House opens first immigration hearing WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Tuesday the nation’s immigration system is “in desperate need of repair” as he opened Congress’ first hearing this year on immigration. Whether Congress will be able to agree on how to fix it remained unclear.



The session came as President Barack Obama pushes for swift action to pass immigration legislation and as bipartisan Senate negotiators work to craft a bill. But in a sign of the difficulties to come, the

chair man, Judiciary Republican Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, cautioned against a “rush to judgment” and said each piece of the issue must be examined in detail.

Goodlatte said there are lots of questions about how any large-scale legalization program would work, how much it would cost and how it would prevent illegal immigration in future.

Obama supports a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country, something many Republi-

cans oppose. Goodlatte questioned whether another approach might be possible: “Are there options we should consider between the extremes of mass deportation and a pathway to citizenship for those not lawfully present in the United States?” he asked. His question underscored the discomfort of many majority House Republicans with granting eventual citizenship to illegal immigrants, something conserSee HEARING, Page A3

The jury convicted Gregory Hobbs, 22, of voluntary manslaughter Thursday after three days of testimony. The charges stemmed from the slaying of Ruben “Hammer” Archuleta Sr. and Ruben Archuleta Jr. on the night of June 15, 2012, that occurred in the 300 block of East Bonney Street. According to the original criminal complaint, officers arrived two to three minutes after hearing the gunfire to a scene of chaos with 15 to 20 witnesses.

The House Consumer and Public Affairs voted Tuesday 3-2 to table a joint resolution to allow voters to decide whether to amend Article 20 of the state’s constitution to define marriage as “the union of one man and one woman.” Rep. Nora Espinoza, RRoswell, a sponsor of House Joint Resolution 4, said that more than 30 other states have passed similar legislation. “It would seem New Mexico voters should be given the right to define marriage for themselves,” she said.

Murphy acknowledged that there were discrepancies between witness testimonies and the initial statements made to police. “Portions of each witness’ testimony could be contradicted by the physical evidence. None of it lines up perfectly. ... It is not surprising in the case of such a traumatic event, such a chaotic event, that the testimony would vary.” He said the State conceded with Rubin Jr., who had armed himself before the confrontation, that his death could be considered was selfdefense. However, Rubin Sr. was unarmed. In the previous day’s testimony, See HOBBS, Page A3

House committee tables same-sex marriage resolution ILISSA GILMORE RECORD STAFF WRITER

Voters re-approved Tuesday the 2 mill tax levy of the Roswell Independent School District that provides funding for maintaining buildings during the school district election. According to unofficial election results, the mill levy received 986 votes in favor and 275 in opposition. “The passage of the mill levy was a huge vote for education in Roswell,” said RISD Superintendent Tom Burris. “Funds will maintain facilities and provide

Farmington, also presented the bill and said marriage has always been about men and women “getting together, making babies.” “Men and women make babies, society needs babies and babies need moms and dads,” he said. “America’s greatness has come from traditional family values and that is important to its continued greatness. “I support traditional marriage, not from bigotry or hatred, but for love of my children and the nation.” He said the resolution would not change any laws in place, but act as a qualifier as to who could marry. Committee member

Rep. Jason Harper, R-Rio Rancho, voted against tabling and said that since the committee had put through a resolution by Rep. Brian Egolf, DSanta Fe, which would allow voters to decide whether to amend Article 20 to allow same-sex marriage, it would have been fair to do the same for HJR 4. Committee member Rep. Gail Chasey, DAlbuquerque, who voted to table the resolution, expressed her reservation about putting any civil rights questions on the ballot because “it’s not something people should be voting on.” “We have a representative democracy,” she said.

Top paid legislator got nearly $21,000 in 2012

SANTA FE (AP) — The highest compensated member of the New Mexico Legislature collected nearly $21,000 last year under a system that provides no annual salary to lawmakers but grants them daily expense reimbursements. Sen. Richard Martinez, an Espanola Democrat, received $20,922 for last year’s legislative session and attending committee meetings during the year, according to information from the Department of Finance and Administration obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request. Sen. Carlos Cisneros, a Questa Democrat, collected $19,734, and former Rep. Ray Begaye, a Shiprock Democrat who lost his re-election bid, received $19,096. Compensation for legislators cost taxpayers $1.2 million last year. Payments averaged $11,061 for the 112 lawmakers who served in the 30-day legislative session last year. That excludes reimbursements for one senator who was appointed in late October to fill a vacancy. Begaye topped the compensation list with $29,000 in 2011, when the Legislature held a 60-day session and a special session on redistricting. New Mexico stands out as the only state that doesn’t provide a yearly salary to its legislators, according to the See PAID, Page A3

Congress considers limits on drone strikes

Robert Servantez, 28, is wanted for burglary and battery. Servantez is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weight 140 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. Anyone having information about Servantez is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594-TIPS (8477).

WASHINGTON (AP) — Uncomfortable with the Obama administration’s use of deadly drones, a growing number in Congress is looking to limit America’s authority to kill suspected terrorists, even U.S. citizens. The Democratic-led outcry was emboldened by the revelation in a newly surfaced Justice Department memo that shows drones can strike against a wider range of threats, with less evidence, than previously believed. The drone program, which has been used from Pakistan across the Middle East and into North Africa to find and kill an unknown number of suspected terrorists, is expected to be a top topic of debate when the Senate Intelligence Committee grills John Brennan, the White House’s pick for CIA chief, at a hearing Thursday. The White House on Tuesday defended its lethal drone program by citing the very laws that some in Congress once believed were appropriate in the years immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks but now think may be too broad. “It has to be in the agenda of this Congress to reconsider the scope of action of drones and use of deadly force by the United States around the world because the original authorization of use of force, I think, is being strained to its limits,” Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said in a recent interview. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the

No. 2 Democrat in the House, said Tuesday that “it deserves a serious look at how we make the decisions in government to take out, kill, eliminate, whatever word you want to use, not just American citizens but other citizens as well.” Hoyer added: “We ought to carefully review our policies as a country.” The Senate Foreign Relations Committee likely will hold hearings on U.S. drone policy, an aide said Tuesday, and Chairman Robert Menendez, DN.J., and the panel’s top Republican, Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, both have quietly expressed concerns about the deadly operations. And earlier this week, a group of 11 Democratic and Republican senators urged President Barack Obama to release a classified Justice Department legal opinion justifying when U.S. counterterror missions, including drone strikes, can be used to kill American citizens abroad. Without those documents, it’s impossible for Congress and the public to decide “whether this authority has been properly defined, and whether the president’s power to deliberately kill Americans is subject to appropriate limitations and safeguards,” the senators wrote. It was a repeated request after receiving last June an unclassified Justice Department memo, which fell short of giving the senators all the information they requested.

First detailed publicly by NBC News late Monday, the memo for the first time outlines the Obama administration’s decision to kill al-Qaida terror suspects without any evidence that specific and imminent plots are being planned against the United States.

“The threat posed by al-Qaida and its associated forces demands a broader concept of imminence in judging when a person continually planning terror attacks presents an imminent threat,” concluded the document.

The memo was immediately decried by civil liberties groups as “flawed” and “profoundly disturbing” — especially in light of 2011 U.S. drone strikes in Yemen that killed three American citizens: Anwar al-Awlaki, his 16-year-old-son and Samir Khan. Al-Awlaki was linked to the planning and execution of several attacks targeting U.S. and Western interests, including the attempt to down a Detroit-bound airliner in 2009 and the plot to bomb cargo planes in 2010. His son was killed in a separate strike on a suspected al-Qaida den. Khan was an al-Qaida propagandist.

White House spokesman Jay Carney, echoing comments Brennan made in a speech last April, called the strikes legal, ethical and wise and said they are covered by a law that Congress approved allowing the use of military force against al-Qaida.

Military gear taken from UFO Storage Govs head GOP minority recruiting


•Police responded to UFO Storage, 3612 S. Main St., Monday, where four storage facilities had their locks cut. According to the report, only two of the four units had items taken. From one, the subjects removed an Ecobrand grass trimmer, valued at $300. The subjects

stole a quantity of military gear from the second unit, including a set of military dress blue uniforms, several camouflage unifor ms, dress boots, along with other items. The losses were estimated at $2,500. •Police were called to Lighthouse Laundry, 866 W. Alameda, Saturday,

Proposal: Recycle nuke sites’ scrap metal SANTA FE (AP) — The federal government is drawing opposition from the steel industry and others for its proposal to commercially recycle scrap metal from Los Alamos National Laboratory and other nuclear sites. The Department of Energy recommends that scrap metal exposed on its surface to radiation be recycled if the metal is uncontaminated or if radiation levels are low enough. The department released a draft environmental assessment in December. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican ( ), the proposal includes about 350 metric tons of scrap metal at Los Alamos. The scrap would include metal from file cabinets, tools, equipment and structural steel from demolished buildings. It would be mixed with other scrap metal and melted down for use in new products. The head of a steel producers group said the proposal could risk contamination of food cans, building beams and car parts.

