Bend council OKs fire deal with cost-of-living raises Inside • Money for OSU and other council news, A6

By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

The Bend City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to approve a new three-year contract with the city firefighters’ union. The tentative agreement

provides cost-of-living raises for firefighters, but limits health insurance for retirees in the future. The Bend Firefighters Association must still vote on the agreement before it can take effect. Councilor Jim Clinton

said the cooperation of firefighters in controlling costs helps the city. “We continue to have very serious funding challenges for public safety in this city and we’ve fallen behind what other cities are able to provide,” Clin-

ton said. “I wouldn’t say it’s a crisis, but it’s something we really have to be careful about in the future because the revenues don’t go up as quickly as the need to improve services.” See Council / A6

Massive wildfires last month left more than half a million acres of grassland in southeast Oregon blackened. Now federal officials are figuring out how to help the land recover, said Mark Wilkening, spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management in Vale. The agency oversees most of the acreage burned in the 557,648acre Long Draw Fire, the 160,853-acre Miller Homestead

Fire and the 18,172-acre Bonita Complex of fires. “At this point it is all still a little preliminary,” Wilkening said. “We are in the process of putting a plan together.” The rehabilitation plans will specify how long free-range cattle and wild horses should be kept off the land and how to revive habitat for the sage grouse, a chicken-sized bird being considered for federal Endangered Species Act protections.

Wild horses will be removed for 2 years By Dylan J. Darling The Bulletin

The Bureau of Reclamation is planning an emergency gathering of wild horses that regularly roam grassland burned by the Long Draw Fire last month in southeast Oregon. The 90 horses in the Jackies Butte herd will be rounded up in the next couple of weeks, said

Mark Wilkening, spokesman for the Bureau of Land Management in Vale. Another 100 in the Coyote Lake herd made be brought in as well. In burning 557,648 acres, the Long Draw fire consumed much of the grasses the horses in the Jackies Butte herd rely on for food, he said.

Upcoming vote is key for OSU branch • Campus with 4-year aspirations seeks to offer lower-level courses By Ben Botkin The Bulletin

The long-term future of Oregon State University-Cascades Campus will be heavily determined by a decision the State Board of Higher Education is expected to make Friday. The board, meeting at Portland State University, will vote on a proposal that will allow OSU-Cascades to offer lower division courses as it aspires to become a four-year university. It’s part of a plan aimed at reaching an enrollment of up to 5,000 students by 2025. If the proposal passes, the changes will start to take shape sooner. The first part of the plan, spanning 2012 to 2014, would roll out lower-division courses that would meet requirements needed for international students enrolled in OSU’s business degree program. A couple of lower-level courses, also available for residential students, are slated to be offered in the upcoming academic year if the proposal is approved. Those include a math class in the spring term and a business statistics in the winter term, said Jane Reynolds, director of enrollment services at OSU-Cascades. “We’re awaiting the decision and then we’re ready to go, as long as we get the go-ahead,” she said. Because of the added courses, international students will have the option to transfer to OSU-Cascades after spending their first year at the Corvallis campus. See OSU / A6

DADAAB, Kenya — is rib cage rose and fell with tight, rapid breaths. Saad Siyat looked shrunken beneath the hospital blanket. His wide-set eyes rolled up into his head, and his body burned with fever. The boy was unconscious and convulsing when his aunt brought him to the hospital at Ifo camp, one of five massive camps in eastern Kenya filled with Somali refugees. The family had arrived months earlier after a nearly 300-mile journey across the desert. Saad was suffering from pneumonia and chronic undernourishment — in particular, a protein deficiency known as kwashiorkor. The name derives from a West African term for “rejected one,” a child pushed from his mother’s breast to make way for a newborn. Saad was 21⁄2 years old. He weighed 18 pounds. “This child has been sick a very long time,” Dr. Ibtisam Salim said as she made her rounds in the hospital’s stabilization center, a concrete building filled with emaciated children lying on squeaky metal beds. She felt Saad’s forehead and questioned his aunt, who was shooing away flies and using a soiled rag to wipe mucus from his oxygen and feeding tubes. The boy’s mother was at home, tending to her seven other children. Salim gently held up one of his feet, to show the swelling, a classic symptom of protein deficiency. “Malnutrition opens up a very big window for infection,” Salim said. “It destroys their defenses.” She heard a gasp and stiffened. “Excuse me,” she said, wheeling around on her heels and digging in her bag. She pulled out a stethoscope and held it to the boy’s chest. With the tips of three fingers, she began pumping rapidly on his frail torso.

Newly arriving refugees, mostly Somalis, crowd into a line to be admitted into Dadaab, the largest refugee camp in the world. At times, more than 1,000 people arrive each day, surviving an arduous journey across a stark and forbidding landscape just to get there. Once admitted to one of the three camps that make up Dadaab, they join the more than 450,000 people already there.

Global hunger, supply and demand Nearly 1 billion people remain chronically hungry, despite decades of international intervention. One factor is that grain production has not kept pace with soaring consumption.

Where life is precarious Around the world, population is increasing most rapidly in places where life is most precarious. Across Africa and in parts of South Asia and Latin America, hundreds of millions of people live on the edge of starvation. A drought, flood or outbreak of violence can push them over the brink. Many end up on the march, crossing borders in search of relief. Some arrive in places like Dadaab, famished and desperately ill. Millions more are displaced within their own countries. They represent one face of hunger in a world that, on paper at least, produces enough food to feed all 7 billion inhabitants. Somalia, a nation of 10 million, has one of the highest birthrates in the world, averaging 6.4 children per woman. Runaway population growth, food scarcity and political strife have combined to cause a mass exodus. One-fourth of Somalis have fled their homes. Last year, during the worst of a three-year drought, shortage turned to famine. Forty percent of Somali children who reached the refugee camps in Dadaab were malnourished. Despite emergency feeding and medical treatment, many died within 24 hours. More commonly, children live on tenuously, the effects of chronic malnutrition masked by the swelling caused by kwashiorkor.

hospital, it can be too late.

An ephemeral revolution It has been four decades since advances in agriculture known as the Green Revolution seemed to promise relief from this kind of mass suffering. An American plant breeder named Norman Borlaug won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 for helping to develop high-yield, disease-resistant varieties of wheat and other grains, making it possible to triple harvests around the world. Mankind finally seemed to be gaining ground on its longtime nemesis: pervasive hunger. Yet Borlaug cautioned against hubris: “The frightening power of human reproduction must also be curbed,” he said. “Otherwise, the success of the Green Revolution will be ephemeral only.” Today, with nearly twice as many people on the planet, his words seem sadly prescient. Nearly 1 billion people are malnourished, according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. At least 8 million die every year of hungerrelated diarrhea, pneumonia and other illnesses — more

than succumb to AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. A child dies of hunger every 11 seconds.

Enough for all — on paper In raw volume, the world’s farmers produce enough food for everyone. People go hungry in developing countries because they can’t afford to buy food and can’t grow enough on their own. Inadequate transportation and storage aggravate shortages. By midcentury, global food production could simply be insufficient. There will be at least 2 billion more mouths to feed, and an expanding middle class will consume more grain-fed beef, pork and other meats. To meet the demand, the world’s farmers will have to double their crop production by 2050, according to researchers’ calculations. Jonathan Foley, a University of Minnesota climatologist, says it’s the challenge of the 21st century: “How will we feed 9 billion people without destroying the planet?” Most of Earth’s best farmland is already under cultivation, and prime acreage is being lost every year to expanding cities and deserts,

contamination from agricultural chemicals and other causes. Carving large new tracts of farmland out of the world’s remaining forests and grasslands would exact a heavy toll, destroying wildlife and unleashing climate-warming gases now locked in soils and vegetation. Complicating the problem is that rivers and aquifers are running dry, and heat waves and droughts associated with global warming are withering crops. Pests and diseases thought to have been vanquished are bedeviling farmers again, often in more virulent forms.

No solutions in sight Major international research projects are under way to develop hybrid crops to withstand these challenges. But such efforts take decades, and there is no guarantee of success. “The easy things have been done,” said Nina V. Fedoroff, a biotechnology expert at Pennsylvania State University. “The problems that are left are hard.” The traditional low-tech solution to hunger — mass migration — is increasingly impractical on a crowded planet. The looming crisis is expected to be most severe in Africa, where birthrates are high and where the Green Revolution never took hold. By midcentury, the continent’s population is expected to double — to 2 billion. Africa already is home to nearly 30 percent of the planet’s chronically hungry. About 400 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live on less than $1.25 a day, most of which is spent on food. Increasingly, they are competing with the appetites of wealthier nations, which are snapping up some of Africa’s best rain-fed farmland to secure long-term food supplies. The U.S., China and other countries are also using more grain to fatten livestock and make ethanol, pushing up prices. All of this leaves more and more people on the edge.

Highlights: In 216 B.C., during the Second Punic War, Carthaginian forces led by Hannibal defeated the Roman army in the Battle of Cannae. In 1776, members of the Continental Congress began attaching their signatures to the Declaration of Independence. In 1876, frontiersman “Wild Bill” Hickok was shot and killed while playing poker at a saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, by Jack McCall, who was later hanged. In 1909, the original Lincoln “wheat” penny first went into circulation, replacing the “Indian Head” cent. In 1922, Alexander Graham Bell, generally regarded as the inventor of the telephone, died in Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 75. In 1923, the 29th president of the United States, Warren G. Harding, died in San Francisco; Vice President Calvin Coolidge became president. In 1964, the destroyer USS Maddox suffered light damage from North Vietnamese patrol torpedo boats in the Gulf of Tonkin. In 1985, 135 people were killed when a Delta Air Lines jetliner crashed while attempting to land at DallasFort Worth International Airport. In 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait, seizing control of the oil-rich emirate. (The Iraqis were later driven out in Operation Desert Storm.)

T S Blackouts part of doing business

House Republicans use vote to promote tax plan

By Ravi Nessman

The Associated Press

Tribune Washington Bureau

GHAZIABAD, India — Work making potato chip display racks at Jayraj Kumar’s factory barely paused when much of India’s power grid collapsed. The backup generators kicked in automatically and the electric saws, presses and welding machines kept running, just like they do during the five-hour power cuts the factory in suburban Delhi suffers nearly every day. India’s unreliable power system has forced businesses to create a workaround electricity system of noisy, dirty diesel generators that prepared them well when the world’s worst blackout hit the country Tuesday. But the trouble has also vastly increased businesses’s expenses, dragged down their productivity and hampered economic growth in the country. ‘‘Running a factory is very tough here,” Kumar said. Power Minister Veerappa Moily said Wednesday the government would not allow a recurrence of the massive power outages. On Monday, 370 million people lost power for hours when the northern grid collapsed. On Tuesday, an estimated 700 million had no electricity after the grid collapsed again, dragging down two neighboring grids. Moily said an investigation had begun and while he didn’t want to cast blame yet, he cautioned states not to take more than their allotted power. “If they overdraw, this is the result. They can see for themselves. The entire grid will go black,” he said.

WASHINGTON — House Republicans voted to keep tax rates at their current level through next year, using one of their last votes before recessing for most of August to approve politically symbolic legislation that President Barack Obama has vowed to veto. The vote Wednesday was intended to showcase the contrast between the GOP view on taxes and the one pushed by Obama and congressional Democrats. The Senate, with its Democratic majority, already has approved a measure that would allow income tax rates to rise on earnings above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples — a move that would affect the top 2 percent of earners. With no compromise in sight, the divide between the parties on taxes is expected to fuel the fall campaigns. The current tax rates, first approved under the George W. Bush administration, expire at the end of the year. Taxes will rise automatically if Congress fails to find

Pigs walks past Indian rag pickers working next to high-tension electricity pylons Wednesday in New Delhi, India. Factories and workshops across India were up and running again Wednesday, a day after a the worst power blackout in world history.

The government needed to investigate ways to resolve the disparity between supply and demand, perhaps with congestion pricing, plugging leaks in the distribution system and bringing more power plants on line, he said. Hundreds of millions of Indians have no access to electricity anyway. Many who do were insulated from the blackouts’ effect by the coping systems they use to handle the smaller power cuts that are routine across the country. The private Max Hospital in New Delhi said its generators were set up to fully power the facility. ‘‘The electrical system is so designed that patients do not feel even a flicker of power disruption at any point of time,”

the hospital said in a statement. Kumar, 56, started his business turning metal wire into display racks 23 years ago with just three employees. Now his company, The Rhino, runs a factory of 200 workers that churns out 1,500 red racks a day for clients from PepsiCo to Nestle that are ubiquitous in markets across India. When the company opened its new factory in this Delhi suburb three years ago, ‘‘we knew that power would be a problem,” he said. ‘‘From the very first day, whenever we start an office or factory, we immediately think of having a decent power backup,” he said. Behind the cavernous whitewashed factory, lined

with workers operating spot welding machines and kicking up sparks as they saw through metal, stands a large, green 80-megawatt generator on a brick foundation. In a corner on the ground floor is another generator rigged with a truck ignition that starts with a belch of gray smoke. Nearby, two more generators are hooked up, and, taking no chances, Kumar bought a fifth one Wednesday. The factory runs 16 hours a day, at least five of them on generator power, he said. This backup system comes at a huge price for Kumar’s business. ‘‘Generators are meant for emergencies, they aren’t meant for production purposes,” he said.

Employee misbehavior worsens TSA’s shoddy image

Syrian rebels denounced for executions of loyalists

By Jamie Goldberg

Los Angeles Times

Tribune Washington Bureau

BEIRUT — Syrian President Bashar Assad on Wednesday exhorted his military to maintain “continued preparedness,” as human rights groups condemned an apparent rebel execution of Assad loyalists in the beleaguered northern city of Aleppo. Assad lauded his troops’ role in “confronting the criminal terrorist gangs,” a reference to the rebels fighting across a wide swath of the country, in a statement marking the anniversary of the founding of the army, state media reported. Meanwhile, video surfaced online appearing to show the execution of members of a loyalist clan in an Aleppo neighborhood. In the video, apparent rebels lead a group of prisoners identified as pro-government paramilitary fighters known as shabiha into a courtyard. Several prisoners look bloodied and dazed. One is wearing only boxer shorts. The fighters shout “God is great!” as the prisoners are shoved against a wall. The fighters step back and open fire with their AK47 rifles for more than 30 seconds, apparently squeezing off hundreds of rounds in a frenzy

WASHINGTON — The Transportation Security Administration suffers from an image problem, and recent criminal and negligent behavior by airport screeners has made matters worse. Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Homeland Security Transportation subcommittee, highlighted the agency’s troubles at a hearing Wednesday. “Stealing from checked luggage, accepting bribes from drug smugglers, sleeping or drinking while on duty — this kind of criminal behavior and negligence has contributed significantly to TSA’s shattered public image,” the Alabama Republican said. Yet Rogers, who has criticized the TSA in the past for not appropriately disciplining employee misconduct, said he was optimistic about its progress. John Halinski, the new deputy administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, pointed to the agency’s Office of Professional Responsibility, which investigates allegations of misconduct, as an important part of holding employees responsible for their actions. But a number of incidents in recent months have diminished public confidence in the TSA. Eight TSA screeners at Newark Liberty International Airport were fired for violations that included sleeping on the job; five screeners at Southwest Florida International Airport were let go for failing to perform required random screenings; and eight federal air marshals were dismissed for drinking at work. Last week, two TSA screeners pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges after they accepted bribes to help smugglers get drugs through security at Los Angeles International Airport.

of shooting and shouting. Afterward, the camera zooms in on what appears to be four bloodied bodies. Some reports identified the execution site as a school in Aleppo. The opposition has said that those targeted were members of the Berri clan, a family with close ties to the government. Among those reportedly killed was the clan leader, Zeino Berri. Rebels accused him and others of committing atrocities against civilians. But the executions drew condemnation of the rebel forces. Several opposition groups also publicly denounced the killings. “Such reprisals are never justified,” Nadim Houry of Human Rights Watch said on Twitter. Some reports indicated that the targeted clan has thousands of followers who could seek revenge, adding to the hostilities in Aleppo. Rights monitors have documented extrajudicial killings and other abuses by both sides during the Syrian uprising. Syria’s military has suffered heavy losses and numerous defections that have strained its capabilities. A United Nations-commissioned report in June concluded that “regular forces are exhibiting a certain fatigue.”

Still, the military retains a substantial edge in training and weaponry compared with the various rebel militias, which are mostly lightly armed, contain many untrained civilians and have no central command. Government troops and rebels are fighting for control of Aleppo, Syria’s most populous city, in what could be a decisive battle in the almost 17-month uprising against Assad’s rule. The U.N. confirmed Wednesday that the military had deployed jets firing rockets and machine guns at rebel positions in Aleppo. The opposition says the government also has used helicopter gunships and artillery to pound rebel-held districts. Rebel commanders say they hope that using guerrilla-style tactics in a dense urban landscape will help neutralize the army’s advantage in firepower. Change your mind. Change your life.

Obama, Congress move to further sanction Iran By Joby Warrick The Washington Post

The Obama administration and Congress moved separately Tuesday to tighten the economic screws on Iran, betting that additional pressure from sanctions will force Iranian officials to accept a compromise to curb their nuclear activities. The White House imposed new penalties on two foreign banks — one in China, another in Iraq — for allegedly acting as surrogates for Iranian financial institutions that have been nearly shut down by previous rounds of U.S. and European sanctions. The administration also announced expanded restrictions on the purchase of Iranian petrochemical products, such as methanol and xylene. Iran’s petroleum industry already faces tough U.N. sanctions as well as a Europewide embargo on crude exports. Iran has resisted compromising on its nuclear program — which it maintains is solely for the purpose of peaceful energy production — through five rounds of international negotiations.

The Associated Press

CAIRO — Egypt’s incoming Cabinet will have few Islamists and some holdovers from the outgoing military-backed team in key positions, according to a partial list released by state media Wednesday, a day before the first government under the country’s new Islamist president is sworn in. The choices by President Mohammed Morsi’s prime minister, Hesham Kandil, are seen as a test of the intentions of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt’s official news media listed more than 20 ministers in

the new Cabinet, so far including only two members from the Brotherhood — an apparent attempt to calm concerns over the group’s intention to dominate the government. The Brotherhood appointees will hold the higher education and the housing ministries. Highlighting the difficulties of forming a government with broad appeal, Kandil took more than a week to nominate his ministers. The government must also work through a power struggle between the newly elected president and the military council, which ruled Egypt during 17 months of transition.

President Barack Obama, in a statement announcing the new sanctions, said the administration remained committed to finding a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear crisis, but declared that the “onus is on Iran to abide by its international obligations.” The announcement came hours before U.S. lawmakers were due to vote on a bipartisan measure that would slap still more economic sanctions on Iran. The compromise bill, approved by House and Senate negotiators late Monday, would expand penalties on companies doing business with Iran’s national oil company, and also would make it harder for Iran to extract payment for any petroleum it does sell.

agreement by Dec. 31. “We stand for no tax increases,” said freshman Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y. The Republican plan would, however, raise taxes for millions of low-income households by ending tax breaks for families with children that were passed in 2009 as part of the economic stimulus legislation. Democrats, emboldened by polls showing most Americans favor their side of the argument, argued that Republicans should not hold tax breaks for most Americans hostage for a “bonus” break for upper-income earners. “We all admire financial success, but when we give away trillions in tax cuts we cannot afford to those who need them the least, it’s the middle class who has to make up the difference,” said Rep. Xavier Becerra of California, a top Democrat in the House. The House voted 256-171, with 19 Democrats from mostly conservative districts or tough election battles crossing party lines to join Republicans. One Republican voted no.

Romney foreign Tea party insurgent captures GOP nod policy: Some things different, some not TEXAS SENATE RACE

By Erik Eckholm

New York Times News Service

By David Lightman and William Douglas McClatchy Newspapers

WARSAW — In some areas, he’d be different from President Barack Obama. In others, even when his fiery rhetoric suggests a dramatic change, Mitt Romney actually would act much like Obama. The subject is national defense and foreign policy, key areas of U.S. government largely overshadowed in a presidential campaign focused overwhelmingly on a struggling economy at home. Now, the gaffes and missteps of his recent overseas trip aside, Romney has laid out the most detailed look to date at what a President Romney would do to keep the United States safe and help it prosper abroad, how he would protect allies and stand up to foes. He’d take a harder line against Russia. He’d press China on trade. He’d add 100,000 U.S. troops and build more ships for the Navy. He’d deploy and maintain two aircraft carrier groups in waters near Iran to signal U.S. resolve. He’d arm Syrian rebels who are friendly to the U.S. But Romney’s policies would dovetail with Obama’s in some major ways. He’d give the military more control over the pace of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but he’d keep Obama’s pledge to get U.S. troops out by the end of 2014. He’d signal more toughness toward Iran by sending more Navy ships but he’d follow the same broad approach to Iran — sanctions backed by the possibility of military force. To Simon Serfaty, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan German Marshall Fund of the United States, Romney’s approach suggests a return to the neoconservative philosophy of President George

W. Bush’s administration, particularly on Israel. But others noted that despite Romney’s language of bold changes, the practical effect on policy is not likely to change radically, at least initially, from that of the Obama administration. “Once you’re in the White House you’re captured by the DNI (Director of National Intelligence), Homeland Security, the entire bureaucracy,” said Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff for Bush administration Secretary of State Colin Powell. In a significant shift, Romney would be less inclined to negotiate with the Palestinians, Syria, Iran, or any other nation or interest in the region that might pose a threat to Israel. On Syria, Romney, like Obama, urges the ouster of President Bashar Assad. Unlike Obama, he supports working with U.S. partners to identify, organize and arm opposition groups whose interests coincide with the United States. The greatest contrast between Romney and Obama may involve Russia. Romney notes that Obama reversed Bush’s decision to base a missile-shield defense system partly in Poland, which was seen as a goodwill gesture toward Russia. “If that gesture was designed to inspire goodwill from Russia,” Romney said, “it clearly missed the mark.” Romney said he would review the implementation of the START nuclear arms treaty, apparently raising the possibility that he might refuse to continue acting on it. He also said he would “confront the Russian government over its authoritarian practices” and would provide stronger support for its neighbors like Poland.

HOUSTON — Ted Cruz, an insurgent backed by the tea party, easily defeated the candidate favored by Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday in a runoff election for the Republican Senate nomination that revealed a wide rift in Texas between the party establishment and restless anti-incumbent activists on the right. With the come-from-behind victory over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Cruz is heavily favored to win the Senate seat being vacated in November by Kay Bailey Hutchison and appears likely to become a star of the national conservative movement. “We did it,” Cruz told the cheering crowd gathered at a Marriott Hotel in Houston to claim victory. “Millions of Texans, millions of Americans are rising up to reclaim our country, defend liberty and restore the Constitution.” Cruz, 41, is the latest conservative rebel to bring down an established party leader, tapping into frustrations within the Republican ranks nationwide. These dissident triumphs

include, in this year’s primaries, the defeat of Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana by Richard Mourdock and Deb Fischer’s win over a veteran Republican for the Senate nomination in Nebraska. They also echo Marco Rubio’s Senate victory in 2010 over a Republican governor, Charlie Crist of Florida. “I love it,” said Ken Yow-

ell, 69, a retired businessman who came with his wife to Cruz’s victory party, their first time ever at a political event. “We need some conservative Christians in office,” he said, “and someone who will fight for the economy and against abortion.” Cruz, who is Cuban-American, has drawn comparisons to Rubio, another youthful Cu-

ban-American who quickly became an icon of fiscal and religious conservatives around the country. Cruz’s rapid ascent has already shaken up the Texas Republican Party, in a race watched as a test of the enduring strength of the tea party and its stringent antitax, antigovernment themes. “Mr. Cruz’s success shows that the center of the state party has moved decisively to the right,” said James Henson, a political scientist at the University of Texas. “The Republicans are in much more treacherous terrain, not because of threats from Democrats, but threats from within the party.” A Harvard-trained lawyer, a former Washington official under President George W. Bush and the former solicitor general of Texas, Cruz had argued cases before the Supreme Court but never before run for office. He turned out to be a natural campaigner, and with his implacable opposition to big government, he won the enthusiastic support of tea party activists in Texas and around the country.

Obama, citing study, skewers Romney’s tax plan By Jackie Calmes New York Times News Service

AKRON, Ohio — President Barack Obama assailed Mitt Romney for “top-down economics” in his ninth trip this year to this battleground state, brandishing a new study that found Romney’s plans would mean additional large tax cuts for millionaires at the expense of other Americans. Obama’s appearances in north-central Ohio, first in Mansfield and then at a raucous rally here, came as new polls continue to show voters split over his stewardship of the economy. He will take his case to Florida today, ahead

of the release of the latest monthly unemployment report Friday. Facing an estimated 3,000 people at a convention center here, Obama spelled out what his campaign characterizes as the fundamental differences between him and Romney over tax and spending priorities. “Pay attention here,” Obama said. “Folks making more than $3 million a year — the top one-tenth of 1 percent — they would get a tax cut under Romney’s plan that is worth almost a quarter of a million dollars.” “Hold on, it gets worse,” he added to a chorus of boos. “My opponent says he’s going to

pay for this $5 trillion plan. But under this plan, guess who gets the bill for these $250,000 tax cuts? You do. And you don’t have to take my word for it.” Obama cited a newly released study from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center of the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, two centrist Washington-based policy research organizations. The analysis concluded that the sort of tax code that Romney has proposed “would provide large tax cuts to high-income households, and increase the tax burdens on middle- and/or lower-income taxpayers.” In Akron and earlier,

Obama singled out the study’s finding that if Romney reduced or eliminated other tax breaks to offset the revenue loss of his tax cuts, as he has promised, the changes would shift $86 billion of tax burden away from high-income taxpayers and onto everyone else. Americans would lose some or all of existing tax breaks for mortgages, college tuition and health insurance. The Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee dismissed the study as partisan, noting that one of its three authors had been on the staff of Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers.

LOS ANGELES — Shell has reduced the number of exploratory offshore Arctic wells it plans to drill this year as construction delays continue on a containment barge that must be finished first, the company has announced. Weather is also a factor: Shell engineers had hoped to begin drilling in early August, before ice forms in the fall. Arctic drilling is controversial: The bitter cold could hinder cleanup of any spill. The company had hoped to finish five exploratory wells this year, but now will attempt two: one in the Beaufort Sea northeast of Alaska, and one in the Chukchi Sea between Alaska and Siberia, officials said. Its ultimate goal — 10 offshore wells in Arctic waters by the end of 2013 — remains unchanged, spokeswoman Kelly op de Weegh told the Los Angeles Times. If time allows, she said, Shell will begin drilling three more wells and cap the unfinished holes until next season. The exploratory drilling program would be the first in Arctic waters in two decades. Reducing the number of wells is the latest in a series of delays linked to the Arctic Challenger, a 38-year-old barge in Bellingham, Wash., that is being retrofitted and renovated to act as an oil spill containment system. Getting the vessel certified by the Coast Guard is Shell’s biggest hurdle. Certification depends on safety and operational systems tests. When the Arctic Challenger is ready, it will float between the Beaufort and Chukchi seas. If an oil spill couldn’t be otherwise contained, the barge would submerge a large dome to capture spilled oil, which it would bring to the surface and pump into a storage tanker for removal. It is also designed to flare off natural gas collected from malfunctioning wells.

