Bend girl out of spelling bee By Keith Chu The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — Bend’s Hannah Allison spelled both of her words correctly in the first two oral rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday, but she still fell short of qualifying for the semifinals today. Even so, Hannah, 13, said she wasn’t disappointed. After all, she faced some pretty tough competition. “I knew it was going to be hard because 70 people had been here before,” she said, after the results were announced. Hannah, a home-schooled seventh-grader, came through on the big stage. After starting the day with a breakfast

of a bagel, watermelon and peaches, and about an hour and a half of studying, she spelled “efficacy” with little difficulty. Before and after her turn at the microphone, Hannah intently watched other spellers, sometimes spelling along with them. She did it, Hannah said, because “I just like to spell.” And after the first round, Hannah got a picture with the bee’s pronouncer, Jacques Bailly, who she knew from watching past bees. By the third round, the normal bounds of the English language were apparently too constraining on the competition’s supply of fiendishly difficult words. See Bee / A4

Area schools face tough decisions State cuts put districts deeper in the red By Patrick Cliff and Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

School districts around the region were dealt a blow last week when the state announced further funding cuts. Now district officials are busy finding areas to trim more money and are working with unions to get concessions that will help them stay afloat. On May 25, Gov. Ted Kulongoski announced state agencies supported by taxes, like K-12 schools, community colleges and universities, and health and safety departments, would have to cut

about 9 percent for the final 12 months of the 2009-11 biennium in order to deal with an expected half billion dollar shortfall. For K-12 education, that means a reduction of $243 million. Bend-La Pine Schools must cut about $6.5 million from its approximately $120 million budget, which the board approved last week with various union concessions and funding cuts. Superintendent Ron Wilkinson said district officials will offer a formal recommendation for the new cuts to the school board on Tuesday. See Schools / A4

BEND EXPLOSION

Nosler fire investigation continues By Erin Golden and Scott Hammers The Bulletin

A day after a massive explosion ripped through a Bend bullet factory, investigators were back on the scene Thursday, looking for clues about what led to the blast — and figuring out how to safely clean up the mess. By late afternoon, crews were removing hazardous materials and using heavy equipment to take apart the large sections of the building that collapsed in the blast. Debris scattered in a nearby parking lot and down the street was marked with flags.

Cause of explosion still unknown

Volunteers plant new flowers around the bushes forming the word “Bend” near the intersection of Third Street, Division Street and the Bend Parkway on Thursday. The display welcoming visitors to the city appeared 18 years ago, when Vicki Brownrigg donated bushes to create the display. Every year since, with the help of the Bend Park & Recreation District, Brownrigg has gathered friends to plant colorful flowers around the bushes. She said they typically plant shortly after Memorial Day, and that volunteers usually follow up the planting with a big lunch at The Riverhouse.

PLUGGED IN

Confession reaction during 12-step program meeting riles readers Dear Abby: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his JEANNE Narcotics PHILLIPS Anonymous (NA) meetings. The person asked if he should go to the police. You advised him to talk about it to the “group leader.” Abby, in a 12-step program, there is no formal leader who has a

responsibility to report anything to the authorities. There are usually discussion groups led by someone chosen for the night. I am not condoning what the person did at that young age. It was a horrible act. But 12-step programs are based on ANONYMITY. Reporting what is heard at meetings is completely against what 12-step meetings are all about. It was unfair of you to place responsibility on someone who is there for his OWN addiction to tell on another group member. – Anonymous in the USA Dear Anonymous: I received a ton of criticism for my response to that

letter. Readers like you wrote to point out that I was misinformed about how these programs work; others berated me for not insisting the writer notify the police immediately. I was – and still am – of two minds on the question. While it would be satisfying to see “justice done,” I could not bring myself to recommend going against the principle upon which these 12-step programs that have helped thousands of people is based.

Justice serves the powerful in Russia By Ellen Barry New York Times News Service

MAGAS, Russia — Only one spectator showed up for the final hearing in the killing of Magomed Yevloyev. He was a broadbeamed, ruddy-faced man in a pressed black suit, and once in the courtroom he removed his tall fur hat, put it on the bench beside him and waited for a chance to speak. When the time came, Yakhya Yevloyev stood and recited a litany of evidence not gathered that might have led to a murder conviction in his son’s death. The room went silent out of respect for the man’s loss, and for a moment it seemed as if the process could rewind 18 months to the beginning, when his son, an opposition leader in the southern republic of Ingushetia, was hustled into a police car and shot through the head at point-blank range. Back then, in August 2008, it was a crime so outrageous that it seemed to demand action. Magomed Yevloyev was feuding with the region’s leader, Murat Zyazikov, when the two men happened to board the same flight from Moscow. Half an hour after the police escorted Yevloyev, 36, off the plane, he was dropped off at a hospital with an executionstyle wound. Death is often murky in the violent borderland of the Russian north Caucasus, but this one seemed different. Protests broke out in Ingushetia, and Western leaders pressed Moscow to punish those responsible. Even the Kremlin appeared to feel the political pressure: Within two months, President Dmitry Medvedev removed both Zyazikov and his interior minister. Almost two years later, the case serves as a lesson in how the legal process can be strangled. In Russia, the prosecutor has long served as the guard dog of the powerful. In this case, federal investigators reporting to Moscow took over and blocked any inquiry that could have pointed to senior officials. Yakhya urged investigators to pursue the case as a murder, but an examination of the legal records shows that possibility was not explored. Instead, the state opened a case of negligent homi-

Bee Continued from A1 Instead, spellers faced an array of terms drawn from food labels (lecithin: used as an emulsifier in many products), foreign languages (wedel: a German term for a particular skiing maneuver) and a prison made famous by the French philosopher Michel Foucault (panopticon). But Hannah made quick work of her second challenge. Upon hearing “neurokyme,” she quickly asked for the definition — the kinetic energy of neural activity —

Schools Continued from A1 That recommendation will include cutting two class days at the end of this school year and between three and 3.5 class days from the 2010-11 school year. For employees, it would mean seven days off without pay for some and as many as 12 days off without pay for others. Each day that schools are closed represents about $400,000 in savings. The district will also likely cut about 12 teaching positions, mostly from the elementary grades that have the smallest class sizes. “We realize additional layoffs only escalate the economic problem in our community,” Wilkinson said. “We’re trying to make the cuts as far from kids as possible.” Bend-La Pine Schools will also likely cut some classified and administrative positions as well, but Wilkinson said those haven’t yet been identified. Union groups must approve some of the cuts, and Wilkinson said if employee groups refuse to accept fewer days he will have no choice but to conduct additional layoffs. The Sisters School District has a $12 million budget and expects a $534,000 deficit as a result of the latest round of state cuts. The district had already planned to cut two noninstructional days from next year to balance the budget. Because of those cuts, the district was apprehensive to cut just days from the calendar, according to Interim Superintendent Dennis Dempsey. All of the proposed cuts —

Yakhya Yevloyev speaks during an interview in the southern Russian republic of Ingushetia. The 2008 killing of his son, Magomed Yevloyev, an opposition figure then in custody, stirred outrage in the volatile north Caucasus. cide, a mild charge used in medical malpractice cases, and prosecutors requested a sentence of two years. The official explanation of what happened took shape an hour and five minutes after Yevloyev died on a hospital bed. His death, investigators wrote, resulted from a bizarre accident.