“Scrap metal that is potentially contaminated by radiation should not be released into the general stream of commerce. Period,” Thomas J. Gibson, president and CEO of the American Iron and Steel Institute, said in a Jan. 30 statement. Robert Middaugh, a spokesman for the National Nuclear Security Administration, said “only empirically defined clean metal will be candidate for release.”

“The material we propose to release is uncontaminated and poses no more risk than the scrap metals that ordinary citizens and small businesses routinely place in their recycling bins,” he said in an email statement. “Safety is the only thing that matters here and we will not move forward with any recycling unless we’re absolutely confident that it is entirely safe.” The vast majority of scrap metal, he said, is contaminated with radioactive materials. But all materials that were in radiological areas would be “surveyed and confirmed to be appropriate for release.”

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Republican leaders are launching an effort led by Hispanic governors in New Mexico and Nevada in an attempt to make up ground with Latino voters who have largely turned away from the GOP. The nation’s only Hispanic governors plan to recruit minority candidates and groom them for state-level offices with an eye toward creating a pool of candidates for higher positions in the future, the Republican State Leadership Committee said in a statement. New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, both moderate Republicans seen as rising stars in the party, will focus on attracting candidates and raising money for upcoming elections, the group said. Supporters see the move as an opportunity to expand the party’s influence. “This is a good thing and great way to reshape the Republican Party,” said Bob Quasius, founder of the Minnesota-based Cafe Con Leche Republicans, a group that seeks to make the GOP more welcoming to immigrants. He added that after the November elections, several Republicans “realized that they need to do a better job at reaching out to Latino voters.” Robert L. Fortes, a Boston-based GOP strategist who advised campaigns for former Sen. Scott Brown and former Gov. Mitt Romney, called the move “fan-

tastic” and said such efforts would help Republicans who are trying to make inroads in Boston’s black and Latino neighborhoods. “If we make minority voters more competitive and not leave it one-sided, we can really transform the electorate across the country,” Fortes said. Detractors, however, predict it will be mere windowdressing designed to hide a larger problem. “Simply changing the color of the icing won’t do it,” said Sandra Tenorio, chair of the Tejano Democrats, a Hispanic political group in Texas. Tenorio said “it’s at best naive and at worst insulting to think that Hispanics will vote for someone because of their last names.” Javier Gonzalez, chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, said the Republican Party needed to change its positions on education,

health care and fighting poverty to truly make progress with Hispanic voters.

Martinez and Sandoval worked on minority outreach last year before the presidential election. In the November elections, however, President Barack Obama took about 70 percent of the Hispanic vote. Additionally, about 9 in 10 black voters backed Obama. And among women, around 55 percent voted for the Democratic incumbent as he defeated Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Hobbs and his friend Juan Gonzalez described a life-or -death struggle with the Archuletas. During the closing statement Murphy reminded the jurors that neither men exhibited any sign of injury. He told the Daily Record: “They showed no scuf fs, no scrapes, no scratches. Juan Gonzales said he was struck with a gun, but he had no marks indicating he was struck. Hobbs’ clothing was in pristine condition. Meanwhile Hammer’s shirt was torn.” In the previous day’s testimony, Hobbs said he was 5-feet, 3-inches tall. Meanwhile, the autopsy report indicated that Hammer was 5-feet, 11inches and 189 pounds.

positions. Several questioned whether there’s a way short of citizenship to deal with illegal immigrants, and others on the panel agreed on the need to allow more high-skilled workers to enter the country, a priority for technology companies. “Let’s not let the more contentious issues and the idea of comprehensive refor m prevent us from passing something,” said Rep. Spencer Bachus, RAla. It was part of a larger shift by Republicans who have begun to embrace action on immigration reform in the wake of the November elections in the jury to consider “the improbability of size,” saying would not that leave a “reasonable man in fear of immediate bodily harm?” She noted that Hammer’s 14-year -old son admitted that his father was angry and testified that he saw his father punch Gonzalez. She discussed the fact that both father and son had threatened both Hobbs and Gonzalez. Bell reviewed New Mexico’s law regarding self defense. “When faced with an attack, you need not retreat. You may stand your ground. It doesn’t matter if you are kid from the south side of town.” She pointed to the evidence presented by the Of fice of the Medical Investigator that Rubin Sr. had four wounds, one at the top of the shoulder which could suggest Hammer and they were locked in a struggle for a weapon. She too acknowledged that Hammer’s shirt was torn, as if it had been pulled down as they

to a federal rate for what’s tax deductible for room and board in Santa Fe while on business. The rate automatically goes up or down as the government adjusts the rate for inflation. The expense reimbursements had been $75 a day before the constitutional change. Martinez favors switching to a system that provides a yearly salary to legislators. The per diem payments fail to adequately cover expenses, including wear and tear on a lawmaker’s vehicle for traveling to meetings, he said. Martinez served on six interim committees last year, but lawmakers are paid mileage to drive to those meetings. “Maybe if we had a decent salary we could hire a part-time clerk or something to help us with our mail. I carry a mail bag with me everywhere I go,” said Martinez, a retired magistrate judge. A change in the pay would require voters to approve a constitutional

change. “I am not sure if the public would go along with it because I think they feel that we don’t do anything anyway,” said Martinez. Paul Gessing, president of the conservative Rio Grande Foundation, said he’s satisfied with the compensation system and doesn’t consider last year’s payments to lawmakers as excessive. “Certainly within the taxpayers’ pocketbooks, even paying $20,000 a year to all legislators wouldn’t be extreme. It’s just a question of fairness and the legislators not trying to take advantage of the system,” said Gessing. Questions arose last year about possible double-dipping problems in the Legislature’s expense system. Begaye was reimbursed by NCSL for driving a rental car to the seminar but also was paid mileage by the Legislature. He later retur ned some NCSL expense money.

Bulgaria links Hezbollah Iranian leader visits Egypt to attack on Israelis

SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) — Hezbollah was behind a bus attack that killed five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last year, investigators said Tuesday, describing a sophisticated bombing carried out by a terrorist cell that included Canadian and Australian citizens. The announcement brought renewed pressure on the European Union from the U.S., Israel and Canada to designate the group a terrorist organization and to crack down on its fundraising operations across Europe. The EU, which regards Hezbollah as a legitimate political organization, has resisted such a move. Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said two of the suspects in the July 2012 attack had been living in Lebanon for years — one with a Canadian passport and the other with an Australian one. He said investigators had traced their activities back to their home countries. “We have well-grounded reasons to suggest that the two were members of the militant wing of Hezbollah,” Tsvetanov said. A third suspect entered Bulgaria with them on June 28, he said, without giving details. Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati condemned the attack and said his country would cooperate

fully. Hezbollah, a Shiite militant group and political party in Lebanon that emerged in response to Israel’s 1982 invasion, has been linked to attacks and kidnappings on Israeli and Jewish interests around the world. The group has denied involvement in the Bulgaria bombing, and Hezbollah officials in Beirut declined comment Tuesday. The bomb exploded as the Israeli tourists were on their way from the airport to their hotel in the Black Sea resort of Burgas. The blast also killed a Bulgarian bus driver and the suspected bomber, a tall and lanky pale-skinned man wearing a baseball cap and dressed like a tourist. Although it was initially believed to be a suicide bombing, Europol Director Rob Wainwright told The Associated Press that investigators now believe the bomber never intended to die. He said a Europol expert who analyzed a fragment of a circuit board determined that the bomb was detonated remotely. He said investigators were still looking into who detonated it and how one of the suspected bombers was killed. Bulgarian investigators found no links to Iran, which Israel had accused of playing a role in the attack. The findings increased

pressure on Europe to declare Hezbollah a terrorist organization. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the investigation “further corroboration of what we have already known, that Hezbollah and its Iranian patrons are orchestrating a worldwide campaign of terror that is spanning countries and continents.” “We hope the Europeans learn the proper conclusions from this about the true character of Hezbollah,” Netanyahu said. The Obama administration called on Europe to take “proactive action” to disrupt Hezbollah. In strongly worded statements, Secretary of State John Kerry and White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the Europeans, along with other countries that have balked at imposing sanctions on Hezbollah, must act to prevent additional attacks.

