PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — New Englanders began the back-breaking job of digging out from as much as 3 feet of wet, heavy snow Saturday and emergency crews used snowmobiles to reach shivering motorists stranded overnight on New York’s Long Island after a howling storm swept through the northeast. About 650,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity, and some could be cold and dark for days. Many roads across the New York-to-Boston corridor of 25 million people were impassable. Cars were entombed by drifts. And some homeowners woke up in the morning to find the snow packed so high they couldn’t get their doors open. “It’s like lifting cement. They say it’s 2 feet, but I think it’s more like 3 feet,”

said Michael Levesque, who was shoveling snow in Quincy, Mass., as part of a work crew for a landscaping company. In Providence, where the drifts were 5 feet high and telephone lines encrusted with ice and snow drooped under the weight, Jason Harrison labored for nearly three hours to clear his blocked driveway and front walk and still had more work to do. His snowblower, he said, “has already paid for itself.” At least four deaths in the U.S. were blamed on the overnight snowstorm, including an 11-year-old boy in Boston who was overcome by carbon monoxide as he sat in a running car to keep warm while his father shoveled Saturday morning.

Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee cautioned that while the snow had stopped, the danger hadn’t passed: “People need to take this storm seriously, even after it’s over. If you have any kind of heart condition, be careful with the shoveling.” Blowing with hurricaneforce winds of more than 80 mph in places, the storm hit hard along the heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor between New York City and Maine. Milford., Conn., got 38 inches of snow, and Portland, Maine, recorded 31.9, shattering a 1979 record. Several communities in New York and across New England got more than 2 feet. Still, the storm was not as bad as some of the forecasts led many to fear, and not as dire as the Blizzard of ’78, used by longtime New Englanders as the benchmark by which all other winter storms are measured. By midday Saturday, the National Weather Service reported preliminary snowfall totals of 24.9 inches in Boston, or fifth on the city’s all-time list. Bradley Airport near Hartford, Conn., got 22 inches, for the No. 2 spot in the record books there. In New York, where Central Park recorded 11 inches, not even enough to make the Top 10 list, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the city


“dodged a bullet” and its streets were “in great shape.” The three major airports — LaGuardia, Kennedy and Newark, N.J. — were up and running by late morning after shutting down the evening before. Most of the power outages were in Massachusetts, where more than 400,000 homes and businesses were left in the dark. In Rhode Island, around 178,000 customers lost power, or about one-third of the state. Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island imposed travel bans until 4 p.m. to keep cars off the road and let plows do their work, and the National Guard helped clear highways in Connecticut, where more than 240 car accidents were reported. The Guardsmen rescued about 90 motorists, including a few who had hypothermia and were taken to hospitals. On Long Island, which got more than 2 1/2 feet of snow, hundreds of drivers spent a cold and scary night stuck on the highways. Even snowplows got bogged down or were blocked by stuck cars, so emergency workers used snowmobiles to try to reach motorists, many of whom were still waiting to be rescued hours after the snow had stopped. One of those who was rescued, Priscilla Arena, prayed as she waited, took out a sheet of loose-leaf paper and wrote what she thought

specifics to back up some of the Inauguration Day’s lofty liberal rhetoric. The president previewed the address during a meeting Thursday with House Democrats and said he would speak “about making sure that we’re focused on job creation here in the United States of America.” Obama said he would try to accomplish that by calling for improvements in education, boosting clean energy production, and reducing the deficit in ways that don’t burden the middle class, the poor or the elderly. While those priorities may be cheered by some Democrats, they’re certain to be met with skepticism or outright opposition from many congressional Republicans, especially in the GOP-controlled House. The parties are at odds over ways to reduce the deficit. Republicans favor spending cuts; Obama prefers a combination of spending cuts and increasing tax revenue. The president said he would

address taxes and looming across-the-board budget cuts, known as the sequester, in the speech. The White House and Congress have pushed back the automatic cuts once, and Obama wants to do it again in order to create an opening for a larger deficit reduction deal. “I am prepared, eager and anxious to do a big deal, a big package that ends this governance by crisis where every two weeks or every two months or every six months we are threatening this hard-won recovery,” he said last week. The economy has rebounded significantly from the depths of the recession and has taken a back seat for Obama since he won re-election in November. He’s instead focused on campaigns to overhaul the nation’s patchwork immigration laws and enact stricter gun control measures following the massacre of 20 schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., in December. The president also raised expectations for action this year on climate change after devoting a significant amount of time to the issue in his address at the inauguration.

Never say you hate someone you love.” Richard Ebbrecht, a chiropractor, left his office in Brooklyn at 3 p.m. on Friday and headed for home in Middle Island, N.Y., but got stuck six or seven times on the Long Island Expressway and other roads. “There was a bunch of us Long Islanders. We were all helping each other, shoveling, pushing,” he said. He finally gave up and settled in for the night in his car just two miles from his destination. At 8 a.m., when it was light out, he walked home. “I could run my car and keep the heat on and listen to the radio a little bit,” he said. “It was very icy under my car. That’s why my car is still there.” Across much of New England, streets were empty of cars and dotted instead with children who had never seen so much snow and were jumping into snowbanks and making forts. Snow was waist-high in the mostly empty streets of Boston. Plows made some thoroughfares passable but piled even more snow on cars parked on the city’s narrow streets. Boston’s Logan Airport was not expected to resume operations until late Saturday night. Around the New York met-

economic growth slowed last quarter and consumer confidence is falling, so the economy could upend Obama’s plans to pursue a broader domestic agenda in his final four years in office. Tony Fratto, who worked in the White House during President George W. Bush’s second term, said Obama has to show the public that he’s still focused on the economy before he can get their full support for his other proposals. “We’re not in a position where he can blame anybody else for the economy now,” Fratto said, “Now it’s his economy.” Obama is expected to use his address to press lawmakers to back his immigration overhaul, which includes a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants, and his gun control proposals, including universal background checks and a ban on assault weapons. Voting rights groups expect the president to call for changes that would make it easier for people to vote. “I think it’s important to be able to do more than one thing at a time,” said David Axelrod, who served as senior adviser in the White House and Obama’s

motivational speaker Dr. Gary Schwantz and advocate Tim Harris, who was bor n with Down Syndrome. Attendees included members of school districts and communities throughout southeastern New Mexico, as well as Midland, Texas. “We’re just really pleased with the tur nout,” said

re-election campaign. “But the economy is an ongoing and significant challenge that you have to keep working on.” While the centerpiece of Obama’s address is expected to be his domestic agenda, the president sees a chance to outline the next steps in bringing the protracted war in Afghanistan to an end. He’s facing two pressing decisions: the size and scope of the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan after the war formally ends late next year, and the next phase of the troop drawdown this year. More than 60,000 U.S. troops are in Afghanistan. The president could update the public on cuts to the number of U.S. nuclear weapons, a priority for his administration. Vice President Joe Biden recently told a security conference in Germany that Obama probably would use the State of the Union to discuss “advancing a comprehensive nuclear agenda to strengthen the nonproliferation regime, reduce global stockpiles and secure nuclear materials.” White House allies are nudging Obama’s team to move forward on a plan to expand education for children before they

Obama carried 55 percent of female voters, many of whom are looking to the White House for their reward. While groups such as Latinos and gays have seen policy initiatives since Election Day, women’s groups have not received the same kinds of rollouts. Florida Sen.

NM group to honor noted ‘forgotten’ Latino scholar

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A group of retired educators are working to honor a MexicanAmerican scholar who is celebrated across the country but is virtually unknown in New Mexico, where he was born. An ad hoc committee is pushing a series of projects aimed at honoring the lateGeorge I. Sanchez, a scholar credited with helping bring attention to the plight of poor Mexican-Americans in the 1930s. Those projects include naming a street and building after Sanchez, said Luisa Duran, a retired University of New Mexico bilingual education professor. In addition, New Mexico


state lawmakers are scheduled Tuesday to read a memorial about the pioneer scholar’s contributions to Latino education. For the Sanchez family, it’s a stunning reversal of his legacy in a state where lawmakers once denounced him and forced him to leave because of his then-radical views on desegregation, said granddaughter Cindy Kennedy, 49, a Santa Fe teacher. “I think it’s fantastic,” Kennedy said. “It’s about time he’s being honored here nearMost holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone. Make use I implore you, of that particular privilege given to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly – (Here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

The Roswell Police Department’s Commander Levi Moody will discuss conceal carry classes, firearm safety and the police perspective.

$5,000. Those with conceal-carry permits, though, are exempt and may carry a concealed weapon because, according to Adam: “The government holds people with the conceal carry permit to a higher standard.” Another issue to be addressed is guns in the home. “Someone said that Obama has done more to boost gun sales than anyone else. Many people want to get a gun for protection. We want to ask the question is it really safe?” said Bobby. He noted that more people with guns in their homes die as a result of crimes than those who do not own guns simply because they don’t know how to use them. Adam said they will present people with other alternatives for

example the fact that New Mexico is an open-carry state. Some people have interpreted this to mean that as long as the gun is exposed, for example on a belt holster, they are allowed to go anywhere. “There are limitations,” Adam said. Some may be aware that opencarry does not permit people to take a firearm into any establishment that sells liquor, such as liquor stores. However, this prohibition includes not only liquor stores and the local watering holes, but also grocery stores and convenience stores, anywhere that alcohol may be sold. “It’s a fourth degree felony if you do,” he said. Fourth-degree felonies can carry a sentence up 18 months in prison and fines of up to

carry laws. While the speakers will be willing to field questions and discuss upcoming regulations, this not the intent of the meeting. “We have 23 executive orders before congress now, but there has been no vote. We can not predict what the final regulations will be.” Adam Villegas of NMFTA is one of the featured speakers. His firm conducts conceal-carry and gun training classes in Roswell. “We don’t plan to be talking about the potential regulations about assault weapons,” he said. “People are saying: ‘Don’t take my guns away.’ Everyone seems afraid of something that hasn’t happened yet.” Adam hopes to dispel some of the myths about New Mexico’s current gun laws. He cited as an

In an effort to deter corrupt government officials, Sen. Mark Moores, R-Albuquerque, recently introduced a piece of legislation that would “throw them out of office immediately upon a felony conviction and turn over their campaign funds to the state.” Under Senate Bill 238, “if a person who holds a public office in this state is convicted of a felony, the person shall be deemed to have resigned from the public office immediately upon conviction…All funds belonging to the person's campaign committee or committees…shall be deposited into the general fund.” The bill would also extend the removal from public office to cabinet secretaries and to anyone appointed to a public board or commission. “Under my bill, there will be no question about what to do with the seat of an elected public official, cabinet secretary or an appointee who has been convicted of a felony while in office,” Moores said in a release. State Attorney General Gary K. King has expressed his support of the legislation and said Moores’ bill “is consistent with other public corruption initiatives I have supported and pursued…I believe it is a good addition to current law.” Moores said the Secretary of State’s office stated the bill “supports the public policy regarding the forfeiture of campaign funds upon a felony conviction.”