Court OKs dismantling of Exxon Valdez in India By Mark Magnier Los Angeles Times

NEW DELHI — A ruling by India’s Supreme Court has cleared the way for the former Exxon Valdez tanker to be dismantled, the final chapter of its notorious career. The ship that dumped 11 million gallons of crude oil into Alaska’s Prince William Sound in 1989 should land on the beaches of Alang in western Gujarat state later this month, its owners said. The vessel, now named the Oriental Nicety, will be hacked apart by hundreds of low-paid laborers in the world’s largest ship graveyard. Local environmentalists asked the high court in April to block the vessel’s entry, arguing that it was laden with toxic chemicals — including mercury, arsenic and asbestos. The court ruled against them this week. Though the court allowed the ship to die in India, it ruled that future inbound “end-oflife” vessels heading for Alang would have to prove they are in compliance with the United Nations Basel Convention governing the international movement of hazardous waste, a step activists termed a victory of sorts. The ship’s owner, Priya Blue Industries, which specializes in breaking up ships, welcomed the news but said the

legal delay has cost the firm $10 million. Not only has the market value of steel and other scrap materials obtained from old ships declined, it said, but the company also had to pay the vessel’s 22-man crew as the Oriental Nicety sat anchored outside India’s 12-mile territorial limit awaiting the court’s decision. “I don’t know what they’ve been doing all day,” said Sanjay P. Mehta, a partner in the company. “But I’m sure they’ve been frustrated.” Alang is a global magnet for dying ships in part because its 38-foot tidal variation allows them to sail directly onto its six-mile beach, avoiding the need for expensive dry docks. Once beached, the ships are hacked apart by laborers working in near-Victorian conditions for a few dollars a day, many handling oxyacetate torches without shoes or protective helmets. Since it opened in 1983, Alang has reduced some 6,000 ships to bits of metal, glass, plastic and rubber, a process sometimes called “razor-blading,” from the days when shavers made use of the recycled metal. At any given time, up to 100 ships are in various stages of deconstruction or at anchor awaiting their turn. Taking apart the former Exxon Valdez will take about

500 workers around four months, its owners said. “The court’s decision is a good one and will boost the morale of the industry,” Mehta said. “But we’re not celebrating. These bogus environmental groups have caused us extensive losses.” Gopal Krishna, an activist with the ToxicsWatch Alliance environmental group, which filed the legal challenge, disagreed. “We’re only demanding compliance with environmental laws and the Basel Convention,” he said. “What’s bogus about that?” After leaving Alaska, the Exxon Valdez was sold several times, weathered six name changes, was converted in 2008 to carry iron ore and suffered another serious accident in 2010 when it collided with a cargo ship off China. For some people living in Alaska, where memories of the 1989 spill are still fresh, word of the vessel’s final voyage ends a sad, painful chapter. “Good riddance,” said Stan Jones, a former reporter with the Anchorage Daily News who covered the accident and now works with a Prince William Sound citizens council helping to prevent similar disasters. “It was a really bad time, so people in Alaska are happy they’re breaking it up in Asia.”

FTC seeks to expand youths’ online privacy protections By Edward Wyatt New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — Seeking to further tighten rules on online collection or disclosure of children’s personal information, the Federal Trade Commission proposed restrictive requirements on Wednesday on companies and websites that target youths or that have


young audiences. The proposal expands restrictions that the commission originally proposed last fall after it found that regulations governing the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act had not kept up with advances in Internet technology. The commission’s proposals were released publicly af-

ter they were first disclosed by The Wall Street Journal. If adopted by the commission, the proposed rules would dictate that both the operator of a website that is directed at children and any third-party advertising network or application would be responsible for complying with the child privacy law, generally known

as COPPA. The act already requires Web companies to notify parents and obtain consent when personal information is collected from children under the age of 13. But the law, which took effect in 2000, did not envision the now-common practice of including add-ons on children’s’ sites.



Range Continued from A1 “We are going to talk with the greatest minds about sage brush and how can we get it growing back,” Wilkening said.

Cattle and fire Like other ranchers who leased land burned in the fires, Chris Bengoa, manager of the Lucky 7 Ranch in McDermitt, which straddles the Oregon-Nevada border, said he is looking for a place for many of his cattle to graze. The Long Draw Fire burned about 95,000 acres, or about 60 percent of the 157,000 acres of BLM land the Lucky 7 Ranch had leased this year for 1,800 head of cattle. “(We’ll) have to move them,” he said of the cattle that were set to graze on land burned in the fire. He doesn’t know where and doubts he’ll be able to find any other federally managed acres because it’s mostly already leased out. There were 16 grazing allotments on the land burned by the Long Draw Fire, Wilkening said, and six on the land charred by the Bonita Complex of fires. Whether ranchers decide to move their cattle depends on how much of the allotment burned. The amount of allotment burned varied widely at the Long Draw Fire — from about 1,200 acres of a 48,000acre allotment to all but 5 acres of a 57,000-acre allotment. Once a fire has charred grassland managed by the BLM, the agency typically keeps cattle off for at least two years, Wilkening said. That should be plenty of

time for grasses cattle depend on to return, Bengoa said. How the land, blackened now, will look next spring hinges on winter storms. “If we get a lot of snow and rain out there it will look beautiful,” he said. “It all just depends on weather to recover.” Along with displacing cattle, the fire killed several hundred head, said Colby Marshall, leader of a restoration task force for the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. More animals may still die from injuries sustained in the fires. “The overall, long-term impact we’ll still be seeing,” he said. The statewide group held meetings last week in Frenchglen, which was threatened

Sage grouse habitat While grasses may be quick to sprout again, sage brush may take 35 to 100 years to fully return, said Chris Hansen, conservation director for the Oregon Natural Desert Association. Sage brush provides food, cover and a place to nest for the sage grouse. The fires burned through strongholds of sagebrush. The Long Draw

Continued from A1 “There is just not enough forage for them,” he said. The fire also burned part of the range used by the Coyote Lake herd, which is also facing a water shortage, Wilkening said. The BLM is monitoring the herd to see if it should also be gathered. Once the wild horses are rounded up using a helicopter and cowboys, the BLM will haul them by truck to Oregon’s Wild Horse Corrals in Hines, Wilkening said. The horses will be held there, separated from other wild horses, for two years. Then BLM officials will pick 75 of the horses to release back on to the range while putting the others up for adoption.

OSU Continued from A1 Currently, students take their first two years of instruction at Central Oregon Community College or another community college before moving to the upper-level OSU-Cascades coursework to finish their degrees. In the proposal, OSU-Cascades officials stress the move to a four-year school isn’t intended to do away with its partnership with COCC. Rather, it’s intended to give students another choice in the higher education landscape. For example, students preparing for science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields prefer a four-year university instead of starting at a community college, the proposal says. Also, 60 percent of stu-

Continued from A1 The tentative agreement would cost the city $100,000 more than expected in the budget year that began in July because a cost-of-living raise proposed this year is 1 percentage point higher than the city budgeted, according to a staff report. However, the agreement includes savings on health insurance. In the past, the city provided health insurance to retired firefighters and their families until the retiree became eligible for Medicare. If both sides ratify the tentative agreement, new hires will not receive this benefit, according to the staff report. City officials have searched for ways to reign in costs in the police and fire departments so they could avoid cutting services. Money for police and fire services comes from the city general fund, which also pays for street maintenance and code enforcement. Over the next five years, the city expects property taxes and other revenue coming into the general fund to grow much more slowly — an estimated 2 percent annually — than the demand for police and fire services, which are projected to grow by 7 to 9 percent annually, said City Manager Eric King. “We continue to have a structural problem in our general fund,” King said. Indeed, the Fire Department will still come up $1 million to $2 million short of the money needed over the next three

Fire alone was 84 percent in “the best of the best” habitat for sage grouse, Hansen said. As the BLM plans how to manage the land after the fire, Hansen said ONDA, a Bendbased conservation group, asks it to consider how best to revive the sage brush. Whether that will include reseeding depends on whether the fires burned through the tops of the plants or into their roots as well. “We are concerned about how you get that back to that native sage brush component with some native grasses underneath,” he said. — Reporter: 541-617-7812,

Mental game Continued from A1 Megan Rapinoe has a routine at the Olympics. The midfielder on the American soccer team says she gets “into the zone” on the way to the stadium by putting on headphones and listening to Florence and the Machine, Kings of Leon and a little Katy Perry. Make sense? Actually, most people don’t have much of a clue about what goes into the mental side of sports, says Daniel Gould, a professor of applied sports psychology at Michigan State University. They probably wouldn’t think of singing to themselves as they step up to make a free throw. But if the game is on the line, it may not be a bad idea, says a researcher who studies one of the most unpleasant experiences in sports — choking under pressure. That’s “when we have the ability to perform at a high level, and we just can’t pull it out when it matters the most, whether it’s

OSU branch voted $250K for 4-year effort By Hillary Borrud The Bulletin

Bend city councilors voted Wednesday night to contribute $250,000 to the effort by Oregon State University-Cascades Campus to become a four-year university. The money will come from $1.18 million in unexpected revenue that officials have been discussing how to spend. Councilors said they want to contribute $125,000 in cash, and reserve an additional $125,000 to cover city development fees that OSU could incur if the plan moves ahead. OSU-Cascades staff are meeting Friday with the State Board of Higher Education to discuss plans for a four-year university, and campus Vice President Becky Johnson told city councilors last month that support from the city of Bend “would make quite a statement.” In mid-July, Johnson told city councilors the branch campus is trying to raise $4 million from the local community and $4 million from its own budget to contribute to the expansion. Then, local university officials plan to ask the state for $16 million in bonds. The total $24 million would pay for the purchase or renovation of office, research and classroom space.

By 2018, enrollment is projected to increase to 1,525 students. Between 2018 and 2025, the final part of the expansion would take place, with enrollment pegged at 3,000 to 5,000 students.

Mayor Pro Tem Jodie Barram and Councilor Jim Clinton voted against the extension. Mayor Jeff Eager was not at the meeting. More than a dozen residents who live at River’s Edge packed the meeting, and some said they were worried about increased traffic from future development and impacts on golden eagles that live in the area. Supporters of the project said it would bring economic development. The extension will require a second vote of approval to take effect.

years to balance its budget unless it lays off staff or raises revenues, according to the staff report on the labor agreement. Bend Mayor Jeff Eager had said he wanted to tie firefighters’ raises to city revenue levels, but that is not part of the proposal. City Councilor Mark Capell said firefighters have made concessions recently. “After what they’ve done for us over the last couple of years, I think this is a fair set-

tlement,” Capell said. The Bend Firefighters Association has roughly 60 members. Recently, it has made concessions that saved money for the city. In 2010, the fire department voluntarily switched to a high-deductible insurance policy. The Bend Firefighters Association also agreed to forgo a pay raise this year as part of its 2011 salary negotiations. The tentative agreement city councilors voted on Wednes-

day night would remain in effect through 2015. Under the proposal, firefighters would receive a 3 percent cost of living raise this year, with future raises based on inflation in July 2013 and July 2014. The future raises will have a floor of 2 percent and a ceiling of 4 percent, with the exact amount to be determined by the U.S. Consumer Price Index average for cities.

in the Olympics or when you’re playing with your buddies for a six-pack,” says Sian Beilock, a University of Chicago psychologist. “When all eyes are on us, when there’s something on the line, we often don’t ... put our best foot forward.” That’s certainly what appeared to happen at the Olympics this week when U.S. gymnast Danell Leyva spun out of control on the pommel horse. Then it was teammate John Orozco’s turn, as his rear end suddenly dropped onto the horse in the middle of his routine. Why do athletes choke? They start worrying about the consequences of failure, what’s on the line, and what others will think of them. That’s the word from Beilock, who has studied the topic for a decade and written a book called “Choke.” When the big moment arrives, the athlete tries to take control by thinking about the mechanics of how to toss that basketball, make that putt, or

swing that racquet. “That’s the worst thing you can do in the moment,” Beilock says. “What messes you up is not the worries, but the over-attention to detail.” So how do you keep your skill on autopilot, so it works the best? Take your mind off the details of your movement. Sing to yourself or count backward by threes as you step up to the crucial shot, advises Beilock, who used the song trick while playing lacrosse in college. Maybe you can just say “smooth” or “straight” to yourself as a mantra as you act. Another trick is to write down your worries before a big event. It’s “almost like downloading them” from your mind so “they’re less likely to pop up and distract you in the moment,” says Beilock. Several experts say a good mental game is particularly important for playing golf, which produced a spectacular failure this month at the British Open. Australian player Adam Scott

bogeyed the final four holes to blow a four-shot lead. The sport “can drive you crazy. You swing for two minutes and walk around for four hours thinking about the two minutes of swinging,” Gould says. Many golfers have problems dealing with a mistake, “and then that mistake compounds itself to another mistake and another mistake,” says Damon Burton, a professor of sport and exercise psychology at the University of Idaho. “I think every golfer can typically benefit from being able to forget about a bad last shot, and focus their attention on the next shot.” How? Burton suggests a moratorium strategy for thinking about a shot you’ve just made. Celebrate a good one or feel bad if it was a dud, but only for a brief time. “It’s all right to be disappointed, but as soon as that club goes back in the bag, that last shot is behind you,” he says. After that, when you take your next club out of your bag, “that’s a signal to focus totally on that next shot.”

Continued from A1 “I like to think of our grid much like a water system, and basically all of our pipes are at full pressure now,” said Otto Lynch, vice president of Wisconsin-based Power Line Systems, “and if one of our pipes bursts and we have to shut off that line, that just increases the pressure on our remaining pipes until another one bursts, and next thing you know, we’re in a catastrophic run and we have to shut the whole water system down.” India’s blackout was a power generation problem: It is saddled with aging coal power plants and facing resistance to new nuclear plants. This week, several plants closed suddenly and the lights went out. Although the United States will need more power plants to meet the demands of a growing population, the most immediate threat is that the delivery system will continue to fail. The huge steel towers whose power cables crisscross the country — and the transmission stations they feed — are the pipes of that system. It’s not easy to store electricity for very long, and most of it is used within a second of being produced. At the push of a button, the grid routes power where it’s needed, from state to state or region to region. It is supposed to sidestep bottlenecks or hiccups that might slow the flow. Towers are designed to withstand winds far stronger than the almost 70 mph blasts that struck Ritchie County, W.Va. But three towers in a row running parallel to Route 50 north of Ellenboro collapsed, early victims of a storm that would devastate power delivery throughout the Mid-Atlantic. “A fourth tower didn’t come down but had to be removed because it was pulled off kilter,” said Todd Meyers, spokesman for FirstEnergy, a power company that supplies electricity to five states, including Maryland. “I don’t remember a time when this many came down. This is an unusual occurrence.” Engineers are trying to figure out why the 40-year-old towers collapsed in a freak storm — whether through corrosion, foundation cracks or flying debris. But there have long been warnings that local systems, which began linking to one another in the 1920s, need an expensive overhaul. “The aging of equipment explains some of the equipment failures that lead to intermittent failures in power quality and availability,” the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) said in a report this year. “The capacity

of equipment explains why there are some bottlenecks in the grid that can also lead to brownouts and occasional blackouts.” The ASCE calculated that an additional investment of $107 billion was needed by 2020 to keep the electrical infrastructure whole. “Electricity was primarily a luxury when the majority of our grid was built 50, 60 years ago,” Lynch said. “Most people didn’t require computers to do their jobs every day. They didn’t need the Internet access. IPhones didn’t need to be charged, and communication was all hard-wired, so you could still make a phone call when the electricity was out.” Power customers in some parts of Manhattan experienced a brownout in July as Consolidated Edison reduced voltage to repair equipment and cut the systemwide load at the outset of a three-day heat wave. Texas and Southern California are considered the most vulnerable this summer, but events have shown that a fuse blown almost anywhere can leave thousands of people in the dark. A large part of downtown Boston and adjacent neighborhoods lost power in March when a connection between a power line and a transformer failed, shooting sparks that ignited mineral oil used as a cooling agent. That led to a massive fire that consumed a substation, blacking out the financial and theater districts, emptying hotels and college dormitories, and shuttering restaurants, where food spoiled after two to three days without power. The substation wreckage was too melted and twisted to determine why the connection failed. Two months later, while repairs were underway, the system short-circuited and shut down again. “This was infrastructure that was not kept up,” said Glen Weisbrod, president of the Boston-based research group that helped produce the ASCE report. “There is no doubt that this is happening in cities all over. “ Meg Mainzer-Cohen, who heads the Back Bay Association, remembers the first blackout as an economic disaster for businesses, which had to shut down for days. “Back Bay went from a bustling, vibrant neighborhood into almost a ghost town,” she said. “The fire was in a place critical to the nervous system of the electrical grid. Now we’re advocating to develop ways to work around those sorts of issues. It’s really one of those penny-wise, poundfoolish investments not to make because the amount of revenues lost by businesses was astronomical.”



Monroe’s death today might not be mysterious By Anthony McCartney The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A half century has not dimmed skeptics’ suspicions about the death of Marilyn Monroe at age 36, but the intervening decades have seen technological leaps that could alter the investigation were it to occur today. DNA, more sophisticated electronic record-keeping, drug databases and other advances would give investigators more information than they were able to glean after Monroe’s Aug. 5, 1962, death — 50 years ago this Sunday. Whether any of the tools would lead to a different conclusion — that Monroe’s death from acute barbiturate poisoning was a probable suicide — remains open to question.

“The good news is we’re very advanced from 50 years ago,” said Max Houck, a forensic consultant and co-author of “The Science of Crime Scenes.” “The bad news is, we’re still trying to put it in context.” Monroe’s death stunned the world and quickly ignited speculation that she died from a more nefarious plot than the official cause of death. The theories stem from the 35-minute gap between when Monroe was declared dead by her physician and when police were dispatched, incomplete phone records, and toxicology tests on digestive organs that were never done. Interest has also focused on whether Monroe kept a diary filled with government secrets that was taken from her bed-

room, or if she was killed to prevent her from revealing embarrassing secrets about President John F. Kennedy or his brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy. An investigation by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office 20 years after her death found no evidence of a murder conspiracy, although it theorized that Monroe may have died from an accidental overdose. The Internet, digital imaging and more sophisticated testing mean that Monroe’s death, if it occurred today, would be subject to even more forensic scrutiny. Houck said some of the important stages of the investigation remain unchanged, including the necessity to quickly interview witnesses, control access to the crime scene and

document its appearance. “Like an archaeologist, you’re trying to reconstruct past events,” he said. While Monroe’s autopsy report includes an accounting of the medications taken from her bedroom, investigators are now able to do far deeper analysis of prescriptions than in Monroe’s time. A state database allows investigators to scrutinize prescriptions issued to patients and their aliases. Doctors’ records are routinely subpoenaed. In Monroe’s case, the DA’s report noted, one of the doctors could not be located. Improved fingerprint collection procedures might have also aided Monroe investigators, said Dr. Victor Weedn, chair of the Department of Forensic Sciences at George

Washington University in Washington, D.C. DNA evidence, which police typically collect, might have only proved useful if there was a suggestion that her prescriptions had been tampered with, said Weedn, who is an expert in the use of DNA testing in death investigations. Houck said perhaps the biggest development for investigators to mine in a case similar to Monroe’s is a star’s digital footprints: their phone calls, emails, texts, tweets and other online activities. Those all now “play a huge role,” he said. Monroe’s phone records were incomplete, showing her outgoing but not her incoming calls, according to the 1982 DA’s report. “That’s not going to happen today,” Houck said.

In drought, Car sales up overall, but U.S. makers see slump is using corn for fuel still a good idea? New York Times News Service DETROIT — Auto sales in the United States cooled off in July as the two biggest U.S. carmakers, General Motors and the Ford Motor Co., reported declines that they attributed partly to lower sales to rental car fleets.

of 1.15 million vehicles during July, which was an 8.9 percent improvement over the same period a year ago. That lags the 14.8 percent increase the industry recorded during the first six months of 2012. While sales are still on track to top 14 million ve-

The drop in sales at GM and Ford were offset by strong performances at Toyota and Honda, which a year ago were struggling to overcome inventory shortages because of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Overall, the industry reported sales on Wednesday

hicles for the entire year, analysts said growth appeared to be slowing somewhat. “The good news is that demand is stable and it is not fueled by incentives and discounts,” said Jesse Toprak, chief market analyst for the auto research website

“On the other hand, we’re not seeing that blockbuster month.” Most automakers said that truck sales slipped during July and car sales increased. Executives noted that consumers continued to be heavily influenced by the fuel economy of vehicles.

By Brad Plumer The Washington Post





The biggest U.S. drought in half a century is devastating farms across the Midwest. Crops are wilting. Food prices are on the rise. Under the circumstances, then, does it still make sense for the government to divert a hefty portion of the nation’s corn output into making fuel? Some groups are starting to ask exactly that question. This week, a coalition of U.S. meat and poultry producers called on the Environmental Protection Agency to relax its corn-ethanol program for one year. The producers argued that the heavy use of corn for fuel is driving crop prices even higher at the worst possible moment. (The EPA denied a similar request from Texas Gov. Rick Perry in 2008.) “America’s pork producers are extremely worried, given the drought affecting much of the corn-growing regions, about having feed for their animals,” said Randy Spronk, president of the National Pork Producers Council, in a statement. It’s not hard to see why they’re worried: Under the EPA’s Renewable Fuel Standard, U.S. refineries are required to blend their gasoline with a certain percentage of biofuel each year. The rule has helped the United States reduce its dependence on oil. But it also requires a lot of corn. In 2012, the standard will require 13.2 billion gallons of ethanol, which could consume as much as 40 percent of this year’s already shrunken corn crop. Meat and poultry producers get hit especially hard when the price of corn and animal feed rises. Many livestock producers have to respond by culling their herds to stem losses. In the short term, that leads to a drop in meat prices, which squeezes the industry further. Yet corn growers and ethanol producers say it’s too soon to panic. “With the crop still in the field, it is too early to determine this year’s final corn supply,” said Garry Niemeyer, president of the National Corn Growers Association, replying to the petition. What’s more, Niemeyer noted, the ethanol industry has a surplus of fuel right now, which can help offset the impact of the drought. Under the EPA’s program, ethanol producers can carry over credits from year to year, giving them some flexibility to deal with shortages. By and large, corn farmers benefit from the ethanol mandate during droughts, says Michael Roberts, an agricultural economist at North Carolina State University. Because the demand for corn stays so inelastic, the price tends to rise high enough that it offsets the losses farmers suffer from reduced crop yields. “It’s ironic but corn farmers are actually going to benefit from the drought,” Roberts says. The real pain, by contrast, could be borne by the rest of the world. The United States is one of the world’s biggest suppliers of corn, accounting for some 60 percent of global exports. A recent modeling study by the New England Complex Systems Institute found that the ethanol mandate, coupled with the drought, could soon push global food prices up to levels last seen in 2008, when food riots erupted in countries from Egypt to Haiti. “Reducing the amount of corn that is being converted to ethanol may address the immediate crisis,” NECSI concluded. Other experts, however, aren’t convinced that the effects of relaxing the mandate would be quite so dramatic. A recent study by Bruce Babcock of Iowa State University found that completely waiving the renewable fuel standard for one year would reduce corn prices just 4.6 percent. That could provide a small boon to the U.S. livestock industry — providing a benefit of about $1 billion, by one estimate — but it’s unclear whether it would be enough stem a possible food crisis overseas.

TRAIL UPDATE Snow, blowdown block high trails As midsummer is upon us, the lowerelevation trails are becoming dusty and dry, while the highestelevation trails are still melting out, said Chris Sabo, U.S. Forest Service trails specialist. Expect peak-season use on all but the highest trails. The Green, Moraine and Todd lakes trails, South Sister and Broken Top trails and the Three Sisters loop trail are still not recommended due to snow and fallen trees. There is a clear section on the Green Lake Trail from Scott Pass to Park Meadow. Trail users should wait until the other trails have melted out before attempting them and be sure to go prepared with proper hiking footwear and survival essentials. Road 370 into Broken Top is not expected to open for a couple of more weeks, in what Sabo called “an unusually late melt-off” year for the high country. In the Mount Jefferson Wilderness area, the Jefferson Lake, Sugarpine Ridge, Brush Creek and Mento Lake trails are blocked by overgrown brush and a high number of fallen trees due to fire impacts, and should be considered impassable and inadvisable for any level of recreationist. The trails are not currently being maintained by the Forest Service, Sabo said, and should be considered equally difficult for search and rescue crews. Rock Pile Lake Trail, which connects with the Pacific Crest Trail in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness, has about 140 trees down on a fivemile section of the trail. “Experienced hikers, ready for the challenge, could try to make it. Not a hike for a beginner hiker or backpacker … or stock users (such as those using a horse),” Sabo said.

e love national parks. So it was only a matter of time after we moved to Bend last winter that my wife, Meryl Ibis, and I would try to visit Crater Lake National Park, which is located about 90 miles southwest of Bend. But we just kept running into one problem: snow. “We get a lot of snow,” said Marsha McCabe, a ranger at Crater Lake National Park. “It takes a lot of time for us to get that moved.”

The snow Formed when the 12,000-foot-high Mount Mazama collapsed after erupting 7,700 years ago, Crater Lake is a crystal-blue gem about six miles wide with a maximum depth of 1,943 feet, which makes it the deepest lake in the United States. The lake’s rock rim towers between 500 to 1,978 feet and can be traversed on the 33-mile loop road known as East Rim Drive and West Rim Drive. What I found most interesting about the lake is that most of its water, an estimated 5 trillion gallons, comes from snow. Because of its elevation and location in the Cascade Mountain Range, the park gets on average of 522 inches of snow a year. This much snowfall makes visiting the park during any time ex-

cept midsummer quite a challenge. Up until July 17 — two days after the Bend Summer Festival and more than three weeks after the summer solstice marked the season’s official start — it was impossible to drive the entire loop around Crater Lake without encountering a snowbank or a snowplow. See Outing / B6 Even in July, patches of snow can be found at Crater Lake National Park. At right, the peak of Mount Thielsen can be seen.

