Dems expect to unify after leadership race

TUESDAY

www.rdrnews.com

SANTA FE (AP) — A race for the top-ranking Senate leadership job will be decided when the Legislature convenes, and Democrats seeking the post say they don’t expect the contest to leave permanent fractures within the party during the 60-day session. Sens. Mary Kay Papen of Las Cruces and Pete Campos of Las Vegas are vying to become Senate president pro tem for the session beginning Tuesday. It’s among the most powerful positions in the Legis-

lature because the Senate president helps determine Senate committee assignments, including chairmen. The race could test the unity of Democrats, but both candidates said Monday they expect any political wounds to heal quickly as lawmakers turn their attention to the issues confronting them. “I am hoping that we will be able to come together and operate as a unified Senate,” said Papen. All 42 senators — 25 Democrats and 17 Republi-

Campos received the party’s leadership nod in a closed-door caucus meeting, but Papen decided to push ahead with her bid. Campos said he’ll try to unify Democrats regardless of who wins the leadership race. “Throughout my lifetime, what I’ve done is work to bring people together,” said Campos. The Senate president will succeed Democrat T im Jennings of Roswell, who was defeated in the general election. Jennings had

cans — get to vote on the chamber’s top-ranking leader. Papen, who describes herself as a moderate, said she’s confident of winning the leadership race with a coalition of Democrats and Republicans. She said she’s hasn’t bargained for support by offering committee chairmanships to senators. Traditionally, the liberalleaning Democratic majority has been able to elect the Senate president when its members support the party-nominated candidate.

Weather wreaks havoc on highways

See UNIFY, Page A3

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Parts of Interstate 25 and some other highways in northern New Mexico are snow packed and icy as the latest winter storm moves across the state. The Department of T ransportation says its crews have spent much of Monday plowing and spreading salt and cinder on the roadways. Other highways with difficult driving conditions include U.S. 64 from Taos Canyon to north of Agua Fria and New Mexico 434 between Mora and Black Lake. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for much of north-central New Mexico on Monday. Forecasters say as much as six to eight inches of snow could fall in the northern mountains by Monday night. Of ficials are war ning travelers that even light snow could lead to hazardous driving conditions when coupled with the freezing temperatures. Tuesday is expected to be another cold day.

Obama backs gun limits, concedes Obama: Debt limit fight there is going to be a tough fight ahead imperils elderly’s checks

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama endorsed controversial bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines on Monday, as well as stricter background checks for gun buyers — but conceded he may not win approval of all in a Congress reluctant to tighten restrictions. “Will all of them get through this Congress? I don’t know,” said Obama. He said lawmakers would have to “examine their own conscience” as they tackle gun control legislation after the horrifying Connecticut school shootings but in the face of opposition from the National Rifle Association and other progun rights groups.

The nature of stalking and what to do if you or someone you know is being stalked JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

A Bureau of Justice Statistics report indicates that 14 people of every thousand will fall victim to a stalker. The figure reveals only a portion of the problem. About 60 percent of victims never report the crime. What makes stalking insidious is the fact that many of the acts that make up stalking are not illegal. A phone call, a text, a visit, gifts, or a casual meeting are not illegal. Unlike other crimes, which

involve one act, stalking is a series of actions that occur over a period of time, and 11 percent of all victims report stalking lasting more than five years. Nearly half of all stalking victims report at least one unwanted contact per week or more. Many report more.

One Roswell woman said: “I wish it were only once. This person is waiting for me as I leave for work or retur n home. He’s standing at my gate or on my doorstep, or hiding someplace behind a wall just out of sight. He’ll

sneak up behind me when I‘m in my yard or my garage. He calls me at work and if he knows I am home, he drops in, uninvited and unannounced, or the calls start. If I don‘t answer the phone, he switches phones, hoping I won’t recognize the number, and if I don’t answer then he comes over. Eventually, I realized he had to be listening at the walls or observing my home, which is creepy. If I get within ar m’s length of

WASHINGTON (AP) — Declaring “we are not a deadbeat nation,” President Obama warned on Monday that Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed if congressional Republicans fail to increase the government’s borrowing authority in a looming showdown over the nation’s debt and spending. Obama said he was willing to negotiate deficit reduction with GOP leaders but insisted that those talks be separate from decisions to raise the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling and avert a possible first-ever national default. “They will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy,” Obama said in a news conference one week before he is sworn in for a second term. “What I will not do is to have that negoSee DEBT, Page A3

WASHINGTON (AP) — Suicides in the U.S. military surged to a record 349 last year, far exceeding American combat deaths in Afghanistan, and some private experts are predicting the dark trend will grow worse this year. The Pentagon has struggled to deal with the suicides, which Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and others have called an epidemic.

Elizabeth Goolsby

Elizabeth Jane (Beth) Stokes Goolsby was born on June 8, 1915, in Clifton, Texas. She was the second daughter born to Herbert E. Stokes and Ruby Lou Hunter Stokes. Later the family moved to Tahoka, Texas, where her dad farmed with his dad, before

Roswell Daily Record moving on to Abilene, Texas. Beth and her sisters and brother all grew up in Abilene and attended Abilene High School. During their adolescence they each picked cotton in order to help support the family. After high school she worked in a sewing factory in Abilene. She married William M. (Bill) Goolsby in Abilene on Sept. 17, 1937. Their daughter Kathryn was born in Abilene in 1940. In 1941, they left the Abilene area and moved to Prewitt where Bill worked for Moutry Refinery. Their son Billy was born in Gallup in 1944. In the late 1940s and 50s the family moved back to Abilene, then to Lubbock and finally back to Prewitt. Bill worked at Hanosh Chevrolet in Grants until Anaconda Miming built their uranium mill in the Grants area. When Anaconda built a housing area in Grants, the family moved to one of the Anaconda houses there. While living in Prewitt, Beth worked at LaFont’s Trading Post making Squaw Skirts and blouses, which were the rage for a while. Between Beth and her mother Ruby, Kathryn was one of the best dressed girls in Grants. The two made all of Kathryn’s clothes. After moving to Grants, Beth worked in a bank for a while and then went to work for the Rural Electric Association in Grants, from which she retired in 1980. After Bill’s death in 1978, she stayed in the Grants area and worked until her retirement. She then moved back to Abilene to live with her mother and sister. After the death of her sister Mildred, Beth moved to Roswell to live with Kathryn and her husband Jim until April 2011 when she became a resident of Bee Hive Home. Although she no longer sewed clothing, she had mastered the art of Counted Cross-Stitch Embroidery while in Abilene. She especially enjoyed the intricacy of Southwestern scenery and Kachinas painted with her needle and thread. Beth joined Senior Circle soon after moving to Roswell. Although unable to go on any of the trips she did enjoy the lunches and breakfasts the group enjoys. She really looked forward to the Thursday afternoon stitching group. Even after moving to Bee Hive she still looked forward to Thursday afternoons. Beth was predeceased by her husband Bill, her parents, Herbert and Ruby Stokes and two sisters, Mildred and Natalie. She is survived by her daughter Kathryn A. Goolsby Mangum and husband Jim; her son Billy J. Goolsby and his wife Ronni; her brother Herbert E. Stokes, Jr. and sisters Maxine Morgan and Jeanne Gordon and husband Robert; five grandchildren, six greatgrandchildren and one great-great granddaughter plus numerous nieces and nephews. Following her wishes, she will be cremated and her Roswell Daily Record

ashes will be taken to Grants and interred next to her husband, Bill. She passed away Saturday Jan. 12, 2013. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Anderson-Bethany Funeral Home with VistaCare Hospice Rev. Herb Gage officiating. The family wishes to thank Jennifer and all the ladies at Bee Hive Home for their loving and wonderful care of our mother. She really did have another home and family there. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and memories with the family in the online registry book at andersonbethany.com.

Robert Kille

Bob was born in Cleveland on June 25, 1930, to Samuel and Elliot Kille. He is predeceased by his younger brother Charles Kille and his parents. He moved to Roswell in the early 1990s from Glenville, N.Y. Bob married his college sweetheart, Carolyn (Pam) Ramsey on Aug. 16, 1953. Bob is survived by his wife of 59 years, a son Charlie (Betsy) Kille of Churubusco, Ind., a daughter Katie (Jeff) Syron of Schenectady, N.Y., two grandchildren and his beloved dog, Paddy.

largely controlling the flow of legislation. Martinez has long pointed to Michael Sanchez as a major hurdle in the Senate to much of her legislative agenda. Sen. Carlos Cisneros, a Questa Democrat, said he hoped majority Democrats would stick together to elect a president, but he doesn’t foresee lasting problems from the contest between Campos and Papen. “Historically we’ve gotten together and worked as best we can to address the needs of the state of New Mexico, and that’s what we need to do now,” said Cisneros, who lost the Senate president’s job in 2009 when minority Republicans joined with seven Democrats to keep Jennings. Democrats had sought to dump Jennings after he upset the party by supporting a GOP colleague in the general election.

Suicides

of a shrinking force. Pentagon figures obtained Monday by The Associated Press show that the 349 suicides among active-duty troops last year were up from 301 the year before and exceeded the Pentagon’s own internal projection of 325. Statistics alone do not explain why troops take their own lives, and the Pentagon’s military and civilian leaders have acknowledged that more needs to be done to understand the causes. Last year’s total is the highest since the Pentagon began closely tracking suicides in 2001. It exceeds the 295 Americans who died in Afghanistan last year, by the AP’s count. Some in Congress are pressing the Pentagon to do more. “This is an epidemic that cannot be ignored,” Sen. Patty Murray, DWash., said Monday. “As our newest generation of service members and veterans face unprecedented challenges, today’s news shows we must be doing more to ensure they are not slipping through the cracks.” Military suicides began rising in 2006 and soared to a then-record 310 in 2009 before leveling off for two years. It came as a surprise to many that the numbers resumed an upward climb this year, given that U.S. military involvement in Iraq is over and the Obama administration is taking steps to wind down the war in Afghanistan. “Now that we’re decreasing our troops and they’re coming back home, that’s when they’re really in the danger zone, when they’re transitioning back to their families, back to their communities and really finding a sense of purpose for themselves,” said Kim Ruocco, whose husband,

On Monday, members of the Legislative Council, a leadership group, praised Jennings for his bipartisanship and advocacy for children and the developmentally disabled.

