JERUSALEM (AP) — After a lackluster three-month campaign, few doubt that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on his way to re-election. But the makeup of Netanyahu’s next government remains a mystery. If re-elected on Tuesday, Netanyahu will face a critical decision that will define his term. - PAGE B10

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Stan Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals star with the corkscrew stance and too many batting records to fit on his Hall of Fame plaque, died Saturday. He was 92. Stan the Man was so revered in St. Louis that he has two statues outside Busch Stadium — one just wouldn’t do him justice. He was one of baseball’s greatest hitters, shining in the mold of Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio even without the bright lights of the big city. - PAGE B1

People of all ages had a chance to kick back and go with the flow Saturday in a collective sound jam at Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art. Boston composer and saxophonist Ken Field guided The Music of Sound event, which was the first program in the 2013 Xcellent Music at AMoCA series. The result of Saturday’s collaboration ran the musical gamut, featuring the sounds of people’s voices, hands and feet, traditional instruments like saxophones, guitars and violins and unorthodox tools like kazoos, combs, wax paper, bottles and cans. Field, who has led about 10 sound jams, said the main goal is simply to “make interesting sounds happen.” He said that for musicians and non-musicians alike, a sound jam is a way to get people excited about their abilities to change their environment with sound, to “jump right in and make some music.” “I believe in spontaneity. In my music, in my life,” Field said. “I think it’s a good skill to be able to

Gun advocates rally at Capitol Proposal would SANTA FE (AP) — Gun rights advocates rallied Saturday at the New Mexico Capitol as part of a national series of events aimed at protesting new gun control proposals. The “Guns Across America” rally in Santa Fe drew hundreds of gun owners and their supporters from around the state, holding signs in opposition to President Barack Obama’s sweeping package of federal gun control proposals. The rally was part of a loosely organized campaign via social media, encouragSee RALLY, Page A3

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The New Mexico Game and Fish Department wants to get tough on poachers who take the heads and antlers of elk, deer and other trophy animals and leave the meat behind to rot.

The department is supporting legislation introduced in the House that would make such poaching crimes a

fourth-degree felony in New Mexico. Currently, these crimes are classified as misdemeanors. Tougher penalties are needed as a deterrent to stop the waste of the state’s wildlife, said Col. Robert Griego, head of the department’s field operations division. “It’s an increasing problem,” Griego told

On 2nd term eve, Obama cites commitment to service

WASHINGTON (AP) — On the brink of a second term, President Barack Obama invoked Martin Luther King Jr.’s commitment to service Saturday as inaugurationgoers flocked to the capital city for a distinctly American celebration including an oath-taking as old as the republic, a splashy parade and partying enough to last four years. “I think we’re on the cusp of some really great things,” Vice President Joe Biden predicted for a country still recovering from a deep recession. Freshly built inaugural stands at the Capitol gleamed white in the sun,

and hundreds of chairs for special guests were set out on the lawn that spills down toward the National Mall as the president and vice president began their inauguration weekend. Officials estimated that as many as 800,000 people will attend Monday’s public ceremonies. That’s more than live in the city, if far fewer than the 1.8 million who were at Obama’s first inauguration in 2009. The president made only a glancing reference to race as he spoke at an elementary school not far from the White House after he and first lady Michelle Obama stained a bookcase as part

of a national service event organized by the inaugural committee. “We think about not so much the inauguration, but we think about this is Dr. King’s birthday we’re going to be celebrating this weekend,” the president said. “He said everybody wants to be first, everybody wants to be a drum major. But if you’re going to be a drum major, be a drum major for service, be a drum major for justice, be a drum major for looking out for other people,” Obama said of the civil rights leader See SERVICE, Page A3

Algeria: 32 militants, 23 hostages dead

ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — In a bloody finale, Algerian special forces stormed a natural gas complex in the Sahara desert on Saturday to end a standof f with Islamist extremists that left at least 23 hostages dead and killed all 32 militants involved, the Algerian government said.



With few details emerging from the remote site in easter n Algeria, it was unclear whether anyone was rescued in the final operation, but the number of hostages killed on Saturday — seven — was how many the militants had said that morning they still had. The gover nment

described the toll as provisional and some foreigners remained unaccounted for. The siege at Ain Amenas transfixed the world after radical Islamists linked to al-Qaida stormed the complex, which contained hundreds of plant workers from all over the world, then held them hostage surrounded by the Algerian military and its attack helicopters for four tense days that were punctuated with gun battles and dramatic tales of escape. Algeria’s response to the crisis was typical of its history in confronting terrorists, favoring military action over negotiation,

which caused an international outcry from countries worried about their citizens. Algerian military forces twice assaulted the two areas where the hostages were being held with minimal apparent mediation — first on Thursday, then on Saturday. Immediately after the assault, French President Francois Hollande gave his backing to Algeria’s tough tactics, saying they were “the most adapted response to the crisis.” President Barack Obama said in a statement Saturday that the U.S. stood See ALGERIA, Page A2

Drug busts yield ‘ancient remnants’ City to go Up in Smoke, Friday Law enforcement officers discovered a treasure trove of artifacts — described as cultural items and “ancient remnants” — during a drug bust, Friday. RPD spokeswoman Sabrina Morales said the items included some historic documents and old Bibles, some dating back to the 1800s. The historical find resulted when agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Chaves County Metro Narcotics Task Force executed two federal search warrants in the 1200 block of West 11th Street and on Del Norte Drive. Officials found multiple firearms and methamphetamine. Five individuals were arrested: Ralph Pichardo, 31; Rosendo Pichardo, 33; Joe Rodriguez. 34; Mechlia Salazar, 29; and Adan Horton, 58. The Pichardo brothers and Horton will be prosecuted on Federal charges. Rodriguez and Mechlia are facing felony charges. A mystery remains. The Roswell Police Department is actively searching for the owner of the historical items. The owner is asked to contact the RPD at 6246770.

ready to provide whatever assistance was needed in the wake of the attack. In the final assault, the remaining band of militants killed the hostages before 11 of them were in turn cut down by the special forces, Algeria’s state news agency said. The military launched its Saturday assault to prevent a fire started by the extremists from engulfing the complex and blowing it up, the report added. A total of 685 Algerian and 107 foreigner workers were freed over the course of the four -day standoff, the ministry statement

said, adding that the group of militants that attacked the remote Saharan natural gas complex consisted of 32 men of various nationalities, including three Algerians and explosives experts.

The militants, who came from a Mali-based al-Qaida splinter group run by an Algerian, attacked the plant Wednesday mor ning. Armed with heavy machine guns and rocket launchers in four -wheel drive vehicles, they fell on a pair of buses taking foreign workers to the airport. The buses’ military escort drove off the attackers in a blaze of gunfire that sent bullets zinging over the heads of crouching workers. A

Briton and an Algerian — probably a security guard — were killed. The militants then turned to the vast gas complex, divided between the workers’ living quarters and the refinery itself, and seized hostages, the Algerian government said.

Roswell is set to go Up in Smoke this Friday when Tommy Chong hits town for a comedy act at the Civic Center. Chong, best known for his work in the Grammy Award-winning comedy duo Cheech & Chong, will follow opening acts from his wife Shelby and comedians Daniel Van Nice and Ponchi Herrera. Chong’s Up in Smoke tour stop will mark the second time the 74-year-old comedian and marijuana advocate has performed in Roswell since 2005. Chong said that while his show features plenty of humor, the material “goes a little deeper than just laughs.” “I try to keep everything fresh and new and different, but yet still talk about what people know me for, you know?” Chong said. “... It’s a history of hippies in America, I guess. We try to entertain by showing a very enlightened view of the world.” Chong, who has been a marijuana advocate since the early 1960s, served nine months in a California prison in 2003 and 2004 for conspiring to sell drug paraphernalia. He said the experience changed him for the better, leading to a better understanding of the war on drugs in America. “Well, prison changes everybody,” he said. “It opened my eyes. ... I’m more tolerant, and I’m aware of what’s going on in the world now. Before I was never aware, I just lived my life, sort of in a bubble.” “So we look at the marijuana world. And what’s happened (is), it’s gone mainstream,” he said. “It’s legal in Washington state and Colorado, and it’s in 19 states where they have medical marijuana. So my show, anyway, centers quite a bit around that world, in a humorous way.” “We try to get people to lighten up,” he said. “I mean, that’s really been my mission in life and in performing. That’s one of the reasons I’m still on the stage. We don’t only make people laugh but we educate. And I think that’s very important for this culture to be educated, because if you’re educated, then you’re Niger, hundreds of miles to the south. On Thursday, Algerian helicopters kicked off the military’s first assault on the complex by opening fire on a convoy carrying both kidnappers and their hostages to stop them from escaping, resulting in many deaths, according to witnesses. While the Algerian government has only admitted to 23 hostages dead so far, the militants claimed through the Mauritanian news website ANI that the

not fearful. There’s nothing to be afraid of if you know what’s going on, and that’s basically what I try to do.” Chong said when it comes to hot button issues like marijuana legalization, laughter helps put things in perspective. “The truth is that we’re really dealing with a substance that helps people,” he said. “It doesn’t hurt people; it literally helps people: it helps them sleep, it helps them relax, it helps them relieve stress, it helps people with Alzheimer’s and it helps people with M.S. ... I’ve never heard of a marijuana addict going berserk, except maybe in a candy store — eating.” Chong said even though he always hopes to educate an audience, his Up in Smoke act should not be confused with a political event. “That’s not the humorist’s job, really. Our job is to show you things, and show you the humor in situations.” He said his humor manages to “skate between the poles,” and pointed out that his fans range from Rush Limbaugh to President Barack Obama. Tickets to Friday’s show can be purchased at Best Western Sally Port and Los Cerritos and are $30 general admission and $45 VIP. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

helicopter attack alone killed 35 hostages. One American, Frederick Buttaccio from the Houston suburb of Katy, was among the dead. The British government said Saturday it is trying to determine the fate of six people from Britain who are either dead or unaccounted for. The Norwegian government said there were five Norwegians unaccounted for. Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta said Saturday

one Romanian hostage was killed in the course of the siege, while the Malaysian government said two of its citizens were still missing.

jump into a situation and decide what to do instantly. We’re called on to do that all the time in our lives.” Field said the value of acting spontaneously can be applied in “a situation as mundane as driving” or as “complex as deciding what to do career wise,” and is an important skill. “I think the idea is that you can participate in an event, that you don’t necessarily in all situations have to come to an event and watch it happen, you can actually make it happen,” he said. “I think that’s also an important thing for life — that you can jump in and get involved, and you don’t just have to watch the world go by.” Home-schooled student Ema Arnold, 13, has been playing guitar for a yearand-a-half, and said she

whose birthday is celebrated as a national holiday on Monday. Because the date for inauguration set in the Constitution, Jan. 20, falls on a Sunday this year, Obama and Biden were to be sworn in for second terms in separate, private ceremonies today. The public ceremonies are set for Monday, when Obama will take the oath of of fice at noon, then deliver an inaugural address before a large crowd and a national television audience in the millions. The traditional lunch with lawmakers in the Capitol follows, and the inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the White House. There, a reviewing stand was ador ned with the presidential seal and equipped with seats enough for Obama and other dignitaries to watch in relative comfort as military units, marching bands, floats and thousands of participants go past. A pair of inauguration balls will cap the day, including one with a guest list that runs to 40,000 names. A select few — those who donated as much as $1 million to defray inauguration expenses — received special access to public as well as invitation-only receptions and

I think it’s a tremendous learning experience for my son, daughter and myself as well.” Robert Mann, who teaches orchestra for five elementary school districts, said sometimes there’s no better teacher than yourself. “I know from improvisation, it’s nice that the students can’t really make a mistake. It gives them a chance to take the feeling that’s inside of them and express themselves.” “I just think it’s really good for your self-development, your spiritual development,” he said. “You just feel good about yourself when you create things, whether it be music or other forms of art.”

was excited to come to an event where “art and music are combined.” “I like to play music and I like art, and it’s at a contemporary art museum with a lot of people playing music!” Arnold said. “I think it’s cool because you don’t need to have a lot of knowledge about what you’re doing to do it.” Sue Wink, grant writer with AMoCA, said a big part of Saturday’s event was about making music in a place of art. “It’s timeless. Our whole goal with the excellent music at AMoCA was to bring the visual arts and the musical arts together because they compliment each other so well. So bringing beautiful music into a gorgeous gallery, that’s just wonderful.” Jimmy Flores brought his daughter Arieona and son Elijah to the sound jam and said it was a neat experience to hear music while “surrounded by great art.” “My son’s been getting

parties. The second term begins in circumstances different in many ways from the first, but familiar in others. The economy, then in the grip of a fierce and deepening recession, is now recovering slowly as unemployment recedes and stocks flirt with fiveyear highs. The health care legislation that Obama urged Congress to enact in his first inaugural address is the law of the land, courtesy of a split ruling by the Supreme Court. Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden is dead at the hands of U.S. special operations forces. But the organization he inspired is far from moribund, as demonstrated by the justended kidnapping episode Saturday at an Algerian natural gas complex that, according to the Algerian government, left at least 23 hostages dead. The U.S. on Friday acknowledged one American death. When Obama took office in 2009, his Democratic allies held control of Congress. Now, divided government rules, and Republicans who control the House lead the way in insisting the administration agree to spending cuts that will reduce soaring federal deficits. Obama has said he is ready to compromise on that. At the outset of a second term, he also wants

Congress to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws and take steps to reduce gun violence in the wake of the shooting last month in Newtown., Conn., that left 20 elementary school children dead. Yet for once, politics seemed to edge ever so slightly into the background in the most political of cities. Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton headlined a National Day of Service gathering under a tent on the National Mall, where she said she had been inspired by her grandmother, as well as her famous parents. She urged her audience to become part of a “chain of service” by helping the less fortunate. Biden and his wife, Jill, spent time at an armory pitching in as volunteers packed 100,000 care kits for deployed members of the military, wounded warriors, veterans and first responders. Biden credited former President George H. W. Bush, a Republican, for starting the “Points of Light” program, which was a sponsor of the event. He said service was an antidote to “the coarsening of our culture. We’ve got to get back to reaching out to people.” In the evening, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Biden were hosting the Kids’ Inaugural Concert, an event paying special tribute to military spouses and children.

