Health tips, information on adult care, and the opportunity to win prizes — including a 2012 Scion XD — never seemed so groovy. The 2012 Baby Boomer Health & Business Expo offered tips, prizes and entertainment for all at the Roswell Convention Center, Saturday. With participants dressed in everything from poodle skirts to headbands, dark shades to glittery peace signs, the fun was open to anyone unafraid of exploring Roswell — and the 1960s — in a single swoop. Many attendees were persuaded to chill out with the music of Joan Baez and have a delicious brownie, all while learning more about available health care in Roswell, at a booth dubbed the Beatnik Bar. Created by employees of Roswell Regional Hospital, the Beatnik Bar was set up like a tent and draped in black cloth. Those with the booth wore identifiably beatnik attire — black clothing, berets, and shades. Rita Jensen, director of surgical serv-

NMMI DROPS A PAIR
The NMMI men’s baseball team opened its season with a pair of losses to Otero Junior College on Saturday. In the first game, NMMI lost 10-0 and in the nightcap the Broncos fell, 16-4. In Game 1, Otero took control of the game in the second inning. Zack Mang drove in the first run of the game with a double. The big hit of the inning came when Matt Chavarria ripped a bases-loaded single that scored two to give Otero a 30 lead. - PAGE B1

The Walker Aviation Museum Foundation will host its second annual golf tournament May 12 at the New Mexico Military Institute golf course. The tournament is in memory of Dennis Ybarra, an Air Force veteran and former manager of the Roswell International Air Center, who died last May. The museum, currently located in the airport terminal, features hundreds of historical artifacts from the Walker Air Force Base, but foundation members would like additional space for new projects, such as interactive learning exhibits. Members of the foundation's board said they hope the golf tournament provides a big step towards the museum securing a stand-alone location. “We’re in our infant stages right now,” said Don Armstrong, a board
member of the foundation. “We’re just walking — beginning to walk, and we probably have less than $50,000 in our treasury and we need probably in the neighborhood of $500,000 to $1 million to accomplish the goal. To put in the kind of museum that we want to have.”

Supporters wave signs at the Nevada caucus night victory celebration for Mitt Romney in Las Vegas, Saturday.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney cruised to victory in the Nevada caucuses Saturday night, notching a second straight triumph over a field of rivals suddenly struggling to keep pace.
“Thank you NV!,” his campaign tweeted as the results were announced. “Our message of restoring
America’s greatness continues to resonate through the west & across the country.”
The former Massachusetts governor held a double-digit lead over his nearest pursuer as the totals mounted in a state where fellow Mor mons accounted for roughly a quarter of all caucusgoers.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul vied for a distant second. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum trailed the field. Returns from 13 of 17 counties showed Romney with 43 percent support, Gingrich with 24 percent, Paul with 20 percent and Santorum with 13 percent. Yet to report its results was Clark County, which includes Las Vegas and often accounts for half or more of the votes in a statewide election. Romney’s victory capped a week that began with his double-digit win in the Florida primary. That contest was as intense as Nevada’s caucuses were sedate — so quiet that they produced little television advertis-

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Members of a major drug traf ficking and money laundering Albuquerque organization recently named in an indictment had connections to the deadly Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico, federal officials said Friday. Drug Enforcement Administration special agent Keith Brown said that the 15 men named in a 29-count federal indictment unsealed last week worked as a large-scale marijuana and cocaine distributor for the violent cartel. “This was a huge organization that had a lot of impact on drug sales in Albuquerque,” said Brown. “These kinds of organizations are what feed the cartels.” The indictment stems from a multi-agency, ninemonth investigation into

the major criminal empire that federal officials said also operated in parts of Texas and Florida. According to the indictment, the 15 men were part of a group that distributed cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana between May 2011 and January 2012. But Brown said authorities believe it had been operating for several years. Last week, a team of federal and local authorities arrested most of the men named in the indictment and executed 10 search warrants at Albuquerque residences and a ranch in Edgewood. Authorities said they seized 26 kilograms of cocaine, 500 pounds of marijuana and $165,000 in cash. “The charges in this See DRUG, Page A3

Burglary victim has enough One burglary victim says that she has had enough after two burglaries in the past month. A single mother of two, Elya Ly wanted to go on record about what has been happening to her. She feels the public needs to know the plight of the victims. Ly said the first time her home was burglarized early in January, the suspect took all her children’s Christmas presents. “I don’t make a lot of money. I live in a poor section of town. I’m working very hard to buy my home and to provide a stable home for my children. I had to scrimp and save for months to buy an Xbox and some games for my son.” The game console and games are gone. The television is also lost, along with the electronics. The back door to her home was kicked in and boarded up because she cannot afford to fix it. The second time “they took everything else” and left the crowbar in the living room. “It’s almost as if they were mocking me,” she said. She said that like many others she lives from pay-
check-to-paycheck. She buys in bulk in order to get the things she needs for her family. “One paycheck goes to pay bills and the next I use to buy food and pay more bills. They stole the food. They took my baby’s formula. I just had bought three cases of diapers. They took those, and I can’t af ford to replace them.” The burglars also stole her children’s clothes. They also took her clothes, but she does not care about that loss. “They took their shoes, their jackets.” The police records indicate that the thieves removed more than $3,160 worth of goods from her home. “My house does not look like much from the outside — it’s probably one of the worst in the neighborhood — but it’s all I’ve got. I’m doing everything I can to give my children a good home, and now it’s all been taken away.” Her opinion has hardened since the second burglary. “The first time they broke in, I thought they had to be desperate to take children’s Christmas presents. Now I think they are bold and have no fear of being arrested. They know that break-ins are lower priority for the police.” Ly also expressed sympa-
thy for the officers whom she believes work hard under dif ficult circumstances. “I’m putting up posters in the neighborhood to see if I can find anything out,” Ly said. “I want people to know and I want people to understand. They are selling these things on the streets. Does anyone ever ask where these things come from?” Chief Alfonso Solis said, “I can understand the lady’s anger. I’ve been a victim of a burglary and I know how it feels. We follow every lead we get.” He agreed with the victim about stolen items being resold on the street. “I’m glad she said that. Sometimes they will sell these things on the street. I’ve always said we need the help of the citizens, the help of organizations like Neighborhood Watch, to fight crime.” Arrangements have been made with Neighborhood Watch, 426 N. Main St., as drop-of f point if anyone would like to help. “My infant wears size 4 to 5 diapers, 24 and 2T, and size 3 shoes. My 8-year-old wears size 7, medium to large, 4 to 5 shoes,” L y said.
Jesse Anthony Leyba, 22, of Roswell, pleaded guilty to a three-count indictment charging him with conspiracy, interference with interstate commerce by robbery, and using and carrying a firearm during a crime of violence. Leyba has been in federal custody since his arrest on Sept. 19. He will remain in custody pending his sentencing hearing, which has not yet been set. At sentencing, Leyba faces up to 20 years of imprisonment on counts 1 and 2, and a mandatory minimum sentence of seven
years of imprisonment on count 3. The seven-year sentence must be served consecutively to any other sentence Leyba receives in the case. According to court documents filed during Leyba’s plea hearing, on Aug. 17, Leyba armed himself with a firear m equipped with a laser and entered the Allsup’s Convenience Store on Second Street in Roswell. He pointed the gun at the store clerk. His co-defendent, Adam Cruz, 22, physically removed the clerk’s watch and ring.
The employee was ordered to open the cash register. Leyba then removed the money and beer from the convenience store.

Joanna Coronado, of Johnny Gonzales’ Community Volunteer Program, arranges Valentine goodies at Lawrence Brothers IGA, Friday, readying for the upcoming special day.
Johnny’s Valentine 2/13–15 NOAH VERNAU RECORD STAFF WRITER
The Community Volunteer Program is organizing its annual Valentine’s Party event, which will run for three days, from Monday, Feb. 13, to Wednesday, Feb. 15. The program is looking for volunteers to help prepare flower bouquets, balloons and other items, which will be delivered to dialysis patients, cancer patients, families in need and the wives and mothers of Chaves County Detention Center inmates. Johnny Gonzales, the program’s leader, said this will be the 20th Valentine’s Party, a free event. “It amazes the people that it’s free, instead of a sale,” Gonzales said. “(But) I’m a Christian. I believe in the Lord and I
believe in love.” Gonzales said the program will also give away food baskets for the elderly. “Instead of just Valentines,” he said, “a lot of (elderly people) need food. So we’re not just going to cover their hearts, we’re going to cover their stomachs.” The program hopes this year’s event reaches people who might not have many friends or family members. “If anybody knows of any person who’s alone and has no one,” he said, “we’ll do home deliveries for free.” Gonzales received a kidney transplant last year, and says the experience has changed his approach in events like these. “When I got out, I promised myself I’m going to double the work. I’m going to go back to those patients.” Gonzales said the event
runs for three days because he now understands how patients must deal with difficult schedules due to treatment. “I knew the difference — how they hurt, how they need help, how they need visitations,” he said. “That’s what we’re doing. We have a lot of volunteers.” The Community Volunteer Program has already received contributions for the event this week from Lawrence Brothers IGA, Gateway Christian School and Roswell Museum and Art Center. “It comes from the heart,” Gonzales says, “we don’t have fancy $300 bouquets — it comes from the heart.” For more information, contact the Community Volunteer Program, P.O. Box 2790, Roswell, N.M. 88202, or call, 624-7579.

completed toward the end of May. The work, consisting mostly of mill and inlay, will take place between mileposts 301 and 325, west of Roswell. This covers a stretch of highway in both Chaves and Lincoln counties. The purpose of the roadwork is to improve motorist safety and extend the life of the highway. The roadwork will only
take place on westbound lanes, but will necessitate temporary one-lane closures and a speed-limit reduction to 45 mph within the work zone. The project, in the care of Mountain States Constructors Inc., will cost approximately $5,306,805. For road construction information throughout the state, visit nmroads.com or call 511.

“We think positive,” Halverson said. “This (museum) came about so quickly and everything so we know things can happen if you set you're mind to it. And Roswell is a great support for that.” Judy Armstrong, the foundation's treasurer, says the ultimate goal behind each project is education, which the foundation believes is a benefit to the entire country. “A great part of our mission is to have education, because, as you know, America is slipping in math, science, technology, all of those things — and we want to instill an interest,” she said. “That's why we’re so excited about getting our own place.” Judy Armstrong said the current museum,

the creation of this clinic.
During a recent meeting in Albuquerque, where Pearce, members of the Veterans Advisory Council, that he assembled, and members of the Murphy VAMC, met in Artesia, the subject was discussed again. “We feel that it’s time for the VA to answer the questions. George Marnell (director of the NMVA Health Care System) has requested this but he just can’t get an answer. We’re saying give him an answer,” Pearce said, “We sent the letter from both senators and myself. Usually when you get a couple of sena-
“(It’s an) opportunity for the community to meet, and ask questions,” she said. “We’re excited that we’re now going to be Lovelace.” Kimbrell referred to the recent purchase of RRH by Lovelace Health System. Presented by Frontier Medical, and with sponsors such as Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, Primm Drug, and Interventional Spine and Pain Management Center, the expo offered a plethora of health information and services such as free flu shots and free electrocardiograms. It also offered less popularly known — but just as vital which opened in the airport terminal Sept. 18, 2010, came about, in part, after having repeated discussions with people from out of town who wondered where they could find more information about the base. However, she says the biggest motivation to open the museum was to do something for area veterans. “We thought, our veterans are getting older and older — and if we’re going to do something, we better do it quick,” she said. The museum opened in time for a veterans reunion. “I really think God blessed this project,” she said, “because we got this place leased from the city in August (2010). We were told, ‘It just so happens that space is empty.’” For more information about the golf tournament, contact Judy Armstrong at 622-9218. firstname.lastname@example.org
tors and a congressman from the district it catches their eye. The letter reads, “It is our understanding that this proposal calls for the clinic in Artesia, New Mexico, to transition to a part-time facility to allow those employees to also staff a new clinic in Roswell. We believe the establishment of a part-time Roswell clinic would be in the best interest of veterans in southeast New Mexico as it would reduce the physical and fiscal hardships of traveling long distances to attain medical care. By establishing a part-time clinic, the VA would also be able to better serve area veterans while limiting the impact on the VA’s budget.”

indictment are some of the most significant drug and money laundering charges ever filed in the District of New Mexico,” said U.S. Attorney Kenneth Gonzales. Brown said authorities believe the group was responsible for bringing in hundreds of kilos of cocaine and thousands of pounds of marijuana and the bust “hurts the cartels where it courts.” Federal authorities said some of the men bought eight race horses and may have used them to hide their business dealings. Of the 15 named in the indictment, federal of ficials said two remained at large. Among those arrested were Steve Chavez, 32, a firefighter with the Albuquerque Fire Department, and Homero Varela, 29, who authorities say was the leader of the group. Authorities said Chavez tried to hide more than $100,000 from various drug sales by depositing and withdrawing cash in Bank of America and Wells Fargo banks in New Mexico and Tampa, Fla. A federal judge denied bond this week to Chavez, who authorities also said told investigators that he spied on federal drug agents. attor ney, Chavez’ Jason Bowles, called the spying accusations false and said authorities did not seize any large

Morris said she hopes the expo achieves what the senior employment program works toward — a better understanding of the needs of seniors and how these can be met. “Seniors want to get out and socialize, feel needed, feel useful,” she said. “Everyone wants that.” With a motorcycle attracting event-goers to their booth, members of the Patriot Guard Riders handed out infor mation and applications. For member MaryAnn Murphy, the image of the motorcycle ties in nicely with the Baby Boomer generation, to which the “Easy Rider” film amounts of money on Chavez or any amount of drugs. Varela turned himself in to authorities shortly after last week’s announcement. It was unclear whether he had an attorney. Brown said authorities were able to link the Albuquerque group to a member of the Sinaloa cartel through surveillance of cellphone conversations. The Sinaloa cartel headed by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, is considered Mexico’s most powerful trafficking organization. Guzman is Mexico’s most wanted man and had been called by U.S. authorities as “world’s most powerful drug trafficker.” Guzman, 54, keeps authorities running with the support of many locals in his home in northwester n Sinaloa state, where he reportedly uses his wealth to help the poor and his drug-trafficking business to keep many employed. He is thought to be hiding out in the mountains of the “Golden Triangle” straddling Sinaloa and Durango states, territory so remote and lawless that housewives grow opium poppies for decoration and it can take police hours to reach the scene of shootings. Authorities said the Sinaloa cartel has been responsible for growing drug related violence in Mexico. Brown said although there were weapons seized, the men were not charged with any criminally related violence.

