that would curb the growth of the Oregon Department of Corrections’ budget, which currently stands at more than $1.4 billion for the biennium. Now district attorneys around the state are questioning the statistics and debating whether the commission should use the information in developing policies that could affect Oregonians’ safety. When they looked at the list of

the so-called low-risk offenders, many didn’t appear low risk at all. But some commission members, including the chief justice of the State Supreme Court and the head of the Department of Corrections, say the policymaking hasn’t begun yet, and the tool, however confusing, is accurate.

Travel search sites have made it easy to find the lowest available fares ever since pioneers like Expedia and Travelocity opened shop. Many others, like Kayak and Hipmunk, have since joined in. Travelers with complex travel plans may have noticed, however, that the search results aren’t necessarily consistent. This has created an opportunity for Flightfox, a startup that uses a contest format to come up with the best fare that the crowd — all Flightfox-approved users — can find. A traveler goes to and sets up a competition, supplying the desired itinerary and clarifying a few preferences, like a willingness to “fly on any airline to save money” or a tolerance of “long layovers to save money.” See Airfares / A4

The Washington Post

On the eve of his death, U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was ebullient as he returned for the first time in his new role to Benghazi, the eastern Libyan city that embraced him as a savior during last year’s civil war. He moved around the coastal town in an armored vehicle and held a marathon of meetings, his handful of bodyguards trailing discreetly behind. But as Stevens met with Benghazi civic leaders, U.S.

CAMDEN, N.J. — Two gruesome murders of children last month served as reminders of this city’s reputation as the most dangerous in America. Others can be found along the blocks of row houses spray-painted “RIP,” empty liquor bottles clustered on their porches in memorial to murder victims. The police acknowledge that they have all but ceded these streets to crime, with murders on track to break records this year. And now, in a desperate move to regain control, city officials are planning to disband the Police Department. The reason, officials say, is that generous union contracts have made it financially impossible to keep enough officers on the street. See Camden / A6

5 myths about presidential debates By Gwen Ifill Special to The Washington Post

As President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney take the stage in Denver on Wednesday for the first of their three debates, they won’t just face off against each other. They’ll also be competing with the rich history of presidential debates — the zingers, questions and comebacks that will be replayed and Related invoked over and • Debate over in the comdo’s and ing weeks. I’ve don’ts, F1 had the privilege to moderate the two most recent vice presidential debates, and I’ve heard many misconceptions about these events and their impact on a race. Here are a few of the most common. use debates to 1.ForVoters decide. many voters, televised presidential debates serve to focus the mind. Seeing the men who would be president — yes, always men, so far — face off empowers viewers to finally choose a side. But debates are only part of the American voter’s political diet. Like 30-second ads or stump speeches, they do as much to confirm impressions as to alter them. Think back to some memorable debate moments. Did George H.W. Bush glancing at his watch really persuade people to vote for Bill Clinton, or did it confirm the worst suspicions of those already leaning away from him? Did Lloyd Bentsen dismissing Dan Quayle as “no Jack Kennedy” lose the election for Michael Dukakis, or did it speak to an existing worry that Bush lacked the judgment to pick a No. 2 who could assume the presidency? Minds were already made up. Gallup polls going back decades show precious little shift in established voter trends before and after debates. The major exception: 1960, when Gallup suggests that Richard Nixon’s lackluster, sweaty performance against John F. Kennedy moved a dead-heat campaign into the Democrats’ column — and that’s where it stayed. approve the 2.AsCandidates questions ahead of time. if. I get asked this question more than almost any other. (That, and “Is Sarah Palin really as pretty close up?”) As a moderator, I took my cue from Jim Lehrer, who has moderated a dozen debates and has become the gold standard for the job. He advised me to keep my questions to myself. I went to such extremes to do so that in hindsight, it seems a bit paranoid. Not only did the candidates not see my questions before the debates, but precious few other two-legged mammals did. The Commission on Presidential Debates never saw them. My pastor never saw them. My family never saw them. Even Jim never saw them. And these are people I trust. I’m sure I was right to be careful. I’ve since learned that the campaigns spent as much time sussing out what I might ask as I spent trying to make sure they didn’t find out. The moderator should 3. pick fights with the candidates. When John Edwards slyly slipped a mention of Dick Cheney’s daughter’s sexual orientation into an answer in 2004, or when Palin blithely assured 67 million viewers that she did not think it was her responsibility to answer my questions, I let it pass. Not every moderator would have done that, but I concluded in each case that I had two choices. I could raise my voice, arch my eyebrows and express outrage. However, this would have made the debate about me and not the candidates. And guess what? Moderators don’t matter. My other option was to leave it up to the candidate’s opponent to call him or her on ducked answers. I took this option. Why, after all, are there two candidates on stage if not

What: Presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, devoted to domestic policy When: 6 p.m. Wednesday Watch live: ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CNBC, CNN, CSPAN

As Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama huddle with their debate coaches this weekend, they will each have to make a simple but potentially critical decision before Wednesday’s faceoff. What do they call each other? Will it be “Mr. President” or “the president” when Romney refers to his rival on stage? Will Obama talk about the policies that “the governor” wants to pursue? Or will he talk about the impact of those policies from “my opponent”? Or will there be less formal moments, when “Mitt” and “Barack” slip out? Millions of people will be watching the two men in one of the very few direct interactions they will have during the 2012 campaign. Among the things being scrutinized: How much respect will each contender pay to his rival? “There’s a certain amount of decorum that we expect in our debates,” said Brett O’Donnell, one of the Republican Party’s top debate coaches. “The reference that they use for each other is a beginning point for that decorum.”

to debate each other? Cheney took Edwards to task. Biden let Palin slide. I might behave differently in an interview, but in a debate, it is not the moderator’s job to do the debaters’ job for them.

He who zings, wins. 4. This one is almost too easy to debunk. Lloyd Bentsen. Lloyd Bentsen. Lloyd Bentsen. In the 1988 vice presidential debate, Quayle was apparently miffed at being asked for the third time by the moderators whether he was prepared to be president. The 41-yearold candidate replied that he had as much experience in the Senate as John F. Kennedy had when he ran for president in 1960. When Judy Woodruff turned to Bentsen for his reply, he pounced. “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy,” he said sternly. “I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.” The audience hooted. The exchange went down in history. Probably the other most memorable zinger fell in 1984 from the lips of Ronald Reagan, then 73 and debating Walter Mondale, a man 17 years his junior. In their first debate, Reagan seemed at times vague and confused. Not so in their second meeting: “I will not make age an issue of this campaign,” he said. “I am not going to exploit for political purposes my

opponent’s youth and inexperience.” Zing. But did either exchange shift the outcome of the election? Reagan won 49 of 50 states; Mondale only his home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia. This probably had more to do with the Democrat’s pledge to raise taxes than with the debate smackdown. As for the Dukakis-Bentsen ticket, it managed to turn a 17-point post-convention lead into an Election Day drubbing. Debates are the last best 5. chance for candidates to define themselves. No, “Saturday Night Live” is. Whether it’s Tina Fey as Palin, Amy Poehler as Hillary Rodham Clinton or Jason Sudeikis as Romney or Vice President Biden, a dead-on impersonation that lampoons a candidate’s most cartoonish qualities can leave a nasty mark. Gerald Ford was a gifted college athlete, but Chevy Chase convinced us that he was a bumbling buffoon. Bill

Clinton is probably as skilled a politician as has ever graced the national stage, but Darrell Hammond spawned a generation of grainy-voiced, winking Clinton impersonators by portraying him as a leering man of untamed appetites. In 2004, when I moderated the Cheney-Edwards debate, the “SNL” spoof featured that week’s host, Queen Latifah, playing me. But I didn’t know what would happen in 2008. In the interim, I’d met Queen Latifah and joked that she should play me again if the opportunity presented itself. She replied, “Sure, if there’s material.” Palin’s candidacy in 2008, and my return as moderator, provided plenty of material. To this day, whenever I speak at a college, I am asked what I thought about being played by her. I always reply: “Are you kidding? How else would anyone remember I was even on the stage?” — Ifill is managing editor of “Washington Week” and senior correspondent for the “PBS Newshour.”

Justices facing crucial rulings in coming term By Adam Liptak New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court returns to the bench Monday to confront not only a docket studded with momentous issues but also a new dynamic among the justices. The coming term will probably include major decisions on affirmative action in higher education admissions, same-sex marriage and a challenge to the heart of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Those rulings could easily rival the last term’s as the most consequential in recent memory. The theme this term is the nature of equality, and it will play out over issues that have bedeviled the nation for decades. “Last term will be remembered for one case,” said Kannon Shanmugam, a lawyer with Williams & Connolly. “This term will be remembered for several.” The term will also provide signals about the repercussions of Chief Justice John Roberts’ surprise decision in June to join the court’s four more liberal members and supply the decisive fifth vote in the landmark decision to uphold President Barack Obama’s health care law. Every decision of the new term will be scrutinized for signs of whether Roberts, who had been a reliable member of the court’s conservative wing, has moved toward the ideological center of the court. “The salient question is: Is it a little bit, or is it a lot?” said Paul Clement, a lawyer for the 26 states on the losing side of the core of the health care decision. The term could clarify whether the health care ruling will come to be seen as the case that helped Roberts protect the authority of his court against charges of partisanship while accruing a mountain of political capital in the process. He and his fellow conservative justices might then run the table on the causes that engage him more than the limits of federal power ever have: cutting back on racial preferences, on campaign finance restrictions and on procedural protections for people accused of crimes. It is also possible that the chief justice will become yet another disappointment to conservatives, who are used to them from the Supreme Court, and that he will join Justice Anthony Kennedy as a swing vote at the court’s center. “We all start with the conventional wisdom that Justice Kennedy is going to decide the close cases,” said Clement, who served as U.S. solicitor general under former President George W. Bush. “We’ve all been reminded that that’s not always the case.” The texture of the new term will be different, as the court’s attention shifts from federalism and the economy to questions involving race and sexual orientation. The new issues before the court are concrete and consequential: Who

gets to go to college? To get married? To vote?

College admissions On Oct. 10, the court will hear Fisher v. University of Texas, No. 11-345, a major challenge to affirmative action in higher education. The case was brought by Abigail Fisher, a white woman who says she was denied admission to the University of Texas based on her race. The university selects part of its class by taking race into account, as one factor among many, in an effort to ensure educational diversity. Just nine years ago, the Supreme Court endorsed that approach in a 5-to-4 vote. The majority opinion in the case, Grutter v. Bollinger, was written by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who said she expected it to last for a quarter century. But O’Connor retired in 2006. She was replaced by Justice Samuel Alito, who was appointed by Bush and who has consistently voted to limit raceconscious decision making by the government. Roberts, another Bush appointee, has made no secret of his distaste for what he has called “a sordid business, this divvying us up by race.” Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Kennedy all dissented in the Grutter case, and simple math suggests that there may now be five votes to limit or overturn it.

Same-sex marriage The court will probably also take on same-sex marriage. “I think it’s most likely that we will have that issue before the court toward the end of the current term,” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said at the University of Colorado on Sept. 19. She was referring to challenges to an aspect of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which bars the federal government from providing benefits to same-sex couples married in states that allow such unions. The federal appeals court in Boston struck down that part of the law, and both sides have urged the court to hear the case. More than 1,000 federal laws deny tax breaks, medical coverage and burial services, among other benefits, to spouses in same-sex marriages.

Voting rights act The justices are also quite likely to take another look at the constitutionality of a signature legacy of the civil rights era, the Voting Rights Act of 1965. In 2009, the court signaled that it had reservations about the part of the law that requires federal review of changes in election procedures in parts of the country with a history of discrimination, mostly the South. “We are now a very different nation” than the one that first enacted the Voting Rights Act, Roberts wrote for himself and seven other justices. “Whether conditions continue to justify such legislation is a difficult constitutional question we do not answer today.”

Syrian rebels and residents of Aleppo struggled Saturday to contain a huge fire that destroyed parts of the city’s medieval souks, or markets, following raging battles between government troops and opposition fighters there, activists said.

Syrian fighting torches historic medieval market By Karin Laub The Associated Press

BEIRUT — A fire sparked by battles between Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops and rebel fighters tore through Aleppo’s centuries-old covered market Saturday, burning wooden doors and scorching stone stalls and vaulted passageways. The souk is one of a half-dozen renowned cultural sites in the country that have become collateral damage in the civil war. The damage to one of the best-preserved old souks in the Middle East was the worst yet to a UNESCO World Heritage site in Syria. Across the country, loot-

month by the University of Ulster found that more than twothirds of people living near the so-called Peace Walls separating the Protestant and Catholic communities want the barriers to remain. More than a decade after an Irish Republican Army cease-fire and the signing of the Belfast Agreement, which paved the way for a power-sharing local government, there are still more than 50 such walls around the city. Last month, seven police officers were injured during rioting prompted when a Protestant

tor of UNESCO’s World Heritage Center, told The Associated Press by telephone from Paris. Most of the other sites recognized as heritage sites by UNESCO, the global cultural agency, are also believed to have suffered damage during the 18-month battle to oust Assad, Rao said. The ancient center of Aleppo — Syria’s largest city — has been hit the hardest, he said. “It is a very difficult and tragic situation there,” said Ahmad al-Halabi, a local activist speaking by phone from the area. He said rebels and civilians were trying to control the blaze, but only had a few fire extinguishers.

Judges toss some evidence at the start of papal butler’s trial By Nicole Winfield The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY — The pope’s once-trusted butler went on trial Saturday for allegedly stealing papal documents and passing them off to a journalist in the worst security breach of the Vatican’s recent history — a case that embarrassed the Vatican and may shed some light on the discreet, internal workings of the papal household. In its first hearing in the case, the three-judge Vatican tribunal threw out some evidence gathered during the investigation of butler Paolo Gabriele, who is charged with aggravated theft. It also decided to separate Gabriele’s trial from that of his co-defendant, a computer expert charged with aiding and abetting the crime. Gabriele is accused of taking the pope’s correspondences, photocopying the documents and handing them to Italian journalist Gianluigi

Tension, but no violence, as Protestants parade in Belfast New York Times News Service BELFAST, Northern Ireland — The parades to celebrate the centenary of the signing of the Ulster Covenant — the 1912 petition against home rule that helped lead to the eventual partition of Ireland — passed peacefully Saturday amid the biggest police operation in more than 20 years. The Protestant parades, which drew about 30,000 marchers, took place against the backdrop of recent heightened sectarian violence in the city. Research released this

ers have broken into a historic castle, stolen artifacts from museums and damaged ruins in the ancient city of Palmyra, antiquities officials and Syrian experts say. The Aleppo market, a major tourist attraction with its narrow stone alleys and stores selling perfume, fabrics and spices, had been the site of occasional gunbattles and shelling for weeks. But amateur video posted Saturday showed wall-to-wall flames engulfing wooden doors as burning debris fell away from the storefronts. Activists said hundreds of shops were affected. “It’s a big loss and a tragedy that the old city has now been affected,” Kishore Rao, direc-

band played anti-Catholic tunes outside St. Patrick’s Church. Despite appeals from Carrick Hill residents to the Parades Commission, about 2,000 band members were allowed to march past the church again Saturday, provided they played only hymns or sacred music. They obliged, but seldom has “Abide With Me” sounded so martial, the street reverberating to the beat of huge, signature Lambeg drums as band after band faced down the silent Catholic protesters lining the streets outside the church.

Nuzzi, whose book “His Holiness: The secret papers of Pope Benedict XVI,” was published to great fanfare in May. Prosecutors have said Gabriele confessed to taking the documents because he wanted to expose the “evil and corruption” in the church. They quoted him as saying during an interrogation that he felt inspired by the Holy Spirit to inform the

Omar Ahmed Khadr, the youngest and last remaining Western prisoner at the Guantanámo Bay detention center for terrorism suspects, was sent home Saturday to his native Canada after a decade at the U.S. military prison in Southern Cuba.

Khadr was one of only four prisoners at Guantanámo serving a sentence for terrorist offenses. He entered a guilty plea at the end of his October 2010 trial on charges of “murder in violation of the law of war,” attempted murder, conspiracy, spying and material support for terrorism. Under the plea deal, he was to serve one year of his eight-year sentence at Guantanámo, then be repatriated to Canada to serve out the rest “according to Canadian law.” That proviso could result in his being reclassified as a child soldier rather than a war criminal and treated as a victim of the circumstances that led to his July 2002 capture at the scene of a firefight with U.S. forces in southern Afghanistan. Whether his status will be revised or the remaining six years on his prison term invoked remained to be determined. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said in a statement that Khadr “is a known supporter of the al-Qaida terrorist network and a convicted terrorist,” suggesting the Canadian government would continue to take a hard line against the son of Ahmed Said Khadr, an al-Qaida financier who was killed by Pakistani security forces in 2003.



Problems are few at L.A.’s Carmageddon II Los Angeles Times LOS ANGELES — The plot is identical to last summer’s Carmageddon: Can Los Angeles avoid a traffic apocalypse as officials shut down a 10-mile stretch of the country’s busiest freeway for the weekend? But big-budget sequels rarely deliver on their hype, and by late Saturday, almost halfway through its run, Carmageddon II appeared to be no exception. Barring an unexpected twist, the redux will end like the origi-

nal. City brass will declare victory and Southern Californians will crowd the freeways once again for their Monday morning commutes. “Let me thank Angelenos for a job well done — so far,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in a news conference Saturday afternoon. He encouraged them to leave their cars parked at home. Not long after he spoke, the plan went briefly off-script when a section of the overpass being dismantled fell unexpect-

edly. After a quick assessment, officials issued a statement that the incident was “not a cause for concern” and should not cause a delay. The closure of the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass this weekend is part of a $1 billion, four-year project that includes adding a northbound carpool lane. Nearly all of the work has been done without having to shut down the roadway for more than a few hours at a time.


kets, to the square, meeting friends for coffee.” The main purpose of Stevens’ visit was opening an education and cultural facility that would be called the American Space. The initiative was a cornerstone of his goal of deepening Washington’s relationship with Libya, an oil-rich nation emerging from four decades of Gadhafi’s bizarre, totalitarian rule. Once a nuclear threat and avowed nemesis of the West, Libya appeared poised to become a close ally in a region seething with anti-American sentiment. After all, NATO airstrikes had helped save Benghazi and turn the tide against Gadhafi’s forces. Stevens was transfixed by the possibilities. “He lost friends during the revolution, as did almost every Libyan, and he respected their losses,” Hannah Draper, a Foreign Service officer stationed in Tripoli wrote in a tribute to Stevens posted on her blog. “He supported the revolution, but his real passion was rebuilding a free Libya.” Two weeks before his death, Stevens had taken an important step toward normalizing relations with Libya by opening a full-service consular section in Tripoli, enabling Libyans to apply for visas. “Since returning to Libya as ambassador in May, there’s one question I’ve heard almost every day from Libyans: ‘When are you going to start issuing visas again,’” Stevens told attendants at the Aug. 26 groundbreaking of the consular section. “Now, at least you have your answer: tomorrow.” Insecurity has beset Libya since the country’s civil war ended in October 2011 with Gadhafi’s dramatic execution. Militias have been reluctant to disband or surrender weapons. After the U.S. Embassy formally reopened in Tripoli last fall, the U.S. military’s Africa command dispatched a team to help build its security infrastructure. The troops, however, were never assigned to bolster security at the site in Benghazi, said Eric Elliott, a spokesman for the Africa command. Elliott and the State Department could not say why. During the summer, the military team became smaller as the State Department assumed responsibility for security at the embassy at the end of July. Those who remained turned their attention to building a relationship with Libya’s burgeoning armed forces, Elliott said. The Benghazi mission was an anomaly for U.S. diplomatic posts. It was not a formal consulate, but rather a liaison office established before Gadhafi’s ouster. It was staffed by the Bureau of Conflict and Stability Operations, a State Department office that dispatches government officials to hardship posts for short tours. Instead of signing a costly security contract similar to those the government has for missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the State Department this summer awarded a contract to Blue Mountain, a small British security firm, to provide local guards at the Benghazi mission. The yearlong contract, which took effect in March, was worth $387,413, a minuscule sum for war-zone contracting. Blue Mountain and the State Department declined to comment for this story. Security in eastern Libya deteriorated sharply in recent months. A string of attacks, some linked to fundamentalist groups, made clear that Westerners were no longer safe. The International Committee of the Red Cross suspended operations and evacuated staff in the east after a June 12 attack on its compound in the port city of Misrata. In Benghazi, convoys transporting the United Nation’s country chief and the British ambassador were attacked in April and June, respectively. The British government shut down its consulate

soon afterward. The U.S. mission had a close call of its own, when a small roadside bombing detonated outside the mission on June 6, causing no injuries or significant damage. But the Americans stayed put.

Continued from A1 A U.S. military team assigned to establish security at the new embassy in Tripoli, in a previously undisclosed detail, was never instructed to fortify the temporary hub in the east. Instead, a small local guard force was hired by a British private security firm as part of a contract worth less than half of what it costs to deploy a single U.S. soldier in Afghanistan for a year. The two U.S. compounds where Stevens and three other Americans were killed in a sustained, brutal attack the night of Sept. 11 proved to be strikingly vulnerable targets in an era of barricaded embassies and multibillion-dollar security contracts for missions in conflict zones. Days before the ambassador’s visit, a Libyan security official had warned an American diplomat that foreigners should keep a low profile in Benghazi because of growing threats. Other Westerners had fled the city, and the British had closed their consulate. Despite the security inadequacies and the warning, Stevens traveled to Benghazi to meet openly with local leaders. Eager to establish a robust diplomatic presence in the cradle of the rebellion against Moammar Gadhafi, the ousted autocratic leader, U.S. officials appear to have overlooked the stark signs that militancy was on the rise. This account of Stevens’ last days and the attack, which includes new details about security at the compound and the ambassador’s movements, was assembled from more than a dozen interviews with American officials, prominent Libyans and others familiar with the case. Most agreed to speak only on the condition that they not be named. The attack marked the first violent death of a serving ambassador in a generation and has become a thorn in President Barack Obama’s reelection bid. It also raised the prospect that a country Washington assumed would become a staunch ally as it recovered from its short civil war could turn into a haven for fundamentalists. U.S. officials investigating the assault say their preliminary assessment indicates that members of Ansar al-Sharia, a fundamentalist group with deep roots in Benghazi, carried out the attack with the help of a few militants linked to al-Qaida’s offshoot in Africa. When bullets and rocketpropelled grenades started raining on the main U.S. compound, the small guard force was quickly overrun, and the building was set ablaze. That image, along with the now iconic photo of a dying Stevens being dragged by Libyans toward safety, could have hardly been further from the message the veteran ambassador had traveled to Benghazi to spread: America was there to stay. “The revolution started there,” said a senior U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity citing the ongoing probes into the attacks. “We wanted to make sure the U.S. was seen as interested in the views of the east. There was no greater advocate of that than Chris.”

Ties to Benghazi Stevens was enthralled to be back in Benghazi, a city where he had served the year before as a special envoy to the rebels, said a close Libyan friend who was by his side on Sept. 10. “He had connections, contacts all over the eastern part of the country,” said the friend, who asked not to be identified because he fears his close affiliation with Americans poses a risk. “Benghazi was like his home. He wore jeans. He used to run outside the compound. He felt very safe going to mar-

Signs of a threat Geoff Porter, a risk and security analyst who specializes in North Africa, said the sudden and stark shift from “predictable violence to terrorism” in the east over the summer was unmistakable. “The U.S. intelligence apparatus must have had a sense the environment was shifting,” he said. But if Stevens was deeply worried about deteriorating security, as CNN has reported he wrote in an entry in his journal, he kept quiet, said the Libyan friend who was with him the day before the attack. “We didn’t talk about attacks,” the friend said. “He would have never come on the anniversary of Sept. 11 if he had had any concerns.” Three days before the attack, a U.S. official in Benghazi met with security leaders to ask them about the threat level, a senior Libyan official in the east said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. The American did not disclose the ambassador’s visit. “They told him, ‘Look, if there’s going to be any foreign presence (in the city), it better be discreet,’” the Libyan official said. The assault on the compound was launched from three directions around 9 p.m., the Libyan official said. Guards and members of militias friendly to the United States who responded to try to repel the attackers were shot in the legs, the official said, suggesting the gunmen had been instructed not to shoot to kill. Sean Smith, 34, an information management officer, died during that phase of the attack, and Stevens, 52, was trapped and mortally injured. A group of Americans managed to escape to a second compound about a mile away, according to the Libyan official and others with knowledge of the attack. The site was used by U.S. diplomatic and intelligence personnel, according to people briefed on the attack. Soon after the evacuated Americans arrived there, the second location came under attack, according to the Libyan official and a Libyan fighter who assisted in the evacuation. The fighter, a member of the militia known as the February 17th Brigade, which was friendly toward the Americans, received a call from a counterpart in Tripoli. He said the Americans at the second compound needed help and told him to get in touch with a man named Paul. When the militia leader got the American on the phone, Paul told him not to send his men. “Listen, my men have orders to shoot on sight, and the situation in the safe house is under control,” Paul told the militia leader, according to the account by the Libyan official. In a lengthy firefight at the second compound, two former Navy SEALs who had been deployed to Benghazi as security contractors were killed. Hours later, the Americans who survived managed to get to the airport and flee the city. This week, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli evacuated nonessential staff, citing security risks. Youssef Arish, whose family owns property next door to the so-called consulate and remembered Stevens fondly, said most Libyans were bereft by the attack. “It’s only a few people, and they don’t just hate America,” he said. “They hate the (Libyan) government; they consider them non-Muslims. They’re just a few people, but they’re going to hurt the relations between Libya and other” nations.

New York Times News Service, a startup that uses a contest format to find airfares, asks users to find the lowest fares for other travelers planning trips — and awards a finder’s fee to the winner.

Airfares Continued from A1 Once Flightfox posts the contest, the crowd is invited to go to work and submit fares. The contest runs three days, and the winner, the person who finds the lowest fare, gets 75 percent of the finder’s fee that the traveler pays Flightfox when setting up the competition. Flightfox says fees depend on the complexity of the itinerary; many current contests have fees in the $34-to-$59 range. Travelers’ savings can be considerable. In a contest for a long, complex trip that began in Sydney, passed through Barcelona and then many South American destinations before returning to Sydney, the difference between the lowest fare, $6,538 a person, and the third-lowest was about $1,400. Why couldn’t every human searcher find

the same fare that the winner did? The fact that the travelers specified 15 destinations for their four-month-long trip meant that no single search engine had all the needed information. Flightfox asks travelers who have already found a good fare on their own to make clear at the outset that they will award the finder’s fee only if a better price is found. The site also encourages travelers to consider awarding a finder’s fee for flights that may not be less expensive but have fewer stops or shorter layovers. Human searchers can find flights that handle special requests, like traveling with a pet or a surfboard, to which a travel search engine remains oblivious. Todd Sullivan, a software developer and cofounder of Flightfox, says, “There are too many variables for it to be economically feasible to build an algorithm that

covers every aspect of travel.” Sullivan says the company has about 900 researchers, which it calls “experts,” who search fares on behalf of the sponsoring travelers. Anyone can apply to be an “expert”; Sullivan says applicants need only show evidence of the ability to find good fares. About 20 percent of the Flightfox researchers are travel agents. Another large group are what Sullivan calls “flight hackers,” people who enjoy the sport of fare-hunting and frequent sites like FlyerTalk. “They do this at sites like this for free anyhow,” Sullivan says. “We’ve commercialized it.” The other large group of researchers comprises frequent travelers seeking ways to make money to finance their travel. Sullivan says he and his co-founder, Lauren McLeod, were in this category when they started the company early this year.

Offenders Continued from A1 The commission can recommend sentencing and structural changes, or funding allocation changes that would help, and could write draft legislation for the 2013 session. The commission began meeting in June, with representatives from the nonpartisan research group Pew Center on the States presenting data on areas like what drives costs, who goes to prison and for what reasons. The prison population in Oregon has increased 47 percent since 2000, and now stands at more than 14,000 inmates. Meanwhile, felony convictions have dropped 2 percent, and property and violent crimes have fallen 25 percent. Among the findings, Pew representatives told the commission that more people are going to prison for propertytype crimes; nearly half those who entered prison in 2011 had failed on post-prison or other types of supervision. In a June 29 meeting, Pew representatives said 26 percent of new Oregon prisoners in 2011 were considered low risk, that is, at low risk of committing a new felony within three years of release. The number excluded sex offenders, who are evaluated with a different tool. Clackamas County District Attorney and commission member John Foote said that number “didn’t resonate as accurate.” Concerned, he and other Oregon prosecutors asked Criminal Justice Commission officials for the list of the 850 low-risk criminals. The list of offenders, those considered at low risk to commit a new felony within three years of release, was calculated by a checklist that takes into account a variety of factors: age, gender, the person’s age at first conviction, as well as other prior convictions. Foote then distributed the list to that state’s district attorneys, who investigated the offenders from their counties.

‘Gross misrepresentation’ What they found surprised them. “I think probably most prosecutors would look at it

and find that the process is disturbing,” said Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty. “There’s been a gross misrepresentation of the factual basis for that assertion that 26 percent of new inmates … are ‘low risk.’ ” Of the 850 offenders, three were from Crook County. One was Prineville resident Richard Lynn Breneman, convicted in July 2011 of first-degree manslaughter for shooting his roommate during an argument during a night of drinking. Twenty-four offenders from Deschutes County made the list. Of those, several were high-profile cases, including Darrell Middlekauff, a methamphetamine dealer who murdered his wife and buried her body in a barrel in La Pine. Also on the list were Steven Blaylock, who murdered his wife and dumped her body in the North Santiam River, and James Patrick Powers, who took a hiker hostage at gunpoint and duct-taped the man to a tree. The 12 Jefferson County offenders on the list include a woman convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm who had previous assault convictions, including one in which she bashed a woman’s

head into the pavement and bit off her nose. Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis said the implication of the list is that “these are people who don’t need to be in prison.” He pointed to four felony DUII offenders from his area who went to prison in 2011. “By definition they had to have at least four DUII convictions,” Marquis said. “When you go to most citizens and say, ‘We have a person here on their fifth or sixth drunk driving (conviction), and they’re going to spend 13 or 14 months in prison, do you consider that person a low-risk offender?’ I don’t think anybody would say yes.” Marquis worries the intention of identifying these felons as “low risk” was to “get away with trying to tell the Legislature and the public that we can save money because the general theory is that these people don’t belong in prison.”

Defending the checklist But the checklist is not designed for that, and it’s a wellused tool, according to Craig Prins, the executive director of Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, which oversees the state’s public safety plan-

Oregon Military Department Photo by Sgt. Cory Grogan

Citizen-soldiers from the Oregon National Guard and employees of the Oregon Military Department look on from a conference room at the Oregon Military Department in Salem as Command Sgt. Maj. Brunk Conley is promoted during a ceremony Wednesday in Arlington, Va.

Guard Continued from A1 As part of his new duties, Conley will help advise the director of the Army National Guard on polices that affect enlisted citizen-soldiers across the country. “It’s an accomplishment for Oregon, and we’re all very proud of him,” Staff Sgt. April Davis of the Oregon Military Department said. “It’s a very prestigious position with a lot of responsibility.” Originally from Albany, Conley lived in La Pine several years before moving to the Salem area, where he was a science teacher with the North Santiam School District. Conley served two combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, acting as battalion and brigade sergeant major. In Iraq, he oversaw 750 Oregon Army National Guard troops. He also served as a leader in Oregon National Guard task forces that deployed to the South for Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. Prineville Police Chief Eric Bush, brigadier general in the Oregon Army National Guard, said Conley’s performance during Katrina was exceptional. Within two days, he managed to activate and move 2,000 Oregon guardsmen to the Gulf

Coast, Bush said, calling it an “unprecedented deployment speed.” Davis said Conley had an enormous amount of leadership experience, which qualified him to be considered for the competitive position. Bush said Conley’s appointment could be particularly significant for the Oregon Army National Guard. Guard units in different parts of the country have different strengths and weaknesses, Bush said. Units from hurricane-prone areas like the Gulf Coast may be more adept than most at responding to such disasters, he said. Different units will have larger or smaller numbers of guardsmen able to speak Spanish or other languages, which Bush said can make a marked difference when a unit is serving overseas or in certain parts of the country. For the more than 6,000 men and women serving in the Oregon Army National Guard, having someone in Washington who knows them as well as Conley will be a positive, Bush said. “He’s going to bring an Oregon perspective to the national scene, and that’s worth its weight in gold,” he said. Conley’s parents, Mona Conley and Brunk J. Conley,

have been residents of La Pine for more than 20 years. Brunk J. Conley describes his son as a humble person who rarely speaks of his accomplishments. “If you saw him in a restaurant, you’d never know that he was in the military,” Brunk J. Conley said. “He will not brag about himself.” The Conley family has a long tradition of military service. Brunk J. Conley is a retired sergeant first class, and his father also served in the military. The legacy of military service continues today with Brunk W. Conley’s two sons, Capt. Nick Conley and Pvt. Zachary Conley. Conley officially accepted his new position Wednesday in a change of guard ceremony in Arlington, Va. The ceremony was screened at four Oregon Military Department locations, including Bend. He will be moving from his home in Sublimity to Washington, D.C., for his new appointment. Conley did not return a phone call seeking comment. “He’s had success in everything he’s touched,” his father said. — Reporter: 541-383-0354, Staff writer Scott Hammers contributed to this report.

ning and policymaking. “Risk tools like the Public Safety Checklist have been used in Oregon jails and prisons for years and, across the country, states are using them in sentencing,” Prins said. Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul De Muniz heads the commission. He said the governor was clear at a meeting this week that violent offenders would not be released simply because they were deemed a low risk to reoffend. The checklist, he said, is just one tool that can be used to inform sentencing decisions. The missing context, De Muniz said, is the commission is tasked with dealing with the growing low-risk, nonviolent prison population, not with violent criminals. Violent offenders may be on the list, but they likely won’t be subject to any reforms. And he said the commission hasn’t even started looking at policies yet. “Let’s not put the cart before the horse,” De Muniz said. “The commission has not started to consider specific policy options. The last three months have been about creating a foundation of data and research to inform this important process. But let’s be clear: The commission is not interested in any policies that will reduce sentences or divert from prison those offenders who need prison most. On the contrary, our goal is to ensure Oregon always has the prison space available to incarcerate serious violent offenders.” Colette Peters, the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, said her office uses risk assessment to determine where prisoners are housed and which prisoners most need treatment. Using the tool, she said, is another way to figure out how best to spend public safety dollars. “We’re not talking about assessing the risk of general Oregonians,” Peters said. “These are already felons, they’re bad actors, they’ve already done something wrong.” Peters said there are people on death row who have committed heinous crimes and who are, indeed, at low risk

of reoffending. The tool has been validated by looking at offenders over two decades to figure out what factors contribute to recidivism.

Not a ‘perfect science’ “That’s what that low risk means, that a cohort of individuals we’re releasing will recidivate at a rate less than 6 percent,” Peters said. She called it a scientific tool that can improve public safety and make easier the jobs of judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys. “Public safety isn’t a perfect science, but it’s become a refined science over the years. We’ve seen crime drop because we’re doing evidencebased policing, because of community corrections. But we haven’t moved into an era of evidence-based sentencing. That’s a link on the chain that we’re missing.” Peters said she believes the commission will come up with quality policies that will help improve the way public safety works in Oregon, by dealing with nonviolent, low-risk offenders. “At the end of the day what we’re really talking about is this group (of prisoners) coming to the Department of Corrections and going to serve five months more for a property or drug crime than they previously would have, and we’re talking about spending $600 million on that in the next 10 years,” Peters said. If the commission does nothing and makes no recommendations, she said, that will mean prioritizing that money to incarcerate those property and drug offenders. But by figuring out new ways to deal with nonviolent offenders, Peters said, the state could reinvest in state troopers and other public safety pieces.

System already in place But Flaherty believes Oregon already has a good evidence-based sentencing system in place, and that justice — not an offender’s future risk to society — should be the overriding goal at sentencing. “What it revealed is that the risk assessment tool that Pew and the commission is relying on is deeply flawed,” Flaherty said. “It doesn’t include out-of-


state convictions, it doesn’t include juvenile convictions.” And the use of the tool makes him question the commission’s plans. “I think the goal is clearly to go after mandatory minimum sentences, to undercut Measure 11,” Flaherty said. “That’s (the commission’s) goal, is to say, ‘The way we reduce the Department of Corrections’ cost is to reduce the number of individuals in prison, and the way to do that is to undermine or modify mandatory minimum sentencing laws.” In an August letter to his fellow commissioners, Foote questioned whether the risk assessment tool was useful in sentencing, particularly given the list of low-risk offenders. And, Foote wrote, the list doesn’t appear “low risk” because the justice system in Oregon is already doing a good job of determining who should be in prison. “More than 75 percent of all convicted felons in Oregon are never sent to prison,” he wrote. “So, it is not surprising that the ‘lowest risk’ inmates who went to prison in Oregon in 2011 do not appear to be ‘low risk’ at all.” Based on what Foote saw in the list, he doesn’t believe the tool should be used for sentencing. “My first goal is getting accurate information and to ensure that we’re not being given information that misdescribes the way things work in Oregon,” Foote said. “Based on this and other things, I think the information given describes Oregon in a way that I don’t recognize.” While the goal of the commission is to find ways to stanch corrections department spending, Foote first wants to make sure changes are necessary. When it comes down to the commission report and suggested legislation, Foote said he’s not sure he’ll be able to sign onto it. “I’m not sold on the idea that we need to do anything,” he said. “Let’s look at it and let’s see. But every time we get information that is clearly inaccurate and incorrect, I am less confident in the rest of the information.” — Reporter: 541-617-7831,

Camden Continued from A1 So in November, Camden, which has already had substantial police layoffs, will begin terminating the remaining 273 officers and give control to a new county force. The move, officials say, will free up millions to hire a larger, nonunionized force of 400 officers to safeguard the city, which is also the poorest in the nation. Hardly a political battle of the last several years has been fiercer than the one over the fate of public sector unions. But Camden’s decision to remake perhaps the most essential public service for a city riven by crime underscores how communities are taking previously unimaginable steps to get out from under union obligations that built up over generations. Though the city is solidly Democratic, the plan to put the Police Department out of business has not prompted the wide public outcry seen in the union battles in Chicago, Ohio or Wisconsin, in part because many residents have come to resent a police force they see as incompetent, corrupt and doing little to make their street safe. A police union has sued to stop the move, saying it is risking public safety on an “unproven” idea. But many residents, community groups and elected officials say that the city is simply out of money, out of options and out of patience.

