ENMU-R mill levy fails by wide margin JILL MCLAUGHLIN RECORD STAFF WRITER
The Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell mill levy increase was soundly defeated Tuesday after 66 percent of voters chose to deny the property tax increase. A total of 3,674 of those who turned out for the special election voted against the three-mill levy, and 1,861 voted in favor. ENMU-R President John Madden waited at the Chaves County clerk’s office as the numbers were tallied. “It’s devastating for the campus,” Madden said. “We did not make our case. We believe what we do for this
community is overwhelmingly good. And I would say for the vote count to be two-to-one, I would say the voters disagree with that.” The university hoped to raise $2.1 million a year by increasing its mill levy rate from one to three mills to pay for operating expenses. Madden said he felt the mill levy’s election was based on whether the community wanted to continue ENMUR’s programs. Opponents argued against the election based on the property tax increase rate and the fact that the tax was indefinite. “I believe tonight is a victory for Chaves County property owners and voters,” said resident Hudson
Boue. “When I started this campaign, after I read the legal ad … I made it my mission to inform, the best I could, the Chaves County voters about this election. If the university wants to vilify anyone, let them come after me and not the good people who helped me and not the people who voted against them in this election. They are not scum, nor are they ‘damn liars,’ or bad people.” State-funded institutions should look at more fair and equal methods of raising money rather than the county property owners, he said. “I will hope they do so in See LEVY, Page A3

Snow, ice slam parts of state
NWS: Roswell has a 30 percent chance of snow
Snow is cleared from NM-285 as it falls in the Santa Fe area on Tuesday.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Snow and ice struck parts of New Mexico on Tuesday, causing difficult driving conditions, closing schools and ending a record-breaking winter dry spell in the state’s largest city. According to the National Weather Service, the drought-stricken city of Albuquerque saw about 3 inches of snow Tuesday, ending its longest period between December and February — 43 days — without any precipitation. It also was the longest stretch of consecutive days since 1920 without any
measureable precipitation during winter. In Santa Fe, parts of the city saw close to 4 inches of snow early Tuesday, prompting school officials to cancel classes. Santa Fe County Magistrate Court also opened two hours late as snow blanketed the Capitol just as lawmakers continued their 30-day legislative session. The storm, which began late Monday, brought needed fresh snow to ski resorts in northern New See SNOW, Page A3
MTP ramps up effort Deportations fail to sway GOP on immigration to prevent semi crashes JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER
The Motor T ransport Police are beefing up patrols in Southeast New Mexico. The increase is part of an ongoing campaign. Officers are being brought in from around the state to try to combat all traf fic issues involving semi-trucks and passenger vehicles. The special operation in the southeast portion of the state will be focusing on commercial vehicle crashes. According to New Mexico State Police Dist. 3 Capt.
Lance Bateman, one of the reasons for the increase is the fact that two of three traffic fatalities in the area involved one commercial vehicle.
“Some of the trucking company’s vehicles are up to date. Others are not.” Issues can include problems with brakes and other safety violations, including driver safety.
Bateman said the MTP are concentrating their attention in Eddy and Lea counties near the areas around Lovington and Carlsbad, although this See CRASHES, Page A3
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has deported more than 1.9 million immigrants, aggressive enforcement of current law that fails to sway several House Republicans who blame distrust of President Barack Obama for GOP reluctance on immigration legislation.
Republicans who emerged from their weekly caucus meeting on Tuesday offered competing views on the prospects for immigration this election year just days after GOP leaders unveiled principles that call for legalization but not a special path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally, increased border and interior security and an employment verification system.
“Clearly the draft principles we outlined, members seem to be rather supportive of them,” Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters.
“There was a lot of discussion about whether we should proceed, if we proceed and how we would proceed. It’s also clear from our members that we believe that securing our borders has to be the first step in this process.” But he added that conversations are continuing and “no decision’s been made.” Further tamping down any optimism for legislation this year was Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who told reporters that differences between the Senate’s comprehensive approach and the House’s piecemeal strategy were an “irresolvable conflict.” “I don’t see how you get to an outcome this year with the two bodies in such a different place,” McConnell told reporters. The release of the House Republican principles gave hope to advo-
Lawmakers seek Endangered Species Act overhaul
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Republicans in Congress on Tuesday called for an overhaul to the Endangered Species Act to curtail environmentalists’ lawsuits and give more power to states, but experts say broad changes to one of the nation’s cornerstone environmental laws are unlikely given the pervasive partisan divide in Washington, D.C.
A group of 13 GOP lawmakers representing states across the U.S. released a report proposing “targeted reforms” for the 40-year-old
federal law, which protects imperiled plants and animals.
Proponents credit the law with staving off extinction for hundreds of species — from the bald eagle and American alligator to the gray whale. But critics contend the law has been abused by environmental groups seeking to restrict development in the name of species protection. Led by Rep. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming and Rep. Doc Hastings of Washington state, who chairs the
HIGH 43 LOW 21
House Natural Resources Committee, the Republicans want to amend the law to limit litigation from wildlife advocates that has resulted in protections for some species. And they want to give states more authority over imperiled species that fall within their borders. Also among the recommendations from the group are increased scientific transparency, more accurate economic impact studies and safeguards for private landowners. “The biggest problem is

cates pushing for the first overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws in three decades that long-stalled legislation could be completed this year despite the political headwinds of the midterm elections. But House Republican members remain divided, casting doubt on any action this year even on a bill-by-bill approach favored by House leaders.
“The big split is on the amnesty question and giving legal status to those here illegally,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. “It divides the conference right down the middle. It depends on where they’re from, what their situation is,” a reference to lawmakers’ home districts.
With specific bills still under discussion, Mica added that as the November election draws closer, “the less inclined people are to have anything controversial brought up.”
that the Endangered Species Act is not recovering species,” said Hastings. “The way the act was written, there is more of an effort to list (species as endangered or threatened) than to delist.” Signed into law by President Richard Nixon in December 1973, the act has resulted in additional protections for more than 1,500 plants, insects, mammals, birds, reptiles and other creatures, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Facebook barrels ahead on 10th anniversary Roswell Daily Record
NEW YORK (AP) — It has been 10 years since a Harvard sophomore named Mark Zuckerberg created a website called Thefacebook.com to let his classmates find their friends online. They did. And in the decade since, so have more than a billion people, not just American college students but also farmers in India, activists in Egypt and pop stars in South Korea. Facebook has transformed how much of the world communicates. Zuckerberg’s insistence that people use real identities, not quirky screen names, helped blur, if not erase entirely, the divide between our online and offline worlds.

Comments made by Madden about mill levy Monday opponents sparked feedback in the community, he said. “I got a lot of phone calls (Tuesday),” Madden said. “I apologize to the community. There’s no reason to use that kind of language. I had a lot of calls from supporters today and a lot of detractors today. That’s fair enough. It’s kind of indicative of how the campaign has gone from day one. And it’s sad.” Madden will today begin the process of deciding what changes would be made, he said. “The concern we have going forward is that, what programs and, or services do we need to cut. And to the State of New Mexico, it is going to be quite devastating. I don’t think we can destroy the economy of Chaves County by cutting all these programs so we’re going to have to figure out a way to preserve as much as we can for those interests in the community.” Voters stood in line at times to cast ballots throughout the day.