When Magomed Yevloyev arrived at the hospital that day, he was in a “deep coma,” and a doctor measured his blood pressure at zero. A coroner pronounced him dead at 2:55 p.m., describing the gunshot wound to his head, canting upward through his right parietal lobe, as “point blank.” At 4 p.m., an investigator in the regional prosecutor’s office opened a negligent homicide case, stating that Yevloyev was being transported for questioning in a bombing case when he tried to wrestle a Kalashnikov rifle from the officer to his right. The investigator had not spoken to the three officers who were in the car — he had just read statements provided by the Ingush Interior Ministry — and his explanation raised more questions than it answered. “Measures were taken to suppress that attempt,” he wrote, “during the course of which Mr. Yevloyev received a gunshot

wound from an accidental shot from a police weapon.” If investigators checked for Yevloyev’s fingerprints on the Kalashnikov, they never presented any evidence of it. And if Yevloyev reared his head back and hit the gun, it is not clear how the bullet hit him on the flat side of the head, an inch above his left ear. But a transcript of the crime scene re-enactment shows the forensic experts did not press the matter. Yakhya Yevloyev, 67, did not expect prosecutors to represent his interests. Under Russian law, victims hire their own counsel to cross-examine witnesses and testify in court. This gives them a formal voice, but not an equal one. In this case, Yakhya and his lawyers were alone in arguing that his son had been murdered. Yuri Turygin, the regional prosecutor in Ingushetia, said he prayed that Yevloyev would survive the gunshot wound, aware of the turmoil that would result if he died. Yet he suggested that Yevloyev, with his history of defiance, provoked his captors as he was being driven to police headquarters, knowing that some of his supporters were in pursuit. It was Turygin’s office that opened an investigation into negligent homicide. The case was taken out of his hands a day later, when it was transferred to the federal investigative committee,

and language of origin — Greek — before spelling it perfectly. Relief flashed across Hannah’s face as she walked back to her seat. Afterward, Rex Allison explained that not only had Hannah studied neurokyme, she had it on her computer’s screensaver. After the end of the third round, Hannah was swept up in drama. As she walked toward her parents’ seats, she realized that bee officials gave her another speller’s test results. She rushed back outside the auditorium to get her results, only to find them missing. “I don’t know where 201 went,”

a green-blazer-wearing bee official told her, referring to Hannah’s results. At the same time, the bee’s director, Paige Kimble, began reading the numbers for spellers who qualified for the semifinals. Under bee rules, the score that resulted in 50 or fewer spellers remaining served as the cutoff. Hannah fell a few points short, but there wasn’t much regret in the Allison family afterward. Her parents, Rex and Dawn Allison, showered her with praise. “You did awesome,” Dawn said. “Great job standing up there in front of the lights.”

Shot ‘point blank’

“We realize additional layoffs only escalate the economic problem in our community. We’re trying to make the cuts as far from kids as possible.” — Ron Wilkinson, superintendent Bend-La Pine School District which would happen this and next year — are subject to union approval, and they include cutting days, raises and staff. Dempsey has proposed cutting two days from the end of this year for a savings of just under $80,000. But the school year ends June 11 and teachers stop work on June 14, leaving little time to come to an agreement, Dempsey said. Both unions in Sisters are set to notify the district of membership vote results by today.

Sisters foregoing raises For next year, Sisters has proposed eliminating all the contract step wage increases for employees to save $65,000. In addition to the two noninstructional days the district was already going to cut, Sisters would cut four more days. That move would save $148,000, Dempsey said. Then, through attrition, Sisters would save slightly more than $200,000 by eliminating onethird of a classified position and 2.5 teaching positions, Dempsey said. The district has more than 80 teachers. The Redmond School District, with a $2.6 million hole, announced Wednesday that it was cutting three days from the current year’s end. The district’s budget is about $55 million. The

district expects to find out today if unions approved the cuts. Union members are also voting on other proposed cuts, including eliminating three days from either this year or next. That would come on top of three non-student days cut from next year. Those moves would save more than $1 million. Union members are also being asked to make salary concessions, including freezing step raises and cost-of-living increases. But union members will decide whether to make those cuts or alternatively reduce the district’s PERS savings and cut yet another non-student day from next year. The district would save more than $1 million with whichever of those two options union members select. Redmond will also kill its bus replacement savings of $294,000 and reduce its planned savings of $240,000 for the new high school — set to open in 2012 — by $100,000. To save almost $2.6 million, the district had to look at all options, Superintendent Vickie Fleming said. If the unions reject the proposed cuts, the only other option would be to cut staff, Fleming said. “That’s the only thing we can do unilaterally,” Fleming said. But, Fleming said, that’s not an

based in Moscow. In any case, Turygin said that if Yakhya Yevloyev had a compelling argument that a murder charge should have been pursued, the judges had leeway to send the case back to the prosecutor. In response to detailed questions from The New York Times, a spokesman for the federal investigative committee wrote that legal analysis of the evidence was “not within the authority of investigative organs,” and suggested that questions be directed to judges instead. Magomed Daurbekov, the chairman of Ingushetia’s Council of Judges, said the blame should fall on investigators, since judges are constrained by the evidence they compile. In December 2009, officer Ibragim Yevloyev was convicted of negligent homicide and sentenced to two years in a prison colony. Yakhya appealed, and by March, when the case reached the Ingush Supreme Court in Magas, the capital, he was the last person hanging on the result.

Blood feuds declared After his death, unnamed “friends of the deceased” declared a blood feud against 13 officials, but Yakhya said he argued strenuously against it, rejecting a tradition that courses through the Caucasus. In the brilliant light of the Supreme Court, he begged the judges to send the case back to the prosecutors on the basis of its flaws. Indeed the judges had identified a flaw, but it was not one that he expected. As he sat in stunned silence, the judges announced that prosecutors had overcharged Ibragim Yevloyev and reduced his sentence from two years in a prison camp to two years’ house arrest. The policeman, Ibragim Yevloyev, remains under house arrest, though his lawyer says he is still a target in a blood feud. But in the end, none of these men will make the final decision on how to define justice in this incendiary part of Russia. That choice falls to Magomed Yevloyev’s children, who will have to decide whether to put their faith in the state.

Just for reaching the bee, Allison will receive a watch, $100 cash, Webster’s Unabridged Third New International Dictionary on CD and a $100 U.S. savings bond. Since she’s got a year of bee eligibility left, Hannah said she’s looking forward to next year. “One more year,” she said. And even though she has today free, Hannah answered immediately when asked what she’s got planned: “I’m going to watch!” Keith Chu can be reached at 202-662-7456 or at kchu@bendbulletin.com.

option the district even wants to consider. Last year, the district cut about 60 teaching positions. More staff cuts would push class sizes too high, Fleming said. “We are down to bare-bone staffing levels because we cut everything last year,” Fleming said. “It’s almost impossible to do business if we have to cut (teaching) staff at the building level.”

Jefferson relying on its attrition Jefferson County School District will be down an approximate $900,000 after the state’s announcement. Chief Financial Officer Dan Chamness said the district will deal with the funding hole through attrition. He said officials are not considering layoffs or a shorter school year. The district’s total budget is about $48.5 million. In Culver, school officials thought they had carryover funds, but now the district will need to find $328,000 to cut. “We’re going to try and be as creative as we can, and protect classrooms and protect positions,” Culver Superintendent Stefanie Garber said. Garber said district officials plan to look at cutting technology and textbooks. Crook County School District officials did not return calls for comment. Lauren Dake contributed to this report.

