Where the buffalo roam

Trial date set for Rainbow Ag, UUSD litigation

Attorney's representing Rainbow Construction Company and the Ukiah Unified School District will square off in court early next year if money matters aren't resolved beforehand during mediation. Mendocino Superior Court Judge Richard Henderson on Friday set their trial date for Jan. 8, 2007. The court date stems from a lawsuit filed by Rainbow against Ukiah Unified in December of 2005. At the time, Rainbow was seeking $2.7 million compensation from the school district for the additional time taken to complete the $13 million dollar project. Today, the construction company is seeking damages in the neighborhood of $6 million, according to Lew Chichester, Rainbow partner and Grace Hudson Elementary School project manager. "It started off a year ago. At that time to quantify our expenses we arrived at the $2.7 million claim, which would have been a fair compensation at that time, but over a year has passed... we have experienced losses and damages on top of that. Primarily it's loss of our business income, that is in the neighborhood of another $3 million of losses and damages; that is now part of our lawsuit. There's still cost analysis that needs to be done to verify these numbers, but that's what it seems to us, at this time, our damages our," Chichester said. "If we can get a reasonable settlement and pay all our bills we will certainly be able to avoid bankruptcy," he added. Construction of the Grace Hudson Elementary School began in June of 2002 and, under contract, was reportedly scheduled to open about 15 months later. Due to delays, it took an additional year before the school could be occupied in Fall of 2004. Rainbow blames faulty architectural plans for the delay and since the architect - TLCD Architecture of Santa Rosa -- is the school district's agent, Rainbow is suing the

Above, a buffalo approaches Vaughn Scott's truck as Scott makes his way around the ranch to feed the animals. Scott has worked on the ranch for the last six years and has come to know all the animals and their personalities. Below, Scott, Ranch Foreman at the J Bar S Ranch, watches a group of buffalo during feeding time at the ranch. The ranch is home to about 75-80 buffalo at a given time, ranging from baby calves to full grown bulls. At bottom, Vaughn Scott fills buckets with feed for the buffalo. The ranch is the largest producer of buffalo in the state.

Buffalo, buffalo, where for art thou buffalo? Well in the state of California, specifically in Mendocino County, J Bar S Ranch has bison. "The real term used by ranchers and people in the business is bison," said Jim Lawson owner of J bar S Ranch. "People outside of the business usually call them buffalo." Buffalo are bison and bison are buffalo to erase any confusion. Lawson bought his first piece of land off of Highway 20 in 1966 and now owns about 1,000 acres for his ranch. He was in the construction business and commuted from San Jose to build his ranch and home here in Ukiah. "I am a country boy at heart and my dream was to have a ranch," Lawson said. Lawson started his bison business in 1986. "We started with a cow, calf and a bull. Then we got up to10 head, then we got to 20 then we eventually got to 100 and that was a little too much for the ranch." He only herds buffalo and has between 75 to 80 head on his ranch which keep him and his five other ranch hands busy. "We take a tremendous amount of pride in this ranch and our bison," he said. Buffalo are wild animals and can range from a 2,200pound bull to a mature cow of 1800 pounds so you want to give them their space because they are very strong animals. "You don't really herd bison," Lawson said. "You just get behind them and try and steer them in the direction you want to go.

Sheriff's office hires six new employees

They are usually pretty docile animals but they aren't pets." J Bar S Ranch offers many things to people interested in buffalo or their biproducts "We have tours of the ranch," Lawson said. "We have a vehicle called the Tatonka Wagon that fits about 10 people in it and Tatonka is the Sioux word for buffalo. We take them right into the herds and it usually lasts about two hours." Lawson also has a lake on the ranch that has events like marriages and has gotten well know throughout the area. "It's nice to be well known and have people use your ranch as a landmark." J Bar S Ranch also has a store where you can find anything bison. "We just got into the meat business about three years ago and just

With the hiring of two new patrol deputies and four new sheriffs technicians, the Mendocino County Sheriffs Office is that much closer to the filling open staff positions. The two new patrol deputies are Billy Arms and Mark Potts. Arms was already employed by the MCSO as a corrections deputy. Acting-Sheriff Kevin Broin said the department sponsored Arms at the police academy in Santa Rosa so he could move to patrol. Corrections deputies do not require the same amount of training as patrol deputies. Broin said this allows MCSO to hire qualified applicants to work in the jail who can attend academy and make the jump to patrol if they wish. Potts is a former officer from Trinity County. When budget cutbacks there reduced the scope of his job, Potts took a job in Arizona but he wanted to return to work in Northern California, Broin said. "He's a veteran officer, it's a good pick-up for us," he said. Both new deputies still have between three and four months of training before they can be assigned to their posts. Arms will be working out of the Willits office while Potts will be posted in Ukiah. The sheriff's office also hired four new sheriff's technicians; Glenda Mondragon, Regina Piehoff, Aaron Branscomb and Candice Welsh. The four will work in the booking area to allow corrections deputies to spend more time working with inmates at the jail, Broin said "They'll be doing bookings to free up the bottleneck in the jail," he said. Hiring more employees for the booking area has been proposed as one short term solution for the jail while the county studies the feasibility of building a new jail such as the $123 million dollar Integrated Justice Center proposed in the Criminal Justice Master Plan. This brings the number of hires the sheriff's office has made in 2006 to 15. There are still four open positions in corrections and five open positions on patrol. The sheriff's office is also hoping to hire an additional technician. "It's what I've been doing since I took office," Broin said. "I'm trying to stabilize the work force." Money for these additional hires has been budgeted for in the next fiscal year. The sheriff's office also promoted MCSO Corrections Corporal John Bednar to the rank of sergeant. Bednar has been working with the corrections department since October 1996 and has been a corporal for the last five years. Ben Brown can be reached at [email protected]

5-year-old child injured in dog attack

By BEN BROWN The Daily Journal

CLEMENT (CHUCK) AMERICO GALLI Clement (Chuck) Americo Galli passed away May 31, 2006 in Chico, California age 78. Born in San Francisco, California in 1928 to Lina and Giuldo Galli, who emigrated from Fivizzano, Italy in 1946. Chuck moved to Ukiah in 1948. Chuck served in the US Navy aboard the USS Lexington during WWII. Upon returning

A dog that bit a young child in an apartment at 625 N. State St. is being held by Mendocino County Animal Control on a 10-day quarantine, said Ukiah Police Sgt. Greg Heitkamp. The five-year-old victim, Bradely Pino, was in the apartment of the dog's owner on Sunday at approximately 2:30 p.m. with other children preparing to go to the fair. According to witness reports, Pino tried to take a bone away from the dog who nipped the boy on his right cheek, Heitkamp said. The boy suffered five puncture wounds on his right cheek. Pino's parents took him to the Ukiah Valley Medical Center for treatment. Heitkamp said Pino was walking and talking when he arrived at the hospital and did not appear badly hurt. The case is still under investigation and no official determination has been made as to weather or not the dog is vicious or weather attack was unprovoked. The dog, a Siberian

Husky/Chow mix, has a history of bites, but Heitkamp said this does not necessarily mean the dog is vicious. In situations where the dog attacked people before, it has bitten people who threatened the dog's owner. "You can hardly fault the dog for protecting it's owner," Heitkamp said. The dog is being held by animal control on a 10-day quarantine, after which the court will have 10-days to decide whether the dog should receive a vicious animal designation. The police report, as well as other evidence, will be put before a judge who will make the final decision. Punishments can range from restrictions on where the dog can be, and how it must be secured, to an order to destroy the animal. Heitkamp said there have been no arrests made in connection with this incident. "Our main concern is making sure the animal is not vicious and making sure it does not attack anyone in the future," Heitkamp said. Ben Brown can be reached at [email protected]

Garcia regains Peru presidency in runoff

LIMA, Peru (AP) -- Former President Alan Garcia staged a remarkable political comeback in Peru's runoff election, beating a retired army lieutenant to regain control of the country 16 years after his first term ended in economic ruin and rebel violence.W Garcia's victory Sunday was a blow to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who had endorsed Ollanta Humala, a political upstart many Peruvians saw as dangerous to democracy. "I want our party this time to demonstrate to the Peruvian people, who have called it to the highest responsibilities, that it will not convert the state into booty," said Garcia, referring to the widespread corruption that marked his first term from 198590, when tens of thousands of party members landed state jobs. Garcia said voters had sent an overwhelming message to Chavez that they rejected the "strategy of expansion of a militaristic, retrograde model that he has tried to impose in South America." Chavez extended his regional influence last year with the election of a loyal ally, Evo Morales, as Bolivia's president. Like Morales, Humala had pledged to punish a corrupt political establishment and redistribute wealth to his country's poor Indian and mestizo majority.

family members, including three young children, in their home. Desmond Turner, a 28-year-old prison parolee, was held without bond Sunday on seven charges of murder and one charge of robbery, jail records indicated. Formal charges likely would be filed Tuesday, Marion County prosecutor Carl Brizzi said. "This crime hits you viscerally. It gets you in the gut," Brizzi told Indianapolis television station WXIN at a memorial service for the victims. Brizzi said he would seek the death penalty for Turner, who finished serving a 3 1/2-year prison term on drug and weapons charges last fall. Turner surrendered to authorities Saturday night at a fastfood restaurant after a two-day manhunt.