Retreating on illegal immigration A4 Wednesday, February 5, 2014
At a time when Republicans have Democrats playing defense on Obamacare, jobs and the economy, the GOP is inexplicably ceding political ground to the Democrats on an issue that can only provide more votes for that party and possibly lead to a permanent Democratic majority. Meeting in Cambridge, Md., last weekend for what they called — with no little irony — a “retreat,” Republican leaders signaled they are open to considering some sort of legal status for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who have overstayed their visas or violated American law to get here. But exactly who are the illegals? According to a study conducted by the Urban Institute, “Mexicans make up over half of illegal immigrants — 57 percent of the total, or about 5.3 million. Another 2.2 million (23 percent) are from other Latin American countries. About 10 percent are from Asia, 5 percent from Europe and Canada, and 5 percent from the rest of the world.” Republicans have convinced themselves that Hispanics are a “natural” constituency for their
party because they are hard workers, religious and family-oriented. Statistics from the Pew Research Center suggest the opposite may be true. According to Pew, 53 percent of babies bor n to Hispanic immigrants are to single mothers, about twice the rate of whites. As for Republican “family values,” Pew found a majority of Hispanics, 53 percent, support same-sex marriage. As a great many illegals are poor, their strain on the welfare, health care and education systems is considerable. In a recent column, Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative political analyst, cited an American National Election Study that asked Hispan-
ics their views about the free market vs. big government solutions to problems. Schlafly noted, “Only 17.9 percent of Hispanics responded ‘the less government the better,’ and 85.3 percent said ‘a strong gover nment involvement is required to handle economic problems.’” This is not the profile of a future Republican voter. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) says illegals now make up 3.5 percent of the U.S. population, or about 10.5 million people. According to CIS, “Nationally, illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children account for 9.9 percent of all persons in poverty, compared to their 4.9 percent share of (the) nation’s total population.” With lower incomes, illegals rely more on welfare programs. CIS says in Texas, “58 percent of illegal households collect some sort of welfare,” with “49 percent using food assistance and 41 percent using Medicaid.” In California and Illinois, reports CIS, “55 percent use welfare.” California, which has the largest number of illegal aliens, predictably

has the greatest burden. In Los Angeles County alone, according to a CBS Los Angeles report, welfare and other benefits by the end of last year cost an estimated $650 million just for the native-born children of illegal immigrant parents. L.A. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich told CBS Los Angeles: “When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion a year.” Hospital closings in California remain a major concern. As Examiner.com reported recently in a story about the economic burden to taxpayers posed by illegal immigrants, “In 2003, the American Southwest saw 77 hospitals enter bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills incurred by illegal aliens.” This country needs comprehensive immigration reform, whether that means maintaining a secure border or outlining a standard of economic sustainability for immigrants. Taxpayers cannot continue to bear the economic burden of illegal immigration. The Obama
administration has promised immigration reform; the Republican Party has promised it, but partisanship and politics keep both sides miles apart. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) remains skeptical that any immigration measure will pass the GOP-led house this year, claiming that a distrust of the president runs deep with Republicans. And while both sides dither, the taxpayer continues to pay ... and our schools, hospitals and welfare system continue to sag under the weight of millions of illegal immigrants who chose not to take the legal route to citizenship. If Republicans fail to come up with a workable immigration plan, they will simultaneously help Democrats who rely on the Hispanic vote and lose Republican votes. As Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz told Breitbart News, they could also fail to achieve their major goal for 2014: winning a Senate majority. (Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at email@example.com.)

Income inequality poses global risk of riots and revolution
In the mid-1930s, as the Great Depression festered, America saw the rise of movements demanding radical economic reforms. These ranged from the communist party on the far left to the EPIC (End Poverty in California) coalition to the Farmer-Labor Party in the upper Midwest to Democratic Sen. Huey Long’s “Every Man a King” demagogic crusade in Louisiana. In an article in the Hoover Institution’s Digest in 2001, the political historians Seymour Martin Lipset and Gary Marks wrote that as the 1936 election approached, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was alarmed enough that he shifted his policies and rhetoric to the left, “consciously seeking to steal the thunder of his populist critics. ... (T)he president stated that to save capitalism from itself and its opponents he might have to ‘equalize the distribution of wealth,’ which could necessitate ‘throw(ing) to the wolves the forty-six men who are reported to have incomes in excess of one million dollars a year.’” Many conservatives today take issue with the notion that FDR saved capitalism; World War II and widening post-war prosperity may have been more responsible. But the fact remains that the anger of the dispossessed was dissipated. And except for the race riots of the 1960s, it has stayed dissipated. Some very smart people are wondering how long that can last. Aside from extremists at both ends of the political spectrum, no one is predicting riots or revolution in the United States any time soon. But some academic experts see social unrest as inevitable as income disparity rises and job opportunities continue to fall. One of the few mainstream politicians to raise the issue was then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg — one of the richest men in America — who said in 2011, “You have a lot of kids graduating college, can’t find jobs. That’s what happened in Cairo. That’s what happened in Madrid. You don’t want those kind of riots here. The damage to a generation that can’t find jobs will go on for many, many years.” Consider the odds raised by a study released by OxFam, the global aid organization, ahead of the Davos meeting. The richest 85 people in the world control as much wealth as the poorer half of the world’s population of 7 billion people, OxFam said. Sooner or later, at least a few of those 3.5 billion are going to take to the streets. Very few of them live in the United States. The economy here leaves fewer people completely dispossessed, and thanks to the kinds of social programs begun under Franklin Roosevelt, a safety net catches many of them. Self-interest alone argues that further cuts in that net are not a good idea. Increasingly the dispossessed spurn the political system, which has been captured by wealthy elites, OxFam said. A political system that benefits the few at the expense of the many is asking for trouble. If the Global Risk 2014 Cassandras are right, trouble might not be that far off. It would behoove the world’s elite to fix things before that happens.
The rich as underdogs
MARK SHIELDS CREATORS SYNDICATE Tom Perkins, a venture capitalist with a net worth of reportedly $8 billion, sits on the board of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., which owns The Wall Street Journal. So it was not surprising that when Perkins wrote a letter to the editor whining about the shabby treatment of the nation’s richest 1 percent, the newspaper would publish it. What did surprise some, however, was what Perkins wrote about the persecution of the plutocrats: “Writing from the
epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its ‘one percent,’ namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the ‘rich.’” Perkins war ns of “a very dangerous drift in our American thinking. Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant ‘progressive’ radicalism unthinkable now?” Kristallnacht was Hitler’s 1938 public declaration of war against the Jewish citizens of
Germany and Austria when, in two nights, over 1,000 synagogues were bur ned, and thousands of Jewish-owned businesses were ransacked and destroyed. Ninety-one Jews were killed, and 30,000 more were arrested and sent to concentration camps. After you read Perkins’ letter — which The Wall Street Journal published and then after widespread criticism of its language and logic, editorially defended — you want to ask the billionaire writer just one question: If you’re so rich, then why aren’t you smart?
But Perkins is not the only billionaire with a persecution complex. Back in President Barack Obama’s term when the new administration briefly threatened to stop giving preferential treatment to the fortunes earned in private equity, called “carried interest,” by taxing them at only 15 percent and treating them the same as paychecks earned by firefighters and nurses, Stephen Schwarzman, head of the buyout king Blackstone Group, with a reported per-