The felony classification would apply to wasteful poaching crimes involving bighorn sheep, ibex, oryx, elk, deer and pronghorn antelope.

Will Papen’s president pro tem election help governor?

SANTA FE — The New Mexico Senate is being run by still another coalition. What causes such a thing to happen? And how will this coalition work out? Will it provide Gov. Susana Martinez an easier pathway for her prized legislation? Will it make the governor’s 2014 re-election easier? The new Senate president pro tem is Sen. Mary Kay Papen. She is from Las Cruces, as is our governor. Papen says they are longtime acquaintances and although they have had their differences, they never have been adversarial. Papen describes herself as a fiscal conservative but a social moderate. She is a strong supporter of Sen. John Arthur Smith, of Deming, a fiscal conservative who chairs the Senate Finance Committee. The New Mexico Legislature is not unfamiliar with cross-party coalitions running either the House or the Senate. Back in the late 1970s, a group of disenchant-




ed Democrats joined with Republicans, who were the minority party, to form a coalition headed by a Democrat but run by Republicans. It was called the Cowboy Coalition because most of the Democrats were from the southern part of the state. The atmosphere was not pleasant. In the mid-1980s, Republicans in the Senate managed the same sort of coup, headed by Sen. Les Houston, a Democrat turned Republican. That coalition formed during a legislative session. Committee chairs were unceremoniously replaced during the middle of committee meetings. It happened to the late Sen. Frank

Roswell Daily Record

Papen in the middle of a Senate Finance Committee meeting. And now Papen’s widow, Mary Kay, has engineered another overthrow. But this takeover is expected to be much more civil. It is likely to be similar to the overthrows of the last three Democratic Senate leaders. Sen. Tim Jennings, a Roswell Democrat, lost the Democratic nomination for president pro tem of the Senate eight years ago but then went to Senate Republican leaders and obtained support for a coalition with several Democrats. Jennings still called the shots as a Democrat. He appointed Democrats as committee chairs. Relationships of the two parties were cordial. Republicans said they just preferred being led by a moderateconservative Democrat rather than one they felt was more liberal. The other time Republicans and a few Democrats teamed up to override the choice of the Democratic caucus was to oust Sen.

Manny Aragon, with whom some Democrats, both liberals and conservatives, had grown tired. Papen’s appeal may be similar to that of Jennings, in which case the Senate will proceed normally. But some Democrats fear Papen will provide too much support to the governor in getting her proposals through the Senate, thereby assisting in her 2014 re-election. By the time the pro tem race got to the floor, Papen had convinced the leadership that she had the support of all Republicans plus at least five Democrats. So instead of fighting it out in public, Sen. Pete Campos, the choice of the Democratic caucus, nominated Papen. Her unanimous election means the Democratic defections never will be known for sure. The unusual opening day began at noon. Soon after, legislative leaders were informed that their much-heralded webcasting system did not work. People looking for a

computer connection to watch the pro tem battle in the Senate got nothing but a black screen. The fix finally came just as Gov. Martinez was beginning her opening day speech. No, it wasn’t a sneaky trick from the governor’s office. The Legislature is the landlord of the Capitol. One early report announced that Sen. Papen is the first woman to serve as president pro tem of the Senate. That was soon corrected to state that Louise Coe of Lincoln County was pro tem from 1935 to 1940. Coe wrote a very interesting review of her 15 years of legislative experience. The book certainly could be termed a tell-all because she was amazingly candid, even about very personal matters. The 1981 book is titled “Lady and the Law Books.” (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at

Federal pay hikes premature

Pay raises, generally speaking, are typically awarded to workers during salad days when the economy is good, revenue is up, and performance warrants a reward. While we’ve seen some fragile areas of improvement in the economy, things are not yet so good that gover nment cof fers ar e flush with enough cash to give raises to workers or elected officials. Yet on Dec. 27, in the midst of fiscal cliff mania, President Barack Obama issued an executive order lifting a freeze on federal employees’ pay, including for members of Congress. Granted, the president’s move would account for merely a speck in an already massive federal budget, but we worry that the symbolic nature of his action yet again illustrates how out of touch politicians in Washington have become. It is not only the president. On Jan. 1, the House of Representatives voted for a congressional pay freeze on a bipartisan vote, 287-129. That means 129 House members at least tacitly believe that they and other federal workers are entitled to raises when many of their constituents, the people they serve, are still struggling to make ends meet. Even if the unemployment rate were not hovering at 7.8 percent, a raise would be questionable. According to the Congressional Budget Office, total compensation for federal employees is already at least 16 percent more than for comparable employees in the private sector. That strikes us as worrying. The average base salary for a full-time civilian federal employee as of September 2010 was $76,231, according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. Compare that to 2011 median household income in America of $52,762. Members of Congress make $174,000 a year. In a statement, Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., said she voted against the pay freeze bill because “middle-class federal employees have already helped reduce the deficit by contributing nearly $90 billion in reduced pay and pension benefits.” Even so, in times of economic tumult, those financed by taxpayers — public servants — ought to sacrifice a little more, at least until there is a full economic recovery. We don’t intend to nit-pick about pay scales for government workers, nor are we interested in the class-warfare rhetoric that permeates Washington these days. But we do believe our leaders and public servants in Washington (and state houses throughout the country) should not be immune from the ebbs and flows of the economy, especially considering that those who pay their salaries are not. Guest Editorial The Orange County Register DEAR DOCTOR K: It’s finally happened — I need reading glasses! Can you help me sort through the different types of corrective lenses? DEAR READER: I don’t know how old you are, but if you’re over 40, there’s a good chance you are like me. I have both myopia (difficulty seeing distant objects clearly) and presbyopia, which makes reading difficult. In myopia, objects in the distance do not focus sharply on the retina — the part of the eye that senses the image and sends it into the brain. Glasses can bend the light entering your eyes from distant objects and focus the light on the retina. Having trouble reading is

Using personal email makes public business private GWYNETH DOLAND NEW MEXICO FOG

Here in New Mexico we’re very lucky to have excellent laws that guarantee your right to know what your government is up to. The Inspection of Public Records Act was designed to ensure, as its authors wrote, “all persons are entitled to the greatest possible information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of public officers and employees.” But IPRA dates from 1994, when only a small fraction of us had computers on our desks at work. How things have



caused by an entirely different problem. When we look at something close up, as we do when we’re reading, little muscles tug on our lenses to change their shape. That change causes the page we’re reading to focus sharply on the retina. As we get older, our lenses stiffen and lose their flexibility; they no longer can focus near objects properly.

changed! These days it seems almost everything we do is processed electronically at one point, and that includes most of the business conducted by public officials and employees. But when officials use their private accounts to conduct public business, that promise of transparency is clouded. That’s because the rank-andfile employees charged with responding to public records requests have no way of easily retrieving public records that might be lurking in their bosses’ private accounts. Devotees of open government in New Mexico have always known that public

Glasses can bend light coming off the page so that it focuses better on the retina. If you have only presbyopia, the simplest way to regain close vision is to wear reading glasses. Many drugstores and supermarkets carry them, but off-the-rack reading glasses may not be right for you. Many people need different amounts of correction in each eye and therefore require custom glasses. Also, custom glasses allow your eyes to focus properly across the full range of the lens. If, like me, you have both myopia and presbyopia, one option is two sets of glasses: one for distance vision and one for close vision. Or you can wear bifocals, in which the

record is a public record no matter where it is physically located — whether a report sits in a filing cabinet in the of fice or in an employee’s briefcase at home, for example. But today we all have fewer pieces of paper in filing cabinets and briefcases and more documents sitting in our laptops, phones and in the cloud. But the principle of open government remains the same: to ensure, as the Inspection of Public Records Act states, “that all persons are entitled to the greatest possible information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of public of ficers and

upper portion of the glass corrects for distance and the lower portion for near vision. Another option is trifocals, which correct for middle vision in addition to distance and near vision. Trifocals may be a good choice if you spend a lot of time looking at objects at a middle distance, such as a computer screen. Progressive lenses are another option. They combine several levels of adjustment to correct both distance and close-up vision. (I’ve put an illustration of different corrective lenses on my website, Contact lenses, like glasses, can correct just for myopia or See DR. K, Page A5

employees.” Lately, folks have been asking us about the details of email and how it should be treated in ter ms of public records requests. So we sat down and agreed on some points: First, if a document sitting in a public official’s desktop computer at work qualifies as a public record under the definition in IPRA, then it’s still a public record when it’s stored on that official’s personal laptop at home. Similarly, a public record sent or received by email is subject to inspection

Discipline over time results in less stress OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

As a teenager I had many clever signs up on the walls of my bedroom. One of them read “You have enough money right now to last you the rest of your life ... that is unless you spend some of it.” The sign, although creative, was not realistic. It costs money to live. Accept it. Get used to it. This is quite simply a fact of life. Like gravity, it is a constant that applies to each one of us. The basics of survival, food and shelter, cost money. Each of us must have a source of financial support to just live from day to day. Put this side by side with a study that showed that more than 40 percent of U.S. families spend more than they ear n. Amazingly, it is insignificant in this study whether a family lives on minimum wage or a very significant income, four out of 10 American families outspend their income. According to Progressive Debt Relief’s consumer debt statistics, Americans make more than $1.5 trillion worth of credit card purchases annually. About 18 percent of all U.S. personal consumption expenditures are made on bank credit cards. The average U.S. household pays $950 in interest each year. The typical credit card purchase is 112 percent higher than if using cash. Americans carry,



on average $8,400 in credit card debt. If a person were to make a 2 percent payment every month at an annual interest rate of 15 percent, it would take about 30 years to pay off and the payments would include about $13,000 paid in interest. I understand that it is the American way to buy nice things and to enjoy life, but this outspending occurs because of a lack of discipline. Consider the consequences of these actions. Finances are typically a major stressor in marriages. Some surveys put financial arguments as the leading cause for divorces. Regardless, every marriage, healthy or not, has the “finances” discussion on a regular basis. It is a core issue in a marriage relationship. Every marriage has a person who is more apt to spend and one who is less apt to spend. Most of us received our training

from our parents. On a short list of what keeps us awake at night, most Americans would have financial issues on their list. Whether we are happy with what we have or unhappy because of what we don’t have, we still have the same things. Our attitude on what we have impacts our quality of life more so than what we have. Let me put this in a different perspective for you. While about half of the world lives on less than $2 a day, Americans drop more than that on a single cup of coffee at the front end of our day without thinking twice. There are villages all over our planet in Third World countries that don’t even have fresh water. On a global level, we should be content just that we have an old couch to sit on or an outdated television set that still works. So how did we get to where we wake up today? When all is said and done, the debt we have is a result of choices we have made. No one forced us to get a credit card or to buy a car on credit. It was our choice to buy that new living room set on credit. The American way is living on acquiring our wants, not our needs. We have an “I’ve got to have it now” mentality. This little piece of plastic allows me to take the

product home right now. We’ll worry about paying for it later. For today we’ll just “kick the can down the road.” We tell ourselves things like “We deserve it” or “If our friends can afford this, so can we.” Marketers understand the power of impulse buying. Why save for six months to pay cash when we can enjoy the product today (even though it will take the next 24 months to pay it of f with the interest that is accrued)? The end result is that our lack of financial discipline creates stress. Financial stress translates into stress in our day-to-day lives. It creates difficulties in relationships, most importantly in marriage relationships. Financial issues have ended many relationships. They have redefined many others, creating high degrees of difficulties at the heart of the relationship. I remember a professor back when I was taking anthropology in college (more than 30 years ago) telling our class that a study showed that if mankind worked just three hours a day, he would have enough resources to live and take care of the essentials in life. The followup comment was, we work much longer than three hours a day because we are seeking to get ahead. Regardless of the reason we do what we do, we live in a world

just for presbyopia. For many years I wore a contact lens in one eye to see things in the distance and a different lens in the other eye for reading. Not everyone’s brain can tolerate this, but mine did. Bifocal, trifocal and progressive contact lenses are also available. Another, newer, option is adjustable focusing eyeglasses. By moving a tiny slider on the bridge of the glasses, the wearer can focus at a range of distances without zones or lines. If you are doing

something that doesn’t require close vision — like playing or watching a sport — most of the surface of your glasses can be dedicated to distance vision. Then when you read a book, most of the surface of your glasses can be dedicated to near vision. With all of the options available, you should have no problem finding the right lenses for you.

where we are constantly having to find a way to climb out of a hole we dug ourselves. Our past choices have led to current consequences. My challenge to you today is to elect to swim upstream against what society finds acceptable. Think big picture and avoid impulsive decisions. Any deal that is available today will likely be available again at some point in the future. Exercise discipline over time and pay off your credit cards. Take a Dave Ramsey money management course and follow his instructions. Recognize the material blessings that you have received. Have an attitude of gratitude. Don’t make financial decisions based upon trying to impress others or to “keep up with the Jones.” If you can get your financial world in order, you can significantly reduce a major stressor in your world. Less stress means a healthier family relationship, a higher quality of life, and better sleep at night — three things we all can use. Just a thought ...

Praise for basketball tournament

Dear Editor: Congratulations to the Sunrise Optimists Club and its members for another successful Poe Corn Invitational Basketball Tournament. This organization continues to provide a superior athletic and social experience for young men from across the state. This, the oldest invitational basketball tournament in our state, continues to provide a variety of excellent experiences for all the invited teams. These offerings range from: A three-point shooting competition for the players and their coaches to a luncheon for the coaches, the players, their parents and fans plus a team breakfast. In addition this tournament permits the annual introduction of a retired individual who has given back to the young people of this community. This year’s honoree was Judy Smyth of Goddard. Again, congratulations to all the teams, their coaches, this year’s honoree and the hard working members of the Sunrise Optimist. Keep up the good work! Duane Evans Roswell

Support for veterans appreciated

Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Roswell community for its support of the American Legion Post 28 during the end of the year activities. First, thanks to Sandra and Gene Lee for their support of the American Legion and myself. They and their extended family have paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War. Veterans Day at Roswell High School was a patriotic event organized by principal Bolanos and Amy Davis (PAC) and included the input from the Legion. Louis Maestas, master of ceremonies and Legion member, honored the veterans with a fantastic program. Goddard High School and students also had a very patriotic program honoring veterans. The huge and loud reception was well received by the veterans. Bob Wooley, Legion member, led the Veterans Day activities at the veterans war memorial on the courthouse lawn. The Veterans Day parade was well attended in spite of the wind and weather. The American Legion Riders Chapter 21 rode in the parade led by President Orlando (Hawk) Padilla and Jimmy (Yogi) Montoya. Thanks to the Job Corps for major outside maintenance of Post 28 for Veterans Day. The students and staff consisting of Robert Gibson and Ralph Cobos did a wonderful job. Pocket flags that will be sent to the troops in Afghanistan were folded and a personal message included at All Saints Catholic School. American Legion members provided the flags and the program. Del Norte Elementary School also folded pocket flags that were sent to the troops. Sierra Middle School principal Martinez was moved by the patriotic flag presentation by the Legion members. Ralph Tellez, Joe Lovato and Ralph Matta, staff members and also American Legion members, assisted in the pocket flag ceremonies. Roswell Daily Record featured the pocket flag project in their Vision Magazine. Again, thanks to everyone for making Veterans Day and the holidays for veterans, and our troops abroad, one where they are not forgotten.