‘No Plan B’ “There’s no alternative, there’s no Plan B,” City Council President Frank Moran said. “It’s the only option we have.” Faced with tight budgets, many communities across the country are considering regionalizing their police departments, along with other services like firefighting, libraries and schools. Though some governments have rejected the idea for fear of increasing police response time, the police in Camden — population 77,000 — are so overloaded they no longer respond to property crimes or car accidents that do not involve injuries. The new effort follows a push by New Jersey’s governor, Chris Christie, a Republican, and Democratic leaders in the Legislature to encourage cities and towns to regionalize government services. They maintain that in a new era of government austerity, it is no longer possible for each community to offer a full buffet of government services, especially with a new law prohibiting communities from raising property taxes more than 2 percent a year. Most municipalities have so far remained committed to local traditions, fearing a loss of community identity, but officials in Camden County say they expect others will soon feel compelled to follow the city’s example. Camden’s budget was $167 million last year, and of that, the budget for the police was $55 million. Yet the city collected only $21 million in property taxes. It has relied on state aid to make up the difference,

Camden Police Chief J. Scott Thomson, right, questions a woman under suspicion of drug possession earlier this month in Camden, N.J. Officials in Camden say that generous union contracts have made it financially impossible to keep enough officers on the street. “How do I go to the community and say, ‘I’m doing everything I can to help you fight crime’ when some of my officers are working better hours than bankers?” Thompson asks.

but the state is turning off the spigot. The city has imposed furloughs, reduced salaries and trash collection, and increased fees. But the businesses the city desperately needs to attract to generate more revenue are scared off by the crime. “We cannot move the city forward unless we address public safety,” Mayor Dana Redd said. “This is about putting boots on the ground.” Even union officials acknowledge that the contract is rich with expensive provisions. For example, officers earn an additional 4 percent for working a day shift, and an additional 10 percent for the shift starting at 9:30 p.m. They earn an additional 11 percent for working on a special tactical force or an anti-crime patrol. Salaries range from about $47,000 to $81,000 now, not including the shift differentials or additional longevity payments of 3 to 11 percent for any officer who has worked five years or more. Officials say they anticipate salaries for the new force will range from $47,000 to $87,000. In 2009, as the economy was putting a freeze on municipal budgets even in well-off communities, the Camden police secured a pay increase of 3.75 percent. And liberal sick time and family-leave policies have created an unusually high absentee rate: Every day, nearly 30 percent of the force does not show up. (A typical rate elsewhere is in the single digits.) “How do I go to the community and say, ‘I’m doing everything I can to help you fight crime’ when some of my officers are working better hours than bankers?” the police chief, J. Scott Thomson, asked. Thomson, who is well-regarded nationally, is expected to lead the new force. Though Camden County covers 220 square miles and includes 37 municipalities, the proposal

calls for a division focused exclusively on the 9-square-mile city of Camden. Camden reorganized its Police Department in 2008 and had a lower homicide rate for two years. Then the recession forced layoffs, reducing the force by about 100 officers. The city has employed other crime-fighting tactics — surveillance cameras, better lighting, curfews for children — but the number of murders has risen again: at 48 so far this year, it is on pace to break the record, 58. The murder rate so far this year is about six people per 10,000. By contrast, New York City’s rate is just over onethird of a person per 10,000 residents. Many of the drug users come to Camden from elsewhere in the county, getting off the lightrail system to buy from the drug markets along what police call Heroin Highway in the neighborhood of North Camden. “That is cocaine, that is heroin, that is crack,” Bryan Morton, a community activist, said recently as he used his car key to flick away empty bags while his 3-year-old daughter played nearby. This summer, Morton tried to set up the city’s first Little League in 15 years in nearby Pyne Poynt Park. Drug users colonized even the portable toilets set up for the players, littering them with empty glassine drug packets and needle caps. Like other residents, he is resentful of the police union for making it so prohibitive to hire more officers. “The contract is creating a public safety crisis,” Morton said. “More officers could change the complexion of this neighborhood.”

Union blames city John Williamson, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, blamed the city for creating the problems by shifting officers onto patrols, where they receive

extra pay, from administrative positions. He said he was open to negotiation but believed that the city simply wanted to get rid of the contract. “They want to go back to a 1930s atmosphere where employees and officers have absolutely no rights to redress bad management and poor working conditions,” he said. Under labor law, the current contract will remain in effect if the new county force hires more than 49 percent of the current officers. So county officials say they will hire fewer than that. Nevertheless, they expect that the new force will eventually become unionized. Officials say that simply adding officers will not make all the difference, given the deep suspicion many residents harbor toward the police. As the chief and his deputy drove through the Whitman Park neighborhood this month, people sitting on their stoops stood up to shake their fists and shout obscenities at them. When police officers arrested a person suspected of dealing drugs in a house on a narrow street in North Camden last year, residents set upon their cars and freed the prisoner. The new county officers will be brought in 25 at a time, while the existing force is still in place, and trained on neighborhood streets, in the hopes that they can become part of their fabric and regain trust. Ian Leonard, a member of the Camden County Board of Freeholders and the state political director for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, said he did not blame the union officials who won the provisions. But he said he believed that the contracts were helping to perpetuate the “most dangerous city in America” title that he and others hate. “If you add police, it will give us a fighting chance,” Leonard said. “People need a fighting chance.”


School test cheating seen to thrive under lax investigations By Alan Judd The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

ATLANTA — In the spring of 2008, students at a Mobile, Ala., middle school discovered something weird on their yearly achievement tests: someone, somehow, had changed their answers. But when their teacher alerted the principal, he suggested she proceed with caution. “Sleep on it,” the principal said. When the teacher reported the apparent cheating to Alabama’s state education department, it ordered a thorough investigation of Scarborough Middle School. But not too thorough. Computer analyses that might detect organized tampering, the state superintendent of education says, would have amounted to a “witch hunt.” The Mobile episode, detailed in interviews and public records, illustrates the haphazard manner in which many states and school districts handle reports of cheating on highstakes achievement tests, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has found. Officials often minimize such allegations, treating them as mere aberrations: onetime occurrences best dealt with in isolation. This is the case in several cities the Journal-Constitution identified earlier this year as having, along with Atlanta, extreme concentrations of suspicious test scores: Mobile, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, and East St. Louis, Ill. The newspaper recently examined more than 130 cheating cases from those cities, a review that provides a ground-level view of cheating and its consequences. In some cases, investigations uncovered wrongdoing and led to punishment for a handful of educators. In others, inquiries glossed over glaring irregularities. Nearly always, officials focused narrowly on a single classroom or, at most, a single school — the approach the Atlanta Public Schools used for years before a scandal over systemic cheating erupted three years ago. The cases reviewed by the Journal-Constitution do not represent all the cheating allegations in the seven districts, only those for which local and state education agencies would release files. Nevertheless, they reveal broad suspicions, often confirmed, of cheating in many districts highlighted by the newspaper’s earlier analysis, which found nearly 200 districts with highly unlikely swings in test scores. They also depict a subculture of dishonesty in a noble profession: teachers who brazenly provide answers

The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — Andrew Engeldinger’s parents were worried about their son’s growing paranoia. In 2010, they sought help, enrolling in a 12-week class for families of the mentally ill. For the last 21 months, the family said they reached out in hopes he would seek treatment. It was to no avail, as Engeldinger spurned their attempts at contact. On Thursday night, they learned he was the gunman in Minnesota’s deadliest workplace shooting. Police say Engeldinger fatally shot five people and injured three at Accent Signage Systems in Minneapolis before turning the gun on himself. “It’s not unusual when you’re isolating yourself, which we know that he did, that eventually the only people you have left is your family and your co-workers, and often your paranoia translates to them,” Sue Abderholden, a mental health organization executive who is serving as spokeswoman for Engeldinger’s family, said Saturday. Police say the 36-year-old Engeldinger shot and killed

‘Accepted practice’

Minneapolis gunman’s family feared malady By Patrick Condon

Suspect test scores

to their students, administrators who convene groups that erase and correct students’ responses, school district officials who look the other way when wrongdoing emerges. In East St. Louis, cheating was “accepted practice” at Annette Officer Elementary, the school district said in a recent report. Test scores rocketed and plunged over several years, a telltale sign of tampering. But it wasn’t until this spring, after a teacher reported improprieties, that the district opened an inquiry. The teacher said that before testing began, an administrator instructed her to tell students to mark lightly on their answer sheets. That way, the administrator said, erasures would not “look like someone else had made them.” The cheating scheme was so elaborate, officials alleged, that an administrator devised a code to warn the school staff if outsiders showed up during testing. As a team of officials looking into testing violations approached the school last March, they heard the administrator broadcast the alert on the public address system: “Will Abraham Lincoln please come to the office?” The principal denied wrongdoing, but he and two instructional coaches quit, bringing the investigation to a close. The district saw no need to check other East St. Louis schools for irregularities, Beth Shepperd, an assistant superintendent, said this month. “This was public in our community,” Shepperd said. “If any teacher at another school felt there was a concern, that teacher had an opportunity to come forward.” Fewer than a dozen teachers or administrators lost their jobs over cheating in the 130 cases the Journal-Constitution examined. Three of them, all from the same middle school in Houston, also faced criminal charges. The majority of cases, including those in which investigators said they found “severe” or “sloppy” or “unallowable” violations, ended with no more than a warning, if even that. Investigating allegations of cheating remains a low priority in many states, despite highprofile scandals in Atlanta, Philadelphia, the District of Columbia and other school districts. Just 10 states budget for such inquiries, according to a recent survey of state education agencies by the Journal-Constitution. Those states set aside from $5,000 to $250,000 a year for investigations.

Reuven Rahamim, the founder of Accent Signage Systems; employees Ronald Edberg, Rami Cooks and Jacob Beneke; and Keith Basinski, a UPS driver who made a delivery at the wrong time. Two other employees remained hospitalized, one in critical condition and the other in serious condition. The officers who responded to what Police Chief Tim Dolan called a “hellish scene” eventually found Engeldinger’s body in the basement. Officers who searched his south Minneapolis home later Thursday found another gun and packaging for 10,000 rounds of ammunition. Police and company representatives have not yet said why Engeldinger was fired from a job he had held since the late 1990s. Jim Dow, a sales representative who frequently visited the business, said Saturday that he’d spoken to Accent employees and family members of victims. He said they told him that in recent months, Engeldinger had been running afoul of managers with confrontational behavior and unexplained absences from work.

TUCSON, Ariz. — Sean Mannion threw for a career-high 433 yards and hit Connor Hamlett on a 9-yard pass with 1:09 left for his third touchdown, lifting No. 18 Oregon State to a wild 38-35 win over Arizona Saturday night. Oregon State (3-0, 1-1 Pac-12) took a 17-0 lead, Arizona charged back and the teams traded scores in the second half of a game filled with big plays and 1,158 yards of combined offense. Arizona (3-2, 0-1 Pac-12) took a 35-51 lead with 5:34 left when Matt Scott hit Austin Hill on a 7-yard touchdown. That left too much time for Mannion. See Beavers / B7

SEATTLE — De’Anthony Thomas and Kenjon Barner sandwiched touchdown runs around Avery Patterson’s 34-yard interception return for a score, and No. 2 Oregon used a third-quarter scoring blitz to shake Washington State for a 51-26 win on Saturday night. Playing for the first time outside the Eugene city limits, the Ducks (50, 2-0 Pac-12) looked shaky at times in the first half and led just 23-19 at the break, but put together a nearly flawless third quarter to run away from the Cougars. Thomas capped an 18-play drive to start the half with a 4-yard touchdown. See Ducks / B7

RUNNING Bend’s King wins 100K race Another weekend, another victory for Bend’s Max King. On Saturday, King won his third race in eight days when he crossed the finish line in first place at the Ultra Race of Champions, a 100-kilometer trail race based out of Wintergreen Resort east of Charlottesville, Virginia. King, 32, covered the roughly 62-mile course in 7 hours, 57 minutes, 2 seconds, and earned $5,000 in prize money for the win. Fellow Oregonian Sage Canaday, a Sheridan resident, was second in 8:12:05. Another Bend resident, Ian Sharman, narrowly missed out on making it an Oregon sweep of the top three spots. He finished fourth in 8:25:28, just 1:11 behind thirdplace finisher Jorge Maravilla, of Vallejo, Calif. Ellie Greenwood, a resident of Banff, Alberta, was the women’s champion in 9:04:09. On Sept. 22, King won the USA Track & Field 50K Trail Championships in Bend. The following day in Ogden, Utah, he won the Xterra Trail Run National Championship for the fifth consecutive time. — Bulletin staff report

Bend’s Santi Ocariz, 26, was the first men’s finisher in the mile-long race that featured nearly 500 feet in elevation gain to the top of Pilot Butte. He finished in 7 minutes, 26 seconds. Stephanie Howe, 29 and also of Bend, won the women’s race in 8:32. Eighty-three racers completed the course on the Pilot Butte nature trail. Several age group records were set by local runners on Saturday, according to the race organizers: Bend’s Rusty Clemons (men 50-54, 8:52); Redmond’s Brad Carrell (men 65-69, 11:09); Howe (women 19-29); and Bend’s Barbara Everett (women 85-89, 21:34).

MEDINAH, Ill. — Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley helped stake the Americans to their biggest lead in the Ryder Cup in more than 30 years. Ian Poulter, eyes bulging and fists shaking with every clutch putt, at least gave Europe some big momentum over the final frantic hour Saturday at Medinah. Right when it looked as if the Americans were a lock to win back the cup, Poulter birdied his last five holes to win a crucial point and keep everyone guessing. Steady chants of “USA! USA!” gave way to snappy serenades of “Ole, Ole” as both sides trudged to the team rooms in darkness to prepare for 12 singles matches today. The Americans still had a big lead, 10-6. Europe at least had hope. See Ryder / B5

A Cabrera Triple Crown would paint a clearer MVP picture By Tyler Kepner New York Times News Service


et’s answer the big question right away: If Miguel Cabrera wins the Triple Crown, he should be the American League’s MVP. To lead the league in batting average, homers and runs batted

in and not be named MVP simply does not feel right. Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers’ third baseman, has a chance at the first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. If he does it, history will remember Cabrera as the standout performer of 2012. We know that

he does not run or field as well as others. But to give the MVP to another player seems to be overthinking the issue. The Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout is a breathtaking talent, capable of amazing feats wherever he is on the field. We do not need sta-

tistics to appreciate Trout’s many skills. Watch him for a few games, and it is obvious Trout holds a wide lead in Wins Above Replacement, the numerical measure of a player’s all-around contribution to his team. Trout does it all. See MVP / B5

• Timbers draw with D.C. United: Bright Dike scored in the 79th minute to lift the Portland Timbers to a 1-1 draw with D.C. United on Saturday night in Portland. The Timbers (7-15-9), eighth in the Western Conference, avoided elimination from the postseason race. Chris Pontius scored on a penalty kick in the 60th minute to give United (15-10-6) the lead. Pontius’s 12th goal of the season came after a hand ball call on Timbers defender David Horst, which had several Timbers in the referee’s face.


Hockey • Union head, NHL commissioner meet again: NHL Players’ Association head Donald Fehr and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman held a second round of private talks on Saturday in an effort to move closer to an agreement that would end the ongoing lockout. While negotiating teams from the union and the league discussed definitions of what makes up hockey-related revenue — the pool of money the sides are trying to figure out how to split up — Fehr and Bettman talked about the differences that are keeping the sides apart. The sides met for about four hours before finishing for the day. They agreed to meet again today. They talked for a second straight day on matters separate from the core economic issues that ultimately will have to be hammered out. In the recently expired collective bargaining agreement between the league and the union, the players received a 57 percent share of hockey-related revenue. The NHL wants to cut the number down to under 50 percent in the new deal. The league imposed a lockout on Sept. 16, when the previous agreement ran out, and the sides didn’t meet again until Friday.

Motor sports • Brown tops NHRA qualifying: Antron Brown raced to the No. 1 qualifying position in Top Fuel on Saturday in Madison, Ill., capping a record-setting two days at the NHRA Midwest Nationals. Brown will go for his second consecutive playoff victory and his sixth win of the season from the top spot. He holds a one-point lead in the Full Throttle Countdown to the Championship standings over playoff rival Spencer Massey, who was second in qualifying. Brown took his third No. 1 qualifying position of the season and 32nd of his career with his Friday track-record performance of 3.737 seconds at 326.79 mph. Jack Beckman topped the Funny Car field, Jason Line led Pro Stock qualifying, and Hector Arana Jr. was the

• NFL officials approve eight-year contract: NFL officials ended their labor dispute with the league by approving a new eight-year contract with a 112-5 vote Saturday, then hustled off to the airport to get to work. Next stop, stadiums around the country. And, the officials hope, anonymity. “The last Super Bowl that I worked, when we got in the locker room, I said, ‘You know, the best thing about this game, nobody will remember who refereed this game,’” said Scott Green, president of the referees’ association. “That’s how we like to work.” The vote ended a labor spat that created three weeks of increasingly chaotic games run by replacement officials who drew criticism of everyone from the average fan to President Barack Obama. “It was pretty much ‘Come on in and vote,’” Green said. “We’re going to talk football now. We’re going to stop talking about CBAs and lockouts and now we’re going to talk about rules and video and getting ourselves ready to work football games.”

Tennis • Petrova takes Pan Pacific title: Russia’s Nadia Petrova beat defending champion Agnieska Radwanska 6-0, 1-6, 6-3 on Saturday to win the Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo. Radwanska double faulted twice in the eighth game of the last set when Petrova broke her to go ahead 5-3 before winning the match in the next game with a smash to the corner. Petrova won her 12th career title and for the first time in her career beat three top-10 players in the same week: No. 7 Sara Errani, No. 9 Samantha Stosur and No. 3 Radwanska.

Cycling • Rodriguez wins Giro di Lombardia: Joaquin Rodriguez won the Giro di Lombardia in Italy with a late solo breakaway in the rain Saturday to end the season at the top of the UCI rankings. The Katusha rider attacked on the Villa Vergano climb with 6.2 miles to go and became the first Spaniard to win the single-day classic. Rodriguez clocked 6 hours, 36 minutes, 27 seconds in the grueling 156-mile race from Bergamo to Lecco along the shores of Lake Como. Fellow Spaniard Samuel Sanchez of Euskaltel finished second, nine seconds behind. Rigoberto Uran Uran of Colombia crossed third, also nine seconds back. It marked the 10th win of the season for Rodriguez, who finished second in the Giro d’Italia and third in the Spanish Vuelta. — From wire reports

Kickers off to their best start ever

Hamlin takes pole at Dover

• Teams have made more than 92 percent of field goals this season

the first three weeks. Last weekend, seven games were decided in the final minute of regulation or overtime, something that’s happened just once before, in 1995. Five of those came down to a field goal. Among the seven game-winning field goals so far was Tucker’s 27-yarder as time expired that gave the Ravens the victory over the New England Patriots last weekend in a rematch of the AFC championship game. In that title game, Billy Cundiff missed a 32-yard field goal in the closing seconds. In the encore, Tucker — who took the job away from Cundiff in training camp — drove his kick just inside the right upright. “Bottom line is it went in,” Tucker said. “That’s all I care about. It went in.” Patriots coach Bill Belichick wasn’t so sure and he was fined $50,000 this week for grabbing a replacement official’s arm after the game as he tried to see if the call was reviewable. It wasn’t. Tucker, who beat out Cundiff with a perfect preseason, attributes his success to lessons he received from head coach John Harbaugh, special teams coach Jerry Rosburg and kicking consultant Randy Brown. “I feel like I’m kicking the best I ever kicked,” Tucker said. “Took a little work, took a couple of days, and now I feel like I’m striking the ball as confidently as I ever have.” He’s not the only one who feels that way.

DENVER — The men in stripes have drawn so much attention this season that some interesting developments on the football field have gone largely unnoticed, like a big spike in field goal accuracy. NFL teams combined for a record 2,287 points in the first three weeks of the season thanks to a record 248 touchdowns. Kickers have done their part in this proliferation of points, converting 182 field goal attempts and missing just 15 for a 92.4 percent clip — the best three-week start ever. The three-week mark tends to be a precursor for the entire season, with the final accuracy rate dipping two or three percentage points as the weather gets worse and the pressure rises. That means the record set in 2008 of 84.5 percent could be obliterated this season. The league-wide field goal percentage last season was 82.9 percent, second-highest all-time. Through three weeks last season, the number was 85.8 percent, according to STATS LLC. If this year’s figure drops a similar 2.9 percentage points, it would end up at 89.5 percent, an enormous jump, statistically speaking.

Why this year? Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater, the most accurate kicker in league history from 50 yards and out, said he thinks this year’s spike is the culmination of several factors ranging from better athletes to improved coaching and superior training. “Guys are just getting better and better,” Prater said. “You get guys who are veterans in there and they learn from their mistakes and don’t want to repeat them.” Yet, it’s not just the icy veined veterans who are nailing their kicks. Kickers coming out of college are having immediate success, too, much like the better-prepared rookie quarterbacks who no longer have to bide their time as backups. Heading into this weekend’s slate beginning with Thursday night’s Cleveland-Baltimore game, the Ravens’ Justin Tucker, St. Louis’ Greg Zuerlein and Minnesota’s Blair Walsh were a combined 22 for 22, with each rookie having kicked at least a 55-yarder. Tucker and Walsh have gamewinners already. Tucker’s beat New England 31-30 last weekend as time expired and Walsh’s came in overtime against Jacksonville after he kicked a 55-yarder as time expired in regulation. “There’s more camps for kids com-

ing up the ranks now,” Prater said. “You can get a good head start on it.” During their high school years, both Walsh and Tucker attended kicking camps in California run by Chris Sailer, who kicked for UCLA in the 1990s.

Better athletes Kickers are also in the weight room more, employ specialized training and superior techniques, kick on more favorable surfaces, generally are better coached and are used more effectively and efficiently on game day. They benefit from better athleticism than their predecessors, come almost exclusively from soccer backgrounds, are aided by an increased emphasis on special teams and rule changes, and even by playing some of their games indoors. It all adds up to greater accuracy. “Coaches are starting to let more opportunities happen, which will increase the percentage,” Walsh said. “I just think guys are really starting to perfect what they do, and you’re seeing a lot more great kickers today than you probably did in the past. You’d have a handful of great

kickers and the rest would be pretty good, but not elite, but I think there’s a ton of elite kickers in the NFL right now.” The success rate has risen steadily from all distances, short and long, during the Super Bowl era. In 1967, for instance, barely 51 percent of all field goal attempts were good. Now, nine in 10 are splitting the uprights, which were moved to the back of the end zone in 1974. Back then, kickers were often converted linemen who happened to have strong legs. Now, every kicker in the NFL played soccer as a kid and all employ the soccer-style kick that has improved place-kickers’ accuracy over the decades. Hall of Fame kicker Lou “The Toe” Groza made 54.9 percent of his field goal attempts, a percentage that would get him run off the roster today, not enshrined in Canton, Ohio.

Key factors Kickers aren’t just more accurate, but with such parity in the league, they’re more important than ever. Through Week 3, 28 games were decided by one score, tied with 1988 for the most such games through

Stars of the game Prater’s three field goals against Houston last week moved him past Jason Elam as the most accurate kicker in team history at 81 percent, and his 53-yarder made him 13 for 17 from 50 yards and out for a 76.5 percent clip, the best in league history with a minimum of 10 attempts. Ryan Succop’s club-record sixth field goal gave Kansas City a 27-24 win in overtime at New Orleans last weekend. He was a perfect six for six on kicks ranging from 25 to 45 yards. Zuerlein, a sixth-round pick out of tiny Missouri Western, is eight for eight on field goals, including a 56yarder last week, one yard shy of the Rams franchise record. What impresses his coaches is his steely resolve that belies his inexperience. “I guess I’m just confident in my abilities,” Zuerlein said. “I expect to make the kick, so I don’t get nervous really.” Zuerlein said years spent playing soccer probably account for his explosive leg power, not anything he does in the weight room. “I can’t squat a house or anything like that,” Zuerlein said. “It’s probably about the same amount of weight just an average person might lift.” So far this season, there’s been nothing ordinary about NFL kickers.

As officials return, one is welcomed by name By Judy Battista New York Times News Service

It was just a few hours after the NFL had ended its labor dispute with locked-out game officials, and Ed Hochuli was already back to work. On Thursday morning, he was on the road, making the drive from Phoenix to Tucson, Ariz., for a settlement conference before a judge on behalf of one of his law firm’s clients. Arguing cases as a trial lawyer is remarkably complementary with Hochuli’s part-time job, both requiring the ability to react quickly and apply rules. By the time Hochuli got behind the wheel, football fans were already clamoring — for perhaps the first time — for this weekend’s officiating assignments. And along with feeling, “At least it’s not the replacement refs,” many of them were also left thinking, “But why didn’t we get Hochuli?” Hochuli has long been refereeing’s rock star, known as much for the fit of his striped shirts as the loquaciousness and precision of his penalty explanations. Fans email him, and he responds. There is a fake Twitter account in his honor (@HochulisGuns). There is a YouTube video, “I Want to Be Ed Hochuli.” After the agreement was reached, receiver Randy Moss said on Twitter that he had just found out “Ed Hochuli and the boys” were back. Players approach him before games asking to compare the size of their arms. But during the three-month lockout, Hochuli became something more — the beloved, bulgingbiceps embodiment of all that was missed. Gene Steratore got the call to be the first referee back on the field Thursday night in Baltimore, and he seemed to revel in the moment — with a sly grin, a tip of his cap and a hug from Ray Lewis. But it was Hochuli’s name that trended on Twitter as a settlement was reached late Wednesday, even though he played no public role in the negotiations. “What it proves to me is I am so much better when I keep my mouth shut and disappear,” Hochuli said in a telephone interview. “It’s amazing. I’ve never been so popular because I’ve been gone the last three months. I’m trying not to let it hurt my ego.” As it turns out, Hochuli will work the Cincinnati-Jacksonville game today, an anonymous assignment that calls into question the NFL’s sense of theater. It is a far cry from the last time Hochu-

NFL referee Ed Hochuli is perhaps the most widely known official in sports. The league’s referees returned to work this week after being locked out by the NFL’s owners for months.

li’s crew was on the field: for last season’s NFC championship game. But the fact that officials were prepared to return seamlessly on such short notice is largely thanks to Hochuli, who essentially did during the lockout what the league’s office of officiating does under normal conditions. Hochuli watched very little football during the lockout — a baseball fan, he was watching an Arizona Diamondbacks game last Monday night while Seattle and Green Bay played — but he spent dozens of hours each week making up rules tests, collecting and circulating game film, presiding over conference calls and organizing email round tables. Hochuli played linebacker at Texas-El Paso — “I was small, but I was slow” — and he took up officiating to earn some money during law school. He started in the NFL in 1990, and Mike Pereira, the former vice president for officiating who is now a Fox analyst, said Hochuli was the most knowledgeable rules expert in the entire league, destined to be mentioned among the legends of officiating with Jim Tunney, Jerry Markbreit and Red Cashion. Hochuli’s passion for officiating is so great that his son Shawn is a successful Pac12 Conference official, and the two critique each other after their games. During the lockout, Hochuli acted as a personal coach and cheerleader for his colleagues while they waited for a settlement.

“The guys were really down and hurting,” said Tunney, who talks regularly with Hochuli and listened in on some of his rules conference calls. “On one conference call a week or so ago, he said: ‘Before we start, let me tell you something. We need to be ready to go professionally. When we walk back on the field, we’re going to be the best officials they’ve ever had.’” Of course, what many people really want to see are Hochuli’s arms. At 61, Hochuli thinks that how officials present themselves affects how they perform. So he lifts weights four days a week and does cardio every day. The result: Hochuli looks as if he belongs on a football field. During the lockout, when an effort was made to tamp down criticism of the replacement officials, it was often said that the regular officials make mistakes, too. It has been four years since Hochuli blew his whistle and ruled that Jay Cutler, then Denver’s quarterback, had thrown an incomplete pass, not fumbled, at the Chargers’ 1-yard line in the final minute of a game against the Broncos. Hochuli knew almost immediately that he was wrong, and when the Broncos went on to score the winning touchdown, the avalanche of criticism began. Hochuli apologized repeatedly, but he received hate mail, and Jerry Jones, the Cowboys’ owner, told reporters he wasn’t surprised Hochuli was involved, because he was a “highly criticized” official. Before Hochuli was off the field, Pereira, then the league’s head of officiating, called the officials’ locker room in Denver. When Hochuli got there, he and Pereira talked for at least five minutes. “I knew it would make him want to think about quitting,” Pereira said. “He was so down. I walked him through his career and what he’s meant to the league and to officiating, and one call is never going to define his body of work. I wanted to prop him up and send him out of the stadium at least knowing he had the backing of the league. I wanted him to know, in my eyes, that he was one of the all-time best.” Hochuli did not quit, of course. And when he takes the field today, he will almost certainly receive a hero’s welcome. Hochuli predicts that the honeymoon for officials will probably last no longer than one quarter. Hochuli’s seems to have already run much longer.

DOVER, Del. — Could it really be true love between Denny Hamlin and Dover? So far, it’s at least a crush. His performance today will really determine the fate of this relationship. Trying his best to adjust his approach toward his least favorite track, Hamlin’s reignited courtship produced fantastic results Saturday when he turned a lap of 159.299 mph to win the pole at Dover International Speedway. Hamlin has been open in his disdain for the 1-mile concrete Hamlin oval and knew he’d have to conquer his Dover demons to keep his driven bid for his first career Cup championship rolling along. Hamlin, third in the points standings, turned to a sports psychologist for advice. The message for Hamlin was this, “Let your challenge for the week be to fall in love with this track.” Hamlin says the good karma, and a great No. 11 Toyota, all played a part in the turnaround. “I think that right now we have everything rolling,” Hamlin said. “That part of it is giving me a ton of confidence.” Hamlin is six points behind Brad Keselowski and seven points behind leader Jimmie Johnson. Johnson starts 11th as he chases history at Dover. He raced his way into the track’s history books in June with his seventh win on the concrete, matching the mark held by Hall of Fame drivers Richard Petty and Bobby Allison. No active driver owns the track like the five-time Sprint Cup champion. Johnson led 289 of the 400 laps and looked every bit like the driver who swept the two Cup races at Dover in 2002 and 2009. Johnson also won at Dover on Sept. 26, 2010 and he won the September 2005 race. Dover has traditionally given Hamlin fits. He has an average finish of 20.5 in 13 career starts at Dover. He finished 36th or worse during a four-race stretch from 2007 to 2009. He’s said he just doesn’t like the track known as the Monster Mile. Here’s a curve. On Saturday, he talked about winning. “We’ve got a car that’s very capable of staying in the front and hopefully we’ll have a shot to win,” Hamlin said. Hamlin won his 12th career pole, third this season, and, no surprise here, his first pole at Dover. He had never started better than third. Hamlin praised crew chief Darian Grubb, who led Tony Stewart to the championship last year, for putting the No. 11 in position to take the pole. “I think there’s a lot of drivers out there that could be able to do what I do with the cars that Darian has been giving me the last few weeks,” Hamlin said. “I’m going to give him pretty much all the credit and ride his back as long as it will hold me.” Nine other Chase for the Sprint Cup championship drivers filled the top 13. Clint Bowyer starts second and Martin Truex Jr. is third. Greg Biffle and Jeff Gordon start sixth and seventh. Kasey Kahne, Keselowski, Johnson, Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick are ninth through 13th. Stewart starts 24th and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is 25th for today’s race. “We didn’t have a good car in practice and we didn’t find any good speed or find any good balance,” Earnhardt said. “It’s going to be a tough day, I think. It’s going to be a tough race for us. We are just going to have to work hard and see what happens.”

Logano dominates in Nationwide win DOVER, Del. — Joey Logano dominated on the concrete to win the Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. Logano raced to his series-leading victory of the season Saturday, winning for the 16th time in Nationwide. Paul Menard was second, followed by Michael Annett, points leader Elliott Sadler and Kyle Busch. Logano swept the Dover races this season. He powered his way to the lead with six laps left in the June race. This win was easier. He led 184 of the 200 laps in the No. 18 Toyota. — The Associated Press

Ryder Continued from B1 “The last two putts were massive,” European captain Jose Maria Olazabal said after watching Poulter stay undefeated in this Ryder Cup by rolling in one last birdie putt from 12 feet. “That gives us a chance. It’s been done before in the past. Tomorrow is a big day.” Only one team has ever rallied from four points behind on the final day — the United States in that famous comeback at Brookline in 1999. Olazabal remembers it well. He was in the decisive match when Justin Leonard rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole. Is the Spaniard a big believer in fate? “I believe momentum will come our way,” Olazabal said. “Why not tomorrow?” Olazabal borrowed a page from that American team at Brookline by loading the top of his singles lineup with his best players. Luke Donald leads off against Bubba Watson, followed by Poulter against Webb Simpson, Rory McIlroy against Bradley and Justin Rose against Mickelson. U.S. captain Davis Love III put Tiger Woods — winless in the Ryder Cup for the first time going into Sunday — in the anchor position against Francesco Molinari, whom Woods beat in Wales last time. The final two matches Saturday were a showcase of what the Ryder Cup is all about — one brilliant shot after another, birdies on every hole, suspense at every turn. Donald and Sergio Garcia were on the verge of blowing a 4-up lead to hardcharging Woods and Steve Stricker, hanging on when Donald matched two birdies with Woods, including a tee shot into the 17th that plopped down 2 feet from the cup. Woods and Stricker lost all three of their matches, even though Woods made five birdies on the back nine for the second straight day. Woods was thinking more of the big picture. “Being up four is nice,” he said. “We are in a great spot right now to win the cup.” Poulter and McIlroy were 2 down with six holes to play against Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson when McIlroy made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 13th, and Poulter took it from there. “We had to make birdies, and wow! Five in a row. It was awesome,” Poulter said. “I’ve got the world No. 1 at my side, backing me up. It allowed me to hit some golf shots.” The crowd was still buzzing as it filed out of Medinah, and Poulter grinned. “It’s pretty fun, this Ryder Cup,” said Poulter, who raised his career record to 11-3-0. It’s been plenty fun for the Americans, who for the first time have not lost any of the four sessions since the Ryder Cup switched to the current format in 1979. Mickelson and Bradley were flawless in foursomes, matching a Ryder Cup record for largest margin with a 7-and-6 win over Donald and Lee Westwood. Mickelson and Bradley have been so

MVP Continued from B1 Cabrera does not do it all, and nobody is claiming that the Triple Crown categories perfectly define greatness. But if he does lead in all three, this is what it would mean: Cabrera hit the most balls over the fence, brought the most runs in to score and had the highest percentage of hits to at-bats — while becoming the first player in 45 years to lead in all three. That has to stand for something. History is one of baseball’s charms and, for a lot of fans, a reason to care so much about the game. Giving Cabrera the MVP seems to be the appropriate way to honor that achievement — if, indeed, he does it. If Cabrera wins only two of the categories, he joins a much less selective group. Since Yastrzemski’s feat, there have been 47 instances of a player leading his league in two of the Triple Crown statistics. In absence of a truly historic season, the award should go to Trout, who is so close to Cabrera in OPS (combined onbase and slugging percentage) that his edge on the bases and on defense puts him over the top. Even if he misses the Triple Crown, of course, Cabrera will be strongly considered, and last week in Detroit, his teammates stumped for his candidacy. Justin Verlander, who won the award last year, wore a T-shirt Monday endorsing Cabrera for MVP. “It just means you’re the best player in your league that year, and he’s been one of the best players — and consistently, the best player in baseball — for the last seven or eight years,” Verlander said. “I know it goes year by year, but think he deserves credit for that. “Kind of the way I put it is, you go into LA, and Trout’s not the guy. You know he’s

Charlie Riedel / The Associated Press

The United States’ Keegan Bradley reacts after making a putt on the ninth hole during a foursomes match at the Ryder Cup on Saturday at the Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill., as teammate Phil Mickelson celebrates in the background. The two players have teamed to go 3-0 at this Ryder Cup.

dominant that they have yet to play the 18th hole in any of their three matches. They didn’t play in the afternoon, part of the master plan by U.S. captain Davis Love III to make sure his players were fresh for Sunday. Love became the first U.S. captain since 1979 to make sure each of his players sat out at least one match before the final day. Now, he finds out if it will work. “We’re not disappointed,” Love said of the late rally by Europe. “We haven’t lost a segment yet, and we’re just going to try to keep that string going.” Despite the last two matches that swung momentum away from them, the Americans only have to look at their 10-6 lead — their largest since it was 10½-5½ in 1981 — to realize how close they are to winning back that 17-inch gold trophy. They only need 14½ points to win. That translates to four wins and a halve in the 12 singles matches, traditionally an American strength. And they have built this lead without getting a single point from Woods, who has lost his past five matches with Stricker in two Ryder Cups and a Presidents Cup. “I’ve played well the last two afternoons and didn’t get a point,” Woods said. “It’s tough. Yesterday I made a bunch of birdies and today I made five on the back nine and it just wasn’t enough.” His team has carried him along, though. Watson and Simpson rolled to a 5and-4 win in the afternoon, while Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar won for the second straight time in fourballs in a tight match. It was tied going to the par3 17th, a daunting shot from an elevated tee to a narrow green guarded by water. Johnson hit 8-iron to 20 feet and poured in the birdie putt, setting off the loudest cheer of a raucous week outside Chicago. They halved the 18th for a 1-up win. “Probably the loudest roar I’ve ever

good, and you know how talented he is and how good of a year he’s having, but he’s still not the guy you say, ‘I can’t let him beat us.’ That’s Pujols. But in our lineup, he is, and yet he still manages to beat you. That’s saying something.” Don Kelly, a Tigers utility man, said Cabrera deserved recognition for shifting positions to accommodate Prince Fielder. Established stars do not always switch willingly. “To move from first base to third base, I think, has been lost in the whole thing,” Kelly said. “That’s not an easy transition in itself, and then to put up even better numbers playing a different position this year? You’re talking about most valuable player — and to do that for a team, that’s valuable in itself.” In most cases, like the TroutCabrera comparison, the performance of a player’s team should be largely irrelevant. Voters tend to see it differently, placing greater emphasis on candidates who lead their teams to the playoffs. But value is value, whether it helps a team win 95 games or 75, and the MVP goes to an individual, not a team. The team award is the championship trophy. Sometimes, though, team performance is hard to ignore, and Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen suffers greatly because of it. McCutchen had a breakout season, and in July was the favorite to be National League MVP. But McCutchen has been ordinary over the past two months as his team has wheezed to the finish, likely to continue a streak of losing seasons that started in 1993. Two catchers — San Francisco’s Buster Posey and St. Louis’ Yadier Molina — deserve strong consideration. Excelling at the plate while playing such a demanding position is surely harder than any noncatcher realizes, and both have been dominant forces in

heard,” Johnson said. “In that situation, probably one of the best putts I’ve ever made.” The Americans had a 5-3 lead to start the day, and it was critical for the Europeans to make inroads. Instead, they saw more American red on the scoreboards and heard endless cheers erupt from all corners of Medinah. Leading the way was Bradley, the rock star of this Ryder Cup who was so fired up that he came out to the first tee well before his match to ask for noise. In alternate shot, the most difficult format, Bradley and Mickelson had six birdies in 10 holes, and their 7-and-6 win tied the Ryder Cup record last matched in 1991. Jim Furyk and Brandt Snedeker atoned for a Friday loss by beating McIlroy and Graeme McDowell in 18 holes, and the Americans took an 8-4 lead to the afternoon. All the momentum was on their side. The crowd felt it, and so did the players from both teams. “It was hard — very hard — to ignore the red on the board,” McDowell said. “It’s hard to ignore the noise that’s been made around the golf course. There’s blood in the water. They’re up for it.” That’s what made those last two matches so critical. Woods did not play Saturday morning, the first time he’s ever been at the Ryder Cup in uniform without a tee time, and he didn’t contribute much in falling so far behind. But he turned it around on the back nine, pointing to the cup when a birdie putt fell, screaming orders at his tee shot as the ball was in the air, looking like he was on the verge of a big comeback. Donald and Garcia, who had yet to win a point, made sure that didn’t happen. “That was big,” Donald said. “Having these matches turn our way has really given the European side a lift that we needed. It’s given us a heartbeat for tomorrow.”

lineups that withstood major losses during the season. Posey’s offensive numbers are better than Molina’s, and Posey plays his home games in a pitcher’s park. But Molina is a superior defender who throws out almost half of all potential base stealers. (Posey throws out fewer than 30 percent.) Fortunately, voters do not have to distinguish between Posey and Molina, at least at the top of the ballot. That spot belongs to Ryan Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers’ left fielder who won the award last season. Braun has played even better this year, and while the Brewers are unlikely to make the playoffs, that is mainly the fault of their late-inning relief, not Braun. Braun faced a 50-game suspension at the start of the season because of a failed drug test last October. He fought the punishment and won, to Major League Baseball’s cha-

grin, and some voters could choose to take a stand against him. But to do so would be to violate the spirit of the award. The MVP can be interpreted various ways — statistics, contributions to a winning team, historical significance — and that is part of what makes it so fascinating. But, irrefutably, the award signifies one season, and one season only. Braun has been active all season, without any positive drug tests. Braun’s ordeal last offseason is irrelevant, and with other top sluggers like Matt Kemp and Joey Votto missing time with injuries, Braun stands alone as the most productive hitter in the league.

