Gun limits face tough obstacles

Vol. 122, No. 14 75¢ Daily / $1.25 Sunday

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is launching the nation’s most sweeping ef fort to curb gun violence in nearly two decades, urging a reluctant Congress to ban military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines like those used in last month’s massacre of 20 elementary school children in Newtown, Conn. The broad package Obama will announce today will also include efforts to stop bullying and boost availability of mental health services. It’s expected to include more than a

dozen steps the president can take on his own through executive action. Those measures will provide a pathway for skirting opposing lawmakers, but they will be limited in scope, and in some cases, focused simply on enforcing existing laws. But Congress would have to approve the bans on assault weapons and ammunition magazines holding more than 10 bullets, along with a requirement for universal background checks on gun buyers. Some gun control advocates worry that opposition from Republicans

and conservative Democrats, as well as the National Rifle Association, will be too great to overcome.

White House of ficials, seeking to avoid setting the president up for failure, have emphasized that no single measure — even an assault weapons ban — would solve a scourge of gun violence across the country. But without such a ban, or other sweeping Congress-approved measures, it’s unclear whether executive actions alone can make any noticeable differSee OBAMA, Page A2

The jury trial for Harvey Salinas, who is charged with second-degree murder, began under heightened security at 5th District Court on Tuesday. Salinas was 17 when 18-year -old Arnulfo Villela Jr. was shot and killed outside a residence at 826 E. Hendricks St., July 6. In her opening statement, Assistant District Attorney Emily Maher set the scene for the Friday night where Villela was hanging out with friends when a white Honda appeared on Hendricks.

Martinez uses State of State 51st Legislature begins to push her economic plan ILISSA GILMORE RECORD STAFF WRITER

SANTA FE (AP) — As the New Mexico Legislature retur ned to work Tuesday, Gov. Susana Martinez used her State of the State address to press lawmakers to focus on boosting New Mexico’s struggling economy.

Martinez spoke to a joint session of the House and Senate after legislators convened for a 60day session, taking the opportunity to say that diversifying New Mexico’s economy was needed to protect the state from a

federal government that she called “dysfunctional.” “The national economy is stagnant. It’s hardly growing,” Martinez said. “And the federal government — on which our state has become so dependent over the years — is faltering, weighed down by $16 trillion in debt.” Economic and budget issues were possible common ground for the Republican governor and the Democrat-controlled

Legislature. New Mexico has lost about 4,800 jobs in the past year — a drop of 0.6 percent — and potential federal budget cuts could deliver another blow to the state’s economy. Martinez asked the Legislature to approve a reduction in the corporate income tax rate, as well as other economic development incentives to make New Mexico more competitive with neigh-


State legislators convened at the in Santa Fe Tuesday to begin the 51st legislative session, which is scheduled to run 60 days this year. In her State of the State address, Gov. Susana Martinez said the focus of the session should be on making New Mexico more competitive by adopting legislation that encourages job growth and makes the state attractive to businesses. One way to do this, she proposed, was by lowering the state’s business tax rate from 7.6 percent to 4.9 percent.

See TRIAL, Page A2

She also asked legislators to pass infrastructure projects, such as those for water systems and roads, in an effort to create jobs that would “kick-start our economy.” Martinez also noted the role education plays in developing a strong workforce and proposed programs to improve reading proficiency by the third grade and decrease the drop out rate. Rep. Candy Spence Ezzell, R-Roswell, said she agreed with the governor on the importance of reading intervention programs. “If our kids cannot read, See 51st, Page A2

Tim holds last meeting Senate elects Papen as top-ranking leader Tim Jennings capped off his 34-year senatorial career Monday by presiding over his last committee hearing in the Roundhouse. In November, Jennings lost his longtime Roswell seat in a high-profile race against Cliff Pirtle. His final act in office saw him preside over a joint Legislative Council meeting that approved a $134,000 appropriation to the Department of Public Safety to finance security for the duration of the 60-day 2013 Legislative Session. After the vote, Jennings turned the floor over to representatives from the House, fellow senators and people in the audience who

praised and roasted him in heartfelt farewells. “It’s been a great ride,” an emotional Jennings said. “This is one huge family and I hope you all make sure it stays that way. We’re not here for the party; we’re here for the people.” During his time in of fice, Jennings held nearly every Senate leadership, including Senate president pro tem, majority leader, and Senate whip. “We’re not all the same, but under the Constitution, we’re all the same,” Jennings said. “We should all know the dif ferences between the House and

SANTA FE (AP) — Democrat Mary Kay Papen, of Las Cruces, won election Tuesday as the Senate’s top-ranking leader, making her the first woman in more than 70 years to serve as president pro tem. Papen won with the unanimous support of Democrats and Republicans. The majority Democrats rallied behind Papen rather than pushing ahead with a potentially divisive contest between her and fellow Democrat Pete Campos, of Las Vegas. Papen told her colleagues that she hoped the Senate “will come together and that we will be a unified body.” “We are a family and we need to stick together,” Papen told her colleagues after her election, which came shortly after the Legislature convened. “We are going to disagree at times, but let’s agree on more than what we disagree.” Democrats had nominated Campos for the leadership job last month during a closed-door caucus. But Papen, a moderate from southern New Mexico, mounted a challenge and had the support of a coalition of Republicans and Democrats. In the See SENATE, Page A2

James McMullan

LAS CRUCES — America has lost another of its Greatest Generation, Las Cruces has lost a truly original personality, and the McMullan Family mourns the loss of a muchloved husband and father. James J McMullan, 86, of Las Cruces, passed away peacefully and with dignity at his home in Doña Ana County, surrounded by his wife, children, and grandchildren. He died of natural causes directly related to living life to the fullest and making every day worthwhile. Known throughout his life as Jimmy, Bubber, and most recently Cowboy Jim, he was born to William and Mattie McMullan on May 9, 1926, into a family that included five brothers, Billy, Aggie, Joe, Tommy, and Rodney, and two sisters, Mary Margaret and Tana. Vaughn, N.M., had no idea of what was coming when Jim was born. A true Renaissance man, Jim was famous for being a jack-ofall-trades and a master of many subjects. During his 86 years, he lived several lives, knowing that to reinvent yourself every decade just made things more interesting. At 17, he lied on his military application, and enlisted in the United States Navy during World War II, serving with honor as a petty officer first class in the South Pacific, and as a gunner on the HMS Bloemfontein. After his honorable discharge from the military, he was recruited by the University of New Mexico to run track, where he bested the state record for the 100-yard and 50-yard dash multiple times. Recognizing his speed and agility, the football team quickly added him to the roster as their star running back, carrying the ball to numerous touchdowns along the way. He was lucky enough to meet Mary E. Budagher during that celebrated time, and wisely married her on Aug. 16, 1949. After graduation, Jim fulfilled his dream of being a teacher and football coach, working in Deming, Grants, and Littlefield, Texas. With degrees in physical education and English, he was known to recite Shakespeare to anyone who would listen, and inspired young players to rise above their size and ability to be victors on the field. He “schooled” not only those in the classroom, but his chil-


dren, their friends and anyone else who walked through the front door. In 1957, he became one of the first managers of the Sunland region for State Farm Insurance, and mentored countless agents toward success. He gave 35 years to the company, bringing life to the slogan, “Like a Good Neighbor ...” Throughout his business career, he was an avid entrepreneur and risk taker, buying and selling multiple properties and businesses in New Mexico and Arizona, most notably Cycle Villa and Cattleman’s Steakhouse. After he retired from State Farm, he reinvented himself again as Cowboy Jim, purveyor of fine steaks, liquor, and New Mexico artifacts. He was known to don a cowboy hat, black vest, boots custom-fitted with taps, and tap dance to the music of Dean Martin, to the great delight of his customers. During his lifetime he also tried his hand as a shoe shine boy, body builder, freakishly strong for his size power lifter, unlicensed pilot of the pink panther air glider, professional baseball player in Mexico, poet, musician, actor, entertainer and comedian, captain of a yacht permanently docked in his front yard, amateur magician, small-time jewelry dealer and diamond collector, pecan farmer, carpenter, electrician, plumber, swimming pool expert, son, husband, uncle, grandfather, greatgrandfather, and most notably father of 11 children, Jude McMullan, James J. McMullan II, Beverly McMullan, Barbara McMullan, Marilyn Manatt, Robert McMullan, Sallie Clifford, Coeen McMullan, Thomas McMullan, Janie Blue and Sheila McMullan. His legacy includes 23 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. A visitation will be held from 6 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, at Holy Cross Church, 1327 N. Miranda, Las Cruces, NM 88005, where a prayer vigil will follow at 7 p.m. Funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, Jan. 18, 2013, also at Holy Cross Catholic Church, with Msgr. John Anderson officiating. Rite of Christian burial will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens with military honors.

