Obama: ‘The state of our union is strong’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Uncompromising and politically emboldened, President Barack Obama urged a deeply divided Congress Tuesday night to embrace his plans to use government money to create jobs and strengthen the nation’s middle class. He declared Republican ideas for reducing the deficit “even worse” than the unpalatable deals Washington had to stomach during his first term.

VATICAN SHOWS POPE RETIREMENT IS FOR REAL

THE VOICE OF THE PECOS VALLEY

In his first State of the Union address since winning re-election, Obama conceded economic revival is an “unfinished task,” but he

claimed clear progress and said he prepared to build on it as he embarks on four more years in office. “We have cleared away the rubble of crisis, and we can say with renewed confidence that the state of our union is strong,” Obama said in an hour-long address to a joint session of Congress and a television audience of millions. With unemployment persistently high and consumer confidence falling, the economy remains a vulnerability for Obama and could disrupt his plans for pursuing a broader agenda, including

immigration overhaul, stricter gun laws and climate change legislation. Still, fresh off a convincing re-election win, Obama made clear in his remarks that he was determined to press his political advantage against a divided, defensive and worried Republican Party. Numerous times he urged Congress to act quickly on his priorities — but vowed to act on some issues on his own if they do not. Obama also announced new steps to reduce the U.S. military footprint abroad, See OBAMA, Page A3

Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposed listing of the lesser prairie chicken as an endangered species Tuesday during a public hearing held by the organization.

Before the hearing, Congressman Steve Pearce, RN.M., as well as state and local lawmakers and representatives of the oil and gas and agriculture industries spoke against the list-

SANTA FE (AP) — A bipartisan group of New legislators Mexico announced Tuesday that they have introduced a series of bills aimed at tackling what they consider to be a looming crisis as the state grapples with a persistent drought, dwindling water supplies and legal pressure from neighboring Texas. Among the changes, the bills would revamp the state’s water plan, boost the number of judges who handle water rights and spend millions of dollars on infrastructure. Senate Conservation Commission Chair man Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe, said the legislation is no “silver bullet” for dealing with New Mexico’s water problems. “It’s fair to say we’re barely scratching the surface,” he said during a news conference. “What’s important is that everything related to water See DROUGHT, Page A3

Police: Body found in burned House panel OKs cabin is likely Christopher Dorner health exchange plan

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — The extraordinary manhunt for the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of three murders converged Tuesday on a mountain cabin where authorities believe he barricaded himself inside, engaged in a shootout that killed a deputy and then never emerged as the home went up in flames. A single gunshot was heard from within, and a charred body was found inside. If the man inside proves to be Christopher Dorner, as authorities suspect, the search for the most wanted man in America over the last week would have ended the way he had expected — death, with the police pursuing him. Thousands of officers had been on the hunt for the former Navy reservist since police said he launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles

Police Department for his firing. They say he threatened to bring “warfare” to officers and their families, spreading fear and setting off a search for him across the Southwest and Mexico. “Enough is enough. It’s time for you to turn yourself in. It’s time to stop the bloodshed,” LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said at a news conference held outside police headquarters in Los Angeles, a starkly different atmosphere than last week when officials briefed the news media under tight security with Dorner on the loose. A short time after Smith spoke Tuesday, smoke began to rise from the cabin in the snow-covered woods near Big Bear Lake, a resort town about 80 miles east of Los See DORNER, Page A3

SANTA FE (AP) — Democratic lawmakers pushed ahead Tuesday with a proposal to establish a staterun health insurance exchange, despite objections from the insurance industry and Republican Gov. Susana Martinez. The House Health, Government and Indian Affairs Committee approved the measure on a party-line vote, with Democrats in favor and Republicans opposed. The exchange is envisioned as an online shopping center for people and small businesses to buy health coverage from private insurance companies. Those plans must have a package of health benefits tailored to New Mexico, and the exchange is to make it easier to compare plans by price, benefits and quality. Under federal law, the exchange must be ready for enrollment in October and be fully operating by next See HEALTH, Page A3

NKorea says it’s brandishing nukes to get US to talk peace

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The way North Korea sees it, only bigger weapons and more threatening provocations will force Washington to come to the table to discuss what Pyongyang says it really wants: peace. It’s no coincidence that North Korea’s third underground nuclear test — and by all indications so far its most powerful yet — took place Tuesday on the eve of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address. As perplexing as the tactic may seem to the outside world, it serves as an attention-getting reminder

to the world that North Korea may be poor but has the power to upset regional security and stability. And the response to its latest provocation was immediate. “The danger posed by North Korea’s threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community,” Obama said in a statement hours after the test. “The United States will also continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies.” The United Nations, Japan and South Korea also responded with predictable

anger. Even China, North Korea’s staunchest ally, summoned the North Korean ambassador to the Foreign Ministry for a rare dressing down. All this puts young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his circle of advisers right where they want to be: at the center of controversy and the focus of foreign policy. A year into his nascent leadership, he is referring to his father’s playbook to try forcing a change on North Korea policy in capital cities across the region See NKOREA Page A2

Vatican sends message: Pope’s retirement for real

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The papal ring will be destroyed, along with other powerful emblems of authority, just as they are after a pope’s death. The retiring Pope Benedict XVI will live in a monastery on the edge of the Vatican gardens and will likely even give up his beloved theological writing. The Vatican went out of its way Tuesday to declare that for Benedict, retirement means just that: Retirement. With speculation swirling about his future role, the Vatican’s chief spokesman explicitly stated that Benedict will not influence the election of his successor. And the Rev. Federico Lombardi deepened the sense of finality by saying that after his Feb. 28 abdication, “objects strictly connected” with the papal ministry will be “terminated.” Among these is the papal ring, used as a seal for documents, which is smashed upon a pope’s death. And while the first papal resignation in 600 years has left behind a vast uncharted territory to navigate — how does one address or even dress a retired pope? — the church sought to send a clear message that Benedict will not be pulling strings from behind the scenes. “The pope will surely say absolutely nothing about the process of the election,” Lombardi

told reporters at a briefing. “He will not interfere in any way.” The Vatican has already picked out the pope’s future home: A four-story building attached to a monastery on the northern edge of the Vatican gardens where cloistered nuns used to live. It has been under renovation for several months, although only a handful of Vatican officials knew that it would one day be Benedict’s retirement home. On Tuesday, construction materials littered the front lawn of the house and plastic tubing snaked down from the top floor to a cargo container. From a new name to this new home to the awkward reality of having a reigning pope and a retired one, the 85-year-old Benedict has plenty of decisions to make. Benedict said Monday he was stepping down because he simply no longer had the strength in mind or body to carry on. On Tuesday, Lombardi revealed for the first time that the pope has had a pacemaker for years and just had its battery replaced a few months ago. Although no date for a conclave to choose the next pope has been announced, it must begin within 20 days of his Feb. 28 retirement. That means a new pope will likely be elected by the College of Cardi-

— mostly notably in the U.S. The intent in Pyongyang is to get Washington to treat North Korea like an equal, a fellow nuclear power. The aim of the nuclear and missile tests is not to go to war with the United States — notwithstanding its often belligerent statements — but to force Washington to respect its sovereignty and military clout. During his 17-year rule, late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il poured scarce resources into Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs to use as bargaining chips in negotiations with Washington, Seoul and Tokyo. At the same time, he sought to build unity at home by pitching North Korea’s defiance as a matter of national pride as well as military defense. North Korea has long cited the U.S. military presence on the Korean Peninsula, and what it considers a nuclear umbrella in the region, as the main reason behind its need for nuclear weapons. North Korea and the U.S. fought on opposite sides of the bitter, three-year Korean War. That conflict ended in a truce in 1953, and left the peninsula divid-

nals by Easter — March 31 this year. The decision immediately raised questions about what Benedict would be called, where he would live — and how that might affect his successor. The Vatican’s senior communications adviser, Greg Burke, said Tuesday the fact that Benedict had chosen to live in a monastery is significant. “It is something that he has wanted to do for a while,” Burke said. “But I think it also suggests that his role is going to be a very quiet one, and that is important so you don’t have a situation of ... two different popes at the same time, and one influencing the other. “I think the obvious thing is when he says retirement, it really means retiring,” he said. The pope’s brother, Monsignor Georg Ratzinger, told reporters in Germany on Tuesday that Benedict was planning to stay out of the public eye and will probably even stop writing — one of the favorite pursuits of the brainy theologian. As for the pope’s new name, Burke said Benedict would most likely be referred to as “Bishop of Rome, emeritus” as opposed to “Pope Emeritus.” Lombardi also said Benedict would take some kind of “emeritus” title.

ed by heavily fortified buffer zone manned by the U.S.-led U.N. Command. Sixty years after the armistice, North Korea has pushed for a peace treaty with the U.S. But when talks fail, as they have for nearly two decades, the North Koreans turn to speaking with their weapons. With each missile and nuclear test, experts say North Korea is getting closer to building the arsenal it feels it needs to challenge Washington to change what it considers a “hostile” policy toward the longtime foe. In 2008, after years of negotiations led by China, North Korea agreed to stop producing plutonium and blew up its main reactor northwest of the capital. But in 2009, just months after Obama took office for his first term, Pyongyang fired long-range rocket carrying a satellite, earning U.N. condemnation and sanctions that North Korea accused Washington of initiating. In protest, Pyongyang conducted its second nuclear test and revealed it had a second way to make atomic bombs: by enriching uranium. With nuclear negotiations stalled, North Korea forged ahead making missiles designed to reach U.S. shores and worked toward building

Other Vatican officials said it would probably be up to the next pope to decide Benedict’s new title, and wouldn’t exclude that he might still be called “Your Holiness” as a courtesy, much as retired presidents are often referred to as “President.” It was not even clear whether the retired pope will retain the name Benedict, or revert to being called Joseph Ratzinger again. Benedict had been widely expected to issue his fourth

a bomb small enough to mount on it — less with an actual attack in mind but to brandish as a warning to the wartime foe. In carefully choreographed North Korea, timing is everything, and February is proving to be a strategic month for a North Korea provocation. China and Japan have new, largely untested leaders still in the process of formulating their government policies. A provocation during the last days of Lee Myung-bak presidency in Seoul gives Pyongyang the chance at one last jab at the conservative leader while leaving open the possibility of a new relationship with incoming President Park. And it’s the start of Obama’s second ter m; his new secretary of state, John Kerry, took office just weeks ago. North Korea’s nuclear test is likely to drive a tightening of U.N. sanctions intended to restrict its nuclear and missile programs, but experts say the ef fectiveness of such steps is largely reliant on the North’s chief trading partner and source of aid, China, implementing the sanctions and using its economic leverage to pressure its ally. China has historically been reluctant to do so.

Man lifts two baby monitors from Kmart Shoplifting

Police responded to Kmart, 1705 S. Main St., Monday, after a man described as Hispanic with tattoos on his face removed two baby monitors, valued at $290, placed them under his arms and tried to leave the store without paying. The presence of the monitors caused alar ms to sound at which time he ran. An employee chased the subject two blocks before losing him; however, the subject dropped his cell

phone during the chase.

Already, Benedict was changing his schedule to take into account his new circumstances. He had been scheduled to go to a church on Rome’s Aventine hill for the annual Ash Wednesday service starting the church’s Lenten season this week; the service will take place in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome instead.

