SANTA FE (AP) — A proposal to shore up a pension program for public school employees and higher education workers in New Mexico cleared the House on Saturday, but there’s a disagreement among lawmakers and unions over what should be done to ensure the retirement system remains solvent for decades to come. The bill passed by the

Southeast Area Operations Division of New Mexico Game and Fish successfully trapped eight pronghorn antelope in Roswell, Thursday. They have received some protests; however, the program protects the species. “With this particular herd, the issue is safety. When they put up the relief road and the sheep wire, the animals had no means to leave the area, and we still haven’t figured out where they are getting water,” said Mark Madsen, public information and outreach officer. The captured animals were driven to the net site when officials discovered some of them along the Relief Route. “The goal is to

Sheriff Rob Coon recalls horror of 1980 Santa Fe Prison riot JESSICA PALMER RECORD STAFF WRITER

Feb. 2 marked the anniversary of the Santa Fe Prison riot. Chaves County Sheriff Rob Coon is one of two New Mexico State Police officers who participated in quelling the riots who are still working in law enforcement. He was based out of Alamogordo at the time and was willing to relate his experiences. The narrative is a stark recital of one of the darker moments in New Mexico history. “It all started Saturday morning on Feb. 2 (1980). I was working an accident, when I received a call to come back to Alamogordo. My commander told us to report to the state penitentiary in Santa Fe. We all met as a Tactical (SWAT) team at the pen ASAP. I loaded all my equipment and made it there around 2 p.m. My SWAT team was made up of two commanders and 20 officers. We all got to Santa Fe within an hour of each other. “About 35 miles out of Santa Fe, you could see black billowing smoke of the penitentiary. We met at the main gate and watched them bring out the dead bodies. Most of the guards got out, but three were still inside; two were unaccounted for. One came out, and we negotiated with the pris-

oners to get the other two guards. “Around one on Sunday, we got the orders to go in. A lot of the prisoners had not come out. Many had broken into the infirmary. A lot passed out and a lot were stoned. We went to the main control and found the bulletproof window, which had just been installed, was broken out. They used mops, buckets and fire extinguishers. We passed through the four-foot hole they had made in the glass, and ran into the first dead inmate. “Once they got in through the glass, they had direct access to every door in the facility. My team went to the south wings of prison, and the other team went to the north wings of the prison. We had a lot of cell blocks to cover. We made it into the gymnasium, which was on fire where the roof had collapsed. A lot of the injured, those who could walk, made their way through the carnage out of the building. “We were supposed to tag the instruments that had been used to make weapons. The prison administration told us that we could use lethal force with any inmate who threatened us. We searched for hours (looking for the two guards) and See RIOT, Page A3

When not faced by an emergency situation with animals on the road, local Game and Fish use a more passive means of capture. “We usually use a drop net here. We bait the site with produce provided by local grocery stores. The net is on remote control. Once the animals come to feed, the net is dropped,” he said. It is a more hands-on approach than is used in other parts of the state where they use helicopters to drive the pronghorn into a net. The reason for the dif ference is the land around Roswell is flat and

much more open. Attempts to drive the antelope with helicopters would be more likely to cause them to disperse.

Another problem facing the local herd that cannot escape the area is inbreeding. “It’s never good to have brothers mating with sisters. We want to increase the genetic diversity for a number of reasons. Number one, is to increase their resistance to disease. Two, is to increase the vigor of the herd. The third is to decrease the possibility of genetic diseases caused by inbreeding,” Madsen said. The lack of genetic diversity is a problem that faces other species and other populations in the state. In See PRONGHORN, Page A3

Lovato Memorial Golf Tournament set for March 17 VANESSA KAHIN RECORD STAFF WRITER An upcoming golf tournament will help a memorial scholarship acquire what it needs most — the funds necessary to help future emergency medical technicians and paramedics. The AMR-Steve Lovato Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament will be held at the New Mexico Military Institute Golf Course March 17. This is the first fundraising effort for the scholarship fund. The scholarship was established in 2002, when Lovato, an EMT, passed away. Part of the Community Foundation of Chaves County, the endowment fund remained dormant until 2011. This is when Lovato’s family began searching for ways to honor his memory, as well as mark the 10th anniversary of his death on March 16, 2002. “It honors our son’s memory,” said Steve Lovato’s father, Lawrence Lovato. Steve Lovato’s mother, Rosie, echoed the desire to help future first responders. “Not everyone can be an EMT or a paramedic,”

Rosie Lovato said. “It’s a calling. If we can give back to the community, it’s a blessing all the way.” Susie Russell, executive director of the Community Foundation of Chaves County, said the goal of the tournament is to build the endowment for the scholarship. Russell is also on the committee for the golf tournament. The scholarship, which is being offered by Lovato’s family and the foundation, will benefit those who want to study to be an EMT or a paramedic. Applications for the scholarship are being accepted now. The deadline to apply is March 1. Two scholarship recipients will be announced and given a $750 award each the day of the golf tournament. Russell said that after the two scholarships are awarded, the remaining funds raised by the tournament will go into the permanent endowment. She noted that the endowment is perpetual. “That initial money is never touched.” It is only the earnings of the initial sum that will be used for future scholarships. The tournament is free

to attend. To play, the entry fee is $60 per person, or $180 for a threemember team. Those who want to help the scholarship fund may also sponsor a team so that members of the Roswell Police Department, Roswell Fire Department, and local EMTs can participate. The Lovatos said they have already received several donations and a welcoming response from the community. “It’s wonderful the way things are coming into place,” said Rosie Lovato. “It’s a blessing. Naturally, we give thanks to the community. But, we also give thanks to God.” Former Roswell Mayor Bill Owen, who is also on the tournament committee, said the way the game will be played is unlike any other golfing match in which he has participated. Most golf tournaments, Owen said, involve four golfers on each team. Only one person on each team can be an extraordinarily good golfer — with a handicap at 10 or below. This is done so that no single team can be made up of four good players. The memorial scholarship golf tournament, on

the other hand, will feature teams of three players in two separate games. There will be a “show me the money” flight in which teams of three — with no limit on low handicaps — play against each other. There will also be a “B” flight in which only one member can have a handicap of nine or less. The total handicap for all three members of a team during the “B flight” must be more than 30. “I’ve played golf my whole life,” Owen said. “I’ve never (seen) this format used.” He said he hoped the “show me the money” flight provides a competitive edge for experienced golfers, and that the tour nament gives a fair shot for golfers at varying degrees of expertise. The golf tournament is limited to the first 30 teams or 90 entrants. Russell said merchants may also choose to sponsor holes for $500. In return, the hole sponsor gets a hole sign, a sponsor board and event publicity. Breakfast and registration begins at 7 a.m. on March 17, with the game beginning at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will

Obama urges extension of payroll tax cut

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is calling on Congress to extend a payroll tax cut for the remainder of the year as another deadline nears for Congress to act or see taxes go up for millions of working Americans. Lawmakers agreed back in December, after much bickering, on a two-month extension, but that runs out at the end of this month. Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday that Congress “needs to stop this middle-class tax hike from happening. Period. No drama. No delay.” Obama said that the economic recovery, which has been ticking upward, must not be jeopardized by a failure to act to stop payroll


taxes from going up, and he urged listeners to add their voices. “I hope you’ll pick up the phone, send a tweet, write an email, and tell your representative that they should get this done before it gets too late. Tell them not to play politics again by linking this debate to unrelated issues. Tell them not to manufacture another needless standoff or crisis,” Obama said. “Tell them not to stand in the way of the recovery. Tell them to just do their job. That’s what our middle class needs. That’s what our country needs.” Lawmakers have made halting progress on legislation to extend the tax cut. The bill also would renew jobless benefits for the

long-term unemployed and prevent doctors from being whacked by a 27 percent cut in their Medicare payments, but the package costs $150 billion-plus and lawmakers will have to find a way to pay for it. The 2 percentage point cut in Social Security taxes is worth about $1,000 per year for the average family, or $40 per paycheck. In the Republican radio address, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell applauded efforts by Republican governors across the country to contain gover nment spending and reduce their state budget deficits. Speaking ahead of Obama’s release of his own 2013 budget, McDonnell said the federal budget will impede job creation by calling for

tax increases and for continuing the administration’s health care policies.

Obama’s budget, to be unveiled Monday, would allow Bush-era tax cuts for people in the upper brackets to expire. It also is expected to call for the elimination of corporate tax loopholes while calling for lower corporate tax rates. McDonnell said Republicans can help create an environment that creates and sustains private sector jobs.

“We know that when we limit government to free up capital, and reduce onerous regulations and litigation, we spur private sector job creation.”

Owen, who was mayor of Roswell when Steve Lovato died, said the tragedy that took Lovato’s life was a tragedy for Roswell. He commended Rosie and Lawrence Lovato for creating the golf tournament to help others face the initial expense of becoming an EMT or a paramedic.

“The Lovatos are just wonder ful, remarkable people,” Owen said.

Thirty-three inmates were killed. They had been brutalized with cutting torches; one person was decapitated. We were still looking for the two guards. Only three rooms had been untouched — Catholic Chapel, the Law Library and the gas chamber. When we finally made it to the gas chamber we found the two missing guards. They had been hiding there for two days. “They (the guards) were working with a skeleton crew that night. I think the guards had gotten wind of what was going to happen.

If nothing is done by the Legislature to change the program, ERB is estimated to have 63 percent of the funds needed to meet pension obligations in the future. The industry standard is 80 percent, and that level will be reached by 2030 under the changes in the Senate proposal. Stewart said it’s unclear how much long-term finances will improve under the House-passed measure. A decade ago, the educational pension’s “funded ratio” — the proportion of

After we cleared the field, we found the pipe wrenches and the tools they used to defend themselves. “One of the big problems we had there, was that all the records were destroyed. Not just records, but all inmate personal records from the courts were burnt. They had to bring in the Federal Bureau of Prisons to identify them. The U.S. Bureau of Prisons fingerprinted, took mug shots and classified each inmate. We needed to contact the various DAs to find out what their crime was, their sentences were and how many years they had served. “We had no place to house them.

Currently, most educators can retire with full benefits at any age after working for 25 years or if they meet a so-called “rule of 75,” in which the number of years of service and the person’s age at retirement equal or exceed 75, although benefits are reduced if a person retires younger than 60. Several years ago, the state made retirement eligibility changes to try to improve pension fund finances. For educators hired since July 2010, the minimum work requirement is 30 years, or they can retire with no reduction in benefits if they meet a “rule of 80” — where

the past, the Roswell herd was used to reseed areas across the state, which used to be historic pronghor n ranges. Madsen cited four different locations farther north that have herds started from local stock. The pronghorn are also used in an exchange program with Mexico. “The pronghorn were extirpated in Mexico. Groups in private business and government are very interested in bringing them back,” Madsen said. He considers the pronghorn antelope a valuable American species. “Pronghorns are not a true anteprisons throughout the states. ... Many were there for three lifetime sentences. They were sent to Leavenworth. Right next to the prison was the women’s prison. They had 12 inmates. They were moved, and we stayed in their prison. I stayed there a total of 18 days. The National Guard played an important role, but they never went inside, only the State Police.

“The riot was the worst in the U.S. in ter ms of destruction. I think there were $30 million in damages. More prisoners were killed in Attica, but that was by the guards, not the prisoners preying upon prisoners like we had here. These inmates were planning it. They brewed raisin jack and had a party. There were 1,137 prisoners and only 18 of ficers. When they came in to stop the party, the prisoners jumped them. “I won’t say it didn’t affect me. I was 30 years old.

combined service and age at retirement equal or exceed 80. One of the biggest questions in the pension debate is whether to trim benefits for current workers or revise their retirement eligibility. The Educational Retirement Board late last year recommended a proposed minimum retirement age of 55 for anyone who wasn’t within 10 years of retirement. It also proposed reducing cost-of-living adjustments for current and future retirees. However, the House and Senate ditched those proposals because of objections from educators. Members of the American Federation of Teachers union rallied outside of the

Capitol on Saturday to oppose changes to retirement benefits and eligibility for current workers. Union President Christine Trujillo said most educational employees haven’t seen a pay increase in four years but have been forced to pay more into their pension program. Educators earning more than $20,000 currently pay 11.15 percent of their salaries into their retirement program. The rate is scheduled to drop to 9.4 percent in July and to 7.9 percent in July 2013. That’s because the state temporarily boosted employee payments and reduced the government’s contributions to balance the budget. Those pension swaps will expire, however,

The pronghor n is the only living member of its family in the world. Of the genus Antilocapra, it gets its name because it has attributes of both the antelope and the goat. Unless trapped as the Roswell herd is, pronghor ns have the longest land migration in the continental United States. It is one of the fastest land mammals in the world. It can sprint up to 60 mph.

His reaction now is philosophical. “I knew I was taking part in history. It is part of New Mexico history. It is part of the U.S. history. It changed the way New Mexico treated its prisoners.”

Coon and Chief Deputy Kent Waller received Certificates of Meritorious Service presented by Department of Corrections Cabinet Secretary Gregg Marcantel on Jan. 17.

“We got to tour the facilities. A lot of things have been fixed; a lot of things remain the same. It seemed like it happened just last week. The Duran Decree under which New Mexico now operates, was written on a roll of toilet paper. It changed the way the prison was run. Back then, the guys who were mass murderers were housed with the guys that wrote bad checks. I knew some of these prisoners. Polina Paul lived near me in Alamagordo. He was decaptiated.”

“When the exchange program started years ago, the sheep population bottomed out at 70 animals. By 2009, the number of desert bighorn had increased to 565 as a result of this program. Now the population ranges around 650 and the species was taken off the endangered list,” Madsen said.