Astrid Holland

Astrid Elisabeth Holland, a Roswell resident for 60 years, passed away in Lowell, Mich., on Jan. 10,

2013. She was bor n on July 30, 1916, in Belmont, Mass. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Raymond Prunty Holland Jr.; her parents Sanfrid and Anna Elisabeth Johnson, originally of Ulriceham, Sweden; her sister Ingrid Hepler, of Green Valley, Ariz.; and her brother Edward Johnson, who passed away at the age of 4. She is survived by her brother Stanley T. Johnson, of Asheville, N.C.; her daughters, Nancy Holland, of Roswell, Sally Hudson and her husband Jack Hudson, of Lowell, and Linda Nelson and her husband Stephen Ray Nelson, who live in north Texas. Other family she leaves behind are her granddaughter Sandra Birmingham, of Lowell, her husband Dr. James Birmingham, and grandson Dr. Daniel Hudson, of Waterford, Vt., and his wife Julia Hudson. She was beloved by her great-grandchildren, Rebekah, Christina, Elijah, Isaiah and Jude Birmingham, and Grace, Danny, Timmy and Salina Hudson. Astrid attended the First Presbyterian Church in Roswell, where she initiated the church’s kindergarten program in the 1960s. She wrote numerous plays and original compositions that were per for med by her kindergarten students in the church’s fellowship hall through 1974. She also taught kindergarten at Child Garden Kindergarten in the 1950s and at the Episcopal Church kindergarten in the early 1960s. In addition to her church activities, Astrid was active in the community for many years in organizations including PEO and the PTA. She also served as secretary/treasurer for the Holland Corp. She was a gifted artist and enjoyed painting realistic New Mexico landscapes. During her high school years, she was captain of the Newton Center girls’ basketball team and a member of the drama club, where she per for med in several plays. She attended Miss Pierce’s Secretarial School in Boston, before marrying Ray Holland on Dec. 31, 1937. After marrying, they lived in Nashville, Tenn., and North Hollywood, Calif., before moving to Roswell in 1946. She will be forever remembered in our hearts as a loving wife, a devoted and caring mother, and a proud grandmother and great-grandmother. She lived a faithful Christian life and shared her love and wisdom with all. A memorial service will be held at First Presbyterian Church, Monday, Jan. 21, 2013, followed by a reception at the church. Arrangements have been entrusted to Ballard Funeral Home and Crematory.

boring states in recruiting and retaining private businesses. Martinez and lawmakers agree that New Mexico needs to diversify what has long been an economy that depends heavily on government spending, including funding for military installations as well as Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories. Martinez, however, said federal government jobs in the state were declining. “The opportunity to forge a new path and shape our destiny is before us. It’s an opportunity defined not by decisions made in Washington, but by the hard work and ingenuity of New Mexicans.” Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, DBelen, said Democrats were willing to work with the governor on strengthening the economy but would not support tax cuts the benefit non-New Mexico companies. He also said Democrats could not support tax breaks for the wealthy

Jennings said he would still come around the Capitol, but not if he would try to regain his seat in the future.

Sanchez said Democrats were willing to compromise on the issue. He said, however, that Martinez and Republicans were “playing politics” by bringing up a proposal that has failed twice. He dismissed the measure as a “wedge issue” meant to stir up emotions rather than solve problems. Sanchez also said other states were considering an immigrant driver’s license bill similar to the one in New Mexico.

The gover nor also intends to push for merit pay for teachers and school administrators who succeed in boosting student performance. To highlight her ef forts toward stronger reading scores in schools, the governor invited a firstgrader to read a portion of his book called “The Governor Rocks.” He read to lawmakers that he wanted to be a news reporter or police officer.

that would potentially decrease education funding. “Building a more attractive business climate takes more than tax breaks,” said Sanchez. In addition, Sanchez said state lawmakers passed a series of economic initiatives during the previous session, only to see them vetoed by the gover nor. He vowed to push for state employee pension overhauls and a pay a raise for state employees, including public school teachers. Martinez also said she plans to renew several proposals that Democrats have blocked in the past two years, including a measure to stop the state from issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants and to hold back third-graders if they aren’t reading proficiently. Her request to reintroduce a repeal of the driver’s license law — which she said has a majority of the support of state residents — draw a long standing ovation from Republican lawmakers. Immigrant rights groups, however, have vowed to oppose any repeal attempt and said law-

Roswell firm got contracts despite fraud inquiry ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — New Mexico health officials awarded contracts to a Roswell-based firm that was at the time was and still is the subject of another agency’s investigation into alleged Medicaid fraud. The Department of Health Services awarded contracts to New Mexico Psychiatric Services last year to provide on-call or temporary services at state-run facilities, the Albuquerque Jour nal reported. At the time, the department knew the state Attorney General’s Office was investigating the company in connection with its work for the Department of Human Services, the newspaper reported Sunday. Vigil, a Kenny spokesman for the health department, said the agency knew about the investigation but didn’t consider the investigation a “determinative” factor. The president of New Mexico Psychiatric Services, Dr. Babak Mirin, disclosed the investigation before any contracts were signed last year, Vigil said.

days leading up to the legislative session, Papen said she was confident of winning the leadership race. Democrats hold a 25-17 majority in the Senate but wanted to avoid a bruising leadership fight that exposed possible fractures between more liberal senators and moderate-to-conservative members within the party. After the Senate convened, Campos nominated Papen for the leadership job and said he did so to ensure the Senate was united and focused on the issues confronting the Legislature. Campos and Papen hugged, and he walked arm-in-arm with her to the front of the Senate chamber along with Republican Sen. Carroll Leavell, of Jal. The president pro tem is the top-ranking Senate leader but not the most power ful. The majority leader exerts more influence by controlling the dayto-day flow of legislation. The Senate president plays a key role in deciding committee assignments, including chairmanships. The last woman to hold the post, Louise Holland

Mirin’s attorney, David H. Johnson, said the company has been cooperating with the attorney general’s investigation and will repay any overpayments that it may have received. “At this point there has only been an allegation of billing fraud,” Johnson said in an email to the Journal. “Fraud has not been established.” The Department of Health and the Department of Human Services Department are separate state agencies with some overlapping functions. The Department of Health selected New Mexico Psychiatric Services, along with six other companies last May, to provide services as needed. All seven fir ms that submitted proposals were approved to provide services and each state health department facility decided which firm to hire. New Mexico Psychiatric landed most of the work by signing contracts for facilities in Albuquerque, Roswell and Las Vegas.

Coe, a Carrizozo Democrat, was president pro tem in 1935-1940, according to the Legislative Council Service. Papen has served in the Senate since 2001. Sen. Michael Sanchez, a Belen Democrat, is majority leader. The House also will have a new leadership this session. As expected, Democrat Ken Martinez was selected as House speaker. He won on a party-line 3832 vote and succeeds the late Ben Lujan, who did not seek re-election and died last month. The speakership is the most powerful position in the Legislature. The speaker largely controls the legislative agenda in the House and has broad discretionary powers in presiding over daily proceedings. Importantly, the speaker also appoints chairmen and members of committees, which conduct much of the work of the Legislature by approving and rejecting bills. Martinez, a lawyer from Grants, has served in the House since 1999. He moved into the Democratic leadership in 2004 when Democrats elected him majority leader. His late father, Walter, served as House speaker in 19711978 but was ousted by what was called the “Cowboy Coalition” of minority Republicans and conservative, mainly rural Democrats.

vehicle and asked for someone else. According to Maher, Joseph Lucero, 17, was carrying a .22 caliber, Salinas a 9 mm. and Israel Vigil, a 45 mm handgun. Words were exchanged; shots rang out; the friends ran to evade gunfire. In the end, Villela lay dead, shot seven times, and Villela’s friend was wounded. Defense attorney, Luke A. Ragsdale countered that the autopsy revealed that Villela was shot five times with a 22 caliber, once with a 45 and one time by a bullet of unknown caliber. Ragsdale reported that the autopsy also indicated the cause of death was three .22 caliber bullets rather than by a 9 mm bullet, the gun carried by his client. The first witness for the defense, Michael Montantez, 14, was with Villelas at the time of the shooting. He said five people were in the car that stopped at Hendricks Street. Four got out. The first to approach was Israel Vigil, 18, who asked the two youths if they were Josh and Chris. Deputy District Attorney Michael Murphy had Montantez describe Salinas. The witness replied that Salinas had piercings with spikes and pointed to the defendant. He reported that an argument ensued. According to Montantez, Salinas shot Villela in the chest. He turned and tried to run away and Salinas continued shooting him in the back. Murphy provided a photo array provided by the police where Montantez identified Salinas as the shooter and the witness confirmed his identification and the place where he had initialed the document. Ragsdale brought out Montantez’s statements to the police and inquired about discrepancies between his testimony and the previous statement when he said Lucero pushed Villela, who in tur n pushed back. Montantez held firm with his testimony, saying that Salinas was the first to fire and hit Villelas in the chest. The witness could not specify the number of shots and said he did not see anyone else shoot the victim, but he admitted when he was running, he was not watching who pulled the trigger. Villela’s girlfriend Crystal Dimas, who was also at the scene at the time of the incident, supported Montantez’s testimony. She said she rec-