Prostitution bill clears first legislative hurdle

SANTA FE (AP) — A proposal that would modernize New Mexico law to allow prosecutors to charge people who run online prostitution websites cleared its first legislative hurdle Tuesday. The push to crack down on prostitution rings based in cyberspace stems from a case in which two aging college professors were accused of helping run a prostitution website. Just last week, the New Mexico Supreme Court denied a request from prosecutors to continue pursuing the case against former University of New Mexico president F. Chris Garcia and retired Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor David C. Flory. The court ruled that nothing in state law made the professors’ website illegal. Experts have said decades-old laws in New Mexico and other states make it difficult for authorities and prosecutors to go after prostitution-linked websites because the laws don’t necessarily outlaw the practice in cyberspace. Most states’ laws only address street prostitution and brothels, they said. Rep. Tim Lewis, R-Rio Rancho, said his bill aims to close the loophole. It would add language making the promotion of prostitution using “an electronic, virtual or online forum or an Internet website” illegal.

with 34,000 American troops withdrawing from Afghanistan within a year. And he had a sharp rebuke for North Korea, which launched a nuclear test just hours before his remarks, saying, “Provocations of the sort we saw last night will only isolate them further.”

In specific proposals for shoring up the economy in his second term, an assertive Obama called for increased federal spending to fix the nation’s roads and bridges, the first increase in the minimum wage in six years and expansion of early education to every American 4-yearold. Seeking to appeal for support from Republicans, he promised that none of his proposals would increase the deficit “by a single dime” although he didn’t explain how he would pay for his programs or how much they would cost.

In the Republican response to Obama’s address, rising GOP star Marco Rubio of Florida came right back at the president, saying his solution “to virtually every problem we face is

January. Rep. Mimi Stewart, DAlbuquerque, said the proposal was the product of several weeks of negotiations with the Martinez administration over how to implement an exchange operated by the New Mexico Health Insurance Alliance, a nonprofit public corporation established in 1994 to provide access to insurance for small businesses and some individuals. Stewart and other Democrats contend the Legislature must approve changes in state law for the exchange to have the power to operate and meet federal requirements for serving uninsured New Mexicans. The Martinez administration initially had maintained it could set up an exchange without legislation by using the alliance, but it has been negotiating with lawmakers to avoid a possible court fight over the issue. However, differences remain between Democrats and the governor — particularly over the powers of the exchange’s proposed governing board. “We would like to move

for Washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more.” Sen. Rubio said presidents of both parties have recognized that the free enterprise system brings middle-class prosperity. “But President Obama?” Rubio said. “He believes it’s the cause of our problems.” Still, throughout the House chamber there were symbolic displays of bipartisanship. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., arrived early and sat with Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., just returned in January nearly a year after suffering a debilitating stroke. As a captain in the National Guard, Duckworth lost both her legs while serving in Iraq in 2004. A few aisles away, the top two tax writers in Congress, Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Sen. Max Baucus, DMont., sat together. But as a sign that divisions still remain, three of the most conservative Supreme Court justices skipped Obama’s speech. Six of the nine attended. Missing were Justices Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito. Jobs and growth dominated Obama’s address. Many elements of his economic

GENERAL

blueprint were repacked proposals from his first term that failed to gain traction on Capitol Hill. Standing in Obama’s way now is a Congress that remains nearly as divided as it was during the final years of his first term, when Washington lurched from one crisis to another. The president implored lawmakers to break through partisan logjams, asserting that “the greatest nation on Earth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crisis to the next.” “Americans don’t expect government to solve every problem,” he said. “They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can.” Yet Obama offered few signs of being willing to compromise himself, instead doubling down on his calls to create jobs by spending more government money and insisting that lawmakers pay down the deficit through a combination of targeted spending cuts and tax increases. But he offered few specifics on what he wanted to see cut, focusing instead on the need to protect programs that help the middle class, elderly and poor.

is dismal, rivers and reservoirs have reached historic lows and forecasters said more hot, dry weather is in store. New Mexico is also locked in a legal battle with Texas over sharing of the Rio Grande, which supplies water to thousands of farmers in both states. One of the bills being considered during New Mexico’s 60-day legislative session calls for studying supply and

demand issues along with the economic consequences of having such a limited water supply. “The bottom line is in this state, a desert state, future economic development turns with water,” said Sen. John Arthur Smith, D-Deming, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Smith warned that New Mexico won’t be able to attract new businesses or grow the ones it has if the state has no water.

to a more market-driven model,” Matt Kennicott of the Human Services Department told the committee. Insurance company representatives echoed that objection, as did several GOP committee members. The legislation would allow the exchange’s governing board to decide whether a health plan, if it met federal and state standards, would be offered through the exchange. Kennicott and insurance industry officials said any qualified health plan should be available through the exchange’s marketplace. The state insurance regulator will determine whether health plans provide necessary benefits and meet other requirements. Kennicott said the administration hoped to continue negotiations with lawmakers. The legislation will revamp the governing board of the alliance, which Stewart said was currently too heavily tilted in favor of the insurance industry. There would be a 13member governing board under the proposal approved by the committee. Nine of those would represent small employers and their employees.

There would be one consumer representative and one board member representing the insurance industry. The cabinet secretary of the Human Services Department would serve on the board along with the state’s insurance superintendent, who could vote only to break ties. The governor would appoint seven of the board members, including the department secretary, and legislators would name five members. “The governor gave a bunch. We gave a bunch, and came up with a compromise,” said Stewart. The legislation faces a long journey in the Democratic-controlled Legislature. It must clear another House committee before reaching the 70-member House for a vote. It also would need to pass the Senate. Nearly 200,000 New Mexicans may be able to buy health insurance through the exchange between 2014 and 2020. Some uninsured won’t need to use the exchange because they will become eligible for health care through Medicaid, which New Mexico is expanding under terms of the federal health care law that provides for insurance exchanges.

Pearce said the proposed listing threatens the livelihood of all New Mexicans, particularly those in the industries of oil and gas, agriculture, ranching and mining. The oil and gas industry provides about $1 billion a year into the state's budget, he said, most of which goes toward funding education. “It’s an issue that’s pertinent to everyone,” he said. State lawmakers unable to attend the rally or the hearing sent representatives or video messages expressing their opposition to the listing. At the rally, attendees carried signs reading, “Our jobs aren’t chicken feed” and “Oil + Gas = Education.” After each speaker’s presentation, retired teacher Brenda Jaquess clapped and cheered from her seat, even giving a standing ovation to some. “I’m concerned about the land grab in this country all over,” she said. “I’m just afraid we’re going to lose our way of life. I really appreciate Rep. Pearce for taking this up.” Speakers and attendees of the rally were just as vocal at the public hearing, which featured a panel including Charna

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Lefton, assistant regional director for the Service’s External Affairs; Michelle Shaughnessy, the assistant regional director for ecological services in the Service’s Southwest district; and Dr. Benjamin Tuggle, regional director for the Service’s Southwest region. The first to speak, Pearce implored the agency to be more thorough when it considers the scientific research on which it bases decisions, as the research used to list the spotted owl more than 20 years ago — with much damage done to the U.S. logging industry — he said has recently come into question. Tuggle agreed that the Service had “not done the best job we could have in the past,” but said it was interested in hearing from the public and working with landowners on conservation efforts, as it had done in the case of the dunes sagebrush lizard. “It’s the people that enact the conservation that makes the difference,” he said. Various members of state and local agencies and organizations appealed to the Service to not list the species, saying the state and landowners already engage in conservation efforts. Many also criticized the research on which the proposal is

based. “Science does not support this listing,” said Anthony Parra, deputy director of the New Mexico Department of Agriculture. The region’s drought may be more of a threat to the species than other factors, Curry County Commissioner Wendell Bostwick said, but “you can’t make it rain.” The hearing continued 30 minutes past its scheduled two hours, in an effort to give more attendees a chance to speak. Lefton encouraged those who would like to express their opinion to submit written comments either by mail or online. The proposed rule is available online at Regulations.gov, as Docket No. FWS-R2-ES-2012-0071. Comments may be submitted on this site.

Angeles. Flames then engulfed the building — images that were broadcast on live television around the world. TV helicopters showed the fire bur ning freely with no apparent effort to extinguish it. “We have reason to believe that it is him,” said San Ber nardino County sherif f’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman, adding that she didn’t know how the fire started. She noted there was gunfire between the person in the cabin and officers around the home before the blaze began. Until Tuesday, authorities didn’t know whether Dorner was still near Big Bear Lake, where they found his burned-out pickup last week. Around 12:20 p.m. Tuesday, deputies got a report

of a stolen pickup truck, authorities said. The location was directly across the street from where law enforcement set up their command post on Thursday and not far from where Dorner’s pickup was abandoned. The owner of the vehicle taken Tuesday described the suspect as looking similar to Dorner. A warden for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife traveling down Highway 38 recognized a man who fit Dor ner’s description traveling in the opposite direction. The officer pursued the vehicle and there was a shooting at 12:42 p.m. in which the wildlife vehicle was hit numerous times and the suspect escaped on foot after crashing his truck. After holing up in the cabin, there was a second gunbattle with San Ber nardino County deputies, two of whom were shot. One died and the

other was expected to live after undergoing surgery. “We’re heartbroken,” Big Bear Lake Mayor Jay Obernolte said of the deputy’s death and the wounding of his colleague. “Words can’t express how grateful we are for the sacrifice those men have made in defense of the community and our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families.” The man believed to be Dorner never came out of the cabin, and a single shot was heard inside before the cabin was engulfed in flames, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. The official later told the AP that a charred body was found in the burned cabin. The of ficial requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. Officials were waiting for the fire to burn out before approaching the ruins to search for a body.

OPINION

Reducing gun violence requires thinking outside the box

SANTA FE — Last week a girl was shot on her way home from a Chicago public school. It was a bigger deal than usual because the week before she had been a majorette in the inaugural parade. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was asked the usual question about what could be done about guns and violence. His answer was anything but the usual diatribe about violent movies and video-games. Mayor Emanuel said, “We need to teach these kids values in high school.” What? The interviewer didn’t have time for a follow up. T eachers used to sneak in some values education in school but then in the 1960s the U.S. Supreme Court said that sounded too much like religion so they drew some pretty sharp lines between church and state. In my opinion we had quite

good morals back then, even in Silver City, where much of the student body was either children of miners or cowboys. Maybe they feared that we listened to too much Buddy Holly, Big Bopper. Roy Orbison or Elvis Presley. My father was president of the National Education Association in 1951-2. The book he carried along with him every time he made a speech was “Moral and Spiritual Values in Education.” He quoted from throughout the book. The first sentence of the massive statement of the Education-

Roswell Daily Record

al Policies Commission of the National Education Association states that the purpose of education is the development of moral and spiritual values. How far we have come from that belief system. Twenty years ago, U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici, Tom Udall, the Roswell School District and many other New Mexicans were part of a new movement called Character Counts which aimed at avoiding the divide between church and state created by the Supreme Court. I wrote a lot about it and Domenici had a staffer assigned to get together with me to promote it more in New Mexico. It never happened but the organization still exists and could be a good answer to Mayor Emanuel’s cry for help. We’ve already talked about some proposed solutions that won’t work. The first is register-

ing guns. If 99 percent of all guns are registered, just as many shootings will occur. If 99 percent of all people judged mentally incompetent to own a gun, in fact have no gun, just as many shootings will be carried out by the quiet guy next door, whom neighbors never thought would do such a thing. If no criminals own a gun, according to records, just as many people will be shot. If records show no one in the nation owns a gun, people still will be shot. We must realize we live in a country where people love guns and believe that might makes right. T elevision would not broadcast 10 minutes of murder and mayhem before they tell us what else is happening in the world unless polls and focus groups indicated that violence is what people like to watch the best.