A  & A  

Brother can’t handle truth a paternity test may reveal Dear Abby: My younger brother confided that he got a girl pregnant. I’m the only one he has told and it’s killing me. The baby is about two months old, and my folks still don’t know they could possibly be grandparents. My brother doesn’t want to tell them right now, and he also doesn’t want a paternity test to see if the baby is his because he doesn’t want to face the reality that he could really be a father. Abby, knowing that I could have a niece out there is killing me because there are so many children who harbor resentment toward their absentee fathers. I really want to do the right thing and get my parents involved, but if I do I’ll lose my brother’s trust. If I don’t tell, I will have to live with the fact that I am abetting my brother being another stereotypical dead-beat dad. Please help. — Aunt in Disguise Dear Aunt in Disguise: How old is your brother? From your description, he is acting like a 14-year-old. Have another talk with him and tell him that because he is old enough to father a child, he’s also old enough to accept responsibility for his actions. The time to tell his parents everything and start supporting his child in every way he can is now. Of course, before making any announcements, he should be sure the baby is actually his. A paternity test will let him off the hook if he isn’t the father. So give him a deadline to have the test done, and if it shows he is the baby daddy, set another one for him to inform your parents or you will. The longer the delay, the harder it will be. Dear Abby: I recently discovered that my mother has been purchasing catalog items using my name and not paying for

DEAR A B B Y them. I have confronted her, but she denies it even though the items are in her home. My mother is much better off financially than I am and has no need to use my credit. I have spoken to the companies and had mixed results. Some have agreed to put the bill in her name, others refused. At this point, I don’t know what to do. Any advice would be appreciated. — Joanna in Brooklyn, N.Y. Dear Joanna: Your mother’s behavior is shameful. Talk to your credit card companies and ask for new credit cards. If this is allowed to continue, your mother will destroy your credit. Tell her that you expect her to pay the charges she has incurred immediately, and you want proof of payment. Warn her that if it doesn’t happen, you will inform the fraud division of your local police and let them deal with her. Then follow through. Dear Abby: I’m 13 and have a problem. My friends are jealous of me. They say I’m spoiled rotten. I honestly don’t think I am that spoiled, and I love my friends dearly. I am bothered by their rude comments. How do I ask them to stop or should I just ignore it? — Unspoiled in Indiana Dear Unspoiled: The next time they say it, say: “It hurts my feelings when you say that. A spoiled person is someone who doesn’t appreciate what she has — and I appreciate everything I have. Especially friends like you.� — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar Optimism can make the impossible happen this year, especially with you. You will network and expand your horizons in the next 12 months. You also will manifest a long-term dream, which will delight many people. If you are single, you attract many potential suitors. The issue is deciding which one to choose. Are you even ready to settle down? Regardless, you have a great time as you try to figure out your love life. If you are attached, the two of you seem to manifest happiness wherever you go. You learn to talk through the less-than-easy feelings. Closeness happens naturally. AQUARIUS is loyal like you are. 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 Meetings prove to be very important. You might not be sure which way you would like to go until you hear all the different perspectives. A partner or friend pushes very hard to get what he or she wants. Detach and make a firm decision. Tonight: Think “weekend.� TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You showcase your skills in organization and management. With your high energy and determination, you are able to materialize what you want. Make sure to spend more time with a family member who wants your attention. Tonight: Could go till the wee hours. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Reach out for different perspectives. You seem to understand exactly what is needed, but it is important to be open to the best path. A child could be rather rowdy. A loved one also might act in a childish manner. Tonight: Let your imagination come into play. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Listen to someone’s ideas before lashing out at him or her. You might be vested in having your way much more than you think. Take a walk or do something else to help you relax. A healthy oneon-one conversation can clear up a misunderstanding. Tonight: Visit over dinner. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might think you have a sign on your door that says “Visit Me.� Fortunately, you are a gregarious person who likes people. Try not to be gruff as you establish limits. You could come off a lot harsher than you intend. Tonight: Certainly no lack of people, ideas or plans.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Your attention to detail is in high demand. Someone makes it clear that he or she needs your abilities. Listen to what’s being shared by a superior, parent or older friend. This person has experience on his or her side. Honor what seems like a good idea. Tonight: Do not go to extremes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH The natural twists and turns of your life’s path will land you in the right place. Just follow your intuition and do not overthink. Your high energy attracts a key person. This person likes what you are about. Tonight: Consider starting the weekend early. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH With so much going on lately, you could feel overwhelmed and tend to be a bit sarcastic. A partner, associate or friend pitches in and makes the day easier. It is this person’s pleasure, so you do not need to make a big deal about it. Tonight: Get some extra downtime. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Suddenly, everyone needs to get things off his or her chest. This will keep you busy, so be sure to schedule time for some and just respond to others. A friendship has been, and will continue to be, too demanding. You experience others’ issues firsthand. Tonight: Join a friend for munchies. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You put in that extra effort without hesitation. When provoked, your energy becomes much higher and focused. Do not be at the mercy of others. Choose how you want to handle a financial matter, then follow through. Tonight: Double-check your budget. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You will have the ability to move an important relationship or situation forward right now. Do not hesitate; overthinking could become a problem. Sometimes you just need to act. An observer might be taken aback by how quickly you can launch into action. Tonight: Whatever suits you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Know when to back off and do something else. You could be overtired, as is an associate or loved one. For now, recognize your need to center and take on nothing major. Dote on yourself for a change. Tonight: Get some extra Z’s.

Outing Continued from B1 Even today, most visitors can’t make it up one of the national park’s most popular hikes, the Garfield Peak Trail, because there’s too much white stuff in the way. “That was a pretty normal opening,” McCabe said. “There’s still a couple patches of snow around in August.” Anyplace that’s high and cool enough to have snow in the middle of July is going to be high and cool enough to give Central Oregonians a reprieve from summertime heat.

The trip Meryl and I passed by Crater Lake’s north entrance in late May when we cut across the Umpqua National Forest on our way to Medford. The gate was up and there was still at least a foot and a half of snow on the road. McCabe said this was typical because the park’s crews don’t start clearing North Entrance Road and West Rim Drive — the two roads that allow visitors from the north into the park — until June. It is possible to get to Crater Lake via its southern entrance in the spring, but keep in mind the park doesn’t start digging out the area around Mazama Village, an area that has a campground, general store and gas station, until April. “Our visitation usually doubles overnight (once the north entrance is opened),” McCabe said, adding that the park usually sees about 455,000 visitors each year. July and August are its busiest months, she said, even though there’s still snow on the ground and you might not be able to do every hike. But the north entrance was an entirely different situation when we went there after the park fully opened in mid-July. The roads were clear, the high temperature was about 10 to 15 degrees cooler that it was back in Bend and there wasn’t

Trails Continued from B1 There are still some large snow patches across the Pacific Crest Trail at elevations above 6,200 feet and even “isolated pockets of patchy snow” down to 5,600 feet, Sabo said. The snow on the PCT is “currently not passable by stock and … may be treacherous for hikers,” Sabo said. Be cautious in areas of patchy snow where the melt-out could have formed hollow snow bridges that may collapse under the weight of a hiker. The PCT around Mesa Creek is reported to have substantial sections of snow, Sabo said. Mirror Lake Trail is clear of fallen trees and snow, with some residual patchy snow around the lake. Koosah Mountain is mostly snowfree, but has a section of snow on the PCT on the north side, Sabo said, and some sectional snow and fallen trees south on the PCT. North of Irish and Taylor

If you go Getting there: From Bend, take U.S. Highway 97 to the East Diamond Lake Highway (state Route 138) and turn right. Head west for 15 miles and then turn left on Crater Lake Highway, which becomes the North Entrance Road and Rim Drive. Follow Rim Drive to Rim Village Visitor Center. Difficulty: Crater Lake National Park has several hikes, including the Garfield Peak Trail, which is considered a strenuous hike. The 33-mile road around Crater Lake’s shoreline can be toured by bicycle or car. There are also boat and trolley tours available. Cost: $10 fee per vehicle, paid at the park’s North Entrance Gate.

a cloud in the sky. There were, though, still some patches of snow, most of which were on the park’s north-facing slopes. We kept this in mind when we got to Rim Village, a guest services area on the lake’s southern shore, and asked a ranger at the visitors center to recommend a good hike with a nice view of the lake. He recommended Garfield Peak, a 1.7-mile hike that climbs a peak right outside the Crater Lake Lodge and the Rim Village. But he also said we’d only be able to do about threefourths of the climb because of snow.

The hike There are two things that made Crater Lake stand out: First, because its water is mostly snowmelt, it is clearer than any other lake I’ve seen; there are no tributar-

lakes, two trees have blocked the trail for stock use, Sabo said. Some trail clearing has gone on south to state Highway 58. Trail clearing on the PCT in the Diamond Peak Wilderness is in progress as well. Expect some snow, which may block stock use, above about 6,000 feet. Canyon Creek Meadow trail, popular for wildflowers, should be cleared by the weekend. North of there, the Wasco Lake Trail, which connects to the PCT, is reported to have substantial numbers of fallen trees, Sabo said. In the lower elevations, most of the Newberry Crater trails have been cleared of fallen trees. The Swamp Wells Trail on the north side has not yet been cleared and is blocked for mountain bikers and stock users. Work on the Obsidian Flow Trail has been completed. Considering the high levels of falling trees in beetle and fire kill areas this year, Sabo would like to remind recre-

ies to muddy the lake with sediment. Second, the waters of the lake are so deep and clear, according to the National Parks Service, that they absorb almost all of the red, yellow, orange and green hues of sunlight, which have the longest wavelengths, and reflect back only blue and purple colors of light that have short wavelengths and give its surface an unmistakable deep, deep blue color. You can see both of these phenomena in full effect from the Sinnott Memorial Overlook, a landmark between the visitor’s center and the Garfield Peak trailhead. You’ll also see them through many breaks in the fir trees while walking toward the 8,060-foothigh summit of Garfield Peak.

ationists on the trails that the trees are still falling — with or without noticeable wind — and he advises campers to choose their campsites carefully. “Generally camping in a green forest is going to be safer than camping in a dead forest. People have been killed in the middle of the night from a tree falling on their tent.” Throughout August, there will be youth crews maintaining and restoring the east and west Metolius River trails. Trail users should expect closures and reroutes during the work. There will also be heavy equipment working downstream of Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery, Sabo said. As you enjoy the trails, be sure to pick up your wilderness permits, Sabo said. Read the bulletin boards thoroughly. Practice “leave no trace” at all times while in the wilderness. Take other trail users into consideration and keep those dogs on the leash where required. — Lydia Hoffman, The Bulletin

Meryl and I stopped to check out the lake whenever we got a chance. But we were also blown away by the views we got from the rim’s southern edge, which gazed out on nearby mountains, dark green with pine and fir trees. The dirt trail up the mountain also had many deeply colored rocks and a multitude of wildflowers, which McCabe said start popping up out of the ground once the snow melts. The trail ends at an overlook at Garfield Peak’s summit, where you’re supposed to get a panoramic view of both sides of the rim. But Meryl and I had to cut our hike short before we

got to this point because of the snow blocking the trail. We ended up sitting down by the side of the trail to enjoy a view of the lake at an elevation of

not quite 8,060 feet. To be honest, it wasn’t so bad. — Reporter: 541-617-7816,

Two runs in the top of the first inning was all the scoring Cowlitz needed as the Black Bears took a 2-1 victory over Bend in West Coast League baseball action on Wednesday night at Vince Genna Stadium. Runners Matt Ozanne and Connor Armijo both scored unearned runs after a dropped third strike at home plate that gave the Black Bears their 2-0 lead. The Elks got on the board with a run in the bottom of the seventh inning when Will Sparks scored off a Shawn O’Brien double. Bend (21-25) had seven hits on the night, two each by Bo Walter and Will Sparks, including doubles by Walter, Sparks and O’Brien. Cowlitz (23-24) starter Cole Irvin got the victory on the mound after throwing seven innings. Bend starter Jordan Spencer took the loss after completing three innings with five strikeouts. The Elks return to the diamond tonight at 6:35 when they face Klamath Falls for a four-game set.

Armstrong wins time trial • Boise cyclist and CCC competitor defends her title for another gold medal By Dave Skretta The Associated Press

HAMPTON COURT, England — Kristin Armstrong knew she was the favorite to win time trial gold in cycling at the Beijing Olympics. But when she looked at the start list in London, she counted nine riders with a shot. In the end, there was only one. The defending champion blistered an 18-mile course south of London on Wednesday to win her second straight gold medal. Her time of 37 minutes, 34.82 seconds was more

than 15 seconds better than world champion Judith Arndt of Germany, who took silver. Olga Zabelinskaya of Russia won the bronze. “My mantra was, ‘You have to live with this ride,’ ” said Armstrong, who briefly retired after the 2008 Beijing Olympics to start a family. “You’re only as good as your last result.” It couldn’t have been any better. The former two-time world champion had already gained a second on the field by the first time check. See Armstrong / C6

Tate Metcalf congratulates Ashton Eaton after Eaton won the decathlon at the U.S. Olympic Trials and set a world record at Eugene’s Hayward Field in late June.

ate Metcalf figured the total cost of attending the London Olympics would be about $20,000. The prospect of making the trip was looking bleak for the assistant track coach at Bend’s Mountain View High School and longtime mentor of decathlon goldmedal favorite and world-record holder Ashton Eaton, who was raised in Central Oregon. But some friends came through in an MARK Olympic-sized way for Metcalf, 44, and MORICAL his wife, Aimee. Steve Hunt, one of the members of the Sisters Athletic Club, of which Metcalf is the owner, donated his airline miles, saving the Metcalfs about $4,000. Other donations from club members came pouring in, and suddenly the cost of the trip to London was cut in half. “A lot of people through the club really rallied,” Metcalf said last week. “We didn’t actively pursue it. But enough people are so enthusiastic about Ashton, and can follow him and support him through me. That’s why I said I’m willing to go. It’s not ‘Let’s just send Tate to London.’ It’s ‘Let’s support Ashton via Tate.’ And over $6,000 was raised — which blows my mind.” See Follower / C7

lashers and dodgers, ultraviolet jigs, hoochies, wedding rings and purple scorn ... I mean, corn. It sounds like just another night in Las Vegas, but it’s not. It’s kokanee fishing in the high Cascades. On shore, at Shelter Cove Resort, lights began to flicker outside darkened RVs as fishermen sipped their coffee and strung GARY their rods. Already, LEWIS trolling motors hummed in the stillness of the dawn. In all of fishing, there is no one else like the kokanee angler. These guys help each other, they offer advice on YouTube and online forums and they might even rig your gear for you. Because every angler on the lake knows what it is like to get skunked, even when there are hundreds of fish below the boat. In the middle of a full moon cycle, I didn’t hold any illusions about catching my limit. Down to the end of the dock in the dark, where a boat waited for me, I told myself I’d be happy to land a couple of fish for dinner. See Odell / C8

Police said five men jumped Ball around 2:15 a.m. near campus They knocked him down and kicked him. Ball, a finalist for the Hesiman Trophy last season, was taken to a hospital with head injuries. Coach Bret Bielema said Ball has been released and is under the care of the school’s sports medicine staff. Bielema says he expects Ball will make a full recovery, but did not address Ball’s availability. The season opens Sept. 1 against Northern Iowa.

Motor sports • Penske dumps Allmendinger after drug test: Penske Racing has released suspended driver A.J. Allmendinger, three weeks after he tested positive for a banned stimulant. The team made the announcement Wednesday and said Sam Hornish Jr. will drive the No. 22 Dodge at Pocono this weekend and “for the foreseeable future.” Allmendinger was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR last week for a positive drug test in late June. Team owner Roger Penske said the decision to part with a “terrific driver” like Allmendinger was unfortunate but would have been handled the same way for any other member of the team. Allmendinger released a statement apologizing for the distractions and thanking Penske. He has pledged to complete NASCAR’s rehabilitation program.

Basketball • Grizzlies’ Randolph helping rescued pit bull: Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph is offering to pay for the rehabilitation and adoption of a male pit bull that was rescued from a drain pipe. Randolph offered to help after hearing the story of the pit bull, which was rescued after getting stuck 15 feet down the pipe in mid-July in Memphis, the Grizzlies said in a news release Tuesday. The dog was found by a woman and her daughter, who heard the dog crying. The dog had been trapped in the pipe for two days. Animal welfare advocates said he would not have survived many more hours of entrapment. — From staff and wire reports

Tigers season so far? Not great. Not bad. Not expected By Tyler Kepner New York Times News Service

BOSTON — It could have been any game playing behind the smoky Marlboro haze on the television in Jim Leyland’s office Wednesday afternoon. If you have given your life to baseball, as Leyland has, you will watch any game, at any time, with at least some curiosity. Yet it seemed mildly interesting that the game Leyland watched involved the team his Detroit Tigers are chasing in the American League Central. Heavy favorites to win the division easily, the Tigers have spent only three days alone in first place since April 22. The Chicago White Sox are the leaders. As Chicago closed out a victory in Minnesota on Wednesday, ensuring that the Tigers could gain no ground in the standings, Leyland betrayed no emotion. At 67, he seems to understand that there is little value in outwardly showing frustration. It has probably served him well this season. The Tigers started 9-3 through May 1, then went 30-39 to tumble into third

place. Starting July 4, they won 13 of 15, including a three-game sweep of the White Sox, to take over first place. But they had lost six of eight on this trip before their final game with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park Wednesday night. Yes, Leyland said, it has felt as up and down as it looks from a distance. “Yes, I would say so,” he said. “I would say that’s accurate — surprisingly so. I thought we’d be more consistent, less streaky, to be honest with you. We haven’t played good enough. Pretty simple.” The Tigers’ stars have performed well enough. Justin Verlander is 11-7, after going 24-5 last year, but he leads the majors in innings (160 2/3), has a 2.63 earned run average and has held opponents to a .201 average. Miguel Cabrera, as usual, ranks among the leaders in on-base and slugging percentage. Prince Fielder has only 16 homers, but he has knocked in 72 runs while reaching base at his usual rate. Others have played well, like outfielders Austin Jackson and Quintin Berry and reliever Brayan Villarreal.

But none of those efforts have made the Tigers’ offense or pitching stand out. Coming into Wednesday’s game, they ranked seventh in the league in runs scored and seventh in earned run average. Their progress around the All-Star break has, again, drifted back toward mediocrity. “Before this road trip, we had a nice homestand and we were clicking,” catcher Alex Avila said. “The road trip comes and we haven’t pitched very well — we had a few good starts, but for the most part we’ve been struggling there — and we haven’t done much offensively. You’re not going to win when you’re not doing either of those. That’s just the way the game is.” Last season, the Tigers ended July with a two-and-a-half-game lead; this season, they trailed by that margin. But their record was not much different: 57-51 last year, 54-50 this year. Those Tigers played to a .704 winning percentage the rest of the way, at 38-16, then beat the Yankees in the division series. They lost to Texas in a six-game A.L. Championship Series,

then added Fielder as a free agent. The equation across baseball was fairly straightforward: 95 victories in 2011, plus Fielder, would equal a runaway in the division for the Tigers. But that prediction ignored a few variables. “We lost Victor Martinez,” Avila said. “I mean, you take out Victor and you put in Prince, it’s a wash.” Martinez, a four-time All-Star who drove in 103 runs last season, had microfracture surgery on his left knee in January and will miss the season. The Tigers reacted boldly to the injury with their $214 million investment in Fielder, but losing Martinez blunted his impact on the rest of the lineup. The 2011 Tigers also had some performances that were probably unsustainable. Before this season, Verlander correctly predicted that he could pitch just as well, or better, but have a worse won-loss record because of luck. Doug Fister, who was 8-1 with a 1.79 earned run average for the Tigers after a trade from Seattle last July, has been less reliable this sea-

son. Same for closer Jose Valverde, who converted all 49 save chances last season, but is 20 for 24 in 2012. The Tigers traded last week for starter Anibal Sanchez and second baseman Omar Infante, formerly of the Miami Marlins, but the White Sox have also made moves, acquiring third baseman Kevin Youkilis, reliever Brett Myers and starter Francisco Liriano. Chicago, it seems, was vastly underrated. “Nobody gave us a shot last year, and everybody picked the White Sox to win it — that’s baseball,” said Detroit’s Don Kelly, a playoff star against the Yankees last October. “Nobody gave us a shot last year in Game 5 against the Yankees, either. You have to go out there and play and compete. That’s the beauty of the game.” Leyland might not call it beautiful, the way his team has underachieved. But he knows there is time to recover. “We have a good enough team to win,” Leyland said, his eyes never leaving the White Sox game. “Will we win? I don’t know. We have two months to figure that out.”

Japan’s Uchimura takes gold in all-around The Associated Press LONDON — Kohei Uchimura wanted to lead Japan to the gold medal in men’s gymnastics, but he struggled in the final and settled for silver. It was a much different story in the all-around competition. Uchimura added Olympic gold to the world titles he’s won the past three years, and it was never much of a contest. Midway through the meet, the only question was how big his victory would be and who would be standing next to him on the medals podium. Uchimura’s score of 92.690 was more than 1.5 points ahead of silver medalist Marcel Nguyen of Germany. American Danell Leyva got the bronze. “I have been a world champion three times, three years in a row. But this is different,” Uchimura said. “It’s once in four years, and the wait was there. I felt like the demon was chasing me this time.” Host Britain picked up its first two gold medals of the games when Helen Glover and Heather Stanning won the final of the women’s pair at the rowing regatta and cyclist Bradley Wiggins took the time trial, delighting the crowd at Hampton Court Palace on the banks of the River Thames. A day after swimmer Michael Phelps won a record 19th medal, the debate hung over the pool and around Olympic Park. Greatest Olympian ever? “He’s won more medals that any Olympian in history,” American teammate Tyler Clary said. “That should speak for itself.” Phelps put himself in position to add to that total when he advanced Wednesday night to the 200-meter individual medley final. Fellow American Rebecca Soni moved on in the 200 breaststroke, setting a world record in the semis. Nathan Adrian (100 freestyle), Daniel Gyurta (200 breaststroke) and China’s Jiao Liuyang (women’s 200 butterfly) each won a gold medal, and the United States finished first in the women’s 4x200 freestyle relay. Adrian of the U.S. closed fast and clocked 47.52 seconds to finish 0.01 ahead of world champion James “The Missile” Magnussen of Australia. Hungary’s Gyurta set a world record when he clocked 2:07.28 in the final. Venus Williams was eliminated in the singles competition at Wimbledon, losing 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) to No. 7-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany. Seeking a record fourth gold medal in Olympic tennis, Williams still has a shot with sister Serena in doubles. Venus was diagnosed last year with an autoimmune disease that causes fatigue, and she looked weary against Kerber. She wasted a lead in each set. “I made a few errors and she hit a few winners, and things can go quickly in tennis,” Williams said. Serena moved on, routing

U.S. men’s basketball set for familiar Nigerian team LONDON — The Americans are big and bad as advertised, romping through their first two games at the London Olympics by an average of 37 points, even without playing their best basketball. But is that reason to be afraid of them? Hardly, says Nigeria, their next opponent today. “We will not be intimidated by those guys,” Ike Diogu, a former top-10 NBA draft pick who has played 225 NBA games, said after Nigeria’s 72-53 loss to Lithuania. “A lot of us went to school in the U.S. and have played against those guys. We have no reason to feel overwhelmed.” Nigeria guard Tony Skinn agrees. “I mean, listen, man, I’ve been playing ball for a long time,” said Skinn, who was part of George Mason’s improbable Final Four run in 2006. “At some point in time, I played against those guys or seen those guys play. A lot of us, obviously we’re Nigerians, but we play in the States and I don’t think we have that mentality to just come in the game and just, you know, get our (butts) whooped.” Skinn and the Patriots beat Michigan State, North Carolina and Connecticut — all perennial powers who had been recent national champions. He wasn’t afraid of those teams and he shows no fear of LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, or any other U.S. player, either. “That’s not what we’re here for,” he said. “We’re here to compete. We’re competitors, and I think that everybody on the team has that approach.” The Americans, who did not practice Wednesday, are approaching the Nigeria game as the step in their quest for a second-straight gold medal. — The Associated Press

No. 13 seed Vera Zvonareva 6-1, 6-0. Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka and Kim Clijsters also advanced. On the men’s side, Britain’s Andy Murray outlasted Marcos Baghdatis 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. Novak Djokovic beat Lleyton Hewitt in three sets, and Roger Federer, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Juan Martin del Potro also won. The rest of the Olympic action Wednesday: B A SK ETB A LL Angel McCoughtry scored 18 points, Tina Charles had 16 and the U.S. women beat Turkey 89-58 in a matchup of unbeaten teams. Turkey stayed close for a while. It had an early one-point lead in the first quarter before McCoughtry helped the Americans build a 15-point advantage by

the half. The Americans close out pool play Sunday against China, which is also 3-0 after routing Angola 76-52. Also, France edged Canada 64-60 to advance to the next round; Russia remained unbeaten with a 67-61 win over Britain; and Australia rebounded from its first loss to a non-American team in the Olympics since 1996 with a 67-61 victory over Brazil. B EA C H VOLLLEYB A LL Two-time defending Olympic gold medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor picked up another win. But another one of their impressive streaks is over. The Americans lost the first set of their match against Austria 21-17, the first lost set in three Olympics. But they came back to win the second set 21-8 and

took the third 15-10 to remain unbeaten in this — and every other — trip to the Olympics. On the men’s side, Americans Jake Gibb and Sean Rosenthal beat Latvia to bounce back from their only loss of the tournament and advance. B OXIN G Three American fighters lost to a Cuban world champion and two Russian heavyweight, depleting the U.S. ranks to four remaining men. Top-seeded bantamweight Lazaro Alvarez of Cuba beat Joseph Diaz Jr. 21-15, and U.S. heavyweight Michael Hunter tired badly in the third round of a narrow loss to Artur Beterbiev before super heavyweight Dominic Breazeale dropped a 19-8 decision to Magomed Omarov. Iran’s Ali Mazaheri left the ring without shaking hands and later cried conspiracy after a German referee disqualified him from his bout with Cuba’s Jose Larduet, apparently for an accumulation of holding fouls. Japan’s Satoshi Shimizu then filed a protest after he lost a 22-17 decision to second-seeded Magomed Abdulhamidov despite sending him to the canvas six times in the third round in what appeared to be an exhausted fighter’s attempt to maintain a narrow lead. Amateur boxing’s governing body overturned the result late Wednesday night, allowing Shimizu to advance. VOLLEYB A LL Destinee Hooker scored 22 points and the U.S. women’s team improved to 3-0 with a three-set preliminary round victory over China. Megan Hodge added 18 points for the top-ranked U.S. in the 26-24, 25-16, 31-29 win. Zeng Chunlei scored 10 points, including two aces, for No. 3 China, which fell to 2-1 in the preliminary round. Surprising South Korea improved to 2-1 with a 25-23, 25-21, 25-21 upset against Brazil. Carolina del Pilar Costagrande had 12 points and Italy improved to

3-0 with a straight-set victory over Britain. Japan, Russia and Turkey also won in three sets. FEN C IN G Two-time Olympic sabre champion Mariel Zagunis, who carried the American flag at the opening ceremony, lost her last two matches and failed to make the podium. Kim Jiyeon of South Korea won the gold, beating Russia’s Sofya Velikaya in the final. Olga Kharlan of Ukraine got the bronze. Seth Kelsey of the U.S. also dropped his last two matches in men’s individual epee, leaving him without a medal as well. Venezuela’s Ruben Limardo, Norway’s Bartosz Piasecki and Jung Jinsun of South Korea took the top three spots. SOC C ER Britain beat Uruguay 1-0 in its final group game to join fellow medal contenders Brazil and Mexico in the quarterfinals. Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge scored the winner just before halftime in front of 70,000 fans. The team, which won Group A, is the country’s first in the Olympics since 1960. Oribe Peralta scored a second-half goal as Mexico topped Switzerland 1-0, and Honduras continued its surprise run by drawing 0-0 with Group D winner Japan to take a place in the last eight. Egypt, Senegal and South Korea also reached the quarters. SA ILIN G Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen, the 49er favorites coming into London, extended their lead to 13 points over rivals Peter Burling and Blair Tuke of New Zealand. France’s Emmanuel Dyen and Stephane Christidis won the first race to jump into third place, where they remained after finishing 10th in the day’s second race. In the women’s Laser Radial, Ireland’s Annalise Murphy had finishes of 8th and 19th after winning the first four races. The 19th-place finish will be her discard, and she leads the

fleet with 12 points. D IVIN G China completed a sweep of the synchronized diving events, winning the men’s 3meter springboard to move halfway toward taking each of the diving gold medals. Qin Kai and partner Luo Yutong led all six rounds of the final, totaling 477.00 points. Ilya Zakharov and Evgeny Kuznetsov of Russia took the silver at 459.63. Kristian Ipsen and Troy Dumais of the U.S. earned the bronze at 446.70. It was the first medal of Dumais’ long career in his fourth Olympics, equaling Greg Louganis for most appearances by a male U.S. diver. WA TER POLO Maica Garcia scored twice in the last two minutes as Spain rallied for a 9-9 draw with the United States in the women’s tournament. Rowie Webster scored five goals in Australia’s easy 16-3 win over Britain. Hungary beat China 11-10, and Russia edged Italy 7-4. The U.S. plays China on Friday. R OWIN G Germany lived up to its billing as the favorite for the men’s eight, producing a late burst to get the win at Dorney Lake. Canada captured silver, falling short in its bid to defend its gold medal from Beijing. Britain settled for bronze. Ukraine won its first Olympic rowing gold medal in women’s quadruple sculls. The Germans took silver and the U.S. was third. H A N D B A LL Andrea Penezic scored 10 goals to help Croatia beat Russia 30-28, leaving Brazil as the only team with three wins in three games. Ana Paula Rodrigues scored seven goals to power Brazil past Britain 3017. Spain, France and Montenegro also won, and Norway and South Korea tied at 27. FIELD H OC K EY Australia overwhelmed Spain 5-0 in the men’s tournament, turning what was expected to be a close match into a rout. Defending champion Germany beat South Korea 1-0 to move into second position in Group B, behind medal hopeful the Netherlands. Mink van der Weerden scored twice to lead the Dutch past Belgium 3-1 for their second win of the tournament. New Zealand and Pakistan also won. Britain and South Africa played to a 2-2 tie. TA B LE TEN N IS China’s first table tennis gold of the games went to Li Xiaoxia, who upset teammate Ding Ning. Li raced to the stands to get a Chinese flag and waved it around for a few moments, but her celebration was mostly subdued. Usually upbeat and open, Ding cried afterward and suggested Italian referee Paola Bongelli may have cost her a gold medal. Feng Tianwei of Singapore defeated Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan for bronze. Feng was born in China and was recruited to play in Singapore when it became clear she would not make China’s team.

