White House ramps up gun control talk

WASHINGTON (AP) — Less than a month after a horrific elementary school shooting, the White House is fighting to keep the momentum for new gun legislation amid signs it’s losing ground in Congress to other pressing issues.


January 9, 2013

Vice President Joe Biden has invited the National Rifle Association and other gunowner groups for talks at the White House on Thursday. On Wednesday, the vice president will meet with victims’ organizations and representatives from the video game and entertainment industries. The administration’s goal is to forge consensus over proposals to curb gun violence.

President Barack Obama wants Biden to report back to him with policy proposals by the end of January. Obama has vowed to move swiftly on the recommendations, a package expected to include both legislative proposals and executive action. “He is mindful of the need to act,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Tuesday. But as the shock and sorrow over the Newtown, Conn., shooting fades, the tough fight facing the White House and gun-control backers is growing clearer. Gun-rights advocates, including the powerful NRA, are digging in against tighter legislation, conservative

groups are launching progun initiatives and the Senate’s top Republican has warned it could be spring before Capitol Hill begins considering any gun legislation. “The biggest problem we have at the moment is spending and debt,” Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said on Sunday. “That’s going to dominate the Congress between now and the end of March. None of these issues will have the kind of priority as spending and debt over the next two or three months.” Tuesday marked the second anniversary of the TucSee GUNS, Page A3

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Texas officials asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to force New Mexico to abide by an agreement about sharing water from the Rio Grande. But New Mexico officials said the move is “tantamount to extortion.” The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said the litigation was filed after negotiations with New Mexico were unsuccessful. The agency says New Mexico is violating the 1938 Rio Grande Compact that governs how water is shared by Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. But New Mexico Attorney General Gary King said a 2008 agreement between two water districts unfavorably changed the allocation of water to his state. King said Texas is trying to force New Mexico to abide by an unfair agreement and called the lawsuit “tantamount to extortion.” Texas accuses New Mexico of allowing illegal diversions of surface and underground water of the Rio Grande near the Texas-New Mexico border. Texas officials say those diversions take away water from farmers and resSee WATER, Page A3

New Mexico groups urge Officials: US might leave no troops Pearce to support VAWA in Afghanistan after Dec. 2014

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A coalition of women launched a petition drive Tuesday to pressure the sole Republican member of New Mexico’s congressional delegation to support proposed expanded protections under the Violence Against Women Act.

Like other legislators, Rep. William “Bill” Gray, R-Artesia, is busy preparing for the state’s 60-day 2013 legislative session, which begins next week. “Sixty days in Santa Fe is a long time,” he said. However, he also said it may not be long enough to do all that the Legislature needs to. One particular issue that warrants more time and attention, he said, is figuring out how to make retirement

funds solvent for the years ahead. When people retire, he said, they are supposed to be provided a certain amount of money; however, not enough money is coming in to take care of liabilities and obligations for both retirees and those who will retire. “That’s going to take a lot of time, to study this,” he said. “With all the other bills, we have to give the proper attention it needs to solve this problem.” Another issue is balancing the state budget and, as a

member of the House of Representatives’ Appropriations and Finance committee, it will be his main priority. The committee will hear requests for funding from several of the state’s departments to determine how much they should receive. “When it’s all said it done, we have to balance the budget,” Gray said. “It’s the state law.” It’s estimated that the state budget will be as much as $6 billion this year, he said. The state’s fiscal year starts July 1.

Gray is also a member of the House’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee and said he will continue to protect the state’s oil and gas industry. Another concern Gray has is for the public education system. Nationally, he said the state ranks near the bottom and has a high dropout rate. In an effort to reverse this, he will support a bill to provide more literacy education for children before kindergarten and through third grade.

Police catch Servantez Albuquerque police start JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Crystal Servantez, 29, was apprehended Monday night when an of f-duty police officer recognized her in Walgreens, 1835 N. Main St., where she was caught shoplifting mint-flavored dental floss and Ibuprofen. Servantez was listed on the Dec. 5 Daily Record’s Roswell’s Most Wanted for failure to appear on charges of trafficking methamphetamines, possession, drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence. In addition, a warrant was issued at the end of December when Servantez was implicated in an arson that took place in the 300 block of South Sequoia Avenue on Nov. 20, where a woman awoke to find her car on fire. The arson resulted in $5,000 worth of damage and ended a cycle of harassment that dated back to May 2011. Gene Chester, 64, had been arrested four times previously for aggravated stalking. The target in each case was the same female victim whose car went up in a fiery blaze. Chester pleaded no contest with two of the cases. He was convicted on the fourth charge of aggravated stalking in October. He was released from prison on Jan. 15. Four days later he renewed his vendetta against the 56-year -old victim. His movements were tracked using the ankle monitoring system Chester had to wear as a condition of his probation.


Crystal Servantez

On Dec. 13, Chester was sentenced on the final offense to four years in jail, three years with a one-year enhancement as a habitual offender. According to court documents, Chester was incarcerated in Chaves County Detention Center when he arranged the arson. Servantez was one of two named co-conspirators, along with Isaiah Chavez, 23, who was Chester’s cellmate. Detectives learned of a conversation where Servantez allegedly described specifics about the arson.

The police also traced three $200 deposits made to Chavez’s bank account by Chester. When Servantez was picked up by the police, she had a small American flag, a handcuff key and a cell phone. Servantez is being held at Chaves County Detention Center on the no-bond warrant for failure to appear and $100,000 cash or surety bond on the conspiracy to commit arson charges.

New Mexico bill would prohibit double-dipping for travel expenses SANTE FE (AP) — New Mexico legislators wouldn’t be allowed to get reimbursements for the same expense from more than one source under a bill filed in reaction to a travel scandal involving a House member defeated in his re-election bid. Republican Rep. Nate Gentry of Albuquerque filed his bill in response to expense double-dipping by Democrat Ray Begaye of Shiprock, the Las Cruces SunNews reported. Begaye served in the Legislature for 14 years. He was defeated in his November re-election bid by Republican Sharon Clahchischilliage of Shiprock. Attorney General Gary King’s office concluded that Begaye on five occasions was

reimbursed for out-of-town trips by both the state and the National Conference of State Legislatures. King’s office said Begaye didn’t violate state law based on its reading of a law on expenses and mileage. However, the office urged lawmakers to change state law so that lawmakers’ travel expenses can be reimbursed by only one entity. Gentry, an attorney, said New Mexico already has a criminal statute against billing the state for a trip that was paid for by somebody else. He said it is the law against submitting a false public voucher, a fourth-degree felony.

recruit plan amid probe ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The police department in New Mexico’s largest city has launched a multimedia officer recruiting campaign amid a federal probe and a large number of expected retirements. Using social media, television commercials and billboards, the Albuquerque Police Department’s new recruiting campaign is aimed at recruiting recent college students and returning veterans just as officials say the department faces a shortage of around 80 of ficers. In addition, about 200 more officers are expected to retire due to proposed changes to state retirement funds. “Fair ness, pride,

integrity,” a recruiting website boasts to sounds of helicopters and marching cadets. On a YouTube channel with Albuquerque police videos, the department has videos of of ficers demonstrating typical days on helicopter patrol and on mounted horse as they roam through various areas of the city. The channel also has posted video of cadets on ride-alongs. So far, more than 100 interested candidates have applied to take the department’s first-round test, officials said. To attract more recruits, Mayor Richard Berry and Albuquerque Police Chief Raymond

recently Schultz announced an initiative that will give each cadet a $5,000 bonus for completing the academy and $500 for city employees who refer qualified candidates.

