Madden: Mill levy would help sustain programs JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

After the traumatic events of Tuesday, many people may have forgotten that this week they have the opportunity to vote on the mill levy for Eastern New Mexico University Roswell. Voting machines have been set up at the Joseph R. Skeen building, 1 St. Mary’s Place, and one at the ENMU-R campus in Roswell. Absentee voters need to write to Chaves County Clerk’s of fice to obtain a ballot. For those who prefer to wait, the vote

polling places will take place on Feb. 4. ENMU-R President John Madden spoke passionately about the levy. “There’s a lot of misinformation. A lot of people think this is a bond issue, but it is a mill levy. A bond is usually for a specific purpose, such as the construction of the new building. Mills cover operational costs.” For the private citizen, the millage rate is synonymous with the property tax rate. “Millage” is based on a Latin word that means “thousandth.” So 1 mill is equivalent to 1/1000th.

The current millage rate in Chaves County is 1 mill; however, this 1 operational mill goes directly to state gover nment for public school. Institutions of higher education don’t see a cent of this money. “We are retiring the old bond issue. The projects, the Campus Union and the Health Sciences Center, have come in early and under budget. That is good news.” The current property tax rate, including the bond, is $64.40 per $100,000 value. Once the bond issue is retired, the property tax rate will go down to $29.90

per $100,000. With the additional millages, if voted in, the rate would be $96.57 per $100,000. Madden said this represents an increase in property tax rate of about $32 per year for a $100,000 property. The mill levy, if voted in, will pay salaries, utilities and basic maintenance costs. “We have cut the workforce by one-third in the past few years,” said Madden. “We provide a benefit for the community. People see it every day. The nurses in the hospitals may be an See LEVY, Page A3

Opponents say levy will cost more than thought JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

The mill levy has its opponents, such as Hudson Boue. “He (President Madden) says that this is not a 200 percent increase. We’re not saying that this is a 200 percent increase in property taxes, but it is a 200 percent increase in millage.”

Boue argues that if the bond issue was retired, that property owners could have seen some relief, a cut of about onethird in property taxes. Howver, if the millage is voted in, he said property owners will be seeing not a decrease but an increase from 1 to 3 See COST, Page A3

County concerned about the possible loss of PILT funds JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER

County commissioners expressed concern at their meeting Thursday about the county’s potential loss of more than $2 million in federal funding this year. Chairman James Duffey and Commissioner Greg Nibert will travel to Washington in April to discuss the issue. Commissioner Robert Corn will travel to Washington in March. “It’s going to be a sad day if we lose 1/12th of our revenue,” Corn said. The county receives some

$2.8 million in Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) funding every year from the federal government to offset losses in property taxes for federal lands within county boundaries.

The PILT payments are made annually for taxexempt lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Forest Service, and for federal water projects and some military installations.

Congress passes bill to cut horse slaughter JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER

The monumental spending bill passed by Congress and sent to the President Thursday night would cut spending for horse slaughter inspections in the U.S. Valley Meat Company will continue to fight to open, despite the federal government action. “We’re not done yet,” said attorney A. Blair Dunn. Valley Meat and a proposed horse slaughter plant in Missouri will look into filing a claim against the federal government that the funding violates

Dunn also represents Rains Natural Meats of Gallatin, Mo. “That was not a very smart thing for Congress to have done,” Dunn said. “We’re going to see what we can do.” Dunn will still pursue claims for damages against animal rights activists and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King.

defund the USDA’s inspection of horse slaughter plants in his 1,500-page budget first proposed in April. The action would reverse a federal reinstatement of the practice that was shut down by the federal government in 2006. Funding was restored in 2011. Sen. Tom Udall voted in favor of the $1.01 trillion appropriations measure, that passed the Senate 7226. The funds are expected to keep government afloat until September. “I’m extremely pleased that Congress was able to come together with strong bipartisan votes and pass the omnibus bill, and I’m

confident the president will move quickly to sign it,” Udall said in a press release. The bill was extremely important to New Mexico’s labs, military bases and other federal installations that keep the nation secure. The installations provide high-quality jobs and support the state’s economy, Udall said.

State finds no fraud by providers

SANTA FE (AP) — Attorney General Gary King’s office said Thursday that authorities found no fraud by a behavioral health provider in Alamogordo that came under scrutiny in an investigation into Medicaid billing by nonprofit mental health providers. The announcement came as the attorney general finished its investigation of the first of more than a dozen nonprofit mental health providers that had their Medicaid payments suspended last year by the Human Services Department because of allegations of fraud, mismanagement and billing problems. Even though his office found no fraud, King said it identified Medicaid overbillings of $19,023 based on claims it reviewed. The agency won’t disclose how many Medicaid claims it examined because that’s part of its investigative records, according to Phil Sisneros, a spokesman for

the attorney general. No criminal charges will be brought against The Counseling Center in Alamogordo based on the attorney general’s investigation. It’s up to the department to recover money from improper billings for mental health and substance abuse services. After suspending Medicaid payments last summer, the state contracted with Arizona companies to take over providing services that had been handled by the Counseling Center and other nonprofits. Behavorial health services can range from treatment for drug and alcohol abuse to suicide prevention and counseling for mental disorders. Counseling Center CEO Jim Kerlin said the provider was out of business and he disputed there were overbillings. Services Human spokesman Matt Kennicott said the department suspects that overbillings are

much higher than $19,000 and it will investigate claims involving the Alamogordo nonprofit now that the attorney general finished reviewing the fraud allegations. “Medicaid funding is intended to support those in need, and even though provable fraud couldn’t be shown in this case, taxpayers have a right to recover significant overbillings and overpayments, in this case over hundreds of thousands of dollars,” Kennicott said in a statement. Kerlin said it’s doubtful the nonprofit would resume operations as a mental health treatment provider because it no longer had any assets. He said the organization would fight to collect payments withheld by the state for an estimated $400,000 in services to Medicaid patients during the period leading up to the takeover by an Arizona company. “They put us out of busi-

ness. I don’t see any way that can be turned around now,” said Kerlin, who served as CEO for 25 years. He said the provider had once served 900 to 1,000 Medicaid-eligible patients annually through clinics in Alamogordo and Ruidoso. Kerlin said he hoped the Legislature would change state law to ensure that mental health providers have more due process rights when fraud allegations are made by the department, which administers the Medicaid program. The department has maintained that federal regulations required it to halt Medicaid payments and turn over fraud allegations to the attorney general’s office to investigate. Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, an Albuquerque Democrat, said he expected the state could face lawsuits from mental health providers that were forced out of business.

27 NM counties qualify for federal drought aid

upcoming legislative session on the awarding by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration of a state fairgrounds lease for a horse racing track and casino. Rules Committee chairwoman Sen. Linda Lopez, an Albuquerque Democrat who is running for governor against Martinez, said Thursday the panel wants to question current and former State Fair commissioners about the 2011 lease awarded to the Downs at Albuquerque allowing the construction of a larger casino at the fairgrounds. A union-funded political group and other Martinez critics contend the lease was rushed through to benefit Martinez political supporters. The governor’s office has said that political contributions didn’t influence decisions on the fairgrounds lease. Martinez spokesman Enrique Knell said the planned hearing would be a “petty, political circus.”

They say a male officer was struck in the face by the suspect and was being treated at a hospital. Police say 40-year -old Anthony Abeyta allegedly attacked both officers. He’s in custody and facing multiple charges. They say an adult female inside the home sustained serious injuries in the domestic violence incident and also was taken to a hospital for treatment. Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry says it just shows how dangerous it can be to be a police officer. Berry says he’s hoping for a fast and complete recovery for the victims.