New Mexico likes its collection of permanent funds

SANTA FE — New Mexico is very fortunate to have two large permanent funds socked away for a rainy day. In the eastern states most land is privately held. By the time the Western states were settled, the government was keeping large chunks for federal, state, county and municipal purposes. Much is desert land but much is good for grazing or has oil and minerals under it.The revenue from those lands goes into what is commonly called the State Land Grant Permanent Fund. Each entity gets its share. Public schools get the revenue from sections 2 and 32 of each 36-acre township. Part of that money is then transferred to the appropriation amounts for the various governmental units. These funds were helpful in getting schools started as the School for the Visually Handicapped and the Deaf Shool. Back in the early 1970s, New Mexico was experiencing a very




healthy economic boom. Severance taxes from oil and gas companies were flowing in at record rates. The mines near towns such as Santa Rita, Carlsbad and Questa also were doing well. So the Legislature and Gov. Bruce King created a second permanent fund, which they named the Severance Tax Permanent Fund. Previously severance taxes were used to finance the budget. That fund began growing to a size approaching the original Land Grant Permanent Fund. As the economy started leveling off in the early 1980s, legislators decided they would begin diverting some of the yearly severance

Roswell Daily Record

tax receipts into a fund to improve roads, bridges, buildings and other capital needs. The fund still grew from part of the yearly income plus interest on the fund. The money from this severance tax revenue stream, combined with money from state budget surpluses (which we haven’t had much of recently) is then used for what many of us lovingly call pork. Gov. Susana Martinez hasn’t been very willing to spend much pork money since the beginning of her term because of the state’s poor financial condition. It appears some state surplus money may be available this year, if revenue projections are correct, strong pressure is expected to be exerted on her to fund projects around the state, partly because it means jobs, especially in the construction industry which has been hit hard since early 1988. New Mexico apparently likes permanent funds. We created a

third permanent fund with the tobacco settlement money we received several years ago. It is used for ongoing cancer research. New Mexico State University also recently created what it calls a water per manent fund for future use in areas with critical water shortage. The only problem with permanent funds is how permanent are they? To some, they are similar to an endowment, from which only the interest is drawn. To others, they are a savings account for use only when there is a critical need. The only way to settle the dichotomy is to specifically spell out the terms in the state constitution. The state Land Grant Permanent Fund was established through revenue obtained from leasing 13.5 million acres of minerals and 8.8 million acres of surface land. Why does the state own more

mineral rights than surface land? There is an old custom in the West that when people sell land, they retain the mineral rights in case there is a huge pool of oil underneath that can put them on easy street forever. My father’s family were farmers. His father and grandfather owned land in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. Gradually the family sold the land. They always retained the mineral rights. The Texas property was near enough to producing land that oil companies have always been interested enough to occasionally lease it. They’ve never hit anything but possibly because of the current interest in energy independence, my cousins and I leased it again today. Maybe someday I no longer will be an ink-stained wretch.

World Opinion Egypt

As Egypt descended into violence recently you can’t help but ask: What happened to the revolution? Surely the young men and women who toppled Hosni Mubarak’s dictatorial regime didn’t intend to replace him with the authoritarian regime of Mohammed Morsi. The Egyptian army was deployed after rioting broke out in various Egyptian cities. Dozens have died in the violence. Army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has warned that the confrontation between Islamists and the more liberal-minded, secular-oriented protesters “could lead to the collapse of the state.” All this squeezes Morsi into a tight corner, of course. He has to suppress the riots, appease his own supporters and, at the extreme, avoid a civil war. Yet, Morsi can be faulted for having fostered the conditions that engender violence. He and his Muslim Brotherhood backers rammed through a proIslamist constitution with little regard for Egypt’s large secularized population, or much concern for women’s rights and religious minorities. Morsi’s recent attempt to give himself greater powers also did not go down well with many Egyptians. Perhaps even more crucially, Morsi’s regime has done little to improve the economic prospects of Egypt’s young — 45 million are under 30 years old. Rising food prices and high unemployment were the dry tinder that sparked the Arab Spring. Yet, two years later, unemployment among those between 19 and 24 hovers at 41 percent, while, according to one report, 86 percent of Egyptian households don’t have enough income to cover monthly food and shelter costs. An explosion was almost inevitable. After decades of near-totalitarian rule, Egypt’s civil society is much weakened. Unfortunately, the Morsi regime appears bent on weakening it more. How might the West respond? Tough-mindedly, using money as leverage. The West should grant loans only on condition that Morsi abandon the Islamist agenda. The West should not prop up another would-be theocratic dictatorship. Guest Editorial Ottawa Citizen, Ontario

Skeleton of King Richard III

The forensic dramas that have become so popular on our TV screens in recent years have whetted the public’s appetite for this particularly morbid line in detective work, but the discovery of the skeleton of Richard III beneath a Leicester car park trumps any work of fiction. It ranks as one of the most dramatic archaeological discoveries of modern times. A story that began more than five centuries ago with Richard’s death at the Battle of Bosworth Field has been concluded with the use of the most advanced techniques. The University of Leicester, whose coup this is, used archaeology, genealogical research, carbon dating and DNA-matching to conclude that the huddled skeleton with a twisted spine and severe head injuries is, beyond reasonable doubt, that of the last monarch of the House of York. One of the great mysteries of our history — the fate of Richard’s corpse — has been resolved. This extraordinary work of historical detection would not have been possible a decade ago, because DNA technology was not well enough advanced. Nor would it have been possible in the years ahead, because the direct bloodline traced by Leicester’s researchers is going to die out. A monarch who has become a by-word for regal villainy — largely because of the effectiveness of the Tudor propaganda machine, aided and abetted by William Shakespeare — will now be reinterred. Leicester Cathedral has been chosen for his final resting place, though some may think that York Minster would be more appropriate. Wherever he is laid to rest, the last English monarch to die in battle, who was “killed fighting manfully in the thickest press of his enemies” in the words of one chronicler, deserves the fullest pomp and ceremony. We will never again have a chance to entomb a sovereign five centuries after his death. Guest Editorial The Telegraph, London

Drone killings set a double standard An unsigned and undated Justice Department white paper, obtained by NBC News, reports The New York Times, “... is the most detailed analysis yet to come into public view regarding the Obama legal team’s views about the lawfulness of killing, without a trial, an American citizen who executive branch of ficials decide is an operational leader of Al Qaeda or one of its allies.” The proviso is they must pose “an imminent threat of violent attack against the United States.” If “an informed, high-level official” of the government decides they

A look at the difference between the sexes OPINION II

Roswell Daily Record

Adam did not get a choice in who his wife was. God made that decision for him. In the Bible, Genesis 2:22, we are told, “Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.” Although not stated in the scripture, God probably said something along the lines of “Adam, here is Eve.” I am sure Adam had some interesting visits with God about Eve. You have all heard the jokes about Adam and Eve: “God made woman better than man because He was just practicing when He created man” or “Man was made first and then God made woman and corrected the defects from his first try.” As we celebrate Valentine’s Day this week, I thought it would be appropriate to try to tackle some of the differences between men and women. Despite having much in common, men and women are really quite different. Of course any time any of us stereotype, we generally get in trouble. Oh, what the heck, I may as well get in trouble. Let me highlight some of the differences in the sexes.



Men are hunters, women are nurturers. Women enjoy the process, men are challenged by pursuing the prize at the end. Men don’t ask for directions. They are never really lost (at least that is what men want women to think). Women shop the day after Thanksgiving; men shop the day before Christmas (90 percent of Christmas Eve shoppers are men). Women are like crock pots; men are like microwaves. Men think linearly; women think spatially. A woman can be on a phone call for 15 minutes and a husband can ask her about her conversation and it takes her 45 minutes to explain the call. A

man can be on a phone call for 15 minutes and when asked by his wife about the call he can summarize it in one sentence or less. Men and women see the same happening totally different. Ask a woman about her wedding experience and she will talk about her dress, the flowers, the candles, the music and so on. Ask a guy about the wedding experience and most of what he wants to share you can’t talk about. Women think that they need to lose weight when they can’t fit into their jeans. Men think that they need to lose weight when they can’t fit into their car. Men communicate differently than women. Let me explain. I heard a speaker once share the following translations. The translations should be kept and used by men to help them better understand women. When a woman says, “We need,” what she really means is “I want.” When she says, “Do what you want,” what she really means is “You will pay for this later.” When she says, “It’s your decision,” what she really means is

window is open or broken, or a strange car is in the driveway. • Keep all windows and doors locked. • Call 911 in case of emergency. • In case of fire, get out of the house as quickly as possible. Call for help from a neighbor’s house. • Never let anyone into the home without your permission. • Never let a caller on the phone know that there is no adult home. • Do not use the stove, oven, microwave, space heaters or other heat-producing appliances while home alone, unless specifically given permission to do so. — Make sure your child knows her full name, phone number with area code and address, including city and state. One Saturday long ago I was on duty covering the practices of several

colleagues, including a pediatrician. I was called by a woman who told me she had a problem with her middle-school-aged son. The boy had gotten mad at another kid at school the day before and kept talking about it all day. The woman had left her son at home for several hours and returned to find that he had set the mattress of his bed on fire. I asked her, “Was your son bur ned?” She replied, “No, he’s fine.” “So how can I help you?” I asked. “I need your advice, doctor. Should I spank him?” That’s a child who needs a few more years before he’s left at home alone — and a mother who needs to help her child deal better with frustration.

“The correct answer should be obvious by now.” When a woman says, “We need to talk,” what she really means is “You need to listen.” When she says, “I’m not upset,” what she really means is “Of course I’m upset, and if you really love me, you’d know that.” When she says, “I’ll be ready in a minute,” what she really means is, “Kick off your shoes and watch another game, because it is going to be a while.” When a woman says, “Do I look fat in this?” what she really means is, “Tell me I look beautiful.” When she says, “You have to really learn to communicate,” what she really means is, “Just agree with me.” It makes life a lot easier.

The white paper says that if a target poses an imminent threat to the U.S., and cannot be captured, the strike “would be conducted in a manner consistent with applicable law of war principles.” It goes on to read, “A lawful killing in self-defense is not an assassination. In the Department’s view, a lethal operation conducted against a U.S. citizen whose conduct poses an imminent threat ... would be a legitimate act of national selfdefense that would not violate the assassination ban.” The American Civil Liberties Union has been consistent with both the Bush and Obama administrations. It strongly — and wrongly in my view — criticized President Bush for his anti-terrorism policies.

on a system of checks and balances.” She characterized it as “... a stunning overreach of executive authority.” She may have a point. One that should be debated in Congress. Appropriate committees should invite or, if necessary, subpoena the person, or persons, who wrote the document. U.S. citizens should know what kind of action constitutes “imminent threat.” At present, the government’s definition is a little cryptic. Given the way some criminal lawyers have “gamed” the U.S. court system to free hardened criminals, the president might be justified in this approach, but the larger question of how much authority he should be allowed to have in these circumstances and whether U.S. citizenship alone should be enough to guarantee due process when there is substantial evidence someone is involved in plots to kill other Americans, is a subject worthy of congressional consideration.

