Last day: 23 Iowa campaign stops combined
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The White House their goal, Republican presidential hopefuls raced across Iowa on Monday in a final, full day of frenzied appeals for support in precinct caucuses that open the 2012 campaign. “It is the race you make it,” an upsetminded Rick Santorum told voters soon to pick a winner. In the race’s final hours, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney predicted vic-

tory and for mer House Speaker Newt Gingrich all but forecast his own defeat. From Sioux City in the western part of the state to Davenport in the east, the six presidential hopefuls hustled through 23 fastpaced campaign events combined. That and the $13 million or more already spent on television commercials was evidence enough of the outsized importance Iowa holds in the race to pick a Republi-
can opponent for President Barack Obama next fall. Romney had one eye on his GOP rivals and another on Obama as he argued he is in the best position of all to capture the White House. The president has been “a great divider, the great complainer, the great excuse giver, the great blamer,” said the former Massachusetts governor, who is making his second try for the nomination and has been at or near the top
of the Iowa polls since the campaign began. Later, before a noisy crowd in Marion, he predicted his own victory in a state that humbled him four years ago. “We’re going to win this thing with all of our passion and strength,” he said. Texas Rep. Ron Paul flew into the state accompanied by his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, and urged supporters to “send a message tomorrow night that echoes
not just around Iowa but ... around the world.” Many in the audience of about 300 chanted “end the Fed,” a reference to the Texan’s pledge to abolish the nation’s central bank as a first step toward repairing the economy. Most polls in recent days have put Romney and Paul atop the field in Iowa, with Santorum in third and See CAMPAIGN, Page A6

Public employee retirement spikes SANTA FE, (AP) — The number of retiring New Mexico public-sector employees has spiked in the past two years but officials can’t pinpoint a reason for the increased. State officials and union leaders say an aging workforce and budget cuts that have caused workers’ takehome pay to be trimmed, as well as more stringent return-to-work laws could be among the factors at work, the Albuquerque Jour nal reported (http://bit.ly/v1Gjmv ). According to the state’s two public retirement systems, a total of 4,145 public-sector employees had retired across New Mexico in 2011 as of December. In 2002, a total of 2,625 employees filed for retirement. Jan Goodwin, executive director for the Educational Retirement Board, said officials have been expecting a jump in retirements due to the large number of employees from the baby boomer generation who
recently became eligible to receive full retirement benefits. “People retire at different times for different reasons,” said Goodwin. “I think there are a number of dynamics at play, but I’d be hard-pressed to explain it.” Others suggest that budget cuts, high government vacancy rates and stagnant salaries - rankand-file New Mexico state employees haven’t received a salary hike in three years - are likely prompting some employees to retire rather than continue working. Carter Bundy, political director for the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union in New Mexico, said many union workers have complained about understaffing in state government agencies. “I think the fair thing you can say is, when you cut people’s pay, make them do the job of two or three people, and threaten to cut

Drought-tolerant alfalfa developed ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — With much of the Southwest struggling with drought, many ranchers and dairy far mers are having difficulty finding enough hay for their livestock and making tough choices: pay up to twice as much as last year and ship it in from hundreds of miles away or do without and sell off some of their herd. Farmers, ranchers and scientists say a perfect stor m has tur ned hay into gold this year. The drought reduced forage on the range and led to an increase in demand for hay, including alfalfa and other grass mixes. At the same time, the drought and lower water allotments for agriculture reduced the supply and prices skyrocketed. Farmers as far as North Dakota and Minnesota have been feeling the effects. Scientists at New Mexico State University are trying to help by using genetic analysis and traditional plant breeding practices to come up with more drought-tolerant

varieties of alfalfa. The research is important because two-thirds of hay produced in the U.S. is grown in drought-prone areas of the Great Plains or the western U.S., said Ian Ray, the professor who runs NMSU’s alfalfa breeding and genetics program.
Hay is the fourth most valuable crop grown in the United States with sales generating more than $7.5 billion. It’s essential to everything
from the billion-dollar dairy and beef industries to the wool market and even horse racing.
NMSU has been working on developing tougher alfalfa plants for more than three decades. Ray and his team, with help from the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation in Oklahoma, have identified a series of DNA markers on alfalfa chromosomes that they believe play a

MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK, Wash. (AP) — An armed Iraq War veteran suspected of killing a Mount Rainier National Park ranger managed to evade snowshoe-wearing SWAT teams and dogs on his trail for nearly a day. He couldn’t, however, escape the cold. A plane searching the remote wilderness for Benjamin Colton Barnes, 24, on Monday discovered his body lying partially submerged in an icy, snowy mountain creek with snow banks standing several feet high on either side. “He was wearing T-shirt, a pair of jeans and one tennis shoe. That was it,” Pierce County Sherif f’s

Deming museum offers fascinating variety for all visitors
DEMING (AP) — You wouldn’t know it from its austere exterior, a former Armory built in 1918, but inside, the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum is as warm and inclusive as a bulging family photo album. If the brick facade seems to say “you cannot pass,” the museum staff says “all are welcome.” Inside, visitors encounter a dizzying variety of items, sometimes perplexing, always fascinating, in the halls of the 30,000-squarefoot museum: from hundreds of dolls dating from the 19th century through the 1970s, fine examples of Mimbres pottery, war memorabilia and a room crammed with whiskey bottles in every conceivable shape, from the pope to leprechauns to Spock from “Star Trek.” Museum administrator Virginia Pool says the institution’s roughly 13,000 annual visitors, the bulk of whom arrive during winter with the snowbird invasion, are charmed by the diversity. “We get comments all the time, they call it ‘the little Smithsonian,’” said Pool. “When you look around, we’ve got something for everybody. Whatever a person’s interests are, we’ve got something for them. That’s what I love about it.” Dr. Jerry Brody, retired professor of anthropology at the University of New Mexico and former director
of the Maxwell Museum, said that for communitybased museums that rely on donations from local residents, having a wideranging collection “comes with the territory.” But, Brody said, that’s not a bad thing. Brody said that Deming’s museum, run and managed by a staff that is all volunteer with the exception of a custodian, is one of his favorites. In the Albuquerque Archaeological Society Newsletter some years back, Brody wrote that the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum “is the only volunteer-begun, volunteer -run, low-budget museum that I know of to not only survive for a full human generation, but also to flourish.” Las Cruces resident John Porter Bloom, a former historian with the National Park Service and an atlarge board member of the Historical Society of New Mexico, called the museum “terrific.” “It’s head and shoulders above anything in any town of its size anywhere in the United States,” Bloom said. “I’d bet you $10 to a doughnut on that.” Fittingly enough, the museum made its way to the landmark Ar mory building in 1977 in order to display the town’s first powered washing machine. The washing machine was once owned by the mother of a local businessman, Hubert Ruebush.
When it was purchased in 1921, curious residents came from all over the town to see it work, according to a booklet written by former museum director Ruth Brown. Ruebush wanted to give the washer to the Luna County Historical Society, but the organization, then renting a four-room house on Nickel Street for a museum, had little display space, so Ruebush suggested buying the National Guard Ar mory then for sale. Ruebush put up half the money for the purchase, and local residents raised the rest, Brown said. Funded largely by a state appropriation combined with help from Deming and Luna County, the museum completed a $1.1 million renovation project in 2007 to install new flooring, an elevator, restrooms and a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. From its opening in the Armory, the museum displayed items of local historical interest, such as an upright Steinway grand piano and late 19th century dresses worn around the time of the town’s founding in 1881 when the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railroads completed the nation’s second transcontinental railroad. Soon after the new museum’s first open house, the wife of a Michigan transplant, who became the
museum’s director, donated her collection of dolls, including many China dolls, some dating to the early 19th century. That gift, it turned out, was the first of many from local residents that would reflect individuals’ passions or hold some strong personal value. So, the doll collection, housed in a former small ar ms firing range, has grown with other gifts. It now includes kitsch (a 1963 Bam Bam doll from the “Flintstones” cartoon series and a 1977 replica of actress Kristy McNichol) along with an eerie Japanese doll, undamaged, that an American sailor from Wisconsin plucked from the rubble of the atomic blast in Hiroshima in 1945. The Japanese doll, acknowledged assistant director Katy Hofacket, has no real connection to Deming. But the veteran, after visiting the museum, “just thought it should have a good home,” and the museum accepted, she said. Other rooms in the museum are dedicated to an impressive collection of Mimbres pottery and other artifacts donated by two local ranchers in the mid’90s; thousands of fossils, geodes and thunder eggs donated by world-renowned collector Robert Colburn; military relics, some dating back to an 1860s fort, up to more modern conflicts.

State rep wants criminal statute reform
SANTA FE (AP) — A New Mexico lawmaker wants to eliminate the state’s statute of limitations for seconddegree murder and extend time limits for prosecuting other felonies. The Las Cruces SunNews reports that State Rep. William “Bill” Rehm says he will introduce legislation that would scrap the six years statute of limitations for second-degree murder. The Albuquerque Republican’s bill also would lengthen the time in which underlying charges of conspiracy and tampering with evidence could be prosecuted. Rehm said he is motivated to file the bill after an Albuquerque woman, Ellen Snyder, shot and killed her husband in 2002 but prosecutors couldn’t file second-degree murder charges against her because of the statute of limitations. Snyder pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and received 11 years in

Governor pushes third-grader retention law
SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez is pushing state lawmakers to pass legislation to keep thirdgraders back if they fail to read proficiently. The governor wants to change the law so that schools could hold back third-graders based on their lack of reading skills. Not everyone agrees including Sen. Howie Morales. He says holding back kids to improve student achievement is not so simple or as clear -cut as the governor makes it out to be. Morales says he recently surveyed 112 elementary school teachers from across the state. He tells the Alamogordo Daily News the vast majority did not want to hold back thirdgraders based on standardized reading tests. Martinez says urgency is needed because 80 percent of the state’s third-graders or approximately 12,000 students are not proficient in reading.