Behavior modifications such as Character Counts will help change this but it will take generations. Face it. Our entire country is still Wild West. Ask a foreigner. They’ve noticed. But they often admit to liking it also. Wild West trips, novels and movies are popular internationally. It is said Hitler kept a Wild West novel on his bedside table. Finally, why do so many people turn in guns when a city has such a program? Sometimes gun returners do so without receiving anything for their guns. They just say take them. I don’t want them anymore. Gun dealers often will buy people’s guns, especially if they don’t have the particular gun in stock.

Tribute to WWII’s first heroes

Whenever a historian, an aviation buff or anyone else talks about the Doolittle raid, America’s daring attack on five Japanese cities in April 1942, the word “first” comes up a lot. The raid was America’s first counterstrike after Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was the first time fliers had tried to launch B-25 bombers from an aircraft carrier. The huge B-25 needed a longer runway for takeoff than a carrier could provide. It was the first time Japan, until then the aggressor in the Pacific, had been bombed. Craig Nelson titled his 2002 book about the Doolittle raid “The First Heroes.” Several books, in fact, have been written about the air assault led by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle. But residents of the Florida coast already know the basics. Doolittle’s raiders trained for their top-secret mission in March 1942 at a Florida base then called Eglin Field. The raiders gathered in remote corners of the base, far from prying eyes, to practice short-run takeoffs in B-25s. They had to be sure they could fly the bulky planes off a carrier. On April 18 they did it for real. They took off from a carrier east of Japan and bombed Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Nagoya and Kobe. Then they flew on to enemy-occupied China. Most of them came back alive. Some didn’t. “Flags of Our Fathers” author James Bradley called the Doolittle raid “the original ‘Mission Impossible’ of World War II.” The mission’s survivors have dwindled over the years but have gathered for regular reunions. That tradition will end this April. The four still-active raiders decided in October the upcoming reunion would be their last. “Looking at their health and that this is where they trained for the mission, we thought this would be fitting for the final public reunion,” said Tom Casey, business manager for the Doolittle Raiders. This may well be the final gathering of World War II’s first heroes. Let’s welcome them back to the place where their great adventure began. Guest Editorial The Northwest Florida Daily News

TODAY IN HISTORY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Today is Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, the 44th day of 2013. There are 321 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight On Feb. 13, 1943, during World War II, the U.S. Marine Corps Women’s Reserve was officially established. On this date In 1542, the fifth wife of England’s King Henry VIII, Catherine Howard, was executed for adultery. In 1741, Andrew Bradford of Pennsylvania published the first American magazine. “The American Magazine, or A Monthly View of the Political State of the British Colonies” lasted three issues. DEAR DOCTOR K: My wife is in her late 70s. Lately she appears very tired and agitated in the evenings. I talked to a doctor friend who said she might be “sundowning.” What is sundowning, and what can we do about it? DEAR READER: Some older people have trouble concentrating, grow agitated or even confused, and become especially fatigued at the end of the day. This phenomenon is known as “sundowning” because its effects tend to coincide with sunset — usually occurring in the late afternoon into the evening, then settling down late at night. Sundowning behavior commonly occurs in people with Alzheimer’s disease, but it can also occur in older people without Alzheimer’s disease or other types of demen-

Prayer Breakfast wrong venue for politics Our politics have become so polarized and corrupted that a president of the United States cannot even attend an event devoted to drawing people closer to God and bridge partisan and cultural divides without being lectured about his policies. Last Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., Dr. Ben Carson, director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and a 2008 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, broke with a 61-year-old tradition and publicly disagreed with some of the president’s policies, such as “Obamacare,” taxation and the national debt.

tia. Sundowning is more likely to occur in an unfamiliar environment in a dark place. I had a patient who never experienced sundowning at home, but sometimes when she and her husband traveled, it would happen in a hotel room at night. Sundowning occurs quite often in hospitalized patients. It can lead to problems

Sundowning isn’t an illness; it’s a temporary condition, and we don’t entirely understand what causes it. One explanation is that by late afternoon, some older people have difficulty coping with the accumulation of stresses that build over the course of the day. Here are some ways you and your wife can alleviate the effects of sundowning: — Keep a daily log and jot down events that seem to trigger symptoms.

policies, but the National Prayer Breakfast is billed as one of the few nonpolitical events in a very political city. Each year, the cochairs, one Democrat and one Republican from either the House or Senate, put aside their political differences, as they do in weekly gatherings, to pray for the nation’s leaders. Carson, who spoke at the same event several years ago, has a compelling and inspirational personal story. He and his brother grew up in Detroit. His parents divorced when he was 3. His mother kept an eye on her children and made them turn off the TV and read books. Carson said he did poorly in

school and was mocked by classmates until he later caught the learning bug. He retold part of that story, but it was overwhelmed by his criticism of the president’s policies. Carson is a great example of what perseverance can accomplish and his success is a rebuke to the entitlement-envygreed mentality. By lowering himself to mention policies with which he disagrees, he diluted the power of a superior message. His remarks were inappropriate for the occasion. It would have been just as inappropriate

Urban ‘event’ attendance on Feb. 6 noteworthy Roswell Daily Record

The Feb. 6 urban/community resources event last week saw larger than usual veteran attendance as more than 350 veterans and family members were able to take advantage of information and resources provided by local community service agencies and Veterans Affairs representatives. Additionally, local veterans advocates were able to discuss with VA representatives various medical and transportation delivery areas in need of improvement or upgrading. VA decision makers expressed the desire to work with local veterans to find a “fix” for local medical delivery problems. Several discussions during the day between vet advocates and the VA involved local urgent care/emergency care, local mental health services and the veterans’ transportation service. Suffice it to say, the more local care is established, the less trans-

portation services are needed. This week, I’ll finish the critique of Albuquerque VA’s “services fact sheet” I started last Wednesday. While oft times critiques are considered to be “negative,” constructive criticism brings about beneficial changes and correction of critical parts within the health care delivery “machinery.” Last week, we addressed how “access to primary care” desperately needs better access to urgent/emergency care. In addition to last week’s example, one of our local vets had been scheduled for a medical evaluation following blood draws, an MRI, X-rays, etc. After driving to Albuquerque, he found that his MRI and Xrays were not “in the system.” He was instructed to return home and to come back after his missing diagnostics were found. He did this three more times

before he said, “I can’t keep doing this. I’m not going back up there again!” Access to local fee-based care has been tenuous to say the least. Way too many veterans have reported they were instructed to either drive all the way to Albuquerque for medical care, or go to the local emergency room. Way too many times, those going to the emergency room encountered denial of payment by the VA following treatment. Access to local mental health urgent care issues has been an ongoing problem. One example is a local PTSD veteran who “crashed

and burned” just recently, but found a dead end when his spouse was unable to get him immediate attention. After following the “fact sheet” procedures, she was told an appointment could be made (15 days from that date), or he could go to the emergency room. When asked if the VA would pay for the emergency room visit, the response was, “we can’t guarantee that.” Next, a phone call to the national VA “mental health helpline” yielded a suggestion to call the nearest Vet Center, which they stated was in Las Cruces. A very appropriate comment by the helpline consultant was, “Wow! You guys are in the middle of nowhere!” Fortunately, the vet and his spouse were able to get immediate help from a neighbor (retired mental health hospital employee). To shorten this critique, here are some hot point statements found in the

fact sheet. “Home-based primary care (long-ter m primary care to chronically ill veterans in their own homes) is not available for veterans receiving care with the Artesia VA CBOC.” “Home telehealth services are available as an adjunct to primary care.” Now, I am a huge fan of telehealth services. However, in all fairness, veterans presenting with spiked fever, broken bones, acute abdominal problems, etc. need face-to-face medical care. That’s where local urgent care/emergency care (reimbursed by the VA) is a must. “If, after evaluation by the physician, there is a documented medical opinion the travel may produce deleterious (note: Websterabusive, injurious) in health effects that negate the benefits of the service provided, fee basis care will be considered.” I am not sure this policy/procedure has been very ef fective,

Pet of the Week

given the large number of “negative decision” cases I have encountered.

“Except in a life-threatening emergency, a veteran should first seek care through the VA primary care clinic in Artesia.” As stated earlier, there is a lot of controversy surrounding this process. Veterans report they seem to hit a “brick wall” when trying to get urgent/emergency care locally. We’ll spend more time on this subject in a future column.

Local advocates currently dealing with the VA have expressed confidence that they can negotiate adjustments, corrections or whatever else necessary to solve our local medical delivery needs, while avoiding pronounced negativity that has grown over the last several years. Is this a new day? I sincerely hope so. God bless.

had he praised the president’s policies. The president had a right to expect a different message about another Kingdom. I’m wondering if the president felt drawn closer to God, or bludgeoned by the Republican Party and the applauding conservatives in the audience (there were many liberals there, too, as well as people from what organizers said were more than 100 nations and all 50 states). In 1996, radio personality Don Imus was the main speaker at the Radio and Television Correspondents Association annual banquet in Washington where he made sexually suggestive comments in front of President Clinton and the first lady. I asked White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers at the time if I was being too puritanical or did she also think Imus’ remarks were inappropriate. She agreed they were. Whatever happened to propriety? If Carson wanted to voice his opinion about the president’s policies, he could have done so backstage. Even better, he might have asked for a private meeting with the man. As a fellow African American who faced personal challenges and overcame them, the president might have

welcomed Dr. Carson to the White House. Instead, Carson ambushed him. Carson should publicly apologize and stop going on TV doing “victory laps” and proclaiming that reaction to his speech was overwhelmingly positive. That’s not the point. While many might agree with his positions (and many others don’t as shown by the November election results), voicing them at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of the president was the wrong venue. Organizers for this event tell speakers ahead of time to steer clear of politics, but Carson apparently “went rogue” on them. I’m told organizers were astonished and disapproving of the critical parts of Carson’s keynote address. The breakfast is supposed to bring together people from different political viewpoints and cultures. It is supposed to bridge divides, not widen them. If this and future presidents think their policies will be prey for political opponents at the prayer breakfast, they might decide not to come. That would be too bad for them and too bad for the country. (Write to Cal Thomas at: Tribune Media Services, 2225 Kenmore Ave., Suite 114, Buffalo, N.Y. 14207.

Sundowning is more common in older people than you might think. Fortunately, it’s not usually a sign of a serious underlying problem. But it can lead to problems, like falls and fractures, so try some of the things that you and she can do yourselves. If they don’t help, ask her doctor if testing of her intellectual function might be required. But I’ll bet that won’t prove necessary.

Wisconsin tribe threatens Walker jobs project

AP Photo

Cyrus Hester, an environmental specialist with the Bad River Tribe of Lake Superior Chippewa, hold chunks of iron oxide and iron sulfide in the tribal offices in Odanah, Wisc., Jan. 28.

ODANAH, Wis. (AP) — For generations the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa has quietly carved out a hardscrabble existence in the evergreen forests and sloughs along what people here call the Big Water, living off wild rice, fish and game. Little has changed over the decades. They grapple with poverty every day. Their casino is tiny, their homes aging and weatherbeaten. But they have their land and their water and that’s always been enough.