ognized Israel Vigil, who is a cousin, and she recognized Salinas by his voice. She, too, fled when the gunfire began and said she did not even remember giving a statement. Montantez’s mother Patsy Ang reported that she ran to the door when she heard shots fired. She was the first to find Villela’s body on the east side of the house. “I was crying. I was worried that they had killed my son.” Villela’s sister, who also lived on Hendricks, told about hearing the shots and seeing her brother’s body. She was not allowed to approach him as officers secured the scene. She said her boyfriend, Simon Rodriguez, grabbed his gun and left the house. Rodriguez told the court that he saw muzzle flashes and began returning gunfire. “I was trying to save my cousin’s life, Michael’s life, and trying to defend my house and my family.” Officer Sabrina Homeytewa, the first to arrive on Hendricks, testified that she was initially told of a vehicle damaged, but neighbors said no one was hurt. Then she heard a woman start to scream. Ang had found the body. Of ficer R yan Crane said he arrived on Hendricks after Homeytewa. As he approached the residence, he discovered several .22 caliber casings and some 9 mm or .40 caliber shell casings in the street. He, too, reported the sound of screaming. Crane said, “He was face down with blood pooling around him. All I could see was one wound in the back. ...” The last to take the stand was Sgt. Steve Meredith. “There was a woman screaming ‘my brother has been shot.’” He described a trail of blood that led from the body through the driveway and onto the street. Meredith had Crane to stay with the body while Homeytewa was order to maintain the crime scene until CID could take over the scene.

ence. According to a lobbyist briefed Tuesday, Obama will present a three-part plan focused on gun violence, education and mental health. The president will call for a focus on universal background checks. Some 40 percent of gun sales take place without background checks, including those by private sellers at gun shows or over the Inter net, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The president will call for banning assault weapons and limiting ammunition magazines to 10 rounds or fewer, and also propose a federal statute to stop “straw man” purchases of guns and crack down on trafficking rings. He’ll order federal agencies to conduct more research on gun use and crimes, something Republican congressional majorities have limited through language in budget bills, the lobbyist said. On education, Obama will call for more anti-bullying efforts; more training for teachers, counselors and principals; and providing resources for schools for more counselors and resource officers. Obama has pledged urgent action to prevent future mass shootings, and his plan — coming just one month after the Newtown attacks — is swift by Washington standards. The president’s framework is based on recommendations from Vice President Joe Biden, who led a wide-ranging task force on gun violence. The vice pres-

they will drop out of school,” she said, noting that close to 70 students drop out a day. She said she also agreed with Martinez on lowering the state’s business tax rate to establish a competitive foothold and have businesses come into state. “We’ve got to drop that rate,” she said. “Private enterprise drives our economy, not gover nment.” Ezzell thought the governor’s speech was very good and noted that it was interrupted several times by applause — especially when Martinez asked the legislature to repeal the law that allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses.

ident’s proposals included 19 steps that could be achieved through executive action. Obama may order the Justice Department to crack down on people who lie on background checks; only a tiny number are now prosecuted. Such a step has support from the National Rifle Association, which has consistently argued that existing laws must be enforced before new ones are considered. He also could take steps ordering federal agencies to make more data on gun crimes available and conduct more research on the issue, something Republican congressional majorities have limited through language in budget bills. And he may order tougher penalties against gun trafficking and give schools flexibility to use grant money to improve safety. Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell, the chamber’s top Republican, has warned the White House that it will be at least three months before the Senate considers gun legislation. And Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said it is immigration, not gun control, that is at the top of his priority list after the fiscal fights. House Republican leaders are expected to wait for any action by the Senate before deciding how — or whether — to proceed with any gun measure. Publicly, House GOP leaders are being careful not to rule anything out ahead of Obama’s announcement. Privately, House Republicans voice skepticism that the debate will even get to the point of Senate action that would require a response by the House. Martinez also encouraged lawmakers to find common ground despite their disagreements and work for the benefit of the entire state. Sen. Bill Burt, R-Alamogordo, said if the support Mary Kay Papen, DLas Cruces, received from both Democrats and Republicans to be elected president proTtmpore of the Senate was an indication, “there’s a very good opportunity for the Senate to be more balanced in its approach this year.” “Of course, we’re still going to disagree,” he said. Ezzell said she looks forward to working with the other side of the aisle on issues, such as a creating a balanced budget. “We need to keep New Mexico solvent,” she said.

Don’t expect much from this Legislature A4 Wednesday, January 16, 2013

SANTA FE — What should we expect from New Mexico’s 2013 Legislature? Our chosen leaders have promised to work together but the chances don’t look good. Former Gov. Bruce King’s campaign slogan was “Working Together,” But Bruce had been on the county commission, was a former House speaker and a threetime governor. He knew how to make it work. Today we are faced with more than 30 of our 112 lawmakers being new to their jobs and a governor whose experience is as a prosecutor — a job not known for working together. Add to those problems new leadership in both the House and Senate. House Speaker Ben Lujan retired and Senate President Pro Tem Tim Jennings was beaten in a bitter battle. So we have no steady hand of longtime leadership plus a number of first-time committee chairs. And it doesn’t end there. The





recent elections were the most expensive ever — and probably the dirtiest. Everybody claims dirty elections but this is the first time we have had GOP money being used to defeat Republicans in the Republican primary and Democrats in the Democratic primary. And it was the governor’s PAC that was behind it all. If that doesn’t make for some poisonous water, I don’t know what does. To top it off, Gov. Susana Martinez is reported to have wanted Republican Senate Floor Leader Stuart Ingle, of Portales, out of the Legislature because he is too nice a guy. Ingle

Roswell Daily Record

is staying and is probably too nice to hold it against her. Gov. Martinez says she plans to work closer with legislators this year. She said that last year too but some legislators tell me they were called into the governor’s office only to be told how the governor would like them to vote and not to listen to any legislator’s concerns. The governor remains popular with the pubic, possibly because she appears at many public events and visits many elementary schools. Her popularity likely also stems from having picked her fights carefully. She hasn’t strictly followed the GOP’s handbook for new governors, which has gotten some of her gubernatorial colleagues in trouble. State employees, many of whom voted for her, aren’t wildly enthusiastic about her now. But the governor has avoided doing anything to make them want to rebel as they have in some states.

Agreeing to participate in the federal Medicaid expansion program also should be a popular decision for the governor. Only one other Republican-led state has agreed to do so, New Mexico is a very poor state with a high number of people unemployed. Problems could be in the offing as to the degree of involvement necessary from the Legislature and from the governor. Gov. Martinez is expected to try her two signature pieces of legislation again this session. She may not get any further with taking driver’s licenses from undocumented aliens. Some Senate Democratic lawmakers claim they have designed alternative legislation that fulfills all of Gov. Martinez’s concerns that won’t take transportation away from undocumented workers who need a way to get to their job. But the governor won’t budge. She wants it her way or no way. She says it is a matter of public

safety. But some states are beginning to decide that it is safer to know that illegal alien drivers have passed a driving test and had insurance at least at the time they applied for a license. Retention of third graders if they are not reading proficiently is another issue that should be able to be resolved by diplomatic negotiations. Since long before I taught fifth grade 50 years ago, teachers have been blocked from holding poor students back by parents who wouldn’t hear of it. But that was a call involving much more than a test score. We may be moving toward some resolution of this standoff with extra reading help in the early years and more parental involvement.