OPINION III Energy of the future

Dear Editor, In my last letter I said that Thorium Energy will be the next energy age. I need to clarify that statement. Thorium will be the next long term energy source. In the last several years, we have actually entered into the “golden age” of natural gas as an energy source because of a hydraulic fracturing process, best known as “fracking.” Horizontal drilling and fracking is to the gas and oil industry as thorium and molten salt reactor is to the nuclear power industry. Both had their origins back in the 1940s and 1950s. Fracking has created a natural gas boom (and a lot of individual millionaires) because of the technology improvements of horizontal drilling. Thorium can also create a boom in cheap, abundant electricity, industrial heat and clean transportation fuels, all because of the technological improvements with molten salt reactors. If you look at the spectrum of all the possible energy sources for power, thorium (and uranium/plutonium) has the most dense energy and renewable (wind and solar) has the least dense energy. I am not anti-anything when it comes to energy, but I am pro-efficient energy. And for me, the most efficient energy source is thorium processed into power through a molten salt reactor. These reactors are like a gas furnace, gas/thorium in, burn up, heat out, turn generators. The most practical of these furnace type devices is the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor (LFTR, pronounced lifter). However, even with private citizens like Bill Gates and Hector Dauvergne investing their personal wealth into Thorium Molten Salt Reactors (TMSR) and countries like China and India committed to thorium energy, it will take 20-30 years to commercialize TMSR around the world. In the meantime, pray that president Obama doesn’t write some stupid executive order to hinder the natural gas boom. Natural gas is the transition energy source until the thorium fuel cycle technology is available. Renewable is just way too expensive and it’s not getting any cheaper. Hint: look up rare earth elements and wind turbine and solar panel requirements for them. And, by the way, who is making this stuff? China? No way! Folks, there is no such thing as free energy, from the sun, wind or ground. However, the abundance of the element thorium throughout the Earth’s crust promises widespread energy independence through LFTR technology, for longer than the existence of the sun itself. And, thorium is also found throughout the galaxies, so these little LFTR devices could be powering space exploration as well. While thorium is so plentiful when compared to other energy sources; a mere 6,600 tonnes of thorium could provide the energy equivalent of the combined global consumption of 5 billion tonnes of coal, 31 billion barrels of oil, 3 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, and 65,000 tonnes of uranium. It is so efficient that a marble size of thorium can supply an individual's lifetime energy needs; or a grain silo full could power North America for a year; and known thorium reserves could power advanced societies to the end of time. If this energy is so great how comes we haven’t developed it sooner? There are several answers to that question but I am going to start with the one that bothers me the most: environmentalists. I used to be one of those and like an exsmoker; I can’t stand to be around them. They have changed, and not for the betterment of mankind. At least, that is my current opinion. Nuclear power got off to a bad start because of political reasons that I have passed on in previous letters, but let me tell you the environmentalist were all over nuclear power as doom and gloom faster than a fly on you know what. I do and will support anyone who offers and suggests a solution to improve the safety of any technology that will protect the environment and mankind, but I have a real problem when the attitude toward nuclear is: no-nuke is the best nuke. The Earth is one big nuclear reactor and uses thorium, uranium and potassium to run its power plant. The sun is also a reactor and both are stabilized because of their molten core that is liquefied by heat in a state of fusion. LFTR technology is similar (uses fission instead of fusion) and should have been the commercial nuclear power solution from the beginning. Well, now we have a second chance to do it right. Except we still have a non-technical problem. Yes, the government hasn’t a clue and the EPA has been holding up this technology for decades. Learn more about thorium and LFTR at and Don’t forget to read the anti-nuke and the anti-hydrocarbon websites as well to get a balanced understanding of the issues of world energy. Check out to get info on fracking. Martin Kral Roswell

Roswell Daily Record Slaughter of the innocent

Dear Editor: On Friday, Dec. 14, the message of the Christmas season, “Peace on Earth, Good Will to Man,” was abruptly interrupted by a crazed gunman, Adam Lana, who massacred 26 people, including 20 elementary school children, in Newtown, Conn., a quiet New England community of 27,000. When I opened Saturday’s paper and read the headlines, “Slaughter Of The Innocent,” my thoughts were not only of the tragic deaths of these 20 innocent children, but also of the countless thousands of unborn children who are slaughtered each day, and as the “Ballad of the Unborn” states in verse, their only crime was they were “unloved.” Many people today are still asking, ”Why did God allow this to happen, and why in America?” Mother Teresa, who ministered to thousands of slum children in India, in her keynote address to the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., in 1994, spoke to this question: “ I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against a child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? ... Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want.” The U.S. not only has the distinction of having the most liberal abortion laws of any country, but is also recognized as one of the most violent. Figures were just released showing that there were 1.2 million abortions in 2008 (the last year figures were available). Since 1973 when Roe Vs. Wade legalized abortion on demand, it has been estimated that 50 million helpless, unborn infants have been poisoned, torn apart, dismembered, crushed and destroyed by the “unfeeling steel instruments of the abortionist.” The darkest days in Israel’s existence occurred when each man “did what was right in his own eyes.” In other words, they had no moral compass. This is where our county is today. The Bible, which was our moral compass for more than 200 years, is no longer used as a reference when determining our nation’s moral standards and values. Just prior to Israel’s destruction at the hands of the Babylonians, God pronounced His final judgment on the sinful and disobedient nation with the chilling words “because there was no more remedy ...” With the re-election of President Obama, I believe this is our position before God today — “no more remedy.” Obama is not only America’s most biblically hostile president but is also the most ardent supporter of abortion on demand. He has already put in place policies that will result in the deaths of thousands of the unborn. The last lines of the poem “America’s Holocaust” is a stark reminder of the depth of our moral depravity and why I believe God’s blessings are no longer on America: “Germany’s holocaust came to an end; How high can you pile the bodies of men? But clever America has a new tomb, a private gas chamber – this place is the womb; And silently our babies (four thousand a day) with torn little bodies are hurried away; By the truck in the alley it’s just trash they say; Christian America, do you not know? As sure as the dawn, you will reap what you sow.” Respectfully yours, Ted Traxler Roswell

Gun regulations and mental health

Dear Editor: I taught adults at the Technical School in Madison, Wis., in the late ’80s. Things were so different then and we felt safe. As a teacher and a Christian, I would not want to be required to have gun. I could never shoot anyone. I feel that those who protect our children and our schools are trained for their profession. And, when they choose their occupation, they are well aware of what they need to do to protect others. I also think that everyone should have a mental health evaluation, just as they have an annual physical health exam. Not every “killer” is mentally unbalanced, but an evaluation could possibly give clues that might point to erratic behavior. Yvonne Lehman Roswell

Ralph Davis Shamas

District Judge Ralph Davis Shamas, 64, passed away Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, at his home in Roswell. Judge Shamas was born in Roswell on Oct. 30, 1948. He was the youngest of three children born to Joseph Bashara Shamas Sr. from Dudghria, Lebanon, and Flora Smith Shamas of Melrose. He grew up in Roswell and attended St. Peter Catholic School to the fifth grade, Mesa Middle School, North Junior High, Roswell High School, and was a member of the first graduating class of Goddard High School in 1966. He received his undergraduate degree at UNM in 1970, where he was a member of SAE fraternity. In May 1973, he received his Juris Doctorate Cum Laude from the University of Iowa, and served on and was published in the Law Review. Judge Shamas began his 32-year legal career with Atwood, Malone, Tur ner and Sabin in 1973-1977, where he was made partner. In 1977-1979, he was a partner in the Hunt and Shamas Law Firm, the only plaintiff’s firm in Roswell at that time, where he was the first lawyer in Chaves County in 25 years to win a punitive damages award from a jury. In 1979, he opened his solo practice as a plaintiff’s and criminal defense lawyer. At that time, he was the first lawyer in the state of New Mexico to receive a $1 million verdict for a wrongful death. This case was tried with current Judge Charles Currier. In 1985-1991, he began a partnership with K. Douglas Perrin and Phil Brewer. Judge Shamas then took a sabbatical from practicing law for 1 1/2 years to train and race his beloved racehorses at Ruidoso Downs, Sunland Park, Albuquerque Downs, Turf Paradise, Santa Anita, Los Alimatos, Golden Gate, Raton and Santa Fe. He also trained for his close friends and their families, Paul Taylor Jr. and Paul Taylor III, becoming a leading trainer in New Mexico. In Judge Shamas’ earlier years of practice, he represented four capital murder cases, receiving not guilty verdicts. In the 1990s, while in private practice, he was the lead attorney for Clay vs. Ferrell Gas Co., which was decided in his favor in the United States Supreme Court. This was a landmark case which set precedent for “the greater the danger, the higher the standards.” The case has become standard use not

only in New Mexico, but also our sister states of Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma. Every defendant or plaintiff Judge Shamas represented was held dear to his heart. He represented them to the fullest of his ability, and more often than not, he was successful. Practicing the law was his passion. In 2005, Judge Shamas was appointed by Gov. Bill Richardson to fill the vacant seat in Division VI for the 5th Judicial District, representing Chaves, Eddy and Lea counties for the state of New Mexico. In 2006, he was elected to this position, and served until his death. During his time on the bench, Judge Shamas became an avid golfer, joining a standing tee time of 1 p.m. on Sundays at NMMI golf course, with his golfing buddies Judge Steven Bell, Jim Schultz, Matt Reinsmoen, Dr. Hugh Burroughs and Alberto Goenaga. Anyone who wished to join them was always welcome. Judge Shamas was a member of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association, American T rial Lawyers Association, New Mexico Bar Association and the Chaves County Bar Association until he became a district judge. On Feb. 16, 1977, he married Elizabeth Anderson Clark in Valdosta, Ga. His wife survives him at their home in Roswell. Judge Shamas was preceded in death by his parents Joseph and Flora Shamas; his brother Jerry Shamas (age 11 days); and sisters, Annie, Mable, Gloria and Martha Shamas. He is survived by his brother Joseph Bashara Shamas Jr. of Roswell; Joe’s children, Bonnie Berry and husband Tom, of Roswell, Denise Gardner, of Dallas, Phillip Shamas and Greg Shamas and wife Martha, of Albuquerque; his dearly beloved sister Joanna Shamas L yle, of California, and her daughter Lisa L yle Her nandez and husband Joel, of Albuquerque, and her daughter Madeleine King, of Las Cruces; Judge Shamas’ children, Ralph Shamas Jr., of Houston, Kathryn Elizabeth Wilson and her husband Kevin, and their children Amanda Margaret and Ian Thomas, of Mesa, Ariz., Kristen Leigh Heybur n and her husband Paul, and their children, John Rice and Elizabeth Anne, of Houston; his brothers-in-law, Dr. Mark C. Clark and wife Catherine, and their children, Sophie and Mark, of Winter Park, Fla., Timothy Thatcher Clark and wife Jennifer, and their children, Caroline, Thatcher and Greycyn, of Winter Park; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Also his dearly beloved 15-year -old Schnauzer, YaDeeNee (“you sweet thing” in Lebanese). Judge Shamas was known to be a fair, ethical and compassionate district judge who thoroughly studied every brief and motion presented to him. He was always prepared to hear a case and expected his lawyers to do the same. The supreme court of the state


of New Mexico in a decision in one of his cases called him “our District Judge” wherein Judge Shamas saw fit to “right a wrong.” For him it was an honor to serve his community and he leaves behind many dear family and friends. He will be missed greatly, most especially by his wife Elizabeth. A rosary will be led by Sharon Bell on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, at 7 p.m., at St. Peter Church. A funeral Mass service, with the Rev. Charlie Martinez, OFM, officiating, will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, at 1 p.m., at St. Peter Church. Following the Mass, Judges Charles Currier, Steven Bell and Freddie Romero, along with attorney Phil Brewer, will speak briefly at St. Peter Church. A reception in honor of Judge Shamas will immediately follow at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, and all are welcome to attend. Funeral directions are under the care of Ballard Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in memory of Judge Ralph D. Shamas to the American Cancer Society or Vista Care Hospice.

Chefs hail first foodies with inauguration salute Obituaries

WASHINGTON (AP) — Some of Washington’s top chefs are coming together to salute the president ahead of the inauguration, in part because of the first family’s influence on the culture around food. Chicago-based Chef Art Smith is opening his Capitol Hill restaurant Art and Soul for a late-night Chefs Ball expected to attract food fans of all stripes Saturday night with its relatively low ticket price of $75. Seven celebrity chefs teamed up for the charity event to prepare delicious bites for a sold-out crowd of more than 500. From the White House garden to Michelle Obama’s focus on healthy eating, Smith said the Obamas, more than any other first family, have embraced fresh American food and care about where food comes from. Smith was Oprah Winfrey’s personal chef for years and competed on TV’s “Top Chef Masters.” For his first inaugural ball, Smith is cooking his trademark fried chicken. There would probably be a riot if he didn’t, he said. Guests are expected to include “Modern Family” actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Gayle King, co-anchor of “CBS This Morning” and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. The wait staff will wear white bow ties from Ferguson’s organization T to promote gay marriage rights in Illinois and across the country. Chefs will serve up dishes at stations around the restaurant. Smith is joined by Washington restaurateurs Erik Bruner-Yang of Toki Underground, Scott Drewno of The Source, Todd Gray of Equinox Restaurant, Rock Harper of TV’s “Hell’s Kitchen” who helps lead the charity D.C. Central Kitchen and Mike Isabella, a “Top Chef AllStars” finalist whose

restaurants include Graffiato and Bandolero. In the 1980s, Smith said he visited the Reagan White House when it was party central. The Reagans loved entertaining, he said, but all the cooking was French. “America had not really discovered or embraced its food to say ‘We are America. We are about our food. We are about this wonderful melting pot of people who have all come together and created this amazing culture,”’ Smith said. In the past 20 years, tastes have changed. As first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton embraced American cooking, and Laura Bush brought Tex-Mex to the White House, Smith said. The Obamas have gone a

step further to foster more conversation about fresh ingredients.

