• The university wants to build its four-year campus near downtown Bend A vision of OSU-Cascades’ future

By Hillary Borrud

Plans for a four-year university could reshape an area currently filled with offices and industrial buildings in southwest Bend. Officials at Oregon State University-Cascades Campus hope to build a four-year university campus along Simpson and Colorado avenues. They are quick to say this is only a vision and they are not negotiating to purchase land or planning to build on a specific parcel, but the OSU branch this year purchased for $3.9 million and remodeled an office building on Columbia Street, where it will offer graduate classes starting in the fall. e.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Four years ago in Denver, Bill Clinton was given the assignment of making the world believe that he liked Barack Obama and wanted him to be president.

Does an organic strawberry contain more vitamin C than a conventional one? Maybe — or maybe not. Stanford University scientists have weighed in on the “maybe not” side of the debate after an extensive examination of four decades of research comparing organic and conventional foods. They concluded that fruits and vegetables labeled organic were, on average, no more nutritious than their conventional counterparts, which tend to be far less expensive. Nor were they any less likely to be contaminated by dangerous bacteria like E. coli. The researchers also found no obvious health advantages to eating organic meats. See Organic / A5

regon State University-Cascades Campus officials have a vision for a four-year university campus that could dramatically change southwest Bend along Columbia Street and Colorado Avenue. The area is currently a quiet office park with a few industrial buildings, including Deschutes Brewery, on a bluff overlooking the Deschutes River. Planners envision a bustling OSU-Cascades campus with classrooms, offices, student housing, a plaza and a parking garage. Since at least 2005, Bend has planned to lure a four-year university to the 1,500-acre Juniper Ridge mixed-use development on the north end of the city. Over the last year, OSU-Cascades officials focused on a different plan that campus Vice President Becky Johnson said will be cheaper, develop more quickly and attract more students. Branch officials hope to grow the campus quickly: from a current enrollment of roughly 800 students to 3,000 in 2030 and 5,000 students in 2050, according to an OSU-Cascades campus vision document. The fate of the ambitious plan now rests with the state Legislature, which will decide in 2013 whether to approve $16 million in bonds necessary to reach the $24 million that branch officials hope to spend on the purchase or renovation of office, research and classroom space. The balance of funding is supposed to come from $4 million in fundraising from the local community and $4 million from the branch budget. City officials said they recognize the benefits to OSU-Cascades of locating a campus closer to downtown, in a developed area. See OSU / A5

The Deschutes National Forest’s plan to build a welcome center on Cascade Lakes Highway, once the subject of an appeal by Central Oregon tourism interests, is moving ahead. The forest selected a designer last month, BBT Architects, and hopes to have a design to present to the public come March, said Amy Tinderholt, recreation team leader for the forest. Construction of the 1,500-square-foot building will start in June. “We are hoping that it will be a very efficient little building,” she said. The 2010 appeal focused on what the building would be used for and whether it would provide access to nearby trails, said Sally Russell, coordinator of the Deschutes County Committee on Recreation Assets. The ad hoc committee was established by Sen. Ron Wyden in 2007 and led the opposition to the Forest Service’s initial plans for the welcome center. As originally planned, the welcome center would have mainly served visitors from outside Central Oregon and not have had much for locals, said Russell, who is running for Bend City Council. Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney was also involved with the appeal, and said the goal was to make the welcome center a hub of activity. See Center / A6 Deschutes National Forest

LONDON — To stroll out of Carlton Gardens into the elegant confines of the Royal Society is to find a trove of centuries-old wonders, from Sir Isaac Newton’s reflecting telescope to the first electric machine to fantastical illustrated catalogs of fish and birds. Then you enter the sunlight-suffused office of the society’s president, Sir Paul Nurse. With his spiky mass of white hair, broad nose, ready smile and thick work boots, he looks the part of old-fashioned knight of science ready to tramp through the fens. But this Nobel Prize winner in medicine offers a very 21stcentury lament. “Policy debate these days involves trying to rubbish the science, and that is dangerous,” Nurse says. “Global warming denialists, those who oppose genetically modified crops and vaccinations, or the teaching of evolution: Their trick is treat scientific argument as if it’s a political argument and cherry-pick data.” Nurse feels this danger more passionately than most, for the society he presides over was the crucible of the scientific revolution that formed the modern world. The society conducts studies, consults on government panels and has 1,450 fellows, about 80 of them Nobel winners. Yet theirs is, at times, an embattled world. Founded in 1660, the Royal Society is the world’s oldest continuous scientific society. Newton, Christopher Wren, Robert Boyle and many more came together in a spirit of revolutionary if at times eccentric inquiry. Magic and alchemy greatly fascinated the society’s founders. King Charles II granted the society a royal charter in 1662, and for centuries it hitched a ride on the back of Britain’s imperial ambitions. Explorers, scientific-minded military officers and colonial officials, and merchants — not just British — collected specimens, mapped unknown lands and recorded observations in every corner of the globe. And they shipped all of this, with accompanying essays, to the Royal Society. The society no longer occupies that globe-dominating perch. The United States casts a much longer shadow, with billions of dollars spent on research and industrial might; U.S. scientists dominate many disciplines. And other nations, not least China, are gaining. But the Royal Society’s journals, particularly The Philosophical Transactions and The Proceedings of the Royal Society, remain vibrant. And British scientists often achieve a written elegance and synthesis of argument that sometimes outstrips their U.S. counterparts. Ask the chemist Martyn Poliakoff, the society’s foreign secretary, if it and British scientists in general are still relevant, and he gives a tight welterweight’s smile. “You conflate quantity and quality,” he says. “We punch above our weight class.” The society’s leaders take pains to emphasize that they are not trapped in the amber of old accomplishment. The British government pays for much of the society’s work, and its leaders join the robust debates of the day, on matters like global warming and genetically modified crops, which they view as a sensible answer to global scarcity. A 2010 report from the society urged the government to invest in science, education and innovation to fuel economic development. It generated much press. But the global economic downturn thrust a dagger to the heart of its most ambitious proposals. A current society fellow, an evolutionary biologist of fine repute who asked not to be quoted by name, says he greatly enjoys the conversation at the society’s dinners (he fortifies himself for the rounds of wine and port by drinking a quart of milk beforehand). But ask if the organization has much effect on the intellectual

Sir Paul Nurse is a Nobel Prize winner and the president of the Royal Society, the world’s oldest continuous scientific organization. Founded in 1660, the society strives to stay relevant, responding robustly to challenges on matters such as evolution and climate change.

battles that roil his discipline, and he shakes his head. “I can’t say that the society is a great presence in my field,” he says. “It’s a challenge: How do you muck your way through and remain relevant?” At the beginning, the question facing society fellows was more elemental: How to challenge a worldview in place for thousands of years?

Mermaids, too “And this is Sir Isaac.” With that, the society’s librarian, Keith Moore, tall, thin with a great crown of silver hair, points to the shutter-eyed and formidable visage of Isaac Newton, an early president of the Royal Society. This is his death mask, fashioned from a cast of his face, sitting on a table in front of me. We will pass the next hour traipsing through the society archives, an expanse of 4 million books and journals and maps and weather charts, along with pieces collected by merchants in Azerbaijan, 18th-century traders plying the coast of Brazil and the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, and fishermen bobbing in the swelling North Atlantic. Moore rattles off the specimens and curios that constitute the society’s haul. Most are cataloged, a few lost. A whale skeleton, a mammoth tusk, a mermaid. He wants to go on, but I raise my hand. A mermaid? He shrugs. “How did the mermaid get on? Where is it today? Anyone’s guess.” The society took root in the soil of revolution. More than half of its founding members favored the Parliamentary cause in the 17th-century civil war that cost Charles I his crown and then his head. During that intoxicating century, nearly everything holy, from royal rank to economics to science to the immortality of the soul, was challenged. In the early days of the Royal Society, knights and earls sat shoulder to shoulder with metalsmiths and merchants. Although rationalists, these scientists viewed God as central to their universe and their work. As Edward Dolnick, author of “The Clockwork Universe,” an entertaining history of the early society, noted, the founders viewed the laws of nature and God as inseparable. They were mapping his universe. The historian Christopher Hill termed this the “stop in the mind.” The scientists, philosophers and politicians of any era confront limits to their consciousness. How do you imagine a world, or even know what questions to ask, when you lack reference points? And there is that question of magic. Society members lived in a time shadowed by apocalyptic dread, from plague to fire to war. They were fascinated by alchemy, unicorns’ horns and magic salves, and they often experimented on themselves. “They researched these phenomena a lot, and they weren’t all wrong,” Moore noted. “They knew there was an

invisible world.” Critics attacked Newton as an occultist for theorizing about gravity, as it was unseen and not mechanical. (Over his lifetime, he would write far more pages on biblical hermeneutics and occult studies than on math and science.) Still, he dominated the society’s early years. Many members considered themselves popularizers, in the best and most important sense of the word. Not Sir Isaac. Diffident, most comfortable roaming the recesses of his own mind, he cared not a whit for vox populi. He wrote his grand work on physics, “Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica,” in Latin. A copy sits in the Royal Society archives. “Newton thought that knowledge belonged to those who were learned enough to use it,” Moore said. The society’s influence has waxed and waned. As the founding members and their revolutionary enthusiasms passed into history, lords and earls reasserted intellectually deadening class privileges. (Although women made important if surreptitious contributions in the 18th and 19th centuries and even earlier, the society did not elect its first two female fellows until 1945.) But always there was a hunger to find new discoveries, to record tides and temperatures, to discover new corners of a still wondrous world. Explorers like James Cook were ardent collectors, as were many American colonialists. Benjamin Franklin joined the society, and its archives hold many of his papers. Even the early Puritans, wary of royalty, yearned for entry. “Cotton Mather was desperate to get in,” Moore said. “He sent an account of a mastodon skeleton.”

Could this happen in Kansas? That Nurse spends the first 20 minutes of an interview about the Royal Society talking about the role of the United States is perhaps not surprising. He served a stretch as president of Rockefeller University in New York City. What happens to science in the United States, for good and ill, is too important to ignore. He wonders how it is that a nation that produces the wonders of Silicon Valley and great research centers in New York, Boston, Baltimore and Rochester, Minn., to name just a few, has large stretches where the theory of evolution is not taught. “You don’t hear these debates in New York City or indeed on either coast,” he says. “I wonder if American science would thrive if it were based in Kansas.” Still, he reminds himself that he is a foreigner looking in the window. “Americans tend to like extremes. It’s either ‘We are on top of the world!’ or ‘The world is falling apart!’” Some of those battles have started to jump the Atlantic with more vigor than in the

past. Not long ago, it was rare to hear a political challenge in Europe to the scientific consensus around global warming. Not anymore. Nurse is careful to emphasize that skepticism is the lifeblood of science; the verities of one age can become the superstitions of another. But he can’t hide his impatience with those who deny a strong human hand in global warming. You want to argue that the evidence points to only moderate warming? Brilliant; let’s examine the research. But to deny it altogether? The stakes are too high to play political games, he says. “They say: ‘Well, no one believed Galileo.’ As if what? That’s an arrogant argument. Galileo prevailed very rapidly, as did Newton, as did Einstein,” he says. “The denialists have completely lost it.” The leaders of the Royal Society conceive of themselves as a collective Cerberus, the mythical three-headed hound, guarding the doors of British science. “We are protected against creationism and the like by our national curriculum for now,” Nurse said. “But we should keep a very close eye on education. The American experience tells us that we must respond robustly to challenges.” More broadly, he doesn’t fret about U.S. dominance. That is just the way it is. Perhaps some cultural differences even accrue to the British side of the ledger. “The USA has a very strong work ethic, and you keep a very close eye to the cutting edge,” he says. “We are a bit lazier. We drink more. But sometimes the science we produce is rather quirkier and more innovative.” To walk the halls of the Royal Society is to feel the ancient excitements of science seep into your pores. But the society’s real challenge, Nurse says, is to point to the more magnificent unanswered questions that remain and so light a spark. He recalls, as a child in Norwich, running down a dirt road in his pajamas, looking at Sputnik 2 track a distant path in the predawn sky. “I feel utterly privileged to be a scientist at this society,” he says. “To be paid to think and talk about such questions? “Astonishing.”

In 1886, a group of Apache Indians led by Geronimo (also known as Goyathlay, “One Who Yawns”) surrendered to Gen. Nelson Miles at Skeleton Canyon in Arizona. In 1917, the American Expeditionary Forces in France suffered their first fatalities during World War I when a German plane attacked a British-run base hospital. In 1951, President Harry S.

U.S. condemns car bomb that killed 2 in Pakistan By Alex Rodriguez

By Cain Burdeau

Los Angeles Times

The Associated Press

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The suicide car bomb attack on a U.S. government vehicle in northwestern Pakistan on Monday that killed two Pakistanis was a “heinous act” against Americans working in a city perched on the edge of the country’s militant-infested tribal areas, U.S. officials said. The vehicle belonging to the U.S. Consulate in Peshawar was attacked as it traveled through University Town, an upscale Peshawar neighborhood where several international organizations maintain offices. No U.S. citizens or staff members of the consulate were killed, but two American staff members and two Pakistani nationals who work at the facility were injured, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. The identities of the two Pakistanis who were killed were not immediately released. An additional 21 people were injured in the attack, Pakistani authorities said. Roughly 220 pounds of explosives, including artillery shells, were packed into the suicide bomber’s car, said Shafqat Malik, inspector general of Peshawar’s bomb disposal squad. The massive impact of the blast engulfed the consulate vehicle in flames and left a gaping crater in the asphalt. Footage from Pakistani television showed the charred frame of the SUV against a brick wall by the side of the road. No one claimed immediate responsibility for the attack. Nuland called the attack a “heinous act” and said the U.S. was ready “to work with Pakistani authorities on a full investigation so that the perpetrators can be brought

NEW ORLEANS — Mitt Romney wasted no time after accepting the GOP presidential nomination in heading to Louisiana to see the damage from Hurricane Isaac, changing his schedule on the fly to get there the very next day. President Barack Obama also tweaked his travel plans to make sure he got there Monday, ahead of his own nominating convention. This for a Category 1 storm that killed seven and swamped low-lying areas of Louisiana and dumped more than a foot of rain on its way north — a disaster, to be sure, but one that will never rival the biggest to hit the Gulf Coast. In a region with a storied culture and a history of human suffering, natural and manmade catastrophes, and struggles with government ineptitude and indifference, it’s just another turn in front of the cameras as the perfect political backdrop. Call it the Katrina effect: Presidents, and would-be presidents, can’t afford to get panned like George W. Bush did in the days after Hurricane Katrina crippled New Orleans and the Mississippi and Alabama coasts in 2005, killing more than 1,800. “I dare say, before Katrina there’s no way that you would have the president and Romney here within days of one another in a storm of this relatively small magnitude — not to diminish the impact of it (Isaac),” said Robert Mann, the director of the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at Louisiana State University. For many of the people who call the Gulf Coast home, it doesn’t matter if it’s a storm that submerges the streets or a busted oil well spewing mil-

lions of gallon of crude: the political posturing doesn’t make them feel like relief is coming any faster. “We just want our lights on,” said Eddie Cooley, a 56-yearold chemical warehouse worker drenched in sweat as he worked on his truck’s engine in the Lower 9th Ward, the New Orleans neighborhood flooded to rooftops during Katrina. Over the weekend, parts of the neighborhood remained without electricity, days after Isaac passed. “We don’t care who gets elected and who doesn’t,” Cooley said. “We just want power.” But in St. John the Baptist Parish on Monday evening, Obama was greeted enthusiastically as he went house to house in a neighborhood of brick homes, shaking hands

with and listening to the stories of residents whose lives were affected by the storm. The neighborhood was no longer flooded, but front lawns were piled high with ruined bedding, insulation, furniture and toys. “How y’all doing?” he asked. “Better now!” replied one man. LaPlace resident Barbara Melton was also grateful for the president’s visit. “I think it’s awesome to have a president that cares and wants to come out and see what he can do,” Melton, 60, said as she swept mud and debris from her waterlogged home. “Having him here and seeing the situation really helps people be able to cope with what’s going on, what’s happened here.” As he thanked FEMA,

Isaac’s heavy rain brings brief respite for drought-stricken Midwest farmers By Jeannie Nuss and Jason Keyser The Associated Press

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Several days of rain have given farmers in the nation’s midsection a welcome break from irrigating and hauling water for livestock as they contend with the worst drought in the U.S. in decades. The remnants of Hurricane Isaac dropped several inches of rain on wide areas of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana and Missouri as the storm trudged north. Some spots got more than a half-foot of rain. For most farmers, the rain came too late to make a difference in their year. Corn farmers have been harvesting for weeks, and soybeans are far enough along that the rain won’t significantly improve their quality or growth. Some farmers had rushed to bring in crops before the storm, fearing strong winds or even flash flooding could destroy what they had managed to salvage from drought. In Arkansas, where farmers have been struggling with triple-digit temperatures and little rain, Robby Bevis, 35, saw the storm knock down several of his 150 acres of rice. “I hate to see any of it down, but that’s not as bad of percentage as what it could have

been,” he said. The 3 inches of rain that fell on Bevis’s fields between Scott and Lonoke also cut him a welcome break from watering his soybeans. He had been planning to irrigate before the remnants of Isaac sloshed through the region late last week. He figured the rain might

have saved him $10 or $15 an acre, although “the majority of the expense was throughout the summer.” In Illinois, Kenneth Metcalf said the storm put some water back in his well, relieving him of the burden of having to buy and haul in hundreds of gallons of water each day for his 160 head of cattle. But Metcalf, 75, said he doubts the break will last long as the storm’s last clouds burn off and higher temperatures return, baking the area east of Springfield where he also grows corn and soybeans. “I think we’ll be hauling water here again in a few days,” he said. Still, it lifted his spirits to see so much rain, 4 or 5 inches by his estimation. “I think everybody feels better,” he said, noting the rain was a start toward replenishing lakes and wells. Farther south, Mike Campbell said he got 3 inches of rain on his farm in Edwardsville, Ill., which is about 30 miles from St. Louis. He said it was too late for it to do anything for his corn, and he had worried the storm’s winds would destroy what little he had left. But the stalks were still standing Monday morning. “I was actually surprised at that because the stalk quality is just terrible,” said Campbell.

Obama nears deal on Egypt debt relief New York Times News Service WASHINGTON — Nearly 16 months after first pledging to help Egypt’s failing economy, the Obama administration is nearing an agreement with the country’s new government to relieve $1 billion of its debt as part of a U.S. and international assistance package intended to bolster its transition to democracy, administration officials said. The administration’s efforts,

delayed by Egypt’s political turmoil and by wariness in Washington about new leaders emerging from its first free elections, gained new urgency in recent weeks, even as the United States risks losing influence and investment opportunities to countries like China, which President Mohammed Morsi chose for his first official visit outside of the Middle East. In addition to the debt as-

sistance, the administration has thrown its support behind a $4.8 billion loan being negotiated between Egypt and the International Monetary Fund. Last week it dispatched the first of two official delegations to work out details of the proposed debt assistance, as well as $375 million in financing and loan guarantees for U.S. financiers who invest in Egypt and a $60 million investment fund for Egyptian businesses.

state and local authorities for their work Monday, Obama remarked that when disaster strikes, Americans are good at setting aside their differences to help each other. “Nobody’s a Democrat or a Republican, we’re all just Americans looking out for one another,” he said. Presidents have been coming to the Deep South for decades to score political points. Herbert Hoover rode his way to the White House following his heroics in response to the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927. In the aftermath of Hurricane Betsy in 1965, U.S. Sen. Russell Long urged President Lyndon Johnson to journey south, telling him that if he got down to New Orleans “by the end of the day, you’ll never lose another election in this state,” Mann said.

to justice.” Many of the suicide bombings and other terrorist acts in Peshawar have been carried out by the Pakistani Taliban, the domestic insurgent group that for years has been attacking security installations along with markets, mosques and other civilian targets. In recent years, the Pakistani Taliban has expanded its agenda to include Western targets, and was involved in providing training and logistical support for a U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent who botched an attempt to detonate a car bomb in New York’s Times Square in 2010. Despite the continued presence of al-Qaida-linked militants in northwestern Pakistan and the intense anti-American sentiments that pervade Pakistani society, terrorist attacks against American government entities in Pakistan remain relatively rare, largely because of extensive security measures the U.S. employs at its offices and compounds. The last attack on U.S. consulate vehicles in Peshawar occurred in May 2011, when a car bomb detonated by remote control targeted a convoy of two American armored vehicles in the University Town area, killing a Pakistani bystander. No American personnel were killed in the blast. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for that attack. In April, 2010, Taliban militants wearing suicide bomb vests and armed with automatic rifles and grenades carried out a commandostyle raid on the heavily fortified U.S. Consulate compound in Peshawar. The attackers never penetrated the facility, but five security personnel guarding the compound were killed.



At convention’s street festival, funnel cake and campaigning By Amy Gardner The Washington Post

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There were the electric cars, the climbing wall, the sustainable village and all the other things that Democrats like to show off on display at CarolinaFest, the street festival that kicked off the Democratic National Convention here Monday. And then there was the real purpose of the event, at least for President Barack Obama’s campaign. “You want a free bumper sticker?” a young Obama worker shouted to people passing the president’s campaign booth, standing three feet above them like a 21stcentury carnival barker. “Text 62262 and you can have one. Did you do it? Perfect! Here you go.” In the space of a few hours, organizers had passed out hundreds of bumper stickers, collecting just as many cellphone numbers and — they hope — new recruits who could help replicate the grassroots force that grew out of the convention in Denver four years ago. Others trolled the crowd, estimated at 30,000, with clipboards looking for would-be voters to register. And volunteers asked for signatures to support women’s initiatives and Obama’s health-care law. “There are a lot of volunteers passing by,” said Samantha Steiner, 27, a Charlotte resident and registered independent who is not sure who she will vote for in November. “I don’t necessarily identify with the Democratic Party, but the festival has allowed me to find ways to participate.” CarolinaFest was meant to be many things for the Democratic Party. It was a classic Labor Day street party, with water-ice stands, funnel cakes and bouncy slides. It was a public-relations parade intended to

portray Democrats as inclusive (it was free and open to the public), compassionate (it featured dozens of goodworks demonstrations) and fun (who doesn’t like a climbing wall?). The festival was interrupted twice during the day by short-lived but torrential downpours, and it was cut short by the threat of severe weather. James Taylor, the headline performer, was singing when organizers called it a night in the early evening. In some cases, the politics and the party were an odd mix. At one end of the festival, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer was spotted walking down the street in a suit and button-down shirt, taking in the scene. At the other end, organizers with the North Carolina AFL-CIO beckoned passers-by with a provocative offer: “Free hugs from union thugs!” “You ready for a hug?” Lora Banner, a Teamsters member and United Parcel Service worker from nearby Gaston County in a blonde up-do, asked one man who had strayed closer to the tent. “Come on over here!” She put her arms around him. Even the most lighthearted features of the festival carried a political, or at least cultural, message: A “Peace In, Peace Out” yoga booth. A “Youth Soccer for Social Change” game under way in a parking lot. “Naturals for Obama,” a support group of black women who don’t straighten their hair. Looming over all of that was a message from the Charlotte Diocese — a banner across the exterior wall of St. Peter’s Catholic Church reading: “Protect the Unborn, defend marriage, safeguard religious liberty.”

Walking a fine political line “What she brings to her convention speech is not just her role as the wife of the candidate, the partisan, the spokesman, but also almost a certain rational objectivity and this larger-than-life charismatic public personality,” Anthony said. “She has a real credibility, and she comes to that podium with those factors intact. Whether the campaign will seek to maximize that, we’ll have to see.”

By Krissah Thompson The Washington Post

Michelle Obama comes to the 2012 Democratic National Convention with a delicate task: helping her husband’s campaign reach out to women, who are a vital part of his coalition, without veering too far into an increasingly polarized battle over women’s issues. The first lady, who is scheduled to speak tonight, has been circumspect about what liberals call the Republican “war on women.” She did not participate in the Obama campaign’s “Romney/Ryan: Wrong for Women” tour last week, which condemned the Republican ticket’s positions on abortion. When she appeared on David Letterman’s show Wednesday as a bit of counter-programming to the GOP convention, she responded to a question about Republican Rep. Todd Akin — the Missouri Senate candidate who said that women who are raped are unlikely to get pregnant — by allowing that “dumb guys” say “dumb things.” But that was it.

A popular figure As she prepares for the convention, Michelle Obama is one of the most popular political figures in the country, viewed favorably by nearly seven in 10 Americans. That means she can sell her husband, who is considerably less popular, rather than having to sell herself, as she did four years ago, when she was the less liked of the two. But she must be careful to advocate for him without appearing too partisan. The 2008 convention “was very much about introducing her and in many ways the president to the country through an unfiltered lens,” said Stephanie Cutter, deputy manager of the Obama campaign. “This convention is more about just reminding people about the values and vision that drive the president every day and some of the decisions that have been made over the last four years that have moved us forward.” But refreshing the public’s memory of the man behind the presidency is a more challenging task than the one Obama faced last time, when she acknowledged Barack Obama’s “funny name” while vouching for his values. In her convention speech tonight, advisers said, she will try to speak to her husband’s disaffected supporters, giving them, as she says on the campaign trail, “the chance to see up close and personal what being president looks like ... the problems with no easy solutions, the judgment calls where the stakes are so high and there is no margin for error.” She will have to find new anecdotes that give insight into the president’s character to reach those people — particularly women, said Jennifer

Appealing at women

Jae C. Hong / The Associated Press

First lady Michelle Obama appears on stage Monday with actor Kal Penn during filming of a campaign video at the Democratic National Convention inside Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C.

Lawless, director of American University’s Women and Politics Institute. “The fact that she is pretty honest about him and calls attention to some of his flaws and makes him seem like a real person is appealing,” Lawless said. At the same time, she will be tasked with bringing attention to Barack Obama the family man, trotting out on stage with perfectly styled first daughters Sasha, 11, and Malia, 14.

Stepping carefully In the campaign speech the first lady gives as she rallies supporters across the country, she talks about the “brilliant” women sitting on the Supreme Court because of her husband, about his administration’s support for equal pay for women in the workplace, and about how “Barack Obama believes women should be able to make our own choices about our health care.” At a moment when women’s reproductive health has unexpectedly become one of the highest-profile issues of the campaign, and when women’s votes are expected to be critical to deciding the tight race, Michelle Obama will have to step gingerly, discussing the issue without seeming overly partisan. The tougher talk about abortion rights has come from the president himself, who said recently that “we shouldn’t have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making health-care decisions on behalf of women.” Michelle Obama’s appeal to voters has been shaped more by television interviews, magazine covers and her bestselling gardening book, “American Grown.” During the 2008 campaign, her favorability ratings took a hit when she said that “for the first time” in her adult life, she was proud of her country. Conservatives repeatedly brought up the statement and called her unpatriotic. But since moving into

the White House and adopting her role as mom in chief, her popularity has soared. “The good news is her likability factor is high, so she doesn’t have to sell herself as a likable good, person. She can sell the idea of ‘why you need to re-elect my husband,’” said Elizabeth Mehren, a professor of journalism at Boston University who has written extensively about first ladies. “This is her moment to step forward and talk about the fundamental concerns that working women have with the economy.” Obama has not directly tackled such concerns. Instead, she recently acted as “guest editor” of iVillage. com, a Web site that caters to women. In an extensive interview there, the first lady kicked off her shoes and curled her bare feet up on the couch in her East Wing office. She gave tips for healthy eating, discussed the ways she talks to her daughters about body image and talked about how her husband quit smoking. “His ability to ultimately kick the habit was because of the girls, because they’re at the age now where you can’t hide,” Obama told iVillage. “I think that he didn’t want to look his girls in the eye and tell them that they shouldn’t do something that he was still doing.”

Less popular with GOP Obama is less well-liked by Republicans. Only 38 percent of them give her a favorable rating, and conservative commentators have accused her of advocating a “nanny state” in her push for healthier school lunches. But the approach has made Obama a public figure in her own right, with “a popularity that transcends partisanship to a certain degree,” said Carl Sferrazza Anthony, a historian who studies first ladies and presidential families.