The recruitment push comes as the U.S. Justice Department announced it was investigating the department over excessive force claims. The civil probe is looking into how the department responded to of ficer -involved shootings and if the agency has done enough with new policy changes.

Albuquerque police have been involved in more than two dozen shootings since 2010.

Songbird gets protected SW habitat PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is designating almost 1,300 miles of streams in Arizona, New Mexico and four other states as protected habitat for the endangered Southwestern willow flycatcher. The small, insect-eating songbird migrates to Mexico and Central America during winters and breeds in and around U.S. riparian areas. It became a federally endangered species in 1995. The critical habitat covers nearly 209,000 acres but doesn’t automatically establish those areas as preserves. It does, however, ban destruction or “adverse modification” of these lands for projects conducted or authorized by the federal government. Adverse modification typically means activity that destroys the lands’ value for the endangered species. The protected habitat also includes California, Colorado, Utah and Nevada along rivers including the Rio Grande, Gila, Virgin, Santa Ana and San Diego. This is the third designation of critical

habitat for the flycatcher. The first designation — 599 river miles in 1997 — was challenged by the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association. That resulted in protection of 730 miles in 2005. Although the designation was for more acres, the Center for Biological Diversity argued that it failed to consider hundreds of miles of rivers identified in a scientific recovery plan for the flycatcher. On Wednesday, the Fish and Wildlife Service designated 208,973 acres along 1,227 miles of river as protected critical habitat for the flycatcher. According to a 2007 survey, there are roughly 1,299 territories spread across the species range, with substantial populations on the upper Gila River and middle Rio Grande in New Mexico, Roosevelt Lake and the lower San Pedro in Arizona, and numerous scattered locations in California. The species breeds in streamside forests of Southern California, southern Nevada, southern Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.

CITY COUNCIL MEETS THURSDAY City Council is expected to vote on whether to approve a budget adjustment to fulfill the Roswell Department’s Police request for its own attorney, during its monthly meeting at 7 p.m., Thursday, in Council Chambers at City Hall, 425 N. Richardson Ave. Since the department proposed the position in August last year, the mat-

ter of how to meet the request has been subjected to much debate among the council and the resolution has been tabled several times. Council is expected to vote, following a recommendation regarding the position from the Finance Committee. During the meeting, there will also be two public hearings, one for a pro-

son, Ariz., attack that killed six people and critically injured former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Following that shooting, Obama called for a national dialogue on gun violence. But his words were followed by little action. Giffords took a prominent role in the gun debate on Tuesday’s anniversary. She and husband Mark Kelly, a former astronaut, wrote in an op-ed published in USA Today that their Americans for Responsible Solutions initiative would help raise money to support greater gun control efforts “to balance the influence of the gun lobby.” Kelly has indicated that he and Giffords want to become a prominent voice for gun control and hope to start a national conversation about gun violence. There was also little national progress on curbing gun bloodshed following shootings at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, a Texas Army base or a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, all of which occurred during Obama’s first term. Still, the killing of 6- and 7-year -olds at Newtown’s Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14 did appear to stir a deeper reaction from the White House

and Capitol Hill. Obama pushed gun control to the top of his domestic agenda for the first time and pledged to put the full weight of his presidency behind the issue. And some Republican and conservative lawmakers with strong gun rights records also took the extraordinary step of calling for a discussion on new measures. But other gun-rights advocates have shown less flexibility. The NRA has rejected stricter gun legislation and suggested instead that the government put armed guards in every school in America as a way to curb violence. A coalition of conservative groups is also organizing a “gun appreciation day” later this month, to coincide with Obama’s inauguration. The president hopes to announce his administration’s next steps to tackle gun violence shortly after he is sworn in for a second term on Jan. 21. Obama wants Congress to reinstate a ban on militarystyle assault weapons, close loopholes that allow gun buyers to skirt background checks and restrict highcapacity magazines. Other recommendations to the Biden group include making gun trafficking a felony, getting the Justice Department to prosecute people caught lying on gun backgroundcheck forms and ordering opposed to no food at all. He also discussed fasts from sin and day-to-day activities such as watching television or visiting social networking sites. Natasha Mackey, event coordinator, said that last year’s event went well, though there were issues getting people to meet at one particular venue for 21 days. This year, she said the goal was to make the event easily accessible to the entire community. For the next 21 days, anyone who wishes to participate in the prayer portion of the event can join the conference call. Those who wish to join the call can call, 530881-1000 from 7 to 8 p.m. each night and use the access code 815906.

federal agencies to send data to the National Gun Background Check Database. Some of those steps could be taken through executive action, without the approval of Congress. White House officials say Obama will not finalize any actions until receiving Biden’s recommendations. Gun-rights lawmakers and outside groups have also insisted that any policy response to the Newtown shooting also include an examination of mental health policies and the impact of violent movies and video games. To those people, the White House has pledged a comprehensive response. “It is not a problem that can be solved by any specific action or single action that the government might take,” Carney said. “It’s a problem that encompasses issues of mental health, of education, as well as access to guns.” In addition to Biden’s meetings this week, Education Secretary Arne Duncan will meet with parent and teacher groups, while Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will meet with mental health and disability advocates. The White House said other meetings are also scheduled with community organizations, business owners and religious leaders. 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting event page on Facebook. Espinoza said she believes the event is key for the city to move forward and has no doubt that the power of prayer can affect changes in the city much like it has in her own life. “I believe that God is the center of everything in our lives,” she said. “I believe that very strongly, and he’s an integral part of who I am.” Mackey is pleased at how far the event has grown since its inception in 2011 as well as how it has united prominent people in Roswell with the rest of the community members. “I think today was a wonderful cross-section of our community,” she said. “We had pastors, we had state representatives, we had city officials here and it was a great success. Most importantly, the Lord was here.”

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has said he foresees a need for a U.S. counterterrorism force in Afghanistan beyond 2014, plus a contingent to train Afghan forces. He is believed to favor an option that would keep about 9,000 troops in the country. Administration officials in recent days have said they are considering a range of options for a residual U.S. troop presence of as few as 3,000 and as many as 15,000, with the number linked to a specific set of military-related missions like hunting down terrorists.

idents in and around El Paso, a drought-stricken area that gets about half of its drinking water and most of its irrigation water from the Rio Grande. New Mexico also has been struggling with drought and above-normal temperatures for the past two years. Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order New Mexico to comply with the compact and to award damages. The fight hinges on a 2008 agreement between the federal government and two irrigation districts, one in Texas and the other in New Mexico, that use water from the Elephant Butte reservoir. The issue has been ongoing since the 1980s. Historically, the lawsuit states, New Mexico received about 57 percent of the water from the reservoir, while Texas got the remaining 43 percent. However, King said the 2008 agreement changed the method of water allo-

law,” Pearce said in a statement issued to The Associated Press. “I’ve been meeting with New Mexico constituents on this issue, and they feel as I do, that this law is important and needs reauthorization. I call on the Senate to put politics aside and approve it now.” The women’s groups gathered outside Republican Party headquarters in Albuquerque on Tuesday accused Pearce and other House Republicans of playing politics. They argued that the Senate version of the bill would better protect American Indian women as well as those in immigrant and gay and lesbian communities. “I think the stumbling block is ideologues in the Republican Party and people like Steve Pearce need to decide whether their loyalty belongs to the people who elected them or to the far right,” said Martha