Smith huge in WVU win vs. Baylor

Kelly leads Arizona State past Cal 27-17

The Associated Press MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Geno Smith threw for 656 yards and tied a Big 12 record with eight touchdown passes to lead West Virginia over No. 25 Baylor 70-63. Smith outdueled Baylor’s Nick Florence, who had a standout game of his own with 581 yards and five TDs. Baylor’s Terrance Williams set a Big 12 record with 314 yards receiving. The old mark was set minutes earlier by West Virginia’s Stedman Bailey, who had 303 yards and five TDs. Williams’ 8-yard scoring catch brought Baylor (3-1) within seven at 70-63 with 3:08 left. But Dustin Garrison ran for 17 yards on third down and the Mountaineers (4-0) ran out the clock. It marked the most points scored in a game involving a team ranked in The Associated Press poll. The previous record of 124 was set in No. 12 Oklahoma’s 82-42 win over Colorado in 1980. No. 1 Alabama. . . . . . . . . . . . . .33 Mississippi . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Amari Cooper caught two touchdown passes from AJ McCarron and Christion Jones returned a kickoff 99 yards for another score, leading No. 1 Alabama to a victory over Mississippi. The Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) trailed briefly, 7-6, for the first time in regulation since last year’s Tennessee game, a span of nine-plus games. The Rebels (3-2, 0-1) put up a fight against a team that had been walloping opponents by nearly 37 points on average, but still lost their ninth straight SEC opener. McCarron completed 22 of 30 passes for 180 yards and Eddie Lacy gained much of his 82 yards in the fourth quarter when Alabama put it away with Jeremy Shelley’s third and fourth field goals of the game. The Tide’s defense bailed out an offense that sputtered at times with three interceptions. No. 3 LSU. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .38 Towson. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .22 BATON ROUGE, La. — Zach Mettenberger connected with Odell Beckham Jr. five times for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and LSU overcame nagging offensive sloppiness. Mettenberger’s scoring strikes to Beckham went for 53 and 27 yards, and LSU’s quarterback finished with 238 yards passing. Still, Mettenberger missed some open receivers and his fumble — one of three LSU turnovers — led to the first of two touchdown runs by Towson’s Terrance West. West’s first TD run gave Towson, an FCS team, a stunning 9-7 lead in the second quarter before LSU responded with 24 straight points. J.C. Copeland, LSU’s 272-pound fullback, scored his third touchdown of the season on a 1-yard plunge, but was hurt in the fourth quarter and did not put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field. No. 4 Florida State . . . . . . . . . .30 South Florida . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 TAMPA, Fla. — EJ Manuel threw for 242 yards and a touchdown, helping Florida State remain unbeaten. Receiver Rashad Greene got the Seminoles going with a 10yard touchdown run, Christian Jones scored on a 12-yard fumble return and Penn State transfer Kevin Haplea had a 1-yard TD reception as the Seminoles (5-0) survived their first road test of the season by pulling away from a threepoint lead with two TDs and a field goal in the final 5:09 of the third quarter. Three years after returning to his hometown of Tallahassee to lead USF (2-3) to a 10-point upset of Florida State in his first college start, B.J.

No. 6 South Carolina . . . . . . . .38 Kentucky . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 LEXINGTON, Ky. — Marcus Lattimore ran for two touchdowns and Connor Shaw passed for another in the second half as South Carolina scored 31 straight points. Shaw was 15 of 18 for 148 yards as the Gamecocks (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) moved into a tie with Florida and Georgia atop the East division, with the Bulldogs coming to Columbia, S.C., next week. Lattimore rushed for 120 yards on 23 carries and Kenny Miles added a 17-yard score for South Carolina, which trailed Kentucky (1-4, 0-2) 17-7 after a ragged first half. The Gamecocks returned to score on five of six possessions thanks to Shaw, who hit Damiere Byrd with a 30-yard touchdown before Miles’ TD put them ahead to stay. Kentucky freshman Jalen Whitlow was 12 of 23 for 114 yards in relief of Maxwell Smith, who was knocked out on the first series with an ankle injury. No. 12 Texas . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 41 Oklahoma State . . . . . . . . . . . .36 STILLWATER, Okla. — David Ash threw three touchdown passes to Jaxon Shipley and Joe Bergeron scored on a 2-yard run with 29 seconds left to lift Texas. Ash directed the Longhorns (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) on a 75-yard scoring drive after the Cowboys (22, 0-1) had taken the lead on Quinn Sharp’s 23-yard field goal with 2:34 to play. Ash connected with tight end D.J. Grant for a 29-yard pick up on fourth-and-4 to keep the drive going, and then Mike Davis outleaped Justin Gilbert on a 32-yard deep ball to set up Bergeron’s winning touchdown. Ash finished with 304 yards passing and his first interception of the season. J.W. Walsh started in place of injured Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt and threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns. No. 14 Ohio State . . . . . . . . . . . 17 No. 20 Michigan State. . . . . . . 16 EAST LANSING, Mich. — Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 130, and Urban Meyer won his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Miller put Ohio State (5-0, 10) ahead 17-13 with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in check. Meyer becomes the third coach to start 5-0 in his first season at Ohio State. Carol Widdoes did it in 1944, and Earle Bruce in 1979. Michigan State (3-2, 0-1) has lost four home games in a row against Ohio State. No. 15 TCU. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .24 SMU. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16 DALLAS — Casey Pachall threw two touchdown passes, Jason Verrett had two interceptions and TCU extended its FBS-best winning streak to 12 games. TCU (4-0) has won 11 of 13 over SMU and regained the Iron Skillet trophy, which goes to the winner of the Dallas-Fort Worth rivalry. The Horned Frogs’ previous loss came last season at home to the Mustangs (1-3). The game was played in a heavy rain-

storm. The rain picked up in intensity around kickoff and never relented as the game progressed. SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert threw five interceptions, including one by Verrett on a desperation pass to end the game. The Mustangs turned the ball over six times. No. 17 Clemson . . . . . . . . . . . .45 Boston College. . . . . . . . . . . . .31 BOSTON — Tajh Boyd threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns and ran in another for Clemson. Boyd completed 28 of 38 passes and ran 11 times for 42 yards and a TD for Clemson (4-1, 11 Atlantic Coast Conference). DeAndre Hopkins caught 11 passes for 197 yards for the Tigers, who bounced back after blowing a two-touchdown lead and losing 49-37 to No. 4 Florida State last week. Andre Ellington ran 25 times for 132 yards and a touchdown for Clemson. No. 19 Louisville . . . . . . . . . . . .21 Southern Miss . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17 HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Senorise Perry rushed for 118 yards and two touchdowns, Jeremy Wright added 84 rushing yards and Louisville rallied in a downpour. Louisville (5-0) trailed 17-6 midway through the second quarter, but scored 15 unanswered points for the win, even though star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was rendered nearly useless because of a driving storm that soaked the Roberts Stadium turf. Perry scored both touchdowns during the rally. His 1-yard score pulled Louisville within 17-12 just before halftime and his 14-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter proved to be the game winner. Louisville is off to its best start since 2006. Southern Miss (0-4) is in the midst of its worst start since 1976. Southern Miss had a chance to win on the final drive, but a halfback pass by Desmond

Johnson fell incomplete on fourth down. No. 22 Nebraska. . . . . . . . . . . .30 Wisconsin . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .27 LINCOLN, Neb. — Taylor Martinez guided four straight scoring drives against a tiring Wisconsin defense in the second half to lead Nebraska’s comeback from a 17-point deficit. Martinez scored on a 38-yard run, threw a 10-yard TD pass to Kyler Reed and set up Brett Maher for the tying and go-ahead field goals. Maher’s 41-yarder with 9:41 left gave the Huskers (3-1, 1-0) their first lead in the Big Ten opener. Danny O’Brien, who replaced Joel Stave, tried to bring back the Badgers (3-2, 01) with under three minutes to play. But Montee Ball fumbled at midfield on a fourth-and1, and Martinez took a knee three times to run out the last minute. Martinez ran for 107 yards and threw for 181 yards and two touchdowns. Stave passed for 214 yards and a touchdown. No. 24 Boise State . . . . . . . . . .32 New Mexico. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .29 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Joe Southwick passed for 311 yards and three touchdowns and Timmy Smith knocked down a fourth-down pass with two minutes to go for Boise State. Boise State (3-1, 1-0) led by 25 points at halftime after turning three Lobos’ fumbles into 18 points. New Mexico (2-3, 0-1) turned two Broncos’ second-half fumbles into touchdowns to help close the gap. The Lobos did not throw a pass in the second half until its final play, but baffled the Broncos with their triple-option offense. Jay Ajayi had 118 yards and a touchdown on six carries for Boise State. New Mexico quarterback Cole Gautsche scored twice and added a 2point conversion, rushing for 71 yards on 11 carries. Kasey Carrier added 86 yards on 18 carries with a touchdown.

Th e Associated Press BERKELEY, Calif. — After California cut a 13point deficit down to three, Arizona State coach Todd Graham had no hesitation putting the ball in Taylor Kelly’s hands in his first conference road game. Kelly responded by coolly leading the Sun Devils down the field, capping the drive with his third touchdown pass that helped send California to its worst start ever under coach Jeff Tedford with a 27-17 victory on Saturday. “I have total belief and trust in him,” Graham said of his first-year starter. “This guy is poised. He’s a person that you have no doubt you can depend on. Is he the best physical person in the world? Probably not. But he makes all the right throws and all the right decisions.” Kelly completed 26 of 45 passes for 292 yards, throwing two touchdowns to Kevin Ozier and one to Darwin Rogers. Arizona State (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) did the rest on defense, recording six sacks to improve its impressive start under Graham and win at Cal for the first time since 1997. “We haven’t done anything,” Graham said. “We haven’t accomplished anything yet, but I know we’re going to get better.” The start of the season hasn’t gone nearly as well for Cal (1-4, 0-2) and Tedford despite the team returning to renovated Memorial Stadium. The Golden Bears have lost three straight games and are off to their worst start since losing their first 10 games in 2001 under Tom Holmoe — who was succeeded the following season by Tedford. After a strong start to his tenure, Tedford has a losing record since the start of the 2009 season. His only win this year came against Southern Utah of the FCS, and the frustration from fans was evident all afternoon. “We have to get better,” Tedford said. “We got beat by a team who played better than we did. We have to improve and keep working. ... The only way we are going to get better is by working at it. The Sun Devils, who lead the Pac-12 in scoring and total defense, harassed Zach Maynard all afternoon, proving they can be

just as effective against a starting quarterback after feasting on backups the previous three weeks. Will Sutton and Junior Onyeali spent much of the day in Cal’s backfield, each recording two sacks and giving Maynard little time to throw. “I just watched them make plays and I took my shuffle steps and clapped for them,” linebacker Brandon Magee said. “They kind of dominated the front the whole game. The D-line has been our focal point for the first five games.” Maynard was inaccurate when he did have time. He finished nine for 28 for 126 yards with a touchdown. Isi Sofele rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown. UCLA . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .42 Colorado . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 14 BOULDER, Colo. — Brett Hundley, Johnathan Franklin and the rest of the UCLA Bruins bounced back from a tough defeat, beating Colorado 42-14 Saturday night in their first trip to Boulder since 2003. Hundley threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for two scores as the Bruins (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) improved to 30-10-2 in the weeks following a loss that dropped them from the rankings. They tumbled from No. 19 last week with a loss at home to Oregon State. Franklin set the tone early, running for 97 of his 111 yards in the first half as the Bruins jumped ahead 21-7. The Buffaloes (1-4, 1-1) were driving in the third quarter when they were stuffed on fourth-and-1 at midfield, then coughed up the ball on their next two possessions.

Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks (7) runs around the attempted tackle by Arizona’s Jourdon Grandon during the first half of Saturday night’s game at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Ariz.

Beavers Continued from B1 The Beavers quarterback moved the offense 75 yards in 10 plays for the TD pass to Hamlett that gave coach Mike Riley his 75th win at Oregon State, breaking Lon Stiner’s school record. Storm Woods ran for 161 yards and a touchdown for the Beavers, off to their first 3-0 start since 2002. Markus Wheaton caught 10 passes for 166 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and Brandin Cooks caught nine passes for 149 yards for the Beavers. Arizona’s Matt Scott threw for a career-high 403 yards and three touchdowns, but had two interceptions, including one near midfield in the final minute. Ka’Deem Carey ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns for Arizona, which has lost two straight after opening 3-0. Oregon State had a strange, stop-and-start season before arriving in the desert. The Beavers had their

opener against postponed due to a hurricane, faced a ranked opponent the second week, followed by a bye and another ranked opponent. They no trouble keeping a rhythm, knocking off No. 13 Wisconsin at home and No. 19 UCLA in the Rose Bowl behind a stingy defense and Mannion’s arm. Oregon State kept the same theme going early against Arizona. Mannion was sharp early, hitting Cooks on a 57-yard pass in the first quarter to set up a 2-yard touchdown pass to Wheaton in the back of the end zone. Next series, Mannion hit Wheaton for a 51-yard gain, leading to Romaine’s 30-yard field goal. Mannion found Kevin Cummings next, on a 38-yard pass to position Tyler Anderson for a 1-yard touchdown dive that put the Beavers up 17-0. Oregon State’s defense looked pretty good, too — at least for a while. The Beavers bogged Ari-

zona down in the first quarter and held when the Wildcats had their first sustained drive, which ended with John Bonano pushing a 30-yard field goal wide right after Scott was called for intentional grounding. That wasn’t a good sign for the Wildcats, who went zero for six in the red zone in a 490 loss to Oregon last week. Arizona managed to end its red-zone woes late in the second quarter, though, when the officials checked the replay to see if Carey fumbled at the 1-yard line and determined he actually went into the end zone for a score that cut Oregon State’s lead to 17-7. That drive seemed to be the spark the Wildcats needed. Arizona kept rolling on its opening drive of the second half, quickly marching 91 yards in 10 plays for a 3-yard pass from Scott to Hill. The Wildcats needed a minute to score again, this one a 24-yard run up the middle by Carey, who carried a couple of Oregon State defenders

Ducks Continued from B1 Then Patterson stepped in front of Connor Halliday’s pass for Oregon’s third interception return for a TD in two games. After Washington State (2-3, 0-2) went three-and-out, Barner scored on a 10-yard run to cap the 21-point spurt in just more than four minutes. Barner finished with four total touchdowns, including scoring runs of 22 yards in the first quarter and an 80-yarder in the fourth to go along with a 30-yard touchdown reception in the first half. His 195 yards rushing was the second-best rushing game of his career behind the 201 yards he had against Fresno State earlier this season. The Ducks started the second-half with their longest scoring drive — by plays — of the season, a methodical 18-play march that ate up more than 6 minutes. They ran nine times and threw nine times on the drive and only three times faced third down. The last came from the Cougars 4 when Barner went in motion and the middle opened for quarterback Marcus Mariota to hand off to Thomas, who plowed in for his fifth rushing TD of the season. Before Washington State got a chance to answer, Patterson was stepping in front of a pass intended for Gabe Marks and racing untouched

the other direction for a score. Patterson joined Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Troy Hill with returning interceptions for touchdowns this season. After another three-andout by the Cougars and a short punt, Oregon needed just seven plays for Barner to find the end zone for the third time and a 44-19 lead. Barner put a cap on his night and an explosive second half when he escaped a pileup near the Oregon sideline and skirted free to run 80 yards early in the fourth quarter. His four total TDs is second behind a five-touchdown performance in 2010 against New Mexico. Mariota finished 21 of 32 passing for 169 yards, one touchdown

and two interceptions in the first road start of his career. Thomas had just six touches in the first half for a total of 33 yards and no play longer than 15. He got four touches on the first drive of the second half alone including the capping TD run. He also got his first kickoff returns of the season after most teams had refused to kick toward the speedy sophomore, but his longest return was 19 yards. Washington State continued its series of playing once a year at the home of the Seattle Seahawks and for the foreseeable future it will be either Oregon or Oregon State as the foe. While the crowd of 60,929 was mostly

into the end zone with him to put Arizona up 21-17. Scott made a mistake on the next drive, when Jordan Poyer missed an interception at midfield, then got it when the ball caromed off Richard Morrison. That set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Woods to give Oregon State the lead back. Woods followed with a mistake of his own, losing a fumble at Oregon State’s 40. Scott then threw to the corner of the end zone to Dan Buckner, who’s over-the-shoulder, 16-yard TD catch put the Wildcats up 28-24. Mannion’s turn was next. Using a pump fake, he got the entire right side of Arizona’s defense to bite and winged a 20-yard touchdown to Wheaton that put the Beavers back out front. Scott answered, marching the Wildcats for a 7-yard touchdown pass to Hill, who dived in the final yard to make it 35-31. He just left too much time for Mannion and the Beavers.

crimson, there was plenty of green and highlighter yellow that made the trip north to see the Ducks first road game of the season. Connor Halliday threw for 348 yards and Marquess Wilson had 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown to become Washington State’s alltime leader in yards receiving. But the Cougars had no ground game finishing with (minus)-8 net yards rushing. Halliday was sacked seven times. Washington State has proved a somewhat problematic foe for the Ducks the past few years. In 2010 in Pullman, the Cougars hung around into the third quarter before losing 43-23 and last year in Eugene, Washington State trailed just 15-10 at halftime before getting overrun in the second half. Saturday night was the same, with the Cougars falling behind 20-3 late in the first quarter. Washington State scored 16 of the next 19 points, getting a 2-yard TD run from Carl Winston following Teondary Caldwell’s 92-yard kickoff return, and Brett Bartolone’s 26-yard touchdown reception to pull within 23-19 at the half. The Cougars had a chance to go to the break with the lead, driving to the Ducks 17 late in the half before three straight sacks of Halliday forced Washington State to punt. That proved to be the Cougars last chance to hang around.

Portland State falls to Northern Arizona, 24-10 The Associated Press FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Cary Grosscart had 262 yards passing and two touchdowns, Zach Bauman ran for 92 yards and a score, and Northern Arizona kept its momentum Saturday, beating Portland State 24-10 for its first four-game winning streak since the 2009 season. Bauman opened the scoring for the

Lumberjacks (4-1, 2-0 Big Sky) with a 7yard run in the first quarter, capping a 75-yard drive. Earlier on the drive, Bauman had become the fourth NAU running back to reach 3,000 yards rushing for his career. Later in the first quarter, Grosscart, who was 24 of 34, found Beau Gardner for a 1-yard score. He then hit Drew

Emanuel from 30 yards out midway through the third. Grosscart completed passes to 11 different receivers.

1 killed, 2 injured in crash near La Pine • Another fatal accident occurred Friday north of Klamath Falls By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

One woman was killed and two people injured in a traffic crash near La Pine on Saturday afternoon. Candis Connolly, 28, of La Pine, died at the scene following a two-vehicle collision on State Rec Road about a halfmile west of the intersection with Huntington Road, Sgt. Joe DeLuca of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office said. The crash was reported

shortly before 4 p.m., DeLuca said, and as of 7:45 p.m., State Rec Road was closed to allow law enforcement personnel to investigate the crash. Two other persons, one a passenger in Connolly’s vehicle and the second the driver of the other vehicle, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. One was taken to St. Charles Bend by helicopter, the other by ambulance. DeLuca said additional details about the two injured

people were not available as of Saturday night. The La Pine crash was the second fatal crash along the U.S. Highway 97 corridor in just over 24 hours. Just before 5 p.m. Friday, a motorcycle passenger was killed and the motorcycle operator seriously injured when they pulled in front of a commercial truck about a mile north of Klamath Falls. Passenger Diane Denise Bowden, 43, of Euless, Texas,

died at the scene, while 63-year-old Roderick Darryl Washington Sr., of Los Angeles, was taken first to a hospital in Klamath Falls and then transferred to Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. Oregon State Police investigators believe Washington was on the southbound shoulder of the highway intending to make a U-turn when he pulled out in front of the southbound truck. — Reporter: 541-383-0387,

Bagley, Balyeat vie for judge By Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

In the race for the next Deschutes County Circuit Court judge, both candidates say the choice comes down to experience. For Beth Bagley, it’s her experience in the courtroom and with criminal law that distinguishes her. For Andy Balyeat, it’s his more than 26 years of experience in a variety of areas, from family to contracts to appellate law that separates him. Bagley, a prosecutor with the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office, and Balyeat, a senior partner with Balyeat & Eager LLP, will square off in the Nov. 6 election. The winner will replace Michael Sullivan, who is retiring after being on the bench since 1988.

Volunteers help people with disabilities to kayak By Scott Hammers The Bulletin

ELK LAKE — Gary Johnson never saw it coming. Last July, the Redmond resident and a friend slipped under the snow gate on the McKenzie Highway to ride their bikes to the top of the pass. On the way back down they were “bombing it,” in Johnson’s words, and somehow he didn’t see the metal gate stretched across both lanes. Johnson slammed into the gate at high speed, severing his spinal cord between the fifth and sixth vertebrae, and rendering himself paralyzed from the chest down. Saturday, Johnson was among new friends and the crew from Oregon Adaptive Sports for a day of paddling on Elk Lake. With help from OAS and volunteers from Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe and Wanderlust Tours, around a dozen people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities took to the water, many for the first time. For Johnson, a triathlete

and four-time Pole Pedal Paddle solo competitor before his bike crash, kayaking was nothing new. But being lifted in and out of his boat, the foam shims used to keep him upright in the cockpit, and the inner tubes, zipties, and pool noodles assembled to allow him to grip a paddle were completely

foreign until Saturday. Like everything else in his life post-accident, kayaking is taking a little getting used to, Johnson said. “It went pretty good,” he said. “It’s kind of a work in progress.” Christine Brousseau, executive director of OAS, said after 15 years of providing

skiing opportunities to those with physical challenges, the organization is making a big push to find summertime activities for disabled Oregonians. Several OAS athletes joined a golf outing at Awbrey Glen earlier this month, she said, and next year, OAS is aiming to acquire some handcycles to take a group on a cycling trip. “It was a natural fit to expand to year-round activities just because of where we live,” Brousseau said. “The opportunities are endless.” Paddling has the potential to be a great crossover sport, Brousseau said, as standard boats require only minor modifications to be used by those with disabilities. People who use a wheelchair often develop powerful upper bodies and quickly become strong paddlers once introduced to the sport. Geoff Babb of Bend said summertime sports will be a good addition.

As a deputy district attorney, Bagley said she’s spent countless hours in the Deschutes County courthouse and in trials. “I don’t believe that the amount of experience I have is outmatched by anybody,” she said. “I’m (in court) on a daily basis.” It’s her consistent presence in the court that will allow her to quickly get up to speed as a judge, she said, because she already has relationships with the judges and staff and understands the way the court works. Bagley said her role as a Bend-La Pine school board member and her involvement with community groups means she’ll be able to make good decisions. “Ultimately a judge makes decisions that affect people in the community and deal face-to-face with people of the public and sort through and solve problems and resolve issues.” Bagley said she’s already working on ways to make the court run more smoothly. She worked with judges and the court’s trial administrator and in February launched an early disposition program, which expedites low-level nonviolent misdemeanor crimes. See Judge / C2

Freight business to Bend looks to be heavy Judging from the looks of things at the railroad freight

YESTERDAY warehouse here, one concludes that Central Oregon is enjoying prosperity, as it is. The big building is full of goods, the platforms are piled high and additional carloads are arriving every day consigned to merchants and others of the interior. For Burns there is at least 100,000 pounds waiting to be transported across country, and the

three autos of Furst Bros. are being run to capacity to move this big batch of freight before winter sets in. The volume of freight ever since the railroads began operation last November has been large for a new country like this. While compilation of the exact figures would be a laborious undertaking, Depot Agent Corbett says he is quite sure that the daily average is 8 cars. This gives something

like 2,600 carloads in eleven months, the time the roads have been operating to this point.

Outgoing freight in September was 81 cars The freight business which the railroads are doing here is by no means all tonnage consigned to this point, although the latter is quite heavy as reported to The Bulletin last week.

During the month which closed Monday the roads carried out of Bend 81 cars of freight. A surprising amount of this was what in known in shipping terms as “merchandise,” there being 25 cars. Livestock constituted 39 carloads — 36 of sheep, 2 of cattle and 1 of horses. The cattle were shipped Sunday to Portland by S.S. Stearns from his La Pine range. See Yesterday / C2



Judge Continued from C1 “It saves time and saving time always saves money, and it frees up court space and time and frees up time to deal with more pressing matters,” Bagley said. About 20 cases each month go through the program, and Bagley said it takes an average of 37 days for the case to go from the defendant’s first appearance to completion. In addition to the work she’s already done, Bagley said she’d be eager to be involved in conversations about the budget and how best to move cases forward more quickly. She said she would encourage conversations with the DA’s Office, defense and other attorneys to find suggestions for how time issues in the courts could be resolved. “I think right now that is probably the only problem I should be focusing on, in the amount of time that the courthouse is open and available (how do we) maximize the number of cases that can be processed and do that as appropriately and expediently as possible?” Bagley noted that these days, when judges get on the bench they often stay there until they retire. Because she’s in

Strike water and good clay Water at 45 feet in a well dug at a cost of $3.65, and the discovery of excellent fire clay, is the good news to the homesteaders in Millican Valley, and incidentally to all the people of Bend who are interested in the development of the southeast territory. H.F. Dyer, who helped dig the well, said “The well is four feet in diameter and we have a big head of water. We had to curb it only 8 feet, the rest of the earth standing as firm as a curbed wall. The entire cost of the well, excepting our work, was $2.40 for lumber, $1 for rope and 25 cents for nails.

Prineville railway has gain in traffic from lumber Charles W. Woodruff, manager of the City of Prineville railroad, reports an increase in traffic over the municipal line in the past year. He states that the increase in traffic is because of the lumber which is shipped over it. The Pine Products mill and the Hudspeth mill both have been shipping over the local line. Also 98 cars of livestock have been shipped so far this month. Next summer the business over the only municipal line in the United States is expected to reach a new high when the new Alexander Yawkey mill starts shipping.

First power is generated at Bonneville Dam President Roosevelt stood today before the New Deal’s $51,000,000 dam site and coupled a promise to balance the budget in the next fiscal year with a policy of the “widest use” for the hydro-electric energy to be developed by this and similar projects. He forecast the possibility of new Pittsburghs — vast cities of whirling machinery — arising to concentrate a great industrial population on the rural landscapes immediately adjacent to these vast undertakings. But Roosevelt proposed instead that the power should be diffused over the countryside as widely as possible, to remote farmsteads and small communities so they may enjoy modern electrical blessings and thrive.

the middle of her career, “there is a benefit to having potential longevity. ... I don’t look at this as the capstone of my career as a lawyer. It’s an opportunity to start a new chapter and be able to provide decades of service to the community.” While Bagley’s focus has been in criminal trial work, she does not believe it puts her at a disadvantage. “Sixty percent of the cases coming through the court are criminal. At any given time four out of seven are dedicated to handling criminal matters.

They take constitutional priority,” she said. “I would say one of the things that really distinguishes me from my opponent is I’m the only candidate who has ever handled criminal cases as a defense attorney or a prosecutor in Oregon.” She also pointed to her work on the non-criminal docket, in areas like mental commitments, stalking orders and violations of restraining orders, and said she’s eager as a judge to take on new types of cases. “I feel I have a good foundation to do that,” she said. “Once

Marciano snubbed by Liston The hurt showed in Rocky Marciano’s brown eyes even more than it did the night Joe Walcott rocked him with a right hand and almost fought him off for the heavyweight championship of the world. He has just walked into Sonny Liston’s training quarters in Chicago. Liston was doing a solo twist in front of a grinding record recorder and Marciano walked up to him. “Hiyah, Sonny,” said the man who retired as undefeated heavyweight champion of the world. Liston gave him a blank stare and ignored the outstretched hand. “Uh,” he replied coldly, “Hiyah.” Later, looking out through the steamy windows, Marciano shook his head. “He didn’t even say ‘Hiyah, Rock’ or ‘Hiyah, Champ’ or anything. It was like he was standing in a vacuum and I was a nobody. Like he didn’t even see me, or I was a bug, or something.” Liston was not a nice man to any of those who had come in to see him try on the disputed gloves he will use when he battles Floyd Patterson in Comisky Park tonight for the heavyweight title which Marciano once wore. Marciano stood in a corner and the massive hands which clubbed such as Joe Louis, Walcott, Ezzard Charles and Archie Moore into submission in an uninterrupted march of 49 victories clenched into frustrated fists. The Rock looked out at the infield fences and his voice, when it came, was soft and without reproach. “He shouldn’t be this way,” Marciano asserted. “I know how it is when you are waiting for a big bout which means so much. But you never forget to be nice to people. What would a man such as this be like if he won the title.” Liston, pressed again for the radio interview, raised his voice in exasperation but finally stalked up to where Marciano stood. His voice was flat, unfriendly and unemotional as he gave short answers to a few questions Marciano asked him. It was over in a minute. “You should have belted him one,” someone suggested on the way out. Marciano’s fists clenched again. “Maybe I would have,” he

Note to Readers: That night Liston knocked out Patterson in 2 minutes and 6 seconds of the first round.

Timberline Lodge turns 50 Rarely have man and nature worked together as beautifully and majestically as at Timberline Lodge on Oregon’s Mt. Hood, but this weekend’s 50th anniversary rededication almost did not come to pass. The ski lodge of native stone and timber, now a historic landmark and museum, was built during the Depression years as a federal make-work project. President Franklin D. Roosevelt traveled by motorcade from Portland to dedicate the newly completed lodge on Sept. 28, 1937, calling it “a monument to the skill and faithful performance of workers on the rolls of the Works Progress Administration.” But the lodge closed during World War II, when time and gasoline were spent on more important things than skiing. It fared little better after the war, as a series of private operators faced financial difficulties that left its broad, woodframed halls dark and empty due to unpaid utility bills. But in 1955, Richard Kohnstamm became the lodge’s savior and began providing the vision and persistence needed to make to make the ski resort a successful, vital part of Oregon’s economy and image. Borrowing money from his brother and sister, Kohnstamm pooled all of his resources and formed a company to run the lodge, beginning improvements that took 17 years. He now says he had no idea it would be so tough to run a hotel in the beloved landmark. “I couldn’t quit, I had too much invested,” he said. “I had to see it through.” The ski boom of the 1960s did the trick for Timberline, bringing thousands of newcomers to the lodge, which was made to last of materials native to the Pacific Northwest. By 1969 the lodge was drawing 700,000 visitors a year. Oregon’s congressional delegation also played a key role in getting funds to supplement the Forest Service’s limited budget. An east wing convention center, part of Timberline’s original design, was completed in 1975. That year also marked the start of the Friends of Timberline, a volunteer fund-raising support group. The group helped recreate the lodge’s furnishings working from original designs, and raise $2 million to pay for the restoration. For Kohnstamm, the real joy comes in the days spent caring for the lodge, now a part of Northwest lore and a living monument, as well as a tourist attraction.

you’re in the courtroom, the laws governing civil trials and criminal trials ... are the same. ... As a trial attorney who’s been trying cases for as many years as I have, it’s the same foundation that a civil litigator has.” Bagley said she’s heard from a number of people who want to see more female representation on the bench. Two of the seven judges in Deschutes County are women. “I think this is a significant issue,” she said. “It’s not my campaign slogan but more and more people are telling me how important they think it is.”

Andy Balyeat Balyeat said he knows how important quality of life is for people in Central Oregon. “I moved here to raise my children, and a lot of people move here to retire,” he said. “Having a safe downtown and safe neighborhoods is paramount to maintaining that quality of life.” The attorney, who has lived in the area for 17 years and practiced law for more than 26 years, said he’d be a good judge because he would listen, be fair and help justice move more quickly in Central Oregon. He pointed to the Oregon State Bar poll, in which he

Kayak Continued from C1 After a stroke in late 2005, Babb learned of the OAS ski program, but wasn’t sure skiing was for him. Along with limiting the use of his arms and legs, Babb’s stroke had damaged the part of his brain that helps the body regulate temperature, making a day on the mountain extra taxing. Babb eventually decided to go for it and has kept skiing with OAS for the past five seasons, tackling the downhill leg for one of two OAS Pole Pedal Paddle teams in May. Three years ago, he and his wife, Yvonne, bought a twoman kayak. Though they’ve been able to go paddling with no outside assistance, the

overwhelmingly beat Bagley. Balyeat worked as a criminal prosecutor early in his career in Ohio, and since then has focused on gaining “broad civil experience.” He has also served as an arbitrator for about 20 years, both privately and through the court’s mandatory arbitration in civil cases where the amount in contention is more than $50,000. And because he has an active appellate practice and routinely argues cases at the state and federal level, he said, his understanding of the law is deep. “I’ve tried cases all over the state of Oregon, and of a wide variety,” he said. “I can’t think of an area where I don’t have significant experience.” While he doesn’t maintain a criminal practice, Balyeat said, he often represents criminal defense attorneys who are being sued for malpractice, and as a result essentially retries the criminal case within the civil case to show there was no malpractice. “It’s that breadth and depth of experience,” he said. “I have tried hundreds of cases all over the state of Oregon. I have an active federal court practice, which I don’t think (Bagley does). I have an active appellate practice, which I don’t believe (Bagley) does.

Babbs came up to Elk Lake Saturday to spend time with OAS staff, volunteers and athletes. “I really like what they’re doing and try to support them,” Geoff Babb said. “It’s good to come out and spend time with other adaptive athletes.” One of the more seasoned OAS athletes at Saturday’s event was also one of the youngest, 6-year-old Emily Pfankuch. Born with spina bifida, a condition in which the spinal cord develops partially outside the body, Emily has never had the use of her legs, but has skied with OAS since she was 2. Jill Pfankuch, Emily’s mother, said the family has made the trip from their home in Salem to Central Oregon every

I’ve been an arbitrator, deciding cases as a judge for 17 years. I don’t think she has. ... I guess the difference is, she has a criminal background and I think the balance of the court would be better served having someone like me who not only has a criminal background but who can immediately handle a great variety of civil cases that come before the court.” As judge, Balyeat said he would focus on moving people through the court docket with expedience. “I would make good decisions swiftly and decisively and I think that’s what I can do,” he said. “I have a passion for law and people and I don’t view my role as lobbying the Legislature for more money or curing staffing problems. I want to be judge.” Balyeat believes he can use his experience around the state to find ways to speed up the local courts. “I can be a good, effective judge with the docket in front of me,” he said. “I really believe what people want more than anything else is fairness. They want to know they were heard and know that they were treated with fairness and that the judge understood both sides of the argument.” — Reporter: 541-617-7831,

other week during the ski season since Emily first learned to ski. Salem has hardly any sports opportunities for kids like Emily, Jill said, so OAS has been a big part of her life since the beginning. Despite being the only OAS athlete to spend the day on Elk Lake “slaying dragons and rescuing unicorns” — a game Emily and guide Melodie Buell developed while skiing Mt. Bachelor, but can’t fully explain — Emily doesn’t complain that she’s usually the only kid on an OAS outing, her mother said. “It’s what she knows,” Jill said. “She’s grown up in an adult world, doing adaptive sports.” — Reporter: 541-383-0387,

O N State Democrats hope Obama’s Student housing coattails will benefit them again developer eyes property near UO By Jonathan J. Cooper The Associated Press

SALEM — Oregon isn’t likely to determine the outcome of the presidential election this year, but the race for the White House could sway the outcome of other races in Oregon. Intense enthusiasm for Barack Obama helped Democrats build supermajorities in the Oregon House and Senate in the 2008 election. There’s little doubt Obama will win Oregon’s seven electoral-college votes again this year despite far less excitement among the electorate that propelled him to a 16-point victory here last time. But Democrats are hoping Obama’s coattails will still be long enough to help carry them to victory in a number of close races for state office. Republicans, meanwhile, hope they’re competing in a more comfortable environment than the one that walloped them up and down the ballot four years ago. “I think the president had some coattails in 2008. He’ll have some coattails in 2012 again,” said Trent Lutz, director of the Democratic Party of Oregon. “The biggest effect of that is how many people will actually turn out to vote and the enthusiasm of voters in general.” Democrats have carried Oregon in every presidential election since 1988, although Obama’s 16-point victory in 2008 was uncharacteristically high. George W. Bush came within 7,000 votes against Al Gore in 2000. Reliable public polling on the Oregon race has been scarce, but operatives across the political spectrum say they expect Obama to win Oregon, though probably by a smaller margin than his last one. They don’t expect either campaign to spend much money here beyond a standard get-out-thevote operation. Obama’s campaign has workers around the state as part of its effort to build “neighborhood teams” that

will “work together to re-elect President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket,” Paul Bell, a campaign spokesman, said in an email. Lutz said the state Democratic Party has a parallel operation to connect with Democratic-leaning voters who don’t consistently cast ballots. Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign has a field office in Beaverton and is also relying on volunteers who make phone calls from home, said Greg Leo, a spokesman for the Oregon Republican Party. Romney’s operation is more robust than John McCain’s was four years ago, Leo said, and McCain pulled his state director out of Oregon shortly after the GOP convention, he said. The enthusiasm that helped Democrats in 2008 has switched sides, Leo argues. “A lot of the most liberal Democrats are critical of Obama for not following through on all the promises he made,” Leo said. “There is a lot of enthusiasm this time on our side.” While Oregonians won’t be voting for the highest-profile offices of governor and U.S.

senator, a number of lowerlevel races are expected to be close. Democratic incumbents for secretary of state and labor commissioner are facing tough challenges from well-funded Republicans, and control of the Legislature is also at stake. Republicans hope to knock down the Democrats’ slim majority in the state Senate, although most of the 15 seats up for election this year are in Democratic-leaning districts. Both parties are competing fiercely in a handful of competitive House races — most of them in the Portland suburbs — that will determine control of the chamber. The House is currently tied after a strong GOP showing in the 2010 election wiped out the Democrats’ 60 percent supermajority, which gave them enough votes to raise taxes without needing Republican support. Democrats say the presidential race gives them the upper hand. “If Oregonians turn in their ballots, we expect to have a very good year,” said Rep. Tina Kotek of Portland, who leads Democratic efforts to pick up seats in the House. “Historical-

ly, we have picked up seats in presidential years, especially when there’s a strong top of the ticket.” Democrats are targeting Republicans in several districts that strongly supported Obama in 2008 and are likely to do so again, Kotek said, trying to tie Republicans to their party’s standard bearer. “They’re out there spreading the Mitt Romney message about tax cuts and giveaways to corporations,” she said. “My guess is: Oregonians are going to reject that Romney vision of the world, that half the country are moochers and deadbeats.” Rep. Andy Olson of Albany, who’s in charge of the GOP’s House campaign operations, said Republican candidates are more popular than Romney in their districts. Republicans currently control several districts where Democrats outnumber Republicans, he said. “That says to me there are a lot of independents as well as Democrats across the state that like the message, get the conservative values we have and want to move forward with Oregon and make Oregon better,” Olson said.