Big convention protests fail to materialize By David Siders and Torey Van Oot The Sacramento Bee

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It was an expectant time for protesters ahead of the Democratic and Republican national conventions, with the Occupy movement not quite one year old and uprisings in the Middle East still reverberating. In December, Time magazine named “The Protester” its person of the year, and thousands of people were expected to converge on the parties’ quadrennial conventions. But first outside the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., then here this week before the Democrats convened, demonstrations fizzled. The largest protest so far, a march through sweltering heat in Charlotte on Sunday, involved perhaps 800 people, officials said. Participants offered any number of explanations for their tiny number: The threat of Hurricane Isaac in Tampa, the dearth of hotel rooms in Charlotte, the intimidating police presence in both cities and the lack of money to travel. For the most part, these were challenges delegates, media

and other convention-goers overcame, and the protesters’ inability to do so suggested a logistical shortcoming. While able to fill city squares and campus commons in their own cities, they have failed to recreate that turnout on the media-rich stages of this year’s national conventions. “Having sort of a structureless, leaderless organization makes that difficult,” said Frank Gilliam, a professor of political science and public policy at University of California, Los Angeles, and dean of the university’s Luskin School of Public Affairs. “It’s what many of us argued from the beginning, that while we certainly understood sort of the concept of the people as our leaders and flat organizations, we know two things about that: No. 1, they’re hard to sustain, and two, they’re hard to remobilize.” In Tampa, police reported making only two arrests last week. Events were so peaceful — and so small — that officers shared water and sandwiches with the few protesters they encountered. In Charlotte, police said they arrested a woman Sun-

day carrying a knife and a man they accused of disorderly conduct, assault on an officer and resisting arrest. They reported no other arrests as of late Monday afternoon. The quietness is in contrast to some previous conventions. Hundreds of people were arrested in sometimes-violent clashes with police at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota four years ago. Tom Hayden, the former California lawmaker and famous activist involved in protests outside the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968, said Monday that sizable protests in Charlotte may still materialize. But among activists, he said, “There are differences of opinion about whether to pass on the conventions, or put energy into them.” Most would-be protesters are left-leaning, Hayden said, and many may be reluctant to demonstrate against President Barack Obama in a close election year. “A lot of people would think it’s more relevant to win North Carolina in November,” he said, “than to demonstrate in September.”

Protesters from Code Pink were among the most active demonstrators, both in Tampa and in Charlotte, protesting the influence of Wall Street and America’s involvement in wars abroad, among other causes. They wore vagina suits outside one event and carried signs that said, “Read my lips: End war on women.” Representatives of the group inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum shouted during primetime remarks by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and vice presidential pick Paul Ryan, though they were drowned out by the crowd and removed by security. “This is one of the most sparsely attended and the most heavily militarized I have ever seen,” said Ann Wright, who has been protesting at conventions with Code Pink and other groups since 2004. “Tragically, a lot of people are saying, ‘You know, it really doesn’t matter what we do, the political parties aren’t much different from each other and they’re not listening really to what the people want. So a lot of people are very, very discouraged. That’s why we’ve had a not very big turnout.”



Obama’s appeal seems aimed squarely at women — mothers in particular — who will be key decision-makers in this election. The Romney campaign acknowledged the importance of moms last week as well, with Ann Romney using her remarks at the Republican National Convention to talk about love and give a shout-out to “the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together.” On Wednesday, while Republicans were making their case in Tampa, the first lady used part of her time on Letterman’s show to talk about parenting. The interview kicked off with Obama and Letterman chatting about summer sleep-away camp and healthier school-lunch standards. Pizza “is going to be served on a whole-wheat crust” with strips of green peppers or carrots on the side, she said. She stuck to the approach that Obama campaign aides have called “relentlessly positive.” In response to Letterman’s question about whether the close race is stressing out her husband, she said: “Barack is so — the levelheadedness that you see is real. He doesn’t bring that energy home.” Camille Johnston, the first lady’s former communications director, said the DNC speech will show Obama’s fun-loving personality while making the case for her husband’s administration. “The speech that she will give will be something that she has crafted in her own voice and with her own attention to detail and with her own style,” Johnston said. “She prepares diligently for important moments.” On Letterman’s show, the first lady said her convention speech will be serious, adding that she will not be cracking any jokes. “I’m still taking it in,” she said of her prepared remarks. “So over the next couple of days, I’ll just get the words and understand. ... “You know, it’s feeling what I’m saying,” Obama said, closing her eyes, “not just learning the words.”

Convention Continued from A1 He is not just another old presidential war horse being trotted out for nostalgia or a staged show of unity. When Obama called in late July to say he would be grateful if his Democratic predecessor would give the speech placing his name in nomination, something that no former commander in chief has done before, it was an acknowledgment of how much the sitting president needs the former president. And Clinton, who loves to be needed as much as he needs to be loved, responded with an enthusiasm and diligence that served as yet another signal to people close to both men that an old wound has for the most part been healed. “He is honored that Obama asked him to do it,” said Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman. In late August, McAuliffe spent a few days with the Clintons at a beach house in East Hampton, N.Y., and said his close friend seemed obsessed with the convention assignment, continually bringing up books and quotes and ideas he was sifting through. “This speech is very important to him. He has taken the burden and put it on his shoulders.”

Clinton writes own speech The convention speech, which people around Clinton say he is largely writing himself, is part of a full-scale Bill Clinton offensive that includes a series of political ads — now playing in key swing states — that feature the former president offering snippets of the themes he will expand on on Wednesday. Obama’s team views this in the most positive light, noting Clinton’s talents and soaring popularity, but history shows the occasional dangers. In late May, as the Obama campaign was pounding away at GOP challenger Mitt Romney’s role at Bain Capital, Clinton said of the private-equity firm, “I don’t think we ought to get into a position where we say this is bad work. This is good work.” If he was all too public in his critique, it was classic Clinton as campaign manager, sending the message to the Obama team that there are ways to go after working-class voters without alienating the financial industry, a subtlety he mastered during his heyday. The Clinton-Obama divide four years ago was political and personal. It began during the intense and at times nasty primary campaign between Obama and Hillary Clinton as intimations of racism were thrown back and forth, a sure sign of competitive overreaching involving two men (the former president was asserting himself in his wife’s campaign at that point) with strong though different bona fides on matters of race — Clinton so empathetic that he was once called the first black president; Obama on his way to becoming the real first black president. That campaign-season animosity was accentuated by diametrically disparate individual styles. Presidents 42 and 44, separated in age by 15 years on opposite ends of the baby-boom generation, have been called matter and anti-matter, fire and ice, extrovert and introvert.

Stylistic opposites Clinton could spend five minutes in a Dunkin’ Donuts in Concord, N.H., and meet a stranger whose face and name and life story he could still recall two decades later. Obama spent four introspective years in New York without making a single lasting friend. Obama seems content to relax late at night alone in the White House residence watching ESPN’s SportsCenter. Clinton doesn’t like to be alone and has been known to call a pal so that they can watch a televised basketball game together hundreds of miles apart while on the telephone. Man, you see that move? Clinton, even though once considered a boy wonder, rose the slow, traditional way, demonstrating a lifelong love of politics. He revealed his ambitions early, running for every office he could at Hot Springs High School in Arkansas until his principal declared it enough and told him he could not run for class president. He ran for secretary instead — and lost to a girlfriend. He was so bothered by that loss

that he temporarily stopped talking to her. Not many things can bring Clinton to silence. The high school trend continued in college, and then into electoral politics. He took his first office as attorney general of Arkansas at age 28, reaching the governorship two years later and serving 12 years in that job, building a national reputation along the way, before running for president in 1992. Obama in high school played basketball, smoked some pot and showed no political inclinations whatsoever. He ran for no offices then or in college at Occidental and Columbia, and was 35 years old when he entered the Illinois state Senate. Eight years in Springfield and two as a U.S. senator, and suddenly he was running for president. Their differences of style are far less important than matters of substance, although Clinton’s freewheeling exuberance has occasionally troubled the cautious Obama, and Obama’s seeming insularity at times has befuddled Clinton, friends of both men say. In a sense, they start and end in similar places. On the biography side, they came from remote places (southwest Arkansas and Hawaii), rose from family dysfunction, grew up without knowing their biological fathers, and made their own way to political heights against the odds. On the political side, on most of the big issues, there is little or no space between them as pragmatic liberals, although Clinton was able to craft a clearer ideological definition as a proponent of a new Democratic “third way.” One former Clinton adviser, assessing the former president’s perspective on Obama, said, “I sense he thinks that Obama gets all the hard stuff right, but doesn’t do the easy stuff at all. And it mystifies him.” Clinton, for instance, was wowed by how Obama put together a successful health-care package, something the former president failed at, yet was confounded by Obama’s inability to go around the country and sell it.

Evolving relationship The relationship between Clinton and Obama has evolved in stages. The earliest step toward reconciliation might be the most telling: when Obama, as presidentelect, asked Hillary Clinton to serve as secretary of state. She needed persuading, and in this case Obama and Bill Clinton were co-conspirators, both pushing the idea that she should take the job. If there were political calculations involved on either side, the simple fact that Hillary Clinton joined the Obama administration changed the dynamics; that she proved to be indefatigable and adept as Madam Secretary at once heartened her husband and deepened the appreciation of the president. After two years during which they rarely spoke, the first public sign that Bill and Barack were teaming up on domestic policy issues came shortly after the 2010 midterm elections that proved disastrous for the Democrats, who lost control of the House and barely kept the Senate. Obama found himself making deals with House Republicans even before they took over, agreeing to some tax cuts in exchange for an extension of unemployment insurance. There was always intermingling, never a clean divide between Clinton people and Obama people, and enough former Clinton aides who went on to work for Obama. A delegation of Obama campaign advisers and pollsters made a pilgrimage to Clinton’s Harlem headquarters to get his take on the campaign. They brought their polling data and computer models and laid out the information for him on Nov. 11, describing what they were learning about the voters, all the intimate details of what they intended to do, and asked for his advice. He told them to forget about attacking Romney as a flipflopper. That would backfire, he warned, and give comfort to swing voters who wanted to dump Obama. “They treated him like the political genius that he is, and he loved that,” one associate said. “This was great. You reach out to him and he becomes invested in the cause.”

OSU Continued from A1 Nonetheless, there are challenges, including increased traffic and securing property for the campus. Johnson said the branch campus will soon issue a request for proposals for a planner who will produce more details on the types and amounts of space — classrooms, offices, housing — the campus would require. The campus will also issue a request for proposals for a real estate agent to represent it in the search for properties in the area. About one year ago, Johnson and Jon Skidmore, then the Bend business advocate, met at Juniper Ridge for a tour and to discuss what it would take to build a university there on the timeline OSU-Cascades planned. “It was going to be very expensive,” Johnson said. “(Skidmore) talked about the millions of dollars we would have to put up for a sewer extender. There was some talk about having to put in a power station. And then there’s the Cooley Road intersection (with U.S. Highway 97) and if we were talking about getting 3,000 to 5,000 students, we would be required to get an additional intersection.” All told, OSU-Cascades might have faced $10 million to $20 million in infrastructure costs before it even began building the new campus, Johnson said. In southwest Bend, the university can spend most of its money to purchase and renovate buildings, which is cheaper than building new structures, Johnson said. Another top consideration for campus officials was the role of the campus location in attracting students. A site near the Deschutes River, parks and downtown Bend would appeal to many people, Johnson said. “I think it would be a pretty

Organic Continued from A1 Conventional fruits and vegetables did have more pesticide residue, but the levels were almost always under the allowed safety limits, the scientists said. The Environmental Protection Agency sets the limits at levels it says do not harm humans. “When we began this project, we thought that there would likely be some findings that would support the superiority of organics over conventional food,” said Dr. Dena Bravata, a senior affiliate with Stanford’s Center for Health Policy and the senior author of the paper, which appears in today’s issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine. “I think we were definitely surprised.” The conclusions will almost certainly fuel the debate over whether organic foods are a smart choice for healthier living or a marketing tool that gulls people into overpaying. The organic produce market has grown quickly, up 12 percent, to $12.4 billion, last year, according to the Organic Trade Association. Organic meat has a smaller share of the market, at $538 million last year, the trade group said. The production of organic food is governed by a raft of regulations that generally prohibit the use of synthetic pesticides, hormones and additives. The findings seem unlikely to sway many fans of organic food. Advocates for organic farming said the Stanford researchers

easy sell to them to say, ‘Wow, I’d like to go to school there for four years,’” Johnson said. The proximity to downtown Bend and established areas of the city would make this a more sustainable location, she said. Bend Mayor Jeff Eager called branch officials’ choice of a location in southwest Bend “logical.” “One of the things both the university and the city would like to see come out of this is some kinds of businesses locating around there that are related to the university,” Eager said. “Whether it’s in Juniper Ridge or somewhere else in town, I’m not terribly concerned ... I’m sure we’ll find other uses for that property up there.” Johnson and city officials said hurdles to developing the campus include the need for more parking, upgrading streets to handle more traffic, zoning limitations and the need for OSU-Cascades to secure property. While the current campus vision includes a parking structure, Johnson said universities often charge for parking and the idea is not to encourage students to bring more cars to the area. “In some ways, you don’t want to make it too easy to park your car,” Johnson said. City Councilor Jim Clinton said traffic would increase with a university in the area. Students and faculty come and go during nights and weekends, as well as daytime hours, so traffic would be higher than it is for the office park, Clinton said. Redeveloped office buildings also might not be as aesthetically pleasing as a university built from scratch. “I think it has some challenges and disadvantages compared to building a new campus,” Clinton said. “The buildings will essentially be the same ... it will look like an office park instead of a university.” Skidmore, who is now the assistant city manager for

failed to appreciate the differences they did find between the two types of food — differences that validated the reasons people usually cite for buying organic. Organic produce, as expected, was much less likely to retain traces of pesticides. Organic chicken and pork were less likely to be contaminated by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. “Those are the big motivators for the organic consumer,” said Christine Bushway, executive director of the trade association. The study also found that organic milk contained more omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered beneficial for the heart. “We feel organic food is living up to its promise,” said Sonya Lunder, a senior analyst with the Environmental Working Group, which publishes lists highlighting the fruits and vegetables with the lowest and highest amounts of pesticide residues. The Stanford researchers said that by providing an objective review of the current science of organic foods, their goal was to allow people to make informed choices. In the study — known as a meta-analysis, in which previous findings are aggregated but no new laboratory work is conducted — researchers combined data from 237 studies, examining a wide variety of fruits, vegetables and meats. For four years, they performed statistical analyses looking for signs of health benefits from adding organic foods to the diet. The researchers did not use any outside financing for their research. “I really wanted us to have no perception of bias,” Bravata said.

Bend, said one way to ease the way for development of a university in the industrial and office park area might be a special land-use zone. “There will be traffic impacts and things but if you think of it, usually a university has a more multi-modal impact, a lot of kids on bikes, buses, walking,” Skidmore said. It might help for the city to reexamine street standards in the area, to determine whether they could be relaxed because many people in the area would not be driving cars. “From a land-use perspective, there are some issues and concerns, but nothing is insurmountable,” Skidmore said. “Personally, I think it would be a hell of an addition to the community.” Johnson said she is concerned about the nonbinding nature of an agreement between OSU-Cascades and the Bend Park & Recreation District to explore developing 11 acres the park district purchased last year, the former Mt. Bachelor Park and Ride lot at Southwest Simpson Avenue and Columbia Street. “We would prefer to have something more binding, especially as a lot of interest groups have expressed interest to have things on those 11 acres,” Johnson said. Ideas that have been discussed include an ice skating rink, a skatepark and a fitness facility. If OSU-Cascades’ vision moves ahead, it could benefit property owners in the area who want to sell their land. Johnson said the uncertainty of where the university would purchase land has also raised concerns for some business owners who worry they might be pushed out. A commercial real estate company and property management company were among contributors to branch campus fundraisers earlier this year. Compass Commercial Real Estate Services and Fratzke Property

One finding of the study was that organic produce, overall, contained higher levels of phosphorus than conventional produce. But because almost everyone gets adequate phosphorus from a wide variety of foods, they said, the higher levels in the organic produce is unlikely to confer any health benefit. The organic produce also contained more compounds known as phenols, believed to help prevent cancer, than conventional produce. While the difference was statistically significant, the size of the difference varied widely from study to study, and the data was based on the testing of small numbers of samples. “I interpret that result with caution,” Bravata said. Other variables, like ripeness, had a greater influence on nutrient content. Thus, a lush peach grown with the use of pesticides could easily contain more vitamins than an unripe organic one. The study’s conclusions about pesticides did seem likely to please organic food


Management each donated $25,000 to the university campaign to raise money for the new campus. “Between the two of them, they represent a lot of the property here,” Johnson said. However, Johnson said the state university cannot pay more than the fair market value for a property. “People might think they’re going to make a killing on us,” Johnson said. “We’re getting taxpayer dollars and we have to prove we’re paying fair market value.” City officials said they are not ready to give up on plans for a four-year university at Juniper Ridge. The city sank a lot of money into planning the development, which is supposed to include not only a university, but also industrial businesses, homes, commercial and retail space and a performing arts center. In 2008, city councilors agreed to pay the former master developers of the 1,500-acre Juniper Ridge project $2.52 million in a settlement that gave the city full ownership of the project’s master plan and prevented the developers from suing the city. Clinton, who supported including a university during planning for Juniper Ridge, said there is enough infrastructure there to support a small research facility. “I, and I think the city, have not given up the plans to have a university as the heart of Juniper Ridge,” Clinton said. “I think the city would be making an extremely serious mistake if it gave up on that vision.” Johnson said Juniper Ridge would be a good location for future OSU-Cascades research and graduate studies buildings. “A lot of universities have research parks that are not adjacent to their campus,” Johnson said. — Reporter: 541-617-7829,

customers. Overall, the Stanford researchers concluded that 38 percent of conventional produce tested in the studies contained detectable residues, compared with 7 percent for the organic produce. (Even produce grown organically can be tainted by pesticides wafting over from a neighboring field or during processing and transport.) They also noted a couple of studies that showed that children who ate organic produce had fewer pesticide fragments in their urine. The scientists sidestepped the debate over whether the current limits are too high. “Some of my patients take solace in knowing that the pesticide levels are below safety thresholds,” Bravata said. “Others have questioned whether these standards are sufficiently rigorous.”

Court Continued from A1 In remarks at a conference of lawyers specializing in federal death penalty work at a hotel here last month, Bickell provided a rare inside look at the Supreme Court’s oversight of the machinery of death in the United States. It starts with a weekly update. “Every Monday morning,” Bickell said, “I put out a list to the court of all the executions that are scheduled in the country in the next six or seven weeks, and that gets distributed to all of the justices.” The Supreme Court clerk’s office is famously helpful to lawyers who have questions about the court’s rules and procedures, but in capital cases it goes further. “As the date approaches,” Bickell said, referring to impending executions, “I will be in touch with the attorney general’s office. I will be in touch with you, if you are representing the inmate, and with the lower courts, trying to figure out what is pending below and what is likely to make its way up to the Supreme Court. “Once we make contact about 10 days or two weeks before the scheduled execution, I will start asking you to forward me everything that you file in the lower courts. Once you forward it to me, I forward it on to the law clerks and to the justices so that they can begin reviewing the case.”

Up to speed By the time Balentine’s stay application reached the court, then, the justices were up to speed on the issues presented in his case, which concerned how claims of incompetent legal work at a capital trial should be presented. Under the Supreme Court’s rules, Balentine’s plea that his execution be stayed was addressed to Justice Antonin Scalia, who oversees the 5th Circuit, which covers Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. But individual justices almost never rule by themselves on requests to halt executions. “I would say 99.9 percent of the time the circuit justice is going to refer the application to the full court, and all nine justices are going to act on the application,” Bickell said. He added that the court always makes sure it can rule on such applications in time for its decision to matter, even in states not inclined to wait for word from the justices. “The court won’t always act on it by 7 o’clock,” he said. That hour is important because it is when Texas executes people, Eastern time. The state has executed seven inmates this year. “If we’re getting to the point where we’re short on time — it’s 6:30 or 6:15 for a scheduled 7 o’clock execution — I will call my contact” at the state attorney general’s office to see “whether they’re going to go forward with the execution while the case is pending or if they’re going to hold off and wait,” Bickell said. If the state will not wait, the court will give itself time to think and to vote. That responsibility again falls to the justice in charge of the judicial circuit. “If we’re told they’re going to go forward with it and they’re not going to wait,” Bickell said, “the practice of the court recently — this has happened with Justice Thomas a few times last term — is the justice will issue a temporary interim stay.” Justice Clarence Thomas oversees the 11th Circuit, which covers Alabama, Florida and Georgia. Applications involving more mundane matters are also submitted to individual justices. The most common are requests for extra time to file briefs and other papers.

Different approach Bickell said the justices take very different approaches to granting them. Justice Elena Kagan extended the deadline every time she was asked last term, Bickell said, and Chief Justice John

Find It All Online

Roberts and Justices Thomas, Samuel Alito and Sonia Sotomayor did so more than 90 percent of the time. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Anthony Kennedy granted extensions about three-quarters of the time. Bickell did not say how liberal Justice Stephen Breyer is on this score, but he said Scalia is strict. “Anyone want to take a guess?” Bickell asked. “Four percent,” he said, and there were groans from the assembled lawyers. “Doesn’t happen very often, so keep that in mind,” Bickell said. “These are capital cases included.”

Center Continued from A1 “The community did not just want a building that you stop by,” she said. The Forest Service changed the plan to include parking spaces for nearby trails and is looking to erect a building that may host events and meetings rather than simply serve as a place to pick up permits, maps and information. In response, Russell said, her group and others dropped the appeal. As part of its resurfacing of Cascade Lakes Highway, the Oregon Department of

Transportation this summer put in an underpass to allow pedestrians and bikers to pass under the highway to the welcome center’s planned location, about six miles southwest of Bend just past the Seventh Mountain Resort. Funding for the welcome center project is chiefly coming from a scenic byways grant, Tinderholt said. The Federal Highway Administration grant is for $1.3 million and the Forest Service also has $300,000 allocated for the project, bringing the total to $1.6 million. The amount of money being spent on the welcome

center underscores why it should be more than a place where visitors stop for 15 minutes on their way to the woods, Russell said. “If you are making this kind of investment, let’s maximize the way you are going to use it,” she said. Last month the Federal Highway Administration awarded a separate $1 million grant to the Deschutes National Forest to pave a bike path from Bend to the welcome center. While the appeal is over, the plan for the welcome center still has its critics, including Scott Silver of Wild Wilderness.

The Bend-based nonprofit is opposed to the commercialization and privatization of recreation on public land. Rather than a way to serve visitors, Silver sees the welcome center as a step in the process of requiring more permits for people going into the forest. “It’s going to be a tollgate to the wilderness,” he said. Tinderholt said the Deschutes National Forest doesn’t have plans to require any more permits. But Silver is skeptical and argues that the money would be better spent elsewhere. — Reporter: 541-617-7812,

‘DogTown’ • Obeying rules is key at off-leash parks in Bend, aka the dog-friendliest town in America By Tom Olsen • For The Bulletin


end was recently named 2012 DogTown USA by Dog Fancy magazine, besting well-known canine-friendly competitors including Annapolis, Md., Alexandra, Va., and Seattle, Wash. In addition to all of the dog-friendly activities and the sheer number of dogs in Bend — there are 27,000 dogs here, according to Dog Fancy, about one for every four people — the award also noted Bend’s many offleash dog parks recently developed and maintained by the Bend Park & Recreation District. Seven off-leash dog parks have been opened since 2007, and Jan Taylor, community relations manager for the park district, says though each is unique, the rules for dogs and

their owners are the same. The rules begin with the animal control ordinances of Deschutes County and the city of Bend. Off-leash urban dog parks started springing up across the country after the millennium, according to Taylor. The park district responded to the trend by gathering community input — particularly from Bend’s nonprofit dog advocate, DogPAC — as well as information from other cities that had already developed them. “We wanted to see what was working and what wasn’t,” Taylor said, and the team used that input to design the parks and develop their rules. Today, she said, those rules help make the off-leash experience positive for everyone.

Do get your dog licensed.

Do report aggressive dogs.

All dogs with permanent canine teeth or dogs 6 months and older must be licensed, according to Deschutes County regulations. Dog licenses are available from the Humane Society of Central Oregon or the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office at a cost of $12 a year for spayed or neutered pets and $27 a year for those kept intact. The fine for not doing so can be as high as $360 in Bend. No license will be granted unless the dog has a current rabies vaccination.

Aggressive dogs must be removed from a park immediately, Taylor said, to prevent injury to other dogs, adults or children. If an irresponsible owner doesn’t remove their offensive animal, others in the park should call the sheriff’s incident report line at 541-693-6911 and request that a deputy resolve the problem. Fortunately, there are fewer than 10 such calls a year, she said. Understanding canine pack behavior is key to minimizing aggressive behavior in a dog, Taylor explained, and several posted rules in the parks reflect that philosophy.

Meet Natasha, a 3-month-old kitten in need of a very special home. Her feline family was abandoned in the country, but are now safe and looking for new forever homes. If you would like to visit Natasha, or any other pet available for adoption through the Cat Rescue, Adoption and Foster Team, contact the organization at 541-389-8420 or info@, or visit

Upon entering the park, owners should let their dogs off-leash because restrained canines feel vulnerable when other dogs can move freely around them.

Awbrey Reservoir

Don’t bring dog bullies. Dog bullies are a significant park problem, said Taylor. Examples of unacceptable canine behavior include unprovoked threats or attacks on other dogs or people, growling, baring teeth and snapping, as well as actually biting; and repetitive bumping, body slamming, pinning or mounting other dogs.

Dogs anywhere in Deschutes County must always be under the control of their owners, and in Bend, all dogs — except police and service dogs — must be on a leash unless they are in a designated off-leash dog park.

Initial rabies vaccinations are good for one year and boosters are required every three years. The shots are available from most local veterinarians and pet stores, according to the Humane Society of Central Oregon. The cost can be less than $18.

Do keep walking. Owners should keep walking with their dogs, especially when other canines`are present, to give their pets the opportunity to voluntarily move away from a threatening encounter.

Don’t bring unsocialized dogs. All dogs should be socialized to people and other dogs before their owners take them to the parks, said Taylor.