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 cation from 57 percent to only 38 percent, while the share was Texas increased to 62 percent. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez’s office had not yet seen the lawsuit, her spokesman Enrique Knell said. “We will continue to strongly defend New Mexico’s water rights. We are reviewing the Texas lawsuit and will decide how best to protect the water that is so vital to New Mexican families and businesses. We won’t cede a single inch of New Mexico water to Texas,” Knell said. But even if the Supreme Court accepts the case, a ruling could be years away, according to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. In its complaint, Texas estimates the amount of water diverted by New Mexico is at least tens of thousands of acre-feet each year — maybe even hundreds of thousands. An acre-foot equals 325,000 gallons. New Mexico has had little meaningful snowpack at high elevations in Burk of the National Council of Women’s Organizations. Burk said it’s not just about Pearce’s district, which is primarily a rural, conservative area. “We want to hold the line because all citizens deserve protection,” she said. Burk and the other advocates planned to send Pearce one purple ribbon for every person who signed the online petition. By late Thursday afternoon, 400 people from around the state added their names. The battle over reauthorization of the act has been long and contentious. Created to prevent domestic abuse and protect its victims, the 1994 act expired in 2011. The House in May narrowly passed its own version, but the Obama White House threatened a presidential veto, saying it didn’t go far enough to protect battered illegal immigrants, Native Americans or gays. The Democratic-led Senate extended new protections to those minority groups.


recent years and not enough spring and summer runoff to replenish the state’s rivers and reservoirs. Thousands of farmers across southern New Mexico have been forced to pump more groundwater to irrigate their crops. Some stretches of the Rio Grande and Pecos River even went dry last summer, and forecasters are predicting little moisture through the spring months.

Still, Ed Archuleta, president of El Paso Water Utilities, said the complaint is justified. He said drought has forced New Mexico far mers to pump underground water from wells affecting the supply of water to the river. New Mexico, he said, has not monitored the underground pumping by its farmers.

Archuleta said his utility normally gets half of El Paso’s water supply from the river — about 60,000 acre-feet — but it received about 45 percent of that amount last year. This year, he is expecting even less but said the city is prepared.

In New Mexico, where some 20,000 domestic violence incidents are reported each year, advocates are hopeful Congress will be able to settle the questions regarding constitutionality and still clear the way for expanded protections. Daniel Manzano, policy director for the New Mexico Coalition Against Domestic Violence, said the state stands to benefit given its high populations of Native and immigrant women. “The 113th Congress, they’re the most diverse Congress elected in a long time. Hopefully they’ll understand how important this is,” he said. While New Mexico only gets around $1 million for domestic violence programs and services through VAWA, Manzano said the language of the act is more important. “It’s the only place where it’s federally recognized that committing acts of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking are crimes,” he said.

Contemplating New Mexico’s collection of white elephants

SANTA FE — When I suggested in a recent column that Spaceport America might be a good location for the $1 billion research ghost town a one-man international development company is promoting, I was only half serious. It does seem that New Mexico’s much-heralded spaceport could be on its last legs unless Gov. Susana Martinez and the New Mexico Legislature work very hard in the next few months to keep it. Some very exciting offers have been made to Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic by some deep-pocketed suitors. Virgin Galactic now says it was sold a bill of goods when former Gov. Bill Richardson painted a picture of Virgin being the center of a thriving spaceport. After several years, Virgin remains the only tenant at the site. Meanwhile the trial-lawyer laden Legislature appears far from granting the limited supplier liability protection our competition is offering and Gov. Martinez is act-




ing as though she would rather be pursued by Branson instead of her pursuing his business. This scenario from a past column got retired state tourism staffer Mike Pitel to thinking he had witnessed similar occurrences of state or federal money being spent on good ideas in the middle of nowhere that never have fulfilled their original promise. Pitel mentioned Caprock Amphitheater, between Tucumcari and Clovis and Greyhound Stadium, between Portales and Clovis, as two examples of projects he has wondered about.

We especially enjoy our friends’ reactions while going through the section where it suddenly becomes completely dark and desert noises such as lightening, rattle snakes and other varmints fill the air. I am hoping it is doing as well as original predictions suggested. But it is in the middle of nowhere and it hasn’t been busy when we have been there. One of its advantages is that it is part of the

suggested by others include the Bosque Redondo Memorial/Fort Sumner State Monument, near Fort Sumner, The Camino Real International Heritage Center, between Socorro and T or C, and the Ghost Ranch Living Museum near Abiquiu. Another problem exists with oddly-located visitor centers. We have a beautiful new one west of Gallup that has many visitors and rivals Arizona’s visitor center a few miles down I-40. But other visitor centers seem to be located where an underutilized building already existed. All of the subjects listed above are worthy issues that deserve recognition. And maybe all should exist. But these and others need to be studied. What is their annual visitation, operating cost and return on investment? What is their purpose? Are they underutilized, undervisited or closed? During the past 50 years, my wife and I have had the opportunity to travel all the paved roads

National and International Historical Trails systems, which receives federal assistance. It also is part of the New Mexico state monuments system. Perhaps you know of others that should be added to the list. If so, Pitel and I would like to know. Others may be interested also. The information might make a good term paper or newspaper feature. The subject might be worthy of some sharp pencils at Gov. Susana Martinez’s Department of Finance and Administration or at the Legislative Finance Committee. These all are sacred cows to some people. Some of these may have been seen as economic development for a needy area of the state. Possibly every project listed above is absolutely justified. But we need to know.

Mental illness

One important issue that deserves closer public examination has been brought to the forefront by the terrible school shooting in Newtown, Conn. And before blood pressures start to rise and rhetoric begins to flow, this isn’t about gun control. No, this is about a subject that has long remained ignored, pushed into the background and, in some cases, abandoned by this country: mental health and how society views the rights of the mentally ill and their families. The National Alliance on Mental Illness says that mental illness is much more common than most suspect. Fully 10 percent of children suffer from mental disorders and among inmates in this country’s prisons the rate of mental illness stands at about one-fourth. The World Health Organization says that mental disorders account for four out of 10 reported disabilities and the r a t es of m e n t al i ll n es s am o n g t h e homeless populations are incalculable. But mental disorders, unlike illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, carry a stigma that other illnesses do not. A diagnosis of mental illness is often an invitation to prejudge the individual — and not everyone is comfortable around the mentally ill. Persons with mental disorders are frequently loath to seek treatment due to this stigma. Moder n decisions by American courts have made it more difficult for families to get help for the mentally ill, expanding the patients’ rights to control their medication and treatment, and limiting the ability to commit those who might be in need of more formal care. Add to the mix that mental illness is not a glamorous cause of the day — one with celebrities flocking to raise money for research — the plights of families with severely mentally-ill people in their care grow more numerous, poignant and difficult. Unfortunately, the spotlight often only illuminates mental-illness issues when there is a crisis that brings negative attention, like the one in Newtown. But it’s an issue that should be shepherded to the forefront and treated with as much concer n and openness as other diseases. For those who do not have a personal relationship with mental illness, now is the time to realize that it’s a path no one chooses to walk. Removing the stigma associated with mental illness and working toward solutions that allow everyone touched by mental illness to live normal lives should be a common goal. Perhaps this latest tragedy will help put these concerns into sharper focus. Guest Editorial The New Bern Sun Journal DEAR DOCTOR K: I’ve heard that an illness known as “C. diff” is running rampant in hospitals. What is it? How can I avoid it during my upcoming hospitalization? DEAR READER: You’re referring to a dangerous intestinal infection caused by a bacterium known as Clostridium difficile, or “C. diff.” C. diff bacteria, and the spores they produce, are not just in hospitals; they’re everywhere. And they’re not just in the environment around us; they’re also inside many of us, in our intestines, along with trillions of other bacteria. Most of the bacteria in our gut can’t hurt us. In fact, some of them actually help us, such as by making vitamins we need. And even though many of us harbor C. diff bacteria inside us, in healthy