Canada police use sting in terror arrests

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (AP) -- The Royal Canadian Mounted Police itself delivered three tons of potential bombmaking material to a group that authorities said wanted to launch a string of attacks inspired by al-Qaida, according to a news report. The Toronto Star said Sunday the sting unfolded when investigators delivered the ammonium nitrate to the group of Muslim Canadians, then moved in quickly on what officials called a homegrown terror ring. The newspaper said that investigators learned of the group's alleged plan to bomb targets around Ontario, then controlled the sale and transport of the fertilizer. Authorities refused to discuss the Star's story and have revealed few details of the purported plot, or how the sting developed. Police arrested 12 adults, ages 19 to 43, and five suspects younger than 18 Friday and Saturday on charges including plotting attacks with explosives on Canadian targets.

Senate to tackle gay marriage ban

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush and congressional Republicans are aiming the political spotlight this week on efforts to ban gay marriage, with events at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue -- all for a constitutional amendment with scant chance of passage but wide appeal among social conservatives. "Ages of experience have taught us that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society," Bush said in his Saturday radio address. "Government, by recognizing and protecting marriage, serves the interests of all." The president was to make further remarks Monday in favor of the amendment as the Senate opened three days of debate. All but one of the Senate Democrats -- the exception is Ben Nelson of Nebraska -- oppose the measure and, with moderate Republicans, are expected to block an up-or-down vote, killing the measure for the year. Democrats say the amendment is a divisive bow to religious conservatives, and point out that it conflicts with the GOP's opposition to big government interference.

Masked gunmen kill 21 Shiites in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Masked gunmen stopped two minivans carrying students north of Baghdad, ordered the passengers off, separated Shiites from Sunni Arabs, and killed the 21 Shiites "in the name of Islam," a witness said. In predominantly Shiite southern Basra, police hunting for militants stormed a Sunni Arab mosque early Sunday, just hours after a car bombing. The ensuing fire fight killed nine. The two attacks Sunday dealt a blow to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's pledge to curb sectarian violence. He again failed to reach consensus Sunday among Iraq's ethnic and sectarian parties on candidates for interior and defense minister -posts he must fill to implement his ambitious plan to take control of Iraq's security from U.S.-led forces within 18 months. Violence linked to Shiite and Sunni Arab animosity has grown increasingly worse since Feb. 22, when bombs ravaged the golden dome of a revered Shiite mosque in predominantly Sunni Arab Samarra. Sectarian tensions have run particularly high in Baghdad, Basra and Diyala province, a mixed Sunni Arab-Shiite region. And Sunday's attacks came just days after terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi renewed his call for Sunni Arabs to take up arms against Shiites, whom he often vilifies as infidels.

East Timor's parliament meets

DILI, East Timor (AP) -- East Timor's fragile government showed signs of revival Monday, with lawmakers meeting to find a way out of the country's turmoil and a top Cabinet minister visiting rebel soldiers to seek reconciliation. Foreign Minister Jose Ramos Horta met with several rebel commanders and "had a good talk," ministry spokesman Chris Santos said. He gave no details, citing the sensitivity of the situation. Horta shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 1996 for his role in highlighting the plight of East Timorese under Indonesian rule. He recently took over the post of defense minister after his predecessor resigned amid the unrest. Earlier this year Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri fired 600 disgruntled soldiers from the 1,400-strong army after they went on strike. On April 28 a demonstration by the dismissed soldiers escalated into riots that left at least five dead. The soldiers, who claim the army opened fire on unarmed civilians, fled to the hills surrounding the seaside capital.

A tick in time saves Lyme

By DR. ROBERT WERRA Special for the Journal

Chemo limits sense of taste

DEAR DR. GOTT: I have a son, 60 years old, who has been treated for pancreatic cancer. Since taking chemo and radiation, he has lost his taste buds. Since it is hard for him to eat because nothing tastes good, he cannot gain any weight or gain any strength. He has received advice as to what to do, but nothing seems to help. Do you have any remedy for this problem? DEAR READE: I am sorry to hear of your son's affliction. As you well know, pancreatic cancer is a particularly serious ailment. Despite his condition, your son must maintain his strength and focus on good nutrition. I recommend that he take a regular protein supplement in addition to his diet. These products, such as Ensure and Carnation Instant Breakfast, are easy to swallow and are relatively inexpensive. DEAR DR. GOTT: Is there anything one could do for a prolapsed bladder and prolapsed uterus other than a complete hysterectomy? Is there a safe device or exercise that will help? How serious is this condition? It seems to run in my family. DEAR READER: There are several surgical alternatives that are effective in treating uterine/bladder prolapse. You should check with your gynecologist about which one would be appropriate for you. A pessary, a plastic device used to maintain the uterus in a normal position, might be a nonsurgical option to consider. In general, medications are not helpful. Follow your doctor's advice. To give you related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health Report "Vaginal Infections and Disorders." Other readers who would like a copy should send a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and $2 to Newsletter, PO Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092. Be sure to mention the title. DEAR DR. GOTT: I am hoping you can enlighten me as to what you can do to cure a digital mucinous cyst. I have one on my right thumb and have been told to sterilize a needle and poke it in, and it will release a white, jelly-like substance. I was told that after about 10 times it will probably go away. Well, that was eight months ago, and after lancing it about every two days, it is still here. I've tried soaking in Epsom salts and boric acid and even antibiotic creams, but nothing works. What causes it, and will I have it the rest of my life? It is sometimes painful, and it has deformed my nail. DEAR READER: Mucinous cysts of the fingers are harmless collections of clear mucus that may cause pain if the cysts are large enough to put pressure on tender joints or tendons. In most instances, treatment is not necessary; the cysts often disappear. Those that do not usually have to be removed surgically. No one knows what causes such cysts. I do not recommend self-treatment with needle drainage because of the possibility of infection that may be more difficult to overcome than the cysts themselves.

The rains are finally over and we are out of the house. And so are the ticks. I got "bit" by a tick. What to do? I was out in the garden on the edge of town in the evening. The next morning I noted a tick attached to the back of my neck. It was an adult female deer tick (Ixodes pacificus) wearing a brownish skirt and small black cape. She was the size of a sesame seed. Later in the season, the much smaller teenage (nymphal) ticks will be out in force. They feel and look like a tiny brown wood sliver and you need a hand lens to identify their legs. My nurse practitioner took it out by grasping it right close to the skin with a tweezers (fingers can also do this) and pulling slowly and steadily straight out. As sometimes happens, part of the mouth parts broke off and stayed in the skin. But not to worry, the potential Lyme germ portion was removed. The remaining tick parts will be ejected in a few days with normal skin shedding and will cause no problem or infection. I put the tick in a baggy with a moist cotton ball and took it to the Public Health Lab beneath the County Administration building at Bush and Low Gap. For $25 they will identify the tick and test it for the Lyme disease germ (Borrelia burgdorferi). This cost-effective, very accurate test has been used for a

number of years at Mendocino and Sonoma County Public Health Labs with consistent results. Happily, only 1- 1.5 percent of the thousands of adult and nymphal ticks brought in and tested have carried the Lyme disease germ. But a negative test is reassuring. However, even a positive tick is unlikely to cause Lyme disease because prolonged feeding is required to pass the germ on and body resistance is also protective. I am not going to take antibiotics because prophylactic antibiotics are not recommend-

ed here in California. Serious side effects are more likely than Lyme disease infection. But I am going to watch for, and have my wife watch for a rash on the back of my neck to be on the safe side. Why? Because Erythema Migrans is the hallmark of early Lyme disease. According to the concensus of experts, over 80 percent of Lyme disease begins with Erythema Migrans. This gradually enlarging round or oval, pink or red, target or solid rash begins from 4-30 days after the tick bite. It gradually enlarges

to a size greater than a silver dollar in 7-10 days, then subsides in 7-10 days, even without treatment. If not treated at this time dissemination and late Lyme disease can occur. I developed a large red rash in the first couple days after the bite, but that wasn't Erythema Migrans. It was a toxic or allergic response to the tick itself and it went away without any treatment. It takes a number of days for the Lyme germ to migrate through the skin and cause Erythema Migrans. But if I do develop Erythema Migrans (no tick test is perfect) or a flulike illness with low fever, aching, sore throat, etc. (because 20 percent of Lyme disease occurs with these symptoms and no Erythema Migrans rash) I will seek prompt oral antibiotic treatment. I won't wait for the results of a blood test because it can be too soon for antibodies to turn the test positive in this early stage. Treatment is 10 to 21 days, but I would go for 21 days to be on the safe side. Fortunately, treatment at this stage is almost 100 percent curative and may prevent any late Lyme disease. So what is the bottom line? Be aware and protect when you are out in the grasslands and woodlands. Do a body check for ticks in the evening (which I didn't do) and get rid of them before they imbed themselves.