8 disqualified at London Games for trying to lose By Rob Harris The Associated Press

LONDON — Eight badminton players at the London Olympics were kicked out of competition Wednesday for trying to lose — a display that drew outrage from fans and organizers who said the women had violated the most sacred stage in sports. It appeared to be the first mass disqualification in Olympic history. After an unexpected loss by a powerful Chinese doubles team, the eight women appeared to play poorly on purpose to secure a more favorable position in the next phase of the event. The feeble play was obvious to fans who attended the matches Tuesday night at Wembley Arena — they chanted, “Off! Off! Off!” — and to incredulous television broadcasters and viewers watching around the world. “They’re serving fault and fault! They are just hitting the ball into the net!” the BBC’s David Mercer said in disbelief. “They are both trying to lose, and that is unforgivable. This is the Olympic Games.” The eight players included four from South Korea, two from China and two from Indonesia. They were disqualified from competition but allowed to stay at the games — a step lighter than expulsion, the penalty for positive drug tests. None of the players was made available for interviews. But after the match one of them, Yu Yang of China, said they were only trying to save energy for the knockout rounds, starting Wednesday. Besides dumping serves into the net, both teams made simple errors. The longest rally was only four strokes. The scandal was the talk of the sixth day of the Olympics, overshadowing a long-awaited first gold medal for the home country, secured at last by a pair of British rowers at Windsor. Though the most serious to date, it’s hardly been the only black eye. On Monday, a South Korean fencer wept openly while judges took an hour to consider a disputed point, and on Tuesday, doping suspicions engulfed a teenage Chinese goldmedal swimmer. For the most part, the blunders have been much smaller — unsightly empty seats on television, lost keys to Wembley Stadium, the South Korean flag flown instead of the North Korean at a soccer match. Sebastian Coe, chairman of the London organizing committee, said the badminton scandal was “depressing.” “Who wants to sit through something like that?” he said. Condemnation came quickly from some of the other 10,500 athletes, even from those who said they understood the strategy behind the decision to try to lose. Serena Williams, who blistered a Russian

opponent at Wimbledon on Wednesday to reach the Olympic quarterfinals, said she understood trying to throw points in practice, “but never, never, never in competition.” “This is definitely not within the Olympic spirit,” said Lin Dan of China, the defending Olympic men’s singles badminton champion. A player on the Indonesian men’s badminton team, Taufik Hidayat, called it a “circus match.” “I’m happy. I know I’m from Indonesia and the ladies’ doubles are from Indonesia, but it’s for the sport,” he said. “It’s not sporting.” For the badminton players, the moral question was somewhat more complex. Badminton was introduced at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, but this is the first time it has included a round-robin format before win-or-go-home tournament play. The chain of manipulation was set in motion when a team from Denmark unexpectedly beat the second-seeded team in the tournament, from China. By all accounts, that match was decided fairly. The loss put the Chinese team on course to face their compatriots, world doubles champions Wang Xiaoli and Yu, in the semifinals, not the finals, as expected. Wang and Yu then set out to lose so they would go into the bottom half of the draw. They hardly exerted themselves — and neither did their opponents, the South Koreans, drawing jeers from the crowd and warnings from the umpire. Wang and Yu ultimately proved better at losing. Later, the other South Korean team tried to lose, this time to the Indonesians, to avoid meeting Wang and Yu in the quarterfinals. The Indonesians apparently had the same idea. Early in that match, all four players were warned by the umpire for not trying hard, and the umpire later produced black cards to disqualify both pairs, but the cards were rescinded on a promise of better play. The Indonesians ultimately succeeded at losing, and the South Koreans fell into the playoff they did not want with the world champions. By midday Wednesday, the Badminton World Federation, the governing body of the sport, had disqualified all eight players from competing at the games. The federation rejected an appeal from South Korea. Indonesia withdrew an appeal. The eight are Wang and Yu of China; the four South Koreans, Jung Kyun-eun, Kim Ha-na, Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung; and Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii of Indonesia. They were punished by the federation for “not using one’s best efforts to win a match” and “conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport.”

LONDON — A giddy Gabby Douglas offered a stream of words at her mile-a-minute best. “A lot of hard work, a lot of passion,” she said, “a lot of sacrifices and determination.” That’s how the tiny American teen described just what it took to win Olympic team gold in gymnastics. Now she’s aiming for more: another gold in the all-around competition today. Suddenly it’s her shot on the biggest stage. U.S. teammate Jordyn Wieber, the one-time favorite and defending world champion, missed out with a mistake-filled performance in qualifying. Douglas and another American, Aly Raisman, will try to hold off Russia’s Viktoria Komova and keep the remarkable run going for USA Gymnastics. “Man, I feel amazing right now,” Douglas said. “It just feels amazing to be the 2012 Olympic champion.” Shortly after Tuesday’s victory gave the Americans their first team gold since the “Magnificent Seven” of the 1996 Atlanta Games, coaching icons Bela and Martha Karolyi stole a rare quiet moment alone. The couple stood separated by a metal barrier, eyes locked, holding each other’s arms. Whatever happens next in these Olympics, Bela told his wife, the U.S. had already won big — again, at last. Then he leaned over the gate to embrace Martha and give her a kiss. Both know there are plenty more Olympic medals to be had, and the Americans would love to head home with a heap of hardware. Winning as a team certainly has them on the right track. “It is very special. It gives us the momentum,” the 4-foot-11 Douglas said. “It keeps going, it keeps flowing. It gives us, definitely, a little bit of an edge thinking that we are truly the best in the world. It gives us that little bit of a push.” Douglas and Raisman have a busy schedule ahead in the individual finals, too — Douglas on balance beam and uneven bars, Raisman on beam and floor exercise. “It definitely gives you a little bit of confidence,” vault finalist McKayla Maroney said, referring to the Americans’ mindset as they prepare for the rest of the Olympic schedule. “Now we are Olympic champions. It’s awesome.” In other Olympic action today, it’s Michael Phelps-Ryan Lochte Take II in the pool in the 200-meter individual medley final. Phelps won his record-setting 19th career Olympic medal and 15th gold in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay Tuesday night, and hopes to add to that total. Lochte is the world record holder in the 200 IM. Meanwhile, 17-year-old Missy Franklin goes for her second individual gold and third overall of the London Games. She won the 100-meter backstroke Monday night, earning her Twitter props from Justin Bieber. She was part of the winning 4x200 freestyle relay Wednesday night. At Horse Guards Parade, defending gold medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser of the U.S. wrap up men’s beach volleyball pool play against the Czech Republic. In rowing, the reigning Olympic champion American eight is the overwhelming favorite to take the gold and keep alive its streak of winning every world and Olympic title since 2006.

Armstrong Continued from C1 The advantage had swelled to five by the time she reached the 12½-mile mark. Armstrong knew she was headed for another gold when she started to pick off riders in the run-up to the finish, including Dutch champion Marianne Vos, who won gold in the road race. The famously stoic Armstrong, who competed in the Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend in late July, let a smile slip as she crossed the finish line, slowing to a stop and then slumping over her bike. She rested just enough to catch her breath before heading to the victory stand and her second consecutive Olympic gold. “When she stopped, she was on top. You don’t lose what you’ve got,” said Armstrong’s teammate Amber Neben, who finished seventh. “You don’t lose the fact that you’re a great bike racer.” Tour de France champion Bradley Wiggins gave the thousands of fans packing the course reason to cheer when he triumphed in the men’s race. It was all gold for Armstrong, even if the path from Beijing wasn’t entirely smooth. Armstrong thought she was finished after winning the world championship in 2009, but got the itch to ride again after delivering a son, Lucas, in 2010. She got back on the bike and started to win races, only to break her collarbone during a crash in May. Armstrong admits that she rushed her recovery, getting back on the bike only a couple weeks later. But she also thinks the time off allowed her to refocus on the London Olympics. “This is an amazing moment,” she said. “A lot of people ask me what the differences were between this and Beijing. I would say this was a much more difficult journey.” The mostly flat course that Armstrong turned into her personal playground began at Hampton Court Palace, the 16th century court once favored by Henry VIII. The race meandered through the Surrey countryside, twice crossing the River Thames, before finishing back at the palace. Riders in position


to medal were ushered onto so-called hot seats — three gilded thrones — to wait out the rest of the riders. That’s where Zabelinskaya spent much of the afternoon. The bronze medalist in the road race, she was the 10th of 24 riders to leave the start tent, and posted a time more than two minutes better than the next-fastest had crossed the line. She looked almost sheepish sitting on her throne as riders finished. “I’m really happy to win this medal in such company,” she said later, “but I’m also a bit disappointed, because I know I could have gone a bit faster at the beginning.” Linda Villumsen of New Zealand turned heads when she crossed the first checkpoint only a second slower than Armstrong, and the world silver medalist was still second-fastest at the second check. She struggled over the final leg and finished fourth, less than two seconds off the podium. Canadian rider Clara Hughes, a former Olympic speedskater, was third at the opening time check before fading to fifth. Britain’s Emma Pooley was fourth early before struggling over the final 12 miles, finishing sixth to cheers from a huge home crowd. “Everybody there wanted me to win. That’s what’s exciting,” said Pooley, who won silver in Beijing. “The number of medals that are on the table, I really don’t give monkeys about. We gave our best. I would not be there if I didn’t want to try and win.” Arndt was considered the biggest challenge to Armstrong after her time trial victory at the world championships. The silver medalist at the 2004 Athens Games, she was fifth at the first time check but managed to pick up her pace over the final 12 miles to earn another silver. “You have to have a good day, and I had a good,” Arndt said. “I think I had a good race.” Just not as good as Armstrong. “I’m really happy about this silver medal,” Arndt said, before dropping her voice to almost a whisper. “Of course, my goal was to win gold, but if you asked me yesterday, I would have named Kristin the favorite to win.”

Wiggins cruises to gold By Samuel Petrequin The Associated Press

HAMPTON COURT, England — Cyclist Bradley Wiggins won the gold medal in the time trial at the London Games on Wednesday, sealing his place in British Olympic history. The Tour de France champion powered his way to victory on the 44-kilometer course south of London to win his seventh Olympic medal, taking over the British record he shared with rowing great Steve Redgrave. “It was gold or nothing, really,” Wiggins said. “That’s how I felt. What’s the point of all these medals if they’re not gold ones?” Wiggins covered the course in 50 minutes, 39.54 seconds, beating silver medalist Tony Martin of Germany by 42 seconds. Tour runner-up Christopher Froome of Britain won the bronze, capping off a phenomenal summer for British road cycling. Wiggins, who became the first British rider to win the Tour last month, won his fourth Olympic gold medal after winning three titles in Athens and Beijing — in individual and team pursuit. After breaking his collarbone during last year’s Tour, the Londoner came back stronger than ever and has been nearly unbeatable this season, especially in long time trials, where he is undefeated in 2012. “We couldn’t ask for much more,” Froome said. The 32-year-old Wiggins was second to last of the 37 riders to roll down the ramp but was already second at the first time check, after 7.3 kilometers, trailing Tony Martin by 5 seconds.

The Olympic Rings are reflected on Britain’s gold medalist Bradley Wiggins’ helmet as he competes on his way to win the men’s individual time trial cycling event at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Wednesday in London.

in Surrey, perfectly suited Wiggins, who carried his former pursuit specialist skills into his favorite discipline when he quit track cycling after the Beijing Games. “I’ve said all year, this is the plan, this is what we’ve been training to do,” Wiggins said. “I’ve heard the question all year, ‘Is it possible?’ I think I’ve answered all those questions the last six weeks.” Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara, the Beijing gold medalist, said Wiggins was simply “on another level.” Riding in the middle of a sea of

British fans dressed in red, blue and white — some of them even sporting Wiggins’ signature sideburns — Wiggins stayed cool and kept going as he gradually picked up the pace to post the best time at the second check point, at the 18.4-kilometer mark, 11 seconds ahead of Martin. Wiggins showed no sign of fatigue from Saturday’s road race and clocked the best time at the third intermediate before passing time trial specialist Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain. Sanchez, a four-time national champion in the time trial, had a problem with his bike chain on the starting ramp and had to change his bike after only 10 meters. Sanchez’s fortunes did not improve, and the Spaniard had to change his bike again after another mechanical problem. American Taylor Phinney overtook him a few kilometers later. Wiggins became the first rider to win the Tour and the Olympic time trial in the same year, extending his already impressive run this season at Hampton Court Palace, a former royal residence on the banks on the River Thames. A few minutes after Wiggins crossed the finish line there, Prime Minister David Cameron hailed the cyclist in a message posted to Twitter. Wiggins “is a true British hero. First the Tour (de France) and now Olympic Gold.” Earlier Wednesday, Kristin Armstrong of the United States won the women’s time trial, contested over a slightly shorter version of the same course. Judith Arndt of Germany won silver and Olga Zabelinskaya of Russia won her second bronze of the games.

Follower Continued from C1 The Metcalfs arrived in London on Wednesday. Tate plans to be in contact with Eaton, at least via text and email, throughout the Olympics. In an agreement with The Bulletin, Metcalf will be sending tweets from London with the Twitter handle @BBulletinSports. Look for Tate’s tweets throughout the Olympic Games, including during the decathlon competition, Aug. 8-9. “I’m incredibly humbled and thankful that these people have rallied, and somewhat talked me into it,” Metcalf said of his club members. “For years we were planning on it (attending the London Olympics), but we just couldn’t gain the traction to make it happen.” The Metcalfs are saving money by staying in a college dorm in London, but they will still spend about $10,000 of their own, Tate estimated. Tickets to the Olympic events are the biggest expense. Through USA Track & Field, Eaton was able to secure access to two tickets for the Metcalfs during each day of the Olympic decathlon, which Tate figures will cost about $1,000 per ticket. A ticket he bought for the second day of the heptathlon, in which Eaton’s fiancee, Brianne Theisen, will compete, was $900, according to Metcalf. “I told Ashton, ‘Hopefully by the time the next Olympics roll around, I’ll have this one paid off,’ ” Metcalf said with a smile. As far as Metcalf is concerned, it is money well spent. He also plans to attend some Olympic events that are free to spectators, including the men’s and women’s marathon and triathlon. This is not the first time that Metcalf has ventured a long distance to follow Eaton. He traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, in 2008, and to Fayetteville, Ark., in 2009 to watch Eaton win two of his three NCAA decathlon titles for the University of Oregon. Metcalf has somewhat of a vested interest in Eaton, who was raised by his single mother, Roz Eaton, in La Pine and Bend. During high school, Metcalf served as Ashton’s most dedicated advocate for getting him into college. He was the first one to see young Eaton’s potential as a decathlete. “The spark really hit about halfway through the track season his senior year,” Metcalf recalled. “That’s when it really hit me that he needs to do the decathlon.” Metcalf, like UO coaches later would be, was awed by Eaton’s ability to master a drill or make a necessary change almost immediately. “That was the thing that really blew my mind,” Metcalf said. “This is something so unique, so rare. He was getting things quicker than I’ve ever seen … speed and running drills. He just got it.” Eaton would win state titles for Mountain View in the 400 meters and the long jump as a senior in 2006. Metcalf pursued college coaches as if he were Eaton’s agent. “A lot of it was financial, getting him in school,” Metcalf recalled. Southern Cal, UCLA and Washington State said thanks, but no thanks. Oregon and Dan Steele, then the decathlon coach for the Ducks, saw what Metcalf saw. “Nobody else really believed the decathlon side of things … except for Dan Steele,” Metcalf said. Metcalf and Eaton remained close throughout Eaton’s incredible career at UO. In many ways, Eaton is the son that Metcalf never had. (Tate and Aimee have no children.) Metcalf remains a father figure to the 24-year-old Eaton, who is planning to marry Theisen next summer. “Ashton is somebody … I’d do anything for that kid,” Metcalf said in 2008, just before Eaton’s first Olympic trials. “I definitely look at him … he’s the closest thing to family as we have.” So the trip to London really is a no-brainer. But now Metcalf — who grew up in rural South Dakota as a football and track athlete before going on to run middle distances for the University of Northern Colorado — must quell his distaste for crowds and big cities. “I’m going to have to fully embrace it, and change my ways,” said Metcalf, who lives between Bend and Sisters. “But I’m at the freakin’ Olympics! For me, being a sports guy and a coach, to go to the pinnacle of sports? Oh my God. I mean, how cool is that going to be?” Cool for all of us, as we follow Ashton via Tate. — Reporter: 541-383-0318,



Johnson intent on recapturing Pro Bowl form with Dolphins The Associated Press DAVIE, Fla. — Chad Johnson understands many were writing him off after his forgettable 2011 season with the New England Patriots. He even acknowledged questioning himself. But less than a week into training camp with the Miami Dolphins, Johnson said he has no doubt he can recapture the form that made him a sixtime Pro Bowl wide receiver with the Cincinnati Bengals. “Why? Because I’m good,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I’m really good. The odds have been stacked against me since 1978. I had a bad year. Finally. I handled my business for a decade straight. I hit an obstacle. I didn’t complain. I didn’t become a distraction. I took a bullet, worked this offseason, I’m here, still working. I’m not complaining. I’ll be back to normal. I don’t have a choice.” Johnson, signed by the Dolphins in June four days after he was released by New England, spoke to reporters for the first time since the start of training camp. But Johnson, with painted black fingernails minus the gold shoes he had worn at practice, made it worth the wait. “I’ve always been humble, but when it’s time to play the game and I cross the line, I’ve got to be me,” Johnson said. “That’s what made me, me. I’m not a bad guy at all. I have fun. I give you guys things to write about and I’ll do the same this year also. I’ve got to make up a year’s worth of work, so you guys are going to be working double time.” It’s an entirely different atmosphere for Johnson this summer, who has been allowed to be his outlandish self. That wasn’t the case last year in New England. “It feels good to be able to breathe again,” Johnson said. “Without getting into it, you should know what I mean. It feels good to be able to breathe. What you’re seeing now, what you’re hearing as far as how I’m doing in camp, that’s the way it used to be for 10 years straight. That’s me. That’s always been me, keeping everybody loose, including in the locker room, outside, bringing a different type of energy. But when it’s time to play, I always show up and I play.” After averaging 76 catches the previous nine years, Johnson caught only 15 passes in 15 games in 2011 after the Patriots acquired him in a trade with Cincinnati for a pair of draft picks. Johnson, though, said he didn’t regret his one season in New England. He said he learned a lot, including discipline, and how to shut up for an entire year. “I never thought I could do it, but I did it,” Johnson said. “I didn’t do one interview that entire season. Even though I wasn’t able to produce, wasn’t able to play like I wanted to, I learned a lot of things there. It’s made me a better player.” Needing help at wide receiver after trading talented yet controversial Brandon Marshall to Chicago in the offseason, the Dolphins signed Johnson after giving him a workout. First-year coach Joe Philbin said no promises were made to Johnson, only that he’d be given the opportunity to compete. Philbin said Johnson has caught the ball well in training camp so far and also has impressed with his work ethic. “This guy likes football a lot,” Philbin said. “He comes up to our meetings sometimes and just wants to hang around. He’s a little bit of a gym rat in that regard, which is good. You like players that

like the game and he wants to know. He’s not afraid of being coached.” Even though his 766 career receptions are 276 more than the other 11 wide receivers on the Miami roster combined, Johnson isn’t taking anything for granted. He said he is approaching camp with the mindset he has to earn a spot and prove himself after last year. “That was horrible,” Johnson said. “I mean, 15 catches? Come on. “I’m working. I’m working like a rookie again. I’m flying around. I’m running around like a young dude, just having fun, being detailed, being consistent and working on my one weakness, which has always been blocking. It’s no secret. Getting open, never been a problem.” Johnson has never been shy about talking to his quarterbacks, and that clearly hasn’t changed.

“The other night we were walking out, we had the (next) day off and I said, ‘Chad, what are you going to do on your break?’ “ Matt Moore recalled. “He said, ‘I don’t know, but I’ll probably be open.’ “I love it. That’s the kind of guy he is. He keeps everything light. He’s been a pleasure to work with so far.” Johnson, who recently changed his name back from Ochocinco after his Fourth of July wedding to reality television star Evelyn Lozada, is serious when it comes to re-establishing himself as an elite wide receiver. Especially now that he’s playing in his hometown. “Being here is awesome,” Johnson said. “I’m home. It’s good to be home and I don’t have a choice but succeed. There are a lot of eyes watching in general, but being here, I’ve got to, bro. Really. Can’t fail. Not home.”

Dawson was Steelers’ center of attention By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

When Dermontti Dawson looks around at his fellow inductees for the Hall of Fame’s class of 2012, he can’t help but smile. On Saturday, the six newest members of the pro football shrine will include four linemen. To Dawson, that’s nirvana. “It is kind of neat and very special to have four linemen, two defensive and two offensive, go into the hall the same year, and for them to have played in the same era,” Dawson said. “Chris (Doleman) and Cortez (Kennedy), I went up against them. And Willie (Roaf) on the same side of the ball as me. “I am surprised we had four going in this year.” It’s the third time so many offensive linemen have entered the hall together. Dawson will be the 12th center enshrined, but the first since Dwight Stephenson in 1998. Dawson’s predecessor as Pittsburgh’s center, Mike Webster, is one of those dozen hall members. When Dawson was drafted in the second round out of Kentucky in 1988, he played one season at guard. Then he moved over to replace Webster — the snapper for the great Steel Curtain teams — and was the Steelers’ best offensive lineman for the next 12 seasons. “He was such a competitive guy, but another thing is always he was so positive,” said former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, now an NFL analyst for CBS. “He had this really upbeat attitude, you enjoyed talking to him, there was a sense of joy to him. He enjoyed the games, the big games, the pressure. He never really changed. “Dermontti is a special guy, very unique talent.” Dawson was that rare center that every team seeks, but few find. He combined speed, strength, knowledge and leadership skills, anchoring Pittsburgh’s offensive line for five AFC Central championships and one AFC title. He made six straight All-Pro teams (1993-98) and seven Pro Bowls. “As a player, I think he really took the position of center to another level,” Cowher said. “His athleticism — he would lead a basic run play we ran all the time. Dermontti allowed us to do blocking schemes that you never saw before in terms of a pulling center.” After being selected 44th overall in the draft,

Dawson was unsure how he would fit in Pittsburgh. He knew Webster was one of the game’s top centers, and didn’t expect to supplant him. When coach Chuck Noll plunked him at guard, Dawson was a backup, not starting until his fourth game. He wound up starting five games that year. Those were his only five starts at guard. “Coach Noll came up to me in the hallway in the stadium after (the season) and said, ‘I want to switch you to center in ‘88.’ I knew Mike was a leg-

end, but once Mike wound up leaving for Kansas City, they gave me the nod in training camp.” And he held the job for 170 straight starts until being sidelined by a hamstring injury in 1999. Dawson played one more season and probably could have continued his career elsewhere in the NFL. “Even when I had the injury and the Steelers had to cut me and I had to retire after 2000,” he said, “I still had some teams that wanted me to play for them. They knew the situation with the hamstring tendon and still wanted me. “But I had a great career in Pittsburgh, why mess that up? I was proud to play with one team the whole career, and that’s a testament to the Steelers. They know the guys who really contribute and who are dedicated to the team and they take care of them accordingly.” Dawson is well aware there will be plenty of black-and-gold Steelers jerseys in the crowd at Fawcett Stadium for the inductions. Pittsburgh is only 77 miles from Canton, Ohio. He can’t wait. “I’ll probably have more than 100 people, family and friends, coming to Canton,” Dawson said. “Black and gold nation will be there.” As will those three other linemen, all of whom Dawson praises for their ability, diligence and longevity. “With defensive linemen, the way they contribute in doing their job, especially in the interior, that is the toughest defensive position, which is what Cortez played so well for all those years,” he said. “He always had two or three guys trying to hit him. Then he has to find the ball and try to get to the quarterback. Cortez was a tremendous athlete for his size and did all that. “Chris did it, as well, but from the outside, where he also had other responsibilities. He could really get to the quarterback. “Willie? Well, you know how they say the tackle’s most important job is protecting the quarterback, whether from the blind side or the sprint side? And they go up against outside linebackers and defensive ends, some of the best athletes on the outside, guys like Chris. That’s what Willie had to face and what he excelled at doing. “I think this is a pretty special class.”

Tim O’Neil, of Bend, admires a kokanee from Odell Lake.