Differences between female and male senators As the son of a woman, the husband of a woman and the father of daughters and granddaughters, I celebrate the record number of females who are now United States senators. However, I do see some differences in the way these and other women are treated, depending on their party, policies and beliefs. Diane Sawyer broadcast a celebratory report last week on ABC’s “World News Tonight” on which she gushed about the “record number” of 20 female senators. Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., also praised the Senate female population. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said she won’t be satisfied until



people they’re rarely a problem. But it has become a problem in hospitals for three reasons. First, hospitals do have C. diff bacteria. So if patients don’t already have C. diff bacteria in their intestines when they are admitted to a hospital, they can acquire the infection during their stay. That’s especially true for those who require long hospital stays.



there are 50 female senators. In the Senate, the ratio of female Democrats to Republicans is 16 to 4. Would media approval for these women be different if the ratio were reversed? Consider how conservative females are treated, most notably Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. During her presidential run, Bachmann

Second, many people who are hospitalized have immune systems weakened by illness, and it’s harder for them to fight off any kind of infection. The third reason hospitalized patients are particularly susceptible to C. diff infection is antibiotics. When you take an antibiotic — as many people who are hospitalized do — it doesn’t kill just harmful bacteria; it also can wipe out the good bacteria that always live in your body. Normally these good bacteria control any C. diff bacteria that may exist in your large intestine. That’s because they outcompete the C. diff bacteria for food, which keeps the numbers of C. diff relatively small. But when antibiotics wipe out the good bacteria, C. diff can take over. C. diff bacteria cause symptoms

was labeled a religious fanatic and anti-woman for being prolife. Her husband, Marcus, was criticized because of his Christian counseling clinic that some allege focuses on converting gays to heterosexuality, a charge he vehemently denies. The media mostly ignore other Republican women, like Gov. Susana Martinez of New Mexico — at least for now. “We’re less on testosterone,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told Sawyer. “We don’t have that need to always be confrontational. And I think we’re problem solvers, and I think that’s what this country needs.” Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, agreed. So testosterone is to blame

by producing toxins. These toxins produce a range of symptoms, from mild to life-threatening. Mild: watery diarrhea and belly cramps. Moderate: a lot of diarrhea, belly pain, fever, nausea. Severe: high temperature, severe diarrhea, dehydration, dramatic bleeding from the intestine. Critical: C. diff paralyzes the colon and causes it to expand. The wall of the colon can weaken and develop a hole. Surgery may be required to remove the entire colon. There’s a high chance of dying. Fortunately, most of the time a short course of antibiotics prevents this cascade of events. To prevent infection during your See DR. K, Page A5

for the fact that male senators are so combative and that Congress continues to founder? Imagine a male suggesting that estrogen hampers women from performing well at their jobs. You don’t have to imagine. Some men have said that and worse, to their shame, and society and ultimately history itself was right to denounce them. But after all the talk about female bonding and how women and men have different approaches to solving problems, what does that mean? Does it mean that a Democratic female senator who is pro-choice on abortion and favors same-sex

Update on the veterans cemetery; December “Taps”

Roswell Daily Record

Several of you have asked about the current status of our Roswell Veterans Cemetery project. Bert Ethridge and Harry McGraw have been working diligently on keeping the ball rolling. Thanks to Home Depot, $16,000 worth of fencing has been installed around the perimeter of the cemetery site. The cemetery has been plotted out, and plans for Chaves County to grade and lay gravel has been devised. A couple of the construction companies in town have indicated an interest in grading and laying gravel for specific areas of the cemetery, such as the entrance way and memorial sites around the grounds. Definite commitments are still being discussed. The primary “need” for the project at this time is money to commence operations. Bert and Harry have had conversations with the oil

men in Artesia, who have said they are very interested in donating money for the veterans cemetery. With the holidays over, further talks will resume and hopefully a benefactor from one of the oil businesses in the area will step forward with some much-needed benevolence. Contrary to liberal politicians and our “entertainment folk,” our oil men and families have been very generous in supporting our area communities. Additionally, Congressman Steve Pearce has stated he will research various government sources of funding to see if he can add muchneeded capital to our effort. He mentioned my article on the town in Louisiana that Sen. Mary Landrieu found roughly $800,000 to fund for their local veterans cemetery. One obstacle to government sources of funding is the usual distance restrictions

placed on the proximity of one veterans cemetery to another veterans cemetery. But, as is often found in these governmental restrictions, there are obvious. “exceptions to the rule.” It is easy to see that the veterans cemetery in Fort Bayard is within close proximity to the El Paso National Veterans Cemetery. The secret is finding out what the exception is and why we don’t qualify for the same treatment. Congressman Pearce has been diligently working on this funding dimension for us.

Bert has also been in contact with the Wounded Warriors Project to see if they can help in any way (to possibly help wounded warriors from all wars, as well as desert war veterans). Obviously, the number of veterans in our area will be increasing shortly. As the war winds down in Afghanistan, more veterans will be added to the current roles. If you are interested in donating money to our cemetery project, Bert’s niece has set up a Facebook page for the “Roswell Veterans Cemetery” with information on how to contribute. You can also make a contribution by contacting Valley Bank of Commerce at 623-2265. This is a valid and very worthy cause for anybody wishing to donate money to help our local veterans.

marriage, bigger roles for government, more spending and higher taxes will be able to find common ground with a Republican female senator who takes the opposite positions? I doubt it. This double standard seems not only to apply to gender, but also to race. Consider the disparaging things said about Tim Scott, the new senator from South Carolina, a replacement for the retired Jim DeMint. Scott is black, but his race does not endear him to liberals. He probably won’t be embraced by the NAACP, whose president accused him of not believing in civil rights, having received an “F” on the NAACP’s civil rights scorecard, which judges legislators on their votes on “civil rights” issues. In fact, Scott is just as much an example of the advancement of civil rights for blacks as those female senators are examples of progress for women. In the end, it isn’t about gender or race, but ideology. When they speak of “women’s issues,” for example, the left seems to think that all women think alike, or should. The same for African-Americans and civil rights. I think the

also watch the use of funds you have donated and see firsthand the awesome contribution you have made. Money, goods and services are most welcome and very much needed. There have been commentaries and editorials locally about “cleaning up” another site at considerable distances from Roswell. My comment would be why support the establishment of another veterans cemetery at considerable distance from our area? That is our major problem for obtaining veterans medical services as it stands today. Why promote another project at a significant distance from Roswell? We need all the local support we can get, my fellow neighbors. Now, for this month’s “Taps.” Veteran funeral honors rendered by the Roswell Veterans Honor Guard for the month of Dec. 2012

of infection. If you do contract a C diff infection, you will probably be taken off the antibiotic that triggered the infection. You’ll take a different antibiotic, one that will kill the C. diff bacteria. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School. To send questions, go to, or write: Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.) right correctly sees content of character and ideas as superior to gender and skin color. In the interview with Diane Sawyer, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said that by nature women are “less confrontational.” Really? McCaskill must never have met the leaders of the women’s movement whose disciples are among her colleagues. The chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., is no shrinking violet. I’m not betting on estrogen besting testosterone to “get things done,” forge compromise and diffuse confrontation, especially given the history of some very uncompromising female leaders like Cleopatra, Catherine the Great, underground railroad “conductor” Harriet Tubman, the late Bella Abzug, D-NY., or British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. In fact, these women exhibited more testicular fortitude than some men, which, in the case of the conservative Thatcher, likely had a lot to do with why her male colleagues dumped her as party leader.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Richard Ben Cramer, whose narrative non-fiction spanned presidential politics and the game of baseball, has died. He was 62. Cramer died Monday at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore from complications of lung cancer, his agent, Philippa Brophy, said. Cramer lived with his wife, Joan, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Cramer won the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting from the Middle East while with the Philadelphia Inquirer. His other notable work included a best-selling biography of New York Yankees great Joe DiMaggio, an influential magazine profile of another baseball star, Ted Williams, and a

