 game against Pittsburgh would be his last as a Washington State Cougar. But with the minutes ticking down in the championship final of the College Basketball Invitational at Pitt’s Petersen Events Center, a game the Cougars eventually lost 71-65, that fact truly sank in for the former prep basketball standout at Bend’s Mountain View High School. “You start realizing, ‘Win or lose, I have three more minutes left in my career,’ ” Lodwick, a 6-foot-7 swingman and three-year captain for the Cougars, recalled in a phone interview this week. “It was definitely a weird feeling.” For the first time in five years, Lodwick is no longer a college basketball player. Lodwick — a Pac-12 Conference all-academic player who is on pace to graduate in May with degrees in both organizational communications and political science — said he has just two classes left to complete to earn his degrees. And with basketball now done, he suddenly has plenty of time on his hands. “It’s kind of nice to have some days off and just not think about basketball at all, relax and kind of sit around,” he said. “It feels really good.” But the 23-year-old Lodwick, who redshirted during the 2007-08 season, is not done with basketball. “I do want to play pro basketball so I am going to do what I can to find the best opportunity overseas somewhere and make the most of that,” Lodwick said. It’s a lofty goal, especially considering that Lodwick spent his sophomore and junior seasons at WSU as a role player, expected to take a back seat to Cougar scorers such as Klay Thompson, who is now a rookie with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors. But Lodwick played a more prominent role this past season. After a slow start, missing the first 10 games while nursing a foot injury, Lodwick enjoyed his most productive offensive season. He averaged a career-best 7.1 points per game and hit 46.2 percent of his threepoint attempts, among the highest percentages in the Pac-12. “He proved during the course of the year that he could REALLY shoot the ball,” said Ken Bone, Washington State’s third-year head coach.

Rolling in Washington to support Central Oregon • Bend nonprofit employee advocates for federal funding for biking/walking at summit event


ith its plethora of trails, cyclocross fiends and high caliber races, Central Oregon is a hotbed for cycling, which should come as a surprise to just about no one in these parts, where the sport and the activity are so firmly embraced. In fact, it is difficult to go anywhere without encountering a bicycle shop, and Bend, host to numerous cycling national championship events, even likes to bill itself as “Bike Town USA.” Brian Potwin is trying to maintain the status quo. Potwin, the Safe Routes to Schools coordinator and lead instructor for the Bend nonprofit Commute Options, recently attended the League of American Bicyclists’ 12th National Bike Summit in Washington, D.C., where he urged congressional leaders to continue support for biking and walking. According to the league, efforts at previ-

AMANDA MILES ous summits have led to the establishment of the Senate Bike Caucus and the introduction of the Bicycle Commuter Act, which took effect in 2009 and allows employers to reimburse employees who frequently use bicycles as a mode of transportation between home and work. “Our ask was: ‘Will you support dedicated federal funding for bicycling and walking?’ ” Potwin says, referring to the roughly 800 delegates who represented every state except Alaska at the March 20-22 summit. “That was the clear message we were sending to both the Senate and the House.” The timing of the National Bike Summit could hardly have been better, as the U.S. House of Representatives was preparing for a March 31 vote on the federal transportation bill, which allocates funding for freight, bridge repairs, highways and other projects. It also funds transportation enhancements, programs like Safe Routes to Schools, and even recreational trails. See Washington / D6

Bubba Watson poses with his green jacket after winning the Masters following a sudden death playoff on the 10th hole Sunday in Augusta, Ga.

Out of the woods and into the green •A key shot in a playoff helps Bubba Watson beat Louis Oosthuizen and claim the Masters By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The rarest shot in golf can happen any time Bubba Watson has a golf club in hands. Watson was so deep in the woods late Sunday afternoon that he couldn’t even see where he was going. With his golf ball nestled on a bed of pine needles, he hit a gap wedge that shot out toward the fairway and hooked some 40 yards and onto the elevated green. Nothing less than the Masters was riding on the outcome. Nothing else would do except for a page right out of “Bubba golf.” And on a thrill-a-minute Sunday at Augusta National, where Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa made only the fourth double eagle in the 76-year history of this major, it made Watson a Masters champion. “I’ve never had a dream go this far, so I can’t really say it’s a dream come true,” Watson said. “I don’t even know what happened on the back nine. ... Nervous on every shot, every putt. Went into a playoff. I got in these trees and hit a crazy shot that I saw in my head, and somehow I’m here talking to you with a green jacket on.” His amazing shot in the playoff settled 10 feet from the hole, setting up a simple par for the win. Lost in all the commotion was Oosthuizen making what is commonly called the rarest shot in golf — an albatross — when his 4-iron from 253 yards on the par-5 second hole landed on the front of the green, took the slope and rolled some 90 feet into the cup for a 2.

