Job market shrugs off fears of ‘fiscal cliff’

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. job market proved resilient in December despite fears that a budget impasse in Washington would send the economy over the fiscal cliff and trigger growthkilling tax hikes and spending cuts. Employers added 155,000 jobs last month, roughly matching the solid but unspectacular monthly pace of the past two years. The gains announced Friday weren’t enough to reduce unemployment, which remained a still-high 7.8 percent. The November

Winter weather takes its toll

Winter storms slammed into Chaves County, Thursday night, resulting in a morning commute where one vehicle slammed into another. Although Roswell was not hit as hard as other areas of the state, Roswell Police Public Information Liaison Sabrina Morales reported 17 noinjury accidents in Roswell and Chaves County by 11 a.m. Friday morning and four injury accidents on county roads, for a total of 21. Captain Dina Orozco said the New Mexico State Police had been called to investigate 14 of them. In both city and county, secondary roads were hardest hit. “We have to clear up accidents on the major highways, 70 and 285, before we can attend to those that took place on the minor roads,” Orozco said.

rate was revised up a notch from the 7.7 percent the government had originally reported. The stable pace of December hiring suggested that many employers tuned out the fracas in the nation’s capital. The threat wasn’t averted until a deal won final passage on New Year’s Day. Rather than hold back until the fiscal cliff was

resolved, many employers kept hiring, most likely in anticipation of higher customer demand. “What would hiring have been if we had not been facing the fiscal cliff in December?” said Robert Kavcic, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. “We might have seen quite a bit stronger job growth” — something closer to 200,000

a month. That’s an encouraging sign for the job market, because an even bigger budget showdown is looming: Congress must vote to raise the government’s $16.4 trillion borrowing limit by late February. If not, the government risks defaulting on its debt. Republicans will likely demand deep spending cuts as the price of raising the debt limit. Robust hiring in construction and manufacturing drove last month’s job increases. Construction firms added 30,000 jobs, the

most in 15 months. In part, that increase likely reflected hiring needed to rebuild from Superstorm Sandy. And the housing market’s gradual recovery has energized homebuilding. Manufacturers added 25,000 jobs, the most in nine months. Economists found other hopeful news in the report. Americans were given more work hours in December — an average 34.5 hours a week in December, up from 34.4 in November. And their pay outgrew inflation. Hourly See FISCAL, Page A2

This year’s legislative session starts Tuesday, Jan. 15, but Rep. Bob Wooley, R-Roswell, has already prefiled a bill to bring the cemetery at Fort Stanton “back to life.” The cemetery has existed since the 1800s, he said, but it has not been maintained. The bill would ask for funding that would provide for the upkeep and refurbishing of the grounds to make it suitable for mili-

tary veterans to be buried there. Wooley, a veteran of the Vietnam War, serves on the Military and Veterans Affairs Committee and said he was specifically asked to carry the bill. He said there is no partisan bias at all on this committee. “We’re there for the veterans,” he said. This year, he wants other members of the Legislature, on both sides of the aisle, to spend less time fighting

want protection

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Spaceport America officials are urging legislators to limit potential lawsuits from wealthy outer space tourists who take off from New Mexico, saying such a bill is crucial to the future of the project. Legal experts, however, say there is no way to know whether the so-called informed consent laws will offer any protection to spacecraft operators and suppliers in the event something goes wrong. “Since this has never happened yet, we have no precedent,” said Joanne Irene Gabrynowicz, director of the space law program at the University of Mississippi. Such measures are being pushed by states trying to compete in the fledgling commercial space travel arena, See SPACEPORT, Page A2

From childhood, through travels and in retirement, local artist Bernie Harris’ passion for woodcarving spans a lifetime Bob Wooley


Bernie Harris is a softspoken man, one whose hand-crafted wooden sculptures speak for themselves. Originally from Oklahoma, he started working with wood as a child, inheriting a fascination for manipulating wood from his father. His father, a carpenter, made things that were needed around the house. Harris grew up interested in the projects his father undertook and wanted to be

a carpenter, but did so only as a hobby. He took more lessons after coming to the Roswell Adult Center. One of the few occupations he held over the course of his lifetime was as a bus driver. He drove a bus for several years and had the opportunity to travel all over the country, gaining a

better appreciation for America along the way. His journey during his time of employment brought him to Roswell. While many of his classmates from Oklahoma were flocking to Carlsbad to work in the potash mines, he opted to come to Roswell See SPOTLIGHT, Page A2

wages rose 7 cents to $23.73 last month, a 2.1 percent increase compared with a year earlier. Over the same period, inflation rose 1.8 percent. “Perhaps (the) underlying economic performance is accelerating, and even Washington can’t screw it up,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at BTIG. One company that hired last year and would like to add more jobs in 2013 is Arteriocyte, a Clevelandbased stem-cell therapy and medical device company. But CEO Don Brown is concerned about potential cuts in government spending, which he says could erode Arteriocyte’s revenue. One such cut is a 2 percent reduction in the reim-

She reminded people to slow down during slick and frozen conditions. “Take your time. Don’t be in a rush.” Morales agreed. “Be wary of other drivers, especially on the side roads.” Each described a different set of issues during the holiday season. While driving under the influence had not been a major problem in the weeks around Christmas, a number of DUI related arrests were made at road blocks, Orozco said. RPD saw a number of DUI cases in the lead up to Christmas and beyond. The weekend preceding Christmas resulted in two arrests, after the drivers refused to take breathalyzer tests, resulting in charges of aggravated DUI, a mandatory charge where a breath-test is refused. Michael Villa, 24, was charged with his third offense of aggravated driving under the influence. A few hours later, Larry Geurin, 44, was charged with his fifth of fense of aggravated driving under the influence and open container of alcohol in motor vehicle. On Christmas Eve, Jose Palma, 32, reportedly caused a wreck at the intersection of McGaffey Street and Wyoming

“I hope we can come together and get things done this session,” he said.

Last session, a house bill allowing counties to give pay raises to their employees was passed, but was not signed by Gov. Susana Martinez. Wooley said he will re-

bursements Medicare gives doctors and hospitals. That reduction was delayed by the budget deal reached this week. If the reimbursement cut is imposed later this year, it would lower revenue for the hospitals and surgeons that buy Arteriocyte’s advanced products. “Our entire customer base is unsure about what their reimbursement landscape is going to be,” Brown said. The Obama administration’s health care reform law also imposed a 2.2 percent sales tax on medical devices. Brown estimates that will cost his company $400,000. He had hoped the tax would be eliminated as part of a fiscal cliff agreement. Arteriocyte hired 10 workers last year and now employs 76. The new hires included research scientists, two marketing specialists and a sales representative. Avenue when Palma, driving a Chevy Tahoe, plowed into a Ford pickup. The Chevy then struck a telephone pole. The passengers in the Ford suf fered from a minor injuries. Palma was also treated for injuries and was released into police custody. From Dec. 28 through 30, the Roswell Police Department arrested three on DUI charges. The first occurred when Raymond Contreras, 34, failed to stop at a stop sign. It was Contreras’ third DUI offense. He was charged with reckless driving, resisting, evading, or obstructing an officer, and two counts of failure to stop at a stop sign. On Dec. 29, George Evilsizer, 37, was arrested after he failed a breathalyzer test with a registered potential blood alcohol content of 20 percent. The following day on Dec. 30, an officer observed Jef fery Grimwood, 44, blocking an intersection. He was asleep inside the vehicle with the engine still running. Grimwood’s breathalyzer results registered as .40 percent, more than four times the legal limit of .08 percent. Oddly enough, no one was arrested for DUI on New Year’s Eve. The New Mexico State Police reported a number of weather related accidents before Christmas because of dust storms. “We had a four-car pileintroduce the bill, which has been slightly modified. In Chaves County, he said most employees haven’t had a raise in eight years. “That’s not right,” he said. “Those people do a good service for our county.” Wooley said he also will be supporting legislation toward improving the state’s education system, as far as helping more children learn to read and raising the graduation rate.