Study finds strict parenting can lead to overweight kids

By CARLA K. JOHNSON The Associated Press

CHICAGO -- "Clean your plate or else!" and other authoritarian approaches to parenting can lead to overweight children, a new study finds. Strict mothers were nearly five times more likely to raise tubby first-graders than mothers who treated their children with flexibility and respect while also setting clear rules. But while the children of flexible rulesetting moms avoided obesity, the children of neglectful mothers and permissive mothers were twice as likely to get fat. "The difference between the different parenting groups is pretty striking," said the study co-author, Dr. Kay Rhee of Boston University School of Medicine. The study of 872 families appears in the June issue of Pediatrics, released Monday. Rhee speculated that parents who show respect and warmth within a framework of rules may help their children learn to make good decisions about food and exercise. Or it could be that strict parents create a stressful household where overeating becomes a comfort and escape, she said. Other studies have shown the flexible

parenting style, also called authoritative, has other good results for children such as higher achievement in school and lower incidence of depression, said John Lavigne, chief psychologist at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Lavigne, who was not involved in the new study, said most parents can learn a different way of handling their children. "Some parents might have difficulty changing their style. But a lot of other parents are very amenable to change, if they only have the right kind of advice," Lavigne said. Not enough fathers participated in the study to measure their effects on children's weight, Rhee said. And since more than 80 percent of the study participants were white, the findings may not be applicable to other racial groups, she said. The study also did not take into account the weight status of the mothers, so the researchers couldn't rule out that a mother's weight might influence both her parenting and her children's weight. However, a previous study showed that parenting style is not linked to weight status, Rhee said. To determine parenting style for the new study, researchers surveyed the mothers and observed them interacting

with their children when the kids were 4 years old. The children's body mass indexes were measured later when the children were in first grade. Seventeen percent of the children of strict disciplinarians were overweight compared to 9.9 percent of the children of neglectful parents, 9.8 percent of the children of permissive parents and 3.9 percent of the children of flexible rulesetters. "Children need adults to set some limits and as the child matures they need to learn responsibility and self-regulation gradually," said Dr. Nancy Krebs, cochair of the task force on obesity for the American Academy of Pediatrics, who also was not involved in the new study. The researchers studied mothers and children in Little Rock, Ark.; Irvine, Calif.; Lawrence, Kan.; Boston; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Charlottesville, Va.; Morgantown, N.C.; Seattle, and Madison, Wis. In homes where parents are firm but flexible, "the rules can be bent a little or modified a little to accommodate the situation. But ultimately there are rules," Rhee said. "You still maintain the rule that the child has to have a vegetable at dinner, but the child gets to pick which one and how much of it they eat."

Quality of sperm declines as men age


WASHINGTON -- It isn't only women who face a ticking biological clock when planning parenthood. New research has found that as men age, the quality of their sperm deteriorates, making it more likely they will have trouble becoming fathers and increasing the possibility of having a child with dwarfism. The study, led by Andrew Wyrobek of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Brenda Eskenazi of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, appears in this week's online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Women's biological time clock has long been known, with older women having an increased risk of miscarriage and of producing children with genetic defects such as Down Syndrome. "Our research suggests that men, too, have a biological time clock -- only it is different," Eskenazi said in a statement. "Men seem to have a gradual rather than an abrupt change in fertility and in the potential ability to produce viable, healthy offspring." Both men and women have been postponing parenthood in

recent years. Since 1980, the researchers said, birth rates have increased 40 percent for men aged 35 to 49, while there has been a decline in births involving men under 30. The same team had previously found that as men age their sperm count declines and their sperm becomes less active. The new report looked at 97 men aged 22 to 80 and found increased fragmentation of the DNA in sperm as men age. "This study shows that men who wait until they're older to have children are not only risking difficulties conceiving, they could also be increasing the risk of having children with genetic problems," said Wyrobek. Unlike older women, the changes in sperm did not increase the chance of producing a child with Down Syndrome, they found. But some older fathers did have an increased risk of having children with dwarfism and "a small fraction of men are at increased risks for transmitting multiple genetic and chromosomal defects." The study was primarily funded by several grants from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Why do we consume so much?

To the Editor: Ken McCormick has a good grasp of monetary functions. He uses apples and oranges when he asks if anyone remembers a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a loaf of bread in Germany. If that is supposed to tell us something about the American dollar it fails. It may be true that a dollar is worth .04c but where does the dollar stand against world currency? That is the real test. I have never been a fan of what has happened to our dollar particularly when a car costs more than my first house and houses cost 1,000 percent more than they did when I bought my first home in 1971. We create our own monsters however. We continue to consume even though we know it is ridiculous. We don't even slow down when gas prices hit $3.75 a gallon. We make a lot of noise about how the government should get in there and do something about it but we keep consuming. Since a car that cost $2,250 in 1980 now costs $21,500 and the cost of a home has gone from $49,500 to $675,000 I find it interesting that no one has said, "Hey! What's going on here?" but no, we keep consuming. Can anyone tell me why? Supply and demand? I don't think that quite gets it. I know you cannot spend $300 per square foot to deliver a house and that being a normal tract home at that. We pay no attention to that and keep consuming. That is a reflection of inflation in those industries that are not even included when inflation factors are made or we would go a little nuts. Perhaps the national budget is more interesting. Chas E.

THOMAS D. ELIAS Californai working to avoid being an Ohio

In the annals of election corruption, three places stand out more than all others: Chicago and New York, with their legendary tales of stuffed ballot boxes and the voting dead, and the old South, where AfricanAmericans were systematically excluded from the vote for almost a century. Mechanized balloting, cleanups of the rolls and federal voting rights laws changed much of that, and there wasn't much talk of election cheating through the last two decades of the 20th Century. But with the new millennium came new voting technology and a spate of cheating allegations. It's more than merely the hanging Florida chads that helped spur still ongoing charges of fraud. There is also Ohio. By 2004, most Ohio counties were using touchscreen voting machines made by Diebold Election Systems, an Ohio-based company whose chairman and founder loudly promised President Bush he would "bring in Ohio for you." When Ohio was narrowly decided that year, with counties using Diebold touch screen machines essentially providing Bush's national margin of victory, charges of fraud rang out loudly from the left. There were more such charges in an Ohio special election last fall, some activists even moaning that what happened might mark "the end of democracy." What happened there was indeed striking: The lone reputable pre-election poll done in that state, conducted by the Columbus Dispatch newspaper, found four major election-reform propositions either winning handily or too close to call. An initiative designed to ban corporate campaign donations, for one, led by 6136 percent in the pre-election survey published two days before the vote. But all four propositions lost, and the campaign finance restrictions went down by a 2-1 margin, almost an exact reversal of the pre-election poll. How could that poll have been so wrong on election reforms, when it was dead-on accurate on the only other issue on the ballot, a bond measure that passed easily? It was manipulation of touch-screen voting machines that lack paper trails, charged the left-wing website. "Either the poll - dead accurate for one issue - was wildly wrong (on the other), or the electronic machines on which Ohio and much of the nation conduct their elections were hacked...," charged FreePress. "We've conducted our poll the same way for years," said Darrel Rowland, the Dispatch public affairs editor who administered the poll. "But I just think we were wrong. There probably weren't enough paperless touch screen counties to make that kind of difference. Still, it was kind of shocking to watch the results on Election Night." Nothing like that happened in last fall's California special election, and elections officials say it won't in this state's primary, either. For sure, the last thing California needs in an era of extreme political divisions is questions about electoral integrity. That's why this state now requires all votes to be backed up by paper. This rule took effect with local elections earlier in the spring. In optical scan counties, the cards scanned by computers themselves make up a paper trail. In touch screen counties, voters will verify their votes on a small piece of paper which will then be locked up even as the totals are tallied by computer. Those voter-verified paper trails will be the basis for any and all recounts. The only flaw in this picture is that California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson has certified many touch-screen machines for use despite open questions about their reliability and security. Ohio also began demanding paper trails in its primary election earlier this spring. But California will go one step farther. In each county, 1 percent of all precincts will be chosen at random for hand-counting even as the computer count proceeds. Hand counts must closely match the software totals before results can become official. The voter-verified paper trails will be used in all those random counts, under a new law signed last summer over objections from McPherson and some country voting registrars, who fretted about costs. Yes, there can be problems even with these safeguards in place, as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger discovered when he showed up at the polls for last fall's special election. The governor was told he had already voted. A few quick phone calls to voting officials revealed an employee testing the system a day or two before the election had typed in Schwarzenegger's name as a sample voter. The entry had not been erased. If it can happen to Schwarzenegger, it can happen to Joe Smith, and the betting here is Mr. Smith won't get things fixed as fast, so it's possible his vote could end up being recorded exactly opposite to his own wishes. Today's safeguards, then, are very far from perfect. But they are much better than what's happened in worst-case states like Ohio and Florida.