Hagel a good choice

“The people in Washington make the policy, but it’s the little guys who come back in the body bags.” So said former Army Sgt. Charles T. Hagel in an oral history of the Vietnam War in 2002. By then Chuck Hagel, who’d been a little guy carrying a rifle in the Mekong Delta in 1968, had become a United States senator, more than a little concerned about the Bush administration’s eagerness to go to war in Iraq. On Monday, President Barack Obama nominated Mr. Hagel, 66, a Republican who served two terms in the Senate from Nebraska before stepping down in 2008, to succeed Leon Panetta as secretary of defense. He would become the first Vietnam veteran, and the first former enlisted man, to head the Pentagon. You’d think Republicans as well as Democrats would be delighted with this appointment. The wiser ones are. Here’s a man who grew up in poverty, got drafted, earned two Purple Hearts, worked his way through college, made a fortune in the cellphone business and then entered public service. He’s subsequently in the private equity business and now teaches at Georgetown University. If Horatio Alger were a Republican, he’d look a lot like Chuck Hagel. Democrats should find his iconoclastic views on the Pentagon reassuring. He’s skeptical of unlimited weapons spending. He became an opponent of the war in Iraq. He wants to draw down the U.S. presence in Afghanistan faster and deeper than Obama does. He’s an internationalist who believes military intervention should be the last resort, not the first one. He’s still got shrapnel in his body and believes that if you ask a young soldier to go in harm’s way, you’d better be able to explain why it’s necessary. Unfortunately, all of that doesn’t seem to be enough for some people. These days, George C. Marshall wouldn’t be enough for some people. Some GOP senators, including Hagel’s longtime friend, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., find him insufficiently enthusiastic about potential military intervention on behalf of Israel and too supportive of diplomacy with Iran. Some pro-Israel groups have begun to mount a television advertising campaign calling Hagel’s views into doubt. Some Democratic groups find Hagel insufficiently enthusiastic about gay rights. They say that putting him in charge of the Pentagon, at a time when the military is trying to change its culture in the post-”don’t ask, don’t tell” world, would be a step backward. In an interview with a home-state newspaper, The Lincoln Journal Star, Hagel emphasized his “unequivocal, total support for Israel.” He has apologized for some of his past remarks on the gay rights issue. No doubt these issues will get full airing when the Senate Armed Services Committee holds hearings on his nomination. Barring any new disclosures, there is nothing in Hagel’s past or present that should keep any senator from voting for confirmation. And there is a great deal to suggest that he is precisely the leader the Pentagon will need as the nation transitions out of an era of too many wars and unlimited military spending. The immediate problem is $487 billion in spending cuts that the Pentagon faces over the next 10 years. That number could double if Congress and the president fail to reach a budget compromise to prevent a 10-year, trillion-dollar cut in spending created by the 2011 “sequestration” agreement. Half the cuts would come from military spending, half from domestic programs. Congressional Republicans have vowed to prevent any defense cuts. Panetta, the current defense secretary, has said that losing $487 billion over 10 years would “hollow out” the military. That is absurd. The cuts would return defense spending to 2007 levels, about $430 billion, exclusive of war spending. Hagel, rifle squad leader-turned-internationalist, would bring the right perspective to Pentagon priorities. Troops first. Contractors last. Look before you leap. In a complicated, dangerous world in an era of limited resources, tough, smart decisions must be made. The nation should be grateful that someone like Chuck Hagel is willing to serve.

Control politicians, not guns

If laws were enough to deter criminal behavior prisons would be empty. The latest effort to “control” guns in America is as likely to deter someone intent on breaking the law as outlawing lust would affect one’s libido. What’s in a heart can’t be controlled by restricting what’s in a hand. Following the Newtown tragedy, President Obama vowed to seek the passage of an assault weapons ban and hastily assembled an administration-wide gun control task force, an effort that amounts to little more than a political


DEAR DOCTOR K: My 8year -old has trouble falling asleep. Can you give me some practical suggestions that may help? DEAR READER: The pediatricians here at Harvard Medical School who specialize in sleep problems have given me this advice: To help your child (or anyone of any age, for that matter) fall asleep, you must remove the obstacles that may impede or disrupt his sleep. By doing so, you’ll make it much easier for your child to settle down and drift off into a restful slumber. Here are some suggestions that should help: — Stop your child’s caffeine intake at least eight hours prior to bedtime. Not a lot of



act designed to impress what Rush Limbaugh calls “lowinformation voters.” Government must be seen doing something to keep mad men from shooting children and moviegoers, even if that something will likely prove ineffective.


8-year -olds drink coffee or tea, but there’s plenty of caffeine in cola beverages or in chocolate, for example. — Reduce your child’s exposure to bright light for the two hours before bedtime. Dimmer light helps the brain prepare for sleep. — Keep your child’s bedroom dark, quiet and at a comfortable temperature.

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way,” the proverb goes, and someone who has the will to kill with a gun is going to find a way (and a gun) no matter how many laws are passed. Consider Chicago where numerous anti-gun laws appear to have done little to stop gun deaths. President Obama put Vice President Joe Biden in charge of the task force. Biden calls his gun control effort a “moral issue.” Does Biden suffer from selective morality? For him, same-sex marriage and abortion don’t appear to be moral issues, as they are for his

— If your son still uses a night-light, choose one with a low-intensity bulb. — Reduce the intensity of your child’s reading lamp to 40 watts or less. — Some parents play classical music in the background, hoping it will lull a child to sleep. Bad idea. Music — particularly great music — is not “white noise.” The ingenious melodies and rhythms are compelling and call to you even when you’re asleep. Even generally soft music can have sudden loud moments. And if you play it, but let it stop when the piece ends, your child may notice the sudden absence of music and have See DR. K, Page A5

Catholic church, but gun control is. The loss of liberty always begins at the extremes, but it won’t stop there. Radicals won’t be satisfied with outlawing one type of gun. In 1995, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, DCalif., told “60 Minutes,” “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up (every gun) ... Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in. I would have done it ...” In 2004, when he was an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama

Jan. 16, 1988 Staff Sgt. Paul M. Charo, son of Paul C. Dozier and stepson of James H. Dozier of Roswell, was presented the Air Assault Badge upon his graduation from the U.S. Army’s air assault school at Fort Campbell. During the training, Charo learned to rapidly and safely exit a helicopter from a variety of difficult situations, whether descending into treetops or lowering themselves, or injured soldiers, down sheer drops.

Mr. Smith “went” to Washington Help with nonprofit grant funding

Given today’s political climate, there is a movie everyone needs to watch. You may want to watch it ag a in i f y ou ’ v e s e e n i t already. Specifically, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” with Jimmy Stewart, speaks very eloquently to t o d ay ’ s co rr up t i o n a n d mis-dealings in Washington DC: one (good man’s) fight and victory. Unfortunately, today’s Hollywood would not allow that picture to be made (just as “truth” was squashed in t h e mo v ie ). T o da y , t h e good guy would not have the money, the political cl o u t , t he co n s t i t ue n t su p p o r t o r t h e m a s s m e d i a’ s c over a g e , a n d wo u l d ha ve t o c o nt e n d with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and John Boehner. Sorry, America! Last week I mentioned a few of the cuts to veteran benefits we are likely to be facing very soon. There ar e sever al m o r e cu ts being discussed, likely to pass. Many veterans, and the country at large, are not aware that the drastic cu t s b e i n g m a de t o t h e De p ar tm en t o f D e f e n s e b u d g et i nc l ud e dr a s ti c cuts to veterans’ benefits, which are part of the DOD budget. So, we will be cutting funds for our national security and cutting funds for those men and women who have fought to secure the free government our nation enjoys. However, since we’ve been “negotiating” government spending cuts, I have not yet heard once “let’s cut welfa r e , an d po l it ic ian s’ sa la r ie s a nd be n e f i t s . ” He r e’ s a th o ug h t , l e t ’ s send the “needy” and our p o li t ic i an s t o f i g h t t he next war. I am totally serious! You may think me crass fo r s u g g est in g t a k i n g

funds from the “needy,” but after working a majority of my career in jobs providing services to the “needy,” I can tell you at least 35-40 percent of all m o ne y pa i d i n t o we lfare/Medicaid is paid to a critically broken system. Between non-eligible beneficiaries (those who could work, but choose not to), a n d o u tr i g h t f r au d i n m an y o f t h e p r o g r am s (gaming the system), there would be a chunk of taxpayer money that could go a long way to reducing the veterans’ cuts in benefits. M a ny o f u s w h o h a v e worked in the “social services” field know this to be true, but we excuse it by saying “but the good far o u tw e ig h s th e b ad .” Wrong! Cutting veterans benefits before we eliminate the fraud and those not eligible for benefits in the welfare system is just plain wrong.

As far as our politicians go, we do still have a few “Mr. Smiths” in Washington, but they are few and f ar be t we e n , an d a r e grossly outnumbered by t h e o t he r gu y s . W h y wouldn’t it be fair to apply the same cuts in political salaries and benefits as those cuts veterans will be experiencing? Why can’t w e c u t co n g r es s io n al , presidential and Supreme Court salaries and benefits? Oh yeah, they are the on es c o n tr o l l i ng t he spending. But what if we cut the retirement pen-

trouble falling back to sleep without it. — Remove video games, media players, cell phones, computers and TVs from your child’s bedroom. Pretty obvious advice, I know, but you’d be surprised how often it’s not followed. — Position your child’s alarm clock so that it faces away from the bed. This can be helpful if your child stresses out each time he sees that five more minutes have passed and he’s still awake. — Insist that your child do his homework at a desk (or better yet, outside the bedroom), not in bed. When homework is done in bed, the associated stress doesn’t go away just because the books are closed. Really, it’s the same advice I give



adults with problems sleeping: Use the bed for sleeping, not for reading, watching TV or playing games. (If you regularly do these things in bed and think they help you fall asleep — and you don’t have trouble sleeping — please ignore my advice.) — Keep pets out of your child’s bedroom (and out of his bed!). A great e-book, short and inexpensive, about how to help your child fall asleep and stay asleep is “Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids” by Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Dennis Rosen.