Senate races taking shape as candidates prepare for final push
SANTA FE — With filing day and party nominating conventions nearing, New Mexico’s congressional candidates will soon be switching into high gear. Quarterly financial reports, which were due the end of January, provide some indication of where races appear to be headed. The race for the U.S. Senate is extremely important to New Mexicans because once we elect our U.S. senators, we usually keep them for as long as they want. Sen. Pete Domenici served for 36 years. Sen. Jeff Bingaman will have served 30 years when he ends his term at the end of this year. Four years ago, we elected Rep. Tom Udall to fill Sen. Pete Domenici’s seat. Udall had 10 years of experience in the House. That didn’t give him any extra Senate seniority but it did mean he could jump into his role immediately without any on-the-job training. Udall’s Republican

opponent was Rep. Steve Pearce who had six years in the House. New Mexico finds itself similarly situated this year with the frontrunners in both parties boasting prior experience in the House. Former Rep. Heather Wilson, a Republican, had more than 10 years in the House. Rep. Democrat Martin Heinrich has been in the House four years, surviving the Republican landslide of 2010. Wilson appears to be running the strongest race at the moment. She and Heinrich both have more than $1 million sitting in their bank accounts at the moment. That is far more than any of their
primary opponents. Wilson is busy raising money and churning out news releases. Her biggest problem is that although she distinguished herself in Congress, serving on prestigious committees because of her background in national security, she also stepped on some toes. She is working hard at softening her hard-edged reputation. Her website currently shows her in various situations, smiling broadly. She also has a voting record to defend. In order to keep getting reelected in the Albuquerque area, she had to take some moderate positions. That does not serve her well in other parts of the state. Wilson’s strongest primary election opposition is coming from Lt. Gov. John Sanchez. But the opposition isn’t as strong as many had expected. He is still self-funding much of his campaign and isn’t making the noise that is getting him noticed.
One theory is that he is watching with great interest the notice that Gov. Susana Martinez is getting from the leading Republican presidential candidates. Not only has she been suggested by them as a vice-presidential running mate, she is a very likely choice for a Cabinet position if Republicans are victorious in November. Republicans are not polling well with women or Hispanics at this point, so having our governor out front would be a big help. Gov. Martinez insists she is not interested but she is on record indicating that she has the same presidential ambitions as our previous two governors. If the governor were to end up in Washington next year, Lt. Gov. Sanchez would suddenly find himself our state’s chief executive. Why would anyone want to go to all the work of running for the U.S. Senate when the possibility of being governor is dangling out there?
It would be interesting to see how a lieutenant governor would do taking over the reins of government. Most of our previous lieutenant governors have tried to move up after the previous governor’s ter m. Not a single lieutenant governor since statehood 100 years ago has ever been elected governor. Many have tried but the only ones to succeed have been due to a governor’s death or a move to Washington. If the U.S. Senate race ends up being Wilson vs. Heinrich, the two will be well matched. Wilson ran statewide in the 2008 U.S. Senate primary and was defeated by Rep. Steve Pearce. Heinrich hasn’t run statewide before. The little bit of polling that has been done shows Heinrich with a slight lead but that can change.

With tempers running hot around the country regarding national politics, it’s a welcome reprieve from all the turmoil to turn our attention to the upcoming municipal elections. These usually civil contests are a good way for voters in Roswell and other cities to warm up for the larger and more heated elections later this year. Roswell, and municipalities across New Mexico, will go to the polls on March 6 to elect fellow citizens to oversee the business of communities. Being a city official may not be as glamorous as holding state or national office, but it is still a very important position to hold. These elected representatives make decisions that affect our lives on a daily basis. The city takes care of our roads, provides water and sanitation services and supplies us with police to keep the peace and firefighters to come to our rescue. Overseeing these responsibilities, and countless more, is a great deal of work. City officials are also much more accessible to the public. They live here and understand the needs of their neighbors. If they are doing a good job, they hear about it. If they are not, they are a lot easier to track down than a member of Congress. Sadly, voter turnout has been low for Roswell’s municipal elections. As we said, these positions may not be as prestigious as those at higher levels, but they are critical to the well-being of everyone who resides in the city. On the March 6 ballot here in Roswell we have 10 candidates vying for seats on the City Council and two people competing for municipal judge. We also get to decide whether to establish a new tax which would fund economic development. We’re sure a lot of people have already made up their minds about how they are going to vote. However, we hope every voter has, or, will make the effort to learn about the candidates and the proposed municipal infrastructure gross receipts tax. Just casting a vote isn’t enough. It requires an educated populace to make democracy work. With this in mind, we’ve run profiles on each of the candidates and a number of stories on the tax. We’ll also be providing voter information in an upcoming issue to let people know where to vote. And don’t forget, redistricting has moved some election boundaries, so make sure to check on whether you are still in the same precinct. Another way to get better educated is to watch the Leadership Roswell Alumni Association’s Candidate Forum on Feb. 20. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church and be broadcast on Cable One. It’s a great opportunity to get a look at all the candidates. In the coming days, we’ll be issuing endorsements for this election. With a few exceptions, we have a good feel for where the candidates stand and how well qualified they are to hold office. We’ll be making a point to learn more about the candidates with whom we are less familiar. We urge everyone to vote, and to vote based on knowledge of the issues. Casting a ballot only takes a few minutes and with early voting starting on Feb. 15, there’s no reason to wait until election day and risk missing out on a chance to help shape Roswell’s future.
DEAR DOCTOR K: Most nights I fall asleep feeling fine. But I wake up in the morning with a literal pain in my neck. What can I do? DEAR READER: Without even realizing it, you may be putting stress and strain on your neck muscles at night. But there are steps you can take to prevent neck pain, even as you sleep. If your neck could talk, what position would it tell you it wanted to be in while you slept? I can’t tell you the answer from personal experience. But I think I know. It would say, “Please don’t bend your head upward or sideways. Let it fall straight back a little.” If you don’t use a pillow, try using one: You need one to give your neck muscles support.
Tax increase threatens oil jobs STEVE HENDERSON CITY COUNCILOR
The oil and gas industry is one of the few sectors of the U.S. economy that has been adding jobs. Increasing taxes on oil companies would increase their cost and thus reduce their revenue — and their ability to create more jobs. And yet this is just what President Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress propose to do — as part of their plan to create more jobs. Huh? Only in Washington
ASK DR. K UNITED MEDIA SYNDICATE
Specifically, use a pillow that supports the natural curve of your neck. If you sleep on your back, choose a rounded pillow directly under your neck, with a flatter pillow under your head. You can achieve this by tucking a small neck roll into the pillowcase of a flatter, softer pillow. Or use a pillow that has a built-in neck support with an indentation for the head.
would such a proposal sound even remotely logical. Of course, the Democrats are not pushing the proposal as a tax increase. Instead, they’re calling it “eliminating subsidies,” implying that the federal government has been giving taxpayer dollars away to the companies. But the oil companies don’t receive funds from the federal government; on the contrary, they pay taxes like other U.S. companies. You be the judge. Here are the Democratic proposals: 1. The first goes under the name “dual capacity” but in
Another option is a traditionally shaped pillow with “memory foam” that molds to the curve of your head and neck. Even better, some memory foam pillows are made especially for the neck. A larger hump of pillow is in front. That supports your neck and encourages your head to fall backward. A smaller hump of pillow is in back. When you’re lying on your back, your head fits in the dip between the humps. I use one of these, and it works great. If you sleep on your back, avoid pillows that are too high or stiff. These will keep your neck flexed overnight and can cause morning pain and stiffness. If you sleep on your side, use a pillow that is higher under your neck than your head. The dou-
fact amounts to a dual tax. Currently, oil companies — like other U.S. companies — are allowed to claim tax credits for taxes paid to foreign countries on income earned in those countries. This is not preferential treatment; the ability for all U.S. industries that operate overseas to receive tax credit in the United States for taxes paid to other countries, and thus avoid dual taxation, is long-standing. It’s common practice in other countries, as well. Yet oil companies’ ability to use foreign tax credits already is more limited than that of
ble-humped pillow works just as well for side-sleepers as backsleepers. If you tend to sleep on your stomach, you probably wouldn’t want to hear your neck’s views about that. Since it’s unwise to sleep with your face buried in a pillow, given the need to breathe, you’ve got to twist your head. If you’ve been a lifelong stomach sleeper, it might be tough to switch sleeping positions now. Still, start the night sleeping in a well-supported back or side position. Finally, reconsider reading in bed, which is tough on the neck. We have a lot more information on preventing neck pain in our Special Health Report, “Neck and See DR. K, Page A5
other industries. These limitations mean oil companies are already subject to double taxation. The Democratic proposal would only exacerbate the problem. 2. The second proposed tax increase would eliminate the job-creating incentive of Section 199 of the Tax Code — but only for the oil and gas sector. Again, this is not a subsidy, and eliminating it for only the oil industry is in effect punishing that industry and eliminating the potential

The true test of a person’s character OPINION II
Roswell Daily Record
What is on a person’s inside is manifested by what is exhibited on the outside. In other words, if someone is angry on the inside, they will sooner or later show anger on the outside. If a person is happy on the inside, they will display joy on the outside. In the lives we live, we interact with many different people in many different settings. Some settings are low stress and some are high stress. Some surroundings are familiar and some are outside our comfort zone. Sometimes we deal with people who need us, sometimes we interact with people whom we need. In our lives, we pass from one situation to another — it is called “life.” Character is something within us that is conveyed externally based on the circumstances we ar e experiencing. The ter m “character” has many definitions. Included in Webster’s definitions is “the complex of mental and ethical traits marking and often individualizing a person,” “moral excellence and firmness,” and “reputation.” Each one of us has character of one form or another. What is your character? Does character count in your life? You bet it does. It could be argued that it is at the core of your existence. So a person’s character begins on the inside. It is revealed in different settings. It defines a person. Tyron Edwards said,
JUST A THOUGHT
“Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions for m habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.” It is not much of a str etch for me to tie thoughts to character and on to a person’s destiny. Horace Greely said, “Fame is a vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, and only character endures.” John Wooden shared “Talent will get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.” And Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf tied character to leadership, “Leadership is a combination of strategy and character. If you must be without one, be without the strategy.” What we are able to accomplish in the days we have will be directly tied to our reputation. Reputation comes from character. Dwight L. Moody said, “If I take care of my character, my r eputation will take car e of itself.” John Wooden shared, “Be more concerned with your char-
Government must protect seniors
Dear Editor, I have just learned from AARP’s bulletin that efforts are under way in our Legislature to increase co-pays for Medicaid recipients; to put insurance companies on the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange despite the obvious conflict of interest (the governor is pushing this one); and to dismantle the New Mexico Department of Aging and Longterm Services. To learn more go to aarp.org/nm. Additionally, in last year’s Legislature, Sen. Tim Jennings sponsored a bill I helped write wherein background checks would be required on companies desiring to acquire nursing homes and assisted living facilities in New Mexico. Twice in 15 years companies with national reputations for wrongdoing have acquired all of Roswell’s nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Jennings’ bill never got out of committee and one reason was because 40 percent of the companies, board members and officers for corporations currently operating in New Mexico would not do well on the background checks due to unsatisfactory reputations with other state and federal regulators. The local bed pan washers have to pass a background check to make $8 an hour, but not the big corporate operators. In these days of supposed belt-tightening, it is imperative that seniors and those who care about seniors, and the baby boomers approaching their own seniority, apply political pressure to Congress and the New Mexico Legislature for a reallocation of resources, or taxes, to enhance, rather than cut services for our elders.

acter than your r eputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is mer ely what others think you are.” Abraham Lincoln a century earlier explained character and reputation the same way in different words, “Character is like a tree and reputation is like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.” If character is the real thing as Mr. Lincoln said, it is important that we make sur e our character is what it needs to be. Character is who you are when no one is looking. It is who you are in the dark. Your character is what you have left when you have lost everything you can possibly lose. We all have dif ferent pasts and are programed differently. We all have free will and freedom of choice. Combining the journey we have walked with the power we have over our own future, we live life day to day and minute by minute. How do we deter mine what the true character is that each of us possesses? Since we are unable to examine a person’s inside, we look for exter nal signs. I like the saying, “Crisis doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.” In a crisis situation, a person’s true character is revealed; same in a high stress situation. I believe that the best gauge of

a person’s character is what respect a person pays to another who can do nothing for him. Or, what respect is shown to a person in a “minimum wage type” service position? Let me explain. If a person’s character is truly about others, he will perform actions that help others. He will hold doors open for strangers, he will be kind to the waitress, he will stop and visit with the janitor. He will give his time and resources to those less fortunate. I guess what I am saying is that if I spend enough time with another, I can get a pretty good glimpse of the character of that person; not by how the person treats me or even the others in our group, but by how the person interacts with individuals outside our group. Or, here is another gauge on a person’s character: Just because a young man treats my daughter with respect in a dating situation doesn’t mean he is a person of character if he yells at the clerk at the grocery store and then cusses out the waitress at dinner. A person’s character is very important. There is an entire organization that is focused on character called “Character Counts.” It defines character with six pillars: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. My challenge to you is to be a
jobs that would result. If both provisions become law, industry sources say the result would be elimination of 154,000 jobs and $341 billion in economic activity, as well as negatively impacting U.S. energy security. The oil and gas industry employs 9.2 million people in full- and part-time jobs in the United States, providing $558 billion in labor income, 6.3 percent of the national labor income total. The industry also contributes more than $1 trillion to the U.S. economy, 7.5 percent of the gross domestic product. The target is so-called “Big Oil” — U.S.-based oil companies that do business overseas. But despite the sobriquet, these companies are not the giants of the oil industry; the real oil giants are companies owned by foreign governments. Many of these dwarf U.S. companies. Hitting U.S. companies with additional taxes on their overseas operations will decrease the value of their foreign investments, making some investments unprofitable. The result will be that these companies will be less competitive in these markets and more of this oil will be produced by state-owned oil companies, many controlled by governments hostile to U.S. interests. Since only 40 percent of the oil on which the U.S. economy depends comes from wells in this country, any tax increase that would make it more difficult for U.S. companies to compete with foreign-owned companies is a threat not only to the bottom line of the companies but also to the energy security of the United States. The less oil and gas that come into this country through privately owned, U.S.-based companies, the more that will have to come from companies owned by foreign governments, many of them ready and willing to use petroleum as a weapon to further their countries’ diplomatic agendas at the expense of U.S. interests. Would you rather the foreign oil the U.S. economy depends on — 60 percent of the total — be controlled by U.S. companies, whose focus is on making a profit providing a vital commodity, or by companies owned by foreign governments, whose focus is on furthering their country’s economic and diplomatic interests, which may be contrary to those of the United States? A prime example of the danger posed by these foreign governments is Iran’s threat to blockade the Straits of Hormuz, through which much of the Middle East oil must pass, if the United Nations goes through with a
person of high character. Sometimes the only thing you can control is yourself. But because you can control you, you determine the character you carry. No one can take your character away from you. In the Bible at Proverbs 22:1, it says “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.” Character is something that cannot be bought, borrowed or stolen. It can only be developed one good decision at a time. You can’t control how others perceive your character, but you can cr eate and maintain the best character that you can and then others can perceive it as they may. A good perception by others is not your goal, but it may be a result because of your efforts on your character. Eleanor Porter said, “The influence of a beautiful, helpful, hopeful character is contagious, and may revolutionize a whole town.” It can also revolutionize a relationship, a family, a business and an organization. Think about the contagious nature of your character and who it influences as you develop your character one decision at a time. Just a thought ...

proposal to institute more economic sanctions — despite the fact that much of Iran’s own oil is shipped through the straits. The threat says that the government of Iran may be willing to sacrifice its own economic interests to make a diplomatic point. As an example of the economic chaos oil-producing countries can cause, one only has to go back to the 1973 Arab oil embargo. The resulting upturn in oil prices was a major contributor to the so-called “stagflation” (stagnant business growth paired with increasing prices) of the later 1970s. In his 2011 State of the Union address, President Obama asked Congress for more taxes, including energy taxes, despite a struggling economy, despite the fact that the resulting increase in energy costs would hurt consumers. Energy taxes would affect the cost of almost everything else, because it takes energy to produce and deliver almost everything else. If he would ask for more energy taxes at a time when the economy could least afford it, we surely can expect him to renew that call based on the few signs of economic recovery he and other Democratic leaders are touting. But if these signs do point to a recovery, it will be at best a fragile one, and increased energy costs that would follow an increase in energy taxes would likely torpedo it. Nevertheless, the signs of economic improvement will give the president and Democratic leaders in Congress an excuse to renew their calls for more energy taxes, so Americans in general — and especially those in energyproducing areas such as southeastern and northwestern New Mexico — must be prepared. What can individuals do to try to derail this potentially disastrous proposal? In New Mexico, we have five people representing us in Congress — Sens. Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall in the Senate and Reps. Steve Pearce, Ben Ray Lujan and Martin Heinrich in the House of Representatives. Registered voters should contact all our representatives and let them know we are opposed to any increase in energy taxes, including the proposed “dual-capacity” tax that would tax oil companies on income on which they already have paid taxes to other governments. The real battle is expected to be in the Democrat-controlled Senate, so it’s especially important to contact Bingaman and Udall. Let them know that the proposed tax increase would hurt New Mexicans twice — in increased energy costs and in potential economic losses to parts of the state dependent on oil and gas production.