Continued from Page A8

Isabella, who joined Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s inaugural American Chefs Corps last year to use food as a tool for diplomacy, credits the Obama administration with changing attitudes around food. “I think they’re the first to really indulge into the whole culinary scene, putting chef programs together for schools and kids, dining in restaurants around the city and really believing in food and farm-to-table,” he said. “It’s been a huge, huge help for us.”

Alvin “Buddy” Hilliard

Alvin “Buddy” Hilliard passed away at his home Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. Buddy was born May 23, 1924, to Carl and Blanche Hilliard, in Sopher, Okla.

He enjoyed getting together with family and friends and telling old stories. Buddy is survived by sisters, O’Berlin White, of Clovis, Ludell McCracken, of El Paso, Texas, and Billy Jean Benton and Carlene Hilliard, of Alpine, Texas. He is also survived by his wife Arlene Hilliard, of the family home; and kids, Patricia, of Carlsbad, Carol, of Texas, Fred Smith, of Roswell, and Debbie McBride, of Alabama. Other surviving kids are Billy Hilliard, Sue Crowder, Steve Peterson, Kelly and

Kim. He has too many grandkids and great-grandkids to name, of whom the youngest were always his favorite. He also has many nieces and nephews. Graveside services were held at South Park Cemetery Friday, Jan. 18, 2013. The Rev. Michael Gilchrest officiated.

Dexter boys wins first John Reid title since ’87 KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

Sometimes believing that you can win is all you really need. Well, that, an outstanding defensive effort on the classification’s best player

and some clutch free-throw shooting in the fourth quarter. Dexter had all three on Saturday and that’s exactly why the Demons walked out of Lewis Gym with the championship trophy of the John Reid Invitational for the first time since 1987.

DEXTER — Lake Arthur’s 21 fourth-quarter points weren’t enough in a 50-32 loss to Cloudcroft on Saturday at the 46th annual John Reid Invitational. The Panthers trailed 12-6 after the first quarter and 27-8 at the half. Lake Arthur won the fourth quarter 21-12. Panther coach Jordon Cooney said his team is on the right path. “We showed some signs of life in the fourth quarter,” he said. “We moved the ball well and attacked the basket. Playing one quarter out of four won’t get you the victory, but we are on the right path.” Luis Velo led Lake Arthur with 14 points, while Felipe De La Cruz added seven for the Panthers.

DORA — Gateway Christian lost to Dora 70-15 on Saturday night. Warrior coach Holly Tipton said that her team struggled with the Dora press. “We had good hustle. We are missing some players and we had some trouble with the press,” she said. “Hopefully we will be all well soon.” Charlee Longmire led Gateway with eight points, while Kate Hammonds chipped in with seven.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Stan Musial, the St. Louis Cardinals star with the corkscrew stance and too many batting records to fit on his Hall of Fame plaque, died Saturday. He was 92. Stan the Man was so revered in St. Louis that he has two statues outside Busch Stadium — one just wouldn’t do him justice. He was one of baseball’s great-

est hitters, shining in the mold of Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio even without the bright lights of the big city. Musial won seven National League batting titles, was a three-time MVP and helped the Cardinals capture three World Series championships in the 1940s. The Cardinals announced Musial’s death in a news release. They said he died Saturday evening at his home in Ladue surrounded by family. The team said Musial’s son-in-law, Dave Edmonds, informed the club of Musial’s death. “We have lost the most

SANTA TERESA — A night after suffering its first loss, Roswell responded with a 48-39 win over Santa Teresa on Saturday. The Coyotes (14-1) trailed 14-6 in the second quarter, but led 24-22 heading into the break. Roswell grew its lead to 34-28 by the end of the third quarter and won the final quarter 14-11 to pick up the win. Roswell coach Britt Cooper said that he was pleased to see his team bounce back after its first loss. “They had us down 14-6 at one point, and by halftime we had got a lead,” he said. “They are a good ballclub. It was good to see the kids bounce back and get the win today.” Cesar Nava paced the Coyotes with 20 points, while Alex Olesinski added 12 for Roswell.

DEXTER — In Hagerman’s game against Dexter on Friday, the Bobcats held a seven-point lead less than a minute into the third quarter, but saw that lead disappear as the Demons rallied for the win. Against NMMI on Saturday at the 46th annual John Reid Invitational, Hagerman led by 13 at the start of the second half, but the Colts rattled off 10 straight points to start the second half.

time on a David Lopez triple with 3:18 left in the first quarter. Over the remainder of the first and all of the second and third quarters, Dexter never trailed. Tularosa closed to within three by the end of the third quarter and then took a 39-38 lead less than two minutes into the fourth on a Coleman runner in the lane. The Wildcats’ lead lasted all of 57 seconds before Lopez split a pair at the line to tie the game at 39 with 5:51 remaining.

beloved member of the Cardinals family,” team chairman William DeWitt Jr. said. “Stan Musial was the greatest player in Cardinals history and one of the best players in the history of baseball.” Musial was the second baseball Hall of Famer who died Saturday. Longtime Baltimore Orioles manager Earl Weaver also passed away, at age 82. Musial spent his entire 22-year career with the Cardinals and made the All-Star team 24 times — baseball held two All-Star games each summer for a few seasons. A pitcher in the low minors until he injured his arm, Musial turned to playing the outfield and first base. It was a stroke of luck for him, as he went on to hit .331 with 475 home runs before retiring in 1963. Widely considered the greatest Cardinals player ever, the outfielder and first baseman was the first person in team history to have his number retired. Ol’ 6 probably was the most popular, too, especially after Albert Pujols skipped town. At the suggestion of a pal, actor John Wayne, he carried around autographed cards of himself to give away. He enjoyed doing magic tricks for kids and was fond of pulling out a harmonica to entertain crowds with a favorite, “The Wabash Cannonball.” Humble, scandal-free, and eager to play every day,

remained an Oriole to the end. The notoriously feisty Hall of Fame manager died at age 82 on a Caribbean cruise associated with the Orioles, his marketing agent said Saturday. “Earl was a black and white manager,” former O’s ace and Hall of Fame member Jim Palmer said Saturday. “He kind of told you what your job description was going to be and kind of basically told you if you wanted to play on the Orioles, this was what you needed to do. And if you couldn’t do it, I’ll get someone else. I know that’s kind of tough love, but I don’t think anyone other than Marianna, his wife, would describe Earl as a warm and fuzzy guy.” Weaver took the Orioles to the World Series four times over 17 seasons but won only one title, in 1970. His .583 winning percentage ranks fifth among managers who served 10 or more seasons in the 20th century. Dick Gordon said Weaver’s wife told him that Weaver went back to his cabin after dinner and began choking between 10:30 and 11 Friday night. Gordon said a cause of death has not been determined. “It’s a sad day. Earl was a terrific manager,” Orioles vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette


just made plays. “It was huge that we were able to not let them stretch (the lead), but regain the lead and stretch it for us.” By the 2:53 mark, Dexter led 46-39. Coleman hit back-to-back baskets in a span of 40 seconds to draw the Wildcats within three, but Dexter answered again with more free throws. Amador Amaya knocked down three freebies and Barrientos added two, pushing the Demon lead out to eight with 35 seconds left. Coleman scored four points in the final 22 seconds, but it wasn’t nearly enough to get Tularosa back in it. Coleman finished with a teambest 24, including 10 of the team’s 12 in the fourth quarter. That stat line is a bit deceiving, though.

the Demons. They missed just four attempts at the line, helping to stave of f any chance of a Tularosa comeback. “That was huge for us. This morning at shootaround, that was something that we preached because (on Friday) we were not very good at free-throw shooting down the stretch,” Voight said. “We told (the kids), ‘That’s going to get you beat in games like tonight.’ We really spent some time working on free throws and it worked out for us tonight.” The three-point spurt was the start of an 8-0 Demon run — a Lopez bucket was the only field goal during the run — that last nearly three minutes. “That was big. We regained the lead and went on that stretch at a good time because it was coming down to the end of the game,” said Voight. “Right there when (Tularosa) took the lead, Coleman

Musial struck a chord with fans throughout the Midwest and beyond. For much of his career, St. Louis was the most western outpost in the majors, and the Cardinals’ vast radio network spread word about him in all directions. Farmers in the field and families on the porch would tune in, as did a future president — Bill Clinton recalled doing his homework listening to Musial’s exploits. Musial’s public appearances dwindled in recent years, though he took part in the pregame festivities at Busch during the 2011 postseason as the Cardinals won the World Series. And he was at the White House in February 2011 when President Barack Obama presented him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor for contributions to society. At the ceremony, President Obama said: “Stan remains to this day an icon untarnished, a beloved pillar of the community, a gentleman you’d want your kids to emulate.” He certainly delivered at the plate. Musial never struck out 50 times in a season. He led the NL in most every hitting category for at least one year, except homers. He hit a career -high 39 home runs in 1948, falling one short of winning the Triple Crown. In all, Musial held 55 records when he retired in 1963. Fittingly, the accolades on his his bronze Hall plaque start off with this fact, rather than flowery said. “The simplicity and clarity of his leadership and his passion for baseball was unmatched. He’s a treasure for the Orioles. He leaves a terrific legacy of winning baseball with the Orioles and we’re so grateful for his contribution. He has a legacy that will live on.” Weaver will forever remain a part of Camden Yards. A statue of him was dedicated last summer in the stadium’s flag court, along with the rest of the team’s Hall of Fame members. “Earl Weaver stands alone as the greatest manager in the history of the Orioles organization and one of the greatest in the history of baseball,” Orioles owner Peter Angelos said. “This is a sad day for everyone who knew him and for all Orioles fans. Earl made his passion for the Orioles known both on and off the field. On behalf of the Orioles, I extend my condolences to his wife, Marianna, and to his family.” Weaver was a saltytongued manager who preferred to wait for a threerun homer rather than manufacture a run with a stolen base or a bunt. While some baseball purists argued that strategy, no one could dispute the results. “Earl was well known for being one of the game’s most colorful characters with a memorable wit, but he was also amongst its most loyal,” Commissioner Bud Selig said. “On behalf of Major League Baseball, I

prose: “Holds many National League records ...” He played nearly until 43rd birthday, adding to his totals. He got a hit with his final swing, sending an RBI single past Cincinnati’s rookie second baseman — that was Pete Rose, who would break Musial’s league hit record of 3,630 some 18 years later. Of those hits, Musial got exactly 1,815 at home and exactly 1,815 on the road. He also finished with 1,951 RBIs and scored 1,949 runs. All that balance despite a most unorthodox left-handed stance. Legs and knees close together, he would cock the bat near his ear and twist his body away from the pitcher. When the ball came, he uncoiled. Unusual, that aspect of Musial. Asked to describe the habits that kept him in baseball for so long, Musial once said: “Get eight hours of sleep regularly. Keep your weight down, run a mile a day. If you must smoke, try light cigars. They cut down on inhaling.” One last thing, he said: “Make it a point to bat .300.” As for how he did that, Musial offered a secret. “I consciously memorized the speed at which every pitcher in the league threw his fastball, curve, and slider,” he said. “Then, I’d pick up the speed of the ball in the first 30 feet of its flight and knew how it would move once it has crossed the plate.” It worked pretty well, considering Musial began send my deepest condolences to his wife, Marianna, their family and all Orioles fans.” Weaver had a reputation as a winner, but umpires knew him as a hothead. Weaver would often turn his hat backward and yell directly into an umpire’s face to argue a call or a rule, and after the inevitable ejection he would more often than not kick dirt on home plate or on the umpire’s shoes. Orioles programs sold at the old Memorial Stadium frequently featured photos of Weaver squabbling. He was ejected 91 times, including once in both games of a doubleheader. Asked once if his reputation might have harmed his

“I am proud. Jim Coleman is a good player. He got 24 tonight, and that is a lot, but he had to work for those 24,” Voight said about his team’s defensive effort against Coleman. “It wasn’t just given to him on easy layups. He hit tough shots. “I’m so proud of our kids. I’m so proud of all of them. It wasn’t just the kids who were guarding Coleman, it was the other kids who had to pinch in and help.” Coleman might be the best player in Class 2A, but it was Lopez — the tournament’s MVP — who looked like the best player on the floor on this night. He poured in a game-high 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 shooting at the charity stripe. “David is a good player. We like to call him the best player who no one has ever heard of,” Voight said of Lopez. “In 2A basketball,

his baseball career as a pitcher in the low minors. And by his account, as he said during his induction speech in Cooperstown, an injury had left him as a “dead, left-handed pitcher just out of Class D.” Hoping to still reach the majors, he turned toward another position. It was just what he needed. Musial made his major league debut late in 1941,

chances to gain entry into the Hall of Fame, Weaver admitted, “It probably hurt me.” Not for long. He entered the hall in 1996. “When you discuss our game’s motivational masters, Earl is a part of that conversation,” Baseball Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson said. “He was a proven leader in the dugout and loved being a Hall of Famer. Though small in stature, he was a giant as a manager.” His ejections were overshadowed by his five 100win seasons, six AL East titles and four pennants. Weaver was inducted 10 years after he managed his final game with Baltimore at the end of an ill-advised comeback.

he doesn’t get all the hype or anything like that. But he’s right up there with the best of them. “He’s a big-time scorer for us and when we need crucial baskets, that’s who we go to. And he delivered tonight.” For Voight, the victory was special in another way — it made him 2-1 against his own father, Jimmy, the coach of the Wildcats. “It’s a little bittersweet when we play. But you can’t not like the win and be up 2-1,” he said. “And more so than just the father-son thing, it’s 2-1 against (Tularosa) this year. I think that’s going to be a big thing whenever seedings come out.” After dropping back-to-back games in mid-December, including a 47-39 loss to Tularosa on Dec. 18, the Demons have now won nine straight games.

the season that Williams batted .406 for the Boston Red Sox and DiMaggio hit in a record 56 straight games for the New York Yankees. Musial never expressed regret or remorse that he didn’t attract more attention than the cool DiMaggio or prickly Williams. Fact is, Musial was plenty familiar in every place he played.