A 49-count indictment in December 2012 charged the couple with conspiracy, theft from programs receiving federal funds and theft of government property. Carmella Martinez admitted stealing the federal funds between November 2003 and December 2011 when she was TCHA’s financial specialist and later its executive director. The federal Housing and Urban Development funds to the TCHA were for a housing program that provides affordable housing for low-income Americans.

STATE BRIEFS

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Farmers and ranchers in 27 New Mexico counties who have recorded losses due to the drought will now be able to apply for federal emergency loans. New Mexico’s congressional delegation made the announcement Wednesday. The emergency loans from the Far m Service Agency will be capped at $500,000. The money can be used to restore or replace essential property and to pay all for part of production costs associated with the disaster. The money can also be used for essential living expenses and to refinance certain debts. Dry conditions have plagued much of New Mexico for the last three years. The latest federal drought map shows nearly every square mile of the state dealing with abnormally dry conditions to extreme drought.

Jason Leadingham, 34, died on Monday in a tragic accident that occurred on Pirtle Farms. Chief Deputy Britt Snyder of the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office said Leadingham was attempting to break apart silage when a chunk, weighing 4,000 pounds, fell on him. “Some of these stacks are about 200 feet high,” Snyder said. His vehicle was found still running, but Leadingham was nowhere to be seen. The CCSO was notified while people started digging in an attempt to find him. “There is no known cause of death until the autopsy is completed. It could have been the weight of the silage or suffocation,” said Snyder.

It’s going to cost me 14.2 percent more to live in 2014 to maintain the same standard of living I had in 2013,” Boue said. He pointed to people with fixed income, such as retirees who have no other resources, who will not only have to struggle to deal with general cost of living increase, but now additional property taxes. He also believes ENMUR has an unfair advantage, with only two voting machines for the entire county, one at the Base and one in the County Adminstration building. The college has been registering students for months and research revealed a voter recruitment story appeared in the ENMU-R newsletter as early as September 2013. For many, it will be a hardship to get to either the college or the county building to take advantage of early voters. “He (Madden) admitted

for students who were not able to graduate from high school, and he said for some families this may be the first member of the family that ever graduated from high school. “We are the most community oriented. Our students are top notch. We have the greatest variety of programs of any college in the entire state. Many people have a favorite program — the air center, hospital studies, alternative energy programs. Without this millage, we will have to cut programs,” Madden said. He listed other programs, including the commercial drivers’ program and welding classes. The loss of programs could result in businesses having to bring in talent

from out of state. “The benefits of the institution go far beyond the student in the classroom,” he explained. In addition, depending on the program, students may have to go far away to receive their education. Even the nearest college can provide no replacement. “Portales has no nursing program, no automotive program,” he said. Madden assured the community that ENMU-R would not be closing its doors, but the amount of services and the classes they can offer will be drastically reduced. “We’re not going out of business, but if we eliminate a program, it’s gone for good.”

at the (Chaves County Republican Women) luncheon that the millage will not end as a bond issue ends when a project is complete. It will continue,” Boue said. Carrie Hollifield of Brown Ranch concurs with Boue’s assesment, but she speaks from a county perspective. “I represent the county perspective, the farmers’ perspective and the ranchers’ perspective.” She said that property taxes for far mers and ranchers included every outbuilding, every shed, every head of cattle and the land in addition to their homes. “We have just come out of 2 ½ years of the worst drought since the dustbowl days. We sold cattle because we just didn’t have the grass to feed them. This means a loss in next year’s income. We were lucky. We do farming so we could grow feed, but others could not and they will never come back. It just breaks your heart. ... Chaves County lost two, possibly three, dairies this last year.” She resents the college’s attitude. “He (Madden) says we don’t understand, but I went to the county treasurer and I know exactly what it will cost me — $1,000 per year, and this

mill levy is not going to go away. This will last forever.” The assessed value of the family’s lives stock is $109,000 and had they been able to count on the reduced property taxes, a multiple of 1 mill. “Now I have to multiply it by three.” Hollifield recognizes the benefit of education and supports higher education, but said, “this is not the time for it.” “You won’t see a sunset on this mill levy. There is no end date on this. I’m absolutely against that. You don’t hand your wallet over to somebody and let them keep it. Hollifield, like Boue, also discussed increased costs. “The cost of corn and feed have skyrocketed, with most cor n going for ethanol production rather than animal or human consumption. “My health insurance increased 65 percent this year. Small business owners have been hit hard while middle-sized business have been protected, at least until 2014.” She, too, cited certain income tax incentives or deductions which are no longer available to the tax payer. “I don’t mind a bond issue, it goes away eventually. This will stay with us forever.”

Commissioners approved a decrease of $53,656 in the construction contract for Bradbury Stamm, the contractor working on renovations and an addition to the county’s adult and juvenile detention center. County staff, the architect and the contractor coordinated and identified several areas where changes could be made, resulting in the cost reductions, according to the staff report. John Mulcahy, the new president of the Chaves County-Roswell Economic Development Corporation, updated commissioners on his priorities for the region. Mulcahy said he plans to focus on workforce development, marketing and project recruitment. “There are more open jobs than employed people,” Mulcahy said. We’re looking for people to hire into higher-wage jobs. Mulcahy said he plans to

meet with the Department of Workforce Solutions and cast a dragnet to bring people to Roswell. “We’re going to reach out to them and fill the jobs we have,” he said. “We will take a look with leaders to see what their needs are and try and bring more people in here to fill those jobs and raise the economy.” The corporation will also look into tools and methods to put more information online about Roswell and Chaves County, Mulcahy said. Several employees were recognized for their longtime employment with the county, including Sheriff Rob Coon for 15 years, and Riggs for 20 years.

Commissioner James Duffey testified as a resident at a hearing in Santa Fe. The company is currently being sued by the attorney general. King is trying to obtain a preliminary injunction against the plant, claiming the company will violate state water quality and food safety laws if it’s allowed to open. A ruling is expected today. “It seems like to me this may just have been an action to prolong it until the feds vote on this next

But for the last few years, lawmakers have failed to meet even a minimum standard of competence. The public has reacted to this dismal performance with appropriate disdain.

forged the budget deal will be under fierce attack from the “partisan warriors” when Congress returns in January to face a host of critical issues: renewing food stamps, raising the debt ceiling and resolving the status of 11 million undocumented immigrants. The spirit of compromise that sparked to life this week is still very weak. It will take strong leaders and political savvy to keep it burning in the New Year. Leaders like Rep. Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican, and Sen. Patty Murray, the Washington Democrat, who hand-crafted the budget deal. They did what practical legislators should do. They actually listened to each other. They emphasized what united them instead of what divided them. They placed the national interest over partisan advantage. “This deal is a compromise,”

said Murray. “[It] takes the first steps towards rebuilding our broken budget process and hopefully, toward rebuilding our broken Congress.” Added Ryan: “This is good government; it’s also divided government. And under divided gover nment, we need to take steps in the right direction.” They might seem like an odd couple, but both lawmakers come by their pragmatism honestly. R yan worked for the late Jack Kemp, a classic “big tent” Republican who loved to joke that as a professional football player, he took showers every day with the

kinds of folks “most Republicans never meet.” Murray originally got into politics as a volunteer, organizing to preserve a local preschool program. After 21 years, she is the fourth most senior woman in the Senate (out of 20), and female lawmakers from both parties have always fostered relationships that bridge partisan differences. Building on the Murray-Ryan deal will also require House Speaker John Boehner to continue his courageous campaign against the outside ideologues who have repeatedly torpedoed his efforts to work with President Obama and Congressional Democrats. Boehner is a professional legislator who finally exploded in anger at conservative agitators — from groups like Heritage Action and Freedom Works — who automatically condemned the budget

deal before they’d even read it. “Frankly, I think they’re misleading their followers,” he thundered. “And frankly, I just think that they’ve lost all credibility.” Boehner spoke for many Republicans who fear the tea party and its acolytes are pushing the GOP into a disastrous dead end. Some are following the speaker’s lead, expressing resentments that have simmered for years — and finally boiled over. Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin, for example, told “Morning Joe” on MSNBC: “You have people on our side of the aisle that have a really abrasive tone. We can come across as knuckle-dragging Neanderthals on occasion.” Conservative commentator Linda Chavez, who worked in the Reagan White House, denounced the “kamikaze wing” of her own party.