GOP out of touch with society

Dear Editor: The Republicans know they have a problem with blacks, Latinos, women and young people. They say they are committed to solving this problem. So, to improve their appeal to blacks and women, they viciously but ineffectively, attack a black woman, Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. After the hearings, she was completely exonerated of any crimes or wrong doing, and the Republicans ended up looking ridiculous, and mean-spirited. Then they doubled down on that mistake by attacking Hillary Clinton, arguably the most prominent and popular political figure in the world today. Certainly the most prominent and popular one in this country. The Republicans were totally ineffective in their attack and looked like a bunch of chihuahuas nipping at the feet of a bull mastiff. The Republicans are consistent and persistent. There are 20 committees in the House of Representatives. For the just-convened 113th Congress John Beignor, speaker of the House, appointed white men to lead 19 of those 20 committees. When a prominent Republican leader saw their group picture, he said “that picture is not good for the Republican Brand and should not be shown to the American people.” This is a slap in the face of three of their most important, and problem, voting demographics, blacks, Latinos and women. Paul Ryan recently said that Republicans do not have a problem with policy, ideology or product. He said their problem is packaging messaging and presenting, and that is why they lost the last election. I think they did an excellent job of packaging and presenting their product. The American people just did not buy what they were selling. They seem totally unwilling, or unable, to face the reality that they have to change their product, not just their rhetoric. I see very little evidence that they are changing their basic principles or policies on the major political issues of taxation, the national debt, jobs, abortion, Social Security, Medicare and immigration. They still want to voucherize Medicare and privatize Social Security. They still want to make abortion a “relic of the past.” They want to decrease the national debt by making the middle class and the poor pay more taxes. They still want the ultra-rich to pay less in taxes. They want to eliminate the EPA. Large oil and chemical companies can pollute our air and water as much as they want to. They still want to further reduce the number of teachers, firefighters and police. They want to eliminate planned parenthood, which provides reproductive and other health services to mostly low-income women. On Jan. 25 the Republicans re-elected Rence Prebus as chairman of the Republican National Committee. In his re-election speech he went to great lengths to promote the idea that the Republican policies are sound and do not need to be changed. This is good news for the Democrats, because as long as the Republicans stick to that philosophy, they will remain a minority party. You can put lipstick on a pig, but a pig with lipstick is still a pig. Randle Easley Roswell

Religious tolerance

Dear Editor: This response was prompted by a letter on Jan. 29 from James Licon, who had written a response to a previous contributor offering him the choice of Heaven or Hell for his opinion. I cannot fully express how weary I am of the many letters I have read that unfortunately reflect an attitude I have observed far too many times in the letters or community. It is a narrow minded, unattractive and unappealing hard held belief that there is only one religion, one belief, one book and one way to God, which is the God of the Bible. Anyone who chooses to walk another path or hold to another religion or spiritual tradition and belief is discounted, wrong, lost, misguided, damned, condemned and frequently judged, put-down, disrespected and excluded. The intolerance, judgments, hypocrisy and inability of many to respect and honor others who choose to walk a different spiritual path is frustrating, disappointing, hurtful, shameful and shall I say, un-godly! In my 65 years I have always had a deep personal knowing and love of/for God. I have been privileged to have studied and experienced many denominations, religions, traditions, beliefs and teachings and observed the people who closely follow their chosen path. Because of these experiences and perhaps in many cases in-spite of, I have come away with my own truth and absolute, and that is that there is a God, that God created and loves me and I love God who no doubt commands us to “Love one another.” But I also firmly believe that God gave us free will to choose how we seek Him, (or not!) and He would be far more concerned with how we treat one another than who holds the superior beliefs. There are over 1,000 Christian-faith groups in the U.S. and Canada alone with “some” considering themselves to be the only true Christian religion. If the Christian religions are unable to 100 percent agree, it should be no surprise that people often choose to walk a different spiritual path that more closely reflects how they believe. I thank God daily for the friends I have who accept me for me and respect my path. My hope is that letter writers and others will open their hearts and minds and stop judging and condemning those who hold different beliefs and accept the fact that there are at least 19 major religions in the world subdivided into at least 270 religious groups which means there are a lot of spiritual people out there who happen to walk on a different path and they/we are all worthy of understanding, tolerance, honor and respect. We have all been granted the same freedom of religion and speech and were created equally! “Love one another!” Linda Eatmon-Kral Roswell

Freedom of religion

Dear Editor: The Jan. 20 letter to the editor titled “City’s religious entanglement illegal” contained some of the errors that many of today’s secularists preach as fact. Let us begin by looking at the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with its often misunderstood and misquoted “Establishment Clause.” “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Notice that the passage only tells us what Congress is for-

bidden to do. It does not say that the city may not make facilities available to Christian organizations that would be available to a literary club. It does not say elected officials may not participate in nor encourage events that are Christian in character. The purpose of that amendment was to prevent the situation found in England, where the Anglican Church was an arm of the British government. The salaries and expenses of the church were paid from tax monies. The president will often declare a Day of Prayer. Even today that does not seem to be a problem.

Second Amendment rights

Dear Editor: Jay Miller’s column on why “Your guns are safe from the government” (Daily Record, Feb. 1) is another example of a liberal pundit serving up more biased journalism in an effort to sway public opinion. Jay’s failure to comprehend the meaning of the Second Amendment is a common ailment of all liberals. They claim this amendment “beats around the bush,” and doesn’t say what it really says. The liberal mind-set cannot/will not accept the fact that this amendment means what it says, and the Supreme Court has upheld this “right of the people” in two recent decisions. Mr. Miller’s reasoning on how the Second Amendment relates to slave militias left me quite agape. But in today’s liberal world the topic of slavery has become quite relevant. They use it repetitiously as they point out the similarity of the struggle for gay rights and slavery, women’s rights and slavery, and gun ownership and slavery. These little story book parables make it all so simplistic. Slavery was “evil,” so those opposing gay rights are “evil” and heaven forbid mentioning/discussing abortion or birth control for that is “evil.” Now for good measure toss in gun owners for they must be “evil” too. Jay does note for his readers that he doesn’t own a gun, so on this issue we must assume that he himself isn’t “evil,” but on the other hand — slaves, gay bashing and the oppressing of women, well there Mr. Miller isn’t so specific! His logic as to the cause of the recent surge in gun/ammo sales defies all logic, but then logical thinking is not a strong suit for any liberal. President Obama waged a very successful campaign by hammering home the “evil” of big oil, big pharma, big banks, etc. It becomes logical to accuse the big gun manufacturers/dealers into hoodwinking the nation. They are big, therefore “evil” and have single handedly created all the hub-hub about gun control just to create huge sales and pocket more profit. How ingenious but oh so “evil”! The poor old Obama administration with its liberal agenda has just been sitting on the sidelines, not proposing any gun ownership restrictions at all. After all we all know that Obama is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and he goes skeet shooting all the time! Terry R. Koenig Lake Arthur

Safe working habits must be a way of life LOCAL

Roswell Daily Record


Safety and safety training is nothing new in the United States, having its beginnings in the early 1900s under the auspices of the newly created U.S. Department of Labor. However, a new era of safety awareness began with the enactment of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act), signed into law on Dec. 29, 1970, by Pres. Richard Nixon. Having spent virtually all of my career in construction-related business or as a field level manager in corporate America, just the word “OSHA” usually sends

chills up and down my spine. It seems to be defined by one or all of three words: regulation, inspection, and fines! However, we should understand that the true intent of OSHA is to make safety in the workplace a way of life for all of us. Fortunately, most companies have placed a major emphasis on safety and, as a result, countless injuries and lives have been saved. The comments below were sent to me by a friend whose employer invests significant resources and reflects a great deal of pride in its safety program. These tips about hand tools seem to be pretty simple and yet

Pennington retires

Cathy Pennington has retired as senior executive administrative ministry assistant at Pecos Valley Baptist Association. Cathy served for over a dozen years to the thirty five churches that determine the association. PVBA honored her service with a retirement dinner in December, at La Fonda restaurant in Artesia. During the January executive board meeting she was honored for her service with area pastors praising her service. PVBA presented Cathy a Canon EOS 60 D Digital SLR Cath Pennington Camera. Pennington is an avid photographer having won several area awards for wildlife and landscape photos. She has also served, and will continue to serve, through the Disaster Relief ministry of PVBA. Cathy and husband Leo have fed and cared for people all over America, serving thousands of meals from Florida to California and New Orleans to Kansas. They will continue to serve as directors of the New Mexico Disaster Relief feeding unit. The Penningtons were the driving force behind the establishment of the PVBA feeding unit and the shower unit. The feeding Unit can prepare 12,000 meals a day, and the stateof-the-art shower unit is contained in a 34 foot trailer with six private shower rooms, a washer and a dryer. The unit also has a water purification system. At PVBA, Cathy became a certified Lifeway Ministry Assistant/Church Secretary Trainer. She led training conferences from Alaska to North Carolina. Cathy and Leo will continue to serve as Pastor and wife at Midway Baptist Church where they are beginning their twenty fifth year of ministry to their community and congregation. "Cathy has been a great friend and co-worker during these twelve years. She will be sorely missed. Her heart for ministry, skill level and personality have made this a special dozen years. I have depended on her heavily and she will be sorely missed," stated Joseph Tillery, Director of Missions at PVBA.

from misuse and improper maintenance. There are six basic safety rules which can prevent injury in the use of hand tools. First, keep all tools in good condition with regular maintenance. If the tool has a sharp edge, cover it when not in use. Secondly, always use the correct tool for the task at hand. For example, using a screwdriver as a chisel may cause the tip of the screwdriver to break and fly, hitting the user or other employees. It is also important to inspect each tool for damage before it is used. Perhaps the wooden handle on a tool such as a hammer or an axe is loose or splintered. It

can fly off and injure the user or others nearby. Next, keep body parts ‘out of the line of fire’—the sharp edge’s direction of travel. The cutting edge of sharp tools must be directed away from the tool user and coworkers working in close proximity. Knives and cutting tools should be sharp. A dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one. Finally, be sure to utilize appropriate personal protective equipment such as safety goggles, safety glasses or cut-resistant gloves. There are, of course, other rules of thumb which should be considered when using hand tools as well as


power tools. Good safety practices require that floors are kept as clean and dry as possible to prevent slips, trips and falls. Additionally, just good common sense can be beneficial. It is true that OSHA and similar entities strongly “encouraged” American business to take action to create safe places to work. However, we should also be proud of the many, many companies which continue to work hard to make safety a way of life. While employers have the obligation to train their people and to provide safe procedures and conditions, we as individuals are ultimately responsible for our own safety.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  You have been so busy living life to the fullest that you might not have realized how tired you’ve gotten. You can see it now in your reactions. When you become triggered, your anger could get a little out of control. Excessiveness seems to follow you. Tonight: Not to be found. This Week: Tuesday you claim your power. Others naturally bow in the presence of your energy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)     You have the rare opportunity to get some quality time with your loved ones. You could have a little too much energy and good will. You might want to buy a token of appreciation for nearly anyone you see. Discipline yourself! Tonight: Forget tomorrow. Live today.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)  Reach out to someone at a distance. Your conversation could be very lively, and it might take you to a point where you start fighting over a trivial matter. Try to avoid this situation for the sake of the

Tennis star continues family tradition in Las Cruces LAWRENCE FOSTER RECORD ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

Sacrifice and hard work go hand in hand with being a top-notch athlete. Early morning workouts before school or work, and giving up a Friday night out with friends to hit the weights are commonplace among athletes and that is the case for Gabby Joyce. The former Rocket took sacrifice to the next level, however, when she left Goddard prior to her senior year so she could attend the John Newcombe Tennis Academy in New Braunfels, Texas. She made the move to improve her chances of playing tennis at the next level and, in December, that move paid off when she decided to play at New Mexico State.

LEFT: Gabby Joyce hits a backhand return during a match last spring at Goddard.


Joyce’s journey to Las Cruces began when she was in eighth grade, according to her brother, Mitchell Joyce. “When we started, she was in eighth grade and we said, ‘What is your goal?’” he said. “We all discussed, let’s see if we can’t get ourselves a chance to play college tennis. New Mexico State was never in the picture because we didn’t


METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton has chosen Rob Ryan as his new defensive coordinator, hoping New Orleans can overhaul a unit that was historically bad last season. Ryan, the brother of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, spent the past two seasons as Dallas’ defensive coordinator. He was fired after last season, when his defense ranked 19th. “We have experience in preparing and playing against his defenses and they’ve always been challenging in terms of the different looks and pressures that they feature,” Payton said when Ryan’s hiring was announced Saturday, one day after he interviewed for the job. “We’ve had the chance to visit with each other and talk about our visions for our team and I’m excited about moving forward as we prepare for the 2013 season.” In 2010, Ryan was Cleveland’s defensive coordinator when the Browns beat the Saints in the Superdome 30-17, intercepting passes by Drew Brees four times. One of those interceptions was made by linebacker Scott Fujita, who had been a captain of New Orleans’ defense a season earlier and had helped Ryan prepare and execute the game plan against the Saints. Payton said he also has added Stan Kwan as an assistant special teams coach. Kwan has been an NFL assistant 23 years, the past three as special teams assistant in Buffalo. Just days after returning from his season-long suspension in connection with the NFL’s investigation of the Saints’ cash-for-hits bounty program, Payton fired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and said he would switch New Orleans’ defensive scheme from a 4-3 alignment (four down linemen, three linebackers) to a 3-4. The Saints yielded 7,042 yards last season, the worst single-season total in NFL history. Ryan has run 3-4 schemes for years. He worked as a linebacker coach in such defenses in New England, where he was part of two Super Bowlwinning teams. He then spent five seasons as defensive coordinator in Oakland (2004-2008), followed by two seasons in Cleveland before moving to Dallas in 2011. Now the 50-year-old Ryan takes his fourth defensive coordinator job since 2004 while becoming Payton’s fourth defensive coordinator since 2006.