Do clean up your dog’s mess. The other major problem in the off-leash areas is owners not scooping poop, Taylor continued. See Park / B6

Popular authors to visit Bend By Alandra Johnson The Bulletin

Best-selling author Mitch Albom is headed to Bend on Sept. 15, thanks to a brand-new series called Author! Author! from the Deschutes Public Library Foundation. Albom, author of “Tuesdays with Morrie” and “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” among other books, is the Albom first of four high-profile authors to visit the area during the next year — one will Egan arrive each quarter (see “If you go”). This series is something new for the library, in Greenblatt that it is intended to raise money for Deschutes County libraries. The goal Larson is to raise $150,000 to help make up for lost property tax revenue, which led to the libraries cutting hours, eliminating the bookmobile and not hiring new staff, according to Chantal Strobel, community relations manager for the library system. Strobel hopes these events will provide great literary experiences for community members. “We want to bring people together around works of esteemed authors and talk about books together,” said Strobel. She is excited for people to experience “world-class, award-winning authors.” Albom will discuss his new novel, “The Time Keeper,” during his appearance at the Bend High School auditorium. Strobel said that book just arrived at libraries last week. Soon local library patrons will see large displays featuring the book. The new novel focuses on the importance and true meaning of time. In choosing authors for Author! Author!, Strobel said it was important to find writers who would resonate with people in Deschutes County. She believes Albom fits the bill. She calls him very inspirational and says he is the kind of author who appeals to a broad audience, from teenagers to seniors. Albom will speak primarily about his latest book, but during a booksigning portion of the program, individuals are welcome to talk with him about his other work or ask questions. Albom will also participate in a private reception after the event. See Authors / B6

TLC’s new pint-size star is a dynamo with ‘go-go’ TV SPOTLIGHT “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo� 10 p.m. Wednesdays, TLC By Yvonne Villarreal Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — It isn’t easy to make SallyAnn Salsano jealous. But the creator of MTV’s “Jersey Shore� — who brought us Snooki, the Situation and Pauly D — says that envy was her first response when she saw the brandnew TLC reality series “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.� “I was like, ‘... Why aren’t I doing that show?’� Salsano lamented. Alana Thompson, better known to the universe as Honey Boo Boo, became a frilly sensation following a breakout stint on the TLC’s “Toddlers & Tiaras� in January. Honey Boo Boo’s over-thetop personality, stomach-talking talents and lively stage performance — energized by “gogo juice,� a blend of Mountain Dew and Red Bull — made her an overnight star. So naturally, the spirited beauty pageant contestant landed her own spinoff show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,� which reached a season high in its third week with 2.3 million viewers last Wednesday — positioning it as one of the network’s highest-rated shows while turning the pint-sized star, who turned 7 on Tuesday, and her family into a polarizing pop-culture phenomenon. A Google search of “Honey Boo Boo� yields more than 65 million results — including YouTube parodies, GIFs (a graphic image on a website that moves), spoof Twitter pages for her former pet pig

Glitzy, a “Redneckipedia� to decipher Honey Boo Boo’s lexicon and, for the more literary-inclined, poems about the family. “Before the ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ episode, I saw a lot of people talking about (Alana) online,� said her mother — and reality star in her own right — June Shannon via email. “Then the show aired and everything went viral. At that point, everyone seemed to know who she was — from Georgia to New York to L.A. ... even big-time celebrities like Mario Lopez.� Picking up where “Toddlers & Tiaras� left off, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo� has kept people talking. But that doesn’t mean all the chatter has been good. USA Today said the show — which features bits like Glitzy the pig, the family pet, “oooohing himself� on the kitchen table — is “either the end of civilization as we know it, or a loving picture of joyous redneck family values.� Clearly some of the interest is derived from laughing at the family’s peculiar habits. But Shannon says, “I’ve never felt like I was at the butt of a joke because I am always able to laugh at myself.� Howard Lee, TLC’s senior vice president of production and development, said the decision to give the young girl and her family their own show was a “no-brainer.� “Just with her single appearance on ‘Toddlers & Tiaras,’ we saw that everybody was just so captivated by this little girl’s personality — and by her mom, June, too,� Lee said. “People were asking about them, they wanted to see more about them. There was just a hunger from our audience.�

A  & A  

Gay man pressured to date wants co-workers to back off Dear Abby: I am a 29-yearold gay man. In my community, coming out at work isn’t an option. I really like my job and want to keep it. However, a female colleague is not only trying to persuade me that the two of us would make a good pair, but she has gotten all of our co-workers involved. I’m constantly pressured by my supervisor to “just go out with her and give her a chance.� I have already told everyone, including her, that I’m not interested in mixing my personal life with my professional one, and I want to come to work only to work — not upgrade my marital status. However, because of my unwillingness to do what they “recommend,� the pressure from everyone has gotten worse. I dread coming to the office. Would it be unethical to hire a “girlfriend� to stop by the office next week to bring me my lunch? Maybe if I kiss and hug her as I say goodbye, my co-workers will finally back off. If not this, can you recommend something else? — Can’t Come Out in Texas Dear Can’t Come Out: You have described a classic example of sexual harassment and a hostile work environment. Your co-workers and supervisor may consider themselves to be “Cupid’s helpers,� but their actions could be the basis for a lawsuit. That you are gay has nothing to do with it. If you were straight and preferred not to involve yourself in an office romance that could turn out badly, or felt no chemistry with your aggressor, what is being done to you is intolerable. It’s embarrassing and distracts you from your job. Document everything. Go to your supervisor’s boss if necessary and state plainly that you need help to put a stop to this. You do not have to explain why you’re not attracted to this desperate woman. If it isn’t stopped, talk with an attorney. I do NOT recommend hiring

DEAR ABBY anyone to pose as a girlfriend, or you may have to put her under long-term contract, which could be expensive in more ways than one. Dear Abby: I have a problem that I don’t know how to deal with and I’m hoping you can come up with a solution. I’m undergoing chemotherapy for colon cancer. I’m happy to say that I’m doing well. I have a chemo session every two weeks, and afterward there is a bag I wear for two more days that pumps additional medicine into me. I do what I can to keep the bag out of sight, but it isn’t easy. Sometimes the tubing works itself loose and hangs down a bit. My problem is people seem to feel free to ask me what it’s for, and it’s really embarrassing. I don’t know these people, and for heaven’s sake, why would they feel they have the right to ask such a personal question? Some of them have approached me and asked loudly, “Hey! What’s that for?� Then they stand there waiting for me to answer the question. Going through chemo is hard enough physically and psychologically. I don’t need some ignorant clod asking me about something so personal. Some won’t take no for an answer. Do you have any ideas on how to deal with this? Every time it happens I feel depressed and upset. — Trying to Cope Dear Trying To Cope: Say, “I’m being treated for a medical condition.� And if the person then asks what it is, say, “It’s personal. And if it was any of your business, you’d already know the answer to that question.� — Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you often feel as though you cannot get certain elements of your life under control. You won’t want to leave anything to chance. By learning to detach, you will gain many new insights that could make a big difference in the choices you make. If you are single, the romance you think you are attracting could be very different in reality. Your ability to grow and transform within a relationship will be tested. Ultimately, that skill is needed in all relationships. If you are attached, you will have control of your finances. You will display considerable talent in that area. Curb a tendency to be possessive around TAURUS. 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) HHH You might find it difficult to move forward in the morning. Perhaps you have pushed yourself beyond your limit. As the day goes on, you’ll become more verbal and upbeat. Your logic appeals to someone. If you work together, you can implement changes. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You beam, and others respond. You might not be up for following a routine; instead, you could want to indulge in more spontaneity. Once in a while, taking some time off helps re-energize you. News from afar starts you thinking in a different direction. Tonight: Treat yourself well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Your day improves as time goes on. You know what someone wants because you have the ability to zero in on his or her needs. Unfortunately, your ability to respond often leaves this person thinking he or she has control of you. No such luck. You are your own person. Tonight: Do for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Assume a low-key attitude, and refuse to push yourself as hard as usual. You are able to change gears and do something differently, if you pull back. Your attitude toward a special friend or loved one might be changing. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You initially could feel quite pressured by certain events and by what is going on around you. You naturally will loosen up and open up

to new beginnings. Success comes out of your willingness to head in a new direction. Tonight: With friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You might want to do something in a very different manner from how you have done it in the past. Detachment helps you see the big picture. Take in as much as possible. A child or new friend continues to change right in front of your very eyes. Tonight: A must appearance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Deal with a partner first thing in the morning. You could be taken aback by what is happening around you. Try not to trigger a reaction from anyone, and stay centered. View a key situation from an outside perspective, and trust that you will know what to do. Tonight: Relax. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Spend quality time with a child or loved one. You could be withdrawn or wondering exactly how to handle a difficult situation. You decide to talk to a key person directly. You know what to do and what to expect. Tonight: Dinner for two! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might have organized a very tight schedule, but you will watch it unravel quickly during the day. Do not try to fight city hall. Go with the flow, and you will appreciate the fun and light mood. Tonight: Be aware of your spending habits. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You wake up in the mood to hang out with the one you love, but clearly you have much to do. If you decide to change direction, there could be repercussions in other areas of your life. Be aware of this before taking action. Tonight: Could be late. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Getting going could be a major effort for you, yet one that is worthwhile. Tap into your innate creativity, and you’ll discover solutions to what is seemingly impossible to resolve. Note the costs of taking a new course of action. Tonight: Let your hair down. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH Move on a key matter early in the day, when you will be most open to communication. Tension builds throughout the day. You might want to clear the air, but perhaps you would be best off staying away for now. Tonight: At home. Š 2012 by King Features Syndicate

It has given away 100 free tickets to each event to high schools throughout Deschutes County. “Author! Author! will improve literacy in the region,” said Strobel.

Don’t let kids go unsupervised. Children in off-leash areas are particularly vulnerable to bites because some dogs are unaccustomed to kids, said Taylor. Kids may not understand the signals when dogs feel threatened. For that reason, Taylor said, all children younger than 12 must be supervised by an adult in the dog parks, and adults with children should never let their kids approach a dog without the owner’s permission.

Do keep youngsters’ behavior in check. Adults should also keep their charges from running, squealing and bringing food or toys into offleash areas, because those things can trigger aggressive behavior in some dogs, Taylor said.

Do make sure kids wear shoes. As children are more susceptible to parasitic infections, adults should always make sure kids wear shoes in a dog park and wash their hands after handling dog toys.

Don’t overlook special areas. Special areas for small dogs — those shorter than 15 inches at the shoulder and weighing less than 25 pounds — are available in some parks, noted Taylor, and some, including the

Dogs greet a new arrival to the dog park along the Deschutes River.

DogTV: Species tune in, then drop out By Neil Genzlinger New York Times News Service

Cross-species experimentation can be dangerous, as Syfy channel movies like “Piranhaconda” and “Sharktopus” have made clear. And yet if a journalist isn’t willing to court danger in pursuit of truth, what good is he? That is why I have spent the summer making species other than dogs watch DogTV, a television and Internet channel made specifically for viewing by dogs. Not to brag, but my research raises provocative questions about perception, genetics and the very definition of sentience and life itself. DogTV, marketed as something for dogs to watch while their owners are at work, was first offered on cable systems in San Diego in February and received a burst of national publicity in April when it became available as an Internet stream. All this attention demands some critical assessment. I will leave it to dogs to judge the quality of DogTV programming, which includes footage of frolicking dogs, relaxing dogs and cogitating dogs, along with the occasional human or other nondog life-form. What I decided needed examination was the core concept, the whole notion that dogs have distinctly different television preferences from other species and that those preferences are knowable. DogTV, the service’s website says, is “scientifically developed to provide the right company for dogs” and is the product of “years of research.” Sure, but did they show their dog programs to a squirrel? I realized in early spring that it was going to be a critterheavy warm-weather season in my New Jersey yard because rabbits, chipmunks and squirrels were already lined up at my gardens with cutlery and napkins. So I resolved to test DogTV on whatever wildlife I could in the ensuing months and to augment those studies with tests that friends and family members conducted on their domestic animals at my request. (I have no pets myself, ensuring objectivity.) My control-group dogs had mixed reactions to DogTV that bordered on randomness: • Mitzy, a border collie mix in Westerly, R.I., was certainly stimulated by the “Stimulation” video: She was stimulated to get up and leave the room. • Dakota, a Dalmatian in

Molly the cat checks out a television showing DogTV, a television and Internet channel made specifically for viewing by dogs.

Westford, Vt., “quickly realized the dogs in the video were not going to try to take her spot and went right back to sleep,” her owner reported. Her companion, Otto, a German shorthaired pointer, “watched for about a minute and a half, then tried to lick the iPad.” •Maxie, a bichon frise in Hawley, Pa., who is said to prefer YoYo Ma delivered by radio to any sort of television, looked everywhere but the screen for most of all three videos, the exception being a brief glance when a dog owner in “Exposure” aimed the command “Sit” at her dog after a doorbell rang. • Walter, an Airedale in New York, ignored the screen for the first two videos and walked out on the third. His housemate, Fadilah, a Lakeland terrier, was also uninterested except during that controversial doorbell scene. “Her head did the telltale sign of paying attention (slightly cocked to the right) as the dog sat for his/her owner’s ‘sit,’” Fadilah’s owner reported, adding, “Then the image shifted to the people walking across the street, and she was done.” So much for the dog verdict on DogTV. The first out-of-species test subject was an 18-inch garter snake I apprehended in May. About one snake a year makes the mistake of coming into my yard, in which I enforce a strict no-snakes policy, and I have become quite adept at nabbing them. I decided to show this one “Relaxation,” since it seemed annoyed, possibly because I had imprisoned it in a Tupperware container for transport to someone else’s yard. Surprisingly, the video noticeably calmed down the snake. “Stimulation” and “Exposure,” however, seemed to have no effect at all, even though “Stimulation” includes images of an animated mouse, a favorite food of snakes.

As the summer wore on, I tested DogTV on various critters that convened to eat my flowers and vegetables. These animals’ fearlessness — sometimes they came into a garden while I was weeding it — enabled me to play DogTV for them occasionally on one of my two laptops, which I would set in the grass. In general, rabbits preferred the higher resolution of the MacBook, whereas squirrels favored the larger screen of the Toshiba. Chipmunks were too hyperactive to linger around either device, even though I sprinkled the keyboards liberally with birdseed, which chipmunks seem to enjoy far more than birds do. I do not recommend this practice, as the alt and ctrl keys on the Toshiba now sometimes stick. The rabbits and squirrels occasionally glanced at the DogTV videos but soon resumed pursuit of their apparent goal of eating the entire world. A more definitive opinion was rendered by Molly, my daughter’s cat, a sedentary beast roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle. She began her viewing session exhibiting unmistakable indifference but soon graduated to outright animosity. It wasn’t that she was afraid of the dogs on DogTV, my daughter reported; it was that she was annoyed at being asked to do anything outside of her normal routine, which is to do nothing. By the time “Exposure” played, Molly chose to curtail her own exposure by diving under the bed, where she remained for four hours. The last test subject of the summer was a turtle I rescued Monday as it sat in the middle of Clarksville Road in West Windsor, N.J. At first none of the three DogTV videos coaxed the turtle out of its shell, but after a while its curiosity was piqued. It seemed to enjoy the studied

languidness of “Relaxation” and be intrigued by parts of “Exposure.” But a graphic scene in “Stimulation,” in which a dog jumps into a pool and chews up a turtle-size water toy, seemed too much for the turtle. It bolted — yes, bolted — off the computer table. Anyway, it is clear from this summer-long study that DogTV produces exactly the same haphazard, unpredictable responses in nondogs that it does in dogs. Could it be that the distinctions we make between species are artificial,

that there are not many types of creatures on the planet, but essentially only one: the one that either stares at a TV screen or doesn’t, depending on factors that remain unclear? Aren’t we all, humans included, looking for relaxation or stimulation or exposure, unless we’re not?

LOCAL BRIEFING La Pine man injured in crash The Oregon State Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash that injured a La Pine man on Monday morning. Around 11 a.m., La Pine resident Gary Cullin, 79, was driving a pickup pulling a camper along state Highway 58, according to a news release. As he entered the Salt Creek Tunnel work zone, he drove into the back of an empty parked vehicle that belonged to a construction flagger, police said. Cullin’s pickup then hit the back of a vehicle being towed by a motorhome driven by Brenda Molina, 52, of La Pine, according to police. Molina was not injured. Cullin was taken by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend in Springfield with non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Redmond woman hurt in rollover A Redmond woman suffered minor injuries Monday morning after her pickup rolled in a wreck northeast of Bend. Betty Vaughn was driving a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 north on Deschutes Market Road near Margaret Lane around 9:45 a.m., when she tried to pass a 2012 Toyota Tacoma driven by Jerry Cartwright, of Bend, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. Vaughn swerved as Cartwright tried to make a turn, rolling her pickup into his truck. Cartwright, his passenger — Orville Duncan, of Bend — and three juveniles riding with Vaughn were not injured in the crash, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Vaughn was listed in fair condition Monday night at St. Charles Bend, a nursing supervisor said. Vaughn was cited for driving while suspended and following too close. — Bulletin staff reports

• Little partisanship during Labor Day pastimes; most wish for economic recovery By Dylan J. Darling The Bulletin


lthough hot dogs and hamburgers were on the grill, it was politics in the air Monday at a Bend union workers picnic. As about 150 people munched through the Labor Day meal at Pio-

neer Park, candidates for local office spoke during the annual Solidarity Day Picnic held by the Central Oregon Labor Council. The event has an open mic for candidates during a political year, said Linda Bradetich, president of the labor council.

“We let anyone who wants to speak speak,” she said. “(2010 Republican candidate for governor) Chris Dudley was here two years ago.” The picnic drew members from about 10 unions and several community organizations, Bradetich said. See Labor Day / C2

Council candidate wants voters Blaylock case casts in Bend to choose their mayor shadow on discovery By Ben Botkin

The Bulletin

Bend resident Charles Baer will seek a position on the Bend City Council, citing an interest in allowing voters to have a say in picking the mayor. A four-way race is on for the open council seat, which councilor and current Mayor Jeff Eager is leaving without seeking re-election. The other candidates are Edward Barbeau, Doug Knight and

Edward McCoy. Baer, 43, has lived in Bend since 2007. He says he’s running for office because he wants Bend’s residents to gain the ability to vote for their mayor. Under the city’s Baer current structure, councilors are voted into office and they, in turn, decide who should be Bend’s mayor. See Baer / C2

She was last seen on Oct. 26, 2010. After she was reported missing, her husband Steven Blaylock told police his wife had walked away from their home on Northeast Genet Court after a drunken argument and

hadn’t returned. When police searched the home, they found a confession note detailing where Blaylock had dumped his wife’s body in the North Santiam River. After he was arrested and charged with murder, Blaylock led police to the location where he had dumped Lori Blaylock’s body in the river, near Marion Forks. He also helped the police locate pieces of her clothing hidden on the riverbank. Her body has never been found. Steven Blaylock was con-

victed of murder in November, 2011 after a three-week trial, and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years. In December, 2010, kayakers discovered a body believed to be that of Lori Blaylock in the North Santiam, but by the time searchers arrived at the eddy, the body had moved. Officials testified that searchers and divers hunted for Blaylock’s body in the North Santiam River and Detroit Lake six times, twice each in November and December, 2010, and again in

February and April, 2011. Law enforcement personnel flew a helicopter over the area in February, 2011, and in April, 2011, cadaver dogs found several suspicious spots in Detroit Lake. Larson said Lori Blaylock was on his mind. “Blaylock was the first one that came to my mind,” when the body was found Saturday, he said, noting he didn’t know of any missing persons cases in his county that might be related to the discovery. — Reporter: 541-617-7831,

Radio tower Continued from C1 The proposed tower would serve local needs and would be one of several new installations allowing agencies from around the state to communicate in the event of a major disaster. The program, known as the State Radio Project, has now turned its attention to two alternate sites, according to project spokeswoman Jill Smith — Powell Butte between Redmond and Prineville, and Wampus Butte between La Pine and Wickiup Reservoir. Smith said the change in direction is largely because of concerns that existing towers on Awbrey Butte, including those for cellphone networks and television transmission, could create electronic interference for the State Radio Project’s tower. Communication towers are in place on both Powell and Wampus buttes, but not in the numbers seen atop Awbrey Butte. Residents of Awbrey Butte took issue with the proposed tower at a meeting in July, 2011 with representatives of the state and the Sheriff’s Office, describing electronic interference with home appliances and raising concerns about its height. Not long after the meeting, the Sheriff’s Office announced the project had been put on hold.

Would have been a boost Capt. Erik Utter of the Sheriff’s Office said the tower would have been a boost for local law enforcement, but he’s pleased the Awbrey Butte plan was shelved. “If it’s in the name of public safety, we would probably win the day,” he said. “But we’re not going to put a big tower up there until we can answer all the questions to the satisfaction of the people up there on Awbrey Butte.” However, new towers will have to be built somewhere, Utter said, and soon. Like the state, Central Oregon public safety agencies are eyeing ra-

dio upgrades that will allow them to better communicate with each other. Fire and police departments around the region use a combination of older VHF radios and more modern 700 and 800 MHz systems, none of which can directly communicate with one another, Utter said. For example, if a Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputy needed to communicate with someone from the Redmond Fire Department, the deputy’s 800 MHz radio would not work, Utter said, and he’d have to switch to his backup VHF system. Even the Sheriff’s Office’s relatively modern radios will soon be outdated. Utter said Motorola has informed the Sheriff’s Office that it will no longer make replacement parts for its 800 MHz system, and hopes to phase the system out entirely by 2016 in favor of one using digital signals on the same frequency. If fire and police agencies in Central Oregon can agree to move to a single radio system — and come up with the funding to implement it — a new, tall tower somewhere in the region would likely be a part of the switch, Utter said.

Subject to new code The Awbrey Butte tower would have been the first tower subject to codes adopted by the Bend City Council in spring 2011, limiting the height of structures in certain areas and encouraging camouflaging to limit their visual impact. Bend Senior Planner Aaron Hanson said since the Awbrey Butte plan was set aside, there have been few applications for new towers that would test how well the new codes work. Hanson said there is only one application for a new communication tower currently before the city — a Verizon cellular tower proposed atop a commercial building on Northwest Galveston Avenue that would be masked to resemble a chimney. — Reporter: 541-383-0387,

Man killed in highway dispute

Tropical tuna caught off Coast Portland colleges By Henry Miller

BANDON — The Coos County District Attorney’s office reports one man is dead and another is in critical condition after a dispute on U.S. Highway 101 turned deadly Sunday evening. The Oregonian reports the alleged shooter is also in custody. Timothy Allen Henson is charged with one count of murder, attempted murder and assault in the second degree. He is scheduled to be arraigned today. Coos County authorities say the victims and the alleged shooter are all Myrtle Creek residents. The other person injured was a woman who was wounded in her arm. Oregon State Police is the lead agency investigating the case.

Salem man shot, killed in parking lot


SALEM — Salem police have identified the victim of a fatal shooting in the parking lot of a local Walmart store as 28-year-old Bryan John Lee Knorr, of Salem. The Statesman Journal in Salem says the shooting occurred just before 6 a.m. Sunday. Salem police Lt. Dave Okada says the victim had been shopping and was confronted in the parking lot by the suspect. According to authorities, shots were fired after a confrontation. The victim was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Police say they are looking for a Honda SUV that is gold or tan in color. There is a white temporary registration in the back window and a blue placard where the license plate would normally be displayed. — From wire reports

Central Point home ‘total loss’ after fire By Teresa Ristow The Mail Tribune (Medford)

Fire investigators are working to determine the cause of a Sunday night house fire in Central Point that caused significant damage. Firefighters from Fire District No. 3 responded to a 911 call just after 7 p.m. that flames were shooting out of a small two-story home at 191 Wilson Road. When crews arrived, they saw smoke pouring out of a back door, and believe the fire originated in the back bedroom of the house, according to Dave Blakely, District 3 division chief. Neighbor Kyle Hood said the resident of the home, Terry Worthington, was yelling for someone to call 911 and trying to extinguish the fire with a garden hose. “He went inside a couple of times and then turned right back around,” said Hood. Four engines from District 3 and Medford Fire-Rescue responded to the call, and had the fire knocked out within 10 minutes, according to Blakely. “We have no leads on the cause,” said Blakely, who added that no one was inside the home when crews arrived and that some belongings were salvaged and dragged onto the front lawn. No one was injured, Blakely added. By 7:30 p.m., crews were airing out the home with fans and taking out smoldering furniture. A Pacific Power employee used a bucket lift to cut the power lines to the house after the fire. The house likely was a total loss, according to Arlen Blenkush, District 3 battalion chief. Hood said that Worthington and his wife lived at the home and both were able to safely exit the house. Worthington’s three children were not home during the fire, according to Hood.

SALEM — Off of Florida they’re called dolphinfish. Off of Mexico they’re known as dorado. When they’re caught off Hawaii, they’re mahi-mahi. Off of Oregon? They’re known as, well, weird. John Boyer, of Salem, was at the helm of the Myrtle Bee on Thursday about 45 miles out of Depoe Bay — slow trolling for albacore tuna — en route to his home berth in Newport after fishing the Oregon Tuna Classic tournament out of Garibaldi, The Statesman Journal reported. Something slapped the

blue Eat Me Lures cedar plug on the rod of Boyer’s daughter, Cindy. “We were like ‘fish on’ and reeling up all of the reels,” she said, “and I go ‘Dad, that fish just jumped.’” Tuna almost never come out of the water. “And he was like ‘What?’ And then it jumped again,” Cindy said. From fishing off of Baja, she knew just was it was: a tropical species known there as a dorado. “We actually caught it on a cedar plug, so very thin, very frail, so I’m actually amazed it stayed on the hook,” Cindy said. Boyer managed to gaff it

and get it on board, about a 14-pounder. It was a stunner for him. “Never,” he said about a dorado being caught that close to shore. “I’ve heard of a couple being caught farther off, but this is a first for me.” A lot of people at the Newport docks had never seen anything like it. “A couple people said, ‘What’s that?’” Cindy said with a laugh, then added about the photos, “People don’t even believe me. They’re like ‘Oh, you PhotoShopped that.’” Hard to barbecue a photo, though. Which is what the Boyers did Friday night.

seek to bring in more veterans

The Associated Press PORTLAND — Colleges in Portland are among higher learning institutions gearing up to better accommodate a growing population of veterans. The American Council on Education recently released a report that surveyed 690 public and private institutions nationwide and found that 62 percent of them provided services for veterans. That’s an increase from 57 percent in 2009, The Oregonian reported. Four years after Congress passed the G.I. Bill, more than 500,000 veterans and family members are using the benefits from the legislation providing full scholarships for veterans wanting to pursue degrees. Meg Mitcham, director of veterans programs for the American Council on Education, says its sur-

vey found that 71 percent of schools identified expanding veteran resources as part of their long-term planning. Colleges in Portland exemplify how schools are focusing on keeping pace with the changes. At Portland State University, more than 1,000 student veterans enrolled for this fall. Officials say it’s a number that has increased rapidly in recent years. A fourth-floor office on the campus is being transformed into the new Veterans Resource Center and will include counseling services, a lounge area and an administrative area. “It’s not much now, but come back in a few weeks,” said Dave Christensen, vice president of program development for Viking Vets, the PSU student veteran association. At Portland Community College, more than 1,400 veterans will be enrolled in the fall semester.

Architecture students at UO build giant pinhole camera By Bob Keefer The Register-Guard (Eugene)

EUGENE — Imagine telling a group of architects, simply: Build something. It should be interesting and useful. It needs to sit out in the Oregon forest. You don’t get to use power tools. You’ve got fewer than 10 days to complete the project. And we’re not going to tell you what it is. That was the group assignment 14 architecture students from around the world were given a few weeks ago in a summer design workshop run by London’s Architectural Association at the University of Oregon. With that open-ended charge, the students got to work conceiving, designing and building a 16-foottall camera obscura — kind of a walk-in camera — that now sits on a ridge overlooking the forest on a tree farm southwest of Eugene. They completed the structure on Aug. 19. “We started with a tour of the forest,” said Kristin Cross, a Eugene native who teaches at the Architectural Association, an independent institution known for an emphasis on theory and design. From there, students discussed concepts and ideas and came to the idea of the camera obscura, a concept known as far back as Aristotle. “It’s very rare that students have an opportunity to work with architecture at full scale,” said Jason Griffiths, an architecture professor at Arizona State University who was one of the workshop leaders. “These students can try things and make mistakes and make decisions, based on the real thing.”

Camera obscura The real thing in this case — the camera obscura, which is Latin for

“darkened room” — turns out to be a wigwam-shaped swirl of Douglas fir veneer scraps donated by Rosboro Lumber Co. after the students toured a plywood mill. On one wall of the structure, which can hold just about four people inside, is a tiny window, into which is set the lens from a pair of reading glasses. The lens focuses a large, upside-down image of a bucolic view across the valley onto the opposite wall — at least once your eyes adjust for a few minutes to the darkness inside.

Local materials The student designers were drawn to the idea of using a simple, historically interesting device to focus people’s attention on the beautiful view from the ridge. Built from local materials, the structure reflects the shape of both the timber industry’s iconic wigwam burners and that of rotting stumps in the forest. After some discussion among the student builders, the circular ceiling of the finished structure was fashioned so that it could be opened with a rope and pulley, allowing people inside to look up and enjoy the forest canopy. Architectural theory is one thing. Building something in the Oregon woods with your bare hands is something else again, said Shai Akram, a

product designer from London who signed up for the workshop. “Coming here made me remember lots of things from my childhood, like how to draw a perfect circle using a piece of string, that are useful when you’re away from your Mac,” she said. Even once a design and the materials were agreed on, building the camera obscura was not a trivial process. “We expected to have green, freshly milled pieces (of veneer),” said Justin Austen, an undergraduate UO student in architecture. “These are stiffer. But we took a couple sheets and were able to bend them over a frame.” “So here they are, doing this with their own hands,” Griffiths chimed in. “You find out what the material is capable of by doing it.”

Built to last? The structure sits on a ridge just off a logging skid road in the middle of the Bauman Family Tree Farm, a commercial tree-growing operation whose resident owners, Tom Bauman and his wife, Lindsay Reaves, use the farm for educational programs put on by the nonprofit organization Forests Today and Forever. They volunteered their property for the architecture workshop project and are looking forward to participating in future summer workshops. Reaves watched the last stages of construction of the giant camera that afternoon with appreciation and a bit of amusement. There would be, she predicted, issues with the structure’s long-term survival, from damage done by winter storms to animals taking up residence inside. “If it lasts for five or 10 years, great!” she said. “It’s about the process. “Next year, hopefully, they’ll do it again — and this will still be there as an example for the new students.”