LBJ’s ‘Great Society’ at 50: ensuring a nation’s safety net

Fifty years after President Lyndon Johnson declared “unconditional war on poverty,” no one can reasonably argue that the government’s massive effort didn’t help. It’s more a question of how much it helped. And today, it’s a question of how to make these essential programs more effective and sustainable for a new generation. In his watershed speech, coming just about six weeks after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, LBJ promised to “cure” poverty. By that measure, of course, he failed. Four in 10 children in Milwaukee remain impoverished. And in the hill country of Appalachia, where the new president launched his effort in the spring of 1964, poverty remains stubbornly entrenched. At the same time, Johnson’s policies widened the fault line between Americans over the role of government in their lives — between those who want limited government and those who look to government to solve problems. This widening of the RepublicanDemocrat split created by Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal is a legacy of Johnson’s vision. In time, the Great Society would include an array of new initiatives: Medicare and Medicaid, the first direct federal aid to school districts, Head Start, food stamps, environmental legislation, the Job Corps to provide vocational education, urban renewal programs, national endowments for the arts and humanities, civil rights legislation and an expanded Social Security program. The combined effect of these programs drove poverty down significantly from 1967 to 2012, according to a recent study by economists at Columbia University. Researchers found that if government transfers are included in the mix, poverty fell from 26 percent to 16 percent. As The Washington Post’s Wonk Blog pointed out last week, government intervention is the only reason there are fewer Americans living in poverty now than 45 years ago. In 2012, about 4 million people were spared from poverty by food stamps alone. But persistent poverty in both urban and rural America remains a significant problem. So does income inequality, which is the widest it has been since the 1920s. We favor raising the minimum wage on the federal level — not piecemeal at the local level. We favor any reasonable ef fort to encourage the creation of new businesses, which leads to jobs. The yawning gap in income has much to do with a lack of goodpaying jobs. The biggest of the entitlement programs must be set right for future deserving recipients. Medicare should be means tested so that wealthier recipients pay more of the bills. Social Security’s solvency could be ensured by either raising the age for drawing benefits or increasing the cap on the payroll tax. Democrats should be open to changes in entitlements to make them sustainable. Republicans should be open to increased taxes to shore them up. It was notable that House Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) didn’t go anywhere near entitlement reform during the recent budget agreement. That small-bore deal was an accomplishment after months of wrangling, but it also was a reminder of just how far the nation needs to go. Finally, we believe something else is required of every American: a sense of responsibility for those in need. Poverty is different from the other “wars” fought on social battlefields in this country. Unlike the “wars” against drugs and crime, it is relatively easy for the comfortable to remain unaware of want in their own communities, easier sometimes to show compassion for those thousands of miles away when the real work is five minutes from our own backyards. The anniversary of Johnson’s grand experiment is a good time for both parties to commit themselves to an honest debate over how best to preserve the American safety net and relieve income inequality. The answer is not shredding programs. The answer is fixing them. Reprinted From The Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel

Obama bullying nuns (part 2) Last week, I pointed out how PolitiFact crowned the promoter in chief’s sound bite for Obamacare the “Lie of the Year” for 2013: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” I also made a prediction that among his top 10 falsehood contenders for 2014 will be a reversal of what he emphatically stated back on Sept. 9, 2009: “Under our (health care reform) plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.” I showed how President Barack Obama already has repeatedly broken that prom-

DEAR DOCTOR K: My ophthalmologist has told me I have “dry” AMD. What is this? What can I expect going forward? DEAR READER: Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) affects the macula, the small part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision. The retina is the back part of the eye. As light enters your eye, the lens of your eye focuses the light on the retina. The retina then sends signals to the back of your brain. It’s there that your brain translates those signals into vision — the image of the things you are looking at. People with AMD often develop blurred or distorted vision. They cannot clearly see

objects directly in front of them. Eventually they may develop a blind spot in the middle of their field of vision. In the earliest stages of AMD there often are no war ning symptoms. (That’s one reason regular eye exams are important.) If the condition progresses to intermediate AMD, you may begin to notice blurring in the center of your

plans. As Fox News explained, “the policy is among the law’s most contentious provisions because it exempts churches that oppose contraception but requires religious-affiliated organizations, such as colleges or hospitals, to provide the coverage for their workers.” That is why, in 2012, a group of nuns — the Little Sisters of the Poor — appealed to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for help on behalf of their care facility for the elderly, because Obamacare was forcing them into

an ethical dilemma in which they must violate their faith or pay fines. So on New Year’s Eve, just a day before the provision in Obamacare was to be forced upon them, Sotomayor blocked the requirement upon the nuns in order to look into the matter further. In response to the nuns’ appeal, the U.S. Department of Justice immediately argued in legal papers filed a couple of weeks ago that the nuns don’t have a leg to stand on. The Obama administration

vision. At the advanced stage, the blurred area increases, making it hard to read or even recognize people. AMD rarely occurs before the age of 55. It then becomes more likely as you get older. One study found it in more than 10 percent of people older than 84. AMD occurs in two main forms: dry and wet. You mentioned you have the dry form — as do the vast majority of people with AMD. Some cases of dry AMD progress to the more serious wet form of the disease. Wet AMD can cause sudden vision loss. The less-common AMD is called “wet” because the blood vessels in or underneath the retina start to leak fluid, which

causes further damage to the retina. Currently, the only treatment for dry AMD is vitamin supplementation combined with a well-balanced diet that includes dark green leafy vegetables and several servings of fish per week. Research shows that high doses of antioxidant vitamins and minerals can slow (and sometimes prevent) progression from intermediate to advanced AMD. You should also monitor your condition by regularly testing yourself at home with an Amsler grid test. You focus your eyes on a central dot on a grid.

Supernatural author Lori Hines to visit library Roswell Daily Record

Lori Hines, author of three supernatural mysteries — “The Ancient One,” “Caves of the Watchers” and “Whispers Among the Ruins” — will be visiting the Roswell Public Library, 301 N. Pennsylvania, at 2 p.m. on Saturday to talk about her books. She weaves real archaeological information on petroglyphs into her stories that are set in New Mexico and Arizona. Lori is the host of “Under the Surface,” a radio program focused on Native American history and culture as well as the metaphysical. Her show features shamans, healers, historians, authors, archaeologists, as well as Native American artists and entertainers. She has also been a featured speaker at the 2013 UFO Festival in Roswell. This free presentation is hosted by the Friends of the Roswell Public Library. The Library’s Southwest collection of fiction and non-fiction books features the history, culture and geology of New Mexico and surrounding areas. Readers who want to know more about petroglyphs should check out Polly Schaafsma’s Rock Art in New Mexico; Janet Farnsworth’s Rock Art Along the Way or Gordon Roadside Guide to Indian Ruins & Rock Art of the Southwest.

The country needs more lawmakers who say yes, not no. MurrayRyan is a small deal in terms of budget priorities. But if it leads to more bipartisan cooperation, if it helps fix “our broken Congress,” it could turn out to be a large achievement indeed.