Brown hopes to make five to 10 additional hires this year, but he might be unable to do so if the Medicare cut takes effect. Despite last month’s hiring gains, Friday’s report pointed to some weakness in the job market. For example, the number of unemployed actually rose 164,000 to 12.2 million. About 192,000 people entered the work force last month, but most did not find jobs. The unemployment numbers come from a government survey of households. The number of jobs added comes from a separate survey of businesses. A broader category that includes not only the unemployed but also part-time workers who want full-time jobs and people who have given up looking for work was unchanged in December at 22.7 million. up on the day of the most recent dust stor m and had to close up State Road 2 while we cleaned up,” Orozco said. Poor visibility contributed to two accidents on Thursday, Dec. 28, along the relief route. “No people were arrested though.” She noted that alcohol was not a contributing factor to accidents over the holiday season.

She said that the worst areas in Chaves County for limited visibility due to dust were along stretches of road near Artesia and Hobbs. “Out in the county, you have wide-open spaces, no real landmarks. It makes it more difficult to get oriented. I don’t recall any accidents that were related to the fog on New Year’s Eve.” Orozco said people needed to realize that if it’s cold enough to leave ice on the windshield, then it’s cold enough for the roads to ice up. “That’s the kind of condition that leads to black ice.”

She recommends that people take into account the weather all along their route and realize that conditions may change as the day progresses or as the distance traveled increases.

He also wants more done to lower the state’s corporate tax rate so that it will be able to compete with other states. New Mexico’s corporate tax rate is more than 7 percent, he said, while other states are at 5 percent or lower. Wooley also said he wants to help protect natural resources, such as water, and the oil and gas industry, which he called “the lifeblood of our state.”

NM to release records on Martinez husband’s travel ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The New Mexico Department of Public Safety says it will release work and vacation schedules of officers who at taxpayer expense accompanied Gov. Susana Martinez’s husband on an out-of-state trip. DPS spokesman Tony Lynn said the records will be released as directed by Attorney General Gary King, the Albuquerque Journal reported Friday. Two state police officers accompanied Martinez’s husband, Chuck Franco, on the 2011 hunting trip to Louisiana. The documents had been requested under the Inspection of Public Records Act by the executive director of Independent Source PAC, a union-funded political group that has been sharply critical of the

and Spaceport America officials say that New Mexico risks losing out on a project that was intended to boost the economy in the mostly rural state. They say New Mexico needs to pass a bill to retain anchor tenant Virgin Galactic and to recruit new space business to the state. At issue is liability for passengers who pay to take spaceflights — like those planned by Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic for $200,000 a head — from the spaceport near the city of Truth or Consequences. New Mexico lawmakers several years ago passed a

where a few of his family members resided. If you ask Harris what the best part about moving to Roswell was, he’s quick to tell you, “I met my wife here.” He and his wife Jackie met at a local dance. Harris said during that time the dances were quite lively, attracting military personnel from Walker Air Force Base as well as entertainment from as far as Tennessee. The two were married on New Year’s Eve in 1954 and this year celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary.

He said he has enjoyed living in Roswell and was drawn to the Roswell Adult Center based on the many different classes offered. He decided to attend a few during his free time and was naturally drawn to the woodshop class. At these classes, he had the opportunity to work under wood sculpturer Rex Branson.

Robbery at Farmers Market proves costly Burglary

•Police responded to Far mers Market, 600 E. Second St., following an alarm call, Thursday. Officers cleared the building and met with a representative who reported nothing had been stolen. The manager received a second alar m call, but since he had just returned from the store, he ignored it. In the morning, employees discovered thousands of dollars worth of items had been

stolen, including 25 cartons of Marlboro cigarettes, a surveillance monitor, a Sharps business calculator, an Android T rio table, a Toshiba laptop and electronic cables. •Police were dispatched to the 2200 block of West Juniper Street, Thursday, where the resident returned home to find the door ajar. The victim reported that a LG 32-inch television, a Nintendo Wii system, an RCA DVD player, a Toshiba laptop computer, 40 DVDs and a Swiss Army backpack had been removed. The missing

items were valued at nearly $2,600. In addition, a DirecTV satellite receiver, which had been left on the porch following delivery, was stolen. In a separate report, an officer located the receiver in a backpack near the crime scene. The items were booked into evidence where the officer who was investigating the burglary recognized it as one taken from the porch.

Martinez administration. The department previously refused to release the records, saying protection of the governor and her family allowed the records to be withheld. However, King said a state Supreme Court in June no longer allows records to be withheld when the government decides disclosure isn’t in the public interest. The June ruling stemmed from a request by the Republican Party for public records from the administration of former Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democrat. “There was a major change in open government law this summer, and so while this exemption may have been allowed in the spring, that’s no longer the case,” said Gwyneth Doland,

executive director of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government. Doland said records related to the state police officers’ work must now be made public because there is no specific exemption related to the governor’s security detail. Corwin originally requested the records in April, after news reports that officers traveled with Franco. While Franco paid his own trip expenses, the officers’ travel costs, including expenses related to the car the three drove, were taxpayer-funded. Martinez’s office has said it is standard practice for a state-funded security detail to accompany the governor or her family on out-ofstate travel for both state business and personal matters.

bill that exempts Virgin Galactic from being sued by passengers in the event of an accident provided they have been informed of the risks. Officials have refused, however, to follow a handful of other states in expanding that exemption to suppliers. Spaceport America Executive Director Christine Anderson has blamed New Mexico’s refusal during the last two legislative sessions to expand the law as the reason the spaceport has been passed over by companies in favor of states such as Texas and Florida. Virgin Galactic, meanwhile, has hinted it will leave New Mexico if an expansion isn’t passed this year. “I understand the impetus to try to match other states, but right now there

is no guarantee it’s enforceable,” said Guigi Carminati with the Weil Law Firm in Houston. “That really is the bottom line.” She and Gabrynowicz said the only comparable laws cover adventure sports or amusement parks — and their effectiveness varies. If someone gets hurt on a roller coaster, for example, Gabrynowicz said, the operator generally is not exempt from liability just because a posted sign says passengers ride at their own risk. Those “don’t hold up” in court, she said. She added that while there is “lot of case law regarding those kinds of activities. There is none yet for state law for space launches.”

Branson was one of the main artists who worked on the “World’s Oldest Man,” which stands outside of the Center. While Harris didn’t actually help carve the statue, he played a part in it coming to be. He said he oversaw the clearing of the space where the statue now stands and initially got Branson on board to do the project. Once the project was completed, Harris said he felt a sense of relief and pride. Harris said his initial reaction was, “Hooray! ... It was quite a task to get it put together and everything, but I was real proud of it.” The carving would be featured in Wood Carving Illustrated, a magazine dedicated to those with a passion for woodcarving and

learning more about the craft. During the mid-1990s, Harris would teach woodcarving classes during the day and at night, but has since eased out of his role as teacher. He said he teaches as needed, but is content in being more of an assistant and lending a helping hand on a regular basis. Harris’ work can still be seen in the woodshop area of the Center. Amongst his 50 or so carvings are Native American-style pieces and a giant wooden framed mirror. He credits Branson himself as the inspiration for many of the carvings. He took several classes under the tutelage of Branson and would take the lessons he taught and apply them to his artwork.

GOP leader eyes ‘Smokey Congress approves $9.7 billion in Sandy flood aid Bear’ balloon funding cut

AP Photo

Crews work to replace the Superstorm Sandy-destroyed boardwalk in Seaside Heights, N.J., Thursday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The new Congress on Friday rushed out $9.7 billion to help pay flood insurance claims to 115,000 people and businesses afflicted by Superstorm Sandy, two days after New Jersey’s governor and other Northeast Republicans upbraided Speaker John Boehner for killing a broader package for state and local governments in the storm’s path. The bill replenishes the National Flood Insurance Program that was due to run out of money next week with the pending Sandy-related claims as well as 5,000 unresolved claims from other floods. “It’s a small down payment on the larger aid we need,” said Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The legislation cleared the Senate by a voice vote following passage by the House, 354-67.