Cleaner cars needed
Dear Editor: We must continue to fight for clean air for the sake of our future generations. They deserve a cleaner world than we now have. Clean cars are one answer to this problem. Strong mileage standards will help to fight global warming and save us money at the gas pump. This would also create more jobs, which everybody knows, we desperately need. Consumer Reports, in a recent poll, found that 77 percent of Americans agree that car makers should produce more fuel-efficient vehicles. Sincerely, Mrs. Lee Sides Roswell
Greed versus health of a nation
Dear Editor: I hear Republicans telling Democrats and liberals and progressives and people like myself that we “just don’t get it.” I admit it. I just don’t get it. Perhaps someone can explain it to me. Sheldon Anderson, the casino magnate, has already given $10 million dollars to a Newt Gingrich superPAC. He’s ready to give more. According to an article in Forbes he could give a billion, that’s right, a billion dollars to political campaigns and not even notice it. It would be less than 5 percent of his net worth. But people like Sheldon Anderson, and indeed most Republicans, balk at giving even a dollar to a financially foundering country in increased taxes. Money that could be used to repair our crumbling infrastructure and help pay down our enormous war debt; wars that they supported and still support. I am reminded of Warren Gekko, the fictional character played by Michael Douglas in the movie “Wall Street” where he gave a speech touting greed; saying, “Greed is good!” Is it? There’s something to be said about the trillion dollars that this year’s political campaigns are probably going to cost. All that money going to CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC, and hundreds of local television stations to purchase air time not so much to tout the qualities of their favorite candidates, but to trash their opponents. We talk about paying down the national debt by a trillion dollars over a decade. We could do that in a 10th of the time by raising progressive tax rates on everybody, but especially the wealthy, for more positive purposes than supporting one crook over another in an election. If this is what democracy has morphed into, then I say democracy sucks. (Those who disagree with me can take that last phrase out of context to use against me). Conservatives will accuse me of wealth envy for saying all of this. If a desire to be willing to pay more in taxes from not only people on fixed incomes like myself, but also from the wealthiest of us, to fix a broken nation is envy, then I’m guilty. Let’s make the most out of envy. Right after World War II our country was in deeper debt than it is now. The national debt in 1945 was 125 percent of the GDP.

The top marginal tax rate was over 90 percent on millionaires. The marginal tax rate on a blue collar worker like my father was about 25 percent, almost twice what it is now. And they stayed that way for two decades. Not only did they start paying off the war debt, but they sent a million or more returning GIs to college, started the space program, and began building our interstate highway system. I never heard them whine and complain about high taxes like I hear them today. But then they were the Greatest Generation. Today’s generation is spending less on education. Has terminated the space program. Is allowing our interstate highway system and infrastructure to crumble into disrepair. We aren’t even knee high to the Greatest Generation. What can you say about a Republican who when asked if he would be willing to lay down his life for his country replies with a resounding “yes”; but when asked if he would lay down a dollar for his country replies with a resounding “no”? What kind of patriotism is that? Conservatives are right. I just don’t get it. Noel Sivertson Roswell
Tribute to Oscar Fairfield
Dear Editor: It must have been on the far side of 30 years ago when I read a letter to the editor in the RDR asking for volunteers to drive Roswell veterans to/from the VA Medical Center in Albuquerque. Oscar Fairfield wrote that letter and that’s how we met. Oscar is one of the original group of veterans, and a former DAV Chapter 4 Commander, who built Veterans Hall. I volunteered to assist Oscar in driving the veterans back and forth to VAMC in Albuquerque in our own vehicles. Between picking up veterans at their homes in the morning and bringing them safely home at night we put in some 12- and 14-hour days and cumulatively drove thousands of miles during those trips. Oscar was generous not only with his time but also his money. If he knew a veteran riding with him was broke he’d give them some money without being asked. He never asked for repayment. When I later drove some of those same veterans I’d hear them say many times what a great guy Oscar was and how he helped them in many ways. He had the patience of Job trying to teach me to play golf, perhaps his one failure in life. Teaching was his profession. He’s a retired Roswell High School math teacher. Over those many years I’ve remained friends with Oscar and today I was with him as he celebrated his 90th birthday. An old sailor, and avid golfer, a veteran who was always there for other veterans and just a really nice godly man. Happy birthday Oscar. Bob Allen Roswell

Praise for legislator’s help
Dear Editor: We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank state Rep. Candy Spence Ezzell, R-Roswell, for her help. Our special friend Glen, who is challenged, has been such a blessing in my life and in many others who have known him at his church and in our community. Glen has reached a time in his life that he can no longer care for himself. He was admitted to Sunset Villa and absolutely loves it there. The care and attention he receives surpasses anything we could of hoped for him and our dear friend is happier than he’s ever been. Unfortunately, we were having trouble getting the state to accept him despite the pleas of some of
our wonderful doctors, the staff at Sunset Villa and other dear friends. I ran into Ezzell at the CASA Christmas auction this past year and remembered meeting her at Glen’s home right after the election. She had stopped by to personally thank Glen, who had proudly displayed her sign on his front lawn. I explained his situation and she said she would take care of it. We have just gotten word that he has been accepted. Ms. Ezzell, thank you, thank you, thank you! It is refreshing to know we have a representative who will do what she says she will do; stand up for a person in his time of need. God bless you, Maggy and Roger Slayton Roswell

Your heart’s health may require a change of lifestyle!
February is American Heart Month and also kicks off American Healthy Heart Month. Cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, is the leading cause of death in the United States, one in three, and 2,200 deaths per day. These are complex medical issues, and impossible to cover well in a short column. So we must shortcut the topics, seriously urging our readers to dig further to learn more about this critical subject. Here are some signs of a heart attack. First is chest discomfort, usually in the center of the chest and lasting more than 3-5 minutes, or that goes away and
comes back. It may be a feeling of pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain. There may also be discomfort – maybe even sharp pain in other areas of the upper body, perhaps one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach. Another symptom may be shortness of breath, whether or not chest discomfort is evident. There could also be a cold sweat, nausea, or lightheadedness. But you must also know that there may be no symptoms at all! That’s where maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can be the best prevention. Strokes are another risk to our heart health.

Sunday, February 5, 2012
trouble walking, dizziness, or loss of balance. There may also be a sudden severe headache with no known cause. An acronym, F-A-S-T, has been developed to help determine if the person is experiencing a stroke. •Face: ask them to smile and check for signs of weakness on one side of the face. •Arms: ask them to raise both arms at the same time and look for weakness or numbness in one or both the limbs. •Speech: In a simple sentence (i.e., “Lunch is ready”), is their speech slurred or are they having trouble speaking.
•Time: Call 9-1-1 right away. Be sure to note the time the symptoms started. Having “been there, done that”, I will strongly agree with two things. First, don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1. You may think you can get to the hospital sooner, but the care given the instant that the ambulance arrives could be the difference in life or death. And secondly, take an aspirin. It may be two 81 mg tablets or one 325 adult aspirin. Just take an aspirin! Finally, there are three simple steps you may follow in order to lessen the risk you have for cardiovascular disease.

SPORTS Roswell Daily Record
The NMMI men’s baseball team opened its season with a pair of losses to Otero Junior College on Saturday. In the first game, NMMI lost 10-0 and in the nightcap the Broncos fell, 16-4. In Game 1, Otero took control of the game in the second inning. Zack Mang drove in the first run of the game with a double. The big hit of the inning came when Matt Chavarria ripped a bases-loaded single that scored two to give Otero a 3-0 lead. The final run of the inning came on a Nerio Barreto RBI-single. Bronco coach Bret Simmermacher said that his team played nervous. “We didn’t play very well that is for sure,” he said. “It all started in the second inning of game No. 1. We gave up a four spot. I think we played nervous, not only as position players, but as pitchers. I didn’t think we attacked the zone like we need to. “When we did throw strikes, it was in the middle of the plate and you can’t do that at this level.” Otero tacked on two runs in the fifth, one in the sixth
and three in the seventh. NMMI’s Elvis Perez, Pedro Taveras and Steven De La Cruz each had a hit for the Broncos in the first game. In the second game, Otero scored 10 runs in the first inning, but Simmermacher was pleased that his team responded by scoring two runs in both the second and third inning. “In Game 2, we got down 10-0 in the first, but we ended up putting four runs on the board,” he said. “We just have to get better and learn from it and be as positive as we can.”

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Kendall Williams found motivation by a halftime tonguelashing and Hugh Greenwood received incentive by seeing a fellow Aussie in the opposing uniform. Those events helped spur the two New Mexico players to solid efforts as the Lobos won their fourth straight game by dispatching Boise State, 65-49 on Saturday. Williams had a game-high 18 points and Greenwood had his first career doubledouble with 10 points and 10 rebounds as the Lobos (19-4, 5-2 Mountain West) remained in the upper tier of the conference. Kenny Buckner scored 11 points for Boise State (10-12, 0-7), which has lost a school-record eight straight games. New Mexico led by seven See UNM, Page B2

RB Curtis Martin, four linemen make Hall of Fame
Members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012 are, from left, Jack Butler, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin and Chris Doleman. Not pictured are Willie Roaf and Dermontti Dawson.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Curtis Martin has gone from the mean streets of Pittsburgh to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The star running back with the Patriots and Jets for 11 seasons was one of six players elected Saturday to the shrine. Martin once disliked playing the game,
but used it to escape a neighborhood where his grandmother was murdered. “When I get awarded something like the Hall of Fame, it’s almost foreign to me,” said Martin, the NFL’s No. 4 career rusher. “This wasn’t something I planned on doing. Football is something I did so I didn’t end up
jailed or dead. “If you make up your mind to just do the right thing no matter what ... and you stick to it, which I did, this is how things can turn around. I feel as if my life turned around from what it used to be, and I think anyone has a chance.” Martin and four linemen
were elected to the hall, along with one senior committee choice. He is joined by Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Willie Roaf, Dermontti Dawson, and senior selection Jack Butler. Jerome Bettis, Cris Carter and Bill Parcells were among the finalists who didn’t make it.
“I’m not even close to this position, I actually don’t think I’d play more than four or five years without Bill Parcells,” Martin said, indicating he will have his former coach present him for induction on Aug. 4 in Canton, Ohio. See HOF, Page B2

the last for the go-ahead points, as No. 4 Missouri fought off No. 8 Kansas 74-71 in Game 1 of what could be the schools’ final border showdown on Saturday night. Denmon scored 29 points, two off his career best, and ended a long-range shooting slump with a career-best six 3-pointers in nine attempts. The go-ahead 3-pointer came with 56 seconds to go for a one-point lead. Michael Dixon added a pair of free throws with 9.8 seconds left after an offensive foul on Tyshawn Taylor and Kansas’ Elijah Johnson missed badly on a shot to tie it at the buzzer. Missouri (21-2, 8-2 Big 12) beat Kansas for only the second time in the last 12 meetings, and the Tigers’ impending departure for the SEC added spice to the final conference meeting in Columbia, Mo.

points at halftime, but that wasn’t sufficient for coach Steve Alford. And the main target of his halftime chat was Williams, who had just four points at that point. “We challenged him because I thought he had a poor first half and a bigtime second half,” Alford said. “He was really, really good in the second half. That was a big plus for us.” Williams had six of New Mexico’s first seven points in the second half and made all five of his second-half shots to finish 7of-10 from the field. “A little talk, a little motivation,” Williams said of the halftime session. “It was a pretty pathetic first half. We let them hang around. We’ve been playing better than we’ve shown in the first half and I hold myself to a higher standard. So after the motivation, we came out and did a really good job in the second half.” Greenwood played on the Australian U-19 squad that finished sixth in the world championships this past summer with Boise State freshmen Anthony Drmic and Igor Hadziomerovic. Drmic is Boise State’s leading scorer had just seven points on 2-of-9 shooting against the Lobos. Hadziomerovic missed the game with a

NMMI coach Zeljka Vidic said that her team played hard in both matches. “We played really well,” she said. “The match against Collin could have went either way. We just had some areas that we have to work on. The girls really stepped up and played well in both matches. “We just have to keep pushing and working hard, and improving. I am proud of them.”

The Broncos trailed 3227 early in the second half before the Lobos used a 13-3 surge to build the lead to 15 points. Greenwood and Snell hit backto-back 3-pointers to cap the run.

New Mexico trailed early but began pulling away when it rolled off 13 consecutive points to take a 23-12 lead with 7:39 left in the first half. Phillip McDonald hit two 3-pointers during the surge and Snell capped it off with a ferocious dunk.