“I learned a lot from you,” said Senate GOP Leader Stuart Ingle of Portales as Jennings hugged him.

Jennings urged his colleagues to work to control the influence of campaign money from political interest groups that can wage negative attacks against candidates.

“The thing about democracy,” said Jennings, “is it can’t be about hate.” On Tuesday, the House will elect a new top leader. Majority Democrats are expected to rally behind Ken Martinez of Grants to become speaker of the House. He will succeed the late Ben Lujan, who didn’t seek re-election and died last month after a long battle with lung cancer.

Marine Maj. John Ruocco, killed himself between Iraq deployments in 2005. She directs a suicide prevention program for a support group, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, or TAPS. The Army, by far the largest of the military services, had the highest number of suicides among active-duty troops last year at 182, but the Marine Corps, whose suicide numbers had declined for two years, had the largest percentage increase — a 50 percent jump to 48. The Marines’ worst year was 2009’s 52 suicides. The Air Force recorded 59 suicides, up 16 percent from the previous year, and the Navy had 60, up 15 percent. All of the numbers are tentative, pending the completion later this year of formal pathology reports on each case. Suicide prevention has become a high Pentagon priority, yet the problem persists. “If you have a perfect storm of events on the day with somebody who has high risk factors, it’s very difficult to be there every moment, fill every crack, and we just have to continue to be aware of what the risk factors are,” Ruocco said. David Rudd, a military suicide researcher and dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Utah, said he sees two main categories of troops who are committing suicide at an accelerating pace: Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans suffering from depression, post-traumatic stress or substance abuse, and those who have not gone to war but face troubled personal relationships, money problems or legal woes. He is not optimistic about a decline soon. “Actually, we may continue to see increases,” he said.

Gun control Continued from Page A1

ignited a national discussion on preventing mass shootings. The president will unveil a comprehensive roadmap for curbing gun violence within days, perhaps as early as Wednesday. His plan will be based on recommendations from Vice President Joe Biden’s gun task force and is expected to include both legislative proposals and several steps Obama can implement himself using his presidential powers. Biden identified 19 potential executive actions the president could enact on his own, said Jenny Werwa, communications director for California Rep. Jackie Speier, who joined other Democratic House members at a meeting with the vice president Monday. Among the executive actions Biden is believed to have recommended to Obama are tougher penalties for people who lie on background checks, elevating gun trafficking to a felony charge and ending limits that make it harder for the federal government to research gun violence. But the most sweeping and contentious elements — including an assault weapons ban — will require approval from a Congress that has been loath to tackle gun control legislation for more than a decade. The politically powerful NRA has vowed to fight any measure that would limit access to guns and ammunition, a hardline position that could sway some Republicans and conservative Democrats. Despite the opposition, Obama said he would “vigorously

A nonprofit, Community Kitchen, Inc. relies mostly on donations, Knadle said, though it does receive funding from federal grants. However, he said, the amount of funding given gets smaller and smaller every year. “We’ve been so blessed by the people of Roswell and the surrounding areas,” Knadle said.

tiation with a gun at the head of the American people.” Bitter brinkmanship between the White House and congressional Republicans over spending has become a defining event over the past four years, testing both Obama’s leverage and his resolve at different moments of his presidency. House Speaker John Boehner brushed off Obama’s insistence on separating the debt ceiling from negotiations over spending cuts. “The American people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time,” Boehner said. “The consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. Underscoring the urgency, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said in a letter to Boehner on Monday that the government will exhaust its borrowing limit as soon as mid-February, earlier than expected. The Treasury has been using bookkeeping maneuvers to keep from surpassing the debt ceiling, but Geithner said those measures will be exhausted by mid-February to early March. In addition to noting possible effects on older Americans and veterans, Obama recited a litany of possible conse-

him as I try to get out of my garage to get to work, he’s touching me, and he does any or all of the above on any given day. In other words, every day.” Skewing the statistics, the crime is often disguised under other names—domestic dispute, harassment, threats, or, at its worst, assault and battery. In a recent case, a stalking turned into arson as the stalker sought revenge against a woman who had successfully filed not one but several complaints with the police that were upheld in court. In December even though the stalker was in jail, she woke to find her car on fire. Stalkers are looking for some sort of interaction with their victims and will manipulate circumstances to have contact, such as finding or trapping them at a location where they cannot avoid their pursuer. The stalker counts on the victim feeling as if his actions are demonstrations of affection. Perhaps no particular incident stands out as dangerous; however, a pattern emerges and the entire picture alarms. The behaviors escalate. The victim’s personal privacy and personal safety become compromised. At best, it is a form of mental assault, in which the perpetrator repeatedly and disruptively breaks into the victim’s life. The acts have a cumulative effect. Stalkers exert subtle control on the victim. The victim will alter his or her

Motivated Sellers

Nothing warms the cockles of a homebuyer’s heart more than hearing the words “motivated seller.” Sometimes the seller will advertise that information, but usually it takes a skilled Realtor to read between the lines. The big clue is price; often the house is priced at or below market value. Even better, the

owner may be open to negotiations. The seller’s motivation may come from a variety of sources: job relocation, marriage, divorce, or financial problems. It’s up to the buyer to be the first on the spot. Work with your Realtor to get in there and make an offer, then be prepared for a fast escrow.© Give Me a Call Today!

He called the Dec. 14 massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School the worst day of his presidency and vowed to take action. Parents of the slain Connecticut children added their voices to the national dialogue Monday. Members of the newly formed group Sandy Hook Promise called for an open-minded discussion about a range of issues, including guns, mental health and safety in schools and other public places. And lawmakers in New York state pressed ahead with what would be the nation’s first gun control measure approved since the school shootings. Among the items in a tentative agreement in the state Legislature are further restrictions on the state’s ban on assault weapons, limits on the size of magazines to seven bullets, down from the current 10, and more stringent background checks for sales. White House officials believe moving swiftly on gun proposals at a national level, before the shock over the Newtown shooting fades, gives Obama the best chance to get his proposals through Congress. Several pro-gun rights lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said in the days following the shooting that they were open to discussing possible control measures. Obama said Monday that if “everybody across party lines was as deeply moved and saddened as I was by what happened in Newtown, then we’re going to have to vote based on what we think is best.” The millionth meal, a tray including beans and sausage, corn, two types of salad and red velvet cake for dessert, went to Joe Anthony Chaves. Chaves knows the kitchen quite well. Not only does he visit it often, he had once worked there as a dishwasher. “They’re doing a great community service,” he said. “We all appreciate it.” He said the kitchen is an asset to the community and without it, “a lot of people would suffer and not eat.” “They are great cooks and they’re doing great for the community,” he said. “They care about people. They don’t judge.” In addition to being the millionth person served, Chaves also received a Walmart gift card worth $100. igilmore@rdrnews.com

quences if Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling, including sending the economy back into recession.

“We might not be able to pay our troops, or honor our contracts with small business owners,” he said. “Food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear materials wouldn’t get their paychecks. Investors around the world will ask if the United States of America is in fact a safe bet. Markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money. Every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business owner who wants to grow and hire.” At this moment, the government faces three looming deadlines: The debt limit must be raised soon to meet spending obligations and prevent a first-ever default, a series of across-the-board spending cuts is to kick in on March 1, and funding for most government programs will run out on March 27.

After Obama won tax rate increases for wealthier Americans during budget negotiations last month, Republicans became doubly determined to win spending cuts. They see the confluence of events ahead of April 1 as their best opportunity. Just weeks from hitting the first of the deadlines, the two sides are neither on the same page nor pursuing a common approach.

behavior—not answering the phone, changing phone numbers, leaving for work at a different time or driving by a different route—all to avoid the stalker. The victim’s best defense is to record each event. The woman who obtained successful convictions against her stalker got pictures of each incident where he parked outside her place of employment. She took videos each time he followed her. She also got pictures of the license plate, so he could not say it was mistaken identity. If the function is available, experts recommend a date and time stamp, or the victim can take the photos immediately to the police station to be viewed. Collectively the photos indicate the number of incidents. As tempting as it may be, don’t delete telephone records, texts, voice messages and e-mails. Keep them. Record conversations, phone and otherwise, especially if confronting the stalker. These records will illustrate not only the severity of the problem and the number of incidents, but will document the fact that the individual has been informed that the attentions are unwanted. This takes the stalking out of the realm of he said/she said. The victim can obtain a temporary restraining order, but a TRO is subject to some limitations, not the least of which the stalker’s compliance. The temporary restraining order are precisely that, temporary. They only last until the court hearing when they may be extended for a period of up to one year. j.palmer@rdrnews.com

OPINION

Mary Kay Papen best choice for Senate pro tem

During the last legislative session, a female scribe in the press gallery asked me, “Have you ever noticed that the women say what they need to say and sit down, and the men go on and on?” I had noticed. Now, this isn’t true of all legislators. There are a few longwinded women and some men who measure their words. Both chambers have too many lawyers (male) who never tire of exercising their vocal chords, even though everybody else tires of exercising their ear drums. When the session convenes this week, the Senate will have just six women, the smallest number in a decade, because some bowed out and others lost their races. The House gained six women, for a total of 25. So if the initial observation holds, House speeches should be shorter and more to the point. The usual argument about

having more women is that many of the issues af fect us more, but I argue that women do things differently. We’re inclined to be more collaborative and less competitive. A businessman once told me that he preferred to hire women. “They’re more loyal,” he said. “Guys are always working deals on the side.” Other men told me they’d become avid fans of UNM’s Lady Lobo basketball players “because they really play as a team.” Now comes Sen. Mary Kay Papen, D-Las Cruces, who aspires to follow Roswell’s Tim Jennings, a fellow moderate, as

Roswell Daily Record

Senate president pro tem. You’re expecting me to plug Papen because she’s female. Nope. I’m plugging Papen because she’s best suited to the job. At this writing, the contest is still on, and Sen. Pete Campos, D-Las Vegas, was still a contender. One senator in the Papen camp told me, “Google both of them and see who you’d choose.” So I did. Papen looks like a Girl Scout: 2012 State Legislator of the Year Award from the American Psychological Association Practice Organization for supporting mental and behavioral services. Katie’s Hero Award for leadership in solving and preventing crime through forensic DNA technology. And the E for Effort award from the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce for pushing the Space Flight Informed Consent Act. This was only in 2012.

