Mutual Materials of Bend donated the pavers and stone. Oregon Youth ChalleNGe committed to providing labor as a community service project. Matt Haney, a fifth-grade teacher at Rosland, helped coordinate the project with Ayres.

Everything came together over the last three weeks in October. Materials were delivered and much of the preliminary foundation work was done. Volunteers got the dirt leveled and prepared for irrigation lines. Some of the beds have been completed, and the ground has been covered with insulated tarpaulins in some areas so construction can start as soon as possible in the spring.

Nelson aka Victoria L. Bearse and Robert E. Midland Funding LLC v. Oregonian reporters have reviewed thousands of state contracts, some of which appear to contradict the penny-pinching messages coming from state leaders.

Others simply show a state willing to pay top dollar when it needs outside help. The review also found money is flowing out of state. No contract bidding Sometimes there was no competition. State law that requires competitive bidding to keep costs down is riddled with exceptions, and some deals go through without public bids.

Lawmakers, both conservative and liberal, and union. Recent forecasts show they may have to cut more. But amid the austerity, The Oregonian has found plenty of business as usual. Police officers arrest a protester in the Occupy Portland encampment on Sunday.

Several hundred protesters — some wearing goggles and gas masks — marched through downtown Portland on Sunday, hours after riot police drove Occupy Portland demonstrators out of a pair of weeks-old encampments in nearby parks. Police moved in shortly before noon and drove protesters into the street after dozens remained in the camp in defiance of city officials. More than 50 protesters were arrested in the afternoon police action, Portland police. At an impromptu news conference, the mayor defended his order to clear the park, saying it is his job to enforce the law and keep the peace.

That latter has many worried. The United States will not be safe if such deep cuts go into effect, they say. Yet surely cuts can be made without the sky falling. As Republican candidate Mitt Romney pointed out recently, the U. Navy alone has some 24, civilian employees in its purchasing department. Today the Navy commissions just nine ships per year. Even the military recognizes the scope of its bloat problem, apparently. In August, according to the Washington Post, the U. Army announced it would reduce its civilian payroll by 8, The Air Force, though it is adding several thousand jobs, is making cuts that will offset the additions and see civilian employment in that.

Payments to attend college are a huge lure, no doubt. In addition, veterans can be eligible for special home loan programs, for medical programs and for other services. A person applied for unemployment benefits, received them, and then months later could be asked to give the money back. No fraud involved, just a re-evaluation as more information came in. The new law, which took effect June 23, was sponsored by Sen.

It requires the applicant to demonstrate that paying back the money would constitute an undue hardship. Federal rules require the state to make a decision about benefits within 14 days of receiving an application, according to Craig Spivey, public affairs specialist with the Oregon Employment Department. Spivey said that philosophy differs from some other states, such as California, where applicants can wait for months before receiving any benefits.

Feels like the right balance. Preventing fraudulent payments and securing their repayment will gain more than pursuing those who innocently received mistaken payments. Forest Service ignoring public on plan for a new sno-park By Rick Sironen t is very interesting that after the comments about the Draft Environmental Statement DEIS for the proposed new Kapka Sno-park were received, the Forest Service appears to have decided to go ahead with the project.

Of the comments given to the Forest Service, over 1, were for option one do not build Kapka while 61 were for option two build Kapka , and 7 were for options three and four lesser build. The Forest Service says it is counting only comments. What has happened to the plus that said they want Dutchman Snopark expanded before Kapka is built? It seems the Forest Service changes the rules to fit their desired outcome.

Times have changed and the Forest Service needs to spend its funds where they will do the most for everyone. At the Trail User Group meeting on Sept. I guess when the numbers do not work for you, you change the rules! Tinderholt said the Forest Service is now also looking at building a sno-park on the west side of the Sunriver road for a dog park.

She said this would not require a new DEIS. Great, two new snoparks with one DEIS. Does anyone over there know what is going on? We were being told this even before the DEIS came out!