Now, though, tribal members find themselves in the path of a major effort to create new jobs in Wisconsin. Their lifestyle may turn out to be the most formidable obstacle yet for a Republican governor determined to show that he can ramp up the state’s economy. Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-controlled Legislature are pushing to bring a huge iron mine to the Bad River’s doorstep and revive an industry that has been dormant for nearly 50 years. Conservationists fear the mine

Hacker warns of zombies in Montana

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A Montana television station’s regular programming was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse. The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station Monday. KRTV says on its website the hackers broadcast that “dead bodies are rising from their graves” in several Montana counties. The alert claimed the bodies were “attacking the living” and warned people not to “approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.” The network says there is no emergency and its engineers are investigating. A call to KRTV was referred to a Montana Television Network executive in Bozeman. Jon Saunders didn’t immediately return a call for comment. The Great Falls Tribune reports the hoax alert generated at least four calls to police to see if it was true.

would pollute the area, but supporters disagree and are fasttracking a bill to clear the way. In his two years in office, Walker has rolled over his Democratic adversaries and beaten a recall attempt, but he now faces a different kind of opponent. Though only 1,000 members live on the reservation, the tribe has legal status as a sovereign nation and could tie up the project in court, depriving Walker of his signature job creation achievement as he prepares for re-election. “We’re not going to let it happen,” tribal elder Joe Rose Sr. said. “The (Chippewa) tradition is to look seven generations ahead. We ask ourselves what we’re leaving for those unborn. Will there be clean water and air? Will there be any pristine wilderness left?” The issue has inflamed the tension between the state’s beloved outdoor traditions and the need for paychecks. Many residents of the surrounding counties, where unemployment ranges up to 12 percent, have latched onto promises of hundreds of jobs on-site; backers say there would be thousands more for heavy equipment manufacturers and suppliers across the state. “Everybody’s broke around here,” said Ken Scribner, a 47year-old unemployed construction worker from Mellen, a town of about 800 people on the mine site’s western edge. “We need

some money.” How the collision of cultures can be resolved, short of years of litigation, is unclear. Northwestern Wisconsin is a different world than Milwaukee, the state’s largest city and a manufacturing hub. This is an untamed place, laced with secluded lakes, snow-frosted forests, swamps and towns separated by miles of lonely two-lane roads. Iron mining was once the area’s lifeblood, but the last mine closed in 1965 as the steel industry shifted to lower-grade ore. The region’s economy has limped along ever since, relying on tourism even as abandoned buildings and mounds of waste rock served as forlorn reminders of better days. Now, though, mining company Gogebic Taconite is considering a new mine in the Penokee Hills, which stretch from the northern Wisconsin woods to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Plans call for blasting away 4 1/2 miles of ridge line to create a massive pit mine. The company hopes to ship ore to take advantage of rising domestic prices. The Legislature is poised to limit public challenges and allow mining operations to store waste near lakes, ponds and rivers. The measure also contains a general presumption that any damage to wetlands is necessary. Walker, who has been struggling to deliver on a campaign pledge to

create 250,000 new jobs before he launches his 2014 re-election bid, extolled the project in his recent State of the State address. He even surrounded himself with hard-hatted union members he said want to work at the mine during the speech. But the Bad River reservation lies just north of the mine site, where the Bad River empties into Lake Superior. According to lore, the tribe settled in the forests and marshes here long before European settlers arrived because the wild rice fulfilled a prophecy that the tribe’s wanderings would end when it found food growing on water. Most of the tribe’s weathered houses and mobile homes and its casino, one of the state’s smallest, sit in the woods along U.S. Highway 2 about 80 miles east of Duluth, Minn. Per capita income was $12,352, according to the latest Census Bureau estimates. But tribal leaders hold fast to their connection with the natural world. Signs on the reservation’s borders inform travelers the land is sacred, and tribal members still rely on the land for sustenance. “The view you get here is the view your ancestors had,” tribal chairman Mike Wiggins Jr. said as he scrolled through photos of the reservation’s beaches and spectacular sunsets on his laptop. “These things really do matter.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Take the lead in a situation before someone can interfere. The unexpected occurs, and it floors you and many others. A meeting points your attention in the right direction.

The interaction might surprise you at first, and then could delight you later. You need that type of dynamic in a bond in order to stay interested. Understand your need for change. Tonight: Play “follow the leader.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)  Defer to others, and avoid an argument. A power play might get the best of you if you get involved in it. The smart move is to steer clear and do what is necessary. Do not respond. If you continue to say nothing, the game might end. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)  You might try to bypass a problem when the unexpected occurs. Recognize that you can do only so much. Do not attempt a power play or any other type of manipulation. You know what is acceptable. Tonight: Opt for a foot rub or a massage, should someone offer.

Raindrops, gloomy skies can’t stop Mardi Gras

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Despite threatening skies, the Mardi Gras party carried on as thousands of costumed revelers cheered glitzy floats with makebelieve monarchs in an allout bash before Lent. In the French Quarter, as usual, Fat Tuesday played out with all its flesh and raunchiness. Crowds were a little smaller than recent years, perhaps influenced by the forecast of rain. Still, parades went off as scheduled even as a fog settled over the river front and downtown areas. Police, who had to deal with massive waves of visitors — first for Super Bowl and then for Mardi Gras — reported no major problems other than Saturday night when four people were shot on Bourbon Street. A suspect has been arrested. There was a heavy police presence in the touristfilled Quarter, where crowds began to swell in the early after noon and would be bursting at the seams by the time police on horseback declared the party over at midnight. The family side of Mardi Gras unfolded along stately St. Charles Avenue, where some groups camped out over night to stake out prime spots for paradeviewing. A brief rain shower as the final float in the Krewe of Rex parade passed by didn’t dampen the enthusiasm there. Clif f Kenwood and his wife, Jennie, of New Orleans, brought their two children — 8-year-old Ivy and 6-year-old Jack — to the festivities. Each was dressed as a skeleton and Cliff Kenwood wore a banner around his hat referencing the recent publishing changes to the city’s newspaper — The TimesPicayune. The costumes poked fun

at the paper’s decision to cut back from a daily publishing schedule to three days a week. “We’re black, white and dead all over,” Jennie Kenwood said laughing. She said their family kept their subscription even though they thought about canceling. “We can’t do it to them. We don’t want them to die,” she said. Rain or shine, it was a last chance to soak in some fun during the Car nival season, which ends with the start of Lent on Wednesday. The Krewe of Zulu led the festivities from city neighborhoods to the business district, followed by the parade of Rex, King of Carnival, and hundreds of truck floats decorated by families and social groups. In the French Quarter, many revelers had drinks in hand before sunrise. Some donned tutus, beads and boas. Some hadn’t been to bed since Monday’s Lundi Gras celebrations. “We’ll be in the French Quarter all day,” said Bobbie Meir, of Gretna, La., with feathers in her hair and finger nails painted purple. “The sights today are jaw-dropping. It’s a ton of fun and the best party in the world. Nobody does Mardi Gras like we do.” On Bourbon Street, women wore bustiers, fishnet stockings, bikini bottoms and little else. Some flashed flesh to attract the

attention of people throwing beads from balconies. “We’re a flock of peacocks,” said Laura Komarek, a recent New Orleans transplant from Minneapolis who moved to the Big Easy for a teaching job. Komarek and a group of friends walked Bourbon Street wearing leotards and large colorful feathers on their bottoms. Sipping a hand-grenade, one of Bourbon Street’s signature cocktails, Komarek said this was her first Mardi Gras. “This is a totally different experience than any other event I’ve ever been to in my life. I’m so happy, having a blast with my friends without a care in the world.” The costumes were plentiful. Many revelers were clad in the traditional colors of Mardi Gras — purple, green and gold. There were cows, bees, pirates and jesters. One reveler rode through the French Quarter on a bike dressed in a U.S. Postal Service jer-

Coyotes fend off Artesia at Den Section

Roswell Daily Record

KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

It’s rare to watch a Roswell boys basketball game and not see one of the Coyotes’ patented mini-runs that breaks the game open. The fans in attendance at the Coyote Den on Tuesday saw one of those runs and it changed the game for the better for Roswell. The Coyotes (20-2) held Artesia score-

less for the final five minutes of the second quarter and ran off nine points of their own en route to a 67-56 win over the Bulldogs. “I thought we finally started relaxing and playing. It seemed like we were kind of playing tight up until that point. That run gave us a little breathing room at half,” Roswell coach Britt Cooper said about the final minutes of the first half.

NATIONAL BRIEFS FELIX, MARINERS FINALIZE DEAL

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Felix Hernandez and Seattle reached agreement Tuesday on a contract that is expected to make the Mariners ace the highest-paid pitcher in baseball. “I think it’s a great thing for the Seattle Mariners,” Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “It’s a great thing for Felix Hernandez, and looking forward to this guy being here for a very long time, obviously.” Hernandez’s deal is expected to be for $175 million over seven years. Terms of the contract were not released by the team. Hernandez and Zduriencik will hold a news conference in Seattle on Wednesday afternoon where Hernandez is expected to sign the contract. Earlier Tuesday, Zduriencik said the sides were having significant talks to try to finalize a new contract for the three-time All-Star and 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner. Zduriencik said then that a deal of that magnitude in years and dollars, “takes time to work things out.” It didn’t take too long. By the afternoon, Hernandez’s deal was done and Seattle had its ace locked up through the 2019 season. The new contract will encompass the final two years of his current deal that is scheduled to pay Hernandez $40.5 million in 2013 and 2014. He’ll receive $134.5 million over the additional five years. Hernandez’s total dollars would top CC Sabathia’s original $161 million, seven-year contract with the New York Yankees and his $25 million average would surpass Zack Greinke’s $24.5 million under his new contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers and tie him for the second-highest in baseball with Josh Hamilton and Ryan Howard behind Alex Rodriguez ($27.5 million). Hernandez’s new money would average $26.9 million over five years. With Hernandez off the market, Detroit’s Justin Verlander and the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw become the most attractive pitchers eligible for free agency after the 2014 season. Tampa Bay’s David Price is eligible after the 2015 season. Hernandez, who will turn 27 on April 8, is 98-76 with a 3.22 ERA in eight seasons with the Mariners. He won a career-high 19 games in 2009 when he finished second in the Cy Young voting then won the award a year later when he went just 1312 but had a 2.27 ERA and 232 strikeouts.