Iran’s navy tests cruise missile as part of drill Roswell Daily Record
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran test-fired a surface-tosurface cruise missile Monday in a drill its navy chief said proved Tehran was in complete control of the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the passageway for onesixth of the world’s oil supply. The 10-day naval maneuvers, which are scheduled to end Tuesday, were Iran’s latest show of strength in the face of mounting international criticism over its nuclear program. Tehran has threatened to close the strait as possible retaliation to new U.S. economic sanctions. The missile, called “Ghader,” or “Capable” in Farsi, was described as an upgraded version of one that has been in service before. The official IRNA news agency said the missile “successfully hit its intended target” during the exercise. An earlier version of the same cruise missile had a range of 124 miles (200 kilometers) and could travel at low altitudes. There were suggestions it could counter the U.S. naval presence in the Persian Gulf. French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said at a regular online briefing Monday that France “regrets the very bad signal to the international community sent by
the latest missile tests announced by Iran.” There have been conflicting comments from Iranian of ficials over Tehran’s intentions to close the Strait of Hormuz and U.S. warnings against such an ominous move. “The Strait of Hormuz is completely under our control,” Iran’s navy chief Adm. Habibollah Sayyari said after Monday’s test. “We do not allow any enemy to pose threats to our interests.” Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the Iranian exercise was a show of strength intended “to deter the world from continuing sanctions against it.” Barak said at a party meeting that he doubts Iran would close the strait because that would only bring harsher international sanctions. Israel considers Iran an existential threat due to its nuclear and long-range missile program. Iran is also a major backer of Hamas and Hezbollah militants who are fighting Israel. The West fears Iran’s nuclear program aims to develop weapons — a charge Tehran denies, insisting it is for peaceful purposes only. President Barack Obama has signed a bill that applies penalties against
Iran’s central bank in an effort to hamper Tehran’s ability to fund its nuclear enrichment program, although the administration is looking to soften the impact of those penalties because of concerns that they could lead to a spike in global oil prices or cause economic hardship on U.S. allies that import petroleum from Iran. The penalties do not go into effect for six months. The president can waive them for national security reasons or if the country with jurisdiction over the foreign financial institution has significantly reduced its purchases of Iranian oil. The latest version of the Ghader missile was delivered in September to the naval division of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. At the time, Tehran said it is capable of destroying warships. “In comparison with the previous version, the highly advanced Ghader missile system has been upgraded in terms of its radar, satellite communications, precision in target destruction, as well as range and radarevading mechanism,” said Rear Adm. Mahmoud Mousavi, a spokesman for the drill. State TV showed video depicting the launch of two missiles, which it said could hit targets hundreds
of kilometers (miles) away. The broadcast said two more shorter -range missiles were also tested. “We conducted the drill ... to let everybody know that Iran’s defense and deterrence powers on the open seas and the Strait of Hor muz are aimed at defending our borders, resources and our nation,” Sayyari said. On Sunday, Iran testfired an advanced surfaceto-air missile called “Mehrab,” or “Altar,” which was described as a medi-
of Judgment Day. But Cuba’s priests say that “what needs to die is not the world itself, but rather the ways in which the world has lived until now: confr ontations, wars, misery and discrimination,” said Lazar o Cuesta, one of the island’s leading Santeria priests, or babalawo. “For us, an old world must end so that a new world is bor n .... It is not a physical end.” Santeria, which mixes Catholicism with the traditional African Yoruba faith, is followed by many
people in Cuba, wher e about a third of the 11.2 million population is of African descent. The Afro-Cuban priests have a mixed track record themselves, despite keeping their pr edictions rather vague. In January 2010, they for ecast struggles for power, tr eachery and coups d’etat, and said the world would see the death of an inor dinate number of political leaders. That would have been a better description of 2011, which saw the upheavals brought on by

Iran test-fired a surface-to-surface cruise missile on Monday during a drill that the country's navy chief said proved Tehran was in complete control of the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the passageway for one-sixth of the world's oil supply.

Iran had said the sea maneuvers would cover a 1,250-mile (2,000-kilometer) stretch of water beyond the Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, as well as parts of the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden. A leading Iranian lawmaker said Sunday the maneuvers served as practice for closing the strait if the West blocks Iran’s oil sales. After top Iranian officials made the same threat a week ago, military com-
manders emphasized that Iran has no intention of blocking the waterway now. Mousavi also emphasized Sunday that Iran has no plan to choke the strait. “We won’t disrupt traffic through the Strait of Hormuz. We are not after this,” the semiofficial ISNA news agency quoted him as saying. The drill was “tactical” and meant to show Iran was capable of assuming full control over the strait if needed, he said.
Cuba Santeria priests reject doomsday prediction HAVANA (AP) — A body of top Afro-Cuban priests is pr edicting a year of change and upheaval in 2012, but the group says fears the world will end are wrong. In their annual New Year’s for ecast, the priests warned the world could see mor e earthquakes and incr eased global warming, and they cautioned that people should also be vigilant against matrimonial discord. That may not be a very cheery message, but it’s a lot better than the fire-
and-brimstone prophecies that some have attributed to the Maya, whose calendar cycle ends on Dec. 21, 2012. The priests say they see a spiritual end to old things, but not a physical end to the planet. Believers around the world have furthered the theory, which stems from a stone tablet discovered in the 1960s at the archaeological site of Tortuguer o in the Gulf of Mexico state of Tabasco that describes the return of a Mayan god on that date, similar to the story
Mexico gas station attendant dies, seen as hero
A gas station is seen on fire after a student protest turned violent in Chilpancingo, Mexico, Monday, Dec. 12, 2011. ACAPULCO, Mexico (AP) — A gas station attendant who died of burns after shutting off pumps set alight during a
violent protest was being honored Monday in the southern Mexico state of Guerrero. Officials held a ceremony to honor Gonzalo Rivas Camara in the main square of the state capital, Chilpancingo, where he worked. The Guerrero state government said he died of his injuries Sunday at a hospital near Mexico City. More attention has been focused on two protesters who were shot to death at the Dec. 12 protest after students from a rural teachers’ college blocked a highway to demand more funds for the school and battled police trying to clear the highway. Armed police were pho-
tographed at the scene pointing their guns at the protesters, and 12 policemen are under investigation in those shootings.
Station manager Alejandro Montealegre said he saw two men with T shirts bearing the name of the teachers’ college set the pumps afire with jugs of gasoline during the protest. That coincides with testimony gathered by state prosecutors.
While one or two pumps did catch fire, the flames did not spread to underground tanks or other clusters of pumps nearby, apparently because Rivas Camara closed off valves that fed the burning pumps.
the Arab Spring, as well as the death of North Korean leader Kim JungIl. The babalawo priests predicted more coups and wars in last year’s message, in addition to growing economic openness on the island. That latter prophecy was a relatively easy call as Pr esident Raul Castro had already announced plans for a major shakeup of Cuba’s command economy. This year, the priests also warned of the loss of many people to the infirmities of old age, always
a delicate message on an island run by an 80-yearold president and several octogenarian aides.
But the priests often make the same prediction, and they said their message this year was not aimed at Cuba’s leaders or for mer President Fidel Castro, who at 85 is fully retired.
The priests also declined to weigh in on major events for 2012, like the Mar. 26-28 visit of Pope Benedict XVI or elections in the United States.
Iraq official warns of abuse of security forces BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq’s parliament speaker warned Monday that human rights violations are putting the country’s fragile democracy at risk, the latest pronouncement in a rapidly developing sectarian spat that threatens to destabilize the country after U.S. troops pulled out. The televised comments by Osama al-Nujaifi, one of the country’s top Sunni officials, are yet another salvo in a growing political crisis sparked when Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government issued an arrest warrant for the country’s top Sunni politician last month. Al-Maliki, a Shiite, controls the ministries that oversee Iraq’s police and military. Some of Iraq’s minority Sunnis, who fear being marginalized, accuse the prime minister of using the security forces to try to consolidate power. “The armed forces should not be a tool to repress peo-
ple and the armed forces should not interfere in political matters,” al-Nujaifi said, citing concerns about “serious violations” including the use of excessive force, detainee abuse and faulty legal procedures. “Human rights will not become a reality in a situation where the political process is snarled. ... Losing these rights will destroy democracy,” he added. The parliament speaker, a member of the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc, al-Maliki’s main political rivals, spoke a day before parliament was scheduled to hold its first session of the new year. Iraqiya suspended its participation in parliament last month to protest al-Maliki’s control of key posts, particularly those overseeing security forces. U.S. troops completed their pullout from Iraq two weeks ago after a nine-year war.
Also Monday, a group that tracks casualties in Iraq said the number of civilians killed in the country’s violence increased slightly in 2011. In its annual report posted online, Iraq Body Count recorded 4,063 civilians killed last year, up from 4,045 in 2010. On Sunday evening, a convoy carrying Finance Minister Rafia al-Issawi was struck by a roadside bomb in Ishaki area, 70 kilometers north of Baghdad, according to Zayed Majid, an adviser to the minister. He said the minister was not hurt, but two bodyguards were wounded. Al-Issawi is a Sunni member of Iraqiya. It was not clear whether he was the intended target of the blast. The head of the provincial health directorate where the blast occurred, Dr. Raed Ibrahim, confirmed the account.

Are we looking at a Libertarian year ahead? JOHN STOSSEL CREATORS SYNDICATE
As 2011 draws to a close, I wonder: Is freedom winning? Did America become freer this year? Less free? How about the rest of the world? I’m a pessimist. I fear Thomas Jefferson was right when he said, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” That’s what’s happened. Bush and Obama doubled spending and increased regulation. Government’s intrusiveness is always more, never less. The state grows, and freedom declines. But there were bright spots. We don’t yet know what will become of what people call the Arab Spring. But this year, for the first time in my life, there was hope that masses of people in the Middle East will embrace liberalism — in the original sense of people being left alone to pursue their own lives. Another possible bright spot: President Obama declared the war
in Iraq over. I don’t believe it because 17,000 embassy personnel remain, but at least he’s saying it, and troops have left. Some will also leave Afghanistan. But I’m confused. Obama was elected partly because he promised to end the wars. But then he almost tripled the number of American soldiers in Afghanistan, from 35,000 to 100,000. I’m pessimistic about America going bankrupt, like Greece, thanks to ballooning spending on entitlements like Medicare. But terms of debate can change quickly. This spring, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan presented a timid plan that would have slowed the growth of government slightly. Even Republicans went bonkers. Newt Gingrich called it “right-wing social engineering.” But now, just seven months later, the country’s in a different place. Newt’s apologized. Speaker John Boehner and other Republicans praise R yan’s plan. The Republican Study Committee wants to go further. Now R yan
Roswell Daily Record
agrees that his plan was “mild.” Today he says he’d go farther. Maybe attitudes changed because Americans watched the video of riots in Greece and realized what can happen when the money runs out. Maybe Standard and Poor’s downgrading of the government’s credit rating mattered. Maybe attitudes changed simply because the deficit numbers are so ugly that even the establishment has to acknowledge it. But also, attitudes changed because we libertarians won the battle of ideas. Now every Republican presidential candidate — not just Ron Paul — talks about free enterprise. Alec Baldwin told Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, “You can’t not have strong capital markets in this country or the country’s going to go down the tubes.” Wow. Even left-wing celebrities defend “strong capital markets”? The world is moving toward limited government and free enterprise. We libertarians have won! What am I talking about? We
haven’t won. Even Republicans want to grow government. When the Super Committee failed to reach its super conclusion and thereby put us on automatic pilot to a trillion dollars in spending cuts, Republicans screamed about draconian damage to the military. But the automatic cuts are really just cuts in the rate of increase. Spending will still go up, just at a slightly slower rate. Why is this even controversial? I fear that much of the country is in agreement with the Wall Street protestors who love free stuff from government — free health care, free college education, free lunch. Elderly Americans want no cuts to Medicare. Even after the Solyndra scandal, 62 percent of Americans say America should continue to invest in clean-energy jobs. Don’t they think about what that money would be producing if left in the hands of free, entrepreneurial individuals? No. Lots of Americans oppose free trade and free markets. It takes some knowledge to realize that the
seeming chaos masks underlying order. The benefits of freedom are not intuitive, and when you go against people’s intuition, they get upset. The benefits of freedom are largely “unseen,” as the 19th century French liberal Frederic Bastiat put it. He meant that rising living standards and labor-saving inventions don’t appear to flow from freedom. But they do. It’s one of the ironies of life that people need not understand freedom for it to work, and because of this, there is the perennial danger that they will give it up without realizing the disastrous consequences that follow. We freedom-lovers have a lot more work to do. John Stossel is host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network.