Few could bring themselves to boo baseball’s nicest superstar, not even the Brooklyn Dodgers crowds that helped give him his nickname, a sign of weary respect for his .359 batting average at Ebbets Field. Many, many years before any sports fans yelled “You’re the man!” at their favorite athletes, Stan was indeed the Man.

Instead, Hager man followed the 10-0 Colt run with a 6-0 run of its own and held off NMMI down the stretch in a 60-56 win. The Colts led 17-12 after the first quarter, but Hagerman responded by winning the second quarter 26-8 that gave the Bobcats a 38-25 lead at the break.

The Colts cut the lead to two with Reyes’ third triple of the quarter, but Hagerman’s Jessie Rodriguez nailed a 3 of his own at the buzzer to make it a 48-42 lead heading into the final quarter. In the final quarter, NMMI had its chances to take the lead but could never get over the hump. The Colts opened the fourth quarter with a runner by T rujillo and a 3 from Reyes to make it a one-point game, but they couldn’t take the lead thanks to a turnover and


A day after top-ranked Rory McIlroy and second-ranked Tiger Woods missed the cut, the fifth-ranked Englishman made his third round look easy with seven birdies. After three-putting on the first for a bogey, Rose had a stretch of six birdies over nine holes — including sinking a 20-footer on No. 5 that gave him back the lead and an approach shot on No. 9 that rolled to 4 feet from the hole for birdie. “Delighted about the day,” said Rose, who has been at the top of the leaderboard all week. “I strengthened my lead, if you like, one to two shots. I guess that’s always good.” Olesen (69) and Donaldson (69) struggled to make putts early but finished with birdies to close the gap. Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee (66) finished with two birdies to move into fourth, three shots behind Rose. Rose cooled down on the back nine, hitting errant drives on Nos. 13 and 17 that led to bogeys and reduced a four-shot lead to two. After Olesen and Donaldson birdied No. 18, Rose responded by nearly chipping in on the same hole and finished with his seventh birdie that gave him a three-round total of 204. “I was a little bit mad about the bogey at No. 17 because I didn’t feel I did an awful lot wrong there,” Rose said. “I’ve been very resilient and bounced back well.” Olesen and Donaldson struggled to make putts early but finished satisfied to be in the mix coming into Sunday. Olesen hit an approach shot from a sandy rough on 18 that landed a few feet from the pin for a birdie. Donaldson matched him with a clutch putt on 18 for his second birdie in four holes. “Very happy with the score, 3-under was great,” Donaldson said. “A little bit scrappy at the start but (I) recovered really well in places.” Playing alongside Rose, the 52ndranked Olesen said he would have to start strong if he was going to overtake the Englishman. “It looks like he’s playing really well but, if I can get some birdies in quickly, I think it can be exciting,” said the 52nd-ranked Dane who is paired with Rose for the final round. “I’m going to try to be aggressive tomorrow.

I thought I was pretty aggressive today but I didn’t hole the putts I needed to.” Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee (66) had seven birdies to move into fourth at 207. Rose’s playing partner Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain Saturday closed to within a shot of the leader after a birdie on the second. But he had trouble hitting the greens after that and fell back. He showed signs of recovery when he sank a 40-foot putt on the seventh but his drive on No. 16 hit a cart path and bounced into the water for a costly bogey. Fernandez-Castano finished four shots back and tied for fifth at 208 with Richie Ramsay (67) of Scotland and David Howell (68) of England.

A floater by NMMI’s Aldo Elias brought the Colts to within 52-50 with 3:46 left, but Hager man’s defense forced three consecutive turnovers to preserve the lead.

Reyes finished with a game-high 20 points for NMMI.

Ravens vs. Patriots: The key matchups B4 Sunday, January 20, 2013

Matchups for the AFC championship game Sunday between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium:

When the Ravens have the ball:

For most of his five pro seasons, RB Ray Rice (27) has been the main man on offense for Baltimore. He still is a key player, leading the team in rushing and scoring 10 TDs. But he’s not the only option, making the Ravens far more threatening with the ball than in previous years. Indeed, when Rice struggled holding onto the ball in the wild-card win over Indianapolis, rookie Bernard Pierce (30) rushed for 103 yards. Rice is a breakaway threat whether running or receiving, and the rapid development of WR Torrey Smith (82) has added a dimension to the passing attack of QB Joe Flacco (5). WR Jacoby Jones (12) caught the 70-yard pass to tie last week’s game at Denver at the end of regulation and provides another deep threat. Flacco also has rekindled his connection with WR Anquan Boldin (81), who has been sensational in the playoffs with 11 receptions for a 19.6-yard average and a TD. Baltimore will try to mix the quick-striking runs of Rice and Pierce with shorter passes to Rice, Boldin and TEs Dennis Pitta (88) and Ed Dickson (84). It’s the most ef fective, balanced offense the Ravens have had under John Harbaugh. Flacco, the only quarterback to win playoff games in each of his first five pro seasons, has gotten exemplary protection from his line of late, led by left guard Marshal Yanda (73). If he gets it again, he’ll surely take shots against New England’s mediocre secondary. Boldin and Smith could give fits to CBs Aqib Talib (31) and Alfonzo Dennard (37), and safeties Devin McCourty (32) and Steve Gregory (28). A DB probably will have to deal with Rice in passing situations because LBs Jerod Mayo (51), Brandon Spikes (55), and Dont’a Hightower (54) are not particularly quick. But they are smart and sound fundamentally. New England’s best defenders are DT Vince Wilfork (75), who requires two blockers, and DE Rob Ninkovich (50), who seemingly always winds up by the ball.

When the Patriots have the ball

Watch out! New England led the NFL with 557 points, often using a no-huddle attack that tires out defenses, while also confusing them. In two games against Houston, which supposedly has one of the league’s top units, the Patriots ran several plays in which



receivers were uncovered. You think Tom Brady (12) took advantage? Baltimore — and anyone else — has no chance against New England if it doesn’t get pressure on Brady. The way the Giants handled the Patriots in their two Super Bowl meetings is the blueprint. That means Ravens pass rushers Terrell Suggs (55), underrated Paul Kruger (99) and Pernell McPhee (90), and even blitzing backs such as star safety Ed Reed (20) and CBs Cary Williams (29) and Corey Graham (24) must get to the two-time league MVP. Or at least force him to get rid of the ball when he doesn’t want to. The onus for protecting Brady falls on a line that has solidified as the season wore on, led by guard Logan Mankins (70). The other big chore is neutralizing Baltimore’s manmountain NT, Haloti Ngata (92), in both the running and passing games. Given time, Brady will pick apart anyone. WR Wes Welker (83) is almost guaranteed to gain 100 yards, as is TE Aaron Hernandez (81). The Patriots will miss outstanding tight end Rob Gronkowski, gone with a broken left arm, so Brady will get others involved, particularly WR Brandon Lloyd (85) deep, and RBs Stevan Ridley (22), Danny Woodhead (39) and Shane Vereen (34) on shorter pat-

terns. Ridley is a 1,000-yard rusher, something very rare for the Patriots, and third-stringer Vereen scored three times against the Texans. Charged with slowing down the run will be Ngata and, of course Ray Lewis (57). The brilliant linebacker’s 17-year career will end when the Ravens’ season concludes, and don’t think Baltimore won’t be stoked to get him to one more Super Bowl. And don’t think the Patriots won’t attack Lewis, who missed 10 games with a tor n right triceps, but has 30 tackles in the two playoff games since returning. Lewis and Brady love the chess match that goes on between them. At its finest, it makes for intriguing football.

Special Teams

Baltimore’s Jones is an All-Pro who led the league in kickoff returns with a 30.1 average and scored twice. He also ran back a punt for a TD. The Ravens were solid on coverages during the season — Harbaugh made his reputation working with special teams — but fell apart against Denver as Trindon Holliday ran back a punt and a kickof f for scores. Rookie Justin Tucker (6) has been a stud, making 30 of 33 field goals, includ-

Roswell Daily Record

ing the winner in double overtime in Denver. P Sam Koch (4) is steady. So is Patriots PK Stephen Gostkowski (3), who hit on 29 of 35 field goals. But New England showed vulnerability on kickoff coverage against Houston. P Zoltan Mesko (14) is inconsistent. Against the Texans, he rocketed several kicks beyond 50 yards, and also had a couple of near-flubs. There are no true gamebreakers on New England’s kick return squads, with coach Bill Belichick emphasizing ball security over everything.


Two of the best in the business. Harbaugh has taken the Ravens to the postseason in all five of his years as a head coach. Not even Vince Lombardi managed that. Harbaugh put his faith in Flacco, has filled out the of fense around him and will make the tough call when things don’t pan out. He fired coordinator Cam Cameron in December when the Ravens were stagnating. He’s been fortunate to have a strong defense during most of those five seasons, and his coaching staff has gotten the D-back on track, for the most part, in the playoffs. Belichick would reach his sixth Super Bowl as a

head coach with a win Sunday, matching Don Shula’s mark. A defensive wizard early on, Belichick recognized what he had in Brady and turned the QB loose. Now, the Patriots are one of the great offensive teams in NFL history. He also could tie Chuck Noll for most Lombardi Trophies if New England takes home its fourth prize in February. Both Harbaugh and Belichick are sons of football coaches, and Harbaugh’s younger brother,

Jim, is San Francisco’s head man.


Simple for both teams: —Patriots haven’t won NFL title since 2004 season and have lost last two Super Bowl trips. They are determined and not a little bit ticked off. —Ravens haven’t won NFL title since 2000 season, have lost two of last four AFC championship games, and know their emotional leader is about to retire.

49ers vs. Falcons: The key matchups SPORTS

Roswell Daily Record

Matchups for the NFC championship game Sunday between the San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome:

When the 49ers have the ball:

A year ago, the idea was to stop RB Frank Gore (21) and force the 49ers to throw. While Atlanta still will key on Gore in the running game with OLBs Sean Weatherspoon (56) and Stephen Nicholas (54), the Falcons are extremely aware of San Francisco’s other running threat: QB Colin Kaepernick (7). The second-year pro comes off a record-setting postseason debut in which he ran for 181 yards and two touchdowns. By the way, he also threw for 263 yards and two more TDs. The Niners will be varied and aggressive with the ball, although they want Gore to get 20 or so carries behind a line led on the left side by All-Pro guard Mike Iupati (77) and tackle Joe Staley (74). If the blockers can control the trenches against DTs Jonathan Babineaux (95), Peria Jerry (94) and Corey Peters (91), it will free up Gore, rookie LaMichael James (23) and Kaepernick to take off. Atlanta wants to keep Kaepernick in a box so he can’t break anything like the sensational 56-yard sprint to the end zone he made against Green Bay. DE John Abraham (55) is the main sacks threat, but he’s nursing a sprained left ankle. If he isn’t effective, the Falcons could be in trouble; they’ll need DE Kroy Bier mann (71), Babineaux and DT Vance Walker (99) to be sharp and disciplined in their rushes. Where the Falcons believe they match up well is with their aggressive secondary against WRs Michael Crabtree (15) and Randy Moss (84) and tight ends Vernon Davis (85) and Delanie Walker (46). Crabtree has blossomed into a star, but Atlanta’s cornerbacks, Asante Samuel (22), Dunta Robinson (23) and

Robert McClain (27), practice against the likes of Roddy White and Julio Jones, so they won’t be awestruck. And safeties Thomas DeCoud (28), William Moore (25) and Chris Hope (24) face Tony Gonzalez, only a Hall of Fame quality tight end. DeCoud had six picks this season and veteran Samuel, who won two Super Bowls with the Patriots, had five. Atlanta must improve its tackling, especially against the running game, and not let Gore, Crabtree, Davis and, especially, Kaepernick get lots of yards after being hit.

When the Falcons have the ball

White (84) and Jones (11) are as dynamic a pair of receivers as any in the NFL. Throw in the wily Gonzalez in likely the final season of a record-setting run and the Falcons can make all the plays in the passing game. That is, if QB Matt Ryan (2) gets enough time to find them against the NFL’s third-ranked defense. DELB Aldon Smith (99) had 19 1/2 sacks and must get extra attention in protection. R yan released the demons of past playoff failures against Seattle, particularly with that scintillating last-minute drive to victory. He’s precise, leading the league in completion percentage and gutsy. He can’t allow himself to get rattled — something R yan should be beyond now — by Aldon Smith, Justin Smith (94), who is playing with an injured triceps, and the best group of linebackers in football: AllPros Patrick Willis (52) and NaVorro Bowman (53), Ahmad Brooks (55) and some solid backups. Ryan will try to go deep to Jones and White, and have Gonzalez patrol the middle along with WR Harry Douglas (83), who made a huge late catch against Seattle. That might be the best matchup of the entire NFC title game:

Atlanta’s pass catchers versus San Francisco’s secondary and LBs. As strong as the Falcons’ secondary might be, the Niners probably are better with CBs Carlos Rogers (22), Terell Brown (25) and Chris Culliver (29), and safeties Dashon Goldson (38), an All-Pro and Donte Whitner (31). For R yan and the Falcons to win that encounter, the line must be stout. Center Todd McClure (62) leads a generally experienced unit on which R T Tyson Clabo (77) is the top blocker. Of special interest will be how RG Peter Konz (66), a rookie, matches up with SF’s interior defensive line of Ray McDonald (91), Ike Sopoaga (90) and Ricky Jean Francois (95). The Niners are difficult to run against — Green Bay didn’t really try — and Falcons RB Michael Turner (33) did not have an outstanding season. But Turner looked very good against the Seahawks with 98 yards on just 14 carries, and even broke away for a 33-yard gain. Jacquizz Rodgers (32) could be a key weapon for Atlanta out of the backfield. His speed and elusiveness might work well on screen passes and reverses. Rodgers gained 64 yards rushing to keep Seattle offbalance.

profile college coach, can be acerbic and sarcastic, but boy can he coach. In both seasons with the 49ers, he’s led them to the title game, revitalizing the offense, making the tough decisions such as keeping Kaepernick behind center. His coordinators, Vic Fangio on defense and Greg Roman on offense, match Harbaugh’s willingness to take risks, and it has worked. Mike Smith learned the coaching trade on defense. He is well-spoken and patient with his explanations, and avoids controversy. The Falcons never had consecutive winning seasons before he arrived in 2008. They’ve not had a losing record under Smith. He brought in Dirk Koetter to oversee the offense and Mike Nolan, a former 49ers head coach, to handle the defense this year. And now the Falcons might be Super Bowl material.

at pressure. Bryant has good range and hit 33 of 38 field goals, including all four from 50 yards and beyond. Punter Matt Bosher (5) is solid, but wasn’t used a lot, kicking only 60 times. Rodgers is the main kick returner and has breakaway capabilities. San Francisco PK David Akers (2) has gone from AllPro in 2011 to slumping this season. But the Niners have stuck with him and he made his only try

against Green Bay; it helps when you are kicking extra points, on which he was 6 for 6 last week. Andy Lee (4) is among the top punters in the NFL. James’ kickoff runback late against New England tur ned that game back around after the Patriots staged a huge rally.