Wife: Slaying suspect renounced neo-Nazi beliefs The Associated Press OREGON CITY — A woman who identified herself as the wife of murder suspect Erik Meiser says she is Jewish and he is no longer a neo-Nazi. Kiva Gerber, 27, of California, told The Oregonian in a phone interview that she and Meiser have two children they are raising Jewish. “We are registered with a temple,” Gerber said. “We celebrated Passover at our house. We had a Seder.” Meiser, 37, has been charged with aggravated murder in the Sept. 17 stab-

gene Clinic building, clearing the site to build a proposed 230-unit apartment block for students, the first phase of a proposed 475-unit complex. The UO has seen steadily increasing enrollment, from 20,300 in 2007 to about 24,600 this fall. The UO Office of Institutional Research projects that enrollment will peak at somewhere near 25,150 in the following years. But some UO officials have talked of eventually increasing enrollment beyond that, perhaps to 30,000. The parcel on Franklin is small — a tad more than half an acre. About two-thirds of it is owned by a Clatskanie family — the Venators — who acquired it more than two decades ago, according to Lane County property records. The remainder is owned by the Ceteras family of Rumsey, Calif., who acquired their portion also more than two decades ago, according to Lane County records. The site has a Campbell Commercial Real Estate forsale sign on it, with a salepending label plastered on the sign. Dan Montgomery, the listing broker with Campbell, said a mix of commercial and residential housing is allowed under the commercial-2 zoning on the property. He said the sale is in escrow with the parties sorting out the paperwork. He declined to identify the buyer. The property previously housed a service station, which was torn down a number of years ago. Twelve stories is big by Eugene standards. The Hilton hotel in the city center has 12 stories. The proposed building would beat out some other prominent Eugene buildings: Prince Lucien Campbell Hall on the UO campus is a mere 10 stories. The Citizens Building on Oak Street in downtown is 10 stories.

bing death of 57-year-old Fritz Hayes, who discovered a burglar in his Lake Oswego home when he returned from a walk with his wife. Investigators said a machete with Meiser’s fingerprints and the victim’s blood was found in a nearby driveway. The killing triggered a fiveday manhunt that spanned the West Coast. The authorities described Meiser as having white-supremacist tattoos, and displayed a photo of one on his knuckles that spells out “Neo Nazi.”

Gerber says Meiser has covered up the tattoos. Defense attorney Jennifer Cooke, in court Friday, said media references to Meiser as a white supremacist could affect her client’s ability to get a fair trial. Meiser appeared at hearing via video to hear the charges against him. He is expected to enter pleas at an Oct. 22 hearing. His attorneys requested the extra time partly, they said, because of concerns about Meiser’s mental fitness to help in his own defense. Meiser has an arrest record

that spans nine states and more than 20 years. Authorities in Utah have an arrest warrant for Meiser that accuses him of aggravated assault at a bus stop on Sept. 8. Ogden, Utah, police said the victim’s face was “severely slashed” with a razor-style knife. Although Gerber identified herself as Meiser’s wife, she declined to say when they were married and wouldn’t discuss Meiser’s past or the accusations against him. Asked if she planned to come to Oregon she said, “I don’t know. I love him.”

EUGENE — How high is the demand for new University of Oregon student housing? Apparently high enough to fill a 12-story apartment tower on what is now an empty lot on the northeast corner of East Broadway and Ferry Street. A Chicago-based developer who specializes in student housing has submitted a preliminary inquiry to the city about building a student tower on the site. The first floor of the structure would be mostly for commercial tenants, with the remaining 11 floors dedicated to apartments plus a fitness center and outdoor deck, according to the project narrative the developer submitted earlier this month. The developer is Marc Lifshin, a partner in LG Development Group LLC. On its website, LG bills itself as “strongly focused on investments in education-related real estate, including student housing (acquisitions, redevelopments and new developments) and other campus-related real estate.” An arm of LG Development earlier this year broke ground on the first of two studenthousing towers in Tempe, Ariz., near the Arizona State University campus. The 266unit, 16-story first tower is due for occupancy next year, according to news reports and real estate industry websites. The second tower would be 18 stories, according to the reports. The paperwork Lifshin has submitted to Eugene doesn’t say how many units the Eugene tower would have. LG is just the latest entity to glom onto the UO enrollment boom. Numerous local and regional developers in the past several years have rushed to build student-housing complexes near the UO. Alabama-based Capstone is demolishing the former Eu-

Board member sues Baker School District BAKER CITY — A member of the school board has filed a lawsuit against the Baker School District, claiming his civil rights were violated when fellow board members voted to censure him. The Baker City Herald reports that Kyle Knight seeks $500,000 in compensatory damages and $200,000 in punitive damages. Knight, who just turned 21, has clashed with older board members and Superintendent Walt Wegener since taking office last year. The lawsuit says Knight has been treated differently than other school board members based on his political viewpoint, his religion and his opinions on policy. Supporters of an effort to recall two board members have criticized the vote to censure Knight and restrict his access

to district information. The superintendent says the school district gave the lawsuit to its insurance company.

Musician silenced by hand disorder Indian mascots face challenges recalls career spanning decades By Serena Markstrom The Register-Guard

EUGENE — If Stephane Grappelli had been the one to lose use of two fingers after a fire, it is possible “hot jazz” would not have been invented, or at least not by him and famed guitarist Django Reinhardt. After a tragic fire damaged Reinhardt’s hand, the young man used his injury to innovate. But the fretless violin Grappelli played would not have been so easy to adapt, requiring as it did fleet fingers for quick, precise changes. Those quick changes are no longer fun for local musician Brian Price, who played his last show with Hot Club Eugene on Sept. 15 in front of a packed house at the Jazz Station. The 63-year-old multi-instrumentalist is leaving professional music because of a hand disorder. He has been performing music since age 7, and he recently played his final concert — a farewell show with his other band: Spiritfarm. Although musically the two projects diverge quite a bit, both have been fun and satisfying for Price. Over the years, he has been in all sorts of groups, from blues to jazz to country, playing guitar, fiddle, mandolin and keyboards. But because of a hand condition called Dupuytren’s contracture, playing has become too painful. He has had to slow down in recent years. “I’ve sort of adjusted to some things,” he said seated at his piano in his Eugene living room. “The violin is not going to happen. Too many bad fingers.” The pinky finger of his left hand is bent down permanently in a dramatic fashion — at almost a right angle from the knuckle, with the longest part of the finger parallel to the palm. On the same hand, his pointer finger is not as bent, but an unwanted ball of tissue is forming on the palm under the scars from previous surgeries. The condition first ap-

Eugene musician Brian Price has had a long career, playing everything from jazz piano to the violin. Because of a hand condition called Dupuytren’s contracture, playing has become too painful and he is ending his professional career.

peared when Price was 35 and living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It wasn’t alarming to him. He figured doctors would be able to fix it. They did, but the surgical solution never lasted. When afflicted with Dupuytren’s, fascia from the hand extends beyond where it is useful, attaching gradually contracting cords to the tendons. Three surgeries later, Price does not think trying again will be worth the expense, especially after how rapidly his symptoms returned after his most recent surgery in 2006. In his early days as a Northern California musician, Price made money as a session player and touring artist. He played with the Jerry Garcia Band, the Grateful Dead and David Grisman. Janis Ian invited him on the road after he sat in with her band, he said. “I was kind of on the fringe of a bunch of famous people,” he said. Price remembers the time he saw Jerry Garcia at the airport headed to Eugene to play Autzen Stadium, and Price reminded him he’d never been paid for some session work. Garcia gave him some allaccess passes to the show, and Price gave those to his teenage niece. Price learned he did not fit

in well with musicians who liked to do drugs. He didn’t like being on the road away from his then-wife, so he said he decided to continue professionally, but part-time. Putting his college degree to work, he started working in math- and science-related jobs. Now, he is semiretired and does consulting work. In 1987, he visited his sister who lived in Eugene, and on a ski trip wound up sitting in with the fiddle-led Louisiana swamp rock band Etouffee. This area had everything he wanted, Price decided, after comparing school systems, housing and other practical matters. It took a while for him to find the right musicians to play with, he said, but about 20 years ago he found a musical brother in Percy Franklin, who then introduced him to Jim Daugherty. The three men started playing about 15 years ago under the name Spiritfarm, with various others in the band. Saying goodbye to the group has been a sad transition for all of them — as well as the band’s other two members: Erik Baker and Michael Anderson. But they all have known the end has been coming for some time. “He’s made his peace with it, I know,” said Franklin, 65. “He

plays better with fewer fingers than a lot of people play with all their fingers. He was learning how to substitute, (but) his hands hurt for a couple hours afterward. “It’s a very, very sad thing, because he is so good. It is just a loss for all of us in one way or another.” Daugherty said as singersongwriters, both he and Franklin can be sensitive about their work. But Price had an uncanny way of suggesting an idea for a different way to arrange one of their songs and they never felt like he was meddling. Rather, his suggestions often took their songs to places they never would have thought of, and that better served the song. “Percy and I are basically folk singers,” said Daugherty, who turned 61 on Sept. 21. “What Brian did is he took every song and just kind of tweaked it. “He’s really somewhat of a musical genius. You can watch the gears turning when we are in the middle of the song.” Price said he still plans to play for his grandchildren and for short stints socially, but Saturday marks the conclusion of his professional life as a musician after a lifetime of playing. By his own assessment, Price was a musician’s musician. His favorite thing was sitting in and trying to create sounds on the fly that fit with what others were playing. “That’s what I’m going to miss the most,” he said. “You kind of disappear. That is a very cool experience — almost like you are channeling the music.” Leaving behind music is not just quitting a hobby; for Price, it is a big part of his identity, and he admitted there is some pride and ego involved with letting go. But letting go is what he knows he must do. “I knew this was coming,” he said. “I want to kind of end on a high note, so to speak. “It’s been a lot of fun and I have a lot to be grateful for.”

Washington could be test case in pot legalization By Jonathan Martin The Seattle Times

SEATTLE — In the waning days of a campaign to legalize marijuana in California two years ago, all nine ex-directors of the Drug Enforcement Administration simultaneously urged Obama officials to come out in strong opposition. The pressure worked: Attorney General Eric Holder declared his office would “vigorously enforce” the federal ban on marijuana “even if such activities are permitted under state law.” Whether that was a real threat or just posturing is unclear: California voters rejected Proposition 19. The test case instead could be Washington, where voters on Nov. 6 will decide whether to directly confront the federal ban on marijuana and embrace a sprawling plan to legalize, regulate and tax sales at state-licensed pot stores. Speculation on the potential federal blowback is rife. Would the Obama administration pick a legal fight over states’ rights to try to block Initiative 502? Would federal prosecutors charge marijuana growers and retailers, even if they are authorized by state law? Or would — as some opponents and supporters predict — federal authorities denounce the law but largely leave Washington alone? The Justice Department won’t say. But legal and drug policy experts, asked recently to speculate, say any federal response is likely to be dictated as much by politics as by law. Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes, an I-502 supporter who talks frequently with federal authorities, thinks the Justice Department would back off after “a long, intense, fairly high-level conversation” with

campaign and state officials. “In the end, I think the feds will go with the will of the voters,” said Holmes. Since the legalization movement took hold in the 1970s, at least 11 states — most recently, Rhode Island in 2012 — and several large cities have stripped criminal penalties for possession of small amounts of marijuana, usually making it an infraction akin to a ticket. Full legalization has been proposed and rejected by voters in Alaska, California and Nevada, and is on the ballot this November in Colorado and Oregon. I-502 is the most comprehensive proposal yet. It legalizes 1 ounce of marijuana for people 21 and older, and creates a seed-to-store, closed, state-regulated monopoly estimated to raise more than $560 million in new taxes. Details would emerge in a yearlong process at the Liquor Control Board, but a state fiscal analysis estimates I-502 would result in as many state pot stores — 328 — as there were state liquor stores, with 363,000 customers consuming 85 metric tons of pot, all of which would have to be grown in Washington state. That would be a “whole new ballgame” demanding federal action, said Kevin Sabet, a former senior drug policy adviser in the Obama administration. He predicts the federal funding that requires a drug-free workplace could be endangered, as could federal highway and law enforcement grants. “These are the options that would be on the table,” said Sabet, an opponent of I-502. “The idea that a state can collect funds, collect taxes off an illegal activity — I can’t imagine that would be allowed.” Federal criminal prosecu-

tion of users, growers or sellers also would be an option. A 2005 U.S. Supreme Court case, Gonzales v. Raich, upheld the power of federal agents to arrest and prosecute medical marijuana patients, in part because that pot could cross state lines. An attorney in that case, Georgetown law professor Randy Barnett, said the legal arguments would be “even more forceful for recreational marijuana.” “Washington state is its own boss under criminal law, but

what they say doesn’t affect the federal government’s authority to enact the Controlled Substances Act,” Barnett said. It’s unclear, however, whether it would use that power. The DEA views all medical marijuana dispensaries as illegal but has selectively enforced federal law. Last month, the agency sent cease-and-desist letters to about 26 of the estimated 150 dispensaries in the Seattle area, citing their proximity to schools. Most dispensaries, however, stay in business.

in Washington

By Donna Gordon Blankinship The Associated Press

SEATTLE — The state Board of Education is making another attempt at encouraging Washington schools to replace their Native American mascots. In the past decade, about 10 schools have given up their Indian mascots. But another 50, including tribal schools, are holding fast to their nicknames as warriors, braves, redskins and red devils. The state board passed a resolution on Wednesday urging districts to stop using Native American mascots, but as board spokesman Aaron Wyatt acknowledges, it does not have the authority to mandate this change. There are no consequences for schools that do not voluntarily choose a new mascot, Wyatt said Friday. Oregon’s state Board of Education voted in May to ban Native American mascots, nicknames and logos. Schools in that state have five years to comply. Eight Oregon high schools are affected. Washington’s resolution, which is similar to resolution passed by the board in 1993, was inspired by research by the American Psychological Association citing the adverse effects of Native American mascots on students. The resolution also mentions the widening achievement gap between Native American and other students and the call by a number of national organizations and tribes for this change. “We are in the business of educating students,” Board member Bernal Baca said in a statement. “We need to remove any barrier that will impede student success.” Marcus Morgan, superintendent of the Reardan-Edwall School District near Spo-

kane, said the issued hadn’t been raised during his tenure with the school district but was open to the idea of discussing now. All of Reardan’s sports teams are the Indians and about a quarter of the district population are Native American or Alaskan Native students. “I think it’s maybe time to ask the questions,” Morgan said Friday. He said he would probably make some calls to tribal leaders as well as the school board and other community leaders to see if this is an issue the community wants to tackle. Reardan schools have a long tradition of Native American students, as well as having enthusiastic sports fans, Morgan said. He doesn’t think the Indian mascot has been seen as derogatory, but he added that the issue deserved more research. Other Washington communities have had acrimonious battles over retiring a Native American mascot, including some districts close to Reardan. The Colville Indians asked the Colville High School Indians to find a new name in 1997, but they’re still the Indians today. Ten schools have changed their names in the past decade, including Eatonville Middle School, which went from the Warriors to the Eagles; Eisenhower Middle School in Everett, which went from the Warriors to the Patriots and Issaquah High School, which changed from the Indians to the Eagles. About 10 tribal schools or those on Washington reservations also have Native American mascots, but the majority of schools in the state with Indian mascots are part of their community’s long-standing history.

SURGERY CARE QUESTION: Why a colonoscopy? ANSWER: Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States today. A colonoscopy is the primary preventative tool used by doctors to detect colon cancer, and is highly recommended because this is one cancer that Jana VanAmburg, screening not only detects but helps prevent M.D., FACS colon cancer. Colon cancer is a fast growing cancer and early detection inhibits this deadly cancer from becoming untreatable. A lighted camera called a colonoscope, is used to visually examine the patient’s colon and rectum. During a colonoscopy removal of cancerous and non-cancerous polyps, diagnosis of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, biopsies of tissue and repair of abnormalities such as gastrointestinal bleeding are also performed. If you are 50 or older contact your primary care physician and ask to be referred to our office. The message is clear: COLONOSCOPIES SAVE LIVES Dr. Jana M.

PLASTIC SURGERY QUESTION: I am a 42 year old woman who has tried to take care of myself. I am interested in facial rejuvenation; however, I don’t feel that I am ready for a face lift at this point in my life. Is there something else I can do to make myself look and feel a bit younger? Adam Angeles, A NSWER: Depending on your aesthetic M.D. priorities and exactly what facial features you have, a number of minimally invasive products and procedures are available to help achieve your goals. For example, Botox® and/or injectable soft tissue fillers (there are many) or even your fat from other areas of your body can be utilized to help smooth out tiny lines, shape facial contours or sculpt lips to perfection. At Bend Plastic Surgery we specialize in all aspects of minimally invasive facial procedures such as fat transfers.

I’ve heard people talk about getting ‘prolotherapy injections’. What are they talking about? Will it help my knee pain?

on the DOT laser for skin tightening. The results look amazing, and I wanted more information on this treatment.

Dr. Elizabeth McElligott

ANSWER: The DOT laser is a CO2 laser for skin rejuvenation. This laser is considered the most effective weapon for combating wrinkles, aging , sun damage, scars, and many other skin imperfections. Past generation CO2 lasers were surgical, and required anesthesia, and significant recovery time. DOT lasers emit the laser light beam in a somewhat diffused method, in a “dot” pattern. This method does not completely ablate the epidermis, which reduces the risk factors and complications of traditional CO2 laser treatments.

DOT laser technology provides amazing results without the risks involved with surgery, and drastically reduces recovery time. Laser Skin Resurfacing is the perfect treatment for removing the undesirable signs of age. The DOT laser is one of the most successful techniques for treating every type of wrinkle. This technology now makes it possible to perform any treatment on the face and neck in total safety. You can now reduce the furrows of wrinkles and eliminate the shallower ones. With this stimulation, the dermas can produce new cells and new collagen, giving your skin a smoother, younger appearance. Your smile, your eyes and your expression will acquire a natural new glow. At The Enhancement Center Medical Spa, we are now offering DOT laser Skin Rejuvenation treatments in October at special discounts! Give us a call today for more information.

ANSWER: Prolotherapy, including PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and dextrose prolotherapy, is permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolotherapy has been used for over 50 years and has an excellent record of success for curing chronic pain. Prolotherapy targets the functionally insufficient or degenerated connective tissue by the precise injection of a mild irritant solution directly on the ligament or tendon creating a controlled inflammation that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms to create new strengthened tissue. The previously injured tissue goes through the same healing cascade as when it was first injured and is given a second chance to heal. Payson Flattery, D.C. ND

It may take several injections spaced at 3-6 week intervals to achieve a maximum result. Prolotherapy uses the body’s natural healing ability to relieve chronic pain, strengthen injured tissues, and restore function. It can treat anything from spinal pain to osteoarthritis and tennis elbow. The treatment is over 85% effective in most cases and is practiced at Harvard, Stanford, John Hopkins and Mayo clinics. Dr. Flattery has been using injection therapy in his practice for 10 years, and teaches Prolotherapy and orthopedic assessment to other practitioners. Call for a free phone consult to see if Prolotherapy is right for you.

QUESTION: I have heard about conservative dentistry but don’t really understand what that means. Can you explain? ANSWER: A lot of people get confused by this term. Some think that having conservative dentistry means that treatment is only initiated when it is absolutely unavoidable. Initially this approach appears more conservative but in reality it is more destructive over time. Kelley Mingus, Conservative dentistry is actually about preserving your D.M.D. natural tooth structure. Lets face it, nothing that replaces your natural tooth structure works as well. Strong, healthy, natural tooth structure creates a healthier environment to prevent gum disease, it resists bacterial invasion better, and protects against decay better. People are living much longer today than we did just a few short years ago. The focus on conserving your natural teeth and maintaining a healthy environment is more important today than ever. A proactive conservative approach to dentistry results in far fewer crowns (caps), which results in less root canals, which results in far less extractions, etc. I think you get my point. The incidence of Gum disease is also reduced through conservative dentistry. The traditional model of fix it when it breaks lends to an increase in dental treatment over a lifetime. We now know through science and research that conservative dentistry that focuses on prevention lends to an overall decrease in dentistry and an increase in overall health.

QUESTION: I have been to several doctors and no one seems to be able to find the problem. I am constantly fatigued, gaining weight and frequent headaches. Help me I’ve tried everything!

QUESTION: My physical therapist presses on my neck joints and I have exercises to keep my neck moving. Why is this important?

ANSWER: Fatigue is the most common presenting symptom in medicine today. There can be many causes including thyroid hypo function, adrenal Kerie Raymond, dysfunction, Candidiasis, and toxicity. Toxicity is a N.D. major problem, and an accumulation of toxins can come from pollutants, drugs, alcohol, smoking, food additives, but also from normal metabolism and intestinal build up of unhealthy bacteria within your own body. Our bodies remove toxins naturally through 3 steps, 2 steps via the liver, and 3rd, excretion via the kidneys and intestines. This process can be assisted with a liver and intestinal cleanse. Think of it like changing the oil and fuel filter in your car. Call our office today to schedule a consult to find the right detox for you. Our next detox/cleanse class starts Tuesday, October 2nd at 5:30 pm. See our website for more details.

Secondly, joints get nutrition and waste removal from the fluid in the joints. If your joints are stiff, they will be moving less efficiently than normal. As a result your painful inflamed joints need more nutrition and waste removal. The cartilage acts like a sponge. Moving them allows the fluid to be “squished” out and fresh fluid aborbed. If you are stiff, your therapist may help you do by gently “pushing” on the joints. At Healing Bridge Physical Therapy, our hour long individual treatment sessions allow our qualified therapists to educate our clients about their choices and teach exercises to help maintain and progress your inclinic accomplishments.

Paris passed away at her Bend home September 21, 2012, with her husband holding her hand and in the presence of her two sons. After several months of treatment, cancer finally claimed her life. Paris was born in Portland to Howard and Paris Slyter and raised in Pleasant Valley where she Paris Steen enjoyed riding her horse throughout the (then) wide open countryside. Paris was employed by Centennial Mills for 33 years and worked an additional 2 years with Wilbur-Ellis. Paris and her husband Roger met in the 6th grade and went on to become high school sweethearts. Always working together, the couple lived an active and fulfilling life until Paris’ death just one month before their 50th Wedding Anniversary. As husband and wife, Roger and Paris were “best friends� as well as spouses. At the time their two sons were progressing to college, Paris and Roger adopted a little girl. Tiffany joined the family in 1986 and was the mirror image of Paris. Mother and daughter shared their love for showing horses. In 2002, Paris and Roger realized their dream of retiring to Bend where Paris made quilts and friends. Paris joined a bowling league and, with Roger towing the trailer, traveled to many horse shows with her paint horse “Bear.� For Paris, the joy of competition was equaled by the many friendships made at the arenas. In addition to her local hobbies, Paris enjoyed traveling through Europe with her sister, Alice and the family daughters, and later with Roger. Paris and Roger also spent three summers in Alaska sightseeing and reuniting with family. In 2008 the couple so enjoyed their vacation to New Zealand that they had planned a return trip in the near future. Although she stayed busy in retirement, Paris would frequently return to Portland to visit her sons and grandchildren. “Grandma Paris� was a gifted cook and delighted in making Swedish Pancakes for her granddaughters. Paris is survived by her husband, Roger; her sons, Jason (Heidi), and Justin; daughter, Tiffany; her brother, Howard and his wife, Marge; her motherin-law, Laura Steen; sister-in-law, Linda Ott; granddaughters, Tennison and Ava Paris; and many nieces and nephews; and of course, her horse ‘Bear’. She was preceded in death by her father, Howard; mother, Paris; father-inlaw, Orlan Steen; and sisters, Colleen and Alice. Paris’ family and her many dear friends mourn her loss. A memorial service will be held Thursday, October 4, at 11:00 a.m., at The Nativity Lutheran Church in Bend, Oregon. Remembrances in Paris’ honor may be made to Partners In Care Hospice, Bend, OR or Equine Outreach Inc., Bend OR.

California to vote on labeling genetically modified foods By Laurel Rosenhall The Sacramento Bee

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The cereal aisle, the cookie shelf and the cold case full of sodas have become the battlegrounds in one of the most expensive political fights on California’s November ballot. Under Proposition 37, food containing genetically engineered ingredients would have to be labeled as such, including thousands of packaged products that now fill grocery stores and routinely make their way into Californians’ kitchens. Those on both sides of the measure agree: Almost anything that’s not organic and comes in a box, a bag or a can probably has some genetically engineered content. The prevalence of such ingredients, also known as genetically modified organisms — or GMOs — is the reason advocates are calling for labels. Common ingredients in processed food — including corn syrup, sugar, canola oil and soy-based emulsifiers — now often come from crops that have been genetically engineered. Those ingredients are in cereals, sodas, cookies, crackers, salad dressings and many other packaged foods. Certified organic goods, on the other hand, do not contain crops whose genes have been altered in a lab. So it’s not surprising that Proposition 37 is shaping up as a battle between organic farmers and food manufacturers on one side and, on the other, conventional grocery store brands and the biotech companies that make some of their ingredients. The parent companies for Cheerios, Chef Boyardee, Nestlé, Coke and Pepsi are pouring millions into defeating the measure. With them are companies such as Monsanto, DuPont and Bayer that make pesticides and genetically modified seeds. Thanks largely to those businesses, the “no” side has raised $32.5 million. Pushing for Proposition 37 are organic farmers, advocates and food manufacturers such as Lundberg’s, Nature’s Path, Clif Bar and Amy’s Kitchen. They have helped the “yes” side raise $4.3 million. Proponents contend that genetically engineered food is unhealthy and say the labeling requirement is necessary so people know what they’re

eating. Opponents say genetically engineered food is safe, and that the labeling scheme described in Proposition 37 would confuse shoppers and raise the price of groceries by nearly $400 a year for the average household. “I may not be typical, but I’m willing to pay more for food that I think is healthier for me,” said Tara Crowley, a retired university administrator who was shopping recently at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op, where she picked up a $3.19 package of organic whole wheat pasta to go with the fresh basil in her basket.

Ridley picked a box of four frozen bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches because it was on sale for $5.99. Corn syrup, which usually comes from genetically modified corn, was listed as an ingredient. Ridley said she didn’t like the idea of eating biotech food. Would she buy the same product if it carried the label required under Proposition 37, “Partially produced with ge-

netic engineering”? “If it was on sale, I might buy it anyway,” she said. “Because I just don’t have that much.” At the heart of the fight over Proposition 37 is a technology that has exploded in the last two decades, in which scientists change the DNA of a crop to give it different characteristics. Common genetically engineered crops include corn infused with pesticide to make it resistant to bugs, and soybeans bred to tolerate herbicides such as Roundup. Crops can be engineered to withstand drought, delay rotting or add vitamins. Such biotechnology is now so commonplace in the United States that about 90 percent of the nation’s corn and soybeans are genetically engineered, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture — a huge increase from just a decade ago. It’s a concern to proponents of organic farming but good news for producers who can grow greater quantities at lower cost. The World Health Organization says genetically engineered food currently on the market is safe, and the American Medical Association says there is no reason to specially label it. Hundreds of health studies vouch for the technology. That leads Colin Carter, a University of California, Davis, agricultural economist who conducted an independent

analysis of the proposition, to view the debate as more about the business of food than its safety. He predicts more people would buy organic goods if comparable nonorganic items carried labels saying they’ve been genetically engineered. “This does not present a health risk,” Carter said. “It’s about money.” Proposition 37 backers say they just want to give consumers choice. If genetically engineered food is safe, they argue, then why is there such opposition to labeling it? They are skeptical of the technology, citing studies that link genetically engineered foods with allergies, and a National Academy of Sciences report that says such foods could introduce “unintended compositional changes that may have adverse effects on human health.” The long-term effect of eating genetically engineered food is unknown, said Grant Lundberg, an organic rice farmer in Butte County who supports Proposition 37. He said it’s not about creating new customers. “I don’t see that we’re going to end up with a big chunk of new business from this,” Lundberg said. “This is about transparency, the consumers wanting to know. And the market will bring to market the things consumers want.”

Politics, class issues complicate Colorado land dispute By Jack Healy New York Times News Service

PAONIA, Colo. — This is a story of a quiet billionaire and a middle-class mountain town, of class divisions, small-town quarrels and competing visions of the future of the West. But at its core, it is really all about land. Specifically, it is about a mostly forgotten belt of public land that cuts straight through a ranch owned by the industrialist Bill Koch, whose brothers Charles and David are top Republican contributors. A century ago, sheepherders used the corridor to move their flocks without crossing private property. For decades after, it was mostly forgotten by everyone but a few hunters and hikers. But recently, Koch has made it perhaps the most contested ground for miles around, setting off a debate about private property and public access, privilege and tradition. Three years back, Koch offered a deal to the government that would let him acquire the federally owned corridor that splits his property. In return, he would donate two smaller but more valuable and often visited private parcels to the National Park Service: one in the Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, the other near a dazzling reservoir about 70 miles from here. Locally, the reaction to Koch’s land swap, and to the man himself, has been complicated. To the staunchest opponents,

it was simple: A powerful outof-town landowner wanted to close public lands in their backyard so he could have the run of his. But Koch is also one of the biggest employers around Paonia. His coal mine in Somerset employs 348 people, and his gas company has 20 workers. Koch’s plans for his ranch have also fueled intrigue. For the last three years, he has been

painstakingly piecing together his own Old West town from relocated historic buildings and new construction made to look old. One day, Koch plans to fill the buildings with his growing collection of Western memorabilia. He has said he wants it to remain a private refuge for his family, historians and school tours, not open to the general public. Still, from a rutted county

road on (for now) public land, it is a marvel to see this tiny town rise from scratch. It is a view, of course, that curious onlookers would lose if the land exchange went through. Some critics suspect that is the point. “It’s all about privacy,” said Jim Sims, who owns a nearby ranch and opposes the deal. “All it does is kick the public off of some prime ground that they should have access to.”

LITTLEROCK, Wash. — The birdman of Alcatraz became famous. But the frogmen of Cedar Creek are still anonymous beyond the tiny cult world of amphibian science. For now, they say. Mat Henson, 25, serving a 4 1⁄2-year sentence for robbery and assault, and his research partner, Taylor Davis, 29, who landed in the Cedar Creek Corrections Center here in central Washington for stealing cars, raised about 250 Oregon spotted frogs in the prison yard this summer. Working with biologists, Henson is helping write a scientific curriculum for other frog-raisers, in prison or out. A previous inmate in the program, released some years ago, is finishing his Ph.D. in molecular biology. When asked about his plans after he is released from prison in 2014, Henson paused only a moment. “Bioengineering,” he said. The state program that connected the dots — or rather the felons and the frogs — is called Sustainability in Prisons. Nationally, it is unique in enlisting inmates to help rescue imperiled species like the Oregon spotted frog, which is threatened across much of its range. Who really gets saved, though, is an open question. “A prison, when you stop to think about it, is a place that should be able to contribute beyond just locking people up,” said Dan Pacholke, the Washington state director of prisons, who helped found the project in 2004 when he was superintendent at Cedar Creek, a minimum-security 500-bed prison. He still jointly directs the project from his of-

fice in the capital, Olympia. The program’s broader goal of bringing nature and sustainable practices to prisons is echoed across the nation as states seek ways to run prisons more cost-effectively. Utilitarian practicality led Wisconsin in 2008 to begin having inmates grow much of their own food. And federal energy rules are pushing the goal of zero-net energy use in federal prisons by 2030. Indiana and Massachusetts have become aggressive in reducing energy and water consumption and waste in their prisons, and tough renewable energy mandates in California are pushing alternative generation and conservation at prisons there, said Paul Sheldon, a senior adviser at Natural Capitalism Solutions, a Colorado-based nonprofit that works with government agencies and companies on sustainability issues. But Washington state’s overlay of science — offenders in four state prisons work on projects involving the spotted frogs (Rana pretiosa) wild prairie grasses and butterflies — is also addressing a budget gap in habitat restoration and ecology. The prisoners, who trained with a state biologist but also learned from one another, must compete to enter the program and maintain a record of perfect behavior to stay in it. They are paid 42 cents an hour, standard prison wages, for 10-hour workdays that involve sometimes tedious tasks like monitoring the frogs’ water temperature or harvesting the hundreds of crickets grown for frog food — something that even an oppressed graduate student might avoid at real wages.

MUNICH — he rain falling here Sept. 22 might have compounded people’s desire to squeeze into elaborate tents away from the downtown hubbub. But it’s more likely that the search for a particular beverage was the culprit. This, after all, was the beginning of Oktoberfest, which organizers describe as the world’s largest folk festival. The event celebrates German beer, food, music and other customs. And while Bend has its share of local craft breweries, roundabouts and other cultural attractions, they lack the name recognition and immensity of Oktoberfest, which drew nearly 7 million people last year. At the Löwenbräu beer tent, one of 14 huge structures set up on festival grounds, locals — women in low-cut white shirts and colorful dresses called dirndls, men in plaid with

Oktoberfest rolled-up suede pants and suspenders — sat and talked on benches set up at long tables. Tourists crammed into the crowded aisles and held up cellphones in camera mode to capture a sense of the scene. No one appeared concerned about filling the big room beyond legal capacity. There were altogether perhaps 6,000 people in that tent alone. At all 14 tents, there are 104,000 seats. Musicians on an elevated stage in the middle of the tent played a few bars communicating achievement — ta-da! Then, from the perimeter of the tent, came indecipherable shrill calls. The crowd pushed forward. There were more calls. Then it became clear what was going on. Beer was coming. “Vorsicht!” — watch out! — screamed a waitress, as she made her way to the middle of the room, with 10 one-liter steins full of beer in her hands. “Vorsicht! Vorsicht!”

Northwest India pale ales I’ve grown accustomed to. But what a delight those first gulps were. I had no lederhosen like the Bavarian men, but at least I had managed to get some beer at Oktoberfest.

Beer fest

Visitors wait to enter the Paulaner tent at Oktoberfest in Munich on Sept. 24, a Monday.

As the band played, waitresses slammed beer onto the benches for the people with seats. Others looked on and wondered how they, too, could get some beer. Should they wait for a vacant bench? Or should they ask people already sitting to

order on their behalf? It took me an hour to explore the place and go for the second option. Two sweet older women from the Munich suburbs persuaded a woman at a bench next to them to order a liter, or Mass, of beer on my behalf.

Just one kind was available. It cost 9.50 euros, roughly equal to $12.25. (A liter measures out to a bit more than two pints.) The cold, light-yellow beer went down quickly, leaving a slightly sweet aftertaste. It was far from the hoppy

Unlike festivals for beer in Bend and other parts of Oregon, which go back no further than about 25 years, Oktoberfest is a veritable tradition, established because of a royal wedding in 1810 and held this year for the 179th time. (According to the Munich tourism office, cholera epidemics and other concerns have prompted organizers to cancel Oktoberfest 24 times.) The festival lasts for more than two weeks. And even though Munich residents comprise 60 percent of event attendees, it’s a major tourist draw and an economic powerhouse for Munich. The city puts on the event; the person in charge is the head of the city council. See Oktoberfest / D4


It’s time for pumpkin picking By Megan Kehoe The Bulletin

They started creeping into the bins of grocery stores a few weeks ago. Rotund orange ones. Scaly green ones. Ghostly white ones. Short, plump antiqueyellow ones. The month of October is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing: pumpkins. For Central Oregonians who want to go farther than the local grocery store bin, there are plenty of options. This year, two of Central Oregon’s largest pumpkin patches will once again reopen their fields to visitors, offering pumpkins in just about every color and variety. But pumpkins are only the beginning of the fall festivities at the pumpkin patches. The Smith Rock Ranch, formerly known as the Central

represent more than just the business’s fall season. This year, the ranch will once again have its famed corn maze for visitors to navigate their way through. See Pumpkins / D7

Ross was found along with one of his siblings, Chandler, in an abandoned home and is now looking to find his forever committed family. He is about 3 months old and would benefit from plenty of play time as well as lots of love and cat naps. Ross has most likely never been around dogs, and has been around both his kitten siblings and his mom. Is Ross the cat for you? If so, please come down to the shelter and adopt this great guy today!