Chiefs in discussions with Daboll to run offense
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs are in discussions with Brian Daboll to become their new offensive coordinator. Team spokesman Ted Crews told The Associated Press on Saturday that Daboll has not been hired, but the two sides remain in discussions. The former Dolphins offensive coordinator could be introduced as soon as Monday, when Chiefs executives return from the Super Bowl in Indianapolis. Daboll would take over for Bill Muir, who announced his retirement Wednesday. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel had already interviewed candidates for offensive coordinator before Muir’s retirement. Others known to have interviewed were quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn and former Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders. Daboll has connections to Crennel and Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli after spending time in New England, where Daboll coached wide receivers and Crennel was defensive coordinator. Daboll later spent two seasons as the New York Jets’ quarterbacks coach before taking over as offensive coordinator in
the sacks list when he retired. “I am totally blown away by this and humbled by it,” Doleman said, adding his son, Evan, would present him for induction. “When they call your name, you’re absolutely numb.” Kennedy was a force inside, both as a run stopper and in threatening quarterbacks. The 1992 Defensive Player of the Year made eight Pro Bowls, had 58 sacks — an unusually high total for a tackle — and spent his entire 11-season career with Seattle. Roaf spent one season at right tackle, then the rest of his 13 seasons on the left side, making 11 Pro Bowls. He made the All-Decade team for the 1990s. Dawson made seven Pro Bowls as the Steelers’ center, that rare snapper who also could block defensive players one on one. He replaced a Hall of Famer,
Cleveland. The Browns were last in the NFL in total offense during his first season and 29th in Year 2, after which he departed for Miami. The Dolphins were 22nd in total offense this season, though there was marked improvement over the second half of the season. Miami also piled up 31 points in a victory over the Chiefs. Daboll would be taking over a potentially potent offense in Kansas City. All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles is expected to participate in offseason workouts after missing all but the first two weeks of the season with a knee injury. Tight end Tony Moeaki will also be back after sustaining a similar knee injury during a preseason game. Quarterback Matt Cassel will also be back after hurting his hand during Week 10. The Chiefs still managed to play themselves into a position to defend their AFC West title despite struggling on offense. But their playoff hopes were dashed when they managed only 13 points in an overtime loss to Oakland in the penultimate game of the season.

Mike Webster, and started for Pittsburgh for most of his 13 pro seasons. Butler also played for the Steelers as a cornerback from 1951-59, picking off 52 passes, at the time second most in NFL history. But he was best known for his tackling skills. “They told me I was good. I didn’t know I was good,” Butler said. “I never, ever, ever thought I would be here.” Guard Will Shields did not get in — the only firstyear eligible player to make the 15-man finals. Shields started all but one of the 224 games in his 14 seasons in Kansas City. Bettis also fell short.

Pats WR Welker OK with being overshadowed Roswell Daily Record
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Wes Welker is used to being overlooked. He’s 5-foot-9. He wasn't drafted. His 11 catches couldn’t prevent a Super Bowl loss four years ago. And in the run up to Sun-
day’s rematch against the New York Giants, the New England Patriots wide receiver is getting little attention. Welker’s NFL-leading 122 receptions were in the shadow of the spotlight-filling
injured ankle of 6-foot-6 tight end Rob Gronkowski. So does the small receiver feel he needs a big game to raise his profile? “I don’t think I am really worried about that too much,” Welker said. “I just try to go out there and do my job to the best of my ability. I really just focus on whatever I have to do to help the team win the game.” He could have a larger role with Gronkowski at less than full strength. His high left ankle sprain could keep him from tacking on plenty of yards, as he often does, after catching passes. Tom Brady certainly relies on Welker, whose 554 receptions since 2007 lead the NFL, 80 more than Brandon Marshall’s second highest total. “Wes Welker would make any quarterback better with his ability to get open and catch the ball,” Brady said. “He’s a very smart player who has a great feel for the game, who has a great feel for how to get open in manto-man (coverage), where to find the spots in zone, great body language.” That body language and Welker’s ability to confuse defensive backs are keys to his success. He also knows that reading what the
Sunday, February 5, 2012
safeties are doing is a key to how the defense will handle a play. He usually lines up in the slot and tries to start his patterns the same way so a defender doesn’t know what’s coming. Then the sure-handed receiver will plant his foot, cut sharply to the left or right or head downfield and latch onto Brady's pass after eluding a defender. “I think you go off and react to what they do,” Welker said. “However they decide to play you, you attack it. A lot of it is reaction and being quick and in and out of breaks and doing different things to get open.” Deion Branch usually lines up on the outside and tight end Aaron Hernandez sometimes starts there, too. Gronkowski and Welker are at their best over the middle. “I just think that they have a good system,” Giants cornerback Corey Webster said. “How they use (Welker) inside the system is wonderful. You can’t have a system without players inside of it as well.” When Welker was at Texas Tech, he couldn’t imagine being so successful in the NFL, let alone making it to his second Super Bowl in four years.

“I didn’t really have any big expectations,” he said. “I really just wanted a job. I wanted to go out there and do the best I can to try to get that job.” He signed as a free agent with San Diego. The Chargers waived him after the first game in 2004 and the Miami Dolphins signed him after the second. As a rookie, he returned kickoffs and punts but didn’t catch a single pass. In seven seasons since then — five with the Patriots — he has 650 receptions. With 123 in 2009 and 122 this season, he joined Cris Carter as the only players with two seasons of more than 120. “He’s a very decisive player,” Brady said. “When you watch him run routes, he makes very swift decisions.
That gives me a lot of confidence.” But the 30-year-old Welker doesn’t take time to think about how far he’s come — from a lightly-regarded college player to Brady’s passing partner in two title games. In the 2008 championship game, his 11 catches tied a Super Bowl record, but the Giants won 17-14. Still, not bad for a little guy who drew little interest before the draft. “I just try to focus on the here and now, and what I have to do now to get ready for a game,” he said. “I don’t think you can really sit back and look back too much. You have just got to continue to get better, continue to try to learn and do what you can to try to help the team win.”

Super Bowl: Giants-Patriots matchups B4 Sunday, February 5, 2012
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin speaks during a news conference for Super Bowl XLVI, Friday.
Matchups for the Super Bowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots on Sunday in Indianapolis:
When the Giants have the ball
The Giants no longer are a grind-it-out offense. In fact, they ranked last in rushing this season, although that’s misleading because the running game has been better in their string of six wins in seven games. Ahmad Bradshaw (44) has battled through back and foot injuries and is more power ful than would be expected for his 5foot-9, 200-pound build. Brandon Jacobs (27) is the big back and has some burst. But the ground game has stagnated at times because the line has been inconsistent in its blocking. The Giants will try to spring Bradshaw and Jacobs behind G Chris Snee (76) and T David Diehl (66), but the line’s main chore is keeping QB Eli Manning (10) upright long enough for him to do damage. And Manning, in his best season of an eight-year career, has been superb. Even in the NFC championship game, when the numbers didn’t seem great in the 20-17 overtime win at rainy, slippery Candlestick Park, Manning made enough big plays to get the Giants to their second Super Bowl in four years.
He did so against the league’s most punishing defense and despite six sacks. Snee, fellow G Kevin Boothe (77) and C David Baas (64) will see plenty of DT Vince Wilfork (75), by far the best performer on defense for New England. Wilfork even will rush off the edge at times, but has been immovable in the middle of the line during the playoffs. The Patriots have eight sacks in the postseason and get pressure from a variety of people: LBs Rob Ninkovich (50), Jerod Mayo (51) and Brandon Spikes (55), and linemen Mark Anderson (95), Shaun Ellis (94) and perhaps a blitzing safety. Where New York matches up best is with WRs Hakeem Nicks (88), Victor Cruz (80) and Mario Manningham (82) against a jumbled secondary that, at times, has included WRs Julian Edelman (11) and Matthew Slater (18). CB Kyle Arrington (24) tied for the league lead with seven interceptions, but also injured his eye in the AFC championship win over Baltimore. He should be fine. New York’s biggest edge is in this area, especially if the Giants can get man coverage on one of those receivers against some relatively untested CBs, or against safeties James Ihedigbo (44) or Patrick Chung (25). Backup CB Sterling Moore (29) was vic-

timized for a 29-yard TD by Torrey Smith, but then stripped Lee Evans of a potential winning TD catch in the final moments.
When the Patriots have the ball
QB Tom Brady (12) was unhappy with his play in the AFC title game, and Brady rarely has two consecutive mediocre outings. He was intercepted twice by Baltimore, but did lead the winning drive, which he capped with a 1-yard dive and an emphatic spike. It’s Brady’s arm, of course, that New York must be most concerned with. This matchup is no different from the teams’ regularseason meeting, a 24-20 Giants win, nor from the 2008 Super Bowl. If Brady gets time, he will find his two All-Pro receivers, Wes Welker (83) and TE Rob Gronkowski (87), not to mention WR Deion Branch (84) and TE Aaron Hernandez (81). So the Giants must pressure Brady with a varied pass rush. Up front, All-Pro DE Jason Pierre-Paul (90), Justin Tuck (91) and Osi Umenyiora (72) need to be forces against a line built to protect Brady and anchored by Gs Logan Mankins (70) and Brian Waters (54) and T Matt Light (72). LBs Mathias Kiwanuka (94) and Michael Boley (59) are dangerous on the rush, as well. If the Giants can force either Gronkowski or Hernandez to block more than

the Patriots want, it could be decisive. So could the high left ankle sprain Gronkowski is battling through if it limits him. If not, the two tight ends are difficult challenges for New York’s linebackers — although backup Jacquian Williams (57) is quick enough to run with Gronkowski and Hernandez. Williams has a sprained right foot, though. Safeties Antrel Rolle (26) , Kenny Phillips (21) and Deon Grant (34) have stood out in pass coverage and run D recently. CB Corey Webster (23) figures to cover Welker, even when Welker lines up in the slot. Should the Giants get a decent pass rush on Brady, Welker becomes even more important to New England's offense. Also a key is if the Patriots can run as well as they did in the previous postseason games. BenJarvus Green-Ellis (42) is vastly underrated, and Danny Woodhead (39) is a versatile, do-everything guy. Mostly, though, it comes down to how much time Brady gets to throw. The Patriots will operate out of a no-huddle much of the time to minimize how many substitutions New York makes on defense. Because the Giants have so many versatile defenders, that might not work as well as it has against other teams.
New England has plenty
of faith in PK Stephen Gostkowski (3), and indoors at Lucas Oil Stadium, he’s likely to attempt long field goals if necessary. His kickoffs in the playoffs have been consistently deep into the end zone. Punter Zoltan Mesko (14) is a lefty kicker and the ball can act funky off his foot. He doesn’t get on the field all that often, which is a good thing for the Patriots; the fewer punts, the better. Bill Belichick also has a special teams coaching background and his coverage groups are trustworthy. Not that the Giants are particularly dangerous in the return game. Where New York has been exceptional is in kick coverages, and the two critical turnovers in the NFC championship victory at San Francisco came on punt coverages. Lawrence Tynes (9) makes the clutch field goals and twice has kicked the Giants into the Super Bowl with overtime winners. His kickoffs have improved recently. Steve Weatherford (5) has been terrific in the second half of the season as the punter and did a masterful job holding for the winning field goal in the slop against San Francisco.
Two of the best in the business matching wits, Tom Coughlin and Belichick. Both come from the Bill Parcells coaching tree, Coughlin an offensive guru
and Belichick a defensive mastermind. Here’s the catch: New York has been a stronger defensive team in Coughlin’s tenure (200412), while the Patriots have morphed into an offensive machine since Belichick took charge in 2000. Coughlin’s players show a genuine fondness for the 65-year-old coach, particularly after he toned down his heavy-handed approach before the 2007 season. That, remember, was New York’s championship season. With fans calling for his job after a disappointing non-playoff performance in 2010, and again when the Giants were 7-7 during this regular season, Coughlin ignored the outside noise. More importantly, he got his players to remain focused on the prize — which is now one win away. Unlike Coughlin, who answers to GM Jerry Reese on many personnel issues, Belichick is in total charge in New England. His track record: three Super Bowl titles, five appearances in the big game (including this year) and a 155-58 overall mark as coach. Belichick is more willing to experiment in game plans and with his players; who else uses receivers as defensive backs, or has come up with a passing attack built on two passcatching tight ends? If either coach comes up with an unusual wrinkle in the Super Bowl, it almost certainly will be Belichick.

Popular character actor Ben Gazzara dies at 81 in NY
Ben Gazzara as Sgt. Angelo in a scene from 1968’s motion picture “The Bridge at Remagen.”
NEW YORK (AP) — Ben Gazzara, whose powerful dramatic per for mances brought an intensity to a variety of roles and made him a memorable presence in such iconic productions over the decades as the original “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” on Broadway and the film “The Big Lebowski,” has died at age 81. Longtime family friend Suzanne Mados said Gazzara died Friday in Manhattan. Mados, who owned the Wyndham Hotel, where celebrities such as Peter Falk and Martin Sheen stayed, said he died after being placed in hospice care for cancer. She and her husband helped marry Gazzara and his wife, German-born Elke Krivat, at their hotel. Gazzara was a proponent of method acting, in which the performer attempts to take on the thoughts and emotions of the character he’s playing, and it helped him achieve stardom early in his career with two stirring Broadway performances. In 1955, he originated the role of Brick Pollitt, the disturbed alcoholic son and failed football star in “Cat
on a Hot Tin Roof.” He left the show after only seven months to take on an equally challenging role, Johnny Pope, the drug addict in “A Hatful of Rain.” It earned him his first of three Tony Award nominations. In 1965, he moved on to TV stardom in “Run for Your Life,” a drama about a workaholic lawyer who, diagnosed with a terminal illness, quits his job and embarks on a globe-trotting attempt to squeeze a lifetime of adventures into the one or two years he has left. He was twice nominated for Emmys during the show’s three-year run. Gazzara made his movie debut in 1957 in “The Strange One,” Calder Willingham’s bitter drama about brutality at a Southern military school. He had previously played the lead role of the psychopathic cadet, Jocko de Paris, on Broadway in Willingham’s stage version of the story, “End of Man.” He followed that film with “Anatomy of a Murder,” in which he played a man on trial for murdering a tavern keeper who had been accused of raping his wife.
After “Run for Your Life” ended in 1968, Gazzara spent the rest of his career alternating between movies and the stage, although rarely with the critical acclaim he had enjoyed during his early years. In the 1970s, he teamed with his friend director John Cassavetes for three films, “The Killing of a Chinese Bookie” and “Opening Night.” In another Cassavetes film, he appeared with Falk, and the two became friends (it was Cassavetes who introduced them to the Wyndham Hotel, according to a 1982 article in New York magazine). Gena Rowlands appeared with Gazzara in “Opening Night,” which also starred Cassavetes. Cassavetes and Rowlands were married; he died in 1989. Falk died last year. “It breaks my heart to have this era come to an end. Ben meant so much to all of us. To our families. To John. To Peter. To have them gone now is devastating to me,” she said in a statement. She said her prayers and thoughts went out to “all his loyal and wonder ful fans throughout the world.” Rita Moreno, who played Gazzara’s wife in the 2000 film “Blue Moon,” said, “He was a wonderful man, and I so enjoyed working with him. I wish I could have had the pleasure more often.” Other Gazzara films included “The Bridge at Remagen,” “The Young Doctors,” “They All Laughed,” “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “If It’s Tuesday, It Must Be Belgium,” “The Spanish Prisoner,” “Stag” and “Road House.” He also made several films in Italy. He appeared on Broadway in revivals of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” “Awake and Sing!” “Strange Interlude” and several other plays. Gazzara began acting in
television in 1952 with roles on the series “Danger” and “Kraft Television Theater.” Before landing “Run for Your Life,” he played a police detective in the series “Arrest and Trial,” which lasted two seasons. Bor n Biagio Anthony Gazzara in New York on Aug. 28, 1930, he grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in a cold-water flat with a bathtub in the kitchen. His parents were immigrants from Sicily who met and married in New York, and his first language was Italian. Although he was baptized under his birth name, his parents always called him Ben or Benny. As a child he became fascinated with movies, and after giving his first performance, in a Boys Club play, he knew he had found his life’s work. “I disliked high school,” he once said, “and after two years of it I left without telling anyone at home.” Instead he spent his days
in movie theaters. He entered Erwin Piscator’s Dramatic Workshop in 1948. Eighteen months later he auditioned for the Actors Studio run by Lee Strasberg and was accepted. The school was a beehive of activity in those days, turning out such followers of method acting as Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, James Dean, Barbara Bel Geddes, Shelly Winters, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Rod Steiger and Julie Harris. “There’s a lot of voodoo about the Actors Studio,” Gazzara told The Associated Press in 1966. “In the best sense it was a place for professionals to stay in touch with their craft, where newcomers and professionals mingled, to grow, to try parts they would never get in the professional theater and to even fall on their face.” Gazzara’s first two marriages, to actresses Louise Erikson and Janice Rule,
ended in divorce.
While filming “Inchon” in Korea in 1981, he met Krivat. They married the following year, and the union endured.
“Elke saved my life,” Gazzara said in 1999. “When I met her, I was drinking too much, fooling around too much, killing myself. She put romance and hope back in my life.”
He adopted Krivat’s daughter, Danja, as his own. She recalled on Friday that he was a “complex soul” and that his role as a father to her and his own daughter was challenging.
“I adored Ben, and so did his daughter,” she said. “But we both had difficulty with him ... I think the difficulty lay in his complexity of being an actor and those layers that you have, that you bring with you.”
Besides Danja, Gazzara is survived by his wife, daughter Elizabeth and a brother.

