New Mexico reports slow job growth
Vol. 123, No. 2 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Job growth over the past year in New Mexico has been the slowest among nine other states in the West, including neighboring Arizona, Colorado and Texas. The latest market review by the New Mexico Workforce Solutions Department shows employment in New Mexico grew by 1,700 jobs between November 2012 and November 2013. That amounts to 0.2 percent.
Nationally, the job growth rate was 1.7 percent for the same period. The report shows Texas led the region with year over-year job growth of 2.5 percent, followed by Utah, Colorado and Arizona. Job growth in Arizona was 1.9 percent, while Colorado topped 2 percent. New Mexico labor officials did point to a bright spot: The Albuquerque area marked positive annual job growth for the eighth con-

secutive month. The metro area added about 3,200 jobs during the 12-month period ending in November. Private sector employment grew by 2,600 jobs, with most of that fueled by the construction industry. The city did lose 1,000 manufacturing jobs over the year, however, and the usually robust educational and health services sector lost 200 jobs. In Las Cruces, about 300
jobs were gained in 12 months, representing a 0.4 percent increase. Farmington saw its over -the-year job growth increase by 1.4 percent. There is some potential for New Mexico’s employment numbers to improve in 2014. The labor report mentioned the ef fort by the University of New Mexico and the city of Albuquerque to revitalize the commercial life of down-

International Potash is in the process of receiving approval from the Bureau of Land Management to break ground on the Lea County mining project. The construction phase is expected to last three years and cost about $1 billion. In Dona Ana County, commissioners are consid-
ering expanding one of three foreign trade zones, which are commercial areas that exempt importers from paying typical tariffs and duties. Supporters contend that allowing importers to move their products anywhere in the county tax-free — along with new transportation options stemming from Union Pacific Railroad’s new facility — would draw in new businesses.
LAS CRUCES (AP) — Farmers in southern New Mexico are hoping for more snow this winter as they try to recover from what was a historically dismal irrigation season in 2013. Snowpack levels in souther n Colorado and northern New Mexico will be closely watched in the first part of the year. So far, they’re better than last year. Phil King, the water engineer for the Elephant Butte Irrigation District, told the Las Cruces Sun-News that despite the early snow, there’s no indication this season will offer anything close to a full supply of water. A federal report released Monday showed the Upper Rio Grande Basin was around 90 percent of nor-
mal for this time of year. That’s down from over 100 percent in early December. Experts say the snowfall all but shut down in December. “It seems like most of the stor ms that have come through are either skirting us to the north or they’re moisture starved,” said Wayne Sleep, a hydrologic technician with the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Albuquerque. “It hasn’t been real favorable for snowpack development.” The most important snowfall months are about to begin. January, February and March usually generate the bulk of the snowpack for a given season, experts say.

White House asks Recreational pot shops open in Colo. Congress to pass jobless benefits bill
HONOLULU (AP) — The White House is calling on Congress to make its first legislation of the new year the restoration of unemployment insurance for Americans whose benefits have expired.
More than 1 million Americans lost jobless benefits last week. White House economist Gene Sperling says restoring the benefits would not only help those individuals, but also lead to the creation of 200,000 jobs and economic
Under the benefits program, the federal government provided an average monthly stipend of $1,166. However, an extension was dropped from a budget deal struck in December and Republican lawmakers have balked at its $26 billion annual cost. The White House is backing a bill that would temporarily extend the benefits for three months.
DENVER (AP) — Crowds were serenaded by live music as they waited for the nation’s first legal recreational pot shops to open. They ate doughnuts and funnel cakes as a glass-blower made smoking pipes. Some tourists even rode around in a limo, eager to try weed but not so eager to be seen buying it.
And when the sales began, those who bought the drug emerged from the stores, receipt held high and carrying sealed shopping bags, to cheers.
“I’m going to frame the receipt when I go home, to remind myself of what might be possible: Legal
1st snowstorm of new year descends on New England HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Residents and emergency management officials in New England and parts of New York prepared on Wednesday for a winter storm predicted to help usher in 2014 with snow and frigid temperatures across much of the region. Snow was expected to begin falling over night, promising a messy commute for the first business day of the new year, but the full stor m wasn’t expected to hit until later Thursday. As much as a foot of snow or more was forecast for some areas
overnight Thursday into Friday, and temperatures were expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero, the National Weather Service said. “There will be travel problems,” said Hugh Johnson, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Albany, N.Y. “It will be very cold.” The stor m dropped a half-foot or more of snow in Illinois on Wednesday, prompting hundreds of flight cancellations into and out of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, according to the avia-

Activists hope he’s right, and that the experiment in Colorado will prove to be a better alternative to the costly American-led drug war, produce the kind of revenue that state officials hope and save the government costs in locking up drug offenders. Just on the first day, prices in some places rose to more than $500 an ounce, and some shops announced midafternoon they would close early
because of short supply. It’s too soon to say whether the price spikes and long lines will persist. Washington state will open its pot industry later this year. Both states’ programs will be watched closely not just by officials in other states, but by activists and governments in other countries because the industries will be the first to regulate the production and sale of the drug. Some countries have decriminalized the drug, and the Netherlands lets people buy and sell it, but it’s illegal to grow or process it. Just as shops opened

Wednesday, the Denver Police Department tweeted, “Do you know the law?” and linked to city websites on state and local laws that include bans on public consumption, driving under the influence, taking marijuana out of state and giving pot to anyone under 21.
Denver police said one person was issued a summons for public consumption. The Colorado State Patrol reported no potrelated incidents. No potrelated incidents were reported at Denver International Airport, where signs war ned travelers See POT, Page A3

Sections of interior souther n New England and New York could get up to a foot of snow, with forecasts generally calling for 6 to 12 inches. New York City, likely to see 3 to 7 inches, issued a snow alert. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo urged the city’s commuters to leave their cars at home in case major highways are closed for Thursday’s evening rush hour. “We are looking at a serious storm situation,” Cuomo said.

Marketing efforts to uninsured youth ramp up
MIAMI (AP) — The socalled “young invincibles” are so important to the success of the Affordable Care Act that supporters and detractors are spending millions to reach them with racy ads, social media campaigns and celebrity endorsements. The president is even (gasp) asking their mothers to help convince them to sign up for insurance. The federal government and states running their own exchanges have launched marketing efforts for this crucial demographic of healthy young adults,
but it’s unclear if the messages are getting through. Eric Fisher, a 28-year-old from Salt Lake City, said he still hasn’t seen any of the social media campaigns — one of which targets Utah residents with images of people snowboarding and rock climbing. He tried to sign up online when the federal marketplace first launched but couldn’t because of the long wait times and other website glitches. He said he’ll try again at some point. He added that the historic health care overhaul isn’t a topic he and
his friends spend much time talking about. “It’s not like a coffee table conversation,” Fisher said. According to a recent Harvard survey, many of Fisher’s peers are undecided. A poll by Harvard’s Institute of Politics shows about 40 percent of people between the ages of 18 and 29 are on the fence about whether to sign up, with the rest split fairly evenly between those likely to enroll and those who probably won’t. The survey of 2,000 young adults was conduct-
Roswell Daily Record
ed from Oct. 30 to Nov. 11, after the first month of enrollment on the health care exchanges and when sign-up problems were at their peak. Consisting of healthy college students and twentysomethings, the so-called “young invincible” demographic is the holy grail of the Affordable Care Act. Insurers need their participation to offset the costs of covering older, sicker Americans. If enough young people decide not to buy insurance through state or federal marketplaces, it could throw off the market’s equi-
librium and cause insurance rates to rise dramatically the following year. Federal officials haven’t released detailed demographic infor mation on who’s enrolled so far, so it’s not clear how many young people have signed up. Ad campaigns in many states are courting undecided young adults. In Colorado, a nonprofit group created a series of provocative “got insurance?” ads. One features a blonde standing next to a life-sized cut-out of celebrity heartthrob R yan Gosling with the caption, “Hey girl,
you’re excited about easy access to birth control and I’m excited about getting to know you. She got insurance.” Another touting “Brosurance” encourages men doing a keg stand not to tap into their beer money to cover medical bills. When the exchange launched, models wearing nothing but underwear and “Get Covered” signs passed out fliers in downtown Denver. Arizona and Utah ads targeting weekend warriors and other athletes note the risks of getting hurt without health insurance.
LAS CRUCES (AP) — Some Las Cruces officials are concerned about the financial health of city government. The amount of gross receipt taxes collected by the southern New Mexico city continues to drop and initial projections for growth in the 2014 budget year might not materialize. This has prompted councilors to consider adjustments to the city’s operating budget. “At this point, it’s nothing the city can’t handle,” Mayor Ken Miyagishima tells Las Cruces Sun-News. “The economy is a little slow right now. I hope the public can understand this is what we use to pay for Meals on Wheels, operate the buses, run the library.” Councilors plan to meet later this month to discuss the city’s finances and possible cuts to keep the budget in the black. Miyagishima said the budget changes he expects the city to implement won’t include reductions in services. To bolster long-ter m gross receipts tax stability, the mayor said the city needs state legislation that deals with Internet sales made by city residents. He said those sales are not subject to taxes, and the city could lose substantial
future revenues if the practice continues. “It’s only going to grow in popularity,” Miyagishima said of online sales. “If the state doesn’t do something ... it’s going to affect all cities.” Through the first six months of the fiscal year, Las Cruces’ gross receipt taxes were down 1.6 percent, $613,100, according to a report prepared by the city’s budget manager. For December, which reflected consumer spending in October, tax revenues were down 3.6 percent, or $217,901. Assistant City Manager Mark Winson said the decline in gross receipt taxes could have implications for the city since its $280 million budget is based on a positive growth rate of 2.7 percent in gross receipt taxes. While the outlook for the second half of the fiscal year is more favorable, city budget manager Dick Gebhart said it’s highly unlikely tax collections will recover from losses experienced during 2013. The tax on sales and services accounts for 72 percent of the city’s revenue. That pays for most services and programs that city government provides to residents.
Las Cruces officials Broken axle found at scene of derailment worry about finances BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Federal investigators said Wednesday they have recovered a broken axle at the scene of an oil train derailment and fire in southeastern North Dakota but don’t know yet whether it caused the wreck. “We’ll want to know if it was the actual cause of the derailment, or was it broken during the derailment?” National Transportation Safety Board member Robert Sumwalt said. Investigators at the scene have found nothing wrong with the railroad track or with signals along the tracks. Interviews of train crews were to begin as early as Thursday, Sumwalt said, and investigators have other work to finish such as developing a detailed timeline of the incident and going through shipping records. “Our investigative teams will be here through the
NM national refuge to expand
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge on Albuquerque’s southern edge is growing thanks to the purchase of 57 acres. The $1.1 million purchase was announced this week by Bernalillo County Commissioner Art de la Cruz and state Sen. Michael Padilla. They also say development of a master plan for the refuge and visitors’ center is under way. The state Legislature approved the funding for the purchase during its last session. As the Southwest’s first urban refuge, Valle de Oro was dedicated in September 2012. It now consists of close to 490 acres of alfalfa fields and cottonwoods along the Rio Grande. There are plans to buy another 80 acres. Of ficials say a public meeting is scheduled next week to gather community comments and ideas for the ROSWELL LODGE #18 AF & AM

weekend,” he said. “We are in the very early stages of the investigation, but even still we are making good progress.” The NTSB said earlier that a westbound BNSF Railway train carrying grain derailed first Monday afternoon, and a portion of it fell onto an adjacent track carrying the eastbound BNSF oil train. Eighteen cars on the 106car oil train derailed and several burned. No one was hurt, but many of the 2,400 residents in nearby Casselton temporarily evacuated due to potentially unsafe air. Investigators have determined that the grain car derailment happened at a point in the tracks where a train can be switched to a side rail, Sumwalt said. “We believe it to be a very short window,” he said of the time that elapsed between the grain train derailing and collid-
refuge’s master plan.
Land Commissioner supports proposed monument
SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico Land Commissioner Ray Powell is throwing his support behind a proposal that would protect scenic areas in Dona Ana County. New Mexico’s two U.S. senators have introduced legislation that calls for designating about 780 square miles near Las Cruces as the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument. The effort has been more than a decade in the making. The area would include eight new wilderness areas and would be overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. It would also include about 125 square miles of state trust land. Powell says his office is