Campos, on the other hand, is the somewhat controversial president of Luna Community College, where rumors waft about poor morale and political hires. With his contract about to expire this year, he reportedly arranged for the LCC board, which is evaluating his performance, to meet for two days, courtesy of taxpayers, at Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino. Here’s another measure. The Association of Commerce and Industry, a statewide business group, used to issue a report card. A lawmaker’s votes with or against the association was a measure of who was on the right side of business issues. For years, Papen, a retired car dealer, scored higher than Campos, but more recently Campos improved his score. This is important in a year when we’re trying to climb out of a deep hole. It’s not a perfect

measure, but it indicates some understanding of what makes the economy tick and what might create jobs. We should also be asking who could best weld diverse interests and work with the gover nor. Well, Papen hails from Las Cruces, and knows the governor well. Now consider a dynamic not often heard north of Socorro: There’s a sense out yonder that the North takes care of the North, and Albuquerque takes care of Albuquerque, and everyone else is left to tread water. Look for a vote not just along ideological lines but along geographical lines. Mary Kay Papen is the woman for the job.

Hit the brakes on new ethanol blend

AAA, formerly the American Automobile Association, has warned that filling gas tanks with a blend of 15 percent ethanol could damage cars and void warranties. This follows 12 carmakers announcing that using the new “E15” blend may either void warranties or that warranties may not cover fuel-related claims. AAA, acting on behalf of its 50 million members, has called for the federal Environmental Protection Agency to temporarily halt sales of the fuel to reevaluate its potential harm. We agree. In addition, ethanol, which is manufactured from grain such as corn, produces questionable, if any, fuel economy benefits. Moreover, the government subsidies and mandates that pave the way for its entry into the market appear to benefit corn growers and ethanol manufacturers more than consumers and the environment. As with other government intrusions into the free market, the EPA’s ethanol love affair distorts supply and demand. If the fuel were beneficial enough on its own, the market would respond. But even in the Midwest, where E15 is more available, sales have not taken off, according to industry observer Dennis Simanaitis, a former Road and Track editor. Gasoline with a 10 percent mixture of ethanol already constitutes 90 percent of the U.S. market, following government approval decades ago. But in June, the EPA approved the sale of the higher percentage mixture, despite cautions from automakers who cited potential damage to vehicles. Private sector resistance has not dissuaded the EPA, which also doesn’t appear to be acting on behalf of motorists, as is the AAA, a federation of 51 independently operated motor clubs. Ethanol was advanced ostensibly as a more environmentally friendly option to 100 percent gasoline. Even that claim by the government has been challenged. In 2006, John A. Baden, chairman of the Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment, argued that ethanol consumes more resources than it saves. That year, Consumer Reports tests using a Chevrolet Tahoe found that an 85-15 blend of gasoline and ethanol decreased, rather than increased, mileage — from 21 mpg highway to 15, and from 9 mpg to 7 in city driving. A later University of Minnesota study found that corn ethanol may be as harmful as gasoline, and an even worse health threat. BMW, Chrysler, Nissan Motor Co., Toyota Motor Corp. and Volkswagen say their warranties will not cover fuel-related claims caused by the use of E15. Ford Motor Co., Honda Motor Co., Hyundai Motor Co., Kia Motors Corp., Mazda Motor Corp., MercedesBenz and Volvo said E15 may void their warranties. We agree with the AAA’s call for pulling E15 off the market until its consequences are better understood. In the meantime, the EPA also should reassess the entire ethanol fuel issue, which likely would not be viable without government mandates for increasing use of so-called renewable fuels and manufacturing subsidies. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: I’m a woman in my 60s who struggles with insomnia. A friend recommended melatonin. What do you think of this and other natural sleep aids? DEAR READER: Many of my patients have trouble with insomnia. Now and then, so do I. There are different types of sleep problems, each treated differently. People can have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep or waking up tired. Like you, some of my patients are interested in natural sleep remedies. The most commonly used herbal sleep aid is valerian root. Some studies suggest that valerian is mildly sedating and can help people fall asleep and improve their sleep quality.

There was a knock at the door. When they answered it, a police officer was standing outside. ... “You are Lin Zhao’s mother? Your daughter has been suppressed.

But the evidence is mixed. An analysis of multiple studies of valerian’s effect on sleep published in 2010 concluded that people fell asleep only about a minute sooner than with a sugar pill. There also is some risk of liver damage from valerian, and some women report headaches after using the herb. I’m not aware of good stud-

Impurities have been found in some herbal preparations that are available over-the-counter. For all these reasons, I don’t recommend valerian. Another popular natural sleep aid is the one you mentioned, melatonin, which is a hormone made in the brain. It influences body temperature, sleep and daily body rhythms (circadian rhythms). The question is whether melatonin taken as a pill can help with sleep. For most types of sleep problems, I don’t think mela-

Mao had expected a “mild rain” of criticism. When a typhoon hit instead, he reversed himself. In Mao’s subsequent AntiRightist Campaign, the party went after those who had accepted Mao’s invitation to speak up. Lin Zhao was the only student at Peking University who refused to “confess.” She was given three years. In 1960,

tonin has been shown in scientific studies to help sleep. Over-the-counter melatonin is sold as a food supplement in the United States, and like valerian, its manufacture is not regulated. One condition where melatonin may help sleep is in older adults. People over 60 with insomnia often have lower levels of nighttime melatonin (as measured in the urine) than those without insomnia. Some studies have found that such people may sleep better if they take melatonin supplements. I would check with a sleep specialist if you’re interested in pursuing this treatment. See DR.

she joined others in a risky gamble to start an underground magazine that was critical of the party. She and her fellow publishers were angry over the reports of mass starvation as a result of the Great Leap Forward — a scheme of Mao’s that drove farmers off the land and into primitive industrial projects. The lost farming productivity led to food shortages and starvation, and the party did nothing but deny it. A colleague of Lin Zhao’s said of the magazine: “We

Books offer lessons on learning new practical skills Roswell Daily Record

LORETTA CLARK ROSWELL PUBLIC LIBRARY

Author Stefan Kiesbye will be visiting the Roswell Public Library on Saturday at 2 p.m. to read from his new book “Your House Is on Fire, Your Children All Gone.” To add to the mood, Stefan will play music along with his reading. This program is for teens and adults. In the book, a group of childhood friends return to their small German village for a funeral, setting off a collection of stories culled from their suppressed memories about the extraordinary things which happened to the villagers 40 years earlier. Some are tinged with the supernatural: a traveling carnival worker hints at mysterious origins; an annual cooking contest ends badly. Others are truly horrifying: incest, child murder and a father’s brutal act of violence that leaves permanent scars. Too subtle to be lurid yet too spooky for comfort, this book should appeal to readers of psychological fiction and literary tales of the supernatural. Stefan is as an associate professor at ENMU in Portales teaching creative writing. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Library. The Roswell Public Library, 301 N. Pennsylvania Ave., is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

were certain we would be punished for doing it. But we felt we had to do it. Somebody had to stand up. If nobody dared to speak out, there would be no hope for the nation.” In 1999, a man named Hu Jie, a cameraman and producer for Xinhua, the government’s official news agency, learned of the life of Lin Zhao and began pondering it as a subject for a film. A month later, he was fired — which solidified his commitment to the project. Hu was encouraged when he discovered a surprisingly bold 1998 article published in Southern Weekend, a newspaper in Guangdong province. The article described Lin Zhao as “a hero who 40 years ago insisted on the truth without fear of those with power.” Pan noted in his book that it was perhaps the first time in nearly 20 years that Lin Zhao’s name had appeared in a Chinese newspaper, and “it couldn’t have been easy for the editors at Southern Weekend to slip it in.” The editors at Southern Weekend still are doing bold things today. The paper’s editors and reporters erupted in protest last week when the top Communist Party propaganda official in Guangdong province rewrote a New Year’s Day editorial calling for enforcement of constitutional rights; it turned into an editorial praising the Communist Party. The move triggered a backlash from students, intellectuals and journalists and raised calls nationwide for free press and political reform. The central propaganda

If melatonin and valerian root don’t help, you can try alternative approaches. However, their track record is less established. Acupressure appears promising. In acupressure, pressure is placed on acupuncture points without needles. Tai chi and yoga may help you fall asleep faster and improve your quality of sleep. Both have the added benefits of promoting mental relaxation as well as muscle relaxation. Meditation may help as a calming and relaxing technique as well.