The government already has spent about $2 billion on the emergency response to the late October storm, one of the worst ever in the Northeast. It slammed the Atlantic coastline from North Carolina to Maine, with the worst damage occurring in New York City and its suburbs, New Jersey and Connecticut. The storm is blamed for 140 deaths. Boehner has promised a vote Jan. 15 on a broader, $51 billion package of aid, which would bring the total to the more than $60 billion requested by President Barack Obama. Senate leaders have promised a vote the following week. The Senate passed a $60.4 billion bill a week ago but House Republicans, complaining that it was laden with pork projects unrelated to the storm, cut it by more than

half. Boehner canceled a New Year’s Day vote on it after nearly two-thirds of House Republicans voted against the “fiscal cliff” package of tax and spending increases. The White House praised Friday’s vote helping homeowners, renters and businesses, and urged Congress to act quickly on the remainder of Obama’s request. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a joint statement also imploring Congress to move hastily on the rest of the money. “We are trusting Congress to act accordingly on January 15th,” they said. It was a more temperate response than was heard earlier in the week, when a livid Christie blistered House Republicans and Boehner himself for holding up the aid and other GOP figures from the region, as well as Democrats, cried “betrayal.” All of the “no” votes in the House were cast by Republicans, who said other government programs should have been cut to pay for the measure. As with past natural disasters, the Sandy aid proposals do not provide for offsetting spending cuts, meaning the aid comes at the cost of higher deficits. The bill gives more authority to the National Flood Insurance Program to borrow money from the U.S. T reasury to pay claims. Premiums average about $625 per year and residential claims under the program average nearly $30,000.

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A well-known hot air balloon in the likeness of a New Mexico-born fire prevention icon is now at a center of a tug-of-war over federal spending. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Thursday during the Senate’s opening day that the Smokey Bear balloon was a waste of taxpayer dol la rs, es pec ial ly at a time when the Republicans are looking to tackle the federal deficit. “If we can’t stop spending taxpayer dollars on robo-squirrels, and dancing robot DJ’s or hot air balloon rides for Smokey the Bear, then there’s no hope at all,” said the Senate’s top Republican. “If we can’t fix the easy stuff ... how are we ever going to get at the hard stuff?” The Albuquerque-based balloon has long been a regular at the city’s International Balloon Fiesta an d has f lo wn in t er n ationally.

Tourists come to state while residents leave A4 Saturday, January 5, 2013

People find New Mexico an appealing place to visit if reminded by advertising emphasizing people and land — our Enchantment. However, some people find New Mexico, with its stagnant to declining economy (excepting the southeast), an unappealing place to live. The parallel elements emerged on consecutive days just before Christmas. “Quality of life” links the elements. A devil of differing definition hides in the link. The conclusion about visitor appeal comes from a Tourism Department study of a campaign featuring the “New Mexico True” theme developed by Vendor Inc., the department’s Austin-based advertising firm. Vendor’s vindication came with the report that $1.2 million spent in three markets on the “New Mexico True” campaign generated 264,000 more trips here, $35.1 million in





visitor spending and $3.6 million in taxes. Not that I expect the parochial complainers about Vendor to admit it, but maybe the Texans weren’t so bad after all. Some Vendor principals did have New Mexico connections. Complainers included Jon Hendry, a film union (IATSE Local 480) official, and Gene Grant, an Albuquerque media figure. For the advocates and activists, admitting fallibility is not allowed. A different concept of quality of life offers insight to the new state population figures from the U.S.

Roswell Daily Record

Census Bureau. Our population was 2,085,538 as of July 1, 2012. During the year from July 1, 2011, to July 1, 2012, a net of 7,577 people moved elsewhere in the United States. (The figure comes from subtracting the number leaving from those coming.) Only 2,328 (again a net figure) moved here from outside the United States. Combine the two and we get what the Census geeks call “net negative migration” of 5,229 for the year. We have Harding County on a statewide scale. While a few international immigrants bring Ph.D. degrees to the national laboratories, my guess is that nearly all are younger with modest education. They seek the opportunity of America from the lower base of their home country, likely Mexico. The departing, again guessing, seek the opportunity of America from the lower base of New Mexi-

co. These people probably are older, moving into careers, and with children. Some are retirees, of course. I know one man who moved to Fort Worth. The quality-of-life definition comes from Forbes ranks the Best States for Business and Careers using its Scorecard for Business Climates. The 2012 report was posted Dec. 12. “New Mexico took the biggest tumble, down 11 spots to No. 43 as its current economic climate and growth prospects declined relative to the rest of the country from last year,” Forbes said. The Scorecard groups 35 data points into six categories. For only one category are we in the top half. It is growth prospects, oddly enough, where we are 22nd. For four categories we average a mediocre 31st place — labor supply, business costs, economic climate and regulatory environment. The quality-of-life

category where we are 49th pulls us into the lower 10. For Forbes, quality means poverty and crime rates, cost of living and health. Enchantment factors get a nod with inclusion of culture and recreation opportunities and weather. Quality of life means education, which Forbes considers by using scores published by the federal Department of Education. These factors are the ones people consider when evaluating life each day. Sunsets are cool, but what about crime and the opportunity for my kid to get a decent education. For the 2011-2012 census year, people voted with their feet and left. Meanwhile we raised the stakes with 28,306 new babies during the 2011-12 year. The babies meant our population grew, but in three years or so, we will have to educate them. © New Mexico News Services 2013

World Opinion U.S. government in denial

The fiscal cliff was concocted by President Barack Obama and Congress as a way of holding a gun to their own heads. The fixing of a deadline for the automatic imposition of ferocious tax rises and deep spending cuts was supposed to concentrate the minds of America’s political leaders and force them into taking the difficult decisions required to start reeling in the country’s truly terrifying levels of public debt. The stratagem has failed. There has been no “grand bargain” that addresses the root causes of the ballooning deficit — rocketing social security entitlements funded by a toonarrow tax base — just a sticking-plaster settlement aimed at buying more time. Given that the United States has a $16 trillion burden of debt and an annual budget deficit of $1.1 trillion, this package does not even begin to address the fiscal crisis. Meanwhile, a new two-month deadline has been set for hammering out an agreement on spending cuts. Sounds familiar? We have been here many times already with the eurozone sovereign debt crisis when deadlines became infinitely elastic as politicians refused to take painful but necessary decisions and instead kept lobbing money at the problem. As the powerhouse of the world economy, America cannot continue to live in denial and expect to maintain its dominant role. Its current debt trajectory is leading the country to ruination. Many economists believe that such a crippling level of public debt can destroy any prospect of economic growth. The impact on the global economy of such a slowdown would be disastrous.

President Peres’ duty

President Shimon Peres is under fire, once again, for speaking his mind. During an annual conference of Israel’s ambassadors at the President’s Residence, Peres sounded off on an issue close to his heart: peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Referring to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as a “partner for peace,” Peres declared that there was no alternative to the two-state solution. In response, the Likud Beytenu party issued a statement saying, “It’s very unfortunate that the president chose to express a personal political view that is detached from public opinion when it comes to Abbas, who refuses to make peace.” This is not the first time Peres has intervened on controversial political matters, matters that have normally been avoided in the past by the men who have served as president. Still, while the president’s duties are outlined in the 1964 Basic Law: The President of the State, there is nothing in the law that would prohibit the office-holder weighing in on issues he deem to be pressing or important. And the president is appointed by the Knesset — a democratically elected body — which makes the choice of president a reflection of the will of the people. Those who voted for him knew Peres’ political positions. Attacks on a president for making controversial comments are usually motivated by political considerations. Rarely are they the result of a principled position on the limits of a president’s powers and functions, though they are sometimes disguised as such. Whether we agree or not, we should be lenient with a president’s occasional political comment, particularly when made by a man of Peres’ stature. The only prime minister to serve as president, Peres has decades of political experience under his belt. If in bringing that experience to bear on current events, he is of the opinion that a diplomatic opportunity is being missed or a potentially damaging policy mistake is being made, he not only has the right to voice his opinion, he has an obligation to do so.