Pronghorn numbers are higher — around 30,000 — but there are regions in New Mexico where the population of pronghorn has been virtually wiped out. He said that pronghorn numbers are down elsewhere due to the

Pending in the Senate is a proposal to phase in higher pension contributions, with the rate for workers reaching 11.3 percent in July 2016. Government employer payments are set to reach 10.9 percent in July and rise to 13.9 percent in 2014 under current law.

The Senate proposal will phase in the employer increases over a longer period of time and establish a minimum retirement age of 55 for educators hired after July 1. Future employees also will have to work for eight years — rather than five years currently — to qualify for pension benefits. drought. “The pronghorn herds in the agricultural regions outside of Roswell are doing better than those in the rest of the state because it is farmland and they have access to water.”

Each animal will receive a complete medical checkup before it is shipped elsewhere to be added to herds where it will enhance the genetic diversity of different herds, or start new herds in areas where they have none. The animals will live in areas where they will not be enclosed in an urban environment. “These are not city animals,” said Madsen. They need to be in places where they can roam freely.

House OKs tax credit for hiring veterans

SANTA FE (AP) — The House has approved a bill backed by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez to provide a tax break for businesses that hire veterans who recently left the military. Businesses could get a $1,000 tax credit for hiring a veteran who was discharged in the past two years. Rep. Terry McMillan, R-Las Cruces, said the tax incentive should encourage employers to hire veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The bill unanimously passed the House on Saturday and goes to the Senate for consideration. The Taxation and Revenue Department estimates that the tax credit will cost the state about $1.7 million in reduced tax revenues next year. The federal government offers tax breaks for businesses that hire unemployed veterans.

Metal detectors in our state capitol? A4 Sunday, February 12, 2012

SANTA FE — Soon we may have to go through metal detectors to visit our state capitol. It’s too bad. New Mexico has always prided itself on having a very open capitol. In some states it is necessary to have an appointment to get into the area where legislative offices are located. In New Mexico one can stroll into the capitol and wander through the building, admiring the artwork and visiting legislative offices and committee rooms. Apparently we still could do that under rules suggested by legislators fearful of their security. We’d just have to go through imposing metal detectors first to be checked for handguns and anything else dangerous one might be carrying. The reason for this legislative paranoia is the dubious acts of “occupiers” who disrupted Gov. Susana Martinez’s opening address to the Legislature this year. A few days later, these folks burst into a dinner hosted by a





national conservative organization for Republican legislators. The handful of occupiers did a lot of yelling and distributed fake menus stating some of their grievances with the organization. Evidently they threw some of the menus too because a companion of Rep. Bill Rehm, an Albuquerque Republican lawmaker, was hit in the eye by one. Although the occupiers have caused trouble, they seem more likely to protest gun ownership rather than carry guns themselves. Members of the tea party, on the other hand, are more likely to support gun ownership.

Roswell Daily Record

But although tea partiers sometimes carry guns to rallies in support of their second amendment rights, they do not seem to be any threat to legislators despite their summer of yelling at members of Congress at town meetings in 2010. Thus it seems overly cautious to increase security measures beyond maybe adding a few extra state police at times that might be controversial. The police actually are a friendly presence around the capitol, always pleasant and willing to talk. The capitol, by the way, also has surveillance cameras with monitors in a basement office. But more security seems to be the direction everything is headed. It’s likely every courthouse in the nation has metal detectors at every door. When I arrived in Santa Fe in 1965, the governor had one state policeman assigned to him. For years, it was “Red” Pack, who also chauffeured the

governor wherever he went. Now the gover nor has a corps of police, including those housed in a building next to the governor’s residence. So maybe it is only natural that lawmakers want more security too. In addition to a security detail, Gov. Martinez also has what she calls a tracker who follows her around shooting film of all her public presentations. The president has one of those. He also has a photographer whose latest pictures are posted in a hallway in the White House. Will we be seeing that anytime soon in New Mexico? As of this writing, Lt. Gov. John Sanchez has everyone guessing about his plans for the future. It seems likely he will withdraw from the U.S. Senate race. Filing day is this week, before the Legislature adjourns and he is very busy being president of the Senate. Some are guessing that it is

likely Sanchez will switch to the 1st Congressional District contest. Sanchez says he won’t enter the House race. He would have to put a good amount of time into the switch which would require new nominating petitions. Sanchez never has seemed to put the energy into his Senate race that he put into building his small roofing company into the major business it is now. The explanation can’t be that his job is keeping him too busy. Other than presiding over the Senate, he has only the responsibility to stand in for the governor. That job takes very little time because the governor’s staff handles decision making. Maybe Lt. Gov. Sanchez knows more than we do about Gov. Martinez’s future.

Yes on infrastructure tax

In the upcoming municipal election, Roswell voters will weigh-in on a proposed tax which would represent a tremendous opportunity to spur economic growth in our city. It is our hope that the members of our community will recognize how important this issue is and not be misled by misconceptions regarding how this money would be used. There has been a backlash in recent years to the federal government using tax dollars to benefit large corporations which have mismanaged their resources. Some of these programs have worked. Some have not. Regardless, many people are tired of their tax dollars being spent to bail out private business. While we concur with that sentiment, it is being wrongly applied by some to the proposed Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts Tax being put before Roswell voters. This new tax would not be used to provide loans or other financial incentives to businesses. What this new tax would do is improve municipal facilities and services in an effort to attract new industry to the city and enhance conditions for growth among existing enterprises. Any renovations, upgrades or expansions funded by the tax would all be performed solely on assets owned by the city. Roswell is blessed with a number of resources which can be used to promote the growth of local industry. The most notable of these assets in the Roswell International Air Center. While those facilities are best suited to operations related to the aircraft industry, the hangars and other buildings at the RIAC can also be used for a wide variety of ventures. However, these buildings are well past their prime and in critical need of repairs and upgrades to continue to be useful. So what will this tax cost? To most people, the tax increase would go completely unnoticed. It would raise the gross receipts tax rate in Roswell by .125 percent. That means for every $100 spent there would be an increase of a mere 12.5 cents. Gross receipts tax does not apply to food, prescription medication, fuel or rent/home mortgage payments. It’s a small price to pay to help our city grow. Economic prosperity is important to everyone in our community. A larger, more diverse economy comes with great benefits. Roswell has been hit hard in the past when large employers have shut their doors. To say the loss of Walker Air Force Base was devastating to the city would be a gross understatement. In the private sector, the closure of some big companies sent harmful ripples across Roswell’s economy. Having a wider employment base means the loss of any one company will not deal a serious blow to the city as a whole. A stronger, larger economy also means more places to shop and eat and a greater variety of services. We also envision expansion of important assets such as medical care as our city grows. Roswell’s growth has been stalled for far too long. We had hoped to reach a population of 50,000 for the 2000 Census. We fell short again in 2010, having only grown by just a little more than 3,000 residents in 10 years. Clearly something new needs to be done to get our city back on the path toward prosperity. The Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts Tax represents an investment in the future of our city. It’s a means to build a foundation of growth that will improve the quality of life for residents of Roswell today, and for future generations. The Daily Record supports passage of the Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts Tax.

DEAR DOCTOR K: I have a newborn daughter, and I’m worried about keeping her safe while she’s sleeping. Please give me some advice. DEAR READER: The biggest concern with newborns is sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). To reduce the risk of SIDS, always place your baby on her back to sleep. In the past, some authorities said it also was OK for babies to sleep on their sides. Today, most authorities do not agree with this. Incidentally, it’s fine for babies to rest on their bellies when they’re awake. This actually helps build up the strength of their shoulders. You might run across devices called “sleep positioners.” The intention of these devices is to

Obama, media fudging unemployment figures The Obama administration is touting the latest unemployment numbers released by the U.S. Department of Labor as proof its policies are working. But a closer look at the actual number of ablebodied people who are willing to work, but are not, reveals a different picture. As economist John R. Lott has written, not only is the drop in the unemployment rate from 8.5 percent to 8.3 percent still half a percentage point higher than when President Obama took office three years ago, the number of unemployed is higher.



keep babies sleeping on their backs. However, most experts think these devices cause more harm than good. Likewise, you might hear about devices that monitor your baby’s heart and breathing while she is asleep. These also have not proven to be of value. Overheating also increases the risk of SIDS. Don’t put your baby to sleep wrapped tightly.



Compared to January 2009 when 11.6 million Americans were jobless, today, writes Lott, “there are 12.8 million unemployed and 43 percent have been out of a job for more than six months. The average length of unemployment has increased dramatically since the recovery start-

Don’t cover her with a heavy blanket or quilt. If you use a thin blanket, place your baby toward the foot of the crib, tuck the blanket around the mattress, and pull the blanket up only to her chest. Soft bedding also increases the risk of SIDS. Your baby should sleep on a firm mattress. Don’t let the baby sleep on a waterbed, sofa, pillow, quilt or other soft material. And don’t place soft stuffed toys or pillows in the crib with her. The baby could roll onto them as if they were a mattress. Next, consider the crib itself. All new cribs meet stringent safety standards. If you’re looking for a secondhand crib, one that might not meet today’s safety standards, check that:

ed. Back in June 2009, ‘only’ 29 per cent of the unemployed had been unemployed longer than six months.” The way gover nment counts things, slowing the rate of increased spending amounts to a cut and reducing the percentage of unemployed people by two-tenths of 1 percent counts as more people finding jobs, which then counts as progress. Lott examined the Labor Department’s statistics and found nearly 1.2 million Americans no longer in the labor force. That means most have given up looking for

Wider slats could allow a baby’s head to become trapped between them. — The crib is not painted with a lead-based paint, which could cause lead poisoning. — All the screws and bolts that hold the crib together are present and tightly fixed. — The crib does not have drop side rails. If a drop side rail detaches or becomes loose, your baby could become trapped between the mattress and railing. The crib mattress should not only be firm, but also should fit snugly, with no room for your baby to become trapped See DR. K, Page A5

work and ar e no longer counted as unemployed. That fact skews the statistics to make the employment picture appear better than it is. Real unemployment is mostly ignored by the major media, which was happy to tout the latest jobless rate reduction as a boon to President Obama and a problem for Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney. Most reporting has focused on the impression voters might have of an economic r ecovery, or at least trending in the right

Soldiers fought for more than a year

Dear Editor, In response to the letter Mr. Sivertson wrote to the editor on Tuesday, the 17th of January, I agree with most of what he says about the Marines urinating on the enemy after they are dead. Although he says he does not condone it, I certainly did not stop my buddies from doing the very same thing in World War II. I feel that front line combat soldiers have earned the right to do just about anything they want to do with the enemy, (dead or alive). I still do not like the Germans or the Japanese. They tried their level best to kill me day and night for more than two years. Where I do differ with Mr. Sivertson is this: The time World War II soldiers spent overseas. He seems to think the Normandy invasion was the start of the war with Germany. What about North African Campaign, Sicily, Italy? I was there one year before Normandy ever happened. By that time I had already made four beach landings. My infantry division (The 45th Thunder Birds)

direction. The opposite is true and it is up to Romney to make that case. After an initial tepid reaction to the unemployment numbers, Romney rebounded, but it came a day late after the news cycle had moved on and the media cheerleading for Pr esident Obama had achieved the desired effect. Many in the major media can’t be counted on to tell the truth about the economy if doing so makes Obama and his policies look bad. Consider how some in the media collectively claimed the recession had not eased as the 1992 election neared. After the inauguration of President Clinton, it was reported that, in fact, the recession had ended more than a year earlier. Through the election, the media completely accepted the Democratic line the recession had not abated. This means the Republican nominee will have to go over or ar ound the media to make his case. The best way to do this is not with statistics, but with real people. The Republican candidates for president should identify unemployed people who have lost their jobs, or who have given up looking for one. Have them tell their stories and let the candidates put the blame on

invaded Sicily July 10, 1943, at Salerno Italy; Sept. 9, Anzio Italy; Jan. 21 1944, Southern France August 1944, ending up in Munich, Germany. When the war was over May 8, 1945, we had 511 combat days to our credit at that time (on the line), So count those up and I think you will come up with more than one year as you stated that World War II soldiers only served overseas. Just wanted to set everyone straight after reading your article, You should get your history straight before writing about it. If you, or anyone else, don’t believe me I have my honorable discharge which states the 511 combat days on it. By the way, I was the third man volunteering from Roswell in January 1941 and did not get back to Roswell until August of 1945. Anyone criticizing what the Marines did to the enemy who has not been in their shoes should apologize and shut up. From someone that’s been there. Lowell B. Hughes Roswell the pr esident and congr essional Democrats whose plans to raise taxes, drastically incr ease spending and impose Obamacare on the country has added to the economic uncertainty and the reluctance of businesses to hire new workers. Featuring real people who are out of a job and desperately want to work would help undermine the Democrats as the party of compassion, while simultaneously blunting the Republican stereotype as the party that does not care about the poor. Democrats seem eager to get more people onto food stamps than to adopt policies that would free them from addiction to government and give them the dignity of a real job and the selfsufficiency that goes with it. Romney must be less reactive and more proactive, less responsive to Obama and the news of the day and more concerned with creating his own news every day. Going on the offensive about unemployment is a strategy that can work. (Write to Cal Thomas at: T ribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

between the mattress and the crib. Don’t cover the mattress with plastic or a quilt. And avoid crib quilt bumpers, which also pose a risk for suffocation. Should your baby sleep in bed with you — so called “co-sleeping”? This is a common practice, but it’s not safe. The baby could roll out of the bed. Worse, a