GOP, Dems to repackage arguments for 2014 ATLANTA (AP) — Both Republicans and Democrats are looking for fresh ways to pitch old arguments as they head into the final midterm election year of Barack Obama’s presidency.
Eager to capitalize as the president’s job approval rating hovers in the low 40s, Republicans are looking to hammer the clumsy implementation of Obama’s health care overhaul and bemoan an economy that, while improving, still grows too slowly. They’re already painting Democrats as fiscally irresponsible underlings of an
increasingly unpopular president whose government creates more problems than it solves.
Democrats say they’ll run as the party of average Americans and paint Republicans as out-oftouch allies of the wealthy, with a stubbor n streak that forced a partial gover nment shutdown and still prevents practical solutions for national problems. They’re advocating populist positions like a minimum wage increase and an end to tax breaks for energy companies, and they’re already reminding voters of Republicans’
struggle to connect with women, non-whites and younger Americans. They’re also looking to exploit the rift between tea party conservatives and establishment Republicans.
Republicans hold the House majority, and Democrats control the Senate; so each side wants to reclaim a second chamber to end the Capitol Hill divide that has largely resulted in gridlock for the past three years. Also at stake are a majority of governors’ seats, which control key policy decisions around the country

that they can’t take the drug home. At least 24 pot shops in eight towns opened. In Denver, pot users welcomed the new year and the new industry by firing up bongs and cheering in a cloud of marijuana smoke at a 1920s-themed “Prohibition Is Over” party — a reference to the 1930s-era law that outlawed marijuana. Shopper Jacob Elliott said he wrote reports in college about the need to end pot prohibition, but never thought it could happen in his lifetime. “This breaks that barrier,” said Elliott, who traveled to Colorado from Leesburg, Va., to be among the first to buy legal weed. Preparation for the retail market started more than a year ago, soon after Colorado and Washington voters in 2012 approved legal pot industries. Uruguay passed a law in December to become the first nation to regulate pot, but regulatory system isn’t in place yet. Pot advocates, who had long pushed legalization as an alternative to the drug war, had argued it would generate revenue for state coffers — and in

Dona Ana County farmer Robert Faubion said there’s a lot of interest among growers in the precipitation and irrigation runoff forecast for the coming spring. They use the information to make decisions about which crops to grow and whether they should leave land fallow.
“That’s really the decision every far mer has had to make the last few years,” said Faubion, an irrigation district board member. “Nobody likes it. Everybody is praying for a good snowpack and snowmelt.”
Colorado’s case to support education — and save money by not locking up low-level drug offenders. “I feel good about it. The money’s going to schools,” said shopper Joseph Torres of Denver. The price for high-quality weed at some shops was around $400 an ounce. That’s about four times what smokers are paying on the black market in Colorado, according to crowd-sourced Internet surveys. Much of the extra cost was attributed to state and local taxes in excess of 25 percent. People who were waiting in line shared their pot incarceration stories over cof fee and funnel cakes. “Trafficking conviction. Nineteen years old. For a plant, how stupid,” said 24-year-old Brandon Harris, who drove 20 hours from Blanchester, Ohio. Colorado set up an elaborate plant-tracking system to try to keep the drug away from the black market, and regulators set up packaging, labeling and testing requirements, along with potency limits for edible pot. The U.S. Justice Department outlined an Snow in the high country melts each spring, runs into the Rio Grande and eventually makes its way into Elephant Butte Lake and Caballo Reservoir, where it’s released to irrigate crops in Dona Ana County, El Paso County in Texas and Mexico.
While models seem to offer conflicting information about precipitation over the next few months, Sleep said there isn’t a strong indication there will be abundant snow or rain in the Rio Grande watershed. “Based on what’s gone on the last few years, I would error toward drier,” he said of the forecast. “As early as it is, it’s kind of hard to tell
eight-point slate of priorities for pot regulation, requiring states to keep the drug away from minors, criminal cartels, federal property and other states in order to avoid a federal crackdown. With the additional police patrols, the airport war nings and various other measures, officials hoped they have enough safeguards in place to avoid predictions of public health and safety harm from the opening of the pot shops. A group of addiction counselors and physicians said they’re seeing more marijuana addiction problems, especially in youths, and that wider pot availability will exacerbate the problem. “This is just throwing gas on the fire,” said Ben Cort of the Colorado Center for Dependency, Addiction & Rehabilitation at the University of Colorado Hospital. Some medical marijuana patients groups say they’re worried about supply. That’s because the retail inventory for recreational use is coming entirely from the preexisting medical inventory. Many in the industry warned patients to stock up before the sales began. much right now.”
Last spring’s runoff was dismal. In addition to a shortage of snow, dry ground soaked up runoff, keeping it from reaching the river.
This year, the ground is not as dry. Another boon, King said, is that historic rainfall in September helped to boost the levels of Elephant Butte Lake and Caballo Reservoir. Even if the snowfall this winter doesn’t materialize, irrigators will still have more water than in 2013. It will be March before officials decide how water in Elephant Butte will get allocated.
and will help shape the landscape for the 2016 presidential election.
Leaders and strategists from each party insist they’ll have fresh twists to the health care fight now entering its fourth year. Since much of the health care law takes ef fect in 2014, voters will be reacting to actual outcomes rather than just political hyperbole from either side. “Obamacare is in absolute chaos,” wrote Republican Senate campaign spokesman Brad Dayspring in his year-end review. “Vulnerable Democratic incumbents and
Thursday, January 2, 2014
candidates ... can’t keep their own spin straight.”
Republicans have enjoyed the technical struggles of the federal online exchanges where customers can attempt to buy coverage. But perhaps the best gift for the GOP: Insurers dropping tens of thousands of policy holders and of fering them more comprehensive — and expensive — coverage despite Obama’s explicit promise in 2010 that “if you like your plan, you can keep it.” That promises to be an acute issue for several Senate Democrats — Mark
Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, and Kay Hagan of North Carolina — who are running for re-election for the first time since voting for the health care law in 2010.
Many Democrats concede that the president’s 2010 promise could be a millstone. But they counter that Republicans’ core argument, particularly from their most conservative candidates, is for outright repeal: House Republicans, including many running for key Senate seats, have voted more than 40 times to scrap the entire law.
Amid platitudes, tax study may happen A4 Thursday, January 2, 2014
BY HAROLD MORGAN NEW MEXICO PROGRESS
To conclude from the New Mexico Tax Research Legislative Outlook Conference that tax reform is in the air, as did one report, is to vastly overstate reality. A more grounded reaction to the legislator and interest group discussions is that conversation about conversation about tax reform might be in the air. First, the speaker platitudes and obvious generalities. Mark Lautman, economic development consultant to the interim Jobs Council committee: For economic development in New Mexico, “we need to make some big changes.” The biggest problem is “just defining the term…Ultimately economic development means to grow your economy a little faster than your population.” And best of all, “You can’t plan an economy. Everybody knows this. But you

have to.” Fred Nathan, Think New Mexico, about some proposals by his organization: “The focus ought to be on solutions rather than ideology. Broaden and strengthen the private sector economy. Create a climate for all businesses to be successful.” Rep. Tom Taylor, R-Farmington, member of a panel of legislators: “Tax systems are just that, systems. We need to have a complete understanding of our economic system.” Conversation about having a conversation about our tax system
Roswell Daily Record
comes in the form of discussions about a study of the tax system. Such a study got a couple of snippets of mention in a friendly exchange between Sen. Carlos Cisneros, Questa Democrat who chairs the interim Revenue Stabilization and Tax Policy Committee, and Sen. John Arthur Smith, Deming Democrat who is vice chair of the Legislative Finance Committee and chairs the Senate Finance Committee during sessions. The proposed study seems to take off from the truly and delightfully radical Senate Bill 368 and House Bill 369, introduced in the 2013 session by Taylor and fellow Farmington Republican Sen. Bill Sharer. The Sharer-Taylor bill followed the tax mantra of low rates, broad base and no exemptions, not even for Girl Scout cookies, and eliminating personal and corporate income taxes and others. Girl Scout types have torn hair in anti-cookie tax tantrums over
the years. My distant acquaintance with cookie sales suggests that troop leaders probably could deal with collecting gross receipts taxes and that exposing the girls to the issue would be useful. Cookies are not price-driven (within limits). Buyers go for the aura of Thin Mints and goodness of the girls. The history of gross receipts taxes is one of shrinking the base through a bazillion exemptions and raising rates, Sharer told the conference. Rates push 9 percent these days, led by Ruidoso (8.625 percent) and Gallup (8.3125 percent), followed by Logan, San Jon and Tucumcari, all at 8.125 percent. Of this group, only Ruidoso can claim a degree of prosperity. Passing the bill wasn’t the point, Sharer said. Rather, it was to start the conversation. A number of committees heard presentations and were interested. Cisneros said he understood that money for a tax reform study would be in House Bill 2, the main budget bill. Smith
agreed. Meanwhile, back at the legislative exemption ranch, it’s business as usual, complete with Republican culprits. House Bills 14 and 24, already introduced, would add holes in the gross receipts tax base. HB 14, from Cisneros and Albuquerque Republican Rep. James White, would allow deduction of receipts from aircraft maintenance or selling aircraft parts. In HB 24, Rep. Bob Wooley, Roswell Republican, wants to exempt receipts from the sale of “commercial or military carrier(s)” weighing more than 10,000 pounds. Tom Clifford, Secretary of the Department of Finance and Administration, and House Speaker Ken Martinez, both claimed that “partisan bickering” (Martinez’ phrase) consumes a small amount of legislative time. Take them at their word. But watch for the Girl Scouts.
‘Tolerance’ includes acceptance of redneck morality
If it looks like a countrified hillbilly redneck and acts like a countrified hillbilly redneck, expect it to talk like a countrified hillbilly redneck. View the rube as a small part of this great country’s multicultural population. The unfathomably successful A&E show “Duck Dynasty” isn’t about ducks. It’s about a God-fearing, rural Christian family that doesn’t give a darn about modern sensitivity. Millions of TV viewers gawk at the rags-toriches inventors of to-die-for duck calls. The show has generated billions (with a “b”) in advertising and licensing revenues. People watch them precisely because they’re not homogeneous. They are throwbacks who happily cling to religious beliefs no longer acceptable to urbanites and corporate types. Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson shocked much of conventional society, and heads of A&E, by characterizing homosexuality as a sin during an interview with GQ magazine. He spoke about the wrath of hell a litany of sinners may endure. He spoke carelessly about historical oppression of black Americans. He spoke his mind, without concern for approval. As the politically correct enforcers of preapproved values and speech gasp with dismay, more videos and transcripts emerge about other shocking Robertson statements. He told a gathering at Sportsmen’s Ministry in Georgia that women are too old to wed by the time they turn 20. “Look, you wait ‘till they get to be about 20 years old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket. You gotta marry these girls when they’re 15 or 16, they’ll pick your ducks,” Robertson said. Robertson would have shocked no one a century ago. Instead, acceptance of sexual orientations beyond the conventional boundaries of one man and one woman shocked the average listener. Common practices of today, such as divorce, were considered radical, extreme and shameful within the lifetimes of today’s retirees. Society has worked for decades to accept that which used to seem extreme. The societal decision to embrace “tolerance” as a value explains why new generations have come to accept same-sex couples as nothing remarkable. A society that embraces tolerance of oncetaboo values and lifestyles should not feign outrage in response to those who retain beliefs that sound extreme by modern standards. Tolerance means we accept radicalsounding ideas. If we’re going to police society for decorum, we’ll have a hard time knowing where to start. TV brings to our living rooms programming with titles that shock before the shows begin. Discovery Fit & Health gave us “I Was Impaled,” featuring people with pipes and rebar through various parts of their bodies. TLC gave us “My Giant Face Tumor.” Investigation Discovery broadcast “Wives With Knives,” featuring women who have killed or maimed in response to jealousy, greed or abuse. “Amish Mafia,” on Discovery, portrays men with giant guns who protect members of their religious tribe in Pennsylvania. National Geographic Channel gave us “American Gypsies” and “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding.” Discovery Health distributes “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant,” which features women who give birth, usually in toilets, without knowledge of the pregnancy. We’ve lost count of the shows that feature women, motivated by greed, who con rich men into marrying them. Foreign tyrants, to this day, torture homosexuals. Throughout much of the Islamic world, homosexuality and adultery remain crimes punishable by death. Our government associates diplomatically with leaders of those countries. One might expect a modicum of outrage from those who care so deeply about the values of rednecks on TV. Americans enjoy a civilized, diverse, tolerant, multicultural society. In the mix, we should expect the likes of Phil Robertson and family. None need embrace their beliefs, but let’s drop the self-righteous displays of overblown, faux outrage. It’s so intolerant.