Congress is no place for civilized people Let us set aside this first weekend of 2013 to concentrate on the country’s most pressing issue. Does Notre Dame have a prayer of beating the spread against Alabama in Monday night’s national football championship? While we the jury ponders that weighty matter, it might be appropriate to remind ourselves the New Mexico Supreme Court is pondering issues surrounding a district court ruling that an Internet website hooking up girls with guys for money is not a house of prostitution.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a 77-year-old man. I’ve read about the effects of growth hormone, and they sound great. Is there a downside? DEAR READER: I’ve also seen the many “anti-aging” claims associated with growth hor mone, and I understand their appeal. Like most people, I want to live a long time, but I don’t want to grow old. But does growth hormone (GH) work? And is it safe? Those are both complicated questions to answer, but here goes. GH is a protein produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. It gets its name from the fact that it is important in stimulating

The mean-spirited, classless comic hosts the New Year’s Eve party with Anderson Cooper, tarnishing his journalistic credentials and insulting the sensitivity of all but those who think it’s really fun to leave a pile of crap in an elevator. Since there’s not much we can do about football championships or high court decisions or CNN stupidity, maybe we should use this time to reflect — yes, just one more time — on the year just passed and ask ourselves, did New Mexicans do anything

However, it does appear to have some beneficial effects. GH promotes an increase in muscle mass and a decrease in body fat. As men age, GH levels fall. During the same time span, muscle mass declines and body fat increases. And so (the theory goes), the way to arrest these effects of aging is to inject GH. To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of GH in healthy older people, a team of researchers reviewed 31 high-quality studies. Together, these studies evaluated 220 people who received GH and

Smith did not take defeat lightly. He slashed the tires on Janice ArnoldJones’ Ford Expedition and her husband’s Ford F-150. I am not saying that, the Albuquerque cops are saying that. Here’s the story. Arnold-Jones said she has spent thousands of dollars to replace and repair 19 vandalized tires so finally, on Dec. 19, set up a surveillance video.

227 people who did not. Two-thirds of the subjects were men and their average age was 69. The dosage of GH varied, as did the duration of therapy. As compared to the subjects who did not get GH, the treated individuals gained an average of 4.6 pounds of lean body mass and shed a similar amount of body fat. There was a slight drop in total cholesterol levels, but no significant changes in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, HDL (“good”) cholesterol, triglycerides, aerobic capacity, bone density, or fasting blood sugar and insulin levels. So far, so good. Now comes the bad news. People who used GH experienced a high rate of side effects. These included fluid retention, joint pain, breast enlargement and carpal tunnel syndrome. A bigger concern is cancer. In labora-

The complaint says Smith stabbed eight tires and left at 3:34 a.m. This is what Washington needs. If Michelle Lujan Grisham would slash Steve Pearce’s tires, and Steve Pearce would slash Martin Heinrich’s tires, and Martin Heinrich would slash John Boehner’s tires, and John Boehner would slash Nancy Pelosi’s tires, and Nancy Pelosi would slash Eric Cantor’s tires, and Eric Cantor would slash Harry Reid’s tires, pretty soon Washington, D.C., would be one big flat and Congress would feel like it had been screwed. Then it might start to understand how the rest of the country feels. Go Irish. (Ned Cantwell — — drives a blue 2009 Hyundai. Maybe). tory studies, GH promotes the multiplication of cancer cells. Some epidemiological studies have found that people with naturally high levels of GH had higher rates of cancer. These studies by no means prove that taking GH supplements would raise a person’s risk of cancer, but it’s plausible that they might. So I don’t recommend taking GH supplements to help fight the ravages of time, although new evidence could cause me to change my mind. But that doesn’t mean you have to sit back and let Father T ime peck away at you. Instead, use the time-tested combination of diet and exercise. You’ll reduce your risk of many chronic illnesses and — it’s true — slow the ticking of the clock. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

Doing What You Don’t Want To!

Jonah 1:1-3 “The Word of the Lord came to Jonah, the son of Amittai saying, Arise, go to Ninevah the great city, and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me. But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish form the presence of the Lord…”. NASB

So take a moment and think of a time when God told you to do something that you just did not want to do. Maybe you are in that position right now and you find yourself trying to flee from God and the task He demands of you? Instead of being afraid of the Word of God coming to us, we should be excited that God has spoke to us and chosen us for the task. I think what scares us the most when God calls us to something is failure, defeat and discouragement. We see the task, and sometimes the wickedness we have to confront, and it scares us. A wiser man than I told me once, “don’t let discouragement defeat you, and don’t let defeat discourage you”. Very well put I think. I pray that in 2013 we can learn to obey God the first time and avoid the fishy moments, 2, we won’t be distracted by intimidations’, and finally, it’s better to stay in the presence of God, than anywhere else, no matter how bad it gets.

‘McDreamy’ says he beat Starbucks for coffee chain

SEATTLE (AP) — “Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey may be the real “McSteamy.” The actor, who was dubbed “McDreamy” as a star of the hospital drama while his costar was called “McSteamy,” may soon be serving hot, steaming cups of Joe. Dempsey won a bankruptcy auction to buy Tully’s Coffee, a small coffee chain based in Seattle. Among those he beat out is Tully’s much bigger Seattle neighbor, Starbucks Corp., which is known for its ubiquitous white cups with a circular green mermaid logo. Dempsey, whose company Global Baristas LLC plans to keep the Tully’s name, declared victory on the social media site Twitter: “We met the green monster, looked her in the eye, and...SHE BLINKED! We got it! Thank you Seattle! The win for Dempsey deals a rare setback for Starbucks on its home turf. Starbucks has long been both praised for bringing “coffeehouse culture” to the U.S. and criticized for crushing smaller chains. The coffee giant,

which had planned to convert the Tully’s cafes to its own brand, last month announced plans to expand its global footprint to 20,000 cafes over the next two years, up from the current 18,000. Dempsey said in an interview on Friday that as the underdog in Seattle, Tully’s will need to find its identity. “It’s a much smaller chain that has a lot of potential that hasn’t been given the proper care,” he said. But in a statement shortly after the auction on Thursday, Starbucks insinuated that Dempsey shouldn’t celebrate just yet. Starbucks, which wanted to convert the Tully’s cafes to its own brand, said that a final determination on the winning bid won’t be made until a court hearing on Jan. 11. Starbucks said it’s in a “back-up” position” to buy 25 of the 47 Tully’s cafes, with another undisclosed bidder making an offer for the remainder. The combined bids of Starbucks and the undisclosed bidder come to $10.6 million, above the $9.2 million Dempsey’s company

is offering to pay through his company, which was formed in order to purchase Tully’s. The other investors in Global Baristas aren’t being disclosed. Tully’s Coffee, which is known for serving Joe with a milder taste than Starbucks brand, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in October, citing lease obligations and underperforming stores. Tully’s wholesale business, which includes Tully’s Coffee in bags and single serve K-cup packs that are sold in supermarkets and other stores, is owned separately by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. TC Global Inc., the parent company of Tully’s, said in a release Friday that it was “encouraged and excited” about Dempsey’s commitment to the chain. Tully’s President and CEO Scott Pearson called the deal a “great match” and that the goal is to make sure creditors get paid and to keep as many people employed as possible. Dempsey said he planned to be very involved in the running of the company, adding that the immediate challenges were to

address bookkeeping issues, staff morale and sprucing up the coffee shops. Once the business is stabilized, Dempsey said the long-term goal would be to take the chain national. “We can pull this off. We just have to take steps that are slow and smart,” he said. “I’m going to get behind the counter. I’m going to serve coffee ... I’m going to give the company a boost of energy.” Although Dempsey lives in Los Angeles, he plans to spend more time in Seattle, the city where “Grey’s Anatomy” is set in. Dempsey said he believed there is room in the city for Tully’s and the much larger Starbucks; he noted there might be people who are rooting for the underdog. “In a society where there are so many big corporations that swallow the little guy, we thought, let’s not let this happen to this company,” he said. Dempsey made an appearance Friday morning at a Tully’s near Pike Place Market, shaking hands with workers and greeting customers before visiting other stores.