On realignment plan

With Cabinet approval Tuesday, the government adopted the basic policy on the realignment of U.S. forces in Japan. Many difficult problems remain to be solved, such as how to come up with the 3 trillion yen or so needed to finance the realignment, and a decision on construction plans for a replacement facility for Futenma Air Station in Nago. With regard to the transfer of U.S. marines to Guam, the government will put a sizable amount of state funds into the construction of facilities there for use by U.S. forces, marking the first time that government money has been spent for such purposes outside Japan. For its part, the Okinawa prefectural government has expressed its opposition to the Cabinet approval, saying the consultations on the matter held with local governments were insufficient. The central government needs to decide on construction plans without delay by winning the cooperation of local governments, including prefectural governments, through talks in the days ahead. Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi will visit the United States late next month to meet U.S. President George W. Bush. It is important for the two leaders to reconfirm the accord on the realignment of U.S. forces in Japan reached by ministers, and to confirm the deepened alliance. That would help achieve the latest Cabinet decision. That is encouraging, although the amounts are not always as impressive, since the aid that reaches disaster areas is always less than promised. Speed is important. To reach tens, perhaps hundred, of thousand injured is decisive. ... Indonesia bore the brunt of losses when the tsunami crashed over the many Asian countries during Christmas 2004. Some 130,000 died in the Aceh province of Sumatra, compared, for example, to 8,000 dead or missing in Thailand. ... Indonesia, unlike among others Norway, is one of the countries where fear of earthquakes is almost constant. The problem is that poverty, including poorly made buildings, can amplify the consequences. It can barely get worse than a big earthquake hitting a poor, densely populated area, as in this case. ... When nature's blind rage is linked with unfairness created by humanity, the earthquake victims don't just deserve sympathy and compassion, but generous health.

Lead by example

To the Editor: Hello Ukiah! I am an addict. Once an addict, always an addict. I'm a 44 year old Humboldt county local, "EuTweeka" (Eureka). It's been about 10 years and I'm back sitting here once again. No, I have not been clean all that time, I've had a life long substance abuse problem. I am in no way ashamed. Those feelings of guilt long ago covered by a substance. Only now after 3 months incarcerated do I recognize my true faults. I am forced to remain clean. I wasn't just arrested, I was rescued from myself. I am an addict. With my system finally clean, my eyes are wide open. I secretly welcome these months in jail. I am 30 pounds heavier, the spinning in my head has stopped. I an look back an see that I do have a problem, as I have on many other occasions. Is this time any different for me? That I do not know. I am an addict. I'd use now if it were before me. For years I've been told by family and a certain special friend that I have a problem. In one ear and out the other. Those who could influence me are either dead or afraid of me. I've burned many bridges over the years. I feel blessed with the few who still care. As I study my own feelings, I studied those around me at the Humboldt facility. These young men, with names I know, I realize I knew their parents, people I used with 20 plus years ago, young men who obviously have mental problems. I'll ask the kids their drug of choice, and like their parents, "methamphetamines," they'll say, proudly. I am not one to judge, for I have been judged my whole life. I only wish to inform those parents who are interested in what I see. Now there is a meth-like substance called "crystal" or "ice," a substance many times stronger than the meth I knew. In 20 to 25 years what will the children of these young men be like? Parents, know what your children are doing. Know their friends and their friends' parents. Too much alone time is destructive to your child. Keep your alcohol consumption limited if you must drink. Kids should never see you drunk. If you must smoke cigarettes, keep it away from your child's view. Marijuana is a gateway drug. Lead by example. Learn from the mistakes of others like me. The drugs on the street have gotten stronger, as well as easier to find. Curiosity didn't kill the cat, it started the unsupervised child on the destructive road to addiction. My eyes are wide open, from inside. I am an addict! Kristopher Coon A#52368 cell B-17 Ukiah

On the earthquake in Indonesia

Even nature is unfair. At least, it must feel that way in Indonesia. The country's authorities asked for international help after ... the earthquake on Java. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg told Indonesia's president that Norway wants to help. Many other countries have promised aid.

Experimental drug helps women with advanced breast cancer


Survey: 17 percent at 2 Ivy League schools practice cutting, other self-abuse


ATLANTA -- Women with advanced breast cancer soon may have another treatment option: A novel experimental drug delayed the growth of tumors nearly twice as long as standard chemotherapy did in patients who had stopped responding to Herceptin, doctors reported Saturday. The experimental drug, Tykerb, worked so well that an international study of it was stopped early, in March, and all participants were offered the drug. In the study, women who received Tykerb plus the chemotherapy drug Xeloda had no growth of their tumors for an average of 8 1/2 months. That compares to 4 1/2 months for those given only Xeloda, said Dr. Charles Geyer Jr. of Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. He led the study and reported results Saturday at a meeting in Atlanta of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. Tykerb's manufacturer, B r i t i s h - b a s e d GlaxoSmithKline PLC, paid for the study and said it would expand global access to the drug under compassionate use provisions. The company plans to seek approval to sell Tykerb in the United States and elsewhere later this year. "This is huge," said Dr. Roy Herbst, a cancer specialist at the University of Texas' M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, who had no role in the study but has consulted for Glaxo in the past. "The next step will be to use it in patients instead of Herceptin up front," to see whether it is more effective, he said. Herceptin and Tykerb are members of a new generation of cancer medicines that more precisely target tumors without killing lots of healthy cells. Herceptin has been an important option for many women with advanced breast cancer, but eventually it stops working and women succumb to the disease. Tykerb works in a similar yet completely novel way. Like Herceptin, it targets a protein called HER-2/neu, which is made in abnormally large quantities in roughly one-fourth of all breast cancers.

Herceptin blocks the protein on the cell's surface; Tykerb does it inside the cell, and blocks a second abnormal protein, too. The benefits seemed to come without serious side effects -- at least in this study of 321 women, Geyer said. Diarrhea, mostly mild, and rash were more common in women taking Tykerb. No patients developed heart failure, but four of the 160 on the drug combination had a modest decrease in pumping power of the main chamber of the heart -- side effects that also have been seen with Herceptin. Tykerb has one big advantage over Herceptin -- it's a pill instead of an intravenous drug, which should make it cheaper and easier to use, doctors said. But Dr. Pamela Klein, a vice president at Genentech, Herceptin's maker, said Tykerb's real value may be not necessarily as a competitor. She said the drug may be even more effective in combination with Herceptin, to attack the abnormal protein from inside and outside a cancer cell at the same time. Studies are being planned to test this and other possibilities. "Both of them together may be better than either of them alone," said Dr. Julie Gralow, specialist in breast cancer at the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle. Breast cancer is the most

common major cancer in American women and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women. About 213,000 new cases are expected to occur in the United States this year and more than 1 million worldwide. Between 10 and 20 percent of breast cancers are advanced or have already started to spread at the time they are diagnosed. Average survival with this type of cancer is about two years. Tykerb produced mixed results when tested in 416 patients with advanced kidney cancer. It made no difference in survival or disease progression for the group as a whole, but a subset of patients with high levels of an abnormal protein the drug targets had more time before their tumors started to grow, said study leader Dr. Alain Ravaud of University Hospital of Bordeaux, France. Doctors at the conference also said that Sutent, a Pfizer drug recently approved for treating certain stomach tumors and advanced kidney cancer, showed promise in a small experiment involving 63 patients with lung cancer. Tumors shrank in six patients and stabilized in another 26 roughly two months after treatment with the drug, said Dr. Mark Socinski of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. However, three patients died of bleeding problems, at least one of which was thought to be related to treatment rather than the disease.