The toughest thing for a couple to do

A6 Sunday, February 12, 2012

Do you remember the first time you fell in love? Do you remember the feeling? Pure emotion. You were likely a teenager with hormones running rampant. You spent hour after hour after hour thinking about the other person. You wondered what he or she was doing, whether or not they were having fun, when you would talk next, and so on ... Most likely somewhere down the road you married a person different than the one you first fell in love with. You mixed some wisdom in with your emotion when you chose a spouse. Still plenty of emotion, but not the raging hormone syndrome. Many of you are still married. Many of you have been through a failed marriage. We each wake up today unable to change the past, but able to impact our future. My wife, Tanya, and I got engaged on Valentine’s Day 28 years ago. We were involved in a singles group led by a diverse group of singles from their 20’s to their 50’s who planned social functions for singles in our community. It was called “Force One.” After getting engaged we were excited to tell the group at our next meeting. I announced our engagement holding hands with Tanya with excitement to the group and received a somber response with absolutely no enthusiasm back. I realized later most of this group’s members had “been there





and done that” and had not had a good experience. In their minds they knew that two young people in their mid 20’s who got married would not last. Tanya and I left that evening realizing that we were a part of a group that was “down” on the institution of marriage. Twenty-eight years later, I guess Tanya and I found marriage to be something different from the individuals in the group we used to belong to. There are three different emotions that most of us experience. One emotion is the first time we fell in love. The second is when we go through the excitement of our first marriage and honeymoon. And the third is our emotions or attitude toward our first spouse years later. This third category could run the gambit on the spectrum depending on whether or not a person remained married to his or her first spouse. I think of the saying “After every honeymoon comes a marriage.” Honeymoons are fun. You

Truth about the tax

Dear Editor: This letter is to encourage our voters to support the Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts Tax that will be on the ballot on March 6. It is also meant to hopefully clarify the misconception/misinterpretation about this tax. Misconception/misinterpretation No. 1: The mayor controls! Roswell is not a fiefdom and the mayor is not our king. Everything that is paid for by this gross receipts tax first has to go through a specified committee and then approved by our City Council. The mayor has only one vote, and he cannot exercise this vote unless there is a tie during a City Council vote. Otherwise, the mayor does not vote. Misconception/misinterpretation No. 2: There is still a good ole boy system at work. No, there isn’t! Because of the new rules in place, the entire community is represented. Example: If a company is interested in moving to our All-American City, it must first complete an application. These applications are quite complicated and extensive. After the applications are completed, they are forwarded to Bob Donnell, Roswell’s economic developer. After he screens the applications, he then makes a recommendation to the seven-member committee. The committee’s name is Economic Development Project Review Committee. The individuals on this com-


are visiting and exploring a place you don’t regularly visit. You are with someone you want to be with, typically in an unfamiliar land. But then the honeymoon ends and the marriage sets in. Soon there are children and a couple’s marriage changes again. Then the children leave home and the true test of the strength of a marriage occurs. Does a couple truly enjoy being together once they are the last two in the home? Marriage has its benefits. It also has its challenges. There is very little in this world that can be as fulfilling as a happy marriage. It is easier to run a marathon or to climb a mountain than to maintain a happy and healthy marriage. Each of these involves focusing on an end result, it is just that in a marriage relationship, it is not a single event, but daily and hourly events over a sustained period of time. The finish line in maintaining a healthy marriage is not 26.2 miles from the starting line, it is “til death do we part.” In a marriage we are not only seeking to give and receive joy from another. We are modeling for the next generation what marriage is all about. We are living breathing examples for our children of what a marriage relationship is all about. We are raising sons and daughters who in time will be husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. The legacy

Roswell Daily Record

we pass to them will likely be passed on to their children. So why does the feeling of falling in love for the first time, the feeling on a marriage/honeymoon and the feeling of waking up with your spouse after many years of marriage differ? Experts would scatter many different directions on this one. Variables that might be used to answer this question include communication, expectations, commitment, growth, upbringing, finances, influencers and temptations. In any relationship, a couple is either growing together or growing apart. No couple can have a healthy relationship without an effective pattern of communication. If your communication breaks, so does your marriage. Difficult times can be pulled through because of commitment. Commitment has been defined before as “sticking with it after the feeling is gone.” If a couple surrounds themselves with good influencers and they stay out of zones of temptations, they have a greater chance of a successful marriage. The legacy your parents passed on to you by modeling what marriage is all about can be something that benefits a marriage or something a person or couple has to overcome. Arguments over finances often top the list of reasons for a marriage breaking apart.

mittee are qualified to read financial statements and make sound business decisions. The committee researches the company, and if they feel this company is a viable company and worthy of our city investing in them, their names are forwarded to the Roswell City Council. The City Council will then vote on whether or not to proceed with said company and/or companies. Misconception/misinterpretation No. 3: The city of Roswell is in the lending business. No, the city of Roswell is not in the lending business! Example: A company wants to start a sandal manufacturing company in Roswell. They offer to build their own building, and hire 300 local people to go to work for them. The city of Roswell may offer them the land, for $99 a year for 100 years. Now that the land is there and the incoming company has committed to building a $300,000 building, all seems well; however, here is the problem. The company will want paved roads leading to their building. They will want sewer systems and other infrastructure. The Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts tax will help fund these costs. Please note: there is no subsidizing any new company or their employees. Misconception/misinterpretation No. 4: There are no plans as to where to use the money. Until the city finds out who this new company is and what their needs are, there can be no planning. However there are rules in place so that a check is not randomly issued out to anyone. Every company considered must first be screened and approved. Remember, this is an infrastructure tax, not a lending operation.

Having a happy and healthy marriage is the toughest thing most couples can ever do. Considering the above variables and adding to them, a couple’s challenge in not to just maintain a base marriage, but to enjoy each other and to become best friends growing closer together as the years go by. I know this is possible, because this has occurred in my marriage. As Valentine’s Day approaches, my challenge to you is to choose to succeed in your relationship with your spouse. You can do it. It may be the most difficult thing you ever do. It will probably be the most important thing you ever do. It is well worth it. Even though the emotions of falling in love the first time and the marriage/honeymoon experience leave, they can be replaced by a maturing love that sustains time as the two of you find ways to grow together and celebrate the differences God gave you. Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you and may God richly bless your marriage relationship. Just a thought ... Rick Kraft wishes his wife and best friend a happy Valentine’s Day, also, may we enjoy the next 28 years together as much as the past 28 years. To submit comments, contributions, or ideas, email to or write to P.O. Box 850, Roswell, NM, 88202-0850.

Misconception/misinterpretation No. 5: This is a costly tax, and it will hurt the poor. No! This tax is only 12.5 cents per every $100 spent. It will not hurt the poor because this tax will not apply to the basic necessities, such as: food, prescription medication or gas. If we pass the tax, it is us, the working class, that will help generate and bring jobs to our city. This alone will help those poor and unemployed in the future. Can you spare a dime to help our brothers and sisters in need? Furthermore, these taxes will be paid by all visitors coming to Roswell, such as Gus Macker, Grid Iron, UFO Festival, Pinatafest, etc. Remember, when you spend your money in Ruidoso, you contribute 8.62 percent to their gross receipts tax. Lubbock is at 8.25 percent, Albuquerque is 7 percent, Las Cruces is 7.56 percent, and just down the road from us, Elida is at 7.56 percent. You are contributing to their economic development. Why not contribute to our own community? Last, but not least, we cannot rely on Washington and Santa Fe to support us. Those taxes they impose on us may or may not get here. However, a local tax will generate funds within our city, and will be controlled by us. That will benefit all of Chaves County. And yes, there will be transparency if we care enough to stay involved. Vote “yes” on March 6 for our Municipal Infrastructure Gross Receipts Tax, and let’s grow Roswell together! Sincerely, R.G. Villegas Roswell

Smoking can be a fire danger in your home Roswell Daily Record

Careless smoking is the leading cause of fire-related deaths and home fire deaths in the United States. It is the second leading cause of injuries among people ages 65 and older. Most of the fires that result in death were caused by smoking materials – cigarettes, cigars, or pipes – which had ignited in bed. If you happen to be a smoker, you must be careful to keep your home, business, co-workers and family safe from fire. As a for mer smoker myself, I can remember countless times when I had this gnawing fear that I might have put my home at risk and perhaps even my fami-

ly as well! It is imperative that you use your common sense – know the risks and make sure when you put it out, it really is out! Be well aware and take extra care if you smoke when you’re drowsy, taking prescription drugs, or if you have been drinking. It’s just too easy to fall asleep and not notice that a cigarette is still burning. Don’t leave a lit cigarette, cigar or pipe lying around.They can easily overbalance as they burn down and land on a carpet or a newspaper, or something else which can catch fire. And never smoke in bed. Period! If you are sleepy, intoxicated or taking medication, don’t light

up and go to bed. If you need to lie down, put away the smokes. Many times, smokers will just prop up a lit cigarette on the edge of a sink, or a piece of furniture, expecting to come back to it shortly. This is certainly not a safe smoking practice. Use a proper ashtray.

In order to prevent ashes from spilling onto furniture, ash trays should be large, deep, and heavy and can’t tip over easily. Likewise, don’t rest ashtrays on sofas or chairs. Check ashtrays frequently, and empty them into the toilet or preferably into an airtight metal container. War m ashes dumped in trash cans or tapped into a wastepaper basket can smolder for hours, and then ignite. Completely douse cigarette butts and ashes with water before throwing them away.

tank is in use. Otherwise, if smokers do visit your home, encourage them to smoke outside. If young children are involved, remind your visitors to keep cigarettes, lighters, and matches out of their reach. Make sure that people do not leave cigarettes, cigars, or pipes unattended, and that they keep smoking materials away from anything that can burn. When your visitors have departed, be sure to check on the floor and around chair cushions for ashes that may have been dropped accidentally. Finally, a working smoke alarm more than doubles your chances of surviving a

fire. You should install one on every level of your home, test the batteries every month and change them at least once per year. Fire safety is not dif ficult, requiring only awareness and common sense. Preventive measures such as these can keep your friends and family from becoming a fire statistic.

USDA Rural Development State Director Terry Brunner announced today that during the next few weeks, USDA Rural Development will host free trainings on obtaining loan guarantees and grants for renewable energy systems and energy ef ficiency improvement projects. In making the announcement, Brunner said, “We’re hosting the trainings because we believe that the State of New Mexico has an untapped source of energy projects that can be successful under these programs.” Brunner added, “We want to make sure that rural small businesses and agriculture producers know how to apply for this financial support, which will make their business more competitive and more energy efficient.” The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) offers financial help to agricultural producers and

rural small businesses (no residences) to purchase and install renewable energy systems and make energy efficiency improvements. Grant funds are also available for renewable energy feasibility studies. Renewable energy systems include biofuels, wind, solar, geothermal, hydrogen-based projects and anaerobic digesters. Energy efficiency projects include changing out inefficient pumps, insulation, roofing, lighting, heating and cooling systems, etc. for more efficient ones. New Mexicans have been awarded funds to change out evaporative coolers to more ef ficient ones at a lumber company in Santa Rosa, to install solar panels to make electricity that runs irrigation pumps at a pecan farm in Roswell, and to install solar panels at a storage unit business in Deming. Each workshop covers

the same infor mation except for the application workshop in Albuquerque, where staff will give step by step details on the REAP application. The training will be held Wednesday, Feb. 15, from 1:15-2:15 p.m. at the SNMEDD, 1600 South East Main St. Although attendance is free an RSVP is appreciated so plans can be made for adequate seating and handouts. Also if you RSVP and there is a cancellation due to weather you will be called and notified of the postponement. To make an RSVP or to get more information on the trainings please contact Ms. Kim Giang, USDA Rural Development at 505761-4953 or .

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Steelers’ wide receiver Hines Ward wants to retire with the Pittsburgh Steelers, offering to restructure his contract to do it. Ward posted on his Facebook page Saturday that he’s already told the Steelers he’s willing to work with them on altering his deal so he can remain with the team. Ward’s comments came after reported the Steelers are planning to cut the franchise’s all-time leading receiver. “I don’t normally like to respond to rumors, but as I’ve said all along, I want to finish my career with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Ward posted. The 14-year veteran is scheduled to make $4 million in 2012. He’s coming off a season in which he finished with 46 receptions for 381 yards and two touchdowns, the lowest totals in each category since he was a rookie in 1998.


Lessard won his crown in the 113-pound weight class with a technical fall win over Santa Teresa’s Alec Mendez in the finals and a pinfall victory over Chaparral’s Abraham Valdez in the semifinals. R. Anaya won 7-3 over Santa Teresa’s Rudy Barraza in 132 finals. He beat Deming’s Daniel Myers in the semifinals 9-5 to reach the championship match. Marcus Trujillo won the crown at 138 after a 4-0 win over Roswell’s David Juarez in the finals and a 10 win over Deming’s Edric Boomgaarn in the semifinals. Whiteside won his crown at 170 after a first-period pin of Santa Teresa’s Freddy Garciasalas. D. Anaya and Terrazas each won their second consecutive district titles for the Rockets.