Samaritans Continued from A1 Brewer contends the law, known as SB1070, is necessary to fill a federal leadership vacuum on immigration reform. Obama, who has called the measure “misguided,” has directed the Justice Department to assess the law’s constitutionality. While the debate goes on, Wallin and a group of 140 volunteers who call themselves Los Samaritanos work against brutal heat and an unforgiving desert landscape where 61 migrants died in the seven months ending April 30. In a region split by the increasingly fortified U.S.-Mexico border, they say they are doing moral deeds in the face of a simple reality: Migrants keep coming. “Most of the people we find are broken, beaten down, sobbing, so lonesome, broken. They just want to go home,” said the Rev. Randy Mayer, pastor of Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Sahuarita, Ariz., home to Los Samaritanos. “We’re just trying to stop people from dying. Somebody will say, ‘What don’t you understand about “illegal”?’ Well, it’s more complicated than that.” U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials, who have caught 168,000 illegal immigrants since Oct. 1 in this section of southern Arizona near Tucson, disapprove of the effort. “Anyone who encourages illegal activities adds to our workload,” said Robert Boatright, deputy head of the 90,000-square-mile Tucson region. He said the maps and supplies give border-crossers a “false sense of security.” “That’s an incentive,” he said, “but they might be on the wrong trail or the water might be gone.” Don Severe, an activist in Green Valley who favors strict penalties for many bordercrossers, put it another way: “How would you feel if one of these people you helped went on and raped or killed your granddaughter?” The debate over the border has intensified since the murder of Cochise County rancher Robert Krentz, who some suspect was killed by an illegal immigrant, and Arizona’s adoption of a law that empowers police to request identity papers from anyone suspected of being here illegally. The law,

due to take effect July 29, is being challenged in federal court. Wallin, a retiree who helped run homeless shelters in California, calls the desert “beautiful but deadly.” She points to the dry, rocky ground and the thorny brush. From weekly visits to the other side of the border, where she talks with Mexicans who have been deported or defeated in their efforts to cross into the United States, she knows the stories of exploitative smugglers and dangerous treks. “I can’t live here knowing that people are almost literally dying in my backyard and not do something to help,” she said during a recent search mission that took her south to the Mexican border town of Sasabe. “I don’t want to put blinders on and pretend it’s not happening.” Wallin and Mayer packed one of three Samaritanos vehicles with water and food one recent morning and drove to familiar stopping points on the trail from the border, 40 miles away. Near a railroad track that stretches south to Nogales, they inspected two blue barrels of water left by a similar organization. Wearing T-shirts that said, “Humanitarian aid is never a crime,” they crossed the tracks and ducked into a thicket of trees and scrub brush that offered shelter from the blistering sun and the Border Patrol alike, picking up empty water jugs and scouting for evidence that people had recently been there. At their next stop, beneath an Interstate 19 overpass, they found water containers, including one painted black to avoid catching the shine of a federal flashlight. As they walked along a dry river bed, calling their greetings, they found a discarded jacket and an empty box of anti-dehydration tablets, but no migrants. They made their way west through the remote landscape, stopping to talk with two security guards hired through a private contractor, waiting in a bus rigged like a mobile jail to haul away captured immigrants. The pair passed Border Patrol vehicles and steel towers topped with surveillance equipment. In Sasabe, on the Mexican side of the border, the asphalt gave way to dirt roads. When a man motioned to ask whether they had water, Wallin stopped to hand out water and new white socks to a half-dozen laborers who said they were on their way south.

U.K. authorities seek answers to rampage

Bankruptcy Continued from A1 Since filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection two years ago, this scrappy Bay Area bedroom community has come to symbolize the fiscal troubles — now faced by many cities — that helped push it to the brink: unrestrained spending, out-of-control pension costs and a burst housing bubble. “I don’t think other cities look at us with a jaundiced eye because we’ve filed bankruptcy,” said Mayor Osby Davis. “Other cities ... look at us and say, ‘Wow, we’re a step away from where you are. We just want to know, how are you getting through this?’” The answer, so far, is not so well, although “the hardships visited on Vallejo residents are not because of the bankruptcy,” said Marc Levinson, the city’s lead bankruptcy attorney. “The bankruptcy is an attempt to fix it,” he continued. “If it hadn’t been for the bankruptcy, the problem would have been worse. The city could not pay its bills.” Evidence of municipal misery is widespread. Foreclosed homes are sold in front of the Civic Center so often that City Hall is plastered with signs warning auctioneers not to conduct business at the lobby information desk or the monument to fallen firefighters and police officers. Sixty percent of all borrowers in the Vallejo area owed more on their mortgages than their homes were worth in the first quarter of 2010, according to CoreLogic, compared with 24 percent of borrowers nationwide and 34 percent in California. Property and sales tax revenue are expected to drop 18 percent and 10 percent, respectively, in the current fiscal year. The city’s general fund has plummeted 20 percent in the last two years. Trees go untrimmed, potholes unfilled. The economic development staff has been slashed to one. Even Walmart has decamped from this city of 121,000. Vallejo has stopped funding senior centers and libraries.

Explosion Continued from A1 “We’re developing a plan of attack with the safety of the investigators and the community being the number one focus,” said Bend Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff Bond. Cheryl Bishop, a special agent with the ATF’s Seattle Field Division, said agents from the Seattle and Portland offices were sent to assist with the investigation and provide technical expertise on handling explosives. “We’ll be involved at the scene until the scene is stable and they’ve figured out exactly what happened,” she said. Nosler, like other manufacturers of firearms or ammunition, is licensed by the ATF and has to submit regular reports about what it makes and who it sells to, said Charles Spaulding, the area supervisor for industry operations in the ATF’s Portland office. “They get licensed in threeyear increments and get inspected much less frequently,” Spaulding said. “There are way too many firearms licensees out there for us to inspect them any more frequently.”

ATF does not monitor working conditions The ATF does not regulate facility operations or working conditions at companies like Nosler. OSHA, the state agency responsible for employee health and safety, last inspected Nosler in 2006 and found no problems. Melanie Mesaros, a spokeswoman for the agency, said inspectors visited the Nosler facility in 2003 because of a health complaint but did not issue a citation. In 2000, OSHA issued Nosler a letter of corrected action after an inspector found that the facility had natural gas pipes that were not properly labeled and a wheel machine that lacked a guard piece meant to protect the operator. Until recently, Mesaros said OSHA typically scheduled inspections as the result of previous violations or workers compensation claims. Within the last year, however, the agency set up a system that separates businesses based on potential hazards. She said Nosler is listed as a high-hazard industry for both health and safety, and said the company would probably be inspected more frequently than

Georgia Street, Vallejo’s main thoroughfare downtown, is busy on a weekday afternoon. Vallejo is the largest city bankruptcy in California history. “The unofficial civic motto used to be, ‘Vallejo, come for the crack, stay for the hookers,’” joked writer David Corbett, who moved here in 1994 and sets some of his gritty novels in a real or imagined Vallejo. “Since bankruptcy, it’s been changed to, ‘Vallejo, where your hope comes to die.’” Nearly 20 years ago, the Vallejo City Council appointed a citizens committee to review the municipal finances, which were tottering even then. J.D. Miller, a certified public accountant who served on the committee, remembers standing in front of a whiteboard on which he had drawn a simple graph. A steeply climbing line showed expenses — entirely labor costs. A flatter one showed revenue. The two were set to intersect in 1994. “The contracts they had with all of their employee groups in 1993 were unsustainable. That’s why the two lines collided,” Miller said, adding that the City Council “continued to give

businesses considered less hazardous, though there are no specific timing requirements for inspections. OSHA is involved in the investigation into Wednesday’s explosion. Nosler was last inspected by the Bend Fire Department in February 2008, and officials found “no deficiencies,” according to department documents. A fire alarm went off in the facility in June 2008, but officials were not able to determine what triggered the alarm.