Roswell seizes control of District 4-4A PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL

KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR

Roswell girls basketball coach Joe Carpenter hates to lose at home. And he especially hates losing at home in district play. He doesn’t have to worry about that this season. The Coyotes (17-6, 2-0 District 4-4A) defended their home court against Artesia on Tuesday, downing the Bulldogs 53-32 to seize sole possession of first place in District 4-4A. “It’s big time. ... It’s tough to open up at home because you can’t afford to lose a game,” Carpenter said. “I’m not saying we’re in cruise control, but now we have an opportunity to win a regular season district title. “If you can defend your home court, then you’re in pretty good shape. I think we’ve done that and we feel good about where we’re at.” Roswell only had to worry about losing for a short period of time against Artesia. Two minutes into the game, the Coyotes were clinging to a 54 lead. The two teams battled through

a two-minute scoreless drought before Kayleen Willard broke the stalemate with a free throw at the 4:01 mark. The freebie seemed innocuous at first, but it served as the jumping-off point for a run that would put Roswell in full control. By the end of the first, Roswell led 15-4 thanks to a 10-0 run. Artesia got within single digits just twice in the second quarter. When Victoria Meraz followed a Myla Brown miss with a putback with 1:08 left, Roswell was back in front by double digits for the remainder. Most of Roswell’s success in the first half was born out of its defense. “Our defense was generating our offense. We were either getting wide-open 3s in transition or we were able to get to the foul line,” Carpenter said. “We were getting some steals and I think that’s what the difference in the game was. “When we got that run going, it was because we hit a few big 3s and then the scoreboard went cha-ching.” A big chunk of that cha-ching

Michigan St. routs in-state rival Michigan by 23

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State turned a highly anticipated, historic matchup into a showcase of what its proud program is capable of doing this season. Gary Harris scored 17 points and Derrick Nix had 14 to help the eighth-ranked Spartans rout No. 4 Michigan 75-52 on Tuesday night in the rivalry’s first matchup of top 10 teams. “It was the perfect storm,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “We played about as well as we can.” The Spartans (21-4, 10-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference with No. 1 Indiana, which plays at Michigan State next Tuesday after the Spartans try to avoid a letdown Saturday night at Nebraska. Michigan State’s Keith Appling acknowledged he was a little bit surprised by the lopsided victory — the school’s largest since beating Michigan by 27 points in 2002 — but shrugged off the significance of it with much of the regular season remaining. “We just have to take it for what it is and prepare for our next game,” Appling said. The Wolverines (21-4, 8-4) have lost three of four, but the closely contested setbacks on the road against the Hoosiers and at Wisconsin were nothing like the latest when they were held to a season-

Four Tide players arrested

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Three University of Alabama football players have been charged with knocking students unconscious and stealing their wallets, while a fourth player has been charged with using a stolen debit card, officials said Tuesday. Linebacker Tyler Hayes, 18, and safety Eddie Williams, 20, confessed to robbing a student who was punched in the head and face and kicked in the ribs and back early Monday morning, according to court documents. Williams said D.J. Pettway, 20, a defensive lineman, and Hayes waited in a nearby vehicle about an hour later while he knocked out and robbed another student. Williams and Hayes both admitted to their involvement, according to the documents. Williams and running back Brent Calloway, 20, both admitted to using a stolen credit card to buy snacks from vending machines inside a dormitory, the documents said. All four students were indefinitely suspended by coach Nick Saban. Pettway and Hayes were charged with second-degree robbery. Williams was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and second-degree robbery. Calloway was charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Williams was released on $65,000 bond, while Hayes and Pettway were released on $60,000 bond each. Calloway was released on $5,000 bond. “This behavior is unacceptable for any student-athlete at the University of Alabama and not representative of our football program,” Saban said in a news release. All four players were backups last season for Alabama, which has won two straight national titles and three of the past four. Williams didn’t play in 2012. But he was one of the nation’s top prospects the previous year and moved from receiver to safety. The first student reported having his Apple Macbook Pro stolen from his backpack. Both sustained mild concussions, cuts on the face and heavy swelling, and had their wallets taken, according to documents. University police posted an advisory Monday saying two students reported being approached by two men who asked for a light for a cigarette. Police also said Williams had been arrested on a charge of carrying a pistol without a permit a day before his arrest on the robbery charges. Tuscaloosa police Sgt. Brent Blankley said in a news release that a clerk at a gas station called police early Sunday, telling officers that Williams threatened that he had something in his trunk after a fight about paying for gas. Officers who pulled over Williams found a pistol in his pants pocket, the release said. In that case, he was released on $500 bond. Jail records did not show whether any of

low point total. “It was an embarrassing loss,” guard Trey Burke said. Michigan State didn’t trail once, led by as many as 16 points in the first half and enjoyed 30-point leads in the second. The game was so lopsided that both coaches filled the court with reserves during the final minutes. “We probably played our best game in three years,” Izzo said. “And, they probably played one of their worst.” Michigan coach John Beilein agreed. “That was the worst we’ve played in a long, long time and credit Michigan State for that,” he said. Burke scored 18 points for the Wolverines and didn’t get much help from his teammate offensively, or defensively. Tim Hardaway Jr. was held scoreless until making a layup in the opening minute of the second half — after turning down Beilein’s suggestion to work on his shot during halftime warmups — and didn’t score again. Hardaway was 1 of 11 from the field and scored a season-low two points. “They bullied us — point blank,” he said. “I’ve got nothing else to say.” Glen Robinson III was 1 of 4 and scored two points to match his season low. The Wolverines, who pride themselves on taking care of the basket-

the players had an attorney. Pettway, who was a redshirt freshman, played in 13 games and had 2 1⁄2 sacks and eight tackles. Hayes had 14 tackles as a freshman. Calloway played mostly on special teams but gained 63 yards on 10 carries. He has moved around on the field, working as a linebacker, tight end and H-back since Alabama signed the onetime Auburn commitment. Calloway was arrested on a charge of marijuana possession in October 2011 during a redshirt season.

Gonzalez maintains he hasn’t used PEDs

VIERA, Fla. (AP) — Gio Gonzalez arrived at spring training with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday and maintained he has not used performance-enhancing drugs. The Miami New Times reported last month that Gonzalez was among a halfdozen major league players listed as receiving PEDs in purported records of Biogenesis of America LLC, a now-closed anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables, Fla. Gonzalez hopes to be exonerated. “I feel very confident,” the 27-year-old left hander said. “I think that at the end of the day I’ve never taken performance-enhancing drugs, and I never will.” Gonzalez, a 21-game winner last year, denied the allegations on Twitter on the day they were reported. “You’re stunned. You’re shocked,” he said Tuesday. “Your name has been brought up out of nowhere. You can’t do nothing about it. You just have to wait it out and listen to what’s going on. You can’t jump the gun. You can’t jump to conclusions. At the end of the day you just have to listen in and wait patiently.” Gonzalez said he had been contacted by Major League Baseball officials and has cooperated with their investigation. Gonzalez said he has “done everything that they want, and I feel strong with their program and what they’re doing, and at the end of the day I’m waiting on them.” Gonzalez’s father, Max, also was listed in the purported Biogenesis records. “There’s no connection for the fact that I say my father admitted that he was a patient there. A legitimate patient,” the pitcher said. “And then after that, you know how my father is. ... All of south Florida, all of baseball knows that my father is the most proud father in baseball. He tells everyone about his son. And that’s the best I can say. Other than that, I have no clue why my name was on that list, or on a notebook or anything.” Gonzalez doesn’t want the allegations to be a distraction for his teammates. “I’m going to do my best to keep it away from the locker room,” he said. “I don’t want any of this to be about me. Again, it’s about the organization and it’s about the team together.” Teammate Drew Storen said he isn’t worried. “Gio’s a big part of this team, obviously. He’s always been a big character guy for us,” Storen said. “I think he’ll continue to do that. He’ll come in and be able to separate that stuff out. I think that’s one of the things our clubhouse has been special for, we’re able to cut out the outside factors. . I think we’re going to be in good shape. Gio’s a stand-up, character guy for us in this clubhouse. It’s not going to change a thing.” Gonzalez said he plans to pitch for the United States in next month’s World Baseball Classic following an invitation from manager Joe Torre. He figures to bolster a rotation missing David Price, Justin Verlander, Jered Weaver, Clayton Kershaw and Matt Cain.

Michigan made fewer than 40 percent of its shots and scored one fewer point than it did in a threepoint loss at Ohio State. “We couldn’t get anywhere we wanted to and when we had open looks, we didn’t hit anything,” Beilein said. “Somehow, we did not play with poise that we need to have to make shots.” Everything went right for Michigan State, which had just eight turnovers and made 48-plus percent of its shots. Harris scored from the outside, making five 3-pointers, and Nix had his way on the inside as part of a balanced offense. Appling had 11 points and Branden Dawson scored 10 before leaving the court late in the game because Michigan’s Mitch McGary hit him in the face inadvertently with his right arm.. Izzo said Dawson got hit in the nose and had a cut on his lip. “I do think he’s going to be OK,” Izzo said. Matt Costello scored a seasonhigh eight points and fellow freshman Denzel Valentine had seven points to help Michigan State win its second straight in the series after losing three in a row following a run of dominance for the Spartans.

Panthers to begin renovation after 2013 season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers president Danny Morrison said the team plans to begin renovations on its 16year-old stadium immediately after the 2013 NFL season and estimates the project could take two years to complete. The master plan calls for between $261 million and $297 million in upgrades, according to Morrison. Charlotte’s City Council is backing a proposal to give the Panthers nearly $144 million from a food and beverage tax increase to pay for stadium upgrades and the team is seeking more than $60 million in state funds. Morrison said the goal of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has been to improve the experience for all 74,000 fans, not just those in the luxury suites. “He gave us directions that the majority of plans need to be for 74,000 fans, not just premium seating,” Morrison said. “That list we’ve came up with affects all 74,000 fans. We also wanted to retain our classic designed stadium in a park but also bring it to the forefront with modern technology.” The primary objectives include installing three escalators to reach the upper level, new video and ribbon boards and an improved sound system, as well as upgrading technology and stadium infrastructure and improving access to the stadium through enhanced entry gates. Some of the other potential upgrades down the road include adding a roof terrace, a team history area, field club and an indoor practice facility. Morrison emphasized the plan is fluid and could undergo changes along the way. “There are some things you might end up not doing,” Morrison said. “And there could be something which surfaces with technology we don’t even know about.” Morrison said there are five priorities in the renovation:

— Installing three escalators that reach the upper level. “If you were 55 years old when you bought a permanent seat license you are over 70 now, so that’s a big deal to us,” Morrison said. “We’ll still maintain the ramps, but now fans would be able to take the escalators up.” — Upgrading video and sound, including two new, larger video boards, two ribbon boards, and a new sound system will help the Panthers keep up with other NFL venues at an estimated cost of $59 million. — Installing new technology upgrades, including creating a new fiber backbone, cabling, WiFi, DAS and an IPTV distribution system. “When people go to a game they’re expecting more stats to keep up with fantasy football,” Morrison said. — Renovating the infrastructure of the stadium itself, which Morrison draws the comparison to maintaining your existing home. That includes upgrading the HVAC system, the playing field, concrete and seats. — And, improving the entrance ways to allow easier access to the stadium. Since the team installed a new “wanding” process to screen fans entering the stadium it has slowed down the ability to get inside and created longer waiting lines outside. “We have to have a more efficient system,” Morrison said. The Panthers stadium is middle-aged by NFL standards. That’s why the Panthers brought in four outside consulting firms in the summer of 2011 to analyze they stadium and determine its overall functional ability and the health of the stadium He said they all found the “bones” of the stadium to be in great shape. At that point it was clear the team would begin the process of upgrading the current stadium rather than building a new one. Since the stadium opened in 1996, 25 other NFL stadiums have been built over undergone major renovations and three other cities — San Francisco, Minnesota and Atlanta — are contemplating new stadiums. Populous, the company formerly known as HOK Sports, built the stadium in the mid90s and was also hired to handle the renovations. “It made sense because they built it,” Morrison said. Morrison said the Panthers would love to host a Super Bowl and the new upgrades would certainly help bring it up to par with some of the best stadium in the league.

Woods adds three tournaments to schedule

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods is filling out his schedule on the road to the Masters with a pair of World Golf Championships and his new hometown event. Woods says on his website Tuesday he’ll play next week in the Match Play Championship in Arizona, the first of three straight tournaments. He will play the following week near his home at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., and play in the Cadillac Championship at Doral. Woods says it’s a busy stretch and he wants to keep playing well. He hasn’t played since winning at Torrey Pines three weeks ago. Woods competed in the Honda Classic last year for the first time as a pro and finished second behind Rory McIlroy. Woods moved from central Florida to south Florida a year ago.