Two opposites man the sideline. Jim Harbaugh, a former pro quarterback and high-



Now that the Falcons finally got that first playoff win — albeit in an excruciating way — much of the pressure of being postseason flops has dissipated. They believe they justified their top seed in the conference and will prove it even more Sunday. San Francisco knows all about excruciating losses, particularly last year’s overtime defeat to the Giants at this point of the postseason. You can bet it’s a motivating factor.

Because we couldn’t do that, we lost 35 years of good times. We now see that neither of us ever lost that strong love we had for each other. She is still the prettiest grandmother I have ever laid eyes on. I never stopped loving her, and we have never been as happy as we are now. OLDER BUT WISER IN CALIFORNIA


DEAR ABBY: During the late 1950s I was married to the prettiest girl I ever set eyes on. “Jenny” and I were in our early 20s and naive. Back then, it wasn’t considered “manly” to talk over anything that might be bothering you, so there was little to no communication. Consequently, we weren’t able to meet each other’s emotional or sexual needs. After 18 years and two sons, we divorced. Thirty-five years later, divine providence intervened and our paths have crossed again. Jenny and I are now talking, laughing,

DEAR OLDER BUT WISER: What you lost so many years ago you and Jenny have gained in life experience. Communication is the key to successful relationships, and I’m pleased that you have achieved it now. Your letter is an important one, and I hope my readers will take it to heart. May you both enjoy many more happy years together. #####


DEAR ABBY: How does one send a thank-you note for a really, really bad “regift”? This Christmas I received a battered box with old, wrinkled, ripped tissue paper thrown in with a couple of items that appeared to be part of another gift. It looked like a food gift basket had been divided and piecemealed out to make more gifts. It is hurtful and insulting to be on the receiving end of something that’s not even “giftworthy.” I say, why bother at all. Please advise. ANONY-MISS OUT WEST

DEAR ANONY-MISS: The person may have felt obligated to give you something and been strapped for money for gifts. A gracious way to respond would be to thank the individual for thinking of you at such a meaningful time as Christmas. You do not have to lie and say the gift was “fabulous.” #####

DEAR ABBY: I work in an office with a

woman who is a grandmother. She’s very sweet but tends to get sick several times a year. As the mother of younger children, I have learned the “new school rules” on illness, like coughing or sneezing into your arm instead of your hand in an effort not to spread germs. It seems my co-worker never got that memo, and I can’t think of a tactful way to spread the message. Because cold and flu season is here, could you remind all your readers that this is a good preventative measure to reduce the spread of germs. Thanks! TRYING TO STAY HEALTHY IN NEW JERSEY DEAR TRYING: Consider it done. However, a tactful way to get the word out would be to ask your boss or your supervisor to send a memo around the office — and provide anti-bacterial wipes so that shared equipment and door and cabinet knobs can be sanitized after a sick employee uses them.

Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about party hosts offering only alcoholic beverages: “I would like to sound off about party hosts who do not provide nonalcoholic beverage options for their guests. There are many reasons why a person may not want to drink (e.g., choice, medication, pregnancy, driving). It would be wonderful to not be greeted with a “deer in the headlights” look when you ask if there’s anything besides beer or wine and then being handed a cup and shown to the tapwater faucet.

Dear Readers: A reader recently wrote about her husband, who had suffered a brain injury. She was having trouble keeping important papers and cleaning products someplace safe. Several of you shared your suggestions: • Kathy in Southern California said: “She should install a lock on one of her cupboard doors and keep the key to herself. It’s inexpensive and easy to do.” • A reader in Nebraska said, “She could find a cheap, lockable dresser, desk or any piece of furniture large enough to store her items at a thrift store.” • Sherry from Alabama said: “Lots of people work out of their car. Get an inexpensive cooler and put it in the trunk of your car, and keep personal papers in that. For cleaning products, clean out containers, put them back in the cabinet and put the actual products out of sight. Tell him, ‘We’re out,’ and you’re going to get more the next time you go to the store.” Hope all this advice helps. Keep the hints coming! I’d love to print more. Heloise

Wild West Auctions turns 10, celebrates with clients Roswell Daily Record


On Friday, if you place a bid on items at Wild West Auctions, you're not just purchasing in a quality collectible but taking part in a celebration. According to owner and founder Judy Smith, "this is our 10-year and we wanted to celebrate a little more than we usually do." Part of that celebration is hosting a two-day auction Friday and Saturday instead of just their usual Saturday auction. Wild West Auctions, 205 E. Seventh

St., will also have refreshments available. The auction will include collectibles, glassware, coins, silver, furniture artwork, and tons of jewelry. Smith said she is sure anyone that attends will be able to find something that appeals to his or her taste, as Wild West Auctions has close to 400 items to sell. Wild West Auctions actually got its start on a whim. Smith began as an estate saleswoman a decade ago. She encountered one particular client who decided to not go with her, but sell their items to the auction instead. With her mood dampened, she

came home and told her husband, Lester, what had happened. She then suggested that he go to auctioneer school just to see what it was all about. He went to Texas that summer out of curiosity, and returned eager to get in to the auction business. "He came back very excited and enthused," Smith said. "And with his new abilities, he thought he could do this." From there they went about acquiring their current property, and after years of renovating an intermittent auction sales, they finally made auctioneering their full-time job. At the time Wild West Auctions

Sunday, January 20, 2013

was founded, Smith said there were two or three auctioneers in town. Today, she's pleased to say they've outlasted them all and have become one of the premiere auction facilities in southeast New Mexico and have shipped items all over the country. Today, the business is going to include 12 employees and two auctioneers. They do live auctions either at Wild West Auctions, or at the location of the seller. They also provide tag to sales services where they identify valuable items, sort the merchandise and host an auction. They even have a referral program where if someone you referred hires them to

take the job, the person that made the referral receives 100 dollars. The goal for the future is to conquer digital territory. Wild West Auctions will soon be available online and people can place bids on items from the comfort of home.

A preview for Friday's auction will he held at 4 p.m., with the actual auction beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday's preview will be at 8 a.m. and the actual auction will take place at 10 a.m.

Feds follow business in backing Detroit rail line CVE DETROIT (AP) — The federal government committed $25 million Friday to build a streetcar line through the heart of Detroit, putting in place the last piece of a plan bringing light rail to one of the few urban centers still without it. The rest of the $140 million tab for the 3.3-mile streetcar line along Woodward Avenue will be funded by a public-private partnership with sizable donations coming from companies whose workers are commuting from revitalized neighborhoods to of fices downtown. It remains unclear, however, whether the cash-strapped city will ever be able to extend the line into the poorest neighborhoods where better mass transportation is desperately needed. Leaders have long said public transportation must improve for Detroit to grow. Light rail along Woodward, the primary business and commercial corridor, has been discussed for years, but hasn’t been a priority in a city struggling with debt, violence and population loss. Electric trolleys that once shuttled Detroiters around the city were torn up decades ago and replaced by buses as the Motor City bet on roads, not rails. There have been 24 failed attempts over the past 40 years to develop a modern public transit system in Detroit, Gov. Rick Snyder noted at a morning news conference. “We’re the only place that didn’t have this,” he said. Detroit’s public transportation has largely been limited in recent decades to a problem-plagued pub-

Detroit could be the first U.S. city to pay for a major mass transit project in private dollars, although that has happened overseas in places like Tokyo, said Robert Puentes, a transportation expert with the Brookings Institution. Detroit also has precedent in the privately owned Ambassador Bridge, which links Detroit and Windsor, Canada. Those using it pay a toll.

lic bus system and the People Mover elevated rail, which many see as a symbol of the city’s financial woes and mismanagement. The People Mover was designed to take suburban residents coming into the city on a light rail line to spots downtown. But the light rail line was canceled during the Reagan Administration. The stand-alone People Mover opened in 1987, but without connecting train service, it had limited use and was widely seen as a waste of money. Under its current configuration, it makes 13 stops in a 2.9-mile loop of downtown. While the bus system covers a wider area, residents complain of frequent breakdowns that leave them waiting an hour or more to be picked up, and Mayor Dave Bing, facing a deep budget deficit, has eliminated some sparsely

used routes and cut back on hours of service along others. U.S. T ransportation Secretary Ray LaHood elicited laughs Friday when he announced that it was his 13th visit to Detroit. “Lucky 13,” he said, but part of the reason the transit chief has visited so frequently and for so long without releasing any money was that he needed assurances that the state and city could uphold their end of the bargain. That came in part last year, when the Michigan Legislature approved a long-sought regional transit authority for the Detroit area that will create a rapid-transit bus system and possibly expand the M-1 line north to Pontiac and west to Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The initial line will run from downtown to an area a few miles north

that includes Wayne State University, the Detroit Institute of Arts and other cultural and educational institutions. But the key component to making the M-1 line a reality was a commitment from Penske Automotive Group chief Roger Penske, Quicken Loans founder and chairman Dan Gilbert and other leaders from Detroit’s business and nonprofit communities to raise more than $100 million to finish the project. “We need to reach out into the neighborhoods to make the city better,” Penske said Friday. “But we need to have a strong core, and this project will do this. This is going to revitalize economic development along this corridor. People are going to want to move their shops here, live here and it’s going to bring jobs. And that’s the most important thing. We need jobs.”

Construction on the M-1 Rail line could begin later this year, with streetcar service starting in the fall of 2015. The route will include 11 stations and additional curb-side stops. A one-way trip would take about 15 minutes, depending on the time of day.

One remaining concern is that the M-1 line will serve only select travelers in Detroit, a sprawling city where many residents need public transportation.

U.S. Rep. Gary Peters said he recently rode city buses to talk to residents about their experiences and came away horrified by the lengths to which some riders go to get to work, school or elsewhere. He called it “a moral issue,” and one that must be addressed.

To that end, LaHood promised an additional $6.5 million in federal funds to help improve city bus service and develop a rapid-transit bus network between downtown, the suburbs and key destinations in the region.

Govt again delays Obama administration updates, tightens medical privacy rules ‘frack’ rule WASHINGTON (AP) — Those medical privacy rules you run into at hospitals, pharmacies and in your own doctor’s office are getting an update. Regulations unveiled this week by the Obama administration create new information rights that should make life easier for consumers. They also tighten restrictions on medical service providers trying to use patient information for marketing, and they greatly expand the list of businesses that can be punished for unauthorized disclosures. On the privacy front, doctors will now have to get prior approval

from patients to pitch new medications or medical devices if those pitches are being paid for by a drug company or manufacturer. For example, sometimes a pharmaceutical company will pay doctors to send all their heart patients a letter about a new medication. It may not be readily apparent to the patient that the drug company is compensating the doctor for sending the update. The rules also create new rights for consumers. For instance, you should find it much easier to get your medical records electronically. “They won’t be able to default

to, ‘Sorry, we can’t send this to your home (computer) system; we have to give you a paper copy,”’ said Susan McAndrew, a government lawyer who oversaw the regulations at the Health and Human Services Department. Another welcome change: with your permission, your doctor can share your children’s immunization records directly with a school. That simple tweak to existing rules will save parents from having to shuttle forms back and forth. And, if you pay cash for a medical service, you can tell the doctor not to share information with your

insurer. The sensitivity sometimes arises with people paying out-ofpocket for mental health counseling, McAndrew said.

ROSWELL—Roswell Comfort Keepers® of Roswell, Artesia, and Carlsbad is pleased to share news of national recognition provided by Entrepreneur Magazine’s Annual Franchise 500© rankings for 2013. The magazine recently recognized Comfort Keepers as the #1 franchise within the senior care category as well as #59 among the top 500 franchises. Cindy Lewis, owner of Comfort Keepers of the Comfort Keepers franchises in Roswell, Artesia and Carlsbad, is thrilled about this accomplishment, indicating, “This kind of recognition among all franchises, nationally, is rare. It’s something all of us at our office,

as well as the 700+ locations around the world, can be proud of. However, Cindy Lewis is equally quick to add, “Ultimately, it is what we do each and every day that matters most: we help seniors to live independently within the comfort of their own homes, wherever home may be!” Entrepreneur’s 34th Annual Franchise 500 ranking reveals the impact of the newest trends and the industries poised for growth. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of the franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability,

growth rate and size of the system. According to Entrepreneur, the Franchise 500 shows that many of the most competitive companies are those that go after a specific demographic. Among the top growing demographic categories, nationally, is senior care. The continued growth of the senior population bodes well for franchise organizations like Comfort Keepers. For more information about the Comfort Keepers franchise offering, visit or call 800-387-2415. About Comfort Keepers Comfort Keepers is a leading franchise network in the in-home

care market for seniors and other adults. Since its founding in 1998, the company has grown to more than 700 franchised locations around the world by staying true to the founders' goal of providing in-home care services that allow clients the opportunity to age in place. In August of 2009, the brand was strengthened even further by the purchase of the franchisor, CK Franchising, Inc., by Sodexo, one of the world's leading food and facilities management services companies and the global leader in the health care and seniors markets.

The onus of complying with the new rules will fall mainly on the health care industry and contractors. One of the most notable changes is that companies that provide support services to doctors and hospitals will now face steep penalties for unauthorized disclosures of patient information. The rules take effect at the end of September, after a period for health care service providers to learn the new requirements.