REPRINTED FROM THE ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
Dear Editor: “A virulent strain," “Scum," “liars” and “damned liars." That’s what ENMU-R President Madden calls those who choose to speak or to vote against his tax measure. And he thinks he’s angry? Whatever credibility I might have been willing to offer him by virtue of his office has just gone down the drain. Such language, and the blanket usage of it are simply inappropriate coming from one who presumably has academic credentials and a position of leadership at any college or university. Equally inappropriate is the manner in which Mr. Madden has arranged for the mill levy to be presented to the Chaves County community. In my view, once the
adminstrative decision had been made to pursue such a levy on property owners, we should have been the first to know. I would have welcomed a letter specifying the details. Instead, I got a fuzzy news article about ongoing early voting for a levy whose purpose was not clearly defined and for which only two voting locations were cited - neither of them convenient to me. I called the courthouse, and then I called Mr. Madden’s office, and was unable to find anyone who could answer my questions about the details of the levy. Someone would call me back - to my knowledge, no one ever did. Apparently, lots of people knew the information I was seeking about the levy all the students at ENMU-R. “Madden and
his instructors have actively been in the classroom discussing the mill levy election” with students. This might be appropriate educational content in social science classes, but hardly in nursing or technology or IT. Do they discuss staff salaries and proposed academic appointments in classes too? I highly doubt it, and neither does the mill levy conversation belong in the classroom. An extra-curricular student gathering - fine. A student/community panel or forum - fine. But nothing had been said about further information available to the community prior to the time I found opportunity to vote at one of the two inconvenient polling sites. Of course I voted no. People continually
target seniors for scams, and frankly, I felt the mill levy proposal was handled as underhandedly and sneakily as any scam. That further underwrites the loss of any credibility I might have granted Mr. Madden. Frankly, Mr. Madden doesn’t know me from Eve, and I really don’t care what he thinks of me. I do care about the health and welfare of Roswell and Chaves County, and nothing that Mr. Madden has said or done around this levy convinces me that he cares one bit about our welfare. Moreover, if his running of this campaign exemplifies his running of ENMU-R, I think we are all being badly shortchanged. Pamela Ann Moeller, Ph.D.
Political retaliation, — a reality OPINION/LOCAL
Roswell Daily Record
While talking with fellow vets last week, the topic of government denying, reducing or eliminating benefits based on retaliation, or any number of vengeful reasons, was heatedly debated. There was full representation politically, as there was one Independent, two Democrats and one Republican represented in the discussion. The issue of the recent reduction in retired veterans pensions (and even the denial of certain veterans’ pensions altogether) started the “gymnastics.” Individual vets being singled out for “rocking the boat.” was brought up. Our two Democrats, emphatically stated the Republican and tea party fanatics were at the core of the problem, and that the current government would not allow retaliation to be a “tool” used against groups (such as veterans). Their statements were just not true. Unfortunately, the numerous lies coming out of the current White House occupants are being ignored as if the magic “brainwashing dust” was blinding those the tooting
Obama/Pelosi/Reid/Biden horn “plans for equality” all around. “Don’t rock the Democrat boat, or you will be sorry.” To prove my point, here is the example. A few years ago, the Clinton administration committed a blatant act of retaliation against our local Chaves County Home Health and Hospice agency, resulting in the closing of that not for profit vital community service. Why? Chaves County Home Health and Hospice (CCHHS) and two other home health and hospice providers sued the government for making disastrous changes in the way medical providers were being paid under the Medicare regula-
Dear Editor “Scum.” Dr. Madden calls those that vote or have voted against the measure to raise taxes in support of ENMU-R scum. I would think that after working to get a Ph.D., Dr. Madden would have expanded his vocabulary and his thinking process to the point where he understands that there are different points of view in this country and opposing view points come from his friends and neighbors. Obviously̰, Dr. Madden is not out to make friends. Since he will never sit at my kitchen table to discuss the tax increase, I would like to use this letter to let him know what this “scum” is thinking. Dr. Madden, you could have used that terrible left-leaning media to inform the public precisely how our hard-earned taxes would be used. All I have learned from you is that other cities are paying more in taxes to support their educational facilities than Chaves Country does. It appears to me you want to put our hardearned tax dollars into a slush fund to use as you please. Exactly what programs are we supporting? What are you going to do about the falling enrollment problem? Did you consider asking the taxpayers for a smaller tax increase in the form of a bond issue that would have an end date rather than a huge never-ending tax increase? From the moment I first discovered this election, I wanted more detailed information and accountability than what you put forth to us “scum,” the public, that pays your salary. This brings me to my final question. Why did you wait until two weeks before the election to notify the public of this elec-

sonal net worth of $7.7 billion, was furious. With characteristic understatement, he fumed, “It’s a war. It’s like when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939.” Apparently, these wise men have chosen not to remember their dividends and capital gains were taxed at exactly the same rate as ordinary income in the much-praised Tax Refor m Act of 1986, which was championed and signed into law by the modern hero of American conservatism, former President Ronald Reagan. Let’s show a little empathy for the beleaguered 1 percent. After all, since Obama became the nation’s 44th presi-
tion? Dr. Madden, I feel like you tried to use politics to win this election rather than being straightforward and fully informing the public of your intentions. You informed the students of the election in September, and you put a voting station at the college in an effort to get the students and former students who are familiar with the campus ease of access to vote early. You kept the rest of us in the dark with a dearth of information, and limited our access to an early vote by providing only one other place to vote — at the courthouse — also located in the south part of town. In essence, you tried to pull a fast one and “sneak” this election past the taxpayers of the county The residents of Roswell, the rural residents and the residents of the other cities in Chaves County deserve better. They deserve the same opportunity to vote with the same information as the students and former students of ENMU-R. You have denied them that opportunity, Dr. Madden. As a result, I voted against this measure, and I hope it fails. Stephen Krajeck
Dear Editor, As a member of the “virulent strain... (of) scum” that voted against the ENMU-R mill levy, I would like to add a comment or two. I have never voted against an educational bond or educational mill levy until today. I voted against this one for a simple reason...it has no sunset date. The educational world is changing rapidly and institutions need to change and adapt, or die. Feeding
dent, the Dow Jones has merely doubled. During the first Obama administration, as the nation struggled to emerge from the Great Recession, the real growth in income for the bottom 99 percent of Americans between 2009 and 2012 was a measly 0.4 percent. During that same period, the real income of the 1 percent shot up by 31.4 percent. Let’s hope it’s of some solace to the abused rich to realize that 95 percent of the total growth in all income in the U.S. between 2009 and 2012 went to the deserving richest, their top 1 percent. This reminds me of a favorite story told by the writer Kurt Vonnegut about his good friend Joseph Heller, who wrote the profoundly humorous
tions. These billing changes would have negatively af fected home health and hospice providers not part of a large, national corporation. The suit against Medicare went all the way to the Supreme Court. Then “it” happened. An “intermediary review” by the government’s insurance contractor (Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Iowa, dba Wellmark) was ordered by Clinton’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, Donna Shalala. A few years later, CCHHS had to close its doors. The government and Blue Cross/Blue Shield decided to deny payment for Medicare/Medicaid services rendered by CCHHS to local patients. The payment refusal amount of $996,000 bankrupted the not for profit community service. But, what exactly was the reason for nonpayment? CCHHS had decided to set up public service/community programs desperately needed by Children, Youth and Families Division, and by local AIDS patient/groups. At the time, no one locally was
interested in providing medical support to under age, low income, unmarried expectant mothers, or to AIDS patients (focusing on prevention programs for youth and “recreational drugs” users). Salaries plus all applicable costs and reimbursable expenses were meticulously separated from Medicare/Medicaid expenses by CCHHS, so as not to be mixed up with Medicare/Medicaid billing. The Clinton operatives all of a sudden decided that wasn’t good enough. They not only disallowed what “they figured” was shared cost, but (all) Medicare/Medicaid costs going back to the original Blue Cross/Blue Shield review. Then, after the agency was closed, two “Under Secretaries” from the Department of Health and Human Services came to Roswell “to keep CCHHS in business.” It seems as though the heat was turned up when it was discovered the largest not for profit home health provider in New Mexico (as well as one of the highest ranked medical providers per government certification) was financially forced to
them more money may or may not increase the likelihood of their ultimate survival, and I am not sure that an open-ended commitment of $2 million per year will do much without some really fine management skills. Which brings me to my second point. Mr. Madden, if you want to have some of OUR money for your little university, then perhaps you should not be calling us names. You are not entitled to our money, in spite of your opinion to the contrary. I understand that some people have been rude to you, but that does not make it all right for a person in your position to be rude to the very people whose money you seek. Perhaps we need new leadership at ENMU-R?
that offered by ENMU-R) teaches students to understand many sides to any issue. I would remind Dr. Madden, that many of the people who oppose his mill levy are graduates of his institution. Others of us are well-educated, travelled, and read. Just because a person disagrees with Dr. Madden does not make that person “scum,” a vocal pathogen of a “‘virulent strain’ of anti-tax group” or “anti-everything” or incapable of understanding the issue. If Dr. Madden is being booed at meetings, perhaps it’s because he is not an effective communicator and consensus builder. After reading his statements in the Feb. 4, 2014, Roswell Daily Record (bold headline, above the crease no less), I can only suggest, if the mill levy fails to pass, Dr. Madden is solely responsible. Not only has he insulted taxpayers (whose hard-earned tax money pays his salary), he has angered many voters who were for the mill levy.
Best regards, Don Donigan Roswell, NM
Dear Editor, I’ve been called many pejorative epithets in my life (usually “bitch” by ex-boyfriends); however, being referred to as “scum” by ENMURoswell President Dr. John Madden is a new one. Scum? Simply for disagreeing with his proposed mill levy that would raise my property taxes to pay for “operating expenses” at his institution. Did Dr. Madden never lear n that ad hominem (personal) attacks are the lowest for m of rhetoric, usually employed by those most of us would refer to as “scum”? After all those years of lear ning to gain his doctorate (Ph.D.), did no professor ever explain to him such attacks backfire? Surprisingly, his doctorate is in “Educational Psychology.” Maybe he was absent those days. A liberal arts education (such as