USGA creates new event, abandons Public Links

FAR HILLS, N.J. (AP) — The U.S. Golf Association is adding its first championship in more than 25 years, getting rid of the U.S. Amateur Public Links in favor of a U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship to meet what it says is a trend at the state and regional level. The Four-Ball Championship — one tournament for men, one for women — will start in 2015. Adding these two tournaments means the end of two others, however. That includes the U.S. Amateur Public Links, which dates to 1922 and has a list of winners that includes Trevor Immelman, Tim Clark and Brandt Snedeker. Also being abandoned is the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links, where Michelle Wie made history in 2003 at age 13 as the youngest winner of a USGA championship for adults. USGA vice president Thomas O’Toole Jr. said the better-ball format for the U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship should lend to more exciting golf. He also said it was gaining in popularity, with more than 150 tournaments using the format in state and regional competitions last year. The sites for 2015 events have not been determined. The USGA said there would be no age restriction for teams in the Four-Ball Championship, and that players do not have to belong to the same club, or even come from the same state or country. There will be

36 holes of stroke-play competition — counting the better score of the two players on each hole — before the field is reduced to 32 teams for the fourballs format in match play. The U.S. Amateur Public Links is the fourth-oldest USGA event, and the winner gets an invitation to the Masters. It was created to provide a championship for amateur golfers from public courses, because at the time, the U.S. Amateur was only for players from USGA member clubs. The U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links began in 1977. The last time the USGA added a championship to its roster was in 1987 with the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship.

Ultimate body slam SPORTS

Roswell Daily Record

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — For wrestling, this may have been the ultimate body slam: getting tossed out of the Olympic rings. The vote Tuesday by the IOC’s executive board stunned the world’s wrestlers, who see their sport as popular in many countries and steeped in history as old as the Olympics themselves. While wrestling will be included at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, it was cut from the games in 2020, which have yet to be awarded to a host city. 2004 Olympic GrecoRoman champion Khasan Baroev of Russia called the decision “mind-boggling.” “I just can’t believe it. And what sport will then be added to the Olympic program? What sport is worthy of replacing ours?” Baroev told the ITAR-Tass news agency. “Wrestling is popular in many countries — just see how the medals were distributed at the last Olympics.” American Rulan Gardner, who upset three-time Russian Olympic champion Alexander Karelin at the Sydney Games in an epic gold-medal bout known as the “Miracle on the Mat,” was saddened by the deci-

Wrestling dropped from Olympics sion to drop what he called “a beloved sport.” “It’s the IOC trying to change the Olympics to make it more mainstream and more viewer -friendly instead of sticking to what they founded the Olympics on,” Gardner told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Logan, Utah. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee reviewed the 26 sports on its summer program in order to remove one of them so it could add one later this year. It decided to cut wrestling and keep modern pentathlon — a sport that combines fencing, horse riding, swimming, running and shooting — and was considered to be the most likely to be dropped. The board voted after reviewing a report by the IOC program commission report that analyzed 39 criteria, including TV ratings, ticket sales, anti-doping policy and global participation and popularity. With no official rankings or recommendations contained in the report, the final decision by the 15member board was also subject to political, emotional and sentimental factors.

“This is a process of renewing and renovating the program for the Olympics,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. “In the view of the executive board, this was the best program for the Olympic Games in 2020. It’s not a case of what’s wrong with wrestling; it is what’s right with the 25 core

sports.” According to IOC documents obtained by the AP, wrestling ranked “low” in several of the technical criteria, including popularity with the public at the London Games — just below 5 on a scale of 10. Wrestling sold 113,851 tickets in London out of 116,854 available.

U.S. wrestlers blindsided by Olympic ouster Rulon Gardner’s epic upset of Russian wrestling great Alexander Karelin in 2000 remains one of the most compelling moments of the modern Olympics. Starting in 2020, youngsters looking to Gardner and Karelin for inspiration won’t have a chance to excel on the sport’s biggest stage. Gardner and nearly everyone else associated with the sport in the U.S. were jolted Tuesday when International Olympic Committee leaders dropped wrestling from the Summer Games. The move is set to take effect for the 2020 Olympics and eliminates a sport that’s been a staple

plus minutes of the game. T railing 5-2, Goddard’s Christina Ornelas drilled a 3 from the wing and her triple ignited the Rockets. After a defensive stop on the other end, Megan Meeks made a layup while getting fouled, but missed the ensuing freebie to make it 7-5. The Warriors knotted it up with a layup fr om Madigan Gonzales, but Goddard took the lead for good with a secondchance bucket fr om Abbie Blach. Two consecutive Ruidoso tur novers led to two fr ee thr ows fr om Danielle Hubbard and a bunny from Blach that pushed the lead to 13-7.

The only sports in which the Americans have won more medals than wrestling is swimming and track and field — and

advantage. Those thr ee points would be the last Artesia points for nearly seven minutes of game time, though. Hiram McIntyre tied the game at 23 with a runner in the lane with 4:32 left in the half and, 34 seconds later, an Olguin free throw marked the 12th — and final — lead change of the game. The Coyotes poured in six mor e points in the final minute of the half to seemed like we couldn’t put anything in the hole,” he said. “Then, in that second four minutes of the first quarter, it seemed like everything we put up went in. It got our confidence going. That is what I r eally wanted for this game, more than anything, was to get our kids confidence offensively.” That confidence continued to gr ow in the second quarter and the Rocket lead followed suit. Holding a 26-18 lead, Goddard took control of the game in the final four minutes of the first half. Meeks made a layup of f a feed fr om Blach to push the Rocket lead to 10 and, two possessions later, Hubbard made a layup off a steal to make it 30-18. The Warriors called a timeout after the Hubbard layup, but it didn’t help matters as Hubbard swiped a pass at midcourt and raced in for an uncontested layup that grew the Rocket lead to 14. Ruidoso never got closer than nine the rest of the way.

those two have far more medal opportunities. Americans have won a record 113 freestyle Olympic medals, by far the most of any nation. Though the U.S. had slipped in recent Olympic cycles, it bounced back with a pair of London Games gold medalists in Jordan Burroughs — possibly the best wrestler in the world — and Jake Varner. “I do think wrestling people are the strongest in the world, and they’re resilient. And we’ll come out of whatever happens. But short term, yeah, it’s sad,” 2004 Olympic gold medalist and Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said. “I just think of the kids in our

cap the 9-0 run, giving them a 30-23 lead at the break. “To finish the half (like that), that set the tone,” Cooper said. “It was back and forth, and tight. Then we made that little run at the end and things came on.” Artesia never recovered from the spurt. The Bulldogs got within six twice in the third quarter, but another Coyote flurry — a 9-3 run — to end the quarter put the Hubbard (18), Blach (16), Courtney Villalpando (10, including a buzzer beater just inside halfcourt at the end of the third) and Meeks (10) all scored in double figures for Torres, who said that kind of balanced scoring will be key for his team against the Coyotes and Bulldogs. “It is one thing where you have a couple of people that get opportunities (on offense),” he said. “Whenever we have a big four or big five, that is a lot better than just the big one or two and it seems like that is wher e we have been stuck at. To beat top-10 teams like Artesia and Roswell, we will have to have a big four and five.” In addition to her 16 points, Blach added 13 rebounds, seven steals, thr ee blocks and two assists, while Meeks added seven boards and three steals.

program that dream of being Olympic champions. And to think that now that’s no longer an opportunity just so the IOC stay fresh and continue to rotate sports and whatever their plan is — it’s tough to think about.” Wrestling is also one of the most popular youth sports in the U.S. The National Federation of State High School Associations reports that the sport was sixth among prep boys with nearly 275,000 competing in 2010-11. “Wrestling is the Olympics. It’s the toughest, most grueling, most demanding and most humbling sport there is. It teaches you so many life lessons,” said Jake Herbert, who wrestled for

Alex Olesinski was the bane of Artesia’s existence on this night, pouring in a game-best 28 points and pulling down eight boards. “He’s just a mis-match nightmare,” Cooper said about his sophomor e standout. “They try to put a post on him and he goes around him. They try to put a guard on him and we post him up. “He used his head about what he needed to do all night long. That shows a little savvy there, certainly for a sophomore. He was just solid.” The win pushed Roswell’s district record to

The others are a combined bid from baseball and softball, karate, squash, roller sports, sport climbing, wakeboarding and wushu. They will be vying for a single opening in 2020. USA Wrestling executive director Richard Bender calls his sport “one of the most diverse,” with nearly 200 nations from all continents participating. “It is an inclusive sport which provides opportunities worldwide, regardless of geography, race, gender or physical characteristics,” he said.

Roswell Daily Record

Rhode Island struggles with highest unemployment PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Mark Simmons began dialing Rhode Island’s unemployment call center at 8 a.m. on a recent Monday. He got a busy signal. He tried 67 more times before the automated system picked up and told him that because of heavy call volume, he should try back another time. People applying for unemployment benefits in this state with the nation’s highest jobless rate must wait on hold an average of 51 minutes. Not only that, but some of those interviewed by The Associated Press say that their benefits are often weeks late and that when they try to speak to a human about the problem, they’re referred to a computer. “This is about whether I can buy groceries or whether I’m going to be evicted,” said Simmons, a 42-year-old Army veteran who has gotten by on part-time wages and unemployment since losing his job at a Providence bookstore in 2011. “I sit in my apartment, dialing the number again and again, when I’m supposed to be looking for jobs. It’s like, what do I pay taxes for?” While many states are well on the way to recovery 2 1/2 years after the end of the Great Recession, financially ailing

Rhode Island stands apart. And it inadvertently made things more difficult for its unemployed with an automated system that can’t handle the demand, and a remarkably ill-timed decision to lay off scores of workers at the call center. State officials acknowledge the problems and say they are rehiring staff and have upgraded the automated system. But the mess has illustrated how slowly and painfully recovery has come to Rhode Island. With a population of just over 1 million, Rhode Island has 57,800 jobless people and is tied with Nevada for the highest unemployment in the nation, at 10.2 percent, as it seeks to reverse a long, slow decline in business that began well before the recession. Once home to a robust manufacturing economy that produced jewelry, heavy machinery and other goods, Rhode Island has struggled for decades to attract the kind of jobs in health care and high tech that have helped its New England neighbors make the transition into the 21st century. Unemployment in Rhode Island peaked during the recent downturn at 11.9 percent, and the state is projecting a $69 million budget shortfall this year.

During the 2007-09 recession, the federal government gave states extra money to beef up unemployment-office staffing, but the dollars have dried up as the jobs picture has improved across the country. Last summer, faced with a $3 million cut in federal aid, Rhode Island’s labor department laid off 67 workers, including about one-third of the 150 people at the call center. Telephone wait times jumped to more than two hours, according to the AP Photo union representing the laidoff workers.