TSA spreads wings beyond airports
Weren’t airport pat-downs enough? The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its reach of checkpoints and control far beyond protecting airports. “TSA teams are increasingly conducting searches and screenings at train stations, subways, ferry terminals and other masstransit locations around the country,” the Los Angeles Times reported. Ray Dineen, the air marshal in charge of the TSA office in Charlotte, N.C., told the paper, “We are not the Airport Security Administration. We take that transportation part seriously.” The TSA has established a new operation, with another of those unwieldy government names: Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response. These VIPR teams, according to the Times, “have run more than 9,300 unannounced checkpoints and other search operations in the past year. Department of Homeland Security officials have asked Congress for funding to add 12 more teams next year.” The DHS is the TSA’s parent department. Both were founded in the rush to “do something, anything” following 9/11, even if the result damaged sacred American liberties. In 2011, the TSA spent $110 million on the VIPR teams. Like every government agency ever heard of, it wants more taxpayer money and is seeking another $24 million for 2012. That would be a 22 percent increase — at a time of severe budget deficits. The VIPR teams in 2011 checked ferry, cruise-ship, bus and train passengers. According to News Channel 5, a Nashville, Tenn., TV station, in October, “Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state. “Agents are recruiting truck drivers ... into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something. ... It’s all meant to urge every driver to call authorities if they see something suspicious.” Nov. 4, the Sacramento Bee reported, “(TSA) agents boarded Amtrak trains in Sacramento today to conduct one of their periodic VIPR operations, officials said.” To us, this sounds like something more like the Stasi secret police in the former East Germany, in which citizens spy on one another. “Your papers, please!” should not be a command Americans hear — and fear. The TSA insists the VIPR stings are making America safer from terrorist attacks. The random nature of the checkpoints supposedly would scramble terrorists’ planning. Critics call it political theater. Fred H. Cate, a professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, said, “It’s a great way to make the public think you are doing something. It’s a little like saying, ‘If we start throwing things up in the air, will they hit terrorists?’” We also object to this on civil rights grounds. The Fourth Amendment guarantees “(t)he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.” Airport pat-downs are bad enough. But searching random bus passengers — without any prior grounds for suspicion — clearly is a step too far for the TSA. As Ben Franklin warned, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: For years I thought I was at lower risk for heart disease than men because I was a woman. Now I know better. I’d like to take steps to reduce my chances of developing it. What can I do? DEAR READER: Heart disease has carried a reputation as a “man’s disease” for years. But it is not now — nor was it ever — a disease that mainly targets men. In fact, these days more women die each year of cardiovascular disease than men.

Proving identity before voting makes sense Is there, or should there ever be, a point when a state is no longer penalized for its discriminatory past? Not according to the Department of Justice, which last Friday rejected a South Carolina law that would have required voters show a valid photo ID before casting their ballots. Justice says the law discriminates against minorities. The Obama administration said, “South Carolina’s law didn’t meet the burden under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which outlawed discriminatory practices preventing blacks

disease as a problem for women. Here’s a pop quiz: Are women more likely to die of breast cancer or heart disease? The answer: More women die of heart disease each year in the United States than from all types of cancer combined. That includes breast, ovarian and cervical cancer, plus lung, stomach and colon cancer,
plus leukemias, lymphomas and melanoma — all types of cancer. Why do I make such a point of heart disease being the No. 1 killer of women? Some disease has to be No. 1, you might say. The reason is that many deaths from heart disease in women are preventable. The American Heart Association (AHA) offers advice for women like you who want to prevent heart disease. The guidelines aren’t for women who already have heart disease or early warning signs of it. Although many of the recommendations would also apply to those women, they generally need more intense ef forts to prevent a heart

Happy 100th Birthday New Mexico! Although New Mexico has only been a state for 100 years, it is a diverse land with a rich history spanning from the prehistoric Clovis Man to the spaceport. Few places on Earth equal New Mexico’s diverse geological makeup, which ranges from low desert plains in the south to high Rocky Mountain ranges in the north, with a diverse display of terrain in between. It provides terrain that is classified into six of the seven life zones identified on Earth. With such a variation in landscapes, the animal and plant species also represent a vast range like no other on the planet. The Roswell Public Library’s Southwestern collection of books contains thousands of fiction and non-fiction books about New Mexico and the southwester n area of the U.S. Many of the nonfiction subjects relate to our history, diverse cultures, art, geology, landscapes, cities, towns, customs and traditions. In addition, the periodicals New Mexico Magazine, El Palacio Magazine: The Museum of New Mexico Magazine and the New Mexico Historical Review all feature current and historical information.
Literacy is an important factor in our lives. Proliteracy.org states “Without literacy skills — the abilities to read, to write, to do math, to solve problems, and to access and use technology — today’s adults will struggle to take part in the world around them and fail to reach their full

potential.” The library supports literacy by providing reading materials which reflect the patron’s recreational, educational and cultural needs. Nancy Schumer, Young Adult and Audio Visual librarian, asserts that one type of literacy sorely lacking these days is Biblical literacy. If becoming better acquainted with the Bible is a part of your goals or your New Year’s resolutions, the library offers Bibles, Bible study aids and other religious books and materials to aid in your commitment. More than 400 years ago, King James ordered an English translation of the Holy Bible. He decreed that it contain no language inaccessible to common people and it was to be a true and accurate text based on scholarship. To learn more about the history of this translation, Gordon Campbell’s “Bible: the Story of the King James Version 16112011” tells the complex story of how this translation came to be commissioned, who the translators were, and how the translation was accomplished; tracing the textual history from 1611 to the present time. Award-winning director Jerry Griffith provides the DVD “The Making of the King James Bible,” giving the viewer a renewed appreciation for the sacred scriptures and their place in our homes, churches and the English-speaking world.

George Washington’s army routed the British in the Battle of Princeton, N.J. In 1861, more than two weeks before Georgia seceded from the Union, the state militia seized Fort Pulaski at the order of Gov. Joseph E. Brown. The Delaware House and Senate voted to oppose secession from the Union. In 1911, the first postal savings banks were opened by the U.S. Post Office. (The banks were abolished in 1966.) In 1938, the March of Dimes campaign to fight polio was organized. In 1949, in a pair of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court said that states had the right to ban closed shops. In 1958, the first six members of the newly formed U.S. Commission on Civil Rights held their first meeting at the White House. In 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower announced the United States was formally terminating diplomatic and consular relations with Cuba. In 1967, Jack Ruby, the man who shot and killed accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, died in a Dallas hospital. In 1980, conservationist Joy Adamson, author of “Born Free,” was killed in northern Kenya by a former employee.

The library supplies many versions and translation of the Bible, such as the New American Standard, English Standard, Revised Standard, New International and New Jerusalem Bibles. In addition, there are several study versions. The American Patriot’s Bible edited by Richard G. Lee, imparts how the teachings of the Bible are woven into the history of the U.S. He includes memorable images from our nation’s history and hundreds of articles which complement the text of the New King James Version Bible. The Scofield Study Bible authorized in 1917, enlightens the KJV with a system of connected topical references printed alongside the Bible verses instead of in a separate volume. It contains annotations, revised marginal renderings, summaries, definitions, chronology, an index and explanations of seeming discrepancies. Two other study Bibles are the MacArthur Study Bible which contains Dr. MacArthur’s personal study notes and the Giant Print Reference Edition from Thru the Bible Radio Network. Reference books do not check out and are to be used in the library. These study guides feature the New Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance, the 12volume New Interpreter’s Bible,

Happy Birthday is the theme of Wednesday’s story and craft hours. The program wishes Happy Birthday, not only to New Mexico, but to everyone who has a birthday during the year. Both the 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. story times will feature books such as “Happy Birthday To You, Baby” based on Dr. Seuss, “Clifford’s Birthday Party” or “I Love Birthdays.” After the program, precut craft materials will be provided for those in attendance. These may include paper birthday cupcakes, confetti and the number 100 to use in decorating a headband hat. In addition, various paper symbols of New Mexico will be available to adorn a map of New Mexico. The stories may vary between programs and the quantities of some craft items may be limited. A Polar Adventure awaits kids during the 2 p.m. Saturday story time. The books could include “Little Polar Bear,” “The Emperor’s Egg,” “If I Were a Polar Bear” or “Hide and Seek in the Snow.” After the program, precut craft materials will be provided for those in attendance and may feature making a polar bear mask, creating a polar scene with penguins or crafting an Inuit house (igloo) with Styrofoam squares.

ry that resisted integration throughout the South, passing Jim Crow laws that frustrated blacks who wanted to vote. Those were Southern Democrats who stood in schoolhouse doors, barring blacks from entering. Today, many members of that same party refuse to allow poor minority students to leave failing government schools as part of the school voucher system because they, apparently, value political contributions from teachers unions more than they value educational achievement. The South Carolina law that offends the Justice Department anticipated objections that some poor minorities might not have driver’s licenses (and certainly not a passport) because they might not own cars. So the state will provide free voter ID cards with a picture of the voter on it. All someone has to do is prove who they claim to be. A birth certificate will do nicely. A utility bill can be used to prove residency. Not requiring a voter to prove his or her citizenship and residence is a recipe for voter fraud. Democrats like to accuse Republicans of trying to keep minorities from voting because they know most will vote for Democrats. Even if that were true (and it’s debatable) the reverse is probably truer. Some Democrats have allegedly encouraged people to vote who were not eligible, some more than once. Without a valid ID, how can we stop this?