CAIRO (AP) — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to Cairo on Tuesday, the first by an Iranian leader in more than three decades, highlights efforts by Egypt’s Islamist leader to thaw long frigid ties between the two regional heavyweights. Although the official welcome was warm, there was unscripted discord from Sunni protesters angry over Iran’s support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, as well as decades of sectarian animosity between Shiite-led Iran and the region’s Sunni majority. At one point, Ahmadinejad was forced to flee an ancient mosque in downtown Cairo after a Syrian protester took off his shoes and threw them at him. Later, anti-Iranian protesters raised their shoes up while blocking the main gates to Al-Azhar, the Sunni world’s most prestigious religious institution, where Egypt’s most prominent cleric chided Ahmadinejad for interfering in the affairs of Sunni nations. The protests illustrate the limits to how far and how quickly Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammed Morsi can go in reaching out to Iran: His Sunni allies at home view mainly Shiite Iran as a bitter rival, and Cairo can’t afford to alienate Washington and Gulf Arab states who seek to isolate Tehran. The three-day visit, centered around an Islamic summit, was an attempt by Morsi to strike an independent foreign policy and reassert Egypt’s historic regional leadership role following the

ouster of Hosni Mubarak, a close U.S. ally who shared Washington’s deep suspicions of Tehran. Such a visit by an Iranian leader would have been unthinkable under Mubarak. Morsi gave Ahmadinejad a red-carpet welcome on the tarmac at Cairo airport, shaking his hand, hugging and exchanging a kiss on each check. The two leaders then sat down for a 20-minute talk that focused on the civil war in Syria, security officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media. Iran is Damascus’ closest regional ally, while Egypt is among those that have called on Assad to step down. Still, the chasm inherited from 34 years of bitter relations and the rift between overwhelmingly Sunni Egypt and Iran’s Shiite leadership were on display. Sunni-Shiite tensions dominated talks between Ahmadinejad and Egypt’s most prominent cleric, Sheik Ahmed el-Tayeb, who upbraided the Iranian leader on a string of issues and warned against Iranian interference in Gulf nations, particularly Bahrain, where the ruling Sunni minority has faced protests by the Shiite majority. El-Tayeb said attempts to spread Shiite Islam in mainly Sunni Arab nations were unacceptable and called for a halt to bloodshed in Syria, where Tehran’s ally Assad has been battling rebels, according to a statement by Al-Azhar about the meeting.

Licenses for illegal immigrants, plus shorter campaigns

New Mexicans weary of the contretemps over illegal immigrants and drivers’ licenses, which has engulfed them since Susana Martinez hit the campaign trail back in 2010, were probably surprised to lear n that a new law in Illinois permits immigrants without papers to apply for licenses in that state. So there are now four states that have such laws on their books: New Mexico, Utah, Washington and Illinois. Four states har dly a bandwagon makes, but with the almost decade-long blockade of anything smacking of immigration reform apparently coming to an end, a number of other states are also toying with the idea. California, with its huge illegal immigrant population, has long grappled with the problems of unlicensed drivers on





its streets and roadways. Last month the Los Angeles Times reported on a recent study by the California Motor Vehicle Department that finds “Unlicensed drivers in California — the vast majority of whom are illegal immigrants — are nearly three times as likely to cause a fatal crash as licensed drivers.” Why? Well, the study explained, simply “meeting the modest requirements necessary to get a license — passing a written exam and driving test — improves road safety and helps

Roswell Daily Record

reduce the several thousand fatalities that occur in the state (of California) each year.” Gov. Martinez has asked state lawmakers to strike New Mexico’s law allowing illegal immigrants to apply for drivers’ permits, and a number of legislators, on both sides of the aisle, are reportedly working to modify aspects of that law, if not rescinding it altogether. And who knows? The 2013 Legislature could well adjourn without doing a single thing with the law as it now stands. Last week the House Labor and Human Resources Committee tabled a bill that would have repealed the existing drivers’ license law under which illegal immigrants may seek permits. Nor, at this writing, is there a similar measure in the works over in the Senate. On the other hand, the Legislature doesn’t adjour n until

March. As the nation’s first Hispanic woman to hold the of fice of governor in any of our states, Gov. Martinez has gotten a good deal of political mileage and national exposure out of her stance on illegal immigrants and drivers’ licenses. But having tried twice to wipe it from the books, were she to fail at this session — even with the vague compromises about which she has hinted — it will probably be the end of the road for Martinez’s fight against the law. As political “issues” go, it served her well in her 2010 campaign. It’s not apt to do her a lot of good in 2014. Speaking of 2014, a newlyelected Doña Ana County state representative, Democrat Bill McCamley of Mesilla Park, has intr oduced one of the most novel pieces of legislation to be

proposed at the Legislature in a long time. For those among us (this reporter included) who yearn for a respite from the perpetual political campaigning that has come to mark our era, McCamley’s proposal promises the relief we seek by limiting state campaigns in New Mexico to just 90 days. It would not go into ef fect until after the 2014 election. It has gotten next to no press attention. One court or another would likely declare it unconstitutional on fr ee speech grounds if it were to become law. And it almost certainly hasn’t a prayer of making it to the governor’s desk for her signature or veto. Indeed, it too was tabled in committee last week. But wouldn’t it have been nice? © New Mexico News Services 2013

Immigration reform

Moral reasons? Check. Economic reasons? Check. Practical reasons? Check. These are just some of the reasons why political leaders in the United States need to enact immigration reform and stop dickering over the details. That’s not to say that there won’t be complications to immigration reform, including strain on the governments and resources of border states where immigrant children go to school and families receive health care. Those can and should be addressed. But xenophobia and punishment of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States are not legitimate reasons to oppose reform. On a practical level, the mind boggles at the 2010 estimate by the Center for American Progress of what it would cost to round up and deport an immigrant population that is roughly the size of the population of Ohio: $288 billion. Probably not a good way to reduce the deficit. The Supreme Court already has determined that being an undocumented worker — or the child of parents who entered the country without proper authorization or who overstayed a work visa — is not necessarily a crime. In ruling last year on Arizona’s terrible “show-us-your-papers” immigration law, the justices ruled that local authorities did not have the right to detain individuals based on immigration status alone. “Amnesty” has become a buzzword, but what about “forgiveness”? What’s wrong with forgiveness for the millions of immigrants who are living in the shadows of a nation that should value them for their work ethic and contributions to our culture, our society and our economy? On the whole, immigrants who enter the country legally have proved to be an asset, especially when it comes to economic growth, business development and academic achievement in science, technology and engineering. Columnist Ezra Klein wrote in The Washington Post on Thursday that about onetenth of the people in the United States are foreign-born. But more than a quarter of U.S. technology and engineering businesses started in the decade that ended in 2005 had a foreign-born owner. Half of all tech startups in Silicon Valley had a foreign-born founder; a quarter of the Nobel laureates based in the United States the past 50 years were born elsewhere; and about half of the Ph.D.s now working in the science and technology fields were not born here. Immigrants start businesses and file patents at a significantly higher rate than their U.S.-born counterparts, and immigrants have been shown to lift wages overall. Clearly there’s a difference between a farm worker who enters the country illegally and a young person who enters the country on a student visa and obtains a work card and then citizenship. But if the nation embraced all immigrants willing to walk the path to citizenship, the benefits would be huge. Down the road, as the nation’s demographics and politics change, the urge to punish and the resistance to forgiveness will subside. The ambitious young Republican leader, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and the grizzled GOP veteran, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, are lighting the path for their party: Stronger borders and a tough path to legal citizenship. At this moment, that’s the best we’re going to get. President Barack Obama has warned that if Congress doesn’t overhaul immigration this year, he will force lawmakers’ hands by insisting on a quick vote on a bill that he will craft. There’s too much at stake politically for Republicans to risk that. The wiser ones will agree to the deal they are being offered; the less wise will listen to tea-party absolutists and drive their party further toward irrelevance. The greatness that America embodies attracts the best citizens that foreign countries have to offer. Letting them share — and contribute — fully in America’s bounty will lift us all. Guest Editorial The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Government should not override religious beliefs

Under pressure from religious and conservative groups, the Obama administration has offered another compromise on the issue of birth control coverage within the Affordable Care Act. While exempting churches and some religiously affiliated institutions, such as hospitals and universities, from supplying the coverage, the new proposal calls for their employees to receive stand-alone private insurance policies providing birth control coverage at no cost. Insurance companies will foot the bill, but only the naive can possibly think the cost won’t find its way back to




the institution in the form of higher health premiums. Numerous lawsuits filed against this and other portions of “Obamacare” will proceed and for good reason: the federal gover nment seems intent on setting rules on matters of conscience and worse, defining what constitutes a church, or religious institu-

DEAR DOCTOR K: How can I help care for my elderly mother? She lives alone, but not close enough for me to visit regularly. DEAR READER: My father died young, but my mother lived into her late 70s. She lived 3,000 miles away, and alone. As she started to lose some of her energy and independence, it was pretty stressful for me. You just can’t know what’s going on with the person you love. Supervising care and handling problems that arise are difficult, too. Here are some tips I followed. I hope they can ease some of your difficulties: — Book regular trips. When you visit your mother, try to arrive at the beginning of the week. That way, you’ll have several weekdays to handle problems and line up