Defusing the explosive conversation on fracking
Hydraulic fracturing started out as an “exploding torpedo” back in 1865. Today, nearly 150 years later, the actual process has made giant technological strides, but now, it’s the topic that’s explosive. Over the holidays, I was part of, or aware of, several conversations about fracking. From my speaking and writing on the topic, from radio interviews with listener call-ins, and private conversations, I know that when the topic of fracking comes up, reactions are often explosive — even to the point of causing family feuds. People react dramatically because of a lack of
DEAR DOCTOR K: I just found out I’m pregnant with twins. How will this pregnancy be different from my last one? DEAR READER: Congratulations! Along with double the diapers and late-night feedings, you’ll experience double the love, laughs and fun. But, yes, you will have to deal with some challenges. In the United States, twins occur in one out of every 35 births. Twins can be fraternal or identical. Fraternal twins occur when two eggs are fertilized. This produces two embryos; they are not identical, and may not even be the same gender. In fact, fraternal twins are genetically no more similar than other siblings. In contrast, identical twins

There are accusations that fracking is taking billions of gallons of water out of the hydrologic cycle — which

A multiple pregnancy differs from a singleton pregnancy in several ways. For example: — Pregnancy symptoms, such as morning sickness and breast enlargement, may be
poses an exacerbated problem in the arid Southwest. The process of hydraulic fracturing has advanced from the first nitroglycerin “torpedo” that was shot down a well hole on April 25, 1865, and well acidizing that was used in the 1930s to enhance productivity, to the modern mix of high pressure, water, and chemicals that began in 1947 in Grant County, Kansas — and it continues to evolve. In a piece addressing water used in fracking, The Economist describes the process this way: “Water injected at high pressure into rock deep underground during the
process of hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking,’ often returns to the surface as brine, having picked up a lot of salt on its journey. It is also contaminated with chemicals from the fracking process itself.” Today, less and less freshwater is being used. A typical frack job can use 2-3 million gallons of water and lasts about 3 days. The procedure can result in decades of oil or gas production. With the development of new technologies, the fracking process can be done with brackish water that may be as

You’ll be advised to gain between 35 and 45 pounds if your weight was in the nor mal range to start with. Many doctors recommend gaining an average of 1.5 pounds per week during the second and third trimesters. — Symptoms of later pregnancy may occur earlier and be more severe. Your heavy, stretched uterus will place pressure on your organs. This may cause fatigue, shortness of breath, heartburn, constipation, pelvic discomfort, uri-

These include preterm labor, premature rupture of the amniotic membranes, pre-eclampsia, placenta previa, prolonged labor and newborn problems. — You’ll have a higher chance of premature delivery.

Can trees change gender under certain circumstances? Roswell Daily Record
Q. I read somewhere that trees can change sex. Is that true? It does not make sense. How can it happen? A. This is a complicated question. When I first heard about this, I was skeptical. While teaching a class of Master Gardeners experienced gardeners in the class mentioned several trees that had changed sex after an extremely severe winter. They described some male ginko trees in an open air courtyard area that changed from male to female following the severe winter. They had previously taken lunch breaks under these trees, but after the trees began producing very foul-smelling fruit, they
could no longer eat lunch in that courtyard. Other gardeners described male ash trees beginning to produce to produce seed following excessive pruning. Some other gardeners went on to suggest that severe drought stress may have caused some seedless/fruitless (male) trees to begin producing seed. I have found mention of plants changing

sex in scientific literate as well. It seems to be real! As I thought more about this phenomenon, I began to consider how plants and animals are quite different. Most plants are monecious (male and female on one plant) while hermaphroditic animals are not as common (earthworms are examples of animal hermaphrodites). Since plants

commonly have male and female flowers on the same plants and occasionally producing plants with flowers with only a single functional sex, it is not surprising that they can revert to a bisexual plant or even produce the other sex. Mammals and many other animals have X and Y chromosomes. If the animal has two X chromosomes, then the animal will be female; if the animal has one X and one Y chromosomes, then the animal will be male. This was discovered in the early 1900s in mealworms. Mammals, including human beings, determine sex in this manner. Some other animals (many reptiles for example) do
not have this type of sex determination; rather their sex is determined by environmental factors. So, it should not be surprising that plants can be likewise affected by their environment or stress conditions from the environment and management practices employed by gardeners.

POUDRE VALLEY HOSPITAL URGES HEPATITIS C TESTS FOR T COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Poudre Valley Hospital is recommending hepatitis C testing for some patients after an employee at the hospital’s intensive care unit was suspected of stealing intravenous painkillers. The hospital sent letters Saturday to 210 patients and some employees asking them to get shots if they were there from Sept. 2, 2011, and Aug. 28, 2012. Officials would only identify the employee as a man, they declined to
say what position he held. No arrests have been made and the man was fired. So far, no cases of liver disease associated with the virus have been reported. The hospital is asking patients to seek testing as soon as possible. “We want patients to be assured at this time there are no reported cases of patients acquiring hepatitis C and no evidence of harm to patients, but we want to make sure they are absolutely

much as ten times as salty as seawater. Producers in west Texas are fracking with the brackish water from the Santa Rosa aquifer. They are then recycling the produced water — a byproduct of oil and natural gas drilling, and the flowback water — the fluid pushed back out of the well during fracking. Both for ms of wastewater have historically been trucked to underground disposal wells. Now, instead of trucking wastewater to a remote location, mobile systems can treat the water onsite and condition it to meet almost any specification the driller wants — resulting in a reduction of expensive truck traffic. The portable systems can treat 20,000-30,000 barrels of water per day. These new water solutions can reduce the total dissolved solids in the water from as high as 200,000 to below 200. For reference, the Environmental Protection Agency’s standard for drinking water is 500. The same water can be recycled and used over and over again. The result of these new procedures is,

according to The Economist: “Clean water …pure enough to be used for irrigation, or even drinking water. …Alternatively, it can be re-injected into the ground during the next frack.” Rather than taking water out of the hydrologic cycle, the oil-and-gas industry is actually often taking formerly unusable water, using it in fracking and then cleaning it up to a level where it can be introduced into the cycle as either irrigation or drinking water. Many companies are developing revolutionary water treatment processes that neuter one of the biggest arguments against fracking.
In a Christmas conversation, I was asked: “Why do they need chemicals? Why don’t they just frack with water?” I explained that the so-called chemicals are needed to provide lubrication for the tiny particles of sand that hold open microscopic cracks in the “fractured” rock that allow the oil or gas to escape. “As a woman, I am sure you’ve had your fingers swell. That makes it hard to get your rings off.” She nodded. “What do you do then?” I queried. “Soap up my similar growth and weight gain. Ultrasound also provides valuable information about the position of the fetuses. This information is especially important at the time of delivery. It can help determine whether it will be safest for you to deliver vaginally or by cesarean section. So this pregnancy may well be somewhat more challenging than previous pregnancies. But you’ll have two wonderful children. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Senior citizens (50 and above) in Chaves County are invited to enroll in free basic computer classes offered by the Chaves County Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) in partnership with ENMU-Roswell. Four classes will be available over the next several months. The classes will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, and Feb. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. Sean Davis, RSVP program director, will teach the classes, which will be held in the Instructional Technology Center, room 107 at 23 W. Mathis on the ENMU-Roswell campus. Bus shuttle service will be available to those interested in a free ride to the campus. The ENMU-Roswell bus will leave from the Roswell Convention and Civic Center (912 N. Main St.) parking lot at 8:30 a.m. on each class day. When the class is finished, the bus will drive seniors back from the campus to the Civic Center. To enroll in any of the classes and reserve a space on the bus, call Davis at 623-3960. The classes are open to all senior citizens in Chaves County, not just RSVP members. The classes will cover computer and technology basics, such as navigating the internet, composing e-mails, joining social networks, understanding cell phones and using e-readers.
hands,” she replied. Bingo! That is the role the chemicals play in the fracking process. But those chemicals are now mostly food-based and can be consumed with no ill effects — both Governor Hickenlooper (D-CO) and CNBC’s Jim Cramer have had a drink. So, even if the chemicals did somehow defy geology and migrate several miles from the fracked well through the layers of sedimentary rock to the aquifer, they are not harmful.
Stories about flaming faucets are real, but they have nothing to do with fracking. Natural gas, or methane, was found in water wells long before any fracking was done in the area. In fact, it was the gassy smell that often alerted explorers to the potential oil and gas in the region. Oil-and-gas drilling didn’t cause the flaming faucet phenomenon. Lies about hydraulic fracturing are rampant. If fossil fuel opponents can spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt about fracking — with the goal of causing a federal fracking ban, they can virtually stop oil-and-gas development in America, as it
is estimated that 95 percent of producing wells have been fracked. Without American ingenuity and increasing production, gasoline prices and utility bills will skyrocket. Economic ruin will reign. America will, once again be beholden to increasingly hostile foreign sources. A fracking conversation shouldn’t be explosive. Today’s hydraulic fracturing is really benign, American technology that is ecologically sound and economically advantageous. Keep these facts in mind. Not everyone will listen — but if more people know the truth they can help defuse the explosive conversation.