The Associated Press PORTLAND — Fire officials say a dramatic fire at a vacant hotel in North Portland has caused an estimated $5.6 million in damages. Portland Fire & Rescue spokesman Michael Silva said arson has not been ruled out as a cause of the five-alarm fire that took more than 200 fire crew members from around the region to put out. The fire destroyed major portions of the historic Thunderbird Hotel on Hayden Island near Interstate 5. The freeway was closed for several hours early Sunday because embers were hitting cars on the highway and smoke was limiting visibility. Although the hotel has been vacant for several years, the building was being used for storage, including mattresses and other furniture, which contributed to the spread of the fire. Crews expected to continue mopping up the fire today, The Columbian reported in Monday’s newspaper.

It is considered the biggest local fire in more than a decade and its cause probably will not be known for days. “We haven’t had a fivealarm structure fire since 1999,” said Ron Rouse, fire inspector for Portland Fire & Rescue. “I’ve heard from several firefighters that that was the biggest fire they have been on in their careers” Rouse said. The 352-room hotel has been vacant since 2005. It was once owned by Vancouver’s Tod McClaskey and Ridgefield’s Ed Pietz, who sold their 54-hotel empire in 1984. The site once was mentioned for a Walmart store, but plans fell through. Rod Russell, director of operations for the Thunderbird, said the building had not been condemned and was for sale. But given the circumstances, the chances of a buyer coming through are “slim to none,” he said months before the fire.

Bend’s sewers demand our attention now


f you thought the $68 million price on Bend’s surface water solution was big, the cost of fixing Bend’s sewer issues is likely bigger.

The city is already planning to spend some $38 million to expand its sewer plant. It could use as much as $106 million more if it proceeds with a plan for new, major sewer lines to deliver sewage to the plant. Tom Hickmann, the city’s engineer and assistant public works director, told The Bulletin that Bend is nearly at capacity at the city’s north end. “We are counting drops,� he said. Manhole 3157, located on the Bend Parkway near the Cascade Village Shopping Center, is one of the places where Bend’s problem sometimes overflows or comes close. There are many specific problems. Bend’s fleet of pumps can work against each other. Sewer lines should usually feed into bigger lines, but sometimes they feed into smaller ones. There are gas lines punched right through some sewer lines — a potentially explosive problem for maintenance equipment traveling down the pipe. Lines have also collapsed. The city did not even have an accurate picture of the system it operates until 2007. Whatever or whoever caused those problems doesn’t matter as much now as finding a way to fix them and keep them from

Whatever or whoever caused those problems doesn’t matter as much now as finding a way to fix them and keep them from happening again. happening again. The city is doing the little things it can. It has bolted down some manhole covers to keep manholes from overflowing. It’s reached an agreement with Deschutes Brewery, for instance, to discharge at night when the city’s system has more capacity. An 18-member advisory group is helping the city sort through options for the bigger questions. The collection of businesspeople, conservationists and others is learning about the problems and helping the city evaluate its options. It’s perhaps not as easy to get Bend residents excited about spending more money to ensure the city’s sewer needs as, say, new parks or fixing roads and roundabouts. But either Bend finds the money to make the necessary fixes or the problems will multiply and the city will be forced to say no to new homes and new businesses.

Bend should extend fee deferral program


end city councilors will be asked to extend the life of a program that allows builders in the community to delay paying most of their system development charges for as long as nine months. It’s been a good program; it should be continued. System development charges are the way in which governments try to assure that new residents and businesses pay their fair share to expand infrastructure. The city collects fees for sewer, water and transportation needs. The park district collects to expand parks. The delayed payment program applies only to the city’s SDCs. The program was put in place in 2008, after the housing market tanked, as a small economic stimulus for an important but hurting industry. Before that, city SDCs were paid up front, when permits to build were obtained. The program has been renewed every year since it began, and

there’s no reason to stop now. So far, 54 builders have sought deferrals on 112 buildings, all but four of which have been homes. The deferrals amount to more than $1.6 million in delayed fees, with about $500,000 still outstanding. There are no delinquent accounts. SDCs are not likely to go away. They’ve become important revenue streams for the agencies that collect them, and cities and others would find their streams difficult to replace. At the same time, deferring SDC payments until a building is occupied or for nine months has not brought city government to its knees. Yes, it has cost some small amount of interest that would have been earned for those nine months, but these days that cannot amount to much. City councilors should extend the deferral program, and while they’re at it, consider making it permanent.

Candidates quiet on big issues By Jackson Diehl The Washington Post


his presidential election will likely determine whether the United States and Russia undertake a major new reduction of nuclear weapons; whether U.S. arms are supplied to Syrian rebels; whether more U.S. troops are withdrawn from Afghanistan next year; and whether Washington renews pressure on Israel to accept terms for a Palestinian state. It could significantly lower the threshold for a U.S. military strike against Iran. You wouldn’t know any of that from listening to the conventions, of course. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama appear determined to avoid serious debate. The GOP convention last week echoed with vague slogans about “American leadership� and Obama’s “weakness.� This week, expect to hear lots from Charlotte about the killing of Osama bin Laden and the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. That doesn’t mean, as some in the foreign policy world like to argue, that this presidential election won’t change much, even if Romney wins. It’s true that U.S. interests and the pursuit of them tend to remain broadly consistent across presidencies. Obama has fought alQaida just as ruthlessly as George W. Bush; if Romney is elected, he will surely drop his threats to start a trade war with China, just as Bush and Bill Clinton did. There nevertheless are some big and bright differences in this election on foreign policy. More even than those on the economy, they are likely to have practical consequences within months of the election — since, for the most part, action by Congress won’t be necessary. Though the candidates

don’t talk about them, they are easy enough to find in their position papers, or in Obama’s case, his firstterm record. Start with Russia. Never mind Romney’s much-reported claim that Russia is “our number one geopolitical foe,� or Obama’s oversold “reset� with Moscow. The significant difference is that if Obama is re-elected, he will seek to strike a new deal with Vladimir Putin to significantly cut the U.S. and Russian nuclear stockpiles. To do that, he acknowledged last March, he will have to compromise with Putin on U.S. and NATO plans for missile defense; in what he thought was a private aside, he told then-President Dmitry Medvedev that “after my election, I have more flexibility� on that. Romney’s policy would be close to the opposite. In 2010, he strongly opposed Obama’s New Start treaty with Russia, which made a modest trim in nuclear warheads. Romney meanwhile has promised to boost spending on missile defense, which has been a pet GOP cause for three decades. So there’s one clear choice: fewer nukes, or more missile defense. Next come U.S. military engagements, present and potentially future. Both Obama and Romney support NATO’s plan to withdraw combat forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2014, which has provoked some lazy commentary suggesting they don’t differ on the war. In fact, they likely disagree on an urgent question — whether American forces should be reduced next year. Obama is likely to order a cut; Romney has said he will follow the advice of U.S. generals, who will probably recommend that the postSeptember force of 68,000 be maintained through next year. In Syria, Obama has repeatedly

rejected proposals that the United States help establish safe zones for civilians or supply weapons to the rebels. But Romney has come out for arming the opposition. And what of Iran? Both men have indicated they would use force as a last resort to stop Tehran’s nuclear program. But there is a significant difference: While Obama has said he has “a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,� Romney said in Israel this summer that he would not tolerate an Iranian nuclear “capability.� In other words, Obama probably would use force only if Iran actually tried to build a bomb, while a Romney attack could be triggered if Iran were merely close to acquiring all the means for a weapon — which it is. Last but not least comes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Obama came to office with a burning ambition to broker Palestinian statehood; that and the reduction of nuclear arms seem to be the foreign policy issues that engage him emotionally. The statehood push was one of the administration’s biggest busts, largely because of Obama’s own missteps, and during the election year it has been on hold. Yet it seems likely that a re-elected Obama will try again, notwithstanding his poor relations with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Romney, in contrast, has made it clear that he, like George W. Bush in his first term, will put Palestinian statehood on a back burner. To be sure, these differences may not mean as much to voters as the future of Medicare or of the Supreme Court. But they do matter — which is why it’s a shame that neither campaign is talking about them. — Jackson Diehl is a columnist for The Washington Post.

Negative campaigns were old hat for the Founding Fathers By Dick Polman The Philadelphia Inquirer


lot of people seem to think the lies and insults unleashed in the current presidential race are unprecedented — one headline the other day declared, “Worst. Campaign. Ever.� — and that, by sinking so low, we have sullied the highminded democracy envisioned by the Founding Fathers. But here’s some perspective: The Founding Fathers actually wrote the book on how to brawl in the streets. In the words of historian Edward Larson, “They could write like angels and scheme like demons.� Consider the campaign of 1800 — when, for the first time, two political parties skirmished for presidential power. Thomas Jefferson looks noble on the nickel in your pocket, but back in the day, he hired hatchet men to do his dirty work. As the challenger in 1800, his goal was to topple the incumbent. His critique of President John Adams included the accusation that he was “a hideous hermaphroditical charac-

ter, which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.â€? In 2012, at least, neither candidate has been accused of having the sex organs of both genders — although we still have two months to go. Adams also did his business through surrogates. Jefferson was described as “a mean-spirited, lowlived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father ‌ raised wholly on hoe-cake (made of coarse-ground Southern corn), bacon, and hominy, with an occasional change of fricasseed bullfrog ‌ â€? Granted, that menu sounds like something dreamed up by an artisan in the local food movement in 2012. But all that stuff about the squaw and the mulatto — suffice it to say Obama was hardly the first presidential candidate to be tarred as something less than a real American. Nor is Obama the first president whose detractors have called him a dictator. Adams got the same treat-

ment from the Jefferson gang, which contended that the rumored hermaphrodite was not only “one of the most egregious fools upon the continent� and a “strange compound of ignorance and ferocity, of deceit and weakness,� but a wannabe monarch plotting to destroy democracy. But that’s also how the Adams gang painted Jefferson. He had been an early supporter of the French Revolution; therefore, said Team Adams, he would import the guillotine and sow French-style chaos. Their vision of a Jefferson presidency looked like this: “Murder, robbery, rape, adultery and incest will all be openly taught and practiced, the air will be rent with the cries of the distressed, the soil will be soaked with blood, and the nation black with crimes.� Last week, a Texas judge named Tom Head warned that Obama’s re-election could trigger unrest and “possibly civil war.� Whatever, pal. You can’t hold a candle to Adams’ Federalist attack dogs. The biggest dogs wrote for the Ga-

zette of the United States, basically the Fox News of the Federalist Party. They targeted Jefferson’s alleged defilement of Christianity. One broadside read: “The only question to be asked by every American, laying his hand on his heart, is, ‘shall I continue in allegiance to GOD — AND A RELIGIOUS PRESIDENT; Or impiously declare for JEFFERSON — AND NO GOD!!!’� Based on a couple of sentences Jefferson had penned in the early 1780s — “It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are 20 gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.� — the Federalists warned in pamphlets that if the “open infidel� were elected, he would buttress his “contemptuous fling at the blessed Jesus� by shuttering the churches. Jefferson denounced the “lying pamphlets� and “absolute falsehoods,� but only in private. He wrote to a friend, “It has been so impossible to contradict all their lies that I have determined to contradict none; for while I should be engaged with one, they would publish twenty new

ones.� How old-fashioned: In 2012, candidates are expected to respond to all charges within the same news cycle. Jefferson’s allies struck back with a rumor that Adams and a colleague had sexually consorted with four women during a trip to Britain — not bad for a hermaphrodite. Adams answered that one: He joked that his colleague must have kept all four women for himself, “cheating me out of my two.� And then it was over. On Inauguration Day, the victorious Jefferson called for an end to partisan strife: “We are all Republicans. We are all Federalists.� And: “Let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty, and even life itself, are dreary things.� We’ll hear the same thing in January. The pleas will go unheeded, of course, but that’s OK. We’ll survive, just as we have ever since our founding angels schemed like demons. — Dick Polman is a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer.




O Former Black Panthers recall past for OSF play Duncan was nominated for Oscar for ‘Green Mile’ role By Vickie Aldous

Ashland Daily Tidings

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Michael Clarke Duncan, the tall and massively built actor with the shaved head and deep voice who received an Academy Award nomination for his moving portrayal of a gentle death row inmate in the 1999 prison drama “The Green Mile,� died Monday. He was 54. Duncan died at CedarsSinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to a statement from his publicist, Joy Fehily. He had suffered a heart attack in July and did not recover. A former ditch digger for a natural gas company in his native Chicago, Duncan began his Hollywood saga as a celebrity bodyguard in the mid-1990s. He received his first big acting break playing a member of the drilling team sent into space to blow up an asteroid heading to Earth in the big-budget 1998 movie “Armageddon,� starring Bruce Willis. But it was “The Green Mile,� starring Tom Hanks as a death row prison guard in a Louisiana penitentiary during the Depression, that thrust the 6-foot-5, 300-plus-pound Duncan into the limelight. He portrayed John Coffey, a gentle giant with supernatural powers who has been sentenced to death for the murder of two white girls. “There was something about him that I just couldn’t ignore,� writer-director Frank Darabont said of Duncan in a 2000 Daily Variety interview. “After his first reading, he kept haunting me. Given that he was a fairly inexperienced actor at that point, obviously there was a concern about ‘Gee, how would this guy do?’ “But once we put him on film, it became apparent that he was up to the task.� Duncan credited acting coach Larry Moss with teaching him “how to dig within myself� for the heavily emotional crying scenes in the movie. “I’m an emotional person, a very emotional person,� Duncan told the Chicago Tribune in 2000. “All those tears you see in the movie were mine.� In 2002, two years after the Academy Awards ceremony, Duncan told the Orange County Register: “Realistically, I didn’t think I would win the Oscar, but the nomination was a personal validation for me. It proved to me that I was a good actor. More important, it showed other people that I was a serious actor.�

Other roles Duncan later appeared in films such as “The Whole Nine Yards� (2000), “Planet of the Apes� (2001), “The Scorpion King� (2002) and “The Island� (2005). He also did voice work in films and television, including “Brother Bear� (2003) and “Kung Fu Panda� (2008). He was born Dec. 10, 1957, and grew up on Chicago’s South Side. His father left the family when he was 6, and he and his sister, Judith, were raised by their mother, who steered him clear of gangs, drugs and alcohol. Growing up, he harbored dreams of becoming an actor. “Of course, people told me, ‘Mikey, you will never be an actor. You don’t have the look. You’re ugly,’ “ he recalled in a 2003 Chicago Sun-Times interview.

“I’m used to being the big tough guy, the bodyguard type. I had never taken a role like this. I started reading (‘The Green Mile’) and couldn’t put it down. I got emotional while reading it. Once I finished it, I said, ‘That’s me. I don’t care what I have to do, but I’ve got to play this role.’� — Michael Clark Duncan, actor, 1957-2012

What helped him, he said, was that his mother “always told me to think ‘YCDA.’ That stands for ‘You Can Do Anything.’� Duncan attended Alcorn State University in Mississippi but left before graduating to help support his ailing mother. Back in Chicago, he began working for the gas company. On the job, he talked so much about his dream of going to Hollywood and becoming an actor that his co-workers dubbed him “Hollywood Mike.� He finally quit his job and became a security guard for a traveling show. Once the show reached Los Angeles, he decided to stay.

Bodyguard work Working first as a bodyguard for Martin Lawrence, Will Smith and other stars, he began landing small parts in films and television. In 1998, he played bouncers in “Bulworth� and “A Night at the Roxbury� and a bodyguard in “The Players Club.� While making “Armageddon,� Duncan became friends with Willis, who was instrumental in getting him the role in Darabont’s adaptation of

Stephen King’s serial novel “The Green Mile.� “Bruce told me, ‘Michael, I’ve just read this script and you are this guy John Coffey. I just know it,’� Duncan recalled in a 2001 Ottawa Citizen interview. Willis said he’d call Darabont — and he did, telling him that he had found the man to play the role.

‘Dreams can come true’ “I’m used to being the big tough guy, the bodyguard type,� Duncan told the New Orleans Times-Picayune in 2000. “I had never taken a role like this. I started reading the novel and couldn’t put it down. I got emotional while reading it. Once I finished it, I said, ‘That’s me. I don’t care what I have to do, but I’ve got to play this role.’� As “The Green Mile� was about to open in theaters nationwide in 1999, Duncan told The New York Times, “This is really like a gift from God. I tell people, ‘It’s just like a cliche, but it’s true: In Hollywood, dreams can come true.’� Besides his mother, Jean, and his sister, Judith, he is survived by his fiancee, actress Omarosa Manigault.

two years in prison awaiting trial before the charges were dropped. Huggins said she taught herself to meditate while in prison. She has used that experience to teach meditation, yoga, relaxation and mindfulness in jails, prisons, school, colleges and homes for foster kids, adopted children and pregnant teens.

Lives in academia Both Huggins and OliverVelez have made lives for themselves in academia while also continuing their activist work. They each branched out to work on AIDS/HIV issues as well. During the height of the Black Panther and Young Lords movements, which had Marxist political components, the two turned their backs on religion. “We were told religion is the opiate of the people,� OliverVelez said. In later years, the two — who didn’t know each other before the “Party People� project — embraced spirituality, noting that religion has often sustained people of color. They pointed to many leaders, from Sojourner Truth to Martin Luther King, Jr., who drew on their spirituality for strength. “I’m not going to apologize for figuring out a way to heal,� Oliver-Verez said. “Solutions are about healing.� She said many former Black Panther and Young Lords members suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder because of the violence of their younger lives. The Black Panthers, with their black jackets and berets and penchant for carrying loaded weapons in public, were the most notorious. The Young Lords were also viewed as violent by mainstream society and sported their own berets and weapons. But Huggins and OliverVerez said the movements also focused on a broad range of social, medical and educational projects. Oliver-Verez said she didn’t join the Young Lords to wear

‘We didn’t fail’ Looking at the many changes that have taken place in America since then, but also at the lingering racism, sexism, agism and homophobia, Huggins said a society — just like a massive cargo-carrying barge — takes a long time to turn. “What I know is, we didn’t fail,� she said. As she continues on with new forms of activism, Huggins said she tries to stay aware of the accomplishments of her ancestors. She sometimes finds herself talking to her heroes from the past, such as Harriet Tubman, who rescued more than 70 people from slavery via the Underground Railroad. “I feel she tells me, ‘You kept going. You kept walking,’� Huggins said. “I know it’s important to keep walking.� “Party People� runs through Nov. 3. For more information, visit

Man, group trade lawsuits over turf By Damian Mann The Mail Tribune (Medford)

A skirmish over a patch of artificial turf has turned into a legal war between a homeowner and the Eagle Point Golf Community Homeowners Association. A lawsuit filed by the association in March against “Captain� W.H.M.J. van der Horst has prompted a counter suit filed this week

Van der Horst thinks most people should be green with envy at how much better his lawn looks than theirs, pointing out a neighborhood filled with brown lawns and brown patches withering in the August sun. “I can’t understand the

stupidity of people,� van der Horst said. Van der Horst installed his artificial turf in the summer of 2010, which led to a series of letters and pleas from the association to remove it because it violates community rules. John Dowdy, president of the homeowners association, said recently that he couldn’t discuss the lawsuit.

Oliver-Velez said that for her, watching “Party People� was gut-wrenching. The play doesn’t shy away from the activistversus-police violence that characterized the movements, and explores how Black Panther members tortured one of their comrades because they thought he was an informant. It also shows how the groups were targeted by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. “Being on the front line of that, it was difficult, and it broke our hearts,� Huggins said. As an 18-year-old in 1969, Huggins became the leader of a Los Angeles chapter of the Black Panther Party along with her husband. He was killed three weeks after the birth of their daughter. Undeterred, Huggins went on to open a Black Panthers Party chapter in Connecticut. She was later arrested on conspiracy charges and spent

a jacket and a beret, but to instead help people in their communities. She remembers one community that suffered because sanitation workers wouldn’t visit minority neighborhoods to pick up trash, leading to wretched, filthy conditions there. “People’s children would have roaches in their ears and their kids would have rat bites,� Oliver-Verez said, adding that babies had to be protected with screens. She and her fellow activists cleaned up the garbage and bagged it. When sanitation workers still wouldn’t come to take away the trash, the activists grew frustrated, threw the garbage in the street and set it on fire. For her part, Huggins — who had wanted to become a teacher since childhood — served as the director of the Oakland Community School, which was founded by the Black Panther Party. Women in the civil rights movement not only had to contend with racism, they also had to deal with sexism within the activist groups themselves. Huggins recalled arriving in Oakland and preparing for a meal with members of a Black Panther chapter. “A person came in and said, ‘The brothers eat first,’� she recalled, noting that the women had prepared the food. Women in the party wrote many memoranda to leaders about how they were being treated as second-class citizens within the movement, Huggins said.

When people learn that Denise Oliver-Velez and Ericka Huggins were once members of the Black Panther Party, their reactions are the same. “People want to stick me in a box. ‘Oh! You’re the revolutionary!’ As if that’s the whole sum of who I am and as if I’m stuck in a time warp,� said Oliver-Velez, who was a member of the Black Panthers and the Puerto Rican Young Lords. “I’m not where I was in the 1960s — but I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be a walking caricature or cartoon of myself,� she said. Oliver-Velez and Huggins are among former members of the revolutionary activist groups who have traveled to Ashland this summer to watch the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Party People.� Part play and part musical event, “Party People� was crafted by UNIVERSES, an international ensemble of performers. Members of the ensemble spent three years interviewing former Black Panther Party and Young Lords members, resulting in a play that fuses history with dance, gospel, 1960s songs and modern hip-hop.

American Indian remains, artifacts to go to tribes By Paul Fattig The Mail Tribune (Medford)

Human remains and funerary items found near the Little Applegate River more than 60 years ago likely will be presented to the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde later this month. The remains — in the form of 10 teeth — and funerary items, given to the Southern Oregon Historical Society in 1952 by a local miner, were uncovered on land once occupied by tribal ancestors. They will be given to the Grande Ronde tribes if no other tribe steps forward to make a claim by Sept. 24, according to the SOHS. Following a lengthy study, the society concluded the teeth and items had no affiliation to modern-day tribes but should be given to the Grand Ronde because they were found on the tribes’ ancestral lands. The Grand Ronde were removed to a reservation west of Salem following the Rogue River Indian Wars in the mid-1850s. SOHS had consulted with tribal representatives, as well as members of the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians. In addition to the Grand Ronde and Cow Creek Band, SOHS contacted the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians; Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians; Coquille Tribe of Oregon; and the Quartz Valley Indian Reservation in Northern California.

‘Tie up loose ends’ “This was all part of our collection that we have tried to get repatriated in the past,” said Tina Reuwsaat, associate curator of collections for SOHS. “We have tried to get them back to the appropriate tribes but haven’t been able to until now,” she added. “We are trying to tie up loose ends with this.” SOHS became involved when miner O.N. Snavely donated the items to the society 60 years ago. The miner found the teeth and funerary items sometime

earlier near Buncom at a site on private land along the Little Applegate River about two miles above its confluence with the Applegate River. He reportedly told SOHS that he had “found this grave while mining.” The decision to return the items was published in an Aug. 23 notice in the National Register by the U.S. Department of Interior. The action is being taken in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, officials said. The teeth came from at least two individuals, SOHS concluded after studying the material.

400 funerary objects In addition to the teeth, there were nearly 400 associated funerary objects, most of which were shells or beads, according to the notice in the federal register. The funerary items were “reasonably believed” to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony, the notice stated. A study by archaeologist Ted Goebel, an assistant professor of anthropology at Southern Oregon University, determined the remains were American Indian. The study also noted that a “relationship of shared group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American human remains and any present-day Indian tribe.” However, there was credible evidence indicating the site where the items were found is the aboriginal land of the Grand Ronde confederated tribes, it concluded. Meanwhile, Reuwsaat noted it is illegal to disturb a human burial site. “If anyone finds a human burial site, they should leave it alone and don’t pick up anything,” she stressed. “They should mark the location discreetly, then notify the nearest authority. But the most important thing is to leave it alone.”

Heatstroke deaths prompt new high school rules

Bend resident Renee Metivier Baillie captured the women’s victory in the USA Track & Field 20K Championships on Monday at the New Haven Road Race in New Haven, Conn. Metivier Baillie, 30, covered the 12.4-mile course in 1 hour, 7 minutes, 8 seconds, defeating runner-up Molly Pritz, of Rochester Hills, Mich., by 13 seconds. Stephanie Rothstein, of Flagstaff, Ariz., took third place in 1:07:59. Another Oregonian, 2012 Olympian and Portland resident Matt Tegenkamp, won the men’s title in 58:30, defeating former University of Oregon standout Luke Puskedra, who was second in 58:48. Metivier Baillie and Tegenkamp earned $9,000 apiece for their titles. Metivier Baillie is training for the 2012 Chicago Marathon, which will be her debut at the 26.2-mile distance. That race is scheduled for Oct. 7.

Off-road triathlon enthusiasts, David Cloninger, left, and Bruce Rogers, before a practice at Suttle Lake near Sisters, are two of the many world-class athletes that would like a Central Oregon event.

WALLA WALLA, Wash. — Culver cowboy Bobby Mote notched a victory in his specialty, bareback riding, at the 2012 Walla Walla Fair & Frontier Days Rodeo. The threeday rodeo concluded Sunday at the Walla Walla Fairgrounds. Mote, a four-time world bareback champion, rode Redheaded Stepchild to a score of 86 points to top the field in Walla Walla and earn a first-place paycheck of $2,636.25. Also at the Walla Walla rodeo, Terrebonne’s Russell Cardoza tied for third place in the second go-round of the tie-down roping competition. His time of 7.5 seconds was good for $817.34. —Bulletin staff report

GOLF McIlroy takes Deutsche title Golfer from Northern Ireland starts quick, hangs on for win, D3

MARIETTA, Ga. — The August afternoon was a merciful one. The sky above Marietta High School was overcast, and by 3:30 p.m., temperatures hovered in the low 80s as football practice began. Still, like high school football coaches all over Georgia, Marietta’s coaches were leaving little to chance. Responsible for the health of the 100 students on the field, athletic trainer Jeff Hopp stood by a $2,500 sophisticated temperature gauge on the sidelines to measure the heat, humidity and solar radiation. He set up water stations and every 15 minutes or so coaches made the athletes stop and drink. On the pavement above the fields, Hopp opened a white canopy, and under it, he set up a large black plastic bathtub filled with water and ice. If a player showed signs of heatstroke, the tub would be his first stop before an ambulance arrived. Since the mid-1990s, summer football practice, especially the preseason tradition of two sessions a day, has turned more dangerous for high school athletes. From 1994 to 2009, the average number of high school football players who died every year from heatstroke tripled to three from one in the preceding 15-year period, according to a recent analysis of high school heat-related deaths. Last year, seven boys died. See Heatstroke / D5

lot of participation sports enjoy an enthusiastic following in Central Oregon, including skiing, snowboarding, swimming, and even paddle sports such as stand-up paddleboarding. Also, of course — and perhaps most popular of all: running and cycling. Given the popularity of running and cycling in our area, and the proximity to and number of local mountain bike/running trails, off-road triathlon seems like a sport that could generate some healthy interest in Central Oregon. But that is not quite the case. Though the region is home to some standout competitors in the sport, participation numbers are not as high as might be expected, and one race trying to get started here is struggling to gain traction. “Once I found off-road triathlon, it really fit with the mountain biking, just the venues,” says Bruce Rogers, a 45-year-old Bend resident and frequent off-road triathlon participant.

Roger Federer is interviewed after a win in New York, on Friday. For Federer, the media gauntlet after a match is often longer and more intense than what happened on the court.