Lobos stumble against UNLV, still lead MWC See BRIEFS, Page B2

LAS VEGAS (AP) — UNLV came into Saturday night’s game against New Mexico desperate for a win. Following a pair of surprising losses, the Runnin’ Rebels earned it in impressive fashion. Anthony Bennett had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead UNLV to a 64-55 victory over No. 15 New Mexico. The Rebels we coming off a pair of losses to Boise State and at Fresno State. Though they shot just 37.1 percent (23 of 62) from the field, the Rebels were 9 of 22 (40.9 percent) from beyond the arc. Bennett started the scoring with a 3-pointer less than a minute into the game, and the Rebels never relinquished the lead. Up 15-8 with 13:40 left in the first half, UNLV (18-6, 5-4 Mountain West) went on a 9-0 run while holding the Lobos scoreless for 5:31, until Alex Kirk scored at the 8:09 mark. New Mexico (20-4, 7-2) would tighten the gap to 24-16, but the Rebels closed the first half on a 13-7 run to take a 37-23 halftime lead. Both teams came out playing at a frenetic pace, as they combined for 11 turnovers in the first 8 1⁄2 minutes, mostly because of hustle and simply trying to execute plays. See LOBOS, Page B3

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — At least this time, Brandt Snedeker feels it’s a fair fight. He started the final round at Torrey Pines seven shots behind Tiger Woods. A week later in the Phoenix Open, he went into the final round six shots behind Phil Mickelson. Snedeker, the hottest player in golf this year without a win to show for it, put matters into his own hands Saturday by running off four straight birdies along the prettiest part of Pebble Beach for a 4under 68 that gave him a share of the lead with 31-year-old rookie James Hahn in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. “You never know what tomorrow holds, but I feel like I’m in great position, and I’m going to be surely more prepared, no matter who is around me in the last group,� said Snedeker, who posted his ninth straight round in the 60s. “I’m probably going to have the most experience of anybody in those last couple groups of winning a golf tournament.� That won’t make Sunday any easier. Snedeker made a detour to the CBS Sports booth after his round, and then headed straight to the practice green. He was irritated by missing four birdie putts inside 10 feet, including on the last two

It was still time for Oklahoma to celebrate, and Hield would get bounced around on fans’ shoulders in a rare on-the-court postgame party at the Lloyd Noble Center. Romero Osby scored 17 points, Steven Pledger added 15 and the Sooners held off No. 5 Kansas 72-66 on Saturday for their first victory over a top 5 team in seven years. With the Jayhawks (19-4,

7-3 Big 12) on a surprising three-game slide, the conference regular season championship is suddenly up for grabs. “It’s a step, but there’s a lot of steps,� Sooners coach Lon Kruger said. “There are a bunch of small steps necessary, and again it happens because these guys have worked hard and continue to work at it and have maintained a real good attitude about getting better each day.� The Sooners (15-7, 6-4) snapped a 10-game losing streak in the series and took down a top 5 opponent

for the first time since beating No. 4 Texas on Jan. 28, 2006. Freshman Je’lon Hornbeak went 4 for 6 at the free throw line in the final minute, just enough to keep the Jayhawks at bay. See DROPS, Page B4

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — When Ben Brust tied the game at the end of regulation with a shot just from just inside midcourt, his teammate Mike Bruesewitz looked over at Wisconsin coach Bo R yan and saw something unusual. His coach had both his arms in the air. “You know when he shows some emotion, you’ve done something pretty special,� Bruesewitz said. Brust hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin beat No. 3 Michigan 65-62 on Saturday. “It was awesome, something I’ll remember forever, and I’m sure a lot of people will,� Brust said of the game, which ended with students stor ming the court and Bruesewitz taking the public address announcer’s microphone to thank the crowd as stu-

dents celebrated around him. The Wolverines became the third top three team to lose this week as No. 1 Indiana lost to Illinois and No. 2 Florida was beaten by Arkansas. This should be the sixth straight week with a dif ferent No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25. Brust’s shot at the end of regulation was a dramatic turn of events for Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) and a soul crusher for Michigan (21-3, 8-3). Just moments earlier, T im Hardaway Jr. hit a contested 3-pointer to put the Wolverines up 65-52 with less than 3 seconds left in regulation. Following a timeout, Bruesewitz passed up his first option in the inbounds play and hit Brust in stride. The guard took one dribble across halfcourt See STUN, Page B4

Northeast storm disrupts schedule for sports teams

BOSTON (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning were already in Boston when the blizzard shut down the roads, trains and airports. The Bruins and all of the game officials were standing by, too. But with a state of emergency still in effect through most of Massachusetts, public transportation shut down and the roads closed by a storm that dumped as much as a yard of snow on some areas, the NHL decided to postpone Saturday’s game between the Lightning and the Bruins. No makeup date had been scheduled, a process made more difficult by the lack of off-days in the compressed 48-game schedule that resulted from the lockout. Several other professional teams were forced to rearrange their travel plans because of the storm, which stranded the Knicks in Minnesota and the Spurs in Detroit on Friday night. New York’s airports reopened on Saturday, but Boston’s Logan Airport remained closed into Saturday night as airlines canceled more than 5,300 flights. The Knicks, who played the Timberwolves on Friday night, returned to New York on Saturday for their Sunday matinee against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs, who ended their 11-game winning streak against the Pistons, play the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night. The Nets took a train home instead of flying from Washington after losing to the Wizards on Friday night, posting a photo of the players boarding a train with the caption, “Backup plan.” The Clippers arrived in New York as scheduled on Saturday. At least five deaths were blamed on the storm, which dumped as much as 3 feet of snow in some parts of New England. More than 650,000 homes and businesses lost power, with some not expecting electricity to be restored for days. Wind gusts of over 80 mph were recorded. By midday Saturday, the National Weather Service reported preliminary snowfall totals of 24.9 inches in Boston, short of the 27.1 inches that fell in the Blizzard of ’78 that left hundreds attending the Beanpot college hockey tournament stuck at the old Boston Garden for days. The Bruins said Saturday’s game would be rescheduled as soon as a makeup date could be confirmed. The process is complicated because the Bruins share a building with the NBA’s Celtics. The Bruins and Lightning each already had road games scheduled for Sunday night. Other games in the Northeast went on as scheduled. A sellout crowd of 17,625 attended the Pittsburgh Penguins’ game in New Jersey game less than 24 hours after a storm dropped more than a foot of snow in the area. The New York Islanders were slated to play at home against the Buffalo Sabres at 7 p.m. Two Ivy League men’s college basketball games that had been scheduled for Saturday night were moved back to Sunday because of treacherous travel conditions. Dartmouth will play at Cornell at noon on Sunday in Ithaca, N.Y., and Harvard will visit Columbia at 2 p.m. Sunday in New York. Aqueduct also called off Saturday’s card because of the storm. The track and Belmont Park were expected to remain open for wagering on out-of-town races,

Altogether both teams committed 24 turnovers (New Mexico 13, UNLV 11). UNLV, which led by as many 16 in the second half, came into the game limiting foes to 38.5 percent shooting overall and 29.5 from long range. The Rebels stepped it up defensively to stifle the Lobos to 33.9 percent shooting (21 of 62) and a meager 18.2 percent 4 of 22) from beyond the arc. “We were coming off very tough two-game road trip, and our guys were disappointed, frustrated (and) mad; but more than anything we were determined,” UNLV coach Dave Rice said. “We understood the challenge of playing against a terrific New Mexico team and as a program we took that challenge. It was a fantastic defensive effort. “I can’t say enough about the resolve and the resiliency of our team to find a way to win this game.” Bryce DeJean-Jones and Katin Reinhardt each scored 16 points for UNLV. Jones was 3 of 6 from 3-point range, and Reinhardt was 4 of 7. Anthony Marshall added 11 points for the Rebels. Since the 3-point field goal was adopted by the NCAA in 1986-87, UNLV has converted at least one 3-pointer in all 863 games played, a Division I record. “We needed to have

Mullings leads New Mexico State past Seattle 60-57

LAS CRUCES (AP) — Daniel Mullings scored 18 points and New Mexico State won its 11th straight game, defeating Seattle 60-57 Saturday night. Sim Bhullar added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Aggies (17-8, 11-2 Western Athletic), who prevailed by making 24 of 36 free throws. Seattle (7-16, 2-11) shot better than New Mexico State (39 percent to 34 percent) and also outrebounded the Aggies (44-34) but was just 8 of 13 at the foul line. Deshaun Sunderhaus scored 14 points for the Redhawks and Chad Rasmussen had 12. In a game that was close throughout, New Mexico State broke a 50-50 tie when Sy Bandja nailed a 3-pointer with 4:40 remaining and Bhullar followed with two free throws at the 3:09 mark. The Redhawks made it a single-possession game three times in the closing minutes, but the Aggies hit 5 of 6 free throws the rest of the way to seal the win.

Longtime Fresno State coach Sweeney dies at 83

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Jim Sweeney, who coached Fresno State’s football team for 19 seasons and retired with a schoolrecord 144 victories, has died. He was 83. The school announced Sweeney’s death on Friday night. It provided no further details. “Most of what our football program has accomplished in recent years was clearly made possible by the path that Coach Sweeney blazed for Fresno State football throughout his two decades of leadership,” athletic director Thomas Boeh said in a statement. “He was a man of vision, toughness and character who led the Bulldogs to new heights and went on to become a national icon.” Sweeney also coached Montana State and Washington State before he was hired by Fresno State in 1976. He retired following

individual accountability and we did that tonight,” Rice said. “For us to be successful, we need everybody. Guys who play a lot of minutes, guys who play a few minutes, our scout team. We want our program to be about ‘team,’ and this was a terrific team victory for us tonight. “It’ll matter even more if we continue to win more.” The Lobos, who had established themselves as the team to beat in the Mountain West during the first half of the season, came into Las Vegas sporting a gaudy 7-1 league mark, three games better than UNLV. UNLV avenged an earlier clash in which the Lobos won 65-60 at The Pit on Jan. 9. “We had our opportunities but we didn’t make the most of them,” New Mexico coach Steve Alford said. “They got us out of character in the first half. They played with greater poise in the first 10 minutes than we did. It was our lack of poise offensively and our inability to make shots (that cost us the game).” UNLV has now won 12 straight home games and 11 straight at the Thomas & Mack Center. In addition, the Rebels have won 31 of their last 32 regular-season games at the TMC and have won 13 straight regularseason home games against Mountain West foes. Kirk scored 17 points and grabbed a career high 16 rebounds to lead New Mexico.


the 1996 season, and the field at Bulldog Stadium was renamed in his honor. Sweeney finished with 200 wins in 32 seasons as a head coach. “Coach Sweeney is an icon in college football who put Fresno State football on the national map,” current Bulldogs coach Tim DeRutyer said. “His larger than life personality and tenacity in which he coached the game are legendary.” During Sweeney’s time with the Bulldogs, they had 35 players selected in the NFL draft. Trent Dilfer and Henry Ellard were among his most prominent players. Sweeney, a native of Butte, Mont., also spent time as an assistant coach with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Cardinals.