2 SUFFER MINOR INJURIES IN HOUSTON PIPELINE FIRE
LA POR TE, Texas (AP) — At least two workers have been hurt in a fire on a petrochemical pipeline along the Houston Ship Channel. Enterprise Products Partners spokesman Rick Rainey says the workers were treated and released after fire erupted late Tuesday morning in a metering area of its Morgan’s Point marine terminal where barges are loaded mainly with natural gas liquids. The nature of the injuries wasn’t imme-
diately known but Rainey says the two are contract employees working in the area. The operation east of Houston normally has about two dozen employees plus contract workers. Rainey says the plant has been shut, crews have been working to isolate the area and firefighters have been pouring water on flames. The terminal primarily handles products from an Enterprise plant in Mont Belvieu, about 15 miles away.

Analysis: Israel, Palestinians face hard choices RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry retur ns to the region Thursday, the American message to the Israeli and Palestinian leaders is clear: It’s time to start making hard decisions. Kerry is bringing his own ideas for the outlines of a peace deal, and early indications are that the plan will include hard-toswallow choices for both sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would likely have to recognize Israel’s pre-1967 war frontier as the starting point for border talks with the Palestinians, an ideological reversal that would put him on a collision course with his hardline base. Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas fears he’ll be pressured to recognize Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, a step he believes would abrogate the rights of Palestinian refugees and their descendants. A senior State Department official said Kerry would not impose ideas or seek final answers on this trip. Instead, he is allowing time for debate during the visit, which includes meetings with Netanyahu on Thursday and Abbas on Friday. However, the of ficial suggested that the leaders will eventually have to decide whether they are on board and that qualified acceptance watered down by reservations is not sufficient. Israeli-Palestinian negotiations resumed last
summer, and just four months r emain until a U.S.-set target date for a final agreement. Underlying the ongoing impasse is the lack of agr eement on gr ound rules. Kerry hopes that progress will be possible once the two sides agree on the outlines of a deal. Kerry has kept his ideas for a framework under wraps, but has said the contours of a deal are known after two decades of intermittent negotiations. The U.S. says a Palestinian state should be established alongside Israel, with the border between them based, with some modifications, on Israel’s 1967 fr ontier, befor e it captur ed the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.

South Sudan peace talks to open in Ethiopia Palestinian ambassador
JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — Negotiators from South Sudan’s two warring sides arrived Wednesday in Ethiopia for peace talks, and a U.N. official urged both forces to bring the world’s newest country “back from the brink.” Fighting continued in Bor, a gateway city to the capital of Juba, a government official said. Bor is just 120 kilometers (75 miles) from Juba. Bor, the capital of Jonglei state, is the center of ethnically based violence stemming from the political rivalry between President Salva Kiir and ousted Vice President Riek Machar, the rebel leader accused of mounting a failed coup attempt. Kiir declared a state of emergency Wednesday in Jonglei and Unity, two states where rebel forces have gained the upper hand in recent fighting. Machar said Tuesday he would send his forces from Bor to Juba, but that threat was played down by Hilde Johnson, the U.N. representative in South
Sudan. “I think we need to take quotations with pinches of salt at this point of time,” Johnson said. “On Jan. 1, the country is at a fork in the road, but it can still be saved from further major escalation of violence,” she said. Johnson urged Kiir and Machar to use the new talks to move toward peace, adding: “They can still pull the country back from the brink.” The fighting has killed more than 1,000 people, the U.N. says. Pro-Machar forces in Bor appear to be taking defensive positions, Johnson said. The fighting in Bor has displaced about 60,000 people, making it the latest humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. The international Red Cross said the road from Bor to the nearby Awerial area was lined with people waiting for boats so they could cross the Nile River. “There are tens of thousands of people here who literally picked up their kids and a few belongings
James Avery of ‘Fresh Prince’ fame dead at 68 NEW YORK (AP) — James Avery, the bulky character actor who laid down the law at home and on the job as the Honorable Philip Banks in “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” has died. Avery’s publicist, Cynthia Snyder, told The Associated Press that Avery died Tuesday in Glendale, Calif., following complications from open heart surgery. He was 68, Snyder said. Avery, who stood more than 6 feet tall, played the family patriarch and a wealthy attorney and judge on the popular TV comedy that launched the acting career of Will Smith as Banks’ troublemaking nephew. The sitcom, which aired on NBC from 1990 to 1996, was set in the Banks’ mansion, to which Smith’s character was sent from Philadelphia when things got tough in his own neighborhood. Fans came to know the imposing Banks as “Uncle Phil.” Avery liked to say that the way to be an actor was to act, and he had a busy and diverse career before, during and after “Fresh Prince.” His TV credits included “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NYPD Blue” and “Dallas,” and among his many films were “Fletch,” “Nightflyers”
and fled to the first safe place they could get to, which is Awerial,” said David Nash, head of mission for Doctors Without Border. “They are camped out under trees with no sanitation and no safe drinking water.” Two teams of five negotiators each arrived in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and were expected to begin talks later Wednesday, said Getachew Reda, a spokesman for Ethiopia’s prime minister. The U.N. is “gravely concerned” about mounting evidence of gross violations of inter national human rights law, including the extra-judicial killings of civilians and captured soldiers, it said Tuesday. The U.N.’s estimate of 1,000 dead was given days ago and the number of fatalities is believed to be higher as a result of the new fighting around the country, including in Bor.

and “8 Million Ways to Die.” His voice alone brought him many jobs, notably as Shredder in the animated TV series “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” According to Snyder, he will be seen in the film “Wish I Was Here,” directed by Zach Braff and scheduled to premiere later this month at the Sundance festival. Avery grew up in Atlantic City, N.J., and served in the Navy in Vietnam in the late 1960s. After returning to the states, he settled in California and studied drama and literature at the University of California at San Diego. He is survived by his wife, Barbara, and stepson Kevin Waters.
Funeral services are scheduled for 2 p.m., on Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, at LaGrone Funeral Chapel for Kevin S. “Kevo” Avery, 37, of Roswell, who passed away on Dec. 28, 2013. Jeffery Story will officiate. Kevin was born on Dec. 30, 1975, in Okinawa, Japan, to Lars Avery and Yolanda Story, who survive him. He came to Roswell 13 years ago from San Diego, Calif. He was employed as technician specialist at Jet Auto Glass. Kevin loved life, the San Diego Chargers, golfing, playing Call of Duty online, spending time with his family and friends, fishing and riding his bike. He is also survived by his girlfriend, Melissa Martinez; sons: Kevin Scott Avery Jr., Kahtrel Semier Avery and Kamyl Christian Serrano, all of Roswell; daughter, Brianna Mae Pearce, of Roswell; brothers: Jeffery Story and his wife, Cecilia, of San Diego, Calif., and Tyrone Avery, of Chattanooga, Tenn.; sisters: Leann Rayle, of San Diego, Calif., and Tomeco Avery, of Chattanooga,
pulled out of parts of Bor because they were concerned about having to kill the “young boys” who fill the rebel ranks, one analyst said.
South Sudan’s military “was told to withdraw,” said Edmund Yakani, the executive director of the Jubabased group Community Empowerment for Progress, citing the accounts of contacts in Bor. “They communicated that these are young boys and we are killing them like nothing.”
Gover nment troops in Bor face renegade forces allied with a pro-Machar tribal militia known as the “White Army” because its young members of the Nuer tribe smear their faces with ash to keep insects away.
Johnson said that 240 U.N. police are to arrive later Wednesday in South Sudan to help police refugee camps. The U.N. says up to 180,000 people have been displaced internally by the violence, including about 68,000 at U.N. camps.

in Prague killed in blast PRAGUE (AP) — The Palestinian ambassador to the Czech Republic died Wednesday in an explosion that occurred when he opened an old safe that had been left untouched for more than 20 years, officials said. Ambassador Jamal alJamal, 56, was at home with his family at the time of the explosion, according to Palestinian Embassy spokesman Nabil El-Fahel. Al-Jamal was seriously injured and rushed to a hospital where he died, according to police spokeswoman Andrea Zoulova. Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said no foul play was suspected, noting that the safe had been left untouched for more than 20 years. It also appeared that the door of the safe had been booby-trapped, according to Zoulova. It was unclear how al-Jamal tried to open it or what type of safe it was. The safe was recently moved from the old

embassy building, but it had come from a building that used to house the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s offices in the 1980s, Malki said. “The ambassador decided to open it. After he opened it, apparently something happened inside (the safe) and went off,” Malki told The Associated Press. It was not immediately clear how Malki knew the safe had been untouched for more than 20 years or why and when the safe would have been boobytrapped. During the 1980s — before the fall of the Soviet Union — the PLO had close ties with the Eastern bloc countries. In recent years, relations have been tense and the Czech government was seen as largely taking Israel’s side in the Mideast conflict, said Nabil Shaath, a foreign affairs veteran and leading official in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement.

‘20 Feet’ singers to step into Rose Bowl spotlight
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — If music was a football game, Lisa Fischer has already been a quarterback and scored game-winning touchdowns. Fischer’s discography includes a number of hits, including the chart-topping, Grammy-winning 1991 “How Can I Ease the Pain.” She knows what it’s like to be winner. And yet the singer admitted to a bit of anxiety over per for ming the national anthem at Wednesday’s Rose Bowl game. “(I’m) a ball of fiery, happy nerves,” Fischer said shortly before a rehearsal Tuesday afternoon. For the first time in recent memory, a vocal group — including veterans Fischer, Merry Clayton and Darlene Love, as well as relative newcomer Judith Hill — will sing “The Star -Spangled Banner” just before the start of one of college football’s highestrated televised games of the year. The anthem is usually performed by one of the team’s marching bands. One estimate, from the San Jose Mercury News, predicted that some 17 million will be watching Michigan State take on Stanford. That audience will also be hearing the quartet, composed of the principal subjects of the film “20 Feet from Stardom,” which documents the trials, tribulations and triumphs of contemporary pop, rock and soul background singers. But, for the Rose Bowl, the four will be taking the leads. Noted singer Clayton, perhaps best known for

nees, which will be unveiled in a Jan. 16 telecast from Los Angeles. The success of the movie has brought the four busy backup singers a flurry of fresh, front-and-center opportunities, Fischer said. “I think it means that we get a chance to come out of the darkness, into the light,” she explained. “20 Feet from Stardom” is now available on iTunes. The 100th Rose Bowl game was telecast at 5 p.m. EST (2 p.m. PST) New Year’s Day on ESPN.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Connor Cook passed for a career-high 332 yards and hit Tony Lippett with a tiebreaking 25-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter, leading No. 4 Michigan State to a 24-20 victory over No. 5 Stanford on Wednesday night in the 100th Rose Bowl.