Federer is at his busiest after a match By Greg Bishop New York Times News Service

NEW YORK — The questions started almost as soon as Roger Federer’s last match ended, same as always, the news media gantlet often longer and more intense than what happened on the court. On Saturday, after Federer dispatched Fernando Verdasco in about two hours, after he tossed his wristbands into the stands and put away his rackets, the first of more than a dozen microphones settled inches from his face, on court. For a player perhaps interviewed more than anyone else in tennis history, interviewed more, perhaps, than any other athlete, the routine had started. See Federer / D5

S   B Football • Virginia Tech edges Georgia Tech in OT: Cody Journell kicked a 17-yard field goal in overtime and No. 16 Virginia Tech beat Georgia Tech 20-17 in Blacksburg, Va., on Monday night. Georgia Tech got the ball first in overtime, but quarterback Tevin Washington threw an interception. Washington’s 10-yard touchdown pass with 44 seconds left in regulation had given the Yellow Jackets a 17-14 lead. The Hokies got runs of 6 and 18 yards on their first two plays from Michael Holmes, before Journell came back out and kept the Hokies from another crushing loss in a big early game. • Purdue football to honor Neil Armstrong on helmets: Purdue’s football team will honor one of the school’s most famous graduates, Neil Armstrong, with a new sticker on its helmets. The decision was announced Monday and comes after coach Danny Hope shared stories of the astronaut following Armstrong’s death Aug. 25. Fifth-year receiver Tommie Thomas then requested the team do something to honor the first man to walk on the moon.

Armstrong era is worthless By John Leicester The Associated Press

PARIS — t surely would have been more useful for his sport if Tyler Hamilton hadn’t waited until this week to tell us what he knows about doping in the Lance Armstrong era. But, on the other hand, better late than never. Because Hamilton, a former Tour de France teammate and later rival of Armstrong’s, knows more than most. His dope-and-tell book set for release Wednesday is important not so much because of what Hamilton tells us about Armstrong’s own alleged doping but because — like ex-doper David Millar’s biography last year — it smashes the code of silence that cyclists of their era lived by and kept their rampant drug-taking largely hidden from public view for far too long. Both Hamilton and Millar’s books should sober up those opinion-makers who have developed a ho-hum attitude to doping in sports, and especially those who argue that since it cannot be eradicated, perhaps it should be accepted and even legalized. Why continue to spend taxpayers’ money trying to catch dopers and unmask people like Armstrong? If athletes want to pour poison into their veins, let them. Why should we care? How ridiculous. Criminal even. Anyone in his right mind should conclude that anti-doping efforts must be redoubled, not abandoned, compromised or sniffed at, after reading Millar and now Hamilton explain in their own words the horrors they experienced. Not merely the injections. Those, after all, are simply the mundane practicalities of doping. No, most shocking in both their accounts is how they concluded separately that they had no choice but to dope, that cycling was so rife with drug-taking that the only way for them to continue and to succeed in the sport was to become rotten, too. That is what the legalizers and the shoulder shruggers don’t get. If doping were permitted or largely ignored, in other words if we all didn’t care, then all athletes with an ounce of ambition would have to do it. Giving them freedom to dope or looking the other way would, in effect, mean they have no freedom at all. Spending millions on anti-doping is worthwhile not only to catch some if not all dopers but, perhaps more important, so that the majority of other athletes can feel that they don’t necessarily have to dope to win. It’s protection money. In “The Secret Race,” Hamilton recounts that it took him about 1,000 days of riding clean as a rookie professional to reach the opposite conclusion, to cave in and take drugs to keep up with the other riders who were doping. He started by swallowing a capsule of testosterone — “a tiny red egg” — and later graduated to injecting the hormone EPO and storing and transfusing bags of his own blood to boost his endurance, performance and recovery. “Yes or no. In or out. Everybody has their thousand days; everybody has their choice,”

Rory McIlroy tees off on the fourth hole during the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., Monday. McIlroy shot a 67 for a one-shot victory.

McIlroy wins Deutsche Bank By Doug Ferguson The Associated Press

NORTON, Mass. — Rory McIlroy got the start he wanted Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, erasing a three-shot deficit in just five holes. The finish was hardly a masterpiece, except for the part when golf’s No. 1 player posed with the trophy. Boy Wonder didn’t make it easy on himself on Labor Day at the TPC Boston. He tore up the turf on a tee shot that traveled 170 yards, and that was the only fairway he hit over the last five holes. He had to make a 6-foot putt to save par from a bunker, and a 5-foot putt to save bogey after a pitch sailed from one side of the green to the other. And he had to wait as Louis Oosthuizen’s birdie putt to force a playoff slid below the hole. “I had a couple of wobbles coming in, but I obviously did enough and I’m very excited to get a victory,” McIlroy said. That’s all anyone will remember. On a leaderboard packed with some of the biggest names in golf — McIlroy, Oosthuizen, Tiger Woods,

Woods tops $100 million in earnings NORTON, Mass. — Tiger Woods has become the first $100 million man on the PGA Tour. Woods finished third in the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday to earn $544,000 and push his career total to $100,350,700. Next on the list is Phil Mickelson — more than $30 million behind at $66,805,498 after finishing fourth at the TPC Boston. “The purse increase helps,” Woods said after a final-round 66 left him two strokes behind winner Rory McIlroy in the second week of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff. “I won fewer tournaments than Sam Snead has, but obviously he was in a different era. It’s just that we happened to time it up right and happened to play well when the purses really had a nice spike up.” Snead, the career leader with 82 PGA Tour victories, earned just $620,126 in a career that started in 1937. His biggest prize was $28,000 for a second-place finish in Milwaukee in 1968, and for most of his prime he played in tournaments with a total purse — that’s all the payouts combined — of less than $100,000. — The Associated Press

Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson — the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland took a giant leap toward establishing himself as the best in the game. With four birdies in six holes at the start, and limiting the damage from his mistakes at the end, McIlroy closed with a 4-under 67 for a one-shot victory over Oosthuizen, joining Woods as the

only three-time winners this year on the PGA Tour. McIlroy goes to No. 1 in the FedEx Cup. And with one of his wins being the PGA Championship, that might be enough for his peers to vote him PGA Tour player of the year. He also has a comfortable gap in the world ranking, and could be tough to catch the rest of the year unless Woods were to win the next

two FedEx Cup events. “He’s not No. 1 in the world for nothing,” Oosthuizen said. “He’s a great young talent, a lot of majors left for him to win. He’s such a cool kid on the course. It’s great playing with him. He makes tough shots look really easy sometimes, especially long irons. “I don’t think the back nine he hit the ball that great after what he did on the front nine, but he did what he had to do.” The cool kid — McIlroy — keeps winning. The Honda Classic in March. The record eight-shot win in the PGA Championship. And now a FedEx Cup playoff event in Boston. “Three is a great number,” McIlroy said. “I’d like to make it four — or five — after the FedEx Cup.” Phil Mickelson also had a 66 and tied for fourth, along with Dustin Johnson, who had a 70 and likely played his way onto the Ryder Cup team. Brandt Snedeker made a strong case for a captain’s pick with a 65-67 weekend to finish sixth. Davis Love III will announce his four picks today in New York.

Still no talks between league, union NFL

By Barry Wilner The Associated Press

NEW YORK — Officially — at least in their comments — NFL players and coaches aren’t concerning themselves with refereering. The NFL and its locked-out officials weren’t talking two days before the season begins, a clear indication replacements will be on the field for Wednesday night’s opener. Doesn’t matter, according to many of the guys who call the plays or carry them out. “We’re going to play the

games regardless,” Chargers All-Pro safety Eric Weddle said Monday. “Everyone makes mistakes. I make mistakes. It’s just the way human nature is. You can’t get hard on guys that are trying to do the best they can. You’ve just got to deal with it. “Each week, each game, each practice, they’ll get better, so it’s not a concern of ours. Regardless, we’ve got to go out there and execute and take it out of their hands. Let’s

go out and play good football, execute at a high level and then they won’t be in position to throw flags and make judgment calls.” Both sides met for three days last week, but did not reach an agreement to end the three-month lockout. The replacement officials who worked the preseason games amid much criticism will handle the Cowboys at Giants opener and the other 15 games on the weekend. The league and the NFL Referees Association, which

covers more than 120 on-field officials, are at odds over salary, retirement benefits and operational issues. The NFL has said its offer includes annual pay increases that could earn an experienced official more than $200,000 annually by 2018. The NFLRA has disputed the value of the proposal, insisting it would ultimately reduce their compensation. With the stalemate, the NFL will use replacements in the regular season for the first time since the opening week of 2001, days after 9/11.

Hamilton says. Millar, too, resisted for a while, riding clean in this same era of cycling with two speeds, where those who doped overpowered holdouts who, for whatever reason, didn’t. In “Racing Through The Dark,” Millar says that by 2001 he, too, “accepted that it was easier to dope than not to dope.” Jonathan Vaughters, another former teammate of Armstrong’s, says he doped because it was either that or renounce his dream of riding the Tour de France in this era when cycling’s rules against doping were dead letters, largely unenforced or unenforceable because a test for EPO wasn’t validated until 2000 and because then, as now, there was no single test to spot self-transfusions. “When I was racing in the 1990s and early 2000s, the rules were easily circumvented by any and all and if you wanted to be competitive, you first had to keep up,” Vaughters wrote this August in The New York Times. “This environment is what we must continuously work to prevent from ever surfacing again. It destroys dreams. It destroys people. It destroys our finest athletes.” Hamilton’s accounts of doping with Armstrong when they rode together for the U.S. Postal team are the headline generators for his book. Armstrong points to hundreds of drug tests he says he passed in arguing that he won his record seven Tour titles legitimately. Readers can make up their own minds whom to believe. The gruesome details of Hamilton’s doping also make his book a page turner. Hamilton recounts, for instance, how he urinated blood at the 2004 Tour after poisoning himself with a transfusion of blood that had been improperly stored and gone bad. And, for both Millar and Hamilton, success while doping seems to have brought little or zero satisfaction. “While you smiled on the surface, underneath you squirmed,” Hamilton writes. “The more I doped, the more I hated cycling,” says Millar. “I may have been able to win bigger races but I’d never felt less joy in doing so.” How sad. Cycling’s governing body, the UCI, must now decide whether to endorse the decision by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour victories and all his other race results since Aug. 1, 1998, following its assertions that he doped and conspired with others to conceal it. Hamilton was among those USADA interviewed. Whether the UCI has the stomach to put the boot into Armstrong remains to be seen. But, ultimately, whether it accepts USADA’s findings or not seems less important than the bigger picture that Millar, Vaughters, disgraced 2006 Tour winner Floyd Landis and now Hamilton have belatedly revealed to us — that the sport was putrid. That era is worthless. It would have been better if Hamilton had told us the truth at the time. But at least we know now.


IndyCar and NASCAR manage to keep the drama rolling on By Jenna Fryer The Associated Press


s he clung to his championship chances, Ryan Hunter-Reay was able to see past his selfish motives to the bigger picture. He knew if he didn’t close the gap on points leader Will Power, there would be no title race in the IndyCar season finale. That, Hunter-Reay understood, would be terrible for a series that’s trying hard to stay relevant on the U.S. sports scene. “I want it for IndyCar,” HunterReay said last week, after a late-race incident at Sonoma cost him a podium finish and 23 critical points in his race with Power. “The fans deserve to see a championship race, and the series needs a good title race. I really want that for IndyCar.” He knew his only chance to make it a fight was to win Sunday at Baltimore to close his 36-point deficit to Power. So he woke up Sunday and changed his breakfast routine, look-

ing to change his luck with a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal. Power could have wrapped up his first IndyCar championship Sunday. Instead, Hunter-Reay’s fourth win of the season has made it a 17-point race headed into the Sept. 15 season finale at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. “We still have a shot,” said HunterReay, who responded on the podium to chants of “U.S.A! U.S.A!” by draping himself in the American flag. He’s seeking to become the first American to win the IndyCar championship since Sam Hornish Jr. in 2006. All sports thrive on drama. Fans don’t gush about lopsided football games, series sweeps or runaway race wins. What captures the imagination is those Game 7-type moments, tension between competitors, even an exploding jet dryer. So those with a vested interest understand that Power’s plight to finally win a title is compelling, but if

the Australian finally pulls it off, they preferred he didn’t get it done a race before the finale. It’s no different in NASCAR, where series leaders in 2004 introduced the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format and have tweaked it several times since. There’s a rhythm to the 10-race Chase, and its momentum begins to build in earnest during the summer months when drivers jockey for one of the 12 spots in the field. It all comes to a head in the 26th race of the season, considered to be the “regular season” finale, when the field is officially set. In an interest to, well, keep it interesting, NASCAR last year turned the last two slots in the field into wild-card berths. The tweak has worked to perfection as the race to Richmond can be just as exciting as the actual Chase. Nearly seven hours after HunterReay ensured IndyCar maintained some late-season drama, NASCAR

locked down its own share in Atlanta. When Jeff Gordon failed to chase down Denny Hamlin in the closing laps of Sunday night’s race, it meant eight drivers go into Richmond battling for two Chase positions. Some big names will be left on the sidelines next Saturday night. Four-time NASCAR champion Gordon and Carl Edwards, who lost last year’s championship on a tiebreaker, are both in danger of missing the Chase. Same goes for perennial title favorite Kyle Busch. Gordon believes Saturday night in Richmond will be wild. “That race is always intense,” he said. “But when you look at how many guys have to win the points and everything else, I mean, it’s going to be a pretty crazy night.” He lamented not bumping Hamlin out of the way on the final restart, a move that could have given him a win that would have greatly improved his Chase chances. And Gordon prom-

ised not to make that mistake in Richmond, “it’s not going to happen twice,” he vowed. It’s anything goes from here on out as the stakes are at their highest for both the competitors and their series. Hunter-Reay was unapologetic for an aggressive late restart that won him the race. Power and others complained he jumped the start, but Hunter-Reay was adamant he did nothing wrong and he had a win to show for his efforts. And Power had a tongue-in-cheek strategy for making sure he leaves Fontana in two weeks with the title. “Good news is, if I take HunterReay out in the last race, we crash out together, I win,” Power said. Sure, he was joking. But just like Gordon’s pledge to be aggressive Saturday night in Richmond, Power hinting he’ll do whatever it takes means both NASCAR and IndyCar have the needed drama down to the wire.

National League roundup

• Orioles 4, Blue Jays 0: TORONTO — Joe Saunders and three relievers combined on a three-hitter and charging Baltimore blanked Toronto, cutting its AL East deficit to one game. • Rays 4, Yankees 3: ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — James Shields pitched eight strong innings to outlast CC Sabathia and light-hitting Chris Gimenez drove in two runs, helping Tampa Bay beat New York. The Yankees, who led by 10 games earlier this summer, had their edge cut to one game by Baltimore, which beat Toronto 4-0. The Rays moved within 2 1⁄2 games of New York. • Indians 3, Tigers 2: DETROIT — Asdrubal Cabrera’s tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning lifted Cleveland to a win over Detroit, giving right-hander Corey Kluber his first career victory. • Rangers 8, Royals 4: KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Yu Darvish retired the first 17 batters, Texas hit five home runs and the Rangers beat Kansas City. • Angels 8, Athletics 3: OAKLAND, Calif. — Chris Iannetta hit a two-run homer in a three-hit day, Vernon Wells had a solo shot and RBI single, and Los Angeles snapped Oakland’s season-best nine-game winning streak. • Mariners 4, Red Sox 1: SEATTLE — Jason Vargas pitched seven solid innings and Seattle sent Boston to its season-worst seventh straight loss. • White Sox 4, Twins 2: CHICAGO — Gordon Beckham hit a two-run homer and Hector Santiago won in his first major league start as Chicago beat Minnesota. After falling out of sole possession of first place in the AL Central on Sunday night following a 1-6 road trip and being swept by the Tigers, the White Sox won the first of a 10-game homestand. They moved a game up on Detroit, which lost to Cleveland 3-2.

• Nationals 2, Cubs 1: WASHINGTON — Ross Detwiler allowed four hits in seven shutout innings and Adam LaRoche homered, giving Washington its first winning season with a victory over Chicago. The NL East-leading Nationals improved to 82-52. The club moved from Montreal to Washington for the 2005 season and went 81-81 that year. • Phillies 4, Reds 2: CINCINNATI — Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer off Johnny Cueto during a cloudburst that sent fans scurrying for cover, leading Philadelphia over Cincinnati. • Giants 9, Diamondbacks 8: SAN FRANCISCO — Marco Scutaro hit an RBI single in the 10th inning after Buster Posey’s tying double in the ninth as San Francisco rallied to beat Arizona. • Astros 5, Pirates 1: PITTSBURGH — Brett Wallace had three hits, including a three-run homer, to lift Houston past struggling Pittsburgh. • Cardinals 5, Mets 4: ST. LOUIS — Rookie Joe Kelly pitched 6 2⁄3 effective innings and also doubled, and St. Louis held off New York. • Braves 6, Rockies 1: ATLANTA — Kris Medlen struck out a career-high 12 to lead Atlanta over Colorado. Medlen (7-1) allowed five hits without a walk in his second complete game of the season. He extended his streak of scoreless innings to 34 2⁄3 — the Braves’ longest since Greg Maddux in 2000 — before the Rockies scored an unearned run in the seventh. • Marlins 7, Brewers 3: MIAMI — Jose Reyes drove in three runs and Miami snapped a four-game losing streak with a victory over Milwaukee. • Dodgers 4, Padres 3: LOS ANGELES — A.J. Ellis singled in the winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning, giving Los Angeles a win over San Diego for the Dodgers second consecutive walk-off win.

Ducks strive to balance playing time By Anne M. Peterson The Associated Press

EUGENE — With fifthranked Oregon heavily favored in its nonconference schedule, Ducks coach Chip Kelly must strike a balance between playing his starters and giving his backups valuable live-game experience. In the opener against Arkansas State, most of the Ducks’ first team was watching from the sidelines by halftime after Oregon built a 50-10 lead. The reserves showed they could use some work when the Red Wolves found some soft spots to close the final margin to 5734 on Saturday night. “It’s that fine line of making sure we’re getting better and starting to grow,” Kelly said. “And you don’t want to get guys hurt.” Oregon hosts Fresno State on Saturday and Tennessee Tech on Sept. 15 before kicking off the Pac-12 schedule against Arizona at Autzen Stadium on Sept. 22. The Ducks don’t play their first game on the road until Sept. 29 at Washington State. Redshirt freshman Marcus Mariota worked less than a half against Arkansas State, but threw for 200 yards and three touchdowns. It was his college debut after playing on the practice squad last season. Sophomore De’Anthony Thomas had 125 all-purpose yards, catching two touchdowns and rushing for one. Senior Kenjon Barner ran for 66 yards and two scores. Bryan Bennett, who appeared to be on track to be the Ducks’ starting quarterback after backing up Darron Thomas last season, lost the job to Mariota in camp. Against the Red Wolves he relieved Mariota, completing 10 of 17 passes for 108 yards and touchdown and an interception. Arkansas State outscored the Ducks 24-7 in the second half. And Red Wolves senior quarterback Ryan Aplin finished with 304 yards passing and three touchdowns against the Ducks. Barner said he didn’t hold the Ducks’ reserves at fault. Rather, the whole team needs to be more consistent, he said. “Depth has always been a question from the media’s standpoint about us. But we always laugh at that because we know our depth, we know what we have and we see it during practice. Depth is not an issue for us.” Certainly, if there were any questions about Mariota’s ability to lead the Ducks, they were dispelled. The young quarterback from Hawaii completed 18 of 22 passes and was intercepted once. He led the Ducks to touchdowns on their first seven drives before he left with 7:06 left before halftime. “He’s just a great player,” De’Anthony Thomas said. “He’s a smart quarterback and he makes good decisions.” Darron Thomas passed for 2,761 yards and a schoolrecord 33 touchdowns last season when the Ducks went 10-2 and beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. Bennett was Thomas’ backup last season, completing 25 of 46 passes for 369 yards and six touchdowns, including a start in a victory over Colorado when Thomas was out with a sprained knee. Mariota emerged in the spring game, throwing for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 99 yards and two scores — including an 82yard scoring run. “That kid looked pretty good didn’t he?” asked senior offensive lineman Carson York asked with a smile. “He was drilling them tonight. I remember seeing Darron’s (Thomas) first starts and how happy and excited he was after plays. Marcus was having the time of his life out there tonight and jumping around. He was very excited.”



Williamsrollsintoquarters By Howard Fendrich The Associated Press

NEW YORK — It didn’t take long for Serena Williams to show her fourth-round opponent at the U.S. Open where things were headed. “The first point of the whole match,” 82nd-ranked Andrea Hlavackova explained, “when I served, and she returned, like, a 100 mph forehand return, I was like, ‘OK, I know who I’m playing. You don’t have to prove it to me. I know.’ ” Monday’s match was less than 15 seconds old. It might as well have been over. Dominant from the moment she ripped that return of an 88 mph second serve, forcing Hlavackova into an out-of-control backhand that sailed well long, to the moment she powered a 116 mph service winner on the last point, Williams extended her 2½month stretch of excellence with a 6-0, 6-0 victory to get to the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows. Those two big zeros pretty much tell the story; it’s the fifth time in her career Williams won with what’s commonly called a “double bagel.” Some other impressive numbers: Williams won 60 of 89 points, built a 31-9 edge in winners and improved to 23-1 since losing in the first round of the French Open. That run includes singles and doubles titles at both Wimbledon and the London Olympics. Hlavackova knows this act all too well: She and Lucie Hradecka were the doubles runners-up at both of those events. Not that those 2-on-2 encounters helped prepare for the 1-on-1 match in Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday. “Singles is completely different,” said Hlavackova, who chose the phrase “What can you do”? more than once when analyzing what it’s like to face 14-time major champion Williams. “My coach warned me to not go on the court and play for a score,” Hlavackova said, by which she meant just trying to keep it as close as possible. “I was in the match. I was trying to figure out how to win. And when it was, like, 6-love, 4-love, 30-love, I was thinking, ‘Well, I’m not playing for a score, but one game wouldn’t hurt.’ ” Oh, well.

Federer Continued from D1 It lasted until 7:30 p.m., or longer than his tennis match, as Federer conducted a series of television and radio interviews and two news conferences. He answered questions in three languages. He changed outfits. He took inquiries in rooms and hallways, at the players’ garden and on television sets. He gave answers standing up and sitting down and leaning backward. “I’ve done so many interviews over the years in so many different languages,” Federer said afterward, in an interview about his interviews. “Radios. Papers. Magazines. There’s always another interview to do. It’s quite something, I have to say.” The news media carwash started on-court Saturday, when Federer did two interviews, one for an in-stadium feed, another for Swiss television. Both outlets asked three questions. It was 5:17 p.m. There are rules involved in who speaks with Federer on court. The host broadcaster — CBS, ESPN or the Tennis Channel at the U.S. Open, the BBC at Wimbledon — has top priority, followed by national rights holders, followed by other requests. When Federer finished those commitments Saturday, he hustled down the corridor at Arthur Ashe Stadium and into the locker room. He changed shirts, albeit into the same sky blue Nike top he wore against Verdasco. Then, escorted by two security guards, he rushed onto the CBS set. Federer settled into a chair. An assistant affixed another microphone. He crossed his legs and clasped his hands and looked as comfortable as the on-air talent. He deftly turned a question back on his interviewers, with a “like you mentioned,” to begin one response. The interview finished. The fans behind the railing screamed. Federer waved. Another assistant asked him to take a picture. He obliged, then bounded down the stairs and back into the tunnels. As he walked, Federer discussed his obligations with his

Serena Williams reacts after winning her match against Andrea Hlavackova in the fourth round of play at the U.S. Open Monday in New York. Williams won, 6-0, 6-0.

Next for the fourth-seeded Williams, who won the U.S. Open in 1999, 2002 and 2008, is a match against former No. 1 Ana Ivanovic, who reached a Grand Slam quarterfinal for the first time since winning the 2008 French Open by defeating 55thranked Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria 6-0, 6-4. No. 1-seeded Roger Federer, owner of a record 17 Grand Slam titles, including five at the U.S. Open, got some extra rest Monday, because his fourth-round opponent, 23rd-seeded Mardy Fish of the United States, withdrew hours before their scheduled match for precautionary reasons, citing medical advice. The man Federer beat in July’s Wimbledon final and lost to in August’s Olympic final, Andy Murray, muted 15th-seeded Mi-

los Raonic’s big serve and won 64, 6-4, 6-2 Monday night to reach an eighth consecutive major quarterfinal. “Today was by far my best match of the tournament,” Murray concluded. No. 3 Murray will play No. 12 Marin Cilic of Croatia, who put together a 7-5, 6-4, 6-0 victory over 50th-ranked Martin Klizan of Slovakia, the last left-hander and unseeded man remaining. Murray has won six of seven matches against Cilic over their careers, but the lone loss came at the U.S. Open in 2009. Federer now faces No. 6 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic, who eliminated No. 11 Nicolas Almagro of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-1. Berdych stunned Federer in the 2010 Wimbledon quarterfinals on the way to reaching the final.

agent, Tony Godsick, and an ATP employee. Federer wanted to push some interviews to Sunday. Another player passed him in the hallway. Federer congratulated him and continued to talk news media strategy without breaking stride. He turned left into the locker room, where he showered and changed and decided to hold his news conferences at 6 p.m. The process required a high level of coordination, more than a dozen handlers and producers and reporters, enough people to land an airplane, or run an NFL offense. In the most important way, Federer’s performance already answered the most pertinent questions. He looked sharp, same as when he won Wimbledon and made the Olympic final. Yet he still needed to explain the nuances of his afternoon. The conferences started on time, English first, Swiss news media afterward, their questions delivered in Swiss-German, German and French. Federer said he was always asked for general thoughts and to rate himself on a scale of 1 to 10. He took both those questions again Saturday. The repetitive nature of the questions can be difficult. When Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic ascended to No. 1, Federer took hundreds of questions about when he would retire, if he would ever win again. He answered those inquiries in multiple languages for years, not months. “I always joke with him,” Godsick said. “It’s good you don’t speak Italian.” On Saturday, at the English portion of his news conference, reporters asked about social media, net points, Davis Cup participation, Nadal’s absence, tough moments in his career, doubles, memories of previous Opens, pressure and whether he had a cold. His answers were analytical, thoughtful and specific. For a simple question on game management, Federer gave a long, insightful answer. He noted how he was always in the limelight, how nothing went unnoticed and how he was not aware of that early in his career. He later dismissed a question

about how his Olympic doubles experience helped his singles play — “Oh, no. I only played two matches,” he said — but then launched into a dissertation on the benefits he gained from playing doubles early in his career. He even laughed off the cold question. “No, just a lot of air conditioning in this country,” he said. Most professional tennis players spend 20 to 30 minutes taking questions following their matches. Federer is rarely done in less than an hour. He is almost always asked about Nadal, or his twin daughters, or what motivates him after a record 17 Grand Slam singles titles. After each major tournament championship, he does more than three hours of interviews, then talk shows the next morning. “Can you lose a language, so we don’t have to wait so long outside?” other players often joke. Because his mother is South African and he grew up in Switzerland, Federer is most comfortable with English and Swiss-German. He learned French at 14. “Sometimes, I am a different character in different languages,” he said. “I have different enjoyment from them. Sometimes, different answers come out of me. Like, I didn’t even know that about me. I get to know myself through different languages, actually.” After the news conference, roughly 20 questions in 27 minutes, Federer sped back through the tunnel Saturday. He conducted three radio interviews on the way to the Tennis Channel set. There, the wind blew overhead. Trees swayed. Cameras moved. Producers pointed. Federer, amid the chaos, appeared typically unruffled. He made his way next into the player garden, where Bernhard Schaer, a radio reporter from SR DRS in Switzerland who has covered Federer since his first tournament in 1998, watched another interview. “He thinks everybody has the right to talk with him,” Schaer said. “He will be fair, polite, intelligent, creative. He will give concrete examples. That’s why I love him. He knows what I want.”