In addition to the one in South Carolina, all require some form of photo identification. Will Justice go after all of them, as well? According to the Brennan Center, a new law in Kansas, effective Jan. 1, requires a photo ID, with certain exceptions such as a physical disability that makes it impossible for the person to travel to a government office to acquire one, though they must have “qualified for permanent advance voting status ...” A new Texas law, which took effect on Sept. 1, requires a photo ID in order to vote, or another form of personal ID card issued by the Department of Public Safety. Even historically liberal Wisconsin passed a new law last year requiring voters to prove who they are, in most cases with a photo ID. Governor Haley and South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson vow to fight the Justice Department ruling. They should. Photo IDs are required when flying on commercial aircraft or cashing a check. That discriminates against no one. Neither does requiring people to prove who they are before voting, unless, of course, there’s another agenda, like “stuffing” the ballot box.

gaining ground. More than a third of all potential caucus-goers say they could yet change their minds. “Do not settle for less than what America needs to transform this country. Moderate candidates who try to appeal to moderates end up losing,” Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, said in a slap at Romney. After absorbing a pounding in television commercials from Romney’s deeppocketed allies, Gingrich said he was looking ahead to next week’s primary in New Hampshire, and then to one in South Carolina on Jan. 21 “I don’t think I’m going to win, I think when you look at the numbers that volume of negativity has done its damage,” he said of the Iowa caucuses. Romney is viewed as the overwhelming favorite in New Hampshire, although Santorum, Paul and Gingrich have all said they intend to campaign there. South Carolina figures to be more wide-open, the first contest in the South, and in a deeply Republican state. If others were thinking about conceding Iowa, they did not show it. Texas Gov. Rick Perry took swipes at Romney, Santorum and Paul in an appearance in Sioux City. “If you have my back tomorrow at the caucuses, I’ll have your back for the next four years in Washington, D.C,” he said. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann unveiled the first television ad in months. It hailed her as Iowa-bor n and the only “consistent conservative fighter” in the race and concluded, “She’ll never back down.” The commercial was the last in a race in which the candidates’ own ads were sometimes overshadowed by the more negative ones run by super PACs, organizations established and funded by their allies. Perry and a super PAC supporting him spent the most, $5.5 million, according to one tally of the ad spending. But it was the combina-
tion of Romney ($1.3 million) and his super PAC ($2.7 million) that appeared to have the most noticeable impact on the race. That was particularly so in the final few weeks, when Gingrich surged to the front of the polls. The former speaker soon found himself under relentless attack in ads by the Romney super PAC. At the same time, the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign took the high road, airing positive ads designed to show him in a favorable light. Short on funds, Gingrich was unable to respond in kind, declaring instead he would run only a positive campaign. It wasn’t much of a contest, and before long, he faded, while Paul and then Santorum rose. In fact, Gingrich’s emergence was only one in a series of twists that seemed to produce a new frontrunner every few weeks. Bachmann earned that distinction when she won a straw poll last summer in Ames, but she was bumped of f stride when Perry entered the race. His boomlet lasted until his first few debate performances were judged lacking, and then it became Her man Cain’s turn. The former business executive suspended his campaign after being accused of personal indiscretions, and Gingrich began gaining ground, then Paul. Throughout it all, Romney remained steady, advantaged by his wellfunded campaign, the super PAC that supports him and the missteps of his rivals. Yet to the end, the polls suggested the former Massachusetts governor was having trouble persuading Iowa Republicans that he was conservative enough to warrant their support. Somehow, even an intense post-Christmas push by the candidates through Iowa’s cities, small towns and smaller towns left Iowa Republicans uncertain about which contender to back. “I’m really still undecided,” said Bill Brauer, of Polk City, as he listened to Santorum speak on the campaign’s final day. “I’m going to make up my mind tonight,” he said.
24-year-old arrested in Los Angeles arson spree LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities arrested a man Monday in connection with dozens of suspected arson attacks that destroyed parked cars, scorched buildings and rattled much of the nation’s second-largest city over the New Year’s weekend. Harry Burkhart, 24, was booked for investigation of arson of an inhabited dwelling and was being held without bail, authorities said. Burkhart was arrested earlier in the day because he resembled a “person of interest” captured on surveillance video. He was stopped by a reserve sherif f’s deputy in a van being sought by arson investigators. More than 50 blazes have flared since Friday in Hollywood, neighboring West Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley, causing about $3 million in damage. Police declined to reveal any motive for the fires. Firefighters have not responded to any other suspicious fires since Burkhart was detained, Capt. Jaime Moore said. The blazes forced many apartment dwellers from their homes. But there were no serious injuries — one firefighter was hurt in a fall from a ladder, and another person suf-
fered smoke inhalation. One of Saturday’s fires occurred at the Hollywood and Highland entertainment complex, a popular tourist destination bordered by the Walk of Fame in a neighborhood that includes Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Damaged buildings included a former home of Doors singer Jim Morrison in Laurel Canyon. Most of the fires began in cars. Authorities have not said how they were started. Investigators declined to provide any other immediate details, saying they did not want to jeopardize the case. The onslaught of intentionally set fires left residents on edge over the holiday weekend in some of the most densely populated areas of the city. Hundreds of investigators, police officers and firefighters raced to deal with the blazes. Police conducted extra patrols all weekend, and the noise of helicopters and sirens persisted virtually nonstop in Hollywood. Some other deliberately set fires were reported Thursday in Hollywood, and two people were arrested. But police said Monday that those suspects were not connected with the 53 other blazes.
Roswell Daily Record trying to develop alfalfa varieties that can withstand cold weather, saltladen irrigation water and various insects and disease. But experts say the NMSU team is at the cutting edge when it comes to research on drought tolerance. Mark McCaslin, president of Forage Genetics International in Nampa, Idaho, and a board member of the National Alfalfa and Forage Alliance, said while drought is common in alfalfa country, this year’s has been particularly devastating. “What happened this year was really a tragedy, so that puts a lot more energy behind this kind of work,” he said. Leon Porter, a rancher from central New Mexico, said he had to sell about 140 head because the tufts of grass on his ranch failed to green up this year. Even the native yucca plants wilted and
turned brown. Porter and other ranchers are paying more than $300 a ton for hay and alfalfa grass mixes to get their herds through the winter. Last year, it cost about $165 a ton. “The more producers that produce hay and the more efficiently they can produce it, the more affordable it makes it for us,” he said. Alfalfa farmers across New Mexico have been turning away customers since early fall. Arizona is about out, and a number of dairies in southeastern New Mexico have had to go to the Dakotas to get orders filled. “Basically anywhere in the western United States, there’s no hay to be found right now,” said Justin Boswell, a crop consultant and executive director of the New Mexico Hay Association. Any scientific breakthrough would be welcome, he said.
an annual total of $69,354 per employee when insurance and other benefits are factored in. The higher number of retirements will mean an increased burden on the state’s two pension funds, which provide benefits for thousands of retired New Mexicans, officials said. Both the Educational Retirement Board and the Public Employees Retirement Association are
already grappling with solvency concer ns, as their unfunded liabilities totaled more than $9 billion as of mid-2011. An unfunded liability is the difference between benefits to be paid out and assets on hand. Several proposals to address the solvency of the retirement systems are expected to be debated during the upcoming 30day legislative session, which begins Jan. 17. Sen. George Munoz, D-
Gallup, chairman of an interim legislative committee that studied the state’s public retirement systems, said he sees a sense of urgency to tackle the issue.
guardian ad litem recommended parenting and communication classes for both parents as well as a visitation schedule for Barnes until he completed evaluations for domestic violence and mental health and complied with treatment recommendations. Maj. Chris Ophardt, an Army spokesman, told The News Tribune that Barnes had been stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, and was released from the Army in November 2009 after two years and seven months on active duty after charges of driving under the influence and improperly transporting privately owned weapons. Steven Dean, FBI special agent, said Barnes worked in communications. Bar nes is believed to have fled to the remote park on Sunday to hide after an earlier shooting at a New Year’s house party near Seattle that wounded four, two critically. Authorities suspect he then fatally shot ranger Margaret Anderson. Immediately after the park shooting, police cleared out Mount Rainier
of visitors and mounted a manhunt. Fear that tourists could be caught in the crossfire in a shootout with Barnes prompted officials to hold more than a 100 people at the visitors’ center before evacuating them in the middle of the night. Late Sunday, police said Barnes was a suspect in another shooting incident. On New Year’s, there was an argument at a house party in Skyway, south of Seattle, and gunfire erupted, police said. Barnes was connected to the shooting, said Sgt. Cindi West, King County Sheriff’s spokeswoman. Police believe Bar nes headed to the remote park wilder ness to “hide out” following the Skyway shooting. “The speculation is that he may have come up here, specifically for that reason, to get away,” parks spokesman Kevin Bacher told reporters early Monday. “The speculation is he threw some stuff in the car and headed up here to hide out.” Anderson had set up a roadblock Sunday morning to stop a man who had blown through a checkpoint rangers use to check if vehicles have tire chains for winter conditions. A
gunman opened fire on her before she was able to exit her vehicle, authorities say. Before fleeing, the gunman fired shots at both Anderson and the ranger that trailed him, but only Anderson was hit. Anderson would have been ar med, as she was one of the rangers tasked with law enforcement, Bacher said. Troyer said she was shot before she had even got out of the vehicle. Park superintendent Randy King said Anderson, a 34-year -old mother of two young girls who was married to another Rainier ranger, had served as a park ranger for about four years. King said Anderson’s husband also was working as a ranger elsewhere in the park at the time of the shooting. The shooting renewed debate about a federal law that made it legal for people to take loaded weapons into national parks. The 2010 law made possession of firearms subject to state gun laws. Bill Wade, the outgoing chair of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees, said Congress should be regretting its decision.
“The many congressmen and senators that voted for the legislation that allowed loaded weapons to be brought into the parks ought to be feeling pretty bad right now,” Wade said. Wade called Sunday’s fatal shooting a tragedy that could have been prevented. He hopes Congress will reconsider the law that took effect in early 2010, but doubts that will happen in today’s political climate. Calls and emails to the National Rifle Association requesting comment were not immediately returned on Monday. The NRA said media fears of gun violence in parks were unlikely to be realized, the NRA wrote in a statement about the law after it went into ef fect. “The new law af fects firearms possession, not use,” it said. The group pushed for the law saying people have a right to defend themselves against park animals and other people. King said the park would remain closed Tuesday as the investigation continued and the rangers grieve the loss of their colleague. “We have been through a horrific experience,” King said. “We’re going to need a little time to regroup.”
NEW YORK (AP) — A man in Texas is serving a 35-year prison sentence for spitting at a police officer — because he has the virus that causes AIDS and his saliva was deemed a deadly weapon. In Michigan, an HIV-positive man who allegedly bit a neighbor during an argument faced a bioterrorism charge. Charges for the same acts would have been far less severe if the defendants had been virus-free. Now, a coalition of advocacy groups — backed by an outspoken champion in Congress — is ratcheting up a campaign to press for review and possible repeal of criminal statutes specifically targeting HIVpositive people. “These laws are archaic,” said Rep. Barbara Lee, DCalif. “They’re criminalizing a population of people who should not be criminalized.” Lee introduced a bill in September that would provide states with incentives and support to reform criminal laws aimed at people with
HIV. Lee assumes the bill has little chance of passage while Republicans control the House, but hopes it will help raise awareness about the state laws. Thirty-four states have criminal laws that punish people for exposing another person to HIV, according to the advocacy groups working with Lee. Many of the laws were enacted early in the AIDS epidemic, when fear of the disease’s deadliness was at its highest and before advances in understanding how HIV was transmitted. The laws have not been revised even though AIDS — thanks to the development of medication regimens — is no longer viewed as a death sentence. Scott Burns, executive director of the National District Attorney’s Association, suggested that most prosecutors would oppose Lee’s bill and argue that the laws remain necessary to deter HIV-positive people from reckless or irresponsible
behavior. “Notwithstanding that we’ve made tremendous medical advances, I don’t know anyone who’d want to be infected with HIV and go through the treatment regimen,” he said. According to the Centers for Disease Control, HIV is spread primarily by unprotected sex with an HIV-positive person, sharing of tainted needles or syringes, and births by an HIV-infected mother. HIV is not spread by saliva, tears or sweat, and there are no documented cases of it being transmitted by spitting, according to the CDC. As for biting, the CDC says there is no transmission risk if the skin is not broken; in a “very small number of cases,” transmission did occur when a bite drew blood and caused severe tissue damage. While prosecutors defend the HIV laws as appropriate for certain cases, some activists argue that criminalization of exposure to HIV can backfire and actually
fuel the spread of the disease. They note that under most of the state laws, people who don’t know they have HIV are less culpable than those who do know. This fact could deter some people from learning their HIV status, and thus preclude some HIVpositive people from getting treatment. For advocacy groups working on behalf of HIV-positive people, the criminalization laws represent a negative side of a mixed picture. Overall, activists are heartened by progress in combatting HIVrelated discrimination, whether by private employers or the federal government. However, everyday discrimination does persist despite the Americans with Disabilities Act, which extends its anti-discrimination protections to people with HIV. In Pennsylvania, for example, a 13-year-old boy recently was denied admission to a private school because he is HIVpositive.