The comedic actor, best known for his current role as Ron Swanson on the TV series Parks and Recreation, has divided the book into three parts. In the first section, Offerman recollects being raised in the middle of a corn field on the family farm. Here, he learns the personal work ethics that have served him throughout his life. He grew up being both a young buck on the football team and doing theater, two activities that normally did not go together. The second part of the book covers going to theater and dance school and the realization of just how little he really knew about his chosen profession. After Offerman graduated, he worked for several years on the stage in Chicago with the Defiant Theater Company. He moved to California to pursue TV and movie acting. In spite of his struggles to make it in Hollywood, he always seems to take life as it comes and always has an optimistic outlook on everything. Offerman closes out his book with an ode of love to his wife, viewing his courtship of Megan Mullally of “Will and Grace” fame as his most important accomplishment in life.

tried to explain that the nuns don’t have to offer contraception — including abortion-inducing drugs — as long as they sign a government form that delegates the action to a third party. But for the nuns’ religious conviction, whether they of fer the contraception or sign a waiver for another to do so is simply sin. Yet without signing that “self-certification” form, the nuns would incur steep government fines. It is still unknown when Sotomayor will rule on these ludicrous government actions and violations of the nuns’ personal religious liberty and constitutional rights. But what is most illuminating about the rise of the nuns’ perilous and oppressive situation is the utter silence of Obama, who often has stood up for progressive minorities who were being crushed by bullying. As NBC News reported about the nuns’ crisis, “the White House’s reaction was muted.” The reason is Obama knows that his administration and health care law are intentionally shoving back against the nuns’ convictions and, indeed, the very power of the Roman Catholic Church — a huge advocate for the

Roswell Daily Record

Vatican comes under sharp criticism for sex abuse GENEVA (AP) — It resembled a courtroom cross-examination, except no question was off-limits, dodging the answer wasn’t an option and the proceedings were webcast live. After decades of accusations that its culture of secrecy contributed to priest sex abuse, the Vatican was forced for the first time Thursday to defend its record in public and at length. In a stuffy U.N. conference room before an obscure human rights committee, the Holy See was interrogated for eight hours about the scale of abuse and what it was doing to prevent it. The Vatican was compelled to appear before the committee as a signatory to the U.N. Convention for the Rights of the Child, which requires governments to take all adequate measures to protect children from harm and

ensure their interests are placed above all else. The Holy See was one of the first states to ratify the treaty in 1990, eager to contribute the church’s experience in caring for children in Catholic hospitals, schools, orphanages and refugee centers. It submitted a first implementation report in 1994, but didn’t provide progress assessments for nearly two decades, until 2012. B y t h e n, t h e c l e ri ca l sex abuse scandal had ex p l od ed ar o un d t h e wo r l d. T h ou s an d s o f priests were accused of r a p i n g a nd m o l e st in g t h o u sa n d s o f c hi l d r e n over decades, while their bishops moved them from parish to parish rather t h a n r e p or t t h em t o police. Critics allege the Holy See, the central government of the 1.2-billion strong Catholic Church, contributed to the prob-

le m by en c ou rag in g a culture of secrecy to protect the church’s reputation at the expense of victims. Thursday’s exchanges were sharp at times. “How can we address t h is wh ol e s yst em at i c policy of silencing of victims?” asked committee m e mber B en yam M ez mur, an Ethiopian acade mic . “ T he r e ar e t w o principles that I see are being under mined in a n u m b er of i ns tan ces, namely transparency and accountability.” Monsignor Charles Scicluna, the Vatican’s former sex crimes prosecutor, replied: “I am with you when you say that all of these nice words will not mean anything ... if there is not more transparency and accountability on the local level.” The Vatican insisted it had little jurisdiction to sa nct io n pe dop h ile

priests. “Priests are not functionaries of the Vatican,” S ilvan o A r ch b ish op T o mas i, t h e Vat i can ’ s U.N . a mba ssado r i n Geneva, told the committee. “Priests are citizens of their own states, and they fall under the jurisdi ct i on of t h e ir o wn country.” Victims groups called the defense hollow, given h o w Vat i can o f f ici al s in st r uc ted bi sh ops f or decades to not turn abusive priests in to police, but to keep the cases inhouse and confidential. “ Wh en t h e y say t h at these crimes should be prosecuted by states, it seems so disingenuous be cau se we kn o w t h at the chur ch of ficials at the state level obstruct those efforts to bring just i ce, ” sa id B ar bar a Blaine, president of the main U.S. victims group, SNAP.

Banks robbed, cars taken in S Sudan JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — The U.N.’s top aid official in South Sudan watched helplessly as ar med men in unifor m stole a car from an aid group. Thugs took $50,000 of goods from Mercy Corps. Tons of food have been stolen, and $500,000 taken from a bank. With renewed warfare reverberating throughout the world’s newest country, wholesale looting of vehicles, equipment and supplies belonging to aid groups is crippling humanitarians’ abilities to help. There is much work to do: Even before the fighting broke out last month, the people of South Sudan, one of the world’s poorest countries, were suffering from dismal health care and little edu-

cation. Now it’s much worse and they need even more help: Thousands of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced by a month of fighting in South Sudan between factions of the military as well as ethnic militias. Armed men on Thursday looted the Doctors Without Borders office in the city of Malakal, said Louisa Markering, the group’s emergency coordinator. Computers and phones were taken. “It’s getting more and more difficult,” said Markering, who noted that this was the second mass theft against the group since the conflict broke out. “If they steal our assets it’s going to be more difficult to do our work. ... It

makes our life difficult, if not impossible, if our security cannot be guaranteed.” The thefts have been particularly widespread in Bentiu, the capital of the oil-rich Unity State, which was in rebel hands for much of the last month before government troops retook the city. Toby Lanzer, the U.N.’s top humanitarian official in the country, watched men in uniform steal a car from an unnamed international aid group last week. “Our efforts to stop it did not succeed,” Lanzer wrote on Twitter, where he noted that it wasn’t worth risking lives to save a car. “Looting of aid agencies’ property in (hash)Bentiu will result in less aid reaching civilians who need the most help.”

Mercy Corps plans to return to Bentiu on Monday. The group had been delivering water and sanitation to refugees at the U.N. camp there. Then it lost $50,000 in of fice equipment and a motorbike.

“Now our assets are gone and it af fects our work in the region,” said country director Mathieu Rouquett. Doctors Without Borders’ compound in Bentiu was also hit, with virtually everything stolen, said Ines Hake, the group’s medical coordinator in Juba.

Hake urged all sides to respect the integrity of medical facilities and allow all ethnic groups to seek medical care.