Roswell boys down St. Pius X Section

Roswell Daily Record


Roswell navigated through the first 10 games of its season undefeated without ever really being tested.


St. Pius X tried to bring a stiff test on Friday, but like Roswell’s previous 10 games, the Coyotes came out on top by double digits. The Coyotes used a steady barrage of Cesar Nava, Alex Olesinski and Anthony Olguin in the third quarter to pull away from the Sar-

TATUM — Hagerman led 3824 at the half and never looked back on its way to a 68-39 win over Tatum on Friday. The Bobcats put the game out of reach by winning the third quarter 16-6. Hagerman coach Anthony Mestas said that he was pleased with his team’s effort. “Overall, it was a good game. I was pleased with the boys’ effort,” he said. “Keeping anyone under 40 points is a good defensive stand. I was happy and pleased with the effort.” Bryan Barela and Alejandro Ramos led the Bobcats with 13 points each while Jose Bejarano poured in 12 points to go along with his 10 rebounds. Edgar Soto added 10 points for Hagerman.

tans for a 63-49 win. “It’s good for us to get challenged. (St. Pius) is a good ballclub,” said Roswell coach Britt Cooper. “We need to play someone like them. They are ranked No. 3 in the state for good reason. They are solid. They’re a team that will be in the state tournament. “They’re a team that we could see again in the semifinals or possibly the finals. They’re a quality ballclub. They’re well-coached.”

Pius stayed within striking distance throughout the first half and closed to within three, 31-28, as the half closed. Roswell put the game out of reach in the third quarter. Nava scored the team’s first five points of the quarter and Roswell was on its way. Olesinski poured in seven during the quarter, Olguin

Roswell girls win 7th straight 49-42 Roswell’s Matthew Sedillo (5) rises for a shot while St. Pius X’s Kyle Hensley defends during their game, Friday.


If the game between the Roswell girls basketball team and St. Pius X was to be summed up in five words or less, it would be

described as “A Tale of Two Halves.” In the first half, Roswell struggled with the Sartan full-court press, which helped force 17 first-half Coyote turnovers. In the second half, the Coyotes

See RHS, Page B2

used the press to their advantage en route to a 4942 win over visiting St. Pius on Friday night. Roswell led twice in the first half — 2-0 and 4-2 — before the Sartans’ press got into full swing.


TATUM — Hagerman fell behind 13-8 after the first quarter and couldn’t recover in a 5524 loss to Tatum on Friday. Tatum led 28-14 at the half and grew its lead to 42-21 heading into the final quarter.

A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Browns are nearing a deal with Oregon’s offensive mastermind to be their next coach. The Browns interviewed Kelly on Friday and the Ducks coach was supposed to meet with Philadelphia in Arizona. However, a person familiar with the interviews says the Eagles are “heading in another direction” because Kelly is nearing a deal with Cleveland. That person, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team isn’t discussing its negotiations publicly, said the Eagles planned to interview several other candidates regardless of any conversations with Kelly. The Eagles were granted permission Friday to interview Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel finds running room against Oklahoma on his way to the end zone during the Cotton Bowl, Friday.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Johnny Manziel tiptoed the sideline for a 23-yard touchdown on Texas A&M’s first drive of the game. The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback known as Johnny Football and the 10th-ranked Aggies were just getting warmed up in the Cotton Bowl. There were plenty more highlights after that nifty run. In his first game since becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman, Manziel set a Cotton Bowl-record with 516 total yards and accounted for four TDs as the Aggies capped their first SEC season with a 41-13 win over 12th-ranked Oklahoma on Friday night. With first-year coach Kevin Sumlin and their young star quarterback, the Aggies (11-2) fit right in with the SEC after leaving the Big 12. They broke the SEC record with their 7.261 total yards this season (the first over 7,000 after 633 in CowSee COTTON, Page B2

Texans, Bengals meet in wild-card game again

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans were looking forward to enjoying a bye this week before beginning their work in the playoffs as the AFC’s top seed. Instead, a terrible month in which they lost three of four games dropped the Texans to the third seed. It has See AGAIN, Page B2

them in the exact same spot as a year ago, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in a wild-card playoff game Saturday. The Texans wasted little time this week lamenting their missed opportunities, though, instead focusing on their next task. “Would we like to be in a different situation? Yeah, but at the same time, it’s the playoffs. It’s the start of the playoffs. Everything you’ve done up to this point, it doesn’t really matter,” Houston’s Andre Johnson said. “It only matters what you do now ... we just have to take advantage of the opportunity we have now.” They’ll face a Cincinnati team that enters Saturday having won three in a row and seven of its last eight games. The Bengals are in the playoffs for consecutive seasons for the first time since 1981-82. Their last playoff win came Jan. 6, 1991, against the Oilers, the team the Texans replaced in Houston. Cincinnati of fensive tackle


Andrew Whitworth said he isn’t worried about the more than 20year streak of playoff futility. He wants to focus on the improvement this young team has made. “Last year, we did what it took to get into the playoffs when a lot of people predicted us to be 016,” Whitworth said. “This year, we got back into the playof fs when a lot of people didn’t think we could. We’re here. The next step is winning a playoff game. Hopefully, we can let that be a chip on our shoulder.” Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked four times and threw three interceptions in last year’s 31-10 postseason loss to the Texans. Houston defensive end J.J. Watt returned one of those interceptions 29 yards for a touchdown that gave the Texans a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Dalton, who grew up in suburban Houston, believes he’s grown since that game and lear ned from the mistakes he made. “I definitely feel like I’m a better quarterback this year,” he said. “I’ve got more control of the offense. There’s a lot more stuff that I’m doing at the line of

Despite six second-quarter turnovers, Roswell was able to cut the lead to 21-16 and, in the second half, the Coyotes took advantage of the St. Pius press. The Sartans struck first in the second half with a runner from Natalie Zamora, but Roswell answered on the ensuing possession with a trey from Vicki Meraz that cut the lead to four. After a defensive stop, Roswell got an easy basket when the Sartan press left Gali Sanchez wide open underneath for an easy deuce that made it a two-point game.

scrimmage, and making checks and doing different things this year than I was doing last year. But that’s helped me become a better player.” Another player who has certainly improved in Year 2 is Watt. The defensive end led the NFL with 20 1/2 sacks this season, has 107 tackles, including 39 for losses, 16 passes defended and has forced four fumbles. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis got creative this week when asked how he planned to stop Watt. “I wrote a letter to the commissioner to petition for 13,” Lewis joked. “I figure if we put a guy on each side of him and a guy in front of him, we’ve got a good opportunity.” Then Lewis got serious. “He’s been an incredible player and he’s fun to watch if you’re not preparing to play the Texans,” Lewis said. “He’s a great model for young players to look at and be like. He really is something.” Houston defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who has been coaching in the NFL since 1976, couldn’t say enough about Watt’s

The Coyotes got two more layups on their next two possessions with quick passes up the court and, although St. Pius led 30-25 with 3:55 left, it was clear Roswell was in control. Coyote coach Joe Carpenter said that he didn’t change much at halftime. “(We said) not to over dribble and keep your head up,” he said. “They were going to trap when the dribble starts and they were ready to rotate. They did a good job of rotating that first half and getting us to turn it over. Then we started looking up the floor more and that is when we got a few easy ones and they had to call it off.” When they called it off, it was Roswell’s turn to put the heat on. Trailing 30-25, the Coyotes closed the quarter on an 11-0