key role in producing more alfalfa with less water. It took several years to map the alfalfa genome and identify the markers that influence development of the plant’s shoots and roots during drought. Then a couple of years of breeding were needed to incorporate those characteristics into alfalfa cultivars typically grown by farmers in New Mexico. The work is more precise than classical plant breeding because the scientists were able to introduce only the drought tolerance characteristics they were after. “DNA markers just help us do a much better job of uncovering, tracking and selecting for natural genetic variation for drought tolerance,” Ray
said. The team just wrapped up its harvest of the first test crops grown with less water and the results are promising. All the plants had smaller yields because of the lack of water, but those with drought-tolerant DNA markers produced 9 percent to 15 percent more than those without the markers. One of the most promising cultivars being tested has a leafy canopy. More leaves means more nutritional value, Ray said. “If what we’re seeing is real, and it can be demonstrated that we see a yield advantage in multiple environments, then we’ve got a high forage quality population with enhanced drought resistance. That’s the best of both worlds,” he said. Other universities, the federal government and large corporations like Monsanto Co. have been

“The ultimate goal is solvency,” said Muñoz, who pointed out that retirees are now living longer and often end up receiving more in retirement benefits than they paid into the pension system during their careers.

Cruise’s ‘Mission’ tops box office Notebook: McGraw album out soon
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tom Cruise is off to a good start for the new year with a second-straight No. 1 weekend at the box office. Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” took in an estimated $38.3 million domestically over the long holiday weekend from Friday to Monday. That raised its total to $141.2 million. “Ghost Protocol” also pulled in $37 million overseas to push its international total to $225.3 million and worldwide haul to $366.5 million. The movie helped lift distributor Paramount to a record $5.17 billion in worldwide box of fice for 2011, topping the previous high of $4.8 billion set by Warner Bros. in 2010. Paramount’s 2011 hits included “T ransformers: Dark of the Moon,” which took in $1.1 billion worldwide, along with “Thor,” ‘’Captain America: The First Avenger,” ‘’Kung Fu Panda 2,” ‘’Puss in Boots” and “Rango.” Finishing second again for the weekend was Robert Downey Jr.’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” with $26.5 million. The family sequel “Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked” came in third with $21 million. Rounding out the topfive were Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse” at No. 4 with $19.2 million and David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” just behind at No. 5 with $19 million.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tim McGraw’s latest studio album, which was at the center of a recent court battle with his record label, is set to be released on Jan. 24. The new album “Emotional Traffic” features 12 songs including the No. 1 single “Felt Good on My Lips.” McGraw said in a statement from Curb Records that the new album is one of the best he has ever made. A court battle had left the album with an uncertain future. Curb Records had sued McGraw to prevent him from recording or signing with another label until he fulfilled what Curb believed was his obligation for a fifth album. Curb had argued that “Emotional Traffic” was
recorded and completed too early. The label said it wanted McGraw’s newest songs. McGraw won a ruling Nov. 30 that said he could sign with another label and record new music. His attor neys have argued that Curb is trying to put his career on hold. He’s had a 20-year relationship with the record label, and the dispute is over a contract signed in 1997. The singer countersued on grounds that his career was L being stymied ETTERS and the label kept releasing greatest hit compilations that were used to draw out the life of his contract. An attorney for McGraw has denied that McGraw was in negotiations with
any other labels.
Franklin is engaged to longtime friend
NEW YORK (AP) — Aretha Franklin is engaged to longtime friend William “Willie” Wilkerson. The Grammy-winning singer told The Associated Press in a statement Monday that she and Wilkerson are considering a summer wedding, perhaps in Miami Beach, Fla. The Queen of Soul wants to follow the ceremony with a reception on a private yacht. The 69-year-old jokes: “No, I’m not pregnant.” Franklin and Wilkerson became engaged over the holidays. Franklin has been married twice before.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The commemorative T shirts and caps proclaiming the Denver Broncos 2011 AFC West champions sat mostly untouched in the team’s locker room Monday. After watching replays of their 7-3 loss to Kansas City, the Broncos still weren’t in any mood to celebrate their return to the playoffs after a six-year absence. “Nah, we’re not excited about that, man,” linebacker Joe Mays said. “It’s like we got the championship by default. You know, you want to be in control of your own destiny, and we don’t feel like we played good enough to actually own up to being division champs. “We feel we should have at least played good enough to earn being a champion.” The keepsakes were handed out Monday at the team’s headquarters rather than at the stadium Sunday night after the Broncos backed their way into the postseason party when Oakland lost to San Diego.
“I wasn’t expecting our locker room yesterday to be jubilant by any stretch of the imagination,” coach John Fox said. “I wouldn’t expect it to be any different because they had to watch it over again. “We’ll have time to get them in the right frame of mind.” The Broncos (8-8) host the Pittsburgh Steelers (124) next Sunday. A day after losing to former teammate Kyle Orton and the Chiefs, Tim Tebow walked through the quiet locker room Monday with a big ice pack on his right shoulder and guard Chris Kuper hobbled in on a broken left leg that landed him on injured reserve. “He’s a real big loss,” rookie right tackle Orlando Franklin said. “He definitely was the bus driver on my side. He was making all the calls, and whatnot. Russ (Hochstein) stepped in and did a good job yesterday.” The Broncos fortified their line Monday by signSee BRONCOS, Page B2
NA T I O N A L BRIEFS GAMECOCKS CAPTURE CAPITAL ONE BOWL, 30-13
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Alshon Jeffery had 148 yards and a touchdown before getting tossed out of the game for fighting and No. 11 South Carolina’s defense had six sacks and shut out No. 21 Nebraska in the final three quarters of 30-13 win at the Capital One Bowl on Monday. The victory gave South Carolina (11-2) 11 wins for the first time in school history and snapped a string of three straight bowl losses. Nebraska (9-4) lost its second consecutive bowl game and drops to 12-6 alltime in bowl matchups against SEC foes. Both teams lost standout players in the third quarter when Jeffery, playing weeks after surgery on his hand, and Cornhuskers Alfonso cornerback Dennard were ejected for throwing punches at each other after a play. But the Gamecocks kept the pressure on even without him and went up 23-13 with 12:25 to play on a 9yard touchdown pass from Shaw to Kenny Miles. Miles then added a 3-yard touchdown run with just over three minutes left — his first of the season — to put the game out of reach. Jeffery out-jumped the Nebraska secondary in the end zone to catch a 51-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass from Shaw at the end of the first half to send the Gamecocks into the locker room with a 16-13 lead. Shaw passed for 161 yards in the half, hooking up with Jeffery on four of his five completions. Shaw finished the game 11 for 17 for 230 yards and ran for 42 yards and a touchdown.
SPARTANS WIN OUTBACK BOWL
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw for 300 yards and one touchdown and Dan Conroy kicked a 28-yard field goal in the third overtime, giving No. 12 Michigan State a 33-30 victory over No. 18 Georgia in the Outback Bowl on Monday. Georgia’s Blair Walsh became the Southeastern Conference’s career scoring leader with a field goal in the second extra period. But he missed a 42-yarder in the first overtime after conservative play-calling and had a 47-yard attempt blocked on the final play of the game. Michigan State (11-3) ended a five-game bowl losing streak with its first postseason win since beating Fresno State in the 2001 Silicon Valley Bowl. Georgia (10-4) finished on a two-game losing streak, including a lopsided loss to top-ranked LSU in the SEC championship game.

It’s a Cowboy ‘Fiesta’
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Brandon Weeden threw for 399 yards and three touchdowns to Justin Blackmon in his final collegiate game, and Quinn Sharp hit a 22yard field goal in overtime to give No. 3 Oklahoma State a 41-38 win over Andrew Luck and No. 4 Stanford in a wildly entertaining Fiesta Bowl on Monday night. The most anticipated postseason game outside of the BCS championship, the Fiesta Bowl was an impressive offensive show, two of the nation’s best teams trading big plays and scores. Oklahoma State (12-1) had the last one on Sharp’s game-winner to win in its first BCS bowl game, earning a chance to stake claim at
being No. 1 in The Associated Press poll should Alabama beat LSU in the BCS title game. Stanford (11-2) had a chance to win in regulation, but redshirt freshman Jordan Williamson hooked a 35-yard field goal wide left as time expired. He also missed from 43 yards in overtime. Usually balanced Oklahoma State had just 15 yards rushing on 13 carries, but Weeden made up for it, completing 29 of 42 passes and the three scores to Blackmon, who had eight catches for 186 yards. After the game, Blackmon said he will skip his senior

Ducks come up Rose-y
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Oregon’s incredible offense busted up Wisconsin and the record books on the way to the Ducks’ first Rose Bowl victory in 95 years. Darron Thomas passed for three touchdowns, De’Anthony Thomas scored on runs of 91 and 64 yards, and the No. 6 Ducks earned their first bowl victory under coach Chip Kelly, holding off Wisconsin 45-38 Monday night in the highest-scoring Rose Bowl ever played. And it wasn’t over until a video review confirmed the Badgers (11-3) ran out of time at the Oregon 25, out of timeouts and unable to spike the ball in time to stop the clock for a lastgasp fling. Lavasier Tuinei caught eight passes for 158 yards and two TDs for the Ducks (12-2), who had no postseason success to show for Kelly’s otherwise wildly successful three-year tenure until this landmark offensive per formance in the 98th Rose Bowl. Oregon hadn’t won the West Coast’s biggest game since 1917. “It’s been 95 years since you could say: Oregon Ducks, Rose Bowl champions,” Kelly said after the Ducks held Wisconsin scoreless in the fourth quarter. The Granddaddy of Them All had never seen this many points, beating the record 80 scored by Washington and Iowa in 1991. With the Ducks wearing mirrored helmets and playing at their usual frantic pace, Oregon racked up