I guess it is the job of the Forest Service to do what it wants, regardless of public input. Kapka was a bad idea that the Forest Service started over 10 years ago, and it is still a bad idea. It is mentioned by the Forest Service over and over again. Real users, folks who actually use the snopark system do not have the same problems and issues as those who sometimes pretend to represent these users.

Most people agree that Dutchman Sno-park needs to be enlarged. You are always going to have the extremists who want everything their way, but we need to work together and expand Dutchman Sno-park for the majority of all users. Just up the road is over , acres of wilderness, with some of the best backcountry skiing around, but we have very limited parking at this time to access this land in the winter. With all we are told about global warming, why would anyone not build a new sno-park at the highest elevation possible?

Hoover was married to his job and zealously protective of his public image. He lived in an era when being outed as gay would cost anyone his career and reputation, and he was not one to risk such consequences.

The story that Hoover, a lifelong bachelor, participated in cross-dressing all-male sex parties in New York hotel rooms, as reported by British writer Anthony Summers in a biography, has been widely debunked by historians.

Hoover and Tolson worked together more than. Hoover, at his death, left Tolson most of his estate. Their relationship, by all appearances, was stable, discreet and long-lasting.

But what they did physically behind closed doors, if anything, was between them. Hoover had particularly good relationships with at least two presidents he served under: Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. Of the others, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Kennedy and Richard Nixon all considered sacking him, but, files aside, they had good political reasons for keeping Hoover. Even in the s, he had a strong public image as an honest, competent law enforcement technocrat.

Still, Hoover built his FBI files into an intimidating weapon, not just for fighting crime but also for bullying government officials and critics and destroying careers. Hoover was a coward. Instead, he took a draft-exempt job at the Justice Department. He relished the pomp. Rather than fleeing the draft, the more likely reason that Hoover took the Justice Department job in was that his year-old father, Dickerson Naylor Hoover, who suffered from mental illness, had been forced to leave his job as a government clerk without a pension, making young J.

Edgar financially responsible for the family. Hoover was African American. There are two theories that Hoover had African American heritage. One has it that he was born to an African American mother and secretly adopted by the Hoover family, a theory based on discrepancies in certain birth and census records.

However, genealogist George Ott investigated the claim, failed to substantiate it, and said he believes it to be false. McGhee, an African American, claims that, based on family stories and genealogical records, she and Hoover had a common ancestor, a great-grandfather, making him a dis-. Some mixing in his family tree is a possibility but remains unproven.

Hoover leaves a bipolar legacy. For better or worse, he built the FBI into a modern, national organization stressing professionalism and scientific crime-fighting. For most of his life, Americans considered him a hero. He made the G-Man brand so popular that, at its height, it was harder to become an FBI agent than to be accepted into an Ivy League college.

But he also stands as a reminder that 48 years of power concentrated in one person is a recipe for abuse. Ackerman, a Washington, D. Hoover and the Red Scare, After military service, John went to the University of Oregon, graduating from the School of Business in In , he moved to Coos Bay, OR as an assistant manager of the company. He then received his first store manager position in While Store Manager at Southcenter, he achieved a very important milestone of his career; his store was the first to reach annual sales of 50 million dollars.

This occurred on January, 21 John and Helen moved to Bend, Oregon in He was a long-time member of the First Presbyterian Church and was a past board member of Awbrey Glen Homeowners Association and various other associations.

John or "Papo" to his beloved grandchildren, lived his life to the fullest and will be deeply missed by whomever he touched with his affection, compassion, generosity, humor and love.

John is survived by Helen, his wife, of 63 years; a son, Bradley Backlund and daughter-in -law, Cynthia of Eugene, Oregon; a daughter, Kathy Danielson and son-in-law Stan of Portland, Oregon; and daughter, Karen Flaten of Kennewick, Washington; seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

Across the Columbia River in Southeast Washington, work to rid the highly contaminated Hanford nuclear reservation of pollutants will continue for decades, but federal stimulus dollars spurred the completion of some projects and more completions are expected in months to come. The success of those efforts means thousands of job losses in communities that shined through the economic downturn and a major shift for a region long fueled by federal dollars.

