Not that a two-game winning streak shouldn't have UC Irvine's players feeling a bit giddy, but guard Zamiro Bennem found it hard to contain himself after a 75-52 victory over Southern Oregon on Monday. "I didn't even know they were a [NAIA] Division II school until some one yelled it out before we ran on to the floor," Bennem said. "It didn't matter. The outcome was going to be the same. It was going to be the same if we were playing UCLA." UCLA? "Well. . . ." Bennem said.

Some southern Oregon ranchers will have to reduce or completely shut down irrigation in the parched Upper Klamath Basin this summer as a result of a historic assertion of water rights by other users in the region. On Monday, several groups, including the Klamath Tribes and irrigators in the federal Klamath Project, made formal calls for water, asking Oregon to enforce rights they won earlier this year. "Nobody should be surprised by the tribes making a call," said Jeff Mitchell of the Klamath Tribal Water Team.

Someone has stolen some special Christmas trees from the Rogue River National Forest in southern Oregon. U.S. Forest Service officials say that thieves, apparently cutting Christmas trees, broke through a fence last weekend and took 140 experimental trees from a plot where foresters were growing a genetically superior forest. The trees were among 5,200 planted in 1981 from seeds collected from trees with the most desirable characteristics for timber production.

A Seattle energy company received initial regulatory approval Wednesday to build five massive wind turbines floating 16 miles off the Oregon coast. The pilot project off Coos Bay would be the first offshore wind facility on the West Coast. It also would be the biggest demonstration of technology that places floating turbines on platforms in deep water, according to federal officials and executives at Principle Power, the developer. The turbines would be as tall as a 60-story building, vastly larger than typical turbines on land-based wind farms, and able to tap strong ocean winds that blow consistently in southern Oregon, said Kevin Banister, Principle's vice president for business and government affairs.

Guard Zamiro Bennem looked dangerous on offense and smothered BYU leading scorer Mark Bigelow on defense.