A  & A  

‘Laziness’ in stepdaughters needs to be addressed Dear Abby: A year ago I remarried and gained three great stepkids. I’m worried about the oldest, who is a senior (18). She doesn’t care about school anymore. She’s smart enough. When she tries, she gets A’s. But when she doesn’t want to do the work, she gets F’s. There is no in-between. She’s capable, but lazy. Her youngest sister (12) is doing the same thing now, too. Neither one is using drugs or alcohol or skipping school. They are fundamentally good kids. I recognize that it’s laziness because I did the same thing 30 years ago. What turned me around was the U.S. Navy. I literally grew up on an aircraft carrier. Abby, until now I had only sons. I understand boys and men. Having daughters now is a very steep learning curve. I need suggestions on how to help their mom parent them through this rough period. I love our children deeply and want to be the kind of stepdad God wants me to be for them. — Clueless Stepdad Dear Clueless: For a man who signed himself clueless, you have clear insight. You and your wife should schedule an appointment with the oldest girl’s school counselor and find out to what degree her grade point average has been affected by her “laziness.� Then ask your stepdaughter what she plans to do after high school. Does she plan to go straight into a minimum-wage job — if she can find one — with little chance of advancement? Trade school? College? If she wants to further her education, she needs to understand that schools pay attention to applicants’ high school records. At 18, she should be treated like the young adult she is, and you and her mother deserve some answers. The 12-year-old is another story. Find out from her teachers whether she has fallen behind in any of her classes and see that she gets tutoring if she

DEAR ABBY needs to catch up. Make sure she completes her homework assignments. You and her mother should impress upon her that you expect the best she’s capable of, and for good grades there will be rewards just as for poor grades there will be consequences, such as reduced privileges. Then practice what you preach. Dear Abby: My husband and I are retired. He has a small farm, which isn’t profitable, so he calls it his “hobby� farm. When we retired, we agreed to have our main meal at noon every day. I work hard to have a nutritious meal on the table promptly at noon. My husband knows this, but he comes in from working whenever he’s ready — sometimes hours late. He always has an excuse. He has a cellphone and could call to let me know he’s going to be late, but he rarely does. When he finally gets in, the food is cold and I am upset. He thinks I’m “unreasonable� to expect him to be on time or call. He has never cooked a meal in his life, so he has no idea what is involved. I’m fed up with his behavior and need some suggestions on how to handle this. — Boiling Mad in Alabama Dear Boiling Mad: Perhaps agreeing to have your main meal together at noon was unrealistic. Talk calmly to your husband and ask if it would be more practical to schedule it for 1 or 2 p.m. That he wouldn’t call to let you know he’s running late does seem inconsiderate, and if the problem persists, it might be better for both of you if his “main meal� consists of a sandwich he makes for himself whenever he finally returns home. — Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

Horoscope: Happy Birthday for Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012 By Jacqueline Bigar This year you feel far more fortunate than in the past. You also tend to rely more on your intellect. As a result, you always seem to come up with different solutions and new ideas. Add a little more optimism to your life. If you are single, you could meet someone who can challenge you, which you’ll find to be a rather attractive quality. Go after that person, as this bond could be powerful. If you are attached, the two of you need to share more time together. Plan on a special, long-discussed trip together. ARIES admires your style. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Your ability to move through issues marks your plans. You could greet a visitor with a great deal of celebration. You might feel like you have not seen this person in a while. Zero in on what you want, and you will easily manifest just that. Tonight: Bring friends together. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Step back and take a look at what you want to happen. You might need to make a major purchase. You could decide not to worry and just go for it. One day of sharing and spending a little too much won’t hurt; however, be careful not to make it a habit. Tonight: Vanish. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Your desire to celebrate emerges. You might not even need an occasion, or you might create one. It really does not matter either way. Clearly, you feel like the good times have arrived. Be spontaneous, and everything will fall into place. Tonight: Let the good times rock and roll. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HH You might want to let go of a situation and open up to a new beginning. Talk to a dear friend and get to the bottom of the issue. It is not the time to make your move just yet but having someone to talk to makes all the difference. Tonight: Touch base with an older friend or relative. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Make phone calls to those at a distance early on. You will receive a slew of news — some of which could be very exciting. You have a lot of energy, so invite family members to join you for one of your adventures.

Check out the fall foliage along the way. Tonight: Try a new spot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Work with a loved one as a team. You might want to reach out to an older friend who does not have the get-up-and-go to visit. This person will let you know how much he or she appreciates your attention and caring. Tonight: Go for togetherness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You are a sign that likes peace, but you also like to hear the other party’s perspective. You will hear a lot about other ideas and styles, many of which are quite different from your own. Honor and respect the differences in opinion. Tonight: Have dinner with friends and family. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Your pace is easy and relaxed. Remember, even though you can think of much that needs to be done, most of it does not have to be done this very second. Kick back with a friend or loved one, and enjoy this day of rest. You will feel better soon enough. Tonight: Where friends are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Continue to indulge a child or loved one. This renews your energy, too, and helps you let go of what might not be perfect in your life. Go off and invite a key person to join you to the zoo or another favorite spot. Tonight: Avoid thinking about tomorrow. Stay in the present. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Stay anchored and close to home. You will want to make calls or invite some loved ones over for a fun, spontaneous get-together. Your efforts to maintain a connection and unity among others will be most appreciated. Tonight: Make it easy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You could feel overworked and at the end of your rope when dealing with a loved one. Stop. Recapture your fun, childlike and zany nature. Once you do, everything will fall into place. Clearly your authentic self is well-loved. Tonight: Say “yes� to an invitation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You might opt to spend some money on an important individual in your life. For some, you could make an investment that feels sound, which could involve real estate. Optimism infuses your life with more security. Tonight: Close to home. Š 2012 by King Features Syndicate

A soft-pedaled escape from the bustle of Paris By Christopher Hall New York Times News Service

It was easy to imagine that we’d pedaled our bicycles deep into a Pissarro painting, one of his sun-dappled, late-19th-century Impressionistic scenes of riotous summer vegetation outside Paris. Rows of soldierstraight poplars lined the narrow Canal de l’Ourcq, their leaves rustling in a breeze that tempered the warm August air. The surrounding woods smelled heavy and green, and the canal’s still, dark waters reflected the slender poles of a few fishermen on its grassy banks. Through gaps in the dense woods I caught flashes of golden wheat fields ready for harvest. Modern intrusions into this tableau were few: Mac, my partner, and I, zipping along a canal-side path on the bikes we’d rented in Paris, nearly 15 miles behind us, and the Yankees cap shading the face of a napping angler. The Canal de l’Ourcq may have begun as a Napoleonicera project to transport freight and to supply Paris with drinking water, but in recent years it has become a favored route for Parisian cyclists looking to escape the city. A paved, wellmarked cycling path follows the canal for about 17 miles as it angles northeast out of the city, through the departments of Seine-St.-Denis and Seineet-Marne, to the handsome town of Claye-Souilly. The path marks a steady and fascinating progression from urban to pastoral, at first skirting Metro lines, train yards and old, disused factories now splashed with fantastic graffiti art before traversing tidy suburban parks and, finally, a sylvan landscape that can feel little changed from a century ago. Along the way, there are fine picnic spots, and, this being France, a cafe or two for a pick-me-up coffee. During a monthlong stay in Paris this summer, Mac and I

Bikers follow a route along the Canal de l’Ourcq near Paris. When on vacation, tourists may find it easier to discover a city by cycling.

decided to take the long ride even though we’re mere “vacation cyclists,” guys who don’t own bikes, tend to ride them only on vacation , and wouldn’t be caught dead in spandex. To get an idea of the route, I checked the French-language tourism site of the Seine-St.Denis Department. What became immediately clear was that we’d need decent bikes for the trip — nothing hard-core like skinny-tire racing bikes or knobby-tire off-road cycles with dozens of gears, but basic, multispeed road bikes. Instead of the sturdy, threespeed bikes of Paris’ municipal Velib’ program, which would be too clunky and expensive (39 euros apiece for a six-hour rental, or about $50 at $1.28 to the euro), we found a handful of outfits offering everything from kiddie-sized cycles to tandems to serious all-terrain models.

I chose Paris a Velo C’est Sympa because it was within walking distance of our apartment in the Marais and near the flat bike lane along Boulevard Richard-Lenoir, which would shoot us directly toward the start of the Canal de l’Ourcq path. And the price was right: 15 euros for a daylong rental of a well-maintained six-speed cruiser. We headed off on a Friday around 10 a.m., encountering a kaleidoscope of Parisian morning scenes — fruit sellers hawking melons at a crowded outdoor market; a prancing, shaggy-coated spaniel out for his constitutional; a woman scrubbing her front steps; other cyclists running errands or heading to work. Following Richard-Lenoir we reached the quays of the Canal St.-Martin, where we pedaled gently uphill alongside traffic until we reached

the alternately paved and cobblestone pedestrian promenade along the Bassin de la Villette, the large rectangle of water just beyond which Paris ends and the Canal de l’Ourcq begins. With the basin and the shining, futuristic sphere of the Cite des Sciences to our left, we entered a short tunnel under the Boulevard Peripherique to exit Paris. We emerged from the tunnel into a world startlingly different from the manicured cityscape behind us. Towering plumes of steam — and the smell of fresh linens — poured from the vents of a massive 19th-century laundry facility, while farther on, a barge was offloading gravel at a cement plant. In the densely populated, immigrant-heavy communes of Pantin and Bobigny, just outside Paris, we passed a rail yard of sleek, high-speed TGV trains and for several

hundred yards rode alongside tracks where Paris Metro trains clattered by. Graffiti covered fences, overpasses and the walls of old factories — not just tags but poems, political diatribes and entire spray-painted works of art of buxom warrior princesses, a headless Buddha, skulking secret agents. Though the level, paved path can be crowded on weekends, we saw few people on our Friday ride — other cyclists, a handful of in-line skaters, an occasional jogger. On one bench, shaded by a crab-apple tree, a trio of Roma musicians sat with a pink guitar. Eventually, grassy parkland began to bracket the canal, bordered by town houses with well-tended gardens. By 11:45 a.m., when we reached the town of Les Pavillons-sousBois after an easy ride with many stops, we were solidly

Oktoberfest Continued from D1 Is Oktoberfest important for business in the German state of Bavaria? I asked one of the women who helped me get a beer. “Sehr wichtig,” she said — very important. Indeed, last year, 6.9 million people came and bought 7.9 million liters of beer. That’s at least 70 million euros in beer revenue. The Bend Brew Fest, by comparison, is held over three days and has never drawn more than 25,000 people, even if there are more beer varieties available than at Oktoberfest. The scale of Oktoberfest is immense. The event takes up 26 acres this time around, not the usual 42, because it shares space with an agricultural convention. Horses, food stands, souvenir shops, themepark rides and a big crowd take up the space around the beer tents. It can be a lot to take in at once. The sight of the spinning-teacup ride a short walk from beer tents is enough to bring on nausea.

in the leafy suburbs of Paris. At the heavily wooded Parc Forestier de la Poudrerie (also known as Parc Forestier de Sevran), we picnicked on a secluded bench overlooking a glade filled with cruising dragonflies, and just beyond that, after a ride that included a few short but steep slopes, we stopped for postlunch coffee in the town of Villeparisis. After that, the path followed the canal deeper into the countryside. We saw no more houses and almost no other people, and for the next 20 minutes, time seemed to have skipped a century as we rolled through a tunnel of green formed by overarching trees. We continued on a hard-packed, decomposed stone canal-side path to the center of Claye-Souilly where, by 2:15 p.m., we were sitting in a flower — filled park, next to the 19th-century city hall and within earshot of a splashing fountain, eating financiers aux fruits rouges from a pastry shop while contemplating our return to Paris. The thought of a long ride back was not attractive, but we had another option: We made the easy ride back to Villeparisis, bought tickets (4.65 euros each) at its RER station, and boarded a train for Paris with our bikes. Thirty minutes later, we were coasting downhill from the Gare du Nord to the rental shop, where we turned in the bikes before stepping into a bar to celebrate our big ride with ice-cold beers. “Did you rent bikes today?” the bartender asked, nodding toward the shop, and we told him we’d made it all the way to Claye-Souilly. He stuck out his lower lip and nodded a few times. “Pas mal,” he said, not bad. High praise, indeed, from a Parisian barman.

Going in a group At least for me, Oktoberfest seems to be more enjoyable in a group than as a solo activity. Finding a bench for your two- or four-person party is not as intimidating as giving strangers money to buy you beer. And it’s less stressful if you’re not the only one at your bench in anything other than traditional Oktoberfest attire. During the first weekend, at least half of the people at two of the large tents were wearing lederhosen or dirndls. On Sunday, I went with three fellow Americans from the hotel where I was staying. Once we’d secured a bench inside the Augustiner brewery’s tent, we made fast friends with delegations from Serbia and Mexico. Sure, foreigners were plentiful at Oktoberfest — the largest group comes from Italy — but with German being spoken in just about every direction, it’s hard to see the event as a tourist trap. The musicians played many songs with German lyrics, although there was a notable exception: John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” The

song “Ein Prosit,” or “A Toast,” typifies the selections, with a big rhythm that demands toasting at every chorus. Our group stayed at the Augustiner tent for six or more hours. Often we were standing on the bench. Despite being surrounded by around 6,000 strangers, it was easy to feel comfortable. After hearing “Ein Prosit” about 10 times, I could follow along whenever the band decided to play it again.

Packed on a weekday Monday was a regular workday in Munich. But at the Oktoberfest grounds, known as Theresienwiese, or Wiesn (pronounced VEE-sin) for short, almost all the tents were packed. The crowd was filled with more children and parents than it was over the weekend. And fewer people were wearing dirndls or lederhosen, which was a relief. Because it was a weekday, I’d expected the tents to have

empty benches for guests to sit without having to wait around. But that was the case at just one tent I visited. A few hours later, while wandering around a neighborhood not far from the Munich city center, I passed a lederhosen-clad man carrying on a conversation on a cellphone. The sight reminded me of how, although some aspects of Oktoberfest change, the essence still carries on, more than 200 years after it began. The clothing, the beer and the six main Munich breweries take on a sense of timelessness. The act of descending on and celebrating in one place together, year after year, is a tradition. And people the world over have taken note. I wonder if Bend could ever have some tradition spanning centuries. For one thing, the city wouldn’t need to look far for beer. — Reporter: 541-633-2117,

Going off the map in the Armenian black garden By Russ Juskalian

Travel considerations

New York Times News Service

Standing on a limestone ridge in the foothills of the Lesser Caucasus Mountains, I surveyed the landscape that lay before me. To the west, illuminated by a late-day sun and with ever more craggy peaks as a backdrop, was Vankasar Mountain, capped by a solitary, ancient church. To the east, yellow grassland and scrub stretched to the horizon. And then there was the ghost city of Agdam, its thousands of ruined buildings representing the last exchanges of a late 20th-century conflict that many people have never heard of. I had come to the breakaway Southern Caucasus region of Nagorno-Karabakh expecting a land of extremes. NagornoKarabakh, an ethnically Armenian enclave whose name means “mountainous black garden,” appears on few maps. Its tumultuous recent history would affect any traveler, no doubt, but for me, the experience of visiting this place had a personal dimension. My grandmother had fled Anatolia as a girl, escaping an Armenian genocide at the hands of the crumbling Ottoman Empire. To come to NagornoKarabakh, a place where Armenians have asserted their right to live freely — but at the cost of having forcibly removed their Azeri neighbors — generated mixed emotions, to say the least. Once part of an ancient Armenian kingdom, Nagorno-Karabakh was made a special autonomous oblast, or administrative zone, under the authority of the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic, by Stalin in the 1920s. This designation temporarily calmed fighting between the predominately Muslim Azeris and mostly Christian Armenians who lived in the region. But as the Soviet Union disintegrated in the late 1980s, old ethnic feuds turned bloody, and both ethnicities were subjected to pogroms and persecution at the hands of the other. Armenians, representing around 75 percent of the Nagorno-Karabakh population at the time, sought independence from Azerbaijan. Skirmishes led to full-on war by the early 1990s, resulting in upward of 30,000 casualties and hundreds of thousands of displaced people on both sides. In 1994, the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh effectively won that war and claimed independence with the signing of a cease-fire order. In the process, nearly the entire Azeri population was forced to flee. Today, the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) is not recognized by any other country in the world. With no official borders, Armenian and Azeri soldiers are still dug into trenches on the front lines.

No luxuries here Though I had become interested in the region because of my ethnic heritage, once I started digging into the history of Nagorno-Karabakh, I wanted to experience what was said to be a breathtaking landscape filled with ancient monasteries, mountainous tableaus and hard-working people trying to rebuild. So last spring I went there, accompanied by my girlfriend. I didn’t expect luxury hotels, haute cuisine or air-condi-

Visiting Nagorno-Karabakh is not for the faint of heart. Every year soldiers on both sides of the line of contact are killed by sniper fire. Outside Stepanakert, accommodation is mainly limited to homestays. Visas can be arranged in advance in Yerevan, Armenia, or upon arrival in Stepanakert at the foreign ministry. If you plan to visit Azerbaijan in the future, ask for the visa to be put on a separate piece of paper that can be removed from your passport. Azerbaijan will not allow entry to anyone with a NagornoKarabakh Republic visa in their passport.

The Ghazanchetsots Cathedral is in the town of Shoushi, in the breakaway region of NagornoKarabakh. The 19thcentury cathedral is one of many buildings in NagornoKarabakh damaged during fighting in the early 1990s.

tioned buses, and I didn’t find them. Instead, we stayed at local homes where running water might not be guaranteed, ate simple meals with our hosts and traveled in Sovietera knockoffs of Fiats and antiquated minibuses with bald tires. In exchange for the lack of amenities, I was hoping not just to understand more about this little-known area, but also to understand more about my own background. Early on a humid May morning, we headed to a dusty square in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, where we boarded a crowded minibus, called a marshrutka, bound for Nagorno-Karabakh’s capital, Stepanakert — a trip that would take eight hours. Aside from two Asian tourists, the bus was filled with local women carrying toddlers, and old men, a few of whom played cards on an upturned cardboard box. The final part of the route twisted almost 10 miles through the Lachin Corridor, a mountain pass that had previously been (or still is, depending on whom you ask) a part of Azerbaijan. By the time we got to Stepanakert, it was raining. We headed to the Foreign Ministry to pick up our travel papers, checked into a simple hotel and fell asleep. Early the next morning, the sun still burning off the night’s fog, we explored the covered market in central Stepanakert. The air was filled with the scent of ripe cherries and local herbs. In one corner, two women with faded aprons and orange-tinted hair worked over a griddle. The first rolled balls of dough into discs. To each disc, the second added a small mountain of chopped herbs and then folded the dough over the filling. The grilled stuffed bread, called jingalov hats, tasted of pungent mustard greens and watercress. A 20-minute drive away, in the town of Shoushi, we met Saro Saryan, who, with his wife, runs a homestay, which would become our base. Dressed in a blue Ministry of Civil Defense uniform and cap, Saryan greeted us in his booming voice. “Russ? Come,” he said. Saryan walked with us around town, first showing us the old fortress walls, and then the Tolkienesque Ghazanchetsots Cathedral, built of white limestone. As we approached a massive stone building that stood gutted, Saryan said,

“This used to be a university. My hope is that one day you can come back and see students here.” Past bombings had transformed the broad hallways. In one room, the ceiling had been replaced by sky, the floor was covered in kudzu-like shrubs, and tufts of wildflowers clung to empty niches. Shoushi clearly has seen hardship upon hardship. One of the only Azeri-majority strongholds in the 1980s, then called Shusha, it was the staging site for rocket attacks on Stepanakert, which was mainly populated by Armenians. Much of the town, including the university, was damaged first by Armenian bombardment, and then by the Azeris after the Armenians took control in 1992. The capture of the town by the Armenians was a turning point in the war. That evening, for 5,000 dram each (around $12), we slept in a room around the corner from the Saryans’ kitchen. On most days we sat down with the Saryan family to a dinner of lavash bread, fresh cheese, honey and grilled meat or stuffed grape leaves.

capped peaks and over the infamous Sotk Pass and its open-pit gold mine. Joined by an Austrian named Barbara who had also been staying at Saryan’s, we charted the route with a stop at a thermal spring. As we approached the Zuar spring, Barbara gasped. The natural pool was belching soap bubbles from the soap someone had dumped in. Dozens of middle-aged men splashed about. Immediately the center of attention, we had no choice but to join them. After a quick splash, we were invited for a warm beer and a shot of throatscorching mulberry vodka. We continued to the town of Kalbajar, ascending a 6,500foot plateau via a series of steep switchbacks. Like Agdam, this place was mainly non-Armenian before the war; it is now controlled by the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Kalbajar, too, looked like a ghost town — except that some of the homes were occupied by ethnic Armenians, many from the Armenian diaspora, coming from Georgia, Russia

and elsewhere. With almost no tourism infrastructure, a doctor arranged a place for us in a hospital outbuilding where we slept on two wobbly metal beds. In the morning, we headed back toward Armenia with two young men we had hired to drive us in a 72-horsepower Soviet-built Lada Niva. We traveled for hours, over mountains, into valleys and back up again. Finally we came to the Sotk Pass atop a rocky hill of debris dumped over the edge of the mountain by huge mining trucks. The road went from dirt to fist-size stones. Crossing this geo-industrial outpost was like passing through a portal.

The earth itself seemed to be in upheaval, with whorls of dust spinning into the air by heavily laden trucks. And then it was over. We headed back down the other side, back into Armenia without so much as a sign to mark the border. But my mind was still running in circles around Nagorno-Karabakh. I was thinking mainly about the war, and about Saryan’s son, who, the day after graduating from high school, had led us to a gorge near Shoushi. I asked him if he could imagine having an Azeri friend. And, as if the question itself had puzzled him, he said, “Why not?”

Exploring the ruins Over the next few days we hired a taxi, so we could see more of the region’s Armenian ruins. There was the whitestone Amaras monastery, swathed in knee-high grasses and the occasional wild poppy plant; the 13th-century Gandzasar monastery, whose walls and floor, some believe, contain the head of John the Baptist, the jaw of Gregory the Illuminator and the right hand of St. Zachariah; and Dadivank, where immense Armenian steles known as khachkars, some over 1,000 years old, stood in repose. At one point, while traveling on the Stepanakert-Martakert Highway in a battered taxi, I saw the ruins of stone buildings. “Agdam?” I asked the driver. “Agdam,” he answered, quietly. “No photo.” Agdam had been an Azeri village that the Armenians had razed during the war. Some 40,000 people fled, and many were killed. As hundreds of abandoned homes, many reduced to foundations, came into view, the driver stepped hard on the gas. We had only two days to travel via the northern road from Kalbajar province back to Armenia — amid snow-

CELEBRATION, Fla. — It’s the happiest condo on Earth. Filled to the brim with plush dolls, pin and key-chain displays and thousands of figurines — some more than 2 feet tall — Janet Esteves’ home is a monument to Mickey Mouse. Esteves, a 57-year-old Celebration, Fla., woman, has held the record for the largest documented Mickey Mouse memorabilia collection in the world since 2006. Back then, she set the record with more than 2,100 items. The latest Guinness World Records count put Esteves’ collection at 4,127 items, but she estimates that she has about 2,000 more pieces still waiting to be cataloged and counted. “This is a passion,” she said. “Actually, it’s an obsession.

Those younger than 5 are admitted for free. The maze is open on Fridays in October from 3 to 7 p.m., on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Smith Rock Ranch will also have pumpkins of all sorts for sale, the common orange ones going for 30 cents a pound. The prices of specialty pumpkins will vary. The pumpkin patch will be open Monday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m., and on weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition, the ranch will offer a marketplace selling local apples, honey and jam. The famous pumpkin cannon, a device for chucking pumpkins, will also be available at the ranch. Visitors can catch live music each weekend in October. The ranch will also have a car show on Oct. 7 from noon to 4 p.m. The Smith Rock Ranch will be open through Oct. 31.

Though many of their pieces are already on display, dozens of figurines still fill their garage waiting for a more permanent home inside. “I’m always looking for empty spaces on the walls and thinking, ‘Which Mickey can I put there?’” Janet Esteves said. When looking for the perfect place for a Mickey Mouse, there are only two rules: No Mickey in the master suite — that area is just for the couple — and no Mickey in Juan Esteves’ office. That’s the territory for his “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” memorabilia. Now Janet Esteves is setting her sights on more-personal collectibles.

The ranch opened Saturday, and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekend throughout October. In addition to pumpkins, the ranch will offer hay rides for $3 per person, pony rides for $6 per child, a petting zoo for $3 per child, and archery for $3.50 per person. There will also be a child’s play area, which can be accessed for $3.50 per child. Upick corn will cost $1 for three pieces, and U-dig potatoes will cost $1 per pound. A country store at the ranch will offer local produce, grass-finished beef cuts, natural pork cuts, raw local honey and crafts made by local artisans. On Saturday, the ranch will host Farm Festival Day, an event benefitting the Opportunity Foundation of Central Oregon. The event will feature hay rides, live music, pony rides, old fashioned games, and a small animals auction. The cafe will also be open during the festival, and will feature a beer garden. The pumpkin patch will be closed Monday through Friday to offer educational field trips to local schools. For more information about the Terrebonne pumpkin patches, visit www.ddranch. net or

‘Big science’ at the top of Mauna Kea in Hawaii By Brian J. Cantwell The Seattle Times

ATOP MAUNA KEA, Hawaii — If you count from sea level, we were 13,796 feet up, almost as high as Mount Rainier. Plenty high enough. But if you count from the ocean floor? My Big Island tour group was shivering in thin air atop the Earth’s highest mountain — 33,500 feet from its waterlogged base to pumice-laden peak. And that measure seemed the more meaningful, because this place seemed to have far more to do with outer space than with anything terrestrial. As the sunset painted clouds tropical hues of mango and papaya — this was still Hawaii, after all — the nightly crowd of parka-clad, camerasnapping tourists looked like so many geckos swarming around a dozen enormous observatories dotting the top of Hawaii’s highest peak. Amid tomato-red cinder cones, about the only thing that grows is the rare silver sword plant. The big crop atop Mauna Kea is telescopes, including the world’s two largest functional telescopes, with mirrors 33 feet across, at the W.M. Keck Observatory. (By way of comparison, the Hubble Space Telescope comes in at a measly 8 feet.) Being here is much more than a chance to see a pretty sunset — though those can be amazing. It’s a bit like going to Cape Canaveral for a rocket launch. Every visitor to the summit of this dormant volcano is giddy, and not just from thin air. “It’s a very high-powered, high-level group of astronomers here,” tour guide Greg Brown told our van full of visitors. “It’s big science!”

For the science buff Hundreds of scientists and engineers support the Mauna Kea observatories, while data from the telescopes are transmitted worldwide to astronomers. One night’s use of a Keck telescope is valued at $50,000. The Keck Observatory alone is credited with detecting more planets outside our solar system than any other observation post, and helped in discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe, for which astronomers earned the 2011 Nobel Prize in physics. Just seeing this place makes you feel smarter. Other observatories at the top represent partners such as NASA, the Smithsonian, governments from Japan to the United Kingdom, and universities such as Cal Tech. The high altitude — above 40 percent of the Earth’s atmosphere — along with dark skies and dry, clean air attracted astronomers to Mauna Kea starting in 1964 when the state of Hawaii spent $42,000 to build the cliff-climbing road, the third highest in the United States “Usually it’s so dry up here you can’t see your breath in the cold!” Brown told our group as our van headed up like a plane taking off. A strong island-wide ordinance restricting outdoor lighting helps keep astronomers happy. In case you’ve wondered why the Big Island has strange yellow-hued streetlights, it’s because their light spectrum interferes less with the telescopes. One interpretation of Mauna Kea’s name is “white mountain,” since it’s the only place in Hawaii to regularly get winter snow. “Here you’ll see the only example of snow-removal equipment in the state of Hawaii!” Brown quipped as we drove past a road-crew barn. But snow clouds, or any clouds, don’t often cover the summit. The proportion of clear nights is among the highest in the world, and astronomers continue to pledge their allegiance to Mauna Kea: The next big thing coming here is the Thirty Meter Telescope, three times larger than any on Earth, so powerful that it will bring in to view galaxies forming at the edge of the observable universe, near the beginning of time. (Chew on that along with your macadamianut fudge.) Construction may begin by year’s end at a cost of up to $1.2 billion. Backers include Japan, India, China and universities across Canada and California. Visiting Mauna Kea is a spe-

If you go TOURS I took the Mauna Kea Summit and Stars Adventure ($200, including picnic dinner and one-hour stargazing party) with Hawaii Forest & Trail (800464-1993 or www The 14passenger van left the town of Kailua-Kona at 3 p.m. and returned around 10:30 p.m., with about 45 minutes to watch sunset at the summit. A guide provided details on natural, cultural and geologic history; fellow passengers agreed it was worth the price. A sampling of other tour operators: • Mauna Kea Summit Adventures offers a 15 percent discount off the $200 fee for early bookings in off-peak times; 888-3222366 or www.maunakea .com. • Jack’s Tours, 800-4425557 or www.jackshawaii .com.

Outside the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope, visitors photograph the sunset atop Hawaii’s Mauna Kea, where temperatures often require warm parkas, even in summer.

cial thrill for science buffs, but don’t expect to peek through one of the big telescopes (see the price tag, above). And while most tour operators go up for sunset, the few observatories that welcome visitors close at 4 p.m., so unless you go up on your own you won’t get inside. Even in a comfortable tour van specially built for the steep road, it’s no drive to the beach. As we climbed, Brown warned us of the hazards of altitude sickness. “You might be short of breath, you might feel a little dizzy,” he warned. If those symptoms, or headache, are severe, he said, “I have a little bottle of oxygen and I hook you up to Greg’s Oxygen Bar and get you down the hill.” To acclimate to the elevation change, we’d stopped for a picnic dinner in cypress woods near the 7,000-foot level. Other tour groups and visitors typically stop at the 9,300-foot level at the visitor-information station at the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy, named for Ellison Onizuka, a hometown Kona astronaut who died in the Challenger space shuttle explosion in 1986.

Authorities urge summit visitors to use four-wheel drive vehicles because of the steep, rough road, and to respect the altitude at the summit, where temperatures often get down to freezing. Kids younger than 16 and anybody with health problems are strongly discouraged from going higher than the visitor center. At the summit, we donned parkas provided by our guide. For my early-June visit, the temperature was in the upper 30s, with winds to 20 mph. Fingers quickly numbed. The wind was 83 mph a few days earlier. The combination of excitement and low oxygen seemed to transform the tour group into giggly schoolkids, gawking at the summit’s moonlike landscape dotted with gleaming observatory domes. “Oh, wow! Look at the clouds, and the clouds above the clouds!” said Shelley Burr, a Boeing employee visiting from Seattle. “You don’t have words for this. It’s the top of the world!” After a half-hour of wild photo snapping, Brown called out, “Look, Gemini Northern (observatory) is rotating, and Keck has their doors open!” The observatories were opening for the night. It felt like a sci-fi movie set. It would be a shame to get up in that clear air and not wait for stars to come out. So we drove back to the visitor center where Brown set up an 11-inch-wide telescope for our own star party, which included both the Northern Star and Southern Cross in one swivel of the head. On the dark road back to the Kona hotel strip, Brown suddenly braked the van to point out the Big Island’s active volcano. “Look, over near the base of Mauna Loa, see that red glow? That’s Kilauea!” Whoa. The glow from lava from the planet’s bow-



TRAVELER’S TIPS • For the best stargazing, plan to visit on a night with little or no moon visible. • It is possible to visit the summit of Mauna Kea without paying for a private tour, but the challenges are significant. See “Going on your own” for more details.

els capped off the night, and brought us all back to Earth.

A sacred mountain To the outside world, Mauna Kea may be a famous center for astronomy. To native Hawaiians, it is a sacred place ancestors visited for centuries in a quest to understand spiritual connections between earth and the heavens. To this day, a humble stone and wood lele, or altar, overlooks the observatories from the very summit of Mauna Kea. Continued expansion of the mountain’s use by astronomers is a subject of controversy. In Hawaiian culture, Poliahu, the icy goddess of Mauna Kea, is the antithesis of her fiery archrival, Pele, the goddess of volcanoes. Many say the name Mauna Kea is a shortened version of Mauna a Wakea, meaning “the mountain of Wakea.” Wakea is the sky father in the Hawaiian creation story, in which the earth mother gives birth to the island of Hawaii, and this volcanic peak is the child’s navel.

Going on your own It’s possible to visit Mauna Kea’s summit on your own — without a guided tour — during daylight hours, and some observatories offer tours (Subaru Telescope: www.naoj .org/Information/Tour/Summit) or visitor galleries (Keck Observatory: www.keck visiting). There are no opportunities to “look through” the telescopes at the summit, and visitors are not allowed at the summit after dark. (Since observatory visiting hours end at 4 p.m., you’ll have a long wait to see sunset, if that’s a goal.) The challenge is getting to the top. Only one car-rental firm permits patrons to drive up Mauna Kea: Harper Car and Truck Rental (www.harpers or 800852-9993). Based on availability, a one-day rental of a fourwheel drive SUV (required for Mauna Kea) can cost almost

as much as the commercial tour rate for one person. (An inquiry in late spring found a rate of $170, another in early fall, $119.) While there’s no checkpoint to stop you from driving a regular rental car to the summit (and people do), it voids your rental contract, with potentially nasty consequences should you have an accident or breakdown. You can hike to the summit from the visitor center, a distance of 7 miles with 4,600 feet of elevation gain. Conditions are very challenging, and hikers should allow up to 8 hours for the round-trip. See www

TRAVELER’S TIPS •There are no stores, restaurants or gas stations on Mauna Kea, and few public restrooms. • If you drive to the top, start with a full fuel tank; engines use extra fuel on the steep grade and in the thin air.

Do’s and don’ts for debaters By Barbara A. Perry Special to The Washington Post.


rom Richard Nixon’s 5 o’clock shadow to George H.W. Bush’s glance at his watch, lasting images inevitably emerge from presidential and vice presidential debates. And lines from historic contests can have far more longevity than the speakers’ political careers: Lloyd Bentsen’s “You’re no Jack Kennedy.” Ronald Reagan’s “There you go again!” In its presidential oral-history archives, the University of Virginia’s Miller Center has discovered timeless debate lessons learned by candidates and their advisers.

Show emotion When Bernie Shaw asked that opening question (about the hypothetical rape and murder of Democratic nominee Michael Dukakis’ wife) . . . all of us went: “Huuuh. Oh, my God, what an opener.” Then, when Dukakis gave the answer, which was dreadful, like a robot, unfeeling, no emotions, cerebral, it fit the entire narrative that we were trying to portray him in. Several of us said: “We just won. Not just the debate. This is over.” — David Demarest, campaign communications director for George H.W. Bush, on the 1988 debates

Deflect zingers The debate coverage focused on (Lloyd Bentsen’s) Kennedy line. People came up afterwards and said, “You should have had a lot of comebacks on that.” I said: “OK, fine, you tell me what. The most interesting comeback would have been, ‘Now wait a second, if my memory is correct, you voted for Sen. (Lyndon) Johnson in those days. You weren’t even for Sen. Kennedy when he was running for president, so what’s this buddy-buddy business?’ That was the best one.” — Vice President Dan Quayle, on his 1988 debate with Lloyd Bentsen

Don’t look at your watch — ever At the very beginning of the debate, Carole (Simpson) . . . had said to President Bush, Bill Clinton and to Ross Perot, “Now, there won’t be any filibustering here.” And she said, “That means you, too, Mr. Perot,” because Ross Perot had been cited in the press many times for his tendency to go on and on; that had happened in previous debates. So President Bush, at one point during the debate when Ross Perot was going on at great, great length, looked at Carole — and if you watch the tape, you’ll see he looked at her, then his watch, suggesting clearly, “Hey, Perot’s time is up” — meaning he’s filibustering. The media picked it up and wrote the story as another example that he didn’t get it. — Phillip D. Brady, staff secretary to George H.W. Bush, on the 1992 debates


Russians line up to be

HUMAN GUINEA PIGS • Pharmaceutical companies pursuing drug trials find a gold mine of volunteers, many of whom sign up for a chance at medical care that’s otherwise unobtainable By Andrew E. Kramer • New York Times News Service


ike a dream patient conjured up in the boardroom of a pharmaceutical company, the Russian grandmother accepted the risks of the drug she was taking without complaint and cheerily endured even extraordinary side

effects. As a test subject in a Russian clinical trial for an experimental weight loss drug, Galina Malinina had to inject herself in the stomach daily. “No problem,” she said. “The needle is thin and the dose is small.” The first time she did this at a hospital where longfaced, white-robed doctors stood by and observed her intently, Malinina soon vomited. After that, she threw up every day for two weeks, yet stuck to the regimen, something valued by companies, as dropouts are expensive. “It’s wonderful,” she said of the test substance, a weight loss serum under development by Danish biotechnology giant Novo Nordisk. In addition to losing 22 pounds in a year, she said, “I became more lively; I walk easier and I have energy.” Malinina’s willingness, like that of thousands of other Russians, to take part in drug trials illustrates a remarkably advantageous development for the international pharmaceutical industry, which is running up against high costs and

recruitment difficulties in the United States and Europe. Russian regulators, Russian doctors and even many patients are increasingly embracing any chance they can get to take part in medical experiments. Patients, as was the case with Malinina, are eager to join trials because often it is the only way to receive modern medical care. That creates a pool of willing test subjects. The government of President Vladimir Putin, eager to diversify Russia’s economy away from oil dependence, welcomes the jobs and high-tech investment associated with clinical trials, and has eased access for drug companies to the Russian patients as an incentive to lure in these benefits. In fact, under a law passed in 2010, ostensibly on

health grounds, foreign drug companies must test medicine on Russians for it to be marketed in Russia. The law has the effect of compelling investment in clinical testing on Russians, trade groups say. And it is working. The number of drugs tested on Russians has shot up over the past year. Russian regulators approved 448 clinical trials in the first six months of 2012, compared with 201 in the same period a year earlier — an increase of 96 percent. Russia is not alone in opening the doors of hospitals in the national health system to drug companies looking for test subjects, in a quid pro quo with the international industry that conducts tests globally for a better demographic representation.

“I understand I won’t get any healthier. So it’s important not to get worse. And it hasn’t gotten worse. So I’m thankful.” — Albert Chupikov, 75, cardiac patient, who says a drug trial he enrolled in in Moscow has kept him alive

Feel their pain We talked about when (Democratic nominee Bill) Clinton was asked about the national debt by an African-American woman (in the town hall debate). She said, “How has the national debt affected you personally?” What she meant to say was, “How bad is the economy?” Bush struggled with trying to figure out — and he was so much of a literalist, he kept trying to figure out what it was she was getting at, and then he didn’t give a very good answer. Then Clinton walks right up to her, and he talks about all the people that he knows personally in Arkansas who lost their jobs and their factories, and he’s talking to her like she’s the only person in the universe. It was just such a contrast. It was great. He was incredibly compelling. Clinton also had gone to that site before, and he had talked to his media people. He knew where the camera shoots were, and he knew when they’d be doing an over-the-shoulder cut. He was into that sort of stuff. Bush hated that. He no more would have done that than fly to the moon. — David Demarest, White House communications director for George H.W. Bush, on the 1992 debates — Russell L. Riley is chair of, and Barbara A. Perry is a senior fellow in, the Miller Center’s Presidential Oral History Program at the University of Virginia.

Bagley for Deschutes circuit court judge


o matter who wins the Deschutes County Circuit Court judgeship in November, voters can’t lose. Andy Balyeat and Beth Bagley are both fully quali-

fied for the post, with relevant legal experience, active participation in the community and impressive lists of those who endorse them. They defeated two other candidates in the May primary, with 7,195 votes cast for Balyeat and 9,578 for Bagley. But voters must make a choice, and we urge them to support Bagley. Balyeat, 52, earned his law degree from Ohio Northern University and launched his career in Ohio before moving to Oregon in the mid-1990s. After some early experience as a criminal prosecutor, he has been in private practice, now with Balyeat & Eager LLP in Bend. He serves a wide range of clients, primarily in civil litigation and estate planning, and he has an active appellate practice across the state. In addition, he has served as mediator or arbitrator in nearly 150 cases since 2001. His community activities have included coaching for the Bend Park & Recreation District and serving as a board member for the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation. Bagley, 38, earned her law degree at the University of Minnesota Law School and launched her career as a public defender in Coos County. After a brief stint in the prosecutor’s office there, she joined the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office in 2002. She is now a supervising attorney handling major crimes, ranging from murder to child abuse to drug and weapon offenses. Her community activities have focused on the law and education, and she serves as an elected member of the Bend-La Pine School Board. Our endorsement goes to Bagley because of the relevance of both her professional experience and her service on the school board. In today’s Deschutes County Circuit Court, nearly 70 percent

Our endorsement goes to Bagley because of the relevance of both her professional experience and her service on the school board. of time is spent on criminal cases, according to an estimate from the court. That places enormous value on Bagley’s extensive and current experience as a prosecutor, and her understanding of the structure and operations of the Deschutes County Circuit Court. There’s also something to be said for a person who decides to devote her life to public service. Bagley’s school board position has given her the opportunity to grapple with difficult community issues and make decisions in the glare of the public eye. Resolving challenging public policy issues in a sometimes contentious situation could be good background for the bench. We’ve been impressed with Bagley’s thoughtfulness and willingness to defend her positions. Some months ago, when the school board considered admission policies for its magnet schools, Bagley was alone in supporting changes. Despite knowing she was unlikely to gain other board members’ support, she made an eloquent speech in favor of change. And when she visited The Bulletin’s editorial board, Bagley’s analysis of death penalty issues showed a passionate focus on the unexpected effect judicial decisions can have on survivors. We believe our court will benefit from that kind of passion and analysis combined with relevant talent and experience.