After winning last year’s NMAA 1A/2A/3A Team Tennis Championship while going a perfect 18-0, the NMMI boys tennis team did what any defending champion does — set the goal to repeat. Repeating isn’t the only goal for the Colts, though. NMMI also wants a gooseegg in the loss column all season. After winning its first two matches of the season at the Goddard Invitational, the Colts faced stiff competition from Goddard, but topped the Rockets 8-1 to take the tournament title and improve to 3-0. The championship match got started with doubles action and the most competitive pairing was at first doubles between NMMI’s Jorge Garza and Gerardo Estrella, and Goddard’s Konnor Kundomal and Martin Joyce. The Colts quickly built a 4-1 lead, but the Rockets battled back. Down 4-1 and on Kundomal’s serve, Goddard fell behind 15-0 after an error, but, on the next point, Joyce poached and hit a shot at Estrella’s feet to tie the game at 15. Kundomal won the next point on

his first serve and the Colts knotted it up at 30 after a winner from Estrella. They traded the next two points to force a deuce and an Estrella error gave the Rockets momentum. After holding on Kundomal’s service game to cut the deficit to 4-2, the Rockets broke Garza and held on Joyce’s serve when Kundomal ripped a winner down the line to tie the first set at four. NMMI was able to hold on Estrella’s service game to take a 5-4 lead, but Kundomal held serve thanks to three points won on his first serve. The final lead change came in the 11th game, when the Colts took a 6-5 lead. In the final game of the set, Goddard took a 15-0 lead when Estrella hit an overhead shot long, but he made up for the error by smashing a forehand winner on the next point. The Rockets took a 3015 lead when Kundomal put away a lazy volley and he won the next point when Joyce’s first serve forced a short lob that Kundomal put away. A Joyce error made the score 40-30 and the Colts forced deuce off an overhead

Wi leads by three at Pebble, Tiger four back

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Coming off an early bogey that put him eight shots behind, Tiger Woods was in a bunker to the left of the 13th fairway at Pebble Beach when he cut a 9-iron too much, sending it right of the green toward deep rough. The ball caromed off a mound and onto the green and started rolling. And rolling. When it finally settled a foot below the hole, and the gallery’s cheers grew increasingly louder, Woods hung his head and smiled. He went from possible bogey to unlikely birdie. And with five birdies in a six-hole stretch, he went from the periphery of contention to the thick of it Saturday in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, another step toward showing his game is on the way back. “Looked like I was having a tough time making par, and I was making birdie, and off we go,” Woods said. “Sometimes, we need those types of momentum swings in a round, and from there, I made some putts.” If nothing else, he made it interesting going into the final round of his PGA Tour debut. Charlie Wi played bogeyfree at Spyglass Hill for a 3under 69 to build a threeshot lead over Ken Duke, who had a 65 on the Shore Course at Monterey Penin-


sula. Woods had a 5-under 67, his best Saturday score on the PGA Tour since the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and climbed within four shots of the lead. It’s the closest he has been to a 54-hole leader on the PGA Tour since the 2010 Masters. Saturday at Pebble is all about the stars, as CBS Sports traditionally devotes its coverage to celebrities, from Ray Romano to Bill Murray dressed in camouflage while throwing a football to former San Francisco 49ers lineman Harris Barton. Sunday will have some star power of its own. Not only is Woods in the penultimate group — right in front of two players who have never won on the PGA Tour — he will be in the same group as longtime nemesis Phil Mickelson, who had a 70 at Pebble Beach despite playing the par 5s in 1 over. Still in the mix is two-time Pebble Beach champion Dustin Johnson, former world No. 1 Vijay Singh and three-time major champion Padraig Harrington, who was two shots off the lead at one point until a sloppy finish at Spyglass for a 72. Wi is 0-for -162 on the PGA Tour and now has to face his demons of selfdoubt — along with a familiar force in golf.

Dexter 57, Portales 44 PORTALES — David Lopez scored a game-high 26 points and the Demons picked up their 18th win of the season on Saturday over the Portales Rams. The Demons used a 19-10 advantage in the second quarter to open up a double-digit halftime lead and built a 14-point lead going to the fourth en route to the victory. “We played really good. We played good defense; we pressured them with our full-court press and they had problems with it,” said Demon coach James Voight. “And we rebounded well. They were bigger than us, but we kept them off the glass pretty good. Overall, it was a great win.” Kevin Bonner and Nathan Fuller chipped in nine apiece for the Demons (18-6).

Trinidad State 6-8, NMMI 2-3 The New Mexico Military Institute Bronco baseball team dropped the final two games of a four-game set with Trinidad State on Saturday to fall to 1-7 on the year. In Game 1, two sixth-inning Bronco errors paved the way to three Trojan runs and Trinidad held off NMMI over the final two innings to get the win. Trinidad clung to a 2-1 lead going to the sixth and opened the lead up to 5-1 thanks to three unearned runs. Taylor Dudley scored the first of those three when he scored on a Pedro Taveras error that allowed Brandon Vaughn to reach. Vaughn moved to third on another error that let Andres Alburjas reach base. Vaughn scored on the next at-bat on a Hans Ask sacrifice fly and Alburjas scored right after that on an RBI double by Chayse Marion. The Trojans tacked on an insurance run in the seventh and NMMI was unable to rally back despite

Woods couldn’t convert a share of the third-round lead with Robert Rock two weeks ago in Abu Dhabi, but he is showing an upward trend. He has given himself a chance to win on the back nine of his last four stroke-play tournaments. With a new swing, it’s starting to look like the old Tiger. “But the scenario doesn’t change,” Woods said. “The ultimate goal is to win a golf tournament.” That’s something Wi has never done. He was at 15under 199, and he has a 54hole lead for only the second time on tour. He had a oneshot lead at Colonial last year and was runner-up to David Toms. This time, Wi will be in the last group with someone in a familiar spot. Duke is winless in 142 starts. The last two weeks haven’t been too kind to 54hole leaders, either. Kyle Stanley lost a five-shot lead at Torrey Pines, and Spencer Levin blew a six-shot lead the following week in the Phoenix Open. Both were going for their first PGA Tour win. Your turn, Charlie. “I haven’t really thought about that,” Wi said, when asked if it were a blessing or a burden to be in front. “But I enjoy being in the lead. It’s a lot more fun than trying to come from behind. I know that tonight is going to be

In Game 2, NMMI jumped ahead 1-0 with a run in the first, but the Trojans scored the game’s next five en route to the victory. In the first, Grant Foley scored on a Pedro Taveras ground out to give the Broncos a 1-0 advantage, but that lead wouldn’t last past the next half-inning. Brock Schlekeway scored on an RBI single by Dan Peakman to tie the game and Trinidad took the lead for good on the next at-bat when Vaughn singled home Hilario Vidaurre to make it 2-1. The T rojans added two in the third, one in the fourth and three in the sixth to secure the win. Ben Williams picked up the win for the Trojans. He allowed three runs on six hits in six innings of work. Rafael Belloc took the loss for the Broncos. At the plate, Taveras was 1 for 3 with two RBIs for the Broncos.

Ruiz and McArthur also got a win at first doubles for Roswell. Coyote coach Kelly McDonald said that the match against the Bulldogs was close. “We had a couple of three setters and it was very competitive,” he said. “I was happy with how (we) played.” McDonald added that he didn’t mind playing Artesia this early in the season. “I really don’t mind (playing them this early),” he said. “A lot of coaches wouldn’t like to, but I like to see how we line up against them. Artesia stands between us and getting to state. That is what we look at if we are to achieve our goal of going

Goddard 6, Lovington 3 Goddard took home the Goddard Invitational championship with a win over Lovington on Saturday. Singles winners for the Rockets (3-0) were Gabby Joyce (first), Katie Hillman (second), Lexi Cassels (third), Shannon DuCharme (fourth) and Brook Bates (sixth). Joyce and Hillman teamed up to win first doubles. Goddard coach Becky Joyce said that her team played well. “They did well, considering how cold it was,” she said. “They played pretty well and all three of our doubles teams went into a three-set tiebreaker. Everyone is getting used to their new partners and i am pleased.”

Clovis 6, Roswell 3 Roswell fell to Clovis in the thirdplace match of the Goddard Invitational on Saturday. The Coyotes got singles victories from Kristina Clark (third) and Desiree Cooper (fifth). Cooper and Clark also teamed up to win second doubles. Roswell coach Kelly McDonald said that his team had close matches and that he was pleased with how his young team competed. “Again, we had some close matches,” he said. “I had a lot of question marks with them because they were so young, but I am happy with how they competed. Having so many young ones at the top, you never know what will happen when they get out there.”

NMMI 6, All-Stars 3 NMMI picked up a win over the All-Stars on Saturday at the Goddard Invitational. The Colts picked up singles wins from Mariah Garcia (first), Susanna Pesonen (second), Samantha Ikard (third) and Chloe Ikard (fourth). Doubles wins came from Garcia and Pesonen (first) and S. and C. Ikard (second). All three of NMMI’s losses came via forfeit.

Mickelson was at 9-under 205, along with Johnson and Hunter Mahan. Harrington was at 206, while another stroke back were Singh and Geoff Ogilvy. Wi is No. 175 in the world, while Duke is at No. 258. They have combined for 304 starts without a win. Right behind them are Woods and Mickelson, who have combined for 18 majors and 110 PGA Tour wins. “It’s really fun, especially when the big guys are up there,” Duke said. “That’s when everyone is out there watching. If you do perform well and play well, they will be watching you, as well. It’s going to be fun.” With a short burst of birdies, it looked as though Woods was having a blast. He rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on the 14th, and then had a 25-foot putt up

the slope on the 15th. One of the amateurs in his group had a similar putt, so Woods was able to look at the break. He learned well, extending his left arm as he often does before the putt drops. And it did. Woods made good birdie putts from 20 feet on the 17th and 8 feet on the 18th, where he also got a small break. Not wanting to hit driver in the first place because he couldn’t reach in two, he came out of the shot. It looked like it might go out-of-bounds until it hit a CBS spotter and settled behind the bunkers. Woods made an easy birdie on the par-5 second, but that was it. He had to save par on the short par-4 fourth from a bunker, and didn’t give himself enough good looks the rest of the way.

American teen Korda leads Women’s Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — American teenager Jessica Korda moved into position for a two-sport, father-daughter Australian double, shooting an even-par 73 in windy conditions to take the Women’s Australian Open lead at Royal Melbourne. Korda, the 18-year-old daughter of 1998 Australian Open tennis champion Petr Korda, had a 4-under 215 total in the LPGA Tour opener on the historic club’s difficult Composite Course, the 2011 Presidents Cup venue that is hosting a women’s professional event for the first time. She opened with rounds of 72 and 70. So Yeon Ryu, the U.S. Women’s Open champion who took a one-stroke lead into the third round, was a stroke back along with fellow South Korean player Hee Kyung Seo and Australia’s Nikki Campbell. Ryu shot a 76, Seo had a 75, and Campbell a 70. Topranked Yani Tseng, the winner the last two years at Commonwealth Golf Club, topped the group at 2 under after a 71. The Taiwanese star was still smarting from a three-hole stretch Friday in her secondround 76 when she dropped six strokes with a quadruple-bogey 8 and two bogeys. Canada’s Lorie Kane and American Katie Futcher also were 2 under. The 47-year-old Kane had a 72, and Futcher shot a 71.

Catcher Mike Napoli and the Texas Rangers have agreed to a $9.4 million, oneyear contract and avoided a salary arbitration hearing. Napoli is getting a raise from $5.8 million last season, his first in Texas. A person familiar with the deal spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday night because the team had not yet announced the deal. After spending his first five major league seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, Napoli set career highs last season by hitting .320 with 30 homers and 75 RBIs in 113 games while the Rangers won their second consecutive American League pennant. He started 57 games at catcher, 27 at first base and 18 as the designated hitter. Napoli had asked for $11.5 million, and the Rangers had offered $8.3 million. The deal came four days before Napoli’s scheduled arbitration hearing. It also wrapped up a week in which the Rangers also completed deals with slugging outfielder Nelson Cruz and shortstop Elvis Andrus to avoid hearings. Napoli was traded twice in five days last winter, first going from the Angels to Toronto before the Blue Jays traded him to Texas for reliever Frank Francisco. Then he had a breakout season, becoming the Rangers’ primary catcher the second half of the season. After missing three weeks with a strained left oblique and returning to the lineup July 4, Napoli hit .378 with 20 homers and 50 RBIs over the last 67 regular-season games. He hit .328 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 17 postseason games, including 10 RBIs in the World Series. The 30-year-old Napoli is a .264 career hitter with 122 homers and 324 RBIs in 619 games.