S   B Tennis • U.S. tops France, awaits Spain in Davis Cup semis: Having beaten Roger Federer’s Switzerland and France on the road, the U.S. Davis Cup team now awaits a more daunting obstacle — defending champion Spain in the semifinals. John Isner sent the Americans into the next round by winning Sunday’s opening singles match in Roquebrune, France — a 63, 7-6 (4) 5-7, 6-3 victory over sixth-ranked Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France. The U.S. is in the last four of the Davis Cup for the first time since 2008. Isner won both his singles in style, dispatching Gilles Simon on Friday and refusing to get rattled against Tsonga. Simon beat 19-yearold Ryan Harrison 6-2, 6-3 in Sunday’s last match to make the final score 3-2. In other quarterfinals, host Czech Republic topped Serbia 4-1 and host Argentina beat Croatia 4-1. The semifinals are in September.

Cycling • Britain’s Hoy wins men’s keirin gold: Britain’s Chris Hoy produced a late surge to overtake three riders and win the men’s keirin title on the final day of the world track cycling championships Sunday in Melbourne, Australia. Earlier, Australia’s Anna Meares set a world record to reclaim the women’s time trials title as the host nation ended the five-day tournament with the most medals and a psychological boost heading into the London Olympics. Belgium won the final event of the meet, the men’s madison, with Britain and Australia taking the silver and bronze, respectively. • Boonen wins Paris-Roubaix for fourth time: Belgian rider Tom Boonen has won the ParisRoubaix race for a record-tying fourth time, successfully breaking away from the pack about 35 miles from the end of Sunday’s one-day classic. The 2005 world champion crossed the finish line alone before five chasing riders had reached the velodrome in the northern French town of Roubaix. Boonen shook four fingers over his head as he crossed the line in front of a cheering crowd, in celebration of his tying the record four victories in cycling’s toughest one-day race set by his countryman Roger de Vlaeminck in the 1970s.

Basketball • Lin feels good, but doubts return for first round: New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin says he feels “pretty good” after knee surgery but doesn’t think he could make it back for the first round of the playoffs. Lin had surgery last Monday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. The Knicks have said the expected recovery time is about six weeks. • TCU to announce Johnson as coach: TCU plans to intro-

duce LSU’s Trent Johnson today as the basketball coach who will lead the Horned Frogs into the Big 12 Conference. In a release Sunday, the school said a “major announcement” involving the men’s basketball program would be made during a news conference today. There were no other specifics given in the release, but a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Johnson would be hired as Jim Christian’s replacement.

Horse racing • Smith not near finish line after 5,000 wins: Mike Smith was more relieved than celebratory after his 5,000th career victory. Kind of how the Hall of Fame jockey felt during Zenyatta’s 19-0 winning streak. Smith won $150,000 stakes races back-to-back Saturday at Santa Anita to reach the milestone, the 25th jockey in thoroughbred history to do so. He accomplished the feat riding one of his favorite horses, Amazombie, last year’s champion sprinter. Smith won by three-quarters of a length, never needing his whip to get home first. He deliberately rode lower in the saddle. “I got down just to show the guys in the (jockeys’) room that the old guy could still get down,” he said, laughing. “I got to shake the young boys up in the room every now and then.”