Continued from D1 Research suggests that two factors are converging to increase mortality: rising obesity among high school football players and hotter, more humid summers as the climate changes. And while Hurricane Isaac drenched other parts of the South this week, it brought little relief in Marietta, where thunderstorms were offset by temperatures that stayed in the high 80s. Recognition is growing of the potentially profound health effects of climate change. Tropical diseases are spreading north from their normal geography. In Maine, public health officials are seeing Lyme disease more often, as the warmer summers make northern New England more hospitable for ticks. In climate adaptation plans, states such as California have included public health initiatives, including opening more air-conditioned cooling stations. Georgia has had the most deaths of any state among high school football players, with eight from 1994 to 2011. Now, along with six other states, Georgia has issued practice plans to avoid heat exertion that all high school football teams must follow or face sanctions. The new rules call for teams to acclimatize players to the heat, as opposed to the old approach of drilling hard from the start of preseason, often for four hours a day and in full pads. The new rules in Georgia, Arkansas and elsewhere do not mention climate change, but they amount to a detailed response to a public health problem exacerbated by rising temperatures. The rules show how communities can adapt to climate change, even without overtly acknowledging it, once they understand what’s at stake. “You can discuss the new rules as player safety, because if you bring up climate change, all of a sudden, it becomes political,” said Andrew Grundstein, lead author of the football mortality study and professor of geography at University of Georgia. “But as a climatologist, I’m really pleased that states are starting to implement the rules because as you start seeing more hot days, I think it’s smart policy.” In Georgia, coaches prefer not to discuss climate change. But to Patti James of Little Rock, Ark., the heatstroke her son Will suffered in August 2010, during a three-week stretch of 100-degree days, drove home new realities. “We got the clue that every summer is going to be really hot,” James said, adding that there have been more than 24 days with 100-degree temperatures in Arkansas this year. “This is becoming the norm in the South, and we can’t do what we did 40 years ago. I’m so tired of old men coming up to me and saying, ‘We never got to drink water when I played football.’ ” Two days after Will James collapsed at his school, another 16-year-old, Tyler Davenport, crumpled during football practice in the small town of Lamar, Ark. The boys were brought to the same hospital in Little Rock, where the families got to know each other. Both boys had liver damage and were put in medically induced comas. Will survived. Eight weeks after the day his body temperature shot up to 108.5 degrees, Tyler died. “When I say my son had heatstroke, people nod. But when I say he was on dialysis for three weeks and a coma for a week, people are like, ‘What?’ ” James said. “There’s got to be education on all fronts.” The recent push for new football practice rules has emerged after the deaths of players and the publication of research like Grundstein’s. His study shows that from 1980 to 2009, most of the 58 deaths occurred in the Southeast, where heat and humidity form an oppressive mix. Athletes died mostly during morning practices, considered safer because of the relative coolness. But humidity is higher then. The nearly 2-degree rise in global temperatures since the late 19th century has contributed to “roughly 7 percent higher absolute humidity,” said Steven Sherwood, director of the Climate Change Research Center at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. “This means that a 1-degree temperature rise from global warming will have as much effect on athletes training in very humid conditions as would a 3- or 4-degree rise from normal weather variations,” Sherwood said. The majority of the students who died were linemen, who tend to be overweight. And they died during the first week of preseason practice, usually in August, when most students are immediately thrown into two-a-day practices, running hours of plays in helmets and full pads, ostensibly to identify the fittest, most tenacious athletes. “Football is a tough sport, but these kids aren’t coming into the preseason as fit as you think they are, and they’re not as acclimated to heat and uniforms,” said Michael Bergeron, executive director of the National Youth Sports Health & Safety Institute and professor of pediatrics at the University of South Dakota. “You can’t condition someone in a hurry, but you can hurt them a lot in one workout.” The National Football League and the National Collegiate Athletic Assn. adopted rules to reduce heat exertion years ago, but high school sports lack a national organization with enforcement authority. As a result, high school reforms happen state by state, often coach by coach, said Douglas Casa, chief operating officer at the University of Connecticut’s Korey Stringer Institute, named after the NFL player who died of heatstroke in 2001. “It’s a long, grueling process with the states because you run up against this idea about practices that ‘This is the way we’ve always done it and we don’t want to change the way we do it,’ ” Casa said. The Korey Stringer Institute worked with Arkansas, Georgia and the five other states to develop their rules. Coaches sign on when they discover that everyone must adhere to the same standards, so that no one gains a competitive advantage. The new rules in Georgia change but do not abolish preseason practices in high heat and humidity. They require high school football programs to acclimatize players in preseason. If schools hold two practices on one day, they can hold only one practice the next day. Desmond Bobbett, watching his son practice at Marietta, said he was pleased with Georgia’s new rules. “Even if you’re in shape, the heat is a different animal,” Bobbett said, as his son raced back and forth with teammates on the field. “I don’t think this is coddling at all. There is no such thing as too safe when it comes to making sure kids don’t die.”



Off-road Continued from D1 “And there’s something about the earth part of it versus the concrete part of it, where you’re swimming in the lake, you bike on this trail with trees around you, and you run on this same trail,� Rogers added. Unfortunately, Rogers will not be able to race in an off-road triathlon — which takes to dirt roads and trails for the mountain bike and run legs, rather than the roads — close to home this year: Xterra Central Oregon had been scheduled to take place this Saturday at Suttle Lake northwest of Sisters, but in mid-August, the race was called off due to low registration numbers. “The plan anyway was to keep it nice and casual, don’t really go too big with advertising or anything like that, and just try to have one year happen, get a year under my belt, and then year two, really go for it and try to build it into what it could be,� says Matt Plummer, the Xterra Central Oregon race director. “And just as it turned out, that first casual year, not going to happen.� Plummer decided to postpone the race on Aug. 16, a little more than three weeks out from race day. At that point, he says, only 21 individuals had registered for the event.


“I was very confident that it (turnout) was going to increase, but I didn’t have the confidence in it increasing to a number that would bring me out of this in an OK situation,� Plummer says of the 2012 event. “I don’t have the funds from the previous year to kind of carry me through.� So now Plummer is aiming for a race date in late August 2013, depending on confirmation from the U.S. Forest Service. And instead of having a single race, as was the plan this year, he says he expects to offer long-course (1.5-kilometer swim, 30K bike, 12K run) and short-course (1K swim, 15K bike, 6K run) races next year, the swims taking place in Suttle Lake, the bike legs on Cache Mountain, and the run legs on a trail around the lake. As with Xterra Central Oregon, many off-road triathlons belong to the Xterra family of events. Xterra stages off-road triathlons around the world and also holds U.S. and world championship races, which for 2012 will take place in Utah and Hawaii in the coming weeks. The International Triathlon Union has also started to get involved and offered its second Cross Triathlon World Championships this past May in Pelham, Ala., where Bend resident David Cloninger placed third in the men’s 40-44 division.

“Every course is so different — I mean, wildly different,� says Cloninger, an off-road triathlon veteran, about the variety found in the sport. “It seems like the road tris (triathlons) I’ve done, they’re all different, different scenery, but it’s kind of the same, too, more so than Xterra. The Xterras, some can be flat, twisty, windy, rocky, rooty. Others can be dusty, lots of climbing and descending. Some can be at the beach, some can be at the mountains, but the surface changes all the time, whereas on a road tri, the surface is pretty much the same.� Cloninger, 43 and a land surveyor, and Rogers, who works in insurance claims, both race for Hutch’s Bicycles and do some training together. Cloninger can list a number of additional Central Oregon residents who occasionally race off-road triathlons, but the local off-road tri community, at least at present, is not a large one. “Bruce and I have dedicated ourselves to Xterra more than anybody else in the community, I would say,� Cloninger notes. “I keep going back to it year after year, depending on family, medical, whatever’s going on in life.� Those who decide to try off-road triathlon are in for a challenge, but it’s a challenge Rogers and Cloninger clearly relish. Rogers, who is scheduled to race

in the Xterra U.S. championships on Sept. 22, describes off-road triathlon as “technical,â€? and Cloninger calls it “exhaustingâ€? and “more of a full-body workout,â€? noting that falls during the race are not uncommon. “You’re sweaty, you’re wet and you’re dirty,â€? says Rogers, who in July finished second overall at Xterra La Grande in northeastern Oregon. But off-road triathlons are also accessible, even to those who may be less skilled in trail running and mountain biking than Rogers, who took second in his age group earlier this summer at the USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross-Country National Championships in Idaho. He points out that offroad triathlon participants can always dismount their bikes to go over objects when needed. “It’s amazing to me ‌ to see the shapes and sizes and gender of people who do these events,â€? Rogers says. And perhaps, if all goes well, Rogers and Cloninger can compete in one of these events in Central Oregon next year. Notes Rogers: “You’d think if La Grande, Oregon, can attract 60-something people that Sisters should attract between that and more.â€? —Reporter: 541-383-0393, amiles@

IN BRIEF Valeant to pay $2.6B for Medicis Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. has agreed to buy dermatology products maker Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp. for about $2.6 billion in cash in a deal to strengthen its position in skin treatments and care. Montreal-based Valeant said Monday that it has agreed to pay $44 per share for Medicis, a 39 percent premium over Friday’s closing price of $31.87 for the Scottsdale, Ariz., target company. The boards of both companies have approved the deal. It needs approval by Medicis shareholders and regulatory clearance. The companies hope to complete the deal in early 2013. Valeant Chairman and CEO J. Michael Pearson said the deal would be “a significant next step” toward making his company the leader in dermatology by expanding its products to treat acne as well as injectable aesthetic products.

Apple rivals vie for the media spotlight Pump By Brian X. Chen and Nick Wingfield New York Times News Service

Back when Apple was an underdog, it had an easier time shrouding its product announcements in mystery and perhaps catching its competitors off guard. But now tech companies are watching every one of Apple’s moves — and scrambling to get out in front of them. Several major tech companies are cramming product announcements into this holiday-shortened work-

week. Nokia and Motorola Mobility, former leaders in the mobile race who are now also-rans, have scheduled events TECH Wednesday FOCUS for at which they are likely to unveil new smartphones. And the next day, Amazon is expected to introduce new Kindle devices. Sony and Samsung, among others, got a jump on things last week with announcements of new tablets and phones at a consumer elec-

tronics conference in Berlin. But next week, the tech event calendar is largely blank — with the exception of an Apple news conference that is said to be scheduled for Sept. 12, where the company will reveal its latest iPhone, according to a person briefed on the company’s plans, who declined to be named because those plans had not yet been made public. “It seems that the rumor of an Apple announcement is having an effect on competitors’ announcements, unless

it’s an amazing coincidence” that several events are scheduled this week and none the next, said Michael Gartenberg, a technology analyst at Gartner. “It does make you wonder if Apple has thrown the industry a little bit off balance and taken away a little bit of their confidence,” he said. In past years, it was common for technology companies to deliver product news at trade shows like the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. See Spotlight / E3


Pirate Bay founder arrested The Pirate Bay website co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg has been arrested in Cambodia three years after he was convicted in Sweden of violating copyright laws and helping consumers illegally download music and films, the newspaper Expressen reported. Cambodian authorities arrested Warg on Thursday, Expressen said, acting on an international warrant, after he was suspected of a crime in the country. Swedish Foreign Ministry spokesman Kent Oberg confirmed Monday that a man of Warg’s age has been held and that embassy personnel have visited him in Cambodian jail. Warg was taken at a home he had rented in Phnom Penh, The Associated Press reported, citing national police spokesman Kirth Chantharith.

prices up for holiday By Asjylyn Loder Bloomberg News

NEW YORK — Hedge funds raised bullish bets on gasoline to more than a three-month high, helping push prices at the pump to record levels for the U.S. Labor Day holiday, as Hurricane Isaac roared toward the Gulf of Mexico and a deadly blast closed Venezuela’s largest refinery. Money managers increased net-long positions, or wagers on rising prices, by 3 percent in the seven days ended Aug. 28, according to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Commitments of Traders report on Friday. They were the highest since the week ended May 1. Gasoline futures have advanced 22 percent from a 2012 low in June as stockpiles dropped and refineries closed. Futures reached a four-month high last week as Isaac closed 13 percent of fuel-making capacity on the Gulf coast and a gas explosion at Venezuela’s Amuay plant shut production, threatening to revive the debate about energy costs as President Barack Obama seeks reelection. Crude oil, buoyed by Middle East tension and the prospect of fiscal stimulus, also boosted the motor fuel. See Gas / E3

Sean Sunderland makes oatcakes at The Kitchen, a commercial kitchen in southwest Bend. He sells them at farmers markets, Newport Avenue Market and other stores.

Bringing a little England to Bend • Oatcake maker is selling a favorite childhood snack at local shops and markets By Jordan Novet The Bulletin


or the first 40 years of his life, Sean Sunderland avoided eating meat. But, growing up in Stoke-onTrent in the middle of England, he had no qualms with oatcakes. A British adaptation of thin Indian breads such as chapatis, the oatcake was a staple among families in Sunderland’s hometown. It’s since become available in dedicated oatcake shops in the area. Now, living in Bend after traveling for years in India and other countries and holding jobs in audio recording, telecommunications and carpentry, Sunderland makes a living by turning people on to his old childhood snack, which resembles a crepe with little holes to soak up sauces. “I batted this around for 15 years,” said

By David Wethe

Sunderland, 63. “I thought, ‘Wow, maybe other people would like these things here in Bend.’” Two days a week, he goes to a commercial kitchen off Southwest Division Street in Bend and bakes oatcakes, working off his great-grandmother’s recipe. He takes some to farmers markets, and delivers others in clear plastic bags to Newport Avenue Market and other Bend shops. The oatcakes, which cost $6.99 for a package of six, will soon be available at the Whole Foods Market in Bend. His business, Sean’s Oatcakes, has been around since March or so. But Sunderland, who moved to Bend from Bellingham, Wash., in 2009, envisions opening up a restaurant for people to try different ingredients wrapped up in oatcakes or just buy a bag of oatcakes to go. That step is perhaps two years out, but Sunderland is already looking around town for possible locations. “I can see there’s a potential here,” he said. See Oatcakes / E3

EU official makes gender equality a priority By James Kanter New York Times News Service

BRUSSELS — Companies allocating fewer than 40 percent of seats on supervisory boards to women could face serious sanctions later this decade, according to a proposal made Monday by Viviane Reding, the European Union justice commissioner. Reding has long campaigned for major changes in European boardrooms, and last year she gave industry a final opportunity to improve

NASA helps hatch robots for drilling oil without humans

its record on placing women in top management. In March, she said that selfregulation had failed and that legislation would be required in order to accelerate gender equality in many of the most senior areas of business life. If approved by her colleagues at the European Commission in the coming weeks, Reding’s proposal would require stateowned companies to name women to 40 percent of the seats on supervisory boards by 2018, according to a summary

of the draft proposal seen by the International Herald Tribune. Publicly listed companies would face a deadline of 2020 to hit the same target. The legislation would still need approval from the Union’s 27 governments and the European Parliament, and some powerful sections of industry have continued to warn against a system of mandatory quotas. “Big divergences among sectors and national traditions mean any measures must remain voluntary,” Kimberley

Lansford, a senior policy adviser at the European Round Table of Industrialists, a forum for the chairmen and chief executives of major multinational companies, said Monday. Some major technology and manufacturing companies have been particularly wary about placing constraints on the gender of board members, partly because of the relative paucity of women compared to men working in those fields in certain countries.

HOUSTON — NASA’s Mars rover has something to teach the oil industry. Traversing the Red Planet while beaming data through space has a lot in common with exploring the deepest recesses of Earth in search of crude oil and natural gas. Robotic Drilling Systems, a Norwegian company developing a drilling rig that can think for itself, signed an information-sharing agreement with NASA to discover what it might learn from the rover Curiosity. The company’s work is part of a larger futuristic vision for the energy industry. Engineers foresee a day when fully automated rigs roll onto a job site using satellite coordinates, erect 14-story-tall steel reinforcements on their own, drill a well, then pack up and move to the next site. “You’re seeing a new track in the industry emerging,” says Eric van Oort, a former Royal Dutch Shell executive who’s leading a new graduatelevel engineering program focused on automated drilling at the University of Texas at Austin. “This is going to blossom.” Apache, National Oilwell Varco and Norway’s Statoil are among the companies working on technology that will take humans out of the most repetitive, dangerous, and time-consuming parts of oil field work.

Manufacturing shrinks in China By Jia Lynn Yang The Washington Post

BEIJING — China’s manufacturing sector shrank in August for the first time in nine months, according to government data released over the weekend, in yet another sign that the Chinese economy is slowing just as its leaders prepare for a delicate power transfer this fall. The next several weeks are crucial for policymakers as they weigh how to respond to a steady drumbeat of disappointing economic numbers. Economic growth has slowed for six straight quarters and exports have dropped sharply as consumers in European Union countries pull back their spending. The real estate market also has experienced bumps in recent weeks. New-home sales in August were down 5.7 percent compared with July across 54 cities, according to a report re-

leased Monday by the market research group of the major property broker Centaline. Expectations are running high that the national government will step in to revive the economy, just as it did after the 2008 financial crisis. This week, President Hu Jintao is slated to give a speech on the state of China’s economy at a meeting of leaders of the AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation forum in Russia. According to a report from the official Xinhua News Agency, he will propose building more infrastructure to generate growth. But many economists say there is a limit to how much the country can depend on public spending to boost its economy. “They cannot rely on it forever,” said Zhang Zhiwei, chief China economist at the investment bank Nomura. “It’s more of a short-term solution. It’s just buying time for them to roll out structural reforms.”

Twitter’s chief lawyer, Alexander Macgillivray, spends much of his time defending Twitter users’ free speech. Jim Wilson New York Times News Service

Twitter’s chief lawyer defends free speech with revenue in mind By Somini Sengupta New York Times News Service

SAN FRANCISCO — Alexander Macgillivray, Twitter’s chief lawyer, says that fighting for free speech is more than a good idea. He thinks it is a competitive advantage for his company. That conviction explains why he spends so much of Twitter’s time and money going toe to toe with officers and apparatchiks both here and abroad. Last week, his legal team was fighting a court order to extract an Occupy Wall Street protester’s Twitter posts. The week before, the team wrestled with Indian government officials seeking to take down missives they considered inflammatory. Last year, Macgillivray challenged the Justice Department in its hunt for WikiLeaks supporters who used Twitter to communicate. “We value the reputation we have for defending and respecting the user’s voice,” Macgillivray said in an interview here at Twitter headquarters. “We think it’s important to our company and the way users think about whether to use Twitter, as compared to other services.” It doesn’t always work. And it sometimes collides awkwardly with another imperative Twitter faces: to turn its fire hose of public opinion into a profitable business. That imperative will become far more acute if the company goes public, and Twitter confronts pressures to make money fast and play nice with the governments of countries in which it operates; most Twitter users live outside the United States and the company is opening offices overseas. That transformation makes his job all the more delicate. At a time when Internet companies control so much of what we can say and do online, can Twitter stand up for privacy, free expression and profitability all at the same time? “They are going to have to monetize the data that they have and they can’t rock the boat, maybe,” said Ryan Calo, a law professor at the University of Washington. “I don’t predict Twitter is going to lose its way, but it’s a moment to watch.” Jonathan Zittrain, one of his former professors at Harvard Law School, called it both a challenge and opportunity for Macgillivray, widely known as @amac, his handle on Twitter, and one that could influence

the Internet industry at large. “If @amac can help find a path through it, it may serve as a model for corporate responsibility for an Internet where more and more code and content is governed by corporate gatekeepers,” Zittrain said via email. He added that the challenge for Macgillivray “is not only to pioneer a wise way through this thicket, but to implement it as Twitter’s use continues to explode. It’s complex maintenance on a jet engine while the plane is in flight.” Twitter hit some turbulence this summer when it seemed to forget its principles. The company briefly suspended a British journalist, Guy Adams, who had used his Twitter feed to repeatedly criticize the handling of Olympics coverage by NBC, a corporate partner of Twitter. This kerfuffle reveals something of the identity crisis that Twitter faces. It is both a gadfly’s bullhorn and a valuable stream of business intelligence. And with an $8 billion valuation, its business strategy is being closely watched. Twitter has lately stepped up ways to draw advertising revenue while Wall Street waits for it to go public. Macgillivray insists that like a traditional media company that distributes information, Twitter, too, draws a hard line between the moneymaking side of the company and the content its users post. He calls it a church-state divide. “You don’t want business interests affecting judgment about content,” he argued. “That is against corporate interests. It’s against the trust your users have in your service.” Other technology and communications companies have repeatedly stumbled on issues of free speech and privacy. Yahoo supplied information that helped Chinese authorities in 2005 convict a journalist. Google in 2010 withdrew from China after hackers from that country stole proprietary computer code and hacked into Gmail accounts of human rights activists. Google and Twitter both issue annual reports that tally information requests from individual countries; Facebook, that other trove of personal data, does not, and insists on the use of real names, which, its critics say, can endanger dissidents and others with unpopular opinions.

Masterpieces of real estate? By James B. Stewart New York Times News Service

If it’s $100 million, is it art? Since Citigroup’s former Chairman Sandy Weill sold his penthouse at 15 Central Park West late last year for $88 million, or $13,000 a square foot, to a Russian billionaire, sales prices in Manhattan have been flirting with $100 million, and brokers say it’s only a matter of time until the barrier is broken. Sales at such stratospheric levels in Manhattan, as well as records in certain neighborhoods in Miami, Los Angeles and a few other pockets isolated from the nationwide collapse in real estate prices, have left real estate professionals struggling to explain the surge. Art may be the answer. “Art is what people are willing to pay for, and an apartment like this is like a piece of art,” the Long Island real estate developer Steven Klar told a colleague of mine at The Times, Alexei Barrionuevo, in late July as he listed his penthouse on West 56th Street for $100 million. Kathleen Coumou, senior vice president at Christie’s International Real Estate, said that some residential properties could legitimately be marketed and sold as art. “When we call a property art, it tends to have architectural or historic significance,” she said. She cited the recent sale of a Manhattan town house designed by the famed 19thcentury architect Stanford White, which was listed by Christie’s at what now seems a bargain, $49 million. “But even new construction could be considered art. It’s the equivalent of postwar and contemporary art, which is setting record prices.”

Art properties Something is certainly leading to record prices for what brokers describe interchangeably as trophy or art properties. An apartment at One57, a tower under construction across from Carnegie Hall, sold for $90 million and another is in contract for a sum said to be more than $90 million (though less than the list price of $115 million.) The casino executive Steve Wynn, who is also a prominent art collector, bought a penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South for $70 million in June. A duplex co-op on Park Avenue sold for $52 million in May. For high-end real estate sellers and buyers, the art analogy holds obvious appeal, since prices for paintings cracked the $100 million barrier at auction years ago and quickly rebounded from the financial crisis. The record for the most expensive painting is said to be held by Cezanne’s “The Card Players,” sold last year to the royal family of Qatar for a price estimated by Vanity Fair at $250 million. (A few weeks ago, a member of the same family walked away from a deal at One57, opting instead for a $47 million Upper East Side town house.) To reduce the Cezanne’s 97-by-130-centimeter dimen-

sions to real estate terms, that’s $19,826 per square centimeter. Klar is asking only $12,500 per square foot, and his apartment comes with swag drapes and a crystal chandelier. It may be time for a reality check.

A dissenting voice David Kusin, a former Metropolitan Museum of Art curator who also worked on Wall Street and now runs Kusin & Co., a consulting firm in Dallas that specializes in the economics of the art market, told me the comparison of real estate to fine art infuriated him. “There’s absolutely no statistical validity to it,” he said. “It’s like comparing Earth to Saturn. And I’ve been studying these markets for 18 years. I live in a home designed by the dean of Taliesin,” Frank Lloyd Wright’s school of architecture. “The interior designer and landscape architect are at the apex of their fields. There is no comparability at all between the structure I live in and the art that hangs on the walls.” Among the more obvious differences he and others mentioned is that most art is portable, and thus sells in a global market; most great art is unique and can’t be replicated; art serves no utilitarian function; art values are based on a wide range of scholarship, research and critical evaluations, which may take generations to evolve; and valuing art is much more complicated than valuing real estate. “When people get crazy over something, they like to rationalize what they do,” Kusin added. “If a Russian oligarch is going to spend $88 million, then somehow he has to justify it. So he says it’s more than an apartment. It’s art. That’s absolutely ridiculous. At the end of the day, it’s still a piece of real estate. It’s immovable, and it needs to be maintained.”

The masterpieces There are a few real estate properties that even Kusin would concede qualify as masterpieces, but curiously, they aren’t the ones asking — or getting — anywhere near $100 million. And none of them are in new Manhattan condo buildings. Sotheby’s auctioned the Farnsworth House, a landmark in modernist architecture designed by Ludwig Mies van der

Rohe and built in 1951 on 58 acres of prairie southwest of Chicago. The winning bidder was the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which paid $7.5 million. Frank Lloyd Wright’s landmark Ennis House, set on a hill in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, sold last summer to the billionaire executive Ronald Burkle for less than $4.5 million. It was listed by Christie’s in 2009 at $15 million. Sotheby’s has several listings for palazzos in Venice, some dating to the 14th century. “If you’re standing on a terrazzo floor built in the 1300s, that has a lot of value,” Philip White, president of Sotheby’s International Realty, said. “There are early frescoes in some of the walls that are part of the real estate, and the frescoes alone are worth a lot of money.” Be that as it may, such listings in Venice start at $3.5 million, and White said none has sold for more than $20 million. “There are only a few properties of great architectural and historic significance,” White said. “The Mies Farnsworth house was one of those; some of the Frank Lloyd Wright houses; the Philip Johnson glass house in Connecticut. They transformed architecture the way Picasso transformed the art world. That’s how we at Sotheby’s look at it. “I don’t think you can put 15 Central Park West in that category, even if an apartment did sell for $88 million. I’m sure it has some nice elements, but it’s a new condominium.”

A ‘herd mentality’ According to Jonathan Miller, president of real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel, “When people refer to their real estate as art, they’re really trying to say it’s unique, that it can’t be replicated.” He said he’s seen the phenomenon not just in New York, but also Miami, London, Los Angeles and other markets where investors “are looking for safety in a world of turmoil and uncertainty.” But, he said, “they’re confusing price with art. You’d think that titans of industry would be very individualistic about their acquisitions, but at the very top, there’s a herd mentality. You get one or two very large transactions that grab headlines and then it’s

like a light switch goes off. In New York, this happened in the second half of 2010, and since then it’s been very intense. The size of what’s happening is unprecedented. How long can this go on? You see this kind of behavior and you have to wonder.” Does any of this trickle down to the broader housing market? Anything selling for close to $100 million has to be considered a niche, accessible to only a small number of extremely wealthy buyers, Miller said. The recent high-end sales seem to have preceded an upturn in the broader real estate market, and some real estates experts consider luxury home sales a leading indicator of broader price trends. This week, the widely followed Standard & Poor’s Case-Shiller Home Price Index reported that average American home prices in June posted their first yearover-year increase in nearly two years. “This is an isolated market but it does create optimism,” Coumou, of Christie’s, said of the ultra-high-end sales. “I see the beginning of a recovery. I hope next year we’ll see better results in areas outside Los Angeles, Manhattan and Miami.”

High-end risks Whether record prices can keep soaring is another matter. Weill realized close to a 20 percent annualized rate of return on his apartment at 15 Central Park West, which he bought in 2007 for $43.7 million. To maintain that rate, it would have to sell for more than $200 million in just five years. There’s also the risk of overbuilding at the extreme high end. Unlike Picasso, who’s dead, several such developments like the kind of real estate now fetching close to $100 million — lofty new Manhattan condos with sweeping Central Park views — are under construction or rumored to be in the offing. A tower being built at 56th and Park Avenue is expected to top One57 by several hundred feet; the Baccarat Hotel and Residences New York, scheduled for completion in 2014, is rising across the street from the Museum of Modern Art and will feature interior touches like Baccarat crystal chandeliers; Vornado Realty Trust has proposed a new ultra-luxury tower at 220 Central Park South, offering direct park views, not ones from several blocks away; and another soaring tower is rumored for a site near 57th and Broadway. “Are there enough billionaires to fill all these spaces?” one broker mused. Art advisers often caution prospective buyers that they should buy art because they love it, and not just because they expect it to appreciate in value. Perhaps the same could be said about high-end real estate. If living at the top of a new condominium tower delivers unparalleled satisfaction, then perhaps price doesn’t matter.



A hands-on approach to machinists’ old-school methods By Alejandra Cancino Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — Gerry Cantu is old school when it comes to teaching. From the first week of class, Cantu makes his students get their hands dirty, disassembling and putting back together greasy, gunky decades-old machines to better understand how they work and how they can be repaired. As the promise of good-paying jobs has renewed an interest in manufacturing, local colleges and training centers are beefing up their programs; their focus tends to be on mathematics and computer programs because modern plants operate with the latest technology. And then there’s Cantu, who teaches at the Illinois Manufacturing Foundation in Chicago. There is a market for his students because some companies continue to make parts on old, custom-made machines and need people who can operate them and keep them going, a knowledge that is disappearing along with older skilled workers like Cantu. “All the old-timers are retiring,” said Cantu, 57, who explained that he is trying to impart skills no one would teach him when he started working as a machinist four decades

Oatcakes Continued from E1 As far as Sunderland can tell, no one in the United States makes the kind of oatcake he does. As a child, what would Q :The you have oatcakes with? traditional way was A : with Cheshire cheese — Cheshire is an adjoining county — and stewed tomatoes, and whatever (else) you’re going to put in it — basil, oregano, whatever it was. That’s the traditional way — a very quick breakfast, very quick snack. They’re really filling. A couple of those and I’m set for most of the day.