Green says, “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.” That mandate includes, in addition to contraceptive coverage in employees’ health care, “preventive services,” including “morningafter” pills and other drugs, which Green considers abortifacients. After Hobby Lobby’s appeal to Justice Sonia Sotomayor was rejected, the Christian Post reports the company then made plans to

‘Fact sheet’ shows local veterans lose once again Roswell Daily Record

The following is a commentary which I had hoped would not be necessary, but knowing in my heart of hearts it probably would be necessary, here it is. Not wishing to “sabotage� an important community resources workshop, I didn’t let the dogs out until today (while the workshop is being conducted). As I said before, I hope the veteran turnout is good, as our veterans and the community need to continue working together. If the tur nout is not, the VA will of course say that it is because veterans don’t really have a problem “down here.� I will address that fallacy with some hard-core facts next week. When yet another round of southeaster n New Mexico/Albuquerque VA “negotiations� began last May with a coalition set up by Congressman Steve Pearce to solve our medical access problems, we were promised by the VA a set of guidelines which would make our life a little easier “down here.� The VA guidelines discussed were received last week in a “fact sheet.� However, the fact sheet



regurgitated the exact same rhetoric (unchanged for more than 12 years) we have seen over and over following our “negotiations� with Albuquerque VA. If I were in a position of power within the government, now would be the time I would pull out the lightning bolts. The communication from the VA delivering the fact sheet was as follows: “As I mentioned on the phone, in November we met with Mayor Jur ney and Mrs. (concerned veteran advocate), as leaders of the Coalition, to identify specific concerns related to Veteran care in your community. I documented these issues and requested response from the New Mexico VA Healthcare System in

Albuquerque. They documented the responses to those concerns in the attached fact sheet. While my original intent was to go directly back to the Mayor and Mrs. (concerned veteran advocate), my understanding is that Mrs. (concerned veteran advocate) has had to resign from the Coalition due to personal reasons. My 3 emails to the Mayor have not been answered. As you can see, it has been over a month and a half since we have had this information in our possession.� (Vet advocate comment: Notwithstanding, the fact sheet presented absolutely no change or improvements in our access problems, which continue to be unchanged for the last 12 years). One new piece of information, however, has infinitely solved the mystery of why four past and present secretaries of the Department of Veterans Affairs cannot change those problems (even after two promised they would commit full resources to solving those problems).

A neighbor checked in with my mother every day, and vice versa. If my mother was going to be away, she let the neighbor know. They were good and trusted friends. The neighbor had a key to my mother’s apartment. One day, my mother didn’t answer the phone when the neighbor called. Mom’s car was in the garage. The neighbor entered her apartment and discovered that she had died in her sleep the night before. Her loss hit me hard, but that was how she wanted to go. And I took comfort in knowing she had felt safe and secure in the last years of her life. (Dr. Komaroff is a physician and professor at Harvard Medical School.

made an interesting statement when asked why the secretaries didn’t follow through with their promises. The response by the VA director was that the department secretaries really have no affect on the day-to-day operations within the regions and states. The secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs is merely a figurehead. That has become abundantly clear! To adequately analyze the “fact sheet� is going to take more than one column to adequately demonstrate, once again, how we are continuously being “misdirected� and totally blown off by the Albuquerque VA administrators. Today I have included only a few of the blatant misdirections, but will submit a more indepth analysis to our “local team.� I will also give you a more comprehensive demonstration of our ongoing “dead-end� outcomes. One item in the “fact sheet� is as follows: access to primary care — “Primary Care appointments are available within 14 days at the Artesia VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic. Appointments

can be scheduled up to 90 days in advance. For acute needs, a nurse is available to speak with the veteran by phone to evaluate needs. The primary care provider can also speak with the veteran by phone to evaluate needs. Acute appointments are available daily based upon assessed needs.� Unfortunately, this has not been the case. We have the testimony of several veterans who have said they were instructed to either “come in and wait till the end of the day, and even then you may not be seen. Your best bet is to go to the emergency room.� We also have several testimonies showing emergency room visits denied payment by the VA. Also, veterans with immediate medical problems cannot wait two weeks or 90 days to be seen. Although there is much, much more, I am out of space for today. Rest assured I will give you a complete analysis of the “fact sheet� and show beyond a shadow of a doubt how we are continuously being fed a bunch of horse hockey and misdirection! God bless.

born in Tampico, Ill. In 1922, Cardinal Archille Ratti was elected pope; he took the name Pius XI. In 1933, the 20th Amendment to the Constitution, the so-called “lame duck� amendment, was proclaimed in effect by Secretary of State Henry Stimson. In 1943, a Los Angeles jury acquitted actor Errol Flynn of three counts of statutory rape. In 1952, Britain’s King George VI died at Sandringham House in Norfolk, England; he was succeeded as monarch by his daughter, who became Queen Elizabeth II. In 1959, the United States successfully testfired for the first time a Titan intercontinental bal-

congregate on Sundays and whether a private company headed by a religious person qualifies for conscience exemptions. For government to decide such things violates the establishment and free exercise clauses of the First Amendment, which state “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...� and appears to put the state in the position of supreme authority and arbiter of what constitutes “legitimate� religious faith and practice. The Supreme Court will likely have to resolve its constitutionality. Permit me to offer the justices some assistance. The early church was not a building with a towering steeple. The early church met in homes. If one accepts New Testament teaching (and what higher authority on the church could there be?), the concept of the church being an organism that resides in each individual believer is clearly spelled out in several passages. Paul the Apostle writes in his letter to the Colossians (1:24) about the “body� of Jesus Christ, “which is the church.� By this, he means the “body of believers� in whom Christ dwells. Wherever that body is, whether an individual, or a group of believers, that’s the church. It was only later that this concept of church was turned into something with expensive

In 1992, 16 people were killed when a C-130 military transport plane crashed in Evansville, Ind. In 1993, tennis Hall-ofFamer and human rights advocate Arthur Ashe died in New York at age 49. In 1998, President Bill Clinton signed a bill changing the name of Washington National Airport to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

buildings, tax exemptions and denominations. The same theme can be found in Revelation where John is asked by Jesus to write letters to several churches. Those, too, were bodies of believers, not physical structures. In the Old Testament, God told Solomon that while He was too big to live in buildings, He would “dwell� in the Temple Solomon built for Him. Ultimately, though, He said He had other intentions: “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.� (Jeremiah 31:33) That was and remains for believers the authentic church, so when people say, “I am going to church,� it is an impossibility because they can’t go to themselves. The administration’s efforts to effectively gerrymander lines between what it considers legitimate religious practice and the secular is what the Founders hoped to avoid when they linked the establishment clause with the free exercise clause. That is why, among other reasons, government should not mandate birth control coverage as part of any national health care plan.

LaVeda Peitersen

LaVeda Ann Francis (Peitersen) was born to Lola Mary McLaughlin (Francis) and Charles Albert Lee Francis in Fort Morgan Colorado, on Aug. 14, 1936. LaVeda married James Peitersen in 1979, and they fulfilled their lifelong dream of traveling the United States, as professional exhibitors. LaVeda and Jim brought their jewelry business, LaBijoux, to Ruidoso, N.M., in November 1988. They opened their business in the Gazebo shopping center. Soon they added candy, dried fruits, trail mixes and chocolates, as a Mountain Man franchise. LaVeda and Jim moved to the Wild Snail in 1991, and the shoppe was named Misty Mountain Gourmet Shoppe. LaVeda created her own blend of Misty Mountain Christmas Coffee, for which she holds a U.S. patent and trademark, and for which she is remembered. LaVeda also holds a patent on Billy the Kid Coffee, Taste of Ruidoso Cof fee, Taste of Roswell Cof fee, Taste of Southwest Coffee, Billy the Kid Tea, and Wassail Tea. LaVeda and Jim bought

the Old Ice House in 1993 and operated Misty Mountain Gourmet Shoppe until in September 2007, when they sold their business. LaVeda and Jim maintain ownership of Misty Mountain Gourmet Shoppes, Inc. LaVeda was loved for her incredible ability to make her Shoppe into a place of warmth and hospitality. LaVeda enjoyed her customers and sampling her coffees, teas, soups, fudge and other goodies throughout the year. LaVeda brought Italian Cream Sodas into her shoppe, as well. Customers flocked in from many miles away to get their tasty treats. LaVeda went to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Jan. 20, 2013, in Seattle, Wash. LaVeda is survived by her husband Jim; daughter Dawna French, of Anacortes, Wash.; son Edward Lee Hahn, of Windsor, N.Y.; grandchildren, Angela Collins, Jeremiah French, Nathan French, Vanessa Buska, Edward J. Hahn, Ethan Hahn and Curtis Hahn; great-grandchildren, Amber French, Caleb French, Elijah French and Ev’angeline Hahn. LaVeda will be missed as a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother.

Another survivalist development in Idaho?