Olympics • Boat Race protest heightens concerns for Olympics: Britain’s Olympic chief fears the London Games could be marred by a protest like the one that disrupted the Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge on the River Thames. Trenton Oldfield jumped into the water and appeared to deliberately cross the path of the rowers halfway through the competition Saturday in a protest against elitism and privilege. He was arrested and later charged with a public order offense. With less than four months until the Olympics, the Boat Race highlighted concerns about athlete safety at events where the public will line the route, including the rowing, open water swimming, marathon and road cycling. • Qatar to send third female athlete to London Games: Qatar has increased its women’s team for the London Games, adding a third competitor for the first appearance by women from the Gulf state at an Olympics.

Spurs take win streak to 11 The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs pushed their winning streak to 11 on a night when coach Gregg Popovich committed to playing just 10 men. That health prioritizing isn’t likely to change — whether first place is on the line or not. Tony Parker scored 28 points, Manu Ginobili had 23 off the bench and the Spurs reached their second 11-game winning streak of the season, beating the Utah Jazz 114-104 on Sunday night to maintain their slim lead atop the Western Conference. Tim Duncan added 13 points and 16 rebounds, making this the 28th win in 33 games for the Spurs who look like countless other Big Three showcases. But different this time was Ginobili, who has missed 29 games with injuries this year, deliberately seeking out contact to toughen up before the playoffs. Popovich also sat starting center DeJuan Blair for the first time all season. “It’s time for me to join in,” Ginobili said following his biggest game since returning from a broken hand in March. Yet he may not join the Spurs tonight in Salt Lake City, when the Spurs and Jazz finish an unusual home-and-home in consecutive nights. Someone shouted to Ginobili in the locker room they would see him when they got back from Utah, though Ginobili said he did not know if he was making the trip. Al Jefferson led the Jazz with 19 points and 10 rebounds for Utah, which dropped 1½ games behind Denver for the eighth and final playoff spot with nine games to go. Devin Harris had 18 points and reserve DeMare Carroll had 16 for the Jazz. Guard C.J. Miles left in the second quarter with a strained left calf, and is scheduled to undergo an MRI when the team returns to Utah. “Any time you lose your top guys, it’s tough. But we’re a deep team. Injuries happen,” Harris said. “They’re unfortunate, but it’s more playing time for the other guys. We just have to keep playing and fighting through.” Six of Utah’s remaining games are against winning teams. The Jazz (29-28) are trying to return to the playoffs for the first time in three years and are poised to decide their own fate if they get there. Utah still has meetings left against Dallas, Phoenix and Houston, all of whom entered Sunday within 1½ games of each other. The Spurs (40-14) have played two more games than the Thunder (41-15). San Antonio overtook Oklahoma City in the standings for the first time all season Friday and owns the tiebreaker with 12 games remaining. Expect to see the Spurs cashing in on their new stockpile of depth between now and then. Aside from Popovich sitting Blair, newcomer Stephen Jackson didn’t play, either. Danny Green had 14 points. Ginobili was 14 of 15 from the foul line, saying he

made the conscious decision to attack the basket, in part, because he’s essentially trying to get used to absorbing physical contact again. “I’m trying to start to be more aggressive going to the rim. I haven’t been fouled much,” Ginobili said.

PITTSBURGH — Scott Hartnell can feel the animosity the second the Philadelphia Flyers forward skates onto the ice at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center. “There’s a lot of hatred by the city against us,” Hartnell said. “We thrive off that.” If the Flyers want to survive their first-round matchup with the Penguins, they don’t really have a choice. “It’s going to be a bloodbath,” Hartnell added, with a grin. As usual. The typical venom between the rivals will likely only escalate this time around. Pittsburgh has won each of the previous two playoff meetings, using victories in 2008 and 2009 as springboards to the Stanley Cup Finals. Throw in Philadelphia’s addition of former Pittsburgh stars Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot and the Flyers coaching staff calling out the Penguins for dirty play and there’s more than enough bile to go around. The series starts on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, where the Penguins have home-ice advantage in name only. “I expect a pretty intense series,” Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said. “If anything prior to this is any indication, that’s pretty fair to say. Those are the kind of series you want to be a part of.” Pittsburgh’s 4-2 win over the Flyers in the regular season finale on Saturday was the calm before the storm. Save for a first-period fight between Philadelphia’s Harry Zolnierczyk and Penguins forward Joe Vitale, both teams were on their best behavior. The game was so calm Crosby felt compelled to call it “weird.” The Flyers are 5-1 at Consol since it opened in 2010 and their 25 road victories this season tied Boston for tops in the NHL. Hartnell has a theory on why Philadelphia feels so comfortable at Pittsburgh’s new barn, pointing to Consol’s plush interior as opposed to cramped and outdated Mellon Arena. “The fans aren’t on top of you,” he said. “It feels like you can just go out and play.” Something the Flyers have done better than most teams against the Penguins. Philadelphia won four of the six regular season meetings, often frustrating Pittsburgh’s high-powered offense by taking away Bend Redmond 541.388.2333 541.548.9159