$1M gift for OSU-Cascades comes at opportune time


here’s no better way to show a community’s support for a project than by giving money when asked. That’s no doubt why OSU-Cascades must come up with at least $4 million in private money by the end of next year to demonstrate this community’s commitment to its future as a fouryear college.

The effort got a huge boost last week when the Tykeson Family Charitable Trust put a cool $1 million on the table. The family that owns BendBroadband could not have said more loudly that it believes not only in the school, but in the region that will benefit from it. The gift brings the total raised to

date to $2.8 million, nearly threequarters of the total needed. Now the push is on. OSU-Cascades’ plan rests not only on local gifts, but on the Oregon Legislature, which must approve the sale of $16 million in bonds for the expansion to continue. Broad community support for the school helps quiet the few remaining critics of the plan, even as it tells lawmakers and the Oregon University System that yes, we do believe in the future of OSU-Cascades as a four-year school. The Tykeson gift is a major demonstration of support for that future. It could not have come at a better time.

My Nickel’s Worth We need government to restrain corporations There is an Orwellian thought that in the future we will build all sorts of robots to do our work. We will develop artificial intelligence for these robots and they will replicate themselves and eventually we will be enslaved by the robots. Farfetched, you say, but I say it has already happened. We invented corporations to pool our capital and resources to make things bigger, better and cheaper than ever before. These corporations are designed to maximize profits; the bottom line is the holy grail. Human need, compassion and loyalty mean nothing. We the people are enslaved to the corporations. You say this is the impossible rant of a person who promotes class warfare, but I tell you class warfare has already taken place and we the people have lost. I want to see the playing field leveled back in favor of the working class. The best thing we could do is let all the Bush tax cuts expire and get this country back on a fiscally responsible path. We need big government that can control and regulate these corporations that have run out of control for far too long. The problem is the government is afraid of the corporations and we need it the other way around, where the corporations fear the government. Remember, we are the government: “We the people ... in order to form a more perfect union ... do ordain and establish this Constitution.� George Rondema Redmond

Get the ‘real’ facts before voting In her Sept. 14 letter, Caroline

The problem is the government is afraid of the corporations and we need it the other way around, where the corporations fear the government. Remember, we are the government.

McKee makes the absolutely jawdropping assertion that she believes in “honesty and facts.� This after offering a string of accusations that are neither honest nor factual. Some examples: You can’t say Republicans (I assume that this is who her “they� are) cut spending for education, infrastructure or anything else since they have not had control of spending for almost six years, especially when more than $5 trillion has been added to the national debt during that time. No one has proposed giving vouchers to current Medicare recipients. No one has claimed that “personal responsibility� is exclusive to them and no one else. Republicans have not prevented the troops being brought home from Afghanistan or the closing of Gitmo. Yes, you should think before voting, but be sure you have “real� facts and not distortions and half-truths. Jeff Keller Bend

Remember 20-mph speed zones Amid the campaign season and as we go about our busy lives, we often forget about important local matters. One of these matters is the 20-mph speed zones on the roads

around our schools. As a parent, driver and cyclist, I urge all my fellow Bendites to drive carefully and safely, paying particular attention to speed zones, crosswalks, pedestrians and bicycles. And to the hardworking police officers of our town: Please enforce the speed zone and crosswalk laws, especially near our schools. Thanks. Ethan Singer Bend

Treating juvenile offenders like 4-year-olds In the ongoing discussions about the need for additional adult jail space in Deschutes County and the prospect of converting the facility for incarcerated juvenile offenders into an adult jail, a Sept. 15 story in The Bulletin reported Community Justice Director Ken Hales’ recent description of a “troubling scenario,� to the county commissioners. It went something like this: Hales said a youth who acts out in the county’s juvenile detention facility can take a time-out from the group in a distant corner of the spacious facility. As the story goes on, the description of the juvenile offender’s timeout sometimes includes yelling and screaming, with the upset juvenile occasionally making a bigger ruckus in his cell while the youth lies on his back and kicks the wall or door. The goal, according to Hales, is to let them work it out. About there I had to stop for a moment and confirm I was reading a newspaper article about jail space instead of an advice column in a parenting magazine on coping with a temper tantrum-prone 4-year-old.

Kudos to all who helped evacuate backcountry during fire By John Rettig e would like to commend all of the agencies and individuals involved in the effort to extract everyone safely from the backcountry around the Pole Creek Fire during the first few days after it was reported. Our climbing team successfully summited North Sister on Sunday, Sept. 9. We had seen the fire near the summit, and it was not clear exactly where it was located relative to the route we intended to use for our pack out. We attempted to cautiously hike out to Pole Creek on Sunday evening, but encountered the fire perimeter a mere 30 minutes away from the trailhead. We instead backtracked to Soap Creek to make a new plan.


Although we were a pretty selfsufficient group, we had no outside information at the time about where to safely evacuate. We chose — correctly, it turns out — to head south, away from the fire and toward Park Meadows Trailhead. We woke the U.S. Forest Service rangers we encountered at Park Meadows at 4 a.m. Monday, and they offered their professional assistance immediately to help us get out to a trailhead in the morning that would allow evacuation back into Sisters. They also provided us what information they could about our cars that were parked at the Pole Creek Trailhead. We packed out at daybreak to the trailhead, to be met precisely at the appointed time by Deschutes County

IN MY VIEW Search and Rescue volunteers, who evacuated our group to Sisters using two shuttles. Since it wasn’t clear at the time if the fire was going to overrun this trailhead, the Forest Service rangers at the site generously offered our second group the use of a vehicle in the parking area, should an emergency arise, along with instructions on where to evacuate safely. In Sisters, we checked in at the command center and got information from the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office regarding our vehicles at the trailhead. Everyone we encountered was very helpful and sympathetic to our situation. We also found out that we all had mes-

sages on our cellphones instructing us where to evacuate, and also to have us all check in with Search and Rescue once we were safe. Our names could only have been known through our wilderness registration permit, meaning someone had been very thorough in digging through these permits and following up, understanding that there was a slim possibility of getting a message to us in a limited coverage area. Our cars were delivered to us in a couple of hours, dirty but unharmed, by Search and Rescue volunteers, and we were back on the road to Portland within the hour. Our team was well-prepared, with food, water, shelter, clothing, stoves, navigational tools and the skills to use them, fitness and great morale.

That wasn’t known by the multiagency task force working on evacuation, however, and they erred on the conservative side. It was great to know that so many out there were concerned with finding us, directing us out safely, and evacuating us. Every single agency and individual we encountered was friendly, helpful, professional and genuinely concerned for our welfare and safety. We realize that any account we render of our experiences is bound to miss some agencies that were involved in the background or that we simply didn’t see, so we would like to simply commend all agencies and individuals involved. Well done! — John Rettig lives in Portland.




Election could mirror 1980 race T

here was only one presidential debate in 1980 between challenger Ronald Reagan and President Jimmy Carter. Just two days before the Oct. 28 debate, Carter was eight points ahead in the Gallup poll. A week after the debate, he lost to Reagan by nearly 10 percentage points. Reagan’s debate quip, “There you go again,” reminded voters of Carter’s chronic crabbiness. Even more devastating was Reagan’s final, direct question to American voters: “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” No one, it seemed, could muster a “Yes!” Yet there was more to the 1980 campaign than the final gamechanging debate rhetoric — and some of the details are relevant to 2012. Carter conceded that he could not run on his economic record — not with a high “misery index’ driven by high inflation, high interest rates, high gas prices and high unemployment. The lengthy Iranian hostage crisis finally began to highlight rather than mask Carter’s anemic domestic leadership. Without a record to defend, Carter instead pounded Reagan as too ill-informed and too dangerous to be president. The negative campaigning had not only worked but also seemed to get under Reagan’s skin. He kept going off topic while committing serial gaffes: He claimed that Cali-

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON fornia had eliminated its smog; that trees polluted as much as cars, that Alaska had more known oil than Saudi Arabia, and that new evidence cast doubt upon Darwin’s theory of evolution. Reagan got clumsily bogged down in distracting controversies about everything from Taiwan and the Vietnam War to the Ku Klux Klan and the stealth bomber program. Reagan fumbled facts and numbers constantly, as the nitpicking Carter blasted him for implausibly promising lower taxes, balanced budgets and vastly higher defense spending all at once. Throughout late summer, Reagan could not tap widespread voter dissatisfaction with Carter’s disastrous economic and foreign policy and his off-putting sanctimoniousness. Even more unfortunate for Reagan, Republican Congressman John Anderson announced a third-party candidacy. Anderson and a fourth candidate, Libertarian candidate Ed Clark, eventually combined to siphon off more than 6.5 million votes, most of which probably otherwise would have gone to Reagan. A desperate Reagan also was having difficulty getting Carter out of

the Rose Garden to debate. Finally, in late October, Reagan capitulated to Carter’s preconditions and met him one time, face to face, without Anderson present. In other words, until the very last week of the campaign, Reagan had an uphill fight. True, he eventually won a landslide victory in the Electoral College (489 to 49) and beat Carter handily in the popular vote. Yet Reagan only received a 51 percent majority. What had saved Reagan from a perfect storm of negative factors — gaffes, additional conservative candidates on the ballot, a single debate and a biased media — was not just the debate. Voter turnout was relatively low at only 53 percent. If Reagan’s conservative base was united and energized, Carter’s proved divided and indifferent. Reagan also won about a dozen (mostly Southern) states by less than 4 percent. Had just a few hundred thousand votes gone the other way in those states, the race might have been far closer than the eventual electoral and popular tallies indicated. What does 1980 tell us about 2012? Barack Obama, like Carter, can run neither on his dismal four-year stewardship of the economy nor on his collapsing Middle East policy. Instead, Obama, as Carter did, must stamp his opponent as too inexperienced, too out of touch and too uncaring to be president. While Cart-

er was a dull speaker and Obama, in contrast, possesses teleprompter eloquence, there is no evidence that Obama is any better a debater than was Carter. Turnout will matter. Challenger Mitt Romney, like Reagan, is said to have the more fired-up base, but the demography of the electorate is far different than it was 30 years ago and now may favor Obama. There are no third-party candidates to skew the result, but the polls seem just as volatile, as Obama, like Carter, usually surges ahead for a while, only to fall back to even in tortoise-and-the-hare style. Unless there is a war abroad or a financial crisis at home — such as the financial trauma that helped the struggling Obama surge past John McCain in mid-September 2008 — the race between an unapologetic liberal and a confessed conservative will go down to the last week. The winner probably won’t be decided by old video clips, gaffes or even campaign money, but by turnout and the October debates — depending on whether incumbent Obama comes across as a petulant Carter and challenger Romney appears an upbeat Reagan. As in 1980, voters want a better president — but they first have to be assured he’s on the ballot.

earching for Sugar Man” is a stunning documentary about an unsuccessful Detroit singer-songwriter named Sixto Rodriguez, who released two longforgotten albums in the early 1970s. Almost no one bought his albums, and his label dropped him. Rodriguez stopped making records and worked as a demolition man. What Rodriguez didn’t know, while working in demolition, was that he had become a spectacular success in South Africa — a giant, a legend, comparable to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Describing him as “the soundtrack to our lives,” South Africans bought hundreds of thousands of copies of his albums, starting in the 1970’s. “Searching for Sugar Man” is about the contrast between the failed career of Detroit’s obscure demolition man and the renown of South Africa’s mysterious rock icon. We like to think that intrinsic quality produces success, and that in free markets, quality will ultimately prevail. Social dynamics — who is conveying enthusiasm to whom, and how loudly, and where, and exactly when — can separate the rock icon from the demolition man, and mark the line between stunning success and crashing failure. An understanding of those dynamics tells us a lot about the role of serendipity in cultural markets, business, politics and other domains — and about why success and failure can be impossible to predict. Consider some evidence. A few years ago, social scientists Matthew Salganik, Duncan Watts and Peter Dodds created a large-scale version

of the tale of Rodriguez, in the form of an artificial music market on a website. More than 14,000 visitors to the site were given a list of 48 unknown songs from unknown bands. The experimenters randomly sorted half of the visitors into an “independent judgment” group, in which they were invited to listen to brief excerpts, to rate songs and to decide whether to download them. The other half were sorted into a “social influence” group, which was exactly the same except in just one respect: They could see how many times each song had been downloaded by other participants.

People in the social influence group were also randomly assigned to one of eight subgroups, in which they could see only the number of downloads in their own subgroup. You might expect that in the end, quality would always prevail — that the popularity of the songs, as measured by their download rankings, would be roughly the same in the independent group and in all eight of the social influence groups. That isn’t what happened. The identical song could be a hit or a flop, depending on whether a lot of other people were seen to have downloaded it. True, the songs that


DAVID BROOKS individual, family, company, neighborhood, religion, city government and national government. Because they were conservative, they tended to believe that power should be devolved down to the lower levels of this chain. They believed that people should lead disciplined, orderly lives, but doubted that individuals have the ability to do this alone, unaided by social custom and by God. So they were intensely interested in creating the sort of social, economic and political order that would encourage people to work hard, finish school and postpone childbearing until marriage. Ronald Reagan embodied both sides of this fusion, and George W. Bush tried to recreate it with his compassionate conservatism. But that effort was doomed because in the ensuing years, conservatism changed. In the polarized political conflict with liberalism, hostility toward gov-

ernment has become the organizing conservative principle. Economic conservatives have the money and the institutions. They have taken control. Traditional conservatism has gone into eclipse. These days, speakers at Republican gatherings almost always use the language of market conservatism — getting government off our backs, enhancing economic freedom. Even Mitt Romney, who subscribes to a faith that knows a lot about social capital, relies exclusively on the language of market conservatism. It’s not so much that today’s Republican politicians reject traditional, one-nation conservatism. They don’t even know it exists. There are few people on the conservative side who’d be willing to raise taxes on the affluent to fund mobility programs for the working class. There are very few willing to use government to actively intervene in chaotic neighborhoods, even when 40 percent of American kids are born out of wedlock. There are very few Republicans who protest against a House Republican budget proposal that cuts domestic discretionary spending to absurdly low levels.

The results have been unfortunate. Since they no longer speak in the language of social order, Republicans have very little to offer the less educated half of this country. Republicans have very little to say to Hispanic voters, who often come from cultures that place high value on communal solidarity. Republicans repeat formulas — government support equals dependency — that make sense according to free-market ideology, but oversimplify the real world. Republicans like Romney often rely on an economic language that seems corporate and alien to people who do not define themselves in economic terms. No wonder Romney has trouble relating. Some people blame bad campaign managers for Romney’s underperforming campaign, but the problem is deeper. Conservatism has lost the balance between economic and traditional conservatism. The Republican Party has abandoned half of its intellectual ammunition. It appeals to people as potential business owners, not as parents, neighbors and citizens. — David Brooks is a columnist for The New York Times.

did most fabulously in the independent group rarely did very badly, and the songs that did most horribly in the independent group rarely did spectacularly well — but otherwise, almost anything could happen. Social dynamics made Rodriguez in South Africa and broke him in the United States. Every day, social dynamics make or break books, movies, art and countless other products. Plenty of best-sellers, made possible by bandwagon or cascade effects, could easily have switched places with books you have never heard of. Actually the implications are far broader than that. On Election Day for the 2010 congressional races, certain Facebook users received a social message, a clickable “I voted,” including six pictures of randomly selected Facebook friends who had previously clicked that “I voted” button. Presented with those pictures, people were more likely to vote, and as a result of the experiment, hundreds of thousands of Americans who would not otherwise have voted did so. Successful entrepreneurs, movements and politicians benefit from the same dynamics that produce bestselling albums. Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan were immensely talented and appealing, but countless people voted and worked for them only because they saw that other people were doing so. Other immensely talented and appealing politicians go nowhere, only because they fail to catch an early wave. Social dynamics play a big role in the marketplace and democratic politics — and help to explain why success and failure can be predictably unpredictable. — Cass R. Sunstein is a professor of law at Harvard University.

Conservatism has lost balance in modern GOP hen I joined the staff of National Review as a lowly associate in 1984, the magazine, and the conservative movement itself, was an uncomfortable fusion of two different mentalities. On the one side, there were the economic conservatives. These were people that anybody following contemporary Republican politics would be familiar with. They spent a lot of time worrying about the way government intrudes upon economic liberty. They upheld freedom as their highest political value. They admired risktakers. They worried that excessive government would create a sclerotic nation with a dependent populace. But there was another sort of conservative, who would be less familiar now. This was the traditional conservative, intellectual heir to Edmund Burke, Russell Kirk, Clinton Rossiter and Catholic social teaching. This sort of conservative didn’t see society as a battleground between government and the private sector. Instead, the traditionalist wanted to preserve a society that functioned as a harmonious ecosystem, in which the different layers were nestled upon each other:

Mideast moderates speak out ne of the iron laws of Middle East politics has been that extremists go all the way and moderates tend to just go away. That is what made the march in Benghazi, Libya, so unusual recently. This time, the moderates did not just go away. They got together and stormed the headquarters of the Islamist militia Ansar al-Sharia, whose members are suspected of carrying out the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Having decried the voices of intolerance that so often intimidate everyone in that region, I find it heartening to see Libyans carrying signs like “We want justice for Chris” and “No more Al Qaeda” — and demanding that armed militias disband. This coincides with some brutally honest articles in the Arab/Muslim press — in response to rioting triggered by the idiotic YouTube video insulting the Prophet Muhammad — that are not the usual “What is wrong with America?” but, rather, “What is wrong with us, and how do we fix it?” On Monday, the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, which tracks the Arab/Muslim press, translated a searing critique written by Imad al-Din Hussein, a columnist for Al Shorouk, Cairo’s best daily newspaper: “We curse the West day and night, and criticize its (moral) disintegration and shamelessness, while relying on it for everything. ... We are a nation that contributes nothing to human civilization in the current era. ... We have become a burden on (other) nations. ... Had we truly implemented the essence of the directives of Islam and all (other) religions, we would have been at the forefront of the nations. The world will respect us when we return to being people who take part in human civilization, instead of (being) parasites who are spread out over the map of the advanced world, feeding off its production and later attacking it from morning until night. ... supporting Islam and the prophet of the Muslims should be done through work, production, values, and culture, not by storming embassies and murdering diplomats.” Mohammad Taqi, a liberal Pakistani columnist, writing in the Lahorebased Daily Times on Sept. 20, argued that “there is absolutely no excuse for violence and indeed murder most foul, as committed in Benghazi. Fighting hate with hate is sure to beget more hate. The way out is drowning the odious voices with voices of sanity, not curbing free speech and calls for murder.” The Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef wrote in Al Shorouk, translated by MEMRI, on Sept. 23: “We demand that the world respect our feelings, yet we do not respect the feelings of others. We scream blue murder when they outlaw the niqab in some European country or prevent (Muslims) from building minarets ... even though these countries continue to allow freedom of religion, as manifest in the building of mosques and in the preaching that takes place in their courtyards. Yet, in our countries, we do not allow others to publicly preach their beliefs. Maybe we should examine ourselves before (criticizing) others.” Whenever I was asked during the Iraq war, “How will you know when we’ve won?” I gave the same answer: When Salman Rushdie can give a lecture in Baghdad; when there is real freedom of speech in the heart of the Arab-Muslim world. There is no question that we need a respectful dialogue between Islam and the West, but, even more, we need a respectful dialogue between Muslims and Muslims. What matters is not what Arab/Muslim political parties and groupings tell us they stand for. What matters is what they tell themselves, in their own languages, about what they stand for and what excesses they will not tolerate. This internal debate had long been stifled by autocrats whose regimes traditionally suppressed extremist Islamist parties, but never really permitted their ideas to be countered with free speech. Are we seeing the start of that now with the emergence of free spaces and legitimate parties in the Arab world? Again, too early to say, but this moderate backlash to the extremist backlash is worth hailing — and watching.

Singer’s fortunes illustrate social dynamics By Cass R. Sunstein




Former TV writer satirizes Seattle “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” By Maria Semple (Little, Brown, 336 pgs., $25.99) By Connie Ogle The Miami Herald

If Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” represented the dark heart of the summer literature, Maria Semple’s breezy “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” embodies the sunnier, funnier side. A satiric take on all things Seattle — Microsoft, ambitious private-school parents, crunchy-granola types, politically correct self-helpers who join groups like Victims Against Victimhood, wild blackberries that ravage the hillsides untamed, the rain, oh God, the rain — the novel is scathing and funny, yet has a surprising generosity toward family dynamics, forgiveness and the burden of genius. It is an absolute delight. A patchwork epistolary novel that includes emails and official documents, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is the narrative of one Bee “Balakrishna” Fox (that “Balakrishna” was a mistake, for the record). Bee is an eighth-grader who lives with her Microsoft superhero dad and her increasingly manic mom, Bernadette, a formerly famous architect. A planned family trip to Antarctica sets off a series of increasingly insane events that prompt Bernadette to vanish, and Bee is determined to find her mother — even if she has to travel to the edge of the known universe to do it. Semple, a former TV writer, has a flair for satire and screwball high jinks, and she has produced a book that you never want to finish.

Reading habits are Wilson sisters’ an open book online memoir tells story of Heart

By Aisha Sultan

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

ST. LOUIS — Washington University law professor Neil Richards worries about a day when everyone knows what everyone else is reading. From social reader apps, which automatically share what users are reading on Facebook, to tablets and ereading devices, which store detailed reading data, the laws protecting individuals haven’t kept up with technology, he says. Media reports from earlier this summer documented a sharp decline in the numbers of people using news social reader apps. The decline has continued for some, but the latest data also reaffirm some growth in select apps, including ESPN, the Huffington Post and “The way we read is really changing,” Richards said. “It used to be we could go to a bookstore, with a $5 bill, and there would be no record that we had read that book.” That kind of privacy does not exist on tablet devices such as the new Kindle Fire HD, which became available earlier this month. The older Kindle Fire sold out last month and was described by Amazon as the “most successful product launch in the history” of the company. Richards points out that when consumers read on devices such as the Kindle, “Amazon knows exactly who you are, all the books you have bought, what you are reading, what page you are on, which passages you’ve highlighted and how long it takes to read.” Digital books now outsell paperbacks on, and more than 18 million ereaders are expected to be sold this year. Apple users have downloaded more than 100 million e-books via iBooks. Corporations such as Apple with its popular iPad, Barnes & Noble with the Nook and Amazon know much more than librarians ever did about individual reading habits. But unlike librarians, who are bound by professional ethics and dozens of statutes protecting individuals, companies are guided by privacy policies they write themselves, Richards said. Plus, they have a business interest in the information collected. In a Wall Street Journal story, Amazon said that it collected data in aggregate, on group reading habits, not targeting individuals. The company,

“Kicking & Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll” By Ann & Nancy Wilson with Charles Cross (It Books/HarperCollins, 280 pgs., $27.99) By Howard Cohen The Miami Herald

Christian Gooden / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Neil Richards, a professor of privacy law at Washington University in St. Louis, is concerned that reading in the digital age may lead to the loss of “our ability to read confidentially.”

however, has declined to share how it analyzes and uses the Kindle data it gathers. Privacy advocacy organizations have pushed for laws to prevent an individual’s reading habits from being given to government authorities without a court order. California passed the Reader Privacy Act of 2011, which went into effect this year, requiring authorities to have such an order before digital booksellers disclose customer reading profiles. Richards recently presented a paper he published this spring in the Georgetown Law Journal about the perils of “social reading” in which what individuals read may be “frictionlessly shared” with friends and acquaintances on social networks such as Facebook, in collaboration with some newspapers. “If we give up our ability to read confidentially, we’ve lost a real freedom of belief and freedom of thought, which I believe are our most important civil liberties,” Richards said. At stake, he argues, is our intellectual privacy, which he defines as “our ability to read and think and make up our minds about what we think about the world without other people watching or hearing.” Frasat Chaudhry, a neurologist practicing in Chesterfield, Mo., says sites that require her to create an account, log in and publicize what she has read annoy her, and she refuses to use them. “I don’t want someone making a judgment of me because of what I’m reading,” she said. “I’m not comfortable with it at all.”

Many users seem to agree with Chaudhry, according to the figures from App, which show that the Washington Post Social Reader users plummeted from 17.4 million monthly active users in April to 7.5 million in September. The Guardian’s social reading app also lost users, from a high of 3.9 million monthly users in March to 2.5 million earlier this month. The WP Social Reader is built on “the simple thesis that you want to know and read what your friends are reading,” according to the Washington Post website. And while even critics such as Richards are quick to point out that there are advantages to being able to share recommendations about reading material, movies and music, it’s the automatic default set to share that he finds so troubling. He argues that just as society recognized in the past that certain professionals were fiduciaries of our information bound by certain codes of confidentiality, in the digital age those type of standards ought to apply to digital bookstores, search engines and providers of video. The privacy of reading and searching online matters if we care about individuals’ being able to share who they are with whom they want, he said. “It’s important for the same reason we don’t like government surveillance of our lives. “If we are always being watched, we will turn the entire of our society into the eighth grade, and that would be a real tragedy.”

Teen author’s tale of alternate Victorian London grabs attention “The Peculiar” By Stefan Bachmann (Greenwillow Books, 384 pgs., $16.99) By Susan Carpenter Los Angeles Times

Hardcover nonfiction

The average 16-year-old who writes usually does so for school, bringing the same level of rigor and enthusiasm to the endeavor as he would to cleaning a public toilet. Not Stefan Bachmann, a teenager who makes his authorial debut with a middle-grade novel so polished and fun to read that one would never suspect he was in high school when he began to write it. “The Peculiar” is the title of Bachmann’s steampunk fairy tale set in an alternate Victorian-era London — a book that, at times, recalls Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment,” Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities” and more recent classics, such as J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” and Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” It’s a story populated with unusual characters

and mechanical contraptions that service a gruesome plot involving a serial kid-snatcher, a dunderheaded parliamentarian, an evil fairy and a pair of impoverished kids who live in the fairy slums and abide by a single rule. “Don’t get yourself noticed and you won’t get yourself hanged” is the mantra of Bartholomew Kettle and his sister Hettie. Both are ugly, halffairy changelings, or peculiars, though Bartholomew looks more human. Hettie’s ears are pointed and tree branches sprout from her scalp, making her a prime target for the kid-snatcher, who hasn’t just been plucking half-fairy children from the slums where the Kettles live. Whoever it is has been hollowing out their bodies and leaving their corpses floating in the Thames. It’s a grim story, but Bachmann leavens the dark goings-on with whimsy, assigning characters such memo-

rable names as Mr. Lickerish and Lord Lillicrap and, like so many beloved stories for children, casting the adults as evil villains or abject idiots. No one in the book is more lovably idiotic than Arthur Jelliby, an unambitious, conflict-avoidant politician who’d rather buy chocolates for his wife than do any real service to the people of London. But when he inadvertently discovers the identity of the kid-snatcher, he is motivated to take action and save the changeling children. Bachmann, who is now 18, writes as if he didn’t just read classic books. His prose is so elegantly witty, it’s as if he absorbed them and is writing by osmosis. It’s no wonder “The Peculiar” was blurbed by literary superstars Rick Riordan on its front cover and Christopher Paolini on its back. “The Peculiar” may be the book’s title, but it also applies to this unusually gifted young writer.

Heart’s story opens in October 1975 at Lucifer’s, a Calgary club that couldn’t exactly be called Carnegie Hall. The classic rock band’s core, Ann Wilson, who sang and played flute, and her younger sister, guitarist Nancy, had relocated from the States to Canada because Ann was living with the band’s manager Michael Fisher, a draft dodger. Nancy, meanwhile, entered into a relationship with Michael’s brother Roger Fisher, Heart’s guitarist. “The club treated us to dinner before the show. We were thankful for it, because we often ate brown rice cooked on a camp stove in our hotel room,” Ann writes in the pair’s new memoir. “But the food the club served had a suspicious odor. Actually, it tasted like Pine-Sol. I began to wonder if Lucifer’s was trying to poison us because we weren’t a disco band.” Heart was not long for Lucifer’s, maybe because of Ann’s comment on stage about the aromatic fare before performing “Crazy on You,” which was still many months away from becoming a hit, or because Roger splashed a bottle of Grand Marnier on the dressing room floor and lit it on fire in homage to Jimi Hendrix at Monterey. Decades later in 2008, Jake Brown’s “Heart in the Studio” offered valuable insight into Heart’s recordings. Brown’s book secured interviews with the Wilsons, along with former producers, so the paperback proved unusually informative. But Heart’s story beyond the music hasn’t been sufficiently detailed until the thor-

ough and entertaining “Kicking & Dreaming.” The joint autobiography traces the history of a pioneering ’70s rock group fronted by two sisters at a time when women didn’t commonly lead rock bands. The Wilson family story also dovetails with the culture of America at the end of World War II, through the Korean War and the Vietnam War, which ultimately determined the setting of Heart’s origin. The briskly paced book arrives in a busy year for the sisters, who, in addition to writing this memoir, compiled a Heart box set, recorded “Fanatic,” a solid new album of heavy rock due in October, and embarked on a tour that brings them to Hollywood’s Hard Rock Live on Nov. 4. The various projects combine to capture all facets of Heart. But the book, co-written with Seattle-based music biographer Charles Cross, is the most satisfying for its breadth and spirit. Using first-person voice, the Wilsons write movingly and with a sense of humor about their uprooted upbringing as daughters of a Marine who would become a school teacher. Ann dealt with issues concerning her weight from childhood onward (the two days she dreaded the most in school were Health Assessment Day and Valentine’s Day). Finding fame didn’t solve the problems. Sexism was rampant in the music industry. Heart came to be derisively known as “Led Zeppelin with (breasts).” Worse, Mushroom, the group’s defunct first label, placed an industry ad suggestively implying that the sisters were also lesbian lovers. The ultimate take-home points from the Wilsons’ memoir — familial love is plenty cool and believing in oneself is not particular to any one gender — is poignant. “The bond between Nancy and me grows deeper each year,” Ann writes.



Rowling’s new novel for adults Book embargoes lacks the magic of Harry Potter create buzz, leaks By Neely Tucker

“The Casual Vacancy” By J.K. Rowling (Little, Brown and Co., 503 pgs., $35) By Michiko Kakutani New York Times News Service

With J.K. Rowling’s new novel, “The Casual Vacancy,” we are firmly in Muggle-land — about as far from the enchanted world of Harry Potter as we can get. There is no magic in this book — in terms of wizarding or in terms of narrative sorcery. Instead, this novel for adults is filled with a variety of people like Harry’s aunt and uncle, Petunia and Vernon Dursley: self-absorbed, small-minded, snobbish and judgmental folks, whose stories neither engage nor transport us. It’s easy to understand why Rowling wanted to try something totally different after spending a decade and a half inventing and complicating the fantasy world that Harry and company inhabited, and one can only admire her gumption in facing up to the overwhelming expectations created by the global phenomenon that was Harry Potter. Unfortunately, the real-life world she has limned in these pages is so willfully banal, so depressingly cliched that “The Casual Vacancy” is not only disappointing — it’s dull. The novel — which takes place in the tiny, fictional English village of Pagford, and chronicles the political and personal fallout created by the sudden death of a member of the parish council named Barry Fairbrother — reads like an odd mash-up of a dark soap opera like “Peyton Place” with one of those very British Barbara Pym novels, depicting small-town, circumscribed lives. This is definitely not a book for children: suicide, rape, heroin addiction, beatings and thoughts of patricide percolate through its pages; there is a sex scene set in a cemetery, a grotesque description of a used condom (“glistening in the grass beside her feet, like the gossamer cocoon of some huge grub”) and alarm-

J.K. Rowling, author of the famed Harry Potter series, has released “The Casual Vacancy,” her first novel for adults.

ing scenes of violent domestic abuse. The novel contains moments of genuine drama and flashes here and there of humor, but it ends on such a disheartening note with two more abrupt, crudely stagemanaged deaths that the reader is left stumbling about with whatever is the opposite of the emotions evoked by the end of the “Harry Potter” series. Instead of an appreciation for the courage, perseverance, loyalty and sense of duty that people are capable of, we are left with a dismaying sense of human weakness, selfishness and gossipy stupidity. Instead of an exhilarating sense of the mythic possibilities of storytelling, we are left with a numbing understanding of the difficulty of turning a dozen or so people’s tales into a story with genuine emotional resonance. Many authors, of course, have created portraits of small-town life that capture the texture of ordinary lives with great depth of emotion. This, alas, is not the case here. Whereas the Harry Potter universe was as richly imagined and intricately detailed as Tolkien’s Middle Earth or L. Frank Baum’s Oz, Pagford seems oddly generic — a toy village, in which rooftops pop off to reveal adultery, marital discord and generational conflict among the tiny toy people.

It’s as though writing about the real world inhibited Rowling’s miraculously inventive imagination, and in depriving her of the tension between the mundane and the marvelous constrained her ability to create a two-, never mind threedimensional tale. As “The Casual Vacancy” trundles along and Rowling starts grappling with the consequences of her characters’ darker secrets, the narrative gathers momentum, but it takes a lot of pages to get there. In the meantime we are treated to tedious descriptions of the political squabbles exacerbated by Barry Fairbrother’s death and historical accounts of class tensions in insular Pagford — most notably a face-off between one faction that is opposed to a public housing project and a clinic for addicts, and another that has a sense of duty toward the less fortunate. It’s a subject with the potential to reverberate with an American audience — given the current battles between Republicans and Democrats over the role and size of government — but as laid out here it’s oddly bloodless and abstract. In some respects “The Casual Vacancy” is grappling with many of the same themes as the Harry Potter books: the losses and burdens of responsibility that come with adulthood, and the stubborn fact of mortality. One of the things

that made Harry’s story so affecting was Rowling’s ability to construct a parallel world enlivened by the supernatural, and yet instantly recognizable to us as a place where death and the precariousness of daily life cannot be avoided, a place where identity is as much a product of deliberate choice as it is of fate. What’s missing here is an emotional depth of field. It’s not just because the stakes in this novel are so much smaller. (In “Harry Potter,” the civil war was literally between good and evil; here, it is between petty, gossip-minded liberals and conservatives.) It’s that the characters in “The Casual Vacancy” feel so much less fully imagined than the ones in the Harry Potter epic. There is Gavin, Fairbrother’s best friend, who turns out to be in love with his widow; Fairbrother’s opponent, the extravagantly obese Howard Mollison, who considers himself the First Citizen of Pagford; Krystal Weedon, a skanky girl from the projects, and her junkie mother, Terri; Krystal’s new social worker, Kay Bawden, who has recently moved to Pagford with her teenage daughter; the disaffected adolescent boys, Fats and Andrew; and a variety of local gossips and pot-stirrers. Such characters are drawn in brisk, broad strokes, and with little of the complex ambiguity that fueled the later Harry Potter installments. In fact, there is a vacancy deep in the heart of this novel. We do not come away feeling that we know the back stories of the “Vacancy” characters in intimate detail the way we did with Harry and his friends and enemies, nor do we finish the novel with a visceral knowledge of how their pasts — and their families’ pasts — have informed their present lives. Of course, Rowling had seven volumes to map out the intricacies of the wizarding world in Harry Potter. The reader can only hope she doesn’t try to flesh out the Muggle world of Pagford in any further volumes, but instead moves on to something more compelling and deeply felt.

The Washington Post

The embargo on the J.K. Rowling novel “The Casual Vacancy,” reportedly one of the most draconian nondisclosure agreements in the history of publishing … did not quite work. Thursday was the release date for the first book for adults written by the empress of Hogwarts. Reviews were embargoed until 1 a.m. and book sales until 3 a.m. Since Rowling’s Harry Potter books have sold more than 450 million copies worldwide, the release of her new book — even though it is set in an unmagical British town called Pagford — is one of 2012’s largest publishing events. Thus, it is a test case for the common, if unloved, practice of forbidding booksellers from selling the book in advance of the embargo date, and forbidding media outlets from reviewing said tome before the date the publishing company decrees. The practice generally has several intents: to make sure books are in stores when readers hear about them; to retain the news revelations in nonfiction books; and to try to bottle up interest in big fiction titles, propelling them onto best-seller lists with an unusually high number of immediate sales. “For franchise authors, you want to drive it to No. 1 by having everyone buy it the first week of release,” said Elyse Cheney, a literary agent in New York. Rowling, who is nothing but a franchise author (she is the first in the world to earn more than $1 billion in book sales), added spice to this release with an unusually strict legal document that its pub-

lisher, Little, Brown, reportedly imposed on prospective reviewers. The Independent in London reported a clause that not only required signees to hold off on sales and reviews but also forbade them to even mention a contract. But — and this almost always happens — somebody got the book anyway. The Associated Press and the New York Daily News (and perhaps others) said they managed to get early copies of the book, and they published reviews Wednesday. AP reported it did not sign the contract but “purchased” the book; the Daily News said the novel was “obtained.” Because they alone had reviews, those two organizations set the tone for readers’ perception of the book. Other news organizations observed the embargo, running reviews Thursday. Just about nobody was happy. “I couldn’t even get an embargoed copy to review,” said Dan Kois, editor of the book section for the online magazine Slate, which is part of The Washington Post Co. “They wouldn’t send it to us. They had very clear levels to this campaign.” “I had to sign affidavits, more than I have to do for a (Bob) Woodward book,” said Mark LaFramboise, senior book buyer at Politics & Prose, a landmark Washington bookseller. As of late Wednesday, he said, the store had yet to receive the copies that were to go on sale Thursday morning. “It’s hard to break an embargo when you don’t have the book in your store.”