Anti-gay laws hold sway in several regions

While gay-rights activists celebrate gains in much of the world, their setbacks have been equally far-flung, and often sweeping in scope. In Russia, a new law against “gay propaganda” has left gays and lesbians unsure of what public actions they can take without risking arrest. In India, gay-rights supporters were stunned by a recent high court ruling re-criminalizing gay sex. A newly signed law in Nigeria sets 10-year prison terms for joining or promoting any gay organization, while a pending bill in Uganda would impose life sentences for some types of gay sex. In such countries, repression of gays is depicted by political leaders as a defense of traditional values. The measures often have broad support from religious leaders and the public, limiting the impact of criticism from outsiders. The upshot: A world likely to be bitterly divided over gay rights for years to come. Globally, the contrasts are striking. Sixteen countries have legalized samesex marriage nationwide, including Canada, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and New Zealand as well as 10 European nations, and gay marriage is legal in parts of the United States and Mexico. Yet at least 76 countries retain laws criminalizing gay sex, including five where it’s

punishable by death. According to human rights groups, more than two-thirds of African countries outlaw consensual same-sex acts, and discrimination and violence against gays, lesbians and transgender people is commonplace. While many of the laws date to the colonial era, opposition to homosexuality has gained increasing traction as a political tactic over the past two decades. In 1995, President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe — who’s still in office — denounced gays and lesbians as “worse than pigs and dogs.” He has since been joined by political and religious leaders continentwide calling for punishments ranging from arrest to decapitation. Africans promoting antigay legislation have expressed alarm about gains made by sexual minorities in the United States and Europe. They say laws such as the one newly signed in Nigeria can serve as a bulwark against Western pressure to enshrine gay rights. In Liberia, for example, a religious group called the New Citizen Movement has spent the past year collecting signatures urging President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to sign a law banning samesex marriage — even though, as in Nigeria, there has been no local movement to legalize it.

ten euros cash. Participants say a lot of that cash also goes to beer. To understand how this all came to be, it helps to know the background. For years, a group of around 50 rowdy, aging alcoholics had plagued a park in east Amsterdam, annoying other park-goers with noise, litter and occasional harassment. The city had tried a number of hard-handed solutions, including adding police patrols, and temporarily banning alcohol in the park outright — including for family barbecues and picnics. Elatik says the city was spending 1 million euros ($1.3 million) a year on various prevention, treatment and policing programs to deal with the problem, and nobody was satisfied. Meanwhile, the small

cessors had been experimenting with ways to get help for alcoholics and drug addicts in the area. Floor van Bakkum of the Jellinek clinic, one of the city’s best-known addiction treatment clinics, said her organization has a very different approach to treating alcoholism. She has a few reservations about the Rainbow program, but approves of it in general. She said a “harm reduction approach” makes sense only when there is no real hope of recovery for an alcoholic. “The Rainbow group tries to make it as easy as possible (for alcoholics) to live their lives and that they make as little as possible nuisances to the environment they are living in,” she said. “I think it is good that they are doing this.”

out of a small clubhouse in east Amsterdam could almost be construction workers at the end of a hard day, taking off their orange reflective vests and cracking jokes as they suck down a few Heinekens, waiting for their paychecks. But it’s only noon, the men are alcoholics and the beers themselves are the paycheck. In a pilot project that has drawn attention in the Netherlands and around the world, the city has teamed up with a charity organization in hopes of improving the neighborhood and possibly improving life for the alcoholics. Not by trying to get them to stop drinking, but instead by offering to fund their habit outright. Participants are given beer in exchange for light

sticking to their schedule. “For a lot of politicians it was really dif ficult to accept, ‘So you are giving alcohol?”’ Amsterdam East district mayor Fatima Elatik said. “No, I am giving people a sense of perspective, even a sense of belonging. A sense of feeling that they are OK and that we need them and that we validate them and we don’t ostracize our people, because these are people that live in our district.” In practice, the men — two groups of 10 — must show up at 9 a.m., three days a week. They start off with two beers, work a morning shift, eat lunch, get two more beers, and then do an afternoon shift before closing out with their last beer. Sometimes there’s a bonus beer.

Letting Go The angels gathered near your side So very close to you For they knew the pain and suffering That you were going through I thought about so many things As I held tightly to your hand Oh, how I wished that you were strong And happy once again But your eyes were looking homeward To that place beyond the sky Where Jesus held His outstretched arms It was time to say goodbye I struggled with my selfish thoughts For I wanted you to stay So we could walk and talk again Like we did… just yesterday But Jesus knew the answer And I know you loved Him so So I gave to you life’s greatest gift The gift of letting go -Judith Bulock Morse

Steven Gregg “Stever” Johnson

Steven Gregg “Stever” Johnson, 64, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. Stever had degenerative disc disease. For the last seven months, he experienced a great deal with the long-standing chronic pain and subsequent surgeries. Stever was born on April 27, 1949, in Lubbock, Texas, to Auvie and Sara Johnson and was the eldest son. His nickname was given to him by his dad, with whom he shared many of the same loves, like good bird dogs, hunting, fishing, and being married to a good woman who could cook! Stever is survived by his wife, Rhonda, of the home; son, Jay Gregg Johnson (Jennifer), of Junction; daughter, Jodi Lee Murphy, of Garland, Texas; and Steele Houston Johnson, of Atlantic Beach, N.C. He is also survived by his mother, Sara “Saint Nanny,” Johnson, of Huntsville, Ala.; a brother, Jim Johnson (Barbara), of Denver, Colo.; and sister, Maxie (Ron) of Huntsville, Ala. He was known by his beautiful grandchildren as Pop. Jay’s children are Dilan, Kaitlin, Kylee and Danielle. Jodi’s girls are Sara and Maci. Stever grew up in Abernathy, Texas, and then moved to the hill country

(Junction), when he was in high school. He was very active in 4H, raising and showing champion pigs. He played football in high school the only way he knew how, with all heart and gave everything he had at every game. As a young man, he joined his dad in the real estate business and became a broker. He worked in real estate for many years. He also worked as a rural carrier associate with the U.S. Postal Service in Texas and transferred in that position to Roswell, in 1995, when he and Rhonda relocated to raise their youngest son, Steele. Stever was a charter member of Grace Community Church who prayed for anyone and everyone, but especially for those he loved. He graduated from Word of Faith Bible College in the ’80s in Dallas, Texas, where he learned to “chew” on the Word of God. With the many years he suffered, his relationship with Christ and the knowledge of His Word, helped him press on during his disability for the last 15 years, when it became too much for him to bear in his own physical strength. A memorial service is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, at 2 p.m. at Grace Community Church, 935 W. Mescalero, in Roswell. Family will greet friends from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, at LaGrone Funeral Chapel. Condolences maybe made online at lagronefuneralchapels.com. Arrangements are under the professional care of LaGrone Funeral Chapel.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You will wake up feeling tired, which could be the result of an active dream life. You might decide to clear up an issue involving a higher-up.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Your fiery energy could point to a solution that you might not have considered. Be aware of what you want from a situation. Your requests and demands might seem clear to you, but others will be getting mixed messages. Be clear. Tonight: Where your friends are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might not be aware of how much admiration others have for you; people observe your behavior a lot more than you realize. You could be subject to more judgment as a result. Still, you enjoy taking a leadership role. Tonight: Others take their cues from you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)  You might be taken aback by someone’s far-out ideas. Once you get past how different they are, you will be able to evaluate whether you want to be a part of this undertaking. This endeavor could be a wild escapade. Tonight:

Touch base with a friend at a distance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  You could be taken aback by a partner’s revelation. You also might wonder what would be appropriate, past your knee-jerk reaction. Your intensity marks your interactions and draws others toward you. Why not just jump in? Tonight: Togetherness works. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  You have an original way of expressing yourself. Others respond strongly to you. You might not be revealing your true feelings to a very important person in your life. Whatever your reason is, think again. Tonight: A social butterfly. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)  Be realistic about what you need to get done. If you are ahead of schedule, you might decide to move up your evening plans by an hour or so.

KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

DEXTER — Dexter coach James Voight stressed to his players the importantance of getting off to a good start in the John Reid Invitational. And the Demons took the message to heart. They roared past Lake Arthur in the first round of the 47th annual tournament 90-21 on Thursday at Lewis Gym. “It was a big thing to come out (strong to start the tournament),” Voight said after the win, which pushed his team’s record to 14-2 on the year. “That’s something that we talked about. It didn’t matter who you were playing. “We wanted to come out and be dominant tonight.” And they were exactly that. They made 32 of 64 (50.0 percent) from the field, including 15 of 29 from beyond the arc, on the offensive end. Defensively, they held Lake Arthur to 26.7-percent shooting and forced 34 Panther turnovers. “We shared the ball well and hit some 3s that weren’t going last week,” Voight said. “We really shot pretty well tonight and our pressure defense caused turnovers and we were able to get out and run. We ran lanes good. See DEMONS, Page B4

LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

DEXTER — The final score of a game isn’t always indicative of how close a game was. A basketball team can win by 15, but if they went on a 10-0 run in the final 30 seconds thanks to free throws, it was a much closer contest than the stat sheet would reveal. On the other end of the spectrum, a 13-point victory wouldn’t necessarily indicate a blowout and the game between Hagerman and Jal on Thursday was proof of that.

MLB approves expanded replay starting this season

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) — Ever since the game was invented, before television or even radio existed, baseball counted on the eyes and ears of umpires on the field. Starting this season, many key decisions will be made in a studio far away. Major League Baseball vaulted into the 21st century of technology on Thursday, approving a huge expansion of instant replay in hopes of eliminating blown calls that riled up players, managers and fans. “I think it’s great,” San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s about getting it right.” Acknowledging the human element had been overtaken in an era when everyone except the umps could see several views over and over in slow-motion, owners and players and umpires OKed the new system. Now each manager will be allowed to challenge at least one call per game. If he’s right, he gets another challenge. After the seventh inning, a crew chief can request a review on his own if the manager has used his challenges. “I tell you the fans will love it,” baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said after owners met and voted their

Broncos fall to South Plains 77-72

Playing 18-1 South Plains on Thursday night, the Broncos gave the second-ranked Texans all they could handle in a 77-72 South Plains win. Early on, the Broncos (10-7, 0-5 Western Junior College Athletic Conference) built a 16-8 lead, but, by the end of the first half, the eight-point lead had morphed into an eight-point deficit. In the second half, South Plains opened up a 68-54 lead, but NMMI responded with a 14-2 run that closed the gap to 70-68. The Broncos wouldn’t get any closer, however, as the Texans closed the game on a 7-4 run. Biron Joseph led NMMI with 20 points, while Antonio Manns (18) and Marcus Roper (14) also scored in double figures for the Broncos. South Plains’ Billydee Williams led all scorers

72-59 win over the Panthers. Hagerman (11-1) took control in the first half thanks to its smothering defense and an unselfish offense. Off the opening tip, Bryan Barela ran down for a quick layup that gave Hagerman a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Three possessions later, Isaiah Bejarano buried a jumper to make it 4-1 and, after a defensive stop, the sophomore guard made a bunny to push the lead to five. Following a Jal basket, Jessie Rodriguez drained a triple to make it 9-3 and, by the end of the first, the Bobcats held a 25-11 lead that would only grow. Starting with a Bejarano jumper that made it 27-13 with 6:48 left in the second, Hagerman went on a 26-8 run to end the half. During the run, Hagerman

Sharapova advances after another Aussie scorcher

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Maria Sharapova was already soaking in ice by the time the extreme weather warning arrived. It seemed bafflingly late to the four-time major winner, who felt fried after playing for 3 1/2 hours in searing heat to reach the third round of the Australian Open. She didn’t know it when she was out on Rod Laver Arena tangling with Karin Knapp on Thursday, but tournament

organizers had finally conceded it was unsafe to keep players on court on the third consecutive day of what is shaping as a oncein-a-century heat wave. Matches were suspended for four hours as temperatures topped 43 Celsius (109 Fahrenheit) before subsiding, but that didn’t apply to Sharapova and Knapp because they were already into the third set and the Extreme Heat Policy only kicks in at the end

Chicago State powers past New Mexico State 86-81

CHICAGO (AP) — Clarke Rosenberg scored 20 points and Quinton Pippen added 19 with eight rebounds as Chicago State defeated New Mexico State 86-81 Thursday night. The Cougars (8-9, 3-0 WAC) shot 54.9 percent from the field and were 8 of 12 from beyond the arc. Matt Ross scored 17 points, Nate Duhon contributed 12 and Corey Gray had 10 for Chicago State. New Mexico State (14-6, 3-1) outrebounded Chicago State 36-26 and hit 10 3pointers, but also had 19 turnovers. Daniel Mullings paced the Aggies with 26 points, Kevin Aronis chipped in 15 and Tshilidzi Nephawe had 12 points with 12 boards. With less than two minutes remaining, Duhon hit two free throws and Pippen nailed a 3-pointer to give Chicago State a fourpoint lead. The Aggies pulled within one after an Aronis 3-pointer with 10 seconds left, but DK Eldridge turned it over following two Duhon free throws.

coach Richard Pitino his first signature win. They did it by backing down the Buckeyes and owning the area around the basket, posting a 38-20 advantage in points in the paint and a 39-24 rebounding edge. LaQuinton Ross scored 22 points for the Buckeyes (15-3, 2-3), who are on a threegame losing streak for the first time in almost four years. The other four Ohio State starters combined for only 19 points, and the conference’s second-worst free throw shooting team went 11 for 18 from the foul line. Minnesota beat Ohio State for the first time in seven meetings, a feat last accomplished here in 2010. Against a Gophers team that leads the Big Ten in steals, the Buckeyes took better care of the ball after totaling 38 turnovers over the previous two games, but their struggles getting shots to go down was too much to overcome. They lost last week at Michigan State and then at home to Iowa, hardly blemishes on their record, but they’re going to have to snap out of this slide soon to keep up in the top-heavy Big Ten. The Buckeyes fell to 254 following losses over the last five seasons. The last time they dropped three in a row was February 2009, at Wisconsin, at Northwestern and against Illinois. Eliason wasn’t the only one working inside for Minnesota. His backup, Mo Walker, converted consecutive spin moves to draw fouls both times, good for a fivepoint spurt. He even had a steal to set up a fast break a few minutes later. Oto Osenieks added eight points, all near the basket. Then the Gophers went to their guards to break open the game down the stretch. Andre Hollins swished a corner 3-pointer inside the 3-minute mark to make it 55-46, and Austin Hollins followed with a steal and a layup to push the lead to double digits. The Gophers are in a relentless fourgame stretch that’s remarkable even for this deep, difficult league. After losing in overtime at fifth-ranked Michigan State last weekend, here came the grumpy Buckeyes on a rare losing streak. Minnesota then plays at No. 14 Iowa on Sunday and hosts Wisconsin, ranked third in the Associated Press poll this week, next Wednesday.

of sets in progress. Sharapova thinks it absurd that a vague formula for measuring ambient temperature, wind and humidity leaves the tournament referee as the sole arbiter of extreme heat — without input from the players. “We have never received any emails or, you know, warnings about the weather or what to do,” she told a news conference an hour or so after her 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 win over Knapp. Then she recalled: “Actually, I did receive one, I think, while I was in the ice bath a few minutes ago — I was like, ‘That’s a little too late.”’ Not long after tour nament director Craig Tiley appeared outdoors in a TV interview, dressed in jacket and tie, to explain how the decisions are reached, Sharapova said organizers should be telling the tour trainers, medical staff, officials and players so that everyone is in the loop. The only matches that continued in the afternoon were on the two main show courts under closed roofs, which in hindsight was a good thing when the lightning and rain arrived later in the evening to again delay matches on outside courts.