Smart TVs get a little smarter Wednesday, January 9, 2013

LAS VEGAS (AP) — In the not-so-distant future, couch potatoes will be waving, pointing, swiping and tapping to make their TVs react, kind of like what Tom Cruise did in the 2002 movie “Minority Report.” That’s the vision of TV manufacturers as they show off “smart TVs.” The sets will recognize who’s watching and will try to guess what viewers want to see. They’ll respond to more natural speech and will connect with your smartphone in a single touch. But don’t worry about “Big Brother” looking back at you. Manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics Co. will allow motion-capturing cameras to be pointed away. Gesture recognition still has a long ways to go, and in some demonstrations at this week’s International CES show in Las Vegas, voice commands got lost in translation. At a crowded Samsung booth, one attendant demonstrated how hand gestures were used to play simple kids’ games. Raising her hand brought up an on-screen cursor. Grasping the air was equivalent to clicking on what her digital hand was hovering over. However, when she tried the same gestures on a menu of TV-watching options, the TV didn’t respond well. When she tried to give a kind of sideways wave — like Queen Elizabeth greeting her supporters — the page didn’t swipe to the left as it should have. The technology appeared less responsive compared with the Xbox 360’s Kinect motion-control system, which seems to do a much better job at swiping through menus. Later, in a quiet, enclosed Samsung booth, the TV struggled to comprehend voice commands. The TV was asked, “find me a movie with Tom Cruise,” and correctly pulled up an online trailer of his latest movie, “Jack

Reacher.” The system was then asked to “find me dramas.” The command “Number 3” was given to choose the third option in the results, but the TV instead started a new search and offered a range of viewing options for “Sommersby.” Paul Gagnon, a TV analyst with research firm NPD Group, said it’s still early days for these technologies. “Most interaction I’ve had with gesture and voice control ... it’s not real great right now,” he said. “Right now, a lot of people in the industry are just trying to explore the possibilities.” The TV makers’ new interactive features fared better when they reverted to the traditional remote control format, with some twists. Samsung’s new remote has a touch-enabled track pad that swiped through menus similar to smartphone screens on Android and Apple mobile devices. And LG Electronics Inc.’s newest “Magic Remote” controller was incredibly precise in directing where an onscreen pointer should be. It uses Bluetooth wireless technology along with a gyroscope inside the controller itself. It worked even from a great distance or when facing in the opposite direction. LG’s voice command worked well in searching for programs on live TV, Web video apps and even the broader Internet. When an attendant pressed the voice input button and spoke into the microphone on the controller asking for “Channel 5,” one of items presented was the Bing search results showing the website of the Channel 5 TV broadcaster in Las Vegas. When asked for “The Dark Knight Rises,” the TV showed that it was available for rental or purchase on-demand through the Vudu online video app and brought up that app on the TV.

CARLSBAD — It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win for the Roswell girls basketball team on Tuesday. Roswell escaped the Cave with a 21-20 victory over the Cavegirls. It was the eighth straight victory for Roswell, which moved to 9-4 on the year. “We didn’t play very well, I’ll tell you that,” said Roswell coach Joe Carpenter. “It just looked like two teams that couldn’t score. I can’t pinpoint it. “It was just an ugly, ugly game. We were fortunate enough to get a win. We looked young and inexperienced tonight.” Myla Brown led the Coyotes with five points. Priscilla Lucero and Tiffanie Bolanos had four apiece.

DEXTER — Predicting games is a fool’s errand, except when predicting how a Dexter and Hager man boys basketball matchup will turn out. While you never know who is going to win, you know that it will be close in the fourth quarter and that the atmosphere will be second-to-none in 1A or 2A. The two rivals met for the second time this season on Tuesday night and, as is usually the case, it came down to the final eight minutes. The Demons won those final eight minutes on their way to a 58-50 win over the Bobcats. Dexter (9-3) held a 44-42 advantage heading into the final quarter, but the Hagerman’s Jose Bejarano converted a bunny to tie

the score at 44. The Demons reclaimed the lead when Kevin Paez stole a pass and raced to the other end for a layup that he converted into a three-point play to give his team a 47-44 lead. Two possessions later, Hager man’s Alejandro Ramos split a pair from the charity stripe to make it a two-point game, but, 11 seconds later, David Lopez faked a triple — he had made four 3s up to that point — and drove to the basket for a layup to grow the Demon lead to four. Demon coach James Voight said that Lopez was big for his team against Hagerman. “He was huge tonight and he has been huge all year,” he said. “He is our leading scorer and some-


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was fired Tuesday after his injurydepleted unit struggled in a pair of season-ending losses that kept the Cowboys out of the playoffs for a third straight year. Ryan was let go a day after running backs coach Skip Peete was fired, and less than a week after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said things were going to get “uncomfortable” at team headquarters in nearby Irving. “At this time, the decision has been made to move forward in a different direction philosophically on defense,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said in a statement. “I have an immense amount of respect for Rob as a person and as a football coach.” Ryan spent two seasons with the Cowboys after he was fired two years into the same job in Cleveland. He didn’t hide his displeasure over being let go by the Browns before the Cowboys played them this season. He struck a different tone Tuesday. “I enjoyed my time here,” Ryan told The Dallas Morning News. “I have no hard feelings. But it doesn’t matter if I coach here or not. I will find another spot.” The Cowboys finished with four defensive starters on injured reserve, including both Sean Lee and Bruce Carter at inside linebacker — a critical position for Ryan’s 3-4 scheme. A fifth starter, nose tackle Jay Ratliff, missed all but six games with ankle and groin injuries.

Goddard’s Nik Aston (tight end and defensive end), Anthony Or nelas (defensive back) and Keanu Ortiz (defensive back) and Roswell’s Jarrett Vaz (defensive lineman) were second-team choices. In Class 2A, Amaya was selected as the first-team punter and was

Goddard led after one, but went scoreless in the second en route to a 57-54 loss to Alamogordo, Tuesday. “We came out and played a good first quarter,” said Rocket coach Kevin Jones. “I don’t know what happened, but we didn’t score a point in the second quarter. “We had the lead late, but we just couldn’t hang on to it. We fought back, just couldn’t hold on.” David Sweet led the Rockets (8-6) with 15 points. Mark McCool had 11.