Column: Nothing to fear from a snowy Super Bowl

By Tim Dahlberg AP Sports Columnist Woody Johnson owns the New York Jets, so he’s no stranger to making big proclamations. Consider this one, just after the New York area won the bid for the first Super Bowl in an outdoor stadium in a cold weather market. “I like doing things for the first time,” Johnson said. “I hope it snows.” Not quite as bold as guaranteeing his team would be both a host and participant in the game. As dysfunctional as the Jets are, it’s hard to imagine they’ll still be playing next Feb. 2 when the two best teams in football square off in the 48th big game of the modern — or any other — era. But Johnson could easily get his wish when it comes to the weather, as New Yorkers were reminded this weekend. Probably not a foot of snow like the New York area got hit with in the latest storm just days after the Super Bowl in New Orleans. But cold, definitely, with snow more than just a random possibility. It’s a scenario that will occupy organizers for many long hours. There will be volunteers ready to sweep snow from the stadium at the Meadowlands, portable heaters everywhere, and extra stocks of hot chocolate and schnapps for corporate executives to sip in the stands. Ultimately, though, it’s not something the NFL needs to be terribly worried about. The league can do no wrong, and that won’t change just because the elements will

intrude on the next Super Bowl. Might even make it more interesting for the 100 million or so people who will be watching in the comfort of their own living rooms. Football is a game meant to be played in the elements, as Commissioner Roger Goodell reminded us last week in New Orleans. One of the NFL’s iconic games was the so-called “Ice Bowl” of 1967, when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field to win a spot in the second Super Bowl. The temperature at game time was 14 degrees below zero, and the wind chill was far worse. The field was a sheet of ice, and it was so cold referees couldn’t use whistles because they became frozen to their lips. Sorry, New Jersey, but you’re not going to top that. And they still played the game. Yes, it could be cold. Yes, there could be snow. And, yes, the game would be better off in Florida or inside a dome with good electrical service. That’s especially true if the participants are teams used to domes or warm climates. But the Jets and Giants spent a lot of money to build the new stadium they share, and they wanted a Super Bowl for the New York metropolitan area. Ultimately that’s what drives Super Bowl selection these days. Owners want to reward their fellow owners, and five of the last 10 title games have gone to cities that have ponied up for new stadiums. Giving one to the New York area was always a little dicey, which is why it took four votes by owners a few years back to give the game to the Meadowlands over bids by warm weather sites Tampa and South Florida. It came after organizers urged them to “Make Some History” and showed a video that included clips from historic cold-weather games. Trust the NFL to pull this one off. This is a league, after all, that is so untouchable that a 34-minute power outage in New Orleans not only turned a rout into a competitive game but made TV ratings go up around the country. And the time it rained at a Super Bowl? You may not remember the game, but probably do remember Prince playing “Purple Rain” as it came down in Miami in 2007. Nothing can dent the NFL’s widespread popularity. Not a lockout, replacement referees, or even brain injuries. Certainly not a little cold and snow. “The plans that have been developed for the Super Bowl, I think, are extraordinary, and they’re just beginning to be released,” Goodell said in New Orleans. “We will be prepared for the weather factors.” Actually, the NFL has some issues to worry about other than the weather at the Meadowlands. Hotel rooms will surely be in short supply even at exorbitant prices, and transportation for teams, support staff, media and volunteers will be a challenge. There are also a ton of logistical worries that go along with putting the most watched sporting event in America in the most congested area in the country, and not everyone is cooperating. The mayors of at least two towns near MetLife Stadium, upset that their towns don’t get some benefit from the facility, threatened in a recent press release not to help with police, fire or other municipal services needed for the Super Bowl unless the NFL starts writing some checks. “With one of (the) world’s largest sporting events coming to the East Rutherford venue, there is little doubt that the mayors will be expecting a call that their services are needed,” Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli said in the statement. “The answer will be clear: Don’t ask.” The Super Bowl will not be without problems. Even the NFL can’t make everyone happy, not matter what the weather is like. But let a little cold and snow mess up the first — and quite possibly only — Super Bowl in the New York area? Fuhggedaboutit.

Sermanni wins debut as U.S. women’s soccer coach

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — This was quite the debut for Tom Sermanni, and Christen Press. Sermanni coached the U.S. women’s soccer team to a 4-1 win over Scotland on Saturday, making the most of two first-half goals by Press. It was Sermanni’s first game in charge since he was hired by the U.S. Soccer Federation in October. He was born in Scotland and spent the last eight years as Australia’s coach, leading the Matildas to the quarterfinals of the last two Women’s World Cups. “It’s good to get the team out on the park,” Sermanni said. “What impressed me was the number of chances that they got and how they can create chances at all times. At times, some of the combinations impressed me. So just the way they focus and go about doing the job and winning games is very impressive.” Press played in her first game for the national team and had a hand in each of the United States’ first three goals in the exhibition at the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, scoring twice and assisting on the third. “I was hoping that my first cap would be my first start and my first goal all in the same day,” she said. “Sort of was going for the trifecta. My teammates made it really easy for me and I’m really thankful for that.” She got the Americans on the board in the 13th minute, taking advantage of a poor clearing attempt by Scotland. The ball was batted back in the direction of Press, who deftly lifted a kick over the defenders and goalkeeper Gemma Fay. Press’ second score came at the 32minute mark. She took a pass from Tobin Heath and sent a header from 22 feet out into the left corner of the net. The U.S. made it 3-0 early in the second half when Shannon Boxx got a pass from Press and lifted a kick over the outstretched arms of Fay. “On that first goal, the clearance by the defense was a little short and it was my job to be there for anything that came out,” the 24-year-old Press said. “At that point, it’s just have fun, shoot and see what happens.” Press had trained in Sweden the past year and called that experience “a blessing in my life.” “I learned so much there, just seeing the different styles of soccer,” she said. “All the things I’ve been able to learn as a person and a player has helped me prepare to play at this level.” Scotland avoided a shutout in the 54th minute. Kim Little drilled a hard shot past U.S. goalie Nicole Barnhart, who replaced Jill Loyden at intermission. Sydney Leroux closed out the scoring for the United States, sending a loose ball into an uncontested net in the 89th minute in front of a crowd of 18,656. The Americans stretched their unbeaten streak to 24 games (21-0-3) dating to the 2012 season. It was only the second game between the United States and Scotland. The American women won 8-2 in the first meeting in 2002, powered by Abby Wambach’s first career hat trick and the last three-goal performance by Mia Hamm. The countries will play again Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn., at the home of the Tennessee Titans. “This was a great start for us,” Wambach said. “It’s a new experience with a new coach. We tried new formations with new players and this was a great way to get things going for this year. “Everyone was out there, having fun and this proved to be a great starting point for us for this year. We’ve only been together with the new coach for a short time, but we’re all working hard, having fun and we’re enjoying it. It’s a great marriage so far.”

quicker. It is tough, but I definitely think I am improving. It is kind of like going to college early.” Gabby’s mom and former Goddard girls tennis coach, Becky, said that the move to Texas was necessary if Gabby wanted to play at the next level. “Like Gabby and Mitch both said, we had gotten to a point

and launched the shot, which hit nothing but net. Ryan said the play was drawn up to see how Michigan defended the first cutter, Brust read the defense and reacted. “The best thing was Mike’s pass on the dime on the run, didn’t have to reach back for it, able to catch it all in one motion,” Ryan said. Michigan still had fouls to give before the shot, and coach John Beilein said the order coming out of the timeout was to foul. He also put Caris LeVert on Brust to bolster the defense. “We were definitely fouling, wanted to keep everyone in front of us and (Brust) turned the corner on (LeVert) just enough that he couldn’t foul him,” Beilein said. “I thought we had them once they couldn’t get their initial guy. “With Caris’ quickness, we thought he could get there, but he didn’t.”

where we were going to have to travel a lot more (to play tennis) and that is hard when you have a job and family,” she said. “It was to the point where she needed to go to an academy if she wanted to play college tennis. We talked about it as a family and we decided that is what she needed to do.” While many tennis coaches focus throughout a season on getting ready for state, Gabby said that, at the Academy, it is like state every day.

For all the fireworks in the final 3 seconds, the teams only managed seven points in overtime, including Brust’s winning 3pointer. Following Brust’s shot, Hardaway couldn’t connect on his drive to the hoop on the next Michigan possession, and Glenn Robinson III fouled Jared Berggren on the rebound. The Wolverines went to a full-court press with two more fouls to give. But the Badgers broke the press, and Michigan had to foul twice more to finally put R yan Evans on the free throw line. Evans, who shoots less than 43 percent from the line, missed the front end of a 1-and-1, and Burke couldn’t connect in a rushed final possession for the Wolverines. It was another grinding win for the Badgers keyed by their defense. Michigan came in as one of the top scoring teams in the country at almost 78 points per game. But Wisconsin held Michigan to less than 40 percent shooting from the field, including 5 of 18


“There, with 30 other kids we have, we play matches three times a week, so the match play is so much better,” she said. “(In Roswell), we would drill and do everything we could to get ready for state and, there, it is like you are going to state every day.” Gabby said that she sent a bunch of recruitment letters back and that Aggie coach Ivan Fernandez was quick in his response to express interest in the former Rocket.

from beyond the 3-point line. Michigan was 1 for 7 from the field in overtime, and the offensive futility was highlighted by one sequence in which Mitch McGary stole the ball outside the 3-point line and drove the other way only to miss the layup with Berggren defending the rim. Beilein said the Wolverines missed out on 14 points thanks to missed layups. “I’m not talking about when they’re really contesting,” Beilein said. “I’m talking about we had the ball, the basket and us, and it didn’t go in.” Brust scored 14 points for the Badgers, while Berggren added 13 and eight rebounds. Sam Dekker scored 12 points, while Evans finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. Burke scored 19 points to lead Michigan, but needed 21 shots to do it. Hardaway added 18, and McGary had 12 points and eight rebounds. It was the second

Roswell Daily Record “We sent out recruitment letters to a lot of different places and I didn’t even think of State,” she said. “Ivan, the coach there, immediately sent a letter back and was interested. He offered so much, it was like a dream. It is closer to home after being away this year. I think it will be great.” The Joyce family is quite familiar with NMSU — Gabby’s parents, Becky (class of 1981) and Kendall (’80), and sister, Hillary, (expected ’13 graduate) have all

attended the school. Gabby said that Fernandez will give her a chance to prove herself this fall. “I am going to be further down the ladder at first, of course,” she said. “(Ivan) said I would get to play a couple of times in the offseason and, if I prove myself, I can play in the spring. “I am nervous, but I think if I work hard and train all summer, I think I will put in a good fight.”

Wisconsin’s Ben Brust, top, celebrates after hitting a 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation against Michigan on Saturday. Wisconsin defeated Michigan 65-62 in overtime. straight game for both teams to go past regulation after the Badgers beat Iowa 74-70 in double overtime on Wednesday and Michigan downed Ohio State 7674 in overtime on Tuesday. Several Wisconsin play-

ers said consecutive overtime games exemplified their will to win even as critics contend they’re not talented enough, not fast enough and, as Bruesewitz said he’s seen on Twitter, not good-looking enough.

“We have a group of guys in that locker room that believe and is going to fight until the end until you tell us we can’t play any more basketball,” Berggren said. “We just find a way to get it done.”

NBA capsules: Mavericks run past Golden State DALLAS (AP) — Shawn Marion scored a season-high 26 points, O.J. Mayo added 19 and the Dallas Mavericks handed the Golden State Warriors their fourth straight loss, 116-91, Saturday night. Dirk Nowitzki scored 15 points and Darren Collison keyed a firstquarter run for Dallas, which beat Golden State for the first time this season after dropping their first two meetings to the Warriors by a combined seven points. The Mavericks built a 27-point lead in the second quarter to put away the Warriors early. Golden State’s Stephen Curry had 18 points on 8-of-23 shooting and Carl Landry added 13. The Warriors were winless on a fourgame road trip that started with a 140-109 loss to Houston on Tuesday night.