What are the effects of cutting veterans’ funding? An increasing number of veterans are having their requests/claims for benefits delayed (conveniently) until the veteran dies, thus eliminating the need to spend money. Also, we have the widows or surviving spouses of veterans not having their claims processed apparently indefinitely (locally, three in the last two months). One such widow will be out on the street at the end of the month because a determination on her deceased husband’s claims appears to be in “Lala land”, with no resolution being found by the VA, veterans service of ficers, Senatorial and House representatives, interested lawyers, etc. Obviously, this (would not) be the case under our current welfare system. Finally, I have had 12 veterans in the last four weeks (not reported in my column as yet) who have had medical crises for which they could not get (VA approved) local care and were inappropriately referred to the Albuquerque VA for treatment (with the option of going to the local emergency room, which likely will not be paid by the VA) since there are no funds or contracts with providers to handle these emergencies. I have to presume Mr. Smith died with Gen. Jimmy Stewart. God bless.

voted against a bill that affirms the right of citizens to defend themselves against home invasions. The bill ultimately passed. The Sandy Hook shooter reportedly stopped killing children and killed himself when law enforcement of ficers arrived on the scene. This contains no lesson for the gun control crowd, which mostly opposes ar med guards in schools. Neither does it matter to them that recently a Georgia woman, Melinda Herman, shot an intruder when police couldn’t get to her home quickly enough, thus defending her life and the lives of her two children. To gun control advocates, guns decide whether they are used for good or evil, not the people who fire them. If President Obama attempts to impose new restrictions on guns by executive order, not Congress, what can individuals do? I asked constitutional attorney John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute, “a nonprofit conservative legal organization dedicated to the defense of civil, especially religious, liberties and human rights.” “Even if the president has the authority to issue the executive order,” Whitehead replied by email, “the order may not violate the Constitution’s guarantees to individual liberty.

who are harmed by the order could sue to have the order declared unconstitutional.” We need to hear more stories of how law-abiding gun owners have managed to thwart criminals. As the predictable assault of anti-gun TV ads begins, the National Rifle Association should create its own ads with gun owners telling their stories of self-defense and crime prevention. You know rational thinking is lacking when Pravda, Russia’s communist political newspaper, makes sense. In a recent article, Stanislav Mishin writes that after the Bolsheviks seized Moscow in 1917, they promised to leave alone the well-armed citizens if they did not interfere. “They did not and for that were asked afterwards,” writes Mishin, “to come register themselves and their weapons, whereupon they were promptly shot.” The Second Amendment was written to protect citizens from tyrannical government and to preserve our liberties. It’s not primarily for the protection of hunters and target shooters, though they are included. Those politicians who wish to ignore the Constitution are the ones who need to be controlled, not lawabiding gun owners.

NEW YORK (AP) — Listen up! Talk trash to Carmelo Anthony at Madison Square Garden and you may wind up on tape. Days after Anthony’s overreaction to some bad words led to an NBA suspension, MSG chairman James Dolan had listening devices monitoring everything said to and by Anthony, according to a report in the Newark StarLedger. The report Monday said Dolan had two MSG Network audio technicians stationed at opposite corners of the court during Friday’s home game against Chicago. Holding umbrella-shaped parabola microphones, they were told to record Anthony’s interactions and send the tape directly to Dolan himself. The Knicks did not comment on the report. The team left Monday night for a game Thursday in London against Detroit. Anthony and Boston forward Kevin Garnett exchanged words during the Celtics’ 102-96 victory on Jan. 7. Anthony, clearly thrown off his game and finishing just 6-of-26 from the field, then tried to confront Garnett near the locker room and team bus following the game, and received a one-game suspension from the NBA. Anthony would not reveal what was said by Garnett, only that it was something he felt a man shouldn’t say to another man. Dolan apparently wants to ability to hear for himself. Teams routinely send videotape of plays they felt should have been fouls to the league office, and perhaps Dolan wants to be able to provide NBA officials with audio proof of what goes on with Anthony. Dolan hasn’t taken questions from reporters covering the Knicks in nearly six years, but remains keenly interested and insistent in knowing what is going on with the team. Public relations officials used to record interviews with players and coaches, and they continue to listen and take notes of what is said. General manager Glen Grunwald rarely conducts interviews and Dolan is such a stickler for his media rules that when he fired Larry Brown in 2006, he withheld payment for cause because Brown had conducted a roadside interview with reporters without a public relations official present, in violation of MSG rules.


Defense carries Roswell to 13-0 Section

That helped mask Roswell’s offensive struggles. “I wasn’t too pleased offensively in the first quarter,” Cooper said. “It seemed like we couldn’t get of f the schneid. I don’t think we scored a field goal in the first six minutes. “But, once we got going, we were all right.” Roswell did go the first six minutes without a field goal, but then hit three in the final two minutes for a 9-1 lead going to the second. The offensive struggles ended there for the Coyotes. They scored 25 points in

San Diego Chargers hire Mike McCoy NFL COACHING CAROUSEL

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mike McCoy’s interview with San Diego went so well that both sides felt he was a perfect fit to become the Chargers’ new coach. McCoy had one thing to do, though, before accepting the Chargers’ offer, so it was a good thing Chargers President Dean Spanos’ private plane was at his disposal. “There was no doubt in my mind when I got back on that plane to go back home,” said McCoy, the former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator who was introduced Tuesday as Chargers’ new coach. “They wanted to keep me here last night. But I said, ‘I’ve got to talk to my wife about this before. If I made the decision without talking to my wife, I might get in a little trouble.”’ So McCoy flew back to Denver to talk it over with wife Kellie. McCoy, his wife and their two children

were back on the same plane Tuesday morning, flying back to San Diego to take the job. “Without a doubt we knew this was the place we wanted to be,” said McCoy, who signed a four -year contract. McCoy replaces Norv Turner, who was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season. The move comes three days after the top-seeded Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs in a douAP Photo ble-overtime home loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Serena Williams waves to the crowd after her first-round win at the Australian Open, Tuesday. Williams, who won the last two Grand Slam titles of 2012, won 6-0, 6-0 over Edina Gallovits-Hall despite twisting her ankle during the match.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Flat on her back, her sore right ankle raised and her hands covering her face, Serena Williams tried to block out thoughts that her bid for a third straight Grand Slam title might be ruined. After a dominating run the last six months, Williams was a big favorite to win the Australian Open. Suddenly, though, there seemed a way for her to be gone in the first round. “I almost panicked, and I thought, ‘I can’t do that,”’ she said. “I just have to really remain calm and think things through.” The stats showed this was nothing more than a stroll — a 6-0, 6-0 wipeout in 54 minutes of No. 110-ranked Edina Gallovits-Hall at Melbourne Park on Tuesday. Williams conceded only six points in the second set. But this match took significantly longer to complete given the medical timeouts. And while the score may have been painful to her opponent, there was plenty of pain to go around. See SERENA, Page B2

Clovis tops Goddard

CLOVIS — The host Wildcats scored 22 points in each of the first two quarters and ran away from Goddard at Rock Staubus Gymnasium, Tuesday. Clovis scored at least 16 in all four quarters and beat the Rockets 78-48. “We competed and played hard, (Clovis) is just good. They are better than us,” said Rocket coach Kevin Jones. “They are big and strong and they can shoot the 3.” David Sweet led the Rockets (8-8) with 19 points.

NMMI 54, Hondo Valley 45 NMMI led throughout the first three quarters and then had to stave of f an Eagle rally in the fourth for a nine-point win at the Cahoon Armory, Tuesday. The Colts built their lead to as many as 13, but a 103 run by the Eagles over the final part of the third and early part of the fourth

gave them a 41-40 lead. NMMI took the lead back, but Hondo regained it at 45-44. The Colts scored the game’s final 10 points after that, though. Richard Trujillo led the Colts (7-4) with 15 points. Blade Allen added a double-double of 13 points and 19 rebounds.