Roswell Daily Record performance this season. “This is the best defensive line play of anybody since I’ve been in football,” Phillips said. “He is by far the best defensive player. He should obviously be the defensive player of the year in the league.” The AFC South champion Texans are also in the playoffs for the second straight year, the only two times in franchise history. Houston lost to the Ravens in the second round after beating the Bengals last January. The Texans believe that experience will help them this time. “I feel like we’ve come a long ways,” Watt said. “Obviously, this isn’t new to us. This is something we’ve been through before. We’re excited. We can’t wait. We had a taste of the playoffs last year and we’re really excited to get back in it this year and to go to work.” Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates was behind center last year after injuries knocked out Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart. Now, Schaub, a nine-year veteran, will get his first postseason start. He’s looking to bounce back from a tough month in which he threw three interceptions with just one touchdown pass. He’ll

Roswell took the lead for good with a runner from Kayleen Willard with 1:17 left in the third and the lead was pushed to four with a pair of freebies from Victoria Metcalf on the next Roswell possession. Willard closed out the quarter with a runner in the lane that made it a 36-30 game heading into the final quarter.

boys Stadium). They also averaged more than 40 points a game. And they capped their debut season with an overwhelming victory in the only postseason game matching teams from those power conferences. It is the Aggies’ first 11-win season since 1998, when they won their only Big 12 title. The chants of “S-E-C!, S-E-C!” began after Manziel’s 33-yard TD pass to Ryan Swope with 4 minutes left in the third quarter for a 34-13 lead. They got louder and longer after that. Texas A&M led by only a point at halftime, but scored on its first three drives of the second half — on drives of 91 and 89 yards before Swope’s score on a fourth-and-5 play. Oklahoma (10-3), which like the Aggies entered the game with a five-game winning streak, went three-and-out on its first three drives after halftime. SEC teams have won the last five Cotton Bowls, all against Big 12 teams, and nine out of 10. That included Texas A&M’s loss to LSU only two years ago. Manziel set an FBS bowl record with his 229 yards rushing on 17 carries, and completed 22 of 34 passes for 287 yards. Oklahoma, led by quarterback Landry


try to do it with two big weapons in Johnson and Arian Foster. Johnson led the AFC with a career-high 1,598 yards receiving, and Foster finished second in the AFC in rushing with 1,424 yards. “They have three or four guys who have been playmakers in this league for a while,” Bengals cornerback Leon Hall said of the Texans. “It starts with Foster. Obviously, they have Johnson outside. It starts with knowing that we have to stop the run. If you don’t stop the run, you’re on your heels for the rest of the game.” Schaub and Houston’s offensive line will have their hands full with a defense that boasts two solid pass-rushers in tackle Geno Atkins and end Michael Johnson. The pair has combined for 24 sacks this season, and the Texans have given up three or more sacks in each of the last three games. “Pressure and those types of things, we have our work cut out for us,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “We’re going to have to play better than we have the past few weeks.”

Jones in his 50th career start, had only 312 total yards as a team. Jones completed 35 of 48 passes for 278 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He won 39 games and three bowls for the Sooners, in a career that started on the same field in the 2009 season opener when he replaced injured Heisman winner Sam Bradford in the first college game played at Cowboys Stadium. Already with a 24-yard gain on an earlier third down, the Aggies had third-and9 on their opening drive when Manziel rolled to his left and took off. When he juked around a defender and got near the sideline, he tiptoed to stay in bounds and punctuated his score with a high-step over the pylon for a quick lead. Officials reviewed the touchdown play, but it was clear by the replay shown on the huge video screen above the Cowboys Stadium field that Manziel stayed in bounds. Manziel added a 5-yard TD run on a bootleg play in the second quarter, and capped the scoring with a 34-yard pass to Uzoma Nwachukwu with 9 minutes left in the game. The first TD run was Manziel’s schoolrecord 20th of the season. He became only the fourth FBS quarterback with 20 TDs rushing and 20 passing in the same season.

DEAR ABBY: I’m the youngest of three children and I’ll be graduating from high school in the spring. My parents always seemed happy with each other. They were obviously in love, and they told my brothers and me they would never get divorced. Although they had arguments, they always made up, and it never seemed to be serious. For the last few months, my dad has been acting weird. He spends a lot of time talking to and texting “a friend” on the phone. The problem is, although the friend has a male name (“George”) in his contacts, the person has a

DEAR BLINDSIDED: I agree that you can’t keep quiet about this. What you saw was, of course, shocking — and the person you should talk to about it is your father. Sometimes when people are going through a really tough time, they do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do. Your mother may — or may not — have an inkling that something is going on.


Ask your father if the text means he plans to leave the family. Then give him a deadline to come clean with your mother, and let him know that if he doesn’t, you will. You have my sympathy.


DEAR ABBY: My husband was sober for 14 years. He started drinking again two years ago. He’s on probation and drinking is a clear violation of his probation. His liver enzymes are elevated, and I can’t seem to find the right words to get his attention. I have thought about contacting his probation officer, but then he will be incarcerated. Abby, I am watching the man I love drink himself to death and I’m afraid for him. Should I tell his probation officer or just watch him self-destruct? SCARED AND CONFUSED IN MICHIGAN DEAR SCARED: The reason you can’t get your husband’s attention is because of the alcohol. He isn’t thinking straight. As I am sure you realize,

one of the hallmarks of addiction is denial. No one helps an alcoholic by enabling the person to continue drinking, and your husband definitely needs help. While it may not be easy, talk to the probation officer so your husband can be incarcerated, dry out and become rational again. I know it is a painful choice, but watching him die of liver disease would be worse.

It is helpful to have one plan that works in any situation, but families are different and plans will be different. Do you want them to stop and stay right where they are until you come back? Do you want them to find an adult, preferably one in uniform? They need to know that it’s OK to ask for help, or you can designate a meet-up place. Whatever the plan is, practice, rehearse and stick to it. Nina in Utah

Dear Heloise: In the news reports after every disaster, we see people clutching pets in their arms. I cringe to think about the frightened animals getting away. Every pet owner should get a nylon-web collar or harness and use a permanent marker to write his or her phone number on it. Tags are great, but can be pulled off. Practicing wearing the collar is important, too, for pets not used to a restraint. Keep this and a leash in your “emergency kit,” and you will have a clean collar with clear information on it, ready to use. Don’t forget to have a recent pet picture, along with vaccination records, in a plastic baggie. Diana Jones, Seguin, Texas P.S. Two matching laundry baskets tied together with nylon cord works as an emergency pet kennel.

I don’t need to remove the sliders to use the mixer; it is very stable when running and doesn’t vibrate or move around.

Chevrolet Sonic tells story of Detroit’s improbable comeback

AP Photo

Chevrolet Sonics move down the line at the General Motors Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Mich, April 25.

DETROIT (AP) — When the word reached the Orion Assembly Plant, it spread along the serpentine assembly line like news of a death or natural disaster: General Motors, the biggest automaker in the world, had filed for bankruptcy protection. On that grim day in 2009, Chevrolet and Pontiac sedans kept rolling down the line. And 1,700 worried workers stayed at their stations even as GM announced it would close the plant in a desperate bid to survive. “The unknown was the scariest part,” recalled Gerald Lang, who had worked at Orion for two years installing dashboards and doors. “We really had no clue what was going to happen.”

There was something else that the workers didn’t know: They were witnessing the opening act of one of the greatest recovery stories in American business. Nearly four years later, Chevrolets are still moving down the assembly line under the plant’s 82-acre roof. Lang and his co-workers now build the Sonic, the best-selling subcompact car in the nation. It’s a vehicle no one thought could be made profitably in the U.S., by a company that few people thought would last. But GM has not only survived, it has earned $16 billion in profits in the past three years. And the industry is on track to make this year its best year since 2007. Detroit’s improbable

comeback is the work of many: President George W. Bush, who authorized the first bailout loans; President Barack Obama, who made more loans; workers who took lower wages and focused more on quality to compete with foreign rivals; and executives and designers who developed better cars amid the financial maelstrom happening around them. To be sure, there were victims: shareholders, autoparts makers and other suppliers who went out of business, as well as taxpayers who will never get all their money back. But there is no denying that American carmakers have made a remarkable recovery. Nearly 790,000 people now have jobs building cars, trucks and parts, up 27 percent from the dark days of 2009. The story of the Sonic shows how the industry, along with a community in a downtrodden state, got there. Detroit has seen many booms and busts in a century of auto making. There were 41 car companies in the city in 1913. Almost all failed or were consolidated into the Big Three. Chrysler nearly went bankrupt in 1980 before being rescued by the government. Sales ebb and flow with the economy, gas prices and even the weather. But industry experts say things have changed. The reforms Detroit undertook

Should lottery winners’ names be kept secret?

make it less prone to financial disaster. Car companies have closed plants, laid off workers and sold or closed entire brands. GM now has 12 U.S. assembly plants and 101,000 employees in North America. A decade ago, it had 22 plants and 202,000 employees.