ST. MARIES, Idaho (AP) — A group of survivalists wants to build a giant walled fortress in the woods of the Idaho Panhandle, a medieval-style city where residents would be required to own weapons and stand ready to defend the compound if society collapses. The proposal is called the Citadel and has created a buzz among folks in this remote logging town 70 miles southeast of Spokane, Wash. The project would more than double the population of Benewah County, home to 9,000 souls. Locals have many questions, but organizers so far are pointing only to a website billing the Citadel as “A Community of Liberty.” “There is no leader,” Christian Kerodin, a convicted felon who is a promoter of the project, wrote in a brief email to The Associated Press. “There is a significant group of equals involved ... each bringing their own professional skills and life experiences to the group. “It is very much a ‘grassroots’ endeavor,”’ Kerodin wrote, declining to provide any additional details. Such communities are hardly new, especially in northern Idaho, which has long been a magnet for those looking to shun mainstream society because of its isolation, wide-open spaces and lack of racial diversity. For

three decades, the Aryan Nations operated a compound about an hour north of here before the group went bankrupt and the land was sold. Then came another community known as “Almost Heaven,” founded in 1994 by Green Beret-turned“patriot” movement leader Bo Gritz for those wanting a refuge from urban ills and Y2K concerns. That project crumbled when large numbers of buyers failed to move to the development, located 100 miles to the south. The number of so-called patriot groups has grown since President Barack Obama was first elected, and the renewed debate over gun control is further deepening resentment of the federal government among such factions, said Mark Potok, a spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC tracks such groups. Nevertheless, Potok noted, plans for these sorts of communities rarely come to fruition. “The people behind the Citadel are like 12-year-old boys talking about the tree house, or the secret underground city, they’re going to build some day,” he said. The website shows drawings of a stone fortress with room inside for up to 7,000 families. The compound would include houses,

schools, a hotel and a firearms factory and museum. The gun factory, the website said, would manufacture semi-automatic pistols and AR-15 rifles — which would be illegal if Congress reinstated the 1994 ban on assault weapons. Applicants must pay a $208 fee, and the website claims several hundred people already have applied to live in the Citadel. The site also warns that not all would be comfortable at the development: “Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles.” No construction has begun. Kerodin filed papers with the Idaho Secretary of State in November for a company called Citadel Land Development. III Arms LLC, which is the name of the proposed firearms company, also has purchased 20 acres of land in Benewah County, the county auditor said. The Citadel website said those 20 acres would serve as an administrative site from which to build the entire 2,000- to 3,000-acre compound. Kerodin, who declined requests for a telephone interview, was convicted in 2004 of federal extortion charges and illegal possession of a firearm in a case in which he posed as a counterterrorism expert and attempted to coerce shopping mall owners in the Washington, D.C., area to hire him to improve security, according to court documents. He served 30 months in federal prison. While the conviction makes it illegal for Kerodin to possess a firearm, residents of the Citadel would be required to own guns and to pledge to train together and use them if the compound were attacked. Residents would also be required to stock enough food and water to last a year.

Scottish fold Maru rests in a cardboard box in Japan, May 2011. After years of viral YouTube viewing and millions of shares, the cat stars of the Internet are coming into their own in lucrative and altruistic ways. Roly poly Maru, the megastar in Japan with millions of views for nearly 300 videos since 2007, has three books and a calendar, among other swag for sale.

Internet cat stars scratch the surface for fame NEW YORK (AP) — They frolic in empty boxes and stick their heads under faucet streams of water. They dance on tippy toes and fly through the air with Pop-Tarts. They play piano wearing little frocks and get tickled to distraction to the delight of millions on YouTube. I speak, of course, of the cat stars of the Internet, a place filled with felines and their wacky uploading humans since the dawn of bandwidth. Now, after years of viral viewing, they’re coming into their own in lucrative and altruistic ways. The first Internet Cat Video Film Festival drew a Woodstock-esque crowd of more than 10,000 — people, that is — to a Minneapolis art museum in August. Police closed a span of highway clogged with cars trying to get to the Walker Art Center for the free outdoor slate of 80 videos culled from 10,000 submissions that covered the simple, funny moment to polished animations and works made by trained filmmakers. “People were spilling out into the streets. It kind of took our breath away. You hit the people that are the cat lovers but you also get people who just like sharing something on the Internet, and it kind of reaches across age groups,” said the museum’s Scott Stulen, who worked on the festival and helped curate entries. Corporate kittydom is happy with the higher profile for the cat meme, which actually goes back to the ‘70s, when swapping VHS tapes was big and the word meme was barely known. It means, by the way, all the crazy, viral themes that spread

online faster than you can say nom, nom, nom (cat-vid speak for the sound of a cat eating.) In addition to the Walker’s free night in cat video heaven, Fresh Step litter sponsored Catdance, an evening of felines on screen that coincided with January’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. A fan-voted winner among five scripted finalists — 10 films were commissioned at the launch of the program — will earn $10,000 after online voting ends later this month. In November, Friskies gave a lifetime achievement statue to angsty existentialist Henri, le Chat Noir, at the brand’s own awards ceremony and donated 250,000 cans of cat food to shelters around the country. Henri, the troubled Tuxedo, won another statue in Minneapolis and will soon begin a collaboration of food-focused videos with Friskies. Oh, and Henri’s putting out his first book in April. Roly poly Maru, the megastar in Japan with millions of views for nearly 300 videos since 2007, has three books and a calendar, among other swag for sale. The squishy-faced, often blissed-out Scottish fold who loves boxes and bags was used by Uniqlo when the Japanese brand launched its San Francisco store in October. Maru chose boxes, called “Lucky Cubes,” stuffed with giveaways for human contest winners. Not to be outdone, Simon’s Cat, a funny feline in a series of linedrawn animated videos out of London, has a book and an online store, as does Henri, who lends his fame and some of his dol-

lars to cat charities. Even the funny faced Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tartar Sauce, coughs up some bucks to animal welfare groups, while captions for her still photos fly around the Internet and she sells Tshirts off her website. She put out some videos after her existence as a living, breathing and not digitally altered feline was questioned, according to her site. So why cats? Cats are fluf fy and unpredictable and usually kept behind closed doors, which lends them allure and appeal that other common pets — I’m talking to you, dogs! — don’t seem to have when it comes to vapid, funny or deranged video. At least that’s what cat fans think. “Cats are going to do what they want to do and that’s one of the reasons that we love them,” said David Kargas, a Fresh Step spokesman who worked on Catdance. These days in the cat video game, acts of charity are expected as much as laughs, said William Braden, the Seattle filmmaker who morphed a pampered family cat named Henry into the French-speaking Henri for a 2006 film school project. Cranking out Henri videos and managing the black-and-white long hair’s growing projects are now Braden’s full-time job. “On the one hand you’d be stupid not to do charity because fans are sensitive,” Braden said. “On the other hand, for the love of God, I make a living doing this... . How horrible would I be if I didn’t give a little bit of it away?”

Power an issue before big game NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Concerned the Superdome might not be able to handle the energy needed for its first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina, officials spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on upgrades to decayed utility lines, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The improvements apparently weren’t enough, however, to prevent an embarrassing and puzzling 34-minute power outage during the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Two days later, officials still had not pinpointed the cause of the outage. The Superdome’s management company, SMG, and the utility that supplies the stadium, Entergy New Orleans, announced Tuesday that they would hire outside experts to investigate. “We wanted to leave no stone unturned,” Entergy spokesman Chanel Lagarde told the AP. He said the two companies had not been able to reach a conclusion on the cause and wanted a third-party analysis. “We thought it was important to get another party looking at this to make

sure we were looking at everything that we need to examine,” Lagarde said. SMG Vice President Doug Thornton told a news conference at City Hall later Tuesday that the hiring of a third party does not signify a disagreement between SMG and Entergy. “It’s important for us to have total transparency and we have agreed among ourselves that we will exchange records,” Thornton said. “We were metering the power. They were doing the same on their side. We need to figure out what the root cause of this is and fix it.” Documents obtained Monday through a records request by The Associated Press show that Superdome officials worried months ago about losing power during the NFL championship. Tests on the electrical feeders that connect incoming power from utility lines to the stadium showed decay and “a chance of failure,” state officials warned in a memo dated Oct. 15. The documents, obtained by the AP through a records request, also show that Entergy expressed concern about the reliability of the service before the Super Bowl.

Attorney calls DA’s Newtown kids to be featured on E! Grammy preshow report on Chris Brown scurrilous PAT EATON-ROBB ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown’s attorney says a motion seeking to revoke the singer’s probation is shameful and he intends to seek sanctions against prosecutors because it is defamatory. Mark Geragos says the Los Angeles district attor ney’s of fice has ignored swor n statements by police in Virginia that Brown’s community service was supervised. He says he intends to seek sanctions against the prosecutor’s office at a hear-

ing Wednesday. Geragos called the motion “shameful and a disgrace.” Prosecutors filed a motion Tuesday claiming that there’s no credible evidence that the R&B singer performed six months of community labor in Virginia as ordered by a court after he pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009. Geragos says the motion essentially calls everyone in the Richmond Police Department a liar, and that should not be allowed.