Tatum 70, Lake Arthur 37 LAKE ARTHUR — After a 10-10 deadlock in the first quarter, the visiting Coyotes won each of the final three quarters by at least nine points en route to a win over the Panthers, Tuesday. Tatum won the second 19-6, the third 19-10 and the fourth 22-11 to get the win. “We played the best first quarter of the season,” said Panther coach Jordon Cooney. “We came out and played, but failed to play the rest.” Luis Velo led the PanSee BRIEFS, Page B2

with our own family so it’s got to be a tight relationship. When he came in, after a little bit of time you could tell he was the right guy for us. We went after him hard.” San Diego was scheduled to interview Indianapolis offensive coordinator Bruce Arians on Wednesday. Telesco, previously the Colts’ vice president of football operations, called Arians on Tuesday morning and told him the Chargers had hired McCoy. “It was a tough phone call,” Telesco said. “I have so much respect for Bruce. He’s an excellent football coach. He’s going to be a great head coach in this league. I was honest with him. I said, ‘There’s different situations, different fits, and right now, this is a fit for Mike McCoy.’ He understood.” McCoy inherits a team that hasn’t won a playoff game since after the 2008 season.


He thanked all the coaches and players he’s worked with over the years for helping him get to this point. He also said he knew just a few minutes into his interview that San Diego was the right place. “They all laughed at me when I walked in yesterday with this big ol’ bag with all these books and binders and everything,” McCoy said. “Well, that’s my life’s work. We’ve got a detailed plan that Tom and I are going to put together. ... There’s going to be some change. There’s a reason for change. And change is good sometimes in organizations. We’ve just got to make the most of the opportunity we have moving forward.” The Broncos have won consecutive AFC West titles. McCoy tutored quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow in 2011, and had Peyton Manning behind center in 2012.

Very detail-oriented, knows the game, relates with players very well,” Broncos wide receiver Brandon Stokley said. “Peyton does a lot but Mike is very good at what he does and he did a great job this year, so a lot of credit needs to go to him, also,” Stokley said. “I think that’s what you need to be a head coach — you need to be flexible. You need to do whatever you think is the best for your team to win and you know that’s what he’s done. You saw that last year.

Anti-doping officials want Armstrong under oath

A televised confession by Lance Armstrong isn’t enough. Anti-doping officials want the disgraced cyclist to admit his guilt under oath before considering whether to lift a lifetime ban clouding his future as a competitive athlete. That was seconded by at least one former teammate whom Armstrong pushed aside on his way to the top of the Tour de France podium. “Lance knows everything that happened,” Frankie Andreu told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “He’s the one who knows who did what because he was the ringleader. It’s up to him how much he wants to expose.” Armstrong has been in conversations with U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials, touching off speculation that he may be willing to cooperate with authorities there and name names. Interviewer Oprah Winfrey didn’t say if the subject was broached during the taping Monday at a downtown Austin hotel. In an appearance on “CBS This Morning,” she declined to give details of what Armstrong told her, but said she was “mesmerized and riveted by some of his answers.” Asked whether the disgraced cyclist appeared genuinely contrite after a decade of fierce denials, Winfrey replied, “I felt that he was thoughtful, I thought that he was serious, I thought that he certainly had prepared for this moment. I would say that he met the moment.” She was promoting what has become a two-part special, Thursday and Friday, on her OWN network. Around the same time, World Anti-Doping Agency officials issued a statement saying nothing short of “a full confession under oath” would cause them to reconsider Armstrong’s lifetime ban from sanctioned events. The International Cycling Union also urged Armstrong to tell his story to an independent commission it has set up to examine claims that the sport’s governing body hid suspicious samples from the cyclist, accepted financial donations from him and helped him avoid detection in doping tests. The ban was only one of several penalties handed to Armstrong after a scathing, 1,000page report by USADA last year. The cyclist was also stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, lost nearly all of his endorsements and was forced to cut ties with the Livestrong cancer charity he founded in 1997. The report portrayed Armstrong as the mastermind of a long-running scheme that employed steroids, blood boosters such as EPO, and a range of other performanceenhancers to dominate the tour. It included revealing testimony from 11 former teammates, including Andreu and his wife, Betsy. “A lot of it was news and shocking to me,” Andreu said. “I am sure it’s shocking to the world. There’s been signs leading up to this moment for a long time. For my wife and I, we’ve been attacked and ripped apart by Lance and all of his people, and all his supporters repeatedly for a long time. I just wish they wouldn’t have been so blind and opened up their eyes earlier to all the signs that indicated there was deception there, so that we wouldn’t have had to suffer as much. “And it’s not only us,” he added, “he’s ruined a lot of people lives.” Armstrong was believed to have left for Hawaii. The street outside his Spanish-style villa on Austin’s west side was quiet the day after international TV crews gathered there hoping to catch a glimpse of him. Nearby, members of his legal team mapped out a strategy on how to handle at least two pending lawsuits against Armstrong, and possibly a third. The AP reported earlier Tuesday that Justice Department officials were likely to join a whistleblower lawsuit against Armstrong by former teammate Floyd Landis, citing a source who works outside the government and requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the record about

made the starter in 2011, but then realized he needed to change the offense. “You take advantage of what your players do best,” McCoy said. With the Chargers, McCoy will work with Philip Rivers, who struggled this season in large part because he was under siege behind a shaky offensive line. Rivers was sacked 49 times and committed 22 turnovers, giving him 47 turnovers in two seasons. “You go through the disappointment from the season and losing your coach to now having a new GM, new coach, and you get excited and ready to go for this 2013 season,” Rivers said.

defense, though. Lovington made just two field goals in the second half — a triple with 15.7 seconds left in the third quarter and a deuce with 6:18 left in the fourth. “Defensively, I don’t have many complaints,” Cooper said. “It was a pretty impressive game. “We’re going to have to play good defense to win a state title and I thought tonight was as solid of a defensive ef fort as we’ve had. When you’ve got size and you can get to help side, and do things like that, you can be effective.” Olguin led three Coyotes in double figures with a game-high 18 points. Olesinski added 16 points and Nava had 14. Israel Bonilla chipped in seven points and a teambest nine boards.


the matter. The lawsuit by Landis, who was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title after testing positive, alleges that Armstrong defrauded the U.S. government by repeatedly denying he used performance-enhancing drugs. The deadline to join the False Claims Act lawsuit, which could require Armstrong to return substantial sponsorship fees and pay a hefty penalty, is Thursday.


Paul McGinley is Europe’s 2014 Ryder Cup captain

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Paul McGinley was chosen as Europe’s Ryder Cup captain for 2014, ending a chaotic campaign marked by a late challenge from former captain Colin Montgomerie. McGinley, a 46-year-old Irishman, replaces Jose Maria Olazabal, whose team rallied to victory over the United States in October at Medinah, outside Chicago. Europe will defend the trophy at Gleneagles, Scotland. “To lead the cream of the crop in the Ryder Cup is going to be a huge honor,” McGinley said at a news conference Tuesday. “To be quite honest, it is a very humbling experience to be sitting in this seat. It is a week I’m looking forward to. It’s a whole new experience for me, the chanced to be a captain.” Top-ranked Rory McIlroy spoke forcefully Monday and Tuesday in favor of the new captain. He said Montgomerie would be less motivated because he captained the winning 2010 Ryder Cup team. “Common sense prevailed in the end.... Paul McGinley 2014 European Ryder Cup captain!!! Couldn’t be happier for him... Roll on Gleneagles,” McIlroy tweeted. McIlroy later appeared at the news conference to welcome the new captain. “He makes you feel so good about yourself,” McIlroy said. The European Tour’s tournament committee in Abu Dhabi made the unanimous decision after a nearly three-hour meeting. It also considered Montgomerie, Sandy Lyle, Miguel Angel Jimenez and Paul Lawrie. Montgomerie had earlier said it would be a dream to captain the team in his home country of Scotland. He left without making a comment. The decision ended a messy few days in which Darren Clarke pulled out of the consideration for the position, preferring to concentrate on his own game. His decision prompted Montgomerie to launch his late bid. That, in turn, brought a stream of support for McGinley on Monday. “I read and followed every word that went down the last few weeks, I have to say, and watched with interest. Like a yo-yo, my chances seemed to go up and down and up and down,” McGinley said. “It’s also a situation I’m relishing and I can’t wait to get into the role of being the captain, working with the players, particularly the players that have shown such huge support for me obviously in the last few weeks.” Thomas Bjorn, chairman of the players’ committee, said all the candidates were discussed thoroughly and the committee fully backed McGinley. “I think that as a captain, he will bring the Tour even more together,” said Bjorn, who joined McGinley at the news conference. “He is one of us. There has never been a distance to Paul. He’s a guy you can talk to. He’s got great opinions and he’s been fantastic in The Ryder Cup.” Three-time major champion Padraig Harrington said McGinley was exceedingly popular among the players and well organized. Harrington, also from Ireland, called it a great day for Irish golf. “He comes in with the most support of the players who will play under him,” Harrington said. “There was massive outpouring from the guys who will likely be on that team. It is

a great position for him. That is no slight against Monty. He did a great job when he was Ryder Cup captain, but the guys think it’s time for someone else. Paul is the man.” McGinley acknowledged he doesn’t have the playing record of some previous captains but felt he brings an uncanny ability to win as part of a team. He has been on three Ryder Cup-winning teams and was vice captain for Europe in 2010 and for the improbable comeback win last year at Medinah. The Americans last month picked Tom Watson to captain the U.S. team at Gleneagles. Watson will be 65 when the event starts, making him by far the oldest man to fill the role and the first repeat captain for the United States since 1987. But he’s also the last American to lead the team to victory on the road in 1993, and he knows how to win in the blustery Scottish weather.