Payne, Green pace No. 11 MSU past No. 3 OSU

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Adreian Payne scored 15 points, Draymond Green had 12 and defense-minded No. 11 Michigan State beat No. 3 Ohio State 58-48 Saturday night, ending the Buckeyes’ 39-game home winning streak. The Spartans (20-5, 9-3) pulled into a tie with the Buckeyes (21-4, 9-3) for first place in the Big Ten. Keith Appling had 14 points for Michigan State, which rode its smothering pressure to a 10-point halftime lead and never relented down the stretch. Payne finished 6 for 6 from the field and 3 for 4 on free throws. Jared Sullinger had 17 points and 16 rebounds for Ohio State, but was 5 for 15 from the field. Aaron Craft added 15 points, but Deshaun Thomas and William Buford, averaging a combined 30 points, totaled just 12. The Spartans held the Buckeyes almost 30 points under their average of 76.9 points a game. Ohio State shot just 26 percent from the field (14 for 53). Ahead 35-25 at the half, the Spartans weathered an early Ohio State assault. A quick field goal by Thomas and two Sullinger free throws pulled the Buckeyes within six, but it was also apparent that Sullinger, in particular, was growing frustrated by the defensive focus from the Spartans. He yelled after being fouled by Payne at the 18:27 mark, with Green then knocking the ball out of his hands. Later, Sullinger and Green ended up on the floor after tangling on a rebound. But that was the last skirmish between the two frontrunners for Big Ten player of the year. Sullinger finished with 10 turnovers — Ohio State totaled 15. Green had nine rebounds, two assists and a steal to go with his 12 points. He drew extra attention every time he touched the ball, but Ohio State was not able to neutralize him as the Spartans did

Sullinger. Despite the early surge by Ohio State, things still didn’t change for the Spartans. Sullinger seldom if ever got an open view of the hoop and Buford and Thomas failed to relieve the pressure by hitting perimeter shots. Buford had what appeared to be an open lane to the basket but Payne blocked the shot, with Appling scoring quickly at the other end to make it 44-34. Swapping body blows and occasional buckets, the teams soldiered on. Ohio State pulled to 44-40 on a 15-footer by Sullinger, but Appling hit two free throws and Nix coaxed in a baby hook to push the lead back to eight and set up a wild last 4 1⁄2 minutes. Payne banking in a shot over Sullinger, before Sullinger was called for a charge to pick up his fourth foul. That caused Ohio State coach Thad Matta to call over official Mike Kitts to complain before a media timeout. Green then drove the baseline on Thomas for a layup to stretch the lead to 10. Ohio State never got closer than eight again. The teams will meet again in the regular-season finale on March 4 in East Lansing, Mich. The Buckeyes had won the last three meetings, although Michigan State has now won six of the last eight in Columbus. There were few surprises in a first half that was both physical and dominated by defense. Payne made all five of his shots from the field and led all scorers with 11 points. Ohio State had not lost at home since falling to Purdue two years ago. The 39game streak was the second-longest in the nation, and the second-longest in school history behind the 50 in a row in the early 1960s.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Phil Pressey’s first 3-point attempt went in off the glass. The sophomore guard, known more for flashy, nolook passes than his outside touch, took that sketchy success and ran with it. Pressey scored 19 points, making four of No. 4 Missouri’s season-best 14 3-pointers, and the Tigers beat No. 6 Baylor 72-57 on Saturday. He had no 3-pointers the previous five games, but stepped up against the slumping Bears. “It just happens like that sometimes,” Pressey said of his bank shot. “I made it, so that’s all that counts.” Sixth man Michael Dixon also had four 3-pointers and Marcus Denmon added three for Missouri (23-2, 10-2 Big 12), which shot 50 percent from long range. “That’s what they was giving us and that’s what we was taking. And making,” Dixon said. Missouri is 14-0 at home with an average margin of 24 points and got an easier test a week after needing a 11-0 run to beat Kansas by three. Both games were sellouts but the matchup against Baylor (21-4, 8-4), carrying a higher ranking, failed to match that atmosphere. Still, the Tigers said they were

energized by the response from the fans in the second half. “Yeah, it got pretty loud,” Dixon said. “The crowd does ignite us.” Quincy Miller had 20 points and Perry Jones III had just four on 2for-12 shooting for Baylor, which flopped for the second straight game after a 14-point home loss against No. 8 Kansas on Wednesday night. The Bears shot just 36 percent, negating a whopping 4027 rebounding advantage. Baylor has lost twice to Missouri and Kansas and is unbeaten otherwise. “When Missouri is on, there is nobody in the country as good as them offensively. Nobody. Period,” coach Scott Drew said. “And when I mean on, is when they’re making their 3s. So you have to hope they’re not on. They’ve been on a lot this year.” Baylor stopped Ricardo Ratliffe, Missouri’s lone inside threat, but nobody else. Ratliffe was held to six points on 3-for -9 shooting after entering the game shooting 75.5 percent, threatening the NCAA single-season record. “When you’re making shots, it’s really tough to go out there and try to chase around the guys that they have that can break you down off

Regional college hoops: Lobo, Aggie men win Men’s basketball

New Mexico 48, Wyoming 38 ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A.J. Hardeman scored five of his nine points to kick start a 13-2 run that propelled New Mexico to a victory over Wyoming on Saturday. Kendall Williams led New Mexico (20-4, 6-2 Mountain West) with 10 points while Drew Gordon had 13 rebounds and Hardeman grabbed eight. Francisco Cruz scored 14 for the Cowboys (18-6, 4-4), who only had four players score. The teams combined to hit just 30 field goals and shot a combined 31.6 percent from the field. The game turned on the run that Hardeman started with the Lobos trailing 25-21. Jamal Fenton’s deep 3-pointer at the 9:40 mark capped the surge, leaving New Mexico with a 34-27 lead that it would not relinquish the rest of the game. Although the Cowboys twice got within two points late in the game, Williams and Hugh Greenwood each went 4 for 4 from the line in the closing 1:12 to help preserve the Lobos’ lead. Wyoming had an early 16-11 lead as Cruz hit three of his four 3-pointers, but New Mexico used an 8-0 run to take a 19-16 lead. The Cowboys, however, responded with a 7-0 run to close the half, taking a 23-19 advantage into the halftime. The Lobos held the rebounding edge at 43-31. New Mexico’s depth proved to be crucial with a 14-0 scor-

ing advantage from the bench. Wyoming also suffered from a failure to reach the foul line, going 5 of 8 while the Lobos went 13 of 23.

New Mexico St. 80, Utah St. 69 LOGAN, Utah ( — The New Mexico State men’s basketball team defeated Utah State in Logan, Utah, for the first time since Feb. 11, 2006. The Aggies improved to 18-8 and 73 in the WAC with their first sweep of the Navy-clad Aggies (13-13, 5-6) since the 2005-06 season. NM State had four players in double-figures with redshirt senior forward Wendell McKines leading the way with a game-high 20 points and nine rebounds. Senior guard Hernst Laroche had 16 points and seven assists. Junior forward Bandja Sy supplied 13 points, while senior center Hamidu Rahman had 10. The Aggies ended the first half with a 15-2 run to take a 38-33 lead into halftime. Sy scored the last eight points of the half. He finished the first 20 minutes of action with a game-



high 11 points on 3-of-3 shooting from beyond the arc. Laroche added seven points and four assists, while McKines supplied six points and four rebounds. Out of the break, the Aggies controlled the second half until a Utah State layup tied the game at 65-65 with 6:44 to play. The NM State defense locked in and then only allowed four points in the final six minutes. After the Aggies fell behind for the first time in the second half — 66-65 with six minutes to play — NM State responded with the next six points, including a three-point play from junior forward Tyrone Watson. The Aggies concluded the game on a 15-4 run.

the bounce,” Drew said. “So usually you have to give up something, and tonight we gave up the 3.” Pierre Jackson, who had 20 points and 15 assists in a onepoint loss to Missouri at home on Jan. 21, had five points on 2-for-9 shooting with five assists in the rematch. Baylor entered the game leading the Big 12 in 3-point shooting but was just 4 for 17 from long range. The 6-foot-11 Jones, a sophomore, is a top NBA prospect, but has struggled in both meetings against Missouri, totaling eight points and four rebounds at home. He also was off at Kansas, getting five points on 1-for-8 shooting. “The problem is he’s judged on that potential sometimes,” Drew said, “and that’s hard on everybody.” Denmon had 16 points, passing Jon Sundvold for 10th on Missouri’s career scoring list. Dixon finished with 16 points and six assists, and Kim English had 12 points, all in the second half. Missouri shot 48 percent from the field overall. It had 12 3-pointers twice earlier in the season, against Oklahoma and Niagara. See MISSOURI, Page B5

(AP) — Doron Lamb hit a 3-pointer with 3:18 left to put No. 1 Kentucky ahead to stay, and the Wildcats took a big step toward a Southeastern Conference regular-season title by beating Vanderbilt 69-63 Saturday night for their 17th straight win. Kentucky (25-1, 11-0) disrupted Vanderbilt with aggressive defense in the first half, and the Wildcats held off a furious charge in a sold-out and electric Memorial Gym by scoring the final eight points of the game. Lamb finished with 16 points, Anthony Davis added 15 points and seven blocks, Terrence Jones scored 14 and Marquis Teague had 13. Vanderbilt (17-8, 6-4) led 63-61 with 4:08 to go on a 3pointer by Brad Tinsley. The Commodores didn’t score again and snapped a fourgame home winning streak over No. 1 teams. John Jenkins led Vanderbilt with 15 points, and Jeffery Taylor, Tinsley and Festus Ezeli added 13 each. No. 2 Syracuse 85, Connecticut 67 SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Scoop Jardine sparked a game-deciding rally with 3pointers on consecutive possessions in the closing minutes, and No. 2 Syracuse beat Connecticut on Saturday. Jardine had a season-high 21 points as Syracuse (25-1, 12-1 Big East) earned its fifth consecutive win since

winner by Garza. Goddard had a couple of chances to win when Joyce smashed overhead shots at the net, but NMMI was able to scramble to get both of them. The Colts took the first set when Garza hit a shot at Joyce’s feet. NMMI coach Jim Kelly wasn’t surprised by his team’s ability to withstand the Goddard run. “(Garza and Estrella) have been playing together now for two years and I have kept them together,” he said. “They know each other and they never stop playing. You can never count them out. They play doubles the way I ask them to, which is to find the open shots.” It seemed like the second set was going to go down to the wire again after Goddard broke Estrella to close to within 3-2, but NMMI won three of the final four games to take the second set 6-3. NMMI’s other doubles victory came from Jose

Saturday. Durbin, who was 10 for 14 from the field, scored 19 of her points in the second half when the Lobos (8-15, 2-7 Mountain West) built a 56-44 lead, then withstood a late rally by the Cowgirls. Wyoming (9-13, 5-4) scored 11 straight points, capped by Alison Goodell’s three-point play with 46 seconds left, to close the gap to 56-55. But New Mexico’s Lauren Taylor and Nikki Nelson each made two free throws to clinch the win. Nelson finished with 11 points and Taylor scored 10. Chaundra Sewell and Kaitlyn Mileto led Wyoming with 15 points apiece, and Kayla Woodward scored 13 points. Sewell had a gamehigh eight rebounds.

suffering its only loss of the season at Notre Dame. Connecticut trailed the entire second half but closed to 63-61 on a free throw by Tyler Olander with 6:26 to go. Jardine then hit 3-pointers from the right side as the Orange closed the game with a 19-3 surge. Jeremy Lamb scored 18 points for Connecticut (15-9, 5-7), which has lost six of seven. Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun missed his third straight game since taking an indefinite medical leave due to spinal stenosis, a painful condition in his lower back. Associate head coach George Blaney once again ran the team in his absence. The crowd of 33,430 was the largest of the season and fourth largest in Carrier Dome history. No. 5 North Carolina 70, No. 19 Virginia 52 CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Tyler Zeller had 25 points and nine rebounds to power North Carolina to the victory. Harrison Barnes added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (21-4, 8-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who regrouped from Wednesday night’s stunning loss to rival Duke on a lastsecond 3-pointer. North Carolina blew the game open with a 22-5 run that started early in the second half, with Zeller scoring seven points during the spurt that pushed the Tar Heels to a

Gonzalez and Federico Sanchez. The NMMI duo topped Goddard’s Eric Lamm and Sonjay Yandalesetty, 6-0, 6-0 at second doubles. Goddard’s victory came from the third doubles team of Tristan Collar and Casey Conley. The Rocket duo downed NMMI’s Mauricio Moncada and Ricardo Kaufmann, 6-4, 6-4. NMMI got singles wins from Jose Gonzales (first; 6-3, 6-4 over Kundomal), Sanchez (second; 6-2, 6-0 over Collar), Estrella (third; 6-2, 6-0 over Lamm), Moncada (fourth; 6-4, 7-6 over Joyce), Tom Rios (fifth; 6-1, 6-0 over Conley) and Josh Shure (sixth; 6-2, 6-0 over Yandalesetty). Kelly said that he was pleased with his team’s performance. “They have played fantastic (at this tour nament),” he said. “They can hit the ball as hard as they want, but what we are working on is thinking. I think they showed that side of their game and I am pleased with their performance and attitude.”

15-point lead with about 6 minutes left. The Cavaliers (19-5, 6-4) got no closer than 11 points again, with the Tar Heels avoiding any kind of repeat of blowing a double-digit lead in the final 2 1 ⁄ 2 minutes against the Blue Devils. Mike Scott scored 18 points for the Cavaliers, who shot 36 percent. Jontel Evans added 12.


No. 7 Kansas 81, Oklahoma St. 66 LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Jeff Withey and Thomas Robinson each logged impressive double-doubles for Kansas, which wasted a big chunk of a 29-point second-half cushion before pulling away for the victory. Withey finished with 18 points and a career-best 20 rebounds, while Robinson burnished his player of the year credentials with 24 points and 14 boards for his 18th double-double of the season. Tyshawn Taylor added 12 points, Elijah Johnson had 11 and Travis Releford 10 for the Jayhawks (20-5, 10-2 Big 12), whose 55-26 lead was trimmed to a dozen with 6:43 to go. Withey and Robinson answered the call, each knocking down a pair of free throws. Markel Brown had 21 points and Keiton Page added 19 for the Cowboys (12-13, 5-7).

rebounds, and Tennessee ended Florida’s home-winning streak at 19. Coming off a 20-point loss at top-ranked Kentucky and wearing gray uniforms to commemorate the program’s back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007, Florida trailed by double digits early and never mustered anything resembling a comeback. It didn’t help that the Gators (19-6, 7-3 Southeastern Conference) played most of the game without their top two reserves, guard Mike Rosario and forward Will Yeguete. Rosario missed the game because of a hip pointer, and Yeguete suffered a head injury early in the first half when he slammed into the padding at the base of the basket. Skylar McBee had 13 points for Tennessee (13-12, 5-5), which swept the season series for the first time since 2009.