Company figuring out what was lost As officials continue to piece together what happened on Wednesday afternoon, Nosler spokesman Zach Waterman said the company is trying to figure out what it lost — and what will happen next. Waterman said Thursday that the company does not yet know how extensive damage to the inside of the building is or when employees will be allowed back inside. Supervisors and Nosler management went to work on Thursday at the company’s facility next door to the damaged building. For now, Waterman said all Nosler employees are continuing to receive a paycheck. Once investigators give Nosler permission to re-enter the building, Waterman said one of their first jobs will be to determine what equipment and products can be salvaged.

Should be able to meet short-term needs In the meantime, the company has a stock of finished goods stored in the building next door, and should be able to meet short-term company needs. The corner of the building that was destroyed contained Nosler’s ballistics testing lab, a subterranean room where employees fire live ammunition to test for velocity and accuracy. Waterman said Nosler conducts regular fire drills, and every new employee goes through an extended orientation to familiarize them with the locations of fire alarms, fire extinguishers and emergency exits. “In retrospect, that’s why you do these things,” he said.

raises and benefits.” Although the council did begin cutting costs, Vallejo ran through its reserves and sought bankruptcy protection in May 2008. Three of its four unions objected to the filing, but a federal judge ruled that the city was insolvent and eligible for bankruptcy. Vallejo officials have reached new contracts with all but the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2376, which represents about 240 city employees. Arbitration with the IBEW began last month. Salary increases were eliminated for firefighters and management workers. The city had not paid police officers past salary increases; the union agreed not to demand repayment. Vallejo imposed lower interest payments to bondholders and missed three interest payments entirely. The city has not altered worker pensions, Levinson said, wanting to avoid a costly legal battle, among other reasons. The city

hopes to emerge from bankruptcy by the end of the year, he said. Nowhere are Vallejo’s troubles as apparent as in public safety. Since the filing, the city has closed two fire stations and may shutter a third. In the last several years, police ranks have dropped to about 100 from 155, as officers took jobs elsewhere and were not replaced. Only two have been laid off. Police officers no longer patrol the schools, and the department has ended its community policing program. The detective ranks have been cut in half. “If there’s an emergency, officers will break from what they were doing and respond to that situation immediately,” said Lt. Abel Tenorio, a department spokesman. “But we have had occasions where several emergencies have occurred at the same time.” That’s when the city has had to call for help from the Solano County Sheriff’s Department and other nearby police agencies.

previous conviction for theft from a former employer, for which he did not serve a prison sentence. Speaking to the media, investigating police officer Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Goulding called for the community’s help in confirming the motive. “We hear rumors of finance and domestic (troubles),” he said “We are aware of all those things, and they are all proper lines of investigation for us, but we will not be speculating as to the why at this time.”

Ukraine lawmakers vote to abandon NATO goals Bloomberg News KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine’s parliament voted Thursday to drop membership of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization from the country’s foreign policy goals, supporting an initiative by President Viktor Yanukovych. Two hundred and fiftythree lawmakers in the 450strong legislature in Kiev voted in a first reading to support a law defining Ukraine as a non-aligned country that Yanukovych submitted this week. The document says Ukraine still seeks to join the European Union. Ukraine has focused on strengthening relations with Russia since Yanukovych

took office in February. His predecessor, Viktor Yushchenko, had sought closer integration with Europe and wanted to lead Ukraine into the military alliance. Russia is against further eastward expansion of NATO to include former Soviet republics such as Ukraine and Georgia. The alliance decided in 2008 that the two countries would eventually become members, though it refused to fast-track their applications.

Room taxes up in Bend, county The city of Bend and unincorporated Deschutes County recorded an increase in lodging taxes in April over April 2009. It was the fifth straight monthly increase in transient room-tax collections for the city and the third for the county over the same months a year earlier, according to information released Thursday by the Central Oregon Visitors Association. Transient room taxes, which are collected on overnight lodging, serve as a barometer for the tourism industry. Lodging taxes collected in Bend increased by about 11 percent in April compared with April 2009. The amount for Deschutes County increased about 7 percent for the same time period. The Riverhouse Hotel & Convention Center, which hosted the Oregon Governor’s Conference on Tourism April 11-13, helped boost the city’s tax collections for the month, according to Alana Audette, COVA’s president and CEO. The Riverhouse reported a 40 percent increase in convention business for the month, said Lara Wettig, Riverhouse marketing director.

Google to turn over data in privacy case Google is bowing to the demands of four European governments and says it will begin surrendering the data it improperly collected over unsecured wireless networks. Eric Schmidt, Google’s chief executive, told The Financial Times in an interview Thursday in London that within the next two days, the company would share the data with regulators in Germany, Spain, France and Italy. The data are thought to include fragments of personal information like e-mail and bank account numbers. Google had previously resisted requests from European officials and privacy advocates to hand over the data, saying it needed time to review legal issues. — Staff and wire reports

Bend toy inventor back in the game Things are Mark Burginger lands a distributor for Qubits heating up after ‘Shark Tank’-related deal falls through for local pellet maker By David Holley The Bulletin

Nearly four months after he appeared on the ABC television show, “Shark Tank,” Mark Burginger has found a distributor for the toy he invented, Qubits Construction Toy. That distributor isn’t a direct result from the deal Burginger made with Daymond John, founder of the FUBU clothing line and one of the “sharks” on the show, however. Burginger’s

deal with John fell through, after John wasn’t able to sell Qubits to any of the nation’s largest toy companies, Burginger said. But his appearance on the show did gain the Bend-based inventor some notoriety, which led to him securing a threeyear distribution contract with Discovery Toys LLC, a California-based company that sells toys in the U.S. and Canada.

ubiel Nunez and his wife purchased their first house because it was in good condition and he was able to negotiate a good price. Never mind that the last resident was killed inside, allegedly by his own wife. “I don’t believe in that kind of stuff like ghosts,” he said of his decision to buy the home in Elmwood Park, N.J. When it comes to homes where horrific murders or violent crimes have occurred, no trends seem to apply as to their fates.

Of those that go on the market, some sell fairly quickly. Others languish or are foreclosed upon, at times becoming the dilapidated, spooky houses that children dare each other to approach. “Some people don’t give it another thought, but for some people, it’s a big deal,” said Bill Hanley, former president of the New Jersey Association of Realtors. “I just believe that there’s a buyer for every home.” A particularly dicey part that real estate agents struggle with is how much information to disclose.