The first set was 4-0 after 19 minutes at Hisense Arena when her tumble near the baseline diverted attention on Day Two from center court, where a day session featuring Roger Federer, Murray and Andy women’s champion Victoria Azarenka was under way. After some deep breaths, the 31-year-old Willlams pulled herself together, got to her hands and knees for a few minutes and gradually to her feet. Her already heavily taped ankle was assessed and retaped. She went back on court and won the next four points to get herself to another changeover, and more attention from the doctor. She went back and held another service game to clinch the set, giving her time for more treatment. “A very similar thing happened to me last year, almost on the same side, the same shot,” Williams said, referring to a fall that forced her to pull out of the Brisbane International last year and contributed to her fourthround exit at the Australian Open. She expects to at least start her second-round match Thursday against Spain’s Garbine Muguruza, who beat Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 4-6, 6-1, 14-12 — the final set lasted more than two hours. “Oh, I’ll be out there,” Williams said. “I mean, unless something fatal happens to me, there’s no way I’m not going to be competing.

Azarenka has lost 11 of her 12 matches against Williams, including the U.S. Open final. Even if Williams is on one leg, Azarenka is still wary of the 15-time Grand Slam champion.

Welcoming President Obama

Celebrating Democracy photo by U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Cecilio Ricardo

Were you following the campaign last year? The election process shows just how lucky we are. In America, we get to choose our leaders. In November, voters re-elected President Barack Obama. On Monday, Jan. 21, the nation celebrates our democracy with the 57th presidential inauguration (in-AHG-yur-AY-shun) ceremony. An inauguration is the official swearing-in ceremony for a nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president.

A special day

Working with hope

The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faith in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Future.â&#x20AC;? It honors Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unity and strength even in times of trial. The theme also pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of the Statue of Freedom. This symbol of liberty was placed on top of the new Capitol dome in 1863. At that time, it looked as if the Civil War would prevent the completion of the Statue of Freedom Capitol dome.

Work on the Capitol dome was often dangerous and very hard. But workers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up, even working without pay. African-Americans who began working on the dome as slaves stayed as free men to help finish the Capitol.

The U.S. Constitution sets Inauguration Day as Jan. 20. But in 2013, that date falls on a Sunday. So Congress moved the 2013 ceremonies to Monday. Jan. 21 is also Martin Luther King Jr. Day, honoring the great civil rights leader. He fought for rights at a time when Martin Luther African-Americans King Jr. were often prevented from voting. In honor of Martin Luther Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work for peace, the first family is urging everyone to participate in a National Day of Service on Saturday, Jan. 19.

Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th president of the United States on Jan. 20, 2009. Michelle Obama witnesses the ceremony. On Jan. 21, 2013, President Obama will publicly take the oath of office for the second time. He plans to take the oath of office privately on Sunday, Jan. 20, the usual Inauguration Day. Vice President Joe Biden will also take his second oath of office during these ceremonies.

President Lincoln saw the completion of the Capitol dome as a sign that America would survive as one nation.

Dancing the night away

After the swearing-in ceremony and speeches, and after lunch, the president and the first lady lead the inaugural parade from the Capitol to the White House. The first parades began as military escorts for the president. By 1841, floats and bands were traditional. In 1865, at Abraham Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second inauguration, African-American men were allowed to march for the first time. Women were first allowed to parade in 1917 at Woodrow Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second inauguration.

After the parade and other inaugural festivities, the president and first lady go dancing. There are usually about 10 official inaugural balls. There might also be about 100 unofficial balls going on throughout Washington, D.C., that night. Americans threw the first ball about a week after President George Washington became president in 1789. However, it did not become a traditional part of the festivities until 1809, when first lady Dolley Madison hosted a ball after James Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inauguration.

Inspiring the World People around the world find inspiration in the inaugural ceremonies of the U.S. president. Usually, U.S. presidents have taken their oath of office in public. But sometimes, as when a president has died in office, the vice president takes the oath in private. This is the promise, or oath, that the president makes:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Abraham Lincoln takes the oath of office at his second inauguration in 1865. Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Words that live through time United States.â&#x20AC;? After taking the oath of office, the president usually gives a speech, or inaugural address. Most historians regard the inaugural addresses of Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano 2OOSEVELTAND*OHN&+ENNEDYAS some of the most inspirational in history.

John F. Kennedy is sworn into office in 1961. The Mini Page thanks Matt House, Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is about the U.S. Supreme Court.

The promise

Abraham Lincoln â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1861 During his inaugurations, Abraham Lincoln faced a country torn apart by the Civil War. He used the power of his words to try to heal the nation. In 1861, he made a final effort to keep the country together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.â&#x20AC;? He appealed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the better angels of our nature.â&#x20AC;?

President Lincoln â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1865 Near the end of the Civil War, white people and newly freed black people gathered together to hear President Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words of healing. Historians believe that John Wilkes Booth, who would soon assassinate Lincoln, may have been in the audience. President Lincoln urged people to get along together: â&#x20AC;&#x153;With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.â&#x20AC;? Franklin D. Roosevelt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1933 America was in the Great Depression, when many Americans WEREPOOR0RESIDENT2OOSEVELT encouraged people, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.â&#x20AC;? John F. Kennedy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1961 President Kennedy spoke at a time when America and the former Soviet Union came near the brink of nuclear war. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ask what you can do for your country.â&#x20AC;?

though I know I can’t have him. I don’t want to lose him as my friend, but it hurts seeing him and Jeff together. How do I resolve this? GIRL LEFT BEHIND IN CALIFORNIA


DEAR LEFT BEHIND: Start by being as honest with Myles as he was with you. Tell him that over the course of your friendship you fell in love with him — and that you wish you had known he was gay before you became so emotionally involved. If you want romance, you will have to look for it elsewhere. In order for you to find it, I cannot stress strongly enough that you will need to feel good about yourself. Stop torturing yourself by visiting the two lovebirds and take a break for a while. A LONG while. #####


DEAR ABBY: “Myles” and I have known each other for five years, but have grown really close over the past three. We tell each other everything, and I have fallen in love with him. A few months ago, Myles sent me a text saying he needed to tell me a “secret.” He went on to say the guy he had told me was his brother, “Jeff,” is really his lover. Needless to say, that bombshell floored me. We have discussed it in person, and I have never told him how I feel. I visit them a couple of times a month and always go home feeling hurt. I want Myles for myself, even

DEAR ABBY: I am a 36-year-old woman who has never been married or had children. For the past two years I’ve been seeing a man I’ll call Frank. I


love him deeply, and I believe he feels the same about me. Frank is still married but legally separated from his wife. They have one child who lives with his mom. Frank lives with me, and Frank’s wife lives with another man and has a second child by yet another guy. My problem is, Frank’s wife calls ME whenever she has a fight with her boyfriend. She confides in me like I’m her best friend. I have never talked to Frank about divorcing her, but I’m at my wit’s end over this whole circle. Sometimes I feel like I’m wasting my time with him. Abby, I’m a longtime reader who needs to find a solution to this soap opera. Please help me. GETTING DIZZY IN EAST BOSTON DEAR GETTING DIZZY: You need to talk to Frank about his degree of commitment to you. Two years is a long time to live with someone who’s married to someone else — let alone be trying to solve his wife’s love problems. Perhaps it’s time to distance yourself from both

of them and figure out what you want to do for YOU. #####

DEAR ABBY: My friend “Maggie” is getting a divorce. She has been living with my husband and me for four months. She pays one-third of our utility bill but pays no rent. My husband feels that since Maggie is living with us, she should pay something — even if it’s only $100 a month. She’s a lifelong friend, and I don’t know what to do. Maggie is very upset over her messy divorce. Should I ask her for rent money? (I don’t want to fight over this with my husband.) ONLY FRIEND IN KENTUCKY DEAR ONLY FRIEND: It depends on Maggie’s financial circumstances. If she has the money, it’s certainly OK to ask. If she doesn’t have the resources — or a job — she should consider finding one so she’s not completely financially dependent on others.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

Dear Heloise: I use a drip coffee maker, and my COFFEE LOSES HEAT as it sits in the cup. So, with the first cup, I pour hot coffee into it to prewarm the cup. I then pour that cup back into the carafe and pour a second hot cup of coffee. The coffee stays warmer longer in the preheated cup, and the first cup is reheated in the carafe. R.K., Columbus, Ohio