Comfort Keepers recognized as top in its category in business magazine

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Interior Department is again delaying a proposed rule that would require companies drilling for oil and natural gas on federal lands to publicly disclose chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing operations.

The Obama administration first proposed a “fracking” rule last May, with a final rule expected by the end of the year. Officials later revised the timeline to early 2013. On Friday, the department pushed the deadline back again, announcing plans for a second draft version by the end of March, with publication of a final rule not expected until late 2013.

Interior Department spokesman Blake Androff said the administration is committed to responsible expansion of domestic oil and gas production, but said it is important that the public have confidence that proper environmental protections are in place.

BORN TODAY Vocalist Ronald Townson (1933), comedian Bill Maher (1956), actor DeForest Kelley (1920)

‘Ripper Street’ stars Macfadyen, 1880s London PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Matthew Macfadyen is perfectly presentable in jeans and a crewneck sweater that coordinates nicely with the blue of his eyes. But the look is far from the elegant attire he wore as Mr. Darcy opposite Keira Knightley’s Elizabeth in the 2005 film “Pride & Prejudice.” And his posture is just as casual, which he acknowledges might offend the aristocratic character’s diehard fans. “You’re slouching! What are you doing? Stand up straight, man!” Macfadyen says, teasing himself. He looks back fondly on what he calls the “iconic” role drawn from Jane Austen’s novel. But the British actor who’s also known to audiences for his part as an intelligence officer in the series “MI-5” (”Spooks” in the U.K.) welcomes the chance to switch gears. “I, as most actors, want to mix it up and do dif ferent things. Otherwise it gets boring and tiresome, not only for yourself but for everyone else seeing you do the same kind of thing,” he said. “The joy of being an actor is to play different parts, do something different.” Macfadyen’s latest chance for diversity comes in “Ripper Street,” an 1880s police drama set on the gritty and untamed streets of London’s East End around the period that serial killer Jack the Ripper terrorized the area. The series, starring Macfadyen as Detective Inspector Edmund Reid, debuts Saturday (9 p.m. EST) on BBC America after starting its British run this

month. BBC America is home to another rough-and-tumble, 18th-century police drama, “Copper,” set in 1860s New York City and the channel’s first original scripted series. The mysterious and brutal Jack the Ripper has been recycled throughout pop culture in films including 1979’s “T ime After Time” and 2001’s “From Hell” with Johnny Depp. But series creator Richard Warlow said the killer is a backdrop and invisible character for “Ripper Street.”

“What we wanted to do really was to tell stories about the streets down which he walked and committed his crimes in the wake of those terrible murders,” Warlow said, “and how it affected the community and, most importantly, the police that tried and failed to catch him.” Each episode will include what he called a “stand-alone crime” as well as pull at the thread of Reid’s life, including those surrounding him at work and at home. Macfadyen said he was reluc-

tant to take on another series after two plus-seasons on “MI-5” because of TV’s demanding production schedules. Then the “Ripper Street” pilot script came his way last year. “I thought the Jack the Ripper thing had been done before ... but I loved it. The thing that was most attractive was the language and the way he (Warlow) constructs the sentences ... they feel very muscular without feeling sort of wanky and silly. ... They feel very muscular.” There is an antiquated elo-

quence to the dialogue that contrasts with the drama’s mean streets and violent sexuality of the first case tackled by Reid and his cohorts, police Sgt. Bennet Drake (Jerome Flynn, “Game of Thrones”) and American forensics whiz Capt. Homer Jackson (Adam Rothenberg, “The Ex List”). Macfadyen said he was drawn to his character’s modern sensibility. Reid isn’t “a sort of stock detective character. He’s a very free thinking, forward-looking kind of man, not a sort of jaded ‘seen it all’ copper. So I was intrigued by that,” he said. The detective’s viewpoint is so expansive that he can’t resist admiring the potential of an early version of a motion picture camera — even when he’s just thwarted its use in making a 19th-century snuff film. The scene had slipped Macfadyen’s mind when he watched the episode at home in London and his wife, actress Keeley Hawes (”Upstairs Downstairs”), suddenly took alarmed note of what was unfolding on the screen. “My 12-year-old stepson was watching and we said, ‘OK, bedtime!’” said Macfadyen, who has two children with Hawes. But he considers the show “punchy and brave” for a mature audience and would like to see it go at least another season, in part for selfish reasons. “Jerome, Adam and I get on so well, very happily. I know actors always say they love each other,” he said, then smiled. “That’s not always the case.”

Disney CEO Bob Iger sees 2012 pay rise to $37.1M

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney CEO Bob Iger’s pay package got an 18 percent boost last year to $37.1 million as the company posted record revenue, net income and earnings per share. The Walt Disney Co. also cited Iger’s leadership in the $4.06 billion acquisition of “Star Wars” creator Lucasfilm, along with the launch of theme park additions, cruise ships and the expansion of the Disney Channel overseas. Iger, 61, saw the biggest jump in pay from the value of new stock option awards,

which hit $7.8 million in 2012, up from $4.8 million in 2011, according to a regulatory filing Friday. Stock award grants valued at $9.5 million were above the $8.1 million he received a year earlier. He also received incentive pay of $16.5 million, up from $15.5 million, while his salary rose to $2.5 million from $2 million. Other compensation for security and personal air travel came to $800,700, down from $962,932 a year earlier. The company as a whole

grew revenue 3 percent to $42.3 billion for the fiscal year through September. Net income rose 18 percent to $5.7 billion, while earnings per share grew 24 percent to $3.13. Among other ways of tracking the company’s success, Disney said Iger helped deliver outstanding total shareholder return, which measures both stock-price gains and dividends. On that measure, the company provided a 76 percent gain to shareholders, compared to a 67 percent gain by its media

industry peers and a 30 percent return for companies in the S&P 500. In the fiscal year through Sept. 29, shares of The Walt Disney Co. rose 73 percent. Iger’s contract runs through the end of June 2016, although he’ll transition out of the CEO role in March 2015. He also has sat on the board of Apple Inc. since November 2011. The AP formula considers salary, bonuses, perks, stock and options awarded

to the executive during the year, but not changes in the present value of pension benefits. That makes the AP total slightly different in most cases from the total reported by companies to the Securities and Exchange Commission. The value that a company assigned to an executive’s stock and option awards for 2012 was the present value of what the company expected the awards to be

worth to the executive over time. Companies use one of several formulas to calculate that value. However, the number is just an estimate, and what an executive ultimately receives will depend on the performance of the company’s stock in the years after the awards are granted. Most stock compensation programs require an executive to wait a specified amount of time to receive shares or exercise options.

Iran courts restart of nuke talks, but snubs UN

Israeli PM faces tough choice if he’s re-elected AP Photo

A worker hangs a huge poster with an image of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu overlooking the Ayalon freeway in Tel Aviv, Israel, Thursday.

JERUSALEM (AP) — After a lackluster three-month campaign, few doubt that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on his way to re-election. But the makeup of Netanyahu’s next government remains a mystery. If re-elected on Tuesday, Netanyahu will face a critical decision that will define his term. He can form a majority coalition with the hard-line and religious parties he often calls his natural partners — or reach across the aisle and try to bring centrist parties into a broaderbased government that might be more amenable to pursuing peace and ending, at least partly, the occupation of the West Bank and other territories. His decision will have deep implications. A narrow coalition of parties that oppose concessions to the Palestinians, while the easier option, would mean continued deadlock in Mideast peace efforts and increased confrontation with the international community, including Israel’s key ally, the United States. A broad coalition could force Netanyahu to give powerful Cabinet posts to more moderate figures as the price of their support, and would likely draw fierce

opposition from within his own Likud Party. In either case, the odds for a breakthrough in peace talks appear faint at best, because no Netanyahu-led coalition is likely to offer the Palestinians better peace terms than those they already have received and either rejected or ignored under previous governments. Netanyahu’s own positions fall far short of anything acceptable to the Palestinians. Likud officials refuse to say which way they are leaning. Netanyahu’s campaign chairman, Cabinet Minister Gideon Saar, said Thursday that the party hasn’t even started thinking about building the coalition. “This would send the wrong message that we’ve already won,” Saar told an interviewer on Channel 2 TV. He said the party is focused on capturing as many seats in Israel’s fragmented Knesset, or parliament, as possible. Under Israel’s system, parties win a number of seats based on the percentage of votes they receive. No party has ever won an outright majority in the 120seat parliament. The leader of the party with the best chance of cobbling together a majority is tapped as

It is the tale of Phila, one of a growing number of rhinoceroses that survive horrific injuries during attempts by poachers to hack off their horns. With her horns still intact, Phila is a rare survivor of a surge in rhino killings in South Africa, home to most of the world’s rhinos. In a new push, veterinarians are racing to learn more about rhino anatomy so they can swiftly treat survivors of attacks by poachers whose arsenal includes assault rifles and drug-tipped darts. The obstacles are funding, a dearth of past research and the logistics of helping fearsome-looking behemoths that are easily traumatized if moved from their habitat. There are “suddenly a lot of live rhinos needing medical attention,” said Dr. Katja Koeppel, senior veterinarian at the Johannesburg Zoo, where Phila spent two years before her surreptitious return to a game reserve in November. She cautioned that treatments for rhinos are inexact: “We know very little about rhinos. We treat them as a large horse.” The South African government says a record 668 rhinos were killed in the

country in 2012, an increase of nearly 50 percent over the previous year. Veterinarians say there are no reliable statistics for the number of rhinos injured by poachers, partly because some game reserve owners prefer to keep quiet for fear other criminals will flock to any location known to harbor rhino. Those involved in the protection of rhinos are skittish, and suspicion that people are colluding with poachers is plentiful. One of Phila's guardians refused to talk to The Associated Press on the telephone, saying: "I don't know who you are." Dr. Georgina Cole, a veterinarian at the Johannesburg Zoo, said she knew of 10 rhinos that survived poaching attacks in South Africa in the past year, and she believes the unreported number is much higher. Dr. Johan Marais, an equine and wildlife surgeon at the University of Pretoria, said a "conservative" estimate of rhino survivors is 40 to 60 a year. Marais predicted: "As the amount of poaching goes up, we'll probably get more and more of these survivors." Marais said he recently visited a rhino that still had bullet pieces in its flesh from a shooting a year ago. The rhino suffered lingering wound infections. While a few lucky rhinos elude their shooters, others survive a grislier fate: being shot with a tranquilizer dart and having their horns hurriedly carved out of their faces while they are unconscious.

prime minister and gets the first chance to form a coalition. All the polls show that Netanyahu’s Likud Party — in alliance with the more nationalist Israel Beitenu party — will win more than a quarter of the seats, and together with other rightist and religious parties should command at least a narrow overall majority. Although that can still change, the operating assumption in Israel is that Netanyahu will indeed emerge with a majority. In part, this is because the opposition center -left bloc of parties has failed to rally behind a single dominant leader. The conflict with the Palestinians and the fate of occupied territories, hotly debated in Israel for decades, has barely registered as a campaign issue. Many left-leaning parties — including the Labor Party, which traditionally has led the bloc — have focused on internal economic issues or stressed the personalities of their leaders. This reflects the sense that Israelis have given up hopes of reaching a peace deal with the Palestinians, and stressing other issues is the best way of attracting support.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran has floated specific dates for reopening talks with the U.S. and other world powers about its nuclear program. At the same time, Tehran has left U.N. nuclear inspectors empty-handed when it comes to addressing Western suspicions that it’s conducting tests related to nuclear weapons. Iran’s split personality over creating space for possible nuclear concessions has complicated calculations by Washington and allies on whether to head back into negotiations more than six months after the last round ended in stalemate. But it also offers insight into Tehran’s strategy as Western sanctions press harder on the economy, experts say. Iranian leaders know the only route to ease the economic pressures — and possibly undercut threats of military action by Israel — is through potential dealmaking with six world powers — the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council plus Germany. Making grand gestures to the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, would likely bring praise from the West, but it is unlikely to roll back sanctions, which have so far reduced Iran’s critical oil exports by 45 percent. “Tehran ... sees any cooperation with the IAEA as a potential bargaining chip that is better reserved for the talks that really matter,” said Suzanne Maloney, an Iranian affairs expert at the Brookings Institution in Washington. “The Iranians want a payout and the IAEA cannot deliver that.” Iran has proposed restarting talks as early as next month. But while Iran’s desire to revive dialogue with the world powers suggests an acknowledgment that the sanctions have taken a bite out of its economy, there still are no clear signals on whether it means a greater willingness to make concessions. Three rounds of talks last year made no headway on the West’s main demand: That Iran halt its highest-level uranium enrichment. Washington and others worry this level of nuclear fuel, at 20 percent enrichment, could be turned into warheadgrade material much faster than the 3.5 percent enriched uranium needed for Iran’s lone energy-producing reactor. Iran insists it does not seek nuclear arms — repeatedly citing a 2005 edict by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that called atomic weapons a violation of Islamic tenets — and says it only wants reactors for electricity and medical research. For Iranian negotiators, the only workable compromise is seen as part of a reciprocal pact: The easing of Western

sanctions in return for promises to trim uranium enrichment. So far, however, the U.S. and its allies have given no indication of favoring such a deal. Instead, they have moved to further tighten the economic squeeze and isolate Iran. Iranian envoys appear to favor getting the dialogue restarted to at least keep channels open with Washington. That could also gain support from the Obama administration, which favors diplomatic efforts to end the nuclear standoff. Critics, including Israel’s Prime Benjamin Netanyahu, contend Iran is only seeking to drag out negotiations while it expands its stockpile of enriched uranium. “Iran’s leaders are adopting a grandbargain strategy,” said Mehrzad Boroujerdi, a Syracuse University professor who follows Iranian affairs. “They don’t want to get bogged down with the IAEA and see the only way to get what they want — meaning getting some sanctions off their back — is through the world power talks.” But Iran’s cold shoulder to U.N. envoys could further weaken Western interest in reopening talks, leading to another dead end. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Friday that the U.S. was disappointed that “once again” Iran and the IAEA failed to agree on allowing inspectors to visit a military site, known as Parchin, where the U.N. agency suspects Iran might have carried out nuclear weapon trigger tests. The agency has visited Parchin twice — the last time in 2005. But at the time, it did not have access to satellite imagery and new intelligence presumably supplied by the United States, Israel and other IAEA member states. Iran says it wants assurances from the IAEA that the Parchin file will be closed for good if it allows another tour of Parchin and nothing is detected. Herman Nackaerts, who headed the IAEA team, said the two sides would meet again on Feb. 12 in the Iranian capital. That’s after Iran’s proposed timeframe to restart talks with the world powers talks. The official IRNA news agency reported that envoys were working on an early February resumption. There has been no official response from Washington or the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, but reopening talks that quickly appears difficult without even an agreement on where they would be held. Iranian authorities, meantime, have been increasingly candid about the blows from sanctions, including plans for an austerity budget in March that will include new and highly unpopular taxes.