Reject tax increase
Dear Editor: The mayor wants to raise taxes in order to subsidize private businesses. He’s proud that his predecessors gave tax money, in the form of rent abatements, to a private company that could not meet its obligations. He thinks it is wonderful that public money was used to pay the wages of this company’s employees while they puttered around in a city-owned building. He evidently believes that giving my money away is a good idea. I disagree. A subsidized employee does not have a real job. That employee’s wages are paid by taxpayers. This is nothing more than redistribution of wealth. Your money was taken from you and given to someone else who produced nothing of value. The city of Roswell has already loaned over $2 million tax dollars to a local business, how many jobs did that create? And our city councilors are a real delight. One thinks he can “Tebow” a tax increase into existence. He evidently believes that God wants this tax increase. Another simply wishes he could mislead the public by calling a tax increase something other that what it is. Talk about hubris. These people really need to go, anywhere. No one has presented a plan for the money they want so badly, nor has anyone explained how we the people will benefit by giving our money to private industry. They have no plan, none at all. The mayor and his cronies just really, really want your money. This tax increase proposal should die, once and for all. Perhaps we need to drive a stake through its heart to make certain it stays dead. And we certainly should vote against anyone who believes, in spite of the mountain of evidence to the contrary, that raising taxes creates a business-friendly atmosphere, or that government officials are competent in the business world. These people are delusional. Please vote for someone else, anyone else. Businesses avoid New Mexico because of corruption, crime, poor schools which produce uneducated and unskilled workers, and an unfriendly tax structure. I don’t think raising taxes addresses these problems. Thank you, Rick Wolfert Roswell
Elected officials work for citizenry
Dear Editor: Fellow citizens, we have not been responsible business owners! Our employees become arrogant, rude, and in many cases, abusive. They are similar to overindulged children. They must have their way, and if we don’t approve their demands they keep returning with the same, or more, demands until they wear us down. In their opinion, they are educating us until they get their way. We are derelict by not remaining firm and reminding them they work for us. We have been taught to live within our means, or there will be serious consequences. Our employees overspend and are not living within our means. They adopt “continuing resolutions” to extend our spending. They travel First Class using our credit. They use their (our) offices for personal gain after they have left our employ. They seek higher office, or to retain their office while receiving full pay and benefits, yet they are not doing our work while campaigning. We must convince them we are very serious. Congress is at an all-time low in approval ratings. The administration is very low in approval ratings. Congress is not doing its job, yet, we continue to renew their contracts because, “my representative is wonderful.” Of course my representative is wonderful because he/she brings home the “pork.” The only problem is “What happens when we run out of money to buy the pig?” Is it right for our employees to take money from us to build the bridge to nowhere? Is it right to take money from the people of Iowa to build projects for us? Infrastructural improvements and capital expenditures must be based on prioritized needs and not on political and party patronage. We must start somewhere if we want our employees to work for us and stop having us work for the employees. If Congress and the administration cannot adopt a balanced budget, or at least a tenable budget (it would be nice if Congress would even adopt a budget) we should reduce their salaries, all the elected officials, the president, the House of Representatives and the Senate. We should cut their travel allowance and their per diem. “Fact finding” trips should be limited to a maximum number per year and limited to a small number of the committee and staff (spouses travel on personal funds not the taxpayers’) to go on these “fact finding” junkets. The taxpayers should not pay for vacations of the elected officials or their spouses. A friend suggested that when they are in Washington, D.C., they could be housed on military bases in the Washington area, as opposed to their plush townhouses and condominiums. There are meals available for them at the bases, medical facilities and the military has ample transportation vehicles. Of course, they could use their own car; take the Metro and local buses, just like the rest of the federal employees. Are they really above the average employee (a government “of the people”) a government made up of citizens. Their per diem should be adjusted to reflect the economy of the area they visit. A budget has not been adopted in more than 1,000 days. Surely, minds as brilliant as those who are working for us, and want to “educate” us, could adopt a budget instead of wasting weeks of our money to adopt yet another continuing resolution for two months. It is interesting that the continuing resolution is usually at the eleventh hour just prior to a “vacation” adjournment. This action gives the government the authority to extend spending for another two months. We don’t need extensions. We need a budget, a balanced budget. We need action to cut excessive spending. Our employees’ definition of cutting spending is to reduce the proposed future budget increase and not the current level of spending. Read George Orwell’s “1984.” Our employees would use tweezers when a chainsaw is required for adequate cutting. Fellow citizens, we have not been responsible employers. We have employees who want to educate us, fool us, and brainwash us while they are taking money from the cash register! We must stop rewarding this behavior. It is time all senators, representatives and the president know they are responsible to all the citizens of the United States of America and not the lobbyists, not the local self-interests, not their personal enrichment but to the citizens of the United States of America. This is not just at election time, but all the time. The platitudes and promises have far outweighed the action and performances of our elected officials. We must regain our role as employer and not the employees of the federal government. Respectfully, John Lankford Roswell

Changes needed to improve education HANNA SKANDERA EDUCATION SECRETARY-DESIGNATE
The passion for truly educating our children in New Mexico goes without question. I know this is true, despite our current ranking (48th in the nation). So it’s now time to take notice of our failing school system, examine the opportunities for positive change and give our public education system the chance to live up to its potential. And it’s time for our parents, our communities and our legislators to embrace the reforms necessary to make it so. In the past year I have visited nearly 50 of our 89 school districts. I have heard the resounding voices of adults and children — all eager to see our schools and students succeed. With each visit to every school, and in every classroom, I have witnessed the optimism, desir e and hope on the faces of every student across the state. Our students, educators and parents deserve to be recognized for their continued trust in our public school system and deserve to realize true progress as a result of their faith. There is no magic solution to our current status, but there are a few key initiatives that will have a lasting impact on our students’ futures. Two bills before the Legislature right now will, when passed, dramatically and positively impact our students. Bills to assess and advance reading proficiency (House Bill 69 and Senate Bill 96) are being considered by our legislators. The news media calls this initiative the
G Ge et t
“No Social Promotion” bill and while, yes, third-grade retention is part of it, that label demeans the bill’s true purpose and character. This initiative would, for the first time, gauge the reading skills of our children from kindergarten through the third grade, something many schools don’t do now. This provides us — parents, teachers, administrators — the opportunity to help our children with progr essive r eading intervention s years before they reach the third grade. We have proposed $17 million for this program. While this may seem like a large sum, the cost is insignificant in comparison to the cost to our childr en and their future if we fail to intervene on their behalves now. Only if they lear n to read will our children have the chance to excel in subjects like math, science and social studies, and be empowered in all aspects of their lives. We know if a child can’t read by the end of third grade, they are four times more likely to drop out of school. The second initiative now before the Legislature would re-design the system for evaluating our teachers and principals. We need to identify our greatest teachers, celebrate them and, yes, pay them mor e. New Mexico’s curr ent teacher evaluation system places nearly zero weight on student performance, which means that those teachers working miracles in our classrooms receive no credit for their heroic efforts. New Mexico teachers can reach the ceiling for pay in just seven years based only on years of expe-
rience and number of college degrees — not how successful they ar e in teaching our kids. Our teachers deserve the satisfaction of being rewarded for their efforts. If a teacher continues to demonstrate excellence through improved student achievement, then she or he deserves a system that continues to reward those strides. We all should expect, and our children deserve, an evaluation that ensures our students are learning and excelling. According to the 2011 Diplomas Count report, New Mexico loses 71 students every school day. When we say “lost,” we mean these students will fail to graduate with a diploma. These children are our loved ones, our neighbors, our future, and ultimately our responsibility. We cannot maintain the status quo — it’s not working. If we’re going to push education forward in New Mexico, we’re going to need to speak up for these reforms. If these ideas sound like the kind of reform you want for our children, I urge you to join us. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll keep you updated on opportunities to support these initiatives. And please don’t hesitate to call your legislator! I love this Land of Enchantment because of its rich culture, history and passionate people. These three factors play an enormous role in our education system. Let’s make sur e we continue to honor the diversity of our state, learn from our history and move forward with real change for our children.

NFL award season: Von Miller wins DROY INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has won a twoman race with 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith for the 2011 Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award. Miller, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, sparked a defensive turnaround in Denver with his steady and sometimes spectacular play. He teamed with quarterback Tim Tebow to energize the Broncos, who rallied from a 2-5 record to the AFC West title and a playoff win over Pittsburgh. “It’s special because you only get one rookie season,” Miller said. “You don’t get two tries at it. It’s really a oneand-done thing. That was probably the most special thing about it, you only get one shot to accomplish this feat.” Miller received 39 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. Smith, also a first-round choice, got the other 11. The awards were presented on an “NFL Honors” primetime special Saturday night on NBC. “Aldon and me are good friends. If he got it, I wouldn’t have been mad. That’s still like my buddy,” Miller said. “If anybody else would have gotten him, I probably would have been sick. But knowing him and knowing what kind of guy he is and spending time with him, I know what type of player he is and he deserved it, too.” The second Bronco to win the award — LB Mike Croel got it in 1991 — Miller made 64 tackles and had 11 1/2 sacks despite missing one game and playing the last four contests with a cumbersome cast protecting his surgically repaired right thumb. “The thumb is a setback,”
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Newton is the second straight No. 1 overall draft pick to take the honor in voting by a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league. Rams QB Sam Bradford won it last year. “I want to thank the man upstairs,” Newton said. The first Panther to take the award, Newton received 47 votes to three for Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton. The awards were presented on the “NFL Honors” primetime special Saturday night on NBC. Newton set an NFL record for touchdowns rushing in a season by a quarterback with 14 and became the first player in league history to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 500. He helped Carolina improve from 2-14 to 6-10, throwing for 21 touchdowns.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Spencer Levin remained in control in the Phoenix Open in front of the largest crowd in tournament history, shooting a 3-under 68 on Saturday to take a six-stroke lead into the final round. The crowd of 173,210 in perfect conditions at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course broke the record of 170,802 set in the third round in 2008. “It was fun for sure, but I was trying to focus, too,” Levin said about the huge crowd and party atmosphere. “You don’t get that too often, all those people cheering.” Levin, five strokes ahead after the completion of the second round Saturday morning, had four birdies and a bogey to reach 17 under. The bogey on the par5 15th was his first since the opening hole of the tournament. “I felt like I played solid,” Levin said. “I felt like I was in control of my ball most of the day, and yeah, I’m pleased. I’ve never had a big lead like that starting the day, and I thought I played well. Overall, I’m pleased about it.” Webb Simpson was 11 under after a 68. At No. 6 in the world, he’s the highestranked player in the field. “I feel good, but my swing is just not really getting in sync,” Simpson said. “I’m missing the ball left and right. I want to polish that up. But I made a bunch of good swings down the stretch that gave me a lot of confidence.” The 27-year -old Levin, remembered for a hole-inone and 13th-place tie in the 2004 U.S. Open at Shinnecock while still in school at New Mexico, is winless on the PGA Tour. He came close last year, losing a playoff to Johnson Wagner in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Last
week at Torrey Pines, Levin had a share of the firstround lead after a 62, but followed with rounds of 76, 73 and 72 to tie for 43rd. “Hopefully, I can just stay calm, try my best and keep having fun,” Levin said. “I’m going to try my best. That’s all I’m going to do, and we’ll see what happens.” Bubba Watson was seven strokes behind Levin after a 67. “He’s playing so good, you don’t expect him to come back in the field,” Watson said. “You’re going to have to go chase him down.” Tour rookie John Huh also was 10 under after a 69. Kyle Stanley was eight strokes back after a 69 as he tries to rebound from a devastating loss. On Sunday at Torrey Pines, he made a triple-bogey 8 on the final hole of regulation and lost to Brandt Snedeker in a playoff. Jason Dufner, second last year after a playoff loss to Mark Wilson, shot a 68 to join Stanley, Chris Stroud (66), Greg Chalmers (67) and Ben Crane at 9 under. Fan favorite Phil Mickelson was 8 under after a 67. The former Arizona State star won the tournament in 1996 and 2005. “I’d like to be further up, but given where I was 27 holes ago, I’m in a really good spot,” Mickelson said. “I’m starting to play some good golf, and I’m starting to get a little bit of momentum. I feel great with the putter.” Many players wore green clothing as part of title sponsor Waste Management’s green-out at TPC Scottsdale. Rickie Fowler was one of the greenest, dressing in matching dark green shirt, pants, shoes and a green and white hat. Levin didn’t follow the crowd, wearing a white shirt, visor and shoes and black pants.
Broncos coach John Fox said. “I mean, I can’t deny that. It affects what you can do with that one hand. I don’t have any doubts in my mind he would have shattered any types of records. With all due respect, I’m convinced he would have shattered any records if he’d have stayed 100 percent.”
Newton wins OROY
Lions QB Stafford wins CPOY
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL Comeback Player of the Year award. Stafford beat out six other players who received votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regular-
Spencer Levin opens 6-stroke lead in Phoenix Open
ly cover the league. Stafford fought through injuries his first two seasons, then threw for more than 5,000 yards in 2011 to lead Detroit to its first playoff berth in 12 years. He received 21 votes, six more than Cleveland linebacker D’Qwell Jackson. San Francisco quarterback Alex Smith finished third, followed by Carolina receiver Steve Smith, Denver defensive end Elvis Dumervil, New England defensive end Andre Carter and Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Stafford is the first Lion and the ninth quarterback to win the award since its inception in 1998. Stafford stressed the team’s success was more important than anything he did individually. Detroit made the playoffs for the first time since 1999. “That’s what people are judged on this time of year,” said Stafford, who added the Lions are capable of much more than just earning a wild-card berth and losing in the opening round. “”We have great talent around me. We’ve got it all. We’re still proving ourselves.” Stafford not only had a great comeback year from shoulder and knee injuries in his first two pro seasons, but he was exceptional at leading comebacks in games. He helped Detroit become the first team in NFL history to rally and win four games after being down by at least 13 points, including 20-plus point comebacks at Dallas and Minnesota. “He doesn’t waver,” receiver Nate Burleson said. “When you have a quarterback that isn’t worried, who always has a smile on his face and lets the ball release out of his hand like a cannon, you’re not worried at all. You look at him like he’s the captain of
the boat and if he’s ready to sail, we’re going to go to sea with him.”
49ers’ Jim Harbaugh wins Coach of Year
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — San Francisco’s Jim Harbaugh has won the 2011 Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year award for leading the 49ers back to the playoffs. In his first season as an NFL head coach, Harbaugh guided the 49ers to a 13-3 mark and the NFC West championship game. They beat New Orleans in the first round of the playoffs before losing the conference title game to the Giants. A former NFL quarterback and successful coach at Stanford, Harbaugh earned 45 votes from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. He easily outdistanced Green Bay’s Mike McCarthy, who received three votes, and Denver’s John Fox, who got two. Atlanta’s Mike Smith is the last man to win the award in his initial season as an NFL head coach, in 2008.