A group of children from Newtown, Conn. who recently recorded a version of “Over the Rainbow” are preparing for a live appearance during the E! Network’s Grammy Awards preshow on Sunday. “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest will be flying a crew to Connecticut and plans to interview the children via satellite during the E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” preshow, said Tim Hayes, who co-produced the recording. The children also will be singing Carly Rae Jepson’s

hit song, “Call Me Maybe,” he said. The group of 21 kids, some of whom attend Sandy Hook Elementary School, recorded “Over the Rainbow” last month with singer -songwriter Ingrid Michaelson at the Fairfield, Conn., home of Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, two former members of the Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club rock bands. Sabrina Post, who runs a performing arts school in Newtown and directs the group, said the kids wanted to do something with their talent to honor their friends and neighbors who died in the Dec. 14 massacre at the

Winter. Some of them are also appearing on Katie Couric’s syndicated show this month, Hayes said. He said they have no plans to record anything else, or have the kids make any more public appearances.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas’ Rickey Scott walked to the sideline, gasping for air before lying down in an attempt to catch his breath. And that was less than 4 minutes into the Razorbacks’ shocking 8069 victory over No. 2 Florida on Tuesday night, giving second-year coach Mike Anderson the signature win had he been looking for in an electric Bud Walton Arena. BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as the Razorbacks (14-8, 5-4 Southeastern Conference) opened quickly and never let up, fueled by a raucous crowd of 13,816. It was an energy-filled arena that reminded Anderson of the Arkansas of old — when he was an assistant to former coach Nolan Richardson when the Razorbacks were among the nation’s best, winning the 1994 national championship. “If I gave two game balls tonight, one would certainly go to our fans,” Anderson said. “This place was lively tonight. It brought back a lot of memories for myself, especially sitting on that bench and seeing our fans so engaged in the game.” The win improves the Razorbacks to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps a 10-game winning streak for the Gators — who had ascended to the No. 2 spot in The AP Top 25 one day earlier. Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field. Michael Qualls and Marshawn Powell added 11 points each and 11 players scored for the Razorbacks in their first win over a top 10 team since early in 2008-09. Mike Rosario led Florida (18-3, 8-1) with 15 points, while Scottie Wilbekin added 14, Michael Frazier 11 and Kennny Boynton 10. The Gators hit just 4 of their first 15 shots, 7 of 24 in the first half, and never recovered in suffering their first loss since a 67-61 setback at Kansas State on Dec. 22. That loss was also the most points Florida had allowed in a game this season before Tuesday night. After trailing by as many as 23 points in the first half, the Gators cut the lead to 43-26 at halftime. The Razorbacks didn’t give Florida a chance to come up for air to open the second half, forcing turnovers on two straight possessions to open the second half and extending the lead 49-26 following a jumper by Qualls. Florida had one final run in it — responding with an 11-2 stretch to cut the deficit to 51-37 after an inside basket by Frazier. The Gators did close the lead to 11 points, but by then it was too late. against an Arkansas team in desperate need of a signature win, one that hasn’t reached the NCAA tournament since 2008.

ARTESIA — Comebacks are fun for everyone, excluding the team being come back on and its supporters of course. As most of America found out on Sunday during the Super Bowl, though, not all comebacks are completed. That was the case for Goddard on Tuesday in its District 4-4A opener against Artesia. The Rockets trailed by 18 with 2:28 left in the third, clawed back to within three in the fourth quarter, but fell short in their comeback attempt as Artesia held on for a 71-62 win. Artesia led 38-29 entering the second half and the lead only grew as the Bulldogs opened up a 51-33 lead after a jumper from Weston Leonard. Goddard (11-12 overall, 0-1 district) showed it still had fight left, however, as field goals from Josh

Wagner, Cody French and Ricky Roybal brought the Rockets to within 51-39 at the start of the final quarter. Still trailing by 11 with less than five minutes remaining, the Rockets made their move after a jumper from Austin Rader made it 57-48. Two possessions later, Roybal drilled a triple to close the gap to eight. After the teams traded baskets, Goddard inched closer with a jumper from Roybal and, after a block on the other end from Mark McCool, the Rockets made it 61-57 with a fall-away jumper from Wagner. Artesia stemmed the tide momentarily when Denzyl Garcia hit a pair from the charity stripe to push the Bulldog lead back to six, but Wagner drained a trey on the ensuing Rocket possession to make it a one-score game.

told fans the team had fulfilled a promise to go to New Orleans and win. “The city of Baltimore — I love you for ever and ever and ever and ever,” Lewis told fans in front of City Hall. The players were about an hour late arriving, but fans waited to see them pile into military vehicles and set off on their drive to the stadium. The city shot off purple and white confetti as the parade started and the Queen song “We Are the Champions” played over a loudspeaker. Quarterback Joe Flacco and several other players rode in their own camouflage-colored military vehicles, while others stood on a float decorated like a football field with a yellow goal post. Lewis had a position of honor in a military vehicle that brought up the end of the procession. He touched his hand to his heart and gave fans a double thumbs-

up as he started on the parade route. Fans followed behind, surrounding the back of the vehicle. Fans wore every article of purple clothing imaginable. In addition to team jerseys, people were dressed in purple hats and scarves, purple Mardi Gras beads, purple wigs. One man wore a Ravens flag as a cape, and many women came wearing purple lipstick and eye shadow. Lewis Neal, 59, who was born and raised in Baltimore, was decked out in a purple tie and vest to purple pants and shoes. He said he went to the parade after the team won its first Super Bowl championship in 2001. This time was smaller, he said, but still special. “My heart goes out for them,” said Lewis, who said he had tears in his eyes Sunday when the team

Beautiful Ballet Think of all the different ways there are to tell a story. We can sing a song, such as “Itsy Bitsy Spider.� An author can relate a tale in a book. Actors can tell a story through a movie or play. This week, The Mini Page leaps into the world of ballet. When it first began, ballet, like many other types of dance, was another way to tell a story.

The French King Louis XIV loved dance. In the mid-1600s, he started a dance academy in Paris and often danced in its ballets.

Ballerinas In the 1700s and 1800s, ballerinas began to dance on pointe — up on their toes in special shoes called pointe shoes. Famous ballerinas became known for their special talents Pointe shoes — jumps, turns or beautiful arms.

Ballet’s beginnings The first ballet was believed to have taken place in 1581 — more than 400 years ago! At that time, kings and queens kept huge courts of people to serve and entertain them. Court entertainers wore fancy costumes and performed speaking and singing roles, along with dancing and music. The first ballet, the Ballet Comique de la Reine, was performed in Paris during a three-day wedding celebration at the court of Catherine de’ Medici, the wife of King Henry II of France. The story it told was of the Greek goddess Circe. The ballet lasted more than five hours.

Skylar Diggins wants to do more. Not that she hasn’t done a ton already. The ambitious University of Notre Dame senior is a dazzling, three-time All-American point guard who does it all — scores, runs the offense and plays bandit-like defense. Diggins, a hometown favorite, averaged 16.8 points, dished out 222 assists and made 102 steals last season. She can get past defenses on speedy drives to the basket or pop in 3-point shots. Diggins also shines in the classroom, making the Big East All-Academic team all three years while majoring in manager entrepreneurship. “Sky,� her nickname, always aims high. And this season she wants to lead the Irish to another lofty record.

Kids might think ballet is boring, but a production such as this one by the Colorado Ballet of “Where the Wild Things Are,� with the beasts dancing on the stage, captures the imagination of even young children.

All the following jokes have something in common. Can you guess the common theme or category?

First position: Heels touching, toes turned out to the side. Arms forward, hands touching, elbows open.

Bill: What is a dancer’s most important goal? Barbara: To get right to the pointe!

Second position: Feet shoulder-width apart, turned out. Arms open, hands down, forming a smooth curve.

Third position: Heel of one foot in front of middle of other foot. One arm curved above you, the other out to the side. Fourth position: One foot crossed in front of the other. Both feet turned out. One arm out in a gentle curve in front of you; the other arm curving above your head. Fifth position: Heel of front foot against toe of back foot. Both feet turned out. Both arms curve over your head. Fingers and shoulders relaxed. Next week, The Mini Page is about the Westminster Dog Show.