Explosive disorder affects as many as 16 million Americans, study says


CHICAGO -- Nearly 1 in 5 students at two Ivy League schools say they have purposely injured themselves by cutting, burning or other methods, a disturbing phenomenon that psychologists say they are hearing about more often. For some young people, self-abuse is an extreme coping mechanism that seems to help relieve stress; for others it's a way to make deep emotional wounds more visible. The results of the survey at Cornell and Princeton are similar to other estimates on this frightening behavior. Counselors say it's happening at colleges, high schools and middle schools across the country. Separate research found more than 400 Web sites devoted to subject, including many that glorify selfinjury. Some worry that many sites serve as an online subculture that fuels the behavior -- although whether there has been an increase in the practice or just more awareness is unclear. Sarah Rodey, 20, a University of Illinois student who started cutting herself at age 16, said some online sites help socially isolated kids feel like they belong. One of her favorites includes graphic photographs that the site warns might be "triggering." "I saw myself in some of those pictures, in the poems. And because I saw myself there, I wanted to connect to it better" by selfinjuring, Rodey said. The Web sites, recent books and media coverage are pulling back the curtain on the secretive practice and helping researchers better understand why some as young as grade-schoolers do it. "You're trying to get people to know that you're hurting, and at the same time, it pushes them away" because the behavior is so distressing, said Rodey, who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The latest prevalence estimate comes from an analysis of responses from 2,875 randomly selected male and female undergraduates and graduate students at Cornell and Princeton who completed an Internetbased mental health survey. Seventeen percent said they had purposely injured themselves; among those, 70 percent had done so multiple times. The estimate

is comparable to previous reports on U.S. adolescents and young adults, but slightly higher than studies of high school students in Australia and the United Kingdom. The study appears in this month's issue of Pediatrics, released Monday. Cornell psychologist Janis Whitlock, the study's main author, also led the Web site research, published in April in Developmental Psychology. Among the Ivy League students who harmed themselves, about half said they'd experienced sexual, emotional or physical abuse that researchers think can trigger self-abuse. Repeat self-abusers were more likely than non-injurers to be female and to have had eating disorders or suicidal tendencies, although self-injuring is usually not considered a suicide attempt. Greg Eels, director of counseling and psychological services at Cornell, said the study's findings are not surprising. "We see it frequently and it seems to be an increasing phenomenon." While Eels said the competitive, stressful college environment may be particularly intense at Ivy League schools, he thinks the results reflect a national problem. Dr. Daniel Silverman, a study co-author and Princeton's director of health services, said the study has raised consciousness among his staff, who are now encouraged to routinely ask about self-abuse when faced with students "in acute distress." "Unless we start talking about it and making it more acceptable for people to come forward, it will remain hidden," Silverman said. Some self-injurers have no diagnosable illness but have not learned effective ways to cope with life stresses, said Victoria White Kress, an associate professor at Youngstown State University in Ohio. She consults with high schools and says demand for her services has risen in recent years. Psychologists who work with middle and high schools "are overwhelmed with referrals for these kids," said psychologist Richard Lieberman, who coordinates a suicide prevention program for Los Angeles public schools. He said one school recently reported several

fourth-graders with burns on their arms, and another seeking help for "15 hysterical seventh-grade girls in the office and they all have cuts on their arms." In those situations, Lieberman said there's usually one instigator whose behavior is copied by sympathetic but probably less troubled friends. Rodey, a college sophomore, said cutting became part of her daily high school routine. "It was part of waking up, getting dressed, the last look in the mirror and then the cut on the wrist. It got to be where I couldn't have a perfect day without it," Rodey said. "If I was apprehensive about going to school, or I wasn't feeling great, I did that and I'd get a little rush," she said. Whitlock is among researchers who believe that "rush" is feel-good hormones called endorphins produced in response to pain. But it is often followed by deep shame and the injuries sometimes require medical treatment. Vicki Duffy, 37, runs a Morris County, N.J., support group and said when she was in her 20s, she had skin graft surgery on her arms after burning herself with cigarettes and a firestarter. After psychological and drug treatment, she stopped the behavior 10 years ago. Author of the 2004 book "No More Pain: Breaking the Silence of Self-Injury," Duffy recalled being stopped on the street by a 70-year-old woman who saw her scarred arms and said, "'I used to do that."' Rodey said she stopped several months ago with the help of S.A.F.E. (SelfAbuse Finally Ends) Alternatives treatment program at a suburban Chicago hospital. Treatment includes behavior therapy and keeping a written log to track what triggers the behavior. Rodey said she feels "healed" but not cured "because it's something I will struggle with the rest of my life. Whenever I get really stressed out, that's the first thing I think about."

CHICAGO -- To you, that angry, horn-blasting tailgater is suffering from road rage. But doctors have another name for it -- intermittent explosive disorder -- and a new study suggests it is far more common than they realized, affecting up to 16 million Americans. "People think it's bad behavior and that you just need an attitude adjustment, but what they don't know ... is that there's a biology and cognitive science to this," said Dr. Emil Coccaro, chairman of psychiatry at the University of Chicago's medical school. Road rage, temper outbursts that involve throwing or breaking objects and even spousal abuse can sometimes be attributed to the disorder, though not everyone who does those things is afflicted. By definition, intermittent explosive disorder involves multiple outbursts that are way out of proportion to the situation. These angry outbursts often include threats or aggressive actions and property damage. The disorder typically first appears in adolescence; in the study, the average age of onset was 14. The study was based on a national face-to-face survey

of 9,282 U.S. adults who answered diagnostic questionnaires in 2001-03. It was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. About 5 percent to 7 percent of the nationally representative sample had had the disorder, which would equal

up to 16 million Americans. That is higher than betterknown mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Coccaro said. The average number of lifetime attacks per person

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke University's troubled lacrosse team will play next season, but under strict rules and close monitoring after three players were charged with rape, school President Richard Brodhead said Monday. "I am, I know, taking a risk in reinstating men's lacrosse," Brodhead said in a statement. "The reinstatement is inevitably probationary."

Brodhead canceled the team's season April 5 after an exotic dancer who had been hired to perform at a March 13 team party told police she was raped by three team members at an off-campus house. A university investigation also found a history of disciplinary problems involving team members, including underage drinking and public urination. Brodhead said Monday that he and the school's athletics

administrators would rethink their decision to reinstate the lacrosse team if they see any repeat of "patterns of irresponsible, individual or team behaviors familiar from the past." A faculty committee had recommended the team be allowed to resume play but that its members should be strictly monitored. Brodhead said he didn't decide to reinstate the team until this weekend, after all

remaining players agreed to a mission statement that emphasizes academics, tolerance and a code of conduct that, among other things, prohibits underage drinking, university officials said. A first infraction of the conduct code will result in at least a warning and community service, the university said. A second infraction will earn a three-game suspension; a third a season-long suspension. Brodhead said the school

had an objective in restoring the team to competition. "(If) we did not allow these players the chance to take responsibility for creating a new history for their sport at Duke, we would be denying another very fundamental value: the belief in the possibility of learning from experience, the belief in education itself," he said.

Hurricanes take first game of Stanley Cup final, 5-4

By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. -- After a stirring comeback, the Carolina Hurricanes won Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals with a gift of a goal. Rod Brind'Amour scored off a flukey mistake with 31.1 seconds

remaining after Edmonton's backup goalie botched an exchange behind the net, and the Hurricanes, after falling behind 3-0, rallied to beat the Oilers 5-4 Monday night. Ty Conklin had to take over in goal for Edmonton with just under six minutes remaining after Dwayne Roloson, the star of the eighth-seeded Oilers improbable playoff run, was injured in a collision that knocked the net off its moorings. Roloson sustained a series-ending knee injury, apparently meaning Conklin will have to go the rest of the way. He didn't pass his first test. With overtime looming, Conklin went behind the net to play the puck on a seemingly routine play.

But he appeared to cross up teammate Jason Smith with a backhanded pass, the puck deflecting off Smith's stick and sliding in front of an open net. Brind'Amour scored his second goal of the night -- and he'll never get an easier one. Smith dove in a futile attempt to knock the puck away and Conklin was still coming around from behind the net when it crossed the line. Carolina's rookie goalie, Cam Ward, had another brilliant playoff performance after backing up Martin Gerber through most of the regular season. Ward made 34 saves, including the second of two

16-year-old golfer Michelle Wie finished with 2-over par on Monday, failing to qualify for the U.S. Open.

SUMMIT, N.J. -- Michelle Wie failed in her bid to become the first woman to play in the U.S. Open, teasing a frenzied gallery for 27 holes until three straight bogeys Monday afternoon sent her to a 3-over 75 and into the middle of the pack. "Obviously, I'm disappointed I didn't make it," she said. "I'm satisfied with the way I tried. I played my hardest out there." Her next stop is a major -- against the women. Wie opened with a 68 on the easier South course and still had a chance to get one of 18 spots available to the 153-player field at Canoe Brook when headed to the back nine. Needing

at least one birdie to have a chance, her inability to master the greens finally caught up with her. And the cheers from 3,500 fans that carried her throughout the day turned to sympathetic applause at the end. She finished at 1-over 143, a score that might have been good enough to make the cut if this were a tournament. But she was trying to make history, not a cut. And ultimately, she didn't come close. "I'm very proud of her," said her father, B.J. Wie. "A little disappointed, but very proud. I think Michelle demonstrated that it's possible for a woman to play in a men's major." For now, the 16-year-old from Hawaii will have to stick to the other majors. She now goes to Bulle Rock north of Baltimore to play in the LPGA Championship, where she was runner-up last year and will be among the favorites.