ANNALS OF UNEMPLOYMENT

The Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. — The message was hard to comprehend. Posted on a job board run by a Lake Mary, Fla., company, it advertised a position with Sony Ericsson in Atlanta. But it had a strange twist. If you’re jobless, the ad said, don’t apply. “Candidates MUST be currently working for an original consumer electronics manufacturer in marketing,” said the job listing. “NO EXCEPTIONS.” The language was even stronger in an earlier version of the post. It included this sentence: “No unemployed candidates will be considered at all.” The item, an ad for a marketing communications and public relations chief, was posted by The People Place, which recruits for aerospace, engineering and telecommunications companies. It went up last week and soon set off a small brush fire on employment message boards. “OMG,” wrote Stuart James, of Altamonte Springs, Fla. “Unbelievable.” See Jobless / B2

Small-business owners may find local bankers’ messages reassuring By Adrianne Jeffries The Bulletin

Commercial real estate owners who are upside down on their loans solely because their properties have lost value should not be subjected to higher interest rates or restricted access to credit, according to credit officers from local banks who spoke at a panel discussion on business lending Thursday. That’s reassuring for any borrower who has no trouble making payments on a commercial real estate loan but is worried about the bank’s reaction to the fact that the loan’s outstanding balance may exceed the new value of the property. Federal regulators don’t look at the value of the property if the borrower is current, said Douglas Weld, chief credit officer at LibertyBank. See Bankers / B5 PAID ADVERTISEMENT PAID ADVERTISEMENT

By Karen Sudol

REDMOND — In about 10 days, a startup company expects to begin making a renewable energy product — wood pellets — in the same plant where mill workers once turned logs into plywood. Employees of Pacific Pellet, started by two founders of Oregon Telecom, are conducting tests and readying for production, said President Mark Stapleton. They are fine-tuning the systems that monitor speed, temperature and other aspects of the pelletmaking process, which is mostly automated. “Nobody touches a thing,” Stapleton said. “All this is state of the art.” When production begins, Pacific Pellet will employ eight people in a 60,000-plus-square-foot portion of the former Crown Pacific plywood plant, where 214 employees worked until the company announced the mill’s closure in 1996. The company plans to add a second shift, and possibly a third, Stapleton said. Oregon had two companies producing pellets for fuel, as of 2004, according to the state Department of Energy website, and another making charcoal briquettes. Since then, at least one other company, Woodgrain Millwork in Prineville, has started producing pellets. See Pellets / B5

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — After hemorrhaging jobs for months, the U.S. economy is finally starting to add them. Yet the unemployment rate is not really budging because of people like Regina Myles. Myles, 51, has been out of work for three years. After a grueling job search yielded 150 interviews but no offers, she simply stopped looking last fall. Then this spring, with a $3,000 government-funded grant to help pay for a training course at a local beauty school, she began applying for jobs online and in stores again. “I just know if I am given this chance to finish this course, I can make it,” Myles said. “I feel like it is my time now.” See Discouraged / B2

Officials from the Bend Fire Department, who are working with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Oregon State Police Bomb Squad technicians, have not yet determined the exact cause of the incident at Nosler Inc.’s facility on Southwest Columbia Street. So far, the company has said only that an employee working in an underground ballistics tunnel spotted a flash of light around 2 p.m. Wednesday and pulled a fire alarm. The approximately 100 employees working inside were able to get out before a boom rocked the building. See Explosion / A5

VALLEJO, Calif. — First came the break-in at the combination electronics repair shop and real estate agency. Then came the burglar bars on the store’s plate-glass window. But Jimmy Mozaffar, owner of Data Days, sounds less angry with the criminals than he does with the crime-stoppers here in hardknock Vallejo, the largest city in California history to file for bankruptcy. The thieves made off with laptops, but it was the pared down Police Department — which has lost a third of its officers — that stole Mozaffar’s peace of mind. When Mozaffar called the department to report the burglary last fall, a recording directed him to a website. “Nobody came out,” he said. “They said they’d deal with it.” See Bankrupt / A5

GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. — “Somos amigos,” called Shura Wallin, ducking low into the shade beneath the highway overpass. “We’re friends,” she said again in Spanish, calling out to anyone who might be hiding. “Don’t be afraid.” At a time when state and federal governments are focused on tightening the border to keep out immigrants who cross illegally from Mexico, Wallin and her colleagues help people who make the trip. They leave water and food along well-known foot trails. They distribute maps that show the water sites and search for trekking migrants. Sometimes, they find bodies. Their efforts are at odds

GRANTS PASS — The nation’s ocean research agency has given its final answer on the new home base for its West Coast research fleet, and it is the same as the first answer: the port of Newport on the central Oregon Coast. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its final determination Thursday in the long-running political battle over where the ships would be based after a 2006 dock fire ruled out keeping them in Seattle. Despite objections raised by alternative sites in Washington state and their representatives in Congress, the final analysis found that the Newport site chosen last August still offered the best value to the government, with the highest technical rating and lowest price when compared with sites in Washington. Construction has been going on for months at the Newport site, where members of the Oregon congressional delegation and Gov. Ted Kulongoski joined local officials Thursday for ceremonies marking the decision. “People have been saying about the folks in Newport, ‘You think you’re gonna win this thing, you’re a few fish short of your limit,’” U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., said in a telephone interview. “This was the case of good policy and winning on the merits beating politics.” Wyden added that a pending

Study: Dogs can sniff out some cancers? By Thomas H. Maugh II Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — A team of researchers from Tenon Hospital in Paris reported Tuesday at a San Francisco meeting of the American Urological Association that dogs can be trained to detect the characteristic odor of unique chemicals released into urine by prostate tumors. If developed, the test might be more effective than the PSA test now used because it would have fewer false positives. Many tumors release characteristic chemicals that can be identified by the sensitive canine nose. Lung cancer cells, for example, can release such chemicals into the air of the lungs, and they can then be detected on the victim’s breath. Dr. Jean-Nicolas Cornu of Tenon and his colleagues trained a Belgian Malinois to identify urine from patients with confirmed prostate cancer, then to differentiate those samples from urine from healthy subjects. Finally, they used one urine sample from a prostate cancer victim and four samples from healthy people, asking the dog to choose the correct one. In 66 tests, the dog was correct 63 times. There were three false positives and no false negatives.

Fishing boats dock in Newport. NOAA on Thursday found that Newport offered the highest technical rating and the lowest price compared to sites in Washington state. inspector general’s report could not overturn NOAA’s final determination. Basing four ships, 60 shoreside personnel and 110 crew members at Newport is estimated to pump $19 million a year into the regional economy along the Oregon shore, where tourism has not made up for downturns in logging and commercial fishing during the past two decades. Oregon kicked in $19 million that allowed Newport to significantly reduce its lease bid to $2.6 million a year, compared with $4 million a year for Bellingham, Wash. NOAA has already signed a $52 million, 20-year lease for

the Newport site, and work has started on new shoreside facilities for the fleet. Work on new piers can’t start until November. A spokesman for Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., who called for the inspector general’s report, said the decision was expected but disappointing. “At a time when an investigation into the site selection by the Department of Commerce Office of Inspector General is under way, we should not be committing public funds to development of a home port before we know whether there were problems or irregularities with NOAA’s original decision,” Cantwell spokesman John Diamond said from Washington, D.C.

CHICAGO — By the logic of science, things simply shouldn’t exist. The best scientific minds of several generations have reasoned that shortly after the Big Bang created the universe, matter and antimatter should have wiped each other out. So that explains the global chain reaction of excited emails among physicists last month, after scientists at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory “opened the box” — their jargon for taking a peek at newly crunched data — and raised hopes of some day solving the riddle of existence. “It’s like looking back to the instant where everything began,” said Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist at the sprawling research facility near Batavia, Ill. Simply put, the Fermi team sent protons and antiprotons around its underground Tevatron accelerator ring into a head-on collision, which produced slightly more tiny fragments called “muons” than tiny fragments called “antimuons.” It was a laboratory victory of matter over antimatter, and a minuscule replication of what scientists believe must have happened shortly after the Big Bang, though exactly how matter won out has long confounded them.