DEAR TEEN: Have a frank, non-confrontational talk with your boyfriend and ask him what has changed. It may be that the novelty wore off. He may have a low sex drive, or he may be interested in women only as friends. But you will never know until you ask him. When you do, let him know that whatever his answer is, you care about him and you hope he feels the same way about you. #####


DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for about a year. He was a virgin when we met. Three months into the relationship we had sex. I am 18 and he is 21. We used to have sex often, but now he is completely uninterested in anything sexual. I feel like he isn’t attracted to me anymore, although I haven’t changed much since we started dating. Other than sex, we have a great relationship. We haven’t had a single fight, but it hurts my feelings that he doesn’t want to have sex with me anymore. What’s the solution to our problem? TEEN IN ST. GEORGE, UTAH

DEAR ABBY: My 31-year-old daughter, “Layla,” is beautiful, accomplished and earns a good living. She has a lot of friends and always has a boyfriend. She has had both long-term and short-term relationships. Layla isn’t married and hopes to meet the right person. I’m very anxious about it, but this is her life and her choice. People constantly ask, “How’s your daughter? Is she seeing anyone?” And when I meet someone for the first time who asks about my children, the second question they ask is, “Is she married?” (They don’t ask that about my son.) This is painful for me. What

The Wizard of Id


should I say in response to this omnipresent question? LAYLA’S MOM DEAR MOM: All you have to do is smile and say: “My daughter is single, loves her job and is quite successful. Now tell me about YOUR children.” #####

DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced for eight years. My daughter is learning how to drive. In her mother’s car, while under her mother’s supervision, she hit their garage door. My ex believes I should pay half the cost of the new garage door. Also, she did a total upgrade, turning the entrance to the garage into one large door instead of two. I say I shouldn’t have to pay. She says if it was someone else’s house we would pay. I agree, but it is not, and my ex-wife was in the car — not me. WHO PAYS? IN CALIFORNIA DEAR WHO PAYS?: She pays. It should not be your responsibility to foot half the bill for an upgrade to your ex’s garage door,



CAFROT GLITHF A: Yesterday’s



I’m not too tall or too short. I’m not overweight or too thin. I never receive comments about my appearance that causes me to be sensitive. My husband doesn’t drink, abuse me or stray. I have had no problems through the years with family members, neighbors or co-workers. My grown children are thoughtful, considerate and loving. Even my inlaws love me. So tell me, did you ever receive a letter such as this? JOY IN SAN DIEGO


Not in recent history. And it’s probably because people regard my column as a place to dump their troubles rather than share their many blessings, as you have done today.

Today’s Crossword Puzzle

After pouring your gravy into the separator, watch as the fat rises to the top and the gravy goes to the bottom. You will be able to see the line separating the two once all the liquid settles. The lid with the holes is the strainer portion of the separator. Once the gravy has settled, remove the perforated lid and start pouring the gravy. The cup is designed to allow you to pour the gravy out, but stop short of pouring when you reach the fat layer. Separators work because fat is less dense and always rises up, whatever liquid it is. Fat separators are designed to separate fat from the gravy/liquid it is in, therefore enabling you to just pour off the desired gravy. Heloise

Dear Heloise: I have a simple question for you: What is whole grain? A Reader, via email Well, according to the Whole Grains Council, a whole grain can be any type of grain (corn, rice, wheat, oat, barley, etc.). What actually makes the grain “whole” is keeping 100 percent of the original grain seed/kernel as it is found in nature. These grains can be made into flour or eaten “whole, cracked, split or ground” while still being considered “whole” because it has all its parts contained within the husk (the bran, germ and endosperm). Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: My husband recently stopped at a fast-food restaurant on the way home from work. He used the drivethru instead of going inside to order. When he got home, we discovered that several items were missing that had been paid for. Of course he went back to the restaurant, but this wasted gas and time. Since this has happened numerous times, my hint is to always park the car and place your order inside. You can watch the order as it is placed in the bags, or at the very least check it before leaving. Additionally, you will not hold up the drive-thru lane as you check the bags. It takes more effort, but especially if ordering for several people, it ensures that you get home with everything you wanted, and no one is left disappointed. Lydia P. in Ohio Dear Heloise: I am an avid recipe collector. I have hundreds of recipes. I needed a way to sort them and dispose of the unused ones. I came up with a solution. In 2012, every time I clipped a new recipe, I made a mark with a pink highlighter on the corner of the recipe card. In 2013, I plan to use a green highlighter. If I have not tried a new recipe in a year, then it is time to dispose of it. The color-coding allows me to see how old the recipe is and clean out old ones. Ann M. in San Antonio

Dell to go private in $24.4B deal led by founder SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Slumping personal computer maker Dell is bowing out of the stock market in a $24.4 billion buyout that represents the largest deal of its kind since the Great Recession dried up the financing for such risky maneuvers. The complex agreement announced Tuesday will allow Dell Inc.’s management, including eponymous founder Michael Dell, to attempt a company turnaround away from the glare and financial pressures of Wall Street. Dell stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company on its own. That’s 25 percent more than the stock’s price of $10.88 before word of the buyout talks trickled out three weeks ago. But it’s a steep markdown from the shares’ price of $24 six years ago when Michael Dell returned for a second goround as CEO. Dell shares rose 14 cents to $13.41 in after noon trading, indicating that investors don’t believe a better offer is likely. The chances of a successful counter offer look slim, given the forces lined up behind the current deal. Michael Dell, the company’s largest shareholder, is throwing in his 14 percent

stake and an undisclosed sliver of $16 billion fortune to help finance the sale to a group led by the investment firm Silver Lake. “We recognize that (transformation) will still take more time, investment and patience, and I believe our efforts will be better supported by partnering with Silver Lake in our shared vision,” Michael Dell said in a statement. Software maker Microsoft, which counts Dell among its biggest customers, is backing the deal by lending $2 billion to the buyers. The remaining money to pay for the acquisition is being borrowed through loans arranged by several banks, saddling Dell with an estimated $15 billion in debt that could raise doubts about its financial stability among its riskaverse corporate customers. The sale is structured as a leveraged buyout, which requires the acquired company to repay the debt taken on to finance the deal. Dell’s sale is the second highest-priced leveraged buyout of a technology company, trailing the $27 billion paid for First Data Corp. in 2007. The deal is the largest leveraged buyout of any type since November 2007 when Alltel Corp. sold for $25 billion to TPG

Stocks rebound on home prices Feds: 18 charged in $200M

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market bounced back Tuesday following a surge in U.S. home prices and signs of strength in Europe’s economy. Strong earnings reports also helped power the gains. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 123 points to 14,003 as of 2:13 p.m. EST, erasing most of its loss from Monday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 gained 17 points to 1,513. The Nasdaq composite was up 41 points to 3,171. The rise follows two days of whiplash. On Monday, the Dow dropped 129 points, its worst sell-off of the year so far. That came after the Dow gained 149 points Friday, closing above 14,000 for the first time since 2007. Tuesday’s advance was driven by new data showing that U.S. home prices rose in December at the fastest pace in more than six years. CoreLogic, a real estate data provider, reported that home prices rose 8.3 percent. In Europe, a measure of manufacturing and service businesses rose to a 10-month high January. Estee Lauder rose $3.61 to $64.66 after reporting earnings that beat analysts’ expectations. Profits surged 13 percent at the beauty products company as sales in the U.S. and emerging markets rose.

ing better results than it had expected.

Stocks have gotten off to a strong start this year. The Dow advanced 5.8 percent in January, its best start to the year since 1994, according to data compiled to S&P Dow Jones indices. The S&P 500 rose 5 percent in the month.

Lance Roberts, chief economist at Streettalk Advisors in Houston, Texas, said that’s related more to the Federal Reserve’s commitment to keep money cheap than to companies’ performance. If earnings are beating estimates, he said, it’s largely because expectations were so low. “If you lower the hurdles enough, companies can get over them,” Roberts said.

The fact that individual investors are starting to return to stocks, as they have in recent weeks, is another sign that the market is due for a correction, Roberts and other analysts have said.