Zach Johnson on target at Humana Challenge Roswell Daily Record

LA QUINTA, Calif. (AP) — Zach Johnson asked his short-iron approach on the par-4 18th to “Do something right, baby.” It did. With just a hint of a draw, Johnson’s shot landed to the right of the right-side pin and spun to 2 feet to set up a birdie Thursday that left him two strokes behind first-round leader Patrick Reed in the Humana Challenge. Thriving on great driving, even better wedge play and putting, Johnson has three worldwide wins in his last seven starts. He began the run in the BMW Championship in September, and beat Tiger Woods in a playoff in December in the World Challenge after holing a wedge for par on the final hole of regulation. Johnson followed that with a victory two weeks ago in Kapalua. “I don’t think I’m the best,” Johnson said when asked if he’s the best wedge player. He pointed to Ryder Cup teammate Steve Stricker. “He’s the first one that comes to my mind,” Johnson said. “Phenomenal wedge player. ... But my wedges are clean. ... I’ve worked on it a lot. I’ve worked on it in a number of different ways, but the main way is really just trying to dial in yardages and trajectories.” Johnson finished with a 7-under 65, hitting all 14 fairways at La Quinta Country Club — the most-demanding driving layout in the three-course event. He hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation and had 27 putts in his

bogey-free round. “The greens over there are, I don’t even know how to explain them, it’s like carpet,” Johnson said. “I mean, they’re just so good. I don’t know what they do over there, but they look artificial. They’re like this every year, but they’re as good as I’ve ever seen.” Johnson has 11 PGA Tour victories. Dating to his rookie season in 2004, only Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have more. “It means that I’m doing something right,” said Johnson, the top-ranked player in the field at No. 6. Reed had a 9-under 63 in perfect scoring and weather conditions. He ran off five straight birdies in the middle of his bogeyfree round on PGA West’s Arnold Palmer Private Course and tied his career low. “The course is in perfect shape,” said Reed, the Wyndham Championship winner in August. “The rough isn’t very high, the fairways are perfect and the greens are rolling very true.” Reed started on the back nine and birdied Nos. 16-18 and 1-2 to get to 7-under. He added birdies on Nos. 6 and 7. “I started out a little struggling with the driver, had some lefts in it, but luckily I missed it in the right spots,” Reed said. “I was really confident with my irons, kept hitting greens and all of a sudden, 10-, 12-, 15-, 20-foot putts started going in.”

Boldin-Crabtree wideout tandem tough on defenses

San Francisco’s Anquan Boldin (81) and Michael Crabtree take part in a practice, Wednesday.

Brady back at practice after illness FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — No sniffles, no coughs, no watery eyes. Patriots fans can breathe easy now that Tom Brady is back at practice “Doing very well, thank you,” the quarterback who will lead New England into the AFC championship game said Thursday. Brady was removed from the injury report one day after being a no-show at practice because of illness. And teammates weren’t concerned that the lost time would affect him Sunday against the Denver Broncos. “The most important thing is that he’s healthy and that he’s ready to go,” running back Shane Vereen said. “He’s been doing this for a long time, so he’s the last one that I’m really worried about.” The 14-year veteran has been nursing a cold for a while. He showed signs of it four days before the Patriots beat the Indianapolis Colts 43-22 in an AFC divisional-round game last Saturday night. “A little bit,” he said then, “but I’ll live.” Special teams captain Matthew Slater, whose locker is next to Brady’s, smiled when asked Thursday if he was worried that Brady might be contagious. “I didn’t put up a barrier. I think he’s feeling better,” Slater said. “We’ve got to keep everybody healthy. It’s the cold and flu season.” Brady wouldn’t say what his illness was — “It was nothing. I feel great. Nothing at all.” — and didn’t think his one-day absence would set him back. “We’ve been at it for a while now,” he said. “I’ve played a lot of football over the whole season.” Lately, that’s involved handing the ball off more than throwing it. In the last three games, all wins, the Patriots (13-4) have averaged 41 rushes for 214 yards and 25 passes for 153 yards. For the first time in three seasons, Brady has thrown for fewer than 200 yards in three consecutive games. But that’s not how the three-time Super Bowl champion measures success. “I think it’s just about winning,” Brady said. “If we need to throw for 500 yards, hopefully we can do that. If we need to throw for 50 yards, I’ll throw for 50 yards. As long as we win and whatever it takes for us to score more points than the other team, that’s what we

have to do.” They’ll probably have to score a lot. The Broncos (14-3) set an NFL record this season with 606 points. That’s 37.9 per game. The Patriots, dealing all season with injuries to key players and a developing passing game, averaged 27.8. But they did beat the Broncos in the 11th game, 34-31 in overtime, after trailing 24-0 at halftime. The Patriots turned the ball over on their first three possessions in that game but won on Stephen Gostkowski’s field goal after a punt hit Denver’s Tony Carter and New England recovered. “However the game ebbs and flows, I think we have to be prepared to just play for 60 minutes,” Brady said. “You’re not going to play 30 minutes against this team and then think you have it all figured out. They’re going to change, we’re going to change.” And if he’s not feeling well? It shouldn’t make a difference. The day before the AFC championship game in January 2005, Brady had a sore throat and a fever of 103. Then he had the highest passer rating (130.5) in his eight playoff games to that point, all victories. He completed 14 of 21 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-27 win at Pittsburgh, where the temperature was 11 degrees with a wind chill of minus-1. Two weeks after that win, the Patriots beat Philadelphia for their third Super Bowl championship in four years. “We had a lot of tough guys,” Willie McGinest, a linebacker on those Patriots, said Thursday, “guys like Tom and some of the other guys we had on those teams, we had to drag them off the field.” Brady expects to be there to the end on Sunday, expecting a high-scoring game against the Broncos. “We better be ready to score some points because that’s what they do best. They outscore you and they can score quickly,” he said. “They’ve been playing great since the opening day of the season. We’ve kind of had to find our way a little bit. But none of it really matters. It’s just all about this game.”

Zach Johnson watches his tee shot on third hole during the first round of the Humana Challenge, Thursday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree waited nearly eight months to finally step on the field together for game day. At last, in Week 13, everyone got to see the dynamic tandem in San Francisco’s upgraded receiving corps — and it didn’t take them long to discover an impressive rhythm for a passing game in serious need of a jolt. While the emotional Boldin helped lead the offense alongside Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore and Vernon Davis early on, Crabtree worked through months of rehab after surgery for a torn right Achilles tendon. “That was the vision going in, him on one side, me on the other, Vernon working the middle of the field,” Boldin said. “It’s tough on defenses when you have two guys outside capable of having big games, and then you have Vernon inside matched up with linebackers. So, it gives defenses fits.” Whether the Seahawks’ stellar secondary can be fooled by this talented trio during the NFC championship game Sunday at Seattle will play a key factor in which of the archrivals advances to the Super Bowl. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh wondered

whether Crabtree would be the same dominant player. Even offensive coordinator Greg Roman had his doubts it would happen this season given the severity of Crabtree’s injury. “You’ve always got to plan for the worstcase scenario,” Roman said Thursday. “Until I saw him pushing a sled about a month and a half ago out here, I realized it was reality.” Crabtree quickly returned to form as someone Harbaugh considers the best pass catcher he has seen. Crabtree might celebrate a clutch catch by pumping his arms, while Boldin tends to do so by barking at an opposing defender. “That’s just my personality. It’s always been the way that I played the game,” Boldin said. “I was always told if you don’t play the game all out, then you’re cheating yourself.” To see Crabtree back at full strength means so much for San Francisco’s swagger as the team carries an eight-game winning streak into CenturyLink Field. “You could just see at every juncture he was hitting right down the middle of the