No. 10 Duke 73, Maryland 55 DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Miles Plumlee had 13 points and a career -high 22 rebounds, helping Duke pull away for the win. Seth Curry scored 19 points and Mason Plumlee added 16 points and 10 rebounds while big brother Miles became the first Duke player with 20 rebounds since Elton Brand in 1998. The Blue Devils (21-4, 8-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) followed up their last-second victory over rival North Carolina with their fifth straight victory in the series. They built a 48-33 rebounding

No. 15 Florida St. 64, Miami 59 TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Bernard James scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half and Florida State snapped Miami’s five-game winning streak. Michael Snaer had 12 points and Ian Miller finished with 11 for Florida State (17-7, 8-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), which bounced back from a disappointing 64-60 loss at Boston College on Wednesday. The 6-foot-10 James went 7 for 8 from the field in the second half and matched his career scoring high. The 27year-old Air Force veteran also had six rebounds, blocked four shots and added two steals. Kenny Kadji led Miami (15-8, 6-4) with 14 points and Durand Scott added 12.

No. 14 UNLV 65, No. 13 San Diego St. 63 LAS VEGAS (AP) — Mike Moser scored 19 points and made a key steal late that helped UNLV to the close victory. The Runnin’ Rebels (22-4, 6-2 Mountain West) forced three turnovers in the final 42 seconds to win. Moser’s steal and pass set up Anthony Marshall for the go-ahead layup. The Aztecs’ Chase Tapley had made a 3pointer to put San Diego State up by one with less than two minutes to play. San Diego State (20-4, 62) didn’t score again, despite several chances to tie or take


the second half. Dixon had the last two from well beyond the line for a 58-43 cushion with just over eight minutes left, and his 3-pointer started the run. Baylor had a 13-1 rebounding advantage early, taking full advantage of its height advantage against Missouri’s four-guard attack. Baylor has lost 11 in a row at Missouri and has not won in Columbia since 1948. The Bears have lost nine in a row to top-10 opponents.

Pressey totaled 16 3pointers in the first 24 games. Three of his 3pointers on Saturday came in the first half, including two in the final 1:42 to help Missouri take a 33-29 lead. Missouri hit six 3pointers and Steve Moore had a dunk during a 20-6 run that broke open a one-point game midway through

The Aggies (5-19, 2-7) had three players in double-digits with senior forward Tabytha Wampler posting a game-high 12 points. Senior forward Kelsie Rozendaal and sophomore guard Dre Chenier contributed 10 points each. At halftime, the Aggies trailed Utah State 27-18. Rozendaal had a team-high six points, while junior guard Camila Rosen provided four points. The Aggies dominated the glass in the first half and outrebounded Utah State, 25-17, but were hampered by miscues. Wampler had a game-high six rebounds and senior forward Erica Sanchez grabbed five boards. With 15:30 remaining in the second half, a layup from Rozendaal started a 10-1 Aggie run. Wampler followed with a jumper and then back-to-back 3-pointers from Chenier and Rosen cut Utah State’s lead to seven, 40-33, at 12:26. Utah State extended its lead to 14 points, 52-38, but five straight points from Chenier sliced the deficit to single-digits, 5243, with 3:24 to play.

Noted US Latino scholar forgotten in birthplace

SANTA FE (AP) — The name George I. Sanchez has been celebrated for years among Mexican Americans in Texas and California. A son of an Arizona miner, the Albuquerqueborn Sanchez worked his way out of poverty as a rural public school teacher in New Mexico to become a pioneer scholar and education activist. His 1940 classic book Forgotten People brought attention to the plight of poor Mexican Americans in Taos. His writings on racial segregation attracted the attention of Thurgood Marshall, the lead NAACP attorney in the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case and later a U.S. Supreme Court justice. But while a dozen or so schools in Texas and California are named in honor of Sanchez — including the School of Education building at the University of Texas where he taught for many years — not a single school in New Mexico bears his name. Few New Mexico educators or activists know much about him, according to historians and educators. No plaque exists to show his birthplace or the school where Sanchez taught. He is not listed among the state’s notable figures in New Mexico Centennial guidebooks. In a state obsessed with its Hispanic heritage, its most celebrated Latino civil rights leader and “dean of


Mexican American studies,” ironically, is seldom mentioned. His political fallout with state lawmakers in the 1930s over education reform and a divorce with his first wife, Virginia Romero, who was from a politically connected New Mexican family, diminished his stature at the time. Forty years after his death, few memories of him remain. “He’s a forgotten man for a forgotten people,” said his Cindy granddaughter Kennedy, 48, a Santa Fe teacher. Sanchez developed his theories on school inequalities using New Mexico’s Hispanic and Navajo populations as examples. He argued that bilingual students were discriminated against by monolingual school systems and testified in landmark court cases about the negative effects of segregation and IQ testing on Hispanic, American Indian and black children. That work seldom comes up in present-day discussions about education reform in the state. “It does surprise me that New Mexico doesn’t honor Sanchez,” said Carlos Blanton, a history professor at Texas A&M University, who is writing a book about the educator. “Maybe it’s because he left, and you just don’t leave New Mexico.” Born in Albuquerque in 1906, Sanchez became a

public school teacher at a small rural school in Yrisarri, just outside of Albuquerque at the age of 16. Within six years, he became superintendent of the Ber nalillo County school district while taking classes at the University of New Mexico. It was this teaching experience among the children of poor Hispanic ranchers that he would later say sparked his mission to refor m the state’s educational system, particularly IQ testing of Hispanics and American Indians, which he viewed as racial bias. Eventually, Sanchez became what would be equivalent to the state’s secretary of education thanks to a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation while he also finished his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, said Blanton. But Sanchez clashed with the state’s governor for pushing a state equalization funding formula for schools and came under fire from some lawmakers for helping with a University of New Mexico professor’s survey on racial attitudes in schools, said Blanton. The highly publicized fights resulted in the state opting not to fund a Department of Education, ultimately leaving Sanchez without a job. “He was a boy genius but was damaged goods,” said Blanton.

commission to UNM to study the education and economic conditions of the state’s Spanish-speaking population, Sanchez wrote Forgotten People. It didn’t romanticize New Mexico, but rather focused on a population that was slowly being pushed aside by discrimination. The book drew attention from the University of Texas, which eventually of fered Sanchez a job. There, he wrote other books, became a national president of the League of United Latin American Citizens and corresponded with Marshall on desegregation strategy. Sanchez’s writings would be used in a number of desegregation cases leading up to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case, which would legally end “separate but equal” in public education. He died in 1972. Cynthia E. Orozco, a history professor at Eastern New Mexico University, said Sanchez is not well known in New Mexico because historians haven’t paid too much attention to the state’s 20th century history, focusing instead on its Spanish colonial heritage. “Hispanics want to take pride in their heritage and that’s the least controversial option,” said Orozco. Moises Venegas, a retired educator in Albuquerque, said bringing up Sanchez also brings up painful, unfinished business in New Mexico — namely, that of

educating the state’s poor Latino population. “I think a lot of what my grandfather talked about is still relevant today,” said Sanchez’s grandson, Mark Sprague, 58, of Austin, Texas. “I think we’d be honored if New Mexico finally recognized him.” Kennedy, Sanchez’s granddaughter, agreed that the family would love it should New Mexico finally recognize her grandfather. But she said the family won’t actively campaign for a school name or other monument. “I’m very proud to have him as my grandfather and I’m happy to continue his legacy as a teacher,” said Sanchez. “It’s just not like us demand something. Tata (her name for her grandfather) also didn’t seek recognition.” However, Greg Kennedy, Cynthia’s husband, and a pastor at St. John’s United

Methodist Church in Santa Fe, said it would be fitting if New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, who was born in Texas, is the one to finally honor the New Mexico-born civil rights leader.. At George I. Sanchez Elementary in Houston, the school has a portrait of Sanchez hanging in its hallway and a few newspaper articles on the educator behind a glass case. Principal Jesus Herrera said he believes Sanchez would be proud of his school since most of the students are immigrants from Mexico and the school ranks high in academic achievement. Yet, Herrera was surprised to discover that Sanchez was not wellknown in his home state of New Mexico. “I didn’t even know he was from New Mexico. I just assumed he was from Texas.”

Whitney Houston dies at 48 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Whitney Houston, who ruled as pop music’s queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died. She was 48. Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown. At her peak, Houston was the golden girl of the music industry. From the middle 1980s to the late 1990s, she was one of the world’s best-selling artists. She wowed audiences with ef fortless, powerful, and peerless vocals that were rooted in the black church but made palatable to the masses with a pop sheen. Her success carried her beyond music to movies, where she starred in hits like The Bodyguard and Waiting to Exhale. She had the per fect voice, and the per fect image: a gorgeous singer who had sex appeal but was never overtly sexual, who maintained perfect poise. She influenced a generation of younger singers,

from Christina Aguilera to Mariah Carey. But by the end of her career, Houston became a stunning cautionary tale of the toll of drug use. Her album sales plummeted and the hits stopped coming; her once serene image was shattered by a wild demeanor and bizarre public appearances. She confessed to abusing cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her once pristine voice became raspy and hoarse, unable to hit the high notes as she had during her prime. It was a tragic fall for a superstar who was one of the top-selling artists in pop music history, with more than 55 million records sold in the United States alone. She seemed to be born into greatness. She was the daughter of gospel singer Cissy Houston, the cousin of 1960s pop diva Dionne Warwick and the goddaughter of Aretha Franklin. Her decision not to follow the more soulful inflections of singers like Franklin drew criticism by some who saw her as playing down her black roots to go pop and reach white audiences. The crit-

icism would become a constant refrain through much of her career. She was even booed during the “Soul Train Awards” in 1989. In 1992, she became a star in the acting world with The Bodyguard. Despite mixed reviews, the story of a singer (Houston) guarded by a for mer Secret Service agent (Kevin Costner) was an international success. It also gave her perhaps her most memorable hit: a searing, stunning rendition of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” which sat atop the charts for weeks.

Roswell to vote on council seats, city judge and gross receipts tax JULIA BERGMAN RECORD STAFF WRITER

In a few short weeks, the future of Roswell’s leadership, for the next four years, will be determined. With six positions and 12 hopefuls slated to be on the March 6 ballot, only one seat is left uncontended. This year few stepped up to run against incumbents — one from every City Council ward is seeking re-election. Bob Maples, Steve Henderson, Judy Stubbs, Amarante Fresquez and Velasquez are all hoping to represent Wards I-V, respectively. Contenders include Juan Oropesa, longtime executive director of the Roswell Hispano Chamber of Commerce, who’s expressed interest in representing Ward I. Billy Wood is hoping to attain the Ward II seat. Jeanine Corn-Best has signed up to represent Ward III. Ward IV is the most contested, with Milburn Dolen and Savino Sanchez Jr. expressing an interest to represent it. Velasquez is uncontested in Ward V. All council seats up for representation have four-year terms. Municipal Judge Larry Loy is running for his second four -year term against



Kevin Utterback Roe. Early voting begins on Wednesday. The last day to vote absentee in person and to mail out an absentee ballot is March 2. A question, regarding the inclusion of a municipal infrastructure gross receipts tax to the city’s current gross receipts tax, will also be on the ballot. Mayor Del Jurney is reintroducing the proposal to add a MIGRT to the city’s current gross receipt tax. The addition of the tax would result in an increase of the city’s current gross receipts tax, which would shift from 7.125 percent to 7.25 percent or 12.5 cents for every $100 spent. It would apply to all taxable goods, excluding food or medicine, and is projected to create revenues of $1.2 million annually. Funds generated from the tax will go toward economic development as it is defined by the city’s Local Economic Development Act Ordinance No. 11-05. If the initiative is passed, the MIGRT would go into effect July 1. Election day is March 6, with polls opening at 7 a.m. and closing at 7 p.m. Elected officials will be sworn in on March 12 at 5 p.m.

Santorum, Romney sell selves to conservatives

WASHINGTON (AP) — GOP presidential rivals made contrasting appeals to conservatives Friday, with Mitt Romney saying he proved his mettle as Massachusetts governor and Rick Santorum saying Romney is so moderate that electing him would be a “hollow victory.” Their speeches to the Conservative Political Action Conference came as Santorum tries to convert his surprising caucus wins this week into a resilient, muscular campaign and Romney seeks to persuade conservatives that he won’t disappoint them. Santorum’s tack was unorthodox, and perhaps risky. Facing Republicans who desperately want to replace President Barack Obama, Santorum said it’s even more vital to put a conservative crusader into the White House. “We will no longer abandon and apologize for the policies and principles that made this country great for a hollow victory in November,” he said. If voters see that as a hint that it’s more important to be ideologically pure than to oust Obama, Santorum may have to explain more fully in the days ahead. Romney, speaking a few hours later, said his four -year record in Massachusetts proved that he will fight for conservative values against the toughest odds. “I know con-

servatism because I have lived conservatism,” he said. Veering briefly from his written text, he called himself “severely conservative.” But Romney skated past details of his administration that trouble some right-leaning groups, including requiring state residents to obtain health insurance. Without saying Romney’s name, Santorum said the former governor’s health care record would make it impossible for him to draw needed contrasts with Obama. He said Romney had created “the stepchild of Obamacare.” Saying the Obama-backed 2010 health care law “will crush economic freedom,” Santorum urged Republicans not to nominate “someone who would simply give that issue away in the fall.” Santorum warned Republicans against a premature emphasis on moderate voters, who could decide the presidential election in swing states. “We always talk about, ‘Oh, how are we going to get the moderates?”’ Santorum said. “Why would an undecided voter vote for a candidate of a party who the party is not excited about?” Romney alluded to his rivals obliquely, never saying their names. Presidential leadership “isn’t about getting a bill out of sub-

committee or giving a speech,” he said. “I am the only candidate in this race, Republican or Democrat, who has never worked a day in Washington.” His remarks appeared aimed at former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum, former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul, all of whom spent years in Congress. Gingrich was scheduled to address CPAC later Friday. Paul was not scheduled to address the conference. Romney tried to reassure the audience that antipathy to Obama will energize millions of voters this fall, an indirect way of saying the lukewarm reception he gets from some conservatives isn’t crucial. Obama “is the conservative movement’s top recruiter,” he said. Romney said he would cut federal spending like he cut state spending in Massachusetts, although he vowed not to touch military budgets. “I was a conservative governor,” he said. “I fought against long odds in a deep blue state. I understand the battles that we, as conservatives, must fight because I have been on the front lines.” Santorum and Romney criticized the Obama administration’s bid to require Catholic-affiliated employers to cover birth control in their health insurance plans. After

Santorum’s morning speech and before Romney’s afternoon address, Obama announced an update. He said religiousaffiliated employers will not have to cover birth control for their employees. Instead, the government will demand that insurance companies be directly responsible for providing contraception. Santorum, a Catholic with a strong record of fighting legalized abortion, said Obama is “telling the Catholic Church that they are forced to pay for things that are against their basic tenets and teachings.” “It’s not about contraception, it’s about economic liberty,” he said. Romney, a Mormon who once supported legalized abortion, vowed to reverse “every single Obama regulation that attacks our religious liberty and threatens innocent life.” His critics cite a 2005 interview in which Romney said rape victims deserved either access to or information about so-called morning after pills that some say are a form of abortion. Both men restated their standard criticisms of Obama. Romney called him “the poster child for the arrogance of government.”