LSU beats Iowa 21-14 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — What Anthony Jennings lacked in experience, LSU more than compensated for with a talented supporting cast in the Outback Bowl. Jennings made plenty of freshman mistakes Wednesday, however they weren’t nearly as costly as they could have been for the 14th-ranked Tigers with Jeremy Hill rushing for 216 yards and two touchdowns in a 21-14 victory. The second quarterback in school history to make his first college start in a bowl game, Jennings fretted over an interception that helped Iowa (8-5) get back in the game. But with the outcome on the line, he simply turned and handed the ball to Hill, who made sure LSU (10-3) would not lose. “Anthony in his first start was tight,”
coach Les Miles said, adding that Jennings learned some lessons will be beneficial moving forward with his career. “He wasn’t perfect by any stretch,” Miles said. “But he did what he had to do.” Craig Loston’s fourth-quarter interception stopped a potential tying drive, giving Hill a chance to put the game out of reach by carrying four times for 87 yards on a six-play, 92-yard march that gave LSU (10-3) a 21-7 lead. Iowa (8-5) pulled within a touchdown for the second time in 4 minutes after Jordan Cotton returned the ensuing kickoff to the Tigers 4. Jennings ran for a first-quarter touchdown, but the true freshman struggled to hit open receivers while completing 7
No. 8 South Carolina too much for No. 19 Badgers
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw’s career has been marked by a mix of special moments and others he’d like to forget. He made sure his final game was one he’ll be able to savor. Shaw was responsible for five touchdowns, including three passing, and No. 8 South Carolina outlasted No. 19 Wisconsin 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl on Wednesday. The Gamecocks’ senior was named the game’s MVP after picking apart the Badgers defense, completing 22 of 25 passes for 312 yards. Shaw also had scores rushing and receiving. South Carolina (11-2) won its third straight bowl game to cap its third straight 11-win season. After untimely injuries and losses culminated in the Gamecocks missing a spot in the BCS, Shaw said See TOO MUCH, Page B3

Knights knock off Bears
Central Florida’s Blake Bortles (5) dashes for a rushing touchdown as Baylor’s Terrell Burt (13) defends during the second half of the Fiesta Bowl, Wednesday.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Central Florida was supposed to be a patsy for Baylor in its first BCS bowl. The Knights wanted no part of it, turning the Fiesta Bowl into a big-play party. Blake Bortles threw for 301 yards and accounted for four touchdowns, Storm Johnson ran for three more scores, and No. 15 Central Florida pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the bowl season by outlasting No. 6 Baylor 52-42 on Wednesday night. A 17-point underdog, Central Florida (12-1) didn’t back down from the big, bad Bears, racing past the nation’s top offensive team with an array of big plays. The jumped out to an early 14-point and kept rolling, piling up 556 total yards in the highest-scoring game in Fiesta Bowl history. Rannell Hall had four catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns, and Johnson ran for 124 yards to give the Knights a rousing BCS bowl debut. Baylor (11-2) had a hard time keeping up with the Knights, gaining 550 total yards but losing 135 on 17 penalties. Bortles threw for three touchdowns on 20-of-31 passing and ran for another score.

Bryce Petty ran for three touchdowns and threw for 356 yards and two more scores for Baylor. Lache Seastrunk ran for 117 yards. The Fiesta Bowl was the BCS comingout party for Baylor and Central Florida before college football’s switch to a playoff system next season. The Bears had been building toward this since Art Briles became coach in 2009, winding up his high-octane offense to lead the nation in scoring and churn out the second-most yards in FBS history. Central Florida had a slower rise under George O’Leary. The coach who was fired by Notre Dame five days after being hired for lying on his resume has built his reputation back up in Orlando, taking a program that went winless in 2004 to the inaugural American Athletic Conference title and automatic BCS berth this year. The matchup was projected to be like the 2011 Fiesta Bowl, when mighty Oklahoma rolled over Connecticut 48-20. The Knights weren’t listening.

Oklahoma expects the best from Alabama B2 Thursday, January 2, 2014
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Whatever Bob Stoops may have said about the overall strength of the Southeastern Conference, that apparently doesn’t apply when it comes to the challenge he sees before 11th-ranked Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. The Sooners’ coach made that clear on the eve of Thursday night’s matchup with No. 3 Alabama. “In my eyes, they’re still the best team in the country,” Stoops said about the 2011 and 2012 national champs Wednesday. “They’ve been the best team in the country for three years, up to the very last play of the regular season.” Last spring, Stoops challenged the notion that the SEC — home of the last seven national champions — is the strongest league in the nation, calling some stories about SEC supremacy “propaganda.” His Sooners (10-2) have a chance to back that up in a big way by beating ‘Bama (11-1), but Stoops knows that won’t be easy. Oklahoma is rarely a doubledigit underdog, but odds makers have listed the Crimson Tide as a 16-point favorite. Alabama coach Nick Saban only hopes his players don’t buy into the spread or anything else that might over-inflate their confidence. The last time Alabama played in the Sugar Bowl was under similar circumstances. The Tide had just lost to Florida in the SEC title game, knocking ‘Bama out of the national title picture. Then the Tide came to the Big Easy as more than a touchdown favorite and got run out of the

in 1993. Many current Alabama players won a national title in the Superdome two seasons ago. Oklahoma, meanwhile, has been to six Sugar Bowls, winning four.
QB MYSTERY Oklahoma has used two quarterbacks this season, freshman Trevor Knight and junior Blake Bell. Stoops has declined to discuss who would start how or much he expected either to play. “When you watch these two quarterbacks, we kind of go to some plays a little bit more with one guy than we do another, so why give someone the advantage of practicing those plays more than another set of plays?” Stoops said. “It hopefully has made them have to work a bigger package on what we like to do with each guy.”

This season, Alabama’s bid for a third-straight national title was upended by Aubur n in late November. “A bowl game is all about mindset,” Saban said. “It’s really hard to bring the season to the bowl game because the amount of time in between opportunities to play. So how your team sort of resets their mindset is really important. “Sometimes if you’re an underdog, you have a little bit more to prove,” Saban continued. “So that mindset is a little better maybe than a team that doesn’t have sort of the right motivation.”

Here are five things to know about the Sugar Bowl:
FAMILY FRIENDS When Saban and Stoops talk about the mutual respect they have for one another, they’re not just being polite. Stoops’ father, Ron, was a high school coach in Youngstown, Ohio, where Saban often made recruiting visits as a college assistant and played cards with Ron Stoops’ brother, Bob, for whom Oklahoma’s coach is named. Saban used to invite Ron and the elder Bob Stoops to observe his practices, and the families have even dined in each
other’s homes. “This is a relationship that goes way back for many, many years, and I think it’s because of the respect that I had for the family and the quality of people that they were,” Saban said. “And I certainly have the same respect for the coaching fraternity that comes from that family.” FAMILIAR SURROUNDINGS Alabama is playing in its 14th Sugar Bowl, having won eight. Before the BCS era, the Sugar Bowl was a game in which the Crimson Tide could win national titles, doing so for the last time

Saints offense has kept playoff-savvy core intact
METAIRIE, La. (AP) — As Drew Brees heads into the playoffs with New Orleans for a fifth time in eight years, he has a lot of familiar faces joining him. Five key players on this season’s offense were part of the 2006 Saints, who went to the NFC title game. Two more arrived a season later and were part of the 2009 Super Bowl team. They hope their experience together aids them as they prepare to make another postseason run, starting in Philadelphia on Saturday night. “We have been through a lot together,” said Brees, who has been teammates with receivers Marques Colston and Lance Moore, as well as offensive linemen Jahri Evans and Zach Strief, for eight years. “We know the expectation level. We know the preparation. I think there is a level of pride that comes along with that — and accountability. You want to perform well for each other. You know how much we have invested.” In 2007, receiver Robert Meachem arrived as a first-round draft choice and running back Pierre Thomas as an undrafted free agent. They were key contributors on the 2009 team that won a Super Bowl. Meachem left in 2012 when he was offered a free agent deal by San Diego that New Orleans wasn’t willing to match. But he struggled in to fit in with the Chargers’ offense, and when San Diego released him at the end of this past preseason, Saints coach Sean Payton acted quickly to bring him back to New Orleans. Meachem has not been as productive this season as his previous three in New Orleans, but he’s had some big catches, including a pair of touchdowns in victories over Arizona and Tampa Bay. Meachem acknowledged a greater comfort level when he returned to New Orleans. “To me, they’re like your family away from family,” said Meachem, recalling how supportive Brees, Colston and Moore were when he was struggling with a knee injury early in his career, and then when he was working to refine his techniques and presnap reads. “They went above and beyond to help me get better,” Meachem said. “For me, having Colston, Lance, Pierre, Drew and Strief — the guys who were here when I was here — means a lot. ... You see how happy they are when you have success because we worked so hard together and it pays off.” Moore said the Saints shouldn’t underestimate the Eagles simply because they don’t have as many players who’ve experienced winning in the postseason together. Experience, he said, is not an overriding factor in who wins in the NFL. For Moore, the longevity of key players on the Saints’ offense was more a testament to their unselfishness and commitment to Payton’s offensive system. “We almost have an ultimate trust for each other and one thing that this team specifically does is we want everybody to be successful,” Moore said. “That’s something that could be somewhat unique in that we’re all like that. The result of the whole is more important than each other’s success and I think that’s why we’ve been able to be so good here.” During the last eight seasons, Brees has passed for 38,733 yards, more than any other NFL quarterback during that span. Colston, Moore and Meachem have had a lot to do with that, as has Thomas, with his knack for turning screens into big gains. More recently, tight end Jimmy Graham, drafted in 2010, and running back Darren Sproles, signed as a free agent in 2011, have blended well into an offense that ranked fourth in the NFL this season, averaging 399.4 yards per game while Brees eclipsed 5,000 yards passing for an unprecedented fourth time. Now the Saints are in the playoffs for the fourth time in five years, and they confident that their chemistry and experience makes them a particularly strong No. 6 seed. “I would say it is pretty rare that you have that many guys to be here for that period of time,” Brees said. “When it is all said and done, if we can look back and say man, we
did some pretty special stuff together regular season, playoffs, championships, that’s what it is all about.”
Weddle: Chargers ‘ecstatic’ to be in playoffs
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A month ago, no one could have imagined the San Diego Chargers would be practicing on New Year’s Day. The Bolts were manhandled by the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 1, losing 17-10 to fall to 5-7. The playoffs were a far-off dream. And there the Chargers were on Wednesday, practicing on a sunny, 72degree afternoon for their wild-card game Sunday at Cincinnati. The Bengals were the last team to beat the Chargers, who have won four straight games. “It’s always better when you have a familiar opponent and you can see how players play, what we did wrong, what we did good,” Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle said. “Obviously it’s going to be a tough challenge going into their place and trying to get a win, but we can’t be more ecstatic with the opportunity we have as a football team. We surely missed this chance over the last three years. I know I have, so we can’t wait to get on the road and go play a playoff game.” The Chargers haven’t been in the playoffs since 2009, when they were 13-3 and earned the AFC’s No. 2 seed before being embarrassed at home in a 17-14 loss to the New York Jets in the divisional round. Norv Turner was in his third year as San Diego’s coach and LaDainian Tomlinson was in his ninth and final season with the Chargers. Only six players remain from that team: Weddle, quarterback Philip Rivers, tight end Antonio Gates, punter Mike Scifres, center Nick Hardwick and right guard Jeromey Clary. San Diego hasn’t won a playoff game since 2008, when it won its final four games and took advantage of a collapse by Denver to win the AFC West at 8-8. San Diego beat Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in overtime in a home wild-card game before losing at Pittsburgh. To get another playoff win, the Chargers will have to play better than they did against the Bengals a month ago. Although that game was tied 7-7 at halftime, the Bengals dominated the second half. They finished with 164 yards rushing, held Rivers to just 252 yards passing, forced three turnovers and jumped on a big breakdown in coverage. Weddle thinks the Chargers can do better against the run if they “just understand what they’re doing, play physical, play tough, know what style of game it’s going to be and tackle. We need to tackle better as a group,” he said. “We’ll be ready for that. I’m not too worried that we won’t be able to stop the run. We should be able to get in there, battle, fight and see what happens.” Rivers, San Diego’s other Pro Bowler this season, said the Chargers have to do a better job of finishing drives. “I want to be very respectful because they had a lot to do with it,” Rivers said. “They caused the turnovers and they covered us. Some of it may not have been the best throw. They certainly were out there causing us to not get in the end zone and our execution wasn’t great. We’ve got to execute better. It’s tough when you’re going against a good defense. Baltimore got down in there twice and only gets three, and that can end up being the difference. You can’t force touchdowns. Points are points in the postseason.” Rivers mentioned the AFC championship game following the 2007 season, when San Diego lost 21-12 at New England. “We kicked four field goals. You get a few touchdowns there and who knows. We know how valuable touchdowns are,” Rivers said.
AP source: Smith reaches deal to coach Tampa Bay
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith is set to take on the challenge of rebuilding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Two people familiar with Smith’s plans said Wednesday night that the coach has reached an agreement to fill the opening created by the firing of Greg Schiano following a 4-12 finish. The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement hasn’t been made. One of the people also said that former Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier will be the Bucs’ defensive coordinator.
SENIOR LEADERSHIP Alabama’s seniors include C.J. Mosely, who won the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker, and quarterback A.J. McCarron, the Heisman Trophy runner up. Those seniors who’ve redshirted have been with the program for three national titles and they’ve never closed a season with a loss. “We’ve had a great run and left a great legacy here,” Mosely said. “It would be a shame if we didn’t finish it off winning a game like this in the Sugar Bowl.” GETTING DEFENSIVE The matchup features two of the highest-rated defenses in the country. Alabama is ranked fifth, allowing 274.7 yards per game, while Oklahoma ranks 13th, allowing 336.3.
The 55-year-old Smith will replace Schiano, fired Monday after going 11-21 in two seasons in Tampa Bay. Frazier also was fired Monday. Smith was 81-63 in nine seasons with Chicago, leading the 2006 team to the Super Bowl — where the Bears lost Indianapolis. He was fired a year ago after the Bears finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons. Smith was Tampa Bay’s linebackers coach under Tony Dungy from 1996-2000, then spent three seasons as the St. Louis Rams’ defensive coordinator on Mike Martz’s staff. Smith will take over a team that made strides on defense after acquiring cornerback Darrelle Revis and safety Dashon Goldson last spring, however the offense sputtered badly following the abrupt benching and subsequent release of quarterback Josh Freeman. With rookie Mike Glennon running the offense, Tampa Bay sank to last in the NFL in passing and total yards per game. One of Smith’s first orders of business figures to be deciding if Glennon, who went 4-9 as a starter while throwing for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions, showed enough to prove he’s the team’s quarterback of the future.