McGraw-Hill Cos., parent of the Standard & Poor’s ratings agency, fell $3.82 to $46.50, after the federal government sued S&P. The government said that S&P knowingly misled investors about the quality of the mortgage-backed securities it was rating in the run up to the financial crisis that caused the Great Recession. The stock dropped 14 percent on Monday after early reports about the lawsuit leaked out.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, climbed six basis points to 2.02 percent.

global credit card fraud

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Eighteen people were charged in what may be one of the nation’s largest credit card fraud rings, a sprawling international scam that duped credit-rating agencies and used thousands of fake identities to steal at least $200 million, federal authorities said Tuesday. The elaborate scheme involved improving fake cardholders’ credit scores, allowing the scammers to borrow more money that they never repaid, investigators said. “In many respects the accused availed themselves of a virtual cafeteria of sophisticated frauds and schemes, whose main menu items were greed and deceit,” said David Velazquez, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Newark field office. Paul Fishman, the U.S. attorney in Newark, described an intricate Jersey City-based con that began in 2007, operated in

at least 28 states and wired money to Pakistan, India, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Romania, China and Japan. The group used at least 7,000 fake identities to obtain more than 25,000 credit cards, Fishman said. He said $200 million in documented losses could rise. Participants set up more 1,800 mailing than addresses, creating fake utility bills and other documents to provide credit card companies with what appeared to be legitimate addresses. Once participants obtained the cards, they started making small charges and paying off the cards to raise their credit limits. They then sent fake reports to credit-rating agencies, making it appear that cardholders had paid off debts, setting the stage for sterling credit ratings and high credit limits. Fishman said once the

credit limits were raised, members would take out a loan or max out the credit card and not repay the debts. The group also created at least 80 sham businesses that accepted credit card payments, Fishman said. The group would run the fraudulently obtained credit through the cards machines, keeping the money. The scheme funded a lavish lifestyle for the accused, including spa treatments, electronics and millions of dollars of gold, Fishman said. In one raid, authorities found $68,000 stashed in an oven. Three jewelry stores in Jersey City were closed Tuesday and their inventory seized, Fishman said. Thirteen defendants were arrested Tuesday. Four were arrested previously; of them three have pleaded guilty. Others have not yet been charged and the investigation was ongoing, Fishman said.

No. 3 Wolverines rebound with OT win

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. kept Michigan in the game when the Wolverines wer en’t playing a whole lot of defense. Then he ended it by smothering Ohio State’s final chance of overtime. Har daway br ought his team back with a relentless streak of 3point shooting, and his blocked sh o t g ave N o . 3 M i c h i g an an exhilarating 76-74 victory over No. 10 Ohio State on Tuesday night. Aaron Craft’s last two shots we r e b l oc ke d — o ne b y T r ey Burke, and the next by Hardaway right under the basket. “I saw the ball in my face, so I just tried to wrap it up,” Hardaway said. “Probably got his arm or something like that, but like I said, it’s up to the refs to call that call, and they let it go.” Craft’s side of the story? Fairly similar, actually. “There was a bit of contact,” he said. “But they didn’t call it, so I guess it wasn’t a foul.” After scoring at will most of the second half, Ohio State (17-5, 7-3 Big Ten) managed only two points in overtime. H a r d aw a y fi n ish e d w it h 2 3 points, including five straight 3p o in t er s i n t he s e c o n d h a l f. Burke missed a 3-pointer at the end of regulation that would have won it for Michigan — the Wolverines’ only miss in nine secondhalf attempts from beyond the arc. Burke’s 3 at the start of overtime made it 75-72, and then neither team scored until Craft’s driving layup with just under a minute to play.

At 138, Goddard’s Marcus Trujillo claimed a 6-1 win over Anthony Perales. At 145, Goddard’s Chris Cordero scratched out a 15-10 win over Eddie Sills. At 152, Goddard’s Raymond Anaya blanked Adam Mysza 40. At 170, Goddard’s Fabian Soto pinned Chris Snyder with just seven seconds left in the final period for the

Rockets’ final win of the night. They also had forfeit wins by Chris Archibeque (113) and Andres Villa (160). Roswell swept the final four weight classes. Jesus Alvarado won 8-0 at 182 over T ony Salvarrey, Jarrett Vaz won by pinfall with 36 seconds left in the first period over Antonio Flores, Anthony Fresquez beat Austin Burrell by pinfall 37 seconds into the second period at 220 and Mark Juarez beat Eathyn Griffin 5-1

possession, Rader had an open look at a 3 from the left corner, but his shot was long and rebounded by Artesia. After fouling Montoya, he made both free throws and Artesia scored eight of the final 10 points

Craft stole the ball from Burke, but the Michigan point guar d hustled back to prevent an easy b as k et . T h e b a ll we nt ou t o f bounds to Ohio State. With the shot clock off, Craft d r o v e p a st B ur ke, b u t B u r ke recovered to block Craft’s shot fr om behind at the free thr ow l i ne. G le n n R ob in son II I wa s fouled and made one of two free throws for Michigan (21-2, 8-2) with 7.6 seconds left. D ow n b y t wo p oi nt s , C r aft rushed the ball into the frontcourt, tried to drive past Burke, then found Hardaway in his way. “I thought Trey fouled him, and then I thought the whistle was going to blow, and then I just went for the ball,” Hardaway said. De s ha un T h o ma s s cor ed 17 points for the Buckeyes. Michigan and Ohio State were meeting for the first time with both teams ranked in the top 10. The Buckeyes handed the Wolverines their first loss of the season last month. Michigan rebounded a nd wa s r an k e d N o. 1 i n t h e country before a loss Saturday night at Indiana, which moved to No. 1. With a sold-out, early arriving crowd cheering them on Tuesday, the Wolverines went on a 12-0 run in the first half. They led 188 after Burke scored off a nifty hesitation dribble. “With that crowd right now, it was going to be tough to beat us today, even though we didn’t play our best,” said Michigan coach John Beilein, who was celebrating his 60th birthday. “With that crowd and this atmosphere, it wa s ex c i ti n g t o b e t h e coac h today.”

The Buckeyes settled in, eventually taking a 29-28 lead when C r aft d r ov e for a l ayu p. Oh io State was ahead 31-30 at halftime. The Buckeyes led 48-40 after a 3-pointer by Lenzelle Smith Jr., but Hardaway and the Wolverines r a lli ed . H ar daw ay’ s fou r t h 3 pointer of the half put the Wolverines up 55-54. Amid all that, the Buckeyes stayed patient on offense. Smith’s three-point play inside put Ohio State back ahead, and a 3-pointer by LaQuinton Ross made it 6055. O hio S t at e led 62 -6 0 aft er another 3-pointer by Hardaway, and the Wolverines were eventually able to stop the Buckeyes for a couple of possessions. Burke’s breakaway layup followed by a 3pointer from Nik Stauskas put Michigan back ahead 65-64. With tension mounting, both teams took advantage of fortunate bounces. After Hardaway’s shot was blocked, the Wolverines came up with the loose ball and immediately got it to Burke for a 3 that put them up 68-65. At the other end, Nik Stauskas grabbed a defensive rebound, but his poor pass bounced right to Thomas, who caught it in rhythm in front of the Ohio State bench and sank a 3 to tie it. Smith tied it at 72 in the final minute with a shot from the left corner — his foot was on the 3point line — and Ohio State held on to force overtime.

at heavyweight. Roswell coach David Fredericks said his team will use the loss to its rival as motivation. “I’ve always believed in the fact that if there’s a time to lose, it’s right before district because there’s nothing that’s going to fire you up more than the anger and motivation you can gain from a loss,” he said. “We’re going to go into district with the mentality that we know what it’s going to take. Hopefully the practices the next few weeks are fueled by this loss.”

to close out the win. Rocket coach Kevin Jones said that the early hole did in his team, but he was proud of how they battled. “I just thought that we were more aggressive (during our comeback),” he said. “We didn’t match their energy at the start of the game. We missed some easy shots, but the whole thing was they were winning the game of easy baskets,

In Goddard’s 73-0 win over Ruidoso, the Rockets claimed eight forfeit victories, three pinfall victories and two decision victories to complete a shutout of the Warriors. T rujillo, Anaya and Cordero had wins by pinfall, and Wilson (7-1) and Soto (12-5) won by decisions. In Roswell’s 60-21 win over Ruidoso, the Coyotes got pinfall victories from Perales at 138 and Mysza at 152 and eight forfeit victories to handily beat the Warriors.

and I think what was the difference in the game. “But they could have blown us out. We hung around and I was proud.” Sweet led Goddard with 14 points, while Wagner chipped in with 11. Montoya paced Artesia with 26 points.

beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31. Nancy Monseaux, 63, a Baltimore resident for nearly four decades, cheered the team on Pratt Street, where fans lined the sidewalk five or more people deep in some places. Monseaux, who held a sign that said “Doubt the Ravens nevermore,” said she wanted to come to show her support for the team. “These boys earned it,” she said of the victory, cheering as members of the team passed. Some fans along the parade route said they also planned to go to the team’s M&T Bank Stadium. But the stadium, which usually seats 71,000, reached capacity around 12:30 p.m., a police spokesman said, and late-arriving fans were turned away. When the team did arrive, they treated fans to a thank-you celebration that lasted just over a half an hour. Lewis emerged from a tunnel onto the field, handed off the Lombardi trophy and did his signature dance, “The Squirrel.” He thanked fans for their love of the team and said he wanted to win the Super Bowl to repay Baltimore for everything it’s done for him. “There is no place on this earth that’s better than Baltimore,” he told the crowd. AP Photo Flacco, the Super Bowl’s most valuable player, also addressed fans. Fans line the streets of Baltimore on Tuesday as members of the “Baltimore, we did it. Super Bowl Ravens ride through in a parade celebrating the team’s win over the champs, baby,” he said. San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