Hingis advances toward career slam

Swiss star earns berth in French Open quarterfinals

By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press

Brewers silence Padres

By COLIN FLY The Associated Press

PARIS -- If it all seems so long ago, that's because it was. Five years since Martina Hingis was last in the French Open quarterfinals, seven years since she was a sobbing, petulant mess while losing in the final of the only major she hasn't won. Back on tour after a three-year injury hiatus, Hingis suddenly is a title contender again, playing all the right angles and flashing that familiar wry smile Monday as she wrapped up a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 victory over No. 31 Shahar Peer in the fourth round. "It's a new year," Hingis said, "new Roland Garros." Now comes a true test for the new Hingis: A quarterfinal Tuesday against No. 2 Kim Clijsters, the reigning U.S. Open champion and twice a runner-up at the French Open. Hingis' match against Peer was halted Sunday after two sets because of fading light, so their best-of-one-set turn Monday was a tad anticlimactic -- as was men's fourth-round action, for the most part. Rafael Nadal, the defending champion, lugged an 0-3 career record against two-time major winner Lleyton Hewitt into their encounter, but those previous meetings were all on hard courts, and all before Nadal emerged as a star. Nadal's 6-2, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 victory was his 57th consecutive win on clay and moved him closer to a possible showdown in the final against Roger Federer, who's trying to become the first man since 1969 to win four Slams in a row. Nadal, Hewitt said, is "very much like Federer, winning so many matches that it's sort of second nature for him. They get down break point, and they expect to get out of it." Nadal's quarterfinal foe will be Novak Djokovic of Serbia-Montenegro, who eliminated fellow 19-year-old Gael Monfils of

Martin Hingis advanced to the French Open quarterfinals on Monday, defeating Shahar Peer, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3. Hingis is looking to capture her first French Open title. France 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5), 6-3. The Parisians were sad to see the animated Monfils go, but they do have a countryman left to support: Julien Benneteau, who reached his first Grand Slam quarterfinal when Alberto Martin of Spain quit in the first set because his back locked up. Benneteau will face No. 4 Ivan Ljubicic, a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 winner over Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo of Spain. "It's physically probably the most demanding Grand Slam, but I think of myself as one of the fittest players on tour," Ljubicic said. The grind of playing on clay hasn't affected Hingis yet. She left the tour in 2002 after a series of injuries and operations to her feet and ankles, and Tuesday will represent a fifth consecutive day on court for a woman enjoying a renaissance at age 25. "Now I can kind of survive a lot of things. It doesn't matter what's coming up next," said the 12th-seeded Hingis, who was ranked No. 1 when she was 16. "I really don't care if I have to play now every day anymore, because I know I've come up with good tennis every day." Still confident after all these years, huh? Eight of her 10 losses this season have been to women who've won majors, including Clijsters in the Australian Open. But as Hingis pointed out: "I've made a lot of improvements

Those lucky enough to watch saw quite a show. Interest was so high that Canoe Brook officials had to close the gate shortly before lunch because they didn't feel they could accommodate such a large crowd -- an estimated 5,000 on the grounds, including nearly 300 from the media, most of them following a 6-foot teenager with big dreams. And they had reason to believe they were watching something special. Wie finished her morning round by chipping in for birdie from 60 feet for a 2-under 68, matching her best score competing against men and the first time she did so without a bogey. Even after her first nine holes on the tougher, longer North course, she remained 2 under and had a legitimate shot at joining Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson & Co. at storied Winged Foot. But it all came undone by the club that doomed her chances from the start -- her putter. After hitting a fan in the leg with her tee shot on the fourth, she was 25 feet away for birdie and ran the putt 3 feet by. Wie missed the par putt for only her second bogey of the day.

But she three-putted the next hole for bogey, too, a slippery 25-foot putt that she ran a few feet by and missed. Then on the 442-yard sixth hole, she again missed the fairway, chipped across into more rough and when she finally reached the green, had to two-putt from 30 feet just to escape with bogey. That ended her hopes, and a crowd that had been so electric under mostly gray skies turned somber as the sun broke through the clouds, casting long shadows across the fairway. Mark Brooks wondered if it was just as well. Winged Foot is one of the most daunting U.S. Open courses, with severe greens, thick rough and deep bunkers. "I don't think it would be a good experience unless you've really been whipped by a golf course," he said. "I don't think Tiger Woods was ready for a U.S. Open when he was 16." Brett Quigley set the course record on the South with a 7-under 63 and was the medalist at 11-under 131. "Somebody asked me if I was worried she was going to beat me," he said. "I said, 'I don't care if she beats me as long as I get in."' As Wie spoke with reporters, five players who finished at 4-under 138 were in a suddendeath playoff for the 18th and final spot. Brad Fritsch of Canada got the last spot on the second extra hole. Wie has played eight tournaments against the men, making the cut for the first time last month at the SK Telecom Open in South Korea

on the Asian Tour. This required a little more. She tied for 59th, but wound up five strokes short, most of the shots given away on birdie putts inside 12 feet that she missed throughout the day, especially in the morning. "The greens are difficult for her. So many subtle breaks," her father said. Wiemania, indeed, reached another level. Sectional qualifiers typically draw a few hundred people, most of those family or friends. The crowd tagging along after Wie was about the same size as the one watching Phil Mickelson play in the Memorial on Sunday afternoon. And it caused a few problems, as expected. As she made her way to the 10th tee on the North course to start her second round, hundreds of people followed behind her and caused players on the 12th green to back off their shots, one caddie raising his arms in disgust. Vaughn Taylor, who was in the five-man playoff, played on the same courses and was amazed at the gallery. The problem was with fans, who cared only about Wie and at times walked across fairways as other players were getting ready to hit. "I backed off more shots today and I ever have," Taylor said.

MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Lee hit his 19th home run, Chris Capuano pitched his way in and out of trouble for six innings and the Brewers used nine walks to snap their eightgame losing streak with a 5-2 victory over San Diego on Monday night. Capuano (6-4) wasn't particularly sharp, allowing six hits and four walks but he excelled compared to Padres starter Clay Hensley (4-4), who walked four of his first eight batters and finished with a career-high seven walks. Gabe Gross, starting in right field for Geoff Jenkins, hit his sixth home run for the Brewers. Jenkins sat out with a concussion, a day after colliding with burly first baseman Prince Fielder. Derrick Turnbow recorded his 16th save in 20 opportunities with a perfect ninth. He had blown four of his last seven chances. The Brewers took advantage of Hensley in the second inning with three runs, sparked by Prince Fielder's first career triple, a ball that caromed off the wall and left fielder Eric Young. After a walk to Damian Miller, Gross' infield single scored Fielder to tie the score at 1. Hensley then walked Brady Clark to load the bases and Capuano added an infield hit to bring home Miller. Rickie Weeks grounded into a double play and a run scored to make it 3-1. Lee's solo homer in the third put Milwaukee up 4-1 and came immediately after Padres center fielder Mike Cameron robbed Corey Koskie of a home run when he made a leaping catch at the wall in the deepest part of the park. But Hensley, who struck out only two in his shortest outing of his career, was finally pulled with two outs after laboring in the fourth by giving up a single and two walks to load the bases. Reliever Brian Sweeney avoided damage by getting Koskie to line out. Meanwhile, Capuano did just enough to get by after giving up an RBI single to Mike Piazza in the first, and the Padres had the tying run at the plate or onboard in the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth innings. The biggest threats were in the fifth, when Capuano allowed three singles to load the bases and Mike Cameron's sacrifice fly cut Milwaukee's lead to 4-2, and the sixth, when Capuano ended his night by striking out Josh Barfield with men on second and third with two outs. Capuano finished with six strikeouts. Notes: Milwaukee's Jeff Cirillo made his first career start at shortstop in place of Bill Hall. ... Brewers pitcher Rick Helling struck out seven in 5 2-3 innings in an extended spring training start in Arizona. Helling will return to Milwaukee to be evaluated, then make at least two rehab starts. ... Padres ace Jake Peavy will start on Tuesday, manager Bruce Bochy said. Peavy skipped his scheduled start Saturday in Pittsburgh because of right shoulder tendinitis. ... Padres 1B Adrian Gonzalez extended his hitting streak to 13 games.

homer, and freshman Trevor Holder pitched six strong innings to lead Georgia to a 32 victory over Florida State on Monday and send the Bulldogs to the super regionals. Holder (4-3) allowed one run and four hits in six innings for the Bulldogs (45-20), who improved to 18-6 all-time in NCAA elimination games, including 14-2 in the regionals and 8-0 at Foley Field. Georgia has won 21 of its last 25 games overall. Side homered in the third to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead, marking the first time of the weekend that the Seminoles had allowed any runs in the first three innings of a game. Jonathan Wyatt added a two-out RBI single in the eighth. Florida State (44-21) took a 1-0 lead in the first when Shane Robinson hit a leadoff single, stole second base -- becoming the first Seminoles player with 100 career steals -- moved to third on a bunt single and score on Dennis Guinn's RBI single.