NHL PLAYOFFS the space Crosby and Art Ross Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin need to operate. The Flyers have the utmost respect for Crosby and Malkin, though with that respect comes a fair amount of anger. “There’s guys in (Pittsburgh) that you don’t like,” Hartnell said. “Obviously they’re some of the best players in the league and you see them on the highlights every night and it annoys you.” And that annoyance can sometimes bubble over. Their last meaningful meeting — a 6-4 Philadelphia win on April 1 — ended with an ugly brawl in the final minute that left Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette smashing a stick over the glass in frustration. Laviolette later called Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma “gutless” for setting the stage of the fight and assistant coach Craig Berube piled on a few days later, calling Crosby and Malkin the two dirtiest players on the team. Crosby brushed off the criticism as gamesmanship while acknowledging he’s not exactly a gentleman on the ice. Becoming one now wouldn’t be wise. The former MVP is starting to come on after missing all but 22 games this year due to concussionlike symptoms, scoring his eighth goal of the season on Saturday. “We wanted to make sure we finished strong and I think that’s what we did the last few games,” Crosby said. “The real season starts now.” That’s why the Penguins are refusing to engage in the trash-talk. A sometimes tortuous 15 months off the ice behind him, Crosby is focused on leading Pittsburgh to its second Stanley Cup in four years. Pittsburgh appeared primed to make a Cup run last season only to be derailed by injuries to Crosby and Malkin while losing to Tampa Bay in seven games in the opening round. The Penguins are healthy and confident. So are the young Flyers, who racked up 103 points in the regular season despite a retooled roster that includes Talbot. A fan favorite during his six seasons in Pittsburgh, Talbot states it’s a bit different to be on the other side of the rivalry now. “I can’t say it’s not special playing here,” Talbot said. That doesn’t mean he wants to win any less, even if it comes at the expense of good friends Crosby and Malkin.

American League roundup

National League roundup

• Tigers 13, Red Sox 12: DETROIT — Alex Avila’s two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning gave Detroit a wild victory over Boston, leaving the Red Sox winless in three games under new manager Bobby Valentine. Detroit trailed 10-7 when Miguel Cabrera tied the game with a three-run shot off Alfredo Aceves in the ninth. Boston then scored twice in the 11th, but Mark Melancon (0-2) couldn’t hold the lead. • Rays 3, Yankees 0: ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Jeremy Hellickson came within one out of a three-hitter on his birthday and Tampa Bay beat New York to complete a season-opening sweep and match the best start in club history. Carlos Pena and Jeff Keppinger homered for Tampa Bay, which also started with three consecutive wins in 2002. • Orioles 3, Twins 1: BALTIMORE — Jason Hammel took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in his Baltimore debut and the Orioles beat Minnesota for a threegame sweep. Hammel (1-0) faced the minimum 21 batters through seven innings, allowing two walks, before Justin Morneau ended the no-hit bid with a leadoff double off the right-field wall in the eighth. • Royals 7, Angels 3: ANAHEIM, Calif. — Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler homered and drove in three runs apiece, and Kansas City beat Los Angeles to take two of three in their season-opening series. Jonathan Sanchez (1-0) got through five innings to win his first start with the Royals. • Indians 4, Blue Jays 3: CLEVELAND — Carlos Santana hit two home runs on his 26th birthday, Derek Lowe pitched seven strong innings and Cleveland beat Toronto for its first win. • Rangers 5, White Sox 0: ARLINGTON, Texas — Matt Harrison pitched six scoreless innings while Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy homered for Texas, which wrapped up its seasonopening series with a victory over the Chicago White Sox.