Robert Briggs, circulation supervisor, suggests that instead of ditching your resolutions, check out the resources of the library for books providing information pertaining to your particular goals and aspirations. For example, the following titles represent learning new skills with a practical use. Sock yarn is fingering or sportweight yarn designed to make a durable fabric soft enough to wear next to the skin. Carol J. Sulcoski’s “Sock Yarn Studio: Hats, Garments and Other Projects Designed for Sock Yarn” features 27 non-sock projects. This is not a learn how to knit book, but the patterns are easy to follow and the pictures help to inspire a knitter to keep up with projects. This book is great for those who want to learn to create something a little unique for their wardrobe. Canning, smoking and pickling food may seem like a lost art to those living in the world of microwaves ovens and fast food joints, but those skills are preserved in the stacks of the library. Matthew Weingarten and Raquel Pelzel focus on a wide range of wild ingredients foraged from the sea, fields, forests and fresh water in their book “Preserving Wild Foods: a Modern Forager’s Recipes for Curing, Canning, Smoking, and Pickling.” The instructions are clear and as easy to follow as any other cookbook, and an explanation is given to each method of food

preservation so that readers can fully understand each process. There are even ways shown to prepare unconventional food items such as dandelions, wild fennel pollen and Irish moss. Saving money is one of the most common resolutions people make, but it can be hard to save money in a house full of spenders. “The Money Smart Family System: Teaching Financial Independence to Children of Every Age,” by Steve and Annette Economides will help parents provide practical advice to their families about money and will help kids learn to become responsible spenders and savers. This book will teach readers about interest, instilling a work ethic into children and recreation with a limited budget. There are also sections about time management, giving and sharing and setting goals. This book is great at making a family into a well rounded and responsible group of individuals.

officials in Beijing responded by forcing papers — including Beijing News — to run an editorial attacking Southern Weekend. One journalist from Beijing News blogged: “We don’t want to kneel down. ... We are kneeling down this one time while gnashing our teeth.” Lin Zhao was sentenced to 20 years for her role in publishing the underground magazine. In prison, she continued to shout out her protests until prison officials forced her to wear a helmet that covered everything but her eyes to muffle the sound of her shouts. After a time, officials recommended that she be executed, citing her practice of “insanely attacking, cursing and slandering our great Chinese Communist Party and our great leader Chairman Mao.” Lin Zhao was very ill and spitting up blood in the prison hospital when they came for her. “Incorrigible counterrevolutionary, your judgment day has arrived!” they shouted at her, and then they took her — not even allowing her to change out of her hospital gown. She went calmly, asking the nurse to say goodbye to the doctor. She left behind hundreds of pages of passionate, defiant passages, written from prison in her own blood. Among those words she first wrote after receiving her sentence of 20 years: “Justice will prevail! Long live freedom!” Maybe someday.

William Spencer

William “Dub” Jefferson Spencer was born in Marlow, Okla., on Sept. 24, 1912, to George Washington Spencer and his wife Emma Rhodes Spencer. He married a Texas girl, Bernice Roberts, Jan. 25, 1936, in Lawton, Okla. In 1937, the young couple

moved to Roswell looking for employment. He led a quiet, solitary life after the death of his wife Bernice in 1992. He worked as a far mer, carpenter, and became a certified auto mechanic who you could always trust, employed at Durham Ford until his retirement in 1976. He shares his birth year with the birth of our state New Mexico; the first anniversary of the NASCAR 500 races and the release of the first silent movie, “The Keystone Cops.” During his long lifespan of 100 years and 3 months, he has known of Pancho Villa’s raids, the development of nuclear bombs in Los Alamos and some terrible things, too, such as two world wars, The Great Depression, the Dust Bowl and the assassination of a president. He always said he had the best hobby in the world: fishing, fishing and fishing. Fishing was better than eating or sleeping. He loved to travel in his motorhome and enjoyed seeing forests, wild flowers, lakes, mountains and unusual rock formations. As you can see, he loved the outdoors. His surviving family includes a single son Nolen Lee Spencer and his wife Aderan; two grandchildren, Dawn L ynne Lepisto and her husband Tom, Renetta Lee Burson and her husband Jay; two great-grandchildren, Jon Hudson Burson IV and Lindsey Lee Lepisto; one great-greatgranddaughter A yrisLee Geneva Lepisto, who was the apple of his eye. He usually had jelly beans and orange slices waiting for her visit. We will all miss this gentleman. Our whole family extends its appreciation to all the staf f at Mission Arch Care Center for their loving care and passionate attention of W.J. Spencer. Arrangements are being directed by the professionals at LaGrone Funeral Chapel. The viewing will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, from 3 to 7 p.m. The graveside service will be held at South Park Cemetery on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013, at 2 p.m. His life celebration will be officiated by Pastor Rick Hale of Grace Community Church.

‘Argo,’ ‘Les Mis’ win at Golden Globes

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Ben Affleck got some vindication and Jodie Foster made a revelation at the Golden Globe Awards. Affleck’s “Argo” earned him best motion picture drama and director honors at Sunday night’s ceremony. The awards came just a few days after Affleck was surprisingly omitted from the best-director category at the Academy Award nominations. Affleck also stars in the real-life drama as the CIA operative who orchestrated a daring rescue of six American embassy employees during the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. These wins seem to shake up the Oscar race, in which Steven Spielberg’s stately, historical epic “Lincoln” was looking like a juggernaut. Despite seven Golden Globe nominations, “Lincoln” earned just one award: best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis’ intense, richly detailed portrayal of Abraham Lincoln as he fought for passage of the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery. Spielberg’s film heads into the Feb. 24 Academy Awards with a leading 12 nominations. The other big winner of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s honors was “Les Miserables.” Based on the international musical sensation and Victor Hugo’s novel of strife and redemption in 19th century France, it won best picture musical or comedy, best actor for Hugh Jackman and best supporting actress for Anne Hathaway. But perhaps the biggest news of the night was from Foster, who came out without really coming out and suggested she was retiring from acting but then backpedaled a bit backstage. Foster was this year’s recipi-

ent of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, which is announced beforehand and is usually a pretty respectful and predictable part of the evening. But the 50-year -old Oscar -winner for “The Silence of the Lambs” and “The Accused,” who’s been protective of her private life and reluctant to discuss her sexual orientation, used this opportunity to speak from the heart in a rambling and emotional speech that confirmed what long had been an open secret. The veteran actress seized control of what is every year a noisy, boozy ballroom; the crowd of A-listers quickly quieted down as it became apparent that she had something serious and important to say. She was coy at first, suggesting she had a big announcement that would make her publicist nervous. (At this point, the audio inexplicably dropped out of the NBC broadcast, even though nothing off-color was said.) Then she stated: “I’m just going to put it out there, loud and proud ... I am, uh, single,” pausing for dramatic effect before that last word. “I hope you’re not disappointed that there won’t be a big coming-out speech tonight. I already did my coming-out about a thousand years ago back in the Stone Age.” She also made it sound as if this would be her last time on stage, but clarified for reporters afterward: “I could never stop acting. You’d have to drag me behind a team of horses. I’d like to be directing tomorrow. I’m more into it than I have ever been.” Among the other multiple winners of the night, “Django Unchained,” Quentin

Tarantino’s spaghetti Western-blaxploitation mashup, earned two awards: for supporting actor Christoph Waltz as a charismatic bounty hunter and for Tarantino’s script. The writer-director thanked his friends for letting him read scenes to them as he works through his scripts. “Zero Dark Thirty,” which also has been a major contender throughout awards season, earned Jessica Chastain a best-actress Globe for her portrayal of a driven CIA operative at the center of the hunt for Osama bin Laden. That film’s director, Kathryn Bigelow, also was left out of the best-director category at the Academy Awards even though it’s up for best picture — a result of having nine best-picture nominees and only five best-director slots. On the television side, “Game Change” and “Homeland” were the big winners

with three awards apiece. “Game Change,” the madefor-HBO movie about 2008 vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, won for best motion picture or miniseries made for television, best actress for Julianne Moore and best supporting actor for Ed Harris’ portrayal of John McCain. “Homeland” was named best TV drama series, and its stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis received the dramatic acting awards. Co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, longtime friends and collaborators, had playfully snarky fun with several members of the audience including Taylor Swift, Day-Lewis, Bigelow and even former President Bill Clinton, who arrived on stage to rock-star applause when he introduced “Lincoln” as one of the best-picture nominees. Fey and Poehler were also competing against each other for best actress in a TV

comedy series, Fey for “30 Rock” and Poehler for “Parks and Recreation.” Neither won. Lena Dunham claimed the comedy series Globe for “Girls.” After that, Fey and Poehler showed up on stage with cocktail glasses, with Fey joking that it was time

to start drinking. “Everyone’s getting a little loose now that we’re all losers,” Poehler said. Poehler’s final words also referred back to the biggest moment of the night. She cracked as she was signing off: “We’re going home with Jodie Foster!”

KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

Wins have been hard to come by for the NMMI men’s basketball team this season. Entering Monday’s affair with visiting Frank Phillips at the Cahoon Armory, the Broncos had just four wins in 15 games. Thanks to some solid shooting from the field, a decided rebounding edge and some clutch free throws by Desmond Barnes, the Broncos now have five victories. They held off the Plainsmen 84-80 to move to 5-11 overall and 1-2 in WJCAC play. “We were due for one,” said Bronco coach Sean Schooley. “The way we did it was a team effort. “Anytime you can get a win with a young group like

this, in this league, I’ll take it anywhere I possibly can.” The Broncos connected on 30 of their 62 field-goal attempts on the night, outshooting the Plainsmen by nearly 10 percentage points. NMMI also outrebounded FPC by 17, 42-25. Still, they had to stave off a second-half rally after letting FPC back into the game. NMMI led by as many as 12 in the first half and had a double-digit lead four different times in the second half. The last of those doubleSee FIFTH, Page B3

JAL — Jal outscored the Lady Panthers 13-5 in the opening quarter and then won the third 14-6 en route to a 4527 win over Lake Arthur, Monday. “The first half, we came out pretty well,” said Panther coach Jordon Cooney. “The game was won underneath on the boards and we didn’t do a very good job of boxing out and getting defensive rebounds. “We gave (Jal) too many second-chance opportunities.” Mayra Davila led the Panthers (1-6) with eight points.

NATIONAL BRIEFS BROWNS CLOSE TO DEAL FOR NAMING RIGHTS TO STADIUM

The Cleveland Browns are close to selling naming rights for their stadium to an energy company based in Akron, Ohio, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Monday. The deal with FirstEnergy Corp. could be announced as early as Tuesday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team and the company haven’t discussed it publicly. The Plain Dealer first reported the negotiations with FirstEnergy, which is a sponsor for numerous professional sports teams, including Cleveland’s Browns, Indians and Cavaliers. Former Browns owner Randy Lerner declined to sell naming rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium, which opened on the shore of Lake Erie in 1999 when the team was reintroduced as an expansion franchise. Art Modell moved his team to Baltimore after the 1996 season. The deal could bring millions to new owner Jimmy Haslam, who bought the Browns from Lerner for around $1 billion last October. When he acquired the team, Haslam said he was open to selling naming rights. “While we remain committed to partnering with local community leaders and businesses to make our communities attractive places to live and work, we have no new announcements regarding any major sponsorships at this time,” FirstEnergy said in a statement. The Browns formerly played at Cleveland Stadium, which was razed after Modell moved the franchise to Baltimore and renamed it the Ravens. The 73,000-seat Cleveland Browns Stadium was built on site and has never had naming rights. The Cincinnati Bengals also have resisted selling name rights for the other NFL stadium in Ohio, which is called Paul Brown Stadium after the team’s founder and the former Browns coach.

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan (2) throws a pass over Seattle defender Marcus Trufant during the Falcons’ win over the Seahawks in the NFC divisional playoffs, Sunday.

ATLANTA (AP) — Matt Ryan won’t have to answer that question anymore. Neither will Tony Gonzalez. They’re both playoff winners. Finally. Ryan got over the postseason hump in his fifth season, guiding the Atlanta Falcons to an improbable comeback in the final half-minute for a 30-28 victory over the gritty Seattle Seahawks in an NFC divisional game Sunday. If R yan was feeling relief, imagine what was going through Gonzalez’s mind. The

16-year veteran, in what is likely the final season of a Hall of Fame career, removed the only blotch from his brilliant record with his first playof f win. No wonder he broke down in tears when it was over. “I’ve cried after a loss. But never a win,” said Gonzalez, who had been 0-5 in the postseason. “I thought it was over. Sixteen years. Six playof f games. I was like, ‘Here we go again.’ Especially with that big lead. I thought it just wasn’t meant to be.”

Lance admits doping

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey during an interview Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey’s network. Armstrong was stripped of all seven Tour titles last year following a voluminous U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that portrayed him as a ruthless competitor, willing to go to any lengths to win the

The Falcons (14-3) led 20-0 at halftime, and were still up 27-7 going to the fourth quarter. No team had ever blown such a daunting lead in the final period of a playoff game. But the Seahawks, led by Russell Wilson, nearly pulled off a historic win. Wilson passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, then led a drive that looked like the game winner. He completed three passes for 50 yards, the last of them a short throw to

Rick Pitino is guessing his Louisville Cardinals won’t be the last team to be No. 1 this season. The Cardinals took advantage of losses by Duke and Michigan to move up two spots to No. 1 on Monday in The Associated Press’ Top 25 poll. This is just the second time in school history they’re on top. The other time was the final poll of 2008-09, a season in which they reached the final eight of the NCAA tournament. Louisville (15-1) was one of five teams to receive a first-place vote this week, and that backs Pitino’s point. “I think the top teams will play musical chairs for No. 1 for the next two months and it will be really significant at the end of the year,” Pitino said Monday, hours before the Cardinals took their No. 1 ranking into a game at Connecticut. “We played a tough nonconference schedule and I’m really happy the way our guys have battled through injuries. We’ll try to hold the musical top as long as we can.” The Cardinals, who have won 10 straight since losing to Duke in the finals of the Battle 4 Atlantis, received 36 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel. That’s 23 more than Indiana, which moved up from fifth. Indiana was No. 1 in the preseason poll and for the first five weeks of the regular season. Duke, which was No. 1 for the last four weeks, was third with 14 No. 1 votes. The Blue Devils were followed by Kansas and Michigan, which drew one first-place vote each. Four teams entered the week unbeaten: Duke, Michigan, then-No. 4 Arizona and unranked Wyoming and they all took their first loss. It was the first time three of the top four teams lost in the same week since

prestigious race. USADA chief executive Travis Tygart labeled the doping regimen allegedly carried out by the U.S. Postal Service team that Armstrong once led, “The most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.” After a federal investigation of the cyclist was dropped without charges being brought last year, USADA stepped in with an investigation of its own. The agency deposed 11 former teammates and accused Armstrong of masSee ADMITS, Page B3

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady made history. Now it’s his coach’s turn. The Patriots’ quarterback added to a string of postseason success that stretches back more than a decade, earning his 17th playoff win to break a tie with his boyhood idol, Joe Montana, for most by a quarterback. After New England’s 4128 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night, Bill Belichick needs two more playoff wins to match Tom Landry’s NFL high of 20. If Belichick gets there this season he’d also tie Chuck Noll for most Super Bowl championships by a coach with four. First, the Baltimore Ravens stand in the way next Sunday in a rematch of last year’s AFC title game. “Right now our focus is just (being) happy to win this game and get on to Baltimore,” Belichick said. “We can reflect back on some other years some other time.” See BACK, Page B3

Champion Djokovic charms Australian Open crowd

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic had a big, adoring crowd at Rod Laver Arena, and he knew exactly how to work it. Writing “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie” on a live TV camera lens with a felt-tip pen was the perfect way to sign off after his 15th consecutive win at the Australian Open. Having the confidence to charm a crowd of thousands comes with experience — he has won the last two Australian titles and is aiming to be the first man in the Open era to win three in succession. “Hello, everybody, it’s great to be back,” he said after his 6-2, 64, 7-5 win over Paul-Henri Mathieu of France, his first match at Melbourne Park since his epic five-set win over Rafael Nadal in last year’s final. “I have great memories. ... Twelve months ago, played a six-hour final. Thanks for coming and supporting me.” David Ferrer, who took the No. 4 seeding when fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal withdrew because of illness and injury, had only a couple of hundred people watching in cavernous Hisense Arena on Day One at Melbourne Park. He opened with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 victory over Olivier Rochus of Belgium. Ferrer knows that without his compatriot in the draw, there’s a semifinal spot up for grabs, but he’s content to stay under the radar. “Of course, Novak, Roger and Rafael and Murray — they’ve won Grand Slams. It’s very difficult for

(another) player to win the first Grand Slam of his career. For me, I am trying to do my best.” The four majors in 2012 were shared by Djokovic, Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray, the Scotsman who finally ended the 76-year drought for British men at the Grand Slam events by winning the U.S. Open. With Nadal out, the so called ‘Big 4’ has become the ‘Big 3,’ with nobody else in the top 10 given a realistic chance of winning. Djokovic doesn’t have another Grand Slam winner in his half of the draw after his Serbian Davis Cup teammate Janko Tipsarevic ousted Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt, a former U.S. Open and Wimbledon winner, in a night match. “If you want my opinion, it’s that the top four, they are better,” Ferrer said. “The last years, they were in all the semifinals and finals.” Federer, who has four Australian titles among his 17 majors, and Murray, who broke his Grand Slam drought by winning the U.S. Open, have their first-round matches Tuesday in what shapes as a blockbuster day session at Rod Laver Arena. Murray is against Robin Haase in the first match and Federer is against Benoit Paire of France in the third — women’s champion Victoria Azarenka takes in Monica Niculescu of Romania in between. Congestion on center court means Serena Williams, the big favorite to win the women’s title, monwealth, No. 24 UCLA and No. 25 Marquette. It is VCU’s first ranking since the 1984-85 season. Oregon is back in for the first time since 2007-08. Marquette was ranked last season and UCLA, which was No. 13 in the preseason poll, is back after being out for the last seven weeks. They replaced Georgetown, Cincinnati, Wichita State and UNLV, who all lost once last week.