Memoir recalls childhood near nuclear facility “Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats” By Kristen Iversen (Crown Publishers, 400 pgs., $25) By Dwight Garner New York Times News Service

Like prison wardens and World Cup goalkeepers, book critics toss and turn over the ones that got away. The books they should have pounced upon, that is, but did not. One such book, people have been telling me, is “Full Body Burden: Growing Up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats,” by Kristen Iversen. Iversen’s book was issued back in June. I’m getting to it now because I couldn’t shoulder the guilt — my hard-to-please wife is among its importuning admirers — for another day. Iversen grew up in the 1960s and ’70s in the small town of Arvada, Colo., about 10 miles from Denver, where most of the fathers worked at one of two nearby factories. The first belonged to Coors, whose weak brew was derided as “Colorado Kool-Aid.” More mysterious, and thus prestigious, employment was found at Rocky Flats, a secret nuclear plant where employees made the plutonium warhead triggers for the U.S.’ Cold War nuclear arsenal. No one knew much about what went on there. The deformed animals, the cancers, the birth defects, the poisoned groundwater, the nuclear accidents that sent clouds of radiation over Denver: Word of these things would seep out slowly, like irradiated treacle. “Full Body Burden” is a simmering and sickening book that runs on two downwardsloping tracks. The first is the story of Iverson’s largely pastoral middle-class childhood. Her father was a small-time lawyer, the kind of guy whose clients paid with things like bearskin

rugs. Her mother was a housewife. Iversen and her three siblings had dogs and horses and ran unfettered in the rural outdoors. She is good on the family details: the hamburger casseroles, the liquorsoaked cherries from her father’s cocktails, the Polynesian-style wet bar he buys for the basement. From their backyard at night Rocky Flats glows in the distance. “The lights from Rocky Flats shine and twinkle on the dark silhouette of land almost as beautifully as the stars above,” Iversen writes, “but it’s a strange and peculiar light, a discomforting light, the lights of a city where no true city exists.” This book’s other track is serious investigative journalism. Iverson has delivered an intimate history of the environmental abuses at Rocky Flats, which opened in 1952, and the history of how those abuses have been systematically covered up. Commenting on a 1970 nonprofit report, a University of Colorado biochemist said the plutonium deposits in the soil outside Rocky Flats were “the highest ever measured near an urban area, including the city of Nagasaki.” An Energy Department survey, Iverson writes, found Rocky Flats to be “the most dangerous site in the United States.” She adds: “Two buildings at Rocky Flats make the list of the 10 most contaminated buildings in America.” One of them is No. 1. For a while you think these two narratives won’t quite come together. But they do, in powerful ways. Iversen watches people she knows get sick and die. She herself has swollen lymph nodes removed, a surgery so common near the Hanford, Wash., nuclear complex, she

learns, that the mark it leaves on one’s neck is referred to there as a “downwinder scar.” More impressively, “Full Body Burden” — the title refers to the amount of radioactive material at any time in a human body — becomes a potent examination of the dangers of secrecy. Her family falls apart because of the secrets it keeps. Her father’s alcoholism isn’t discussed, until he loses his job and finally becomes a cabdriver and a broken man. Her mother’s pills are never mentioned either. Iversen and her siblings drift apart. The author, before and during col-

lege, takes jobs in places like truck stops in order to get by. For a while she is a secretary inside Rocky Flats. Iversen is even more devastating about the secrecy that surrounded Rocky Flats, the vital health information that was suppressed over the decades. Part of this suppression was the community’s own denial. “Anyone who criticized Rocky Flats — or even spoke of it — was ridiculed or ignored,” she says. “Full Body Burden” ends on a particularly sinister note. Rocky Flats, after decommissioning and a cleanup effort, has been declared a wildlife refuge. The secrecy holds still.

Continued from F1 Testing in Russia is a net benefit to public health, pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into diagnostic work and doctor care that would not have been here otherwise. Much of the business swirls around lower-risk testing of generic replacements for brand-name drugs. Singapore, South Korea and China are among countries offering incentives or compelling companies to conduct clinical trials locally, John Lewis, the vice president for the Association of Clinical Research Organizations, a trade group, said in a telephone interview from Washington.

Jonathan Evison talks about hope and moving on

Ethical issues Ethically, if a clinical trial will most likely improve a patient’s health — for whatever reason, including because the patient lacks access to standard, already accepted care — a doctor should admit the patient to the trial. “We see a lot of governments encouraging testing for economic benefits, for health care benefits and for innovation benefits,” he said. Drug companies benefit, too, though the association does not endorse that motive. “Clinical trials should be viewed as experiments, as investigations, not as treatment,” Lewis said. A host of pharmaceutical companies operate in Russia, including Bayer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eli Lilly, Novartis, Novo Nordisk and Pfizer. The companies use the results of trials in Russia, as elsewhere, to help win approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Companies have turned to Russia in particular to test experimental psychiatric medicines, sometimes in the same mental health wards once used to inter Soviet dissidents. There is no indication that political detainees are used today in drug testing. But there have been strange results. In 2007, an FDA official wrote that the agency approved Eli Lilly’s top-selling antipsychotic drug Zyprexa for use by adolescents based on the results of a Russian test, even though U.S. trials showed the drug had no effect. Why tests differed in Russia and the United States was never explained. Doctors now routinely prescribe the drug for American adolescents.

Luring investors Companies are exploring creative ways to take advantage of Russia’s embrace of clinical testing as a means to attract biotech investment.

By Mary Ann Gwinn The Seattle Times

Olga Kravets / New York Times News Service

Folya Gonopolsky, left, and his wife, Margarita, take experimental medicine meant to improve stamina and mood, in a drug trial in Moscow earlier this month. Drug companies use the results of trials in Russia and elsewhere to help win approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In March, Domain Associates, a U.S. venture capital firm, agreed to jointly invest with the Russian government about $760 million in 20 biotechnology startup companies in the United States. The investment was intended to help Russia transfer drug development expertise to its own, nascent biotech industry. As an incentive for the U.S. drug companies it will invest in, the joint venture offered to help these start-ups conduct “advanced stage clinical trials in Russia of new pharmaceuticals,” according to a statement. In another example, VitaPortal, a Russian website analogous to WebMD, plans to profit by helping pharmaceutical companies find test subjects among visitors to the website who have searched for information about particular ailments.

Benefits of globalization For Russian doctors, the benefits of the globalization of clinical trials are clear from cases like that of Albert Chupikov, a 75-year-old cardiac patient enrolled in a trial in Moscow who was referred for an interview by one of his doctors. He said he joined because he could not find treatment elsewhere. “It was really, really hard to find a doctor,” he said. “We couldn’t find one.” So he joined a trial to take an experimental medicine, a choice that worked well for him. He credits the trial for keeping him alive. “I understand I won’t get any healthier,” Chupikov said. “So it’s important not to get worse. And it hasn’t gotten worse. So I’m thankful.” Supporters of the expanding business in Russia note it has room to grow. For every

1 million people in the United States, drug companies are conducting 46.8 clinical trials, according to the National Institutes of Health, which keeps a running tally. In the European Union the average is 11.5, and in Russia a mere 3.3. About 5 percent of global clinical trials are conducted in Russia, compared with about 50 percent in the United States. “America is saturated with clinical trials,” Svetlana Zavidova, the director of a trade group promoting the business in Russia, said in an interview.

Ups and downs The National Center for Preventive Medicine, a research hospital on a leafy back street in Moscow, is testing dozens of new drugs for U.S. and European companies this fall, with a range of promising uses and side effects. The weight loss medicine gets the pounds off, but patients often vomit or lose control of their bowels. A prostate medicine being tested here on young male volunteers can cause dizziness and spontaneous erections. Elderly patients are raving about the energyelevating effects of one experimental drug, said Dr. Svetlana Toppygina, a lead doctor on the studies. That energy-enhancing substance, from a class of drugs banned as doping in sports, was once tested on soldiers to raise stamina and mood. So far the trial is going well with geriatric cardiac patients, who all seem spry after taking their pills. Folya Gonopolsky, an 83year-old retired engineer who is taking these pills with his wife, Margarita, said, “They told me I would feel better and I do.” At a recent appointment, the

Believable 10-year-old narrator tells uplifting tale of family hit by terrorism “My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece,” By Annabel Pitcher (Little, Brown, 224 pgs., $17.99) By Jim Higgins Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

If a novel about a family wounded by terrorism can be called charming, Annabel Pitcher’s “My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece” is that novel. It delights and uplifts while still taking its characters’ traumas seriously, and in this horrible day of political blather never devolves into talking points. While formally targeted at a young-adult readership 12 and older, it could and should be read by many adults, too, for it compromises nothing in its storytelling. Its 10-year-old narrator, Jamie Matthews, may not understand everything he sees, and may delude himself occasionally, but he tells it like it is in an unflinching and gripping manner. Jamie was only 5 when a terrorist bomb killed one of his older twin sisters, Rose, who was 10. The explosion ripped apart his family, too. His mother has gone off with a man from the post-bombing family support group. His father descended into alcoholism and has become so consumed by his hatred of Muslims that he has moved Jamie and the surviving twin, Jasmine, from London to the Lake District, to be away from them all. So guess who Jamie sits next to in his first day at the dismal church-run school he now at-

tends? Sunya, a friendly Muslim girl, complete with hijab. The title refers to the urn containing some of Rose’s cremated remains. Despite many promises to do so, Jamie’s father can’t bring himself to scatter them. Instead, he talks to the urn, leaves a piece of cake next to it on birthdays, and uses it, figuratively, to browbeat his two surviving children when they get out of line. While Jamie’s sister died spectacularly, his dilemma surely echoes that of many younger children who’ve had an older sibling die. He barely remembers Rose and is perplexed by family pressure, especially from his father, to treat her like a saint. (Dad has labeled boxes with Rose’s stuff in them “Sacred.”) The Rose he does remember is a different girl: “In fact she was quite bad and according to Jas she was naughty at school, but no one seemed to remember that now that she is all dead and perfect.” “At my old school,” Jamie reports, “everyone called me ‘Girly’ ’cos I like art, ‘Nerd’ ’cos I’m clever and ‘Weirdo’ ’cos I find it hard to speak to people I don’t know.” But one day a year, everyone wanted to be his friend: the very public anniversary of Rose’s death. He welcomes a new school where no one will know about Rose, but the trauma of her death lingers. He can’t truthfully write the cheerful family

and holiday essays that teacher expects, especially when a holiday consists of dad drinking and snoring, and mom far away not responding to his letters. Three relationships sustain him in this world: the unconditional love of Roger, his cat; the bonds and secrets he shares with Jas, his sister; and the growing friendship with Sunya, rocky and troubled as it may be. Both Jas, who has dyed her hair pink and eats as little as possible, and Jamie are keeping secrets from their father. She has acquired a green-haired boyfriend; he has Sunya. Jamie has internalized Dad’s grief-stricken rage: “Muslims killed your sister. Muslims are terrorists.” He struggles with reconciling how he can like Sunya while staying respectful to his father. It’s a serious question, as she’s his only ally against a bully picking on both of them. In this and other segments, Pitcher provides a plausible view of a how a 10-yearold thinks and processes his revelations. Pitcher demonizes no character, except possibly the hapless teacher of Jamie’s classroom. Even Dad, the angry alcoholic, is given his due as the parent trying to keep the family together. She also avoids giving Jamie and his family a mythical closure of their grief. Instead, she crafts something more honest and more real — a way for the family to go on.

two received free electrocardiograms and consultations, then shuffled into a room to take the experimental medicine, laid out on a table in tiny plastic bags beside glasses of water. “Take the pills,” a doctor said. They did.

‘I take risks every day’ Inevitably, tests sometimes do go awry. Vera Belolipetskaya is the supervisor of the ward where patients are observed in earlystage trials. Here, a substance is tested on humans for the first time after animal trials. These studies are also done more cheaply and swiftly in Russia than the West, as volunteers, perhaps tapping Russians’ deep sense of fatalism, are surprisingly forthcoming. Once, an experimental antibiotic set off allergic reactions. Doctors stared in amazement at the students and migrant workers who volunteered to take it. “It was like something from the cartoon ‘Tom and Jerry,’ when a character gets sick,” Belolipetskaya said. “Red dots started appearing all over, right in front of my eyes. They appeared in just a few minutes. It was really shocking.” On a recent morning, Yevgeny Maksimov, a 32-year-old computer salesman, slouched in a chair and waited for his turn in these trials. On offer: $180 to take the experimental prostate drug. He would be enclosed in a ward under observation for 24 hours, then let go and asked to return two weeks later for a follow-up. “Why not? I take risks every day,” Maksimov said, noting that he recently flew on a Russian-made airplane.

Every writer would love to sell a lot of books. Bainbridge Island, Wash., author Jonathan Evison nudged into that rarefied territory when his 2011 novel, the Olympic Peninsula-based “West of Here,” earned the coveted “New York Times Best-Seller” designation. That being the case, why would he plan his next book around a story of two people dealing with unspeakable tragedy — a father who loses his children in a car accident, and a teenager with a terminal degenerative disease? Evison’s new book, “The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving” (Algonquin, $23.95), was inspired by such a personal loss. His sister died when she was 16 in an automobile accident. “Just watching what my parents went through, and what it can do to a family,” he says, “I’m fascinated with wondering how we can survive these irredeemable losses.” Evison did more than just wonder — he wrote a comic, tragic and compelling book about a bereaved father who takes the job of caregiver to a teenager with muscular dystrophy. “Revised Fundamentals” has been acclaimed by critics, and was recently optioned for a movie. In some ways Evison resembles his new book’s hero, Benjamin Benjamin. He has held numerous low-paying jobs. He plays on a slowpitch softball team like the one that gives Ben male friendship and support. A former musician, comedy writer and radio personality, he’s loquacious and funny, showcasing both traits in a recent phone interview: The book has been out for about a month now. What do you hear from readers? Readers are loving it. It’s been really gratifying to hear from parents in general, parents who have lost children, parents with children with muscular dystrophy. I didn’t expect the book to review so well, but critics loved it and readers love it. It does scare consumers off when you frame the book; thank goodness for word-of-mouth.

Q. A.

You actually took a Q. course called “Fundamentals of Caregiving,” right? I was a licensed careA. giver. I took that course — me and a dozen middleaged women. The character of Trev is based on a friend (and client) of mine named Case, who the book is dedicated to. When I started caregiving I was not on very firm ground. My first marriage had dissolved. I was working at an ice-cream stand in my 30s. I learned that when you don’t have anything to give, that’s when you really give, and then you get back so much more. “Revised Fundamentals” turns into a road trip in which Ben and Trev pick up a cast of oddball characters. How did that happen? Case and I did take some epic road trips to places like Crater Lake, but my characters dragged me kicking and screaming to the road. I had no choice but to follow them. You spent part of your childhood on Bainbridge, and you still live there. What is that like? I grew up in the Bay Area until 1976, then I pretty much went all the way through primary and high school on Bainbridge, though like anybody who grows up on an island, I ran the first chance I got. It’s wonderful, and (islanders) are so supportive. The jocks that used to stuff me into a locker ... are my best buddies now. I’ll never leave this place. What do you hope readers will get out of the book? We live with this idea that everything is indestructible, but we know that ... anything can happen. My goal was to awaken that sense in people again. I think we could all benefit from knowing more often how lucky we are. This book is about driving on in the face of something that makes you want to end your own life. You have to find hope. Hope is such a shape shifter. You tend to look in the rearview mirror for hope, but when it’s gone you have to look forward. You have to get in the van and keep driving on.

U.S. oil boom has an ugly underbelly • Bakken formation brings growing pains and crime to small, rural communities By Kevin G. Hall McClatchy Newspapers

Rick Havern, left, checks over some work Thursday while employee Kevin Daniels cuts a new cabinet at Havern Cabinetry and Design, the business Havern started after leaving San Diego and moving to Bend.

SIDNEY, Mont. — Politicians are quick to extol the virtues of domestic oil drilling while ignoring the tradeoffs. Here in this fast-developing Western oil patch, the gritty side of America’s new oil boom is on display with rising crime, a slain schoolteacher, rents that have tripled and public resources stretched thin. That’s just the half of it. Some area high schools are at historic low attendance levels, students dropping out to work the oilfields. Menial service jobs go unfilled despite high wages, and most everyone worries that the boom is transforming small-town values into something new and unpredictable. “It’s just happened so fast, and many small communities just didn’t have time to plan,” said Mike Coryell, executive director of the Area Economic Development Council of Miles

Kerry Finsaas and her husband, Darrell, have lived on their land for 34 years in northwestern North Dakota, near Trenton. The oil boom has brought them a view of a rail terminal and an oil well.

City, Mont., a town just south of the oil boom that struggles with spillover effects. “The impacts hit, but you don’t have the resources to attack it.” Deep below the surface of the Earth here are large quantities of crude oil trapped under rock that could make the United States less dependent on foreign oil if extracted. The Bakken formation, some 200,000 square miles of it, stretches across North Dakota, Montana, Native American reservations and parts of Canada’s Saskatchewan province. See Oil boom / G3 An oil-drilling boom in Montana and North Dakota has caused pumping jacks such as this one near Sidney, Mont., to be a common sight.

By Elon Glucklich • The Bulletin ick Havern needed a change from the gridlock of suburban San Diego, the miles on


miles of concrete and asphalt and the isolated feeling of big city life. Havern ran his own business in California installing cabinet fixtures. But his wife,

Janet, visited Bend in 2004, and came just short of giving her husband an ultimatum when she got back. Havern closed his business, took the 900-mile-plus drive north and started Havern Cabinetry and Design in Bend less than a year after Janet’s visit. The mountains, trails, lakes and entertainment that brought the Haverns to Central Oregon helped create five new jobs when Rick opened up shop here. Bend’s recreational opportunities and quality of life are two of its biggest recruiting tools for new companies, local business and tourism advocates said. The countless small businesses that have moved here because of them have created hundreds of local jobs. And interest in the city is picking up as the economy slowly recovers, officials said. Between five and 10 companies each month contact the tourism agency Visit Bend about moving their businesses here, requesting a business relocation packet that includes contact information for city business officials and information about what to do in town, said Doug La Placa, president and CEO of Visit Bend, the city’s tourism promotion agency.

Telemarketer’s charity tactics deceive donors By David Evans Bloomberg News

Ocean Equipment President Rob Walsh, left, and employee Paul Martin work at the company that Walsh moved to Bend in June from Irvine, Calif. Walsh says he’s less concerned about employee turnover here than in Irvine.

That’s a notable jump from the start of 2011, when he estimated that figure at between two and five businesses a month. The amenities that keep workers having fun around town are the same

that draw people here on vacations and getaways, La Placa said. That means tourism and job creation are linked here on a scale that rivals bigger destination cities like Seattle and Portland. See Why / G2



Service apps bring ease, but also tension • Questioning the tech world’s haves and have-nots By Jenna Wortham New York Times News Service

In San Francisco recently, I was running late for a meeting, desperate for a ride. But no buses or cabs were in sight. Then I remembered a service called Lyft. I pulled out my smartphone and quickly downloaded the application, which lets regular people act as chauffeurs for a fee. As instructed, I entered my location — then crossed my fingers and waited. Five anxious minutes later, a clean black Audi pulled up, with a chatty young man at the wheel. I jumped in and we made friendly small talk. I gave him advice for his future trip to New York, and he in-

vited me to a party that night in the city. We reached my destination, and I slid out of my seat, transferred $10 to the service through the Lyft app, and walked into my meeting with a smile. It was the start of a series of encounters with useful apps providing services in the nick of time. At first, these successes emboldened me. The next day, for example, I found myself in yet another bind. I realized that a booking error had left me without a hotel room in San Francisco for one night. Normally, such a travel glitch would have caused me to panic. But I calmly searched until I found an application called HotelTonight, which shows last-minute rooms available in a particular city. I found and reserved a place to stay, all while drinking iced coffee and sitting outside in a park. See Guilt / G5

Carol Patterson was waiting for a call from her doctor. When the phone rang on that afternoon in August 2011 at her home in Cortland, Ohio, it wasn’t a physician on the other end. A woman named Robin said she was representing the American Diabetes Association. Robin didn’t ask for money. She asked Patterson to stamp and mail preprinted fundraising letters to 15 neighbors. Both of Patterson’s parents and one grandmother had been diabetic, so she agreed to do it. The retired elementary school teacher guessed, based

on what she knew about charity fundraising, that about 70 to 80 percent of the money she brought in would be used for diabetes research. The truth was almost the exact opposite. The vast majority of funds Patterson, her neighbors and people like them throughout the country would raise — almost 80 percent —would never be made available to the Diabetes Association. Instead, that money collected from letters sent to neighbors would go to the company that employed Robin and an army of other paid telephone solicitors: InfoCision Management Corp. See Charity / G2

Charity Continued from G1 Just 22 percent of the funds the association raised in 2011 from the nationwide neighbor-to-neighbor program went to the charity, according to a report on its national fundraising that InfoCision filed with North Carolina regulators. “It’s like a betrayal,� Patterson said, sitting in her kitchen in June, after being shown copies of the North Carolina report and the contract the association signed with InfoCision. “I know I won’t donate again. It’s like they stabbed you in the back. It’s terribly wrong.� And it gets worse. Many of the biggest-name charities in the United States have signed similarly one-sided contracts with telemarketers during the past decade. The American Cancer Society, the largest health charity in the United States, enlisted InfoCision from 1999 to 2011 to raise money. In fiscal 2010, InfoCision gathered $5.3 million for the society. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers took part, but none of that money — not one penny — went to fund cancer research or help patients, according to the society’s filing with the Internal Revenue Service and the state of Maine. Every bit of it went to InfoCision, the filings say. The society actually lost money on the program that year, according to its filings. InfoCision got to keep 100 percent of the funds it raised, plus $113,006 in fees from the

Why Continued from G1 “As a lifestyle-based economy, tourism is that gateway industry for the migration of new residents and new jobs into the area,� La Placa said. A Montana economic research firm that surveyed 38 Bend businesses in 2010 found quality of life was a major factor for all but one of them opening here. Havern weathered some tough years when the housing market tanked in 2008. But he said work installing custom cabinets in homes, hotels and offices is up considerably this year. And when he’s not working, Havern spends time coaching cross-country skiing up on Mt. Bachelor. He plays the banjo in two bands — one a Dixieland jazz band, the other a Celtic rock band. “Every weekend there’s something different to do. I mean, how many festivals do we have?� Havern said. “We’ve just fallen in love with Bend.� The city’s status as a hub for lovers of bikes, brews, skis and snowboards has been well-documented in national publications. The New York Times ran two articles about the town’s brewing industry this year. The Huffington Post sent a travel writer to document Central Oregon’s outdoor activities. But Bend’s appeal reaches beyond the seasonal tourist. Its emphasis on fun and healthy living helps lure middle-aged people with business management experience, said Carolyn Eagan, the city’s business advocate. In many cases, these transplants are closer to retirement age than the start of their careers. But they often have the skills and the know-how to

“If that’s what they do systematically, then they’re obtaining money under false pretenses. I don’t just think it’s incredible. I’d be surprised if it isn’t criminal.� — James Cox, a professor at Duke University School of Law in Durham, N.C.

society, government filings show. Major charities compound the deception by encouraging telephone solicitors to lie. InfoCision scripts approved by both the Diabetes Association and the Cancer Society for what the telemarketer calls neighbor-toneighbor campaigns in 2010 instruct solicitors to say, when asked, that at least 70 percent of the money raised will be used for charitable purposes. Yet in contracts with InfoCision in that very same year, the association and society said they expected that the telemarketing firm would keep more than 50 percent of all the funds it collected. Altogether, more than 5 million Americans volunteered to raise money for these two groups — and other charities that hired InfoCision — from their neighbors since 2005 after being pitched by solicitors using charity-approved scripts, according to state regulatory filings. Charities should be held accountable for deceptive fundraising done in their name, says James Cox, a professor at the Duke University School of Law in Durham, N.C. “If that’s what they do systematically, then they’re obtaining money under false pretenses,� he said. “I

don’t just think it’s incredible. I’d be surprised if it isn’t criminal.� Naomi Levine, chair and executive director of the George H. Heyman Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising at New York University, says charities are knowingly being dishonest. “I’m amazed at that,� she said. “I didn’t know about it. It’s deceitful.� Levine, 89, was a nonprofit fundraiser for three decades, bringing in more than $2 billion for NYU. “Even for them to engage in a program like that is shocking to me,� she said. “And I’m in the field. So how can you expect donors to know that?� Richard Erb, vice president of membership and direct marketing at the Alexandria, Va.-based Diabetes Association, defends his group’s practices. “If we came into it and said, ‘Geez, I’m not going to make a dime on this,’ do you think we would have anyone who would give us money?�

Bachelor to the brewery scene is an economic development tool for the city. “You can ask a simple question,� Eagan said, “‘Is lifestyle part of your business plan?’ Because if it is, Bend is the place to be.� Around the same time Havern was moving, his brother-in-law, Rob Walsh, was considering a move of his own. Walsh had run Ocean Equipment in Irvine, Calif., since 1991. The company makes mounting devices that secure electronic navigation equipment to boats. It employs six people. Walsh discovered Bend in 2005, and moved his family here a year later. He brought Ocean Equipment from California to a 10,000-squarefoot building on Carmen Loop in June. With plenty of time outside of work to hit the mountain, bike trails or any of the nearby lakes, Walsh said his employees here are happier than those who worked for him in Irvine, and he’s less concerned about turnover. “The people who are here are very committed to living here,� he said. “Everybody’s got an easy commute. One guy rides his bike to work every day.� The types of job experience they bring are seemingly as diverse as the places they come from. Terry Fong moved to Bend

in April, and opened Natura Healthcare on O.B. Riley Road a month later. A Chicago native, Fong had worked as an occupational therapist there before going back to school to earn a degree in naturopathic medicine. She was visiting friends in Boise, Idaho, last year, and had planned on taking a road trip through California before heading home. “One of my friends told me, ‘You should check out Bend. You might really like it,’� Fong said. “Bend stole my heart. It’s a great community with a great feel for the outdoors.� She got serious about mountain biking after moving here, and hasn’t come close to riding all the trails around Bend yet, she said. Fong moved here with her boyfriend, Doug Bordan, who started Doug Bordan Physical Therapy in July. The mountains, rivers, trails and breweries speak for themselves when Economic Development for Central Oregon officials meet with companies considering a move to Bend from out of the area, said the agency’s CEO, Roger Lee. But the real work is to convince business owners they can operate from Bend as well as they can from larger cities. Especially in growing fields like health care and software technology, companies need quick access to freeways and airports to ship their products and attend out-of-town meetings.

InfoCision, which isn’t required to and doesn’t disclose revenue or profit, also does marketing for corporate clients such as Time Warner Cable Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. The company has a political operation, as well. It did fundraising for Citizens United, the conservative group best known as the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that allowed unlimited independent spending by corporations and unions on behalf of political candidates. From 2009 to 2011, InfoCision raised $14.7 million for Citizens United. The telemarketer was as stingy with Citizens United as it was with some of the charities: It kept $12.4 million, or 84 percent, of the money it raised for Citizens United, according to InfoCision filings with North Carolina. InfoCision has also worked for the National Republican Congressional Committee. The group paid InfoCision more than $115 million to raise money from 2003 to 2012, according to company filings with the Federal Election Commission. The filings don’t say how much InfoCision raised for the committee. InfoCision has barely been touched by legal trouble over its fundraising for charities. The Ohio Attorney General’s Office, after listening to recordings of phone calls by InfoCision solicitors, negotiated a settlement

That puts Bend at a bit of a disadvantage compared with some bigger cities vying to bring in new business, Lee said. But the quality of life is one of Bend’s strongest tools for bringing in young talent, who have training in emerging fields like software and computer science. “We don’t discount all the recreational opportunities, but we also try to make sure companies understand they can successfully operate a business here,� Lee said. “People want to know, ‘Can I get software engineers here?’� That hasn’t been a problem for Ron Fritz, co-founder of Tech Soft 3D. The company helps more than 350 businesses around the world create 3-D models of their products. The company was founded in 1996 in Berkeley, Calif., and has offices in England, France and Japan. But Fritz and another cofounder moved Tech Soft’s corporate headquarters to Bend in 2005. Why would a software company move its headquarters away from the Silicon Valley, with institutions like University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University pumping out top-caliber talent just minutes away? “We moved to Bend because this is where we wanted to live,� Fritz said. “We’ve actually found that the talent we

with the company, filed in civil court in April. Ohio said InfoCision’s employees had misled people by giving them false information about how much of their contributions would actually go to charities. While denying that it had done anything wrong, InfoCision promised not to mislead potential future donors. The company agreed to pay $75,000 to settle the case — an amount equal to less than one-10th of 1 percent of its revenue from charity fundraising from 2007 to 2010. Greg Donaldson, a senior vice president at the Atlanta-based Cancer Society, likens telemarketing campaigns that net the charity low percentages of donations to retailers pricing a product below cost to lure shoppers. “It’s certainly not inconsistent for organizations like ours to invest in some loss-leader strategies, to engage people in long-term meaningful relationships,� he said.

Oil boom Continued from G1 The area saw a short-lived boom in the 1980s, but technology back then allowed only vertical drilling. Breakthroughs in horizontal drilling, known as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” have unleashed a new boom that many expect to last decades. Signs of the boom abound. Natural gas is flared in the middle of sugar-beet farms and on prairie ranches that look like the set of old TV Westerns. Just across the North Dakota line, oil rigs dot a landscape where President Theodore Roosevelt lived out his final years, and where explorers Lewis and Clark famously rendezvoused at the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers. “We’re glad we have an area that’s booming, but it has totally ruined the quality of life around here,” said Kerry Finsaas, 60, walking her land, which abuts an expanded rail terminal near Trenton, N.D. “I’d say life as we knew it here is gone.” After 34 years on her land, Finsaas and her husband, Darrell, today look out the kitchen window at a natural gas flare a few hundred feet away. Crude oil is pumped into rail tank cars that stretch in front of their house almost as far as the eye can see. Nearby irrigation ditches adjacent to a new open-air disposal pond reek of sewage. “We don’t need a night light,” Finsaas said sarcastically.

A different way of life From Miles City, where Coryell struggles to keep pace with growth, it’s almost 50 miles to Sidney, Montana’s oil hub, and roughly 120 miles to Williston, N.D., the heart of the region’s oil boom. Rents have risen so high in both places that workers now commute there from, and displaced families migrate to, Miles City. Coryell’s office is helping to secure funding for a new jail. That’s not the traditional work of economic development officials, but Miles City, like other area small towns, is burdened by rising crime. Parts of its current jail date to 1904. “We need them to find oil in Custer County, that’s what we need,” said Coryell, referring to the revenues such a strike would bring to towns in the region. “I don’t think people understand the impacts on a rural area, the small towns that are used to having a quiet lifestyle.” These impacts include sugarbeet farmers on tractors competing for space on tight two-lane highways with rumbling rigs that rush sand, water and heavy machinery to drill sites. Drunken driving arrests are way up, and police report seizures of uncommon illicit drugs. “Heroin is starting to come back. The drug activity has really changed in this region,” said Doug Colombik, the Miles City police chief. Cops on the beat feel a difference, too. “The level of aggression that we’re met with when we’re responding (to a call) has really increased,” Mark Kraft, 33, a night officer for the Sidney Police Department, said during ride-along with a McClatchy reporter. “It makes our job a little more dangerous than it was a couple of years ago.” The wake-up call came in early January, when schoolteacher Sherry Arnold went for a morning jog in Sidney and never returned. Her remains were found months later across the state line near Williston. Police said the 43-year-old cancer survivor was kidnapped and killed. Two Colorado men who came to the area in search of work in the oilfields are charged in her death. Arnold’s slaying brought soul-searching over the costs of a transformative oil boom. Almost to a person, everyone interviewed in the region complained they no longer recognize people in the grocery store, and that they now must lock their doors. A large town here is home to fewer than 6,000 people, and leaving doors unlocked and keys in the car is the very definition of small-town life. “I think whenever you don’t know people, you become suspicious of them. You just have to remember that not all strangers are bad,” said Maj. Robert Burnison, Sidney’s assistant police chief. “I tell people that, and to be aware of their surroundings. Just be cautious. You don’t have to be afraid.”

Jerry Jimison, mayor of Glenview, Mont., stands in front of a new construction project. The town has seen growth explode with the nearby oil boom, and locals fear it’s all happening too fast. Veteran police office Mark Kraft says the boom has brought an increase in DUI and drug arrests as well as more aggression toward officers. He is shown in Sidney, Mont.

Brian Merwin, 31, co-owner of the Rib & Chop House in Miles City, Mont., says he’s had to raise wages to compete with oil-boom salaries. “We’ve had to almost double what we’re paying. If you don’t pay them a larger amount, they’ll go pick up a shovel and make $50,000 a year.”

Burnison recently counted 17 out-of-state license plates in the local grocer’s parking lot. This flood of new American workers, dubbed “patch rats” by locals, is also clogging up the criminal justice system in eastern Montana, he and others said. “We average about a DUI a day now,” said Judge Gregory Mohr, a city judge in Sidney, whose office is strained by mounting demands and no comparable increase in revenues. “All of the oil money goes west (to the state capital), but we need it here.” Montana has a “three strikes” policy, meaning a fourth drunken driving arrest is treated as a felony charge and conviction results in a 13month prison sentence. Many of the arrested have strikes in other states, and Montana’s policy counts them. “We’re up in felonies all over the place here. What we’re seeing is a lot of out-of-state (resident) felonies. These are extraordinarily taxing to our system,” said Sheila Newman, the deputy public defender in Miles City, who now spends much of her time researching the laws of other states. “I’d like to have another full-time employee, but the legislature says the public defender system is maxed out.” While most oil workers have clean records, some arrive with outstanding arrest warrants. And others are criminals taking advantage of laws that allow extradition only from contiguous states. Authorities in Montana get stuck with criminals who have arrest warrants but cannot be extradited. It all explains concern that eastern Montana will inevitably resemble Williston, which looks like a chaotic oilfield staging center, and earlier this year was named by the Census Bureau as the fastest-growing micro area of the nation between April 2010 and July 2011. Roadside businesses tied to the industry dot both sides of the highway for seven miles out of town. Williston is home to exploding crime, and police think that the Hells Angels motorcycle gang now distributes drugs in the region. “It is not if it comes here, but when,” said Al Homme, a city judge in Miles City, who predicts a 15-year boom accompanied by

many of Williston’s problems. Oil workers are young men paid handsome sums. There’s little to do in small rural towns with those sums but frivol it away on alcohol and electronic casinos. Some workers dispose of their earnings at Whispers, one of Williston’s two seedy strip bars. There, young men slug down liquor, drop loud F-bombs and jostle over billiards. Some disappear with dancers into rooms guarded by burly, tattooed, pierced men who work in the club. Perhaps the men are getting a lap dance, perhaps it’s something more. Locals claim prostitutes from Las Vegas come out for the weekend and go home with $5,000 in earnings. At Whispers, there seem to be two distinct kinds of women pole dancing, hardlooking older women, presumably locals, and tall, slender young women who resemble showgirls.

‘You can’t live here’ For many workers coming to the Bakken region, they quickly find they can’t afford to live here. “The city is being terribly saturated with individuals looking for work,” said Cal Westerhof, a missionary from Dallas whose Fellowship Baptist Church in Sidney offers free showers, food donations and low-cost rentals for displaced workers. Rents have more than doubled all over the oil region. People rent out basements, rooms and even their front yards for trailers. Makeshift RV parks have cropped up everywhere and charge $400 a week or more. That’s about what an apartment rented for monthly before the boom began. “Even with a good-paying job, how do you afford to pay the rent? Groceries have gone horribly high. Living on a daily basis here is high,” said Candy Markwald, who helps run the Richland County Food Bank in Sidney. For Brant Powell, 23, rent isn’t an option. He came up from Bozeman earlier this year and landed a job driving a truck that hauls sand used in the oil drilling process. He’s forced to live in his truck, unable to afford the high rent. “It sucks,” he said with a laugh when asked what it’s

like to live out of a truck cab. In between attempts to woo a barmaid at the Cattle-Ac, known to Sidney police for its oil-worker brawls, Powell scarfed down dinner and admitted that he’s had about enough of the oil patch. “It’s just rough. You don’t know anybody here; you don’t feel at home,” he said. “It’s dirty. But people do a lot for money.” Apartments and condos are under rush construction on the outskirts of Sidney, but they’ll rent for $2,000 a month and upward, a price tag for supervisors and managers. It means workers like Powell coming to the oil patch are likely to keep improvising. “Holy smokes, if you want it bad enough, you’ll find a ranch, a basement, a backyard,” said Wally Jungels, a roofer from Miles City whose company paid for three workers to share a small trailer next to Sidney’s Pizza Hut. “If you’re not making $15 an hour, you can’t live here.” It’s so bad that an area manager for a major national fast-food chain confides he’s forced to bring in foreigners on student visas just to man the cash registers. “I advertised at $10 an hour and got no response,” said the manager, who demanded anonymity because his wellknown chain doesn’t want to broadcast that it brings in college kids on student visas for three-month stints. September marks the start of his staffing problems. Summer has ended north of the equator, and the Russian, Ukrainian and Macedonian

students have returned to their universities. It won’t be until December that summer vacation begins south of the equator. At that point, the manager can bring in students from Brazil, Peru and elsewhere. With so few rental options, the fast-food chain bought three trailers to house its visiting guest workers. Kim Trangmoe, executive director of the Glendive Chamber of Commerce, points to a 10-acre parcel of land that just a few years ago sold for $10,000. It’s up for sale again, listed at over $300,000. “It really hurts our essential workers — firefighters, teachers and the like. Their paychecks are not going up with the rent,” said Trangmoe, noting that the local sheriff had to purchase a home for use as temporary living quarters for patrol officers. “I think our biggest struggle is housing for renters.” The town’s mayor agrees. “We’re seeing landlords increasing rent to the point that a lot of local people who’ve lived here all their lives are feeling the pinch,” said Jerry Jimison, adding that new construction hasn’t kept pace. “We’ve never had homeless people in Glendive. There are some of them living in tents, sleeping in parks. It’s not hundreds and hundreds, but there are more stragglers showing up with no place to live.”

Soaring land prices inhibit growth and expansion. Owners of the Rib & Chop House in Miles City, which attracts hungry oilmen, have been frustrated in their attempts to open in nearby towns. “Everything is so incredibly expensive; there is nothing available,” said Brian Merwin, 31, general manager and coowner, who added that he’s had to sharply raise wages in the kitchen. “We’ve had to almost double what we’re paying. If you don’t pay them a larger amount, they’ll go pick up a shovel and make $50,000 a year.” Still, Merwin’s business has exceeded his wildest dreams. Profits have surpassed the prior year by more than 30 percent in each of the past three years. He’s more than doubled the $1.5 million in his original business plan for the restaurant. As the oil boom continues, he reasons, there’ll be demand for more steakhouses. “If a crew gets off, they’ll come in and spend a whole lot of money,” Merwin said. “They want to buy a $60 steak and eat well after seven days on.”