11-yard touchdown run. Johnson scored again on UCF’s next possession, this one on a 2-yard run. The early 14-0 lead was expected. The team leading wasn’t. Baylor finally revved up its offense late in the first quarter, scoring on a 1-yard TD sneak by Petty and Central Florida looked as if it was ready to fall apart with turnovers on three consecutive plays. Baylor only turned one of those into points: a 30-yard from Petty to Levi Norwood. Petty followed Johnson’s fumble with an interception in the end zone, just his third of the season. Then came the spectacular plays, seemingly one after another. Hall darted and dashed through Baylor’s defense for a 50yard touchdown on a screen pass, with help from Josh Reese’s downfield block. Petty hurtled himself into the end zone, flipping over UCF’s Brandon Alexander to cap a 13-yard run. That gave Baylor 659 points, breaking the NCAA record for a 13-game season set by Texas (652) in 2005. The momentum was gone shortly after, when Hall turned a swing pass into a 34yard touchdown play — assisted again by Reese — to put the Knights up 28-20 at halftime. Petty scored his third touchdown on 1-yard run in the third quarter and dashed in for the 2-point conversion to tie the game, but Central Florida still wouldn’t back down.

this performance offered some redemption. “I told the team before the game that we’ve faced every possible scenario we could possible face this season and that Wisconsin would be no different,” Shaw said. “I’m so glad the way we battled throughout the game and our defense came and played. “I couldn’t be more proud.” The game also turned out to be the final college contest for Jadeveon Clowney, who said afterward that he would forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. “Before we even put the pads on, I thought we’ve only got 60 minutes and it’s over with. I’m going to be sad about it. ... I’m excited to move forward with my life though.” Bruce Ellington caught six passes for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Shaw Roland also hauled in six catches for 112 yards. “The guys, we came together as a team today and Connor did a great job of leading us,” Ellington said. “We just came out and played.” Shaw’s receivers caught balls in traffic and in the open field, gashing a Wisconsin defense that surrendered 438 yards for the game. The Badgers also allowed two fourth-down conversions, one which set up a 22-yard touchdown pass from Shaw to Ellington that put the Gamecocks up for good late in the third quarter. Wisconsin (9-4) lost its fourth straight bowl game, failing to capitalize on 100-yard rushing

of 19 passes for 82 yards. In addition to throwing an interception that Iowa’s John Lowdermilk returned 71 yards, he was sacked four times while standing in for the injured Zach Mettenberger. C.J. Beathard replaced Jake Rudock at quarterback for Iowa on the first play of the fourth quarter. His fourth-down interception stopped one promising drive, but he also tossed a 4-yard TD pass to Kevonte Martin-Manley that trimmed Iowa’s deficit to 21-14 with 1:42 remaining. Lowder milk set up Iowa’s other TD — Mark Weisman’s 2-yard run in the third quarter — with his interception return to the LSU 1. Officials initially ruled
games from both Melvin Gordon and James White, and struggling after quarterback Joel Stave left in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. Backup Curt Phillips was intercepted twice. While the Gamecocks couldn’t contain the Badgers’ rushing attack for most of the game, Shaw and his receivers did plenty to keep South Carolina productive on offense. T railing 17-13 in the third quarter, Ellington reeled in a juggling reception near the sideline on a fourth-and-7 play. Two plays later Shaw found Ellington for the 22-yard touchdown strike to put the Gamecocks up by three. The Badgers lost Stave on the next series, and with Phillips taking over were stopped short on a fourth-down run inside the Gamecocks 30. South Carolina took advantage, and needed just six plays for Shaw to find Jerrell Adams for a 3-yard touchdown that made it 27-17 with 11:05 to play in the game. “You kind of walk a fine line between being aggressive, getting after the quarterback and containing him,” Badgers coach Gary Andersen said. “Our plan was to be aggressive. At times we didn’t get the pressure we should have and at times he was able to extend plays.” Wisconsin wasn’t done. Kenzel Doe took the ensuing kickoff and ran it back 91 yards for a score to get the Badgers back within a field goal. But Shaw went back to work. Pinned inside his own 15 to start the drive, he used a combination of runs and passes to set up his 1-yard touchdown plunge
Lowder milk, who was untouched on the return, scored. But the TD was reversed when a replay review deter mined the Iowa defender dropped the ball before crossing the goal line. “It was just an embarrassing play, and that’s not Iowa Hawkeye football. ... I really regret it and I apologize,” Lowder milk said. “It was just a sickening feeling all around. I was just so happy Mark scored. It was a bonehead play on my part.” The victory enabled LSU to finish with at least 10 wins for a school-record fourth consecutive season. The loss ended Iowa’s three-game winning streak. “Our team wanted to create a legacy, and the seniors wanted to be the first group to win 10 games four years in a row. They wanted to win a bowl

to cap a nine-play, 81-yard drive that made it 34-24. Wisconsin appeared to be done after Phillips was intercepted by Kaiwan Lewis with less than five minutes to play, but the Gamecocks gave it right back on Brandon Wilds’ fumble on the next series. The Badgers picked up a few first downs, but then Phillips was intercepted again by Skai Moore with 3:14 left to end the threat. “We were very good defensively in the fourth quarter. It was a fourth-quarter game,” South Car-
championship and they wanted to commit to playing as a team,” Miles said. “The hard work that each and every guy has went through, there was no question they were going to play hard together.” Hill, a 235-pound sophomore who rushed with 1,401 yards and 16 TDs this season, averaged 7.7 yards per carry on 28 attempts. On the clinching drive, he delivered runs of 2, 28, 20 and, finally, 37 yards for his second touchdown. He also scored on a 14-yard run in the second quarter. “Given an opportunity to close out a game, he knows what to do,” Miles said. “I took it on my shoulders that I needed to make plays to win the football game,” Hill said. “Great players have that mentality.” Iowa was back in a bowl
O’Brien known for work with QBs
HOUSTON (AP) — Bill O’Brien worked closely with Tom Brady when he was a Patriots assistant. He’s now set to return to the NFL to coach Houston, and he’s a long way from Brady. The Texans have the No. 1 draft pick, and O’Brien might well find himself having to groom a rookie quarterback. Two people familiar with the negotiations, speaking to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement hadn’t been made, said Tuesday night that O’Brien reached an agreement to coach the Texans. He is expected to be introduced Thursday. He inherits a team filled with talent, but whose biggest problem is at quarterback. Veteran Matt Schaub, Houston’s starter since 2007, was benched after six games. Case Keenum took over after that, but his lack of success showed he wasn’t the answer either, and the team finished on a 14-game skid. A number of talented quarterbacks could be available in May’s draft. Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, and Fresno State’s Derek Carr, younger brother of Houston’s first-ever draft pick, David Carr, are among the top-rated quarterbacks expected to be in the draft. O’Brien spent 2007-12 as offensive assistant under Bill Belichick at New England. O’Brien was the team’s quarterbacks coach from 2009-11, and Brady threw for 5,235 yards and 39 touchdowns in the 2011 regular season, when the Patriots went to the Super Bowl. But his success with quarterbacks didn’t begin or end with Brady. In 2001 he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Georgia Tech and worked with George Godsey. Godsey broke school records for yards passing (3,085) and completions (249) and led the ACC with 257.1 yards passing a game. His success in grooming quarterbacks continued at Penn State in 2012. Under O’Brien’s tutelage, senior Matt McGloin made
Thursday, January 2, 2014
remarkable improvement. He led the Big 10 in yards passing (3,271), completions (270) and touchdown passes (24). McGloin increased his completion percentage from 54.1 to 60.5 percent from 2011 to 2012. McGloin won the Burlsworth Trophy as the nation’s best player who began his career as a walk-on, and signed the Oakland Raiders, for whom he started six games in 2013. He talked to CBS Sports Radio earlier this year about what O’Brien meant to his development. “I have no problem saying it,” McGloin said “If it wasn’t for coach O’Brien I wouldn’t be in the NFL today. I wouldn’t have got a look.” In 2013, O’Brien began his work with freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg. He won Big 10 freshman of the year honors after throwing for 2,955 yards, which was second most in the league and third in Penn State history. He had 20 touchdown passes with 10 interceptions and ran for four more scores in leading the Nittany Lions to a 7-5 record. O’Brien will become the third coach in Texans history, following Dom Capers, who led the team from its expansion season in 2002, and Gary Kubiak. Kubiak took over after Capers was fired following Houston’s 2-14 season in 2005. Kubiak went 61-64 and led Houston to its first two playoff appearances and two AFC South titles before being fired in early December. The Texans were expected to contend for the Super Bowl this season, but instead lost nine games by a touchdown or less to end the season with the NFL’s worst record at 214. Despite Houston’s issues at the position, the Texans’ new quarterback will be surrounded by plenty of playmakers. Houston has receiver Andre Johnson, who had 1,407 yards receiving this season; last year’s firstround pick receiver DeAndre Hopkins; and should get star running back Arian Foster back next year. Foster missed the last eight games of the season after back surgery.
olina coach Steve Spurrier said. Clowney had four tackles in the first half, including one for a loss. But he was mostly a non-factor early as the Badgers alternated White and Gordon in the backfield. Wisconsin rushed for 293 yards in the game, but had no rushing touchdowns. The badgers hadn’t lost by double digits since October 2010 (also 34-24 to Michigan State). Since then, they’d lost 13 times, all by seven points or less. Gamecocks’ defensive end Victor Hampton, whose hit knocked
after staying at home with a 4-8 record in 2012. The Hawkeyes’ four regular season losses came to nationally ranked Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, teams that took a combined record of 45-6 into the Rose, Orange, Capital One and Poinsettia bowls. LSU’s first trip to Tampa since 1989, when the Outback was known as the Hall of Fame Bowl, capped another successful season under Les Miles, but one that fell short of expectations for a program accustomed to contending for national titles. Besides a three-touchdown loss to Alabama, the Tigers dropped three-point decisions to SEC rivals Georgia and Mississippi, while also displaying their potential by being the only team to defeat No. 2 Auburn during the regular
season. Jennings came off the bench in the closing minutes to finish a comeback victory over Arkansas in the regular-season finale, leading a 99-yard gamewinning drive that he finished with a 49-yard TD pass. Miles expected Jennings to play well, citing poise as one of the 19-year -old’s strongest assets. Iowa did not have much film to study of the young quarterback, but Hawkeyes coach Kirk Ferentz said any newcomer who entered a program such as LSU’s and rose to No. 2 on the depth chart as a true freshman figured to have the makings of a star. And with a talented supporting cast around him, Jennings didn’t have to carry the T igers on his back Wednesday. Hill and receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis

Stave out of the game, confirmed afterward that he would skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. He said he thought South Carolina’s defense displayed its true personality when it had to. “That was a knock-down, drag out fight,” Hampton said. “Everybody was saying we couldn’t stop the run, but we showed them different. They got some yards on us in the first half and (Melvin Gordon) was really impressive, but in the second half, it was all over. We shut them down.”
wins. Michigan State’s defense capped its dominant season with one more oldschool, smash-mouth performance during the centennial celebration of the Granddaddy of Them All. “It’s a special time for all Spartans, and we came here in force,” coach Mark Dantonio said. “I’m very happy for our football team, the resilience we showed all season long.” The nation’s best defense ended it by stopping the Pac-12 champion Cardinal (11-3) on fourth-and-1 with 1:46 to play, utterly stuffing a run play up the middle. Kyler Elsworth, who started in place of suspended senior leader Max Bullough, hurdled the pile to deliver an electrifying, head-on hit to fullback Ryan Hewitt. “When I saw their offensive linemen’s stance, I knew the way to make a play was to go over the top,” said Elsworth, selected the game’s defensive MVP. Tyler Gaffney ran for 91 yards and an early TD for Stanford, and linebacker Kevin Anderson returned an interception 40 yards for a score late in the first half. But the Cardinal couldn’t follow up last season’s victory in Pasadena with back-to-back Rose Bowl wins, managing just three points from their offense after the first quarter. The Spartans have long labored in the shadow of Michigan and Ohio State, but coach Dantonio’s seven-year rebuilding project in East Lansing has put them on top of the Midwest this season with an unbeaten run through conference play. After knocking off the unbeaten Buckeyes in the league title game, Michigan State earned only the Big Ten’s second Rose Bowl win since 2000, even rallying from its first double-digit deficit of the entire season to do it. Cook led the way in his own inim-
Landry combined with Mettenberger this season to make LSU the first team in SEC history to feature a 3,000-yard passer, two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000-yard rusher in the same year. And the Tigers didn’t stray from the formula that made them one of the league’s top offenses. Hill broke a 42-yard run on his first carry, setting the tone against an Iowa defense that entered yielding just under 121 yards per game rushing and a little more than 303 overall, third in the Big Ten and seventh nationally. Seven plays later, Jennings finished a 77-yard drive with his 2-yard TD run. “It was a gutsy performance by Iowa,” Miles said. “We had a great amount of respect for them coming in and they showed that respect was well earned.”
itable fashion, making incredible plays and huge mistakes along the way. Along with his costly interception to Anderson, he also threw two passes that went through the hands of Cardinal defenders, and an interception in the third quarter was wiped out by a defensive holding call. But when the Spartans needed big plays in the second half, Cook repeatedly delivered, finishing 22 for 36. Kevin Hogan beat Wisconsin in last year’s Rose Bowl, but he couldn’t match Cook, going 10 for 18 for 143 yards and a key interception for Stanford. A mere 112 years after the game considered the first Rose Bowl was played in a park elsewhere in Pasadena, Stanford and Michigan State engaged in an old-fashioned slugfest in the venerable stadium that will host the BCS title game Monday night. Michigan State fans dominated the Rose Bowl grounds and stands, with about 70 percent wearing green in the crowd of 95,173 — the game’s largest turnout since 1998. After Tournament of Roses Parade grand marshal Vin Scully flipped the coin, Stanford started with a 77-yard drive culminating in Gaffney’s 16-yard TD run. Michigan State had never trailed by double digits all season long until Jordan Williamson’s field goal put Stanford up 10-0 late in the first quarter, but the Spartans finally connected with a 13play, 75-yard drive culminating in Langford’s bounce outside for a 2-yard TD. The Spartans dominated the second quarter, but Cook handed seven points to the Cardinal shortly before halftime. With Usua Amanam bearing down on him unblocked, Cook inexplicably threw a soft looping pass directly to Anderson, who returned his first career interception untouched for a score — the first defensive touchdown allowed by Michigan State all season.

N.Texas tops UNLV 36-14 in Heart of Dallas
DALLAS (AP) — Derek Thompson and Brelan Chancellor were among the seniors who wanted North Texas’ first bowl game in nine years to be close to family and friends. They made a lot of green-clad fans very happy. Thompson threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, Chancellor scored twice and the Mean Green dominated the second half of a 36-14 victory over UNLV in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on Wednesday. North Texas (9-4) pulled away from a 7-7 halftime tie for its first bowl win since New Orleans in 2002. The school’s third postseason victory came in front of a strong turnout of 38,380 on a sunny day at the Cotton Bowl, just 45 miles from the Denton campus. “It was so exciting running on the field and seeing a sea of green,” said Thompson, who was 21 of 30 without an interception and voted the game’s MVP. “We love our fans.” UNLV (7-6) drove 95 yards for a touchdown on its opening possession but didn’t score again until the Mean Green were up 28-7 in the fourth quarter. The Rebels lost in the postseason for the first time in the school’s fourth bowl game and first since 2000 after coach Bobby Hauck won two games in each of his first three seasons. “I told them I was proud of them and in particular our seniors for having turned the ship around,” Hauck said. “We were not good when we all came

together a few years ago.” Both of Chancellor’s touchdown runs came in the fourth quarter. He also keyed the goahead scoring drive in the third with some nifty footwork on a first-down catch. Chancellor had 121 yards combined — 74 receiving and 47 rushing, including the scoring runs of 3 and 15 yards — as the Mean Green finished with more wins in 2013 than the five years combined before coach Dan McCarney arrived last season.
“We sent a message that this is a program on the rise,” said McCar ney, a 36-year veteran coaching in the historic Fair Park venue for the first time. “I think we’re a good example for other football teams that if you do things the right way, it can pay off.” Thompson threw a tiebreaking 7-yard touchdown pass to Drew Miller in the third quarter and put the Mean Green up 28-7 with a 34-yard scoring toss to Darnell Smith.
Chancellor kept the go-ahead drive alive by slipping past UNLV’s Peni Vea along the sideline and staying inbounds for a 17-yard catch on third-and-16. The first of four third-down conversions on the drive came one play after North Texas was backed up by a late-hit penalty on guard Mason Y’Barbo. “We’re a second-half football team,” Thompson said. “We’ve been that all year. We knew if we picked up the tempo that we could do some things and move
the football.” T im Cornett, UNLV’s career rushing leader, was held to 33 yards — 71 below his average and the same total as quarterback Caleb Herring, who threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns. “Our yards per carry just weren’t good enough and defensively, we weren’t good enough on third down,” Hauck said. “We got into some third-down situations where we had the upper hand and they converted.” Herring’s second scoring toss was a 13-yarder to Jerry Rice Jr., the first career touchdown for the son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice in his final college game. UNT came in with one of the nation’s top scoring defenses and forced seven straight scoreless UNLV possessions. The Rebels punted the first three times they had the ball after halftime, and the Mean Green scored after each one. The Mean Green, playing in their first bowl game since a 2004 New Orleans Bowl loss to Souther n Miss, sacked Herring five times. UNLV jumped in front in the first quarter on Marcus Sullivan’s 9-yard TD reception. Devante Davis set up the score with a 29yard grab, and finished with 10 catches for 96 yards. The Rebels then had a chance to grab control, but Keith Whitely muffed a punt and Zed Evans recovered for North Texas at the UNLV 42. Antoinne Jimmerson had the tying score on a run from inside the 1.
Nebraska beats No. 23 Georgia 24-19 in Gator Bowl
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Facing third-and-14 at the 1, Nebraska had a choice: Sneak the ball in hopes of getting a little extra room to punt or take a shot deep. The Cornhuskers chose to throw — and boy did they wing it. Tommy Armstrong Jr. connected with Quincy Enunwa for a 99-yard touchdown strike— the longest play in school history — and Nebraska held on to beat No. 23 Georgia 24-19 in the rain-soaked Gator Bowl on Wednesday. “I know one thing: There will never be a longer play in the history of college football than that one,” Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini said. “That was a big play for us.” Equally big were Georgia’s failures down the stretch. The Bulldogs (8-5) dropped two fourth-down passes in the closing minutes, helping Nebraska (94) close out its first bowl victory since 2009. Nebraska, playing in its 50th bowl, also ended a four-game losing streak against teams from the Southeastern Conference. The streak included a 4531 loss to Georgia in the Capital One Bowl last season. The rematch was much different. Nebraska did a solid job against running back Todd Gurley, who ran for 125 yards and a touchdown last year. Gurley finished with 86 yards on the
ground. Gurley was more effective in the passing game, catching seven passes for 97 yards. His 25-yard scoring reception to open the fourth quarter cut Nebraska’s lead to 24-19. The Bulldogs had two really good chances to take the lead, but Rantavious Wooten and Arthur Lynch dropped fourth-down passes in the red zone. “I think I turned my head at the last second and was thinking end zone,” Lynch said. “It’s one of those situations. It’s not so much I dropped the pass. It’s that I let my team down. At the end of the day, it’s one of those things that you can never forget, brush off your shoulders. “It’s a win or a loss, and we lost. But I will never able to forget this one. If I run that play 49 more times, I make the catch.” The drops capped Georgia’s woes. The Bulldogs moved inside the 21 seven times, but settled for four field goals. The final two were costly. Wooten dropped a fourth-and-2 pass around the 10 with 4:42 remaining. Georgia got the ball back with 3:18 to play and marched toward the end zone. But L ynch couldn’t haul in a fourth-and-3 pass that would have moved the chains with about 25 seconds remaining.
“That (stinks),” Gurley said. “To go all the way down there like that and on fourth down you just give it to them, that’s a bad feeling right there.” Nebraska ran out the clock from there and then celebrated wildly all over the field. Enunwa was named the game’s Most Valuable Player — and for good reason. He recorded the longest play in Nebraska and Gator Bowl history. After a timeout to discuss options on third and long, Armstrong dropped back and heaved the ball as far as he could to Enunwa, who was streaking wide open down the left sideline. Georgia cornerback Shaq Wiggins let Enunwa go, but got no safety help. Quincy Mauger had a chance to tackle Enunwa, but bounced off him just past midfield. Enunwa coasted the rest of the way. “It was kind of just one of those calls where you don’t have too many options out there, stuck on your own 1-yard line,” Enunwa said. “Luckily our coaches trust in us as playmakers.” Enunwa finished with four receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a 5-yard TD reception in the second quarter. The second was his 12th scoring catch of the season, breaking the school record of 11 set by Johnny Rodgers in 1971.