Fred Kremmer, 49, of Richland, Wash. There were layoffs, but new jobs always followed — until he was let go again in September. Work shifted to cleaning up the highly contaminated site in the s. The number of employees there has averaged about 10, for. Work to empty underground tanks of radioactive waste and to glassify that waste will continue for decades at Hanford, but more layoffs are expected next year and beyond, as other cleanup projects get completed and cleanup dollars decline.

Work to incinerate the weapons began seven years ago to meet a deadline imposed by international treaty, and it was completed last month.

Elliott and Scott must live in the house for a year to show it truly passes the test. When Howard Abrams, a software engineer in Beaverton, wanted to teach his daughter, now 10, and son, now 8, how to program computers, he thought of the fun he had playing with Logo, the first programming language he learned.

Now there are a lot of differTECH ent options. The fun, he said, is contagious. New and more sophisticated tools are changing the way that the next generation learns to program computers.

Children can now create elaborate scenes and games without the cryptic commands that were once the only way to tell computers what to do. The most talented children can also use some of the sophisticated tools normally used by professional programmers, because the tools are now often easy enough for someone to pick up with only a few months of study.

He estimated that there are about 2, new Scratch projects created every day, and many are based on the work of other students. The ghostly conifers found on chilly, wind-swept peaks like this may well be among the earliest victims of a warming climate.

Even in the Northwest, rising SCIENCE temperatures at higher elevations have brought hundreds of thousands of whitebark pines in contact with a deadly predator — the mountain pine beetle — that is helping drive this odd tree toward extinction. Mountain pine beetles are probably bestknown here as the trunk-girdling devils that have reddened and deadened millions of acres of lodgepole, exposing the Northwest to a greater potential for cataclysmic wildfires.

There was no party or cake for Megan. When I took over a card and a small gift, her mom thanked me but said the day was too sad for Megan to celebrate her birthday. She said they had never done so, not even on an alternate date. But I was flabbergasted that they would act this way. Megan was allowed to accept my gift and thanked me, but her mom made it clear this was to be an exception to the rule.

Take your time to form a response; practice detachment. Good will comes forward when you become less incisive and far more easygoing. If you are single, you will attract someone quite unusual. This bond easily could evolve into a romance. If you are attached, planning a special trip or scheduling a seminar together will bond you even more. Dropping either-or thinking could be the first step in finding a resolution to the conflict.

Let others see your determination. Brainstorm with a trusted friend. The unpredictability exists to help you revise your thinking where it might be antiquated. Listen to an associate who has a different outlook. Once you gain greater clarity, you will be able to make changes that add to your security and ability to function. Let go of a controlling individual, knowing you cannot change this person.

Pay bills, then decide. Though you might have a tight agreement, when one person radically changes, the agreement might no longer be functional. Ask yourself if this is a possibility. Vanish while you can. Allow at least 10 days before the desired date of publication. Ongoing listings must be updated monthly. You might need to decide what you are willing to do to further a goal. You could be most uneasy with what is coming up. Hook up with a pal. Catch up on news. You might feel that if anything is going to be done properly, you will have to do it yourself.

Perhaps you need to work on your delegating skills. Look at how you communicate. A meeting or male friend drives many of your actions right now. Put on some dreamy music. Close relating draws strong results. A partner and those you deal with on a daily basis understand what is happening and support you. Once you relax, you will see the situation in a different light. Touch base with several people in the know or who you respect. You can see options that, up till now, were not part of your mind-set.