Q : A :

What goes into an oatcake? I ground my own rolled oats, to get the right consistency. That becomes oatmeal. (Also, ) oat flour, oat bran, a little brown rice flour for a little texture, organic flax meal. Because there’s no eggs or binding agent in these things, flax is a good substitute. It thickens over time, and it holds the mix together. (Also,) 1 percent milk, water, yeast and just enough sugar to activate the yeast. It’s got to be frothy.

Spotlight Continued from E1 Now some major companies have scaled back their presence at those conventions and followed Apple’s lead in running their own elaborate news conferences, hoping to grab the media’s undivided attention. Fall product introductions are important to companies seeking to generate excitement ahead of the holiday shopping season. The fall has become especially jam-packed with news in recent years as both the number of companies involved and their product lines have grown, with the addition of players like Amazon and its Kindle products as well as all the companies building mobile devices based on Google’s Android operating system. This year is particularly intense because, in addition to Apple’s anticipated news, Microsoft is releasing a new version of its flagship Windows operating system, as it does roughly every three years. Along with a wave of new traditional-looking personal computers, the introduction of Windows 8 will bring with it an array of tablet computers powered by the software, including Microsoft’s own Surface tablet, due for release Oct. 26. And later this fall, Apple is expected to unveil a smaller version of its iPad with a 7.85inch screen. “You’re getting all sorts of maneuvering by companies around the time they have to have Christmas products out there,” said Michael Mace, a former marketing executive

ago. “I learned mostly on my own,” Cantu said with pride, round glasses perched on his nose, a blue cap partly covering his dark hair flecked with gray. “That’s why I like to teach.” Cantu’s classroom is on the second floor of an old industrial building and consists of about a dozen machines in a

Can you envision this Q : being a business employing 10 or 20 people? I can, yeah. My vision A : for it would be to have bricks-and-mortar and to be able to generate some jobs in Bend. That would really be great. I would really like to be able to help people with it. There are so many people who are hungry in Bend, even. In Central Oregon, there’s an enormous number of hungry children. I was shocked when I read the figures of that. What’s it like to pay Q : your bills off a business based on something from your childhood? I’ve thought, when I’ve been sitting at the table with a computer and strategizing, like, ‘Oh, what’s going to happen next?’ I can remember being sent out on Sunday mornings to go get a dozen oatcakes in a brown paper bag. And it’s just a funny thing. It’s like, wow, almost sixty years ago, and here it is again. It’s like a full circle. It does tickle some old British genes in me that this thing has appeared in Bend, Oregon. It’s pleasing.

at Apple and Palm who has a new startup called Zekira. “I’ve got to have everything in shops in mid-November. Do I get more attention if I announce before other guys or after? How long before? If I do it in September, does stuff look like it’s gotten old?” With Apple’s record of success now, the dates of its announcements are to be avoided. Products announced after Apple’s could be subject to uncomfortable comparisons or accusations of copying, if they are noticed at all. Google, which owns Motorola Mobility, has already tried to upstage Apple. In June it scheduled an event about its mapping services just five days before Apple presented mapping software for the iPhone that will replace Google’s technology. But Google drew some criticism for not actually having much new to say. This week is especially important for Nokia, whose newer Lumia mobile devices have had tepid sales despite an aggressive marketing campaign. Accompanied by its partner Microsoft, Nokia will be showing smartphones with software that will let users swap files among phones, according to a person briefed on the company’s plans, who declined to be named because the plans were not yet public. Tero Kuittinen, an independent mobile analyst and vice president of Alekstra, a company that helps consumers reduce their phone bills, said it was crucial for Nokia to get ahead of Apple in order to send the message that its smartphones look and behave very differently from the iPhone.

Robots Continued from E1 “It sounds futuristic,” says Kenneth Sondervik, sales and marketing vice president for Robotic Drilling Systems. He compares it to other areas that have become highly automated, such as car manufacturing or cruise missile systems. Until recently, robots have been a hard sell in an industry that has long relied on human ingenuity, says Mark Reese, president of rig solutions at National Oilwell Varco. “In the past, it’s been all about, ‘We need more and more people and experience, and that’s the only way to accomplish this task,’ ” Reese said. The 2010 BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico helped shift attitudes, says Clay Williams, chief financial officer at National Oilwell Varco. Eleven men were killed when the Deepwater Horizon rig caught fire and sank. Statoil has projected that automation may cut in half the number of workers needed on an off-

Gas Continued from E1 “Everyone is pretty bullish,” Stephen Schork, president of Schork Group, a consulting firm in Villanova, Pa., said Friday. “The bottom line is we have a dearth of refining capacity and not enough ability to make gasoline. On top of that, we’ve had a big rally in oil.” Gasoline for September delivery rose 2 percent in the week covered by the report to $3.1261 a gallon on the New York Mercantile Exchange and closed at $3.1056 on Friday, when they expired. The fuel jumped 6.6 percent in August. Regular gasoline at service stations, averaged nationwide, cost $3.827 a gallon on Sept. 1, a record for the date and the highest level since April 25, according to data from Heathrow, Fla.-based AAA, the largest U.S. motoring group, compiled by Bloomberg. It remained at that level Sunday, 4.6 percent more than a year earlier. “We expect it to continue to break highs the next few

Equality Continued from E1 The measures would apply to supervisory boards, or to non-executive directors, one EU official familiar with the proposal emphasized Monday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the proposals still needed to be formally discussed, said companies would retain the freedom to choose among the best-qualified executive directors to run day-to-day

was working at one machine, trying to fulfill each step of a process Cantu had outlined. The teacher sat on a stool a few feet away, piping up when he felt King was taking too long or not carrying out the steps. When Cantu reminded him to write down what he was learning, King couldn’t find a

pen. After handing him one he kept nestled at the side of his cap, Cantu asked, “Anything else?” King lifted a hand to his chin, then exhaled loudly. Finally, remembering the step, King jotted it down. Cantu can at times be gruff with his feedback, but the students seem to sense that he cares about them and wants them to succeed. Several students said his method of teaching has given them a far better grasp of the machines, and that his hands-on training prevents boredom from seeping in as it would in a typical classroom. “What I’m trying to do is to help you get in the door of a company,” Cantu explained to a group of potential students during an orientation. Learning how to properly set up a machine takes years, he said. “That’s what I’m teaching you from the beginning.” Some of the students are a lot like Cantu, a onetime member of the Harrison Gents street gang who credits turning around his life by working with his hands. Others want to turn themselves around the same way. “I feel motivated again,” said King, 42, who was released in July, 2011 from federal prison, where he served a three-year

sentence for falsifying tax returns. King sees Cantu’s 16-week training program as a possible ticket out of unemployment. Hiring managers, he said, don’t care about his years as an emergency medical technician and a paramedic. Once they learn of his criminal record, they shut the door. But Cantu’s class has given him hope because he was referred to the school by a company that had openings for machinists. Mary Ann Cervinka, a human resources manager at Arrow Gear, a gear-maker based in Downers Grove, Ill., has hired some of Cantu’s students as trainees in the company’s in-house program. She said the hands-on training he provides is invaluable. “When you first start to cook or bake or work in the kitchen, you don’t make a 10-course dinner,” Cervinka said. “You learn to boil water, to make hot dogs or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.” It’s much the same for learning to become a skilled machinist, she said. Step by step, they learn the intricacies of metal, what the machine does and how it works, as well as the skills needed to troubleshoot and solve critical-thinking problems, Cervinka said.

shore rig and help complete jobs 25 percent faster, says Steinar Strom, former head of a research and development unit on automation at the Norwegian company. Robotic Drilling Systems is designing a series of robots to take over the repeatable tasks now done on rigs by pipehandlers, deckhands and roughnecks. Its blue, 10-foot-tall robot deckhand has a jointed arm that can extend about 10 feet, with 15 or so interchangeable hands of assorted sizes. The robot is anchored in place to give it better leverage as it lifts drill bits that weigh more than a ton and maneuvers them into place. The Sandnes, Norwaybased company also is collaborating with researchers at Stanford University on a three-fingered robot hand embedded with sensors that give it a touch delicate enough to pick up an egg without crushing it. The Mars rover is designed to collect data and take action on its own based on programmed reasoning. As a

step in that direction, some companies are working on technology that will make drill bits more intelligent and able to respond instantly to conditions they encounter, such as extreme temperatures or high pressures. National Oilwell Varco of Houston, the largest U.S. maker of oilfield equipment, and Schlumberger, the world’s largest oilfield services provider, have developed drill pipe wired with high-speed data lines to allow the bit to feed information to workers at the surface. Apache, the third-largest U.S. independent oil and natural gas producer by market value, is writing software that will essentially allow the drill bit to think for itself, communicating directly with equipment at the surface that controls speed and direction. Graham Brander, the company’s director of worldwide drilling, sees it working much like a plane on autopilot, flying on its own with a human on standby, ready to assume the controls if necessary.

“That’s what I view very much as the automation model for the oil and gas business,” he says. Other breakthroughs are taking place onshore, where producers are racing to drill tens of thousands of wells in U.S. shale fields. On a recent morning in north Houston, Johnny Alverson, a senior foreman at rig builder Drilling Structures International Inc., fired up an 1,800-horsepower John Deere engine and picked up a remote control box as big as a car battery as he prepared to move a 167foot-tall drilling rig without the aid of a crane. With the push of a couple of buttons on the remote, the green light lit up next to “walk” and the rig slowly heaved itself up five inches off the ground on four large, flat feet. The $20 million monster can move at a rate of a foot a minute. Says Drilling Structures Executive Vice President P.J. Rivera: “You start to feel good about yourself when you can pick up a million pounds with the flick of a thumb.”

days at least,” Michael Green, a spokesman for AAA in Washington, said Thursday. “We wouldn’t expect the price to change too much by the end of the weekend.” The increase is helping reignite an issue that has pitted Obama, who has called for the elimination of billions of dollars of subsidies enjoyed by the oil and gas industry, against Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee. Gasoline for October delivery advanced 0.9 percent to $2.9333 in the week covered by the report and settled at $2.9728 on Aug. 31. The futures were up 1.7 cents at $2.9898 at 1:15 p.m. in New York. The discount to September fuel reflects speculation that demand will slip as the driving season ended with Labor Day, and the switch to winter-grade fuel that’s cheaper to produce and needs to meet less-stringent emissions rules. September contracts rose 1.3 percent to a 16-week high on Aug. 22 after an Energy Department report showed stockpiles slipped to a 10week low, and minutes from a Federal Open Markets Com-

mittee meeting indicated policy makers may expand fiscal easing soon. Gasoline stockpiles declined to 201.2 million barrels, the Energy Department said Wednesday. It was the lowest since the week ended May 25. Futures gained again on Aug. 23 as Isaac, the ninth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, forced offshore workers to evacuate, and threatened to curb oil and gas output from the region and suspend operations at coastal refineries. The contracts jumped 2.5 percent on Aug. 27 to $3.1548, the highest since April 30, as the storm roared toward landfall in Louisiana. The Gulf region is home to 23 percent of U.S. oil production, 7 percent of natural-gas output and 44 percent of refining capacity, according to the Energy Department. Isaac forced companies including BP, Apache, Murphy Oil, Royal Dutch Shell and Anadarko Petroleum to temporarily stop output and evacuate workers. Closures peaked Thursday, with 95

percent of oil production and 73 percent of natural gas shut down, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. The strain on the U.S. refining system was compounded by increased fuel demand from Latin America and the Aug. 25 explosion and fire that killed at least 42 people and halted production from Petroleos de Venezuela’s Amuay plant, which can process 645,000 barrels of oil a day. PDVSA, as the state-owned oil producer is known, is the sole owner and operator of the refinery. The Paraguana complex has a capacity of about 950,000 barrels a day, second in size to Reliance Industries’s Jamnagar refinery in India, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Rising U.S. oil and natural gas production has made the country a global export hub for gasoline and diesel. Drilling in formations such as the Bakken shale in North Dakota helped push U.S. oil output July to the highest since 1999, according to the Energy Department.

aspects of a business. The proposal also had been written with a focus on “underrepresented gender,” so that company boards that do not include at least 40 percent men also could run the risk of sanctions, the official said. Reding has previously said she dislikes quotas but concluded that they had served to open the way to equality. Countries that have quotas “bring the results,” she said in an interview this year. At the time, Reding said she could set the target anywhere

between 20 percent and 60 percent. Member states are likely to have a menu of options for sanctioning companies if the legislation wins approval. According to the current proposal, the national authorities would be able to choose one or all of the following options to enforce the quota: financial penalties; exclusion from bids on public contracts; restricting access to national and European subsidies; and requirements to cancel appointments of

women or men when a board is too heavily tilted toward one gender. The EU official said Reding hoped to be able to make the final proposal public by mid-October. Reding already has a track record of defending citizens’ rights by successfully lowering the cost of cellphone calls, confronting government leaders over the mistreatment of minority groups and speaking out against the privacy policies of technology companies like Google.

Despite heroic start, summer ticket sales disappoint Hollywood By Brooks Barnes New York Times News Service

LOS ANGELES — This is one summer Hollywood would like to remake. Ticket sales at North American cinemas declined an estimated 3 percent, to $4.28 billion, for the period from the first full weekend in May to Labor Day, compared with the period a year earlier. The last time studios experienced a decline for the summer was seven years ago, according to, which compiles box office data. But even higher ticket prices could not offset empty seats. Attendance for the period, when studios record about 40 percent of their annual ticket revenue, was the lowest since at least 1993, when independent records started to be kept. About 533 million people went to the movies, a 4 percent drop compared with last summer. These dour statistics, offset somewhat by international sales, come despite a season that included two huge hits: “The Avengers� took in about $620 million in North America for Disney (more than $1.5 billion worldwide); and “The Dark Knight Rises� sold more than $431 million in tickets for Warner Brothers (closing in on $1 billion globally). Studio executives point to the mass shooting in July at a Colorado theater as one reason for the unexpectedly chilly summer. In the weeks after the killings, which took place at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,� up to 25 percent of moviegoers were reluctant to visit multiplexes, according to the research firm NRG. Higher than normal interest in the Olympics also kept people at home, with one out of every 10 moviegoers replacing at least one trip to the movies with televised sports, according to the research firm Ipsos MediaCT. Consumers also continued to push back against higher ticket prices; although Imax had a solid season, theaters sold an estimated 15 percent fewer premium-priced 3-D tickets this summer compared with the period a year earlier.

A season of extremes Do not let the movies themselves off the hook, analysts say. At a time when social media are making it harder for studio marketers to put lipstick on pigs, films like “Battleship,� “Total Recall,� “Rock of Ages� and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter� missed the creative mark, failing to charm either critics or audiences. “Some of it was conceptual ideas that didn’t connect and some of it was just bad product,� said Vincent Bruzzese, president of Ipsos MediaCT’s Worldwide Motion Picture Group. Still, the summer of 2012 may be most remarkable for its extremes. After shooting out of a cannon with “The Avengers,� which broke an industry record in May for the biggest opening weekend ever, the movie business closed its warm-weather season with catastrophic results for “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure.� Over the weekend, “Oogieloves,� which cost about

$55 million to make and market and was released on 2,160 screens, took in about $448,000; that result ranks “Oogieloves,� independently made by the “Teletubbies� impresario Kenn Viselman, as one of the biggest flops of all time. (“The Possession,� distributed by Lionsgate, was the No. 1 movie for the weekend, taking in $17.7 million, according to; the horror movie cost about $15 million to make.) The swing between huge hits and huge misses was felt at most of Hollywood’s big studios — the consequence, analysts say, of cutting back on midbudget movies in favor of franchise pictures that cost roughly $200 million to make and $150 million more to market. “For better or worse, that’s the game these days,� said Nikki Rocco, president of Universal Pictures Distribution.

Plenty of flops Universal, now owned by Comcast, had the summer’s biggest flop, “Battleship,� which performed so poorly compared with its swollen budget that it led the studio to post an $83 million secondquarter loss. But Universal also had the biggest surprise success in Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted,� a relatively inexpensive comedy that to date has taken in about $216 million domestically and $384 million in total. Sony Pictures Entertainment successfully released “The Amazing Spider-Man,� which took in about $260 million in North America and $735 million worldwide. But two duds — the comedy “That’s My Boy� and “Total Recall� — ate into profits from “Spider-Man.� “The Dark Knight Rises� was a colossus for Warner, but the studio also had significant disappointments with “Dark Shadows� and “Rock of Ages.� And 20th Century Fox had a big hit in “Ice Age: Continental Drift,� which took in about $156 million in North America and $828 million total, and a box office letdown in “The Watch,� which has taken in only $42.8 million worldwide. This whipsawing came with exceptions. Disney ended the summer rolling in “Avengers� money, with “Brave� chipping in a substantial $469 million in global ticket sales and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green� exhibiting surprising holding power. From a business standpoint, perhaps the biggest measure of success for any studio involves laying track for future summers. To what degree were movie companies able to start a new series or revive an old one? Disney succeeded with “The Avengers,� already scheduling a sequel for May 2015, while Fox is working on a follow-up to “Prometheus,� which took in a respectable $351.2 million worldwide. And Sony has “The Amazing Spider-Man 2� slated for May 2014. But the franchise-building winner would appear to be Universal, which is hopeful for sequels to “Ted� and “Snow White and the Huntsman,� which, backed by a strong marketing campaign, took in $394 million worldwide.

That chill in the air means it’s time to save seeds By Liz Douville For The Bulletin

The calendar tells me in bold-face type that it is September, but my mind refuses to accept that another summer has passed and in a few days it will officially be fall. There are summer chores that didn’t get crossed off. If I look back in the journal far enough, I’m sure I’d find a few spring chores still hanging around, and here it is time to list the fall chores that save to How tomato seeds will keep me busy for weeks. Most important for me is the seed savInside ing of flowers • Step-byand especially step guide of tomatoes. to saving I like to think tomato of the process seeds, F5 as gardening on the cheap. There isn’t any question that the simple process saves money. The days can really be busy with canning or freezing, but I find seed saving is a great satisfaction, bringing gardening around full circle. The rule of thumb is not to save seeds from vegetables or flowers labeled “hybrid.” Hybrid plants rarely breed true from collected seed. Desirable characteristics from several plants have been crossbred to develop the plant you think is worth the seed saving. I wouldn’t discourage you from trying saved hybrid flower seeds; after all, gardening encourages experimentation, but don’t count on getting the same results. The seed may revert to the parent plant or you may grow an entirely different plant. It’s less common for flower seed packets to be labeled “hybrid” or “open-pollinated,” so you may have a surprise come bloom time, but that could be fun.

At the Market is a weekly look at produce available at local farmers markets. What: Lemon cucumber Season: Summer About: Many farmers markets offer a wide range of cucumbers, all of which offer slightly different tastes and textures. But for me, the best option is the lemon cucumber. Doesn’t the name just sound good? Citrusy and sweet, with a kind of watery texture, this cucumber defines refreshing. Lemon cucumbers are round and a little yellowish in color. The skin is also rougher than a typical cucumber and is usually removed before eating. Preparation: Peel the skin off the cucumber, then slice into chunks and serve as you would any other cucumber. I think they make an ideal salad ingredient. Or just snack on them as is. — Alandra Johnson, The Bulletin

Relishing the flavors of the harvest season FOOD

By Jan Roberts-Dominguez For The Bulletin

In the beginning, relish had a straightforward purpose: a way to use up every last bit of produce before the end of harvest. Soon enough, however, preservers discovered that these mid- to lateseason picklings of all the garden stragglers produced such delectable results that specialty condiments beyond the basic “pickle

cated lot, those tantalizing condiments. Where jams and jellies require specific amounts of sugar and lemon juice to live up to their full potential, relishes and their fruitier cousins, chutneys, are forgiving. As long as they’ve got a nice balance of vinegar, salt, and sugar, the end product is bound to be interesting and useful as a condiment in your kitchen. See Relish / F2

Relish Continued from F1 And like I said, because most recipes call for a small amount of many different ingredients, it’s a great way to use up what’s left in the garden. But first, a few points to consider: •If you decide to make your relishes and chutneys shelf stable, you’ll need to process the jars in a boiling-water canner. To stay safe, don’t reduce the processing times in the canner. Relishes and chutneys are fairly dense and require the entire processing time called for in a given recipe for thorough heat penetration. •Additionally, if you’re planning to store your prepared relishes and chutneys at room temperature, don’t reduce the amount of vinegar your recipe calls for. That’s because you’re combining low-acid foods like onions, peppers, and corn with high-acid foods like tomatoes, fruit and vinegar, with the ultimate goal of creating a condiment high enough in acid that it doesn’t have to be processed in a pressure canner. So don’t add extra amounts of (low-acid) vegetables or water, or reduce the amount of

vinegar called for. You would most likely end up with a relish or chutney that’s no longer safe to process by the boiling-water bath method. If you want to make the relish or chutney less tangy, add sugar. •On the other hand, if you’ve got the refrigerator space, chut-

Corn Relish with Sweet Red and Green Peppers Makes about 5 pints. This is a more traditional corn relish than the recipe at right. 6 C cooked yellow corn kernels (see note) 2 C diced onions 1 C chopped, cored and seeded sweet red peppers 1 C chopped, cored and seeded sweet green peppers (or use an additional cup of sweet red peppers) ¾ C chopped celery

1½ C packed light brown sugar 2 TBS pickling salt or other fine noniodized salt 2 TBS (lightly packed) dry mustard 2 tsp turmeric 1½ tsp celery seed ¼ tsp ground hot red (Cayenne) pepper 2½ C cider vinegar ½ C water

Wash 5 pint or 10 half-pint jars; keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs. Combine the corn, onions, peppers, celery, brown sugar, salt, mustard, turmeric, celery seed, red pepper, cider vinegar and water in a large nonaluminum pot. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat and simmer the mixture, partly covered, until it has thickened slightly, about 30 minutes; stir occasionally. For long-term storage at room temperature: Ladle the hot relish into 1 hot jar at a time, leaving ¼-inch head space. Wipe jar rim with a clean, damp cloth. Attach lid. Fill and close remaining jars. Process half-pints or pints in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes (15 minutes at 1000 to 6000 feet; 20 minutes above 6000 feet). For storage in refrigerator: simply fill clean jars with the hot relish, attach lids, let cool and then refrigerate. Will keep in refrigerator for several months. Note on corn: for 6 cups of corn, cook 10 to 12 ears of fresh yellow corn in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes, cool and cut the kernels from the cobs. — Adapted from “Fancy Pantry,” by Helen Witty

neys and relishes will maintain fabulous quality for months and months and months in the fridge. • Take advantage of your food processor. Many of oldtime favorite recipes call for the use of a hand-cranked “food chopper.” If you have one and want to use it, that’s fine. But a food processor works swiftly, as long as you are careful and don’t over-process the vegetables into mush. It’s wise to work in reasonably small batches and only chop one type of vegetable or fruit at a time.

Now that you’ve made it, what can you do with it? Well, obviously, it depends on the character of any given chutney or relish, so you’ll have to be the final judge of what works with what, but here are a few things to consider: •Combine a little chutney or relish with mayonnaise or softened cream cheese and spread on your favorite firm-textured bread for extra flavor in a chicken or veggie sandwich, or •Stir a little chutney or relish into the chicken salad or chopped vegetable mixture. •Serve as an accompani-

Makes about 6 cups. This whole-berry relish makes a wonderful accompaniment for smoked pork chops, grilled chicken and roasted duck and turkey. 3 C sugar 1½ C water 3 pint baskets (about 9 C) firm-ripe blueberries, rinsed and drained 1½ C cider vinegar Zest (outer peel only, no white pith) of 2 oranges, cut into ¾-inch wide strips 3 sticks (2 inches each) cinnamon, coarsely broken 1½ tsp whole allspice 1 tsp whole coriander seed ½ tsp whole cloves Combine the sugar and 1½ cups water in a large pan. Heat over medium heat to boiling; boil 1 minute. Add the blueberries and return the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the mixture, uncovered, at a hard simmer just until the berries are broken, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour the berries into a sieve set over a bowl and drain off the syrup. Set the berries aside for later; return the syrup to the pan. Add the vinegar, orange zest, cinnamon, allspice, coriander and cloves to the syrup and heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Boil the mixture, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the syrup is reduced by about half and registers 220 degrees on a candy-jelly thermometer; this will take about 50 minutes. Remove from heat. Meanwhile, if you plan to store the relish in jars at room temperature, wash 3 pint or 6 half-pint jars. Keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs. If you plan to refrigerate or freeze, wash suitable containers and dry thoroughly. Strain the spices from the syrup and discard; return the syrup to the pan. Add the berries and any juices that have accumulated in the bowl and heat the mixture over mediumhigh heat to boiling. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the relish at a simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. For storage in refrigerator or freezer: place in plastic freezer containers or glass jars, cover with tight fitting lids and refrigerate or freeze.

Wimpy’s Delight — A Hamburger Relish Makes about 7 half-pints. My favorite hamburger relish recipe. Worth repeating.

Wash 7 half-pint jars (or a mixture of half-pint and pint jars); keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs. Combine the tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions, celery, hot pepper, garlic, vinegar, salt, sugar and corn syrup in a large pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally, then lower the heat and simmer briskly, uncovered, for 1 hour. Stir it occasionally. Stir in the cloves, cinnamon and mustard seed. Continue to cook the sauce, stirring occasionally, until it has thickened enough to release scarcely any thin liquid when a spoonful is placed on a plate and tilted; this final cooking should take from 1 to 1½ hours. Taste the sauce and add, if desired, a little more vinegar or sweetening or salt; if you would like a hotter sauce, add a little ground hot red pepper or a few drops of Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce. If the chili sauce is too thin after the seasonings are adjusted, cook it a little longer. For long-term storage at room temperature: Ladle the hot sauce into 1 hot jar at a time, leaving ½-inch head space. Wipe jar rim with a clean, damp cloth. Attach lid. Fill and close remaining jars. Process half-pints or pints in a boiling water canner for 15 minutes (20 minutes at 1,000 to 6,000 feet; 25 minutes above 6,000 feet). For storage in refrigerator: simply fill clean jars with the hot relish, attach lids, let cool and then refrigerate. Will keep in refrigerator for several months.