Previous results Previous tests slamming such infinitesimal particles together — a proton is one onehundred-thousandth the size of an atom — have produced similar results. But they never have risen above a statistical shadow of doubt for physicists working with computer calculations about particles and interactions they can’t see. By contrast, the latest discovery by Fermilab’s DZero team seems statistically solid. If it makes it past critical peer review, it will lead to a reevaluation of existing theories and, possibly, a deeper understanding of physics and why things exist. It certainly will inspire a barrage of additional supercollider tests, as other labs try to verify the discovery or shoot it down. Either way, it could be one incremental step toward the

holy grail of atomic physics: the long-sought discovery of the elusive “Higgs boson,” a theoretical particle assumed to be the fundamental building block of all matter. “It’ll be written about in physics books a hundred years from now,” said Zoltan Ligeti, a physicist at the California Institute of Technology who was not involved in the Fermilab experiment.

Large Hadron Collider For decades, Fermilab was the world’s pre-eminent center for subatomic particle research. But increasingly, the expectation was that the next big breakthrough in physics would come from a new and more powerful European accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider outside Geneva, which has begun overshadowing Fermi and draining its talent. So scientists at the older facility just west of Chicago have expressed a quiet satisfaction with the home team victory, which could help its efforts to remain relevant and fund-worthy. In a website posting, Fermilab Director Pier Oddone said “I am delighted to see yet another exciting result from the Tevatron.” An official from the U.S. Department of Energy, which funds Fermilab, echoed that pride, saying the “result underlines the importance and scientific potential of the Tevatron program.” The question of existence is something that humans have wondered about ever since there were humans to wonder: “Why is there something rather than nothing?” as the 17th century philosopher Gottfried Leibniz put it. Clearly, things do exist — evidenced by the facility near Batavia, where bison graze above a subterranean, four-mile-circumference accelerator, or the tidy homes in nearby suburbs where Fermilab staff members live. But, theoretically, they shouldn’t. One of physics’ foundation stones is the concept of a symmetrical universe. Everything has its mirror opposite, like humans’ left and right hands. As schoolchildren learn, Newton said every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

T S Japanese Democrats pick Kan for next PM

ISRAEL RAID

Flotilla fatalities said to include U.S. activist

By Martin Fackler New York Times News Service

TOKYO — Japan’s finance minister emerged Thursday as the leading candidate to become the country’s next leader, one day after the abrupt resignation of the unpopular prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama. Apparently caught off guard, Hatoyama’s fellow Democrats have been moving quickly to find a replacement. They face an uphill battle in regaining the momentum they had in August after winning a landslide election victory that ended a half century of virtual one-party rule. Several leading members of the governing Democratic Party threw their support behind the finance minister, Naoto Kan, a sharp-tongued political veteran who has gained prominence by taking on Japan’s powerful bureaucrats. Japanese news reports characterized him as the frontrunner going into an internal party vote to be held today to choose Hatoyama’s successor. The only other candidate to emerge Thursday evening was Shinji Tarutoko, 50, a legislator who leads the environmental policy committee in the lower house of parliament. Although he is relatively unknown, Tarutoko enjoys the support of the party’s shadowy power broker, Ichiro Ozawa. Kan has been a leading critic of Ozawa. In a news conference Thursday night, he said he would aim for a clean politics free from financing scandals.

A relief well is drilled at the work site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on Wednesday.

Effort widens to stop oil leak By Henry Fountain New York Times News Service

As engineers struggled again Thursday to contain the oil leak at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, crews on two floating rigs flanking the spot where the Deepwater Horizon exploded and sank were doing what rig crews normally do: drilling wells. The two wells, aimed at the bottom of the runaway well that has spewed millions of gallons of oil into the gulf, represent the most conventional solution to the disaster and the one that experts say is all but certain to succeed. Once either of the relief wells strikes pay dirt, the plan is to pump heavy drilling mud and cement down it to bring the blowout under control and permanently seal the damaged well.

Officials reported some progress Thursday in the latest effort to place a cap over the well that would funnel at least some of the oil and gas to a ship at the surface. Using robotic submersibles to manipulate 20-foot-long shears, technicians successfully snipped the damaged riser pipe at the wellhead and prepared to lower the cap over it. At a news conference in Metairie, La., Adm. Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard, who is commanding the federal response to the disaster, said the cut was “a significant step forward.” But he warned that because the cut was not as straight as desired, the cap might not fit snugly, increasing the possibility that water might enter along with the oil to form icelike crystals called hydrates.

Given the string of engineering problems so far — the shears were used, for example, because a diamond-laced wire saw had become dull, perhaps from objects pumped into the well as part of an earlier failed effort — the relief well plan has faced its share of skepticism. BP officials say that the first relief well already extends more than 12,000 feet below sea level, about halfway to the target, but because drilling gets slower as a well gets deeper, it is not expected to be finished before August. The second well was started later and is not yet as deep. President Barack Obama said federal officials ordered BP to drill the second well as a backup shortly after the rig exploded April 20; the company said it was planning two wells anyway.

Logs: Coast Guard saw potential threat early By John Solomon and Campbell Robertson New York Times News Service

Shizuo Kambayashi / The Associated Press

Japanese Finance Minister Naoto Kan speaks during a press conference at the Democratic Party of Japan headquarters in Tokyo on Thursday.

Coast Guard officials grasped the potential threat of a catastrophic spill in the first days after the explosion on board the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, estimating that 64,000 to 110,000 barrels a day of crude oil could possibly gush out of the well in the event of a complete blowout, according to Coast Guard logs. The logs provide the most detailed account of the early days of the BP disaster. The estimate of the potential leak, on April 23, three days after the rig exploded, reveals that first responders quickly began to

understand the environmental threat to the Gulf of Mexico when Coast Guard officials detected the first signs of oil appearing on the gulf waters. The official White House timeline first mentions a leak on April 24, four days after the explosion, when undersea robots discovered a plume of oil coming from the riser on the sea floor. Yet oil had been gushing out of the riser from the explosion through the moment the rig sank, and repeated attempts to stop the flow with the blowout preventer had failed. A White House spokesman said the timeline includes language noting that it is not intend-

ed to be a detailed or exhaustive version of events. The White House has repeatedly rejected criticisms from both sides of the political aisle that it did not act quickly or decisively enough in the early days of the BP disaster, noting that the president on April 22 issued a public statement urging the federal government to make the accident its No. 1 priority. The Coast Guard logs were provided to the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit investigative journalism organization, by Rep. Darrell Issa of California, the senior Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

ISTANBUL — Turkish investigators concluded Thursday that one of the nine people killed in an Israeli commando raid on a flotilla of ships heading for Gaza this week was a U.S. citizen of Turkish descent, according to a senior government official. The news added a new diplomatic complexity as Israel struggled to defuse rising international anger over its raid on six ships seeking to break its blockade of the Gaza Strip, where officials from the Hamas movement were reported on Thursday to be resisting Israeli efforts to deliver truckloads of goods seized from the flotilla. The bodies of the nine dead were flown back to Turkey overnight along with hundreds of activists, many of them Turks, who had been detained when the Israeli navy towed the ships to shore on Monday.