Government seeks changes Dow edges toward record for malt liquor Four Loko

WASHINGTON (AP) — The makers of a popular carbonated alcoholic drink guzzled on college campuses are going to be changing the look of its Four Loko cans to settle the government’s charges of deceptive marketing. The Federal Trade Commission said Tuesday that Chicago-based Phusion Projects will be required to put an “alcohol facts panel” on the back of flavored malt beverage cans containing more than two servings of alcohol. The panel, similar to “nutritional facts” labels found on foods, would disclose the alcohol by volume and the number of servings in the container. Phusion also will have to redesign cans of drinks containing more than 2 1/2 servings of alcohol so they can be resealed and the drink wouldn’t have to be consumed in one sitting. The FTC had accused Phusion of implying in ads that its supersized 23.5-ounce can of Four Loko was equal to one or two regular 12-ounce beers. In fact, the agency says, the can — which contains up to 12 percent alcohol — is really more like four to five beers. Company co-founder Jaisen Freeman said Phusion did not agree with the allegations, but considered the agreement a way to move forward. “We share a common interest with the

FTC in providing consumers with information and packaging options to help them make informed, responsible decisions,” Freeman said.

The commission had initially proposed a deal with Phusion requiring new label disclosures on products with more than 2 1/2 servings of alcohol. But the agency was flooded with complaints about the dangers of the supersized drinks, especially with underage drinkers — so it lowered the disclosure trigger to more than two servings of alcohol.

The FTC also was going to require a label on the front of the can with an alcohol comparison to a regular beer, but some public commenters worried that might lead to binge drinking — by suggesting Four Loko was a quick, cheap way to get drunk.

Four Loko gained national attention in 2010 after the hospitalization of college students in New Jersey and Washington state. Some states banned the drink, worried about the caffeine in Four Loko and its potential to mask how much alcohol one could safely consume. Amid a crackdown by the Food and Drug Administration, the drink’s makers removed the caffeine and started selling Four Loko without the energy kick but still with plenty of alcohol.

million by slashing costs. Michael Kors, a luxury clothing and accessories seller, rose $4.28, or 7 percent, to $61.34 after reporting earnings that beat analysts’ predictions. The Standard & Poor’s 500 gained three points to 1,520 and is also close to its record level. The Nasdaq composite was down three points at 3,188. About 70 percent of companies in the S&P 500 have reported earnings for the fourth quarter. Analysts are projecting that earnings will rise 6.4 percent for the period, an improvement from the 2.4 percent growth reported in the third quarter, according to S&P Capital IQ. The Dow has advanced 7 percent this year and the S&P 500 is up 6.6 percent. Investors may have become too optimistic about the outlook for stocks, said Uri Landesman, president of hedge fund Platinum Partners. “The market is priced for perfection,” said Landes-

NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow edged closer to a record Tuesday as stocks advanced following strong ear nings from Avon and Michael Kors. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 50 points at 14,022 with less than an hour of trading left, putting it within 1 percent of the record close of 14,164 it set in October 2007. The Dow surged at the start of the year, logging its best January in almost two decades. Stocks are building on a rally that began in January after lawmakers reached a last-minute deal to avoid the “fiscal cliff” of sweeping tax increases and spending cuts. Investors are also becoming more optimistic that the housing market is recovering and that hiring is picking up. Avon, a direct seller of beauty products, jumped $3.61, or 21 percent, to $20.89 Tuesday after the company posted a fourthquarter loss that wasn’t as bad as analysts had expected. The company also hopes to save $400

man. “The odds of a disappointment are very, very high.” Landesman predicts that the S&P 500 will climb past its record and rise as high as 1,600 by April before then slumping as low as 1,300 as company earnings start to disappoint investors. The record close for the S&P 500 is 1,565, reached in October 2007. Investors appear to be supporting the market by stepping in to buy stocks when prices dip, said JJ Kinahan, chief derivatives strategist at TDAmeritrade. The S&P 500 has gained for six straight weeks since the start of the year. Confidence in the outlook for global growth has strengthened among asset managers in recent months, according to a Bank of America Merrill L ynch survey. The poll found that 59 percent of investors believe that the global economy will strengthen in the year ahead, in line with the reading in January.

Man behind Amish Fireplace gives public 99 deal Consumers rush to get in on rock bottom deal for the World Famous miracle heater as Amish craftsmen struggle to keep up, household limit of 2 imposed NATIONWIDE – It’s a deal too good to pass up. That’s because the man behind the Amish Fireplace and founder of Heat Surge is giving away brand new World Famous Miracle Heaters for just $99 to the general public beginning at 8:30am this morning. And with many months of freezing cold weather yet to come and high heat bills right around the corner, the phone lines are ringing off the hook. When I got wind that all this was ending in just 2 days, I left my office at Heat Surge and headed straight to Amish country to set up an interview with long time Amish craftsman Jonas Miller so I could be the first to get the story out to newspaper readers everywhere. Here’s my interview with the soft spoken, hard working man who reminds me of good old honest Abe and I got right to the bottom line. QUESTION: I’m confirming that the World Famous Miracle Heater is now just $99, right? ANSWER: Yes ma’am, it’s just $99. QUESTION: That’s unbelievable. Do you know how much people have paid for the Miracle Heater and handmade Amish fireplace mantle in the past? ANSWER: Lots and lots of people have paid $249.00 just for the Miracle Heater and another $298.00 for the Amish mantle. That’s a total of $547.00 and they’re glad to pay it because they know it’s handmade Amish quality that lasts forever and Heat Surge pays me to make sure everyone knows it. QUESTION: Then why are the Miracle Heaters being given away for just $99 now? ANSWER: There’s a bunch of good people out there that have always wanted to slash their heat bills and stay warm with one of our fireplaces, but just couldn’t afford one. Folks living on fixed incomes, those living pay check to pay check and retired folks who would have so much more money if they didn’t have to budget for such high heat bills every month. That’s why the man behind the Amish fireplace said to give the heaters away for just $99 for the next 2 days. Plus give the handmade Amish fireplace mantles away for half price so everyone can get them. QUESTION: Now I know why so many people are calling to get the Miracle Heater. Are the craftsmen struggling to keep up? ANSWER: Yes ma’am. Now that winter is really starting to set in folks want to save money. Everyone hates paying high heat bills that start showing up in January and don’t stop until after May. I looked in one of the barns this morning and I’ll tell ya what, they’re flying out the door like apple butter pies. The boys are really struggling to keep up. That’s why I need you to tell folks I’m really sorry, but we just can’t let them have any more than two as part of this advertising announcement. QUESTION: How much mon-

NCONSUMERS JUMP ON DEAL: “We’re gonna keep our word and give the Miracle Heaters away for just $99, but nearly everyone wants to have a handmade Amish mantle built for them, so please tell folks not to take any more than two because the boys are really struggling to keep up now that they’re just one hundred forty-nine dollars more,” said long-time Amish craftsman, Jonas Miller. Barns that were stacked from floor to ceiling just days ago are now going empty because everyone hates paying high heat bills. That’s why smart consumers are rushing to beat the 2 day deadline for this rock bottom deal that’s putting a real strain on the Amish craftsmen.

ey are people saving with these Miracle Heaters? ANSWER: Thousands of letters pour in from folks all across the country thanking us at Heat Surge for all the money they’re saving on their heat bills with this Amish fireplace. It works because the Miracle Heater creates perfect zone heating giving you 74° of bone-soothing room heat even when the home thermostat is turned down to 59°. So everyone will save money and no one will ever be cold again. QUESTION: I read an article

that says these Miracle Heaters are a top rated safety pick. Have you seen it too? ANSWER: Oh yes. Someone showed me that article and we’re very proud of it. In fact, when a fire chief tells people with children and pets to get it, you know it’s safe. It has the World Famous safe to the touch Fireless Flame® technology that gives you the peaceful flicker of a real fire but without any flames, fumes, smells, ashes or mess. This is about the time we had to wrap things up, but I could’ve talked to this soft spoken Amish

man for hours. Unfortunately, he was late getting back to the barn. But there are two things I want readers to know. This really is a great deal and once the two day deadline ends, the price for the World Famous Miracle Heater and Amish built fireplace mantle will go clear back up to $547.00 plus shipping. That’s why it’s so important for readers to call the National Toll Free Hotlines today to get the Miracle Heaters for just $99 before the deadline ends. To make sure everyone gets these new Miracle Heaters in a

hurry, FedEx® drivers have been instructed to make home deliveries anywhere in the United States beginning tomorrow. Thousands of local readers are expected to call the hotlines beginning at 8:30am today. It just doesn’t make sense for anyone to suffer through the cold when you can get the brand new Miracle Heater for just $99 and never have to pay high heat bills again. So if phone lines are busy keep trying, they promise to answer all calls. N – by Kristin Kishman, Consumer Analyst for Heat Surge LLC.

Barns going empty, consumers rush to lock in $99 deal

NGET THEM WHILE YOU CAN: Long-time Amish craftsman Jonas Miller encourages all the craftsmen to keep up with the household limit of 2 Amish fireplaces as newspapers hit the newsstands. “We’ve got the whole Amish community helping out, but we’ve never seen anything like this before. We’re letting everyone get the Miracle Heater (shown here) for just $99, but nearly everyone wants to have a handmade Amish mantle built for their Miracle Heater, so we can barely keep up with all the orders,” Miller said. Everyone hoping to cash in on this deal needs to immediately call the National Toll Free Hotlines before the deadline ends.

With just 2 days left to get in on the $99 deal and Amish barns going empty, people everywhere are rushing to get the Miracle Heaters before they’re all sold out. Demand for the Miracle Heaters has skyrocketed ever since news about the $99 deal started spreading. In fact, overflow hotlines had to be set up just to take all the calls and because the Amish craftsmen are struggling to keep up, a household limit of 2 had to be imposed. According to the avalanche of consumer reviews for the Miracle Heaters, people absolutely swear by them, repeatedly saying, “It saves money,” “looks beautiful,” and “heats from floor to ceiling to keep everyone warm and cozy.” People from all across the country are calling to get in on this deal before the deadline ends 2 days from today’s publication date. So if lines are busy be sure to call one of the overflow hotlines at 1-888-414-2503 or 1-888-414-2572 to get the Miracle Heater for just $ 99. And since all the handmade mantles that the Amish are building today are half price, nearly everyone is asking to have their Miracle Heater custom built in the Amish mantle for just one hundred fortynine dollars more because everyone who does is getting a custom finish upgrade in Light Oak, Dark Oak, Black, or Cherry for free. Just make sure you call before the deadline ends because anyone who misses the deadline can’t get in on this deal and will have to pay the regular price of $547.00 plus shipping for the Miracle Heater that comes mounted in the handmade Amish fireplace mantle.

Mardi Gras

Roswell Daily Record

Continued from Page A8

Parading started at dawn, led by 82year-old clarinetist Pete Fountain and his Half Fast Walking Club. Fountain and his group were clad in garish red suits and feathered hats. “This is my life,” he said, referring to his 63rd parade with the group he founded. “We’re going to make it before it rains.” Mardi Gras also took on a Super Bowl flavor. Baltimore Ravens’ Super Bowl stars Jacoby Jones and Ed Reed, both Louisiana natives, were aboard a Zulu float. Reed was wearing a traditional Zulu grass skirt. Nearby, three men identifying themselves as the “Superdome lighting crew” dressed in jump suits with home-made patches reading “Entergy” and name tags saying Larry, Shemp and Curly, a nod to the comedy troupe The Three Stooges. Peter Menge, 41, of New Orleans, said the power company was an easy target for lampooning after the 34-minute blackout during the Super Bowl. “The power just goes out here a lot,” he said. Mayor Mitch Landrieu led the Zulu parade on horseback in a black shirt and jeans, flanked by mounted police officers. At Gallier Hall, the old City Hall, Lan-

Westminster Dog Show

Top Dogs Shine at Top Show Every year, people and their pups gather around the TV to lap up fun and canine cuteness from the Westminster Dog Show. The Mini Page talked with an expert at the Westminster Kennel Club to learn more about the club’s famous show. The Westminster Dog Show is the second-longest continuously held sporting event in the United States. Only the Kentucky Derby has been going on longer, by just one year. The 137th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will be held Feb. 11-12 this year in New York City. Millions of people throughout the world will watch it on TV or online. In the show, 2,721 purebred dogs will compete for top honors. A purebred dog is one whose parents were both the same breed, or type, of dog. For example, if a Pekingese is a purebred, then each of its parents were also Pekingese. In competitions, people have papers proving the dog came from ancestors of the same breed.