O d e l l Continued from C1 I stepped off the dock onto Tim O’Neil’s North River jet boat and shook hands with Hop Jackson and his son Justin from Yoncalla. For a few hours, we would be adopted members of the Kokanee Nation, that body of anglers that gathers on lakes from California to Utah to British Columbia to angle for that most cynical of salmon, the landlocked sockeye. There were seven boats on the water before us. On the Lowrance depth finder, the kokanee looked to be between 15 feet and 45 feet below the surface, with the occasional bigger blip down below that signified the lurking predator lake trout. Hop, with a 3-ounce sinker on his line, was first to hook up and I lost no time in swapping for a heavier weight to drag my bait closer to the bottom. After a little experimentation, I hit on a combination that fooled my first kokanee of the day. It was a set of Mack’s Lure Flash Light flashers trailed by a Smile Blade Hoochie tipped with purple Fire Corn. When we saw fish splash near shore, we cast jigs and spinners to hook several more. Hop, throwing a Promise Keeper spinner, enticed a big rainbow out of the shallows and Justin landed a 10-incher on a Rooster Tail. Back at the dock, I talked with Jim and Trula Kielblock, fixtures on the west end of Odell Lake and owners of Shelter Cove Marina. Today, after 15 years, Shelter Cove is for sale through Cabela’s Trophy Properties. In light of their decision, the Kielblocks have taken great pleasure in the good fishing that anglers have been enjoying since the April opener. Biggest to the boat this year, Kielblock said, was a 37-pound mackinaw landed by an angler from Redding, Calif. Last week, an 8year-old boy, fishing with a bobber and worm, pulled in a 26-inch rainbow. On the other end of the lake, at Odell Lake Resort, Jon Ditgen agreed with Kielblock’s assessment that the fishing is as good or better

than it has been in the past 15 years. “We are seeing more 15- to 20-pound macks than ever,� Ditgen said, “and catching a lot of kokanee. We’ll be out trolling for macks and see a ball of kokanee on the screen, and put another clip on the downrigger cable and run a dodger and a hoochie tipped with Berkley Gulp! maggots. Sometimes we’re bringing kokanee in the boat while we’re fighting a big lake trout.� Midday, the wind whipped up the surface of the lake, but Ditgen thought we might be able to put the steel to a lake trout if we gave it a try. We ran west from the marina and cut the motor in 130 feet of water. Here there was an underwater hump and we dropped the downrigger balls all the way to the bottom then cranked them back up as the wind pushed us into the zone. In less than seven minutes, we had a mack to the boat, a fish that looked to go about 28 inches. Too small to keep on Odell Lake. Flush with success, we headed back for the lodge, past the few kokanee anglers left on the water. Anglers who want to learn more about fishing for kokanee have a resource in Kokanee Power (, an organization dedicated to the enhancement of inland kokanee, trout and salmon fisheries. Kokanee Power will host their next tournament on Odell Lake on Aug. 18, when kokaholics from across the West will gather to test their gear and know-how. Want to beat them to the punch? The kokanee limit on Odell is 25 per day and the fish this year average 12 to 15 inches. It is an astounding fishery. Last stocked with lake trout and kokanee in the 1950s and last planted with rainbows in 1963, Odell continues to kick out big macks and mediumsized kokes. Just right for your next fish fry. — Gary Lewis is the host of “Adventure Journal� and author of “John Nosler — Going Ballistic,� “Black Bear Hunting,� “Hunting Oregon� and other titles.

Lower Deschutes open for fall chinook Here is the weekly fishing report for selected areas in and around Central Oregon, provided by fisheries biologists for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife: CENTRAL ZONE BEND PINE NURSERY POND: The pond has been stocked with rainbow trout. BIG LAVA LAKE: Fishing is good. CLEAR LAKE RESERVOIR: Water levels in reservoir will be dropping as irrigation demand increases. Trout fishing should remain good, as long as reservoir permits good access. CRANE PRAIRIE RESERVOIR: High temperatures will likely push trout into the old river channels. CRESCENT LAKE: Kokanee fishing has been good. CROOKED RIVER BELOW BOWMAN DAM: Fishing for trout has been good. DESCHUTES RIVER (Mouth to the Pelton Regulating Dam): Summer steelhead fishing in the lower 25 miles of the Deschutes is good and should only get better as August progresses. Anglers are also reminded that the river opened Wednesday to the harvest of fall chinook. EAST LAKE: Fishing is good. HOSMER LAKE: Open to fishing and annual popu-

FISHING REPORT lation sampling indicates that Atlantic salmon and brook trout populations are healthy. Fishing on Hosmer is restricted to fly-fishing with barbless hooks. LAKE BILLY CHINOOK: Fishing for smallmouth bass should be great right now. Fishing for kokanee has slowed a bit but anglers are still catching good numbers of fish. Kokanee are averaging about 10 to 11 inches long. METOLIUS RIVER: Trout fishing has been good. Insect hatches should offer lots of opportunities for good dry fly fishing. PRINEVILLE RESERVOIR: Fishing for bass, crappie and bullhead catfish should be good. Anglers are reporting more bass and larger smallmouth bass than in recent years. SHEVLIN YOUTH FISHING POND: Shevlin has been stocked and is fishing well. WALTON LAKE: Fishing has been good with the best fishing occurring during the cooler times of the day and near the springs. WICKIUP RESERVOIR: Fishing is good with opportunities for large kokanee.

FLY-TYING CORNER By Gary Lewis For The Bulletin

Caddis flies do not linger long at the surface. When the hatch is on, the bugs dry their wings and lift off to fly above the surface, well out of reach of hungry trout. The bugs are way more vulnerable as they make their way up through the water column. And trout know it. If the fish are not taking bugs on top, chances are they are feeding on emergers. Start with a 9-foot leader, tapered to a 4X or 5X tippet. Cast across then roll an upstream mend, let the fly swing and watch for the line to move with the take of a fish. Tie this fly with brown

AKRON, Ohio — Branden Grace is playing the opening two rounds of the Bridgestone Invitational with Tiger Woods, the biggest draw in golf and a seven-time winner at Firestone. It was a clever pairing because they are the only players with three wins this year. Grace is a powerful South African who won the Joburg Open, the Volvo Golf Champions at Fancourt and the China Open. He also is the third African player, who is not well known in America, who will be paired with Woods at the start of a World Golf Championship. By the look of things, Grace is in better position than the other two. It was at Firestone in 2005 when officials decided to put Woods with Marc Cayeux of Zimbabwe, who was making his first trip to America. Just his luck, Cayeux burned the inside of his left hand on a barbecue the week before, leaving a quarter-sized hole in his hand. Unwilling to miss such a big event, he wore a thick glove and fought through the pain to post a 71. The toughest part of Cayeux was getting to the seventh green, going to mark his ball and seeing the words, “PRACTICE� on the side of his Titleist. A range ball somehow got into his bag. He sheepishly called over Woods and Niclas Fasth, and then a rules official, but was not penalized because he was using the same ball. Three years later at Doral, officials looking for a rising international star decided to put Woods with a young South African named Louis Oosthuizen. Upon arriving in America, he watched on TV as Woods buried a 25-foot putt to win Bay Hill, and then get a message from South African Airways that his clubs had gone missing. They didn’t arrive until the night before the opening round. About the only thing Grace might have to battle is idol worship. “He’s my role model since I started playing golf,� Grace said. “Tomorrow is a little bit of a dream come true.� Grace has come a long way in a short time. He got his European Tour card through Q-school, then came out roaring. He won in back-to-back weeks in South Africa, winning in a playoff at Fancourt that included Ernie Els. “I promise you at the end of last year, I would have dreamt of playing with Tiger first two rounds at Bridgestone,� Grace said. “But it shows you if you stick your head down and keep grinding and keep playing, you never know what can happen.� Toms returns David Toms didn’t plan a six-week break in the middle of the year. He didn’t plan to miss the British Open. After his tie for fourth

in the U.S. Open, Toms flew home to Louisiana from San Francisco with plans of taking two weeks off and returning at The Greenbrier. If he felt strong enough, he was going to play the John Deere Classic before going over to England for the British Open. “I got home Sunday night, and Monday morning I went to tie my shoes and my back went out,� Toms said. “I was in bed for 2 1⠄2 days and didn’t move. I couldn’t do anything for two weeks.� He had a cortisone injection and let it heal, but he was not prepared to play Greenbrier or John Deere, and he didn’t fancy his chances at the Open. And with hopes of playing seven straight weeks through the FedEx Cup playoffs, he felt rest was in order. “I’m sure my back was bothering me during the U.S. Open, and then that long flight coming home,� he said. “I didn’t hit a shot for two weeks. After that, it was chipping and putting. I wasn’t ready to play golf. I wasn’t going to be competition. And then you’ve got the long flight over, links golf ... I felt zero percent of zero is zero, right? I wasn’t confident I was going to play well.� Long putters The USGA and R&A are looking into long putters and belly putters, focusing mainly on anchoring the putter to the body and whether any decision should fall under the rules of golf or an equipment ruling. If it’s under the rules, a change would not take place until 2016. Whatever the case, Keegan Bradley might say he had a hand in any decision. Bradley became the first player with a belly putter to win a major last year at the PGA Championship. Then, Webb Simpson used a belly putter in winning the U.S. Open, and Ernie Els used a belly putter to win the British Open, by one shot over Adam Scott, who uses a long putter. “There’s been a lot of belly putters winning,� Bradley said. ‘I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I just think it all happened at once. My generation of golfers have been using these putters for a long time. In the past, I think it was a lot of the older guys who felt they couldn’t use anything else. I think this generation is different and a little more willing to try things. You’re just starting to see it.� Bradley had a good stroke with the short putter, but decided to try the belly. So if there’s a change, “I’m not scared at all to have to putt with a short putter,� he said. And then there is Ernie Els, who decried the longer putters a few years ago until he switched with the famous line, “As long as it’s legal, I’ll keep cheating like the rest of them.� Now, the Big Easy is trying to work his way back to a short putter.

Sisters schools ask for more time to pay off $600K debt

BEND ina Ch


SISTERS — The Sisters School District is asking for three more years to pay off about $600,000 it owes the Oregon Department of Education because of improperly inflated student numbers re-

ported to the state years ago. It’s the latest step in a plan to repay a $1.2 million excess of state funding the district received from 1999 to 2004. The district has been chipping away at the debt since 2007. The situation arose when the district included students

enrolled in a Christian school when reporting to the state the number of participants in its home-school program. An audit in 2006 found that the district had received $1.2 million more than it should have in funds doled out on a per-student basis, according

to Bulletin archives. Without a three-year extension, the money is still due in six years, which comes to about $100,000 annually, Superintendent Jim Golden said at the Sisters School District board meeting Wednesday. See Schools / D5

WASHINGTON — La Pine is one step closer to a new, permanent rodeo grounds and an improved wastewater treatment plant after the House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday authorizing the transfer of more than 900 acres of federal land to the city and Deschutes County. Originally introduced last year by Sen. Ron Wyden, DOre., and cosponsored by Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., the La Pine Land IN D.C. Conveyance Act passed the Senate in October 2011. It passed the House on Wednesday by unanimous consent. The bill now heads for the president’s desk, where his signature will make it official. There has been no indication from the White House that President Barack Obama intends to veto the measure. Speaking in favor of the bill on the House floor Tuesday evening, Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, said that when La Pine city leaders considered expanding, they soon realized they were running up against federal land. More than three-quarters of the land in Deschutes County is owned by the federal government. The bill conveys two large parcels to Deschutes County. See Land / D5

House approval clears way for La Pine land transfer The Bulletin

A La Grande man missing for a day was located Wednesday afternoon near Ochoco Reservoir. David Whitson, 60, was traveling from La Grande to Albany on Tuesday when he called family members to report he had run out of gas. Family members went to the area but were not able to locate him. Search and rescue teams, as well as an Oregon National Guard helicopter, joined the hunt. At around 4 p.m. Wednesday, a member of Whitson’s family located him near Ochoco Reservoir, more than 20 miles from where he had run out of gas on a Forest Service road near Grant Springs. Whitson was dehydrated and had minor injuries, but declined medical treatment.

UGB Continued from D1 Both will hear the issue one more time before it becomes official: the city on Aug. 14 and the county on Aug. 15. The UGB redraw is also contingent on a land swap between Premier West Bank and the Department of State Lands, which own the two narrow plots in question. The plan is for the bank and the state to trade 80-acre parcels, leaving the bank with a relatively square plot in the UGB and the bank with a nearly identical plot outside the boundary. The County Court went into a hearing earlier Wednesday looking to pass an ordinance regulating political signs and left with more questions than answers. The court decided to abandon the proposed ordinance after a leader of the local tea party group argued it was unconstitutional to regulate signs based on the type of message displayed. “In trying to regulate political signs, you are putting yourself on thin ice with the First Amendment. ‌ Fundamentally, it’s a non-starter,â€? said Craig Brookhart, a member of the Central Oregon Patriots.

The court instead directed county staff members to research an ordinance that regulates all temporary signs. An ordinance regulating all signs, temporary or permanent, could create even more problems, as it would contradict existing signage zoning rules for different areas around the county, officials said. During the May primary, campaigners made dozens of complaints that opponents’ signs were too big or were in the public right of way, so County Clerk Dee Berman started work on an ordinance to clarify political sign rules. “I’m trying to do what they asked for and it’s gotten kind of out of control,� she said Wednesday. The proposed ordinance would have limited political signs to 32 square feet and prohibited them on county property. Some complained that signs should be allowed on public land. In Deschutes County, political signs are allowed in the county right of way for 90 days leading up to the election with a permit. Jefferson County doesn’t have a political sign ordinance.

Wright Continued from D1 Appearing in court by video from the Deschutes County Jail, Wright squirmed and bared his teeth while the indictment was read by Judge John McCormick, a retired Linn County judge temporarily filling in on the Deschutes County bench. Deputy Deschutes County District Attorney Jon Char requested and was granted a doubling of Wright’s bail in light of the new charges. With his bail now set at $500,000, Wright must post 10 percent

to be released. Angela Lee, Wright’s attorney, asked McCormick to merge his court dates with the court dates associated with outstanding felony methamphetamine possession charges against him. Wright is scheduled to enter pleas to the new charges and the meth charges on Monday. He has multiple prior convictions, including two for possession of a controlled substance, criminal trespassing, attempted burglary and third-degree assault.

O N Eugene’s Civic Stadium fence is outta there The Associated Press EUGENE — It’s outta there. Volunteers have torn down the weather-beaten outfield fence at historic Civic Stadium in Eugene. A storm removed part of the 12-foot-high wooden fence last winter, and a group dedicated to preserving the stadium decided to finish the job Sunday with crowbars and sledgehammers — but no baseball bats. The group, Save Civic Stadium, wanted the fence gone because it was an eyesore and because transients sleeping at the stadium used it for cover. “Our biggest fear is that someone comes in and starts a warming fire,” Dennis Hebert, president of the Save Civic Stadium board, told The Register-Guard newspaper . “And then that’s it. The whole thing

goes up in flames.” A bonus is that the baseball grandstand and the field itself are now in full view of the thousands of motorists who pass by each day. Hebert said that will make it easier for people to “conceptualize” the group’s plans to renovate the stadium into a multiuse sports

and music venue The stadium, built in 1938, was the home of the Eugene Emeralds until two years ago, when the minor league affiliate of the San Diego Padres moved to PK Park at the University of Oregon. A “For Sale, Lease or Trade” sign was posted on the grand-

stand’s outer wall, but the district is “not soliciting or entertaining offers” at the moment, said Kerry Delf, a school district spokeswoman. The stadium issue will be discussed this fall when the district’s board discusses “a long-range facilities plan,” Delf said. The possibility of building a new middle school at the site has been suggested, but Delf cautioned that “a lot of public meetings” would be needed before any plans are finalized. Hebert said knocking down the stadium to build a new school would be unpopular in South Eugene. “I feel strongly that the community will come out and discourage the district from doing that,” he said.


Workers start cutting up dock that washed ashore • Last year’s tsunami tore the concrete structure away from a Japanese port By Jeff Barnard The Associated Press

With a crowd of spectators lounging in lawn chairs and snapping photos, workers on Wednesday started cutting up the boxcar-sized Japanese dock that was torn away from a fishing port by last year’s tsunami and washed up on a beach near Newport. The plan is to cut the 165-ton concrete dock into five slices, like a loaf of bread, using a piece of equipment called a wire saw. If all goes well, the work should be finished by today, leaving nothing but a depression in the sand until the ocean waves fill the beach back in again. “We really are trying to keep in mind that this came from a massive disaster in Japan and try to treat it with the respect it deserves,” Scott Korab, director of business development for Ballard Diving and Salvage of Vancouver, Wash., said over the low rumble of the wire saw and the roar of the wind. “We are trying to complete the job in a safe and timely manner, and make sure we are giving the public all the time they need to get some last photos of everything as well,” he said. The pieces will be lifted by a crane onto flatbed trucks. The trucks will drive over the soft sand on a temporary roadway of planks and steel plates. Biologists will check the bottom of each slice for invasive species. The pieces, one to a truck, will be driven to the Portland suburb of Sherwood for dismantling. The dock washed ashore on Agate Beach north of Newport on June 5.

Workers use a wire saw to slice up a dock into sections on Agate Beach, near Newport, on Wednesday. The Japanese dock washed ashore after being torn away by last year’s tsunami.

An 11-foot piece bearing a mural of blue waves that mysteriously appeared on the dock in the past week will be cut off and returned to Newport for use in a memorial to be erected somewhere yet to be determined, Korab said. The Oregon Historical Society has asked for a piece, as has a museum at the University of Oregon, said Parks Department spokesman Chris Havel. Korab’s company won the contract from the department with a bid of $84,155. Workers dug around the dock to the bottom, then snaked a PVC pipe through the sand underneath and threaded the cutting wire through. Then they hooked it up to a motor and pulleys on top of the dock that keep the wire running in a loop, cutting through the mass of concrete and rebar. Workers have a diagram of the dock to plot the best path for cutting. The 60-some spectators, kept about 150 feet away by

a fence of safety tape, were a new element for the workers, Korab said. “We have people kind of camping out as if this was a parade. People brought their lawn chairs and are finding logs to sit on, watching it all unfold,” he said. The dock became an international sensation after coming to rest in Oregon. A commemorative plaque showed it was one of four owned by Aomori Prefecture that broke loose from the port of Misawa on the northern tip of the main island during the 2011 tsunami. Joe Kruger, a retired construction superintendent from Albany, drove over with his wife to watch the spectacle. He was looking forward to seeing the crane lift one of the pieces onto a truck. “Until that happens, there isn’t going to be much,” he said. “That concrete sawing is pretty dull.” His wife, Suzette Hughes, said they were at the beach

just a few miles away the day the dock washed up, but didn’t learn about it until they got home. She collected pieces of pumice from the beach after the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption, missed the 1970 attempt to dispose of a dead whale by blowing it up with dynamite, and remembers her grandmother having to go to higher ground when the 1964 Alaska earthquake generated a tsunami that hit the Oregon Coast. There will be no souvenirs for onlookers this time, Korab said. The wire saw makes a very clean cut, and everything will be hauled away. Scientists have warned that the 1.5 tons of seaweed, mussels, barnacles and starfish attached to the dock represented a significant threat from invasive species. Volunteers scraped it all off, buried it above the high water line, and sterilized the dock with torches.

School gun suspect to plead guilty

was found in a utility trailer on July 11.

GRANTS PASS — A man authorities feared may have been plotting a sniper attack at a high school football game is scheduled to be back in court next week to change his plea. Federal prosecutor Judith Harper says Raphael Amoroso will plead guilty to charges of being a marijuana user in possession of a gun and having a gun on school grounds. The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Medford. Harper said Amoroso will be sentenced at a later date. The 26-year-old self-employed handyman has been held without bail since October. He was arrested after approaching a police officer outside Grants Pass High School hours after a football game. A search of his car revealed a loaded pistol, 200 rounds of rifle ammunition, binoculars, a camouflage jacket and a novel about a rogue federal agent who opens fire on a football game.

Signature gatherer arrested at fair COOS BAY — Police arrested a paid signature gatherer at the Coos County Fair after she declined to move away from the entrance and wouldn’t give her name to the arresting officer. Fifty-year-old Laurie Grooman, of Newberg, was charged with criminal trespassing and interfering with a police officer. The World newspaper of Coos Bay reports that Grooman was collecting signatures last week for a home-rule charter proposal that would alter Coos County government. Several initiative supporters expressed concern that the arrest was politically motivated. But Myrtle Point Police Chief Rock Rakosi says officers only approached the woman because she was a nuisance and wouldn’t comply with the fair manager’s request to move to a different part of the fairgrounds.

ALBANY — A body found in a Linn County reservoir has been identified as a 40-yearold man who left a suicide note. Sheriff Tim Mueller said Wednesday that deputies recovered the body from Carmen Reservoir on July 28 and dental records confirmed that it was Jonathan Harper, of Eugene. The Sheriff’s Office found a backpack that belonged to Harper on July 10, prompting Eugene police to check his residence. Officers discovered the note dated July 9. Mueller said foul play is not suspected.

Cat screams for help, is saved from fire PORTLAND — Firefighters who responded to a southeast Portland apartment fire could hear screaming inside and see smoke seeping from under the door. So they kicked in the door and found — a cat. Fire spokesman Ron Rouse says the cat, named Dude, was fine after the firefighters took him outside Wednesday evening and gave him some oxygen. Rouse says the apartment resident had taken some warm clothes from the dryer and set them on a couch near some oily rags, which created spontaneous combustion.

Lifeguard billed $2,600 after rescue PORTLAND — A lifeguard from Vancouver who rescued a 12-year-old at Rockaway Beach near Tillamook was billed nearly $2,600. John Clark, 17, a lifeguard at a community center, was at the beach last month when he heard screams for help. He dived through breakers and heavy swells to keep the boy afloat until personal watercraft arrived and pulled them to shore. KOIN reports Clark had a headache, so he went with the boy in an ambulance to Tillamook General Hospital. He thought it was standard procedure until several weeks later when the bill arrived: about $450 for the emergency room, $230 for the doctor bill and $1,900 for the 15-mile ambulance ride. — From wire reports

A year and a half later, car used in suicide attempt still stuck in river The Associated Press GOLD HILL — Nearly a year-and-a-half ago, a 36-yearold woman attempted suicide by driving into the Rogue River at Valley of the Rogue State Park. The woman had second thoughts and escaped from the water. But her Subaru Outback is still there. “We’re wondering why nothing has been done,” Penny Toman, 59, told the Mail Tribune newspaper. From her deck overlooking the river, she can see the top of the vehicle about a foot below the water’s surface. At the time of the suicide

attempt, a Jackson County sheriff’s spokeswoman said the car would be removed in a few days. But that timetable proved wildly optimistic. Sheriff’s officials said they had a difficult time locating the car because of high water levels and currents that moved the car downstream. Now that the Subaru is visible, discussions between the woman’s insurance company, which is responsible for removing the car, and Valley of the Rogue officials have delayed the removal process. The insurance company, Progressive, contacted Valley

of the Rogue several weeks ago about removing the car. Company spokesman Jeff Sibel said part of the reason it has taken Progressive so long to remove the vehicle is that sheriff’s officials couldn’t locate it. Now, Sibel said, the insurance company has spent the past few weeks negotiating with the state about where and how to remove the car. Valley of the Rogue manager Pete Reinhardt said the best option might be to remove the car using a helicopter so it doesn’t damage the 10- to 20-foot banks in the area. It would take five minutes or less, he said.



E Bureaucracy foils fire prevention


The Bulletin

Chairwoman Publisher Editor-in-Chief Editor of Editorials

t’s nearly two years since a fire-prevention program was halted because regulators said Deschutes County had cleared areas not approved under federal grants.

That’s two years in which critical fire prevention has not

been done while local, state and federal officials hold meetings, review past steps and write memos. Imagine the cost of all that bureaucracy. Imagine all the fire prevention that could have been done instead. Imagine if your home had burned while the bureaucrats fiddled. That’s not an idle notion: In 1990, the Awbrey Hall Fire destroyed 37 homes and burned more than 3,000 acres in and near Bend. In 1996, the Skeleton Fire burned 19 homes and about 18,000 acres east of Bend. One result was a new focus on what insiders call “pre-disaster mitigation,� which means cleaning up fire fuels to make fire less likely to spread, especially around residential areas. Federal money was made available, and Deschutes and other area counties won grants worth millions of dollars. Trouble is, Deschutes was way too efficient. By enlisting homeowner volunteers, it managed to clear more land than planned. And due to misunderstandings, some of that land was outside the area approved in advance by federal regulators. Thus the work stoppage, and a demand that Deschutes pay back some of the money. There’s

When federal officials approach a meeting Friday at the Deschutes Services Building in Bend, they need to demonstrate a focus on the goal — fire prevention — and find a way to let the regulations serve that goal. no claim, though, that the areas cleared didn’t need it, or wouldn’t have qualified if they’d been assessed. Recent reports suggest the dispute might be nearing resolution, although a new worry has arisen. Former Deschutes County Forester Joe Stutler fears the money could dry up if the issue isn’t settled by the end of the federal fiscal year on Sept. 30. When federal officials approach a meeting Friday at the Deschutes Services Building in Bend, they need to demonstrate a focus on the goal — fire prevention — and find a way to let the regulations serve that goal. It’s way past time for the dispute to be settled and the critical fire prevention work to resume.

Strong leaders in the war on homelessness, poverty


haron Miller and Scott Cooper come from very different backgrounds, yet both have spent their adult lives helping others. Now, as Miller retires from NeighborImpact, it’s fitting that Cooper will take over. Miller, who arrived in Bend in 1986 from California after growing up and attending college in New Jersey, has worked for NeighborImpact, formerly COCAAN, the Central Oregon Community Action Agency Network, almost since the day she came to town. During her 26-year tenure, she’s seen the agency grow into a multimillion-dollar institution that oversees 10 major programs ranging from Head Start to the region’s food bank to efforts to improve both housing and education for those in need. Equally important, she’s pushed, ever so gently, to help Central Oregonians understand that small towns, too, have citizens for whom poverty makes life a daily struggle. NeighborImpact’s Empty Bowls event, held in November, is an annual reminder that for some, even a meal of hot soup can be hard to

come by. The Homeless Leadership Coalition, which brings together some 40 institutions and individuals concerned about homelessness in the region, owes its existence in part to her, as well. Cooper, meanwhile, is a Crook County native, a two-term county judge and current member of the county school board. He has headed the Partnership to End Poverty, based in Redmond, for the last two years. The Partnership describes itself as a “social entrepreneurial nonprofit organization� working to bring about “systemic and positive change� for low-income people. Cooper will bring a different set of skills than Miller’s to NeighborImpact, no doubt. He inherits an agency that is a far cry from its relatively humble beginnings, with multiple offices and more employees than he’s worked with in the last couple of years. What he will not do is be any less dedicated than Miller to the cause of improving life for the region’s least fortunate.