Israel resolved on Wednesday to release nearly all of the detainees quickly — including those suspected of attacking its soldiers as they boarded — to prevent further diplomatic damage. But, as coffins bearing the dead wound through a devout neighborhood of Istanbul, accompanied by thousands of Turkish mourners, public anger here seemed undiminished. “Turkey will never forgive this attack,” President Abdullah Gul said on NTV television. “Turkish-Israeli relations can never be as before from now on.” A senior Turkish official, who spoke in return for anonymity under government rules, said Turkish investigators examining the dead had found that one of them was an American of Turkish descent. The official did not identify the U.S. citizen by name. The U.S. Embassy in the capital, Ankara, declined to comment on the case.

Iran pardons protesters By Ali Sheikholeslami Bloomberg News

LONDON — Iran has pardoned or reduced the sentences of 81 people convicted in connection with protests over President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s June 12 reelection. Wednesday’s announcement of the pardons coincided with a request to the government from opposition groups for permission to hold demonstrations to mark the first anniversary of the disputed vote. The opposition alleges Ahmadinejad’s victory was the result of fraud. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei agreed to the pardons and cuts in sentences on the recommendation of the judiciary chief, according to Khamenei’s website. Such actions are traditional to mark a religious or national celebration, in this

case Thursday’s anniversary of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. “Some of them were immediately released last night after the supreme leader’s pardon,” Tehran Prosecutor-General Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi was cited as saying by the state-run Fars news agency Thursday. Last year’s protests began with calls for a ballot recount, and subsequent demands have ranged from an end to the security forces’ use of violence against protesters to changes in Iran’s religion-based political system. About 5,000 people have been arrested, with many later released, and 44 people have died, Iranian authorities said.

N B States plan more spending restraint DALLAS — U.S. states reduced spending for a second consecutive year as the worst U.S. recession since the 1930s cut tax revenue, a survey by two associations found. Governors may struggle to raise spending in fiscal 2011, which begins July 1 for 46 states, as they close deficits without the aid of federal stimulus money that runs out this year, the report by the National Governors Association and National Association of State Budget Officers said. States will have dealt with $296.6 billion of budget deficits from fiscal 2009 to 2012, covered in part by $135 billion of federal money received under stimulus legislation, according to the groups. Governors still face $127.4 billion of deficits for the rest of fiscal 2010, 2011 and 2012.

EPA sets new limit on sulfur dioxide WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday set a new health standard that coal-fired power plants and other industries will have to meet on sulfur dioxide, a pollutant that triggers asthma attacks and causes other respira-

tory problems. The EPA set the new standard within a range that an independent panel of scientists suggested. This marks the first time the standard has been changed since the original one was issued in 1971. The new rule sets the amount at 75 parts per billion over a one-hour period, a level that’s aimed at protecting people who go outdoors from short-term exposures. The EPA said that even brief exposure could create health problems, especially for children, people with asthma and older people.

Arizona governor asks for more border aid WASHINGTON — Facing off over illegal immigration, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told President Barack Obama that Americans “want our border secured” and called Thursday for completion of a separating fence. Obama underscored his objections that the tough immigration law she signed is discriminatory. Emerging from the half-hour session, Brewer said Obama had assured her that the majority of the 1,200 National Guard troops he is sending to the U.S.-Mexico border would be going to her state. — From wire reports

Look at the forklifts. Gone. – Sen. John Tester, while pointing to charred hulks of machinery in what had once been a tool shed during a tour of the Lolo Complex fire with Gov. Steve Bullock on Wednesday

“The good news is we actually are the top priority in the nation for resources,” incident commander Greg Poncin said during a briefing with Gov. Steve Bullock and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester at the Lolo command post. “So that bodes pretty well. The bad news is, the well is still pretty dry.” The governor and senator came to thank the firefighters and offer what resources their respective offices could provide. In Bullock’s case, a contingent of 90 state National Guard troops, including two Black Hawk helicopter teams, will be in place on Thursday. Tester asked for input on how federal logistics were working out. Then both men joined Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen to see firsthand what the Lolo Creek Complex had already done on its 8,598-acre rampage. A 12-mile drive west on U.S. Highway 12 started in a bucolic rural landscape that soon switched to moonscape. The first roadside smokes could be seen on the hillsides north of Fort Fizzle, just four miles from Lolo. From there to Woodman Elementary School, much of the roadside was deliberately blackened by fire crews who had burned out grass and brush before embers from higher up the mountain could torch the creek bottom. Some spot fires did make it down the slopes on Tuesday night, forcing closure of Highway 12 just as Montana Department of Transportation officials hoped to start an escort car convoy to restore traffic to the Idaho border. “We had fire burning under wood decks, and under people’s eaves yesterday,” fire operations section chief Mark Goeller said Wednesday

On the drive up the highway, several houses had blackened lawns and trees, but appeared otherwise undamaged. “A lot of that was good luck and good use of defensible space,” Ibsen said during the tour. “And there were fire trucks around lots and lots of houses last night.” At Mill Creek Road, eight miles west of Lolo, Ibsen said the forest was “a spectacular show of Roman candles” as trees torched along the hillside. Just beyond, Woodman School’s white belfry gleamed in the sun against a still-burning slope of timber. Fire crews had set burnouts along much of that area to keep the runaway fire from getting the upper hand. Next to the school, a herd of 150 cattle that had been evacuated from one pasture south of the highway to another on the north side grazed peacefully as trees burned just a few hundred yards away. A line of sprinklers kept their grass green and defended. Elk Meadows Road marked the spot where

ground crews made a desperate stand to check Monday’s firestorm. They successfully burned out much of the foliage on the road’s western side just as

the fire was at the height of its destruction. For the next three miles, devastation scarred both sides of the highway. “Look at the

capriciousness of the fire,” Ibsen said as he headed up the driveway of a ravaged home. “The little guesthouse and garage didn’t get it.” But the main house had nothing left standing but a stone chimney and a brick deck. “Look at the forklifts,” Tester said, pointing to the charred hulks of machinery in what had once been a tool shed. “Gone.” Nails and bolts littered the walkways around houses where every scrap of burnable material was vaporized. A nearby satellite dish looked untouched. “And all you have left is the barn,” Bullock observed. Ash was still falling on the scene as several trees on the hillsides flickered with stubborn flame. Sheriff’s deputies confirmed five homes on four properties burned to the ground in the fire, along with numerous outbuildings, vehicles and other possessions. In one case, a home with a wood shingle roof, outbuilding full of firewood and several other structures stood in the middle of its green lawn while the property 50 feet to the west was surrounded by trees and burned to the foundation. “This is a perfect example of what a little green grass and cutting the limbs up on the trees can do,” Ibsen said, pointing to the two homesites. “Green grass, no green grass.” In the blackened roadsides, Missoula Rural Electric Co-op and Blackfoot Telecommunications Group repair crews were reconnecting burned cables and replacing

power poles. The electricity lines had been burned through since Monday, depriving not only the Lolo Creek area but also the Powell Ranger District compound across the border in Idaho. Around Camp Creek Road and Bear Creek Road, the hillsides looked sterilized. Yet the creek bottoms still had green vegetation, and numerous homes survived the fire’s hottest thrust. Yellowshirted firefighters roamed from driveway to driveway, clearing tottering trees and mopping up smoldering hot spots. “God love ’em, but I don’t know what makes anyone want to be a firefighter,” Ibsen said. “Especially a wildland firefighter. It’s just nonstop.”

two miles downwind from the fire that evening while briefing the governor. “When humidities are in the teens, spotting is a very real problem,” Finney said. “In our forests here, most of the embers tend to be small twigs, round and glowing. They don’t last for long, but they may go several miles in extreme conditions.” Finney brings up the energy release component – an index based on the energy potential of fuels as related to dryness. Known as the ERC, it isn’t as high this year as last, Finney notes, and many fires haven’t experienced the run or intensity made by the Lolo fires this week. But the recipe for fire hasn’t changed since the dawn of man – fuel, oxygen and heat. Yet the science behind the study of fires has jumped lightyears ahead, thanks to new technology and the work of the Rocky Mountain Research Station. “It’s the same old ingredients – there’s nothing new here,” Finney said. “The thing we have to realize is that fires are inevitable. They’re impossible to completely exclude from the landscape. “By trying to do that and doing it so successfully, what we’ve done is saved up the fires for the worst conditions. When you get rid of all the fires under moderate conditions, all you have left are the extreme ones.”