DEXTER — Coaches always talk about finishing off teams and not allowing them to hang around, particularly when said team is an old rival. The Dexter girls basketball team didn’t have to worry about that on Tuesday night. Dexter raced out to a 28-9 lead after the first quarter and never allowed Hager-

man back in the game on its way to a 66-29 win over the Bobcats. The Demons (10-5) opened the game on a 9-4 run that was sparked by five points from Tamara Salas. Hagerman was able to close within two with a trey from Jessica Rodriguez, but Dexter took control of the game with a 19-2 surge to close the first quarter.

Roswell boys basketball coach Britt Cooper said after his team’s last victory that his team really hadn’t been tested and that it would be good for them to get tested by a good team. Wish granted. Carlsbad gave Roswell (12-0) about all it could handle through three quarters on Tuesday, but the Coyotes responded with a big fourth for an 83-58 win. “We messed around and let the physicality of the game bother us,” Cooper said after the win. “We’ve got to get above that. We let (Carlsbad) get into our heads a little bit. “Finally, we started clicking and, then in the fourth quarter, we played like we’re supposed to play.” Roswell maintained control throughout the first half despite poor shooting and led 32-18 at the break, but Carlsbad made

Dustin Johnson wins wind-swept PGA opener in Hawaii See ROLL, Page B2

Dustin Johnson hoists the trophy after winning the PGA’s first tournament of the new season, the Tournament of Champions at The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort in Kapalua, Hawaii, Tuesday. The win was the seventh of Johnson’s career.

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Dustin Johnson ended a windy week with a wild ride Tuesday that carried him to the first win of the PGA Tour season. Despite hitting two drives into native areas that cost him three shots, Johnson never lost the lead at Kapalua. He closed with a 5-under 68 for a four-shot victory in the Tournament of Champions, though it was up for grabs with five holes remaining. Stricker came within a fraction of an inch of tying for the lead until his birdie putt peeled away from the cup on the 13th hole, which Johnson chopped up for a double bogey. With only a one-shot lead, Johnson pitched in from 50 feet in front of the 14th green to restore his three-shot lead, and Stricker never challenged him after that. And so, the tournament that didn’t start until the

fourth day because of a powerful wind finally ended with a guy who overpowered the Plantation Course. Johnson, who finished at 16-under 203, won for the sixth straight season. Only Phil Mickelson with nine straight years has a longer active streak of most consecutive seasons with a PGA Tour victory. “He’s very athletic, and he’s just going to continue to get better,” Stricker said. “It’s fun to watch. You never know what he’s going to do, and he’s got a lot of talent.” Johnson also added a peculiar footnote to his record. He now has won the last three PGA Tour events reduced to 54 holes because of weather — rain at Pebble Beach in 2009, a hurricane at The Barclays in 2011 and gusts that topped 40 mph in Hawaii from a freak weather patSee JOHNSON, Page B2

times the numbers are down, but that is because teams focus on him more.” Dexter’s lead was 51-45 after a layup from Eric Morales, but Hager man responded two possessions later with a layup from Jessie Rodriguez that cut the lead to four. Hagerman got to within two after a runner from Rodriguez with 2:30 left in the fourth, but, 10 seconds later, Dexter delivered what Bobcat coach Anthony Mestas called the dagger when Missael Barrientos made a layup to push the lead back to four.

things really interesting in the third quarter. The Cavemen opened the quarter on a 14-2 run and, with four minutes left, trailed 34-32. Cooper called a timeout after the last bucket in that run to stem the tide. Out of the timeout, Matthew Sedillo drained a cor ner triple to push Roswell’s lead back to five, but Carlsbad closed within three on two free throws from Rodney Holcomb. Roswell took control after that, though. The Coyotes outscored Carlsbad 17-6 over the final 2:56 of the quarter and the Cavemen never

Then again, 54 holes were all that was needed to show who was playing the best golf. “It gives me a lot of confidence going into this year,” Johnson said.

That was pretty much the dagger.” The Bobcats didn’t score the rest of the way and Paez and Kyle Bonner both hit a pair of freebies in the final 1:20 to ice the game.

Alex Olesinski had 19 points, Matthew Sedillo had 17 points and Cesar Nava had 14. “I don’t know. Fourth quarter maybe,” said Cooper about whether he thought his team is the best team in the state. “Third quarter, I’d say no.” “It’s there.

Dexter’s run started with a triple from Tabatha Salas that made it a 12-7 game with 5:33 left in the first. A free throw and bunny from Tamara Salas grew the lead to eight, and a pair of freebies from Nayely Anderson made it a 10-point game.

Manning goes with glove as weather gets frightful

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — There’s a new “Gloved One” — in Denver, at least. Ripping a page from Michael Jackson’s playbook, Peyton Manning has practiced for and played in the last two games with a sticky-feeling, orange-and-grey glove on his throwing hand. Sure, Manning has earned his fair share of curious glances for donning cold-weather gear when the temperatures are in the 50s, as they were Tuesday at practice. But in getting ready for the playoff push, which could include two games in sometimes-snowy Denver, Manning is leaving no stone unturned. And, as if on cue, a strong arctic storm is expected to roll into Denver on Friday night, bringing snow and bitter cold. The high for Saturday’s playoff game against Baltimore is forecast to be 20 degrees. Manning, who won his only Super Bowl playing barehanded in a rainstorm in Miami in 2007, said he hasn’t given much thought to whether the glove would help him more in cold or wet conditions, each of which can make the ball harder, more slick and more difficult to grip. “I really have not thought about it that analytically, if that’s the word,” Manning said. “It’s a glove.” Of course, if Peyton Manning is wearing it, it’s more than a glove — it’s a topic of conversation. A creature of habit who hasn’t worn anything on his hands before this season, Manning conceded the glove is a concession to the altered feel of his grip, especially in cold weather, after the multiple neck sur-

Johnson overcame the first threat from Snedeker with back-to-back birdies, and just like that, he was ahead by five and looked unbeatable. And he won by four shots, which would appear to be an easy day of work in paradise. “It was nowhere near ho-hum,” Johnson said. “I had to really fight hard.” “It looks like very little fear in him,” Stricker said. “Because he’ll hit one a little crooked, but he’ll pull out that driver again and try it again. And he pulled it off, especially at 14. That was the deciding shot and chip for the tournament. Expect a lot of good things as he continues his career.” And don’t expect it to ever be dull.

Roswell Daily Record from Rodriguez, but Dexter closed out the first quarter with a 9-0 run. Eight of those points were a direct result of a Bobcat turnover, something that pleased Hamill. “The old saying goes, defense and rebounding wins championships, so we preach that a lot,” she said. “We really have been working on our defense and it showed today.” Hagerman never got closer than 16 points the rest of the way. Hamill said that her team played a full game against the Bobcats. In 8-Man, Meeks was picked as a quarterback and kick returner, Bishop was chosen as a running back and linebacker, Christianson was selected as an offensive lineman and defensive lineman, Moody was picked as a wide receiver and defensive back and Bruns was picked as a defensive end. Second-team choices for Gateway were Moody (kick retur ner), Chris Bonham (tight end), James Longmire (defensive end) and Kase Parker (defensive back). In 6-Man, T. Dalton was selected as an offensive lineman and defensive lineman, Rubio was picked as a running back, geries he underwent during his season out of football. “I certainly don’t think I would have had to wear the glove had I not been injured last year,” he said. “It’s part of my injury, some things that I’ve had to adjust. I’m in a different body, some things are different for me, so that’s the reason for that as much as anything.” Manning could certainly use any edge he can get in cold weather. He is 0-3 in playoff games in which the temperature at kickoff is less than 40 degrees. His numbers in those games hardly resemble the norm for a four-time Most Valuable Player with more than 59,000 yards to his credit. In the losses — 41-0 at the Jets, and 24-14 and 20-3 at New England — Manning has gone a combined 64 for 120 for 612 yards with one touchdown and seven interceptions. In two of the losses, his passer rating matched the temperature — never climbing out of the 30s. To be fair, the last loss came a full eight seasons ago, in the divisional playoffs against the Patriots. Also, Manning has more than his share of cold-weather success in the regular season, going 7-5 with five 300-yard games. That includes Denver’s regular-season finale against Kansas City on Dec. 30, the second game in which he tested out the glove, and the first NFL home game he’s ever played with the temperature under 40. His former team, the Colts, played in a dome. “For wearing it for the first time in my entire football career, I guess you could say it’s been OK the past two weeks,” Manning said after that game.