Kate Davis, taxpayer Roswell, NM (Yes, I live in what I am sure Madden would call a “scummy” part of town. Ha!)
I, like so many in our community, continue to struggle with the “why” of the recent shooting at Berrendo Middle School. In any discussion when the issue of gun control comes up and someone reminds us that guns aren’t the problem-it’s the people using them! Certainly that is true! Cars don’t get drunk and kill people — it’s the people driving. I never hear anyone complaining that we have to take a test to drive and have the license renewed every so often.
close its doors. Unfortunately, it was too late for the agency. The only two employees left, the CFO and me, asked the two Clinton reps if they could find out (off the record, and only for peace of mind) if CCHHS had been targeted for “elimination” due to the Supreme Court lawsuit. They seemed to genuinely have felt bad about the irreversible closing and agreed to “ask the question.” The response (off the record, of course) was as expected. Yes, CCHHS was targeted, but “we will deny this conversation ever took place”). Unfortunately, Chaves County Home Health and Hospice did not have high-powered lawyers to defend themselves, as the large home health agencies can afford. Folks, these things do and continue to happen. The only way we can stop it is to wake up and stop believing the political lies being thrown out to the public. Eliminating the “deadwood” in the White House and the Senate needs to happen. Elections are coming up. We need to wake up and smell the garbage. God bless.
Nor can we go to a driver’s license show on the weekend and get an illegal license. Without these laws. it could be very frightening to drive around Roswell. And so it seems to be for people going to schools and other public areas in our community as well as schools and public areas across the country. There were 28 mass shootings in the U.S. last year. We have already had seven shootings in the first 14 days of 2014. We kill more people in a month in this country than England kills in a year! Is this the year we will truly realize the consequences of our country’s inaction and will we rise to the occasion? Will we put aside politics and greed or will we continue on this same path? If we want to change this pattern, it is up to us. We must tighten the gun control laws without infringing on our Constitution. We must manage the mentally ill in our communities which may mean funding in this area as well as changing some of our laws that will allow better monitoring of the mentally ill. We need to start to look at the preoccupation with violence in our country. I am sick of violent movies, TV ads, etc. Much of our country has lost its conscious! We must restore our consciousness. There’s nothing wrong with learning “right from wrong.” Will this solve the whole problem — hardly. But we have to start somewhere and it must start with us. Let’s not wait until some other school or mall has to experience what we just did in our community. The next strike could be you or I or someone we love. Bev Bucklew

Gay marriage fight comes to Southern courtroom NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The gay marriage fight arrived in a Souther n courtroom Tuesday, as opponents of a Virginia law banning same-sex unions told a federal judge it was just like the Jim Crow-era prohibition against interracial marriage. Supporters maintained there was no fundamental right to gay marriage and the ban exists as part of the state’s interest in responsible procreation. “We have marriage laws in society because we have
children, not because we have adults,” said attorney David Nimocks, of the religious group Alliance Defending Freedom. The case is being closely watched because it could give the gay marriage movement its first foothold in the South, and because legal experts think it’s on the fast track to the U.S. Supreme Court. Recently elected Virginia Attor ney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, announced Jan. 23 that he would not defend the ban
because he thinks it violates the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Federal judges have cited the 14th Amendment in overturning gay marriage bans in Utah and Oklahoma. Those rulings are on hold while they are appealed. Herring, as a state senator, supported Virginia’s 2006 voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of a man and woman. His change illus-
trates how rapidly the political and legal landscape on gay marriage in the U.S. is shifting. Herring’s chief litigator, Solicitor General Stuart Raphael, told U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen that Virginia had frequently been on the wrong side of history, citing its interracial marriage ban and its defense of segregation. The 14th Amendment was also used in those cases. Raphael said supporters have failed to prove how

Winter brings salt shortage, steeper prices
CHICAGO (AP) — As piles of snow grow taller during this seemingly endless winter, the mounds of salt for spreading on the nation’s icy, slushy roads are shrinking, forcing communities to ration supplies or try exotic new ice-melting substances. Cities have already gone through most of their salt well ahead of the time they traditionally really need it — when the coldest part of winter gives way to tem-
peratures just war m enough to turn snow into freezing rain and sleet and roads into ribbons of ice. “If we don’t get the salt, at some point people are going to be sliding all over the place like what you saw in Atlanta,” said Julius Hansen, public works director in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, citing last week’s television images of thousands of motorists getting stranded on ice-covered

roads in the South. So far this year, Glen Ellyn’s snow-removal crews have responded to 31 storms. “In an average winter, we have 20,” Hansen said. A community the size of Glen Ellyn, population 27,000, might use 50 to 100 tons per storm. A bigger community such as Waukesha, Wis., which has about 70,000 residents, could use 300 tons or more. The same storm
in Chicago would call for more than 13,000 tons.
Demand is so high that salt gets more expensive every day. Communities are trying to decide what do to. They could buy a little more salt now, when it costs twice or three times more than earlier in the season, and hope it doesn’t snow too much more. Or they could wait until it does snow more and risk paying even higher prices.