She was born competent, intelligent, and with a desire to help animals; but Katie Shanor, 17, still needed an extra impetus to get on the path to her life calling. Luckily for Shanor, the mentorship and internship program of the Roswell Independent School District has helped her trace a possible path between her present as a senior at Goddard High, and her future as a successful veterinarian. It is now up to Shanor to follow her goal through. She has already been accepted in to the veterinary medicine program at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, and plans to attend in the fall. “I’ve always loved animals, so I thought … that was something I would like to do,” Shanor said of her career choice. It all started last semester, when the RISD program assigned Shanor a mentor; Michael Alber DVM, a veterinarian with College Garden Animal Hospital. Shanor set out to complete the 55 hours of voluntary work the mentorship assignment requires; however, she eventually completed 110 hours of work—the amount required to complete the internship aspect of the program. “I ended up loving it,” Shanor said of the opportunity. “I just liked the way you could interact with animals and people. I liked every moment of it. … I really enjoyed my mentor.” Shanor thanked Alber, and all those involved with the RISD program. Mentorship Coordinator for the RISD Mary Lou Trujillo also expressed gratitude for the local business professionals who share their expertise with the teenagers in the program; becoming their friend, teacher, guide, adviser and role model all wrapped up into one. “The mentors teach (the students) something that educators can’t teach them,” Trujillo said. Using Shanor’s experience as an example, Trujillo said a student may not learn in school how to operate on an animal. Trujillo mentioned another student in the program who got to witness a cesarean section. “She said it was the best experience of (her) life,” Trujillo said of the student’s excited reaction. “How could we do that in a classroom?” Counted as a “gifted” course, the program is for students who are doing well academically—maintaining a 3.0 GPA or above, Trujillo said. “These are our college-bound students (who) want to explore … their future career,” Trujillo said. Interested students must fill out and return a packet, which includes recommendations from two teachers as well as their career choice and mentor preference. The student even undergoes an interview process to see if he or she would be a right fit, not only for the program but also for a particular mentor. If everything else checks out, Trujillo does her best to match the student with his or her first mentor preference. Open to high school juniors and seniors, the mentorship/internship program typically has 15-20 students from both Roswell High and Goddard High, Trujillo said. She compiled a list of 16 students from both high schools completing their internship/mentorship assignments for the fall 2012 semester. The teens have been mentored in a variety of fields, from engineering (with the New Mexico Department of Transportation) to wildlife biology (with the Bureau of Land Management); from dental hygiene (with KidsKare) to social work/counseling (with La Familia Counseling Services). The mentorship/internship program counts as a school elective. As such, participation in the program earns the student .5 credits. It takes initiative and dependability to set up and maintain a work schedule that is convenient for both mentor and student, Trujillo said. The mentorship is completed in 55 hours of hands-on, heavily supervised and monitored work; doubled, it may become a 110-hour internship. “Even though they don’t get paid, (students) still have a lot of responsibility,” she said. “You have to be pretty dedicated.” The mentorship/internship program also entails frequent informational meetings that involve such topics as work ethic, proper work attire, and confidentiality, to name a few. At the end of each semester, students in the program complete and present a project of their experience in a reallife, hands-on setting of their chosen career. The time requirement may be crushing for a junior—the third year of high school often implies a heavy schedule, Trujillo said. It is mostly seniors, she said, who get involved with the program. One exception to this generality is named Jakob Fink. A junior at Goddard High, Fink was in the mentorship program last semester. Interested in both journalism and sports, Fink was matched with his first choice for a mentor when he got to work side-by-side with the Roswell Daily Record’s Sports Editor, Kevin J. Keller, and Assistant Sports Editor Lawrence Foster. During his mentorship, Fink got to cover local sports games and learned about newspaper design and layout. “I learned a lot,” Fink said of the experience. “I thank them (Keller and Foster) for that.” For now, Fink has set aside the mentorship program to make time to play baseball. He is currently unsure as to which college or university he will attend, but said he is considering Rice University in Houston. He may continue with journalism, he said, or study science. Still, Fink said it would be awesome to work at the RDR where he can intertwine his love for writing and sports. And, according to Trujillo, Fink’s idea may not be so farfetched. Trujillo said that some mentors have hired their former students for part-time work. “(The program) opens a lot of doors for the student,” Trujillo said. A mentorship coordinator for five years, Trujillo has been at her position long enough to see what she referred to as the “fruits of it all;” former high school students who are now completing college degree requirements and starting their career. “I love the program,” Trujillo said. “I wish more kids would have the opportunity to work with a professional.” For more information about the RISD’s mentorship and internship program, call Mary Lou Trujillo at 637-3280.

Returning vet may need professional intervention

Q: We have a friend who just returned home from Afghanistan. He’s finding it very hard to transition to life at home again. How can we help him? Jim: It can be incredibly difficult for service members to transition from deployment back to the home front. Your concern for his well-being is admirable. Author Erin Prater has written extensively about the challenges service members face after deployment. According to her, normal reactions during the first six to eight weeks after a soldier’s retur n can include irregular sleeping patterns, anger, appetite and weight change, susceptibility to illness, frustration, fatigue, restlessness, hypervigilance, insecurity, anxiety, crying spells, memory lapses, inability to trust, flashbacks and more. Prater suggests that service members’ spouses can help them through this process by encouraging them to get ample healthy

food, rest and exercise, find time for hobbies, avoid the use of illegal substances or excessive alcohol, spend time with friends and family, and if necessary, seek professional help. You didn’t mention whether your friend is married, but to the extent you’re able, you can play a role in helping him readjust, too. Be willing to spend time with him in a quiet setting, without pressuring him to talk about his experiences unless it is his desire to do so. Yet give him openings and per mission to do so if he wishes. Talking things out can be very helpful. Finally, Prater says that if these symptoms extend beyond eight weeks, or if they’re accompanied by suicidal thoughts, violent behavior and so on, medical and psychiatric intervention may be necessary. Watch for the warning signs, and be willing to come alongside your friend in the same way you would reach out to any-



one who has experienced trauma. Q: My wife and I have been married for 30 years, but we are struggling. We’ve been under a lot of stress over the last year due to finances, and I’ve been unable to find a job. What can I do to show her that I love her and want to make our marriage work? I feel like she has given up hope in our relationship and situation. Dr. Greg Smalley, executive director of marriage and family formation: I’m sorry to learn of your predicament. As you’ve discovered, unemployment can present formidable challenges to your

Roswell Daily Record

marriage. When it comes to finding gainful employment, it may be time for drastic measures. Even if you find a job that seems menial and unfulfilling, it might be necessary to take it for the time being. Also, consider the possibility of relocating. If you have to move, you can look at it as a fresh start and an opportunity for you and your wife to nurture your relationship away from the demands of family and friends. Indeed, the damage to your marital relationship is of even more pressing concern than your unemployment. You may not feel like it, but go out of your way to have fun and keep things “light”—it’s crucial to keep up your morale while waiting for circumstances to improve. A cheerful, positive attitude will go a long way in a situation like this. Also, although you may not feel like your finances can handle it right now, I urge you and your

wife to seek counseling. You can start with a free consultation with a member of our counseling team here at Focus on the Family, who will also be able to refer you to a qualified professional in your area. Losing a job is hard, but don’t let it rob you of the gift of your marriage. If you and your wife are to weather this storm, you need to be on the same team.

Beyond courtesy, getting out of ambulances’ way is the law Roswell Daily Record

STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION “Move to your right, sir. No, no, your other right!” I am always a little surprised when I see an emergency vehicle approaching, siren sounding and lights flashing, and there’s someone in a car or truck who just keeps on driving—moving on down the road and not a clue! Much of the time, I’m sure the driver simply has his mind somewhere else. When he or she recognizes the situation, they usually move quickly to get out of the way. Sometimes it appears that drivers either do not know what they should do or they do not understand

that they must do it under the law. The New Mexico Uniform Traffic Ordinance specifies that when an authorized emergency vehicle is approaching, other vehicles shall yield the right of way and shall immediately drive to a position parallel to and

Cheer Camp at GHS

as close as possible to the right-hand edge or the curb of the roadway. It is important that drivers do not interfere with any intersections or off-ramps when they stop. Also, vehicles are not to move onto or stop on the shoulder of the roadway because emergency vehicles may be travelling on it. So here’s the way it should work. You are driving north on Main Street, and you hear a siren somewhere behind your car. In a few seconds, you see flashing lights approaching you from the south, and you recognize a fire engine coming your way. Immediately, you should move to the right and stop your car. Of course, it is

important to use caution when stopping, because other drivers may not be aware of or are already reacting to the approaching emergency vehicle. You should look on all sides of your vehicle, signal your intentions to pull over well in advance and brake gradually to bring your vehicle to a complete stop. Once all the emergency vehicles have passed, you can make sure the way is clear and you can merge back in to traffic. Even if your vehicle is in the other lane and travelling in the opposite direction from the approaching emergency vehicle, the same rules apply. You should move to the right and stop your vehicle. Keep

in mind that you do not know when the emergency driver is going to turn, nor do you know what he will have to do in order to avoid other traffic. I have seen them cross over medians from lane to lane because it was necessary to avoid traffic. Yielding to emergency vehicles is required under state and even federal law, but in my view, it is also a matter of courtesy. An emergency vehicle driver should not have to guess what you are doing! It should be clear to him. You must remember that stopping or maneuvering large vehicles such as fire trucks is significantly more difficult than steering your car. Precious time lost getting to the

scene may mean the difference between life and death! Realizing that it is a different topic altogether, let me give credit to those of you who do pull off to the right and stop when passing a funeral procession. While it is not required by law, that simple act of courtesy is an appropriate thing to do and it gives due respect to the deceased and to their families and friends. Well done!

Filmmaker Dabis casts fresh Sundance face: herself

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Filmmaker Cherien Dabis h a s in t r o d uce d a f r e s h new actor to crowds at the Sundance Film Festival: herself. In her latest trip to the independent-cinema sh o wc as e, th e c om i c drama “May in the Summ e r, ” w r it er - d i r e c t o r Dabis put herself through a rigorous casting process before deciding she was the right person for the title role. Dabis had been repeated l y a sk ed i f s he e v er t h o u g h t ab ou t a c t i n g while she was promoting her earlier drama “Amreeka,” which premiered at Sundance in 2009. Unable to find just the right woman, Dabis cast herself after a long audition process, putting herself on tape several times and getting encouraging r es p o n se s f r o m f r i e n d s and colleagues. “I thought, I’m still not convinced, because I keep

showing it to people who k n o w m e , a n d th e y ’ r e probably just flattering me,” Dabis said. “I just want to send it to someone in the industry who h a s no i d e a w h o I a m , d o e sn ’ t k n o w m y b a ckground, doesn’t know I’m directing this movie and can give kind of an objective opinion. So I sent my tape along with tapes of two other actresses who were up for the part.” H er au d i t io n ea r n ed k i n d w o r ds fr o m h e r objective observer — an i n d u st r y v e te ran wh o wound up becoming an acting coach for Dabis to prepare for the role.

But he can’t tell you what a mescaline h ea d tr ip i s l ik e , e ve n though he drank the concoction. Cera and his cast mates of the Sundance Film Fest iv al p r em i er e “C r y st al Fairy” boiled a cactus and drank the noxious brew to get a sense of what their characters were supposed to experience on a mescaline trip.

She had it,” Abbass said. “I watched some of the tapes that she put herself on. It was very believable, and I basically said, just go for it.

Sundance: Cera misses out on mescaline head trip

Nicks, Fogerty join Grohl for gig at Sundance

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — As Dave Grohl tool to the stage at the Park City Live, he gave the audience an expletive-laced warning: “It’s going to be a long night.” But fans were rewarded Friday night as Grohl brought out members of the Foo Fighters, ex-bandmates in Nirvana, plus John Fogerty, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, and several others in a three-hour plus concert that celebrated his directorial debut — the film “Sound City.” Earlier Friday, “Sound City,” a documentary about the music made at the recording studio of the same name, had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. “Sound City” includes interviews with some of the key musicians who made music at Los Angeles-based studio, including Nicks, T om Petty, Paul McCartney and others. At the packed concert, Grohl brought on stage some of those same players, named, appropriately enough, the Sound City Players. Fogerty performed some of his classics, including “Proud Mary,” “T raveling Band” and “Centerfield”; Springfield jammed with Grohl and others for his hits, including “Jessie’s Girl” and “I’ve Done Everything for You”; and Nicks per for med songs including “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” “I wish we could play 100 songs, but we have 17 musicians tonight,” Grohl said at one point.

Among the cast are two

Their drug experiment teaches Jamie some compassion and gives Crystal Fairy a little more grounding in the real world.

The value of such drugs is the perspective they can bring, said writer-director S ilva, wh o h as t r ied mescaline several times.

“My personal experience with it has always been in nature. It just makes you feel personally that I’m a human, like, br eathing b ein g st an d in g on a rounded planet floating in space,” said Silva, who has a second film starring C e ra at S u n dan ce, t h e horror tale “Magic Magic.” “It really grounds you in a great way that you really sort of like get out of your

own little problems that ar e n ot e ven p r ob l em s, and you really see the big picture. It’s easy to forget that you’re standing on a planet.” C e ra m ay n ot h ave taken the full mescaline h ead t r ip , b u t h e c an describe how boiled cactus tastes. “It’s a very kind of acrid, ear th y, ter r ib le tast e,” Cera said. “It’s almost like a wheatgrass shot, that terrible taste that keeps revisiting you. It shouldn’t be eaten. Natur e didn’t want you to eat it.”