Edward Lampert faces tough road as Sears CEO Roswell Daily Record

In this Friday, Nov. 9, photo, a Sears store is shown in Hialeah, Fla. Shares of Sears Holdings fell Tuesday, Jan. 8, a day after the retailer announced that chairman and hedge fund billionaire Edward Lampert will take over the role of CEO.

NEW YORK (AP) — Shares of Sears Holdings Corp. fell Tuesday, a day after the retailer announced that chairman and hedge fund billionaire Edward Lampert will take over the role of CEO.

The investor queasiness came even as the Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based company of fered an update on holiday sales that showed some improvements at its Sears stores. Overall, the company still faces a long,

uphill battle to turn itself around. Lampert succeeds Louis D’Ambrosio, who is leaving in February because of family health matters. D’Ambrosio will remain on the board until the company’s annual meeting in May. He was named CEO in February 2011, ending a three-year search. Lampert has been known as a hands-on chairman at the operator of Sears and Kmart. The change formalizes that role at a time when the retailer is struggling with sales declines and losses. “At the end of the day, there is only one person who makes the big decisions ... and that person is Mr. Lampert,” wrote Gary Balter, an analyst at Credit Suisse, in a report. “Giving him an additional title

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Associated Press on Tuesday, D’Ambrosio said that he and Lampert had a “great partnership.” “I believe the transition will be smooth and seamless,” he added. Lampert has a tough road ahead. He engineered the combination of Sears and Kmart in 2005, about two years after he helped bring Kmart out of bankruptcy. The company has posted six straight years of declines in revenue at stores opened at least a year. While Sears’ middleincome shoppers has been hit hard by the economy’s woes, critics have long said the company hasn’t done enough to invest in its stores to compete with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Target Corp. and other competitors. Last year, Sears

does not change that reality, and in our opinion, does not change the direction of the company.” In a statement, Lampert said that he plans to continue to build on the steps outlined last year to get the company back on track. “I have agreed to assume these additional responsibilities in order to continue the company’s recovery and sustain the momentum we are experiencing,” said Lampert, the company’s largest shareholder. “Working closely with the board, management and our dedicated associates, we will remain focused on executing our goals, improving operations and building sustainable longterm value for shareholders.” In an interview with The

announced plans to restore profitability by aggressively cutting costs, reducing inventory, selling off some assets and spinning off others. The company has reduced net debt by $400 million and generated $1.8 billion of cash from the asset sales this fiscal year. Such changes have helped the business, but analysts say much more needs to be done. Sears said Monday that in the nine-week period ended Dec. 29, revenue at stores open at least a year fell 1.8 percent, largely due to sales declines in consumer electronics at both Sears and Kmart. The period included the crucial holiday season, when retailers can make up to 40 percent of annual revenue.

Unemployment falls below Action figures for ‘Django 7 pct. in most US cities Unchained’ draw protest WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell below 7 percent in a majority of U.S. cities in November, suggesting steady job gains are benefiting most parts of the country. The Labor Department said Tuesday that rates fell in November from October in 215 of the 372 largest metro areas. Rates were unchanged in 33 and rose in 124. Rates dropped below 7 percent in 192 cities. That’s the first time since the recession ended that more than half of large cities had rates below that threshold. And 52 had rates below 5 percent. Major metropolitan areas with low unemployment rates in November included: Oklahoma City, 4.5 percent; New Orleans, 4.7 percent; Washington, 5 percent; and Phoenix, 6.5 percent.

seasonal trends. So they tend to be more volatile from month to month. There are still pockets of high unemployment, but they are dwindling. In November, 29 cities reported unemployment rates of 10 percent or higher. That’s down from 35 in October and much lower than 68 cities a year ago. Bismarck, N.D., recorded the lowest unemployment rate, at 2.6 percent. The area is benefiting from an oil and gas drilling boom. The boom has benefited other cities in the region. Fargo, N.D., has the second-lowest rate, at 3 percent. Yuma, Ariz., and El Centro, Calif., reported the highest rates, at 27.5 percent and 26.6 percent, respectively. The two cities have high concentrations of migrant farm workers.



Nationwide, the unemployment rate ticked down to 7.8 percent in November from 7.9 percent the previous month. That occurred mostly because more Americans out of work gave up looking for jobs and were not counted as unemployed. Employers added jobs in nearly three-quarters of metro areas in November compared with the same month a year ago. The job gains are compiled from a survey of company payrolls, while the unemployment rates come from a second survey of households. The drop in unemployment rates will probably be reversed in the coming months because temporary workers hired by retailers, shipping companies and other employers are likely to be laid off. Unlike the national data, the metro unemployment rates are not adjusted for

Slavery-era action figures tied to Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” are raising questions about whether they’re appropriate. A line of figures of the movie’s main characters are on sale online, manufactured by toy maker NECA in partnership with the Weinstein Co. Najee Ali, director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope, plans a news conference Tuesday with other Los Angeles black community leaders calling for the removal of the toys from the market. Ali called the action figures “a slap in the face of our ancestors.” “We were outraged,” said Ali, upon learning of the figures. “We feel that it trivializes the horrors of slavery and what African-Americans experienced.” The action figures are collectibles recommended for people older than 17. Tarantino has had such fig-

him whenever he travels. But he is a Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to a computer and young girls — all younger than his daughter, I might add. I know if this gets back to his boss he’ll be fired. He’s a brilliant man and an excellent teacher. So what do I do? I have considered doing nothing, and if he gets caught let him suffer the consequences. Or, I can confront him and try to get him to see a counselor before he ruins his career, and makes me a laughingstock of the community. We’re financially comfortable and I hate to give it up, but I don’t want to live the rest of my life like this, either. Any suggestions would be appreciated. NOT LAUGHING IN WASHINGTON STATE


DEAR ABBY: My husband is now involved in his third computer affair. He’s a teacher, and his first one was with a student. He was almost fired over it. He apologized to me and to his supervisor, said it was an “error in judgment” and promised it would never happen again. Last week I found an email he had sent to another former student, and the things he said to her were disgusting. The current one is a student, too. I have a nice home and my husband is good to me except for his wandering eye. He gives me anything I want and takes me with