Tony Thomas Jr.'s sacrifice fly made it 3-2 in the ninth inning, but Joshua Fields got three outs for his 15th save of the year. Mark Sauls (1-3) took the loss for the Seminoles. Houston Regional Rice 7, Baylor 4 HOUSTON -- Josh Rodriguez homered and Joe Savery scattered two hits over five innings to lead No. 2 national seed Rice into the super regionals with a victory over Baylor in the Houston Regional. After Baylor took a 3-0 lead in the third, the Owls rallied with five runs in the bottom of the inning -- all with two outs. Rodriguez hit a tworun homer following Tyler Henley's single to pull Rice within 3-2. Adam Zornes hit a two-run double and scored on Jordan Dodson's triple to give the Owls a lead it wouldn't surrender. Savery (5-1) allowed three runs and struck out five, and Cole St. Clair got two outs for his 11th save. Rice (53-10) will likely host the winner of the Wichita State-Oklahoma game later Monday. Tim Matthews (6-5) took the loss for Baylor (37-26).

stirring stops on Shawn Horcoff at the side of the net with 3.8 seconds left. Game 2 is Wednesday night in Raleigh. Then, the series shifts to Edmonton for the next two games. With two small-market finalists and an obscure cable network televising the first two games, the EdmontonCarolina matchup was expected to draw minuscule televi-

sion ratings. Maybe a few more people will flip over after the Oilers and Hurricanes put on a stirring display with all sorts of twists and turns. The Oilers weren't done, either. After Ward made a brilliant stop on Horcoff, flinging his body back across the crease to somehow get an arm on the puck, Edmonton tied it up on a power-play goal by Ales Hemsky with 6:29 to go. The Oilers were in the finals for the first time since 1990, when they finished off a run of five Stanley Cup titles ness left over from 1999, when Hingis lost a rancorous final to Steffi Graf. Hingis was jeered for cracking her racket, for questioning calls, for walking around the net to examine a mark -- a real faux pas. She was booed for hitting an underhand serve, booed when she lost, and booed some more when, crying uncontrollably, she was escorted by her mother to the trophy presentation. "I survived it well," Hingis said Monday, "and I think I've matured over the years." The biggest intrigue heading into Monday centered on Nadal vs. Hewitt. More specifically: Could Hewitt's grind-it-out style give Nadal fits? Would Nadal dare to munch on bananas after nearly choking during his previous match? "I ate more carefully than usual," Nadal said with a said. Longtime lacrosse coach Mike Pressler resigned the day Brodhead canceled the season. Following the dancer's allegations, a grand jury in April indicted sophomore team members Reade Seligmann of Essex Fells,

in seven years with the vestiges of the Gretzky-MessierCoffey-Fuhr dynasty. After that 16-year layoff, Edmonton had to sit around for eight days before starting the finals. The Oilers got plenty of rest after needing only five games to beat Anaheim in the Western Conference finals. Carolina had a much tougher time on the Eastern side, rallying in the third period of Game 7 to beat the Buffalo Sabres and advance to its second Stanley Cup final in four years. smile. As for Hewitt, Nadal dispatched him by repeatedly finding the lines, compiling a 15-4 edge in winners in the first set. In the third, Nadal broke for a 5-4 lead with a backhand slice that skimmed the net, plopped on the sideline and skidded sideways, out of reach. "Wasn't a whole heap I could do about it," Hewitt said. The tireless Australian kept things close for the better part of 2 hours, winning 11 points in a row at one point. After all, as Nadal put it: "Hewitt is someone who, when you let him grab a finger, he takes the arm." But, eventually, as happens to most of Nadal's opponents, Hewitt wore down, doublefaulting five times in the final set. N.J., and Collin Finnerty of Garden City, N.Y., on charges of rape, kidnapping and sexual assault. Team co-captain David Evans was indicted on the same charges in May. Defense attorneys and Evans have strongly proclaimed the players' innocence.

Expectations are much higher these days, in part because the muscle memory from her five Grand Slam titles is all the way back. She won the Italian Open last month for the first title of her comeback, and was steely as ever against Peer, mixing in four drop shots to end points. "Martina was playing unbelievable today," said Peer, who was hoping to become the first Israeli woman or man to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal. "She had, I think, very few mistakes. In the big points, she had no mistakes." A championship in Paris might help erase any bitter-

lizards cannot become infected and become carriers of the Lyme germ. This is probably because they are cold blooded and the germ cannot live in their blood. In fact, they well may eradicate the germ in feeding infected ticks. This would explain why our adult ticks have an even lower rate of infection than teenage nymphal ticks. So, be kind to your scaly little neighbors and next time you see them doing their little push-ups, say thank you. For a preventive handout on Lyme disease, check with your physician or the internet. However it can be very confusing and very misleading. Google has 10,100,000 references for Lyme disease. The two best authoritative, thorough Lyme disease sites I have found are: 1.) The Center for Disease ControlGoogle at CDC.lyme disease, 2.) The American Lyme Disease Foundation .


trists use to diagnose mental illness, though with slightly different names and criteria. That has contributed to misunderstanding and underappreciation of the disorder, said Coccaro, a study coauthor. Coccaro said the disorder involves inadequate production or functioning of serotonin, a mood-regulating and behavior-inhibiting brain chemical. Treatment with antidepressants, including those that target serotonin receptors in the brain, is often helpful, along with behavior therapy akin to anger management, Coccaro said. Most sufferers in the study had other emotional disorders or drug or alcohol problems and had gotten treatment for them, but only 28 percent had ever received treatment for anger. "This is a well-designed, large-scale, face-to-face study with interesting and useful results," said Dr. David Fassler, a psychiatry professor at the University of Vermont. "The findings also confirm that for most people, the difficulties associated with the disorder begin during childhood or adolescence, and they often have a profound and ongoing impact on the person's life." Jennifer Hartstein, a psychologist at Montefiore Medical Center in New York, said she had just diagnosed the disorder in a 16year-old boy. "In most situations, he is relatively affable, calm and very responsible," she said. But in stressful situations at home, he "explodes and tears apart his room, throws things at other people" to the point that his parents have called the police. Hartstein said the study is important because many people are not aware of the disorder.

If they do imbed, remove and take to the Public Health Lab as outlined, be aware of Erythema Migrans rash, and report promptly to your doctor or the E.R. Enjoy the summer knowing the risk of Lyme disease is very low in our area and elsewhere in California. If you are still with me and interested in knowing more, I am happy to explain because the story is fascinating. In our county over the years approximately 20 cases or less per year are reported. Last year there was one case and so far this year there are nine cases. In all of California on average 80 to 140 cases are reported per year. However, in the Northeast and Midwest many thousands are reported each year in equivalent areas where deer ticks exist. Why the difference? Because, while con-

sistently 1-3 percent of adult ticks and slightly more in nymphal ticks carry the Lyme disease here in California carry it, 20 to 80 percent of the ticks in the Northeast carry it. And why is that? We have the Western Fence Lizard and they don't. Growing ticks need a periodic blood meal in order to grow. Out east their favorite target is the warm-blooded WhiteFooted Mouse. They love them. And if a Lyme carrying tick feeds on a mouse they may infect the mouse for life. The mouse will not contract Lyme disease or be bothered by the germ but they may become carriers. Their blood may infect any tick that feeds on them from then on. Out here, the ticks much prefer the cold-blooded fence lizard over a mouse or other warm blooded animal that could be a carrier. Why? Only a tick knows. So what difference does it make? A huge one. Fence

was 43, resulting in $1,359 in property damage per person. About 4 percent had suffered recent attacks. The findings were released Monday in the June issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry. The findings show the little-studied disorder is much more common than previously thought, said lead author Ronald Kessler, a health care policy professor at Harvard Medical School. "It is news to a lot of people even who are specialists in mental health services that such a large proportion of the population has these clinically significant anger attacks," Kessler said. Four a couple of decades, intermittent explosive disorder, or IED, has been included in the manual psychia-

Using each "Chaos Grid" number with its letter one time, arrange the numbers with their letters for the "Order Grid" so each vertical column, horizontal row, and two diagonals each ADD to numbers inside thick lined cells. B. Some correct numbers with their letters have been put into the "Order Grid" to get you started. Also, above the "Order Grid" is a "Decoded Message" clue. C. After you have solved the "Order Grid" doing as direction "A" says, put the letters from horizontal rows, from left to right, under "Decoded Message" and make words to form the answer.

Girl should tell her parents about friend's dangerous behavior

Dear Annie: I am a high school student and have a friend, "Alice," who is only 14 years old. We are very close. We even call each other brother and sister. Alice has been in some sketchy relationships in the past, but her most recent one has really got me worried. She confided that she is going out with a 20year-old man, "Steve." Alice says she met Steve at a party and she thought he was younger. (Like that makes it OK.) Steve also has a daughter, which means that he has knocked up somebody before. I asked two of my female friends for advice, and one said I need to take action or something bad will happen. I know I should, but if I say anything to Alice, I'm afraid she might think I am interfering and it will hurt our close relationship. My other friend said I should not get involved because Alice won't listen to me. She also said Alice's problem is not my fault and Alice knows it's wrong to date Steve.