Pooches on parade

These pointers are being judged for Best of Breed. This year dogs from 187 different breeds and varieties will be competing in the Westminster Dog Show. (Some breeds are separated even further into varieties. For example, there are three varieties of the dachshund breed: longhaired, wirehaired and smooth.) A dog considered Best of Breed will be chosen from each of these 187 breeds and varieties. The Best of Breed champs will compete against winners of other breeds that were bred for the same type of activity. For example, pointers will compete against other sporting dogs.

Dog on the job

Terrier traits

Over the years, people bred, or developed and raised, dogs that were good at certain things. Dogs might have been needed to hunt pests in people’s gardens or farms. They might have been bred to herd sheep, help hunters find birds or protect the family. People raised dogs with the characteristics, or traits, they needed for the job. For example, terriers were bred to be good at hunting down pests such as rats.

When people first bred terriers, they thought about what the dog would need to do. If a rat dives into a hole to escape, the terrier needs to be a good digger so it can go in after the rat. It needs to be small enough to fit in the rat hole. Its body needs to be flexible so it can turn corners in the underground tunnel. It can’t be so tall that it would get stuck. Its fur should be short so it won’t get tangled on plants. The dog needs to be a good fighter in case it has to defend itself. It has to have a fearless personality, so it isn’t afraid of the rat. It has to enjoy the chase.

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

This boy shows his beagle in the 2012 Westminster Junior Showmanship contest. Junior competitors, from 9 to 18 years old, are judged on their handling skills. The dogs’ traits are not judged. Winners are awarded college or technical school scholarships. The Mini Page thanks David Frei, Westminster Kennel Club, for help with this issue.

Showing dogs is a fun hobby. It can also be expensive. People often travel with their dogs all over the country, entering hundreds of shows. Many families travel to shows together, with all the family members sharing the chores. Experts say people can build strong friendships in competitions. And they get to spend time with the dogs they love. Dogs enjoy themselves too. They MIGHTTRAINFORTOMINUTESA day, just enough to keep it fun.

Malachy, a Pekingese, won Best in Show in 2012. Best in Show winners get invited to the White House. They ride on floats in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Malachy is retiring after his big win. He will be a pampered pet running after squirrels and rabbits, or maybe just sleeping.

Candy makers ready for Valentine’s Day FEATURE

Roswell Daily Record

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The day before Valentine’s Day is by far Toni Hayes’ busiest of the year. Her shop, Chocollage, in Baton Rouge will go through hundreds of dollars in receipts on that day as Valentines snap up decadent gifts for their loved ones, including chocolate, candies and stuffed animals. “You get one week and you’re just slammed,” Hayes said. Her shop offers enormous variety for chocolate- and candy-lovers of all stripes, including high-end truffles in combinations like peanut butter cayenne and retro candies like Necco wafers and candy necklaces. For Valentine’s, she’s also stocking special items like conversation hearts, a pink-red-white candy corn called cupid corn, cookies, assorted gummy candies and even pink and red tortilla chips “just for fun.” “We like to have fun,” she said, showing of f bags of chips and Cupid Crunch, a gourmet popcorn mix that also contains cherries. But chocolate is the star of her Bocage candy shop. Hayes offers truffles and candies in white chocolate, milk chocolate and all percentages of dark chocolate, including sugar-free candies sweetened with sorbitol. Some of her most popular confections are triple-dipped malted milk balls — she estimates she sells about 1,000 pounds of those in a year — sea salt caramels and turtles. There are also chocolate dipped pretzels and dried fruit, and Hayes

plans on tur ning out plenty of chocolate strawberries dipped should her supply hold out. White chocolate, she said, doesn’t really contain chocolate, but is instead a cocoa butter mixture. Then there’s the milk chocolate, which most people are familiar with, and the varying levels of dark chocolate. Dark chocolate, she said, is usually marked with the percentage of chocolate the product contains, with the higher percentages being more bitter and possibly even better for you. “They say 72 percent is where it starts helping you,” she said. Chocollage can also make up gift baskets and

bags to fit most budgets and situations, Hayes said, and some of her Valentines need all the help they can get. “Every now and then, I have a guy come in and say, ‘I’m in trouble, what do I do?’” she said, adding that they have several options that can help smooth ruf fled feathers, including a $100 Godiva heart adorned with a massive fabric flower. Over at Baum’s Fine Pastries, there’s also brisk business at both stores around Valentine’s Day. “When I tell you we have everything in a heart shape that you can imagine, we do,” Sue Odom, general manager, said, including candies,

truf fles, fudge boxes, dipped berries and pastries, including a heartshaped king cake made from brownies and filled with cream cheese. “It’s amazing,” Odom said. “It is so good.” Odom also pointed out that both locations of the bakery are open, despite a fire at the Florida Boulevard store just before Thanksgiving. “We never, ever missed one day,” she said, but many people think the damage was much worse than it was.

strawberry mousse and covered in poured ganache and topped with a red velvet chocolate heart. “It’s really just for one person; it’s small,” she said. “But you talk about amazing.” Down in New Orleans, Ann Streif fer, owner of Blue Frog Chocolates, is also awash in hearts — heart-shaped boxes, Victorian-molded chocolate hearts, heart pops and gummy hearts — along with some other, more unusual Valentine’s confections. “We have a pair of giant lips,” she said, that weigh in at about half a pound of chocolate. “They’re just gorgeous.” The store also features Italian candy flowers with

centers of sugar paste. They come in chocolate, licorice and chocolate almond flavors. Streiffer said the shop will arrange them in bouquets or sell them by the single stem. Blue Frog also pitches the health benefits of dark chocolate and offers a heart with a high cocoa content. “It’s a bigger heart than we normally have,” Streiffer said. “We call it our heart-healthy dark chocolate heart. “It’s very simple and elegant.” Sucré in New Orleans offers chocolate alongside its famous macarons. Zack Pontious, the shop’s customer service and social media coordinator, said the chocolates come in three types: red raspberry, Paris tea and malted milk. The Paris tea uses Hardy & Sons Paris tea, a fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors and a hint of lemon, to flavor the chocolate. The shop also has homemade marshmallows and a rose petal and pistachio chocolate bar. But, far and wide, the macarons are what Sucré is most known for, even on chocolate-heavy Valentine’s Day. “The macarons themselves are a red and white shell and they’ve got a white chocolate raspberry mousseline filing,” he said, and can be ordered with champagne or wine, or with the chocolates. “You can order them together,” Pontious said. “That makes a really nice gift together, I think, if you have the Valentine’s macarons and the chocolates together.”

C4 Wednesday, February 13, 2013 DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: My daughters are attractive young women, both doing well in their professional careers. “Melanie,” who is 27, is married to “Sam,” an extremely attractive and successful man. My 30-year-old daughter, “Alicia,” has been divorced for a year. Her marriage failed two years ago because she and her husband had an appetite for sex outside their marriage. While I was disturbed about that, I was horrified to learn that Melanie allows her sister to occasionally have sex with Sam.

Melanie’s argument is that Sam is less likely to cheat given this situation. When I asked her and Sam about it, he said it wasn’t his idea. My current husband says any man who would refuse this “set-up” would be nuts. Alicia claims she “doesn’t have time” to date right now, and after she finishes her MBA, she’ll seek out a more normal relationship. I am distraught about this mess. Melanie says she wants to start a family soon. She says she loves Sam, who can “handle everything,” and she enjoys seeing “everyone happy.” She says Alicia won’t sleep around now and, maybe, one day she’ll marry a handsome man like Sam who will “return the favor”! I can’t believe these girls are my daughters. Should I continue to protest or let it go? Is this relaxed attitude about sex prevalent in young people today? I cannot understand Melanie’s lack of desire to defend her turf. HEARTBROKEN MOM IN FLORIDA

COMICS

DEAR MOM: Your daughters appear to be into the concept of open marriage. Clearly, they do not view marriage and relationships the same way you do. Melanie is naive to think that encouraging Sam to have a sexual relationship with her sister will discourage him from seeking other partners. Far from it. And as for her wanting to start a family, has she considered what will happen if her husband impregnates Alicia at the same time — or first? But back to your question: Are you right to protest? You certainly are. That’s what mothers are for — to inject a dose of sanity when everyone around her is losing theirs. ##### DEAR ABBY: The other day at work, my girlfriend overheard a group of people in the break room talking about what they’d do first if they

Have you ever done an informal reader survey on this subject? Is the state of marriage in America really that bad? I’m also curious if answers would differ along gender lines. Let me know what you think, and thanks. HAPPILY SINGLE BUT STILL A BELIEVER IN MARRIAGE

DEAR HAPPILY SINGLE:

No, I have not done a reader survey on this subject. But I’m glad you asked, because I think what your girlfriend heard is a sad commentary on the state of the marriages of her co-workers. Readers, if you’d care to chime in on this, I’m sure it would be enlightening.

Gather the following ingredients: 8 ounces cream cheese (regular, low-fat or no-fat), softened 1/2 cup mayonnaise or no-fat mayo/no-fat sour cream 1 cup chopped or sliced green olives or salad olives 2 tablespoons of juice from the olive jar Dash of ground pepper (more, if you like) 1/2 cup chopped pecans Mix the ingredients together and refrigerate an hour or longer. If you want to change it up, add hot sauce, jalapenos or any other spice you like. This is one of many family recipes included in my All-Time Favorite Recipes pamphlet.

Dear Readers: Whether you are a vegetarian or just looking for something new to try, portobello mushrooms are just the thing! These are the largest of all mushrooms and have a taste very much like meat. Many restaurants offer them as a sandwich or grilled like a hamburger. This is my favorite way to enjoy them! Here are some mushroom hints: Store them in the refrigerator in the package they came in. If you buy them loose, then store them in a brown paper bag in the refrigerator. Before using (not storing), gently get rid of dirt with a damp paper towel or soft brush. Don’t soak in water, but you can clean them in cool running water. Eat up, as these mushrooms are cholesterolfree and low in calories, fat and sodium! Heloise

Dear Heloise: My favorite way to store ripe bananas is to remove the skin, place in a freezer bag and freeze. When you need a quick breakfast, put it in the blender with any liquid/ juice, milk, etc. Add some yogurt and any other fruit or berries for a smoothie. This works better than adding ice to a smoothie, as it comes out much creamier. Regina in New Jersey Dear Heloise: I often snack on potato chips. When I would like some but don’t want to get a plate dirty, I grab a coffee filter. I throw a handful of chips (or any snack) in there and use it as a temporary “bowl.” When done, I just toss the filter away. A Reader in Alaska

These filters are so inexpensive. I do the same thing with them, even with celery and carrot sticks. Heloise