Djokovic won 6-2, 6-4, 7-5. will play her first-round match at Hisense Arena against Romania’s Edina Gallovits-Hall, who is ranked No. 110. Williams had a good look at the setting Monday, sitting in the stands with her coach Patrick Mouratoglou to watch older sister Venus win her opening match. Serena, who is ranked No. 3 and has won 35 of her last 36 matches including titles at Wimbledon, the Olympics and the U.S. Open, had left long before Ferrer was to play the third match at Hisense. The 30-year-old Spaniard drew polite applause rather than raucous cheering from the small crowd in a match punctuated by long periods of silence. Four American men advanced Monday, led by No. 20 Sam Querrey, the highest-ranked U.S. man in the tournament after John Isner pulled out with an injury. Querry beat Daniel Munoz-de la Nava of Spain 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-2, 64. Brian Baker fended off Russia’s

NJ police want to interview Titans TE Kenny Britt

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Police in Jersey City say they’ve been trying to contact Tennessee Titans wide receiver and former Rutgers star Kenny Britt to question him about an incident Sunday in which he allegedly drove a friend to the hospital after the man had been stabbed at a party. Capt. Edgar Martinez says police need to interview everyone who was present at a Jersey City house party Sunday in which someone fired a gun through a first floor window and Britt’s friend was stabbed. No one was struck in the shooting, Martinez said. “We need to interview all the parties involved, and (Britt) has refused to come in, so the statements that he’s putting out that he’s cooperated with the investigation are false. We’re trying to ascertain his location,” Martinez said, adding that authorities are discussing their next steps with the Hudson County Prosecutor’s office. “There was a stabbing and a shooting in the same incident — and we need to speak to everyone who was there,” Martinez said. “(Britt) drove the guy to the hospital. (Britt) was at a dinner, the party, with his pregnant girlfriend.” Britt’s agent, Bill Johnson, did not immediately respond to an email from the AP. The Titans also had no immediate comment Monday. NFL officials will be looking into this latest incident involving Britt and police.

Henley gets PGA Tour career off to record start

HONOLULU (AP) — Russell Henley only felt like a rookie at the Sony Open. He sure didn’t play like one. He was so nervous Sunday afternoon that he couldn’t feel his arms and legs, and everything around him seemed to be moving

is as tough as it gets, knowing that he plays really good tennis here, knowing that he won Kooyong last week,” he said. “I cannot tell you how happy that I am.” The first two women’s matches were over quickly, with No. 2ranked Maria Sharapova finishing off a 6-0, 6-0 win over Olga Puchkova in 55 minutes. She showed no signs of discomfort from a right collarbone injury that ruled her out of a tuneup tournament in Brisbane. Sharapova has a potential third-round match against Venus Williams, who needed just an hour for her opening 6-1, 6-0 win over Galina Voskoboeva of Kazakhstan. No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 6 Li Na, No. 9 Samantha Stosur, No. 11 Marion Bartoli and No. 13 Ana Ivanovic all won in straight sets, and 17-year -old American Madison Keys joined them in the second round when she beat Casey Dellacqua of Australia 6-4, 7-6 (0).

at warp speed. Only when he finished his record-setting performance with one last birdie did he realize what happened. And even then, he didn’t know what to say. The first player in 10 years to win in his debut as a PGA Tour rookie. The second-best score for a 72-hole tournament in PGA Tour history, and a record score at the Sony Open by four shots. Finishing with five straight birdies — only one of them inside 10 feet — for a 29 on the back nine and a 7-under 63, the lowest finish by a Sony Open winner. And yes, that tee time reserved for him at the Masters in April. “I’m pretty speechless,” Henley said. “I was trying not to think about Augusta out there because I just kept telling myself, ‘This is a long year, you’re going to play this game a long time, and be patient, it doesn’t have to happen now.’ Everything I could to psyche myself out of thinking about winning. It worked.” The back nine was simply surreal. Henley won by three shots over Tim Clark, who birdied seven of his last 11 holes and still made up only one shot on the rookie from Georgia. “When you get up close and watch a guy play ... if that’s how he putts all the time, whew! It’s over,” Clark said. And it was. Tied for the lead with fellow rookie Scott Langley to start the final round, Henley seized control with a birdie on the opening hole and then poured it on at the end. Henley had a two-shot lead with seven holes to play when he calmly sank a 10-foot par putt on the 12th, and he began to pull away with a 45-foot birdie putt on the 14th. When the rookie rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt on the 17th to stay three shots ahead, Clark started laughing. There wasn’t anything else he could do. “He just never seemed to put a foot wrong, and when he did, he made those par putts,” Clark said. “That’s when you know a guy is comfortable, when he’s making those 8- to 10-footer for par. But I still got on the 15th hole and said, ‘Well, let’s finish with four birdies and see what happens.’ And sure enough, he birdied the last four, too. When a guy plays that well and beats you, you just have to be happy for them.” Henley finished at 24-under 256, breaking by four shots the Sony Open scoring record held by Brad Faxon in 2001 and John Huston in 1998. It was the second-lowest score for a 72-hole tournament in PGA Tour history, two shots behind Tommy Armour III in 2003 at the Texas Open. And that wasn’t the only mark Henley left on Waialae Country Club. He set tournament records for the low 36-hole score after his 63-63 start, he shared the 54-hole record with Langley and set another tournament record with the lowest final round by a champion. Welcome to the big leagues, kid. He became the first PGA Tour rookie to win his debut since Garrett Willis in the 2001 Tucson Open, which was held the same week as the winners-only event in Kapalua. And the way he putts, there’s no telling where this will lead.

Nike announces sponsorship deal with McIlroy Roswell Daily Record

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are on the same team now — at least when it comes to sponsorship. McIlroy officially made the switch to the swoosh on Monday as Nike confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in golf, announcing it had signed a multi-year deal with the top-ranked Northern Irishman. The deal means Nike now has golf’s two biggest names representing its brand, as Woods has been with the sportswear company since tur ning pro in 1996. Nike did not disclose any financial details of the deal, but industry observers have estimated that McIlroy will be paid up to $20 million a year to use the company’s equipment and apparel. The partnership with McIlroy was announced in a lavish ceremony in the United Arab Emirates ahead of this week’s Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, where he will use the company’s equipment for the first time. The event opened with a hologram of McIlroy swinging a club and included a video showing Woods, Roger Federer and Wayne Rooney welcoming him to Nike. “Rory is an extraordinary athlete who creates enormous excitement with his on-course per for mance while, at the same time connecting with fans everywhere,” said Cindy Davis, president of Nike Golf. “He is the epitome of a Nike Athlete, and he is joining our team during the most

Marshawn L ynch that the bruising runner took all the way to the Falcons 3. The rookie quarterback made it all possible with his legs, spinning away from blitzing linebacker Sean Weatherspoon to give himself extra time to throw. On the next play, after the rattled Falcons were penalized for too many players on the field, Lynch powered over from the 2 to give the Seahawks (12-6) their first lead of the day, 28-27 with 31 seconds remaining. The Falcons could’ve packed it in right there, but R yan and Gonzalez went back to work. First, Ryan hit a deep pass to Harry Douglas right in front of the Atlanta bench, a 22-yard completion to midfield. Then, with one timeout remaining, Ryan went to Gonzalez on a 19-yard throw over the middle. The Falcons quickly stopped the clock again, and Matt Bryant connected on a 49-yard field goal with 8 seconds left for the victory. Atlanta will host the NFC championship game for the first time next Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, another team that features a mobile quarterback. The defense hopes that facing Wilson will help prepare for Colin Kaeper nick, who passed for 263 yards and rushed for 181 — a playoff record for a quarterback — in a 45-31 victory over Green Bay. “Russell Wilson and Colin Kaeper nick are mobile quarterbacks who

exciting time in Nike Golf’s history. We are looking forward to partnering with him to take his remarkable career to the next level.” McIlroy said he was “really excited” to start the season and insisted he has made a “seamless” adjustment to his new equipment, especially his driver. “As soon as I hit it, I knew it was going in the bag straight away,” McIlroy said. “It blew me away. My ball speed was up. My numbers were good. I’m hitting it further. I thought throw the ball at extremely accurate levels,” Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud said. “We can use this game as a cheat sheet to prepare for next week.” The Falcons overcame their reputation for choking in the playoffs, winning their first postseason game since the 2004 season. “Nobody flinched,” Ryan said. “We just kept battling, kept doing what we do. That’s been the makeup of our team all season.” R yan came into the game with an 0-3 mark in the playoffs, including a crushing loss to Green Bay two years ago when the Falcons were in the same position, the NFC’s top-seeded team with home-field advantage in the playoffs. Bryant made his third game-winning kick of the season. But he’d never made one like this, with so much on the line. “When they scored their touchdown, I walked down (the sideline),” he said. “I told the offensive line, I told Matt (R yan), I told all the receivers, ‘We’ve done this before.”’ Wilson finished with 385 yards passing and led the Seahawks in rushing with 60 yards on seven carries, an even better performance than the one that carried Seattle to an opening-round victory over Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. Not quite enough this time. “We had high, high hopes for the rest of the season,” Wilson said. “When the game was over, I was very disappointed. But walking

figure leads came at 74-64 with less than six minutes left in the game. FPC trimmed that lead down to three with a 13-6 run, the final three coming on free throws with 12 seconds left from Ronald Scott. Barnes nailed a pair at the line after being fouled on the ensuing inbounds to push the lead right back to five.

I hit it far before but this is taking to new level. That’s great.” McIlroy’s switch to Nike had been widely expected. In October, McIlroy cut ties with Acushnet Co., which had supplied him with Titleist and FootJoy gear since he tur ned pro five years ago. And this month, Jumeirah Group announced it was not renewing its five-year sponsorship deal with the Northern Irishman. McIlroy insisted he’s not making the switch because

back into the tunnel, I got so excited about next year. The resilience we showed was unbelievable.” A botched squib kick by the Falcons gave Seattle the ball at its own 46 and a chance at one more comeback. But Wilson threw a short pass that only picked up 6 yards, forcing a desperation heave into the end zone on the final play. Falcons receiver Julio Jones, who had practiced for just such a situation during the week, went in on defense and leaped up to make the interception, leaving Atlanta one win away from the second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. R yan had a couple of interceptions, but threw three touchdown passes, tying a Falcons playoff record. He completed 24 of 35 for 250 yards — the first time he’s eclipsed 200 yards in the postseason. The scoring passes were 1-yarder to Gonzalez, who made a leaping grab in the back of the end zone; a 47-yarder to Roddy White that stretched the lead to 20-0 late in the second quarter; and a 5-yarder to Jason Snelling, a quick throw after a fake pitch to Jones, gave the Falcons a seemingly comfortable edge late in the third period. Wilson took over from there, running 1 yard for a touchdown to make it 27-14, then going to Zach Miller on a 3-yard touchdown pass that closed the gap to 27-21. Ryan’s second interception, an ill-advised deep throw into double coverage, helped keep the Seahawks alive.