Husband concerned about wife’s contact with exes
Q: How do I deal with my wife’s continuing relationships with her exboyfriends? We have been married two years and she still likes to communicate with them. I trust my wife, but I don’t understand why she feels the need to keep reaching out to them. Juli: I think you are right to be concerned about this, even if you trust your wife. A person’s friendships with the opposite sex need to change after marriage. This is particularly true with exboyfriends or girlfriends. Even if the relationships are strictly platonic, they present the potential for a romantic relationship in the future. When you go through difficulty in your marriage, it will be too easy for your wife to confide in another man. While your wife needs the support and companion-
ship of close female friends, her friendships with men need to be more superficial and distant. Unfortunately, that is not a popular thing to say today. But guarding a marriage means protecting it from the potential of competing intimate relationships. I would ask your wife why she continues to communicate with her former boyfriends. Explain to her that it is important for you to be the one man she confides in. Tell her that this isn’t about trust. It’s about being her one and only. Q: My wife and I have been married for less than a year, and I was just diagnosed with cancer. Even more than my own health, I’m worried about what this means for our marriage. My wife didn’t sign up for this, and frankly, neither did I. Jim: I’m very sorry to

lear n of your diagnosis. Cancer is not an easy thing for any family, let alone newlyweds who are just beginning their jour ney together. Like most couples, when you pledged to love “in sickness and in health,” you were likely only thinking about the flu or the occasional broken bone. This diagnosis has cast a cloud over all of that. Author Erin Prater has developed a list of tips for dealing with a serious diagnosis as a couple. I hope you and your wife will take
it to heart as you look to what lies ahead: 1) Accept offers of help. If you’re involved with a church or a close group of friends, you’ll likely receive more assistance than you know what to do with.

BY LEANNE ITALIE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK (AP) — They’ve bitten their handlers, refused to budge from their beds and lost their shadow-casting jobs to potbellied pigs. And it turns out, not all groundhogs are really that good at predicting the weather. Not even Bill Murray as a movie weatherman escaped a couple of nips from the furry rodents on the set of his popular “Groundhog Day” that put the annual shadow or no shadow ritual on a loop in 1993. “Of course, the groundhog’s most glaring offense is that its legendary weather predictions are complete bunk,” said Linda Lombardi, a former zookeeper who has a blog and a book called “Animals Behaving Badly.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration analyzed the forecasts of groundhog prognosticators from 1988 to 2010 and concluded there was no correlation between predictions and the length of winter weather in a given year. Bad forecasting aside, history has a few ugly moments involving groundhog misbehavior on the big day, when designated groundhogs — and some
notable surrogates — are supposed to step into the sun each Feb. 2 and predict six more weeks of winter, or not. Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow, winter will last for six more weeks. As always, the biggest Groundhog Day ruckus (Thursday will be the 126th) centers on prima donna Punxsutawney Phil, the seer of seers, sage of sages, prognosticator of prognosticators in Pennsylvania, who hasn’t always kept his pointy nose clean of misdeeds. “Phil is not a pet. Phil is truly not as warm and cuddly as perhaps you would want him to be. Phil is, in fact, a wild animal,” said Mike Johnston, vice president of Phil’s Inner Circle in Punxsutawney, where Groundhog Day began. “He will make his feelings known with a nip, maybe a couple of nips. If his handler continues to do things that displease him he’s likely to nail you,” Johnston said. Sound familiar, Mayor Michael Bloomberg? Charles G. Hogg, aka Staten Island Chuck, chomped on the mayor’s left index finger in 2009 when Bloomberg tried to coax him into the open using an ear of corn.
“We try not to speak of it,” said Mary Lee Montalvo, a spokeswoman for Chuck’s stomping ground, the Staten Island Zoo. “They have tried to make up. They’ve done a pretty good job. We’ve had no incidents since. I think Chuck thought the mayor was taking his food.” Bloomberg decided on industrial-strength gloves the following year. “I think they’re both feisty,” Montalvo said. The mayor was back by Chuck’s side Thursday for another go-round. A handful of other groundhog forecasters have tidy criminal records, including Gen. Beauregard Lee at the Yellow River Game Ranch in Lilburn, outside of Atlanta. The difference is nobody lays hands on the general, said Stefanie Reeves, his publicist. “He comes out on his own, or he doesn’t. We don’t control him. He controls us,” she said. The St. Louis Zoo gave up on Groundhog Day a year or so ago after their resident Lilly first refused to leave her burrow, then died of old age in 2009. In the ’80s, the zoo had Puck, who according to news accounts ran away right before Groundhog
Day in 1989, after two years of faulty forecasts. A potbellied pig named Bacon was deputized in 1996, when the zoo ran out of groundhogs. Groundhog Day was once a big deal in Niagara, Ky., where another potbellied pig, Arnold, was trotted out to make the prediction after the resident groundhog ate his way out of his cage. In New Jersey, the Franklin Township area’s groundhog lodge disbanded after 15 years in 2005 after J.B., which stands for Just Because, went missing from his burrowing grounds on a farm. The rodent hasn’t shown his shadow since. On Thursday, up to 18,000 people were expected to gather at Gobbler’s Knob to see what Punxsutawney Phil had to say about winter. And Johnston scoffed at the scientists who suggest the groundhog can’t predict the weather. Phil is never wrong, he says because somewhere and Phil doesn’t say where — winter is either going to end, or go on. “He is not burdened with the necessity to be site-specific,” Johnston said. “If you question the science, perhaps you’ve missed the point.”
BY DEAN FOSDICK FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hand weeding is one of the most demanding chores in gardening, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Mulching, spraying, plant crowding and inexpensive stand-up tools can ease much of the back-straining work. And the time to plan for it is now, before you use any of that homemade compost or build your budget for planting supplies. Weeds generally are considered the thugs of the garden because they steal sun, water and nutrients that you’re trying to direct toward edibles and ornamentals. They often appear unsightly and out of place.
But weeds have a positive place in nature. They can be used to prevent soil erosion, provide food and cover for pollinators, and supply organic matter to depleted ground. Despite all that, it may be necessary to do some hand weeding around the yard. And there are ways to save time and effort doing it. Weed after it rains, when the ground is softer and weeds are easier to pull. Weed when the plants are small. Weed whenever and wherever you see them pop up, at any time of year. Or try: — Crowding your favorite plants. “The lazy man’s guide to gardening is to plant your flowers so tight
there isn’t room enough for any weeds to compete,” Pierson said. — Mulching. “Compost and leaves can smother weeds while making your soil healthier,” Pierson said. Solarization, or spreading plastic sheets or “geotextiles” over the ground, also prevents unwanted germination. — Using the right tools. Long-handled hoes, string trimmers and propanefueled “flamers” have helped gardeners avoid many an aching back. But be careful about where you direct those flames. Leaves and wood mulch are combustible combinations. — Spraying with synthetic herbicides. Weed-killing chemicals have proven
effective, but don’t overdo it. Targeting the spray rather than broadcasting it, and timing applications for windless days should reduce some of the ecological hazards. “Many people are using corn gluten now, which is more responsible for our groundwater,” Pierson said.

VISTAS WEDDING POLICY The Daily Record now charges for wedding, engagement and anniversary announcements. The charges will be $12 for the first 8 column inches of text and 18 cents a line thereafter. A photo is $5. Wedding, engagement and anniversary announcement forms are available at the RDR offices, 2301 N. Main St. Anniversary announcements for page C2 in Sunday editions are for couples celebrating their 25th anniversary and are then published in five-year intervals up to the 60th anniversary. Couples celebrating 60 or more years are eligible every year. Couples with anniversaries less than 25 years, or those with anniversaries not falling on the five-year intervals, will have the option of placing the announcement on page C2 on Sundays, or the A section any day of
the week. Anniversary announcements may be accompanied by two photographs. The deadline for submission of anniversary, engagement or wedding announcements is at noon the Wednesday before the desired Sunday of publication. Anniversary announcements are for couples celebrating at least their 25th anniversary, and are then published in five-year intervals up to the 60th anniversary. Couples celebrating 60 or more years of marriage are eligible every year. A photograph can accompany an anniversary, engagement or wedding announcement. The deadline for submission of anniversary, engagement or wedding announcement is at noon on the Wednesday before the desired Sunday of publication.
This project involves using recycled products along with paints to create beautiful jewelry. The base of the jewelry is chipboard, or a piece of cardboard (not corrugated.) You can use pre-cut chipboard pieces or cut your own – or use both. 1. Coat all pieces, front and back, with black acrylic paint.
2. When dry, coat all pieces with a mixture of gold and copper paints. Allow to dry. Gently rub a bit of the metallic paint off most pieces to reveal a bit of the black underneath. 3. Using the end of a small paintbrush, pound it over and over into the painted pieces to create the “old worked metal” look. 4. Using blue and green acrylic paints, dab a bit of each color on some of the pieces to create a patina effect. 5. Using needle nose pliers, separate pieces of old chains and connect
them to individual pieces of jewelry with holes already pierced in them.
6. Build a necklace and bracelet by putting pieces together as desired, connecting with rings and chain sections. Create earrings to match.

LeMar said the construction industry already is hurting with too few people pounding nails. construction “The industry can’t keep up. Most motels are booked three years straight, from the moment they opened,” he said. Meeting attendees said that some of the boom downsides perhaps seem trivial, such as having to wait a half-hour for a fastfood meal, but they affect their daily lives. Hammerstrom acknowledged that the possibilities are “exciting but scary, too. You don’t know what to expect until you live it.” Shawn Wenko, a panelist and assistant director of the Economic Development Office in Williston, N.D., said the boom has brought jobs in all skill levels. Though oil is the No. 1 industry, agriculture and retail contribute to the economy, he said. Other job openings are in emergency services, medicine, education and dentistry. “We’re seeing a boom of population while for generations or decades we saw a decline,” Wenko said. “The younger generation is now moving back. In northwest North Dakota, your graduates from there left in the 1990s because there were no opportunities. Now, they’re fighting to get back.”
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Hewlett-Packard Co. ushered in Meg Whitman as its CEO with a $16.5 million compensation package that hinges on the one-time politician’s ability to lift the stumbling technology company’s stock price during the next two years. Last year’s pay consists almost entirely of 1.9 million stock options valued at $16.1 million, according to documents filed Friday. Whether Whitman ever gets an opportunity to cash in most the options will depend on whether
HP’s market value rises substantially from its depressed level when HP fired her predecessor, Leo Apotheker, as CEO last September. HP disclosed Whitman would be getting the stock options shortly after her hiring, but didn’t specify their value at that time. The company, which is based in Palo Alto, also had previously disclosed Whitman’s salary would be limited to $1 while she tries to rebuild the momentum that HP lost after ousting Mark Hurd as its CEO in a titillating
scandal in 2010. Apotheker fared even better than Whitman, partly because of a severance package that paid him more than $12 million in cash and allowed him to keep most of the stock awards that he got while he was CEO. Including the salary and perks that Apotheker received while he was still HP’s CEO, his 2011 compensation package was valued at $26.7 million. That figure excludes a $3.7 million stock incentive that HP canceled as part of Apotheker’s severance
agreement. If Whitman succeeds in her mission at HP, she could use the windfall from the stock options to offset her losses from her unsuccessful attempt to become California’s governor in 2010. During that campaign as the Republican nominee, she spent more than $140 million of her own money. Before entering the political arena, Whitman was best known as the CEO of eBay Inc. during the dot-com boom. She did so well there that she was a billionaire by the
time she left the e-commerce company in 2008. HP faces challenges on multiple fronts. Its personal computer division is trying to adapt to consumers’ growing preference for tablet and other mobile devices. Its operations that sell servers and consulting services to big companies locked in a battle with IBM Corp. and Oracle Corp. Although the stock has climbed since Whitman took over, it remains 37 percent below its price when Hurd left the company in August 2010.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — General Motors Co. said Saturday that most of its 4,400 U.S. dealers have agreed to upgrade their showrooms over the next four years. The upgrades include new signs, more modern interiors and lounges with free Wi-Fi. In some cases, dealers might also open cafes or salons. The company announced its plans at the National Automobile Dealers Association convention in Las Vegas. GM said 3,400 dealers have agreed to upgrades, and 1,000 have been completed. GM said it also plans to
give dealerships more sales and service training and encourage them to do more online marketing. If they meet all the upgraded standards, they’ll receive quarterly payments, spokesman Tom Henderson said. Henderson said 36 percent of GM’s stores were built before 1970. “We’re investing in our retail network because today’s new-vehicle customer expects a shopping experience to match the character of the brand they’re considering,” said GM North America President Mark Reuss. But some dealers question the costs, which can
approach $1 million per dealer. They say the expense would be particularly difficult for smaller dealers. The National Automobile Dealers Association released a study Saturday recommending that auto companies better explain the need for the upgrades. It also suggests that costs could be lowered if discounts were negotiated with construction companies or if dealers could use different, but comparable, materials. The association also said companies and dealers need to jointly research and determine future trends that could
affect dealerships. Dealers might be able to have smaller properties with fewer cars on their lots as people increasingly shop for and order cars online, for example. The study also suggested that as car quality improves, dealers might need fewer service bays or put them on different sites. “The world is changing,” said Glenn Mercer, an independent automotive analyst hired by the association to do the study, which polled 75 dealers, automakers and buyers. Timothy Kool, who owns two GM dealerships in southwest Michigan, said GM is evaluating his deal-
erships and deciding whether he can keep the floor tile he installed nine years ago. Though the tile is the right color, its dimensions don’t meet GM’s specifications for upgraded facilities. “It’s frustrating,” Kool said. “There’s not one bit of evidence that because my tile is the same as other dealerships, my sales will improve.” GM isn’t the only carmaker asking dealers to upgrade their facilities. Ford Motor Co. said last week that 75 of its Lincoln dealers have already done major renovations of their facilities, and more have agreed to future upgrades.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In an effort to cut the unemployment rate among veterans, President Barack Obama is calling for a new conservation program that would put veterans to work rebuilding trails, roads and levees on public lands. The president also will seek more grant money for programs that allow local communities to hire more police officers and firefighters. “Let’s get more cops on the beat, let’s get more rangers in the parks, let’s get more firefighters on call, and in the process, we’re going to put more veterans back to work,” Obama said Friday at a fire station in Arlington, Va., that was one of the first to respond to the attack on the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001. “They’ve already risked their lives defending America. They should have the opportunity to rebuild America,” he said. The ef forts, which Obama first announced in his State of the Union address last week, are particularly geared to those veterans who served after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a group experiencing an unemployment rate of 9.1 percent, versus 8.7 percent for non-veterans, according to the government’s jobs report for January. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said the Civilian Conservation Corps that operated during the 1930s could be viewed as a model for what the administration will try to accomplish through its “Veterans Jobs Corps.” He said that the administration will propose spending $1 billion over five years that would be used to put an estimated 20,000 veterans to work restoring habitat and eradicating invasive species, among other activities. “When one looks back at the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps, we take great comfort that those who take on these kinds of activities will leave a lasting legacy for the United States,” Salazar said. The backdrop of presidential politics is also playing a role in the Obama administration’s new efforts. Several states that will be heavily contested in November have a significant military presence. Veterans will be evaluating specific ways the next White House administration intends to help them. Communities that hire veterans to work as police and firefighters will be given preference in the grants competition. Obama will also seek to increase spending for the grants programs. He is proposing an additional $4 billion for the Community Oriented Policing Services program, or COPS. He will propose an additional $1 billion for the firefighter grants. The administration will also propose a training program designed to help veterans wanting to start their own small businesses.