allowing gay marriage would make heterosexual couples less likely to marry. “That’s the Achilles’ heel in the argument,” he said. Before the hearing, dozens of demonstrators at the courthouse shouted phrases decrying Herring’s position. Some of them carried signs saying: “Herring’s herring. AG’s must uphold the law.” Across the street, a much smaller group yelled their support for gay marriage and carried signs saying: “Marry who you love,”
which drew honks of support from drivers passing by. The judge said she would rule soon. Wright Allen is a former public defender and assistant U.S. attorney who was appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. After Herring’s of fice decided not to defend the law, Wright Allen considered not even hearing verbal arguments because of the “compelling” filing by the attor ney general’s office.
ATLANTA (AP) — Children are dying less often in traffic accidents: Over a decade, the number who died in crashes dropped by 43 percent, according to a new government report. Health officials say the increased use of car seats and booster seats drove the decline. Still, one-third of the children 12 and under who died in 2011 were not buckled up. “The first step is buckling up. Every child, of every age, on every trip,” said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC report focused on crash deaths of children 12 and under and covered 2002 through 2011, when traf fic fatalities overall declined to levels not seen since the 1940s. Young children traditionally have been only a small fraction of total traf fic deaths. In the last year of the study, children accounted for 650 of the 21,000 deaths of drivers and passengers. Preliminary CDC figures for 2012 show child deaths continued to fall, to 637. “Children aren’t going drinking, and they’re not typically out at night,” said Jonathan Adkins, deputy director of the Governors Highway Safety Associa-
tion. Teens and young adults account for the largest share of deaths, he added. The CDC study was not designed to answer why the deaths of younger children declined. But experts credited a large growth in state laws requiring car seats and booster seats, and in programs that promote buckling kids up. But there’s been a racial disparity in how well that’s worked. Almost half of the black and Hispanic children who died in crashes in 2009 and 2010 were not in safety seats or wearing seat belts, compared to a quarter of white deaths, according to the CDC. That may be related to income, experts said. Car seats can run well over $100 and be challenging to install. Larger proportions of minority families may have trouble getting the money or help to put them in. Frieden noted there are community programs that provide help and subsidies for car seats. Health officials urge parents to keep all children 12 and under in the back seat, and use car seats and booster seats until seat belts fit properly. They recommend that car seats should face the rear up to age 2.
Child traffic deaths drop by nearly half

production, or about 450 million tons a year, comes from public lands leased by the government to mining companies under the century-old Mineral Leasing Act. Those leases bring in more than $1 billion in annual revenue. While exports of the fuel to lucrative Asian markets have surged in recent years, the rules for leasing government-owned coal have remained largely unchanged since 1990. That’s stirred concerns that companies could be shortchanging taxpayers by buying coal cheaply from the government based on U.S. market prices and then selling it at a premium overseas.

of the Interior Department’s coal-leasing program by the GAO revealed widespread inconsistencies in how the government values public coal reserves that are leased to private mining companies. The GAO also found a near-total lack of competitiveness in the leasing program. Almost 90 percent of the 107 coal tracts leased since 1990 received just a single bid. Without those problems, the government’s coal sales could have brought in $200 million in additional revenue — and possibly hundreds of millions more, said Markey, who requested the GAO study in April 2012.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) #### Your thoughts could stop you from acting. You might be receiving a very different vision from what is being presented to you. Others’ perceptions will seem off. Stop and re-evaluate. How you react could be interesting to those who understand your responses. Tonight: Your treat. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ##### A get-together with a friend will point you in a new direction. You might not want to leap into action until you have thought through all the other options. Brainstorming could provide many more alternatives. Be flexible, talk and share. Tonight: What you want. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ## Consider a boss’s or a supervisor’s idea; this person has experience. Be realistic about your boundaries and capabilities. You could learn a thing or two from someone else. Loosen up and enjoy a friend whom you don’t get to see often. Tonight: Till the wee hours.
Clinton top Leno target NEW YORK (AP) — For Jay Leno, Bill Clinton was the comic gift who kept giving. By one exhaustive count, the outgoing “Tonight” show host made 4,607 jokes at the former president’s expense during his time on the program. The Center for Media and Public Affairs catalogued nearly 44,000 jokes Leno made about political figures and celebrities at “Tonight” through Jan. 24. Leno is leaving “Tonight” after Thursday. His first Clinton joke came on May 25, 1992, shortly after taking over from Johnny Carson and when Clinton was still a presidential candidate. “Clinton says that he’s troubled by the amount of sex on television,” Leno said. “He says that where he’s from sex is a deeply personal thing between a candidate and his campaign volunteers.” “Leno jokes about powerful people and he jokes about scandals. Bill Clinton is both,” said Robert Lichter, director of the Washington-area think tank and author of the upcoming book, “Politics is a Joke: How TV Comedians are Remaking Political Life.” How long has Leno been joking about Clinton? One popular topic was the politician’s weight and penchant for fast food — now he’s a lean vegetarian. Not only is Clinton more than a thousand jokes ahead of the runnerup (George W. Bush, 3,239 jokes), Leno’s top 10 targets also include Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Leno’s concentration on politics is evident in the list of his top 10 targets. They include seven people who served as president or vice president or ran for the presidency. And just outside the top 10 are John McCain, Mitt Romney and John Kerry. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian had a relatively low count of 37 jokes.

Roswell Daily Record
PAUL LESSARD SPECIAL TO THE DAILY RECORD
The Goddard Rockets defeated crosstown rival Roswell 53-12 in their annual dual for city bragging rights. The Rockets rode an unlikely victory from an unlikely grappler to garner their sixth straight victory in the annual series. The Rockets’ unlikely victor was John Anaya, who surprised the crowd with a big pin in the 195-pound weight class. Anaya, who was filling in for injured Ivan Melendez, erased a 5-0 deficit in the second period to gain a reversal and pin over Alexis Rodriguez. The Berrendo eighth-grader earned his first varsity win with the shocking fall. The Rockets didn’t need the pin to secure the dual as it was well in hand by the time Anaya had wrestled. The Rockets, who still had practice prior to the match, won all but two of the matches in the dual. Following a forfeit to Luis Mata at 113, the Rockets ran off three straight wins to take a 19-0 lead. Dylan Licon got the initial win of
the evening with a closer-than-expected 13-6 win over Davin Longoria. Longoria had been pinned by Licon earlier in the season, but used a solid third period to erase an 11-0 deficit. Chris Archibeque, wrestling at 126 for the first time, fell behind 4-0 early in the second period, but got the reversal and a pin over freshman Gabriel Luiz. At 132, the match saw an interesting scenario as the Rockets’ Chandler Lessard was taking the mat with his older brother, former all-state Rocket wrestler Lance Lessard, doing the officiating. There were no close calls, though, as Lessard (26-9) rolled to a major decision win 11-2. The Coyotes got their initial win at 138 with senior Arvis Alarcon getting a first-periSee GODDARD, Page B2