621 total yards, just shy of the Rose Bowl record. Montee Ball rushed for 122 of his 164 yards in the first half for the Badgers (11-3), who lost the Rose Bowl for the second straight year despite managing 508 yards of their own. Ball tied Barry Sanders’ FBS record with his 39th touchdown of the season, while Russell Wilson passed for 296 yards and two scores. “This team showed what Oregon football is all about,” said linebacker Kiko Alonso, named the game’s top defensive player after getting a key intercep-
tion. Wisconsin had two drives to tie it after Oregon kicked a field goal with 6:50 to play, but Jared Abbrederis fumbled near the Oregon sideline after making a long catch. The ball plopped onto the turf without even bouncing, and Oregon’s Michael Clay jumped on it with 4:06 left. That video review went the Ducks’ way, too. The Badgers had burned two timeouts early in the second half, so Oregon was able to run the clock down to 23 seconds before

Two rematches of regular-season games will highlight the wild-card round, which was set up when Cincinnati grabbed the final AFC spot Sunday and Atlanta moved ahead of Detroit in the NFC. The Bengals got into the postseason despite losing 2416 to Baltimore, winning a tiebreaker at 9-7 over Tennessee. Cincinnati visits Houston to open the playoffs on Saturday. The Texans (10-6) beat the Bengals 20-19 in Cincinnati on Dec. 11. “We’ve been successful up until this point, and we’ve got a shot in the playoffs,” Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton said. “We’re in it. Now it’s what we do with it. I think everybody’s got the right attitude.” Detroit will need to find the right attitude when it visits New Orleans on Saturday night. The Lions (10-6) lost a shootout at Green Bay 45-41 in their finale, meaning a return to the Big Easy, where they fell 31-17 on Dec. 4. “Everyone’s frustrated because you want to win anytime you play,” defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said. “But it won’t put a damper on our season, and we’re excited about our opportunity and we’re in the playoffs.” See PLAYOFFS, Page B2

Linebacker Wesley Woodyard said Dawkins addressed the entire team one other time, when the Broncos stumbled to a 1-4 start and made the switch from Orton to Tebow. Dawkins’ admonition might be the only way he can contribute in these playoffs. He sat out Sunday and his status for the game this weekend is uncertain. The Broncos have lots of flaws that require a quick fix. Among them: a stagnant offense led by turnover-prone Tebow and a stalled pass rush stymied by Von Miller’s injured right thumb. Tebow, the author of a six-game winning streak and five fourth-quarter comebacks this season, has regressed over the last But the Badgers took too long. The of ficials ruled time had indeed expired, and the Ducks sprinted onto the field to the frenzied cheers of their outnumbered fans. The Ducks and Badgers produced the highestscoring first quarter (1414) and first half (28-28) in Rose Bowl history, eventually surpassing the 80 scored in Washington’s 46-34 win over Iowa es. The Fiesta Bowl needed a pick-me-up game after the year it had. Last year’s game was a dud on pretty much all accounts. Connecticut had trouble filling its allotment of tickets and keeping up with Oklahoma — a 44-10 rout — leading to a big dip in the ratings. Not long after that, the bowl got tangled in controversy, nearly losing its BCS status following financial improprieties that were uncovered and led to the firing of executive director John Junker.

After the first four turnover game of his career at Buffalo on Christmas Eve, Tebow looked timid Sunday, unwilling to throw in tight spaces.

Oklahoma State has an electrifying offense — second in scoring, third in total yards — run by the 28-yearold Weeden and featuring Blackmon, the two-time Biletnikoff Award winner.

So are the Giants and Broncos, who won their divisions in dif ferent manners Sunday. New York’s 31-14 victory over Dallas gave the Giants (9-7) the NFC East title. Atlanta, which earned the No. 5 seed in the conference by routing Tampa Bay 45-24 earlier in the day, will visit the Meadowlands. “I would not want to face the New York Giants in the playof fs right now,” running back Brandon Jacobs said. “I got the same feeling” as when the Giants won the Super Bowl as a wild card after the 2007 season. Even without any Tim Tebow heroics, the Broncos won the AFC West. They did it despite falling 7-3 to the Kansas City Chiefs because San Diego knocked off Oakland 38-26. The Broncos and Raiders tied for the division lead at 8-8, but Denver won on the tiebreaker, better results in common games. T ebow’s late-game magic helped Denver turn around its season, from 2-5 to the top of a weak division.

Gators win Gator Bowl
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s special teams came up big in the Gator Bowl, scoring twice as the Gators beat Ohio State 24-17 on Monday in a game between Urban Meyer’s old team and his future one. Andre Debose returned a kickoff 99 yards — the longest scoring play in bowl history — and Chris Rainey blocked a punt that was returned for a touchdown. The speedsters helped the Gators (7-6) avoid their first losing season since 1979 and pick up some much-needed momentum after losing six of their previous eight games. Ohio State (6-7) finished below .500 for the first time since 1988. The Buckeyes can take solace in knowing that Meyer, who officially takes over at Ohio State this week, will make it a priority to improve special teams. Meyer did that in his six seasons in Gainesville, and Rainey and Debose were two of his most prized recruits. Ohio State fell to 0-10 in bowl games against teams from the Southeastern Conference. Yes, the Buckeyes beat Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl last year. But that victory was vacated. The latest loss had everything to do with Florida’s speed. The Gators dominated the defensive line of scrimmage. They had a season-high six sacks, harassing Braxton Miller on nearly every passing play. Jaye Howard and Sharrif Floyd were disruptive all afternoon. Florida had similar success the last time it played Ohio State. The Gators were dominant on defense in a 41-14 win in the 2007 Bowl Championship Series national title game in Glendale, Ariz. Debose and Rainey proved to be the difference in the much-hyped rematch that centered around Meyer. Just after Ohio State tied the game at 7 on Miller’s 5-yard pass to DeVier Posey in the second quarter, Debose took the kickoff, made one cut to the outside and went untouched for his third career special teams touchdown. The Buckeyes never got close enough to even swipe at him, let alone make the tackle. Florida was up 14-10 at halftime and essentially put the game out of reach on the opening possession of the third. Rainey came off the left end and blocked Ben Buchanan’s punt. Seldom-used linebacker Graham Stewart scooped it up at the 14-yard line and scored the first touchdown of his career. It was Rainey’s sixth blocked punt of his career, breaking the school and SEC record. Miller completed 18 of 23 passes for 162 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 15 times for 20 yards. Ohio State’s Dan Herron ran for 82 yards, but also had a fumble. Posey finished with five catches for 37 yards. The Buckeyes lost four in a row to end the season.
Keenum’s record-setting career ends with bowl victory
DALLAS (AP) — Penn State’s tumultuous year ended with a 30-14 loss to Houston in the TicketCity Bowl on Monday, a dispiriting finish to a season in which coach Joe Paterno was fired as part of a child sex-abuse scandal that shook college sports. The 24th-ranked Nittany Lions were picked apart by Cougars star Case Keenum, who threw for 532 yards and three touchdowns. Penn State was allowing 162 yards passing per game, but Keenum threw for more than double that by halftime. “I thought the guys came out and they played hard. It’s been a difficult year for them,” Penn State interim coach Tom Bradley
said. “It just didn’t go our way.” Keenum burned the Nittany Lions’ veteran secondary with touchdown passes of 40 and 75 yards to build a 24-7 lead by halftime. It was the school’s first bowl game without Paterno as head coach since the 1962 Gator Bowl, a 17-7 loss to Florida. The Hall of Famer was fired Nov. 9 in the aftermath of the shocking charges against retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Longtime defensive coordinator Bradley took over on an interim basis, tasked with guiding a team besieged by media scrutiny. “These kids have been through hell and back,” said assistant coach Jay Paterno, Joe’s son. Bypassed by more prominent bowls, some Nittany Lions (9-4) debated whether to travel to Dallas at all, then vowed they were over getting jilted and focused on stopping No. 20 Houston (13-1). Turned out Linbacker U. got trampled over by Keenum and Houston’s high-octane offense. Receiver Patrick Edwards burned safety Macolm Willis for a 40-yard touchdown pass from Keenum down the left sideline for a 7-0 lead just 1:52 into the game that often resembled a one-sided track meet. Keenum hit Justin Johnson for an 8-yard TD pass with 2:35 left for a 17-0 lead. Already the NCAA career leader coming into the game for passing yardage and touchdown passes, Keenum added another record to his impressive resume. His 227 first-quarter passing yards set the record for most passing yards in one quarter in any bowl game, breaking the mark previously held by Louisville’s Browning Nagle (223 yards) against Alabama in the first quarter of the 1991 Fiesta Bowl, according to TicketCity Bowl officials. Penn State All-American defensive tackle Devon Still, already slowed by turf toe, could not keep up with Keenum’s quick release and Houston’s no-huddle attack. The Cougars exploited Penn State’s bend-but-don’t-break defense across the middle, including Edwards’ 75-yard touchdown reception up the seam from a scrambling Keenum for a 24-7 lead by halftime. Keenum finished 45 of 69 passing — two fewer attempts than the number of offensive plays Penn State ran all afternoon. With 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Penn State had already given up 552 yards of total offense to Houston, the most allowed by the Nittany Lions all season. Bolden finished 7 of 26 passing for 137 yards, while Stephfon Green ran for 63 yards on 15 carries including a 6-yard scoring run on a direct snap in the second quarter.

Raiders. “It’s obviously frustrating when you hear the other outcomes of other games and know what was there to be had just makes it that much worse, that much more difficult,” Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer said. Baltimore (12-4) took the AFC North and a first-round bye as the No. 2 seed when it outlasted Cincinnati. Even though the Bengals lost, their 9-7 record earned them a wild card in a head-to-head tiebreaker over Tennessee, the only other team with that record in the AFC. The Bengals beat the Titans 24-17 in November. Pittsburgh (12-4) is the other wild card, but lost both games to the Ravens this year to finish second in the division. The Steelers, who beat Cleveland 13-9, will be at Denver next Sunday. “Now is the time to go out and play our best football,” said Ben Roethlisberger, who went 23 of 40 for 221 yards on his gimpy left ankle. “If you are a great team, you have to win on the road. We’d like to get it together, starting next week. We have not been able to put it all together yet this year, whether because of injury, weather, a lot of factors.” By winning every game in the second half of the season, the Patriots own home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs. By losing their last three games, the New York Jets won’t be going to a third straight conference title game.