My Nickel’s Worth Bad rap on Crane Shed Once in a while I read an article that needs clarifying, such as the one about the Crane Shed. Right now, there could be a beautiful building making tax money for the city, with architectural reminders of the Crane Shed. Several of the investors on this project are friends of mine and the sabotage done against them was shameful. The building was condemned and the insurance company was going to drop the coverage because rotten timbers made it dangerous. The building had some asbestos in the roofing, so you can imagine the cost of having that done piece by piece. Crown Investment Group went to court and got approval to tear down the building, but it was going to take four days to get the permit in hand. A friend working for the city warned them that a group was filing an injunction that might tie it up for two more years so they could financially break Crown. Crown felt it had no choice, so it did the safest thing and pulled the building down like a parallelogram, leaving the roof intact; there was hardly any asbestos in the air. I think Crown got a bad rap and Bend lost a chance for a fine building, jobs and increased tax base instead of the blight that is there now. It may make a cute reminder as a bus stop, but it is just one more loss created by the people who stopped this project and many others I could mention. Nils Kristiansen Bend

Dumbfounded by voter ID controversy I am dumbfounded by the controversy over the states that are finally trying to assure that all who vote are actually the person they claim

to be before allowing them to cast a ballot. It seems elementary that if you are required to have proper ID to drive a car, cash a check or even participate in a beauty contest such as the Miss America contest (see article in The Bulletin, July 20) you most certainly should present ID to vote for who will lead this country for the next four years. Those who say these laws are discriminatory are correct. These laws are designed to discriminate against those who are not entitled to vote in this country. Claiming that they are meant to keep certain American citizens from voting (who are otherwise entitled to do so) is disingenuous at best and an outright attempt to fraudulently influence the election with illegal voters at worst. Assuring that a person is an American citizen before allowing them to vote for the next American president is not un-American, but rather the only way to be sure Americans are electing those who lead America. Oh, and God bless America. Gregory Pluchos Redmond

Bulletin wrong on Penn State penalties I believe The Bulletin editorial staff got it wrong when it said the NCAA is “punishing the innocent in Penn State scandal ... Totally innocent students, coaches, athletes, employees and local merchants will all lose.� The reason Penn State is being punished is because the coaches and administrators involved prioritized football, their sponsors, their reputation and future bowl wins over the physical protection of children. Students, athletes, employees, alumni, merchants and football fans helped contribute to this choice because the coaches believed all these people cared about football more than protecting children from

a dangerous pedophile. For those in Happy Valley, football is next to godliness. I should know. I graduated from the university in 2005. Football defines the culture of Penn State and the area that surrounds it. All those people who contributed to that culture are not innocent. They are part of the problem. There are things that are more important than winning bowl games and making money. Lots of things. It seems that the people of Penn State need to be shaken awake to this fact. The NCAA just woke them up. As an alumna, I say this with pride: Penn State deserved it, and this punishment will make it a better school, filled with better people, who stand for better things. Thank you. Elizabeth Ullrich Bend

Why no contribution from Pacific Power? According to The Bulletin’s July 19 editorial, “The prime cause (of the silt buildup in Mirror Pond) is the nearby hydroelectric dam that slows the water flow, causing sediment to drop and build up in the pond.� The dam is owned by Pacific Power. To address the sediment problem, a “staff study� has been commissioned, with the city of Bend and the Bend Park & Recreation District each contributing $100,000 to the effort, from our tax dollars. Why are taxpayers on the hook for this study? Why no contribution from Pacific Power? Not only is its dam responsible for the silt buildup, but it is benefiting from a nice revenue stream generated by our river. Why the silence from Pacific Power? Why aren’t we asking more of it?

Keep Redmond birth center open as option for moms By Deb Shaffer ecently, The Bulletin featured a front-page headline announcing a proposed closure of St. Charles Redmond’s birth center. The story struck me emotionally not only because the decision would impact my job, but also because I recently delivered a baby in that birth center. At first my response was anger directed at the article itself. “Why is this ‘maybe’ making the front-page news?� But I’m glad the article was published. The community needs to know that its options could be limited in the near future. I’ve heard many statistics since about the number of births in Redmond actually being on the increase, about patient satisfaction


scores, about the impact this closure will have on the rest of the hospital, about money. But birth is not about numbers. Sitting among a group of women discussing their own births, it becomes apparent that birth is a very personal experience that impacts women for the rest of their lives. I am unique in that I have worked in both the St. Charles Bend and Redmond birth centers and I have delivered my own children in both the Bend and Redmond birth centers. All told, I have had six births. Two of them were in Bend and two of them were in Redmond. The birth center in Bend is a safe place to deliver and it is filled with caring individuals. But there is something very special about the

IN MY VIEW birth center in the smaller hospital of Redmond. I hope for the community of Central Oregon to know how special that place is. The Redmond birth center has a culture of caregivers who are passionate about the individuality of birth. A woman’s choices in how she wishes to birth are honored and respected within the walls of a hospital. Now that my initial anger over the proposed closure has subsided, I’m just sad. The potential loss of that culture, and the option the women have to deliver there, breaks my heart. The baby I recently delivered was just a bit too early and needed to be

transported to Bend’s NICU. Looking back now, would I have chosen to deliver in Bend knowing that logistically that would have been easier, knowing that I would have received good care? No. The labor was difficult and I don’t know how I would have coped without the team of passionate people who cared for me. One might say that because they are my co-workers they took better care of me. Because they are my coworkers, I know that they care for every woman as they cared for me. Women in our country, including many women in our community, are choosing to deliver their babies outside of the hospitals. The notion has even been suggested that this is why the Bend birth center has experienced a decrease in birth numbers.

Research birth and find very quickly that women like options. Women want some control over what happens to them. Some women are scarred by the removal of those options in previous experiences. Women choose to deliver where their choices will be honored. I don’t know if keeping the Redmond birth center open would be a good business decision or not. The numbers that I have heard make me think that it would be. But birth is not about numbers. Birth is a once-in-a-lifetime moment when families are made. Birth is about a woman’s choices. Don’t remove this choice from the women of Central Oregon. — Deb Shaffer is an R.N. at St. Charles Redmond.

He passed peacefully and is now in God’s loving embrace. He will be dearly Damien missed by Bevando his family and so many wonderful friends. Damien had a lust for life like no other.

New York Times News Service

The Associated Press MEDFORD — The Oregon secretary of state has dismissed $75 fines levied against Medford’s current and former police chiefs for their comments about a medical marijuana initiative. Current Chief Tim George and former Chief Randy Schoen, who retired last year, were fined by the Elections Division for comments they made to the Mail Tribune in 2010 about Measure 74. The measure to license medical marijuana dispensaries failed. An administrative law judge ruled the state didn’t prove George’s statements were specifically about Measure 74 or that Schoen’s comments were made in his capacity as police chief. Public employees can’t promote or oppose candidates or initiatives on the job, but they still have the right to express personal political views. “The bottom line is the administrative law judge did not feel we violated election law,� George told the Mail Tribune. In a Mail Tribune article that ran a month before the election, Schoen was quoted as saying, “I’m concerned about how it could affect neighborhoods� and “This measure doesn’t go far enough to control who can run a dispensary. A convict-

ed felon can run a dispensary.� He also said the initiative would be a violation of federal law. George was quoted as saying the measure was “rife with problems and the potential for abuse.� Laird Funk, a supporter of the measure, filed complaints against Schoen, George, Medford Police Deputy Chief Tim Doney and Oregon State Police Sgt. Erik Fisher the day after they were quoted. Funk claimed they violated state bans on public employees stumping for or against candidates or measures during work hours. The men responded to the state’s allegations in writing. All agreed they were on the job during working hours during their interviews. Doney and Fisher each received warnings from the Elections Division but were not fined. George and Schoen opted to fight their $75 fines and testified before Senior Administrative Law Judge Ken Betterton on April 19 in Salem. “We gave factual information that was not intended to influence voters,� Schoen said Tuesday. “It would have been a lot easier for both of us to pay the $75. But that wouldn’t have been right because we were speaking the truth.�


ter table in the area, he said. The extra space will allow the city to move off a septic system and into a municipal system, he said. After the bill passed, La Pine City Manager Steve Hasson said the bill is a relief for La Pine, and shows that the city, which incorporated in 2006, is up and coming. “It facilitates a lot of things, and more important than that, it gives us some energy and purpose that we didn’t have before,� he said. City and county leaders will now coordinate with the Bureau of Land Management to ensure a smooth transition, he said.

In addition, the city would take ownership of a 10-acre lot where the library stands. “This is a commonsense bill that brings us together, and we can actually get something done for the folks back home,� Walden said.

Pete Miller September 4, 1933 - July 23, 2012 Pete Miller, 78, lost his battle with prostate cancer and departed this life to begin his life in heaven. Nancy, his wife of 58 years, was by his bedside. Pete was born September 4, 1933, eldest of three siblings, to James and Helen Miller in Bend, Oregon. He was raised in Bend, until he left to join the Navy where he served our country for three years. Upon returning to Bend, he met the love of his life, Nancy Roebuck, and they were married on November 7, 1954. Pete leaves behind four children he raised with Nancy while residing in Bend; Mike (Sheryl), Mark (Terry), Marcia (Randy), and Matt (Deborah) Pete built many custom homes and commercial construction sites throughout Oregon. In 1981, Pete’s dream was fulfilled when he and his son, Mark, came to Alaska to work. In a very short time Pete realized he found heaven on earth and this is where he wanted to spend the rest of his life. So he moved his family to Alaska, where he eventually retired in Soldotna. He was also responsible for building many schools and commercial buildings in remote Alaska, and was well respected by the native community and worked his latter years for the Kenai Borough. After retiring he built Nancy her dream home in Soldotna. In the winter, Pete could be found snow machining on the lakes and during the summer, fishing on the river where he met and made many friends from all around the world. Pete loved hunting and the outdoors and always said, “This was where I am closest to God.� Pete loved people; especially children, and after a few minutes, no one was a stranger. Everyone that had the good fortune of meeting him was blessed with his good humor and friendship. He will be missed forever but never forgotten. Pete is survived by his wife, Nancy Miller of Soldotna, Alaska, his four children, ten grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, his siblings, Dave Miller (Auni) Bend, Oregon, and Mary Van Brocklin (Les) Bend, Oregon. He was also looking forward to welcoming two new great-grandchildren this year. At his request there will be no service, which, by the way, is totally Pete.

IN BRIEF Stock prices affected by glitch A technical glitch at a major processor of stock trades caused wild swings in a number of stocks. Some stocks moved dramatically shortly after the opening of trading Wednesday. Wizzard Software, which closed Tuesday night at $3.50, shot above $14 in the first minutes of trading, according to data compiled by FactSet. The glitch occurred at Knight Capital, one of the largest processors of stock trades. The company said in a statement that a “technology issue” had occurred in its market-making unit related to the routing of shares of about 150 stocks to the New York Stock Exchange. Knight told its clients to send their orders away from its system and said it was reviewing the issue.

Fed holds off on stimulus for now WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve officials shied away from taking new policy action Wednesday but gave a stronger indication that they are likely to launch a new round of stimulus to support the faltering economy and job growth. Fed policymakers, at the conclusion of their two-day meeting, acknowledged that economic activity has “decelerated somewhat over the first half of this year,” whereas in their previous statement in June, officials said the economy had been expanding moderately. The new statement also said employment growth has been slow in recent months while inflation has dropped since earlier this year.

Boot camp offers cash incentive By Jordan Novet The Bulletin

The entrepreneur-training program formed in Bend last year has changed its name and plans to provide startup funding to certain participants. VentureBox has become FoundersPad because of a trademark issue, said Chris Capdevila, one of the program’s business coaches, or mentors. Other mentors include Dan Hobin, CEO of the Bend online-marketing company G5, and that company’s chief technology officer, Chris Kraybill. The training program also

has switched from its original structure as part of a nonprofit to a for-profit entity. FoundersPad will continue to run the 12-week boot camp VentureBox started, in which entrepreneurs learn lessons about pricing, management, legal concerns and other topics. Going forward, though, it will offer early-stage business funding to the company the program’s mentors deem the most worthy of the money at the end of the boot camp. No amount has been decided, but it could total as much as $100,000, Capdevila said. FoundersPad also is ex-

pected to offer complimentary housing and office space to participants from outside the area, Capdevila said. Program organizers are working out details, he said. “We’re really optimistic that we’re going to be able to put together a really interesting and fun package to attract entrepreneurs from outside the area,” Capdevila said. Organizers will try to encourage visiting entrepreneurs to stay in Central Oregon and open their businesses here after finishing the boot camp, Capdevila said. Because of the changes to the program, and to take

advantage of an article in the August issue of Entrepreneur magazine featuring Bend, organizers have delayed launching the second class until late September. It had been scheduled to start in July. The original details of VentureBox emerged in October, in the run-up to last year’s Bend Venture Conference. Presented as part of the nonprofit Tech Alliance of Central Oregon, VentureBox secured funding from the Portlandbased Oregon Community Foundation, the Deschutes County Commission and Bend-area entrepreneurs.

Federal funding for phone subsidy cut By Rachael Rees The Bulletin

As of Wednesday, about 60,000 low-income Oregon residents had their telephone-service subsidy reduced by 75 cents a month, the Oregon Public Utility Commission announced. The reduction comes from the federal portion of funding for the Oregon Telephone Assistance Program, or Lifeline, which helps those on food stamps or other assistance programs pay for telephone service. “This (program) is helping people pay for basic phone service, but it doesn’t pay for the entire bill,” said Bob Valdez, public affairs specialist at the Oregon Public Utility Commission. “I wouldn’t say that with this reduction people aren’t going to be able to afford it.” The change makes the new support total for cellular and land-line service $12.75 a month. Typically, Valdez said, the basic level of service costs customers about $15 a month. See Lifeline / E3

Startups try to simplify investing By Peter Delevett San Jose Mercury News

Google delays TV device Nexus Q NEW YORK — Google says it is delaying the Nexus Q, a home entertainment device that was supposed to come out in July. To make up for the delay, Google Inc. is sending the gadget free to everyone who preordered it. Google is not saying when the Nexus Q will available. Google plans to sell it for $299 in the U.S. The ball-shaped device is similar to Apple TV, a small box that can stream music and movies over Internet connections. But the Apple TV is only $99. The Nexus Q sends content from your own collection or from YouTube to your existing TV and speaker systems. Users control it through a separate Android phone or tablet.

Tire inspector Flora Roundtree checks a tire for defects at a Michelin manufacturing plant in Greenville, S.C., which produces about 25,000 tires a day. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, announced Wednesday that manufacturing shrank for the second consecutive month in July, further evidence of an economy growing at a sluggish pace. By Christopher S. Rugaber The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. manufacturing shrank for the second consecutive month in July, further evidence of an economy growing at a sluggish pace. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Wednesday that its index of manufacturing activity ticked up to 49.8, from 49.7 in June. A reading below 50 indicates contraction. June was the first time the survey showed manufacturing contracted in three years. The reading points toward

more slow growth but not another recession. The trade group says the index needs to fall below 43 to signal a recession is likely. The July report also showed factories hired in at a slower pace than June, while new orders declined more slowly. And export orders fell to the lowest level since April 2009, evidence of slower global economic growth. Manufacturing has been a key source of growth in the U.S. since the recession ended in June 2009. But in recent months, factory activity has weakened along with the broader economy.

Job growth has slumped and U.S. consumers and businesses have cut back on spending, lowering demand for factory goods. Europe’s economic woes and slower growth in China, India and Brazil have reduced demand for American exports. “The softness in manufacturing ... does not bode well for growth in the second half of the year,” Jeremy Lawson, an economist at BNP Paribas, said in a note to clients. Financial markets largely shrugged off the manufacturing report. Many are also anticipating possible action by the Euro-

pean Central Bank today. Investors may have also been pleased with a government report on construction spending, which rose for the third straight month. The increase was largely attributed to more homebuilding, supporting the view that the housing market is recovering. Separately, a third report from payroll services provider ADP said businesses added 163,000 jobs in July. That’s a modest gain and slightly below the company’s estimate of 172,000 in June. The figure offers some hope that hiring is improving. See Manufacture / E3

SAN JOSE, Calif. — For a place that’s made its bones inventing chips and routers, Silicon Valley has carved out a neat little niche PERSONAL bringing financial FINANCE services to the masses. Intuit, E-Trade and Mint. com are among companies that have pioneered ways to give people more control over their money via the Internet. Now two California startups are getting into the action with platforms they hope will make it less intimidating to buy stocks. San Mateo-based Motif Investing launched publicly in June to let small investors buy baskets of up to 30 stocks — organized by theme — for $9.95 a pop. A month earlier, Loyal3 of San Francisco emerged to let people buy stock in their favorite companies via Facebook for as little as $10. See Investing / E3

Small-business owner fought credit card companies — and won By E. Scott Reckard, Andrea Chang and Marc Lifsher The Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Most small-business owners regarded the rising fees they paid to Visa and MasterCard as an unavoidable cost of doing business. Not Irvine, Calif., photo processor Mitch Goldstone. Contending that a price-fixing cartel was exploiting him and other entrepreneurs, Goldstone went to war in media interviews, blog posts and as a lead plaintiff in a

giant class-action lawsuit, comparing the payment processors to drug pushers and to the railroads that profited at the expense of farmers. What Goldstone calls his “Erin Brockovich moment” arrived with the recent $7.2 billion settlement with Visa, MasterCard and the banks that issue their cards after seven years of antitrust battles in federal court in Brooklyn, N.Y. The agreement will shift power to sellers of goods and services and could trans-

form how — and whether — millions of Americans use their credit cards. That’s because Visa and MasterCard agreed for the first time to bargain with groups of retailers over fees, so small businesses can team up to gain leverage. The agreement also allows merchants for the first time to charge customers extra for using credit cards, so long as the charges reflect the actual cost and are broken out clearly for consumers to see.

That would drag the processing charges — formally known as interchange fees, colloquially called swipe fees — into the light, so consumers can finally see how costly they are to the businesses they patronize. “If you ask customers what’s an interchange fee, they’ll say it has something to do with a freeway,” Goldstone said. “And millions and millions of merchants just accepted it as a cost of doing business.” See Credit / E4

Entrepreneurs Continued from E1 Through its first class, VentureBox had an executive director, Jim Boeddeker of Bend. Boeddeker said he will not have a management role in FoundersPad. Boeddeker and other investors will receive a 4 percent stake if a participating company is sold or goes public. With the cash left over from eliminating a full-time employee, FoundersPad will spend more to market the program and pay a part-time employee for administrative work, Capdevila said. The new benefits of participating in FoundersPad sounded like good news to Jim Coonan, venture-catalyst manager at Economic Development for Central Oregon. “If they can add value through access to capital, but also by making the entire experience easier and more rewarding for these companies

by providing space, … then that’s all great,” Coonan said. “We want to be here generally to help, of course, our local companies take advantage of it, but if they can also develop a reputation so that people outside the area will actually come and bring their business to Central Oregon, then that’s all terrific.” Dr. Rick Cuddihy, a Bend pediatrician who participated in the first class of VentureBox with his company ziPede, said the early-stage funding could make the participants more competitive and reluctant to share ideas and other information among themselves. “You wouldn’t want to put them into the ring with boxing gloves on,” he said. Giving smaller amounts of money to more participating companies that show promise would be a better use of investor money, Cuddihy said. — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

Lifeline Continued from E1 While the state’s contribution to the program will remain at $3.50 a month, the Federal Communication Commission will only provide $9.25, instead of $10 a month, according to the PUC. However, at least one Oregon telephone service provider, Cricket, has decided to absorb the 75 cents, so the amount of subsidy could vary depending on the customer’s carrier. The FCC plans to redirect the Lifeline subsidy and put it toward funding to increase broadband Internet access in rural areas, Valdez said. He said the change is also part of the FCC’s effort to clean up the assistance program, ensuring only those who qualify receive the benefits. “We have a good verification process in Oregon,” Valdez said. “But that’s not the case in all states throughout the nation.” The Lifeline program, part of the Residential Service Protection Fund, was created in 1987 in an effort to help all Oregonians have telephone service, according to the PUC. Since 2007, the program has grown from an average of 45,948 customers to about 60,000, so far this year. Five wireless and 29 landline service providers participate in the Lifeline program

throughout the state. Funds to support it come from a 12cent surcharge on consumers’ monthly telephone bills. To qualify for the program, Valdez said, customers must receive other state assistance through one of five programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families. “A significant number of Oregonians receive the benefit, and there are probably others who aren’t aware that there is help available to them,” he said. “If you’re thinking about, ‘Do I get a phone or pick up some food,’ those are hard choices. Think about what it would be like if we didn’t have the ability to call 911, the fire department. … It would be a real hardship, which is where I think this program is important.”

Manufacture Continued from E1 Still, ADP has often deviated from the government’s report. The Labor Department will issue the July jobs report Friday. Economists forecast it will show that employers added only 100,000 jobs, according to a survey by FactSet. The unemployment rate will probably remain stuck at 8.2 percent. A gain of 100,000 jobs would be an improvement from the monthly average of 75,000 added from April

manufacturing have been mixed. The Federal Reserve said earlier this month that factory output rose in June as the production of cars, machines and business equipment rose. That followed a drop in May. Overall, manufacturing output rose at only a 1.4 percent annual rate in the second quarter, after a jump of 9.8 percent in the first three months of the year. Americans earned more in June than May, according to a Commerce Department report Tuesday. But consumers

social aspect, which lets users invite friends to weigh in on their portfolios, will help produce better-educated investors. Motif is in the same self-empowerment vein as other new valley companies like Wealthfront and Personal Capital, both of which offer Main Street investors low-cost financial advice online. Another local pioneer in the advisory space is Financial Engines, which was launched in 1996 by two Stanford professors. Financial Engines co-founder Joe Grundfest, a former SEC commissioner, said he doesn’t quite get the appeal of Motif. He questions whether the approach will perform better than index funds over the long haul and whether the costs and risks prove to be lower. But MIT finance professor Andrew Lo loves Walia’s idea of using technology to democratize and simplify investment information. While he agreed with Grundfest that investors should approach any new online platform with caution before shipping their financial activity into cyberspace, Lo predicted more startups will get into the act as consumer dissatisfaction with big financial institutions increases. “I think this is the beginning of the wave of the

future,” he said. That’s certainly what Loyal3 CEO Barry Schneider thinks. After selling a previous company to DuPont, Schneider was living the life of an investor in Hillsborough when he ran across Loyal3, known then as StockLINC, in 2009. The startup’s “customer stock ownership plan” is similar to the employee stock ownership plans that let average workers buy into the companies they work for in small bites. “I fell in love with it,” Schneider said. “The idea of allowing people to connect with the companies they love sounded so strong.” While co-founder Greg Allio is no longer with Loyal3, having left amid some acrimony, Schneider spent three years lining up technologists to bring the product to market. The company now employs close to 60; its backers include former Facebook general counsel Chris Kelly. Fifth & Pacific, the parent corporation of such trendy retailers as Lucky Brand, Juicy Couture and Kate Spade New York, last month became the first to sell stock using Loyal3. Visitors to those brands’ Facebook pages see an “Ownership” button, similar to the more recognizable “Like” button.

didn’t increase their spending. Instead, they pocked the extra money, boosting the savings rate to 4.4 percent — its highest point in a year. Weak consumer spending was a big reason U.S. economic growth slowed in the April-June quarter to a 1.5 percent annual pace, down from 2 percent in the first quarter. Businesses are also more cautious. Orders for longlasting manufactured goods, excluding the volatile aircraft category, fell 1.1 percent in June. That was the third drop in four months.

said Motif customer Dhruv Mehrotra, a business development manager at Google. He likes the startup’s ability to let him invest in underfunded areas like cancer research. Though he said it lacks some of the advanced functionality of stockbrokerage sites like E-Trade, Mehrotra has transferred about $15,000 from his individual retirement account into Motif. And while the broader market’s up-anddown nature this year has made it hard to tell whether the approach has netted him better returns, he’s bullish on the site in the long run. Former Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt, who is advising the company, says it gives users more transparency than index funds without the risk of buying and selling individual stocks. “I’m kind of intrigued by the ability to see every security in the account and what it’s worth every day — or every minute, if I choose to,” said Levitt. If you want to add or delete a given stock from a motif, that trade costs $4.95. Try that with your mutual fund. Levitt said the idea appeals to a new breed of tech-savvy investors. “These are kids who grew up with iPhones and BlackBerrys and might be very comfortable with making investments and sharing them on social media,” he said. He and Walia hope Motif’s

Continued from E1 Both companies say they can give small investors more control and lower fees and commissions than mutual funds. “This is empowering people,” said Motif Chief Executive Hardeep Walia, who formerly helped manage Microsoft’s massive investment portfolio. His startup offers an online marketplace that aggregates companies into “motifs,” or ideas. You can, for instance, buy into a motif having to do with senior care, or pets, or mobile technology, or even vices (fast food companies, cigarette makers, etc.). Users can put as little as $250 into each motif, and the site offers tools to weigh how risky each is and how its returns compare to the S&P 500’s. For instance, a motif called “Lots of Likes” — which includes the most-liked companies on Facebook, such as Coca-Cola, Walt Disney and Google — has beaten the S&P by 40 points since its inception in 2010, Walia said. He notes that while sophisticated investors have access to all manner of research in deciding where to put their money, the little guy isn’t so lucky. “I sort of can see trends — like, cloud computing’s going to be big — but I don’t have time to look at how each company in the industry is doing,”

through June. But it would still be far below the healthy pace of 226,000 jobs per month from January through March. Factories have been a key source of jobs and growth since the recession ended in June 2009. They have benefited from rising exports and a sharp increase in U.S. auto sales. Manufacturers added an average of only 10,000 jobs a month in the April-June quarter. That was much lower than the average of 41,000 in the first quarter. Other recent reports on

NBC expecting to break even covering Olympics By Peter Svensson The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Viewer excitement about the Olympics is translating into gold for NBC: The broadcaster now expects to break even on the London Games rather than take a loss. “We are way ahead of where we thought we’d be,� NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said Wednesday. Covering the Olympics was more challenging for NBC this year because of the time difference with Europe. With London five hours ahead of New York, NBC isn’t able to show any events live in prime time. In Beijing four years ago, NBC was able to show morning events such as Michael Phelps’ gold-medal swims live during its evening broadcasts. But instead of the expected 20 percent ratings plunge compared with Beijing, Burke said, NBC is seeing audiences up 9 percent so far, five days into the event. “We think that is because of the way we promoted the Olympics during the hundred days leading up to the Olympics,� Burke said. Tuesday’s Olympics telecast, featuring Phelps’ record-setting swim and the gold-medal performance of the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, had the highest rating of any night so far, according to Nielsen’s overnight measurement of the nation’s largest cities. Combined with higher production costs in London, NBC had expected at one point to take a $200 million loss for the games. NBC paid $1.2 billion for the rights to show the games on TV and online in the U.S. Before the games opened, NBC said it sold more than $1 billion in ads, breaking the record of $850 million set during the Beijing Olympics in 2008. It got 10 percent more for every minute of primetime advertising compared with Beijing. It also tripled its pre-sales of online ads to $60 million, as it’s streaming all events live for the first time. The company’s bet that live streaming wouldn’t cut