Scott drained a triple from the right wing for FPC on the next possession, but Barnes again knocked down a pair at the line to ice the game for the Broncos. “I’m proud of the guys,” Schooley said. “(Our) guys needed this, they really did.” Barnes was one of four Broncos in double digits with 13 points. Ta’Jay Henry pitched in a double-double with 23 points and 17 boards, Eric Edwards poured in 18 points and Najee Whitehead had 14 points. Scott led the Plainsmen with 20 points. kjkeller@rdrnews.com

of the money. “I don’t play golf for the money, I am well past that,” McIlroy said. “I’m a major champion and world No. 1, which I have always dreamed of being, and feel this is a company that can help me sustain that and win even more major titles. At the end of 2013, if I have not won another major I will be disappointed.” The deal comes in the wake of a career year for McIlroy, in which he became No. 1 and won his second major. He insisted

in an interview with The Associated Press that all the attention hasn’t rattled him and that he has struck the “right balance,” although he acknowledged it took some time getting used to the top ranking. “I guess when I first got to No. 1 after Honda, I might have struggled with it for a few weeks,” said McIlroy, who temporarily relinquished the title to Luke Donald before finishing the year at the top. “It was a big goal of mine going into last year trying

Sunday was Brady’s day to reach a milestone. His first postseason win came in the 2001 season, which ended with his first Super Bowl title. Now he’s guiding the NFL’s most productive offense into his sixth AFC championship game in his 13 seasons. “He’s our leader and we all follow him,” said Belichick, the team’s real leader. “We all respect him and he led the team today, along with a lot of other guys. But he certainly did his job, as he’s done many times before.” It won’t take Belichick long to put Sunday’s victory out of his mind, impressive as it was. Brady also is ready to move on to the next challenge. “I think the two best teams are in the finals,” he said. “Baltimore certainly deserves to be here and so do we, so it’s fitting.” The Texans (13-5) certainly don’t after losing four of their last six games, starting with a 42-14 rout by the Patriots (134) on Dec. 10 on the same field where their season ended. “There’s no good landing in this business unless you’re playing a few weeks from now,” Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. “Other than that, the landing’s a crash.” Brady threw for three scores and 344 yards and seldom-used running back Shane Vereen, seeing more action because Danny Woodhead hurt his thumb on the Patriots’ first offensive play, had three touchdowns. Wes Welker had eight catches for a career postsea-

terminding a complex and brazen drug program that included steroids, blood boosters and a range of other per for manceenhancers. A group of about 10 close friends and advisers to Armstrong left a downtown Austin hotel about three hours after they arrived Monday afternoon for the taping. Among them were Armstrong attorneys Tim Herman and Sean Breen, along with Bill Stapleton, Ar mstrong’s longtime agent, manager and business partner. All declined comment entering and exiting the session. Soon afterward, Winfrey tweeted: “Just wrapped with (at)lancear mstrong More than 2 1⁄2 hours.

to get that. I probably achieved it a bit faster than I thought I would,” he said. “(Then) I sort of didn’t have a goal. I was like, ‘what’s next?’ I had to reassess. It was a good lesson for me. Now that I’ve got back to No. 1, I felt I handled it a lot better.” McIlroy and Woods have already developed a friendly rivalry lately, and they will likely be seen together even more often from now on. Nike already unveiled a new commercial entitled “No Cup is Safe” that begins running Wednesday featuring McIlroy and Woods on the driving range — with each trying to outdo the other. The players first take tur n aiming at the driving range hole and then start hitting more spectacular targets, with balls going into wine glasses at a wedding and a soup bowl in a restaurant. It ends with McIlroy picking up his water glass to find Woods’ golf ball. “How did you do that?” McIlroy asks. Woods retorts: “You’ll learn.” McIlroy said the two have a mutual respect for each other, but that it’s too soon to say they have a real rivalry on the course. “I don’t know if you can call it a rivalry yet because we haven’t battled each other down the stretch of a major,” McIlroy told the AP. “It’s not like we have been playing in the final group of a tournament and we are battling each other. Hopefully at some point that can happen this year and it would be great to be part of that.”

son-high 131 yards and the defense held Arian Foster to 90 yards rushing, his first sub-100-yard playoff game in the four he’s had. The Patriots also overcame the loss of tight end Rob Gronkowski, who broke the left arm he originally broke on Nov. 18 in a 59-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts and needs season-ending surgery, a person with knowledge of the injury told The Associated Press. “It’s a bummer to lose anybody,” Brady said, “but someone of Rob’s importance or Danny’s importance, we need guys to step in and fill the void, whether it’s this game or any game after.” Gronkowski missed the first game against the Texans, one of five he sat out after his first injury, and it didn’t matter. The Texans were more competitive on Sunday and trailed only 17-13 at halftime as Foster scored on a 1-yard run and Shayne Graham kicked a 55-yard field goal in the last 1:11 before intermission. But the Patriots scored on two of their first three series in the third quarter on Stevan Ridley’s 8-yard run and Brady’s 5-yard pass to Brandon Lloyd that made it 31-13. Lloyd scored just six plays after Rob Ninkovich ended a Houston threat with an interception that gave New England the ball at its 37-yard line. The Patriots needed just one play after taking over on downs early in the fourth quarter, scoring on an outstanding overthe-shoulder catch by Vereen for a 33yard touchdown and a 38-13 advantage. The third-string back finished with 124 total yards — 83 on five receptions and 41 on seven carries.

Tuesday to discuss the interview. In a text to the AP on Saturday, Armstrong said: “I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I’ll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That’s all I can say.” Armstrong stopped at the Livestrong Foundation, which he founded, on his way to the interview and said, “I’m sorry” to staff members, some of whom broke down in tears. A person with knowledge of that session said Ar mstrong choked up and several employees cried during the session. The person also said Armstrong apologized for letting the staff down and putting Livestrong at risk but he did not make a direct confession to using banned drugs. He said he would try to restore the foundation’s reputation, and urged the group to continue fighting for the charity’s mission of helping

cancer patients and their families. Ar mstrong spoke to a room full of about 100 staff members for about 20 minutes, expressing regret for everything the controversy has put them through, the person said. He told them how much the foundation means to him and that he considers the people who work there to be like members of his family. None of the people in the room challenged Armstrong over his long denials of doping. Winfrey and her crew had earlier said they would film Monday’s session at Armstrong’s home. As a result, local and international news crews were encamped near the cyclist’s Spanish-style villa before dawn. Armstrong still managed to slip away for a run despite the crowds outside his home. He returned by cutting through a neighbor’s yard and hopping a fence.


Toyota hints at racier new Corolla design B4 Tuesday, January 15, 2013

FINANCIAL

DETROIT (AP) — The Toyota Corolla is getting a facelift. But the jury is still out on how extreme its makeover should be. Toyota hinted at a new, edgier style for the staid compact at the Detroit auto show on Monday. The cautious Japanese automaker unveiled a car that could become the blueprint for the 2014 model. It ditches the current Corolla’s soft, bland styling in favor of sharper lines, a dramatically sloped windshield and more aggressive headlights. The redesign could ultimately get incorporated into the next Corolla, or get dropped. It all depends on how people react to the changes. Still, the world’s largest automaker knows it needs to update the Corolla if it wants to attract younger buyers, who have been flocking to newer, more stylish rivals like the Ford Focus and Hyundai Elantra. The Corolla was last revamped four years ago. Even though Corolla’s U.S. sales rose 21 percent to 290,947 last year, they trailed the Honda Civic, which was new in 2012. Civic sales jumped 44 percent to 317,909. It’s risky to toy with one of the best-selling cars in the world. Toyota has sold 200,000 Corollas every year in the U.S. for nearly two decades. “It’s a tough balance. How do you appeal to younger buyers without alienating your older one?” says Larry Dominique, a former Nissan executive who is now president

and others. Toyota builds 70 percent of the cars it sells in the U.S. in North America. The Corolla is currently made in Canada and Mississippi. Toyota won’t say where the 2014 Corolla will be made. The Corolla — which means “crown” in Latin — was introduced in Japan in 1966 and came to the U.S. two years later. The new sedan went a long way toward changing U.S. buyers’ perception of Toyota as a maker of cheap, poorly AP Photo built cars.

Toyota says it wants the car to look like it’s in motion even when it’s parked. The show car, called the Furia, is slightly longer, narrower and lower than the current Corolla. Earl Stewart, a Toyota dealer in North Palm Beach, Fla., thinks the Furia is beautiful. But he worries that it could turn off his customer base of retirees. “With my customers, the jury is out on what they would say,” he says. “Some people just don’t like the rocket look about the car. They just want a car. They love Camrys and they love Corollas as they are.” The reliable Corolla is still a strong performer for Stewart, who sells 700 or 800 per year, about one-quarter of his dealership’s sales. But Stewart understands that Toyota has to appeal to younger buyers with a sportier look and feel. Toyota also needs to up the ante on horsepower, fuel economy and options in an increasingly competitive market. The current Corolla starts at $16,230, slightly more than the Ford Focus. But the Focus has better fuel economy and a more power ful engine.