By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar

Because I am the only person Alice has told about this, I feel somewhat obligated to do something. Please help. -- Concerned Friend Dear Friend: Sometimes friends must make difficult choices. You need to protect Alice, and this means telling someone about Steve. Please confide in your parents and ask them to discuss the situation with Alice's folks. If you don't speak up, you will never forgive yourself if something terrible happens. Alice may become angry with you, but she also will know you care enough about her to take that risk. In fact, we think that's what she is hoping for. Good luck. Dear Annie: I am 5 feet 8, 140 pounds -- a

normal weight for my height. I exercise regularly. Unfortunately, while the rest of me is nicely proportioned, I store all of my fat in my belly area. I am sick and tired of people asking me if I'm pregnant. It is so rude, plus it hurts my feelings and makes me feel fat and ugly. Not once has anyone apologized for being mistaken, no matter how I handle the situation. Just yesterday, a woman I barely know asked if I was expecting. I said, "No, I'm just fat," hoping it would embarrass her, but no. She kept right on talking without a pause. Please advise your readers that unless you have received an invitation to the baby shower, or someone is wearing a "Baby on Board" T-shirt, keep your mouth shut. And here's one more: If you ask someone if they have children and they say "No," the appropriate response is to mind your own business. It is not to ask, "Why not?" Thanks for letting me vent. -- Childless by Choice in Chicago Dear Chicago: Some people are just rude and don't realize it, or don't care. You can't do anything to stop their inappropriate ques-

tions, but you shouldn't feel obligated to respond, either. In the meantime, please talk to a trainer about that belly fat. It's a very dangerous place to accumulate weight. Dear Annie: I read the column from "Missing Him in California," whose husband worked extra long hours, hoping to get a promotion. It made me think back to one of my old bosses -- a very wise man. When I started putting in extra hours, he took me aside and gave me two bits of advice: 1. Unless you're doing volunteer work, don't do anything unless you get paid for it. 2. Anytime you think the world can't get along without you, just take a walk through the cemetery. It's filled with people who thought the same. From that moment on, I enjoyed my family and my work, and retired a rich man -- not only because of my financial resources, but because I learned to cherish my growing family. -- Manitowoc, Wis. Dear Wis.: Every workaholic (or spouse of one) should clip your letter and tape it to the bathroom mirror. Thanks for writing.

Supermarkets and restaurants report a growing interest in bison as beef alternative

By JON SARCHE The Associated Press

Volunteers help clip 88,000 salmon

By FRANK HARTZELL The Fort Bragg Advocate

DENVER -- A bison boomlet is under way as Americans look for an Atkins diet-friendly and mad cowproof alternative to beef. Although the bison industry is just a baby when it comes to U.S. meat production, there are signs of heightened interest as producers recover from a mid1990s slump brought on by overproduction. "People see it more, probably sample it more and they like it," said Roy Rozell, who manages a bison ranch in Colorado. A good indicator of the bison industry's turnaround is Ted's Montana Grill, a national chain of 18 restaurants co-founded by media mogul and bison ranch owner Ted Turner. The chain is expected to double in size by the end of the year. Standing outside a Ted's in downtown Denver, attorney Tom Franklin shrugged off

the mad cow scare and said he had just enjoyed a bison burger lunch. Another customer, businessman Mitch Zatz, said he likes the taste and the fact that bison meat is leaner than beef. "It's kind of cool, a change of pace. I feel like, we're in Colorado, we should eat bison," he said. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported that in 2002, the latest year for which figures are available, 25,340 bison were slaughtered at federally inspected plants, compared with 35 million head of cattle. Bison meat, higher in iron than beef, can be difficult to find on store shelves and commands a premium in restaurants and supermarkets compared to a similar cut of beef. At Denver-area grocery stores, ground bison was selling for $5.99 per pound, compared to $4.69 per pound for 93 percent lean ground beef. tries to take care of the buffalo as best as possible. "We probably have some of the finest handling facilities in the business," Lawson said. "The American bison is as American and majestic as you can get." Buffalo is a much leaner meat than beef of chicken and is a healthy alternative to both "Bison is lower in cholesterol, fat and calories than most any other meat," Lawson said. Lawson was originally born in

A recent poll conducted by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association indicated most Americans still believe the beef supply is safe. Bison producers, fearing a chilling effect for their product, say they wouldn't want that to change. Agriculture officials believe that feed containing protein or bone meal from cows with mad cow disease is the most likely source of infection. Such feed was banned in 1997. There have been no known cases of mad cow disease in bison, and the animals' natural characteristics make it useless for ranchers to give them extra protein from animal biproducts, said Martin Marchello, an animal sciences professor at North Dakota State University. Bison haven't been bred for centuries, like beef cattle, to be "a meat wagon," said Dave Carter, executive director of the National Bison Association based in Texas but loves his ranch and home in Ukiah. "I love the ranch and Mendocino county." The Bison Store on J Bar S Ranch is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It's located at 6201 Highway 20 in Ukiah and can be reached at 4856852.

recently opened the Bison Store five days a week," Lawson said. "You can find anything from fine buffalo meat to robes and skins. Anything you want with buffalo we can get." J Bar S Ranch is the largest producer in the state of California and

Westminster, Colo. "The animal just doesn't do well with a real high-protein feed, so there's less tendency to even want to move in the direction of supplementing feed," he said. Many of the plants where bison are slaughtered and butchered have had longstanding policies against using sick or injured animals for human food, Carter said. The Agriculture Department recently banned use of such animals by beef processors for human consumption. Carter also said bison are processed in smaller plants that handle far fewer animals than large beef-processing plants -- about 25,000 animals per year compared with about 130,000 head of beef slaughtered daily. It's not a guarantee against disease-causing organisms, Marchello said, but it means workers can take more time and care with each animal and to ensure cleanliness. "Everybody searches for a healthy product and we have that," said Rozell, the Colorado bison rancher. "I think the American public, they are going to try stuff and when it's good, they're going to come back to it."

Until Sunday, the Hollow Tree Creek Salmon Hatchery was a fond childhood memory for Jay Husman. After making a five-hour drive to the end of a bumpy gravel road, he arrived to join about a dozen volunteers who worked over the course of a week to cut the fins of about 88,000 threeinch Chinook salmon. Husman, who is retired from Foster Farms, remembers his parents volunteering for the same event decades ago but enjoyed his first ever time helping out. Those at the fin-clipping on Sunday credited Husman's parents with being important among the commercial fishing families who got the hatchery and World's Largest Salmon Barbecue started 35 years ago. "They would come up with a group of commercial fisherman and their wives. I always found it neat what the fishermen were doing, returning the salmon to the ocean. They worked hard at it," said Husman. Husman saw a reposting of an Advocate-News story about the event on the Coastside Fishing Club discussion boards Thursday and was on the road to come help by Friday. Another volunteer came from Reno to help, but most were rounded up by hatchery manager Spencer Stiff and retiring hatchery manager Jerry Wall.The salmon, while only the size of a pinky finger, were nothing like an ordinary minnow. They hopped and roiled in nets after being fished out of 1,000-gallon plastic tanks where they live at the hatchery. Stiff dipped the bespeckled babies into water containing clove oil, which briefly tranquilized them. Then each fish had to be scooped out of a bucket by a volunteer and a quick cut made on the left ventral fin with a pair of scissors. The tiny fish would react to the surgery by wiggling furiously until returned to the water. Each fish was different and the distinctive angular shape and big mouth of some of the larger babies brought smiles from the fishermen on hand. The missing fin will tell hatchery workers three to four years from now that the fish came from Hollow Tree Creek Salmon Hatchery, and they will not be used for spawns there to avoid in-breeding.Wall and Stiff were proud of the fact that only a few fish had been lost despite tens of thousands being handled. Wall has maintained that record of low mortality for decades, he said. Stiff worked at a much larger hatchery on the Trinity River, where the baby fish have higher mortality rates and a rougher ride in and out of the hatchery. the relevant documents. "There may be some information that develops during the course of discovery that facilitates a settlement," he said. On a final note, Chichester said: "I want to remain positive through this. Our issue is not with the school district, the board, or the school administration; it's with their agent, their architect... but this is the process. Both the school district and the contractor were damaged in this. The contractor suffered; the district suffered. It's unfortunate this is how we have to work this out, but it seems to be our only option." Laura Clark can be reached at [email protected]

district, Chichester said. "We have a contract with the school district. The architect is the school district's agent. The correct and legal process is for us to seek damages from the district... " he said. However, if it's necessary to go to trial, Rainbow wants it to be a jury trial, Chichester said. "We also requested, and the school district's attorney agreed, that we would participate in mediation by September 30. What we expect is the information that is shared in mediation, hopefully, will lead to a settlement before the trial," Chichester said. Between now and August Rainbow and the school district will prepare for mediation. "It's a process called discovery," Chichester said, noting during this time both sides request information and all .