Credit Continued from D1 The interchange fees are complex as well as arcane. The latest version of MasterCard’s online rate summary, current as of April, runs 131 pages. The Federal Reserve last year cut debit-card fees from 44 cents to 21 cents per transaction. But credit-card fees run much higher, especially for popular rewards cards, averaging 2 percent of a purchase price and reaching 5 percent for minor purchases from small retailers — a cost most Americans have been blissfully unaware of. Goldstone says the ability to bargain collectively will gradually bring down card costs for retailers, who in a competitive environment will pass along the savings to customers across the country. Imposing credit card surcharges is trickier. For one thing, the practice is banned in 10 states including California, although the Golden State makes an exception for gas stations. California Assemblyman Mike Eng, Democratic chairman of the Assembly banking committee, said a recent California Supreme Court decision that federal law preempts state laws dealing with credit cards means that courts could nullify the state ban on surcharges. Eng said he hopes that Congress instead ignores parts of the class-action settlement and strengthens consumer protections for credit card users on the national level. The Dodd-Frank financial reform law “needs to be more explicit and should follow the California law to say under no circumstances can merchants

Co-hosts of the “Today� show, from left, Savannah Guthrie, Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer, do a broadcast of the morning news program from London. NBC is set to break even on its Olympics coverage, rather than lose money as previously expected, the head of NBCUniversal said Wednesday. The company had expected at one point to take a $200 million loss on the London Olympics. NBC paid $1.2 billion for the rights to show the games on TV and online in the U.S.

into prime-time television audiences appears to have paid off. Better ratings could mean higher rates for ads sold at the last minute. Time Warner Inc., which owns TNT, TBS, CNN and other cable channels, said Wednesday that it has seen a slowdown in last-minute ad sales partly because advertisers are shifting money to the Olympics instead. The bigger audience could also help NBC, which is fourth overall in U.S. ratings, promote new shows in its fall lineup and boost viewership of non-sports programs such as “Today� and “NBC Nightly News� during the Olympics. The Olympics run through Aug. 12. NBC is showing the Olympics on its main broadcast network, the Spanish-language Telemundo and the cable channels CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo and NBC Sports Network. It also created specialty channels devoted to basketball and soccer and one for 3-D. The main network is broadcasting more than 270 hours of the Olympics, the most ever. Burke indicated that he expected to break even from a cash perspective, meaning the cost of the broadcast rights and the production

will be balanced by ad sales and other direct revenue. He made the comments on a conference call with Wall Street analysts to discuss the second-quarter earnings report of Comcast Corp., NBCUniversal’s parent company. From a formal accounting perspective, the treatment of the Olympics is more complicated, as NBC made the deal with the International Olympic Committee before Comcast bought the controlling stake in NBCUniversal early last year. Some of the loss was eliminated when Comcast absorbed NBCUniversal through what is known as purchase accounting. Comcast Chief Financial Officer Michael Angelakis said on the call that the end result would be that the company will post a small gain from the event in the current quarter. That doesn’t mean the games will be profitable. Rather, it reverses the losses previously accounted for. NBC lost money on the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, but previous games were profitable, if not wildly so. It has broadcast every Summer Olympics since 1988. Last year, NBC outbid Fox and ESPN to gain the rights for four more Olympics, paying $4.38 billion through 2020.

pass on those interchange fees to the consumer,� he said. “I would like the California protections to be adopted federally,� Eng said. “California has historically led the nation in consumer protection, and this makes sense.� Then there’s the question of whether sellers even find it worthwhile to create a two-tier payment system. A previous Visa and MasterCard settlement with the U.S. Justice Department allowed merchants to offer discounts to cash customers, which has the same effect as a surcharge on credit card users. But few consumers appear to find the offer appealing. Indeed, many retailers say credit cards are king these days, despite efforts by some jewelers, spa owners, movers and even dentists to entice shoppers to pay with cash. Annie Williams, who runs the Los Angeles restaurant Bulan Thai, said credit cards are among her biggest expenses, with fees so complicated that “we don’t know how much it’s going to be until we get the bill.� The restaurant tried offering customers a 5 percent cash discount, but gave up in July “because it doesn’t work,� she said. “I have to say, 95 percent of customers pay with credit cards,� Williams said. “They think about the (reward) points that the credit card companies offer.� Anisha Sekar, vice president for card products at the personal finance site NerdWallet, said that despite such stories, she believes many retailers will at least experiment with charging separately for credit cards. It makes sense that the cost should be separate and transparent, she said,

like the airline baggage fee that travelers can avoid by using carry-on luggage. “If prices are going up because it costs more to transport meat, there’s not a lot we can do about it. And it’s shared equally by everyone who wants to buy meat,� Sekar said. “But if you can break out the cost for using a credit card and can decide not to pay it (by using cash, a check or a debit card), then that’s a different matter.� Goldstone thinks few merchants will impose surcharges but says the threat will force the card companies to lower their fees. “The balance of power is going to shift very fast,� he said. That would be a distinct contrast with the situation in 2005, when digitizing old snapshots became so cheap that his 30 Minute Photos shop slashed its charge to scan a picture from $5 to 15 cents. Technology also was transforming credit card companies, with electronic transfers replacing manual imprint machines and carbon-copy receipts — yet the rates Goldstone paid the payment processors were rising. “I kept asking Visa and MasterCard if they’d charge me less,� he said, “but they wouldn’t even call me back to discuss it.� Fees aside, his business has thrived, morphing from a 1,200-square-foot printing and processing shop to a digital archiving service, Scan, that operates nationwide using e-commerce and the U.S. mail. Now that the interchange war is over, Goldstone says he will devote time to nonprofits, creating a foundation that will monitor the credit card industry.

Kelly Harroun, with her daughter Grace and husband Tim, found out she had breast cancer when she was 33 years old. She worked to create a support system for young adult cancer patients like herself before her death in May.

YOUNG with cancer • Bend woman helped form a support group for young adults By Markian Hawryluk • The Bulletin “My name is Kelly. I’m 36 years old,” the opening line of the letter read. “I have stage IV breast cancer with metastasis into my bones.” Sent to dozens of young breast cancer patients in 2009, the letter from Kelly Harroun spelled out the stark realities of dealing with a potentially fatal cancer diagnosis as a young adult. She had just celebrated her first anniversary with her husband, Tim, and was in the process of having a child through a surrogate. “These are the issues of young breast cancer survivors,” she wrote. “We are in the early part of our marriage or dating. We are having our breasts removed when we could be breast-feeding. We are having our ovaries removed when we could be having children. We are experiencing early menopause. We are in treatment

with children that are still dependent on their mothers. We have husbands or significant others who are afraid they might lose us and raise our children alone. We are afraid of dying and leaving our husbands and children.” Kelly was both seeking and offering support. And over the next two and a half years, she would experience many of the unique challenges faced by adolescents and young adults with cancer. And perhaps more than anyone else in Central Oregon, she would help create that support system and call attention to a group of cancer patients that has traditionally been overlooked by modern medicine. “She is the quintessential example, in my experience, of the problems young adults with cancer face,” said Dr. Archie Bleyer, an oncologist with St. Charles Health System. “More than anybody, she represented the greatest number of examples of the gaps they encounter.” See Young / F4

Vitamins are continually researched and often make headlines, especially vitamins D and C. But when vitamin E makes the news, it’s often with conflicting information. “We have no clue why we need vitamin E,” said Maret Traber, an Oregon State University professor and director of the Oxidative & Nitrative Stress Laboratory in the Linus Pauling Institute, at a recent Science Pub lecture in Bend. Traber studies vitamin E and teaches classes about E and other vitamins.

Serious vitamin E deficiencies, which are rare, can cause peripheral neuropathy — pain or numbness in the extremities — poor muscle coordination, muscle weakness and immune system problems. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which means it intercepts free radicals, atoms that attack components of cells, such as DNA and cell membranes. See Vitamin E / F3

Vitamin E and medications Vitamin E supplements can interact with certain medications. For example, taking large doses of vitamin E supplements with anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications, such as warfarin, can increase the risk of bleeding, especially in conjunction with low vitamin K intake. The amounts of supplemental vitamin E needed to produce clinically significant effects are unknown but probably exceed 400 IUs per day, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements, National Institutes of Health.

Drugs dispensed by doctors cost insurers dearly By Barry Meier and Katie Thomas New York Times News Service

When a pharmacy sells the heartburn drug Zantac, each pill costs about 35 cents. But doctors dispensing it to patients in their offices have charged nearly 10 times that price, or $3.25 a pill. The same goes for a popular muscle relaxant known as Soma, insurers say. From a pharmacy, the per-pill price is MONEY 60 cents. Sold by a doctor, it can cost more than five times that, or $3.33. At a time of soaring health care bills, experts say that doctors, middlemen and drug distributors are adding hundreds of millions of dollars annually to the costs borne by insurance companies, employers and taxpayers through the practice of physician dispensing. Most common among physicians who treat injured workers, it is a twist on a typical doctor’s visit. Instead of sending patients to drugstores to get prescriptions filled, doctors dispsense the drugs in their offices to patients, with the bills going to insurers. Doctors can make tens of thousands of dollars a year operating their own in-office pharmacies. The practice has become so profitable that private equity firms are buying stakes in the businesses, and political lobbying over the issue is fierce. Doctor dispensing can be convenient for patients. But rules in many states governing workers’ compensation insurance contain loopholes that allow doctors to sell the drugs at huge markups. Profits from the sales are shared by doctors, middlemen who help physicians start in-office pharmacies and drug distributors who repackage medications for office sale. Alarmed by the costs, some states, including California and Oklahoma, have clamped down on the practice. But legislative and regulatory battles over it are playing out in other states such as Florida, Hawaii and Maryland. See Doctors / F6

production of testosterone,” said a co-author of the study, Dr. Frances Hayes, a professor at St. Vincent’s University Hospital in Dublin. Researchers studied about 900 men with an average age of 54 who were randomly assigned to lifestyle modifications of exercise and diet, the diabetes drug metformin, or a placebo. The study excluded men with hypogonadism, a condition characterized by low testosterone levels, or men taking medications that could

Teens Continued from F1 “Kids are doing more at younger ages. It’s not unusual to see a fifth- or sixth-grader get hurt,” said Buss, who specializes in shoulder and elbow disorders and is a team physician of the Minnesota Twins. “Kids are trying to do more complicated things for their skeletal maturity.” Time on the tennis court is a constant issue for Minneapolis Washburn boys’ junior varsity coach Erik Telleen. His young teens can’t get enough, but Telleen knows the consequences of too much. Sore elbows, shoulders and knees can lead to nagging injuries in the latter part of high school careers — something the JV coach experienced himself. “Ninth grade is about when you start to see kids experience some soreness in elbows,” Telleen said. “A lot of my guys want to stay after practice and hit for hours and hours, and that is when you get injuries from overusage. These guys want to make it to the next level, so they’re out hitting every night, and that’s when I do have concerns.” Over-commitment doesn’t always mean success, though. Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center athletic trainer Dan Christoffer said it can often produce the opposite result. “If they start developing injuries in youth ball, by the time they get to high school they’re not going to be effective at all and will have chronic . injuries,” Christoffer said. “It is becoming a lot more of an issue. A lot of these kids are singling out one sport.”

Sidelined forever Lying helpless on an operating table, Morgan Stippel saw her athletic career come to an end. The fourth knee surgery of the Stillwater High student’s life revealed another tear in the right anterior cruciate ligament. The operation and anesthesia, once again, took a toll on the 18 year old. She smiled at her mom in the recovery room and began describing a nightmare she had during surgery. The mother’s heart broke as her daughter, who played basketball, softball and volleyball since childhood, said she dreamed that the doctor found an ACL tear during the procedure intended to fix a torn meniscus. “She said ‘No, that was real,’” Stippel, now 19, recounted her mom saying. The news only got worse. After Stippel learned she would need a fifth surgery and fourth ACL replacement (two in each knee), several doctors recommended she no longer play competitive sports. “It felt like somebody had died. That’s how upset I was about it,” she said. “You go from running around your whole life, getting to the field on time, going to the gym, doing your workouts, lifting weights, and all the sudden you just have nothing.” Stippel, the first freshman to make the Stillwater varsity basketball team, pursued the sport year-round. But her first ACL tear sidelined her the next summer and haunted her through high school. The injury, Stippel believes, undoubtedly resulted from overuse. “When you play yearround, those muscles never get a chance to rest and some doctors say that can lead to the injuries,” said Stippel’s dad, Roger, who’s spent five years searching for answers. “If we keep using the same muscles and joints and tendons, we don’t give them a

Massage: Medicine your body and mind ‘kneads’ By Carolyn Butler Special to The Washington Post

Morgan Stippel, 19, a multi-sport athlete, has had five knee surgeries over the past five years. She was told by doctors that she should no longer play competitive sports. “It felt like somebody had died. That’s how upset I was about it,” she said.

By the numbers A recent study in the Journal of Athletic Training looked at 573 male and female college athletes in 16 team sports over a three-year period. 1,317 injuries 29 percent (386) from overuse 27 percent general stress 21 percent inflammation 16 percent tendinitis Note: Field hockey, soccer, softball and volleyball collected the highest rate of overuse injuries.

chance to rejuvenate themselves.” Stippel never played a full season of high school basketball and missed all of her senior season. But she said playing athletics was worth it. “I know likely at some point I’m going to need a knee replacement,” she said after limping through the hall at her alma mater, still fresh off her fifth surgery. “If I look back on it, I would tell myself to (rest). Based on my experience, I wouldn’t play one sport year-round. Try to take a break.” Now a coach of youth basketball and softball players, she’s pained when she sees them wearing knee, elbow and ankle sleeves and braces.

‘Focus on prevention’ Buss’ staff regularly patrols the Web for medical news and studies, good and bad. After a recent study by the Journal of Athletic Training said that nearly 30 percent of all injuries are from overuse, the staff cringed when it stumbled upon news of a high school pitcher who threw more than 200 pitches in one game. “It’s disappointing in that you know how these kids get hurt,” Buss said. Last month at the Mall of America, Mayo’s Healthy Living Clinic held a throwing camp to teach athletes how to avoid injury and improve throwing mechanics. The clinic also offers weekly opportunities for injury assessments and exercise training. “Right now, youth sports is so big that we have to focus on prevention,” said Chad Eickhoff, Mayo Clinic’s supervisor of athletic trainer services. “How can we have those kids prevent overuse injuries and also injuries that cause prob-

Tips to stay healthy Orthopedic specialists and sports medicine trainers recommend: Don’t overdo it. If you are playing a year-round sport, find a time during the year to take a break for a couple weeks or more. Muscles, tendons, ligaments all need to time to rest and recover. Pay attention to your body’s warning signs. If you begin to feel a part of your body ache, check it out and provide it with the necessary treatment. Noticing something early can avoid serious damage. Proper mechanics equal fewer injuries. Most doctors and trainers said that most overuse or repetitive motion injuries can be avoided with the correct mechanics. Ask an expert whether your motion looks healthy.

lems when older in life?” Buss’ staff follows the same principles and avoids surgery at all costs. They believe the right mechanics and correct strength training provide the body with necessary tools to handle regular use. “Overuse is an issue because there is just not enough time for them to rest.” Eickhoff said. “Another part of the problem is not doing enough preventative exercises.” Throwing and “overhead” sports — baseball, softball, volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, tennis — lend themselves to more repetitive motion injuries, studies show. For Elsass, that meant readjusting his shoulder for hitting serves and resting. The adjustments have earned him a chance to play for the University of Nebraska’s tennis team. But he wonders how much better he could have been if he had not overused. “If I had to redo USTA stuff, I’d wait a year or two to get really intense about it. Since I was 10 or 11, I’ve been playing tournaments and competing,” Elsass said. “Just see if that would have saved a little bit. “You go to tournaments and see everyone taped up and kids serving underhand. It’s frustrating.”

I used to consider the occasional massage a blissful, self-indulgent luxury. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve become more and more convinced that regular rubdowns are an important prescription for physical and mental well-being. In fact, there is a growing body of research confirming that massage can be good medicine. “We now know that massage therapy is not just for pleasure, but has significant psychological, physiological and biochemical effects that enhance health,” said Tiffany Field, director of the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami Medical School, which has conducted more than 100 studies showing that massage’s benefits can include positive effects on depression and anxiety, sleep, stress hormones, immunity and pain relief. “We have enough data to say the evidence is there that this really does help with back pain in particular,” confirmed physician Josephine Briggs, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health. She also cites a study published this year in the online journal PLoS One that found that patients with osteoarthritis of the knee who got a weekly 60minute Swedish massage — a popular, gentle type of bodywork that may include kneading, pressing or stroking the muscles — experienced significant pain reduction and improved function compared with those who received standard care with no bodywork; the gains persisted even after treatment ended. One of the most popular complementary and alternative therapies in the United States, massage can be especially advantageous for avid exercisers, says licensed massage therapist Rebekah Owens, an instructor at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In addition to improving range of motion, “post-workout massage helps reduce spasms and cramping, helps relax and soften the injured, overused, tired muscles, and helps to stretch and exercise weak, tight and atrophied muscles, which is also great in hospital settings for patients who are bedridden,” she said. Science is only beginning to clarify the complex mechanisms behind such benefits. A study published this year found that when a small group of men exercised to exhaustion and then had a massage, it led to decreased production of cytokines, compounds that play a role in inflammation and pain, and it stimulated cell recovery — a double dose of benefits. “This work” suggests that with vigorous exercise, there may be activation of muscle inflammatory pathways — we all know that if you really overdo it with a long run you will be aching next day — and massage may help that,” said Briggs,

who was not involved in the research. “It might be partly from the manipulation of the muscle fibers, and partly from stimulating circulation to the muscle.” Experts stress that massage isn’t just a physical experience: “We talk about these as mind and body therapies because part of the way they work is through physical mechanisms, but the touch of another human also has a reassuring, relaxing effect on a person’s emotional state that may impact how the body processes or responds to pain,” said Briggs, who notes that it can be a challenge to disentangle the two in research. “When a baby is crying,” Owens said, “the first thing a mother does is pick her up and pat her back — it’s intuitive and instinctual: you want to be touched and you need to be touched.” Owens believes that’s especially true in today’s society, where there’s so much impersonal communication via technology. “Instead of friends giving each other hugs, we’re liking and poking each other via Facebook, and so we’re all somewhat touch-deprived. A massage comforts, calms and fulfills that innate need; it shows that somebody cares and wants you to feel better, which can be really powerful.”

The right touch The key to an optimally beneficial massage is the proper amount of pressure, says Field of the Touch Research Institute. “When you get a massage, you stimulate pressure receptors under the skin, which leads to an increase in vagal activity,” she said, referring to the vagus, one of the 12 cranial nerves that emerge directly from the brain. This can produce a wide range of positive effects — including lowering heart rate and blood pressure, increasing immune function and reducing stress hormones. “We know you need to have moderate pressure, to really move the skin, in order for all these effects to occur,” Field said. “On the other hand, light pressure is experienced like a tickle stimulus, which is an arousing, opposite effect.” Just remember that it doesn’t have to hurt to help: “One recent study found that the combination of touching and the manipulation of soft tissues was equally effective “in terms of pain reduction for lower-back problems” whether it was through gentler Swedish massage or deeper structural massage,” Briggs said. “A lot of people think they need deep-tissue work, but what they really want is heavy pressure, which is pressing harder as opposed to actually digging in between the muscle fibers and going down to deeper muscles,” Owens said. “Real deep-tissue massage can be a little bit painful, especially if you haven’t been warmed up properly.” “Massage has a very favorable risk-benefit ratio,” said Briggs. “Sure, occasionally somebody pushes a little too hard, but by and large we think of these as quite safe interventions.” Sounds like an excellent excuse to indulge in a massage — or at least to persuade my husband to give better, lengthier and, above all, more frequent back rubs.

Snack like an Olympic champ Are you ready for some Olympics? If so, don’t be a couch potato. Snack like an athlete. Skip the creamy dips and chips. Forget the fried fish and chips, a favorite in London, the host city. Why not take a cue from the athletes? As more than 2,000 of them compete, they rely on good nutrition to provide the energy needed to run, swim, bike and sweat through beach volleyball. Dietitians say lean protein and moderate amounts of good carbohydrates are safe bets for snacking. You can serve lean meats in the form of kebabs. Or choose nuts, which provide protein plus a long-lasting energy boost. Amy Gluck, M.S., R.D., a clinical nutrition supervisor at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in Michigan, says nuts are a handy, easily portable choice. “But they should be eaten in small serving sizes because they are high in calories.” And, of course, you can’t go wrong serving any kind of vegetable. Gluck, 40, an Ironman triathlon competitor, says a veggie tray with hummus dip is a good idea. “Vegetables have a lot of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals,” she said. “The hummus has protein and fiber.” A substitute for hummus is a ranch dip made with no-fat Greek yogurt. — Susan M.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Food marketers have made a big push over the past few years and rolled out so-called “better for you” products to fill the demand for more healthful foods. But a closer look at some of those products reveals they aren’t any better, and in some ways, are worse than their standard counterparts. They can be more expensive, too. Consumer Reports ShopSmart magazine’s June issue features 11 examples in “Junk Health Foods,” but you probably have some in your kitchen. There are hundreds if not thousands of such products on the market. A lot of the junk health foods are a waste of money, and more expensive than the regular versions, said ShopSmart deputy editor Sue Perry. Perry decided to look into such products after spotting chocolate-covered kale chips on the Internet. “Talk about taking a perfectly good food and turning them into junk!” Perry said. “The minute you put chocolate on something, it becomes candy.” Compare Jif Creamy Peanut Butter to Jif Reduced-Fat Creamy Peanut Butter. You might think that the reducedfat version has fewer calories, but it doesn’t. Both have 190 calories per two tablespoons. The reduced fat peanut butter has four fewer grams of fat, but has 100 milligrams more sodium and one gram more sugar than the regular version. In most cases, when fat is removed, it is replaced with additional sugars or sodium to maintain the flavor, Perry said. There’s also likely to be a longer ingredient list with chemicals you don’t want. A comparison of Kettle brand Reduced Fat Salt and Pepper Potato Chips, Kettle Baked Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper Potato Chips and Kettle Sea Salt Potato Chips finds but a few minor differences.

Is it really ‘better’? ShopSmart magazine offers some basic pointers: • Take a quick look at the labels. Compare the fat and calories. • Check the ingredient list. Shorter is better. A long list with a lot of chemicals indicates the food is heavily processed. • Consider the price. Is the so-called heathier version more expensive? Is it worth it?

Calories per 1-ounce serving range from 120 to 150. The baked version has the least fat at 3 grams, and the reduced fat has the most sodium at 170 milligrams. “A chip is a chip. You’re still getting fat, salt and sodium, and basically empty calories,” Perry said. A better alternative? Try some air-popped popcorn seasoned with a spritz of olive oil, and a little sea salt and grated Parmesan cheese, ShopSmart suggests. Consumers who don’t need gluten-free products but are buying them because they think they’re healthier should be aware the products can cost twice as much. “A lot of people are mistaking gluten-free for healthier. That is not necessarily so,” Perry said. “If you are not gluten intolerant, and don’t have Celiac Disease, gluten-free is really not anything you have to have.” ShopSmart compared Pamela’s gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies to Chips Ahoy Original. Comparing serving sizes by weight, the Pamela’s brand costs 49 cents versus Chips Ahoy at 17 cents. Plus, the Chips Ahoy cookies have 13 fewer calories, one gram less fat and seven grams less sodium than Pamela’s. Baking is chemistry. If you use flour with no gluten, you

have to make up the properties some other way, Perry said. Sadly, ShopSmart has uncovered the truth about sweet potato fries versus fries made from white potatoes. McCain’s Sweet Potato Fries have more calories at 160 per three-ounce serving, than McCain Classic-Cut Fries, at 120 calories, and more fat, at seven grams versus three grams. Sweet potatoes have more vitamin A and slightly more fiber than white potatoes, but white potatoes also have a lot of nutrients. Try a baked potato instead of fries, or at least limit the number of fries you consume. If Special K Chocolatey Delight cereal is your secret, supposedly guilt-free snack, it’s time to face reality. You might as well have a bowl of the kid’s cereal, Cocoa Puffs. The nutritional content is about the same. Cocoa Puffs are slightly lower in calories, fat and sodium, with Special K containing one more gram of protein.

“If you need a chocolate fix, you’re better off having an ounce of real chocolate,” Perry said. Everyone needs a fun food once in a while, she said. “We can’t live by the produce aisle and the grain aisle alone. I can’t,” Perry said. Try to limit those indulgences to 100 to 200 calories a day, but go for the real thing, such as a halfcup serving of fat-free ice cream with a few simple ingredients. “Don’t fool yourself by thinking you are being more noble by picking a healthier option. Chances are it is not that much healthier,” Perry said.


Wanted: edible wheat buns By Heidi Stevens Chicago Tribune

If you’re serving your child a hot dog for dinner, it’s fair to assume nutrition is not priority No. 1 at that moment. It’s enjoying the picnic happening around you. Selecting a menu that all five play-date guests will tolerate. Which doesn’t mean the entire event has to be nutritionally bankrupt. A steamed veggie side and a whole wheat bun make for a respectable meal. Store shelves are chock full of them, most bursting with alluring boasts: “Good source of fiber.” “19g whole grain per bun.” “Heart healthy.” What to believe? We’ve learned by now that “whole wheat” is the operative ingredient when determining a bread’s nutritional heft. (“’Whole’ means you’re getting the inside of the grain as well as the outside of the grain, so you’re getting the bran and the fiber and all the nutrients,” Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics spokeswoman Jeannie

Gazzaniga-Moloo once told us.) We threw a hot dog party for a group of 6- to 8-year-olds. The kids ranked the brands on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 is the best).

The results 1st place: Brownberry Select Wheat Hot Dog Rolls (5 points. 8 pack. $2.79; 2 grams fiber, 3 grams sugar) “It tastes a little more like white bread than the rest.” “It’s sweet!” 2nd place: Wonder 100 percent Whole Wheat Hot Dog Buns (4 points. 8 pack. $3.99; 2 grams fiber, 3 grams sugar) “You can chew it more and it lasts.” “It’s really super soft.” 3rd place: Healthy Life Wheat Hot Dog Buns (3.2 points. 8 pack. $2.99; 4 grams fiber, 3 grams sugar) “Too much crust taste.” “Dry.” 4th place: Aunt Millie’s Hearth Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns (2 points. 8 pack. $3.49; 2 grams fiber, 2 grams sugar) “It breaks into too many pieces.” “Too, like, seedy.”

Interested in Indian food? Want to try some Thai?

And, using ethnic spices can help a cook reduce salt Thinkstock and fat without diminishing flavor, said Carver. Studies have reported that ginger, found in many Asian foods, reduces muscle pain and soreness. Cinnamon may help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Turmeric, ginger and garlic may block fat absorption. Oregano has as many antioxidants as spinach. “Ethnic recipes can deliver over two grams of spices and herbs per serving,” said Diego Serrano, director of product development at McCormick & Co, a spice and seasoning company. For example, Indian food typically contains twice as many spices as usual American fare.