Baucus, official put focus on Libby By VINCE DEVLIN of the Missoulian

LIBBY – Marilyn Tavenner has a picture of Lester Skramstad on her desk in Washington, D.C., even though she’s never met him – not in this life, anyway – and never will. She came as close as she could Wednesday morning. Tavenner, barely four months into her tenure as the nation’s top administrator for an $820 billion federal agency, the Centers for Medicare and

Head of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gets firsthand look at asbestos problems Medicaid Services, stood at Skramstad’s grave in the Libby Cemetery on a beautiful August morning with U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. Skramstad is one of an estimated 3,000 victims of asbestos-related illnesses stemming from a vermiculite mine once operated in Libby by W.R. Grace & Co. – and one of more than 400 who have died because of it.

“Max wanted her to meet his friend Les,” said Gayla Benefield, one of Libby’s many asbestos victims, who organized the cemetery portion of Tavenner’s visit. Benefield’s father, Perley Vatland, worked in the mine for 19 years, was diagnosed in 1971 and died in 1974. Like Skramstad, who died in 2007, Vertland unknowingly dragged the deadly dust home from work with him – as did

many of the miners – and infected his family. Baucus met Skramstad over huckleberry pie and coffee in Benefield’s home in 2000, where about 20 local people “described the awful legacy of W.R. Grace,” according to Baucus’ office. The senator calls his meeting Skramstad a pivotal moment in his decision to champion the cause of Libby victims in the years since.

It was Baucus who gave Tavenner the picture of Skramstad in May, Baucus who grilled Tavenner about Medicare holding up other victims’ settlement payments during her confirmation hearings that same month, and Baucus who engineered her first-ever trip to Montana. “The first time I met Senator See LIBBY, Page B5

Research incorporates many different careers, Truitt said. Engineers, pilots, scientists, students and others make research possible, she said. “There’s truly a community that’s involved in a research institute,” she said. To illustrate that, community mentors will be available to talk with kids about careers and explain exhibits at spectrUM.

Community support helped create the University of Montana spectrUM Discovery Area’s expanded exhibits and space in downtown Missoula, and community support will help open the doors during a grand opening event Friday. Three hundred pairs of scissors are waiting so visitors can help cut the ribbon at 218 E. Front St. at 5 p.m. Friday is the first time the public will see the finished museum, which is an expanded version of the discovery area that opened on the University of Montana campus in 2007. The campus site will continue to be used as a gallery space, with hands-on exhibits for the university community, and for field trips, clubs and summer camps. At the downtown location, families can explore the

advantage of a poorly managed mineral lease program. The fault lies with the federal Bureau of Land Management, the primary coal-leasing agency in Montana and Wyoming, he said. A BLM spokeswoman in Billings said the agency is “committed to obtaining fair market value for federal coal resources” in the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming.

The former president of the Missoula Horsemen’s Council, who stands charged with felony forgery and deceptive practices, said Wednesday that the accusations stem from the group’s infighting and disorganization – not from any misuse of county funds. Barbara Howell said that during an irrigation expansion project, she submitted a “pile of receipts” to Missoula County for reimbursement, and included in the receipts were two estimates of work and equipment provided by Mountain Supply and Ag Sales in the amount of $980.90 and $1,830.15. The council rents the Missoula Equestrian Park – which is county property. In the lease agreement, the county agreed to reimburse the council for two-thirds of all approved irrigation expansion projects. According to the affidavit outlining the charges against Howell, the checks allegedly sent to the businesses for irrigation equipment and work were forgeries, not true payments. “No such checks had ever been paid by the Horsemen’s Council to the named suppliers and no such debts for irrigation had ever been incurred,” the affidavit stated.

Experts: Government underpricing Montana coal By MIKE DENNISON Missoulian State Bureau

HELENA – A lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America by five women who were sexually abused by a Kalispell Scout leader in the 1970s will move forward after a judge rejected arguments by the organization that time had run out on their claims. The attorney for the women, who are now in their 50s, said District Judge James Reynolds’ ruling means the case is now likely to go trial unless a settlement is negotiated. “Trial would be the best course in terms of getting the full story made public. A problem like child sexual abuse within a trusted institution can only be solved when it is fully understood, and can only be fully understood when the facts are all made public,” attorney Gilion Dumas said in an email to the Associated Press Tuesday. However, the court will likely require both sides to go through mediation or a settlement conference, she said. “If a negotiated settlement would help any of these women heal, then we must do what is best for them,” Dumas said.

Confession reaction during 12-step program meeting riles readers Dear Abby: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his JEANNE Narcotics PHILLIPS Anonymous (NA) meetings.

Bend girl out of spelling bee By Keith Chu The Bulletin

WASHINGTON — Bend’s Hannah Allison spelled both of her words correctly in the first two oral rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday, but she still fell short of qualifying for the semifinals today. Even so, Hannah, 13, said she wasn’t disappointed. After all, she faced some pretty tough competition. “I knew it was going to be hard because 70 people had been here before,” she said, after the results were announced. Hannah, a home-schooled seventh-grader, came through on the big stage. After starting the day with a breakfast

of a bagel, watermelon and peaches, and about an hour and a half of studying, she spelled “efficacy” with little difficulty. Before and after her turn at the microphone, Hannah intently watched other spellers, sometimes spelling along with them. She did it, Hannah said, because “I just like to spell.” And after the first round, Hannah got a picture with the bee’s pronouncer, Jacques Bailly, who she knew from watching past bees. By the third round, the normal bounds of the English language were apparently too constraining on the competition’s supply of fiendishly difficult words. See Bee / A4

Area schools face tough decisions State cuts put districts deeper in the red By Patrick Cliff and Sheila G. Miller The Bulletin

School districts around the region were dealt a blow last week when the state announced further funding cuts.

Bend-La Pine Schools must cut about $6.5 million from its approximately $120 million budget, which the board approved last week with various union concessions and funding cuts. Superintendent Ron Wilkinson said district officials will offer a formal recommendation for the new cuts to the school board on Tuesday.

A day after a massive explosion ripped through a Bend bullet factory, investigators were back on the scene Thursday, looking for clues about what led to the blast — and figuring out how to safely clean up the mess. By late afternoon, crews were removing hazardous materials and using heavy equipment to take apart the large sections of the building that collapsed in the blast. Debris scattered in a nearby parking lot and down the street was marked with flags.