first quarter. It should be comforting to the Patriots, except that they have lost their last two home playoff games, and their last three postseason games overall. “It depends on how we play,” three-time Super Bowl champion T om Brady said. “It’s great playing at home. It’s great to have a bye. But I think we have to concentrate here this week on what we need to do to play our best football in a couple weeks.” The Jets (8-8) finished a late-season collapse with a 19-17 loss at Miami to fall out of contention. They dropped their final three games after taking control of the AFC’s final wild-card spot. “We played well in spurts this season, but we weren’t consistent enough,” said quarterback Mark Sanchez, who was among the most inconsistent Jets. “You have to ask yourself the tough questions and clean things up for next season. “It doesn’t feel good now, but we’ll come back and be just fine.” San Francisco (13-3) is just fine thanks to a tur naround season. Under first-year coach Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers will be the No. 2 seed in the NFC behind Green Bay (15-1) after a 34-27 win at St. Louis. “I’ll sit back and watch the games. Let the games begin,” tight end Vernon Davis said. “My mind is about to go on a whole new phase, that’s the way I see it. We’ve just got to keep growing, keep trucking.” New Orleans (13-3) is seeded third after a 4517 win over Carolina. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W y-New Orleans . .13 x-Atlanta . . . . . . .10 Carolina . . . . . . .6 Tampa Bay . . . . .4 North . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W y-Green Bay . . .15 x-Detroit . . . . . . .10 Chicago . . . . . . . .8 Minnesota . . . . . .3 West . . . . . . . . . . . . . .W y-San Francisco .13 Arizona . . . . . . . .8 Seattle . . . . . . . . .7 St. Louis . . . . . . .2

NFL capsules: Giants beat Cowboys to win NFC East Roswell Daily Record
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys bookended their disappointing season with losses at the Meadowlands — defeats that kept them out of the playoffs. Most agonizing was Sunday night’s 31-14 flop against the New York Giants, who took the NFC East title and sent the Cowboys home without a postseason berth. Dallas (8-8) opened 2011 with a 27-24 loss to the Jets at MetLife Stadium. A win in either game could have made a world of difference. “It’s extremely painful and it’s a damn shame,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “We have a good team and I thought we would be going to the playoffs, but that didn’t happen.” Because of Eli Manning and Victor Cruz, it didn’t. Manning threw three touchdown passes, including a 74-yarder to Cruz, and the Giants (9-7) claimed the final spot in the NFL playoffs. New York took a 21-0 halftime lead and though Dallas got within seven points in the fourth quarter, the Cowboys really weren’t a match for the Giants. The Cowboys lost four of their final five games in their first full season under coach Jason Garrett. “They got the lead and made it stand up,” said Tony Romo, who posted decent numbers despite a right hand injury, but was sacked six times. “It’s never a good feeling when you lose. We put so much time and effort into winning this and we came out and didn’t play our best.” Not even close. And when they got within striking distance, the Cowboys fell apart on defense, particularly on a 44-yard jump ball pass to Cruz that tur ned things back in New York’s favor. That led to a field goal, and the Giants added another TD on a 4yard pass to Hakeem Nicks after Manning hit him for 36 yards on the previous play. “I mean it comes down to this game is about players,” Dallas linebacker Keith Brooking said, “and this game is about players making plays, and we didn’t do that. We were very efficient in that all year, but we obviously didn’t do that tonight.” New York won three of its final four games for 65-year-old coach Tom Coughlin and earned a wildcard home game next Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons (106). “I knew we were going to fight and keep playing until the end, I feel good about the way we’re handling the ups and downs, and it comes down to finishing,” Manning said after throwing for 346 yards and no interceptions. “We’ve had a lot of ups and down, but when our team needed it most we responded,” said the up-and-coming Cruz, who has capped his team-record setting season with six catches for 178 yards. “We were able to keep levelheaded when we were on the four-game skid.” Dallas was its own worst enemy in a game with the season on the line. It missed tackles on all three of the Giants’ three firsthalf touchdowns, failed to recover two fumbles within its grasp in the half and failed to convert on Romo’s sneak on fourth-and-1 at the Giants 10 while trailing 21-7. Romo moved the Cowboys in the second half but all he could generate were touchdown passes of 34 and 6 yards to Laurent Robinson, the last one getting Dallas within 21-14 with 10:15 to play. Cruz, however, had the 44-yard third-down catch and another for 20 yards to set up Lawrence Tynes’ 28-yard field goal and Manning iced the game with the TD pass to Nicks with 3:41 to play. Manning finished 24 of 33 as the Giants beat the Cowboys for the second time in four games and ended a regular season marked by inconsistency on a high note. Cruz, who set a singleseason record for yards receiving, did his touchdown salsa after the first score. Romo was 29 of 37 for 289 yards but he was always under pressure, including twice being sacked by Osi Umenyiora, who returned to the lineup for the first time since spraining an ankle late last month. Dallas’ final possession ended with Romo being sacked by Justin Tuck and losing a fumble. “We needed this win,” Umenyiora said. “This is the biggest win we’ve been a part of for a while.” The Giants haven’t won a post-
season game since beating thethen unbeaten New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in February 2008, and one thing seemingly apparent is this team is peaking. Coming off a 29-14 win over the local rival Jets last week in what might have been the Giants’ best game of the season, Coughlin’s team put together another outstanding 30 minutes in jumping to the 21-0 halftime lead. Cruz, who sparked the win over the Jets with a team-record 99yard touchdown, made another monster play on the Giants’ second offensive series, turning a short pass into points. Cruz caught a short square out, eluded a tackle by Terence Newman, turned the corner after getting a seal block from Nicks and outraced two defenders down the sideline in front of the Giants bench for a 7-0 lead. Dallas went three-and-out but had a chance to get right back into the game when Will Blackmon muffed a punt at near his 30-yard line and Alan Ball failed to recover. Ahmad Bradshaw made Dallas pay with his 5-yard TD run. Safety Abram Elam had a chance to tackle Bradshaw in the backfield and Bradshaw scooted into the end zone after he missed. Manning had passes of 14 and 12 yards to rookie fullback Henry Hynoski in an 80-yard touchdown drive just before the half. Bradshaw, who had a 29-yard run early in the drive, broke a tackle by linebacker Bradie James in scoring on a 10-yard swing pass for a 21-0 lead.
CHIEFS 7, BRONCOS 3 DENVER (AP) — Tim Tebow fell short in his latest comeback bid, yet his Denver Broncos are still going to the playoffs. Former Bronco Kyle Orton got his revenge in leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a 7-3 win over Denver on Sunday, but it’s the Broncos who clinched the AFC West and are headed to the postseason, where they will host Pittsburgh next Sunday. After congratulating their former starting quarterback, the Broncos celebrated the end to their six-year playoff drought once San Diego beat Oakland 3826 later Sunday. Losers of their last three games, the Broncos finished 8-8, same as the Raiders. They win their first division title since 2005 on a tiebreaker.
RAVENS 24, BENGALS 16 CINCINNATI (AP) — Ray Rice had a pair of long touchdown runs that gave the Ravens their third AFC North title and the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. Baltimore (12-4) will get a firstround bye followed by a playoff game at home, where the Ravens are 8-0 this season. Despite the loss, the Bengals (9-7) also got into the playoffs, securing the final wild card as the Jets and Broncos also lost. It’s Cincinnati’s third playoff appearance in the last 21 years. The Bengals will be at Houston on Saturday. With Paul Brown Stadium packed with Bengals fans for the first time all season, Rice made the biggest plays on a blustery afternoon. He had a career-best 70-yard touchdown run on the fourth play. Rice also broke a 51-yard touchdown run with 5:41 to go and finished with 191 yards on 24 carries.
CHARGERS 38, RAIDERS 26 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes and Richard Goodman returned a kickoff 105 yards for another score as Oakland’s playoff hopes ended. The Raiders (8-8) went into the final day of the season needing to win and get help to end an eightyear playoff drought. They got the assistance they needed when Denver (8-8) lost 7-3 at home to Kansas City but were unable to do their part by beating the Chargers (8-8). The Broncos won the division based on record versus common opponents.
STEELERS 13, BROWNS 9 CLEVELAND (AP) — Isaac Redman replaced an injured Rashard Mendenhall and ran for a touchdown as Pittsburgh limped into the AFC playoffs. Redman scored on a 7-yard run in the third quarter for the Steelers (12-4), who finished tied with Baltimore for first in the AFC North but lost the tiebreaker
Tuesday, January 3, 2012
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) walks off the field with his teammates after Dallas fell to the Giants in the final regular season game, Sunday. The Giants won the NFC East and secured a playoff berth with the 31-14 win. because the Ravens beat them twice. Pittsburgh visits AFC West champion Denver next Sunday. The Steelers had to survive two fumbles by Redman in the second half and a pass into the end zone by the Browns (4-12) on the final play that was batted down. Mendenhall hurt his right knee in the first quarter on a short run and didn’t return. His status for the postseason is unknown. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for 221 yards on a severely sprained ankle.
PATRIOTS 49, BILLS 21 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady led the Patriots back from a three-touchdown deficit as they scored 49 straight points and clinched home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Brady finished the regular season with the second most yards passing in NFL history, 5,235, after throwing for 338. Drew Brees, who last week broke Dan Marino’s record of 5,084 with the Miami Dolphins in 1984, added 389 Sunday for the New Orleans Saints and ended with 5,486. The Patriots (13-3) finished the season with eight straight wins. But for the second straight game, they fell behind early. They beat the Miami Dolphins 27-24 after trailing 17-0 at halftime then rallied after the Bills (6-10) scored touchdowns on their first three possessions, drawing boos from the home fans. JAGUARS 19, COLTS 13 JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Indianapolis locked up the top pick in April’s NFL draft, setting the stage to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a season-high 169 yards, clinching the NFL rushing title and breaking Fred Taylor’s single-season franchise record in the Jaguars’ victory. The Jaguars (5-11) became the first AFC South opponent to sweep Indianapolis (2-14) since 2002 and gave outgoing owner Wayne Weaver a victory in his final game. The Colts may have been the big winners, though. Indy would have dropped to the No. 2 spot in the draft with a victory in Jacksonville. Instead, owner Jim Irsay will have the choice to draft Luck and give the team a young quarterback to join four -time MVP Peyton Manning.
TITANS 23, TEXANS 22 HOUSTON (AP) — Matt Hasselbeck threw two touchdown passes, but the Titans’ slim playoff chances ended when they did not get the helped they needed from several other teams. The Titans (9-7) have their first winning record since 2008 in Mike Munchak’s first season. Houston (10-6) will head into its first postseason on a threegame losing streak. The Texans were locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs and coach Gary Kubiak played mostly reserves in the second half. Houston hosts Cincinnati on Saturday. Rookie starter T.J. Yates left the game after one series with a shoulder injury and was replaced by Jake Delhomme. Kubiak said Yates could have returned if necessary. The Texans pulled within a point late in the game on a 5-yard TD pass by Delhomme, but failed
on a 2-point conversion that would have won it.
DOLPHINS 19, JETS 17 MIAMI (AP) — Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions and the Jets were eliminated from the AFC wild-card playoff race. Each turnover led to a field goal, and the Jets gave up six third-down conversions during the Dolphins’ 21-play, 94-yard drive for their only touchdown. The Jets (8-8) came into the game needing a win along with losses by three other teams to reach the playoffs. Instead, they finished the season with three consecutive defeats, a big step backward for a team that reached the AFC title game each of the past two years. The Dolphins (6-10) completed their third consecutive losing season, their longest such stretch since the 1960s.
SAINTS 45, PANTHERS 17 NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees threw for 389 yards and five touchdowns, and New Orleans set a slew of NFL and club records. The NFL single-season records set by the Saints (13-3), who head into the playof fs on an eight-game winning streak, included offensive yards with 7,474, team yards passing with 5,347 and first downs with 416. The Saints are home to Detroit on Saturday night. Brees, who was 28 of 35, finished with a record 468 completions this season, breaking Peyton Manning’s 2010 mark of 450. He finished the season completing 71.6 percent of his passes, breaking his own 2009 NFL record 70.6 completion percentage. Tight end Jimmy Graham had 97 yards receiving, finishing with 1,310 yards for the season, a record for tight ends later broken by New England’s Rob Gronkowski. The Panthers finished 6-10.
PACKERS 45, LIONS 41 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Backup quarterback Matt Flynn threw a touchdown pass to Jermichael Finley with 1:10 left to finish off his record-setting day of 480 yards and six TD passes. With Aaron Rodgers resting for the playoffs, Flynn set club single-game records for yards passing and touchdowns. It was an ideal afternoon for the Packers (15-1) who got to rest their starting quarterback and several other big-name players without losing momentum. Flynn barely got the Packers past Matthew Stafford, who threw for 520 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Playoff-bound Detroit (10-6), has lost 21 straight road games to the Packers, including the postseason. The Lions are at New Orleans on Saturday night.
FALCONS 42, BUCCANEERS 24 Julio Jones caught two touchdown passes in a span of 26 seconds, Michael Turner ran for two scores and Atlanta put up a team-record 42 first-half points to cruise to a 45-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday to clinch the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoffs. The Falcons (10-6) and Detroit (10-6) are the NFC wild-cards. Atlanta, which beat Detroit on
Oct. 23, won the tiebreaker with the Lions for the more favorable seeding. The Falcons will play at the winner of Sunday night’s Dallas-New York Giants game in the first round of the playoffs. Josh Freeman threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in the first half as the Buccaneers (4-12) closed their season with their 10th straight loss, leaving the status of coach Raheem Morris in doubt. The Falcons are at the Giants next Sunday. CARDINALS 23, SEAHAWKS 20, OT GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Larry Fitzgerald’s spectacular onehanded grab helped set up a 28yard field goal by Jay Feely to give Arizona its fourth overtime victory at home in the last nine weeks of the season. Arizona (8-8) finished the season 7-2 after a six-game losing streak left it 1-6. Seattle (7-9) had rallied to tie the game after trailing 20-10 early in the fourth quarter. Fitzgerald caught nine passes for 149 yards after one reception for 2 yards in the first half. John Skelton completed 22 of 40 for 271 yards and a touchdown with one interception for Arizona.
BEARS 17, VIKINGS 13 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Charles Tillman’s interception return in the second quarter gave Chicago (8-8) the lead for good, and the Bears stopped their five-game losing streak despite 3½ sacks by Jared Allen. Allen finished the season with 22 sacks, behind Michael Strahan’s NFL mark of 22½ for the Giants in 2001. Joe Webb relieved Christian Ponder at quarterback for the Vikings (3-13) for the third time in the last month, but the scrambling Webb wasn’t able to keep the Vikings from matching the worst record in franchise history.
EAGLES 34, REDSKINS 10 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael Vick threw three touchdown passes, including a 62-yarder to DeSean Jackson, as the Eagles closed the season with four straight wins. The Eagles (8-8) are hoping to carry the momentum from their strong finish into next season. But they can’t be satisfied after entering the year with Super Bowl aspirations. It’s the first time since 2007 that Philadelphia didn’t qualify for the postseason and just the fourth time in coach Andy Reid’s 13 seasons. The Eagles set a franchise record for total yards on offense with 6,386. The Redskins (5-11) finished in last place in the NFC East for a franchise-worst fourth straight year. It was Mike Shanahan’s worst full season in 18 years as a coach.
49ERS 34, RAMS 27 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Crabtree caught two touchdown passes, one from kicker David Akers on a perfectly executed trick play, and San Francisco wrapped up the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC and a first-round bye.