Putin ready BOYS BASKETBALL to welcome Rockets rally for 59-54 district win world LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Stroking a Persian leopard sprawled on his lap, tough-guy President Vladimir Putin showed his softer side Thursday as he prepared to welcome the world to his budget-busting Winter Olympics. Basking in the glow of support from International Olympic Committee Chairman Thomas Bach, Putin began his stay at the Sochi Games by promoting a cuddly image, visiting a group of endangered Vladimir Putin Persian leopard cubs born last summer in the mountains above the Black Sea resort. “We’ve decided to restore the population of the Persian leopard because of the Olympic Games,” Putin said. “Let’s say that because of the Olympic Games, we have restored parts of the destroyed nature.” Putin entered the cage and petted the leopard on the head. “We liked each other,” he said. Some journalists accompanying him weren’t so lucky. They apparently upset the big cat, which scratched one of them on the hand and bit another on the knee, Russian news agencies reported. In Putin’s presence later, Bach used an IOC gathering to criticize politicians for See PUTIN, Page B3
Puzzles can be great. Alone, each piece of the puzzle doesn’t mean much and may be misleading. It takes all of the pieces to make the entire picture clear. In Tuesday’s District 4-4A opener between Goddard and Artesia, there were numerous pieces that, if taken out of context, would be extremely misleading. For example, if you were told Goddard had 26 turnovers, got outscored 46-38 in the final three quarters and shot 58 percent from the free-throw line, you would probably think that the Rockets came away with a loss. What those pieces don’t tell you is that when it mattered, the Rockets delivered and came away with a 59-54 win. “First of all, when you don’t make free throws it is tough. ... How we won that game, I don’t know,” Goddard coach Kevin Jones said regarding how his team came away with a victory. “It was a great team effort. Any time you win a district game is huge. You have to defend your home floor and these boys did what they had to do, which is good. We just can’t repeat that. “It is a bittersweet win for me. I will always take a win, it is just the stuff that we did that was out of character.” One of those out of character things was allowing Artesia to even be in the See RALLY, Page B3

Bryan Barela added 16 points, Jessie Rodriguez chipped in 13 and Jose Bejarano had 10 for Hagerman. The Bobcats jumped out to a 24-17 lead after one and led 42-30 at the break.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Michael Frazier II scored 14 points, highly touted freshman Chris Walker had two crowdpleasing dunks in his debut and No. 3 Florida beat Missouri 68-58 on Tuesday night. The Gators won their 14th consecutive game and extended a school record with their 28th straight victory at home. Frazier drained three 3-pointers in a 2minute span in the second half, giving Florida some breathing room in a tight, back-and-forth game. Scottie Wilbekin finished with a careerhigh 19 points for the Gators. He was 13 of 16 from the free throw line, most of them down the stretch. Patric Young chipped in 13 points and six rebounds for the Gators (202, 9-0 Southeastern Conference). Missouri’s 3-point shooting kept the Tigers (16-6, 4-5) in it for much of the game. Missouri made 8 of 21 from behind the arc, but just 4 of 13 in the second half. The Tigers went more than 4 minutes without a point, a stretch that helped Florida build its biggest lead. Jabari Brown led the Tigers with 15 points while Jordan Clarkson added 14.
No. 8 Kansas 69, Baylor 52 WACO, Texas (AP) — Naadir Tharpe scored 22 points, nine in a go-ahead run before halftime, and Big 12-leading Kansas rebounded from its first league loss.

Gateway Chr. 58, Lake Arthur 19 Gateway Christian blew past visiting Lake Arthur in a District 3-B showdown at the Red Rock Warrior Center on Tuesday. The Warriors (4-9, 1-2 district) won the opening quarter 14-7 and stretched their lead to 30-12 by the break. They led 42-14 after three and won the fourth 16-5 to provide the final margin. Charlee Longmire led all scorers with 18 points for Gateway. Jordan Menagh added 10 and Fallon Evans had eight for the Warriors, who had eight different players score in the victory. Mayra Davila led the Panthers with nine points.
Andrew Wiggins overcame a slow start to score 14 points, while Perry Ellis had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Kansas. Wiggins, the Big 12’s top scoring freshman, finished 4-of-13 shooting and didn’t make his first basket until a half-court shot to beat the buzzer going into halftime. That capped a 14-3 run over the final 5 minutes for a 35-27 lead. Tharpe’s short jumper with 3 1⁄2 minutes left in the half broke a 25-all tie and put the Jayhawks (17-5, 8-1 Big 12) ahead to stay. Cory Jefferson had 14 points to lead Baylor (14-8, 2-7), which lost its fourth consecutive game at the Ferrell Center after a 13-game home winning streak. It’s the longest home drought since dropping six straight in 2005. No. 11 Duke 83, Wake Forest 63 DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Jabari Parker scored 21 points and Rasheed Sulaimon added 19 points for Duke (18-5, 7-3 Atlantic Coast Conference). The Blue Devils shot nearly 51 percent, hit 12 3-pointers against one of the ACC’s best perimeter defenses and used a big run at the end of the first half to roll to their eighth straight victory over their instate rivals. Devin Thomas had 14 points for the Demon Deacons (14-9, 4-6), who have lost three straight for the first time this season. They had 19 turnovers — including five straight during Duke’s decisive run. Playing without leading scorer Codi Miller-McIntyre, Wake Forest hung around for about 15 minutes before ultimately losing their 15th straight at Cameron Indoor Stadium — all by double figures. Andre Dawkins added 17 points with four 3-pointers for Duke, which won its 29th straight home game.
No. 15 Texas 59, TCU 54 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Jonathan Holmes had 20 points and a career-high 16 rebounds and Texas rallied in the second half to extend its winning streak to seven games. Holmes hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2:41 remaining, and the Longhorns (18-4, 72 Big 12) held off the Horned Frogs with several key offensive rebounds in the final 2 minutes. Cameron Ridley had 12 points and nine rebounds, including one that led to his clinching free throws after a miss by Isaiah Taylor with 7 seconds left, as the Longhorns held on following their win at home against No. 8 Kansas over the weekend. Amric Fields had 16 points and eight rebounds to lead TCU (9-12, 0-9), the only Big 12 team without a conference win. The Longhorns came into Fort Worth with four straight wins over ranked opponents.
Ohio St. 76, No. 17 Iowa 69 IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Aaron Craft had 17 points, six assists and six steals to help Ohio State to its third win in four games. LaQuinton Ross added 13 points for the Buckeyes (18-5, 5-5 Big Ten), who moved back to .500 in the league after starting a surprising 2-4. Craft’s first points of the second half came on a three-point play that put Ohio State ahead 66-59 with 1:17 left. That sealed consecutive road wins for the Buckeyes, who beat Wisconsin 59-58 on Saturday. Mike Gesell had 16 points for Iowa (176, 6-4), which shot just 3 of 20 from 3-point range and lost its second straight at home. Hawkeyes stars Devyn Marble and Aaron White combined for just 18 points. Iowa soundly defeated Ohio State in their first meeting, rallying from nine down to win 84-74 in Columbus. Iowa fell 2 1⁄2 games behind idle Michigan and Michigan State in the conference with eight games to play.
No. 18 Kentucky 80, Mississippi 64 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Willie CauleyStein broke a slump with 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Kentucky shot 60 percent in the second half. The Wildcats’ 7-foot sophomore went 7 of 8 from the field to score more points than his previous six games combined (14) while reaching double digits in rebounds for the first time in nine games. Cauley-Stein had six blocks and altered other attempts to help limit the Rebels (15-7, 6-3 Southeastern Conference) to 36 percent shooting in the
od pin. The Rockets responded with wins in the next three matches. Brian Wilson defeated Anthony Perales at 145 in a close 8-2 decision. Wilson had not wrestled since Jan. 5 and had trouble keeping up with a better-conditioned Perales. “I was really tired,” stated Wilson. “And we had a practice before the match ... and I ate right before the match.” Marcus Trujillo improved his record to 35-5 with a second-period pin over Nick Hernandez. T rujillo managed a 4-0 advantage after the first period and then used his advantage in the top position to gain the fall at 2:24. Raymond Anaya (34-3) got an 11-1 lead over Eddie Sills and then recorded the pin late in the match when he caught Sills attempting to execute a sitout. Jesus Alvarado got the other victory for the Coyotes with a pin at 1:30 at 170. The Rockets won the final four matches from there. With the score 34-12 in the Rockets’ favor, freshman Andres Villa