DEAR NOT LAUGHING: Your husband has a serious problem. He is playing Russian roulette with his career — and it’s only a matter of time until he acts inappropriately with the wrong student. If you love him at all, confront


him and insist that he talk to a counselor and learn to strengthen his impulse control. When his activities become public knowledge, as is sure to happen, you won’t be the laughingstock of the community, but your husband WILL be scorned and jobless. If you want to protect your lifestyle as well as your husband’s female students, insist he get professional help NOW. ##### DEAR ABBY: I’m a divorced “empty nester” who would like to meet a nice man to spend time with. I’m attractive, slim and active. A year and a half ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I have excellent medical care and my doctor is optimistic. She told me she has treated many women who have survived 10 years and are still doing fine. I intend to do everything in my power to be one of those women. I have tried meeting men on the Internet or through groups I belong to. I explain on the first date about my health issues because I don’t

want anyone to think I’m dishonest. Unfortunately, several men I would have liked to see again told me flat-out that they “can’t deal with the cancer thing.” I don’t want to spend the rest of my life — however long it may be — alone. Should I wait to tell a man about my illness until we’ve seen each other a few times? Or should I continue as I have, and hope I eventually find someone with enough compassion willing to take the chance? HEALTHY NOW IN WISCONSIN

DEAR HEALTHY NOW: Compassion? How about someone intelligent enough to grasp that nobody has a guarantee about how long someone will live — including him? The appropriate time to discuss your medical history is after you have gotten to know someone well enough that you can talk frankly about it, and the relationship is beyond casual. First dates do not fall into that category. No man who cares about you would ever walk away. And any man who would isn’t worth having, so consider yourself lucky.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Heloise: I read your column every day in The (Fredericksburg, Va.) Free Lance-Star. My question is about how long you should keep SPICES. I know that when spices were in tins, they couldn’t be kept longer than a year, but now that they are in jars, does the same rule apply? Virginia C., Stafford, Va.

Well, Virginia, there are still some spices in tins, but the majority are sold in glass or small plastic containers. Here is a quick guide: * Ground spices are good for two to three years. * Whole spices, three to four years. * Herbs, one to three years. * Seasoning blends, one to three years. To help keep the spices fresh, store them in a cool, dry place, and keep them out of direct light. If you are ever in doubt about spices, because the taste or color is off, replace the spice. An added hint: Extracts usually are good for about four years. However, pure vanilla will last indefinitely! Heloise

Dear Heloise: Help! Will canned evaporated milk work as a substitute for milk when baking? Sherril, via email

Yes, evaporated milk can be used in place of milk in recipes! Many use it to add a richer, creamier flavor, so substitute it all you want! Added hint: Did you know that evaporated milk is real milk? The milk is heated just enough to get rid of about half of the water that is in it. Heloise

P.S.: Evaporated milk is available fat-free and is wonderful to use in coffee or hot tea to boot!


Dear Heloise: I like to put some dried cranberries in my salad, and I really like the orange-flavored ones, but I can’t seem to find them anymore. My solution is to add some grated fresh orange rinds to the newly opened package. This keeps just as well as ever, and I get my orange cranberries. Doris B., Spokane, Wash. Dear Heloise: I love making fresh vegetable juice for my husband and me. I know it takes a lot of time, but it is worth it. I have found ways to cut down on the work. First, I clean and cut the veggies at night, put them in a plastic bag and place them in the refrigerator, and in the morning they are ready to go. I save time by putting a plastic bag as a liner in the receptacle that the roughage goes into. I take out the bag and place another in for the next day. I also use the same bags that the veggies come in so that I am recycling. Nancy T. in New York

In 1858, Douglas defeated Lincoln in a campaign for the U.S. Senate. Their debates became famous.

Movie review: Avoid ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’


006. Southwest 210 E 3rd.Thur 1/10-Sat1/12 9 am-3pm. Furniture,and Household

ANNOUNCEMENTS 025. Lost and Found

FOUND SET of keys on Poe St. between Fulkerson and New Mexico, call 622-0559. SMALL YOUNG brown and white dog found 1/ 2/13 on the corner of Mcgaffey and Virginia. 575-578-1373.

LOST MINI Black Schnauzer in Enchanted Lands area, Reward. 625-1337 or 621-2116

During this time of year, the general rule of thumb is to not expect too much with new release movies. “Texas Chainsaw 3D” is a perfect example of why the rule exists. From an absurd and unbelievable change of heart, to a third dimension that does nothing besides drive the ticket price up, “Texas Chainsaw 3D” (TC3D) is a movie that should be avoided, even if you are a fan of the horror franchise. For those who still care, TC3D is a direct sequel to the Tobe Hooper 1974 original. Essentially, TC3D ignores the other sequels, the remake and the prequel to the remake. After the opening credits, which are a highlight reel of sorts from the original movie, the townspeople take matters (stemming from the murders in the first film) into their own hands, burning down the Sawyer house and, they think, killing everyone in the family. That is not the case, however, as a child is saved by a member of the mob, and he and his wife take the girl in as their own. Fast forward (don’t even get me started on the timeline of TC3D) roughly “20” years and the baby girl, Heather Miller (Alexandra Daddario), is all grown up. When she receives a message telling her of a grandparent she wasn’t aware of, her parents come clean with her about being adopted. The message from the long-lost grandparent results in a road trip for Heather, her boyfriend Ryan (Tremaine “Trey Songz” Neverson), her friend Nikki (Tania Raymonde) and R yan’s friend Kenny (Keram Malicki-Sanchez), to Newt, Texas. In true “Texas Chainsaw” fashion, a hitchiker Darryl (Shaun Sipos) is picked up on the way as well. What Heather and her mates find in Newt is a mansion left to her by her grandmother that is more than she bargained for because her cousin, Leatherface (Dan Yeager), comes preinstalled. As you could guess, Leatherface starts a killing spree once the group of easy-on-the-eyes travelers arrive, but what director John Luessenhop does with the horror icon is unexpected. Luessenhop tries to make Leatherface an anti-hero. I am all for trying to flesh out the mass-murderer, but it is hard to find sympathy for a man who does such evil acts. With Leatherface trying to draw a little bit of sympathy, Heather somehow decides to overlook the blood spilled by her cousin and help Leatherface exact revenge on the ring-leader of the mob who torched and killed the Sawyers. That was a big problem for me. Literally hours earlier, Leatherface had killed her friends and now she decides to side with that same man? Yeah, didn’t think so. If you must watch this movie, save yourself a few dollars and watch the 2D version because the extra dimension does nothing to enhance the movie experience.

Fox: No changes to grisly drama on serial killer UFO Rating: 1 out of 5 UFOs

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Fox’s entertainment chief said Tuesday that the network did not change the content or promotion of “The Following,” its upcoming drama about a serial killer, because of the Connecticut school shooting or other real-life acts of violence. The drama featuring Kevin Bacon chasing a grisly killer who recruits murderous disciples is simultaneously one of the most stomachchurning and most anticipated new dramas on television’s docket. Debuting Jan. 21 on Fox, the Kevin Williamson-created series opens by showing the bloody aftermath of knifed prison guards, has a woman commit suicide by gouging her eye and piercing her skull with an ice pick and shows a man set on fire at a coffee stand. It’s intense, but needs to be to compete in the world of thrillers, said Kevin Reilly, Fox entertainment chairman. Williamson, creator of the “Scream” movie franchise, said he was traumatized by the events of Dec. 14, when 20 first-graders and six educators were gunned down in a Newton, Conn., elementary school. “I know it affected me,” Williamson said. “I know what happens in the real world affects me. So when I take pen to paper, there is a reaction to it and it sort of finds its way into what I do.” He doesn’t know how the latest attack will affect his work. “It just happened,” he said. “We’ll see.” But Williamson said “The Following” is partly inspired by the Columbine school shootings of a decade ago.