• Diamondbacks 7, Giants 6: PHOENIX — Ryan Roberts and Lyle Overbay hit consecutive two-out homers off Matt Cain and Arizona tied a franchise record by rallying from six runs down to beat San Francisco and sweep the season-opening three-game series. • Mets 7, Braves 5: NEW YORK — Jonathon Niese took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his first start since signing a rich contract and the New York Mets completed a season-opening sweep of Atlanta. • Pirates 5, Phillies 4: PITTSBURGH — Andrew McCutchen singled home pinch-runner Josh Harrison with two outs in the ninth inning to lift Pittsburgh over Philadelphia. Joel Hanrahan (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth for Pittsburgh, which beat the five-time defending NL East champions in its final at-bat for the second time in less than 24 hours. • Reds 6, Marlins 5: CINCINNATI — Scott Rolen drove in the winning run in the ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Reds to a comefrom-behind win over Miami. • Cubs 4, Nationals 3: CHICAGO — Jeff Samardzija dominated into the ninth inning, outpitching Jordan Zimmermann, and the Chicago Cubs beat Washington for their first win of the Theo Epstein era. Samardzija (1-0) was spectacular in his sixth career start, allowing four hits and an earned run. • Cardinals 9, Brewers 3: MILWAUKEE — Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and St. Louis beat the Brewers, taking two out of three from their NL Central rivals to start the season. Ryan Braun hit his first home run of the year for the Brewers, a solo shot with the game well out of reach in the ninth. • Astros 3, Rockies 2: HOUSTON — Brian Bogusevic drove in the go-ahead run after Jose Altuve scored on Jordan Pacheco’s throwing error to tie it in the eighth inning and Houston beat Colorado. • Padres 8, Dodgers 4: SAN DIEGO — Clayton Richard and two relievers combined on a four-hitter, Chase Headley hit a grand slam and Andy Parrino had his first big league homer for San Diego, who beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to avoid a four-game sweep.

Mickelson gives away the Masters By Tim Dahlberg The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. — he hugs with his family took place on the clubhouse lawn, not the 18th green. That was occupied, and by this time there was nothing Phil Mickelson could do about it. He had celebrated there before, most famously eight years ago when he won his first green jacket and took his young daughter in his arms, saying, “Daddy won! Can you believe it?” Now it looked like he couldn’t believe he had lost. A fourth green jacket would have put him in the company of Tiger Woods and Arnold Palmer at the Masters. A fifth major championship would have moved him among the likes of Byron Nelson and Seve Ballesteros. But it all fell apart, in large part because once again Phil couldn’t help being Phil. He aimed where other players wouldn’t dare go on the par-3 fourth hole, certain that his calculations were better than theirs. The target wasn’t even the green, but Mickelson was sure he could escape with par from the bunker or anywhere left of there — even the grandstand. He thought too much, and disaster ensued. Nothing new there, he’s been doing it his whole career. Six years ago it cost him the U.S. Open at Winged Foot when he famously pulled out a driver he didn’t need on the 18th tee. The ball went sideways and he made double bogey, prompting him to proclaim, “I am such an idiot.” Those listening then could only nod their heads in agreement. Those listening to his explanation for why he gave this Masters away could only look at him in perplexed silence. “Tactically I hit that shot where I had to hit it, which is at the bunker,” Mickelson insisted. “Anything left of the pin is fine but the right side is almost a sure bogey.” Well, almost anything. Mickelson’s shot missed the bunker, careened off a metal railing on the grandstand and ended up in some bushes in a wooded area short and left of the green on the par-3. He could have taken an unplayable, but that would have meant going back to the tee and hitting what would be his third shot, so he