Cameron Clark hit two free throws to finish it off, and fans stormed the court after Hield stole the ball and dunk after the final buzzer sounded. Just a week ago, Kansas had the nation’s longest winning streak at 18 games. Now, the program is on its first threegame losing streak since February 2005. “We had lost two straight, too. We needed a win. So, they could have looked at us the same way,” Osby said. “But we just came out and we just fought.” Ben McLemore led Kansas with 15 points and Jeff Withey had 14 points, six rebounds and the one block he needed to tie Greg Ostertag’s school record with 258 for his career. The Jayhawks outscored Oklahoma 3216 in the paint, but missed seven of their first 12 free throws to stall their attempts at a comeback. “Obviously three in a row is not good, but this game to me today, I’m not leaving out of here disgusted with my team at all because we actually played better today,” said Kansas coach Bill Self, who was highly critical of his team after a loss at lastplace TCU on Wednesday.

“We played a good team today, and they shot the heck out of the basketball.” Oklahoma had a 23-11 advantage in bench scoring, led by Clark’s 10 points, to snap its own two-game skid. The Sooners never trailed over the final 30 minutes. McLemore drilled a 3-pointer from the right corner to start a string of eight straight Jayhawk points, cutting the deficit to 5756 on Elijah Johnson’s runner with 4:58 remaining before Amath M’Baye snapped a 4minute drought for Oklahoma by hitting a 3-pointer. Travis Releford had a chance to tie it at 60 before missing the second of two free throws with 4:12 to play, and Pledger connected on a 3-pointer from the right wing at the opposite end to give Oklahoma a smidgen of breathing room. Hornbeak then answered Withey’s two-handed slam with a 3-pointer, and the Jayhawks were forced to foul when Johnson came up empty on a drive to the hoop. Hornbeak hit one of two free throws for a 67-61 lead with 57.7 seconds left, then split another pair after Johnson hit a 3. McLemore’s tip-in of a miss by Naadir Tharpe got Kansas within 68-66 with 15.7 seconds left. Hornbeak then went 2 for 2 at

the line when it counted the most. “I missed two. I’m not really happy about that,” Hornbeak said. “They went in and out on me. But the last two, I knew the touch — exactly where I needed to put the ball at.” The Jayhawks, who made just three baskets and scored 13 points in the first half of the loss at TCU, surpassed that scoring total in just over 5 minutes as both teams got out to a crisp start. The problem for Kansas was at the other end, with the Sooners hitting 15 of their first 25 shots and leading by as many as eight points in the final minute of the first half. Tharpe then earned a defensive 5-second call against Isaiah Cousins and had two baskets to get the Jayhawks within 38-34 at halftime. Kansas got as close as one before Osby’s thirdchance basket started a string of eight straight Sooner points to restore the lead to 55-46 with 10 minutes left. “I hate to say this but there’s a lot of teams in the country that lose two or three games in a row, and there’s a lot of teams that struggle winning away from home,” Self said. “This today isn’t magnified from a win-loss standpoint if we had taken care of business when we should have the prior games.”

The Nuggets, who have won 15 of 17, are on their longest winning streak since posting 10 straight victories from March 30April 15, 2005. Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The All-Star guard picked up his fourth foul with 5:20 remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading 72-61. Irving returned to start the fourth quarter with Denver ahead 84-73. He scored 12 points in the period, but Cleveland’s rally fell short. The loss ended Cleveland’s three-game winning streak that matched a season high. The Cavaliers haven’t won four games in a row since March 17-24, 2010, which was LeBron James’ final campaign with the franchise.

76ers 87, Bobcats 76 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Lavoy Allen had 14 points and a careerhigh 22 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday scored 20 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to an win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night. Evan Turner had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Jeremy Pargo scored 12 points in his Sixers debut. Pargo signed a 10-day contract this week after he was waived by Cleveland.

holes that cost him some room for error on the final day. Hahn birdied his last three holes for a 66 at Spyglass Hill, putting him in the final group for the first time. They were at 12-under 202, one shot ahead of Chris Kirk, who had a 64 on the super-fast greens of Monterey Peninsula. Mickelson tumbled down the rocks and down the leaderboard on the final hole at Pebble Beach. The defending champion hit a tee shot on the par -5 18th that ran over the cliff and down toward the beach. Mickelson went down to see if the ball could be found — and possibly played — when his right foot gave way and he landed hard on his back side, bracing for the fall with his hands. For all the celebrity antics that are part of the show Saturday at Pebble, this is the one video that might go viral. “I got lucky,” Mickelson said. “I didn’t get hurt.”

their eight-game homestand that ends Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The solid showing at home has helped the Sixers inch closer to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. Ramon Sessions scored 20 points, Byron Mullens had 16 and Gerald Henderson 13 as the NBA-worst Bobcats lost their seventh straight.

Pistons 105, Bucks 100 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Charlie Villanueva hit a 3-pointer with 9.7 seconds left and Rodney Stuckey sealed the win with two free throws as the Detroit Pistons beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night. Brandon Jennings, who scored 26 points, took an inbounds pass from Monta Ellis and made a tough fadeaway shot with 47.8 seconds left, but Jose Calderon, who tied his season high with 23 points, came back with a running layup for Detroit that tied it at 100. After a timeout, the Pistons worked the ball to Villanueva, who got it at the top of the key and swished a 3 with 9.7 seconds left. On the Bucks’ next possession, Jennings fired up a 31-foot 3-point attempt with 3.2 seconds left. Stuckey’s two free throws with 1.6 seconds remaining were the final margin. Not physically, anyway. Mickelson hit his next shot into the Pacific Ocean and had to scramble for a triple bogey, leaving him 11 shots behind and ending his hopes of a record-tying fifth win at Pebble Beach. All the attention now shifts to Snedeker, who has shot in the 60s in 15 out of his 18 rounds this year. Mickelson had a good look at Snedeker last week in Phoenix when he finally put him away with late birdies on the back nine. “He’s been playing great golf these last couple of weeks ... and it looks like this could be his week,” Mickelson said. “But final round at Pebble Beach, a lot of things happen and he has to play one more good round. I know he has it in him, but he still has to go do it.” A year ago, Mickelson came from six shots off the lead to win. There were two dozen players within six shots of the lead after Saturday’s round, a group that included Retief Goosen and U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, whose 7under 65 at Pebble was the lowest score to par all week.



Nissan quarterly profit dives on China sales slump Roswell Daily Record

TOKYO (AP) — Nissan Motor Co. reported a 35 percent plunge in OctoberDecember profit to 54.1 billion yen ($579 million) as global sales languished, especially in China, where anti-Japanese sentiment flared over a territorial dispute. Quarterly sales dipped 5.3 percent from a year earlier to 2.2 trillion yen ($23.5 billion), Yokohama-based Nissan said Friday. Nissan’s earnings fell short of the 61 billion yen ($652 million) profit forecast by a FactSet survey of analysts. The earnings report prompted Standard & Poor’s analyst Efraim Levy to downgrade Nissan’s U.S. shares from “Buy” to “Hold.” Nissan shares fell $1.07, or 5.1 percent, to close at $20.03. Levy also cut his 2013 earnings estimate for Nissan by 9 cents to $2.01, but kept his price target for the stock at $22. All the Japanese automakers have reported sales declines in China, where a territorial dispute set off anti-Japanese riots and boycotts in the last months of 2012. A slowdown in Europe added to Nissan’s woes. Nissan also struggled in the key U.S. market, which was booming

for rival Toyota Motor Corp. Corporate Vice President Joji Tagawa acknowledged Nissan’s performance had not reached its targets, but promised a recovery. China sales in January showed some recovery and Nissan was also planning new models in the U.S., he told reporters. Nissan’s sales were strong in other parts of the world, including Brazil, the Middle East and Asia excluding China as well as Japan. Nissan, based in the port city of Yokohama, stuck to its forecasts for a 320 billion yen ($3.4 billion) profit on 9.82 trillion yen ($105 billion) sales in the fiscal year ending March, despite the solid perk it is getting from a weaker yen. Nissan, which makes the Leaf electric car, the Infiniti luxury model and March subcompact, gained 21.9 billion yen ($234 million) in operating profit for the latest quarter from the weakening yen. Earlier this week, the yen was a near three-year low against the dollar on expectations of super easy monetary policy under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “This should work as a plus for our business,” Tagawa told reporters of the

cheap yen. “The overly expensive yen is finally getting corrected.” Nissan left unchanged its global vehicle sales forecast for the fiscal year at 5.08 million vehicles, up 5 percent from the previous year, when Japanese automakers were hurt by parts supply disruptions

caused by the earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan. Other Japanese automakers have also reported upbeat quarterly results, helped by the yen. Toyota raised its fiscal year profit forecast after reporting its October December profit jumped 23

percent to 99.91 billion yen ($1.09 billion). Toyota is now expecting annual profit of 860 billion yen ($9.3 billion). It had initially expected a 780 billion yen ($8.5 billion) profit for the fiscal year ending March. Earlier this week, Mazda Motor Corp. raised its annual profit forecast to 26

billion yen ($278 million) from 10 billion yen ($107 million). Tokyo-based Honda Motor Co.’s quarterly profit surged nearly 63 percent to 77.4 billion yen ($850 million), but it lowered its fullyear profit forecast slightly because of sales losses in China.

Dell’s $24.4B deal opposed by major stockholder McDonald’s sales fall with tough year ahead

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dell Inc.’s decision to sell itself for $24.4 billion to a group led by its founder and CEO is being ridiculed as a rotten deal by a major shareholder who estimates the slumping personal computer maker is really worth more $42 billion. The missive launched Friday by Southeastern Asset Management Inc. threatens to complicate Dell Inc.’s efforts to end its 25-year history as a public company. In a letter to Dell’s board of directors, Southeastern CEO O. Mason Hawkins threatened to lead a shareholder mutiny unless the company came up with an alternative to the deal announced earlier this week. Hawkins vowed to wield Southeastern’s 8.5 percent stake to thwart the deal currently on the table. Only Michael Dell, the company’s eponymous founder and CEO, owns more stock with a roughly 14 percent stake. Under Dell’s proposal, Southeastern and other stockholders will be paid $13.65 per share to leave the company in control of Michael Dell, who founded the business in his University of Texas dorm room in 1984. Michael Dell is contributing about $4.5 billion in stock and cash to help pay for the deal. The rest of the money would be supplied by the investment firm Silver Lake, loans from Microsoft Corp. and a litany of banks. The loans will burden Dell with debts that could leave the company with less money to invest in innovation and acquisitions. Hawkins derided the price of the proposed sale as “woefully inadequate” and laid out a scenario that values Dell at $23.72 per share, or about $42 billion. The per -share

amount mirrors Dell’s stock price six years ago, when Michael Dell returned for a second go-round as the company’s CEO. A Dell spokesman declined to comment Friday. The company, based in Round Rock, Texas, has previously said that Michael Dell recused himself from all discussions about the proposed deal to take the company private. The board has also said it explored a wide range of alternatives before agreeing to sell the company for $24.4 billion — a price 80 percent below Dell’s top market value of more than $150 billion at the peak of the dot-com boom 13 years ago. Anticipating possible second-guessing, the board is allowing 45 days for other potential bidders to emerge. Hawkins is worried other suitors will be discouraged from bidding because Michael Dell already has lined up a deal to buy the company for what Southeastern believes to be a steep discount. The transaction that Michael Dell and Silver Lake negotiated “clearly represents an opportunistically timed bid to take the company private at a valuation far below Dell’s intrinsic value, and deprives public shareholders of the ability to participate in the company’s substantial future value creation,” Hawkins wrote. Michael Dell and Silver Lake contend the company will be in a better position to overhaul its operations as a privately held company. That’s because Dell would be able to make dramatic changes without having to worry about Wall Street’s fixation on whether earnings and revenue are growing from one quarter to the next. The proposed sale at $13.65 per share is 25 percent above where

Dell’s stock stood last month, before word of the buyout negotiations leaked out in the media. Dell’s stock has plunged during the past year as PC sales have slumped amid the technological upheaval caused by the growing popularity of smartphones and tablet computers. Dell’s shares rose 10 cents Friday to close at $13.63. Michael Dell has been trying to wean his company from PCs by expanding sales of technology consulting services, business software and higher-end computers. As part of that process, Hawkins pointed out that Dell has spent $13.7 billion, or the equivalent of $7.58 per share, on acquisitions since Michael Dell returned as the company’s CEO in January 2007. Dell hasn’t taken any charges to reflect that the acquisitions have diminished in value. In his letter Hawkins laid out his rationale for valuing the company’s PC business at $2.78 per share and other product lines at a combined $13.36 per share. Instead of sticking with the current deal, Dell’s board should consider an alternative that would give existing shareholders a stake in a restructured company that would still be led by Michael Dell, Hawkins wrote. Messages left with Southeastern for comment weren’t immediately returned. The 38-year -old fir m, which is based in Memphis, Tenn., manages about $33 billion in assets. In a regulatory filing Friday, Southeastern said it had spent about $2.28 billion to accumulate more than 147 million shares of Dell. That means Southeastern would lose about $270 million on its Dell holdings if the company is sold at $13.65 per share.