A partner or associate will pitch in and help you clear out more than you anticipated. You are coming from an anchored point of view. Be positive, not rigid. You will want to avoid a power play if possible. If you must, turn away from matters of control. Team up with several creative people, and a solution can be found. Someone lets you know how dissatisfied he or she is. Choose not to respond. A friend changes his or her tune.

Only three projects have met all the requirements of the Living Building Challenge, according to the institute, which created it.

But the beetles also are whittling away at whitebark in Northwest areas once thought safe from bugs. When it comes to the number of acres or trees killed by beetles and an invasive fungus called white pine blister rust, hard data typically requires aerial surveys and is frustratingly inexact. Researchers instead focus on trend lines.

And in the Northwest, they all point in one direction. A study in the mids showed whitebark trees had declined by 41 percent in the Western Cascades. Tree declines throughout Washington and Oregon hovered around 35 percent. In the coastal range and the Olympics, blister rust infection ranged from 4 to 49 percent. Nearly 80 percent of the whitebark in Mount Rainier National Park are infected. Whitebark deaths in North Cascades National Park doubled in the last five years. She authored a report for the U.

Fish and Wildlife Service this summer that concluded whitebark pine across the West belongs on the Endangered Species List. Knotty, silvery whitebark pines are stubby, crooked, deformed by blustery winds and rarely top 80 feet. No smoking will be allowed onsite. The challenge also comes with a lengthy list of requirements for building materials.

All wood must be certified under Forestry Stewardship Council standards, or reclaimed. PVC pipe is not allowed. Some raw materials must come from sites within certain geographic limits of the job site.

A single bird can store 98, seeds a season. Many cached seeds are dug up by black bears, squirrels, chipmunks and other birds. But what remains produces a new generation of trees, which may live years or more. In a region that relies on mountain snows for its water, whitebark pines help hold moisture until late spring. When female pine beetles land in a host, they release pheromones that attract thousands more bugs, which mate and tunnel into the tree.

The young later eat tree tissue used to transport water and nutrients. Then the tree dies. Beetles are an essential part of lodgepole or ponderosa forests, killing off weak or older stands, which then burn.

Fire helps release seeds for the forest to regrow. During warm periods, the beetles reproduce faster, which can spur epidemic attacks like the unprecedented one currently under way across the West. But in whitebark pine, beetle epidemics historically have been rare because the trees appear in places too cold for bugs.

They seek to show the connection between people, their buildings and development. Despite the challenges that will surface as construction continues, however, the couple made it clear that obtaining their permits and starting construction marked a milestone. In , the U. Fish and Wildlife Service reported, beetles killed whitebark pine trees across half a million acres in the West — the most, at the time, since record-keeping began. Two years later, beetles killed trees on , acres. And unlike lodgepole, whitebark pines produce few seed cones and do so late in life.

For whitebark pine, most signs are troubling. Blister rust, a fungus brought from overseas a century ago, is epidemic. Research on transplanting those strains has been encouraging. And weak trees are more susceptible to beetles. Still, whitebark is a survivor. While some creatures may migrate in response to a changing climate, whitebark pine has been doing so through the ages.

It has moved ever higher on the landscape to avoid competition with other trees. But that option may not be available for long. And it has nowhere else to go. Someone would do something different, all would gather around, see it, and then go back to their own.

The system emphasizes logical thinking and sidesteps the coding errors that occur when a misspelling or an errant comma sends the computer into a petulant standoff. Caitlin Kelleher, a professor at Washington University, worked on creating this environment for simplifying storytelling when she was a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University.

Older students in middle school or high school can go further and learn the computer languages used by professionals to build websites and databases. Of these, the languages that control how Web pages arrange information are some of the most accessible, because they provide more control over where words and images are positioned. New York Times News Service. The system leads the student with text-based interaction instead of icons, a method that is much closer to what many programmers experience.

It also forces the students to be more attentive to punctuation and syntax. Many of the grown-up languages have simplified versions for beginners. Just Basic is one of the newest versions of the Basic language, itself a project designed long ago to make programming easier.