DEAR ABBY: I’m 30 years old and have a close relationship with my mother, but something is bothering me. When I was a little girl, my grandmother gave me a U.S. savings bond for my birthday. It has matured to its full value. My mother refuses to give it to me. She said that my grandmother intended it as a wedding gift. The last time I brought it up, she got teary and emotional. When my grandmother died 18 years ago, it was tremendously painful for my mother. I think the reason Mom won’t give me the money is it makes her feel like her mom is still around. By letting go of the bond,
DEAR “CHILD”: Your grandmother gave you the savings bond as a BIRTHDAY gift. When you became an adult, it should have been given to you then. You’re a big girl now, and whether you decide to marry or not it should be yours to do with as you wish. It’s time to hand your mother a large box of tissues and have a
heart-to-heart talk with her about that savings bond. Don’t let her off the hook, and don’t be surprised if she finally admits she spent the money. #####
DEAR ABBY: How does one let a gum chewer know, tactfully, that the smell is revolting? Besides the irritation and rudeness of chewing/popping with one’s mouth open, certain smells often affect me physically. From a young age, I have suffered from migraine headaches, which can bring on temporary loss of vision and vomiting. The scent of certain mints — like spearmint — triggers migraines. My doctor has warned me to avoid these triggers. However, in a confined area like an airplane, or sandwiched between two chewers at a concert, it’s impossible. I become violently ill from the smell. I have tried politely explaining my situation, but the chewer is often indifferent, indignant or unsympathetic. Abby, I’m at a loss. My husband and I often leave concerts we were looking forward to because of this

In a theater, the first thing you should do is explain the problem to the gum chewer just as you did to me. Say that the smell of certain mints triggers migraines that sometimes result in spontaneous vomiting, and ask if the person can dispose of the gum before you become ill. If the person refuses, ask an usher to seat you elsewhere.
When you’re on an airplane and trapped in similar circumstances, get up and ask a flight attendant to locate a seat for you that’s far enough away so you won’t be affected.

Dear Heloise: Thank you for all the helpful hints you have shared in the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal. I remember the hint about how to clean a DISHWASHER with a stained interior. The reader told us to run two packages of lemon drink mix through a cycle in the dishwasher. It worked! My son has a dishwasher with a stainless-steel interior. Will lemon drink mix clean it, or would you suggest something else? Frances in North Carolina
Frances, thanks for the nice words, and I love your newspaper. Don’t you love simple hints that work? The lemon drink mix works because it contains citric acid. Some manufacturers recommend not using citric acid with a stainless-steel interior, but the small amount in the drink mix should be fine. You also can use my tried-andtrue vinegar method. Turn the dishwasher on (no detergent) and let the bottom fill with water. Stop the cycle. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in, close the dishwasher door and let sit for 30 minutes before finishing the cycle. Make sure to check your owners manual for recommendations. If you cannot find it, try looking online for your model. Want to know what else you can clean with vinegar?

Olympics, World Cup preparation bring evictions Roswell Daily Record
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Like most Brazilians, Evandro dos Santos’ devotion to soccer borders on the religious. Even when he wasn’t watching a game, he loved hearing the roar of the crowd in nearby Maracana stadium — this nation’s temple to the sport. But Santos says he’ll never set foot in the place again. Rio de Janeiro is giving the stadium’s neighborhood a $63.2 million facelift as it prepares to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. Maracana will be the jewel crowning both events, with the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics and the final World Cup matches held within its storied blue and gray walls. The shantytown where Santos has lived with his family for 19 years, known as Favela do Metro, does not fit in that picture. It’s being bulldozed; hundreds of families have been bought out as part of a “revitalization” process for the big events and the hordes of foreigners they will draw. “They’re destroying our neighborhood for a game,” Santos said, standing in the convenience store and bar he runs in the front of his family’s house. All across Rio, people are being pushed out of their homes in dozens of communities like Metro to make way for new roads, Olympic venues and other projects. Documents obtained by The Associated Press show

A homeless man sleeps where houses were demolished in the Favela do Metro, Brazil, Wednesday. that in 2010 alone, the municipal housing authority made 6,927 payments for resettlement costs, rent supplements or buy-outs to people in 88 communities across Rio. Nationwide, about 170,000 people are facing threats to their housing, or already have been removed, in the 12 cities that will host World Cup matches, according to the Coalition of Popular Committees for the World Cup and the Olympics, an advocacy group for residents of the affected shantytowns. The evictions in Rio de Janeiro are similar to those in other cities that hosted the Games and World Cup, but pale in comparison to some. Before the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, rights groups said 720,000 people were forcibly displaced. In the run-up to the 2008
Olympics in Beijing, some activists said more than 1 million people were forced from their homes to make way for the new venues built, and some protesters were jailed. The office of Rio’s municipal housing authority chief, Jorge Bittar, responded to repeated inquiries from the AP about removals with a statement saying that “resettling has been done in the most democratic way possible, respecting the rights of each family.” It said officials explain to each family the value of their property, and then offer a choice from several options: a home in a federal housing project in the place of their choosing, a stipend of up to $230 a month to rent a home they find themselves, compensation for their house, or assistance in purchasing anoth-
er house. Residents of Metro and lawyers tell a dif ferent story. Standing in the bar he runs in the shantytown, Santos gestured at the layer of bricks, twisted metal and broken plaster that surrounds his home. Across the street, next door, even on the floor above, homes have been demolished. Nobody in Metro knows for sure what’s in store for the slum. The housing authority’s statement said only that the “area around the stadium will be totally revitalized.” Metro, established in the 1970s by railroad workers building an adjacent rail line, is one of thousands of communities across Latin America that were created as workers from the countryside moved to cities and threw up precarious shan-
tytowns on any vacant land they could find. Brazilian law gives property rights to residents who peacefully occupy land. Initially, residents were offered government-built housing in a working-class suburb 45 miles away, with poor access to transportation and jobs. About 100 families accepted, under duress. Another 100 or so took the offer that followed: resettlement in a closer housing project. Compensation paid per home for the removals in 2010 averaged $16,000. The amount varies according to the size and quality of a structure. The money offered is not nearly enough to find another home in Rio, said Eliomar Coelho, a city councilman heading an investigation into removals. Market studies say Rio’s real estate is now among
Villa destroyed by Nazis, WWII, will reopen soon BRNO, Czech Republic (AP) — It was completed in 1930, a Modernist masterpiece by legendary German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. But Villa Tugendhat’s history was rocked by the turbulence of the 20th century: The Nazis seized it, then World War II bombardments smashed its windows. When the Soviet troops liberated Czechoslovakia, living space became a large stable. It has languished in disrepair ever since. Now, a two-year renovation that cost $9 million is almost complete. In March, the glass-fronted building that houses a thick, honey-colored onyx wall, floor-to-ceiling windows, winter garden and clean white lines throughout will be open to the public. “It’s been a huge challenge,” said Michal Malasek, whose construction company was tasked with the daunting challenge of refurbishing the villa while staying faithful to its design. “I have never worked on anything of such prestige.” Some 80 percent of the villa’s original features have been preserved, making it “the most authentic Mies van der Rohe building on the European continent,” said Iveta Cerna, an architect from Brno’s municipal museum who has looked after the villa since 2002. Good fortune played its part: An original bathtub, missing since the 1940s, was found in a nearby house; and a curved wall of Macassar ebony was discovered at a dining hall inside Brno’s Law School where it had been taken to spruce up a bar built for Nazi officers. Br no experienced a building boom in the late 1920s that reflected the growing confidence of the city in the independent Czechoslovakia, created in 1918. Grete and Fritz Tugendhats, co-owners of wool factories and part of a large German-speaking Jewish community in the city, were able to commission the home of their
This photo taken Jan. 25 shows an outside view of the Tugendhat Villa in Brno, Czech Republic. The famous modern villa designed by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and completed in 1930 has undergone a major two-year refurbishment and is set to open to the public March 6.
dreams from Mies van der Rohe. “I truly longed for a modern spacious house with clear, simple shapes,” Grete Tugendhat said in a 1969 lecture in Brno. Her husband died in 1958 and never saw it again after the Jewish family fled Czechoslovakia in 1938, a year before the Nazis took power. Grete Tugendhat came back from her home in Switzerland to visit the house several times, first in 1967. She died in 1970. Efforts by the family to claim their former property back after the collapse of communism in 1989 failed. After the war, the building hosted a private dance school before it was taken over by the communist Czechoslovakia in 1950; it served as a rehabilitation center for children with spine defects till the end of 1960s. The city of Brno has been its owner since 1980. On a recent sunny day, workers were polishing the staircase of Italian white travertine that leads from the terrace to the garden. In the living space, the curved ebony wall was wrapped in cloth to prevent any damage. In winter months, when the sun is low and its beams are penetrating the onyx wall at the right angle, it
changes its color in some parts to shine in orange and dark red hues. “We know from Grete that Mies himself was surprised by this unique effect,” said Cer na, the Br no architect. “(The house’s) charm is in the changes. It changes with weather, it looks different each season of the year. “I am always surprised by light condition here.” Combining a design of pure geometric forms with advanced technologies and exotic materials, Mies van der Rohe satisfied the owners’ wish for innovation and originality. The three-story building with a flat roof occupies the top of a steep garden that faces southwest. Some replica parts had to be obtained in the past two years: Huge glass panes, one-centimeter (0.39 inch) thick, were made in Belgium while the white linoleum that originally covered the floor was provided by the same German company that made it more than 80 years ago. Fritz and Grete Tugendhat lived in the villa with their three children for eight years in the 1930s. Grete said she fell in love with it “from the first moment.” One of their daughters, Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat, now works as a professor of art history at the
University of Applied Arts in Vienna. “For me, this is actually the most beautiful interior room in modern architecture,” she told AP. “Usually, it’s only in old churches that a room has such a meditative effect.” Hammer -Tugendhat and her husband are leading members of an international committee of experts overseeing the villa’s reconstruction, cofinanced by the city, EU funds and the state. The villa’s central living open space has its south and east walls made of huge steel-frame windows that allow a magnificent view of Brno’s historical monuments. Mies van der Rohe also designed the furniture, including his famed chairs, and equipped the building with air conditioning and security systems. In 1938, the Tugendhats had to leave the country to escape the Nazis, first for Switzerland and later for Venezuela. Mies van der Rohe, whose work did not meet Hitler’s taste for monumental architecture, also fled the Nazis, purportedly using his brother’s passport to get out of Germany. He settled in Chicago to work for the Illinois Institute of Technology and designed a number of
significant buildings in his new land, including Lake Shore Apartments in Chicago, the Farnsworth House in Plano, Illinois, the Seagram Building in New York City and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Washington D.C. He died in 1969. The Gestapo seized the building after invading Czechoslovakia and — insensitive to the original design — made changes, including erecting several extra walls inside and outside and increasing the height of the chimney. During the liberation by the Red Army in 1945, the living space was used as a stable for the of ficers’ horses — and all but one of the shelves of a huge ebony bookcase was burned. The Communists, who took power here in 1948, tried their hand at renovating the villa in the 1980s — but did more harm than good. The original bathroom equipment and the sole remaining pane of a wall of glass were destroyed because they didn’t fit their plan. The deal that split Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1992 was signed in the villa, adding to its historical significance. The idea to restore the villa dates back to 2001 when UNESCO declared it a world heritage site. Copies of original plans and photographs from the MoMA in New York City as well documents from family and from Brno archives, including pictures taken by Fritz Tugendhat, were used to help restore the building. City of ficials now are trying to buy the original furniture from the families that own them. “It would be something extraordinary to get them all,” said Br no mayor Roman Onderka. A grand opening is scheduled for Feb. 29 and the villa will be reopen to the public March 6. Officials said they have already been flooded by requests from potential visitors.
the most expensive in the Americas. Alexandre Mendes, until recently head of the housing rights unit of the Rio state public defenders office, contends the relocation process is riddled with illegalities. In the case of the Restinga slum, which made way for the new T ransoeste highway across Rio’s west side, Mendes was awakened by residents’ calls in the middle of the night. It was just before Christmas 2010, he said. He got there at 2:30 a.m. and saw heavy machinery tearing down houses. If people refused to leave, walls were knocked down with them still inside, he said. “The brutality of that moment, I can describe because I was there and I saw it,” he said. Metro’s people know all this. Santos knows, for example, of one resident who ran a paper goods store out of his home, and got $4,060 in compensation. It’s not enough to build a new home and store elsewhere, so Santos is not giving up on his own property. He’s pinning his hopes on a rumor that of the community’s 126 businesses, 40 will remain. Maybe he’ll be one of the 40. “I have built something here — a house, a business,” Santos said. “That’s what I want. Not a gift, not charity. I want to keep on working and earning my money and feeding my family.”
Men’s underwear getting a little extra attention
NEW YORK (AP) — Some things are fashion, and some are necessity. Where do men’s undergarments fall? Increasingly, right in the middle. There’s a guaranteed market that needs to replenish supplies no matter what the economy is doing. But innovation in style and technology has made boxers, briefs and undershirts that were once an afterthought into a buzz-worthy category of men’s clothes. So much so that H&M is debuting ads for its new undergarment collection by David Beckham during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and Jockey wasted no time signing football star Tim Tebow as its new spokesman. It makes sense as a growth category, says Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst with market research firm The NPD Group, but it took the right conditions to get on the fashion industry’s radar: streamlined design, comfortable stretch fabrics, the idea that dressing starts at the base layer and that shabbychic doesn’t cut it anymore. Men, in general, aren’t as interested in fleeting trends, he adds. They are, however, willing to buy an “evolved” product if they need to replace an old one. And, Cohen says, as has happened with smartphones or athletic apparel, sometimes men will trade up if they think there’s genuine newness. It’s a purchase men are likely to make for themselves, although creating products that appeal to women — either on a business level or a more personal one — is a factor, and that’s why you’ll see models such as sports figures as top ambassadors, he says. “Undergarments are relatively inexpensive so everyone can participate,” Cohen says. “It’s something that’s easy for a woman to buy for a guy, something for the guy to buy for himself, there’s need. It hits a large swath of demographics.”