Masters Continued from D1 Oosthuizen had never made a double eagle in his life. His Masters ended by watching a shot he didn’t know existed. After hitting short of the 10th green in the playoff, he was in the fairway and could only see a trail of fans leading into the woods. “I had no idea where he was,” Oosthuizen said. “Where I stood from, when the ball came out, it looked like a curve ball. Unbelievable shot. That shot he hit definitely won him the tournament.” Watson, who made four straight birdies on the back nine and closed with a 4-under 68, made it all sound so simple. Maybe it’s because he has hit so many shots like that before. Maybe it’s because he is one of the few players who doesn’t have a swing coach, and never has. “Hooked it about 40 yards, hit about 15 feet off the ground until it got under the tree and then started rising,” Watson said. “Pretty easy.” The hard part was holding back tears. He was blubbering hard on the 10th green, shoulders heaving and face contorted, for so many reasons. Just two weeks ago, he and his wife adopted a baby boy, Caleb. The first person on the green was his mother — his father died right after the Ryder Cup in 2010. He held her tight and cried some more. As incredible as it all seemed, Gerry “Bubba” Watson, Jr., the powerful lefty with a million shots at his disposal, was a major champion. “I never got this far in my dreams,” Watson said in Butler cabin, where defending champion Charl Schwartzel helped him into the green jacket. “It’s

tried to improvise. Lefty turned righty, and it wasn’t pretty. He turned a wedge around and tried to hack the ball out, but it moved only about a yard. He did it again, pulling it behind the left bunker, then compounded his mistake by chunking his next one in the bunker. When it was all over he had made six, his second triple bogey of the tournament. There was still lots of golf to be played, but the damage had already been done. “If it goes into people and stops right there, no problem,” Mickelson said. “If it goes into the grandstand, no problem. It hit the metal railing and shot in the trees. And not only was it unplayable, but I couldn’t take an unplayable. There was no place to go other than back

a blessing. To go home to my new son, it’s going to be fun.” Oosthuizen was trying to join Gene Sarazen in the 1935 Masters as the only major champions to win with a double eagle in the final round. The former British Open champion made one clutch putt after another on the back nine, none more important than a 4-footer on the 18th for a 69 to force the playoff. Both had a good look at birdie at No. 18 on the first extra hole and missed. Watson, dressed all in white and using a pink driver, hooked his tee shot on the 10th into the trees, and it appeared he would have no shot at reaching the green. Walking down the fairway toward an uncertain lie, he and caddie Ted Scott recalled their credo — “If I have a swing, I’ve got a shot.” Among his idols in golf are Seve Ballesteros, who built a career on magical escapes like this one. It was the first Masters since Ballesteros died last May. Watson also admires Phil Mickelson, who never saw a flag that frightened him. “I attack. I always attack,” Watson said. “I don’t like to go to the center of the greens. I want to hit the incredible shot. Who doesn’t? That’s why we play the game of golf, to pull off the amazing shot.” They finished at 10-under 278, two shots ahead of four players who kept it close and made the Masters as compelling as ever. Mickelson, playing in the final group for the fourth time, recovered from a triple bogey on the par-3 fourth hole and still managed to stay in the game. He could only make two-putt birdies on the two par 5s on the back and shot 72. “It’s disappointing that I didn’t grab that fourth green jacket,” said Mickelson, whose

to the tee. So I took the risk of trying to hit it a few times.” To be fair, the 240-yard hole was playing tough, second on this day only to No. 1. But 41 of the 63 players in the final round managed to make par by aiming at the green, and only one player beside Mickelson made worse than bogey. His triple bogey on the way to a final-round 72 was the worst score of the day on the hole, not that they give out any awards for that. What made it even worse was that this Masters was Mickelson’s for the taking. He had the experience of being in the final group, and he was coming off a nifty 66 the day before that left him just a shot behind Peter Hanson. They didn’t even need to find a green jacket to fit him in the