Imagine for a second if you lost your ability to talk, listen, walk, see or develop a mental disorder. The idea is frightening and unimaginable. The following questions may be how would a person be able to manage with life’s new challenges? Choices center for independent living is an advocacy group for people with disabilities that offers services to consumers at no charge. Choices’ mission is to promote a society in which persons with disabilities control their environment and destiny through informed choice and self-identified goals of independence and is funded by the state of New Mexico and private donations. Choices offers members of the community with disabilities the opportunity to get independent living skills and training, information, referrals, individual and community advocacy, community integration from a nursing home, referral for accessible

affordable housing, technical assistance and education to individuals, other agencies and government entities on disability related issues. The staff at Choices knows what it is like to have disabilities; in fact half of the staf f has disabilities. This serves as an advantage to the clients. Several clients who come in are deaf and several of the staff members can communicate with them in sign language. The staff is capable of communicating with all their clients and is excellent at problem solving for their clients. They take on housing issues in finding affordable and accessible housing and help with the lengthy application process. They help clients with money management, budgeting, paying bills and writing checks. Home management is also important since some clients may not know how to manage their homes. They can learn how to cook, clean and keep their house at a manageable level. Some clients may have legal issues they need attending to. The staff can educate their clients on their rights as a person with a disability, and learn to advocate and speak out for themselves. Sometime clients who have to attend court may not fully understand what the court is saying or doing in proceedings, Choices can find an interpreter so the client may be fully aware and be able to understand fully. Some clients may want to go back to school or get employment, Choices can help provide referrals to help get the training and education they desire. Other clients may need their simple day-to-day assistive equipment and don’t have the funds to pay for them, Choices will find the funding to help get that equipment to their clients. Choices has an equipment loan bank where it keeps a supply of equipment on-site for the permanently as well as temporarily disabled.

Equipment can be loaned out for three months at a time. Some equipment that can be borrowed include, walkers, manual wheelchairs, crutches, bedside commodes, tub transfer benches and canes. Choices currently has eight advocates; six work in Chaves County, two are located in Hobbs and one in Carlsbad. Choices has been asked to expand to Clovis and Portales. There has been some talk at the state level that would expand the local Choices to work for advocacy for the deaf in southeaster n New Mexico, which would also include several Indian reservations. “It’s a big job, but we’re ready; the staff is passionate about their jobs and they are ready,” said Deanna Wolf, executive director of Choices. To date, Choices services 300 people in the community. Choices is looking towards developing more classes for their clients including sign language, cooking and money man-

Don’t let kids get wrapped up in wrong valentine’s message

Q: Valentine’s Day was a lot of fun when I was a kid. But that was a more innocent time. I’d like my child to have the same experience, but I don’t want to reinforce our culture’s misguided ideas about romance. What can I do?

Jim: In December I encouraged parents to diffuse the materialism of Christmas by teaching their kids about the historical St. Nicholas. And I’m pleased to report that history can also be your ally when it comes to Valentine’s Day!

According to Catholic Online, the original St. Valentine, Valentinus, lived during the reign of Emperor Claudius II at a time when the Roman army was involved in many bloody and unpopular military campaigns. Claudius was having difficulty recruiting soldiers, and he believed

the reason was that men did not want to leave their lovers or families. As a result, he cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome. Valentinus was a Christian priest who performed secret marriages in defiance of the emperor’s decree. As a result, he was apprehended and condemned to death, suffering martyrdom on Feb. 14, around the year 270 ( aint.php?saint_id=159).

While there is certainly “romantic” something about this story, it is not the self-centered, boyfriend- or girlfriendobsessed brand of romance that we associate with the modern observance of St. Valentine’s Day. Valentinus’ life exemplified a very different set of values, namely selflessness and sacrifice. And those are character traits that are certainly




worth encouraging in your child. With that in mind, you might also consider a few other activities to help your child maintain a healthy perspective on Valentine’s Day. For example, list a few characteristics that distinguish true love from mere infatuation. Place the lists side by side and have your child decide which set of qualities he or she most wants to characterize his or her life. Or, sit down and talk with your child about a romantic movie or TV show. Are the characters demonstrating infatuation

or real love? Shallow feelings or genuine intimacy? With a little guidance and creativity from you, Valentine’s Day can be both fun and educational for your kids. Supplementing your discussion with chocolate wouldn’t hurt, either! Q: My mother -in-law is extremely controlling and critical of my parenting. My husband seems oblivious to how much stress she causes me. How should I handle this? Juli: One reason why “in-law tension” can be so difficult is because it is not

primarily your relationship. Anything you do or say will impact your mother -inlaw’s relationship with your husband, so you probably feel like you are between a rock and a hard place.

I would first encourage you to view this as a marriage issue. You and your husband must decide together how you want to interact with his mother. How often should she come over? What comments will you tolerate? How will you respond if she is critical? Your question implies that you and your husband disagree about how you would answer these questions. Because your husband probably doesn’t recognize how controlling and critical his mother is of you, you may need to meet with a third party (such as a counselor or mentor) to talk this through. I would also encourage

you to consider why your mother-in-law acts the way she does. Her controlling and critical behavior is most likely a reaction to her fears and insecurities. Perhaps she views you as a threat to her relationship with her son. Or she may even be reacting to her own parenting failures. Remembering this may help you to respond with empathy rather than anger.

Chocolate’s a challenge for gardening Valentines

If chocolate’s the thing for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day, why give plain old candy when you can give a chocolate plant (Theobroma cacao)?

The challenge of chocolate

Growing chocolate from seed is difficult. Fresh, they are covered with what looks like a cottony mass that keeps them properly moist for sprouting. The covering is slimy, though, and starts to rot away as soon as the seeds are out of the pods. Still, you might want to give the seeds as a gardening challenge, perhaps nestled in a gift box on some moist, real cotton. To sprout, the seeds need warmth and well-drained soil. Fresh seeds are available online at and A chocolate plant that’s up and growing makes a more dramatic gift than a few seeds snuggled in cotton. (Plants are widely available online.) But caring for an already growing chocolate plant is still a challenge. Chocolate is native to the tropical lowlands of Central and South America within 20 degrees on either side of the equator. There, neither the temperature nor the humidity ever drops much below about 70. Contrast such tropical conditions with those in the average home in winter. Yes, indoor temperatures might hover at around 70, although many of us let the temperature drop at night. A bigger problem is humidity, which typically is less than 40 percent indoors in winter. Frequently misting the plant, standing the pot in a saucer of pebbles and water, and clustering it close to other plants all help to bring the humidity up. Chocolate naturally

grows as an understory tree, and even under cultivation is grown in shade. So providing sufficient light does not present much of a problem in growing a potted plant indoors. The plant won’t tolerate a dark room, though. Direct your Valentine to set the plant at a sunny window, which in midwinter in more northerly latitudes receives about the same amount of light as a shaded tree near the equator. As winter progresses and the northern sun loops higher in the sky, the plant needs to be pulled back from the window to keep the leaves from burning. An indoor chocolate plant appreciates an annual vacation to the “tropics.” Give it something close by moving it outdoors in dappled shade each summer to bask in buoyant air and high humidity.

Seed harvest is only the beginning

So much for growing chocolate; what about eating it? With good growing conditions, football-shaped pods a half-foot to a foot long will pop right out of the trunk or stems within about five years for a seedgrown plant, a couple of years for a nursery-bought


But this is not a fruit to pluck right off the tree and chomp on. First, there’s the hard shell. Second, the seeds — called cacao beans at this point — taste like “chocolate” only after some processing.

Cacao beans are converted to cocoa, then chocolate, by first letting the slimy covering fer ment as the beans are piled together and kept warm for about a week. After a few more days of drying, the chocolatey flavor starts to emerge.

Next, the seeds are roasted at about 270 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours. Finally, they’re ground up and treated with alkali to remove bitterness. Defatted and powdered, you have “cocoa”; with some fat, sweetener, and other ingredients such as milk, you have various kinds of “chocolate.”

A taste of history

Use of chocolate goes back to the Mayans, who considered it a gift from their god of air, Quetzalcoatl. The Spanish were the first Europeans to get hold of chocolate pods and, 50 years later, figured out what to do with them.

Combine crumbs and seasonings; toss with melted butter. Spoon onto onions. Arrange slices in large buttered baking dish. Bake in a 375° oven for 30 minutes or until tender. Makes 4 servings.

Grilled Onions

Separate into rings and toss with your favorite chopped or dried herbs and serve with steaks, sausage, seafood or chicken. Chop and mix into baked beans or into a homemade salsa for a great smokey flavor.

Romance and finance: 5 financial tips for couples This may sound like a heartless thought, but Valentine’s Day is tough on the wallet. Even if you skip buying bling for your beloved, the standard flowers and romantic dinner out can be a blow to your budget just when you’re recovering from end-of-the-year holiday spending. Consumers are expected to spend an average of $126 on gifts and treats for loved ones, up from $116 a year ago, according to the National Retail Federation. As a couple, should you risk wrecking the mood by talking about spending and money, on or just before a day dedicated to lovers? Short answer: Yes! “Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to revisit what you appreciate in the other person and it’s certainly a good time to talk about money — ideally before excessive spending derails your dinner out,” says Suzanna de Baca, vice president of wealth strategies at Ameriprise Financial.

Here are some financial tips for couples to help ensure that there are many more Valentine’s Days in their future: 1. Have a talk. If you are just beginning to commingle your money, have a conversation about goals and dreams and how to finance them. Revisit the topic regularly, and keep the discussion calm and non-confrontational. Call them money dates, or open forums on your finances. Don’t withhold any debts or accounts. 2. Make a plan. Put your priorities in writing and agree on target spending and saving amounts. Address monthly spending, big-ticket purchases, vacations, “fun stuff” and long-term savings. “Couples that create a workable and efficient financial plan significantly lower their anxiety levels and have more time and money for long-term romance,” says Bill Hardekopf, CEO of credit card comparison site 3. Commit to compro-

mise. Don’t let money disagreements with your partner fester. Go into the plan knowing you will need to compromise occasionally. Sometimes you have to sacrifice your position and let the other person be “right.” That’s OK -- you can take turns compromising. 4. Pay off debt. Almost nothing adds to financial stress more than carrying credit card and other debts. The sooner you pay it off, the sooner you can build up your savings. Talk about the remaining balance regularly with your spouse or partner, and make it a joint goal to zero it out. 5. Prepare for emergencies. Every couple should aim to build up an emergency fund of at least six months’ worth of living expenses. It will ease the burden on that inevitable day when one partner is in a fender-bender, has a laptop stolen or runs up an unexpected medical or dental bill.

Ohio building with ties to Wright brothers is eroding Roswell Daily Record

The former Gem City Ice Cream building at 1005 W. Third St. in Dayton, Ohio, has created significant interest because it was built around the first Wright Brothers bicycle shop.

CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio structure containing remnants of a two-story building where the Wright brothers rented space for their first bicycle shop has been declared a public nuisance and may eventually be demolished despite residents’ efforts to preserve it. Orville and Wilbur Wright, who became famous for making the first airplane flight near Kitty Hawk, N.C., on Dec. 17, 1903, sold, built and repaired bicycles in their hometown of Dayton and had several shop locations through the years. The brothers rented space for their first shop from 1892 to 1893 at the site where a vacant building now stands, according to Edward Roach, historian with the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. The city-owned structure — the Gem City Ice Cream Co. building — contains three exterior walls of the two-story building that housed the brothers’ shop, said Roane Smothers, principal planner for Dayton and part of its Landmark Commission staff. Dayton officials say demolition of the Gem City building might be necessary because it is falling apart and attempts to find

someone to provide the money and a viable plan to rehabilitate it have been unsuccessful. The Gem City building is considered a contributing structure to the city’s West Third Street Historic District, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The ice cream company started expanding and building additions at the site in 1914 and put a new facade on it, Smothers said. “The building has deteriorated, and if something is not done it will fall apart,” Smothers said. “At this point, the city is trying to get information out about it, and maybe someone will come forward with the money needed to save it.” He estimates rehabilitation would cost more than $1 million. Dayton resident Michael Perkins, who is leading the effort to save the building, said he believes much more of the original 1890s building exists than just three exterior walls. Perkins said interior walls and floors, arches and mosaic tiles remain from the original building. But Smothers said he has no evidence of that and the building’s physical history would have to be researched. Perkins is proposing

redevelopment, including restoring the Wright section to what it may have looked like when the brothers were there and adding Victorianstyle businesses, including an old-fashioned ice cream shop. Monica Snow, a vice president for Preservation Dayton Inc., said the group supports saving the building. “We are hoping to convince the city to use any funds for stabilizing the building, instead of tearing it down,” Snow said. Numerous other Dayton sites associated with the Wrights have been preserved. Those sites include: their fourth shop, a former home of Orville Wright, and the flying field where the brothers did their Daytonarea flight testing. All are part of the Dayton Aviation park. The fifth and final shop, where the Wrights built their first plane, was transported to automaker Henry Ford’s living-history museum in Dearborn, Mich., in 1936, Roach said. The city scheduled a public hearing Wednesday night as the first step in an 18-month process required before any demolition can proceed.