49ers’ Bowman having career season Rodgers’ and Cobb’s return
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — In recent weeks, NaVorro Bowman has received a pair of high compliments from two important men in his life. Close friend and fellow linebacker Patrick Willis told Bowman, the teammate he considers a brother, that he is having a tremendous season — a year Willis himself would love to have. In addition, 49ers boss Jed York approached Bowman to say he noticed how the star defender avoided overly celebrating an 89-yard touchdown return that sealed a Dec. 23 win against Atlanta in Candlestick Park’s finale. Rather, he cherished making up for an earlier miscue on an onside kick that could have cost his team the game. Bowman appreciates all the good will and thoughtfulness. There has been plenty this year as he leads the defense for San Francisco (12-4), which opens the playoffs with an NFC wild-card matchup at Green Bay on Sunday. Most notably, Bowman is thrilled to be in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year, which is announced Super Bowl week. “It means a lot. When I came into this league, I was drafted in the third round. When you’re drafted in the third round, people don’t expect much out of you,” Bowman said. “It took a part out of me and put a chip on my shoulder and had me wanting to prove myself. That’s what I’ve been doing. I learned a lot from Pat, but I don’t want to stay in anyone’s shadow. All of those things played a part. It just shows I’m getting better every single year, I’m not staying the same. A Defensive Player of the Year has to be consistent.” With all due respect to Willis, Bowman wants nothing more than to establish himself separately from his four-year teammate. Bowman has emerged as the 49ers’ most dominant linebacker. “I told him the other day, coming back after
the Arizona game, I said: ‘Man, you’re having the kind of year that linebackers want to have. I know you’re most certainly having the kind of year that I would love to have,”’ Willis said Wednesday. “But he’s my brother. I’m always going to be his biggest fan. He’s my teammate. I’m just glad to see him do well. When one of us does well, we all do well. That’s how we think as a team.” What Bowman accomplished in December alone went unmatched by any player all season: three sacks, two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. “The way the league’s set up, the month of December separates the good teams, separates the good players from the great players,” Bowman said. “If that’s the way my body works, if I get stronger as the season gets on, I’ll take it. It’s just the preparation every single week, staying in the weight room and not saying, ‘It’s the middle of the season, I’m not going to lift as hard.”’ The 25-year-old Bowman, drafted out of Penn State in 2010, had 149 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble last season. He has built on that this year, earning a Pro Bowl selection. He has 145 tackles, five sacks, two interceptions and four forced fumbles. The play everyone will remember most leaves its mark among the great moments in more than four decades of them at Candlestick — that 89-yard interception return with Matt Ryan driving the Falcons. “It’s the biggest highlight. Just hearing linemen, even DBs, they dream of having a play and picking the ball off and having all green grass in front of them,” said Bowman, signed to a five-year contract extension worth $45.25 million in November 2012. “I can only imagine what they were feeling and how exciting it was.”
poses problems for Pack foes GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The gang’s back together, mostly, for the Packers in the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb pulled off a fourth-down stunner last week against the Chicago Bears in each player’s first game back from injury. Now imagine what Green Bay can do with the franchise quarterback and speedy receiver practicing without limitations for a full week, joining Jordy Nelson, James Jones and Eddie Lacy on the list of playmakers. Just in time for Sunday’s matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC wild-card game. “It’s going to be tough for defenses to play us, the way they’re going to approach the game as far as are they going to try to take the pass away, or are they going to try to take the run away,” Cobb said Wednesday. “So, we (pose) a pretty obvious threat, I think.” No need to think about it. After a roller-coaster
season, the Packers (8-71) are brimming with confidence. They took the NFC North title by winning three of their last four games, and getting help from collapses by the Lions and Bears. Rodgers and Cobb helped seal a third straight division crown by connecting on an unlikely 48-yard touchdown pass on fourth-and-8 with 38 seconds left. With Rodgers back, anything is possible. “He runs our offense at a very, very high level,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “When he’s on the field we’re different.” That left collarbone injury that kept him out for seven games is fine, so much so that McCarthy has no worries about him for practice this week. McCarthy isn’t worried about the leg injury that kept Cobb out, either. In fact, Rodgers was bothered more by cramping in his calves. He was facing his first game action in nearly two
months. But Rodgers said his legs are fine, too. “Well, myself and Randall are back, that helps. We had a couple good connections on Sunday. It’s doing the stuff we want to do,” Rodgers said. “We want to be an up-tempo team, we want to get a lot of plays run, we want to try to wear the defense down a little bit.” Rodgers’ impact on the offense is a no-brainer. The 2011 NFL MVP excels as a decision maker and can make pinpoint throws for big plays. But Cobb’s recovery from his October injury got lost in the soap opera surrounding when Rodgers might come back. Cobb may not be at full speed, but just his mere presence and versatility might cause defenders to think twice about what might be coming. Against the Bears, he maneuvered his way open for two touchdown catches.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: My sister “Nicole” faked several pregnancies to keep her boyfriends around until they wised up. She is now really pregnant by a married man. Nicole has a long criminal history and has been in and out of jail for various offenses. She’s now facing drug charges that could land her in jail for the next 10 or 15 years. If she’s found guilty, my mother will get custody of the baby so it won’t have to stay in foster care. My parents are in their late 50s and financially capable, but they’re not in the best of health. Mom
plans to raise the child until Nicole gets out of prison because my sister “always wanted to be a mom.” My husband and I have been discussing adopting a child and would love to adopt Nicole’s baby. If we did, we’d get a child and could provide the love, safety and security my sister cannot. And the child would get a stable home. Mom feels Nicole “deserves” to be a mom, despite the fact that she’s going to jail and flits from man to man searching for someone to love her. How can I get my mother to see that the needs of this baby HAVE to come first? She should be more concerned with this innocent baby than her drugged-out daughter. Am I wrong to feel hurt and think my mother is choosing her over me? HEARTBROKEN IN ALABAMA
DEAR HEARTBROKEN: Stop personalizing this as a choice your mother is making between you and your sister. Try instead to make her understand how traumatic it will be to a child who could be as old as 10 or 15 to be handed over to a virtual stranger who has no job, no money and a
long uphill climb to try and build a future. Your sister may have always dreamed of motherhood, but the most important part of being a parent — aside from loving a child — is being PRESENT. If your sister is found guilty, she will be absent long after her child’s primary attachments will have formed. If this doesn’t convince your mother to change her mind, you will have no choice but to accept her decision and consider adopting another child. P.S. Perhaps your father will understand that what you’re proposing makes sense and will speak on your behalf. #####
DEAR ABBY: I’m in my late 20s, single and have no children. I have lived on my own since I was 18. I own my home, my car and have no credit card debt, but my mother refuses to acknowledge me as an adult. When I do simple chores or cook meals, she acts surprised. She constantly pleads with me to move
back home because she insists I can’t take care of myself and refuses to discuss it any further than belittling me. My friends say what she’s doing constitutes abuse. I’m not sure I agree, but I do think it is rude and manipulative. How can I deal with her condescending attitude when I’m with her? AT MY WIT’S END
DEAR WIT’S END: Most parents strive to make their children independent. Your mother may want you home not because you can’t take care of yourself but because she doesn’t want to live alone. I wouldn’t call that abuse but I do consider it to be selfish and self-serving. You should not sacrifice your lifestyle to live with someone as manipulative as your mother. When she attacks, laugh and deflect her with humor. Assure her that as incompetent as she thinks you are, you’re “muddling through.” And if she persists, point out that if she doesn’t ease up, she’ll be seeing less of you.

‘Duck’ son Robertson makes nice in Fox interview
NEW YORK (AP) — “Duck Dynasty” star Willie Robertson chose not to quack back. In one of his first chances to comment on the dust-up surrounding his outspoken father and co-star Phil Robertson, the younger Robertson had only kind words for the A&E network and New Year’s wishes for the nation in an appearance Tuesday night
on Fox News’s “All-American New Year” special. “We’re just glad to be back to work, and A&E and us are fine,” Willie Robertson said in a live appearance with wife Korie from Steamboat Springs, Colo. Fox hosts Bill Hemmer and Elizabeth Hasselbeck gave him several chances to address the firestorm surrounding the suspension of his
father over anti-gay comments, but without quite ducking the question, Willie Robertson chose not to take the bait either. “We’re looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows. It’s a New Year so we’re ready to break in a New Year and start it all over again,” Robertson said. “We’re ready to move on, you know. I think we all learned a lot

and we’re just ready to move on, and the family’s happy, and we’re ready to go. I’ve got to make sure my guys are back there building duck calls.” Asked her thoughts on the suspension by Hasselbeck, Korie Robertson took the same conciliatory tone. “Hey, I’m just glad the family’s all together, the best thing about
the show is we get to do it as a family,” she said. “We’re all happy, happy, happy.” The cable channel reinstated Phil Robertson on Friday, nine days after suspending him over the anti-gay comments made to GQ magazine. The suspension sparked brought out legions of defenders who felt he was being censored by the network.

Taylor and other models — earrings, a flowing hem, a jacket’s trim or a specific shade of eye shadow — show the creativity of a young designer making his mark. “He finished off the fit,” Baca said. The sketches more than illustrate a designer’s vision for an outfit. They’r e r eally blue-

prints used to communicate specific information to the team that produces each outfit — from the designer to the patternmaker, fabric buyers, salespeople and other staff. The Tiziani archive, which includes more than 300 drawings, highlights the shift in fashion from haute couture worn only by wealthy women to r eady-to-wear designs that could be produced in large quantities at lower prices. Tiziani’s founder, Evan Richards, kept Lagerfeld’s designs and sketchbooks together with other work produced for the fashion house in the 1960s, and the ar chive was maintained by subsequent owners. The sketches might not have survived if they were left in Lagerfeld’s hands. In 2007, as a nearby wastebasket filled with discar ded sketches, Lager feld told The New Yorker, “I throw everything away!” He added, “The most important piece of furnitur e in a house is the garbage can! I keep no archives of my own, no sketches, no photos, no clothes — nothing! I am supposed to do, I’m not supposed to remember!”

Along with memorabilia between Richar ds and Taylor, Lagerfeld’s work is the highlight of the auction. “These are more works of art. I don’t think people put that much effort into the sketches of today,” said Bill Hamilton, who designed for Carolina Herrera for 17 years and now designs for private clients. Much in the way Lagerfeld has kept Chanel current by updating recognizable elements of the historic French label — patent leather, quilting, its signature chain — he put his own twist on the over -the-top looks favored at Tiziani, Hamilton said. “His sketches are much younger -looking than whoever else was sketching at the time, much freer,” said Hamilton, who has reviewed the Tiziani archive. Baca said he couldn’t estimate the value of the unique ar chive as a whole, but bidding on the sketches likely will start at $500 each. “It was not meant to be art, but as 50 years have gone by, it has become art because it was done by Lagerfeld,” Baca said.