2 TBS salt 2 TBS mustard seed 1 TBS cumin seed 2 tsp whole allspice 1 C granulated sugar 1 qt distilled or cider vinegar (at least 5 percent acidity)

If you are planning to store the prepared relish at room temperature, then you will need to wash 7 pint jars (or 14 half-pint jars); keep hot until needed. Prepare lids as manufacturer directs. Combine the corn, peppers, celery, pickled jalapenos, onion and salt in a large non-aluminum pot. Tie mustard seed, cumin seed and allspice into a bag made up of many layers of cheesecloth (or use a freshly laundered cotton handkerchief) and add to the corn mixture, along with the sugar and vinegar. Heat the mixture to boiling and then reduce heat and simmer, for just 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, then refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours, stirring occasionally and squeezing the bag of spices to release the spicy flavors into the liquid. For long-term storage at room temperature, prepare the canning jars as described above. Bring the relish back to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and ladle into 1 hot jar at a time, leaving ½-inch head space. Wipe jar rim with a clean, damp cloth. Attach lid. Fill and close remaining jars. Process in a boilingwater canner for 15 minutes (20 minutes at 1,000 to 3,000 feet; 25 minutes at 3,000 to 6,000 feet; 30 minutes above 6,000 feet). For storage in refrigerator: simply fill clean jars with the hot relish, attach lids, let cool and then refrigerate. Will keep in refrigerator for several months.

any way you slice it, it’s a versatile vegetable

• It’s also ubiquitous this time of year. Here are some ways to use up the bounty. By Russ Parsons Los Angeles Times

Tomatoes are summer’s glamour crop, round, red and ripe. But though zucchini will never get as many magazine covers, real cooks know you can’t beat it for versatility. If you’ve got a perfectly ripened backyard tomato, there are only a few things you should do with it (yes, admittedly, all of them are delicious). But if you’ve got a bag of zucchini, well, the sky is the limit. Here are some quick ideas. • Bulgur salad with arugula, zucchini and pine nuts: Salt zucchini and set aside until soft. Rinse, pat dry and combine with toasted soaked bulgur and minced red onion, dress with olive oil and lemon juice and at the last minute add torn arugula leaves and toasted pine nuts. • Ratatouille: Saute onions in olive oil until they’re tender and transfer them to a big pot. Saute zucchini until tender and add that to the pot. Saute eggplant until tender and add that to the pot. Add peeled, seeded, diced tomatoes and red wine vinegar and cook until they thicken. Add them to the pot and heat everything through to combine flavors. • Zucchini-basil frittata: Saute sliced onion and shredded zucchini in a nonstick skillet until the zucchini is no longer moist. Stir the mixture into a bowl of beaten eggs along with grated Parmesan cheese and torn basil leaves. Return the mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the egg mixture sets like soft scrambled eggs. Run the pan under a broiler just until it browns on top. • Zuni Cafe zucchini pickles: Slice the zucchini about 1⁄16 of an inch thick. Combine in a bowl with a sliced onion and salt generously. Cover with ice water and set aside until the zucchini is softened, about 1 hour. Rinse and pat dry. Combine vinegar, sugar, dry mustard, mustard seeds and turmeric in a small saucepan and simmer for 3 minutes. Set aside until just warm to the touch. Pour the brine mixture over the zucchini, transfer to jars, seal tightly and refrigerate for at least a day. • Braised zucchini with mint and lemon: Braise the zucchini in olive oil with chopped onion, garlic, lemon zest and mint. When you remove the lid and turn the heat up to high, add more lemon juice and cook until the liquid is reduced to a syrup. Cool to warm room temperature and stir in more mint and toasted pine nuts. • Zucchini and pine nut salad: This is another very simple (and delicious) adaptation of a basic technique.Salt zucchini as in the bulgur salad and combine it with minced red onion and pine nuts and dress with olive oil and lemon juice. Stir in shredded basil just before serving. • Zucchini in agrodolce: Cut the zucchini into large pieces. Heat olive oil and a whole peeled garlic clove until the garlic begins to brown. Add the cut-up zucchini and cook until the zucchini begins to brown, add white vinegar, sugar, toasted pine nuts, softened golden raisins and a chopped anchovy fillet and cook until the liquid reduces to a syrup. Remove from the heat, stir in chopped mint and season to taste with salt and black pepper. This can be served either warm or cold.

Know your squash There are hundreds of varieties of summer squash sold as zucchini, but they break down into two main families. Though they can be used interchangeably, each has different strengths. • The familiar deep green

There are a number of zucchini varieties available, but the familiar deep-green cylindrical type tends to have the best flavor. Thinkstock

Woven Zucchini with Fresh Goat Cheese

Zucchini Fritters

Makes 4 servings.

Makes 8 fritters.

3 to 4 (6- to 7-inch) zucchini Salt Olive oil 1 ⁄2 clove garlic, minced

1 TBS lemon juice 10 to 12 cherry tomatoes 8 oz fresh goat cheese

1 tsp dried oregano (preferably Sicilian) 6 leaves fresh basil

Trim the ends of the zucchini to make them a uniform length. Slice them lengthwise as thin as you can, about one-eighth inch (this is most easily done with a mandoline, but if you’re careful, a very sharp knife will also work). You should have at least 24 thin strips of zucchini. Place the zucchini in a bowl, salt generously and toss to coat, then transfer to a colander and set aside until the zucchini have softened, at least 30 minutes. While the zucchini are sitting, whisk together 3 tablespoons olive oil, the minced garlic and lemon juice and season with a pinch of salt. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times and season lightly with salt. Rinse the zucchini slices under cold running water, then pat dry with a paper towel. Return to the bowl and season with just enough of the olive oil-lemon mixture to moisten lightly. Weaving the zucchini may sound complicated (as with weaving a lattice-top pie), but it is not difficult at all. You’ll need 6 strips of squash for each plate. Arrange three strips of zucchini side-by-side on the first plate. Lift the middle strip and place one strip of zucchini perpendicular to the other strips and over the two outer strips, making an “H.” Unfold the middle strip over the perpendicular strip. Fold back the two end pieces on one side and lay another perpendicular strip, then unfold the end pieces. Repeat at the other end, then use your fingers to gently push the pieces together to make a tightly woven mat of zucchini. Repeat for the three remaining plates. Place the fresh goat cheese in a bowl and stir in the dried oregano and the remainder of the olive oil-lemon mixture to make a smooth, creamy mixture. If necessary, add a little more olive oil. Divide the goat cheese mixture evenly among the four plates, spooning it in the center of the zucchini mat. Scatter the cherry tomato halves around the outside. Drizzle lightly with a little more good olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt. Tear the basil leaves into small pieces and scatter over top. Serve at room temperature.

Zucchini Tian

1 lb zucchini Salt 1 tsp cumin seeds 1 tsp coriander seeds 1 green onion, chopped, green part only

1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 tsp minced jalapeno 2 TBS flour 1 egg, beaten Olive oil Greek-style yogurt

Shred the zucchini and put it in a colander. Sprinkle generously with salt, mix well and set aside for at least 30 minutes to drain. Toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a small dry skillet over medium heat until they begin to pop and smell fragrant. Grind in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. Rinse the shredded zucchini under cold running water. Pick up a small handful, squeeze it dry and put it in the center of a linen dish towel. When you’ve squeezed all the zucchini by hand, gather the dish towel around the zucchini and twist, wringing out as much liquid as you can. The more liquid you remove, the lighter the fritter will be. Put the zucchini in a bowl and add the green onion, jalapeno, cumin and coriander and stir to mix well. Stir in the flour and then the beaten egg. The mixture should be sticky, but there shouldn’t be any free liquid. If there is, stir in a little more flour. Pour olive oil into a nonstick skillet to a depth of about one-fourth inch (it’ll take about one-fourth cup) and heat it over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot enough that a little bit of zucchini sizzles immediately, drop 4 (2 to 3 tablespoon) mounds of the batter into the pan, flattening them slightly with the back of a spoon. Fry until golden brown on one side, 3 to 4 minutes, then gently flip and fry until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and gently pat away any excess oil. Serve immediately, with a dollop of thick Greek yogurt.

1 lg onion Olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced Salt 2 TBS slivered basil leaves 2 zucchini, cut into 1⁄4 -inch rounds

16 to 20 cherry tomatoes, quartered 3 TBS slivered, pitted black olives Freshly ground black pepper 4 oz fresh goat cheese

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the onion in quarters lengthwise and then in one-fourth-inch crosswise strips. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is softened and translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Generously oil an earthenware, glass or enameled cast-iron baking pan approximately 10 by 8 inches. Scatter the onions across the bottom, season lightly with salt and scatter the basil leaves over the top. Arrange the zucchini on top of the onions in a single tight-fitting crosswise row. Arrange the remaining zucchini following the same pattern, overlapping each successive row by about one-half. Scatter the cherry tomatoes and black olives evenly over the top and again season lightly with salt (remember, the goat cheese will be slightly salty) and more generously with black pepper.

cylindrical zucchini tends to have the best flavor, and the darker the zucchini, the better it is. But the flesh can be soft and breaks down when cooked. • The light gray-green slightly bulbous zucchini, which is common at Latino and Middle Eastern markets, has a milder taste but denser, firmer flesh that

holds together during cooking. • You may also sometimes see round zucchini, such as Ronde de Nice and Tondo di Piacenza. These are not technically zucchini but summer pumpkins. Nevertheless, they have firm flesh and mild flavor and are very good for stuffing. — Los Angeles Times

Next week: Smart spots for homework

Kesslers Continued from F1 Ask Ernie a question about timber and/or wood, and he more than likely will have the answer. After leaving the family farm, he went to work for several wood industry companies before retiring from Weyerhaeuser as a manager. But the word “retiring” isn’t really part of Ernie’s vernacular. Even before his retirement, he was commuting from his home in Eugene to work on this La Pine property, clearing the land and getting ready to build his dream home. A couple of years after he purchased this rugged piece of land, his first wife passed away. Though distraught, Ernie managed to raise his children as a single dad, and he confesses he didn’t think he’d ever remarry. But then he met Janice seven years ago, and the two hit it off. Janice got behind the dream home project in La Pine, too. “Our friends all thought we were crazy and we’d get bored out here in La Pine, and that we’d miss Eugene. But I haven’t missed Eugene one bit. I never want to leave here,” said Janice, 65, with a satisfied grin. “Bend gets the reputation of being the great place to live, and La Pine gets the ‘poor boy’ reputation. While Bend is a nice town, we love being here in La Pine, where everyone is so friendly,” said Ernie.

Southern plantation with log cabin twist Ernie says when he saw the plans for this original Southern plantation-style home, he loved the idea of having a wraparound porch. He kept that intact, but continued to tweak the plans to fit what he and Janice wanted for their home. Instead of having a separate dinning room, they decided to keep the living room, kitchen and dining room as an open plan. Now the 2,160-square-foot, twobedroom, two-bath house is what this retired couple call the “perfect size” for empty nesters. Ernie points out that the wraparound porch alone is 1,000 square feet, which gives the couple ample outdoor space to entertain friends. Though they are Oregonians through and through, they have genial Southern-hospitality manners, which their friends in La Pine enjoy.

Hard work As if thinning out the forest wasn’t enough work for Ernie, he soon learned he would have to finish building the house, after his contractor departed the project. Ernie says he was left holding the proverbial bag, or in this case, the shell of a house. “Ernie did all the wood siding, the entire porch, floors,

fireplaces in the living room and bedroom,” explained Janice. “He did the electrical, too, with the help of a friend. He went on to do all the plumbing. He built the pump house, the hot tub room, the pond with the water wheel, and he built the front gate and entrance archway, from trees we salvaged here.”

Never say retire Every day, you can catch Ernie working on some new project. Whether it’s building wood furniture, making cabinets, gardening or tinkering on his antique cars, the work is never really done for Ernie. “I’m always thinking of the next project I can give Ernie, because he likes to keep busy,”

here at the island and prepare dinner,” said Janice walking over to the island and picking up a wooden bowl. “Oh, and Ernie made this bowl, too.” There aren’t many types of wood Ernie would turn up his nose at. Janice takes us into their office and shows us the built-in cabinets Ernie made for this room. The cabinets and drawers are made of stunningly beautiful curly maple wood. The grain on the hand-turned wood is imbued with natural swirly grain designs. “I just salvaged this wood from the Weyerhaeuser firewood pile a number of years ago,” explained Ernie, who made an outdoor table and chairs for their porch out of

the same wood. “Nowadays, you couldn’t touch this kind of wood, it’s so expensive.” Ernie’s expansive knowledge of all things wood is evident when he mentions the wood he used for the side tables in the living room. “We just had some extra wood, so the base is black walnut, the leg is yew wood, and the table top is oak,” explained Ernie. Even the family dogs were graced with Ernie’s handiwork. He made them a twofoot-high feeding trough area, with their names carved into the front. Ernie says his favorite room in the house is the extra-large master bedroom, where the couple’s love of old

said Janice, as she points out all the pieces of furniture he has made for their house. “He made this hallway entry piece, and this tea service cart, and this checkerboard, and those side tables, too.” There is not a single room, where Ernie’s handiwork cannot be seen. He’s a master carpenter and woodworker, and his wife is clearly proud of him. Ernie seems embarrassed by all the attention. “It’s just something I love to do,” he said.

At the foot of their bed is a large oak chest with brass fittings that Ernie built as a gift to Janice. Inside the master bathroom, the couple has an extra-large double shower, tiled in marble with special showerheads. “We were in Tahiti, and they have something called the garden shower, and it feels like rain coming down, so we wanted a really large showerhead like that here,” said Janice. In this bathroom, Janice says, Ernie had to build the built-in oak vanity, because they wanted it to fit in triangularly in the corner. Since they couldn’t find one that fit, Ernie built one from recycled oak. Frames around photos and old maps were also made by Ernie from reclaimed barn wood. If you see something Ernie hasn’t built or made, it was probably made by one of his many artistic friends. Ernie points to metal art on his walls and hand-carved wooden trout, all created by his friends. Walking out the back door, onto the back area of the wraparound porch, we step down onto a slate tile patio and pass several of the outbuildings Ernie has built over the years, including a dedicated screened-in spa room. Janice points out the threestory condo chicken coop Ernie built for their lucky chickens. According to Ernie, “They give us more eggs than we could possibly eat ourselves, which is why we give them away as gifts to friends.” Beyond the chicken coop is a shooting range, for target practice. Next to this is the barn, which houses a tractor and the neatest and most pristine woodworking shop you could imagine. Following the gravel path past several of Ernie’s green houses and raised garden beds, and shining brightly in the midday sun, is Ernie’s pride and joy, his mint-condition 1955 aqua Bel-Air Chevrolet. Janice has her vintage 1959 Camaro SS parked next to the Bel-Air. As officers of the High Cascade Car Club, they enjoy cruising in their classic automobiles — no covered wagons for this pioneer couple. “After we cleared the land, people were driving onto the property thinking this was a subdivision, and some people even asked if they could camp here,” said Ernie. “That’s why we built the gate up front. This is now a great place to live. Over there, past that back gate, I can walk the dogs two miles and we’re at Wickiup Reservoir. No, we don’t miss Eugene or the city; we have it all here.”

Haiti, Kenya and other Third World countries. “You can’t get enough even to paint your home,” he said. And that, he said, is why he founded Global Paint for Charity, a nonprofit that collects leftover paint and uses it for good. He first organized the charity in 2010 but, in truth, Global Paint was born more than a decade ago as Delgarde rode a bus from Miami to Orlando, Fla., to visit his mother. He spied a road crew repainting the yellow and white lines that delineate traffic, and he was appalled. Painting the road seemed like such a waste. Delgarde, a Duluth, Ga., resident, would soon discover that in America, paint is used for all sorts of purposes and can be found everywhere, including in many a garage and basement. What a difference those discarded half-empty cans and buckets of paint could make, he thought, if he could just collect, reprocess and donate them to the needy in developing countries around the world.

life, working as a health care consultant and volunteering in the community. His thoughts seldom turned to paint again until a visit to Uganda and Kenya in 2010, when he was struck by the number of unpainted schools, churches and homes. There the thought revisited him: “What if?” Back home, he shared his idea with friends. “They laughed,” Delgarde said. No one will donate paint, they

told him. It’s too expensive. He could’ve left it at that, but instead, he called Harold Watkins, a mentor and retired director of sales at Avon. The idea resonated with Watkins. He told Delgarde about “A Painted House,” a John Grisham story about a boy who lived with his parents and grandparents in a house that had never been painted. In the beginning, Watkins told

him, the boy was lusting over a red Cardinals jacket. By the end, he had matured beyond his years, and used his money to buy paint for the house. “I thought that was exactly what he was trying to do, to help people feel better about their lives,” Watkins said. “I loved the idea so much I wrote a few checks to help him get started.” It was the push Delgarde needed. To date, Global Paint Charity has collected more than 60,000 new and used gallons of paint. From every 2,000 gallons of used paint, Delagarde can extract about 500 gallons of usable paint. So far, he has distributed some 6,000 gallons, including 500 to Kenya and Uganda.

How to save tomato seeds Saving tomato seeds requires fully ripe fruit.

In the war against weeds, it is possible to beat the foe, or at least to contain it. All you have to do is develop an obsession. My own weed mania revealed itself recently at a party. Standing on the edge of a terrace, next to a wall of planters, I was talking to a fellow guest about life in the Tyrolean Alps when I spotted a container garden of succulents. “Is your village in Austria or over the border in — oh dear, there’s a load of prostrate spurge among the hens and chicks.” Hens and chicks, in this case, are not fowl but a brand of succulent, and the spurge is a ground-hugging weed related, curiously, to poinsettia. Its trick is to fly under the gardener’s radar, made inconspicuous by its flattened profile. Fortunately, my cosmopolitan party companion had an equally advanced case of weed compulsion and spotted the spurge at the same time. We began to extract it from among the succulent’s plump rosettes. The task was made difficult by the weed’s tendency to break and exude a milky sap, but it seemed to us both more engrossing than party chatter, so we persevered. The moment offered an important lesson: If your deck planters need weeding, throw a party for horticulturists.

An obsession But it is not just hard-core gardeners who are obsessed by weeds. Weeds seem to present one of the biggest anxieties about home ownership. They are a stain on the landscape, and the roots run deep into the psyche, with dark associations of neglect and loss of control. Ralph Waldo Emerson thought a weed “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.”Keen-eyed gardeners know too well the weed’s virtues: its ability to grow quicker, taller, stouter than one’s preferred plants, to rob them of light and nourishment, and to grow in soils where few other plants will. Weeds will consume a garden, if they are allowed

not rid themselves of the plantains that creep up between flagstone pavers, or the English ivy that crawls around the woods, or the neighbor’s invading bamboo. It may not be possible to eradicate all of these, but it is practical to suppress them once the compulsion has taken hold. Nourish that inner eye for young weeds and every time you find yourself in the garden, you will find yourself pulling them reflexively. This affliction may appear at cocktail parties, but it is a good one to have. As shocking as this may seem, some people have gardens, sort of, but try to avoid stepping into them. A weekly mow-and-blow, preferably from hired help, seems to keep things in check. Twice a year, an army of laborers comes through and weed-whacks the most egregious weeds and smothers the rest with mulch. Such landscapes are tidy but impersonal. The weeds return.

Benefits of experience Weed pulling, like most things in the garden, is part of the enriching universe that you create. After a few years, you get to know the prolific seed setters that must be pulled right away, wood sorrel and garlic mustard among them, and those whose fate can wait, such as annual poa or young plantains. Nothing is quite as satisfying as pulling intact the prostrate spurge, whose deep tap root would rather snap than let go. With experience and a sense of the prevailing soil moisture, you can exert just enough power to extract a slender root that may extend six inches. Quite a party piece.

QUEEN Hearty obedient plant draws MATTRESS birds, bees and butterflies SETS White flowered selections could also be incorporated with the addition of purple coneflowers. The obedient plant is deer resistant making this meadow garden even better.

By Norman Winter McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Bees, butterflies and hummingbirds have been feasting almost nonstop just outside my office window. The plant causing all of the commotion is lavender/pink obedient plant. It would be hard to find another native flower that has such a wide range. Unbelievably, it is native in 39 states and even north to Canada. This means if you are a gardener, you can probably grow the plant, as it is hardy from zones 3-9. The obedient plant offers an incredible spiky texture, with its pink to purple blooms rising upward from 2 to 4 feet. The flowers are tubular in form and align themselves vertical in columns along the stem. The plant’s name comes from its ability to have the flowers bent, then maintaining the position obediently for quite some time. As you might guess from such a large area of adaptability, soil structure and pH are not a big issue as with other plants. A moist, fertile soil, however, does allow the plant to really dazzle. If you want to tone down its aggressiveness, choose a site

The tubular flowers of the obedient plant provide nectar for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.

that is fertile but a little drier. The obedient plant is found at many garden centers in its generic native version as well as some improved cultivars known to be more compact in habit. Look for selections like Rose Queen, Bouquet Rose, Summer Glow and a white selection called Alba. Those of you who have a little land and have longed to create that dreamy wildflower meadow along a meandering stream may want to consider the obedient plant. Clumps of lavender/pink partnered with yellow to orange gloriosa daisies would be very picturesque.

Make your own flavored oil MARTHA STEWART

By Julie Rothman The Baltimore Sun


Organizing a yard sale I’m planning a yard Q: sale. Do you have any suggestions for how to put things on display? The key to attracting interest and sales is organization. One option is sorting your wares by price. You can have a table of $1 goods or a blanket of things marked “2 for $5.” Or color-code the prices: Use brightly hued dot stickers, assign a price to each shade and stick accordingly. Then map out the price chart on a large poster board so people can tell immediately by looking.

I’m dying to find out how Q: to make flavored oil for dipping bread. A restaurant near where I live infuses its house oil with orange — such a wonderful hint of flavor! Start with a mild olive oil to let the flavors of your additions shine, or a stronger olive oil for a more complex play of flavors. Use a vegetable peeler to strip the zest off two large oranges, avoiding the bitter pith. If necessary, scrape residual pith from the zest using a sharp knife. Cut into strips, and put zest in a saucepan with 1 cup oil. If you like, throw in a few whole black peppercorns and a sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary. To infuse the oil, warm the mixture over low heat for 10 minutes; be careful not to let it boil. Let the oil stand at room temperature for two hours. Then strain the mixture through a fine sieve, and enjoy. Or refrigerate until you’re ready to use it (it will keep for two weeks). The oil will solidify partially, so leave it out for about 45 minutes before serving it. Then place it in a shallow bowl, and garnish with fresh citrus peel.

They’ll never suspect this chicken divan is low-fat

Chicken Broccoli Divan If you have a lot to sell, consider grouping items by type. For example, put books and magazines in one place and electric appliances in another. This storelike layout will help people survey the selection and zero in on what they’re looking for. If you have a wide range of similar objects such as mugs or clothing, you can make the spread more visually appealing by arranging them by color and size or, for clothing, by gender. On sale day, bring in foot traffic by posting bright signs leading the way to your house and arranging attractive items so they can be seen from the street. Also, remember to keep reorganizing the display and tidying up throughout the day as people rummage through goods.

Sending ladybugs on their way Why do ladybugs infest my home in the fall? Is Q: there a way to remove them without harming them? Ladybugs head indoors in fall to hibernate for winter. And while they’re beneficial when it comes to controlling pests in the garden, finding them in your home can be a nuisance. They sometimes emit a yellowish discharge that stains, and they leave a scent that can keep them coming back year after year, so it’s worth taking care of an infestation. But you can do it without harming the bugs. First, examine the outside of your home and use caulk to seal any cracks — under shingles and around windows and molding, especially near areas


where you have seen ladybugs emerge on the inside. Then, over the next few days, when you see ladybugs in the house, simply use a wet-dry vacuum to remove them. Open the vacuum bag outdoors to release the bugs without harming them. (Sealing the house is essential; otherwise the freed bugs will get back inside.) — Questions of general interest can be emailed to mslletters@ For more information on this column, visit

A (fig) tree grows in Brooklyn By Melissa Clark New York Times News Service

NEW YORK — This morning, I grabbed a bowl from the cabinet, went outside and picked my breakfast of fresh figs. No, I’m not vacationing near the Mediterranean coast. Nor am I in California or the South. I’m at home in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, where the fig tree in my tiny garden is covered in ripening fruit. I’ve had the tree for 15 years, but when the figs arrive, it still seems like a miracle. As a lifelong New Yorker, harvesting fruit off my own tree wasn’t something I expected would become a late-summer rite. But it has, and there is nothing that compares to that simple pleasure of pulling a piece of soft purple fruit off a tree branch in my own backyard. Although I can still hear delivery trucks idling, sirens shrieking and cars honking, the fig tree makes me feel at least momentarily connected to the earth. Planting the tree was my Italian-American mother-inlaw’s idea. When I moved into the brownstone in 1997, she regaled me with stories of fig trees all over Brooklyn. Potted fig trees thriving on patios in Park Slope. Fig trees tucked in postage-stamp yards in Dyker


Tony DiDio plucks figs from a tree his grandfather planted in 1940 in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of New York. Fig trees are abundant in Brooklyn, producing soft, purple fruit that can be eaten plain, tossed into salads or threaded onto a skewer.

Heights. Fig trees spreading out regally in gardens in Bay Ridge. They were especially abundant in Carroll Gardens, where everyone with a spare foot of soil grew a lush tree that bore enough fruit to share with friends and relatives. While there are fig trees growing all over the five boroughs, they are predominantly in Brooklyn, said Annie Hauck-Lawson, an authority on New York City food culture and history, because Brooklyn had a large influx of Italians from the beginning of the 20th century until World War II.

They arrived in America bearing cuttings, explained Michele Scicolone, a writer specializing in Italian-American culinary traditions. In Carroll Gardens, Tony DiDio’s grandfather Biagio planted a fig tree in 1940 in homage to his Sicilian roots. The tree, now cared for by DiDio, is a treasured part of their family tradition. “Every August,” he said, “all anyone in my family talks about is the tree. ‘How are the figs doing?’ they all ask me. The tree is like a member of the family.”

Lamb and Fig Kebabs with Honey and Rosemary

Supporting Sponsors

Makes4 to 6 servings. 4 garlic cloves, minced 2 lg sprigs rosemary, leaves minced 2 TBS fresh lemon juice 1 TBS honey 1 tsp black pepper

11⁄4 tsp coarse kosher salt, more to taste 1 tsp Asian fish sauce or soy sauce 2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil 12 lg ripe figs

11⁄2 lbs boneless leg of lamb, cut into 1-inch chunks Chopped fresh mint leaves, for serving Lemon wedges, for serving

If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. (If you are broiling the kebabs instead of grilling, skewers are optional.) Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss together garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, honey, pepper, salt and fish sauce, and stir well to dissolve the salt. Stir in oil. Thread the figs on skewers; if you are not using skewers, spread the figs on a baking sheet. Make sure the figs don’t touch one another. Brush with some of the rosemary marinade and set the figs aside. Add lamb to the bowl with remaining marinade and toss well. If you have time, let the lamb marinate in the refrigerator for several hours or at least 30 minutes at room temperature. Light the grill or heat the broiler. Thread the lamb on skewers or spread on a baking sheet, leaving room between the pieces to get more of a char. Grill or broil kebabs for 3 to 5 minutes, turning them once. (If broiling, cook as close to the heating element as possible. You don’t need to turn them.) Sprinkle lamb with fresh mint, then serve lamb and figs with lemon wedges.

Reference is made to the deed of trust under which Carole J. Brock, as grantor, Jefferson County Title Company is the trustee, and Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Inc. is the beneficiary, which was dated November 2, 2007 and recorded on November 8, 2007 as Recording No. 2007-58914 in the Official Records of Deschutes County, Oregon. Said deed of trust covers the following described real property situated in the above-mentioned county and state, to-wit: Lot 12 in Block 6 of Romaine Village, Unit 4, Deschutes County, Oregon. Both the beneficiary and the trustee have elected to sell the said real property to satisfy the obligations secured by said deed of trust and a notice of default has been recorded pursuant to ORS 86.735(3); the default for which the foreclosure is made is grantor's failure to pay when due the following sums: Failure to make monthly payments of $1,122.53 each due on the 1st day of February 2012 through May 1, 2012. By reason of said default the beneficiary has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by said deed of trust immediately due and payable, said sums being the following, to-wit: $186,642.02; plus a per diem of $26.85; plus attorney and trustee's fees and costs. WHEREFORE, notice hereby is given that the undersigned trustee will, on Friday, October 26, 2012 at the hour of 11:00 A.M., in accord with the standard of time established by ORS 187.110, at the Deschutes County Courthouse located at 1100 NW Bond St, Bend, OR 97701, sell at public auction to the highest bidder for cash the interest in the said described real property which the grantor had or had power to convey at the time of the execution by grantor of the said trust deed, together with any interest which the grantor or grantor's successors in interest acquired after the execution of said trust deed, to satisfy the foregoing obligations thereby secured and the costs and expenses of sale, including a reasonable charge by the trustee. Notice is further given that any person named in ORS 86.753 has the right, at any time prior to five days before the date last set for the sale, to have this foreclosure proceeding dismissed and the trust deed reinstated by payment to the beneficiary of the entire amount then due (other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred) and by curing any other default complained of herein that is capable of being cured by tendering the performance required under the obligation or trust deed, and in addition to paying said sums or tendering the performance necessary to cure the default, by paying all costs and expenses actually incurred in enforcing the obligation and trust deed, together with trustee's and attorney's fees not exceeding the amounts provided by said ORS 86.753. In construing this notice, the singular includes the plural, the word "grantor" includes any successor in interest to the grantor as well as any other person owing an obligation, the performance of which is secured by said deed of trust, and the words "trustee" and "beneficiary" include their respective successors in interest, if any. We are a debt collector. This communication is an attempt to collect a debt and any information obtained will be used for that purpose. DATED: June 7, 2012. John W. Weil, Successor Trustee, 1001 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 2150, Portland, Oregon 97204, Telephone No. (503) 226-0500.