China’s export growth has declined steadily as Europe’s debt problems and high U.S. unemployment hurt demand for goods. But January was the first outright contraction compared with a year earlier since the 2008 crisis. Import growth has weakened as Beijing tightened lending curbs to cool an overheated economy and export industries bought less imported raw materials and components as foreign orders weakened. China’s rapid economic growth eased to a 2 1/2year low of 8.9 percent in the final quarter of 2011, down from 2010’s 10.3 percent. The International Monetary Fund is forecasting 8.2 percent growth this year but has warned that could be cut by nearly half if Europe, China’s biggest export market, suffers a severe fall in activity due to its debt woes. Private sector growth forecasts for 2012 are as low as 7.5 percent. curbs Construction

imposed to discourage overinvestment and cool surging housing prices have cut demand for cement, steel and other building materials. That is bad news for commodity suppliers that are counting on China to help drive global sales as demand elsewhere falters. In December, import growth fell to 11.8 percent from November’s 22.1 percent while export growth declined marginally to 13.4 percent. China’s electricity consumption, an indicator of activity, fell by 7.5 percent compared with a year earlier, the newspaper China Securities Journal reported earlier. That was the first decline since the 2008 crisis and, before that, since 2002, according to Nomura economist Zhiwei Zhang. “We therefore believe that this drop reflects a sharp slowdown in industrial production,” Zhang said in a report.

China trade falls amid weak demand and holiday

BEIJING (AP) — China’s trade suffered its biggest decline in January since the 2008 crisis — a new sign of weak global demand and a slowing domestic economy. Exports fell 0.5 percent from a year earlier to $149.9 billion, while imports were down 15 percent at $122.7 billion, customs data showed Friday. China’s politically sensitive global trade surplus tripled compared with a year earlier to $27.3 billion. Analysts expected January trade to fall due to the Lunar New Year holiday, the country’s most important holiday. Chinese exporters rushed out orders in December and then shut down for two weeks or more in January. But the import decline was sharper than expected, suggesting that even with the holiday factored in, the world’s second-largest economy is slowing markedly. China is a major buyer of iron ore, oil and other commodities and industrial components, meaning any downtur n

US faces tough fight in cash smuggling crackdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jeanette Barraza-Galindo conspicuously left her bags of teddy bears and throw pillows on a bus during an inspection at the TexasMexico border — and professed ignorance about the $277,556 of ficers found hidden inside. The bags were handed to her at a bus station, gifts to be given to a child upon her return to Mexico, she told investigators. The crime she pleaded guilty to — bulk cash smuggling — is increasingly drawing the attention and resources of federal authorities responsible for fighting drug trafficking across the border. Federal immigration authorities say their investigations have yielded more cash seizures and arrests in the past half-dozen years as criminals, sidestepping scrutiny from banks over electronic transfers, resort to using cash to conceal drug trafficking and move money to crime rings in Mexico and elsewhere. It’s similar to the tactic taken in fighting terrorism: crippling financing networks before the money ends up with leaders of drug cartels and trafficking rings. But the flow is hard to stop. Officials in both the U.S. and Mexico are realizing that criminal enterprises, just like other businesses, can’t operate without a steady cash stream, said David Shirk, director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego, which promotes scholarship of border issues. “We’re shifting our strategy to a more diverse strategy of not just going after bad guys and arresting them, but also going after their guns, going after their money,” he said. It’s illegal to try to smuggle more than $10,000 in undeclared cash across the border. Officials say the crime is often connected to other illegal activities including drug trafficking, gambling and credit card fraud. Money that’s seized is deposited into govern-

The problem is not new, but there are signs of heightened emphasis. The Obama administration says targeting bulk cash smuggling is a prong of its strategy against transnational crime. Congressional panels held hearings on the issue last year. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported more than $150 million in seized cash and 428 arrests in bulk cash smuggling investigations in fiscal year 2011, up from $7.3 million and 48 in fiscal year 2005, according to agency statistics. And a cash smuggling center in Ver mont that opened in 2009 and is run by ICE’s homeland security investigations has expanded operations, of ficials announced in December. But experts say measuring the impact of the beefed-up focus is tricky. It’s hard to track cash’s origin and destination — and investigators can’t always count on help from couriers, who may be more afraid cooperating than of spending a few years in prison. Plus, the amount seized represents a fraction of the total money at stake. Estimates cited by federal authorities suggest at least $18 billion in illicit proceeds is laundered across the southwestern border each year.

A 2010 report by the Government Accountability Of fice said staf fing and infrastructure at the border were limiting success in detecting large quantities of cash, and also highlighted another, continuing problem: the use of prepaid, stored value cards to move money. “I call this winning the battle, losing the war. Sure, $90 million sounds like a lot,” said Bruce Bagley, a University of Miami international studies professor who researches drug trafficking. “That’s nothing in comparison to the $19 to $39 billion that’s being returned” across the border. Cash smuggling, though a seemingly elementary form of money laundering, has emerged as a seductive medium for criminals as banks have become more sophisticated in spotting suspicious transactions. Cash has built-in advantages, too: It can be transferred without a trace and is instantly available. “The financial industry has done a much better job in terms of trying to keep out illicit money, and as a result the organizations adapt and then they go to some tried-and-true methods — and, that is, they’re bulking it up and sending it where it needs to go,” said Joseph Burke, chief of ICE’s National Bulk Cash

Smuggling Center in Vermont. Criminal organizations generally move contraband north across the border. The money they make, in turn, flows south. Burke said the money is often collected at consolidation hubs — perhaps a home in a residential neighborhood or a warehouse — and distributed among several couriers. Dividing the cash into smaller chunks means less money will be lost if one courier is arrested. Drug trafficking groups recruit relatives, associates and those lower in the organization — like those who might need to pay off debt to the cartel — sometimes dangling as incentive a percentage of the amount of money being transported. Couriers have assorted methods for moving the money, including strapping it to their body, hiding it in car compartments, stacking it on pallets and concealing it in vacuumpacked bags. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has increased the size of the border patrol and begun screening more vehicle traffic and southbound rail traf fic for weapons and cash since the Obama administration announced a new southwestern border initiative in March 2009, agency officials said at congressional

hearings last year. But the accountability of fice report said CBP needs better data on how successful its efforts have been and more consistent, full-time enforcement. The office said its investigators tested three border ports of entry, with shredded cash hidden in the car. At two sites, the report said, the cars were allowed to tur n around without being searched or the driver questioned. The vehicle wasn’t physically inspected at the third, though officers did use an X-Ray detector. Efrain Perez, a program manager with CBP, said patrol officers are vigilant about looking for suspicious behavior, but it’s impossible to catch every single person. “We know we’re can’t talk to 100 percent” (of drivers). It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack, but we put a lot of resources out there,” he said. Authorities can point to some successful, largescale investigations, including one — Operation Pacific Rim — that ICE credits with disrupting a powerful cocaine smuggling organization. In that investigation, authorities intercepted at seaports in Colombia and Mexico $41 million in shrink-wrapped cash hidden within shipments of fertilizer, and broadened it out to score arrests by locating the cartel’s smuggling routes. Meanwhile, activity continues steadily — mostly, but not always, along the southwestern border. The cases this month include a U.S. citizen from Mexico who was caught in California with $277,770 in cash, wrapped in bundles and concealed in the rear panels of the car, and the discovery in Illinois of $572,045 in a rental van driven by a man authorities said had a history of marijuana trafficking, according to a law enforcement bulletin obtained by The Associated Press.

Less earnings for Netflix

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Netflix’s fourth-quarter ear nings aren’t quite as good as the video subscription service told investors two weeks ago. Netflix lowered its net income 14 percent to account for a $9 million payment to be made as part of a legal settlement. The payment lowered Netflix’s fourth-quarter earnings from a previously reported $40.7 million to $35.2 million. The settlement covers claims made under the Video Privacy Protection Act, which prohibits rental services from sharing information about what their customers have been watching.

Wow! This is a sticky situation! Guess what? Sodas have different storage times, depending on content. Most cans and bottles have a “best by” date located somewhere on them, usually the bottom. Others probably have a production code. In those cases, you can call the manufacturer to find out the info. The soda doesn’t really expire or spoil. The “best by” date just means that the flavor is at its best by that date. Soda can lose carbonation. Diet drinks have a shorter storage life because the artificial sweeteners in them break down quicker. Hint: Do a taste test — you’ll know if the soda is flat! Heloise

First lady’s trips boost health — and her husband DALLAS (AP) — In just the past few days, she’s danced with cheering school kids, chatted with troops, swapped ideas with busy parents and engaged in a friendly cooking competition with stars from “Top Chef.” Michelle Obama is on a national tour to promote the second anniversary of her campaign against childhood obesity. The images have been disarming, intriguing and nonpolitical — just the type of thing her husband’s reelection campaign can’t get enough of. Five years to the day after Sen. Barack Obama announced he was running for president, Mrs. Obama’s travels this week offer fresh evidence of what an outsized role she’s assumed in the public eye and how powerful a political asset a first lady can be. In recent weeks Mrs. Obama has seemingly been

everywhere: Doing pushups with Ellen DeGeneres. Serving veggie pizza to Jay Leno. Playing tug-of-war with Jimmy Fallon in the White House. And now making a rare four -state tour — Arkansas, Florida, Iowa and Texas — to mark the two-year-point for her “Let’s Move” initiative. The first lady draws a line between her policy efforts on childhood obesity and her political activities. But such distinctions often are lost on the public. In an election year, it’s all to the good for Barack Obama that his popular wife is traveling the country promoting can’t-miss issues like healthy living and support for military families. To a more limited extent, Mrs. Obama also fills a more overtly political role by headlining private fundraisers that raise millions for her husband’s campaign, reaching out to supporters through confer-

ence calls to various states and shooting out periodic emails to campaign backers around the country. That part of her labors will increase considerably in the months to come. For now, though, the first lady’s most visible role is tied to her signature issue of fighting obesity, allowing her to connect with voters on an emotional level and relate to them as a mother who has struggled with some of the same challenges that other families face. “We’re constantly trying to make sure that what we do is on point with what is going on in people’s lives,” Mrs. Obama told parents this week as she chatted with them over low-calorie plates of chicken and pasta at an Olive Garden restaurant in Fort Worth. “I mean, at one point I was normal. I went to the grocery store and I did all that.”

First Lady Michelle Obama at the Kleberg-Rylie Recreation center in Dallas, Texas, Friday. Voters typically don’t pay attention to whether an event is political or not, says Democratic strategist Chris Lehane. “They’re paying attention

to whether they like what they’re seeing and whether they connect to it,” Lehane says. And with a first lady talking about issues that transcend the partisan

divide, he says, “the mere fact that they’re out there talking reflects well on their spouse.” And it can’t be lost on Obama’s political advisers that two of the four states on Mrs. Obama’s three-day tour — Iowa and Florida — will be political battlegrounds in the fall. While the president’s favorability ratings and those of Vice President Joe Biden slipped considerably over their first three years in of fice, Mrs. Obama’s have remained strong. Barack Obama’s favorability rating now stands at 51 percent, Biden’s at 38 percent. By contrast, 66 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the first lady, about even with her ratings on Inauguration Day, according to the Pew Research Center.

Mexican experts excited to find ancient home ruins

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The ruins aren’t particularly impressive, just some stone and clay footings for houses that probably supported walls of wood or clay wattle. And it’s that very ordinariness that has experts excited. The remnants being uncovered in the hills east of Mexico City at a spot known as Amecameca are from an ancient neighborhood — a home to regular folks. “What makes this important is that it is a residential area, not a ceremonial or religious site,” said Felipe Echenique, a historian for the National Institute of Anthropology and History, or INAH, which is in charge of reviewing the site. “In Mexico, we really

supported those ceremonial centers largely disappeared.

The housing compounds at Amecameca were apparently built by one of the still-unnamed cultures that populated the Valley of Mexico long before the Aztecs appeared in the area in 1325 and founded Tenochtitlan, the precursor to Mexico City.

People watch ruins on the outskirts of Amecameca, Mexico, on Wednesday.

Rebeca Lopez Reyes, an activist with the preservationist group Guardians of the Volcanos that helped stop roadwork that was damaging the site, said researchers for INAH have found ceramic pots and bones. And, she said, there is a stone serpent’s head, suggesting that the god Quetzacoatl, “the Feathered Serpent,” may have been worshipped there centuries

before the Aztecs paid him homage.

The few excavations of residential areas carried out so far in Mexico have yielded fascinating details.

In Teotihuacan, one of the biggest pre-Hispanic cities located northeast of Mexico City, some houses appear to have been illuminated by narrow doorways that opened onto central patios with shallow pools that acted as “water mirrors” to direct light inside the rooms. Techniques for building windows were apparently not yet known.

Investigators say similar discoveries could emerge from Amecameca, where so far only about 120 square yards (meters) of an estimated 5-acre (2-hectare) site have been excavated.