DALLAS (AP) — US Airways pilots have overwhelmingly approved an agreement that would result in pay raises if their company merges with American Airlines. Union president Gary Hummel said Friday that the agreement would give pilots $1.6 billion in considerations over six years. American parent AMR Corp. and US Airways Group Inc. are in advanced negotiations on a merger with an announcement possible early next week, according to people familiar

with the private talks. The US Airline Pilots Association said 75 percent of its members favored the “memorandum of agreement” that details how they would be treated if a merger takes place. The Allied Pilots Association, or APA, at American had already approved a similar agreement. Hummel said ratification of the memorandum insures that US Airways pilots — who are paid less than those at American — “will arrive at the merger as equal partners with APA in pay, benefits and working conditions.”

The deal provides for US Airways pilots to be paid the same as American Airlines pilots and to get an increase in retirement contributions. A captain of an Airbus A330 jet, for example, could see top-scale pay nearly double, to about $300,000 in 2018. First officers, or co-pilots, earn less.


For the most part, pilots from each airline would continue to fly that carrier’s current planes and planes on order after the merger.

NEW YORK (AP) — McDonald’s says a key sales figure dropped again in January as the world’s biggest hamburger chain struggled to grow in the U.S. and saw a severe decline in Asia. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company said global sales at restaurants open at least 13 months dropped 1.9 percent for the month. The figure is a key metric because it strips out the volatility of newly opened and closed locations. After years of outperforming rivals, McDonald’s has been struggling amid intensifying competition and challenging economic conditions around the world. Late last year, the company ousted the head of its U.S. business after the sales figure dropped for the first time in nearly a decade. CEO Don Thompson, who took the top spot this summer, has vowed to add business by emphasizing value while planning a series of new limited-time offers to attract customers. But Thompson also warned last month that sales were trending negative for January. The company was also up against a tough comparison from a year ago, when global sales rose 6.7 percent. In the region encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa, McDonald’s said its sales sank 9.5 percent in January. The company is facing particular difficulty in Japan, where it says customers have been eating at home more often since the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. It also recently shifted its marketing strategy to focus on staples like the Big Mac and breakfast, rather than promotional items such as the “Big America Series” from a year ago. The sales figure fell 17 percent as a result. In China, the company said the timing of Chinese New Year hurt results. But another factor was the ongoing wariness among diners after reports on Chinese television that chicken producers were ignoring regulators and giving birds unapproved levels of antibiotics. Yum Brands, which owns KFC and is the biggest Wester n chain the country, has been slammed by the reports and expects its sales in the country to plummet by 25 percent in the first quarter. In Europe, McDonald’s biggest market, sales fell 2.1 percent as Germany and France dragged down results. The company said it remains focused on enhanced value and keeping stores open longer in the region. In the U.S., McDonald’s said the figure edged up 0.9 percent. The addition of the Grilled Onion Cheddar burger to the Dollar Menu boosted results. For February, McDonald’s noted sales will be hurt by about 3 percentage points since the previous year’s results included an extra day because of the leap year. The monthly sales figures are a snapshot of money spent on food at both company-owned and franchised restaurants and do not reflect corporate revenue. McDonald’s shares rose 24 cents to close at $94.87 Friday.

I would like to urge your readers this year to include those who are alone through divorce or widowhood in their celebration of this day. Make it a day on which they too can feel special, loved, and a part of things rather than isolated, forgotten and alone. And don’t stop there. All holidays can be lonely for those who have lost loved ones. Include these people in your holiday plans. You will be blessed by sharing, and they will be uplifted to know someone cares. SOLO IN TEXAS


DEAR ABBY: Valentine’s Day is approaching, and I wanted to write concerning those of us who are single by choice, by circumstance, because of the death of a spouse or divorce. This holiday was set aside to celebrate love and lovers, but it can be a lonely time for people who find themselves without a significant other. Valentine’s Day is so commercialized that one is bombarded by ads for gifts, candy, etc., from every angle, which only enforces one’s aloneness. The message is subtly sent — but received loud and clear — that an individual without a partner is worthless.

DEAR SOLO: Thank you for your letter. Readers, if you’re feeling down because you don’t have a special valentine, the surest cure for the blues is to do something for someone else. Call someone who’s alone to say, “I’m thinking about you.” If you know someone who’s in a nursing home, take some flowers. Put your discarded items in a box and call your favorite charity. Donate some blood. Listen to your teenager. Tell your parents you think they’re great. Forgive an enemy. Send a donation to a food program that ben-


efits the needy. And if you love someone, tell him or her NOW; please don’t wait until next Valentine’s Day to be a sweetheart again. #####

DEAR ABBY: I have had an embarrassing problem ever since grammar school. I bite my nails and cuticles until they bleed. If the pain is severe, or I see a piece of cuticle hanging, I stop until it heals. But then I start up again. How can quit this ugly habit? MANIC IN GRANDVIEW, MO.

DEAR MANIC: You have a problem that I’m told is shared by one in 12 adults. There is more than one solution for it, and the common denominator in all of them is MOTIVATION. Some helpful suggestions submitted by readers in years past: (1) “What helped me to finally stop at age 45 was that I sat down and tried to figure out why I kept biting my nails. I finally realized it was because I couldn’t stand the feel of a rough nail catching on the fabric of my clothing.

“Now I keep emery boards, from coarse to fine, beside my favorite chair, in my purse, in my glove compartment and by my bed. If I feel a snag, I immediately smooth the offending nail. It has eliminated my need to bite.”

(2) “My high school teacher included some interesting lessons in personal hygiene in his biology class. One day, he asked us to scrape under our fingernails and look at what we removed under a microscope. Seeing face to face what had collected under there was enough to stop me from biting my nails. I haven’t chewed them in nearly 30 years.”

(3) “What stopped me was a job I landed as a teenager. I became an usher at a movie theater. My job required wearing a uniform, including white gloves. Not long after I landed the job, I noticed I had nice nails. The gloves were what did it.”

(4) “Finally, when I was in my 30s, I asked my doctor to suggest a cure. He talked to me about obsessive-compulsive disorder and prescribed a low dose of a very safe drug used by people with O.C.D. In three weeks my nail-biting stopped for good.”

Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about donating used items: “While helping my mom pack hygiene bags for the homeless and disadvantaged, I noticed that some people donated products from hotel stays. While this is a kind gesture, the majority of the containers were either empty or contained literally just drops of product! “I was horrified and sick to my stomach, and wondered how many people received empty bottles, as the packers had no clue that the tiny bottles were empty. “Please ask your helpful readers to not donate empty or next-to-empty bottles! — Paula, via email” Paula, you are right, and thank you for reminding my readers. Readers, please donate GOOD goods! Half-used of anything is of no use and wastes the volunteer’s time. — Heloise ##### SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O.

Dear Heloise: Uses for a half-gone bag of chips: * As a topping for salads and soups. * On a sandwich for crunchiness. * Coat vegetables with the crumbs, then fry. * Top casseroles and other dishes with them. Margarette in Texas Dear Heloise: Can you please reprint your recipe for jewelry cleaner? I have used it once and was very happy with the results, but now I can’t find my copy. Thank you. A Reader, via email

I sure can! This Heloise homemade jewelry cleaner works well and costs just pennies to make. Just mix equal parts ammonia and water. Soak jewelry for a few minutes, and use an old toothbrush to GENTLY remove any built-up dirt. Rinse jewelry with warm water. Be sure to put something over the drain so you do not lose your pieces! This cleaner recipe is only for real GOLD and DIAMOND jewelry. DO NOT use with opal, pearl, turquoise, coral, malachite, amber, lapis lazuli, jade or any other soft or porous stone. Save leftover cleaner in a clearly labeled jar. You can reuse it until the mixture turns cloudy. But since it’s so cheap, after a few times, pour it in the kitchen sink and scrub with a brush, and any grease and grime will disappear. Heloise ##### Dear Heloise: When removing a heat-sealed lid (as in canning jars), just insert a metal edge (dull side of any knife or coin) into the thinnest slot between the lid and the first screw bump, and twist. You won’t damage the lid, it can be used again for short fridge storage (ONLY — Heloise), or you can put it on the jar upside down, put the screw ring on and store the jar with no dust getting in the jar. Make sure the jar is dry first. And DO NOT use the lid a second time for canning, because the seal has been compromised. Gail in San Antonio

Fugitive’s rant puts focus on evolving LAPD legacy

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner’s claim in an online “manifesto” that his career was undone by racist colleagues conspiring against him comes at a time when it’s widely held that the police department has evolved well beyond the troubled racial legacy of Rodney King and the O.J. Simpson trial. Dorner, who is suspected in a string of vengeance killings, has depicted himself as a black man wronged, whose badge was unjustly taken in 2008 after he lodged a complaint against a white female supervisor. “It is clear as day that the department retaliated toward me,” Dorner said in online writings authorities have attributed to him. Racism and officer abuses, he argued, have not improved at LAPD since the King beating but have “gotten See LEGACY Page B8

worse.” Dorner’s problems at the LAPD, which ended with his dismissal, played out without public notice more than four years ago, as the department gradually emerged from federal oversight following a corruption scandal. At the time, the officer ranks were growing more diverse and then-Chief William Bratton was working hard to mend relations with long-skeptical minorities. “This is no longer your father’s LAPD,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa declared in 2009, after the federal clampdown was ended. Civil rights attorney Connie Rice said the department should review the Dorner case and his claims, while stressing that she is not defending the suspect in any way and is shocked by the attacks. She said the 10,000-member force headquartered in a glass-walled high-rise in downtown Los Angeles has entered a new era. “The open racism of the days before is gone,” said Rice, who closely tracks racial issues inside the department and has faced off against the LAPD in court. “The overall culture has improved enormously.” Police say Dorner shot and killed a couple in a parking garage last weekend in Irvine, the beginning of a rampage he said was retribution for his mistreatment at LAPD. A search for him continued Saturday, centered on the mountain town of Big Bear Lake, where his burned-out pickup truck was found Thursday. The woman who died was the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his dismissal. Hours after authorities identified Dorner as a suspect in the double murder, police believe he shot and grazed an LAPD officer and later used a rifle to ambush two Riverside police officers, killing one and seriously wounding the other. “This is a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD,” Dorner wrote in a 14-page online manifesto. On Friday, a community

Daddy and and mother were blessed with four children; daughter Nancy and her husband Glen Holloway, of Alba, Texas, sons James Lay, JR., of Dexter, Connie and wife Cindy Lay, of Tahlequah, Okla., and Gilbert Lay, of Tyler, Texas. Daddy had eight grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and three great- greatgrandchildren; many, many, nephews and nieces that will greatly miss him. Daddy served in the US Ar my during WWII, in Japan. He worked on the farm for Bill Bogle in Dexter, then moved to the East Grand Plains farm. Daddy

of online sympathizers formed, echoing complaints against police that linger in some communities. One Facebook page supporting Dorner, which had over 2,300 fans by Friday evening, said “this is not a page about supporting the killing of innocent people. It’s supporting fighting back against corrupt cops and bringing to light what they do.” The LAPD was once synonymous with violent and bigoted officers, whose culture and brand of street justice was depicted by Hollywood in films like “L.A. Confidential” and “Training Day.” In 1965, 34 people died when the Watts riots, triggered by a traffic stop of a black man by a white California Highway Patrol officer, exposed deep fractures between blacks and an overwhelmingly white law enforcement community. In the 1980s, gang sweeps took thousands of youths into custody. The O.J. Simpson trial deepened skepticism of a department already tarnished by the videotaped beating of King, the black motorist who was hit with batons, kicked repeatedly and jolted with stun guns by officers who chased him for speeding. Rioting after a jury with no black members acquitted three of the LAPD officers on state charges and a mistrial was declared for a fourth lasted three days, killing 55 people. In the Rampart scandal of the late 1990s, scores of criminal convictions were thrown out after members of an anti-gang unit were accused of beating and framing residents in a poor, largely minority neighborhood. A handful of officers were convicted of various crimes and the scandal led to federal oversight that lasted eight years. Much has changed: Whites now make up roughly a third of the department and, while under federal authority, LAPD moved to require anti-gang and narcotics officers to disclose their finances and worked on new tools to track officer conduct. When Bratton announced in 2009 he was stepping down, he said he hoped his legacy would be improved race relations. “I believe we have turned a corner in that issue,” he said.