Ginseng poachers take to the woods as prices soar By Todd Richmond The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. — They slink through the woods in camouflage and face paint, armed with tire irons, screwdrivers and hoes, seeking a plant that looks like a cross between a Virginia creeper and poison ivy. They’re the new breed of ginseng diggers, a rough and tumble lot looking to parlay rising Asian demand for the increasingly rare plant’s roots into a fast buck. Amid a sluggish economy, police say, more diggers are pushing into the backcountry from the upper Mississippi River to the Smoky Mountains in search of wild ginseng, eschewing harvest permits, ripping up even the smallest plants and ignoring property lines. Their slash-and-burn tactics have left property owners enraged and biologists worried about the slow-growing plant’s long-term survival. In Ohio prosecutors charged one landowner with gunning down a man he believed was stealing ginseng. “We’re not finding big, healthy populations. It was there, and a lot of it has been taken,” said Nora Murdock, an ecologist with the National Park Service who moni-

Guilt Continued from G1 What couldn’t I do, what problems couldn’t be solved, with the tap of an app? A few hours later, I realized that the device I’d brought to supply my laptop with an Internet connection was on the fritz. I needed it for a press event starting bright and early the next day, but I also had to get to an important dinner. But, again, I didn’t have a meltdown. I simply pulled out my phone and found an application called Exec. It quickly matched me with a human assistant who was willing to track down and deliver a replacement, so long as I paid him $25 an hour, which I was quite willing to do. But a few hours later, the first signs of trouble began. While sitting at the dinner, receiving texts and questions from the patient young man who was buying my mobile hot spot at Best Buy, I started to feel guilty. Was I taking advantage of him? Was I paying him enough? Was my time worth more than his? No doubt these services are helpful; in all three instances, they were lifesavers. This emerging on-demand economy, made up of a wave of mobile applications and services, is certainly convenient. It is intended to deliver almost anything you need or want with the flick of a finger, if you have a smartphone and the cash to spare. A game changer? Definitely. But are there murkier issues, about the haves and have-nots in a tech world, lurking just below the surface? I certainly felt uneasy about how simple it was to command an army of mobile helpers via my phone. My discomfort, it turns out, is not uncommon, according to Justin Kan, the founder of Exec, an online service that provides helpers for a variety

tors plant populations in four parks across the southeastern U.S. “It’s like taking bricks out of a building. You might not feel the first brick ... but sooner or later you’re going to pull out too many.” Ginseng, a long-stemmed plant with five leaves and distinctive red berries, long has been coveted in many Asian cultures because the plant’s gnarly, multipronged root is believed to have medicinal properties that help improve everything from memory to erectile dysfunction. And the wild roots are believed to be more potent than cultivated roots. The plant takes years to mature, and it has been harvested to the edge of extinction in China. Ginseng buyers have turned to North America, where the plant can be found from northeastern Canada through the eastern U.S. Conscious of the harvesting pressure, the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora imposed restrictions on exports in 1975. Under those terms, states certify ginseng has been harvested legally and exporters must obtain a federal permit. Most states have restricted ginseng harvest to a few months in

the fall and require diggers to obtain permits during that period. It’s illegal to harvest ginseng from any national park and most national forests in the southeast. The price of wild ginseng roots has climbed in the last decade. Now domestic buyers pay $500 to $600 per pound compared with about $50 per pound of cultivated roots. Law enforcement officials say the prices have pushed people looking for quick money into the woods. “It’s lucrative to spend a day in the woods and walk out with $500 of ginseng in a bag when you don’t have a job,” said Wisconsin conservation warden Ed McCann. “Every one of these plants is like looking at a $5 or $10 bill.” Clad at times in camouflage, face masks and face paint to blend in, poachers trod through the underbrush with makeshift tools such as tire irons and screwdrivers looking for ginseng, police said. They don’t have any qualms about digging up immature roots; they want to get at the plants before other poachers or before the state’s harvest season begins. But that ensures the plants won’t reproduce and feeds a cycle of dwindling populations and

rising prices. And poachers know how to get around the conservation regulations. They’ll dig ginseng out of season to get a jump on competitors and take it to dealers when the season opens or purchase permits after the fact. In other cases dealers just look the other way, said John Welke, a Wisconsin conservation warden. It’s difficult to get a clear picture of the extent of poaching in the U.S. — violation statistics are spread across layers of state and federal jurisdictions, but law enforcement officials and biologists across the eastern half of the country told The Associated Press they believe it’s on the rise. In Wisconsin, the leading U.S. producer of commercially grown ginseng, wildlife officials say violations such as

of tasks. “I don’t think it comes that naturally to people at first,” Kan said. “There is friction. But when they see other people using it, they will find ways to use it and that it is OK.” Rachel Botsman, one of the authors of “What’s Mine Is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption,” notes that “it can be quite uncomfortable asking a stranger to do something for you, even if you are paying them.” Yet, she says, many people have overcome this aversion. She cited Airbnb, a service that lets people rent their homes to travelers, for rates comparable to a hostel or hotel, with the company taking a slice of the fee. At first, letting a stranger crash in your spare bedroom may seem hard to imagine — yet, many have found that making extra cash from their homes is appealing enough to join in. And enough travelers have enjoyed the authenticity of staying in someone else’s home to have made the service quite popular. Since 2008, when Airbnb was introduced, it has helped people book 10 million nights in more than 26,000 cities around the globe. Such services are useful enough that at least some of them will thrive, Botsman said. “The economics are bigger than the individual,” she said. “This is changing the way things get done. There are massive socioeconomic implications for the unemployed and underemployed.” She gave the example of a skilled chef who hadn’t been able to secure a culinary job. Through one of these apps, the chef could take quick requests for a caterer or a personal cook, thus getting a foot in the door. In addition, small businesses, she said, could scale back on staff or even office space by

using on-demand services like Exec and TaskRabbit, which also help find people to perform errands on the spot. “There has always been a demand for people who will do odd jobs,” said Kartik Hosanagar, a professor of online commerce at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. “There probably always was a good amount of supply as well, although that supply has increased dramatically since the 2008 recession. However, there wasn’t an efficient way to match supply and demand previously.” The bigger question is whether these companies can grow beyond their existing markets. Airbnb is in 26,000

cities worldwide, but Lyft and Exec are relatively young companies and currently operate only in San Francisco. “There’s a fundamental issue of intimacy,” said Susan Etlinger, an analyst at the Altimeter Group, who advises companies on how best to use the Web in their business. “Will people feel safe and comfortable on a larger scale? They’ll have to do more of what Airbnb has done, spread the word about how well regulated and managed the service is. But even then, there’s always tension between the person who is the employer and the person who is the employee that could turn users off.” For consumers, it may be a

West Virginia University via The Associated Press

A wild ginseng plant with berries. A new breed of ginseng diggers looking for a quick buck has taken things to a new level, eschewing harvesting permits and ripping up immature ginseng before it can produce seeds, jeopardizing the plant’s long-term future.

Carrie Antlfinger The Associated Press

harvesting wild ginseng without a permit or harvesting out of season tripled from 12 in 2007 to 36 last year. Ohio wildlife authorities have made 100 arrests between 2008 and last year for various ginseng violations ranging from digging without permission to digging or buying out of season. A team of West Virginia University researchers counted 30 ginseng populations across New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Indiana, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia between 1998 and 2009. The team reported that of the 368 plants they discovered had been harvested, only five were

taken legally. “It’s very difficult to catch a poacher,” said U.S. Forest Service botanist Gary Kauffman. “You could put everything in a backpack and your hands are clean, nobody really knows what you’re doing.” A grand jury in southeastern Ohio charged 78-year-old Joseph Kutter of New Paris with killing a man whom Kutter claimed had trespassed onto his property to poach ginseng. According to court documents, Kutter shot Bobby Jo Grubbs with an assault rifle in May and hid his body in a mulch pile. Kutter’s attorneys didn’t return messages seeking comment.

matter of getting accustomed to the new services, and deciding how useful they are and whether they are worth the cost. I found myself weighing my discomfort against the convenience of being able to vastly increase the number of things I could do in a short time, and all for a relatively small amount of money. On the final night on that San Francisco trip, for example, I faced yet another crunch. I needed to be in three

places at once — buying a new iPhone charger, picking out a birthday present for a friend and meeting friends from college for a drink. I stared at my phone, debating whether to use a mobile app to enlist an assistant for help with the shopping errands. This time, at least, I decided that I didn’t need the help. I’d deal with the errands at another time. So I put down my phone and headed straight to the bar.

Mazda’s CX-5 retains at least Antifreeze smell some fun while paring fuel use could indicate a leak By Brad Bergholdt

McClatchy-Tribune News Service

I have a 1998 Chevy Q: S-10, and I am getting the smell of antifreeze

By Barry Spyker The Miami Herald

My neighbors, a nice young couple who once enjoyed their Mazda CX-7, were understandably curious when they spotted the all-new CX-5 at my place. “We read about that … but it looked smaller,” she said, hoisting her 1-yearold as she REVIEW suggested her reasoning for buying another model. So I had the difficult and unfortunate task of explaining that, yes, it is shorter by 5 inches and has a wheelbase two inches shorter, too — but passenger space is practically the same, backseat legroom is 3 inches better, and cargo capacity is actually greater at 64.8 cubic feet with the rear seats down. “I can’t tell you exactly how they did that,” I said. “Gee, we liked our CX-7,” she said, with a hint of remorse in her voice that she didn’t do her homework first. Truth is, the CX-7 brought Mazda limited success so it decided to get serious in the hottest SUV segment out there. The CX-5 is Mazda’s first real entry into the compact SUV arena — if you put aside the old Tribute, which was just a rebadged Ford Escape. And roominess is just part of the attraction of the CX-5: It is at or near the top in fuel economy, and it has a good dose of that “zoom-zoom” magic. Yeah, it’s fun to drive. CX-5 rides on a new unibody, and it looks smoother and sleeker than the 7. The front end has a new grille that is more refined looking than the 7, which likely is on its way out after this year. Under the hood, for all CX5s, is Mazda’s new SkyActiv 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which is surprisingly spunky. It gets 150 hp and 155 foot-pounds of torque and propels the CX to 60 mph in about 9.5 seconds. OK, zoom-zoom it isn’t, but it’s more than adequate for most folks’ needs and is still enough for some fun. All-wheel-drive is available on all trim levels, but you must get the six-speed automatic transmission. The front-wheel-drive ver-

coming from the air vents. It seems to be stronger when the heat is on. There is no antifreeze leaking anywhere in the engine or under the dash. The heater core hoses are tight, and they are both hot after warming up the engine. I just recently bought the truck and a short time after that the A/C quit working. I don’t know if that would cause the smell to occur. I would hate to replace the heater core if I am not sure that that is the problem. Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Your thoughts about the odor coming from the heater core are well-founded as this is the only area within the truck cab where antifreeze exists. It’s possible also, but less likely, that leaking coolant odors are coming in with the ventilation air from an under-hood leak. Typically, when a heater core begins to leak, one may notice fogging of the windshield when using the defroster; dampslimy carpet beneath the right/center of the instrument panel; and a citruslike odor, similar to what you’ve described. There would also be a loss of engine coolant, but the rate may be less than you’d expect — it only takes a pint or so of leakage to create the above symptoms — and this might not be immediately evident looking at the coolant overflow bottle level. A leak from under the hood should be easy to spot on the ground. Your heater core is a cigar box-sized mini-radiator that transfers engine heat to the passenger compartment via circulating engine coolant. This part resides deep within the heater/ventilation system, and most aren’t very


Mazada / MCT

Mazda’s SkyActiv engine adds fuel economy to the 2013 CX-5, but at the expense of engine power: The all-wheel-drive model takes 9.5 seconds to reach 60 mph, according to Motor Trend.

2013 MAZDA CX-5 Base price: $20,695 As tested: $27,045 Type: Compact SUV Engine: Mazda’s new SkyActiv 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine. Allwheel-drive is available on all trim levels, but you must get the six-speed automatic transmission. The front-wheel-drive version offers the option of either the automatic or a six-speed manual. Mileage: 26 mpg city, 33 on the highway with the front-wheeldrive, 25 city and 30 highway with the all-wheel-drive

sion offers the option of either the automatic or a six-speed manual. Riding on 19-inch wheels, CX-5 is nimble enough on corners and curves; it has a confident, solid feel around town and on the highway. And the ride is quiet, too, with little noticeable road and wind noise. A new electrically assisted power steering system has a creamy-smooth feel to it and has good reflexes. Best of all, Mazda claims best-in-class mileage figures: 26 mpg city, 33 on the highway with the front-wheel-drive, 25 city and 30 highway with the all-wheel-drive. Inside, Mazda managed to squeeze every square inch of space out of this scaled-down CX. Even more legroom than the 7, and nearly 35 cubic feet

in back for the bags or dogs. A neat rear-seat folding system is simple to use and creates a nearly flat floor. Front bucket seats have been redesigned and are comfortable and supportive. Rear seats are less contoured and less comfy. As impressive as the roominess is the quality inside. Panels are clean and straight, touch surfaces feel soft and look rich. Gauges are sharp with black background and white numerals. And all controls are user-friendly. The upgraded Grand Touring gets a ton of goodies, like leather seats with contrast stitching, moon roof, ninespeaker Bose sound and a blind-spot monitor. Add a tech package and you get navigation (decent, but there are quicker, better sys-

tems out there), xenon lights and keyless entry. All CX-5s get traction and stability control, antilock brakes, side air bags up front and full-length side-curtain bags. And it gets top crash-test ratings on front and side impact from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The CX-5 comes in three trims. The base Sport is well equipped with alloy wheels, full power and keyless entry, sound system with USB/USB interface. An optional Bluetooth audio package offers upgraded sound system and color monitor. Move up to the Touring and Mazda adds upgraded cloth interior, six-way power driver seat and blind-spot warning system. The top-line Grand Touring is enhanced with bigger, 19-inch alloy wheels, auto headlamps and wipers, 8-way power driver seat and sweet nine-speaker Bose sound. So don’t sell this CX-5 short — even if it is shorter than the outgoing CX-7. And, OK, it may not be the zoom-zoomiest coming from Mazda — it’s no Miata or MazdaSpeed3. But it is a nimble little SUV that will reward you at the gas pump.

Car models: here yesterday, gone tomorrow By Nick Kurczewski New York Times News Service

The school year may have just begun, but the automotive Class of 2013 is already well settled at dealerships around the nation. Each model year brings new models to fill showroom spaces vacated by cars and trucks that have been discontinued. For 2013, more than a dozen nameplates will not be returning. Some vehicles are not being replaced, like the MercedesBenz R-Class wagon and the electric Tesla Roadster. Others, like the Dodge Caliber, will be indirectly replaced by a different vehicle in the same segment. Here are some of the most notable vehicles that are disappearing after the 2012 model year:

Aston Martin DBS Aston’s top model — save for the ultraexotic, sold-out One-77 — is replaced by the 565-horsepower Vanquish coupe and convertible. Like James Bond bidding farewell with a sly wink and a raised martini, the DBS exits in style.

Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon Pickup sales are big business, but midsize models like these have struggled to find a following. The Colorado and Canyon will sit out the current model year, at least until more fuel-efficient and aerodynamic versions arrive, perhaps as 2014 models.

Dodge Caliber


Only operators of daily rental fleets might bemoan the loss of the cut-rate Caliber. Most consumers probably didn’t notice that the boxy hatchback was still around, especially because the vastly better Dart sedan replaced it in the Dodge lineup.

In 2003, Daimler dusted off this long-dormant brand to take on Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The interiors of the Maybach 57 and 62 sedans had all the trappings of a private jet. Unfortunately, the exterior styling had more in common with a Mercedes SClass from two generations ago.

Hyundai Veracruz This midsize crossover has been pushed out of Hyundai’s lineup in favor of the new Santa Fe, which now offers an optional long-wheelbase seven-passenger version.

Jeep Liberty The Liberty SUV remains ruggedly handsome, so it’s too bad its clunky four-speed automatic and wheezy 3.7-liter V-6 amount to the mechanical equivalent of a pack-a-day smoking habit.

Kia Sedona Kia’s stylish hip-hop hamsters would steer clear of the Sedona, the South Korean automaker’s bland entry in the minivan market. A more cuttingedge replacement, based on the KV7 design study, is planned for the 2014 model year.

Lexus HS250h The Lexus HS250h sedan should have provided a steppingstone for Prius owners to move up to Toyota’s luxury division. But the appeal of this plush eco-sedan was limited by a price significantly higher than the Prius’, along with lower fuel economy.

pleasant to renew, as quite a bit of instrument panel disassembly is often required. Most heater cores are made of thin-wall aluminum, with a large network of finned passages that provide maximum surface area for heat transfer. Over time, accelerated by deferred cooling system maintenance, internal corrosion will find a weak spot, and pressurized coolant will begin to seep into the surrounding housing, and eventually to the carpet beneath. I have a hunch your heater core may have a tiny leak, and most of the liquid may be vaporizing, causing the odor, or hasn’t yet reached a seam of the heater housing. To be sure, you may need to drill a small hole in the lowest part of the plastic housing. Slide a piece of hose or tubing on the drill bit so it can’t bore more than one-quarter-inch deep — you don’t want to cause new problems. Then, after shutting off the fully warmed-up engine and waiting perhaps 15 minutes, check for signs of coolant leakage at the test location. Even one drop of coolant means trouble. You could buy some time by adding a single dose of Bar’s Leaks or AlumAseal, which should close up a small leak, at least for a while. Your S-10 heater core is about average in replacement difficulty, taking three to six hours depending on skill level, tools available, and fortitude. It’s within bounds for a practiced home mechanic armed with good service information. I can’t fathom how the air conditioning working or not would be a factor regarding this odor. Refrigerant is odorless, should leakage occur. It’s likely a coincidence the A/C has recently quit. — Bergholdt teaches automotive technology. Email questions to

Mazda CX-7 With demand for its nimble and attractive CX-5 crossover exceeding supply, Mazda simply doesn’t need the five-passenger CX-7 anymore. The CX9, which provides seating for up to seven, remains in the lineup, however.

Mercedes-Benz R-Class With a station wagon body that looked rather hearselike, the R-Class aimed for a market niche that proved not to exist. The performance-oriented R63 AMG model could become a cult classic, however.

Mitsubishi Galant and Eclipse Mitsubishi is streamlining its lineup in what could be a make-or-break moment for the automaker in the United States. With the Galant gone, the brand lacks a mainstream midsize sedan. And the Eclipse sporty coupe has reached the end of the line after a tumultuous history in which it veered from a pocket rocket to an overstyled economy car.

P Dean Winters

Q: Who is the guy who plays “Mayhem” in the Allstate commercials? —E. M., Silver Spring, Md.

A: Actor Dean Winters,

who has appeared on Oz, Rescue Me, and 30 Rock, stars as the destructive spokesman. “I’ve always had a bit of a mayhem quality to me, so I think it was good casting!” says Winters, 48. Although he initially said no to the gig, he now thinks taking on the popular role “could be the smartest decision I’ve made in my life.”


Emma Thompson The Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter, 53, celebrates the 110th anniversary of Peter Rabbit by writing a brand-new book, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, with illustrations by Eleanor Taylor.

2010, but Ferrera, 28, says the role still resonates with her. “I loved the character from day one,” she says. “It was hard to say goodbye.” She costars with Jake Gyllenhaal in the cop drama End of Watch (out now), and she traveled to India for the two-part PBS documentary Half the Sky (Oct. 1–2), which sheds light on global women’s issues.

dreamt of stepping into Beatrix Potter’s footsteps unless I was asked the way I was asked—by Mr. Rabbit himself. I received a letter from Peter Rabbit [via the publisher] asking me to write him another adventure because he heard I was quite mischievous! Were you a fan of the series growing up? Absolutely. They were the first books that were read to me, and I read them to my daughter. I read all the time. My idea of heaven is being on a boat with a big box of books.

A: The actor, who por-

trays a younger version of Willis’s character in the sci-fi film, went through

three hours of makeup and prosthetics every morning to alter his nose, lips, eyebrows, and ears. He also adopted a lot of Willis’s mannerisms to bring the role to life. “We wanted to keep it subtle,” says GordonLevitt, 31. “Just enough without being precise.”

What’s the tougher profession, writing or acting? P America Ferrera

Q: I still miss America Ferrera in Ugly Betty. When can fans expect to see her on TV again?

Writing is a much harder discipline. It’s terribly frustrating and makes me weep, but once you start getting it right, it’s hugely pleasurable. Send questions to Walter Scott at personality or to P.O. Box 5001, Grand Central Station, New York, N.Y. 10163-5001.

before flu season hits. Immunizations for most stages of life, now available for ages 3 and up.

Focus on the Flu: A flu shot is the number one way to protect yourself and your community against this disease that puts 200,000 people in the hospital every year. Even healthy people can get the flu, and it can be serious. In the United States, the influenza season may begin as early as September and end as late as May. The influenza season usually peaks around February, so getting immunized throughout the fall and winter is beneficial.

“I want tO feel like

I CAN STILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE” As the Supreme Court begins a new term this week, David Gergen sits down with Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female justice, to talk about life after the bench and her thoughts on the current state of the court COVER AND OPENING PHOTOGRAPHS BY LEN IRISH

t was July 1981. I was taking a rare vacation from my job as President Reagan’s communications director when my boss rang. “Please be in my office tomorrow at 10,” said Jim Baker, Reagan’s chief of staff. “I can’t tell you why.” Getting to Washington from New York’s Finger Lakes was an ordeal—long drive, broken-down car—but as I burst into his office, the effort was more than worth it. There stood Sandra Day O’Connor, the president’s choice to be the first woman justice on the Supreme Court. I liked her immediately: She was gracious and modest but came with a direct, don’t-messwith-me style that harked back to her days as a young cowgirl on the Lazy B ranch in Arizona, learning to brand cattle and hunt jackrabbits with a rifle. Today at 82, she hasn’t changed a bit. Slender and fit, she still has an


adventuresome spirit—the same confidence and drive that propelled her from the high desert to the highest court in the land. During her quarter-century on the bench, O’Connor became known for her core belief in civility, compromise, and the sensible center. As a moderate justice on an ideologically divided court, she cast the swing vote in countless 5-4 decisions. Before she stepped down in 2006 to spend more time with her beloved husband, John, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, Time magazine wrote that O’Connor would be remembered as “perhaps the most powerful Supreme Court justice in recent history.” In a book on the court, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin contends that O’Connor has become the most important woman in American history. She would be more comfortable being called an American pioneer.

It’s no surprise to me that “retirement” isn’t slowing her down. As she puts it, “I’m not accustomed to sitting around doing nothing.” When O’Connor isn’t filling in to hear cases in federal courts of appeals or devoting time to her three sons and their families, she’s hard at work promoting what she considers her most important cause yet: revitalizing civics education for young people so they are better informed about how our government works and what should be expected of them as citizens. Recently we sat down at her modest home in Phoenix to talk about her whirlwind romance with John, her troubles breaking through the glass ceiling as a female graduate of Stanford Law, the court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act, and her work to make sure the next generation keeps liberty alive. As always, she was gracious … and direct. PARADE: I was stunned by a recent survey that showed the approval rating for Supreme Court justices had fallen to 44 percent, down from 66 percent in the late ’80s. SANDRA DAY O’CONNOR: Yes. I thought that was very disturbing. I think Bush v. Gore may have been a turning point. It was seen by the public as political. [The case] had to be resolved somehow. But it didn’t help the image of the court any. Even though, from your point of view, it was properly decided? Yes. These days each president is under enormous pressure to nominate justices whose beliefs are in line with those of his party. And then when a justice goes the other way— as Chief Justice Roberts did in the decision to uphold President Obama’s health care reform law—there are cries of betrayal. The decision shows that the court is not acting on political instincts. It’s trying to resolve bona fide and tough legal issues—and it is. So even though the health care decision angered many conservatives, from your perspective it was

ment functions. Tell us about your effort to improve civics education. I think it’s the most important thing I’ve done. We have a complex system of government. You have to teach it to every generation. We want [young people] to continue to be part of it. We need ’em more than ever. An Annenberg poll found that more people could name an American Idol judge than the chief justice of the United States. That’s right. We have to do something about it. I want to [start with] middle schoolers. They enjoy learning at that age. Your website,, is designed to make civics fun.

ment, according to a Zogby International poll. How much do you know about our government? Find out by taking a civics portion of the U.S. naturalization test. (Warning: One in three citizens failed in a survey taken this year!) 1. What do we call the first 10 amendments to the Constitution? 2. What are two rights in the Declaration of Independence? 3. What stops one branch of government from becoming too powerful? 4. We elect a U.S. senator for how many years? 5. The House of Representatives has how many voting members? 6. If both the president and the vice president can no longer

serve, who becomes president? 7. Under our Constitution, some powers belong to the federal government. What is one power of the federal government? 8. When was the Constitution written? 9. The Federalist Papers supported the passage of the U.S. Constitution. Name one of the writers. 10. What territory did the United States buy from France in 1803?

SCORING To pass the civics test, an applicant must correctly answer 6 out of 10 questions, which are randomly selected from a list of 100 possibilities. Go to to see how you fared on these 10 and to try your hand at all 100.

How does it work? What we know is that kids like to play games on the computer. So I set up an advisory group of fabulous teachers to tell me what we needed to focus on in a civics course. And then we [had] games designed that focus on [those parameters]. Young people spend an average of 40 hours a week in front of a screen. One or two hours a week would do to teach them civics. The site also offers curriculum materials, right? Yes, [materials] that teachers can use. Baylor University did a study: They put iCivics to use in a lot of schools in Texas for about three months. They didn’t just say it was good; they gave it rave reviews, said it was incredible, that it’s engaging, that the kids really learn. The program is now used in 50 states and an estimated 55,000 classrooms. I want to be in a lot more than that. I mean, that’s just to start. What happens if we fail to teach our children civics? You have citizens who don’t understand how government works and they’re kind of soured on it. All they do is criticize. They have no idea that they can make things happen. As a citizen, you need to know how to be a part of it, how to express yourself—and not just by voting. [Test your own civics knowledge with the Pop Quiz, left.] I’d like to go back in time now to 1952, the year you graduated from Stanford Law School. You were among the top students in your class, along with William Rehnquist. And yet, no law firm would hire you. I applied to every firm that had a notice on Stanford’s placement bulletin board. Not a single


probably good for the court’s reputation? I think it should be. Yes. Did you feel that the criticisms of Chief Justice Roberts were unfair? It doesn’t matter what I think. But I felt that he made a remarkable effort to try to keep the court on course, carefully considering and deciding these major issues. That’s the court’s job. In your 25 years on the court, did you ever hear justices talk about the politics of a problem rather than the merits of the case? I’m sure that from time to time justices would say to each other, “Gosh, this is a case that’s going to get members of the public stirred up.” I mean, you’re not an idiot. How can we rebuild the public’s confidence in the court? [We need] to teach people about the proper role of the U.S. Supreme Court. It isn’t a political branch of the government. It resolves legal disputes and interprets laws passed by Congress. We’re going through a period where apparently voters are more suspicious about the motives of the court, and that’s unfortunate. The court is the only branch of government that explains the reasons for its decisions. The health care opinion is more than 100 pages long. If people would stop to examine those reasons now and then, maybe they’d be more accepting of the process and the system. I would hope so. Since you stepped down from the court, you’ve been working to teach young people about how our govern-

one would even give me an interview. So I had an undergraduate woman friend whose father was a partner in Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, and I asked her if she’d talk to her father and see if he could get me an interview. And she did and he did, and I went down to L.A. and [met] with this distinguished man. He looked at my résumé: “Oh, you have a fine résumé, Ms. Day, fine. But Ms. Day, this firm has never hired a woman lawyer. I don’t see the time when we will.” Did he say why? “Our clients wouldn’t stand for it.” That was his answer. [Then] he said, “Well, how well do you type?” I said, “So-so.” And he said, “If you can type well enough, I might be able to get you on as a legal secretary.” I said, “That isn’t the job that I want to find.” Where did you go from there? I heard on the grapevine that the county attorney in San Mateo once had a woman lawyer on the staff, so I wrote him a letter. He said, “I’ve hired everyone I’m authorized to hire and I’m not funded for another one, so I just don’t have a slot for you.” And he said, “In addition to that, I don’t have an empty office.” So I said to him, “Well, I really would like very much to work in your office. I’ll work for you for nothing until such time in the future as you get a little money and can pay me something.” So that’s how you got your start. …

We hadn’t quite finished when the library closed, and he said, “Well, why don’t we take this down the highway to Dinah’s Shack over a beer.” So that’s what we did, and we had a blast. And the very next night, we were out again, and that continued for 40 nights in a row. Did you take him home to the ranch? Oh, I did, and it was terrible, yeah. The first time I took him, we drove and my mother came out to greet us; you could see the car coming for miles away with the dust. I was happy to see her and have

And she said, “Well, your father’s branding some calves down in the corral.” I said, “Okay, we’ll go down and tell him hello.” The male calves, when they’d brand ’em, they’d just castrate them and throw the things in a bucket. The testicles? Testicles. They were just bloody, horrid things. [My father] put [a few] on some baling wire and put ’em in the branding fire, and he said, “I’ll just fix a few of these for you, John.” John, to his credit, took the things off the wire, popped ’em in his mouth, and said, “Very good, Mr. Day. Very good.” [laughs] I know you had a wonderful relationship with John for many years. John was one of the funniest people I have ever known. He made us laugh every single day. And he liked your directness. Well, I don’t know; we got along fine. [laughs] He didn’t sue for a divorce. Any number of people have told me how courageously you dealt with his Alzheimer’s. There wasn’t anything else to do. It’s a terrible disease. I hate it ’cause you lose the personality. The person you knew disappears. You seem to be moving forward now. [John passed away in 2009.] Life goes on. By this stage in life, most people would put their feet up and say, “I’ve had a good run. Now I’m going to rest and enjoy.” But you— I had a good life, and the reason it was a good life is because I stayed busy doing the things that mattered to me. If I stopped doing that, I think my whole life would disintegrate. I want to feel like, to the extent that I’m able to, I can still make a difference.






PLANNED PARENTHOOD V. CASEY (1992) “Liberty finds no refuge in a jurisprudence of doubt,” begin O’Connor and Justices Souter and Kennedy in an opinion upholding the court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. “Some of us as individuals find abortion offensive to our most basic principles of morality, but that cannot control our decision. Our obligation is to define the liberty of all, not to mandate our own moral code.”

BUSH V. GORE (2000) O’Connor acted as the swing vote in the historic 5-4 decision to uphold the Florida secretary of state’s original certification of Florida’s electoral votes—effectively naming George W. Bush our 43rd president. Asked by Wolf Blitzer in 2010 “if the right man was selected,” she responded: “Well, the man who got the most votes. That’s what it comes down to at the end of the day.”

MCCONNELL V. FEC (2003) In the opinion for this 5-4 decision, O’Connor and Justice Stevens found the McCain/Feingold campaign finance reform law constitutional, accepting Congress’s determination that large soft-money contributions give rise to corruption. When the court overturned parts of her ruling in 2010, O’Connor said, “Gosh, I step away for a couple of years and there’s no telling what’s going to happen.”

GRUTTER V. BOLLINGER (2003) With another 5-4 majority, the court upheld the constitutionality of a University of Michigan affirmative action program. “In order to cultivate a set of leaders with legitimacy in the eyes of the citizenry,” O’Connor said, “it is necessary that the path to leadership be visibly open to talented and qualified individuals of every race and ethnicity.” The court will revisit the issue next month.

HAMDI V. RUMSFELD (2004) O’Connor penned the court’s opinion declaring, in a reversal of Bush administration policy, that even citizens designated “enemy combatants” have the right to challenge their imprisonment “before a neutral decision maker,” asserting that “a state of war is not a blank check … when it comes to the rights of the Nation’s citizens.” —David Gergen and Michael Zuckerman


No pay. And I put my desk in with his secretary. And I loved my job. I really did. Almost three decades later, you were appointed to the nation’s highest court. What do you think your appointment did for women in law? It opened lots of doors. Not only in the United States, but elsewhere, too. That’s what President Reagan thought would happen, and it did. Would you say that most of the barriers women lawyers once faced have come down? I think most of them have. There are still some issues at the top to deal with, as we all know. But in terms of general capacity to practice and earn a living, it’s opened up. It really [has]. Anne-Marie Slaughter sparked a heated conversation this summer when she published a piece in The Atlantic arguing that we’re selling young women a fiction when we tell them they can have it all. Do you agree? It is true that as you have children, there are a good many months when you don’t want to be working full-time. I agree that that’s an issue. And you run into it again at the end of your parents’ lives, for instance, or your spouse’s. But I think that would be true in any society. You raised three sons. What advice do you give young women when it comes to motherhood and career? To try to fit it all in. I [tell] ’em it’s very difficult. I never took even an hour off to go get my hair done. Those are the things you give up. You only have so many hours in the day, and when you have kids, and kids in school, and you’re trying to feed the family and cook meals and be a mother and a wife and all those things, you’re going to give up a lot of things. But that’s okay. I mean, I preferred to hang on to my legal work. Returning to your law school days, I read that when you

Controversial “Diet Pill” Hits Market Consumers Excited... Experts Concerned! I f you’re having a hard time finding a box of TriAdalean™ diet pills at your local CVS or GNC, you’re not alone. This controversial, high-powered diet pill is selling out even before it hits the shelf. Some waiting lists are more than two weeks long with women outnumbering men by about twenty to one.

You would think the people at Covaxil Laboratories® (TriAdalean’s distributor) would be thrilled about TriAdalean’s success. Instead, they are spending most of their time replying to selfproclaimed “diet experts” who find the return of these super-potent diet pills an alarming trend.

instructed to take one serving in the morning and one with their main meal for a total of two servings per day. During the trial, the subjects were specifically told not to “diet” and maintained their previous eating habits and daily physical exercise.

They’re flying off the shelf, but they’re not for everyone...

Nevertheless, while the science seems to support TriAdalean’s energy- and fat-burning claims, this has not silenced the critics. Their concern is more about the recent introduction of a number of ‘amphetamine-like’ diet pills entering the market without physician oversight (like the super-popular, and very expensive BiphedAdrene™ from Generix Labs™). Clearly, as interest in these high-potency diet pills continues to grow, more and more will follow. Consumers are simply demanding a real “bang for their buck,” so to speak.

“This stuff is nothing more than a legalized ‘go-fast’ pill... I would venture to say that just as many women use them as energy boosters and mood enhancers as those who use them to lose weight,” said one critic who wished to remain anonymous. “Not so,” said Amy Heaton, PhD, Director of Scientific Affairs at Covaxil Labs. “While some people think TriAdalean is nothing more than a legalized ‘go-fast’ pill... they forget that in clinical trials, TriAdalean’s novel, high-potency, anthocyanin- and flavanone-rich complex not only produced significant weight loss but a 15.6% mean reduction of actual body fat.” In fact, Dr. Heaton went on to explain that TriAdalean’s novel weight-control complex was tested in a 12-week, double-blind, clinical trial involving 20 overweight volunteers (mean BMI 28.3). The subjects were randomly divided into two groups: one that received the TriAdalean weight-loss complex and another that received identical-looking sugar pills. Subjects were

The results were extraordinary. In addition to a truly significant loss of body weight, the study showed that the majority of the weight loss came from fat mass. Not simply body weight, but actual fat mass... a mean reduction of 15.6% body fat, which was a significant improvement over baseline and over the placebo group.

TriAdalean ($79 USD for a full 30-day supply) available at CVS and GNC. If out of stock you may order direct from COVAXIL LABS at or call 1-800-698-2103 -SHIPPING IS FREE!*-

One thing is for sure, these super-powerful diet pills are not for everyone. If you are pregnant, nursing, have high blood pressure, diabetes, suffer from any type of psychosis, take MAO inhibitors, or if you are not in overall good health, these new high-potency formulations are definitely not for you. So if you’re tempted to try one of these powerful little pills, you might want to check with your personal health provider.

BEE CCAREFUL AREFUL WHEN GIVING ACETAMINOPHEN TO YOUR CHILD. It’s easy for kids to take too much, and overdoses can be deadly, says Jan Engle, Pharm.D., a professor at the University of Illinois College of Pharmacy. Two easy ways to stay safe: Dose by weight (not by age), and use the dosing device that comes with the drug rather than a spoon. For more smart strategies, go to Parade .com/medicine.


What virus infects 3.2 million Americans, leads to 15,000 deaths each year, and is a major contributor to the fastest-growing lethal cancer in the U.S.? It’s hepatitis C, and the vast majority of people who are infected don’t even know it, since the virus can be symptomless for years or even decades. As a result, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that every American born from 1945 to 1965 get tested for exposure to hepatitis C, which can lead to liver disease and liver cancer. “By the time most people get diagnosed, they may already have significant damage to their liver,” says Bryce Smith, Ph.D., lead health scientist in the Division of Viral Hepatitis at the CDC. “And 45 percent of those infected report no known risk factor.” The virus, commonly associated with intravenous drug use, can spread in many other ways, according to Smith. “You may have picked it up by sharing a razor or a toothbrush with someone who was infected,” he says. “The U.S. blood supply 12 • September 30, 2012

World’s Greatest Teacher A best-selling author goes back to his high school to thank the person who first encouraged him to write


he teacher who

changed my life didn’t do it by encouraging her students to stand on their desks, like John Keating in Dead Poets Society. Or by toting a baseball bat through the halls, like Principal Clark in Lean on Me. She did it in a much simpler way: by telling me I was good at something. When I met Ms. Shelia Spicer, I was in the ninth grade and had just moved to Florida from Brooklyn. Most of my teachers at Highland Oaks Junior High seemed to look past me; I was one more student among hundreds. Ms. Spicer, however, took a special interest. “You can write,” she said, explaining that she wanted to move me into the honors English class. But because of scheduling conflicts, transferring wasn’t an option. So instead, Ms. Spicer told me to ignore everything she wrote on the blackboard for the rest of the year. “Ignore the discussions. Ignore the assignments. You’re going to sit here and do the honors work.” A decade later, when my first novel was published, I went back to Ms. Spicer’s classroom and knocked on the door. “Can I help you?” she asked, trying to place me. I’d had a lot more hair the last time we saw each other. “My name is Brad Meltzer,” I said, handing her a copy of my

book. “And I wrote this for you.” Ms. Spicer began to cry. She’d been considering early retirement, she said, because she felt she wasn’t having enough of an impact on her students. I didn’t know how to make Ms. Spicer understand what she’d done for me: Thanks to her, I fell in love with Shakespeare. (In fact, she once forced me to read the part of Romeo while a girl I had a crush on read Juliet.) I learned how to compose an essay. It was her belief

in me that gave me the confidence to become a writer. I owed her. Thirteen years later, when I heard that she was finally ready to retire, you better believe I was at her going-away party. It felt a little like sneaking into the faculty lounge: I wanted to surprise Ms. Spicer, so



Twenty-seven years later, Ms. Spicer’s still head of the class.

I tried to blend in. But as I sipped my water and eavesdropped on school gossip, I had a troubling thought: What if Ms. Spicer wasn’t as great as I remembered? I was suddenly terrified that reality might destroy my memory of the woman who had inspired me so deeply. Overdramatic, I know, but true. I was hiding in a corner when one of the teachers called everyone’s attention to the presentation of a parting gift—a crystal vase. All Ms. Spicer needed to do was say a few words thanking everyone for coming. Instead, she stood up and delivered a stem-winding speech that began like this: “For those of you complaining that kids have changed, and that it’s harder to teach these days, you’re getting old. You’re getting lazy. These kids haven’t changed. You have! Do. Not. Give. Up. On. These. Kids!” When she finished her rallying cry, the crowd burst into applause, and I was ready to apply for a teaching certificate. That was the woman I remembered! I went up to Ms. Spicer and thanked her for changing my life all those years ago. I realized that night that I was still, and would forever be, her student. Oh, and my crush who read the part of Juliet? I married her. I owe Ms. Spicer for that, too. Brad Meltzer’s newest thriller, The Fifth Assassin, will be out in January. His nonfiction books Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter profile remarkable people from Amelia Earhart to Randy Pausch to, of course, Ms. Shelia Spicer.