wardrobe closet in the clubhouse, because Mickelson had won three already. He was practically bubbling with excitement the night before, so eager was he to get out and show Bubba Watson and others how the final round is supposed to be done at the Masters. “I love it here and I love nothing more than being in the last group on Sunday at the Masters,” Mickelson said then. “It’s the greatest thing in professional golf.” Take away the fourth hole, and it was great. Mickelson made birdies on three par-5s coming in, and still had an outside chance to get in a playoff if he could have made birdies on two of the last three holes. Ifs are not allowed in tournament golf, but if Mickelson had just made par on No. 4 like 41 other players did he would have been celebrating on the 18th green instead of commiserating with his family outside the clubhouse. He’s spent the better part of his career analyzing — and over analyzing — what should be a simple game. He might have won eight major championships by now instead of four had he not been so sure that he had a better way to do things on the golf course than any of the greats and not-so-greats who came before him. He’s stubborn in his ways, certain of his beliefs. He’s also immensely gifted, and he’s been right often enough to make himself the second best player of his time as well as a fan favorite who smiles even when things go bad. Mickelson wasn’t smiling on the clubhouse lawn while Watson and Louis Oosthuizen traded birdie misses on the 18th green a few hundred yards away, then headed down the 10th hole where Watson was crowned the new champion. This one hurt because he knew how close he was, and knew that at the age of 41 he might not have too many chances left. Still, he wasn’t about to admit he was wrong. “I can’t feel like I lost it,” he said. “But it just didn’t happen for me.” Maybe next year he’ll aim for the green.

Washington State’s Abe Lodwick, right, looks to shoot as Pittsburgh’s Nasir Robinson defends in the second half of the College Basketball Invitational tournament championship game in March in Pittsburgh.

Lodwick Continued from D1 And Lodwick saved his best for last. The Cougars (19-18 overall), who were ravaged by injury for most of the 201112 campaign, leaned on Lodwick during postseason play. He scored at least 10 points in each of the first four games of the CBI, including a then career-best 16 in the second round against Wyoming. “I feel like I hit my stride in these last few games,” said Lodwick, who had scored in double digits just three times in his first three seasons. “A lot of that was just due to the season going on a little bit longer. I still had my legs a little bit.” He would outdo his Wyoming performance just two days later against Oregon State in Corvallis — scoring 23 points on a blistering eight-of-12 shooting night that included five three-pointers. “It was the best game of my career and it was fun to do in Oregon,” recalled Lodwick, who said he had friends in the stands at Gill Coliseum but little family because Lodwick’s sister was giving birth. “It was just one of those nights where everything was going in.” Lodwick scored 16 more points in the opening game of the best-of-three CBI final series against Pitt. But the Panthers, Bone observed, focused their defense on Lodwick during the second and third games, limiting him to 17 points combined. That’s right. A player who averaged about three shots a game in his junior season had become a focal point of a Big East defense. Now brimming with confidence, Lodwick said

he will begin shopping for an agent and spend the summer training for a pro career, aiming at landing a spot in Europe or elsewhere by the fall. “It’s a learning process that I am kind of learning on the fly, too,” Lodwick said of trying to find his place in pro basketball. What are his chances? Pretty good, according to Bone, who gushes about Lodwick’s leadership abilities and team-first attitude. “Abe’s athletic, he’s strong, he can really stroke it, and he is the epitome of a team basketball player,” Bone said. “He will try to do EXACTLY what you want every possession. There is always a role for a guy like that in the game in any country.” But before all that, Lodwick — who is hoping to make time for a post-graduation golf trip with friends — has a chance to reflect on what he has accomplished. Most of those accomplishments, he said, are of the intangible variety. After all, Lodwick is about the team. A team he now is forced to leave. “The teams that I’ve been part of, the guys who I’ve met, and the coaches I’ve played for, and even the trainers and managers — everybody I’ve met here — it’s something I will remember for the rest of my life,” he said. “To think that I won’t have another opportunity to play here, it’s kind of sad. “On one hand, five years is a long time, and I am definitely ready to move on to whatever the next stage of my life is. But I love Washington State.” — Reporter: 541-617-7868, zhall@

wife and three kids flew in from San Diego on Sunday. “It’s disappointing that I didn’t make it happen on the back nine and get the putts to fall, even though I felt like I was hitting them pretty good. I gave them all good chances. I just couldn’t quite get them to go.” Lee Westwood of England ran off three straight birdies, but the last one hurt. He had an 8-foot eagle putt to tie for the lead on the 15th and missed it, and a final birdie on the 18th gave him a 68 and only made it look close. “I don’t feel like giving up just yet,” said Westwood, who had his seventh top-3 finish in a major since the 2008 U.S. Open. Matt Kuchar tied for the lead with a short eagle putt on the 15th, then bogeyed the 16th for a 69. Peter Hanson of Sweden, who had a one-