Roswell Daily Record


With a car giveaway, a costume contest, live music and information on topics affecting people of all ages, the organizer of the annual Baby Boomer Conference & Business Expo admits the event has developed a “life of its own.” The Baby Boomer expo offers something fun but also something useful, whether you remember the 1960s or not. Presented by Frontier Medical—a home health agency—the fourth annual expo is set to take place at the Roswell Convention Center, 912 N. Main St., on Saturday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. A true business expo that attracts vendors from various parts of New Mexico, event coordinator and director of marketing for Frontier Medical Barbara Gomez said the event is free and for people of all ages. The allusion to the Baby Boomer generation— people born in the U.S. between 1946 and 1964—is simply the event’s theme. The nod to the generation that embraced the mantra “make peace, not war” and who, with comfortable economic security, helped propel the music of legends like Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin; adds a fun twist to the event that was always meant to be both educational and entertaining. “We grew up in a different (era),” Gomez said of the Baby Boomer generation. “All the freedoms that we knew, (younger generations) don’t know.” Gomez remembered a time when parents were not so fearful for their children; when penny candy provided a cheap but satisfying sugar fix and when there were only a few channels to choose from on black-and-white televisions. Gomez added that the Baby Boomers grew up in a time when devotion to family, country and doing what is right was deeply inculcated in peoples’ minds. Baby Boomers continue to have this sense of devotion, she said, and it is passed on to how they care for their aging parents, their children and even their grandchildren. “I think that’s the core of our nation,” Gomez said. “Boomers care for those who are older and those who are younger.” This desire to look out for people of all ages extends to the expo that pays homage to the Baby Boomer generation. The expo will offer close to 80 booths that will include information, products and of course giveaways on a variety of items. Representatives from hotels, the Spencer Theater for the Performing Arts, the Billy the Kid Casino, restaurants, funeral homes, chiropractors and many more will be on-hand. Nonprofits will give information about their organizations in the RCC lobby. There will be a variety of entertainment; including dances from the Studio + and the RAC-a-Taps; and music by Vinnie Baggatone and the BaggaVaughns. Even Elvis will make an appearance. The Baby Boomer expo is such a fantastic affair that attendees vie for best-costume prizes by dressing up as such icons as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and why not, home-grown Roswell aliens. “Everyone tries to outdo one another,” Gomez said with a hint of mischief. “There’s going to be all kinds of stuff.” This year’s Baby Boomer expo will include community notables such as attorney Tom Dunlap, who will give a presentation on legal issues. Richard Lucero of the Neighborhood Watch Program and members of the Roswell Police Department will give a presentation on identifying scams and fraud. There will also be a presentation on all things Medicare. Perhaps one of the biggest highlights of the event will be a car giveaway. For just $10, an adult over the age of 18 will be entered into a drawing to win a brand new Toyota iQ. The car drawing is a result of Gomez’ partnership with Roswell Toyota—which has been an integral part of the Baby Boomer expo since the event first took off in 2010. Prizes are given throughout the day at the event, but the winner of the Toyota iQ must be present to actually get the car. The drawing for the Toyota iQ is set to take place the day of the event at 5:30 p.m. Gomez has always included a car giveaway as part of the expo. And, she has always ensured that the proceeds go toward a charity. This year, the proceeds will benefit Puerta Abierta Homeless Clinic. Once a month, Puerta Abierta helps those who are homeless or those who do not have medical insurance by giving them free medical care. “They need everything, from hospital beds, to equipment, to supplies,” Gomez said. The Baby Boomer expo itself started out as a community project. Not long after she was hired at Frontier Medical in 2009, Gomez was asked to organize an event that would be of service but also be “something big.” With little direction but with full reign, Gomez put together the first Baby Boomer expo in 2010, and, to her surprise, the event hosted about 60 booths. The Civic Center was packed—and the inquiries into making the event an annual shindig began pouring in. “I created (the expo) the first year as a one-hit-wonder,” Gomez said. “It just had a life of its own.” For more infor mation about the Baby Boomer Conference & Business Expo, visit, email, or call 627-1112.

Romance wife with regular dates—not just on Valentine’s Q: I want to do something special for my wife for Valentine’s Day beyond the usual dinner and flowers, but I’m at a loss. Do you have any ideas? Jim: Don’t underestimate the power of dinner and flowers! Many wives would love to be shown that much attention on Valentine’s Day. Just be sure that she knows your gift comes from the heart, and is not just a holiday obligation. You also might consider turning a Valentine’s Day date into the gift that keeps on giving. Focus on the Family’s resident marriage expert, Dr. Greg Smalley (a frequent contributor to this column), has cited a wealth of research showing that married couples who engage in regular date nights enjoy a stronger bond. Maybe this year, Valentine’s Day could signal the start of a commitment to begin intentionally dating your wife on a regular basis.

Certainly, with careers, kids and other obligations, it can be tough to find the time for regular date nights. But the benefits of making it happen are well documented. Many couples have committed to going on a date at least once a month for a year. I’m guessing a commitment of this nature is a present your wife would appreciate even more than chocolates or flowers. For more information, go to Q: My husband and I both used drugs before we were married. We were able to conquer our habit together several years ago. Recently, he confessed that he has been using recreational drugs on occasion to deal with stress and depression. Because he has kept this from me and because he is using again, it has put a huge strain on our marriage. I am becoming very angry and don’t know how to help my husband or deal with my emo-

You’ve got more space than you think

Information on creating new space in a garage, providing a Feng Shui atmosphere in the home, and hanging pictures correctly will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. and on Thursday at noon. Many folks are looking for more room in their homes, and Bruce Johnson is going to show how to repurpose the garage and utilize a great new space. Johnson is the spokesperson for Minwax in Upper Saddle River, N.J., and he has several creative solutions for finding more living space. PartyLite consultant Christine Alt will show how to bring indoor décor outside and explain how using candles can help create a Feng Shui atmosphere. PartyLite is headquartered in Plymouth, Mass. Interior decorator, Latriece Brooks is going to show how to ensure that you hang pictures at eye-level, and she’ll discuss the various tools that make picture hanging much easier. Brooks owns Brooks Interior in Clovis. Information on machine embroidery and making watercolor pleats will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday at 12 p.m. and on Saturday at 2 p.m. Roberta Amundson will demonstrate how to add beautiful and fun embroidery to almost anything as well as create your own machine embroidery designs. Her company is Roberta’s Creations and she’s from Oceanside, Calif. Rebecca Harger is with REBAH Publishing in Noblesville, Ind., and she will show how to cut, mark, pleat and join panels of fabric using the Pleated Rail Fence method for quilting. The results form watercolor pleats, which can be added to jackets, home décor items or quilts.

Repurpose Your Garage

Many people are looking for more room in their own homes, but are unable to find room in their budget for a huge home renovation. There are lots of ways to look to the garage as a creative solution for finding more living space. Since the foundation and walls already exist, a few of the huge renovation expenses of remodeling are eliminated. After the garage space is converted into living space, be sure to add warm elements to bring a cozy, family feel to the room. One way to do this is using wainscoting on the walls and crown molding at the ceiling to add depth and character to the room. Since lack of storage space is always an issue in homes, you might like to consider using wood cubes to help out. These are a typical and inexpensive flea market find and can be easily cleaned up and brought back to like to create the look of built-in storage in your new garage room or any room in your home. “Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.



tions. What should we do? Dr. Greg Smalley, executive director of Marriage and Family Formation: We’re sorry to learn of your husband’s relapse. Obviously, there are two critical factors to consider here: 1) the drug use itself and 2) the damage his behavior has done to your marital relationship. When it comes to the drug use, your husband needs to enroll in a treatment program immediately. I take it as a good sign that he confessed his behavior to you, rather than you “catching him in the act. “ This suggests that he feels


Roswell Daily Record

remorse for his decisions and, hopefully, wants to seek help. We would recommend a comprehensive treatment program called Thriving: Recover Your Life ( It’s also critical that you and your husband work together to address the fallout in your marriage as a result of broken trust. All too often, once a problem is exposed and the negative activity has been brought to a halt— whether it be drug use, adultery, gambling or something else— many people tell themselves that all is well. But in reality, very little healing can occur unless the root issues behind your husband’s drug use are found and treated. A paradigm shift has to take place at the heart of your marriage. Without that shift, you can become hopelessly trapped in an ongoing pattern of grief, anger or depression. Here again, it’s important that you and your husband enlist out-

Bald eagles thriving in South Dakota habitat Roswell Daily Record

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — It’s not uncommon for raptors to roam the shores of the Missouri River, but only during the winter months can Pierre area residents enjoy viewing the iconic bird of prey known as the bald eagle. Each year eagles descend upon the cottonwood trees to perch along the river. While central South Dakota may not be their final destination, it serves quite well as a prolonged pit stop. Bald eagles enjoy wintering in South Dakota, but they didn’t always nest here, said Eileen Dowd Stukel, a wildlife diversity coordinator for South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks. South Dakota’s first successful bald eagle nest in more than a century was located in the Karl E. Mundt National Wildlife Refuge on the Missouri River near Pickstown and documented in 1993 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Dowd Stukel said that historically, bald eagles have been present in South Dakota, but there were many years when they didn’t nest here. “Since 1993, bald eagle nests have gone from just one nest that we knew of to over 100 nests now,” Dowd Stukel told the Capital Jour-

lected, a state biologist produces a map of the known nests. In 2012, 128 active nests which produced 177 fledglings were counted across South Dakota.

Every few years, Game, Fish and Parks flies a biologist over areas without volunteers or road access to obtain more accurate bald eagle nesting numbers. The department has also been conducting an aerial midwinter bald eagle survey every year since 1986. Wintering along the Missouri In the Pierre area, eagles often begin arriving in October and are at their peak November population through February. While some eagles may stay through March, most usually disperse in late February to go nest elsewhere in South Dakota. Even though there aren’t many active nests in the Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, the location is a very popular roosting site, said Pat Buscher, Oahe Downstream district supervisor. A winter roost site often consists of large trees near a river or valley that provides hunting, and protection from cold winds and human disturbance. Oahe Downstream, and other areas such as Fort Randall and Gavin’s Point Dam, are favorite roosting sites because of the habitat, food and protection they provide along the river.