PHOENIX (AP) — Lawmakers in Michigan and New Jersey recently have proposed bills to allow anonymity to lottery winners, who are prone to falling victim to scams, shady businesses, greedy distant family members and violent criminals looking to shake them down. Lotteries object, arguing that publicizing the winners’ names drives sales and that having their names released ensures that people know there isn’t something fishy afoot, like a game rigged so a lottery insider wins. When players see that an actual person won, “it has a much greater impact than when they might read that the lottery paid a big prize to an anonymous player,” said Andi Brancato, director of public relations for the Michigan state lottery. Most states require the names of lottery winners be disclosed, albeit in different ways. Arizona and other states allow winners not to appear in public, but their names can be obtained through public records laws. Jeff Hatch-Miller, executive director of the Arizona Lottery, said he understands winners’ desire for privacy, but he argues they are essentially entering into a large contract with the government that is public. Others argue that appearing at a news conference helps defuse media interest because the winner is available to answer questions that satisfy the media’s interest in telling their stories. In Michigan, Republican state Sen. Tory Rocca pushed a lottery bill that allows winners to remain anonymous. It didn’t pass, but in arguing for it, he cited cases where lottery winners were shot and killed because of their newfound wealth. A Florida woman was convicted last month of firstdegree murder after she befriended a man who won a $30 million jackpot in 2006. Prosecutors said she took control of his assets, killed him, buried him in her yard and poured a concrete slab above the grave. An effort in New Jersey by Democratic Sen. Jim Whelan took a middle ground between public release and privacy, calling for a one-year delay in releasing winners’ names. It also didn’t make it out of the Legislature last year, but he said he’ll keep pressing to get it passed. Whelan said a one-year delay would give winners a chance to adjust while still keeping the public disclosure lotteries say they need. However, Whelan said he doesn’t really buy the agencies’ arguments for public disclosure. Of 44 states participating in Powerball and 33 in Mega-Millions, only Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota and Ohio allow blanket anonymity, said Chuck Strutt, executive director of the MultiState Lottery Association, which oversees the games. Former Missouri child services worker Sandra Hayes shared a $224 million Powerball jackpot with a dozen co-workers in 2006 and said she understands the push for anonymity. Hayes said she received many requests for money or to make investments, both at work (she kept her job another month) and at home, where she’d find people waiting on her porch. Her lump sum payout after taxes was more than $6 million.

“You literally can’t do as many bad things because of the smaller workforce and the smaller portfolio of plants,” said David Cole, chairman emeritus of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Mich. “The vulnerability to stupid things is not as great as it used to be.” Detroit is finally doing many things right. GM, Ford and Chrysler are all building vehicles like the Sonic that can be sold globally, saving billions that used to be spent developing cars for individual markets. Because they are no longer overproducing cars and trucks, they can command higher prices. And they’re no longer blindly chasing market share as they did in the early 2000s, when GM executives wore buttons that said “29” because their goal was to grab 29 percent of U.S. sales. It didn’t work. GM currently is making money with about 18 percent of the market. U.S. auto sales rose 13 percent last year to 14.5 million, the best in five years.

Search engine tailors results for tablets

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The makers of Blekko believe they’ve built a great alter native to Google, but they’re also realistic. They know their two-year-old Internet search engine won’t ever supplant Google as the most popular place to search on laptop and desktop computers. But Web surfing on tablet computers is a different matter, creating an opportunity that Blekko hopes to exploit with a new product called Izik — a search engine designed especially for Apple Inc.’s iPads and tablets running on Google’s Android software. Izik, whose name is a riff on 17thcentury scientist Isaac Newton,

Bama, ND defensive chiefs hot coaching commodities Roswell Daily Record

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart wants to be a head coach someday. It’s just that there’s no immediate rush. The same might be said of topranked Notre Dame’s defensive mastermind, Bob Diaco. Both he and Smart have drawn interest from schools for top jobs, which is to be expected. Their defenses are perhaps the nation’s best, and have helped steer both teams into Monday night’s BCS championship game. The 37-year -old Smart interviewed with the second-ranked Crimson T ide’s in-state rival, Auburn, and seems to be mentioned annually as a head coaching candidate for other programs the past few years. “It’s not like I wake up every day trying to leave Alabama,” Smart said Friday in his first public comments since meeting

with Auburn officials. “I have the best non-head coaching job in the country, period, because I’ve got a great administration, we’ve got a great facility. I want to be where I can win and I know you can win at Alabama. I think that’s so important.” Diaco was a candidate at Boston College, among other schools. Neither ultimately landed the jobs but they’re already in enviable positions working for coaching mentors at top programs. Diaco has been Brian Kelly’s defensive coordinator since 2009, their final season at Cincinnati. Smart, who makes $950,000 a year, has been with defensive wizard Nick Saban during his entire six-year run at Alabama after one season under him at LSU and the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. “I have become who I’ve become as a coach from working for

coach Saban,” Smart said. Tide linebacker Nico Johnson thinks his position coach would make a good head man. “He’s pretty much like coach Saban,” Johnson said. “He holds everybody to a standard and holds himself to a standard. He gets down on himself sometimes. He feels like he didn’t put us in the best situation. The Texas A&M game ate him up more than any other loss we’ve had. “As a person and as a coach, he’s something special.” Saban and Smart have routinely had defenses ranked among the nation’s best during their tenure in Tuscaloosa, with a steady stream of NFL-caliber players. The Tide defense is No. 1 in yards allowed this season. Again, what’s the hurry to leave? “I don’t worry about where I’m going to be in three years or 10

years,” Smart said. “I think if you win, that takes care of itself, and I’m not in such a hurry to run off and do anything that I don’t have a pressing issue. If I was 47, I might feel differently. But the most important thing to me right now is winning championships and developing young men into better players and better people.” Smart said he shares Saban’s aversion to hypothetical situations when asked if he hopes to replace Saban at Alabama. He said Saban has supported him when other suitors approached him. “I think Alabama is a special, special place, and it’s obviously a great place to coach,” Smart said. “But as far as anything outside of that, I’m just worried about this game and being successful at Alabama.” Diaco also works for a former defensive coordinator, since Kelly

had stints in that position at lower level Assumption and Grand Valley State. Notre Dame is a private school and doesn’t release salary information, but Diaco was promoted to assistant head coach before this season. Then he became the first Fighting Irish assistant to win the Broyles Award after directing the nation’s top scoring defense. “The selection committee is all basically Hall of Fame coaches, guys that we really point toward to say, ‘Hey, someday I’d just love to be like that guy,”’ Diaco said. “So it’s a great, great honor, one that I don’t take lightly at all. I’ve talked about it with my family. I’ve talked about it with my wife through this grind of years from stop to stop and place to place. “It’s just a great honor as it relates to a job well done in service.”