Aaron Harrison added 16 points while Julius Randle scored 11 of his 12 points after halftime as the Wildcats finished shooting 51 percent (26 of 51) from the field.

No. 24 Memphis 101, Rutgers 69 MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Austin Nichols scored 18 points, and Joe Jackson added 16 points and eight assists for Memphis.

got the 15-4 decision over senior Chris Snyder to seal the match for the Rockets. Villa moved to 37-5 on the year with the win. That set up the younger Anaya’s heroics. A happy Jaime Martinez was elated with his team’s per formance and Anaya’s in particular. “I guess the match of the night was with John Anaya, our eighth-grader, pinned a senior from Roswell High. Everybody was anticipating that (the fall). He stepped up and got the pin and that was the highlight of the night.” John Anaya’s surprising win was followed up with Clayton Martel garnering the fastest pin of the night in 52 seconds at 220. Eathyn Griffin, the Rockets’ lone senior, closed out the evening with a 3-1 win over a game Leonardo Anchondo to finish up the win. “We got worked is what really happened,” stated a disappointed Robert Bolanos, who is in his initial season with the Coyotes. “I thought my guys were going to match up against different wrestlers and it didn’t happen that way. I’m not satisfied with (the result). We’ve got a lot of work to do.”

They couldn’t get of f a final shot, though, and fell to 11-11 overall and 0-1 in district play. Dexter led 20-18 at the break, but trailed 29-27 going to the fourth. Anderson was a perfect 4 for 4 from beyond the arc and led Dexter with 19 points. Alex Zambrano had 10 points and Pamela Munoz added five.

the Lakers with their seventh straight defeat. Kevin Martin scored 14 of his seasonhigh-tying 32 points in the opening 10 minutes to help the Timberwolves start strong, and the NBA’s highest-scoring first-quarter team surged to a 25-point lead midway through the second period. Nash had been sidelined since Nov. 10 because of nerve problems in his back. The soon-to-be-40-year-old two-time league MVP had seven points and nine assists in 25 minutes, about 10 more than he was supposed to play. The Lakers’ reserves had a whopping 70 points, with Nick Young (24 points), Manny Harris (17 points) and former Timberwolves first-round draft pick Wes Johnson (15 points and nine rebounds) leading the way. But the Lakers still lost for the 19th time in their last 22 games and fell into a tie for last place in the Western Conference with Utah and Sacramento. This was also their first loss at Target Center in almost seven years, ending an 11game run. Those visits by the Lakers, who once called Minneapolis home, fired up the crowd like no other opponent. But this was quite the tame atmosphere, with all that prestige and intimidation vanished. After a crisp show of fast breaks and ball movement for much of the night, this felt like a football game by the end. Love landed hard on the court on his back while being fouled by Robert Sacre, but he walked carefully back to the free-throw line after a timeout to sink both shots and push the lead to 102-91 with 4:10 left. The Lakers have allowed 100-plus points in 15 straight games, their longest such streak since 17 in a row during the 1986-87 season. They shot only 27 for 38 from the line and let the Lakers creep back into a competitive range in the second half, as close as seven points, and Adelman looked disgusted after several mistakes made by his team. But Love picked up the Wolves and carried them to an important win, playing the part of Pekovic by throwing his body at the basket as often as he could. He had 18 free throws, making 13.
Bulls 101, Suns 92 PHOENIX (AP) — Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and the Bulls snapped the Suns’ five-game winning streak. The Bulls shot 45 percent from the field and had five players score in double figures, bouncing back from an ugly 99-70 loss at Sacramento on Monday. The Bulls shot 28 percent and were outrebounded 53-30 against the Kings. One night later, it was a completely different story. Jimmy Butler and D.J. Augustin had 18 points apiece for the Bulls, who won for the fifth straight time in Phoenix. Joakim Noah, who was ejected in the third quarter of the loss at Sacramento, had 14 points and 14 rebounds. Goran Dragic led Phoenix with 24 points. Channing Frye had 18.
Pacers 89, Hawks 85 ATLANTA (AP) — David West scored 22 points and Paul George added 18, helping NBA-leading Indiana get the win. The Pacers snapped a 12-game regularseason losing streak in Atlanta while improving the league’s best record to 38-10. Atlanta failed to place a starter in double figures. It had won two straight and five of seven. Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver had nine points apiece for the Hawks, but All-Star forward Paul Millsap went 2 for 11 from the field and finished with seven points. Teague made a 3-pointer to give Atlanta a 41-35 lead with 1:06 left in the second quarter, but the Hawks were outscored 3816 over the next 17 minutes.

forth affair in the game’s final 30 seconds. Gateway’s Jacob Moody tied the game at 53 with 20 seconds left with a pair of free throws, but Lake Arthur regained the lead 5 seconds later on a pair of Luis Velo free throws. After Gateway got within one on a Moody free throw, Lake Arthur (5-13, 1-1 district) inbounded the ball and Velo went racing up the sideline toward his team’s basket. As Velo passed half court, Scooby Taylor was called for a foul. At the same time, Moody was racing in from the side and made contact with Velo.
After several meetings between the officiating crew, Taylor was called for a personal foul and Moody was assessed a technical foul. Velo hit 2 of 4 from the line to make it 57-54. He was fouled again on the ensuing inbound and split a pair for the final margin. “At the end, both teams were trying to get the last possession by fouling each other,” said Gateway Christian coach John Worrall about the final stretch. “It got down to 5 seconds and we had to foul. “We ended up getting two fouls, a foul on our point guard and a foul on our forward. So they end up shooting four free throws and got the ball back in what was a (one-point) game. That’s what killed it. That was the end of the