shot lead going into the final round, didn’t make a birdie until the 15th hole. He closed with a 73. Watson, a 33-year-old from Bagdad, Fla., in the Panhandle, won for the fourth time in his career and moves to No. 4 in the world, making him the highest-ranked American in golf. He became the fifth lefthander to win the Masters in the last 10 years. And he created a legion of fans — especially in Georgia, where he returned to school to get his degree — who chanted, “Bubba! Bubba! Bubba!” as he hugged everyone he could find on the 10th green. “I don’t play the sport for fame. I don’t try to win tournaments for fame,” Watson said. “I don’t do any of that. It’s just me. I’m just Bubba. I goof around. I joke around. “I just want to be me and play golf.”

Washington Continued from D1 “Anything transportation related that you can think of, it’s in the transportation bill,” Potwin observes. The National Bike Summit delegates want to ensure that some of the funding in the bill remains dedicated to cycling and walking. According to statistics from the League of American Bicyclists and America Bikes organizations, which are available at the league’s website,, in the state of Oregon alone, “average annual funds for bicycling and walking” total more than $8.9 million, and that money goes toward more than 60 cycling and walking projects per year. In Central Oregon’s congressional district, District 2, the numbers are $2.3 million for 10 projects. While that seems like a massive amount of money — and that is just in our state and our specific area — it pales in comparison to the costs allocated to other types of transportation. Another stat from the league and America Bikes: Just 1.5 percent of federal transportation funding goes to projects for biking and walking. That explains the vigor with which Potwin and other National Bike Summit delegates advocate for those transportation modes. Besides, at least in Oregon, cycling pays off. Oregon boasts more than 270 cycling retail stores, more than 1,300

This year’s time trial event will feature an out-and-back course that winds out of the Crooked River and is based out of Crooked River Park in Prineville. The new road race course will start and finish at Mt. Bachelor ski area. Participants will traverse a clockwise loop from Century Drive south past Edison Sno-park and then back on Century Drive along Sparks Lake. The criterium

jobs in the cycling industry and annual gross revenue attributable to cycling of $113,773,000, again according to statistics provided by the League of American Bicyclists and America Bikes. At the summit, delegates met with scores of senators and representatives, Potwin says. Along with other state delegates, Potwin met with a trio of Oregon lawmakers: Rep. Greg Walden and Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley. “Having that ability to meet somebody face to face, shake their hand, and ask them a specific question (regarding their support of federal funding for cycling and walking) but backing up that question with all the data that we have to go along with it is basically what we were doing,” Potwin says. “That was the entire purpose of this conference.” Also during the summit, Potwin attended addresses by keynote speakers and politicians — Oregon Reps. Peter DeFazio and Earl Blumenauer among them — and got to test out the Capitol Bikeshare program. A docking station, one of about 150 scattered throughout the national’s capital, was conveniently located just outside his hotel. As for that March 31 vote on the transportation bill, the House opted to extend the bill for 90 days. The bill originally passed in 2005 and has been extended nine times — more than 900 days in all — since it expired for the first time in 2009. Potwin says the extension was a “clean” one.

“A ‘clean’ extension means that they keep all the current policies and programs as they are in the transportation bill and just extended out,” Potwin explains. “A ‘dirty’ extension means that they are messing with the policies, basically.” But cycling and walking advocates would likely agree that the buck needs to stop being passed eventually. “We need to look forward into the next five to 10 years,” Potwin says of a new bill. “We need to get this done so we can keep doing the work that we’re doing.” Given that, Potwin urges citizens to be involved in the process by taking a moment to write to their politicians in Washington to ask for dedicated federal funding for cycling and walking. That seems like something a sizable number of Central Oregon residents should be interested in doing. “I think it’s important for Central Oregonians to know what’s happening because it directly affects them in many different ways, financially, economically,” Potwin explains. “Their transportation system is at stake here and how it evolves in the future, where we’re going to go as a country, let alone as a state, let alone as a county or a community. So this is something that we feel strongly that people need to pay attention to and not let it go underneath the rug, if you will.” — Reporter: 541-383-0393, amiles@