Elway: Manning not ready to ride into retirement

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway doesn’t see Peyton Manning riding off into that orange Rocky Mountain sunset the way Elway did 15 years ago if the Denver Broncos quarterback caps his recordsetting season with a second Super Bowl ring. Elway’s body was breaking down, having been sacked 516 times — 244 more than Manning has been in about the same number of games. “I still think he’s young and he’s playing well,” Elway, now the Broncos’ executive vice president, said Thursday of his quarterback, who’s coming off his best statistical season just two years removed from neck problems that weakened his throwing arm. “That’s going to come down to Peyton. It’s going to come down to what he wants to do.” Manning has given no indication that he’s anywhere near calling it quits at age 37, although he has dropped phrases lately like “light at the end of the tunnel” when talking about his career. Elway takes that to mean Manning knows that whenever he does walk away, these are the days he’ll look back on. Manning is preparing to lead the Broncos (14-3) against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (134) Sunday in the AFC championship. Elway said he’ll meet with Manning after the season to talk about his future. But the four -time MVP who will likely have No. 5 soon certainly doesn’t seem to be wringing the last Sundays out of his bat-

tered body like Elway was doing back in 1998. After all, Manning has thrown for 97 touchdowns in his two seasons in Denver, including an NFL-record 55 this season. “When you leave this game, you want to leave it on your last leg and try not to leave anything on the table. ... I was just fortunate to be able to be on two great football teams and be able to win world championships when my ‘last leg’ broke,” said Elway, who retired after leading the Broncos to their second straight Super Bowl title on Jan. 31, 1999. “I missed four games my last year. So, could I have

gotten through another year? Sure, I could have,” Elway said. “But would it have been at the level I want? ... Was I enjoying the game as much as I had enjoyed it? No, because it took me so long to heal. It was kind of the beginning of the body breaking down. So the combination of both — and being able to run off into the sunset — made it easier for me.” Elway said running the Broncos’ front office has proven much different from running the team from the huddle. “It takes some getting used to,” he said. “I enjoy See BRONCOS, Page B4

made 11 field goals, six of which came via an assist, something that pleased coach Anthony Mestas. “It was great. I liked it,” he said. “Give and gos, passing behind the back. Everyone was playing unselfish basketball and I like to see that. Everyone was trying to get the open man.” Many of the helpers were off fast breaks that were started by the Bobcats’ swarming defense. in the second quarter, Jal had 21 possessions, 13 of which ended in a turnover. During the second half, Mestas rested Rodriguez, Jose Bejarano and others, which allowed his substitutes to get valuable playing time. “We got the lead up to 30 points and decided at halftime we would let everyone else play,” Mestas said regarding the benefit of resting some players. “We wanted to get some of those younger guys in because when we play Capitan and so forth, let’s say (Jose Bejarano) gets in foul trouble. Then those other guys have to step up. They have to box out the big kid and rebound the ball.” Isaiah Bejarano led Hagerman with 25 points, three steals and two rebounds, while Barela chipped in with 16 points and a pair of assists. Rodriguez added 13 points, four rebounds and four steals for the Bobcats.

Nor can obstruction and interference rulings — those are up to the umpires’ judgment, like the one at third base in Game 3 of the World Series last October that sent St. Louis over Boston. All reviews will be done by current MLB umpires at a replay center in MLB.com’s New York office. To create a large enough staff, MLB agreed to hire six new big league umpires and call up

At the same time, I think you would be crazy not to ask a quarterback with his experience questions. “And it was kind of the same way growing up. My dad was never my coach by any means.

plate collisions between runners and the catcher. The rule has not been written and talks on its content are ongoing between MLB representatives and the players union, he said. Even since William McLean became the first professional umpire when he worked a BostonPhiladelphia National League game on April 22, 1876, baseball has celebrated its old-fashioned traditions. Having umpires make the calls on the field was one of them.

Bowl champion Baltimore that sent a sixth-round draft pick to the Ravens. Boldin noticed a difference in how Seattle’s defense played the Niners in Week 2 without Crabtree to the way they did in a 19-17 49ers win Dec. 8 at Candlestick Park with him. “Every team plays you differently as opposed to not having Crab out there,” Boldin said. “He’s definitely a weapon that you have to account for.” Boldin realizes, with Crabtree playing a big part, how fortunate he is to be chasing a second championship in as many years after winning it all with the Ravens against the 49ers last February.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: When my husband died, he didn’t have a lot of possessions. He died without a will, so what little he had is now with me. My problem is my mother -in-law keeps asking that I return things she gave him. I wouldn’t mind if she has them, but she has been giving them to his children, who hated him and were rude and disrespectful. They neither called nor came to see him during his long illness. They didn’t even bother to come to

his funeral. I feel they want his things only because they think they might be of some value, not out of any respect or affection. My kids showed him more respect and love than his own did, and I’d rather they have his things. Should I be honest and tell my mother-in-law why I won’t give her any more of his possessions? I just don’t know what to do. OKLAHOMA WIDOW DEAR WIDOW: It’s sad that your stepchildren ignored their father during his illness and chose to skip his funeral. Be sure to point out that when you tell your former mother-in-law you have other plans for the items. She may not like hearing it, but once a gift is given, it belongs to the recipient. And because her son died without a will, the recipient is you, his widow. #####

COMICS

DEAR ABBY: I recently started a new job. One of the management individuals has taken a strong interest in me. He keeps doing favors for me that benefit me financially and I appreciate it. (I have never asked him to do this.) I have always been courteous and took his gestures as a sign of kindness. But now he has started complimenting me and talking about things that go way beyond conversation. It’s making me uncomfortable. We have gone out on two friendly lunches before, and he is a genuine, kind, educated, wonderful man. He would be a great catch, but the problem is he is extremely overweight. I am emotionally attracted to him, but physically repelled. I can’t wait years for him to lose the weight, but he is taking my kindness as a possible show of interest. Have you any advice that could help end his attraction, but continue the busi-

ness advice he provides for me? IN A SPOT IN TAMPA

Family Circus

DEAR IN A SPOT: When the man compliments you about anything that isn’t work-connected, tell him that when he does it, it makes you uncomfortable. And when he raises topics that aren’t business-related, steer the conversation right back where it belongs. He may be a kind, genuine, educated, wonderful person, but if he persists, it could be considered harassment. #####

KING FEATURES SYNDICATE Dear Heloise: I want to recommend that readers always have a drink with them before BOARDING A PLANE. Usually the attendants will offer you a beverage, but on this last flight, we had turbulence on and off the whole time, and everybody had to remain in the seats, including the attendants. It was not a short flight, either. Once you go through security, you can purchase a drink and bring it on the flight with you, which now will be a must for me when flying. G.R. in Houston

Dear Heloise: Can you tell me the best way to clean piano keys? Mine are looking a little dirty, and I want to keep them in good shape. Louise in Connecticut

The way to clean piano keys dif fers depending on what kind of material the keys are made out of. If you have ivory keys (which a lot of older pianos have), they are fragile and need to be cleaned gently. Mix a cup of warm water with just a drop of gentle soap. Dampen a microfiber cloth with the mixture and wipe the keys, then wipe with a damp cloth and dry. Only do a few keys at a time, and don’t let any moisture drip down between the keys. If the keys are plastic, you can use a mixture of vinegar and warm water. Again, dampen the cloth in the mixture and wipe the keys clean. Then wipe dry ASAP. Never use so much liquid that it drips between the keys. Vinegar is a wonderful household product to have on hand because it has so many different uses. I have shared my favorites in my vinegar pamphlet. To order, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (66 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Vinegar, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. After a long day of chores, pat some applecider vinegar on your hands to give them a boost. It’s also a cheap and safe window cleaner. Why waste money? Heloise #####

Dear Heloise: My husband has a rotating work schedule and is sometimes on the night shift. When this happens, it is just my son and me for dinner. One fun thing I do is have a picnic on the living-room floor. We lay out a blanket and eat our meal while watching a movie. He loves our “special” dinners, and I love our mother -son time.