game. The Rockets (14-9, 1-0 district) opened the game with an intensity Artesia couldn’t match and, by the end of the first 8 minutes, the Rockets had forced 13 Artesia turnovers and led 21-8. “We came out with more energy and were aggressive,” Jones said about his team’s hot start. Artesia turned the tables on the Rockets in the second quarter, however, outscoring Goddard 208. Goddard opened the second half with a 4-0 spurt that pushed its lead to five, but the Bulldogs took their first lead of the game with a 9-0 run that was spear-headed by Deion Wesson (five points) and James Lawson (four points). The Rockets reclaimed the lead with a 9-2 run of their own and the two teams played hot-potato with the lead until midway through the fourth. With the score tied at 51, Artesia (12-10, 0-1) seemed to take control of the game when Denzyl Garcia was fouled while driving to the basket. Displeased with the call, Trent Johnson smacked the ground and was called for a technical. Garcia knocked down 3 of 4, but the Bulldogs couldn’t capitalize on the extra possession as the Rocket defense stepped up and forced a turnover. With 2:44 left, Goddard’s Rhet Maxey tied the game for the final time when he nailed a triple. Maxey’s trey sent the Bulldogs reeling and Goddard got possession back after another turnover. After running nearly a minute off the clock, Maxey once again lined up a shot from beyond the arc and drilled it, giving Goddard a 57-54 lead. Despite struggling with his shot for most of the game, Maxey came through when it mattered most, something that didn’t surprise Jones. “He made two huge shots. Rhet is pretty mentally tough and he is a shooter,” he said. “A shooter doesn’t stay cold forever. It could be that one shot at the end of the game or the one shot at the beginning of the game. His happened to come at the end of the game.” Following two defensive stops, Goddard’s Gavin Hess sealed the win by hitting two free throws with 5 seconds left. Josh Wagner led Goddard with 22 points, while Johnson chipped in with 14.

game.” Lake Arthur coach Wes Weems gave a similar description of the end of the game and said the game came down to a few calls. “Take nothing away from (Gateway), they played a heck of a game. Their coach did a great job with them,” Weems said. “It came down to a couple of calls that happened to go our way tonight and we made some free throws down the stretch.” For all the confusion at the end, the game was wildly entertaining from the start. Gateway built a 19-10 lead in the first, but Lake Arthur battled back to take a 30-29 lead. Gateway scored late in the second to take a 31-30 advantage into the break. Gateway pulled ahead 38-32 in

day, Goddard coach Greg Torres had such a list. Torres’ list consisted of three keys — rebounding, turnovers and free throws. While the Rockets had the edge in the turnover department and on the glass, the charity stripe belonged to the Bulldogs. Artesia (13-8, 1-0) shot 66 percent from the free-throw line, while the Rockets went 8 of 20 in a 42-39 Artesia win. “I told them there would be three key stats more than likely,” Torres said about the difference in the game. “I felt like rebounds, limiting our turnovers and free throws were going to be huge. If we could win in those categories, we would be fine. Rebounding, we didn’t give up a lot of offensive rebounds and we crashed

Lake Arthur took the lead for a second time 2 1⁄2 minutes into the fourth and led 48-46 with 4:54 remaining. The Warriors (4-14, 1-2) rattled off five in a row over a minutelong stretch to go up 51-48 before the Panthers scored five in a row of their own for a 53-51 advantage. The two Moody freebies that tied the game at 53 came 24 seconds later, setting up the crazy finish. “I was frustrated with our turnovers at the end of the game. The refs, I thought they called a very good game,” Worrall said. “I didn’t agree with the last call, but that’s the way it goes. We shouldn’t
the boards hard. “I felt like we handled the ball well, but free throws came back to bite us; 8 of 20 in a three-point game.” Through 2 1 ⁄ 2 quarters, it didn’t seem like Goddard’s (9-13, 0-1 district) free-throw woes would matter. Artesia held a double-digit lead through much of the first half and led 31-19 with 1:33 left in the third. The Rockets closed the quarter with three points from Baylee Robinson — who was plagued with foul trouble for most of the first half — to make it 3122 heading into the final quarter. After forcing a Bulldog turnover to start the fourth, Robinson snagged an errant shot on the other end and made the putback. Desarae Flores came up with a steal on the ensuing Artesia possession and turned it into an easy layup that cut the lead to five less than 40 seconds into the quarter. The deficit remained five until Flores hit a triple from the corner with
understanding of what it really means to single out the Olympic Games to make an ostentatious gesture which allegedly costs nothing but produces international headlines,” said Bach, a German lawyer and Olympic gold medal winner. The buildup to the Olympics has been overshadowed by Western criticism of the anti-gay law and Russia’s record on human rights and other issues, making Sochi among the most politically charged games in years. Obama and key European leaders are shunning the Olympics. Obama, in a clear message against the antigay laws, has sent a delegation to Sochi made up of

have been in that situation. “Our kids fought hard. That’s a game we should have won. We got away from pounding the ball inside which we were doing good at in the first half.” Weems said the victory was big for his team. “It’s big in our district. In our district, you’ve got Hondo, who is No. 1 in the state, and the rest of us are all battling for No. 2. So, to get a win after losing to Hondo ... is big.” Velo led the way for Lake Arthur with 21 points. Miguel Rubio added 10 points. Johnny Worrall paced Gateway Christian with a double-double of 21 points and 21 rebounds. He also had five blocks and three steals. Moody added 14 points.
3:42 left that sent the Goddard fans into a frenzy. The ecstacy was short lived, however, as Artesia’s Madison Willingham beat Goddard down the court for a deuce 9 seconds later. Willingham’s bucket was the start of a 6-0 Bulldog run that made it 3931 with 2:49 left. Goddard had one more run in it, though. Two quick bunnies from Robinson sandwiched a Bulldog turnover that made it 39-35. Following a stop at the other end, senior guard Christina Ornelas hit a pair from the charity stripe to cut the lead to two. That’s as close as the Rockets would get as the Bulldogs went 3 of 4 from the charity stripe to seal the victory. Robinson led Goddard with 14 points, all of which came in the second half. Cheyenne Lopez and Flores added nine points each for the Rockets. games in a city that barely had 10 to 15 percent of the necessary infrastructure,” Putin told the IOC. “You believed in us, you believed in the Russian character which can overcome all difficulties.” Putin’s visit to the leopard preserve was designed as a show of environmental concern during the Sochi Games, which open Friday. The sanctuary was established five years ago as an Olympics-related project. The former KGB operative has thrown open the Kremlin treasury to finance the Olympics, lavishing a record $51 billion on sports facilities and transportation infrastructure in Sochi.
three openly gay athletes — tennis great Billie Jean King, 2006 Olympic hockey medalist Caitlin Cahow, and figure skater Brian Boitano. Speaking to the same IOC meeting, Putin said nothing about the hard issues confronting the Sochi Games — cost overruns, unfinished hotels and an uproar in some countries over gay rights. But he boasted that Russia had undertaken the monumental effort of starting from scratch in Sochi and completing the needed construction in a short time, something he said it took other countries decades to prepare. “We realize what a difficult decision this was to hold the

After years of preparation and training, thousands of athletes from all over the world are ready to hit the snow and ice for the 22nd Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. This week, The Mini Page takes a look at some of the hard work that has taken place to hold this 18-day sporting event, as well as the Winter Paralympic Games, which will be held in Sochi in March. We start with looking at the Winter Olympics by the numbers: s 2,409: The number of days that have passed since Sochi was awarded the 2014 Winter Olympics on July 4, 2007, and the start of competition. Sochi was selected as host over Pyeongchang, South Korea, and Salzburg, Austria. Pyeongchang was later selected to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. s 2,500-plus: The number of athletes expected to compete in Sochi. s 86: Qualifying nations that will participate in the 2014 Winter Olympics (as of early January).
Female short-track speedskaters from China, the United States and South Korea race around a curve at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010. â€œShort tracksâ€? are the same size as a hockey rink. In Sochi, there are 12 medal events in speedskating and eight more in shorttrack speedskating.