This is such a simple hint — I love it! Coffee and tea are so popular, and during the cold winter, a hot, delicious cup is the perfect treat, which is why I wrote my Heloise’s Flavored Coffees and Teas pamphlet. To receive one, simply send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Coffee, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Did you know that January is National Hot Tea Month? When you make a cup of your favorite tea, stir it with a cinnamon stick for added spice flavor! Heloise


For Better or For Worse


Dear Heloise: Recently, I used a recipe that called for 2 tablespoons of halfand-half. That left me with a nearly full carton. Since I’m not a coffee drinker, could you tell me some other uses for half-and-half? Christi A., via email

You can use leftover half-and-half for several things. Add it to scrambled eggs, as a substitute for cream in recipes, for chocolate ganache (an icing, decoration or glaze on desserts), or in favorite cream sauces. You also can freeze it for up to two months. Heloise #####

Dear Readers: Here is a hint about groceries that works well in my home. When my husband or I use the last of a product, we tear off the label and leave it on the counter or put it in the clothespin attached inside the pantry door. Whoever goes to the grocery store first knows exactly what item size and brand to pick up. Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: We buy our deer corn in bags that are reinforced plastic. Very sturdy! Does anyone out there reuse these bags? We use them to store items in the workshop/garage, but I have so many and would like to do something with them. Any ideas would be appreciated. — A Reader, via email They can be used to cover plants in the winter or collect leaves in. They are great as a stronger garbage bag. Also, they can be used as a second bag around birdseed or other animal food bags! Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: My solution for removing tea stains from cups is using lemon juice. I buy the fake lemons with juice to leave sitting on my counter. After drinking the tea, I rinse the cup, then add a few drops of lemon juice, swish with a finger and the stain is gone. This is so simple. Carol in Minnesota

Wall Street falters as US borrowing limit debate intensifies

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks edged lower on Wall Street Tuesday as tensions flared in Washington over increasing the country’s borrowing limit. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told congressional leaders in a letter late Monday that the U.S. government will reach its borrowing limit as soon as midFebruary, earlier than expected. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke also commented on the issue Monday, saying it was one of the “critical fiscal watersheds” for the government in coming weeks. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 11 points to 13,495 as of 1:52 p.m. EST, having been down as much as 61 points in early trading. The Standard and Poor’s 500 dropped two points to 1,468, the Nasdaq composite index fell 13 points to 3,105. President Barack Obama has criticized congressional Republicans for linking talks over raising the debt ceiling to ongoing budget negotiations. Obama said the consequences of the U.S. government defaulting on its debt would be disastrous and shouldn’t be used as a bargaining chip to extract concessions on spending cuts. “We are very concerned how the market

is going to respond to all the news events that will be coming out of Washington over the next few months,” said Eric Wiegand, a senior portfolio manager at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. “It really comes down to the uncertainty and the risk of a further downgrade of our debt.” Markets were roiled in the summer of 2011 as lawmakers haggled over an increase to the debt limit. The dispute cost the U.S. its AAA ranking from the creditrating firm Standard and Poor’s. The U.S. fiscal crisis is still the biggest single individual risk facing investors, with 37 percent of investors naming it as the biggest worry, according to a survey of fund managers published by Bank of America Merrill Lynch Tuesday. The European debt crisis was cited as the biggest concern by 23 percent of those polled and a “hard landing” for the Chinese economy was third on the list with 12 percent. Apple fell $14 to $487.50, its third daily drop. The stock hasn’t closed below $500 in almost a year. Apple slumped 3.6 percent Monday on concern that demand for its iPhone 5 is slowing. Nomura analysts today lowered their target price for the

stock to $530 from $660 and cut their estimates for iPhone sales this year. Stocks dropped Tuesday despite a report that retail sales increased in December. Consumers bought more autos, furniture and clothing, despite worries about potential tax increases. Sales rose 0.5 percent in December from November, slightly better than November’s 0.4 percent increase and the best showing since September, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Investors may be more concerned about January’s retail figures now that the increase in the Social Security payroll tax has come into effect, said Doug Cote, chief market strategist at ING Investment Management. The tax jumped back to 6.2 percent earlier this month after President Barack Obama failed to win renewal of the temporary 2 percentage point payroll tax cut that’s been in place for two years, as part of a deal that stopped the U.S. going over the “fiscal cliff.” “The market is kind of looking past it because of the change in the tax regime,” said ING’s Cote. “Are consumers going to be able to spend like they did in December

The outlook for manufacturing in New York state worsened in January, according to survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The bank’s Empire State Manufacturing Survey produced a reading of minus 7.8 for the month, indicating contraction.

Both the S&P 500 and the Dow are up on the year, having surged in the first week of January after lawmakers reached a lastminute budget deal to stop the economy going over the “cliff.” The agreement prevented a series of tax increases and spending cuts that would probably have pushed the U.S. economy back into recession, according to economists. Optimism about the outlook for global growth has also boosted stocks.

The S&P 500 is up 2.9 percent this year and closed at a five -year high of 1,472 last week. The 30-member Dow is up 3 percent since the start of 2013. The yield on the 10-year Treasury price, which moves inversely to its price, fell 1 basis point to 1.83 percent.

Facebook unveils Wal-Mart plans to hire vets, buy American social search feature MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new search feature Tuesday in the company’s first staged event at its Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters since its May initial public offering. Called “graph search,” the new service lets users search their social connections for information about people, interests, photos and places. It’ll help users who, for instance, want to scroll through all the photos their friends have taken in Paris or search for the favorite TV shows of all their friends who happen to be doctors. Until now, Facebook users were unable to search for friends who live in a certain town or like a particular movie. Zuckerberg says the search feature is “privacy aware,” which means users can only search for content that has been shared with them. Still, the company will have to make it clear to users that the new feature isn’t unearthing information about them that wasn’t already available. Facebook is stressing that graph search will be made available to users very slowly, beginning Tuesday. Though the company has focused on refining its mobile product for much of last year, the search feature will only be available on Facebook’s website for now, and only in English. It will likely take more than a year for search to be available to all of Facebook’s more than 1 billion users as the company’s engineers and designers tweak the service based on how people use it. Though Zuckerberg stressed that “graph search” is different from traditional Web search, the expanded feature escalates an already fierce duel between Google and Facebook as they grapple for the attention of Web surfers and revenue from online advertisers. Zuckerberg hinted last fall that a search feature was in the works in his first post-IPO public interview. But investors — some of whom may have been hoping for a long-rumored and always-denied “Facebook phone” — didn’t seem impressed.

NEW YORK (AP) — Why wait on Washington to fix the economy when there’s Wal-Mart? Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer and the biggest private employer in the U.S. with 1.4 million workers here, said Tuesday that it is rolling out a threepart plan to help jumpstart the sluggish U.S. economy. The plan includes hiring more than 100,000 veterans in the next five years, spending $50 billion to buy more American-made merchandise in the next 10 years and helping its part-time workers move into full-time positions sooner. The move comes as Wal-Mart attempts to bolster its reputation, which has been hit in the past year by an alleged bribery scandal in Mexico and a deadly fire at a Bangladesh factory that supplies clothes to the company. The company, which often is criticized for its low-paying jobs and buying habits in the U.S., said it wants to highlight the career opportunities in the retail industry, which supports one in four jobs in the country. Wal-Mart certainly is in a position to boost the U.S. economy: With $444 billion in annual revenue, if WalMart were a country, it would rank among the largest economies in the world. At the center of Wal-Mart’s plan is a pledge to hire veterans, many of who have come home from Afghanistan and Iraq are had a particularly hard time finding jobs. The unemployment rate for veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan stood at 10.8 percent in December, compared with the overall unemployment rate of 7.8 percent. Wal-Mart said it plans to hire every veteran who wants a job and has been honorably discharged in the first 12 months of active duty. The program, which will start on Memorial Day, will include jobs mostly in Wal-Mart’s stores or in its Sam’s Club locations. Some will be at its headquarters, based in Bentonville, Ark. or the company’s distribution centers.

Wal-Mart employees Jon Christians and Lori Harris take job applications and answers questions, Thursday, Sept. 1, 2011, during a job fair at the University of Illinois Springfield campus in Springfield, Ill.

In addition to hiring veterans, Wal-Mart said that it will spend $50 billion to buy more products made in the U.S. over the next 10 years. According to data from Wal-Mart’s suppliers, items that are made, sourced or grown in the U.S. account for about two-thirds of the company’s spending on products for its U.S. business Wal-Mart said that it plans to focus on buying more in areas such as sporting goods, fashion basics, storage products, games and paper products. The commitment comes as economics are changing for making goods overseas. Labor costs are rising in Asia, while oil and transportation costs are high and increasingly uncertain. The final piece of Wal-Mart’s plan is to help part-time Wal-Mart workers transition into full-time employment.