chance they were meant to have. However, my husband is concerned only with the financial side of it as we have been living on one salary and things are tight. My heart aches over this. Do I do what I believe is right and stand by my religious and moral beliefs, and take the chance my husband will resent me for the rest of our marriage? I’m afraid I’ll resent him if I have to destroy them. I’d appreciate some words of wisdom. DEADLOCKED IN NEW JERSEY
DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married 11 years. We went through eight years of fertility treatments before having our twins. When they were a year old, we discovered I was pregnant with our third child. The twins are now 2 1/2 and the baby is almost a year old. For the first time in our marriage, my husband and I are at an impasse. We have two embryos left and need to decide what to do. We either use them or destroy them. I think we need to give the embryos the
DEAR DEADLOCKED: This isn’t an either/or question. I discussed it with Diane Goodman, the past president of the Academy of California Family Formation Lawyers, who suggests a third option. Your embryos could be donated for embryo adoption by a couple who have been unable to conceive, and who would love to
raise them. For more information, you should contact an attor ney who specializes in family formation, or contact the Snowflakes Frozen Embryo Adoption and Donation Program. Its phone number is 714-693-5437 and its website is www.nightlight.org. #####
DEAR ABBY: I am 29 and met my birth mother last month for the first time. She abandoned two other children besides me. “Angie” is an alcoholic and has cirrhosis of the liver. When I met her she was in rehab and had been sober for two weeks. The day after she was released she was rearrested for driving with a revoked license. The following day she was arrested for DUI. It’s obvious that my birth mother has a major addiction, and my heart breaks for her because she has no support system. Should I reach out and

DEAR CONFUSED AND TORN: Before involving yourself any further with Angie, take some time to visit Al-Anon (listed in your phone directory) and Adult Children of Alcoholics (adultchildren.org). That you want to help her is laudable, but it’s important that you fully understand what you’re letting yourself in for if you do. Much as you might wish to, you cannot “fix” other people — only they can do that. The Serenity Prayer from AA says it clearly: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” It applies to you.

Dear Readers: WINTER is here, and in some areas of the country it can get deathly cold. The most important hint is to be prepared by having lifesaving supplies in your car! A plastic bin with a lid makes a good container. Some items to have: * Gloves, socks, hats and blankets. * Bottled drinking water and a few snacks, like nuts. * First-aid kit. * A flashlight with fresh batteries, and flares. * Cellphone charger. * If applicable, baby food and diapers.

Dear Heloise: Take your old newspaper to the vet. Every time I take mine to the vet, people in the waiting room are amazed that the vets need old newspaper. Some vets have to buy newspaper for their kennels. Linda in Poteet, Texas Cabbie, our mini-schnauzer, agrees: “Woof, woof.” Heloise #####
For Better or For Worse
Dear Readers: The following letter concerns our ongoing dialogue about telephone customer-service representatives:
Dear Heloise: Call-center employees are tethered by headset to the phone, desk and computer for hours at a stretch, which can become stressful. I’ve worked at a few call centers. I’m sure that customer compliments helped me thrive in those positions. Advice for all customer-service reps, if management permits: When a client or caller is particularly complimentary, make the offer to introduce or transfer him or her to your supervisor. You’re not fishing for the “attaboy” if it’s spontaneously offered. This will allow the supervisor to check the record of your transaction to help document the compliment. I no longer work in customer service, but I try to include a compliment in my calls to call centers to brighten a representative’s day and in case a rep’s managers are monitoring. Remember also to compliment the service personnel you meet by telephone, email, mail, etc. G.M. in San Antonio
You are right, and I’ve said this repeatedly! Give a compliment when warranted; it takes only a few moments. Heloise #####
The Wizard of Id
Dear Heloise: I attended a funeral, and afterward thought about the big job the family had ahead of them with writing thank-you notes. An easy way to simplify this is to enclose a mailing-address label with your address on it in your sympathy card. All they will have to do is stick it on the envelope, instead of hunting for an address. I read your column every day and love it! Jane in Wabasha, Minn.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A northeast Ohio well used to dispose of wastewater from oil and gas drilling almost certainly caused a series of 11 minor quakes in the Youngstown area since last spring, a seismologist investigating the quakes said Monday. Research is continuing on the now-shuttered injection well at Youngstown and seismic activity, but it might take a year for the wastewater -related rumblings in the earth to dissipate, said John Armbruster of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York. Brine wastewater dumped in wells comes from drilling operations, including the so-called fracking process to extract gas from underground shale that has been a source of concern among environmental groups and some property owners. Injection wells have also been suspected in quakes in Arkansas, Colorado and Oklahoma, Ar mbruster said. Thousands of gallons (liters) of brine were injected daily into the Youngstown well that opened in 2010 until its owner, Northstar Disposal Services LLC, agreed Friday to stop injecting the waste into the earth as a precaution while authorities assessed any potential links to the quakes. After the latest and largest quake Saturday at 4.0 magnitude, state officials announced their beliefs that injecting wastewater near a fault line had created enough pressure to cause seismic activity. They said four inactive wells within a five-mile (8 kilometer) radius of the Youngstown well would remain closed. But they also stressed that injection wells are dif ferent from drilling wells that employ fracking. Armbruster said Monday he expects more quakes will occur despite the shutdown of the Youngstown well. “The earthquakes will trickle on as a kind of a cascading process once you’ve caused them to occur,” he said. “This one year of pumping is a pulse that has been pushed into the ground, and it’s going to be spreading out for at least a year.” The quakes began last March with the most recent on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve each occurring within 100 meters (yards)
of the injection well. The Saturday quake in McDonald, outside of Youngstown, caused no serious injuries or property damage. Youngstown Democrat Rep. Robert Hagan on Monday renewed his call for a moratorium on fracking and well injection disposal to allow a review of safety issues. “If it’s safe, I want to do it,” he said in a telephone interview. “If it’s not, I don’t want to be part and parcel to destruction of the environment and the fake promise of jobs.” He said a moratorium “really is what we should be doing, mostly toward the injection wells, but we should be asking questions on drilling itself.” A spokesman for Gov. John Kasich, an outspoken supporter of the growing oil and natural gas industry in Ohio, said the shale industry shouldn’t be punished for a fracking byproduct. “That would be the equivalent of shutting down the auto industry because a scrap tire dump caught fire somewhere,” said Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols. He said 177 deep injection wells have operated without incident in Ohio for decades and the Youngstown well was closed within 24 hours of a study detailing how close a Christmas Eve quake was to the well. The industry-supported Ohio Oil and Gas Association said the rash of quakes was “a rare and isolated event that should not cast doubt about the effectiveness” of injection wells. Such wells “have been used safely and reliably as a disposal method for wastewater from oil and gas operations in the U.S. since the 1930s,” the association’s executive vice president, Thomas E. Stewart, said in a statement Monday. Environmentalists are critical of the hydraulic fracturing process, called fracking, which utilizes chemical-laced water and sand to blast deep into the ground and free the shale gas. Critics fear the process itself or the drilling liquid, which can contain carcinogens, could contaminate water supplies, either below ground, by spills, or in disposed wastewater. Per mits allowing hydraulic fracturing in Ohio’s portion of the Marcellus and the deeper Utica Shale formations rose from one in 2006 to at least 32 in 2011.