Bitter cold does damage to Calif. citrus Coca-Cola addresses FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — As an unusual cold gripped the West Coast for the fifth day, some California citrus growers began to see damage on Monday while strong winds added to the misery of bundled-up city residents. The extreme chill in the West comes as the Eastern U.S., from Atlanta to New York City, is seeing spring-like weather. In the San Joaquin Valley, where far mers are fighting to protect about $1.5 billion worth of citrus fruit on their trees, Sunday temperatures dropped to 25 degrees in some areas and stayed low longer than previous nights. Prolonged temperatures in the mid-20’s or below cause damage to citrus crops. “It was our coldest night to date,” said Paul Story of Exeter -based California Citrus Mutual, an association of the state’s 3,900 citrus growers. “I think mandarin growers are going to see a range of significant damage, enough that they will have to separate their crops.” Mandarins are more susceptible to cold than other citrus and start

sands of dollars to protect these crops.” And farmers are on the hook for a fifth cold night: a freeze warning remains in ef fect until 10 a.m. today for central California. In Southern California, strong winds helped to keep crops out of danger by keeping the cold from settling. Temperatures in downtown Los Angeles plummeted to 34 degrees, breaking the previous record of 36 degrees set on Jan. 14, 2007. Winds gusted to 41 mph in Riverside, while Santa Ana and Van Nuys reported gusts to 26 mph. In Angeles National Forest, where overnight temperatures have been dropping into the 20s, Arcadia hiker Danny Kim, 28, was found Sunday night after surviving 26 hours in the frigid West Fork wilderness. Kim was airlifted to a hospital for treatment of hypothermia. The body of a homeless man was found just before dawn Monday on a Los Angeles Skid Row sidewalk, but it was unclear if the death was caused by the record cold.

to freeze at about 32 degrees, Story said. Because many mandarin trees were planted in recent years as the fruit’s popularity soared, they are grown in colder areas outside the traditional citrus belt. Other citrus crops saw little or minimal damage, Story said. This year’s high sugar content in oranges helped protect them, he said, because sugar inhibits freezing. Growers deployed wind machines to keep the warm air closer to the ground and irrigation to raise the temperature in the groves. Rows farthest away from the protection could be damaged, Story said. And far mers who do not have wind machines could lose crops. Lindsey-based Robert LoBue — who grows 1,000 acres of citrus, including mandarins — said wind machines were critical in his groves, but saving the crop doesn’t come cheap. LoBue runs one wind machine for every 10 acres and has to employ a crew to man them. “We’re very diligent, we run the wind and water all night,” LoBue said, “but we’re spending thou-

NEW YORK (AP) — Coca-Cola is taking to the airwaves for the first time to address a growing cloud over the soft drink industry: obesity. The Atlanta-based company began Monday airing a twominute spot during the highest-rated shows on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC in hopes of flexing its marketing muscle in the debate over sodas and their impact on public health. The ad lays out Coca-Cola’s record of providing drinks with fewer calories over the years and notes that weight gain is the result of consuming too many calories of any kind — not just soda. For Coca-Cola, the world’s No. 1 beverage company, the ads reflect the mounting pressures on the broader industry. Later this year, New York City is set to put into effect a first-in-the-nation cap on the size of soft drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports arenas and other venues. The mayor of Cambridge, Mass., has already proposed a similar measure, saying she was inspired by New York’s move. And when PepsiCo Inc., the No. 2 soda maker, recently signed a wide-ranging endorsement deal with pop singer Beyonce, critics called for her to drop the contract or donate the funds to groups that fund health initiatives. Recent studies have also suggested that sugary drinks cause people to pack on the pounds, independent of other behavior. A decades-long study involving more than 33,000 Americans, for example, suggested that drinking sugary beverages interacts with genes that affect weight and amplifies a person’s risk of obesity beyond what it would be from heredity alone.

but why did he choose to go to HER home? BROKEN-HEARTED IN WYOMING

DEAR ABBY

DEAR BROKEN-HEARTED: He chose to go to her home (even drunk as a skunk) because he knew he would be welcomed. It’s also the reason Arlene can’t look you in the eye. Marriage counseling for you and Byron may help you put this to rest. If he refuses to go with you, go without him.

UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: Recently my husband, “Byron,” and I had an argument, and he took off in his truck. He didn’t return until after work the following day. He had spent the night at our friend “Arlene’s” house. She is divorced and lives alone. Byron assures me “nothing happened” between them. I want to believe him, but ever since this incident, Arlene will not look me in the eye or speak to me. I love Byron and trusted him until now. It hurts to think that our marriage may be ruined over a stupid argument. I know he was intoxicated,

P.S. It appears Arlene has an agenda of her own — and Byron may be one of the items on it. You’d be wise to delete her from your list of friends. #####

DEAR ABBY: I have always been touched by the acts of kindness stories in your column. When I was 20, I went into New York City to attend classes. Upon my arrival, I was mugged in the bus station. It was rush hour and I was too scared to scream. After the mugger ran off, I picked up the few belongings that had fallen

COMICS

out of my handbag, walked across the street and down the stairs to the subway. It was then I realized I had no money to buy a token. I started crying and couldn’t stop. A middle-aged woman with a friendly smile arrived and stayed at my side until the authorities arrived. She calmed me down and wouldn’t leave until she knew I was in safe hands. Before she left, she slipped some money into my pocket. After Sept. 11, I heard people say how “surprised” they were that New Yorkers “came together.” Not me, Abby. I have known since the day I was mugged that there are only a few bad apples in the Big Apple. I hope my good Samaritan will see your column and realize what her compassion and generosity meant to me that day and ever since. STILL COMMUTING IN NYC DEAR STILL COMMUTING: Thanks for an upper of a letter, which proves that kindheartedness is universal — and not limited to any one area of the map. #####

DEAR ABBY:

Please help me and thousands of other payroll administrators with a public service message. I will be sending out W-2s this month to current and former employees. Last year, I got back about 10 percent of these W-2s because employees have moved and left no forwarding addresses. Often the phone has also been disconnected.

Please remind anyone who has changed jobs and moved in the past year to make sure their former employer has their new address so their W-2 will arrive on the first try. I have a stack of these forms that have never been claimed by former employees and no idea how to contact them. PAYROLL ADMINISTRATOR, FORT PAYNE, ALA.

DEAR ADMINISTRATOR:

I’m pleased to pass along your message. The W-2 is proof the government needs to verify what someone has been paid and what has been withheld by the employer. Employers are required to provide one.

Dear Heloise: Recently, I purchased several movie DVDs that were labeled “CLOSED CAPTION,” but I found that the “cc” didn’t work. I had to return the DVDs. I even purchased a new DVD player, thinking that my player was the problem. But it wasn’t! Makes me wonder if manufacturers check to determine if the closed captioning actually works before putting it on the package. This is a big problem that needs to be addressed. A Reader, Omaha, Neb. When you put the DVD in, a menu should appear onscreen. Look for “options,” “settings,” “features,” etc. Closed captioning usually is an option that you have to select in the DVD menu for it to show up. Heloise

Hagan crowned as Shop the classifieds new Miss America Legals

LAS VEGAS (AP) — From a hometown of 26,000 people to an adopted home borough of 2.6 million, Miss America’s story includes a journey from a small town to the big city — but it doesn’t start there. Mallory Hagan, 23, moved from Alabama to New York City as soon as she became a legal adult, and though she says she left because “I needed to find myself,” it turns out she knew who she wanted to be all along. “When Mallory was like 13 years old she was sitting on my deck and said, ‘Miss Tina, my goal is one day I’d like to grow up to be Miss America,”’ said Tina Gunnels, a neighbor from Opelika, Ala., on Sunday. “She accomplished that goal.” Hagan took the crown Saturday night after tap dancing to a James Brown tune, deftly answering a question about gun violence in schools and raising the issue of child sexual abuse in her contestant platform. “I genuinely understand the hardships the average woman faces,” having gone to school and working full time before winning Miss New York and clinching the Miss America crown, Hagan said in an appearance Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I understand what it’s like to do all these things day-today and still maintain a healthy lifestyle,” she added. Hagan, who resides in New York’s most-populous borough of Brooklyn, said after her victory that she was sure someone else would take the top prize, even after she made it to the final two contestants. She said she was standing on the stage thinking, “They’re going to get another first runner-up photo of me.” Her father was not nearly so modest. “We’re super excited, super exhilarated, super proud of her,” Phil Hagan said in an

interview with The Associated Press backstage immediately after his daughter’s victory. “We’re not extremely surprised, either.” Mallory Hagan, however, has been competing on the pageant circuit for a decade and nearly aged out of the system without ever having won at a state or national level. The Miss America competition accepts contestants between the ages of 17 and 24. Hagan says she moved to New York on her own at 18 years old with less than $1,000 in her pocket. She tried for the Miss New York title in 2010 and 2011 before winning last year. The transition wasn’t always easy. “The struggle was vast,” she said. “There were days when I had five bucks in my pocket. And I would push that $5” between subway fare and meal money. But the decision was one she felt compelled to make. “I just knew that the energy of NYC was something that I really loved,” she told the AP after her victory. “I was always a little more liberal-thinking than my hometown. And I just knew that I needed to get out for a little bit, and I needed to find myself.” Hagan said it was her mother who encouraged her to address the problem of child sex abuse, which had “rippled through” her family. Hagan’s mother, Mandy Moore, was overcome with emotion and wiped tears away as she spoke. “It’s very overwhelming,” she said. “It’s all hitting me so fast.” With crown, she receives a $50,000 college scholarship and a year as an instant celebrity and role model. She defeated Miss South Carolina Ali Rogers, who took second, and Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, who finished third.