Indianapolis needs playoff newcomers to get past Ravens

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The playoffs can’t start soon enough for Donnie Avery. Five years after being the first receiver taken in the 2008 NFL draft, he will finally make his postseason debut at Baltimore. It’s about time. “It’s great, it’s like starting the season all over again,” the Colts receiver said Friday with a smile. “It’s got my juices flowing again.” The veterans who have been there before will explain this is the way the playoffs are — exciting and nerve-racking all the same time. And this week, at least, Avery isn’t the only one in the Colts’ locker room going through this experience for the first time. Of the 53 players on this year’s roster, 28 have never played in an NFL playoff game. Perhaps that should be expected from a team that has relied on rookie quarterback Andrew Luck, piled up more combined rushing and receiving yards by rookies than any team since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger and endured the most thorough

housecleaning project of any team in the league after last years’ 2-14 debacle. More than a half-dozen key players from the Colts’ 2009 Super Bowl team, including Peyton Manning, were let go. But the truth is only nine rookies are on that first-timer list as the surprising Colts (11-5) visit AFC North champion Baltimore (10-6) in Sunday’s wild-card round game. The other names include linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who had a team-high 203 tackles after arriving from Canada; Cassius Vaughn, who spent the last two seasons in Denver but didn’t get to play in either of the Broncos’ postseason games last year; and cornerback Vontae Davis, the reigning AFC defensive player of the week who spent his first three years in Miami. “It’s a special moment. I’ve never been to the playoffs being in Miami. My brother, Vernon Davis of San Francisco, he went to his first playoffs last year. He said it’s a great feeling, a great experience,” Vontae Davis said. “I asked him for any tips and

he just said ‘play harder.”’ If Davis or the others have additional questions, they won’t have to look too far. Outside linebackers Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, safety Antoine Bethea, kicker Adam Vinatieri and receiver Reggie Wayne all own Super Bowl rings. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and backup running back Mewelde Moore have rings, too. Coach Chuck Pagano and most of those ex-Ravens he brought along have been to the playoffs multiple times as well, and their advice is simple. “It’s another week, we know the stakes are higher,” Pagano said. “We know the energy is higher but don’t get caught up in all that stuff. Do what you’ve been doing.” What the Colts have done best during this remarkable season is find ways to win. Behind Luck, they have a league-high nine wins in one-possession games. Luck also tied the NFL record by directing seven game-winning drives in the fourth quarter, and even when the No. 1 overall draft pick hasn’t played his best, they’ve still come up with big plays — Wayne’s stretching score to beat Green Bay, Vick Ballard’s twisting dive to beat Tennessee, Deji Karim’s 101-yard kickoff return to flip last Sunday’s game against Houston. The Colts don’t want to change that part of it now. “I think we’ve done a lot to get to this point, so I don’t think you need to wholesale change things,” Luck said. “Obviously, intensity is going to ratchet up, things are going to kick up a notch but trust in the same preparation, in the same process and hopefully that’ll pay dividends.” That won’t be the only reward. Wayne acknowledged Friday he has talked to the playoff newbies about everything from the Colts midnight move to the reaction they can expect when they return to their former hometown to the need to avoid throwing at 2004 defensive player of the year Ed Reed. It was something else that really got the players’ attention, though. “We tell them the more you play in the playoffs, the more checks you get. You see guys’ eyes light up,” Wayne said. “They say, ‘Really, there’s more money?’ The guys I think are very excited. I don’t think it will be too big for them, it hasn’t been all year.” Certainly not for Luck, who has been breaking league and franchise records all season. He heads into this weekend carrying a streak of 105 consecutive passes without an interception, his longest all season. And though things have traditionally not gone well for rookies in the playoffs, Luck is confident his big-game experience at Stanford and his unflappable approach will work in his favor Sunday. Joe Flacco, who has made the playoffs in all five of his NFL seasons agrees.

AP Source: Jags assistants can pursue other jobs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars assistant coaches are no longer in limbo. Owner Shad Khan is allowing the assistants to look for other jobs while he continues interviewing general manager candidates, a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not publically discussed details of the process. Khan fired GM Gene Smith on Monday and has since been crisscrossing the country interviewing potential replacements. He has spoken with Atlanta’s David Caldwell, San Francisco’s Tom Gamble and Marc Ross of the New York Giants. The new GM is expected to decide the fate of coach Mike Mularkey, who went 2-14 in his first season in Jacksonville. Since Mularkey’s assistants are under contract for 2013, Khan could have prevented them from talking to other

clubs. Instead, he’s giving them an opportunity to line something up in case they are not retained. Khan, however, still could block any of the assistants from leaving since they are under contract. Mularkey, meanwhile, can only wait things out. If Khan wanted to fire Mularkey, he probably would have done it Monday. So keeping him around and allowing him to at least meet with the new GM gives Mularkey a chance to stick around longer. The Jaguars made little, if any, progress in his first season. They ranked 29th in total offense and 30th in defense. Talent was the biggest issue, and Smith took the fall for assimilating a lackluster roster over the last four seasons. Mularkey could be next. For several of his assistants, this is the third consecutive year of offseason uncertainty. Defensive coordinator Mel

AP Photo Jacksonville coach Mike Mularkey responds to a question during a press conference, Monday. Tucker, defensive line coach Joe Cullen, linebackers coach Mark Duffner and offensive line coach Andy Heck were unsure whether they would have jobs following the 2010 season.

Owner Wayne Weaver decided to keep coach Jack Del Rio and his staff in January 2011, but declined to give them contract extensions, creating a lameduck situation in 2011.

“My advice would be, go about your business as you always would on a normal week. It’s obviously gotten you to the point that you’re in the playoffs and playing to get to another week,” the Ravens quarterback said. “If it got you that far, then you’re obviously doing something right so you should try to continue that. You shouldn’t try anything crazy just because it’s playoff time.” Instead, the Colts intend to follow the same tack they’ve taken all season and not worry about all those other things that come into play when you’re making a playoff debut. “Sometimes, I think it’s better not to know,” said backup quarterback Drew Stanton, a six-year veteran who has not taken a snap in the postseason but did play in three games on Detroit’s 0-16 team. “I think it (the playoffs) have been kind of infectious around here, there’s kind of an obligation to this team and this city to put your best foot forward. That’s what we want to do.”

Falcons’ White focused on postseason, not Pro Bowl

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White has gotten over his initial disappointment of missing out on the Pro Bowl for the first time in five years. White is focused on winning a playoff game. Under fifth-year coach Mike Smith, the Falcons have gone 0-3 in the postseason, but at 13-3 they’re in the same spot they held two years ago as the NFC’s No. 1 seed. White insists that “it’s going to be a lot different outcome” this time. In suffering playoff losses to the New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, White thinks the Falcons still had too much youth on their roster to know what it takes to win on the big stage. “We’re not doing a lot of the young things we used to do to lose games and stuff like that,” White said on Friday. “This was a pivotal point for us as a football team this year. In previous (regular seasons), I felt like we didn’t win those games against teams we needed to beat and this year we did.” Now in his eighth year with Atlanta, White says he’s pleased that receiver Julio Jones was named to the Pro Bowl in just his second year. “That was the best part,” White said. “I probably would’ve been upset if neither of us had made it. It made a little more at ease. I really would’ve been ticked off if neither one of us had made it.” White has more catches and yards receiving than Jones, but Jones caught 10 touchdown

passes to White’s seven. They have combined for 171 catches, 2,549 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns. “Roddy has been so good to me in helping me learn what it takes to be a professional,” Jones said. “We compete just like players at any position, but we’re close and we’re always pushing to make each other better. Same thing with Harry (Douglas) and everyone else.” White sees no sense in belaboring the Pro Bowl talk even though he became just the fifth NFL player to post three consecutive seasons with 90-plus catches and 1,200-plus yards. “I’ve been to a couple of them,” he said. “I know what it feels like to be out there and stuff like that, so it wasn’t a big thing that I had on the list.” Another reason that White is encouraged about the Falcons’ next game on Jan. 13 is that quarterback Matt R yan has become the team’s most indisputable leader. When the Falcons lost at Arizona in the 2008 wild-card round, Ryan was a rookie. In getting blown out the last two years by Green Bay and New York, White thinks Ryan might have been handcuffed by predictable play-calling of former of fensive coordinator Mike Mularkey. Now that Dirk Koetter has taken over the job, the Falcons have said all season that they’re more aggressive in the passing game and able to move downfield and control the clock even though their running game has been emphasized less.