Vitamin E Continued from F1 Traber cited studies that said vitamin E, often along with vitamin C, could protect bodies from the free radicals that result from activities such as long distance running and smoking cigarettes. To illustrate how vitamin E protects bodies on a cellular level, she showed a picture that compared two raw steaks, one from a cow that had been fed vitamin E, which was red and plump and moist. The other cow had not eaten vitamin E and its meat was greyish and a little shriveled. The antioxidant qualities of vitamin E reduced the oxidation and fluid loss of the cow’s muscles. But whether the vitamin is powerful enough to aid against cardiovascular disease or cancer are questions of conflicting research. “A number of such high-profile contradictions pertain to differences between nonrandomized and randomized studies,” according to an article in The Journal of the American Medical Association published in 2007. “For example, the effect of vitamin E on cardiovascular disease prevention has been in the center of a major debate in clinical research over the last two decades. Vitamin E is known to have antioxidant

activity, and a long list of citations in the pre-clinical literature on antioxidants suggested that these agents may be beneficial for cancer and cardiovascular disease. Two highly cited publications suggested in the 1990s that vitamin E could decrease cardiovascular disease risk by almost half in men and in women. However, subsequent randomized trials showed no benefit or even suggested increased harm.” “Like its antioxidant cousins, vitamin E supplements haven’t been found to offer any conclusive protection against disease in large clinical trials, and they might even be risky,” according to a Consumer Reports study of top-selling vitamins. — Reporter: 541-383-0304,

M Young Continued from F1 Kelly and Tim Harroun met through on an online dating service in 2006. He was a high school teacher in Bend, she a nurse in Portland. Just a month after they started dating, Kelly felt a lump in her breast, but her doctor discounted it as lumpy tissue. Kelly pushed for a biopsy and by December, just before she and Tim left to meet her family for Christmas, the results showed it was a malignant tumor. The trip offered Kelly a chance to tell her family the news in person. When Kelly and Tim returned to Portland, the fledgling couple decided to take the major step of harvesting eggs and freezing embryos. It might be Kelly’s only chance of having a family. “It was a big decision. At that time, we hadn’t even talked about getting married,” Tim said. “But kids were very important to her. She was 33 at the time and was getting down to the crunch time.” On Valentine’s Day, Tim drove over to Portland to surprise Kelly. He took her to the Hoyt Arboretum and proposed. A week later, the eggs were harvested and fertilized, the embryos frozen and Kelly started her chemotherapy treatments. In July, she had a lumpectomy to remove the cancerous tumor from her breast. “Everybody was very optimistic at the time,” Tim recalled. “Kelly still wanted to have the pregnancy herself. She was going to undertake the hormone therapy and tamoxifen for a couple of years, then carry the baby.” She continued work at Oregon Health & Science University even as she was being treated in the same hospital. By the end of 2007, doctors told Kelly she was in remission. Life as normal could resume.

Normal life? For a while it was close to normal. Kelly and Tim got a season pass at Mt. Bachelor and would spend each weekend skiing. After completing her chemo, her normal menstrual cycles returned and Kelly thought she’d be able to have a baby on her own. Doctors suggested she take the hormone Lupron, which would put her back into a state of menopause and remove the supply of estrogen that was feeding the remnants of her tumor. Eager to have a child, she opted against it. “I wanted to be normal again,” she would later write. “I didn’t really know anything about younger women getting breast cancer and how aggressive it could be.” Late in 2008, she feared a nagging back pain might be the cancer returning, but she didn’t tell Tim of her concerns. In February 2009, doctors discovered the cancer had indeed spread to her bones, mostly in her pelvic area. “I had developed bone metastases,” she wrote. “I regretted not taking the Lupron.” She started another round of chemo — more drugs, more hormones, more surgery. She had her ovaries removed. But still doctors were optimistic. “This is going to work,” Tim recalled them telling her. “Next year your bones are going to be stronger than ever.” After Kelly and Tim married, she moved to Bend and worked at the Cascade Surgery Center as a surgical nurse. But the side effects of chemotherapy made it difficult for her to do her job. Her medications caused the skin on her hands and feet to peel off. She could no longer open pill bottles at work and had to quit her job. “So for the first time I had to stop working,” Kelly wrote. “I have been a nurse since 1991. This put a strain on Tim, a special education teacher, as we were now a one-income family. And we only had his medical benefits.” Kelly was able to work one or two nights a week, as a relief nurse at St. Charles Bend. The medicines also scarred her vocal cords, making it difficult for her to talk. Nonetheless, Kelly kept upbeat and positive. If she was worried about the cancer, if she was concerned about her future, she didn’t share that burden with Tim. Throughout her treatment, Kelly and Tim debated having a child. “It took about three years for us to make that decision,” he said. “It was really hard. We

Cancers by age Young adults with cancer typically face different types of cancers than children or older adults. While prostate, breast, lung and colorectal cancers dominate at older ages, adults younger than 40 are more likely to get breast, thyroid and melanoma cancers.

Kelly Harroun participated in a cancer survivor ski jump competition at Mt. Bachelor in 2010. “Dressed in pink from head to toe, and just as goofy as she could be, but she just loved to laugh and have fun,” said her friend Lizzi Katz.

thought about it a lot. We talked to all the doctors, and basically they all said, ‘Live your life and do what makes you happy.’ ” After her cancer returned, Tim and Kelly knew she wouldn’t be able to carry the child herself. So they opted to use a surrogate. In March 2010, they had two embryos implanted and days later, they were told at least one embryo had taken. It was the same week that Kelly’s cancer markers had gone up again. “That was kind of bittersweet,” Tim said. “ ‘Yay! We’re pregnant!’ and then ‘Booo! Kelly’s cancer is getting a little worse.’ ” Even as a new life was forming, another was slipping away.

Challenges If having a child through a surrogate while undergoing cancer treatment wasn’t stressful enough, the Harrouns soon learned the pregnancy would be anything but routine. An ultrasound revealed they were having twins, but that the two embryos were sharing a single placenta. It was a dangerous situation, in which one twin could be deprived of normal blood flow. At 14 weeks, doctors could detect only one heartbeat and were doubtful that either fetus could survive. Every week, Tim and Kelly would drive to Portland to accompany the surrogate for her ultrasound. One week, the news would be good, the next week, bad. Doctors told them it was doubtful the sole remaining baby would survive, and if she did, she would likely be significantly disabled. But the baby continued to grow, surviving to 37 weeks, at which point doctors decided it was time. Grace Harroun was delivered on Nov. 14, 2010, via cesarean section. She was born relatively healthy, other than a congenital defect in which a portion of her skin did not develop. There were no signs, however, she had any disabilities. Grace would be treated much in the same way as a burn victim, wrapped in Vaselinecoated gauze bandages, kept in a humidity pod where she wouldn’t get dehydrated. The nurses changed her dressings two to three times a day, letting the dressing dry over the dying tissue on the surface and tearing it away. That would allow the healthy tissue below it to heal. Within a week, the Harrouns could take Grace home but would have to continue the treatment. “That was very, very hard for both of us, but it was superhard for Kelly,” Tim said. “(She said) ‘She’s not going to love us because we’re doing this to her.’ It was really hard, and she’s also — in the meantime — taking chemotherapy.” In June 2011, Kelly’s markers went up again. She began another round of IV chemotherapy. Tim used his family medical leave to work only half days, allowing him to spend the mornings at home, taking care of Grace, and letting Kelly sleep in. By midday, she’d relieve him, and Tim would head to work. The cancer was ravaging Kelly’s bones, growing through the top of her femur and into the hip joint. It became painful for her to walk. She tried radiation and physical therapy, but the pain got worse and worse. “I think a lot of the time, she

was in pain but not really sharing that with anybody,” Tim said. “It was Kelly not wanting to burden folks with that news.”

Support When Kelly first moved to Bend, she attended a local breast cancer support group but was disappointed. “The other members were my mother’s age or older,” she wrote. “And although I don’t consider 58 old, these women had different issues. There is now support available specifically for us younger folks.” She sought out Bleyer, who had been running the support group, and told him she wanted to create something specifically for younger adults with breast cancer. Bleyer connected Kelly with Lizzi Katz, a breast cancer survivor herself who had started the Young Adult Cancer Survivor Network. Katz had first met Kelly years earlier. Both were out running with their dogs, wearing their cancer survivor shirts. “We saw each other, and we just started to talk,” Katz recalled. “It was one of the Bend serendipity moments.” Kelly soon became one of the group’s most active members. She learned of a fly-fishing program for cancer survivors and organized a group to go flyfishing. (The fly-fishing movements mimic some of the rehab exercises typically prescribed to breast cancer survivors.) “She wanted to be part of something,” Tim said. “She was very open about having cancer, and she wanted to hang out with other people with cancer and talk about life’s challenges.” She organized groups of survivors to go whitewater rafting or paddleboarding. When a cancer fundraiser invited survivors to dress up and jump off a ski jump at Mt. Bachelor, Kelly was the only survivor to show up. “She was the only one willing to go off the ski jump,” Katz said. “Dressed in pink from head to toe, and just as goofy as she could be, but she just loved to laugh and have fun.”

Complicated life Bleyer said each time he met Kelly he was struck by how much more complicated her life had become. She was dealing with family issues, work challenges and a progressively bleak outlook for her own survival. “It was just a continuous accumulation of this morass of challenges,” he said. “Every time, it got worse.” Each setback underscored for Bleyer and his colleagues the special circumstances that young adults with cancer faced. And each setback only seemed to drive Kelly to do more for others in her situation. “Kelly was one of the more courageous people I know,” Katz said. “Through all of this, she had the courage to advocate for what she wanted in support, and what she wanted in a family, and to make these things happen, despite being a nurse and knowing the medical realities of what she was facing.” Tim and Kelly had thought hard about having a child despite her uncertain prognosis. But even with Grace’s health issues, Kelly never secondguessed herself. “The best thing to happen in 2010 was Grace,” she wrote.

Cancer Continued from F1 “There’s a gap in between we have not had to pay much attention to because (we thought) it had the least frequent incidence of cancer. We’re only now realizing that there are more persons in that age group with cancer than there are children, and we shouldn’t have ignored them.” Bleyer said physicians have not been trained well to deal with patients in this age range. Both older adults and younger children are in much more stable life situations. They’re not facing new jobs or new relationships, not trying to start a family or launch a career. They’re more likely to have insurance and to have a family around to support them. Young adults typically lost their insurance at age 18 or perhaps as late as 22 if they went to college. Now with the Affordable Care Act many can stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. But there are still many young adults with no insurance. “They’re the least-insured group in our country,” Bleyer said. And because they have no insurance, they’re less likely to have a medical concern checked out. That means cancers are found in later stages of development, when treatment is often less effective. And while the best cancer care is often provided in the context of clinical trials, adolescents and young adults have the lowest rates of participation in cancer research. Young adults may also put off treatment because they want to start a family first. It is only in recent years that new reproductive technologies have given young adults a way of preserving reproductive options: freezing sperm, eggs or embryos, before they’re irreparably damaged by cancer treatment. But medicine has yet to catch up. Many physicians rush patients into treatment, without taking the time to explain the potential ramifications. “It’s hard enough taking care of a young adult and trying to relate to them and understand all their issues,” Bleyer said. “But it’s so much worse when you have cancer.”

Different circumstances Lizzi Katz, survivorship coordinator for the St. Charles Cancer Center, said the division of cancer care between pediatric and adult facilities means the needs of young adults often aren’t considered. “The youngest of young adults are sometimes served in pediatric facilities, but often they’re served in general oncology settings, where the norm is for people to be 20 to 40 years older than them,” she said. “When you’re a newly independent young person and all of the sudden you’re either thrust back into

“Grace is healing and thriving. She’s the joy of our lives.” Tim doesn’t know whether they would still have had Grace if they had known Kelly would die. “I know that Kelly was here longer because Grace was here,” he said. “It was a really, really big deal for her to have Gracie, and she fought tooth and nail to be able to take care of Gracie on her own for as long as she could.” By the start of this year, Kelly and Tim were facing the inevitable. Kelly created a bucket list and they started to cross things off of it. They flew to Kauai to

the support of your parents or if you have a young family of your own it’s very different.” While families rally around children or grandparents with cancer, young adults with cancer find that family members — both children and parents — are still relying on them. “I was 40 when I was diagnosed, but I know I was the only one in the chemo room worrying about whether they were going to get it finished in time for kindergarten pick-up,” she said. “I was the only one listening to rock ’n’ roll on my iPod. So I think it’s isolating.” Young adults with cancer may still be dating or starting new careers, and unsure of when to tell a partner or an employer about their situation. “I think it’s really different from somebody who’s at the end of their working life or are firmly established in what they do,” Katz said.

Different cancers Doctors now know that adolescents and young adults tend to get different cancers than children or older adults. While children are more likely to get leukemia or brain tumors, young adults are more likely to get breast or thyroid cancers. Cancers in older adults tend to be the so-called big four: prostate, breast, lung and colorectal. Researchers have also discovered there are biological differences between cancers at different ages. Breast cancers that strike women younger than 40 are biologically very different than breast cancers that occur later in life. And treatment outcomes aren’t always the same. “There are acute leukemias where survival rates of young adults are not good, and that’s very different than in young kids,” said Dr. Brandon Hayes-Lattin, who established the Adolescent and Young Adult Program at Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute. “So what looks like the same disease has a survival rate that’s only half that of children.” Researchers are now trying to tease out whether the differences in outcomes between children and young adults with the same cancers have more to do with biological differences in the cancers or the different treatment protocols used in children and adults. “If you’re a kid, you have this whole team of experts, medical and support staff that has flourished and grown, and really become robust,” Hayes-Lattin said. “On the adult side we’ve also seen major improvements concentrating the expertise and services into the bulk of patients that are seen on the adult side, and that’s the older patients. So if you’re in the middle, you’re kind of left behind.” Hayes-Lattin was diagnosed with testicular cancer at age 28, while he was a medical resident. He was struck by how little he knew about all the nonmedical

They flew down with boxes of medications and medical supplies to help get Kelly through the weekend. The day before the race, Kelly walked with 138 cancer survivors during Ladies’ Day at Churchill Downs. The day’s events wore her out completely, and the ladies wound up watching the Derby from their hotel room instead. Tim had planned a trip to Disneyland for Kelly and Gracie in

aspects of having cancer at that age, despite being a doctor. He decided to focus his research on the adolescent and young adult cancers, now known by the acronym AYA. He helped create one of the first fellowships in the country for doctors specializing in treating cancers among this age group. The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Fellowship at OHSU trains doctors in both pediatric and adult oncology. And because they interact with the doctors in both fields, they tend to raise awareness of the unique issues facing these patients throughout the hospital. “That kind of boils through as a culture to all of oncology,” he said. “So it’s much more common now for people to be thinking of AYA issues.” Advocates like Bleyer and Hayes-Lattin are working to raise AYA awareness among the entire field of oncology but have been finding it difficult to change the status quo. Last year, Dr. Michael Link, Stanford Medical School professor, became the first pediatric oncologist to lead the American Society of Clinical Oncologists. During his tenure, he decided to focus on AYA issues and began to push his colleagues to think outside of the traditional age categories used in cancer care. Link points to studies that have been conducted with leukemia and Ewing’s sarcoma patients, comparing the outcomes of young adults when treated in pediatric versus adult settings. Those head-to-head comparisons found that young adults had better outcomes when treated in pediatric cancer facilities. “The reason for that is not entirely clear,” he said. It could be that pediatric oncologists have developed better treatment protocols, using different types of medications to treat cancer patients, resulting in better outcomes. Or it could be that pediatric oncologists take a different approach to treating patients. “We’re in the mode of curing people. We’re not in the mode of prolonging their life so they can make it to their son’s wedding or something like that,” Link said. “So it’s the mind-set that’s different.” Despite the data, medical oncologists have been reluctant to shift the age-based distribution of cancer patients. Link would like to see cancer advocacy groups develop protocols that would send young adults to pediatric facilities when there is data that their outcomes would be better there than in adult cancer centers. “We actually have the data that we’re depriving a certain group of patients a curative therapy which we know we have,” he said. “Just by virtue of the fact that they go to the wrong doctor or the wrong institution, they don’t get curative therapy. That’s the most heartbreaking of all.” — Reporter: 541-617-7814,

mid-May, but it soon became clear Kelly wouldn’t be able to go. On May 17, Kelly died. Tim is now raising his 2year-old daughter alone and has come to realize how hard it was for Kelly to take on Grace on her own even when she wasn’t feeling well. “I think I have a bigger realization of that now,” he said. “It’s kind of brutal when you’re not feeling good. She was an amazing person. I’m not sure how she did it, but she did. She stayed very positive. She just kept plugging away.” — Reporter: 541-617-7814

Heat, like the recent heat wave affecting large swaths of the country, can change the effectiveness of medications for people and their pets. People need to check the instructions about temperature and storage, says Jill Sailors, assistant professor of pharmacy practice at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. “Make sure that medications are kept away from direct sunlight at home, and do not store medication in the bathroom where the temperature varies with bathing and showering. Also, make sure not to leave medications in your car,” Sailors said. Ideally, medicine should be stored between 68 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit unless it needs refrigeration, she said. For people with diabetes, high temperatures can result in increased blood sugar and effect how refrigerated insulin works,

she said. “Even with a working refrigerator, insulin injections could have been affected by the heat, or they may not work as well because the body is under stress,” she said. Some medications can increase dehydration and interfere with the body’s ability to cool itself, she said. People taking seizure medication, Thinkstock

antihistamines, blood pressure medication, neurologic or psychiatric medication or even those with Parkinson’s disease need to drink more water and watch for signs of dehydration. Sailors offered advice for people who don’t have air conditioning or are concerned about how heat may be affecting their medications. • If your home is not air conditioned, put medicine next to a fan. • If you notice an increase in side effects while on a medication, contact your pharmacist or doctor. • If you are not sure about whether your medicine is still effective, contact your pharmacist or the manufacturer of the medication. • Never store medicine in the trunk of a car, even for the short trip home from the pharmacy. — Harry Jackson Jr., St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Medical debt collector to pay $2.5M By Jessica Silver-Greenberg


Military’s health costs may soar Active and retired service personnel and their families are increasing their use of the military health care system at a faster rate than civilians enrolled in comparable private health programs, according to a report by the Congressional Budget Office. As a result, the annual cost to the Defense Department’s healthcare program could grow from $51 billion in fiscal 2013 to $65 billion by 2017 and to $90 billion by 2030, according to CBO estimates in the report “Long-Term Implications of the 2013 Future Years Defense Program.” That means, according to CBO projections, the Defense Department, which will pay out 9 percent of its base budget for health care in fiscal 2013, would be paying out 14 percent in 2030, roughly equivalent to what it spends today on all military research-and-development programs. The CBO’s projections are higher than the Pentagon’s because it “assumes that the Congress will continue its history of rejecting DoD’s proposals to shift some health care costs to the military beneficiaries receiving the care,” the report says. The Defense Department this year sought to increase the annual fees in the Tricare program for service retirees still working in private jobs and Medicare-eligible military retirees, and the pharmacy co-payments for active-duty personnel, retirees and their families. Those changes would have generated savings of some $13 billion over the next five years, according to the CBO. Nonetheless, the House voted to prohibit almost all of the Pentagon’s proposals in its version of the fiscal 2013 defense authorization bill. The Senate is expected to follow suit. One reason for the increased usage of the military health care system is that it is cheaper. “Low out-of-pocket expenses for Tricare beneficiaries (many of whose co-payments, deductibles, and maximum out-of-pocket payments have remained unchanged or have decreased since the mid-1990s), combined with the increased costs of alternative sources of health insurance coverage, make the Tricare program relatively more attractive each year,” according to the CBO report. The result: “A larger share of military retirees and their dependents are relying on the program rather than participating in health insurance provided by civilian employers or purchasing of their own,” the CBO said. For example, last year only 25 percent of military retirees and their families enrolled in private health care programs. That was half the 50 percent of retirees who used private health care programs back in 2001. — Walter Pincus, The Washington Post

Accretive Health, one of the nation’s largest collectors of medical debt, has agreed to pay $2.5 million to the Minnesota state attorney general’s office to settle accusations that it violated a federal law requiring hospitals to provide emergency care, even if patients cannot afford to pay. The company has not admitted wrongdoing. As part of the settlement, Accretive Health is also barred from contracting with hospitals within the state for at least two years, effectively ending its business at three Minnesota hospitals. For four years after that, the company will have to obtain permission from the attorney general before resuming business in the state. In April, Lori Swanson, the Minnesota attorney general, disclosed hundreds of Accretive’s internal documents that outlined aggressive collection tactics, including embedding debt collectors in emergency rooms and pressuring patients to pay before receiving treatment. In an interview this week, Swanson said “a hospital emergency room should be a sanctuary for the sick and wounded, not a hunting ground for collectors.”

Doctors Continued from F1 In Florida, a company called Automated HealthCare Solutions, a leader in physician dispensing, has defeated repeated efforts to change what doctors can charge. The company, which is partly owned by Abry Partners, a private equity fund, has given more than $3.3 million in political contributions either directly or through entities its principals control, public records show. Insurers and business groups said they were amazed by the little-known company’s spending spree. To plead its case to Florida lawmakers, Automated HealthCare hired one of the state’s top lobbyists, Brian Ballard, who is also a major national fundraiser for the Mitt Romney campaign. “I consider the fees that these people are charging to be immoral,” said Alan Hays, a Republican state senator in Florida who introduced a physician dispensing bill that was defeated. “They’re legal under the current law, but they’re immoral.” Physician prescribing works like this: Middlemen like Automated HealthCare help doctors set up office pharmacies by providing them with billing software and connecting them with suppliers who repackage medications for office sale. Doctors sell the drugs but they do not collect payments from insurers. In the case of Automated HealthCare, the company pays the doctor 70 percent of what the doctor charges, then seeks to collect the full amount from insurers. The number of doctors nationwide who dispense drugs in their office is not known, and the practice is prevalent only in states where workers’ compensation rules allow for large markups. Dr. Paul Zimmerman, a founder of Automated HealthCare, said that insurers and other opponents of doctor dispensing were distorting its costs by emphasizing the prices of a few drugs, rather than the typical price spread between physician- and pharmacy-dispensed drugs. Both Zimmerman and physicians who sell drugs also said the workers’ compensation system was so bureaucratic and complex that an injured employee could wait days before getting a needed medication through a pharmacy. “We did not institute this because of the money,” Dr. Marc Loev, a managing partner of the Spine Center, a chain of clinics in Maryland, testified last year at a public hearing in Baltimore. “We instituted it

Still, hospitals say that they are in a tough position. The more than 5,000 community hospitals in the United States provided $39.3 billion in uncompensated care — made up of unpaid patient debts or charity care — in 2010, up 16 percent from 2007, the American Hospital Association, a trade group said. Accretive Health emails and internal training manuals, which came to light through the investigation, revealed that some employees were told to hound patients to pay outstanding bills and sometimes discouraged them from receiving care. The company fostered a pressurized collection environment that sometimes included mandatory daily meetings at hospitals in Minnesota, according to interviews with current and former employees. Those employees who fell behind collection quotas were threatened with termination. In some instances, the employees had access to a trove of confidential patient records, which they might have used while persuading patients to pay their overdue bills, a potential violation of federal privacy laws. Under the terms of the settlement, Accretive Health will be required to turn over all the data of Minnesota patients that it has collected.

An Accretive Health debt collector asked Marcia Newton, of Corcoran, Minn., to pay for medical care before her son Maxx received it. Such tactics prompted Minnesota’s attorney general to file a civil suit against the company.

The settlement will end a civil suit against Accretive, which Swanson filed in January after a laptop with patient information was stolen, saying that the company had violated state and federal debt collection laws and patient privacy protections. “Even though we believe the claims against us were either baseless or exaggerated, we have used this opportunity to carefully examine our own practices in order to ensure we are setting the very highest standards for our own performance and achieving the best possible outcomes for hospitals, patients and communities,” Mary Tolan, Accretive

Health’s chief executive, said in a statement. The revelations in Minnesota have reverberated across the country because they raise concerns that such aggressive tactics have become widespread at hospitals. Accretive Health contracts with some of the largest hospital systems in the country to help them recoup some money on the unpaid bills that have piled up during the financial crisis and the economic downturn. Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., who is the highest ranking member of the House subcommittee that oversees Medicare and other health services, led

because we were having significant difficulty providing the care for workers’ compensation patients.” The loophole that raises the price of physician-dispensed drugs often involves a benchmark called “average wholesale price.” The cost of a medication dispensed through a workers’ compensation plan is pegged in some states to that benchmark, which is supposed to represent a drug’s typical wholesale cost. But doctor-dispensed drugs can undergo an “average wholesale price” makeover. It happens when companies that supply doctors with medications buy them in bulk from wholesalers and repackage them for office sale. These “repackagers” can set a new “average wholesale price” for the drug, one that is often many times higher than the original. For example, in 2010, a physician associated with the Spine Center, Loev’s practice in Maryland, gave a patient a prescription for 360 patches containing a pain-numbing drug, lidocaine. The worker’s insurer was charged $7,304, according to a copy of that bill provided to The New York Times by a lawyer, Michael Levin, who represents insurance companies. A similar number of patches dispensed by a doctor in California, which changed its regulations in 2007, is about $4,068, according to the California Workers’ Compensation Institute, a research group. Warren Moseley, the president of a company in Tulsa, Okla., Physicians Total Care, that repackages drugs for office sale by doctors, said it charged physicians $2,863 for 360 patches. Loev, who uses Automated HealthCare’s services, declined to be interviewed and did not respond to specific written questions from The Times. Dr. Charles Thorne, a principal at Multi-Specialty HealthCare, another Maryland-based chain of clinics that dispenses drugs, also declined to be interviewed. Zimmerman, the co-founder of Automated HealthCare, said that drug prices are set by companies that repackage medications for office sales. He added that Automated HealthCare referred doctors to about a dozen repackagers. But the company has a relationship with one repackaging company called Quality Care Products, based in the Midwest. The two firms have exhibited their services together and jointly sponsor a charity golf tournament. The president of Quality Care, Gene Gunderson,

declined to be interviewed and the company did not respond to written questions. Data collected by Florida insurers who handle workers’ compensation claims shows that Quality Care supplies about 40 percent of the drugs sold by doctors in the state, a market share three times as high as that of its closest competitor. Robert Mernick, the president of Bryant Ranch Prepack, a company in North Hollywood, Calif., that repackages medications for office sale, said he found it extraordinary that lawmakers in other states like Florida and Maryland were allowing such drug markups to continue. “I see it as corruption,” he said. “I think it is horrible.”

an investigation in March into the company’s practices. Hospitals have long hired outside collection agencies to pursue patients after they have left facilities. But mounting financial pressures on health care providers have resulted in hospitals letting collection firms in the front door, turning over the management of their staffing, like patient registration and scheduling, along with their collection activities, according to Swanson. Concerns are escalating that such that cozy relationships will threaten patient privacy and care, according to consume advocates.

Paying much more in the doctor’s office Rules in some states that govern workers’ compensation insurance allow doctors to charge many times what pharmacies charge for some drugs when they are dispensed by the doctor’s office.