Food Network, book take on weight in chef whites
NEW YORK (AP) — Paula Deen’s diabetes revelation pretty much sums it up: Kitchen pros at all levels struggle with obesity and its dangerous aftertaste in the high-pressure, highcalorie world of food. The queen of Southern comfort cooking, now a spokeswoman for a diabetes drugmaker’s health initiative, announced last week that she hid her Type 2 diabetes for about three years while continuing to cook up deep-fried cheesecake and bacon-and-egg burgers between doughnuts on TV. Choosing to digest her ill health privately all those years, Deen’s story is familiar to those in chef’s jackets who already had gone public with the question few in their world love to talk about: How do you stay healthy while trying to earn a living making food? On Thursday, a dozen obese chefs, restaurant owners, caterers and others will search for the answer. That’s when the Food Network premieres “Fat Chef,”
which follows participants for 16 weeks as they struggle to lose weight and learn a healthier way of life with the help of trainers, nutritionists and therapists. “You have this abundance of food all around you,” said pastry chef Michael Mignano, who’s
one of the dozen. “You’re doing parties, you have weddings. There’s always a lot of food left over. You’re constantly tasting, working late hours, eating late.” Mignano, 36, owns a bakery in Port Washington, N.Y. At 6 foot 2, he weighed about 500 pounds soon
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis parade welcoming home Iraq War and other post-Sept. 11 veterans was such a hit that at least 10 other cities around the country are considering similar celebrations. Organizers of the parade that drew an estimated 100,000 observers and 20,000 participants in St. Louis on Jan. 28 said Friday that they have been approached by people from Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Seattle, Tucson, Ariz., Nashville, Tenn., Greensboro, N.C., and Clinton, Iowa. “The revolution for America to rally in support of
our troops has just begun,” said Tom Appelbaum, who along with his friend, Craig Schneider, came up with the idea for the St. Louis parade and pulled it of f within a month. The St. Louis parade was the first major event honoring post-Sept. 11 veterans since the war in Iraq ended in December. Alan Toppel, a 79-yearold retired businessman from Tucson, was in St. Louis Friday to gather information on organizing a similar parade. “When I saw that this parade was done, and the magnitude of the parade, I was thinking that this is something we can do in
Tucson,” he said. “This is something we need to do in Tucson.” He will meet with city officials next week and is moving toward the goal of hosting a parade by the end of March. The St. Louis parade drew a festive and often emotional crowd. Firetruck aerial ladders hoisted huge American flags over the parade route. Marching bands played “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful.” Even the Budweiser Clydesdales clopped along the route. The loudest cheers, though, were for the troops themselves, many marching in camouflage. Some

after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2010, before “Fat Chef” went into production last October. His resolve to do something about his weight grew stronger as the result of a dif ferent Food Network show on which he appeared in September, “Sweet
Genius.” “I wasn’t nervous about that show, but I was nervous about whether the jacket would fit me,” said Mignano, who now weighs about 400 pounds and has a long road ahead to reach his goal weight of 250. “Watching myself on that show, I was the fat guy. That’s all I saw. I felt almost like a drunk seeing himself on the floor passed out.” Art Smith, who doesn’t appear on the show, is a child of fried chicken and other Southern staples like his old pal Deen. Like Deen, he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about three years ago. Also 6 foot 2, Smith ballooned to 325 pounds while gorging on refined sugar, caffeine, PB&Js — anything that gave him an instant energy boost or filled him up at the end of an exhausting day as a chef for Oprah Winfrey. Exercise? He could barely walk a block, until he decided to tur n it all around and lost 118
pounds. Now 51, the Jasper, Fla., native, restaurant owner, cookbook author and food TV personality has kept the weight off. Allison Adato, a senior editor and former food beat writer for People magazine, is out in April with a book, “Smart Chefs Stay Slim,” offering insights and tips from three dozen of the biggest names in the industry. “Paula Deen’s revelation may mark a turning point for some viewers and diners,” Adato said. “My hope is that this moment creates a broader awareness that the way a person eats does have an impact on his or her health.” Deen, who’s made a lucrative living as a TV chef by going over the top with butter, cream and sugar, faced a torrent of criticism when she disclosed her diabetes diagnosis and her contract to lend her face and recipes to “Diabetes in New Light,” a project of the drugmaker Novo Nordisk.
More cities consider parades for Iraq War veterans
Stephanie King holds a picture of her uncle, Col. Stephen Scott, who was killed in Iraq in 2008, as she prepares for a parade to honor Iraq War veterans Jan. 28, in St. Louis. had tears in their eyes as well-wishers reached out to shake hands or give them
hugs. Schneider and Appelbaum said the idea began
in December with a simple conversation between the two of them about why there were no big celebrations to mark the end of the Iraq War. So they donations, sought launched a Facebook page, met with the mayor and mapped a route. The grassroots effort cost less than $40,000. Some questioned if a parade was even appropriate given the ongoing war against terrorism and the continued deployment of 91,000 troops in Afghanistan. Many of the Iraq War vets interviewed at the St. Louis parade conceded they might be redeployed to Afghanistan.

Your ingenuity can forge interesting ideas, make a project work and/or solve a personal matter. Lose the word “no” from your vocabulary. Tonight: Let this same energy flow into the night. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Could you be restricting your thinking? Consider the possibility. Instead of slamming doors shut or thinking in either/or terms, make a situation possible. Often, choices are self-imposed. You can do what you want and please someone else. Tonight: Cocoon a little. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Keep doors open, and continue to encourage a conversation. You might not agree with a loved one, nor do you need to. Respect where this person is coming from and understand your longterm goals for the two of you, and you won’t encounter any problems. Tonight: Hanging out is fun to do. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Issues surrounding funds or a financial matter come up, forcing some

Zero in on what you want. Another person’s unpredictability marks a decision. Tonight: Where people are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are on top of your game.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You think in terms of success through employing another approach. You might wonder why you often get a certain result. Remain sensitive to a family member who could be acting in an erratic manner right now. You see another person in a new light. Tonight: Go along with a loved one’s desires. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) When everyone starts acting on his or her desires, you start smiling. You like unpredictability, which you seem to be drawing into your life right now. Establishing limits might be important, too. Tonight: You, too, can be spontaneous. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Pace yourself, knowing the limits of a situation and your energy.

Soul Train fans bop on Broadway in Cornelius fete NEW YORK (AP) — Fans of “Soul T rain” boogied down Broadway wearing afro wigs and bell bottoms on Saturday while others recounted their favorite episodes at a Harlem meeting hall in tribute to the show’s late creator, Don Cornelius. About 100 dancers descended on T imes Square in a “flash mob” organized through the Inter net. As startled tourists looked on, they recreated one of the show’s “Soul Train lines” in which people would take turns dancing toward a TV camera while showing off their most outrageous moves. “Don Cornelius was a big influence in my life, and I just wanted to pay tribute,” said disc jockey Jon Quick, as he held up a speaker blasting disco grooves. “He was playing the music that nobody else wanted to play. He was an amazing man.” Cornelius, 75, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday. He had suffered from health problems, a dif ficult divorce, and had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor spousal battery charge in 2009. But on Saturday fans praised Cornelius’ vision in creating, hosting and selling “Soul Train” to television stations that were originally skeptical about programming aimed at blacks. The show aired from 1971 to 2006. “Don Cornelius brought soul to the whole world,” said Ramona Hamm, 37, who came to Times Square with her 9-year-old daughter, Kayla Charles. The dancers bounced down Broadway for about 45 minutes until police told the party to disperse. In Harlem, activist Al Sharpton led a tribute to Cornelius as part of the weekly community meeting at the headquarters of his National Action Network. In 1974, a 19-yearold Sharpton appeared on “Soul Train” to present an award to musician James Brown. Singer Roberta Flack said Cor nelius was an inspiration to other black performers and entrepreneurs. “He didn’t have a great big light telling him, ‘Go over here, don’t go over there, watch where you step, there’s a hole right there,”’ Flack said. “He stepped.” For mer “Soul T rain”
Participants of a “Soul Train” line flash mob make their way along the line during a tribute to “Soul Train” creator Don Cornelius Saturday in New York’s Times Square.
dancer Tyrone Proctor recalled how he hid in the trunk of a friend’s car to get through the gates of the studio where “Soul Train” was filmed in 1972. Cornelius liked his dance moves and let him stay, dubbing Proctor “The Bone” because he was so skinny. “He tur ned us into stars,” Proctor said. Moves that “Soul Train” dancers developed spread nationwide and are now staples of music videos and pop concerts. “Blocking, popping, ticking, waacking, punking — when Madonna does what she does at the Super Bowl, you’ll see some of these things done there,” Proctor said. “Don Cornelius created all of this. It came out of his mind.” Fans recalled tuning in to see “Soul Train’s” cartoon train chugging across their television screens. When Flack recalled Cornelius’ stiff-necked delivery, the Harlem crowd of about 300 people laughed knowingly. William “A.J. Dynamite” Aponte, a keyboard player, said he was ecstatic as a kid when his idol, Elton John, appeared on the show. He says the appearance showed that people of all races could find

common ground in music. “He sang ‘Benny and the Jets,’ and I thought it was so great because Elton John is not black, he’s white and he’s British,” Aponte said. “It influenced me to want to do music.” Proctor said Cornelius was also generous. When
Proctor won a car on “American Bandstand,” “Soul Train’s” competition, Cor nelius paid the $334.25 in taxes so the struggling dancer could receive his award. “He wrote the check out and that was it, no questions asked. He just said,
‘Go get the car,”’ Proctor said. Proctor and other speakers said they were shocked when they heard that Cornelius had committed suicide. Author Terrie Williams named other black performers who had killed themselves and said
Cornelius’ death should be a warning for victims of depression to seek help. “One of the things that Don’s death brought us to is that we’ve got to look in the mirror before we end up in this kind of situation,” Sharpton told the crowd.

Rest of TV world idolizing NFL’s appeal to viewers NEW YORK (AP) — The biggest of stars is off to a slow start this season. “American Idol,” that reliable ratings juggernaut, had a drop in viewership of more than 15 percent for its first two episodes back, underscoring how rough it is to attract and keep a devoted following when there are so many entertainment options. Not so for the NFL. Last month, its conference championship games were the most watched in 30 years, and it soars into Sunday’s Super Bowl defying the ratings drag that plague much of TV. “Every once in a while on TV, these events galvanize the nation, like ‘Who shot J.R.?”’ said Kelly Kahl, the senior executive vice president for CBS Primetime. “These things come along once every five, 10 years. The Super Bowl is every year.” In 2006, NFL games on CBS, Fox and NBC averaged 16.3 million viewers. By 2011, that number had climbed to 19.8 million (down slightly from 20 million a year ago). Looking at the primetime lineups on the Big 4 broadcast networks — the traditional home of mainstream entertainment — puts into perspective how unusual that surge is. In 2006, their prime-time shows averaged 9.8 million viewers during the NFL regular season. Five years later, that had decreased to 8.1 million. The NFL’s advantage had multiplied from 66 percent to 144 percent. “It’s gotten great momentum, and nothing has gotten in the way to stop that momentum,” Kahl said. A close score Sunday between the New England Patriots and

New England Patriots football team mascot, Pat Patriot, poses at Super Bowl Village in Indianapolis, Saturday.
New York Giants likely will break the record set by last year’s Super Bowl for the largest audience in U.S. television history of 111 million people. That’s not to be confused with the highestrated show ever, measured by the percentage of all American homes with TVs tuned into a program. The “MASH” series finale, watched by more than 60 percent, still holds that distinction. Population growth partly explains last year’s big number, but massive interest in the game also does. At 46 percent, the 2011 game compared favorably to the Super Bowl record of 49.1 set in 1982 during the golden age of TV watching. Network executives can rattle off all the reasons for the NFL’s

appeal: Scarcity of games, winner-take-all nature of the playoffs, fantasy football and gambling, the unpredictability of sports, the stunning visual of the NFL in HD. The formula is not a secret, but replicating it is mystifying. “The answer is elusive,” said ESPN executive vice president John Wildhack. “If people knew, then others would emulate it.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the TV property outside of sports most similar to the NFL is probably “Idol.” What those competition reality shows can’t match is the singing contest equivalent of the “Madden” video games, said Brad Adgate, an analyst at Horizon Media.

“There might be some fantasy league for ‘American Idol’ or ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but there’s not anything as remotely near popular as for sports,” he said. College football is surging in popularity, too, and the two sports build off each other. The fame of college stars boosts interest in the draft, keeping the NFL in fans’ consciousness during the offseason. Those players arrive in the pros already with a following. Unlike other sports’ championships, the Super Bowl has proved remarkably consistent at drawing big audiences even when small-market, tradition-poor franchises make it. Still, the NFL has been on a fortuitous run in recent years of close games and

intriguing story lines. The last four Super Bowls have featured a New York team (the Giants in 2008), an undefeated club (the Patriots that year), two appearances by the vaunted Steelers franchise, one by the vaunted Packers franchise (against Pittsburgh last year), and the feel-good tale of the Saints representing hurricaneravaged New Orleans. And after a brief stretch when it appeared a team didn’t need a superstar quarterback to win (Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer), the glamour has fully returned to the position. With Tom Brady and Eli Manning, this year’s Super Bowl features a supermodel wife and the first family of QBs. It’s been a good year for TV sports ratings in general with the World Series and Stanley Cup finals going to a Game 7 and the NBA needing six games. But those sports always risk a sweep and the lower ratings that generally follow. NBC’s Bob Costas, who will host the network’s Super Bowl coverage, is unabashedly a bigger fan of baseball than any other sport. He can rave about the appeal of the NFL’s one-and-done model — but he would never want MLB to cut down to a threegame series. “What’s best for baseball television-wise works against it as far as the integrity of the competition,” he said. And so the NFL will remain a singular entertainment property bigger than just a sport or TV show. Of this Sunday, Wildhack said, “It’s an unofficial national holiday.”
